Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 2595): Sat Mar 21 18:50:05 2009
[18:50] Shadowcaller: Decided what you are doing in S.E.U. yet happy?
[18:50] Murska: k
[18:50] Murska: this the IF chat?
[18:50] Happy: prolly merging with iceddragons, just because no one would suspect the fail
[18:50] Shadowcaller: Okay, send that action in
[18:51] Happy: hmm… if night doesn't end until tomorrow, Wolfbane might be back
[18:51] Shadowcaller: Yay!
[18:52] Shadowcaller: Just hope not everyone dies of auto-lynches >.>
[18:52] Happy: well I got two of the lynchees back at least
[18:53] Shadowcaller: Dunno if I can write them off since they voted during the night
[18:53] Happy: no, but i mean they're at least paying attention again
[18:53] Shadowcaller: And who is the GM? Happy?
[18:53] Happy: yeah
[18:53] Shadowcaller: I guess
[18:54] Happy: so, i'm still finishing up putting away the groceries, but Cessie and Aegnor can talk while I do that
[18:54] Happy: You're all still in the basement of the temple, with 9 rescued prisoners and a dead elf.
[18:55] Murska: (have we checked every room so no more prisoners anywhere, right?)
[18:55] Murska: Aegnor checks the posessions of the dead elf at some point, too, btw
[18:55] Shadowcaller: (I think so yes.)
[18:56] Shadowcaller: "I still think we should not have killed him, he could have told us a bit more about whats going on."
[18:57] Shadowcaller: "But done is done, and now we need to get out of here."
[18:57] Shadowcaller: "And destroy a stone altar…"
[19:03] Murska: 'I still have no idea how to do that. We haven't got any high explosives here.'
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "Neither do i."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "But I still don't know what my wand is capable of."
[19:04] Murska: 'Or my head.' *grin*
[19:05] Shadowcaller: "If I could study it for some time…"
[19:05] Murska: 'Study my head?'
[19:05] Happy: "Do we need to physically destroy it though?"
[19:05] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean happy?"
[19:08] Happy: "Well, this temple probably wasn't originally evil. It was sacrificing all the people that did it, right? So if there was some way to undo that. Not the deaths. I mean, whatever their deaths accomplished."
[19:11] Murska: (added a small article on the trees to the wiki)
[19:11] Murska: (also, we better retcon climbing up it. :P)
[19:11] Happy: When Aegnor searches Seos's body, he finds a black orb and a dagger. As soon as he touches the dagger, the voices in his head wail in anguish.
[19:12] Shadowcaller: (We should add ourself to the people and places section.)
[19:12] Murska: Aegnor kicks the dagger away and examines the orb.
[19:13] Shadowcaller: "Your… kicking away a weapon?"
[19:13] Murska: 'My head doesn't seem to like it. Evil, or something.'
[19:13] Shadowcaller: "I could tell you that…"
[19:14] Murska: 'I disagreed on using that insane sword, too, remember? I like my weapons mindless and at the very least symphatetic to my own efforts.'
[19:14] Happy: Aegnor can't tell anything about the orb except that it is black. And round. A little smudged maybe.
[19:14] Murska: Aegnor tosses the ball to Cessie. 'Catch! Ya got any idea what this is?'
[19:15] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… there is something I should remember about this stone."
[19:16] Shadowcaller: "But I can't get my mind around it."
[19:16] Shadowcaller: "Could be dangerous."
[19:16] Shadowcaller: "The dagger apperently was."
[19:18] Shadowcaller: *studies the orb*
[19:18] Happy: Cessie can feel a magical residue on it.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: *tries to use her magic force upon it*
[19:20] Happy: You can feel the orb absorbing the magic you send to it, but nothing else happens.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: *uses magic with it*
[19:20] Happy: (what do you mean?)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (channeling magic throught it)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (like I do with my rock)
[19:22] Happy: (hmm… we need a section for 'things' as well as people and places)
[19:22] Shadowcaller: (yeah, a eqipment list)
[19:23] Murska: (anyone read my Trees thing? :P)
[19:23] Shadowcaller: I did
[19:24] Shadowcaller: Intresting take really
[19:25] Happy: Nothing happens at first, then suddenly Cessie sees a woman's face in the orb, and a voice in her head saying /Listen, Seos, how many times have I told you, quit trying to call me when you're in that damn temple. Gives me a headache sending through all that— O.o…. you're not Seos…/
[19:25] Murska: (xD)
[19:27] Shadowcaller: /No… I'm not, why are you?/
[19:27] Murska: What does Aegnor see happen?
[19:28] Happy: Aegnor just sees Cessie looking into the orb. He doesn't see the face.
[19:30] Happy: /Why should I tell you anything?/ she asks. She appears to be an ethereally beautiful elf woman.
[19:31] Shadowcaller: /I'm sorry to say this, but Seos is dead, killed by a mad barbarian./
[19:31] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[19:31] Happy: XD
[19:32] Happy: /Stupid man. Well what do you want with me? And make it quick. I hate talking through this thrice-damned blood./
[19:34] Shadowcaller: /When I was preparing to bury Seos I noticed this orb, he had never mentioned it to me before, so I figured that I should see what it was../
[19:36] Happy: /Well now you know. Is that all?/
[19:38] Shadowcaller: /I want to continue whatever work Seos was doing, he did not tell me much, but I think it would be the way he wanted. I know he would give his life to complete his goal./
[19:40] Happy: The woman rolls her eyes. /He fed you that, did he? Fine. Call me when you get away from the temple. I hate that thing./
[19:40] Murska: (…yeeeah, about that… :P)
[19:41] Happy: Happy is saying to Aegnor "Do you think holy magic would break the altar?"
[19:41] Murska: 'I have no idea. I'm not good at magic. And the one who is just keeps staring at that ball thing.'
[19:41] Shadowcaller: /I will, hope we met again *curtsey*/
[19:42] Shadowcaller: "Seems like Seos was contacting someone."
[19:42] Shadowcaller: "A elven woman."
[19:42] Shadowcaller: "Now I'm even more eager to get out of here."
[19:43] Happy: Happy asks Cessie the same question about holy magic
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "Not sure, magical perversions are supposed to "eat" magic."
[19:44] Happy: "It didn't eat your fireball."
[19:45] Shadowcaller: "I don't think i casted a fireball on a magic perversion." >.>
[19:46] Happy: "Oh, you didn't? I saw it explode near the altar."
[19:46] Murska: 'I think she meant the altar.'
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "The altar is one thing, the worm itself another."
[19:46] Murska: 'Well the altar is what we're talking about.
[19:47] Shadowcaller: "Well… I guess there must have been some magic involved in creating that link."
[19:47] Shadowcaller: "But I don't think it was the type of magic I use."
[19:48] Happy: "Blood magic. Isn't that what the first druid we met spoke about?"
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "Primitive magic… not sure what could be used against it thought."
[19:49] Shadowcaller: "Blood magic may be a very slow type, but its damn hard to remove."
[19:49] Happy: "I just think if the power from my god stops the undead, it might stop the altar as well."
[19:49] Shadowcaller: "We could try I guess."
[19:50] Murska: 'That is, if we get there.'
[19:51] Happy: "We know we can outrun the tree things. We did it before."
[19:52] Shadowcaller: "What about the prisoners?"
[19:52] Shadowcaller: "And the altar?"
[19:55] Happy: "If Aegnor's head is right, then cleansing the temple should weaken the tree things. So we go up the stairs, leaving the prisoners in the corridor with Aegnor to guard them, while I race for the altar. Then whether it works or doesn't work, we bust the nearest window and get out that way, then make a run for it. We pair up the weaker prisoners with stronger ones, and we use haste oil on everyone."
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "Sounds like a plan I guess."
[19:56] Murska: 'Yup.'
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "Try to use any item you can think of…"
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "I will be studying my wand during that time."
[19:58] Happy: "… while we're running?" Happy looks confused.
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "Never midn."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: *mind
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "Just lets do this and see if it works."
[19:58] Murska: Aegnor listens to the voices in his head while the plan is explained to the prisoners, just in case they got something useful to say.
[19:59] Happy: "If it doesn't… well, I don't know. Maybe run back down the steps?"
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "I guess… it do sound a bit risky."
[20:00] Happy: /Make poison gone, then will help./
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "I don't want you to take too great risks Happy."
[20:01] Murska: 'We got to run out of here anyway. If the altar thing helps, then good, if not, nothing lost.'
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "If you really wish to do this happy…"
[20:03] Happy: "Can you think of anything else we should try instead?"
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "We could try the wand as I said."
[20:05] Happy: "How long do you think you need to study it?"
[20:05] Shadowcaller: "Err… a few hours amybe?"
[20:05] Shadowcaller: *maybe
[20:06] Happy: *looks at Aegnor* "Do you think we can wait that long? Although we've already been down here a while, and they haven't come after us."
[20:08] Murska: 'I don't know. I guess if they haven't come down they're either preparing for a large assault or they can't.'
[20:08] Shadowcaller: "They are zombies, I doubt they *plan* anything"
[20:08] Happy: "Can the worm plan?"
[20:08] Shadowcaller: "If it knew we were here it would pretty likely have devoured us right now."
[20:09] Murska: 'And the war seems pretty planned.'
[20:09] Shadowcaller: "It can only sense large gatherings."
[20:09] Shadowcaller: "I think thats the druids."
[20:10] Shadowcaller: "Magical perversations are supposed to be mindless.. but thena again, there are no such perversions as the worm."
[20:11] Happy: "Then you probably have time to study it."
[20:11] Shadowcaller: "So we are going with the wand plan?"
[20:12] Happy: "That depends on what it can do."
[20:12] Shadowcaller: "I don't know until I have had time to study it, mind you, it might be completly useless."
[20:13] Happy: "Then I'll go and talk to the prisoners while you study," Happy says.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "Okay, let us see what the wand can do.." (when was the last time we ate/drank anyway?)
[20:14] Happy: (hours ago)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (so are we feeling hungry/thirsty?)
[20:15] Happy: (probably)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (they need to feed the prisoners… any food/water down here?)
[20:16] Murska: (why feed them when they're killing them anyway?)
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (well, they need to keep them alive so the worm can feed upon them:P)
[20:17] Happy: There's water. No signs of food, unless you are planning on searching more of the basement.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (we are)
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (right?)
[20:18] Murska: While Cessie's searching, why not
[20:18] Murska: er
[20:18] Murska: the wand… mind blank, examining it or something
[20:18] Shadowcaller: (indeed)
[20:19] Happy: okay, Aegnor searches the basement. In the area where he found Seos, there are some rooms that look like they were used for living quarters
[20:21] Murska: I search them for useful stuff
[20:23] Happy: Mostly clothes and books, and some simple furniture. One of the rooms nearby seems to have been food storage though, with salted meat and hard tack.
[20:24] Murska: I take all the food I can carry and bring it to the group.
[20:25] Happy: The prisoners are very grateful. They pretty much treat you as their savior.
[20:27] Happy: Meanwhile, Cessie is studying the wand. She can feel that there are quite a lot of spells stored within it.
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (Like?)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (Give exemples.)
[20:28] Happy: (:P It takes some time…)
[20:28] Shadowcaller: (So I guessed, feel free to add silly spells)
[20:29] Happy: The easiest ones to identify are the ones she's already cast: Fly and Hold Person. She's pretty sure she can tell the want to cast either of those now and it would bring forth the correct spell. But she can't really tell how many uses there are of either spell.
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (there are more uses for fly and hold person then the orginal ones? o.O)
[20:31] Murska: (use = one cast of the spell)
[20:31] Happy: (yeah that)
[20:31] Shadowcaller: (oh)
[20:35] Shadowcaller: *attempts to us another spell then one of the two first then*
[20:36] Happy: Other spells: Dispel Magic, Light, some type of Summoning spell, Invisibility
[20:36] Shadowcaller: /Dispel magic eh?…/
[20:37] Shadowcaller: *finds happy and argnor*
[20:38] Happy: (DC is chatting again, though I haven't tried actually speaking to him.)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (indeed he is)
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (hopefully he is not angry anymore)
[20:39] Happy: Cessie finds Happy and Aegnor
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "It seems to wand is able to cast dispel magic."
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "Perhaps that can help us?"
[20:40] Murska: 'Probably, in some way. You're the magic user.'
[20:41] Shadowcaller: "I guess we should try this then? I don't want to stay at this place anymore."
[20:42] Happy: "Maybe you and I go to the altar together? You try and dispel the blood magic and I try to purify it with holy magic?"
[20:42] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, if anything goes wrong I have other spells at my disposal."
[20:44] Happy: The prisoners, fed and rested, and having been mentally influenced by Ai, seem remarkably calm about the upcoming events.
[20:44] Shadowcaller: /we should influence them like this…/
[20:45] Shadowcaller: *Preapares to leave*
[20:47] Happy: Three of the prisoners are not able to walk well: one elderly woman and two women with injuries. Happy healed them as best as she could, but both are still limping. The other women are helping them though.
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "So, this is it then?"
[20:49] Happy: "Yeah, I think so."
[20:50] Happy: Happy puts haste oil on everyone's feet. The supply is now running pretty low.
[20:51] Happy: *pokes Murska*
[20:52] Murska: (what? Aegnor prepares liek everyone else)
[20:52] Happy: (Any other preparations anyone is making? :P)
[20:52] Murska: (Aegnor attempts to calm down as usual, hums a tune and wields a sword.)
[20:55] Happy: Okay, you get to the top of the steps. The corridor at the top of the steps seems to be empty. But looking through into the main room, you can see the tree zombies standing around.
[20:55] Murska: how many?=
[20:57] Happy: more than you can easily count
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "Here we go I guess."
[20:58] Happy: "We'll make a run for it together then," Happy says to Cessie.
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "…lets just do this, can you create some kind of distraction Aegnor?"
[20:59] Murska: 'I'll rush first, trying to get them to attack me?'
[21:00] Shadowcaller: "um… something that puts you in a bit less danger?"
[21:00] Murska: 'I can take it. Better than you two being caught.'
[21:00] Happy: "You need to guard the prisoners."
[21:01] Happy: Margaret says "We can take care of ourselves, right girls?"
[21:01] Murska: 'And Ai's here aswell.'
[21:01] Happy: Ai might have given them a bit too much confidence…
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (have the zombies taken notice of us?)
[21:03] Happy: Not yet.
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "So what do we do?"
[21:04] Happy: "Let's just do it, before they see us."
[21:04] Happy: "Ready?"
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "i-I guess"
[21:05] Happy: Then Happy takes off running for the altar.
[21:05] Happy: As soon as she does, the zombies notice her and start shambling in her direction.
[21:05] Murska: Aegnor rushes aswell, trying to attack the zombies
[21:06] Happy: Aegnor attacks a tree zombie. His sword doesn't seem to do much damage.
[21:06] Shadowcaller: *hides herself in darknees*
[21:07] Shadowcaller: *trying to stay exactly behind happy as she moves toward the altar*
[21:07] Murska: Aegnor makes noise and tries to gather the zombies to attack at him
[21:09] Happy: With the haste and the shadows, Happy and Cessie zig zag around the zombies and easily evade them. They reach the altar.
[21:09] Happy: Aegnor has four zombies shuffling towards him.
[21:09] Murska: Aegnor keeps staying out of their reach and attacking other ones
[21:12] Shadowcaller: *attempts to dispel magic on the altar*
[21:16] Happy: The altar hisses and smokes, and the tree zombies freeze in place a moment, before attacking with more urgency

[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Its your turn happy, use your holy magic upon it!"
[21:21] Happy: Happy calls upon Kuori, and lays her hands on the altar. Though there is no visible effect on the altar, the zombies shudder, and stop moving.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "Was that… what happend?"
[21:22] Happy: At the same time, Aegnor's voices are suddenly much clearer. /It won't last. Must hurry./
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "Did it work?"
[21:22] Murska: 'This won't last! Let's get going!'
[21:23] Murska: Aegnor hurries the prisoners.
[21:23] Shadowcaller: *runs out of temple*
[21:23] Happy: One of the tree zombies starts to shudder again, one foot lifting and slowly stepping forward.
[21:23] Happy: (which way are you running?)
[21:23] Murska: (outside?)
[21:23] Murska: Aegnor bashes it to the head with his mace
[21:23] Happy: (window or door?)
[21:23] Murska: he also picks up his axe from the bear corpse while being nearby
[21:25] Shadowcaller: (door I guess?)
[21:25] Shadowcaller: (toward bearcrest)
[21:25] Happy: Everyone runs for the door. Two of the zombies are moving now, but it's still very slow.
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "That much for cleansing the temple…"
[21:26] Murska: Aegnor goes last, bashing the moving zombies while they run.
[21:26] Happy: /Away from temple, fast hurry/
[21:26] Happy: He bashes them. They don't seem to much notice, though they take some visible damage.
[21:27] Shadowcaller: *still running*
[21:28] Happy: Prisoners are running too, Ai behind them.
[21:28] Shadowcaller: (are we getting out?)
[21:29] Happy: Everyone is out but Aegnor. Waiting to see if he's planning on fighting the zombies to the death or not. :P
[21:29] Murska: He's going out last, as he said.
[21:30] Murska: running after them
[21:30] Happy: Okay. Everyone gets out. The forest is dark, so you can't run at top speed safely.
[21:31] Shadowcaller: *slows down a bit*
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "We made it!"
[21:31] Murska: 'Keep going.'
[21:31] Happy: /Keep going keep going keep going/
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (well, I didn't say I stopped/
[21:33] Happy: /Pull temple down!/ The voices seem joyful.
[21:35] Happy: You hear a rumbling behind you. A sinkhole opens beneath the temple, causing part of it to collapse completely.
[21:36] Shadowcaller: *looks in the direction of the noise* "By the gods… did- did we do that?"
[21:36] Murska: 'I sure hope we did. Keep going!'
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *keeps going* "but how?"
[21:38] Murska: 'I don't care, let's just get out of here.'
[21:38] Happy: You run through the dark woods, guided by Happy.
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "And thats why you will never get magic…"
[21:38] Shadowcaller: *keeps going*
[21:38] Happy: Eventually coming to the end of them.
[21:39] Happy: The voices in Aegnor's head are singing happily, though they are no longer trying to be understood.
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "Anyone have a idea how that happend?"
[21:41] Happy: Happy is finding a safe place to camp for the party. "No. It doesn't make sense."
[21:41] Murska: 'But it happened. That's what the voices meant with 'pulling it down'.
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "The voices… did something?"
[21:42] Happy: /yes yes yes poison gone pull it down/
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "never seen anything like it…"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "Can you make the voices do anything else?"
[21:44] Murska: 'I have no idea. I'll try communicating with them when I have time.'
[21:45] Shadowcaller: "Hmm, I guess I should contact that elf…"
[21:46] Happy: "We need rest. I know you like knowledge, but you've been going since sunup, riding, and walking and fighting and running. You're going on adrenaline right now, but as soon as it wears off, you're going to collapse."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "But- this might be very important."
[21:47] Happy: "And it'll be just as important after you've had rest."
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "Happy please, I can hardly sleep after all this excitment, I need to contact her as soon as possible…"
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "Don't you think?" *aimed at aegnor*
[21:51] Murska: 'But you can contact her after sleeping, too.'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "Why are you too always uniting against me?" *she sigh*
[21:51] Happy: Ai: "But she wants to contact her. Why should she not?"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: *two
[21:52] Happy: Ai: "Cessie, you should do as you desire. You can sleep after you contact the elf."
[21:53] Shadowcaller: "…your agreeing with me?"
[21:54] Murska: 'That's a bad sign, right?' *smile*
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "It- it should be."
[21:55] Happy: Ai: "Of course. You're a grown woman. Shouldn't you choose your own bedtime?"
[21:56] Shadowcaller: "I guess…"
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "You are making it a bit harder thought."
[21:57] Shadowcaller: (whats going on where we are anyway?)
[21:59] Happy: It's a small clearing separated from the stone forest by a hill. Happy's built a fire and the women are huddled around it for warmth
[21:59] Shadowcaller: (and where on the map are we?)
[21:59] Shadowcaller: (you don't need to mark it, just tell us.)
[22:00] Happy: south of Minster, about where the blue line and the black circle for the forest intersect
[22:03] Shadowcaller: (how dark is it outside?)
[22:03] Happy: (full dark. half moon)
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "Hmm well, I guess I'm better prepared in the morning.)
[22:06] Murska: Aegnor will trance, then after waking up concentrate on the voices again.
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (same, but replace trancing with sleeping)
[22:07] Murska: (you concentrating on my voices?)
[22:07] Murska: (:P)
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (replace voices with the orb then)
[22:07] Happy: Happy and Ai take the watches then.
[22:08] Murska: (btw, I gots SC session right about now so I'll only be staying for an hour or so
[22:08] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[22:09] Happy: Aegnor's voices are much clearer than before, and also, after he's tranced, much calmer.
[22:10] Happy: /Thank you thank you thank you/
[22:10] Murska: /Um. No problem… who are you?/
[22:10] Happy: /Everything/
[22:11] Happy: Cessie's orb. /Oh, it's you again./
[22:11] Murska: /Right… Tells me much, doesn't it./ *humorous tone*
[22:12] Shadowcaller: /What may I call you?/
[22:12] Happy: Voices: /Yes yes yes tell you much will do/
[22:15] Murska: /Hm. What can you do?/
[22:17] Murska: ( brb)
[22:17] Happy: Orb: /Helena/
[22:18] Shadowcaller: /You may call me Cessie/
[22:18] Shadowcaller: /Now, can I help you with anything Helena?/
[22:19] Happy: Orb: /You're a pretty thing. Could be prettier, maybe, if you let your hair grow./
[22:19] Shadowcaller: /I consider it *smile*/
[22:19] Happy: /Were you lovers? I wouldn't have thought he'd go for a human./
[22:21] Murska: (arg is the new MSN version screwing up my SC -.-)
[22:21] Shadowcaller: /Well, he needed me for his goal, I was supposed to help him with the magic part of the plan… we came quite close personally thought./
[22:22] Happy: Voices: /Everything land and water and life and breath/
[22:22] Happy: Orb: /Strange that he never mentioned you/
[22:23] Shadowcaller: /Not that he told me much about himself…/
[22:23] Murska: /Well that's a lot. Um, could you tell me anything more specific?/
[22:23] Shadowcaller: /Perhaps he was ashamed of my race? He seemed to have a issue with me being human./
[22:24] Shadowcaller: /I always looked up to elf's, he was the only one I met./
[22:24] Happy: Orb: /They are much more beautiful then humans, aren't they?/ *vain smile*
[22:26] Shadowcaller: /*looks away concerned* Yes, I wish I had been born as one really./
[22:27] Happy: Voices: /Bigness is. Not want hurt might break. Bigness./ Aegnor can sense its frustration as it fails to communicate well.
[22:28] Happy: Helena laughs. /You poor silly dear. He was never going to work with you, you know./ Behind Cessie, she may hear a hissing noise.
[22:28] Murska: Aegnor tries to concentrate harder. /I can't understand you properly…/
[22:30] Happy: /Bigness myself is. Hold up the world. Land and water and life and breath./
[22:30] Shadowcaller: /*looks around* What do you mean? I thought he and I had some kind of understanding… It was beacuse I was human right?/
[22:30] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
Session Close (Group Conversation 2595): Sat Mar 21 22:30:52 2009

Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 20153): Sat Mar 21 22:31:45 2009
[22:31] Murska: yeah
[22:31] Murska: back
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Fresh chat!
[22:32] Shadowcaller: /*looks around* What do you mean? I thought he and I had some kind of understanding… It was beacuse I was human right?/

[22:32] Murska: whoa, what happened… I never saw that
[22:32] Happy: Behind her, Cessie sees Iwi watching her intently.
[22:32] Murska: and I never saw myself disappear
[22:33] Murska: Aegnor sanoo:
Aegnor tries to concentrate harder. /I can't understand you properly…/

[22:33] Happy: [22:30] Happy: /Bigness myself is. Hold up the world. Land and water and life and breath./
[22:33] Murska: /The tree?/
[22:33] Shadowcaller: *ignores Iwi for now*
[22:34] Happy: Orb: /He would have sacrificed you to the worm once he'd gotten whatever use he could of you. He might have thought your magic would make you a prime choice. You did say you were a magician, right?/
[22:34] Murska: (thoughts without communicating) I can talk to the Tree? There's only one of these kinds of items per one tree, how did the elves not take it with them?
[22:35] Shadowcaller: /*shocked* What- what?… yes I'm a magican but…./
[22:38] Shadowcaller: /I knew he disliked humans, but… not like that, we knew each other!/
[22:39] Happy: /Tree is word being? Tree is, yes. Myself is tree./
[22:39] Happy: Helena shrugs elegantly. /Perhaps I'm wrong. But I doubt it./
[22:40] Murska: /Ooh… Can you tell me where the rest of the druids are?/
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /…anyway, what connection did he had to you? I just buried him and… I would like to know./
[22:41] Happy: Helena laughs. /I was his goddess./
[22:43] Shadowcaller: /Your a godess?… May I be do direct to ask you what you are supposed to represent?/
[22:43] Happy: Tree: /Poison is. Evil is. Feel their steps on myself./
[22:43] Happy: /I'm the goddess of beauty, of course./
[22:43] Murska: /Where? Which way from this spot?/
[22:44] Murska: (I'll be playing SC a bit now, brb for 5min or so
[22:44] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[22:46] Shadowcaller: /Oh, I never really saw that side of him./
[22:48] Happy: The voices fill Aegnor's head with too much sensory input, most of it unintelligible. Though he does make sense of a small scrap of it - the feel of footsteps crushing the grass beneath it.
[22:49] Happy: /Oh I'm sure he'd have rather chosen a god of war or power or something silly like that, but of course he had to have an elven god. And there are so few of us./
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /What did you help with him with? Or did he help you?/
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /I'm sorry to hear that Helena/
[22:54] Happy: /I helped him with his appearance. His illusions. It allowed him to hide his identity./
[22:54] Shadowcaller: /Since you were his god… is there anything I can do for you? What do you need help with?/
[22:55] Murska: Aegnor shuts out the sensory information. /Hm. I can't really make sense of all that./
[22:56] Happy: /Just tell me… what do you think of me?/ She smiles coquettishly.
[22:58] Happy: The voices seem sad. /Bigness is. Not want break./
[22:58] Shadowcaller: /What I think of you? How could I possible describe such a beautiful person? To compare you to anything of this world would surely be an insult./
[22:59] Happy: Helena beams in pleasure.
[23:01] Shadowcaller: /I'm only telling the truth my godess./
[23:02] Murska: (SC: Go point for someone with 1 point for an adventure)
[23:02] Happy: Helena: /You're a sweet child. I'm pleased that Seos didn't sacrifice you./
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (like Eagle Wiz?)
[23:03] Murska: (sure)
[23:03] Murska: (I don't think we'll get rid of your participation though. )
[23:03] Happy: (looks like SC is going anyway)
[23:03] Murska: (But oh well, let's hope we get lucky)
[23:03] Murska: (maybe a +30 power? :P)
[23:03] Shadowcaller: (that would be ironic)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: /Now, what did Seos want? I never really understand his plan./
[23:05] Shadowcaller: *understood
[23:07] Shadowcaller: /Or rather, is there anything you could help me with? I know that I am human and all.. but I'm devouted./
[23:08] Happy: /Seos wanted to defeat the worm, but I never really understood much of what he was going on about. All rather boring really./
[23:08] Happy: /I could make you more beautiful, of course. I couldn't make you into an elf, but I could make you look like one./
[23:10] Happy: Voices: /Help you to helping us. We will. We can./
[23:12] Shadowcaller: /I see… you can cast illusions right?/
[23:14] Shadowcaller: /Those worm servants won't let me into their encampment./
[23:15] Happy: /Ah, you still mean to carry on his work, even knowing the truth about him. How loyal of you. Yes, I can disguise you. But wouldn't you rather be more beautiful?/
[23:16] Shadowcaller: /Err… that sounds lovely but won't anyone notice sudden changes to my appearance?/
[23:17] Happy: /Would they? Well it's your choice, my dear./
[23:18] Shadowcaller: /And I'm curious, more beautiful to whom?/
[23:19] Happy: /To anyone who looks at you, of course/
[23:20] Shadowcaller: /But, persons have different taste, beaty is in the eye of the beholder right?/
[23:20] Shadowcaller: *beauty
[23:20] Happy: Helena laughs. /Only ugly people say that./
[23:22] Shadowcaller: *thinks: what would happy have done?*
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (what would she have done?)
[23:26] Happy: (probably offended Helena at once by having a hideous scar on her forehead)
[23:26] Shadowcaller: (I see:P)
[23:26] Shadowcaller: (thats one arrogant god)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (thankfully I am a good actor)
[23:27] Happy: (She's very shallow and very vain)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Nessecary in the courtrooms >.>)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (So I have noticed, ugly people? Right.)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (However, its a free gift…)
[23:32] Shadowcaller: /Well, I need the disguise more then beauty right now, how would this work?/
[23:36] Happy: /I can send you the illusion whenever you choose. I know what they look like. Foolish men. So eager for power, and not realizing the worm cares nothing for them./
[23:37] Shadowcaller: /That would be a very good agreement, is there anything I can do for you then my godess?/
[23:40] Happy: /Just stay in touch, my dear. But don't call me from the desecrated places, it gives me such a headache./
[23:41] Shadowcaller: /Of course, your will is my law./
[23:42] Happy: Helena smiles, and the contact is cut off.
[23:42] Happy: Behind her, Iwi hisses again.
[23:42] Shadowcaller: /Now that was almost painful/
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "What do you think your doing?"
[23:43] Happy: "You're betraying Helios!"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "…what? How can I possible betray him? I gave him my secrets and he gave him some of his knowledge."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "I don't own him anything."
[23:44] Happy: "You have another goddess now?"
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "…um, that really depends."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: *is unsure if Helena can watch her*
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "And your supposed to serve us now anyway."
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "You remember what happy said right?"
[23:48] Happy: "That doesn't mean I have to like you."
[23:49] Shadowcaller: "But you like Helios?"
[23:49] Happy: …
[23:49] Happy: "That's not important."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "I bet, I can't really see anyone serving him of free will."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "In fact, most gods are big jerks really, in one way or the other."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "He don't care about you after you failed your mission anyway, so you might as well serve us now, until we realese you that is."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: *release
[23:55] Happy: "Hmph."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: *goes to see what happy is doing*
[23:56] Happy: Happy is on watch. "Hi Cessie."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "Hello, feels good to speak freely again."
[23:57] Happy: "Did you learn anything?"
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Less then I had wished for, but yes, I leraned a few things."
[23:57] Murska: (back)
[23:57] Shadowcaller: *learned
[23:57] Happy: [23:10] Happy: Voices: /Help you to helping us. We will. We can./
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "She was… quite demanding."
[23:58] Happy: "Who was she?"
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "A godess, the godess of beauty."
[23:59] Happy: "More gods?"
[23:59] Murska: /Thank you. I guess I'll have to talk with my companions about this./
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Looks that way."
[23:59] Murska: Aegnor unblankifies
[23:59] Happy: The voices return to their low murmur.
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "She asked if I wanted to become beautiful …"
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "What would you have done happy?"
[00:01] Murska: 'Umf… Morning everyone, what's going on?'
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "Oh… your- back."
[00:01] Happy: "Cessie was talking to the goddess of beauty. Um, I don't know. I wouldn't mind being rid of this thing-" *rubbing her forehead* "-but not enough to worship someone for it."
[00:02] Murska: 'Right. Well, maybe I can one-up you… I was talking to this Tree.'
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "This is getting stranger and stranger…"
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "you talked to the tree we are on?"
[00:03] Murska: 'Yup.'
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "So its sapien?"
[00:03] Murska: 'Apparently. Though, it's kind of hard to make sense of.'
[00:03] Murska: 'It IS a gigantic tree, after all.'
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "I bet… what dose it want?"
[00:04] Murska: 'To get rid of the Worm.'
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "And the worm is…?"
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Its inside the tree, that much I understand, but where in the tree."
[00:05] Murska: 'I don't know. It can't really tell me specific places anyway.'
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Hm, well I never really thought about killing that damn thing… it would almost be like killing a god."
[00:07] Happy: "But we have gods helping us."
[00:07] Murska: 'And that's what heroes do, right? *grin*'
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "Do it have any ideas about how to kill it?"
[00:08] Murska: 'No… it's thoughts aren't really very coherent.'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm just tyring to look at this realistically."
[00:08] Murska: 'Realistically, we need to do something about the prisoners.'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: *trying
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "Yes… we need to send them off somewhere."
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "Any ideas? They can't come with us."
[00:11] Happy: "Send them back towards the tower?"
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Well, there is a chance that they bumb into that army if they aren't careful."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "And I don't like to have that on my conscience."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "Anyway, that godess gave me a gift, she could make me appear as one of the druids."
[00:15] Happy: "Maybe we could send Ai with them?" The army should still be south of us though."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "Only the three of us… agianst that kind of army?"
[00:16] Shadowcaller: "Even if we are sneaking upon them it sounds impossible."
[00:16] Happy: "Yeah."
[00:17] Happy: "I wonder if they know their temple was destroyed?"
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "perhaps… can't that tree just open a huge hole under the army and kill them all?"
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "That would make our jobs much easier."

[00:30] Murska: yup. :
[00:30] Murska: :)
[00:33] Murska: 'I don't know the tree's capabilities. I haven't gotten that much time to talk to it, either.'
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "COuld you ask it?)
[00:34] Shadowcaller: *"
[00:37] Murska: 'I tried to, but it didn't really understand what I meant.'
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "I guess trees are harder to understand then gods… but I'm not going to risk my life until we know for sure what that tree can do for us."
[00:39] Happy: "How does a tree even talk?"
[00:40] Murska: 'Telepathy. Anyway, I'll try asking it again but don't get your hopes high.'
[00:40] Murska: /Can you help us defeat the undead army?/
[00:41] Happy: /can help you will help not alive feet poison/
[00:51] Shadowcaller: (what are you doing?9
[00:51] Shadowcaller: *)
[00:52] Murska: (SC)
[00:52] Murska: (Observed one of the most epic fail games ever)
[00:52] Shadowcaller: (haha)
[00:52] Shadowcaller: (what races?)
[00:52] Murska: /Um. Specifically, what can you do to them?/
[00:52] Murska: (Terran vs Protoss)
[00:52] Murska: (The protoss went sair/dt xD)
[00:52] Murska: (and is turtling
[00:53] Murska: with 1 probe on minerals after some vult harass)
[00:53] Murska: (I also saw SIX vultures stuck in a pathfinding loop)
[00:53] Shadowcaller: (haha)
[00:54] Shadowcaller: (thats bad:P)
[00:54] Happy: /earth and water move/
[00:56] Murska: /Hmm. That would be useful, yeah.7
[00:57] Shadowcaller: "looks like he is in trance again…"
[00:58] Shadowcaller: *pokes Aegnor in-game*
[00:58] Murska: (:P)
[00:58] Murska: (do I feel it?)
[00:59] Happy: (up to you)
[00:59] Happy: /you will help us?/
[01:00] Murska: /Yeah, I will./ Aegnor feels something. ouch…
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (do he react in any way?)
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (that I can see that is)
[01:02] Murska: (well, he physically moves a bit from the poke, like normally)
[01:02] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "Seems like he feels atleast."
[01:04] Happy: /long time was no help. poison hurt and hurt and no help. then you hear us!/
[01:09] Murska: /Almost all elves are gone, nowadays./
[01:09] Happy: /Gone?/
[01:10] Murska: /Most are dead, survivors have left./
[01:10] Happy: /Cause is for poison come?/
[01:11] Murska: /They left because of the poison, yes./
[01:12] Happy: /No help?/ *voices sound very sad*
[01:12] Happy: Happy "I don't know what we should do with the women."
[01:12] Murska: /They tried to fight it, but they were killed./
[01:16] Happy: /You to being killed to?/
[01:16] Murska: /I won't die. I'm good at not dying./
[01:18] Happy: /Glad yes not want you die./
[01:20] Murska: /Thank you./
[01:22] Shadowcaller: *pokes Aegnor in-game* "I wonder what he is doing…"
[01:25] Murska: /I think my friends want me to pay attention to them. I'll speak to you more later./
[01:25] Murska: Aegnor unblanks.
[01:25] Murska: 'Stop poking me, whoever it was!'
[01:25] Happy: Happy giggles.
[01:25] Shadowcaller: *hides hands* "…what are you talking about?"
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "I didn't do anything."
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "You must start imagine things with your constant black-outs."
[01:42] Murska: 'Yeah right. Anyway, it tells me it can move earth and water. Kinda like what it did to the temple. I guess that'll help.' *smile*
[01:42] Murska: 'Poor thing… The worm really hurts it and it has been abandoned for so long…'
[01:42] Shadowcaller: "you talk like it was a person or something."
[01:43] Murska: 'It's a living, sapient being. Looking down on it is like Seos did towards humans.'
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "But… its a tree."
[01:43] Murska: 'And I'm an elf.'
[01:43] Happy: "It has feelings?"
[01:44] Murska: 'Yes.'
[01:44] Happy: "Wow."
[01:44] Shadowcaller: "Well, what could the tree do then?"
[01:44] Murska: 'As I said, move things.'
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "So, we could move the earth underneath them?"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: (your 3 minutes of activness?:P)
[01:48] Murska: 'It should be able to do that, yes.'
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "Wow… this is amazing."
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "So we can whipe them out right now?"
[01:51] Murska: 'I don't think it's precise enough for that. Not to mention that we still don't know where they are. Although, on the other hand, it should…'
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "Should what?"
[01:52] Murska: 'Know where they are.'
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "Well, that should be easy."
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "An army can't exactly *hide*."
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "So we find the army, ask the tree to take away the earth underneath them, simple."
[01:57] Happy: "It can't be that simple, or why didn't it already do it?"
[01:59] Happy: "Did you know the tree was sentient before?"
[02:14] Happy: *pokes*
[02:14] Murska: 'No, I had no idea.'
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… well it seems to be that easy."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "But yes, I got my doubts too."
[02:15] Murska: 'Never expect anything to be easy, maybe you'll be positively suprised.'
[02:16] Shadowcaller: "Well, first we need to do something with the prisoners."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "Or rather, the refugees that they are now."

[02:38] Happy: I should go to bed. We may as well stop here.
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[02:38] Shadowcaller: I enjoyed my conversation with Helena
[02:38] Happy: It's morning. The party is sitting around and talking, but the refugees are all asleep, being mildly influenced that way by Ai.
[02:39] Happy: heh… well you kind of threw me, making me invent a god on the spot
[02:39] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[02:39] Shadowcaller: Well, it was a good one:P
[02:43] Shadowcaller: I wonder how we will work out >.>
[02:44] Happy: Well you're in charge next time.
[02:44] Shadowcaller: I am? Intresting
[02:44] Shadowcaller: I will make a ham villian I think
[02:44] Happy: The Tree is very powerful, but it's very hard for it to communicate with a person.
[02:45] Happy: Eventually, Aegnor should be able to weild nature magic, but it's goign to take him time to be attuned to it
[02:46] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[02:46] Shadowcaller: Its wild
[02:46] Shadowcaller: Hmm, the worms are eating of the tree
[02:46] Happy: and earth moving is going to be *very* hard to control
[02:47] Shadowcaller: As well is the *real* worm
[02:47] Happy: it knew exactly where the altar was. it just needed to have the link with the worm broken long enough to let it act
[02:47] Happy: but the armies will be a different matter
[02:47] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[02:48] Shadowcaller: And the leader druid have some aces up his sleeve…
[02:48] Happy: I don't want it to break the game, even though Cessie would no doubt like that
[02:48] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[02:48] Shadowcaller: Well, we would get a new adventure:P
[02:49] Happy: You figured out Helena pretty quickly. All she wants is to be admired. XD
[02:49] Shadowcaller: So I noticed

[02:49] Shadowcaller: I wonder what she would demand thought?
[02:50] Happy: that's worship to her. being admired and complimented.
[02:50] Shadowcaller: Hm, atleast she is not as demanding as some gods
[02:52] Happy: She's also not as useful. Doesn't have much besides the appearance thing. But Seos would never have worshipped a human god.
[02:53] Shadowcaller: A minor god really
[02:53] Happy: And elven gods are so rare that Aegnor didn't think they existed.
[02:53] Shadowcaller: Most likely the elves gave up theirs a long time ago
[02:54] Shadowcaller: Then she somehow have survived by leeaching of a few persons
[02:54] Shadowcaller: Hmm… this means she really need me…
[02:54] Happy: ooh, good point. So her careless attitude may have been an act
[02:54] Happy: she may not be quite as dumb as she seems
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Hm, true that
