Before the gates of the Hin Fist Monastary... Elon Dana adopts the three circle stance of his training of his home land.
If a junior of the temple passes him going into or out of the monastery, Elon ask they pass on a message to their abbot.
He wishes to make a sharing and exchange of the art of the hermitage with them and his own experience he has had with the broken ones order temple of Ilmater and with the Triad order of the Divine Resurrection.
He breaks not his stance though, 30 feet away in front of the monastery gate patiently he waits.
A tenday later after his held stance for a full day Elon with no reply yet from the abbot ... returns to adopt the three circle stance before the gates of the Monastary of the Hin Fist.
He lays on the grass between himself and the gate of the monastary 3 gifts he hopes the Order will acept from him.
A pair of boar hide leather boots (Craft Armor Result: 27 vs DC 10)
A bear hide leather cloak (Craft Armor Result: 28 vs DC 10)
A pair of bear hide masterwork leather gloves (Craft Armor Result: 23 vs DC 15)
Each item he made by his own hands, gathered the materials himself and tailored them for hin wearers.
When a junior or the monastary heads into or out of the front gates he once humbly result that they convey to the abbot that he, Elon Dana, wishes to exchange arts of the hermitage and culture of the hermitages with his own experience with the broken ones order of Ilmater and the Triad Order of the Divine Resurrection.
He also asks the junior to take in the items he has made himself and he expresses he hopes they will accept them and hope they will server the hin fist order well.
And Elon Dana thus waits for a reply holding his 3 circle stances for another full day if he must.
ooc: below attached to this forum post is the screen caps of the items left for the hin fist order
Another tenday arrives and Elon does the same again. His patiently takes the three circle stance like before outside the gate of the Hin Fist Temple in shallybrook and runs into Elysia Arnan Swiftfoot (ooc: player HazeledLightning)
He asks her to convey the same message as before and gives to her to give to her abbot on his behalf a 3rd circle monk robes with a 2nd circle endurance blessing on it.
He explains the following about the robes to Elysia:
'The robes's name is Ru'Faera'Ess and are robes enhanced by Nyora'lanna'ira Alean'atear
These once perhaps old robes have been carefully scribed along the hems with gossamer depicting faintly glowing Elven runes. Mostly in repetition are "Bear" and "Champion" and other symbols linked to endurance and of course the imblers' marks are written with diamond intertwined with dusk where she has fused her power into the permanency of the imbuement.'
He then continues the hold the stance for 24 hours or until the abbot sends for him.
ooc: ICly robe is given to the abbot of the hin fist temple in shallybrook but OOCly it is Trashed
Elysia carefully bundles the large robes up in her small arms, stepping confidently with a balance to her gait as she enters the monastery after having said her farewell to Elon and warned the elf about any diligently working bees that may stray from the nearby beekeeper.
Upon her movement through the monastery she greets any other student who isn't busy with a simple nod and wide, ebullient, smile that displays her fearless hinnish confidence and pride. She carries the robes towards where she might know the abbot to reside, and if there, would offer the delivery of Elon's goodwill gift and begin relaying all the elf had told her of it and of the elf's wishes to exchange experiences and teachings between orders.
Another gift of good-will is left in Elysia's small but trusted hands for the Hin Fist Monastery of Shallybrook's Abbot in hopes for cultural exchange between the Hin fist with the Broken Ones and the Triadic Order stationed in the keep near evening star.
This time it is a 'Band of Austerity - Lesser'
And a peronsal token of gratefulness does Elon leave with Elysia herself, a luckstone of his homeland found in Cormyr, a flawless jade stone.
Once more Elon must borrow the skilled and trusted hands of one Elysia Arnan Swiftfoot (ooc: player HazeledLightning)
He leaves her tokens of good will he hopes will be judged sincere by her order's Abbot and her Elders of the hin fist order of Shallybrook.
He leaves in her hands, freely given, a bar of adamentine and a dagger skilled in cutting bandages to the correct length (dagger with +1 heal skill on it).
What she and her order does with it, is up to them fully.
He, along with the message that he sincerely wishes to exchange practises and the art of his own order of the Broken Ones and the Triadic Order with the Hin Fist Order, he offers his skills of a healer and that of a smith to them. May his offer, if ever called upon, may heaven favor his humble skills of healer and smith ... and be of true and good use to the hin fist order.
Elysia makes her way back to the monastery in Shallybrook, little feet having been given their days work in her focused state to move with a natural swift foot. At the doors and halls within she merrily greets other students not in meditation as now has become custom of her to do.
She next greets the orders resident healer, offering the medical dagger and its greetings and well wishes from Elon the Triadic Monk, often titled Elven Horse — a joke she explains with a small happy burst of laughter from herself that echoes through the room.
The bar of adamantine is decidedly kept on herself after discussion as the metal is better put to use in her Paladin duties. With better equipment she can better serve Yondalla, providing more aid and assistance against greater foes that threaten the town.
-Elon stands in the stream before the gates of the Hin Fist Order Temple of Shallybrook.
Once more from dawn break til sun set he takes his 3 circles stance and waits for someone of the Temple to come speak to him.
Ever hoping to officially begin relations of good will and sharing of the hermitages art between the Hin Fist and his own Triadic Order.
If ever Rolf or Elysia pass him, he hands them a small wooden case and tells them it is for the Abbot and please pass on this is a gift of good will and his wishes this may begin the trading of the hermitage arts between their 2 orders.
The case has for the Abbot has in it gems of King's Tear. Three of them. One of lesser, one of average, and one of flawless quality.
A gem that can be used for blessing armor or robes with finesse.-
Rolf would take the gem box in a meaty hand and head inside the small monastery. A brother of the order greets him outside of the Abbot's office, telling him that the Abbot cannot be disturbed. Rolf doesn't seem to mind and hands the young hin the box to deliver to the Abbot when he is free. He then takes a few minutes to look around the great hall before heading out.

Elon has given to Rolf, a pair of brown bear hide boots and a brown bear hide cloak, made by his own hands, hides gathered by his own hands.
As always he asks Rolf to pass on the boots and cloak to a younger brother or sister of his of the Hin Fist Order when he done with the wares.
And as always, he asks Rolf express to the Hin Fist Order, he Elon of the Triadic Order, will glad make such wares for them, he does so to sincerely express his want and willingness to begin relations of good will and sharing of hermitage arts between their 2 orders.
*Perirry Deed continues to tend the graves in the cemetery in Shallybrook. Each day she says a prayer to Urogalan at the alter, then another at each grave, and once more at the alter. Additionally she can be seen sweeping, dusting, and generally keeping things in order at the Hin Fist Monastery. She goes through her routine at least three times a day maybe more. The rest of the day she can be seen practicing her martial arts. Whether she is seen training on dummies, hardening her fists against trees, or performing sequences of movements, the small woman is almost never idle.*

Cade watches the blonde hin as she trains. Staying out of sight, or so he think, He attempts the movements himself. Not sure he is doing it right or not but continues as he watches from the treeline. He does this day after day for nearly two weeks. Soon after he builds up the courage and walks into the temple to ask to be trained.
The Hin known as Peri is seen coming and going more often from the monastery. She is seen at the maidens burrow for hours at a time. She continues to attend to her self imposed duties at the monastery and the cemetery. And she is also seen training new initiates in the way of the hin fist.

Cade now being a member of the hin fist for a little more then a month has taken very well to his training. Even going as far as putting what he has learned to use in the field. Goblins, and kobolds have been his targets as he strengthens his skill. From time to time he watches the cute blond Peri train. Her skill is beyond what he knows currently. She makes it look easy. He has yet to approach her however. He has only watched from afar.

Cade has begun to perfect what he has learned as he continues on with his training. Splitting time between temple training and field application Cade continues to push himself. He is excited for what the future has in store.
Elon, after much time has past in self isolation of prayer and practise, the monk of the Triadic Order returns to sit and meditate silently and non-intrusively in front of the Hin Fist Monastery gates, hoping for someone to perhaps meet and talk with him or perhaps invite him inward.
He expresses to any one going in or out of the table, to please pass on his words of friendship and good will he wishes to the elders of the Hin Fist Order. That he wishes to extend a bond of allyship and mutual teaching and learning from one another. That he believes that his order and the Hin Fist Order can have a sincere warm regard and support of another other.
And of course he is more then willing to use his meager crafting skills to manifest that support, if any of the Hin Fist Order ask of him so.
After 3 hours, he leaves humbly and silently as he came, if no one speaks to him.
Elon once sits in humble silence and focus before the gates of the Hin Fist monastery .... as always he expresses his wishes to any of the Hin Fist Order's member that enter or leave via the gates of his wishes to have a bond of good will, allyship, and exchange of hermitage arts and monk practices between there own and his own Triadic Order. And if it is no trouble, please share his wishes with the Order's Abbot(s)
He also share a gift and tale. He had defeated a white dragon in the snow topped mountains and hills near Tyrluk. And in its throat was a magic clay ring, that only monks can use. Some terrible fate must have met this lost one of the hermitage way.
He asks the order look after this ring, and use it to what end their order believes is best.
After three hours, Elon humbly and silently leaves.
OOCly the ring was left on the map to despawn, but ICly given to an NPC member of the Hin Fist Order in Shallybrook
Elon splits up his time of three houses hoping and silently waiting before the gates of the Hin Fist Order in Shallybrook.
The 1st hour he holds horse stance still and unmoving....presenting the Spider Silk Monk Robes with his own hands unfolded in his hands.
The 2nd hour is the same but cat stance
The 3rd hours is Goat stance
Any of those going in and out of the gates he pleas once more humbly that they take this robe made by his own hands, as a gift to their order.
Proof of manifested of wishes of good will, allyship, friendship, and exchange of knowledge between his Triadic Order and the Hin Fist Order.
He leaves as silently as he came if no word from a senior monk or Abbot reaches him while he is here, but he grateful never the less for a member of the order accepting his gift and presenting it to their abbot soon they say.
-After making it to the lone cliff ...after careful and slow climb and balancing to it....he sits in full lotus relaxing his eyes to nearly closed...allowing his breathe to slow, calm, and deepen...subtle
... his entire being is only the breathe....even the pleasing gentle rushing of water near him he nears not
...and after a long while...he leaves and ends his session-
-Elon meditates for 3 hours before the gates of the Hin Fist Order Temple. Returning to basics...solely does his watch the breath....in and out...out and in .... without ego, without attachment in his focus and silence is the practise
If any of the Hin Fist Order greet him...during or after the practice ... Elon greets them warmly and sincerely in reply and gives them gifts for the order. Four bolts of Darkleaf cloth ... and three leather hides from Displacer Beasts.
Manifest of his wishes for allyship, bonds of good will and exchange of knowledge and philosophy of the Hermitage arts and monk practices between the Hin Fist Order...and his own order.
Elon leaves as non-intrusive as he can be. Ever hopeful he be.-
OOC: Items left to despawn ... but the ICly items given to the leader(s) of Shallybrook Hin Fist temple

Shana visits the monastery and speaks with the Abbot briefly & tells him that she has given up her retirement and returned to adventuring.
She endorses working with Elon & tells the Abbot of how the monk has helped her and her friends in times of need. She tells him a story about how half her party were turned to stone by beholders and Elon made their rescue possible and found a way to restore them from petrification and refused to take money in return, telling them only to help others in need. She tells the Abbot that Elon and his order would be great friends and allies for Shallybrook to have.
