Derim 18

[20:57] Happy: Or Derek can tell Karen what happened at the manor, but Murska is probably playing Starcraft
[20:57] Aegnor: not yet but soon will be
[20:58] Shadowcaller: So let do that quick.
[20:58] Shadowcaller: *lets
[20:58] Happy: faster faster! rp like the wind!
[20:59] Happy: So… Derek returns from the manor. Karen is waiting to hear that he survived, though the fact that she hasn't suddenly absorbed any demon powers helps
[20:59] Elly: (I'mma start using thoughts moar often, because I'm secretly a bad writer. )
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (I never use thoughts <.<)
[21:00] Aegnor: What happened at the manor anyway?
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (Well… a couple of mercs died, the noble Reval died after attacking an Ithari but would otherwise have been arrested for demon worship.)
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (That is the official repport at least.)
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (A demon managed to escape the manor.)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (A lot of magic things got confiscated.)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (Along with the manor itself.)
[21:03] Shadowcaller: Also:
[21:03] Shadowcaller: General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp säger:
"The ithari are a bunch of overconfident idiots who have been given far too much authority…and I've just lost my taste for violence. Honestly, Ivan, farming would be nice." Hector shrugs and sips his beer. "It was fun working alongside you and the others, but…I just don't want that any more."
[21:04] Elly: ( Oooooh. =p )
[21:04] Aegnor: Yeah, I read that
[21:04] Aegnor: Dunno how it makes sense in any way but eh :P
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Anyway… you arrive at the inn I guess?
[21:05] Aegnor: (Someone good at maths tell me how I can prove that five to the power of any natural number that isn't 1 results in a number which ends in 25?)
[21:05] Happy: (… wikipedia?)
[21:06] Happy: (wiki can prove anythng!)
[21:06] Shadowcaller: (*chat flees from math*)
[21:06] Aegnor: (Uh-huh. My wiki-fu is too weak for that)
[21:06] * ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng#ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng (General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp) has joined the conversation.
[21:06] Happy: Karen and Arim are downstairs eating a meal.
[21:06] Aegnor: so yeah, Derek arrives.
[21:07] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Little…children…terrible jokes…people encouraging them…GAH!)
[21:07] Happy: (eww… human larvae >.< )
[21:07] Shadowcaller: So dose Luna.
[21:08] Happy: Karen goes to hug him. "Are you hurt?"
[21:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Oh…and one of the human larvae also had a fascination in my dinner and was determined to STEAL IT FROM ME!)
[21:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (*rages*)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: Luna goes to check on Arim, and they talk a while, on their own language.
[21:09] Shadowcaller: *in their
[21:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (When is this going on? Same day still?)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[21:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (What sorta time?)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: (It's when Derek returns to the inn… so one day before actually.)
[21:10] Happy: (while Hector is off drinking)
[21:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Wow…continuity is messed up.)
[21:10] Shadowcaller: (While Hector is starting to drink.)
[21:11] Aegnor: Derek hugs her. 'I'm fine. The cultist is dead.'
[21:13] Happy: "Good!"
[21:14] Elly: (There is no continutiy. =p )
[21:14] Aegnor: 'There was some demon, but it got away.'
[21:15] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (No continuity? Cool…then we could randomly go back to a point in time during this week in derim when Wren /doesn't/ hate Hector! :P)
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "Anything happend while we were gone?" Luna says with a smile.
[21:17] Elly: (Yup. But Wren and Hector breaking up is Day Three timeline. =p )
[21:19] Happy: "Wren moved out. And… I went to talk to the demon. About mother."
[21:20] Aegnor: wait a second, what does Derek know about what happened again?
[21:20] Shadowcaller: (About what?)
[21:21] Happy: (Oh… i guess he doesn't know it was Mael)
[21:21] Wolfbane: (I didn't think he knew.)
[21:22] Happy: (no, that revelation came when Luna came to the inn without him)
[21:22] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: brb
[21:22] Happy: so… *cue Derek reaction*
[21:23] Shadowcaller: (I think SC is delaying that reaction.)
[21:24] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (SC thinks SC is delaying something?)
[21:24] Shadowcaller: (Star craft.)
[21:24] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Huh…confusing.)
[21:25] Aegnor: 'Wait… Wren? Why?'
[21:25] Aegnor: 'And what'd you talk to it about?'
[21:26] Shadowcaller: Luna seems curious about this as well.
[21:28] Happy: "Luna told us about the cult leader… Maelstrus remembered the name." She pauses, then says the next part slowly. "It was him. He was the one who took her."
[21:28] Aegnor: 'Wh…' :@
[21:30] Shadowcaller: Luna blinks. "Derek…"
[21:30] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, she dosen't use his nickname now <.<)
[21:30] Aegnor: He grasps his sword.
[21:31] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Hey…if he runs off and kills Mael now…we get continuity errors!)
[21:32] Happy: "No!" Karen tries to grab his sword arm (stupid, I know) "You can't!"
[21:32] Wolfbane: (Not to mention Darek will die <.<)
[21:32] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (And that's a problem? :P)
[21:32] Wolfbane: (Well, you all know that, and I kind of doubt Karen wants her dad to die)
[21:33] Aegnor: (Meh, he's angry enough to survive a little burning light revenge attack)
[21:33] Shadowcaller: 8Especially since Maels death is perfectly justified…)
[21:33] Happy: (I don't think anger works like that :p )
[21:33] Aegnor: He breathes. 'That thing is dead.'
[21:33] Aegnor: (I wouldn't know)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: (But no… he wouldn't survive >.>)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: (I think.)
[21:34] Happy: "Don't make me lose you. Please…"
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "Derek… just calm down. Myabe someone else can do it?" Luna says carefully, looking at him.
[21:36] Aegnor: 'You're right.' He lets go of the sword.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *amybe
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *maybe…
[21:39] Shadowcaller: Luna breathes out, her shoulders drop "There must be something we can do thought… you knew this Karen? All the time?"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "I admire you…" She continues.
[21:40] Happy: (huh? she was there…. )
[21:40] Shadowcaller: (No.)
[21:40] Shadowcaller: (What are you talking of Happy?)
[21:41] Happy: (when Mael admitted that he corrupted women for Reval. Luna was there)
[21:41] Wolfbane: (This was why I wasn't sure if any of them knew it had been Maelly who took her mother or not. He never specifically said her mother at the time.)
[21:42] Happy: (No, but it wasn't hard to put together. Derek and Luna knew that Reval had taken Nora, and Mael admitted that he took women for Reval. :P )
[21:43] Wolfbane: (Well, Reval took women for Maelly and Onyx, but that's splitting hairs.
[21:43] Shadowcaller: (*shrug* It happends to me a few times.)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: (Sometimes you can be really slow.)
[21:46] Happy: "I went to talk to him to learn more. He said she became a Saleen" (or whatever the name was)
[21:46] Wolfbane: (Saalen)
[21:47] Happy: (woohoo! only one letter off!)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "…whats that Karen? Derek?" (Derek should know.)
[21:50] Aegnor: (and what should I know?)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (Well, they made up what demon she had become.)
[21:51] Happy: (posted now in the log)
[21:53] Happy: (picture on the characters page)
[21:56] Aegnor: 'That's a demon. Pretty strong one.' Derek's voice is emotionless and even.
[21:58] Happy: Karen knows him well enough by know to know how good he is at hiding his emotions. She keeps hold of his hand.
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "Well… if we use the necklance…" Luna suggests.
[22:01] Happy: "If we can find her. If we don't have to kill her when we do," Karen says, her voice steady.
[22:02] Happy: (so now what? the party seems pretty divided at the moment)
[22:02] Shadowcaller: (Indeed…)
[22:03] Aegnor: 'Well. We'll think of the ifs when they happen. Right now, we want to stay alive and kill that sultan.'
[22:04] Happy: Karen nods.
[22:04] Shadowcaller: Luna nods as well.
[22:06] Aegnor: 'The Ithari confiscated all the things that cultist had… some of them might be useful for you two.
[22:07] Happy: "Good."
[22:07] Happy: (I think they've gotten totally distracted from the Wren situation)
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (Indeed…)
[22:07] Elly: (It's not as major. =p )
[22:07] Happy: (fast forward to something happening?)
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "We should get a look on it as quickly as possible."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… there might be a situation… one moment.)
[22:10] Shadowcaller: (ugh… so where is everyone right now?)
[22:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Which now is this?)
[22:10] Happy: (wherever we need to be for something to happen? I think we should catch the timelines up first)
[22:10] Wolfbane: (This would be before Hector coming back I think)
[22:11] Wolfbane: (If you're trying to catch up)
[22:11] Happy: (it's a shame to have Elly and Shrimp here and not have them able to participate)
[22:11] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Meh, let's get the timelines sorted out first.
[22:11] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: After all, Karen and co are about half a day out, and most of that is sleeping!
[22:12] Happy: so… the next day, after Hector has broken Wren's heart…
[22:12] Shadowcaller: Yes.
[22:12] Wolfbane: Maelly is likely trying to comfort Wren.
[22:13] Happy: rp it then
[22:13] Wolfbane: (Elly?)
[22:13] Elly: ( Mew? )
[22:13] Happy: i can see why he would… she's the only one who has been nice to him. Well, Hector a little, but with him it's more just not hostile than actively kind
[22:14] Wolfbane: *nods*
[22:14] Wolfbane: (And besides, Hector asked him to)
[22:14] Elly: ( Am grab some food before we get started, )
[22:14] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Although…Mael is under no obligcation to obey Hector, is he?)
[22:15] Aegnor: Mael can more easily drive a wedge between the party members by comforting Wren
[22:15] Wolfbane: (I believe Karen asked him to listen to anyone in the group, and even if he isn't, why wouldn't he help?)
[22:15] Happy: (No, he is ordered to obey Sylvia and Derek, but not any of the others. just not to betray any of their secrets)
[22:17] Wolfbane: (Ah. But he still wants to be on good terms with the others.)
[22:18] Elly: (Whenever you wanna start, Wolf, you horrible, horrible demon.)
[22:18] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (He's a good-ish guy now!)
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (No…)
[22:18] Happy: (and where is Hector going to go now?)
[22:18] Aegnor: (He's just acting)
[22:19] Happy: *agrees with Murska and/or Derek, depending on whether that was IC or OOC*
[22:19] Wolfbane: After Hector leaves, he sighs and goes up the stairs before knocking on her door. "Wren?"
[22:19] Aegnor: both
[22:19] Wolfbane: (He /can't/ act right now)
[22:19] Aegnor: sure he can
[22:19] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Hector is currently in his room, moping.)
[22:19] Elly: There's a muffled thump against the door, but no anwser.
[22:20] Aegnor: He's just convinced himself it's possible for a demon to not be completely evil
[22:20] Wolfbane: (He can't lie, or he burns worse. Every little thing he does wrong simply builds up. Trust me, he's /not/ acting right now)
[22:20] Wolfbane: He tests the doorknob to see if he can open it. "Wren?"
[22:21] Elly: The door's unlocked, and there's still no anwser just a little sob.
[22:21] Happy: (He's just managed to convince himself. *nodnod*)
[22:22] Wolfbane: (Even if he did, if he remembers too much, what he is now /will/ die just by simply being overwhelmed by his past memories)
[22:22] Aegnor: (and then we get him killed)
[22:23] Aegnor: (not that we won't get him killed regardless)
[22:23] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: brb
[22:24] Wolfbane: Maelstrus opens the door, enters and closes it behind him.
[22:24] Happy: (He's an uncompromising demon-slayer! She's his overly emotional daughter! They fight crime!)
[22:24] Elly: And if he isn't quick, gets a pillow to match the one on the floor in the face. "I don't want to deal with you right now, demon." She doesn't bother looking up from her pile of blankets.
[22:25] Aegnor: (Being a demon is inherently evil. )
[22:25] Elly: ( You haven't met Maelly's Preachy friend.
[22:25] Aegnor: (Another one of those who've realized they're evil and are trying to convince themselves it's possible for them not to be.)
[22:26] Wolfbane: He gets hit in the face with the pillow and stands for a moment before picking them both up and setting them on the bed. "I heard what happened…." He keeps his voice quiet.
[22:30] Aegnor: (Now Mael's horrible allergy to pillows reveals itself and he falls down on the ground, dead. Then Wren gets killed by the revenge ability, and then Hector is all sad for a moment before jumping into bed with the other woman.)
[22:30] Elly: "Yeah. Of course you did." She curls up more, wiping her nose on her sleeve and sniffling. "What're you here for? Just want to bother me some more?"
[22:30] Elly: ( Damn sneaky SC. )
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (What? >.>)
[22:33] Wolfbane: "I came to see if there was anything you needed." He pauses, a bit uncomfortable. "Is there any way I can help?"
[22:34] Elly: "I need to be left alone you freaking demon. I need for the lot of your kind to have left me alone in the first place! I don't want to have been dragged over the country and had my heart broken!" Hopefully he's better at dodging the plate.
[22:38] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Tsk tsk. Murska! If that happened, Hector would be sad for at least a week!)
[22:38] Wolfbane: He is, and wonders where she got it from for a moment. "I'm sorry, but it's not /my/ fault you feel as if your heart is broken and when will you realize that demons will always be after you simply because of what you are?"
[22:39] Elly: "What I am… now that was a human fault." Wren mutters, "A lot of things are humanity's fault."
[22:42] Wolfbane: He sighs. "I know you didn't ask for this. /I/ didn't ask to have all my memories removed and to be imprisoned, but, by the Light, it happens. We simply have to endure it."
[22:43] Elly: "Hmph. You having your memories removed was a good thing… for people…"
[22:44] Wolfbane: "I know, but it still means I lost what I was, even if I'm grateful for that."
[22:46] Elly: Wren relaxes a little, rolling onto her front rather than side and stretching out on the bed, on the bedside table there's only a glass left, the mug and plate already pitched across the room. "Maelstrus. Why do demons even bother with the human world if they have thier own?"
[22:47] Wolfbane: He shrugs. "They come here for fun and more power. To try and get things they don't have at home."
[22:48] Happy: (and for your women! bwahahahahah!)
[22:48] Elly: ( O.o )
[22:49] Elly: "Meh… I guess they have the power here, since we don't have the same… ability." Wren shakes her head. "I'm not getting into philosophy with you right now."
[22:50] Wolfbane: He smiles slightly. "Thanks. I'd rather not have to start spewing out the Faith of the Burning Light to you yet. I may follow it, but I won't preach it."
[22:51] Aegnor: (You're telling me he converted overnight to believe that he's inferior to all humans and angels who are the perfect beings?)
[22:51] Elly: "Ha. Your friend there doesn't seem to follow the same inhibitions about it." Wren lies still, "I don't know what to do…"
[22:53] Wolfbane: (he doesn't follow it completely yet)
[22:55] Wolfbane: he shrugs. "I wouldn't know. Talk about it? Cry more to let it all out? I don't know, I'm new to this. I wouldn't know what to should do."
[22:57] Elly: "Nothing to talk about… I was the new girl… He already knew someone that he's met again, now…" Wren breaks off, droning down into the mumbles and starting the tears up again. "Do demons just not feel anything?!"
[22:58] Wolfbane: He considers the question for a while. "We do, but I think many are just more… raw in their emotions. I just lack the experience to feel as much as you do."
[23:01] Elly: "Experince… Emotions are something you have. Feel new depths of them, maybe… but you've always had them… for humans at least. I don't know how you fre-… demons… work."
[23:04] Wolfbane: "I simply haven't had much cause to feel too much. I understand, and eventually feel more than a little, but you can't expect me to have every emotion you have if I'm technically only a few weeks old."
[23:05] Elly: Wren shakes her head, "Nevermind. I said I wasn't going to talk to you about it."
[23:05] Wolfbane: He nods. "Then what /do/ you want to talk about?"
[23:06] Elly: "Nothing." She shudders under the blankets with a heavy breath, then lies quietly.
[23:07] Wolfbane: He sighs and picks up the pieces of the plate and the broken mug from earlier, tossing them into the trash. "Do you need me to get you anything before I go?"
[23:08] Elly: She mumbles, then rolls to look at him with red lined eyes and a trail of tears, "Where are you going?"
[23:09] Wolfbane: "I was going to go downstairs to give you some time alone. Do you want me to stay up here?"
[23:10] Elly: "…just stay here and shut up, would you?" She looks up at him sadly, eyes watering.
[23:11] Wolfbane: He nods and does so, sitting in a chair near the bed.
[23:12] Elly: She doesn't say anything more, just lies there silently and tries to take his hand a while later before falling asleep.
[23:13] Wolfbane: He let her take his hand, though he's obviously at odds with what to do.
[23:14] Elly: (And unless SC has anything devious, that's scene.)
[23:15] Shadowcaller: (I do actually <.<) But let's do Hector first? Or someone else?
[23:15] Wolfbane: (and I have to get some food)
[23:15] Happy: (suddenly Maelly opens his mouth wider than possible and bites off Wren's head)
[23:15] Elly: ( O.o )
[23:15] Elly: ( Stupid demons… *mumblegrumble* )
[23:23] Elly: ( ♫♪ )
[23:24] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (weird…music symbol…thingy.)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (So, I have two things for you, Wren/Mael or Hector.)
[23:26] Happy: Hector, since Wolfy is afk
[23:27] Shadowcaller: Right, so I suppose Hector will go to the masked bard eventually?
[23:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Yup.
[23:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He does.
[23:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: After spending pretty much all day skulking around his room…
[23:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He looks around for any sign of Raea, once he enters.
[23:30] Shadowcaller: He can see her sitting at a table all alone, sipping a drink he suspects to be water.
[23:30] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector walks over and sits down. "Hi…"
[23:32] Shadowcaller: "…you look devasted. I'm so sorry Hector, it's all my fault, I should have controlled myself better… I shouldn't hhave drunk all tha beer… oh creator… can you ever forgive me?"
[23:34] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Raea…please…stop that. If it had just been what happened when we were both drunk, well, it wouldn't be half as bad. This isn't you fault. It's my fault for…well…realising that I love you, I suppose."
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "But you loved Wren too didn't you?" Raea looks up at Hector, she looks rather bleak.
[23:36] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…but I don't know if she can ever love me now."
[23:36] Happy: (so introduce Raea and Wren… see if they can get along and share… )
[23:37] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Biit too late for that.)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: (Same deal with Cessie and Alyrria eh?)
[23:38] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (If he'd found some way to do that without one of them going nuts at him first…then it might've worked. :P)
[23:39] Wolfbane: (back)
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "ANd i made you take that choice…"
[23:40] Aegnor: (Heh.)
[23:40] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "What, talking to her? There was no choice there. I couldn't lie to her, or try and make it sound better than it is. I've screwed up horribly. She deserved to know the truth."
[23:40] Shadowcaller: (Thought Aegnor didn't achive that one;))
[23:41] Shadowcaller: "Yes, but I was the one that took you to bed wasn't it? The one that sat in your lap…"
[23:42] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "We were both drunk, Raea! Neither of us acted sensibly."
[23:43] Happy: (Hector you fool! You're supposed to say 'no, you didn't cause it. i wanted you too and you were irresistable')
[23:43] Shadowcaller: She sigh. "I guess, but… I really need to see her Hector, I'm a coward to hide here like this."
[23:46] Aegnor: (Wheeere is the Warcraft final narration? v.v9
[23:46] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well, that's going to have to wait for a little while yet. I'll try and talk to her tomorrow. Maybe…maybe with both of you there…" Rather suddenly, he gets up and walks round, then puts his arms around her and his head on her shoulder, "I feel horrible…she probably won't even talk to me! Just…please…tell me this isn't my fault."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: (Oh… right…)
[23:47] Happy: *glomps Murska* (do you want big chat? or too distracting?)
[23:47] Aegnor: (I won't pay attention anyway, too tired)
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "It isn't your fault Hector, you didn't want this remember?"
[23:50] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, I'm pathetic. After what I went through with Wren, I think even that early on in this madness…I'd lost whatever it was that made me a mercenary. And now that look at me, falling in love with two women…I've already broken her heart…I don't want to do that to yours. It was so painful, hearing her yelling at me to get out…"
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "I understand Hector… similar things have happend to me when I gave a guy wrong signals. It's hard, very hard…"
[23:54] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…but the old me could deal with it. Hell, the old me wouldn't have fallen in love at all! The old me insulted her and called her "spineless." That's practically my pet name for her now! Well…it was."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: Raea takes his hand, sqeezing it "If there is anything I can do…"
[23:56] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yes. There is. I don't want to be alone tonight…"
[23:56] Shadowcaller: She nods slowly "I can keep you company… thats the least I can do after what happend."
[23:57] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Thankyou." He slips back into his own seat and smiles at her. "I'm sorry, Raea, this can't be pleasant for you either…"
[23:58] Shadowcaller: She sigh and looks down the table "It hasen't… but it can't be anything like how you feel Hector…"
[00:00] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well, maybe we can make the rest of the evening a bit better? I…I think I've said everything I need to…for now. Tomorrow, I'll try and persuade her to meet you…so let's talk about something else for now."
[00:01] Shadowcaller: Raea nods slowly "Okay… if you feel so."
[00:02] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "If we talk about it all evening until we go to sleep, we'll both feel terrible. Have you done any interesting jobs recently?"
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Except the one with demons in the manor?" She smiles slightly. "Well… been around the world you could say."
[00:04] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Around the world? Been that busy, has it? A few new conflicts must've flared up shortly after I started this demon crap."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "All the way down to Erathia Hector and then up to Veron."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Quite the travel."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Down there, there are cults everywhere, they are as accepted as something normal."
[00:06] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "And let me guess, the cults are always bickering with each other?"
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Mhm… something like that."
[00:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Sounds like fun. Any interesting missions, or was it just the usual?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Well… I did escort a priestess of Bast if you know what that is. I suppose that would count as intresting."
[00:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Priestess of Bast…no, no I don't know what that is. Go on, explain."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "They are a major cult down there."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Bast is a demon sultan or sultaness… female if you catch my drift."
[00:11] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Oh, I see…another one."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, well apperently she was looking for a child that had gone missing."
[00:12] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "…a child?"
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I was the only one that could talk to her thought. Apperently they don't like males that much."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "The 'child' had been missing for about 23 years, so I guess it wasn't much of a child anymore."
[00:15] Happy: (and the threads draw us together again….)
[00:16] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Huh. What's wrong with males? A child missing for 23 years, huh…did you find the child?"
(I'm supposed to recognise who the child is, aren't I?)
[00:16] Aegnor: (I say we figure out which of us is the Ta'Veren and shoot him)
[00:17] Aegnor: (Also, Happy, someone almost used you to kill me in Zombies »)
[00:17] Happy: (noes! not mah dad!)#
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "Nope, she didn't find it. Said she found some clues but I didn't hear much more from her."
[00:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "How odd." Hector moves his chair round so he's next to Raea. "This is all so weird…" he says quietly. "I can barely take my eyes off you…"
[00:21] Elly: ( O.o She's a witch! )
[00:22] Shadowcaller: She smiles slightly "I hard that one before thought."
[00:22] Shadowcaller: *heard
[00:22] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "But did anyone else really mean it? I'm not some young newbie mistaking lust for love."
[00:26] Shadowcaller: She pats him in the back "I know you aren't Hector… your a big boy after all, otherwise you wouldn't have gone freelance."
[00:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, the look on a newbie just starting out was always quite amusing…makes you think back to your first job…"
[00:29] Shadowcaller: "What was yours?" Raea says with a smile.
[00:31] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Nothing much. I was just used as part of a small scouting group for some caravan convoy. They had a few mercenaries guarding the convoy itself, but they were worried about ambushes. The mercs couldn't be everywhere at once. So we were to scout around, locate any ambushes, warn the convoy, and set up a counter-ambush."
[00:32] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector chuckles, "Luckily the convoy was never attacked. We got through without any trouble…but our employer shaved a little bit off our payment, claiming that we were paid to do a job, and we never actually did it."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: SHe chuckles "Sounds like the dirtbags we work for every day."
[00:33] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Of course. Still the hours are flexible…and it's always satisfying working with an army, letting them see you up and fresh as a daisy when they're still stumbling out of their tents."
[00:36] Shadowcaller: "Tell me about it… that priestess sleept to noon every day, we missed hours every day. And if any of the guys just gave her the wrong kind of gaze, she got really crazy."
[00:37] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "What, sort of like this?" Hector's lowers his gaze to Raea' chest, then laughs and puts an arm round her shoulders, "Heh, I just imagined you dressed as a priestess…"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "Oh really?" Raea smiles widely "So how do I look in that dress then?"
[00:41] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Hmm…I think your usual merc outfit looks better actually. In priestess robes…you look to vulnerable."
[00:42] Shadowcaller: "Me vulnerable?" She gives Hector a light punch on his shoulder.
[00:43] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, exactly. It doesn't suit you."
[00:44] Elly: Test?
[00:44] Shadowcaller: ..
[00:44] Shadowcaller: Here
[00:44] Elly: @.@
[00:45] Elly: Is this one still alive, or just not telling me that it crashed?
[00:45] Wolfbane: (This chat is for Hector >.>)
[00:45] Elly: (…but we have all the same people in the other chat… )
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "Nope, it dosen't. And you don't go well in farmer clothes either." Raea replies.
[00:46] Wolfbane: (yes, one is for Hector, the other for Maelly and Wren so we do them at the same time)
[00:46] Elly: ( @.@ )
[00:46] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (I think it's to keep the two separate so it's easier to put on demons thingumabob?)
[00:46] Shadowcaller: (Mhm.)
[00:47] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I don't? Damn. So much for the farm plan then…"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Raea laughs "Then what kind of future were you planning?"
[00:49] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Oh, just settling down somewhere and owning a little farm. Nice and quiet, exactly the sort of thing you'd hate." He grins at her.
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "I thought you hated them too?"
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "All Ivan's talk of fat children…"
[00:52] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Fat children? Me? I'd settle down, but I wouldn't expect any kids to. I'd train them, get them to help out with the manual labour…having someone like you around would give me a perfect training partner to keep me in shape just in case I never need to dig out my bow and use it."
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "I think he meant all children are fat when they are born… so they are healthy."
[00:55] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, they can be quite scrawny little things too." Hector smiles and rubs her shoulder. "With Wren, I'd end up with a couple of cowardly little sons and daughters…with you they'd come out and probably immediately punch a dog, or something."
[00:55] Happy: (so they should all live together so the kids can learn from one another!)
[00:56] Elly: (Ouch. Comparing to your Ex. )
[00:56] Elly: ( =p )
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "With me? Now wouldn't that be a sight…"
[00:57] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "It would be…"
[00:57] Wolfbane: (Gee, what did Wren see in the guy in the first place? <.<)
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "…your imagine that right now aren't you?"
[00:59] Shadowcaller: (Hehe… whats wrong with Hector?
)
[00:59] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Of course not!"
[00:59] Shadowcaller: (Except all the bad things he have done:P)
[00:59] Happy: (Hector's the most realistic character in the game.)
[00:59] Happy: (I like him. ooc)
[01:00] Shadowcaller: (really? You think my characters are unrealistic?) >.>
[01:00] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (He does seem to be developing a habit of doing the worst thing possible in every conversation though. And the demons all pick on him. Poor ol' Hector)
[01:01] Happy: (No, not that others are unrealistic, just that Hector is the most so)
[01:01] Happy: (It's the pub test. I can picture going out and meeting a mundane version of someone like Hector in the pub down the corner easier than I can any of the others.)
[01:02] Elly: (That's probably because besides Arim, the rest of them wouldn't be found in apub. =p )
[01:03] Shadowcaller: She smacks him playfully. "Well, thats good for you."
[01:04] Happy: (:P substitute any common type place - the grocery store, the dog park, the train station…. )
[01:04] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Hey!" He smacks her back, gently. "I'm in enough trouble as it is without you acting all playful!"
[01:06] Shadowcaller: "Just trying to lighten the mood a bit…" She smiles again.
[01:06] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Sorry, sorry. I really should just lighten up…enjoy the evening…enjoy the company…"
[01:07] Wolfbane: brb
[01:08] Shadowcaller: "Not as easy as it sounds… you feel like the world is going to end tomorrow right?"
[01:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "No…I feel like whatever I do, one of you is going to hate me. Still, it could be worse…" He leans against her shoulder, sighing happily as he focuses on the positives…briefly.
[01:11] Shadowcaller: "Hopefully you can't get me to hate you, would feel bad about that…" She slowly runs her fingers throught his hair.
[01:12] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Hey, you got any more merc work planned for the near future?"
[01:12] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Random topic change!
[01:12] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: :P
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "Uh… well, we were going to go up to Veron now, after we left the priestess."
[01:15] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "What? I'm just asking. Raea, before yesterday…it was months since I last saw you! I just want to catch up a bit…"
[01:17] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… that was before all this Hector… plans might have changed now."
[01:18] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah, I suppose…but whatever happens, you'd best be careful!"
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "Don't worry Hector, I can take care of myself. I might not have any of your fancy powers… but I'm still a fighter."
[01:21] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Pfft, fancy powers! I got by fine without them in most missions."
[01:23] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, but it's better then don't have any right?"
[01:24] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I suppose. So…if you had a fancy power, what would it be, hmm?"
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Raea chuckles "I wouldn't go along with magic I think."
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "I'm just ordrinary me."
[01:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Ordinary? Hardly!" Hector places a hand on her arm, "No /ordinary/ woman has arms like these!"
[01:29] Shadowcaller: Raea blushes "Err… well, I kind of need it for the work."
[01:30] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "And? Female mercenaries aren't exactly common."
[01:30] Shadowcaller: "You tell me… I'm reminded of it very day."
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Thats why I only travel with people I trust, you never know what might happend…"
[01:33] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…I suppose it must be a little bit worrying at times, surrounded by so many men…and not all of them are as sensible as Ivan."
[01:35] *
Aegnor has left the conversation.
[01:41] Shadowcaller: …
[01:41] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: ?
[01:42] Shadowcaller: (Just… ugh, wait a moment.)
[01:42] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Yeah, I'm reading the other one…)
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "You get used to it eventually. Thought you never want to wear any other thing then armor again."
[01:50] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "That bad? You know, I never realised."
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "Eh… I might be over playing this a bit."
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "But you know the drill."
[01:51] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Not really. I spent far much time just talking to you guys. The rest were just mooks, fit for nothing more than having orders barked at."
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "Hey, it was not like you put any effort in knowing any of them."
[01:53] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well, I know enough about them to know that none of them were really worth knowing."
[01:56] Shadowcaller: "If you think so… and we all know how hard your opinion is to change." Raea grins
[01:58] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well, Raea, what few other women there were…none of them could hold a candle to you…and well, the ones who'd make the sort of rude comments about you…they're only fit for use as cannon fodder."
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "Wait… they told things about me behind my back?"
[01:59] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Nothing too bad, but a few of them did like to…speculate."
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "…speculate?"
[02:01] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "There were always a few who were convinced that you'd sleep with pretty much anyone. As a result, they generally tried to pull off impressive stunts and ended up dying stupidly. You helped keep the idiot merc population down."
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "They did what?! I thought I was friend with most of the girls…"
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Raea seems rather shocked.
[02:04] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "The men, I mean."
(Just re-read it and realised how unclear that was.)
[02:04] Elly: ( Dummy. Telling her the rumours.)
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "Oh, the guys?… they really thought that?"
[02:06] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah, bunch of fools. Really, it was almost embarassing to watch at times!"
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Dear creator…"
[02:07] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, don't let it bother you. Boys will be boys."
[02:08] Shadowcaller: "But the girls didn't say anything about me right?"
[02:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "No, no, as far as I know you were quite popular among them. Maybe you had the most muscles, or something."
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "Always with the muscles… guess I really am a freak of nature." Raea says in a good-hearted tone.
[02:13] Shadowcaller: (Shrimp fell asleep?)
[02:13] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Nope.)
[02:14] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Just distracted for a moment)
[02:14] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Hmm…No…not a freak. Unusual, yes, attractive, yes, not freaky."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: "Had Wren any muscles?… no sorry, we shouldn't talk about her."
[02:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Not really, no. She's beautiful in her own way. I don't something simple like that. Besides…if I can get the two of you to meet…perhaps knowing a bit about each other would help."
[02:20] Elly: ( *thwaps* Just get on with it! )
[02:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Hmm? Ow! Hey! Wassat for?)
[02:22] Shadowcaller: "As long as it dosen't disturb you…"
[02:22] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I don't know." Hector yawns, "It's getting late. Can we go to sleep?"
[02:24] Shadowcaller: (Hmm… dose this have to do with that your player is tired?) "Sure… I'm a bit tried as well… are you going to buy a room or…?"
[02:25] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Nope. I just think the conversation is getting a wee bit too repetitive, and that we might as well end the scene.)
"Yeah, sure. Don't feel like you have to head up now. I just…need to sleep on it and think some more about this."
[02:26] Shadowcaller: She nods "Yeah… I got my own room. I hope you can think more clearly tomorrow."
[02:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Maybe…I don't know. Could I sleep in your room, actually? I just…I want to be around one of you…"
[02:28] Shadowcaller: "Well… if you want. I can't say I mind…" She smiles again.
[02:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah, that'd be nice…"
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "COme then, lets go to bed…"
[02:29] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector nods and heads up. Pretty much as soon as he's on a bed, he's out like a light.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: He dose.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: And I guess Raea would fall asleep with him eventually.
