Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 7435): Tue Jul 21 14:08:52 2009
[14:08] Murska: Hay, are you ready for IF yet?
[14:09] Murska: :P
[14:09] Shadowcaller: She's hungry, like me
[14:09] Hope: sure. but when the groceries arrive sometime in the next half hour I'll be afk until I get them dealt with
[14:10] Murska: I gots thunderstorm again. :)
[14:11] Murska: Anyway, I'm ready to start whenever.
[14:11] Shadowcaller: Mmm… meatballs
[14:11] Shadowcaller: And fried egg…
[14:11] Hope: grrr
[14:12] Shadowcaller:
[14:12] Murska: chips.
[14:12] Shadowcaller: Eh, I'm hungry
[14:13] Shadowcaller: So… Aegnor collapses on the floor, Simone runs to him. The door opens inwards, a dust elemental have managed to enter the room your in
[14:14] Shadowcaller: Serens light do not quite reach into the room
[14:14] Hope: I thought Seren destroyed the elemental?
[14:14] Shadowcaller: So its still very dark in there
[14:14] Shadowcaller: Its still "alive" just not moving
[14:15] Shadowcaller: The earth elemental is preventing the rest of the elements from entering the room right now
[14:16] Hope: Simone is more concerned with Aegnor than the room beyond.
[14:16] Shadowcaller: His eyes are closed, he is still alive, just not responding to anything you do
[14:17] Hope: Seren moves towards the door so his light can shine in.
[14:19] Shadowcaller: The magical light is weakened, as if it can't be near the walls of the room or the door
[14:19] Hope: So it doesn't show what's inside?
[14:19] Shadowcaller: Nope
[14:20] Shadowcaller: Simones candle lights up the room however
[14:20] Shadowcaller: If she would take it up
[14:21] Murska: Naib takes a quick look into the room, then(assuming nothing dangerous attacks him) turns to Aegnor and Simone. 'How is he?'
[14:21] Hope: Well she's busy looking over Aegnor. "He won't wake up." :(
[14:22] Shadowcaller: The candle reveals only a few parts of the room, that is much larger then the one you currently are in
[14:22] Hope: She lights another candle to hand to Naib, but she's not leaving Aegnor's side.
[14:22] Shadowcaller: Michicora is behind Naib, peering behind his shoulder into the room
[14:23] Murska: 'I'll check the room.' He takes the candle and steps in.
[14:24] Shadowcaller: The first he sees when he enters are a ancient stone bookcase and suprisingly very old books within it. It looks like the damp air inside here somehow have perserved these books somewhat, but they still looks like they are going to crumble any moment now
[14:25] Shadowcaller: In the middle of the room lies a strange reptilian skeleton, it looks part man, part lizard
[14:25] Murska: He steps farther, looking for any exits or dangers above all.
[14:26] Shadowcaller: On each side of the room there are more bookcases
[14:26] Hope: Seren steps in as well.
[14:26] Shadowcaller: And another door in the right corner of it
[14:27] Shadowcaller: The ceeling is much lower then in the last rooms you been in, you can see that the door you entered throught was very thick
[14:28] Shadowcaller: A stone table is underneath the skeleton in the middle
[14:29] Murska: Naib places the candle on the table.
[14:29] Shadowcaller: He have to remove the skeletion first
[14:30] Shadowcaller: *skeleton
[14:30] Murska: Skeleton-shaped table?
[14:30] Shadowcaller: The skeleton is laying on top of the table
[14:30] Murska: Oh well. He hands the candle to Michicora then.
[14:31] Shadowcaller: She takes it and continues into the room, looking around
[14:31] Murska: And steps out of the room. 'There's another door, books and a skeleton on a table.'
[14:32] Hope: (groceries)
[14:32] Murska: (brb, fishing)
[14:32] Shadowcaller: Are they touching anything inside the room?
[14:32] Murska: (nice timing)
[14:32] Murska: Naib isn't.
[14:32] Shadowcaller: (Perfect timing
)
[14:34] Shadowcaller: (well, except the floor I assume?;))
[14:35] Hope: (yay groceries! and I'm going to burn some dead animal flesh now. :) )
[14:35] Shadowcaller: (Burn baby, burn!)
[14:41] Murska: (I'm going to watch my father remove stuff from inside a fish)
[14:41] Murska: (And yeah, I assume they touch the floor)
[14:42] Shadowcaller: (Well, you don't feel anything special from it.)
[14:43] Murska: (It doesn't exist! The dark shadows shoot from the floor, grabbing their legs, pulling them into the void… *cough* No, it's a floor.)
[14:44] Shadowcaller: (Pretty much yeah:P)
[14:44] Shadowcaller: (Its made of the same meterial as the walls thought.)
[14:44] Shadowcaller: Or at least they are exactly the same color, obsidan black
[14:46] Shadowcaller: *material
[14:46] Hope: (this burger contains 25% of the recommended daily fat allowance)
[14:46] Shadowcaller: (o.O)
[14:47] Murska: (I contain way less than what I feel is my recommended fat allowance, so I'm chomping those chips now. :P)
[14:49] Shadowcaller: The air inside the room feels as much as the room itself, very old and very well preserved
[14:49] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is still not moving
[14:49] Murska: Naib checks the status of the elementals inside the room.
[14:51] Shadowcaller: Right now irs pretty much just a big pile of dust, but he can see some of the dust swirling around in the air above the pile
[14:51] Shadowcaller: *its
[14:53] Murska: He attempts to scatter the swirling dust with his hand.
[14:54] Shadowcaller: The dust is scattered in all directions, some of it fall down on the floor again while some of it just swirls away further up into the air
[14:55] Hope: Seren examines the door then.
[14:56] Shadowcaller: It look pretty much the same as the door you just entered
[14:57] Shadowcaller: Michicora is standing close to the table in the middle of the room with Simones candle, as to light up the room as smuch as possible
[14:57] Shadowcaller: She is watching the skeleton
[14:58] Murska: Naib crouches next to Aegnor and Simone.
[14:59] Hope: Does it have a magic void to it as well?
[15:00] Shadowcaller: It dose yes
[15:00] Shadowcaller: All of the room have this magic void
[15:00] Shadowcaller: Or rather, the material its made of
[15:01] Hope: "I guess we have to risk it," he says, and reaches out and touches the door.
[15:01] Shadowcaller: Nothing happends
[15:02] Shadowcaller: The door feel oddly cool to touch to him, as if its uneffected by warmth too
[15:06] Shadowcaller: This entire room feels a bit cold when he thinks about it
[15:07] Hope: He tries to open the door.
[15:07] Shadowcaller: Push or pull?
[15:07] Shadowcaller: Not that there is a handle…
[15:07] Hope: any hinges?
[15:07] Shadowcaller: He can't see any
[15:08] Hope: Then he'll try pushing
[15:08] Hope: since pulling would usually require something to pull wish
[15:08] Hope: *with
[15:08] Shadowcaller: It pushes inwards, slowly. The door is quite heavy
[15:08] Shadowcaller: It appears as thick as the last one
[15:09] Hope: And on the other side?
[15:09] Shadowcaller: A short corridor
[15:09] Shadowcaller: It leads downwards
[15:09] Shadowcaller: There are, or at least should have been torches on each side of the room
[15:09] Shadowcaller: But they are long gone
[15:10] Shadowcaller: He can still see their holders
[15:10] Shadowcaller: *corridor
[15:10] Shadowcaller: The corridor leads down to yet another door in the same style as the two first ones
[15:11] Hope: "I'm not sure if this is a way out or just further into a dead end."
[15:13] Shadowcaller: Michicora that followed him once he opened the second door shrugs and replies: "The other way is closed."
[15:14] Hope: Then he tries the next door
[15:15] Shadowcaller: It opens, much like the last one, the very first thing he sees once he opened it is a lizard/man skeleton laying on the floor at the entrance
[15:16] Shadowcaller: Its… looking at him
[15:17] Shadowcaller: The rest of the room is hard to see without any light, but he can see vague shapes of more bookcases
[15:17] Murska: As the light disappears into the corridor, Naib carefully attempts to pick up Aegnor and carry him to at least the first room.
[15:18] Shadowcaller: He dose so, (how light is Aegnor?)
[15:18] Murska: (With all that stuff, I'd assume not very light. :P)
[15:19] Shadowcaller: (But I still assume Naib can carry him?)
[15:19] Murska: (Yeah)
[15:20] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is quite heavy, for an elf. But he still manges to lift him up
[15:21] Shadowcaller: *manages
[15:21] Hope: (Make the npc do it. ;) )
[15:23] Hope: Simone seems to snap out of her shock at this point and realize that worrying isn't helping things. So she runs on ahead to scout.
[15:23] Shadowcaller: She runs past Michicora and Seren?
[15:28] Hope: Yeah
[15:28] Hope: Unless someone stops her.
[15:28] Hope: She's not running full out. It's her typical sneaky scamper.
[15:29] Shadowcaller: Michicora is not stopping her as she was waiting for Seren to enter the room
[15:29] Shadowcaller: She almost falls on the skeleton at the entrance of the room.
[15:31] Shadowcaller: Michicora holds the candle inside the room, squeezing herself beside Seren at the entrance
[15:31] Shadowcaller: Inside the room Simone can see additional skeletons on the floor, sitting in a circle around a table, much like the one in the last room
[15:32] Shadowcaller: In the left corner of it is a idol of a dragon
[15:32] Shadowcaller: In the far right corner is another door
[15:33] Hope: "The university would love to see this place.." Seren mutters.
[15:34] Shadowcaller: Simone can feel something from the dragon idol, but she can't really say what it is. Some type of presense. Michicora is looking at it oddly
[15:35] Murska: 'What'd you find?' Naib asks with a slightly raised voice from the previous room.
[15:36] Shadowcaller: *presense
[15:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, the NPC's aren't supposed to do much >.>)
[15:39] Hope: "The dragon idol… I think it's alive."
[15:39] Hope: She makes her way back to Naib and begins to search Aegnor's pockets for the spyglass.
[15:39] Shadowcaller: Simone is quite good with pockets and finds it quite quickly
[15:40] Hope: (Unless Naib decided to go lawful on her ;) )
[15:41] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Its a conduite…"
[15:42] Shadowcaller: "its made to connected to gods… or spirits."
[15:42] Murska: Naib looks at her questioningly when she starts checking his pockets, but doesn't stop her.
[15:42] Shadowcaller: She steps a bit closer to it, but dosen't touch it.
[15:43] Hope: Simone looks throught he spyglass at the idol.
[15:44] Shadowcaller: In the spyglas it have some type of aura around itself
[15:45] Shadowcaller: Its shining, blinding Simone a bit
[15:45] Hope: She waits for her eyes to adjust, then tries to make out what it is.
[15:46] Shadowcaller: Its nothing really, just the idol
[15:46] Shadowcaller: The idol itself have some type of presense
[15:46] Shadowcaller: *presens
[15:47] Shadowcaller: At the same time Aegnor is moving a bit
[15:47] Hope: Simone curtseys. "Hello, Mr Idol. How are you?"
[15:47] Murska: Naib is bringing him to the idol-room.
[15:48] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "You need to touch it, its a tool. Not a intelligent thing."
[15:48] Shadowcaller: "Its like a summoning circle."
[15:49] Shadowcaller: "You can contact Kuori for example."
[15:50] Shadowcaller: Aegnor mumbles something, to naib it sounds like its something about dragons and destiny
[15:51] Murska: 'Aegnor?'
[15:52] Hope: "Aegnor?"
[15:52] Shadowcaller: The voice don't sound quite like Aegnors, it shifts to a differnet lanaguage from time to time
[15:52] Hope: Simone turns away from the idol to check on Aegnor.
[15:53] Shadowcaller: Aegnor suddenly looks up and pulls himself away from Naib saying something in the alien langauge
[15:54] Shadowcaller: He retreats into the closest corner of the room, looking scared
[15:55] Shadowcaller: He watches the rest, terrified
Session Close (Group Conversation 7435): Tue Jul 21 15:55:42 2009

[15:56] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
Aegnor suddenly looks up and pulls himself away from Naib saying something in the alien langauge
He retreats into the closest corner of the room, looking scared
He watches the rest, terrified

[15:58] Shadowcaller: And shouts something else in the alien language that none of you understand
[15:59] Hope: Simone scowls, turns back to the idol, and grabs it. "Let him go!"
[16:00] Shadowcaller: There is a quiet whisper in Simones head once she touches the idol, then she feel something inside the room die
[16:01] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is not taking this well, he dashes towards the unopened door
[16:02] Murska: 'Hey!'
[16:02] Shadowcaller: He dosen't even seems to hear you

[16:04] Hope: /Let him go! Let him go! I want Aegnor back!/
[16:06] Shadowcaller: There is a reptilian voice responding inside Simones head /What?/ It sounds suprised /Who are you?/
[16:06] Hope: /I'm his friend. Whatever you're doing to him, stop it!/
[16:07] Shadowcaller: /I'm not doing anything, you are a friend of Aegnor?/
[16:07] Shadowcaller: /Whats going on?/
[16:08] Hope: /Something's possessing him. He's not himself.
[16:08] Shadowcaller: Aegnor pushes open the door
[16:09] Shadowcaller: And dissapears into the dark of whatever is beyond that door
[16:09] Murska: Naib goes after him.
[16:09] Shadowcaller: /Give me a moment…/
[16:10] Hope: How big is the idol?
[16:10] Murska: (Mwahaha. There goes FC-wagon.)
[16:10] Shadowcaller: (Its about Simones size.)
[16:10] Shadowcaller: There is a flash (that only Simone can see by the spyglas) and a small dragon appears just above the idol
[16:11] Shadowcaller: It looks down on Simone /I have come./
[16:11] Hope: (what game?)
[16:11] Shadowcaller: (a small green dragon,)
[16:11] Shadowcaller: (Demons.)
[16:12] Hope: /He went this way!/ Simone runs after Aegnor.
[16:12] Shadowcaller: The dragons follows, or so she assumes
[16:13] Shadowcaller: They follow Aegnor throught another corridor, much longer this time, it leads downwards
[16:13] Hope: Well Simone makes sure it's following her
[16:13] Shadowcaller: It dose, if she looks at it with the spyglas
[16:14] Shadowcaller: They see a doubledoor at the far end of the corridor, Aegnor is heading towards it
[16:14] Shadowcaller: Michicora is following as well
[16:15] Hope: "Stop him!" Simone shouts.
[16:16] Shadowcaller: Michicora takes up her crossbow and gives Simone a look
[16:18] Shadowcaller: Aegnor stops at the doubledoor and tries to open it, Its slowly pushed inwards by him
[16:18] Murska: Naib oughta be the first to catch him
[16:18] Murska: since he went after him first
[16:19] Shadowcaller: Yeah, but Aegnor is suprisingly fast
[16:19] Murska: He would. :P
[16:19] Shadowcaller: Just as Naib is getting to the double door he slids behind it
[16:19] Murska: He follows, then
[16:20] Shadowcaller: Beyond the doubledoor is a more cave-like envoirment, he can hear splashes of water here
[16:20] Hope: As do Seren and Simone.
[16:21] Shadowcaller: Its huge
[16:21] Shadowcaller: And Michicora
[16:22] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see Aegnor until Michicora comes with the candle
[16:22] Shadowcaller: They have entered a quite large underwater cave
[16:22] Hope: (not completely underwater, I hope…)
[16:23] Shadowcaller: (Nope, just a lake in the middle of it.)
[16:23] Shadowcaller: Aegnor have leaped into the water
[16:23] Hope: Simone is catching up by now. She's very fast when she wants to be.
[16:23] Shadowcaller: And they can just see him dive under it
[16:24] Shadowcaller: *-under it
[16:25] Shadowcaller: Everyone is in the cave now
[16:25] Hope: /What is he doing?/
[16:26] Shadowcaller: /Retreating… he is using the Heliots escape route./
[16:26] Shadowcaller: /But he is not a Heliot… he will drown there./
[16:27] Shadowcaller: /Cursed memories./
[16:27] Hope: /How do we stop him?!/
[16:28] Shadowcaller: /Stun him… he is not possessed really, somone have just put his dragon side in charge./
[16:28] Hope: "He's going to drown himself! We have to stop him!"
[16:29] Shadowcaller: (Seren is feeling natural levels of magic inside this cave.)
[16:30] Hope: Simone wants to dive in the water after him, but she stops herself at the water's edge, her intellect reminding her that she doesn't know how to swim.
[16:30] Hope: Seren casts a hold person spell at Aegnor.
[16:30] Murska: Naib doesn't go into the water either.
[16:31] Shadowcaller: (How good swimmer is Aegnor?)
[16:32] Murska: (Well, he can swim. Not excellent by any means though. Okay, I guess.)
[16:32] Murska: (and has metal on him »)
[16:32] Murska: (quite a lot)
[16:32] Hope: (And is probably trying to swim with a different body than the one he's equipped with)
[16:32] Shadowcaller: (Most likely yes.)
[16:33] Shadowcaller: He can't actually see if the spell hits or not, but Aegnor do stop swimming
[16:33] Shadowcaller: Now he just sinks
[16:34] Murska: (Uh. Michicora? :P)
[16:34] Murska: (Naib of the Desert ain't gonna swim after him. :P)
[16:34] Hope: Seren is going after him.
[16:34] Shadowcaller: (She also lived in the desert >.>)
[16:35] Murska: (Naib Of the Funk! *cough*)
[16:35] Hope: The light spell should still be going with him.
[16:35] Shadowcaller: Yeah, it works like its supposed to now
[16:35] Murska: brb
[16:36] Shadowcaller: He comes closer to Aegnor that ever so slowly sinks to the buttom of the small lake
[16:37] Shadowcaller: All his armor sinking him down
[16:37] Hope: (I guess this is the real test of whether Seren's trying to be a good guy or not. :P )
[16:38] Hope: Seren grabs hold of him and tries to drag him back to the surface.
[16:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, this would get him Cessies attention;))
[16:38] Shadowcaller: He is quite heavy, Seren is not sure he can pull up both of them
[16:38] Shadowcaller: He is swimming upwards, but very, very slowy
[16:39] Hope: This would be a great time to discover that he can summon water elementals. But sadly, he can't.
[16:39] Shadowcaller: He can't even use his both arms >.>
[16:40] Hope: (Swimming's more legs than arms anyway. But Seren's not very strong.)
[16:40] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[16:41] Shadowcaller: Well, he is soon exhuased if he continues this way
[16:42] Hope: Well he has no choice, so he keeps going.
[16:43] Hope: When he feels like his lungs are on fire, he thinks that maybe he might have to let him go. But then he imagines what that would do to Cessie, and he keeps fighting for the surface.
[16:43] Shadowcaller: (I suggest you think about this a moment or two, cuase that way is not going to work.)
[16:43] Hope: Can Simone see him at all? He should be quite visible with the light spell.
[16:43] Shadowcaller: Yeah, they can see them alright
[16:44] Hope: She unwraps her saree and hands one end of it to whoever's closest. "I go after them. You pull us out."
[16:44] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is a bit too heavy for Seren
[16:45] Hope: And with the other end tied around her, she jumps into the water and heads for them.
[16:45] Shadowcaller: Moral boost or not
[16:45] Shadowcaller: Just how long is her Saree anyway?
[16:46] Hope: 5 metres maybe
[16:46] Shadowcaller: Well, the lake is quite deep, about 30 meters
[16:46] Shadowcaller: Aegnor and Seren is at 17 meters deep now
[16:47] Shadowcaller: Not moving much else
[16:47] Shadowcaller: Seren must struggle to not sink
[16:47] Hope: um… Murska, little help?
[16:48] Shadowcaller: There is a underwater passage, leading out from the cave, not that it matters much to you
[16:49] Shadowcaller: It was most likely the place Aegnor was heading for
[16:50] Shadowcaller: /This won't work… they will drown./
[16:52] Hope: /Then help me! What can I do?/
[16:53] Shadowcaller: /I… don't know, I'm very limited here./
[16:54] Shadowcaller: /Try to make him easier? Possibly?/
[16:54] Shadowcaller: *lighter
[16:56] Murska: (Michicora can't swim? Oo)
[16:57] Shadowcaller: (No, she grew up in the mountains.)
[16:57] Shadowcaller: (They had a well, thats all.)
[16:57] Hope: (mountains have lakes, you know. :P)
[16:57] Shadowcaller: (Yes, but not this one.)
[16:57] Murska: (Well, I was just thinking about his who knows how many years of hunting people all around)
[16:58] Hope: (Simone grew up in a city. She didn't learn to swim until she was hanging out in Gallion.)
[16:58] Shadowcaller: (*hers, and she never hunted someone underwater.)
[16:58] Hope: (We need Hope for this :P)
[16:58] Murska: (Naib can barely stay afloat and that's all)
[16:59] Hope: Simone unties the saree from herself and swims down to the light source. She then starts quickly relieving Aegnor of his weaponry and other heavy things.
[16:59] Murska: (anyway, I suppose we'll have to get rid of his weaponry. v.v)
[16:59] Hope: (his guitar! O.o)
[17:00] Shadowcaller: That makes him muc lighter, but Seren is already quite exhuased, they are moving towards the surface slowly now
[17:00] Murska: (well that's ruined)I
[17:00] Shadowcaller: (:()
[17:00] Shadowcaller: *much
[17:00] Shadowcaller: Is Simone helping?
[17:00] Hope: As well as she can. Which isn't going to be much.
[17:01] Hope: But she tries to find the end of the saree.
[17:01] Shadowcaller: Seren don't know how much longer he can hold his breath
[17:02] Shadowcaller: Simone can see the end of her saree, but its quite hard to get a grip on in the water
[17:02] Shadowcaller: How is Seren dressed anyway?
[17:02] Hope: Ordinary clothes. He doesn't wear robes.
[17:02] Shadowcaller: Ah
[17:02] Hope: Or carry any weapons.
[17:02] Hope: He's probably kicked off his shoes by now.
[17:03] Shadowcaller: Seren seems to pass out a bit, but they aren't sinking as they used to due the relif of weight, Simone manages to grab her saree
[17:03] Shadowcaller: *relife
[17:03] Hope: (haha… everyone kept asking me to go to war against England. So I finally did even though she's on the other side of the world from me and my navy is a single galley)
[17:04] Hope: Michicora and Naib pull them up then?
[17:04] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, happends to me too)
[17:04] Shadowcaller: Michicora is
[17:04] Murska: Naib does, too
[17:04] Shadowcaller: But can Simone pull up Seren and Aegnor?
[17:04] Hope: (Yeah, just hang on. I'll send my two guys over right now ;) )
[17:05] Hope: She's just hanging on to them and to the saree. She's not doing the pulling.
[17:05] Hope: Trying to tie it around them actually.
[17:05] Shadowcaller: Ah, then they finally manages to pull them above the surface
[17:05] Shadowcaller: None of them are moving however
[17:06] Shadowcaller: Well, beside Simone that is
[17:06] Murska: They drag 'em ashore
[17:06] Hope: Simone is quite exhausted by this and is gasping for air. But she crawls over to Aegnor to see if he's still alive.
[17:07] Shadowcaller: Neither of them are breathing
[17:07] Shadowcaller: Its hard to tell if they are alive or not
[17:09] Shadowcaller: /They still live… but… I can't help them here./
[17:09] Shadowcaller: /They are going to the other side quickly./
[17:11] Hope: Simone pushes Aegnor onto his side and whacks him on the back.
[17:11] Hope: (I don't suppose even someone as well read as she is would know about the Heimlich maneuver. >.> )
[17:12] Shadowcaller: (Well, this looks quite bleak >.>)
[17:12] Shadowcaller: (Any magic items?)
[17:13] Hope: /Helios, help us!/
[17:13] Shadowcaller: Water comes out of Aegnors mouth, but he is still not moving, or breathing for that matter
[17:13] Shadowcaller: /What is your offer?/
[17:14] Hope: /There's no time! Just do it! I'll owe you, just do it!/
[17:14] Shadowcaller: /Make a circle, put them into it./
[17:16] Shadowcaller: /You own me a favor now, and they both own me a life./
[17:16] Hope: What is there nearby that she can make a circle with?
[17:16] Hope: dirt? rocks?
[17:16] Shadowcaller: Ask around, i can think of one who could have something to make a circle with…'
[17:17] Hope: "We need a… summoning circle… Helios…"
[17:18] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Helios?…" She takes up a bag from her belt.
[17:18] Shadowcaller: ANd makes a circle I guess
[17:18] Shadowcaller: *circel
[17:19] Shadowcaller: *circle
[17:19] Hope: And Simone tries to drag Aegnor into it, probably with very little success.
[17:20] Murska: Naib helps.
[17:20] Murska: the wizard is also dragged
[17:20] Shadowcaller: Michicora Lifts up seren quite easily and puts him into the cirle
[17:20] Hope: Probably works better to do the circle around them actually
[17:20] Hope: or they'd just be dragged over it
[17:20] Shadowcaller: *circle, gah
[17:20] Shadowcaller: /Summon me Simone…(
[17:20] Shadowcaller: */
[17:21] Shadowcaller: The dragon looks questionly at Simone
[17:21] Hope: "Helios, hurry."
[17:22] Shadowcaller: Darkness enters the circle… and the very next moment it dissapears
[17:22] Shadowcaller: Borth Aegnor and Seren wakes up
[17:22] Shadowcaller: *both
[17:22] Hope: "Aegnor?"
[17:23] Shadowcaller: (He is under your control now.)
[17:23] Murska: 'Uh. What did I do while I was away?
[17:23] Shadowcaller: ((he rembers waking up from the dream underwater…)
[17:24] Shadowcaller: *remembers
[17:25] Shadowcaller: Aegnor can see Jugan (in a much smaller form looking at him) /You survived… I didn't know your gods had such power./
[17:26] Murska: /I… guess that's good./
[17:26] Shadowcaller: /Yes… I'm sorry I could not help you./
[17:26] Hope: Simone hugs Aegnor, still trying to get her breath back.
[17:27] Hope: (Seren and Aegnor are fully recovered?)
[17:27] Shadowcaller: (they are.)
[17:27] Shadowcaller: (And Helios have most likely learned all their secrets >.>)
[17:28] Murska: (Without permission, the jerk.)
[17:28] Shadowcaller: (+ they now own him.)
[17:28] Hope: (you mean 'owe'
[17:28] Shadowcaller: yeah
[17:28] Hope: (they'd /like/ to own him)
[17:28] Shadowcaller: (Darn words.)
[17:28] Shadowcaller: (Not that they are aware of any of this.)
[17:29] Murska: (He's a bit confused what with nobody speaking to him or anything.)
[17:30] Hope: Seren: "What happeend? I thought we were going to drown."
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (Well, Michicora isn't going to say much, and Jugan have already said stuff.)
[17:30] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "You didn't."
[17:30] Hope: (Simone can barely breathe right now)
[17:30] Shadowcaller: "Kuori was a much better choice…"
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (Naib then?)
[17:32] Murska: Naib isn't saying anything either. » darn guests
[17:32] Murska: busy
[17:32] Shadowcaller: (Ah >.>)
[17:33] Hope: "I don't… know… Kuori…." Simone says, still gasping.
[17:33] Hope: (seren /just/ said something)
[17:34] Shadowcaller: (brb dinner while Murska got guests, I think you can continue on your own a bit.)
[17:35] Murska: Aegnor attempts to sit up. 'So… what happened?'
[17:39] Hope: Fast forwarding a few minutes until Simone can breathe… "You went crazy and tried to go underwater. The dragon, he say you thought you were something else - a Heliot - and that you try to escape underwater. Seren go to get you, but you both were dying when we got you up…." Her voice drops to just barely audible. "So I had to ask Helios to save you."
[17:39] Hope: At some point she realizes she's in her underwear, and wraps her wet saree back around herself.
[17:41] Murska: '…so at least I only harmed myself.' Aegnor breathes a sigh of relief. 'What'd Helios want for it, then?'
[17:42] Hope: "Favors. From each of us. So he going to screw us. But at least you alive."
[17:43] Hope: (Although Helios still owes Murska a favor, so I guess they could cancel their debts.)
[17:43] Murska: He smiles at Simone. 'Thank you.
[17:45] Hope: "Your stuff all underwater" :(
[17:46] Hope: (Would he have had his guitar? Or would he have left it back with the villagers?)
[17:46] Hope: (I don't guess he'd take his full pack on a scouting trip)
[17:46] Murska: (Mm. Not sure.)
[17:46] Murska: His eyes widen and he reaches for his kazoo, in one of the inner pockets of his clothing.
[17:47] Hope: Simone didn't get to that, it not being heavy enough to notice.
[17:48] Hope: His shoes, weapons, and numerous coin pouches are all gone though
[17:49] Hope: Simone hands him the spyglass, which was left onshore with her own belongings.
[17:49] Murska: His bow? v.v
[17:49] Hope: (how heavy is a bow?)
[17:49] Murska: (Well it's wood, so it floats)
[17:49] Hope: (It's probably still attached to him then)
[17:50] Murska: Several arrows are probably floating on the lake.
[17:50] Murska: Or sank.
[17:50] Hope: Godslayer though… I give even odds whether or not it's still there.
[17:50] Hope: Want to go to invisible castle?
[17:50] Murska: Well, it's probably deep within his clothing aswell
[17:50] Hope: This would have been a rush job.
[17:50] Murska: since it's another important piece of equipment :P
[17:50] Hope: seeing as how everyone was drowning
[17:51] Murska: and a girl who can't swim was underwater
[17:51] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[17:51] Hope: Hey, she learned to swim a whole few weeks ago.
[17:51] Murska: Awesome. :P
[17:52] Murska: 'How deep is it?'
[17:52] Hope: And being skinny, isn't very good at staying afloat.
[17:52] Shadowcaller: (about 30 meters)
[17:52] Hope: "Maybe 20 or 30 metres." She says. Assume that's converted into whatever unit of measure they use there. ;)
[17:53] Hope: "We have any rope? I could go back down and try and get your stuff."
[17:55] Murska: He sighs. 'Well, at least…' He shakes his head. 'Where are we? We need to find a way to Cessie, not mess around here.'
[17:55] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Don't think so."
[17:56] Shadowcaller: /The underwater cave leads out of here, but I'm not sure you can hold your breath long enough to come to the next air gasp./
[17:57] Shadowcaller: /Its very brilliant designed, only heliots could swim that good and hold their breaths that long to be able to use this escape./
[17:57] Murska: fishing, brb. Or well, a bit longer than brb
[17:57] Murska: maybe bbbs
[17:57] Murska: bbs*
[17:57] Shadowcaller: (bbs?)
[17:57] Shadowcaller: (Simone hears this too by the way.)
[17:57] Hope: (be back soon)
[17:57] Shadowcaller: (right.)
[17:57] Murska: be back soon
[17:58] Hope: (haha… 4 out of 5 nations are at war with Victoria)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (
)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (Is she powerful? Or just a weak nation declaring war on everyone else?)
[17:59] Hope: (I don't know. She's on the other side of the world from me so I know very little about her)
[18:00] Shadowcaller: (ah.)
[18:00] Shadowcaller: (sec.)
[18:00] Hope: (but when I first met a scout of hers very early in the game, she already was worst enemies with two different AIs)
[18:01] Hope: (I don't know what you have to do to manage that)
[18:04] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[18:05] Shadowcaller: (Maybe she is just very aggresive? I'm suprised she still exist.)
[18:06] Hope: (it's the inland sea map. She only has two immediate neighbors)
[18:06] Shadowcaller: (In one game, I killed a leader after like 10 turns.)
[18:06] Hope: heh
[18:06] Shadowcaller: (we were right next to each other >.>)
[18:07] Hope: (I've never been close enough to try and take another civ that early)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: (He had one warrior protecting.)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: (I attacked with my first warrior.)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: (Then I attacked with thew one I builded at the start of the game.)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: (It was one left on the end^^)
[18:09] Hope: (heh… I hardly ever war. it's just so tedious dragging units together to make a stack and then dragging them one square at a time to the enemy)
[18:10] Shadowcaller: (I wage war at times.)
[18:10] Shadowcaller: (Often in either the early or the late game.)
[18:11] Shadowcaller: (When I'm *really* advanced.)
[18:12] Murska: (I war a lot)
[18:12] Murska: (Whenever I feel I can gain more than lose)
[18:12] Shadowcaller: (Of course you do >.>)
[18:12] Shadowcaller: /The last of them wanted me to preserve their spirits inside these walls…/
[18:13] Murska: (Aww, I'm that bad? v.v)
[18:13] Hope: (haha… the apostolic palace made Victoria make peace with me, because I'm their brother in faith ^^ )
[18:13] Murska: /And I suppose there's no way to get rid of the water?/
[18:13] Hope: (even though we never actually fought a single skirmish(
[18:14] Shadowcaller: /Not what I know of, no./
[18:14] Shadowcaller: /This passage leads a very long way, it ends up at many locations./
[18:15] Murska: (Hmm. The flute is wooden, right?)
[18:15] Shadowcaller: /I think it ends at the Cassian sea… but have many "stops" on the way./
[18:15] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[18:15] Murska: /Do you know where Cessie is?/ Aegnor asks with a hint of desperation.
[18:16] Shadowcaller: /I'm afraid not… thats the mortal you liked right?/
[18:16] Murska: /…yes./
[18:17] Shadowcaller: /Well, I can't help you I'm afraid, not here./
[18:17] Murska: /What IS this place?/
[18:17] Hope: afk
[18:17] Shadowcaller: /A bunker of sort./
[18:18] Shadowcaller: /A family of Heliots, or as you know them, lizardmen, hid here./
[18:18] Shadowcaller: /Its made by Tarman, a rare rock that dampens magic./
[18:20] Shadowcaller: /But the magic prevented them from escaping, so they stayed… and died./
[18:20] Murska: (Edited my entry with preliminary guesses as to what I lost)
[18:20] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[18:21] Murska: (arg)
[18:21] Murska: (darn bugs)
[18:21] Shadowcaller: /I regretfully fullfilled their last wish./
[18:21] Shadowcaller: (Not many bugs around here thankfully…)
[18:22] Murska: (The goddarn form for editing the page keeps scrolling up on it's own
[18:22] Murska: (preventing me from editing it)
[18:23] Murska: (finally)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: /To have their spirits imprinted into these walls, to safeguard it, to preserve the knowledge inside for future generations of Heliots./
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (Darn laptops…)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: Simone can hear this too by the way
[18:24] Hope: (back)
[18:24] Hope: /What are the dust things? Do you know how to stop them?/
[18:25] Shadowcaller: /The dust things are a part of the magic that orginally trapped the Heliots here./
[18:25] Shadowcaller: /If they die, the magic will just find another way to kill you./
[18:26] Shadowcaller: /You are safe inside this bunker at least…/
[18:26] Shadowcaller: /But as you see from the last ones who stayed here…/
[18:27] Shadowcaller: /You need to get out./
[18:29] Hope: /I think it easier to fight the dust than go underwater./
[18:30] Murska: /I agree. At least that way heads back towards Cessie…/
[18:30] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "What are you doing?"
[18:31] Shadowcaller: /The passage stops inside the pyramid somewhere if I'm not misstaken, then it continues./
[18:31] Murska: Naib is looking at the lake. 'There's so much water here…'
[18:33] Shadowcaller: Michicora nods in agreement "Too much of it…"
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "We aren't going…inside it right?"

[18:39] Hope: [18:38] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
Michicora nods in agreement "Too much of it…"
"We aren't going…inside it right?"
[18:40] Murska: 'So much water gathered here. There's probably some way of routing it out, into the pipes.'
[18:41] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "How?"
[18:42] Hope: "Too bad nymph not come with us."
[18:42] Hope: (Simone)
[18:42] Shadowcaller: "Wizard, can you look for pipes?"
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "You can move in it…"
[18:46] Hope: "Yes, I can look. But if we're getting out that way, we'll all have to go through it. We have to figure out how we're going to do that."
[18:47] Murska: 'There would be controls… somewhere. I guess.'
[18:50] Shadowcaller: /The passage leads in one direction, I think there are pipes between this place and a pump station further down./
[18:53] Murska: /What… where is the 'control switch'?/
[18:53] Shadowcaller: /I'm not sure… I think the magic was supposed to take care of that./
[18:54] Shadowcaller: /These people worshipped us after all, but now magic rules it./
[18:55] Shadowcaller: /Is there any way this wizard of yours can manipulate the magic?/
[18:56] Hope: Simone relays the conversation to Seren.
[18:58] Hope: "I can try. I've used a lot of spells today though." (unless Helios's healing refreshed his magic as well ? )
[18:59] Shadowcaller: (Lets say it did.)
[18:59] Hope: "Oh… that's strange…"
[19:00] Hope: I feel like I'm fully rested."
[19:01] Hope: (haha.. I love how Victoria hates me more than the guy who keeps taking her cities. Even though I've never set foot on her land)
[19:01] Shadowcaller: (You are just that bad:P)
[19:01] Hope: (Is she always like this?)
[19:02] Shadowcaller: (*shrug*)
[19:02] Hope: (I was really asking Murska)
[19:02] Hope: Seren sits at the water's edge and focuses his mind. Then he touches the water and tries to feel where the magic is.
[19:03] Hope: (ah… the guy who keeps going to war with her is her own religion)
[19:03] Shadowcaller: There is magic deep down in the lake
[19:04] Hope: Can he gain control of it in any way?
[19:04] Shadowcaller: He can feel it sipping in… he can pinpoint the source
[19:04] Shadowcaller: He can't, the magic is under control of something else
[19:05] Murska: (sorry… stuff happening)
[19:05] Shadowcaller: (Ah.)
[19:05] Shadowcaller: (Hm, would Seren be able to talk to Saranna?)
[19:06] Murska: (not without a magical rock-focus I think, and probably not even the spell itself would talk to him)
[19:08] Shadowcaller: (Okay, go on then.)
[19:08] Hope: Can he gain a spatial awareness of the pipe system?
[19:09] Shadowcaller: He can sense where the magic leads yes
[19:10] Shadowcaller: It leads to the pumping station you were in before you entered the this building
[19:10] Shadowcaller: *-the
[19:10] Hope: Where we met the nymph?
[19:11] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[19:15] Hope: Can he tell how far it is?
[19:15] Shadowcaller: Between this place and the pumping station?
[19:15] Shadowcaller: If you go trought the pipes that os
[19:15] Shadowcaller: *is
[19:17] Hope: That is the question, yes.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: Well, the pipes seems to lead as directly to the pumping station as possible, so about… how long would you say it was between the pumping station and this lake walking distance?
[19:20] Hope: We went up steps and then ran for our lives, and then went down passages. So I don't think it was direct at all.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: Well the pipes are going directly to it
[19:21] Shadowcaller: I would say… 20 meters maybe?
[19:24] Hope: And how far down are the pipes underwater?
[19:24] Shadowcaller: 15 meters down
[19:25] Shadowcaller: More or less
[19:26] Hope: "I can see where it goes. Back to the room where we met the nymph. It's not as far as I feared, but probably too far for non-swimmers without some help."
[19:28] Shadowcaller: (I guess the pipes are really big here so the Lizardmen could swim between the lake and the pumping station.)
[19:32] Murska: Aegnor attempts to contact the nymph they met earlier. /Hello?/
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (Can you control it Happy?)
[19:32] Hope: (sure)
[19:33] Hope: /Did you want to play another game?/
[19:36] Murska: /We'd need some help./
[19:37] Hope: /Don't tell me where you are! That will spoil the game./
[19:38] Murska: /Can't we play afterwards?/
[19:39] Hope: /…. do you promise you will? /
[19:40] Murska: /I… I'm sorry, but I have things I have to do. Did you find your sisters?/
[19:41] Hope: /Oh. I forgot./
[19:42] Hope: /aha! I found you!/ "Hey, you went swimming" :)
[19:42] Hope: The latter part said as she sticks her head up out of the water.
[19:42] Hope: "You're not very good at hiding."
[19:44] Murska: 'Hey there.'
[19:44] Murska: (aaaand brb again)
[19:44] Murska: (someone else converse with her)
[19:45] Hope: (I'm not going to converse with myself >.> )
[19:45] Shadowcaller: (Not really sure what Michicora thinks of nymphs…)
[19:46] Hope: (we'll just wait for Murska. I need to get something to drink anyway)
[19:46] Shadowcaller: (yeah, she didn't say much the last conversation either.)
[19:47] Hope: (she never says much to anyone but Hope. And I doubt she'd do that if it hadn't been for the gate closing)
[19:47] Shadowcaller: (Indeed, Michicora only trusts Hope and Kuori really.)
[19:48] Murska: back
[19:48] Murska: (Okay, so. What exactly are we asking her anyway? :P
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (Its at least the only ones she would have a deep conversation with.)
[19:48] Hope: (Help getting out?)
[19:49] Murska: /Is there some way you could help us breathe underwater for longer?/
[19:50] Shadowcaller: (Or drag you up the passage.)
[19:50] Hope: /You can't breathe water?/
[19:50] Hope: (grrr… i hate trying to break into sealed things when Mr HT isn't home to help.)
[19:51] Hope: (finally! don't lock me out of mah ice cream!)
[19:51] Murska: /No, we only breathe air./
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (There is no greater force then happy trying to get inte her icecream:P)
[19:52] Hope: "Is that why the lady with the dress had living air with her?"
[19:52] Murska: (Now what happens when an unstoppable Happy meets an unreachable icecream…)
[19:53] Murska: /Not quite… that was for something else. I don't think we can breathe living air either./
[19:53] Murska: (Aegnor saw it choke the two dudes… :P)
[19:53] Hope: /But breathing water is easy! And it's so much nicer than air./
[19:54] Shadowcaller: (Do spirits even need to breath?)
[19:55] Hope: (I wouldn't be asking this particular one for details like that. She's not quite all there.)
[19:56] Shadowcaller: (I don't think she knows what we mean by "breathing" anyway.)
[19:56] Shadowcaller: (Cessie would have asked that at least:P)
[19:56] Murska: /It's different for us./
[19:56] Murska: /If we breathe water, we drown./
[19:57] Shadowcaller: (Ask her to pick up Aegnors stuff?)
[19:58] Murska: (Yeah)
[19:59] Hope: (also you should talk out loud so everyone can participate :P)
[19:59] Shadowcaller: /Greetings spirits./ (Jugan)
[19:59] Shadowcaller: */spirit./
[20:00] Murska: (It's just a more natural way of speech. The others get fragments of the conversation at times though. :P)
[20:00] Hope: "Where did the dress lady go?"
[20:01] Hope: Seren: "She went into the pyramid building. Do you know a way there?"
[20:01] Shadowcaller: (And I had to take that gigantic Arik/Cessie disscussion >.>)
[20:01] Hope: She looks confused. "Pyramid building?"
[20:02] Shadowcaller: (I have been talking more to myself then any of you:P)
[20:02] Murska: 'A large building… there should be a way there somehow from here.' /We have to find her!/
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (The underwater passage will lead to the well Cessie drank from before she went up to the stairs leading to the door where she had to pue her stone.)
[20:05] Shadowcaller: (How the water is so high there? magic!)
[20:05] Shadowcaller: (The artifact controlls all water levels.)
[20:05] Hope: (which Arik/Cessie discussion?)
[20:06] Hope: (and the artifact is about to be damaged… >.> )
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (When they disscussed necromancy remember?)
[20:06] Hope: (oh right)
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (pain!)
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (Well, hurry then.)
[20:08] Hope: "I can go find her. Do you want me to go find her?"
[20:10] Murska: 'Please… I need to know if… where she is.'
[20:10] Hope: She disappears.
[20:10] Hope: (where would Cessie have been at this time?)
[20:10] Shadowcaller: (She is inside the house now.)
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (Just entered.)
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (Or rather, she is resting just outside the circle.)
[20:12] Hope: (So the nymph won't be able to find her then >.> )
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (Nope, would she otherwise?)
[20:13] Hope: (if Cessie was within sight of any of the water, sure. She's very very good at hiding and seeking. ^^ )
[20:14] Shadowcaller: She returns without having seen her then i guess?
[20:16] Hope: /… She's good at hiding. I can't find her *anywhere*!/ :)
[20:16] Murska: Aegnor looks very worried. 'Oh…'
[20:17] Hope: She pops up out of the water soon after this.
[20:17] Hope: "Do you want to play too and help seek?"
[20:19] Murska: 'I do. Is there any way I could? I can't breathe water…'
[20:20] Hope: "If you swim with me, I can take you ever so fast."
[20:21] Hope: "You won't have time to drown."
[20:21] Murska: Aegnor has checked his stuff in the meanwhile. 'Good… But first, could you bring me something from the bottom of this lake? One of the swords.'
[20:22] Hope: She ducks underwater. A moment later she pops back up with it. "How did that get there?"
[20:24] Murska: 'I almost drowned.' He takes it and ties it onto him.
[20:24] Hope: "It's sad when people drown. They float back to the top, but they don't play anymore." :(
[20:26] Murska: 'True.'
[20:27] Murska: 'Cessie went to the pyramid so she would probably be upwards from here… Any way lead there?'
[20:27] Hope: "Can you take more than one person at a time?" Seren asks.
[20:28] Hope: "Not to the top of the big building. There's a skinny place and everyone wouldn't fit."
[20:28] Shadowcaller: /I will accompany you both…/
[20:29] Murska: 'One at a time then. You won't get tired, will you?'
[20:29] Hope: "There's one pool I can take you all to though. If everyone held hands."
[20:29] Hope: "It'll be fun." :)
[20:30] Shadowcaller: /I will be waiting for you, wherever you appear…/
[20:31] Shadowcaller: The small version of Jugan dissapears from Simones and Aegnors sight
[20:31] Shadowcaller: *sight
[20:31] Murska: 'Where is that?'
[20:32] Hope: "It's in the big building. But not at the top. It's at the bottom."
[20:33] Hope: "The pipes to the top are very skinny. I have to do this." She stretches up out of the water, and her shape elongates grotesquely
[20:33] Murska: 'Could you bring us to the top one by one?'
[20:33] Hope: "You can do that, right?"
[20:34] Murska: 'Nnno. I guess we're going to the pool.'
[20:35] Hope: "Yay!" She claps her hands. "Are you ready?"
[20:37] Shadowcaller: Michicora nods silently
[20:37] Murska: brb
[20:37] Murska: they get ready.
[20:39] Shadowcaller: Michcora looks suspiciosly at the nymph
[20:41] Shadowcaller: She dosen't directly take her hand
[20:41] Hope: Simone looks at her book. /Is this protected from water?/ she asks Helios.
[20:42] Shadowcaller: /Of course not, we want out ancient books filled with knowledge be destroyed by water./
[20:42] Shadowcaller: *our
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Sarcasm don't really suit him
[20:42] Murska: (/sarcasm)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: (Huh, I actually spelled that wrong.)
[20:44] Hope: /If person you make book for not ask for water protection, I'm sure you leave it out of the deal./
[20:45] Shadowcaller: /I don't even understand how you can even speak incorrectly by mind speak, but yes, thought Helia gave you the book didn't she? Its her book…/
[20:48] Hope: (bah. Player error, not Simone error.)
[20:48] Hope: Simone prepares to go then. As does Seren.
[20:48] Hope: Seren: "Could you get our shoes from the bottom before we go?"
[20:49] Hope: (his and Aegnors)
[20:50] Hope: She does so. Seren ties his shoes to his belt rather than put them on.
[20:51] Murska: Same.
[20:52] Hope: She takes Aegnor's hand, and instructs everyone else to hold hands in a chain.
[20:52] Hope: "Hold on tight!"
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Michicora dose so, but not the nymphs hand
[20:52] Shadowcaller: She mutters something about "Silly"
[20:52] Hope: (do all your characters hate nymphs :P )
[20:53] Shadowcaller: (Jugan likes them, and I was I who introduced them >.>)
[20:53] Hope: (Anyway, she took Aegnor's hand. And she doesn't want everyone in a circle, she wants a line)
[20:53] Hope: (I know. That's what makes it so funny)
[20:53] Murska: -.- brb and I gotta leave soonish.
[20:53] Shadowcaller: Aww.S
[20:54] Hope: Seren: "Simone, I think you should be at the end. We don't want to pull you to pieces."
[20:54] Shadowcaller: :S
[20:54] Hope: so nymph-Aegnor-(michicora/naib/seren)-simone. The internal order doesn't matter.
[20:54] Hope: She pulls them into the water and they are whooshed through it at incredible speed.
[20:55] Hope: Naib and Michicora probably find it quite disturbing.
[20:57] Shadowcaller: She dose
[20:58] Hope: But before anyone runs out of air, they pop up out of the water in a pool similar to the one where they first met the nymph. But this room has the feel of being designed for relaxation. There is warm light - uncomfortably warm - and there are many low stone benches, designed to be comfortable for reptilian anatomy.
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (Possibly the egg chambber…)
[20:59] Shadowcaller: *chamber
[20:59] Murska: Naib climbs out of the water and shakes some of it off him. (Sauna! Sauna!)
[20:59] Hope: (I was thinking the basking room, but egg chamber works too)
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (It could be both.)
[21:00] Hope: (and why they need a hot room when there's a desert just outside is anyone's guess. :P)
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (Desert is not very good for eggs, the desert is cold at night remember?)
[21:00] Hope: (I guess they wanted to be able to bask during sandstorms, or at night.)
[21:01] Hope: (yeah, but lots of reptiles manage fine by burying their eggs|)
[21:01] Hope: (but then again, intelligent reptiles would manage better.)
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (Mhm.)
[21:01] Hope: (they probably don't use the 'lay a zillion eggs because 90% of them won't survive to adulthood' method at this stage in their evolution)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, Heliots (or lizardmen) are very intelligent in fact.)
[21:03] Shadowcaller: (Heck the godess of knowledge was named after them, many years after their civilization had ended.)
[21:03] Murska: 'bout time for me to stop.
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (Okay, I guess we should continue tomorrow then. Unless we should finish the Cessie/Saranna conversation…)
[21:04] Hope: (I'm falling asleep too)
[21:04] Murska: I'm not. v.v
[21:05] Shadowcaller: ^^
[21:05] Murska: My god this lappy makes this room so darn hot
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Hehe, I know what you mean
[21:06] Hope: (At least they fixed the problem where batteries randomly caught fire)
[21:06] Shadowcaller: Thankfully I'm sitting at a place where I'm not going to sleep
[21:06] Shadowcaller: We got 4 cabins here
[21:06] Murska: I'm not gonna sleep here either
[21:07] Shadowcaller: 1 main where my parents sleep and we eat and stuff, 1 cabin for my sister, 1 for me and 1 for my brother
[21:07] Shadowcaller: Sitting in the main cabin right now
[21:07] Hope: (lol… canterbury just got retaken by the English again. I think that's the third time.)
[21:08] Shadowcaller: They can't make up their minds can they?
[21:08] Murska: poor city in ruins
[21:09] Shadowcaller: Oh, and the climat was a bit different here at the lizardmens time
[21:11] Shadowcaller: But lets all go to sleep now, we can continue later on:) What did you think of this session? >.>
[21:11] Murska: Nobody ever asked Aegnor what happened to him :P
[21:11] Murska: I had a neat response ready… ;)
[21:11] Hope: I love how three different GMs designed this.
[21:11] Hope: Well you kept going afk :P
[21:11] Murska: But Aegnor didn't. »
[21:12] Shadowcaller: Lets say they asked then?
[21:12] Hope: okay, well Simone asked then, sometime before the nymph showed up.
[21:12] Hope: Because you know she would have.
[21:13] Hope: even if her player gets even more forgetful than usual when lots of brbs happen
[21:13] Murska: Aegnor half-smiles. 'Hmm. I had to negotiate a bit and convinced myself that it's best to work with me rather than against me.'
[21:13] Shadowcaller: Yeah >.>
[21:15] Hope: (lolol… and Shaka took it back again. Good grief, what do they see in that pathetic city? It's 1 population!)
[21:15] Murska: (Well after so many conquests of course it is)
[21:16] Shadowcaller: (Maybe they think they can keep it?)
[21:16] Murska: (The fact that it keeps growing back to 2 before they take it makes it a good food-producer at least)=
[21:17] Hope: (when Shaka has it, he only has the single tile. It's on the border between the English and the Byzantine, so he doesn't own a tile anywhere near it. He's got a stack of 13 units sitting there though)
[21:18] Murska: Go conquer and raze it. :P
[21:19] Shadowcaller: Then they will destroy the one who doestroyed their beloved city >.>
[21:19] Hope: (bah. It's on the other side of the world. I just sent a guy there because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about)
[21:20] Murska: Aaanyway, Simone doesn't react?
[21:20] Hope: (I thought maybe it was the holy city of some religion or other, but nope. Nothing.)
[21:20] Hope: "Was that before or after you try to drown yourself?" *smile*
[21:21] Murska: 'In the while.'
[21:23] Murska: *hugs/poofs* bye
[21:24] Hope: She chuckles a little, but there's a shadow of a haunted expression in her eyes. "Don't do that again."
[21:24] Hope: *hugs*
[21:24] Shadowcaller: Bye
[21:24] Murska: 'Never.'
[21:24] Shadowcaller: *waves*
[21:24] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
