Mountain of Ordeals - Temple in the Sky
Nearing their destination the sun began to rise and the storm faded away, it was as if there were a calm air surrounding the Monastery. Though the blizzard had passed monsters still roamed the mountain's path, one monster in particular that posed a threat was the dreaded Frost Troll that over looked the path from a tall peak. Stenvar and Marcurio were persistent on getting the reluctant dragonborn to High Hrothgar and took care of the beast with a few swings of Stenvar's hammer and some strategic use of fire on Marcurio's part.
"No way some puny troll'll stop us," Stenvar stated with a cocky smile.
"We've come too far to quit here, not much further now," stated Marcurio "Hopefully this ancient temple is heated with a warm fire."
After the harsh cold and deadly battles the three adventures finally reached the temple.
"I've you two to thank for this, I would've never made it alone," Julien said gratefully to his companions.
The snarky mage smirked "You can say that again, you wouldn't have lasted a minute out here without my wizardly expertise."
"Well we made it, and that's what matters," said Stenvar as the trio climbed the final steps.
Upon entering four robed elders greeted them with distant stares. Julien nervously stepped closer to Stenvar for protection. No words were spoken for a short time, the robed men just stared at Julien though it was as if they were looking at his soul rather than his physical self. Could this humble healer truly be a chosen warrior destined to fight off the Eater of Worlds.
One of the Grey bearded robed men stepped forward and whispered in his withered voice, "I see you heard our call. It is one thing to be the Dragon Born and absorb the souls of a Dragon, yet it is another, virtuous strength that drives one to discover more of his destiny and learn to hone his skills. You've passed a test alone by simply showing up. That shows determination."
Julien hesitantly stepped forward, "I am not sure what use I would be to you but I can't watch a world in turmoil be destroyed an not do anything about it. Please, I must learn of this power and use it protect everyone . . . I may be weak but my spirit is strong."
"This is just the start Young Dovahkiin.

(dumb side note.... I lost my old eyebrow mod I used, so if anyone recognizes it on the screenshot of Stenvar, let me know. I've tried HQ Eyebrows and a couple of others with no success.)
