Kyou 24

[19:31] Shadowcaller: The artifacts are still laying on the mud-floor hut, Cessie appears to be the person with most intrest of them right now. But they are dangerous each in their own way, are they worth trading that strange book for?
[19:32] Happy: And Helios just said that Cessie can learn one spell from the necromancy book, as a trial.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (He did.)
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "…okay, I need your options on this."
[19:35] Murska: 'Hm. Well, we should at least gain all we can, I suppose. Should we see what you can learn?'
[19:36] Shadowcaller: "Well… I'm still not sure I want to learn any more necromancy…"
[19:36] Shadowcaller: "Its reasons its forbidden."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: *there are reasons its forbidden
[19:37] Murska: 'I'd trust you with something like that, but of course, it's your call.'
[19:37] Happy: "What are the reasons?" Simone asks.
[19:38] Shadowcaller: "Well… its uses the parts of souls and bodies."
[19:38] Shadowcaller: "The legion was a creation of necromancy."
[19:39] Shadowcaller: She looks doubtful at the book
[19:39] Happy: "That why you so tired that day? Because you gave Miss Helena your soul?" O.O
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "A part of my life force rather."
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "If I gave her my soul I would not have not been able to speak."
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Or do anything except keeping myself alive."
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Bodily functions and such."
[19:42] Happy: "So if you having that necklace, you can doing more necromancy."
[19:42] Shadowcaller: She picks up the book then turns to you, looking at Aegnor. "Isn't there anything you want of these?"
[19:43] Murska: 'I'm thinking that if Helios is willing to trade any of these for the book, that must mean the book is more valuable than any of these.'
[19:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, yes, bur draining the life force of other creatures… that sounds like vampyrism."
[19:43] Shadowcaller: "But its not valuable to us right?"
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "That book is way more dangerous then any of these items, if Helios tells us the truth that is."
[19:45] Happy: "He saying the book needed to go to Deep REalms."
[19:45] Murska: 'Indeed. The fact that Simone'd get to read it is why I'm considering his offer, since it'd be difficult to find someone else to do that for us.'
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Cessie opens the book and flips throught the pages absten-mindly while speaking "Did Helios say what was in that cursed book?"
[19:48] Murska: brb
[19:48] Shadowcaller: *absent-mindly
[19:48] Murska: *absent-mindedly, I think, btw
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I knew there was something wrong, but I could not put my finger on it.)
[19:49] Happy: "He say it all the secrets of the beginning of the world."
[19:50] Murska: back
[19:50] Happy: "Dangerous for mortals."
[19:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks up at Simone "Dangerous knowledge? I never thought he of all gods would say that…"
[19:51] Shadowcaller: "I heard of books that could drive you mad if you read them…"
[19:52] Happy: "But he say I can read it and be safe if he put spell on me."
[19:53] Shadowcaller: "He did?… Well the books have a /very/ strong magical aura, either its a very powerful curse or its something else."
[19:53] Shadowcaller: (Promise can smell evil magic about it.)
[19:54] Wolfbane: Promise wrinkles his nose at the stench "How about evil?"
[19:54] Happy: "It make me cold when I touch it."
[19:54] Murska: 'Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's dangerous.'
[19:54] Murska: *smile'
[19:55] Shadowcaller: "Maybe its not a book at all? It could just be a trap…"
[19:55] Murska: 'Would Helios fall for something like that? And, more importantly, would we care?'
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "A trap for us I mean, he tells Simone she can read it, but then it contains no text."
[19:57] Murska: 'Well, then we'd gain the information that it doesn't contain text along with a magical item, and lose nothing.'
[19:57] Happy: "What use being book with no text? If it has no words, then who cares what we trade for it."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "It speaks I mean, he said its intelligent after all, the book could just be the enchantments."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "Think about it, a necklance its just there to be pretty, a book is only there to be read, but if you give them magic…"
[19:59] Shadowcaller: "Then you don't need them for their orginal purpose anymore."
[19:59] Murska: 'Even then, it'd still be exactly the same amount of use to us, that is, none. It's value lies, to us, in this case, in how much we'll be offered for it. Helios has made an offer, but we have nobody to counter it.'
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "I'm not saying we should not accept the deal, just that Simone might consider to not read that book."
[20:00] Happy: "He saying it contain knowledge. I want to know."
[20:01] Shadowcaller: "Well, dangerous knowledge Simone, something that can get you killed."
[20:01] Murska: 'Well, he has promised she'd be safe, right?'
[20:02] Happy: "He say he can protect me while I read book."
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "…okay, if she wants to read it, then she read it. But we still must decide what artifact to pick."
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "Wonder if we can use our favors to get more then one?"
[20:02] Wolfbane: "Are these the only ones he is offering?"
[20:04] Happy: "These all he show me, but he have giant artifact vault."
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "These might the ones he can afford to lose…"
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "Ask him if he got more artifacts."
[20:06] Happy: /They wanting to know if you having more artifacts./
[20:06] Shadowcaller: /I do, but these are the safest ones. Well, except that mirror, and the wand…/
[20:07] Happy: /and the skull/
[20:07] Shadowcaller: /Eh, it often teleports itself away before doing too much damage./
[20:08] Shadowcaller: /I guess they are looking for more fighter aimed items?/
[20:09] Happy: /Probably./ *mental grimace*
[20:10] Shadowcaller: /Lets see… I got a powerful anti-magical chest armor, freshly decursed from a elven tomb./
[20:11] Shadowcaller: /A clock of time-stop…/
[20:11] Shadowcaller: /A knife of sudden transformation./
[20:12] Shadowcaller: /Would they be intrested in any of these items?/
[20:12] Shadowcaller: /Or should I go on?/
[20:13] Happy: Simone names the items.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "Anything you might be intrested in?"
[20:15] Wolfbane: "Knife of sudden transformation? What does it do?"
[20:15] Happy: /What do knife do?/
[20:15] Happy: (not that Promise needs transformation help)
[20:16] Wolfbane: (It sounded vague, that is why I asked)
[20:16] Murska: (hmf)
[20:16] Murska: (Finland/USA eating my time atm)
[20:16] Shadowcaller: /Every time it hurts someone, it transforms that someone into something…/
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (Bah, your intrested in sport? o.O)
[20:16] Murska: (/Lets see… I got a powerful anti-magical chest armor, freshly decursed from a elven tomb./) Oo :P
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (Can't you look it on the internet?)
[20:17] Murska: (It's family time. It isn't fun to watch unless you can cheer with friends/family)
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (Oh, family time… my family always complains that I'm down here >.>)
[20:18] Murska: (Also, that armour sounds familiar. :P)
[20:18] Shadowcaller: /It can be everything from a chicken to a dragon really./
[20:18] Shadowcaller: (Really?^^)
[20:18] Murska: (Aegnor'd need anti-rib-breaking armour, though, at least in my experience. :P)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (eh, its better then the one you got now.)
[20:20] Wolfbane: (Promise doesn't use armor)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (Why don't wolfen do that anyway?)
[20:22] Shadowcaller: (Your bodies would support heavy armor, while stll making you able to move really fast.)
[20:22] Wolfbane: (Limits movement, and they prefer to show their scars as a sign of honor and rank.)
[20:22] Wolfbane: (Maybe Promise will get armor some day)
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (Eh, the Hyrillians trained wolfen got heavy armor, then again, they have been raised as slaves…)
[20:23] Wolfbane: (/maybe/, but certainly not in the middle of a Wolfen village)
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (True.)
[20:27] Wolfbane: (I take it Simone translated it?)
[20:27] Happy: (yes)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (Of course.)
[20:27] Wolfbane: (Well, tranferred anyways)
[20:28] Wolfbane: Promise shakes his head, "The last thing I would need is something getting /stronger/ when I try to kill it."
[20:29] Shadowcaller: /Its very small chance of that, there are /way/ more types of insects then dragons after all./
[20:30] Happy: "And if we were fighting humans? We couldn't take prisoners if they were turned into animals." /Hope
[20:31] Shadowcaller: /The effect is temporary./
[20:31] Murska: 'Meh. Not interested in that one. Anything else?'
[20:32] Shadowcaller: /So… none of those items were intresting either I guess?/
[20:34] Happy: (clock of time stop?)
[20:34] Murska: (Interesting, but Aegnor won't mention that)
[20:34] Murska: (He wants to hear all he can about possible choices)
[20:35] Happy: (so you're going to make SC invent items all night? ^^)
[20:35] Shadowcaller: /The ring of attraction… the singing spear… the grey club… the green dagger…/
[20:35] Shadowcaller: /…./
[20:35] Murska: (Yup. :P)
[20:35] Happy: (this is your last night, though, isn't it?)
[20:36] Shadowcaller: /The sharp edge?/
[20:36] Murska: (yup)
[20:36] Wolfbane: "The sharp edge?"
[20:36] Shadowcaller: /Really, the rest of the items hardly have any positive sides./
[20:37] Happy: Simone passes all of this on.
[20:37] Happy: /What is the sharp edge?/
[20:37] Wolfbane: (I thought that was automatic)
[20:37] Happy: (yeah, but just felt like typing it out :P)
[20:37] Wolfbane: =P
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /It can cut holes in dimensions, and about everything else./
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /Thats how it got its name…/
[20:38] Happy: (The subtle knife?)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (hey, its a dark meteria reference.)
[20:38] Murska: (Read that. :P)
[20:39] Murska: 'Ask him to explain all those items. I'd assume we won't be hearing of much more useful ones… Since the ones he doesn't want us to have, he'll never mention.'
[20:39] Shadowcaller: *materia
[20:39] Shadowcaller: /…the cursed harembinder of dagurfhl?/
[20:40] Murska: (eeer, what? :P)
[20:40] Wolfbane: (I really don't want to know that last one :P)
[20:40] Shadowcaller: /DO that even sounds safe?/
[20:40] Shadowcaller: *sound
[20:40] Shadowcaller: (really, whats wrong with me?)
[20:40] Murska: (So… it binds a cursed harem to the user? Oo)
[20:40] Murska: (ew)
[20:41] Shadowcaller: /The axe of painful memories… want any more?/
[20:41] Wolfbane: (Is he going to explain them?)
[20:41] Wolfbane: (Like the Gray Club or Green Dagger? Aegnor asked I think)
[20:42] Happy: /They wanting you to explain what you already say before you naming more./
[20:43] Shadowcaller: /Right… the ring of attraction can make anyone fall into a temporary state of attraction to you./
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /The singing spear… sings, badly, every time it kills a enemy, its quite enchanted otherwise thought./
[20:44] Murska: 'I still think we'd need someone capable of making a counter-offer, to pressure him into actually offering something valuable.'
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /The grey club destroys any metal it touches./
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /The green dagger is permanently poisoned with a uncurable venom./
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "Well, like what?"
[20:46] Shadowcaller: "We give up our favors?"
[20:46] Wolfbane: Promise shudders after hearing about the dagger. "I wouldn't want to be near the dagger at all. No thanks."
[20:46] Happy: "No, poison is too hard to treat."
[20:47] Happy: Simone: "Mr Aegnor mean you try and sell book to someone else, to see what it worth."
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "Should we try that then? We need to name someone that plausible would want it."
[20:50] Murska: (Aegnor deems all the weapons thus far either not valuable enough or too dangerous to the wielder aswell.)
[20:51] Shadowcaller: (well, all these weapons have dangerous side-eefects, there are reasons they are keept in the valute and not used by servitors of Helios.)
[20:51] Shadowcaller: *effects
[20:51] Shadowcaller: *valute
[20:53] Murska: vault*
[20:53] Shadowcaller: (right, missed that.)
[20:54] Wolfbane: "Is there anything else, not necessarily a weapon?"
[20:55] Murska: 'I don't think we'll get him to name anything more valuable than he has before.'
[20:55] Shadowcaller: /Can they name something specific?/
[20:56] Happy: "What kind of things you wanting? Specific?"
[20:57] Murska: 'Hm. The best kinds of things usually aren't that flashy, but very practical. An infinite storage, a way to generate money…'
[20:59] Shadowcaller: /…I'm not sure I'm going to let you ruin the world economy, there is such a thing, but trust me, you don't want it./
[20:59] Wolfbane: "Somethin protective other than armor?"
[20:59] Shadowcaller: /I do have a magical room thought…/
[21:00] Shadowcaller: /A very special room, it comes with a few instructions thought./
[21:00] Wolfbane: something*
[21:00] Shadowcaller: /The necklace of baneful shielding?/
[21:01] Murska: 'Elaborate on both.'
[21:02] Shadowcaller: /Well, the necklace of baneful shielding can as its name suggest shield the wearer when activated, but it also drains the life energy of bystanders to do so./
[21:03] Shadowcaller: /The room can by a small key, be accessed anywhere, its a library, the books there might be a bit special, but you don't need to read them./
[21:03] Murska: Aegnor chuckles once he hears this. 'If this wasn't a set of picks from a vault for dangerous magical items, I might wonder why people don't make magical items /without/ some sort of a catch.'
[21:05] Shadowcaller: /Magical items are hard to create, they often end up with dangerous side effects./
[21:05] Murska: (Simone relayed that to him?)
[21:05] Happy: (yes_
[21:06] Wolfbane: Promise shakes his head. "There is nothing that I am interested in."
[21:06] Happy: "Wait," Hope says. "This room… could it be used to transport people over distances?"
[21:07] Shadowcaller: /It could… but you won't be able to pick the destination, the room seems to add sections of itself randomly, not even I fully understand it./
[21:09] Murska: 'Hmm… indeed, that would be one of the more useful things. Something that we could use to transport ourselves quickly and prefarably safely over large distances.'
[21:10] Shadowcaller: "Well, the room have its rules… but they are easy to follow."
[21:11] Murska: 'Well, it wouldn't be of much use as a transport if we can't pick our destination, now would it?'
[21:11] Shadowcaller: */ /
[21:11] Happy: "I was thinking of the Gallionians."
[21:11] Wolfbane: "It could let us escape quickly though."
[21:12] Murska: 'Well, I don't see why if something can allow us to transport ourselves safely to wherever we want, we couldn't use it to transport someone else.'
[21:12] Shadowcaller: /You cna of course come back to the same position you came from./
[21:12] Shadowcaller: *can
[21:13] Murska: 'If we can't pick our destination, we might end up somewhere worse than where we left from.'
[21:14] Murska: 'Ask him if he has something else usable for safe transport over long distances for multiple people. If not in the vault for dangerous magical items, then maybe somewhere else he could get it for us from.'
[21:15] Shadowcaller: /Magical transportation is rare, most of it involves different dimensions and such./
[21:16] Murska: 'Got it or not?'
[21:16] Shadowcaller: /I don't got the safe type of trnsportation you want, no./
[21:17] Murska: 'Right. Hmm. What about what you said earlier… A clock of time-stop?'
[21:17] Shadowcaller: *transportation
[21:18] Shadowcaller: /Yes, or it rather speeds up the user to fantastic speeds./
[21:19] Murska: 'What's the catch? Limitations?'
[21:19] Shadowcaller: /It makes you age a bit faster when you use it./
[21:19] Murska: ' "a bit"?'
[21:22] Shadowcaller: /Yes, depending on how long you spend within the time boost./
[21:23] Murska: 'Examples?'
[21:24] Shadowcaller: /Lets say you spend a day in it, that would age you 5 years./
[21:24] Shadowcaller: /Not that much really as you can tell./
[21:26] Murska: 'Hmm.' Aegnor looks at the others. 'Doesn't anyone else have anything to say?'
[21:26] Wolfbane: "I don't think anyone would have any real reason to stay in it for a day."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: /Oh, no magic can be used within it./
[21:28] Murska: 'That might be useful for a number of situations. I still think we'd be better off if there was someone else to try offer it to. Anyhow, we had better rest before we make any decisions.'
[21:29] Shadowcaller: /Once its used it needs to recharge a few days thought/
[21:29] Shadowcaller: /Its very powerful magic we are talking here./
[21:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I could go with the necklace or the book really, but if there is anything you want…"
[21:32] Happy: Hope: "It was the three of you who went to the Deep Realms. It should be your decision."
[21:33] Wolfbane: Promise nods in agreement.
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor?"
[21:34] Murska: 'I don't really need anything but you.'
[21:36] Happy: (D'awww)
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "I can't imagine anyone that would have said that to me… except you."
[21:38] Murska: 'My opinion on the situation, however, is that we rest first, you learn what you can from that book and then we decide tomorrow.'
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "That sounds fair." She closes the book again and puts it under her arm
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "If I will be able to concentrate on it that is.." She winks at Aegnor
[21:41] Happy: "Are you going to try and contact Z-zubera now?"
[21:41] Wolfbane: "We may as well get it done now."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "Go ahead, I try to find a intresting spell in this book in the mean time."
[21:44] Wolfbane: Promise walks up to the circle. "Zubera, can you hear me?"
[21:45] Shadowcaller: No one appears but you can hear a voice inside your head. /Hello Promise, anything I can do for my favorite wolfen?/
[21:48] Wolfbane: Promise smiles mentally. /It is nice to hear from you gain, but I have a question. Is there a way for a spirit to come back from the other side of the Gate?/
[21:51] Shadowcaller: /There have been disturbances at the gate lately Promise… what is this spirit you want to find? Maybe I can pinpoint him for you?/
[21:52] Wolfbane: /He is The Yokaim(?) Wolf. He has a friend here who would like to see him one last time before he crosses over as well./
[21:53] Shadowcaller: (Yokai)
[21:53] Wolfbane: Yokai*
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /COuld you describe this entity a bit better? I might have heard of him…/
[21:55] Wolfbane: /I am not sure if this will help much, but he used to be the spirit guarding the town where we are./
[21:55] Wolfbane: (Other than that, did they even have a description?)
[21:55] Shadowcaller: /Oh, the name less one./
[21:55] Shadowcaller: (you never saw him…)
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /Iname banished him, he will not be able to return on his own./
[21:57] Shadowcaller: /He needs a guide, otherwise he his hopelessly lost… and I know how that feels…/
[21:59] Wolfbane: /What kind of guide?/
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /One that knows the way back of course./
[22:00] Wolfbane: /Since I do not know the way, is there another option?/
[22:01] Shadowcaller: /You DO know the way, but I rather not send you there… perhaps you know someone else who can?/
[22:01] Wolfbane: /I know the way?/
[22:02] Shadowcaller: /You belong to this world, you will be able to sense the way back./
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /But as I said, I don't want to send you there…/
[22:05] Wolfbane: /Is it dangerous?/
[22:06] Shadowcaller: /Not usually, some spirits might be a bit strange but they don't like to hurt mortals./
[22:06] Wolfbane: /Why wouldn't you want to send me there?/
[22:08] Shadowcaller: /Well, while it may not harm you physically, it can be a awful mental experience, and I like you Promise./
[22:11] Wolfbane: Promise pauses for a moment. /Could the spirit be waiting for his friend on the other side?/
[22:13] Wolfbane: (Forget that last one, sorry)
[22:14] Wolfbane: /I am wanting to get him back so he can protect the village as well./
[22:15] Shadowcaller: /Well… I doubt they will ever find eahc other./
[22:15] Shadowcaller: *each
[22:16] Shadowcaller: /The nameless one is lost, he can only be found by the ones he is bound to./
[22:16] Wolfbane: /The ones he has been bound to?/
[22:16] Shadowcaller: /Wolfen, elves./
[22:17] Wolfbane: /I am a Wolfen though. That means I would be able to bring him back, right?/
[22:18] Shadowcaller: /Yes, you could find him yes./
[22:20] Wolfbane: /Then I need to do so if they want to keep the slavers from bothering them./
[22:22] Shadowcaller: /I won't let you go into the spirit realm.. you do not understadn the spirits./
[22:22] Happy: brb
[22:22] Murska: (ask me?)
[22:22] Wolfbane: /Am I able to bring another with me?/
[22:22] Wolfbane: (I was thinking that :P)
[22:23] Shadowcaller: *understand
[22:23] Shadowcaller: /Well… do you really need to go there?/
[22:23] Wolfbane: /The village needs a protector and we won't be able to stay here for much longer./
[22:24] Shadowcaller: /…do you know someone that can help you then?/
[22:24] Wolfbane: /My companion Aegnor is a spirit speaker./
[22:27] Happy: (Hope will want to go >.>)
[22:27] Shadowcaller: /He is?… I guess he would be able to help you then./
[22:29] Wolfbane: /Let me ask him if he wants to help./ Promise turns to the others. "We can get him back, but we have to go to the spirit realm. She says she'll let me go if Aegnor comes along since he can understand them."
[22:31] Happy: "I should go too," Hope says.
[22:32] Murska: 'Well, sure. I'm going to have to visit there eventually anyway.'
[22:33] Happy: "How dangerous is it?"
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "Wait, where exactly are you two going?"
[22:34] Wolfbane: "She says that while it isn't really physically dangerous, it could be a bad experience mentally."
[22:34] Wolfbane: "To get the Yokai Wolf back to protect the village."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "The spirit realm is huge, there are many different places."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "I understood that part…
[22:35] Wolfbane: /Where exactly would we be going?/
[22:36] Shadowcaller: /I do not know, I will only send you to his current location, but I don't know where that is. Its your connection to him that will take you there once I let you go./
[22:36] Wolfbane: Promise repeats that.
[22:39] Happy: "When do we go? I think you need some rest first."
[22:40] Wolfbane: /Could we go in the morning? I am still a little weak from the day before./
[22:41] Murska: 'Yeah, I'm not going anywhere before I've regained the full use of my mental faculties.'
[22:41] Shadowcaller: /I'm glad if you /don't/ go there…/
[22:42] Wolfbane: /I am sorry, but if we want to protect these people, we must./
[22:42] Happy: "Cessie, you're coming too, right?"
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "If Aegnor goes, so must I."
[22:45] Shadowcaller: /I understand… I guess…/
[22:45] Shadowcaller: /Just find your way back./
[22:45] Murska: 'I could just go alone, you know.' (to all of them)
[22:46] Happy: "You think we'd send you alone?"
[22:46] Wolfbane: "It would be best if more than one of us did."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "We can't send him alone there, I must follow him."
[22:47] Wolfbane: /Don't worry, we'll find our way back safely. What did you ean by disturbances in the gate?/
[22:47] Wolfbane: mean*
[22:48] Shadowcaller: /There is someone here in Kyou, using magic on it./
[22:49] Murska: 'Well, I can talk to spirits and harm them if necessary… Why would it help to have more of us going? Cannon fodder? No thanks.'
[22:49] Wolfbane: /What is it doing to the Gate?/
[22:49] Shadowcaller: /I have no idea./
[22:49] Wolfbane: /Is there any reason why someone would?/
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /I don't know why the humans are intrested in the gate really, but they are doing something with it./
[22:50] Happy: "So that if something happened to you, we could try and keep you safe and bring you home maybe?" Hope says. "Do you really think we'd send you off into danger alone?"
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "The spirit realm is easy to get lost in, I don't want to be left alone here."
[22:52] Wolfbane: /Can you tell if it is harmful or not?/
[22:53] Shadowcaller: /I cannot./
[22:54] Wolfbane: Promise thinks. "Cessie, why would anyone be casting magic on The Gate?"
[22:55] Murska: 'Well, if something'd happen to me you'd just be in exactly as much trouble there as I would. If you stay here and I don't come back, you can, say, use a favour with Helios to get him to save me or get other help.'
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "Magic on the gate? I didn't even know that was possible… what did she tell you?"
[22:56] Happy: "Except that we'd have to find you. If we were with you all along, we'd be there."
[22:56] Wolfbane: "Just that someone in Kyou is casting some kind of magic on the Gate, disturbing it."
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "Strange…"
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "But Aegnor, I won't let you go alone, I must protect you, no matter what."
[22:58] Murska: 'See…' Aegnor sighs. 'Nah, no point. I wouldn't let you go alone either.'
[22:59] Wolfbane: /Is there anything that the Gate does besides let spirits cross over?/
[23:00] Shadowcaller: /Well… a lot of things./
[23:01] Happy: "See? Love makes you foolish," Simone says, with a grin at Cessie.
[23:01] Wolfbane: /What are the most important things that it does?/
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "Quiet you…"
[23:01] Happy: "I go too. I want to see spirit realm."
[23:02] Happy: "But it not mean I in love with any of you." *grin*
[23:02] Shadowcaller: /Makes spirits able to transfer between the worlds, and spirit energy too…/
[23:03] Wolfbane: /Spirit Energy? Could it be controllable?/
[23:03] Wolfbane: /If so, maybe someone is trying to use it./
[23:03] Shadowcaller: /No, spirits can't be controlled like that, they are using that other type of magic after all… I don't think they will succed in whatever they are doing anyway./
[23:05] Happy: (how can she possibly know that without knowing what they are doing? :P)
[23:06] Wolfbane: /Why not? If it is disturbing the gate, it could always do more./
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (she knows that spirit energy is almost impossible to manipulate with normal magic.)
[23:06] Murska: 'Maybe love does make you a bit foolish. But then, what's wrong with being a bit foolish?'
[23:07] Happy: "Hmph. I not need love."
[23:07] Murska: 'Because you haven't experienced it. It's foolish to say something like that about something you don't know anything about.'
[23:08] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at Hope. "You will see some day Simone."
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Some persons never fall in love you know…"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Artaris priests for example."
[23:09] Happy: Simone rolls her eyes, seeming quite unconvinced.
[23:09] Shadowcaller: *artaris
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "I don't think everyone falls in love, I think its a rare thing finding someone that is perfect for you…"
[23:11] Happy: "Then we'll go tomorrow, after we've had some rest? How long will it take?"
[23:12] Wolfbane: /How long will it take?/
[23:12] Shadowcaller: /To do what Promise? Transport you there?/
[23:12] Wolfbane: "Cessie, if /I/ could find the perfect person, anyone can."
[23:13] Wolfbane: /To get there and back depending on the area./
[23:13] Shadowcaller: /Time flows differently there, it could take days, or hours./
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "Promise, you don't understand, some people just aren't intrested in love, maybe physical contact, but not love."
[23:14] Murska: Aegnor just smiles at Cessie.
[23:14] Happy: "I don't like to leave the village unprotected."
[23:15] Wolfbane: /Is there any way to tell how fast or slow it will be?/
[23:15] Shadowcaller: /I don't know where I'm sending you Promise… I will try to keep contact with you there, but it will be hard./
[23:16] Wolfbane: /Thank you. We'll leave in the morning after we have had some sleep. Is there anything you want me to do?/
[23:17] Shadowcaller: /No, of course not, I can't demand anything from my true savior can I?/
[23:17] Wolfbane: "She says that it could take hours, or days. Time is different there."
[23:17] Wolfbane: /Maybe not demand, but you could always request it./ *mental smile*
[23:18] Shadowcaller: /No… I won't even do that, I'm already in a huge debt to you Promise./
[23:19] Wolfbane: /Please, you have done more than enough just by naming my brother and taking care of him./
[23:20] Shadowcaller: /well, you have done more to me then you can ever imagine, there is nothing that can fully repay that debt./
[23:21] Wolfbane: /If a debt can never fully be repayed, then it is not a debt./
[23:22] Shadowcaller: /No… its not, its something else I can not find the words for./
[23:23] Wolfbane: /Then ignore it. I do not mind. And if you 'do' want to repay me some way, just make sure my brother stays taken care of./
[23:25] Shadowcaller: /I will try… that I swear to you, I will keep him safe no matter what./
[23:26] Wolfbane: /Thank you. Now, is there anything you wish me to do if I am able to?/
[23:26] Shadowcaller: /No, its not, I just wish you will be safe, whatever you do savior./
[23:27] Wolfbane: /I promise that I will be./
[23:30] Shadowcaller: /Anything else you need for me then?/
[23:34] Wolfbane: /There is nothing else that I can think of./
[23:34] Shadowcaller: /Call me again whenever you need me..farwell…/
[23:34] Shadowcaller: She is gone
[23:35] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "What did she say?"
[23:36] Wolfbane: "Okay, all we have to do is call on her again when we are ready. She'll transport us to where ever the spirit is, but we have to find our own way out. She says that we'll know how."
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "We meaning?"
[23:38] Happy: "All of us, right?"
[23:38] Wolfbane: "We are all going, correct?"
[23:39] Murska: 'I guess.
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "Of course."
[23:41] Wolfbane: "That is what I mean."
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "So… I'm going to try to study then."
[23:43] Happy: "I think we'll leave you to it then," Hope says, squeezing Promise's paw and smiling at him.
[23:44] Wolfbane: Promise smiles back and returns the squeeze. "We'll see you in the morning then."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "We will." Cessie smiles to them as they leave
[23:45] Murska: After they leave, Aegnor turns to Cessie. 'Are you sure you shouldn't rest first before studying? If you're anywhere as mentally tired as I am…'
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "We might need that spell… but I guess I can read the book in…" She looks at the dirt floor "On the ground."
[23:48] Murska: 'But would studying even do you any good if you're so tired?'
[23:49] Happy: "I'd better check you over again," Hope says. "You seem to have nearly recovered."
[23:49] Wolfbane: (Are they back in their hut?)
[23:50] Shadowcaller: (they are.)
[23:50] Shadowcaller: (Unless a dragon stopp- they are back.)
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Its important, I need to learn a spell before we go to the spirit realm… it could save life's.."
[23:51] Wolfbane: Promise wraps his arms around her and smiles. "I certainly feel better than I was."
[23:52] Murska: 'But if you're too tired when you go, and make a mistake, it could cost lifes.' Aegnor smiles at her gently. 'I'm just worried…'
[23:54] Happy: Hope climbs into his lap. "I can tell."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: She immediately looks much more relaxed as Aegnor says these words "…I know you are, but I need to do this."
[23:58] Wolfbane: He nuzzles Hope. "I'd hope I was."
[23:59] Murska: Aegnor sighs. 'Okay… But promise me you'll get some rest tonight aswell. A spell won't do you much good if you fall asleep while casting it.'
[00:01] Shadowcaller: She looks at the book and then at Aegnor "Um… you are going to bed then?"
[00:02] Murska: 'I'll sleep my three hours at some point. I can keep you company for now if you wish.'
[00:02] Happy: "I guess that means the liver infusion did its job."
[00:02] Happy: Simone has crept out by this time. >.>
[00:03] Shadowcaller: (we got that >.>)
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "I have a hard time concentrating when I'm alone with you, you know?"
[00:05] Happy: Hope lays her head on Promise's unwounded shoulder. "There's a part of me that wishes we could just leave all of this behind."
[00:05] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'Odd. I have it easy concentrating when I'm alone with me. But if we're together…'
[00:07] Wolfbane: "I know. I can feel it too. I just want to stay with you always."
[00:07] Wolfbane: He strokes her back and neck.
[00:09] Happy: "Mmmmm… But you wouldn't be the person I fell in love with if you didn't want to help where you could."
[00:13] Wolfbane: Promise sighs. "I know, but since I have met you, I have finally been happy. I'd be willing to settle down finally if you wanted it."
[00:15] Happy: "We'd have to find a place to settle first. So I think we don't have to make that decision yet."
[00:16] Shadowcaller: "Ugh… now you are making me choose."
[00:18] Wolfbane: He nuzzles her again. "I know. But all you have to do is ask me to do anything, and I will."
[00:18] Murska: Aegnor smiles mischievously and walks right next to her, whispering into her ear. 'So I am.'
[00:23] Happy: "Anything? So much power. What should I ask, I wonder?"
[00:24] Shadowcaller: She drops the book on the ground "Just a little while then…"
[00:26] Wolfbane: Promise breathes in her rich scent. "Whatever you want. If it is in my ability to give it to you."
[00:28] Murska: Aegnor kisses her ear softly, barely even touching it.
[00:29] Happy: Hope leans back so she can meet his eyes. "You. Just you."
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Her bleak face turns slightly red "Your not making this easy for me you know…"
[00:31] Wolfbane: Promise smiles and strokes her face gently. "You never had to ask."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: She leans against Aegnor, her back against his chest
[00:37] Happy: (skip ahead to morning?)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (I need to go to bed…)
[00:39] Wolfbane: (Okay.)
[00:42] Happy: *pokes Murska*
[00:46] Murska: (Sorry, was trying to escape a bomb.)
[00:48] Happy: So the morning arrives… everyone turns up at the hut prepared to go on an epic journey.
[00:48] Shadowcaller: (if that is, I'm going to bed:P)
[00:49] Happy: (I thought you'd want to send them off first)
[00:50] Shadowcaller: (can you do it? I'm really tired:S)
[00:50] Happy: (Okay)
[00:51] Happy: Zubera is standing in the circle when they arrive.
[00:52] Shadowcaller: (So…)
[00:52] Wolfbane: Promise bows dramatically. "We are ready."
[00:53] Happy: "Then you and Aegnor should say your goodbyes and step into the circle."
[00:53] Wolfbane: "We are /all/ going."
[00:55] Happy: "The humans would be separated from you if they went. They have no ties to the Yokai Wolf."
[00:56] Wolfbane: "They have ties through Aegnor and I."
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure magic works that way Promise… even thought I would like it too…"
[00:57] Happy: "If you were spirits, that might work. But you are the intruders in this realm." She pauses. "Change your mind, please. You don't have to go."
[00:57] Wolfbane: (Um, who is doing Zubera?)
[00:58] Happy: (Me, since SC is tired)
[00:59] Wolfbane: Promise tries to think of a way around this. "So he would have ties to any wolfen and any elf?"
[01:01] Happy: "Because of the vows he made, I believe so."
[01:01] Happy: Hope puts an arm around Promise's waist.
[01:03] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at Hope. "Say that Cessie and Hope were turned into either Wolfen or Elf by Helena, would that work?"
[01:03] Happy: "And me," Simone says. "I could be elf."
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "What?" Cessie looks at Promise doubtful
[01:04] Wolfbane: "Simone too. Well, if you are wanting to go…"
[01:04] Happy: "If I understand what she does, it doesn't change what you are, only your appearance."
[01:05] Happy: "If they used masks, it could work." Hope noticeably flinches. "But I have warned you of the dangers of masks."
[01:06] Wolfbane: "Can only the wearer take off the masks?"
[01:07] Happy: "There are spirits who have power over masks."
[01:07] Wolfbane: "What if they took off the masks as soon as we arrived there?"
[01:08] Happy: Hope is trembling, but silent.
[01:09] Wolfbane: Promise gently squeezes her to try and comfort her.
[01:09] Happy: "The spirit realm is dangerous to the mind. I do not think you should wear masks there."
[01:10] Wolfbane: "Are you sure the physical appearence trick won't help? They are after all decieving."
[01:11] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[01:16] Happy: "This is the spirit realm. Your physical appearance is how you perceive yourself."
[01:17] Wolfbane: "Can any of you think of a way? Otherwise, it may just have to be me and Aegnor."
[01:17] Murska: 'So… I guess we'll go together then, and make it a quick visit. Or I could still go alone, aswell.'
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "There must be a way…"
[01:19] Happy: "I could try to send you all together, but I fear you would not arrive in the same place."
[01:20] Wolfbane: "What if we tied lines to each other?"
[01:20] Shadowcaller: "Is this spirit you are after so important?"
[01:20] Happy: "He kept Gallion safe from slavers before we came," Hope says.
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "Well, Helena can do that right?"
[01:22] Murska: '…well…'
[01:22] Happy: /I will do all in my power to protect them/ she says to Cessie. /And my power is growing, but it is still small./
[01:23] Murska: 'It's my fault he's there and being lost forever is not a fate I would wish on him.'
[01:23] Shadowcaller: /You killed Reorn… I think./
[01:23] Happy: /With help./
[01:24] Shadowcaller: /Still, slavers are not even the half of a god./
[01:25] Shadowcaller: "Do you really want to do this Aegnor?"
[01:25] Shadowcaller: "You might get lost…"
[01:25] Murska: 'Do you really still think I would let anything keep me from you?'
[01:26] Wolfbane: "I have to go. I can probably find him and get out faster."
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "…I'm still worried."
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "How long would they be gone?"
[01:27] Happy: Hope: "If you have to go… I understand."
[01:27] Happy: Zubera: "I wish I could say. It could be hours or days."
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "…Aegnor, do you really want to do this?"
[01:28] Wolfbane: Promise nuzzles Hope. "I will be back as soon as possible."
[01:29] Happy: "You better be," Hope says.
[01:29] Murska: Aegnor looks into Cessie's eyes, with a sad expression. 'No, I don't want to leave you. But I have to do this.'
[01:31] Shadowcaller: She hugs him, as hard as she can "I would come back and raise you from the dead… there is nothing keeping you away from me."
[01:32] Murska: He wraps his arms around her aswell, holding her tightly. 'I believe that. Nothing would be powerful enough.'
[01:33] Shadowcaller: (I take that as a challenge:P)
[01:33] Happy: (gah!)
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "No.. it won't.."
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "You be back." Cessie says, assured
[01:33] Shadowcaller: *will be abck
[01:33] Happy: Hope, not being nearly so eloquent as a bard, just stands on tiptoes and whispers "I love you."
[01:33] Shadowcaller: *back
[01:34] Wolfbane: Promise doesn't bother whispering. "I love you too."
[01:34] Murska: (Aegnor somehow procures epic shades and puts them on. 'I'll be back.') :P
[01:35] Shadowcaller: (I knew you would:P)
[01:35] Happy: She puts her hand on his mostly healed shoulder wound and sends a fresh burst of healing energy into it. "Be safe. Please?"
[01:35] Murska: And, once the farewells are over, Aegnor and Promise hop on a bus? :P
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Bed!
[01:36] Wolfbane: Promise nuzzles her neck. "Of course."
[01:36] Happy: Zubera waits patiently for them to finish. Simone rolls her eyes.
[01:37] Shadowcaller: (Need to go to bed…)
[01:37] Shadowcaller: (Good Night.)
[01:38] Happy: (goodnight SC)
[01:38] Wolfbane: (Night)
[01:38] * Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
[01:39] Happy: Hope reluctantly lets go of Promise. And presumably Cessie does the same.
[01:39] Murska: Lets go of Promise? I guess. :P
[01:40] Happy: :P
[01:40] Wolfbane: Promise gives Hope's hand one last squeeze and sighs. "I'm ready."
[01:40] Happy: "Then step into the circle," Zubera says.
[01:40] Wolfbane: Promise does so.
[01:41] Murska: Aegnor, aswell.
[01:41] Wolfbane: He looks at Hope. "I'll be back as soon as I can. No later."
[01:42] Happy: Zubera puts a hand on each of their shoulders, and the three of them disappear.
[01:43] Happy: (dun dun duuuuuun!)
[01:47] Murska: Aegnor… disappears. :P
[01:53] Happy: Well I'll be disappointed in Murska if he logs on much from Japan, but I do hope to see Wolfie soon.
[01:54] Wolfbane: *hugs*
[01:54] Happy: *hugs*
[01:54] Wolfbane: If I am unable to get on before he does, have him return alone.
[01:55] Happy: Yeah, you might get lost in there. :S
[01:55] Wolfbane: Make up something sufficient for my reason to stay behind and of course he would ask Aegnor to tell Hope he loved her
[01:55] Murska: Or I'll go for a solo adventure in spirit land. :P
[01:55] Happy: I figured they'd get separated against their will
[01:55] Happy: So he wouldn't have a chance to say goodbye
[01:56] Wolfbane: There is still one thing I really want though. No way to pull it off reasonably.
[01:57] Happy: wings?
[01:57] Murska: Hm. It seems I might gain a silver RogueITP trophy. I can't really do anything towards that anymore, especially with my trip. :P
[01:57] Wolfbane: Wings
[01:57] Wolfbane: Promise with wings would be awesome
[01:57] Murska: Hm.
[01:57] Wolfbane: :P
[01:57] Murska: Well
[01:57] Murska: you get wings if I get my
[01:57] Murska: flame/laser jetpack guitar
[01:58] Wolfbane: Hey, something /could/ happen where I get wings.
[01:58] Wolfbane: :P
[01:58] Wolfbane: Is it likely? No
[01:58] Murska: I guess I'll see what the contest brings me once I get back. Anyway, I believe it's time to sleep if I want to wake up to get to the plane to sleep again.
[01:58] Wolfbane: Trust me, you won't be able to sleep in it
[01:59] Wolfbane: Good luck
[01:59] Wolfbane: Have fun and eat lots of sushi
[01:59] Wolfbane: :P
[01:59] Murska: I can sleep WHEREVER.
[01:59] Happy: i have hypersomnia, but i still can't sleep well on a plane
[01:59] Happy: even with earplugs and an eye mask
[02:00] Happy: damn dry air
[02:00] Murska: I always sleep on planes
[02:00] Murska: and in cars, and on classes
[02:01] Murska: wherever I get bored and can't think of anything to do
[02:01] Happy: well planes are better for sleep than airports
[02:01] Murska: I can't sleep while standing, yet
[02:01] Murska: but I can sleep while sitting up straight
[02:01] Happy: damn announcement every ten minutes telling you not to leave your luggage unattended
[02:01] Murska: the epic shades help with that, so people don't see my eyes
[02:02] Happy: hopefully wolfie will be back by the time you are
[02:02] Wolfbane: v.v
[02:02] Wolfbane: I doubt it
[02:03] Happy: if you don't get internet at all, will you be okay?
[02:04] Wolfbane: Oh, I'll be fine as long as I can stay busy, but after a month, it will be /very/ hard to do so.
[02:05] Happy: what do you think are the chances of you being online?
[02:07] Wolfbane: With my father wanting to get it, it should be pretty good, but there is a big problem with finding a good service apparently. I'll say maybe 50/50
[02:07] Wolfbane: That should be for the first few months
[02:07] Wolfbane: weeks*
[02:08] Wolfbane: blah
[02:08] Wolfbane: I mean that should be it /after/ the first few weeks
[02:11] Murska: *hugs enough for ten whole days* *poof*
[02:11] Happy: *hugs*
[02:11] Happy: have fun
[02:11] Murska: I shall.
