Kyou 60

[22:07] Happy: So, when we last saw our heroes…
[22:08] Shadowcaller: Yes
[22:08] Happy: Cessie and Simone were following Aegnor deeper into … the temple or whatever
[22:08] Happy: Hope had just been healed, and Naib was next to her in the town square
[22:10] Happy: Hope pulls the cloak around her and tries to wish herself to Promise's side.
[22:10] Shadowcaller: Nothing happends
[22:12] Happy: Hope bursts into tears.
[22:12] Murska: Naib: 'What's wrong?'
[22:13] Happy: "I thought I could go to him by thinking."
[22:13] Murska: 'Him… you mean your mate?'
[22:14] Shadowcaller: The servant leads Cessie and the still unconscious Aegnor throught the white city, they are met by strange glares here and there, but otherwise this appears to be a normal sight here
[22:14] Happy: "Yes."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: (Simone follows them?)
[22:16] Shadowcaller: The servanr healing Hope would like to heal her too
[22:16] Happy: Simone stays next to Cessie.
[22:16] Murska: 'Maybe the thinking thing is just to get to god's realms. We'll find him. Maybe one of the gods could help.'
[22:16] Happy: "I won't give up," Hope says.
[22:17] Happy: (What is the servant trying to do to get Simone's attention?)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "Wait, you are wounded!"
[22:18] Happy: "I have to stay with Miss Cessie."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "They both will be fine…"
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "But you look seriously wounded however…"
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "You need to stay here."
[22:21] Happy: "No, I can't…" she doesn't stop during this.
[22:22] Shadowcaller: The servant don't try to stop her, instead he goes back to help the others
[22:24] Shadowcaller: Soon Cessie, Aegnor and Simone are lead to a great tempel like building, its larger then anything you have seen before
[22:25] Shadowcaller: There are two large golem-like guards at the entrance, they pay you no heed however
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Inside the tempel there are many servants, humans, wolfen, dwarves and some lizard-like creatures
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Servant: "This might take a while…"
[22:27] Murska: Naib: 'What I've seen of you in the past days, I'm pretty sure you won't.'
[22:27] Happy: "What happened to him?" Simone says.
[22:27] Happy: "At least… the gate is open now. And the gods are safe." /Hope
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "His life is slowly draining away by some unknown force."
[22:28] Murska: 'Yeah. We're proceeding. Always a good thing, instead of sitting somewhere not doing anything.'
[22:29] Happy: "But… Miss Hope say she stop it from getting worse!"
[22:29] Shadowcaller: The servant leads on, throught a long corridor with large statues of what you assume to be heroes of some kind
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "The hall of champions…" The servant comments as you go pass seemingly endless rows of statues
[22:30] Happy: Simone doesn't really look. She stumbles a little, weak from her wound, and has to concentrate on keeping up.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "She gave him energy, it will now take more time for him to be drained…"
[22:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't say anything, she is keeping close to Aegnor, looking extremly worried, almost at the brink of crying
[22:33] Happy: "But you can save him, right?"
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "We hope someone higher up can… and I'm going to the highest possible source."
[22:34] Shadowcaller: You come to stair that looks to be made of glas, it dosen't look to be supported by anything. Ignoring the laws of gravity
[22:35] Shadowcaller: The servant stops for a while, healing Aegnor again
[22:35] Shadowcaller: Then you continue up the stairs, up, up and up
[22:35] Shadowcaller: This is not very plesant for Simone
[22:36] Happy: She probably starts to lag behind
[22:36] Happy: She doesn't have super-human endurance or anything.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: The servant stops "For Ataris sake… you need healing."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: He comes closer to Simone
[22:37] Happy: "I sorry. Don't make Mr Aegnor wait."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "It will only take a moment my child…"
[22:37] Happy: She's too weak to resist.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: She feels all her wounds close and her energy is restored
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "There, are you feeling better?"
[22:39] Happy: Simone nods. "Thank you."
[22:39] Happy: She runs to catch up to Cessie, and takes her hand.
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "No problems my child… now we need to move on." He strides forward.
[22:40] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes her hand and squeezes it hard
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "He will make it…" She whispers to herself, but so Simone can hear it
[22:41] Happy: Simone doesn't answer. She's seen enough death that denial doesn't work for her.
[22:43] Shadowcaller: After what feels like an endless number of stairs you finally come up to another room, there are two windows at each side of it and a fountain with four statues looking like angels, or angels with hoods.
[22:43] Shadowcaller: You can hear upset voices in the distance
[22:44] Shadowcaller: One of them is Zuberas
[22:44] Happy: "Zubera!" Simone calls out.
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "The waiting room, hopefully there aren't too many waiting…"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: She can see Zubera in the distance, arguing with a with someothing that looks to be made of fire and light
[22:45] Shadowcaller: *with
[22:45] Shadowcaller: *something
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Simone?" She turns around nad so dose the fire/light creature
[22:46] Shadowcaller: *and
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "Thief…" She can hear it mutter as she comes closer
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "Is Aegnor okay?"
[22:47] Shadowcaller: (Zubera.)
[22:47] Happy: Simone shakes her head no, where Cessie can't see.
[22:48] Shadowcaller: The servant, Cessie, Aegnor and his carriers are right behind Simone.
[22:49] Happy: Then Simone just meets Zubera's eyes without answering.
[22:49] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Good that you came here in time, I hope Artari won't be too busy to deal with this…"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Fire/light entity: "Who are these people Zubera? Are they part of your worshippers?"
[22:51] Happy: "He opened the gate and stopped the one who was killing gods! You have to help him!" Simone says, passionately.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "…This is not Ataris I'm afraid." SHe glances back at the fire/light entity "Only a lesser, more twisted god."
[22:52] Murska: Meanwhile Aegnor is waging his own war in the depths of his subconscious against the presence yet again invading his mind.

[22:54] Shadowcaller: Fire/light entity: "Silence face stealer, you will face your punishment in time… as will everyone."
Zubera: "Just ignore Norhold for now…" She turns to the servant. "I belive we can enter now?"

[22:55] Happy: (big chat?)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: Servant: "yes, but only the wounded, his mate, the girl and me of course.."
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Very well, I see you outside then…" She makes a bow toward Simone and Cessie
[22:58] Shadowcaller: The door opens, at the other side there is yet another hall, this one is round and would be completly empty if not a altar at the far side of it
[22:58] Shadowcaller: The Servant makes some type of gesture and nods you do to the same
[23:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie makes the gesture quickly
[23:00] Happy: So does Simone.
[23:00] Shadowcaller: You enter the hall, the doors closes behind you
[23:01] Shadowcaller: You go to the altar where the servant gestures to the carriers to drop Aegnor
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Servant: "Maybe its best you talk with him?" He turns to Simone
[23:03] Shadowcaller: "You know this elf better then I do and she looks a bit worn…"
[23:03] Shadowcaller: He glances at Cessie
[23:03] Happy: Simone nods, and looks to see who she's supposed to talk to.
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Servant: "He dosen't appear for mortals, unless your one of his prophets, just think what you wna to say…"
[23:04] Shadowcaller: *want
[23:06] Happy: "Please help him. He… he try so hard to help people. Even though it hurt him. He fight the Legion, and he open the gate. And then someone come to kill gods and he not show he is afraid. He just come and fight to protect you."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: /You are Simone, from Isandwana./
[23:07] Happy: "Yes."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: /Sad what happend to it…/
[23:08] Happy: "…?"
[23:09] Shadowcaller: The voice is sounding unlike any human or mortal or godly voices she heard before.
[23:10] Shadowcaller: /You didn't know?… We can talk about this later Simone since i have already decided to aid you, this one may have cuased a few innocent deaths due his own hidden sides but otherwise he is worthy.. far more then many that I have aided./
[23:11] Shadowcaller: The hall is filled with light
[23:11] Shadowcaller: And Aegnor wakes up, as he had been sleeping
[23:11] Shadowcaller: The light fades away again
[23:13] Murska: 'Uhn…'
[23:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Aegnor! Thank Artaris.. thank you so much…" She puts her arms around him carefully as afraid that he might suddenly break apart.
[23:13] Shadowcaller: The servant kneels in a prayer
[23:13] Shadowcaller: The carriers do the same
[23:14] Happy: Simone kneels, but doesn't really know about prayer
[23:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie just have eyes fro Aegnor at the moment "How are you feeling? Are you okay?" Tears are filling her eyes, but she don't wipe them away.
[23:15] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels a bit dizzy but otherwise okay
[23:15] Murska: 'I'm… fine. I think.'
[23:16] Happy: /Thank you./
[23:16] Murska: Aegnor remembers something. 'It… it was the same as the Worm. The curse. Is there another Legion?'
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "I thought… I almost thought… never mind, just.. never mind, you are here." She smiles, tears running down her cheeks.
[23:17] Shadowcaller: /That was the worm I'm afraid Aegnor of the elves./
[23:18] Shadowcaller: /The same worm I think destroyed Isandwana…/
[23:18] Happy: (Does Simone hear this?)
[23:18] Shadowcaller: (everyone hears this.)
[23:18] Murska: /What? Destroyed…/
[23:19] Shadowcaller: /Yes, Isandwana have been completly destroyed. I just learned this myself from Helios./
[23:19] Shadowcaller: /Apperenlty, according to him, it happend shortly after you left it./
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (Who had the blade?)
[23:20] Murska: (Naib, I think.)
[23:20] Happy: (Naib)
[23:20] Happy: (he showed it to the servant)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (huh, then I think the servant took it.)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (that was what supposed to happend anyway.)
[23:21] Happy: Simone doesn't speak. Her thoughts are torn between horror and amazement that she escaped in time.
[23:22] Shadowcaller: The servant stands up "Master… the blade… you mean it is connected to the worm?"
[23:22] Shadowcaller: /Yes./
[23:23] Shadowcaller: /That now have gained the energy of two gods… and would have gined more if you had not stopped its pawn./
[23:24] Shadowcaller: *gained
[23:24] Murska: 'Alegias… He told us someone who had called himself Charnell put him up to it.'
[23:25] Shadowcaller: /I am not familiar with that name sadly./
[23:26] Shadowcaller: /Was there any other type of evidence? I knew Alegias when he was alive… once he even worshipped me. But he turned away from me./
[23:26] Murska: (Simone had the contact rock, I think)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (She did.)
[23:27] Happy: Simone is sort of in shock at the moment. "Everyone… gone?"
[23:28] Shadowcaller: /I do not know who made it out alive, Helios was very thrifty with the information./
[23:29] Shadowcaller: (replace thirfty with sparse for better understanding.)
[23:29] Happy: "Helios is a gutterworm," Simone spits.
[23:30] Shadowcaller: /He is my informant, or well our informant./
[23:30] Happy: "I speak to him many times, and he never tell me."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: /While I'm glad he don't tell everything to everyone, I find it very strange that he never told you this./
[23:32] Happy: Anger was enough to get Simone back to her senses. She takes the items stolen from Alegias out of the various folds and hidden pockets
[23:33] Happy: "He say he follow us from Saltcross, on Zeppelin. And he carry these things. Maybe there more to find on his body. We not have time to look."
[23:33] Shadowcaller: The contact stone looks exactly like the one Aegnor have
[23:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I think something more then Alegias followed us to Isandwana…"
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "If the worm followed us there… why didn't it follow us to the place we crashed?"
[23:39] Happy: "… are they all dead too?" Simone asks quietly
[23:40] Shadowcaller: /I don't know Simone, you better ask your god about this… whatever feelings you have about him./
[23:40] Happy: /Helios? Why didn't you tell me?/
[23:42] Shadowcaller: /Simone? Well its simple really, I didn't knew anything until the gate came back up./
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (Helios.)
[23:43] Happy: /Isandwana was destroyed long time ago, Artaris say./
[23:43] Happy: /Right after we leave it. /
[23:44] Happy: (mustiado is not having fun in insanowar :( )
[23:44] Shadowcaller: /Well… no one told me about it, the whole city just dissapeared without a trace. *I* was the one who told him that anyway./
[23:44] Shadowcaller: (How do you mean?)
[23:45] Happy: (apparently he's gettting ganged up on and his army killed without the enemy taking casualties)
[23:45] Happy: /What about the Wolfen, where we crashed? They disappear too?/
[23:46] Shadowcaller: /Not what I have heard at least./
[23:46] Happy: /And where is the worm now? You can't want to help him. Worm only destroy. Not help you at all./
[23:47] Shadowcaller: /I have no idea where the worm is, if I would have know, I would have told you about it./
[23:48] Happy: /Who is Charnell? Or Nephilim?/
[23:49] Murska: (That latter name keeps making me think of the race in Spidweb's games)
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /Nephlilim? Hehe… why do you ask?/
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /Seems like someone like to use dark names./
[23:50] Happy: /He the one who have us meet Alegius. So he must know something./
[23:50] Shadowcaller: /Nephilim means "worm" on afish./
[23:50] Murska: 'More accursed cultists…?'
[23:50] Murska: (Er, scratch)
[23:50] Murska: (meant ())
[23:51] Shadowcaller: /Charnell means "whisper"/
[23:51] Shadowcaller: /Why do you ask anyway Simone? Who was named that?/
[23:52] Happy: /Maybe I not tell you anything more until you tell us something/ *cross voice*
[23:53] Shadowcaller: /I have told you something haven't I?/
[23:54] Shadowcaller: /…Nevermind, keep your secrets. I got my own sources./
[23:54] Happy: /Everyone I ever know dead for months and you not tell me./ She thinks a few obscenities in her native tongue at him, and breaks off.
[23:56] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "What did he tell you?"
[23:57] Murska: Meanwhile, Aegnor has gotten up. All by himself.
[23:57] Murska: At least this time it wasn't his ribs.
[23:57] Murska: >.>
[23:57] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[23:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie is close to Aegnor, giving him a helping hand if needed.
[23:58] Happy: "Wolfen are still alive. Nephilium mean worm. Charnell mean whisper. He not say anything else. <obscenity>"
[23:58] Happy: (Yes, she's cursing in a temple, right in front of a god…)
[23:58] Murska: 'In what language?'
[23:59] Shadowcaller: (afish, both of them. Afish is a ancient human language, hardly anyone (not even Simone) knows it anymore.)
[23:59] Happy: "Something call 'afish'. I not know it."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: The servant looks a bit shocked after Simones curses, but don't say anything.
[00:01] Happy: Simone has nothign else to say. She's pretty much in shock.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Aegnor… remember how we sat in Yani's house? When we banished that thing that was in your head?"
[00:03] Murska: 'Yeah… I don't think I'll forget.'
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "That was the worm right?"
[00:04] Murska: 'Yes.' Aegnor looks rather serious. 'Second time now… it won't resurface or anything, will it?'
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "No, thats not what I'm getting at. The worm knew where we was going beacuse of that thing in your head… then we banished it…"
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "It didn't know where we was anymore." She looks around doubrfully "Do that make any sense to you?"
[00:07] Murska: '…so it went to where it last got information of us… and killed everyone?'

Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 5008): Wed Jun 24 00:17:38 2009
[00:17] Shadowcaller: egnor säger:
'…so it went to where it last got information of us… and killed everyone?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Maybe it got angry…"
"Its only a theory."

[00:18] Happy: Simone looks for a dark corner or something to go and hide in.
[00:18] Shadowcaller: There are no corners in this room since its oval
[00:19] Shadowcaller: And there is no darkness either
[00:19] Happy: She feels very lost then. I guess she'll go huddle next to Aegnor and Cessie then.
[00:20] Shadowcaller: Servant: "Is there anything else you wish to speak with our lord about? Otherwise I suggest you leave now… from what I have heard there are many others that wishes to speak with you."
[00:22] Happy: Simone follows Aegnor and Cessie's lead here.
[00:22] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I have quite many questions… but they can wait until later."
[00:23] Murska: 'Yeah. Is everyone else all right?'
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "We left them down in this city…"
[00:24] Shadowcaller: "They are okay." Cessie smiles "Not a singel scratch."
[00:25] Murska: 'Good to hear. Let's go see them then.'
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Yes, lets tell them your okay."
[00:26] Happy: I guess Simone picked up the magic items again
[00:27] Murska: And I guess they go.
[00:27] Happy: Mostly from instinct rather than decision. Are we leaving the cursed sword behind for them to deal with?
[00:27] Shadowcaller: As they leave the oval room there appears to have come additional guests to the waiting room
[00:27] Shadowcaller: (I think you did since the servant had it.)
[00:28] Happy: Simone is just walking along in shock, still looking for a place to hide.
[00:29] Murska: Aegnor'll take her hand, I guess.
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Aegnor, you are okay!"
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Cessie is already holding his other hand
[00:29] Murska: 'Likewise.' Aegnor smiles.
[00:30] Happy: Aegnor took Simone's hand?
[00:30] Shadowcaller: A figure drapped in shadows that only can be Helios is there too, along with Norhold and a large dragon-skeleton that takes up much of the room.
[00:31] Murska: Yeah.
[00:31] Happy: Simone kind of clings to him forlornly then.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: Helios: "There are the brave heroes… I belive you are quite famous in these parts now. Rumors spread quickly after all."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "They have still commited crimes Helios, not that you would understand the meaning of "guilt"."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Dragon-skeleton: "Humans… and a elf? intruiging."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Ignore them, lets go back to the others…"
[00:34] Shadowcaller: (Where are the others?)
[00:35] Happy: (the town square)
[00:36] Happy: (They wouldn't have wandered off without knowing where Aegnor had been taken.)
[00:37] Shadowcaller: You return there then, this time you draw a lot more eyes to yourself
[00:38] Shadowcaller: You can see Hope at the others at the town square, quite a lot of people looking at them curiosly
[00:38] Shadowcaller: (Most of these people appears dressed in a Cessie-like dress code.)
[00:38] Happy: Hope sees that Aegnor is walking, and runs to meet him.
[00:38] Happy: Sparing him the glomp though, since she doesn't know how healed he is.
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "He is okay… he have been healed.
[00:40] Murska: Naib follows her. Aegnor smiles at them. 'Didn't think something like that could keep me down, eh?'
[00:40] Shadowcaller: She sobs, but then calms herself again
[00:42] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "You are quite famous around here now, the other gods are going to contact you soon. I think they want you to represent them…"
[00:42] Happy: "Simone? Your wound… I never got to look at it," Hope says.
[00:44] Happy: Simone doesn't answer, so Hope kneels down to look, and sees that it is healed. Though of course the saree is ripped and bloody.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Isandwana.. it have been razed."
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "Destroyed… he said the worm did it."
[00:48] Happy: Hope looks at Cessie, stunned as the news penetrates, then she tries to hug Simone. "Oh, Simone, I'm so sorry…"
[00:49] Happy: Simone doesn't hug her back. "It not matter. At least I get away first," she mutters. But she's still clinging to Aegnor's hand.
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Maybe we should find some more private space?"
[00:51] Happy: "Yes," Hope says. But she sort of looks around helplessly, not knowing her way around this realm. Especially since it is in the form of a crowded town.
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "We can go everywhere you want, we don't even need to be in this city if you don't want to."
[00:53] Happy: "Why were the other gods here?" Hope asks.
[00:54] Murska: 'Hm. Somewhere more private and a bit more calm, perhaps? Would you know somewhere suitable?' Aegnor asks Zubera.
[00:55] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "They are here about what has happend Hope, everyone is pretty worked up about this… but I will tell you the rest somewhere more private.. and familliar."
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "Are you ready? We are going to visit Helena I think…"
[00:57] Murska: 'Sure.'
[00:58] Murska: Naib's looking a bit confused but goes along with it, as usual.
[00:58] Happy: Hope agrees. Simone says nothing.
[00:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I never actually visited it.. but I would love to."
[00:59] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Hang on…" *you are transported to Helenas realm where Happy decides how it looks like*
[01:00] Happy: It's a realm of beauty, but man-made (elf-made?) rather than natural beauty. Highly landscaped gardens with marble fountains
[01:01] Shadowcaller: The party and Zubera appears somewhere in it
[01:01] Happy: Cessie will feel very comfortable here. It's a place that's completely tame.
[01:02] Shadowcaller: (Well, she would have felt quite comfortable in the city too if it had not been for Aegnors injuru.)
[01:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie relaxes
[01:03] Shadowcaller: For the first time since the fight
[01:03] Shadowcaller: Still holding Aegnors arm thighly
[01:05] Happy: Helena is sitting at a bench near a reflecting pool (of course)
[01:05] Happy: How are the Gallionians?
[01:05] Shadowcaller: (They are quite fine.)
[01:06] Shadowcaller: (Kyou have been thrown into chaos, there are no counter attacks.)
[01:06] Shadowcaller: (three of their leaders are dead, the fourth have dissapeared.)
[01:07] Murska: (I'd imagine the leader of the Guard is trying to organize them somewhat)
[01:07] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, but its not going very well, elves and wolfen attacking? They think there is some kind of gigantic war on the way.)
[01:08] Happy: (probably some slave revolts in the chaos)
[01:08] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, not that the guards will be unable to handle that at least.)
[01:09] Happy: (I bet some have escaped )
[01:09] Shadowcaller: (Possibly.)
[01:10] Murska: (And what about Arik/Undead?)
[01:10] Happy: Helena is waiting for everyone to approach.
[01:10] Shadowcaller: (Arik have left you, along with his undead.)
[01:11] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "Hello Helena, we thought we should pay you a visit… so much have happend the last moments."
[01:13] Happy: "I don't know how I can thank you all. It hurt so much being cut off from my people."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Being cut off from you wasn't that plesant either…"
[01:16] Murska: 'And your people worked hard to get that connection back. They did more than any of the followers of any other gods.'
[01:17] Happy: "I know. Gilraen and Freedom have told me everything."
[01:17] Happy: (Will the souls of the fallen come to her realm then?)
[01:18] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[01:18] Happy: "And of course, the fallen have come to me, since the gate has opened."
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "I am glad… we would never have made it without them."
[01:19] Shadowcaller: (Cessie:)
[01:19] Shadowcaller: *.)
[01:20] Shadowcaller: "We most honor them, they gave their life for this, everyone should know what they did."
[01:21] Murska: 'Yeah. They faced off an army with just a few weeks of training.'
[01:23] Shadowcaller: "The other gods should thank them.. they own them."
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Zubera: "I know I will thank them… is there anything I can do for them Helena?"
[01:28] Happy: "What is going on, Zubera? What did you need to talk to us about?" Hope asks.
[01:30] Shadowcaller: Zubera sigh, "You are lucky to have been outside the never ending intrigues of the greater gods Helena. I just returned to them myself…"
[01:30] Shadowcaller: "There is a lot of rumors going on right now among them… of a traitor."
[01:32] Murska: Aegnor looks for a bench nearby to sit down on.
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "Someone who allowed Alegias to enter the realms, which otherwise not would have been possible."
[01:33] Happy: There are lots of benches and low walls
[01:33] Happy: "But it happened so fast," Hope says. "He couldn't have contacted anyone."
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "Well, they say they already had it planned before the gate was closed, but I don't belive that.."
[01:36] Shadowcaller: "Norhold and Kuori are upset, they want someone to put the blame on."
[01:36] Happy: "Helios knew gate was closing," Simone says in a monotone.
[01:37] Shadowcaller: "He did? He told you that the gate was closing?"
[01:37] Shadowcaller: "But- why didn't you tell me Simone? Or Helena?"
[01:40] Happy: "We were in the forest when Simone found out. We were hurrying back to Gallion, but it happened before we could prepare."
[01:40] Happy: (Hope)
[01:40] Shadowcaller: "Okay… I understand."
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "But he knew then…"
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "How did he know? Did he tell you that?"
[01:42] Happy: Simone doesn't answer. She seems to be shrinking into herself.
[01:44] Murska: Aegnor looks at her, worried, and doesn't say anything. Naib, when they arrived, looked around at the beautiful surroundings for a bit but is again just tagging along the group without much involvment.
[01:45] Happy: "Does this have to happen now? I think she needs rest," Hope says quietly to Zubera.
[01:46] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head "She can rest all she want, you all can rest now.. you deserve it. Sorry for getting you so involved in this blasted plots we have…"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: *these
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "Are you staying here?" She looks around at the pary
[01:47] Shadowcaller: *party
[01:49] Happy: "I don't know," Hope says. "I wanted to try and find Promise."
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "Thats what I was about to do…"
[01:51] Murska: 'And the situation near Kyou is still volatile.'
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "Yes… I belive the other gods will attempt to conctact you pretty soon, I don't know how long I can keep you from getting you involved in their plots."
[01:52] Murska: Aegnor sighs.
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "Just try to take it easy for now, rest here… a while… I will tell you if I find Promise."
[01:55] Happy: "Tell me at once, whatever you find out." Hope says, the last part barely audible.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "I will Hope, I will…"
[01:55] Shadowcaller: Zubera fades away
[01:56] Shadowcaller: After so much action you can hardly belive how peaceful it is now, here in Helenas realm
[01:59] Happy: Helena leads them inside, where it is just as beautiful, with fine paintings.
[02:00] Happy: Somehow less interesting than the art in Zubera's realm. It's all beautiful things.
[02:01] Shadowcaller: "Hard to belive its over…"
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (Cessie.)
[02:02] Murska: 'Let's not say anything yet.' Aegnor says with a light tone.
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "Well, at least this part is over."
[02:02] Happy: She leads you to a suite of rooms. All well lit and comfortable. Very fine furnishings.
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "Now the consequences of our actions start to happend…"
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "Its very beatuiful Helena." Cessie says in a slight higher voice
[02:04] Shadowcaller: *slightly
[02:06] Happy: "I'll leave you to rest."
[02:06] Happy: Simone is still in shock.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Thank you." She nods tiredly
[02:07] Shadowcaller: (how are the rooms arranged?)
[02:08] Murska: brb, food
[02:08] Murska: Aegnor'll try to comfort Simone.
[02:10] Happy: Four bedrooms around a larger sitting room. And there's a luxurious bathroom with actual plumbing and hot water.
[02:11] Happy: Simone clings to Aegnor's hand, but doesn't cry or say anything.
[02:15] Happy: (Is Cessie going to say anything to her?)
[02:16] Shadowcaller: (sory was brb.)
[02:16] Shadowcaller: (*Sorry.)
[02:18] Shadowcaller: "Simone, you don't need to say anything. I don't think you can express it in words, or that we would understand it… just sit here with us a while okay?"
[02:19] Shadowcaller: Aegnor, Cessie and Simons sits down at the nearest bed/bench
[02:20] Happy: In the sitting room, so there are cushioned settees
[02:20] Shadowcaller: They sit down there then
[02:21] Shadowcaller: Just sitting close to each other, not doing anything else
[02:21] Happy: Hope is there too. She knows something of what Simone must be feeling, but she also knows she can't really say anything that will help.
[02:23] Shadowcaller: They just sit there for a while then, Cessie holds Simones hand if she wants to
[02:25] Happy: Eventually she'll fall asleep, leaning against Aegnor.
[02:25] Happy: (Sort of a big brother figure to her)
[02:25] Happy: (A lot nicer than Cessie's big brother though :P)
[02:26] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, well he lost his ability to feel when he went undead >.>)
[02:27] Murska: Aegnor'll just sit there, Simone's probably still clinging to his arm.
[02:28] Happy: "It's easy to forget that she's just a child."
[02:28] Murska: 'She's been through so much.'
[02:28] Shadowcaller: Ceiise tries to cover a yawn with her hand
[02:28] Shadowcaller: *cessie
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "Poor girl… her whole home town."
[02:31] Happy: "And every time it kills, it grows stronger. We thought we'd defeated it."
[02:32] Murska: 'Not to mention this cultist guy…' Aegnor falls silent.
[02:32] Shadowcaller: There is a shaking sound…
[02:33] Happy: O.o
[02:33] Shadowcaller: Its not from Aegnors contact stone, but from Simones
[02:34] Murska: Aegnor looks up from his hands, instantly alert. 'Should we answer?' He says quietly.
[02:34] Happy: Simone is wakened by it, and takes it out…. then, as if it burned her hand, drops it to the richly carpetted floor.
[02:35] Shadowcaller: An illusion of a person you know under the name "Nephlim" shows up
[02:35] Shadowcaller: "Alegias? Are you there?"
[02:35] Happy: (Cessie should make an illusion of him…)
[02:36] Happy: (Alegias)
[02:36] Murska: (Heh.)
[02:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie (whisper): "What should we do? A illusion?"
[02:37] Murska: Aegnor nods.
[02:37] Happy: (Cast it on Aegnor… he can act well enough )
[02:39] Shadowcaller: She casts it on Aegnor, since she never seen Alegias face, he is hooded as they saw him during the battle.
[02:39] Murska: (BTW, SC… Insanowar any time soon?)
[02:39] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, tomorrow.)
[02:40] Murska: He motions for the others to move away.
[02:40] Happy: Hope and Simone do so.
[02:40] Shadowcaller: Cessie moves away
[02:40] Murska: Then he brings out Alegias's spirit knife in his left hand while taking the stone with his right.
[02:41] Shadowcaller: "Alegias?"
[02:41] Murska: 'What now?' Aegnor mimics his voice the best he can.
[02:42] Shadowcaller: "What happend? What gods are dead?"
[02:43] Murska: 'Can't you see I'm a bit busy? This one's some beauty goddess, and she's trying to escape.'
[02:44] Shadowcaller: "Very well, I will leave you alone then…"
[02:44] Murska: 'Ask again in a while. She's getting away.'
[02:44] Shadowcaller: The illusion dissapears
[02:45] Murska: Aegnor pockets the stone. 'Now let's plan quickly before he contacts again.'
[02:46] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "We must ask for whatever plan they have… how much did Alegias really know?"
[02:46] Shadowcaller: "He told him a false name too…"
[02:46] Happy: "Look at his stuff. Maybe it tell you something," Simone says.
[02:47] Murska: 'Also, he asked which gods have been killed…'
[02:48] Shadowcaller: "Any ideas?"
[02:48] Happy: Simone sets the golden rod on the low table in the center of the room.
[02:49] Happy: Hope: "Does Helena know the names of the gods who were killed?"
[02:49] Murska: (Or Helios, the book, whatever)
[02:50] Happy: Simone isn't speaking to him at the moment…
[02:51] Murska: (I don't know how exactly the book works, anyway. Portable library, so doesn't have information about current events, but does have a GPS?)
[02:52] Shadowcaller: (Its a intelligent book.)
[02:52] Shadowcaller: *an
[02:53] Shadowcaller: "WOuld Alegias know the names of the gods he kills anyway?"
[02:53] Happy: Well Hope doesn't want to ask Kuori, as he's not really good with sneaky plans.
[02:54] Happy: "He'd at least know something about them. What their realms were like. But then, Aegnor could probably make that up."
[02:54] Murska: 'Exactly. More importantly, what and how do we want to dig up?'
[02:55] Shadowcaller: "You can demand more information if you are going to do your job?"
[02:56] Murska: 'I'll have to be careful not to break character.'
[02:56] Happy: "He seemed to care more about the thrill of killing than any plan. But eventually, he'd have to go back to the mortal world, right? To give the blade to someone?"
[02:56] Shadowcaller: "Well, its kind of wierd talking to you this way…"
[02:57] Shadowcaller: "I don't think he needed, Artaris said the worm had gained the energy of two gods…"
[02:58] Happy: "So maybe they didn't plan on haivng Alegias come back. Or maybe he suspects that anyway."
[02:59] Happy: (Bah… that doesn't sound like something Hope would have thought of saying.)
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "So, maye you should demand a exit strategy? He did seem to leave alive at least…"
[03:01] Murska: 'He honestly thought he could challenge all of the gods… do you think he'd be worried about his own safety?'
[03:01] Happy: "Not his safety. But maybe his own interests. It might get boring here for him."
[03:01] Shadowcaller: "Well, maybe he just planned to kill a few of them and then escape?"
[03:02] Murska: 'He claimed he was gunning for Artaris…'
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "He also said he was looking for someone badly protected and powerful."
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "He asked us about a good god to kill remember? "Easy prey…" Cessie dhudders a bit
[03:03] Shadowcaller: *shudders
[03:04] Happy: "Like Zubera would have been, if we hadn't gotten there in time."
[03:04] Murska: Aegnor takes a few steps towards the corridor away from the suite. 'I shouldn't be in the same place when he returns, though…'
[03:05] Shadowcaller: The stone starts to shake again
[03:05] Murska: 'Here we go again.' Aegnor steps into the corridor, leaving the others behind.
[03:06] Shadowcaller: The illusion shows up again "Are you still busy?"
[03:07] Murska: Aegnor responds with an angry tone. 'She escaped into some stone. Now what was it you wanted?'
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "I felt two gods dead, but with the time you spent… they must be very powerful by now."
[03:09] Murska: 'Hmpf. This one didn't have anything. I was… distracted in another one's realm. The people from Kyou seem to have followed me here.'
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "Really? Did you… deal with them?"
[03:10] Murska: 'We clashed, but it proved… inconclusive.'
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "Is the elf dead? The wizard?"
[03:12] Murska: 'I got a hit in at the elf. What I've seen, he's probably dead. The wizard should be at least out of it, but the guy with the armguard did something… tossed me out of there.'
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "The gods may be badly organized, but I'm suprised that they haven't tried to hunt you down yet… is there something amiss?"
[03:15] Murska: 'Hmpf. They're scared, this one ran right when I entered.'
[03:17] Shadowcaller: "Very well… I suggest that you get out of there now, the gods won't be such easy prey anymore when the time have run out."
[03:18] Murska: 'How much time?'
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "A few mere moments, you should be thinking at going back."
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "Your payment is waiting for you after all."
[03:20] Murska: 'Where do we meet then? Has the city fallen into chaos since I was gone?'
[03:22] Shadowcaller: "The city have been thrown into choas yes, but we aren't going to met anywhere. Go to Kuraz, at the entrance of the great temple is a stone, under it is your payment."
[03:23] Murska: 'I can keep the blade, right? I've grown fond of it…'
[03:25] Shadowcaller: "You can keep the blade yes, I have no further use of it anyway, you have killed a lot more with it then I ever did."
[03:26] Murska: 'Out of curiosity… what're you gaining of this anyway?'
[03:27] Shadowcaller: "Power, its as simple as that really… everything you kill is absorbed."
[03:30] Shadowcaller: "The sword is simpel tool, nothing else."
[03:31] Shadowcaller: "Is that good enough for an answer?"
[03:31] Murska: sec
[03:32] Murska: 'Power. Yes… power for who? Not anyone I've had… dealings with, before, I hope?'
[03:33] Shadowcaller: "No, of course not, let just say that its a very private person that rarely socialize with anyone else."
[03:33] Shadowcaller: "Few have met him."
[03:37] Shadowcaller: "Anyhow, you need to escape that realm as soon as possibe."
[03:40] Murska: 'I can take on at least one more. I'll handle myself. And may our possible future dealings be as… fortuitious.'
[03:41] Shadowcaller: "Just don't go and kill the gods we have agreed on not to kill…"
[03:42] Murska: 'Eh. Which ones were those again?'
[03:42] Shadowcaller: "…I told you that right before the start you even.. what is this?"
[03:44] Murska: 'Eh, all the gods are the same to me. I don't even know the names of the ones I've killed. You need to describe the realms if you want me to know.'
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "you wrote them down remember?"
[03:49] Murska: 'So I'm supposed to go around asking the god's names before I kill them? They're hard enough to catch as it is…'
[03:49] Murska: 'I mean, that one… Helios? The elf told me to go kill him instead. The first time I even heard a name since I got here.'
[03:52] Shadowcaller: "…How did we met?"
[03:54] Murska: 'You showed…' Aegnor leaps sideways in the corridor and switches the dagger to his right hand while starting to put the stone into his pocket. 'They found me.' as he hides it.
[03:55] Shadowcaller: The illusion dissapears
[03:55] Murska: Aegnor gets up and walks back into the room with the others.
[03:56] Shadowcaller: (I need to sleep now…)
[03:56] Happy: "We need to go back and search the body," Simone says.
[03:56] Murska: (okay.)
[03:56] Happy: (yeah, me too)
[03:57] Shadowcaller: (Good Night.)
[03:57] Murska: Aegnor recounts the conversation exactly to everyone.
[03:57] Murska: night
