With enough time on his hands, Creamor had found a suitable site for his summoning. He had researched exactly which creature he wanted to call during the long journey inside his box and more recently inside the secret tunnel.
Strix Regis, also known as King Owl were known on the continent for their ability to catch and carry away children as easily as normal owls could do so with mice.
The majestic creatures weren't as silent as their smaller cousins, but made good mounts through their great strength. Although mount wasn't exactly the right word: They could be trained to carry people without harming or accidentally dropping them - usually by grabbing them in the middle, leaving their burden the ability to use their arms.
He was just explaining the concept to Timeon, when Lars appeared:"Well met my friend. I was just about to call up your rides. Our young friend here wasn't entirely convinced, but I can assure you both: For the next five minutes this creature will be the most loyal and reliable servant you ever knew. Since time will be of the essence, ready your weapons and equipment, so we can fly immediately once it has appeared."
When the fire bells finally sounded, Creamor drew his whip and drew a complex sigil in the air. A long, drawn out screech could be heard and a black bird, easily the size of a horse appeared from thin air."Time to fly my comrades..."
