Kyou 34

[22:33] Shadowcaller: Anyway… where were we?
[22:34] Happy: We were sitting around mid morning talking about plans
[22:34] Shadowcaller: Yeah, and Arik asked Hope if she had any better ideas then raising the guards as undead
[22:35] Happy: "There's got to be something better in that book of yours. Something that doesn't enslave people."
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "Enslave? They are dead, I enslave them as much as a stone."
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "Just think them as golems or something like that."
[22:37] Happy: "But you're using their bodies…" She shudders. It's not something she can easily come to terms with
[22:37] Happy: "Maybe we should be moving on," Simone says.
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I would like to see this city of yours."
[22:38] Happy: "It only a village," Simone says dismissively.
[22:38] Happy: Hope puts out the fire, and they leave?
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Whatever it might be…"
[22:38] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[22:38] Happy: Hope continues to carry Simone, despite her objections.
[22:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie us quiet most of the journey, she is still distant to Arik
[22:42] Happy: Simone to Helios /Do you knowing ways to find people who are hiding?/
[22:42] Shadowcaller: /What do you mean?/
[22:43] Happy: /We needing to find a wizard, who is hiding. He is the one who is disturbing the gate/
[22:45] Shadowcaller: /Hiding?/
[22:45] Happy: /People wanting to arrest him./
[22:45] Happy: "Do you knowing where Jopo might be?" Simone asks Arik.
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "I think he is under arrest at the moment actually."
[22:46] Happy: "So we having to rescue him? And not kill him?"
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "In a way, I think they are keeping him alive so he can tell them exactly how to manipulate the gate."
[22:47] Happy: /I mistaken. He not in hiding, he been arrested./
[22:48] Shadowcaller: /I see, what do you wish to know thne?/
[22:48] Shadowcaller: *then
[22:49] Happy: /Do you know Jopo?/
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /Not as such no./
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /I might have heard of him, but I can't say I know him./
[22:50] Happy: /He is one who knows how to use gates. They needing him to close gate./
[22:52] Shadowcaller: /I see, so he is the one you need then? You need to find him?/
[22:53] Happy: /yes/
[22:54] Shadowcaller: /My information about the gate and its defenses are… limited I'm afraid./
[22:55] Shadowcaller: /Its hard for us gods… with one exception to effect things near the gate./
[22:55] Happy: /I sure you can learn more if you talk to Jopo./
[22:55] Happy: /Exception?/
[22:55] Shadowcaller: /Zubera.(
[22:55] Happy: /And you not wanting me to talk to her, or Helena/
[22:58] Shadowcaller: /Hmm… I guess you can tell her… tell her about the gate and you need her help to get past its defenses./
[22:58] Happy: /Good. I know she not want it to close with Mr Promise on wrong side. She love him./
[22:59] Shadowcaller: /Love him?/
[23:00] Happy: /I think so./
[23:00] Shadowcaller: /Emotions only means trouble, that is a lesson Helia had to learn…/
[23:00] Happy: /Well she less trouble than when she was crazy./
[23:01] Shadowcaller: /Of course, just do as I say and the gate will be saved./
[23:01] Happy: /And why should I believe that?/
[23:03] Shadowcaller: /Sine its in my intrests? Why would I want the gate t reemain closed? My connetion to the mortal realm cut../
[23:03] Shadowcaller: *to remain
[23:03] Happy: /But you said it was fate/
[23:05] Shadowcaller: /Well yes, the gate will close, but it must be opened again./
[23:06] Shadowcaller: /And you are the ones that are going to do it, its simple as that./
[23:06] Happy: /How you know we can't stop it from closing?/
[23:07] Shadowcaller: /Fate as I said right?/
[23:07] Happy: /Fate!/ Simone's voice scoffs. /You believe in fate?/
[23:09] Shadowcaller: /You didn't protest the first time I said that… needless to say "fate" just means that I'm quite sure of it. I have good information../
[23:10] Happy: /Then share it/
[23:11] Shadowcaller: /You remember the deep realm? Once I entered it, I learned this./
[23:12] Shadowcaller: /The gate is already closing, its just staggering a bit, as excpected for a thing that have been open for.. millions of years./
[23:12] Shadowcaller: /As we speak…/
[23:16] Happy: /So the humans in Kyou aren't doing it?/
[23:17] Shadowcaller: /Well, the ones send by the houses are… I think./
[23:17] Happy: /But you think it would close anyway, even if they weren't?/
[23:18] Shadowcaller: /No, of course not. They are the ones doing it./
[23:19] Happy: (bah. I misunderstood what you said)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (Simone might have too.P)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: *:P
[23:21] Happy: /So they are closing it now… how long do we have?/
[23:21] Shadowcaller: /Not sure… it can be any time now./
[23:29] Shadowcaller: (Getting another glas of water…)
[23:34] Happy: /And what do we need to do to open it again? You'd better give us the instructions pretty quickly, in case it closes soon./
[23:40] Shadowcaller: /You need to ask that Jopo character, I do not know./
[23:41] Happy: /You say 'Do just as I say and the gate will be saved'. So say what you want us to do./
[23:43] Shadowcaller: /I know what you need to do, but I don't know much about the gates defenses or how to manipulate it, and even if I knew, it would take a wizard to understand it./
[23:44] Shadowcaller: /And your not one I suppose?/
[23:44] Happy: /You know I not./
[23:46] Shadowcaller: /Well, I haven't sensed anything from you. But you should really have such thing checked girl, the gift of magic comes only to a few number of people./
[23:46] Happy: /Helia tell me I could not, first time I meet her./
[23:47] Shadowcaller: /Well, then we know, I never bothered to check since I know your family genes./
[23:47] Happy: /…. what?/
[23:47] Shadowcaller: /Never mind, its nothing you will understand./
[23:48] Happy: /What you know about Mamma? Only what you see in my mind!/
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /I know more about your family then you do Simone, some of your ancestors worked for me you know?/
[23:49] Happy: /How you know?/
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /How I know they worked for me?/
[23:50] Shadowcaller: /Or how I know they are of your blood?/
[23:51] Happy: /What make you think they my family?/ *very suspicious*
[23:53] Shadowcaller: /Well, lets see… Evaya is your mother correct? Her father was named Nil and was a informant to me during his days./
[23:54] Happy: /How do you know?/
[23:56] Shadowcaller: /His aunt Fiona was also working for me… I only employ people I know everything about Simone. I know the name of his child, and I also was informed about the name of his childs child./
[23:57] Happy: /That not mean she same person/
[23:59] Shadowcaller: /I saw her Simone and I saw the same person in your mind. And I don't really see why you act like this is something to be ashamed for?/
[00:00] Happy: She doesn't know herself why she's so upset. /But… you only know mother side, right?/
[00:01] Shadowcaller: /Yes… unless you want me to find out about the other side too?/
[00:01] Happy: /No!/
[00:01] Happy: /I have no father./
[00:02] Shadowcaller: /Thats intresting… no father eh? Why so ashamed?/
[00:04] Happy: /My mother only do what she have to. But whoever *he* was… no, I not want to know./
[00:05] Happy: She's ashamed that half her blood comes from someone who would use a woman that way.
[00:07] Shadowcaller: /Maybe he died before you were born? Did your mother eevr told you about him?/
[00:08] Happy: /She only say that I best thing in her life./ *very small voice* /I not think she know/
[00:09] Shadowcaller: /Very well… was there anything else?/
[00:11] Happy: /You… still not tell us what we need to do. I not wizard, but I can tell Arik and Cessie./
[00:13] Shadowcaller: /Its easy, you organize some attack, get control of the gate, ask that wizard Jopo what to do and the you open the gate,/
[00:14] Happy: /Get control of gate… you mean control city of Kyou?/
[00:15] Shadowcaller: /Well… have time to do whatever ritual that is needed to reopen the gate./
[00:17] Happy: /Okay. We do it then./
[00:18] Shadowcaller: /Great… you will notice when the gate closes…/
[00:18] Happy: /What will happen?/
[00:18] Shadowcaller: /Spirits will go insane./
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /The lesser ones first.. then the greater ones./
[00:19] Happy: /How long it take? Can't they all go home first?
[00:20] Shadowcaller: /The spirits won't notice or understand that the gate is closing, it have never happend before after all./
[00:21] Happy: /We need Aegnor…/
[00:24] Shadowcaller: /Well, then you have to wait and I doubt even a speaker can contact all spirits./
[00:25] Happy: /You have all my memories./
[00:25] Shadowcaller: /Well, most of them yes./
[00:26] Happy: /I want yours/
[00:26] Shadowcaller: /…you won't get my memories Simone./
[00:27] Happy: /What if the gate stays closed? Who would take care of your interests in the mortal world?
[00:28] Shadowcaller: /I have a lot of servants, you should not very about that./
[00:29] Shadowcaller: /If the gate would stay closed, then I would die anyway./
[00:30] Happy: /You would? Oh yes, without worshippers. But do anyone really worship you? Or they just deal with you?/
[00:31] Shadowcaller: /Worship is a strange thing… most gods and mortals belive I have no worshippers. But they are there, living among them in secret. They just don't show their worship as clearly as other worshippers do, they migth even pretend to worship other gods./
[00:32] Happy: /I never worship any god before. Now I know they only people, I never will./
[00:34] Shadowcaller: /You don't like gods that involve themselves in mortal affairs then? Then you can to Atari… he hardly interacts at all in the moertal world./
[00:34] Happy: /He still was person once, right?/
[00:35] Shadowcaller: /Not according to him, he got his past well covered for some reason…/
[00:36] Happy: /I sure that not stop you/
[00:36] Shadowcaller: /Its hard, but I'm looking, as always./
[00:37] Happy: (has the party reached Gallion yet?)
[00:37] Shadowcaller: (Lets say they have and call it a night?)
[00:38] Happy: Sounds good
[00:38] Happy: Simone's ambition surprises me sometimes
[00:38] Shadowcaller: What do you mean?
[00:39] Happy: trying to get Helios's memories
[00:39] Happy: if she did, wouldn't his persona completely dominate? xD
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Hm?
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Why would his persona diminate?
[00:40] Shadowcaller: *dominate
[00:40] Happy: He'd have memories going back thousands of years
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Right, since she is a mortal, she would likely go mad beacuse of that
[00:42] Happy: She'd remember being him. And she'd remember being herself. But the memories of being him would be so strong that it'd feel like she was Helios trapped in Simone's body rather than a girl with a god's memories.
[00:42] Shadowcaller: Oh, you mean like that? Possibly:P
[00:43] Shadowcaller: But he is afraid, he got a few plots going…
[00:43] Happy: heh
[00:43] Happy: No, she shouldn't succeed
