Kyou 42

[19:07] Murska: [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.'
[19:09] Murska: *poke*
[19:11] Murska: *pokes SC*
[19:11] Murska: >.>
[19:14] Shadowcaller: *poke*
[19:17] Shadowcaller: "Yes, we helped each other right? Like we are supposed to do know."
[19:18] Murska: 'I'm helping you. Giving you a choice which will result in staying alive. I've got no obligation to do anything for you anymore.'
[19:19] Shadowcaller: "So you would just kill me if I had not helped you?"
[19:21] Murska: 'No, I'd just banish you.'
[19:22] Shadowcaller: "I consider that unfair in the extreme, you don't like me very much do you?"
[19:23] Murska: 'I don't like most people very much. Life is unfair, deal with it.'
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "Deal with it? Okay, if I can help you in other ways, would you consider to let me stay then?"
[19:24] Murska: 'What can you offer?'
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "What do you need?"
[19:25] Murska: 'To win a war.'
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "Well yeah, I thought you figured I needed something more specific to work on."
[19:26] Murska: 'Until you pitch in with suggestions of your capabilities, I'll just assume you can't do anything.'
[19:27] Shadowcaller: "Well, lets see here, illussions, invisibility, charm… and my potions of course."
[19:27] Shadowcaller: *ilussions
[19:27] Murska: 'We already have the first three. What kind of potions?'
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "You got charm?"
[19:28] Murska: Aegnor smirks.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "That dosen't answer my question you know…"
[19:29] Murska: 'Yes.'
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "Really? Who got it?"
[19:29] Murska: 'Not telling. So, potions?'
[19:30] Shadowcaller: "Yes… potions, most of them are for sexual means however. If you are intrested…"
[19:31] Murska: 'For the war effort? No thanks.'
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "No, but later of course…"
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "Or right now? Who knows?"
[19:32] Murska: 'So, that's it?'
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "No, of course not. I make other potions too of course."
[19:33] Shadowcaller: "Haste for example, its very useful when running from nymphs…"
[19:34] Murska: 'How many do you have or could get ready in, say, ten days? And would you require materials unavailable for us?'
[19:35] Shadowcaller: "Well.. I'm not exactly sure what grows in this forest yet. I have a few bottles ready right now thought."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: "Let me have a look around later and I can tell you if I find the needed materials."
[19:37] Murska: 'Any other kinds of useful potions?'
[19:37] Shadowcaller: "Poison.. if that would be needed."
[19:38] Murska: 'Hmm. What kind, exactly?'
[19:38] Shadowcaller: "Its really a failed love potion, makes em blind at the spot then it slowly kills them…"
[19:39] Murska: 'How potent is it? Could it be used to, say, poison wells?'
[19:39] Shadowcaller: "Never tried really, so I can't know."
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "I think it works quite well on mortals however."
[19:40] Murska: 'How would you know?'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "I survived it."
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Mortals tend to be less resistant however,"
[19:41] Murska: 'Depending on if it affects mortals at all.'
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "You could have someone try a weakened version of it?"
[19:42] Murska: 'Rather not. Too risky.'
[19:42] Shadowcaller: "Animals?"
[19:43] Murska: 'Perhaps, but in any case, we don't have time to determine it's effects and weaknesses exactly. But if we have a rough estimation on it's strength, it might be useful.'
[19:43] Murska: 'So, some potions of haste and an uncertain poison.'
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "Err… I can make other types if needed."
[19:44] Murska: 'Please don't make me dig out each and every one out of you one by one.'
[19:45] Shadowcaller: "Just say a effect you need and I try to make it?"
[19:46] Murska: 'Any kind that boosts people's fighting abilities and especially survivability, mass-producable floating, flying, invisibility, anything usable as a weapon, and especially magic resistance.'
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "Magic resistance… oh, Myrtle dose that. But you need to eat a lot of it for it to have any effect at all."
[19:48] Murska: (haven't slept since I woke up for yesterday's IF… :P)
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (o.O)
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (Why?)
[19:49] Murska: (Never had the time)
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (What were you doing?)
[19:49] Murska: (horrible frustrating work)
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (Ah.)
[19:53] Murska: 'Is it practical, then?'
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "Not in the spirit world, but you mortals might have use for it."
[19:55] Shadowcaller: "I don't know any other plants that have the same effect."
[19:55] Murska: 'If it requires a large amount to have any effect, is it worthwhile? Is the effect strong enough to be of any use whatsoever?'
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "Really, I don't know the exact use for you mortals but I have a lot of the plant itself. Its quite common where i live."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "You should ask some mortal about it."
[19:58] Murska: Aegnor smirks again before turning serious. 'Any of the other effects?'
[19:59] Shadowcaller: "Not on spirits at least, in fact, it don't have much effect on my kind at all."
[20:00] Murska: 'No, can you produce any of the other effects I listed?'
[20:01] Shadowcaller: "Um, I guess I could make potions that make people stronger."
[20:01] Murska: 'Not that useful, really.'
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "Its the easiest effect to produce The other effects… not so much."
[20:03] Murska: 'Strength isn't that useful in our kind of a war. It might be of marginal benefit but all in all, if we are in a fight which we won't win quickly, effectively and with the least possible amount of casualties, we're doing something wrong.'
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "Hey, you just had to say it wasn't that useful."
[20:05] Shadowcaller: Xavius shrugs "I don't know anything about what you do."
[20:06] Murska: 'If the poison proves useful, we might be able to negotiate a bit on the deal. But only if. You do the testing, and bring me the results along with any potions of haste you can. Until then, the conditions of the previous deal stand.'
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Xavius smiles "Of course, I got premisson to test it on animals right?"
[20:08] Murska: 'On nothing that would be eaten, though.'
[20:09] Shadowcaller: Xavius make some type of gesture with his hand "Of course not, I know the deal."
[20:10] Murska: 'Right. Well, unless there's something else, I have work to do.'
[20:10] Shadowcaller: "Are you sure you don't want the other potions later thought?"
[20:10] Murska: 'No.' Aegnor states over his shoulder as he turns and walks away.
[20:10] Shadowcaller: "Oh well…"
[20:14] Murska: *end conversation* what next?
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (Happy makes up that.)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (Or you could ask someone what Myrtle dose.)
[20:15] Murska: (Would we really need to RP that aswell?)
[20:15] Murska: (He'd just mention it to Gilraen at some point)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (Sure.)
[20:19] Murska: (And learn what exactly?)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: (You'll see when you ask her I guess?)
[20:20] Murska: (So we are going to RP it?)
[20:20] Shadowcaller: (Err… I guess Happy can tell you then.)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (She is the GM after all.)
[20:21] Happy: (I can't GM and map)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (We are aware.)
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (So we wait?)
[20:21] Murska: (Well let's skip to the end of this day?)
[20:22] Shadowcaller: (If you like yes.)
[20:22] Murska: It's about an hour to midnight as Aegnor finally walks inside his hut. The moment the 'door' is closed, his posture slumps.
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (Sec.)
[20:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie is laying in the bed, having fallen asleep with a book in her hands
[20:27] Shadowcaller: Her mouth is wide open and she snores a bit
[20:29] Murska: Aegnor manages a tired smile at the scene. He tries to carefully take the book from her.
[20:36] Shadowcaller: As Aegnor takes the book from Cessies hands, her peaceful snoring is suddenly interrupted. "Zzz- ugh…." She blinks a few times and closes her mouth "Aegnor? Whats the time?…"
[20:37] Murska: 'Sorry, didn't mean to wake you.'
[20:40] Shadowcaller: She sits up on the bed making a loud yawm "I waited for you." She says sleepily scratching the back of her head.
[20:41] Murska: 'You shouldn't, you need the rest more than I do.' Based on how Aegnor looks, this is a blatant lie.
[20:46] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks doubtfullt at Aegnor, its hard to see her face beacuse in the dark but it looks like she frowns "You should really get some sleep Aegnor."
[20:48] Murska: 'I guess… for tomorrow.' Aegnor sounds a bit subdued.
[20:48] Shadowcaller: *doubtful
[20:54] Shadowcaller: She sigh "Just lay down here with me, you can't be effective if you don't sleep enough."
[20:56] Murska: Aegnor sits down next to Cessie. For a moment he looks like he wants to say something, but then he forces it off his face.'
[21:03] Shadowcaller: She watches Aegnor silently for a while, her exact expression impossible to see in the dark. "So… how was it?"
[21:04] Murska: 'Mmh?' Aegnor blinks.
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "Well… to lead."
[21:09] Murska: Aegnor stays silent for a moment. 'I…' It seems as though he's about to say something completely different, but changes it at the last moment. 'I'll manage, as usual.'
[21:10] Happy: (( *hugs Aegnor* :( ))
[21:12] Shadowcaller: /back.)
[21:13] Murska: (Planescape - Torment gives you such a badass main character)
[21:13] Shadowcaller: (Really?)
[21:13] Murska: (I mean… In my backpack there are, at the moment, a 'Severed Arm(yours)', 'Your left eye' and 'Intestines(Yours)
[21:14] Murska: (I've also killed myself just to prove a point in a debate. :P)
[21:15] Murska: (epicness: I find an insane zombie who's been a doctor of sorts while she was alive. She's cutting up bodies. What do I do? 'Could you rip open my stomach and check my intestines for any items that might've gotten lodged in there?')
[21:17] Shadowcaller: She moves a bit closer to Aegnor, trying to get a closer look on his face "You don't need to do this Aegnor, other people could could lead."
[21:21] Murska: 'Nobody else has the required experience.' Aegnor turns his head away and adds quietly. 'I'm not sure I do…'
[21:30] Murska: *poke*
[21:31] Shadowcaller: Aegnor can feel Cessies palms on his shoulders, massaging his back a bit "You know, there is a spell for this…"
[21:34] Murska: 'I don't know… it wouldn't be the same.' Aegnor tries to go with the subject change. He can't show weakness or his orders will be doubted at the crucial moment. A leader must always appear confident and calm.
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (sorry for going on and off like this:S)
[21:40] Shadowcaller: She rubs Aegnors back while talking "Everyone think magic is so artifictial, like its just a tool or something."
[21:42] Murska: 'They think the same of music. Maybe it's the same with any craft or skill you learn intimately enough…'
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "They think music is artifictial?" She sounds suprised
[21:43] Murska: 'They think it's just sounds, something that you practice and then replicate.'
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "What is it then? I know that magic is unique from person to person, is music the same?" She have moved further down his back now
[21:47] Murska: 'I don't know… I can't know what it is like to other people. But it speaks to me… I don't create it, I just let it out as it is.'
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "Your just the medium then?"
[21:51] Murska: 'Logically thinking, I do not know where it stems. But I don't consciously create it, I just shape it into something that can be sensed by others.'
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "Sounds a bit like magic, maybe they are related somehow?"
[21:54] Shadowcaller: She rubs a bit harder
[21:56] Murska: She can feel Aegnor slowly relaxing somewhat. 'Mm. I don't know… It's possible, I guess.'
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "Feeling relaxed yet?" She continues at the same speed
[21:58] Murska: 'Aah. It certainly feels nice.'
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "Think you can sleep now?"
[22:02] Murska: 'Yeah. I can't neglect myself or I'll break down, right?'
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "Just relax, don't think of anything…" She moves her palms up his back again
[22:06] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'Don't ask the impossible.'
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (Well, she can't see him smiling anyway…) "Is there nothing I can do to calm down that head of yours?"
[22:07] Murska: 'Well, I can attempt to stop thinking of anything else, but I could never stop thinking of you.'
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I doubt you think of me all the time Aegnor, you must be able to concentrate on other things in life."
[22:11] Murska: Aegnor twists his upper body around to look at Cessie, smiling. 'Don't be so practical. Of course I think of you.'
[22:17] Shadowcaller: She kisses him ligthly on the lips "Of course you do, but not all the time right?"
[22:18] Murska: 'Sadly, sometimes I do have to concentrate too much to keep a part of my mind just for you. But those times are, luckily, rare.'
[22:22] Shadowcaller: She smiles playfully "You are such a charmer."
[22:25] Murska: Aegnor remembers the conversation with Xavius and grins. 'Talents enough for an one-man troupe?'
[22:27] Shadowcaller: She leans her head a bit questionly, still smiling "What do you mean?"
[22:28] Murska: 'Just a fair warning. Careful with the high praise, or it might go to my head.' Aegnor winks.
[22:32] Murska: *poke*
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (Sorry.)
[22:34] Shadowcaller: She giggles "You have enough confidence for two people Aegnor." But then adds, "But aren't you tired?"
[22:38] Murska: 'Even after the gentle touch of your reinvigorating hands… yeah, I'm pretty drained.' Aegnor turns more towards her. 'Maybe tomorrow will be an easier day.'
[22:41] Murska: (If only she knew how wrong she was on that confidence comment. :P)
[22:42] Shadowcaller: She yaws again "I wouldn't know…" She leans toward Aegnor, "What did you mean by "one-man troupe" anyway?"
[22:42] Shadowcaller: (Eh, he covers it very well.)
[22:44] Murska: 'Well, I haven't seen any of them lately, but at one point it was not that rare to see a travelling troupe of entertainers going from city to city. I even journeyed with them every once in a while. Picked up some interesting tricks.'
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "Like?"
[22:46] Murska: 'Well, I'd suggest not playing cards with me.' *smile*
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "I know real magic thought Aegnor." She dons her smile again, "I doubt you could beat me if I really wanted to win."
[22:48] Murska: 'Using magic is cheating and gets you thrown out of the table, at the very least.'
[22:49] Shadowcaller: "I can hide it, card games very strictly forbidden at the university, but I played once or twice… outside the halls that is."
[22:50] Murska: 'Heh. Most serious dealers have some sort of trinkets to detect it. And besides, my tricks are all legit.'
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "Hm, well I wouldn't know, I never played it with real bets… and shouldn't you be asleep by now?"
[22:55] Murska: 'I don't think it's even midnight yet. And the company is great.'
[22:57] Shadowcaller: She stretches a bit "How would you know? I can hardly see a darn thing in here."
[22:58] Murska: 'I can hardly see anything but you. And that's more than enough.'
[23:02] Shadowcaller: She giggles and begins to stroke Aegnors chest with her slender arms "Its hard to get embarassed with you at least."
[23:05] Murska: 'And absolutely no need to.' Aegnor barely stops a yawn. 'I guess I really should sleep, though.'
[23:08] Shadowcaller: She stops, holding her hands back a bit "Yeah, we need to sleep…"
[23:09] Murska: Aegnor wraps his arms around Cessie and hugs her gently. 'Good night.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "Good Night Aegnor… and make me a favor of not wake up too early will you?"
[23:11] Murska: 'I'll try. What about a good night kiss?'
[23:13] Shadowcaller: "Like the one you gave me last time?" She grins
[23:14] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'We're supposed to sleep…'
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "Hey, you were to one suggesting it."
[23:16] Murska: Aegnor kisses her gently. 'Maybe we should wake up early after all?'
[23:18] Shadowcaller: She sigh "No, you need to sleep a lot more if you are going to work yourself out like that."
[23:19] Murska: Aegnor gently lays down on the bed, arms still around Cessie.
[23:20] Shadowcaller: They fall asleep fast
[23:21] Murska: Aegnor, after thinking Cessie already fell asleep(your call if she did), quietly whispers 'Thank you.' before drifting asleep himself.
[23:21] Shadowcaller: (thank you?)
[23:22] Murska: (yup)
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (He thanked her?)
[23:23] Murska: (it appears so)
[23:24] Shadowcaller: ¨(I see, do Happy want to say something in this chat?:P)
[23:25] Happy: Suddenly Xavius appears in the hut.
[23:25] Happy: nah
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[23:25] Murska: That'd be the end of THAT deal. :P
[23:25] Murska: night
