Kyou 26

[20:52] Happy: We just sent the men off
[20:52] Happy: We have a pile of artifacts
[20:52] Shadowcaller: (Is Simone there?9
[20:53] Shadowcaller: Inside the hut that is
[20:53] Happy: yeah
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "So… I guess we have to wait then."
[20:54] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes a quick look at the artifacts on the floor
[20:55] Happy: "I hate this. I hate it when we don't stay together as a group."
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "Don't you think I hate it Hope?"
[20:56] Happy: Hope hugs Cessie. "I know, you hate it as much as I do."
[20:57] Shadowcaller: *hugs back* "We got each other at least…"
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "Sorry about our… missunderstandings."
[20:59] Happy: "I guess I…. need to talk to Kuori soon. He may be angry at me."
[21:01] Shadowcaller: SHe lets Hope go, backing away a bit "What are you going to tell him?"
[21:02] Happy: "That I did what I believed was right."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "Will be accept that?"
[21:03] Shadowcaller: *he
[21:04] Happy: "I don't know."
[21:04] Happy: (Can Hope still feel prey sense?)
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "Well see I gues, I will be there for support."
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (in the distance yes.)
[21:05] Shadowcaller: (she can't feel the distance, just that its out there somewhere.)
[21:08] Shadowcaller: "But we should really do something with these artifacts first… we can't just have them laying around here.."
[21:08] Happy: "I can't really advise you about that. It's well out of my realm of knowledge."
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "Well, they are dangerous right?"
[21:10] Happy: "Oh yes. You're right that something should be done with them. I just mean I can't really tell you whether to make a deal with Helios or not."
[21:12] Shadowcaller: Cessie walks forward to the brown box on the floor "We ought to do something with them before we go to bed at least…"
[21:13] Shadowcaller: She picks it up
[21:13] Shadowcaller: And opens it
[21:15] Happy: Simone watches closely.
[21:15] Happy: "I thinking you want that one most."
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, ethernal life…"
[21:16] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head and closes the box again, but she dosn't put it down again "Well, you better use the circle while its here."
[21:18] Happy: "For what?"
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "Kuori of course, thats what you wanted right?"
[21:19] Happy: "I normally go hunting when I need to speak to him. I didn't think… I guess the first time he spoke to me was in a circle though."
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "You didn't think he would be able to contact with the circle? Well, I wouldn't know."
[21:23] Happy: "I will try." Hope stands in front of the circle. "Kuori, I wish to speak to you."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: (sec)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: Within the circle a female form appears, she appears a bit supprised to have been summoned at first but then appears to sink down onto perfect calm
[21:33] Shadowcaller: She takes a quick look at the room she have been summoned to, apperently taking in all information she can of the place, "Your Hope?"
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[21:33] Happy: "I am"
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "Well about time I reached you, the borders of this country aren't exactly easy to pass."
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "Where exactly are you? I need to met you… in the flesh."
[21:35] Happy: "I'm in a village in the Yokai forest."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "Yokai? I be there in a few hours, don't move.." Her lips form into a amused smile as she dissapears again
[21:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Who was that?"
[21:36] Happy: "It must be one of Kuori's Servants. He said he was sending one."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "Kuori's servant? Any special reason he sent one?"
[21:38] Happy: "To see if Zubera has really changed."
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "And if he don't consider her changed?"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: You can hear a critical tone sneak up in her voice
[21:39] Happy: "Then he will still try to hunt her, as he did before I was chosen."
[21:40] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head, "I don't think we should talk about this."
[21:41] Happy: "You know what Zubera did. Can you blame him for thinking the world would be better off without her?"
[21:41] Happy: "But I won't hurt her. I know Promise cares for her."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "She have reformed, whatever she did in the past should not matter… but really, we should not talk about this."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "I always get worked up about it."
[21:43] Happy: "We can talk about it, as long as you accept that I'm trying to do what I think is right. I can't control what anyone else does."
[21:44] Happy: "I won't let Kuori make my decisions for me."
[21:45] Shadowcaller: "Its against what I have been taught Hope, its nothing I can easily accept."
[21:46] Happy: "Can you accept that my intentions are good, even if you disagree with my actions?"
[21:47] Shadowcaller: /The road to hell is filled with good intensions…/
[21:47] Happy: (Cessie?)
[21:47] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "I will try."
[21:49] Happy: "Now. These items. It might be best if they were dealt with before the Servant arrives."
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "How exactly? I doubt we can keep them somewhere in the village…"
[21:50] Happy: "Send them back to Helios?"
[21:51] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes a doubtful look at the artifacts and then back at Hope "Well, as long as I can keep the book a while."
[21:52] Happy: "You want to be keeping book then? I tell him that the deal?"
[21:53] Shadowcaller: "It would be stupid to do the deal without Aegnor, can't we just send back the really dangerous items and keep the ones we might want to trade?"
[21:53] Happy: "You want me ask him that?"
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, we better before that Kuori servant shows up…"
[21:56] Happy: "Which once you want send back then?"
[21:57] Happy: *ones
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "Everything but the book and the necklance."
[21:57] Happy: /Helios? It Simone. Are you there?.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: /As always…/
[21:58] Happy: /Miss Cessie want to send back your items, except for book and necklace./
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /A very good idea, I don't want those items outside the valute more then nessecary./
[22:00] Shadowcaller: All items but the items Cessie carries fades away
[22:01] Happy: /Do you knowing who Servant of Kuori is?/
[22:01] Shadowcaller: /You mean Michicora? Yes, I am aware of her./
[22:02] Happy: /She is coming here to see Miss Hope. I wondering how dangerous she is./
[22:03] Shadowcaller: /About as much as you can expect from a servant of Kuori, she is very deadly./
[22:04] Happy: /I sure she *can* kill me. But do she have motivation to?/
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /Only if your her prey, or is in the way of her prey./
[22:05] Happy: /Okay then. I not stupid enough to get in Huntress's way./
[22:06] Shadowcaller: /You really need to decide upon those items soon, I can't wait forever./
[22:06] Happy: /I tell her./
[22:06] Happy: "Helios say you needing to decide soon."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "He is the one that wants the orb, we should not have to stress our decision."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure I can met one of his servants, do you need me there Hope?"
[22:08] Happy: "You trading him orb?"
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "Book I mean."
[22:08] Happy: "Oh, okay."
[22:08] Happy: Hope: "I suppose not."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "No… I'm going to be there, I should be able to face your life."
[22:11] Happy: "It's your decision, Cessie. I know it would be stressful for you."
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "I will try, it might be intresting and I don't really have anything else to do right now anyway."
[22:14] Happy: (ff to her arrival?)
[22:15] Shadowcaller: (Sure, or right before her arrival rather.)
[22:15] Happy: (okay)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie have been casting a few spells and reading the book, what Simone and Hope have done during the time its up to you
[22:17] Happy: Simone is playing with the kids her age, and learning elvish.
[22:17] Happy: Hope is visiting villagers who need healing. Probably just minor illness or injuries.
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (Are they together or separated?)
[22:18] Happy: (separate)
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (what is Hope doing at the exact moment? Do a scene.)
[22:19] Happy: Hope is tending to an elderly man who has arthritis.
[22:20] Happy: She's preparing an herbal infusion that will help with the pain and inflammation.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Where is Zubera?" Hope suddenly can hear a voice behind her
[22:22] Happy: "She is wherever gods go when they aren't here," Hope says, handing the bowl of herbal tea to the man. Saying to him in Wolfen: "Drink this slowly. It should make your hips feel better."
[22:23] Happy: Then she turns around.
[22:24] Shadowcaller: Michicora stands there, looking she have appeared of nowhere "You need to be on your guard better Hope, I should not have been able to sneak up to a real hunter like that."
[22:24] Happy: (
[22:25] Happy: (Did she really appear out of nowhere?)
[22:25] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[22:26] Happy: "Perhaps. But I am not just a huntress."
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Thats the title Kuori refered you with.. oh well, lets get down to bussniess then. You claimed Zubera had changed, then you summon her."
[22:28] Happy: "May I know your name, since you know mine?"
[22:29] Shadowcaller: "I'm Michocora, servant of Kuori and I have been seraching for you for some time now, not that I don't mind."
[22:30] Happy: "Please, come with me, and I will see if she can be summoned. My mate is not here, so I don't know if she will answer to me."
[22:30] Happy: Hope leads the way back to Cessie and Aegnor's hut.
[22:33] Shadowcaller: The villagers appear a bit suprised by this dangerous looking woman's sudden apperance but choose to at least try to ignore it since she is with you. You can see them talking about it thought
[22:33] Shadowcaller: Rumors…
[22:34] Happy: Hope knocks on the door of the hut.
[22:34] Shadowcaller: When you first look at Michicora she appears unintrested of the village, but the more you are with her, the more you realize that she is watching everything, taking account of every building and person in the village
[22:35] Happy: Simone soon appears, having heard the rumors and whisperings.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: Michicora gives Simone a glance, "Name?"
[22:37] Happy: "I am Simone," she says, and curtseys.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Function in the party?"
[22:38] Happy: "I am translator."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Very well."
[22:39] Shadowcaller: (there is still no door in the hut:P)
[22:39] Happy: (Hope still isn't walking in unannounced)
[22:39] Shadowcaller: (Well, she knocks at the wall then.)
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "Come in…"
[22:40] Happy: They go in. "Cessie, this is Michicora, Servant of Kuori. She would like us to summon Z-Zubera."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "I see, can we even do that without Promise then?"
[22:42] Shadowcaller: Michicora to Cessie: "Function in the party?"
[22:43] Happy: "She's my best friend, not a function," Hope says irritably.
[22:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears a bit taken by this bluntness but answers "Wizard…"
[22:43] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Just asking."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "Summon her?" Michicora looks at Hope
[22:46] Happy: Hope steps to the circle, visibly nervous, wishing Promise were here.
[22:46] Happy: "Z-Zubera? Are y-you th-there?"
[22:48] Shadowcaller: *inside Hope's head* /…should I take form? I don't want to scare you Hope./
[22:49] Happy: /Y-yes, please./
[22:49] Happy: She actually finds it scarier having Zubera in her head. O.o
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /I'm so sorry about all that happend…/
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Zubera takes form into the circle
[22:52] Happy: "Z-Zubera, this is Michicora, Servant of Kuori. She has come to see if… if… y-you have changed."
[22:54] Shadowcaller: Zubera looks more at Hope then Michicora, her expression is hard to read but she don't look very happy
[22:55] Shadowcaller: Then she looks at Michicora that says "I will tell if you are a prey or not."
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "You are one of HIS servants?"
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Her expression remains neutral, but Hope can feel Zuberas anger, the others don't however.
[22:57] Happy: /I wish Promise were here./ Hope keeps thinking. (Not consciously sending it)
[22:58] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "I'm here on a mission, we could do this the easy or the hard way…"
[22:58] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Yes, killing is very easy isn't it?"
[22:59] Happy: Hope turns a little, ready to protect Zubera if necessary.
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (protect Zubera? o.O)
[22:59] Happy: (for Promise's sake)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie also notices the dangerous situation and appears to be ready to cast a spell
[23:01] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "We are only going to do a simpel test, if you can materalize…"
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "I'm too weak to materalize, I didn't come here to talk to once such as you-"
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Michicora "Then you will be hunted down."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "I don't take kindly to threats…"
[23:05] Shadowcaller: (NPC conversation:S)
[23:06] Happy: //Z-Zubera, you are already being hunted. If you pass this test, y-you will b-be free.
[23:07] Shadowcaller: /I can't materalize… and I won't be killed by her or any of her likes./
[23:09] Happy: Hope turns to Michicora. "If that is all you came for, then you can leave. You can see that she's much w-weaker than she u-used to be, before she released all the sp-spirits." Her tone is firm, though she can't help stuttering.
[23:11] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Then I will wait here until you can materalize."
[23:13] Happy: (What is Cessie doing?)
[23:14] Shadowcaller: (She is still trying to see if there is going to be a fight or something, but now as it appears to hhave calm down, she is only looking at Michicora.)
[23:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /We can't have her stay here…/
[23:15] Happy: "You can't stay here," Hope says firmly.
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Why?"
[23:16] Happy: "This village is a home, not your hunting grounds. "
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "I'm hunting her, not someone else."
[23:18] Happy: "She doesn't live here."
[23:18] Shadowcaller: "She can be summoned here."
[23:18] Happy: "What test do you need to do?"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "I need to see if she still is a prey, a blood sample."
[23:19] Happy: "How will that prove anything?"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "It will."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "Done it before."
[23:20] Happy: "That doesn't answer the question."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "Neither I or you need to know how it works, it just dose."
[23:22] Happy: "Z-Zubera needs to know how it works."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "Why? She only need to give me her blood."
[23:25] Happy: "And how w-will you get her bl-blood if she does not m-manifest? You need her c-consent. And for that, I think sh-she will need to know how it works."
[23:26] Shadowcaller: "She will give me just a drop of her blood, it will be sent to Kuori."
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "Thats it."
[23:28] Happy: /Can y-you do that?/
[23:29] Happy: (I'm trying to break Kyou…)
[23:29] Shadowcaller: /…I hate him so much./
[23:29] Happy: /Y-you know I'm his Chosen One, don't you?/
[23:30] Shadowcaller: /I know, I don't care./
[23:30] Happy: /If you don't do this, he'll always hunt you./
[23:31] Shadowcaller: /I won't be give up to his threats, I still have my pride./
[23:32] Happy: /That he even makes this offer… it's because Promise interceded for you./
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (Note, I'm going to rule-call some things about the lie-detector, its alredy taken care of.)
[23:33] Happy: (I know. I was being silly)
[23:33] Happy: (Of course if Wolfie was Aegnor, he'd totally try to check on that pants statement xD)
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (Haha.)
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (Like I would know that:P)
[23:34] Happy: bah, i'm always cold
[23:34] Shadowcaller: (Hey, I wasn't wearing any pants for a few hours too.)
[23:34] Shadowcaller: (But no one would like to know that thought^^)
[23:34] Happy: (heehee)
[23:35] Happy: /Promise wants y-you safe from Kuori./
[23:35] Shadowcaller: /I'm not weak…/
[23:36] Happy: /Nor is Kuori./
[23:37] Shadowcaller: /He killed me! I won't give a thing to that bastard!/
[23:38] Happy: Hope is struggling to control her panic. /He k-killed you because of what y-you were d-doing! And if he doesn't stop the hunt, P-Promise could d-die defending y-you!/
[23:41] Shadowcaller: /…Its not so simple./
[23:41] Happy: Hope is breathing rapidly.
[23:42] Happy: Blinking back tears. Probably making a poor impression on Michicora.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: /I'm… sorry… I can't talk… I'm so sorry…/
[23:44] Shadowcaller: /I will give him that… tell her that…/
[23:44] Shadowcaller: Zubera is gone again
[23:44] Happy: "She will give him that," Hope says in a quavering voice.
[23:45] Shadowcaller: Michicora nods Cessie is trying to comfort Hope the best way she can
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "I will be outside." Michicora says and leave the hut
[23:46] Happy: Hope sinks to the floor, crying and shaking.
[23:47] Shadowcaller: Cessie is with her "Shhh… I'm here…"
[23:49] Happy: Hope holds on to her, crying into her shoulder.
[23:49] Happy: Simone moves away and stays silent.
[23:50] Shadowcaller: (getting a glas of water.)
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[23:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Its okay, you will be alright."
[23:54] Happy: "Sh-she didn't want to. i h-had to argue w-with her."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "You were very brave, you faced your fears in the right way.. you surived."
[23:56] Happy: "I w-wish Promise were here."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "I wish both him and Aegnor were here, but there is nothing we can do right now, we need to be strong okay?"
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "You are very strong Hope."
[00:01] Happy: Hope nods. "Promise w-would have handled it better."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Well, she didn't do that to him, you have been throught so much…"
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Its understadable."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "I don't think I would be able to handle it as good as you."
[00:06] Happy: "I did it for him. She t-terrifies me."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "She have changed… you never told me what happend at the theathre."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks directly into Hopes eyes, she smiles reasuringly
[00:08] Happy: "D-didn't Promise t-tell you?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (Did he?)
[00:09] Happy: (Yeah, after Hope fell asleep, and she and Murska told him to talk to Zubera)
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (Well. cross that out then.)
[00:10] Happy: (Maybe she wants to hear Hope's version of events?)
[00:11] Shadowcaller: (I guess.)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "He never told your side of the story."
[00:14] Happy: "It w-was the v-void." Hope puts her hand to her face, tentatively, needing to know that it's still there, but afraid to check. "It was - Cessie, I've faced death before. This was worse. M-much worse."
[00:16] Shadowcaller: "I don't think I can imagine that Hope, but I understand that it must have been a terrifying experience."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: Her voice is filled with nothing but empathy, but Hope knows that as she said, can't understand
[00:21] Happy: "I don't w-want you to be able to. If y-you could… " She shudders. "I have nightmares."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Well, you will get over it in time, time heals all wounds after all, and Promise will heal them faster I guess." She smiles, trying to remain as supporting as possible
[00:31] Happy: Hope nods, raggedly. "L-let's talk about s-something else."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Yes… like what we are going to do with /her/."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: She nods in the direction of the entrance
[00:32] Shadowcaller: (ohh Murska.)

[00:57] Shadowcaller: (So… where were we?)
[00:57] Happy: [00:31] Happy: Hope nods, raggedly. "L-let's talk about s-something else."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Yes… like what we are going to do with /her/."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: She nods in the direction of the entrance
[00:57] Happy: "I don't think she'll leave until she gets the bl-blood."
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "If she keeps away from me, then i'm all for it."
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "She don't appear to be the most social of persons anyway."
[00:58] Happy: "Does Helena know she's here?"
[01:00] Shadowcaller: "I don't think so, why?"
[01:00] Happy: "I think she would want to know there's another god's Servant here."
[01:00] Shadowcaller: "I guess I should contact her then… will you be okay?"
[01:01] Happy: "Yes," she says, wiping her eyes.
[01:04] Shadowcaller: Cessie stays with Hope for a while, making sure she really /is/ okay
[01:05] Happy: Hope picks up Promise's cloak, that he left behind when stepping into the circle, and puts it over her shoulders.
[01:05] Happy: She seems to be okay. Ish.
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes off to a corner where she still can keep a watch on Hope
[01:06] Shadowcaller: /Helena?/
[01:06] Happy: /Yes, my dear?/
[01:06] Happy: /You're back from the spirit realm?/
[01:07] Shadowcaller: /Deep realm, not that I know the difference./
[01:07] Shadowcaller: /But I am, it was not a very pleasant experience./
[01:08] Happy: /But weren't you going to the Spirit Realm for the Yokai wolf?/
[01:08] Shadowcaller: /We could not go, only wolfen and elves could go./
[01:09] Happy: /You mean Aegnor and Promise went alone? /
[01:09] Happy: Hope seems composed, for now, and decides to head outside to make sure Michicora isn't making trouble.
[01:10] Shadowcaller: /They did./ She can feel a sting of sorrow from Cessie
[01:11] Shadowcaller: Michicora is right outside the hut, as promised. She appears to be observing every moment in the village. "So… what is going on here Hop?"
[01:11] Shadowcaller: *Hope
[01:11] Happy: /I'm sorry. That must be very hard for you and Hope./
[01:13] Happy: "The elves and Wolfen life here in freedom. We are trying to make sure it stays that way."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: /It is, but we can handle it, she is under a bit more preassure then I am right now thought, with Zubera and…/
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "A nobel goal."
[01:15] Happy: "We want to move the population elsewhere though. Away from the Hyrillian Empire."
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "That will be hard."
[01:16] Shadowcaller: /A servant of Kuori is here, in the village./
[01:16] Happy: /Oh? What for?/
[01:17] Shadowcaller: /She apperently wants to see if Zubera is a "prey" or not./
[01:17] Shadowcaller: /By taking some of her blood…/
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "There are bandits and gurds everywhere."
[01:18] Happy: /What?! Is Zubera in danger?/
[01:19] Shadowcaller: /Kuori is hunting her./
[01:20] Happy: "Yes. We're aware of that. My mate and another have gone to find the spirit that used to protect them."
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "Where are you going?"
[01:21] Shadowcaller: /If she don't give him her blood, he will keep hunting her./
[01:21] Happy: /And if she does? /
[01:21] Happy: "We don't know yet. We've only been here a few days."
[01:22] Shadowcaller: /He will see if she still is a prey or not, or so I was told./
[01:22] Shadowcaller: "North and east are bad, just desert or mountains."
[01:24] Happy: /How much blood? / /Zubera? Can you hear me?/
[01:25] Shadowcaller: /Just a drop I heard./
[01:25] Happy: "We flew from the west. But what is to the south?"
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Zubera: /I can… I'm not feeling very well right now./
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "South, some of our people, not all that friendly thought."
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "Open plains."
[01:28] Happy: /Cessie told me about Kuori./
[01:28] Happy: (What is to the west? I don't think we ever said)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: (To the west is Kyou and the sea.)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: /She did? What di she tell you?/
[01:30] Shadowcaller: *did
[01:30] Happy: (Wait… we came from the west though, didn't we?)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (we did.)
[01:31] Happy: (We didn't come over the sea though)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (We came in from the south-west.)
[01:33] Happy: (Oh, okay)
[01:33] Happy: /She said that Kuori is hunting you and wants your blood./
[01:34] Shadowcaller: /Once I'm strong enough to manifest yes…/
[01:36] Shadowcaller: /He keeps hunting me, whatever I do./
[01:38] Happy: /Will this stop him?/
[01:38] Shadowcaller: /Maybe, maybe now… what do you feel toward him?/
[01:38] Shadowcaller: /Have you met him?/
[01:39] Happy: /No, I haven't. I know he helped when Cessie and the others fought the worms, but that's all I know./
[01:41] Shadowcaller: /Helped… he killed me./
[01:41] Shadowcaller: /Or well, almost killed me./
[01:42] Shadowcaller: /And I deserved it, but yet even after I have tried to reform he keeps going after me./
[01:43] Happy: /Maybe this will prove to him that you are reformed?/
[01:46] Happy: /Why are you not strong enough to manifest? I thought you were stronger than me./
[01:47] Shadowcaller: /I haven't been able to recover yet… I have been left weakened, there is something else thought…/
[01:47] Happy: /What is it?/ *concerned
[01:48] Shadowcaller: /The gate, I start to worry about what they are doing to it, should I do something?/
[01:49] Happy: /What has happened to the gate? I know very little about it./
[01:50] Shadowcaller: /Humans are manupulating its energies, they aren't veyr succesful, but yet they keep going./
[01:50] Happy: /Are Aegnor and Promise in danger?/
[01:53] Shadowcaller: /No, they can't touch the spirit realm, just the gate./
[01:53] Happy: /But if something happens to the gate… will they be trapped?/
[01:55] Shadowcaller: /Nothing will happen to the gate Helena, its ancient and untouchable, it would be like taking away the sun./
[01:55] Happy: Hope: "I mean to see these people safely to a place where they can live without fear, however long it takes."
[01:56] Happy: /Is there anything I can do for you? I don't want you in danger./
[01:57] Shadowcaller: /Not right now, but if that servant gets hostile… I would appriciate you help Helean./
[01:57] Happy: /When do you think you will be strong enough to manifest?/
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "No place is without fear."
[01:58] Shadowcaller: /In a few days hopefully, I will try to concentrate on that./
[01:59] Shadowcaller: /I'm glad for your support Helena./
[01:59] Happy: /Be well. I will go and talk to the Servant./ /Cessie, where is the Servant?/
[02:00] Shadowcaller: /Right outside our hut I think./
[02:00] Shadowcaller: /Be well sister./
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (ZUbera.)
[02:02] Happy: Helena's illusion approaches Hope and Michicoro, wearing her stylized battle armour. "Greetings, Servant of Kuori."
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "Who are you?"
[02:03] Happy: "Helena, Protector of Gallion and Eldest of the Risen Ones."
[02:04] Shadowcaller: "Really? Well, I am Michicora, huntress."
[02:04] Happy: "Why have you come?"
[02:05] Shadowcaller: "To end a prey, one way or another."
[02:06] Happy: "The people of this village are under my protection. I expect you to ensure that you bring no harm to them."
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "I won't."
[02:07] Happy: (She won't ensure? Or she won't harm them?)
[02:07] Shadowcaller: (harm them I suppose, she is a woman of few words.)
[02:07] Happy: (okay)
[02:08] Happy: (my bit was badly worded anyway)
[02:08] Shadowcaller: (all my texts are badly woreded:P)
[02:08] Shadowcaller: (Ina came up with quite a epic story)
[02:08] Happy: (good :) )
[02:09] Happy: (athough i'm surprised you can keep up with two roleplays at once)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (Some bard died, then Lex had sex with him for some reason
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (He came abck that is)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: *back
[02:09] Happy: (whew!)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: He died and came back, then she had sex with him.)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (Turns out he was some evil angel that possessed the dead bard.)
[02:10] Shadowcaller: (And now she carry his evil child o.O)
[02:10] Happy: (eep)
[02:10] Happy: (kill it!)
[02:12] Shadowcaller: (lets continue?)
[02:13] Happy: "You have threatened my sister Zubera, yes?/
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "I told her the truth."
[02:16] Happy: "If you decide to hunt her, you cannot do it here. I will not have my people caught in the crossfire."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "Kuori will hunt her."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, she don't say much to respond to)
[02:19] Happy: "Then tell Kuori he cannot hunt her here."
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "I do not know when Kuori would come, I'm only doing him a favor right now."
[02:24] Shadowcaller: "I am a huntress, not a servant."
[02:27] Happy: "Then if you will not deliver the message, I will have to tell him myself."
[02:27] Happy: And the illusion disappears.
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "What is her relationship to Zubera?"
[02:29] Happy: "They are allies."
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "What are your relationship to her?"
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "And the wizards?"
[02:35] Happy: "Helena is… an ally, I suppose. A friend, though I don't know her well. She protects this village just as we do."
[02:35] Shadowcaller: "I meant to Zubera."
[02:36] Happy: "My mate is her Chosen."
[02:36] Shadowcaller: "The wizards then?"
[02:36] Happy: "You will have to ask her."
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "Tell me if you need anything."
[02:39] Shadowcaller: She sits down, but still appears to ready to move at slightest sound
[02:43] Happy: Hope goes back inside.
[02:43] Happy: Clutching Promise's cloak around her.
[02:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie is inside, sitting down in her "bed"
[02:44] Shadowcaller: "Are you okay?"
[02:44] Happy: "I'm okay. Just worried."
[02:45] Happy: Helena: /Do you think Helios would help to protect Zubera, if necessary?/
[02:46] Shadowcaller: /If he got something in return, mind you, he is as likely to tell Kuori all about it… but he don't like Kuori either so maybe not./
[02:49] Happy: /Zubera needs a few more days to regain her strength. Until then, I will just have to keep our guest under observation./
[02:50] Happy: Michicoro will no doubt notice that she is being watched. But so far not even the most belligerant Wolfen seem to think it a good idea to challenge her.
[02:51] Shadowcaller: (Good idea
[02:52] Shadowcaller: /Okay, I guess we have to endure her company then./
[02:59] Happy: Hope looks at the circle, wishing that Promise and Aegnor would appear in it. "Cessie… Can I stay here tonight? I want to be here when they come back."
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "Of course you can… we will all be here tonight."
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "We need to be together when they are gone."
[03:00] Happy: "I'm sure they'll be back by morning."
[03:01] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… maybe… if not, we should go Kyou tomorrow."
[03:02] Happy: "Only if /she/ comes too. I don't think we should leave her here."
[03:02] Shadowcaller: "She looks quite… different."
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "Not sure she would go well there."
[03:09] Happy: "I suppose… she can't force Z-zubera to appear. And I don't think she'll hurt anyone else… it's just… she's so cold."
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "How do you mean?"
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "We could always have Helena disguise her I suppose…"
[03:12] Happy: "The other servants we've known seemed to care about mortals, in their own strange ways. But she only seems to be sizing them up as potential combatants."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "I know what you mean… she is a warrior, nothing else."
[03:16] Happy: "I fight to protect the people I care about. I hunt to feed them. I don't see why one would kill without that purpose."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: "I'm sure she have some type of purpose, but what that would be, I have no idea."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: (So, should we continue tomorrow?)
[03:19] Happy: (Yeah. So we'll say they go to sleep then?)
[03:19] Shadowcaller: (Its morning:P)
[03:20] Happy: (It is? They've done a lot since then)
[03:20] Shadowcaller: (Well, after noon then.)
[03:20] Happy: (Spoke to Dal, saw Seren's lesson, Sent the men off, waited a few hours for the Servant to arrive, had a panic attack and recovered, and then had more talk)
[03:21] Shadowcaller: (Oh well, tomorrow is going to be s strange day for them, wonder what Helenas disguise for Michicora would be ^^)
[03:24] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, good night.)
