Mar 28

[18:33] Happy: Okay. Cessie wakes up to see the campfire built up. Two plucked and cleaned quail are nearby, along with a handful of small, speckled eggs on a pile of leaves.
[18:34] Happy: There's also a bowl of nuts and berries, mixed together.
[18:34] Happy: You don't see Happy anywhere though.
[18:35] Shadowcaller: (Hm aren't Aegnor supposed to awake earlier then me due elf traits?)
[18:37] Happy: (dunno)
[18:39] Happy: (Gonna wait for him to get back then?)
[18:40] Shadowcaller: (Not sure… maybe I can wake up earlier then him just for once >.>)
[18:41] Happy: (let's say all the emotional stuff makes him sleep late )
[18:41] Shadowcaller: *Yawns sleepily, carefully releases herself carefully from the sleeping Aegnor*
[18:41] Shadowcaller: *Notices she is naked*
[18:42] Shadowcaller: *looks for clothes*
[18:42] Murska: (back… God)
[18:42] Murska: (I was killing a hero Carnifex
[18:42] Murska: (and it's backup arrived… three MORE Carnifexes)
[18:42] Murska: (-.-)
[18:42] Shadowcaller: (too late!)
[18:42] Shadowcaller: (hehe)
[18:43] Happy: Aegnor is asleep. Cessie is pulling on her clothes. Happy is not around. Ai is…?
[18:43] Shadowcaller: Entertaining the Nymphs/Dryads
[18:44] Shadowcaller: In various ways
[18:45] Happy: Cessie gets dressed. Still no sign of Happy.
[18:46] Shadowcaller: Blows Aegnor in the ear softly
[18:46] Murska: Aegnor wakes up. (I hope.)
[18:47] Shadowcaller: (you hope?)
[18:47] Happy: Yes, he wakes up
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "Good Morning… again."
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "Looks like Happy is already up… somewhere, I guess she knows by now."
[18:50] Murska: Aegnor shakes his head a bit, then notices Cessie and smiles at her. 'Morning.'
[18:50] Shadowcaller: "Want anything?" *she looks at you thoughtfully*
[18:51] Murska: 'Other than waking up to see your face, I think I could do with something to eat.'
[18:53] Shadowcaller: She blushes "I hope I will get used to those comments someday." She gives you the bowel with nuts and berries. "Here."
[18:53] Murska: 'Thank you.'
[18:54] Shadowcaller: "I had hoped we could have talked with Happy by now… any idea how we should explain all this?"
[18:55] Shadowcaller: "I'm still pretty confused by it myself." *smiles*
[18:55] Happy: You can hear footsteps in the forest, and laughing voices, one of them Happy's.
[18:55] Murska: 'It'll work out.' *smile*
[18:56] Shadowcaller: "Looks like Happy is not bored at least…"
[18:57] Shadowcaller: "I'm a bit nervous about it actually, what wil she say?"
[18:57] Shadowcaller: *will
[18:58] Murska: 'Don't worry, I'm sure she'll understand.'
[18:58] Happy: Happy comes into the glade accompanied by a couple of dryads. Happy's left cheek is red and swollen, and she's carrying something wrapped in leaves. The dryads each have an armful of flowers.
[18:59] Shadowcaller: "Happy? What happend?" Cessie looks worried
[19:00] Happy: Happy giggles. "Honey!" One of the dryads dances over and flings the flowers in the air so that they fall down over Cessie and Aegnor. "Silly human tried to fool the bees the hard way."
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks a bit shocked
[19:01] Murska: Aegnor chuckles.
[19:02] Happy: Happy unwraps the leaves to reveal a dripping honeycomb. "Normally you smoke them out. I didn't know dryads could just ask them to leave."
[19:02] Murska: 'Hey, I can do that aswell.'
[19:03] Happy: "There ought to be cake. But honey and berries were the best we could do." Happy licks the honey off her own fingers.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "So.. I err guess you know?" Cessie looks embaressed
[19:05] Happy: "I saw you curled up asleep together."
[19:05] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'I guess that'll do if you promise to get us cake some day.'
[19:05] Shadowcaller: "Oh…"
[19:06] Happy: The dryads giggle at Cessie's embarrasment, but they soon disappear into their trees again, leaving behind their flowers.
[19:07] Shadowcaller: "It was my intention to make it so public…"
[19:08] Shadowcaller: "Happy… what do you think of this?"
[19:10] Happy: Happy looks at them both, and her expression turns serious for a moment. "I really want you both to be good to each other."
[19:12] Shadowcaller: "Why would we not be good to each other Happy? I… really like Aegnor."
[19:13] Murska: Aegnor looks at Cessie and his expression should be enough to show everyone present that he feels the same.
[19:14] Happy: Happy smiles broadly and hugs them both.
[19:14] Shadowcaller: "But I'm also freaking out a bit, but I guess its normal to me with a situation like this."
[19:14] Happy: Probably getting her sticky hands in Cessie's hair…
[19:15] Shadowcaller: She ignores it for now, just and is somewhere between very confused and happy
[19:16] Murska: Aegnor group-hugs enthusiastically. :P
[19:17] Shadowcaller: *-just
[19:17] Happy: "I need to get the quails cooking. And the eggs. And we'll need to leave soon."
[19:17] Murska: 'Yeah… I wish we didn't have to.'
[19:18] Shadowcaller: "How about the Dryads and the Nymphs?"
[19:18] Happy: "I'm not sure. They say they want to help, but I couldn't learn much from them about what they could do."
[19:19] Shadowcaller: "I think you should Aegnor about that I guess."
[19:20] Happy: "They were more interested in helping me find nuts and berries than talking about war."
[19:21] Murska: 'They would.'
[19:21] Shadowcaller: "They don't really got the right mind-set I guess… but they are not going to be unaffected if we fail."
[19:22] Happy: Happy puts the quails on the fire, then finally remembers to wash the honey off her hands.
[19:23] Happy: "I remember hearing stories though, when I was a child, of the trees marching to war. Do you think they could have some truth in them? Can dryads actually move their trees?"
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "I don't know… I was always more intrested in the darker things in the books."
[19:24] Murska: 'I've heard of such things, yes. But they haven't been used since the elves left.'
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "Druids are supposed to be able to control weather I have heard."
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "I don't know if thats true thought, only myths."
[19:26] Happy: "Aegnor, will you talk to them?"
[19:26] Murska: '…yeah, I guess I have to.'
[19:28] Happy: Happy is playing with the flowers while the food cooks, weaving them together in a chain.
[19:28] Murska: Aegnor gets up, finally, and after gathering his stuff goes on a quest to attempt to talk to the nature spirits.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "Good luck."
[19:29] Happy: Not much of a quest, since they peek out of their trees whenever he comes near them…
[19:30] Murska: (still worth XP? :P)
[19:30] Happy: A dryad drops out of a tree onto Aegnor's back and covers his eyes with her hands. "Gotcha!"
[19:31] Happy: Happy finishes her flower chain and joins the two ends into a necklace, then drops it around Cessie's neck. "You should have a new dress too. More that will have to wait."
[19:31] Murska: 'Yeah, you did.' Aegnor doesn't bother mentioning that if she were an enemy, she'd be pretty much dead. (:P)
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "What new dress?"
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "Isn't this a bit too much? I mean…"
[19:32] Happy: "Wouldn't it be a celebration for your people, when a woman chooses her first mate?"
[19:33] Shadowcaller: "Well… err… if we would have been at me would have to get married before we could have, have done that."
[19:33] Happy: "But it still would have been a celebration, right?"
[19:34] Shadowcaller: "Well, at the wedding yes."
[19:34] Happy: "You came to talk to us?" the dryad asks.
[19:35] Shadowcaller: "If I where at home intercourse before marriage is considered bad."
[19:35] Shadowcaller: * "at home intercourse before marriage is considered bad"
[19:36] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[19:36] Happy: "Do you feel like you did something wrong?" Happy asks seriously.
[19:36] Murska: 'My companions want me to ask you if you can help us in the war.'
[19:36] Shadowcaller: ""No, not at all really… I'm just a bit confused thats all, its all happening so fast."
[19:37] Happy: Dryad: "We already said we would. We don't want you to go without us."
[19:37] Shadowcaller: "I guess thats what happends when you let your emotions control your actions."
[19:37] Happy: Happy laughs. "I told you once that if you ever did that, you might learn to understand him."
[19:37] Murska: 'Yeah, they'd like to know what you can do. You know, can you fight?'
[19:39] Shadowcaller: "I remember that… I never really knew that it was going to end up like this thought."
[19:41] Happy: The dryad takes Aegnor's hand - the one that is wearing the ring - and holds it to her cheek. The voice in his head seems greater than that of just the one dryad who is with him. /We don't fight. We rage. Have you ever seen nature unleashed?/
[19:42] Happy: Happy: "No, I never expected it either."
[19:43] Murska: 'Indeed I have. But I have seen a lot of things.'
[19:44] Murska: 'If it is your choice, we welcome your assistance.'
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "True I feel attracted to him, but I thought it would just go away if I ignored it long enough, I didn't exactly understadn.."
[19:45] Happy: "You really love him?"
[19:46] Happy: /You speak to the Tree. The Tree speaks to us. Now that you know us, you can call us and we will come./
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "I don't know what love is yet, I always thought it as a very silly word… but I feel for him, very strongly."
[19:47] Murska: /Thank you./
[19:50] Happy: The dryad leans over Aegnor's head, hanging upside down, and kisses his nose. "We knew you'd like her hair longer," she says giggling.
[19:51] Murska: 'You should've asked her, though.'
[19:51] Happy: Happy laughs. "I feel for him very strongly too. But I wouldn't have mated with him."
[19:51] Shadowcaller: "Well, whats the difference between love and strong feeling then?"
[19:52] Shadowcaller: "I don't think I really understand the word."
[19:52] Happy: "I don't know. I love both of you, but I don't think that's what you're talking about."
[19:53] Shadowcaller: "Neither do I, they should invent a new word for attraction really…"
[19:54] Happy: The dryad laughs. "But she would have said no."
[19:55] Murska: 'I know what you mean… but it's still her hair.'
[19:55] Happy: Happy checks on the quail and starts cooking the eggs. "As long as you are both happy, does it matter what the word is?" The dryad pouts adorably.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "I guess the feeling itself is more important then the words describing it."
[19:57] Shadowcaller: *describing
[19:57] Happy: "Eat some of the honey. It's really good with the nuts and berries."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "You mentioned a dress?"
[19:58] Murska: 'So, how did you all like my music? I know it wasn't really much, but I am performing solo…'
[19:59] Happy: "If you were in the tribes, your uncle would have given you a new dress on the occasion. And your mother and aunts would have made the cake."
[20:01] Happy: Several more dryads appear, all of them talking at once. "You sound like wind in branches" "raindrops on leaves" "springtime birdsongs" "water over pebbles" "summer thunderstorms" "deer hooves on dried leaves" "melting icicles"
[20:02] Murska: 'Well, that sure is a colourful description.' *smile*
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "Quite diffrent from wizards then, we are supposed to keep ourself away from all family connections."
[20:02] Shadowcaller: "We are supposed to be neutral in everything due our powers."
[20:02] Happy: "… no family?" O.o
[20:03] Happy: "But now that we know you, we'll always be listening whenever you play."
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "The other wizards were our family, we just tried to keep the outside world from effecting out judgement."
[20:04] Murska: 'Hey, you're not supposed to listen when I rehearse.' *grin*
[20:05] Happy: "What is ree-hurss?"
[20:06] Murska: 'Practice.'
[20:06] Happy: "But your family is supposed to influence your judgement. How else can you learn what's right or wrong?"
[20:07] Happy: "Practice?"
[20:07] Shadowcaller: "Well, we are raised by our family of course, its just those who choose to become wizards that needs to follow this."
[20:08] Murska: 'I have to learn how to play things before I can actually go show it to the crowd. Or, well, usually I have to. 'Jamming' is what musicians call improvising.'
[20:10] Happy: It's clear from the look on the dryad's face that she has no idea what you are talking about. She looks baffled for a moment, then reaches out and slaps you playfully on the shoulder. "Tag! You're it!" And she races off.
[20:11] Murska: 'I don't think I have the strength to run around before I get to eat!'
[20:13] Happy: Another dryad pops her head out of a tree. "I think your dead animals are finished being burnt." She makes a >.< face and disappears again.
[20:14] Murska: 'Good, then I think I'll go have my innards turn them into a fine paste and suck out all energy in them to power my functions.'
[20:14] Murska: Aegnor walks back to the food. Oh, and the group. :P
[20:15] Happy: (XD)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still talking with Happy
[20:16] Happy: Cessie is still wearing a necklace of flowers. And the food is ready.
[20:16] Shadowcaller: She takes it off
[20:17] Murska: 'My sense of smell has informed me of a possibility of there being some nourishment nearby?'
[20:18] Happy: "Indeed. Breakfast is ready."
[20:19] Murska: Aegnor's face lights up. 'You really know how to cheer me up.'
[20:19] Shadowcaller: "Its quite easy you know." *smile*
[20:20] Murska: 'Yeah, you two are just so good at it.'
[20:22] Shadowcaller: "You are good at making us happy."
[20:22] Murska: 'That's got to be my most cherished talent, then.' *smile*
[20:22] Murska: 'Now, cut the chatter and let me at the food!'
[20:23] Shadowcaller: "Take what you want, I think I will just have some meat."
[20:25] Murska: Aegnor gathers a large amount of edible substances on something non-edible, then, after eating the edible substances and ascertaining himself of the non-edibleness of the substance they were on, looks hopefully at any remaining food.
[20:26] Shadowcaller: (you could just have looked up a bit in the chat and find what was for breakfast you know:P)
[20:26] Murska: (But that wouldn't have been worth it. :P)
[20:26] Happy: (quail, eggs, berries, nuts, and honey)
[20:26] Murska: (quail, yeah, that's what it was
[20:27] Murska: (I did remember everything else)
[20:28] Happy: Happy encourages Cessie to try the honey.
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "I have eaten honey before, we had quite a lot of it back home actually."
[20:29] Shadowcaller: *eats honey and meat*
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "You have made all this for us?"
[20:31] Happy: "I only caught the quails. The dryads brought the eggs down and gathered the rest. Oh, and you know about the honeycomb adventure," she says, touching the sting on her face.
[20:32] Murska: Aegnor manages to somehow keep eating non-stop while speaking: 'Next time I hope you'll let me gather the honey.'
[20:33] Happy: "Not when it's a gift for you."
[20:33] Shadowcaller: "You don't needed to do all this Happy…"
[20:36] Happy: She shrugs, with a little sadness in her expression. "Who knows when we'll next have a chance to celebrate? We need to move on soon."
[20:38] Shadowcaller: "We do… and I was just getting used to all this."
[20:39] Happy: Happy is silent for a moment.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: "How long until we leave? Maybe we can have.. you know like a farwell party or something?" *tries to make up for her comment*
[20:41] Happy: "You two can stay. I'll go on ahead."
[20:42] Murska: 'No way.'
[20:42] Shadowcaller: "No… Aegnor and I will follow you. Nothing would be the same without you."
[20:45] Happy: "I *have* to go and fight the worm. I feel it in my gut." She presses her fist against her belly. "It's like a hunger, driving me. Every hour I'm off the trail of the prey the feeling gets stronger. It's all I can do to sit here with you now."
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Happy.. why didn't you say all this before?"
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "We need to go, now"
[20:50] Happy: "Because… " /Because you wanted to come here and Aegnor found his voice here and both of you were happy and I didn't want anything to spoil it…/ "Because it isn't that important. I can always scout ahead, and let you two catch up."
[20:51] Shadowcaller: "No, I'm not leaving you alone anymore, I'm coming with you."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: "We have the Dryads and the Nymphs support right Aegnor?"
[20:56] Murska: 'Yeah, they said they'd help us.'
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "Well, I can find out how they can help us later, we need to move, we have spend far too much time here."
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "It has been.. plesant, but there is a war waiting for us out there."
[20:58] Murska: 'We better make sure it doesn't get bored and wander off without us.'
[20:58] Murska: 'Let's go end a war.'
[20:58] Happy: (time for Murska to take over as GM?)
[20:59] Murska: (For an hour. :P)
[20:59] Murska: (Sure.)
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (sure, he needs to do it sometime)
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (SC session?)
[20:59] Happy: (or we could stop now and continue tomorrow)
[20:59] Murska: (nah, let's not stop yet. :P)
[20:59] Murska: (I got nothing to do before the SC session starts)
[21:00] Murska: (except that I'll go make food)
[21:00] Murska: (I suppose the group leaves the glade towards the army, which is strugging in the difficult terrain.)
[21:01] Shadowcaller: (indeed)
[21:01] Murska: (We were at G2, right?)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: We was
[21:02] Shadowcaller: *were
[21:03] Happy: (Where's Ai?)
[21:03] Murska: (Do I have to control him too?)
[21:03] Shadowcaller: (Following us now I guess >.>)
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (I think Happy let me control him, but you can if you like.)
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (And its a her too you anyway.)
[21:04] Murska: (less work for me = good :))
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (Why is always something that is not exactly female seen as male? o.O)
[21:04] Happy: Ai was busy fulfilling the desires of the nymphs and dryads….
[21:05] Murska: (Him is faster to write)
[21:05] Shadowcaller: (Right…)
[21:05] Murska: The group travels towards the army. They're at the western edge of F2.
[21:05] Happy: (Aegnor hardly ever talks to Ai, so he's usually been male in our transcripts)
[21:05] Murska: (the group is, not the army)
[21:06] Murska: (brb edible substances are required)
[21:06] Shadowcaller: (Okay)
[21:14] Murska: (k, back)
[21:14] Shadowcaller: (Really?)
[21:15] Murska: (possibly)
[21:16] Happy: Happy is leading the way, probably faster than is comfortable for Cessie.
[21:16] Murska: Aegnor is walking with Cessie.
[21:17] Murska: Happy senses that the army has slightly scattered. The main body is nearing the edge of the swamp but there are groups of enemies a bit ahead of it and to it's sides, trying to find faster routes.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "Well, we are going fast atleast.."
[21:19] Murska: 'You keeping up?' Aegnor looks at Cessie, worried.
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Ill try." *smile*
[21:20] Shadowcaller: "I can do anything with you." *whisper*
[21:22] Murska: Aegnor smiles at her. 'Don't push yourself, at least when it isn't necessary.'
[21:24] Shadowcaller: "I think its necessary now…"
[21:24] Murska: 'I'm sure the war won't end before we get there.'
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "I'm a bit worried, all this has happend to us now… and now we might die?"
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "It feels like a whole new life has started for me, and I don't want to end it."
[21:30] Murska: 'I won't let you die.'
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "I won't let you die Aegnor, I can defend myself, maybe even better then you can." *smile*
[21:32] Murska: Aegnor smiles at her. 'Don't worry about me, I have a longer experience in surviving anything this life throws at me than you have of breathing.'
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Well see about that, I plan to live quite long:" *smile*
[21:33] Happy: Happy has drawn far ahead by now.
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Hm, maybe we should try to keep yp."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: *up
[21:33] Murska: 'Yeah. She'll head into trouble soon.'
[21:34] Murska: The group starts nearing the army and the terrain suddenly changes. There are large boulders and rocks everywhere along with deep pits and odd cliffs in the middle of nowhere.
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "So here we are…" (do we see Happy?)
[21:37] Murska: Yeah, you picked up the pace, she's still ahead but not out of sight.
[21:37] Happy: Happy stops before the terrain gets too bad.
[21:38] Shadowcaller: *tries to catch up with Happy*
[21:38] Murska: 'Hmm. What should we do?'
[21:39] Happy: "Find them."
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "You are the one with the plans, I'm afraid I don't much about tactic."
[21:39] Happy: Happy tries to locate the nearest prey.
[21:40] Murska: There's a group of them, but they're still a while away and in the middle of the worst terrain.
[21:40] Murska: And the main group is almost at sight range from them.
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "So, where are they?"
[21:41] Happy: Happy shares her info.
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "Can you see how many they are, and what they are?"
[21:42] Happy: (she can, right?)
[21:43] Shadowcaller: (ask Murska)
[21:43] Happy: (you invented the power)
[21:44] Murska: (I dunno, really. :P)
[21:44] Shadowcaller: (You can, numbers, and units, but you can't see the difference between undead untis thought.)
[21:44] Murska: (numbers is a given, so she can distinguish between druids, worms and undead?)
[21:45] Shadowcaller: (between druids and undead, but not undead and worms)
[21:47] Murska: (Well, the nearest group has three druids and fourty undead)
[21:47] Happy: "Three druids and forty undead. We can take them."
[21:47] Happy: Happy starts off in that direction.
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (remember, there is different types of undead.)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: *are
[21:48] Murska: The terrain is very difficult to navigate.
[21:48] Happy: (Happy is a wee bit obsessed. Right now she feels like a smoker who's been told there are three cartons and forty cigarettes in that direction)
[21:48] Murska: The group seems to not get closer at all, they're barely making any progress.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: (we got these: (Link: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG225.jpg)http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG225.jpg)
[21:50] Shadowcaller: These: (Link: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG119.jpg)http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG119.jpg
[21:50] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG265.jpg)http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG265.jpg
[21:51] Shadowcaller: and of course, these: (Link: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG189b.jpg)http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG189b.jpg
[21:51] Murska: Aegnor, after painstakingly climbing past another cliff, stops. 'This isn't really working…'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: they are the most powerful type
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean?" *Cessie is not a very good clmiber
[21:51] Shadowcaller: *climber
[21:51] Happy: Happy is very frustrated. "We have to get to them!"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: She could fly thought
[21:53] Shadowcaller: "Is there any other group around?" (and where are the druids + Ai?)
[21:53] Murska: (Ai is following the group, and since you're controlling him, saying nothing thus far.)
[21:54] Shadowcaller: (Right…)
[21:54] Murska: (Druids are mostly in the main group, and dryads and nymphs are nowhere to be seen. I don't really know how to incorporate them but I guess I might work something out.)
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "Happy, is there any other group here?"
[21:55] Murska: This is the closest one, then there's the main group farther in the same direction and three other groups even farther.
[21:56] Happy: Happy shares all this info (let's just say this happens automatically from now on so I don't have to keep typing that part :P)
[21:57] Murska: (yah. :P)
[21:57] Happy: (And I was thinking the dryads and nymphs would allow Murska to channel nature magic, make storms and earthquakes and stuff)
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "So… what are we going to do?"
[22:00] Murska: 'We need to somehow move faster.'
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "It seems hard to reach any of the groups.. there has to be a better way to do this."
[22:02] Shadowcaller: "Okay, lets see, they got a huge army and gods know what else, we got a lot of tricks to our disposal however."
[22:03] Murska: 'Not to mention that they're afraid.' *smile*
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "Of us? I doubt that."
[22:05] Murska: 'Don't underestimate your own force. They haven't managed to do anything to us yet, and we've cost them dearly.'
[22:05] Happy: Happy is trying very hard to scale a nearly vertical piece of terrain with very little success.
[22:06] Shadowcaller: Hm, maybe if we get the other servants?
[22:06] Shadowcaller: ""
[22:06] Murska: 'Happy, get a hold of yourself. Plan first, fight then.'
[22:08] Shadowcaller: *Well, are we coming up with a plan?"
[22:09] Murska: 'Hm. Well, I do agree with Happy that an opportunity to attack one of the groups isn't to be wasted, but it's going to be difficult to get there and even more difficult to run away if necessary.'
[22:09] Murska: 'Didn't you have that flying spell?'
[22:09] Happy: "Damn it!" Happy curses, as she falls to the ground again.
[22:09] Murska: Aegnor walks to Happy and places a hand on her shoulder.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I do…. please calm down Happy."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "If I use it on Happy…"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Not sure how many charges of fly I have."
[22:11] Happy: Happy sobs in frustration and pounds her fists against the wall of earth.
[22:11] Murska: 'If you use it on Happy and then find out we can't follow her..'
[22:11] Murska: The wall doesn't budge.
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "Please Happy…"
[22:13] Happy: Their words finally seem to sink in, and she drops her hands to her side, breathing heavily, but calmer.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "We are trying to figure something out, I think you can help us."
[22:15] Shadowcaller: "Happy, how many groups are there?"
[22:15] Murska: (four and the main one)
[22:16] Happy: "There are four scouting groups, and the main army."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "Any flying scouts?"
[22:17] Murska: (none moving fast.)
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "So, we should try to take out the small groups.."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Whats the closest besides this one?"
[22:20] Murska: (The groups are arranged as such: There's the main group, on either side there is a scouting group. There are two groups a bit in front and to the side of the main group, evidently trying to find faster ways forward. You don't quite get what the two groups to the side are doing, however.)
[22:21] Happy: (and which one is the one we're after? one of the side groups or one of the forward groups?)
[22:21] Murska: (side)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "We should try to find the closest forward group."
[22:23] Happy: "Okay. Maybe there's another way."
[22:24] Murska: Aegnor lets go of Happy's shoulder and turns to the group. 'We really need a way to move faster. Even if we reach the group, we'd be unable to run away if the main group attacks us.'
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "But what? Should we ask for horses?"
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "I don't know any magic that could increase our speed really."
[22:26] Murska: 'Horses would be even slower here.'
[22:26] Murska: 'The flying spell would work, if it has charges.'
[22:26] Murska: (I have no idea if it does, btw. -.-)
[22:27] Shadowcaller: (it has atleast one)
[22:27] Murska: 'Or just getting away from here, giving up on the small groups and bypassing the earthquake area to prepare for the enemy's arrival.'
[22:27] Happy: (I left that vague enough for the GM to decide each time)
[22:27] Murska: (BTW, the SC session started so I might be a bit slow/absent again at times
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (Maybe I should take over?)
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (OR Happy?)
[22:28] Murska: (I can do it, I'm just observing)
[22:28] Murska: (at least for now, since I have a plan for once. :P)
[22:28] Murska: 'We need to decide on something, really.'
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (Oh, plans are good)
[22:28] Happy: (I'm starting to feel bedtime coming on though. But I'll be around whenever tomorrow.)
[22:29] Murska: (Well maybe we shouldn't get into a combat scene today then.)
[22:29] Murska: (I'll be around tomorrow aswell.)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (Indeed)
[22:30] Happy: (Cessie could always try to learn the spells that are stored in the wand so that she can cast them herself. I think that would be within her capabilities, if she spent time studying it.)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (That would be a good idea really.)
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "Hm, I might be able to learn the fly spell, if I get some time to study it."
[22:33] Happy: "I should scout ahead while you do that."
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… what are you going to do?"
[22:35] Murska: (was observing a fail DT/sair, sorry)
[22:35] Shadowcaller: (
)
[22:35] Murska: 'I'd rather we stayed together… Without Happy, we don't know where the enemy is, and scouting ahead would be fruitless since we already know where they are.'
[22:36] Happy: "But we don't know how to get to them."
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "We don't know the area however."
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "happy can't get in danger, she alwasy know where they are."
[22:36] Murska: 'Flying seems to be what we're trying.'
[22:37] Murska: 'And I still maintain that without a way to easily move in such an enviroment, we shouldn't attack.'
[22:37] Shadowcaller: "Well, I need at least one charge to learn the spell."
[22:39] Happy: (Happy fully intends to attack as soon as she sees them, whether she's alone or not. Whether or not the others realize this is up to them)
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "Okay, I guess we can set camp somehwere the? Its still quite early…"
[22:40] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is most intrested in Aegnor right now)
[22:41] Murska: 'Well, we wouldn't camp for the night. Just for long enough for you to study the spell, if you think you can learn it fast enough for it to be useful.'
[22:41] Murska: 'The other option is, as I said, making our way to easier terrain and getting ready for the enemy's arrival.'
[22:41] Murska: (Aegnor suspects that, Happy)
[22:41] Murska: (That's why he doesn't want to leave her alone)
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "I don't like to be trapped…"
[22:42] Murska: 'If we are trapped here, we die.'
[22:43] Murska: 'Think of what'd happen if we do catch up with them and attack and then one of us is wounded?'
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "…Happy can heal us, but I can see your point."
[22:44] Murska: 'And what if Happy is knocked unconscious or something? Or if the druids decide to attack at us with all they have?'
[22:44] Murska: 'It's just too dangerous.'
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "So we retreat back then?"
[22:44] Murska: 'Or learn to fly.'
[22:45] Murska: 'Three druids shouldn't have a chance to a suprise attack and the zombies can't fly.'
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "Well, let me get some hours…"
[22:45] Murska: (I guess we leave it at this then? I'm GMing next time aswell.)
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[22:47] Murska: (keep RPing if you wish, I'll even comment whenever I'm not in SC. :P)
[22:47] Happy: Happy will take watch. But Cessie might find it hard to concentrate with her around. The tension is coming off her in waves.
[22:47] Murska: Aegnor will try to keep an eye on both Cessie and Happy.
[22:48] Happy: (What's Ai doing?)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: Right now, he is looking at Cessie a bit mysteriosly
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie sits down to study, she seem to have a hard time concentrating however
[22:51] Murska: (I really think that if Mordy is really being protected in SWW2, they're making it WAY too obvious)
[22:53] Shadowcaller: Cessie studies the wand but sighs and it seems she need to start over again
[22:54] Happy: (You're saying this to one person who isn't in the game and one person who can't comment about it? XD)
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (it would seem so, I alwasy commented about S.E.U. thought >.>)
[22:54] Shadowcaller: *always
[22:55] Murska: (Yeah, it's not like anyone I usually talk to about games is playing)
[22:56] Murska: (If Mord is a mason, the wolves got a nice targetlist. If a wolf… the opposite
[22:56] Happy: (yeah, but there's a lot more to say about a complex game. In a game with three roles, there's hardly anything I could say.)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (where is happy anyway?)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (I guess
)
[22:56] Happy: Happy is nearby, pacing restlessly.
[22:56] Murska: (if a villager, then sheesh. Stop copying me)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (But S.E.U. is not that complicated right? >.>)
[22:57] Murska: Aegnor is sitting nearby, keeping watch on both Happy and Cessie.
[22:57] Happy: (it's delightfully complex, like a logic puzzle. though I was totally wrong about who the agents were)
[22:57] Happy: (I'll probably talk less than you do when I run it. I'm always paranoid I'll give something away by accident.)
[22:58] Shadowcaller: Ai ponders around, watching whats going on at camp
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (Any idea what setting you are going to use?:P)
[22:58] Happy: (Are you sure you want me to run it?)
[22:58] Murska: (I'd still rather you played but oh well. :P)
[22:58] Happy: Happy's desires are pretty much *KILL PREY*
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (Sure, why not?)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (Hm, maybe I will narrate anyway >.<)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: *>.>
[22:59] Murska: (Nah, I want you to play aswell. :P)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (But I'm not as fun
[22:59] Shadowcaller: Ai walks up to Happy
[22:59] Murska: (She'd just overscheme me anyway)
[23:00] Happy: (How about an office building, suddenly sealed off by SEU after getting a tip?)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (You know a lot about office buildings don't you?)
[23:01] Happy: (Murska just wants to day one lynch me. And in SEU he just might accomplish it.)
[23:01] Murska: (Meh, I don't think I would, really. I'd point at you but not really try to lynch you.)
[23:01] Murska: (That'd be wasting someone who could be a great asset.)
[23:01] Happy: (David would try ^^)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (Not sure what Horrors would do in a office thought.)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (Lovers: Bad or good idea?)
[23:02] Happy: (Horrors don't care *where* they are. They'd just want to feed.)
[23:02] Murska: (Depends.)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Since they aren't controled by Glacier anymore…)
[23:03] Shadowcaller: (Thats the name of the organization that controlled them.)
[23:03] Murska: (Okay, Aegnor will try to not disturb Cessie and will be worried about Happy. I got to play now.)
[23:03] Shadowcaller: (But now they are contolled by a queen…)
[23:04] Happy: (Not directly though. They should still be blind.)
[23:04] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… how do you explain that they have increased their numbers?)
[23:04] Happy: (She lays eggs. But she isn't around when they hatch, so she doesn't know what happens to them)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: (Since Glacier manipulated their DNA so they would die once they infected someone else, just to prevent them from spreading.)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: (She lays eggs? o.O SO they mate?)
[23:06] Happy: (Maybe she learned something from consuming Kerri's brain?)
[23:06] Happy: (Is Ai going to say anything to Happy?)
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (He is, unless you want to go ot bed)
[23:06] Shadowcaller: *to
[23:07] Happy: (Sure, go ahead)
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Hm, there is a lot of changes going on, you have noticed this as well?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "Its desire in the air.."
[23:08] Happy: "Cessie and Aegnor?"
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "As well as you." *smile*
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "But another kind…"
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "She can't stop thinking of him you know…"
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "I'm afraid their last night unleashed something within her."
[23:10] Happy: Happy smiles weakly. "I guess it's good for you then, that they are together."
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "Well, while I am happy for them, her poor concentration on the task at hand worries me a bit… and thats quite alien to me."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "If you understand what I mean."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "Personally, I think the best solution, is letting the emtions work and and then go to work."
[23:13] Happy: "You mean, we should leave them alone for a while?"
[23:13] Shadowcaller: "Exactly." *smiles*
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "They need to get something out of their system if you know what I mean."
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "She is confused…"
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "You are also a bit confused…"
[23:16] Happy: Happy starts moving away from where Cessie is studying. "What do you mean?"
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Are we talking about you, or her?"
[23:17] Happy: "I understand why she's confused. Why do you think I am?"
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "Its rage filling inside you, you don't know how to handle it."
[23:17] Happy: "Sure I do. Kill the prey."
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "Its not really natural…"
[23:18] Happy: "I'm fighting an unnatural enemy. Once they're destroyed, I won't have it anymore."
[23:18] Shadowcaller: "Well, if you can't rush head along into the fight then? I only wish for you to understand your desire."
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Will be able to contain all your rage Happt?"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: *Happy
[23:21] Happy: Happy hugs herself "Something's changed inside me, Ai. I'm not the same person I used to be."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "What do you think have changed? I only want you to be at peace with yourself."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "If this rage is consuming you, why did you accept it?"
[23:23] Happy: Happy and Ai are probably out of Cessie's sight by now.
[23:24] Shadowcaller: They are
[23:24] Happy: "This is right for me. I know it is. I'm only being consumed now because I was off the trail for too long."
[23:25] Murska: (right, back for a moment)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "I must ask you, do you really know your god?"
[23:26] Shadowcaller: Ai and Happy have walked off, Aegnor can only see Cessie right now
[23:27] Murska: Aegnor had decided to keep near Cessie instead of following Happy.
[23:27] Happy: "I - No. Not with my mind. But I know him in my gut."
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "You know about his hunts? You know about "natural selection"?
[23:28] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to have a heard time concentrating
[23:28] Happy: "No."
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you should ask him next time then? Its not my bussnies yo tell other gods how to do their work."
[23:29] Murska: Aegnor gets up and walks to Cessie. 'I don't want to disturb but you seem like you can't really focus.'
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "But… its cruel, in my opinion."
[23:30] Happy: "Please… tell me. I want to know."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks up "You noticed that huh? I can't stop thinking of what has happend."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "Very, well, I shall follow your desire, Kuori often possess a human and goes on a hunt after certain inviduals."
[23:31] Shadowcaller: "Can you?"
[23:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie said the last part
[23:32] Happy: "After… people?"
[23:32] Murska: '…no, I can't say that I can.'
[23:32] Murska: 'I'm trying to focus on thinking how to win the war instead, but it's tough.'
[23:32] Shadowcaller: "Yes, people, among other things."
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "It is to me too, the emotions are boiling up…"
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "My mistress have informed me about his hunts."
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "The last one was in a small village called "kyou."
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "I can't stop thinking of you." (Cessie)
[23:36] Happy: Happy is silent for a moment before answering. "How does he choose the prey?"
[23:36] Murska: 'I can't keep myself from staring at you all the time. It's very distracting, I'll give you that.'
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Well… at that time it was a very elusive creature, a fox-spirit."
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "It was tricking him, I have heard."
[23:38] Murska: (game again. I'll try to get killed fast)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (okay
)
[23:39] Shadowcaller: (Cessi) "Maybe we should…"
[23:39] Happy: Happy suddenly shakes her head. "That has nothing to do with this war. He told me I would always be able to make my own decisions."
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "Thats true, there are good things about him, thats true."
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "Not that this is the official opinion of my mistress." *smiles*
[23:40] Shadowcaller: (repeating words!)
[23:41] Shadowcaller: "I just want you to know that everything is not what it appears."
[23:42] Happy: "If Cessie and Aegnor … if this had happened before I met Kuori, I think I might have been envious."
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Of what?"
[23:43] Shadowcaller: He smiles knowlingly
[23:44] Happy: "Their happiness. Their belonging to one another. I would have felt left out."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "But you feel the presence of your god now?"
[23:45] Happy: "Yes. No. I mean, not exactly. Not him exactly. But my purpose. My mission. I feel that."
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "I see… what else would your "mission" be then? To me it sounds like the mission you have been given is the same you would do anyway."
[23:50] Happy: "Yes, I would still be trying to stop them. But I wouldn't *know*."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Still, this desire burning in your mind, is it really worth it?"
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Will it even end once you killed them all?"
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Do you know?"
[23:51] Murska: 'Should what?'
[23:51] Happy: "I know that it all had to happen. Leaving my tribe… my uncle… it was all part of a greater purpose."
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Never mind, I- just need to take my mind on something else, then I can concentrate, I hope."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "You are a choosen one, you might have felt the truth."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: upper is Cessie, lower is Ai
[23:54] Murska: (I have no idea what she's trying to say, again)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (damn you and you missconceptions.)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: *your
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (lets take that again shall we?)
[23:55] Murska: (well, 'take my mind on something else' = ?)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (obvious mispellings that hunts me forever.)
[23:56] Murska: (forums are so dead -.-)
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "I need to take my mind off this for a moment, I can't concentrate."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: (I am aware.)
[23:57] Murska: 'Yeah, if you think that's for the best.'
[23:57] Murska: Aegnor sits down next to her.
[23:57] Happy: "I think it will end when I've killed them all. But if it doesn't…" She shrugs. "If it doesn't, then it doesn't."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "So you are willing to let it consume you then? Thats your great destiny?"
[23:59] Happy: "My life for the Tree, and all the lives it supports? It's worth it."
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "So…" (Cessie.)
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "You can comprimise you know, the tree can still be saved."
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "What are we going to do?" (Cessie)
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "My mistress was willing to give you a wish, do you remember?" (Ai)
[00:02] Happy: "I remember."
[00:02] Murska: 'What do you want to? What do you do to relax and get your mind off things?'
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Well I… maybe you can rub my back a bit?" (Cessie)
[00:04] Murska: 'Of course.'
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "You can still take that choice you know, she just requires a favor in return."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: Cessie turns around
[00:05] Happy: "I don't think your goddess could save the tree with a single wish."
[00:05] Murska: Aegnor starts. (and is silent for a while, game again)
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Maybe, maybe not, she could still help, you could see the limits of her powers."
[00:08] Happy: "And what might she ask in return?"
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "Not all mortals are offered this chance, I think there is more to you then just one gods love. I think you attract attention from all directions."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "That, I do not know."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "I guess its up to you and her to decide that."
[00:11] Happy: "But why? Why me?"
[00:11] Shadowcaller: Cessi seems to enjoy Aengors backrub, soon enough she lays down
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "I do not know, there are threads here that I don't understand."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you should have become a pristess instead Happy, of the hunter?"
[00:13] Happy: "Maybe you should call me by my real name. Chelonie."
[00:14] Happy: "The girl my papa called Happy seems to be long gone."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "I do not see such things, I only see desire."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "Times changes sadly… you have kept that name for him ahve you not?"
[00:15] Shadowcaller: *have
[00:16] Happy: "Yes, I kept it for him. My uncle hated it. It was the only time I took my father's side in something over my uncle's."
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "We are all trying to preserve the memories of happier times…"
[00:18] Happy: "Your goddess frightened me. But I feel like I can trust you. That doesn't even make sense."
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "I was human, she was never that."
[00:19] Shadowcaller: "Thats why the gods use servants, to make a bridge between them and mortals."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "Kuori rarely uses servants however, they are free to do as they wish."
[00:21] Happy: "Can I ask you a question?"
[00:21] Shadowcaller: "Of course, anything you desire."
[00:22] Happy: "Did you do something to Cessie, to release her self-restraint?"
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "…why do you ask that?"
[00:25] Happy: "I know your mistress doesn't believe in inhibitions."
[00:27] Shadowcaller: "So? That don't mean she is trying to eliminate them."
[00:28] Happy: "But that doesn't answer the question."
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "Why would I do such a thing?"
[00:29] Shadowcaller: "I would not earn anything from it, and why do you think anything has happend to her anyway?"
[00:30] Happy: "It was so sudden. Last night, she told me she'd never give herself to someone else."
[00:30] Murska: (back)
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "Hm, well emotions can be sudden things."
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "I should know after all."
[00:32] Happy: "Then you didn't?"
[00:33] Shadowcaller: "Her feelings very her own, I can assure you that."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: (scroll up the see the last response to Aegnor.)
[00:34] Murska: (hmm. Well, I don't think I still have anything to say. :P)
[00:34] Shadowcaller: (but you can do something right?)
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "I can't *give* people feelings."
[00:35] Murska: (I'm just rubbing her back for now. We're discussing the last game. 3-2 TMM is really hard.)
[00:35] Shadowcaller: (do that then, I excpect something more later on >.>)
[00:36] Happy: "I know you didn't make her feel it. But you might have made it easier for her to express it."
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "What could I have earned from that?"
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "I mean, there is a lot all of you repress, I can feel it."
[00:37] Happy: "What do you mean, 'earned'?"
[00:38] Shadowcaller: "Well, if I made such a thing, why would I do it?"
[00:38] Happy: "Because you believe in desire being fulfilled?"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "Well, why would I not use the same on you?"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "Why on her?"
[00:41] Happy: "I'm already doing what I desire. Or I will be, once we get moving again."
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor then?"
[00:42] Happy: "Was he repressing his desires?"
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "Everyone dose to a grade."
[00:43] Happy: "But Cessie more than most people."
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "That might be true yes, but why is it so difficult to belive she did it on her own?"
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "Feelings are strange things after all."
[00:45] Happy: "If you tell me that you didn't interfere, I'll believe you. And if you tell me you did, I won't tell Cessie or Aegnor. I wouldn't do anything to upset their happiness."
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "…you know I can't lie right?"
[00:47] Happy: "You can't? Even if someone desires to hear something that isn't true?"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "What have I been doing right now?"
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "You may not have noticed it, but I have been avoiding your question for quite some time, there are millions of ways to avoid telling the truth."
[00:49] Happy: "I have noticed, yes."
[00:50] Shadowcaller: "Just beacuse I can't lie don't mean I need to tell you the truth."
[00:50] Happy: "Even though you told me you would answer my question?" Happy asks, but her tone is teasing rather than accusatory.
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "…what question was that?"
[00:52] Happy: Happy laughs. "You're distracting me from the hunt, at least. But it doesn't matter. I don't need to know."
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "I don't even remember what you asked." *smiles*
[00:54] Shadowcaller: "Would you have been okay with it?"
[00:56] Happy: "Probably not. But I wouldn't tell her."
[00:56] Murska: (back again for a while)
[00:57] Shadowcaller: "I'm just trying to see what my bounderies are." *smile*
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "I guess it will remain a secret then."
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "So, what am I allowed to do then?"
[02:00] Happy: "You have to do what you think is right."
[02:01] Shadowcaller: "But… you don't know me that well."
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "So I can do anything, as long as I think its right?"
[02:02] Happy: "I know you well enough to trust that your intentions are good. But why would I impose my will on you?"
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "You have alwasy been, your desire is my law remember?"
[02:03] Murska: (Civ updated, axis gone)
[02:03] Murska: (oddly enough, two civilizations from right next to me disappeared. :))
[02:03] Murska: (Maybe Finland will grow. :P)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: *always
[02:05] Happy: "And if I desired you to be free of that?" *smiling*
[02:05] Shadowcaller: "Then I guess I can do whatever I want…"
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "But do you trust me with that?"
[02:06] Happy: "Whatever you want, within your own moral boundaries. Just like the rest of us."
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "But I'm a avatar of desire, you don't know what I hide behind this facade."
[02:09] Happy: "How do I know what anyone hides behind their appearance? All I can do is judge them based on their actions."
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "Lets say I did it then, and I did it on my own will, would you still trust me?"
[02:10] Murska: (meanwhile)
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "You suspect me of that, and then you want me to act on my own?"
[02:10] Shadowcaller: (you start it:P)
[02:12] Murska: (I suppose that after traveling so fast and then over such horrible terrain, Cessie'd be rather tired.)
[02:13] Shadowcaller: (a bit, yes, its still mide-day thought)
[02:13] Shadowcaller: *mid
[02:13] Happy: "Yes, I would still trust you. And I do still trust you."
[02:14] Shadowcaller: "But that would imply it was okay right?"
[02:14] Murska: Aegnor hums with a low voice while rubbing her back. (Hm. The timelines of these two conversations seem to have diverged at some point rather considerably. :P)
[02:14] Shadowcaller: (I know)
[02:15] Happy: (It was a long backrub)
[02:15] Shadowcaller: ()
[02:15] Happy: "I don't believe in one universal set of morals."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "You are avoiding my question."
[02:16] Murska: (Luckily his fingers are really strong. :P)
[02:16] Happy: "If you did something I disagreed with, it wouldn't cost you my trust."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "Is it okay, or not?"
[02:18] Happy: "I don't know." Her honest answer.
[02:18] Shadowcaller: (Cessie) She turns around, "That feel really relaxing… maybe I can focus now, or do you wan to do something else?" *smile*
[02:18] Shadowcaller: *want
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "They seems to enjoy it at least."
[02:20] Happy: "That's what makes me unsure. But, I don't have to know. It's not something I can do, so I don't have to worry about whether I should."
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "It was you who asked after all."
[02:22] Murska: Aegnor looks at her. 'Well, at least one of us can concentrate now, eh?' *smile*
[02:22] Shadowcaller: "You still can't?"
[02:23] Murska: 'Well, you are really quite distracting.'
[02:24] Shadowcaller: She blushes "You never said these things before, not like this."
[02:26] Shadowcaller: (Ai) "Now, should we take a little stroll perhaps?"
[02:27] Murska: 'I wasn't sure how you'd react.'
[02:28] Happy: "Okay." And as they walk. "What happens to you after the war?"
[02:28] Shadowcaller: "I like it actually, I just never heard anyone say it to me before."
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "I will serve someone else, a temple? a city? Who knows?"
[02:29] Happy: "Doesn't that bother you? Not knowing?"
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "I am bond to serve Negas will, thats why I am here."
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "But yes, there are times when it becomes a bit unpredictable."
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "Desire… can be extremly dark."
[02:31] Happy: "Like the hunt?"
[02:31] Shadowcaller: "What you see now is my "censured" form so to speak."
[02:31] Shadowcaller: "Well… yeah, I guess."
[02:32] Murska: Aegnor just looks at Cessie's face again for a while, phasing out. (for a short while, obsing again. :P)
[02:32] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[02:33] Murska: (or not, it seems. :P)
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "Want me to give you a backrub?"
[02:33] Happy: "Are you ever asked to do something you think is wrong?"
[02:33] Murska: 'If you wish… I've never had one.'
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (Cessi) "Neither had I until this moment, not sure I'm good at iy, but I can try."
[02:34] Shadowcaller: *it
[02:35] Shadowcaller: She starts to massage your shoulders
[02:35] Murska: She notices quickly that Aegnor is extremely tense.
[02:37] Shadowcaller: (Ai) "Thats a very hard question, I adapt to those around me Chelonie, I may not be the saem person you see right now."
[02:37] Shadowcaller: *same
[02:37] Happy: "But somewhere inside, you have the same soul."
[02:37] Shadowcaller: "You are.. really tense."
[02:38] Murska: 'I am? I guess…'
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "It retreats back I guess, thats why I use the facade, to protect it."
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Cessie tries to massage a bit harder, "How do that feel?"
[02:38] Happy: "And do you ever have regrets?"
[02:39] Shadowcaller: "I have, yes."
[02:39] Shadowcaller: "But so do you right?"
[02:40] Happy: "True. But I mean… do you ever regret things that you've done in service to your Mistress?"
[02:41] Shadowcaller: "Yes, as you must regret things you have done in the service of your tibe or the hunter."
[02:43] Shadowcaller: *tribe
[02:45] Happy: "Not the Hunter, yet. But I haven't been in his service long."
[02:46] Shadowcaller: "I'm sure there will be things you regret, he have given you the possibility to become one of his servants after all."
[02:47] Murska: 'It feels really nice…'
[02:47] Happy: "And if I do, that means putting that sort of life behind me," she says, waving a hand in the direction where they left the other two.
[02:48] Shadowcaller: "You think?" She leans a bit closer to your back, still rubbing your neck and back
[02:49] Murska: 'Yeah. It's so relaxing.'
[02:49] Shadowcaller: "Well, servants of the hunter have a freedom other servants do not have, but often they use this for.. about the same thing he uses his freedom to."
[02:50] Shadowcaller: She kisses your neck, "Try to close your eyes."
[02:51] Happy: "Did you have a mate and children when you were alive?"
[02:51] Shadowcaller: "Its hard to remember… but I think I had actually."
[02:51] Murska: Aegnor does as told. 'Mm…'
[02:52] Happy: "You don't remember?" Happy finds this more alarming than the warnings he gave her about Kuori.
[02:54] Shadowcaller: She keeps rubbing his back and then slowly she moves her hands to his ribs, hugging him from behind, she kisses your neck again.
[02:54] Shadowcaller: "Well, so much time has passed, and our memeory is not perfect."
[02:55] Happy: "But not to remember your own clan…"
[02:55] Shadowcaller: "Like you don't remember every person you met."
[02:55] Happy: "I don't want to forget my uncle. Or Cessie or Aegnor."
[02:55] Shadowcaller: "I'm positive you don't know every member of your clan."
[02:55] Shadowcaller: "Well, when you die, they might still be alive."
[02:56] Shadowcaller: "She wants immortallity, and he is immortal."
[02:56] Shadowcaller: "You would not forget them beacuse you become a servant."
[02:56] Happy: "Then how could you forget if you had a mate?"
[02:56] Shadowcaller: "Just if you didn't see them for a very, very long time."
[02:57] Shadowcaller: "She died… long before me."
[02:58] Shadowcaller: (Cessie) "I'm so glad for all this Aegnor, that I found you."
[02:59] Murska: 'It feels like a miracle.' Aegnor turns around slightly and opens his eyes to look at her again.
[02:59] Shadowcaller: "Didn't you say human/elf realtionship were rare by the way?"
[02:59] Shadowcaller: (she is behind you)
[03:02] Happy: "So you do remember."
[03:03] Shadowcaller: (Ai) "Thats why I don't remember so much about her."
[03:03] Murska: 'Yeah. They usually live separately and don't meet each other much.'
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "Half-elves then?"
[03:03] Shadowcaller: "A bit, yes."
[03:04] Shadowcaller: "But I don't even have a gender anymore."
[03:05] Murska: 'There were some, but not many. They tended to live amongst themselves, too.'
[03:05] Murska: 'According to the books I've read, that is. I don't know how accurate they are.'
[03:07] Shadowcaller: "But it must have been hard, living with someone you knew you would outlive."
[03:07] Happy: "And who is your family now, Ai?"
[03:08] Shadowcaller: "Dead of course, otherwise I would have visited them form time to time."
[03:09] Happy: "My family is dead too. But I found a new one. Did you?"
[03:09] Murska: 'Yeah. At least you intend to live forever.'
[03:10] Shadowcaller: (Cessie) "Yeah, now to find a way to do it, I don't want to grow old while you are still young…"
[03:11] Shadowcaller: "I never had time… the other servants and my godess are my family now."
[03:13] Shadowcaller: "How old are you now Aegnor?"
[03:13] Murska: 'I'm not sure exactly.' (hmm)
[03:13] Happy: "But you care for them? And they for you?"
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "I guess they do, I have had many temporary relationships, like we have right now."
[03:15] Shadowcaller: "You don't remember your own age?"
[03:16] Murska: 'Not exactly. It's between 160 and 200 years.'
[03:17] Happy: "I don't think I could serve your goddess. What you describe sounds like punishment to me."
[03:17] Shadowcaller: "And I'm 24, quite the difference… and yet we look as old."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: "Well, we are given what we want really, and in turn we must give others what they want."
[03:18] Shadowcaller: "And in a few years, I will look older then you are."
[03:19] Happy: "What could you want enough for that?"
[03:19] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems a bit depressed by this
[03:19] Murska: 'Nah… In a few years, we'll have found your immortality potion.' *smile*
[03:20] Shadowcaller: "Its hard to explain… you can't mesure it with mortal terms."
[03:21] Shadowcaller: "I hope I have, I don't want to die away from you…"
[03:21] Murska: 'My offer still stands, I could give you half my lifespan.'
[03:22] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to take your life Aegnor, I don't want to take anything from you."
[03:23] Happy: "I'm sorry. I shoudln't pry. One's desires… that's a pretty intimate thing to ask someone to share."
[03:23] Murska: 'You already have my heart, what would a bit of my life mean compared to that?'
[03:24] Shadowcaller: "What will you do once this war is over then?"
[03:25] Shadowcaller: She slowly pulls you down, so you are now laying on the ground "Your life means everything to me" She says as she kisses you.
[03:26] Happy: "I think… I can't be sure, not yet. But I think I belong to the Hunter."
[03:27] Shadowcaller: "Not to your friends? Do you feel yourself growing distant from them?"
[03:27] Happy: "If they needed me to, I would."
[03:28] Shadowcaller: "Why would they need you to do that?"
[03:29] Shadowcaller: "They have just found each other, their feelings is strongest right now."
[03:29] Shadowcaller: *are
[03:31] Shadowcaller: "I'm suprised they still can keep their their hands off each other."
[03:31] Happy: "I guess. It isn't something I've really experienced."
[03:31] Shadowcaller: "I don't think she have either, she can't really control it."
[03:32] Shadowcaller: "In some ways, she is like a child."
[03:32] Shadowcaller: (Cessie) "Should we.."
[03:33] Murska: Aegnor silences her with a kiss, pulling her on top of him.
[03:34] Happy: "I don't think I even *could* right now. I mean, I remember being kissed, and how it made me want things, even though I always stopped the boy before it went very far. But I don't think now, I would even be tempted."
[03:35] Shadowcaller: She embraces you, soon enough she have lost some of her clothes
[03:35] Shadowcaller: "You have a keen focus on your mission then?"
[03:36] Shadowcaller: Soon you have lost all your clothes
[03:36] Shadowcaller: (
)
[03:36] Happy: "I'd sacrifice almost everything for it."
[03:38] Shadowcaller: "How much is it worth compared to other things you love?"
[03:39] Shadowcaller: *sexy scenes between Cessie and Aegnor*
[03:39] Happy: "I wouldn't sacrifice them."
[03:39] Shadowcaller: (I declare this chat P-13 >.>)
[03:40] Shadowcaller: "Its good to know your priorites… hm, she is not studying anything at least."
[03:41] Shadowcaller: "Well, I think they will have easier concentrating after this."
[03:41] Shadowcaller: "Hopefully."
[03:42] Happy: Happy sighs. "If I can't hunt my prey, I could at least find our next meal."
[03:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, if you find any rabbits you can compare them to your friends." *Ai smiles at his own joke*
[03:44] Happy: "It should be easy hunting. Lots of lairs will have been disturbed in the quake. Do you want to join me?"
[03:45] Shadowcaller: "I don't know anything about hunting, but they will not be done for some time, so yes I guess I can join you."
[03:46] Murska: 'I sure hope you can concentrate now. After all, I don't think I could help you with it anymore.' *smile*
[03:46] Shadowcaller: *pants*
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "That was amazing… *her breath is still heavy*
[03:48] Happy: Happy takes her time hunting, ignoring smaller game in order to get enough food to last for some days. She finds herself very very tempted to abandon this hunt and return to her true hunt though, leaving everyone behind.
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "But yeah, I should go back to studying."
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "Let me just get my clothes…"
[03:48] Shadowcaller: "Um where did I leave them?"
[03:49] Murska: 'It's a pity… I love holding you like this.'
[03:50] Shadowcaller: "Well… I guess we can rest a bit."
[03:50] Shadowcaller: *she relaxes*
[03:51] Shadowcaller: "You know… this was a fantasy of mine."
[03:51] Murska: (my 3 liters of Pepsi for tonight are running dry at an alarming rate…)
[03:51] Shadowcaller: Ai, keeps Happy under check
[03:51] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[03:51] Happy: (GAH! I thought I was bad for drinking 3-5 cans of Coke a day)
[03:51] Murska: Aegnor holds her gently.
[03:51] Murska: (Well my father got 200 bottles of Pepsi for free
[03:51] Murska: (they got to go somewhere)
[03:52] Shadowcaller: (Eh, I don't drink any of that stuff.)
[03:52] Murska: (Oddly enough, I haven't had to go to the toilet once during the whole time. :P)
[03:52] Happy: Happy believes she could lose Ai in the woods if she tried, but she manages to control herself. Barely.
[03:53] Shadowcaller: (I bet you need soon enough…)
[03:53] Shadowcaller: (Cessi) "To do it outside."
[03:53] Happy: Finally bringing down a large deer.
[03:53] Shadowcaller: "…thats wierd right?"
[03:54] Murska: 'Why would it be?'
[03:54] Shadowcaller: Ai seems to keep a watch on Happy's desire
[03:54] Shadowcaller: He seems to see this as what happy would call "for the greater good"
[03:55] Happy: (sees what?)
[03:55] Shadowcaller: He manipulates her desire toward her friends instead
[03:55] Happy: (Ah)
[03:55] Shadowcaller: "Well, its not normal."
[03:55] Shadowcaller: (Cessi)
[03:56] Murska: 'It's not like any of us are normal.' *smile*
[03:57] Shadowcaller: "i'm normal…"
[03:57] Shadowcaller: "Or, there is no such thing as normal but…"
[03:57] Murska: 'No, you are special.'
[03:57] Shadowcaller: "Quite the prey… are we going to return to them now?"
[03:58] Happy: "Are they finished?"
[03:58] Shadowcaller: "They seems to be…"
[03:58] Happy: Happy slings the deer over her shoulders and returns.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: "I think they can manage without throwing themsleves at each other now" *smile*
[03:59] Shadowcaller: *temselves
[03:59] Shadowcaller: *themselves
[03:59] Shadowcaller: "Special?"
[03:59] Shadowcaller: (cessie)
[04:00] Murska: Aegnor slides his hand gently through her hair. 'Yeah.'
[04:01] Shadowcaller: You can see Ai and Happy coming walking toward you now
[04:02] Shadowcaller: She presses herself against you but suddenly realize that Happy and Ai are coming.
[04:02] Shadowcaller: "Damn, where are my clothes?"
[04:02] Shadowcaller: She looks around desperatly
[04:03] Murska: (does Aegnor see them anywhere)
[04:04] Shadowcaller: (you can feel her underpants under you, or are they yours?)
[04:04] Happy: (Wouldn't Ai know they aren't *quite* ready for them to come back?)
[04:04] Shadowcaller: (He only feel desire, now how dressed they are:P)
[04:04] Shadowcaller: *not
[04:05] Happy: (Yeah, like Cessie's desire not to be seen naked by them?)
[04:05] Shadowcaller: (not his fault that they are having a hour long pillow talk…)
[04:05] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, now he ntoices that.)
[04:05] Shadowcaller: *notices
[04:06] Shadowcaller: "Hm, we better wait here a minute or two."
[04:06] Shadowcaller: "Let them get dressed." *smile*
[04:07] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to have found her dress and pulls it over her head
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "Where are my underpants?"
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "Damn it…"
[04:07] Happy: Happy waits, the deer corpse on her shoulders, and it's blood on her face and hands.
[04:08] Shadowcaller: "Hm, he is laying on her underpants."
[04:08] Shadowcaller: "…maybe I should not have mentioned that."
[04:08] Happy: "I don't think you need to tell me details. I'm still a maiden, you know."
[04:09] Shadowcaller: "You are eh? Do that give you super-powers?" *smile*
[04:11] Shadowcaller: (Cessi) "Can you move a bit? I need to see if they are under you…"
[04:11] Happy: "There are always stories about virgins being sacrificed to the dark gods. But you'd know more about whether those stories are true than I would."
[04:12] Shadowcaller: "Dark Gods? There are no such things."
[04:12] Happy: "The Worm?"
[04:12] Shadowcaller: "Well, unless you go by the color, then Helios is a dark god."
[04:13] Shadowcaller: "its not a god."
[04:13] Shadowcaller: "You would be insulting every god, if you called it that."
[04:14] Happy: "But his followers believe he is, and they act on that belief. Their actions have consequences. Doesn't that give their belief a form of reality?"
[04:14] Shadowcaller: "The worm don't need belivers, its fuled by millions of dead life energy."
[04:14] Shadowcaller: "Its a disease."
[04:15] Shadowcaller: -energies
[04:15] Happy: "But if it had no believers, where would it get its fuel?"
[04:16] Shadowcaller: "Dead souls, it was created by the great war, millions of humans, elves and dwarves died of magic, but instead of going into the normal circle they formed into a magical perversion."
[04:17] Shadowcaller: "Its fuled by their hate, rage and despair."
[04:17] Happy: "Oh."
[04:17] Shadowcaller: "But it still needs to eat… a lot."
[04:17] Happy: "Would it starve if its followers were gone?"
[04:18] Shadowcaller: "They keep it under check actually, if its followers were gone it would soon search for another place to feed."
[04:18] Shadowcaller: "But since it preferes elves right now, it needs to go that way."
[04:19] Shadowcaller: "I belive that was Seos plan."
[04:19] Happy: "It will try and follow the elves to the higher plane?"
[04:20] Shadowcaller: "It will…"
[04:20] Shadowcaller: "Once its hungry again."
[04:21] Happy: "Then we have to find a way to destroy it here."
[04:22] Shadowcaller: "That will be.. extremly hard, its bascially, a anti-god."
[04:23] Shadowcaller: "Its immune to their magic, and very resistant to all other kinds of magic."
[04:23] Happy: "Is it immune to a sword?"
[04:24] Shadowcaller: "No one have tried that, but I don't think it would be very effective
[04:28] Murska: Yeah, Aegnor moves. :P
[04:28] Murska: He gets dressed himself, too.
[04:28] Shadowcaller: (Finally!)
[04:28] Murska: (I hate Glen. :P
[04:28] Murska: Stole my mage)
[04:29] Shadowcaller: *dresses self*
[04:30] Happy: Then eventually, Ai and Happy return with dead animal. Which Happy begins preparing as travel rations.
[04:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie starts to study the wand, still a bit embaressed
