Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 1018): Sun Mar 29 21:16:19 2009
[21:16] Happy: ok
[21:16] Shadowcaller: Oh, hi
[21:17] Murska: Multitasking to the max again… :p
[21:17] Murska: not anymore tho
[21:17] Murska: fix'd the horrible looming lack of space problem
[21:17] Shadowcaller: Something good always come from it
[21:18] Murska: I… closed everything which had something to do with my computer fixing, nine pages… and I still have four MSN chats, music, Structured Games, Easycleaner, Computer and Soldat. WHY IS SOLDAT OPEN? O_o
[21:19] Shadowcaller: >.>
[21:19] Shadowcaller: I rarely have games open
[21:19] Shadowcaller: I hate when northon starts cleaning thought
[21:20] Happy: three chats, firefox, excel, and email. so not too bad
[21:21] Murska: closed soldat but opened users to delete 200mb more old savefiles
[21:21] Murska: they were hiding in the wrong folder
[21:21] Shadowcaller: I mostly got microsoft works open
[21:22] Murska: Happy: What ya sheeting? :P
[21:22] Shadowcaller: I have so many ideas for the IF but none of them can't be used in thr tree:P
[21:22] Shadowcaller: *the
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Bills I would guess
[21:22] Murska: You're the one who got us stuck in a war. :P
[21:22] Shadowcaller: I regret it now >.>
[21:22] Happy: simply 2 and usb. i don't have any other games going.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Maybe we should get help from the outside oor something?
[21:23] Happy: that just means more npcs
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Eh, we can collect artifacts
[21:23] Murska: Heh. Leading an army of our own, as mercenaries, to the world under the tree. P
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Level up some
[21:23] Happy: what we need is to find the worms one secret weakness that allows the unlikely and overmatched heroes to save the day
[21:23] Murska: We should level up at some point, yah
[21:24] Murska: who ya calling unlikely? ;)
[21:24] Murska: Aegnor resents that remark.
[21:24] Shadowcaller: Happys suggestion seems good:P
[21:24] Murska: Anyway, we were at the camp and Cessie was studying the Fly spell
[21:24] Murska: (what's the spell like mobility wise, btw?)
[21:24] Happy: (you're the GM)
[21:24] Shadowcaller: (depends on who its cast on)
[21:24] Murska: (yup)
[21:25] Shadowcaller: *upon
[21:25] Murska: (well does it allow rapid turns and such and how fast can you move, if you cast it on, say, Cessie?)
[21:25] Shadowcaller: (Well, she is not that fast, so it would have less effect upon her.)
[21:26] Shadowcaller: (It would have more effect upon Happy (that should add her real name to the wiki)
[21:26] Murska: (gimme something to compare, then. Saying 'less effect' doesn't mean much. :P)
[21:26] Shadowcaller: (Lets say about as agile as a gigantic bird?)
[21:26] Shadowcaller: *flying bird
[21:27] Murska: (hm. So pretty fast, capable of dive-bombing better than a Stuka, incapable of sudden change of flight direction?)
[21:28] Shadowcaller: (The scouts are faster then us.)
[21:28] Shadowcaller: (But we are quite mobile, yes)
[21:29] Murska: Aegnor is chewing on a piece of dried meat while watching what the others are doing, mostly Cessie. Happy and Ai have just returned.
[21:30] Shadowcaller: *studies wand somehow regretfully*
[21:31] Murska: Cessie understands the basic principles of the spell pretty easily but it is taxing and difficult to use without some kind of a focus. She has two uses per day, and the wand loses one charge.
[21:32] Murska: (nobody fixed Aegnor's curse after all, right, btw?)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (wait, the wand lost one charge when I learned to cast it twice a day right?)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (Nope)
[21:32] Murska: (yup)
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (Okay, just making sure.)
[21:32] Happy: (Yeah, that was what we went to Caster's Tower for, and we just got a bit distracted with the war and stuff…)
[21:32] Murska: (Yup. :P)
[21:33] Murska: (Good, since I finally figured out exactly how it works)
[21:33] Murska: (fits the previous happenings, too)
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Okay, that took a bit less time then I thought."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "I can cast the spell, but only twice a day."
[21:34] Murska: (It took a while, yeah, but nobody did anything worthy of note. :P)
[21:34] Happy: Happy's been busy butchering her deer
[21:35] Murska: Aegnor hasn't said anything and has barely moved from his sitting position, back against the earth wall. He's chewed down some pieces of meat though.
[21:35] Murska: (and who controls Ai?)
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (I do I guess, unless you need him.)
[21:35] Murska: (I can't really get inside his character so I don't think I could RP him well. :P)
[21:36] Shadowcaller: (Okay, I do it then.)
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "So, whats the plan?"
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "I think we should try to focus on our goal right now." *glances at Aegnor*
[21:37] Murska: 'Hey, don't look at me. I'm fine with going to kill things now.'
[21:38] Happy: "If you can cast it twice a day, how do we all go together?"
[21:38] Murska: (the wand still has charges)
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "The wand has atleast one additional charge, so its shold be okay."
[21:40] Murska: Aegnor pushes himself up with the support of the stone wall and walks to the others. 'You done with the deer?'
[21:41] Happy: "Yes. It should be smoked longer, but I can finish that when we camp for the night."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "So, we are going to attack then?"
[21:43] Murska: 'Harass, I'd say. Not a real attack.'
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "If we can kill the druids, the undead should not be a problem."
[21:44] Murska: 'Yeah. And if we kill the undead but the druids escape, we've achieved nothing.'
[21:45] Murska: (By the way, if there's a, say, worm with the group, does the wormface guy see us?)
[21:45] Shadowcaller: (he dose)
[21:46] Shadowcaller: (its still cloudy by the way)
[21:46] Shadowcaller: (or is it?)
[21:46] Murska: (sure)
[21:46] Happy: "Can we get moving then?"
[21:46] Murska: 'Yeah, we better.'
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "An exelent idea."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: *excellent
[21:48] Happy: Happy is portioning the meat out into four parcels wrapped in skin and passes them out.
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "Thanks, I'm feeling better already."
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "Beats being naked…"
[21:49] Murska: 'Really?' *smile*
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "Yes, its going to be cold up there…"
[21:51] Murska: 'We better get going now.'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "Should I cast it now, or should we move a bit first?"
[21:51] Happy: "Cast it now. Let's go."
[21:52] Shadowcaller: *casts it upon the party, Ai too, if there is charges enough.*
[21:52] Murska: Yeah, but after the last spell from the wand, you sense there are no more.
[21:53] Shadowcaller: *flies a bit*
[21:53] Murska: Aegnor floats upwards and looks around. 'I like this spell.'
[21:54] Happy: Happy heads like an arrow, straight for the prey.
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "Hey, wait for us!" *tries to follow*
[21:54] Murska: Aegnor quickly goes after her, along with the rest of the group.
[21:55] Murska: Happy soon sees the group. They seem to be strugging on by foot, the group has fourty low-grade zombies and three druids.
[21:56] Murska: The druids are all walking on the main group's side, behind the zombies from where you are. Two of them seem to be talking with each other while the third is alone.
[21:56] Happy: Happy holds her sword out in front of her like a lance and dives for the lone druid.
[21:57] Murska: Aegnor and the others arrive to see this. 'Why are they walking…'
[21:57] Murska: The lone druid notices Happy barely in time and leaps out of the way, hitting his back to a stone.
[21:57] Murska: The zombies react fast and turn towards Happy while the two other druids start transforming.
[21:59] Murska: The first druid attempts to struggle to his feet. Aegnor draws his bow.
[21:59] Shadowcaller: *creastes a illusionary copy of herself*
[21:59] Shadowcaller: *creates
[22:00] Murska: The two druids seem to be transforming to a hawk and a large eagle, respectively.
[22:00] Shadowcaller: *hides herself with illusions*
[22:00] Happy: Happy lands and charges her prey.
[22:00] Murska: The first druid has just gotten to his feet and somehow parries Happy's first blow with a sword he managed to procure out of the folds of his clothing, but his sword flies from his hand.
[22:01] Murska: The two others have finished transforming. Aegnor's first arrow scratches the eagle who attacks him. The hawk turns and flies towards the main group.
[22:02] Shadowcaller: The illusionary copy flies in one direction, Cessie follows at a distance
[22:02] Shadowcaller: The copy dives against the groud
[22:02] Shadowcaller: *ground
[22:03] Happy: Happy keeps attacking her prey
[22:03] Murska: The zombies take a few swings at it but don't hit. They're mostly going towards Happy.
[22:03] Murska: Happy beheads the first druid with a single blow. Aegnor's second arrow misses the hawk and he has to drop the bow to fight off the eagle.
[22:04] Shadowcaller: *fireballs the enemy that tries to attack the copy, if any.*
[22:04] Happy: Happy whirls and aims a mass turn undead at the zombies that are attacking her.
[22:05] Murska: Twelve of them fall down, unmoving, and some more seem weakened, but the rest keep coming
[22:06] Shadowcaller: (how many fireballs do I have anyway?)
[22:06] Murska: (hm. Let's say two left for now, since you already cast two 'fly's)
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (I'm a wizard, not a sorcess >.>)
[22:07] Murska: (I have no idea what you mean by that, anyway. :P)
[22:07] Happy: Happy flies after the nearest flying one.
[22:08] Shadowcaller: (D&D Murska, D&D…)
[22:08] Murska: Well, the eagle is attacking Aegnor while the hawk is flying towards the main group as fast as it can
[22:08] Murska: (Yeah, I don't know D&D rules since I never got to play it)
[22:09] Happy: Happy goes after the hawk
[22:09] Shadowcaller: (Well the sorcess can cast a number of spells on every level.)
[22:10] Shadowcaller: (The wizard on the other hand have a number of each spell.)
[22:10] Murska: ('kay)
[22:10] Murska: (Well, you have a certain amount of magical energy and no focus for flies but the rock works as a focus for the fireballs and light tricks. :P)
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (I don't any more offensive spells do I?)
[22:11] Murska: (I don't remember what the wand had, anyway. :P)
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (Anyone tries to attack the cloe yet?)
[22:11] Murska: (Some zombies, not many though.)
[22:11] Shadowcaller: (It had hold person)
[22:11] Shadowcaller: It flies away from them
[22:12] Murska: They don't seem to be controlled much. They just turn and shamble towards Happy.
[22:12] Happy: Happy's still chasing the hawk
[22:12] Happy: in the air
[22:12] Shadowcaller: (And a summon spell of some kind)
[22:12] Murska: the hawk is faster than Happy. She sees the main group…
[22:13] Murska: Aegnor finally manages to strike a real blow at the eagle. He's covered in scratches but nothing serious. The eagle turns and flies away.
[22:13] Happy: (oooh, *that* main group. I thought you meant the main group of Aegnor, Cessie, and Ai….)
[22:13] Murska: (:P yeah, it isn't suicidal. :P)
[22:14] Shadowcaller: (Hm, and here I thought they always attacked the wizard first…)
[22:14] Murska: The army seems to have just reached the edge of the swamp.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: (The big army? o.O)
[22:14] Murska: (The one druid who actually attacked was pretty much distracting the bowman. :P)
[22:14] Murska: (yeah)
[22:14] Happy: how many druids are in the main group?
[22:15] Murska: (how many did we have left again?)
[22:15] Shadowcaller: (holy crap)
[22:15] Shadowcaller: (17 left..)
[22:15] Shadowcaller: (16 now)
[22:16] Murska: (well, two of those are flying towards the main camp, Happy is between them. There are nine in the other groups but they're already flying to the main group and in the main group the remaining five are turning into giant eagles.)
[22:16] Happy: (And Happy got a rush of extra stamina/strength/energy from the kill, right?)
[22:16] Murska: (yeah)
[22:16] Happy: (and the main group has the bodywalker and the head druid guy?)
[22:17] Murska: (yup, along with the zombies, of which there are around 1500 or so)
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (happy must be pretty rushed right now)
[22:18] Murska: A large eagle swoops downwards at Happy from behind.
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (all that energy from kills…)
[22:18] Happy: Well, she knows it's there….
[22:18] Murska: Aegnor is working on hacking off the heads of some zombies who are shambling around his dropped bow
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Ignore the zombies Aegnor, we need to focus on the druids."
[22:19] Happy: So she swings her sword in an wide arc as it arrives, calling on the rule of cool.
[22:19] Murska: 'We can't catch them anymore. And I want my bow back.'
[22:20] Murska: The eagle has to stop it's attack and barely manages to avoid getting it's intestines spilled. It flies above Happy instead, trying to get to the main group.
[22:20] Murska: The five druids in the main group are approaching.
[22:20] Murska: The hawk guy is turning into something odd.
[22:20] Shadowcaller: odd?
[22:21] Murska: Well he seems to be turning partially invisible
[22:21] Murska: The five eagles are joined by three more from another group.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: (where are Ai, Aengor and me?)
[22:21] Murska: We're still at the place where we attacked the group
[22:22] Murska: Aegnor finally retrieves his bow and sets off after Happy. 'Let's go.'
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Yeah…"
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "The perversion is near…" (Ai)
[22:24] Happy: Happy looks back and checks on her companions.
[22:24] Murska: They are approaching.
[22:24] Murska: Aegnor is the first to arrive to her, and sees the nine druids attacking them as eagles. 'Uh, I think it's time to get the hell out.'
[22:24] Shadowcaller: Note: You can't see Cessie, but she is quite near her copy so…
[22:24] Happy: She's more in control now that she's killed. So she nods to Aegnor, and follows him.
[22:25] Murska: Aegnor motions for Ai and Cessie to turn around, and flies away as fast as he can. Suddenly he seems to be hit by something and almost falls.
[22:25] Shadowcaller: They follow him
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (didn't read the last part:P)
[22:26] Murska: Aegnor struggles and stays in the air. Happy feels like a fist made of wind punches her with a strong force.
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "No! Aegnor! *casts fireball near happy (but not on her)
[22:28] Murska: The fireball flies through the air until it seems to hit something. It diminishes in midair and disappears.
[22:28] Murska: The eagles are getting closer.
[22:28] Murska: 'I'm okay, but we need to get out of here!'
[22:28] Shadowcaller: *sends the copy forwarrd a bit*
[22:28] Shadowcaller: *backward*
[22:28] Murska: (Hm. What happens to the copy if something invisible hits it anyway?)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (see, the illusion convinces the seer its real, so whoever hits it would belive he/she really would have hitted it, but its still unmoved and it really passes right throught.)
[22:30] Murska: (well what does it look like to Cessie?)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (like herself, but she can see its a illusion.)
[22:30] Murska: (no, the strike)
[22:30] Happy: Happy's extra strength helps her recover from the invisible attack. She flies towards the Cessie copy to protect it, not realizing it's not the real one.
[22:31] Murska: Aegnor realizes that they are too slow to escape. He turns around and prepares to fire an arrow at the eagles.
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (Well, to her the image just blurs for a second.)
[22:32] Murska: Happy receives another blow.
[22:33] Shadowcaller: *uses summon ability on wand* (I hoped to save this…)
[22:33] Murska: Aegnor's first arrow suddenly turns off-course in midair.
[22:33] Murska: (Uh oh… No idea what it should do. :P)
[22:33] Happy: Happy tries to attack the invisible thing.
[22:33] Happy: (I was going to make it summon an earth elemental…)
[22:33] Shadowcaller: (Air elemental now?)
[22:33] Murska: (well in midair that's gonna be pretty much a falling boulder. :P)
[22:33] Murska: (sure)
[22:34] Murska: Happy's sword meets nothing but she notices the air distort around it.
[22:34] Shadowcaller: (I think the spell adjusts to its envoirment.)
[22:34] Happy: Does Happy's prey sense help her at all?
[22:34] Shadowcaller: *immediate surroundings
[22:35] Murska: Happy senses the eagles who are pretty close now, but she gets a really confusing feeling from the air near her.
[22:36] Happy: "Kuori, give me eyes to see my prey," she mutters, as she continues fighting the air.
[22:36] Murska: The summoning spell creates a flash of light and then Cessie sees a sort of a swirling (hard-to-describe) coalescence of air.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: (how is the copy doing?)
[22:36] Murska: Happy receives more blows, they aren't as strong as the first one. The copy doesn't seem to be affected much, until an eagle swoops at it and strikes it.
[22:37] Shadowcaller: I order the air elemental to protect Happy
[22:37] Murska: Aegnor's second arrow hits one of the eagles.
[22:37] Shadowcaller: Casts fireball on eagle
[22:37] Shadowcaller: When it strikes the copy
[22:37] Murska: The elemental silently flies towards Happy and you see a strange sight of air battling against itself.
[22:37] Murska: The eagle striking the copy bursts aflame and smolders downwards, smashing to the ground.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: The copy retreats back
[22:38] Murska: Aegnor places his bow on his back in time and draws his sword as some of the eagles fly towards him. 'We should get out of here. I see four more approaching.'
[22:39] Happy: Happy flies to Cessie Copy. "Are you hurt?"
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "I'm not here." the copy says
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "The real me is somewhere around."
[22:40] Murska: Happy should concentrate on the five eagles attacking her.
[22:41] Happy: Happy turns and readies herself for attack.
[22:41] Murska: A green bolt of light flies past Cessie Copy.
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "I will cover you." The copy place it self to take the eagles attackes
[22:42] Shadowcaller: *attacks
[22:42] Murska: Two of the eagles fly at the copy, slashing at it while passing it. Aegnor shouts as he parries another blow. 'We need to get out!'
[22:42] Shadowcaller: *casts fire ball on the eagles attacking the copy*
[22:42] Murska: Happy feels the confusing feeling disappear.
[22:42] Murska: Cessie's air elemental seems to have won.
[22:43] Murska: The fireball strikes one of the eagles which quickly flies downwards and starts changing to a druid before it even reaches the ground
[22:43] Shadowcaller: The copy tires to escape from the attacking eagles
[22:44] Murska: Aegnor flies under one of the eagles but doesn't get to use his chance to attack since another one swoops at him from the front.
[22:44] Happy: Happy retreats towards Aegnor, but ready to fight if attack
[22:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie keeps herslef near Aegnor, following him whereever he goes
[22:44] Murska: One of the eagles scratches Happy deeply while flying past her. She parries another.
[22:45] Murska: The four eagles flying from the camp suddenly scatter. One of them is sent uncontrollably flying downwards.
[22:45] Murska: It smashes into a rock wall.
[22:45] Shadowcaller: *herself
[22:45] Murska: Two more green bolts fly from under the fight, striking the air elemental which diminishes.
[22:46] Happy: Has Happy reached Aegnor yet?
[22:47] Murska: Happy has a hard time staying alive while being attacked by three eagles. One of the eagles is confused, scratching Cessie Copy. Aegnor is fighting against three more. They're pretty close but not really capable of getting closer to each other.
[22:47] Murska: There's a deep cut on Aegnor's arm and he hasn't managed to hit any of the eagles.
[22:47] Shadowcaller: (the copy is trying to flee)
[22:47] Murska: (yeah, the eagle is just swooping at it again and again. It'll notice it's an illusion soon.)
[22:48] Happy: Happy heals herself enough to stay alive, and keeps attacking the eagle.
[22:48] Shadowcaller: Cessie casts hold person on anything that tries to attack Aegnor
[22:48] Murska: The three reinforcement eagles withdraw from the air elemental which is dissipated by a barrage of magic from the ground.
[22:48] Murska: Happy can't, without being seriously hurt herself, get a hit on the eagles.
[22:49] Murska: Cessie's spell strikes one of the eagles which falls to the ground. Aegnor quickly strikes another of them, his sword pried out of his hands. The wounded eagle also retreats to the ground, which is being filled by zombies of various kinds by now.
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "We need to retreat! Where is Happy?"
[22:50] Murska: The reinforcement eagles see the situation and move towards the group.
[22:50] Murska: 'In the middle of all those eagles!' Aegnor flies steadily backwards, easily fending off the last eagle.
[22:51] Murska: Three green bolts fly from the ground and one strikes Aegnor's wounded arm. 'Arg!'
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "No!"
[22:51] Murska: One of the bolts flies dangerously close to the real Cessie.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Cessi casts invisibility on Aegnor
[22:52] Shadowcaller: While retreating
[22:52] Murska: Aegnor flies downwards and away from the last eagle. Happy is going to die if she doesn't manage to do something pretty soon.
[22:52] Happy: (um, like what? nothing I try is working… >.>)
[22:52] Shadowcaller: (remember that she heals once she kills something.)
[22:53] Murska: (Well thus far you've tried hitting them. Running away would at this point be a better possibility, I'd assume. :P)
[22:53] Happy: (i said i was retreqating about four or five times)
[22:53] Murska: (you are, but you can't move fast backwards and you can't turn your back)
[22:53] Happy: (so what then?)
[22:53] Murska: (Luckily the eagles are obstructing each other and the bolts from the ground.)
[22:53] Happy: (i can't run and I can't fight)
[22:54] Murska: (we'll help, I'd assume. And SC should make Ai do something)
[22:54] Happy: (and why can't I move as fast backwards as I can forwards? It isn't as if I'm going to trip over obstacles?)
[22:54] Murska: (Well you can't move faster than the eagles to any direction.)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: (Go for the kill! Kill one of them and you will be healed.)
[22:55] Happy: (he won't let me kill them!)
[22:55] Murska: Aegnor, now invisible, moves towards the eagles attacking Happy.
[22:55] Murska: (:P)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: Cessie follows Aegnor as usual
[22:56] Shadowcaller: The copy is far away now
[22:56] Happy: (Well it's a little frustrating, since I'm doing all the same things Aegnor is, but somehow am trapped. And how are the eagles trapping me anyway? They can't hover.)
[22:56] Murska: (You're not trapped, you're moving backwards but there are six eagles attacking you so you can basically only parry blows.)
[22:56] Shadowcaller: (They are hover eagles!)
[22:57] Murska: (they fly towards you at high speed, trying to rip out parts of you, then fly away again, turn and repeat.)
[22:57] Murska: (You could maybe stab one when it's flying at you but that'd mean you're hit by another.)
[22:58] Shadowcaller: "Ai, can you see thir greatest fear?"
[22:58] Shadowcaller: *their
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (What is their greatest gear?)
[22:58] Shadowcaller: *fear >.>
[22:58] Murska: The battle is slowly moving closer to the ground. Aegnor invisibly strikes an eagle flying away from Happy and wounds it. The wounded eagles seem to try retreating to the ground right away.
[22:58] Happy: (Metal Gear Solid?
[22:59] Murska: (I have no idea. :P)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (Lets just say something)
[22:59] Murska: 'Cast something at those, we need to give her some space!'
[22:59] Shadowcaller: Ai tells that *something* is their greatest fear
[22:59] Murska: (:P)
[22:59] Happy: (the worm)#
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (I'm out of spells!)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: Use illusion to look like their greatest fear
[23:00] Murska: (there's still at least one charge of hold person left.)
[23:00] Happy: Happy dives for the ground, even though it's covered with zombies.
[23:00] Happy: Lands amongst them and blasts another area effect turn undead. Then looks for a wall or something to put her back against
[23:00] Murska: (Uh, looking like the worm in midair is gonna be rather obvious. :P)
[23:01] Happy: (an illusory fire elemental?)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (The worm is a mind raping horror, its not effected by air, it don't exactly look like a worm.)
[23:01] Happy: (maybe Aegnor should call on nature magic?)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (More like… well something much, much worse.)
[23:02] Murska: Zombies from around Happy fall, but there are so many more. The eagles (well, still they'd think it's on their side)
[23:02] Murska: the eagles scatter and return to ground.
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (you don't need to describe it.)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Lets go with fire elemental then…)
[23:02] Murska: Aegnor quickly flies towards the ground. /Save her!/
[23:03] Murska: The fire elemental is quickly under bombardment by dozens of spells.
[23:03] Murska: (I assume this is where nature saves Happy just in time.)
[23:03] Happy: (does killing zombies heal her?)
[23:04] Murska: (Not much. Killing zombies doesn't affect her much at all, just a tiny bit of energy.)
[23:04] Shadowcaller: Flies off, tries to dodge all attacks
[23:04] Happy: (How about roots emerge from the broken ground around Happy and start ripping zombies to shreds?)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: Then, if its too many, I go back to being invisible
[23:05] Murska: (I'd say the ground around her rips even more, and trees sprout from it around her.)
[23:06] Murska: Anyway, the nature shields her while Aegnor swoops down. 'Fly away, now!'
[23:06] Happy: Happy flies.
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (Well, this can't be good.)
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (How its going for me?)
[23:06] Murska: Cessie manages to avoid being hit mostly by the elemental not being Cessie-shaped.
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Its rather large actually
[23:07] Murska: Happy, still visible, gets a barrage of bolts to her. Aegnor blocks one and one strikes her leg, burning it pretty badly, but they get away.
[23:08] Murska: (Let's assume Ai was invisible as usual and stayed pretty far from the battle.)
[23:08] Shadowcaller: (I was actually about to say that once the battle started.)
[23:09] Shadowcaller: Anyway, once I get away far enough I go invisible
[23:10] Murska: Aegnor flies alongside Happy, away from the army, towards the border of F1 and F2
[23:10] Murska: They feel the spell giving out soon enough and land near a small stream.
[23:10] Shadowcaller: I have become separated I guess?
[23:11] Murska: (you can follow us, Happy is visible.)
[23:11] Shadowcaller: (well, I was going the opposite direction of you.)
[23:11] Murska: (You were? Well, then I'd guess yeah. :P)
[23:12] Shadowcaller: (I tried to lure them away, remember?)
[23:12] Murska: (well there's no enemies in the air anymore.)
[23:13] Happy: Happy lands, collapses to the ground. "Where's Cessie?!"
[23:13] Shadowcaller: Where do I land?
[23:14] Murska: You land near the edge of the broken land in the border of D2 and E2
[23:14] Shadowcaller: (we can feel when the enchantment is about to end.)
[23:14] Murska: 'I don't know… She turned invisible.'
[23:15] Happy: "No.. no no no."
[23:15] Murska: (Where's Ai?)
[23:15] Shadowcaller: The copy is still around here somewhere…
[23:15] Shadowcaller: (He followed you, the largest group)
[23:15] Happy: "There she is!" Runs (limps) to the copy
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "No, I'm not her, she is else where."
[23:16] Murska: Aegnor passes Happy but falls to his knees once he hears this. 'No…'
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "She is alive Aegnor, otherwise I would have faded away."
[23:16] Happy: "Where is she?!
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "I don't know."
[23:16] Murska: 'She wasn't captured… tell me she wasn't!'
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "I have only been in existance for a few minutes…"
[23:17] Murska: (Aegnor turns visible soon, as does Cessie.)
[23:17] Shadowcaller: *existance
[23:17] Murska: (before the flight spell ends, that is)
[23:17] Shadowcaller: *hides herself with shadows then*
[23:18] Shadowcaller: Tries to walk away as far as she can from the army
[23:18] Happy: "Ai, how can we find her?"
[23:18] Murska: Cessie moves through the terrain pretty fast, since it's not that difficult this far. She reaches a small forest soon.
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "I don't know, I can't feel her from this distance I'm afraid."
[23:19] Shadowcaller: The copy smiles, "i'm sure she is okay."
[23:19] Happy: Happy crawls over to Aegnor. "How badly are you wounded?"
[23:19] Murska: Aegnor stares at the ground. 'It was a trap… they knew we were coming.'
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "We didn't die, they failed."
[23:20] Murska: Happy sees Aegnor is covered in scratches, some deeper than others. There is a large gash on his arm but it doesn't bleed, since the arm is badly burnt.
[23:20] Murska: Aegnor doesn't reply.
[23:22] Shadowcaller: Ai seems to be effected by Aegnors feelings
[23:22] Happy: Happy grabs him and shakes him. "We have to find her. Pull yourself together."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: The copy seems to be a bit confused about all this
[23:22] Murska: After a short while, he stands up. 'Okay, I'm going to find Cessie.'
[23:22] Happy: "No, we're going together."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: *reaches forest*
[23:23] Happy: (how many druids were killed in that battle?)
[23:23] Murska: (Three, and more wounded.)
[23:23] Murska: (and one beheaded, right. Four.)
[23:23] Shadowcaller: Looks around
[23:24] Happy: (so 13 left?)
[23:24] Murska: Cessie notices nothing special about the forest. It's not very large and the trees aren't very tall.
[23:24] Murska: (I think.)
[23:25] Happy: Happy heals herself and Aegnor the best she can. "Talk to the dryads. Maybe they can find her."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Goes deeper into it, looking for anything at all
[23:25] Happy: (at least Cessie won't starve for a while)
[23:26] Murska: Aegnor manages to stop until Happy's healed him a bit and calms down a bit. His eyes have darkened somewhat, if anyone happens to notice.
[23:26] Murska: (Someone play the voices in Aegnor's mind?)
[23:26] Shadowcaller: Ai looks depressed
[23:26] Happy: (the tree? or the dryads? Or obth?)
[23:26] Murska: Cessie finds a small body of water in the middle of it all.
[23:27] Murska: (Well, I don't know how exactly the connection works anymore. The dryads said something about talking to the tree which talks to them.)
[23:27] Happy: Happy steps in front of Aegnor, takes him by the shoulder, and looks him in the eyes. "Don't rage. Don't. It won't help her."
[23:27] Happy: (I'll do it then.)
[23:27] Murska: 'I know.' Aegnor says with a cold voice. 'I'll find her.'
[23:28] Murska: /Help me, please!/
[23:28] Murska: (he blanks while staring at Happy.
[23:28] Murska: (BTW, why are you orange today, Happy?)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: (she was convinced to change it)
[23:28] Murska: (I liked blue more. :P)
[23:28] Happy: (I was pelted by oranges in the big chat last night.)
[23:30] Happy: (okay, that's two orange complaints. Back to blue)
[23:30] Happy: /Help you?/
[23:31] Shadowcaller: (so thats why it was a forest…)
[23:31] Murska: /Where's Cessie?/
[23:33] Happy: /Cessie is human of fire and fear?/
[23:34] Murska: /She's the wizard traveling with us./ Aegnor's thoughts are coherent but the underlying feeling is very much not so.
[23:36] Happy: /Fire human is in trees./
[23:36] Murska: Aegnor is getting impatient. /Can you be any more specific?/
[23:38] Happy: Aegnor has had the voices in his head long enough now that he's starting to make sense of some of them. The voices of trees and water, specifically.
[23:40] Happy: she is looking in the water. she is alone, but my sisters are swimming towards her to keep her safe for you.
[23:41] Shadowcaller: (Am I thirsty?)
[23:41] Murska: /She wasn't captured then…/ Aegnor breathes a sigh of relief.
[23:41] Murska: (Your call. :P)
[23:41] Happy: (is she wounded?)
[23:41] Shadowcaller: *drinks some water*
[23:42] Murska: (Cessie isn't wounded, I think.)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (Yay!)
[23:43] Murska: Cessie feels refreshed. (So, water nymphs gonna find her now and I got to play those? :P)
[23:43] Happy: No unliving things near her. A nymph pops up out of the water. "Fire human! Are you unharmed? The music maker fears for you."
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Ahh!"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Where… where di you come from?"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: *did
[23:44] Murska: /*Aegnor just transmits a strong feeling of relief*/
[23:46] Happy: Near the main party, a face appears in a nearby flowering shrub, and a tiny and quite fragile looking flower pixie appears. "We will help you, Aegnor of Song. We helped protect your hunter human and we will protect your fire human as well."
[23:47] Happy: Water: "I came from the water. Are you unharmed?"
[23:48] Murska: 'Thank you all… so much.' Aegnor seems to shrink slightly and he falls to his knees again. 'Is she okay?'
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "I am, you can just appear in water like that?"
[23:49] Happy: "We are in every lake and pool and sea and river and stream and inside the tree and in the sky and on the earth."
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "Um okay."
[23:50] Happy: The pixie suddenly flies in a little loop-de-loop and explodes in a shower of petals before reforming and kissing Aegnor on the forehead. "She is unharmed."
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "So, what are you doing here?"
[23:52] Murska: (I'd totally say 'thank god' but it doesn't work for Aegnor. :P)
[23:53] Murska: 'I guess I wouldn't be in much shape to go get her back from the druids anyway…' Aegnor lets the exhaustion on his face show.
[23:55] Murska: (I don't think either of us is fully healed either, since Happy's power isn't THAT strong yet.)
[23:55] Happy: (No, we're both pretty feeble, I imagine)
[23:57] Happy: "The music maker fears for you. There is something angry inside him trying to come out, but he controls it for now. He is afraid. We don't want him to be afraid. We will protect you."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Where is he?"
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Could you please tell me?"
[23:59] Happy: "He is near Ellie's stream."
[00:00] Happy: The pixie takes hold of one of Aegnor's fingers and flies as if to pull him in a certain direction.
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "I don't know where that is…"
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "Is he hurt… are they hurt?"
[00:01] Murska: Aegnor doesn't get up but lets it move his hand.
[00:03] Happy: "Come with me."
[00:03] Murska: (at me?)
[00:04] Happy: (yes)
[00:04] Murska: 'I guess.' Aegnor gets on his feet.
[00:06] Happy: The pixie drags him to a place where the stream has formed a small still pool. "Look."
[00:06] Murska: Aegnor stumbles after it and looks into the water.
[00:06] Happy: (sww updated)
[00:06] Murska: (am I dead already? :P)
[00:06] Happy: He sees an image of Cessie in the water.
[00:07] Murska: 'Is this real?' Aegnor falls to his knees (AGAIN) next to the pool.
[00:08] Happy: "Look" the nymph says to Cessie, and she'll see Aegnor's face in the lake
[00:08] Happy: Cessie hears Aegnor's voice saying 'Is this real?'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: She falls down on her knees in the water "Where is he? Is that real?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Hello?" Cessie tries
[00:09] Happy: And Aegnor can hear Cessie's voice as well.
[00:09] Murska: 'Cessie… you're all right.' Aegnor smiles.
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "Of course I am, you don't think those druids would be the end of me did you?" *she looks extremly relived*
[00:11] Happy: (and now that you are talking to each other, i'm going to go grab some food…)
[00:11] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "Where are you? Where is Happy? Are you both okay?"
[00:12] Murska: 'We'll be fine… We're somewhere east of the army.'
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure where I am, I was busy dodging attacks…"
[00:14] Murska: 'How do we get to each other then…'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "I will find a way… I can cast fly soon enough and then I can find you that way." *smiles*
[00:16] Shadowcaller: "Don't worry, I will be back soon enough, I promise that Aegnor."
[00:17] Murska: 'You better keep that promise.' *smile*
[00:17] Murska: 'Maybe we should meet at the tower?'
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "If you wish, I'm not too sure where that is from here thought."
[00:18] Murska: 'Well if you cast fly, you should be able to see the swamp and get to the tower that way, right?'
[00:18] Murska: 'Just be careful, please.'
[00:19] Happy: Happy checks on Ai. "Are you hurt?"
[00:19] Shadowcaller: "I'm always careful Aegnor, and now I'm going to be even more, I will keep myseld alive for you." *smile*
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "I don't have many wounds, and they are healing by themselves, you don't need to be concerned for me."
[00:20] Shadowcaller: (Ai)
[00:20] Happy: The water nymph speaks to Cessie, and Aegnor can hear her as well. "We can guide you to the small void."
[00:21] Happy: Happy: "I could have gotten them killed…"
[00:22] Shadowcaller: brb
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "The small void?"
[00:25] Murska: 'The tower.'
[00:26] Shadowcaller: "Right, I remember…"
[00:27] Shadowcaller: (how dark is it?)
[00:27] Murska: (It's evening but not very dark yet.)
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "How long will it take for you to get there?"
[00:28] Happy: Happy throws her arms around Ai and begins sobbing into his shoulder. "I could have gotten them both killed."
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "There, there… don't cry… " his voice is very soothing, like a lullaby
[00:31] Happy: (she's wanting parental type comfort, btw) "You told me I needed to control my rage. I should have listened."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: (and that is?)
[00:33] Murska: 'I'm not sure where exactly we are…'
[00:35] Happy: (pretty much what he's doing. Console and advise.)
[00:35] Happy: "If anything happens to Cessie, it'll be my fault."
[00:36] Shadowcaller: "Emotions are hard to control, you could not have known that would happend."
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "You are at Ellies stream apperenly."
[00:38] Murska: 'Well, that doesn't tell me much.'
[00:38] Shadowcaller: (Ai) "You should not blame yourself for something someone else have done, the druids are to blame here."
[00:39] Shadowcaller: (Cessie) "It didn't to me either, I guess you are close to the water of another Nymph."
[00:39] Murska: ( brb)
[00:41] Happy: Happy: "They come first. Before Kuori. Before the Tree. I'll get them off of it if I have to."
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "Of course they do, I can see them in your mind all the time, there is no doubt about that."
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "But you must look after yourself too, you can't blame yourself for something others are trying to do."
[00:45] Happy: Happy: "What should I do?"
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "Ask them, not me."
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "I'm sure they don't blame you either."
[00:48] Murska: (back)
[00:49] Murska: (Aegnor tries not to show it to Cessie, but he's pretty exhausted.)
[00:50] Shadowcaller: "I think you need to rest before you go anywhere Aegnor."
[00:51] Murska: 'I'll manage… You aren't wounded, are you?'
[00:51] Happy: Happy notices that Aegnor is talking to the stream and walks over.
[00:51] Happy: "I told you she was unharmed," the pixie says a little peevishly
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "Of course not, I'm okay."
[00:52] Shadowcaller: "How about you…there is nothing wrong is there?" She raises her eyebrown
[00:52] Happy: Happy hears Cessie's voice and drops to her knees next to Aegnor. "Cessie! Is this another illusion?!"
[00:53] Murska: 'You know me, it takes more than a few armies to stop me.'
[00:54] Shadowcaller: "Happy?! Is she there? I could hear her."
[00:54] Happy: "I'm right here. Cessie, I'm so sorry."
[00:55] Murska: Aegnor makes room for her.
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "There is nothing to be sorry about Happy, I'm just glad to see that you are okay."
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "I'm very glad to see that you are both okay, we could all have died there…"
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "Ai, is he okay too?"
[01:00] Happy: "Yes, he's fine."
[01:02] Shadowcaller: "Are you sure youre both okay? You look a bit.. worn."
[01:02] Happy: "Just a little wounded. Nothing serious."
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "Good… good… you take care of Aegnor for me right?"
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "Don't let him do anything dangerous."
[01:04] Murska: 'Hey! Shouldn't that be the other way around.'
[01:04] Happy: Happy smiles. "I'll keep him safe."
[01:06] Shadowcaller: "Perfect, now I just have to wait until I can fly again."
[01:06] Shadowcaller: "What are you going to do?"
[01:07] Murska: 'We haven't decided that much yet.'
[01:08] Shadowcaller: "Well, don't go near the army again, promise me that Aegnor."
[01:08] Happy: "I promise," Happy says.
[01:08] Murska: 'Let's wish it doesn't try getting in my way. I won't go looking, I promise.'
[01:08] Happy: "I know where they are. They can't sneak up on us."
[01:09] Shadowcaller: *smiles* "you keep up my good mood at least."
[01:10] Happy: "Be careful. Stay invisible, okay? They might be able to sneak up on you."
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "Don't worry, I won't let them get me."
[01:10] Murska: 'If you manage to get killed, I'll never forgive you.'
[01:11] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, I won't get killed, trust me, I'm the sneakies of us right?"
[01:13] Murska: 'You'd better not, or I'll drag you back.'
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "I think you would Aegnor, I think you would."
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "So… maybe we should try to meet for real?"
[01:16] Murska: 'Yeah, we better get to it.' Aegnor would be reluctant to leave but he doesn't want Cessie to notice how tired he is.
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… whatever happends, don't blame yourself okay?"
[01:19] Murska: 'Nothing bad will happen. I look forward to seeing you at the tower.' Aegnor smiles at her.
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "I love you Aegnor, please be safe."
[01:21] Murska: 'I will.' With that, Aegnor stands up. 'You too.' Then he steps away from the water.
[01:22] Shadowcaller: Cessie dose so too
[01:23] Murska: Aegnor walks a few steps and then sits down. 'Do you think we could rest here for a bit…'
[01:24] Happy: Happy walks over and hugs Aegnor.
[01:25] Murska: Aegnor looks slightly suprised at this.
[01:26] Happy: "I'm sorry. It's my fault."
[01:27] Murska: 'No, it isn't.'
[01:27] Murska: 'We were going to attack them anyway.'
[01:27] Happy: "I should have stayed with you and Cessie instead of going on ahead."
[01:28] Murska: 'It wouldn't have helped. They were planning a trap, you know it.'
[01:29] Happy: "I'll build a fire. Hey, at least Cessie won't be hungry, right?" *weak smile*
[01:30] Happy: Happy starts to gather wood.
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "So, what are you going to do?" *asks Nymph*
[01:32] Happy: "We're going to rest here for a little while, and then go and find Cessie."
[01:32] Murska: 'Yeah. We'll go to the tower and meet her there.'
[01:42] Shadowcaller: (hm, end there?)
[01:42] Murska: (If you guys want to. I can go on.)
[01:42] Shadowcaller: (I can't narrate the next one, since I'm not with you.)
[01:43] Shadowcaller: (well say something then:P)
[01:43] Murska: (I said something last. :P)
[01:43] Happy: (What's Cessie doing now?)
[01:43] Murska: (happy's turn, in both conversations. :P)
[01:43] Happy: Happy builds the campfire
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (she talked to the nymph remember?)
[01:44] Murska: Aegnor lies down on the ground. (But doesn't writhe in pain nor change into Bruce Wayne)
[01:45] Murska: He breathes deeply and trances soon.
[01:45] Happy: Happy stands watch, also exhausted.
[01:45] Shadowcaller: (I *asked* a nymph something.)
[01:45] Happy: oh, I thought the nymph asked Happy….
[01:45] Happy: i wondered why you were speaking for the nuymph
[01:46] Happy: "We'll stay with you and protect you and guide you and keep you safe for our Aegnor music maker singer friend."
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "Okay, I think I can make it on my own once I get my spells back."
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "You warn me if something comes while I sleep right?"
[01:48] Happy: "Nothing will come. We will keep you safe. We promised."
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "Well, I think I will sleep then, know any good places?"
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "For a camp, to sleep in."
[01:50] Happy: "Over here," a dryad calls to her from the trees.
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "You won't do anything to my hair again will you?"
[01:50] Shadowcaller: She sits down by the tree
[01:53] Happy: Before she gets there, the trees shake, and leaves fall into a soft heap. Once Cessie sits down, shrubbery begins sprouting from the ground around her until she's completely hidden in a ring of greenery. A few tiny pixies fly out of the bushes. "Lie down, fire human. Take your rest."
[01:54] Shadowcaller: "…how did you do that?" *she leans again the tree*
[01:54] Happy: "How do you make fire?"
[01:55] Murska: Aegnor wakes up pretty soon and gets on his feet. He looks marginally less tired. 'You need to rest aswell.'
[01:56] Shadowcaller: "Well, the energy is called from elsewhere, then the energy can become any type of energy at all."
[01:56] Murska: ( brb food)
[01:57] Happy: Happy is too tired to argue, and falls asleep at once.
[01:57] Happy: "Oh. That's not how we do it."
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to go technical, but once the enr- its not?"
[02:00] Happy: "We sang the bushes here." One pixie says. "No, the bushes came because we wanted them here," another says. "The water told them." "No, the dryad told them." "They came because they like the singing one and wanted to keep his fire human safe." "Yes, that's it." "Oh yeah."
[02:00] Shadowcaller: "But… that don't explain anything at all."
[02:01] Happy: Aegnor will have a hard time staying awake, as the dryads are singing to him in his head. /Sleep rest, we will protect you keep you safe/
[02:01] Murska: Aegnor walks to a nearby tree and leans on it. /I can't sleep…/
[02:01] Shadowcaller: "You don't know what you are doing do you?"
[02:02] Shadowcaller: *are you
[02:03] Murska: hm
[02:03] Murska: I think it was correct at first
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (perhaps)
[02:04] Happy: (it was correct the first time. silly english irregular verbs)
[02:05] Happy: /Yes you can. Let go of your fear. She is safe. We have hidden her./
[02:06] Happy: "We know what we're doing!" "We're singing you to sleep" And the pixies begin to sing a soft lullaby to Cessie, which has some of Aegnor's music incorporated into it.
[02:06] Murska: /But…/ Aegnor feels his concentration slip.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Music?… so its from you?… It reminds me…" *falls asleep*
[02:08] Happy: /She sleeps now. You will too. Sleep Singer of Songs/
[02:08] Murska: Aegnor closes his eyes and slumps against the tree.
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (I need to sleep now too >.>)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Good Night
[02:10] Happy: goodnight

Session Close (Group Conversation 1018): Mon Mar 30 02:10:27 2009

[02:10] Happy: The nymphs and dryads guard the party while they sleep, and will wake them instantly if anything threatens.
[02:11] Murska: But nothing will.
[02:11] Murska: Aegnor, once he wakes up, will still be tired but not exhausted.
[02:13] Murska: (will we continue?)
[02:13] Happy: (i should go to bed too)
[02:14] Murska: (aww. I guess we'll continue today evening.)
[02:14] Murska: (is this the first time SC left first? :P)
[02:14] Happy: (probably(
[02:15] Murska: (we got nothing to RP about? :()
[02:16] Happy: (sure, just don't start any fights)
[02:16] Happy: Happy is still asleep when Aegnor wakes up.
[02:16] Murska: (The army won't be risking chasing us.)
[02:16] Murska: (I couldn't let us kill too many druids yet, see. :P)
[02:17] Murska: Aegnor looks around a bit, trying to clear his head.
[02:17] Murska: He saves the campfire which was on the brink of extinction and decides to make Happy food for once.
[02:18] Happy: There's plenty of deer meat in all of their packs.
[02:18] Murska: Aegnor searches for edible plant-type stuff, asking the spirits for help
[02:19] Happy: The dryads and pixies are very helpful, and gather quite a few berries and nuts and edible leaves for him.
[02:21] Murska: Aegnor prepares them. He isn't an excellent cook but he's okay at it, after all, he's been living alone for over a hundred years.
[02:22] Happy: Ai approaches, trying to read Aegnor's mood.
[02:23] Murska: Aegnor is rather calm now. He desires to get to Cessie, rather obviously, but he's still tired and he's a bit worried since he doesn't think he should be that tired.
[02:24] Happy: (Can Ai tell why he's so tired?)
[02:24] Murska: (It's the curse but I don't think Ai can tell)
[02:24] Happy: (okay)
[02:25] Happy: Happy wakes up when she smells cooking. And since they were too tired to eat last night, she's very hungry. "It smells good."
[02:26] Murska: 'I hope it tastes good aswell.' Aegnor smiles. He's busy setting the food to an aesthetically pleasing formation.
[02:27] Happy: (Nothing bothered Cessie in the night?)
[02:27] Murska: (No, the spirits can easily keep any animals away.)
[02:29] Happy: The pixies all report: "Your fire human is safe." "She liked our music." "We sang her some of your song."
[02:30] Murska: 'Thanks. I trust you to keep her safe on the way to the tower.'
[02:31] Happy: "We will." "She's funny." "Not like you." "Very serious." "She asks lots of questions."
[02:31] Murska: 'Well that's true.' *smile*
[02:33] Happy: Aegnor is starting to realize that all of the Tree's sensory input is the senses of every nature spirit on the Tree.
[02:34] Happy: The spirits have minds separate from the mind of the Tree, but the Tree sees and hears and senses through them.
[02:35] Murska: *realizes this* :P
[02:35] Murska: @Happy: 'You gonna try nourishing yourself only on smell?'
[02:36] Happy: "It could probably keep me on my feet a few hours."
[02:36] Happy: But she begins eating. A lot.
[02:37] Murska: Aegnor, luckily, made a lot. But still, since they're both eating a lot, it finishes pretty fast.
[02:38] Happy: Ai doesn't eat much. Or maybe doesn't eat at all, I forget. Anyway, nowhere near as much as the two fighter types.
[02:39] Murska: Unless Happy says something, Aegnor eats silently.
[02:40] Happy: Happy's checking on the position of the army, which she'll report to Aegnor and Ai.
[02:40] Murska: The army is moving in the swamp, slightly faster. It should be a bit over a day until they reach the tower.
[02:44] Murska: After eating, Aegnor stands up. 'Well, we better get to the tower before they do.'
[02:44] Happy: "Indeed."
[02:45] Murska: After getting ready, which doesn't take long, they start going towards the tower.

[02:49] Happy: Happy and Aegnor set a pretty rapid pace, I imagine
[02:49] Murska: They see a couple rocks here and there but the terrain is reasonably passable.
[02:52] Murska: (Hmm. Exactly the same as my RL problem… 'how to start a discussion'…)
[02:54] Happy: "She'll probably get there first, right?" Happy says. "And you know Kelaron isn't going to let any undead near the Tower"
[02:54] Happy: *trying to reassure Aegnor*
[02:54] Murska: (first as in before the army, maybe since the nature spirits guide her, she is farther from it than the army. But no way she gets there before us.)
[02:55] Happy: (even though she can fly?)
[02:55] Murska: (She can't fly above the army, she'll have to circle. And since she went to the opposite direction from us, that means away from the tower, too.)
[02:56] Happy: (ooh. Then I guess Happy is totally mistaken about which way Cessie went)
[02:56] Murska: (she was pretty much in the center of the D2 and E2 border)
[02:58] Murska: 'I know… I know in my mind that she is safe but I can't… I can't feel that way.'
[02:58] Murska: (spoken very slowly, that's why there's those cuts)
[02:59] Happy: We hold her safe for you the voices whisper to Aegnor.
[03:00] Murska: (darn forum, let me PM festy -.-)
[03:01] Murska: /I know, I know./
[03:01] Happy: "At least she's learned a little about the outdoors since we first met."
[03:01] Murska: 'And she'll be flying so she won't even need that, probably.'
[03:03] Happy: "She killed more of them than we did."
[03:04] Murska: 'I know you're trying to reassure me but… I just want to see her again.'
[03:04] Happy: "I know. I do too."
[03:08] Happy: (I wonder if Cessie is going to talk to Helena any time soon? She's already feeling very neglected)
[03:09] Murska: (Probably won't unless you remind SC. :P)
[03:09] Murska: (I mean, think of Iwi)
[03:09] Murska: (We should probably notice it having escaped a while ago or something. :P)
[03:09] Happy: (Iwi's run away by now)
[03:09] Happy: (yeah)
[03:12] Murska: 'You know… Have you noticed we haven't really talked in a while?'
[03:13] Happy: "You sometimes go quiet for a while."
[03:14] Murska: 'I guess I'm used to spending time amongst my own thoughts.'
[03:17] Happy: "You're used to being alone. I felt it in your music."
[03:17] Murska: 'Do something for over a hundred years and you'll probably get used to it.' *smile*
[03:20] Happy: "No, I wouldn't have survived a single year like that. I don't know where you found the strength."
[03:21] Murska: 'What do you remember… Do you remember anything about what you did after you lost your clan?'
[03:23] Happy: "No, not much. I don't remember where I met Cessie or Nigma. Only that we were searching for something."
[03:27] Murska: 'I don't think you're the type to give up, even if you would be alone. I know I have no idea why I couldn't die.'
[03:28] Happy: "What would I have to live for, if I was alone?"
[03:29] Murska: 'The hope of meeting someone? I don't know… I had nothing to live for either, or so I thought.'
[03:30] Happy: "So much pain though…"
[03:30] Murska: 'You get used to that too. It… dies out.'
[03:31] Happy: "No. If it had died out, you wouldn't have been able to sing like you did."
[03:32] Murska: 'I just didn't feel it anymore. But it did cost me…'
[03:33] Happy: "Cost you what?" Happy asks softly.
[03:33] Murska: 'I was all but dead… I just wandered around, but never did anything, never let myself stay anywhere, never… felt.'
[03:36] Happy: "That's all changed now." *smiles*
[03:36] Happy: "Because of Cessie?"
[03:37] Murska: 'I think it started when I met you all. I'd never have let myself get attached to anyone before.'
[03:37] Happy: "What made us different?"
[03:37] Murska: 'I don't know… I just feel a connection to you.'
[03:42] Happy: "I'm glad" *looks away*
[03:44] Murska: 'You've saved my life many times now, but most importantly, you gave me a reason to keep it.'
[03:44] Happy: "And you and Cessie saved mine yesterday."
[03:47] Murska: 'Hm. I guess we are connected… Of course, I don't see how I survived this far when you've had to save my life almost daily since I met you.' *smile*
[03:51] Happy: "You're worth it."
[03:52] Murska: 'You really do like having me around, don't you.' *smile*
[03:52] Murska: 'Refreshing to meet someone who doesn't try to kill you, I guess.'
[03:56] Happy: "Are we doing the right thing, Aegnor? This war?"
[03:58] Murska: 'Yeah… I don't know if I'd have cared before but I don't want to let that abomination kill the Tree and everyone on it. Someone's going to have to stop it, why not us?'
[03:59] Happy: "That's what I thought. But almost losing Cessie… Maybe we should just get her off the Tree and go somewhere else, far away."
[04:00] Murska: 'I have thought of that… but it'd find us, eventually, and I feel like I have some sort of a responsibility towards the Tree aswell.'
[04:01] Murska: 'I'm the first elf to talk to it in a long time, and it's been hurt by the worm all that time.'
[04:02] Happy: "Maybe we could send her away, stay and fight ourselves."
[04:03] Murska: 'She'd never agree.' *smile*
[04:03] Happy: "No, I suppose not."
