Apr 12 Pt 3

[20:04] Shadowcaller: I attempt to contact her while we are traveling from town then
[20:05] Happy: "Hello my dear."
[20:05] Shadowcaller: "Hello Helena, too bad I can't contact you as often as I want… I got a very eventful life apperently."
[20:06] Happy: "If I were more powerful, I could come to you on my own."
[20:07] Shadowcaller: "You would? Any way to increase your power?"
[20:08] Happy: "I would need more worshippers."
[20:08] Shadowcaller: "Advertising then?"
[20:09] Happy: "I don't really see you as the type to become a prophet."
[20:09] Shadowcaller: "Neither do I… I guess Aegnor could do something for you, he is that type of person."
[20:11] Murska: (I foresee the need to flesh out the whole 'worshipper-energy' thing)
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (We do.)
[20:12] Happy: "What can I do for you, dearest?"
[20:12] Shadowcaller: "Well… I just heard a very stange story from Aegnor."
[20:12] Happy: "Oh?"
[20:13] Shadowcaller: "Yes, he helped me cure sickness, in my mind…"
[20:13] Happy: "You have your magic back?"
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "I do… he cured the brokeness in my mind."
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "By travelling into it."
[20:16] Happy: "You must be so relieved. But letting someone into your mind - weren't you frightened?"
[20:17] Shadowcaller: "I put a great deal of trust on him… and my brother, they both helped me."
[20:17] Happy: "I'm happy for you. I don't think I could trust a man so much though."
[20:19] Happy: (Link: http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/funny-dog-pictures-snow-dai.jpg)http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/funny-dog-pictures-snow-dai.jpg
[20:19] Shadowcaller: "Well, I just did, I didn't really think it as anything special, it needed to be done after all."
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (^^)
[20:20] Murska: (Happy! Beat THAT move in Crescent!)
[20:24] Happy: "I don't pretend to understand. But at least it worked."
[20:25] Shadowcaller: "It did… and apperently he saw some amazing things in my mind."
[20:26] Happy: She laughs. "I imagine so. Your mind must be an amazing place."
[20:26] Shadowcaller: "Yes… not sure I want to tell many about it thought."
[20:27] Happy: "But you want to tell me?"
[20:27] Shadowcaller: "Well, I guess you would like to know?"
[20:28] Happy: "Of course. You're my favourite mortal, after all."
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "I'm the only mortal you know…"
[20:29] Happy: She laughs. "A technicality."
[20:30] Shadowcaller: "I really wish you could be more healthy Helena, you must be so depended on me."
[20:31] Happy: "It doesn't matter."
[20:32] Shadowcaller: "I will talk with Aegnor later, we can help you."
[20:33] Shadowcaller: "But you wanted to know what he saw right?…"
[20:35] Happy: "If you want to tell me."
[20:36] Shadowcaller: "Well, its hard for me to tell about, since I was told about it, I do not know what parts he left out or missunderstood."
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "But I think you may make sense of the things he saw in there… do you know anything about mortal minds?"
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "Since you need them to live I mean."
[20:42] Happy: "Just tell me what you know. And I'll see if I can help."
[20:43] Shadowcaller: She tells Helena about everything Aegnor told her, just mentioning Cessie 4 vaugly, jsut saying tít was the "free" side of her, but none of her actions
[20:43] Happy: (Shs SANG!!! How disgraceful!)
[20:44] Shadowcaller: (Exactly >.>)
[20:46] Happy: "And you are having trouble with what he saw?"
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Well… are they really me?"
[20:50] Happy: "I've seen those parts of you before. I think I've seen all of them."
[20:51] Shadowcaller: "Even… the fourth version?"
[20:53] Happy: Helena smiles. "You wanted to change your appearance, just to make yourself more desirable to someone who already desired you."
[20:55] Shadowcaller: "…Well, it was your suggestion, I just wanted to see what he desired."
[20:55] Happy: "And part of you wanted what I suggested, right?"
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I guess so, I just wanted to try it."
[20:57] Happy: "And part of you was horrified at the thought, right?"
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "Well… yeah, I was both afraid… and a bit excited, but don't tell that to anyone."
[20:59] Happy: "And part of you was simply curious about how it would feel and how it all worked?"
[21:00] Shadowcaller: "Well, you are obviously leading me here, but yes, I feel curious."
[21:01] Happy: "You know more about the mind than I do, and of course you know more about yourself. Why do you doubt what he saw?"

[21:04] Happy: I don't know what the last thing said was
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "…maybe I just don't want to see some sides of me?"
[21:04] Murska: (you're leading me on or somesuch by SC)
[21:04] Murska: (for me)
[21:05] Shadowcaller: (Last thing I said.)
[21:05] Murska: (Well, I saw the chat to the part where you said something like previously mentioned)
[21:05] Murska: (then DCd)
[21:06] Happy: "Would you choose to eliminate one of those parts?"
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "Maybe… maybe not… No I don't think so actually."
[21:08] Shadowcaller: "She sang to him…"
[21:09] Happy: "You don't think that you would do that?"
[21:12] Shadowcaller: "Well I don't think so, but then again, I thought I would be a virgin all my life too…"
[21:15] Happy: "And do you want to eliminate the possibility that it might ever happen? That you might ever sing to him?"
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "How would she look like? The fourth version?"
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "And no, I want to decide that myself."
[21:17] Happy: "What did Aegnor say she looked like?"
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "He didn't mention it."
[21:18] Happy: "Why don't you ask him?"
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Can't you tell me? I guess she looked like the idealized version of me to him."
[21:20] Happy: "Do you want to know what his idealized version of you is?"
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "Um… are we somewhere private?"
[21:21] Happy: (I assume you're alone on the airship, right?)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (Yes, but she is afraid someone might come in.)
[21:22] Happy: "I can't control your physical surroundings, dear."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "Hm, I lock the door then."
[21:23] Happy: (You have to push something in front of it, like before)
[21:23] Shadowcaller: (She dose so, with magic)
[21:24] Happy: (Okay)
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "So… where was we?"
[21:26] Happy: "I won't change you this time. I'll just give you an illusion to look at."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: *were
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "Thats what I wanted."
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "Show me…"
[21:31] Happy: An illusory Cessie appears in front of her. She's wearing her old dress, that she was wearing when they were in the glade together. She's smiling, and her eyes were shining. There are no other changes.
[21:32] Shadowcaller: "Thats… anti-climatic." She says smiling
[21:33] Happy: "That's the picture he carries in his mind. The way you looked when you first told him how you felt about him."
[21:33] Happy: The illusion disappears.
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "I didn't expect that… or maybe I did, I still see him as he was in the glade too."
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "He was so gentle…"
[21:37] Happy: "Whatever he saw in your mind can't be his idealized version of you. It was *your* mind, after all."
[21:38] Murska: (Your version of his idealized version of you. :P)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: (Gah. I carry no such thought, hair is long enough.)
[21:39] Happy: (only a part of you)
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Thanks Helena, now I don't need to think about that anymore."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "Feels like a stone left my hearth…."
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "But… I still had one question, now that we are done with me."
[21:49] Happy: "Yes?"
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "I told you so much about myself, you know things about me no one else do, can you do the same thing for me now?"
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "How did you become a god?"
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[21:53] Happy: brb food
[21:54] Shadowcaller: (Okay)
[22:01] Happy: Helena looks away for a moment. "You really want to know? Are you hoping to become a god as well?" Her voice sounds sad.
[22:02] Shadowcaller: "Well, first I would fix you some worshippers of course." She grins
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "But, yes, I would like to know."
[22:05] Happy: Helena sighs heavily. The image in the orb disappears, and she appears sitting next to you in the cabin.
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "Good to met you in person."
[22:08] Happy: "It's an ugly story. Are you sure…"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I am sure."
[22:13] Happy: "It was a long time ago. Before the Trees. I lived in a palace, but I wasn't nobility. I was merely the daughter of a scribe."
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "Go on."
[22:16] Happy: "I was noticed for my beauty, of course. And I took advantage of it. I won't give you the details, but eventually, I became the King's mistress. He lavished me with jewels and fine clothing and lands. And I loved it. But I wanted more."
[22:18] Happy: "I hardly paid attention to affairs, but I knew there was a war. It had been going on since before I was born. I don't even know how it started. But both kingdoms were facing ruin, and looking for a way to make peace."
[22:21] Happy: "The king had a daughter who was about my age. When his only son died in battle, she became his heir. The rival king was unmarried. Of course everyone expected they should marry and unite the two kingdoms."
[22:25] Happy: "When negotiations were nearly concluded, the two kings met for the first time, and the betrothal was to be formalized. The king took me along with him. I was far more beautiful than his daughter, and Salin couldn't keep his eyes off of me. I let him think he was making all of the advances, but I played the maiden. I wouldn't let him have so much as a kiss unless he made me his queen."
[22:28] Happy: "And I won. The negotiations were broken off, and Salin took me away and married me. And thus the war went on. In fact, it was renewed with greater vigor, because of the humiliation. Perlea chose to believe that I had been kidnapped, and intended to rescue me. And so where I had once been admired by a few, I had become famous for my beauty in two kingdoms."
[22:29] Happy: "Men said they would die for a glimpse of me. Women wanted to learn my secrets. It was the height of my power."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "You started a war… and they admired you for it? Why would anyone do that?"
[22:35] Happy: "They never knew it was my doing, Cessie. The secret to controlling men is to always always let them believe they are making the decisions."
[22:36] Murska: (Even I knew that. :P)
[22:36] Happy: (Yes, but Cessie doesn't)
[22:37] Murska: (My plan to avoid that is gonna be to carry everywhere with me a random number generator, or just a dice. Then decide randomly. Try to control THAT. :P)
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "Thats the secret of controlling anyone, I don't think there are any gender specific ways of controlling another. And what you did was wrong anyway…"
[22:37] Murska: (die*)
[22:39] Happy: (Or just find a woman who doesn't want to control you)
[22:40] Shadowcaller: (So… should I kill my cat or not? I give it a 50 % chance…)
[22:41] Shadowcaller: (SHould I wear clothes today? Hmm… if I get more then 5. then yes.)
[22:42] Happy: "I know it was wrong. But the more attention I got, the more I wanted. I loved being admired."
[22:43] Murska: Happy sanoo:
(Or just find a woman who doesn't want to control you)

[22:43] Murska: (there are such things?)
[22:43] Murska: (O_o)
[22:44] Happy: (I don't control Mr HT. I take out all my manipulative urges in werewolf games >.>)
[22:44] Murska: (Heh.)
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "Well, how did that made you into god then?"
[22:48] Happy: (Any ideas for how that made her into a god? I hadn't gotten farther than universal admiration in her history)
[22:49] Shadowcaller: (Well, you could always go with "the wizards did it":P)
[22:49] Murska: (A god took interest of her, she became a servant, then she outdid her god in popularity?)
[22:49] Happy: (Yes, but that just moves the question back a step. how did *that* person become a god)
[22:50] Shadowcaller: (Well servants are basically mini-gods.)
[22:50] Murska: (By having gathered enough magic into himself in one way or another, I suppose.)
[22:50] Shadowcaller: (They are empowered the same way gods are.)
[22:51] Shadowcaller: There is a way…. Helena could be a old gods replacement
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Like Helios is
[22:52] Shadowcaller: GOds don't live forever, the longer they live, the more worshippers they need to keep themselves alive, there are exptions however, like Helena
[22:53] Shadowcaller: Anyway, once a god is near death, they can give a mortal all their energy, so they may become a new god
[22:53] Shadowcaller: A few gods do this since they are too proud
[22:54] Shadowcaller: Helios is a exception however, and maybe the one before Helena was too, it took notice of her when she gained all that fame
[22:55] Happy: if she gathered magic into herself, how would she do it? would she have to have been a wizard?
[22:55] Happy: or could wizards pour magic into her?
[22:56] Shadowcaller: They could, yes
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Not sure why… but we could always make something up
[22:57] Happy: okay, back to the story. I have the thread of an idea to follow.
[23:00] Happy: "Time passed. And one day I looked in the mirror and I saw the start of lines at the corners of my eyes. I was horrified, and wished them away. And when I looked again, they were gone. Of course, I thought that I had only imagined the lines, but eventually I realized that I had a latent ability to control my own appearance."
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "Just like that?"
[23:01] Happy: "I know, you're used to magic only being gained through long study. But before you ever studied, you had the spark within you, right?"
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "Yes, all wizards try to get so many childs as possible so one of them might carry the gift, or well, all wizard families."
[23:04] Happy: "I suppose I had the gift. I must have used it subconsciously all my life to enhance my own beauty. But once I knew I had it, I found teachers. Of course, as Queen, I couldn't go to a university. I was taught privately. And of course, all of the wizards who tutored me fell under my charms."
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "You could not help yourself of course?…"
[23:06] Happy: "I won't lie to you, Cessie."
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "Well, go on, its just against my principles."
[23:07] Happy: "I told you it was an ugly story."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "You should not use your own apperance to do anything."
[23:09] Murska: (Don't say that to Aegnor, the 'talented actor' type. :P)
[23:10] Happy: Helena's eyes flash with anger. "Why? How is it different than using your intelligence or your magic? I used what I had. I may be ashamed of what I used it for, but I refuse to be ashamed of my beauty!"
[23:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie that always have it easy to turn back in the face of anger dose so "Sorry, its just not what I have been taught, In Hestopia its seen as shameful to use your apperance to convince others…"
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "Well, not that I'm saying that everyone cared about that, but as a wizard, all problems should be solved by magic, using other tricks was seen as "weak"."
[23:19] Happy: "I was never a very talented wizard. I couldn't understand the theory, and the only tricks that I seemed to be good at were illusions and transforming."
[23:20] Happy: "But one of my tutors, who was in love with me, knew ways to increase my abilities by feeding his own to me."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "He gave you his own powers?"
[23:21] Happy: "Not all of his power, not at first."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "You must trully have great contol of him if he was willing to givve you that."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: *control
[23:23] Shadowcaller: *give
[23:23] Shadowcaller: *had
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "Is that what your gift was? To control others?"
[23:23] Happy: "It wasn't that way at first. He offered it freely. I didn't even know it was possible."
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "The power of beauty and lust… feels like mind controll."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "To me at least."
[23:27] Happy: "You know how it feels when you love someone. It feels like you're under a spell in some ways, doesn't it?"
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "I guess…"
[23:28] Happy: "But that doesn't mean anyone was controlling your mind."
[23:28] Shadowcaller: "Well, it feels like some parts of your mind aren't there at least… but its a good feeling."
[23:29] Happy: "Yes. It's a wonderful feeling. I've been in love so many times."
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "Many times? How do you mean?"
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (Hm, I might lower Cessies age just beacuse she is so naive:P)
[23:31] Happy: "No, you wouldn't approve. You are one of those who means to love only one person, forever."
[23:32] Shadowcaller: "Well, it feels like that at least."
[23:33] Happy: "I loved so much to be admired. I always found myself falling for those who paid the most attention to me."
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor have proved so many times that he is mine, I don't think I could love anyone else."
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "But we are all different I guess… I will try to not judge you again."
[23:38] Happy: "I didn't take all of his power. He gave it to me. More and more, all the time. I'm not sure where he got it. But he always seemed to have more."
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "Did you need this power?"
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "Why did he keep giving it to you? Did you want it?"
[23:41] Happy: "I used some of it, for my kingdom, and finally ended the war. But I never needed as much as he gave me. I'm not sure why he kept doing it. He said it was to prove how much he loved me, but I think now that he suspected what it might do, and was trying to make it happen."
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "He wanted you to become a god?"
[23:43] Happy: "I think he wanted to see if he could."
[23:44] Happy: "He was so intellectually curious, like you are. I think he may have been driven by that as much as by love."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Like a project?…"
[23:46] Happy: "The years passed, but my beauty never faded. I used my charm to extend the influence of the kingdom. I was known everywhere, and everyone loved me. But though I looked young, I wasn't immortal. Even elves die eventually. And I was approaching death. And I was afraid."
[23:51] Happy: "And that's when Reorn put out the call for wizards to come to the palace to empower the Queen. No one gave as much power as he did, but nearly every wizard in the kingdom came, and he taught them how to perform the transferral, and I grew more and more powerful."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "But you never used the power you had? I remember when I was empowered by a lot of magic… it didn't lead to god-hood thought."
[23:58] Happy: "Maybe it could have, if you'd held onto it instead of burning up an army. Or maybe it couldn't, since it was all given to you in a few hours time instead of slowly over years. Maybe Reorn did something more than he told me. I kept telling him I couldn't hold anymore, and he kept telling me that I could. And then, during a public festival, when most of the nobility were assembled… it was my ascension."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Wow… that must… how did it feel?"
[23:59] Happy: "So many eyes were on me, admiring me. And I felt it, like I always had, as something special. But then it became something more. It felt like their eyes were taking me to pieces."
[00:02] Happy: "The stories they told later, some of them said that I started to glow brighter and brighter until they were all dazzled, and when they regained their vision I was gone. Others said that I floated into the sky. They all agreed that they had witnessed a miracle, and I became the patron goddess of my kingdom."
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "Must have felt amazing, I can't imagine…"
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Just a lot of magic you say?"
[00:04] Happy: "No, not just the magic. I think it needed the people as well. I don't think Reorn could have done it to himself, even if he'd had as much magic as he'd given me."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Magic and people… the second part would be harder."
[00:05] Happy: "But if you didn't have people, who would worship you?"
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Yes, thats what I mean, I'm not very good with people."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "The magic might be possible… with enough time, but the people might be very hard for me."
[00:08] Happy: "I don't think you would like being a god. You'd have to have the attention of others."
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "I would live forever right?… Would I still be able to be in the real world?"
[00:10] Happy: "Only if you had enough power. I can only appear to you, for short periods of time. And I don't think I could if you lost the orb."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Thats sad… I would like to start your religion again somehow…"
[00:12] Happy: (where's Wolfie? T_T)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: (Tomorrow perhaps?)
[00:14] Happy: (I thought he'd be back tonight. At least long enough for chat, if not for roleplay :()
[00:16] Shadowcaller: (Well, he might have get delayed or something, its real life after all, unpredictable.)
[00:16] Happy: (I know. I'm just whining.)
[00:16] Murska: (well, we still have four hours)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (We do?:P)
[00:17] Murska: (Well yeah, eight is more like it)
[00:18] Happy: (I thought he said he'd be back around 11pm my time. Or did I totally mis-remember?)
[00:19] Shadowcaller: (Hmm, don't know, I can't remember that he gave us any time at least.)
[00:20] Happy: "You still do? Even after learning all this?"
[00:22] Shadowcaller: "Well, I belive we all can be better, just beacuse you did some morally questionably acts in the past don't mean your religion needs to die, you never really broke the law anyway."
[00:24] Shadowcaller: "What kind of religion was it anyway?"
[00:24] Shadowcaller: (I bet wolfy is just delayed or something, he will be online later…)
[00:24] Happy: Helena laughs. "It was a religion about me, of course."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Well, how was your followers? What traditions did you have?"
[00:26] Shadowcaller: (Its okay if I lower Cessies age right?)
[00:27] Happy: (better ask Cessie's lover)
[00:28] Shadowcaller: (She seems a bit naive for a 24 old.)
[00:28] Murska: (go ahead, it's your character. :P)
[00:38] Murska: (Hm. So?)
[00:38] Murska: (continue the conversation?)
[00:38] Shadowcaller: (Talking in other chat >.>)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (Deciding on the religion.)
[00:39] Murska: (no fair, I'm left out not only of the conversation but also the discussion of the conversatin
[00:39] Murska: (:P)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (We were going to base it on Aphrodite but…)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (intercourse with her priestesses was considered a method of worshiping Aphrodite)
[00:40] Murska: (heh)
[00:40] Murska: (Cessie's probably object somewhat.)
[00:40] Shadowcaller: (Yes, I would think so, you must have done some worshipping already…)
[00:40] Murska: (Can't you just leave that part out then?)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (Eh, we are making a new one.)
[00:41] Happy: (feel free to suggest ideas)
[00:42] Happy: (since we don't want everyone trying to have sex with Cessie to worship Helena :P)
[00:42] Shadowcaller: (….)
[00:42] Shadowcaller: (Don't even type the words.)
[00:44] Murska: (Well, at least she'd have one devoted worshipper.)
[00:44] Happy: XD
[00:44] Shadowcaller: (I don't even freedom would like that…)
[00:45] Happy: True. Freedom isn't Lust, after all.
[00:46] Murska: yeah
[00:46] Murska: anyway
[00:46] Murska: what have you come up with?
[00:46] Shadowcaller: We are going with improvment of apperance or something
[00:46] Shadowcaller: quite a vain religion
[00:48] Happy: popular among teenage girls and hollywood celebrities
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[00:48] Murska: Heh. Well, a god with the domain 'beauty'…
[00:49] Murska: All kinds of beauty, then? Natural beauty, beautifully constructed temples and such.
[00:49] Happy: she likes pretty things. flowers, paintings, jewellery
[00:49] Happy: any beautiful things
[00:49] Murska: yup
[00:50] Shadowcaller: So a god of architectur too then?
[00:51] Murska: Hmf. Nah, I don't think that'd fit.
[00:51] Happy: no, she doesn't know anything about it
[00:51] Happy: but she'd expect her temples to be beautiful
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Well, arts then?
[00:51] Murska: Architecture isn't about beautifulness as much as efficiency and usefulness anyway.
[00:51] Murska: Arts maybe?
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Paitings?
[00:51] Shadowcaller: I said that first:P
[00:52] Murska: yeah
[00:52] Murska: I'm saying that I'm not supporting nor against that idea
[00:52] Happy: She'd like those things. But she'd only like pretty paintings and sculptures. not the type that win Tate awards.
[00:52] Murska: Maybe she could gain Aegnor since music is an art. :P
[00:53] Shadowcaller: Zubera got music and artists actually
[00:53] Shadowcaller: But then again, the gofs share a lot of domains
[00:53] Shadowcaller: *gods
[00:54] Happy: I think art would be a form of worship for her. As long as it was beautiful
[00:54] Shadowcaller: Okay, lets go with that then
[00:54] Murska: No screamo death metal then? :P
[00:54] Shadowcaller: What about expression?
[00:55] Shadowcaller: She wants to express herself right?
[00:58] Happy: I think she mostly just wants to be admired
[00:58] Happy: and to have attention
[00:58] Shadowcaller: But I would guess its a very…. open religion
[00:59] Shadowcaller: Not exactly Ataris
[00:59] Happy: I don't think there are really 'sins' in her religion
[00:59] Happy: maybe defacing nice things
[01:00] Shadowcaller: WOuld be a peaceful religion at least
[01:00] Shadowcaller: Not destroy anything beautiful, such as a life
[01:01] Happy: it's okay to kill ugly people though
[01:01] Shadowcaller: Hm, it is?
[01:01] Shadowcaller: Now that is extremly vain
[01:01] Happy: heh. i don't know
[01:01] Happy: no, her kingdom would have had laws
[01:02] Shadowcaller: Otherwise it would not be the main stream religion after all
[01:03] Happy: she started out not being so much the god of beauty as the patron goddess of her country
[01:03] Happy: sort of like how everyone in england was expected to be anglican back in the days before freedom of religion
[01:04] Shadowcaller: So… everyone was expected to be obsessed by beauty?
[01:04] Happy: No, it was just that everyone worshipped her beauty
[01:04] Happy: and she protected the country
[01:04] Happy: but eventually her country was destroyed
[01:05] Shadowcaller: SHe must have taken many different forms
[01:05] Happy: and those who still worshipped her focused more on her beauty than anything else
[01:05] Happy: and she became one of many gods
[01:05] Happy: so she clung to what she was best at
[01:05] Shadowcaller: She is very old…
[01:06] Shadowcaller: Only one existing god older then her
[01:07] Happy: After she became a god, others saw it was possible
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Hm, but she was a elven god right?
[01:07] Happy: yes
[01:07] Shadowcaller: The ones existing are all human gods
[01:07] Happy: there were other elven gods though
[01:08] Shadowcaller: Except Helios, not sure what he is
[01:08] Shadowcaller: ¨Hm, okay
[01:09] Shadowcaller: Lets say rituals can be to create something beautifl then?
[01:09] Shadowcaller: *beautiful
[01:10] Happy: the elves made gods first. then the humans started making gods, and waging wars with them.
[01:10] Happy: against the elves
[01:10] Happy: and the elves said 'screw this' and went to the trees
[01:10] Happy: and decided to leave their gods behind
[01:10] Shadowcaller: ANd the spirits
[01:10] Shadowcaller: Spirits and trees are the same anyway, I guess
[01:11] Murska: hm.
[01:11] Murska: Well, the trees were created from elven forests so I guess the forest spirits of those come with them
[01:11] Murska: but of course there are other spirits.
[01:11] Shadowcaller: Kyou is the strongest place of the spirits in the world
[01:12] Shadowcaller: It was the site of the largest elven temple, devouted to the spirits
[01:13] Shadowcaller: Its the gate between out world, and theirs
[01:13] Shadowcaller: *our
[01:14] Shadowcaller: Anyway, should we continue?
[01:14] Murska: whenever you're ready.
[01:14] Happy: yeah
[01:15] Happy: Helena will tell Cessie these stories. But her memory isn't completely clear, and she doesn't have the strongest understanding of how it all works.
[01:15] Happy: which was another reason her worship faded
[01:15] Happy: The other gods who came along later, and understood more, were just stronger than her, and able to recruit her worshippers.
[01:16] Shadowcaller: (Hm, there should be a reason that she have been able to last so longe.)
[01:16] Shadowcaller: *long
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "So… how would I start up your religion again?"
[01:18] Happy: (maybe something about the way she was created? Or maybe Reorn became a god later, and his influenc ekeeps her alive?)
[01:18] Shadowcaller: (Maybe since she was the first? Something about that…)
[01:19] Murska: (or just a coincidence. :P)
[01:20] Shadowcaller: (Maybe the orb…)
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (Lets say its that whats keeping her alive.)
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (A extremly powerful artifact made by Reorn.)
[01:22] Happy: (perfect)
[01:23] Shadowcaller: (I guess the other gods would be *very* intrested in it. especially Helios.)
[01:23] Happy: (Link: http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j304/xliquidsnakex00/Fake%20Cards/DeathbyGuitarHero.jpg)http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j304/xliquidsnakex00/Fake%20Cards/DeathbyGuitarHero.jpg
[01:23] Happy: (does Helena know that's what's keeping her alive?)
[01:23] Shadowcaller: (You decide.)
[01:24] Shadowcaller: (Murska would win with that card:P)
[01:24] Happy: (yup)#
[01:24] Murska: (or just the 'pwned' card)
[01:25] Shadowcaller: .)(^^ indeed-
[01:25] Murska: (Okay… I'd say Welcome to the Jungle, Guitar. :P)
[01:25] Murska: (Let's see someone top my all but one note hit)
[01:25] Shadowcaller: (But we were supposed to continue right?)
[01:25] Happy: (so ask her something)
[01:26] Shadowcaller: I did
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "So… how would I start up your religion again?"
[01:27] Happy: "I'd need to know more people."
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "So I should start to ask people or something?"
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "WHat can you offer them?"
[01:28] Shadowcaller: (I guess that can be the goal for the next stop…)
[01:28] Happy: She smiles. "Only beauty. I'm not powerful enough to offer more."
[01:28] Shadowcaller: (You GM that happy:P)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "So, you change people into what they want?"
[01:31] Happy: "I can, just like I did to you."
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Well, can you really do that with all your worshippers?"
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Seems a bit… vain."
[01:37] Happy: "If you were a goddess, what would you offer your worshippers?"
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "Well… help? aiding them with every day trouble and such? Knowledge."
[01:39] Happy: "I don't really have any knowledge to give"
[01:40] Happy: "You're the clever one, Cessie."
[01:40] Shadowcaller: "I think Aegnor is more clever then me… in certain ways."
[01:41] Happy: "All I have to offer is beauty."
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you should try to widen your powers? Change a bit?"
[01:44] Murska: (fooooood)
[01:44] Murska: (while you're conversing)
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[01:46] Happy: "I'd need more power for that."
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "Okay, fine, we do it your way then, I can ask some people if they want to change, hope that dosn't reflect badly upon me…"
[01:47] Happy: "You don't have to ask them anything. Just let me meet them."
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "You just show up in front of them?"
[01:53] Happy: "I could if you were there, with the orb."
[01:53] Shadowcaller: "Hm, lets do that then, when we come to the next town."
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "How long was it since you…. talked with people? Most of them will be human you know."
[01:54] Happy: "I don't remember."
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "But you will be able to right? ANd our connection… dose that do anything special?"
[01:56] Happy: "You give me hope, Cessie."
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "Thats enough for me, will I be your priestess or something?"
[02:00] Happy: (epic lld post by Pirate Monk)
[02:00] Murska: (Hahaha. Happy just LOST the argument. :P)
[02:00] Happy: (indeed)
[02:01] Murska: (And FC is probably a duck.
[02:01] Murska: (He wouldn't post a duck strategy otherwise.)
[02:05] Murska: (Happy continues teh conversashun!)
[02:05] Happy: (Happy is easily distracted by sillies this time of the morning)
[02:05] Happy: "You're certainly beautiful enough to be a priestess of mine. But is it what you wish?"
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Thanks… but no, not until I know what it would mean at least."
[02:09] Happy: "I think… I need to go and rest now. Manifesting for this long isn't easy for me."
[02:09] Shadowcaller: "Do so then, we can speak more once we are in the next town, good night Helena."
[02:10] Happy: And Helena disappears. And now Aegnor and Cessie can talk or something :P
