Exodus 47

Wolfbane says (10:25 PM):
/Anyone from this plane./
Shadowcaller says (10:25 PM):
/RIght…/ (continue tomorrow?)
[14:13] Murska: ork work
[14:13] Happy: ork work?
[14:16] Shadowcaller: /Would you take offence if I summoned energy from your plane? I mean… you have just told me that stones, trees, elementals and all such things are sentient which opens up a whole row of moral issues./
[14:18] Wolfbane: /Like I said, they are not sentient by all means. And no, I wouldn't take offense. Other things may, but "I" wouldn't./
[14:19] Shadowcaller: /So I may have offended certain entities by summoning elemental energy?/
[14:21] Wolfbane: It chuckles. /Certainly they don't know that you did it unless you told them? Energy is being summoned and returned to the planes even as we speak. Its just that a few try to cling to it as some of you do to material things./
[14:22] Wolfbane: (He thinks Cessie's way of looking at things is amusing. <.<)
[14:24] Shadowcaller: (How so?) /Still, it feels like I'm stealing something from you, I always thought that energy was endless within the planes and that the energy I summoned was less then a drop in a sea./
[14:25] Wolfbane: /It is, but that doesn't mean that there aren't those who would like to keep those single drops./
[14:26] Shadowcaller: /Even if they have endless of them? Like subtracting from a endless number?/
[14:27] Wolfbane: /It isn't endless, but close enough. And yes, there are those who are greedy./
[14:27] Shadowcaller: /It isn't? But the energy eventually returns./
[14:29] Shadowcaller: (as a different energy thought—-)
[14:30] Wolfbane: /Yes, that is why I said it is close enough. But, eventually, there is always some tiny fraction of energy lost or converted into something else. The amount is tiny, so in my opinion, no harm is done at all.//
[14:30] Wolfbane: (He is talking about the energy as a whole)
[14:32] Shadowcaller: /I see, so what do the energy from this earth shaping come from then?/
[14:32] Shadowcaller: (Dose is feel like elemental energy?)
[14:33] Wolfbane: (She doesn't really expend it, just uses it to manipulate the rock)
[14:34] Wolfbane: /You don't really use it. You'll always have a tiny connection to most planes. I just allowed your's with mine to be a little 'closer'. So, basically, you are using your own natural energy to shape it./
[14:35] Shadowcaller: /Spirit energy?/
[14:35] Shadowcaller: /That dosen't really make sense…/
[14:35] Wolfbane: /No, it is elemental, but you'll always have this small part that you can't get rid of. I just allowed you to use it./
[14:36] Shadowcaller: /Wait, mortals have elemental energy?/
[14:38] Wolfbane: (blarg! Its too early in the morning to have to think! :P)
[14:38] Shadowcaller: (you do remember how the world was created right? Or "came into being.")
[14:39] Wolfbane: (I'm trying, but I just woke up half an hour ago and am groggy)
[14:39] Shadowcaller: (I think best in the morning, I usually have few moments of clarity before sleepiness settles in.)
[14:42] Murska: (Morning = sleepy late at night = clarity
[14:43] Wolfbane: (Oh, the spirit realm was separated and made the Mortal realm, right?)
[14:43] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[14:43] Wolfbane: (*is trying hard to remember*)
[14:44] Wolfbane: (Cessie needs to stop asking such hard questions. >.>)
[14:44] Wolfbane: (And if the answers don't work, tell me and I will find another)
[14:44] Shadowcaller: (The world was made by a dream of a being known simply as "the dreamer" the first dream was the deep realm, the second dream was the elemental realm and the third dream was the mortal realm,)
[14:44] Shadowcaller: (Its the "current" dream.)
[14:45] Murska: (How exactly is earth elemental energy connected to normal earth, if at all?)
[14:45] Murska: (Sounds to me like an old philosopher failure which has taken a life of it's own :P)
[14:46] Wolfbane: (Umm… through stuffs? It hurts my head thinking about it right now. <.<)
[14:46] Happy: (there's also the possibility that Arik the Rock doesn't have a full understanding of the situation, any more than Cessie does.)
[14:46] Shadowcaller: (Pretty much yeah. The dreams always shift due the movements of "the dancer" that do so to keep the dreamer sleeping.)
[14:47] Shadowcaller: (But thats really complicated stuff and have nothing to do with this.)
[14:47] Wolfbane: (After all, He is only saying what he can theorize)
[14:47] Murska: (Also, this is the 'myth' version. :P)
[14:47] Shadowcaller: (Yes, it is.)
[14:47] Shadowcaller: (Whats the "science version of that?)
[14:48] Murska: (Dreamer = The being the parts of which we are. Dancer = Some inner working of said being which, if it malfunctions, causes the immune defense to destroy us.)
[14:49] Shadowcaller: (The mother then?)
[14:49] Murska: (Virus?)
[14:49] Shadowcaller: (Actually, the dancer would be defined as a virus.)
[14:50] Shadowcaller: (By the myth version, the dancer is something that needs to maintain the dream to live. The mother is trying to end the dream.)
[14:50] Murska: (But the planes/mortals/whatever need the dream to exist)
[14:50] Murska: (Right?)
[14:50] Shadowcaller: (They are the dreams.)
[14:50] Murska: (And the being needs 'em)
[14:51] Murska: (Kinda like we need our cells)
[14:52] Murska: (Hmm. Funny thought for the last chapter of the theoretical book of this story :P)
[14:52] Shadowcaller: (No, by the myth version, this is just an actual dream. While people dream every time they fall asleep, they don't want to sleep forever. The dancer is trying to make the dreamer sleep forever.)
[14:53] Happy: (so the dancer is a friend to mortals?)
[14:53] Murska: (Well, by the science version the word 'dream' is just what we call whatever the thing does)
[14:53] Murska: (Since we don't really understand it's workings)
[14:54] Shadowcaller: (It dosen't care for anything like that, it would destroy all mortals in the world if that would maintain its existance. We are mearly a bi-effect.)
[14:55] Shadowcaller: (If anything that is a part of the dream attempts to distrub it, the dancer will remove that from the dream and anything it have connections to. No one will even know it even existed.)
[14:56] Murska: (Hmm. I wish I had the drive to actually write something of this. Funny idea.)
[14:57] Shadowcaller: (The mother tries to bend the dream the other way, To make it disturb itself, she protects such beings from the dancer and wants the dream to collapse unto itself.)
[14:57] Shadowcaller: (She's "outside" the dream, but yet within it.)
[14:57] Murska: (Thus Mother wants to protect us to help us destroy ourselves while the Dreamer wants to kill us to stop us from destroying ourselves. )
[14:58] Shadowcaller: (basically, if you replace "dreamer" with dancer.)
[14:58] Wolfbane: (Wow, what a messed up world)
[14:58] Wolfbane: =P
[15:00] Murska: (Anyway. Prologue, a little girl tries to find a hiding place in some ruins from some disaster that isn't specified much yet, and happens upon a large book(written by Simone the Goddess of Knowledge?), starts reading it… Then, amongst the chapters of this story there are small blurbs which enlighten the reader about the real structure of our world, and then finally in the epilogue…
[15:00] Murska: (The girl gets to see the world torn apart and destroyed, then the viewpoint zooms out and we see a guy surrounded by doctors. 'The medicine worked! He's awake!')
[15:01] Wolfbane: (That would suck…)
[15:01] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, thats sort of what I was thinking:P)
[15:01] Wolfbane: (All of our work…for nothing)
[15:01] Murska: (Eh?)
[15:02] Wolfbane: (Its like… HP Lovecraft)
[15:02] Murska: (whuh. The universe will end eventually)
[15:02] Murska: (So is all your real life work for nothing?)
[15:02] Wolfbane: (I'm talking about our character's work. =P)
[15:02] Murska: (Same thing.)
[15:02] Murska: (It's their world)
[15:02] Shadowcaller: (Mhm.)
[15:02] Wolfbane: (True, so nevermind)
[15:02] Murska: (If it ends thousands of years after they've lived and fought, why are their deeds for nothing?)
[15:03] Wolfbane: (I'm sure Promise will have passed long before then ansyays.)
[15:03] Wolfbane: (Unless Cessie found real immortality and offered it to everyone in the group. <.<)
[15:03] Shadowcaller: (Anyway…)
[15:03] Wolfbane: (And only if Hope accepted it)
[15:03] Happy: Simone's horsey needs a name
[15:04] Murska: (Hey! I caught it!)
[15:04] Shadowcaller: (Its her horsey?)
[15:04] Shadowcaller: (Can anyone even ride?)
[15:05] Murska: (Didn't we use mounts at some point… or not… *shrug*)
[15:05] Wolfbane: /I am only theorizing. I don't know how I can do that, or what I did, I'm just trying to put it into words/
[15:05] Happy: (Hope knows how to ride. And yes, we used horses once on the tree)
[15:05] Wolfbane: (Promise wouldn't like to ride a horse. <.<)
[15:06] Murska: (implying horses brought up there aren't THAT rare, thus I suppose Cessie, Hope and Aegnor know how to ride at least to some extent)
[15:06] Happy: (I remember Cessie was very sore afterwards)
[15:06] Shadowcaller: (Err.. yeah.)
[15:06] Murska: (Heh. She probably didn't much care for the forced riding lessons on nobles.)
[15:07] Wolfbane: (If they all start riding, Promise will just use the mask to make himself into that very big wolf. /If/ he remembers the mask. Its been a long time. >.>)
[15:07] Happy: (On a somewhat related note, I imagine people who ride horses regularly are great in bed >.> )
[15:07] Shadowcaller: /I'm also theoryzing,,,/
[15:07] Shadowcaller: *twitch*
[15:07] Wolfbane: (*keeps his mouth shut and is trying not to snicker*)
[15:08] Murska: (I've only ridden once. :P)
[15:08] Murska: (wasn't that fun)
[15:08] Shadowcaller: /have you ever come in contact with a djinn?/
[15:08] Happy: (I rode once when I was a teenager. A short ride, and my thighs ached for days.)
[15:08] Murska: (Also wasn't Promise supposed to lose that mask ages ago :P)
[15:08] Shadowcaller: (He have lost it…)
[15:08] Happy: (He left it with Hope when he went to the spirit realm)
[15:09] Wolfbane: (Seriously, why would he need it in the spirit realm?)
[15:09] Wolfbane: (The only thing he took was his spear which he lost)
[15:09] Happy: (Hope hasn't touched it sense then. It creeps her out.)
[15:09] Wolfbane: (Maybe when Zubera handed Simone the mask, it was the same one?)
[15:10] Murska: (Hm. Well, it's technically much more imba/efficient than a spear as a weapon)
[15:10] Murska: (So I don't see how the argument 'why take it into an unknown/dangerous area' works)
[15:10] Shadowcaller: (Djinns are of all planes, they are extremly powerful and very hard to bind… wizards often use them to "grant wishes".)
[15:10] Wolfbane: (Hey, at least I didn't turn into a dragon like you two wanted. :P)
[15:11] Murska: (Turn into the Dreamer)
[15:11] Murska: (So we can have our own private universe)
[15:11] Wolfbane: /I haven't and I'd rather I didn't have to meet one./
[15:12] Shadowcaller: (Right… like that would work, I have already limitations on the mask.) /You would not take offence if I attempted to bind one for a tiny little favor would you?/
[15:12] Shadowcaller: /I would let… do you have genders?/
[15:12] Happy: {the argument 'why take it into an unknown/dangerous area' isn't really applicable. It doesn't matter /why/ he left it with Hope. He /did/ it, IC, back when it was played out.)
[15:13] Shadowcaller: /You refere Goldie as a "she" and so on…"
[15:13] Wolfbane: /Seriously? If you can trick one of those things, go for it./ There is a pause. /I'm… not sure, but I percieve myself as male if that is what you ask./
[15:13] Shadowcaller: /What defines a male exactly?/
[15:14] Murska: (true, but then the for the argument 'he did something(in the past)' you have to prove time exists… :P)
[15:14] Wolfbane: /I'm not sure. I never really thought about it./
[15:14] Shadowcaller: /Well, if you see yourself as one…/
[15:15] Wolfbane: /Well, what defines "you" as female then?/
[15:16] Shadowcaller: /Phyhsical attributes?/
[15:16] Wolfbane: /Then I guess that would be a difference for us then. I just never thought about it before. But, I am fairly young by our standards./
[15:17] Shadowcaller: /So some of you define yourself as female and others as male?/
[15:18] Wolfbane: /Yes. More of us have to come from somewhere I guess./
[15:18] Wolfbane: He sounds confused and very puzzled.
[15:19] Shadowcaller: (That is a bit strange in a genderless world as the defenitions of "male" and "female" dosen't really exist, where is the line really?) /Do you have sexuall reproduction then?/
[15:20] Wolfbane: /I'm not sure what you mean./
[15:21] Shadowcaller: /Well, do you need to have two partners of different "genders" to have some sort of exhange to create another elemental?/
[15:22] Wolfbane: /I think we are just "formed" but I honestly don't know. I'll have to think on this for a while./
[15:26] Shadowcaller: /You don't how you are created? Well I didn't see any genitals on the elementals I summoned… not that I would recongnize such things…/
[15:26] Wolfbane: /How is it that you reproduce then?/
[15:26] Shadowcaller: *genetials
[15:27] Shadowcaller: /Err… we have sexual reproduction./
[15:27] Wolfbane: /And how exactly does that work?/
[15:27] Wolfbane: (Cessie opened a door that should have stayed close. :P)
[15:27] Wolfbane: closed*
[15:27] Murska: (Heh. AtR's time to ask tough questions? :P)
[15:28] Shadowcaller: /Well, two partners is needed to have a exchange of sort./
[15:28] Shadowcaller: *are
[15:30] Shadowcaller: /Then the "female" will after this exchange will carry an eventual offspring./
[15:30] Shadowcaller: *-will
[15:30] Wolfbane: /Sounds…messy./
[15:30] Shadowcaller: /Messy?/
[15:32] Wolfbane: /How do you carry your offspring? Do they not walk? I'm afraid I am not well versed in mortal repoductive habits./
[15:32] Murska: (Don't worry, Cessie is an expert.)
[15:32] Wolfbane: (*snicker*)
[15:32] Shadowcaller: /Well… there are many different ways actually,/ (*twtich*)
[15:32] Shadowcaller: *twitch
[15:34] Shadowcaller: /I'm not a doctor really but often the offspring is carried within the belly I think./
[15:34] Shadowcaller: /Then they sort of pop out really. Of course, different animals on the mortal plane have different ways./
[15:35] Wolfbane: /"Within" yourself!?!? That is… confusing. I will have to ask you more about this./
[15:36] Happy: ("pop out" XD)
[15:36] Wolfbane: =P
[15:36] Shadowcaller: /Not that *I* have ever done it. It's just that the offpsring needs to develop inside I suppose. Then they are ready to walk the earth./
[15:36] Happy: (I guess Cessie wasn't there when Peya gave birth then…)
[15:36] Shadowcaller: (She wasn't >.>)
[15:37] Wolfbane: (*peya runs into Cessie's tent. baby pops out. she runs off with baby*)
[15:37] Wolfbane: (:P)
[15:37] Murska: (They had enough food ready so the unit popped in the nearest city)
[15:38] Shadowcaller: (Even better:P)
[15:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, that is the best anology you will get from Cessie.)
[15:39] Wolfbane: (True, but what does she have to be embarrassed about? SHe is talking to a rock.)
[15:39] Shadowcaller: (…you don't get her do you?:P)
[15:40] Wolfbane: (Oh, I do. I'll find a way to freak her out again too. Maybe Aegnor someday)
[15:40] Shadowcaller: (Sex needs to be spoken in with as non-sexuall terms as possible to avoid embarrassment.)
[15:40] Murska: (Heh. That will be interesting.)
[15:40] Shadowcaller: (Anyway…)
[15:41] Murska: (Aegnor isn't very easy to freak)
[15:41] Wolfbane: (Trust me, I think I found a way…)
[15:42] Wolfbane: /Sounds interesting. Anything else you would like to ask?/
[15:42] Wolfbane: (And why is everyone suddenly pointing at me in assassins? >.>)
[15:43] Murska: (Hmm. I was halfway through writing my point at you)
[15:43] Wolfbane: …
[15:43] Wolfbane: *whaps*
[15:43] Happy: (when my parents explained to me where babies came from, they went all biological and explained how the sperm and the egg combined to make a baby, which grew inside mommy… but somehow I wasn't quite clear on how the sperm got there. So when I heard the term 'sleeping together' I figured that if you slept in the same bed with a man, you could get pregnant. And after that, I was afraid to sleep next to my baby brother. )
[15:43] Wolfbane: (I already have 3 at me)
[15:43] Murska: (Ow. Just kidding, I had only written like the first quarter)
[15:43] Murska: (I just want you lynched)
[15:44] Wolfbane: (heh)
[15:44] Wolfbane: (WHy?)
[15:44] Murska: (Because you made me be late from school today)
[15:44] Shadowcaller: /Anything you would like to ask? I just want general advice on how to bind a djinn if possible./
[15:45] Wolfbane: /I wouldn't know how to bind a djinn, but I recommend doing so with as many precautions as possible. And don't ask for too much.)
[15:45] Wolfbane: /*
[15:45] Shadowcaller: (brb, taking out the dog and taking a shower, Wolfy can be the GM for Simone and Aegnor in the meantime?:P)
[15:45] Happy: (I need to take some mail down to the post box down the street.)
[15:46] Wolfbane: In the meantime, Goldie goes back to hiding from Promise.
[15:46] Shadowcaller: (Anyhow… brb.)
[15:47] Murska: Meanwhile… A quiet 'twang', as the black-painted shaft of an arrow is let loose. The walking soldier barely has time to register the noise when his throat is impaled. Shouts…
[15:49] Happy: (stop killing mah npcs! D=)
[15:49] Happy: (* D= )
[15:50] Wolfbane: Meanwhile, back at Caster's tower…"Back! Back you foul beasties!" shouts Caster as he looses another fireball on the horde of ravanous rabid wombats…
[15:50] Wolfbane: :P
[15:50] Happy: anyway, brb mail
[15:50] Murska: (Your NPCs? Oo)
[15:51] Murska: (I created him from the mists of nothingness like five seconds ago and you claim him already. »)
[15:51] Happy: (I play Helena, Helena claims the villagers as under her protections, ergo all the villagers are under my protection)
[15:51] Murska: (yeah… but that was a random soldier on another continent)
[15:52] Happy: (Ah. Carry on then)
[15:52] Happy: and brb mail
[15:52] Wolfbane: (Does he shout "Curse you Arthur Dent!"?
[15:52] Murska: (Carry on killing. :P)
[15:52] Wolfbane: )
[15:52] Murska: (No.)
[15:52] Murska: (But the arrow thinks that as it snaps)
[15:52] Wolfbane: hehe
[16:02] Happy: (blah. mail posted)
[16:04] Wolfbane: What is Hope doing?
[16:05] Happy: ordinary everyday stuff?
[16:07] Wolfbane: Promise walks up to her, looking slightly worried. "Have you seen Goldie? She was supposed to be hiding, and I lost her. SHe crossed the stream several times, but then ran through the main camp."
[16:09] Happy: "No, I haven't. Better just call for her."
[16:10] Wolfbane: "Did I win Mister Promise?" says a voice under the flap of a nearby tent.
[16:11] Wolfbane: Promise's shoulder's slump and he has a defeated look. "Yes, you win Goldie. Again."
[16:11] Happy: "Come here, sweetie, let me take a look at you."
[16:12] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[16:12] Wolfbane: Goldie unrolls herself from the tent flap and smiles at the two before going to Hope.
[16:13] Happy: Hope picks her up and checks her heart rate first, before blanking to look inside.
[16:16] Wolfbane: Goldie waits.
[16:17] Happy: (I guess I was waiting for you to tell me her condition. Or should I decide that?)
[16:18] Murska: (She's all alive and well, except for the distinct lack of heartbeat? :P)
[16:18] Wolfbane: (I thought you would be)
[16:19] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is still talking to the rock, what is Simone and Aegnor doing? Shadow was going back to camp.)
[16:20] Murska: (Deciding for a name for the horse and then bringing it back)
[16:26] Shadowcaller: /Hm, what should I ask for then?/
[16:26] Happy: (I think i'm going to have to go rest now. Sorry)
[16:26] Shadowcaller: (Okay, see you later Happy.)
[16:26] Wolfbane: /Something simple. ANything complicated and they will twist it./
[16:27] Shadowcaller: /True enough, I read about that./
[16:28] Shadowcaller: (You read Cessies lecture of djinn summoning?) /Was there anything you wanted to ask?/
[16:29] Shadowcaller: (And by the way, I would hardly call her an expert on that reproduction thingy >.>)
[16:29] Wolfbane: /I can think of nothing at this time./
[16:30] Shadowcaller: /Very well, do you have a real name then?/
[16:31] Wolfbane: /I used to be called Ferrous before I came here./
[16:31] Wolfbane: (I know unoriginal. :P)
[16:31] Shadowcaller: /Thats a better name then the one I came up with. I wouldn't really be able to call you that./
[16:32] Wolfbane: /Why not?/
[16:32] Shadowcaller: /It's the name of… um… do you know what a family member is?/
[16:33] Wolfbane: /Yes, I see why now/
[16:34] Shadowcaller: /Its the name of my brother. Its a biological bond formed by those who are reprodiced from the same "female"./
[16:35] Shadowcaller: *reproduced
[16:36] Shadowcaller: /Okay… so you are just "formed" then?/
[16:38] Wolfbane: /That is what I had believed. Until I began talking to you. I need to look into it more./
[16:40] Shadowcaller: /Do so… we should have started moving some time ago. I wonder whats taking Aegnor so long…/
[16:41] Happy: *hugs and poof*
[16:41] Shadowcaller: (Bye.)
[16:42] Shadowcaller: /You know who Aegnor is right? And the others?/
[16:42] Wolfbane: /Yes. I have. I can see in this form./
[16:43] Shadowcaller: /Good, just why did you stay hidden so long?/
[16:44] Wolfbane: /If I use too much energy or magic, the one who summoned me will find me./
[16:45] Shadowcaller: /Explain to me again why you don't return? For me it takes an effort to make things remain here./
[16:46] Wolfbane: /He cut me off from my plane. I don't know what he did, but I can barely feel my connection to it. It isn't enough to let me return and barely enough for me to sustain myself./
[16:47] Shadowcaller: /Intresting… but it leaves you almost powerless?/
[16:48] Wolfbane: /Very. And I must be careful not to use too much of what I have./
[16:48] Shadowcaller: (brb, food..)
[17:02] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[17:02] Wolfbane: *poke*
[17:02] Wolfbane: …
[17:02] Shadowcaller: /Who do you know the names of in the camp?/
[17:03] Wolfbane: /I know you, Aegnor, Hope, Promise, Helena, and Freedom mostly/
[17:04] Shadowcaller: /Ah… do you know who they are?/
[17:04] Wolfbane: /Yes./
[17:04] Shadowcaller: /Good, then *I* don't need to explain what everyone do around here./
[17:05] Shadowcaller: /Are you aware of whats going on then?/
[17:06] Wolfbane: /I was at your meeting with the one you called Helios, so I think I know a little./
[17:08] Shadowcaller: /I don't need to go into the details but we are going from point A to point B that happends to be away from the camp./ (hehe, I knew things that would have made this conversation way more uncomfortable for Cessie
)
[17:10] Shadowcaller: /We will likely be gone for a very long time, or not come back at all./
[17:11] Wolfbane: /Its… sad to hear. It'll break Goldie's heart to learn that you will be leaving./
[17:13] Shadowcaller: /It's the best way, she won't be safe with me. This camp is her only home. She won't be comfortable where we are going./
[17:14] Shadowcaller: /And frankly, I'm no good with children… you know what a child is do you?/
[17:15] Wolfbane: /She… means a lot to me. She kept me from going over the brink. Yes, I know what one is. And from what I've seen, you are perfectly fine with them./
[17:18] Shadowcaller: /Back home, I would be seen like a child myself really. While I can speak with them, I can't take care of them you see? I'm just with other people take care of such things./
[17:18] Shadowcaller: *used with
[17:20] Wolfbane: /Being with you makes Goldie happy, but I'll try to explain it to her. Not that I'll like doing so./
[17:21] Shadowcaller: /*mental sigh* I don't understand what made her so attached to me. I party wish we never met so this wouldn't be so hard for either of us./
[17:21] Shadowcaller: *partly
[17:22] Wolfbane: /If she hadn't met you, there would probably be a good chance that she wouldn't be doing so well right now./
[17:23] Shadowcaller: /I'm sure Hope still would have healed her… these things don't go unoticed after all./
[17:28] Wolfbane: /I'm sure, but would she have been found in time if she hadn't slept in your tent that night?/
[17:28] Shadowcaller: /…I don't like to speculate in that. She's fine now, thats all that matter./
[17:30] Wolfbane: /I'd still like Hope to make sure, but thank you./
[17:32] Shadowcaller: /No problems… Ferrous./
[17:33] Shadowcaller: (Fast forward until Ferrous have told Goldie about it?)
[17:33] Shadowcaller: (She will give her back the rock of course.)
[17:33] Wolfbane: (Well, Hope is trying to check on her right now, so we have to wait for Happy)
[17:34] Shadowcaller: (I guess. Do we have anything to do then?)
[17:35] Shadowcaller: (Maybe we should disscuss how the elemental plane really works?:P)
[17:35] Wolfbane: (Ugh. :P)
[17:36] Shadowcaller: (Well, its easier to make a game work if you have a prime set of rules.)
[17:36] Shadowcaller: (But with more then one GM, rules keeps adding up o.O)
[17:37] Shadowcaller: (Especially when it comes to magic. What can it do and what can't it do really?)
[17:40] Wolfbane: (Well, I was trying to keep this from being mostly magical. I hope the description of the ability works)
[17:40] Wolfbane: (And I see Cessie using a lot of free time using it. :P)
[17:41] Shadowcaller: (Right now, it takes an mental effort for a wizard to bring energy in from the elemental plane and maintain it here. Spirit energy takes a more physical and spiritual tool when its used. Now you also introduced "natural" elemental talents that can be unlocked.)
[17:41] Shadowcaller: (Spirit things don't need to be maintained thought.)
[17:42] Wolfbane: (Well, it always sounds complicated when you say that. =P)
[17:42] Shadowcaller: (Gods… should we set up some rules for them too?)
[17:42] Shadowcaller: (What sounds complicated?:P)
[17:45] Shadowcaller: (Right now, gods are mortal beings that can be trasformed into gods due either elemental or spiritual magic. Once they are gods they need followers to keep their own energy up. Gods sort of subely feed upon mortals spirtual energy (that they don't need anymore.) Gods can also divide their power into mortals to make them servants that can travel between the gods and the mortals realm…)
[17:46] Shadowcaller: (ANything else?)
[17:46] Wolfbane: (That makes sense)
[17:48] Shadowcaller: (Then we have gods manifesting… I think that takes a tool on their spirit energy to be in the mortal realm. And gods are also weak against legions since a legion weakens everything with spirit energy. But most gods don't know about that.)
[17:49] Shadowcaller: (Gods are basically spirit/elemental spirits really, that needs to feed on leftover spirit energy from mortals.)
[17:52] Shadowcaller: (While elementals only can be summoned here, spirits can will themselves into existance due their close connection to the mortal realm. But this takes a tool on them so they can't remain here forever.)
[17:53] Shadowcaller: (Certain things in the mortal realm such as silver for spirits and (not yer decided yet) for elementals weakens them.)
[17:53] Shadowcaller: *yet
[17:53] Shadowcaller: (…anything else?)
[17:55] Shadowcaller: (Right, the differance between a druid and a spirit/spirit speakers.)
[17:55] Shadowcaller: (Suggestions?)
[17:56] Wolfbane: (Maybe a druid's abilities are more naturally occuring, like the shape stone that Cessie has?)
[17:57] Wolfbane: (I don't think we have gone against actual druids. Things that called themselves druids, yes, but not actual ones)
[17:57] Shadowcaller: (We haven't, but apperently Kuori is a druid and I think Hope's abilities are druid related.)
[17:58] Wolfbane: (Ah, okay)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (Or *was* a druid.)
[17:59] Shadowcaller: (So, what are Hopes abilities really? What are they based on?)
[18:00] Wolfbane: (I don't know. Maybe a mix of spirit and natural?)
[18:02] Shadowcaller: (Possibly… its more of her own energies. I think druids actually bend spirit energy while spirits/dragons/spirit speakers just use it.)
[18:04] Wolfbane: (You are the magic expert here. >.>)
[18:06] Shadowcaller: (It's like the differance between… having something natural but to cetain limits or bend that nautral something with training but with no real limits.)
[18:07] Wolfbane: Hehe I just had the image of Cessie going up to a wall saying "Cessie Smash!" and ripping it apart with her bare hands.
[18:07] Wolfbane: :P
[18:07] Shadowcaller: (Certain spirits have certain abilities they are really good at. Such as Yuki's frost kiss. But a druid can use all of them.)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: (Bah!)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: (Besidesm its not that powerful is it? o.O)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: *besides
[18:08] Wolfbane: You can /shape/ rock. That means scooping it out, tunneling, just about anything she can think of with it. It only takes time and physical exertion.
[18:09] Wolfbane: It is like hard clay
[18:09] Shadowcaller: (Well… it still makes walls that aren't made of wood no hinder at all. Dungeons becomes quite meaningless, not to mention prisons.)
[18:10] Wolfbane: (It takes a lot of time and physical force though. And with Cessie, she'd rather blast out of a prison)
[18:11] Shadowcaller: (No, if they have commited something that made them come to prison, they must stay.)
[18:12] Shadowcaller: (Can't you limit the ability somehow? It seems rather powerful… not that she would like to get dirty from that.)
[18:12] Wolfbane: (That is how it limits itself. Cessie is a very… clean person. I don't think she'd want to tunnel anyways)
[18:13] Wolfbane: (For anyone else, it would be overpowered)
[18:14] Shadowcaller: (I limited invisibility and flight for example, they are extremly powerful and dose not create creative thinking.)
[18:14] Shadowcaller: (That a IF at least partly should be about.)
[18:14] Wolfbane: (True)
[18:16] Wolfbane: (Well, how about she gets tired faster if she uses it a lot? After all, she /is/ shaping rock. Plus, she isn't that used to doing that much manual labor I think)
[18:16] Wolfbane: (<.<)
[18:16] Shadowcaller: (Nope… she dose not.)
[18:17] Wolfbane: (So, every time she uses it for an extended period of time, say 10-15 minutes, she'll find herself tiring quickly and very hungry since she has used a lot of energy)
[18:18] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… she isn't very strong or have a lot of stamina after all.)
[18:19] Wolfbane: (So, that'll prevent her from making most tunnels and other complicated things.)
[18:20] Murska: (She can still walk through walls tho)
[18:20] Wolfbane: (Small walls, she would be able to make holes in)
[18:20] Wolfbane: (Not walk through. Say walls at most 1ft thick to make holes in before she gets exhausted)
[18:21] Shadowcaller: (New limitation for elemental energy: the summoned energy takes a greater effort to maintain the further away it is from the wizard that summoned it.)
[18:21] Shadowcaller: (Well, its still a very useful ability + that she have magic.)
[18:21] Murska: (well if she can shape stone for 10 minutes)
[18:21] Murska: (and a wall is just 'put hand through wall'
[18:22] Wolfbane: (It is like working hard clay, not water)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (Hm, is Goldie able to use elemental energy?)
[18:23] Murska: (If I can use a stick to hit through a normal wall…)
[18:23] Wolfbane: (Well, Ferrous will teach her everything he can.)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (The hard part is, the more cool abilities you give to your characters, the less they have to think.)
[18:25] Wolfbane: (It also gives them more to think /with/)
[18:25] Shadowcaller: (Why use planning when you just, for example, can use Aegnors evil flute?)
[18:25] Wolfbane: (Because Aegnor doesn't like using it.)
[18:26] Shadowcaller: (True, but then you also need to make every challenge much harder with supernatural foes and stuff.)
[18:26] Wolfbane: (Not really. The prison escape was harder than all hell)
[18:27] Shadowcaller: (Well… I should have made the walls shorter really. My misstake. Then it got overpowered o.O)
[18:27] Wolfbane: heh
[18:28] Shadowcaller: (Combat isn't everything in freeform. Most obstacles are buildings, natural hinders and such.)
[18:29] Murska: (Freeform, bah :P)
[18:29] Murska: (go IF style)
[18:29] Murska: (The obstacle is the GM not telling you what to pay attention to clearly enough)
[18:29] Shadowcaller: (And if you can pass them very easily, it loses some of it's tactic.)
[18:33] Shadowcaller: (I try to make every character go in one direction. Aegnor for example, is very good at convincing people, he is also quite good in combat with a few supernatural abilities. But his main power is his talking skills really. Hope is more of a full warrior with a few more powerful magic abilities such as anti-magic anf healing.)
[18:34] Shadowcaller: (Simone hardly have any combat abilities at all but have some sneaky skills and conversiton skills.)
[18:35] Murska: (Hope is the walking band-aid)
[18:35] Shadowcaller: (Cessie have all the time focused on support for the others. While she can kill people with her magic. She mainly uses it to support others.)
[18:36] Shadowcaller: (Promise… he is the full warrior with magic resistance and a few useful racials.)
[18:37] Wolfbane: (yay! I'm usefule! )
[18:38] Wolfbane: useful*
[18:38] Murska: (bah, not really :P)
[18:38] Murska: (Except you keep the walking band-aid from breakdowning)
[18:38] Shadowcaller: (Hope is more then band-aid really, if she used her abilities on other things >.>)
[18:39] Murska: (:P)
[18:39] Murska: (Well, her healing can be used for epic touch-attacks)
[18:39] Shadowcaller: (yeah
)
[18:39] Wolfbane: heh
[18:39] Shadowcaller: (And she have an anti-magic attack.)
[18:39] Shadowcaller: *elemental magic
[18:40] Murska: (Well, that was more like 'turn undead' at first
[18:40] Shadowcaller: (mhm.)
[18:40] Shadowcaller: (We changed it thought.)
[18:41] Murska: (Anyway, I hope it'll be interesting when she figures out the touch attack IC)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, it drains her a lot however.)
[18:42] Wolfbane: (I don't think she'd like to hurt people with it though. >.>)
[18:42] Murska: (Well she can just go for 'overload one artery = kill')
[18:42] Murska: (That's why I'm waiting… It'll be in a situation like 'YOU HURT PROMISE?')
[18:42] Wolfbane: (Heh)
[18:45] Murska: (then again, there's no point in 'this is for healing so I won't use it to hurt')
[18:46] Shadowcaller: (And it only works on organic foes.)
[18:48] Murska: (I doubt she can easily kill something whose innards she has no idea about, too)
[18:49] Shadowcaller: (Any direction you wish your characters should take?)
[18:49] Shadowcaller: (True.)
[18:49] Wolfbane: (Better melee skills? <.<)
[18:49] Murska: (no idea really)
[18:49] Shadowcaller: (I'm not really sure about the shape stone ability for Cessie, it dosen't fit with her supportive role.)
[18:49] Murska: (he has so many abilities already :P)
[18:51] Shadowcaller: (Can you count them up?)
[18:51] Shadowcaller: (Just so I haven't forgotten anything.)
[18:51] Murska: (It's an utility spell so it doesn't need a combat role)
[18:51] Shadowcaller: (huh?)
[18:52] Wolfbane: (The shape stone ability)
[18:56] Shadowcaller: (I wasn't talking about combat role. More generally, its easy to abuse.)
[18:57] Shadowcaller: (I can make everything made of mental into a weapon for example. For a non-wizard I would think that was a really cool ability. But when you already have magic, it seems a bit…)
[18:59] Murska: (Metal isn't stone)
[18:59] Shadowcaller: (What do you define as stone then?)
[18:59] Wolfbane: A rock
[18:59] Wolfbane: =P
[19:02] Shadowcaller: Right… but there are many types of earth thought. The real problem I have is that this ability fits more with a melee type of character… I would be like Aegnor suddenly gained magic abilities on top of his spirit ones. It dosen't really fit… unless… Hmm…
[19:02] Wolfbane: Its not really a melee type of ability though
[19:05] Shadowcaller: True, but it have a lot of possibilities and could be added on.
[19:08] Shadowcaller: Cessie, the earthbender… I'm going more on her magic abilites. Possibly with a few elemental add ons mind you. But more of passive abilites
[19:13] Murska: I want moar fire
[19:13] Murska: that's her specialty after all
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Yes, so do I
[19:13] Shadowcaller: But I can't really come up with anything…
[19:13] Wolfbane: Firewall?
[19:13] Wolfbane: <.<
[19:16] Murska: Fire bolts, control over fire, Firaga(:P)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: What?
[19:17] Wolfbane: Inferno? (A small vortex of spinning flame)
[19:17] Shadowcaller: Whats a firebolt? Whats the differance between it and a fireball?
[19:18] Shadowcaller: And whats firaga?
[19:18] Murska: Firebolt = you fire lessay 12 small blasts from your, say, fingers, possibly homing
[19:18] Murska: firaga = Final Fantasy reference
[19:18] Shadowcaller: And it is?
[19:19] Murska: The third level of Fire
[19:21] Shadowcaller: And what is?:P
[19:21] Murska: What is fire?
[19:21] Murska: …man
[19:21] Murska: a reaction
[19:21] Shadowcaller: Invite me again, changing computer
[19:22] * Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
[19:22] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (Shadowcaller) has joined the conversation.
[19:22] Wolfbane: there
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Well, what is the "third level" of fire?
[19:23] Murska: Firaga
[19:24] Shadowcaller: Yes, but what is the differance between normal fire and firaga?
[19:25] Murska: Firaga is the third level? Moar powerful by a lot
[19:25] Shadowcaller: So… it deals more damage or something? In game terms that is
[19:26] Murska: exactly
[19:28] Murska: If I didn't know better I might almost think that you HAVEN'T played FF
[19:29] Shadowcaller: I haven't
[19:29] Shadowcaller: None of them actually
[19:29] Murska: blasphemy. *sigh*
[19:31] Shadowcaller: Hmm….
[19:32] Shadowcaller: Fire can only be used to kill :S
[19:32] Murska: and cook
[19:32] Wolfbane: No, it can be used to warm people too
[19:32] Shadowcaller: Yes, for the rest of their lives
[19:32] Wolfbane: =P
[19:34] Shadowcaller: More ideas for fire abilities that isn't just "summon fire"
[19:34] Shadowcaller: Maybe heat aura… no…
[19:34] Wolfbane: hmm…
[19:35] Wolfbane: brb
[19:35] Murska: I totally want her to be able to make herself look like Cessie5
[19:35] Shadowcaller: Haha, why?:P
[19:35] Murska: because it's awesome :P
[19:36] Shadowcaller: Not were useful thought, you will torch everything… including your clothes o.O
[19:37] Shadowcaller: But it might be slightly awsome… ninjas won't catch you at least
[19:38] Murska: well immunity to fire and fireproof clothing ofc
[19:39] Shadowcaller: Immunity to fire… that would be something passive… bah, why wasn't arik the rock a fire elemental instead?:P
[19:39] Wolfbane: Because it would be hard for a little wolfen girl to carry around. :P
[19:40] Murska: drop the girl then. :P
[19:40] Wolfbane: …
[19:40] Wolfbane: *whaps*
[19:41] Wolfbane: He wouldn't leave her anyways
[19:41] Murska: hmpf
[19:41] Murska: then we'd have to retcon her never existing
[19:41] Murska: nah
[19:41] Murska: too big of a hassle
[19:42] Shadowcaller: *whaps Murska* Maybe he can unlock other types of elemental abilities eh?
[19:42] Murska: hmpf. It's clear I'm not wanted here then.
[19:43] Shadowcaller: Aww…:(
[19:43] Shadowcaller: But you suggested evil things o.O
[19:43] Wolfbane: He isn't a fire elemental though. He only has a connection to the earth plane
[19:43] Shadowcaller: Eh, he said all the planes weren't really separated anyway
[19:44] Murska: Off to sleep since SC is always serious and that means he really wants to physically harm me over something I said.
[19:45] Shadowcaller: Hey, I'm not always serious >.>
[19:46] Murska: Well, /I'm/ not going to sleep! SO THERE.
[19:46] Shadowcaller: :)
[19:47] Murska: …wait… :P
[19:48] Wolfbane: =P
[19:48] Wolfbane: They aren't, but maybe if he is ever exposed to fire…
[19:48] Murska: Someone melt the thing.
[19:49] Murska: Then it'll change form to fire energy, right? :P
[19:51] Shadowcaller: Thats what they usually do, when they can return to their plane. Not sure what happends if they can't thought…
[19:52] Murska: well, what better way than to test
[19:52] Murska: if it dies, no big deal
[19:52] Murska: it was temporarily named Arik, after all
[19:52] Shadowcaller: Man, Aegnor have two large hate objects
[19:52] Murska: heh
[19:52] Murska: more like me
[19:53] Shadowcaller: And Aegnor… and Hope… and Michicora… Not sure about Happy herself thought…
[19:54] Murska: Hmm. I'll have to change my character's name…
[19:54] Murska: one of his letters is A
[19:54] Murska: horrible
[19:54] Murska: :P
[19:54] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[19:55] Shadowcaller: Hm, but Cessie is still related to him
[19:56] Murska: Oh god. Moral dilemma. Purge the horrible affliction or not…
[19:56] Shadowcaller: o.O
[19:57] Wolfbane: hehehe
[19:58] Shadowcaller: :(
[19:58] Murska: aww *hugs* I wouldn't do that.
[19:59] Murska: …FOR THE EMPRAH! ?
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Huh?
[20:00] Murska: Burn the Heretic! Kill the Mutant! PURGE THE UNCLEAN!
[20:00] Wolfbane: heh
[20:00] Murska: okay, so
[20:00] Murska: I give thee a quiz.
[20:01] Murska: It consists of one question with two possible answers.
[20:01] Murska: What do we do now? A: RP. B: Who cares, I'm going to play drums.
[20:01] Shadowcaller: Lets see… what types of drums are these?
[20:02] Murska: No, I didn't ask for airspeed velocity.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: I'm up for RP, but I'm not reallly not sure what. I could intorduce you to the mountains… or we could do some conversation in another time line
[20:03] Murska: 'Hello mr. Mountain.' 'Oh, hi there Aegnor.'
[20:03] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[20:04] Wolfbane: Maybe Aegnor bumps into Cessie and asks whats up?
[20:04] Shadowcaller: Well… also, Cessie is not that good on that whole reproductive thing you know:P
[20:05] Shadowcaller: Sure, we could do that… but we already had a lot of Cessie/Aegnor conversations thought >.>
[20:05] Murska: cuz they're fun. :P
[20:06] Murska: for us two, though not the others probably
[20:06] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[20:06] Murska: So, did I miss the Cessie/Seren or did it not happen yet?
[20:06] Shadowcaller: Nope
[20:06] Shadowcaller: Errr… you mean he meeting her in this timeline?
[20:07] Murska: Michi and Aegnor convos are funny, though rare. :P
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Really? Well we could do a Michi/Promise/Aegnor conversation >.>
[20:07] Murska: Naib hasn't talked to anyone for ages…
[20:07] Murska: or done anything else either for that matter :P
[20:07] Wolfbane: I'd do a Promise/Naib, but they'd have nothing to talk about.
[20:08] Wolfbane: <.<
[20:08] Murska: true
[20:08] Shadowcaller: Bah, nothing to talk about? Just make up something
[20:09] Murska: I can see it… 'Promise spots a random human. 'Hey there.' He turns. '…hi?' '…uh, yeah. Hello.' '…yeah, hi.' '…' '*smacks player through fourth wall*'
[20:10] Shadowcaller: He's not exactly some random human, Hope would have mentioned him and Promise would seek him out just to meet him
[20:10] Wolfbane: <.<
[20:10] Murska: why?
[20:11] Wolfbane: I still want to do a Promise/Saranna one where he accidentally walks into her. Literally.
[20:11] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[20:11] Murska: And drowns in front of Hope. ^^
[20:13] Shadowcaller: Why must you always twist things?:S I have one conversation that actually have plot thought…
[20:13] Shadowcaller: I just didn't remember to use it
[20:13] Shadowcaller: Want to do it? Its Promise
[20:14] Wolfbane: Sure, I guess
[20:14] Shadowcaller: Where is he? Same time line
[20:15] Wolfbane: Right now, with Hope and Goldie, but he could be called away
[20:16] Shadowcaller: He can hear Zuberas voice echo inside his head /Promise?/
[20:16] Wolfbane: /Hello Zubera./
[20:18] Shadowcaller: /There you are… first of all I must say that I'm really sorry to your friends. I should have contacted them about what I'm about to tell you weeks ago./
[20:18] Wolfbane: /Whats wrong?/
[20:19] Shadowcaller: /Have they told you what happend these last weeks?/
[20:20] Wolfbane: /I believe I have heard most of it./
[20:21] Shadowcaller: /Did they tell you of the man that entered my realm?/
[20:23] Wolfbane: /Yes, is something wrong?/
[20:25] Shadowcaller: /Well… I kind of spoke to him./
[20:25] Wolfbane: /What… what?/ He sounds confused.
[20:25] Murska: (You mean, AFTER I crushed his head?)
[20:26] Shadowcaller: /By a spell, necromancy you know? /
[20:26] Wolfbane: /Okay./ *mental nod*
[20:27] Shadowcaller: /He wasn't that willing to talk. But I manintaned his spirit here…/
[20:27] Wolfbane: /What happened?/
[20:29] Shadowcaller: /He told me things… eventually…/
[20:30] Wolfbane: /What things?/ he sounds a little worried.
[20:32] Shadowcaller: /I'm not sure really…. he speaks nonses about "worm touched" and someone named "Erin."/
[20:34] Wolfbane: (does he know the name?)
[20:34] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[20:34] Wolfbane: /Did he say who Erin was?/
[20:34] Shadowcaller: (Unless the other mentioned it.)
[20:35] Shadowcaller: /Some girl he knew. But maybe you can make more of it?/
[20:35] Wolfbane: /I jsut can't remember, thats all. Maybe/
[20:35] Wolfbane: )(*
[20:35] Wolfbane: The above should be in () not //
[20:36] Wolfbane: /Maybe I can. Did he mention anything else?/
[20:37] Wolfbane: brb
[20:40] Shadowcaller: /He talked about some cult, the name "Ignion" was mentioned once./
[20:41] Wolfbane: /… was it a new cult?/ (Ignion was the guy from the tree, right?)
[20:42] Shadowcaller: /New cult? I don't know if it was old or new./ (He was yes.)
[20:44] Wolfbane: /Zubera, did he mention if Ignion was alive?/
[20:44] Murska: (After all we did… »)
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /He just mentioned the name, nothing else./
[20:44] Wolfbane: /That is the name of the person we fought on the Tree. If he is still alive…/
[20:45] Shadowcaller: /Oh, who was he?/
[20:47] Wolfbane: /<insert whatever Promise knows about him>/
[20:49] Happy: (blargh)
[20:49] Happy: (not feeling great)
[20:49] Shadowcaller: /Eww… a walking worm? I'm thankful you destroyed him then. We had one of those while I still was mortal./
[20:50] Wolfbane: /What happened to it?/
[20:52] Shadowcaller: /It died of course, the houses did their work as usual. Not that I really cared… I remember I was working on "The prince of Isgarot".. yes. I was playing queen Sadian actually./
[20:52] Wolfbane: /I would like to see that sometime./
[20:53] Wolfbane: /How did they kill the worm?/
[20:53] Wolfbane: (Or whatever it is)
[20:54] Shadowcaller: /No idea, I wasn't really concerned. I just heard that it existed and they put an stop to it. I also saw some relly… colorful illustations of a college of mine./
[20:56] Shadowcaller: /But it was a great play really… to bad they burned that theather…/
[20:56] Shadowcaller: *too
[20:57] Shadowcaller: /You don't think this Ignion survived you too do you?/
[20:58] Wolfbane: /I really hope not. If he did, it is very bad news for everyone./
[20:59] Shadowcaller: /How did you kill him?/
[21:00] Wolfbane: /<insertstory>/
[21:01] Shadowcaller: /Oh… the tree. That would make a great play you know. In fact, one of my agents told me that someone did a story about it./
[21:01] Wolfbane: /Really?/
[21:03] Shadowcaller: /Yes, some bard… or bards rather./
[21:03] Murska: (Hey! that is our intellectual property! »)
[21:04] Murska: ('Are you sure they weren't pirates?' :P)
[21:05] Shadowcaller: /There was even some drawing… lots of fire./
[21:06] Wolfbane: /I'm sure the fire was from Cessie./ He thinks with a snicker.
[21:07] Shadowcaller: /Hmph, I don't think your even in it./
[21:07] Wolfbane: /Its okay Zubera, I'm sure I'll be in the Epic./
[21:08] Wolfbane: next epic*
[21:09] Wolfbane: (Epic as in painting)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: /If I know bards right, its going to vastly exaggerated./
[21:09] Wolfbane: /I wouldn't tell Aegnor that, it'd go straight to his head./ *chuckle*
[21:10] Murska: (At least they haven't gotten ahold of the Story of the Godslayer. :P)
[21:11] Shadowcaller: (Thats beacuse no one really saw it >.>)
[21:12] Shadowcaller: /Oh, Aegnor… wasn't going to sing to me?/
[21:13] Wolfbane: /I believe he was. I'll ask him if he could the next time we are in your presence./
[21:14] Shadowcaller: /Thanks so much Promise… Oh, one last thing. If you want. Not that I suggest it that is. I just mention it as a possibility you see?… You could speak to him./
[21:15] Wolfbane: /To the… witchar?/
[21:16] Shadowcaller: /Yes, that sort of what I really suggested… Um, sorry for speaking like that./
[21:16] Murska: (I'm tired, but I know if I go to sleep, you'll have stopped RPing for the night when I wake up. v.v
[21:17] Happy: (*hugs Murska*)
[21:17] Wolfbane: /How so? Is it safe for me to do so?/
[21:17] Wolfbane: /No apology needed./
[21:17] Murska: (*hugs* thinking of going to sleep fpr 5-6 hours)
[21:17] Wolfbane: Hope can probably see Promise partly blanked.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: /It would yes. He can only speak you know./
[21:19] Murska: (Hmpf. It took Aegnor like five conversations to learn to hold a single normal one in his mind without blanking and he still can't do more than three.)
[21:19] Wolfbane: (Its with his Goddess, so I assume its easier)
[21:20] Wolfbane: /Can I tell the others first?/
[21:20] Shadowcaller: /Of course. Anything./
[21:20] Murska: (Why would the one you're talking to have anything to do with it? :P)
[21:23] Wolfbane: /Thank you I'll tell them the news./
[21:23] Shadowcaller: /Great! See you in a bit then./
[21:24] Wolfbane: /Goodbye./
[21:25] Shadowcaller: /We are going to see each other soon again.. good bye is so clichee./
[21:25] Murska: (sleep)
[21:25] Murska: (good bye. :P)
[21:25] Wolfbane: (… darnnit)
[21:25] Wolfbane: (Night)
[21:25] Wolfbane: /Then I'll just speak to you later./ *mental smile*
[21:26] Happy: (*hugs murska goodnight* *tucks into bed*)
[21:26] Shadowcaller: (Night.)
[21:27] Shadowcaller: /Yes, Darux!/
[21:27] Wolfbane: ?
[21:28] Shadowcaller: (Its something of another language apperently:P)
[21:29] Wolfbane: /Then I will see you later./
[21:29] Shadowcaller: (So, name of horse.) The connection breaks.
[21:32] Wolfbane: (Happy?)
[21:32] Happy: (Link: http://www.funhorsenames.com/)http://www.funhorsenames.com/
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (Simone decides really.)
[21:33] Happy: (yes, but ooc, help me out)
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (I was thinking that we would come to the mountains before this day was over.)
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (Ai?:P)
[21:33] Wolfbane: (I could actually see Simone naming the horse that)
[21:35] Happy: (can he look like this? (Link: http://www.horsescenemagazine.co.uk/userimages/IKON.jpg)http://www.horsescenemagazine.co.uk/userimages/IKON.jpg )
[21:36] Shadowcaller: (But… Its a wild horse. They are hardly one colored. I think?(
[21:37] Happy: (since it's a wild stallion, we could name it Bill or Ted ;) )
[21:37] Wolfbane: (Hehehe)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: (Well? Its a brown/white horse.)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: (Mostly brown.)
[21:39] Happy: (Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Przewalski%27s_Horse)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Przewalski%27s_Horse
[21:39] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[21:40] Shadowcaller: (Funny how we looked up the same horse…)
[21:40] Happy: (I was going to call him Oro, if he was gold)
[21:41] Shadowcaller: (Hm, well he's just a wild stallion, so it have to be something else then I guess?(
[21:43] Happy: (well maybe he has golden eyes.)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: (Why would a horse have golden eyes?)
[21:44] Wolfbane: (They do sometimes
[21:44] Wolfbane: )
[21:44] Shadowcaller: (Lets say he have then…)
[21:45] Happy: Simone calls him Oro then.
[21:45] Happy: Although the idea was that we were going to leave them with the vilage >.>
[21:46] Wolfbane: (Bah! :P)
[21:46] Shadowcaller: (ANyway…)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (What is Promise doing? Aegnor and Simone have lead back the horse by now.)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (The village is starting to move again
[21:48] Wolfbane: (Promise is next to Hope and Goldie because Hope ws going to check Goldie's heart)
[21:48] Wolfbane: (Never finished that part)
[21:49] Happy: "I think it's time for you to have a rest, hon," Hope says, giving her a kiss on the muzzle and setting her down. "Go lay down in our tent."
[21:50] Happy: (Oh… village moving)
[21:50] Wolfbane: Goldie gives the two hugs and then does as told.
[21:50] Happy: "Go to the litter." (since the tent is being taken down)
[21:51] Wolfbane: "Okay Miss. Hope." She says with a smile.
[21:57] Shadowcaller: You can see Michicora hekping the villagers moving the tents and other stuff
[22:00] Wolfbane: Promise looks at Hope. "Is she okay?"
[22:00] Shadowcaller: * helping
[22:01] Happy: "I need to watch her for a few days, to see how she takes to Helena's healing."
[22:02] Wolfbane: Promise takes her hand and squeezes it gently. "It should go well."
[22:04] Happy: "I hope so."
[22:07] Wolfbane: "We should probably grab our things before we take off without them." He says with a smile.
[22:10] Happy: They pack up their tent and head off then.
[22:10] Wolfbane: *pokes SC*
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Hm?
[22:11] Wolfbane: Promise is going to wait till they are all together to talk.
[22:12] Shadowcaller: (Murska isn't here thought.)
[22:12] Shadowcaller: The village is getting very close to the mountains now.
[22:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie will first tell Aegnor about her gift and then move along with the rest of the village.
[22:14] Wolfbane: And hopefully give the rock back to Goldie
[22:14] Shadowcaller: Yes
[22:14] Shadowcaller: Thought I think I already mentioned that
[22:14] Happy: (you aren't going to retcon the gift out?)
[22:15] Shadowcaller: (Well… I dunno.)
[22:15] Happy: (you could always say that he looked, but couldn't do anything because she's too closely bonded to fire and not to earth)
[22:16] Wolfbane: (If you want, go ahead)
[22:16] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: (Let's do that later… feels like we reconned Hopes dog.)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: *like when
[22:20] Shadowcaller: (Darn dog…) As night falls you actaully camp in the shadow of the mountain. You can hardly see its incredible high peaks this close. You can't really see why they are called "black" mountains as the rocks aren't much blacker then anything else you have seen.
[22:22] Shadowcaller: There are clouds sorrounding these mountains, it gets really dark once the sun have set.
[22:22] Shadowcaller: Fires are lit and the village prepares for the night.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: You are actually in a quite wind protected area, between large rocks, but its still pretty cold, Even without the wind cutting into you skin.
[22:24] Shadowcaller: There is a stream you have been following these past few days nearby, leading further up into the mountains.
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie have set up her tent and Aegnor is elsewhere I guess. Michicora is still helping the villagers with the final preperations.
[22:26] Wolfbane: (brb, dinner)
[22:27] Happy: Hope works next to Michicora.
[22:27] Happy: Not really saying anything, just spending time with her.
[22:29] Shadowcaller: She isn't saying that much either. She's more comfortable silent after all. She glances at Hope from time to time however, but still dosen't say anything.
[22:33] Shadowcaller: Most of the villagers are quite tired as they travelled a bit further this time, just to reach the mountains at night fall
[22:36] Happy: We set up for the night then.
[22:36] Happy: Seren goes to see Cessie.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: yes
[22:36] Happy: (I guess the villagers have been told by now that we're leaving soon?)
[22:36] Shadowcaller: Its light inside her tent
[22:37] Shadowcaller: (Yes, but we have to do the reactions tomorrow…)
[22:38] Shadowcaller: If he goes really close, he can hear pages turning
[22:39] Happy: /Cessie?/
[22:39] Shadowcaller: /Seren?/
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /Is there anything I can do for you?/
[22:41] Happy: /Not if you're busy./
[22:42] Shadowcaller: /I'm not really. I'm just eating some dried meat… doing nothing./
[22:44] Shadowcaller: He can hear the pages stop turning
[22:46] Happy: /May I come in?/
[22:47] Shadowcaller: /Of course./
[22:47] Happy: He does so
[22:47] Wolfbane: (back)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: She is lying on the bedroll with a book at her side, looking up to him with a curious expression as he enters."Good evening Seren, Lessons again?"
[22:49] Happy: "I fear I'm not going to learn the spell before you go. But I have to keep trying, right?"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Of course, you can't give up now. Flight is extremly useful for both you and the village as a whole."
[22:51] Happy: "Even if I don't learn it before you go, I'll keep practicing."
[22:51] Shadowcaller: She titles her head a bit "Tell me… you aren't afraid of flying are you?"
[22:51] Happy: (gah! Zar Peter has a video for why I should be lynched in Memesville! D=)
[22:52] Happy: *D= )
[22:55] Wolfbane: (hehe)
[22:56] Happy: (did you see where he put his hand?! O.o )
[22:56] Wolfbane: (Yeah)
[22:57] Happy: Of course it started as my neck…
[23:01] Shadowcaller: *pokes*
[23:02] Wolfbane: Happy?
[23:03] Happy: (sorry, I didn't see your answer)
[23:03] Happy: "No, not really. I'll try and stay close to the ground until I'm sure I can control it."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "Your acting kind of odd thought, is there anything that matters?"
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "You have been very nervous during all our lessons…"
[23:05] Happy: "What - what do you mean?"
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "Well for example, your stammering, like your doing now."
[23:07] Happy: He colors a little, and looks away. "It's nothing. R-really."
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Please tell me, is it something about Dall?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "His parents?"
[23:11] Happy: "Oh no, nothing like that. Dal is fine. He's learning so fast. His parents… well, I don't think they'll ever like me, but they accept me."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Then what is it? Saranna also thought you acted a bit odd."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "It's nothing serious… right?"
[23:14] Happy: He smiles, a little ruefully. "I promise you, there's nothing for you to worry about."
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "Hmph, you know me I need to know everything. But if you /really/ don't want to answer then don't. I'm going to keep asking however." She smiles back
[23:17] Happy: "Yes, I know you." He holds her gaze for a moment, still smiling, before changing the subject. "So. Flying?"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Ah, yes… did you do those exercises with wind?" She turns back to her book, flipping a few pages until she seems to find the one she's looking for.
[23:19] Happy: (he's never going to confess to her, unless she actually guesses)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (You'll see.)
[23:20] Wolfbane: (Who knows, maybe when this is all over some elf maiden will take a liking to him. ;))
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (I think a outside, like Saranna (if even she would notice) would tell her. Aegnor suspects something thought >.>)
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (But its not over yet anyway…)
[23:22] Happy: (fast forward past lessons then?)
[23:23] Shadowcaller: (if you wish.)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie stands up and offers her hand "So, do you think your gasping it now?"
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "We should do some more practice work really…"
[23:27] Happy: "I'm getting there. You explain it so clearly. It's just me not working well with air."
[23:28] Happy: (You could have Cessie ask Saranna)
[23:30] Shadowcaller: She sigh "I'm going to ask someone why there are specilizations in magic later…" A paus as she goes to the other side of the tent "Oh right, I need to help Saranna too. Do you mind?" She looks at him, standing near the tent opening.
[23:31] Happy: "Of course not. I've used up enough of your time."
[23:31] Happy: He stands to go.
[23:32] Shadowcaller: She brushes away a few strands of her as she opens up the tent opening "Ugh, I'm going to need to have a haircut soon."
[23:32] Shadowcaller: *hair
[23:33] Happy: "It looks beautiful," he says.
[23:33] Happy: Then mentally curses himself.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "You think?" She looks at him oddly
[23:36] Happy: He turns to look outside, so his face is out of the light. "Of course if you want it shorter, it's your hair."
[23:39] Shadowcaller: She is still seems confused about his odd behavior "Okay, what is it?" She steps a bit closer. "Is it… me?"
[23:40] Wolfbane: (Run Seren! Fake a stroke! White lies are not a sin! Do anything! :P)
[23:42] Happy: "There's nothing for to worry about Cessie," he says firmly.
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Seren…" She replies softly "I know its something." A light starts in front of her "Your blushing."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: *starets to glow
[23:45] Shadowcaller: *starts
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "You have… feelings for me?" Cessie sounds a bit shocked as she says it
[23:48] Wolfbane: (Dude, should have just summoned an elemental and ran)
[23:49] Happy: (lol)
[23:49] Happy: Seren sighs.
[23:50] Happy: /I'm sorry./
[23:51] Shadowcaller: /I… no I'm sorry. I don't even know what to say./
[23:52] Happy: /I told you, it's nothing for you to worry about. I never meant for you to find out./
[23:52] Shadowcaller: /For how long…?/
[23:56] Happy: /I don't know. It probably started when I stopped feeling sorry for myself and really started to accept the new life I'mpart of now./
[23:57] Shadowcaller: /Ugh, I'm so blind… I'm so sorry Seren. I should have noticed it sooner./
[23:59] Shadowcaller: /It must have been so hard for you… why didn't you tell me?/
[00:00] Happy: /Because I know you're in love with Aegnor. And he's a better man than me. He deserves you./
[00:03] Shadowcaller: /Aegnor is a great person and I love him, but he's not better then you Seren. No one is./
[00:03] Happy: /Yes he is. He never sold children into slavery like I did./
[00:03] Wolfbane: (Exact wrong thing to say if you want him not to fall for you <.<)
[00:04] Happy: (he's already fallen for her. Not much she could do to make it worse. :P )
[00:05] Wolfbane: (Keep encouraging him even though she doesn't like him?)
[00:05] Wolfbane: (>.>)
[00:06] Shadowcaller: /You did a misstake, it was a part of your culture, You could not have known./
[00:06] Shadowcaller: (She likes him, but not in that way.)
[00:06] Happy: /It doesn't matter. You love Aegnor, and he makes you happy./
[00:09] Shadowcaller: /Yes, but I would like you to be happy too Seren and if you keep beating yourself like that…/
[00:10] Shadowcaller: /Your my friend and I don't like you to suffer like this./
[00:12] Wolfbane: brb
[00:12] Happy: "Okay," he smiles. "I'll try to stop, but only if you don't blame yourself for my feelings."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: She smiles back slightly, suddenly looking shy "To be honest… I feel a bit… well… I don't know." She looks away.
[00:15] Happy: (geez, get his hopes up… :P)
[00:16] Shadowcaller: (She don't mean it like that >.> But she isn't very good with signals.)
[00:16] Happy: "… what?"
[00:18] Wolfbane: back
[00:19] Shadowcaller: She looks at him again "I feel… well… attractive, I only thought it was Aegnor who looked at me like that."
[00:20] Happy: He smiles. "I'm surprised every man in the village isn't in love with you, Cessie."
[00:21] Shadowcaller: Her face turns bright red "Your almost as worse as Aegnor." She says with a weak voice.
[00:29] Shadowcaller: .
[00:30] Happy: He colors again. "I'm… going to go now. Goodnight, Cessie."
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "Good night Seren… you still remember the exercies right?"
[00:31] Shadowcaller: Her voice is still rather quiet
[00:31] Happy: "Yes."
[00:31] Happy: He goes.
[00:33] Shadowcaller: She breaths out and slips inside her tent again, still feeling confused but somewhat happy too
[00:33] Shadowcaller: (Well, that was intresting.)
[00:36] Shadowcaller: (What did you think?:P)
[00:37] Happy: (heh. you pulled that hair thing out just to trip him up, didn't you?)
[00:37] Shadowcaller: (Sort of
)
[00:38] Wolfbane: (He really should have just denied it and ran off, but I feel sorry for him
[00:38] Wolfbane: )
[00:39] Happy: (He wouldn't lie to Cessie.)
[00:39] Wolfbane: (There is that)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (Feel sorry for him?)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I suppose…:S)
[00:40] Happy: (He's come a long way since he was just 'the mage' on a scrap of paper I was tracking the slavers on)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (Must be really hard for him…)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (hehe, true.)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (and a few moths ago he was trying to kill her >.>)
[00:42] Happy: (And she was the only one arguing to save his life)
[00:43] Happy: (I really expected him to be executed. It was only her persistance that convinced the villagers to try something else.)
[00:43] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, well she is a firm beliver of a "second chance"=
