Kyou 41

[22:20] Shadowcaller: Arik: "You came…"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Can't we just skip traning tonight? You know what I think of it."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: Arik: "You liked it when you were younger, then necromancy wasn't such a big problem for you. Remember how you spoke to the death at whitestone… you liked that."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Its not the same thing anymore… its not speaking to the dead, its controlling them."
[22:23] Shadowcaller: Arik: "You need to learn, you need to be able to protect yourself when I'm not there."
[22:24] Shadowcaller: *dead
[22:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "If you insist… what are we doing tonight? More rituals? More life manupulation?"
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Arik: "No, we are going to raise the dead tonight."
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Tonight? You really got permission?"
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I get permission from Gilraen, its all set."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: Arik: "You need to train Cessie. You need more practice, all that traning will be useless if you can't accept necromancy for what it is. Those bodies are in no way connected to the persons they were, they are just flesh and bones. Its nothing left of them."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I don't know Arik, I can't see myself… doing that."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Don't be silly, you can't let those culturally biased opinions control you Cessie. You are better then that."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: Cessie shakes her head, "I don't know Arik, talking to the dead is one thing, raising bodies is another. I don't want to step over my bounderies."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Bounderies? Cessie, you are a wizard, but you think as one without the gift. We should not let moral limit ourself, we are above that. The people that belive in those things do not understand magic, they don't understand us."
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "We aren't above moral, no one is. Magic is something very special, but it should be handeled with care, with caution. I love magic as much as you do, but it don't put us above anyone else… or at least we should try to not feel as it is."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Cessie, you need to stop this. You will never become a great wizard if you limit yourself. You wanted to live forever right? Well, no methods aren't going to require that you sacrifice something first. Like I did. All good, powerful wizards have sacrificed something."
[23:06] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "In that case I will find my own way. Without sacrificing my ideals…"

[22:20] Happy: So… Aegnor and the scouting groups?
[22:21] Murska: Hm. Well, they already have their orders so it's not like he has much to say to them but 'farewell'
[22:21] Happy: Hope hugs him tightly.
[22:23] Murska: Aegnor hugs her back. 'Be careful out there.'
[22:23] Happy: "I will. You be careful here."
[22:25] Murska: 'The village shall be standing when you return.'
[22:25] Happy: "And you and Cessie and Simone better be too."
[22:25] Happy: No mention of Arik. :P
[22:26] Murska: 'Depending on the time of day.' *smile*
[22:32] Happy: She hugs him again, with a kiss on the cheek. "Love you, Aegnor."
[22:33] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'I guess you had better get going soon.'
[22:34] Happy: "Just need to say goodbye to Cessie, and then I will."

[23:14] Happy: Hope smiles at Aegnor. "Come with me to find Cessie and say goodbye?"
[23:15] Murska: 'Of course.'

[23:15] Happy: A knock on the door.
[23:15] Shadowcaller: Arik: "…You don't see it don't you? You need to adapt to survive, I love you over all else but you can't live your life like this. You need to-
[23:16] Shadowcaller: Cessie opens the door "Hello?"
[23:16] Happy: Hope and Aegnor stand there.
[23:16] Murska: 'Hi. Just thought we'd stop by before Hope leaves.'
[23:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Come in." She looks at Arik but you can't see her expression "We wern't doing anything important."
[23:18] Shadowcaller: *weren't
[23:19] Happy: "I couldn't leave without saying goodbye."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: Arik have backed away into a corner of the room and don't say anything
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I didn't realize you were going so soon…"
[23:22] Shadowcaller: She moves away from the doorway "Thank Artari that you came…"
[23:23] Happy: "Walk with me to the edge of the village where the other scouts are waiting?" Hope says, not wanting to say anything meaningful in Arik's presence.
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I follow you there."
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Arik, are you coming?"
[23:26] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I doubt they want me there… go ahead."
[23:26] Shadowcaller: *without me
[23:29] Happy: Hope leaves the hut with Cessie and Aegnor. Once they are out of Arik's hearing, Hope says in a low voice, "Did something happen?"
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "We had a bit of a argument…" Cessie more troubled then when you first saw her.
[23:35] Happy: *pokes Murska*
[23:36] Murska: 'What about? Necromancy?'
[23:38] Murska: (Haven't eaten in a while, I think I oughta)
[23:39] Happy: (oh noes! dad is starving!)
[23:39] Shadowcaller: She bits her lip "Yes, we don't really agree on that…"
[23:40] Happy: Hope is also uncomfortable. She believes it's wrong to raise undead, but she also wants Promise back badly enough not to object to it.
[23:42] Murska: Aegnor is uncomfortable because the others are and because he really wants to just tell Cessie to not do anything she doesn't want to, but that'd be wrong towards Hope.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie quickly changes the subject "You are going with Michicora right Hope?"
[23:44] Happy: "Yes. The two of us will stay together."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Good, you are strong as a team. You served the same god and all… you will be fine."
[23:48] Happy: "And you had better be fine too, Cessie."
[23:48] Happy: "YOu and Aegnor both."
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "We are in no danger at all Hope, this place is perfectly safe."
[23:49] Murska: 'Famous last words.'
[23:49] Happy: Hope meets Aegnor's eyes briefly with a half smile, but doesn't contradict Cessie.
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "I doubt the world have a sense of irony Aegnor."
[23:51] Murska: 'Well, then I'll have to compensate for it's lacks, eh?'
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Well, I certienly hope you don't make those my last words Aegnor." She smiles briefly
[23:52] Shadowcaller: *certainly
[23:53] Murska: Aegnor's smile keeps on his face, with no visible change to anyone. 'Of course not.'
[23:54] Happy: They reach the edge of the village, where the teams are preparing to leave.
[23:54] Happy: Hope hugs Cessie tightly, but not painfully.
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (hurray!)
[23:55] Happy: (world doom averted!)
[23:55] Happy: "Please be safe, Cessie," she whispers.
[23:56] Shadowcaller: ((Link:
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Hope, you don't even have to say that. I can take care of myself as you do."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: She hugs back as hard as she can
[23:58] Shadowcaller: (which is not very much,)
[23:58] Happy: "I know… but if anything happened to you… You mean so much to me."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "I'm not in anymore danger then normally. Please don't worry about me Hope. I will be here when you come back as surely as the sun sets."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: (Hm, how much taller is Hope against Cessie?)
[00:03] Happy: (not much. Hope has to look up to Aegnor)
[00:03] Shadowcaller: (She has? Okay…)
[00:04] Murska: (Cessie will be alive. Aegnor promised the village would be standing. :P)
[00:04] Happy: Hope pulls Aegnor into the hug as well.
[00:05] Shadowcaller: (Great, a group hug…)
[00:05] Happy: (Well I think Hope knows that if Cessie dies, Aegnor would not survive her long)
[00:05] Murska: After a moment, Aegnor retreats from it. 'You should get going now.'
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Yes… maybe you should."
[00:06] Happy: Hope nods.
[00:06] Happy: She pulls on her pack, and heads out.
[00:07] Happy: Turning back to look one last time before disappearing into the woods with the other scouts.
[00:07] Happy: (She said goodbye to Simone already)
[00:08] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks after her, even as she can't see her anymore she looks out into the woods
[00:09] Murska: Aegnor looks after her until he can't see her anymore, then sighs and turns back towards the village.
[00:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie stays a little longer but soon follows Aegnor
[00:10] Murska: (Anything else much to RP before evening in the village?)
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (If you want…)
[00:16] Murska: (I'm not a leader in real life, I have no idea what exactly Aegnor will be doing, other than familiarizing himself as much as he can with their situation and the abilities of everyone under his command and organizing things. He'll probably have the idea of moving a warcamp closer to Kyou, for the added safety of the village along with the mobility advantage gained.)
[00:16] Happy: (organizing watches, weapons training, inventory of supplies)
[00:17] Murska: (Mostly delegating those jobs to people suited to them and then training those people in doing that job.)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie reads some books, she don't like to talk with Arik right now
[00:18] Murska: Aegnor presents the warcamp idea to Gilraen.
[00:18] Shadowcaller: (Arik is raising the corpses…)
[00:18] Happy: And Arik does what he needs to do to prepare for making undead.
[00:18] Murska: How many of the villagers are willing to fight?
[00:18] Happy: What does he want to do? Only move the warriors and leave the civilians behind?
[00:19] Murska: Move most of the war-related stuff, pretty much. They'd be supplied by hunting and from the village, but the soldiers would be in the camp for faster reaction times.
[00:23] Happy: Gilraen: "That sounds like a good idea. I'll start organizing for it."
[00:24] Happy: (are you two still in the chat with lex and loony and Rein?)
[00:24] Murska: (I'm not)
[00:25] Murska: 'Good.'
[00:28] Happy: After a little while, when Aegnor is not occupied…
[00:29] Happy: ""So, I think we should talk." It's Xavius, who appears near him.
[00:29] Murska: 'I guess.'
[00:30] Happy: "I want a better deal than what you offer before."
[00:31] Murska: 'What can you offer me that would make it worthwhile? Your choices are pretty much 'take my deal', 'attempt to fight the whole village' or 'go out into the world alone, probably to die'.'
[00:39] Happy: "I want to be allowed to stay in the village. Not outside the village."
[00:40] Murska: 'Again, why would I listen to what you want?'
[00:44] Happy: "You hurt me. If not for me, you'd still be trapped in the spirit realm."
[00:45] Murska: 'Likewise.'
