 ADVENTURES OF BULIS THE BARBARIAN
 
 It was warm and sunny day. Young minotaur called Bulis was returning back to
Ooggas camp after he had succesfully performed a task which was given to him
by elder barbarians. Bulis had dreamed for long that the other barbarians
would see his full potential and would finally accept him as respected member
by giving him an elder status. It would be so nice to send some others to do
there trivial task tought Bulis and laughed a bit when he tought few suitable
candidates in his mind.
 
 Day had been a very long and tiresome one and Bulis was only half way back to
camp when he started to get hungry. He knew that he could get something to eat
back at the camp, but that was still hours away. Why I always have to leave so
early that theres hardly any time to get any food with me, grunted Bulis and
continued walking.
 
 After a while Bulis came to an opening in a forest and saw two figures
lounging by the road side. One of them seemed to be quite short, maybe a
hobbit, tought Bulis. Another one was bit taller and it was obvious by looking
that long tail that this one was member of catfolk race. Bulis walked closer
to two and greeted them, greetings strangers
 
 Hello to you too, said hobbit my name is Fuslac Pipe and this is my friend
Thicra Chad.
 
 Bulis took closer look to a hobbit and saw his intrument, fine looking lute.
Sure he must be a bard, he tought.
 
 We are are travelling to a city of Shadowkeep where I can meet some of my old
friends and Thicra can do some trading said Fuslac
 
 Come and join us we are just having a break here and you can taste some
products I am going to sell in Shadowkeep said Thicra
 
 Uuuh food thinks Bulis and sits down. Thank you for invitation he said.
 
 I have made these myself and I hope you like them, says Thicra
 
 Thicra opened big basket and took various items out of it. Some of which
Bulis had never seen but they all looked very delicious and he got even more
hungry.
 
 Even I have made these I cant take credit for actually inventing them. My
father tought it would be a time for me to get a profession and start to earn
some money. He then sent me to a great city of Arelium in Laenor and there I
was to start my training with master chef Teapot. Teapot was not my only
trainer, I visited others too in several continens and here I am now, said
Thicra.
 
 Thicra then lectured Bulis about foods that were presented, about their names
and properties. There were a large brown kalakukko, salmon griller, leaf of
banana bread, warm yellow slice of quiche, venison pocket pie and so on. Bulis
had hard time to keep up with all the information Thicra was giving. Bulis
tasted foods and found them delicious, one of the foods called a serving of
pancakes and sausage was particilary to his liking.
 
 You are really good cook Thicra, Bulis said. There will be no problems for
you to get you products sold in the Shadowkeep or anywhere else for that
matter. Wish I had you skills said Bulis happily
 
 Thank you for your kind words Bulis. You know I had no idea about cooking at
all before I started my training in Arelium and I now see how wise my father
was when he sent me there. You know you can follow my path if you really want
Bulis. said Thicra.
 
 Bulis spent some time with Fuslac and Thicra after they had eaten. Fuslac
sang some songs and told interesting stories about great heroes and and
events. Fuslac was really good performer thought Bulis.
 
 Thank you for you hospitality friends I will put some good word on you both
and I hope our paths will cross again said Bulis and thanked Fuslac and Thicra
again.
 
 Bulis started to walk towards camp again, but then he saw by the position of
the sun time he had lost with his friends and shouted  AIIEEEEEEE. Its better
run rest of the way so that elders dont make me wash Ooggas underwears again,
thought he.
 
 Back at camp same night Bulis rolled over,clutching his pillow, and tried to
fall back asleep. No matter how he tried, days events prevented him from
sleeping. All that food, could I ever be as good as Thicra tought he. It made
him uneasy. With sigh, he rolled out of bed,poured a drink from the canteen.
He sat there few for hours thinking and then he said I have to try.
 
 Bulis spent next few days at camp doing his duties and errands as usual. In
his thoughts he was doing something totally different and other barbarians
could not understand his good mood. There was really no point of even trying
to tell them as other had totally different things in their mind. Barbarians
were preparing for upcoming blood bowl event which was to be held next day. As
the long waited blood bowl event day came, all of the barbarians at the camp
were really busy of preparing trip to barbarian arena which was located half
days way from main the campment. Bulis was packing some of his belongins too
but his reasons and goals were not same as others. When others started their
trip towards arena Bulis took his backpack, waited his opportunity, and when
nobody was looking he started his own trip with different destion on which
first step would be in Rothikgen ferry.
 
 After a day Bulis arrived to ferry and asked around on few seaworthy looking
ship if they would able to take him to Laenor he got answer he was looking and
started his journey towards Laenor. Ship sailed along tradelane and after some
time Bulis didnt feel so good anymore, he became seasick. At the same ship
were some other passangers too, a duck couple mage and druid. Damn those ducks
thought Bulis as he was sure they were laughing at his pale face. If minotaurs
were born to be sailors had they been given fins, he muttered by himself.
 
 At the end ship and Bulis with it made to the Laenor. Bulis made his way to
the city of Arelium and he was amazed by the size of it all. He had never seen
such a big place, bazaars guild people it was almost owerhelmig to our young
minotaur. Luckily guards were friendly enough and with the instuctions given
by Thicra knew Bulis to ask way to the Arelium pantry, Guards gave him
directions and Bulis started to walk towards pantry. After a while he arrived
before building which had pantry sing on in and walked in. Inside pantry he
was greeted by chef named Teapot.
 
 Bulis explained how he had met Thicra Chad on his travels and how he was
introduced to these delicious foods by that day and that he now had travel
here to seek knowledge and guidance to be able to be cheft himself someday.
Teapot was happy to hear that Thicra was well and making such good foods for
people to enjoy. Bulis and Teapot then spent long hours discussing different
things about cooking and arrangements in genaral. Finally Teapot was convinced
that Bulis was serious about his business and accepted him as his apprentice.
They agreed that Bulis would get taught on secrets of food making and that he
would in return help Teapot and others to run pantry.
 
 Three months went by and Bulis learned more and more about cooking, After one
morning Teapot asked to to see Bulis and said You have learned all I have to
teach you, now its time you go seek more traininging with other friends I
know. I will give letter with you so that they can regognize you and your
skill level and will offer you place to stay and more teaching in the arts of
cooking'
 
 So ventured Bulis forward and after years training at various places we has
done with his training, His travels had taken him to Lucentium where he lived
with catfolks, to Furnachia where he lived in a cozy manor, back to Lucentium
again to a minig site and then back to laenor again to a Dark castle. Now that
his training was done and he had earned title of a master chef he suddenly
remember where it all started and especialy those pancakes.
 
 Lets see he mutters to himself and opens his cook book. Egg, milk, surgar,
honey, and sausage, should be easy enough. Honey is only problem I would like
to use premium honey for this one thinks Bulis. To Lucentium heads Bulis next
for he has heard that there area beehives in Village of Shrea and nun called
sister Jenifer is tending them there.
 
 Bulis arrives to village and heads to beehive area. There he sees woman
walking and approaches her.
 
 Greeting my name is Bulis and I came here to see if I could get some honey
here for my cooking purposes says bulis.
 
 Hello Bulis, I am sister Jenifer and I work here as beekeeper, says sister
with smiling. Sure you can get honey here lets me explain few things first
says sister. We rent beehives here so you can get your own honey and our
monestery gets some funds. You need some honeycombs and and veil to protects
you from bees and those I can sell to you does it good to you? asks sister
 
 Sure it does, Bulis says and nods
 
 OK here take these honeycombs and veil and I will guide you to your beehive
then says sister and guides Bulis close to empty beehive. Open beehive and put
honecombs inside, then wait 1 day or so and your honey should be ready, just
remember to wear veil when you come to colletct honey says sister. If you need
place to stay you can ask room at the nearby village theres some friends
hobbits there who will surely welcome you. says sister
 
 Thanks for your help  says Bulis and inserts combs in to the beehive and
closes it.  I will go to hobbit village now say Bulis and waves to sister.
 Netx morning Bulis heads back to his beehive and tries to remember what
sister said. Wear beehive and that was about it Bulis thinks. As he tries to
wear his veil it gets stuck to his horns and he yanks a bit, causing veil to
tear. Bulis wonders a bit what to do but since sister is taking care of
business elsewhere and he really wants to get honey he opens beehive anyway.
BZZZZZZZtttt! swarm of angry bees rush out of beehive and sting Bulis multiple
times before he can even react. Pain is intorable and he starts run screaming
towards hobbit village. He gets to village and explains situation to hobbits
who start laugh like madmen. After hobbits regain composure they agree to go
and collect honey for Bulis and close his beehive.
 
 That was last time I go there says Bulis still in pain. If Groo would ment
minotaurs to be beekeepers he would not give us horns, grunts Bulis.
 Bulis stays with hobbits few days and after his stings feel better and
swelling has gone he desides to head back Rothikgen. It has been almost a year
since I left, hope Oogga doesnt kill me when I return thinks Bulis.
 
 Bulis travels back to Ooggas camp and get bombarded with questions etc. He
has been taken before Oogga who after tasted some foods Bulis brought with him
decides not to kill Bulis. After some time things settle down and months go by
and miracle happens. Bulis is promoted to elder barbarian, was this due his
brutal nature and skills in art of killing or maybe by his famous food?
 
 This was the story of Bulis the first barbarian master chef.
