Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 25675): Fri Jun 26 19:15:17 2009
[19:15] Happy: IF
[19:15] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[19:16] Murska: k
[19:17] Happy: So, we'll skip the part where Simone tells the rest of the party about her nightmare
[19:17] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[19:17] Happy: She doesn't know that Aegnor blames himself, does she?
[19:18] Murska: No.
[19:18] Shadowcaller: (Cessie don't really see why he would blame himself.)
[19:18] Murska: (He's stupid like that.)
[19:18] Happy: (Indeed)
[19:19] Happy: also, google survivor's guilt
[19:19] Murska: I have, some years ago.
[19:19] Murska: I also read about stockholm syndrome and other such things.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: (I hope Simone is not that effected by it?)
[19:21] Happy: (No, right now she's deep in intellectualization.)
[19:24] Shadowcaller: Well, Helios will show up soon enough
[19:26] Shadowcaller: (Unless you want to do anything else during that time.)
[19:26] Shadowcaller: (Any met ups and such…)
[19:26] Happy: (Not really)
[19:26] Happy: Helena will turn up when Helios does.
[19:27] Shadowcaller: Where is the party anyway? How long was the time skip?
[19:28] Happy: Long enough for everyone to sleep. We're in the sitting room or the garden, I imagine.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: (everyone is at the same place then? Cessie would be quite worried of Arik by now.)
[19:30] Happy: Yeah, and everyone else would be… not quite so concerned
[19:32] Shadowcaller: Helios, sourrounded by layers and layers of pitchblack shadows appears before you
[19:33] Shadowcaller: "Greetings, it would appear we have need of you yet again."
[19:34] Happy: "Oh?"
[19:35] Shadowcaller: "You have been summoned before the gods as witnesses, take extrem caution, this is not a game mortals should be playing…"
[19:35] Murska: 'Okay.'
[19:36] Happy: "This not a game to us."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: "It is to them."
[19:37] Happy: "And to you?"
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure what I will call it really, not that it will matter to you. I trust Helena can take you there? The meeting will take place as soon everyone have arrived. I advice you now to keep them waiting, you need to make a *very* good impression now, you will be at their mercy now…"
[19:41] Happy: *not ?
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (Where?)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, saw it.)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (Its *not.)
[19:42] Happy: (thought so.)
[19:42] Happy: "We ready to go now." Simone says.
[19:43] Shadowcaller: (Is Helena there?)
[19:43] Happy: (Yes)
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "Tell her that, not me, I need to talk with Artaris first."
[19:44] Happy: Helena looks to see if everyone is ready.
[19:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie is
[19:46] Murska: Yeah.
[19:46] Murska: Naib and Aegnor are.
[19:46] Happy: Hope and Simone are. So Helena takes them.
[19:51] Shadowcaller: Aegnor, Cessie and Simone will regonize this place as the waiting room they were in before they could enter Artaris "throne room". THe others will see a great hall with four double gated exits in every direction. In the middle is the fountain with the angel-like statues with hoods and around it are four white benches.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: A servant they recognize as Khan (the one who led the Allyria trial) is there to met them. "We met again, I specially requested to be the one to met you once I heard about all this actually…"
[19:55] Happy: Simone curtseys.
[19:56] Murska: brb
[19:56] Shadowcaller: Cessie bows, almost in the same manner as Khan do in response (but not as elegant.)
[20:00] Happy: "Can you tell us what they wanting to ask us about?" Simone asks.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "Well, you are here as witnesses, from what I have been told, you are going to be talking about the worm and your battle with Alegias."
[20:08] Murska: back
[20:09] Happy: "Did you have a specific reason to be the one to meet with us?" Hope asks.
[20:12] Shadowcaller: "Well, someone needed to fill you up on why exactly you are here and what you are going to do. It could have been have been anyone, but I wanted to."
[20:13] Murska: 'Thank you for it.'
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "Oh, don't worry about it. I'm only doing my duty. Anyhow this is how the trial is going to work. You are going to be called in, one by one and asked a number of questions by the gods. There isn't much else to it really, I hope it won't take up too much of your time."
[20:15] Happy: "We can't… stay together?" Simone asks, a little anxiously.
[20:16] Shadowcaller: "I'm afraid you need to do it invidually, but don't worry, I don't think they will ask you that many question."
[20:16] Happy: "I having a lot to tell though."
[20:18] Murska: 'So we're being treated as witnesses… nobody's on trial, though, I assume?'
[20:19] Shadowcaller: "Well, I'm afraid you have to endure that, just tell them what you want and get out of there as quick as possible. Some of them can be a bit unplesant."
[20:19] Murska: 'I've noticed.'
[20:19] Shadowcaller: "No of course not, you are only there to tell you what you saw, nothing else."
[20:20] Shadowcaller: "I'm not really supposed to tell you this but… I would rather avoid the truth then lying, they would sense it directly if you do."
[20:20] Happy: "Then I should go first," Simone says, looking at Aegnor. "I think after I say what I see, they might having more questions for the others."
[20:22] Murska: 'Sure. I trust you'll do fine.'
[20:23] Shadowcaller: "Good luck then, try to protest if they go too hard on you."
[20:23] Happy: (Give each of us a god to control? :) )
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (Um, right.)
[20:24] Shadowcaller: (Well, I let you make up your own lesser god then:P)
[20:24] Murska: (Halp!)
[20:24] Shadowcaller: (Happy can take Helena I guess.)
[20:24] Murska: (Do I have to?)
[20:24] Murska: (I can be random voices from the crowd. :P)
[20:24] Shadowcaller: (There is no crowd.)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (Everyone asks questions, but one at the time.)
[20:25] Happy: (Murska can be the God of Games)
[20:25] Happy: (or Music)
[20:25] Murska: (Games and partying? :P)
[20:25] Murska: (No god of music, that'd be an important character)
[20:25] Murska: (;))
[20:25] Happy: (The god of games and scheming :) )
[20:26] Murska: (:P)
[20:28] Shadowcaller: (Err.. so?)
[20:29] Murska: (…so.)
[20:29] Happy: (You're the GM. We aren't going to go barging in until we're asked for, you know)
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I just wanted to check what gods you wanted.)
[20:30] Happy: (Murska's gods name is Invicta. Latin for unvanquished)
[20:30] Murska: ('kay… >.>)
[20:30] Murska: (:P)
[20:31] Happy: (Or you can name him :P )
[20:31] Happy: (Are any of the spirits here? Or is it just Risen Ones?)
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (WHy?)
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (Do you ask that is.)
[20:33] Happy: (Curious)
[20:33] Shadowcaller: (Nope, only gods.)
[20:36] Happy: (do you want me to be more than one god?)
[20:36] Shadowcaller: (If you want to.)
[20:37] Shadowcaller: (Less talking to myself:P)
[20:37] Happy: (Okay. going to assign me any of the gods we already know, or should i just make them up as we go along?)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, most of the gods we know are already scripted, so make up some of them. I guess you can be Zubera if you want too thought.)
[20:39] Happy: (kay)
[20:41] Shadowcaller: A white light consumes Simone and she finds herself before a enormous assembly hall but instead of chairs there are small platforms with fences that all are floating over a seeimglt endless endless hole. She is also in a platform that appears to be where a podioum would have been in a normal assembly hall.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: (Whats Simones last name?)
[20:46] Happy: (based on Isandwana I guess. She wouldn't have a familial name)
[20:46] Happy: Simone Isandwan ?
[20:46] Happy: Isanwani?
[20:48] Happy: *Isandwani
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "Simone Isandwani, you have been called here today to witness about the man know as "Alegias Naden" and the creature that is called "the whispering worm"." She reconizes the voice as Artari's but she can't see him anywhere (not that she would known how he looked like.)
[20:49] Happy: "Yes Sir."
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "You can begin telling this gathering what you know, then they may ask you a number of questions after that. Do you understand?"
[20:50] Happy: "Yes Sir. I start with what happen in Kuraz."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: "Exhuse me." A voice coming says, coming from a nearby platform. "Would it not be easier to read her mind? We can never be sure if this mortal tells us the truth."
[20:53] Happy: Simone looks at that platform to see who is talking.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: Its not someone she knows, the figure is drapped in a blue-black cloak with white hair and striking eyes.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: (Also, you are free to respond with your own gods.)
[20:55] Happy: "What your name, please?" Simone asks.
[20:56] Shadowcaller: The god is silent for a while before answering "Tirus, god of storms."
[20:57] Happy: Simone curtseys in introduction. "Then Tirus, you should know is my home the worm destroyed. Why I lie about that?"
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, but that dosen't mean you won't do it."
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "Mortals are strange…"
[20:59] Happy: Helena: "The girl can be trusted."
[21:00] Shadowcaller: "Says the elf…" Comes another voice. (Hevos, god of humans.)
[21:01] Happy: Simone: "Artaris can read my mind, if he want."
[21:02] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "I trust the girl to tell the truth, if she lies, we will know. Now let us not get this over with, Simone tell us what you have seen."
[21:03] Happy: Simone starts with what happened at Kuraz, and then the battle with Alegias, and then the nightmare of the worm, repeating most of what was said with no errors.
[21:05] Shadowcaller: There is a long silence after she is done then Artaris asks "Are you done then Simone?"
[21:05] Happy: "Yes, Sir."
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "You have been very brave to tell us all this… I would like to let you go right now, but I think there are some that have questions for you."
[21:07] Happy: "I understand, Sir. I having questions too."
[21:10] Shadowcaller: Deveros (god of death): "This is not a place for mortals to ask questions… I do have a question for the girl however."
[21:11] Shadowcaller: "Would you describe how the god you protected, Zubera, acted when this Alegias attacked?"
[21:12] Happy: "She give me a mask to use."
[21:12] Happy: "And she tell us about his magic."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "Anything else?"
[21:14] Happy: "Not that I see, Sir. She not fight."
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "So, what you are telling us is that a god can only watch as a mortal is trying to kill her?"
[21:15] Happy: (Zubera would probalby be getting quite angry, but I don't know what she was doing. So maybe SC should play her)
[21:16] Happy: "I not know."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "Earlier, when we asked her, she described it as "a great weakness came over her" do you know anything about that mortal?"
[21:18] Happy: "I not know about magic. But maybe that how other two gods died so easily."
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "And that is exactly my suspicion to, we have already confirmed that this sword is connected to this worm and I think it makes us weak, just by being close. So great is the power of this creature, how could we be safe when mere mortals with such a sword can kill us?"
[21:20] Shadowcaller: *too
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "Maybe this is not the only sword the worm made, maybe there are others, handed out to mortals as we speak, and if they can come here anytime they want, how could we be safe?"
[21:23] Murska: Another voice. 'Bah. Are we not gods? Should we cower here in fear of the mortals?'
[21:24] Happy: "I not think you should close realms completely. They not have to come any time they want. Just make it so gods have to say okay first." /Simone
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "We already have that system set up mortal, but apperently, someone did wish to have this Alegias here."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "We have a traitor among our numbers…"
[21:26] Happy: "But I sure the gods he kill not want him. Can you make walls between your homes?"
[21:26] Shadowcaller: There is gods talking all over right now.
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "So you are saying we should limit our acess to each other rather then to you? I don't even see why we should allow mortals here in the first place. Two gods are dead by a worm-blessed mortals hand, is not that enough reason to fear I ask you?"
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "Mortals are nothing, it is the worm we should fear and this worm have mortals as allies."
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "As well as gods…"
[21:29] Happy: "If other gods help worm, then maybe to trust other gods not so good."
[21:29] Happy: "What is the worm?"
[21:30] Shadowcaller: Helios: "The worm is a legion, Simone, now if you re done talking Deveros, maybe you should let the one who knows what this is all about speak?"
[21:31] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "First I need to ask everyone, what exactly is the reason we should allow mortals here in the first place?"
[21:32] Happy: Zubera: "Because the mortals were able to protect me when I could not protect myself."
[21:33] Happy: Another voice: "They don't belong here. This is the realm of the gods, not the mortals."
[21:34] Happy: Another: "But we can't ignore that we need them. I have not been so weak since my ascension as I was when the gate was closed."
[21:34] Murska: 'The gate THEY opened.'
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "The gate they closed."
[21:35] Murska: Another: 'And closed.'
[21:36] Happy: Helena: "Did the mortals have divine help to close the gate?"
[21:37] Shadowcaller: Devoros: "From what I have been told it was the worm of wizards, not gods."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *work
[21:37] Happy: Helena: "But we know at least one god knew it was closing ahead of time."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "Besides, mortals should learn their place, they do not bellong here."
[21:38] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Yes we do…"
[21:38] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "What exactly are you talking about?"
[21:39] Murska: 'Our realms and the mortal ones are just a part of the same world. If we limit mortals' access here, we shouldn't access theirs either.'
[21:39] Murska: Another voice: 'We're gods, they're just mortals. Why should we limit ourselves?'
[21:40] Happy: Simone: "If everyone stop talking, I tell you what I know about that."
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "We hardly need to manifest in their world anyway."
[21:40] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Speak then Simone."
[21:41] Happy: As soon as the other voices fall silent, Simone tells about the night she was drugged and what Helios told her the next day about the gate.
[21:43] Happy: She watches Helios as she speaks
[21:43] Happy: Even though he's wreathed in Shadows :P
[21:43] Shadowcaller: His eyes follows her closely
[21:44] Shadowcaller: There is a lot of mumble after she is done speaking, other gods looking at Helios.
[21:45] Happy: "I guess he not tell any of you then?" Simone says.
[21:45] Happy: (Hmm… wonder if he's being framed?)
[21:46] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Some of this is new, yes."
[21:46] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "This is an outrage! How dare he hiding away information like that!"
[21:48] Shadowcaller: Tirus: "Many of my followers are dead beacuse of this, all the prisoners of Artaris are out creating chaos… this might be one of the worst disasters that have happend… and you knew this?"
[21:49] Shadowcaller: (feel free to add…)
[21:51] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Its all for the greater good, I can assure you that."
[21:51] Happy: Simone: "What greater good is that?"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "The good of us all of course."
[21:54] Happy: Helena: "Care to explain? It was my people who sacrificed their lives to open the gate again." *extremely regal tone*
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "There are traitors in this very hall, you can hardly expect me to reveal such risky information in the middle of this assembly do you?"
[21:55] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "You are the only traitor here…"
[22:01] Happy: Simone to Helios /Or maybe you tell just me?/
[22:01] Shadowcaller: /After the meeting Simone./
[22:02] Happy: /I want to talk to Helia again too/
[22:03] Shadowcaller: /Of course, just be patient./
[22:03] Happy: Simone: "I have another question. When did gods know that Isandwana was destroyed?"
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "There must have been something coulding our vision, from what i have have learned from my worshippers, many mortals knew if weeks before we do. Helios was the first that must have learned of it."
[22:07] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Yet more evidence, I find it clear that helios have betrayed us, he is the one that let Alegias inside, he was the one who are ultimatly responslible for all the ones that have died since the gate closed!"
[22:07] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Whatever you say…"
[22:09] Happy: Simone: "What about the letter Alegias have?"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: There is a lot chattering, many of the gods appears to agree with Norhold.
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Order! We need to have order! This is what this gatheringis about."
[22:12] Shadowcaller: *gathering
[22:13] Shadowcaller: But the assembly seems to be out of control, there is still a lot of arguing going on.
[22:13] Happy: Simone: /I still angry at you. But I not think you work with worm./
[22:15] Shadowcaller: /How flattering, you are welcome to tell that to them… if this go the wrong way…"
[22:16] Shadowcaller: Artaris (in a much lower voice): "I think you can leave now if you wish…"
[22:16] Happy: /It not evidence./ *mental shrug*
[22:16] Happy: /I think you probably can defend yourself just fine./
[22:17] Shadowcaller: /Hopefully I will, but I might be stuck here for a while either way…"
[22:19] Happy: /If I wrong, and you did help worm, I will kill you./ And Simone turns to leave.
[22:20] Shadowcaller: /I doubt Kuori and Norhold will leave much of me left to kill…/
[22:21] Shadowcaller: Simone is suddenly back at the party
[22:21] Shadowcaller: She can almost still hear the gods mumbeling in her ears
[22:23] Happy: She collapses into a seat next to Aegnor.
[22:23] Murska: 'How was it?'
[22:23] Happy: "They all angry at Helios now. I think maybe someone try and frame him."
[22:24] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Framing him?"
[22:25] Happy: "It easy to do. He lie so much and keep so many secrets. So when gods killed, it look like he the one who help worm."
[22:26] Happy: "But I think if he would do that, he be much sneakier than this."
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "Any idea who would be framing him?"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "Was there someone there?"
[22:29] Happy: Simone describes everyone who was there that she can remember.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "I can't really say I'm familiar with any of them… I didn't even know humans had a god."
[22:39] Happy: "I guess one of you is next."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: sec
[22:48] Happy: poke
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Khen: "Aegnor is next."
[22:50] Murska: Aegnor stands up. 'Right.'
[22:51] Happy: Simone gives him a weak smile.
[22:51] Murska: He smiles back reassuringly.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: Light consumes Aegnor and he finds himself at the same place as Simone was a few moments ago
[22:52] Murska: He observes the beings in the room.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: (Do I need to describe them all?:P)
[22:53] Murska: (No.)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: He reognizes some of them such as Helena, Zubera, Helios, Norhold and Nega. The rest of them are unkown to him.
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (Whats Aegnors last name?)
[22:57] Murska: (No idea…)
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (The gods should know >.>)
[22:59] Murska: (>.>)
[22:59] Happy: Amarond
[22:59] Murska: (Well, Aegnor doesn't remember it himself.)
[22:59] Murska: (So sure.)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor Amarond you have been called here to tell us about the worm and Alegias."
[23:01] Murska: He bows slightly to acknowledge this.
[23:03] Shadowcaller: "An elf?"
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Don't…"
[23:03] Murska: 'Yes.'
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Tell us about the worm, from what i have heard, you know a great deal about this creature."
[23:05] Murska: 'The worm… All right, I'll begin with it's history.'
[23:06] Murska: 'As you should know, the elves retreated from the warring to the Trees created from their forests. The tree I was born on was one of the ones which took in human refugees and gave them a place to live.'
[23:07] Murska: 'A group of these human refugees then summoned the worm, which was apparently an established legion on the lower plane, onto the tree aswell.'
[23:07] Murska: 'Keep in mind this is an elven version of the history and therefore I cannot guarantee it's full accuracy for I was not alive at the time.'
[23:08] Murska: 'It quickly decimated the elven communities who fled farther from it's advance. They slowed it down during the years but couldn't stop it, and the humans moved in on the lands the elves had vacated.'
[23:10] Murska: 'Finally the elves decided they had to flee even farther. I was never told where exactly, just that it was an even higher plane. Some elves, like my parents, stayed, and the worm and the cultists worshipping it hunted those down, along with slavers who often sold us to them. It started slowing down once it had less to eat, and entered a long slumber when the elves were practically extinct.'
[23:11] Murska: 'At around this point I and the small village I lived in was captured by some cultists. They fed us to it slowly so it would stay awake and gift them with power for longer, while they experimented on the rest of us, to what end I do not know.'
[23:12] Murska: 'Recently, an elf who had infiltrated the cultists(whose name I don't remember anymore but Aegnor states it here) managed to make them sacrifice humans to it for power instead, which started awakening it, since they were more plentifully available. It started slowly changing it's preferred race from elves to humans, the only Legion I've heard of to do that.'
[23:12] Shadowcaller: (Seos.)
[23:13] Murska: 'Then we fought it and defeated it's cultists and the undead army on the Tree, using a special ritual to drain it of power. We thought it was dead, mourned for our losses. Later on, we travelled to Kyou and apparently the worm followed us via a curse it had placed on me. I got rid of it in Isandwana, which the worm reached shortly after we left and destroyed.'
[23:14] Murska: Aegnor proceeds to describe the links between the weird cultists they met in Kyou and the worm.
[23:14] Murska: Also, he describes the appearances and methods of the worm, mentioning how Simone described it in the nightmare.
[23:16] Murska: (and that's all?)
[23:17] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I know >.>)
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "We became aware of the worm during the tree incident, I however didn't belive it was a threat after that and neither did any other I think. A full legion still alive after the war… its hard to belive."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Now that everyone have calmed down and Aegnor here have given the rest of you enough information to act upon it might be time to add a bit of my information to this."
[23:25] Happy: (hmph. wouldn't talk in front of Simone. Nooooo….)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "A intresting tale, but can we really belive everything this elf say?"
[23:26] Happy: (Shorter gods: Mortals suck!)
[23:26] Murska: 'I've notified you at the part of my story which might have inaccuracies. Otherwise, probably at least as much as they can trust you.'
[23:27] Happy: Helena: "Nothing in his story conflicts with what we already know. I can also tell you that I witnessed much of the recent battle at the Tree."
[23:27] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "Well, he is one of your people…"
[23:28] Happy: "I understand there are two humans left to testify who also witnessed the same events."
[23:28] Murska: 'I don't believe there's any chance of me in any way being in the worms' side. For example, it almost killed me yesterday.'
[23:28] Murska: Worm's*
[23:28] Happy: "As did one of the servants of Artaris, one of Norhold's, and one of Nega's."
[23:28] Shadowcaller: Nega: "that is very true."
[23:29] Happy: "As well as the Chosen Ones of Kuori and Zubera."
[23:29] Happy: "The battle at Caster's Tower is one of the best witnessed events imaginable. Now can we stop with the foolish aspersions?"
[23:31] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Indeed, after all, it was I who gave you that book."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "WIth the ritual nessecary to weaken the worm."
[23:32] Murska: (Well… :P)
[23:32] Murska: ('gave')
[23:32] Shadowcaller: (He gave it to Noel >.>)
[23:34] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Is there any proof of this besides from your words Helios? Elf, did Helios give you a book with such a ritual?"
[23:35] Murska: 'Not me. I'm not a wizard.'
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Did he give it to anyone else as far as you know?"
[23:37] Murska: (Did anyone mention that anyway… >.>)
[23:37] Happy: (Cessie probably knew)
[23:38] Happy: (Aegnor woudl have been busy with the physical defences. I doubt he paid any attention at all to the ritual stuff)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (Well, Noel never told her.)
[23:38] Happy: (That's because you never told me that's where he got it… >.> )
[23:39] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, but I figured that he would not tell it anyway.)
[23:39] Murska: 'I was organizing the physical battle, I suggest you repeat the question to one of the remaining witnesses, namely Cessie.'
[23:40] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Could you describe your little group?"
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I don't see what that have to do with this…"
[23:41] Murska: 'Hmm. Well, you'd need to define who exactly you mean.'
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "The ones that were presence at the battle."
[23:43] Murska: 'At the tower? Well, at that point our group consisted of mostly me, Cessie and Hope, who was called Happy at that time. Promise also joined us shortly before the battle, although I'm not sure if he'd have counted as a part of it back then. He was called Wolfbane at that point.'
[23:44] Happy: (Caster, Noel, the Minster refugees, the Servants)
[23:44] Murska: ('little' group, Aegnor took it to mean people who were part of their travelling group.)
[23:45] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Do all of this have a point Norhold? I think you could satisfy your curiosity about their group after the trial."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Norhold ignores Helios: "One of my servant were present at the battle, he described it as a heroic effort."
[23:47] Happy: (all of those servants are dead now, aren't they?)
[23:48] Murska: (Didn't Norhold's survive with mass wounds or something?)
[23:48] Shadowcaller: (He did.)
[23:51] Happy: (poke)
[23:52] Murska: (Am I supposed to say something?)
[23:52] Murska: ('Yeah, we're heroes.')
[23:52] Shadowcaller: (Not really.)
[23:52] Shadowcaller: (Sorry about that.)
[23:54] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Anyway, what I would like to know is what happend after the tree? How were you sure that the worm was dead?"
[23:59] Happy: (poke)
[00:02] Murska: 'We couldn't be sure… I guess we falsely assumed so because we had eradicated all parts of the head cultist's worms, drained the worm itself and killed the whole of it's army along with all cultists who didn't surrender.'
[00:02] Murska: (I don't even remember why we left for Kyou, does anyone else?)
[00:02] Happy: (Kuori and Zubera sent their chosen ones on conflicting missions there)
[00:04] Shadowcaller: (Yeah…)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (Hm, sec.)

Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 11808): Sat Jun 27 00:10:55 2009
[00:10] Shadowcaller: *poke*
[00:11] Happy: (aren't we waiting for you, SC?)
[00:11] Shadowcaller: (We are, just making sure the chat stays.)
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "How did you travel all the way to Kyou?"
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "And why did you and this Cessie follow exactly?"
[00:14] Murska: 'By airship, and of course we would follow our friends. It's not like we had anywhere else to go.'
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "Quite remakable… however, what reason did you come to kyou in the first place? Why did kuori send Hope and this Wolfbane there?"
[00:20] Murska: 'Wouldn't this be a question better asked from the respectable gods themselves?'
[00:21] Shadowcaller: "I want to know your version of it. Kuori is not here…"
[00:22] Happy: (he's not? O.o)
[00:22] Murska: (Let's see, I'll have to go remind myself of the reasons… >.>)
[00:22] Happy: (Kuori asked Hpe to kill Zubera
[00:23] Happy: (Zubera called Promise to protect her in order to get back his brother's soul)
[00:23] Murska: 'Well, Kuori asked Hope to kill Zubera, while Zubera asked Promise to protect her.'
[00:24] Shadowcaller: "Very well, was you a part of any of this?"
[00:25] Murska: 'Not really. I don't follow a god.'
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "But you were aware of both their goals then?"
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "Despite the fact that they were completly opposite of each other?"
[00:27] Murska: (Yes?)
[00:28] Happy: (Hope kept her mission secret for a while. I think she told Ai first, and then Promise.)
[00:30] Murska: (What'd Zubera call Promise to protect her against in the first place then?)
[00:30] Happy: (Kuori's Chosen One)
[00:30] Happy: (And why isn't Kuori here?)
[00:31] Murska: 'Well, I was unaware of Hope's mission at first. Of course, it wouldn't have changed my decision to go anyway.'
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "Tell me about the dwarves."
[00:32] Murska: '…dwarves?'
[00:33] Shadowcaller: "Yes, there were a number of dwarves that sought my services, apperently there was an elf who killed a large number of them…"
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "Did you encounter any dwarves at the tree?"
[00:35] Murska: '…incidentally, a bunch of them attacked me in a town, although they neglected to inform me why, trying to capture me, apparently for something I had done although I have no recollection of doing anything against dwarves.'
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "Very odd… I need to speak with them again… I'm done asking for now."
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I have nothing to add, besides the fact that Norhold have asked a number of questions with no connection at all to the trial…"
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Artais: "Is there any other god who wishes to ask Aegnor something?"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: (And why are Murska shown as offline? o.O)
[00:40] Happy: (nobody knows)
[00:41] Happy: Helena: "Is there anything you wish to ask, Aegnor?"
[00:41] Murska: (The trial? :P)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "Are we letting mortals ask us questions now?"
[00:42] Happy: (When else would you have all the gods assembled?)
[00:42] Murska: 'Yes.'
[00:42] Murska: (He was told to answer the gods' questions… :P)
[00:42] Murska: 'To both those questions, in fact.'
[00:43] Shadowcaller: Hevos. "Do not think you can order us around…"
[00:43] Murska: 'I believe I was ordered to truthfully answer all gods' questions.'
[00:43] Murska: 'Anyway, I'd like to hear, prefarably in order and civilly, the arguments for both sides in the debate of closing the realms.'
[00:45] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "Well, we need better protection of course. Mortals have nothing in our realm to do."
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "We need to keep a close line between what is divine and whats not. There are already mortals who think they are our equals."
[00:47] Happy: Helena: "I believe it would isolate us too much from the mortals that give us their worship and our strength."
[00:47] Happy: (yeah, like Simone…)
[00:48] Murska: 'Do you know exactly what all it would affect?'
[00:48] Murska: 'Like ascension…'
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "Besides, Artaris already follows most of these rules, and he is the strongest god of us all."
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "I do not keep mortals from my realm however… and i think thats what the argument was about correct?"
[00:50] Murska: Invictus(?): 'If the gods isolate themselves, how long until their followers start worshipping the beings they do see instead?'
[00:51] Happy: "Kami worship is on the rise." /random
[00:52] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "Artaris have never shown himself to mortals, or us for that matter… I do not see what the problem is."
[00:53] Happy: Zubera: Each god can make his or her own choice on that. I prefer to keep a close relationship with my followers.
[00:53] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "The kami… they are as primitive as they are cruel. The mortals would never worship them."
[00:53] Happy: (very close in the case of facestealing >.>)
[00:53] Murska: Invictus: 'They have before.'
[00:54] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I suspect the kami will go on another rampage soon enough…"
[00:54] Happy: "They already are worshipping then. They started doing so in fear when the gates were closed and the spirits were mad, in hopes of appeasing them. If the gods disappear, what began in fear might continue in earnest."
[00:54] Murska: Aegnor: 'Now you're giving me arguments about why it could or couldn't be done.'
[00:55] Happy: (Ask where Kuori is…)
[00:55] Murska: (Later.)
[00:55] Happy: (:P)
[00:56] Shadowcaller: Vhees: "Gods and kami can be linked, there is no reason to feel threatened by them. I am deeply connected to many of the great sprits…"
[00:57] Shadowcaller: "Or well I was, but in any case, it can be done."
[00:57] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "We should show the spirits who is in charge…"
[00:58] Happy: Helena: "The spirits are allies to my people."
[00:59] Murska: Aegnor: 'I asked arguments for either sides on why WOULD it be done.'
[01:00] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "There is also the fact that the greater gods are using this freedom to keep their supermacy… Its not that I am asking a total retreat from the mortal realm, I just want to keep the connections to it safer in the future."
[01:02] Murska: (No greater god objections?)
[01:02] Shadowcaller: (The fact I hate talking to myself >.>)
[01:02] Happy: (who are the greater gods?)
[01:02] Shadowcaller: (Zubera is one.)
[01:03] Happy: (She is? I thought she was rather weak. She couldn't even manifest recently)
[01:03] Shadowcaller: (Well, she just recovered.)
[01:03] Happy: (Artaris, Kuori, Norhold, Zubera, Helios, Nega… any others?)
[01:03] Shadowcaller: (She is at the limit so to speak.)
[01:03] Shadowcaller: (The weakest of the greater gods.)
[01:04] Shadowcaller: (Thats all of them yes.)
[01:04] Happy: Helena: "I would like to hear from each of the greater gods on this."
[01:05] Murska: 'Where is Kuori?'
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I don't really see why we should limit ourself just beacuse you can't get your message out…"
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Hunting the worm…"
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "He said he didn't have time for meetings when the enemy was out there."
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "I am neutral in this case, while I don't manifest or contact any other then my priests and my servants, I like to to able to have mortals in my realm."
[01:08] Shadowcaller: "But since this suggestion don't effect me very much, I will remain neutral."
[01:09] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "I see no reason at all I should limit the burning light beacuse you are afraid. The light will always triumph in the end, I will burn all those who walk the dark path."
[01:09] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Right…"
[01:11] Shadowcaller: Nega: "I make mortals happy, there is nothing wrong with that. I see anything that wants to prevent me from making them happy as very wrong."
[01:11] Murska: Aegnor: 'Jealousy should be no reason. And if it's fear for your safety, then why not do as Kuori and eradicate the Worm instead?'
[01:12] Shadowcaller: Helios: "He won't find it…"
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "It have grown considerable more intelligent since it was awoken."
[01:12] Murska: 'I did not mean his methods, but his course of action is better than hiding.'
[01:13] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "We aren't just hiding from this worm, there are other threats such as the spirits."
[01:14] Happy: (funny that the god of death is the most scared)
[01:14] Shadowcaller: (He got his reasons.)
[01:17] Shadowcaller: Norhold: "Once the worm is gone, I don't really see why we should fear the spirits."
[01:17] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "Even if they found out one of us were involved in closing the gate?"
[01:18] Shadowcaller: Hevos: "He got a point, they always take out their rage on everything."
[01:18] Murska: 'So you'd rather they took it out on the mortals you're supposed to help?'
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "We will protect them anyway we can of course, we can not be blamed for the spirits primitive nature."
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Vhees: "Primitive…?"
[01:23] Murska: 'Ha.' Aegnor is acting, using his expressions and movements to help his speech. 'So you're cowering from these supposedly 'primitive' beings in your realms, hoping that the mortals act as a buffer for their possible attacks, which I'm not very convinced upon anyway? Gods? And then you claim you're not to be blamed?'
[01:24] Shadowcaller: Helios: "This mortal make good points…"
[01:29] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "Two of us were just killed! Some of us can't even maifest to protect our followers, so this this suggestion would make no differance for them. Most of us can't battle hundreds of raging spirits you know. Everyone always go after the greater ones. I care for my followers very deeply, but I can't protect them all at once. We are being dominated by the greater gods, that more and more…
[01:30] Murska: 'So you'd rather not protect them at all? Or is your only reason for this the desire for limitations on the great gods, despite the suffering it could cause on the mortals?'
[01:30] Shadowcaller: are getting themselves involved in the affairs of mortals, controlling them, leading them away from us lesser ones that can't met them in power. Do you know how many gods that dies beacuse they have to few followers?"
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "All mortals gather around the greater ones, killing of us lesser since we can't do anything to match them, is that fair I ask?"
[01:32] Murska: 'So if the limitations were places, how would it attract followers to the smaller gods?'
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Everyone would be at equal grounds."
[01:32] Murska: 'They'd, as I said, start worshipping beings they can see.'
[01:33] Happy: (sounds like a conspiracy of a few smaller gods to help the worm and get limits on the greater)
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "We would still be able to reach them by our servants and priests, both which they would be able to see."
[01:34] Murska: 'And so they'd gradually start the worship of said servants and priests. Not at first, of course…'
[01:35] Shadowcaller: "Must I remind you that most of us never show ourself to mortals?"
[01:35] Murska: 'Exactly!'
[01:35] Murska: 'Does this correlate with the largest gods? Artaris doesn't.'
[01:36] Murska: 'So this advantage of yours that they're getting? Those who use it, go ahead, those who don't, their own fault.'
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "It would still be more fair, also, the more the gods start to involve themselves in the affrais of mortals, the more complications there will be."
[01:39] Shadowcaller: "War are constantly waged between Kuroi and Artaris for example, Norholds servants hunt down Helios worshippers wherever they find them."
[01:39] Murska: 'And what has the gods getting MORE involved got to do with this whole question of limiting them forcibly from getting involved whether they want to or not?'
[01:42] Shadowcaller: "It would most likely prevent many wars, such as Kuoris hunts, Zuberas facestaling, Norholds crusades, Helios constant scheming…"
[01:43] Happy: (who says this? Deveros still?)
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "And Negas scheming." He adds, almost in a whisper
[01:43] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[01:44] Murska: 'The gods themselves aren't waging those wars, right? I don't see how the limitation would prevent them then.'
[01:44] Murska: 'Except for Kuori.'
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (Zubera should be protesting right now:P)
[01:45] Murska: 'What you are trying to prevent is the essence of what mortals view gods as.'
[01:45] Murska: 'You might not have the correct viewpoint to see it, but Gods are Godly deeds, their actions affecting mortal lives. Not just churches, but actual power of what they do.'
[01:45] Happy: Zubera: "Do none of you believe that I've changed?!"
[01:46] Happy: (sorry, I'm not in her mindset)
[01:46] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "It was just a example…"
[01:46] Happy: (murska made me go look up economics and it broke mah brain)
[01:46] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[01:47] Murska: (Heh.)
[01:47] Murska: (I'm waiting for his response before launching my next argument)
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "And if a god is too weak to do that? Who helps the weak ones?"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "Its getting harder and harder for new gods to live…"
[01:48] Happy: Helena: "Shouldn't we help each other? Zubera and I have formed a partnership."
[01:49] Murska: 'Gods have existed for ages. They've changed, disappeared and ascended. If a god is too weak to be a god to mortals, they need to find strength, find a reason for mortals to believe in such a god.'
[01:50] Shadowcaller: Helios: "How amusing to see you lose an argument Deveros…"
[01:51] Murska: Aegnor stands up even straighter, with fiery voice: 'It is a detestable principle that we cannot grow and reach higher without lowering our neighbours or being lowered by them. Those that are satisfied with being on equal level with others lack the vision and determination to aspire for the betterment of all, and the rise of something new and truly powerful!'
[01:52] Murska: (The defense rests.)
[01:53] Happy: (applause!)
[01:54] Shadowcaller: Deveros: "That- that is a extremly cruel system, we don't live in a djungel where the strong will rule supreme. The greater ones should have a responsibility for us too. Should the king care nothing for the pesants? Should he let them starve to them just beacuse he have become more succesful then them?"
[01:55] Shadowcaller: Tirus: "Since when did this become a debate club?…"
[01:58] Murska: 'The strong should care for the weak, but limitations are not the way to do it. Limits block way for progress, for change and if we do not change, we WILL stagnate! Throughout history great leaders, nations, gods and forces have risen and fallen again. These events may have caused instability, even chaos and anarchy, but if we give in, if we give up freedom and liberty for stability and security..
[01:58] Murska: We will gain nothing, deserve none of those and lose them all.
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "So your saying that the gods should show no restrain? No limitations?"
[02:00] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I don't think he said that…"
[02:00] Happy: Helena: "We choose to work together, gods and mortals, towards a greater good for all."
[02:02] Happy: *should choose
[02:02] Murska: 'In the end, the world isn't a perfect image of abstract theorems. In practice, the world's stability lays, as it has thus far, on a basis which is, though strong, shakeable, as the current events have proven. Chaos and anarchy shakes it, but if it's forcibly balanced, everything will settle calmly into place and rot there. Chaos is a part of balance aswell, and if it is left out, the results will
[02:02] Murska: be as destructive as the other extreme.
[02:03] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Now would be a perfect time to vote, don't you think?"
[02:03] Happy: (heh)
[02:04] Happy: (sly bastard)
[02:04] Murska: (What about all the other witnesses? :P)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: (Bah, screw them)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "I belive we need to hear the other witnesses first…"
[02:05] Murska: (We better get this over with before we go to sleep, anyway.)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: (Yeah…)
[02:06] Happy: (SC will do Cessie's off screen I bet)
[02:06] Shadowcaller: Helios: "I can't see how they would change our minds, they have been with this elf all the time. Kuori isn't evenn her so he would not be able to confirm Hope's story anyway."
[02:06] Shadowcaller: *even
[02:09] Shadowcaller: "Come now, who wants to vote now? We could use time we save on hunting the worm or making all these improvments suggested."
[02:09] Shadowcaller: The gods looks doubius about it.
[02:10] Shadowcaller: Artari: "Aegnor, do you think your friends will change anything?"
[02:10] Murska: (Darn, my speech didn't have enough of an emotional effect if they can doubt)
[02:10] Shadowcaller: *artaris
[02:10] Murska: 'About this matter? Probably not. They might be able to offer complementary viewpoints on the worm itself, though.'
[02:11] Murska: (How'd ya like my arguments, anyway? :P)
[02:12] Murska: (Kinda hard to RP a good speaker when you're not one yourself)
[02:12] Happy: (you did good :) )
[02:12] Happy: brb food
[02:12] Shadowcaller: (How did you like Deveros?:P It was kind of a half/half since I didn't really belive in them myself >.>)
[02:13] Murska: (He makes sense, which is important. :P)
[02:13] Murska: (And managed to prod the weaknesses in my speech which I feared, at some points.)
[02:13] Murska: (And refused to get emotionally affected or shouted down by anyone else I'd managed to affect. v.v)
[02:14] Shadowcaller: (God of death? Emtionally effected?
He was actaully, he was just very good at hiding it, but it was of another reason…)
[02:16] Murska: (Well, god of death was arguing for mercy and helping the weak and such. :P)
[02:17] Shadowcaller: Artaris: "Very well, since no one is actually challenging Helios suggestion… how many of you want to want to vote now?"
[02:17] Shadowcaller: (Well, he was getting desperate.)
[02:18] Shadowcaller: (I say we vote for this ourself.)
[02:19] Murska: (Vote now has the largest chances of no limit victory due to hopefully emotion-inducing speech just ending, also ends the session earlier)
[02:20] Shadowcaller: (It all depends on how much we want to see Hope on trial…)
[02:23] Happy: (How long would that happen you think?)
[02:23] Shadowcaller: (Not sure really…)
[02:23] Happy: (is there aything different people would be asking her?)
[02:24] Shadowcaller: (Well, they will ask a bit about Kuori, that party maybe…)
[02:27] Murska: (poke.)
[02:27] Murska: (And Happy, there's a choice again)
[02:28] Happy: (any surprises though?)
[02:28] Happy: (and back with foods)
[02:28] Shadowcaller: (Not really… I think, the last part of my GM'ing will be when Helios reveals some of his secrets.)
[02:30] Happy: (okay. then no on more testimony. Or scene shift past it. either way)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (I'm going to do the secret thing tomorrow thought.)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Or well, next session.)
[02:30] Happy: (awww :( )
[02:32] Shadowcaller: (Ugh, are you done with the papperwork anyway?)
[02:32] Happy: >.>
[02:33] Murska: :P
[02:33] Murska: Touche.
[02:33] Happy: (I'll GM some after we get back to the mortal realms, even if I'm not
[02:33] Happy: (I have the seeds now, which i didn't have before)
[02:33] Shadowcaller: (Seeds?)
[02:34] Happy: (idea seeds)
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (ah.)
[02:34] Happy: (So…)
[02:35] Shadowcaller: (Well, it would take one session to reach the mortal realm anyway… or maybe less.)
[02:36] Shadowcaller: (When would they want to return? Cessie would like to do it directly after the trial.)
[02:36] Happy: (I guess everyone will go along with her. Though it might depend on Helios's secrets)
[02:37] Shadowcaller: The gods decide to vote now, but Aegnor needs to leave the hall first.
[02:37] Shadowcaller: He is send back to the party.
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "How did it go?"
[02:38] Murska: 'Well, I got to give a speech. Now they're voting about the limitations.'
[02:40] Shadowcaller: "It sounds like its not going to pass then." *smile*
[02:40] Happy: "I don't like the gods. But I guess I don't want them locked away either."
[02:41] Shadowcaller: Khen: "Its better to not mention that here…"
[02:42] Happy: "Sorry, Khen. Artaris is good. But Helios… he take advantage of me."
[02:43] Happy: "And some of them act like they hate mortals, even though they used to be them."
[02:44] Shadowcaller: Khen: "Its easy to forget…"
[02:45] Murska: (Maybe I should've gone for the 'Can you HONESTLY tell me you believe your arguments?' route against the death god and then see him caught by the lie detector web thing. :P)
[02:45] Shadowcaller: "We all were mortals once."
[02:46] Murska: (Happy, we need a vote)
[02:51] Shadowcaller: "Now we just need to wait for them to decide then, you are free to go if you like."
[02:54] Happy: "I want to wait," Simone says.
[02:54] Murska: 'How long will it take?'
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Khen: "I'm not sure… not too long I hope."
[02:55] Happy: (ff?)
[02:56] Shadowcaller: (huh?)
[02:56] Happy: (fast forward?)
[02:56] Shadowcaller: (Sure… its not very long anyway.)
[02:57] Shadowcaller: Helios appears before you, "Well, it looks like the suggestion was turned down." He says before you can do anything.
[02:58] Shadowcaller: (haha.)
[02:58] Shadowcaller: (Now eaglewiz sends in a night action.)
[02:58] Murska: (Would it even have hit anything?)
[02:59] Shadowcaller: (Nope:P)
[02:59] Happy: (who did he protect? Himself?)
[02:59] Shadowcaller: (Yeah)
[03:00] Happy: (Hmph. Hope wouldn't have done that)
[03:00] Happy: (esp after losing Promise. Suicidal charge.)
[03:00] Happy: "That good, right?"
[03:01] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[03:01] Shadowcaller: "Depends on your view point."
[03:02] Shadowcaller: "Thankfully, the gods appears to have forgotten all about the charges against me after your little show there. Well, most of them at least."
[03:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie. "What show?"
[03:05] Happy: poke
[03:05] Murska: 'Well, it was a good speech…' Aegnor shrugs and smiles.
[03:06] Shadowcaller: "Oh, that type of show."
[03:06] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Anyway… you wished to speak with me?"
[03:07] Happy: "Yes. You say you let gate close for greater good."
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "Yes, we should disscuss this in my realm… are you okay with that?"
[03:09] Happy: "Yes." Simone says. Hope nods.
[03:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I- I guess."
[03:09] Murska: 'Sure.
[03:09] Shadowcaller: "If Aegnor comes too."
[03:10] Murska: Aegnor nods.
[03:10] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Perfect… if you exhuse us Khen…"
[03:10] Happy: (Naib?)
[03:10] Murska: (Naib said 'sure')
[03:10] Murska: (Sorry for not clarifying.)
[03:12] Shadowcaller: You find yourself standin inside Helios library once again
[03:12] Happy: "Is Helia here?"
[03:13] Shadowcaller: "You will talk to Helia later, right now *I* have important things to tell you."
[03:13] Shadowcaller: "First of all… there are other legions."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "The worm was not the only one that survived the war…"
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "But they are like it was in the tree, sleeping."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "One of them are sealed inside Kuraz actually…"
[03:16] Shadowcaller: "I belive the worm tried to awaken it."
[03:16] Murska: 'Why haven't you told this to everyone?'
[03:17] Shadowcaller: "I have already told this to Ataris, he is the only one beside you I have choosen to trust."
[03:18] Happy: Hope: "Why not tell Kuori so he can destroy it?"
[03:18] Shadowcaller: "It have moved…"
[03:18] Shadowcaller: "It failed and moved on to some unkown location."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: *unknown
[03:18] Happy: Destroy the sleeping worm, I mean.
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "While Kuraz are keeping it sealed, it also is keeping everyoneone out, thus why the worm failed."
[03:20] Shadowcaller: "Not even Kuori will be able to enter Kuraz."
[03:20] Shadowcaller: "Or at least the deepest parts of it…"
[03:21] Murska: 'Things sealed for eternity have a disturbing tendency to break out sooner or later.'
[03:21] Murska: 'We should get rid of it while we still know of the threat.'
[03:21] Shadowcaller: "How exactly? The seal works both ways, no one is coming in our out."
[03:21] Shadowcaller: *or
[03:23] Murska: 'And we can't break it?'
[03:23] Happy: "So what else? That not a reason to let gate close."
[03:24] Shadowcaller: "Not as far as I know, and I let the gate to be sealed to make the god realize how much threat the legions are…"
[03:25] Happy: "So many people died! Wasn't Isandwana enough warning?"
[03:25] Shadowcaller: "Do you really think all of this is some wierd coincidence? The emperor sealing the gate? The cult moving out?"
[03:26] Shadowcaller: "It was all part of a greater plan, something even I can't see the end to. They are everywhere… they manupulated the emperor, they helped Reorn…"
[03:27] Happy: "The legions… are working together?"
[03:27] Shadowcaller: "They are, they seems to be able to influence mortals, even in their sleeping state."
[03:28] Murska: 'So don't they destroy each other when they meet after all?'
[03:28] Shadowcaller: "The worm is connecting them."
[03:29] Shadowcaller: "They haven't met really, during the war the legions were mindless tools of the wizards. Now they… are something else."
[03:29] Happy: Hope: "Why was the worm strong enough to leave the tree so soon after we thought it was defeated?"
[03:31] Shadowcaller: "I can't answer that yet… there are many unknown factors in this, but they are getting aided by both mortals and gods."
[03:32] Happy: "Do you know who the witchar was working with?" /Simone
[03:32] Murska: Naib: 'What have I gotten involved in…'
[03:33] Shadowcaller: "The witchar was working with the worm obviosly, if you are asking what god he is working with, then I don't know."
[03:34] Happy: "I think we should show him the letter," Simone says to Cessie.
[03:34] Shadowcaller: (didn't Aegnor have it?)
[03:34] Murska: Aegnor pulls it out.
[03:36] Shadowcaller: The letter leaves Aegnors hand and floats to Helios, it stays right in front of him.
[03:36] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… where did you find this?"
[03:37] Murska: 'On the corpse.'
[03:40] Shadowcaller: "Well, this is a very unusual letter, its not something everyone carries around."
[03:40] Shadowcaller: "It have a certain code to activate the true letter…"
[03:41] Happy: "You know the code?"
[03:42] Shadowcaller: "No, only the writer dose of course. If you try to break the enchantemtn with force, the letter will be destroyed, very clever construction…"
[03:42] Murska: Can we circumvent it somehow?
[03:43] Happy: (I guess Murska didn't testify about the conversation with nephilium then?)
[03:44] Murska: (I assumed it was part of the 'connections of cultists with worm')
[03:44] Shadowcaller: "If you start mixing with it, there is a chance the enchantment breaks and the hidden message is lost…"
[03:45] Happy: "Then how we learn what it tell?"
[03:45] Murska: 'How big a chance? If the other option is to not do anything…'
[03:47] Shadowcaller: "Quite large considering all things, did he says something odd before he he died?"
[03:49] Happy: Simone repeats his dying words
[03:51] Happy: 01:03] Shadowcaller: "Stop!" He manges to say before you do antyhing else "I know when i'm beaten."
[03:52] Shadowcaller: (Actually…)
[03:52] 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…"
[03:53] Happy: "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."
[03:53] Happy: [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…'
[03:55] Happy: (so…)
[03:55] Murska: I see no secret word.
[03:55] Shadowcaller: (Well?.)
[03:56] Shadowcaller: "Hm, we could try that I guess, but its possible he sealed ut before the battle."
[03:57] Shadowcaller: *it
[03:57] Happy: Hope has no opinio.
[03:58] Happy: Simone looks doubtful. "So what you think we should do?" to Helios.
[04:01] Shadowcaller: "Well, you have accomplished quite a lot haven't you? I'm going to inform you as soon as I have found any new leads on the worm or any of its allies. I may have a mission for you then… but until then we need to be *very* careful. I don't know how many gods that have sided with the worm yet…"
[04:03] Happy: "You know I serve Kuori, and my mate serves Zubera. I will not keep secrets from them."
[04:03] Shadowcaller: "Well, you must. This is not some game you know, you can't trust anyone."
[04:04] Happy: "You think Zubera would have arranged for her own assassination?"
[04:05] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, but I rather not going to take the chance, my life is too at stake here…"
[04:05] Murska: 'Would Norhold be deceitful enough to work with something like that?'
[04:05] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, the only god I trust right now is Ataris."
[04:05] Happy: Hope gives him a cold look. "I'm not your Chosen One, and I do not answer to you."
[04:06] Shadowcaller: "Really? I could wipe that memory from your mind right now if I wanted too."
[04:07] Happy: "You would touch another god's Chosen?"
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "If its nessecary."
[04:08] Murska: 'And you'd have to do it for us all.'
[04:09] Shadowcaller: "I let thousand of people die when I let the gate close, do you really think I would be afraid of erasing some memories?"
[04:11] Happy: Hope: /Kuori? Can you hear me?/
[04:11] Murska: 'Probably not, just stating facts here. And, given any warning at all, like you just did, we'd call and warn Zubera, Helena, Kuori and some spirits.'
[04:12] Shadowcaller: Helios: /Don't even try…/
[04:12] Shadowcaller: /This is my realm, my rules./
[04:13] Murska: 'So, why are we squabbling over technicalities anyway?'
[04:13] Happy: Simone: "Are we done with threats now? Can we get to work on what we need to do?"
[04:13] Happy: She feels pretty confident that Helios can't erase /her/ memories, at least, because of what Helia did.
[04:14] Shadowcaller: "Stay quiet until I contact you, that way, we might all survive this."
[04:14] Murska: And nobody can touch Cessie's mind.
[04:14] Murska: Hopefully. :P
[04:14] Happy: True. Helios himself made that lock.
[04:14] Murska: If Helios keeps to his deal.
[04:15] Murska: 'You do know we've been staying as quiet as we've been able for this whole time? Our success hasn't been very remarkable.'
[04:16] Shadowcaller: "I meant not a word about this conversation, this information I just gave you is extremly dangerous and should not be told to outsiders."
[04:16] Shadowcaller: "Just give me your word, and I will drop you off whereever you want."
[04:17] Happy: "You have nothing else to tell us?"
[04:17] Shadowcaller: "Not right now, and you act that trustworthy as it is, so I think I keep some things to myself."
[04:19] Happy: Simone gives him a serious look. "For better or worse, I bound to you. So you have my word." /not lying O.O
[04:19] Murska: (As if he's been so trustworthy himself.
[04:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I- this sounds awfully like our last deal."
[04:21] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Not really, I was very generous when I made that deal really. I basically saved you there."
[04:21] Happy: (Does Simone saying this put any kind of compulsion or geas on her?)
[04:22] Shadowcaller: (Um, yeah. Helios is automatically casting a geas on all of you.)
[04:22] Shadowcaller: (not that he will reveal that >.>)
[04:22] Murska: (Even Cessie?)
[04:22] Shadowcaller: (Even Cessie.)
[04:23] Shadowcaller: (Or maybe it dose count as a mind effect…)
[04:23] Murska: (Knew even deals without holes he'll break if he wants.)
[04:23] Happy: (I think it would count, yes)
[04:23] Happy: (and this isn't a 'deal', it's a threat)
[04:23] Murska: (Not even that. He's not leaving us with any choice whatsoever.)
[04:23] Happy: (a deal would have been 'I'll tell you this, but before I do, you must agree not to reveal it to anyone')
[04:24] Shadowcaller: (Maybe not Cessie then, but he think she is lawful enough.)
[04:24] Murska: (Anyway. Okay, order of importance: 'Kill Legions, Kill Helios, watch Arik die')
[04:24] Happy: (Well I think one of the other gods could remove the geas if they knew about it)
[04:24] Shadowcaller: (yeah, thats why he is not telling you about it.)
[04:25] Murska: (Aegnor in particular would be very, VERY angry about it.)
[04:25] Happy: so would Hope
[04:25] Happy: but won't she know when she /tries/ to tell Kuori, and can't?
[04:25] Shadowcaller: (Hm, maybe. So she is planning to lie then?)
[04:26] Happy: Hope isn't lawful
[04:26] Happy: And she doesn't consider a promise made under coercion to be binding
[04:26] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[04:26] Happy: But for the moment, Hope isn't saying anything.
[04:28] Shadowcaller: (Hm, alignment of Helios now?:P)
[04:28] Happy: (Same as it's always been: Neutral Slimey)
[04:29] Shadowcaller: "You need to understand that i'm doing this for your own good really. This information could end your lives as well."
[04:30] Happy: Hope still says nothing.
[04:31] Murska: 'Fine, fine. Get on with it.'
[04:31] Shadowcaller: "…I still can't belive you let all those people die. But- if this will save people, then yes, I agree."
[04:31] Shadowcaller: (Niab?)
[04:31] Shadowcaller: *Naib
[04:33] Murska: He's sorta tagging along, pretty shocked.
[04:33] Happy: Hope suddenly speaks up. "If I agree to this, I want something from you."
[04:34] Shadowcaller: "If its resonable."
[04:34] Happy: "I want you help me get Promise back, alive and safe, as quickly as possible."
[04:35] Happy: "And none of your loopholes. I mean back with me on the mortal realms."
[04:36] Shadowcaller: "I can agree on that, I will return Promise to you, I can even ask Nega ressurect you him for you. It would be quite hard to promise to return the dead alive and safe otherwise right?"
[04:36] Shadowcaller: "Err… if he would be dead that is."
[04:37] Happy: Hope closes her eyes. "He's not dead. I'm sure he's not."
[04:38] Shadowcaller: "Well, if everything was that easy… now do you agree to not say anything of what I have just told you to anyone outside this room?"
[04:38] Happy: "Yes."
[04:39] Shadowcaller: "Perfect! I will contact you later then, where do you wish to be dropped off?"
[04:39] Happy: "Gallion" Hope says. Probably at the same time that Cessie says "Kyou"
[04:40] Shadowcaller: (Yeah >.>)
[04:40] Shadowcaller: She looks at Hope for a while "…I'm sure he have moved by now."
[04:41] Happy: "How much time has passed?"
[04:41] Happy: /Simone
[04:41] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Just two days in the mortal realm."
[04:42] Happy: Simone: "He couldn't have gotten far in two days. And we should try and locate him. Is he to be kept in the dark as well?"
[04:43] Shadowcaller: "Arik is a very special case… but yes, he should be kept in the dark. He is unstable…"
[04:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "What?"
[04:43] Shadowcaller: Helios: "Nothing, Gallion right?"
[04:44] Shadowcaller: Helios library fades away
[04:44] Happy: Simone: "Kyou"
[04:44] Happy: (damn it… undo that
[04:44] Happy: (my GMing was planned for Kyou)
[04:44] Shadowcaller: (Um okay, Kyou then.)
[04:44] Happy: (:P)
[04:44] Shadowcaller: (And we end session, comments.?)
[04:45] Murska: Yays for debate. Roleplaying exp? ;)
[04:45] Happy: heh
[04:45] Happy: and Hope /still/ needs to speak to Kuori. though she won't try and break her word now.
[04:45] Shadowcaller: (She will nest session.)
[04:45] Murska: And Aegnor needs to talk to Cessie about being a part-dragon.
[04:45] Shadowcaller: *next
[04:45] Shadowcaller: (Hm yeah >.>)
[04:45] Murska: not to mention that dragon spirit
[04:46] Shadowcaller: (I'm glad to finally *not* being the GM:)
[04:46] Murska: and to Simone about the specialties of a spirit dagger
[04:46] Shadowcaller: *.)
[04:47] Happy: scary stuff about the many legions though
[04:48] Shadowcaller: (Well, hopefully they won't awaken yet >.>)
[04:50] Happy: Next session will be looking for Arik and discovering what the situation is in Kyou
[04:51] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[04:51] Shadowcaller: Or whatever you decide it to be

[04:51] Shadowcaller: ANd the players of course…
[04:51] Shadowcaller: Its a balance of power:P
[04:51] Happy: of course
[04:52] Happy: but i don't think our group particularly cares to try and influence it much
[04:52] Shadowcaller: True
[04:53] Shadowcaller: I was actually planning to get the gods less involved thought
[04:53] Shadowcaller: Aegnor changed that thought >.>
[04:53] Happy: haha
[04:53] Murska: I guessed that. ;)
[04:55] Happy: well ooc it probably would have been better. but IC, all of our characters and the main npc allies would all have fought against it
[04:56] Shadowcaller: Yeah, that was kind of why I was planning it
[04:56] Happy: pesky pcs messing everything up
[04:56] Murska: Heh.
[04:56] Murska: The first time the thing was brought up, I was
[04:57] Murska: to Happy
[04:57] Happy: Helena knew he would do that too… that's why she asked him what questions he had
[04:57] Murska: 'Here comes the way to stop us from calling on god help whenever we meet trouble'
[04:57] Happy: still, if they manifest now, they risk the worm finding and attacking them directly
[04:57] Happy: so they'll sitll probably do it less
[04:58] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[05:13] *** Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
