[21:03] MrEdwardNigma: I so want to see his reaction when his character finds out what happened
[21:03] Happy: yeah. no one has told him, right?
[21:03] Shadowcaller: um…
[21:03] Shadowcaller: <.<
[21:03] Shadowcaller: >.>
[21:03] Happy: *smacks SC with a trout*
[21:04] Shadowcaller: I was bored!
[21:04] MrEdwardNigma: … so you ruined our fun?
[21:04] Shadowcaller: Well, I have been sitting down here since my moms friends took over our house
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Well, atleast we get to see his characters reactions right?… right?
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: Gimme that trout, happy
[21:06] Happy: give trout
[21:07] MrEdwardNigma: *smacks sc*
[21:08] Shadowcaller: *is smacked*
[21:13] Happy: we could go ahead and get started if you like
[21:14] Shadowcaller: I'm okay with that as long as we don't go too far
[21:14] Happy: Cessie wakes up. Happy and Murska are still asleep.
[21:15] Shadowcaller: (right,still used to GM'ing:P)
[21:15] Shadowcaller: I look around the barracks
[21:15] Shadowcaller: As quietly as possible
[21:16] Happy: There are soldiers moving around, also quietly, as some of their comrades are asleep. One of them approaches. "Are you alright, ma'am? Can you answer some questions for us?"
[21:17] Shadowcaller: I look over at my friends before answering him
[21:17] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma wakes up
[21:17] Shadowcaller: they are still asleep right?
[21:18] Happy: Happy and Murska are still asleep.
[21:18] Happy: Nigma is at the inn.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "I guess, we had a pretty rough time as you can see"
[21:18] Shadowcaller: I say to the guard
[21:20] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma packs up and heads down
[21:21] MrEdwardNigma: he'll then go off to see the wizard
[21:21] MrEdwardNigma: (8)the wizard, the wizard of Oz(8)
[21:22] Happy: SC: He leads you out of the barracks, to a mess area where a cook is portioning out porridge and cheese. "Bandits have been growing even more daring. Anything you can tell me about the attack might help us find them."
[21:23] Happy: Nigma follows the directions he was given. It's a rather plain looking cottage with apple trees growing out front. There's a white raven sitting on the peak of the roof staring down at you.
[21:24] Shadowcaller: "Bandits? Yes we have encountered some of them yes, I doubt I can tell you anything intresting thought."
[21:24] MrEdwardNigma: A cottage? No impressive looking tower? Nigma shrugs and knocks on the door
[21:26] Happy: SC: "Anything you can tell me about the attack on you and your friends?"
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "Well… I know for a fact that there is less of them now." [/cryptic]
[21:28] Happy: Nigma: The door opens. Standing at the door is a clockwork girl. "Hello. Sir. How. May. I. Help. You."
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "There was a fire… I think quite many of them died in it"
[21:29] Happy: SC: "And that's how you escaped? After they disfigured your friend and injured the other one?"
[21:30] MrEdwardNigma: "I need to see the wizard"
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "Yes, exactly." (:P)
[21:32] Happy: Nigma: "Why. Do. You. Need. To. See. Daddy." ((Clockwork girl has no inflection to her voice.))
[21:33] Happy: SC: "If you could tell us where this occurred, we can send a party after them."
[21:34] MrEdwardNigma: "I have some questions to ask. I'd like to discuss it with him personally"
[21:35] Happy: "Daddy. Is. Busy. Will. You. Play. With. Me."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "Well last time we saw them were in their camp, that is destroyed now. We don't really know if there are any of them left."
[21:35] * moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (fianlly)
[21:35] Shadowcaller: *finaly
[21:36] Murska: hai peoples
[21:36] Happy: SC: The guard unrolls a map. "Can you show me where their camp is?"
[21:36] MrEdwardNigma: Mimic your reaction from when sc spilled the beans too early, murska
[21:36] Murska: ((Problem: I have like 24 minutes of time…))
[21:36] Happy: awww
[21:36] MrEdwardNigma: that's long enough to mimic
[21:36] Murska: ((but hey, I'll add another hour on top of that and be late from the SC session))
[21:36] Murska: so eh
[21:36] Murska: I… wake up?
[21:36] Murska: look
[21:36] Happy: You're in a barracks
[21:37] Happy: Happy is asleep in another bed.
[21:37] Murska: ((I've been unconscious until now?))
[21:37] Happy: There are some soldiers moving around quietly, and others sleeping.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: (you have)
[21:37] Murska: 'Eh… huh?'
[21:38] Happy: Happy's forehead is covered with dried blood.
[21:38] Shadowcaller: *Cessie points out the location of the destoryed camp*
[21:38] Shadowcaller: *destroyed
[21:38] Murska: examine self
[21:38] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't have time to play"
[21:38] MrEdwardNigma: "It's urgent. Where is 'daddy'"?
[21:40] Happy: Murska: You have all your belongings, and appear to be uninjured.
[21:40] Murska: get up
[21:41] Murska: examine Happy
[21:41] Happy: "Daddy. Is. Busy. You. Are. Busy. No. One. Wants. To. Play. With. Me."
[21:41] MrEdwardNigma: "take me to daddy"
[21:42] Happy: Happy's forehead has the word 'HAG' carved into it, and she has a couple of lumps on her head.
[21:43] Murska: 'Ouch… What the hell has happened?'
[21:43] Happy: Nigma: "You. Are. Mean. I. Do. Not. Like. You." The clockwork girl crosses her arms and turns her back on you
[21:43] Happy: Happy is still asleep.
[21:43] Shadowcaller: *Cessie points out the location of the destoryed camp*
[21:43] Shadowcaller: *destroyed
[21:43] Happy: Clockwork girl walks inside the house
[21:43] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma checks for an off switch
[21:44] Happy: ((Nigma: checking how?))
[21:44] MrEdwardNigma: Looking?
[21:44] Murska: Hmm… examine surroundings
[21:45] Happy: Guard: "Okay, we knew about that one. I'm surprised you make it this far after the attack, especially in the storm."
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "We got lost… we are quite new here."
[21:46] Happy: Murska: You're in a barracks with soldiers around, some sleeping, some preparing to sleep, all moving quietly. Happy starts to stir, mumbling incoherently.
[21:46] Murska: attempt to wake Happy
[21:47] Happy: Nigma: You don't see an off switch. The clockwork girl is wearing clothing. She is walking further into the house.
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma follows
[21:47] Happy: Happy sits up, stretching. "G'morning."
[21:48] Murska: 'Er… what happened while I was out?'
[21:48] Happy: Little girl walks upstairs and opens a door. "Daddy. No. One. Wants. To. Play. With. Me."
[21:49] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma blends into the shadows
[21:49] Happy: Happy's face falls as she suddenly remembers the events of last night. "Oh. Yeah. Nigma tried to kill the doctor and his wife."
[21:50] MrEdwardNigma: Heh, what a liar
[21:50] Murska: 'What?!'
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (quiet you:P)
[21:51] Happy: Guard: "Do you want to tell me what happened exactly?" His voice softens. "I can get my wife here, if it would be easier for you to talk to a woman about it."
[21:52] Happy: Nigma hears a voice. "I'll play with you later, poppet." Then his voice is raised. "Come in, fellow, I know you're there."
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma comes in
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: and makes a slight bow
[21:53] Shadowcaller: *Cessie looks a bit uncomfortable* "Ehm, that won't be needed officer."
[21:53] Happy: Happy: "I whacked Nigma over the head, tied him up, and disarmed him. But he got loose and tried to burn their house down with them upstairs." She looks down. "I screwed up everything."
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "We were just attacked and managed to escape with out lives, we were lucky."
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "They could have cost us much more."
[21:54] Murska: '…'
[21:54] Murska: 'So, uh… where are we now?'
[21:57] Happy: The wizard is a shrunken man with thick glasses. "And what business do you have that you believe is more important than my own?" The little girl sits down in a corner, with her arms crossed. If her face could show expression, you'd swear she was sulking
[21:57] Happy: Happy: "We're in another village. We went through the storm. I was afraid to stay where we were."
[21:58] MrEdwardNigma: "I will try not to take up too much of your time, sir. It is just that I am afraid I direly need your help. I can pay, if need be"
[21:58] MrEdwardNigma: "My name is Edward Nigma, what's yours?"
[21:58] Shadowcaller: (*gasps* his full name!)
[21:59] Murska: 'Right…'
[21:59] Happy: Guard sighs. "Very well." It's clear he doesn't believe you. "Please, help yourself to breakfast."
[21:59] Murska: '…sorry for being a burder… I could've helped stop Nigma.'
[22:00] Murska: (burden*
[22:00] Shadowcaller: (stupid bluff modifier…)
[22:00] Happy: Wizard: "You may call me Mr Baxter."
[22:01] Happy: Happy: "Well, he's gone now. I don't suppose we'll ever see him again."
[22:01] MrEdwardNigma: "Thank you, sir. I was wondering if you could cure my amnesia"
[22:02] Shadowcaller: "Wait, if yyou really need the detials I can tell you, it just brings up bad memories, *she lowers her voice* I was.. damaged by those thugs you see."
[22:02] Happy: Guard nods sympathetically. "You aren't the first."
[22:03] Murska: 'So, eh. I'm okay now but really hungry… feels like I haven't eaten in days. Anything to eat around here?'
[22:03] Shadowcaller: (corrections: you, details)
[22:04] Shadowcaller: (I hate when I mispell words…)
[22:04] Happy: Happy: "Probably. They were pretty nice to us yesterday." She stands up, but grabs the wall, a little dizzy.
[22:05] Happy: Wizard: "Amnesia. Interesting problem. Very interesting. Sit right here." He indicates a chair.
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "Anyone from this town have been attacked?"
[22:06] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma sits
[22:09] Happy: Guard: "Yes. Quite a few. Five years ago, the guard on this town was only a few men. You see, we've had to increase our defences considerably."
[22:09] Murska: ask a guard nearby for food
[22:09] Happy: Wizard stands up, about eye level with the seated rogue. He leans forward, peering into Nigma's eyes.
[22:10] Happy: The guard leads Murska and Happy into the mess room, where they see Cessie talking with another guard. Porridge and cheese is being served.
[22:10] Murska: feast
[22:11] Murska: eat a lot
[22:11] Murska: 'Oh hi Cessie'
[22:11] Murska: nomnomnom
[22:11] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma is slightly uncomfortable. he remembered a drunken man in an inn telling him that there were people out there who could see into your soul through your eyes. he didn't like the idea of anyone seeing quite what he had to hide. Fear, loneliness, insecurity, distrust
[22:11] Happy: Happy eats
[22:11] Happy: Wizard stares for several minutes, unless Nigma pulls away.
[22:12] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma stays put
[22:12] Shadowcaller: Cessie turns to her friends "…are you two okay?"
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "After all that happend last night.."
[22:13] Murska: 'Well, I'm a bit hazy on the details of what actually happened… I hear Nigma decided to go mad and on a murderous rampage…'
[22:13] Murska: (while nomming)
[22:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie nods excusingly to the guard she have been talking to and sits down with her friends. "Well… I can't really belive any of that actually happend."
[22:14] Happy: Mr Baxter eventually pulls back. "A curse. A pretty powerful one too." He shakes his head. "Bad bad stuff."
[22:15] Happy: Happy: "It's my fault. I shouldn't have hit a clan member."
[22:15] Murska: 'Well, let me first tell you what I remember…'
[22:15] Murska: 'I was attacked by some dwarves. for some reason. Then blank.'
[22:16] Murska: 'Then I woke up under Happy for some reason…'
[22:16] Murska: 'Was pretty nice but anyway.'
[22:16] Murska: 'Then a lot of pain and some hazy events… We broke into a house?'
[22:16] Murska: 'and now I'm here'
[22:17] MrEdwardNigma: "Can you fix it?"
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "Happy hit Nigma and then Nigma hit back, hard"
[22:18] Murska: 'Whoa. Didn't expect him to be able to do that.'
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "It was Nigmas fault in the first place anyway."
[22:18] Happy: Baxter: "First I need to see the two artifacts you are carrying."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "If we had leaved that house alone none of this would have happend."
[22:19] Happy: Happy: "I saw what he did to the doctor's wife. He could have killed her."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "He went out of line, we should had keept in under check better."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: *him
[22:20] MrEdwardNigma: "Why?"
[22:20] Murska: '…wife? Doctor?'
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "You don't remeber them either?"
[22:20] Shadowcaller: *remember
[22:20] Murska: 'Er… There was a house…'
[22:20] Murska: 'and stairs… wobbling'
[22:21] Happy: Baxter (impatiently): "Because they're related to the curse, of course."
[22:21] Happy: Happy is eating quietly, and not saying anything. Mostly to give the GM one thing less to thing about at the moment :P
[22:21] Shadowcaller: (remember, to end a curse cuased by a item you need to destroy the item, like the druid said)
[22:22] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma reluctantly shows the items
[22:22] Murska: gets more food
[22:22] Murska: 'So um. Can anyone fill in any of the blanks in my memory?'
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "You got an apetite at least, I don't feel for anything right now."
[22:23] Murska: '…I've had some before… usually wake up in the middle of corpses. Scares me.'
[22:23] MrEdwardNigma: (the bukkit was picked up AFTER the curse… Plus, the temple caused the curses, not the items)
[22:23] Murska: (Nigma has the bukkit? O_o)
[22:23] Murska: (oh noes)
[22:23] Happy: ((trust me you guys… :P))
[22:23] Shadowcaller: "You what?" *shs look a bit shocked*
[22:23] Shadowcaller: *she
[22:24] Murska: 'Yeah… remember the guards… and the bandits…'
[22:24] Murska: 'and a couple times earlier, too.'
[22:24] Shadowcaller: (yeah I know just remmeber happy of the things I invented)
[22:24] Murska: 'But it's usually been beneficial to me, before.'
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "Beneficial?"
[22:25] Murska: 'Well… I don't know what it is but the first time it happened… Well, let's just say that it's the best thing that's ever happened to me before meeting you guys.'
[22:26] Murska: 'Anyway, it always leaves me hungry.'
[22:26] Murska: nomnom
[22:26] MrEdwardNigma: "I need the stick though, Mister Baxter"
[22:26] MrEdwardNigma: "There's a prophecy that says I need it, for my destiny"
[22:26] Happy: Baxter shakes his head. "The rod of silence and the bucket of devouring. No wonder death follows you everywhere."
[22:26] Shadowcaller: She raises a eyebrown "Sounds a bit wierd, you seems to remember a lot, any idea what could cuase that?"
[22:27] MrEdwardNigma: "What does the bukkit do?"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "I mean, if I would have sudden memory lapses I would worry."
[22:27] Murska: 'For me, they're more like a blessing…'
[22:28] Murska: '…anyway, I usually seem to have blanks after I get into trouble.'
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Like after the dwarves attacked you?"
[22:29] Murska: 'Apparently…'
[22:29] Murska: 'So, would you answer my question?'
[22:30] Happy: Baxter picks up a piece of coal from the bin near the fire. He drops it into the bucket, then holds the bucket and shrinks it. It shrinks so small that it nearly vanishes before he enlarges it again. When he does, the piece of coal is gone.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "Well you should ask happy about details, I wasen't in the house to start with if you remember that."
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: "Well I'll be…"
[22:31] Murska: 'Let's just start from what I remember…'
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "When I came into the house you had already passed out."
[22:31] Murska: 'What happened after I was attacked?
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: "So can you fix the curse? Cure me?"
[22:31] Murska: 'You understand I'm interested about this phenomenon affecting me…'
[22:31] Happy: Happy: "Cessie went to find Nigma. Then he wanted to break into the doctor's house."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "You got dragged off by the dwarves."
[22:32] Murska: attempts to follow the pretty contradictory storytelling by the two
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (ignore that)
[22:32] Murska: :P
[22:32] Happy: Baxter: "I can, but it's not going to be pleasant for you."
[22:32] Murska: 'You don't really know how to tell a story, right? Start from the beginning, end when it ends?'
[22:32] MrEdwardNigma: "How so?"
[22:33] Shadowcaller: (I said that you should ignore that line:P)
[22:33] Murska: (Well that one at least started from the beginning. :P)
[22:34] Happy: Baxter: "Your memories have been sealed off by something powerful. Breaking through that seal is going to hurt. A lot. And then you're going to have memories in your head that you may not like."
[22:34] Happy: Happy: "Sorry. I thought you wanted to know what happened in the house."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: (okay lets start this over then…)
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "Well… the dwarves carried you off."
[22:34] MrEdwardNigma: "Bring on the pain, doctor"
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "Happy and I came after you and then things gets a bit sketchy."
[22:35] Happy: Baxter: "It's not that simple. I need an hour to prepare. Go outside and play with my daughter, and I'll call you when I'm ready."
[22:35] Murska: 'Would you describe what happened to me?'
[22:35] MrEdwardNigma: Pain… Nigma didn't like this, but he didn't get to where he was by chickening out of stuff. Wait…
[22:35] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma nods. "Okay"
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "It was pretty dark outside, happy shouted at the dwarves, there was going to be a fight as usual."
[22:36] Happy: Clockwork girl jumps up. "Yay. Let. Us. Play. House."
[22:36] Happy: She takes Nigma by the hand and drags him outside.
[22:36] MrEdwardNigma: "Sure. i'd love to" Nigma says
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "Then you broke free or something I think"
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "And we ran after you."
[22:37] Murska: 'Whoa. I must be stronger than I thought…'
[22:37] Murska: 'Uh, so I ran away?'
[22:37] Murska: 'Fits… I guess…'
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, happy was faster then you thankfully, if you don't remember any of this…"
[22:38] Happy: Clockwork girl has a tea set and dollies in a little playhouse in the back yard. "You. Be. The. Daddy. And. I. Will. Be. The. Mommy."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Its like doing things in your sleep."
[22:38] Murska: 'So then comes the part where I wake up from under Happy?'
[22:38] Murska: *smile*
[22:39] Happy: Happy: "Yeah, I tackled you." *grins*
[22:39] Shadowcaller: *sigh* Yeah, I bet you remember *that* part quite well."
[22:39] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma plays along
[22:39] Murska: 'Of course I do.'
[22:39] Murska: 'Not that often you wake up from under a beautiful woman.'
[22:39] Murska: 'At least we had clothes.'
[22:40] Murska: 'Anyway. Then… I guess I should've started fainting right about then?'
[22:40] Happy: Happy rolls her eyes. "You were pretty shaken. So I sat with you while and Cessie went to find Nigma."
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "..are you sure there aren't any half-elves out there?"
[22:40] Murska: 'I wouldn't know.'
[22:40] Murska: 'Not left by me, at least.'
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "The dwarves didin't follow us, I think they don't wanted to makt too much noise."
[22:41] Murska: 'I wonder why they attacked me anyway.'
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "Your sure you don't have any children?"
[22:41] Murska: 'So, uh. I woke up, I remember some of the events of that period… mostly the horrible pain…'
[22:42] Murska: 'Hey, I have mind blanks, right?'
[22:42] Murska: 'I wouldn't know.' *grin*
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Well you seems to have them at the right places atleast."
[22:43] Happy: Clockwork girl is very bossy and has Nigma feeding baby dolls and changing pretend diapers and drinking pretend tea before she suddenly sits up. "Daddy. Is. Ready. For. You."
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "Anyway… I found Nigma in the libarary."
[22:43] Shadowcaller: /*townhall
[22:44] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma plays along with it, and is pretty relieved when he finally gets to stop playing
[22:44] Shadowcaller: And to make a long story short, *he* decided to rob a house for us."
[22:44] Murska: 'While I was half-passed out and Happy was taking care of me.' *grin*
[22:44] Murska: *suddenly serious*
[22:44] Murska: 'Well, thank you.' (at Happy)
[22:45] Murska: 'So, why did he want to rob a house anyway?'
[22:45] Happy: Little girl leads Nigma back upstairs, where Baxter directs him to sit back in the same chair.
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "Well, I never got to hear his reasons but you did seem to go along with it however."
[22:45] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma goes along with it
[22:45] Happy: Happy: "He wanted to force the doctor to cure his amnesia. And take his money."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "I *knew* that it would end badly…"
[22:46] Murska: 'Well, I just remember following Happy around and being in pain.'
[22:46] Shadowcaller: *Cessie looks pretyt upset*
[22:46] Shadowcaller: *pretty
[22:46] Murska: 'Why not first ask the doctor to cure the amnesia… It's Nigma so he could steal the money but what's with the murderous rampage part?'
[22:47] Happy: Baxter is wearing steampunk-esque goggles.
[22:47] Happy: He uses some weird equipment to clamp Nigma's head in place so he can't move it.
[22:47] MrEdwardNigma: "ugh"
[22:48] Happy: Happy: "When he first broke in, he knocked out the doctor's wife, tied her to the bed, and gagged her."
[22:48] Murska: 'Eww. Pervert!'
[22:48] Happy: "When I saw that… I went a little nuts. That's when I attacked him. You don't hurt helpless women and children. It's bad for the tribe."
[22:48] Murska: /I'd prefer conscious women myself anyway…/(you don't hear this)
[22:49] Shadowcaller: (I bet we don't:P)
[22:49] Murska: 'Uhh. Understandable, I guess.'
[22:49] Shadowcaller: *cessie remains quiet*
[22:49] Murska: 'So wait. We broke into the doctor's house, I was fainting and in horrible pain and you two have also lost your memories and Nigma just got the doctor to cure HIS amnesia?'
[22:50] MrEdwardNigma: :P
[22:50] Happy: Baxter takes one hand and holds one of Nigma's eyelids up, while the other hand brings a needle towards the eyeball.
[22:50] MrEdwardNigma: he's got you there
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "I didin't even know what he was doing"
[22:51] Happy: Happy: "I… didn't want to be cured. And you didn't faint until after we got there."
[22:51] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma's hand twitches
[22:52] Happy: Baxter pulls the needle back. "Oh. right. Poppy, can you come help Daddy?"
[22:52] Murska: 'You didn't want to be cured?'
[22:52] Murska: '…and I didn't faint?'
[22:52] Murska: 'Both seem illogical based on what I know thus far.'
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "Nigma seems to love leaving us in the dark.."
[22:53] Happy: Clockwork girl comes over and stands behind the chair, pinning both of Nigma's hands in place. She's incredibly strong. The needle comes towards the eyeball again.
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "If I had known that maybe thing would be different? Who knows?"
[22:53] MrEdwardNigma: "Jeezes!"
[22:53] Happy: Happy: "Nigma told you to go upstairs and check on the doctor's wife. You fainted after you got there."
[22:53] MrEdwardNigma: ((he did tell you, you know :P))
[22:53] Murska: '…first time I've ever stayed awake after a blank, for long.'
[22:54] Shadowcaller: ((He did?))
[22:54] Happy: ((He didn't tell Cessie.))
[22:54] Murska: 'Must be because I had such wonderful company.'
[22:54] MrEdwardNigma: ((before going to the doctor's house , he said the doctor would pay for the tickets, and cure their amnesia))
[22:54] MrEdwardNigma: ((he told cessie specifically. not sure if he told anyone else))
[22:55] Happy: The needle goes into Nigma's eyeball, and he pushes the plunger. It feels like liquid pain being injected.
[22:55] MrEdwardNigma: ((before the house, i eman, he told happy and murska once they were inside))
[22:55] Shadowcaller: ((well she didin't want to break inside the house))
[22:55] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh god!"
[22:55] Shadowcaller: ((anyway, lets say I knew then.))
[22:55] Murska: ((Hahahahaha… 'Berserker - Chaotic Insane'
[22:56] Happy: Baxter pulls the needle out. Then he refills the syringe and goes to do the same with the other eyeball.
[22:56] Murska: ((I wonder what a lawful insane person is like anyway.'
[22:56] Shadowcaller: ((god I am?))
[22:56] Murska: 'So… I fainted…'
[22:56] Murska: 'and then Happy and Nigma got into a fight'
[22:56] Murska: 'and Nigma did /that/ to her' *shudders*
[22:56] Murska: 'and burned the house down
[22:56] Happy: Happy: "You fainted. I ran upstairs to check on you. And that's when I saw what he'd done to the doctor's wife."
[22:56] Murska: 'right?'
[22:56] Shadowcaller: "yeah, after happy let me in she ambushed Nigma in the staircase"
[22:56] MrEdwardNigma: "dear lord and puppies!"
[22:57] Murska: 'wait, what exactly happened'
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "I had no idea at that time…"
[22:57] Happy: Happy: "I knocked him out, tied him up, and disarmed him."
[22:57] Murska: 'Oookay.'
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "I just asumed that Nigma had done something really bad."
[22:58] Murska: 'and all the while, we were in a doctor's house and I was lying… somewhere… fainted?'
[22:58] Happy: Happy: "Yeah, he did. That woman could have died! Most people can't take a blow to the head."
[22:58] MrEdwardNigma: ((you're actually telling the straight story of stupid berserking? but why? You should lie to him!))
[22:58] MrEdwardNigma: ((Murska won't mind that he hit a woman… tell him he raped her or something))
[22:58] Happy: Baxter tut tuts, and begins peeeeering into Nigma's eyes again.
[22:58] Happy: ((Happy's too simple to lie. :P))
[22:58] Murska: ((Hey! :P))
[22:59] MrEdwardNigma: ((heh, most people can't take a blow to the head, now that's a good lie))
[22:59] Happy: ((Happy's used to hitting people a lot harder than Nigma can))
[22:59] Shadowcaller: ((Crushing skulls eh?))
[22:59] Murska: ((well, someone continue the discussion))
[23:00] Shadowcaller: ((happy did))
[23:00] Happy: Nigma starts to see a frightening demon creature in his memory.
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "So I helped happy.."
[23:01] Happy: Hissing: "…. what you value most will turn to dust…"
[23:01] MrEdwardNigma: "Worm? Is that you?"
[23:01] Murska: 'So, the doctor didn't have time to take a look at me?'
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (don't insult the worm:P)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "We… had to lock them up."
[23:02] Happy: Happy: "Yeah, soon after that, Nigma was burning his house down around him."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "He went pretty crazy after happy ambushed him."
[23:03] Happy: Demon: "… And when you've finally destroyed everything you care for, then you'll return to me, on your belly, and beg to be devoured…"
[23:03] MrEdwardNigma: "You're going to take my money? No! Screw you!"
[23:03] Happy: Happy: "I only wanted to get him away from the town, keep him from hurting anyone else."
[23:03] MrEdwardNigma: "Screw you, worm!"
[23:04] Murska: 'Ah. It's a pity, It's an unique opportunity for someone to be able to study my… condition.'
[23:04] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma drags at his restraints
[23:04] Murska: 'So Happy tied him up but he escaped and somehow overpowered you two while burning the house down?'
[23:04] Happy: In Nigma's memory, he grabs for his gold, and it vanishes in his hands.
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "happy released him."
[23:05] MrEdwardNigma: "Noooooo!!!!"
[23:05] Happy: Happy: "We got you outside first. Then I returned to save the doctor. Nigma set a trap or something."
[23:05] MrEdwardNigma: "Its mine! Mine!"
[23:05] Happy: "Later I woke up outside in the storm."
[23:05] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma hisses, drool running from his lips
[23:06] Murska: 'Hm. How did we end up here then?'
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "Well when i entered the house I got a crossbow pointed in my face."
[23:06] Happy: Nigma's memory: He can hear Happy weeping. "No.. please… forgive me…"
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "happy went inside and… didin't come out"
[23:06] MrEdwardNigma: "This… This happened already?" Nigma says, calming down
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "Then the fire started"
[23:07] Happy: Mr Baxter: "These are your memories of the curse."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "So I entered, and as I said, got a crossbow in my face."
[23:07] Happy: Nigma can't see Baxter. What he sees is the cave around him.
[23:07] MrEdwardNigma: Does it look familiar?
[23:08] Happy: It's the cave where everyone woke up
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Nigma seems to have overpowered happy or something."
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "He gave me an ultimatum."
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "So I had to leave, but I entered shortly after the doctor come out with his wife."
[23:09] Happy: Nigma's memory: Happy is saying 'Not the tribe… I'll do anything…" Demon: "Yes, I know you will…"
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "Nigma released them… I hope"
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "So I entered the house again, looking for happy."
[23:10] Happy: Nigma's memory: Cessie is standing stunned, with a blank look on her face. "It's gone. It's all gone…" she whispers.
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "And I found her, like this." *she points at happys forehead*
[23:11] MrEdwardNigma: "Screw you and your stupid tribe" Nigma mumbles
[23:11] MrEdwardNigma: "hags"
[23:12] Happy: Happy puts her hand on her forehead. "Eh, it just looks bad because scalp wounds bleed a lot. The blows to the back of the head did more damage. I guess I hit my face on a step or something."
[23:13] Murska: 'So… you don't mind about the… word carved into your forehead?'
[23:13] Happy: Nigma's memory: The demon slowly turns ethereal and disappears, leaving the party where they started at the beginning of the adventure
[23:13] Happy: Happy: "What word?"
[23:13] Murska: '…'*looks at Cessie*
[23:14] MrEdwardNigma: "Is that what happened?"
[23:14] Shadowcaller: *looks away*
[23:14] Murska: 'Uhh…'
[23:14] Murska: 'It appears that someone has carved the word 'HAG' into your forehead…'
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "…its not really that visible."
[23:15] Happy: Baxter's voice: "Pretty standard curse. Take from you what you value most." More memories start to pour into Nigma's head, the later ones first, followed by the earlier ones.
[23:16] Happy: Happy: "… He… what..?"
[23:16] MrEdwardNigma: A thought surfaced in Nigma's mind. "What DO I value most?"
[23:17] Murska: *recoils*
[23:17] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh. Hi Cornelius"
[23:17] Murska: *moves backwards*
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "I.."
[23:17] Murska: 'Eh… I thought you knew…'
[23:17] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma groans as some more unpleasant memories flash by
[23:17] MrEdwardNigma: "Mine!" he shouts again
[23:17] Shadowcaller: *looks down into the table*
[23:17] MrEdwardNigma: He's sweating
[23:18] Happy: Baxter's voice: "Gold, of course. At least that's what you thought when you met the demon. He'd have taken that straight from your mind."
[23:18] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, god, i never wanted to see that again…"
[23:18] MrEdwardNigma: "Gold? Gold doesn't matter. It's the stuff it can buy. Freedom, security"
[23:18] Shadowcaller: (wow, we must really ha angered all evil dieties in ths world:P)
[23:18] Shadowcaller: *this
[23:18] MrEdwardNigma: "No, no, wait, I know what's next… I don't want to go there again!"
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "Stop it!"
[23:19] Happy: Happy: "No… I didn't know… there was no time."
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "No, i have to know"
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "I…"
[23:19] Happy: Baxter's voice: "It can't be stopped. I told you it was one way."
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "So dark… So alone"
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "They took it all from me. Gave nothing back"
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: "All those years"
[23:19] Murska: ((I really should go play Starcraft soon…)
[23:19] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma seemed to untense
[23:20] MrEdwardNigma: "It's over. just more misery now"
[23:20] MrEdwardNigma: "Youth, you know"
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (not yet!)
[23:20] MrEdwardNigma: "Did you know I never once had a friend before the age of thirteen?"
[23:21] MrEdwardNigma: "There was no-one"
[23:21] Happy: Happy picks up a spoon and tries to see her reflection in it.
[23:21] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, them" Nigma says in surprise, and then another jolt of emotional pain shoots through his body
[23:21] MrEdwardNigma: He calms down
[23:22] MrEdwardNigma: "I think it's over. I'm watching a closed dark space. Warmth. Caring. And then, nothing"
[23:22] Happy: Clockwork girl's hands release you, and the head clamps are released as well.
[23:23] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma stays in his seat for a while
[23:23] Murska: Could Aegnor be on autopilot for a while. I could go play a game or two and then come back?
[23:23] Happy: Baxter's voice: "Poppy, take Mr Nigma to the guest room." Clockwork girl takes Nigma by the hand. He still can't see his surroundings.
[23:23] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[23:23] Happy: (bye)
[23:23] Shadowcaller: (who should control him?)
[23:23] MrEdwardNigma: "It wasn't, quite, what I expected" he says, his eyes still closed, as if savouring that last bit
[23:24] Happy: Poppy leads Nigma to a bed
[23:24] Murska: (Shadowcaller has the time, I suppose. :P)
[23:24] Happy: "Lay. Down. Until. You. Recover." she says.
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (I can't roleplay your character…)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (is there any other reaction from happy?)
[23:25] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma rests
[23:26] MrEdwardNigma: but not long
[23:26] Happy: Happy buries her face in her hands.
[23:26] Shadowcaller: (Aegnor tries to comfort her I guess)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't move
[23:27] Shadowcaller: She looks quite bleak
[23:27] Happy: Why don't we all take a break here? This is hard work :P
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (ahh, now you know how I feel)
[23:28] Happy: i guess it was the same way for all of you
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (well we don't describe things that well thought)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (it adds flavor)
[23:29] Happy: Heh… not much description. There was only two locations and three NPCs
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (well my description would have been *its a house*
[23:30] MrEdwardNigma: or a cottage
[23:30] Shadowcaller: Yeah

[23:31] Happy: that's what i said. i just added apple trees and a white raven :P
[23:31] Happy: So the curse… it took what each person valued most but it took it from all three
[23:31] Shadowcaller: (whats that demon?)
[23:32] Happy: Cessie's knowledge, Nigma's gold, and Happy's sense of belonging
[23:32] Shadowcaller: (damn curses)
[23:33] Happy: the demon is unspecified
[23:33] MrEdwardNigma: smart
[23:33] MrEdwardNigma: good explanation
[23:33] MrEdwardNigma: what does the sense of belonging mean though?
[23:34] Happy: she's been excommunicated from her tribe.
[23:34] Happy: it's why she's afraid to remember, because she knows it somewhere subconsciously
[23:35] MrEdwardNigma: I mean, how have we lost it?
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "Hm, this means I must make up all my lost knowledge thought)
[23:36] MrEdwardNigma: I doubt Nigma ever felt like he belonged, really
[23:36] Happy: yeah, well if you didn't have it, you didn't lose it
[23:36] Happy: like Happy didn't lose much knowledge because she's an uneducated barbarain :P
[23:37] Shadowcaller: (i*m a wizard, of course I have knowledge
[23:37] Shadowcaller: Hmm I could just use all the things I made up for this game was knowledge I guess
[23:38] MrEdwardNigma: I guess this means Nigma gained some skill by regaining his memory too
[23:38] MrEdwardNigma: tricks he forgot
[23:38] Happy: yeah
[23:38] Shadowcaller: Of course…:P
[23:38] MrEdwardNigma: Good, what do I do when i've written up a background?
[23:39] Shadowcaller: We wait for Murska
[23:39] Shadowcaller: I can enter his game and check for him I suppose:P
[23:40] MrEdwardNigma: :P
[23:41] Murska: back
[23:41] Shadowcaller: that was fast
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Happy, start up the game again
[23:42] Happy: gah!
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (you were comforting happy murska)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[23:42] Murska: (okay)
[23:42] Murska: comforts Happy
[23:42] Happy: Happy has her face buried in her hands
[23:42] Murska: as long as it seems that she isn't gonna be violent
[23:43] Murska: 'That can be healed.'
[23:43] Murska: 'There are wizards…'
[23:43] Shadowcaller: (happy do have a healing ability… not sure it helps here thought)
[23:43] Happy: "Yeah…."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "maybe we should look around in town? I wonder why its so close to the stone forest anyway…" *she seems to want to get away*
[23:44] Murska: 'Wait. Nobody explained me how we ended up here?'
[23:45] Happy: "We walked through the storm. I carried you."
[23:45] Murska: 'Oh… I wish I'd have been awake.'
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "It was a quite long walk…"
[23:45] Murska: 'So, what is this place anyway?
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Some town, we didn't ask for its name
[23:46] Happy: "Pfft… if you'd been awake, you'd have been walking, smart guy."
[23:46] Murska: 'Why're we in some barracks with all these guards around?'
[23:46] Shadowcaller: (Westronham it isname
[23:46] Murska: 'And hey, if I wake up to you carrying me, you really think I'd say anything?' *wink*
[23:47] Shadowcaller: I swear they get worse every time…
[23:47] Happy: "We got to the town gates, and the guards were kind to us."
[23:48] Murska: 'Okay then.'
[23:48] Murska: 'Well, let's go take a look around town? Who's with me!'
[23:48] Murska: *cheer*
[23:48] Happy: "We're not prisoners or anything…. " *dropping her voice* "Are we?"
[23:48] Shadowcaller: Well for a town at the border of a zombie infested forest, they seem quite friednly to strangers
[23:48] Shadowcaller: *friendly
[23:48] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma wakes
[23:49] Shadowcaller: (the world ends!"
[23:49] Murska: well we're not zombies. :P
[23:49] Happy: He's in a homey little room. Clockwork girl is sitting and watching him.
[23:49] Shadowcaller: They got problems with bandits too apperently
[23:49] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma gets up, gives her a nod, and returns to Baxter
[23:49] Murska: attempts to drag Cessie and Happy with him outside
[23:49] Shadowcaller: (cessie is already on her way out)
[23:49] Happy: "We also weren't much of a threat to them, with you unconscious and the two of us exhausted."
[23:50] Happy: Happy follows, but keeps her face down.
[23:50] Murska: 'You'd be suprised at how many bodies have turned up after I've been unconscious…'
[23:50] Happy: Low voice "You probably shouldn't say that too loudly."
[23:50] Shadowcaller: Don't talk about that… I can't belive how you can see that as a blessing
[23:51] Happy: Baxter is downstairs in his kitchen, making bread.
[23:51] Murska: 'I've pretty much gotten used to seeing everything possible as a blessing.'
[23:51] Murska: look around outside
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (we are outside the barrack I think)
[23:52] Shadowcaller: Even bandits and zombies?
[23:52] Happy: The weather outside is clear and sunny after the storm, with puddles everywhere. The townsfolk are moving about and shops are open.
[23:53] Murska: 'Well, they would've been, before, but after meeting you I guess I don't see things that would kill me as a blessing anymore.'
[23:53] MrEdwardNigma: "Hello Mister Baxter. I was wondering if you could charge my wand"
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "Ugh, I hate to barter" cessie says as she see the shops
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "You really are strange Aegnor…"
[23:53] Murska: 'Hmm. I guess I'll take that as a compliment.'
[23:53] Murska: *smile*
[23:54] Murska: *bow*
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "you do that…"
[23:54] Murska: 'I aspire to please my ladies.'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: *rolls eyes*
[23:54] Murska: 'Anyway. We need something from the shops? Something we can afford, that is?'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "We are broke."
[23:55] Murska: 'Aw, nuts… You really know how to ruin my good mood, eh?'
[23:55] Happy: Baxter: "No. I want nothing to do with it."
[23:55] Murska: *doesn't look like his mood is ruined*
[23:55] MrEdwardNigma: "Why?"
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "We should… do something I guess."
[23:55] Murska: *hums a cheerful tune while strolling around town looking for anything interesting*
[23:55] Happy: Baxter: "Maybe because of the demon? Inside your head? Stalking you because you had that thing?"
[23:56] Shadowcaller: *Is slowlt following murska, keeping her gaze down*
[23:56] Shadowcaller: *slowly
[23:56] Murska: 'Come on people… cheer up a little.'
[23:56] Murska: *points out interesting souvenirs to Cessie*
[23:56] MrEdwardNigma: "How do you know he was after this?"
[23:57] Happy: Happy is rummaging through her sack, before pulling out a strip of cloth to tie around her head.
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Whats the point? We can't buy any of it?"
[23:57] Murska: 'ooh, a bandana. Now we got a scary ranger girl!'
[23:57] Murska: 'We can always have fun thinking about what we'd do if we had money.'
[23:57] Happy: Baxter: "Occam's Razor. Either I believe that you're carrying a powerful artifact and just happened to run across a demon that cursed you by coincidence, or I believe the two events are linked."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Can't we think about how to make money instead?"
[23:58] Happy: In the town, you can hear music coming from a grassy area in the center of town
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Oh right… we can't carry any!"
[23:58] Shadowcaller: *sarcasm*
[23:59] Murska: 'Hm. Well, that certainly hurts our chances of buying stuff…'
[23:59] Murska: *follow music*
[23:59] Murska: 'Hey, listen to that?'
[23:59] Murska: 'Someone's pretty good…'
[23:59] Murska: *keep a lookout for a guitar
[23:59] Murska: to buy*
[00:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around the town but she dosen't actually seem any intrested in anything she sees
[00:01] MrEdwardNigma: "It was different. We were looking for another artifact to add to our collection, and THIS artifact happened to be guarded by a curse. The demon didn't care about the stick"
[00:01] Happy: You see a woman in the park playing a fiddle. A few young couples are dancing nearby.
[00:01] Murska: *applaud*
[00:01] MrEdwardNigma: "He was guarding the fifth artifact"
[00:01] Murska: wait for the song to end
[00:01] Murska: (fifth?)
[00:01] Murska: 'Nice playing.'
[00:01] Happy: Baxter: "The fifth artifact? What were the other three?"
[00:02] Shadowcaller: (the priests name was Gallain.)
[00:02] Happy: The woman takes a bow with a flourish. "Thank you, Sir. Did you step out of legend to hear my music?"
[00:03] Murska: 'Heh. I'm afraid I've just been bashed around in the normal ordinary Upper Plane.'
[00:03] Murska: 'But it sure is nice to hear some actual music.'
[00:03] Murska: 'You know any place where I could get a stringed instrument?'
[00:03] MrEdwardNigma: "The stick, the bukkit, a rock, and a musical instrument"
[00:04] MrEdwardNigma: "I'm not actually sure about the last one. We met that one later"
[00:05] Happy: The woman raises an eyebrow. "An elf who knows music. This I must hear. Do you play the fiddle?"
[00:05] Murska: 'I play anything.'
[00:06] Happy: The woman grins in challenge, and hands over her fiddle. "Go ahead then. Impress me."
[00:06] Murska: I play this: (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWPX5nr6esM)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWPX5nr6esM
[00:06] Shadowcaller: Cessie sees Murska at the corner of her eyes, <What is he doing now?>
[00:06] Murska: (but get a better version)
[00:06] Murska: (where you actually hear the music)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie decides to ignore Aegnor and instead walks up to a guard
[00:08] Happy: The bard listens for a moment, tapping her foot, and then when she has the beat, takes out a drum and accompanies him. More people drift into the square, attracted by the music
[00:08] Murska: (DRUM! MUST HAVE!)
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "Exhuse me officer?"
[00:09] Happy: Baxter *irritably* "Of course they are connected, you fool."
[00:09] Murska: (Cessie hears the music. :P)
[00:09] Happy: Guard: "Yes, ma'am?" He seems to be paying more attention to the music than to her
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (she ignores it for now)
[00:09] MrEdwardNigma: "Are they?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (she follows his gaze then
[00:10] Murska: (BTW, I'm also singing it)
[00:10] Murska: keeps playing
[00:10] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't remember comign across a kazoo in my research"
[00:10] Murska: when the solo comes, takes out a kazoo and plays a different melody on top of it
[00:11] Happy: "Not the musical instrument. I know nothing about that. I mean the bucket of devouring."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: (thats the most disturbing name I ever heard)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: (bukkit of devouring)
[00:12] MrEdwardNigma: "Well, I KNOW they are connected"
[00:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Murska play
[00:13] MrEdwardNigma: "Just not… how"
[00:13] MrEdwardNigma: "My notes were lacking"
[00:14] Murska: keeps making the solo more complex, then switches off the kazoo when it finally ends and sings the rest of the song
[00:14] Murska: ending it with a bow and a flourish
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (its a god-damn kazoo:P)
[00:14] Murska: 'Thanks, you have a great fiddle.'
[00:14] Murska: (as in, put into my pocket. :P)
[00:15] Shadowcaller: (how complex can it get?
[00:15] Murska: (Fiddle+kazoo
[00:15] Murska: and someone capable of using both with different styles at the same time
[00:15] Murska: pretty darn complex. :P)
[00:16] Happy: Much applause from the bystanders, and calls for more. The woman grins at Murska and says in a low voice. "Keep playing… I'll split the takings with you." She nods over to a trunk where several more instruments are resting.
[00:16] Happy: (brb)
[00:16] Murska: 'Sure.'
[00:16] MrEdwardNigma: "So, what is up with the items?"
[00:16] Murska: Starts playing different songs
[00:16] Murska: upbeat, and fast
[00:16] Shadowcaller: *Continues watching*
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (And I think we are killing happys fingers:P)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: *listening
[00:17] Murska: plays different genres and styles too, suprising the crowd. :P
[00:18] Happy: (happy needs food)
[00:18] Shadowcaller: (a resonable request, you may go)
[00:18] Murska: (fine. :P)
[00:18] Murska: (I'll play a game of SC)
[00:18] Shadowcaller: Aww
[00:20] Happy: (and i have no idea how the bucket and rod and rock are connected.. so if you guys want to speculate about that, feel free )
[00:20] MrEdwardNigma: I'll put it in my background, if you like
[00:20] MrEdwardNigma: again, what to do with background?
[00:20] Shadowcaller: (just don't add more villians:P)
[00:21] Shadowcaller: (didin't we decide that before?)
[00:21] MrEdwardNigma: (did we??? Why????)
[00:22] Shadowcaller: (um… I guess we didin't then)
[00:22] Shadowcaller: (So, we were cursed right?)
[00:23] MrEdwardNigma: are still
[00:23] MrEdwardNigma: Nigma still has one curse left
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: you and happy three
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: Murska one or two, not sure
[00:24] Murska: back
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: he couldn't hold money either
[00:24] Shadowcaller: (Yay)
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: not sure why
[00:24] Murska: ((Maybe it's contagious. :P))
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: he has his knowledge, but he may have lost his belonging too
[00:24] MrEdwardNigma: hard to tell
[00:24] Murska: I never had one
[00:25] Murska: anyway
[00:25] Murska: I was playing an epic concert
[00:25] Murska: for the population of a village
[00:25] Shadowcaller: And I was listening
[00:25] MrEdwardNigma: I think we were calling it a day
[00:25] MrEdwardNigma: or so happy said
[00:25] Shadowcaller: No?
[00:25] Shadowcaller: She just needed to eat
[00:26] Murska: well I got enough to do for four computers and 8 arms. I'd rather play this tho
[00:26] Shadowcaller: hehe
[00:26] MrEdwardNigma: I'd like to play too, but I don't feel like waiting, and it's getting pretty late out here
[00:26] Murska: if you were with us, you could RP… :P
[00:27] Happy: food almost ready.
[00:27] Happy: but if you want to go, it's okay
[00:27] Murska: well
[00:28] Murska: this is the most fun thing of all my stuff to do
[00:28] Shadowcaller: (well you know I'm here:P)
[00:28] MrEdwardNigma: hey, it's not like I don't want to be
[00:28] Shadowcaller: (I think I'm here a bit too much
[00:28] Murska: (:-O)
[00:29] MrEdwardNigma: anyways, sleep for me now
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Aww
[00:29] Happy: gnight
[00:29] Murska: (Anyway, I'm waiting to see if I manage to impress the lady)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Good night
[00:29] Murska: night
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (what lady? the bard?)
[00:29] Murska: (yah)
[00:29] Happy: The bard lady introduces herself as Marella, and she flirts with you quite outrageously during the concert
[00:30] Happy: you suspect that at least part of it is for the benefit of the audience
[00:30] Murska: (:P)
[00:30] Murska: (I do? :P)
[00:30] Happy: okay, maybe you don't. ^.^
[00:30] Murska: Anyway, Cessie's listening?
[00:30] Shadowcaller: I am
[00:31] *
MrEdwardNigma has left the conversation.
[00:31] Happy: Marella is very good, both at playing and singing
[00:31] Murska: 'Okay, I don't really have all day to spend, not even in the company of such a beautiful lady, but I'll finish this off with something a bit slower…' (Metallica-Unforgiven-ish)
[00:31] Happy: One of the villagers tries to get Cessie to dance with him
[00:32] Shadowcaller: *she don't want to, she looks away*
[00:32] Happy: awww… break the heart of the poor miller's son…
[00:32] Murska: (:P)
[00:32] Shadowcaller: *she seems more gloomy then usual*
[00:33] Murska: (What about Happy?)
[00:33] Happy: Happy seems to be enjoying herself, and is a fairly good dancer
[00:33] Murska: well then
[00:33] Murska: concert ends
[00:33] Happy: when the concert is over, the crowd reluctantly disperses
[00:34] Murska: Aegnor turns, bows with a flourish and grins.
[00:34] Murska: 'So, did I manage to impress you at all?'
[00:36] Happy: "Indeed," Marella says. "All the tales I know of elves speak of their power over nature. I never heard that they had power over music as well."
[00:36] Happy: "Will you be in this town long?"
[00:36] Murska: 'Well, I have been training for the better part of the last century…'
[00:37] Murska: 'I don't really know. I was dragged here unconscious by… *scans the crowd for my companions*
[00:37] Murska: 'My friends.'
[00:37] Murska: 'We don't have any plans as of yet.'
[00:37] Murska: *hands the fiddle back*
[00:37] Murska: 'This is a good instrument.'
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie gets eye contact with Aegnor
[00:37] Shadowcaller: She walk over
[00:37] Murska: 'Hey there. Enjoy the show? Feel any happier?'
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "It… was quite a show"
[00:38] Murska: 'Glad you think so. But imagine how much better it would have been with a lightshow… *wink*'
[00:38] Happy: Marella smiles at Cessie, but the smile doesn't reach her eyes.
[00:39] Shadowcaller: "You wish" *she gives Marella a look*
[00:39] Murska: 'Aww.'
[00:40] Murska: 'She's one of my friends. A mage.'
[00:40] Happy: "I was about to suggest to your… *friend*… that he stay here for a few days, let us work the village together." Marella says.
[00:40] Murska: (Happy gonna join us any time soon?)
[00:41] Happy: Happy's sitting under a tree nearby, resting.
[00:41] Murska: 'I got nothing against that… I need some instruments though.'
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "You did huh?"
[00:41] Murska: 'Oh, and you should know that for some reason none of us can handle any money… It disappears.'
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "It dose…"
[00:42] Happy: Marella's eyes widen. "I've heard tales of that curse."
[00:42] Murska: 'Really?'
[00:42] Murska: 'Tell me more…'
[00:42] Murska: 'I want to get rid of it.'
[00:42] Murska: 'I got nothing against being poor but some money is useful to own sometimes.'
[00:42] Shadowcaller: *remains quiet*
[00:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to have lost herself in the conversation again
[00:43] Shadowcaller: *she don't really know what to say*
[00:44] Happy: "I'm not sure I can help with that. The tales tend to have fairy tale solutions, like finding the apple of life atop the glass mountain."
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "We should leave…"
[00:44] Happy: "But then, I thought elves were a myth too…"
[00:45] Murska: 'Hm. Well, at least it's a known one. Might be able to find something about it.'
[00:45] Murska: while he's talking, he leads the group to Happy's tree
[00:45] Murska: 'Oh, and here's my other companion.'
[00:45] Shadowcaller: *remains behind the two bards*
[00:45] Shadowcaller: *behind
[00:45] Happy: Happy stands up as they approach. "You guys were great"
[00:45] Murska: 'Thank you.' *bow*
[00:46] Happy: Marella puts her hand on Murska's arm. "If you leave so soon, where are you going?"
[00:46] Shadowcaller: (hmm Now this starts to sound like one of those "harem mangas":P)
[00:46] Shadowcaller: *seems lost inside herself thinking*
[00:47] Murska: 'I don't have any plans right now. I'm just travelling around, like usual.'
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "Well, maybe we should avoid the forest?" she suddenly says
[00:47] Murska: 'I believe my companions wished to visit the Oracle's tower again though…'
[00:47] Murska: 'Oh, and yeah, the forest isn't a nice place. '
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "You wanted as far from it as possible remember?"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: She seems a bit angry
[00:48] Murska: 'Just as far as to be outside it's reach.'
[00:49] Happy: Marella watches and listens
[00:49] Happy: Happy shrugs. "I don't care about the Oracle. Wherever you guys want to go is fine with me."
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "Well, what do you think those zombies came from huh?"
[00:50] Murska: 'Hey, I'm pretty sure they won't be able to get to me here. And anyway, what's a life without risk?'
[00:50] Murska: *to Marella* 'Would you show me all your instruments?'
[00:50] Shadowcaller: "They must have taken humans in the past, otherwise there would be no zombies."
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "…is that what you bards call it?"
[00:51] Happy: "Certainly," Marella says. She smirks at Cessie's remark.
[00:51] Murska: *is almost ignoring Cessie* 'Hm? Call what?'
[00:51] Murska: *goes to examine the instrument*
[00:51] Murska: s
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Your hopeless…
[00:52] Happy: She's got a guitar, lute, fiddle, drums, tambourine, flute
[00:52] Murska: closer examination at guitar and drums
[00:52] Murska: 'So, what kind of music do you play?'
[00:52] Happy: Happy to Cessie: "What's wrong? Why are you so upset?"
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "Its nothing, he just acts like a idiot again."
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "We should try to learn more about the forest instead of looksing at a bunch of instruments."
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "He got no sense whatsoever about priotities
[00:54] Murska: (I so want to remark 'we know it's evil, that's enough for me')
[00:54] Happy: "But he likes music. Why shouldn't he look at instruments?"
[00:54] Murska: (Not to mention 'I prioritize having fun over study.')
[00:54] Shadowcaller: "One moment its like he is hundreds of years old, the next its like he is 15."
[00:54] Shadowcaller: (well she wants to know)
[00:55] Happy: Marella: "You've heard my main repertoire. I have a different style I use when I play for nobility."
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (she likes knowledge you know)
[00:55] Murska: 'You got a genre that's especially close to your heart?'
[00:56] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes to find a guard again unless happy replies
[00:56] Murska: (Oh, and I'm examining the guitar and the drums)
[00:56] Happy: Cessie finds a guard
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "Exhuse me officer?"
[00:56] Shadowcaller: *Excuse
[00:57] Happy: Marella in a low voice. "The wizard… she seems awfully possessive of you. Is she…?"
[00:57] Happy: Guard: "Yes, Ma'am?"
[00:58] Murska: 'Cessie? She loves her magic above all else. And is also on a bad mood right now.'
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "Do you happend to know anything about that forest here+"
[00:58] Murska: 'Nothing more than friendship between us.'
[00:58] Shadowcaller: *?
[00:59] Happy: Guard: "We know to stay away from it. Livestock that wanders in never comes out."
[00:59] Murska: Takes the guitar and strums some tunes. (What quality are the instruments and is the guitar in tune, also what are the drums like?)
[01:00] Happy: The instruments are good quality, and well cared for. The drums are like… eh, I know nothing about drums. Make something up :P
[01:00] Shadowcaller: "Any…disappearance?"
[01:00] Murska: ((Hmm. Drumset would be epic but impossible to actually carry around. :P))
[01:01] Murska: ((So I suppose they're just normal oldskool jungle drum styled ones. What about a linked twin-drum, maybe 9'' and 11'' and one larger, 16'' one?))
[01:01] Happy: "Occasionally. We try to keep the children from going that way."
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "You have never investigated it?"
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "I mean, you live right at the border of it:"
[01:02] Murska: *glances at Happy and Cessie, is seemingly satisfied that they're not getting themselves into trouble*
[01:02] Shadowcaller: (we getting intro trouble?:P)
[01:03] Shadowcaller: (*into)
[01:03] Murska: 'So, asking again… Do you have a certain genre you like the most? Light-hearted? *plays some tunes* Heavy? *Plays some more* Shredding, fast? *plays* Or sad ballad-style? *last demonstration*'
[01:04] Happy: "I think country dances are my favourite," she says.
[01:04] Happy: Guard: "In my father's day they tried to investigate it. All we know is that no one ever comes out."
[01:05] Murska: 'Works for me. I'm pretty diverse. I guess I like good music.' *grin*
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "No one? how far have anyone been and come out?"
[01:05] Murska: 'You think I could get a good guitar from anywhere near here with the amount of money we just gained?'
[01:06] Shadowcaller: (music in this setting seems oddly familiar, and so dose the instruments)
[01:06] Shadowcaller: (I don't think they had guitars in the dark ages:P)
[01:07] Happy: Guard: "What? Do you think we do tests? No one goes in at all, lady!"
[01:07] Murska: (The setting has guitars, and I bring the music. :P)
[01:07] Shadowcaller: "Have you tried to burn it? Cut it down?"
[01:07] Murska: (It better have. I'm planning on a magical version of an electric guitar…)
[01:08] Murska: (It's made of STONE)
[01:08] Murska: (sheesh)
[01:08] Shadowcaller: (oh dear…)
[01:08] Happy: Marella: "You'd need it custom made, I think." She smiles and hands him the guitar. "Take it. I play the lute more often anyway."
[01:08] Shadowcaller: (heck, its not actually stone, it just looks like stone)
[01:09] Murska: *is speechless for a moment*
[01:09] Murska: '…thanks.'
[01:09] Shadowcaller: (but no, its not burnalbe)
[01:09] Shadowcaller: *burnable
[01:09] Happy: "My father told stories of when they tried that. The zombies swarmed out from everywhere."
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "Zombies attacked?":-O
[01:10] Happy: Marella: "Well you can't use the money, right?"
[01:10] Murska: *looks at the guitar, lost in thought* 'hmm…'
[01:11] Murska: *envisions of some simple upgrades*
[01:11] Happy: Guard: "The zombies protect the forest. If we leave it alone, they leave us alone."
[01:11] Murska: (Instruments similar to the guitar have been popular for at least 5,000 years, SC)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (you just looked that up right now didin't you?)
[01:12] Murska: (yes. :P)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (*curses*)
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "Anything else you know about it? Anything."
[01:13] Murska: *Tests the tuning of the guitar carefully and quickly tunes it to a different style*
[01:14] Happy: Marella: "Why don't we get some drinks… get to know each other better?" *smiling*
[01:14] Murska: *snaps out of it*
[01:14] Happy: Guard *irritable*: "I told you, we stay away from it. And you should do the same."
[01:14] Murska: 'If you'll be the one buying… I don't happen to have any coin, as you might've guessed.' *smiles*
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "Very well, I think we will for now. Thanks for all the help officer."
[01:16] Happy: Marella packs up her instruments, and pays a couple of boys some coppers to carry the trunk back to the inn.
[01:17] Murska: * carefully inserts the guitar into a case and places it hanging on his waist level*
[01:18] Happy: And I think I'm out of creativity for the night
[01:18] Shadowcaller: Aw
[01:18] Murska: ((Well we seem to be just RPing anyway. :P
[01:19] Shadowcaller: ((just you wait for the spider druid…)
[01:19] Happy: RPing is creative :P
[01:19] Murska: Oddly enough, I suck at being creative
[01:19] Murska: but RPing just flows.
[01:19] Murska: It's natural.
[01:19] Murska: :P
[01:20] Happy: you don't suck at being creative. You just have a medium that works for you
[01:20] Shadowcaller: (well we do't have any mooney, what can we do in town?)
[01:20] Murska: (well… I suck at thinking up interesting stuff to write, in most circumstances, then)
[01:20] Murska: (And I gained us some money and a handler for it just now. ;)
[01:21] Murska: anyway, I suppose Aegnor and Marella head for the inn
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (will sucks to be Nigma if the party wil be split when he is the GM:P)
[01:21] Happy: yes, where she gets you drunk and tries to seduce you
[01:21] Shadowcaller: *will
[01:21] Murska: (Eh. I avoid getting drunk.)
[01:21] Murska: (But seduction doesn't sound so bad. :P)
[01:22] Shadowcaller: (I bet it dosen't…)
[01:22] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes to find happy again
[01:22] Happy: She's an adventurous bard girl. Of course she's going to try and get the first elf she's ever met into bed ;)
[01:23] Murska: (:P)
[01:23] Happy: Cessie finds Happy.
[01:23] Shadowcaller: "Were is Aegnor?"
[01:23] Murska: I assume that at this point we're just drinking.
[01:24] Happy: yeah
[01:24] Shadowcaller: "Don't tell me ran off with that girl…"
[01:24] Happy: "They went to the inn."
[01:24] Murska: (I resent that comment! You were the one who left me. :P)
[01:24] Shadowcaller: "We need to find a place to stay, and a way to hold money."
[01:25] Shadowcaller: "Any ideas?"
[01:25] Murska: attempt to get Marella to tell him about her life
[01:25] Murska: attempts*
[01:26] Happy: "If we got someone to give it to us in a pouch, and we didn't touch it, we should be okay. Nigma's money didn't disappear unless I touched it directly."
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "I guess… were do we get a pouch then?"
[01:26] Shadowcaller: *looks around*
[01:28] Happy: "If we find a way to earn money, I'm sure whoever pays us can provide the pouch as part of the payment."
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "And that brings us back to the question how we get money… from a job that is."
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Didin't Aegnor earn anything from that show he pulled?"
[01:29] Happy: "You know how to write, don't you?"
[01:30] Shadowcaller: "Um… I think so."
[01:30] Happy: "You could get work as a scribe, I bet."
[01:31] Murska: (Oh, and I'm attempting to get Marella to tell me about herself, btw)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "In this town? Hmm thats not a job you can leave just like that thought."
[01:31] Happy: oh yeah, extroverted bard has no problem telling stories about herself. Some of them might even be true.
[01:31] Murska: (:P)
[01:32] Murska: (Do I gather anything reasonably true-sounding? :P)
[01:32] Happy: "It isn't? I thought they just paid by the page."
[01:32] Murska: (Oh, and her personality too)
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "They are? Well then we can try to find anything then."
[01:33] Shadowcaller: (the best of being a wizard is that you don't really need to be afraid of anyhting)
[01:33] Happy: Marella is friendly, extroverted, adventurous, and loves attention. She came from the lower lands but climbed the tree because it was too awesome not to climb.
[01:33] Shadowcaller: *anything
[01:33] Murska: (:P)
[01:33] Murska: (Does she get drunk?)
[01:34] Murska: *asks about how much money we earned*
[01:34] Happy: She gets a little tipsy, but she's able to hold her liquor very well.
[01:34] Happy: She splits the money, after deducting for the guitar. It's not a huge amount.
[01:34] Murska: (Aegnor doesn't drink that much and also holds his liquor well.)
[01:35] Murska: 'Hm. Do you have a pouch to go with that? I can't really touch those.'
[01:35] Happy: Happy asks around and gets work mucking out stables.
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Cessie hopes that she can afford a bath after that
[01:35] Murska: *demonstrates by touching a copper piece and making it disappear*
[01:35] Happy: Heh
[01:36] Happy: Marella laughs, shaking her head in disbelief. "I have to be dreaming. And elf and a gold curse in the same day. Stories come to life."
[01:36] Happy: She puts the money in a pouch for you, and ties it to your belt.
[01:36] Murska: 'Indeed they do.' *laughs*
[01:36] Murska: 'Thank you.'
[01:36] Shadowcaller: (that elf is just too much:P)
[01:37] Shadowcaller: Anyway I look for some jobs that could suit my style
[01:38] Happy: Cessie is able to find work transcribing documents, once she proves that she knows how to read and write.
[01:38] Murska: meanwhile things proceed in the inn, I suppose. :P
[01:38] Shadowcaller: (yay)
[01:38] Happy: *yawn*
[01:39] Happy: i really can't keep this up
[01:39] Murska: 'kay.
[01:39] Shadowcaller: Aww
[01:39] Murska: Later today then. :P Maybe in some 14 hours.
[01:39] Happy: everyone has a small amount of money now
[01:39] Shadowcaller: You know that your holiday ends tomorrow right?
[01:39] Happy: Cessie earned the most, Happy the least (unskilled labour)
[01:40] Murska: yah
[01:40] Murska: so?
[01:40] Murska: I suppose we end up in bed unless you two barge in and interrupt.
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (well you can't be up this late then)
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (don't you think? there is no protection in this world!)
[01:41] Happy: No interruption from Happy. She's mucking out stables.
[01:41] Murska: (I'm always up late.
[01:41] Murska: (I usually fall into school rythm by skipping a night.)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: I'm going to find somewhere to stay
[01:41] Happy: Bard girl has her own methods for avoiding… complications.
[01:42] Murska: (I assume so. :P)
[01:42] Murska: (This village has more than one inn?)
[01:42] Shadowcaller: (the girl need to do everyhting?)
[01:42] Happy: No, just the one inn.
[01:42] Shadowcaller: Well then thats the place I go to then
[01:42] Happy: there aren't that many travellers past the zombie forest
[01:43] Happy: Happy goes there too, immediately getting a bath
[01:43] Shadowcaller: Whats going on inside the inn?
[01:43] Happy: you guys just won't let me quit, will you? :P
[01:44] Murska: Never! :P
[01:44] Shadowcaller: ;)
[01:44] Happy: i guess that means you had fun
[01:44] Happy: even though there were no fights
[01:44] Murska: Yeah. :P
[01:44] Murska: RPing is fun.
[01:44] Murska: Well, anyway, I suppose Aegnor will be back in it the next morning so this is a good spot to end it.
[01:44] Murska: For me, that is.
[01:45] Shadowcaller: Well, did you have intercourse with the bard then?
[01:45] Happy: yeah, we can restart the next morning. you can decide for yourself how much fun you had with the girl
[01:45] Shadowcaller: Don't tempt him…
[01:45] Murska: I guess I'll leave that ambiguous for now. :P
[01:45] Shadowcaller: I guess they are already doing it when i arrive?
[01:46] Murska: I'll just say we arrive from the same room in the morning, refreshed. :P
[01:46] Shadowcaller: *still wonders how many half-elves there are*
[01:46] Happy: heh
[01:46] Murska: (Well, if the elves hadn't disappeared, they'd be supplanting humans, at least with how Aegnor is doing. :P)
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Do I hear anything from the rooms then?
[01:47] Happy: hey, if you leave it up to me, I'd say elves and humans couldn't have viable offspring together. too genetically different.
[01:48] Murska: (Ooh. Pervert Cessie listening eh? :P)
[01:48] Shadowcaller: No…
[01:48] Murska: I don't really have an opinion on the matter.
[01:48] Murska: Might be usable as a plot point at some point but doesn't affect it at all right now.
[01:49] Shadowcaller: Well half elves can be like mules
[01:49] Shadowcaller: they can't have children
[01:49] Happy: maybe
[01:50] Murska: Works for me. Also they only live some hundreds of years so that explains why they're rare now that the elves are gone.
[01:51] Shadowcaller: Well before we end this, I go inside the inn and order a room with happy
[01:54] Happy: ok
[01:54] Shadowcaller: I don't notice Aegnor right?
[01:54] Happy: is Cessie still in a bad mood?
[01:54] Shadowcaller: She is
[01:54] Murska: Unless you go peek into random rooms, I don't think you find me.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: I don't
[01:55] Shadowcaller: (depends how "loud" you are thought:P)
[01:56] Murska: (Shouldn't be that uncommon in inns. And it's not like we're unnaturally loud. :P)
[01:56] Murska: well, do Cessie and Happy chat any more or is this is for tonight?
[01:56] Shadowcaller: (Well, I think it was less common in those days)
[01:57] Happy: hey, the modern age didn't invent sex, you know
[01:57] Shadowcaller: (well they didin't have protection and all
[01:57] Murska: rly? :P
[01:58] Shadowcaller: (at t least having sex with some stranger you meet once would be less "populare"
[01:58] Happy: there have always been methods of contraception, they just weren't terribly reliable
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Mhm
[01:58] Shadowcaller: And some of them dangerous
[01:58] Happy: yeah
[01:59] Murska: (Besides, strangers are new and more exciting than the dirty mudfarmers normally around. :P)
[01:59] Happy: herbal conconctions to terminate pregnancies
[01:59] Happy: also, this is a world with magic. maybe she has some sort of magic item :P
[01:59] Shadowcaller: (well this world got magic, so lets go with that)
[01:59] Murska: (:P Exactly.)
[01:59] Murska: (Double-ninja'd)
[02:00] Shadowcaller: Happy and I sleep then?
[02:00] Happy: yep. happy sleeps well, after a day's hard work
[02:00] Murska: She prolly got a good look at her forehead in the bath aswell.
[02:00] Murska: (Happy always sleeps well. :P)
[02:01] Happy: so give me some sort of idea where you guys are going next, so i know what to prepare for?
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Hmm.. well I want to discover more about this worm
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (also, the druids are still around)
[02:02] Shadowcaller: I'm going for every druid to have a special "animal"
[02:02] Happy: and Murska attracted a lot of attention to himself today, didn't he? ;)
[02:02] Murska: I'll be following the party around, I want to visit the dwarf mine from earlier because of a feeling
[02:02] Murska: which has to do with the curse of the armor
[02:02] Murska: and I'll be playing music. :P
[02:02] Happy: you're wearing cursed armor?
[02:02] Murska: Oh, and if we get into a fight, I'll attempt to increase my bodycount. :P
[02:03] Murska: Nah, the armor's still in the mine
[02:03] Murska: card
[02:03] Shadowcaller: He was, the curse is still there thought
[02:03] Murska: cart*
[02:03] Murska: Still haven't seen any adverse effects tho
[02:03] Murska: :P
[02:03] Happy: what kind of curse?
[02:03] Happy: Happy doesn't have any weapons at the moment
[02:03] Happy: she'll need to do something about that
[02:03] Shadowcaller: The orginal curse was that you could not eat meat, but I let happy decide that since I already gave up that curse
[02:03] Murska: well I can loan her some
[02:03] Murska: I got enough to spare. :P
[02:04] Happy: heh
[02:04] Shadowcaller: I asked a lot of people about those curses…
[02:04] Murska: hm. lessee, what do I have…
[02:04] Happy: *snicker* *evil thought*
[02:04] Shadowcaller: Then they weren't used that much *sigh*
[02:04] Murska: 2 longswords, 6 daggers, mace, axe, saw, spade
[02:04] Murska: shovel, that is
[02:04] Murska: :P
[02:04] Happy: *ponders the idea of a curse of impotence*
[02:04] Murska: dunno if they have a difference
[02:04] Shadowcaller: Haha
[02:04] Murska: *ponders the idea of it being his GM turn soon…*
[02:05] Murska: *also ponders to how he shall horribly avenge such a thing*
[02:05] Shadowcaller: The items were twisted by the worm by the way
[02:05] Shadowcaller: the "taint"
[02:05] Murska: throwing axe, too
[02:05] Murska: and a longbow
[02:05] Murska: and a guitar. :P
[02:06] Murska: and full leather armor
[02:06] Shadowcaller: All armors except the magic one have become dust inside the tomb
[02:06] Shadowcaller: *ones
[02:06] Shadowcaller: …
[02:06] Shadowcaller: The rest of the tomb is up to you happy
[02:06] Happy: gah… i don't remember a tomb
[02:06] Murska: the underground cave.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: It was the dwarf mine
[02:07] Murska: with dwarves and gollum clone
[02:07] Happy: ok
[02:07] Shadowcaller: On the other side was the tomb thought
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Were the dwarves worked
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Nigma still got that gollum ring
[02:08] Happy: i wonder… if maybe the Whispering Worm and the Mountain that Walks are at war for control of the Tree
[02:08] Shadowcaller: Sure, I let you do anything with my elder gods:P
[02:08] Murska: Well, Mountain that Walks should be all but dead
[02:08] Murska: at least if gods work with belief.
[02:08] Shadowcaller: They don't
[02:09] Murska: Or well, magical perversions in this case.
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Not elder gods atleast
[02:09] Happy: besides, there are always insane cultists
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Mhm
[02:09] Murska: :P
[02:09] Murska: yah
[02:10] Happy: the Mountain made the rod, bucket, and stone
[02:10] Happy: the Worm twisted the cursed items
[02:10] Murska: The Kazoo is an artifact then? Or just something self-made to enchance my abilities?
[02:11] Shadowcaller: Hehe, maybe the dancer *evil smile*
[02:11] Shadowcaller: I made up a lot of evil dieties:P
[02:11] Murska: No good ones tho. :P
[02:11] Shadowcaller: The dwarfs had some
[02:11] Shadowcaller: And you only worship nature anyway
[02:12] Murska: Heh. I worship nothing. :P
[02:12] Happy: I think the Kazoo is just an enchanted instrument. Not an ancient artifact
[02:12] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[02:12] Murska: Works. I can live without an ancient artifact.
[02:12] Murska: *mutter*pfft… no artifact for me eh… they'll pay…*/mutter*
[02:12] Happy: also makes it easier to explain if the artifacts were all found in the same general area
[02:13] Happy: i was expecting Nigma to destroy Poppy
[02:13] Shadowcaller: Poppy?
[02:13] Happy: the clockwork girl
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Oh:P
[02:14] Happy: then Baxter would have gone psycho freak out
[02:14] Shadowcaller: That would have been stupid thought
[02:14] Shadowcaller: And Nigma is not stupid I hope
[02:14] Happy: yeah, he's not stupid, but he does have a temper
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Well remember the werewolfs;)
[02:15] Happy: i don't remember werewolfs…
[02:15] Shadowcaller: Was about the last thing I introduced before we wnt to bed
[02:15] Shadowcaller: Howling wolfs…
[02:15] Shadowcaller: *went
[02:15] Shadowcaller: At Nigma that is
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Maybe they are connected to the mountin or something?
[02:16] Happy: ah, okay
[02:16] Happy: i have an appallingly bad memory
[02:16] Shadowcaller: *mountain
[02:16] Shadowcaller: You noticed my first turn right?:P
[02:17] Murska: I didn't remember that either. :P
[02:17] Murska: Might've been cuz I was gone tho
[02:17] Murska: also
[02:17] Shadowcaller: Yeah

[02:17] Happy: the artifacts attract enemies
[02:17] Murska: I'm scared now
[02:17] Murska: I mean
[02:17] Murska: Happy's gone one more GM turn
[02:17] Happy: and Nigma's carrying two of them
[02:17] Murska: and then it's me
[02:17] Murska: and I can't plan stuff.
[02:17] Murska: at all.
[02:17] Shadowcaller: Just make up stuff
[02:17] Shadowcaller: It worked hwe you made that backstory
[02:17] Shadowcaller: *when
[02:17] Murska: so you might see the story take off pretty oddly. I'll just react to what you guys do. :P
[02:17] Happy: yeah, just rp it out
[02:18] Happy: you're good at that
[02:18] Murska: Really?
[02:18] Happy: we didn't have personalities during your first turn
[02:18] Happy: and now we do
[02:18] Shadowcaller: Just remember the things we have implanted
[02:18] Happy: so it will be easier
[02:18] Murska: Well my first turn was basically getting used to the format.
[02:18] Murska: wasn't much interaction either
[02:18] Happy: yeah, and we aren't even really using the same format anymore
[02:18] Murska: Yah. :P
[02:18] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[02:19] Murska: the commands we use would require the most advanced IF ever to interpret.
[02:19] Murska: :P
[02:19] Happy: i mean, i didn't give you guys any problems to solve or guys to fight
[02:19] Happy: just people to talk to
[02:19] Murska: but we still had fun
[02:19] Murska: :P
[02:19] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[02:19] Murska: The story must be captivating.
[02:19] Murska: Once we get into a sufficient spot, we should turn it into a novel. :P
[02:19] Shadowcaller: Well, just don't intruduce more enemies then we already have Murska:P
[02:19] Murska: reeeally? :P
[02:20] Shadowcaller: *introduce
[02:21] Murska: Hmm. I think leaving Nigma's actions uncertain during Nigma's turn would work fine, if we meet him afterwards in SCs… The focus would be on the main party and it'd give us some leeway to see what's happened to him without having to flesh out a whole new Plane just for him.
[02:21] Shadowcaller: Well, its going to be hard for him to return to the party
[02:22] Shadowcaller: RP-wise
[02:22] Murska: he won't probably be joining into the party, at least any time soon
[02:22] Murska: but a confrontation should be inevitable since one person RPing solo isn't really the point
[02:23] Shadowcaller: Maybe we should have something that forces him to us?;)
[02:23] Happy: simple… he finds out he needs the rock for something important
[02:23] Murska: :P
[02:23] Murska: Hm. Happy isn't too attached to her bukkit anymore? Haven't seen her worry about it at all.
[02:23] Shadowcaller: Hard to steal a rock that always returns thought
[02:24] Happy: Happy's too busy feeling guilty and that she deserves whatever bad things happened to her
[02:24] Murska: Aww.
[02:24] Murska: I sure hope Aegnor notices that soon so he can start trying to fix it. :P
[02:25] Shadowcaller: What are you? Dr. Phil?:P
[02:25] Shadowcaller: Stupid elfs…
[02:25] Shadowcaller: *elves
[02:25] Murska: :P
[02:25] Murska: I'm just really emotionally attached to my only friends. :P
[02:26] Shadowcaller: Looks like more then that right now…
[02:26] Murska: I originally planned only to like Happy but it turned out like this after that massive RP with Cessie. :P
[02:26] Shadowcaller: At least if we can belive you comments
[02:26] Murska: That's just regular Bard talk. :P
[02:26] Shadowcaller: And thats why i don't like bards^^
[02:27] Murska: Hey, not his fault your character happens to be a girl. :P
[02:27] Shadowcaller: He can't help himslef can he?
[02:27] Shadowcaller: *himself
[02:27] Murska: That's just the way he acts. To lighten the mood when you're moping about something again. :P
[02:28] Happy: heh
[02:28] Murska: Happy's the level-headed counterweight. :P
[02:28] Shadowcaller: Well, everyone can't be cheerful
[02:28] Murska: Yeah, but Aegnor believes everyone should be. :P
[02:28] Shadowcaller: Bah, I will show him
[02:29] Shadowcaller: Your in a world with elder gods, nothing to be happy about exactly:P
[02:29] Shadowcaller: Or cosmic horrors to be more exact
[02:29] Murska: well
[02:30] Murska: there's Happy to be happy about
[02:30] Murska: :P
[02:30] Shadowcaller: Yeah, I totally didin't see that coming
[02:30] Murska: Ooh. I thought it'd be obvious. (no sarcasm detector… :P)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: *rolls eyes*
[02:31] Shadowcaller: Well, I'm still going to introduce horror elements
[02:31] Happy: tree quakes
[02:31] Happy: the worm eating away at it
[02:32] Murska: gonna be a horrible amount of work to edit the logs into anything resembling text…
[02:32] Shadowcaller: Its actually in the trunk…*evil smile*
[02:32] Murska: Maybe we should just use them as material
[02:32] Murska: and write the story based on these events. :P
[02:32] Happy: should we stick this stuff in a wiki somewhere?
[02:32] Shadowcaller: Haha
[02:32] Murska: Heh.
[02:33] Murska: We got an epic setting, some epic RPers and one Murska.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: Then I have to introduce the other horrors:P
[02:33] Murska: This could easily create a good story.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: Heck, the whole world is dreamed by one
[02:33] Shadowcaller: Thats something to think about…
[02:33] Murska: Sheesh. Too many horrors, too little cheers. :P
[02:34] Murska: Well, we'll just go horror-slaying. ;)
[02:34] Happy: hey, you got a hot bard chick. that's something un-horrible
[02:34] Murska: Yah. :P
[02:34] Murska: SC'll just transmute her into a zombie or something. :P
[02:34] Happy: haha
[02:34] Happy: there ya go
[02:34] Happy: the zombie bard
[02:35] Happy: you hear the music and follow it.. then she turns around
[02:35] Murska: hm. Epic band idea forming… :P
[02:35] Shadowcaller: Not again…
[02:35] Shadowcaller: What members?
[02:35] Murska: I've not given up on Cessie yet. :P
[02:35] Shadowcaller: I bet you don't…
[02:35] Murska: She has the talent to be a better singer than either of us.
[02:35] Shadowcaller: Even the bard girl? o.O
[02:36] Happy: Marella isn't joining the party
[02:36] Murska: Well, I sort of assumed that we're on similar level of vocal skills.
[02:36] Happy: unless Nigma wants to roleplay hr
[02:36] Murska: Yah.
[02:36] Murska: That too. :P
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Nigma can join that stupid cult instead…
[02:37] Murska: Wonder when we'll have Happy notice her latent drum-bashing skillz. :P
[02:37] Happy: heh
[02:37] Shadowcaller: I'm not going to a bandmember:P
[02:37] Happy: *happy bashes drum* *fist bursts through skin*
[02:38] Murska: You'll be our 'technician' then if you really won't sing. :P
[02:38] Shadowcaller: *sigh*
[02:38] Murska: Imagine it… A band touring the world, slaying horrors and rocking on.
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Ugh, far too positive
[02:38] Shadowcaller: they can't die you know
[02:39] Murska: Hmf. Well, casting them off this plane of existance so they're no longer a threat.
[02:39] Shadowcaller: Well, one of them actually dreams the world, what are you going to do about that huh?
[02:40] Murska: Grab a different one. :P
[02:40] Shadowcaller: Well techically that horror is not a threat unless it wakes up…
[02:40] Shadowcaller: And then it dosen't matter anyway
[02:41] Murska: Poison it's mind and control it, thus obtaining ultimate power over the world
[02:41] Murska: make it create the world into reality
[02:41] Murska: and then make it suicide
[02:41] Murska: :P
[02:41] Shadowcaller: Thats going to happend… (not!)
[02:42] Shadowcaller: And we can hardly kill bandits yet:P
[02:42] Murska: Well, I've been practicing archery and thrown weapons whenever I can. :P
[02:42] Shadowcaller: Hehe, well when the enemy is a form-less mass of flesh…
[02:43] Shadowcaller: and thats only their servants:P
[02:44] Murska: as long as it has something physical to hit
[02:44] Murska: Aegnor has something to hit it with.
[02:44] Murska: :P
[02:44] Murska: and if it's spiritual, that's when we turn to Cessie
[02:44] Murska: :P
