Mar 07

[19:31] Murska: we haven't started
[19:31] MrEdwardNigma: private seems smart
[19:31] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[19:31] Happy: ugh
[19:32] Murska: still headached?
[19:32] MrEdwardNigma: Booze helps
[19:32] Happy: yeah, it does. *looks mournfully at Jack Daniels*
[19:36] Shadowcaller: Everyone remember where we was?
[19:37] Happy: guarding Cessie from nightmares?
[19:37] Shadowcaller: Right…
[19:38] Murska: Staring at a fire.
[19:39] Shadowcaller: Inside the inn? o.O
[19:39] MrEdwardNigma: I'll GM
[19:39] MrEdwardNigma: but since I missed a bunch of session, expect me to miss some stuff
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (don't worry, so did we)
[19:40] Shadowcaller: *still sleeps*
[19:40] MrEdwardNigma: Right. Okay, we'll start at the crack of dawn.
[19:40] MrEdwardNigma: You awaken to the sounds of wailing
[19:40] MrEdwardNigma: cries
[19:41] MrEdwardNigma: sounds like a woman's voice
[19:41] MrEdwardNigma: downstairs
[19:41] Happy: (Cessie didn't nightmare again?)
[19:41] Murska: (Aegnor slept?)
[19:42] MrEdwardNigma: (plenty of nightmares, no sleep for Aegnor)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (nope, or maybe I did but it don't matter now)
[19:42] Happy: Happy jolts awake, and runs downstairs, hand on sword hilt.
[19:42] Murska: Aegnor stops staring at the fire, downstairs, and looks round.
[19:42] Murska: around*
[19:43] MrEdwardNigma: Downstairs a woman is in tears, on her knees
[19:43] Shadowcaller: "What was that? Is this another dream…" Cessie says sleepily
[19:43] MrEdwardNigma: she's dragging at the innkeep's clothes, begging
[19:44] Murska: Aegnor stands up and walks nearer.
[19:44] MrEdwardNigma: There is a man at the table too, less noticable
[19:44] MrEdwardNigma: he's crying, with his face buried in his hands
[19:44] MrEdwardNigma: on the table is a cup of coffee, which is long cold
[19:44] MrEdwardNigma: the woman is sobbing about someone named "Robbie"
[19:45] MrEdwardNigma: she wants her "Robbie" back
[19:45] MrEdwardNigma: Now you notice two more men
[19:45] MrEdwardNigma: by the door
[19:45] Murska: Aegnor glances at Happy who should be running downstairs.
[19:45] MrEdwardNigma: both look very serious, and both are armed
[19:45] MrEdwardNigma: one's skin is black, and the other is covered in tattoos
[19:45] Shadowcaller: *Cessie goes up, just to ensure herself that this is not another dream*
[19:45] Shadowcaller: "Whats going on?"
[19:46] MrEdwardNigma: the black man carries an axe, noticably in his hand, while the tattooed man has his hands on his twin daggers
[19:46] MrEdwardNigma: The innkeep looks at Cessie
[19:46] MrEdwardNigma: he shrugs
[19:46] MrEdwardNigma: "Their son is gone"
[19:46] MrEdwardNigma: "Probably ran off"
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "Things were pretty wild last night…"
[19:47] MrEdwardNigma: The woman sobs some more
[19:47] MrEdwardNigma: The innkeep shrugs again. "Yeah, maybe he'll be back?"
[19:47] Murska: Aegnor silently watches the events.
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "Maybe he is just fell asleep in the forest or something?" *tries to cheer the woman up*
[19:48] Happy: Happy watches the armed men, her hand on the hilt of her sword.
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "We saw pleanty of people of people going into the forest to do… something right?"
[19:48] Murska: *whisper@happy* 'What's with those guys near the door…'
[19:48] MrEdwardNigma: The woman keeps sobbing and wailing uncontrollably
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (something=having sex)
[19:49] MrEdwardNigma: The large black man growls at happy as he sees her reach for her blade
[19:49] Happy: *whisper @ Aegnor* "Talk to the other man."
[19:49] Murska: (?)
[19:49] MrEdwardNigma: The man at the table looks up, showing his face. It seems worn, as if he's been missing a lot of sleep
[19:49] MrEdwardNigma: "No"
[19:49] Happy: Happy just rests her hand there for now, glaring back at t hem.
[19:49] MrEdwardNigma: "Not Robbie. Robbie is my son. And he's five years old"
[19:50] Shadowcaller: "Oh…"
[19:50] Murska: 'So, where could he have gone?'
[19:50] MrEdwardNigma: The tattooed man draws his daggers slowly
[19:50] MrEdwardNigma: "He couldn't have GONE anywhere!" the man shouts
[19:50] MrEdwardNigma: "He was with us, at night, in his bed!"
[19:51] MrEdwardNigma: "But this morning, he was gone!"
[19:51] Murska: Aegnor, noticing this, secretly moves his hands near his weaponry.
[19:51] Murska: 'Well it seems obvious that if he can't have gone anywhere, someone has taken him somewhere. What are you shouting at the barkeep for?'
[19:51] Shadowcaller: "maybe we all should calm down, we don't want anyone to get hurt right?"
[19:51] MrEdwardNigma: "w-w-we thought he- he was downstairs but…" the woman sobs
[19:52] Happy: Happy continues watching the armed men, slowly positioning herself to stand between them and Cessie.
[19:52] MrEdwardNigma: "The boy was gone this morning. Someone came in and took him" the father says
[19:53] MrEdwardNigma: "What's more, HE drugged me!" he shouts, pointing at the barkeep
[19:53] Murska: 'Shouldn't someone go call the town guard or something?'
[19:53] MrEdwardNigma: "They don't trust the town guard" the barkeep grunts
[19:54] MrEdwardNigma: "Off course not!" the man shouts, "you're all savages over here! With your drunken dancing and singing and- and stealing our son!"
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "Do you know anyone who would harm you or your child?"
[19:54] Happy: *continues eyeing Mr Tattoo*
[19:54] MrEdwardNigma: The woman looks up at Cessie
[19:55] MrEdwardNigma: "well, Robert does have some associates that-"
[19:55] Murska: *lets Cessie handle the situation, smirking in his mind at being called a savage*
[19:55] MrEdwardNigma: "We don't know anyone that would want to harm us" the father says
[19:56] MrEdwardNigma: Mr Tattoo looks at Happy suspiciously
[19:56] MrEdwardNigma: "Why're you all armed?" the black man asks
[19:56] Shadowcaller: (I'm not armed)
[19:56] Murska: 'Who isn't, around here?'
[19:56] Happy: "Because there are frickin bandits everywhere," Happy says.
[19:56] MrEdwardNigma: "Decent people ain't armed. Not unless they're worth robbing" the black man says
[19:57] Murska: 'And who are you then? Part of the mercenary squad around here?'
[19:57] MrEdwardNigma: "Yeah, we're mercs. But we're asking the questions here"
[19:57] Murska: 'Well we're the ones who saved Blaze'
[19:58] MrEdwardNigma: "Don't know any Blaze. We arrived with mister Burns"
[19:58] Murska: 'Unrelated mercenaries eh? Sure a lot of you for such a small town'
[19:59] MrEdwardNigma: "Seems suspicious to me" Mr Tattoo said, "You being armed and all, and staying in the room right across that of Mr. and Mrs. Burns. You seem frightened of us, but why would you if you're just?"
[19:59] Murska: 'Frightened of you? Hah.'
[19:59] Happy: Happy smirks.
[19:59] MrEdwardNigma: "I lock my doors at night" the barkeep says, "If anyone took your son it had to be someone who was staying here"
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "Is there any reason you are asking us all this?"
[20:00] MrEdwardNigma: "Or you, innkeep" the father says
[20:00] MrEdwardNigma: "because you're suspicious, that's why!" Mr Tattoo shouts
[20:00] Murska: 'Well, I stayed downstairs for the whole night.'
[20:01] MrEdwardNigma: "I closed the bar at four. Don't see why you'd wanna sit in an empty bar" the barkeep said
[20:01] Happy: "Then why don't we start by searching the inn?"
[20:01] MrEdwardNigma: "You got any proof?" Mr Tattoo asked
[20:01] Murska: 'What else to do? Elves don't sleep.'
[20:01] MrEdwardNigma: "Fine" the black man said, "But no-one's leaving"
[20:01] MrEdwardNigma: "Not until little Robbie is found"
[20:02] Murska: 'Hmpf. Well then I guess we better help look.'
[20:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie sights (her clothes are still a bit sweaty after last night)
[20:02] Happy: "Aegnor, you go with Mr Tattoo. I'll stay here with my new friend," Happy says, looking at the black man.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: *sigh
[20:03] MrEdwardNigma: "the name's Mercurius" Mr tattoo said
[20:03] Murska: 'Where are we going anyway?'
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "Could I speak to your wife sir….?"
[20:03] MrEdwardNigma: "I'm Hawk" the black man said
[20:04] MrEdwardNigma: Mr Burns shook his head and put his arm around his sobbing wife, who had now released the innkeep from her clutches
[20:04] Happy: "I'm Happy. I want you to do the search, Aegnor. while Hawk and I make sure no one leaves."
[20:04] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't think so. Alicia is not feeling well"
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "I understand."
[20:04] Murska: 'Fine, fine. So, I say we gather everyone here while we go search the rooms. Hey barkeep, how many exits from the building?'
[20:04] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk growled. "I make sure no-one leaves. me and mercurius. No-one else"
[20:05] MrEdwardNigma: "Two exits" the barkeep said, "The front door and the back door in the kitchen. But I suppose you could jump out of any of the upstiars windows"
[20:05] Shadowcaller: "Surely there was others at the inn last night?"
[20:05] Happy: "So you trust us to search the place by ourselves?" Happy says with a smirk?
[20:05] Murska: (What are the windows like?'
[20:06] MrEdwardNigma: "I have some other guests, yes"
[20:06] MrEdwardNigma: (the windows are small, with glass panes that only open if you have a key, or smash the glass off course)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: (Last session there was not any windows upstairs, just so you know.)
[20:07] MrEdwardNigma: (A hotel WITHOUT windows??? yeah, cause that's likely)
[20:07] Murska: 'Arg. Just decide what we'll do, I'll help you do it and then we get out of here. I'd like to reach the tower before I grow old.'
[20:07] Shadowcaller: (Well, there was windows downstairs:P)
[20:08] MrEdwardNigma: (there still are. But in the rooms too, cause that's the only thing that makes sense)
[20:08] Shadowcaller: (sure, but they are small anyway)
[20:08] Happy: (maybe the innkeeper was too cheep to buy glass)
[20:08] MrEdwardNigma: "You ain't leaving 'till we find little Robbie"
[20:08] Murska: 'So why aren't you searching then?'
[20:08] MrEdwardNigma: (sure, they're small)
[20:09] MrEdwardNigma: "Cause we've been hired to prevent you from leaving. Mr. Burns' orders"
[20:09] Shadowcaller: "Where was the last place you saw him?"
[20:09] Murska: 'Hm. So none of us are getting anywhere.'
[20:09] MrEdwardNigma: Robert Burns sighed. "I told you, he was in the room with us"
[20:09] Murska: Aegnor sits down nearby.
[20:09] Happy: "Fine. Let's search then."
[20:10] Shadowcaller: "Was the room locked?"
[20:10] Happy: "Mr Burns? Are you coming?"
[20:10] MrEdwardNigma: "No, I believe I will stay here with my wife. In fact, I think we may retire"
[20:10] MrEdwardNigma: "And no, our room was not locked"
[20:11] Murska: 'Do we know nobody has left the building before?'
[20:11] Happy: Happy stares in disbelief. "You don't want to search for your own son? What the hell is wrong with you?"
[20:12] MrEdwardNigma: A tear wobbles down Mr. Burns' face. "I'm sorry, this has all been too much for us"
[20:12] MrEdwardNigma: "Nobody left last night. We only had some new arrivals" the innkeep said
[20:12] Happy: Happy turns on her heel and heads upstairs to start searching the rooms.
[20:12] Shadowcaller: *whispers to Aegnor* I don't think we will find any clues of their child here
[20:13] Murska: *whisper* 'Fine, let's search then.'
[20:13] Murska: 'I guess you got someone guarding the kitchen door aswell, then.'
[20:13] Shadowcaller: *By "here" i meant the inn"
[20:13] Murska: With that comment, Aegnor walks after Happy.
[20:13] MrEdwardNigma: Most of the rooms upstairs are locked. Only the door leading to your room and three others are loose
[20:14] MrEdwardNigma: Mr Tattoo grunts and walks off to the kitchen
[20:14] Happy: Happy starts searching the first room by the stairs, which was Aegnors, and therfore empty last night.
[20:14] MrEdwardNigma: The room is as Aegnor left it
[20:14] Shadowcaller: /there is no way someone would hide the child in here/
[20:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes back to their room
[20:15] Happy: Goes to the next room. If it's locked, bang on the door.
[20:15] MrEdwardNigma: the next room is loose
[20:15] MrEdwardNigma: Happy pushes open the door and finds that the room belongs to Mr. and mrs. Burns
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (ops)
[20:16] Happy: search
[20:16] MrEdwardNigma: Mrs. burns is sleeping on the bed, while Mr. Burns is bent over some notes by a table by the window
[20:16] Happy: (they beat us upstairs?)
[20:16] MrEdwardNigma: There is a small extra bed on the floor
[20:16] MrEdwardNigma: (they did)
[20:16] Happy: :P
[20:16] Happy: (ninja parents)
[20:17] MrEdwardNigma: there are also some plates with some leftovers on the closet
[20:17] MrEdwardNigma: and some wooden toys on the floor
[20:17] Shadowcaller: *lays down in own bed*
[20:17] Happy: /Something's wrong with that man./
[20:18] Murska: Aegnor is walking along with Happy.
[20:18] Happy: *goes to next room*
[20:18] MrEdwardNigma: the next room also unlocked
[20:19] Shadowcaller: /I need another pair of clothes, and to wash these…./
[20:19] MrEdwardNigma: there is a single double bed inside, but someone's slept on some blankets on the floor as well
[20:20] MrEdwardNigma: there are some conspicuous holes in the door, at shoulder height
[20:20] Murska: 'Hm. I didn't see anyone else downstairs… where are these people?'
[20:20] MrEdwardNigma: the window is loose in here
[20:20] Murska: (the small window nobody can in any way pass through, right?)
[20:20] MrEdwardNigma: and there's a big bag in the open closet
[20:21] MrEdwardNigma: (yes, they can. but it's quite a drop to the street)
[20:21] Happy: look bag
[20:21] MrEdwardNigma: you look through the bag
[20:22] Happy: (i swear, if there are pieces of boy in there… )
[20:22] MrEdwardNigma: there'zs rope in it, whetting stones, a grapnel hook, a club, a second set of blankets, some tinder and flint, weights
[20:23] MrEdwardNigma: clothes too
[20:23] Shadowcaller: *gets up from bed, looking to see what the others are doing*
[20:23] Murska: 'Okay, case solved for our part then?'
[20:24] Shadowcaller: *Cessie enters the room* "What are you doing? Is this little kidnapping mystery coming to an end?"
[20:25] Happy: "Hardly. We know they aren't in the inn anymore."
[20:26] Shadowcaller: "Just great, do they really think their sons kidnappers would stay in the inn after they kindnapped their son?"
[20:26] Happy: "They don't think anything." Happy says. "He knows."
[20:26] Happy: She turns and stalks back into Mr Burns room.
[20:27] Murska: Aegnor follows.
[20:27] Shadowcaller: *follows happy* "What are you doing?"
[20:27] Shadowcaller: "We can't enter their room." *whisper*
[20:28] Happy: Happy walks right in.
[20:28] MrEdwardNigma: burns looks up
[20:28] Shadowcaller: *stays outside* /great/
[20:28] Happy: She grabs Mr Burns by the shirt and hauls him to his feet. "Look at his papers, Aegnor."
[20:28] Murska: Aegnor does so.
[20:28] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks quite shocked /oh no…/
[20:29] MrEdwardNigma: the papers have figures on them
[20:29] MrEdwardNigma: and names of chemicals
[20:29] Murska: (figures.)
[20:29] MrEdwardNigma: "what are you doing? Hawk!"
[20:29] MrEdwardNigma: "Hawk! They're attacking me!"
[20:29] Happy: "Who took the kid? You know, don't you?"
[20:29] MrEdwardNigma: there are loud footsteps on the stairs
[20:29] Murska: 'Apparently your son has left the building. And Happy here came to certain conclusions.'
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "Um happy, maybe we shoul-"
[20:30] MrEdwardNigma: "Are you insane woman?!"
[20:30] Murska: Aegnor walks to the door.
[20:30] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk appears, axe drawn
[20:30] MrEdwardNigma: "what're you doing?" he asks
[20:30] MrEdwardNigma: "Hawk!" burns shouts
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (I'm still outside the room
[20:30] Shadowcaller: )
[20:30] Murska: If he attempts to attack, Aegnor throws his readied daggers and draws a sword.
[20:31] Murska: 'We're investigating.'
[20:31] MrEdwardNigma: "What're you doing you little sun of a-"
[20:31] MrEdwardNigma: "Investigating? leave Mr. Burns alone you scum!"
[20:31] Happy: "What kind of person doesn't search for their own son? The kind of person who already knows where he is."
[20:31] MrEdwardNigma: "Hawk! Help! she's gone mad!"
[20:31] Shadowcaller: (I think I stand behind Hawk right now unless you have something agaisnt that)
[20:31] MrEdwardNigma: the woman sleeps through all this
[20:31] Shadowcaller: *against
[20:32] MrEdwardNigma: (I do)
[20:32] MrEdwardNigma: (he's not stupid)
[20:32] Murska: 'Hmf. Told you letting us to search alone was a bad idea.'
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (Lets say i'm inside the room then, and you missed that:P)
[20:32] MrEdwardNigma: "Yeah, letting the kidnappers look for the kid, stupid"
[20:32] MrEdwardNigma: (you're out in the hallways, with aegnor)
[20:32] Happy: "Who have you pissed off? Tell us about these associates of yours?"
[20:32] Murska: (I was at the door!)
[20:33] MrEdwardNigma: (yeah, and the door is in the hallway)
[20:33] Murska: 'Kidnappers? Hah. You probably did it yourself.'
[20:33] Murska: (The door is between the room and the hallway, right?)
[20:34] MrEdwardNigma: "enough of this. get out of the way chipmunk"
[20:34] MrEdwardNigma: hawk steps forward
[20:34] Happy: Happy draws a dagger and puts it to Mr Burns's throat.
[20:34] Happy: "Talk. Now."
[20:34] Murska: 'Just calm down. She might do something rash.'
[20:34] Shadowcaller: "Oh dear…"
[20:34] Murska: (I'm inside the room, blocking the door, so he can't swing properly with his axe.)
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: "Hawk!"
[20:35] Shadowcaller: (I have no idea where I am)
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk shoves Aegnor aside since he won't move
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: cessie si already out of the way
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: next to the door
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: outside
[20:35] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[20:35] Happy: Happy pulls Mr Burns to her in the classic hostage pose
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk enters the room
[20:35] Murska: (Um.)
[20:35] Murska: (I was holding two daggers.)
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: "hawk! stop this madwoman!"
[20:35] Murska: (He just walks to me and pushes me away?)
[20:35] MrEdwardNigma: "Let him down, woman"
[20:36] MrEdwardNigma: (yes, he does)
[20:36] Murska: (…)
[20:36] MrEdwardNigma: (are you stabbing him then?)
[20:36] Murska: (Nah, probably not. But is he suicidal or something? He thinks we're evil.)
[20:37] MrEdwardNigma: (He's also a really big guy with an axe)
[20:37] MrEdwardNigma: (he might just be assuming you're not stupid)
[20:37] Murska: (And he's stepping to a close enough range to make said axe useless against a guy with two daggers)
[20:37] Murska: (Also through a door so he can't even swing.)
[20:37] MrEdwardNigma: (axe ain't useless at this range)
[20:37] Happy: Anyway, Happy's holding Mr Burns with his back to her chest and her daggre at his throat.
[20:38] MrEdwardNigma: "Let him go"
[20:38] Happy: "I want to know why this man is trying so hard to prevent anyone finding his son."
[20:38] Murska: (Fine, let's assume Aegnor just steps to the side, flanking the man with Cessie)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (that don't have any weapons^^)
[20:38] Murska: (but has fireballs. :P)
[20:38] Murska: (Capable of blowing a man's head clean off)
[20:38] MrEdwardNigma: (or setting it on fire, at least)
[20:39] Happy: "He doesn't want to search, and he doesn't want anyone else to search. He hires people not to look, but to prevent anyone leaving. Which would be awfully convenient for the real kidnappers, who are long gone. He's afraid of someone."
[20:39] Murska: (Or concentrating the heat and condensing the fireball into a small ball, entering his brain and melting it)
[20:39] Happy: "But you know what?" *digs the point into his throat* "You need to be a lot more afraid of me, right now."
[20:40] MrEdwardNigma: "Let Mr. Burns go. he's a good man. You're a monster just for assuming he ahd anything to do with it. Hag"
[20:41] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk chuckles at his own joke
[20:41] Murska: Aegnor keeps ready to throw daggers at Hawk's eyes whenever necessary.
[20:42] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk's back is toward him by now
[20:42] Happy: "No."
[20:42] Happy: "Now drop your axe."
[20:42] MrEdwardNigma: "So what do you think you'll do woman?"
[20:42] MrEdwardNigma: "Stab poor Mr. Burns?"
[20:42] Murska: well then he is ready to sink an axe into the back of his head.
[20:43] MrEdwardNigma: Cessie sees Mercurius appear in the hallway, silent as a mouse
[20:43] Shadowcaller: /crap/
[20:43] Happy: "I don't have to kill him." *drags the dagger along his throat, breaking the skin*
[20:43] Murska: (No more guarding the door eh.)
[20:43] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh god!" Mr Burns yells
[20:43] Shadowcaller: /how did this happend…?/
[20:44] Murska: Aegnor keeps behind the wall so he can't be seen from the hallway.
[20:44] MrEdwardNigma: "Drop the knife, 'happy' "
[20:44] Murska: 'Drop the axe, 'Hawk''
[20:44] MrEdwardNigma: "cause if you hurt Mr. Burns, you've got nowhere to run"
[20:44] MrEdwardNigma: "I ain't dropping nothing"
[20:44] Murska: 'You're still assuming we'd for some reason run.'
[20:44] Happy: *looks at him scornfully* "Run? From you?"
[20:45] MrEdwardNigma: "What, you're helping this broad now?"
[20:45] Murska: 'I just want for us all to get going. But if you start threatening us…'
[20:45] Shadowcaller: Is ready to cast fireball if one of the mercs attack me, happy or Aegnor
[20:45] Murska: (Cessie better just blind them all or something, anyway)
[20:46] Murska: (Time to burn houses, again. :P)
[20:46] MrEdwardNigma: Mercurius makes a signal to Cessie that she should be quiet
[20:46] Shadowcaller: (I know, but if he charges I doubt it helps much)
[20:46] Murska: (If he can't see anything, he'll absutely die in combat.)
[20:46] Happy: Happy hisses close to Burns' ear "Talk. Now."
[20:46] MrEdwardNigma: "I'm not the one holding Mr. Burns hostage here. I'm not making any threats" hawk says
[20:46] Shadowcaller: "Um, can't we talk about this instead?"
[20:46] Happy: "I'd love to. You first, Burnsie."
[20:46] Murska: 'Well I'm not holding him hostage either. Now what's with him anyway? The points Happy makes are logical.'
[20:47] MrEdwardNigma: "let me go, madwoman!" Burns screeches
[20:47] Happy: Happy drags her dagger over his skin again.
[20:47] MrEdwardNigma: "What points?"
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "The people inside there are going to die if you suddenly attack." *low voice*
[20:47] MrEdwardNigma: Mr Burns cries in pain
[20:47] MrEdwardNigma: "Let him go!" Hawk bellows
[20:48] Murska: 'He isn't even trying to find his son and is instead attempting to help the kidnappers get away. What's with thaT?'
[20:48] MrEdwardNigma: "I know" mercurius whispers
[20:48] MrEdwardNigma: "He just lost his son, cut the man some slack"
[20:48] MrEdwardNigma: "everyone grieves in a different way"
[20:48] MrEdwardNigma: "Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if the hag cut the boy up"
[20:49] Murska: 'Well if that was the case, we'd just have left the inn earlier.'
[20:49] MrEdwardNigma: "You're mad just for travelling with a barrel of powder like that"
[20:49] Murska: 'I'm mad, that's true.'
[20:49] Happy: "Interesting. Grieving, eh? So you're so sure he's already dead that you've already given up?"
[20:49] MrEdwardNigma: "No-one left the inn, short stuff. That's what the barkeep says"
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "And then I'mtalking about you and your boss."
[20:49] MrEdwardNigma: "Please let me go!" Burns weeps
[20:50] MrEdwardNigma: the woman is still sleeping through all of this
[20:50] Happy: "Not until you talk."
[20:50] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, no. You all die if you attack Hawk or me. We're professionals. but I don't want you to die. or I know Hawk doesn't want you to at least. me, I don't really care" mercurius whispers
[20:50] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't have anything to talk about amdwoman!"
[20:50] Murska: 'People left the inn through the window in one of the rooms.'
[20:51] MrEdwardNigma: *madwoman
[20:51] MrEdwardNigma: "So why didn't you just come to us with that? Why'd you have to let the hag off her leash?"
[20:51] Murska: 'What leash? I'm just traveling with her, not gonna control her or anything.'
[20:52] MrEdwardNigma: "You're mad all the same. You should pick your companions better"
[20:52] Murska: 'Why? This way, it's interesting.'
[20:52] Happy: "I can do this all day." *another cut*
[20:52] Shadowcaller: "I doubt that, the people inside there have killed more "proffesionals" then you ever meet."
[20:53] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk looks at Aegnor. "Dear god, you're all bonkers"
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "I don't want anyone to die."
[20:53] MrEdwardNigma: "Hawk and me too" mercurius whispers, smiling
[20:54] MrEdwardNigma: "But Hawk doesn't like the killing. if it'd be me in there, I'd have had less patience"
[20:54] Murska: 'I might not fit into the narrow definition of a sane person used by so-called 'normal' people.'
[20:54] Murska: 'But then again, that's boring.'
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "Well people are going to die if you suprise them, don't you hear? She got a knife at your boss throat."
[20:54] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, I know. I'm just waiting here. With you"
[20:55] Murska: 'Apparently we're stuck. And I don't really want to burn any more stuff today.'
[20:55] Murska: 'Should we attempt to defuse the situation?'
[20:55] Happy: "As soon as he answers my questions, I'll let him go. Until then…" *another cut*
[20:55] MrEdwardNigma: "You're not gonna get anything out of him, you know. He didn't kidnap his own son. I'll let you get away with cutting him if you let him go now" hawk says
[20:55] MrEdwardNigma: "Yeah, defusion sounds good"
[20:55] Murska: 'Please, Happy, state one question at a time, clearly, and he'll answer them.'
[20:56] MrEdwardNigma: Mr Burns goes limp in Happy's hands
[20:56] Happy: "Who are the questionable associates your wife mentioned?"
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "As long as you don't move, neither will I."
[20:56] MrEdwardNigma: "If he's hurt, you're going to find your grave in this little town, Miss Happy"
[20:56] MrEdwardNigma: Mercurius nods
[20:57] Happy: (did Burns faint?)
[20:57] MrEdwardNigma: (yes)
[20:57] Shadowcaller: *is still prepared to blind him with light if he moves*
[20:58] Shadowcaller: (toward me that is)
[20:58] Murska: *is still prepared to add questionable amounts of different metal objects into Hawk's body*
[20:58] Shadowcaller: (oh and I can make the room go darker too)
[20:59] MrEdwardNigma: Mercurius doesn't move. he's waiting, daggers drawn. Smiling.
[20:59] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk doesn't move either, but he's tense
[20:59] Murska: 'Aw, now he fainted? This is boring. Someone want to play some music?'
[20:59] MrEdwardNigma: and clearly quite angry
[20:59] Happy: Happy drags the guy over and drops him non-too-gently on the bed next to his wife.
[21:00] MrEdwardNigma: as soon as she drops Burns the flat side of hawk's axe shoots out
[21:00] Happy: *ducks*
[21:00] MrEdwardNigma: and happy fails to dodge it
[21:00] Murska: (-.-)
[21:00] MrEdwardNigma: it knocks her into the wall
[21:00] MrEdwardNigma: and she faints
[21:00] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk grunts
[21:01] MrEdwardNigma: and turns towards Aegnor
[21:01] Murska: 'Hm.'
[21:01] MrEdwardNigma: "Now all of you, out of this room"
[21:01] Murska: 'Fine.'
[21:01] Murska: Aegnor picks up Happy and leaves.
[21:01] MrEdwardNigma: Mercurius enters the room but Hawk leaves, returning downstairs
[21:01] MrEdwardNigma: the door of the room slams shut
[21:02] Shadowcaller: "What happend?!"
[21:02] Murska: 'Happy got mad at the Burns guy for being such an idiot.
[21:02] Murska: 'Anyway, let's get going towards the tower, this is none of our business.'
[21:02] Shadowcaller: "Why… I was worried we were all going to die there."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "Can we leave now?"
[21:03] MrEdwardNigma: (who are you asking?)
[21:03] Shadowcaller: (Aegnor)
[21:03] Murska: 'I don't see why not.'
[21:03] Murska: Aegnor walks downstairs with Happy.
[21:03] Happy: *is still unconscious*
[21:04] Shadowcaller: *follows them*
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (is anyone standing at the door?)
[21:04] Happy: (I doubt they want us to stay :p)
[21:04] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk is at the front door
[21:04] Murska: Aegnor attempts to pass him.
[21:05] Shadowcaller: *is not following him as she sees Hawk*
[21:05] MrEdwardNigma: "Nobody's leaving until little Robbie is found" he growls
[21:05] MrEdwardNigma: "things haven't changed there"
[21:05] Murska: 'Didn't we JUST tell you they're gone long ago?'
[21:05] MrEdwardNigma: "I still think your friend did it"
[21:05] Murska: 'And I don't really care what you think, you ain't going to find Robbie from the inn since he has left the inn.'
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "Maybe we should try with reason this time instead of kidnappping people…."
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: "The window? psh, like anyone could jump out carrying a kid without getting hurt"
[21:06] Murska: 'Just toss the kid's body out first then?'
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk shook hsi head
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: "No… No, I won't believe that"
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: "Robbie's alive somewhere"
[21:06] Murska: 'Somewhere, but not in the inn.'
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "Well, he is not here."
[21:06] MrEdwardNigma: "he couldn't have left dammit!" Hawk shouts
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "And I thought you belived happy had killed him?"
[21:07] MrEdwardNigma: "I- I just don't know anymore. All I know is, if the kidnappers are still here, I can't let them slip through my fingers"
[21:07] Murska: 'Well, let's say there are two people. One leaves through the window, he catches the boy the other one throws him and then the last one leaves.'
[21:07] Murska: 'Anyway, the people next door from Burns' room have left the inn.
[21:08] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk laughs
[21:08] MrEdwardNigma: "I'm sure they haven't"
[21:08] Murska: 'Go check then? Sheesh.'
[21:09] MrEdwardNigma: "No, no. What I mean is, we're the people next door from Mr. Burns. Me and Mercurius"
[21:09] Shadowcaller: (aren't there any people entering the inn?)
[21:09] Murska: (hm. I thought the room we saw was next door.)
[21:09] Murska: (*shrug*)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "Lets be realistic here, you can't guard that door forever, this is a inn, people enters and leaves."
[21:10] MrEdwardNigma: (it was…)
[21:10] Murska: Aegnor walks to the fire, carefully sets Happy down.
[21:10] Shadowcaller: (oh…)
[21:10] Murska: (:P)
[21:10] Murska: (with more than two people sleeping in it, odd.)
[21:10] Shadowcaller: (Well my point still stands)
[21:10] MrEdwardNigma: (more than two? Where'd you get that idea?)
[21:10] Murska: He then starts trancing.
[21:11] Murska: (Well last session we established that every room has two beds
[21:11] Murska: (and there was someone sleeping on the floor aswell)
[21:11] MrEdwardNigma: (I wasn't here last session. That room had one bed for two people, as described)
[21:11] Murska: ('kay. I should maybe read the descriptions at some point=
[21:11] Shadowcaller: (no, I never said there was anyone sleeping at the floor:P)
[21:11] Shadowcaller: (I said the floor was slightly burned in one room
[21:12] MrEdwardNigma: (there was someone sleeping on the floor this session…)
[21:12] Murska: (Nigma said someone was sleeping on blankets or something)
[21:12] Shadowcaller: (oh)
[21:12] MrEdwardNigma: (pay attention, sheesh)
[21:12] Murska: (never!)
[21:12] Murska: (it's more fun to be ignorant of stuff, more human)
[21:12] MrEdwardNigma: (no wonder happy goes off on wild goose chases)
[21:12] Shadowcaller: (well, my character was not inside that room anyway.)
[21:13] Murska: (I'll be out for some four hours game-time unless someone wakes me)
[21:13] Shadowcaller: I practice some magic
[21:14] MrEdwardNigma: Happy wakes up after a while
[21:14] MrEdwardNigma: where-ever aegnor left her
[21:14] Murska: Downstairs. I don't know what furniture the place has
[21:14] Murska: but on something sittable.
[21:15] Shadowcaller: *hugs happy* "Why did you do that?!"
[21:15] Happy: "…ugh…
[21:15] Happy: "
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "You could have died…"
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "We could have died."
[21:15] MrEdwardNigma: some chairs and tables, and a fireplace
[21:15] MrEdwardNigma: and a bar
[21:15] Happy: "I don't know why…"
[21:15] Happy: "What happened?"
[21:15] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk mumbles something as Cessie hugs happy
[21:16] Murska: (Hm. We better gain some extra power soon, what with a very skilled and strong warrior being hit and one-shotted by a target she was facing, knew was hostile and wasn't in any way distracted from.)
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "You don't remember? You kidnapped a man bascially, using him as hostage."
[21:17] Happy: "No, I mean after that."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "I was so worried…"
[21:18] Happy: "Where's Aegnor? What happened with the idiot father?"
[21:18] MrEdwardNigma: (she was carrying burns, and he she's a barbarian. power, not guile. Plus, hawk happens to be pretty skilled)
[21:18] Murska: (She dropped Burns, duh. :P)
[21:18] MrEdwardNigma: hawk growls as he hears happy
[21:18] MrEdwardNigma: (on the bed, yeah, and as she was doing this she was knocked out. Duh)
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "He is in his room I think."
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "The father passed out or something…"
[21:19] Murska: (That is, the moment she lets go of a man the man is still in front of her but her hands, holding a weapon, are free.)
[21:19] Happy: "And no one has gone looking for the kid?"
[21:20] Murska: (Nobody cares about the kid, apparently.)
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "I don't know… I know he is not in the inn atleast."
[21:20] Happy: *gets to her feet*
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "Don't do anything stupid again now."
[21:21] Murska: (And I'm downstairs, trancing near the fire.)
[21:21] Happy: (Aren't we all downstairs?)
[21:21] Murska: (yup.)
[21:21] MrEdwardNigma: (yes)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (oh)
[21:21] Shadowcaller: ^^
[21:21] MrEdwardNigma: (I mean, the PCs and hawk)
[21:22] MrEdwardNigma: (and possibly the innkeep, but not in this room)
[21:22] Shadowcaller: (make sense)
[21:22] Happy: "I don't understand. Why is everyone still here instead of searching for Robbie?"
[21:23] Shadowcaller: "We can't go outside, and I won't leave your side until your better."
[21:23] Happy: "I'm *fine*" *eyeroll*
[21:24] Shadowcaller: "Besides, no kidnapper would be so stupid to keep thr hostage in the same house he kidnapped them in…"
[21:24] Shadowcaller: *the
[21:24] Happy: "And yet, we're locked in and can't leave?"
[21:25] Happy: "Hawk? What the hell is going on?"
[21:26] MrEdwardNigma: "Don't you talk to me, woman"
[21:26] Happy: "Why haven't you followed the kidnappers?"
[21:26] MrEdwardNigma: "cause they haven't left. that's why"
[21:26] MrEdwardNigma: "And i'm not running off so they can leave"
[21:26] Shadowcaller: /this is so stupid/
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "So the kidnapper grabs Robbie, hides him in the innn and then go to sleep?…"
[21:27] Shadowcaller: *inn
[21:27] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't know what happened, but I know all the doors were locked!"
[21:28] Happy: "What the… didn't you see the bag of tools in the room next door?"
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "I didn't see them atleast."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "What tools are you talking about happy?"
[21:29] MrEdwardNigma: "Those are mine"
[21:29] MrEdwardNigma: "Leave thel aloneé
[21:29] MrEdwardNigma: *leave them alone
[21:30] Happy: "Grappelling hook and rope. Easy enough to lower someone down out of the window." *glares*
[21:30] MrEdwardNigma: "Yeah, but that's my stuff. And mercurius'"
[21:31] Happy: "And what would decent folk need with stuff like that? The last guy I knew that travelled with that kind of gear liked to break into houses and burn them down."
[21:31] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk shrugs
[21:31] MrEdwardNigma: "The hook belongs to Mercurius"
[21:31] MrEdwardNigma: "It comes in useful from time to time"
[21:31] Happy: "So where were you two last night?"
[21:32] MrEdwardNigma: "In the bar, and later in our room. We're not under suspicion here"
[21:32] Shadowcaller: "Who else is here? There can't only be us."
[21:32] MrEdwardNigma: "You just keep accusing people who have nothing to do with it"
[21:32] Murska: (Aegnor'd have a couple of things to say… :P)
[21:33] MrEdwardNigma: "The innkeep said there were other guests"
[21:33] MrEdwardNigma: (would he?)
[21:33] Murska: (Indeed.)
[21:33] MrEdwardNigma: (?)
[21:33] Murska: (Anyway, he's sleeping.(
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (he is sleeping/trancing)
[21:33] Murska: (or trancing, whatever)
[21:33] Murska: (similar)
[21:34] Happy: "So if you didn't do it, and no one else in the inn did it, then what the hell do you think happened?"
[21:34] MrEdwardNigma: "Did I say no-one else did it? i'm quite sure someone else did it. maybe you"
[21:35] Happy: "Yeah sure. I've got him in my pocket."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "I sleept in the same room as her, she didn't leave it. She woke me up from nightmares form time to time."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: *from
[21:36] MrEdwardNigma: "You were sleeping, but you're sure she didn't leave? Now that doesn't make sense. besides, why should I trust you?"
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you missed that part of waking up? Besides…"
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *wakes Aegnor up*
[21:37] Murska: '..hm? They found something and let us out yet?'
[21:37] Happy: "You don't have to trust me! Use some fricking logic here. If I took the kid, what the hell did I do with him?"
[21:37] Murska: 'Eat him?
[21:37] Murska: '
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "You didin't sleep during the night right? Tell him that happy never left the room."
[21:37] Murska: 'At least nobody else came downstairs.'
[21:38] MrEdwardNigma: "Cut him up into pieces for all I know. Locked him up in a closet maybe"
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "So now you belive he is dead?"
[21:38] Murska: 'So, we haven't gotten anywhere here?'
[21:38] MrEdwardNigma: (well, there WERE people downstairs…)
[21:38] Murska: (there were?)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "And if he were on a closet we could have found him by now."
[21:38] MrEdwardNigma: "I don't know where he is. But I know the doors were locked"
[21:38] Murska: (Well, did anyone leave the inn while I was there?)
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "This is hardly a castle or something."
[21:39] MrEdwardNigma: "Really? Would you have? Seems like you haven't looked a whole lot. Only in our and mr. Burns' room, the two places not worth looking"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Seems you haven't looked a lot."
[21:39] MrEdwardNigma: (before closing time, sure. locals. After that only the innkeep)
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "You don't trust us anyway, why should we look?"
[21:39] Murska: 'Well, apparently nobody here cares about the kid since nobody wants to look for him.'
[21:40] MrEdwardNigma: "cause you ain't leaving until we have him back. besides, i'm not forcing you to look"
[21:40] Murska: (The innkeep left the inn?)
[21:40] Murska: 'So we'll be waiting here until the boy somehow magically appears in front of you since you're not looking?'
[21:40] MrEdwardNigma: (Well, he went to the kitchen and didn't come back. for all you know his room is there)
[21:40] Murska: 'Does anyone have any cards or something…'
[21:40] MrEdwardNigma: "Who said we weren't looking?"
[21:41] Murska: 'You, when we asked you to come with us to look.'
[21:41] Shadowcaller: "Where have you looked then?"
[21:41] MrEdwardNigma: "No, I am not looking. that doesn't mean no-one is looking"
[21:41] MrEdwardNigma: "I'm guarding the door"
[21:41] Murska: 'So there's a third or did you just start looking now?'
[21:42] Murska: 'Well, since someone is looking, all is fine. Why are we having this discussion?'
[21:42] MrEdwardNigma: "We just started looking; When we found out you guys weren't going to be any help"
[21:42] Murska: 'And before?'
[21:42] Murska: 'You expected some random strangers to want to help you?''
[21:43] MrEdwardNigma: "We thought you were going to help poor Mr. and Mrs. burns out, but all you did was attack the man and accuse him"
[21:43] Murska: 'And what about the kitchen door? The innkeep might be one of them, for all you know.'
[21:43] MrEdwardNigma: "We hoped for some kindness, that's all"
[21:43] MrEdwardNigma: "What about the kitchen door?"
[21:43] Murska: 'Have you guarded that?'
[21:44] MrEdwardNigma: "We did before Mercurius started looking. We can't be everywhere at once"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "So the innkeeper could have left by now?"
[21:44] Murska: 'And what about before you woke up, but after the boy was taken?'
[21:45] MrEdwardNigma: Hawk shrugs. "Yeah, I haven't seen him for a while. But he lives here. he'll be back"
[21:45] MrEdwardNigma: "Before we woke up we were sleeping" hawk growls
[21:45] Murska: 'And the kidnappers really wouldn't have left by then?'
[21:45] Murska: 'If the doors were locked, just open them by force and leave.'
[21:46] MrEdwardNigma: "They're still there, the doors. Not forced. Still locked"
[21:46] MrEdwardNigma: "We checked this morning"
[21:46] Murska: 'Doesn't that tell you something?'
[21:46] Murska: 'As in, the one with the KEY has opened them for the men?'
[21:46] MrEdwardNigma: "It tells me they're still here"
[21:47] Murska: 'Why would anyone stay here after kidnapping a kid.'
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: "the innkeep?"
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: there was a rumble on the stairs
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: and then a big ball of fur rolled down
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: somehow, it looked familiar
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: Mercurius followed
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: one dagger drawn
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: "Found him"
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: he said
[21:47] Murska: 'Okay, we'll be leaving then.'
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "Thank the gods…"
[21:47] Murska: Aegnor walks out.
[21:47] MrEdwardNigma: The ball of fur uncurled and looked up with sad puppy eyes
[21:48] MrEdwardNigma: it was the wolf they'd met earlier on the clouds
[21:48] Murska: (We've met a wolf?)
[21:48] MrEdwardNigma: aegnor finds the door locked
[21:48] Happy: (?)
[21:48] MrEdwardNigma: (yes. yes you did. In one of the cottages)
[21:48] MrEdwardNigma: (way back)
[21:48] Murska: (ah, that one)
[21:48] Murska: 'Innkeep! Open the door please.'
[21:48] Murska: 'We're hours late.'
[21:49] MrEdwardNigma: the innkeep isn't in the room
[21:49] Murska: (that's why I shout for him)
[21:49] Murska: (duh)
[21:49] MrEdwardNigma: the kitchen door opens and the innkeep emerges
[21:49] MrEdwardNigma: the wolf is slammed into a table by hawk
[21:50] MrEdwardNigma: "I didn't" it mumbles
[21:50] MrEdwardNigma: "yes?" the innkeep asked
[21:50] Murska: 'Key?'
[21:50] MrEdwardNigma: "What, you've found the killer?" he asked
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "I'm confused, what is that wolf?" (she don't remember it)
[21:51] Murska: 'No idea but apparently we're free to go.'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "Oh, we are?"
[21:51] MrEdwardNigma: "I didn't" the wolf begs as he's slammed into the table again
[21:51] Happy: "The killer? The boy is dead?" O.o
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: "You are" hawk says. "get out of here, and take the madwoman with you"
[21:52] Murska: 'We will once someone opens the DOOR!'
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: "I think he ate him" Mercurius said
[21:52] Murska: Aegnor is getting annoyed.
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: "right, right" the innkeep says
[21:52] MrEdwardNigma: and unlocks the front door
[21:52] Happy: "What, did you find bones?"
[21:53] MrEdwardNigma: "Swallowed him whole"
[21:53] Happy: "Wolves can't do that."
[21:53] MrEdwardNigma: "he's a wolf. I've read the stories"
[21:53] Murska: 'Drop it.'
[21:53] Murska: Aegnor opens the door and leaves.
[21:53] Happy: "Yeah, and I'm a barbarian. I've hunted wolves."
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "Umm…" *is unsure what to do*
[21:54] MrEdwardNigma: "He's no regular wolf" mercurius said, raising an eyebrow
[21:54] MrEdwardNigma: Aegnor walks out into the village
[21:54] MrEdwardNigma: people are cleaning up from the night before
[21:54] MrEdwardNigma: there are some people passed out in the street
[21:54] Murska: Aegnor waits for the others.
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "happy?"
[21:55] Happy: Happy looks torn, then finally runs after Aegnor.
[21:55] Shadowcaller: *follows happy*
[21:55] Murska: (It's probably time for Aegnor to faint or something since I got five minutes before the SC session. -.-)
[21:55] MrEdwardNigma: "No!" the wolf shouts, but is then silenced by a punch from hawk
[21:55] Murska: 'Time to leave this town and finally get going to the tower.'
[21:56] Murska: 'oh, and by the way, what was that wolf doing there? I thought it died in the fire.'
[21:57] Happy: "Why are we just leaving?"
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "I have no idea honestly…"
[21:57] Murska: 'Why should we stay?'
[21:57] Happy: "That boy! He could still be alive somewhere."
[21:57] Murska: 'If he is, they'll find him just as well as we would.'
[21:58] Murska: 'I could stay but those men are annoying.'
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "I don't think he was in the inn atleast."
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "If you got any clues where that child went I'm happy to hear them."
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "But otherwise we would jsut stumble around in the dark."
[21:59] Happy: "Mercurius passed him out the window to someone else."
[21:59] Happy: "Let's go look for tracks."
[21:59] Shadowcaller: *just
[21:59] Murska: 'Okay, fine.'
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "I go with you."
[22:00] Happy: Happy returns to the inn around the side where the window was and investigates
[22:00] MrEdwardNigma: the side where the window was was the front
[22:00] MrEdwardNigma: so you're already there :P
[22:00] Happy: then I look there
[22:00] MrEdwardNigma: you look for tracks, and find loads
[22:00] Shadowcaller: (how are the streets?)
[22:00] MrEdwardNigma: footsteps upon footsteps upon footsteps
[22:00] Shadowcaller: (I guess everyone is sleeping after that party?)
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "Finding anything?"
[22:01] Murska: 'I don't think we can find anything here.'
[22:01] Happy: any *right* below the window?
[22:01] Murska: 'The tracks'd mix up with all of the dancers.'
[22:01] MrEdwardNigma: plenty of people awake, cleaning up
[22:01] MrEdwardNigma: plenty right below the window
[22:01] MrEdwardNigma: it's part of the street
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "people was dancing outside the inn?"
[22:02] MrEdwardNigma: the streets are broad and irregular, with houses that stand alone
[22:02] Happy: "… I just thought…"
[22:02] Happy: *punches the wall*
[22:02] Murska: (The house is blown away)
[22:02] MrEdwardNigma: :P
[22:02] Murska: 'If we find any tracks of him, we'll investigate. But if not, we cannot do anything.)
[22:02] Shadowcaller: "I… I'm so sorry happy."
[22:03] Happy: "That poor boy…"
[22:04] Shadowcaller: "Maybe we can ask someone here?"
[22:04] Murska: 'You saw them last night. Do you think they'd remember anything?'
[22:04] MrEdwardNigma: there's a drunk guy nearby, passed out. if you like
[22:04] Murska: 'The kidnapping was pretty well planned.'
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "Well… looks like we only find dead ends then."
[22:06] Happy: *small voice* "… I understand."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "I really want to help this boy as much as you do but without clues we will find nothing…"
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "And I don't want to enter that inn ever again."
[22:07] Happy: Happy nods, and looks to Aegnor.
[22:08] Murska: 'Well. Anything to do in town before we go?
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm going to find some clothes to buy… I ask them if they have seen anything." *looks for a place where I can buy clothes*
[22:08] Happy: Happy docilely accompanies them wherever they choose to go.
[22:08] MrEdwardNigma: there's a house with a sign outside that depicts a weaving machine
[22:08] Murska: Aegnor follows the group.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: *enters that house*
[22:09] MrEdwardNigma: There is indeed a large weaving machine inside, with white thread on it
[22:09] MrEdwardNigma: every other piece of cloth in the store appears to a darkish red
[22:10] MrEdwardNigma: there's a stack of darkish red robes lying on the counter
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Exhuse me?…"
[22:10] MrEdwardNigma: and past the counter there's a door, leading to the private quarters
[22:10] MrEdwardNigma: someone emerges from the door as you announce your presence
[22:10] MrEdwardNigma: she is a young woman, blonde, and somewhat plump
[22:10] MrEdwardNigma: with big blue eyes
[22:11] MrEdwardNigma: and daisies embroided in her green and white dress
[22:11] MrEdwardNigma: "Hello?" she says
[22:11] Shadowcaller: "Hi" *smiles* "I was wondering if I can try out some clothes?"
[22:11] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh…"
[22:11] MrEdwardNigma: "Sure"
[22:12] MrEdwardNigma: she picks up a stack of the red robes and takes them out back
[22:12] MrEdwardNigma: "I'll get you some nice dresses if you like"
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "Thanks" *nods* "What do you got?"
[22:12] MrEdwardNigma: she returns after some rummaging with several dresses
[22:13] MrEdwardNigma: most of them resemble hers, but with less attention to detail
[22:13] MrEdwardNigma: there's also two purplish dresses
[22:13] MrEdwardNigma: a very light shade of purple
[22:13] MrEdwardNigma: one of them has darker purple waves running through the threads
[22:14] Happy: Happy just stands near the door, not paying attention.
[22:14] MrEdwardNigma: and there's a light yellowish robe, with a white collar
[22:14] MrEdwardNigma: she puts them on the counter and takes another stack of red robes out back
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "A lot of red clothes around here" I comment to nobody in perticular
[22:15] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, yes" she says, and smiles
[22:15] MrEdwardNigma: "that was the last stack though"
[22:15] MrEdwardNigma: there were still some of the robes lying around, but she was right, that was the last stack
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "Anything you think will fit my size? This dress is quite ruined."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "I'm looking for traveling clothes especially."
[22:20] MrEdwardNigma: "travelling clothes?"
[22:20] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, I think i've got something out bak, wait"
[22:20] MrEdwardNigma: she gathers up the last red clothes and then takes 'em out back, returning with a thick brown robe
[22:20] MrEdwardNigma: it looked sort of like a monk's garb, but more comfortable
[22:21] MrEdwardNigma: "these are the best travel robes i've made"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… looks good, its not too large no?"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I should try it out."
[22:22] MrEdwardNigma: "I think it's your size. It's made for a woman slimmer than me. i've got some other sizes I could get though"
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Let me try it, is there a room I can change in?"
[22:23] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, certainly. You can just go out back. i'll stay here with your friends"
[22:23] MrEdwardNigma: she smiles
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "Great." *Takes the robe and goes into the back*
[22:24] Murska: (Aegnor will be busy for most of the rest of the night, maybe checking in from time to time. He'll follow the group.)
[22:26] MrEdwardNigma: The room at the back has a big bench, a small table, some stairs up, a door (to the outhouse out back, visible through the windows), an open cupboard with only the red robes in it and some stuffed anials on top of the cupboard, as well as some flowers and woven trinkets on the wall, and an ornate dagger
[22:26] MrEdwardNigma: meanwhile, the woman asks you what you are doing in town (aegnor and happy, that is)
[22:26] Shadowcaller: How large is the window?
[22:27] MrEdwardNigma: the two windows are quite small
[22:27] Murska: 'We're just passing through.'
[22:27] MrEdwardNigma: slightly smaller than those in the inn upstairs even
[22:27] MrEdwardNigma: and quite slim
[22:27] Shadowcaller: *takes off shoes and sits down on the bench*
[22:28] MrEdwardNigma: "Stayed at the, eh, inn then? Or just arrivd this morning?"
[22:28] Murska: 'Stayed at the inn. We got free lodging after killing a group of bandits on the bridge.'
[22:28] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, that was you? I heard about that"
[22:28] Happy: Happy is silent, looking down.
[22:28] MrEdwardNigma: "You're heroes then?"
[22:28] MrEdwardNigma: she giggles
[22:28] Murska: 'Heh. Happy maybe.
[22:29] Shadowcaller: *looks around, to ensure that no one sees me*
[22:29] MrEdwardNigma: (no-one is present)
[22:29] MrEdwardNigma: "Happy? That's a strange name"
[22:29] Murska: 'Ask her.'
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (just olde habbit)
[22:30] MrEdwardNigma: "She's the one in the back then?"
[22:30] Murska: 'Yup. She's not on a good mood today.'
[22:30] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, she seemed fine to me"
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (thats me)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: *undresses*
[22:30] Murska: (oh right. retcon time)
[22:31] Murska: 'No, she's right here. *points at Happy*'
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh"
[22:31] Murska: (too busy. :P Should pay attention)
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: "So where does your name come from, Happy?"
[22:31] Shadowcaller: *takes on the robe
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Dose it fit? Is there any mirror here?
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: the robe fits quite well. It's somewhat largish, but that's not a problem
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: there's no mirror though
[22:31] MrEdwardNigma: just a faint reflection in the mirror
[22:31] Happy: "My parents." Happy says shortly.
[22:32] MrEdwardNigma: "They figured you'd be a happy lass?" she asks
[22:32] MrEdwardNigma: (window, srry)
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (I suspected so:P)
[22:32] Shadowcaller: /this will do I guess/
[22:33] Shadowcaller: /I'm not after something revealing anyway…/
[22:33] Murska: (off for a while)
[22:33] Shadowcaller: *twirls around a bit, trying to see if its a bit too heavy to move in*
[22:34] MrEdwardNigma: it's slightly heavier than your last outfit, but certainly not too encumbering
[22:34] MrEdwardNigma: warmer too
[22:34] Shadowcaller: *smiles* /perfect/
[22:35] Shadowcaller: *takes the old clothes with me and goes back to the first room again*
[22:35] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, you're all dressed! And look how pretty you are!"µ
[22:37] Shadowcaller: *looks a bit uncomfortable* "You think so? Well, i must say I like the fabric."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "What do you think happy?"
[22:37] MrEdwardNigma: "weaved it myself" she says, and curtsies
[22:37] Happy: Looks up without interest. "It's fine."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "How much for it then?"
[22:38] MrEdwardNigma: "Oh, just five pieces will do"
[22:39] Shadowcaller: *gives her that amount of money* "Thanks very much."
[22:39] MrEdwardNigma: "No problem. It was a pleasure serving you"
[22:40] Shadowcaller: *Friendly nod* "Farwell." *goes out*
[22:40] MrEdwardNigma: (okay, where are you all going now?)
[22:41] Shadowcaller: (out of town I would guess.)
[22:41] MrEdwardNigma: (moving on to the wizard?)
[22:41] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, Caster was his name)
[22:42] Happy: *Follows*
[22:42] MrEdwardNigma: okay, since we're moving out of town, it's pretty late and Aegnor isn't playing, maybe we can call it a day?
[22:42] Happy: okay
[22:42] Shadowcaller: Sure
[22:43] MrEdwardNigma: alright
