Siali said not much had changed for her either, except for with people she didn't know. People didn't look down at her when she was wearing her blues as much, which Marius figured meant because she was an elf.
“I think I do less day-to-day fighting as a Warden than I ever did as a civilian.” She said with a crooked smile as she looked over the lock she'd just popped. “It’s made life easier.”
"Yeah, it's nice not having to run every time I see a guard," Marius chuckled. "'Course joining the guard in the first place helped with that for me. They were pretty desperate when I applied."
Siali set the lock down. "So what next?"
"Well, we could do some sparring if you want?" Marius asked. "I could stretch my legs some and it's more fun if I've got someone to do it with. Plus, I'd like to see what you can do." He grinned a bit. "Figure you've got some fancy moves on you."

Siali and Marius had both benefited from their upgrade in status. Siali had been used to running whenever she saw anybody in authority for pretty much her entire life and Marius had been under similar circumstances. If it wasn’t for the darkspawn nightmares the whole thing would be a pretty nice deal, even allowing for the reduced lifespan. Leastways she didn’t have to worry about dying in a slum somewhere with her wits gone and her body crumbling.
That was a grim thought. She distracted herself by asking what they’d be doing next.
Instead of pushing over another lock, Marius suggested sparring. "I could stretch my legs some and it's more fun if I've got someone to do it with. Plus, I'd like to see what you can do." He grinned. "Figure you've got some fancy moves on you."
Now there was a proposition that appealed. Siali grinned back. “I wouldn’t call them fancy, particularly. Just dirty. But sure, that sounds fun.” She didn’t think she’d ever sparred with Marius and she liked squaring off against other rogues. Warriors were too predictable and mages were – well, they didn’t even have to aim right to make her head explode. The best way to fight a mage was from a distance with a bow.
She stood up, fingers compulsively tidying away the little bits of mechanism and lock in front of her, before leading the way down to the yard. She remembered that she was supposed to be doing some practice with axes, but if she did that today she wouldn’t be able to show off as much. The balance in an axe was completely different to a sword and it was taking some work to get used to it.
She found a couple of straight-edged practice swords and swung her arms about, warming up. She bounced on her toes slightly. The prospect of a fight, even a friendly one, always fired her up. “You ready?”
Cyn: No posts this weekend, sorry! It's D&D crunch time and I've gotta write half a campaign by noon tomorrow or I'm so very screwed

JWhiteyGames: Hello! And thanks! I did. I was just looking to see if anyone was on in general. After reading the guidelines and peeking a bit more though, I realized the box isn't used the same as before.
