Southwestern Evylon, in the Blackdrake Range.
Cloudy and dull.
Current! Late afternoon.
Maaru, Kavylar (Blazeh), Antalia (Jay)
It was cold, and the breeze that whistled among the rocks did nothing to alleviate that fact. A lone figure, dressed in warm linen and a thick fur cloak stood upon an outcropping of jutting rock that overlooked a large section of the Blackdrake Range. He was young, human, with fine features and long wolf-golden hair; he had expressive green eyes squinted against the cold. A long, double-ended spear lay strapped to his back, while his right arm was wrapped in a tattered sling.
With a sigh, the young man began his descent back down the trail he'd come up, easily spotting his two companions and their horses far below. His mount, a palomino mare with a white face and blue eyes, nickered at him as she saw him, while the other two munched happily at grass beneath their hooves.
"There's no real easy way through the Tailbone," Maaru said, sliding a few feet down the last part of the path before jogging back to them. "It's all sheer shale." He paused. "But it's the quickest way south. We could go west here and then dip down, or leagues to the east and down, but... they're already days ahead of us, right?"
He looked at Antalia and smiled, while Kavylar scowled. "I mean, we have the best horses Heartwood could offer so we could do it... but it's up to you, Tali. Do you want to try?"
