Full Party 1

Shadowcaller säger:
Well, you are still inside that room…
And I guess Derek comes inside.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
And sees Hector and Wren still looking all miserable…
Elly säger:
And sobbing. >.>
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
That's only Wren. Hector has stopped crying and is just trying to comfort her.
Aegnor säger:
My other character has a piece of the fourth wall as a memento
Derek knocks on the door.
Elly säger:
Wren looks mournfully at Hector, "Would you get it…?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yeah, sure. Come on though, we need to put this aside for now. Maybe we can organise a funeral, and if you need to talk about it tonight…"
Hector lets the offer drop. He's simply making it clear that he's willing to sit down and listen and help, but right now, they can't just sit here all day. With that, he gets up and opens the door.
Aegnor säger:
'Hey, thought I'd check in…'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Ehh, now's not really a good time I'm afraid."
Elly säger:
There's a choked sob, "N-no… it's alright…"
Aegnor säger:
(Hm, IIRC the commander said I have to leave anyway since the king or whatever wants children gone from the city?)
Shadowcaller säger:
(yes.)
Aegnor säger:
'Well, I'm about to leave and from what I heard, you will, aswell.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"…huh?"
Elly säger:
"W-we're leaving…?"
Aegnor säger:
'Apparently the king doesn't like demons attacking the city.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"…and?"
Aegnor säger:
'And the demons are going to do anything to get their hands on the children. That's you, and me, apparently.'
Elly säger:
( It's our fault. >.> )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(…how?0
*)
Elly säger:
( For being here. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Bleh. Nonsense)
Aegnor säger:
(any responses?)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Wait, you're a child as well?"
Aegnor säger:
'Found out in the fight.'
Elly säger:
"What… can you do?"
Aegnor säger:
'I can stop things from moving. Saved my life, so I like it.'
'I've got the list but what exactly can you do?
Elly säger:
Wren looks up at him with tear stained eyes, "Not enough."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No. Wren, don't think like that!"
Aegnor säger:
'None of us can do /enough/. But we can do something, which means we have to try.'
Shadowcaller säger:
(>.>)

Elly har lämnat konversationen.

Shadowcaller säger:
(I guess we have to stop again…)

Elly har lagts till i konversationen.

Shadowcaller säger:
Elly säger:
She sighs, and gets up, "Where are we supposed to go? We made the entire journey here for somewhere to stay…"
(You dropped.)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
huh?
Elly säger:

Shadowcaller säger:
(Elly did.)
Elly säger:
Damnit.
Aegnor säger:
'Well, I was told the only way we'd be safe is killing the demon whose powers we have.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"All it took was two of those bird things and a single fireball and I was down. I'm…not much good against demons."
Aegnor säger:
'That's quite a lot, considering you're alive.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yeah, but…how the heck am I supposed to be any use against the demon whose powers we have?"
Aegnor säger:
'Probably just as much as me. What exactly can you do, anyway?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"It's…complicated. I can move and shape the earth, but the larger or more complicated the change, the longer it takes."
(And so far this campaign has had precious little in way of opportunities for ambush)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Eh, there will be more now. Since your the hunters now… sort of.)
Elly säger:
"Shadows… I can… control them…" She mumbles quietly, "We're going to try and hunt a demon…?"
Shadowcaller säger:

Elly säger:
( …did I drop from the big chat, too? )
Shadowcaller säger:
(Yeah, I'll reinvite you.)
Elly säger:
( Thankies! ^.^ )
Aegnor säger:
'You don't need to. But it will hunt you.'
Shadowcaller säger:
(*pokes players* Yeah, MSN RP needs a bit more attention then pbp RP >.>)
Elly säger:
( <.< )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Eep! Getting distracted by stuff again. Sorry v.v)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Eh, I play a game at the same time)
Happy säger:
(haha! Gondar went down. Good job, Murs. ^^ )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"So, we can't really stay here, and if we don't go after it…it'll come after us? Great." Hector sighs. Heads the demons win, tails he loses and has to go after the demon. "Wren?"
Aegnor säger:
(Yes!)
(We'll see how they do without pants NOW)
Elly säger:
( … )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(That's…a very weird thing to say.)
Elly säger:
"Yeah… let's go." She sighs, tiredly.
Happy säger:
(Gondar has no pants. Gondar NEEDS no pants!)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Gondar?)
Elly säger:
( … >.> )
Happy säger:
(Gondar of Egypt. Formerly of Ethiopia.)
Elly säger:
( You conquered a conquered city? >.> )
Happy säger:
(We're Egypt)
Elly säger:
( Ahh. )
Shadowcaller säger:
(So you leave then?)
Elly säger:
*nod*
Shadowcaller säger:
(Anything you do before that? I assume you get ordinary supplies, Wren and Hector also get horses, have they ridden before?)
Elly säger:
( Only a little. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(He's a merc. He's got a fair amount of experience.)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Okay. Well you soon leave Derim behind before anyone notices you even are gone.)
The sky is oddly red as you travel across the road.
According to the map, ashenvale lies off the main road, it takes a few days before you begin to see the forest around you.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Ashenvale? Forest? )
Shadowcaller säger:
(Hey!)
(I had to steal…)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
Shadowcaller säger:
(That happends when you have to make up a lot of names during a short time.)
Elly säger:
( *renames Silvanian, throws the VonCarstiens in* )
Shadowcaller säger:
(Anyway… >.>)
(I sort of assumed none of you had played WoW.)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Pssh. Silly SC.)
Shadowcaller säger:
The terrain becomes harder and harder to get across, this can hardly be called a road at all.)
It's in terrible condition with roots growing out of the ground.
What pace are you traveling at?
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(*Checks horse vocabulary*)
Um…trotting? Something around that pace?
Elly säger:
( Incredible breakneck speed! …not really… )
Aegnor säger:
(literally, Elly)
(in this kinda terrain)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(A trot isn't gonna break your neck on uneven ground.)
Aegnor säger:
(going fast will, however)
Shadowcaller säger:
Right, well the horses still have problems
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Great. The horses suck.
Shadowcaller säger:
There are huge trees growing at each side of the road which can explain the roots.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Horses can go through forests at a canter!
Aegnor säger:
However, the riders usually get left behind
Elly säger:

Shadowcaller säger:
You have a hard time seeing into the forest beacuse of the trees.
Aegnor säger:
Where is that cursed forest? Too many trees around to see!
Shadowcaller säger:
*sigh* Well, you get what I mean >.>
Elly säger:
Drat. I was sure there was a forest here a minute ago…
Aegnor säger:
We're at a road, anyway. It's got to lead to some place. Rome, eventually.
Elly säger:
Dammit Rome, stoppit with the roads!
*pushes fastfoward, unless SC wants to do things?* >.>
Shadowcaller säger:
Eventually the trees start to thin out, replaced by stubs.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(And I have to go eat.)
Elly säger:
I love stubs!
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(BBS)
Shadowcaller säger:
It looks like someone been cutting down a lot of trees here.

General *grumble* Shrimp har lämnat konversationen.

Shadowcaller säger:
(He needed to leave for that? >.>)
(Eh, I will continue to Ceros Keep.)
Eventually, you can see a wooden wall in the distance, a lot of workers going around it.
Elly säger:
( I love walls! They do all kinds of neat things. )
Shadowcaller säger:
The gate just have an opening, there is no gate.
*wall
The workers stare at you as you approaches the town. Beyond the wall you cna see a few wooden structures and a stone tower of sort in the middle of the village. It looks like it might be used as a temple.
It's a dirty little town, it don't look like many rich people live around here.
Elly säger:
( Resist… urge… to throw… money at them… for laughs…)
Shadowcaller säger:
There isn't much to it beside the stone structure in the middle.
It is located right between three hills, the wooden wall is covering the opening.
Everyone here appears to be working with cutting down the forest or supporting the workers in some way.
Aegnor säger:
Anyone who looks like worth speaking to?
Shadowcaller säger:
There is also a number of guards around, keeping watch.
One of them walks up to you… and here we wait for shrimp?
Aegnor säger:
Apparently
also, I should sleep a longer night some day
Shadowcaller säger:

Aegnor säger:
Elly, Shrimp, get online five hours earlier
Elly säger:
*nod*
*forces Shrimp to be on earlier*
Shadowcaller säger:
Or we can continue…
"What are you doing here strangers? You don't look like workers."
Aegnor säger:
'Travelling.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Looks like you made a wrong turn then."
Aegnor säger:
'In fact I'd like to meet someone called Luna Moontouched.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"…wait, her?! How do you know her?"
Aegnor säger:
'I don't /know/ her, I've heard the name.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Hmph, so your here for the reward then I take it?"
Aegnor säger:
'Reward? Unlikely.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I let you speak to the cap then, he knows some things about her."
"He's in the 'keep' right now I think, but I say, I be glad if your here to get rid of that bitch."
The guard points at the stone structure at the middle of town.
Aegnor säger:
'All right.'
Shadowcaller säger:
( I assume you place your horses somewhere?)
Elly säger:
Wren will stay with them! >.>
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Well, Hector is going to stay with Wren. After all, weird place, she's little miss spineless…
Aegnor säger:
Derek glances at them. 'You're staying here? All right, I'll try to be back soon.'
Happy säger:
(are you guys *trying* to avoid adventure? )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Naw.)
Elly säger:
( Only a little. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Elly's character is just an absolute coward. There's no way Hector is leaving her on her own.)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Pffh, adventures always find PC's eventually.) Derek go up to the keep then?
Elly säger:
( I also enjoy letting Shrimpy talk through the long encounters. So with Murky's new guy… >.> )
Aegnor säger:
yup
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Elly is just lazy, in other words.)
Aegnor säger:
(well, inside a keep is safer from demons than outside, I hope )
Elly säger:
( Pff. Look at your demon hunter Keep. It just gives them a bigger target. >.> )
Shadowcaller säger:
There are two guards there "Haly, state your bussniess!"
*halt
(Thought Haly would be an awsome word…)
Aegnor säger:
(well, that was a set of wooden houses out in the open)
'Hi there. I'm supposed to go in to talk to whoever's in charge.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Oh, thats Captain Ferlden. He's inside somewhere."
"Just don't make a mess okay? We have just cleaned in there."
Aegnor säger:
'I won't?' He gives the man an odd look and walks inside.
Shadowcaller säger:
You enter a round room with three doors (not including the one you are entering from) set with an equal distance from each other. All the doors are open and you can see off-duty guards walking around, eating etc…
There is also a ladder leading up the the floor above.
The guards give you some looks, but appears to just assume you are there for something.
Aegnor säger:
Anyone looking like a captain on this floor?
Shadowcaller säger:
Not what you can see.
Aegnor säger:
Then he heads to the floor above.
Shadowcaller säger:
The next floor is entierly empty, just a few barrels, ropes and windows made to be used with a crossbow.
There is yet another ladder leading to another floor.
Going up those stairs takes you to the top.
Aegnor säger:
Floor number three then
Shadowcaller säger:
Now, you see a guy that might be the captain, he is looking out from the keep with some type of binocular instrument
Aegnor säger:
'Hey.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Huh?" He takes away the instrument and looks at you "Who are you?"
Aegnor säger:
'Derek, good to meet you. Would you happen to be Ferlden?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yes, I am actually. Why? I haven't seen you around here before."
Aegnor säger:
'Because I just arrived. I was told to speak to you since I need to find a certain druid, Luna Moontouched.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Oh… Luna… well, she's here alright. Somwhere in the woods…"
"There is a reward for her you know? She have been making trouble for the wood cutters."
Aegnor säger:
'Right. Well, I'm going to hopefully get her off of your back one way or another. Any ideas how to find her? Or should we go chop down trees at random?'
Shadowcaller säger:
Ferlden sigh "She dosen't want to be found… what exactly do you wnat with her?"
*want
Aegnor säger:
'A chat.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Fair enough… if you kill her thought, I didn't have anything to do with it. She usually hangs around the ruins to the east, the ruins of star light, just follow the stream coming from mount Jiall and you will find it."
Aegnor säger:
'Thanks. I'll try to avoid killing anyone if possible but she shouldn't trouble anyone afterwards.'
He turns and heads back down.
Shadowcaller säger:
He heads back to the others then?
Aegnor säger:
yup
Shadowcaller säger:
Okay… Derek returns.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hector waves.
Aegnor säger:
'Okay, got a location. She's apparently an outlaw of some sort.'
I suppose they head there
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Depends.
Does Wren want to go?
Elly säger:
Wren nods, "Sure, I'll come along."
Aegnor säger:
Well, they aren't actually going to return to the fort
Shadowcaller säger:
You leave Cerons Keep and travle along the little river going towards the mountains.
Aegnor säger:
so if they don't want to live there…
Shadowcaller säger:
Eventually, you come to a clearer part of the forest.
There are ruins here, mostly collapsed ones.
Derek can see signs on the ruins, demonic ones. These haven't been used for hundreds of years most likely thought.
Aegnor säger:
'And we wait, I suppose.'
Shadowcaller säger:
It dosen't take long. "Ferlden send you didn't he?" You can hear a female voice
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Did he?" Hector asks, looking at Derek.
Aegnor säger:
'Told me where to find you, but didn't send me.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Turning around, you can see a woman dressed in dark leather armor and a green cloak she holds tighthly against her body.
She have dark hair as well as quite dark skin, she dosen't look like she's around here.
"So be betrayed me… who are you supposed to be then?"
"Assassins?"
Aegnor säger:
'I was sent, as you called it, by the ithari.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"The Ithari? You think I'm a demon? A cultist?"
Aegnor säger:
'No, but if we're correct you have the power to blink.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You suck at explaining things," Hector mutters to Derek.
Aegnor säger:
He smiles brightly at Hector. 'Oh, but it's fun.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna frowns "You haven't killed me yet so out with it."
She glances at Wren, "You aren't all ithari are you?"
Elly säger:
"Only him."
Aegnor säger:
'We aren't going to kill you. Hopefully. What do you know about why you have the power?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Ignore him. We /aren't/ going to kill you. There's no hopefully in there."
Aegnor säger:
'Hey, I'm not going to surrender if she attacks.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"She's not attacking, and there's no need for her, or us, to engage in combat. Besides, even if you screw this up enough to make her attack us, surely you've heard of knocking people out?"
Aegnor säger:
'If she attacks us, I'm going to kill her. Why would we ever knock her out?'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna raises an eyebrow, but dosen't say anything, she appears a bit suprised.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Why would you kill her?" Hector sighs and turns to Luna, "Look, we have no intention of killing you, nor do we think you're a demon. You, like us, though, have gained powers that once belonged to a demon."
Aegnor säger:
'Who wants them back.'
'Which it does by killing you.'
'Which is, by the way, exactly why we would kill you.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No! No it isn't! We're not killing her! EVER!"
Shadowcaller säger:
She gives Hector a firm look as to see if he tells the truth or not and then she turns and looks at Derek. "I see, a bit different from my fathers version."
Aegnor säger:
Derek looks at Hector again. 'What are you, in love?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No, I'm just not a murderer. We have no reason to kill her."
Aegnor säger:
'Unless she attacks us, in which case we have plenty.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No, even then we have no reason to kill her. Besides, your talk of killing her isn't exactly helping!"
Shadowcaller säger:
"He's right you know…"
Aegnor säger:
'If she attacks us then that means she wants to help the demon.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No, it means she's convinced that you're crazy and dangerous."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Maybe I should leave so you can talk this out on your own?"
Aegnor säger:
'Maybe that too.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I'm starting to think that as well, to be honest."
Aegnor säger:
'But if she's convinced I'm crazy and dangerous then she's an enemy aswell.'
'Why are we even talking about this?'
'Hey, Luna. Are you going to attack me?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No, she is not an enemy! Your argument makes no sense."
Shadowcaller säger:
"You are a very wierd man."
"You are both very wierd."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Hey, I'm trying to defend you from the nutcase over here!"
Aegnor säger:
'Hey, it was a fair question.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"But no, I am not going to attack you, I haven't killed anyone yet, if thats what your here for."
Aegnor säger:
'Okay, good. See?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You can ask the workers themselves."
Aegnor säger:
'No need to do anything to her.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"The reason we're here is because the demon will come after you at some point. Our only real chance for a peaceful life is to kill him."
Aegnor säger:
'Or go live a peaceful, though short, life.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Right… so your saying I need to come with you so I can kill some demon that is going to kill me if I don't kill him… or something like that?" She speaks in a perfectly neutral, calm voice.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You don't need to, but it's your best chance of having a long demon-free life."
Aegnor säger:
'Hmm. Technically I'm not all that sure it's the best chance. But anyway, a good opportunity if you're the type to want to actually have a hand in how your own life goes.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna crosses her hands across her chest and leans her head to the side a bit "Any reason I should belive this?"
Aegnor säger:
'Any reason not to?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You've given her plenty of reasons not to, you idiot."
Aegnor säger:
'Why? All I've said is the truth, unlike you.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"There is no reason I shouldn't belive you, but then again, there is a lot of reasons I wouldn't want to come with you if what you say is untrue."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I've only spoken the truth. We are not killing her."
Aegnor säger:
'At the moment in time where you claimed we wouldn't kill her in any circumstances there was at least one of us, me, who could envision a set of circumstances where such a course of action would be undertaken.'
Elly säger:
Wren stares at the other two, and sighs, "How about we leave the boys," She shoots them a vemonous glance, "Here to squabble, and we go talk?"
Aegnor säger:
'Okay, that's one good reason to not come. Listening to this might get you a headache. Then again, having a thrice-damned army of demons jumping on your head not only once but TWICE during the same morning also does that.'
(finally Wren does something)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
( You seemed to be having fun without me. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hector sighs and gives up. "You know what, do what you want to. I'm not going to try and persuade you while he's around." He walks back over to Wren and falls silent.
Well, not true, he smiles at Wren, "Thanks for persuading me to shut up."
Shadowcaller säger:
(Hehe, they do talk a lot) "So, where are you going then? Is the demon in this forest maybe?" Luna smiles slightly
Elly säger:
She smiles lightly at Hector, and brushes past him, "We're finding the others, first."
Aegnor säger:
'It's a Demon Sultan, so it's in it's own fortress.'
'But we're trying to gather at least most of those with powers who are still alive despite the demon attacks so we actually have a chance.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"So your gatheing an army of freaks?"
"A wandering circus…"
Aegnor säger:
'That's a pretty great way of putting it.'
Shadowcaller säger:
*gathering
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Hey, it's an army of freaks or a lifetime of running. I've already been stabbed in the shoulders and set on fire. I'd rather take my chances and try to kill the demon than have to keep fighting for my life."
Aegnor säger:
'I already know I'll be fighting the rest of my admittedly probably rather short life so I don't really mind.' He smiles again.
Shadowcaller säger:
"You are all a bit crazy, aren't you?"
Aegnor säger:
'I am. I'm not sure about Wren.'
'Hector is, for sure.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"What? Hey! I try to persuade him not to kill you and I'm labelled crazy?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"Charming, I appear to attract your kind."
Aegnor säger:
'Maybe it's because you're also a bit crazy?'
'I mean, who'd risk his life killing some of the strongest beings that exist just to save a bunch of peasants if he wasn't a bit crazy.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Well, you are in the company of a crazy man aren't you?"
"Hector?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I…after hearing what he's said just a few moments ago, I'm wondering if it was worth agreeing to go with him at all. Besides, I'm not risking my life just to save a bunch of peasants…"
Aegnor säger:
'Wasn't talking about you.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"And? I'm just making it clear that I'm not after the demon just to save peasants, even if you are."
Aegnor säger:
He looks about to say something, then stops. 'Eh, whatever.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna grins "I have a few things to handle, but I might meet up with you later on, I will let it go with the wind…"
Aegnor säger:
Then he turns to Luna again. 'Well, a warning at least. The other side is going to hunt you down easily if even we are here. Be careful and don't die.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"So much I have understood. Good bye for now, we might see each other again if it turns out you told me the truth."
Luna turns away and the very next moment she's gone.
Aegnor säger:
'Next stop, telepathy.'

Happy har lämnat konversationen.

Aegnor säger:
'Also in this forest but we'd best return to the road so I have an idea on where we are.'
He mutters something before turning and heading back the way they came.
Elly säger:
Wren glances at Hector, then follows after Derek, "Well… that didn't go so well."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yeah, I'm sorry about that, Wren. Next time, I'll just let him handle it. Trying to make him see sense only made things worse."
Aegnor säger:
'I'd say it went just about as well as it could have gone.'
Elly säger:
She laughs softly, "Sense. We're going after a demon lord… king… thing. And you want to make sense?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Hey, we're going after it because we don't want to die. That makes sense to me." Hector replies, laughing.
Aegnor säger:
'Don't ask for sense from a guy who works with the organization whose main tactic is to look so incompetent the demons attack us and get killed.'
He sounds somehow triumphant.
Shadowcaller säger:
You return to the poorly maintained road again, Wind Pine shouldn't be far from here.
It's late when you reach the village that is nothing more then a few houses in the outskirts of the mighty forest.
Hector can't shake off the feeling that there is something following them.
That is until they reach the village, the inn there looks welcoming enough for your tired behinds. Riding isn't easy on this road.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Wren…Derek…I'm not happy about this. Something doesn't feel right." Hector looks over his shoulder, frowning.
Elly säger:
"What doesn't feel right?" She turns around on the horse, trying to figure out what he's looking for, but soon gives up on it. "Well… you keep watching, but I don't see anything."
Aegnor säger:
He looks around. 'What?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yeah, I know, I can't see anything either, but…" Hector sighs and faces forwards once more, "Something just doesn't feel right."
Aegnor säger:
'I don't like that kinds of feelings. Got too many people killed. Can you go get me a room aswell?'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"What? Why can't you get yourself a room? Do you plan on threatening to kill the bartender as well?"
Elly säger:
Wren just looks around for the innkeeper, "A room, please!" She calls, after spotting him.

Aegnor säger:
I assume they go to the inn then
Elly säger:
<.<
Shadowcaller säger:
"Will be mam, just for 10 silver."
Aegnor säger:
Derek leaves the horse to them and goes into the inn, then out. Prefarably another door but the same if there isn't one.
Elly säger:
She counts out the coins and hands them to the innkeeper before looking over her shoulder at Derek, and commenting, "You're sharing the room with us."
Shadowcaller säger:
The inn-keeper nods and gives them a key "Number 4, don't lose it."
Elly säger:
"Never." She smiles, and heads off to find said room.
Aegnor säger:
'Right. Back in a bit.' He is gone.
Shadowcaller säger:
(I assum thats Murskas good night.)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hector looks like he might object for a moment before nodding, sighing and following Wren. "Good call, spineless. I'll feel a little happier if we're all together anyway. Something just…feels off."
Shadowcaller säger:
*assume
Elly säger:
( Or is it a solo adventure? )
Shadowcaller säger:
(No idea)
Aegnor säger:
Derek attempts to not be seen, but assumes he is seen and followed. He goes a bit back to look around for any traces of someone pursuing them, particularly glowing silver.
Shadowcaller säger:
(I assume the others enter their room?)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Yup)
Shadowcaller säger:
(It's nice kept for such a small village.)
(Three beds.)
(A window.)
Elly säger:
Wren heads straight to bed, exausted from riding around, lying down in the middle bed and stretching out under the blankets. "Another long day." She yawns.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hector looks at the three beds, shakes his head, and smiles at Wren. "Well, that won't do. Here, give me a hand pushing two of these together…and remind me to leave a tip when we leave."
Elly säger:

Shadowcaller säger:
The silver dosen't react, but he can see traces of something thats not an animal just some distance away from the road.
Elly säger:
She rolls back off the bed tiredly, helping Hector push two beds together, then looks at the third. "Do you want to keep them all together?"
Shadowcaller säger:
Footsteps, broken twigs and so on.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"No no, I'm not sharing with the murderer. This way you can just curl up next to me if you get cold."
"Go on, get some sleep, I'll keep an eye out until he gets back."
Aegnor säger:
He follows the traces, fully expecting to be ambushed.
Elly säger:
She stares at him idly, "Hector. That's unfair to call him a murderer." She stays sitting up in the bed, "He might be a lot less caring about other lives, but he wants to kill the demon as much, if not more than us. For reasons other than survival."
Shadowcaller säger:
Derek walks on as he can hear something pass nearby, the silver isn't glowing.
Aegnor säger:
(Less caring? He's spent his whole life killing demons to save people.)
Follow the sounds!
Elly säger:
( You threatened to kill the other fellow they just met. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I-yeah, you're right. I'm sorry. I just don't feel relaxed at the moment, and seeming so willing to kill her…imagine if that had been you there!"
Elly säger:
( Sort of. )
Aegnor säger:
(Hey, I never threatened to kill her)
(I just said I would if she attacked. )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Yes, yes you did. You openly stated that you "hopefully" wouldn't kill her. Then you made it clearer what you meant. However, hopefully not killing someone is still a threat. )
Elly säger:
"But I wasn't. And besides, by the look of what she could do, he wouldn't have been able to, anyway." She gets off the bed, "We're putting the three of them together. And if you don't want to sleep near him, then I'll stay between you two."
Aegnor säger:
(Saying 'I won't kill you' is lying. He wouldn't do that.)
Elly säger:
"Besides, if he's alone over there, it'll be harder for us to help him, or vice versa."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Aww, but Wren…" Hector protests feebly, "He's only just over there…"
Elly säger:
"And you sleep like a log!"
Shadowcaller säger:
Follwing the sounds Derek can just see something green slip behind a large tree.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Mmmbut you can wake me up easily enough. At least I don't snore like you!"
Aegnor säger:
He keeps following.
Sword out.
Elly säger:
She frowns at him, "I don't snore!" She whines, then goes and tries to push the third bed herself, anyway.
Shadowcaller säger:
"Stop… I'm not going to fight you!" It's Luna's voice.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You do too!" Hector chuckles as he pushes the third bed across. "It's alright, I can get to sleep with people snoring."
Shadowcaller säger:
"…I just kept track on you, thats all."
Aegnor säger:
'Oh, good.' He relaxes slightly, 'coincidentally' takes a single step so his back is against a tree and puts his sword back into the sheath, again 'coincidentally' keeping the hand on it.
'You do that pretty well.'
Elly säger:
She pecks him on the cheek as the beds clunk togther, then sets about stretching the blankets across to make it look like one bigger bed. "I wonder where he got off to, anyway…"
Shadowcaller säger:
"I live in this forest, what do you expect?"
Aegnor säger:
'Good point. I guess I got you curious?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I simply wanted to see if you told the truth or not…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I have no idea, but I'm sure he'll be fine. He's the one who's actually part of the ithari, after all."
Elly säger:
Wren nods, and climbs into the middle of the bed, stretching out again. "Well…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hector climbs into the left of the bed, wriggling across so he's up close to Wren. "Well?"
Aegnor säger:
'Well, yes I did. There should be another one of us 'children' in this village, with the power of telepathy.'
Elly säger:
She smiles, and gives Hector another quick peck, "Aren't you staying up and waiting for him?"
Aegnor säger:
'Honestly speaking, I don't expect us to stand much of a chance against that demon. But it's attacking civilians with no restraint, and I have to try and take it out.'
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yes, I am. But I can snuggle up next to you and stay awake at the same time."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Your Ithari… I assumed that was what you did."
Aegnor säger:
'Yeah. The order is getting a bit desperate, though, and I don't like it at all.'
'Things aren't much worse than they have always been for us, but I work to help people, and that's what we can do. We can take out demons, insane ones who hurt people. We're woefully underequipped and we cannot wage war against demon armies. If that happens, we are there to provide experience and training to an army of normal soldiers.
Shadowcaller säger:
"Why are you telling me all this exactly?"
Aegnor säger:
'But I don't want to see the Order sink to the level of the enemy out of desperation to do something real.'
'Because you are important.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"…I just got a trick, thats all."
Aegnor säger:
'That's all any of us can hope for. But you, you also have a chance to do something real. Maybe for the first time ever.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Hey, I defend these woods, thats real, thats something."
"You might not care much about what happends here, but me and some others do."
Aegnor säger:
'That's the thought that has kept me going. I can save a life, it's something good I can do. But that isn't my point.'
'You can protect the forest, yes.'
'But wouldn't you like to be able to stop the forest from being attacked?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Why would demons attack the forest?"
Aegnor säger:
'Don't take me that literally.' He smiles again, sadly.
Shadowcaller säger:
(She can't see you)
(And do you need me for anything shrimp?)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Oh damn, I forgot something." Hector carefully rolls out of bed, trying to avoid disturbing Wren. He grabs his bow and quiver and moves them so they're resting against the edge of the bed, and places his knife under his pillow, then rolls back into bed.
(Nope, just making it clear that Hector's stuffs is all within easy reach.)
Aegnor säger:
'To this date, humankind has never been able to rise up from being a pawn in the games of the demons. We can kill demons, but we can't even hurt Demons. If it goes like that, our fates will be directed by whoever wins.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You start to sound like my father… it's creepy."
Aegnor säger:
He laughs. 'I'm getting old. Maybe I should be crazy again instead.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yeah, or threatening to kill me, that also works."
Aegnor säger:
'Good to hear, I thought it was worth a try.' 'though I still don't see how it was a threat of killing rather than an implied threat of capability of defense' /last part muttered just loud enough for her to hear
Shadowcaller säger:
"Why are you alone?" Suddenly the voice comes from another direction.
(in front of you in fact.)
Aegnor säger:
'Maybe they don't need to see me not being crazy?'
'I might upset their view of the world.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna is now some meters in front of you, she get a knife ready in her left hand and a bow straped on her back "You carry the knowledge they can not comprehend then? Arrogance."
Aegnor säger:
He laughs again. 'Not really. I just don't trust them.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Thats an healthy attitude."
Aegnor säger:
'I'm still alive.'
Shadowcaller säger:
(Nope, no irony here.)
(She wasn't sarcastic that is.)
Aegnor säger:
Derek tries to recall how her voice sounded when she said the captain in the fort had betrayed her.
Shadowcaller säger:
It was a hint of anger in the voice, but she didn't sound too suprised.
*in her
"I'm still alive as well, and thats the reason I just didn't go with your mad scheme."
Aegnor säger:
'So, considering it's you who followed us, do you have something to say? I didn't have time to get a drink and I'm not /that/ talkative by nature.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I didn't plan to talk to you, I was just checking your story out. I did say we might meet again."
Aegnor säger:
'What did you expect to find out, then?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I don't know… demons?"
Aegnor säger:
(What was it that glowed again? Some sort of a wrist thing?)
Shadowcaller säger:
(yeah, or you can make it whatever you think would be the bast location for it.)
*best
Aegnor säger:
He raises his wrist. 'None as far as I can see.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You did say demons were going to follow you."
Aegnor säger:
'Or you. We were last attacked by a couple pit fiends and killed them so their next attack might take a while.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I have heard of demons, and it sounds like something I could spot miles away."
"I know every part of this forest, they won't find me here unless I like to."
Aegnor säger:
'Even if they look just like your best friend after stabbing him or her through the heart while invisible earlier?'
'If you have one, that is.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I have plenty of friends… I'm not a lone wolf."
Aegnor säger:
'Or I could be a demon. If I were, you'd be dead and I'd have another ability to add to my own.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Wait? You would steal my trick?"
Aegnor säger:
'If you die, it passes on to the closest of the 'children'.
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna points at you, looking doubtful "And… your a 'children'?"
Aegnor säger:
'If you want proof, hold that dagger towards me.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna raises an eyebrow, not sure what to belive "You got a trick?" She holds out the dagger and then takes out another one from her belt.
Aegnor säger:
He reaches for the dagger with one finger extended, a bit past it's blade and touches her finger, locking her wrist in place in the air.
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna withdraws the blade as soon as he raises his hand "What are you going to do?"
Aegnor säger:
'Show you the trick. The dagger won't be harmed.'
'Or you for that matter.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Right, and you just told me you could be a demon her to kill me…"
"And then that it was good to not trust anyone?"
Aegnor säger:
He shrugs and withdraws his arm. 'All right then.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You are giving me very mixed signals here hunter."
Aegnor säger:
'Well, either you'll need to trust my word for having a trick or receive proof by trusting that I can't kill you with a single finger from this distance.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"What exactly will you do with your finger then? Why do you need my blade for it?"
Aegnor säger:
'I need to touch something.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Touch your own blade."
Aegnor säger:
'I am, if you haven't noticed. But that doesn't really work.' He smirks. 'The trust issue again, see.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Mind explaining what your power is? Or do you need to be dramatic about it?"
Aegnor säger:
'I guess I have a dramatic streak.'
'Well, toss me the dagger? You have more.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Fine, but I want it back." She tosses him the dagger she hold in her left hand.
Aegnor säger:
He grabs it in midair… and then lets go. The dagger hangs in the air.
'You can try taking it now.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna looks first at him and then at the dagger "…what did you do to it?"
Aegnor säger:
'Well isn't it obvious?' He smiles.
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna still looks as suspicious as ever "It looks like you stopped it in mid air."
Aegnor säger:
'Very observant.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Can you make it drop as well? Or is it stuck there+"
?
Aegnor säger:
'I can let it go, but I doubt you'd be able to make it move if I don't.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Step back then."
Aegnor säger:
He glances at the tree behind him and steps to it's side.
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna slowly approaches the flying dagger and gets a grip on it, trying to take it down.
It dosen't work.
Aegnor säger:
'There's one thing I'm curious about…'
'You can blink with equipment, as I've witnessed. What happens if you try to move that dagger?'
Shadowcaller säger:
She lets go of it and keeps her eyes on him again, watching his every move.
"While I do my trick?"
Aegnor säger:
'Yeah, with it.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Not sure I want to experiment…"
Aegnor säger:
'Oh well.'
'There's another interesting application…'
He takes a step back and puts a hand on the tree in clear sight, then withdrawing it. 'Want to try to move this tree?'
Since he's now a bit behind the tree from her viewpoint she shouldn't be able to see his foot touch it.
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna sigh "Oh no, I have tried that, it dosen't work."
Aegnor säger:
'Just with physical strength.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Why do you need me to do it? Don't you have two,, whatever they are to you."
Aegnor säger:
'Hey, you've demonstrated your trick.'
He lets the dagger drop.
Shadowcaller säger:
"And so did you, we are even." Luna puts her foot on the dagger and quickly drags it back to her
Aegnor säger:
He shrugs again. 'You're admittedly less curious than I imagined. Anyway, if you don't care about the demon I'd like to get to the inn to sleep. Be careful and we might see later.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Hey… we could try if you want."
Aegnor säger:
'Try what?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Well… whatever experiment you intended."
Aegnor säger:
'Moving the dagger with blink? I have no idea what will happen, though.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"I bet it will stay there. Seems plasuible."
Aegnor säger:
'It might. But that's what's so interesting about experimenting. Maybe it'll move. Maybe it'll tear, maybe it'll move but be stuck in place at the new location. Maybe it will explode.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"…yeah, reasons I don't want to be the rat."
Aegnor säger:
'You'll die eventually anyway. Unless you happen to be near when the child with immortality dies.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna looks like she just realized something. "…right, so I can gain new tricks as well?"
Aegnor säger:
'Why, want to kill me now for it?'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna smiles sligthly and puts her dagger back in her belt "Not really no."
"Just something I realized."
Aegnor säger:
'I could demonstrate another aspect of mine if you are curious after all.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna shrugs "Sure, what is it?"
Aegnor säger:
He touches the tree again with his hand. 'Try and push this tree a bit. Not too hard.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Luna approaches the tree and gives it a light shove with her right hand, keeping her left hand on one of her knives.
Aegnor säger:
He traps her right hand's wrist as she touches the tree, just for long enough for her to feel it's trapped. Then he lets go. 'It travels through things.'
Shadowcaller säger:
For a moment it looks like she's about to panic, but as he let's go she quickly calms down but still takes a few steps backwards while massaging her right wrist whith her left hand "That was… unessecary." She says after a while.
Aegnor säger:
'I guess I had an urge.' He smiles slightly. 'I hope if you think about it rationally you can discount me being a demon now. But I need to get going.'
'I wish we will meet again.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Perhaps we will…" Luna lingers a while, metting his eyes but then turns around and suddenly dissapears again.
Aegnor säger:
'Good luck.' He says loudly, knowing that the blink can't take her very far in this place since it has a line of sight requirement.
Then he turns and heads back to the inn.
