Ting is Ting.... a ranger that needs little.
Is Journal: Ting left Tangled trees on a whim..... will nae be missed.... the woods the lands is where she needs to be. Moving at night... sleeping at day found a place... GreatGaunt... in Cormyr. Ting runs into dwarves halfers humans and elves of all sorts. First few weeks were hard... explored the lands... herbs! can be found. Met Ezra.. Ja.... who showed Ting places to sleep and where to range. They also showed how to find herbs fro all purposes. They ahve been solid friends so far. Finding that good archers are needed here as well. A human and Halfer took Ting to goblin fort.... needed Tiong for archer skills... but shite they cut stuff down..... will wrtie more stuff soon
Tings rules A. Be Ting 1. Do not die 2. Ghost Wolves are NOT pets 3. Patience in all things 4. Nae shoot first... dumbarse 5. Pink mushrooms are bad! 6. Invisibility potions.... have them 7. Keep distance to frontliners.... always unless sneaking ahead for position... then Ting is Ting 8. Listen.... a good dog is nae a dog that barks all day
Ting was given a test..... to find a druid and help him in the malarite lands. Ting has scout to the area before, but walked back once seen the beasts there.
Ting gained the assistance of Otter and Kharne ( two of most trusted friends ). They were both up to the task, and had knowledge of what Ting would face.
Ting was grateful for the assistance, besides the animals that attacked. We found the druid Senalek, whom gave us the task of finding fellow druid Tera. We progressed to the Malarites. Those shapeshifting pieces of shite. It was a long battle.... Kharne calling up his companions, he and Otter holding the melees back while Ting searched for targets and let fly. Moving to stay within distance but out of way so they can focus on task at hand. Ting never fires first anymore so not to draw attention and searches for archers and mages to counter then looks to the front.
We gained entrance to a cave ( always a freaking cave ) and again were set upon my malarites. Ting is learning close bow combat.... let fly fast and furious. A few more fell, and Ting found a key. Heard a voice and found Tera behind bars. Releived Ting opened the gate and calmed the lass down. Hearing she was released.... then it happened.... she shifted... to a werewolf.... and attacked Ting! sadly we had no retort and put her down quickly. Ting acquired Tera's staff. We fought way back the Senalek and Ting gave the sad new. He understood.
Ting felt.... good and bad.... like always there is good and evil, black and white and always shades of grey. Ting will ponder this for a while... this felt like none of those... Ting did good but was too late so felt... sadness... which Ting nae likes.

So Ting is sitting in treehouse miding business, drinking a little wine and considering why Ting is Ting..... when Ting heard a ruckus... always curious Ting poked head down and saw.... like 15 rabid dogs...having some prey cornered..... Ting decided to act... jumped down.... and yelled at the dogs "Bark barkbarkbark * translates - hey leave whatever it is alone -" The hounds growled back.... and Ting heard an even more mean growl in the corner..... Ting decided to act... fired and the hounds were put down....
In the corner... Ting found a growling snarling.... matted fur with blood all over.... it was... a wolverine.... and it was still pissy. Ting threw some fresh venison toward it.... snarling it accepted.... while it was eating... Ting chewed up some wound seal and began to apply while it was eating... is bitched like all hells but calmed down after feeling the affects..... Ting gave it a cup of wine as well...
The beast.... still snarling... trusted Ting as took to treehouse and nursed wounds for three days..... gave it a bath * was so pissy * tended to its wounds * god was pissy *... fed it * never pissy when fresh meat *.
Now Ting needs to find a name.... and yes.... he does bite...

The Tale of Fang. Ting grew up in the Tangled Trees.... small clan, very tight. Ting was born to be a ranger, following a long line of rangers. The stories told were always a mixture of myth and truth, some stretched some. Ting's grandfather told her the first legend story ever and many hundred years old. Agis was one of the greatest rangers the clan ever had. Said was only seen if wanted to be seen. His legend became epic during the spider wars. All types of giants spiders had invaded the lands in search of land and... well food.
According to the story, Agis took matter into his own hands and began to single-handedly hunt the spiders down. Stalked, hunted, preyed on. Was said he glided over the webs, in total silence. He also crafted a bow himself and rumor had it that it was made from the fangs of several different Queen spiders he eliminated. He named his final creating "Fang" and it was said to enhance Agis's abilities but no one ever really knew.
Through his efforts, the invasion was halted, after pretty much all the Queens disappeared. This is where the legend turns, Agis, one of the few of the clan to ever leave..... and he did just that. His quest was to venture throughout all the Tangled Trees. But few ever really saw him.... stories of an elf from other clans, and stories of a stranger aiding them, and poof.... gone. His bow was supposed to have giant spider fangs adorning it. Then the stories were fewer and farer between and his name... just became a bedtime story.... One story was that Agis died of old-age and his bow was actually stolen when grave found, but that is just another story.

Ting told that story to tell this story. Ting was clan's best ranger at young age because of grandfather's mentoring. She may never be solid in melee... but her bow skills were noted at an early age. When Ting was ready for clan test, she revealed to him that she was not coming back, and he knew this all along.
His last words to Ting were "Make Agis proud with your wanderings, do good and head far to the east" and places a necklace with a fang around her neck. Ting never turned back and the story reminded in the back of her mind along time, but it has to be a myth. Ting traveled through many lands and found Waymoot and the Guardians and many more. Ting's skills have progressed and has surrounded with proper friends. Which brings to recent events.
Snear, Zyla, Mistle, Nathanial and Ting went on a hunt most recent. WQhite Dragon Cave was destination and things progressed nicely till we approached nearer the cave and lands around. Tracks were hard to follow but something different was out there. Even with solid track skills, few tracks could be found. Almost as if the hunters had become the hunted. We fought though a handful of ogres and here is when things went chaotic. A bloody Ice Giant appeared out of no where.... massive... Mistle, Snear and Nathaniel wasted little time up front while Zyla and Ting let loose from the back. It fell after a wicked bad battle.
Licking our wounds... something was noticed under the giant..... it literally took all hands to roll the giant over. Its pack was separated in battle from him and lay crushed underneath. We searched through the remnants and a very old bow was found... encrusted in snow from the battle. We cleaned it oft, and it looked like pictures Ting had seen in books. It was a fine looking bow, but something was not... quite... proper..... with was broken somehow. Ting examined the bow and noticed the sight was missing on the range finder. We all studied it until a light bulb went oft in Tings head. The FANG! She produced it * had really had it for like 7 months * and it was a perfect fit. However, Ting did not have the proper skills to fix it.
They all talked and decided that Ting will pursue fixing it. Speaking with Mistle and Snear it was planned that the Guardians would be the answers to see if their craters would have knowledge and ability. Ting agreed and will speak with the Guardians at next meeting.
Ting began the day with a simple plan.... forage at the pond and make way toward Waymoot. How plans change in an instant.
Ting entered the bramble woods, and something was amiss right oft the bat. Ting went into the shadows and about 300 feet into the woods and there she spotted three DROW! Ting went on defensive and sunk deeper into the shadows and followed the three. One broke off and actually entered Greatgaunt. The other two followed...... Ting waited a few moments and then entered GG. Seeing no Drow.... she meandered down the hill and found Sylus.
Ting informed Sy what was going on, and told him to act natural while Ting scouted the area. Ting followed the tracks and found the both gates open. Sy and Ting then found Cele and Natham dead and found a group of drow behind the farm house. Dispatched.... they went to center of town and found a group. After another encounter Ting found a group of tracks heading back into the Bramble, and Ting also found a different set of tracks....
It was a female drow... Ting caught her scent and tracks and noted the differences. It is something Ting will nae forget. Her tracks were definitely being guarded by others. Sy, Thev (the golden monk ) DD and Ting decided to enterd the Bramble and follow or cut off the Drow before found their home or a cave.
It was then Ting found that the two groups had formed one larger group lead by HER. We went deeper before Ting spotted a group ahead and a Wizard trying to stay hidden oft to the left. Ting felled the wizard and the other three dispatched the group. It was here where Ting saw the two groups split with HER still leading the second group.
Slowly we proceeded.... seeing it was getting close to dawn and Ting spotted the tracks into a cave.
We entered... five tracks were there and only four drow..... SHE was not there. We figured with her power... she teleported herself to safety leaving her guards to face us.

SO Ting and Wylan are sitting having a nice conversation in Greatgaunt, when an treant.... approached us... and informed that Orcs were attacking and setting forest on fire.....
Ting.... concerned... and they made sure was not Mistle playing a prank followed the Treant to the bramble.... There... the two found forty or so orcs... setting fire to Ting's forest.... Ting set several traps and they attacked... arrows were loosed at a terrifying rate and the orcs numbers dwindled.... they they took to putting out the fires and a second round attacked.... raptor claws shredded orc as did arrows.....
Again they sent the wave away and set to putting the fires out. It was them.... a few casters appeared and the battle took full fight.
Wylan and Ting cornered one final caster arrows hit... bounded off and he... bloody vanished.
The Treant approached... and told the pair his name was Little Leaf.... and was watching... Ting!
On the way back to GG, Ting asked, Wylan if the treant came looking for Ting.... he responded... "Get used to it, you are known now...."
Ting will have to think on this as fringe is where she performs best.
