Mar 16

[21:21] Shadowcaller: "…so, what now?"
[21:22] Happy: "I don't know… I can't think straight."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "Your nervous too? I know I am" Cessie looks around the room
[21:23] Happy: "Let's take a walk. Maybe to the top of the tower and look around?"
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Cessi shrugs "Why not, I think I need to take my mind off all this for a moment."
[21:24] Happy: Happy walks out and looks for the steps upwards.
[21:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie follows her carefully
[21:25] Happy: "I don't know why the Hunter chose me. It doesn't make sense."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "Well, there are few things making sense right now."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "Maybe your more important then you think?"
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "I never really had a god, I think Helias picked me just to torrment me."
[21:27] Happy: "You said your first god abandoned you?"
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "Well, its was not like he was there in the first place."
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "I just assumed he did when Helias begun listening to my pleas."
[21:31] Happy: "Helias… he's not very nice."
[21:32] Shadowcaller: "He takes care of the outcasts, those who hide."
[21:32] Shadowcaller: "Like me."
[21:33] Happy: "Does he take care of you?"
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Nope, to him I'm just another container of knowledge."
[21:35] Happy: "And he's cruel to you."
[21:35] Happy: "I'm sorry I pushed you to talk to him."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "Thats the lot of the outcasts, we can't demand more."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "We have to take whats offered to us."
[21:35] Happy: "But you didn't have anything before."
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I had? Maybe I just didn't notice it since I took it for granted?"
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "Now I talk with the god that helps evil druids…"
[21:38] Happy: "Maybe it would be better to be like Aegnor, and not have a god at all."
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "He helped me, to a price."
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "Its better then nothing I guess."
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "But instead of a helper, you got a trader."
[21:40] Shadowcaller: *Cesie looks out at the horizon, the wind throwing her hair back.*
[21:42] Happy: "If we can stop the druids, it will be worth it. Right?"
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "Perhaps…"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I need to change back to whoever I was before I went into exile?"
[21:46] Happy: "Do you want to?"
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, I hardly know who I am now."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "And I don't know if there is any difference between who I was then, and who I am now."
[21:49] Happy: "I can't go back. I thought before that everyone was dead. But now I know."
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "…did you want to know?"

[21:58] Happy: Happy buries her face in her hands. "I abandoned them, Cessie."
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "No, you can't have, you are not like that. I know you."
[21:59] Murska: In the meanwhile, Aegnor asks Caster for somewhere to get food from.
[21:59] Shadowcaller: "Try the kitchen, I always get a bit of night-snack down there."
[21:59] Murska: 'Right.'
[22:00] Murska: Aegnor goofs off towards the kitchen, intent on devouring things that hopefully consist of edible materials.
[22:00] Shadowcaller: You see the small creature waiting for you…
[22:01] Murska: Aegnor ignores it and makes for the door, behind which the piles of foodstuffs await.
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "Hey, don't ignore me!"
[22:01] Murska: 'Oh, right, you. You got busted by your god. Better luck next time.'
[22:02] Happy: "I wanted to get away from the plague, Cessie. So when he told me I should leave — it wasn't very hard for him to persuade me."
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "But… you got for help right? Thats why you ran."
[22:04] Shadowcaller: "I can still help you elf, I know whats going on."
[22:04] Murska: Aegnor is happily piling food onto a plate, if he finds one.
[22:05] Shadowcaller: You find one
[22:05] Shadowcaller: And put food on it
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Then you eat the food
[22:05] Happy: Happy is silent
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Then you take a breat
[22:05] Shadowcaller: *breath
[22:05] Shadowcaller: and another one (:P)
[22:06] Shadowcaller: (ill just stop now)
[22:06] Murska: Aegnor takes a fruit… and EATS IT.
[22:06] Shadowcaller: *Epic moment occurs*
[22:06] Murska: *epic camera trickery*
[22:06] Murska: ('Everything as planned.')
[22:07] Murska: Aegnor then takes MORE food. And eats that too!
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "Don't blame yourself happy, I'm sure there was other things you can't rememeber."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: *puts hand on happys back*
[22:09] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels satisfied
[22:09] Happy: brb laundry
[22:10] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[22:12] Murska: After eating enough, Aegnor goes off to search for Happy and Cessie.
[22:12] Murska: (Hmpf. Might be short for me, don't be suprised if I disappear. I'm avoiding bustance of people who want me to educate myself while being awake)
[22:14] Shadowcaller: You find them at the highest part of the tower, looking over the surroinding area
[22:14] Happy: (back)
[22:14] Murska: 'Hi there. Was looking for you.'
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "Hi…"
[22:15] Happy: Happy smiles at Aegnor, but he can probably see that she's been crying.
[22:15] Murska: 'The memories, eh…' Aegnor walks to them.
[22:16] Happy: "Yeah…"
[22:16] Murska: Aegnor takes a look at the surrounding lands, silent.
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I should get a hair cut?" Cessie says, trying to change the subject.
[22:18] Murska: 'I like your hair. Of course, what with your profession, you might want a less flammable version.'
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "I always try to keep it short, I think its a bit too long now."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Happy, what do you think?"
[22:20] Happy: *looks* "Um, yeah, I guess."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "So I should keep it short then?"
[22:21] Happy: "If that's what you like."
[22:21] Happy: *absently tugs at her own long hair* "I usually just braid mine to get it out of the way."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Well, I asked of your opinion."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: (how long hair do happy h?)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: *have
[22:22] Happy: (happy's hair is mid-back)
[22:24] Shadowcaller: (Okay, Cessie's is almost at her shoulder now)
[22:25] Murska: Aegnor falls silent again. The mood doesn't seem to really improve.
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (How long hair do Aegnor have?:P)
[22:26] Murska: (I dunno. I'd say pretty short. (RED ANIME SPIKES! MY HAIR SAYS THAT'S EPIC! :P))
[22:27] Shadowcaller: (…)
[22:27] Shadowcaller: (Your not getting red anime spikes.)
[22:27] Murska: (aww. :P)
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (pick a normal hair cut and stick with it.)
[22:29] Murska: (Somewhat messy, not very long red hair then.)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (thats better, I figure all our hair cuts would be messed up by now)
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "GOt anything on your mind Aegnor?"
[22:34] Happy: *poke*
[22:35] Shadowcaller: (maybe his parents took him anyway?)
[22:36] Murska: (dodged a bust)
[22:36] Shadowcaller: (a bust? o.O)
[22:36] Murska: 'I'm just thinking of all that's happened recently.'
[22:37] Murska: (talked my parents into going back to sleep… their hearing can't hear the noise my computer makes when it's on, so I just closed the screen. :P)
[22:37] Shadowcaller: (Sounds like your in the middle of a undercover mission:P)
[22:37] Murska: (:P)
[22:38] Happy: "At least we have a purpose now."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Not exactly the kind I wanted thought."
[22:38] Murska: 'Saving people from a bunch of jerks, what better purpose is there?'
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "Well, I somehow wish that none of this had happend."
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "Well, beside meeting you."
[22:40] Murska: (darn ninja)
[22:40] Murska: (:P)
[22:40] Shadowcaller: ()
[22:43] Happy: "They've killed so many already. The people in Bearstead were so kind to us."
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "That… I wish we could have prevented it."
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "Somehow."
[22:44] Murska: 'We will avenge it.' Aegnor is still looking away, his hand clenches into a fist.
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "What is revenge… it will not change anything."
[22:45] Murska: 'It will prevent them from ever doing it again. It will save the countless thousands who are still alive.'
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "Yes, but vengence itself will not do anything."
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "I'm doing this to prevent more damage."
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "Otherwise I would have let the law deal with it."
[22:47] Murska: 'And am I a worse person for doing it also because I hate and despise the enemy?'
[22:47] Shadowcaller: *makes cookies*
[22:47] Shadowcaller: Ops wrong chat

[22:47] Happy: "No, you're not. I hate them too."
[22:48] Murska: (xD *eats Cessie's cookies*)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: (shakes fist at)
[22:49] Shadowcaller: "Well, I for one don't think any action should be done with hate."
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "How can we know how to stop?"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "We could lose control…"
[22:50] Happy: "We stop when they're all dead."
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "There is a difference between justice and vengence."
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "I would have turned over those druids to the law if I could, but this is war so…"
[22:51] Happy: "What law? The law is only the person with the strongest army."
[22:52] Murska: Aegnor's fists are still clenched. His posture is tense, but he doesn't say anything.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "Where I'm from, we have laws that tells you what you can and can't do."
[22:52] Happy: "But who enforces them?"
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "The soldiers of the empire, sometimes the wizards."
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "How did it work where you live?"
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "There must have been laws right?"
[22:55] Happy: Happy puts a hand on one of Aegnor's fists. "Within the tribe, the grandmothers arbitrated the law, but the warriors enforced it."
[22:57] Happy: "Some offenses were punished by beatings, some by exile, some by death."
[22:57] Shadowcaller: Grandmothers?
[22:58] Happy: "Not literally. The older women of the tribe. Not all of them actually had grandchildren."
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "Oh… we had leadersof both genders, whoever was of nobel blood and had the gift of magic."
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "But death and exile? Sounds like cruel punishments?"
[23:00] Murska: 'Noble blood… I've never understood how someone's ancestors affect his suitability for command.' Aegnor seems to have slightly calmed down by Happy's touch.
[23:01] Happy: "They weren't often needed."
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "Magic comes from the blood, why could not leadership come from it?"
[23:02] Murska: 'Magic isn't exclusively a bloodline ability, and neither is leadership, command talent, management skills or any other abilities that should dicatate who leads.'
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "For you elves maybe, you all seems to have the gift of magic."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "And punishments should not be deadly."
[23:04] Murska: 'So you think we should just herd up those druids and put them in jail?'
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "Magic can contain them."
[23:05] Murska: 'And what kind of life would it be for them? An eternity in a cell?'
[23:05] Murska: '…indeed, I can see the good side of this idea.'
[23:05] Happy: "That wasn't an option in the tribe. How do you lock up someone when you are always on the move?"
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "Well, we help our prisoners, our goal is to reform them."
[23:06] Murska: 'It would be easier and more effective for everyone just to kill them. Maybe their lifeforce would do something useful afterwards.'
[23:07] Happy: Happy shrugs. "That's what the beatings were for. To teach them a lesson. Put them back on the right path. Usually it worked."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to be a bit shocked "Do you really think a beating would set someone straight?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "And who are we to decide who to live and die anyway?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "The state should never set themselves in that position."
[23:09] Happy: "But if someone is a danger to your tribe, why would you let them live?"
[23:09] Murska: 'Life for a life. The correct punishment for someone killing an innocent on purpose is death. Anything less is just being merciful.'
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "…but if it was a accident? Or if the person was mad?"
[23:10] Murska: 'Those are reasons to be merciful.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "You are trying a very simpel sulution to a very complex problem."
[23:10] Murska: 'The simplest way is often the best.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "How can we always be sure that they have killed someone?"
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "Right now its obvious but in other cases…"
[23:11] Murska: 'Isn't that what magic is there for?
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "Magic is not used in court."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Since it cna be faked."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: *can
[23:12] Murska: 'So can anything else.'
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Exactly! Thats why we don't kill people."
[23:12] Happy: "But what if you let that person live, and they take more lives?"
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "We lock them up, as I said."
[23:13] Murska: 'Imprisoning a living being for the rest of their life is a far more horrible fate.'
[23:13] Shadowcaller: "Well, they are hardly alone there."
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "And we try to reform them, so maybe they can live on the outside again some day."
[23:14] Happy: "Life is very different where you live. We don't have any way of locking people up, unless we dragged them about in chains."
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "Well… we got that option atleast."
[23:15] Murska: 'Your laws seem to hold a person's life to be the most important and valuable thing there is.'
[23:15] Happy: "But there isn't any law here, is there, on the tree? Just within the villages."
[23:16] Happy: "They can't even keep their roads safe without hiring mercenaries."
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Yes, if we kill those who we take care of, are we any better then them?"
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Well, I'm not saying this tree should have our rules."
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "i'm just saying… thats the best way."
[23:17] Murska: 'I disagree, but we won't get anywhere with this argument.'
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "Why? You kill people you think are murderers?"
[23:18] Murska: 'I kill people I know hurt people who don't hurt other people.'
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Its not always that easy, if you did that where I live, you would get arrested."
[23:19] Happy: "Cessie, your system only works when there's a higher authority to enforce the law. There is no such authority here."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "Well yes, this tree don't have my system."
[23:20] Murska: 'It only works when there are enough people willing to take care of those who have killed, raped and mutilated people important to them. Those kinds of people are rare.'
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean?"
[23:23] Murska: 'I know that if someone killed you two and turned your bodies into abominations, I wouldn't want for that person to be put into some jail, to be maybe released some time in the future.'
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "…Well we assume people can get better."
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Otherwise they stay there forever of course."
[23:24] Happy: "Better? YOu think someone who would violate someone's humanity in that way can get better?" Happy stares incredulously.
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "If they don't get better, they stay in prison forever."
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "As I said."
[23:24] Murska: 'And I'd rather kill them.
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "Maybe they were brianwashed? Controlled by magic? You never know."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: /brainwashed
[23:25] Happy: "But there is no prison for them. So it doesn't matter."
[23:26] Shadowcaller: "Not here no… but it would be good to be home again thought, after all this."
[23:27] Happy: "Do you want to go home then? After we kill the druids?"
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "I don't know… I can't go home you know?"
[23:28] Murska: 'And I don't have a home. Because of those druids, or people like them. Did you know that?'
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "I can't feel like you Aegnor…"
[23:30] Happy: "It was the druids who killed your family?" Happy asks in a soft voice.
[23:30] Shadowcaller: "But I'm sorry for what happend. Not that it will change anything…" *turns away*
[23:31] Murska: Aegnor looks down. 'Sorry for bringing that up. I guess we should start preparing for the journey or something.'
[23:31] Happy: "You don't have to be sorry. You know we're here for you."
[23:32] Murska: 'It doesn't matter. I'm over it.'
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "Time heals all wounds…"
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "So, what are we going to do then?"
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "We should get those magic items hee talked about."
[23:35] Murska: 'We still haven't talked to Ai about the plan, have we?'
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "This place must be filled with them."
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "…who is going to talk with him?"
[23:37] Happy: "Shouldn't we all go, to make sure we all understand what we're doing?"
[23:38] Shadowcaller: "…well I have to met him sooner or later."
[23:39] Happy: "I thought you said he didn't do anything to you?"
[23:39] Shadowcaller: "Well… he makes me nervous."
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "He is very different from me, if you know what I mean?"
[23:41] Happy: "Very different," Happy says with a smile.
[23:41] Murska: 'Indeed, there might be some slight contradictions in your life philosophies, now that I think of it…'
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "I rather talk with Kilia, but Ai first I guess."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Are you coming?"
[23:44] Murska: 'Of course.'
[23:44] Murska: I suppose they go.
[23:44] Happy: Happy stays with them
[23:45] Shadowcaller: As they go doww the stair case they can hear a voice calling for them (that Aegnor regonizes as the creatures)
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Hey you!"
[23:45] Murska: 'What, you again?'
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "WHo?"
[23:46] Murska: 'The spy that god of yours was talking about.'
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "You, Cessie is your name right?"
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "…"
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "COme one, I promise I be nice, I can help you."
[23:47] Murska: 'We should get going.'
[23:47] Happy: "That's a spy for Helias?"
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "I'm not really… I given up on him okay?"
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "Once you fail, your nothing to him."
[23:49] Shadowcaller: The creature looks at you with puppy eyes (as well asa lizard can do that)
[23:49] Shadowcaller: *as a
[23:49] Murska: 'So now you got nothing better to do than to sit in a cage, good, we get it. We should get to travelling if we are to prevent them from murdering more innocents.'
[23:49] Shadowcaller: "But I can help you with that!"
[23:50] Happy: "How?"
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "Um… I can sneak around and stuff."
[23:50] Murska: 'And that helps us travel faster how exactly?'
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "Make myself invisible."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "I'm not that large, you can take me with you."
[23:51] Murska: 'The problem is mostly that we have no way of trusting you.'
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "I can make magic tricks too."
[23:52] Happy: "But can it really hurt us, if it can't be trusted?"
[23:53] Murska: 'It could reveal us to our enemies. And it could just take off somewhere.'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Why would I do that? They would just use me for experiments."
[23:54] Murska: 'How should we know about your motives?'
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "Er.. I don't want to die here, and if you realease me I serve you unquestionly?" The creature smiles.
[23:56] Murska: Aegnor sighs. 'A question of trust. Someone else decide, I just don't like the thing for some reason.'
[23:56] Happy: Happy looks at Cessie.
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "I don't know…"
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "It *could* be useful."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Yes, yes." The creature nods.
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "But I'm not really good at tell what peoples intentions are."
[23:59] Happy: Happy walks over to the cage, unlocks it, and tries to grab the creature inside and lift it to eye level with her.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: The creature is grabbed
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Ahh!"
[00:00] Happy: She stares him in the eyes. "If you betray us, I'll snap your neck. Okay?"
[00:00] Murska: 'You should be able to read her intentions.'
[00:00] Shadowcaller: The creature looks around in panic and then finally at you "Ehh… okay mistress."
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "A tree should be able to read her intentions…"
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (cessie)
[00:02] Happy: "Good." Happy sets it down.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: THe creature stands there for a while, shaking
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Ehm… so what are we supposed to do mistress?"
[00:04] Happy: "My name is Happy, not Mistress. What's your name?"
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "I'm Iwi." The creature seems nervous as he makes some kind of nosie with his tail
[00:06] Happy: "Okay, Iwi, we're going to talk to Ai about our plans."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "…okay. I stay."
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Lets get this over with" (Cessie)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "Ai awaits…"
[00:18] Happy: They proceed, until they find him then, I guess
[00:18] Murska: (So, we better wrap this up pretty soon. After all, sleep is something I have to do tonight, for a while, at least.)
[00:19] Shadowcaller: (after or before we talked to Ai?)
[00:19] Murska: (After)
[00:19] Shadowcaller: Downstairs you find Kilia, but no one else of the ogds servants
[00:20] Shadowcaller: *gods
[00:23] Happy: "We're looking for Ai. Have you seen him?"
[00:23] Shadowcaller: Kilia looks up "Not what I know off, I bet he is out there tempting mortals as usual, someone should put a stop to it…"
[00:24] Happy: "Yeah, we'll get right on that."
[00:24] Shadowcaller: *of
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "I hope you will, his ideas of helping people are wrong."
[00:26] Shadowcaller: (We go out I guess?)
[00:26] Murska: (yep, continue the search)
[00:26] Shadowcaller: Outside you can see a small gathring… around what you persume to be Ai.
[00:28] Happy: Go there
[00:29] Shadowcaller: You can hear Ai's soothing voice in the distance "I can see your deepest wish Jim, do you wish me to fullfill it?"
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "I… I don't know."
[00:31] Happy: Continue approaching the group.
[00:31] Shadowcaller: Sonn you hear a voice behind you, its unmisstakable Kilia "Don't do it Jim, you should not go too deep inside your own desires."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: Ai goes silent
[00:33] Happy: "Ai, can we talk to you?"
[00:34] Shadowcaller: Ai looks at Kilia before his eyes goes down to you "Very well, I am at your desire."
[00:36] Happy: *leads Ai away from the gathered group*
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Ai seems a bit depressed, "So, I will assume you want something from em?"
[00:38] Happy: "What's wrong?"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "I'm being blocked by the rigid type over there." *he nods at Kilias direction.
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "She don't allow me to do my call in this world…" *he seems to take this hard*
[00:42] Happy: "What will happen when we come up against the druids? Won't you feel the need to fulfill their desires?"
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "I wish to help the world, their desires is to burn it."
[00:44] Murska: 'We've decided that we have to do some guerilla warfare to stop them from killing more people and adding them to their army. The main goal would be to assassinate the druids. Want to come?'
[00:45] Shadowcaller: "If that is your desire my master." She bows, showing off a bit too much of herself
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "May I ask… how will this work?"
[00:50] Shadowcaller: (… thats odd, my cat is snoring)
[00:53] Happy: *pokes Murska*
[00:53] Murska: (arg so sleepy…)
[00:54] Happy: (then go to bed :P)
[00:54] Murska: (got to hold for one conversation…)
[00:54] Shadowcaller: (holy crap, its 2,.00 AM o.O)
[00:54] Murska: 'We now know roughly where they are, so the plan is to distrupt their plans as much as possible and hopefully stop them from killing more innocents to add to their army.'
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "Where would I fit into this plan…. Master?" She smiles as she add that last part.
[00:57] Murska: 'You seem, to me, the most capable of distracting them and being quiet, instead of, say, challenging the whole enemy army and trying to purge them with holy fire.'
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "You know I am master, I can do anything for you."
[00:58] Shadowcaller: She seems quite excited about this
[00:58] Murska: 'Do you have to call me that?' Aegnor seems uncomfortable.
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "Ohh.. but you are kind of my master now see? Ordering me around, making me do things."
[00:59] Murska: 'It's not an order! We're just asking.'
[01:00] Shadowcaller: "So nice of the master isn't? Taking pity of poor little me" *giggles*
[01:01] Happy: Happy gives Ai a puzzled look. "Do you do that a lot? Change personalities?"
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean dear? I have not changed at all, I was just playing you see? I can read you."
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "…Am I the only one that is really creeped out by this?" *whispers* (Cessie)
[01:03] Happy: "Okay, maybe your underlying personality didn't change, but the way you come across to others does."
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "Well… from what I have learned, the more uneasy you are about the things I play on, the more you secretly desire it." *smile*
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "I know you are sweety." *nods at Cessie*
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "…"
[01:05] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I should just leave?" (Cessie)
[01:06] Happy: "Leave. Cessie. Alone."
[01:06] Shadowcaller: Ai wimpers and looks deeply ashamed "Sorry I just wanted to play a bit…"
[01:07] Shadowcaller: "I never meant anything bad."
[01:07] Happy: "Some people *desire* to keep their *desires* repressed, okay?"
[01:09] Murska: (some people *desire* sleep)
[01:10] Shadowcaller: Ai seems to grow smaller before your eyes "So sorry… just not used to that you know?"
[01:10] Shadowcaller: (go to bed!)
[01:10] Murska: (not before we're in an endable location!)
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "Just playing… dumb Ai…"
[01:10] Murska: (unless someone can control Aegnor for the rest of the conversation)
[01:11] Shadowcaller: (how is he going to react?)
[01:11] Happy: "Do you want to help us stop the druids?"
[01:11] Murska: (Tries to get the conversation back on track with the journey thing, also is uncomfortable of the word 'master' due to previous experiences. Oh, and is now un-GBing his avatar)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: *Ai nods slowly*
[01:12] Happy: "You don't have to."
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "But I want to help… to make it up?"
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "I hurt you… I cna feel it."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "Ai was just getting caught in the play…"
[01:14] Shadowcaller: *can
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "Some like that you know?"
[01:15] Murska: (okay, bed, cya)
[01:15] Happy: (goodnight)
[01:15] Shadowcaller: (good night)
[01:15] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
Session Close (Group Conversation 26291): Tue Mar 17 01:15:36 2009

[01:17] Happy: Happy feels bad for Ai.
[01:17] Happy: "You shouldn't put your life at risk just for that. Only if you really believe in what we're doing."
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "I would not die, Ai is smart enough to return at the right time you know?"
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "Back home."
[01:21] Happy: Happy nods. "Then we want your help. But you don't have to play games with us."
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "Ai promise that… playing nice?"
[01:23] Happy: "Thank you," Happy says, and smiles at (him? her? which way does she see Ai now?)
[01:24] Shadowcaller: (male, you always see Ai as male, unless your more attracted to females that is, or maybe something in between if your bi.)
[01:24] Shadowcaller: (it goes by desire really, if you need a female friend, Ai is female)
[01:25] Happy: (so she can see a male while Aegnor sees a female?)
[01:25] Shadowcaller: (exactly)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "You see how she is manupilating you right?" Kilia is standing right behind you.
[01:30] Happy: "How is it manipulation? We came to ask for help and Ai agreed to help us."
[01:30] Shadowcaller: "DOn't you notice how she is speaking like a baby? Third person?"
[01:31] Shadowcaller: Ai glares at Kilia
[01:33] Happy: "Yes, I noticed."
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "Good, then maybe you might learn some of her trickery, don't let her fool you with its acting…"
[01:34] Happy: "There is no deception going on here."
[01:34] Happy: "We asked for help, and Ai agreed to help us."
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Kilia nods "Very well, I might have missunderstood the situation then, it was a simple advice."
[01:36] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you can hear a cry in the distance, someone needs help
[01:37] Happy: *looks that way*
[01:37] Shadowcaller: In the distance you can see a woman, she is carrying something
[01:37] Shadowcaller: She is screaming
[01:37] Happy: *run that way*
[01:38] Shadowcaller: crying
[01:38] Shadowcaller: Kilia, Ai, Cessie, Aegnor and some others follow you
[01:38] Shadowcaller: The woman… seems to be carrying a child
[01:40] Happy: "What's wrong? What happened?"
[01:41] Shadowcaller: She is just crying, its hard to hear what she says
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "By Ataris will… its dead."
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "I- I can't heal it."
[01:41] Happy: (who said that?)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: (Kilia)
[01:42] Shadowcaller: And the child looks dead, its bleak and bloody
[01:43] Happy: Happy approaches the woman. "I'm sorry…"
[01:44] Shadowcaller: "She desires it to live again… I could make that happend."
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (Ai)
[01:44] Shadowcaller: THe woman is still sobbing, she seems unable to hear you
[01:45] Happy: Happy looks up, turning pale. "You can bring back the souls of the dead?"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: "A few times, yes."
[01:46] Shadowcaller: "But not all of them, is that correct Ai?"
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "So, if we can't ressurect all, none should…"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: (Kilia)
[01:48] Happy: Happy whispers to Ai. "If you can bring the child back, then do it."
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "I will try, but it will take some time."
[01:50] Happy: "Do you need help?"
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "The others can't be here, no other god can br present at the place."
[01:52] Shadowcaller: *be
[01:53] Happy: Happy looks at Kilia. "You'll have to leave."
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "…if you ressurect him, you need to ressurect anyone else that desire it."
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "What about all the people who died at that village?"
[01:55] Happy: "That doesn't make sense. Just because you can't right all the world's wrongs doesn't mean you shouldn't right the ones you can."
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "Death should be respected, people can't demand that their god should bring them back from the dead, its unatural."
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "It breaks the balance."
[02:00] Shadowcaller: "There are some lines that should not e crossed, there are reason we forbid Nega to ressurect people."
[02:00] Shadowcaller: *be
[02:01] Happy: "But…"
[02:01] Happy: Happy tries to remember if she ever heard teachings of Kuori on the subject.
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (To Kuori, its ones own choice, as long as you feel its right, its right.)
[02:02] Happy: "I don't care about the balance. I ccare about doing what's right."
[02:04] Shadowcaller: "For you, this moment yes, but what of all the others that wished to bring back their loved ones? Are you giving yourself the right to go over them?"
[02:04] Shadowcaller: "You can bring back one person, one in this world, and you choose this child?"
[02:05] Shadowcaller: "To me its none, or all."
[02:05] Shadowcaller: "…but I will respect your choice."
[02:06] Happy: Happy thinks of the man in her memories, whose life she took to spare him suffering. She doesn't remember his name, but she remembers her love for him.
[02:08] Shadowcaller: "Its your choice Happy… I don't know what to do either." (Cessi)
[02:08] Shadowcaller: "Kilia have a point… but you know how I am."
[02:08] Happy: "Bring the child back," Happy says.
[02:09] Shadowcaller: "…you will see that some lines should not be crossed Happy of the Hunter."
[02:09] Shadowcaller: "But I will respect your choice." (Kilia)
[02:10] Shadowcaller: She bows and then leaves
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "Hope you made the right decision now."
[02:10] Shadowcaller: (Cessie)
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "Should I start?" (Ai)
[02:11] Happy: Happy nods.
[02:11] Shadowcaller: Ai goes into a trance-like state
[02:11] Shadowcaller: He appears to be talking to something
[02:12] Shadowcaller: But you can't hear or maybe understadn the words he is speaking
[02:12] Shadowcaller: *understand
[02:13] Shadowcaller: You hear a voice in the distance, its seems to be aimed at you
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "You requested a wish?"
[02:14] Happy: "Me?"
[02:14] Shadowcaller: "You, I only hear mortals wishes."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "The price of worship you see?"
[02:16] Happy: "Who are you?"
[02:16] Shadowcaller: "Nega, who did you excpect? My servant did tell you everything right?"
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "I grant every mortal one wish, in return I get their worship."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "Sounds like a fair deal eh?"
[02:18] Happy: "No. He didn't tell me that. I already have a god."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: "Oh, do not worry, all I'm asking for is for you to belive in my god-will."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "Sure, you are a favored one, might complicate things."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: *good-will
[02:20] Happy: "I believe. But I won't obey you instead of my own god."
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… might stretch the bounderies… maybe you can do me a favor instead?"
[02:21] Shadowcaller: "A favor in trade for a wish of anything you want (with some reasonable limits) sounds like a good deal right?"
[02:22] Happy: "That depends on the favor."
[02:22] Shadowcaller: "First, state your wish."
[02:23] Happy: "And shouldn't you be talking to her? It's her wish."
[02:23] Shadowcaller: "Your the one who requesting it, not her."
[02:24] Happy: "I can't - you're scaring me.
[02:26] Shadowcaller: "She is in a broken state, she csn't speak."
[02:26] Shadowcaller: *can't
[02:26] Shadowcaller: (brb )
[02:30] Happy: Happy shakes her head violently. "I can't do this. I'm sorry, I can't. Leave me alone…"
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (back)
[02:31] Shadowcaller: "You don't know what you want…"
[02:32] Shadowcaller: "Mortals never do."
[02:32] Happy: Happy breaks down crying.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "You have come to the wrong place, this is not a place for despair, only desire and happiness exists here…"
[02:34] Shadowcaller: "begone."
[02:34] Shadowcaller: The voice is gone
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (hm, the gods really hate you:P)
[02:35] Shadowcaller: Now two woman are crying on the field
[02:35] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to be only a few steps from that herself
[02:35] Shadowcaller: SHe looks at the child and then to yuo
[02:35] Shadowcaller: *you
[02:37] Happy: Happy looks at Ai accusingly. "You didn't tell me the cost."
[02:37] Shadowcaller: "…I didn't think she would ask you."
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "What are you talking about… your confusing me…" Cessie seems to be quite shaken of what happend
[02:38] Shadowcaller: A few men are helping the crying woman up
[02:39] Shadowcaller: The child, it looks like he have been killed by worms
[02:39] Happy: "Nega wanted me to worship her."
[02:40] Shadowcaller: She keeps looking back on the child and the crying woman "O-okay I can't really… I should have known."
[02:41] Shadowcaller: "I can't concentrate in all this…"
[02:43] Happy: (Cessie?)
[02:43] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is saying this by the way)
[02:43] Shadowcaller: SHe seems to be at the edge of crying too
[02:45] Happy: Happy notices, and tries to compose herself, putting her arm around Cessie. "Let's get you away from this. We're going to stop the druids, and that will have to be enough." (What is Ai doing?)
[02:46] Shadowcaller: (He is trying to comfort the woman)
[02:47] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to be trying to fight the tears "This… I never been so close."
[02:48] Shadowcaller: "Remember those boys we had hired to carry or stuff?" (In Nigmas story)
[02:49] Happy: Happy tries to remember, but so much of the past is still a blank to her. "No. I don't remember."
[02:50] Shadowcaller: (they were carrying our things, and then thye were killed in a bandit attack.)
[02:50] Shadowcaller: *they
[02:50] Shadowcaller: (You tried to save them)
[02:50] Happy: (I remember, but Happy doesn't)
[02:51] Shadowcaller: "You tried to save them… I never thought about it, it wasn't time."
[02:52] Shadowcaller: "I feel so empty inside…"
[02:53] Shadowcaller: "And I don't know why."
[02:54] Happy: "Death makes everyone feel powerless."
[02:55] Shadowcaller: "Its been too much…"
[02:56] Happy: "We're going to put a stop to it."
[02:57] Shadowcaller: "How? They are going to reach that second village…"
[02:58] Shadowcaller: "And they are going to kill them… it seemed so unreal last time I said it."
[02:59] Shadowcaller: "Now, that child was one, and there are going to be hundreds like him."
[03:00] Happy: "I know." *crying again*
[03:01] Shadowcaller: *sobs* "We need to get back.."
[03:01] Happy: *walks back to the tower, arm around Cessie*
[03:02] Shadowcaller: (End it here+)
[03:02] Shadowcaller: *?
[03:02] Happy: yeah
