Kyou 21

[18:58] Happy: so, everone should designate who inherites their favor from Helios if they die in the Deep Realm :P
[18:59] Murska: Cessie or, if she doesn't come out either, Hope.
[18:59] Shadowcaller: Bah, its only the outer shell of it
[18:59] Shadowcaller: Nothing too dangerous there
[19:00] Shadowcaller: 29 players? o.O
[19:00] Happy: the power of the PM
[19:00] Shadowcaller: Hmm… must make up new roles >.>
[19:00] Shadowcaller: :P
[19:00] Happy: I believe I used a very persuasive argument
[19:00] Shadowcaller: And that was?
[19:00] Happy: Which was: Sign up for Kyou II? Please? :)
[19:00] Happy: with a link
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Oh, thats a very good argument, not too nagging
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Prepared?
[19:01] Shadowcaller: I think I have got an idea for the Kyou opening scene now…
[19:02] Shadowcaller: Or at least a death scene later in the game.
[19:02] Murska: :P
[19:05] Shadowcaller: Want to start up?
[19:05] Shadowcaller: Happy is going to narrate the village while I do the deep realm
[19:07] Happy: Simone names Promise as her beneficiary.
[19:09] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at her. "I very much doubt that will be needed."
[19:10] Shadowcaller: "Well, we have no idea what is waiting for us there…"
[19:11] Happy: "Maybe I earning my name," Simone says to Promise, grinning. She's very excited about this.
[19:11] Wolfbane: "Whatever is there, I'm sure you all will be able to take care of it." Promise grins back. "I'm sure you will."
[19:13] Murska: Aegnor keeps himself busy by rearranging some of his equipment so the Godslayer is easily accessible but still not one of the weapons visible. He then takes off the other longbow from his back. 'Hmm. Why am I still carrying this thing around?'
[19:13] Murska: He turns to Hope. 'Want it?'
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (Noo! You will have use for it.)
[19:14] Murska: (For two longbows?)
[19:14] Murska: (Oo)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (Oh, sorry.)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (Thought you meant your elven long bow.)
[19:14] Murska: (Heh. :P)
[19:14] Murska: (Noticed it from my equipment list awhile ago but haven't gotten rid of the old one yet.)
[19:15] Happy: "Sure, I guess," Hope says.
[19:15] Murska: (Haha. Epic spot to end the Kyou 20-chapter.)
[19:15] Murska: (Now if we'd somehow stop the IF there…)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (You mean when you go to Japan and Wolfy goes home+)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: *?
[19:18] Murska: (Nah, the whole story'd end in 'Rocks fall, everyone dies')
[19:18] Murska: (and on such a nice number, too. 20.)
[19:18] Murska: (:P)
[19:18] Shadowcaller: (Like yesterday when you tortured the fourth wall?)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: "So… should we go then? I hate to delay things like these…"
[19:20] Murska: (Now, who has the spyglass again, btw?)
[19:20] Murska: (SC: Read yesterday's transcript's end)
[19:20] Murska: (Ending the whole thing there. :P)
[19:20] Happy: Aegnor has it
[19:21] Murska: fixed my equipment list, I think
[19:21] Shadowcaller: Helios mutters something about the fourth wall
[19:22] Murska: 'Yeah, I don't think we'll be prepared to go where no-one has gone before any more than what we are already.'
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Then step into the circle."
[19:23] Happy: "You do not have permission to probe their minds," Helena says.
[19:23] Murska: Aegnor experiences a deja-vu. :P
[19:23] Happy: (Not that it matters, since he's already been in Aegnors and Simone's recently :P)
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "Of course not."
[19:24] Happy: Simone steps right into the circle without hesitation.
[19:24] Shadowcaller: Helios: "The others?"
[19:24] Murska: Aegnor steps in.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie steps in only after Aegnor entered
[19:25] Happy: "Be safe," Hope says.
[19:25] Wolfbane: "Good luck!"
[19:26] Shadowcaller: Shadows wash over the Cessie, Aegnor and Simone
[19:26] Shadowcaller: Soon they are gone
[19:27] Shadowcaller: /So, it has begun…/
[19:27] Happy: (should i do the 'back in Gallion' stuff in a separate window?)
[19:27] Shadowcaller: Aegnor is the first one to regain consciousness
[19:27] Shadowcaller: (sure.)
[19:28] Murska: (I want in that window, though. :P)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: Strange sensations overwhelms all his senses
[19:29] Murska: He attempts to fight back into a level of awareness about himself and his surroundings that would allow him to function effectively.
[19:30] Shadowcaller: Strange colors fills your vision as you re-open your eyes - you are first blinded by their brightness
[19:30] Shadowcaller: You blink a few times until your eyes have slowly adjusted to the strange lights
[19:32] Murska: A small part of Aegnor records all of this into his mind to be molded into a story. After all, it's something unique.
[19:32] Murska: A much larger part of Aegnor searches around for Cessie.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: You are standing on top of a huge floating rock, its floating in mid-nothingness
[19:33] Shadowcaller: Cessie and Simone still lies on the ground, consciousness
[19:33] Murska: /This orb is rather… big./
[19:33] Murska: Aegnor tries to wake the others up.
[19:34] Shadowcaller: When you move, you come over a strangely shaped stone…
[19:34] Shadowcaller: The orb
[19:34] Murska: :P
[19:35] Shadowcaller: (Hm?)
[19:35] Murska: (It wasn't directly under my feet after all, then. :P)
[19:35] Shadowcaller: (did you look at the doll, ball example?)
[19:35] Murska: (Would've been funny.)
[19:36] Murska: (I only caught a bit about being able to pick it up without taking a single step)
[19:36] Shadowcaller: (I never said you took a step.)
[19:36] Murska: (Still would've been funny. Anyway.)
[19:36] Murska: Aegnor proceeds in waking the others up.
[19:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie awakes, slowly, she appears to have a hard time adjusting to the light of this realm
[19:38] Shadowcaller: "Uh…"
[19:39] Murska: 'Awaken, and proudly be where no man has been before… and possibly never will, since we didn't happen to bring one with us.'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "Thats.. a rather narrow concept of a man."
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "You only count human males as men then?"
[19:40] Murska: 'In the purposes of this particular joke, yes.'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, she think of the strangest things:P)
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Now… where by all the gods… this place is unreal."
[19:41] Murska: Aegnor tries to get Simone to wake up.
[19:42] Murska: (:P)
[19:43] Happy: (I'm waiting for SC to tell me she wakes up :P)
[19:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around at the strange world you have ended up in "What in the world…"
[19:43] Shadowcaller: Simone wakes up
[19:44] Happy: Simone sits up directly and looks around, wide eyed.
[19:45] Happy: Then after absorbing the colors around them, she looks at the ground for the book and the orb. In that order.
[19:45] Murska: Aegnor, meanwhile, examines the surroundings more carefully.
[19:45] Shadowcaller: far in the distance there is a enormous eye looking at you
[19:45] Murska: (Green?)
[19:46] Shadowcaller: (it changes colors:P)
[19:46] Murska: (IMPOSTER)
[19:46] Murska: (Can we kill it? :P)
[19:46] Shadowcaller: (Be my guest…)
[19:47] Murska: (As in, 'are we capable of' :P)
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Cessie is looking directly at the huge eye, in the strange multi-colored landscape there appears to be more rocks floating around
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Like tiny platt-forms
[19:48] Shadowcaller: Everything here appears to be stuck in mid air
[19:48] Murska: Aegnor searches for white sky.
[19:48] Happy: Simone is still looking for the book
[19:49] Shadowcaller: Close to the eye you can see something white
[19:49] Murska: Of course. -.-
[19:49] Shadowcaller: Simone finds the book lying in small crack
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (You wanted to kill it remember?:P)
[19:49] Murska: Aegnor goes pick up the orb and hand it to Cessie.
[19:49] Happy: She tries to pick it up without opening it
[19:50] Murska: (No, I just asked if we 'can'. 'Can' in the meaning of 'being capable of'. ;))
[19:50] Shadowcaller: She dose so, when she touches it, she can feel her hand grow cold
[19:51] Happy: She tries wrapping it in a length of saree. Does that keep the coldness off?
[19:51] Shadowcaller: It dose, she can no longer feel the warmth draining feeling when she touches it
[19:51] Happy: She examines the book then, though without opening it or touching it directly.
[19:53] Shadowcaller: The book looks strangely ordinary, its cover is brown without any images or markings of any kind
[19:53] Shadowcaller: It looks quite new actually
[19:53] Happy: (this is sort of like putting a kid in front of a big shiny red button and telling him not to push it)
[19:53] Happy: How large is the book?
[19:53] Shadowcaller: Not very, a bit larger then a pocket-book
[19:54] Murska: (and meanwhile, Aegnor picks up the orb and hands it to Cessie, as I mentioned.)
[19:54] Happy: She wraps it up in saree cloth and places it in a pocket.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: SHe absent-mindly accepts it, still enthralled by this strange realm
[19:55] Happy: After putting the book away, Simone looks around. When she sees the eye, she stares at it.
[19:56] Shadowcaller: The eye is unblinking, looking directly back at her
[19:56] Happy: "Who are you?" she whispers.
[19:56] Shadowcaller: There is no response
[19:56] Murska: Aegnor looks around for anything else of note, trying to generate some kind of a 'map' of the area in his mind. Luckily, his mind is good at imagining shapes in three dimensions.
[19:58] Shadowcaller: It looks like, if you fell of the rock, you would fall forever, down into the darkness that is at the bottom of the realm
[19:58] Happy: Simone tries to float.
[19:59] Shadowcaller: There are a lot of rocks floating around here thought
[19:59] Shadowcaller: She fails, she can feel a strange push-back if she jumps up
[20:00] Shadowcaller: In the distance a gurgeling sound can be heard
[20:00] Happy: (same direction as the eye, or a different direction?)
[20:01] Murska: Aegnor examines the rock they're standing on.
[20:01] Shadowcaller: You currently stand on one of the largest rocks in the area, but around it are a endless number of smaller rocks
[20:01] Murska: Aegnor attempts to break off a tiny piece of the rock.
[20:02] Shadowcaller: You do so, it feels cool to touch
[20:02] Murska: Does it float?
[20:02] Shadowcaller: If you release it into the air yes
[20:02] Happy: [20:00] Shadowcaller: In the distance a gurgeling sound can be heard
[20:00] Happy: (same direction as the eye, or a different direction?)
[20:03] Shadowcaller: (another direction.)
[20:03] Happy: "So Helios wrong about us floating," Simone says. "Wonder if he wrong about other stuff too?"
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "He didn't really say much…"
[20:04] Happy: "He say a lot about the sky colors."
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (there are a lot of colors in the sky.)
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (the whiteness is close to the eye.)
[20:05] Happy: (What color is the sky above us?)
[20:05] Shadowcaller: (green.)
[20:05] Murska: (What about the sky if we move directly towards the white?)
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (many different ones, red, green, yellow, blue, purple…)
[20:07] Murska: 'Right.' Aegnor thinks for a moment. 'I guess we'd better get going if we want to be out of here.'
[20:07] Happy: "How we getting there if we can't float? Can we make rock move?"
[20:07] Murska: Is there any rocks near enough to jump to?
[20:07] Shadowcaller: (they are.)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: (there are.)
[20:08] Murska: Aegnor walks to a rock very close to the one they're on in the direction they're going to, that is, I'd assume, the nearest yellow patch of sky in the direction of the white one.
[20:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie manages to look away from the differnet colored sky a moment and follows Aegnor "So… how do we get out of here?"
[20:10] Murska: Is the rock close enough to step to without having to jump?
[20:10] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[20:10] Murska: Aegnor attempts to board a new rock then.
[20:10] Murska: Carefully.
[20:11] Happy: Simone follows, her agility making her think the task is easy
[20:12] Shadowcaller: You carefully steps on a rock, it temporary floats down a bit, as its adjusting itself to your weight, then it floats up to its old position again
[20:12] Shadowcaller: "We could just fly…"
[20:13] Murska: 'Well, I don't know how exactly that would work in this enviroment. But it's an option, sure.'
[20:13] Murska: How does the gravity seem to work?
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (you feel a bit heavier, as there would be stronger gravity here, yet the rocks appears completly unaffected by gravity.)
[20:16] Murska: Aegnor attempts to break off another tiny piece of rock and push it downwards with his hands.
[20:16] Murska: He takes appropriate precautions and doesn't place a hand directly above it, instead using both of his hands on the sides of it
[20:17] Shadowcaller: It is pushed downward, then once yuo let it go, it stays in mid-air.
[20:17] Murska: so if it somehow jumps upwards with large force, there won't be a hole.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: *you
[20:17] Murska: So it doesn't return to where it was?
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[20:18] Murska: Aegnor tries to push it into movement towards the larger rock
[20:19] Shadowcaller: it is pushed into the direction of the larger rock, gently bumping into it
[20:20] Murska: Does it appear to lose momentum?
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (once you release it, it completly loses momentum.)
[20:21] Murska: Hm, so, it stops the instant I'm not touching it?
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[20:22] Murska: Aegnor attempts to grab a rock barely large enough to stand on and pull it towards the one he is now.
[20:23] Shadowcaller: You do so, it moves much like the last rock you moved, the moment you are not touching it, it loses momentum complelty
[20:23] Shadowcaller: *completly
[20:23] Murska: Aegnor moves on to that rock and attempts to pull the larger rock towards him instead.
[20:24] Shadowcaller: "What are you doing?"
[20:24] Murska: 'Experimenting.'
[20:24] Happy: "Finding out how we are to be moving here."
[20:24] Shadowcaller: You do so, it acts exactly like the last rock
[20:24] Happy: Simone tries just wishing the rock they are standing on to move.
[20:24] Murska: So I can pull even the great large rock towards me while standing on a tiny piece?
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (in practice yes, the rocks appears to be wightless to you, Simone and Cessie.)
[20:25] Murska: Hmm.
[20:26] Murska: Aegnor pushes a rock towards where they want to go, then moves onto it and pulls the rock everyone is on towards him.
[20:26] Shadowcaller: You do so
[20:26] Shadowcaller: "How… wow."
[20:27] Murska: 'Okay, at least we shouldn't get stuck.'
[20:27] Shadowcaller: "How did you do that?"
[20:27] Murska: 'The rocks don't seem to weigh anything.'
[20:28] Murska: (Heh. Totally an engineer's approach to the problem. :P)
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "Thats… useful, so we can stay on this rock all the time then?"
[20:29] Murska: 'Yeah, although I suppose it isn't the fastest possible way onward. But having some space to move around in case of trouble is good.'
[20:29] Murska: Aegnor glances at the sky.
[20:30] Shadowcaller: The eye is still there, to each person it looks like its lookign directly at you
[20:31] Happy: "We should looking for yellow sky," Simone says.
[20:31] Murska: Aegnor attempts to move everyone to a patch of yellow sky before deciding on further course
[20:31] Shadowcaller: You do so
[20:31] Shadowcaller: You can hear another gurgeling noise
[20:31] Murska: From where?
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (its impossible to hear exactly what direction its coming from.)
[20:32] Murska: Roughly, then?
[20:32] Happy: If the eye is north
[20:33] Shadowcaller: South
[20:34] Murska: Aegnor attempts to see and/or sense in other means, such as spiritsense, anything from that direction.
[20:34] Shadowcaller: The moment you concentrate you can hear countless of strange and outright bizzare noises
[20:35] Shadowcaller: You immedeatly feel sick, just hearing them
[20:36] Murska: Aegnor attempts to block them out. 'Ugh.'
[20:36] Shadowcaller: "What? What is it?" She looks at you worried
[20:37] Murska: 'I…' Aegnor clears his head. 'I'm okay. I just don't like this place.'
[20:37] Murska: 'Let's plot a course.'
[20:38] Shadowcaller: "Toward that eye I suppose… the white sky is there after all."
[20:38] Shadowcaller: "I don't think either of us like it thought."
[20:39] Happy: Simone seems to. Well, not like it exactly. But she's fascinated.
[20:39] Murska: Aegnor attempts to look for a way that would give them maximum coverage under yellow sky while going towards the white sky, prefarably past the eye from a safe-ish distance.
[20:40] Shadowcaller: As you move closer to the eye and the white sky Cessie exclaims "I think I saw something move there…"
[20:40] Murska: 'Where?'
[20:41] Shadowcaller: She points at a something in the distance, at first it looks like just another rock, but then you can see that its moving…
[20:41] Happy: Towards us?
[20:41] Shadowcaller: (no.)
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Soon you realize that more of the "rocks" are also moving
[20:42] Happy: (brb food
[20:43] Shadowcaller: You realize that its huge slug-like creatures
[20:43] Murska: Aegnor replots his course to stay clear of those, but still modifying it as little as possible.
[20:44] Shadowcaller: The moment of your rock appears to stirr some of the closest of these strange creatures, they slowly starts to move toward you
[20:45] Murska: 'Uh. Maybe we should abandon ship.'
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "To what exactly?"
[20:45] Happy: "Maybe we floating if we not on rock?"
[20:45] Shadowcaller: (they are not very large, like very small dogs.)
[20:45] Shadowcaller: (large gor a slug that is.)
[20:45] Shadowcaller: *for
[20:46] Murska: 'I wouldn't want to test that without some sort of a safeguard, Simone.'
[20:46] Murska: 'Switching to a different rock, I guess?'
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Which one? We could just kill these creaures…"
[20:47] Shadowcaller: *creatures
[20:47] Murska: 'If we can. And then, what if something larger notices the fight?'
[20:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, I cna't see a rock large enough for all of us."
[20:48] Shadowcaller: *can't
[20:49] Happy: Simone takes off one of the pieces of her saree and ties it around herself. "You hold on, and I step off."
[20:50] Murska: 'I'm all for experimenting but wouldn't there be a better time for it?'
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "Or I could just cast fly on you…"
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "That would be much easier."
[20:50] Happy: "Magic might get us noticed."
[20:50] Murska: 'So might any number of other things. For all I know, we've already been noticed.'
[20:51] Shadowcaller: The slugs are really close now
[20:51] Murska: Aegnor moves to the other side of the rock from them, hopefully with the others.
[20:51] Happy: Simone draps the scarf back around her to be out of her way, and takes out her knife.
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie follows you, carefully watching the slugs
[20:52] Murska: Aegnor draws Godslayer and another dagger.
[20:52] Murska: 'So, decisions, quickly.'
[20:52] Shadowcaller: "I do whatever you want."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: "Magic is what I would use."
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "I don't see why we aren't flying already."
[20:54] Murska: 'Because previously this way of movement provided us with a less-risky way forwards.' Aegnor smiles at her. 'But then, it seems that flying will be a good strategy. More slugs would just notice this.'
[20:55] Shadowcaller: "They don't appear very dangerous really.. just disgusting."
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "I don't know what else inhabitants this plane, but I think we can take on these things."
[20:56] Murska: 'I wouldn't judge anything here based on appearance. And something might notice a fight.'
[20:56] Murska: What are the slugs doing?
[20:56] Shadowcaller: (they are just moving closer to you.)
[20:56] Murska: (So not closer to the rock?)
[20:56] Murska: (But actually aiming at us?)
[20:57] Happy: "I do whatever you say."
[20:57] Shadowcaller: (aiming at a certain person actually…)
[20:57] Shadowcaller: *actually
[20:57] Murska: (yeah right, Simone. :P)
[20:57] Shadowcaller: (No, Cessie.)
[20:57] Murska: (No, that was in answer to her statement)
[20:57] Shadowcaller: (She is under a geas you know >.>)
[20:58] Murska: 'Well, it appears they're aiming towards you so we probably have to kill them anyway.'
[20:58] Happy: In this situation? Yes, Simone will do whatever you say. :P
[20:59] Happy: "Maybe we should fly…"
[20:59] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes another look at the slugs that now appears to be moving closer to her, she makes a gesture and a fireball burns the closest slugs to ash
[20:59] Shadowcaller: The rock you are standing on shocks voilently
[21:00] Shadowcaller: Suddenly, you can see many more of the "rocks" starting to move
[21:00] Murska: '…yeah.'
[21:00] Murska: How fast do they move?
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (a bit faster then before.)
[21:01] Murska: Faster than fly?
[21:01] Murska: The spell
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (no.)
[21:01] Murska: 'Okay, I think it's about time we try flying.'
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "I agree… we should have done this a long time ago."
[21:01] Shadowcaller: She casts fly on herself, Aegnor and Simone
[21:02] Shadowcaller: The creatures appears to react to this too
[21:02] Shadowcaller: The gurgeling noise can be heard once again
[21:02] Murska: 'They seem to react to magic. Let's get away.'
[21:02] Murska: Aegnor attempts to see if the spell works
[21:02] Happy: (Can they fly?)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (you can.)
[21:02] Murska: and then leads the group away using the plotted course
[21:02] Shadowcaller: The slugs follows you slowly
[21:03] Happy: Simone follows Aegnor closely.
[21:03] Shadowcaller: There are about 23 of them you would guess
[21:03] Murska: 'I think we'd better limit the usage of magic if possible. We don't want more attention.'
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "It got us out of this right? They are quite slow after all…"
[21:04] Murska: 'Well, what if all the rocks are those things? Or if something stronger reacts to magic aswell?'
[21:05] Shadowcaller: "I be careful with the magic, just in life or death situations then?"
[21:06] Shadowcaller: The slugs are losing on you
[21:06] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[21:07] Shadowcaller: But as you fly, more of the "stones" shocks and then starts moving toward you
[21:08] Shadowcaller: *shakes
[21:08] Murska: Aegnor calculates their movement speed and dodges them while keeping to the course, trying to use as many vertical maneuvers as possible so they wouldn't have to stray to other types of sky.
[21:09] Shadowcaller: The slugs are not very agile, they appears to have a problem of turning around
[21:10] Shadowcaller: You easily avoid them, but just being near them fills you with dread
[21:12] Shadowcaller: This close you can see that they are covered in a water-like liquid, the very air around them feels moist
[21:13] Shadowcaller: You escape these ones too, in the distance you can see a whole landscape flating in the air
[21:13] Shadowcaller: *floating
[21:14] Shadowcaller: You can see a tiny figure moving around on it
[21:14] Murska: Is it in our path?
[21:14] Shadowcaller: (it is.)
[21:14] Murska: Hmf. So, is it blocking the white sky from our sight? What about the eye?
[21:15] Murska: Is the spyglass shaking? :P
[21:15] Shadowcaller: (its not blocking the white or the eye, the landscape is just on the way to it.)
[21:15] Shadowcaller: (It is.)
[21:16] Murska: Whoa. Hostile. Not good.
[21:16] Shadowcaller: (well, the slugs…)
[21:16] Murska: (yeah, but they might've just been curious or something. :P)
[21:16] Murska: (Or wanting to feed on magic)
[21:16] Shadowcaller: (I would say that is hostile.)
[21:17] Happy: Simone looks at the landscape carefully, trying to make it out.
[21:17] Shadowcaller: (they want to be near you, thats enough for it to shake.)
[21:17] Murska: ('kay)
[21:18] Murska: Aegnor, while flying, has sheathed Godslayer and slipped the other dagger back into his clothing.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: The landscape appears to be filled with very strange trees, in the distance you can see mountains, otherwise its quite flat
[21:18] Murska: No way to dodge it, I assume?
[21:18] Shadowcaller: (dodge a landscape?:P)
[21:18] Murska: (yup :P)
[21:18] Murska: (It's floating in the whatever this stuff is)(
[21:18] Murska: (just like us)
[21:18] Happy: And waht does the figure look like?
[21:19] Shadowcaller: (you can't make it out yet, too far away.)
[21:19] Murska: We proceed towards the white sky, then.
[21:19] Shadowcaller: (Its moving around among the strange trees.)
[21:19] Shadowcaller: You do so
[21:20] Shadowcaller: As you come closer, you can see that the trees have mouths sticking out, opening and closing
[21:20] Happy: Simone yelps in terror, stifling it before it becomes a scream.
[21:21] Shadowcaller: The figure appears to notice this
[21:21] Shadowcaller: It starts to move toward you, whatever it is, its not human
[21:24] Happy: (leaving the landscape?)
[21:24] Shadowcaller: (we need to move over it to come to the white sky.)
[21:24] Murska: How fast does it move?
[21:25] Shadowcaller: Faster then you
[21:25] Murska: Oh well. We keep on our course, trying to examine it as it comes closer.
[21:26] Shadowcaller: It looks like this:
[21:26] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[21:26] Murska: Ew.
[21:27] Shadowcaller: (and there are the slugs and the trees too.)
[21:27] Happy: (Yeah)
[21:27] Shadowcaller: The strange thing moves toward you, it appears to be able to fly aswell
[21:28] Murska: Does the spyglass react any more to that?
[21:29] Shadowcaller: It shakes just as before
[21:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie can't even look at the thing, she is trying to move as far away as possible from it
[21:31] Murska: Since there's no way to avoid it, Aegnor leads them the fastest route towards the white sky.
[21:31] Murska: (Is it also following Cessie?)
[21:31] Shadowcaller: (Its appears to be.)
[21:32] Murska: 'Keep going!' Aegnor positions himself between Cessie and it.
[21:33] Shadowcaller: The creature is constantly moving its arms in a seemingly random pattern
[21:33] Shadowcaller: Its head bends in the direction of Cessie as you try to position yoursefl between her and it
[21:34] Shadowcaller: *yourself
[21:34] Murska: Aegnor releases some of his own magic by singing a verse. He doesn't attempt to affect anything special with it, though.
[21:36] Shadowcaller: The thing makes a gurgeling noise, much like the one you heard earlier, it slows down, its head now turned to you
[21:36] Happy: "Go away!" Simone yells at it.
[21:36] Murska: 'Just get to the white sky. I'll be rearguard!' Aegnor keeps flying between Cessie and the thing.
[21:39] Shadowcaller: The things "head" extends, it cuts off your way to Cessie
[21:40] Murska: Aegnor heads in a different direction, suddenly at full speed. Straight upwards, away from the landscape.
[21:40] Shadowcaller: It appears to be ignoring Simone at the moment
[21:41] Shadowcaller: The creature starts following Aegnor, leaving Simone alone while Cessie is still moving against the whitness
[21:41] Shadowcaller: She suddenly stops and looks behind
[21:42] Murska: Aegnor motions for her to keep going. He pulls out Godslayer.
[21:42] Happy: Simone heads for Cessie, scared to be alone.
[21:42] Shadowcaller: The creature starts gurgeling again as it closes in on Aegnor
[21:43] Murska: Aegnor reaches into the folds of his clothing and grasps the flute, pulling it out. /Worth a try, I suppose./
[21:43] Murska: He plays a fast-paced tune quickly with it.
[21:43] Murska: (not very loudly)
[21:43] Shadowcaller: The sound of the flute can be.. seen
[21:44] Shadowcaller: color comes out of the flute as you play it
[21:44] Shadowcaller: But not of the sort you have ever seen before
[21:45] Murska: (Octarine? :P)
[21:45] Shadowcaller: The things "head" moves back, it appears to be enthralled by the color coming from the flute
[21:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie is moving toward you again
[21:46] Happy: Simone tries to get to Cessie and Aegnor.
[21:46] Murska: Aegnor keeps playing, seeing it's reaction, and floats towards the white sky. 'I've got this under control, just get away.'
[21:46] Murska: (Yes, he had to stop for a second to say that)
[21:47] Shadowcaller: The thing appears to want to follow the color
[21:47] Murska: Can I direct the colour?
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "I'm not leaving you here."
[21:47] Happy: "You not having book. What if we getting there without you and Helios take us home?"
[21:48] Murska: 'I don't think he even spoke the truth about the book being required. He mentioned it only after we said something about leaving without it.'
[21:48] Happy: "We should stay together."
[21:48] Murska: (They're unaffected by the music?)
[21:49] Shadowcaller: (its not functioning as it should be here.)
[21:49] Murska: Aegnor sanoo:
Can I direct the colour?

[21:49] Shadowcaller: (no.)
[21:50] Murska: Where is the colour going then? Spreading around?
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (its just coming from the flute as you play.)
[21:50] Happy: (And if he stops playing?)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (like a straight line from the flute.)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (the color dissapears after a while.)
[21:51] Murska: Aegnor attempts to see if playing more loudly creates more of the colour, allowing it to stay for longer
[21:51] Shadowcaller: It dose, the creatures head is moving toward the color
[21:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears to be waiting for you
[21:53] Happy: Simone is with Cessie. She doesn't want to get very far from the powerful people.
[21:53] Murska: Aegnor stops playing after some loud tones and flies quickly back to the normal course towards the white sky, his route taking him a bit above Cessie. He's hoping the colour distracts the thing.
[21:53] Murska: He motions for them to get going aswell
[21:54] Shadowcaller: She follows you "Can't I just fireball it?"
[21:54] Murska: 'Somehow I get the feeling that we'd better just get away.'
[21:56] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head and you continue, with the thing constantly moving after you, losing speed as it needs to stop once in a while
[21:56] Shadowcaller: The great eye appears to be closer now, as dose the whiteness
[21:56] Murska: What does it do once it reaches some of that colour?
[21:57] Shadowcaller: It just stays there a whilte, the color dissapears once its within the "cloud" of it
[21:58] Happy: Does the eye look like a human eye?
[21:58] Murska: Well, Aegnor keeps creating more clouds periodically while moving.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: (no, it looks pretty much like a certain avatar…)
[21:58] Murska: SAURON! RUN!
[21:58] Happy: gah!
[21:58] Murska: (SC means your turtle eye, I think. :P)
[21:59] Happy: (I'm sure…)
[21:59] Happy: (Simone looks at the eye 'I have the strangest feeling… like maybe that's my father')
[21:59] Shadowcaller: You think you are close to the white sky now, but there is no yellow sky here
[22:00] Shadowcaller: (..)
[22:00] Happy: what colors are there?
[22:00] Murska: Orange?
[22:00] Shadowcaller: Blue, green, purple
[22:00] Murska: Hmm. Blue and purple were unmentioned
[22:00] Murska: And green is bad.
[22:01] Happy: no red?
[22:01] Shadowcaller: (nope.)
[22:01] Shadowcaller: The eye is now red thought
[22:01] Murska: :P
[22:01] Shadowcaller: (Right…)
[22:02] Murska: (The Main Deity is watching over you. Now go with haste.)
[22:03] Murska: Aegnor makes a quick decision and decides on purple sky.
[22:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie quickly follows, still trying to not look at the thing that follows you
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see the exact distance, but you would guess you are quite close to the whiteness not, and the eye
[22:06] Murska: We proceed, then.
[22:06] Happy: Simone is with them
[22:07] Shadowcaller: The eye is almost taking up all of your vision now, its pupil appears larger then the guild hall in Kyou
[22:08] Shadowcaller: The thing continues to move after you, enthralled by the color
[22:08] Happy: Simone continues to stare at it, fascinated.
[22:08] Happy: the eye, not the thing
[22:08] Murska: Aegnor continues to periodically play a couple notes, keeping an eye on the… eye but concentrating on getting them all out of there.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you find yourself in whiteness
[22:09] Shadowcaller: The eye and the deep realm can't even be seen anymore
[22:10] Shadowcaller: But the thing is still there
[22:11] Shadowcaller: /You are in the spirt realm now…/ you can all hear inside your head.
[22:11] Murska: Aegnor gathers the group closer together while still trying to keep away from the thing.
[22:12] Shadowcaller: /Do you have the book? And the rob?/
[22:12] Shadowcaller: *orb
[22:12] Murska: /Yup, now we'd rather like to be away from here before that thing that's following us, you know, catches us./
[22:13] Shadowcaller: /Of course…/ Everything turns black
[22:15] Murska: …aaand are we supposed to react to that?
[22:18] Murska: …and he's gone.
[22:19] Happy: So I guess we look at all the blackness around us :P
[22:19] Murska: After all the colours, it ought to be refreshing.
[22:19] Murska: :P
[22:20] Murska: Aegnor reminds himself to write a song about the colour of music.
[22:20] Shadowcaller: (Was waiting for Happy,but oh well…)
[22:20] Shadowcaller: You reappear in the circle
[22:21] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Well, that was something wasn't it?"
[22:21] Murska: Aegnor quickly steps out, pulling Cessie by the arm aswell.
[22:21] Happy: (I didn't know how to respond to blackness :P)
[22:21] Happy: Simone checks to make sure she still has the book, and then tries to step out.
[22:22] Murska: 'It was… an experience.'
[22:23] Shadowcaller: /The book?/ Simone hears in her head before stepping out.
[22:24] Happy: (Does she still have it?)
[22:24] Murska: (I guess the meeting with Nega wasn't /that/ important, after all. :P)
[22:24] Murska: 'How long has it been?'
[22:24] Shadowcaller: (he have already been there.)
[22:24] Murska: (So he wasn't ready to get us out at any moment?)
[22:24] Murska: (Bastard)
[22:24] Shadowcaller: (he can be with her and do that you know.)
[22:25] Murska: (He said it requires all of his presence)
[22:25] Happy: (Does Simone still have the book?)
[22:25] Shadowcaller: (She dose.)
[22:25] Shadowcaller: (Well, his presence was there, but he could still feel you, due the book.)
[22:26] Happy: Helena's illusion appears. "Cessie? Are you safe? Do you have the orb?"
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "I do…"
[22:26] Murska: I guess Aegnor pulls Cessie out of the ring, then
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "That was veyr wierd."
[22:26] Murska: (What does Helios respond?)
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (you already did that.)
[22:26] Shadowcaller: *very
[22:26] Murska: (I said I attempted to)
[22:26] Murska: (She didn't react)
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (well, she did then.)
[22:27] Shadowcaller: (and Happy is supposed to decide the time you were away.)
[22:27] Happy: (Nobody's asked yet :P)
[22:28] Murska: (I did)
[22:28] Murska: 'How long has it been?'
[22:28] Murska: to helios earlier
[22:28] Happy: "It's still the same day," Helena says.
[22:29] Murska: (You've decided what the orb does already?)
[22:29] Happy: Simone doesn't say anything, just stumbled out of the ring, a little clumsy at the gravity difference.
[22:29] Happy: (damn it. knew we were forgetting something)
[22:33] Murska: Aegnor breathes slowly a couple of times, examining his physical and mental state.
[22:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie had to sit down at the floor, feeling strange after returning from such a place
[22:37] Happy: Simone takes the book out and unwraps the fabric.
[22:38] Murska: Are we tired or hungry or something?
[22:38] Murska: 'How long has it been exactly?'
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "The book… how good it is to see it again."
[22:39] Happy: "It's about an hour until sundown. You were gone for a few hours."
[22:42] Murska: So. Do we feel as though we've actually physically exerted ourselves?
[22:42] Shadowcaller: (HAppy deicides.)
[22:43] Happy: Yes, you all feel physically and mentally exhausted. Especially mentally.
[22:43] Happy: Simone touches the cover of the book again, to see if it still tries to take her heat.
[22:44] Murska: Aegnor was, after all, hauling around a gigantic… rock? slug? whatever. :P
[22:44] Shadowcaller: (it dose.)
[22:44] Murska: 'Well, at least we came back at a fitting time so we can go rest.'
[22:45] Happy: She just sits and looks at it longingly, wanting to open it. (Do you press the shiny red button?!)
[22:45] Murska: (Which isn't actually a button but a monster waiting to eat your hand. :P)
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (I got the bizzare thing going right?)
[22:47] Happy: (What do you mean?)
[22:47] Shadowcaller: (Never mind.)
[22:47] Happy: (Oh, and I'm feeling really sleepy :S)
[22:47] Murska: (Oo)
[22:48] Murska: (I kinda woke up four hours ago)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: (^^)
[22:48] Murska: (I should go live wherever Wolfbane is)
[22:49] Wolfbane: :P
[22:52] Shadowcaller: (Kyou roles coming out once Mino have picked the players he wants to defend.)
[22:53] Murska: Yay
[22:54] Happy: (Is Helios not going nuts because of Simonekeeping the book?)
[22:54] Murska: It's not like we're gonna hand it over anyway.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (He sent it there actually.)
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (Why not?)
[22:54] Murska: Cuz he was a jerk earlier. :P
[22:55] Shadowcaller: (Well, I would not hold into it veyr long >.>)
[22:55] Murska: (I guess there are other buyers. :P)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: *very
[22:55] Happy: (I don't think we want to just set this book loose on the world)
[22:55] Murska: (Yeah. Let's set it loose on another world so we won't run into it later)
