Kyou 4

[13:57] Happy: Simone wakes up first, sitting up and folding her blanket. She stands up and moves towards the door.
[13:58] Shadowcaller: /
[13:59] Shadowcaller: /Looks like one of your smallest kind have started to move, what dose this mean?/
[13:59] Murska: /She woke up./ 'Morning there.'
[13:59] Happy: "Good morning." She opens the door.
[14:00] Murska: 'We have something to discuss once you get back.' (This statement naturally implies that she better be back.)
[14:01] Happy: "I not be long."
[14:01] Shadowcaller: /Woke up? Hm, she seems to be… distancing herself from us./
[14:02] Murska: /You really seem quite new to this world./ Aegnor's thoughts have a slight humorous tone.
[14:02] Shadowcaller: /Yes, just a few days ago actually, I have just reached age./
[14:03] Murska: /It is difficult to explain something with no common reference point./
[14:03] Happy: She goes to her room to use the chamberpot and wash her hands and face, and is soon back. She sits down on the floor facing Aegnor. (is he on the floor, or in a chair?)
[14:03] Murska: (He's on the floor.)
[14:03] Murska: (Right next to Cessie's bed.)
[14:04] Happy: She takes out the new knife and sits twirling it idly.
[14:05] Murska: 'I've met a spirit who seems to have just arrived in this world and doesn't know anything about it.' Aegnor hands her the spyglass.
[14:05] Happy: Simone puts the knife down and takes the spyglass, looking through it.
[14:05] Shadowcaller: (she can see a fox-link humanoid spirit.)
[14:05] Shadowcaller: 'like
[14:05] Shadowcaller: *humanoid
[14:06] Happy: (Does she remember anything about it from the Magical Creatures book?)
[14:07] Shadowcaller: (Yes, its a Kitsune, they are unlike many spirits two-gendered (like many mortal creatures) they come in two sorts, the friendly trickster and the nobel helper.)
[14:08] Murska: Aegnor waits for her reaction.
[14:08] Happy: "Hello Mr Kitsune," Simone says, with a head bow (since she can't curtsey sitting down.)
[14:09] Happy: (Link:
[14:09] Happy: (note the title)
[14:09] Murska: (:P)
[14:09] Shadowcaller: /The kitsune bows elegantly before her "A honor to meet you mortal-kind."/
[14:10] Happy: (afk 10 minutes. budget time :P)
[14:10] Murska: (They can communicate?)
[14:10] Shadowcaller: (they can't.)
[14:10] Shadowcaller: (it just saw that she bowed with her head.)
[14:11] Murska: /She cannot hear or speak to you, or even see you without that artifact./
[14:12] Shadowcaller: /I see… yet another of my short-comings among your kind./
[14:14] Murska: /I'll ask her if she would allow you to share her mind./ 'His kind learn by sharing others' minds. There's some kind of a tradition about only connecting to the minds of the opposite gender. I promised him I'd ask everyone for their permission.' (Arik might be interested at this point.)
[14:15] Shadowcaller: Arik sigh, "How many spirits are there in this room anyway?"
[14:15] Murska: (I'll spend 10min playing GH then)
[14:15] Murska: 'Right now, there should be only one. Simone has the spyglass, however.'
[14:16] Shadowcaller: "I do not feel very safe sorrunded by them… I hope you have talked with more then one of them by now?"
[14:17] Murska: 'Yes. I managed to convince one to help us.'
[14:18] Shadowcaller: "You did? Well, at least thats something…"
[14:18] Shadowcaller: "Is it a powerful one?"
[14:19] Murska: 'I wouldn't know.'
[14:20] Shadowcaller: "We need to learn more of them… Jopo didn't know anything, there must be some kind of spirit knowledge in this village."
[14:20] Murska: 'They would be in hiding, from the emperor, if what you told me was right.'
[14:20] Happy: "It want to see my mind? Can I see his mind too?"
[14:21] Murska: /She wants to know if she'd see your mind aswell./
[14:23] Shadowcaller: /Well… I could lend her some of my knowledge, but it is I who possess her after all./
[14:25] Shadowcaller: /Oh, and also, as my father told me to warn any humans I might possess that they might feel a special energ within them./
[14:26] Shadowcaller: 'energy
[14:27] Murska: 'He told me that he could lend you some knowledge, but you wouldn't see his mind. And he told me to warn you that you might feel a special energy inside you. No, I don't know what that means.'
[14:27] Happy: "Yes." she says instantly, almost before he gets the words out. "I do it."
[14:29] Shadowcaller: /That is wonderful, can we start right now?/
[14:29] Shadowcaller: /Oh right… can you ask her if we cna start right now?/
[14:29] Shadowcaller: *can
[14:29] Murska: /She agrees to it, then./ 'Okay, get ready.'
[14:30] Happy: "How I get ready?"
[14:31] Murska: 'I don't think you have to do anything special.'
[14:31] Shadowcaller: /Just tell her to… I need to get in contacted with her mind./
[14:31] Murska: /Must she do something?/
[14:32] Shadowcaller: /Let me just…/
[14:32] Happy: Simone is sitting and watching him through the glass.
[14:33] Shadowcaller: Simone can feel something enter her body, it goes into her chest… she can feel a strange pleasure from this
[14:33] Shadowcaller: Suddenly she is not alpne in her own mind any more
[14:34] Shadowcaller: *alone
[14:35] Shadowcaller: Something is seeing the world throught her eyes, as much as she can see it, there is something else within her
[14:35] Happy: /Can you see everything I think?/
[14:36] Shadowcaller: Her right arm moves a bit, without her making it do so
[14:36] Shadowcaller: /This is… very strange./
[14:36] Shadowcaller: /How do you… I feel a bit trapped in here./
[14:37] Happy: /You mean my body? It is where I have always been./
[14:37] Murska: Aegnor watches Simone closely.
[14:38] Shadowcaller: /WHat a strange concept… Mind if I move around a bit?/
[14:39] Happy: /Okay./
[14:39] Shadowcaller: Simone moves around in a very different way from what she used too, extremly clumsy
[14:40] Shadowcaller: She soon trips over her own feets
[14:40] Happy: In her mind, she giggles. /You not very good at this./
[14:41] Shadowcaller: She can feel that the kitsune is feeling embaressed /I'm very new to this…/
[14:41] Shadowcaller: /Its a bit limited, but you feel so much else…/
[14:42] Happy: /Is okay. Humans take much longer to learn to walk./
[14:42] Happy: /You learn fast./
[14:43] Shadowcaller: /Thank you mortal, every of my kind are supposed to visit a mortal mind when they reach age, I am glad to have visited yours./
[14:43] Happy: /How old is you?/
[14:46] Shadowcaller: /Um… I don't understand your concept of ageing… but from looking at your mind.. I would say I am 13./
[14:46] Shadowcaller: /I think./
[14:47] Happy: /So you are young too./
[14:48] Shadowcaller: /Yes, by your concept yes, I would say I am quite young, once I have done this I will return to my father and my mother./
[14:50] Shadowcaller: /I have learned so much of you in so little time, just by looking at your mind… you are quite like us, but yet very different./
[14:52] Shadowcaller: /What do you wish to learn from me mortal? I must repay you somehow…/
[14:55] Happy: /Do you see these memories?/ She thinks of the images that Helia gave her.
[14:56] Shadowcaller: /…that is… I feel a familiarity, but only from the tales of my elders./
[14:56] Shadowcaller: /WHere did you see that?/
[14:56] Happy: She shows him her memory of the circle and her talk with Helia.
[14:58] Shadowcaller: /I did not think human spirits knew our tales… this one must know much indeed./
[14:59] Shadowcaller: /I must be very lucky to have choosen you as my possession mortal, this must be learned by my elders./
[14:59] Happy: /Do you know what it means?/
[15:00] Shadowcaller: /The memories you showed me was parts of out tales./
[15:01] Shadowcaller: /The beginning of the world…/
[15:01] Shadowcaller: /I never showed any intrest in those tales, not until I saw it now with my own eyes./
[15:02] Happy: /Do you know who Helia is?/
[15:03] Happy: ((ooh, I should totally rp Simone in Jack the Ripper))
[15:03] Shadowcaller: /I was taught by my fathers of the human spirits, the souls and the risen ones, this one you tell me about… have many names I think./

[15:13] Shadowcaller: (Lets just wait for happy…)
[15:15] Shadowcaller: /I do not know what she knows, I know very little actually, sorry for dissapointing you…/ (Just to continue on.)
[15:18] Murska: (aww. There went Ghaz)
[15:18] Shadowcaller: (He did?)
[15:18] Shadowcaller: (Who killed him?)
[15:18] Murska: (NS)
[15:18] Shadowcaller: Ahh
[15:19] Murska: (Well, I'll just have to adjust my plans a bit.)
[15:19] Shadowcaller: (Well, you will kill him too anyway…)
[15:20] Murska: (Snikrot just got some motivation to find out the Soul Shards. :P)
[15:21] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, indeed, next insanowar better have something special too.)
[15:25] Shadowcaller: (It should have different zones…)
[15:25] Shadowcaller: (One water, one ice, one volcano, one djungel…)
[15:25] Shadowcaller: *jungel
[15:28] Happy: /I am not disappointed. I only want to know everything, but I know that will never be./
[15:29] Shadowcaller: /ONLY want to know everything? That is quite the understatment mortal./
[15:30] Happy: Simone (mentally) grins cheekily. /I am too smart to choose a simple goal./
[15:33] Shadowcaller: The kitsune appears to beconfused by Simone's ambition /I never imagined something so grand, but if you you're up to the task…/
[15:34] Shadowcaller: /Is there something I can help you with along the way?/
[15:34] Happy: /A lesser task would be boring./
[15:35] Happy: /Do you know of the House of Masks? Of Zubera?/
[15:36] Shadowcaller: /I have seen it yes, both the place and the risen one, but I have not dared enter it… yes./
[15:36] Shadowcaller: *yet
[15:37] Happy: /Why is she called the risen one?/
[15:38] Shadowcaller: /Human souls risen by our left-over energy, you call them "gods"./
[15:39] Happy: /She was a human?/
[15:39] Shadowcaller: /They all were at the start./
[15:40] Happy: /Will you come back? After you return to your mama?/
[15:41] Shadowcaller: /I might be, you have sparked a intrest in me of this world, I would like to know more of it./
[15:41] Happy: /I would very much like to meet you again./
[15:41] Shadowcaller: /As do I, what is your name mortal?/
[15:41] Happy: /Simone. What is yours?/
[15:42] Shadowcaller: /Myubi, it is nice to know a mortals name./
[15:44] Happy: /If you wanting to talk to me again, you can come in, even if Aegnor is not with me./ She doesn't want to be dependent on Aegnor, after all.
[15:45] Shadowcaller: /I will come if you call Simone, I give you my word on this./
[15:45] Happy: /You can hear me?/
[15:45] Shadowcaller: /I can hear the ones I have shared body with, we will have a connection even once I leave you./
[15:46] Happy: Myubi might feel her delight at this news. /I am so glad to know you!/
[15:48] Shadowcaller: Aegnor can see that Simone looks very happy of some reason /As am I, you are the most intresting mortal I have ever meet, I hope we meet again…/
[15:49] Happy: (Of all two of us… :P)
[15:49] Shadowcaller: (well, yeah^^)
[15:49] Murska: (Nobody likes Aegnor. :P)
[15:49] Shadowcaller: (Too easy for him to boun eh?)
[15:49] Shadowcaller: 'bound
[15:51] Happy: Aegnor will also probably notice it's Simone showing happiness spontaneously, without any hidden motives.
[15:51] Happy: (And Simone likes Aegnor. :P)
[15:51] Shadowcaller: /Now, I need to leave I'm afraid, this is getting a bit claustofobic…/
[15:52] Happy: /Goodbye!/
[15:53] Shadowcaller: /Farwell../
[15:53] * moc.liamtoh|700enabflow#moc.liamtoh|700enabflow (Wolfbane) has joined the conversation.
[15:53] Murska: F1RST 1NV1T3, I call.
[15:53] Shadowcaller: The wierd feeling is gone again, the Kitsune too
[15:53] Wolfbane: morning
[15:54] Shadowcaller: Greetings
[15:54] Wolfbane: Did I miss anything
[15:54] Shadowcaller: Just the spirit conversation
[15:54] Murska: (did the spirit leave completely?)
[15:54] Shadowcaller: It did
[15:55] Murska: 'Everything okay?'
[15:55] Murska: (oh well)
[15:55] Shadowcaller: (You can ask that to Simone?)
[15:55] Murska: (Hm?)
[15:56] Shadowcaller: (If everything is okay.)
[15:56] Happy: brb
[15:56] Murska: (Yeah, I asked her)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: (Promise wakes up?)
[15:57] Wolfbane: (Sure)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: (Hm, can I take a shower?)
[15:57] Wolfbane: (Is Hope still asleep?)
[15:57] Wolfbane: (sure)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: (She is.)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: (Speak to each other <.<)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: brb
[15:58] Wolfbane: Promise wakes up and quietly gets off the bed not to wake up Hope.
[15:59] Wolfbane: (Oots was great)
[16:00] Happy: He fails. Hope wakes up and smiles at him sleepily.
[16:01] Happy: Simone looks awestruck. "It was amazing!" she says in her own language, which isn't the language she's been teaching Aegnor.
[16:02] Wolfbane: He smiles back. "Good morning." (Is anyone else in the room?)
[16:02] Happy: (Everyone's there. Cessie is asleep.)
[16:03] Wolfbane: (then Promise says that quietly not to wake her up)
[16:03] Murska: 'Excuse me?'
[16:03] Happy: Then a shadow passes over Hope's face as she remembers that Ai is gone.
[16:06] Wolfbane: Promise sees it and hugs Hope. "We'll finish this soon."
[16:07] Murska: ( brb)
[16:08] Happy: Simone blinks, then tries again in Common. "That was very much wonderment. He say his name is Myubi, and I can call him, and he say the gods were once being human, and that Helia know more than he thought, and he having to tell his mamma and pappa, and that he is glad to me being his choice." She's so entranced and giddy from the energy surge and the experience itself that she doesn't realize what she's let slip.
[16:10] Happy: Hope nods. "We will."
[16:11] Happy: She is no longer repulsed by his human body, but it doesn't give her any feelings of desire either.
[16:14] Murska: '…'Helia'?'
[16:17] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at her to try to cheer her up. "Maybe I can get some of that fur clothing we talked about while we are at it."
[16:18] Happy: Simone gets the 'Oh *
*' look for a millisecond, and then recovers her composure. "Helia being one of the gods, no?"
[16:19] Murska: 'And when have you met him?'
[16:19] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[16:19] Happy: Hope: "I'd like that."
[16:20] Happy: (better give Arik a chance to respond too)
[16:20] Shadowcaller: (What is he supposed to respond to?)
[16:21] Shadowcaller: (Helia and Helios are two different names of the same god.)
[16:21] Shadowcaller: (Just the female and male version of him/her.)
[16:22] Happy: (Yeah, wouldn't be startled at Simone's mention of him though?)
[16:23] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Are you sure you don't mentione Helios? WHen did you speak to this goddess?"
[16:23] Shadowcaller: *mean
[16:24] Shadowcaller: (Also, Simone is getting into Kyou II too…)
[16:24] Happy: (oooh, how?)
[16:24] Wolfbane: (heh)
[16:24] Happy: (and I'm roleplaying Simone in Jack the Ripper)
[16:24] Shadowcaller: (Well, either villager or neutral, what do you pick?)
[16:24] Wolfbane: (Neutral. It is more like her)
[16:24] Happy: (What kind of power are you giving her?)
[16:25] Shadowcaller: (She will have one night action ? items to give away.)
[16:25] Shadowcaller: *+
[16:25] Happy: (Seer spyglass? I hate seers though :P)
[16:26] Shadowcaller: (Only usable once.)
[16:26] Happy: "I - I not being wizard. How I talk to a god? I read of her." *roll on bluff*
[16:27] Shadowcaller: "You read of her? Where exactly?"
[16:27] Happy: "Miss Cessie's books."
[16:27] Murska: 'Yeah right.'
[16:28] Murska: Aegnor had seen her face when he mentioned it.
[16:28] Shadowcaller: "Really? I read those books too and they always wrote him as Helios, not Helia."
[16:28] Murska: 'Are you working for Helios?'
[16:29] Happy: Hope hears this, and her attention is instantly grabbed. She doesn't like Helios.
[16:30] Wolfbane: Promise tried to ignore the conversation, but seeing Hope, also has his curiosity peaked.
[16:31] Happy: Simone looks back and forth between Arik and Aegnor, and realizes that she's busted. Her shoulders sag. "Yes," she says in a small voice, biting her lip.
[16:32] Murska: 'Since when?'
[16:32] Shadowcaller: "So he send his spies after me did he? And as the elf says, for how long?"
[16:33] Happy: "I find Mr Arik's circle in Isandwana. I not know what it is, so I touch it, and I see her." Her look of shame appears genuine. As well it might, since she's genuinely ashamed of slipping up and letting the name out.
[16:35] Shadowcaller: "Foolish girl, you stepped into a summoning circle? Be glad that I not had summoned something more… unpleasant."
[16:35] Murska: 'Why exactly were you summoning Helios anyway?'
[16:35] Wolfbane: Promise chuckles at that last remark.
[16:35] Shadowcaller: "For information of course, why else?"
[16:35] Shadowcaller: "And why are we talking about me? This girl just admitted spying on us."
[16:36] Murska: Aegnor gets that 'duh' look on his face. 'Yeah. Anyway, what did he tell you to do?'
[16:36] Murska: (@ Simone)
[16:36] Shadowcaller: "And what did she offer you?"
[16:38] Happy: "If I steal Miss Cessie's orb, she show me knowledge in my mind." Still in the small, ashamed voice.
[16:40] Shadowcaller: "You little dirty thief, I should never have trusted you…"
[16:41] Happy: "But I help you! I give Mr Aegnor the spyglass and the flute!" /defensively
[16:42] Shadowcaller: "What did you give him exactly?" Arik looks at Aegnor
[16:42] Murska: 'Some artifacts she stole from the guild hall.'
[16:42] Murska: Aegnor retrieves them from his pockets.
[16:42] Shadowcaller: "And why exactly did you not tell me this before?"
[16:43] Wolfbane: "She has admitted to it though." He turns to Simone. "Now that you have been found out, are you still going to steal it?"
[16:43] Murska: 'Last night was rather busy, as you might have noticed.'
[16:44] Happy: "It easy for you not be thief. You being rich wizard. How else I going to eat?" /defensively
[16:44] Murska: 'And we haven't been giving you enough food?'
[16:44] Shadowcaller: Arik don't even look at her "You can deal with this one, I am far more intrested in these things then this little liar."
[16:45] Murska: 'Right.'
[16:45] Murska: 'She also has the knife.'
[16:45] Happy: "You feed me today. What about tomorrow when you finish with me and send me away?"
[16:45] Shadowcaller: "If you don't mind, I like to examine them, in my own room." He keeps ignoring Simone
[16:46] Murska: 'And why would we send you away, except, you know, if you betray us and try to steal our things?'
[16:46] Wolfbane: "Simone. I think we would keep you with us as long as you want to stay."
[16:46] Murska: (Hm. Didn't Simone have the knife-thingy aswell?)
[16:47] Murska: (On her, that is)
[16:47] Shadowcaller: (SHe did.)
[16:47] Murska: (Well, if nobody's going to react to me mentioning it…)
[16:47] Happy: "Because everyone does. Why would you keep me?" (Simone gave Aegnor the compass, flute, and spyglass, but kept the knife.)
[16:48] Murska: 'Why would we not?'
[16:48] Murska: 'And hand over that knife aswell, will you?'
[16:48] Shadowcaller: Arik: "You are going to keep her?"
[16:49] Murska: 'I don't know, anymore. But I would have.'
[16:49] Happy: She hands him the knife. "Because I too much trouble. Everyone say that."
[16:49] Murska: Aegnor hands it to Arik.
[16:50] Shadowcaller: Arik examines the knife a bit and then puts it down into his robe
[16:50] Murska: 'I imagine you'd be trouble if you keep stealing things from those who would take care of you.'
[16:51] Shadowcaller: Arik leaves, going into his own room, ignoring the argument
[16:51] Shadowcaller: (Brb, dinner.)
[16:51] Happy: (Has this awakened Cessie yet?)
[16:51] Happy: (Oh, guess not. Heavy sleeper, her. ^^)
[16:52] Wolfbane: "I imagine that if you asked, we would let you borrow things. At least, /I/ would as long as you gave it back."
[16:53] Wolfbane: "Not that I have many things anyways."
[16:55] Happy: "I take very good care of Miss Cessie's books that I borrow. I not steal anything from you except this." She takes out the jar of summoning powder. "Helia say take it to call her with after I steal orb." She's doing her very best frightened, remorseful, and vulnerable act right now.
[16:56] Happy: (Which is not entirely an act.)
[16:56] Murska: Aegnor takes the jar from her.
[16:57] Murska: 'Hmm. We'll have to decide what to do with her, I guess…'
[16:58] Murska: 'The other speaker said she'd be the next target if we didn't stop pursuing her, so I think if we throw her out, she'll be dead sooner than later.'
[16:58] Murska: (Gender pronoun confusion!)
[17:00] Wolfbane: "I don't think we should throw her out anyways. She has done more help than harm, if any harm at all."
[17:00] Happy: (The speaker mentioned Simone? Or he's trying to scare her? O.O)
[17:01] Wolfbane: (brb, breakfast)
[17:01] Murska: (Well, the speaker said 'the girl' but he's probably also trying to scare her. :P)
[17:02] Happy: "It will kill … me?" All trace of act is gone. Simone is terrified.
[17:04] Murska: 'I got a spirit on our side to protect us, but if you're not with the group…'
[17:05] Murska: 'I wouldn't wish that on you but if you make me doubt your trustworthiness one more time, I won't be able to risk keeping you with us.'
[17:07] Happy: "Yes, Sir. I understand." *very small voice*
[17:07] Shadowcaller: (Back.)
[17:08] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears to have awoken some time during your conversation
[17:09] Shadowcaller: "Sounds like things have happend.."
[17:10] Murska: 'Simone here appears to have been hired by Helios to steal Helena's orb.'
[17:11] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Simone doubtful about this "Is.. is this true?"
[17:11] Happy: "Yes, Miss Cessie."
[17:12] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears taken back with the straight answer, "But why? We took good care of you didn't we?"
[17:12] Shadowcaller: She looks at the others
[17:13] Happy: "She promise to show me the world."
[17:14] Shadowcaller: "I could have done that, why was a god intrested in the orb anyway?"
[17:15] Happy: "I not know. But she show me thing she say no one else know."
[17:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie shakes her head "You betrayed my trust Simone, but could I ever trust you again?"
[17:19] Happy: "When I make that deal, I not know you. It back in Isandwana."
[17:20] Shadowcaller: "You should have told us there and then Simone, that you were hired as some kind of spy.."
[17:20] Shadowcaller: "I can't belive this."
[17:20] Wolfbane: (back)
[17:20] Happy: She makes a low scoffing noise. "I not be good spy if I tell you."
[17:21] Murska: 'You would have made a good companion to travel with us, though.'
[17:22] Shadowcaller: "What will we do with her? Leave her right here?"
[17:23] Happy: "Is there nothing you want so much you do anything to have?" she asks in an impassioned tone, looking in Cessie's eyes. "I have nothing, and Helia offer me everything."
[17:24] Murska: 'If you have something like that, and someone controls you with it, we can never trust you.'
[17:24] Wolfbane: Promise offers a hand to Simone. "You have us." He looks around at everyone. "At least, I would like to think so."
[17:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie raises a eyebrown "I have limits Simone, I would betray those who belive in me for such things."
[17:25] Wolfbane: (Would? O.o)
[17:26] Shadowcaller: *would nopt
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Not
[17:26] Wolfbane: (Whew, okay)
[17:26] Murska: (heh)
[17:26] Shadowcaller: *god-damn typos
[17:26] Happy: "I not know you believe in me."
[17:26] Murska: (I imagine that'd have raised some eyebrows.)
[17:26] Happy: "I know Aegnor never did."
[17:27] Murska: 'Are you really claiming you didn't notice that they trusted you?'
[17:29] Happy: "There being different kinds of trust. Miss Cessie trust you utmostly. For me, she only not mistrust. Not same at all."
[17:30] Murska: 'Still, you betrayed that. And now we're going to have to keep you anyway, since we still care for you enough to not want you to die.'
[17:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Well, leaving her in some unknown city.."
[17:31] Murska: 'She'd be attacked by the spirits.'
[17:31] Shadowcaller: "WHy?"
[17:31] Murska: 'The speaker told me that if we try pursuing her again, she's the next target.'
[17:32] Shadowcaller: (also, she meant Cessie when she said that, not Simone, but you may have missunderstood, their fault thry didn't speccify.)
[17:32] Shadowcaller: *they
[17:32] Murska: (And he's trying to scare her anyway. He's not sure who she meant.)
[17:33] Happy: Simone is having a hard time wrapping her mind around two concepts. She understand why they are angry at her, but she doesn't understand why they think the act is wrong. Cessie seems to think that it would be wrong even if she hadn't been the target, and Simone doesn't understand that.
[17:33] Happy: The second is why they'd still want to protect her.
[17:34] Happy: "I cannot outrun spirits."
[17:34] Shadowcaller: "We should cast a geas upon her or something, if she like to stay with ut…"
[17:35] Happy: Hope: "A geas? No."
[17:35] Shadowcaller: "Why not? With the right terms…"
[17:35] Wolfbane: "No. Nothing against her will. It is cruel and you know it."
[17:35] Happy: Hope: "Cessie, you should know yourself how slippery Helios is. Can you really blame her?"
[17:36] Shadowcaller: "SHe agreed on it, and she wasn't desperate, I were."
[17:36] Happy: "I was!"
[17:37] Murska: 'She's staying, and I believe we can trust her at least until we're safe from the spirits, since she should know not to try anything.'
[17:37] Shadowcaller: "And a geas would not be cruel, it just make her keep a promise, thats all."
[17:38] Happy: Hope: "It removes her free will. How is that not cruel?"
[17:38] Wolfbane: "In my opinion, it is a /very/ cruel thing to limit a person's freedom."
[17:38] Happy: (heh)
[17:38] Wolfbane: (hehe)
[17:39] Shadowcaller: "We limit other peoples freedom all the time, thats how civilization works, it keeps people from doing exactly what they want."
[17:39] Shadowcaller: *whatever
[17:39] Murska: /So we'll have to resort to old-fashioned methods… namely, threatening her with severe consequences./ (Aegnor's thoughts.)
[17:42] Happy: (Would Simone have learned yet what a geas is?)
[17:42] Shadowcaller: (Not really.)
[17:43] Happy: "What is geas?" she asks. "Mr Aegnor is right, I not try steal from you again."
[17:43] Wolfbane: "Maybe, maybe not, but with magic? Forcefully compelling a person?"
[17:43] Wolfbane: (He is talking to Cessie)
[17:44] Shadowcaller: "It just takes away one option, *I* won't be able to trust her again without such measures."
[17:45] Happy: "We tell people how they should behave. We make sure they have good consequences for good behavior and bad consequences for bad behaviour. But it should always be that person's own choice what they do. Magical compulsion is evil."
[17:45] Shadowcaller: "And with the right terms, it would not be anything cruel with it."
[17:45] Happy: "Losing your trust is just such a consequence."
[17:46] Wolfbane: "I may have another way." He gets down onto one knee. "Simone, come here."
[17:46] Wolfbane: (He is kneeling so he is more her height)
[17:47] Happy: Simone approaches him.
[17:48] Wolfbane: "Okay. If you do this, I am giving you my complete trust. Do not betray it."
[17:48] Happy: "Why would you do that?"
[17:48] Shadowcaller: "SHe already have…"
[17:49] Wolfbane: (brb, someone at my door)
[17:49] Happy: brb food
[18:00] * Wolfbane has left the conversation.
[18:00] Shadowcaller: (<.<)
[18:01] Happy: (is back)
[18:01] Shadowcaller: (Wolfbane went somewhere.)
[18:01] *
moc.liamtoh|700enabflow#moc.liamtoh|700enabflow (Wolfbane) has joined the conversation.
[18:04] Happy: (hmm *wonders how to introduce Simone in Ripper*
[18:04] Shadowcaller: (Any ideas for her role?)
[18:04] Shadowcaller: (I have a few, but I still don't know if she is going to be neutral or villager.)
[18:06] Happy: (what are they?)
[18:06] Shadowcaller: (My ideas?)
[18:06] Happy: (yes)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: (Well, I had her as a observer, every night she can see if a person either uses a night action or is targeted by them.)
[18:07] Happy: (that's a good one)
[18:07] Happy: (sneaky sneaky)
[18:07] Wolfbane: (back)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: (WOlfy, check the upper section.)
[18:08] Murska: (I think it's a different chat for him)
[18:09] Shadowcaller: (Right…)
[18:09] Wolfbane: (hmm)
[18:09] Happy: [17:48] Wolfbane: "Okay. If you do this, I am giving you my complete trust. Do not betray it."
[17:48] Happy: "Why would you do that?"
[17:48] Shadowcaller: "SHe already have…"
[18:09] Wolfbane: (I dropped?)
[18:09] Shadowcaller: (apperently.)
[18:10] Wolfbane: (huh)
[18:12] Wolfbane: Promise looks her in the eyes. "I do not believe that you would want you harm us if given a choice. But, I want you to understand that if you do this, I will hold you to your word, if you break it, you will lose all respect from me. Understand?"
[18:12] Wolfbane: to harm*
[18:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie rolls her eyes (not seen by Promise thought.)
[18:14] Happy: Simone looks utterly confused. "You… respect me?"
[18:14] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "Of course. Not many could have gone through what you have."
[18:15] Happy: "I don't understand."
[18:16] Wolfbane: "Where many people would have given in, you fought back. You didn't give up. And that is why I respect you."
[18:17] Shadowcaller: *whisper* "Neither do I.." (understand that is.)
[18:19] Happy: "I just do what I have to do."
[18:20] Wolfbane: Promise ignores Cessie and nods. "Do you know what I am going to ask you to do?"
[18:20] Happy: She shakes her head no.
[18:20] Shadowcaller: (you could not have heard her <.<)
[18:21] Wolfbane: (He still has his hearing)
[18:21] Shadowcaller: (She said that to herlself.. oh okay then.)
[18:22] Wolfbane: "I want you to swear on your name that you will not harm us in any way. That includes stealing."
[18:23] Wolfbane: "Do not do so if you mean to break it."
[18:24] Happy: "But it's just a name… are you going to change my name too?" She doesn't look pleased at this idea.
[18:26] Wolfbane: "To my people, your name is one of the most sacred things you have. And I won't give you a name. Just swear on your own. Remember, I /will/ hold you to this."
[18:28] Happy: "And if I don't, you take my name away? Can you do that?" Confused Simone is confused. She has no concept of giving one's word.
[18:29] Wolfbane: "No, I won't take your name away. No one can. Swearing on your name just means that you give a promise and will do everything in your power to keep it."
[18:30] Happy: "I not steal from you because I not want to die. Promise is only words."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /This is going no where…/
[18:32] Wolfbane: "A promise is also an act of trust. Do you want us to trust you?"
[18:32] Happy: (Simone understands this about as well as Cessie understands Wolfen mating cermonies. :P)
[18:33] Shadowcaller: (To her honor and respect don't mean very much.)
[18:35] Happy: "I - I not think it possible you trust me."
[18:35] Wolfbane: "If you do this, then I will."
[18:36] Happy: Simone looks to Aegnor, clearly confused, and sort of hoping he'll translate this into terms she'll understand.
[18:37] Murska: 'He's giving you one more chance to earn his trust and respect.'
[18:37] Wolfbane: (brb, have to do laundry)
[18:37] Murska: (He doesn't really 'understand' those things either.)
[18:38] Murska: (Happy: No comment on the chat about our theory of your origins?)
[18:38] Shadowcaller: (Huh?)
[18:38] Shadowcaller: (What are you talking about? o.O)
[18:38] Happy: (any new theories other than the gb'd DC?)
[18:39] Happy: "But why would words do that?"
[18:39] Murska: (hmm)
[18:39] Murska: (You should read it. :P)
[18:39] Murska: (It's all logical!)
[18:39] Murska: (and makes sense, too)
[18:40] Happy: (it's moving faster than I can keep up with when I have a very confused kid to rp)
[18:40] Shadowcaller: ((Anyone mind enlighten me about this?))
[18:40] Murska: 'People believe in words.'
[18:40] Murska: (SC: I don't think you want to hear.)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: ((Well, you disscuss strange things, I rather keep it to different kinds of games.)
[18:41] Happy: (creep factor squared)
[18:42] Happy: "Why? I use words to fool people. Words are easy."
[18:42] Murska: 'And people are fooled by the words. Why? Because most people believe in them.'
[18:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, she have already shown that she can't be trusted, she already said so herself."
[18:43] Happy: "Tell me what geas does."
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "It comples you to keep a promise made by the cascter and on this case, you."
[18:44] Shadowcaller: *compels
[18:44] Happy: "How?"
[18:46] Shadowcaller: "Well, if you agree on the terms, it works much like a curse, but bound to a person, not a thing."
[18:47] Happy: "I die if I break it?"
[18:47] Wolfbane: (back)
[18:47] Shadowcaller: "No, of course not, I don't want to kill you."
[18:47] Shadowcaller: "It just prevents you to break it, you just can't think of breaking the promise."
[18:48] Happy: "And what being terms?"
[18:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, what terms do you want?"
[18:49] Happy: "You say you need geas, not me"
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "But.. you said we can't trust you."
[18:49] Happy: "How I know what terms you ask?"
[18:50] Shadowcaller: "If you tell me the terms you want, then we can be on equal grounds."
[18:50] Happy: "Aegnor, what she mean? That I not steal from her?"
[18:51] Murska: (Um. :P)
[18:52] Murska: 'I think she wants you to suggest the terms for the geas.'
[18:52] Happy: (It's kind of unfair to make her name her own shackles.)
[18:52] Murska: (Heh.)
[18:52] Happy: "So make geas say I not steal from you."
[18:53] Shadowcaller: "How do we know you are not going to steal from aomeone else? Or betray us in any other way?"
[18:54] Happy: (And it's actually a good sign that she didn't take Promise's offer. She can see it means a lot to him. She doesn't understand it enough to do it meaningfully, and isn't willing to hurt him by doing it without understanding it.)
[18:55] Happy: "Then I not steal from anyone in this room, or Mr Arik, and I not tell anyone your secrets, and I not hurt any of you."
[18:56] Shadowcaller: "Hm, do the rest of you think thats okay? With better formulation of course…"
[18:56] Wolfbane: "If she agrees to it."
[18:56] Happy: Hope: "I hate the whole idea. I'll have no part of it."
[18:56] Murska: Aegnor says nothing.
[18:56] Shadowcaller: "Its her terms after all…"
[18:57] Wolfbane: "I don't like the idea, but if she wants too, I can't stop her."
[18:57] Happy: "I won't try and stop it. But I won't help either."
[18:58] Shadowcaller: Ha- Hope, please understand, how else will we do it?"
[18:58] Wolfbane: Promise gets up and sits next to Hope.
[18:58] Happy: Hope: /I guess free will means she's free to do it if she insists. Why didn't she just do as Promise asked?/
[18:58] Happy: "I don't understand. But it's not my decision./
[18:58] Happy: *"
[19:00] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, what do you think?"
[19:01] Murska: 'I guess that works.'
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks troubled by the disagreement
[19:01] Shadowcaller: "So you would have nothing against it?"
[19:01] Murska: (Aegnor would rather find a way to make her do that out of her own will but knows that they wouldn't be able to trust her.)
[19:01] Murska: 'No, go ahead.'
[19:02] Wolfbane: "I have plenty against it, but it isn't my choice to make."
[19:02] Shadowcaller: "If you have something against it, I won't do it."
[19:03] Wolfbane: "It is not my choice."
[19:03] Wolfbane: "It is Simone's."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "Well, I don't want to do something you think is cruel to her."
[19:05] Happy: "Cessie, we can't always agree on everything. There's nothing you can say to make me approve of it, but if Simone chooses this of her own free will, it would be wrong of me to prevent her."
[19:05] Happy: Simone: "I do choose it."
[19:05] Murska: 'If we can't trust her without it, it would be more cruel to send her off to die than to use a geas.'
[19:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie sigh, "I tell Arik, I let it be his choice…"
[19:07] Shadowcaller: *I will let it be his choice
[19:08] Shadowcaller: SHe leaves the room
[19:08] Wolfbane: Promise sighs and puts an arm around Hope.
[19:09] Happy: Hope "I know Arik doesn't have any problem with a geas." *muttering*
[19:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie returns for a while, with her older brother behind her
[19:11] Shadowcaller: Arik: "It look like you have realized there is only one way to do this…"
[19:11] Happy: "Yes, Sir, Mr Arik."
[19:12] Shadowcaller: "Very well, what are your terms?"
[19:12] Wolfbane: Promuse grumbles under his breath. "There is always another way."
[19:12] Happy: "Not to hurt or steal from or tell secrets of anyone in this room."
[19:13] Murska: (The last bit is totally gonna come bite us in the arse later. :P)
[19:13] Murska: (Since she can't tell the secrets even to other members of the group)
[19:13] Shadowcaller: You don't even see that Arik cast any magic
[19:14] Shadowcaller: "Done and done, now can I return to my study?"
[19:15] Happy: (And what will it mean when Myubi is next in her head? Will it block off their secrets?)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (Her mind will be open to him, he will see the geas quite clearly.)
[19:17] Happy: (But will it break the geas for Myubi to see secrets?)
[19:17] Shadowcaller: (No, it will be like a cloud to him, the geas can't be broken, since she didn't actually do anything.)
[19:17] Happy: (okay)
[19:18] Happy: "Thank you," Simone says, and curtseys. "I am sorry I steal from you." She means the powder, which she'd give back now, except that Aegnor has it.
[19:19] Murska: Aegnor hands the powder to Arik.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: He takes it, "The geas will hold." Then he leaves.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I suddenly feel bad… but I guess this is the only way."
[19:22] Happy: "Is okay, Miss Cessie." Simone seems a lot more relaxed now that the situation is resolved and she isn't being asked to understand something completely foreign to her.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: "Are you sure you are okay? I feel like a monster…"
[19:23] Murska: Aegnor sighs and turns to look outside the window.
[19:23] Happy: "No, you very nice to me."
[19:24] Murska: (I guess Aegnor won't have to be wary about her pickpocketing prowess anymore.)
[19:24] Happy: (I guess she can still practice, as long as she doesn't take anything)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "As long as you are okay with it… we can remove it later."
[19:26] Murska: 'Now then.' Aegnor turns from the window. 'We have to decide how to proceed.'
[19:26] Happy: "The House of Masks."
[19:26] Happy: /Hope
[19:27] Murska: Aegnor nods. 'That seems to be the best option.'
[19:27] Wolfbane: Promise nods.
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "I have nothing against that."
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "I tell Arik that we are leaving then?"
[19:28] Murska: 'I'd like that spyglass back as soon as he can manage. It'd be useful.'
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "I ask him for it."
[19:29] Shadowcaller: She leaves the room
[19:29] Shadowcaller: ANd soon returns with the spyglass
[19:30] Shadowcaller: "He examined that first, he knows how it works."
[19:30] Shadowcaller: "Apperently, it starts shaking if there is anything hostile nearby."
[19:31] Happy: "Oooh. That what it do when I see the Akki."
[19:31] Murska: 'Good to know.'
[19:31] Happy: (Cessie still hasn't fretted over the items being stolen at all?)
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (They are magic, and they are in extreme danger from the spirits.)
[19:32] Shadowcaller: (For now, she let it pass.)
[19:33] Happy: (Heh… nice to know she isn't incorruptible xD)
[19:33] Shadowcaller: (<.<)
[19:33] Shadowcaller: (Corrutpable is such a bad word.)
[19:33] Happy: (Stealing is wrong! Unless it's something really nifty and magical…)
[19:34] Shadowcaller: (And if one of your best friends just died by something that one of the artifacts can protect them from.)
[19:34] Shadowcaller: (V
[19:34] Happy: (True…)
[19:34] Happy: (Still, you'd think it would make her a little less judgemental of Simone)
[19:35] Shadowcaller: (Well, she maintains a balance.)
[19:35] Shadowcaller: (She felt bad for the geas didn't she?)
[19:35] Happy: (true)
[19:36] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, off we go then?)
[19:36] Happy: (but no one has ever tried to teach Simone morals of any kind. For her, it's all about survival.)
[19:36] Shadowcaller: (I better do that some time <.<)
[19:37] Murska: (Aegnor isn't the best person to teach anyone about morals, even though he'd like to.)
[19:37] Murska: (They're not something he understands.)
[19:37] Murska: (as such)
[19:37] Wolfbane: (Promise could /possibly/ do so)
[19:38] Shadowcaller: "So, are we going then?"
[19:38] Happy: Hope: "Yes, let's go."
[19:38] Happy: Simone nods.
[19:39] Wolfbane: "Yes, we should."
[19:40] Murska: Aegnor gathers anything he isn't carrying on himself.
