Derim 10

[22:16] General Shrimp: (Dum de dum…we're all still at the inn? Righto…)
Guess what Hector is doing! He's…just messing about with his heal-y thingy again.
…yeah.
[22:19] Shadowcaller: Luna enters the inn, slaming the door open. She looks very determined as she looks around the inn, what dose she see?
[22:20] General Shrimp: Well…that makes Hector jump "Wha-?" Seeing who it is, he shuts up, having no idea what she's doing.
[22:20] Elly: Wren is face down asleep on her arms. =p
[22:21] Wolfbane: Maelstrus had his eyes closed, but he looks up at the door slamming. He still looks human.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: (Karen?)
[22:24] Happy: Karen jumps to her feet, looking scared. "What happened?"
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "We went to that manor…"
[22:24] Shadowcaller: She sits down at the nearest table "Derek should be here soon, let me explain."
[22:25] Shadowcaller: Suddenly Luna seems to change her mind about the chair and stands up again.
[22:26] General Shrimp: "Luna…what's got you on edge?"
[22:27] Wolfbane: (Have Luna and Maelly even met?)
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (He have seen her a few times, but I doubt he hardly knows her name, and not her real one either.)
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (A few times meaning, like one time:P)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (She have seen him thought.)
[22:31] Shadowcaller: (I just assume everyone goes closer to her…) She takes a deep breath and starts again "So we went to the manor and managed to get in… no thats not important. We encountered this noble and interrogationated him-"
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Arim frowns "What?!"
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "Hey, he was evil!"
[22:32] General Shrimp: "…he was evil? How did you know?"
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "So we asked a few questions and I'm sure he lied all the time…"
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "COming to that."
[22:32] General Shrimp: "Sorry, sorry."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "We left later on and then went to bed."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "But suddenly I was woken up by Derek, he had some kind of nightmare…."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "It turns out, he had already seen that guy in the vision that angel dragon-thing gave to him."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "He was the one that turned Nora… the cult leader he called him."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "He put that necklance around your…" She glances at Karen "…Mother."
[22:35] Happy: "Derek… ?"
[22:35] Happy: "What is he doing?"
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "He is talking with those demon hunters… his gang, trying to make them arrest him."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "The guys name was Reval something, he should still be inside the manor."
[22:38] Happy: "So he's not doing anything rash?"
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "Derek isn't stupid Karen, he knows what he's doing."
[22:40] Happy: Karen sinks back into a chair, shaking.
[22:40] Shadowcaller: Luna turns to Hector "Those pals of yours are protecting a freak Hector."
[22:43] General Shrimp: "That…I see…" Hector gets up slowly and puts his healing thingy down. "They are not aware of this, of course. I wish you'd waited." He grabs his bottle of beer, holds it up…empty. In anger he smashes it against a table. "AND WHAT NOW? If Derek's friends march over there today, what happens? MY FRIENDS WILL BE FOUND IN THE EMPLOYMENT OF A DEMON WORSHIPPER!"
[22:44] General Shrimp: "You couldn't wait…you couldn't give me a chance to talk to them FIRST!"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: Luna stands back, a bit shocked "…err… Derek didn't want to wait…"
[22:45] Wolfbane: Maelstrus shifts uncomfortably, an odd look over his face, but it vanishes quickly enough.
[22:47] General Shrimp: "Yeah, great. They don't have a clue! They're just mercenaries! What happens if they get thrown in jail, huh? What then?"
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "I don't okay? I don't know all your fancy laws!"
[22:47] Shadowcaller: *don't know
[22:48] General Shrimp: "NEITHER DO I! I have no idea what charges they might face for being in the employment of some demon-nut! If the Ithari are as bad as they seem at times, they probably won't even consider that my friends are innocent!"
[22:49] Happy: Karen reaches for Arim.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: He is there for her. He remains very stotic, putting a hand on her shoulder and carefully pulls her a bit closer.
[22:52] Wolfbane: Maelstrus stands and heads for the bar, not wanting anything to do with the current conversation, or at least looking so.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "…I don't know what to tell you Hector? Okay? Is that the answer you wanted? I didn't think of it. Just talk to them or something… Derek should be on his way."
[22:53] General Shrimp: "I hope so." Unfortunately that wonderful wish a certain person made that's pretty much forcing Hector to get along with Derek means this next bit is going to be…very awkward.
[22:53] General Shrimp: It'll probably look quite odd when Hector starts trying to discuss things nicely.
[22:57] Shadowcaller: (Too bad he will have both Luna and Karen against him if he disscuss with Derek now <.<)
[22:57] Shadowcaller: (Or well… I think Luna would remain fairly neutral as she's quite invidualistic, unless Hector was really on.)
[22:58] General Shrimp: (More conflict! Or at least, there would be, if it wasn't for that damn wish…)
[22:58] General Shrimp: (Funny how it's always poor old Hector who seems to be the one threatening to go his separate way from the party)
[22:59] Happy: (Is Hector going to go and talk to his friends?)
[22:59] General Shrimp: (I dunno…probably not…he still doesn't want to go near the damn noble guy.)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Even if it is to warn them?)
[23:04] General Shrimp: (Probably? Unfortunately it kind of depends on what Derek says…)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: (Is wren going to say anything? >.>)
[23:08] Shadowcaller: Arim: "They are going to take him…" (to Karen.)
[23:09] Happy: "What?"
[23:09] Elly: (Elly is busy being sick again. :{ *will say something* )
[23:09] Happy: (:( )
[23:09] Shadowcaller: (Oh…:()
[23:09] General Shrimp: (Aww…*hugs Elly*)
[23:10] Happy: (Karen is confused. doesn't understand what Arim is saying.)
[23:10] Elly: "Hector… Do you want to go and tell them right now?"
[23:10] Shadowcaller: (He meant they are going to take the noble guy.)
[23:11] General Shrimp: "I…I don't know. Maybe I can persuade Derek to wait a few days, since the mercs are supposed to meet me. I don't want to walk straight into any traps our noble friend may have there…"
[23:11] Elly: "It might not matter if you can get Derek to go along… If he's already told the other hunters…"
[23:14] General Shrimp: …
"But what is the noble has something planned?"
[23:15] Elly: "Luna and Derek managed to get in to question him, I'm fairly sure you could manage to talk to your buddies at the gate, or whereever…"
[23:16] General Shrimp: "I'm just worried he's got something planned…I'd ask you to come with me, but…"
[23:19] Happy: Karen suddenly looks up. "He asked for you specifically. You're in more danger than any of us."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "yeah, we should wait for Derek." Luna says "Then we can decide, or you could go to Derek, that works too."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Arim: "That… creep Karen, he will pay for what he did and throught him we might find out…"
[23:21] General Shrimp: (Yeah! Let's all wait for the guy who isn't here and by the time he is I'll probably have fallen asleep and…timezones and weird sleeping patterns suck.)
[23:24] Wolfbane: (sorry someone was at my door)
[23:24] Happy: "Maelstrus? Do you know anything about this?"
[23:24] Elly: ( Oh? Who? )
[23:25] General Shrimp: (…I'm already struggling to keep my eyes open and I feel a headache coming on. Sorry guys, but I'm thinking I should go to sleep…before this becomes a proper headache. :()
[23:25] Wolfbane: "Of the cultist?"
[23:26] General Shrimp: (G'night folks. I might be on later…probably not.)
[23:26] *** General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp has left the conversation.
[23:26] Happy: "Yes."
[23:27] Wolfbane: "The name is familiar. I think I dealt with him before I was imprisoned."
[23:29] Wolfbane: "And I think he set me up."
[23:29] Happy: "What would he want with Hector?"
[23:31] Wolfbane: "I do not. What I /do/ know is that most of the current situation is the man's fault."
[23:32] Wolfbane: I do not know*
[23:32] Happy: "Tell us everything."
[23:33] Wolfbane: "I am not learned well enough in Creation to tell you everything." (Walked into that one. :P)
[23:34] Happy: Karen just glares at him.
[23:35] Shadowcaller: Luna looks at Maelly curiously "So the demon is a wise guy eh?"
[23:35] Wolfbane: "Please, excuse my snarky attitude, but in my situation you learn to get your laughs when you can. Give me a moment to collect my shattered memories."
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Really? Laughs? What kind of demon are you anyway?"
[23:37] Wolfbane: "A Baelron no, but I was a Deciever. Now, please, this is hard enough as is."
[23:37] Wolfbane: now*
[23:38] Shadowcaller: "I can't say I pity you even a little bit. Your immortal aren't you? And yet you whine like a baby."
[23:48] Happy: ..
[23:49] Wolfbane: (sorry, clarifying a few things with SC)
[23:49] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[23:53] Wolfbane: "Before I was imprisoned, it seems I had helped him into power. As tribute to my lord, and on advice of someone else, he was able to corrupt several women. One was Mithra, the demoness I told you about before. I was also apparently set up because it turns out one of the women had been a servant of Bast. I remember paying the man with a black diamond, but I don't know what he'd be doing /here./"
[23:54] Happy: "You…."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: Luna seems pretty disturbed by this.
[23:55] Elly: ( *epicfacepalm*)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: Arim just glares hatefully at Maelly.
[23:56] Happy: "What greater purpose were you serving then?" Karen spits out.
[23:57] Wolfbane: "I don't know. And I don't want to." He says calmly.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "What has Bast to do with this?…" Luna ask, her voice devoided of emotion.
[23:59] Happy: She slaps him across the face.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: Luna dosen't flitch as Karen slaps him.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: She just looks at Maelly coldly.
[00:01] Wolfbane: Niether does Maelstrus. "A priestess of Bast had been one of the girls without my knowledge apparently. Her servants caught up, tortured me for a few months, then imprisoned what I used to be." He looks at them. "Get this straight, whatever entered that prison is /not/ what came out. I am someone else, even if the body is the same."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: (sec… continue >.>)
[00:07] Happy: "So you think you aren't responsible for the acts you did then?"
[00:08] Wolfbane: "I know I am, for the light burns even more. Some part of me is still the thing from before, but my mind isn't. But somehow I doubt you understand that, or want to."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "I don't even think you deserve to be redeemed."
[00:16] Wolfbane: He shurgs. "Maybe I don't, maybe I do. But its a choice only the Burning Light makes."
[00:16] Happy: "And how will it know when you are 'redeemed'?"
[00:18] Wolfbane: "From what I gathered from going to the church, it tests me periodically. If I fail, I die."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "Death is not good enough for you… but I wouldn't want you to continue existing either."
[00:21] Wolfbane: He doesn't reply, obviously tired of throwing around insults.
[00:23] Happy: "Who is in charge of the church?"
[00:24] Wolfbane: "Bhaal."
[00:25] Wolfbane: "He's another demon sultan."
[00:25] Happy: "Always demons… we can't escape them.."
[00:26] Shadowcaller: "How many girls did you take?"
[00:27] Wolfbane: "Six that I can remember."
[00:27] Happy: "So the more you remember your past, the more the burning light punishes you for it?"
[00:27] Wolfbane: "If I feel guilt over it, yes."
[00:28] Wolfbane: "But then I'd also likely become more like I was before. At least this way you know what to expect of me."
[00:29] Shadowcaller: "Your obviously not feeling guilty enough as you still can talk to us."
[00:31] Wolfbane: "I /do/ feel guilty, but as I said, that thing is a different person than I am now. I know it used to be me, and for that I can't help but burn, but that isn't me any longer."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Whatever, you forced collars around those girls necks huh? What did you need them for?"
[00:32] Elly: "He doesn't know that. And unless you want the demon who did that back, stop trying to get him to remember."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Luna gives Wrena glare "Stop defending this ass-hole."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: *wren a
[00:33] Elly: "You hate demons so much, you're becoming one." Wren gets up from the table, and heads out the door.
[00:34] Wolfbane: "Wren, I will answer because I /do/ know that much. They were supposed to lead my lord's armies. The only one that I know what happened to though is Mithra."
[00:37] Happy: /You've probably convinced yourself of that 'I was a different person' crap, but you haven't fooled me./
[00:38] Shadowcaller: As Wren leaves Luna sits down, obviously angered "I can't belive her! How can she be so stupid!"
[00:39] Wolfbane: /Choose what you believe, at least the Light knows I speak truth/
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Arim remains quiet, a bit uncomfortable by the conflicts.
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Sylvia is in her room, most likely sleeping again.
[00:40] Happy: /Stay out of my sight as much as you can./
[00:41] Happy: She goes to Arim. "Let's go upstairs."
[00:41] Wolfbane: /I will try best as I can./
[00:41] Shadowcaller: He nods "Yeah… leveryone should just calm down now."
[00:41] Shadowcaller: *everyone
[00:42] Shadowcaller: Luna is still muttering about how Mael is bad and how stupid Wren is.
