Demons In The Forest

[02:14] Shadowcaller: Aegnor säger:
/Let's go find the spot then./
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
/right, lead on./
Aegnor säger:
They circle around the village to get to the river
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
[02:14] General Shrimp: We'd come up with a water filled hidden pit trap…
[02:15] Murska: How intelligent are they?
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Depends, if they aren't lead by some higher demon, they are pretty stupid
[02:16] General Shrimp: Awesome. Okay, Hector sets to work on making a pit trap while also creating an underground route for the water to flow into it.
[02:18] Shadowcaller: Cerons Keep is burned to the ground, it's palisade have been toppled and the keep itself lies in ruins. It's a huge crater in the middle of the village and one some distance away from the entrance to it. There are torched corpses everywhere
[02:20] Shadowcaller: The work will take a few hours and there are huge demons moving about…
[02:20] Shadowcaller: Where are you making the hole?
[02:21] Murska: At some point that's not very far from the river but prefarably still doesn't have line of sight to it
[02:21] Murska: add all the other requirements for a trap spot such as that the enemy will most likely take that route in the position etf.
[02:21] Murska: etc*
[02:22] Shadowcaller: Well, there are trees so you are covered by them.
[02:22] Murska: Since once we drop one infernal into a pittrap and the other three come knocking, we might want to be on the other side of said river
[02:23] Shadowcaller: The infernal is moving up the road right now.
[02:23] Murska: While Hector is working and Wren is probably staying with him, Derek is keeping an eye on the enemy.
[02:25] Shadowcaller: It appears like the infernal you have spotted is moving slowly towards Wind Pine, you can also spot yet another going towards the ruins of Cerons Keep.
[02:26] Murska: No sign of others?
[02:26] General Shrimp: Well, Hector is kinda stuck, hard at work, until Derek gets a target to come over.
[02:27] Shadowcaller: You can see signs, torched trees and torned down trees, Wren spots a third one, going along the river.
[02:27] Shadowcaller: Hector sees this as well.
[02:28] Shadowcaller: Where is Derek exactly?
[02:28] Murska: Somewhere with a good view over the entire area.
[02:28] General Shrimp: A third one going along the river? Along it as in next to it, or in it? And which side?"
[02:29] Shadowcaller: Not in it, by your side, upstreams, towards the ruins of starlight where you first meet Luna.
[02:29] General Shrimp: Along towards or away from them?
[02:30] Shadowcaller: Away from them.
[02:30] Shadowcaller: Derek spots it in that case.
[02:32] Shadowcaller: Since higher up means upstream.
[02:33] Murska: I guess the first target will be the one going by the road.
[02:33] Murska: Skip to Hector being done?
[02:34] General Shrimp: Yeah…sure…Hector ain't gonna do much for a while.
[02:34] General Shrimp: It depends how fast the infernals are going I suppose.
[02:34] General Shrimp: SC?
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Um, the infernal is moving pretty slow but takes long steps, it might already be half-way to Wind Pine once you are done.
[02:37] Murska: Well, he'll go get it to follow him once Hector's done enough to be able to say that he will be done before the infernal is there.
[02:38] General Shrimp: So, it'll be about a quarter of the way there…?
[02:39] Shadowcaller: Right
[02:41] Shadowcaller: As you are working you suddenly see a blue light shimmer nearby and Luna appears before you, she seems a bit upset "What in the moon are you doing here?!"
[02:42] General Shrimp: "Trying to deal with some demon infernal things that are causing real damage around here!"
[02:43] Shadowcaller: "Don't you realize how dangerous… they have burned the whole town!"
[02:44] Shadowcaller: It sounds like she can't really belive that yet
[02:44] General Shrimp: "Yes, they have. I don't want to be here, Luna, but I couldn't persuade Derek to abandon this as a lost cause. We're quite probably going to die."
[02:45] Shadowcaller: "…your all insane, all my friends might have died down there and now you are throwing yourself into the demons way aswell?! Gah!"
[02:46] General Shrimp: "I don't want to, Luna! Find Derek! Convince him that this is madness! Please…" Hector sighs and closes his eyes, concentrating on his work, trying to get it done as quickly as possible. "Our plan…it could work…but I don't want to be here. I don't want Wren to be here."
[02:48] Shadowcaller: "I'm not letting you do this…" She dissapears in a blue light and eventually she appears right behind Derek "Are you out of your mind?!" Luna yells.
[02:49] Murska: /Be quiet!/
[02:50] Shadowcaller: /They haven't noticed me the last time I yelled and that dosen't matter since you are going back with me now!/
[02:51] Murska: /What are you talking about?/
[02:51] Shadowcaller: /I
[02:52] Shadowcaller: /I'm not letting you die out here, this town just got slaughtered, you are not going to join them Derek./
[02:55] Murska: /I have to try and save the rest./
[02:55] Happy: (Karen: )
[02:56] Happy: (she did not run away in proper travelling garb)
[02:56] General Shrimp: (I see…)
[02:56] Shadowcaller: /There is no rest! My home is burned, my friends… I don't know. But you are going with me, I can still save you…/
[02:57] Shadowcaller: He feels something tugging his sleeve and then he finds himself some place else in the forest, near the river.
[02:58] Shadowcaller: Wren and Hecotor can see Luna and Derek turning up near them.
[02:59] Murska: He grabs her arm with a fast movement. /Hey!/
[02:59] General Shrimp: "Please…tell me you didn't force him back here."
[02:59] Shadowcaller: Luna pulls her hand back "It's for your own good."
[02:59] * Elly has left the conversation.
[03:00] Shadowcaller: (Huh…)
[03:00] Happy: (elly said bai in big chat)
[03:00] General Shrimp: (Elly going sleepy-byes?)
[03:00] Murska: 'Like hell it is.'
[03:00] Happy: (she didn't say… just poofed. you fell out of big chat, Shrimp. do you want back?)
[03:00] General Shrimp: (No, I'm busy. Decided I was doing too much stuffs.
[03:01] Happy: (okay. i figured)
[03:01] General Shrimp: (I wanna listen properly to this massive Star Wars review!)
[03:01] Happy: (haha… got you hooked)
[03:01] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I figured.) "Think for a moment! There are five of those things! Five!"
[03:01] General Shrimp: (It's interesting seeing someone ripping it apart)
[03:01] General Shrimp: (Um, 4 SC. You said there were 4!)
[03:02] Murska: 'It's not like I'm going to fight to the death with all of them.'
[03:02] Shadowcaller: (No, I said the NPC's had seen four.)
[03:02] General Shrimp: (Cheating little…)
[03:02] General Shrimp: (:P)
[03:02] Murska: (Somehow the girl who hasn't been even close has seen more than the people who were there when they came down. :P)
[03:04] Shadowcaller: (You haven't talked to anyone that was there when they came down except Kerm and he didn't give you a number. And they all didn't came down at the same site or at the same time as you can see with the craters.)
[03:05] General Shrimp: (I know, I know, I'm joking!)
[03:06] Shadowcaller: "How in the night are you going to kill five of those things?"
[03:06] General Shrimp: "With a really big trap.
[03:06] General Shrimp: "Filled with water."
[03:07] Murska: 'If I deem it unlikely that we can do anything more about them, then we retreat.'
[03:07] Murska: (three and half meter tall burning rock things and we can't even spot them properly. >)
[03:07] Murska: (»)
[03:08] Shadowcaller: (Well, one didn't even land near the village.)
[03:09] General Shrimp: (Let's just get on with it! Or I'm gonna go to bed!)
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "It's already too late, the forest is burning, those things have started a forest fire."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "It's hard to see from here, but it's coming… thankfully they are making fuelless paths as they walk so it might prevent the spread.
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "
[03:16] General Shrimp: (Sorry, can't focus, gonna have to stop. Like I said, I didn't really want to do it today anyway…)
[03:16] *
General *grumble* Shrimp has left the conversation.
[03:17] Shadowcaller: (Night >.>)
[03:17] Murska: 'kay, that's that for Demon today
[03:17] Happy: Unless Karen arrives now
[03:18] Shadowcaller: She could >.>
[03:18] Happy: I'm sure that would make Derek and Luna both every so happy
[03:18] Shadowcaller: As Luna went back to her father, scounted a bit… yeah it makes sense.
[03:18] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…)
[03:19] Shadowcaller: *scouted
[03:20] Murska: but we'd still need Hector there
[03:21] Happy: not for the rp part
[03:22] Murska: Well he'd be standing right there anyway
[03:22] Murska: I'm fine with it if you want
[03:22] Murska: or 3e roleplay
[03:23] Shadowcaller: (technically Wren would be standing there as well:P)
[03:23] Murska: (But she never says anything, ever)
[03:24] Happy: (so… lets keep going)
[03:25] Shadowcaller: Arim have been avoiding the road as you left Wind Pine, you spooted your first infernal even so far away from it.
[03:26] Happy: Karen keeps hold of his hand. She has the knife in her left hand.
[03:27] Shadowcaller: Arim just increased the pace as he saw it, apperently a party of the descripion your looking for went to Cerons Keep, some demon hunter trying to stop the demons.
[03:27] Happy: "At least he doesn't need the warning…"
[03:28] Murska: 'We can just head over to the other side of the river if that becomes a problem.'
[03:28] Shadowcaller: "This is crazy…" (Arim.)
[03:29] Happy: "I know…"
[03:29] Shadowcaller: Luna; "Oh yeah? One of them are working it's way around it as we speak." (she means the one going upstreams.)
[03:30] Happy: (can we arrive nao?)
[03:30] Murska: 'That'll take ages.'
[03:30] Murska: 'Or we can go kill that one first.'
[03:31] Shadowcaller: Eventually, Arim and Karen arrives… you notice the group before they see you.
[03:31] Happy: Karen breaks into a run.
[03:32] Shadowcaller: Arim is behind her. Quickly following.
[03:33] Murska: Derek turns and spots them. 'Oh great…'
[03:33] Shadowcaller: (Luna far before they arrive) "They aren't as slow as you think and there might be even more of them coming."
[03:34] Murska: 'Why? As you said, nothing here to destroy anymore.'
[03:34] Murska: and then they arrive?
[03:35] Shadowcaller: (Luna when they arrive.) "What?" She turns in the same direction as Derek. "No…"
[03:37] Happy: Karen stops in front of them, breathing heavily.
[03:38] Shadowcaller: Arim stops right behind her. Luna looks even more furious.
[03:39] Murska: 'More demonbait.' Derek sighs.
[03:40] Happy: "You came into the forest after them?"
[03:41] Shadowcaller: She utters a number of curses in her home language, "Yes, thats exactly what the idiot did."
[03:41] Shadowcaller: "And now you… gah!"
[03:42] Happy: Karen is watching Derek.
[03:42] Murska: 'Yes, that I did.'
[03:43] Happy: "Do you think you can win?"
[03:44] Murska: 'Depends on what you mean with 'win'. I don't think we can kill all of the demons but we can distract them enough that the evacuation will be completed and maybe limit the damages a bit.'
[03:44] Happy: "Without getting killed?"
[03:45] Murska: 'That's the plan.'
[03:46] Shadowcaller: "…he's planning to drop them into holes filled with water."
[03:46] Happy: Karen ignores Luna.
[03:47] Happy: "We heard they were attacking, but we weren't sure if you knew."
[03:49] Murska: 'Well, that's why we headed this way from the meeting spot.'
[03:51] Happy: "I thought maybe that was it." She gives Arim a sidelong look. "Um.. is there anything I can do to help? Or is this only for those who have powers?"
[03:51] Murska: 'I don't think there's much, those things are invulnerable to pretty much anything but water.'
[03:53] Happy: "I guess you want me out of the way then."
[03:53] Murska: 'Yes, if you'd please.'
[03:54] Happy: "Sorry." she mumbles, looking away.
[03:55] Murska: 'Uh. Thanks for the concern, though.'
[03:55] Shadowcaller: Arim sigh "I… you shouldn't have left without a note…"
[03:56] Happy: "I don't want you to get yourself killed."
[03:57] Murska: 'I don't want you to, either. But I have to do anything I can to help people.'
[04:03] Happy: She takes a deep breath, and nods. "Okay."
[04:06] Shadowcaller: #"
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "Please Derek… Cerons keep is gone, there is nothing to save just lure away that road demon and get out."
[04:09] Murska: He raises his arms. 'Fine, we'll get rid of that one on the road and leave.'
[04:12] Shadowcaller: "Good… I can help with luring the demon. I'm best suited for the task right?"
[04:12] Shadowcaller: Arim looks strangely at his sister "You don't need to…"
[04:13] Shadowcaller: "Easy there little brother, sometimes you have to take risks, these might be the only I have left." She smiles sadly.
[04:14] Murska: 'As long as you're careful. They aren't that bright, nor fast.'
[04:15] Shadowcaller: Luna nods, "What about those two?"
[04:16] Shadowcaller: She is pointing at Karen and Arim
[04:18] Murska: 'Start heading back, I guess. I'm staying to look for trouble, Hector might be needed to keep the thing in the hole. I think Wren should also head back, we'll meet up afterwards.'
[04:19] Happy: "If you think that's best"
[04:21] Shadowcaller: Arim takes Karens hand "I suppose we should then."
[04:21] Murska: Here's where I think we need the other two »
[04:22] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, need to sleep anyway.) "Be careful sis…"
[04:23] Happy: Karen starts to walk away with him, and then impusively pulls away and runs to Derek, throwing her arms around him.
[04:23] Shadowcaller: "And you as well Derek."
[04:24] Shadowcaller: Arim looks happy as she dose so, Luna looks suprised.
[04:25] Murska: He is also surprised but hugs her back. 'I'll be back soon.'
[04:27] Happy: "Please do."
[04:28] Happy: She lets him go and returns to Arim's side, looking back at him occasionally as they walk away.
[04:30] Shadowcaller: Arim will stop if needed. "Derek is a good man." He assures her, "He will make it."
[04:31] Murska: Derek looks after them.
[04:32] Happy: "He knows what he's doing," Karen says, mostly to convince herself. "He's been doing this for a long time."

[04:33] Shadowcaller: Arim nods silently.
[04:33] Murska: (There are two kinds of Ithari veterans. Lucky ones, and dead.)
[04:34] Happy: So he pretty much figured it was a suicide career when he took it?
[04:34] Shadowcaller: Luna looks at Derek "Fatherhood everything you expected it to be?"
[04:35] Murska: 'I really have no idea.' He sounds confused. 'Oh well, let's head back towards the road.'
[04:36] Murska: He didn't really think much when he decided on the career. He was a kid and thought demons were to blame for all his misfortunes. Easy prey for recruiters.
[04:36] Shadowcaller: "SUre… why n0t?"
[04:39] Murska: End here
