Exodus 46

Shadowcaller says (12:13 PM):
I don't know
After a few days the group and the villagers can see the black mountains rise in the horizion
Shadowcaller says (12:16 PM):
More days pass and the landscape starts to change around us. The desert turns into a more rocky, dry grassland environment. Soon enough we pass a small river where we can fill our water supplies
The water is suprisingly cold
Aegnor says (12:17 PM):
it's water = it's cold
Shadowcaller says (12:18 PM):
Yes, but there is different levels of cold… and this was colder then you thought it would be for being this close to a desert
Aegnor says (12:18 PM):
It comes from the mountains
Shadowcaller says (12:18 PM):
You can't know that
Aegnor says (12:18 PM):
Well where then? we're in desert bordering mountains?
Aegnor says (12:19 PM):
Does it come from the lake perhaps? No wait, there is none
Shadowcaller says (12:20 PM):
Anyway… on the fourth day we can see a wild herd of horses nearby. They don't seems to pay much attention to the group however, as long as we keep our distance.
Shadowcaller says (12:23 PM):
Shadow finds a cadavar of a horse the very same day. Its a hole in its stomach and it looks like something have eaten everything inside it. Its just pack of skin and bones
Wolfbane says (12:23 PM):
(I swear, if we face acidic blooded aliens…)
Happy says (12:23 PM):
Shadowcaller says (12:26 PM):
The journey goes on, the landspace becomes inceasingly less flat and more rocky. But is still dominated by open now more grassy plains with rivers supplying them with water. You see more herds and also a few more cadavers such as the one shadow found, but not any signs of what could have killed them.
Wolfbane says (12:27 PM):
Even by scent?
Shadowcaller says (12:27 PM):
It smells dead horse, nothing else
A less dominate smell could easily have hidden itself
Aegnor says (12:27 PM):
(I think 'something's eaten it's insides' is a good sign of cause of death)
Happy says (12:27 PM):
Maybe we should try and bring in a few horses to help out the villagers.
Shadowcaller says (12:28 PM):
(Yes, but what creature that may have cuased it.)
Happy says (12:28 PM):
Aegnor can tame them, right?
Shadowcaller says (12:28 PM):
(Um, he could call smaller animals.)
(Not sure about large ones however.)
Wolfbane says (12:29 PM):
(For some reason, I can't see your picture Happy)
Aegnor says (12:29 PM):
(Well he can tame deer)
(at leasT)
Happy says (12:29 PM):
Shadowcaller says (12:30 PM):
You may try then
But you will have to RP it
Aegnor says (12:30 PM):
(My alttabbing is bugging »
(And I'll have to go chop wood soon)
Shadowcaller says (12:31 PM):
(I see…)
Aegnor says (12:31 PM):
Well, Aegnor looks out for opportunities such as horses which have gotten a bit separated
Happy says (12:32 PM):
We continue on, then. Hope carries Goldie quite a bit of the time.
Wolfbane says (12:32 PM):
Goldie falls asleep a lot of the time when carried. Promise will probably offer to carry her too.
Happy says (12:33 PM):
Hope won't let him until his shoulder wound is completely healed.
Shadowcaller says (12:34 PM):
There are two horses that are a bit separated from the others yes. (How much do Aegnor know about horses?)
Aegnor says (12:35 PM):
(not much)
Wolfbane says (12:35 PM):
Then Promise will carry Hope's things, regardless if she protests or not.
Shadowcaller says (12:36 PM):
(How many horses have he seen?)
Shadowcaller says (12:37 PM):
(Before this moment that is.)
(Not any specific number…)
Aegnor says (12:37 PM):
(I dunno how many the tree had)
Shadowcaller says (12:37 PM):
(Not any…)
Aegnor says (12:37 PM):
(Then only a few)
Shadowcaller says (12:38 PM):
He can see two horses being slightly separated from the herd
One of them looks rather big
Shadowcaller says (12:39 PM):
Stomach big that is
Happy says (12:39 PM):
(I guess Peya had her baby before we left.)
Aegnor says (12:39 PM):
Assuming they don't need pregnant horses for pulling things…
Shadowcaller says (12:39 PM):
(She did? o.O)
Shadowcaller says (12:40 PM):
So, what dose Aegnor do?
Aegnor says (12:40 PM):
How early on in his watch is this? Does he think this is a rare opportunity?
Shadowcaller says (12:41 PM):
Its early in the morning
Not sure how that works with his watch, you decide
Happy says (12:42 PM):
(She was due any time. If she didn't have it before they left, then she's had it by now.)
Aegnor says (12:42 PM):
(Well, how many days has he searched for a horse separation now?)
Shadowcaller says (12:42 PM):
(They saw their first herd 3 days ago.)
Aegnor says (12:43 PM):
He figures it's probably best to wait for a better opportunity, but continues observing them.
Wolfbane says (12:44 PM):
(I'm off to class, see you in a few hours)
Shadowcaller says (12:44 PM):
There seems to be some panic among the larger herd. As one horse suddenly collapses, the rest of them run away in panic. The two you saw decides to follow along with its herd
Wolfbane says (12:44 PM):
Happy says (12:45 PM):
*hugs wolfie8
Wolfbane says (12:45 PM):
Shadowcaller says (12:45 PM):
(Bye >.>)
Aegnor says (12:45 PM):
Any separated ones?
Shadowcaller says (12:46 PM):
Except the one that fell down? Not really, they are all running in the same general direction
WHich is away from the fallen horse
Aegnor says (12:48 PM):
no point in running after horses.
Shadowcaller says (12:48 PM):
Aegnor says (12:48 PM):
He looks at the fallen horse from afar
Shadowcaller says (12:49 PM):
He can see something long and red slowly approach the fallen horse
It looks like a gigantic carterpillar
Shadowcaller says (12:50 PM):
Shadowcaller says (12:52 PM):
He notices how it somehow dissapear into the horse
Shadowcaller says (12:53 PM):
He would guess it was about 1,5 meters long
Aegnor says (12:55 PM):
he just watches
Shadowcaller says (12:55 PM):
Nothing really happends, its hard to see any details for this distance
Shadowcaller says (12:57 PM):
Cessie is keeping herself in her tent most of the time, but as the general weather changes, she stays outside more and more
Shadowcaller says (1:00 PM):
Its more cloudly, while it haven't rained yet. It looks like it might any moment from now.
Aegnor says (1:00 PM):
Maybe I should tame us a giant caterpillar
Happy says (1:00 PM):
do eeeet!
Shadowcaller says (1:02 PM):
What is Hope and Simone doing?
Aegnor says (1:03 PM):
Aegnor totally takes out his kazoo and starts playing to the caterpillar then
Shadowcaller says (1:03 PM):
I guess he approaches the dead horse first?
Aegnor says (1:04 PM):
He goes a bit closer but first tries just to see if it even has hearing.
Shadowcaller says (1:04 PM):
Like how?
Aegnor says (1:05 PM):
By playing music to it?
Shadowcaller says (1:07 PM):
As he appearches the horse he can see how something /moves/ within it. It looks like parts of it already have been eaten. Its mouth seems to have been forced wide open and much of its head is already gone.
Shadowcaller says (1:08 PM):
Shadowcaller says (1:09 PM):
Aegnor starts playing his flute and suddenly the carterpillar creature emerges, right throught the horses stomach. The smell is undescriable
It actually feels a bit hard to breath
Aegnor says (1:10 PM):
I'm not THAT close
Shadowcaller says (1:10 PM):
(Maybe you should have specified? >.>)
Aegnor says (1:11 PM):
(I specified 'I am far away' and then 'I go just a little bit closer'
Shadowcaller says (1:12 PM):
The cartepillar creature slowly moves closer to you
Aegnor says (1:14 PM):
Does it seem to be affected?
Shadowcaller says (1:14 PM):
It just moves closer actually
Shadowcaller says (1:16 PM):
Suddenly it rises from the ground to quite an impressive length, its now about 6 meters way
Aegnor says (1:17 PM):
He retreats quickly.
And keeps playing, trying to make it sleep
Shadowcaller says (1:18 PM):
It slowly gets back to the ground again, stopping
Shadowcaller says (1:19 PM):
(Done with taming horses? )
Aegnor says (1:21 PM):
if we can get a caterpillar to carry stuff
why use a horse?
Aegnor examines it a bit, without going closer than 1,5m
Shadowcaller says (1:22 PM):
It looks pretty much as the image, it have a large bulk which must be from all the horse flesh it have consumed.
It dosen't move thankfully
Happy says (1:24 PM):
(how would we feed it?)
Shadowcaller says (1:24 PM):
(And how do you take it with you?)
Aegnor says (1:25 PM):
It'll eat horses
and travel inside their stomaches?
anyway, Aegnor calls anyone who wants to check it out
Happy says (1:26 PM):
Simone will come and look.
"Ewww… it smells worse than anything!"
Shadowcaller says (1:26 PM):
Cessie is not really intrested if he descripes it before he makes her take a look it
Aegnor says (1:26 PM):
He just tells everyone he found the predator of the horses
not gonna force her or anythin'
Shadowcaller says (1:27 PM):
I guess she will take a look at it then
"Oh Artaris… what is that thing?"
"Its disguisting." She looks away
Shadowcaller says (1:30 PM):
Cessie goes close enough so she can take a close enough look upon it, then she will quickly retreat a safe distance away from it again.
Aegnor says (1:32 PM):
Any of the village hunters or something have any comments
Shadowcaller says (1:32 PM):
Well, they aren't really sure what it is
They certinly haven't seen anything like it before
Happy says (1:32 PM):
Simone asks the book.
Aegnor says (1:34 PM):
(Hm. We could totally use some kind of a 'town portal' artifact that teleports things to the village. Pity teleporting is imba)
Shadowcaller says (1:35 PM):
If Simone asks the book its a olgoi-khorkhoi (which means "Death worm"). Not very much is known about it except that it lives on the Tallrock plains between the black mountains and the Shisia Desert. Its rumored live undergound and be able to give its victims electric discharges from a distance which instantly kills them.
Happy says (1:35 PM):
Simone relates all this to Aegnor, and whoever else is near.
Does it know anything about what numbers they come in?
Shadowcaller says (1:36 PM):
Not much is known about their habit, but they are most likely lone hunters
Aegnor says (1:37 PM):
What about do they make good pack animals?
Shadowcaller says (1:37 PM):
Cessie: "I can't feel any magic from it…"
That isn't mentioned
Shadowcaller says (1:38 PM):
The book don't know really
Aegnor says (1:38 PM):
nobody's been dumb enough to try
Shadowcaller says (1:39 PM):
That might be the reason yes
Aegnor says (1:39 PM):
they probably don't make a good meal…
How fast do they move?
Shadowcaller says (1:40 PM):
Its theorized that it hides underground until its intended victim passes above it. Then it emerges and quickly kills it with a electric discharge
Shadowcaller says (1:41 PM):
Which should make it quite slow
Shadowcaller says (1:42 PM):
Except at very short distances
Happy says (1:42 PM):
If they travel underground, they probably don't make good pack animals.
Are they known to eat people?
Shadowcaller says (1:43 PM):
A few people are said to have been killed by them yes. But if it actually eats them is unkown
Aegnor says (1:43 PM):
anything about killing them?
Shadowcaller says (1:44 PM):
The book claims that they should die by anything that would kill a normal animal
Shadowcaller says (1:46 PM):
Or so its belived
*it is
Shadowcaller says (1:49 PM):
"Ugh, I don't want to have that creature near me. We should just go back to camp. Its past morning and we should get moving."
Aegnor says (1:52 PM):
Aegnor'll try to find horses again
Shadowcaller says (1:53 PM):
What are the others doing?
Cessie is heading back to camp
Happy says (1:53 PM):
Hope's doing whatever she's normally doing for the caravan. Giving Goldie her energy boost, checking on Peya and the baby, making sure that everyone who should be on litters is, etc.
Happy says (1:54 PM):
Seren probably tries to get some time with Cessie, so he can learn flight and she can learn force blast.
Shadowcaller says (1:54 PM):
Yeah, she will most likely learn force blast before he learns flight however
Shadowcaller says (1:56 PM):
(All those hand holding sessions… )
Happy says (1:56 PM):
Shadowcaller says (1:57 PM):
Cessie might comment to Aegnor that she think Seren is acting a bit wierd during these lessons
Simone then?
Shadowcaller says (1:59 PM):
Is she following Aegnor to get horses?
Happy says (1:59 PM):
Sure. She can practice her wilderness stealth skills.
Shadowcaller says (2:00 PM):
(There are such skills?) Shadow and another wolfen follows them too, soon enough they find what appears to be the same herd, down in a small valley
Happy says (2:00 PM):
(being sneaky in a town and being sneaky in the wild are not the same thing at all)
Aegnor says (2:00 PM):
(If Cessie does comment, RP it. )
Happy says (2:00 PM):
(do eeeet!)
Shadowcaller says (2:01 PM):
(During the journey then, when they are walking along next to each other, noon) "Aegnor, have you noticed Seren acting stragnely lately?"
Shadowcaller says (2:02 PM):
(Exactly how would he act Happy?)
Happy says (2:04 PM):
He's uncomfortable around Cessie, but he keeps seeking her out. And then he sort of loses track of what he's saying. Stammers a bit.
Shadowcaller says (2:04 PM):
Aegnor says (2:05 PM):
'Not really… why?'
Shadowcaller says (2:07 PM):
"Well, every time we are practicing magic he's so nervous. I try to go slow on him, but it dosen't seem to help. He stammers and keeps forgetting what he's aobut to say…"
Shadowcaller says (2:08 PM):
"I didn't really want to mention it to him, but he *is* acting strange."
Aegnor says (2:10 PM):
'Hmm. Odd.'
Shadowcaller says (2:11 PM):
"Do you think I should confront him about it?"
Shadowcaller says (2:12 PM):
"I mean, it have got a bit annyoing."
Aegnor says (2:12 PM):
Aegnor looks as if thinking for a moment. 'Sounds like he's nervous.'
Shadowcaller says (2:14 PM):
"Well yes, he is. But why? Do you think its my fault? I mean… maybe he's afraid of heights?"
Aegnor says (2:15 PM):
'Hm. Might be.'
Shadowcaller says (2:15 PM):
"I don't want to force him to fly."
Aegnor says (2:15 PM):
'It's his own decision. Teach him as long as he wants to.'
Shadowcaller says (2:17 PM):
Cessie sigh "But we have gotten so far… maybe I'm just using the wrong method?"
Shadowcaller says (2:19 PM):
(Also, from now on the GM decides if a wizards spell succeds or fails depending on the mental state the wizard currently is in. Keep in mind that spells with a duration takes constant mental energy to maintain.)
"What should I do?"
Aegnor says (2:25 PM):
'Hm. Wait a bit, maybe he'll get over it.'
Shadowcaller says (2:25 PM):
"Wait with the lessons you mean? He keeps seeking me out so thats a bit hard…"
Aegnor says (2:26 PM):
Happy says (2:26 PM):
(or wait a few weeks, and you'll be gone, so no more worries )
Aegnor says (2:26 PM):
'Wait as in don't do anything about it? Or talk to him, if you feel like it.'
Shadowcaller says (2:27 PM):
"I guess I should talk to him before I leave really…"
Shadowcaller says (2:28 PM):
"We might not even return."
Shadowcaller says (2:30 PM):
"That feels a bit strange really…"
Aegnor says (2:30 PM):
Shadowcaller says (2:31 PM):
"We have been with them for… what is it really? A month?"
Aegnor says (2:33 PM):
'Feels much longer…'
Happy says (2:33 PM):
(it has been longer)
Shadowcaller says (2:34 PM):
"It might be, my sense of time isn't the best. Back how we had calendars for that."
Shadowcaller says (2:36 PM):
"I suppose I should talk with him about it during our next lesson… it might be our last chance."
Aegnor says (2:37 PM):
He smiles. 'Go ahead.'
Shadowcaller says (2:38 PM):
(Back to the horses or Cessies and Serens next lesson?)
Aegnor says (2:39 PM):
Aegnor'll keep an eye on Seren, for he suspects… /ominous
Shadowcaller says (2:40 PM):
(Hehe… that would be intresting^^)
Happy says (2:41 PM):
(or he could just ask Simone)
Aegnor says (2:43 PM):
(But that's boring
(dun ask the girl who knows all )
Shadowcaller says (2:43 PM):
(She don't know all >.>)
Aegnor says (2:43 PM):
(oh she will)
Happy says (2:45 PM):
(If we were all statted up D&D style, she'd have more points in knowledge skills than anyone other than Helios.)
Aegnor says (2:46 PM):
(Because she's a knowledge freak!)
Shadowcaller says (2:48 PM):
(So, what next… and why haven't she told Aegnor about it?)
Happy says (2:49 PM):
(Why would she tell Aegnor?)
Shadowcaller says (2:49 PM):
8Why not?)
Happy says (2:51 PM):
(Because either Aegnor already knows, so there's no need, or he doesn't know, which means it's embarrassing Seren for no reason. If she thought Seren was a danger to Cessie, of course she would.)
Aegnor says (2:52 PM):
Shadowcaller says (2:52 PM):
Shadowcaller says (2:53 PM):
Shadow and another wolfen follows them too, soon enough they find what appears to be the same herd, down in a small valley

Aegnor says (2:54 PM):
He examines them and the surroundings from farther off.
Shadowcaller says (2:56 PM):
Sorrounding the valley are larger and smaller rocks, that creates a natural barrier against the wind. Thanks to this, it feels quite nice down here without the chill of the wind. The vally itself however is rock free
Aegnor says (2:57 PM):
Any water?
Shadowcaller says (2:58 PM):
Not really, but Aegnor can feel how it starts drizzle a bit
Shadowcaller says (2:59 PM):
Which is the first rain since they left Hyrillian
Aegnor says (2:59 PM):
How large is the herd?
Shadowcaller says (2:59 PM):
About 30 horses
Aegnor says (2:59 PM):
Aegnor says (3:00 PM):
Aegnor tries to sneak a bit closer.
Shadowcaller says (3:01 PM):
The herd continues to graze peacefully as he sneaks closer
Aegnor says (3:02 PM):
He starts playing very quietly, mixing it to the sound of the rain.
Trying to first get them to get used to the sound.
Shadowcaller says (3:03 PM):
The closest horse seems to notice him as he starts to play. It watches him suspiciously. The rest of the herd appears unaware however
Aegnor says (3:05 PM):
He doesn't make any threatening movements and just plays quietly.
Shadowcaller says (3:06 PM):
It continues to watch him but dosen't move.
Aegnor says (3:07 PM):
He starts trying to affect the nearest two or so horses calmingly with magic.
Shadowcaller says (3:12 PM):
All the horses except the two he is trying to effect suddenly appears to notice a suble change in his music and starts to run away. The two effect horses seems to be conflicted if they want to go after their herd or stay, they run a bit, but slower.
Aegnor says (3:12 PM):
He tries to calm them down to make them stop.
Shadowcaller says (3:15 PM):
One of the horses decides to go with the herd while the other stops entierly
Aegnor says (3:15 PM):
He walks closer to it and attempts to tame it.
Shadowcaller says (3:17 PM):
It walks up to him, looking at him with its big eyes. It appears a bit confused
Shadowcaller says (3:20 PM):
Its brown with a few white spots on its backlegs. It suddenly neighs and lifts it front legs up, looking a bit afraid
Aegnor says (3:21 PM):
He keeps playing with the kazoo softly while moving a bit closer.
Shadowcaller says (3:24 PM):
Shadow and Red Eagle (the other wolfen) continues to stay hidden as the horses seems to be startled by them. The horse seems to calm down a bit, but still appear to want him to go to close to iy
Aegnor says (3:24 PM):
(It wants him to go close?)
Shadowcaller says (3:25 PM):
*don't appears to not want him to go close
Wolfbane says (3:25 PM):
Shadowcaller says (3:25 PM):
Wolfbane says (3:25 PM):
(I caught up)
Shadowcaller says (3:25 PM):
*pokes Happy* What is Simone doing?
Happy says (3:26 PM):
nothing in particular
Shadowcaller says (3:26 PM):
*don't appear to want him to go too close to it
Shadowcaller says (3:27 PM):
Hiding with Shadow and Red Eagle then?
Aegnor says (3:27 PM):
Aegnor plays, transmitting a feeling of safety.
Shadowcaller says (3:28 PM):
The horse looks right into his eyes
Aegnor says (3:29 PM):
He takes another step closer to it, reaching out carefully with his hand.
Shadowcaller says (3:31 PM):
This time it dosen't step back
It seems quite calm
Aegnor says (3:33 PM):
He touches it with the tips of his fingers, then if it doesn't react negatively steps right next to it, keeping his hand on it.
Shadowcaller says (3:34 PM):
It donsen't seem to like being touched, but sttill don't step away
Aegnor says (3:37 PM):
He keeps playing for a moment, trying to make it feel he's a friend.
Then he stops
Shadowcaller says (3:38 PM):
It looks at him again but dosen't appear to do much else
Aegnor says (3:39 PM):
He tries to see if it'll follow him if he walks a bit farther.
Shadowcaller says (3:40 PM):
It dose a bit, not really sure what else to do apperently
Shadowcaller says (3:46 PM):
(Where is goldie?)
Aegnor says (3:46 PM):
Next for the real test…
He attempts to lead it slowly towards the wolfen.
Shadowcaller says (3:47 PM):
Just letting it follow him then?
Aegnor says (3:47 PM):
Well it's not like he has a leash or something
Shadowcaller says (3:49 PM):
The horse follows him, Shadow and Red Eagle seems unsure if they like to show themselves however
Shadowcaller says (3:50 PM):
There are hiding behind the rock surrounding the valley
Happy says (3:51 PM):
Goldie is with Hope and Promise, probably.
or maybe following Cessie around.
Aegnor says (3:51 PM):
He keeps a hand on the horse, walking further slowly until it seems to smell them.
Wolfbane says (3:51 PM):
Yeah, Goldie doesn't want to stray very far from someone in the group since she knows something is wrong with her.
Shadowcaller says (3:52 PM):
It panics, lifting its hooves in the air and neighs loudly
Aegnor is almost hit by them
(Who is she with then?)
Aegnor says (3:52 PM):
He dodges to it's side, playing some more.
Wolfbane says (3:52 PM):
(Cessie then)
Wolfbane says (3:53 PM):
(What is she doing anyways?)
Shadowcaller says (3:53 PM):
(What is she doing with Cessie? She don't know anything about hearth diseases o.O)
Wolfbane says (3:53 PM):
(She likes Cessie. >.>)
Shadowcaller says (3:53 PM):
This appears to have little effect, the horse is still in panic.)
Wolfbane says (3:54 PM):
(And honestly, Hope is probably keeping an eye on her)
(From a distance)
Aegnor says (3:54 PM):
He adds power, trying to calm it down.
Shadowcaller says (3:54 PM):
Well, she have to sneak up on Cessie then, she's practicing magic at the moment
(Should we have Seren/Cessie/Goldie?)
Shadowcaller says (3:55 PM):
The horse gets closer to Aegnor, but still don't appear very calm, despite the fact that he have reached his maximum magic
Wolfbane says (3:55 PM):
Cessie can hear the now familiar pitter patter of Wolfen paws. And a giggle.
Aegnor says (3:56 PM):
He's not going to use any more magic than very small traces in any case
not going to go near what he could
Shadowcaller says (3:57 PM):
She stops summoning magic and sigh quietly "GOldie?"
*elemental energy
Wolfbane says (3:57 PM):
Goldie smiles. "Hi Miss Cessie!"
Shadowcaller says (3:57 PM):
(She goes inside the tent?)
Wolfbane says (3:57 PM):
Shadowcaller says (3:58 PM):
The horse looks at him, its eyes clearly show just how afraid it is
"Hello Goldie, shouldn't you be with Hope? Your sick."
Aegnor says (3:59 PM):
He decides that instead of trying to make it feel calm he'll try to make it feel like it's safest with him.
Wolfbane says (3:59 PM):
"Miss Hope says that I can't sleep /all/ the time and that I have to get a little exercise to stay healthy."
Shadowcaller says (4:00 PM):
The horse now is next to him, refusing to go elsewhere
Shadowcaller says (4:01 PM):
"She is watching you right? I don't want you to have any attacks or something…"
Aegnor says (4:01 PM):
He keeps a hand on it, just waiting in place for a while.
Shadowcaller says (4:02 PM):
It stays there with him, looking around nervously
Wolfbane says (4:03 PM):
"She says if I start to feel tired I go back to her and not to stray off too far. Arik the Rock approves of staying close." She nods.
Shadowcaller says (4:04 PM):
"Okay…" Cessie looks at her, looking quite concerned "How are you feeling?"
Aegnor says (4:05 PM):
Aegnor slowly tries to calm it down without moving anywhere.
Wolfbane says (4:05 PM):
She smiles. "I feel good today."
Shadowcaller says (4:06 PM):
It takes a while, but finally, as no creatures have attacked it, it seems to have gone used to the smell
Shadowcaller says (4:07 PM):
"Thats very good to hear Goldie. Is there anything I can do for you?"
Wolfbane says (4:08 PM):
"I just wanted to watch you practice magic."
Shadowcaller says (4:11 PM):
"Oh, well summoning elemental energy takes quite an effort so I'm only practicing with it when I think I'm safe. Like now."
"Otherwise I would be exhuased before a battle."
Aegnor says (4:11 PM):
He whispers to the horse and tries to coax it into walking further
Shadowcaller says (4:12 PM):
It follows him carefully, watching its steps
Wolfbane says (4:12 PM):
"Its okay Miss Cessie. I like to watch." she says with a smile.
Shadowcaller says (4:14 PM):
"Well… what do you want to see then?"
Aegnor says (4:14 PM):
He leads it to the wolfen.
Wolfbane says (4:14 PM):
She grins. "Surprise me."
Shadowcaller says (4:16 PM):
The horse eyes them suspciously but stays with you. Shadow and Red Eagle stays perfectly still, not doing any sudden moves.
Shadowcaller says (4:17 PM):
"I guess I can do something easy…" A light appears in her palm
*Outstreched palm
Wolfbane says (4:18 PM):
Goldie's eyes go O.O "Ooooo…pretty."
Shadowcaller says (4:18 PM):
Shadow: "What now?"
Aegnor says (4:18 PM):
'I'm not really very experienced at this…'
Shadowcaller says (4:19 PM):
Cessie smiles at GOldies expression "Its nothing really… I can make it change colors too if you like."
Wolfbane says (4:20 PM):
Goldie grins in a very human way. "Please?"
Shadowcaller says (4:20 PM):
"Neither are we." (Aegnor don't actually understand this wholse sentance but he links the words) "Take it back to camp?" (same thing here.)
The light turns purple and then slowly becomes blue
Aegnor says (4:21 PM):
Aegnor says (4:22 PM):
(Simone do anything? )
Wolfbane says (4:22 PM):
Goldie's gaze is lost in the orb of light. "Its pretty."
Shadowcaller says (4:22 PM):
(Where have happy been? o.O)
Happy says (4:23 PM):
(I'm here)
(I just don't really have anything for my characters to do. So they are doing everyday stuff offscreen)
Aegnor says (4:24 PM):
(Wasn't Simone with the horse-hunting group anyway)
Shadowcaller says (4:24 PM):
Cessie looks at her, not really paying any attention to the light in her palm "I suppose it is…" She says, taking a glance at the light "But to me it just feel like weak magic."
(She was.)
Happy says (4:25 PM):
(Oh yeah)
Wolfbane says (4:25 PM):
(Could always have it so Promise is fetching water from a nearby stream and accidentally scoops up Saranna. )
Happy says (4:25 PM):
I guess Simone tries to approach the horse then.
Wolfbane says (4:26 PM):
"What happens if I touch it?" Goldie says, leaning a little closer.
Aegnor says (4:26 PM):
Shadowcaller says (4:27 PM):
It regards her with caution, but dosen't step back.
"Nothing, its just light really."
Happy says (4:28 PM):
She looks to Aegnor for permission before trying to touch it.
Wolfbane says (4:28 PM):
Goldie attempts to poke at it.
Shadowcaller says (4:28 PM):
Her finger finds nothing od substance
Shadowcaller says (4:29 PM):
"See? Its nothing there."
Wolfbane says (4:30 PM):
Goldie giggles as her hand passes through.
Aegnor says (4:30 PM):
Aegnor nods at her.
Shadowcaller says (4:31 PM):
The light suddenly shifts in many different colors
Happy says (4:31 PM):
Simone very gently reaches out to touch the horse, holding her breath.
Wolfbane says (4:31 PM):
Shadowcaller says (4:32 PM):
It neighs quietly and licks her hand
Shadowcaller says (4:33 PM):
"Its nothing really GOldie, its just magic light. It was the first spell I learned." She says, smiling at Goldie
Happy says (4:37 PM):
Simone is enchanted, and Aegnor gets to see one of the rare glimpses of the little girl.
Aegnor says (4:38 PM):
He smiles.
Wolfbane says (4:38 PM):
"How do you learn magic?" she asks.
Shadowcaller says (4:40 PM):
"Well… your born with it really. Then you must practice it a while and so fourth… the more you use it, the more powerful you become… if we use really simple terms here."
Wolfbane says (4:41 PM):
brb dinner
Happy says (4:41 PM):
"You're so pretty. Yes you are," Simone murmurs to the horse.
Shadowcaller says (4:43 PM):
It continues to lick her hand and seems rather pleased with her attention
Happy says (4:43 PM):
"Is it a boy or a girl?" she asks Aegnor
Shadowcaller says (4:45 PM):
Shadow and Red Eagle don't really seems sure what to do. But finally shadow steps away a bit from the horse "I'm going back, should I get something?"
Aegnor says (4:46 PM):
(Which is it?)
Shadowcaller says (4:47 PM):
(You can't tell.)
(You didn't know much about horses remember?)
Happy says (4:47 PM):
(er,do you know how big male horsey bits are?)
Shadowcaller says (4:47 PM):
(Yeah, I saw a video about it >.>)
Shadowcaller says (4:48 PM):
(Its a boy.)
Aegnor says (4:48 PM):
'Boy.' (I need to sleep…9
Shadowcaller says (4:48 PM):
(Already? Okay.)
Happy says (4:49 PM):
"Aren't you a handsome boy. We're going to have to think of a name for you."
*hugs Murska*
Shadowcaller says (4:50 PM):
(Good Night.)
Aegnor says (4:50 PM):
Shadowcaller says (4:50 PM):
(I keep going until I fall asleep )
Shadowcaller says (4:51 PM):
(Do Seren/GOldie/Cessie?)
Happy says (4:54 PM):
Shadowcaller says (4:54 PM):
(Well, lets wait until wolfy returns.)
Shadowcaller says (4:59 PM):
Wolfbane says (5:04 PM):
Shadowcaller says (5:04 PM):
Shadowcaller säger:
"Well… your born with it really. Then you must practice it a while and so fourth… the more you use it, the more powerful you become… if we use really simple terms here."

Wolfbane says (5:05 PM):
"Could I learn it?"
Shadowcaller says (5:06 PM):
"Um… I don't know really."
Wolfbane says (5:07 PM):
She ponders. "How do I know if I can? Does talking to Arik the Rock count as magic?"
Shadowcaller says (5:08 PM):
"I can't talk to him can I?"
Shadowcaller says (5:09 PM):
"The ability to control elemental energy is very rare I'm afraid."
Wolfbane says (5:10 PM):
*is deciding what to do*
Wolfbane says (5:12 PM):
Goldie's ear twitches and a curious look appears on her face. "Are you sure, Arik the Rock?"
Shadowcaller says (5:13 PM):
Cessie looks at her a bit confused
Wolfbane says (5:15 PM):
Goldie offers Cessie Arik the Rock. "He says he wants to talk to you." Cessie can feel a slight build up of magical energy from the stone.
Shadowcaller says (5:16 PM):
"What was that? I felt something from the rock."
Wolfbane says (5:17 PM):
"It's Arik the Rock." She has a look on her face that practically says /I told you so/.
Shadowcaller says (5:18 PM):
Still looking confused she takes the rock
Wolfbane says (5:19 PM):
She can feel a pulse of magic and a gravelly voice appears in her head. /Hello Miss Cessie/. It sounds slightly amused.
Shadowcaller says (5:20 PM):
/…you got to be kidding me, what are you?/
Wolfbane says (5:20 PM):
She hears a mental sigh. /That is a long story. Do you wish to hear it, or give a short version?/
Shadowcaller says (5:21 PM):
/I would like to hear why I'm talking to a rock yes./
Wolfbane says (5:22 PM):
Goldie looks up at her, amused.
Shadowcaller says (5:22 PM):
Cessie is concentrated on the stone
Wolfbane says (5:25 PM):
/First off, I am not 'just' a rock. I was once a sentient being that lived on the Elemental plane of earth. Unfortunatly, a fool wizard summoned me to fight a battle for him. I declined since I am not a war like creature. Because of that, he cut me off from my home plane. Luckily, I escaped him and have been hiding. I've become very good at hiding my nature and what you call magic./
Wolfbane says (5:26 PM):
(Is Cessie freaked out by the talking rock yet? )
Shadowcaller says (5:26 PM):
/Uhh… right. Your a djinn?/
Shadowcaller says (5:27 PM):
(She is >.>)
Wolfbane says (5:27 PM):
(What is your definition of a djinn?)
(That way I can actually answer)
Happy says (5:27 PM):
(they're supposed to be really powerful… better say no)
Wolfbane says (5:28 PM):
(Okay, that is what I thought anyways)
Wolfbane says (5:29 PM):
/No. I am not nearly as strong. Most of my abilities are protective in nature. Which I will use if Goldie is *ever* threatened./ He sounds very protective of her.
Shadowcaller says (5:29 PM):
/Your protecting her? I thought all elemental beings were supposed to hate this plane./
Shadowcaller says (5:30 PM):
(Seren is free to enter any time…)
Wolfbane says (5:31 PM):
/Yes, I am. I've grown attached to her. I'm trapped here. But I wouldn't leave now anyways now that I have met Goldie./
Shadowcaller says (5:32 PM):
/Wow… I didn't realize… what are you really? Everything I have learned of the elemental plane is that all sentient creatures in the elemental plans are very non-human./
Shadowcaller says (5:34 PM):
/…not any harm meant./
Wolfbane says (5:36 PM):
It laughs. /Trust me, I am very unhuman. Should I choose to manifest completely, you'd understand. I guess you would call me an Earth Guardian. We are not very powerful, but as I said, most of our abilities are defensive./
Shadowcaller says (5:38 PM):
/I mean mentally…/ A paus /Nevermind, if you don't mind, tell me why you are a rock?/
Wolfbane says (5:39 PM):
/I've been hiding from the one who summoned me. Even though it has been a long time, if I use too much power he will know that I am here. He is very wrathful./
Shadowcaller says (5:41 PM):
/How long have you been here? Why do you care for GOldie so much?/ She no longer sounds confused, but rather excited and intrested
Wolfbane says (5:43 PM):
/Please, tell me what is wrong with Goldie, first./
Shadowcaller says (5:44 PM):
/Her hearth is mulfunctioning I think./
Wolfbane says (5:45 PM):
She can hear a mental sigh. /I…thank you for telling me. I've been here for a very long time. Long enough that I had actually started to "become" a rock before Goldie met me./
Shadowcaller says (5:46 PM):
/Don't worry she will be fine… but how exactly did you two make contact?/
Wolfbane says (5:51 PM):
/I had been in my complete form for a while so I could more quickly. I stumbled on her in a small clearing near her home. She had been crying. I had been alone for a long time by then and after I introduced myself, I took this form so she could carry me around. SHe gained a friend she needed and so did I./
Shadowcaller says (5:54 PM):
/…you need friends?/
Shadowcaller says (5:55 PM):
/Did you have friends in the elemental realm?/
Wolfbane says (5:56 PM):
/Yes, I had a few. There are quite a few of my kind, you know. Not many by your standards, but more of us than most other kinds from my plain. And yes, travelling alone is quite tiresome./
Shadowcaller says (5:57 PM):
/I suppose… I can say I really didn't notice GOldie until she entred my tent one day./
Shadowcaller says (5:58 PM):
Wolfbane says (5:58 PM):
/She mostly stayed to herself before then. I tried to get her to make new friends, but it was difficult./
Shadowcaller says (6:01 PM):
/…Oh./ A paus /Poor girl… why didn't she come to us?/
Happy says (6:01 PM):
(i'm here)
Wolfbane says (6:02 PM):
/She has already told you she is an orphan. She never really fit in. I'm just happy that she met you though. Because of that, she'll hopefully recover./
Shadowcaller says (6:02 PM):
(Okay, just checking… so you know >.>)
Shadowcaller says (6:03 PM):
/What? Me?/ Another paus /But surely it's better if she found on her own age. I'm busy all the time… and I'm going to leave soon./
Shadowcaller says (6:04 PM):
(Just.. saying…)
Happy says (6:04 PM):
Cessie hears clapping outside her tent.
Shadowcaller says (6:05 PM):
(Hm, let me use the bath room and change computer, RP among yourself during that time.)
Wolfbane says (6:06 PM):
/You're leaving? What about Goldie? Even I can figure out that without regular healings she won't make it long./ He sounds shocked and scared.
Shadowcaller says (6:09 PM):
(Changing computer…)

Shadowcaller has left the conversation.

Shadowcaller has been added to the conversation.

Wolfbane says (6:11 PM):
There you go
Shadowcaller says (6:11 PM):
paste what was said
Wolfbane says (6:12 PM):
/You're leaving? What about Goldie? Even I can figure out that without regular healings she won't make it long./ He sounds shocked and scared.
Shadowcaller says (6:12 PM):
/Uh… I'm afraid I don't know much of her condition./
Shadowcaller says (6:13 PM):
Cessie takes the rock and stands up
Wolfbane says (6:13 PM):
(Oh, and someone was clapping outside)
Shadowcaller says (6:13 PM):
Shadowcaller says (6:14 PM):
(too many chats for this computer >.>)
Wolfbane says (6:14 PM):
/Please, don't leave her. Take her with you./ He sounds desperate.
Shadowcaller says (6:16 PM):
/But she's only a child. We are going on a very dangerous journey and with her condition, she isn't suited for that. When we might be spending all our energy on staying alive ourself, how are we supposed to take care of a little girl?/
Wolfbane says (6:17 PM):
/Please, I'll do anything to save her. Even serve you if that is what it takes. I'll carry her myself if necessary, just don't let her die./
Shadowcaller says (6:20 PM):
/I don't want her to die, I'm sure Helena might be able to take care of her and it will be much safer here then with us. We are going after a very dangerous cult…/ (what is Goldie doing?
Wolfbane says (6:21 PM):
Goldie is wondering what is going on because while she can't hear the mental conversation, she knows /something/ is happening. She'll follow Cessie if she is walking.
Happy says (6:21 PM):
Someone claps outside.
Shadowcaller says (6:23 PM):
Cessie takes a peek outside, carefully putting the rock in her pocket
Happy says (6:24 PM):
It's Hope
Wolfbane says (6:24 PM):
/Can your Goddess even heal her? Please, I will protect her with every means at my disposal. Just take her with you. Can't you see that you are one of her few friends? She trusts you. Don't force her to stay here. She'd be heartbroken even more than she already is./
Happy says (6:25 PM):
"Hi, is Goldie in here with you? I thought I saw her come this way."

Wolfbane says (6:34 PM):
Shadowcaller says (6:26 PM):
"Oh she's here…" Cessie appears somewhat distracted.
Wolfbane says (6:26 PM):
Goldie smiles at Hope. "Hi Miss Hope! She is talking to Arik the Rock."

Shadowcaller says (6:35 PM):
/*sigh* I do care about her and thats why I would like her to stay. I'm sure Helena can heal her and she have you right?)
Happy says (6:35 PM):
Hope sits down next to Goldie. "How are you feeling today?"
Wolfbane says (6:35 PM):
"I'm good today. Slightly tired, but not cold."
Happy says (6:36 PM):
"And have you been eating? I know the hunters have brought fresh meat in."
Wolfbane says (6:36 PM):
/Can Helena even heal this?/
Goldie nods. "Yep! I've been eating."
Shadowcaller says (6:37 PM):
/I don't know, but she's a goddess after all… I'm sure she can do something./
Wolfbane says (6:39 PM):
It seems to calm down a little. /Could you ask?/
Shadowcaller says (6:40 PM):
/I could… let me just speak to Hope okay? I'm not done asking you yet…/
Wolfbane says (6:40 PM):
/I'll be waiting./
Shadowcaller says (6:41 PM):
"Um, Hope?"
Happy says (6:44 PM):
Shadowcaller says (6:44 PM):
"The rock is magical… somewhat."
Happy says (6:44 PM):
"Oh. Okay."
Shadowcaller says (6:46 PM):
"Its… talking to me." The last part is only uttered in a whisper
Wolfbane says (6:46 PM):
(Freak out Cessie? *checkmarks off list*)
Shadowcaller says (6:46 PM):
Happy says (6:46 PM):
*blink* "Really?"
Happy says (6:47 PM):
(hey, you got to freak out Hope )
Shadowcaller says (6:48 PM):
"Yes, it claims it's an earth elemental trapped here. It have befriended Goldie for some reason and now whats to protect her."
(Who did?)
Happy says (6:49 PM):
Shadowcaller says (6:49 PM):
(Cessie have lead her away from Goldie.)
Happy says (6:49 PM):
Hope looks alarmed. "Are you sure it's safe?"
Wolfbane says (6:49 PM):
She can hear a scoffing noise in her head. /I'm not a mindless 'elemental'. I am an Earth Guardian./
(She as in Cessie)
Shadowcaller says (6:49 PM):
(Right, but that was different >.>)
Wolfbane says (6:50 PM):
(You were forcing Hope to pull her face off!)
Happy says (6:50 PM):
(Yeah, Cessie probably won't still be having nightmares about it months later, like Hope still does. >.> )
Shadowcaller says (6:50 PM):
Happy says (6:50 PM):
(And she protected Zubera even though she is terrified of her)
Shadowcaller says (6:51 PM):
"It claims it met her already back in the village and it have protected her ever since."
/I never heard about your classification before anyway./
Shadowcaller says (6:52 PM):
/Your from the elemental planes and therefore your a elemental./
Shadowcaller says (6:53 PM):
"It wants me to take Goldie along… but I can't. We need to speak with Helena./
Shadowcaller says (6:54 PM):
(Well… I just have to do something that outclasses that then )
Wolfbane says (6:55 PM):
(If you trauamatize Hope beyond repair or too badly, I'll make Cessie gibber like a maniac for weeks. <.<)
Shadowcaller says (6:55 PM):
(I was /kidding/ >.>)
Shadowcaller says (6:56 PM):
(Besides, its not like you can out horrify me)
Happy says (6:56 PM):
"Okay. Let's do that then."
(But we can horrify Miss Lawful)
Shadowcaller says (6:56 PM):
(Like how eh?)
Wolfbane says (6:57 PM):
(Hmmm…. what shall we do to her Happy? Someone poison;s her drink with something that gets rid of her inhibitions?)
Happy says (6:57 PM):
(walk in on her and Aegnor)
Wolfbane says (6:57 PM):
(Oo! Much more evil!)
Shadowcaller says (6:57 PM):
I guess they go to freedom then? *twitch*
Happy says (6:58 PM):
(either that or use the Orb)
Shadowcaller says (6:58 PM):
(Oh right.)
Shadowcaller says (6:59 PM):
(The first thing would be intresting
) Cessie rumages thought her things after the orv. (THe second she could just… well its not like someone /don't know/ anyway. Simone even walked in on them once.)
Happy says (7:01 PM):
(when they were asleep)
Wolfbane says (7:01 PM):
(Yeah, but not when they were in the middle of it)
Shadowcaller says (7:02 PM):
(*twitch* well, she would lock the door since from now on theyr will be in buildings >.>) She finds the orb and contacts Helena.
Wolfbane says (7:02 PM):
(What if something happens and those two don't know and Hope and PRomise have to burst in?)
Wolfbane says (7:03 PM):
(*Hope and Promise burst in fighting a horde of zombies while Aegnor and Cessie are busy*)
Shadowcaller says (7:03 PM):
(Locked door! She would hear them anyway…)
Wolfbane says (7:03 PM):
(She always casts silence though)
Shadowcaller says (7:03 PM):
(Yes, but that only prevents sounds from leaving, not entering.)
Happy says (7:05 PM):
I suppose Hope gave Goldie some message for Promise, to get her out of the way?
Wolfbane says (7:06 PM):
Goldie waves at Cessie one last time. "Play nice Arik the Rock!" she follows Hope.
Happy says (7:06 PM):
(Um, Hope and Cessie are staying together)
Wolfbane says (7:06 PM):
Goldie goes to Promise then.
Happy says (7:06 PM):
(nm, will roleplay it)
Wolfbane says (7:07 PM):
They'll be playing hide and seek if anyone needs them later.
Happy says (7:07 PM):
Happy says (7:08 PM):
Helena appears in the orb. "Hello, Cessie. Hope."
Shadowcaller says (7:08 PM):
"Hi… you heard about Goldie right?"
Happy says (7:09 PM):
"Yes. Freedom told me that she's been ill."
Shadowcaller says (7:10 PM):
"Yes. I belive Hope know what is is right?"
Shadowcaller says (7:12 PM):
*it is
Happy says (7:14 PM):
"It's a defect in the shape of her heart. She must have been born with it."
Shadowcaller says (7:15 PM):
"Right… its uncurable right?"
Happy says (7:16 PM):
Hope: "It's incurable by anything I can do. I don't know how to reshape a heart."
Shadowcaller says (7:17 PM):
"Why did it show up now?"
Happy says (7:22 PM):
"It's not something that causes a great deal of harm, but little by little, it has built up over the years. Then the extra stress from the desert and the journey finally pushed her over the edge."
Shadowcaller says (7:24 PM):
"Oh… well, what we really was wondering is if you can take care of her when we leave Helena."
Happy says (7:26 PM):
Helena: "I'm not sure. I was able to give my priestesses healing power back in my former kingdom, but I was much more powerful then."
Shadowcaller says (7:27 PM):
"You can try right?"
Happy says (7:28 PM):
"Of course I can. Take her to Freedom or Gilraen when you have a chance, and I'll see what I can do."
Shadowcaller says (7:28 PM):
Cessie bows "Thanks so much Helena, I will tell Goldie this."
Shadowcaller says (7:32 PM):
I guess she leaves to tell Goldie that then
Wolfbane says (7:33 PM):
Goldie will be found hiding from Promise.
Shadowcaller says (7:33 PM):
(Really? That can't be a good hiding spot and is hide and seek really a good game for wolfen anyway?)
Wolfbane says (7:34 PM):
(Okay, she is /starting/ to find a place to hide from Promise by crossing the stream)
Shadowcaller says (7:35 PM):
(Then how did Cessie find her? She have a relly poor sense of finding things >.>)
Wolfbane says (7:35 PM):
(Cessie followed her prints in the sand, remember?)
Shadowcaller says (7:36 PM):
(but there must be a lot of prints aorund in the camp.)
Happy says (7:36 PM):
(then I guess she didn't find her )
Wolfbane says (7:36 PM):
(There was only one set other than Cessie's and they were around the edge of the camp where few people went)
Shadowcaller says (7:37 PM):
Oh, we aren't in sand anymore
Wolfbane says (7:37 PM):
So yeah, after a quick search, they see Goldie running and giggling as she crosses a stream several times.
Shadowcaller says (7:38 PM):
Dry plains
Wolfbane says (7:38 PM):
She looks up. "Hi Miss Cessie! I'm trying to hide from Promise."
Mister Promise*
Shadowcaller says (7:40 PM):
"Hi… Um, could you follow me a bit? We need to get to Freedom so she can check up on you."
Wolfbane says (7:40 PM):
"Okay Miss Cessie." She says with a smile as she follows.
Shadowcaller says (7:41 PM):
SHe leads her to Freedoms hut I suppose
Shadowcaller says (7:43 PM):
Wolfbane says (7:45 PM):
(Am I supposed to be Freedom or is Happy?)
Shadowcaller says (7:45 PM):
(I dunno.)
Wolfbane says (7:45 PM):
Freedom looks up as they enter. "Hello Cessie. Hello Goldie."
(There =P)
"Hi Miss Freedom!" Goldie says with a smile.
Happy says (7:46 PM):
In Freedom's mind: /I'm going to try and give you healing power./
Shadowcaller says (7:46 PM):
"Hello… I was just wondering if you could attempt to heal Goldie a bit."
Wolfbane says (7:46 PM):
/Okay. You want me to try on Goldie?/
Shadowcaller says (7:47 PM):
"If that isn't too much trouble."
Wolfbane says (7:48 PM):
Freedom smiles at Cessie and Goldie. "Of course not. Goldie, come a little closer." Goldie does so.
Happy says (7:48 PM):
/Yes. I want you to lay hands on her./
Wolfbane says (7:48 PM):
Freedom puts her paws on Goldie's shoulders.
Shadowcaller says (7:48 PM):
Cessie follows her
Wolfbane says (7:49 PM):
And attempts to heal her I guess.
Shadowcaller says (7:50 PM):
Cessie watches the attempt
Happy says (7:51 PM):
(hmm, what kind of magic do gods use, anyway?)
Shadowcaller says (7:52 PM):
Happy says (7:52 PM):
Shadowcaller says (7:53 PM):
(Yeah, but it depends on thhe god really, some gods are more spirit others are more elemental.)
Happy says (7:53 PM):
(Helena started out as a half trained wizard, fed with necromancy. So what would that be?_
Shadowcaller says (7:54 PM):
(Elemental I suppose.)
(Druids can also be gods… as in Kuoris case.)
Wolfbane says (7:55 PM):
Wolfbane says (7:56 PM):
Shadowcaller says (8:00 PM):
Happy says (8:02 PM):
Goldie should feel some improvement, but not as much as she gets from Hope then.
Wolfbane says (8:03 PM):
Goldie smiles as she is healed.
Shadowcaller says (8:03 PM):
"Are you done?" Cessie says after a few moments of silence
Wolfbane says (8:04 PM):
(Does Freedom know how much she healed?)
Shadowcaller says (8:04 PM):
(I don't think so.)
Wolfbane says (8:06 PM):
Freedom looks at Cessie. "I'm not sure how much I helped. I haven't tried healing many things."
Shadowcaller says (8:07 PM):
"I'm sure you get better after some practice." She smiles slightly at Freedom and Goldie
Shadowcaller says (8:08 PM):
"How are you feeling Goldie?"

Wolfbane says (8:08 PM):
"I'm feeling good Miss Cessie." SHe giggles. "Mister Promise is probably looking all over for me now."
Shadowcaller says (8:09 PM):
"I suppose he is… /Hello?/ (to the rock)
Wolfbane says (8:10 PM):
/I'm here. Was Helena able to heal her?/
Shadowcaller says (8:11 PM):
/Yes, she says she's feeling better now./
Wolfbane says (8:11 PM):
/She always feels better after a healing though./ He sounds a bit skeptical.
Shadowcaller says (8:12 PM):
/Well, its still a better option then that we have to take care of her./
Wolfbane says (8:13 PM):
(You just want to get rid of Goldie so Cessie doesn't go all Big Sister like, do you? v.v)
Shadowcaller says (8:14 PM):
(Cessi cares about her, but by character, she thinks she should stay at home.)
Shadowcaller says (8:15 PM):
(They aren't going to safe place after all, especially for little wolfen girls with hearth diseases./
Happy says (8:15 PM):
(no, but if the alternative is that she stays where she is and dies within the year >.> )
Shadowcaller says (8:16 PM):
(Cessie don't know that.)
Wolfbane says (8:16 PM):
(No one does unless Hope examines her heart)
Shadowcaller says (8:17 PM):
(haven't she done that already?)
Wolfbane says (8:18 PM):
(Before the healing)
Shadowcaller says (8:19 PM):
(And Cessie isn't really a good "big sister." >.>)
Wolfbane says (8:19 PM):
/If you say so. I'd still prefer her in the hands of Hope though. And among friends./
Shadowcaller says (8:21 PM):
/SUrenly she must have some friends here, this is the only home she have ever known. I have only met here like 5 times after all/
Wolfbane says (8:23 PM):
/She doesn't have many. Mostly the rocks and trees which I have enabled her to speak to, but they are not as intelligent as an actual sentient being. Enough to get across simple concepts, but nothing more./
Shadowcaller says (8:24 PM):
/She really speaks with them? How dose that work?/
Shadowcaller says (8:25 PM):
/…and trees are sentient beings?/
/Artairs… is everything sentient?/
Wolfbane says (8:26 PM):
/No in any way that we'd call sentient and not intelligent at all. You know how some animals communicate with smell? Trees are able to do it with spores. I only enabled her to "listen" to them as if they were speaking./
Shadowcaller says (8:27 PM):
/How do you do that? Can I do that?/
Wolfbane says (8:29 PM):
/As for rocks and stones, each one holds a tiny fraction of energy from my elemental plane. And through me, we were able to speak. No, as you don't have the correct sense of smell and I can only unlock what is already there to begin with./
(I think that should fit into Murska's neat little world creation theory. =P)
Shadowcaller says (8:30 PM):
(Its my theory!)
Wolfbane says (8:30 PM):
(And your's. ^^)
Shadowcaller says (8:31 PM):
/But I still have only known her for a few days… she can't follow me./
Wolfbane says (8:31 PM):
/She looks up to you Cessie./
Shadowcaller says (8:32 PM):
/Why? WHy would anyone look up to me?/
Wolfbane says (8:33 PM):
/She likes your magic./ He says with a chuckle.
Shadowcaller says (8:34 PM):
/Thats not a reason to look up to me…/
Wolfbane says (8:36 PM):
/She likes you Cessie, even if you think she should or not. But, let us not continue this discussion. You said you had a few more things to ask?/
Shadowcaller says (8:36 PM):
/Yes, how is the elemental planes?/
Wolfbane says (8:38 PM):
/From what I have heard, each is very different. Mine was calm and peaceful. Mountains of jagged rock, forests of crystal spires, and vast plains of smooth slate. I think you'd like it there./ He makes a contented sigh.
Shadowcaller says (8:39 PM):
/Huh… but isn't it all just a big blur of energy? I had imagined it.. well beyond what I can imagine really./
Shadowcaller says (8:40 PM):
(Humans can't actually live i most of the elemental planes due lack of… well what mortals need to live./
Wolfbane says (8:40 PM):
/To you it may be a blur of energy, but all you have to do is shift your perspective a bit, and it shall focus./
Shadowcaller says (8:41 PM):
/Hm, so it's like the mortal world then?/
Wolfbane says (8:42 PM):
/When any of what you call elementals is summoned, we must shift our focus like you must do on ours. It is a bit harder though since it is much more than just a plane of energy or elements./
Shadowcaller says (8:43 PM):
/We can enter the elemental plane?/ She sounds a bit skeptical
Wolfbane says (8:44 PM):
/If given the chance, I could teach you how to shift focus, but I can't teach you to go to a different plane as I have been cut off. Though, I don't reccommend visiting the planes of Fire or Water./
Shadowcaller says (8:44 PM):
/Air then?/
Shadowcaller says (8:45 PM):
Wolfbane says (8:45 PM):
/Make sure you can fly. Supposedly you can walk on the clouds there, but I haven't had the chance./
Shadowcaller says (8:45 PM):
/Force? Darkness?/
Wolfbane says (8:46 PM):
/Light, Force, and Darkness, I do not know sadly./
Shadowcaller says (8:46 PM):
(technically its "anti-light.)
/There are millions of planes… I just know a few of them./
Wolfbane says (8:46 PM):
/Each is dangerous in its own right, try to find a way to learn about them first before going to one./
Shadowcaller says (8:47 PM):
/Err… I rather stay for now./
Wolfbane says (8:48 PM):
It chortles. /Good choice./
Shadowcaller says (8:49 PM):
(I guess we do Seren/Cessie tomorrow then?)
Wolfbane says (8:50 PM):
(sorry for this taking so long)
Shadowcaller says (8:50 PM):
/Yes… what actually happends when we force you into being?/
(I'm taking long >.>)
Happy says (8:51 PM):
(this is good… i can't ever focus long enough to roleplay against Cessie's curiosity for any length of time)
Shadowcaller says (8:51 PM):
(Cessie needs to ask all this, thought I think Happy is tired by now.)
Wolfbane says (8:51 PM):
/Its… hard to explain. We just "know" we are being summoned. Then, we just answer the call./
Shadowcaller says (8:53 PM):
/You "answer" it? I thought we forced you here? I mean… I know elementals are supposed to hate this plane. Djinns often show it by destroying as much of it as possible./
Wolfbane says (8:55 PM):
/Its more of that we are forced to answer, but the most powerful beings can resist and deny it if they wish. The reason most hate this plane is because when it formed, it sapped a lot of energy from the elemental planes, weakening them quite a bit./
Wolfbane says (8:58 PM):
/I formed a long time afterwards of course. Few beings remember that event./
Shadowcaller says (8:59 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:00 PM):
Close there <.<
Wolfbane says (9:00 PM):
Almost fell asleep?
Shadowcaller says (9:00 PM):
Happy says (9:00 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:00 PM):
I sit up now
Wolfbane says (9:01 PM):
Come on, I have a ton of stuff that I can answer. Better hurry before I forget it all!

Shadowcaller says (9:01 PM):
/Wait.. if they hate it, why asnwer it?/
/I mean djinns./
Wolfbane says (9:02 PM):
/Djinns aren't the strongest by far. There are things in the planes that we ourselves try not to wake from their slumber./
Shadowcaller says (9:02 PM):
/Yes, but its the strongest force we know./
Wolfbane says (9:03 PM):
/Consider yourself lucky to think they are the strongest. The others… imagine things twice the size of your little mountains with a cold intelligence that none can compare with./
Shadowcaller says (9:04 PM):
/Right… sounds like things from the deep realm./
Shadowcaller says (9:05 PM):
(Except that normal rules don't apply there so any creature would be torn appart by just going there.)
(How are you doing happy?)
Wolfbane says (9:06 PM):
/These creatures hold an anger that started well before your plane was born. I don't know what they would do should they ever be summoned to this realm./
Shadowcaller says (9:07 PM):
/How are the planes separated?/
Happy says (9:08 PM):
(I'm still here.)
Shadowcaller says (9:08 PM):
(Tired or?)
Wolfbane says (9:11 PM):
/They…aren't exactly separate. Imagine sheets of paper, laying on top of each other, pressed together. Then imagine another sheet pressed against the side so they all touched that one. The single sheet is this plane. All the other planes are "touching" it./
Wolfbane says (9:12 PM):
(I hope that makes sense)
Shadowcaller says (9:13 PM):
(Well… he do know what a sheet of paper is and different worlds that weren't supposed to hold our type of life aren't really supposed to make sense to our way of thinking.)
Wolfbane says (9:13 PM):
(I just meant the theory behind it)
Shadowcaller says (9:14 PM):
/Hmmm… intresting. I know that you are made up of elemental energy and that we somehow can control it. Any idea how that works?/
Wolfbane says (9:16 PM):
/I'm not entirely sure, but I think it is less control and more of "borrow" from the elemtal plane./
Shadowcaller says (9:16 PM):
(I take Happy's non-reply as a yes >.>)
Wolfbane says (9:16 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:16 PM):
Shadowcaller says (9:17 PM):
Wolfbane says (9:17 PM):
/You can't create or destroy energy. Surely you knew that?/
Shadowcaller says (9:17 PM):
/Yes, of course./
Wolfbane says (9:17 PM):
/And it all comes from somewhere and goes somewhere./
Shadowcaller says (9:17 PM):
/Elemental energy always shift./
Shadowcaller says (9:18 PM):
/Yes, but any idea why certain mortals, humans especially, can summon energy from your planes?/
Shadowcaller says (9:19 PM):
(He don't need to know >.>)
Shadowcaller says (9:20 PM):
(or rather "it".)
Wolfbane says (9:21 PM):
(Actually, he'll know since he is rather intelligent and has been around for a /long/ time)
Shadowcaller says (9:22 PM):
(pokes Happy.)
Wolfbane says (9:22 PM):
/Maybe because you are all chaotic in nature? I can only spin theories in this area./
(She has been speaking in the other chat)
Happy says (9:23 PM):
(what am I being poked for?)
Shadowcaller says (9:23 PM):
(Just seeing if your tired )
Happy says (9:23 PM):
(a bit)
Shadowcaller says (9:23 PM):
/But shouldn't we all have magic then? And we aren't really chaotic…/
Wolfbane says (9:24 PM):
/Not chaotic in thought, but in your entire being. Maybe a few more than others. As I said, I am not well versed in this topic./
Shadowcaller says (9:25 PM):
/Bah, I'm not chaotic in being./
Shadowcaller says (9:26 PM):
(Actually, there is a reason for it.)
Wolfbane says (9:27 PM):
/Then how is it that you can use magic?/
Shadowcaller says (9:28 PM):
/Some other reason? Its in the blood after all, I doubt "chaos" is in the blood./
Wolfbane says (9:30 PM):
She can feel a mental shrug. /Perhaps, perhaps not. Maybe it is both./
Shadowcaller says (9:31 PM):
/Hmph, well I would know if I had a "chaotic being"./
*I were
Shadowcaller says (9:32 PM):
/I'm the least chaotic bening around here, and I'm almost the only one who can do magic./
Wolfbane says (9:33 PM):
/By chaotic, I only meant open to being affected by outside means, such as your enviorment. Maybe being raised on your plane made it so./
Shadowcaller says (9:34 PM):
/What do you mean"raised on your plane"?/
Wolfbane says (9:35 PM):
/Your plane is where almost every other plane meets and connects. It is a junction. That is what makes your plane so different. Maybe that is what makes you what you are and gives some of you abilities to control elements./
Wolfbane says (9:36 PM):
(I hope I am keeping Cessie curious. )
Shadowcaller says (9:36 PM):
/Why me and not anyone else?/
/There are not many wizards you know./
Wolfbane says (9:38 PM):
/The chaos that I was talking about. It is random, it can only be guided, not controlled. You could be a complete accident or some random event such as a little insect flapping it's wings could have caused your creation. I simply do not know.)
(Whoot! Go Chaos Theory! =D)
Shadowcaller says (9:39 PM):
/Eh, it still make no sense as the ability clearly is in the blood./
Happy says (9:39 PM):
(chaos in the dna)
Shadowcaller says (9:39 PM):
(It can't be chaos of it follows a pattern.)
Wolfbane says (9:39 PM):
/As I said, it can be "guided". Possibly through blood or other events./
Shadowcaller says (9:40 PM):
/I keep my own theories about the matter…/
Wolfbane says (9:40 PM):
*mental shrug* /Very well. Any other questions?/
Wolfbane says (9:41 PM):
(I like my theory personally >.>)
Shadowcaller says (9:42 PM):
/Goldie don't have this gift right?/
Wolfbane says (9:42 PM):
/What gift? Magic?/
Shadowcaller says (9:43 PM):
(eh its way too chaotic for her, and there is stuff about how humans, dwarves and elves were created that reveals more…)
/The ability to control elemental energy, "magic" is just a commoner term./
Wolfbane says (9:44 PM):
/Not that I know of. I only unlocked what was already there./
Shadowcaller says (9:44 PM):
/What was there?/
Wolfbane says (9:47 PM):
/She seemed somehow… connected to my plane. I don't know how or why. When she gets older, I "may" be able to unlock more for her, but only time will tell./
Shadowcaller says (9:47 PM):
/Intresting… can you "unlock" something from me too?/
Wolfbane says (9:48 PM):
/From what I can tell, you are not connected to my plane. I could perhaps do "something" but I am unsure as to what for now./
Shadowcaller says (9:49 PM):
/Just try and see what happends./
Wolfbane says (9:49 PM):
Give me a few minutes to think of something.
Shadowcaller says (9:49 PM):
/I can summon earth with practice you know./
Shadowcaller says (9:50 PM):
(Okay, my cat will keep me up.)
Shadowcaller says (9:53 PM):
She got her claws at my chest >.>
Wolfbane says (9:55 PM):
(My last ferret just passed away v.v)
Shadowcaller says (9:55 PM):
( )
Wolfbane says (9:57 PM):
(*is still trying to think of something. =P)
Shadowcaller says (9:57 PM):
(Ask happy for help? >.>)
Wolfbane says (9:58 PM):
(I have <.<)
Shadowcaller says (9:58 PM):
Happy says (10:00 PM):
(wrong time of day to ask happy to be creative)
Shadowcaller says (10:00 PM):
(I'm extra creative when I'm super tired )
(Like now…»)
Wolfbane says (10:00 PM):
(I have two ideas, deciding between them)
Shadowcaller says (10:01 PM):
(I see, general theme?)
Wolfbane says (10:01 PM):
(Earth =P)
Shadowcaller says (10:01 PM):
(Ah, like magic spells?)
Wolfbane says (10:02 PM):
(Okay, have it)
/I'm going to need you to clear your mind./
Shadowcaller says (10:02 PM):
(Would be fun if it not was magic spells you know )
Shadowcaller says (10:03 PM):
/Um, of course./
Wolfbane says (10:03 PM):
(It sort of, sort of isn't)
Shadowcaller says (10:03 PM):
/Thats going to be hard for me thought./
/But ill try./
Shadowcaller says (10:04 PM):
/*attempts to clear mind with temporary success./
Wolfbane says (10:04 PM):
/Just try, I don't want to mess up./ Cessie can feel *something* in the back of her head, like a slight tug, then it's gone. /Okay, I found something. Set me on the ground for a moment./
Shadowcaller says (10:06 PM):
She takes out the rock, slightly confused and puts it on the ground. Not really knowing what she is supposed to expect./
Wolfbane says (10:07 PM):
She can feel a small pulse of magic, and a stone starts to grow out of the ground. /Pick it up./
Shadowcaller says (10:07 PM):
She carefully picks it up again
Wolfbane says (10:08 PM):
Its a small jagged rock. /Okay, concentrate on both it and your hands./
Shadowcaller says (10:08 PM):
/What are you doing?/
Wolfbane says (10:08 PM):
(It summoned a rock out of the ground for her. >.>)
/Trust me./
Shadowcaller says (10:09 PM):
/Oh well…/ She concentrates on the rock and her hands.
Wolfbane says (10:09 PM):
Her hands feel slightly warmer than usual as she does this. /Move your hand over the surface of the rock, try to smooth it)
Happy says (10:09 PM):
*rock stabs Cessie* bwahahahaha!
Wolfbane says (10:10 PM):
Shadowcaller says (10:10 PM):
/Smooth it?/
Wolfbane says (10:10 PM):
/Yes, try to smooth it while concentrating on it/
Shadowcaller says (10:12 PM):
/Very well…/ She concentrates on the rock and carefully runs her hand over its surface.
Shadowcaller says (10:13 PM):
*cat stabs Happy* bwahahaha
Wolfbane says (10:13 PM):
As her hands move over the rough edges, they resist her at first, but begin to smooth out like hard clay.
Shadowcaller says (10:14 PM):
While she kind of excpected that, she's intrested of its possibilities /What did you do to me? I can shape stone? How dose it work?/
Wolfbane says (10:16 PM):
/I only unlocked what was already there. All you are doing is "guiding" the "chaos" or "energies" from my elemental plane./ She can hear a mental smile. /Eventually, given enough time, I will be able to teach all this to Goldie and more since she is much more connected to my plane than you are./
Shadowcaller says (10:18 PM):
/Right… but I'm the wizard here. What did I do exactly? Use elemental energy to bend stone?/
Shadowcaller says (10:19 PM):
(Erhm… wolfen wizards are extremly rare and only exist if they have human blood in their veins.)
Wolfbane says (10:19 PM):
/Not exactly. This isn't magic at all. You are only using your energy from the Earth Plane to manipulate the rock's energy from the same plane./
Wolfbane says (10:20 PM):
/I only allowed you to shift your focus, so to speak/
Shadowcaller says (10:20 PM):
/So… what can I do exactly?/
Wolfbane says (10:21 PM):
/Exactly what you are doing now. You could even rip the rock in half if you wish, or meld two together./
Shadowcaller says (10:22 PM):
/Hm, I never heard anyone with these gifts./ She attempts to make an edge
Wolfbane says (10:24 PM):
She does so easily, even though it is rather dull, but it could potentially be sharpened. /I doubt anyone such as me has had the cause to do this for anyone such as your kind before./
Shadowcaller says (10:24 PM):
/Such as my kind?/ (need… to sleeo
Shadowcaller says (10:25 PM):
(just asnwer the question.)
Wolfbane says (10:25 PM):
/Anyone from this plane./
Shadowcaller says (10:25 PM):
/RIght…/ (continue tomorrow?)
