Kyou 31

[21:53] Shadowcaller: You wake up I guess? Arik have been studying that book the whole night
[21:53] Happy: Hope didn't go back to sleep.
[21:53] Happy: What with Arik not being able to be trusted and all >.>
[21:54] Shadowcaller: Michicora has been watching Arik the whole night
[21:55] Shadowcaller: Cessie wakes up "Uhh… I didn't oversleep did I?"
[21:55] Happy: Hope: "We need to talk."
[21:56] Shadowcaller: Cessie that is still tired yawns sleepily "Sure… is there something wrong?"
[21:56] Happy: She doesn't care that Arik heard her.
[21:56] Happy: "Yes. Arik sent Simone to deal with Helios last night, and it nearly killed her."
[21:57] Shadowcaller: Arik: "That is not exactly true, it was the girl who suggested it."
[21:58] Happy: "She also suggested that I was her mother and that the walls of Kyou were made of butterflies!"
[21:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks shocked, not really sure what to say "What?… Arik, what is this?"
[21:58] Happy: "She was not in her right mind, and you can hardly pretend you weren't responsible for what happened."
[22:00] Happy: (Is Simone able to wake up?)
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "How… this is crazy, how-" She shakes her head, "How could you do this? Hope is right, Simone was not right in her mind. How dare you use her in that state?"
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Simone is still pretty tired but that dosen't mean she don't wake up
[22:01] Shadowcaller: (I often wake up, even when I have sleep for like 4 hours, on a saturday:S)
[22:03] Happy: Simone blinks, hearing her name, but is kind of groggy.
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "I- Cessie, Helios would not hurt the girl. I would never have sent her there if I belived she would be be harmed in any way I would never have-"
[22:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I don't belive this…"
[22:03] Happy: "She came back unconscious and naked, and very nearly dead of cold."
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Arik coldly "So… you just let her go? You could not even wait one night?"
[22:06] Happy: Simone tries to sit up, but suddenly realizes she's naked.
[22:07] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I don't belive there would have been any change if the girl had gone then or if she had gone now, if Helios was out to hurt her, there is nothing we could have done."
[22:08] Happy: "We'll never know that, will we? The fact is you sent a sick and drugged child into danger after you agreed you wouldn't."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Thats your exhuse?…"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I'm sorry okay? We don't have much time, you have no idea whats going on here."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "She is still alive sin't she?"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: *isn't
[22:11] Happy: "Maybe you could have told us what was going on."
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Thats not the point Arik! Ugh, I can't belive… how could you do this?!"
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "You are supposed to one who knows! All this experience and you do this?"
[22:12] Happy: "If anyone had done that to Cessie, you would have ripped them to pieces. But you think Simone doesn't deserve the same respect?"
[22:13] Happy: Simone is inside the sleeping bag, barely peering out.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "This is large okay? I never knew she was going to be hurt and I just did what I thought was best at the time."
[22:15] Happy: "Can I have some clothes?" Simone whispers in a very small, broken voice.
[22:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie is about to yell at Arik again, but he interrupts her "The gate, they have found a way of manipulating the gates energies." (he don't even hear Simone, or just ignore her. Most of his attention is aimed at Cessie right now.)
[22:18] Happy: "Cessie, I think your clothes will fit her better than mine," Hope says.
[22:19] Shadowcaller: Cessie shifts her concentration from Arik a moment "I didn't take much change with me, this was supposed to be a short journey after all."
[22:20] Happy: (Not even a single change of clothing?)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: She glances back at Arik: "We talk about that later, I need to do something else…"
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Lets check my back-pack."
[22:23] Happy: "Please make him go away," Simone whispers.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: Arik's expression is as always hidden by his hood, but he just turns around and goes back to reading his book
[22:24] Shadowcaller: (I guess only Hope can hear her whisper?)
[22:25] Happy: (I can't tell you what your characters here >.>)
[22:25] Happy: *hear
[22:25] Shadowcaller: (Well, she is not that near Simone, I imgaine she can hear her say something, but not make out the words.)
[22:25] Shadowcaller: *imagine
[22:26] Shadowcaller: To Hope "What did she say?"
[22:26] Happy: "She wants Arik to leave. Which is understandable."
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "I still cn't belive he did something like this, how could he…"
[22:28] Shadowcaller: *can't
[22:30] Happy: Hope watches Arik to see if he moves.
[22:31] Shadowcaller: He don't, it looks like he is concentrating on his book, but its hard to tell with his hood
[22:31] Shadowcaller: (he is in the other end of the camp.)
[22:32] Happy: "Arik, go read your book somewhere else."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: He donsn't move until Cessie adds "Get away…"
[22:33] Shadowcaller: He gets away without a word
[22:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie bends down so she is face to face with Simone "How do you feel?" She asks gently.
[22:35] Happy: Simone starts crying. "Did he…?"
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "He's gone Simone…" Her voice sounds a bit broken as she says that
[22:37] Happy: "I don't remember what he did to me," she says. She won't meet Cessie's eyes.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "You don't need to talk about it Simone, just try to relax."
[22:39] Happy: "Please tell me."
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "…I wasn't there."
[22:40] Happy: "…. then he could have…"
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Hope, can you tell her what happend?"
[22:43] Happy: "Get me some clothes!" Simone screams.
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Cessie tries to find her some clothes in her backpack, her expression is not a happy one, she look very uncomfortable
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "I think… I found something."
[22:47] Shadowcaller: She takes up one of her brown dresses and gently puts it down in front of Simone and then steps back
[22:49] Happy: Simone pulls it on quickly, trying to stay covered up by the sleeping bag as much as possible.
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie suddenly looks very tired, she sits down on the ground.
[22:51] Happy: Then she stands up, a little shakily. "Where you going next?"
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "We are going back I guess…"
[22:51] Happy: "Kyou?"
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "No, back to Gallion."
[22:54] Happy: "Which way is Gallion?" she asks. Hope indicates the direction, and Simone glances that way, then turns and starts walking the opposite direction.
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "Simone?"
[22:56] Happy: "Leave me alone."
[22:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks hurt for a second, more hurt then she really should have been
[22:57] Shadowcaller: She don't reply
[22:57] Happy: Hope runs after her. "Simone, you can't go off by yourself."
[22:58] Happy: "I not staying with him," Simone snarls fiercely. "He not using me again. I not a whore."
[22:58] Shadowcaller: "Using you? Simone… he can't have done that."
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "Hope can tell you he didn't and there are other reasons too…" She looks quite disgusted at the veyr thought of that
[23:01] Shadowcaller: *very
[23:03] Happy: "Never trust anyone." Simone mutters. Hope doesn't say anything, but just picks the girl up and carries her back to the camp.
[23:03] Happy: She's already shivering again
[23:03] Shadowcaller: (Well, looks like she learned Helios first lesson…)
[23:04] Happy: (She already knew that. It was Aegnor and Promise that convinced her to relax her own mistrust)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie is not really sure what do, she just want to comfort Simone somehow
[23:07] Happy: "Simone, if you had been raped, you would have been injured when I treated you last night. And you'd be in a lot of pain right now. I promise you, that didn't happen."
[23:08] Happy: Simone looks at Cessie, confused. "But… then why you so angry at him? He did something bad."
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "He let you go and meet Helios in that state? You were cold and hurt when Hope found you."
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "I never would… WHat he did to you was stupid, but I promise you, he didn't… touch you."
[23:12] Happy: "Helios…." Simone crinkles up her face. "There was a book…. I remember."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "A book? What book Simone?"
[23:16] Happy: "I not know."
[23:17] Happy: "There was a book with her when she returned. I didn't pay any attention to it." Hope looks around for the book, which should be somewhere near her own bedroll.
[23:18] Shadowcaller: SHe finds a blue book with a golden outline
[23:20] Happy: Hope hands it to Simone.
[23:22] Happy: Simone looks at it. "The other books were flying away from me. Helios broke his word."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "Flying away?… do you want to talk about it?"
[23:26] Happy: "How much do you remember about yesterday? You were suffering from hypothermia when everyone met, so we gave you a drink that affected your mind."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "Yes, and then we let Arik guard you…"
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "Which was a misstakes. I'm so sorry Simone, I should… I will never trust him with you again."
[23:32] Happy: "Helios was talking to me. And then Mamma… " Her eyes narrow. "No. Helios pretend to be my Mamma. "
[23:33] Happy: /Give it back!/ she demands. Helios should know from her mind that the only possession she really values is the lock of her mother's hair.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: /It never left you… I'm not cruel Simone, I just wanted to teach you a lesson./
[23:35] Happy: (It would have been in her saree)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Simone should find the lock in the circle, with the saree.)
[23:36] Happy: (When did that stuff reappear?)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: (Some time when you were talking.)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (Who is deadpan anyway?)
[23:38] Happy: (Rex/Pru)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (I see.)
[23:41] Happy: Simone runs over to the circle, grabs a stick, and disturbs enough of the powder to break the circle before falling to her knees and digging through the pockets of her saree until she finds the lock of hair.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: She finds it rather quickly
[23:44] Happy: /You pretended to be my Mamma. You are cruel./
[23:46] Shadowcaller: /I didn't pretend to be your mother, not more then I "pretend" to be Helia or Nidra./
[23:46] Shadowcaller: /It was your memory of her./
[23:47] Happy: Simone gets dressed into her own clothing. /My mother never say the things you say to me last night in her voice/
[23:48] Shadowcaller: /I never claimed it was a perfect memory, I had to add a few things there myself to cover the holes. You don't remember your mother as well as you think…/
[23:48] Happy: /Don't ever do it again/
[23:49] Happy: "Simone?"
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /I won't./
[23:49] Happy: Hope goes to the circle and takes Promise's cloak. "I think you should put Cessie's dress on over your saree. You're still chilled. I'd let you wear Promise's cloak, but it's too long for you."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Simone… is it okay if we move now?"
[23:54] Happy: "She needs to eat something. And I think I should carry her, or you should cast a fly spell on her. She's going to be weak for a few days."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "Let her eat something first, I'm not going to move until she is better."
[23:57] Happy: Hope makes a warm meal for Simone. Well, for the rest of them too, but it probably would have been a cold meal if Simone hadn't been ill.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: Arik don't return to the meal, Michicora sits with you, but dosen't say much.
[00:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Feeling better Simone?"
[00:00] Happy: "Yes, now that I knowing I not—"
[00:01] Happy: She blinks. Suddenly it all comes together. The fight with the undead wizard. Arik's bony arm. And Cessie being sure that Arik couldn't have raped her. "Arik is undead, isn't he?"
[00:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "If you like to put it that way, yes. He choose that way to live."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Or unlive rather."
[00:04] Happy: "Hmph." Simone looks at her book.
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "And I really belived it would make him better then this…"
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "He told me quit much about it, when I was younger. But I never actually belived he would go throught with it."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: /*quite
[00:06] Shadowcaller: The book have a few scratches on it, but is otherwise fine.
[00:06] Happy: "Is this being safe to open?"
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "I can feel magic about it, can't say if its bad or good magic thought."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "If you don't know what it is, you should not open it until we got it checked out by someone who knows more of magic then me."
[00:09] Happy: "Like Arik? How I know he not steal it like he did other book?"
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "He stole a book?"
[00:12] Happy: "He send me to Helios so Helios can steal it. I not get to read it, and then Helios not let me read any of the other books in the library either." Simone sounds very bitter.
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "Gah, he won't hear the end of this, that idiot…"
[00:15] Happy: /Why a god need to steal from someone who has nothing?/
[00:16] Shadowcaller: /I never stole anything from you Simone./
[00:16] Happy: /You broke our deal/
[00:17] Shadowcaller: /Yes, but that was not stealing was it? SOme secrets needs to be hidden from the eyes of mortals after all./
[00:19] Happy: /I give you book and you give me nothing in return. That stealing./
[00:20] Shadowcaller: /I could not give you the book you see? It needs to be hidden once again./
[00:20] Happy: /You say you had way for me to read it safely./
[00:21] Shadowcaller: /Oh, you could read it, but I didn't want you to./
[00:21] Happy: /But if you did not, you should have given me something for it. Instead, you give Arik something. That mean you steal from me./
[00:21] Shadowcaller: /I gave you a lesson… and I belive Helia gave you something too?/
[00:22] Happy: /What lesson is that? That you and Arik are worse than pimps?/
[00:24] Shadowcaller: /Don't trust anyone, especially not me?/
[00:24] Happy: /You break deals. So why I ever deal with you again?/
[00:24] Shadowcaller: /I can hardly see myself involved in anything that a pimp would be involved in thought…/
[00:25] Happy: /Pimps drug girls and take advantage of them. How that different than what you did?/
[00:26] Shadowcaller: /But I never drugged you, I just used a oppertinity to my advantage, just like when they left that hole in the deal open./
[00:26] Happy: /So? Maybe pimp find girl that someone else drug. That make him less a rapist?/
[00:27] Shadowcaller: /Would you call anyone that takes advantage on anyone a rapist? Your status of the female gender should not change anything…/
[00:29] Happy: /You god of knowledge. YOu not understand analogy or metaphor?/ *sneering tone in her mental voice*
[00:30] Shadowcaller: /Of course I do, I'm simply arguing that its not a very good one. I know many that would drug people to achive what they want, but I would not call them rapists./
[00:33] Happy: /So? You think because you not the one who drug me that you having clean hands./
[00:35] Shadowcaller: /Clean hands? I never claimed such a thing, I am the god of lies after all. I'm not ashamed of what I did./
[00:36] Happy: /You say you not steal from me./
[00:39] Shadowcaller: /I never actually said "I didn't steal from you" did I? Anyway, I can't concentrate you anymore, I have lot to deal with before it ends…/
[00:39] Happy: /You say /I never stole anything from you Simone.//
[00:40] Shadowcaller: /I did? Oh well, then I lied again./
[00:41] Shadowcaller: /Farwell…/
[00:41] Happy: /You still owe me./
[00:47] Shadowcaller: /Well see about that… later./
[00:48] Happy: Simone finishes her meal. The book is safely tucked away in one of her many pockets. "I ready."
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "I guess we can just get going then, I think Arik will follow us anyway. I suspect he is going to avoid me for now."
[00:49] Happy: "Good," Simone mutters.
[00:51] Happy: They head back towards Gallion then.
[00:51] Shadowcaller: They do
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Want to play out that part too, or should we end here?
[00:51] Happy: End here, I think.
[00:52] Shadowcaller: Okay
[00:54] Shadowcaller: That was quite a long session actually
[00:54] Shadowcaller: Between only us two that is
[00:54] Happy: yeah. Poor Simone.
[00:54] Shadowcaller: Yeah… she got pretty screwed over there
[00:55] Happy: Not as bad as it could have been. She'd have done a great deal to get that lock of hair back.
[00:55] Shadowcaller: If he not have put spells on it that is;)
[00:56] Happy: But it's still the original, right?
[00:56] Shadowcaller: It is
[00:58] Happy: Murska read the transcripts. He's pretty pissed off at Arik too.
[00:58] Shadowcaller: He is? >.>
[00:58] Happy: Well, if Aegnor knew, he would be
[00:59] Shadowcaller: Bah, you are always pissed off at Arik^^
[00:59] Happy: He *could* have waited until morning
[00:59] Happy: Then, if Helios had still screwed Simone over, Arik wouldn't have been to blame.
[01:00] Shadowcaller: Well, he is a bit impatient, and he didn't really think Simone would get hurt by it
[01:00] Happy: I guess Cessie and Aegnor still have their favours though, since Cessie didn't get the book.
[01:00] Shadowcaller: Well, Arik plans to teach her every spell in that book too
[01:01] Happy: Maybe, but it wasn't Cessie's deal.
[01:01] Happy: She wasn't part of the negotiations.
[01:01] Shadowcaller: Well, the favor was a completly other thing anyway
[01:01] Shadowcaller: Even if she had got the book, the favor would still remain
[01:03] Happy: so are there spells on any of Simone's belongings?
[01:03] Shadowcaller: Possibly, i haven't dicided anything yet
[01:03] Shadowcaller: But that would just be the thing Helios would pull
[01:04] Shadowcaller: A oppertunity…
[01:04] Happy: To take advantage of a drugged child.
[01:04] Happy: Real nice guy there….
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Well, he don't see any differenc between a drugged child and a foolish adult
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Everyone that can be used, will be used
[01:05] Happy: That's pretty evil
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Of course it is:P
[01:06] Happy: Yet Cessie deals with him
[01:06] Shadowcaller: Helios claim neutrality, that might be true in some cases, he can even be good
[01:06] Happy: And condemns Hope for dealing with Kuori
[01:06] Happy: Doing some good things doesn't make you a good person.
[01:06] Shadowcaller: All Cessies deals with him have been out of desperation really
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Its mainly Arik that really deals with him
[01:07] Shadowcaller: No, Helios is not a good person

[01:18] Happy: Simone is chaotic neutral. Hope chaotic good. Aegnor chaotic neutral. Promise neutral good. Cessie lawful good. Arik neutral evil.

[01:29] Shadowcaller: alignment on the gods… Kuori?
[01:29] Happy: no idea
[01:29] Shadowcaller: I would say lawful neutral
[01:30] Shadowcaller: Artari is pretty easy
[01:30] Shadowcaller: Helena…
[01:32] Shadowcaller: Neutral good? True neutral?
[01:33] Happy: well she did evil things in her life, but the more responsibility she gained, the more she began to take it seriously
[01:33] Shadowcaller: Chaotic neutral?
[01:33] Happy: No, I think her alignment just changed over the years
[01:34] Happy: evil when she was manipulating men for power
[01:34] Happy: but then moving towards good. though probably still lawful neutral. She'd kill to protect her people.
[01:34] Shadowcaller: SHe would eh?
[01:35] Happy: or Cessie
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Well, good characters could kill other people too
[01:46] Shadowcaller: Hmm… any other character…
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Most of the other characters are different kinds of evil anyway
[01:47] Happy: Zubera?
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Hm, I guess she would be true neutral right now
[01:47] Shadowcaller: But I'm not sure…
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Thats why I put her in the middle
[01:49] Shadowcaller: What did you say Promise was?
[01:49] Happy: neutral good
[01:50] Shadowcaller: I guess that makes sense, not chaotic good thought?
[01:50] Shadowcaller: And where exactly would you put Helios? Neutral Evil?
[01:51] Happy: yeah
[01:51] Happy: same as Arik
[01:53] Shadowcaller: Why do you put Hope as chaotic and Promise as neutral?
[01:54] Happy: Hope values individual freedom very highly. That's why the geas horrified her.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: And Promise?
[01:55] Happy: And that's why she told Ai that she wouldn't be angry at him for using his own best judgement in affecting people's desires
[01:56] Happy: I'm not sure exactly. Just my perception. Wolfie might have a different opinion.
[01:56] Shadowcaller: Well, Cessie is easy at least
[01:56] Happy: He values honour very highly, which is lawful. But he also values freedom. So, neutral.
[01:56] Happy: Yeah, Cessie's obvious
[01:57] Shadowcaller: Any types of requests for the next villian?
[01:57] Shadowcaller: I'm still working on two concepts…
[01:57] Happy: Human, right?
[01:57] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[01:58] Happy: It would be nice for Hope to be able to fight it
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Thats the first concept, basically a anti-magic fighter
[01:59] Shadowcaller: He likes to prove that Wizards are as weak as anyone else, got a short backstory and such…
[01:59] Shadowcaller: Then I had a few wizards of course, including a mind mage
[02:00] Shadowcaller: Mind rape and such…
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Arik is going to use a /lot/ of necromancy
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Would Hope have anything against that?
[02:02] Happy: Only if she thinks the spell itself is evil, or being used for evil.
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Rise guards as zombies/other types of undead)
[02:03] Happy: yeah, evil
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Well, if the undead are used for good then?
[02:04] Happy: it's still using people's bodies against their will
[02:04] Happy: back to the freedom thing
[02:04] Shadowcaller: I doubt they mind:P
[02:04] Shadowcaller: They are dead after all
[02:04] Happy: their families would
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Lets say you save a lot of them? Protect a whole village?
[02:05] Shadowcaller: *a lot with them
[02:05] Happy: She'd still think it was evil
[02:06] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still of another mind actually, but I think even she is going to be disgusted by this
[02:06] Shadowcaller: Arik is trying to learn her necromancy too thought
