Kyou 59

[21:40] Happy: So… IF?
[21:41] Murska: Sure?
[21:41] Shadowcaller: Sure
[21:42] Shadowcaller: So, you are still where you left off, in Negas realm, near Negas servant
[21:43] Shadowcaller: Alegias is somewhere, killing the weakened gods
[21:43] Shadowcaller: For some reason
[21:43] Murska: I think I was waiting for everyone to finish their conversations
[21:43] Happy: "Zubera…" Hope says. "She's the one most at risk."
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "Um so.. how do we jump? How did Alegias do it?"
[21:45] Shadowcaller: (Cessie.)
[21:45] Murska: ( brb)
[21:45] Shadowcaller: Servant: "He was holing some type of golden rod, I think he used that… but I'm not sure, it all happend so fast."
[21:46] Happy: Simone to the servant. "Anything you can tell us about this place will help."
[21:46] Happy: Hope: /Zubera, can you hear me?/
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure what to tell you… this is a place devouted to desire, I'm not sure what the other realms are thought, not more then you can guess."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: /Hope? Is that really you? WHere is Promise? Is he near you?"
[21:49] Happy: /He's been trapped in the spirit realms ever since the gate closed./
[21:50] Shadowcaller: /But… they never came out?/
[21:51] Shadowcaller: /I told- I told them not to enter…"
[21:51] Happy: /Aegnor and the Yokai wolf returned. But not Promise. Is he…. he's still alive, isn't he?/
[21:52] Shadowcaller: /I don't know. I thought he was with you… I haven't looked… I been so weak…/
[21:53] Happy: /Do you have protectors with you? Zubera, someone is killing gods./
[21:53] Happy: "We have to go to Zubera. Helena can hide in the orb, and the other gods we know are strong enough to protect themselves."
[21:54] Shadowcaller: /What? Thats- how? What is going on there?/
[21:55] Shadowcaller: /I need to look for Promise…/
[21:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I guess… yes, that sounds like a good plan."
[21:57] Murska: 'Okay.'
[21:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /Helena?/
[21:58] Murska: Naib is silent and looks around, interested.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: (Well, what do you know, internet have returned back home…)
[22:00] Shadowcaller: Servant: "Is there anything more I can do to aid you?"
[22:02] Happy: "Warn the other gods. And if you hear anything of my mate, Promise… "
[22:02] Shadowcaller: "Of course, I will tell Nega right away…"
[22:04] Happy: "Aegnor? Do you have any ideas?"
[22:05] Murska: 'Well, of course any forces that can help us against the enemy would be good…'
[22:07] Shadowcaller: Servant: "All our forces are weakened right now and thrown into chaos, we can't jump between the realms like you do I'm afraid."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "…you are on your own."
[22:10] Murska: 'Should've guessed.'
[22:11] Happy: "Do you know any ways to stop witchars?"
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Servant: "I'm afraid I'm not that familiar with them actually…"
[22:12] Happy: Hope pauses a moment. "Is Ai here?"
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "Ai?" The servant first looks like he have no idea what your talking aobutbut then seem to remember something "I'm.. I'm so sorry to tell you this, but I'm afraid in a moment like this, I need to tell you this flat out, Ai is dead."
[22:15] Shadowcaller: "His soul returned to my mistress many days ago."
[22:15] Happy: "I know. I just didn't know… if this is where it would have come."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "I really would like you to talk with his soul again, but I think there are more pressing matters at the moment…"
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "For every moment you stay here, a actual god might die."
[22:17] Murska: 'Let's get going then… Zubera?'
[22:17] Happy: "Surely we aren't the only ones who can stop him!"
[22:17] Happy: "Please tell me the gods are better protected than that."
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, I'm just a simpel servant."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "But I don't really want to find out…"
[22:19] Happy: "I guess we should hold hands then, and think of Zubera. Naib, do you know who that is?"
[22:20] Murska: 'Heard of her. Some kind of a masked goddess?'
[22:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Well, most of her knew her as the facestealer…"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: *most people knew her as the facestealer
[22:22] Murska: 'That's the same thing? I always thought Zubera was some kind of a goddess of arts or something…'
[22:22] Murska: 'Facestealer…' He shudders slightly. 'Why are we going to go to her?'
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Its complicated…"
[22:23] Happy: "To protect her," Hope says fiercely. "You don't have to come."
[22:25] Murska: He raises his hands, palms outwards. 'What would I do alone here? I'd stick with you, but I don't really feel like experiencing my face sucked out so if that's avoidable…'
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "DOn't worry, she won't do that, noot anymore…"
[22:25] Shadowcaller: *not
[22:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes Aegnors and Hopes hands
[22:26] Happy: "You could probably jump back to the mortal realm if you tried," Hope says.
[22:26] Happy: Simone takes Aegnor's hand and reaches out for Naib's.
[22:26] Murska: He takes it hesitantly. 'Well, if you say so… It's not like I didn't follow you to a war already.'
[22:28] Happy: Hope takes Naib's hand, completing the circle.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Lets see if-" You stand in the middle of a great building, at the walls there are countless of paintings and the celling far above you is painted with fantastic patterns of every color
[22:30] Shadowcaller: There is a great marble bust in the middle of the hall, it looks like… Promise?

[22:32] Shadowcaller: The hall is otherwise empty of life however
[22:32] Happy: "Zubera?"
[22:34] Shadowcaller: There is no reply, instead Zubera appears before, she have two brushes behind her right ear and is dressed in a colorful robe that you suspect once have been white.
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "I don't know who I should thank for your return but… its SO good to see you all again."
[22:37] Murska: Naib looks around, then as Zubera appears his eyes focus on her. He looks somewhat surprised.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: Zubera shifts her eyes to Naib and widens a bit "But you are new to me.. who are you friend?" She smiles friendly
[22:39] Murska: 'Uh… Naib. Glad to meet you.' He bows.
[22:39] Happy: "When we opened the gate, someone leapt through and is killing gods. We need to find a way to stop him."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: She bows in a similar manner but instantly looks more worried when she hears (Simone? Hope?) mnetione that.
[22:41] Shadowcaller: *mentione
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Killing gods? Thats… who is it? DO you know anything about this killer? I would not even belive you if I hadn't felt two gods die for a few moments ago…"
[22:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Well I- not really. Except that he is very deadly and most likely insane, he is a witchar."
[22:44] Happy: "I don't know if I could stop him. He moved so fast."
[22:44] Happy: "And I was watching him, prepared for him to act. Or so I thought."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "And.. you think he is coming for me?" She looks at Hope curiously
[22:47] Happy: "We don't know where he's going. But I had to make sure you were safe. For Promise's sake."
[22:48] Shadowcaller: "I'm honored… I guess, the possibility of dying have not actually hit me thought. Its strange…"
[22:49] Happy: "Helios thinks the killer will keep growing stronger until he is strong enough to challenge Artaris."
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Helios? You know Helios?"
[22:51] Murska: 'We've met him.'
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "I don't consider you lucky, from what I have heard, its current incarnation is a really awful person."
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "I like Helia much better… we knew each other before… well, the face thing."
[22:52] Happy: "He's a right bastard," says Simone, whose Common is getting a lot better.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "Wel-" Zubera looks around "Someone just entered my realm."
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "Is it him?"
[22:55] Happy: "Can you see him?"
[22:56] Shadowcaller: "He is moving fast… he will be here any moment. He have a lot of magical artifacts…"
[22:57] Happy: "What defences do you have?" Hope says. She draws her sword.
[22:57] Murska: 'Let's get ready then.' Aegnor draws a sword.
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "There is some type of energy takers he wears around his neck."
[22:58] Shadowcaller: "Its small silver balls that takes the energy from a hit into itself."
[22:59] Happy: Simone opens her book. "Is there any way to stop a magic artifact from working in combat?"
[22:59] Murska: 'How are they attached? A chain?'
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "Removing them from the user is the simples way."
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "Yes, a thin chain around his neck."
[23:00] Murska: 'What else does he have?'
[23:01] Happy: "Zubera, what defences do /you/ have?"
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "I don't really… Let me rearrange the corridors…"
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "There, now he is trapped, I hope."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "Let me try to… he blinked!"
[23:03] Shadowcaller: "He is moving again, I delayed him I guess…"
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "For his magical items… a black sword… its something about it… Um, a silver chain mail that I suspect is enchanted somehow. A golden rod, some type of ring I think he blinked with, and a number of necklances and other rings I don't really know the enchantment of."
[23:06] Happy: "Promise should be here… he's your champion…" Hope says.
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "I wish he was here too.. do you like the statue of him?"
[23:10] Shadowcaller: You can hear someone moving nearby, Zubera turns in the direction of the sound. "I- what am I supposed to do?"
[23:11] Happy: "Back to the wall. We'll surround you."
[23:11] Happy: (and wait for Murska)
[23:12] Murska: Well, yeah, they set up in a formation to leave each of them enough space to defend while hopefully negating as much of the enemy mobility as possible?
[23:12] Murska: Simone and Zubera in the middle of the formation
[23:13] Shadowcaller: Zubera backs into the wall, she still looks quite calm, but maybe thats just the actor in her
[23:13] Happy: "Cessie, can you put some protective spells on her?"
[23:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I doubt anything would help, her natural defences is better then anything I can come up with…"
[23:14] Murska: Naib moves on the left side of the formation to best take advantage of his arm and because he's a bit uncertain about having his back to someone he has heard is insane and steals people's faces.
[23:15] Murska: Aegnor takes middle due to dualwielding and Hope takes right side?
[23:15] Happy: yeah
[23:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie should be in the middle, she won't be of much help here
[23:16] Murska: Yeah, of course.
[23:16] Shadowcaller: A running hooded figure appears in one of the entrances of the halls, it stops running and instead starts to walk towards the group
[23:16] Murska: The non-melee people are in the middle
[23:17] Shadowcaller: Alegias laughs gleefully as he stops some distance from you "You followed me? Why?"
[23:17] Happy: "Why are you killing the gods?"
[23:18] Shadowcaller: "Part of the plan, as they call it, but can't you see the fun of it? No mortal have ever dreamt of doing what I just have done… twice."
[23:20] Happy: "Well there you go. YOu've set your record, now get lost."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "I really wish I could, but each god is so unique, I just have to go on.. its addictive."
[23:22] Murska: (Why can't he target Helios or something…)
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "But if you prove too much of a challenge, I promise I will go looking for other gods."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (There are reasons for that…)
[23:23] Murska: 'Whose 'plan' was this?'
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "Charnell he called himself, I suspect its a fake name thought. Not that it will matter much to you."
[23:25] Murska: 'And who is he?'
[23:26] Shadowcaller: "Some cultist or something, I don't know, I never imagined I would have a conversation here."
[23:26] Happy: Simone whispers to Zubera. "Give me a mask."
[23:26] Murska: 'So what's he planning then?'
[23:26] Shadowcaller: Zubera looks at Hope strangely but then a mask appears in her hand which she gives to her
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "No idea of course, he just wanted me to be there when you opened the gate, then kill as many gods as possible with this blade."
[23:27] Happy: (That was Simone, not Hope)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: "We really do get to know each other don't we?"
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (Alegias)
[23:28] Murska: 'Indeed. What's in it for you? Just the fun of killing?'
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "Killing gods my friend, the thrill of doing something so… changing, its thrilling really. ANd of course, there is a lot of money in it."
[23:32] Murska: 'Mm. Yeah, we've killed a god aswell, I can see your point.'
[23:32] Murska: 'Didn't get much money though.'
[23:32] Happy: Simone puts on the mask and becomes a ninko.
[23:32] Shadowcaller: (A what?)
[23:32] Happy: a ninko is an invisible fox spirit that human beings can only perceive when it possesses them.
[23:33] Murska: Aegnor senses her disappear and turns to look behind. 'Wh…' He silences himself and turns back to look at the man.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "Well, its a shame… great talking with you thought, I just wish you would stand aside so I didnt have to hurt you…"
[23:34] Murska: 'Sorry, this god isn't prey.'
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "Hehe, got any other suggestions then? I'm all in for easy preys."
[23:35] Happy: The Ninko-Simone creeps out from the protective circle and approaches Aeglis
[23:36] Happy: *Alegias
[23:36] Murska: 'Hmm. Let me think… What are your ideas?'
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Powerful, lightly guarded… from my understanding of things, you know quite a lot of these gods."
[23:38] Murska: 'Yeah, I guess we hang around that kinds of places…'
[23:38] Happy: As long as he doesn't seem to notice her, Simone continues to creep closer
[23:39] Shadowcaller: Alegias is still in a almost sitting posotion, he appears to have his eyes locked on Aegnor, but its impossible to tell due his hood
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "Time is ticking, unless you want me to kill this one, suggest something else…now."
[23:40] Happy: Simone leaps at him and tries to possess him.
[23:41] Murska: 'Hmm. Helios, perhaps? Even the child could sneak around his realm, so it shouldn't be that difficult…'
[23:41] Happy: "Kuori would no doubt welcome the challenge," Hope says.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: There is a something breaking, Simone is thrown back as Alegias suddenly backs away "You.. thats the way you want to play it…"
[23:43] Murska: Aegnor seems somewhat confused. 'What?'
[23:43] Shadowcaller: *there is a sound of soemthing breaking
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Spirits, do you think your the only one with a spirit knife?"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: He takes up something from his robe
[23:44] Shadowcaller: Its a pair of glases
[23:45] Happy: (Is Simone wounded then?)
[23:45] Murska: Aegnor sheathes his sword and grabs a few daggers under his clothes. 'Spirits…'
[23:45] Murska: (Not godslayer though)
[23:45] Shadowcaller: (Nope, just a bit stunned.)
[23:45] Happy: (What broke then?)
[23:46] Shadowcaller: (One of his protections maybe?)
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "There you are…" He appears to look directly t Simone
[23:46] Shadowcaller: *at
[23:46] Happy: Simone returns to her feet and hisses at him.
[23:47] Shadowcaller: The next moment Simone can feel something lugged into her right shoulder
[23:48] Murska: Aegnor keeps a keen watch on Alegias and his movements.
[23:48] Happy: While Alegias is distracted, Hope throws a dagger at him.
[23:48] Murska: If/when he attacks, Aegnor'll throw daggers at him, one at his glasses, one at his throat.
[23:48] Murska: Hoping to cut sum necklaces
[23:48] Shadowcaller: (Well, he just threw a knife, but its really hard to keep track of him
[23:49] Happy: Simone runs forward, going behind Alegias so that if he looks at her, he'll have to turn his back to the others.
[23:49] Happy: And she tries to grab his robe in her teeth.
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (Wiat, she just got hit by a spirit knife in the shoulder? o.O)
[23:51] Shadowcaller: *wait
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (It really burns.)
[23:52] Happy: Oh… in that case, she'll limp back to the group
[23:53] Shadowcaller: Alegias moves sideways and manages to dodge the knives.
[23:53] Shadowcaller: He returns fire and throws a knife in Hopes direction
[23:54] Happy: Hope blocks the knife with her sword.
[23:54] Happy: Simone slips between them, making invisible fox whimpering
[23:55] Happy: But then she sends kitsune-bi after Alegias.
[23:55] Happy: (fox-fire)
[23:55] Murska: Aegnor keeps throwing daggers at the guy, three in a spread out pattern he'll have to either jump high or get down to avoid.
[23:56] Shadowcaller: Alegias suddenly fades away from sight "He's blinking!" Cesise yells as Aegnor feels something behind him…
[23:56] Murska: Aegnor stabs at the something with his right arm and turns
[23:56] Shadowcaller: The fox fire misses Aelgais too as he blinked
[23:57] Happy: Simone sends more at him… point blank range now, if he's right behind Aegnor.
[23:58] Shadowcaller: Aegnors knife meets a black blade and he feels a great force hitting his chest
[23:58] Murska: He doesn't even try resisting it but instead rolls backwards with it and leaps on his feet.
[23:59] Happy: Hope grabs Zubera to pull her to safety.
[23:59] Murska: Naib punches at the guy four times with his right arm as he turns.
[23:59] Happy: Pushing her back into a corner, and nearly crushing her, so there's no way for anyone to blink between Hope and Zubera.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: The foxfire and Naib hits Alegias at the same time, Naib could have sworn he hit him right on, but Alegias don't even shudder, instead he responds by swinging the bacl blade at Naib. Aegnor and Cessie can hear something crash.
[00:03] Shadowcaller: *back
[00:03] Murska: black?
[00:03] Murska: Naib blocks with his left arm
[00:03] Murska: Probably suprising the hell out of the guy. >.>
[00:04] Murska: Aegnor tosses some daggers as Hope takes Zubera out of the field of fire.
[00:04] Shadowcaller: *um yeah
[00:04] Murska: Still aiming at the throat.
[00:04] Happy: Simone pulls off the mask, and pulls the knife out of her shoulder with her left hand.
[00:05] Happy: (Did that make the wound worse or better?)
[00:05] Happy: (or neither?)
[00:05] Shadowcaller: (It must really hurt o.O)
[00:06] Shadowcaller: Alegias retreats backwards (that is a direction away from everyone), dodging the knives at the same time
[00:06] Murska: (Er, let's see)
[00:06] Murska: (He's near the wall, in front of Aegnor, wall behind him, Hope on the right side looking from him and Naib on the left
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (Against the wall I guess.)
[00:07] Murska: Aegnor sees Simone appear, wounded, and rushes to her. 'You all right?'
[00:07] Happy: Hope throws a few daggers to try and cut off his retreat.
[00:07] Murska: Naib approaches him and smashes at his head with his left arm.
[00:07] Murska: (If he dodges and unless the wall is magical, it goes through)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: One of them hits his cloak, but it don't appear to harm him
[00:08] Happy: Simone hands Aegnor the spirit knife. "Just get him." she hisses. Her eyes are flashing with her normal spirit and she doesn't seem to be in danger of death.
[00:09] Murska: Aegnor slides it into the place of one of the daggers he's thrown and, with the same movement, picks a throwing axe and yet another dagger to throw at the man, stepping between him and Simone.
[00:11] Shadowcaller: He mets Naibs left hand with the blade, when it touches his flesh this time it hisses. Then he proceds with taking up a dagger from his robe and try to stab Naib with it, his handwork is at a unatural speed
[00:11] Murska: (His metal armguard is what it touches)
[00:11] Happy: (So does Naib's head smashy hit happen?)
[00:11] Murska: (And the blow is magically strengthened)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: (Hm, missed that. I thought he was smashing Alegias head with his lf arm…)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: *left
[00:12] Murska: (Yes, he is)
[00:13] Murska: (Ah, right. Right arm. :P)
[00:13] Murska: (Sowwy)
[00:13] Happy: (Yes, you haven't said whether that hit or whether the wall got smashed)
[00:13] Murska: (The one with the buffs.)
[00:13] Shadowcaller: (The blade is very much magically enchanted.)
[00:14] Murska: (So it just hits the blade and the fist gets stopped cold?)
[00:14] Murska: (No effect on the blade?)
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (I guess it might damage the blade…)
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (Not breaking it outright, but do some serious damage too it.)
[00:15] Murska: Anyway, his un arm-guarded arm hits the dagger's blade with the side of his hand(martial arts chop hit style) and knocks it aside, he kicks the guy where the sun doesn't shine
[00:15] Shadowcaller: (what do he do against Alegias stabbing dagger?)
[00:16] Murska: (er, what I just said he did?)
[00:16] Murska: ("is un arm-guarded arm hits the dagger's blade with the side of his hand(martial arts chop hit style) and knocks it aside,"
[00:16] Shadowcaller: (Oh right, sorry.)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: Aegnor and Cessie can hear something break and Aelgias fades away again, dodging the axe and the dagger
[00:18] Shadowcaller: He appears quite some distance away from everyone, further into the hall
[00:18] Happy: "Could be an illusion," Simone says.
[00:19] Murska: Aegnor turns to him and throws even more daggers. That's eleven he's thrown, an axe and now two more.
[00:19] Happy: "Cessie, throw some spells at him. We've got to slow him down."
[00:19] Shadowcaller: He takes out something from his robe and drops it on the floor
[00:19] Happy: (Hope)
[00:19] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I- I don't think anything I do will ahve any effect on him."
[00:19] Shadowcaller: *have
[00:20] Murska: Naib runs towards him from the side as Aegnor steps between him and Simone again.
[00:20] Happy: "At least try."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: Easily dodging Aegnors knives
[00:20] Happy: Hope takes out her bow and starts raining arrows at him
[00:20] Happy: Which means she can't keep Zubera crushed in the corner.
[00:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie casts a spell against him which he dodges
[00:21] Murska: Is he still wearing those glasses?
[00:21] Shadowcaller: He still still near the position he dropped the object, moving back and fourth
[00:21] Shadowcaller: (impossible to tell due hood.)
[00:22] Murska: Naib approaches him very quickly, his armguarded arm turned to shield his face as he leans slightly forwards while running
[00:23] Happy: (GAH! why do people talk about suicide so much lately?!)
[00:23] Murska: (v.v)
[00:25] Shadowcaller: As he comes closer to Alegias he hear something snap in front of him. All around Niab forms prison bars that appears to be made out of glas, on top of them a celling, that looks like its made from the same material
[00:26] Murska: He punches at them as they start forming
[00:26] Shadowcaller: There is no apperent damage
[00:27] Murska: He keeps punching at them, then.
[00:27] Happy: Simone: "Zubera, change the walls. Maybe they can break the bars."
[00:27] Murska: After two punches, if there's no damage
[00:27] Murska: he'll punch at the floor
[00:27] Murska: Hard.
[00:27] Happy: (Can't Zubera do anything? :P)
[00:28] Murska: Aegnor takes out his longbow.
[00:28] Shadowcaller: (Hey, you are all attack one NPC here, I'm trying to keep the speed up which means I will have trouble controlling a lot of characters.)
[00:28] Happy: (Yes, but it's still her home here.)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Alegias changes position quickly, throwing a few daggers at the closest person that is not Naib
[00:29] Happy: Either Hope or Aegnor then. Hope is raining arrows at him, trying to coordinate with Aegnor so that they fill the space.
[00:30] Murska: Let's say Aegnor then. How many daggers?
[00:30] Shadowcaller: Two
[00:32] Murska: Aegnor won't dodge them, mostly since Simone's behind him. The first one hits his arm and the second one clangs to Godslayer under his clothing.
[00:32] Happy: Simone crawls over to Zubera and stays near her, pressing on her wound with her left hand and holding a dagger (very feebly) in her right.
[00:32] Happy: She's pretty much out of the fight.
[00:32] Murska: He pulls the dagger out of his arm and starts raining arrows on the man aswell, focusing on speed instead of accuracy.
[00:32] Murska: He's using the poisoned arrows, btw.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie casts two spells against him rapidly, but they they don'tappear to have that much effect
[00:34] Shadowcaller: Alegias throws something at the floor, whatever it is breaks and forms a transperent shield around Alegias, the arrows all bounce into it
[00:35] Happy: "Dispel magic!" Simone says to Cessie.
[00:36] Shadowcaller: "RIght." She casts the spell at the transperent shield, making it dissapear, Alegias curses and takes up something else from his robe while he is trying to dodge the arrows. Naib have little luck breaking whatever prison that have formed around him
[00:37] Murska: Naib's bashing at the floor
[00:37] Murska: which isn't made of whatever the prison is
[00:37] Murska: and thus should break
[00:37] Happy: Hope keeps up the rain of arrows.
[00:37] Murska: Same with Aegnor
[00:37] Happy: He shouldn't be able to dodge them all
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Well, the floor is craking up, but slowly, it made of a quite strong meterial apperently
[00:38] Happy: without dodging into the path of a different arrow.
[00:38] Happy: "Dispel the cage!"
[00:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, you can't really fire arrows that fast.)
[00:39] Murska: (Three in the air at once, at least)
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie casts another dispel magic at the cage, but it don't appear to effect it that much.
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Alegias fades away yet again
[00:40] Shadowcaller: As he finds it quite hard to dodge the arrows
[00:40] Shadowcaller: He appears in the middle of Hope adn Aegnor, slashing against Aegnors side with the blade
[00:41] Happy: Hope tries to tackle him.
[00:41] Shadowcaller: *and
[00:43] Murska: Aegnor attempts to leap out of the blade's way, throwing the bow away and trying to pull an axe between his flesh and the hit.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: Aegnor reacts, but perhaps a bit too late, he can feel the blade lightly slide into his left side, it hisses as it dose so. Cessie casts a spell in respons, but Alegias appears to be able to shrug it of. He is thrown off balance by hopes tackle however
[00:45] Murska: Naib tries to dislodge the cage by getting under it
[00:45] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels a intensive pain where the blade hit him
[00:46] Happy: HOpe tries to tear the robe off of him, preventing him from accessing any of his pretty toys.
[00:46] Shadowcaller: The cage is moving a bit, but not enough for him to get under it
[00:47] Shadowcaller: The floor is cracking up thought
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Hope tears off a large piece of Alegias robe as he manges to escape, it feels like fire in her hands however
[00:48] Murska: He'll smash at the floor until there's a large enough hole that if it was under the cage's wall he's get under it, then he'll smash at the ceiling to move the cage onto said hole and then he'll try to lift it off him
[00:48] Shadowcaller: A lot of things drop out of it
[00:48] Murska: Aegnor gets up quickly.
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels dizzy, sick
[00:49] Happy: Simone darts forward and starts gathering the dropped items. This is her specialty after all.
[00:49] Happy: Hope draws her sword and charges after Alegias.
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Alegias turns around and his and Hopes blade meets, she can see some cracks in it after it met Naibs fists
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Naib starts crawling under the cage
[00:51] Happy: She stabs at his throat with her dagger while his sword is blocked.
[00:51] Murska: Aegnor tries to shrug it off and attempts to hit Alegias with the two spirit knives.
[00:51] Murska: (Melee, not thrown)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: Alegias grips the hand Hope have the dagger and squeezes it extremly hard. He is much stronger then he looks like, desperatly Cessie throws herself at Aelgias that is caugh of guard. Aegnor, feeling very dizy still manges to hit him with his daggers, two crashing sounds can be heard and Alegias seems to panic a bit and drops Hopes hand and instead starts to retreat, fast
[00:56] Murska: Aegnor catches Cessie and slides one of the knifes back into it's spot.
[00:57] Murska: Naib still attempting to move the cage off him
[00:57] Shadowcaller: He finally manges to get out of iy
[00:57] Happy: Hope chases after him at full speed.
[00:57] Shadowcaller: *it
[00:57] Murska: He scrambles to his feet and runs after the guy, trapping him between Hope and Naib
[00:59] Happy: (and the cage should be blocking him too)
[01:00] Shadowcaller: Hopes hand feels pain shotting up in her hand, she doubt she will be able to use it for a while, Aegnor starts feeling increasingly dizzy, the feeling is very familiar…
[01:01] Murska: But he's too dizzy to recall it. He tries to stay upright.
[01:01] Murska: Naib kicks the guy to the legs and punches him to the face with his armguard'd hand.
[01:02] Happy: Hope sweeps her sword in an arc.
[01:03] Shadowcaller: Alegias leaps right up, over Naib, but he still hits him on his left side with his armguard
[01:03] Shadowcaller: He is thrown right into the wall
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "Stop!" He manges to say before you do antyhing else "I know when i'm beaten."
[01:04] Murska: Naib raises his armoured arm for another punch while hitting at his eyes(or glasses if there are such things left on him) four times with his other arm.
[01:04] Murska: (pursuing him to the wall)
[01:05] Happy: Hope tries to stab him and pin him to the wall with her sword.
[01:06] Shadowcaller: He manges in the last second to dodge Naibs blow and Hopes sword, but he have been thrown off-balance, he tries to retreat toward one of the exits when it suddenly closes
[01:07] Shadowcaller: He turns around facing the party
[01:07] Murska: Naib's left arm comes straight at his head with force enough to, again, break the wall.
[01:07] Murska: Aegnor stumbles a bit.
[01:09] Shadowcaller: He dodges again, he is like a cornered rat now, attacking Naib in return rapdily with his sword
[01:09] Happy: Hope is in blood rage, and keeps trying to kill.
[01:09] Shadowcaller: *rapidly
[01:09] Murska: Naib blocks the blade and attempts to pin it against the wall, raining blows on the guy with his feet and the unarmoured arm
[01:12] Shadowcaller: Alegias drops the sword and retreats backward, against the wall, he pulls up a knife and looks prepared to face death "Well, this is a good end…"
[01:12] Happy: "Die, you bastard," Hope says, and tries to stab him in the heart.
[01:12] Murska: Naib punches at the hand with the knife with his left arm.
[01:14] Shadowcaller: (So… Hope comes agianst him with her sword while Naib tries to punch out the knife with his hand?.. at exactly the same time?)
[01:15] Murska: (Naib's trying to crush his hand and the knife, probably)
[01:15] Happy: (he's holding the knife over his heart?)
[01:16] Shadowcaller: (Well, no but, it seems a bit thight really.)
[01:16] Happy: Not as tight as Michicora's beheading of the warmage.
[01:16] Murska: (Well, Naib's left of him while Hope's right-armed)
[01:16] Shadowcaller: (i guess…)
[01:19] Shadowcaller: Alegias don't move a inch, instead he manges to cut Hope in the side while she stabs him right in the chest with her blade, Naibs punch, while a bit late, cuases Alegias to drop his knife, he sinks down on the floor, a pool of blood already starting to form around him
[01:20] Murska: Naib crushes his head as a safety precaution.
[01:20] Happy: xD
[01:20] Shadowcaller: (Not the face! Anything but the face!)
[01:20] Murska: (Aww…)
[01:21] Shadowcaller: There is a sickening crushing sound and Alegias head is crushed by Naibs fists
[01:21] Happy: (Is Hope poisoned?)
[01:21] Murska: 'That should be it. I've never seen anyone come back after that.' Naib looks around at the others.
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (No, not really, just bleeding.)
[01:22] Murska: Aegnor has been taking a few steps towards the battle but feels dizzy and falls to his knees.
[01:22] Shadowcaller: Aegnors is hled by b Cessie, nad possilby her magic
[01:22] Shadowcaller: *held up by
[01:22] Murska: Ah. 'kay.
[01:22] Shadowcaller: *and
[01:22] Murska: *possibly
[01:22] Murska: :P
[01:22] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… darn keyboard.)
[01:22] Shadowcaller: (Its slowing down again.)
[01:23] Happy: Hope clutches her side and goes to Aegnor. "Where are you wounded?"
[01:23] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I think he hit him at the side."
[01:23] Murska: Aegnor's speech is a bit slurred. 's.d…'
[01:25] Happy: "Lie him down." She cuts his shirt off of him and examines his wound.
[01:25] Murska: Naib loots the enemy in the meanwhile.
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Its black, it looks very badly infected
[01:26] Shadowcaller: There isn't much left of him, all his artifacts appears to have dropped when Hope tore off his cloak
[01:26] Happy: Simone assists in looting. Little thief.
[01:26] Happy: So all the things he was wearing got broken?
[01:27] Shadowcaller: (Nope, the items that he dropped from the claok was not broken.)
[01:27] Murska: He checks the dagger for anything that'd mark it as special and takes it, the sword and any items he can find to the other end of the room and the others.
[01:28] Shadowcaller: The sword hisses when he touches it, the daggers appears to be quite ordinary thought
[01:29] Murska: He also gathers all unbroken arrows and daggers and throwing axes and whatever. What about the cage?
[01:29] Happy: Hope uses her herbs and healing to try to heal Aegnor's wound.
[01:29] Murska: What stuff did Simone gather from the rip-off of a cloak?
[01:30] Happy: (bwahaha… like she'll ever tell you!)
[01:30] Murska: (Heh.)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: The pile he dropped when his cloak was torn consists of two traps, a golden rod, one flat stone, much like Aegnors, two shield creators
[01:31] Shadowcaller: He got a chainmaiil and a few rings on his person however
[01:31] Murska: (Well, I'd assume the guy might've had an antidote to the poison)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: (Not exaclty…)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: *exactly
[01:31] Murska: Naib doesn't bother taking off the chainmail, which would take way too long, but he'll take the rings carefully with his armoured arm.
[01:31] Happy: (He probably had developed his own immunity)
[01:32] Happy: Hopes healing having any effect?
[01:32] Murska: (The sword was, according to him, just given to him a while ago)
[01:32] Shadowcaller: It appears to slow the effect a bit, but not curing it
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (mhm.)
[01:32] Murska: (Probably a sentient artifact or something)
[01:32] Murska: Naib drops the sword near Hope. 'Here's the cursed thing.'
[01:33] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Sorry- I think he did something to me there."
[01:33] Happy: "If it's a magical effect… I don't know anything about how to stop it. Cessie? Do you?"
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "No, not really… but you can cure it right? Its nothing dangerous?"
[01:34] Murska: Aegnor's still gripping the knife Simone gave him, but appears to have fallen unconscious.
[01:34] Happy: "I can't heal it. I can just keep it from getting worse."
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "We should go to a god specialised in healing…"
[01:35] Happy: Hope looks at Simone and then Naib, to see who is hurt the worse. Though it's probably Hope herself.
[01:35] Murska: Naib isn't hurt.
[01:36] Murska: There's a tiny cut in the side of his palm, but it's not like she'd notice that.
[01:36] Murska: 'We'd better hurry, then. Which god?'
[01:37] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Well.. the only ones I know are Artaris and possibly Kuori."
[01:37] Murska: (Neither really striked me as a God of Healing)
[01:37] Happy: "Kuori… I don't know if you will be safe there."
[01:37] Murska: (Strikes. Or struck.)
[01:38] Shadowcaller: (Artaris is pretty much that type of god.)
[01:38] Happy: (yeah, we went to one of his clerics in Isandwana, didn't we?)
[01:38] Shadowcaller: (you did.)
[01:39] Murska: (Hm. Well, I thought he's the lawful 'main deity' type of god)
[01:39] Happy: Hope tries to treat Simone's wound. It's just a normal wound now that she's not a spirit thing, right?
[01:39] Shadowcaller: (He is, and that really includes healing.)
[01:39] Murska: (I guess.)
[01:39] Shadowcaller: (It is yes.)
[01:39] Murska: (Not gonna argue since it's my character dying here)
[01:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Can you hurry? We must go NOW!"
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "I can't carry him by myself… sadly."
[01:41] Murska: Naib picks up the sadly ignored sword(which isn't crying, though, like the one for Kuja) as they prepare to leave.
[01:41] Shadowcaller: (Darn you and your crying swords.)
[01:42] Happy: "I'm not sure I can either."
[01:42] Happy: Hope has one damaged hand and a cut in her side
[01:42] Murska: 'I will.'
[01:42] Happy: "If we only have to think ourselves there."
[01:43] Happy: "Have everyone gather around him?"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "Whatever, I will go with him…"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "Hurry…hurry!"
[01:43] Happy: So everyone gathers around and holds hands, and thinks of Artaris?
[01:43] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "I better come too… I will met you there." She fades away
[01:44] Murska: Aegnor's unconscious thoughts are very probably not about Artaris, though. Probably more about Cessie.
[01:44] Shadowcaller: Well, the group is transported
[01:46] Shadowcaller: You are at the middle of a town square, the house around you appears to be made of white marble, you are being watched by a human-looking crowd
[01:46] Happy: Aegnor with us?
[01:46] Shadowcaller: He is
[01:46] Happy: "We need a healer!" Hope calls out.
[01:47] Shadowcaller: A entity that you regnonize as one of Artaris servants hurries toward you.
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "What is this? Who is damaged?" He looks down and she/he realizes that its quite obvious who needs it
[01:48] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Please stay with me, please stay with me…"
[01:48] Happy: "It was a cursed sword. Probably the weapon that killed the other gods."
[01:49] Happy: "Naib has the weapon that did it."
[01:49] Murska: Naib shows it.
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "Let me attempt to heal him…" The sevant kneels down before Aegnor and touches him lightly
[01:50] Shadowcaller: The wound seems to slow down, but is not cured
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "Hm… let me look at that sword." The servant attempts to grab it but it hisses, she/he quickly gets his/her hands off it "Thats.. a legion.."
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "Or connected with a legion at least."
[01:52] Murska: 'So, can you do something?'
[01:52] Happy: Simone: "Could he have bound the killed gods into it?"
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "We must take this higher… he and anyone that feels its absolutely nessecary to be with him must follow me."
[01:53] Happy: (Is the servant going to try and heal the others?)
[01:53] Shadowcaller: "Well… its possible that he drained the gods with the sword, it dose have a weakening effect on them I think."
[01:54] Shadowcaller: (he don't have much time Aegnor is the highest priority since he might die.)
[01:54] Murska: (Cessie's probably screaming for him to get going?)
[01:55] Shadowcaller: Inside Aegnor he can feel a sickening feeling, a presence he haven't felt since Isandwana
[01:55] Shadowcaller: She is yes
[01:55] Happy: Hope and Simone stay behind then.
[01:56] Shadowcaller: "Calm down miss, I'm doing everything in my power…"
[01:56] Happy: No, Simone tries to go with them.
[01:56] Happy: Hope is too wounded to do much.
[01:56] Shadowcaller: Two from the crowd carefully lifts up Aegnor
[01:56] Murska: Aegnor fights it, I guess. Nothing much to do with an unconscious character.
[01:56] Murska: Naib'll also stay behind.
[01:57] Murska: Zubera?
[01:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie, Aegnor and the carriers follows the servant
[01:57] Murska: Is anywhere?
[01:57] Shadowcaller: (she will be.)
[01:57] Happy: Simone follows too
[01:57] Happy: unless someone stops her
[01:57] Shadowcaller: No one of the NPC's are
[01:57] Murska: Naib asks someone to heal Hope while they're at it.
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Another servant tends Hope and the other wounded
[01:58] Murska: Simone, that is. Unless they feel the need to heal the tiny cut Naib has.
[02:00] Happy: Now that Alegias is dead, and she is healed, Hope pulls Promise's cloak around her and thinks of him, trying to wish her way to his side.
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Do Simone let herself get healed or dose she follow the servant?
[02:02] Happy: She's following Aegnor
[02:02] Happy: Unless the Servant stops her to suggest healing.
[02:02] Murska: Naib seems to be about to say something but doesn't, since Hope seems to be concentrating on something.
[02:05] Happy: (does Hope vanish?)
[02:07] Shadowcaller: (Nope…err.. I might need to end it now sadly:S
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Can we continue tomorrow?
[02:07] Murska: Today?
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Well yeah >.>
[02:08] Happy: Sure, we can end it now. Hope will probably just burst into tears when she doesn't go anywhere. :(
[02:08] Shadowcaller: Well, i decide if she vanish later then…
[02:08] Happy: That makes a whole new subquest if she does
[02:09] Happy: because it's not like Aegnor would leave without her
[02:09] Murska: Nobody in Assassins has gotten GAThraawn's name right. :P
[02:09] Murska: But then again, what'd she do? Wolfbane's still not here.
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Good Night, I really need to leave >.>
[02:09] Happy: goodnight
[02:09] *** Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
