Kyou 13

[18:22] Shadowcaller: You are at the forests edge, close to the village called "dirt" in hyrillian.
[18:23] Shadowcaller: You have gained the favor of many gods and spirits, but your enemy appears also to be a god, and the hostile spirit speaker Allyria is also nearby
[18:23] Happy: (she is? has my prey sense moved?)
[18:24] Shadowcaller: (She is near, but not THAT near.)
[18:24] Happy: (kay)
[18:24] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "So… what are we going to do now?"
[18:26] Happy: "Promise can take on any role he can imagine, and we can be disguised. We'll go into the village and try to find the necromancer, but I don't know how."
[18:26] Shadowcaller: "I hate to change apperance…"
[18:28] Shadowcaller: "So, we are all going in, or should someone stay back?"
[18:28] Murska: 'I don't think leaving anyone behind would help.'
[18:28] Happy: "You're the only one of us who can recognize necromancy."
[18:29] Happy: "We need Simone to translate. Aegnor and Promise are best at persuasion. And I have my prey sense."
[18:29] Happy: Aegnor and Promise hear footsteps nearby.
[18:29] Shadowcaller: Cessie sigh, "I guess you are right, we go in, find the necromancer, then we let Iname finish him or her."
[18:30] Wolfbane: Promise's ears perk up. "Someone is coming, get ready just in case."
[18:32] Happy: Hope draws her sword. Simone hides.
[18:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie stands ready to cast a spell
[18:34] Happy: Soon the rest of you can hear him, and then see him.
[18:34] Happy: (Link:
[18:34] Shadowcaller: (Its a goth! kill it!)
[18:35] Happy: (he's very pretty :P)
[18:35] Murska: Aegnor didn't make a move to prepare for combat.
[18:35] Murska: 'Hello.'
[18:35] Happy: He looks around the party, and his eyes fix on Cessie. He bows elaborately and tries to take her hand to kiss it.
[18:36] Shadowcaller: She just looks shocked at him, her jaw dropping a bit
[18:37] Wolfbane: Promise chuckles lightly.
[18:37] Murska: Aegnor walks to him. 'Hello, I said.' With a less friendly tone.
[18:37] Happy: "My greetings, Cessie Mithar. I am Itef, Servant of Helena, and now your servant as well."
[18:37] Murska: (right. :P)
[18:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie blinks a bit "Err… I understand." she finally says
[18:38] Happy: He turns to Aegnor. "Hello." He doesn't appear to be armed.
[18:39] Murska: 'So, you're here to help us. What can you do?'
[18:41] Shadowcaller: Cessie still appear a bit taken aback by Itef's sudden apperance
[18:41] Happy: "My orders are to protect Cessie Mithar, the inhabitants of the village who are not directly involved in the creation of the Legion, and the rest of your party." In that order of priority, though he doesn't say that.
[18:43] Shadowcaller: "Thats- thats very nice of her."
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "But… as Aegnor said, what are your abilities?"
[18:47] Happy: He looks a little confused. "I can protect you."
[18:48] Murska: 'With what? Magic? Weapons?'
[18:50] Happy: "I'm not a wizard," he says. He puts his hands on Cessie's shoulders and looks her in the eyes. "But I swear, no harm will come to you." She can feel some type of magic flowing over her, but it's not one she's familar with.
[18:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie can just stare back with a bit dim-witted expression on her face
[18:53] Murska: 'So what exactly can you do?' Aegnor sighs.
[18:53] Happy: (oh no! She's catching his stupidness!)
[18:54] Shadowcaller: "Thats good… I guess, but it would be better if you explained it a bit more." She finally says after a while
[18:54] Happy: /He doesn't really understand his own abilities./ Helena says in Cessie's head. /He's lovely, but not terribly bright./
[18:55] Shadowcaller: /Um, okay is he always this hand on?/
[18:57] Happy: /He had to touch you to place you under his protection. But I'll speak to him./
[18:57] Happy: Itef removes his hands, and bows again. "My apologies, Lady Mithar."
[18:59] Shadowcaller: Cessie shakes her head a bit, "Its okay.. I'm okay."
[19:00] Happy: "We still don't have a plan," Hope says.
[19:01] Shadowcaller: "We are just going in right? Disguised, and then we can try to convince them of our good intentions…"
[19:02] Wolfbane: "I doubt we will be able to persuade them, but we should at least try."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "We just tell them we want to help them."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "ANy can come up with a good exhuse?"
[19:04] Murska: 'Sent by the gods and spirits to help them. Helena's servant might help with that.'
[19:04] Murska: 'Then find and get rid of the necromancer.'
[19:04] Shadowcaller: "If something goes wrong?"
[19:05] Wolfbane: Promise shrugs. "We'll find out then. We can't really plan for everything."
[19:06] Shadowcaller: "We should have a emergency plan, just in case."
[19:06] Murska: 'Emergency plan: Summon everything we can and get away from the village in the confusion?'
[19:06] Happy: /You send me the power to manifest./ Helena says.
[19:07] Shadowcaller: /I guess we can do with that…/
[19:07] Shadowcaller: "Sure, I can summon a air elemental or something."
[19:07] Happy: Simone speaks up. "You want I should call Myubi? I am not wanting him hurt though."
[19:10] Shadowcaller: "Just in emergency, we try the first plan before we are calling our allies."
[19:13] Happy: Simone: /Myubi? Are you listening?/
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around, her gaze staying a bit longer on Aegnor, "Is everyone ready then?"
[19:13] Shadowcaller: /Simone? Hello again./
[19:14] Murska: 'Don't think we'll get any readier.'
[19:14] Happy: /I just telling you, we are about to do something dangerous. We are going to find the maker of the Legion./
[19:14] Happy: Helena: /Shall I disguise you now?/
[19:15] Wolfbane: (SC, if I acted a specific role like Spirit Speaker, would that let me talk to spirits?)
[19:15] Shadowcaller: (Um I guess.)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (Yes, I suppose, good intiative there.)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: /…please don't endanger yourself Simone, I don't want you to end now./
[19:17] Wolfbane: (So I can gain the abilities of my role? I can see why Zubera had a hard time not losing herself. )
[19:17] Happy: /I don't want to end either. But the Legion ate my friend./
[19:17] Wolfbane: (A /very/ hard time)
[19:18] Shadowcaller: /So you are doing this for revenge then? Thats never good…/
[19:19] Happy: /No. It's because if we destroy the Legion, then Ai's soul will be set free. And../ *mental mumbling* /…I want to help/
[19:20] Happy: (Helena is still waiting for an answer)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /I suppose… yes, we are ready, lets just get this over with./
[19:20] Shadowcaller: (Copied.)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: /For salvation then… be safe, don't do anything unthinking./
[19:21] Happy: (I never saw that. I still don't see it in the transcript. Weird.)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Not like that…eh never mind.)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (I had that line READY that is.O)
[19:21] Happy: The features of Cessie, Hope, and Simone change to make them look elven.
[19:23] Wolfbane: Promise takes out the mask and puts it one wanting to be "The Wolfen everyone knows, but can't remember anything about." (If I can do that)
[19:23] Shadowcaller: (You need to be a specific person sadly.)
[19:23] Wolfbane: (Aww…. :P)
[19:24] Wolfbane: The Average Wolfen then. That way he doesn't stand out.
[19:24] Shadowcaller: (Your mark is hidden too.)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (Since its her mark after all.)
[19:25] Wolfbane: (Yay! And does he have to take off the mask before thinking of a new role?)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (Well, no.)
[19:25] Wolfbane: (Okay, that helps)
[19:26] Happy: (hmm… the average wolfen doesn't have a human mate)
[19:27] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around at the others that also changed "How do I look?"
[19:27] Happy: (I'm guessing he'll know in his mind that Hope is his mate, but that he won't feel attracted to her, and she won't smell right to him.)
[19:27] Wolfbane: (True)
[19:28] Wolfbane: (Yeah)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: (Remember that you might lose yourself into the role, its hard to make difference between yourself and the role the longer you are it.)
[19:28] Murska: Aegnor looks silently at the elven-ized people.
[19:28] Wolfbane: (Hopefully it won't be that long)
[19:28] Happy: "You look like elf lady, Miss Cessie."
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "Well yeah, I had realized that, I feel changed… but we need to go, I can look in a mirror later.."
[19:30] Happy: Hope: "Who speaks for us? Promise or Aegnor?"
[19:30] Wolfbane: "Let Aegnor do it. He is better than me at this kind of thing."
[19:31] Murska: 'We can both speak. It's not like we need a representative or something.'
[19:33] Happy: "I follow your orders, my Lady," Itef says to Cessie.
[19:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie smiles at him "Let Aegnor and Promise speak then, they are good at such things."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: (Since when did Cessie become the party leader?:P)
[19:37] Happy: (Who did you expect Helena to tell her Servant to obey? :P)
[19:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, it feels like I must do all these, "we go to the village" things.)
[19:38] Shadowcaller: (Or, "is everyone ready?")
[19:38] Shadowcaller: (The others just reacts to her intiatives.)
[19:39] Murska: (I guess it's like that for now, then.)
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (Well since I'm currently the narrator, you need to say you are going into the village at least.)
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (I don't want to react to my own actions.)
[19:41] Happy: "Let's go then." Hope heads towards the village.
[19:41] Happy: (better? :P)
[19:41] Murska: (Ayup. :P)
[19:41] Shadowcaller: (by much.)
[19:41] Murska: (I'm a bit busy with stuff since I seem to be either sleeping or IFing 100% of my time and I got to do all the scheming too)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (Bah, you sleep too much.)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (I can do fine with 6 hours of sleep.)
[19:42] Murska: (Well, might have something to do with the fact that I'm not allowed to sleep during nights because of the IF or days because of school so I sleep on weekends.)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: (Well, IF less then?:P)
[19:43] Murska: (No way.)
[19:43] Murska: (I do fine with 12 hours of sleep per two days aswell, but I sleep it all at once. :P)
[19:44] Shadowcaller: As you come closer to the village, one wolfen already appears to have seen you, he is running into the village
[19:45] Shadowcaller: You go deeper into the village, but don't see any villagers, just dirty huts
[19:45] Happy: Hope is moving towards her prey.
[19:46] Shadowcaller: Soon you are met by a large gathering of villagers, among them many fierce lookign wolfen and the elven speaker Simone saw
[19:47] Murska: Aegnor passes Hope. 'Greetings.'
[19:47] Happy: Simone translates.
[19:48] Shadowcaller: The speaker looks you over "Who are you and how did you get there?" He is speaking elven
[19:49] Happy: Simone doesn't know Elven, so she falls silent.
[19:49] Murska: Aegnor switches to elven aswell. 'Hello. We were gathered and sent here to help you with your task.'
[19:49] Shadowcaller: "And your name is?" He seems quite to the point
[19:52] Murska: (Visitors…)
[19:52] Murska: 'The manners… I am called Elar by some people.'
[19:53] Murska: Aegnor picks one of the names he's used on the Tree.
[19:53] Murska: 'Who would you be?'
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "Nia" He makes a short bow "I am the speaker of Reorn, I assume thats why you have come?"
[19:57] Murska: Aegnor switches to common. 'Honestly, we do not know exactly why we are here. We were just told to come here and help those we find.' ( Aegnor wishes Cessie would use her telepathy so he could relay this information to the party.)
[19:57] Murska: He also bows slightly.
[20:00] Shadowcaller: Nia makes some kind of gesture that you are not sure the meaning of "Shagumi did not report any visitors, how exactly did you get here?"
[20:01] Murska: 'We walked. Now, we've had a long journey so we'd like to know where we would be needed and maybe have something to eat.'
[20:02] Shadowcaller: He appears to still be a bit suspicious about this "Before we do that, mind explaining who you have been sent by and how you passed our guard?"
[20:04] Murska: 'I was sent by Iname, and guided to the others.'
[20:05] Shadowcaller: He seems suprised by this "Iname? I'm not sure…" He pauses a moment.
[20:06] Shadowcaller: "Give them a hut." He finally says, "And something to eat, you know what to do."
[20:07] Happy: (how close is the prey?)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: He walks away, into the center of the town, a wolfen appears to offer to guide you
[20:08] Shadowcaller: (She is nearer then before, but not extremly close yet, you would be unable to see her even if all obstacles were removed.)
[20:09] Happy: (the Legion?)
[20:09] Shadowcaller: The other wolfen still glares at you coldly
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (The legion is back in Kyou, growing in strength.)
[20:10] Wolfbane: Promise nods and starts to follow the guide.
[20:11] Happy: (okay, i thought the legion was here and the speaker was there *rearranges brain*)
[20:11] Murska: Aegnor talks to the others in Common. 'Hmm. We should discuss some things.'
[20:12] Murska: Quietly, while walking.
[20:12] Murska: But not quietly enough to be suspicious.
[20:12] Shadowcaller: The wolfen guides you to a bit larger hut, behind you are two other wolfen, that appears to guard you
[20:13] Shadowcaller: You enter the hut, there is only some type of camp fire inside it
[20:13] Shadowcaller: Nothing else
[20:13] Shadowcaller: Your guide moves away, but the guards stay rigth outside the hut
[20:13] Shadowcaller: *right
[20:14] Happy: Simone is frightened. Hope coldly determined. Itef interested.
[20:14] Wolfbane: (Can Promise change roles into Promise that looks average? That way he stays mentally himself?
[20:14] Wolfbane: )
[20:15] Murska: Aegnor quietly whispers to Cessie. 'My name is Elar for as long as we are here. Can you spread the word?'
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (Hm, the mental thing is a part of the role…)
[20:16] Wolfbane: (It would be Average /looking/ Promise)
[20:16] Shadowcaller: /Sure./ She responds in your head
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (Eh, why not?)
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (she tells this to everyone else.)
[20:16] Murska: Aegnor mentally explains to her the story he has told.
[20:17] Happy: (telepathically?)
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[20:17] Wolfbane: Promise is starting to feel mentally dull so he shifts his role into and Average /looking/ Promise.
[20:19] Shadowcaller: /So, what now? Just wait for him to return back?/
[20:19] Happy: Hope: /The speaker is near. I must find her./
[20:20] Happy: /Why not just ask for her by name?/
[20:20] Murska: (I assume only Cessie can hear Hope.)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: (Damn limitations…)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: (she says this to everyone else.)
[20:21] Wolfbane: /Should we just play along for now? Try to get close to them before doing anything?/
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (She repeats everything said to her to every party member.)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (With different words perhaps.)
[20:21] Happy: /Do we all need names?/ Simone asks
[20:22] Murska: /Yeah, they're suspicious enough of us for now./
[20:22] Wolfbane: /I can stick to Promise I think./
[20:22] Murska: /And we can't use names that the other speaker could recognize. Luckily I haven't been seen without my disguise, I think./
[20:22] Shadowcaller: /Maybe you should tell Iname of this?/
[20:23] Wolfbane: /The other Speaker doesn't know my name. It hasn't been said at all where they could learn of it, has it?/
[20:23] Shadowcaller: /Remember that they also have a speaker, they could ask Iname to confirm our story./
[20:24] Happy: /Chelonie for me. And Promise can use his brother's name of Spiritguardian, if that's allowed./ Hope says.
[20:25] Wolfbane: /I don't think my brother would mind. Spiritguard then for me./
[20:26] Happy: Simone: /I be Anna. But don't you think they knowing us enough by description? We cannot hide very long./
[20:26] Murska: /We hopefully won't be staying very long./
[20:26] Murska: Aegnor contacts Iname. /Could I ask you a favour?/
[20:27] Shadowcaller: /FIrst voice: What is it speaker? We are being called upon by many voices right now./
[20:28] Murska: /If asked about us, could you tell that we were sent to the village by you?/
[20:29] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: I assume you mean the darknees? She have been very close to us… I am not sure I can lie to her./
[20:30] Murska: /It's not technically a lie. You were the one who let us here./
[20:30] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Are you going to hurt her speaker?/
[20:31] Murska: /For now, I'll be trying to find the necromancer and also find out exactly what's going on here./
[20:32] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: So you swear that you or your allies won't in any way harm her?/
[20:32] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Or at least not kill her./
[20:33] Murska: /Unless she attempts to harm us first, I swear that I will not attack her./
[20:33] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: Very well, then we will tell her we sent you… to do what exactly?/
[20:34] Murska: /To help them./
[20:34] Murska: /You don't need to be specific./
[20:34] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Are you still a speaker then?… She is very stubborn, she won't rest without clear answers./
[20:35] Murska: /What exactly is she asking?/
[20:36] Wolfbane: brb
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Who you are, what your name is, why we sent you, what your allies and your powers are…/
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: She suspects something is wrong already./
[20:39] Murska: /I am one of the elves still in contact with the spirits. My name is Elar, and you sent me to help them in whatever way we can. My allies work with Helena and they had better ask about our powers themselves./
[20:40] Wolfbane: (back)
[20:40] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Very well, but I do not like this…/
[20:41] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /Me then? Aegnor, what is a typical elf name?/
[20:44] Murska: Aegnor is silent for a moment. Then he looks away. /Adele?/
[20:44] Shadowcaller: She smiles and says in quite broken elven: "Good."
[20:45] Murska: /Hmm. The language is a problem./
[20:46] Murska: Aegnor listens near the entrance to the hut for anyone coming in to bring their food.
[20:46] Shadowcaller: (You only hear the wolfen outside.)
[20:49] Shadowcaller: /Well, we can't instantly learn elven, and its starting to feel like this was a bad idea../
[20:50] Murska: /Better to try it this way first. We haven't shut out the head-on opportunity yet. Now, any ideas for a reason why you don't know elven? Lived amongst humans for your whole life or something similar?/
[20:51] Shadowcaller: /That could work, but we might need a reason we stay together./
[20:53] Murska: /I've been trying to give the impression that I've gathered you all here to help from all over, guided by both Helena and the spirits./
[20:54] Shadowcaller: /Okay, how did we meet then? Just trying to cover the holes../
[20:56] Happy: Hope is growing noticeably restless.
[20:57] Murska: /Let's keep it relatively simple, if possible./ (Already?)
[20:57] Happy: (prey hunger :P)
[20:57] Murska: (Yeah, already? :P)
[20:58] Shadowcaller: /Lets go with that then./
[20:59] Murska: /I met you on the tree, caring for an old temple for Helena?/
[20:59] Shadowcaller: /Almost sounds true…/
[21:00] Shadowcaller: You can hear sounds outside, someone is coming
[21:00] Murska: /Someone is coming./
[21:02] Shadowcaller: A huge wolfen enters the hut along with two other wolfen that appears to be his guards or something like that
[21:02] Shadowcaller: He snarls, Promise can see this as a type of minor challenge
[21:02] Murska: 'Hello there. Any word on the food?'
[21:02] Wolfbane: (What type of Challenge?)
[21:03] Shadowcaller: (He challenges your word.)
[21:04] Shadowcaller: He just gives Aegnor a brief look and then turns to Promise that he apperently sees as the only worthy one in the hut
[21:05] Wolfbane: (Do you have any exact words for the challenge?)
[21:05] Murska: Aegnor notes that. It doesn't seem that the elf/wolfen society is that tight-knit.
[21:06] Shadowcaller: (Not really, its bodylanguage sort of.)
[21:06] Shadowcaller: *body language
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "You are lying," He says in wolfen
[21:08] Murska: Aegnor slides his hand a bit closer to a dagger under his clothes.
[21:08] Wolfbane: Promise stands and bares his teeth slightly. "You doubt our word?"
[21:09] Shadowcaller: He sniffs in the air "You smell wrong, I am here to challenge your word." He says, showing his theeths
[21:09] Shadowcaller: (if he wins, you are lying, if you wins, you are telling the truth.)
[21:10] Happy: Hope doesn't understand Wolfen, but knows enough of the body language to understand her mate has been challenged.
[21:13] Wolfbane: Promise bares his teeth even more. "Then let us find a better place to prove my word."
[21:14] Shadowcaller: The Huge wolfen
[21:14] Shadowcaller: (darn enter key…)
[21:16] Shadowcaller: The huge wolfen grins and asks "Name then, liar? My name is wildborn."
[21:17] Wolfbane: "My name is Promise and /you/ are the liar here."
[21:19] Shadowcaller: Wildborn shrugs, hardly noticeable by a non-wolfen and then turns his back on you, showing that he is not afraid, "Outside." He says and walks out the hut followed by his two guards
[21:20] Wolfbane: Promise follows.
[21:20] Murska: 'And we seem to not be getting any food. After the whole journey here to help these people.' Aegnor says quite loudly in elven.
[21:21] Happy: Hope follows Promise.
[21:21] Shadowcaller: The wolfen, that appears to be under Wildborns command don't seem to care about this
[21:21] Murska: Aegnor goes outside with the rest of them.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Outside the hut there is a small gathering of wolfen, many of them with much more clothes then Wildborn or Promise
[21:23] Happy: Itef stays near Cessie. Simone follows Aegnor.
[21:24] Shadowcaller: Wildborn stands in the middle of the crowd, he snarls again much louder, as a taunt
[21:26] Shadowcaller: The other wolfen don't really appear to fully understand whats going on
[21:27] Wolfbane: Promise responds in kind but adds an insult about his parentage. Specifically about how his mother was the /really/ wild one.
[21:30] Shadowcaller: Wildborn responds with calling ÿou a empty promise, a weak one
[21:30] Happy: (brb dinner. no killing mah mate while I'm away)
[21:32] Murska: 'I assume we will get food after Promise beats this guy, then?'
[21:32] Shadowcaller: Then he positions himself in a fighting pose, waiting for you to attack him
[21:33] Murska: Aegnor examines the stance of Wildborn, trying to find out possible weaknesses and habits.
[21:34] Shadowcaller: (Changing computer, invite me once I return.)
[21:41] Happy: Hope watches closely, prepared to leap in and heal Promise if necessary to save his life.
[21:42] Wolfbane: Promise drops into his fighting stance and starts to circle.
[21:42] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[21:43] Murska: Aegnor sanoo:

Wolfbane sanoo:
Promise drops into his fighting stance and starts to circle.

[21:45] Shadowcaller: Aegnor can see that Wildborn have lowered himself a bit, not standing at his true length, he have a aggresive defence, ready to lash out at any moment
[21:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /What is this? Why are you two fighting? What is this supposed to prove?/
[21:45] Happy: Helena to Cessie: /Should I stop them?/
[21:46] Wolfbane: Promise fakes a mistep.
[21:46] Shadowcaller: Wildborn follows Promise with his gaze, ready to strike
[21:46] Shadowcaller: /Yes!/
[21:47] Happy: Itef stands between Cessie and the most dangerous looking of the Wolfen.
[21:47] Wolfbane: Promise moves forward to swing at quite slower than he actually is to decieve Wildborn.
[21:48] Wolfbane: /I have to win or none of the Wolfen will believe that we are here to help./
[21:48] Wolfbane: /He challenged our word/
[21:48] Shadowcaller: He retreats back two steps, still keeping the defensive
[21:48] Happy: Helena: /Which one should I strike down?/
[21:49] Happy: /I cannot tell who is at fault./
[21:49] Wolfbane: /If we don't do this, we will not be trusted./ Promise follows through with another swipe, still moving slower than he is.
[21:49] Murska: Aegnor draws on his experience of different combat styles to study Wildborn. He tries to see the styles he's prepared for, the kinds of things he has faced and how experienced he is.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: /…what? How exactly are you going to strike them down?/
[21:51] Happy: /Lightning./
[21:51] Shadowcaller: Wildborn appears to be using a mix of combat styles, most likely some type of homebrew, or he is not actually aware of that he is suing them, just slef-trained
[21:51] Shadowcaller: *self
[21:53] Shadowcaller: Wildborn retreats back again, he appears to be trying to learn your style
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /Can't you just stop them in any other way?/
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /Not death./
[21:54] Happy: /I could sent Itef to step between them. /
[21:54] Shadowcaller: /Don't do that, maybe I can cast hold person…/
[21:55] Shadowcaller: *using
[21:55] Wolfbane: Promise retreats a step back and tries to do a slow sweeping kick, not really expecting to hit him.
[21:56] Shadowcaller: You don't Wildborn is avoiding you at the moment, seemingly unsure where to place you
[21:57] Happy: Helena: /No! They might target you if you do!/
[21:57] Murska: Aegnor uses the mental connection to Cessie, telling her what he has learned of Wildborn's style and urging her to relay it to Promise.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie to Aegnor: /I dopn't want them to fight, we need to stop this before someone gets hurt./
[21:58] Wolfbane: Promise starts to move to a tribal beat that he was trained to, picking up speed as he goes. His movements seem random.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: 'don't
[22:00] Shadowcaller: Wildborn lowers himself even more, getting into a deeper defensive position, not retreating back anymore
[22:01] Murska: /He's been challenged. It's a Wolfen thing, we can't just stop it./
[22:02] Happy: Hope is watching closely.
[22:04] Wolfbane: Promise darts forward suddenly in mid step and swings his claws towards Wildborn's. Dropping his guard while doing so.
[22:04] Shadowcaller: /Why not? This wolfen is not their leader anyway./
[22:05] Murska: /But if we interfere, we'll have 'lost' and we'll probably be attacked. I heard something about that Wolfen claiming we lie./
[22:06] Shadowcaller: Wildborn lashes out, he strikes, aiming for Promises ribs
[22:08] Wolfbane: Promise willingly takes the blow, using its momentum to help him spin, stopping his previous attack, and turns it into an elbow strike aimed for his face.
[22:10] Happy: /Cessie?/
[22:10] Shadowcaller: You can feel yourself hit Wildborn, but also how his claws strikes your ribs lightly, Wildborn quickly retreats back, he and you are bleeding a bit
[22:10] Shadowcaller: /I don't know… don't do anything Helena./
[22:12] Happy: /If you're sure…/
[22:13] Wolfbane: Promise doesn't give Wildborn an inch and quickly follows through with a sweeping kick aimed at the knees.
[22:15] Shadowcaller: Wildborn quickly retreats backwards, avoiding the low strikes, he seems to be looking for a momentum
[22:15] Shadowcaller: /Aegnor… are you sure about this?/
[22:15] Murska: /If you interfere, you'll just put us all in danger. I believe in Wolfbane, he can beat this one./
[22:16] Murska: (*promise
[22:16] Murska: (darnit :P)
[22:17] Wolfbane: Promise moves forward a step before leaping backwards. He starts to fall back into his rhythm.
[22:18] Murska: (I wish I'll get to duel with Aegnor some day. :P)
[22:18] Murska: (He'll totally confuse the hell out of his opponent.)
[22:19] Shadowcaller: WIldborn steps forward, leaning to his right side
[22:21] Shadowcaller: His guard is wide open
[22:23] Shadowcaller: You can see a few elves in the crowd, among them the speaker that don't look so amused
[22:26] Wolfbane: Promise recognizes it as a trap and moves like he is going to strike.
[22:27] Shadowcaller: Wildborn lashes out again, this time not so low
[22:28] Wolfbane: Promise dives into a roll to avoid the blow and tries to deliver a kick to his back.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: You hit Wildborn, but its not enough to bring him down, he just falls foward a bit and then steadies himself again, snarling
[22:31] Shadowcaller: He almost sits on the ground now, turned against you, like he is ready to leap
[22:34] Wolfbane: Promise quickly stands and goes back into his fighting dance.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: WIldborn appears to make a decision, he steps up, into his full length, Aegnor can tell that he have chnaged his style
[22:36] Shadowcaller: He walks toward Promise
[22:37] Shadowcaller: *changed
[22:38] Wolfbane: (Peacefully, or aggressively?)
[22:39] Shadowcaller: (Aggresive.)
[22:42] Wolfbane: Promise keeps up his movements for a second before roaring. He leaps at Wildborn, claws ready.
[22:43] Shadowcaller: Wildborn goes aggresive, he charges against the leaping Promise with all his might
[22:44] Happy: Hope is very tense, watching
[22:44] Wolfbane: Promise shifts his arms so his right elbow leads his body.
[22:47] Shadowcaller: You and WIldborn met, you can feel his head ram into your chest, you embrace him hitting his head with your claws, you can feel yourself lose your breath, a sharp pain can be felt in your chest
[22:48] Shadowcaller: You both land on the ground, you still clinging on Wildborns head
[22:52] Wolfbane: Promise shifts himself and bites down onto Wildborn's neck. He starts to apply pressure.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: Wildborn presses his head against you, but howls as you bite him, it feels like he is trying to crush you against the ground, his arms reaching around your waist
[22:55] Wolfbane: Promise digs his claws into Wildborn's sides and keeps up the pressure on his neck.
[22:57] Shadowcaller: Suddnely a deep voice comes from everywhere "ENOUGH!" Promise can feel his body not able to move anymore, and Wildborns body feels as limp as his
[22:57] Shadowcaller: *suddenly
[22:58] Happy: Hope rushes to Promise's side.
[22:58] Murska: 'Right, now that that's done, what about that food?'
[22:59] Shadowcaller: A elf in what Cessie would regonize as a arch-wizard robe have appeared in the middle of the circle, everyone can feel a great force coming from him, much like when Iname appeared
[23:00] Happy: (Does Helena recognize him?)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (The fighing circle that is.)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (she dose.)
[23:00] Happy: /That's Reorn./
[23:00] Happy: Hope tries to pull Promise free and treat his wounds.
[23:02] Shadowcaller: The elf looks briefly at the fighters, Promise can soon feel his strength return, Wildborn rises himself off the ground, gives Promise an angry look at then leaves the circle
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Promises wounds seems to heal by themselves
[23:03] Wolfbane: Promise stands up and nods at Hope before looking at the newcomer.
[23:03] Shadowcaller: "What is this? Who are these people?" His voices echoes, clearly magically enchanted
[23:03] Shadowcaller: All wolfen falls down on their knees, as dose the elves
[23:03] Murska: 'What's wrong with the internal communication of this place…' Aegnor mutters to himself.
[23:04] Happy: Simone kneels. Neither Hope nor Itef kneel.
[23:04] Wolfbane: (brb, have to go to dinner)
[23:04] Shadowcaller: (That will be explained)
[23:04] Wolfbane: Promise kneels
[23:04] Wolfbane: Nevermind
[23:04] Murska: Aegnor doesn't.
[23:04] Wolfbane: Whatever
[23:04] Wolfbane: I have to go
[23:04] Wolfbane: Promise is probably insulted about the fight ending though
[23:05] Shadowcaller: (Um, okay, see you then, we are not going to far off.)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: *too
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "I will not allow death's here, we are all a people and we will stick together."
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "I have specifically forbidden fights to the deaths, yet you ignore me?"
[23:07] Shadowcaller: The wolfen looks a bit ashamed
[23:08] Murska: Aegnor observes.
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Now… if we have cleared that up, Nia said we had visitors."
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "Elar? Is that you name?" He looks at Aegnor
[23:10] Murska: 'Yup.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: You can feel a presence in your mind
[23:10] Murska: I block my mind the best I can. But then, Elar really is one of his names.
[23:11] Shadowcaller: Hope can also feel a presence in her mind, as can everyone else.
[23:11] Happy: Helena tries to protect their minds
[23:12] Happy: Itef's mind can't be read at all by Reorn.
[23:12] Murska: Cessie's protected aswell
[23:13] Shadowcaller: He looks around, and notices Itef "Who are you? Who do you serve?"
[23:13] Happy: "I am Itef, the Servant of Helena."
[23:16] Shadowcaller: Reorn looks suprised, almost shocked "…Helena?"
[23:17] Happy: "Yes. She heard of your ascension and sent me to make contact."
[23:18] Shadowcaller: "Where is she? I must speak with her."
[23:22] Happy: An illusion of Helena appears next to Itef. "Reorn, my darling. It's been a long time."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "Helena…" He bows, "I didn't think you had survived.."
[23:23] Happy: "But you saw to it, did you not? With the Sovereign's Orb you made for me?"
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "The humans have destroyed a lot of beautiful things in this world, the Sovereign's Orb would just be another thing to count…"
[23:27] Happy: "And you know how I love beautiful things." A pause. "This Legion of yours. Is it beautiful?"
[23:28] Shadowcaller: "You know of it?" He looks sligthy taken aback
[23:28] Happy: (brb still hungry)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (okay.)
[23:29] Happy: (although now that I look, dinner was 2 hours ago. so i guess it's more like hungry again -.-)
[23:29] Shadowcaller: (I never eat before I go to bed…)
[23:32] Wolfbane: Promise tries to calm himself down from the fight.
[23:32] Shadowcaller: (I thougth you needed to go?)
[23:33] Happy: (I eat whenever I'm hungry, because I'm not hungry enough)
[23:33] Shadowcaller: *thought
[23:33] Happy: "Of course I know of it," she says carelessly.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "It is the only way…"
[23:35] Happy: "Your work then? You learned a lot since I last saw you then."
[23:35] Happy: (repeating words :P)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Learned a lot? Well I have changed, and yes the legion is my work, but can we not speak of nicer things? There is so much I need to tell you…"
[23:39] Happy: Helena to Cessie: /Then my former lover is the creator of the abomination. Are you sure it will be destroyed when he dies?/
[23:40] Shadowcaller: /If he is the channeler, he either needs to stop what he is doing, or die. Thats our only options./
[23:41] Happy: Helena: /He won't stop. I know him too well./
[23:42] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /Are you sure you can't convince him? You know him./
[23:42] Happy: /If you wish me to try, I will./
[23:43] Shadowcaller: /I don't wish to kill your loved ones../
[23:43] Happy: "Perhaps you can arrange for better hospitality than my followers have yet been shown?" She looks disdainfully at the combat ring.
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "I have been very busy Helena, I didn't know they were send by you…"
[23:45] Happy: "And now that you do?"
[23:45] Shadowcaller: The wolfen leaves the area slowly
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "I will take care of them of course, I would never dream of hurting your servants my love, its just hard to keep things under control until our people and the wolfen really have united."
[23:49] Shadowcaller: A few elfs, lead by Nia comes bearing cooked food, its quite simple with potatoes, eggs and chicken
[23:50] Murska: And who's Nia? :P
[23:51] Shadowcaller: The elves appear nervous in Reorns presence, but they serve each one of you
[23:51] Happy: (have they taken us anywhere else?)
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (The speaker…)
[23:52] Happy: (My prey? O.o?)
[23:52] Shadowcaller: (They have not, everything is huts anyway.)
[23:52] Shadowcaller: (she is still in the same distance as before.)
[23:52] Happy: (Nia is the spirit speaker?)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: (No, he is the speaker of Reorn)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: (Dman two confusing titles.)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: *damn
[23:53] Happy: (priest?)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: (Better.)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: (Lets go with that.)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: Nia is the Priest of Reorn
[23:58] Happy: Helena sits on the ground and takes a plate, using illusions to appear to eat. She isn't trying to fool Reorn, merely to show acceptance of his hospitality.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: Reorn: "Tell me… how is your life going Helena? Do you have many worshippers?" He smiles at her
[00:00] Happy: Helena smiles. "A lady never tells, my darling Reorn."
[00:00] Murska: Aegnor takes his share of the food and eats, appearing unconcerned about the people/beings present.
[00:01] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears to be trying to melt into the background
[00:02] Happy: Itef remains close to Cessie. Hope remains near Promise. Simone near Aegnor. (and why are all of my characters following others around? -.-)
[00:02] Wolfbane: Promise takes a little food but not much.
[00:03] Happy: Simone eats a lot, like she usually does.
[00:06] Shadowcaller: Reorn: "Well, this is our first meeting in a very long time… I suppose we both have changed a lot."
[00:07] Happy: "You didn't used to be so anti-human. What changed?"
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "I hope we can get to know each other again Helena, a lot is going to change soon enough."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "…You never saw a singel human in your life Helena."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "What do you know about them?"
[00:08] Happy: "I've been ascended far longer than I was alive."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: He appears pefectly calm
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Of course, but you see things in a very different way when you are alive."
[00:09] Happy: (who is around us?)
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (A few elves, not armed.)
[00:09] Happy: "When alive, all I cared for was my kingdom."
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "As did I, the difference is, I had to see it destroyed."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "Imagine, everything you ever loved washed away, eradicated by some monster…"
[00:13] Murska: (…)
[00:13] Happy: "I can imagine it," she says.
[00:13] Murska: Pretty much Aegnor's reaction, there. :P
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "But thats not why I am here, we rebuilded after all, but even after peace was won, the huns didn't leave us alone."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (huns=humans.)
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "But neither am I here for revenge, I mearly wish to rebuild that what was once lost."
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "And to do that, something have to be removed first,history repeats itself."
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "The humans did it with us, we do it with the humans, it won't be the darkes thing done in history."
[00:18] Shadowcaller: darkest
[00:19] Happy: "It's an ugly solution, Reorn. You know how much I dislike that." Helena's illusory form frowns prettily.
[00:21] Shadowcaller: "Think it as a last desperate measure of a war Helena, in a war you do everything to beat your enemy."
[00:21] Murska: Aegnor is eating while listening to the conversation.
[00:22] Shadowcaller: "They killed us, we kill them, that is the sad truth of war."
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "The humans would have done the same thing with us if the situation had been reversed."
[00:24] Happy: "We fought wars together for my kingdom. We never exterminated."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "The huns have just not noticed that the war never ended, our kingdom is still there Helena, but right now we don't have a army to defend it with, so we need to use other measures."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "The humans can counter the legion… eventually, I do not wish to kill their entire race."
[00:27] Happy: "And when they do find a way to counter the legion, how do you expect the people here to survive the backlash?"
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "The humans won't survive no, their lives will be the price for our and the wolfens freedom."
[00:28] Wolfbane: (Is this all in Elven?)
[00:28] Happy: "You contradict yourself."
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (nope, common.)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: "How do you mean Helena?"
[00:30] Happy: "First you say you don't wish to kill their entire race, and then that they won't survive. Which is it?"
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "The humans ion THIS area won't survive, the humans as a race will."
[00:30] Murska: (I think he mistook 'the people here' to mean 'the humans of Kyou'
[00:30] Shadowcaller: *in
[00:31] Happy: "And what of the people of Enumon?"
[00:33] Shadowcaller: "Golliain, thats its name now, this will not longer carry a human name of dirt."
[00:33] Happy: "And what will become of them when the humans fight back?"
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "They won't, all they will see is a legion consuming them, they won't see our peoples connection to it."
[00:35] Shadowcaller: "When they finally can destroy it, we can build a new kingdom here, wolfen and elves, side by side."
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /Aegnor, do you think you could help Helena convince him? I can say everything you say to me to her./
[00:38] Happy: "Is there no other way I can persuade you to leave off this ugliness?" she says, giving a seductive smile at Reorn.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: /Promise… any advices?/
[00:39] Murska: /I don't know if he can be convinced… But wouldn't the humans notice the elves and the wolfen not being attacked and then taking over the area where the Legion appeared?/
[00:39] Wolfbane: /I don't know know. I'm barely keeping myself from attacking him as is. He'd doom everyone./
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Cessie tells everything Promise and Aegnor said to her to Helena
[00:42] Shadowcaller: He can't look at her directly, looking a bit ashamed "Helena… this is something I have sacrificed a lot for, I have worked for it for years, I can't stop now."
[00:43] Happy: "Of course you can," she says soothingly. "Perhaps you couldn't have when you were alone, but things are different now."
[00:45] Shadowcaller: "Helena… the elven people are fading, we live shorter lives, we have been reduced to thieves and prostitutes, the human rapes out woman and kills our men, sells our children into slavery."
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "They took the names of the wolfen and made them move into their towns, as animals of labor."
[00:46] Happy: "We can protect them from that. Create a new kingdom where they can be safe. I can send my servants here to search out the elves and wolfen in the cities and lead them to freedom."
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "The humans would see that as stealing their "rightful" property, they would hunt them down…"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "Only the spirits can prevent them turning this town into a slave town too."
[00:48] Happy: "And why must they remain here? The town is not the land. The town is the people."
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "And if the people is broken? If we have no where to go? The humans always follow us, wherever we turn, we are like cattle to be sold, elven and wolfen slaves catch a much higher price on the slave market…"
[00:53] Happy: "Your act would pur our people in more danger."
[00:53] Murska: /I'm sure we could fend off slavers if we're organized enough./
[00:54] Shadowcaller: (To whom?)
[00:54] Happy: "With two gods, we can fend off slavers."
[00:55] Murska: (To Cessie, I assume. But it seems that Helena already thought of that.)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (lets say she said it to Helena…)
[00:55] Happy: (Cessie is transferring to Helena, right?)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (she is.)
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "Yes, this town maybe, but what of the ones already captured? What of the wolfen reservations? How about the elves born inprisoned? Should we just accept that?"
[00:59] Shadowcaller: *imprisoned
[00:59] Happy: /Cessie, I don't think it's working/
[00:59] Murska: /Once we have a safe haven for elves and wolfen, we can start saving them and gathering them there./
[01:00] Happy: "Once we have a safe haven for elves and wolfen, we can start sending in small guerilla teams to rescue them and gather them in our new home."
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "The humans guard thier property with zeal, if a "wild" elf or wolfen would even come close to a human town they would be seen… how would they break into the fortified towns of the humans? They would hardly be able to enter the first gate."
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "And besides… their spirit is broken."
[01:03] Murska: /We can easily disguise ourselves./
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "There was rebellions in the past, but now… my people have just given up."
[01:04] Happy: "No, you have given up."
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "See these people around you, these are the few faithful, the others can't be trusted."
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "They would never do a dangerous mission…"
[01:05] Happy: Helena stands. "The others are still my people!"
[01:06] Shadowcaller: "But they ahve given up Helena, they would even try to stop a rebellion, they are born slaves now, nothing remains of our pride.."
[01:06] Shadowcaller: *have
[01:07] Murska: /And how would his plan help them any more than ours?/
[01:08] Happy: "And how does your Legion protect them? They would die with the humans they lived among."
[01:09] Shadowcaller: "The legion would only consume humans, as the one in the past only consumed elves, only by killing the masters and the slaves finally be free."
[01:10] Shadowcaller: *can the slaves
[01:10] Happy: "THAT's your plan? And somehow the humans won't recognize that the elves and wolfen are being spared and destroy them?!"
[01:11] Shadowcaller: "They would need to rebuild, they would hardly notice the things that have survived, we didn't have strength to make vengence upon the humans after their legion."
[01:13] Murska: /But the knowledge on Legions is out there, even the humans must have it somewhere. After all, Cessie has a book on them./
[01:13] Happy: "And when the humans make a Legion of their own? You already know they possess the knowledge."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "WHen they do, it will take out the one we made."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "Thats the only way they know of."
[01:16] Happy: "They'll make two, one to destroy your Legion, and one for vengeance. They have more resources than we do, more gods than the two of us. You cannot win an existential war against the humans!" She is incandescent with righteous conviction, though this is still her illusion and not her manifested form.
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "Ha! I know the plots of humans, they would think it was one of their own, some rogue necromancer perhaps? They don't think we or the wolven would be strong enough to lift a finger against them." Reorn remains calm and caculation despite Helenas outburst.
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "They have many enemies, other kingdoms, other magicans… all more likely then some rebellious elves."
[01:19] Happy: /Cessie, we must fight him. I see no other way./
[01:20] Happy: /Lend me your strength so that I can manifest. Tell your allies it is time to act./
[01:21] Shadowcaller: /I… okay, I will, just say stop./
[01:21] Shadowcaller: /It is time to act./
[01:22] Murska: Aegnor contacts Iname once he hears this. /Reorn, the necromancer who we have to stop, is right there./
[01:23] Wolfbane: /Good. I could barely keep myself from doing so before./
[01:24] Murska: Aegnor, having finished eating, slowly stands up and stretches.
[01:24] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: The risen one? You never told us… very well, I will try./
[01:24] Shadowcaller: Cessie gives up some of her energy
[01:25] Murska: As if by chance, Aegnor takes a few steps, positioning himself near Cessie.
[01:25] Shadowcaller: She appears weakened
[01:26] Shadowcaller: A great energy can be felt, Iname is manifesting
[01:26] Happy: Everyone feels the power as Helena's illusory form becomes manifest.
[01:26] Wolfbane: Promise sets his plate aside and stands himself. He holds out a paw to help Hope up.
[01:26] Happy: Hope is at her feet even before he can reach for her.
[01:27] Murska: Aegnor helps Cessie up and starts leading her farther.
[01:27] Happy: Simone hides.
[01:27] Happy: "She is protected," Itef says to Aegnor. He remains close to Cessie as well.
[01:29] Happy: "I will not allow this, Reorn. Stop the Legion now or be destroyed." /Helena
[01:29] Shadowcaller: Reorn: "Is that so Helena?" Reorn fades away
[01:29] Shadowcaller: The elves around you look paniced
[01:30] Happy: Helena addresses all of the inhabitants of the village. They are all able to hear her. "Reorn is no friend to you. I am Helena and I have returned as your protector."
[01:31] Murska: Aegnor attempts to gather Promise, Hope and Simone and position the group into somewhere not in very close vicinity to any of the gods or beings of godlike strength, but still close enough to Helena that they can see her.
[01:31] Happy: (Can Helena tell where Reorn is?)
[01:32] Murska: (And what about Iname?)
[01:32] Shadowcaller: Inames second aspect comes into the world
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[01:33] Shadowcaller: (she can, he is now at the same location as Hopes prey is, some distance outside the village, in a swamp.)
[01:34] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: The risen one… its starting./
[01:35] Happy: Helena flies in that direction, like an arrow.
[01:35] Shadowcaller: She comes across countless of elven and wolfen spirits, there is endless horde of them all gathering at that location
[01:36] Happy: to Cessie: /He's outside the village now, in a swamp/
[01:36] Happy: /Guarded by spirits/
[01:36] Shadowcaller: She can hardly hear you /Yes…I..will/
[01:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie weakly tells everyone this
[01:37] Murska: Aegnor supports her the best he can.
[01:37] Wolfbane: "Guys, get on." Promise thinks of looking like a Giant Wolf. One that was a common legend in his tribe. Fenrir. Large enough to carry people.
[01:37] Wolfbane: (Can I do that?)
[01:38] Shadowcaller: I guess he becomes it then, darn easily abused mask:P
[01:38] Happy: Hope climbs on at once.
[01:38] Murska: Aegnor helps Cessie aboard the giant wolf, I guess. :P
[01:38] Happy: Simone and Itef as well.
[01:39] Happy: (And Iname? Where is he/she/it/they?)
[01:39] Shadowcaller: (he is that large? o.O)
[01:39] Shadowcaller: (You are not keeping that mask mister:P)
[01:39] Wolfbane: (Fenrir, wolf of legend? Very large. Don't worry, this is a one time abuse)
[01:39] Shadowcaller: Iname is going to same direction Helena is, but much slower
[01:39] Wolfbane: Promise follows.
[01:40] Wolfbane: (I almost chose a dragon, be happy I didn't. :P)
[01:40] Happy: Helena to spirits: "You would lead our people to their destruction."
[01:40] Shadowcaller: They are mindless, lost in hatred and rage
[01:40] Shadowcaller: They don't even respond
[01:42] Shadowcaller: The spirits are everywhere keeping anyone from going near the location
[01:42] Shadowcaller: Of course, its like a invisible wall for you
[01:42] Shadowcaller: Helena can see them, but not you
[01:43] Happy: Hope: /Kuori, I cannot reach my prey./
[01:43] Shadowcaller: There is no respond, these spirits seems to bbe blocking the connection
[01:43] Shadowcaller: *be
[01:44] Murska: Does Iname do something to all the spirits?
[01:45] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: These spirits are sacrifical lambs… they are lead to that human city./
[01:45] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: They are all about to be used as fuel for the legion./
[01:45] Murska: /Can you make them give us way?/
[01:46] Happy: Helena blasts the spirit wall with divine power. "BEGONE!"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: /Second voice: We open a path…/
[01:47] Shadowcaller: The spirits seems to replace one another, every time Helena and Iname banish them, more of them take their place
[01:47] Shadowcaller: But soon enough, they retreat back to something
[01:47] Shadowcaller: The way is open
[01:48] Happy: Helena rushes through.
[01:48] Shadowcaller: She can see a cabin, outside is Reorn, he appears to be ready to fight
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "The legion is soon born Helena… its already too late."
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "All these spirits are going to fuel it."
[01:50] Happy: Helena tries to gather the essense of the spirits to herself.
[01:50] Shadowcaller: The spirits have tighly gathered around something, inside the cabin
[01:51] Happy: Helena blasts the cabin with lightning.
[01:51] Shadowcaller: It appears to be protected,a shield deflects the lighting
[01:51] Happy: Hope leaps down from the wolf and charges towards her prey (in the cabin?)
[01:52] Shadowcaller: It is
[01:52] Murska: Aegnor goes after her, wielding the spirit knife.
[01:52] Shadowcaller: Reorn sends a way of energy toward Hope and Aegnor
[01:53] Shadowcaller: *wave
[01:53] Happy: Itef leaps in front of them and absorbs it.
[01:53] Murska: Aegnor will stab any spirit that gets close, his every strike aimed as what would to a human being be a fatal wound.
[01:53] Shadowcaller: (meat shield goths?:P)
[01:54] Happy: (Helena told him to protect the party.)
[01:54] Happy: Itef is slammed back by the energy.
[01:54] Wolfbane: Promise waits until Cessie is on the ground before changing back and taking off the mask. "Cessie? Are you going to be okay?"
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "I will wait here…"
[01:55] Happy: "I guard her," Simone says, pulling out her knife.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: She sits down on the ground, clearly powerless
[01:55] Happy: Simone stands over her
[01:56] Wolfbane: Promise pockets the mask. "Will you be fine here?"
[01:56] Shadowcaller: Inside the cabin you can see a young elf woman, by elven standards she would be 17-18
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "Yes.. I just need to rest.. go, Promise, go and help them.."
[01:57] Happy: (we're inside?)
[01:57] Shadowcaller: She is laying on the ground
[01:57] Shadowcaller: (you are and thats the elf girl laying ont eh ground/floor.)
[01:57] Shadowcaller: 'on the
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Around her moves the countless spirits
[01:58] Wolfbane: Promise takes off his cloak and puts it on her. "We'll be back." He unslings his spear and goes to help any way he can.
[01:58] Happy: Hope leaps forward and attempts to stab her with her sword and a blast of holy energy.
[01:58] Murska: Aegnor keeps killing spirits.
[01:59] Shadowcaller: The spirits dies, only to protect her
[01:59] Happy: Helena keeps trying to gather the dying spirits rather than let them be absorbed by the legion.
[01:59] Shadowcaller: She appears to be in a sleep-link condition, she don't even appear to be aware of whats going on
[01:59] Shadowcaller: *sleep-like
[02:00] Shadowcaller: "D-dad?" She says as the spirits keeps dying around her
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Hope and Aegnor can feel a strong pull, they are drawn back outside the cabin again
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Reorn: "You have done far too much now…"
[02:01] Murska: Are Iname/Helena making any progress?
[02:02] Happy: (And what did Hope's attack do?)
[02:02] Murska: (Kill spirits, I think.)
[02:02] Shadowcaller: (it killed a lot of spirtits.)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Iname appears to be busy with Reorn at the moment
[02:03] Happy: And Helena?
[02:03] Shadowcaller: *spirits
[02:03] Murska: So Aegnor can't get to any more spirits to kill?
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Reorn is trying to fight her too, at the same time
[02:04] Shadowcaller: Reorn is using all his energy now, he is trying to hold Hope and Aegnor back
[02:04] Murska: Where is he?
[02:04] Murska: And he's holding them away from the cabin, right?
[02:04] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[02:04] Wolfbane: Has Promise gotten close to them?
[02:04] Happy: Hope continues struggling to reach the cabin, blasting with holy power whenever she can.
[02:05] Shadowcaller: You are in the fight between three god-like beings
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Promise is near Hope and Aegnor yes
[02:05] Murska: Aegnor pushes against the power holding him from the cabin while moving sideways so he's closer to Reorn.
[02:06] Happy: (Is Helena able to draw any power from the killed spirits?)
[02:06] Wolfbane: Promise tries to push his way into the cabin also.
[02:06] Shadowcaller: (Not really, I would be enraged that Reorn is usinf her peoples spirits to fuel that thing…)
[02:06] Shadowcaller: *using
[02:07] Happy: (That's why she's trying to take their spirits first)
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Promise enters the cabin, the elven girl still lies on the floor, unmoving
[02:07] Shadowcaller: The spirits are all around her
[02:08] Shadowcaller: (Well, gods can't gather energy from spirits can they? That would be like killing them.)
[02:09] Happy: (She's trying to catch she spirits as they die.)
[02:09] Wolfbane: (So, the girl is being protected against anything hostile?)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (She is.)
[02:10] Murska: Aegnor leaps at Reorn and stabs him with the knife.
[02:10] Wolfbane: Promise sheaths his spear and tries to walk calmly towards the girl.
[02:10] Happy: Hope keeps struggling to reach the girl
[02:11] Shadowcaller: "Foolish mortal! I will eradicate you!" Reorn is clearly in pain as you stab him, he loses the grip of Hope
[02:11] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is pushed back
[02:11] Murska: Towards what exactly?
[02:12] Shadowcaller: Right into a tree
[02:12] Murska: Aegnor shields himself with his arms.
[02:12] Happy: Hope rushes forward to her prey. She gives Promise a look to prepare him to attack together.
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Promise walks up to the girl, no spirits are attacking him
[02:15] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels some ribs break as he smashes against the tree
[02:15] Murska: /Not again…/
[02:16] Murska: Aegnor tries to struggle to his feet.
[02:16] Shadowcaller: The spirits are attacking Hope now, as Reorn is pressed by the attacks from Iname and Helena
[02:16] Wolfbane: "Let me try to wake her first, she may be under control like we were." He tries to shake the girl awake.
[02:17] Happy: Hope blasts the spirits with holy energy
[02:18] Shadowcaller: The girl is mumbeling something in elven, she slowly opens her eyes, it looks like whatever she is doing, it takes a lot of her energy
[02:18] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feel that he can stand, but it hurts to move
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "Who- who are you?" She asks in a very weak voice
[02:19] Murska: He ignores the pain the best he can and draws his elven bow, shooting an arrow at Reorn.
[02:19] Wolfbane: (In elven?)
[02:19] Shadowcaller: (no common.)
[02:19] Murska: (Oo)
[02:19] Happy: "Kill her," Hope hisses at Promise.
[02:20] Wolfbane: "Do you know what you are doing here?"
[02:20] Shadowcaller: Reorn is backing away, but appears to be shileded against arrows
[02:21] Wolfbane: He looks at Hope. "Would you have wanted someone to kill us while we were mind controlled, or at least check that we were first?"
[02:22] Happy: Itef walks towards Aegnor, looking injured. He touches Aegnor, transferring the broken ribs to himself, and slumps down by the tree. "Go. You are protected," he says weakly.
[02:22] Happy: "She is prey," Hope says, her voice sounding feral, even to her mate.
[02:23] Murska: Aegnor blinks, then places the bow on his back and wields the knife again, moving towards the cabin.
[02:23] Wolfbane: "We are /all/ prey to something sooner or later."
[02:24] Happy: (the girl is my prey, right?)
[02:24] Happy: (as well as the legion? where is the legion anyway?)
[02:27] Happy: *pokes SC?*
[02:29] * moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes has left the conversation.
[02:30] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[02:31] Happy: [02:21] Wolfbane: He looks at Hope. "Would you have wanted someone to kill us while we were mind controlled, or at least check that we were first?"
[02:22] Happy: Itef walks towards Aegnor, looking injured. He touches Aegnor, transferring the broken ribs to himself, and slumps down by the tree. "Go. You are protected," he says weakly.
[02:22] Happy: "She is prey," Hope says, her voice sounding feral, even to her mate.
[02:23] Murska: Aegnor blinks, then places the bow on his back and wields the knife again, moving towards the cabin.
[02:23] Wolfbane: "We are /all/ prey to something sooner or later."
[02:24] Happy: (the girl is my prey, right?)
[02:24] Happy: (as well as the legion? where is the legion anyway?)
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (Sorry…)
[02:32] Shadowcaller: (The girl is your prey, the legion is back in Kyou.)
[02:33] Murska: Aegnor sneaks towards Reorn from behind.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: The girl blinks a few times, she looks quite confused
[02:34] Shadowcaller: /Both voices in unison: This ends here./
[02:34] Wolfbane: Promise tries again. "Do you know why you are here or what you are doing?"
[02:35] Shadowcaller: "They want me to move them… they all want to kill…"
[02:36] Happy: Helena reaches for Reorn, trying to pull him into her arms.
[02:36] Wolfbane: "Why are you helping them?"
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Reorn can't resist much longer "This can't end this way!"
[02:36] Murska: Aegnor switches his grip on the knife and strikes with all his strength, brutally jamming it to the back of Reorn's neck.
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, I only do…"
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Reorn Screams in pain and fades for a second, Helena manages to pull him into her arms
[02:39] Shadowcaller: The dagger still jammed into his neck
[02:39] Wolfbane: "Stop. Don't listen to them. They only wish to hurt you."
[02:39] Shadowcaller: The souls don't seems to like this, they push Promise back from the girl
[02:40] Wolfbane: Promise tries to keep his grip on her shoulder.
[02:40] Happy: "I loved you," Helena says, and kisses him. Then she holds him out in offering to Iname.
[02:41] Wolfbane: "They will only hurt you in the end. What they want you to do will kill /thousands/ of innocent people. Do you want to be responsible for that?"
[02:42] Shadowcaller: "No.." The girl blinks a few times like she is still newly awake,
[02:43] Shadowcaller: Iname suddenly merges, the two becomes one
[02:43] Wolfbane: "Then don't listen to them. Stop doing what they want."
[02:43] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[02:43] Shadowcaller: The souls moans in agony, they appear to lose their grip
[02:44] Shadowcaller: /One voice: It ends and it beggins…/
[02:45] Shadowcaller: They lash out, Reorn screams, and then he is no more
[02:45] Shadowcaller: The spirits distants themnsleves from the girl, fleeong in all directions
[02:45] Shadowcaller: *fleeing
[02:46] Shadowcaller: The girl collapses once again
[02:47] Wolfbane: Promise keeps himself between Hope and the girl. "If she starts this again, I will gladly let you kill her.
[02:47] Wolfbane: "
[02:47] Happy: And the legion?
[02:47] Wolfbane: "I don't believe she had any choice in the matter."
[02:47] Murska: (Another ended hunt… Kuori's not gonna be happy. :P)
[02:48] Shadowcaller: The legion is rapidly losing power, the souls are free from its grip
[02:48] Wolfbane: (No, I suppose not)
[02:49] Shadowcaller: Its soon gone, all the souls it was made of returning to the places they are supposed to be
[02:49] Happy: Hope closes her eyes. "Ai?"
[02:50] Shadowcaller: There is no response, but she can feel a weak presence, just for a moment
[02:51] Shadowcaller: Iname returns to its second form /Second voice: It is done./
[02:52] Murska: /Thank you./
[02:52] Happy: Helena bows to Iname, very weakened. "Thank you, Kami."
[02:52] Murska: (What happened to the knife?)
[02:53] Happy: Hope sheaths her sword, unbuckles it, and hands it to Promise.
[02:53] Murska: Aegnor returns to Cessie.
[02:53] Shadowcaller: (the knife lies at the location Reorn died.)
[02:53] Happy: She looks to see if Promise is wounded.
[02:53] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still very weal
[02:53] Shadowcaller: *weak
[02:54] Murska: Aegnor hugs her. 'Reorn is gone.'
[02:54] Shadowcaller: /First voice: We have done what we promised./
[02:54] Wolfbane: "I'm fine, Hope. But we have to go back to check on Cessie and Simone."
[02:55] Shadowcaller: /First voice: Now we need to return, we should not interfere with such things./
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Iname starts to return to the spirit world
[02:55] Happy: Hope goes to the others. "Is anyone injured?"
[02:55] Murska: /I believe we shall manage from now on./
[02:56] Shadowcaller: (and there ended the Kyou story-line
[02:56] Wolfbane: Promise picks up the elf girl and goes to check the others.
[02:57] Wolfbane: Unless Hope killed her while he wasn't looking.
[02:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Its sad that he needed to die… killing a god…"
[02:58] Happy: Hope gave Promise her sword
[02:58] Murska: 'It's better than the alternative.'
[02:58] Murska: (Someone pick up that knife.)
[02:59] Shadowcaller: (maybe she choke her to death?:P)
[02:59] Happy: Helena picks up the knife, and walks towards her Servant. He is lying on the ground bleeding, and where he bleeds, red flowers grow.
[03:00] Murska: (Pity about him, he wasn't such a bad guy.)
[03:00] Wolfbane: Promise looks at the sword and shakes his head. "I trust you. If she wakes up and if she tries to do this again. I'll gladly step aside."
[03:01] Shadowcaller: (Who‘the servant?)
[03:01] Shadowcaller: *?
[03:02] Happy: "If you want her to live, take it," Hope says to Promise.
[03:02] Murska: (yeah)
[03:03] Happy: Helena picks up her Servant, carrying him as if he were a small child, and begins walking back to the village.
[03:03] Happy: (simply updated)
[03:04] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still weakened, she can not really keep herself focused
[03:04] Wolfbane: Promise sighs and takes the sword grudgingly. "Thank you."
[03:06] Wolfbane: (Hehehe, nice update)
[03:06] Happy: When Helena reaches them, she stops, looking at Cessie in return. "You will recover, won’t you?" She looks less like the goddess protector and more like the attention starved girl in the orb.
[03:07] Shadowcaller: "I hope so…"
[03:08] Murska: 'You will.' Aegnor is still holding her.
[03:09] Shadowcaller: She lets herself relax in Aegnors arms
[03:09] Happy: Helena closes her eyes for a moment, and Cessie should feel some of her power return to her. "I'm sorry, I can't return it all. I have so much to do."
[03:10] Happy: Hope sees the wounded Servant. "Let me look at him. I can help."
[03:11] Shadowcaller: Cessie still looks quite tired "I'm okay here" She says, letting Aegnor hold her
[03:12] Happy: "No," Itef says weakly, and smiles up at Helena. She looks down at him, her gaze maternal now rather than romantic. "We've had so long together this time," she says to him. Then to Hope. "No, there's nothing you can do for him."
[03:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't say anything, its almost as she have managed to fall asleep in Aegnors arms
[03:16] Happy: "Are you returning to Golliain?"
[03:16] Happy: /Helena
[03:17] Murska: 'I think we should. The villagers are probably quite confused right now, too.'
[03:18] Happy: (Where is the girl?)
[03:18] Shadowcaller: Still in Promises arms I guess
[03:18] Murska: (yeah)
[03:18] Wolfbane: (Yeah)
[03:19] Wolfbane: (Or over his shoulder)
[03:19] Happy: Hope walks on the far side of the party from Promise.
[03:19] Wolfbane: (Probably the second one)
[03:19] Murska: Aegnor gently picks Cessie up and carries her to the village.
[03:20] Happy: Simone walks along with them, neither carrying anyone nor being carried :P
[03:20] Happy: /Myubi? It's over now. I am thinking we are safe now./
[03:21] Shadowcaller: /Its over? What happend?/
[03:21] Wolfbane: Promise occaisonally glances over at Hope with an apologetic look on his face.
[03:21] Happy: /A god was killed. And I think the Legion was destroyed, but I'm not sure./ "Was the Legion destroyed?"
[03:22] Happy: Hope gives Promise an apologetic smile as well, but her prey sense still burns.
[03:22] Shadowcaller: /A risen one, killed? How did that happend?/
[03:23] Wolfbane: Promise breathes a sigh of relief.
[03:23] Happy: /I don't know yet. I just wanting to tell you I am safe now. I will tell you the rest./
[03:24] Shadowcaller: /I'm glad you are, the mortal world is far too dangerous, you must promise me to always be careful Simone./
[03:32] Murska: Meanwhile, they reach the village.
[03:33] Happy: Helena carries Itef to the center of Gollian.
[03:36] Happy: The elves and wolfen begin to gather, drawn by the prescence of a manifested goddess who is becoming with each step more and more ethereally beautiful.
[03:40] Happy: when she reaches the center of the village, where the speech was given earlier, she carefully sets Itef down as if there were an altar in front of her. And his body lies on the air, his chest weakly rising and falling.
[03:43] Happy: Helena speaks, her voice reaching everyone. "The one who called himself your god is dead. I am your Protector now. I am Helena of Gallian, and I will let no harm come to you."
[03:45] Shadowcaller: A elf you know as Nia comes from the crowd. "You murdered him… this false goddess lies, she is nothing but a cheap harlot and a murderer!"
[03:47] Happy: Helena's eyes flash. "He was judged and found unworthy. The path he was leading you on would have carried you to destruction."
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "Judged? By whom? The path he lead us was the one of freedom and glory, it is the only way!"
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "You will soon realize that you whore! He was the only one who could save us…"
[03:49] Shadowcaller: "All is doomed now… our races are doomed…"
[03:49] Happy: "Silence!"
[03:49] Happy: Nia should find himself unable to speak.
[03:49] Shadowcaller: he is
[03:52] Happy: "My Servant Itef has given his life for you. His death will bring a rebirth to you."
[03:54] Happy: She places her hands on Itef's chest, and he takes his last breath. Each of the residents of Gallian feels a tiny spark of hope and blessing.
[03:58] Happy: "I am with you always," she says. She looks around the crowd and calls forward a Wolfen and an elven woman. She touches each of them on the top of the head, and each become more beautiful. "These are my priestesses. They will guide you and lead you in the days to come. Through them, I will always be with you."
[03:58] Happy: Her manifested form fades and disappears.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: Nia still looks quite angry "This… won't end here.."
[03:59] Happy: "Cast him out," the Wolfen female commands.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: He disappears into the crowd
[04:03] Murska: Aegnor tries to find somewhere for Cessie to rest.
[04:05] Happy: The Wolfen grab Nia and rough him up a bit before dragging him to the edge of the village. One of them tries to take the orb from him.
[04:06] Shadowcaller: "You will all be punished..*cough*..we have allies!
[04:06] Happy: The Elven priestess tells someone to lead the party to a hut.
[04:08] Wolfbane: Promise follows whoever leads them into the hut.
[04:09] Happy: "Are you taking care of Allyria?" one of the elves asks, rather confused about matters.
[04:10] Happy: In the town center, Itef's body slowly sinks to the ground, and then into it, leaving behind a mound of greenery and red flowers.
[04:11] Wolfbane: "Was she a member of this village?"
[04:11] Happy: "She and her father lived outside the village for many years. Her father is dead now."
[04:12] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "She is in my care for now. We have things to discuss with her when she wakes up."
[04:13] Happy: "Very well. Please tell us if you need anything."
[04:13] Happy: The party is left alone, and unguarded.
[04:14] Murska: Aegnor carefully lays Cessie down on a bed if there is one.
[04:14] Happy: Just mats of straw on the ground
[04:14] Murska: One of those then, I guess.
[04:16] Wolfbane: Promise lays the girl on one of the mats. "When she wakes up, we'll see if she is prey." He looks at Hope. "I'm sorry."
[04:18] Happy: "Don't say that. My blood tells me to kill, but my heart knows you are right." Hope wraps her arms around Promise from behind, her cheek resting on his mane. "Ai would have wanted me to spare her."
[04:20] Murska: Aegnor gets up and sighs. 'Okay, I guess that's done…'
[04:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie is sleeping peacefully
[04:20] Shadowcaller: Her chest moving up and down
[04:23] Murska: 'I guess everyone's okay, then?'
[04:24] Wolfbane: Promise turns around and hugs her. "Thank you. If you think it would be better, we could always tie her up just in case."
[04:25] Happy: "Her power is through the spirits. Tying her up won't change that. No, let her rest for now." She sighs. "I can't take a watch though. I shouldn't be armed around her, especially alone."
[04:26] Wolfbane: Promise nuzzles her. "I could take it with you."
[04:29] Happy: Hope smiles. "Aegnor, get some rest. We'll take the first watch."
[04:31] Murska: 'Sure.'
[04:32] Murska: What's the time, anyway.
[04:32] Happy: 4.30
[04:32] Murska: In-game. :P
[04:33] Wolfbane: Probably early evening, late afternoon, but with what happened, they need the rest.
[04:33] Wolfbane: Especially after not sleeping the night before
[04:34] Murska: Aegnor removes most of his equipment and settles down in a sitting position near Cessie. He soon trances.
[04:36] Wolfbane: Promise sets his spear and Hope's sword against a wall.
[04:37] Happy: Simone curls up, instantly asleep despite the rustic surroundings. It seems having walls and a roof is enough psychological support for her.
[04:39] Happy: And as no one in the village dares to attack the godslayers, the night passes. And we should probably end it there.
[04:39] Wolfbane: Promise looks at his pouch. He shudders and tosses that near the weapons too before going back to Hope.
