[19:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still waiting for you to come out of the Sauna
[19:27] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/where-is-your-god-now.jpg)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/where-is-your-god-now.jpg
[19:27] Murska: Aegnor likes being in a sauna but decided that he'd rather stay with Cessie this time.
[19:28] Wolfbane: Since Wolfbane didn't go into the Sauna, (after all, he has fur) he wanders around the town.
[19:28] Shadowcaller: (alone?)
[19:28] Wolfbane: St(rike that)_
[19:28] Wolfbane: (Strike that)*
[19:28] Wolfbane: Wolfbane waits outside of the Sauna until everyone is done.
[19:29] Happy: Happy and Ai come out of the sauna. (what is the sauna dress code?)
[19:29] Shadowcaller: (You can go with anything.)
[19:29] Shadowcaller: (and that often means naked in this case.)
[19:29] Murska: (People kinda look at you funny if you go with full attire though. :P)
[19:30] Happy: (yeah, but usually naked saunas aren't mixed sex)
[19:30] Shadowcaller: (it is here.)
[19:31] Shadowcaller: (Its less "strict" around here.)
[19:31] Happy: (Well, the US is all puritan)
[19:31] Murska: (Finland, nobody really cares. :P)
[19:32] Murska: (There usually are saunas for people who do care, separately, in public areas, though.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (In sweden we care >.>, well maybe as not as much as the USA but…)
[19:32] Happy: (I'm sure Happy doesn't care. And nor does Ai.)
[19:32] Wolfbane: (Yeah, the USA cares)
[19:32] Murska: (Well where would Ai go then? :P)
[19:33] Happy: (*looks sadly at my empty soda can*)
[19:33] Shadowcaller: (indeed, but anyway, no one cares here in this fictional world.)
[19:33] Happy: (I'm not allowed to have caffeine after supper any more. It makes me sad. :'()
[19:34] Shadowcaller: (How come? It makes you more depressed?)
[19:36] Happy: (retraining sleep is what we learned in stress management class today. So I'm following the instructions. But I *love* Coke so much)
[19:37] Shadowcaller: (Well, i'm actually glad I never drinked it.)
[19:39] Happy: So eventually the party is reunited
[19:39] Shadowcaller: "Can.. you put on a bit more clothes please?"
[19:41] Happy: "Sure. Give me just a few minutes to get dressed."
[19:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks away from you while you get your clothes
[19:44] Wolfbane: (Was that in front of everyone?))
[19:44] Wolfbane: (If so, Wolfbane turns away politely)
[19:44] Shadowcaller: (I guess)
[19:45] Happy: (There wasn't a dressing area then?)
[19:45] Happy: (But if there wasn't, then yeah, I guess it was in front of evryone)
[19:45] Wolfbane: Wolfbane politely turns away until he is told otherwise.
[19:46] Murska: Aegnor aswell, even though he's seen Happy naked before anyway.
[19:47] Happy: "It feels good to be on solid ground," Happy says, now fully dressed.
[19:48] Wolfbane: "Yes. It is. At least for the moment."
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, I hope we don't stay here too long, this town is a bit strange…"
[19:50] Wolfbane: "It certainly is less… restricted."
[19:50] Happy: "I've never been this far from my birthplace before."
[19:51] Murska: 'Me neither.'
[19:51] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I guess we are quite far from home by now…"
[19:51] Wolfbane: Wolfbane doesn't mention home. "Yes, it seems we are a great distance from the Tree."
[19:53] Happy: "And the lady at the Inn said that the people here didn't speak our language. I guess they won't in Kyou either."
[19:53] Murska: 'I'm still at home, though. Isn't that where your family is?' Aegnor smiles at Cessie.
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "Well… I guess there is some truth in that." She ponders over this
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "But still, its not really home."
[19:55] Murska: 'For me, it is.'
[19:57] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shrugs. "For me, the world is my home I guess."
[19:57] Happy: Happy smiles at Aegnor's words, but looks away. "Is there anything you need before we're cooped up for another week on board ship, Cessie?"
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "I don't know… maybe we should look around? Just stay close to me please…"
[20:00] Wolfbane: "Well, I for one won't stray off." Wolfbane wonders if anyone catches the pun.
[20:00] Murska: (I should work towards getting a bass, anyway. :P)
[20:00] Murska: (and drums with something to transport them with)
[20:01] Wolfbane: (I have a good idea for an instrument for Wolfbane)
[20:01] Wolfbane: (A Penny Whistle. Wonderful little thing.)
[20:02] Shadowcaller: (Gah! You and your music.)
[20:02] Happy: Happy, not being terribly experienced in finding things in a town, follows the lead of the others
[20:03] Wolfbane: (I don't think they would carry complex and rare instruments in a town this small)
[20:04] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks a bit worried about the strange elements of this town and go behind Aegnor that she sees as the one that would be the best leader here
[20:05] Murska: Aegnor tries to familiarize himself with the town but isn't really searching for anything specific, just looking to see if anything'd catch his interest.
[20:07] Wolfbane: Wolfbane also looks around to see anything interesting.
[20:09] Happy: Your group draws stares. Your clothing style is different from the natives, and the voices around you are speaking in another language.
[20:10] Murska: We don't see anything interesting?
[20:10] Murska: (Noteworthily so, that is. :P)
[20:10] Shadowcaller: (Shhe, she is setting the mode.)
[20:10] Shadowcaller: *shh
[20:10] Murska: (Never! It is my right, NAY, my DUTY to complain about everything.)
[20:11] Happy: (anoints Murska GM for the night as his punishment ;))
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (Ha! That would be fun.)
[20:12] Happy: (okay, Murska, what do we see?)
[20:12] Murska: (Nothing. You're all blinded for no reason. :P)
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (Come one…)
[20:12] Happy: Okay, there's a street market
[20:12] Happy: Lots of booths
[20:13] Happy: Obviously set up to coincide with the arrival of the zeppelin
[20:13] Shadowcaller: (See, this is hard GM'ing, you need to make up all kind of intresting wares and stuff…)
[20:13] Murska: While walking, Aegnor subconsciously listens to the language, trying to distinguish individual words and such.
[20:14] Happy: A skinny teenage girl runs up to your group and curtseys to Aegnor. "You need translator, Sir? I speak good Western Common, Sir."
[20:15] Murska: 'I see that.' Aegnor turns to his friends. 'Do we need a translator?'
[20:15] Shadowcaller: "I guess we do…"
[20:15] Wolfbane: "It wouldn't hurt."
[20:16] Wolfbane: *waits for the girl to run screaming from him*
[20:16] Wolfbane: :P
[20:17] Happy: Many of the booths have exotic (to you) foods. There are colourful fabrics. Jewellery. Incense. Weapons. Cessie and Arik can sense magic emanating from different directions.
[20:17] Happy: The girl does not run screaming, but smiles broadly and names her price to accompany the party for the day.
[20:18] Happy: She doesn't seem at all uncomfortable with Wolfbane's appearance.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: Cessie carefully go to one of the booths with magic wares, looking around to see anything intresting
[20:19] Wolfbane: (Do we hire her?)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (I guess we do, Aegnor is doing the talking after all^^)
[20:19] Murska: (depends on if we got the money)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (Arik provides:P)
[20:20] Murska: (sure, then)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: Arik gives the girl a gold coin absentmindly
[20:20] Wolfbane: (probably much more than she asked)
[20:22] Wolfbane: (Or not)
[20:23] Happy: She's quite delighted, and introduces herself as Simone.
[20:23] Wolfbane: (Simone, as in Nina?)
[20:23] Murska: (heh…)
[20:23] Happy: (Who's Nina?)
[20:23] Wolfbane: (Nina Simone, wonderful singer)
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (Never heard of.)
[20:24] Happy: (I glanced over at my bookcase, saw an author named Simon, and added an e to get a girl's name)
[20:25] Happy: She accompanies Cessie to the magic booth. The items for sale are mostly the type of small trinkets you sell to the populace for casting weak charms.
[20:25] Murska: (My real name is 'Simo'.)
[20:25] Wolfbane: (I'm Jeremy, but I prefer Wolfbane honestly)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (We know, or at least I know.)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (I never tell you my name muhaha!)
[20:26] Happy: (Murska knows my real surname now. Really, I should be the guitar obsessed one of the group)
[20:26] Murska: (Gustav?)
[20:26] Shadowcaller: (…Curse you.)
[20:26] Shadowcaller: <.<
[20:26] Shadowcaller: >.>
[20:26] Murska: (Well, you can be if you wish, I'm really mostly for the bass, drums and vocals.)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (Cessie asks the girl if he can ask the shop keeper what the trinkets do
[20:27] Happy: (you mean you wouldn't trade it to have Jimi's talent?)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: *she
[20:27] Murska: (Well of course I would. But not for his surname. :P)
[20:27] Wolfbane: (Oh, Murska, this is a Penny whistle, the kind of music suits Wolfbane
[20:27] Wolfbane: (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDTnegJvB3I&feature=related)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDTnegJvB3I&feature=related)
[20:29] Wolfbane: *has derailed the RP train*
[20:29] Happy: Cessie recognizes a lot of the trinkets before she asks. Some for favourable winds (generally not powerful enough to affect a zeppelin), some for hangover cures (would probably also work on airsickness), love charms (really just magic based pheremones) and the like.
[20:30] Shadowcaller: Cessie is more intrested in more powerful trinkets and asks the girl if she know any shop that sell such things
[20:35] Happy: "Yes, Miss. I lead you to Mistress Yani, Miss." At her words, the man in this booth begins arguing with Simone in their language. She argues back at him and makes a gesture at him which you can guess by context is probably meant to be to be rude, before she leads you away, the man still shouting after her.
[20:35] Shadowcaller: "Well, that was intresting…" Cessie says, mostly to Aegnor
[20:36] Shadowcaller: She follows Simone and assumes the others do the same
[20:36] Wolfbane: Wolfbane does so.
[20:36] Murska: Aegnor listens to the language more now, since he can hear the girl translate the general meaning of the phrases.
[20:37] Happy: They do. Happy looks around quietly.
[20:37] Shadowcaller: (Oh come one, don't tell me you learn a language in a day:P)
[20:37] Murska: (I don't, but I'm trying to. :P)
[20:37] Shadowcaller: (Marty stu warning >.>)
[20:38] Happy: (:P)
[20:39] Murska: (Mainly he's just trying to learn the 'way' these people speak, the way their language sounds like.)
[20:39] Happy: After ten minutes or so, Aegnor finds he still doesn't know the language.
[20:39] Murska: Really? O_o
[20:39] Murska: :P
[20:40] Happy: Simone leads the party away from the street market, through some alleys, and into an older part of town.
[20:41] Happy: Aegnor and Arik can probably sense that this isn't the type of place that one would normally expect tourists to be led.
[20:41] Happy: (Cessie's too naive to pick up on it, and Happy and Wolfbane too inexperienced with town life)
[20:42] Murska: 'Where are we going?'
[20:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, I like this better then the other quarters at least, less crowds."
[20:43] Happy: "To Mistress Yani, Sir. She have powerful magic."
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "Okay… sounds intresting."
[20:48] Happy: There is a rickety staircase leading up the side of a building which Simone runs up nimbly to knock on a door on the third floor. There's another rapid fire exchange in the local language, before she calls down to you. "Mistress Yani say walk up."
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "How eccentric, well this was what i was looking for…"
[20:50] Wolfbane: (Can the staircase take Wolfbane's wieght?)
[20:50] Wolfbane: (He is pretty big)
[20:51] Happy: Wolfbane looks at the staircase, and can't be sure by looking whether it will support him.
[20:51] Murska: Aegnor readies himself, just in case.
[20:52] Wolfbane: Wolfbane decides to play it safe. "I think I'll wait out here."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie take a few steps up, like she is testing the stability of the stairs
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "Are you coming? I don't want to get up there alone."
[20:53] Happy: The steps support Cessie easily.
[20:53] Murska: Aegnor follows her.
[20:53] Happy: Arik is right behind them, as is Ai. Happy says she'll remain behind with Wolfbane.
[20:55] Shadowcaller: Cessie enters the room at the top of the stairs first then
[20:55] Happy: Most of the party has to duck to enter the low doorway. Cessie and Arik recognize a charm on the door to prevent those who enter from hostile actions.
[20:57] Happy: A young looking woman with dark hair and skin is sitting inside, wearing a sari that leaves one elegant shoulder exposed.
[20:58] Happy: "Please, tell the Wolfen and the Huntress to enter as well. The stairs will hold," she says, in heavily accented Western Common.
[20:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie dose so
[20:59] Wolfbane: Wolfbane raises an eyebrow, but walks up the stairs, being careful even with the warning.
[21:00] Happy: Happy, also careful, waits until Wolfbane is at the landing before she goes, so that if he falls, someone will be at hand to help him. But the stairs hold, and soon everyone is in the now very crowded room.
[21:01] Shadowcaller: Cessie tries to greet to woman with a elegant bow as she is unsure how to show her respect
[21:03] Happy: Yani speaks first to Simone. "Sit here next to me child," she says to her, in Common rather than the local language. Simone sits down, and Yani places her hand on the girl's head. Simone is instantly asleep.
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "What… was that really nessecary?"
[21:05] Happy: "Let me ask you, why didn't she take you to one of the wizards in the marketplace?" She looks at each of you in turn, but her eyes linger longest on Cessie and Arik.
[21:06] Shadowcaller: Arik remains alof of the woman, he lets Cessie speak
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "Well, I was looking for something better really, something intresting."
[21:07] Happy: Yani shakes her head. "No, that would not have been enough. There are charlatans in the market who pay her to lead tourists to them."
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "Well, we payied good.. maybe thats why?"
[21:09] Murska: 'Or maybe you, for some reason, got her to lead us to you.'
[21:09] Shadowcaller: *payed
[21:10] Wolfbane: "Or because we aren't just simple tourists. We /do/ stand out."
[21:10] Shadowcaller: Arik appears unintrested of the conversation, looking around the room instead at the woman
[21:12] Happy: "Whatever your reasons for seeking me out, or your method of finding me, it seemed your business would be best discussed without certain ears to hear. She is really quite a smart girl, and would remember every word."
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "Well, what is this place then? What do you do here?"
[21:16] Happy: "This is my home. Normally it is where I enjoy the privacy of my own studies. But today I find on my doorstep two wizards, an elf, and the chosen of three separate gods. Not the kind of company I usually get."
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "Wait, how many choosen did you say?"
[21:17] Wolfbane: Wolfbane suddenly puts it together. The Marking, it had to be.
[21:18] Wolfbane: He has to ask. "I'm the third one, aren't I?"
[21:18] Murska: Aegnor glances at Wolfbane.
[21:19] Wolfbane: Wolfbane isn't wearing his cloak since it is too hot, so the marking shows clearly.
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Your a choosen wolfbane? I thought you said wolfen didn't have gods?"
[21:20] Wolfbane: "We don't. But I don't see how that would effect things."
[21:21] Happy: Yani looks at Happy. "Did you know you were travelling with a chosen of the Facestealer?"
[21:21] Murska: 'Right…'
[21:22] Happy: "I knew she had asked for his help. I didn't know he was a chosen," Happy answers.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Arik reacts to this words, looking at the old woman, he he still donsn't say anything
[21:22] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shakes his head. "/I/ didn't know it until now. I don't see how they could."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: *dosn't
[21:23] Murska: 'Okay, now that we all know that, let's get on with whatever we're doing here?'
[21:24] Happy: "It's painted on your face, Wolfen." (And though she is quite old, she looks rather young. Arik might have seen the truth though)
[21:24] Happy: "What are you doing here?" she asks. "You came to me. What are you seeking?"
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "…we came for something to buy, we seems to have recived other things however."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "What do you sell here Yani?"
[21:28] Happy: "I don't typically sell things," she says irritably. "This is my home. Why did you tell the girl you were looking for a powerful wizard?"
[21:30] Shadowcaller: "I told her I was looking for more powerful trinkets to buy, not to be guided to your home… with all respect."
[21:31] Happy: "And what sort of trinkets are you looking for?"
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure, what do you have?"
[21:33] Happy: "I don't intend to give you an inventory of my home," she answers, and turns to Wolfbane. "But you. Now you are interesting. How were you Chosen? That is a story I would dearly love to hear."
[21:35] Wolfbane: Wolfbane isn't surprised she asked, so he answers. "I promised that I would help a girl in a dream. She said that if I helped her, she would see to it that my brother's soul would find rest."
[21:36] Murska: (Considering I'm probably the first elf to visit the Lower Plane in some two hundred years, I don't think that many people would even realize I'm an elf, btw.)
[21:36] Murska: (Just noting.)
[21:36] Happy: (Then it's strange that she realized it, isn't it?)
[21:37] Wolfbane: ((She instanly knew that three of us were chosen by gods. I think she knows."
[21:37] Wolfbane: )
[21:37] Murska: (Not really, she's a wizard.)
[21:37] Shadowcaller: (Well, she must be a seer.)
[21:38] Wolfbane: (A wizard did it!)
[21:38] Wolfbane: :P
[21:39] Happy: "And do you believe she will keep her word?" she asks.
[21:39] Wolfbane: "Honestly? Now that I know that she "Chose" me, I think so."
[21:42] Happy: "Perhaps. Perhaps. But take care. And you," she says, turning to Ai. "Strange that Nega would permit you to travel with such a one."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "She haven't hindered me yet, I live only to do her wish after all."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "May I… Okay… to be more specific, I want a trinket that can cure broken magic, something that let you enter your own mind."

[21:47] Shadowcaller: She looks at wolfbane apologizing that she interrupted him
[21:50] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shakes his head, glad for the interruption.
[21:51] Happy: "That would be something very powerful. If I even had such a thing, what could you offer me in return?"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "Whatever you wish, I need this thing desperatly."
[21:53] Shadowcaller: "Just name it, and we can make a deal."
[21:56] Happy: "Poor negotiating technique, wouldn't you say?" Yani says, this time addressing Aegnor. "You are never supposed to let the other party know you are desparate."
[21:56] Shadowcaller: "I'm only telling the truth."
[21:56] Murska: 'She does that a bit too much.'
[21:57] Wolfbane: "Cessie. Remember what I had just found out? Do you want something like that to happen to you?"
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "What are you talking about? Sorry but, I don't really see the connection between our situations."
[22:00] Wolfbane: "I said deal before I knew what it was. That is how they are the same. I had no idea that I would be "Chosen" because of it."
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "Well… you would pay any prize would you not?"
[22:03] Murska: 'It's not like something like what you want would be unique, Cessie. I won't let you agree to something ridiculous for it.'
[22:04] Shadowcaller: "Of course not, I'm just hearing her offer out."
[22:04] Wolfbane: "Yes, I suppose I would most of the time. There are things I would never pay. But, do as you wish."
[22:04] Wolfbane: are still*
[22:05] Happy: "Nor would it be safe," Yani says. "Entering your own mind when your magic isn't reliable could cause you far worse injury."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "Well, such a artifact would make it safe right?"
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "I know what you are saying WolfBane but I know what I will and will not do."
[22:07] Happy: "No, it only makes it possible. Nothing can make it safe, unless your magic was whole to start with."
[22:08] Murska: 'There's got to be a way.'
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I always assumed it was the journey there that was dangerous."
[22:10] Happy: "Do you know why there are so few mind wizards?"
[22:10] Murska: 'So, do you know of a way to help her without her getting into danger?'
[22:11] Murska: (I should be getting to sleep soon.)
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "No, I do not."
[22:12] Murska: (I can be up all night tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, though. Or at least as long as I can stay awake.)
[22:12] Shadowcaller: (Wait, is it not a day of for you today?)
[22:12] Murska: (Yup, but we'll be having guests.)
[22:12] Shadowcaller: (ahh)
[22:13] Happy: "Because they tend to die trying to do things that they assumed were safe."
[22:14] Murska: 'Yes, we get it, it's dangerous to mess with minds.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "But I heard it been done before, surely it must be a way, otherwise…"
[22:15] Happy: "I'm trying to explain this so you know why I can't just sell you a bauble and send you on your way."
[22:15] Murska: 'Because it's dangerous. Now that we all understand it, can you tell me whether you know of a way or not?'
[22:18] Happy: "Yes, there is a way. She can't fix herself, but someone else could enter her mind to try and heal it."
[22:18] Murska: 'Would it be dangerous to her?'
[22:19] Happy: "To her, to the person casting the spell, and to the person who went in."
[22:21] Murska: 'Should've known…'
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Who is in the most danger?"
[22:25] Wolfbane: (brb, I am getting some food.)
[22:25] Shadowcaller: (Okay)
[22:32] Happy: "It depends on the skill of the spellcaster." She says, glances at Arik with a sly smile.
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "Hm, did you speak to me?" He suddenly looks up
[22:35] Happy: "You are a wizard, are you not?"
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "Well, yes, I am, how did you guess?"
[22:36] Murska: Aegnor rolls his eyes.
[22:40] Happy: "Someone would need to cast the spell, of course."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "Ahh, yes of course." He smiles knowingly at her
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "Now he is doing that again…" Cessie whispers to Aegnor.
[22:41] Wolfbane: (back, with chinese)
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Sometimes its like he is somewhere else, somewhere he knows more then us…/
[22:43] Murska: 'Or less.' Aegnor raises his voice again. 'Well, I volunteer for an expedition inside Cessie's mind if there isn't a safer way for her.'
[22:44] Wolfbane: "I don't think I could go if I wanted to"
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "…what? Aegnor, you can't do that, we just need to find another safer way."
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "Why not?" Cessie asks curiously
[22:46] Wolfbane: "I'm not magical in any way that I know of, and I am extremely different than any of you. My mind may not work the same way." He turns to the owner of the house. "Am I right?"
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "But Aegnors mind must also be very different from mine…"
[22:48] Wolfbane: "He is closer than I am, I think. Plus, you two know each other very well."
[22:49] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Cessie, could I speak you outside for a moment?"
[22:49] Shadowcaller: *with
[22:49] Wolfbane: *hopes he didn't get her in trouble*
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I was speaking to wolfbane… why?"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Just follow me…"
[22:51] Shadowcaller: After a few moments only Arik returns
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "Now, where was we?"
[22:51] Wolfbane: Wolfbane raises an eyebrow.
[22:51] Wolfbane: (Or, as close as he can anyways)
[22:52] Murska: 'Where is Cessie?'
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "She is staying outside for the moment, don't worry Aegnor, I won't let anything happend to her."
[22:52] Murska: Aegnor looks at him again, with an unreadable expression. 'Fine.'
[22:53] Happy: Simone suddenly wakes up. "This really isn't a safe neighborhood for a young woman to be alone," Yani says. "Simone, go wait outside with the young woman. Make sure no one bothers her."
[22:54] Shadowcaller: He smiles at Yani
[22:55] Shadowcaller: (See the things going in the background?)
[22:56] Wolfbane: (Curse GMs and their Omnipotent ways. :P)
[22:56] Wolfbane: (What am I thinking now?)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (Eh, happy and I have background disscussions.)
[22:57] Shadowcaller: (Even in character.)
[22:58] Happy: "The price is this: I need the pelt of the <insert dangerous mythical creature here to be identified by the GM when she gets around to it>. If you can bring that to me, I will give you the artifact."
[22:59] Murska: Aegnor sighs.
[22:59] Murska: 'Why does everything always result in us having to go kill something?'
[23:00] Wolfbane: "Because that is our kind of luck?"
[23:01] Murska: 'Bad luck, that is?'
[23:02] Wolfbane: "No, just the kind that likes to toy with us."
[23:02] Happy: "Good luck, I should say. I like problems that I have the skills to solve," Happy says.
[23:03] Wolfbane: Wolfbane grins. "True. This should be a little fun."
[23:04] Murska: 'Hm. I'd be all for killing some <insert dangerous mythical creature here to be identified by the GM when she gets around to it> but yeah, why does everything have to be so complicated all the time.'
[23:05] Wolfbane: "This actually is pretty simple. We go kill the thing and bring back the pelt. How tough could it be?"(famous last words)
[23:06] Murska: 'The whole situation, really… We had a weird dream, got pulled into some sort of a god-revival-attempt right after saving a whole Tree, then left on an airship for a village on the other side of the world, and now we're looking to kill something like that to get an item with which we can perform a spell which allows us to fix Cessie's mind.'
[23:07] Wolfbane: "Well, anything is complicated if you say it like that."
[23:08] Murska: 'Not really. I mean, my life before was 'wander aimlessly'.'
[23:08] Murska: 'Sounds much less complicated.'
[23:11] Happy: Yani: "Then we have a deal?"
[23:12] Murska: 'Yeah, fine.'
[23:12] Murska: 'Does anyone have any idea where to find such a creature?'
[23:12] Murska: 'Or do we have to go on another quest to find someone who does?'
[23:13] Happy: "They live in the jungles here. I'm sure a Wolfen and a Huntress can find one."
[23:13] Wolfbane: Wolfbane takes the hint. "I suppose we should hurry and get it then. We only have until tomorrow."
[23:14] Murska: (What about we do that tomorrow?)
[23:14] Murska: (I should've gone to sleep two hours ago.)
[23:14] Happy: "Tomorrow? You think that highly of your hunting skills?"
[23:14] Shadowcaller: (Well, you aren't needed for the next part:P)
[23:14] Happy: (sure, you can go. we'll just roleplay)
[23:14] Murska: 'Well if only we were still on the tree…'
[23:15] Murska: ('kay, well, I'll stay while I can. :P)
[23:15] Wolfbane: "I mean that our airship leaves tomorrow, doesn't it?"
[23:17] Wolfbane: (Doesn't it?)
[23:17] Happy: (it does)
[23:17] Wolfbane: (Whew, wanted to make sure)
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Well, yes but I'm sure Yari can give some hints to where this beast lives? Can't you?"
[23:22] Happy: "I suppose it depends on whether your airship journey is more important to you than your friend's ailment. Of course I'll give you all the help I can. It's in my interests that you succeed, after all."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "Well, I might be able to convince the Zeppelin captain that we need another day or two…"
[23:23] Murska: 'I'm staying to help Cessie, you can go ahead to Kyou if you have to.'
[23:23] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shakes his head. "I'm staying and helping."
[23:24] Wolfbane: He looks at Yani. "Do you have anything by which I can track it with? By scent?"
[23:27] Happy: "I have a small clump of its fur that was found in the rosenberry bushes where it likes to feed," Yani says. She gives it to Wolfbane.
[23:29] Wolfbane: Wolfbane takes it. He looks at it for a moment then sniffs at it. Memorizing the scent, he hands it back. "That should help."
[23:29] Happy: And she tells them some more details about it, which again the GM will flesh out later :P
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (Lets say its a dragon.)
[23:30] Murska: (with fur? :P)
[23:30] Wolfbane: (Depends on the myth)
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (Sure, can be such a dragon.)
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (A lesser type of furry dragon.)
[23:30] Wolfbane: (Hopefully one that isn't too big)
[23:31] Happy: (aww.. i was trying to find some sort of awesome japanese myth creature)
[23:31] Shadowcaller: (Ohh, I know a lot of those.)
[23:31] Wolfbane: (happy, remember the story of the Ap, I told you?)
[23:31] Wolfbane: (Perfect inviorment)
[23:31] Wolfbane: enviorment*
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (Well, its going to be Happy and Wolfbane that is hunting it.)
[23:34] Shadowcaller: (Isn't that right Yani?)
[23:34] Wolfbane: (The Ap/Aph is the Cambodian equivalent of a vampire. It is a floating head with dreadlocks made out of organs.)
[23:34] Murska: (Sounds charming.)
[23:35] Shadowcaller: (Eh, you mean the demons who live as normal humans then when night comes, their head flies off?)
[23:35] Shadowcaller: (And is trying to eat humans?)
[23:35] Wolfbane: (It may have been. I has been forever since I have heard of it)
[23:36] Wolfbane: (But it is still called the Cambodian Vampire)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Then we got the demon who can control her hair and have a mouth at the top of her head.)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Feeding it with the hair as tentacles.)
[23:37] Murska: Aegnor suddenly stops, with a look of realization on his face.
[23:37] Murska: 'Uh…'
[23:37] Wolfbane: "Aegnor?"
[23:37] Murska: 'Does anyone happen to remember why exactly we went to Caster's tower in the first place?'
[23:38] Wolfbane: "I wouldn't know."
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (Only Happy that could remember that:P))
[23:38] Happy: Happy looks confused, "We were looking for a wizard…"
[23:39] Happy: (She also wasn't there for most of the converation with Noel)
[23:40] Murska: '…yeah, remember why? (Does Happy know about it then?)
[23:40] Happy: (I imagine she was told later)
[23:40] Happy: "A curse?"
[23:41] Murska: 'Which, incidentally, never got removed after all.'
[23:41] Wolfbane: "What curse?"
[23:41] Shadowcaller: "Well, then we must remove it before you go into her head."
[23:42] Happy: "It's my fault. I got so wrapped up in the war," Happy says.
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "What kind of curse are we talking about here?"
[23:42] Shadowcaller: Arik ignores Happy
[23:43] Murska: 'More of my fault. I'm the one cursed, I think I'm supposed to remember that kind of stuff.' Aegnor ignored Arik.
[23:43] Happy: Yani: "There's something draining his life energy."
[23:43] Happy: Happy: "I think Cessie wants to hear this." She crosses to the door.
[23:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie is waiting outside with Simone
[23:45] Happy: "Cessie, I think you'd better come back inside."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: She looks up "But I thought… okay sure."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: She goes up the stairs again
[23:47] Murska: Cessie enters. Aegnor still hasn't forgotten his sense of drama. 'Hey Cessie, would you happen to remember why exactly we went to Caster's tower in the first place?'
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, there was that… thing, I remember getting my memories back but then there was something Noel could not help us with."
[23:49] Murska: '…indeed. And he pointed us to Caster who would be able to help us… but, incidentally, we never happened to get around to actually telling him to.'
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "There was some kind of curse right? I remeber both you and Happy having one…"
[23:51] Wolfbane: "Both?"
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Well, there was some demon or whatnot that put a curse on us."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Each one of us got a different curse."
[23:52] Murska: 'Except that mine was different, since I never met that demon. And apparently we forgot to ever get that removed.'
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Where did you get your curse anyway? I can't remember that part."
[23:53] Murska: 'I haven't got the faintest idea.'
[23:54] Murska: 'Yani here mentioned something about it draining my energy… which would explain certain things.'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Well, I haven't noticed anyting unusal."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: *anything
[23:54] Shadowcaller: *unusual
[23:55] Wolfbane: (*leaves the obvious oneliner alone*)
[23:55] Happy: "Something is draining his life energy. In essence, feeding on his soul."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "But.. thats horrible!"
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "He need to be cured, NOW!"
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "You can cure him right?"
[23:57] Murska: 'It can't be that strong, after all, it hasn't affected me enough for me to even notice it.'
[23:59] Happy: Happy: "Aegnor, don't joke about something like this. Cessie's right, this is important."
[00:00] Murska: 'It hasn't killed me yet, it can wait. We'll get it fixed once we have time.'
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "But a curse could have greatly increased effect if you are in someone else mind."
[00:02] Wolfbane: "What better time is there than this? If she is willing to help, we should do it now."
[00:02] Murska: 'Well, if it can be removed, then sure, it's not like I want to be cursed…'
[00:02] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Yes, go now, I will put a scrying mark upon you…"
[00:03] Wolfbane: (To me and Happy?)
[00:04] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[00:05] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods and looks at Happy. "Are you ready to go?"
[00:05] Happy: "Of course."
[00:05] Wolfbane: (Assuming he knows the direction)
[00:05] Happy: (Yeah, she's given you details)
[00:05] Shadowcaller: Arik casts some spells upon Happy and Wolfbane
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "There you go, now you are ready."
[00:06] Happy: "What do these do?" Happy asks.
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Well, I can see where you are, if you need any help I can travle to your location really fast."
[00:06] Shadowcaller: *travel
[00:07] Wolfbane: "Thanks. I hope we won't need it." Wolfbane then leaves the room and waits for Happy before moving on.
[00:08] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks worried after them "They will be okay right?"
[00:09] Murska: Aegnor glances sharply at Arik.
[00:09] Murska: If someone would have been studying his eyes at that moment, he's have noticed a flash of anger before he hid it again.
[00:10] Happy: "Cessie, you are welcome to stay with Aegnor. But I don't believe there's room in my small abode for your brother and the Servant."
[00:11] Murska: 'Thank you.'
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Yes, thank you very much."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie enters thier room
[00:15] Shadowcaller: *their
[00:15] Happy: And Ai and Arik leave?
[00:16] Shadowcaller: They do
[00:16] Happy: then we can stop here for the night. Wolfbane and Happy hunting, Cessie and Aegnor at Yani's house, and Ai and Arik off doing whatever. Simone follows the latter two.
[00:17] Murska: 'kay.
[00:17] Murska: (Yay for a lot of interesting inter-party conflicts.)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (indeed.)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (What did she tell you at the start?)
[00:19] Happy: (it'll all go up on the wiki)
[00:19] Shadowcaller: (Ahh.)
[00:20] Shadowcaller: Added a image of Arik, in lich form that is
[00:20] Murska: (Enemies page, right? :P)
[00:20] Shadowcaller: (nope, people and places.)
[00:20] Shadowcaller: (Its fun to play the villian thought:P)
[00:21] Murska: (Yup. ;))
[00:21] Murska: (Join the Dark Side)
[00:23] Happy: you can go to bed now, Murska
[00:24] Murska: I should…
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[00:24] Wolfbane: All three of you should, but I doubt Happy will
[00:24] Wolfbane: :P
[00:24] Happy: I'm not allowed to until I get sleepy
[00:25] Wolfbane: ah
[00:25] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane/Happy conversation?
[00:26] Happy: okay, the two telepathic conversations are up
[00:26] Happy: you guys can see what the other one was talking about now
[00:27] Shadowcaller: Yeah

[00:33] Shadowcaller: Hm, did you read those?
[00:33] Wolfbane: Gee, a psychic conversation without Wolfie.
[00:33] Murska: I read the other telepathic conversation and now I'm off for tonight. Cya
[00:33] Wolfbane: :P
[00:33] Happy: gnight
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Good Night
[00:33] Wolfbane: Have a good night
[00:34] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[00:34] Happy: bah. Wizards and their magic. Who needs them :P
[00:34] Wolfbane: Not I!
[00:34] Happy: Not Happy!
[00:35] Wolfbane: *highfives*
[00:35] Shadowcaller: Bah, if she had not dispelled that geas…
[00:36] Happy: if she hadn't? then what?
[00:36] Shadowcaller: Well, you would have been more motivated:P
[00:36] Happy: Happy's already motivated enough
[00:36] Wolfbane: I'd say they were motivated enough
[00:36] Shadowcaller: And unable to do much else then killing that thing
[00:37] Wolfbane: >.>
[00:37] Shadowcaller: He didn't trust you were
[00:37] Happy: she wouldn't retreat unless it was retreat or die
[00:37] Wolfbane: Same with Wolfbane
[00:37] Happy: so the geas wouldn't have helped anyone
[00:37] Happy: although Yani probably wouldn't have dispelled it if Arik hadn't pissed her off so badly
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Since he threatened to kill her?
[00:38] Happy: And gave her orders. And called her names.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Oh, that
[00:38] Happy: He can't kill her anyway.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: He can't?
[00:38] Happy: check out her entry on the People page
[00:39] Shadowcaller: A dragon? o.O
[00:39] Happy: no
[00:39] Shadowcaller: I thought Yueri were dragons..
[00:39] Happy: a Yūrei is a ghost
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Oh
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Hm, he is a necromancer thought, he could enslave her:S
[00:40] Happy: she's a lot older than him
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Ghosts often are…
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Why didn't she speak with Cessie? (I know, that would be complicated but still.)
[00:42] Happy: mostly because of GM limit on chats, but IC we'll say it's because of her mind injury
[00:42] Shadowcaller: (okay.)
[00:44] Happy: i suppose he could enslave her, but she's bound to that place. So he couldn't force her to leave it
[00:44] Happy: and once he left, she'd be free again.
[00:44] Shadowcaller: Well, I doubt he would go that clearly out
[00:44] Shadowcaller: He knows Cessie would not accept that
[00:45] Happy: yeah
[00:45] Shadowcaller: Unless he can make Yani looks like the bad person here…
[00:46] Happy: Which is why she started talking to Aegnor
[00:46] Shadowcaller: I imagined so, I had plans for wolfen in the woods…
[00:46] Wolfbane: >.>
[00:47] Wolfbane: Wolfen to fight? Or a tribe?
[00:47] Shadowcaller: I'm not sure
[00:47] Shadowcaller: Its better if we leave that open right?
[00:47] Wolfbane: Well, they would likely try to kill Wolfbane if they learned his name.
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Hm, yeah
[00:48] Wolfbane: Still I'd leave it open, do you need me to leave chat for you two to discuss plot?
[00:49] Shadowcaller: No, we are going to leave that wide open
[00:49] Shadowcaller: So many conversations we need to have…
[00:54] Happy: yeah, plot is open. if wolfbane has anything to say to happy as they head out, go ahead, but we won't actually have any encounters until tomorrow
[00:55] Wolfbane: He has one question
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (now would be the time to fix the whole Zubera/kuoi thing >.>)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: *Kuori
[00:55] Happy: fix it?
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (Well, talk it out or whatever.)
