Mar 22

[21:13] Happy: Murska says he has a little time
[21:13] Shadowcaller: Its 23.13 PM over there:P
[21:13] Shadowcaller: 11.13 Pm >.>
[21:15] Shadowcaller: What did we do last time?
[21:15] Happy: we're sitting at the campfire discussing what to do next. The refugees are all asleep, because Ai is keeping them asleep while we talk. It's morning.
[21:17] Shadowcaller: (ill keep it short)
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "What do we do with the refugees?"
[21:18] Happy: "I think the nearest safe place is the Tower. Either we take them back there ourselves, or we send them back on their own, or we split up and have one or more of us go with them."
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "I don't like the idea of spliting up, we should just find the amry and let the tree whipe them out."
[21:19] Happy: "Or… maybe use one of the orbs from Caster and ask him to send someone out to meet them?"
[21:19] Murska: 'I don't like the idea of sending them off alone. Contacting Caster might work.'
[21:20] Shadowcaller: 'picks up sending ball*
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "Lets try shall we?"
[21:20] Shadowcaller: * one NPC conversation later*
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "He says he can send his familiar to meet them."
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "Then guide them to the tower."
[21:23] Happy: "Okay. Then we should wake them and send them on their way."
[21:23] Shadowcaller: *you wake up the refugees*
[21:23] Shadowcaller: And notices wolfbane!
[21:23] Shadowcaller: …ignore that last aprt
[21:24] Shadowcaller: *part
[21:25] Shadowcaller: *they seems oddly eager to go to the tower, pehaps cuase of Ai's manupilation*
[21:26] Happy: *give them food to take with them*
[21:26] Happy: Then… we head off south?
[21:27] Shadowcaller: They accept your food gracefully
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "I guess… we have to I guess?"
[21:28] Shadowcaller: (ignore the second "guess")
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "We should hurry, I think there is a storm coming."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "I don't like to travle over these plains in a storm."
[21:32] Murska: (Hm. Who's talking again? :P)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (Cessie)
[21:32] Happy: Happy is ready quickly. It's not as if they have much to pack.
[21:33] Murska: (Also, someone caught you, Happy. :P)
[21:33] Murska: Aegnor is also ready pretty fast.
[21:33] Shadowcaller: You set you, with the horses I guess
[21:33] Happy: (I'm still playing innocent)
[21:33] Happy: (and we left the horses in Minster)
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (oh, right)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: You can feel the wind catch up a bit, dark clouds are at the horizon
[21:35] Shadowcaller: You are following the edge of the stone forest toward bearsted
[21:36] Shadowcaller: Walking towards the dark clouds…
[21:36] Shadowcaller: *toward
[21:36] Happy: "I don't guess the tree can control the weather," Happy says.
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "I doubt it… I don't actually know what god that can do it either."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: The stone trees remains unmoved by the wind, but you can feel it
[21:38] Shadowcaller: You can hear something in the wind… or it might just be your imagination
[21:38] Happy: Happy looks about uneasily.
[21:39] Happy: "Is it… the dead?"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean?"
[21:39] Happy: "Don't you hear the voices on the wind?"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Voices?… I'm not sure…"
[21:39] Murska: 'I hear something…'
[21:39] Shadowcaller: *lower voice* "You can hear them too?"
[21:40] Murska: 'Well, I always hear something, but this time I don't think it's inside my head.'
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "… lets just keep going, I hate to stay near this forest."
[21:41] Shadowcaller: The grass is moving with the wind
[21:41] Shadowcaller: And so is your clothes
[21:42] Happy: "If this gets worse, the army won't be moving. They'll be slowed down by it too…" Her voice trails off. "Never mind. They're dead. They can't feel it."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: After a few hours you have reached a certain point of the forest
[21:43] Murska: (oo. :P)
[21:43] Murska: (We reached a certain point.)
[21:43] Shadowcaller: you know that you are quite near bearcrest now
[21:43] Shadowcaller: (that is the outline of the northen edge of it)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: *of the forest
[21:44] Murska: (brb, nourishing self)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: You can't see it yet, but you can see smoke rising in the distance
[21:44] Murska: (:P)
[21:44] Murska: (You can't see it yet but you can see)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: You can't see the town -_-
[21:45] Shadowcaller: The dark clouds are closing in on bearcrast
[21:45] Shadowcaller: *bearcrest
[21:46] Shadowcaller: you can hear thunder now
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "Okay, I don't think we should get any closer until we got some kind of plan."
[21:49] Murska: (back)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "So, can you speak with the tree now Aegnor?"
[21:50] Murska: 'Sure.'
[21:51] Murska: Aegnor concentrates on the voices again.
[21:52] Shadowcaller: the voices can be heard once again /you here, feel the evil/
[21:52] Shadowcaller: /help us/
[21:53] Murska: /I will, I'm trying to get rid of them./
[21:53] Murska: /Can you help?/
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /there is a great evil… its pains us/
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /its near/
[21:53] Shadowcaller: /like the posion of the temple/
[21:55] Happy: (SC's tree has better grammar than mine )
[21:55] Murska: (:P)
[21:55] Murska: /can you kill it?/
[21:55] Shadowcaller: (your seos was more evil then mine >.>)
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /it has no life…its many/
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /many, unatural/
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /not here/
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /outside…/
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /it pains us to speak/
[21:58] Murska: (hmm…)
[21:58] Shadowcaller: /many, lifedrinker, outside of circle, unatural/
[21:58] Shadowcaller: /its everywhere…/
[21:58] Murska: /move earth under them?/
[21:58] Shadowcaller: /its withing/
[21:58] Shadowcaller: *within
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /feeding…/
[21:59] Murska: (Frustrating knowing what it's talking about but not knowing it IC. :P)
[21:59] Shadowcaller: (oh, you have no idea
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /everywhere, take it away!/
[22:00] Shadowcaller: /the bigness… its outside it/
[22:00] Shadowcaller: /and inside/
[22:00] Murska: (and now it's getting even less coherent -.-)
[22:00] Shadowcaller: :P
[22:00] Happy: (It's a tree. You're lucky it can communicate at all :P)
[22:01] Murska: (Cessie's artifact is so much easier to use. :P)
[22:01] Murska: (point at stuff, hope)
[22:01] Shadowcaller: (well, nature is harder to control, magic is more like a slave, anture has it own ways./
[22:01] Shadowcaller: *nature
[22:02] Murska: (Technically, if you're using those terms, I could start on the relationship of Nature and Magic in this setting… :P)
[22:02] Shadowcaller: (eh, just speak with the tree)
[22:03] Happy: (Probably a good idea. Eventually, you should be able to channel nature magic with the tree's help)
[22:03] Murska: *Aegnor speaks with the tree* then. I have no idea what to say. :P
[22:03] Murska: Probably something confused
[22:03] Murska: like /what?/
[22:03] Shadowcaller: /get it away…/
[22:04] Happy: (ask it why it doesn't just swallow the earth around them?)
[22:04] Shadowcaller: /understand, it is there./
[22:04] Shadowcaller: /near/
[22:04] Murska: /You want me to get rid of something evil nearby, right?/
[22:04] Shadowcaller: /yes, all around/
[22:04] Murska: /Why can't you do it?/
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /it is within, it hurts us/
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /can't act/
[22:05] Murska: /inside you? Oh…/
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /prison/
[22:05] Shadowcaller: /poison!/
[22:06] Murska: /how do I get rid of it?/
[22:06] Shadowcaller: /burn it all, many/
[22:06] Shadowcaller: /many, near/
[22:07] Murska: Aegnor decides that it seems that he won't be able to get any help out of the Tree, at least for now. /Right, I'll try./
[22:07] Murska: *unblankify*
[22:07] Shadowcaller: /help…/
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "What did it say?"
[22:08] Murska: 'It is unable to help us for some reason. Something is inside it, poisoning it, I think.'
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "Hm, that dosn't sound good."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "So we need to kill whatever is poisoning it then?"
[22:09] Happy: "The bodywalker?"
[22:09] Murska: 'I think so. It talked something about burning it.'
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "What do a tree know about fire?"
[22:09] Murska: 'As you can probably imagine, making sense of the thoughts of a tree is pretty difficult.'
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Well, what do we do know? Looks like this aren't going to be easy…"
[22:10] Murska: 'Told you.'
[22:10] Shadowcaller: *sigh*
[22:10] Happy: "Do you still want to try and disguise yourself and sneak in?"
[22:11] Shadowcaller: "Lets see how much we can trust this godess of mine?"
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (um happy, can you be Helena?)
[22:11] Happy: (okay)
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "Here goes nothing…"
[22:12] Shadowcaller: *uses orb*
[22:12] Happy: Helena appears, looking just as beautiful as before, though with her hair styled differently and her eyes a different colour.
[22:13] Shadowcaller: /Mistress, your servant require your aid./
[22:14] Happy: /Oh, hello my dear./ She looks critically. /You seem rather windblown./
[22:14] Shadowcaller: /There is a storm coming… I'm sorry for my dreadful apperance./
[22:15] Happy: /Oh, I suppose it can't be helped, as long as you're on the mortal planes. You know the wind chaps your skin something terrible though./
[22:15] Shadowcaller: /I never thought about it this way… but right now I'm in need of a disguise./
[22:16] Shadowcaller: /oh and maybe you can fix my hair a bit?/
[22:16] Happy: /That's right. You did say something about that. Do you want to look just like Seos did? Or something different?/
[22:17] Shadowcaller: /Like Seos did I guess, what exactly did he ask for?/
[22:19] Happy: /He only wanted to disguise his elven features. Of course since the druids only sacrifice females, you'll need a bit more work. And the clothing too. Yes, it will all need to change./
[22:19] Shadowcaller: /But its just an illusion, surely it can't be hard for one such as you./
[22:21] Happy: She smiles. /No, of course not./
[22:21] Murska: (I'm fighting the temptation to poke Cessie.)
[22:21] Happy: Cessie feels the presence of magic, and Aegnor and Happy see her appearance change to look just like Seos.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: (don't >.>)
[22:21] Shadowcaller: *bows* /Thank you mistress/
[22:22] Shadowcaller: (hm, maybe you shoudl be disguised too?)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: (I hate to have the NPC do all the work))
[22:23] Shadowcaller: *should
[22:23] Happy: She looks over you critically. /Your voice needs help as well, I think./
[22:23] Shadowcaller: /Yes, this feels a bit odd…/
[22:24] Shadowcaller: /COuld you help my freinds with the same disguise too?/
[22:24] Shadowcaller: /I make it up to you in any way I can./
[22:25] Happy: /I could. But you haven't said anything about my new hairstyle./ *pouting a little*
[22:27] Shadowcaller: /I was afraid you would think my attempts to praise it would only be clumsy in your presence, I deeply appologize for this mistress./
[22:27] Happy: Happy to Aegnor: "That's really creepy" O.o
[22:28] Murska: 'Yeah…'
[22:29] Shadowcaller: /I would give anything anything for have the same haircut as you mistress, but I do not wish to compare myself to one./
[22:29] Happy: "I mean, I just slit that guy's throat, and now he's sitting here in front of me."
[22:29] Shadowcaller: *you
[22:29] Murska: 'Well don't do it again this time.' *smile*
[22:30] Happy: /Oh, it's nothing. Barely takes any work at all. But I don't think it would suit you. Not unless we were to change your facial shape./
[22:31] Shadowcaller: /Thats okay… what could I do in the presence of you?/
[22:31] Shadowcaller: /Anyway… could you help my friends with bascially the same type of disguise?/
[22:32] Happy: /Oh certainly. Let me see them./
[22:32] Shadowcaller: *takes orb in fron of Aegnor and then Happy*
[22:33] Shadowcaller: *front
[22:33] Murska: 'Uh.'
[22:33] Happy: /Another elf. Were you a friend of Seos as well?/
[22:34] Murska: 'Um. Right, yeah, of course.'
[22:35] Shadowcaller: /he is a little confused./
[22:35] Shadowcaller: /most likely stunned by your presence./
[22:35] Happy: /Of course./ She waves a hand carelessly, and Aegnor's appearance is changed to make him look like a human druid.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: *takes the orb to happy*
[22:38] Shadowcaller: /this is Happy, she is my… servant./
[22:38] Shadowcaller: /It was she who killed the mad barabarian that killed Seos/
[22:38] Happy: Helena looks disgusted. /She's hideous! That scar…/
[22:39] Shadowcaller: (I guess happy hear that?)
[22:39] Happy: She can, but she doesn't reply
[22:39] Happy: /How can you bear having her near?/
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /She obeys orders./
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /I need her for more heavy work./
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /Could you fix her scar?/
[22:42] Happy: /I suppose. A real fix would take time, but an illusory one I could do easily. Do you mean her to look like a druid as well?/
[22:42] Shadowcaller: /Yes, exactly./
[22:44] Happy: Happy's appearance is changed as well. She looks like a male version of herself, with the scar gone.
[22:44] Shadowcaller: *bows* /I don't know how to thank you./
[22:47] Happy: Helena smiles graciously, and the contact is cut off.
[22:48] Shadowcaller: *phew* "Lets go then?"
[22:49] Shadowcaller: "I feel a bit odd in this illusion reallt…"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: *really
[22:50] Murska: 'Man you guys look creepy.'
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "You look about the same you know?"
[22:50] Happy: Happy "I think you look weird as a human"
[22:51] Murska: 'I think you look better as a female.'
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "Touche."
[22:51] Happy: Ai, of course, has altered his own appearance.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "…and whats that supposed to mean?"
[22:52] Shadowcaller: "Shall we go then? We need some kind of story thought."
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "Why we appear so sudden."
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "Err… I don't think I can speak with this voice thought."
[22:53] Murska: 'Mix in some truth? The temple was attacked and destroyed by an unknown force, we fled?'
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "Unknown fire?"
[22:54] Happy: "Fire wouldn't destroy stone."
[22:54] Happy: "Say it was an earthquake?"
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "It sounds quite unbelivable…"
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "Maybe we should just go with message?"
[22:55] Happy: "Or we finished all the sacrifices and came for more?"
[22:56] Shadowcaller: "I guess."
[22:56] Shadowcaller: "I just don't want to get caught in there."
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, I guess you have to be speaking."
[22:58] Murska: 'Okay.'
[22:58] Shadowcaller: "Anything else you can think of?"
[22:59] Murska: 'Not really. It's not like I'm known for planning my every move carefully.'
[22:59] Happy: "What are we trying to do? Get druids by themselves and kill them quietly?"
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "Lets just spy a bit first."
[22:59] Murska: 'Yup, and save all the people we can.'
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (anything else you want to do before you move on. this is going to be hard)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (Like before the end-of-level boss)
[23:00] Murska: (save, restore all hp and mana, equip best items for the encounter)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (so nothing then)
[23:01] Happy: (Doesn't Murska need to go to bed though?)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (Aww)
[23:01] Murska: (Maybe some day. I think I'll skip tonight.)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: >.>
[23:02] Shadowcaller: You move toward the smoke rising
[23:02] Shadowcaller: The wind is stronger now, you can hear the thunder more frequently
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Soon you can see bearcrest in the horizion
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Or, the ruins of it
[23:04] Shadowcaller: As you come closer you see zombies, and other types of undead moving around everyhwere
[23:04] Shadowcaller: The town is in complete ruins
[23:05] Happy: Happy whispers a prayer to Kuori
[23:05] Shadowcaller: Thankfully the undead seems to ignore you, you can regonize some of these faces…
[23:05] Shadowcaller: You move on quickly, trying to ignore the persons that are slowly devoured by the stone trees
[23:06] Shadowcaller: You can see two druids talking to each other
[23:06] Murska: Aegnor relies on his talent for acting to seem like he belongs here.
[23:06] Shadowcaller: *so dose Cessie*
[23:07] Happy: Happy isn't as good an actor as the other two. Ai, of course, is perfect. (Do you want me to be Ai?)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: (sure, why not?)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: The druids look up
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Coming from the temple?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: He asks shortly
[23:09] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "What are you here for?"
[23:09] Murska: 'We're out of sacrifices.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "Already? We need the bodies here for the army you know."
[23:10] Murska: 'You think a couple more zombies will affect our strength more than the sacrifices?'
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "The completion of the walker is nessecary for the great ones cuase."
[23:12] Murska: 'You have enough corpses for it. The sacrifices are also necessary.'
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Not exactly… but who am I to argue, just get some corpses and get out of here."
[23:13] Murska: (eh. Don't the sacrifices need to be alive? Well, no matter.)
[23:14] Murska: Aegnor, while talking, looks around a bit.
[23:14] Shadowcaller: There are worms here, a lot of them
[23:15] Shadowcaller: they are feeding upon the corpses of humans
[23:15] Happy: (Murska, have you seen the picture of the worms?)
[23:15] Shadowcaller: some still alive
[23:15] Murska: (yah)
[23:15] Shadowcaller: They aren't moving thought
[23:15] Shadowcaller: Seemingly paralyzed by the worms
[23:16] Shadowcaller: There is a building guarded by 4 druids
[23:16] Happy: In Cessie's head: /It's horrible. I can feel their pain./ Ai's voice sounds sick.
[23:16] Murska: (Hmm.)
[23:16] Shadowcaller: /So do I…/
[23:17] Shadowcaller: The rest of the buidlings are in ruins
[23:18] Murska: 'Well, I'm not going anywhere before the storm's out. Those are a pain to travel through.'
[23:18] Shadowcaller: There is a large ent, its skin almost stone-like walking around
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Hehe, we don't have many places to sleep thought."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "unless you can bear the thought of sleeping outside with the undead."
[23:20] Murska: 'Ugh. Any other options?'
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "You don't want to sleep with the master… he wishes to have the house for himself."
[23:21] Murska: 'Yeah, I don't… Where do the rest of you sleep?'
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "Outside… in some ruins?"
[23:22] Happy: "Did you have to burn down everything?"
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "The worms where a bit eager."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "And the master…"
[23:22] Murska: 'Hmf. The problems of logistics. Well, we'll find some place.'
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "You are free to sleep anywhere but the masters place I would guess."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "Don't get too close to the walker thought."
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Hm, who are you anyway?"
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "I can't say I regnoize you."
[23:26] Murska: 'I'm Tomas. Been mostly doing jobs around the temple thus far but this time I was sent here.'
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "Who are the others?"
[23:27] Murska: 'I don't even know. Some people who were pushed on me to 'help handle the prisoners', as if they could do something.'
[23:28] Shadowcaller: *he looks the rest over briefly*
[23:28] Shadowcaller: Cessie acts more concerned of the zomvies nearby
[23:28] Happy: Ai reaches into his mind to try and reduce his suspicion
[23:28] Shadowcaller: *zombies
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "Eh, just go ahead and find some place to sleep."
[23:29] Murska: 'Yeah, we were going to.'
[23:29] Murska: Aegnor turns and leaves.
[23:29] Happy: Happy and Ai as well.
[23:29] Shadowcaller: The others follows I guess
[23:30] Shadowcaller: There are zombies everywhere you can clearly see the walker in the distance
[23:30] Shadowcaller: The dark clouds are now right above you
[23:30] Shadowcaller: You can see druids moving around the walker
[23:32] Shadowcaller: Otherwise there are a few ruined buildings and paved roads
[23:32] Shadowcaller: There is pools of blood here and there
[23:32] Murska: *whisper* 'Any ideas?'
[23:33] Happy: Happy: "Start trying to kill druids?"
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "A bit… direct."
[23:33] Happy: "We want to weaken them before we try to battle that… thing."
[23:33] Murska: 'In the middle of their whole army, gonna be a bit tough.'
[23:34] Murska: Aegnor keeps the group walking, so they look like they're busy and belong here while not standing out enough to actually be noticed.
[23:35] Happy: And Ai is trying to make sure no one has the desire to investigate them
[23:35] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[23:36] Shadowcaller: these guys are walking around
[23:36] Happy: GAH!
[23:36] Shadowcaller: ()
[23:37] Happy: Happy is counting druids
[23:38] Shadowcaller: "So, should we try to pick them one by one or sabotage them in any other way?"
[23:38] Murska: 'We should do all the damage we can.'
[23:38] Happy: "I don't even know how to sabotage them."
[23:38] Shadowcaller: You can count atleast four of them walking around with the undead
[23:38] Shadowcaller: There are a lot of them around the walker
[23:38] Shadowcaller: atleast 10
[23:38] Murska: 'Stop that walker from ever being finished would seem pretty important to me.'
[23:39] Happy: "Yeah. I think we need to kill as many druids as we can before we attack the walker though."
[23:41] Shadowcaller: "Well, there are a lot of druids around it.."
[23:41] Happy: brb food
[23:42] Murska: 'So after silently doing all the damage we can, we should use everything we have to create as large an attack as we can at the walker and those around it, then get away.'
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Hm, sounds good, but how do we sabotage for them? They hardly need much supplies."
[23:43] Murska: 'Destroy equipment, distrupt leadership, eliminate high priority targets.'
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, any druid is a high priority target."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "And the ents I guess."
[23:45] Murska: 'And the walker itself. Not to mention the druid leader.'
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Well, how do we do all this unnoticed?"
[23:45] Murska: 'Wouldn't I like to know.'
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "My wand can cast invisiblity."
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "And some type of summoning spell."
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "Light…hold person, fly, dispel magic."
[23:50] Murska: 'And no huge explosion spell? Pity.'
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "I doubt thats going to help here."
[23:51] Murska: 'Explosions always help.' *smile*
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "You will se that they don't…"
[23:52] Murska: 'If nothing else, a couple massive explosions here and there have the tendency to make people concentrate on them instead of, say, a couple people running away.'
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "And how do you suppose we create these explosions?"
[23:54] Murska: 'That is something I don't know. After all, you don't have any explosion spells. So I guess we'll have to do without.'
[23:54] Happy: (back)
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "We need to start somewhere, I guess invisibility would help us."
[23:55] Murska: 'We already have a disguise. We'll need the invisibility once they know we're here.'
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "Well, I don't think they will let us in everywhere."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "But what do you suggest?… was that a drop of water? I thought it never rained here."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: Aegnor feels something wet in his face
[23:57] Shadowcaller: (that sounded very disturbing)
[23:57] Murska: Aegnor reflexively tries to wipe the drop off.
[23:58] Shadowcaller: More drops fall from the sky
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "This is… unatural."
[23:59] Happy: (it doesn't rain on the tree?)
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Or is this tree having a rain period?"
[23:59] Shadowcaller: (we are not sure, but it never rained before)
[23:59] Murska: (It doesn't usually rain on the tree, at least.)
[00:00] Murska: (Usually if something causes clouds and such, they'll be more like mist or fog, and there aren't any large bodies of water on it. Larger than small lakes, that is.)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: The rain falls down fast, drenching you, unless yyou go for cover
[00:02] Happy: (The tree probably regulates the water cycle itself)
[00:03] Shadowcaller: *you
[00:03] Murska: Aegnor tries to find a secluded and empty spot in the ruins with some kind of cover from the rain.
[00:04] Shadowcaller: You find the ruins of the inn you once sleept in
[00:04] Shadowcaller: It looks quite sable
[00:04] Shadowcaller: *stable
[00:05] Happy: Go there
[00:05] Murska: yup
[00:05] Shadowcaller: You enter the inn, its oddly like the last time you where here, but the windows have been crushed
[00:05] Shadowcaller: there is blood on the floor
[00:06] Shadowcaller: but no bodies
[00:06] Happy: "At least Marella left before it happened" Happy says quietly
[00:06] Murska: 'Yeah… She should be off the tree by now.'
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "…remember last time we where here?"
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "So much have changed… both with us and the place itself."
[00:07] Happy: "Things were a lot simpler then. We just wanted to find Cessie's memories."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "Remember how angry I got at you Aegnor?"
[00:08] Murska: 'Yes.'
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Feels so odd.. with this liiusion and all, like we are completly different persons."
[00:09] Shadowcaller: *illusions
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Like it was hundred years ago."
[00:10] Shadowcaller: You notice some sleeping bags on the floor as you move further inside
[00:10] Happy: Empty or occupied?
[00:10] Shadowcaller: Empty
[00:10] Murska: 'Hmm. Some druids sleep here. Pretty much expected, the building seems to be in an okay shape.'
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "What should we do? They most likely murdered everyone inside here…"
[00:12] Murska: 'Ambush and eliminate.'
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "I'm pretty sure they are going to notice missing person pretty soon…"
[00:12] Shadowcaller: (damn my repeating of words.)
[00:13] Murska: 'Indeed but we have to start somewhere.'
[00:13] Murska: How many sleeping bags?
[00:13] Shadowcaller: (five)
[00:13] Happy: "The rain might help though. They'll assume the missing people went for cover
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "It is getting pretty dark…"
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (pretty again:P)
[00:14] Murska: 'And it doesn't seem that they're keeping a tight watch on each other's movements. We got here without too much trouble.'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "i don't think they expect anyone moving against them really."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "But once they find that the temple is gone…"
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "That they most likely are going to find out soon enough,"
[00:15] Murska: 'They'll find no evidence either. I think they'll be pretty confused.'
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "Hm, well what are we going to do then?"
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "Ambush them in the inn?"
[00:18] Murska: 'We can wait here, taking cover from the rain. It's perfectly logical. Then they come in, we kill them quickly and quietly and hide the bodies.'
[00:18] Murska: 'I should ask the Tree about the rain. Wake me if someone arrives.'
[00:18] Murska: Aegnor blanks.
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /Help…/
[00:19] Murska: /What's with the rain?/
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /hard, speaking/
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /Close, so close/
[00:19] Happy: Happy goes to the door and stands guard.
[00:19] Shadowcaller: /Can't…/
[00:20] Shadowcaller: /The thing, the outsider/
[00:20] Shadowcaller: /its near/
[00:20] Murska: /We're working on it. But why is it raining?/
[00:21] Shadowcaller: /Losing balance/
[00:21] Shadowcaller: /We are weak now/
[00:22] Murska: /You'll survive. And I will. I'll help you against the poison./
[00:22] Shadowcaller: /Losing control/
[00:22] Shadowcaller: /The outsider is near/
[00:23] Murska: (Anything happening in the world outside Aegnor's head?)
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Still raining, a lone druid is walking pass
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Outside the inn that is
[00:25] Happy: Happy watches him. Is he walking towards the inn?
[00:25] Shadowcaller: He is not, just passing it by
[00:25] Shadowcaller: He watches it as he walks pass thought
[00:25] Happy: Ai tries to make him want to walk in
[00:26] Shadowcaller: He ignores it and continues walking
[00:26] Shadowcaller: (NPC PC eh?)
[00:27] Happy: Happy decides to go after him.
[00:27] Shadowcaller: Its start raining more
[00:27] Shadowcaller: You suddenly see lighting
[00:27] Shadowcaller: a few seconds later you hear a deafening thunder
[00:28] Happy: Happy tries to catch up with him
[00:28] Shadowcaller: He is taking cover inside a ruin
[00:28] Happy: Follow him in
[00:28] Shadowcaller: It don't look much of a cover really
[00:28] Murska: (hahaha SC You're gonna win Rumble.)
[00:28] Happy: is there anyone else there?
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Just him, sitting along by a fire
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (fanboy is still way more powerful then me)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: "Who are you?"
[00:29] Happy: "Simon. I just got here from the temple."
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "Simon eh? Never heard of you."
[00:31] Shadowcaller: (do you say anything else to the tree?)
[00:31] Happy: *shrugs* "Friend of Seos." *makes as if to sit down by the fire, but at the last minute changes it to an attack - dagger to the throat*
[00:32] Shadowcaller: *the druid makes a gurgeling nose and then dies*
[00:32] Murska: (I won't say anything more of importance and soon cut the conversation again.)
[00:33] Happy: *search the druid's body*
[00:33] Shadowcaller: The first thing you notice is Cessie, she seems to have shut down the illusion temproary
[00:33] Murska: 'Hm. Why aren't you in disguise?'
[00:34] Shadowcaller: You find a dagger inside his ribe
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "I got tired of it… its odd."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "I get back to it soon enough."
[00:34] Murska: 'But if the druids come here, they'll spot you right away.'
[00:34] Murska: '…where's Happy?'
[00:35] Shadowcaller: "Don't worry, I can put up the illusion in a split second, and Ai is watching."
[00:35] Happy: Happy takes the dagger, then she looks for a place to hide the body in the rubble.
[00:36] Shadowcaller: There is some ruble everywhere, you guess you can hide him under there
[00:36] Happy: do that
[00:36] Shadowcaller: "I just got so tired of pretending you know?"
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Its too much, even for me."
[00:37] Murska: 'Fine.' Aegnor doesn't seem too convinced but lets the subject drop.
[00:38] Happy: After the body is hidden, Happy returns.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… its fine really."
[00:38] Happy: "One more gone."
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "What did you do?"
[00:39] Murska: 'I trust nobody noticed anything?'
[00:40] Happy: "I followed him into some ruins and killed him, then hid the body."
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Ai; "They are coming…"
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Cessie puts up the disguise again
[00:41] Murska: (brb)
[00:41] Murska: ( brb)
[00:41] Murska: *
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (go for S.E.U. happy:P)
[00:41] Happy: Happy returns to the door
[00:42] Happy: (no, i don't want to post there yet.)
[00:42] Shadowcaller: There are five druids coming
[00:42] Shadowcaller: (why noe?)
[00:42] Shadowcaller: *not
[00:42] Happy: *whispers* "Be ready. Five coming."
[00:43] Shadowcaller: (the sad part is that evnafets infected iceddragons…)
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "Great… quick, what do we do once they enter?"
[00:44] Happy: "Not a fireball. Too noticeable"
[00:44] Happy: (because i'm too busy in here and too annoyed about usb to write an awesome post for seu. I'll do it tomorrow)
[00:45] Shadowcaller: (okay
[00:45] Shadowcaller: "Any other ideas?"
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "I guess we have to backstab them or something, poison?.."
[00:46] Happy: "Hold person?"
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "No idea how many charges."
[00:47] Happy: "Then turn yourself invisible and stay out of the way. We don't want you getting hurt."
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "Okay…"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: Druid: "What is this? What are you doing here?"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: (they are right outside the door)
[00:49] Happy: "Staying out of the rain."
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "This is out place, find somewhere else to rest."
[00:50] Happy: "What? There's enough room."
[00:50] Shadowcaller: "Its not, we have been sleeping here since day one, now get lost."
[00:51] Happy: (have they come in yet?)
[00:52] Murska: (back)
[00:52] Shadowcaller: (Ai have backed up and they are now all standing right outside the rain.)
[00:53] Shadowcaller: Ai is next to you and the others
[00:53] Happy: "Fine. I'll get my stuff." *turns and and walks further in, but without turning my back on them completely*
[00:54] Shadowcaller: The other druids move away from the door, waiting for you to leave.
[00:55] Happy: *whispers to Aegnor* "Damn, I was hoping they'd follow me in. Now what?"
[00:56] Shadowcaller: The druids look impatient
[00:56] Murska: 'I guess we get out. *very low whisper* right through them.'
[00:56] Happy: "Hope no one's watching."
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "What?"
[00:57] Happy: (that was whispered. how would they hear it over the storm?_
[00:57] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[00:57] Happy: Happy heads out.
[00:57] Murska: Aegnor walks out after her.
[00:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie and Ai follows
[00:58] Murska: Aegnor stops once he's outside, seemingly to wait for the others.
[00:59] Shadowcaller: Two druids move further in
[00:59] Shadowcaller: One of them is waiting impatiently for you to leave
[01:00] Shadowcaller: The two others are wathcing Ai and Cessie
[01:00] Murska: (so wait. We go outside, of the five druids two go in and the other three stay around the door watching us?
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (two of them aren't really paying attention, they look exhuased)
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (its just the "leader" that is really paying attention to you)
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (of the ones near the door that is)
[01:02] Murska: Aegnor steps closer to the leader. 'Do you know another place where we could stay for one night? We need to get going back to the temple tomorrow.'
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "Not my problem, there are a lot of buildings here, take one."
[01:05] Murska: Aegnor's mind goes through the possible opportunities and then he steps back. 'Okay.'
[01:05] Murska: He turns and walks away from the inn, glancing back to see if the druids go inside.
[01:06] Shadowcaller: The leader is still watching you a bit, but is turning around, the rest of them are now inside."
[01:08] Happy: *is walking away with Aegnor*
[01:09] Murska: Aegnor leads the group behind a building or something, out of sight from the inn, then stops.
[01:09] Shadowcaller: The rest are doing the saem I guess
[01:09] Shadowcaller: "So what now?"
[01:10] Murska: 'Okay, I think the best option would be to turn invisible, sneak in and kill them.'
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "Who are tuning invisible?"
[01:11] Murska: 'What's the spell like? Duration? Does it cover noises?'
[01:11] Happy: (does the building have any way in besides the front door? the windows were shattered, right?)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (they were)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "No, I don't think it cover noises, it sould last some time thought."
[01:14] Shadowcaller: (and there might be other entrances to the inn, besides the window and the front door."
[01:16] Shadowcaller: The lighting strikes down again
[01:16] Shadowcaller: a few seconds later you hear thunder, its really close
[01:17] Shadowcaller: The wind and the rain is making it hard to see
[01:17] Happy: "Silence potion, invisibility, we go in, and we kill them."
[01:18] Murska: 'Yup. I vote me and Happy go.'
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "Well, I don't even want to do it."
[01:19] Shadowcaller: Ai is silent, he/she don't really seems like the same person since you started all this
[01:19] Shadowcaller: But nods
[01:19] Happy: Happy takes out the potion and drinks a sip, then hands it to Aegnor.
[01:20] Murska: Aegnor does the same.
[01:20] Happy: *waits for invisibility spell*
[01:20] Shadowcaller: *uses wand on Happy*
[01:21] Shadowcaller: She becomes invsible
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "Looks like it works.
[01:21] Shadowcaller: *uses it on Aegnor*
[01:21] Murska: *invisible*
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (indeed)
[01:21] Happy: *return to the inn*
[01:21] Murska: 'I go in through the windows, you take the door.'
[01:22] Happy: "Yeah. Let's hope we don't hurt each other accidentally"
[01:22] Murska: 'Creepy voice from nothingness.'
[01:23] Happy: "Meh. I like you invisible beter than looking like something you're not."
[01:23] Happy: Happy goes to the door. looks in
[01:23] Shadowcaller: Looks in?
[01:23] Murska: Aegnor sneaks to the windows and looks in.
[01:23] Shadowcaller: Its closed
[01:23] Happy: *goes to the nearest window instead*
[01:24] Shadowcaller: The druids seems to have created a magi fireplace
[01:24] Murska: Where are the druids and what are they diong
[01:24] Murska: doing*
[01:24] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see anything, but three druids are sitting by the fireplace
[01:25] Shadowcaller: They are talking about something
[01:25] Shadowcaller: You can't see the sleeping bags
[01:25] Murska: Aegnor tries to get inside without being noticed
[01:26] Happy: Happy does the same.
[01:26] Shadowcaller: Well, your invisible and don't make any noises:P
[01:26] Happy: *walk over to the three druids and listen*
[01:26] Shadowcaller: You have to screw up pretty badly to *get* noticed
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "Have you ever met Ignion?"
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "I don't wan tto, trust me."
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "Are you two going to talk behind his back all night?"
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "Well, have you seen him?"
[01:28] Murska: Aegnor tries to find the other two druids
[01:28] Happy: Happy readies her dagger and creeps up behind one of them.
[01:28] Shadowcaller: They are alying inside their bags, you not sure if they are sleeping or not thought
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Its worms you know… worms."
[01:29] Happy: *doesn't attack yet. Listens*
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "They said he was blessed by the great one itself."
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Itself?"
[01:29] Murska: (where are the bags?)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Well, what are we supposed to call the great one?"
[01:30] Shadowcaller: At the right of the druids, behind a turned over table
[01:30] Shadowcaller: That is facing the window
[01:31] Murska: (god, gimme a handgrenade…)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "Anyway, you know how this blessing was made right?"
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "I bet I*m going to hear it right now if I don't…"
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Well, they buried him you see."
[01:32] Shadowcaller: "Lots of rituals."
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "Then… they let the worms eat his body."
[01:33] Happy: Happy: O.o
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "Slowly, to make sure the magic took place."
[01:34] Murska: (So the sleeping(?) ones aren't visible from the room itself?)
[01:34] Shadowcaller: "And you know the rest."
[01:35] Shadowcaller: (they are sleeping quite near, just outside the rage of the light the fire is producing.)
[01:36] Shadowcaller: "Disgusting, but then again, everything here is,"
[01:36] Shadowcaller: "You get used to it, the worm will bless us all in the end."
[01:38] Murska: Aegnor waits for the thunder to strike, then uses the noise to mask stabbing the two enemies
[01:39] Shadowcaller: (where do you stab them?)
[01:40] Murska: (Eyes, or throat)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: You stab the first druid, the dies easily, the other one seems to notice something and opens his eyes
[01:41] Happy: (does Happy hear anything?)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: (nope)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: Only thuder
[01:41] Shadowcaller: *thunder
[01:42] Murska: I kill the other quickly.
[01:42] Happy: If Happy doesn't hear anything, then she's still listening to the druid's conversation
[01:42] Shadowcaller: The other one dies, but moves a bit before that
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "But really, do we need to sacrifice all females?"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "Did you hear anything?"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "IWhat?"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "I thought I heard…"
[01:44] Happy: *slice throat*
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (by the one your sitting behind I guess?)
[01:45] Happy: (standing behind, yeah)
[01:45] Shadowcaller: He dies
[01:45] Murska: Aegnor returns to the group, notices the two remaining druids and maces one to the head.
[01:45] Shadowcaller: The other two rises up, "By the worm!"
[01:46] Shadowcaller: The other one transforms into a large bear
[01:46] Shadowcaller: You don't kill the second one immideatly thought
[01:46] Murska: (starts, that is?)
[01:46] Shadowcaller: (yeah)
[01:46] Shadowcaller: He moves backward
[01:47] Murska: Aegnor keeps macing
[01:47] Happy: Happy draws her sword and charges the bear, not wanting to run into Aegnor attacking the other guy
[01:47] Shadowcaller: He mauls you as you charge
[01:47] Happy: *tries to stab in the gut*
[01:47] Murska: erm, invisible. :P
[01:47] Shadowcaller: and then starts running away
[01:48] Shadowcaller: (you don't have greater invisiblity >.>)
[01:48] Happy: (you didn't mention we turned visible)
[01:48] Shadowcaller: (okay, he moves back instead
[01:48] Shadowcaller: (i was not sure what model I should use)
[01:49] Shadowcaller: (happy is un-mauled)
[01:49] Shadowcaller: He flees in panic
[01:49] Murska: Aegnor still keeps bashing the other dude until he's dead
[01:49] Shadowcaller: He is pretty dead
[01:49] Murska: then attacks the guy who's turning into a bear. Or running away. NOt sure.
[01:49] Shadowcaller: He is doing both
[01:50] Murska: Clumsily running away while turning into a bear then
[01:50] Shadowcaller: Bears are quite fast
[01:50] Happy: (we can turn visible if you want… just tell us when we do :P)
[01:50] Shadowcaller: (eh, wait for it.)
[01:50] Happy: Barbarians are quite fast too. Happy is still chargint.
[01:51] Murska: (the druids haven't ever shapeshifted instantly before)
[01:51] Shadowcaller: (he is not)
[01:51] Shadowcaller: (just noted that bears are fast, so he would not lose speed.)
[01:51] Murska: (a bear/human hybrid wouldn't be fast
[01:52] Shadowcaller: (he is experienced)
[01:52] Shadowcaller: (lots of transforming)
[01:52] Happy: If/when Happy catches up, she attacks
[01:52] Shadowcaller: Attack how?
[01:53] Happy: stab with sword?

[01:54] Shadowcaller: You stab the bear/druid with your sword
[01:54] Murska: Aegnor tries to go after the bearhybrid slower, to avoid colliding with Happy.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: It roars as you it hit, confused
[01:56] Shadowcaller: *hit it
[01:56] Happy: is the bear facing me yet?
[01:57] Shadowcaller: No, its trying to escape in panic
[01:57] Happy: Keep trying to kill it with stabbities
[01:57] Shadowcaller: It collapses
[01:58] Shadowcaller: you are outside the inn by the way
[01:58] Happy: how did a bear open the door?
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Crashing right thought it?:P
[01:58] Happy: gah!
[01:58] Happy: does it revert to human?
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Nope, its squirming
[01:59] Happy: Kill it
[01:59] Shadowcaller: It dies
[01:59] Happy: if it reverts, drag it's body back
[01:59] Happy: don't think Happy can drag a bear though
[01:59] Shadowcaller: It dosn't
[02:00] Happy: *return inside*
[02:00] Happy: "Aegnor?"
[02:00] Shadowcaller: (haha, that would be your perfect defence happy)
[02:00] Shadowcaller: (pretend to be abducted)
[02:00] Murska: 'I'm here.'
[02:00] Happy: (that was the other reason I hadn't posted ^^)
[02:01] Shadowcaller: Happy is drenched in the rain
[02:01] Happy: "I don't think I can drag the bear back inside."
[02:02] Murska: 'I'll help.'
[02:04] Happy: "Better hold hands so we don't lose each other."
[02:04] Shadowcaller: The effects of the potions starts to wear off
[02:04] Murska: Aegnor cooperates with the bear transfer operation, while holding hands. (yah, I'm a bit busy)
[02:04] Shadowcaller: (with what?)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Togheter you manage to drag the bear inside
[02:05] Happy: Drag bear inside, put some fallen furniture over it
[02:05] Happy: carry other bodies to a back room
[02:05] Shadowcaller: (I bet that will make it invisibe:P)
[02:06] Happy: (:P)
[02:06] Happy: (can't drag it all the way into hiding. At least make it not *immediately* obvious.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: You do that
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Your clothes are all wet and youre freezing
[02:07] Shadowcaller: so is Murska
[02:07] Shadowcaller: *Aegnor
[02:08] Happy: Can we see each other yet?
[02:09] Shadowcaller: You can make out each others apperance yes
[02:09] Murska: 'Okay, you stay here, I'll go fetch the others.'
[02:09] Murska: Aegnor does so
[02:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie and Ai enters the house, Cessie seems to be a bit troubled by the bodies
[02:11] Happy: (happy carried them away)
[02:11] Happy: (out of the main room)
[02:11] Shadowcaller: (well, they are still isndie the house)
[02:11] Shadowcaller: *inside
[02:12] Shadowcaller: And the bear is not hidden very well
[02:12] Shadowcaller: "So, they are going to discover this sooner or later."
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "Thats six druids… quite a lot."
[02:13] Murska: 'Twenty more to go.'
[02:13] Happy: "Nineteen left, right?"
[02:14] Happy: Happy tells Cessie and Ai the conversation she overheard
[02:14] Murska: (hm. right. :P)
[02:14] Shadowcaller: "…he let himself be eaten by worms?"
[02:14] Shadowcaller: "And why do this sound familiar?"
[02:14] Happy: "I guess Ignion is the head guy who wants his own house. Not that I can imagine anyone wants to share with him." *shudder*
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "Well, there can't be much left of him."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "Some lich like state…"
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "A ritual…"
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "I have read this somewhere…"
[02:16] Shadowcaller: "Hm, so whats our next move then?"
[02:16] Shadowcaller: "We were very lucky who didnät get noticed this time."
[02:16] Happy: "Look for more druids hiding from the rain?"
[02:16] Shadowcaller: *didn't
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "…crap."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: "They must have noticed us."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: "Think about it, what happend when we killed druids out in the forest?"
[02:19] Happy: "I thought Ai said the spider dog thing was what told them we were there."
[02:19] Murska: 'Hm. We killed someone who had been sent to investigate sentries' warnings. Then they got alerted when he didn't return.'
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "No, the zombies stopped moving!"
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "Every druid controlled some zombies."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "So by now…"
[02:20] Happy: "…oh"
[02:21] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, by now the whole camp must have noticed that some druids are dead."
[02:21] Happy: "Then we should get moving."
[02:21] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[02:22] Shadowcaller: "How could we escape this place? There must be zombies/druids everywhere."
[02:23] Happy: "Either we go invisible/silent again and flee, or we stay and fight."
[02:23] Shadowcaller: "Stay and fight?!"
[02:23] Murska: 'We're still disguised, all they know is that some druids are dead.'
[02:24] Shadowcaller: "Have you gone insane happy? There is army out there."
[02:24] Happy: "The same army we knew about before we got here."
[02:24] Murska: 'We can still cause chaos and we'll have to return to kill more druids anyway, if we leave now.'
[02:25] Shadowcaller: "but we are surrounded."
[02:25] Shadowcaller: "They get suspicious if we leave in the middle of the night."
[02:25] Murska: 'They won't even notice us if we leave in the middle of the night. Or that's what we can hope.'
[02:26] Shadowcaller: "I guess I can fly over…"
[02:26] Shadowcaller: "I can hide us all in shadows…"
[02:26] Happy: "Ai? What do you think?"
[02:27] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure… all this… terror have dulled my senses."
[02:27] Shadowcaller: "Its not easy to reach out… I'm afraid what I might find."
[02:27] Shadowcaller: "I never… I'm new you see."
[02:28] Happy: Happy puts her arm around Ai's shoulders.
[02:29] Happy: "I'm sorry. The first time you see war, it's awful. But you can see more than we can."
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "Yes… and that makes it even more terrible."
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "I can sense a great evil, so many minds, a singel unity."
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "Its hard too explain, the creature is many… yet one."
[02:30] Murska: 'That's oddly similar to what the tree said.'
[02:31] Murska: 'It also mentioned that it's something from the outside.'
[02:31] Shadowcaller: "Outside? Outside the circle?"
[02:31] Murska: 'Um. I guess.'
[02:31] Shadowcaller: "Thats… thats not good."
[02:32] Murska: 'I sort of know that already. If you would explain a bit more?'
[02:32] Shadowcaller: "We are dealing with a powerful magical perversion."
[02:32] Murska: 'Indeed, that we also know.'
[02:32] Shadowcaller: "But its closer… I don't think its the worm."
[02:32] Shadowcaller: "Or it is… but yet not."
[02:32] Happy: "The worm druid then? Or the walker?"
[02:32] Murska: 'Another one? An offspring?'
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, there is so much terror in this place."
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to touch minds like these."
[02:34] Shadowcaller: "The druids are normal.. for such fanatics, but there is something else."
[02:34] Shadowcaller: "And its everywhere."
[02:34] Happy: "Ai, I know it's hard. But if you try.. if you can learn anything, it might help us destroy it." *still has an arm around Ai*
[02:35] Shadowcaller: "If that is your desire…."
[02:36] Happy: *immediately feels bad* "No, no, not if it hurts you. I can't ask that."
[02:36] Shadowcaller: "Its what i'm supposed to do, I'm not human right?"
[02:37] Murska: (Happy just exploded in Kaos. Sorry.)
[02:37] Shadowcaller: "I was human thought."
[02:44] Happy: Happy is still trying to comfort Ai
[02:46] Shadowcaller: (also, lore: The servants are humans that have been choosen by the gods they served in life.)
[02:46] Murska: 'Whatever you are, you have thoughts and feelings of your own.'
[02:46] Happy: (huh?)
[02:46] Shadowcaller: (Only the most devouted humans become servants.)
[02:47] Shadowcaller: "But, then I would fail my reason, my very purpous."
[02:48] Shadowcaller: (after they should have died that is)
[02:49] Happy: "What is your purpose?"
[02:50] Shadowcaller: "To grant the desires of mortals, as Nega granted me this life to do."
[02:50] Shadowcaller: "The two others, its the same with them."
[02:50] Shadowcaller: "But with other gods."
[02:51] Murska: Aegnor looks at Ai but stays silent.
[02:52] Happy: "But what will it do to you if you get into their minds? Will it harm you?"
[02:52] Shadowcaller: "Its like… walking into a room where you know someone just have been horrible murdered."
[02:53] Murska: Aegnor doesn't seem to understand the comparison that well.
[02:55] Murska: (5am. Maybe we should stop soon. :P)
[02:55] Shadowcaller: (but I want to reveal the identiry of the head druid >.>)
[02:55] Shadowcaller: *identity
[02:57] Happy: (gah! I just guessed it!)
[02:57] Shadowcaller: "You must understand, I do not know whats waiting for me there, while it can't really harm me physically or something, it would be like seeing something extremly horrible."
[02:57] Shadowcaller: (hm?)
[02:57] Happy: (Cessie's brother?)
[02:57] Shadowcaller: (you gussed what?)
[02:57] Shadowcaller: (nope, but that would be a twist:P)
[03:00] Happy: "We have to face it, Ai. It has to be stopped."
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "I will look then?"
[03:00] Shadowcaller: "Into its… many minds."
[03:01] Shadowcaller: Ai is silent for a moment
[03:01] Shadowcaller: "Nega, protect me…"
[03:02] Happy: Happy continues to hold Ai.
[03:02] Shadowcaller: "Its… its a walking worm…why did I not see this…"
[03:02] Shadowcaller: "Its here!"
[03:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks shocked "Of course, I remember…"
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "All those worms… by the gods… is there any of them here now?"
[03:03] Murska: Aegnor seems to understand and quickly looks around for anything living or undead.
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "A walking worm is a… human made of them."
[03:04] Murska: (knew explosions would help)
[03:04] Murska: (:P)
[03:04] Shadowcaller: "All the worms we have seen IS the leader."
[03:04] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[03:04] Murska: (totally seen that pic before)
[03:04] Happy: "They all are? They have a group mind?"
[03:05] Shadowcaller: "They are one mind, united."
[03:05] Shadowcaller: "It still thinks like a human."
[03:05] Happy: "So they know us."
[03:05] Shadowcaller: "I would call it him…"
[03:05] Murska: (hivemind style opponent… hmm. No 'queen' worm to kill, either…)
[03:06] Shadowcaller: "Formed into a body, it can cast spells…"
[03:06] Shadowcaller: "Its extremly powerful."
[03:07] Happy: "Thank you, Ai."
[03:07] Shadowcaller: "If its threatened it can just go divide itself into many worms."
[03:08] Shadowcaller: Ai seems shakened, but seems to be pleased what she/he just have done
[03:08] Happy: "How can we fight something like that?"
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "No idea…"
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "We would need to kill all the worms."
[03:09] Shadowcaller: "If a singel one survive…"
[03:09] Happy: "But the worms… they were out in the swamp. We couldn't possible kill them all!"
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "True… unless it decides to form all into one."
[03:10] Murska: 'If a single one survives, what happens?'
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "it hides, trying to make more of its kind."
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "I guess two need to survive."
[03:11] Murska: 'So we need it to gather all into one and then use those magical traps of Caster.'
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "or maybe it can mate with normal worms?"
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "It would be huge…"
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, most likely, and then we need to kill the walker too."
[03:12] Shadowcaller: "This creature might be even more dagnerous thought."
[03:12] Happy: "Or the walker first."
[03:12] Shadowcaller: What did the druids call him?
[03:13] Happy: Ignion
[03:13] Shadowcaller: "Hm, hope this Ignion aren't aware of us then."
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "Now we really need to get out of here!"
[03:14] Happy: "Leave Bearsted?"
[03:15] Shadowcaller: "Yes, we can't stay here with that thing watching us."
[03:17] Happy: "Okay. Then let's go."
[03:17] Shadowcaller: "Or? Do you have nay other ideas?"
[03:18] Happy: "No. Let's go. I can make us a shelter in the woods. It won't be watertight, but we can rest there. Try and figure out what to do next."
[03:19] Shadowcaller: Cessie hides everyone in shadows
[03:19] Shadowcaller: "Lets go…"
[03:19] Murska: Aegnor goes with the group, saying nothing.
[03:19] Shadowcaller: Outside there seems to be alarm
[03:20] Shadowcaller: Druids are running around everwhere
[03:20] Happy: *try and stay hidden*
[03:20] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you see a lot of worms…
[03:20] Shadowcaller: Forming into something that looks like a human
[03:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to want to ignore it and walks past, closing her eyes
[03:21] Happy: *stays with Cessie, but preparing to fight if noticed*
[03:22] Shadowcaller: (if we are noticed, we are so dead.)
[03:23] Shadowcaller: The darknees seems to work fine during the night, but you only walk in the darkeest coeners, trying to avoid all light
[03:23] Shadowcaller: *corners
[03:23] Murska: (beware of grues)
[03:23] Shadowcaller: *darkest
[03:23] Shadowcaller: You come to a huge field, filled with an endless horde of undead
[03:24] Happy: *shudders*
[03:25] Happy: Are there shadows?
[03:25] Happy: it's dark, right?
[03:25] Shadowcaller: The field is completly dark
[03:25] Shadowcaller: the clouds are covering the moon
[03:26] Shadowcaller: its still raning
[03:26] Happy: *lead the party towards the woods*
[03:26] Shadowcaller: you can smell the stench of the rottening bodies around you
[03:26] Shadowcaller: the decay…
[03:26] Happy: *looks back to see how Ai and Cessie are holding up*
[03:28] Shadowcaller: (since Cessie is the one making you invisible she is quite close)
[03:29] Happy: (does she seem to be handling the scene okay?)
[03:29] Shadowcaller: (she have her eyes half-closed)
[03:29] Shadowcaller: (trying to just skip whatever is around her)
[03:30] Happy: Do we get away okay?
[03:30] Shadowcaller: (you do:P)
[03:30] Shadowcaller: You reach the stone forest
[03:30] Shadowcaller: and now you actually feel happy about it
[03:30] Happy: wasn't there real forest somewhere?
[03:30] Shadowcaller: Nope
[03:31] Shadowcaller: Following the stone forest will lead you to Minister
[03:31] Happy: but there was real forest between bearsted and minster the first time we went that way
[03:32] Shadowcaller: but its futher in that direction
[03:32] Happy: Happy will try to make a shelter out of any fallen stone branches she might find, but it's probably not going to work very well.
[03:34] Shadowcaller: (its not, you better find the real forest first)
[03:34] Shadowcaller: (I would not sleep in the stone forest.)
[03:34] Happy: Happy leads them on then
[03:35] Shadowcaller: We find a place to sleep
[03:36] Happy: Happy makes a leanto shelter and uses her wilderness know-how to get a fire going.
[03:36] Happy: And she and Aegnor stand guard as usual, I imagine.
[03:37] Murska: yup
