Exodus - 09

Aegnor sanoo:
anyway, Cessie wakes up slowly, and is in pain. The cuts all over her body have stopped bleeding but aren't very nice-looking either, they're quite dirty and covered in dried blood. Not to mention all her muscles ache.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
"My back…" She says out loud
The pain is all over her, she should have washed herself last night. Now all her wounds were infected or something
"Hello?"
Aegnor sanoo:
/Oh, you're awake./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
She needed to clean her wounds…
/How long did I sleep?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/I don't really know… not very long?/
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Ugh…/
Aegnor sanoo:
(This by the girl who's been standing there for who knows how long. )
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/It hurts so much…/
Aegnor sanoo:
/I'm sorry. Is there nothing to be done?/
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/I must clean the wounds I think, I never realized that they could be infected…/
Cessie slowly raises up from the floor
Aegnor sanoo:
Which is quite difficult, in fact.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
(yeah, thats why she do it slowly.)
"Agh!"
"I can hardly move."
/I don't know how I can go on like this…/
Aegnor sanoo:
/But… you can't go back, the spell could attack you again./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/At least I have recovered my spells hopefully./
She attempts to summon a air elemental
Aegnor sanoo:
I'd assume she manages, unless it requires some kind of a tribal dance.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
No!
Darn natives…
/Well, thats good news at least./
Aegnor sanoo:
/Ooh./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/What?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/That's an air elemental isn't it? I read about those…/
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Yes I suppose it is, I learned it of a wand actually… my speciality is fire./
/What was yours?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/I… don't know./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Its so sad with you being dead and all… I can't imagine how you feel./
Aegnor sanoo:
/I don't feel… dead. It's odd. I can 'feel' the building, and the lake, and even the storm./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Well, you have no company, you are all alone in here./
Aegnor sanoo:
She falls silent.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/That must be… so horrible for you,/
/Trapped… no where to go, all alone…/
Aegnor sanoo:
(You're not helping! )
Shadowcaller sanoo:
(Well, its more of her own feelings…)
(How she felt once.)
Aegnor sanoo:
/Time… I know it's been long, but it feels like it happened just a moment ago./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Your doned to the artifact right?/
*bonded
Aegnor sanoo:
/Yes. Stuck…/
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/What would happend if I released you? You would… die?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/Well, I haven't ever been released so I wouldn't know./
With a slightly snarky tone.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
She is too tired to argue /Okay, tell me everything you know about that thing. I must be able to destroy ot at least manipulate it somehow./
*or
Aegnor sanoo:
/It's an artifact infused with first large amounts of elemental magic, especially water, and then given a simple 'mind'. It's powerful, it can move the earth and create large amounts of water, it seems to have some power of wind aswell, seeing the duststorm but I haven't seen any evidence of fire-magic./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Okay… it seemed to react hostile to my fire elemental, maybe that means something?/
/When it consumed you, what were you attempting to do? How did you come by this house?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/Back then it was a room. It was just like you see it, it got my attention since the carvings and the gold was still there, unlike everywhere else./
/When I entered, I saw this jewel and sensed it…/
/I took it from the pedestal./ She still sounds ashamed. /I couldn't resist… just a tiny bit of energy to see what it was and what it would do./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Sounds like something I would have done…/
/I guess I was lucky you came first./ She says sarcastically /Otherwise we would have had changed roles./
Hope sanoo:
(ouch!)
Shadowcaller sanoo:
(I don't think thats insulting >.>)
Aegnor sanoo:
/But how could I be so stupid? I was going to help him. I was going to be…/ She quietens again.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/It dosen't matter, whats done is done and we can't change that I'm afraid./
Aegnor sanoo:
(God. Allergy attack. I'm going to shower, maybe that'll help.)
(Someone keep this going if you want.)
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/I don't think I can use my energy on the artifact, then we would have two frozen persons standing here../
Hope sanoo:
/At least I wouldn't be alone./ But Cessie can sense that Saranna is trying to make a feeble joke, and not a serious suggestion.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Indeed…/ She smiles sadly.
/Maybe I can just throw it against the floor?/
Hope sanoo:
/I can honestly say I never tried that./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
Cessie looks at the artifact in Saranna's frozen hand, how it pulses with magic /I don't want you to die thought. And I'm afraid you might if the artifact breaks./
/I don't know what to do here…/
/you could pick it up without harm right?/
Hope sanoo:
/If I don't die, then what? I don't think I can exactly live either./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Hmm…/
/You could pick it up without being consumed right?/
/The artifact./
Hope sanoo:
/I don't remember… it all happened so fast./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/So I can't be even sure to touch it?/
/This is not good…/
/Any other way I can effect it?/
Hope sanoo:
(I don't know…)
Aegnor sanoo:
(back)
(Hm…)
/I don't know… I can't really communicate with it's mind from the inside. I never had the chance to try much./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Can you try now? Or is it dangerous?/
/How intelligent is it anyway?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/Not very. I can't make myself heard to it, although I can, at times, hear it. It's confused… it was created to change the land, and then it was ordered to attack and kill intruders, so the orders are clashing and nobody's left to try and help it./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/But it kills anyone non-dwarf who tries to controll it?/
/Okay, let me try one thing…/
Cessie orders the air elemental to pick up the artifact from Saranna
Aegnor sanoo:
It floats it out of her tight grip, her hands falling limp on her sides
Shadowcaller sanoo:
She orders it to place it on the floor
/How will it react to fire?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/I don't know./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Lets try then…/ She attempts to cast the tiniest fireball possible on the artifact
Aegnor sanoo:
The fireball flies at it, and as it makes contact… disappears. /Ah!/
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/What?! What happend?!/
She sounds very concerned
Aegnor sanoo:
/It… did something./
(At this point in time, near the others *kaboom*? )

Hope sanoo:
(heh)
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/whhat exaclty?/
*what
/Try to explain it./
Aegnor sanoo:
/It… I don't know. Shouted something. Moved something down below. It's like it's scared, or angry./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Okay… did it hurt you?/
/You screamed… I was afraid I might have hurt you there./
Aegnor sanoo:
/No, it was just… loud./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
She casts another tiny fireball, a bit larger this time
Aegnor sanoo:
/I wouldn't do that… it's moving around something down below./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
She summons some water and tries to cool ot down
Without touching it
Any effect?
Aegnor sanoo:
Not really. The water disappears.
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/What would happend if I placed it outside the house?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/I don't know, again./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Ugh, I hate this dangerous experimenting, but I guess I need to take risk if I want to get out of here./
She orders the elemental to place it hold it outside the house
Aegnor sanoo:
Nothing much happens. It moves outside.
Right outside the door, I guess?
Shadowcaller sanoo:
YEah
She takes a step outside, very close to the door
While the artifact is outside that is
Aegnor sanoo:
/The line of trees is where it can affect./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/You can control some of its powers right?/
Aegnor sanoo:
/Sometimes./
Shadowcaller sanoo:
/Lets see…/
Cessie orders the elemental to channel its force into the artifact
