Mar 24

[17:56] Shadowcaller: [18:22] Shadowcaller: "Now I want to get away as far from it as possible."
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "Can we eat something and get away please?"
[18:22] Murska: 'Heh. The things you experience yourself always dwarf reading about them
[18:23] Shadowcaller: "Well, right now I prefere to have read about them."
[18:23] Shadowcaller: "In books they can't hurt you."
[17:56] Murska: I'm too lazy for my own good, or I'd say that if I believed it to be good for me to not be lazy.
[17:56] Shadowcaller: (continue from there)
[17:58] Murska: 'In books we can't hurt them, you mean.' *bloodthirsty grin*
[17:59] Shadowcaller: "I don't like to hurt other begins unless nessecary."
[17:59] Murska: 'You don't call this necessary?'
[17:59] Happy: "We need to be under cover. Hopefully they'll fly low enough for arrows."
[17:59] Murska: Aegnor takes out his longbow, pulling back the string once or twice.
[17:59] Shadowcaller: "I do, but its different…"
[18:00] Shadowcaller: "Anyway, we should head out."
[18:00] Shadowcaller: "I don't like sitting here waiting for them."
[18:01] Murska: 'Well, sitting here waiting for them beats standing somewhere else waiting for them. We need to find some cover, though.'
[18:02] Happy: Happy looks for a good place to watch the sky without being seen.
[18:03] Shadowcaller: You are in the thiker parts of the woods, outside the trees are standing further apart
[18:04] Shadowcaller: You guess the army is going to avoid the woods
[18:04] Shadowcaller: Here is the best place to hide really, but your not sure its enough cover thought
[18:05] Happy: *make cover*
[18:06] Happy: should be plenty of fallen branches and mud from the storm
[18:06] Murska: * help*
[18:06] Shadowcaller: "So we are going to wait for the army?"
[18:06] Murska: 'Just the scouts.'
[18:06] Shadowcaller: "What is the point of killing them? Even if we assume they will fly low enough for our arrows."
[18:07] Murska: 'Denying our enemy information.'
[18:07] Shadowcaller: "Well, I doubt they will all come over this exact location."
[18:07] Shadowcaller: "They will most likely try to cover as large area as possible."
[18:08] Happy: "Then we'll hunt them all down."
[18:08] Shadowcaller: "And before this moment we haven't been able to kill a singel one from the ground."
[18:08] Shadowcaller: "How many of them are there anyway?"
[18:09] Murska: (you tell us)
[18:09] Murska: (:P)
[18:09] Shadowcaller: (happy feels there are six preys in the air)
[18:09] Happy: "There are 6 in the air."
[18:10] Happy: "If we can't hit them with our arrows, you can cast fly. I can fly up and fight them in the air. Force them down."
[18:10] Shadowcaller: "Hmm, still, it will some time to kill each of them,and they will move much faster then us since we don't have horses."
[18:13] Shadowcaller: "I mean, they are birds, they don't need to deal with the terrain as we do."
[18:16] Murska: 'We'll kill as many as we can. They can't trust their intel about this area even if some survive.'
[18:16] Happy: "And they'll keep sending more to find out why they are losing scouts here."
[18:16] Shadowcaller: "How will they know scouts die here?"
[18:16] Murska: 'By them not returning from here.'
[18:17] Shadowcaller: "The army will most likely be here before that."
[18:17] Happy: "Cessie, do you have a better plan?"
[18:17] Shadowcaller: "And they will not be able to inform the other scouts until they return too.."
[18:18] Shadowcaller: "Sorry for begins so negative, but I'm only good at finding flaws in other persons plans it seems…"
[18:19] Murska: 'Keep doing that. Once you find a critical flaw, it's all forgiven.' *smile*
[18:19] Happy: "That's okay. It's good to know the flaws ahead of time. Just be prepared for the fact that this is not going to be a quick war."
[18:19] Shadowcaller: "So we are going to be in a siege?"
[18:20] Happy: "That would be bad, if they beseiged the Tower. Maybe we can distract them somehow."
[18:20] Murska: 'We're the guerillas, fighting a stealth war, distracting them.'
[18:21] Shadowcaller: "So many risks… we need to be faster for that to work."
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "Hm, maybe if we…"
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "Ugh I don't know."
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "It all seems so hopeless… we need more allies."
[18:23] Happy: "Then try and think of any we could recruit. In the meantime, I have prey to hunt."
[18:24] Shadowcaller: "Saltcross had not been invaded yet right?"
[18:24] Happy: (any prey in Saltcross?)
[18:24] Shadowcaller: (nope)
[18:24] Happy: "Saltcross is clean."
[18:25] Shadowcaller: "For the time being…"
[18:25] Happy: "Aegnor, is there anything the tree can do to help slow them down? Maybe damage the terrain before the army arrives, even if it can't act near them?"
[18:31] Happy: *poke*
[18:31] Murska: 'I don't know.'
[18:31] Murska: 'Explaining anything to it is tough.'
[18:32] Shadowcaller: "Would be much more easier with an actual god…"
[18:33] Happy: "Well yeah. Gods used to be people. The tree though…"
[18:33] Shadowcaller: "But we need to come up with something fast, we didn't travel that large distance last night, and the birds are moving faster then us."
[18:33] Shadowcaller: "Gods used to be people?"
[18:33] Happy: (oh, sorry, did Happy not know that?)
[18:34] Happy: Change it to "Well yeah. Gods are a lot like people. The tree though…"
[18:34] Happy: "The only thing I can think of is to try and kill the birds once we see them."
[18:34] Happy: *is watching for prey*
[18:34] Happy: *has the party under cover*
[18:36] Shadowcaller: You hear birds, and other noises, but its hard to see anything under the trees.
[18:36] Shadowcaller: The sight is limited
[18:36] Happy: my prey sense?
[18:36] Shadowcaller: A prey is closing in
[18:36] Shadowcaller: another far to your right
[18:36] Happy: in the air?
[18:36] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[18:37] Happy: try to find a view of the sky, watch for it
[18:37] Happy: arrow ready
[18:37] Murska: Same.
[18:37] Shadowcaller: You see a very small clearing ahead
[18:37] Happy: we creep that way
[18:38] Shadowcaller: At the edge of your sight under the trees you can see a large bird fly, its some distance away however
[18:38] Happy: coming nearer?
[18:39] Shadowcaller: (lets see if I can explain this…. if you can see trought the clearing the bird is flying far left to the clearing itself
[18:40] Shadowcaller: *of
[18:40] Happy: "Cessie. Can you fireball it from here? If not, can you make a fireball go in the sky so it comes to investigate?"
[18:41] Shadowcaller: "My aim is not very good, I doubt I can hit it from this distance… but if you wish I guess I can make a fireball, I hate to give away our position thought."
[18:42] Murska: 'Ai can't make it wish to come this way?'
[18:42] Shadowcaller: "Maybe… he seems a bit depressed really."
[18:43] Murska: (try to make it fast, though, I got to go soon :()
[18:43] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "Ai, can you make that bird come here?"
[18:45] Shadowcaller: Ai looks up, she/he seem to be much more quiet since you started your journey (as you might have noticed.)
[18:45] Shadowcaller: "I guess I can try…"
[18:45] Shadowcaller: "But make some noise first, that would help."
[18:45] Happy: Happy yells a barbarian battle cry.
[18:46] Shadowcaller: The bird appears to hear it and comes closer
[18:46] Happy: As soon as it's within arrow range, Happy shoots.
[18:47] Shadowcaller: The arrow just goes past the bird, that caws madly as some of its feathers falls of cuase of the arrow.
[18:47] Murska: same
[18:48] Happy: *keep shooting*
[18:48] Murska: Aegnor's shot, with a more powerful bow
[18:48] Murska: does what?
[18:48] Shadowcaller: You hit the bird in the wing as it tries to fly off
[18:48] Shadowcaller: It goes down
[18:48] Murska: I run towards where it fell
[18:49] Happy: Do so as well. Can I sense it? Is it still alive?
[18:49] Shadowcaller: It is, smoke seems to come from the area it feel on
[18:49] Happy: Happy leads the way, since she has more information to go by.
[18:50] Shadowcaller: You see more smoke, something is burning
[18:51] Shadowcaller: (by the way Murska, are you a wolf in Civilization?)
[18:51] Murska: (no)
[18:51] Murska: (number eighteen on the map)
[18:51] Happy: Running that way.
[18:51] Murska: (smallest place ever)
[18:52] Shadowcaller: More flames can be seen, someoe has started a forest fire
[18:52] Shadowcaller: *someone
[18:52] Murska: still running
[18:53] Happy: Surely it won't spread far, with everything wet from the storm?
[18:53] Shadowcaller: You see flames moving in a way you think they are not supposed to be able to do…
[18:53] Happy: (fire elemental O.o)
[18:54] Shadowcaller: A small fire ball hits Aegnor in the chest
[18:54] Shadowcaller: A creature made of pure flame appears before you
[18:55] Murska: Aegnor puts out the fire, then drops his bow.
[18:55] Murska: 'I think we need something more than arrows.'
[18:55] Happy: Happy snarls, draws her sword, and charges. "For Kuori!"
[18:55] Shadowcaller: The creature roars and charges against happy
[18:56] Murska: Aegnor tries to talk to the tree without blanking out. /Put it out!/
[18:56] Happy: slash slash slash
[18:57] Shadowcaller: your sword strikes the creature as it tries to come close enough to hurt you, you can feel the intensive heat its emiting, your skin burns
[18:57] Shadowcaller: /put out?/
[18:57] Shadowcaller: /the pain?/
[18:57] Murska: /the fire thing/
[18:57] Happy: *ignore the pain, keep battling it* (can I feel if my strike hurt it?)
[18:58] Shadowcaller: It seems to hurt it, but not in the way it would hurt a creature of flesh
[18:59] Shadowcaller: You might want to retreat back a bit unless you want to get too severe burns
[18:59] Shadowcaller: /fire? what can't we see?/
[18:59] Shadowcaller: /Near of far?/
[18:59] Murska: /near/
[18:59] Happy: *make a fighting retreat then*
[18:59] Murska: /very close/
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Some of the trees nearby shakes a bit and drops all the rain they have collected on the ground, the creature hisses and huge cloud of mist comes from it
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Happys blade is almost too hot to touch at this point
[19:02] Murska: Aegnor throws wet mud at it.
[19:02] Shadowcaller: Its hard to see it in the mist
[19:03] Shadowcaller: Right now the forest reminds you of a rain forest (or dose who have seen it)
[19:03] Murska: into the middle of the mist, around where it was, then.
[19:03] Murska: (I have to go. :()
[19:03] Shadowcaller: You hear it hiss some more, the sound is quieter this time
[19:03] Happy: Happy drops the sword, and returns to shooting arrows.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[19:04] Happy: Is the prey weakening?
[19:04] Shadowcaller: The arrows seems to have very little effect on it
[19:04] Happy: (bai. good luck on getting your water back)
[19:04] Shadowcaller: (it is)
[19:04] Murska: 'You need to use cold and wet things!'
[19:04] Murska: more mud at it
[19:04] Happy: (is the mud hurting it?)
[19:04] Shadowcaller: (it is)
[19:04] Happy: Happy uses mud then
[19:04] Murska: (okay, keep IF-ing. Cya all. :()
[19:05] Shadowcaller: (bye)
[19:05] Happy: (bai)
[19:05] Shadowcaller: The mist gets thiker and the creature appears to be smaller too
[19:05] Shadowcaller: You can only see a small glow somewhere inside the mist
[19:05] Murska: /Thank you/
[19:06] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[19:06] Happy: *draw a dagger, go into the mist and try and finish it off, using prey-sense to track it*
[19:06] Shadowcaller: You sense the creature trying to hide behind a rock
[19:06] Shadowcaller: Its really tiny by now
[19:06] Happy: *stabstabstab*
[19:07] Happy: "Die, prey of Kuori!"
[19:07] Shadowcaller: The light is gone, it seems to have been reduced to ash
[19:07] Shadowcaller: You feel energy fill your whole body as it dies
[19:07] Shadowcaller: Your burn wounds are gone
[19:07] Happy: oooh, nice
[19:08] Shadowcaller: A nice cool feeling… but there is still fire (not the litteral kind thought) burning inside you
[19:09] Shadowcaller: You want more of this
[19:10] Shadowcaller: "What happend?" Cessie appears to have caught up with you, Ai slowly following in the background
[19:11] Happy: *reeling from the euphoric rush* "The prey turned into flame, but it did not escape."
[19:12] Shadowcaller: "You keep talking about preys… it turned into a fire elemental?"
[19:13] Shadowcaller: "You look… glowy."
[19:13] Shadowcaller: "I don't know a better word for it."
[19:14] Happy: "Kuori is empowering me. I felt his strength enter me and heal me when the prey died."
[19:14] Happy: (or maybe the druid is possessing her… >.>)
[19:15] Shadowcaller: "Okay, I never really seen you as this."
[19:15] Shadowcaller: "Is your scar gone?"
[19:15] Happy: "What? Why would.." *feels for the scar?*
[19:16] Shadowcaller: (it appears to partly healed, its almost gone.)
[19:16] Happy: "I was badly burned in the fight. But once the druid died, my wounds were healed."
[19:16] Happy: "I need to keep going. We need to kill more of the prey."
[19:17] Shadowcaller: "I- yes, but don't dare take such risks next time."
[19:17] Shadowcaller: "I can't bear to lose you only so you can kill some scouts."
[19:18] Happy: *looses single minded focus for a moment, walks over and hugs Cessie*
[19:19] Shadowcaller: *hugs back* She appears to be taken by suprise by this, her eyes are moist.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: "Happy… I just don't want to lose you."
[19:20] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to lose any of you."
[19:21] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes, savoring the moment
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Ai seems to lighten up beacuse of this, she/he smiles
[19:22] Happy: "I believe we will win. Kuori has chosen me for this battle."
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "Yeah.. but I don't want you to end up dead cuase of that… just take it a bit easy in the future."
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "Promise me that Happy."
[19:24] Happy: Happy doesn't promise. She tells Cessie about the conversation with Kuori the night before though.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "…So you have been choosen then? You appears to have a very strong connection to your god."
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "But remember that Kuori have other sides as well."
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "Its not all… what you see of him."
[19:27] Happy: (stop here?)
[19:27] Shadowcaller: (sure)
[19:27] Shadowcaller: (Aegnor needs to be here too^^)
