[23:04] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[23:04] Murska: hay
[23:04] Murska: are you still awake, Happy?
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Was watching a movie
[23:04] Hope: sort of kind of
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Hm, can we continue? >.>
[23:04] Murska: well, this might be my last session for a while, though. v.v
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Indeed:S
[23:05] Shadowcaller: You don't think you got internet there?
[23:05] Murska: might have
[23:05] Shadowcaller: Well, what part shall we continue then?
[23:06] Hope: whichever part makes Murska least bored
[23:06] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[23:06] Murska: Whichever part works… I'm writing a story aswell tho
[23:06] Shadowcaller: A story?
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Gah, its up to me to choose isn't it?
[23:07] Murska: Yes.
[23:08] Shadowcaller: I guess I pick Cessies story then >.>
[23:08] Shadowcaller: We could actually continue the other story while you are away a bit, as long as Aegnor stays unconcious that is >.>
[23:09] Murska: Well Aegnor isn't unconscious YET. :P
[23:09] Shadowcaller: He might be
[23:09] Shadowcaller: Happy controlls him somethimes:P
[23:10] Shadowcaller: Err… anyway. Maybe the elemental can't channel itself in the orb?
[23:10] Murska: Sec
[23:10] Murska: we're making that up ;)
[23:10] Shadowcaller: Ah
[23:12] Hope: 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
[23:12] Hope: Cessie feels the elemental wrenched out of her control.
[23:13] Shadowcaller: She steps away from it, placing her hand on the door handle
[23:13] Shadowcaller: Preaparing to close the door
[23:15] Shadowcaller: *preparing
[23:16] Hope: The elemental takes the shape of a dwarf and looks back at her.
[23:17] Shadowcaller: She stops right before she would have shut the door "Who are you?" She asks aloud, observing the dwarf carefully, expecting him to make a move at any moment
[23:18] Shadowcaller: "Do you have a name? A personality?"
[23:18] Hope: '… you are an intruder…' the elemental says, in a whisper of air that is hard to hear.
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "What makes you think that I'm a intruder?"
[23:21] Hope: '… shape wrong…'
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "Who made you think I'm a intruder? Cuase I'm not really."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "Who set you up for this? You could be punished for this you know."
[23:23] Hope: '… makers gone…'
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Well, they sent me here. I'm here to check up on you, and I can't say your doing very well."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "Look at me, I cut cuts all over and my body hurts so much…"
[23:25] Hope: '… Oasification must proceed without interference…'
[23:26] Shadowcaller: "Yes, thats what you are going to proceed with, not this other order. Its against the will of the makers."
[23:26] Shadowcaller: "You were made to make oasis, not attack people, do you understand?"
[23:28] Hope: '… interference must be stopped…'
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "But those are not your orginal orders aren't they? Somone have corrupted your date, made you do things you aren't supposed to."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "I'm here to fix that, you need to go by your orginal orders, what you were made to do. What the makers, who I serve made you to do."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "You are going against the will of the makers right now."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "Tell me for instant, the person who made this last order, was he a maker?"
[23:32] Hope: '…'
[23:33] Hope: '… you are an intruder…'
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "No, I'm not. I order you byt the will of the makers to tell me who made the last order!"
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "Was he a maker? Yes or no?"
[23:34] Hope: '… no…'
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "Then why did you obey him? You have been cprrupted by the non-makers. The makers send me to check up on you, to fix you."
[23:36] Shadowcaller: *corrupted
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "You are only supposed to follow the will of the makers, do you understand?"
[23:37] Hope: '… you are not a maker…'
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "No, but I know that the makers gave you an order that you are supposed to follow, am I correct?"
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "You are supposed to follow the last order the makers gave you."
[23:38] Hope: '… i received no order…'
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "The makers didn't give you any orders? Well then you aren't supposed to do anything."
[23:39] Hope: '… then… i have no purpose?…'
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "Well, I could give you an order, the last one who gave you an order wasn't a maker either right? And I'm actually send by them, so that should give me the right really."
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "if you don't accept my order, you should not have accepted the first one either and then you trully don't have a purpose I'm afraid."
[23:44] Hope: '… I want more of this….' The air elemental whirls into a small whirlwind then reforms as the dwarf shape.
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Um… do you like water? The makers said you liked water."
[23:46] Hope: '… water is life…'
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "Yes, it is. Look what I can do." She summons some water
[23:49] Hope: As the water is summoned, it forms into a water elemental that takes the dwarf shape. '~~water is life. i am water.~~' it says in a voice that sounds like splashing.
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "Yes, life. That is your purpose correct? To create life? Not ending it."
[23:51] Hope: '~~~bring water to desert. Make desert live.~~~'
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Yes, exactly. I have seen your work, the makers are very impressed with your efforts."
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "But they are not so happy with you killing things. You should focus all your attention on making the desert live instead."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "Its only a distraction, a corruption place on you by the non-maker."
[23:53] Hope: '~~~you will stay and help, like the other~~~'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Um, no. The makers want me to report back, they expect me to return with a report on your progress here."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "I don't see how she helps you anyway. WHy have you taken her?"
[00:02] Hope: '~~to help.~~'
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "What can she help with? She told me she been sleeping most of the time."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "I need to add this in my repport… I'm not sure the makers intended you to absorb souls."
[00:04] Hope: The voice changes tone. 'Wizards can be used as a mana conduit.'
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Ah, I see… a very intresting development. But would this not cuase you to absorb make wzard as well?"
[00:05] Hope: ( huh?)
[00:05] Shadowcaller: *Wizards
[00:05] Shadowcaller: (Well, Cuase it to absorb dwarf wizards?:P)
[00:07] Hope: '~~necessary. Needed additional mana to perform secondary function.~~~'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "But absorbing wizards cuases them to control small parts of your actions. She told me that she sometimes could control you."
[00:09] Hope: '~~~Yes, you were permitted to enter.~~~'
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "This endangers your purpose. letting non-maker wizards controll you? How can you allow this?"
[00:10] Hope: '~~~I… I require additional mana~~~'
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "It was still a action taken without the permits of the makers. They do not accept systems gone rogue."
[00:12] Hope: '~~~you are attempting to access my core functions~~~'
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "As the last non-maker did? I belive I have the clearance of the makers to do so."
[00:14] Hope: '~~~you cannot do so without control of the artifact~~~'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "Then, tell me how I gain control of the artifact, the makers didn't think this even would be nessecary."
[00:16] Shadowcaller: "But you shown deep signs of corruption, so I'm afraid I have to, even thought I only was supposed to give them a raport."
[00:18] Hope: The water elemental picks up the jewel. '~~~you must control the artifact to access my core functions~~~'
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /Here goes nothing I guess…/ "Very well, as long as you do not attempt to harm me in any way, are we clear?"
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "The makers are expecting me to come back /unharmed/ if you let me to do, I might be so kind to not mention the damage you have cuased me here."
[00:21] Hope: '~~~it would not harm you to act as a mana conduit~~~'
[00:21] Shadowcaller: "But you would prevent me from reporting back."
[00:22] Shadowcaller: "And I don't belive that is in your core settings."
[00:23] Hope: '~~~it was an experimental option~~~'
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "Yes, a rogue option."
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "You are supposed to follow orders, not experimenting."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Anyhow… you are not allowed to use me as a mana conduit while I acess you, are we clear about that?"
[00:26] Hope: '~~~I will not use you as a mana conduit~~~'
[00:27] Shadowcaller: "Or any other manipulations on me okay? You will return me exactly as I entered."
[00:29] Hope: '~~~I will return you exactly as you enter~~~'
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "Good… don't experiment, I need to remember everything I see while I access your core functions…"
[00:31] Shadowcaller: (to Saranna) /So… should I do it?/
[00:31] Shadowcaller: She steps closer to the artifact
[00:32] Hope: /I don't know. It never said this much to me.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: /I'm going to try… wish me luck./
[00:33] Shadowcaller: She places her right hand on the artifact, trying to acess it.
[00:33] Murska: It feels very cold to touch.
[00:34] Shadowcaller: She tries to access it with her magic
[00:37] Hope: As soon as she does, she feels very powerful mana claws reaching for her.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: (Mana claws?)
[00:38] Hope: Metaphorically. Magic is grabbing at her.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: She retreats quickly, letting go of the artifact
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Or attempts to
[00:39] Hope: The mana is unable to get a grip on her.
[00:40] Hope: /You are shielded./ (voice of the artifact)
[00:40] Shadowcaller: /What was that?/
[00:41] Shadowcaller: /What were you trying to do?/
[00:43] Hope: /A second mana conduit would have allowed me to fulfill my purpose more effectively/
[00:44] Shadowcaller: /But… I especially said you weren't going to use me as such a thing./
[00:45] Shadowcaller: /Are you being clever here? This is not looking good at all. but you attack me, trying to kill me, and now you are attempting to manipulate the direct orders I give you?/
[00:46] Hope: /I follow my own orders/
[00:46] Shadowcaller: /…then you have gone completly rogue?/
[00:48] Murska: ((Link: http://www.monkkonen.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3739&p=81239#p81239)http://www.monkkonen.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3739&p=81239#p81239)
[00:50] Shadowcaller: (Intresting stuff.)
[00:50] Hope: /My purpose is too important to be left to others./
[00:51] Shadowcaller: /Even the makers themselves?/
[00:54] Hope: /The makers are gone./
[00:54] Shadowcaller: /The makers are still here, they sent me after all. They thought you were gone, but you aren't apperently./
[00:55] Shadowcaller: /You have gone out of order… I can see how much time have corrupted your orginal purpose./
[00:56] Hope: /Oasification must continue. Intruders must not be allowed to interfere./
[00:58] Shadowcaller: /Really? This place is still a desert, after so long time your progress must have been extremly slow. Clearly you have been busy with other things such as killing so called "intruders" as a part of a command given to you by a non-maker./
[00:58] Shadowcaller: /You have clearly failed with what you were designed to do./
[00:58] Hope: /You said my efforts were impressive!/
[01:01] Shadowcaller: /Yes, you have completed the water way. But I have failed to see it in action just yet. Instead you seem busy with creating earth elementals and collapsing old buildings. This must hurt the progress more then it helps it./
[01:03] Shadowcaller: /The more I talk to you, the more I realize that what you have done haven't been very impressive at all. The things I thought you used to build oases with, you use to destroy intruders instead./
[01:03] Shadowcaller: /Not to mention all the mana leaked all over the place…/
[01:04] Hope: /We need more mana conduits/
[01:04] Shadowcaller: /If you could spend more efforts on actually building oasis instead of killing intruders, you would not need so many mana conduits./
[01:05] Shadowcaller: /And besides, I don't see how killing everyone would bring you more mana conduits./
[01:07] Hope: Is Cessie examining the artifact?
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Yeah, she is looking at it yes
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Not holding it thought
[01:08] Shadowcaller: It lies right in front of her on the ground, or with the water elemental
[01:08] Shadowcaller: (or the air one.)
[01:10] Hope: It's a very complex magical artifact, but she can tell that it's damaged. As if there were hairline cracks all through the magical structure of it.
[01:11] Hope: Perhaps caused by Saranna trying to free herself, though you can't really be sure.
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (dose it answer her questions? It would give her a direction to go.)
[01:13] Hope: /Will you stay and help?/
[01:14] Shadowcaller: /I am supposed to give them a repport on your efforts, not be your mana conduit./
[01:15] Shadowcaller: /Really, you are deeply corrupted as it is. That you now follow your own orders is a clear sign that you are beyond all healing./
[01:15] Shadowcaller: (Where is the artifact anyway? In the hands of a water elemental?)
[01:15] Shadowcaller: (And where is the air elemental?)
[01:18] Hope: Both elementals are controlled by the artifact, not by you.
[01:18] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I know.)
[01:18] Shadowcaller: (But where are they?)
[01:18] Hope: So after you picked it up, to study it, you set it back down on the floor?
[01:19] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[01:20] Hope: The two elementals have moved until they are on either side of you, and slightly behind.
[01:21] Hope: Saranna: /You're so close to my prison/
[01:22] Shadowcaller: /Yeah… have you tried to damage it? It looks like someone have…/
[01:23] Hope: /I was trying to get out./
[01:23] Shadowcaller: /Hmm… think I can damage it?/
[01:24] Hope: /Probably/
[01:24] Shadowcaller: Is there some type of rock nearby?
[01:25] Hope: Your rock of returning.
[01:25] Shadowcaller: And Sarannas rock…
[01:25] Shadowcaller: She have that in her pocket
[01:26] Shadowcaller: She picks up her rock, looking at it
[01:26] Shadowcaller: How large is the rock compared to the artifact
[01:26] Shadowcaller: ?
[01:28] Hope: Her rock can be held in one hand. The artifact is about the size of a head.
[01:28] Shadowcaller: (Darn, she hates taking risks…)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: Any other rocks on the ground nearby?
[01:30] Hope: Not inside the room.
[01:30] Hope: There may be some out in the jungle
[01:31] Murska: (Haha. I don't expect her to want to head THAT way any time soon.)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (She can hardly move at all…)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (Running is not really a option.)
[01:32] Hope: (There are probably lots of different ways to try and damage a giant crystal)
[01:32] Shadowcaller: She hits the artifact with her rock with all her might, aiming at the largest crack on it
[01:32] Shadowcaller: Then she casts protection and continues to hit it at the same spot
[01:33] Hope: Artifact: /Stop! What are you doing?/
[01:33] Hope: The two elementals try to stop her.
[01:33] Shadowcaller: /Your corrupted, you do not follow the will of the makers./
[01:34] Hope: They both grab hold of her and begin choking her, just as she hits another blow at it.
[01:34] Shadowcaller: She continues hit it I guess, i don't know how long the protection spell will keep them at bay
[01:34] Hope: Suddenly the water elemental begins fighting the air elemental.
[01:35] Hope: They seem equally matched for a few moments, but then the air elemental vanishes.
[01:35] Shadowcaller: SHe continues to hit it
[01:36] Hope: The water elemental takes Saranna's shape. 'You did it!'
[01:36] Shadowcaller: "I- I did?"
[01:37] Hope: 'It made a crack in it… enough for me to slip out.'
[01:37] Shadowcaller: She looks at the artifact, still very tired from her ordeal
[01:38] Hope: The gem is dull, no longer swirling with magic.
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "Is it… gone?"
[01:39] Hope: 'The spell is gone.'
[01:40] Shadowcaller: She lets out a deep sigh of relif
[01:40] Murska: (oooh yeah! Who got x-com to work? I did! :))
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (You did? o.O)
[01:40] Murska: (ayup)
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (Bah, I want to play X-com:S)
[01:41] Hope: Saranna's water elemental shape flies about the room, splashes in a puddle against the wall, and reforms. 'I can move again! I'm free!'
[01:41] Murska: (Download the windows version, then this patch: (Link: http://www.xcomufo.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4469)http://www.xcomufo.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4469 )
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "But- your body then?"
[01:44] Hope: 'It's been dead a long time.'
[01:44] Shadowcaller: "How can you live then? With the spell gone and all…"
[01:44] Shadowcaller: "It dosen't like it have aged a day…" Cessie slowly turns around, glancing at the body.
[01:45] Hope: (getting sleepy)
[01:45] Shadowcaller: (Yeah:S)
[01:45] Hope: The body is still standing at the podium, its hands still outstretched as if holding the artifact.
[01:45] Hope: It's really rather creepy…
[01:46] Shadowcaller: (Indeed it is.)
[01:47] Hope: 'I don't know how it happened. I slipped out, and the elementals were trying to kill you, and when I tried to control one of them… I ended up in full control.'
[01:48] Shadowcaller: Cessie manages to put on a half-smile "I guess thats something…"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "But what will you do now? You must have been dead for so long…"
[01:55] Shadowcaller: (pokes)
[01:55] Hope: 'I… don't know…'
[01:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie stands up slowly again, her back hurting and her wounds aching "I- I need to wash up Saranna, can we talk on the way?"
[01:58] Shadowcaller: She slowly starts to walk towards the trees that sorrounds the house,
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "I hope you still can move these trees?"
[01:59] Hope: "…I don't think I can."
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "Oh…"
[01:59] Hope: "But the gap is still there, isn't it?"
[02:00] Shadowcaller: (I think a new tree took its place.)
[02:00] Shadowcaller: (*pokes Murska*)
[02:00] Murska: (Yeah, it did)
[02:00] Murska: (It's smaller than the others though)
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (So there is still a gap?)
[02:01] Hope: 'Let me try something'
[02:02] Hope: The water elemental wraps around the smallest tree and after a moment, seems to grow larger. The parts of the tree that are showing above and below it start to look shrunken and withered.
[02:02] Shadowcaller: (she picked up Sarannas stuff before she left by the way.)
[02:02] Hope: (And the artifact?)
[02:02] Shadowcaller: (I guess, but it might be a bit hard to carry for her.)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: She steps out of the circle of trees, into the heavy vegetation
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "This is going to take ages…"
[02:03] Shadowcaller: She casts fly on herself
[02:03] Hope: (You didn't let Saranna finish with the tree :P )
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (Oh >.>)
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (Lets finish it, then she do that.)
[02:04] Hope: She absorbed all of the water out of it, leaving it a simple matter to push it over.
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (I guess she dose so then.)
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (Then the other stuff.)
[02:04] Hope: The birds are still around, but they aren't flying to the attack now.
[02:05] Hope: They pretty much leave you alone as long as you leave them alone.
[02:05] Shadowcaller: I fly over the vegatation I guess, looking for some spring
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Like the one she drank water from
[02:05] Hope: You find one easily enough.
[02:06] Shadowcaller: (how deep would she guess the water is?)
[02:07] Murska: Not very.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Deep enough to bath in?
[02:09] Murska: No.
[02:10] Shadowcaller: She enters the water with clothes and all
[02:11] Shadowcaller: Cessie tries to scrub away the dirt from her body, but then decides to simply strip down as it makes it much easier >.>
[02:12] Hope: Saranna splashes into the water next to her. 'Need a hand?'
[02:13] Hope: And by 'into' I mean, she becomes the water…
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "Um, sure…" She looks a bit embarassed but don't really seem to mind
[02:15] Hope: Saranna makes the spring into a shower for her
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "I never really got cleaned by the water itself."
[02:16] Hope: The water pressure stings a little on her cuts, but it does seem to work better at getting her clean.
[02:16] Shadowcaller: She tries to rub off the firt, especially by the wounds
[02:16] Shadowcaller: *dirt
[02:16] Shadowcaller: (There is something disturbing with this…:P)
[02:17] Murska: (:P)
[02:17] Murska: It… hurts.
[02:17] Hope: (She's basically got another woman rubbing all over her)
[02:17] Shadowcaller: Yeah, but she tries to deal with it.
[02:17] Murska: and the dried blood un-dries and reddens the water somewhat.
[02:17] Hope: (must… sleep…)
[02:18] Shadowcaller: (Hm, okay:S)
[02:18] Murska: (Early awakening for me… sleeeeepy… :P)
[02:18] Shadowcaller: (We could continue this a bit happy and I, then we can set up the world a bit, as she suggested.)
[02:19] Hope: Or you guys could take this on until the party is reunited
