Exodus 40

Happy says (3:26 PM):
"Has someone prepared something nourishing for when he wakes up? He'll need something with fresh cooked meat instead of dried."
Shadowcaller says (3:28 PM):
"We don't have many fresh supplies I'm afraid…"
Shadowcaller says (3:29 PM):
"Most of our hunters are either taking care of the sick or are sick themselves."
Wolfbane says (3:30 PM):
Promise is starting to stir a bit in his sleep.
(If you don't mind that is)
Shadowcaller says (3:30 PM):
(of course not.)
Happy says (3:32 PM):
"Then if it's dried meat, it will need to be cooked slowly to tenderize it." Hope sees him stirring, and strokes his ears.
Shadowcaller says (3:34 PM):
"I will tell them that."
Wolfbane says (3:35 PM):
Promise starts to move and growl a bit in his sleep.
Happy says (3:35 PM):
"Shhh… it's okay love. You're safe." Hope murmurs.
Shadowcaller says (3:35 PM):
He looks back at the exit of the tent and then at Hope "Do you think you can manage on your onw for a while? I need to take a look at Kiam again."
Happy says (3:36 PM):
"Yes, thank you Dawnwatcher."
Shadowcaller says (3:37 PM):
He stands up and bows, then he leaves the tent
Wolfbane says (3:38 PM):
Promise suddenly sits up with a loud growl, and looks around, ready to fend off dwarves.
Happy says (3:39 PM):
Hope reaches for his shoulders, trying to put herself in his line of sight.
Wolfbane says (3:39 PM):
He actually looks kinda pitiful since all his fur is practically gone.
Wolfbane says (3:40 PM):
Promise breaks down crying after he notices Hope and where he is.
Happy says (3:41 PM):
She pulls him into an embrace.
Wolfbane says (3:42 PM):
Promise puts his arms around her and settles down after a while.
Happy says (3:44 PM):
"You came back to me."
Wolfbane says (3:47 PM):
" I did, but I tried to return sooner, and couldn't." He rubs his wounded shoulder.
Happy says (3:49 PM):
"Tell me how you are, what you need first. Food or a bath?"
Wolfbane says (3:50 PM):
Promise looks at his blood covered body. "Bath. Food can wait a while." (Even though he hasn't eaten in forever)
Happy says (3:52 PM):
"There's a stream leading to the oasis. Or I can heat water for you."
Wolfbane says (3:52 PM):
Promise tries to stand. "I think I can make it to the stream."
Happy says (3:57 PM):
Hope rummages through their belongings and makes a small pack with soap and a towel and clean clothing for each of them.
Happy says (3:59 PM):
She puts an arm around him, ready to support him if he needs it.
Wolfbane says (3:59 PM):
Promise moves a little stiffly, but only puts a little weight on her.
Happy says (4:02 PM):
She leads him out of the tent, where they are bound to draw attention.
Shadowcaller says (4:06 PM):
Michicora is standing outside, it looks like she's been standing there quite a while now. The villagers are just glancing at you, not really wanting to directly stare
Happy says (4:07 PM):
Hope smiles warmly at her. "Michicora, this is my mate, Promise. Promise, this is Michicora, Huntress of Kuori."
Shadowcaller says (4:07 PM):
She looks up, appearing quite nervous
Wolfbane says (4:08 PM):
Promise at Michicora. "It's nice to meet you. I apologize for surprising you earlier. I really had no other choice."
Wolfbane says (4:09 PM):
looks at*
Shadowcaller says (4:10 PM):
She seems to be studying Promise while still keeping her gaze down, suddenly she looks up, directly into Promises eyes "How did you come here?
Wolfbane says (4:11 PM):
(Well, normally when a girl wolfen and a boy wolfen love each other very much…)
Promise winces. "Helios."
Shadowcaller says (4:12 PM):
Wolfbane says (4:12 PM):
"Why did I come back, or why did he help me?"
Happy says (4:12 PM):
"I made a deal with Helios to bring him back," Hope says.
Wolfbane says (4:13 PM):
"And I had to make a deal so he would bring me back instantly instead of forcing me through the desert."
Shadowcaller says (4:13 PM):
Michicora nods, "What was the price?"
Wolfbane says (4:14 PM):
"His usual. A favor. But I was able to put limitations on it."
Shadowcaller says (4:15 PM):
She hisses, "Cursed pacts…"
Happy says (4:15 PM):
"No more questions. There will be time for that later," Hope says. "I need to get him cleaned and patched up. Healer's orders."
Shadowcaller says (4:16 PM):
"Need… help?"
Happy says (4:18 PM):
"Could you hunt some fresh meat?" Hope asks. "That will be a big help."
Shadowcaller says (4:19 PM):
"Yess…" Michicora replies with a drawn out voice
Wolfbane says (4:19 PM):
(In a good way or bad?)
Shadowcaller says (4:20 PM):
(What do you mean?)
Happy says (4:20 PM):
Hope reaches out her free hand and squeezes Michi's. "Thank you."
Wolfbane says (4:20 PM):
Wolfbane says (4:21 PM):
Promise nods. "Thank you."
Shadowcaller says (4:22 PM):
She squeeze back, holing it for some time before she reluctant lets it go "I will return…" She says as she hurries off in the distance with suprising speed
Wolfbane says (4:24 PM):
"Any other new people in our group?"
He says that as they continue on.
Shadowcaller says (4:27 PM):
(Wamt a description of Michicora? Not that it matters that much…)
Wolfbane says (4:27 PM):
(I've read other ones before)
Shadowcaller says (4:27 PM):
Wolfbane says (4:28 PM):
(And seen the picture)
Happy says (4:28 PM):
"You know most of the villagers. There was a group of slaves who escaped from Kyou and joined with us. A wizard named Saranna. And Suro-" her voice breaks. "Suroshian."
Wolfbane says (4:29 PM):
"What's wrong?"
Promise finally recognizes the tone. "Oh…"
Happy says (4:30 PM):
"I couldn't protect him, Promise. I'm sorry."
Wolfbane says (4:30 PM):
Promise hugs her. "Don't be."
Happy says (4:34 PM):
"I wanted to try and find you."
Wolfbane says (4:35 PM):
"I know. It was the same for me."
Happy says (4:37 PM):
"But you didn't have a choice. I chose to stay and protect the villagers." Her voice lowers, as they approach the stream.
Wolfbane says (4:39 PM):
Promise stops her and gives her a squeeze. "You had an obligation to them. Don't doubt or secondguess yourself. You did the right thing."
(And by squeeze, I mean hug)
Wolfbane says (4:43 PM):
(brb, I have to get dinner)
Shadowcaller says (4:50 PM):
The villagers are actually avoiding the pair as they don't really want to disturb their reunion. You can see them around you, going on their daily busniess
Happy says (4:51 PM):
(insanowar locations updated)
Shadowcaller says (4:54 PM):
You can't see many elves however
Happy says (4:54 PM):
(Shouldn't Cessie be running in soon, demanding to know Hope didn't tell her Promise was back? )
*to know why
Shadowcaller says (4:55 PM):
(She's in a grumpy mood right now, but she will come… be asured.)
Happy says (4:55 PM):
(Grumpy why?)
Shadowcaller says (4:56 PM):
(I think she's slighlty nervous to see Promise again for some reason, but then again, she feel uncomfortable with all wolfen.)
Happy says (4:56 PM):
(because her player hasn't given her any attention for a few days? Has she learned a spell to see past the 4th wall? ^^ )
Shadowcaller says (4:56 PM):
(And she just is grumpy, she woke up with that mood.)
Shadowcaller says (4:57 PM):
(Besides, the Kyou plot was way longer…)
Wolfbane says (5:00 PM):
Shadowcaller says (5:00 PM):
The weather is as most common cloudless, the sun is still high, despite the fact that its afternoon
Shadowcaller says (5:02 PM):
Promise and Hope can feel the wind coming from the southeast, a welcome relif against the unmerciful yellow ball up there
Happy says (5:04 PM):
(cut to someone else until Wolfie is back?)
(oh, there you are)
Wolfbane says (5:04 PM):
Happy says (5:05 PM):
Hope leads Promise down to the water's edge, where the rocky terrain gives a bit of shade and privacy.
Wolfbane says (5:05 PM):
Promise follows as best he can.
Happy says (5:07 PM):
She stands close to him and very carefully begins to remove his clothing, making sure it isn't caught on any wounds
Wolfbane says (5:10 PM):
Promise helps take off his clothes and enters the water to clean all of the blood off of himself.
Happy says (5:11 PM):
Hope peels her own clothes off, and joins him in the water.
Happy says (5:15 PM):
Wolfbane says (5:15 PM):
(Sorry, someone asked me a question)
Wolfbane says (5:17 PM):
She'll probably see even more scars when some of the blood washes away, but Promise smiles at her when he sees her in the water. "Its nice to be back. Even as I am now."
Happy says (5:18 PM):
She takes the soap and begins to wash his back. "I have to admit, you have looked better."
Wolfbane says (5:20 PM):
Promise keeps smiling at her. "And you still look as beautiful as I remember."
Happy says (5:22 PM):
She blushes, and ducks her head, her braids falling to hide her face.
Wolfbane says (5:24 PM):
Promise sinks lower into the water to get cleaner and to try and look her in the eyes. "Really, you do." He says in all seriousness.
"Perhaps even more so."
Happy says (5:27 PM):
She just looks back into his eyes, almost mesmerized.
Wolfbane says (5:28 PM):
Promise stands and puts his arms around her, nuzzling her neck.
Happy says (5:31 PM):
She holds him as well, pressed up against him as tightly as she can without hurting him, and planting kisses wherever she can reach.
Wolfbane says (5:34 PM):
Promise tries to give her a light nip on her neck, but stop when he remembers that several of his teeth and are gone. He sighs and just tries to hold Hope.
Happy says (5:35 PM):

Wolfbane says (5:36 PM):
Wolfbane says (5:39 PM):
Happy says (5:40 PM):
Hope continues to wash him, occasionally letting her fingers drift to places she knows he likes to be touched, but not pushing him. She doesn't know if he's physically or mentally up for more, and for now it's enough for her just to have him in her arms.
Wolfbane says (5:44 PM):
Promise suddenly breaks down again after a moment of contact.
Happy says (5:44 PM):
She just holds him and cries with him.
Wolfbane says (5:46 PM):
"I-I'm sorry. I-I just feel so useless right now."
Happy says (5:46 PM):
Shadowcaller says (5:47 PM):
/Hope? Whats going on? Shadow told me I should ask you for some reason/ Cessies voice rings in your head, disturbing this special moment a bit.
Wolfbane says (5:47 PM):
(Promise already disturbed it)
Wolfbane says (5:48 PM):
Happy says (5:48 PM):
"In light and shadows, for the rest of our days, remember?" Hope says softly to him.
/Cessie, Promise is home./
Happy says (5:49 PM):
Cessie will feel the juxtoposition of great sorrow and great joy in Hope's mental state.
Wolfbane says (5:50 PM):
Promise smiles at the memory and wipes the tears away. "Its just that I can't even hold you without breaking down and.." He looks at where his claws were and sighs. "But I'm happy to be back."
Shadowcaller says (5:52 PM):
/He's home? How…/ There is a pause /I'm so glad for you./
Happy says (5:52 PM):
Happy says (5:53 PM):
"We're together. Does anything else matter, really?"
She claps her hand with his paw as she says that.
Shadowcaller says (5:54 PM):
/How is he? How long… are you okay?/ Cessies sounds like she have millions of questions, but not really sure if she wants to ask all of them
Wolfbane says (5:54 PM):
Promise squeezes her hand. "Of course not."
Happy says (5:56 PM):
/He's wounded, but we're okay./
"Do you want to talk about what happened to you? You don't have to."
Shadowcaller says (5:58 PM):
/Where are you? Aegnor is still asleep, I… can I met him?/
Wolfbane says (5:58 PM):
Promise shakes his head. "I'll tell you. I promised myself I wouldn't keep secrets from you."
Happy says (6:00 PM):
/In a little while. I need to treat his wounds first./
Shadowcaller says (6:03 PM):
/I understand, take your time, both of you./
Happy says (6:04 PM):
/Thank you/ Hope closes the mental conversation.
Happy says (6:05 PM):
She smiles at Promise. "Cessie is anxious to see you. She was just in my head asking about you."
Wolfbane says (6:10 PM):
Promise chuckles. "Its nice to know I was missed by more than just you." The smile drops and he looks down. "For the past few weeks…(He basically tells her that the dwarves tortured and the wizard experimenting on him. Then he tells her about the prison break and Helios)
Happy says (6:10 PM):
She listens attentively. At the appropriate time, she asks, "But how did you get there, from the spirit realm?"
Wolfbane says (6:16 PM):
"After Aegnor went through, the gate closed. Hakari said I had to stabalize it. I honestly don't know how long it took. Just that it was a long time. I lost my spear in the process and it took longer to get back. Hakari then agreed to send me though to the closest place where you were. And I guess I was blacked out by it or something, because the next thing I noticed was being taken into the
(He doesn't realize that he stayed a /very/ long time in the spirit realm)
Wolfbane says (6:18 PM):
(Does that work?)
Shadowcaller says (6:18 PM):
Wolfbane says (6:19 PM):
(I have yet to think of the events that happened to and from stabalizing the gate
Shadowcaller says (6:19 PM):
(Take your time, its your story.)
Wolfbane says (6:19 PM):
(Other than killing a few Harpies to get them to back off)
Shadowcaller says (6:20 PM):
(Just remember that the beings in the deep realm are very powerful/strange.)
Happy says (6:20 PM):
not the harpies! D=
Happy says (6:21 PM):
While he's telling his story, Hope leads him back out of the water and carefully pats him dry.
Wolfbane says (6:21 PM):
(I still say we should have done it so Promise returned in Saltcross and when the party finds him, all the guards are beaten and locked up in a cell while he sings a lewd Wolfen song and carving his name into the desk. =P)
Happy says (6:21 PM):
Wolfbane says (6:22 PM):
(And all the guards would have groaned when they recognized the party)

Promise lets Hope help him and he helps her in turn.
Wolfbane says (6:23 PM):
(But I didn't see that one as realistic to the setting at all or could think of a way for it to happen)
Shadowcaller says (6:24 PM):
(Well… yeah >.>)
Wolfbane says (6:25 PM):
Meanwhile… Caster's tower is being overrun by rabid wombats
Happy says (6:29 PM):
Hope has her healing supplies with her, and she treats his wounds, with herbal and magical means.
Wolfbane says (6:31 PM):
Promise relaxes as his wounds are treated.
Happy says (6:33 PM):
"When the gate closed, the spirits in this world went mad. We had to fight our way into Kyou in order to open the gate again. In all the confusion, there was a coup against the emperor. We decided that we'd never have a better opportunity to get the villagers to a new place."
Shadowcaller says (6:34 PM):
(The gods? Helios deal? Alegias?
Wolfbane says (6:35 PM):
Promise nods in understanding.
Happy says (6:36 PM):
(this is the short version. He gets the long version later)
Shadowcaller says (6:36 PM):
(Of course…)
Happy says (6:40 PM):
"Michicora is a Servant of Kuori. She was the one sent to judge Zubera. When Aegnor returned without you, and the gate closed, we were both heartbroken. Her connection to Kuori was cut off completely. I think I got through the worst of those first awful days because she needed me."
Wolfbane says (6:41 PM):
Promise hugs her. "I'll have to thank her when I get time."
Happy says (6:43 PM):
Presumably they're dressed by now? "Let's get back. You must be starving."
Wolfbane says (6:44 PM):
They are. "Very much so, but I couldn't risk the cuts being infected."

Aegnor has been added to the conversation.

Wolfbane says (6:47 PM):
Happy says (6:49 PM):
(How much was Hope able to heal of his wounds, SC? She used about half her healing strength.)
Shadowcaller says (6:49 PM):
(Err… Murska can decide that, he invented the power.)
Shadowcaller says (6:50 PM):
(*suspects that he isn't here* She healed his leg.)
(The great wound from the bolt that is.)
Happy says (6:51 PM):
All the wounds will have to be healed before she tries to hasten fur or claw growth. And she isn't sure about whether she can do anything for his teeth, since they aren't something the body naturally heals.
Wolfbane says (6:52 PM):
(Wolfen only grow one set of fangs. and two sets of other teeth, but he was well past having the second set)
Shadowcaller says (6:55 PM):
(So, what are they doing?)
Wolfbane says (6:55 PM):
(Heading back to get some food)
Happy says (6:55 PM):
They return to the camp
Shadowcaller says (6:56 PM):
There are a bit less people around her now, but you can catch casual glances from almost everyone you pass.
Wolfbane says (6:56 PM):
Promise walks easier than before.
Shadowcaller says (6:57 PM):
Hope can notice Cessie waiting for them in the middle of the camp, she seems lost in thought as so many other times before
Happy says (6:58 PM):
She looks to see if any food has been prepared for Promise.
Shadowcaller says (6:59 PM):
(You can't see any food alying around in the middle of the camp, no.)
Happy says (7:00 PM):
(*stabs lurking Murska*)
Aegnor says (7:00 PM):
Happy says (7:00 PM):
(how about Aegnor wakes up now?)
Aegnor says (7:00 PM):
Happy says (7:02 PM):
Hope and Promise walk towards Cessie then.
Shadowcaller says (7:02 PM):
SHe looks down the ground, not really *there*
Happy says (7:02 PM):
Shadowcaller says (7:06 PM):
Cessie seems to hear your voice and look up, she appears quite suprised as her eyes settle on Promise "Promise- I… I don't know what to say really." She takes a few steps towards him "Welcome back I guess, I feel a bit overwhelmed to see you again honestly."
Wolfbane says (7:07 PM):
Promise chuckles and smiles. "I'd hug you, but I'm not sure how you would take it, so thanks."
Shadowcaller says (7:09 PM):
"Ehh… it's okay. It looks like a hug would hurt you in your condition." She smiles slightly and titles her head a bit to the left
Wolfbane says (7:10 PM):
Promise laughs and gives her a quick hug. "Its good to be back."
Shadowcaller says (7:12 PM):
She's dressed in her black robe again, it do look quite outwashed however, its color faded. Cessie appears a bit shocked by your sudden hug but accepts it calmly, hugging him back with a bit shaky arms "Yes, it will be good to have you back Promise."
Wolfbane says (7:13 PM):
Promise lets go.
Happy says (7:13 PM):
(*has a snake slither across Aegnor's face to wake him up* )
Shadowcaller says (7:14 PM):
So dose she, "How is it?…" There is a short paus before she adds, "With the wounds I mean."
Wolfbane says (7:15 PM):
Promise shrugs. "The wounds aren't too bad anymore. But the fangs and claws hurt the most."
Shadowcaller says (7:16 PM):
"Oh…" She replies as her eyes are drawn to his claws, noticing them for the first time
Wolfbane says (7:16 PM):
(Well, where the claws would be)
"How is Aegnor?"
If I drop suddenly, lightning caused a poweroutage
Shadowcaller says (7:17 PM):
(They are not gone, just filed down.)
Shadowcaller says (7:18 PM):
"He's still sleeping… its a long story really. About as long as yours to be sure."
Aegnor says (7:18 PM):
Happy says (7:18 PM):
(they'd better just be filed down… if they'd declawed her Promise, Hope wouldn't leave two stones standing in that city.)
Aegnor says (7:19 PM):
(And she would otherwise? Oo)
Shadowcaller says (7:19 PM):
(Right… realistically speakering…)
Happy says (7:20 PM):
"I'm going to go see where some food it," Hope says, and squeezes Promise's paw.
Happy says (7:21 PM):
She goes to look at whatever places food is normally prepared.
Wolfbane says (7:21 PM):
Promise squeezes back and lets her go.
Shadowcaller says (7:21 PM):
There is some dried food being tenderized there
Happy says (7:22 PM):
She thanks whoever is doing the work, and tastes a bite of it to see if she thinks Promise will be able to chew it
Shadowcaller says (7:23 PM):
There are some jerk meat that is already finished, but she have to wait for more
Wolfbane says (7:24 PM):
Promise's smile fades after Hope leaves. "Cessie, sometime later, I need to ask you a few things. A few wizards did something to me, and I'd like to find out what it was if possible."
Shadowcaller says (7:26 PM):
"You may ask me anything you like, but remember that I'm just a mere apprentice compared to most wizards."
Shadowcaller says (7:27 PM):
"Where were you exactly?"
Wolfbane says (7:27 PM):
"A prison."
"It was dwarven, in the side of a mountain."
Happy says (7:27 PM):
She takes whatever is ready, as well as some broth, and returns to Promise with it.
Shadowcaller says (7:28 PM):
"Oh… I'm sorry Promise, that must have been terrible…"
Wolfbane says (7:28 PM):
"Its better now that I am back."
Shadowcaller says (7:29 PM):
"Yes, of course. But how did you end up in a prison, if you don't mind if I'm asking…"
Shadowcaller says (7:30 PM):
Hope returns to them with some tenderized meat as well as some broth
Wolfbane says (7:30 PM):
"All I remember after the spirit realm was waking up in a cell."
Shadowcaller says (7:31 PM):
"Not much of a memory…" Cessie quietly comments
Wolfbane says (7:31 PM):
(he blacked out during the transition back)
Happy says (7:31 PM):
"Come, sit down. Cessie, is Aegnor awake? Does he know?"
Shadowcaller says (7:32 PM):
She shakes her head, "No, still sleeping like a baby. I did try to wake him up…"
"…but no luck."
Happy says (7:34 PM):
She tries to lead Promise somewhere that he can sit and eat.
Wolfbane says (7:34 PM):
Promise follows
Shadowcaller says (7:35 PM):
Cessie looks around a bit and then follows them.
Happy says (7:36 PM):
Hope gives him his food.
Wolfbane says (7:37 PM):
Promise tries to keep from eating too fast, but its kind of obvious that he hasn't had decent food in a while.
Shadowcaller says (7:40 PM):
"So… what happend?"
Happy says (7:41 PM):
Hope relates the story so that Promise can focus on eating.
Wolfbane says (7:41 PM):
Promise retells the story as he told it to Hope.
He is already done
Shadowcaller says (7:43 PM):
"Thats… wow, he actually transported you her by magic?" She raises an eyebrown
Wolfbane says (7:44 PM):
Promise shrugs. "I don't know."
Shadowcaller says (7:46 PM):
"Well, your here right? That should not even be possible… its breaking Mordekans law of meteria shift…"
"He used a orb? Did he tell you what it was?"
Wolfbane says (7:47 PM):
(Did he?)
Shadowcaller says (7:48 PM):
(He told him it was a very rare type of orb able to use enormous amounts of energy that no wizard could summon.)
Wolfbane says (7:48 PM):
He says that
Shadowcaller says (7:49 PM):
"Hm, no one ever told me such things even existed…"
Shadowcaller says (7:52 PM):
"That Carnian, she absorbed magic you said?"
Wolfbane says (7:52 PM):
Shadowcaller says (7:54 PM):
She looks doubius "And cast spells?"
Wolfbane says (7:54 PM):
He nods.
Shadowcaller says (7:55 PM):
"Wow… you were very lucky to find her, but her abilities do sound kind of dangerous. And now Helios have her under his command…"
Wolfbane says (7:57 PM):
Promise shrugs. "Maybe, but I don't think he'll manipulate her too much."
Shadowcaller says (7:59 PM):
"Your talking about Helios here, your deal could end badly you know. He can basically damand you to do anything."
"And she didn't even put up limits on her deal."
Wolfbane says (7:59 PM):
Promise smiles wryly. "Not really. He slipped up on my end."
Happy says (8:00 PM):
"I'll go with you, of course. Whatever mission he sends you on."
Shadowcaller says (8:02 PM):
"Well, I still think its a huge possibility what he can do with that deal. But I suppose I won't need to worry about that for now…"
Wolfbane says (8:02 PM):
"Maybe, but I still think I won out if he did what I think."
Wolfbane says (8:03 PM):
Shadowcaller says (8:03 PM):
She smiles "What did you do?"
Wolfbane says (8:06 PM):
Promise grins. "Througout all of our haggling over my deal, he slipped. I agreed to do a /favor/ not a geas. And if he put one on me, then he broke his end and is indebted to me."
Shadowcaller says (8:07 PM):
"Hehe, sounds like quite the hole."
Wolfbane says (8:07 PM):
(I'm proud of that. ^^)
Wolfbane says (8:09 PM):
"/And/ while he may have meant physical harm in the deal, he never said which kind, so I am going to say it was emotional, physical, or spiritual harm to anyone said in the deal."
Promise is quite proud of himself.
Happy says (8:09 PM):
"How can we tell if he put a geas on you?"
Wolfbane says (8:10 PM):
Promise shrugs. "I think it will become apparent when he asks me to help."
Happy says (8:12 PM):
"If you do have to go on a mission, I will go with you, of course."
Wolfbane says (8:12 PM):
Promise squeezes Hope's hand. "I wouldn't have it any other way."
Shadowcaller says (8:17 PM):
(hehe… you will see…
Happy says (8:19 PM):
(well if the favor is 'do this mission but leave hope behind' then that's two things and not one.)
Shadowcaller says (8:20 PM):
(Oh, its nothing like that…)
Aegnor says (8:20 PM):
(Not to mention leaving Hope behind is emotional harm)
(Then there's 'moral harm'
(If he has to do something against Cessie's morals maybe? )
Wolfbane says (8:20 PM):
(Promise really did come out on top that time)
Shadowcaller says (8:20 PM):
(You have no idea what helios is going to ask for you )
Aegnor says (8:21 PM):
(But he can pretty much decide whether or not he complies.)
Shadowcaller says (8:21 PM):
(How so?)
Wolfbane says (8:21 PM):
(He never agreed to a geas, just to a favor)
Shadowcaller says (8:21 PM):
(Yes, a favor he must do.)
(Otherwise he breaks the deal, and its void.)
Wolfbane says (8:21 PM):
(Unless Helios put a Geas on him)
Wolfbane says (8:22 PM):
( And knowing Helios, he would have)
Shadowcaller says (8:22 PM):
(Technically, a geas would be outside the deal altogether.)
Happy says (8:22 PM):
(anyway… no sense arguing about it before it occurs)
Aegnor says (8:22 PM):
(He must do a favour. Some day.)
Happy says (8:22 PM):
"How are you feeling? Too tired?"
Wolfbane says (8:23 PM):
(That a hint?)
( )
Aegnor says (8:23 PM):
(But he can decide whether or not he accepts pretty much anything.)
Happy says (8:23 PM):
(no, not yet. I still want AEGNOR TO WAKE UP)
Aegnor says (8:23 PM):
Aegnor says (8:24 PM):
(It's not like anyone needs him anywhere)
Wolfbane says (8:24 PM):
Promise shakes his head. "I think it would probably be better if I kept moving. That way I don't get stiff."
Shadowcaller says (8:24 PM):
(Not really… but you will see.)
Aegnor says (8:25 PM):
(Eh, so. Aegnor wakes up?)
Happy says (8:25 PM):
Aegnor says (8:25 PM):
(He goes 'dude, there's nobody here.' and falls asleep again)
( )
Shadowcaller says (8:26 PM):
(Might fall asleep soon >.>)
Aegnor says (8:26 PM):
(What condition is he in?)
Shadowcaller says (8:26 PM):
(Happy decides…)
Shadowcaller says (8:27 PM):
(Also, a geas can't be placed upon someone who don't agree with its conditions.)
Happy says (8:27 PM):
It's been a few days. He's feeling almost normal again. Just a bit tired.
(really? then why did you say Helios was putting a geas on everyone who was in his realm that day without their knowledge?)
Shadowcaller says (8:27 PM):
(Yes, they agreed.)
Shadowcaller says (8:28 PM):
(They promised him one thing, and he bound that promise with a geas.)
Aegnor says (8:28 PM):
(Agreeing meaning words, in which case words have magical power somehow, or in mind, because Aegnor was just lying anyway)
Happy says (8:28 PM):
(but before they agreed, you said he was doing it anyway)
Shadowcaller says (8:28 PM):
(lies don't acually affect it…)
Shadowcaller says (8:29 PM):
(I did? Well, that would not work…)
Aegnor says (8:29 PM):
(So, er, someone goes sarcastically 'yeah, /sure/ I'll go clean your toilet for you' and the other *geas* ha ha)
Shadowcaller says (8:30 PM):
(Yeah, basically. If they are stupid enough to say that while a mage is binding them with a geas.)
Aegnor says (8:30 PM):
(Why do words have magical power?)
Shadowcaller says (8:31 PM):
(I don't know, its just something I made up, otherwise a geas would be pretty useless if you can lie.)
Happy says (8:32 PM):
(bah. no 'how magic works' discussion in the roleplay window. make another chat for that.)
Aegnor says (8:32 PM):
(Well, it doesn't work if the one being bound doesn't agree to it makes sense, but only if he actually agrees to it and doesn't just make random noises with his mouth while he in fact resists it)
Shadowcaller says (8:32 PM):
Shadowcaller says (8:33 PM):
(Lets disscuss it while I'm less tired.)
Happy says (8:33 PM):
Anyway… Aegnor wakes up
Aegnor says (8:33 PM):
He looks around, sees nobody, gets up and equipped.
Shadowcaller says (8:36 PM):
(sec… can you gm this happy?)
Happy says (8:40 PM):
When he steps out of the tent, he can sense that the atmosphere of the village has changed.
Almost as if something interesting had occured while he was asleep…
Aegnor says (8:41 PM):
He looks around for a moment and decides to head somewhere to get food.
Wolfbane says (8:45 PM):
Happy says (8:46 PM):
At the food preparation area, he sees some Wolfen tenderizing the dried meat.
Shadowcaller says (8:46 PM):
changing computer…

Shadowcaller has left the conversation.

Shadowcaller has been added to the conversation.

Wolfbane says (8:47 PM):
There you go
Aegnor says (8:48 PM):
He politely asks for some food.
Happy says (8:49 PM):
"Here you go, Sir," a smiling wolfen woman says. "I'm sure you're very happy at the news."
Aegnor says (8:50 PM):
'…sorry, I just woke up… news?'
Happy says (8:51 PM):
"About Promise. He's returned."
Aegnor says (8:52 PM):
He blinks. 'Really? That's great!'
Happy says (8:53 PM):
"You really didn't know?"
Aegnor says (8:54 PM):
'I've been sleeping a lot lately… Where is he?'
Happy says (8:56 PM):
"Hope just came to get food for him, and went that way." She points.
Aegnor says (8:57 PM):
'Thanks!' He turns and heads that way to try and find them.
Happy says (8:57 PM):
And soon enough, he finds them sitting together with Cessie in one of the camp's common areas.
Aegnor says (8:58 PM):
'Hey!' He waves at them the moment he spots them.
Wolfbane says (8:59 PM):
Promise turns towards him and grins. "Finally! I was wondering when you'd come around."
Shadowcaller says (9:01 PM):
Cessie turns toward him "Your up… how are you feeling Aegnor? We all have a lot to tell you…"
Aegnor says (9:01 PM):
'I'm sure you do.' He smiles and turns to Promise. 'When'd you get here?'
Wolfbane says (9:02 PM):
(early morning?)
Wolfbane says (9:03 PM):
"Early morning I think."
Shadowcaller says (9:03 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:04 PM):
(where is Simone anyway?)
Aegnor says (9:04 PM):
'And… what's happened to you anyway?' Oo
Wolfbane says (9:04 PM):
Promise is feeling extremely better because of the food, bath, company, and having all of the freakouts out of his system for the day.
Happy says (9:05 PM):
(um… somewhere studying her book, I guess, so missed the excitement?)
Wolfbane says (9:05 PM):
Promise tells his story again.
Happy says (9:05 PM):
Hope sits with her arm around him as he speaks.
Wolfbane says (9:06 PM):
Promise can tell it without pausing now and he keeps his arm around Hope.
Happy says (9:06 PM):
At some point during the narrative, Simone joins the circle of listeners, which probably includes some of the villagers too.
Aegnor says (9:07 PM):
Aegnor is silent for a moment.
Wolfbane says (9:08 PM):
"But, on the otherhand, I am back, recovering, and I think I have tricked Helios for once."
Aegnor says (9:08 PM):
He half-smiles at this, looking like he isn't really paying attention.
Shadowcaller says (9:11 PM):
/Simone? Are you aware?/ Its Helios voice inside her head
Happy says (9:12 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:12 PM):
/Make s circle and call me, I have something to share with all of you./
Happy says (9:13 PM):
/All of us? Who does this include?/
Shadowcaller says (9:13 PM):
/whoever hunts the worm…/
