Kyou 12

S19:12] Happy: I guess it's back to the first watch, with Cessie and Aegnor the only one awake
[19:13] Murska: And Aegnor just having hugged Cessie and said 'Right here.', IIRC
[19:18] Shadowcaller: She hugs back, you can feel the heat around you rise a bit, "It is a bit chilly out here…"
[19:21] Shadowcaller: You can feel her body thightly pressing against yours, and the unusal warmth its generating
[19:21] Murska: (read the Kuori scene)
[19:22] Shadowcaller: *warmth
[19:23] Murska: (hmm. So her body's unusually warm, but she's feeling cold? )
[19:23] Shadowcaller: (Well, she did make something to remove the cold.)
[19:23] Happy: (magic)
[19:23] Murska: (Heh. Better than a fever.)
[19:24] Murska: 'We can keep each other warm.'
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "Shh… let me do my magic." (for real!)
[19:25] Happy: (Link:
[19:26] Murska: Aegnor holds her close, she can feel him breathe steadily.
[19:28] Happy: (bummer. we have to bid for powers before we have teammates)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: She breaks off a bit for a moment or two and lies down on the sleeping bag… (I hope no woards are needed:P)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: *words
[19:30] Murska: Although this isn't exactly the kind of situation Aegnor got into the habit of using animal sentries for, without them, he'd certainly be a poor guard. :P
[19:31] Shadowcaller: (Oh right, there are no animals in this forest.)
[19:31] Murska: (Right. That could've been mentioned. :P)
[19:31] Shadowcaller: (I guess insects counts as animals thought… but you can't control them)
[19:31] Murska: (Back when I went to play music to find any.)
[19:32] Murska: (Well, then, I guess he's just a poor guard. :P)
[19:32] Happy: (yup)
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (So if we get eaten alive… we know who to blame (yes, there is more then one person to blame here.))
[19:33] Murska: (Well, he'd probably have taken the spyglass if I'd have known there are no animals answering his call.)
[19:34] Happy: (Simone would have given it back to him then)
[19:34] Murska: (And he'd have noticed it shaking lightly all the time.)
[19:35] Shadowcaller: Some point during the "act"… "Wait…do you smell something?"
[19:36] Murska: (Oo :P)
[19:36] Murska: (does he?)
[19:36] Shadowcaller: (he dose, it smells like smoke.)
[19:37] Murska: 'Smoke…' Aegnor looks around. (I guess this is the 'snuggling' phase since they probably wouldn't notice anything otherwise.)
[19:37] Shadowcaller: (indeed it is.)
[19:38] Shadowcaller: It seems like some underbrush close to you have caught fire
[19:39] Murska: Is the spyglass shaking more than before?
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (it is not.)
[19:39] Murska: Aegnor gets up and tries to find the source of the smoke.
[19:39] Happy: (Hey! Hope is careful with her fires!)
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (err.. the fire?)
[19:39] Murska: (This being that dark forest, there wouldn't be much underbrush)
[19:39] Wolfbane: (And you are letting us sleep?)
[19:39] Murska: (Yeah, where is the fire)
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (The underbrush, you can see it since its really close to you.)
[19:40] Murska: (Right.)
[19:40] Murska: Aegnor starts putting it out. 'Fire!'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (And the fire was started by Cessies magical heat
[19:40] Murska: (Oh. :P)
[19:41] Happy: Hope is instantly awake
[19:41] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, it was just that "hot".)
[19:41] Wolfbane: Promise wakes up at the shout and looks around.
[19:42] Happy: *throws water on the fire*
[19:42] Shadowcaller: Cessie lets the shadows surround her and summons some water to put out the sfire
[19:42] Shadowcaller: *fire
[19:42] Murska: (I shall have to brb at this point for a while. I need to eat breakfast, shower and do all the other morning stuff people do once they wake up.)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: (Its hardly morning anymore…)
[19:43] Wolfbane: (But it is 941 PM for you, isn't it?)
[19:43] Murska: (I still just woke up :P)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: (21.43 if you use our crazy clock.)
[19:44] Wolfbane: Promise also tries to put out the fire.
[19:44] Shadowcaller: In the chaos Cessie also make illusionary clothes
[19:45] Shadowcaller: The fire is soon put out
[19:47] Happy: Simone wakes as well, but stays out of the way.
[19:47] Happy: "Is anyone hurt?" Hope asks.
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Um… no."
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "It was only a small fire…" (Aegnor must still be naked at this point, but we let him do that.)
[19:48] Wolfbane: "I'm not even though my fur may be a little singed."
[19:48] Happy: (Cessie doesn't make illusionary clothes for him too?)
[19:48] Happy: Hope checks the camp fire to make sure it's not spreading sparks.
[19:49] * moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes has left the conversation.
[19:49] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[19:49] Happy: [19:48] Wolfbane: "I'm not even though my fur may be a little singed."
[19:48] Happy: (Cessie doesn't make illusionary clothes for him too?)
[19:48] Happy: Hope checks the camp fire to make sure it's not spreading sparks.
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (I pressed play on a video on youtube and "run-time error…")
[19:50] Shadowcaller: (I thought the illusions were limited to her?)
[19:50] Happy: (no, she's made illusory enemies before, remember?)
[19:50] Happy: (and the illusory Cessie)
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (Well yes, but change the apperance of someone is different.)
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (And easily abusable.)
[19:52] Wolfbane: (She wouldn't make clothes for him?)
[19:52] Shadowcaller: (Of course she would.)
[19:52] Happy: (Bah. It's not like Hope will care. But Cessie would be mortified.)
[19:53] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[19:54] Happy: In any event, Promise and Hope will soon return to their sleeping bag.
[19:54] Happy: Simone does as well, but like before, has trouble sleeping.
[19:54] Shadowcaller: Promise might be able to feel a presence, and so will Aegnor
[19:55] Wolfbane: The fur on Promise's neck stands up slightly. He looks around.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: A howl can be heard from the depths of the Yokai forest
[19:56] Shadowcaller: The spyglas starts shaking like possessed
[19:56] Murska: (Aegnor'll check the spyglass once again, and he'd have wrapped his cloak around himself to prevent the cold, although he has no qualms about being naked.)
[19:57] Happy: Hope leaps to her feet, grabbing her sword.
[19:57] Murska: 'Enemies! This is one restless night.'
[19:57] Wolfbane: (Is Promise able to recognize if it is hunting or calling out?)
[19:57] Happy: Simone grabs her knife and hides in the shadows.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: (Hunting.)
[19:57] Murska: Aegnor gathers his equipment quickly.
[19:58] Wolfbane: Promise grabs his spear. "They are hunting. Hopefully not for us."
[19:58] Murska: 'What else is there?'
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Aegnor and Promise can feel the presence grow stronger
[19:59] Happy: "Simone! Stay with us!"
[19:59] Murska: 'Incoming!'
[19:59] Murska: (:P)
[19:59] Shadowcaller: But yet the forest is perfectly quiet
[19:59] Murska: Aegnor looks around with the spyglass in one hand and a sword in another.
[19:59] Wolfbane: (Is our fire still going?)
[19:59] Happy: (not the knife?)
[19:59] Murska: (looking with the spyglass)
[19:59] Happy: (our fire is, yes)
[20:00] Shadowcaller: The presence changes direction.. again and again
[20:00] Murska: (And no, the knife wasn't the closest weapon for him to pick up. He's got it on now and can take it our quickly.)
[20:00] Murska: (out*)
[20:00] Wolfbane: Promise howls loudly.
[20:00] Happy: Simone returns from the shadows and tries to get in the center of the party.
[20:01] Murska: Aegnor positions himself so his back is against a tree.
[20:01] Shadowcaller: After a few moments can Promise and Aegnor feel that there is something circeling you, just outside the fire edge
[20:01] Shadowcaller: (line of sight
[20:01] Shadowcaller: )
[20:01] Murska: (The Ultimate EVIL)
[20:01] Murska: (OMG)
[20:02] Shadowcaller: (You read to much TV tropes:P)
[20:02] Wolfbane: "It is close."
[20:02] Shadowcaller: *too
[20:02] Murska: (Hey, that was from the game)
[20:02] Murska: (Not the tropes)
[20:02] Murska: (Spathi)
[20:02] Happy: Hope stands back to back with Promise
[20:03] Murska: (Nobody got the reference? Pfft.)
[20:03] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[20:03] Murska: (The Ur-Quan Masters)
[20:03] Shadowcaller: (Never played the game, but I heard about those.)
[20:04] Shadowcaller: You can hear another chilling howl coming all to close
[20:04] Murska: (Also called Star Control 2. Or, to help with all the 'SC's out there, *ctrl2)
[20:04] Happy: Simone grabs a stick from the fire that's burning on one end. She looks terrified.
[20:04] Happy: (where is Cessie?)
[20:05] Murska: (Food incoming, brb)
[20:05] Murska: (haven't eaten in 28 hours)
[20:05] Shadowcaller: She is picking up some clothes, while looking around time for time
[20:07] Shadowcaller: /Go back./ Promise and Aegnor sudenly can hear a growling voice in their head.
[20:07] Wolfbane: /Go back where? We only wish to pass through./
[20:08] Shadowcaller: /Go back to humans or die./
[20:08] Happy: Simone is too frightened to think of calling Myubi for help, but he might feel her fear.
[20:09] Wolfbane: /We are going to other humans. We do not want to harm you./
[20:10] Shadowcaller: /You are not taking another step inside this forest, go back./
[20:10] Wolfbane: /Why do you want to turn us back?/
[20:10] Shadowcaller: /If you would not be my soul-kin you all would be dead by now, go back./
[20:11] Wolfbane: /Soul-kin?/
[20:11] Shadowcaller: /I am sworn to protect your kin, now turn back./
[20:12] Wolfbane: /I do not understand. Why are you sworn to protect us and why do you want us to turn back?/
[20:12] Shadowcaller: /I protect your kin right now, turn back./
[20:13] Wolfbane: Promise lowers his spear slightly. /There are Wolfen here?/
[20:13] Wolfbane: /Or just other peoples?/
[20:13] Shadowcaller: /Your kin is here, they are safe, now turn back./
[20:14] Murska: /We have to end the spirits' attacks on mortals. Why do you seek to stop us?/
[20:14] Wolfbane: /We do not wish to harm anyone here. All we want is to go through the forest./
[20:15] Shadowcaller: /I seek to protect the your kin from humans./
[20:16] Shadowcaller: /Turn back, I do not wish to harm my soul kin./
[20:16] Shadowcaller: *-the
[20:17] Wolfbane: /We won't hurt those under your protection. We shall keep them secret from the other humans. We would never betray any trust given to us./
[20:17] Shadowcaller: /You do not understand, I will not let anyone enter./
[20:18] Murska: /The Legion would hurt them./
[20:18] Shadowcaller: /It would not./
[20:18] Shadowcaller: The voice seems sure of that
[20:18] Murska: Aegnor takes note of this, and it knowing of it.
[20:18] Wolfbane: /Why not? Because they are not in the city? That won't stop it./
[20:19] Happy: (is Hope's prey sense anywhere near here?)
[20:19] Murska: /Maybe the one creating it thinks it can be controlled./
[20:19] Shadowcaller: /It only feeds on one kind, not on others./
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[20:19] Wolfbane: /What kind does it feed on?/
[20:19] Murska: /The one we defeated a while ago was turning from elves to humans./
[20:20] Murska: /What's to prevent this one from switching, too?/
[20:20] Shadowcaller: /Humans, and I have been told the opposite, word against word./
[20:21] Murska: /Told by whom?/
[20:21] Wolfbane: /What happens when you run out of one food source? You switch to another. As soon as there are no humans, they will attack you./
[20:21] Shadowcaller: /It can be killed, once it has served its purpose./
[20:22] Shadowcaller: /Names do not matter, what matters is that you will turn back…NOW!/
[20:25] Murska: Aegnor calls to Iname. /Greetings./
[20:26] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "Greetsings Speaker./
[20:26] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "You have returned? What do you want?"/
[20:26] Shadowcaller: *greetings
[20:26] Murska: /Do you know anything of what is happening in and near Kyou?/
[20:26] Murska: (:P)
[20:27] Murska: ('How much do you know', implies the tone)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "The gate, great things happend, a risen one is born."/
[20:28] Happy: O.O
[20:28] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "A new start… and a new end.. soon."/
[20:29] Murska: /We would need to travel through Yokai forest, but a spirit is stopping us./
[20:30] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "A great end is coming… why should we help you?"/
[20:30] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "It is unatural, the beginning too, we can not allowe this to happend."/
[20:31] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "All things come to an end, and old things rises donät they?"/
[20:31] Shadowcaller: *don't
[20:31] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "It can not end in this way…"/
[20:31] Murska: /All things also struggle to survive for as long as they can./
[20:32] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice: /I will kill the humans then…/
[20:33] Murska: Aegnor next contacts Kowa-Tengu. /We managed to get into trouble again./ To the wolf: /Don't!/
[20:33] Murska: Three simultaneous conversations are draining his concentration.
[20:33] Wolfbane: /You do and you will have broken your promise./
[20:33] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "What should we do then speaker? We can not agree./
[20:34] Wolfbane: /You do not wish to do that, do you?/
[20:34] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice: /The humans are oni! They do not deserve my protection!/
[20:35] Shadowcaller: Kowa-Tengu: /There is a great will here… something do not wish that I should aid you./
[20:35] Wolfbane: /But one is my mate and the others are in her tribe! That protection is extended through that! And if you break that, you would be called Oathbreaker./
[20:36] Murska: To Iname: /Grant us safe passage so we can help you learn more/ Wolf: /Do not attack our tribe./ Kowa-Tengu: /We will manage, don't do anything that would leave you at risk./

[20:37] Wolfbane: ((Oathbreaker is one of the worst names to be given))
[20:37] Murska: Anyone focusing on Aegnor would see that he's leaning to the tree and not focusing on anything around him.
[20:37] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice: /…very well,, but you will still not pass./
[20:38] Shadowcaller: Wolf-voice: /I have also sworn to let anyone pass this forest./
[20:38] Murska: (to not let, I guess)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[20:38] Wolfbane: /Are Wolfen kin allowed to pass?/
[20:39] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "We already know what happends, we know all about this forest, it is our home after all."/
[20:40] Shadowcaller: /I have sworn to not let anyone, of any kin pass this forest./
[20:41] Wolfbane: /Then are the Wolfen here prisoners?/
[20:41] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice /They are there on their own free will./
[20:42] Murska: To Iname: /But you do not know how you should respond to it. I cannot help if I do not know./
[20:42] Murska: To wolf: /Free to stay, are they free to leave?/
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice: /Both, they are allowed to stay and leave, I can not prevent anyone from leaving./
[20:42] Happy: Simone sees that Aegnor is blanking, which only frightens her more. Her burning stick quivers in her hand.
[20:43] Shadowcaller: Wolf voice: /Both your kin is there… it will be glorious./
[20:43] Wolfbane: /What do you mean it will be glorious?/
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "Perhaps the speaker is right? We are not sure what to do in such a event."/
[20:44] Murska: /The ends do not justify the means./
[20:44] Murska: (to wolf)
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "Very well speaker, what will you do once you are at the risen ones place?"/
[20:45] Murska: To Iname: /I will try to learn more of the situation and make my decision based on that./
[20:46] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice: /Do you know what the humans did to us…?/
[20:46] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "This is a great evet speaker, are you sure you will be able to understand it fully?"7
[20:47] Murska: Iname: /I cannot know that before getting the chance to see for myself./ Wolf: /I know what a Legion did to my kin, and I know that even if I'd have done the same to the humans who brought it, it wouldn't have made anything better./ His tone is angry.
[20:48] Wolfbane: /Yes. I do. But not all humans are like that. The ones who travel with me are nothing like those. We are trying to stop the bad ones. If they succeed in making a Legion, nothing will stop them from doing worse./
[20:48] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice: /What did it do to your kin elf? Did it kill them?/
[20:49] Murska: /Killed, enslaved, tortured and experimented on… feasted, twisted our homes and destroyed everything we had created./
[20:50] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice: /At least they finally died, the humans did much worse, they took our names from us! Our names!/
[20:51] Shadowcaller: The wolfvoice appears almost lost in rage
[20:52] Murska: /Do you think they let us keep ours? Nobody remembers us anymore, only tales and legends, and all the hopes and dreams of those of us who lived are gone./
[20:53] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice: /Keep names? They took the names and replaced them with their own! I rather be forgotten, dead and buried, they didn't harm us physically, they tore out the wolfen soul… my kin are living dead, hopless living./
[20:53] Shadowcaller: *hopeless
[20:54] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: "We manifest then? It was a while…"/
[20:54] Murska: /And what use would killing all the humans be? Is it the only way for them to regain themselves?/
[20:55] Shadowcaller: /First voice: "Manifest to aid a mortal… perhaps."/
[20:56] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice. /This is not about revenge, it is to regain what we lost, what they took from us, they have looked us in to live with them, like slaves./
[20:56] Shadowcaller: Wolfvoice: /Killing them all will aid my kin!/
[20:56] Shadowcaller: /It will free them from this torrment./
[20:57] Wolfbane: /No. It would not. If you killed the humans, then there would only be Wolfen for the Legion to feed on. You woulld only be killing your kin./
[20:57] Shadowcaller: /I would not kill the mortals kin, the legion would./
[20:58] Murska: /Again, will killing all the humans give your kin back their selves? And, is it really the only way?/
[20:58] Shadowcaller: /Then, once the legion has feed enough, we will all be free…/
[20:59] Wolfbane: /It would still be 'your' fault for letting it happen. The Legion would still kill Wolfen. It can't be fed enough./
[20:59] Murska: /Enough? Ha. A legion will never have fed 'enough'./
[20:59] Shadowcaller: /It is, as long as the humans live, we can not be free, it is the only choice./
[20:59] Murska: (Do Aegnor and Promise even hear each other? :P)
[20:59] Murska: /And this is the only way to kill them, then?/
[20:59] Wolfbane: /You think they can't be free? What do you think I am?/
[21:00] Shadowcaller: /You are far away from here, you know nothing of the crimes commited here./
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (Lets say they do.)
[21:01] Shadowcaller: /I will listen to this no longer, my mind is already made up, I sworn to protect this place, and I will. You shall not pass./
[21:02] Shadowcaller: [/Gandalf]
[21:02] Wolfbane: /To protect this place, you must let us through. What would be left to protect if the Legion killed them? We can stop it!/
[21:03] Shadowcaller: /I do not wish to stop it, it will do as the risen one says it will… be gone./
[21:04] Shadowcaller: Suddenly Aegnor can feel a huge amount of spirit energy released nearby
[21:04] Wolfbane: /What if the risen one is human?/
[21:05] Murska: Aegnor instinctively looks that way.
[21:05] Shadowcaller: /The risen one is not human! We know…/
[21:05] Wolfbane: /How do you know?/
[21:05] Murska: /What makes it think it can control a Legion?/
[21:07] Shadowcaller: /He can, I know, as sure as I know that he is not human./
[21:08] Wolfbane: /Tell us how you are sure. If it has contacted you, then it could have decieved you./
[21:08] Wolfbane: /It could decieve all of us/
[21:08] * moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes has left the conversation.
[21:08] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[21:08] Wolfbane: Wolfbane says (3:07 PM):
/Tell us how you are sure. If it has contacted you, then it could have decieved you./
/It could decieve all of us/

[21:08] Shadowcaller: (I hate visita…)
[21:09] Murska: Aegnor is focusing on the large spirit energy while trying to puzzle together all he has heard.
[21:09] Shadowcaller: /So… you are saying that it could decieve me, but that you are trustworthy?/
[21:10] Wolfbane: /I swear on my name that we are trustworthy./
[21:10] Shadowcaller: /He swore on his name that he wa./
[21:10] Shadowcaller: *was
[21:11] Murska: Aegnor sends a mental version of a sigh. /And maybe you both are. Maybe he is sure he knows how to control one. For all I know, those who created the last one also were./
[21:12] Wolfbane: /If he was not Wolfen, he may not have taken it seriously. I have earned the name Promise because I always take such things seriously./
[21:15] Shadowcaller: /You will not pass… this disscussion is over, I will prevent you from entering the risen ones place./
[21:17] Murska: /Hmm. I wonder if this constitutes a win. Of course, I didn't know enough when we started…/ (What about that huge spirit energy release?)
[21:17] Shadowcaller: (Had trouble finding the image, internety shutting down and so on…)
[21:18] Shadowcaller: The energy is coming from above the trees.
[21:19] Murska: Then Aegnor has been looking that way for a while.
[21:19] Shadowcaller: All other spirits voices fades away
[21:19] Shadowcaller: (hard to see anything due the trees
[21:19] Shadowcaller: )
[21:19] Shadowcaller: The wolf voice also fade away
[21:20] Shadowcaller: Even Hope, Simone and Cessie and feel this
[21:20] Shadowcaller: *can
[21:20] Happy: (They feel that they are safe then?)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (No, they just feel a huge release energy realeased.)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (I would be scared if I were them.)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: /First voice: I am here./
[21:21] Happy: Simone is whimpering, terrified.
[21:22] Wolfbane: Promise looks around to make sure the others are okay.
[21:22] Happy: Hope is able to cope with her fear.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: The branches of the trees lower themselves showing a huge spirit floating above you
[21:23] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[21:24] Happy: Simone backs away, the torch bobbing in her hands.
[21:24] Shadowcaller: /First voice: The other one is resting, where is the one preventing you?/
[21:25] Murska: Aegnor tries to feel the wolf spirit through Iname's energy.
[21:25] Shadowcaller: Its wimpering, afraid of the major kami that just manifested
[21:26] Murska: /That one./ Aegnor points towards it.
[21:26] Murska: ('I am here.' Show-off :P)
[21:26] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: May I end it? I can controll us for a moment…/
[21:26] Happy: "What's happening?" Hope whispers. She still doesn't know if this spirit is friend or foe.
[21:27] Murska: 'Iname.' /Please don't harm it… All we want is a safe passage./
[21:27] Wolfbane: Promise puts a paw on her shoulder. "Something good I think."
[21:27] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Go then, it will not harm you in our presence./
[21:28] Murska: 'Okay, we better get going.'
[21:28] Murska: Aegnor gathers the rest of his stuff quickly.
[21:29] Wolfbane: Promise takes grabs his few things and helps others pack.
[21:29] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still staring at the huge spirit above "…you need to explain all this."
[21:29] Murska: 'This is Iname, and we're being granted a safe passage.'
[21:30] Happy: Simone is staring as well, still stepping backwards, until she trips.
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "And… explain this later, once we have gotten that safe passage."
[21:31] Happy: Hope runs over and scoops up the burning branch before another fire starts. "It's okay. Just get your pack."
[21:31] Happy: Hope puts out the fire, and helps everyone prepare to leave.
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (Cessie have managed to out on clothes during all this time by the way.)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: *on
[21:32] Shadowcaller: *put
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (You leave then?)
[21:33] Happy: (yes)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: You soon lose sight of Iname among the trees, now, where are you going?
[21:35] Murska: I'd assume towards the village in the map?
[21:35] Murska: If that was the way we were heading before we were stopped
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[21:35] Happy: (which direction is Hope's prey, btw?)
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (Same way…)
[21:36] Happy: (Then Hope should have no trouble leading them :S)
[21:37] Shadowcaller: The rest of the journey is without any special events, after almost yet another day of travel you can see the start of civilization
[21:38] Shadowcaller: You can see a clearing, and the signs that you are nearby the village
[21:39] Happy: (animal life?)
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Okay, we are here, mind explaining everything now Aegnor?"
[21:40] Shadowcaller: (you can hear bird song, but not see any animals yet.)
[21:40] Happy: (Surely he'd have explained along the way, right?)
[21:41] Murska: (He would've, I guess.)
[21:41] Shadowcaller: (He never said that he did.)
[21:41] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[21:41] Shadowcaller: "So, this is the village the spirit protected? Should we just go right into the open?"
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "We might want to see what exactly is going on here…"
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "What you told me is *very* confusing."
[21:43] Murska: 'Yeah, I don't see much use staying here.'
[21:43] Murska: I guess they proceed.
[21:43] Shadowcaller: (Proceed with what? Just walking right into the village?)
[21:44] Wolfbane: (Who should scout it out?)
[21:44] Murska: (Aegnor's willing to walk straight in, showing they have no bad intentions)
[21:45] Happy: (What does Promise smell?)
[21:45] Wolfbane: Promise sniffs the air.
[21:45] Wolfbane: :P
[21:46] Shadowcaller: He smells nothing special, smells a bit like Kyou
[21:46] Happy: (Is Hope's prey nearby?)
[21:46] Shadowcaller: (Quite.)
[21:47] Happy: "Either the Legion or the Speaker is here," she tells the others quietly.
[21:47] Wolfbane: "It smells a little like Kyou, should I disguise myself?"
[21:47] Happy: Hope looks surprised. "You don't smell Wolfen?"
[21:48] Wolfbane: (Did he?)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (he did.)
[21:48] Murska: 'I'd rather go with no disguise. I want to know what's going on around here…'
[21:48] Wolfbane: (That would have been nice to know. =P)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (Sorry, just focused on the city smells.)
[21:48] Murska: (I'd think it's something 'special' .:P)
[21:49] Wolfbane: *removes that last part*
"There seem to be Wolfen here, so I won't disguise myself."
[21:49] Murska: 'Well, staying here won't help. What about we just walk in?'
[21:50] Murska: Aegnor checks the spyglass. Is it shaking?
[21:50] Happy: "If you think it's best."
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (its not.)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "We can't just walk right in."
[21:50] Murska: 'What should we do then?'
[21:51] Murska: 'If that spirit from before hasn't let anyone in for a while, they might be quite suprised of us.'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "Scout, we have no idea whats waiting in there."
[21:51] Murska: 'If we do send a scout, he should go invisible. Anyone out-of-place would be noticed.'
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, thats good with me."
[21:52] Wolfbane: "Who should be the scout?"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "Hope? Simone?"
[21:54] Happy: "I can go," Simone says. "Hope not knowing language."
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "Okay, Simone then?" Cessie turns to the others
[21:56] Wolfbane: "Just be careful, okay Simone?"
[21:57] Murska: (SC session in three minutes, you know what that entails.)
[21:58] Happy: Simone nods. "I am ready."
[21:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie casts invisibility upon her, "Just note that it only last a while okay?"
[22:00] Happy: "Yes, ma'am."
[22:00] Happy: Simone creeps into the village.
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "Off you go then.."
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Simone can see a lot of people, most of them dressed in rags on the streets of the small town
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Its no wonder it was called "dirt".
[22:02] Shadowcaller: There is however something special with the inhabitants, many of them are wolfen, and the rest are Aegnors kin
[22:03] Happy: Are there any signs of a principle building? Or are they just huts?
[22:04] Shadowcaller: Where she is, there are only huts, she can't see any larger buildings
[22:05] Happy: She tries to listen in on conversations
[22:05] Shadowcaller: All the villagers appear to be moving toward the center of the town
[22:06] Happy: She moves that way then, trying to make sure not to bump into anyone.
[22:07] Shadowcaller: When she moves further inside she can see that the town is quite heavily populated, or just that all the villagers are here at the same time

[22:08] Happy: If the crowds get too thick, she'll climb onto a roof to get a better view
[22:10] Happy: (SC, you here?)
[22:10] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[22:11] Murska: 'kay
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (… I trully hate my internet.)
[22:11] Happy: [22:08] Happy: If the crowds get too thick, she'll climb onto a roof to get a better view
[22:12] Shadowcaller: Jag säger: She can hear them talk about a prophet and something about a god

Jag säger: She is coming into the center of the village, it will be impossible to avoid the crowd here, she can feel someone bump into her

Jag säger: A elf woman
[22:12] Shadowcaller: (Did you get that?)
[22:13] Murska: (I see it now the first time.)
[22:13] Happy: She uses her crowd maneuvering skills to avoid notice
[22:14] Happy: With so many people, being bumped into shouldn't attract much attention.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: (It don't.)
[22:14] Shadowcaller: In the middle of the village is a huge idol, newly built
[22:15] Shadowcaller: It looks like the traditional image of a wizard, just that its a elf
[22:16] Shadowcaller: Near the idol stands a elf and beside him a huge wolfen
[22:16] Shadowcaller: They seems to be the center of all attention
[22:17] Happy: Do they look like they are about to speak?
[22:17] Shadowcaller: They are
[22:18] Happy: She finds a place where she can listen, but without getting too close
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "Welcome brothers and sisters…" The elf begins.
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "I will now tell you a story of our ancestry."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Long time ago, we elf's and wolfen lived together, much like we do now."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "But we were a grand empire, all the lands were ours or a part of another elven empire."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "In other kingdoms, wolfen were not respected by the elves, but here, we lived side by side."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "However… there was one singel threat, the humans."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Humans are much like rats, wolfen are stronger then them physically, elven are stronger then them mentally, we outmatch them in every way."
[22:22] Happy: Simone starts to grow nervous, wondering how long she'll be invisible.
[22:23] Happy: She starts moving slowly back the way she came.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: "But yet they keep attacking us, like rats, their different tribes raided our peaceful villages."
[22:24] Shadowcaller: The voice appears to be magically enchanted, she can hear it very clear, despite moving away
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "But we resisted their attacks, we struck back, protected what was ours."
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "We were blessed by our own gods, Helena, Nidas, Ymar…"
[22:25] Wolfbane: (Helena?)
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[22:26] Wolfbane: ( Oh, /were/)
[22:26] Happy: Simone keeps moving away.
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "We hunted down the humans, whiped them out, everywhere they settled…"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "Reorn was already there when this happend, he was the one that created the first gods."
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "And it is not fitting that he himself became a god?"
[22:29] Shadowcaller: "But one day, when we had almost whiped out all the humans, we came to a…" The voice is frowing fainter
[22:29] Happy: (Is Simone out of the crowds yet?)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (she is.)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: *growing
[22:29] Happy: She creeps forward again until she can hear.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "Small human village, they worshipped something that in their language was called "legion"
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "These last humans were easy t beat, the wolfen struck them down with their superior strength, the elves with their superior magic…"
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "But then… something rose from the village."
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "A creature that we named "Legion."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "It killed the entire army… magic had no effect upon it, and neither had weapons or swords."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "That being, spelled the doom of our entire empire."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "Once we had figure out a way to beat it, our empire was in pieces, it didn't kill a singel human thought, so everywhere we died, they flourished."
[22:34] Murska: (And totally their own fault.)
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "It was the end of the golden age."
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "We still had a few strong holds, such as the spirit gate, Kyou."
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "But even then… many of our kin choose to build tree cities in the skies, but we choose to remain here, to protect what was left of our civilzation."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "But then… many years later, after the human empires had rose, they started a war among themselves."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "Here, the humans saw this as a oppertunity, to whipe us all out."
[22:38] Wolfbane: (brb, dinner)
[22:38] Murska: (brb SC)
[22:38] Happy: (I'm still here :P)
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Despite Reorn's power, he the most powerful wizard in the world… Kyou fell to the humans, he escaped into a orb."
[22:39] Shadowcaller: (Yay!)
[22:39] Happy: Simone listens carefully, memorizing everything
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "That orb granted him immortality, but he could not act as the humans took it as their own."
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "They reduced both our races, to what they are today."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "But Reorn was not dead, many, many years later, a human wizard begun experimenting with the orb."
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "He was granted temporary powers, and used it to call anyone that could help him."
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "He found a mad goddess… but in that situation, anyone was good enough."
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "And, the orb was taken from the humans, not by the goddess, but by a simpel thief, a thief of our kin."
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "And this brings us to the moment today, Reorn is now our god, with his help we shall rebuild our empire, to ratake our souls and pride, we shall use the human weapon against themselves, we shall now control the legion!"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: The crowd is cheering to these words
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "We have the spirits on our side, they will aid us in this war, they have had enough of the humans torture, they will help us bring them to their knees!"
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "Soon… yes, very soon we can rebuild that was once ours."
[22:52] Happy: Simone is almost ready to turn and run.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: The speech appears to be finished
[22:52] Shadowcaller: The crowd is roaring in agreement
[22:53] Happy: Then she runs back, and tells the party everything.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (How exactly are one going to react to that? Hmm…)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (I wait until the others are here <.<=
[22:56] Shadowcaller: *)
[22:56] Happy: (yeah :P)
[22:59] Murska: Aegnor thinks about the situation but doesn't say anything.
[23:00] Murska: (Mostly since he doesn't really know which side he should be on and thus wants to just stay on his own.)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "…so they are planning to kill us all?"
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "I need to speak to Helena."
[23:01] Happy: "They using a Legion to kill all humans."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "Like we did to them apperently…"
[23:03] Shadowcaller: "Well, we need to stop them, somehow."
[23:03] Happy: "They say nothing work on the Legion. No weapons or magic. They say they find out how to stop it, but they not say how."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "I guess they used the same method as we used? The worm was a legion after all…"
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "So, we need to kill the channeler before they can fully create the legion."
[23:06] Wolfbane: (back, sorry it took a while)
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (Just got some back story)
[23:06] Happy: "It sound like they finished already."
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "…it did?"
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "But… no.. you must have heard wrong, if a legion would… it would kill all the villagers, it would wipe out the whole town."
[23:08] Happy: Simone repeats the words: "And this brings us to the moment today, Reorn is now our god, with his help we shall rebuild our empire, to ratake our souls and pride, we shall use the human weapon against themselves, we shall now control the legion!"
[23:08] Wolfbane: Promise finally speaks after the shock of what he was told. "And they claim Zubera is mad." He is obviously disgusted and angry.
[23:09] Wolfbane: He shakes his head. "These are not my kin. My kin would never seek this."
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "Lets hope they lied… we need to stop them."
[23:10] Wolfbane: "Beyond killing them, I don't know how. They sound like fanatics."
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "We don't need to kill them, just the channeler, the necromancer."
[23:11] Happy: "That being the elf wizard?"
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Yes… or that god they talked about…"
[23:12] Wolfbane: "What do you think will happen if we kill the channeler? We'll be attacked."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Why do his name feel familiar…?"
[23:12] Happy: "They say he live in an orb."
[23:13] Shadowcaller: "Like Helena…"
[23:13] Happy: "They mention her too. They say she one of their gods."
[23:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears to realize something "Long dead gods… all except her, and him apperently."
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "He was the one creating the orbs."
[23:15] Happy: "Helena, Nidas, and Ymar." Simone recites.
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "He was the one that made Helena into a god…"
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "The other two are most likely dead, gods don't live forever, unless they have these orbs apprently…"
[23:16] Wolfbane: "Or have enough followers."
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, thats true, but the amount of followers… we should have heard about them if they were that big."
[23:17] Wolfbane: "It could just be this village."
[23:18] Happy: "And they saying the spirits are on their side."
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "We know that already, some of the spirits, remember that this was a rousing speech, a lot of things could just have been lies."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "We need to know more about the village thought…"
[23:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie picks up the orb
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "Helena?"
[23:21] Happy: Helena appears. "Hello, my dear. Where have you been? I couldn't detect you."
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "…Hello, you have been blocked by the spirits for some time Helena, thats why we could not reach you."
[23:29] Happy: "How rude of them."
[23:30] Happy: "You seem a little distressed, my dear."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "Yes, quite…" Cessie tries to remain calm
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "We have trouble."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "What do you know about Reorn?"
[23:32] Happy: "Reorn? I had a lover named Reorn, one of my tutors. I told you about him, didn't I?"
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "You did…" Cessie looks down on the ground "He made that orb right?"
[23:35] Happy: "Yes, he did. It was considered one of the crown jewels. I carried it on all formal occasions at his insistence."
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "How many did he make?"
[23:37] Happy: "Only the one you hold. There couldn't be more than one Sovereign's Orb, you know."
[23:38] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks up again "Why not? Are you sure about that?"
[23:40] Happy: "Because I was the only Monarch. And who else would have use for something so ornamental and pointless? Of course I didn't know then that I would one day be a goddess and use it to communicate with my followers."
[23:41] Happy: "Although I don't know why it was the orb that I was able to use. It wasn't my favourite of the crown jewels. There were others much lovelier."
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "There might be something else with the orb… you have lived a very long life for a goddess haven't you?"
[23:43] Happy: "I suppose I have. I don't know of any other gods who have been ascended as long."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Most gods die after a certain time, if you are the first god in existance, don't you think its a bit wierd that you are still alive?"
[23:45] Happy: "I haven't liked to think of it," she says quietly.
[23:45] Murska: (Hmm. The events must've happened quite a long time ago then.)
[23:45] Murska: (Or gods are a pretty recent event)
[23:45] Shadowcaller: (they did.)
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "Well, can you think of it now Helena? We have found another orb, like yours."
[23:47] Happy: "Another orb? But… what do you think it means?"
[23:48] Happy: An illusion of her appears among the party.
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "I think that means the orbs are very important, one claimed that they grant immortality."
[23:48] Happy: Simone reflexively curtseys.
[23:50] Happy: "Immortality? I think Reorn was researching immortality."

[23:52] Happy: [23:48] Happy: Simone reflexively curtseys.
[23:50] Happy: "Immortality? I think Reorn was researching immortality."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears a bit more uncomfortable with Helena among them "…we heard his name mentioned."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "How was he? As a person I mean."
[23:54] Happy: (I thought she preferred talking to her in person)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (Well yeah, but with the things she just discovered.)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (She is afraid Helena will switch side or something.)
[23:55] Happy: (ah)
[23:57] Happy: "He was a lot like you. Very curious about things. Always studying. But he gave me the power I needed to keep my kingdom safe. And he was so affectionate. I really think he adored me."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "What happen to your kingdom anyway?"
[00:01] Happy: "It continued to grow after my ascension, with my protection. But as other gods arose over the ages, it ceased to be solely mine. I was only one of its protectors. Then populations shifted, lands were divided, and I had followers in several kingdoms."
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… sounds intresting, the elves were a very powerful people… but I don't see any of them today."
[00:03] Happy: "There were wars. Whenever there were wars, I lost influence. Other gods were turned to."
[00:04] Happy: "Then they went into the trees. Some of them took me with them, for a while. You remember the site where there had once been a temple."
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "I do…"
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "We heard a very intresting story not so very long ago, didn't we Simone?"
[00:05] Happy: "Yes, ma'am," Simone says.
[00:06] Happy: "You want me to tell it again?"
[00:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at the others, they can hear her voice in their heads /Should she tell Helena?/
[00:07] Murska: (And yeah, I'm reading this.)
[00:07] Murska: /Not sure. Maybe, we need to know something of the real events after all./
[00:07] Happy: /Why wouldn't you tell her?/
[00:08] Shadowcaller: /I'm afraid… ugh nevermind./
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "Yes, tell her."
[00:10] Happy: Simone repeats the speech, as nearly word-for-word as translation allows.
[00:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Helena, trying to see how she reacts
[00:13] Happy: Helena looks deeply shocked at the news that Reorn had become a god, but soon her face is composed into an expression of serene beauty, and remains that way throughout the rest of the story.
[00:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie still looks worried at Helena, waiting for some kind of response
[00:16] Shadowcaller: She is not the one to take the first step
[00:16] Happy: "Cessie, what is a Legion?" Helena asks.
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "Its a wast collection of souls, made by necromancy to feed upon the livning, there have until we used a special ritual in the tree only one way to kill a legion."
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "And that is another legion."
[00:19] Shadowcaller: "One legion could kill millions of people if it would not be stopped, it grows in power with each kill as the souls of its victims join it.."
[00:20] Happy: "Then it must be stopped." she says. "And yet, these are my people. I would not want them harmed."
[00:21] Shadowcaller: "I understand… is there anything you wish us to do?"
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "Maybe we can sneak in.. no one would be harmed, we just need to kill the one creating the legion."
[00:24] Happy: "You think stealth is best? If I only had a little more power, I could manifest in that village, challenge Reorn, take back my followers…"
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Is there any way I can give you power then?"
[00:26] Happy: "Other than worshippers, the only way I know of is what Reorn himself used, when he transferred power to me. But I'm not sure exactly how he did it."
[00:27] Shadowcaller: "What kind of energy did he transfer to you? Maybe I can transfere some of my energy in some way?"
[00:28] Shadowcaller: *transfer
[00:30] Happy: "It was so long ago… Let me think what I can remember."
[00:30] Happy: She's silent for some time.
[00:31] Happy: "I think, he called it life essence," she says finally.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Life essence, but thats necromacy… he used life energy to enpower you?"
[00:32] Murska: Aegnor's eyes widen slightly.
[00:33] Happy: "I don't remember him ever calling it necromancy."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: "But it is… and if thats the only way.. I need to do it."
[00:34] Happy: "But Cessie, this is not the way of stealth. Understand that."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "How do you mean?"
[00:35] Murska: 'I think we need to think this over carefully. What exactly are our goals?'
[00:36] Happy: She smiles, with a dark expression in her eyes. "You've seen gods in visions or in summoning circles. A god that manifests is a different experience."
[00:36] Wolfbane: "To get the orb and stop the other speaker and the hostile spirits. Right?"
[00:36] Happy: "Destroy the Legion," Hope says at once.
[00:36] Happy: "The orb is secondary."
[00:36] Wolfbane: "If we get the orb, I don't think they can make a Legion"
[00:37] Murska: 'Didn't we want the orb to use it's power to defeat the other speaker, the spirits and, by extension, the legion?'
[00:37] Murska: 'So if we can do those without it, we won't need it.'
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Apperently, there is a god within the orb…"
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "Wait, you would actually maifest?"
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "Look here, if we kill the channeler, the legion will die before its finished."
[00:39] Happy: "And who is the channeler?"
[00:39] Shadowcaller: "We can't kill the legion if its already finished, well unless we can summon another legion, or use that ritual again…"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "Most likely some necromancer in the town, maybe the speaker, maybe the god they spoke of.."
[00:41] Happy: "You think it may be Reorn?"
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "Yes, it is a possibility."
[00:42] Happy: "And how do you mean to challenge a god?"
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "I have not the sligthest clue, but it needs to be done."
[00:43] Happy: "And if you do? What will become of these people?"
[00:43] Happy: "They will need a protector."
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "…anyone got any ideas?" Cessie turns to the others
[00:44] Murska: 'Helena could become their god.'
[00:44] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "They worshipped her once. All they need to know is that she is there and they will likely do so again."
[00:45] Happy: "Would the spirit knife harm a god?" Hope asks.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: "I doubt it… otherwise the gods would have destroyed them by now."
[00:47] Happy: Helena: "I can challenge him for their souls, but they may choose him over me. If he has stirred them up into a war frenzy, they will see little use for beauty."
[00:47] Happy: "I thought him a better person than this. He is not acting to protect them. He must know they'll be destroyed by his actions."
[00:48] Murska: 'I think they are willing to fight, according to what Simone heard…'
[00:49] Happy: "And for what? What lands can they hold, such a small population?"
[00:50] Murska: 'Probably not much more than what they have now.'
[00:51] Murska: 'It would be better for them just to move somewhere where they can live in peace, if this empire oppresses them. The world has space.'
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "Well, we might want to focus on the whole god-killing deal first…"
[00:53] Happy: Helena puts a hand to Cessie's cheek. "These are my people. I can't explain to you the need that I feel to protect them. It's been so long that I'd forgotten what it was like. But I will protect you as well, somehow."
[00:55] Shadowcaller: "Helena I… I don't know what do to, I need guidance, I need advices.."
[00:56] Happy: "Perhaps your way is best. I helped you with stealth before. I could disguise you as elves while you try to find the necromancer."
[00:57] Shadowcaller: (need advices here people <.<)
[00:57] Wolfbane: "I don't think I would need to be disguised, would I?"
[00:58] Happy: "There being many Wolfen in village," Simone says. "None with your mark though."
[00:58] Happy: "I have no power over your mark," Helena says.
[00:59] Murska: 'Wouldn't the people of a village like that notice outsiders very easily…'
[00:59] Murska: 'No visitors.'
[01:00] Happy: Hope: "Perhaps only partial stealth then. We don't claim to be of them, but we don't let them know we are human either."
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… I guess, but what are we supposed to say to them?"
[01:02] Happy: "Tell them the gods and the spirits sent us. That much is true, at least."
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "Do you think this is a good idea?" (question meant to everyone.)
[01:04] Happy: *pokes the others*
[01:05] Murska: 'Well, it's not like we're going to just walk away.'
[01:05] Wolfbane: "I think it sounds good. We just have to be on guard."
[01:05] Happy: "What about Iname?"
[01:07] Murska: 'It hasn't decided which side, if any, to support yet.'
[01:08] Happy: "It represents balance, right? What they mean to do isn't balanced. It will be all death."
[01:09] Wolfbane: "And this Legion will certainly upset any balance."
[01:10] Murska: 'According to the other side, it'd just be all the death of humans.'
[01:10] Murska: 'For a while that would probably be true, too.'
[01:11] Happy: "Does Iname differentiate between the races?"
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "The only way is to ask it I guess…"
[01:12] Murska: 'I don't think it would. Should I contact it now?
[01:12] Happy: "Yes, I think you should."
[01:14] Murska: (TMM game started. -.-)
[01:15] Happy: ?
[01:15] Murska: Aegnor contacts Iname then. (in SC, let's RP the conversation in a bit)
[01:16] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[01:22] Murska: (darnit taking a while… alone against three people)
[01:22] Wolfbane: (3 agaisnt 1?)
[01:23] Shadowcaller: (Newbs most likely.)
[01:29] Happy: Helena paces back and forth, her appearance shifting continually (though unlike the former Zubera, it's always a version of herself).
[01:30] Murska: (won)
[01:31] Murska: (Now let's see.)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (Darn newbs…)
[01:31] Murska: (Recall into mineral line. :P)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[01:34] Murska: /We've seen some of what's going on here. According to what we know, they are creating a Legion, which is by it's whole nature an enemy of life and nature, specifically to kill humans. Now, they are claiming that would give a new start for the elves and Wolfen to rise again, which is possible although not by any means certain./
[01:35] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: A great end then… just as happen in ages past, a fitting balance don't you think?/
[01:36] Shadowcaller: /First voice: No… there is no balance in this, this is unatural, we must interfere./
[01:36] Happy: (Wolfie, are you still here?)
[01:37] Wolfbane: (yeah, just listening)
[01:37] Murska: /I don't think it is balanced. There are a lot of humans, and the legion would become very powerful. And there is no guarantee that life would rise again afterwards./
[01:38] Shadowcaller: /First voice: He tells the truth, there was no balance the first time, and doing it a second time won't bring it back./
[01:39] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Things die… things are born, there is no end./
[01:39] Murska: /How is it balanced if more things die than are born?/
[01:40] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Things have always died in great numbers, but they have always recovered, in the end, there is no difference./
[01:41] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: We don't interfere when you wage war, yet many die, why should we interfere now?/
[01:43] Murska: /They have recovered thus far. But it still doesn't mean it's balanced for something to destroy a lot of things, just that it's very difficult to destroy that balance completely. Wars end naturally when enough people die in them that the rest can't fight anymore. But the Legion won't stop killing./
[01:45] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: There have been legions before, during the humans war, they were stopped, as they will be now./
[01:46] Shadowcaller: /First voice: There is a difference… if the humans wish to stop this legion, they need to make another one, which in turn will take even more lifes./
[01:47] Murska: /And in the end, the remaining one will be even more powerful./
[01:49] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: They will both die, legions take out each other./
[01:49] Murska: (yet another game. I'm the only good microer so they need me :( Most people aren't in today's session)
[01:49] Shadowcaller: (okay…)
[01:50] Shadowcaller: (um Hope and Promise talk? <.<)
[01:50] Shadowcaller: (making powers for rumble.)
[01:51] Shadowcaller: (Kyou recruitment up…)
[01:51] Wolfbane: (Cool, I'd play, but yeah)
[01:51] Shadowcaller: (I know
[01:52] Happy: :(
[01:54] Wolfbane: (I'd probably end up lynching myself though. :P)
[01:54] Shadowcaller: (hehe.)
[02:02] Happy: Helena's form finally settles to one in stylized armour like this: (Link:
[02:02] Murska: (back)
[02:02] Shadowcaller: o.O
[02:03] Murska: (this time it was 3-3 so I sort of overran them. -.-
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (Kyou recruitment up…)
[02:03] Murska: (Hmm. No explosive runes in Happy's post.)
[02:03] Happy: "I could send my Servant to you."
[02:04] Murska: (So wait, whenever two legions fight, they kill each other)
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (Yes, they create some type of reaction.)
[02:05] Murska: /It would still take a lot of deaths to create one. And who knows how long until they figure out how again./
[02:06] Shadowcaller: /First voice: The humans would need to take as many lives as the elves did…/
[02:07] Shadowcaller: /First voice: And then many more legions would be created, it would start another human war./
[02:07] Murska: (Hmm… How much does Aegnor know about the Structure of the World as discussed again… Is it plausible for him to argue that it'd lessen the total amount of life-energy in the world, thus weakening it and it's purpose.)
[02:07] Happy: (and how many people does the reaction take out?)
[02:08] Shadowcaller: (the reaction only take out the legions, but since it takes a lot of souls to create a legion + all the souls they take while they are alive…)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (Its kind of like magical A-bombs-)
[02:12] Shadowcaller: (Well… yes, a legion actually removes life energy from the world by taking their souls.)
[02:14] Murska: (That'd probably cause some warning bells to ring in the immune system of Magic at some point.)
[02:15] Shadowcaller: (and we don't want that do we?…)
[02:15] Murska: (No.)
[02:15] Shadowcaller: (And also, Simone might know that "Legion" means "Mother" in human languages.)
[02:15] Murska: (The technique of human immune system to get rid of viruses in cells is to kill them)
[02:16] Murska: (the cells, that is.)
[02:16] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[02:17] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: What exactly dose this one ask us to do?/
[02:20] Murska: /We are going to attempt to prevent the Legion from being created. Any help would be welcome./
[02:24] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: We know of your morals speaker, we can not help you in any way we can, or at least I can not and its my turn to drive./
[02:27] Shadowcaller: (brb, bathroom.)
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[02:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Promise?"
[02:34] Wolfbane: "Yes?"
[02:35] Shadowcaller: "Could you attempt to call for Zubera? We need all help we can get…" (and also since I just need to see Helena and Zubera met:P)
[02:35] Wolfbane: "Of course. Do I need a circle?"
[02:36] Shadowcaller: "I took with me some of the powder… just in case."
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie makes a cricle
[02:37] Wolfbane: Promise stands before it. "Zubera?"
[02:38] Shadowcaller: A ghostly form appears before you, then slowly it materalizes
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Zubera stands once again before you
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "Greetings…"
[02:38] Happy: Hope is standing well back, but she looks this time.
[02:39] Wolfbane: Promise bows.
[02:39] Happy: Helena suddenly snaps out of her reverie as she feels the presence of another god.
[02:40] Wolfbane: "I am glad that you answered."
[02:40] Shadowcaller: "As am I… I'm making some changes in the hall of masks."
[02:40] Shadowcaller: "But you appears to have made some intresting friends…"
[02:41] * moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes has left the conversation.
[02:41] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[02:42] Wolfbane: Promise stands. "Ah, where are my manners? Zubera, this is Helena. Helena, this is Zubera."
[02:42] Shadowcaller: Zubera looks curiously at Helena
[02:42] Shadowcaller: "Who is she?"
[02:44] Wolfbane: "Helena, from what I understand, is The Goddess of Beauty. Am I right?"
[02:45] Murska: /Well, it doesn't seem like I can convince you in any way./
[02:45] Happy: Helena approaches the circle to stand next to Promise, inclining her head slightly. "That is correct. I am the eldest of the Risen Ones," she says, her manner regal.
[02:46] Shadowcaller: /First voice: We are convinced, the other are just a bit slower./ You feel a powerful power sugere, that just maybe might be a nudge
[02:46] Wolfbane: "Helena, this is Zubera. The Goddess of Actors and Musicians. She is also the one I serve."
[02:47] Shadowcaller: Zubera looks doubtful at Helena "Greetins Helena, for being so old I have never heard of you, tell me, how many worshippers have you?"
[02:48] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: …what do you need me for?/
[02:49] Shadowcaller: *greetings
[02:49] Happy: "I am so old that they have all forgotten me. There are very few of my followers left."
[02:51] Murska: Aegnor waits to see if Iname can get into some kind of an agreement with itself on if it'll help and how.
[02:52] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Tell me Helena, is that your orb? I can feel your presence inside it./
[02:52] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Do the speakers bidding, we have never been asked before./
[02:52] Happy: "It is. I carried it in life, and now I am tied to it in my ascension."
[02:53] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Speaker, what exactly do you want us to do? there are some boundaries I am not willing to pass./
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "So, goddess of beauty, that is a quite narrow aspect is it not?"
[02:55] Happy: "I was once the protector of a large empire. And you rule the stage?"
[02:57] Shadowcaller: Zubera expression remains neutral: "That is one way to put it, I handle music, art and such things too, passion."
[02:58] Shadowcaller: "There is no greater force really, but of course, things needs to be pretty too."
[02:59] Happy: "And you protect these people, just as I do?"
[03:01] Shadowcaller: "I'm trying to protect as many as I can, Promise here might be the greatest wolfen alive, who serves you then?"
[03:01] Murska: /We would need help in getting rid of the necromancer creating the Legion./
[03:02] Happy: Helena smiles. "I am not competing with you. Can we not be sisters?"
[03:02] Shadowcaller: /Second voice (amused): End something…? That might be in my power./
[03:04] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "I am not competing with you Helena, sorry if it might have appeared that way, I'm just very proud of my servants, he have helped me so much."
[03:05] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Where is this necromancer then? Let me end him./
[03:05] Happy: "I have a bond with Cessie Mithar, but she is a friend rather than a servant."
[03:06] Murska: /We do not know exactly, yet. Shall I contact you once we do, then?/
[03:07] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: A great idea, one person is hardly interfering is it?/
[03:07] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Just one person then, you go over the edge sometimes../
[03:07] Shadowcaller: (they continue arguing.)
[03:09] Shadowcaller: Zubera looks over at Cessie, "I see… that explains things, we might not be so differnet Helena, art is after all beauty in the eye of the beholder."
[03:11] Murska: 'I got it's help in killing the necromancer, once we find out who it is.'
[03:12] Happy: Helena turns to Cessie. "Should I send my Servant to help you?"
[03:12] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "All help is needed…"
[03:12] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "There must be something I can do, Promise?"
[03:14] Wolfbane: "We have found the orb, but have hit a bit of a snag." He explains what is happening with the god, the Legion and the village.
[03:15] Shadowcaller: "That explains a lot… he think he can use me as some kind of puppet? I may not be the facestealer any more, but I would enjoy breaking such a mad gods neck."
[03:16] Happy: "Can you do that?" Helena asks Zubera.
[03:16] Shadowcaller: "Do what darling?"
[03:16] Happy: "Kill Reorn."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Lets find the necromancer then, once we gathered all help we can of course."
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "Oh, just a temporary outburst, I am in unbalance after… my long sleep, I know that gods might be killed thought, I was almost killed myself see?"
[03:20] Shadowcaller: "Right now, I'm only myself, I do not wish to act for a very long time…"
[03:23] Happy: "Reorn's Ba is greater than mine. I cannot challenge him directly, but I can try to win his followers from him."
[03:24] Happy: (Link:
[03:25] Shadowcaller: "He indirectly cuased my death too… thought all considering, that might have been a good thing."
[03:25] Shadowcaller: "But if he wishes to harm my offcial home town… I am willing to aid you Helena."
[03:27] Shadowcaller: "My Ba might still be weak, but I have many worshippers."
[03:27] Happy: (Has Zubera been 'returned to life' now?)
[03:27] Shadowcaller: (one could say so yes.)
[03:30] Happy: "Cessie, I must leave you and prepare. My Servant will be with you soon."
[03:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Okay." She bows, "Thank you for all your help Helena."
[03:31] Happy: "It was an honour to meet you, Zubera of the Arts."
[03:31] Happy: Helena's illusion vanishes
[03:32] Shadowcaller: Zubera nods before Helena disspears
[03:34] Happy: Hope: "Whatever we do, we should do it soon."
[03:34] Shadowcaller: "Promise, I will grant you the skill required to act your way past any mortal r
[03:34] Shadowcaller: *obstacle."
[03:35] Wolfbane: "Thank you. How does it work?"
[03:35] Shadowcaller: "Just imagine yourself a role… and you become it."
[03:36] Shadowcaller: "It can be dangerous, remember that we can become our masks, as I did…"
[03:36] Shadowcaller: "Use it with care."
[03:36] Wolfbane: "I shall be careful. Does it chance my physical appearence as well?"
[03:37] Shadowcaller: "The mask… just imagine it to be something else."
[03:37] Shadowcaller: "But do not lose yourself within the role, I do not wish to see another facestealer…"
[03:38] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "I won't lose myself to it."
[03:38] Happy: (And just imagine how badly Hope would damaged! O.O)
[03:38] Shadowcaller: "Now we forgot to ask Helena about disguises…"
[03:39] Happy: /Of course I will disguise you, my dear./
[03:39] Happy: (in Cessie's head)
[03:40] Shadowcaller: /Oh, but can you really disguise us all?/
[03:41] Happy: /You, the barbarian, and the pretty little girl who told the story, yes?/
[03:42] Shadowcaller: /Yes, thats correct, just don't do it sudden okay? I need to be mentally prepared./
[03:43] Happy: /I will wait for your signal./
[03:43] Shadowcaller: /Good, thanks once again Helena./
[03:44] Wolfbane: (I take it Zubera is still there?)
[03:44] Shadowcaller: (she is.)
[03:45] Wolfbane: "You said you were making a few changes to the Hall of Masks. What are they?"
[03:45] Shadowcaller: "More music, less masks."
[03:46] Shadowcaller: "There will be a great opera hall with many kinds of instruments, I think your elf friend would enjoy it."
[03:48] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at the news. "It is good to hear. I think I shall have to visit it again once this is over with."
[03:49] Shadowcaller: "You will be most welcome, I will be honored by your visit Promise, oh and I have one favor to ask for you."
[03:50] Wolfbane: "If it would be in my power."
[03:51] Shadowcaller: "Can you ask your elf friend to play there?"
[03:51] Murska: (Hm. Wait, don't I hear this discussion?)
[03:52] Wolfbane: (Yes)
[03:52] Shadowcaller: (Maybe, she might just not realize it.)
[03:52] Murska: 'I would be honoured.'
[03:53] Shadowcaller: She smiles at Aegnor, "I have already heard you play, you could make Kyou famous in more ways then one you know."
[03:55] Murska: 'I have certain ideas that I would need adequate resources to fulfill… but maybe we should talk of it after the current situation is over.'
[03:56] Shadowcaller: "Yes… kill that pathetic creature and return safe, I would even manifest and aid you if I could…"
[03:56] Happy: Simone has been sitting quietly, listening intently to all the talk of the gods.
[03:57] Shadowcaller: "But my Ba is still weak, I can only offer blessings… just call upon me again once you need aid, I will manifest once I am able to."
[03:58] Wolfbane: Promise bows. "Thank you."
[03:59] Shadowcaller: "Now I need to go… farwell everyone, and blessings to you Hope, I hope we can become friends in the future…"
[03:59] Shadowcaller: She is gone
[04:01] Happy: Hope goes to Promise's side and hugs him.
[04:01] Wolfbane: Promise hugs her tightly.
[04:02] Wolfbane: "Do you believe me now?"
[04:04] Happy: "It was never /you/ that I doubted."
[04:05] Wolfbane: "Thank you."
[04:06] Shadowcaller: Cessie smiles at them gives them some more room
[04:08] Shadowcaller: "Maybe we should camp outside the village then?"
[04:10] Happy: "If you think we can afford another night."
[04:11] Shadowcaller: "I don't"
[04:12] Shadowcaller: "We just need something to go back to once we found him."
[04:17] Shadowcaller: (Tomorrow we sneak in then… I need to sleep.)
[04:17] Shadowcaller: (Murska don't I guess:P)
[04:18] Happy: Hope finds a place to set up a camp for the party.
