Lugias Cove 4

[23:40] Shadowcaller: *pokes Happy* So what should we do?
[23:40] Happy: go down to the sea to meet Melwin and Lugia?
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Right, you wait a day in the inn then?
[23:42] Happy: We do!
[23:43] Shadowcaller: Right
[23:43] Shadowcaller: As you leave the inn the next morning… err… not sure if shrimp can act much without Elly.
[23:43] General Shrimp: indeed.
[23:44] Shadowcaller: It's misty outside. A heavy fog lies over Lugia's cove and the village of Hommlet.
[23:45] Shadowcaller: You can hardly see anything at all except the whiteness
[23:48] Shadowcaller: (Should we move on?)
[23:48] General Shrimp: I suppose? I dunno what's going on, as usual. Where are we actually going to meet the poke-I mean dragon…
[23:49] Happy: We're supposed to go down to the sea to meet Lugia, if he agrees to see us
[23:50] Shadowcaller: Yes, exactly.
[23:50] Shadowcaller: And I updated warcraft, freedom!
[23:51] Shadowcaller: Okay, it's night time by the way.
[23:51] Shadowcaller: Not morning
[23:52] Murska: I knew those kills were the last nail to Horde's coffin
[23:55] Shadowcaller: The mists are especially thick around the cove itself
[23:56] Happy: I guess they are very very careful going down the path then.
[23:56] Shadowcaller: Like a white wall.
[23:56] General Shrimp: This is Lugia's doing!
[23:56] Shadowcaller: (SIlence shrimp >.>)
[23:57] General Shrimp: (…what?)
[23:57] Shadowcaller: (Don't give away clues:P)
[23:58] General Shrimp: (Um…random fog isn't going to make people think Lugia is responsible? :P)
[23:59] Shadowcaller: (Might as well be demons, or natural… since it's totally natural.) Anyway, you slowly reach the bottom of the cove where the mists ligthen a bit. You can see Melwin down there. Staring at you.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: (And Murska is making pizza so I guess we paus here.)
[00:00] Happy: Arim is probably holding hands with Karen…
[00:00] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[00:01] General Shrimp: (Natural? Bah! This is clearly all to do with Lugia!)
[00:02] Happy: I guess they walk towards Melwin then.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: I guess they do. "You came." He says ina cold tone.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: *in a
[00:02] Happy: "Does Lugia want to see us?"
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "He's here…"
[00:05] Happy: Karen looks to try and see him.
[00:05] General Shrimp: Hector smiles at Melwin, "Well, I'm glad to hear that. I take it you are Melwin?"
[00:06] Shadowcaller: Karen looks but see mostly mist. But then she notice a movement above them in the fog…
[00:07] Shadowcaller: The young boy nods "They didn't say more would come."
[00:08] General Shrimp: "Oh, I'm sorry about that. Well, it's nice to finally meet you anyway."
[00:09] Shadowcaller: Melwin's face seems to soften for a moment, but then go back to being neutral again. "Whats your name?"
[00:10] General Shrimp: "Hector. I'm one of the children, just like you."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Bad things happend to you too?"
[00:14] General Shrimp: "Bad things? Well, yes I suppose. Being told out of the blue that my power was originally some great demon's power wasn't pleasant, and my encounters with demons…well…things usually don't end well."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: Luna looks around the cove as well "Did you guys see that..?"
[00:14] Happy: "Yes."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: Melwin nods and looks down the ground "It dosen't end well…"
[00:15] Happy: "Melwin, this is Luna, another moon-touched. She is Arim's sister." And introduces Wren as well, if she's there.
[00:15] Shadowcaller: Arim stays close to Karen, as to protect her.
[00:16] Shadowcaller: Luna waves a bit. Melwin quickly looks over her and Wren as he did with Hector.
[00:17] Happy: (if Twobit leaves, you can add me back)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (Err… what happend there? >.>)
[00:17] General Shrimp: Hector (Who Wren is almost certainly hiding behind) sighs, "Perhaps it would've been best if only the people you first met had come down here. Sorry, I suppose we're all just a bit eager to meet Lugia."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: Melwin glances back over the water and then back at you "He wanted to come."
[00:21] General Shrimp: "Ah, really? Oh good, that's certainly good news."
[00:22] Happy: (Murska? You here?)
[00:23] Murska: no
[00:23] Shadowcaller: (It's robo-Murska.)
[00:25] Shadowcaller: You hear a low noise echo throught the cove.
[00:26] Shadowcaller: "…why did you want to see him?" Melwin asks.
[00:28] Happy: Karen assumes one of the 'grownups' is expected to answer that question.
[00:29] General Shrimp: (Hmm, good question!)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (And Luna and Arim dosen't know why:P)
[00:30] General Shrimp: (Well, did they have a reason? As far as I know it's just…sort of…curiousity.)
[00:30] Happy: (because it kills demons)
[00:30] General Shrimp: (Exactly! Curiousity! Why does it kill demons?)
[00:31] Murska: (Because it's their mortal enemy)
[00:31] General Shrimp: "Well, after discovering the corpse of what seemed to be some sort of water beast or demon on the beach, I wanted to find out a bit more about the creature capable of taking down such things with ease."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Melwin nods for some reason.
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "The rest?"
[00:34] Happy: (because it's preeeeeetty!)
[00:35] Murska: 'It's not often I even hear of dragons, let alone see any.'
[00:35] General Shrimp: (Because I'm going to catch it and train it!)
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Lugia is an angel…" Melwin corrects.
[00:38] Happy: "A beautiful angel."
[00:40] Shadowcaller: He smiles slightly, nodding in agreement.
[00:45] General Shrimp: (What is Melwin's power anyway?)
[00:45] Shadowcaller: (Control water.)
[00:47] Murska: Derek is staring blankly into the mist.
[00:50] Happy: "Lugia?" Karen says to the mist, quietly.
[00:58] General Shrimp: Hector chuckles quietly.
[01:05] Shadowcaller: —-
[01:07] Shadowcaller: Luna is also staring a bit blankly into the mist.
[01:15] General Shrimp: "Lugia can grant us one wish. He doesn't know the full limitations of the wish, but something as powerful as bringing back the dead is impossible. Any ideas?"
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "…he said the same thing to me." Luna says.
[01:17] General Shrimp: "Well, did you think of anything worth wishing for?"
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "Yeah…"
[01:19] General Shrimp: "What?"
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "Um, give me a moment."
[01:19] Murska: 'Hm.' Derek scratches his head. 'I think I have a destination for us later.'
[01:23] General Shrimp: "Me too…"
[01:25] Shadowcaller: "Where exactly?"
[01:25] Murska: 'We need to go to Ruthan.'
[01:26] General Shrimp: "Lugia mentioned to me that his mate would possibly join us as an ally…as Derek said, we need to go to Ruthan."
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "Ruthan… where is that?)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "
[01:32] General Shrimp: Hector points up. "Mountains…or a mountainous region at least…the mountain region above us is what Lugia said."
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "RIght, mountains, lovely…"
[01:36] General Shrimp: "Hey, Lugia is pretty powerful. The shield here…whatever that means…is weak, and many demons enter the place here every day. He keeps it safe. The mate of such a powerful angel would be incredibly helpful."
[01:37] Murska: 'Not that she cares about humans.'
[01:37] Murska: 'Regardless, worth a try.'
[01:39] Murska: Derek suddenly blanks out completely.
[01:40] Shadowcaller: "Derek?" Luna asks, stepping closer to him.
[01:40] Shadowcaller: She seems worried.
[01:40] General Shrimp: "So what are we d-huh? Derek?"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: "The… angel or whatever said he granted a wish… or something."
[01:47] General Shrimp: "What? Derek made a wish then?"
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Luna nods, and goes back to looking at Derek.
[01:49] General Shrimp: Hector sighs, "Yeah, he made a wish. He wanted to know what happened to his wife."
[01:51] Murska: (Hmpf. Private stuff, man.)
[01:52] General Shrimp: (And? Hector asked Lugia.)
[01:52] Murska: (Hector has no sense of tact whatsoever)
[01:52] Murska: Derek is shaking.
[01:52] General Shrimp: (At least he doesn't waste wishes. :P)
[01:53] Happy: I guess Karen is still blanked, or she'd do something. >.>
[01:54] Murska: (Waste? Nah.)
[01:54] General Shrimp: (Totally a waste. Meh.)
[01:54] Murska: (Karen should do something anyway, Happy. :P)
[01:56] Murska: (Anyway, Derek could've wished for some sort of protection for Karen but that'd be way too difficult to word properly and make work not to mention possibly too big of a wish)
[01:57] Happy: Karen suddenly notices and comes out of her reverie. "Father!"
[01:57] Happy: Runs to him and puts her arms around him.
[01:58] Murska: He's very tense and shaking slightly, looking straight through her.
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "Karen… he's okay…. I think." Luna says. Now Arim appears to be worried as well.
[01:59] Happy: "Pleasebeokaypleasebeokaypleasebeokay…"
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Arim stays back "Karen, she says he is going to be okay. The angel wouldn't hurt him right?"
[02:06] Murska: Derek sways to the side and almost collapses. 'Gods…'
[02:06] Happy: Karen is holding him tightly and waiting for him to respond. She hardly seems to hear the others.
[02:06] Happy: She tries to catch him as he sways.
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Luna manages to stop Arim from interfering and then tries to help Derek down on a rock to sit on. Melwin is looking strangely at Derek.
[02:11] Murska: He sits down.
[02:13] Happy: Karen sits down with him, her arms still around him. "What happened? Please be okay…"
[02:16] Murska: Derek wipes his eyes. 'I'm fine…'
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "Do you know whats wrong with him?" Arim asks Hector.
[02:20] General Shrimp: "He made a wish…"
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, but what wish?"
[02:21] General Shrimp: "A selfish one."
[02:21] Shadowcaller: "Oh…"
[02:21] Happy: "Shut up! Don't talk that way about my father!"
[02:21] Shadowcaller: (I sense party conflict:P)
[02:22] Happy: (geez… and he thought Derek had no tact… :P )
[02:23] General Shrimp: "Oh sure, go ahead and defend him. I don't care any more. He's selfish and a bloody fool. He nearly got us killed going after those damn infernals! When we first bumped into you he managed to send you running the other way!" Hector shakes his head, "I've had enough. Risking our lives pointlessly and wasting Lugia's gift is not the way to get through this alive."
[02:24] Happy: Karen starts crying.
[02:24] Shadowcaller: (Hehe… just keeps getting better and better.)
[02:25] General Shrimp: "I've tried to get along with him. It hasn't worked. Have fun on your suicide mission." Hector turns and starts to leave. (We really need Elly here for this.)
[02:25] Murska: (heh.)
[02:25] Murska: (perfect timing?)
[02:25] Shadowcaller: (Indeed…)
[02:26] Shadowcaller: Arim goes to Karen "It's okay.. Derek is okay, don't listen to him."
[02:26] Happy: (Hector has apparently been taking diplomacy lessons from Derek)
[02:26] Elly: ( :P )
[02:27] Happy: I'll do a log for Elly
[02:27] Shadowcaller: Luna and Melwin remains silent.
[02:27] Murska: Derek sighs, putting an arm on Karen's shoulder.
[02:27] Elly: (Will sit quietly? >.> )
[02:27] Shadowcaller: (It's a party in conflict.)
[02:27] Happy: (private chat forElly too, I imagine)
[02:27] Shadowcaller: (Um, with me?)
[02:28] Happy: (unless Lugia doesn't talk to Wren)
[02:28] Elly: ( Party is conflicting with you? Now that's a bad idea. )
[02:28] Elly: ( >.> )
[02:28] Shadowcaller: (He would talk to her… but do a log first.)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Most of it have been privat conversations between Lugia and the party members.)
[02:30] Elly: ( *is waiting for garbage computer to load* >.> (
[02:30] Elly: )
[02:32] Elly: ( You guys should probably go on in the meantime? >.>?)
[02:32] Happy: Karen's busy crying. :P
[02:32] General Shrimp: (Well, we would, but Hector is busy, um, leaving…)
[02:32] Elly: (Jeeze Hector. :P )
[02:33] General Shrimp: (I'm guessing Wren might try and stop him, I dunno.)
[02:33] Elly: ( o.o )
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (Well, do something at least >.>)
[02:35] General Shrimp: Anyway, Hector is heading away from the cove.
[02:35] Shadowcaller: None of my characters or NPC's are going to stop him. ^^
[02:36] Murska: And mine won't bother
[02:36] Shadowcaller: So what is Derek doing?
[02:37] Elly: ( Bleh. Enough of that. *kills the Firefox that came up* *puts it in IE* *three seconds later it opens* …and Firefox is the /fast/ one? =\ )
[02:37] General Shrimp: (For most people it's faster.)
[02:38] Happy: (firefox takes longer to initially load everything, but runs faster once it's up and running, i think)
[02:39] Elly: ( …so useless for forum browsing? :P )
[02:39] Happy: no, I mean it takes longer the first time it opens
[02:39] Happy: (if you didn't already have firefox running)
[02:40] Elly: ( *uses IE, links from MSN automatically open in Firefox for… no identafiable reason.)
[02:40] General Shrimp: (You must've set it as your default browser.)
[02:41] Elly: ( Aha! >.> )
[02:45] Elly: "…what was the wish, though?" Wren calls after Hector. ( >.> )
[02:45] General Shrimp: "He wanted to know what happened to his wife…" And he's gone in the mist.
[02:46] Shadowcaller: (Darn you mist! Darn youuuuu!)
[02:46] Elly: (Tricksy mist!)
[02:47] General Shrimp: (well, I mean, he's still there, but with such low visibility he doesn't have to go far before he's out of sight.)
[02:48] Elly: "Hector?" She calls after him worriedly, and starts after him, toward the exit.
[02:49] Happy: Karen stiffens all over.
[02:49] General Shrimp: She receives no answer. He's heading back to the inn.
[02:50] Murska: (And Derek's a wasteful one xD)
[02:51] Happy: She buries her face on his shoulder. "I don't think that was a selfish wish," she says in a very very small voice.
[02:52] Shadowcaller: "Derek?" Luna asks "Are you okay?"
[02:52] Murska: 'Wishes are always selfish.'
[02:53] Happy: "So what? He had no right to judge."
[02:54] Murska: 'True.'
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Back at the inn, it's pretty dead. The innkeeper is cleaning a mug, two patrons are having a quiet disscussion at one of the tables.
[02:55] General Shrimp: Hector isn't doing much, he's just going to sit down in one of the comfy chairs and close his eyes as he thinks about what to do next.
[02:55] Happy: "I don't want to know, do I?"
[02:56] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh "Should I go after them?"
[02:57] Murska: He sighs. 'Not really. But do you think you need to?'
[02:57] Happy: "Just tell me if she's dead."
[02:58] Murska: 'Either dead or worse.'
[02:59] Elly: Wren doesn't leave all the way, pausing just out of sight in the mist, standing quietly, feeling more alone in the world than anything, even though there are people in the cave just behind her, and somewhere on the path ahead…
[02:59] Happy: Karen cries some more (what else? -.- )
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "…aren't you worried they might leave?" Luna says, just above the sound of Karen's cries.
[03:03] Murska: He sighs. 'Does it matter? We can't work together.'
[03:07] Shadowcaller: The mists around Wren gives no sympahy for her cause.
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "I- we are just letting them go?"
[03:08] Happy: "We'll find a way."
[03:08] Happy: "Arim? Luna? Could you find them?"
[03:08] Elly: Wren quietly leans back against the stone, slowly sliding down until she's sitting.
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm going…" Luna gets up.
[03:09] Shadowcaller: She will go back to the inn. Arim stays where he is with Karen and Derek. Melwin seem a bit bored, blanking.
[03:10] Shadowcaller: Luna goes into Wren "Are you okay sister?" She says quiely.
[03:11] Elly: "I suppose…" She sits quietly, staring at the rocks for a little before glancing up at Luna, "Do you think it's going to work out alright?"
[03:13] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh and sits down a bit. "I hope so, I hate to see either of you go. I just wish Derek and Hector worked better together."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "Should we do and see him?" Luna smiles sadly.
[03:14] Elly: "…I guess." She doesn't seem set on moving yet, remaining unhappily slouched on the ground.
[03:15] Shadowcaller: Luna offers her hand "Come along, you can do this Wren."
[03:16] Happy: Karen stays with Derek, just keeping her arms around him.
[03:18] Elly: Wren takes Luna's hand, standing up. "I don't know… Where are we going after this? Nowhere, fast…"
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "We have a location now Wren, the guys said we should go to some mountain region. There is some dragon there that could protect us."
[03:20] Shadowcaller: "Or so they say…"
[03:24] Shadowcaller: "Thats something right?" Luna smiles again, sqeezing Wren's hand lightly.
[03:25] Elly: ( Sorry SC. I'm out of here for the night before I go in-fucking-sane. >.< )
[03:25] Murska: Derek hugs Karen for a moment.
[03:25] Murska: Then he carefully stands up.
[03:25] Shadowcaller: (Okay, see you Elly.)
[03:25] Happy: bai Elly
[03:25] *** Elly has left the conversation.
[03:26] General Shrimp: (Well, looks like the drama has to wait for later. Oh well.)
[03:26] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… >.>)
[03:27] Happy: (apparently wherever she is has druggies… )
[03:27] Shadowcaller: (Huh?)
[03:27] Happy: (no idea…)
[03:28] General Shrimp: (Her younger brother she said…I think.)
[03:28] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I just read.)
[03:30] General Shrimp: (And now I'm bored…)
[03:30] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[03:30] Shadowcaller: (Want to play magic?)
[03:31] General Shrimp: (…sure. Got nothin' else to do.)
[03:32] Murska: Derek bows towards the mist and turns back to Karen. 'Are we ready to head back now?'
[03:37] Happy: Karen stands up slowly. "No, not yet."
[03:37] Happy: She starts to remove her outer skirt.
[03:37] Shadowcaller: Arim raises an eyebrow "Karen, what are you doing?"
[03:38] Happy: "Lugia wants me to swim out to him."
[03:39] Murska: 'All right, we'll wait. Be careful.'
[03:39] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, be careful Karen!"
[03:43] Happy: She squeezes Arim's hand, and goes out into the water.
[03:43] Happy: (she took off her shoes too…)
[03:47] Shadowcaller: As she have gone a while into the water, something huge comes from above. A long slender neck that ends with a huge head, all in a silver-white color looks down. Soon the whole creature comes down in the water, it's wingspan might be even wider then the entire cove when fully stretched and it's body is slender despite it's enormous size. It settles down in the water, floating. Looking a bit like
[03:47] Shadowcaller: A gigantic swan.
[03:47] Happy: /You're beautiful/
[03:49] Shadowcaller: /Than you child. I hope my mate agrees with you./ You notice that Lugia have something hanging between it's jaws, it appears to be a necklance.
[03:49] Shadowcaller: *thank
[03:50] Shadowcaller: Lugia stretches his neck towards you, so your within reach of the necklance /Give this to your mother./
[03:50] Happy: She reaches out to take it.
[03:51] Shadowcaller: It feels cold to touch. /Tell your father it will… save her./
[03:53] Shadowcaller: Suddenly Lugia turns away, something appears to have disturbed him.
[03:54] Shadowcaller: /Go now child, I need to leave. Tell your friends that it was good to meet them./
[03:55] Shadowcaller: /They can make the wish whenever they like, it's what I have given them./
[03:55] Happy: /Thank you/
[03:56] Happy: /If there's ever anything I can do for you… /
[03:57] Shadowcaller: The gigantic creature smiles /Kill the demons, take care of your friends, your people. That is all I can ever ask of you child./
[03:58] Happy: She turns to swim back, gripping the necklace tightly.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: She can feel water on her head as Lugia starts to beat his wings. As Karen reach the shore, the party can see how Lugia flies away into the night.
[04:02] Happy: Karen gets to the shore, and gets to her feet, dripping wet.
[04:02] Shadowcaller: Arim goes to Karen as she reach the shore "Are you okay? You need to get some warmth."
[04:02] Shadowcaller: (Luna, Wren and Hector are in the inn now by the way.)
[04:03] Happy: "Better than okay," she says, and hugs him impulsively.
[04:04] Shadowcaller: Arim smiles and huge her back "I'm so glad to hear that Karen."
[04:05] Murska: 'But we're going back to the inn now. You're going to freeze.'
[04:06] Shadowcaller: *hugs
[04:06] Happy: She goes to Derek and takes his hands in both of hers, putting the necklace in his hands, and looking him in the eye. "He says this will save her."
[04:08] Murska: His eyes widen. 'Really? I…' Turning his head downwards, he mutters: 'Thank you…'
[04:11] Shadowcaller: "What is it?" Arim asks.
[04:11] Shadowcaller: Melwin seems to have dissapeared into the mist.
[04:11] Happy: Karen looks at it… she didn't even get a chance in the water.
[04:13] Shadowcaller: It's a silver-shaped hourglas, it's quite rough, not any fine details, but the material it's made in is very beutiful. You don't think it's silver at all.
[04:15] Happy: "What if… what if we really could get her back?" she says, running a finger over the hourglass.
[04:16] Murska: 'I…' He looks at her. 'We can hope.'
[04:23] Happy: She smiles at him, and leaves the necklace in his hands.
[04:24] Shadowcaller: (Going to respond to Arim's question?)
[04:25] Happy: "It's a necklace… I don't know what it does."
[04:26] Shadowcaller: Arim just nods. "You must be freezing thought."
[04:26] Happy: "Yes."
[04:27] Murska: 'Yes, let's head back now.'
[04:27] Happy: She puts on her outer garments, which are some help
[04:27] Murska: He grips the necklace tightly.
[04:29] Shadowcaller: Arim helps Karen and then tries to lead her out of the cove.
[04:29] Happy: And they return to the inn.
[04:30] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[04:32] Shadowcaller: Um, should we end there? Seems like a very good spot
[04:32] Happy: yes
[04:32] Murska: 3e?
[04:32] Murska: :P
[04:32] Murska: most likely you should sleep »
[04:33] Shadowcaller: What did you think? I think it went rather well >.>
[04:34] Shadowcaller: Bah, I have the energy of 10 people
[04:34] Happy: I think so
[04:34] Shadowcaller: But I guess <.<
[04:34] Happy: you have the energy of 10 Happy and Murskas :P
[04:34] Shadowcaller: Happy needs to think of plot anyway.
[04:35] Happy: i have to read all the other conversations before I know for sure how it went ^^
[04:35] Murska: Well enough in my opinion
[04:35] Shadowcaller: Indeed… I liked the way it turned out
[04:35] Shadowcaller: COnflicts and stuff >.>
[04:37] Murska: So… Bored. :P
[04:37] Shadowcaller: Gah!
[04:38] Shadowcaller: Can you save our conversation Murska?
[04:38] Murska: No.
[04:38] Murska: Closed it a while ago.
[04:38] Murska: Except that yes
[04:38] Murska: wonderful
[04:38] Shadowcaller: Right, I saved it thought
[04:38] Murska: it is again saving the log
