Apr 9 Pt 1

[14:58] Shadowcaller: Hello…
[14:59] Happy: so when we last saw our fearless hunters, they were hugging in the jungle
[14:59] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[15:00] Shadowcaller: (Not sure if wolfy is here right now thought, he didn't respond to me a few minutes ago.)
[15:00] Wolfbane: I am, sorry
[15:00] Shadowcaller: You got school, don't say your sorry:P
[15:01] Wolfbane: I have a class in 45 minutes, but that is it
[15:01] Shadowcaller: I need to get off all this drama I have after my outburst in insanowar 3…
[15:01] Shadowcaller: Your last class?
[15:02] Wolfbane: No, but the other one isn't worth going to, is optional today, and I'd rather spend it with you guys
[15:03] Shadowcaller: Okay, lets just start a little small sicne I need to take a walk with the dog in 40 minutes
[15:03] Shadowcaller: *45
[15:03] Happy: After a few moments, Happy regains her composure and pulls away. "Lets find the rosenberry bushes."
[15:03] Shadowcaller: *since
[15:04] Happy: "Maybe you can find a scent trail from there."
[15:04] Wolfbane: Wolfbane lets go a little reluctantly, but does so. "Alright, I'll try."
[15:05] Shadowcaller: You come out at what once might have been a field, but now the jungel is slowly reclaiming this area
[15:06] Shadowcaller: A lone man is digging in the ground
[15:06] Shadowcaller: He is busy and do not take any notice of you
[15:07] Happy: Happy assumes they won't be able to speak to him anyway, so doesn't approach. She uses her wilderness survival skills to hunt for the bushes that the <creature we still don't know the name of> seems to like.
[15:08] Shadowcaller: It likes sweet fruits, often on the tallest of trees, linke bananas and such
[15:09] Shadowcaller: Sometimes it takes the lower bushes however
[15:09] Shadowcaller: But otherwise it keeps itself away from the ground
[15:09] Happy: (creature's name?)
[15:09] Shadowcaller: Koumori
[15:10] Wolfbane: (Oh! Is it the Jabberwocke?)
[15:10] Wolfbane: (oh)
[15:11] Shadowcaller: The man stops digging and strokes his forehead with his hand, he sits down and suddenly see you
[15:12] Shadowcaller: He just look you a bit suprised however and don't do anything special
[15:12] Happy: "Do you smell anything?" Happy asks Wolfbane
[15:12] Wolfbane: Wolfbane sniffs the air to see if he can catch the scent.
[15:13] Shadowcaller: You can smell… rot
[15:13] Wolfbane: (Is it the same smell from the sample?)
[15:14] Shadowcaller: (No, its different.)
[15:14] Shadowcaller: (You smell somthing rotting.)
[15:14] Happy: (undead! O.o)
[15:14] Shadowcaller: *something
[15:14] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shakes his head. "No, but there is a different smell. Do you want to check it out?"
[15:15] Happy: "What type of smell? Something dangerous?"
[15:15] Shadowcaller: The smell comes from the other side of the fielf
[15:15] Wolfbane: "Something rotting, most likely dead."
[15:15] Shadowcaller: *field
[15:16] Happy: "We should probably investigate then."
[15:17] Wolfbane: Wolfbane leads the way to the source of the smell.
[15:17] Happy: (does Wolfbane travel on all fours when he's sniffing?)
[15:18] Shadowcaller: As you move across the field the man suddnely yells at you something you don't understand, he don't seems to want you to go over there
[15:18] Wolfbane: (He'll lapse into it occaisonally)
[15:18] Wolfbane: (But he doesn't sniff the ground, just the air.)
[15:19] Wolfbane: Wolfbane stops when he sees the man. "Should we keep going or ignore him?"
[15:20] Happy: "We don't speak your language," Happy says to the man.
[15:21] Shadowcaller: He looks at you confused, and points at the direction you are going and shakes his head
[15:22] Shadowcaller: (I make so many misstakes when I'm fast-typing…)
[15:23] Wolfbane: "I'm more partial to seeing what it is, but its your choice."
[15:23] Happy: "Yes, I think we need to find out."
[15:24] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods and continues on.
[15:24] Shadowcaller: The man shrugs when you ignore his warnings and starts to dig again
[15:24] Happy: Happy goes with Wolfbane.
[15:24] Shadowcaller: As you come to the other end of the field you can see a large pile of cow corpses
[15:25] Shadowcaller: There are millions of flies circeling around them
[15:25] Shadowcaller: a few crows are trying to get their pick too
[15:25] Shadowcaller: As well as worms and other insects
[15:26] Happy: "Ugh. I don't think we'll find the Koumori here, if it prefres to eat fruits." Happy says.
[15:26] Shadowcaller: Actually, its an all eater
[15:26] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shudders when he sees the worms. He sees if he can tell what killed it.
[15:27] Shadowcaller: The cows unusually fat for being dead
[15:27] Shadowcaller: They didn't starve to death at least
[15:28] Happy: "A sacrifice? A predator wouldn't have killed so many and just left them."
[15:28] Wolfbane: "Something isn't right." Wolfbane sniffs the air to see if there is any other scent.
[15:29] Shadowcaller: The strong smell of rot is overwriting any other smell in the area, you feel sick
[15:29] Happy: Happy looks for tracks
[15:29] Shadowcaller: The smell overwhelmes you a bit
[15:30] Shadowcaller: There have been people moving around here
[15:30] Wolfbane: "I can't smell anything other than the corpses." Wolfbane shakes his head to try and clear the smell out. "We should look somewhere else."
[15:31] Happy: "And after the airship too," Happy mutters, not best pleased with the situation.
[15:31] Shadowcaller: Happy can see a strange bite mark on one cow
[15:31] Happy: She looks closer.
[15:31] Wolfbane: (15 minutes)
[15:31] Happy: Trying not to inhale.
[15:33] Shadowcaller: The blood around the wound looks dry
[15:34] Happy: Can I tell what might have made the bite?
[15:35] Wolfbane: (It is obviously the <insert the vague monster>)
[15:35] Wolfbane: (:P)
[15:35] Shadowcaller: Whatever made the bite, was not that large, you can see the markings of four teeths around the wound
[15:36] Happy: (how large is the koumori?)
[15:36] Shadowcaller: (a bit larger then a human.)
[15:37] Happy: (so larger than whatever left the wounds?)
[15:37] Shadowcaller: (wolfBane size.)
[15:37] Shadowcaller: (No, about as large.)
[15:37] Shadowcaller: (small in: Not freaking super monster.)
[15:37] Happy: (Ah. See I read small as 'much smaller than the cow')
[15:38] Happy: Happy begins walking a perimeter and working her way outwards, looking for non-human and non-cow tracks
[15:38] Wolfbane: Wolfbane follows her quietly trying to ignore the smell.
[15:38] Shadowcaller: Oh, while you looked at the cows, the looked quite… drained
[15:38] Shadowcaller: *they
[15:39] Wolfbane: ((Great, a giant leech))
[15:39] Shadowcaller: WolfBane can feel a strong discomfort around the rotting animals
[15:40] Wolfbane: (As in magic? Or something /off/ ?)
[15:40] Shadowcaller: Any other tracks then human are long gone, the humans was the last beings that were in the area
[15:40] Shadowcaller: (No, just discomfort of the smell.)
[15:40] Wolfbane: (ah)
[15:41] Shadowcaller: If there were tracks of other things, the humans have walked over them
[15:42] Happy: Then we keep moving on, away from the cows and the smell, looking for more clues. Or fruit trees.

[16:59] Happy: [15:43] Shadowcaller: Efter you leave the area wolfbane can smell something sweeter in all the smells of the jungle
[17:00] Wolfbane: Wolfbane's ears perk up. "There is something new now. Its… sweet."
[17:00] Shadowcaller: The smell seemms lead into the djungel itself, away from the field
[17:01] Happy: Happy follows Wolfbane.
[17:02] Wolfbane: Wolfbane follows the smell and keeps an eye out for any trouble.
[17:03] Shadowcaller: When you leave the field you see yourself sorrounded by trees and other types of jungel plants you can't name, the deeper in you go, the harder it is to keep moving
[17:04] Shadowcaller: The area have not been used by humans for very long,
[17:04] Happy: Happy uses her sword as a machete when necessary
[17:05] Wolfbane: Wolfbane takes out his spear and does the same if necessary.
[17:05] Shadowcaller: You find a path in the middle of the vegetation, by the dumps laying at the sides of it, you assume it was created and used by cattle
[17:05] Shadowcaller: Cows and such
[17:06] Shadowcaller: WolfBane can smell the dumps a long way
[17:06] Shadowcaller: The sweet smell is gone
[17:07] Happy: (dumps = cow droppings?)
[17:07] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[17:07] Happy: (backstabbry updated)
[17:07] Shadowcaller: (indeed.)
[17:07] Wolfbane: Wolfbane sighs. What is it with all these horrible smells? He still tries to follow the sweet scent though.
[17:08] Shadowcaller: Its hard to find again, you may have to leave the path first, or follow it to wherever it leads
[17:09] Wolfbane: Wolfbane looks to Happy. "It is hard to find the scent. Should we leave the path, or keep on it?"
[17:10] Happy: "I'll mark the trail here. We can start by following the path, and if it leads nowhere, at least we can quickly retrace our steps and return."
[17:10] Happy: Happy uses her dagger to make a few blaze marks
[17:11] Wolfbane: "Sounds good." Wolfbane continues along the path.
[17:11] Happy: Happy follows
[17:12] Shadowcaller: Happy and Wolfbane starts to feel a bit warm in the pressinf djungel heat, the air here is dense, it feels a bit difficult to breath, at the path it feels easuer thought
[17:12] Shadowcaller: *pressing
[17:12] Shadowcaller: *easier
[17:13] Shadowcaller: As you follow the path you see another dead cow, this one is not much more then a skeleton
[17:14] Wolfbane: "It seems that we are getting closer."
[17:15] Happy: "I hope so."
[17:15] Happy: "Although I must confess, there's a part of me - particularly my stomach - that hopes the airship leaves without us."
[17:16] Wolfbane: Wolfbane looks at her and chuckles. "That would be a relief."
[17:16] Happy: /And it would delay the time when I have to make a choice between helping Kuori or helping my friend/
[17:16] Happy: (inner thoughts)
[17:16] Shadowcaller: The path leads up to another open field in the middle of the djungel, seems like this once was the place where the cows where grazing
[17:17] Happy: looking for tracks/scents still
[17:17] Shadowcaller: There are a lot of stumps after trees, this whole area have been deforested from the looks of it
[17:17] Shadowcaller: *by
[17:18] Happy: Can we tell what caused it? Humans/beasts/ fire etc?
[17:18] Shadowcaller: Humans very likely
[17:19] Shadowcaller: There is nothing much to see here however, just more signs that the cows were here
[17:20] Happy: "Unless you smell something, I think we need to go back."
[17:20] Wolfbane: Wolfbane sniffs the air.
[17:21] Shadowcaller: You can sense that sweet smell again.. it leads into the djungel
[17:22] Shadowcaller: again
[17:22] Wolfbane: "There is that sweet smell again, do you want to keep following it?"
[17:23] Happy: "Yes. It seems to be related to the death of the cows somehow."
[17:24] Wolfbane: "Okay." Wolfbane follows the scent, but moves slower with his spear ready in case anything should happen.
[17:24] Shadowcaller: You enter the deep djungel again, the scent leading you deeper and deeper into it
[17:25] Shadowcaller: After a while Happy suddenly notices a red spot on her arm
[17:25] Shadowcaller: A closer inspection reveals that its blood
[17:25] Shadowcaller: You are now very deep into the djungel
[17:26] Wolfbane: (Does Wolfbane smell the blood?)
[17:26] Happy: She touches Wolfbane's arm silently to stop him.
[17:26] Wolfbane: Wolfbane stops and looks at Happy.
[17:26] Shadowcaller: All around you you cna hear the sounds of the djungel, insects, birds and other sounds tyou can't really make sense of
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane now realize that the sweet smell is coming from the blood
[17:26] Happy: She points to the blood, and then looks up, to see if it dripped down from above.
[17:27] Wolfbane: Wolfbane also looks up.
[17:27] Shadowcaller: It may had, but futher back, it appears it took you some time to notice it
[17:27] Wolfbane: Wolfbane whispers. "The smell is coming from the blood."
[17:28] Wolfbane: ((Does it smell sweet to him since it is blood, or is this special?))
[17:28] Happy: Happy's eyes follow the direction they came from.
[17:28] Shadowcaller: (No, its just blood.)
[17:29] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane realize there are two directions of the scent, one stronger (that he have followinf this far) leading deeper into the djungel and one weaker leading back from where they came
[17:29] Shadowcaller: *following
[17:30] Wolfbane: "The scent is stronger in front of us."
[17:30] Happy: "Lead on."
[17:31] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods and does so.
[17:31] Shadowcaller: As you are walking deeper and deeper into the djungel the sun starts setting
[17:32] Shadowcaller: Happy can see some blood in the vegetation…
[17:32] Happy: She points it out to Wolfbane.
[17:32] Happy: Though he probably smelled it before she saw it
[17:33] Shadowcaller: Well, Wolfbane is following the main scent that is still leading deeper into the djungel
[17:34] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods to her. "We'll have to be careful unless we want ours mixed with it."
[17:34] Shadowcaller: You can feel the djungel cool down a bit after the sun started setting, it feels refreshing
[17:35] Wolfbane: "Will you need a torch when it gets dark?"
[17:36] Happy: "Probably. The moon won't penetrate far through this vegetation."
[17:38] Wolfbane: Wolfbane proceeds to gather branches for a torch. "Will you be able to light it?"
[17:38] Happy: "I have a tinder and flint. But let's avoid lighting it until necessary."
[17:39] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods as he finishes the torch. "Ready to go on?"
[17:40] Happy: "Yes."
[17:40] Wolfbane: "Just tell me when you need the torch." Wolfbane says as he heads off.
[17:43] Shadowcaller: After some time you come into what appears to be a clearing, you are standing on the edge of a cliff, ten meters down is a small river and beyond it is a some type of hole in the ground, its overgrown with vegetation, just as the cliffwall is
[17:44] Shadowcaller: The source of the scent is located down the cliff you can feel
[17:44] *** moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[17:45] Happy: "I don't have any rope," Happy mutters.
[17:45] Murska: (hi all)
[17:45] Happy: ((We're in the middle of the hunt))
[17:45] Murska: ('kay)
[17:45] Shadowcaller: (Hello)
[17:45] Wolfbane: "Since it is getting dark, do you want to stop for the night? It would be easier to climb down in the morning."
[17:46] Happy: "I'd rather not risk losing our quarry."
[17:46] Happy: "At least the cliffwall is overgrown. It should provide enough things to hold to."
[17:48] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods. "But first things first." Wolfbane looks for a thick vine to use as a line to tie them together.
[17:49] Wolfbane: ((How tall is the cliff?)
[17:49] Shadowcaller: (about 10 meters, not sure how much that is in non-metric system)
[17:49] Wolfbane: 30ft
[17:50] Wolfbane: (Just about)
[17:50] Shadowcaller: (Okay 30 feet then.)
[17:51] Wolfbane: (Not enough to kill if you fall, but enough to seriously injure someone)
[17:51] Murska: (With proper technique, just something to drop off from.)
[17:53] Shadowcaller: Its getting colder, the sun is nearly gone now
[17:54] Wolfbane: Wolfbane hands an end of the vine to Happy. "Tie it around your waist, just in case one of us slips."
[17:54] Happy: Happy does so.
[17:54] Wolfbane: "Ready to go down?"
[17:55] Happy: Happy nods, and begins climbing
[17:56] Wolfbane: Wolfbane also climbs
[17:56] Shadowcaller: The climb is not easy, but managable
[17:58] Shadowcaller: As you finally can feel ground benath your feets again, you find yourself before another obcastle, the river
[17:58] Wolfbane: (How strong is the current?)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: *obstacle
[17:59] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see in the dark
[17:59] Happy: Which way is the scent?
[17:59] Shadowcaller: It appears to be calm at least
[17:59] Shadowcaller: On the other side
[17:59] Happy: "Can you swim?"
[17:59] Shadowcaller: You suspect in might lead into that hole…
[18:00] Wolfbane: "Yes. I can. Are you able to?"
[18:01] Happy: "Yes." (does the hole look large enough for us to enter?)
[18:02] Shadowcaller: It appeared to be quite large from the cliff, its filled with djungle vegetation thought
[18:03] Happy: Happy starts to wade across the river, swimming if it gets deep.
[18:03] Wolfbane: Wolfbane does the same. (Is the line still attached?)
[18:04] Happy: (yes)
[18:04] Wolfbane: (Good)
[18:05] Shadowcaller: You soon find yourself swimming
[18:05] Shadowcaller: The currents are a bit stronger then expected, so you find yourself drifiting along with them
[18:06] Happy: (Rawwr! We're stronger than any puny old river!)
[18:06] Wolfbane: (*beats the river into submission*)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: You struggle against the currents, but when you finally have managed to get to the other side you see that you have drifted much further down it
[18:08] Wolfbane: Wolfbane sniffs the air to try and find the scent.
[18:08] Shadowcaller: Its much stronger here on the other side of the river, you are very close now
[18:09] Shadowcaller: Even during the night the djungel seems restless, you can hear insects everywhere aroudn you
[18:09] Shadowcaller: *around
[18:10] Murska: *jungle?
[18:10] Shadowcaller: *yeah, sorry
[18:11] Wolfbane: Wolfbane motions to Happy that they are close. Trying to stay silent, he leads on.
[18:12] Happy: *follows*
[18:12] Shadowcaller: As you walk on, Wolfbane almost fall down into the hole
[18:14] Shadowcaller: Its a submergence with trees and other type of vegetation sorrounding it, the vegetation even seems to have started growing down its walls
[18:14] Wolfbane: (Does the scent go into it?)
[18:15] Shadowcaller: The place practically reaks of the scent, its down there alright
[18:15] Shadowcaller: *reek
[18:15] Shadowcaller: *reeks
[18:16] Shadowcaller: Its very dark down there, even for Wolfbanes eyes
[18:16] Wolfbane: "We may need that torch. I can't see down there."
[18:18] Happy: Happy tries to light the torch.
[18:18] Shadowcaller: She succeds
[18:19] Shadowcaller: As you light it, wolfbane can suddenly pick up a sound coming from the deepths of the hole
[18:19] Wolfbane: Wolfbane readies his spear, pointing it at the hole. "Careful, something may be coming out."
[18:20] Wolfbane: (I take it his spear emits a low blue light from the enchantment?)
[18:21] Shadowcaller: (It dose.)
[18:21] Wolfbane: (Oh, I don't think Happy knew about the new spear)
[18:21] Happy: Happy draws her sword.
[18:23] Shadowcaller: More sounds are coming from the cave now, even Happy can hear this
[18:23] Happy: Happy moves towards the sounds.
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (Down inot the hold then?)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: *into
[18:24] Happy: Yes. Happy is trying to lead the way.
[18:24] Wolfbane: Wolfbane follows.
[18:25] Shadowcaller: As you go into the hole…. suddenly you can see hundreds of small eyes reflect the light ot the torch
[18:25] Happy: O.o
[18:25] Wolfbane: O.o
[18:25] Wolfbane: Wolfbane gets ready for whatever happens.
[18:25] Shadowcaller: A huge swarm of creatures flies out from the hole
[18:25] Shadowcaller: Bats
[18:26] Wolfbane: Needless to say, Wolfbane is startled. He ducks under the swarm.
[18:26] Happy: Also ducks
[18:26] Wolfbane: (*is extremely happy that it was only bats*)
[18:27] Shadowcaller: After some time the bats seems to have either calmed down or left the hole.
[18:27] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[18:28] Wolfbane: Wolfbane looks at Happy. "Umm…. I'm ready whenever you are."
[18:28] Happy: Happy nods, and keeps going. (the scent is still ahead, right?)
[18:28] Shadowcaller: It is
[18:29] Wolfbane: Wolfbane follows.
[18:29] Shadowcaller: You can see blood on the walls, something has been dragged in here
[18:29] Shadowcaller: The smell of rot and blood is very strong here
[18:30] Wolfbane: Wolfbane shakes off the scent of blood before it starts to get to him. He keeps following Happy.
[18:31] Shadowcaller: As you go fruther into the cave you see the remains of smaller cattle, goats and such
[18:32] Shadowcaller: You go downward, you soon find yourself in a almost hall-like cave
[18:32] Shadowcaller: This is the source, this hall
[18:32] Shadowcaller: You hear something above you
[18:33] Wolfbane: Wolfbane looks up.
[18:33] Happy: So does Happy
[18:33] Shadowcaller: Two huge red eyes look down upon you
[18:34] Shadowcaller: Whatever it is moves extremly fast, the next moment the eyes are gone
[18:35] Happy: *hold the torch higher, looking for the quarry*
[18:36] Wolfbane: Wolfbane also listens closely for any sign of it.
[18:36] Shadowcaller: But before you can ready yourself from the shock a huge creature dashes into happy, making her lose her breath
[18:36] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane didn't even see the thing
[18:37] Happy: (Happy's knocked down then?)
[18:37] Wolfbane: "Happy!" Wolfbane backs up to her, ready in case it attacks again. "Are you alright?"
[18:37] Shadowcaller: (she is.)
[18:38] Shadowcaller: Suddenly a sound far more high then you ever heard before echoes inthe cave
[18:38] Shadowcaller: *in the
[18:38] Happy: Happy tries to catch her breath and get back to her feet.
[18:38] Shadowcaller: WOlfbane and Happy can feel themselves blacking out from the sound, their ears are bleeding
[18:39] Wolfbane: Wolfbane drops to his knees, holding his head in pain. He is much more sensitive to it than Happy.
[18:41] Shadowcaller: You can feel something draw pass you, the draft of this movement makes the torch go out
[18:41] Wolfbane: (Did the sound stop?)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: And you can't hear anything, you are temporarly deafened
[18:41] Wolfbane: (Ah)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: (you think so.)
[18:42] Happy: Happy tries to stab after whatever went past her.
[18:42] Shadowcaller: You fail
[18:42] Wolfbane: Wolfbane stands up, dazed and slightly dizzy. He picks up his spear and looks around for movement.
[18:43] Shadowcaller: Happy can feel claws on her back, they tear trought her skin like razors
[18:43] Wolfbane: (Does Wolfbaen see this?)
[18:43] Shadowcaller: (you are currently turned away from happy.)
[18:43] Happy: She screams, but can't hear herself scream, and tries to roll over and stab upwards.
[18:44] Wolfbane: Wolfbane continues to look around.
[18:44] Shadowcaller: The claws are gone, Wolfbane turns and sees happy on her back with her knife weaving into the air
[18:44] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see anything thought
[18:44] Happy: (sword, not knife)
[18:44] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[18:45] Shadowcaller: You can smell her blood
[18:45] Wolfbane: Wolfbane rushes to her and looks her over.
[18:46] Shadowcaller: You feel something hitting you from behind, you fall over and look up, but the creature is gone again
[18:46] Shadowcaller: It almost crushed your spine, you have back pains
[18:47] Happy: (can we hear again yet?)
[18:47] Shadowcaller: (nope)
[18:48] Wolfbane: Wolfbane forces himself up, ignoring the agony. He grabs Happy and tries to get her to a wall so they can see the chamber and have their back protected.
[18:48] Happy: Happy moves with him, trying to move back to back with him until they reach the wall
[18:49] Shadowcaller: You press against the chamber wall, the world is silent around you
[18:50] Shadowcaller: Suddenly WolfBane hears a voice in his head /Leave this place, you have no business here./
[18:50] Shadowcaller: (happy hears this too.)
[18:50] Happy: /Who are you?/
[18:50] Wolfbane: /Why? I am here to help a friend and I won't leave until I have done so./
[18:51] Shadowcaller: /I have never tasted the blood of your kind… yet, leave this place before I do so./ The voice seems to ignore your questions
[18:54] Wolfbane: /What are you? If you would tell us, and help us with what we need, then we would willingly leave in peace./
[18:55] Shadowcaller: /You come into my home uninvited and dare to make demands? I think not, leave now if you want to live./
[18:56] Wolfbane: Wolfbane lowers his spear. /Please, help us and you will never see us again./
[18:56] Shadowcaller: /Give me any reason I should help you? I can already smell your blood… so sweet…/
[19:00] Wolfbane: /Because I can garuantee that my blood not be nearly as sweet as you think. I am a Chosen of Zubera and I have changed. And I promise you, that if you tried, you would not live past the attempt./
[19:01] Wolfbane: /But, I also promise you that if you help, we will leave and never come back. Or say a word about this place./
[19:02] Shadowcaller: /Give me a reason i should trust you oh "choosen of Zubera"? Why did you even come here in the first place?/
[19:03] Happy: Happy feels herself growing faint from her wounds, and tries to remain conscious.
[19:05] Wolfbane: Wolfbane notices Happy starting to get dizzy and grabs her to keep her standing. /We came to help a dear friend. All we need is a bit of fur/pelt from <insert creature's name>. Please, I'll give you my word that we would leave in peace and never return./
[19:06] Shadowcaller: /Tell me then, who send you? Whats this persons name?/
[19:07] Wolfbane: /Her name was Yani./
[19:08] Shadowcaller: /Then run back home now and tell this "Yani" that MY fur is not some thing to be keept!/
[19:09] Shadowcaller: /COnsider yourself very lucky that I do not kill you right now./
[19:09] Happy: "No!" Happy snarls, and uses a blast of holy energy to try and find the creature.
[19:10] Wolfbane: /Then too bad, we cannot leave empty handed. I trust you won't find my blood so sweet./
[19:10] Shadowcaller: You can see a glipse of a large bat-like creature in the holy light
[19:10] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://s250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/?action=view&current=devil_bat.jpg)http://s250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/?action=view&current=devil_bat.jpg
[19:10] Wolfbane: Wolfbane sets Happy against the wall and raises his spear.
[19:11] Shadowcaller: You can no longer see the creature, you know its around here somewhere but it don't attack
[19:11] Wolfbane: (Can it still hear thoughts?)
[19:11] Shadowcaller: (You can't know that right?)
[19:12] Wolfbane: (Hehe, okay)
[19:13] Wolfbane: /It must feel so bad, being blinded and all. And just in time for our friends to come and help too./
[19:13] Shadowcaller: The creature don't seems to respond
[19:15] Wolfbane: Wolfbane continues. /So helpless, so alone. We could have done this peacefully. Go ahead and cower, but I can smell you now, so close. Turned away from me. Like prey./
[19:16] Happy: (Can Wolfbane find it by smell?)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (its hard to distinct the exact smell in its home.)
[19:17] Shadowcaller: Its guano everywhere anyway
[19:18] Shadowcaller: The creature is still silent
[19:19] Wolfbane: (Are they able to hear anything yet?)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: You start to hear a bit, but all you can hear is a beeping sound in your ear
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Not the sound you went deaf off, but you can hear that somtimes after you recover from deafness.)
[19:21] Happy: Happy remains against the wall, sword in front of her.
[19:21] Wolfbane: (Yeah)
[19:22] Wolfbane: Wolfbane stays with Happy, waiting for the attack.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane can see something moving near the dungeon exit
[19:25] Wolfbane: Wolfbane, seeing the movement, throws his spear as hard as he can at it.
[19:27] Shadowcaller: The spear seems to hit something, the blue light reveals the huge bat creature again, the spear has impaled its left wing
[19:27] Shadowcaller: But its still moving, running
[19:28] Happy: Happy, now that she can see it, runs after.
[19:28] Wolfbane: Wolfbane rushes after it.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: The creature tries to fly despite its impaled wing, it lands on the other bank of the river
[19:30] Shadowcaller: With its right foot it tears out the spear from its wing
[19:30] Happy: (we left the underground part?)
[19:30] Shadowcaller: (you did.)
[19:30] Happy: Happy pulls out her bow and tries to shoot it.
[19:30] Shadowcaller: Its too far away, you miss
[19:31] Wolfbane: Wolfbane dives right into the river and swims as fast as he can to catch up to it.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: The creature that can't climb instead flies a bit above the river, then it dives against you from above as you are swimming
[19:32] Wolfbane: /I can smell you now. Your blood… will be sweet. You can't escape the hunt/
[19:32] Shadowcaller: You can feel its claws against your face, tearing you apart
[19:32] Wolfbane: Wolfbane tries to grab onto the creature.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: Leaving large scars
[19:33] Wolfbane: He tries to bite into it.
[19:33] Happy: Happy tries again to shoot.
[19:34] Shadowcaller: You can feel the creatures claws in your mouth, you bit it
[19:34] Shadowcaller: *bite
[19:34] Shadowcaller: Now you both are underwater
[19:34] Shadowcaller: The creature continues to attack you with its claws
[19:34] Wolfbane: Keeping his jaws clamped shut, he tries to tear it apart.
[19:34] Shadowcaller: Happy misses as both combatants are under the water
[19:35] Wolfbane: Wolfbane starts to fall into Bloodlust from the pain and the scent of blood from before.
[19:35] Shadowcaller: The creature also seems to fall into some kind of frenzy
[19:35] Happy: Happy draws her dagger and dives into the water after them.
[19:36] Shadowcaller: You are locked into each other, dealing as much damage as you cna t each other
[19:36] Shadowcaller: *can
[19:36] Shadowcaller: *to
[19:36] Happy: Does Happy reach them?
[19:36] Wolfbane: Wolfbane digs his claws into one of its shoulders to try to tear it off.
[19:36] Shadowcaller: You do so, but you lose your grip of the creature
[19:37] Shadowcaller: with its left leg in your mouth you can see if dirft down the river, out of your reach
[19:37] Shadowcaller: *drift
[19:37] Wolfbane: He swims up to catch a bit of air.
[19:38] Shadowcaller: You are bleeding heavily
[19:38] Shadowcaller: happy now reaches you
[19:39] Happy: Happy takes hold of Wolfbane and tries to heal him.
[19:39] Shadowcaller: You cna't see anything with your right eye
[19:39] Shadowcaller: *can't
[19:39] Shadowcaller: Some of the wounds are healed
[19:39] Wolfbane: Wolfbane tries to swim to the closest shore, but is weakened from blood loss
[19:39] Shadowcaller: But Wofbane is still in bad shape
[19:40] Wolfbane: (Does the think this have his spear?)
[19:40] Happy: "Stay with me, stay with me," Happy says, trying to help him to shore.
[19:40] Shadowcaller: The spear is on the other side of the river
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (Hmm, of some reason that creature was a more epic villian then our last o.O)
[19:41] Happy: (at least it didn't come with an army)
[19:41] Shadowcaller: What do you do with the creatures leg?
[19:41] Shadowcaller: Or rather foot
[19:41] Wolfbane: "We… we can still get it. It won't survive for long without… the limb." (He still has it with him)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: You didn't tear off the whole limb
[19:42] Wolfbane: (Do they reach the shore?)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (you do.)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (what shore where you swimming to?)
[19:43] Wolfbane: (Whichever one was closer I think, but hopefully the one with the spear)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: (the one with the spear then.)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: You reach the shore, wolfbane feels quite dizzy
[19:43] Shadowcaller: He still can't see anything on his right eye
[19:44] Shadowcaller: He have a lot of scars in his face
[19:45] Happy: Happy checks him over more carefully now, applying first aid.
[19:45] Wolfbane: Wolfbane tries to crawl to his spear, but is too weak. "We…can still…"
[19:45] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane falls to the ground while Happy is tyring to fix his wound
[19:46] Shadowcaller: *trying
[19:46] Shadowcaller: *wounds
[19:46] Shadowcaller: He got a huge open wound at his right arm
[19:46] Shadowcaller: WOlfbane feels that arm grow stiff
[19:47] Happy: Happy bandages the wound, applying pressure.
[19:48] Wolfbane: Wolfbane distantly feels the hands on him and doesn't seem to mind.
[19:49] Shadowcaller: Despite your wounds you manage to stay conscious
[19:50] Shadowcaller: happy don't have enough band aid to cover all your wounds thought
[19:51] Shadowcaller: You start to hear things again
[19:51] Happy: "We need help," she says, hoping the scrying rune can hear her, as she tries again to magically heal Wolfbane.
[19:51] Wolfbane: Wolfbane seems to get his thoughts together for a moment and tries to turn his head towards Happy. "How… bad is it?"
[19:52] Shadowcaller: Happy don't have enough energy fro another heal
[19:52] Shadowcaller: *for
[19:52] Happy: She lies down next to him, holding him. "Hang on. Just hang on."
[19:52] Shadowcaller: /I am coming,/ Happy can hear inside her head.
[19:53] Wolfbane: Wolfbane relaxes and tries to put a paw over her. "I will, I promise you."
[19:54] Shadowcaller: After some time WolfBane grows colder, he is close to lapse into unconsciousness
[19:55] Shadowcaller: He have lost a great deal of blood
[19:55] Wolfbane: Wolfbane speaks very quietly. "I…promise…"
[19:55] Happy: Happy covers him with his cloak, and lies close to him to share her body heat
[19:56] Shadowcaller: You wait, Wolfbane is getting worse
[19:56] Shadowcaller: He can hardly move now
[19:56] Happy: /please hurry. He's dying./
[19:57] Shadowcaller: /I'm near now, be patient./
[19:57] Shadowcaller: You can see something in the air, Wolfbane can see the edges of his vision blur
[19:58] Wolfbane: He is now barely speaking in a whisper. "I…can't, not…now. I promised."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: The thing comes closer, its Arik
[19:59] Shadowcaller: He gently lands at the bank and looks at you "What happend?"
[19:59] Happy: Happy clings to Wolfbane, as if she can hold him to life that way.
[20:00] Happy: "He's lost too much blood," Happy says. "Please, can you do anything?"
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "Hm, I can't heal him… you can heal right?"
[20:01] Happy: "I gave him all the healing I had."
[20:02] Wolfbane: brb
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "I can make you able to give him more."
[20:02] Shadowcaller: He comes closer
[20:02] Happy: "Do it."
[20:03] Happy: "Please. I can't lose him."
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "As you wish." He touches you, you can feel yourself blackout for just one moment, then you are back, you have new energy, but something feels wrong…
[20:06] Happy: Happy doesn't think for a moment about the wrongness. She immediately pours all the healing into Wolfbane that she can.
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane can feel his wounds close, he gaps for air as he is given new life, right before the edge of death
[20:10] Happy: Happy just holds him in relief.
[20:10] Shadowcaller: Arik seems unconcerned, "So, what happend?"
[20:13] Happy: "We tracked it to its lair. Wolfbane fought it, chased it through the water. Ripped off one of its limbs." Starting to remember their purpose now, she sits up, and looks to see if the leg is there. "The creature should be dead. It's body drifted downstream."
[20:14] Wolfbane: Wolfbane blinks.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "I see… well, I guess I will look for it then, before its really gone."
[20:14] Wolfbane: "Happy?"
[20:14] Shadowcaller: Arik nods toward them and then flies off again
[20:15] Happy: Happy turns back to Wolfbane, and checks his wound.
[20:15] Happy: *wounds
[20:15] Shadowcaller: Most of the scars have now healed, but he still can't see with his right eye
[20:16] Shadowcaller: He can move once again
[20:16] Shadowcaller: only with little discomfort
[20:16] Wolfbane: Wolfbane props himself up and looks at Happy. "How…are you okay?"
[20:17] Happy: "I'm not badly hurt." (which is only true in comparison to him)
[20:17] Happy: (is the bat leg nearby?)
[20:18] Wolfbane: "How… bad am I and why can't I see out of my right eye?"
[20:18] Shadowcaller: (it is.)
[20:18] Wolfbane: Wolfbane reaches up to feel it.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: (As is his spear.)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: You grab the bat leg, it feels leathery
[20:19] Happy: "You almost died. I don't know about your eye, if it can be fixed."
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (Just a note, the bat ate fruits and blood.)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: (Like a mix of different families of bats.)
[20:20] Wolfbane: (Does Wolfbane even have his eye?)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (Your not sure, it might have been teared off in the battle.)
[20:21] Happy: O.o
[20:21] Happy: (Happy can't tell if it's still there?)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (His eye is closed.)
[20:22] Shadowcaller: (if the eyeball is there or not is hard to see.)
[20:22] Shadowcaller: (He haven't opened it since the battle.)
[20:22] Happy: (Probably better not to check until we're someplace clean)
[20:23] Happy: "Arik went to find the body of the creature. Can you walk yet?"
[20:23] Wolfbane: Wolfbane tries to stand up.
[20:24] Shadowcaller: You do so, but not without discomfort
[20:25] Shadowcaller: You can feel your whole body aching with pain
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (The creatures name was koumori by the way.)
[20:25] Happy: (Yeah, but I figure Happy has forgotten that by now)
[20:27] Wolfbane: Wolfbane winces and grabs his spear and sheaths it. He then does something unexpected. He walks over and hugs Happy. "I had promised that I wasn't going to go. I fully intended to keep that promise."
[20:27] Happy: Happy hugs him back, and then bursts into tears.
[20:28] Murska: (aww)
[20:29] Wolfbane: Wolfbane holds her. "I won't break promises that I can keep."
[20:33] Happy: Happy regains her composure, and goes to collect the leg. "I don't think we can try that cliff now. Let's just follow the river, and see if it leads back to the town."
[20:34] Wolfbane: Wolfbane nods. "That sounds like a good plan."
[20:34] Shadowcaller: In what direction do you follow the river?
[20:35] Happy: Does Happy have any sort of direction sense for which way leads back to town?
[20:35] Shadowcaller: Well, you are most likely very far from the town now
[20:36] Shadowcaller: So its hard to know where you are exactly
[20:37] Happy: Then we go downstream, since that's the way Arik went.
[20:38] Shadowcaller: After some time walking you can see Arik coming toward you in the air, he is carrying something
[20:38] Wolfbane: Wolfbane is limping alongside Happy.
[20:39] Shadowcaller: He lands before you
[20:39] Shadowcaller: And throws the koumori at your feet
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "Its dead alright."
[20:40] Happy: Happy takes out her dagger and starts to skin it.
[20:40] Wolfbane: Wolfbane tries to help where he can.
[20:40] Happy: "Which way is the town?" Happy asks.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: "Just follow me once you are done, I can take the rest of its remains."
[20:43] Happy: "Do you need the rest of it?" Happy asks. "I wouldn't want to eat it." It shouldn't take her long to finish skinning the creature, and its severed limb.
[20:44] Wolfbane: Wolfbane chuckles. "Trust me, you wouldn't. It didn't taste good at all. I'd know."
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "I belive it could hold magic propeties."
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "I mean, those wings could never carry a creature of that size, therefore it must have been magical in nature."
[20:47] Wolfbane: "Then you can carry them. We just came for the pelt."
[20:48] Shadowcaller: "Deal."
[20:48] Shadowcaller: "Just tell me when you are done… taking the skin off."
[20:50] Happy: Happy finishes, and folds the pelt.
[20:51] Happy: strapping it to the outside of her pack.
[20:51] Happy: "How did you carry it yourself?" Happy asks.
[20:51] Shadowcaller: "Magic." Arik smiles
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Arik picks up the remains, with a tought the flesh is rend from the creature, leaving only bones
[20:53] Shadowcaller: He picks them up "Too bad only works on dead creaures…"
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "So, are you ready to leave?"
[20:53] Happy: Happy smiles at him, and goes back to Wolfbane's side, putting her arm around him to support him, though probably by now she's the one who needs support more. "Quite ready," she says.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "Perfect." You find yourself able to fly
[20:54] Wolfbane: Wolfbane lets Happy put her arm around him. He doesn't mind the contact anymore.
[20:55] Shadowcaller: He leaves the ground once again, floating in mid-air "Are you coming?"
[20:55] Happy: Happy is startled for a moment, but since she's flown magically before, she soon recovers.
[20:55] Wolfbane: Wolfbane follows Happy's example.
[20:56] Shadowcaller: Arik leaves, going toward what you assume must be the town.
[20:57] Happy: They follow.
[20:57] Shadowcaller: After quite a long time you can see the town again
[20:59] Shadowcaller: Arik lands some distance from the town, not wanting to draw any attention to himself
[21:00] Wolfbane: (I think Happy and Wolfbane would like to get back to the house as quickly as possible)
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (So you fly all the way to Yani's house then?)
[21:00] Happy: (I doubt they could find their way there from the air)
[21:01] Happy: Happy takes Wolfbane's paw and tries to land with him, near Arik.
[21:01] Wolfbane: (True, maybe the airship and walk from there?)
[21:01] Wolfbane: Wolfbane lands with Happy
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "So, almost there." He smiles at you
[21:01] Shadowcaller: And then he starts walking toward the town
[21:03] Happy: Happy follows, still trying to support Wolfbane. She's a little surprised to still have so much energy after everything
[21:03] Wolfbane: Wolfbane limps along.
[21:04] Shadowcaller: People look at you curiosly as you walk trought town
[21:04] Shadowcaller: But finally you reach Yani's house
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Arik enters first, the first thing you can see when you enter it is that Ai is there too, he appears deeply concenrned for you
