Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 28921): Thu Jan 14 23:31:31 2010
[23:31] Shadowcaller: Hi
[23:31] Wolfbane: *waves*
[23:31] Happy: *hugs everyone*
[23:31] General Shrimp: Hey!
[23:32] Shadowcaller: So… should we start?
[23:32] Happy: yus.
[23:32] Happy: Arim was taking arrows to Hector. I guess Karen and Luna are returning to the camp now
[23:32] Shadowcaller: They are.
[23:33] General Shrimp: Someone was taking arrows to Hector? That's a good way to make him happy!
[23:33] Murska: I have to restart before I join in
[23:33] Shadowcaller: Depends on how they take the arrows to him thought
[23:33] Shadowcaller: If they come from a bow for example…
[23:34] General Shrimp: Oh so he's getting shot by Arim? Okay. Um, Hector dies then! :P
[23:34] Shadowcaller: It was a example!
[23:34] Shadowcaller: *an
[23:35] General Shrimp: I know, I know! I'm being silly!
[23:35] Shadowcaller: So am I
[23:35] General Shrimp: No you're not, you're shooting my character!
[23:36] Shadowcaller: If I had wanted to kill your character, there wouldn't have been much left of him you know?:P
[23:38] General Shrimp: Right, anyway, arrows?
[23:38] * Aegnor has left the conversation.
[23:38] Happy: *pokes SC*
[23:38] Happy: Arim is your character :P
[23:38] Shadowcaller: Oh, right… got caught up in other stuff
[23:39] Shadowcaller: Like finding the numlock tagent…
[23:40] Shadowcaller: Arim approaches Hector and delivers back his arrows that now have been silver lined.
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "Karen made these for you."
[23:40] *
moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[23:40] Shadowcaller: Hi
[23:42] General Shrimp: "Karen made these?" Hector takes one of the arrows and carefully runs a finger lightly along the silver. "Remarkable."
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, she is quite remarkeable…"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "I don't know a first thing about this myself, she showed me thought."
[23:45] General Shrimp: "Heh, yes well, it's pretty obvious that you find her remarkable." Hector lets out a quiet chuckle and starts carefully inspecting each arrow.
[23:46] Happy: it's basically silver plating on the existing arrowheads
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Arim blushes and looks away. "Err… yeah, I guess."
[23:46] Happy: A bit clumsy due to being softened and hammered into place rather than molten on. Needs a proper forge.
[23:47] General Shrimp: "Tsk, there's nothing to be so embarrassed about, you know? Love is a wonderful thing." Regardless, with only the simple tools they have, Hector couldn't have done something like this, so he's quite impressed with the arrows.
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "Love?" Arim looks back at you, looking a bit suprised "I- I guess…"
[23:49] Happy: (totally just lust ;) )
[23:49] General Shrimp: "Maybe love is too strong a word. Whatever you two have, it's nothing you should be afraid of letting other people see."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "We are so few and my sister is here… I don't think it would be appropiated."
[23:52] General Shrimp: "Well, in that case may I suggest you do a better job of hiding it? When you blush as soon as I walk into the room, it's pretty obvious…"
[23:53] Happy: Karen goes to find Derek.
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "…Neria knows, but I don't like to be 'on' with Karen around her… you know what I mean?"
[23:55] General Shrimp: "…not really. I can't say I've ever really been in the same position as you."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Understandable…"
[23:57] Happy: *pokes Murska*
[23:58] Murska: Karen finds Derek.
[23:58] General Shrimp: "Well, in my line of work…relationships aren't really a good idea, you know?"
[23:59] Happy: "You okay?"
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "What… what do you work as?"
[00:00] Murska: 'Yeah.' He turns.
[00:01] General Shrimp: "A mercenary, a scout. I act as a way of exploring the route ahead of an army sometimes, other times I have to locate the enemy, record their size and movements, sometimes I'm used to set up ambushes…all by whoever pays me the most."
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "Oh… did it go well?"
[00:02] General Shrimp: "Well…I'm still alive."
[00:03] Happy: "I told her."
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "Um, I suppose, but was it a good job? You got a lot of money?"
[00:04] General Shrimp: "Enough to live on. There hasn't been as much demand, recently…"
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Why not?"
[00:07] General Shrimp: "I don't know. Maybe there is still demand and there's just more people doing mercenary work. Either way, money's been a bit scarce recently. But…I know how to live off the land quite easily."
[00:07] Happy: *pokes*
[00:09] Murska: 'What?'
[00:09] Happy: [00:03] Happy: "I told her."
[00:09] Murska: Aegnor sanoo:

[00:09] Shadowcaller: Arim nods, "Uh, okay. I have only lived off the land. Don't know much about the world outside the forest honestly."
[00:10] Happy: "I told Luna about her mother."
[00:11] Murska: 'Good.'
[00:11] General Shrimp: "Ah, I see. Well, I've sometimes wondered if that's a better option. Money is fine if you've got a lot of it…"
[00:11] Happy: "Why didn't you tell her?"
[00:11] Murska: 'Because I didn't have the right.'
[00:12] Happy: "But you aren't angry at me for doing it?"
[00:12] Murska: 'Not really, why?'
[00:13] Happy: "If you didn't have the right to tell her, then why was it okay for me to do it?"
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "Money is very good…" Arim agrees, "But it have only lead me too bad situations."

[00:13] Murska: 'It wouldn't be if I were you, but apparently it was okay for you.'
[00:14] Happy: "That doesn't make any sense."
[00:14] General Shrimp: "It's all too easy to waste money. If you use it sensibly, it works."
[00:15] Murska: 'I think she should know, but it wasn't my place to tell her. If you didn't think that way, then it's good that you did.'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "I'm not used to it, thats why I ended up in slavery." He sigh
[00:16] Happy: "So right or wrong depends on the person who does it? Mother didn't believe that."
[00:16] General Shrimp: "Slavery? How barbaric."
[00:17] Wolfbane: If anyone is paying attention, they may hear the clip clop of horse hooves approaching. >.>
[00:17] General Shrimp: …Wolf is doing something! RUN!
[00:17] Wolfbane: ^^
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "Well… yes, it seemed to be common thought…" He goes silent.
[00:18] Happy: "Do you hear horses?"
[00:19] Wolfbane: (Its good to know I can strike fear into the hearts of people just by posting in a game ^^)
[00:19] Murska: 'Hm. Yes.'
[00:19] Shadowcaller: (And thats one of the major cities in your country really shrimp >.>)
[00:19] General Shrimp: "Tsk. I may have worked for pretty much every side at some point in time or another, but slavery…I still don't see how it can-hmm? I can hear something."
[00:20] General Shrimp: (Hey. Characters are allowed to have opinions. Characters are also quite capable of shutting up about those opinions in certain places. :P)
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "Hm?" Arim looks up.
[00:21] Happy: "Demons don't ride horses, right?"
[00:22] Murska: 'They might.'
[00:22] Shadowcaller: (Unless they are demonic horses!)
[00:22] General Shrimp: "Weird place for…a hores to be. Excuse me." Hector hops up the stairs and grabs his bow and arrows, poking the unresponsive Wren as he passes. Whoever they are, they might not be friendly.
[00:22] Happy: "Oh… I'd better go get my bow…"
[00:23] Murska: 'Let's head to the others.'
[00:23] Shadowcaller: Luna is not in the camp.
[00:23] Wolfbane: Anyone looking will see a rugged looking woodsman in leather armor leading a horse with a girl on it towards them. He seems to carry no weapons.
[00:23] Elly: ( >.>) Wren wakes up… sort of. Stops daydreaming, really. "What is it, Hector?"
[00:23] General Shrimp: "Something outside, sounds like a horse." And with that, back down the stairs he goes.
[00:24] Happy: Karen goes to find where she left her bow, and then peers out to see who is coming.
[00:25] Elly: Wren follows him back down the stairs, stopping before entering the sunlight coming through the door or windows, though.
[00:26] Shadowcaller: Arim have taken up a bow as well, not really sure how to react to this.
[00:26] Happy: (and all our silver arrows?)
[00:26] General Shrimp: (Y'know, I was just about to say that!)
[00:26] Wolfbane: When the man sees the others, he speaks up. “Is there a Wren Inaria here?” His hands are held in the open to show he’s not carrying weapons.
[00:26] Shadowcaller: (He handed them out…)
[00:27] Happy: (but are they glowing)
[00:27] Elly: (Shiny, silly?
[00:27] Murska: Derek is somewhere close.
[00:27] Elly: )
[00:27] Shadowcaller: (Yes, they are glowing.)
[00:27] Shadowcaller: (As well as Dereks silver.)
[00:27] General Shrimp: "Nope, sorry."
[00:27] Elly: ( o.o )
[00:27] Shadowcaller: (And any other silver they might carry.)
[00:27] Happy: (Arim and Karen are probably covered with little glowing specks from the silver smithing)
[00:28] Elly: Wren stays silent, Hector cutting her off… she steps away from the window, and stays out of sight.
[00:28] Shadowcaller: (Mhm.)
[00:28] Elly: (And depending on how you interpret Mithril, Derek might be lit up like a candle. >.> )
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (Mithril protects you from certain types of demonic magic, especially mind effecting ones.)
[00:29] Elly: ( I meant how it's made. =p )
[00:29] Wolfbane: “I know she is here, but I understand. However, I do need to talk to you all. I would hope you’d listen because I was the one who got the demon army off of your asses before they came down and killed you all. No matter how much silver you have.”
[00:29] Elly: ( Elf-Steel, thrice folded silver…)
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (Well… just wanted that clear.)
[00:30] General Shrimp: "If you know she is here, why bother asking?"
[00:30] Wolfbane: “Because I needed to make sure. I’m not here to hurt anyone. Quite the opposite.”
[00:30] Murska: Derek takes his sword out slowly.
[00:31] Wolfbane: He’s been keeping his arms up and hasn’t moved threateningly at all.
[00:31] General Shrimp: "Yeah, you know you're not the first one to say that. The last demon who said that tried to persuade us to kill other children."
[00:31] Happy: Karen moves closer to Arim.
[00:31] Shadowcaller: The girl on the horse seems quite nervous.
[00:31] Wolfbane: “My companion can tell you that I speak the truth. She is one of you.”
[00:31] Murska: 'And one of you.'
[00:32] General Shrimp: "Anyway, we're all here. So go ahead and talk."
[00:32] Wolfbane: “Only until we can turn her back.”
[00:32] Murska: 'So leave her here and go away, we'll turn her back.'
[00:33] Shadowcaller: "Wait, what?" The girls say in a high voice.
[00:33] Elly: Wren looks across at Hector (Who's by/inside the door?) and whispers across, "The pyramid. You think it would…"
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Arim keeps Karen close to her while holding his bow.
[00:33] General Shrimp: (By the door. Visible to Wolfy.)
[00:33] Murska: (where's the log about the conversation with the shadow demon?)
[00:33] Wolfbane: “If you can do what you say, then turn her back now. There are other things to speak of.”
[00:33] Murska: (I need to know what I know)
[00:34] Murska: 'It takes a few days, you know.'
[00:34] Elly: (Can still turn your head, and anwser, silly!)
[00:34] Wolfbane: “Then start, then I’ll speak.” He looks at his companion. “If you trust them, go ahead.”
[00:35] Shadowcaller: (Sec…)
[00:35] General Shrimp: Hector can't really answer Wren without giving away that she's there…so he doesn't answer Wren.
He does, however, frown at Derek, "I hope you know what you're doing."
[00:35] Shadowcaller: (let me find it.)
[00:35] Murska: 'You can speak now.'
[00:37] Shadowcaller: (Ha! I had it!)
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
"The deciver demon that is hunting you, going by the name Maelstrus in this world. Better then his last name…"

[00:39] Shadowcaller: "Oh, and if your asking who the child is, it's a little girl that he have turned into a nearly a full demon."
"You won't find her on the list, she was the child of Mat Ironheart."

[00:39] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
"Maelstrus prime ability is his shapeshifting, the rest of his abilities are now forgotten. Except that desruction trick I teached him."
"If he touches your skin, he will kill you."

[00:39] Shadowcaller: "Then he have other abilities that he no longer can remember thankfully."
[00:39] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
"The girl… she can resist magic, scry you if she wish, control fire, turn invisible…" Pegrim smiles "A real sweetheart."

[00:40] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
"She can also sense danger, heal, and drain intelligence and memories."
"And shapeshift, just like him."

[00:40] Shadowcaller: (thats it.)
[00:40] General Shrimp: (Well, we're dead :P)
[00:40] Wolfbane: ()
[00:41] Murska: (That trick of Wolfy's is like created to make sure Derek can't fight him :P)
[00:41] Murska: 'What about you take your normal forms first, however?'
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (I made his trick before yours.)
[00:42] Elly: (Here, Wolfie… I have a present for you… >=3 )
[00:42] General Shrimp: (Why bother, Elly? We're all as good as dead.)
[00:42] Shadowcaller: "No." The girls declares.
[00:43] Murska: 'So you don't want to turn back anymore, miss Ironheart? I see.'
[00:43] Wolfbane: “I’m looking like this so you don’t shoot me out of hand. I think I’ll stay like this for now. As for how important we need to talk. Even Lugia and his mate didn’t find their hatred for me enough a good enough reason.”
[00:43] Wolfbane: good reason*
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "I- I don't want to look like that, can't you turn me back anyway?"
[00:44] Murska: 'I will be able to, if he *points at Wolfy* leaves and you stay with us for a while.'
[00:44] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, Lugia only threatened to kill you a few times, and Sifiera belived Lugia would kill you. Thats the only reason she let you go:P)
[00:45] Murska: (Pity Lugia didn't, it'd have been much easier for us)
[00:45] Shadowcaller: The girl nods. "Y-yeah."
[00:45] Happy: (Maelstrus seems to have the same silver tongue that Murska has)
[00:45] Happy: ('I scry as an evil demon, but i'm really neutral')
[00:46] Wolfbane: He looks at the girl. “Go on ahead, and get turned back. I’m staying out here to talk.”
[00:46] Wolfbane: “And I can’t leave, or the demon army will come crashing down here.”
[00:46] Murska: 'Yeah right.'
[00:46] Shadowcaller: The girl leaps off the horse and takes a few unsure steps towards the party.
[00:47] Wolfbane: “My companion heard every word of that conversation. She knows its the truth.”
[00:47] General Shrimp: "She's also your companion, which means we can't trust her."
[00:47] Murska: 'So why aren't you talking?'
[00:47] Murska: Derek waits for the girl.
[00:48] Wolfbane: “She hates me because I killed her parents. Doesn’t that give you enough reason to trust her?”
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "Eh…." She stops, looking not sure what to do. "I heard they say that…"
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "But I'm fine with you killing him thought."
[00:48] General Shrimp: "Um, no…because you said it!"
[00:48] General Shrimp: Hector sighs, getting very frustrated.
[00:48] Wolfbane: “If I die, all the other demons arrive.”
[00:49] General Shrimp: "Anything you say, or anything she says…we can't trust…because you're a demon! It's simple!"
[00:49] Happy: Karen steps outside and puts her hand out towards Sylvia. "Come on then."
[00:49] Wolfbane: “They know I’m here. And would you want to even risk killing me if it is truth?”
[00:49] Wolfbane: “They control a major portal near here and have only stopped coming through because I told them to.”
[00:49] Elly: Wren slips back upstairs before anyone (or thing) comes back inside. >.>
[00:50] Shadowcaller: She takes her hand, Looking nervous, just nodding and following Karen wherever she leads her.
[00:50] General Shrimp: "You know, if you demons have control over all these portals, why haven't you just taken over this world entirely?"
[00:50] Happy: Karen leads her inside the mill.
[00:51] Murska: 'Excuse me for a moment.' Derek follows Karen.
[00:51] Wolfbane: “Because of my lord. He controls most of it, and keeps it in balance. He never lets too many through at one time. He’s of the… older school of thought. There are a few who wish to change that though.”
[00:51] Happy: Hoping Derek was telling the truth about helping her and wasn't just planning to kill her. >.>
[00:51] Shadowcaller: (…thats exactly how I planned it, stop readin my mind wolfy >.>)
[00:51] Shadowcaller: *reading
[00:52] General Shrimp: "More stuff we can't be certain about, you know you're really not helping yourself here. How about you just cut the crap? We're not going to trust you just because your "presence" is the only reason why we're not dead right now."
[00:52] Wolfbane: “If those few succeed, they’ll inherit his power, the same kinds you have, and his forces. Then they’ll try to come through with nearly the entire demon population.”
[00:53] General Shrimp: "Just tell us what you want already."
[00:53] Murska: Derek sheathes his sword as he goes inside.
[00:53] Happy: (I imagine Arim is righttherenexttoKaren)
[00:53] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[00:53] General Shrimp: (…so Hector is guarding the door by himself? Fan-bloody-tastic!)
[00:54] Murska: 'So, what's your name?'
[00:54] Wolfbane: “I want your help in stopping those few. Specifically a demoness named Mithra. She is one of my lord’s most trusted individuals, but has been planning to kill him with the help of a rival.”
[00:54] Shadowcaller: The girl seems to notice the sword and lets go of Karen's hand "Sylvia Ironheart…" She takes a step backwards "What are you going to do with that sword?" She seems a bit too mature for such a little girl.
[00:55] Murska: The sword he sheathed?
[00:55] General Shrimp: "…what? You want us to kill /more/ demons? Seriously?"
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (Oh, I missunderstood.)
[00:55] Elly: ( You were going to beat her to death with a blunt case? JEEZE, Murky!)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (Then I guess she onöy said her name.)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (*only
[00:55] Murska: 'All right, Sylvia. Hold still for a moment.' He reaches towards her with his hand.
[00:55] Wolfbane: “The name I have is Maelstrus, and I’m here to stop the destruction of your realm. I had to kill her parents because if I didn’t, others would kill them /and/ her and her brother who is currently being held hostage.”
[00:56] Shadowcaller: She takes a stop backwards "What are you going to do?"
[00:56] Shadowcaller: *Step
[00:56] Murska: 'I'm going to start turning you back.'
[00:56] Wolfbane: “If you ask her, I’ve only killed one other /good/ child. The others were murderers and rapists.”
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "How?" She demands.
[00:57] Murska: 'With the power of an angel.'
[00:57] General Shrimp: "And in exchange for killing some other demon who is undoubtedly far more powerful than us? And murder is murder, even if you murder a rapist."
[00:57] General Shrimp: "Also, /again/ we /can't/ trust her."
[00:57] Wolfbane: “And if that rapist tries to rape Sylvia?”
[00:57] Wolfbane: “I’d say it was justified.”
[00:58] Happy: Karen bites her lip, and looks at Derek, realizing what he's about to do.
[00:58] General Shrimp: "To a demon, maybe. There is a system of law in this world, you know?"
[00:58] Elly: Wren is upstairs, unwrapping the pyramid from Hector's pack. Just in case. >.>
[00:58] Shadowcaller: (Well, she did look older back then… /totally justified.) "Uh… how would that work?"
[00:58] Wolfbane: “Yes, and if you don’t help, there will be no more laws.”
[00:58] Elly: (I looked older when I was younger! Honest! o.o? )
[00:59] Wolfbane: “Even your so called angels wouldn’t be able to stop her.”
[00:59] Wolfbane: (referring to Mithra)
[00:59] General Shrimp: "That's what you say anyway. But, how the hell do you expect us to stop someone that even an angel would lose to?"
[00:59] Murska: 'First, I'm going to make sure you don't hurt anyone, and then I'm going to give you an amulet, kind of the opposite the one he must have used to turn you. It'll take a while, however.'
[01:00] Wolfbane: “The angels could kill her by herself. I meant the armies she’d gain.”
[01:00] General Shrimp: "So why not get the angels to kill her?"
[01:00] Happy: Karen puts her hand in Arim's, shaking slightly.
[01:00] Wolfbane: “Because they don’t want to. I don’t know, I was lucky they didn’t eat me out of hand.”
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "Fine, do it then." Sylvia gives a shrug, suddenly looking confident.
[01:01] Wolfbane: “And besides, the gates and portals have to be opened by demons most of the time”
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (Angels can't enter the demon world, they resist all magic, including the portal magic..)
[01:01] General Shrimp: "So you're expecting us to, what, infiltrate the demon world and track down this powerful demoness and kill her? Even if we succeed, we'd still die trying to get back out!"
[01:01] Murska: He touches her and freezes her neck in place, then takes out the amulet from his clothing.
[01:03] Shadowcaller: Sylvia's eyes shine up as she see the amulet. "…do it."
[01:03] Wolfbane: “Thats actually pretty close to what I was planning. But we’d be killing her ally instead. And it isn’t nearly as dangerous as you think it is. Its a bit like here, just with demons instead.”
[01:03] Murska: He puts it on her.
[01:03] Shadowcaller: Derek might want to take off the amulet she have around her neck now first thought…
[01:03] Murska: Ah, well of course.
[01:03] Murska: :P
[01:04] Happy: Karen starts crying. (geez… she does that as often as Wren hides…)
[01:04] General Shrimp: …"Yeah, not dangerous at all, I mean it's only DEMONS! Why is it always us? Is there no group of demons that'd assist you? Why the hell do you bastards keep trying to drag us into your schemes?"
[01:04] Shadowcaller: Sylvia freezes, "…why is she crying?"
[01:04] Murska: Technically she's already frozen
[01:04] Elly: Wren watches from the top of the stairs, just barely in sight and hiding the pyramid behind her.
[01:04] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, thought she have resistance >.>)
[01:04] Wolfbane: “Why you? Because you have demon powers and I’m asking you because you’ve actually scared the demon army into calling reinforcements before I came here.”
[01:05] Murska: 'Ask her?'
[01:05] Murska: Does the amulet she has come off?
[01:06] Shadowcaller: Yes. (he haven't put in the other amulet yet thought) "WHy are you crying?" Sylvia asks bluntely.
[01:06] General Shrimp: "Scared them? Hah! Hardly. Look, even if this demoness is a threat, I still have no intention of stepping onto your home turf. I might agree to it if there was some way to get her…or whoever her ally is…on this side of a portal."
[01:06] Murska: He disgustedly throws the old amulet aside.
[01:06] Shadowcaller: Arim seems a bit uncomfortable with Sylvia.
[01:06] Murska: Then he takes the other one and starts putting it on.
[01:08] Shadowcaller: Karen can see it glittering in the dark. Sylvia starts taking quick breaths as he slowly puts it on. Then her eyes turns white and she starts swaying.
[01:08] Wolfbane: “Look, I really am trying to save your realm, hopefully turning back the girl if you haven’t killed her already, and came here in the open, no weapons.”
[01:08] Happy: Karen shakes her head and doesn't answer.
[01:09] Shadowcaller: (The demon amulet that is.)
[01:09] General Shrimp: "Girl could be a trap, you could have hidden weapons, you could have allies hidden all over the place, you may just want our realm for yourself."
[01:09] Murska: Derek freezes the amulet in place, next.
[01:09] Murska: Then he steps back.
[01:10] Shadowcaller: The one she have around her neck?
[01:10] Murska: Actually just a small part of it
[01:10] Wolfbane: “I don’t want to rule anything. Too much work. And go check on the girl yourself if you don’t trust me.”
[01:10] Murska: the whatever is hanging in the chain
[01:10] General Shrimp: "Yeah, because you'd really make a trap that we could find."
[01:11] Shadowcaller: After a moment or two Sylvia seems to recover. "Uhh…"
[01:11] Happy: Karen hugs Arim and cries.
[01:11] Murska: Derek keeps a close eye on her.
[01:11] Shadowcaller: He hugs her back trying to comfort her.
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "I feel… weak." She says, blinking. It sounds like she isn't even aware what she's saying.
[01:13] General Shrimp: "Okay, look, all things considered, I'd prefer to stay alive. So, explain. Who exactly do you want dead, and how are we supposed to do it?"
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "Where is Maelstrus?" She asks.
[01:15] Murska: 'Outside.'
[01:15] Murska: He stops the freezing. 'Want to sit down?'
[01:15] Shadowcaller: Now sounding like she is aware of her sorrundings… at least to a certain level.
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… thanks…" She sits down on the ground, scratching the back of her head a bit.
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "He kept his word…"
[01:16] Wolfbane: “Only two targets. Mithra, and the enemy Sultan she is working for. While an entire demon army likely couldn’t infiltrate his territory, you people, with all your silver weapons and powers could kill him easily without being noticed.”
[01:16] General Shrimp: "…the enemy Sultan? Explain."
[01:17] Shadowcaller: Sylvia sigh "I belive him… a bit if that counts for anything."
[01:17] Murska: 'I'm afraid I don't believe him.'
[01:18] Shadowcaller: "The part of the army is true thought, there were a lot of demons here."
[01:18] Wolfbane: “One shot with an arrow would kill him. He’s one of the major demons. Not as powerful as my lord is, but he’s smart. He’s allied himself with Mithra who tried to convince me to kill all of you. The reason I’m helping /you/ is because the moment she gets into power, she’d kill me.”
[01:18] Murska: 'I'm needed outside and, just for safety precautions, I should freeze you again. But I don't want you to be uncomfortable.'
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "It's okay, I won't hurt anyone… I feel really weak anyway."
[01:19] General Shrimp: "And you could of course be lying and could be working for her, and this could all be some sort of elaborate trap to kill us all. Don't you see what my problem is? I've got no way of trusting you!"
[01:20] Wolfbane: He sighs. “Why would I help the one who’ll kill me first chance I’m not useful? I know how she thinks. It’s what I’d do in her place.”
[01:20] Murska: 'Hm.' He looks at her. Is there any rope around?
[01:20] Happy: (ooh, that was a mistake)
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (Mpåe.)
[01:21] Shadowcaller: *Nope
[01:21] Murska: What about clothing someone isn't wearing right now?
[01:21] General Shrimp: "Because the only thing I have to go on is you saying that she'll kill you."
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (I don't know about the other characters…)
[01:21] Happy: (Karen has no extra clothing)
[01:21] Elly: (Wren isn't wearing her old dress.)
[01:22] Murska: Why does nobody in our entire party have rope. -.-
[01:22] Shadowcaller: (Karen have Luna's slightly too large clothes >.>)
[01:22] Wolfbane: “What would you do in her place? After you ascend to power?”
[01:22] Happy: (Karen fled with next to nothing)
[01:22] General Shrimp: "I know what you want me to say…"
[01:23] Wolfbane: “It /is/ what you’d do though, isn’t it?”
[01:23] Murska: 'Okay, take the most comfortable position you can now.'
[01:23] Happy: ((Why would I help the one who’ll kill me first chance I’m not useful? I know how she thinks. It’s what I’d do in her place.” = I'll kill you once you're no longer useful.))
[01:23] Elly: ( Yus. Me and Shrimpy figured that one out a bit ago, silly. =3 )
[01:24] General Shrimp: "Yes. I'd kill everyone who might threaten me. But of course, you could do the same, and by the sound of it we'd be at the top of you list."
[01:24] Happy: Karen tries to compose herself, and notches an arrow on her bow.
[01:24] Shadowcaller: She lays down on the floor, "LIke this?"
[01:24] Wolfbane: “No, because as long as you’re alive, my lord has a use for me.”
[01:25] Wolfbane: “And I plan on living, thank you.”
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Arim have an hand on her shoulder.
[01:25] Murska: 'I guess. Rest your head, I'll have to lock the amulet in place for now. I'll be back soon and if I die it'll let you free so you don't have to worry.'
[01:25] General Shrimp: "So we're only alive because you have a need for us. But if your lord decides you're useless anyway, then we still get it in the neck."
[01:26] Wolfbane: “No, because he’d kill me before I get the chance.”
[01:26] Shadowcaller: Sylvia nods and seems to relax.
[01:26] General Shrimp: "And if he knows about us? Then we still die."
[01:27] Murska: He freezes the amulet around her neck and walks outside.
[01:27] Murska: There he draws his sword again.
[01:27] Shadowcaller: He dose so.
[01:28] Happy: Karen finds a window and aims her bow. "I hope we kill him," she whispers to Arim.
[01:28] Wolfbane: “He knows about you because you have his powers. What you do after killing the two demons is up to you. You can farm, raise families, I don’t care. I don’t plan on hanging around anywhere where you, or my master can get to me.”
[01:28] General Shrimp: …
[01:28] General Shrimp: "Great…"
[01:28] Shadowcaller: Arim nods "Yeah…"
[01:33] Wolfbane: “Thats why he sent me after you in the first place. To get his powers back.”
[01:33] Shadowcaller: (Derek is coming with a drawn sword.
[01:35] Murska: He's just standing there.
[01:36] Wolfbane: He notices. “If you want me to leave, say so and I will. But at least let me unload Sylvia’s belongings.”
[01:37] Murska: 'Do so and leave.'
[01:37] Wolfbane: (I take it there is an anti-Maelstrus chat? >.>)
[01:38] Elly: ( Nu. )
[01:38] Wolfbane: (I’m surprised)
[01:38] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, there were always an anti-GM chat in the olde days.)
[01:39] Wolfbane: He nods and unloads a few of the bags from the horse.
[01:40] Elly: "Wait." She stands just inside the shadow of the door. "Can you explain how this works?" She holds out the Pyramid gizmo in both hands, tightly, and nervously.
[01:42] Wolfbane: He sets the bags off to the side and looks out of the corner of his eye, wary of past experiences with strange objects.
[01:42] Shadowcaller: (The pyramid is upside down by the way.)
[01:42] Wolfbane: (Does he know what it is?)
[01:42] Elly: ( Oops? =p )
[01:43] Shadowcaller: (Uh, well… if he tries really hard…)
[01:43] Wolfbane: (He doesn’t. He knows what happened the last time he tried to remember things)
[01:43] Shadowcaller: (Right.)
[01:44] Wolfbane: He shakes his head. “No. I don’t.” He gets up on the horse. “Watch over the girl for me. And good luck. You’ll need it. There are worse demons than me.” He leaves quickly.
[01:45] Shadowcaller: He dose.
[01:46] Shadowcaller: And Luna steps out of the forest about the same time "…that was odd, what happend to the girl?"
[01:48] Happy: As Maelstrus leaves, Karen draws her bow, preparing to shoot, but finally lowers it without doing so.
[01:48] Wolfbane: *whistles innocently*
[01:49] Wolfbane: (>.>)
[01:49] Elly: (IT'S A TRAP!)
[01:49] Murska: Lucky she doesn't know he got her mother
[01:49] Happy: He still cost her her mother.
[01:50] Wolfbane: (he doesn’t know that though)
[01:50] Shadowcaller: (Since it was different names in the wish.)
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "That was the guy hunting us huh?"
[01:51] Shadowcaller: Luna says, going closer to the mill.
[01:52] Happy: Karen drops her bow, her hands shaking.
[01:52] Shadowcaller: Sylvia suddenly looks a bit nervous "Wait, did he leave?"
[01:53] Shadowcaller: Arim takes a deep breath and puts his hands on Karens "It's okay, nothing happend."
[01:54] Happy: She looks at Derek.
[01:55] Murska: He looks back.
[01:55] Elly: Wren takes the Pyramid back upstairs, fiddling with the corners, trying to figure out which one was the top, anyway.
[01:56] Happy: "Why did you let him leave?"
[01:56] Murska: 'Because we don't have a way to stop him.'
[01:56] Shadowcaller: Sylvia tries to get up but the necklance prevents her "You… group, that army was real."
[01:56] Happy: "Kill him."
[01:57] Happy: "Isn't that your job?"
[01:58] Murska: 'It is, but I don't live long if I fight when I'm in a situation where I don't have any advantages.'
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "Is anyone listening to me? It's going to come for us?!"
[01:58] Murska: They're outside
[01:58] Murska: she's inside
[01:58] Murska: Derek hears her shouting and goes back in to let her go.
[01:58] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, but she is shouting anyway.)
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "We need to get out of here! Go!"
[01:59] Murska: 'Anything useful you know of them?'
[02:00] Murska: Derek grabs his pack and stuff. Probably one of the gold bags.
[02:00] Elly: Wren takes her little sack, and collects some of the things from around the mill to take with her.
[02:01] Happy: Karen as well.
[02:01] Murska: Someone go check what Wolfy left
[02:01] Murska: someone disposable prefarably
[02:01] Shadowcaller: "There are a lot of them? I don't know!"
[02:01] Murska: 'Where are they?'
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "They were in some clearing…"
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "A demon gate I guess."
[02:02] Murska: 'Which way is it?'
[02:04] Shadowcaller: She points in the direction of the river "That way."
[02:04] Shadowcaller: Luna and Arim help pick up the camp and the bags.
[02:04] Shadowcaller: "…you aren't going to leave me here are you?"
[02:04] Murska: 'Of course not.'
[02:05] Murska: So, what's the surroundings?
[02:05] Murska: River direction = demons, what's opposite? Where's the closest city?
[02:05] Shadowcaller: Do you have a map?
[02:06] Elly: *draws map in crayons*
[02:06] Murska: Derek probably does
[02:06] Murska: and Luna was scouting
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Well, the closest city is towards the mansion.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Derim is in the opposite direction of the demon army.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: But it's still a day away.
[02:08] Murska: What kind of a city is the closest one?
[02:08] Murska: some wooden palisade and a bunch of villagers doesn't help us much
[02:08] Shadowcaller: Well, thats about it I'm afraid
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Not that you would know…
[02:09] Murska: Then our only chance is to head for Derim, I guess.
[02:09] Murska: The map would show how big it is
[02:09] Murska: besides, it's right next to Derim
[02:09] Murska: and Derek's lived here for 20 years
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Okay, okay…
[02:10] Shadowcaller: So you set off towards Derim.
[02:10] Shadowcaller: On foot.
[02:10] Murska: While we're on our way Derek takes gold coins from the bag and gives everyone a bunch to hide around their clothing or whatever. Better than keeping them all together.
[02:11] Shadowcaller: Did you take Sylvias stuff by the way?
[02:11] Murska: yu
[02:11] Murska: p
[02:11] Murska: unless they were a trap or human heads or whatever
[02:12] Elly: o.o
[02:12] Shadowcaller: Nope, just some clothes and food.
[02:15] Shadowcaller: As you are out of the forest which dosen't take that long…
[02:16] Shadowcaller: But just when you are
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Cross that.
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Just as you can see the end of the forest, you can hear the sound of a horse.
[02:17] Shadowcaller: It's no doubt which horse this is…
[02:17] Elly: "…Someone is quick."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: It's coming towards you, in the direction you are going. It must have managed to circle you somehow.
[02:18] Murska: Derek steps to Sylvia and hides the amulet behind some clothing.
[02:19] Murska: Then he attempts to contact Marius. /Hey./
[02:19] Shadowcaller: /…huh?/
[02:20] Shadowcaller: Suddenly the Revenant comes in sight.
[02:20] Murska: /Marius! It's Derek. Where are you?/
[02:20] Shadowcaller: /Derek? What… am I dreaming?/
[02:21] Murska: /No, and there's not much time to explain. Are you at the HQ?/
[02:21] Shadowcaller: /Yeah, I just returned… why?/
[02:21] Murska: /There's an army of demons a day's travel from Derim to *whichever direction we're in* and they're hunting us. Help would be appreciated./
[02:22] Shadowcaller: /Blasted… I thought… I tell Tyril./
[02:22] Murska: /Be fast! We're on foot heading your way but we'll be caught for sure. I'll contact Tyril aswell to give you some credibility./
[02:23] Murska: And he does. /Tyril? It's Derek./
[02:24] Shadowcaller: You can see Maelstrus coming over a hill, slightly behind him is the Revenant.
[02:24] Murska: Anything else?
[02:24] Shadowcaller: /Derek? What in the void…?/
[02:24] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[02:24] Murska: /No time to explain. Marius is telling the truth, listen to him. We need help fast./
[02:24] Wolfbane: You can hear Maelstrus shout when he’s in sight. “Back to the trees! Use them for cover!” He turns around on his and shoots the demon behind him with a heavy crossbow.
[02:24] Elly: o.o
[02:24] Elly: Into the trees, then?
[02:24] Murska: 'That way is the army. Let's just kill them both.'
[02:25] Murska: 'Reinforcements should be coming from Derim but they'll take a while so if we can find somewhere to hold out until then…'
[02:25] Elly: "Both?" Wren looks at him. "Come on. There's demons in the Ithari. …he's just an unorthodox sort…"
[02:26] Happy: Karen gets her bow ready, and is waiting for orders.
[02:26] Shadowcaller: The Revenant is shoot with a crossbow, in the face. It shouts something "Betrayer!"
[02:27] Shadowcaller: /Creator be damned Derek, if you are going to leave me with this-/ The link closes before Tyril have time to finish.
[02:27] Murska: Derek draws his sword.
[02:28] Shadowcaller: The Revenant shoots a lighting bolt against Maelstrus.
[02:28] Murska: and stops at the edge of the forest
[02:28] Wolfbane: Mealstrus rolls off the horse, bringing up the crossbow again if possible
[02:28] Wolfbane: If so, he shoots
[02:29] Shadowcaller: Holding it's shield in a protective manner. The bolt hits the shield "I don't know your plans, but now you die.."
[02:29] Murska: Then he glances behind them in the forest. Is there any small buildings or villagers or manors or whatever nearby?
[02:29] Happy: (like the mill we just left :P )
[02:29] Murska: Mhm, but it was in the forest
[02:29] Murska: you can't defend a building in a forest
[02:30] Shadowcaller: Luna have dissapeared into the forest. Not what you can see, just some large stones.
[02:30] Wolfbane: Maelstrus shifts into an armored form with a mace, and shield. He swings it.
[02:31] Shadowcaller: The Revenant holds it's shield high, protecting it from the blow.
[02:31] Elly: ( The Revanant is on a horse, too? )
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (No.)
[02:31] Elly: ( Oh… )
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (it's floating in the air.)
[02:31] Elly: ( Right, right. )
[02:31] Happy: Karen is starting to feel anxious… wanting to attack, but afraid to be the one to do so.
[02:32] Murska: Well, where does Derek know or the map show is the closest one?
[02:32] Elly: /Use the Revenant's shield's shadow to stab a shadowspike into it's torso/ >.>
[02:33] Wolfbane: He shifts the shield into a tower shield and yells. “Some help would be appreciated!”
[02:33] Shadowcaller: There is some smaller villages along the main road, yes.
[02:33] Elly: (Or whatever else it closest. The wrist, if nothing else. )
[02:33] Murska: This land belongs to someone and that someone probably has a building somewhere. Maybe an abandoned castle?
[02:33] Happy: What is Sylvia doing?
[02:33] Elly: ( Grelm's Keep! )
[02:33] Shadowcaller: (Gah… )
[02:33] Elly: ( …obviously not stealing names. >.> )
[02:34] Shadowcaller: (Let me fix all characters actions…)
[02:35] Shadowcaller: Sylvia have been feeling really weak ever since the necklance was put around her neck. She is mostly holdin herself near the rest of the group.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: The shaowspike goes into the revenant's torso. It becomes slightly distracted by this and leaves and opening.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Arim is not sure what to do either so he just keep himself near Kara.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: *Karen
[02:37] Murska: Is there a defensible location nearby?
[02:37] Wolfbane: Mealstrus swings at it’s head when the opening is there.
[02:37] Shadowcaller: (Darn you Happy…)
[02:37] Murska: Castle, monastery, manor, village with a wall, even a bridge
[02:38] Happy: Karen shoots at Maelstrus
[02:38] Happy: (should we go round by round to keep SC from getting overwhelmed?)
[02:38] Shadowcaller: Yes. Eyers Hold some distance away. It haven't been used in years thought. Right now it only functions as a place where you trade horses.
[02:39] Murska: What is it?
[02:39] Shadowcaller: Okay, as Mealstrus swings his mace, he is hit by an arrow. Just a tower with some fence and a few houses.
[02:40] Wolfbane: Does it pierce his armor?
[02:40] Murska: 'Let's go around them and head this way. There's a tower nearby, Eyer's Hold.'
[02:41] Shadowcaller: Nope. He gets off the Revenant's helmet. It retreats away.
[02:41] Shadowcaller: He can hear the monkey demons approaching.
[02:41] Elly: o.o
[02:41] Murska: In the forest?
[02:42] Shadowcaller: Yes
[02:42] Murska: We get to running
[02:42] Shadowcaller: Luna teleports herself beside Derek and follows him.
[02:42] Elly: Wren will flee with the rest of them, keeping near Sylvia to make sure she keeps up. ( o.o )
[02:42] Wolfbane: Is the Revenant dead?
[02:42] Happy: Karen runs too.
[02:42] Shadowcaller: Nope, just headless.
[02:42] Murska: 'Hector, slow them down if you can.'
[02:43] Wolfbane: He shifts the mace into a greatsword and swings at one of it’s arms.
[02:43] Shadowcaller: It shoots another lighting bolt at him.
[02:43] Murska: (Whenever I'm fighting something and I ask 'is it dead' and get the response 'no, just headless', I take a look at it, decide whether or not it looks like a chicken and if not, it's time to get away.)
[02:44] Wolfbane: He tries to deflect it with his sheild
[02:44] Wolfbane: shield*
[02:45] Shadowcaller: The lighting bolt hits hard, he can feel himself get shocked.
[02:45] Wolfbane: How bad?
[02:45] Happy: (I should go to bed before Jackie scolds me…)
[02:45] Shadowcaller: Not lethal, he might move a bit slower for a few moments thought.
[02:45] Shadowcaller: (Huh? >.>)
[02:46] Happy: (Jackie and I made a deal for new years… he would get help for his depression, and I would try to keep a regular bedtime)
[02:46] Elly: ( *hugs* )
[02:46] Shadowcaller: (The alliances in this game are really screwed up:P) Okay, one last action from everyone.
[02:47] Murska: Run
[02:47] Shadowcaller: LUna is running along with Derek.
[02:47] Happy: Run
[02:47] Wolfbane: Maelstrus will try to stab the sword through the demon’s chest. >.>
[02:48] Shadowcaller: It's a suit of armor, it's not like it's more lethal there then anywhere else:P
[02:48] Happy: (Karen hates Maelstrus. Probably not as much as Sylvia does, but for similar reasons)
[02:48] Wolfbane: (No, but he’s trying to rip it apart till it has no form >.>)
[02:48] Wolfbane: (Does she know Maelstrus? Or is it in general?)
[02:49] Elly: (Cut the arms off! >.> )
[02:49] Happy: (The other demons… she fears them, but it's nothing personal. Like fearing a natural disaster.)
[02:50] Wolfbane: (But why is he different? As long as he’s been Maelstrus, I don’t think he’s done anything to her.)
[02:50] Happy: (Because of Maelstrus, Derek used the artifact that was supposed to save her mother)
[02:51] Wolfbane: (I’m sure they’re reusable <.<)
[02:51] Elly: ( >.> )
[02:51] Wolfbane: (Aren’t they?)
[02:51] Happy: (She has no way of knowing that)
[02:51] Happy: (and now she knows what was done to her mother. So even though she doesn't know you did it, she knows you did the same thing to Sylvia)
[02:52] Happy: (so yeah… it's personal, and with only IC knowledge)
[02:52] Happy: (if she had ooc knowledge, it would be worse)
[02:53] Wolfbane: (True. But he was willing to change Sylvia back. And he really isn’t the same demon any more)
[02:53] Happy: (only because he's trying to manipulate her and the party)
[02:53] Wolfbane: (Not really, he /did/ promise to change her back)
[02:53] Murska: So, let's say we reach the tower?
[02:54] Murska: But he assumed there's no way to do that
[02:54] Murska: thus, he was in fact lying all along.
[02:54] Shadowcaller: Uh, well there are people there.
[02:54] Wolfbane: (But, you’ll see)
[02:54] Wolfbane: (He said he’d try if there were a way. And there was)
[02:54] Wolfbane: (So he didn’t really lie at all)
[02:54] Happy: (so he's an honest murderer. :P )
[02:55] Elly: ( =p )
[02:55] Elly: So… Derek reaches the Tower first, Wren helping Sylvia probably in last.
[02:55] Happy: (anyway, he's perfectly willing to lie to demons)
[02:55] Murska: He's perfectly willing to lie to anyone(
[02:55] Elly: *prod*
[02:55] Murska: (But he knew if he'd deny the chance from Sylvia she'd never help him anyway)
[02:56] Murska: People there?
[02:56] Murska: Any specifics of the situation?
[02:56] Shadowcaller: Yeah, the tower is mostly used as a part of a inn these days, along with a building that have been built into it.
[02:57] Murska: map?
[02:57] Shadowcaller: There are quite a number of patrons there…
[02:57] Murska: if we're going to have a siege
[02:57] Shadowcaller: Give me a moment.
[02:57] Murska: Any guards or whatever official people?
[02:58] Shadowcaller: There is a messager/scout from Derim there, he is about the closest you come to that.
[02:59] Murska: 'People, I'm from the Ithari. There are demons heading this way, everyone should head to Derim as fast as possible.'
[03:00] Shadowcaller: The crowd becomes quite paniced and starts to leave right away, the inn-keeper refuses thought, this is all he have, he might as well die here.
[03:01] Elly: (Assuming there's an upstairs in a tower…) "Upstairs with the others, then. I have to get this place… arranged."
[03:01] Murska: need the map to tell Hector what to do
[03:01] Shadowcaller: (Um, yeah.)
[03:02] Murska: /Marius? We're at Eyer's Hold./
[03:05] Shadowcaller: /Right… I'm trying to make sense of all of this, but we managed to convince Arian to get an army./
[03:05] Shadowcaller: /Mind telling me how you can speak into my head?/
[03:07] Elly: Wren will take the time before the demons show up to start tipping over tables, and putting out the laterns on the ground floor. >.>
[03:08] Murska: /It's a long story./
[03:09] Murska: Hector will probably raise us some fortifications and add pits and such.
[03:09] Elly: … And once all the tables are knocked over, she'll take one latern to the corner of the room, and put a table directly in front of it, so that the entire room is in shadow, except that one corner, and a bit of the cieling. <.<
[03:09] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[03:09] Murska: that the road? Hmm
[03:09] Murska: How many entrances into the building with the tower?
[03:09] Shadowcaller: Three.
[03:10] Shadowcaller: *two
[03:10] Elly: "Derek, Hector. Mind helping me block off two of these doors?"
[03:10] Murska: Well, we want Hector to block 'em and strengthen the walls of the building, also build a fallback position to the actual tower.
[03:10] Murska: Derek helps.
[03:11] Murska: The fallback position needs to have one entrance
[03:12] Murska: And Derek needs to be able to block it off with a metal pipe and some freezing once everyone retreats there.
[03:12] Shadowcaller: Luna dosen't like a siege.
[03:14] Shadowcaller: Sylvia is very tired, she can't even keep herself awake.
[03:14] Shadowcaller: Arim seems very worried as well.
[03:14] Murska: brb
[03:14] Murska: breakfast
[03:15] Happy: Karen helps her to wherever their final stand position is supposed to be, and finds her somewhere to rest.
[03:16] Shadowcaller: Arim tries to help Derek whatever way he can before he goes to rest nearby her.
[03:16] Elly: Wren finishes her work by making a half-circle of tables around the stairs, then sits and waits.
[03:17] Happy: "Where do you want me?" she asks Derek, after getting Sylvia settled.
[03:17] Shadowcaller: (Oh, I thought you meant Karen…)
[03:18] Happy: (She's being kind to the girl. She has to.)
[03:18] Happy: (If anything happens to Sylvia, then she lost her mother for nothing)
[03:18] Shadowcaller: (Sylvia is very low on energy all the time, the amulet seem to drain her.)
[03:19] Happy: (how long will it take?)
[03:19] Murska: 'Go to the tower.' /Luna?/
[03:19] Shadowcaller: (Who knows?) /Yes…? what now?/
[03:20] Happy: Karen does so.
[03:20] Murska: /You can move much faster than the demons without us. You could meet up with the reinforcements from Derim and lead them here. Also tell them more of the enemy./
[03:21] Murska: Once they've blocked the doors Hector will keep drawing earth from outside to make pit-traps and such and form it against the walls and the doors to make them stronger.
[03:21] Murska: Godmodding him for leaving us here again. »
[03:22] Elly: ( Hector should probably start changing the road once he's done with our stuff. The Demonhunters should have the high ground for the demon charge. )
[03:23] Murska: (He has plenty of time for that)
[03:23] Shadowcaller: /…do you realize how…/ She sounds sad /Derek, what if you die here? I can't just leave you./
[03:23] Murska: /Would you also dying here help? If the Ithari get here faster, we're more likely to survive./
[03:25] Shadowcaller: /Yeah.. I'm not stupid, I'm going… I just wanted to know I really like you./ A paus and then she continues to flat that over /…so what am I going to tell them?/
[03:27] Murska: /I… Tell them where we are and what we're doing to defend, and anything you can about the enemy. I'll contact you from time to time so if they ask you something you don't know you can ask me./
[03:29] Shadowcaller: /Right, I'm going right now… see you./
[03:29] Murska: /And be careful, Neria… I like you aswell./
[03:30] Shadowcaller: /Please be safe then…/ She pleads and then cuts off.
[03:34] Shadowcaller: (And we hopefully continue tomorrow?)
[03:34] Elly: *nod*
[03:38] Happy: Karen will try to get a chance to speak to Derek after the prep work is done and before the demons arrive. But we can do that tomorrow.

[03:51] Happy: Karen waits until Arim is busy with something, and finds Derek alone. "Why did you do it?" she asks.
[03:52] Murska: 'What?'
[03:52] Happy: "You aren't stupid."
[03:53] Murska: 'Because there was no other choice.'
[03:55] Happy: "There was a choice, and you made it, and you didn't even ask me."
[03:56] Murska: 'What would you have done?'
[03:58] Happy: She turns away. "It was a stupid dream."
[03:59] Murska: 'The necklace might aswell be a permanent artifact.'
[03:59] Happy: "We'll probably never find her anyway. And even if we do, she'll be one of those… things… won't she?"
[04:00] Murska: 'There was no other choice here. But there's still hope.'
[04:01] Happy: "Don't tell me what you don't really believe."
[04:02] Murska: 'I don't. But nothing has changed in the situation.'
[04:04] Happy: "You're not going to make a deal with that demon, are you?"
[04:04] Murska: 'No.'
[04:05] Happy: "Good. I want him dead."
[04:06] Murska: 'Yes, me too.'
[04:06] Happy: "I want to learn how to fight."
[04:09] Murska: He sighs sadly. 'I understand. You can already shoot a bow.'
[04:09] Happy: "Yeah."
[04:11] Shadowcaller: (He should totally use the spells in the book >.>)
[04:12] Shadowcaller: (*scrolls.)
[04:12] Murska: (He hasn't had time to study them)
[04:12] Happy: (Karen should study them… she's the powerless one)
[04:12] Murska: (True. But think Derek would suggest she study demon summoning and such? :P)
[04:12] Shadowcaller: (taking levels in wizard? Should be fine^^)
[04:13] Shadowcaller: (Demon enslaving:P)
[04:13] Murska: 'But the skill to fight isn't like the skill to use a weapon. It takes experience and aptitude. Experience I'd rather you wouldn't need to get.'
[04:14] Happy: "I have to get some today."
[04:15] Murska: 'True.'
[04:15] Murska: 'Just remember to stay alive.'
[04:15] Happy: "You too."
[04:15] Murska: 'I will.'
[04:17] Happy: She sighs heavily and meets his eyes. "I know you did the right thing. But I'm not sure I could have done it."
[04:18] Shadowcaller: (Hey, they could still have a very powerful demon under their command… >.>)
[04:20] Murska: He looks into her eyes. 'It's my curse.'
[04:24] Happy: She holds his gaze a moment, and then hugs him.
[04:26] Murska: He holds her. 'We'll just wait for the Ithari to arrive now.'
[04:27] Happy: "I'm glad you're my father."
[04:27] Murska: He smiles. 'I'm glad I have a good daughter.'
