New Dys 117

[18:17] Shadowcaller: Right, meeting with Helios
[18:17] Shadowcaller: So where do you make the circle?
[18:20] Happy [8]: at an appropriate isolated spot
[18:24] Shadowcaller: Okay, so a solid darkness emergies inside the circle "Ah, greetings."
[18:24] Shadowcaller: "Looks like you are in a tight spot eh? Well, let us help each other shall we?"
[18:24] Wolfbane: (When I leave for class in 20, continue without me if you can)
[18:24] Shadowcaller: (Continue 3empires then?)
[18:28] Happy [8]: "You don't usually offer help."
[18:29] Shadowcaller: "Yes… thats beacuse we haven't exactly been in a hurry until this moment have we? But new information have inclined me to give you a bit of a push in the right direction. We can't have you hang around here for another week can we?"
[18:30] Happy [8]: "So talk."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: "First of all, you missed by meeting. I am of course, deeply hurt. But no matter, since you didn't come to gallows end, I had to find out what bacme of you myself, and the resuslts was most intresting."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: "I found out that your dear friend Miranda have been betrayed."
[18:32] Shadowcaller: "But her own cult, anyone sensing the irony in that?"
[18:32] Shadowcaller: *results
[18:32] Wolfbane: Promise mumbles something about getting what you deserve in wolfen, but only Hope may hear it.
[18:33] Happy [8]: "Then your plan isn't going to work, is it?"
[18:33] Shadowcaller: "Of course it's going to, that Miranda was betrayed was the worst possible thing that could happend right now."
[18:34] Shadowcaller: "But it's just yet another obstacle, and we have been able to remove those before, haven't we?"
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "The cult revealed Miranda to the witchers which took her down. Miranda choose to give up her body in New Dys."
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "But while she was regenerating a new body, the cult imprisoned her. She is now in Worlds End somewhere."
[18:36] Happy [8]: "How?"
[18:37] Shadowcaller: "How what? How the imprisoned her? BInding magic, necroamncy at it's highest levels. I think the worm might have something to do with this…"
[18:38] Shadowcaller: *necromancy
[18:39] Happy [8]: "So now what?"
[18:39] Wolfbane: "We still need to take of the spirits here as quickly as possible."
[18:39] Shadowcaller: "Simple, you go to Worlds End, find Miranda, question her what the cult have left to and then follow them."
[18:40] Shadowcaller: "…a large number of cultists have left worlds end you see, the new that remains are guarding Miranda."
[18:41] Wolfbane: (Anyways, I need to be off. Don't forget to have someone ask about the spirit taht contacted Naib and how it can be linked to Promise)
[18:41] Wolfbane: (later)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: (See you.)
[18:42] Shadowcaller: *few
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "The spirits? Oh right, that little thing… well, it's time for my little push then. Giz?"
[18:45] Shadowcaller: "…yes? Why are you… no matter, what do you wish Helios?" Comes a voice from nowhere but it sounds like whoever is speaking is near. (not from the circle)
[18:46] Happy [8]: Hope has her hand on her sword as she looks for the speaker
[18:46] Shadowcaller: "Hey, no swords!" Comes the voice.
[18:47] Shadowcaller: "Yes, indeed, we don't want to hurt our allies do we Hope?" (Helios)
[18:47] Happy [8]: "Then show yourself."
[18:48] Shadowcaller: "Eh, should I show myself to these slobs?"
[18:48] Shadowcaller: "Sure, go ahead, it's no point of keeping it a secret now."
[18:50] Shadowcaller: A figure appears hovering slightly above the ground, it's a ribcage without any legs, two arms and a head warped in black cloth. Two red glowing eyes can be within it.
[18:51] Shadowcaller: Two swords are on it's back along with a belt strapped upon it's ribcage containing various pounches and other things such as throwing knives.
[18:52] Shadowcaller: "Group, met Giz, your watcher."
[18:53] Shadowcaller: Cessie stares blankly at the creature "…what?"
[18:54] Shadowcaller: Allyria just looks a bit suprised, backing away a bit from the "watcher".
[18:56] Happy [8]: *speechless*
[18:56] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[18:57] Shadowcaller: (Well, Murska haven't said anything so I'm going to pause here;))
[18:57] Happy [8]: (yeah, I would think Aegnor would have some comments)
Wolfbane says (9:55 AM):
"Are you the one who contacted Naib?"
(Oh yes, its epic)
Shadowcaller says (9:56 AM):
"Sze? Can I reply to that?"
Shadowcaller says (9:57 AM):
"By all means Gez, go ahead. You may answer any questions they might have." (Helios.)
"I watch, don't speak, wolfen."
Wolfbane says (9:59 AM):
"Then that means someone else knows what we're doing here."
Shadowcaller says (10:00 AM):
(we might want to wait now >.>) "By all means, continue that statement.'"

Aegnor says (2:11 PM):
'We got a somewhat suspicious offer for help.'
Shadowcaller says (2:12 PM):
"Truly? By whom?"
Aegnor says (2:13 PM):
'*name*
Shadowcaller says (2:14 PM):
"Thats a prticular name… how very odd. What type of help did this "Jaggerin" offer then? Where did you meet him?"
Shadowcaller says (2:15 PM):
Gex: "Eh, they didn't meet nobody."
Shadowcaller says (2:16 PM):
Cessie: "May I ask… how long have that… thing been "watching" us?"
Helios: "Oh, Gez? Not very long, isn't that true?"
Gex: "Yes."
*Gez
Happy [8] says (2:17 PM):
"Care to be a bit mmore specific?"
Happy [8] says (2:18 PM):
(you know, SC, you really shouldn't have my name in red in your signature… makes it look like I'm being bandwagoned. )
Wolfbane says (2:18 PM):
(heh)
Shadowcaller says (2:18 PM):
Helios: "Gez haven't watched you more then a couple of days. It's just my way to show you just how much I care. Isn't that sweet?"
Happy [8] says (2:18 PM):
(well… more so than I already am… *shakes fist at Reinholdt*)
Shadowcaller says (2:19 PM):
(I always have a name in red in my signature >.>)
Happy [8] says (2:19 PM):
(Then make it Murska's name or something…>.> )
Happy [8] says (2:20 PM):
Simone: "Why it necessary? You have Mote after all."
Shadowcaller says (2:21 PM):
"As I said, to make sure you dosen't make something stupid and die right in the middle of this. Gez is very good at helping, aren't you Gez?"
"Eh, yeah. I am."
Aegnor says (2:22 PM):
'Why didn't you tell us about him then?'
Shadowcaller says (2:22 PM):
"There is so much at stake here after all. We can't have you do any dangerous misstakes can we?"
Shadowcaller says (2:23 PM):
"Beacuse Gez works much better in secret, I didn't want to make you nervous did I? Besides, Mote isn't often with you…"
Aegnor says (2:24 PM):
'He won't be much of help to us if we don't know of him.'
Happy [8] says (2:25 PM):
"Do you have to talk in riddles all the time? What is your new plan? Or do you have one besides annoying us?"
"Oh wait… that's your old plan."
Shadowcaller says (2:28 PM):
"Talk in riddles? Me? I'm shocked that you say so, your percption must be legendary. Look here, I have helped you all this way, maybe not in way you can see, but I have been there in the shadows, guarding you from dangers you will never even be aware of."
*perception
Shadowcaller says (2:30 PM):
"Gez is one of those, he isn't suppose to be ordered around by you. You shouldn't even be aware of his existance. But since you have gotten deep into trouble now, I am forced to reveal him, since he have seen something, haven't you?"
"Yes."
Aegnor says (2:31 PM):
'So if you're trying to help us, there is no use of keeping said help hidden from us.'
Shadowcaller says (2:32 PM):
"Of course it is. You would be in far greater danger if you knew about it, and besides, it's nothing you would gain anything of."
"It wouldn't help you with this mission in any way."
Aegnor says (2:33 PM):
He rolls his eyes. 'Like you'd know about that. And how does knowing of your spy put us in greater danger?'
Wolfbane says (2:35 PM):
Promise tries to change the subject. "Helios, why would a spirit claim that I was somehow disrupting it's powers?"
Shadowcaller says (2:35 PM):
"Yes, I would in fact. I can't see a singel reason why I should tell you what I do every day. And I don't want you talking, interacting or even be aware of Gez in any way, it's just distracting. Besides, he isn't here permanently."
Aegnor says (2:36 PM):
'He had better not. And considering your noted lack for leadership capabilities and tactical planning…' He rolls his eyes. 'Whatever.'
Shadowcaller says (2:36 PM):
"I do not know that Promise, I don't have enough information to go on, you didn't even tell me it was a "spirit" before this moment."
Wolfbane says (2:37 PM):
"We /think/ it is one."
Shadowcaller says (2:37 PM):
"My lack of what? Like you would know anything aobut that Aegnor."
*about
Shadowcaller says (2:38 PM):
"Think it is one? How did it contact you anyway? Can you please tell me the full story before we continue this conversation?"
Wolfbane says (2:38 PM):
"Naib was the one it contacted."
Shadowcaller says (2:39 PM):
"Go on… or do you want him to explain the rest of it?"
Wolfbane says (2:39 PM):
"He knows it better than me."
Aegnor says (2:39 PM):
Naib: 'Claims to be a spirit and can control the evil ones. And says Promise stops him from helping. That's all.'
Shadowcaller says (2:40 PM):
"I see. Well, I can see what information I can provide about it."
Aegnor says (2:41 PM):
(Heh. Anyone with any tactical, common or leader sense whatsoever would already have the party as willing friends and helpers)
Shadowcaller says (2:42 PM):
(Helios haven't put much priority into this until now.)
(Willing friends and helpers? He don't need that.)
Aegnor says (2:42 PM):
(Into saving the entire creation?)
Aegnor says (2:43 PM):
(It's much more useful than unwilling people who want to kill you)
Shadowcaller says (2:43 PM):
(The creation haven't been in danger until now actually^^)
Aegnor says (2:43 PM):
(Oh, oh. Clues, eh? The worm is not the real threat after all.)
Shadowcaller says (2:44 PM):
(It is, but not a danger to creation, not until now.)
Aegnor says (2:44 PM):
(Anything it's capable of doing now has been within it's capability to attain so it's mere existance has been a threat to creation for quite a while)
Shadowcaller says (2:45 PM):
(Yes, but it have been controlled until this point.)
Aegnor says (2:45 PM):
(But everyone with a god's lifespan, or even elves', would know that's only a temporary solution)
Wolfbane says (2:45 PM):
"But how am I deflecting a spirit if it is one? I was told I'd need a connection with one."
Happy [8] says (2:46 PM):
(bah… make. plot. happen. soon……)
Shadowcaller says (2:48 PM):
(The worm haven't been made it's presense known until a year ago and then it moved around so much it would have been impossible to pin down.)
Aegnor says (2:49 PM):
(So Helios was just ignorant.)
Shadowcaller says (2:49 PM):
(He wasn't aware.)
Shadowcaller says (2:50 PM):
"Deflecting? Curious choice of words…"
"I very much doubt you have some type of connection to a spirit you haven't even been aware of to this point Promise."
Shadowcaller says (2:52 PM):
(Now I need to take a walk with the dog, brb.)
Wolfbane says (3:10 PM):
*pokes*
Shadowcaller says (3:16 PM):
(back.)
Wolfbane says (3:18 PM):
"Is there a way to tell?"
Wolfbane says (3:19 PM):
brb
Shadowcaller says (3:19 PM):
"Possibly… anyhow, when you bring that up. We are going to change our previous arragment at this point."
Shadowcaller says (3:20 PM):
"Since we are in a bit of a hurry here, I will provide any help you need for… free. As long as I can see that it have to do with the misson."
Shadowcaller says (3:21 PM):
Cessie: "What… what did you say?"
Shadowcaller says (3:22 PM):
"Free as in, no cost, no payback or return favours."
Happy [8] says (3:23 PM):
*speechless*
Wolfbane says (3:23 PM):
(Promise looks around for flying pigs.)
Shadowcaller says (3:25 PM):
(hehe.)
Wolfbane says (3:27 PM):
Promise blinks in complete disbelief for a few moments before speaking up. "Would that include giving me back my youth? And you wouldn't take anything from me?"
Shadowcaller says (3:27 PM):
"…who have claimed I can do that? But I suppose I can provide you with something…"
Shadowcaller says (3:29 PM):
A moment later Gez steps into the circle and comes out with a tiny vial. "This. Drink." He hands it to Promise. It looks like it's blood.
Wolfbane says (3:30 PM):
Promise looks at the others, still a bit unsure. "What is it?"
Shadowcaller says (3:30 PM):
"Blood, what dose it look like it is?"
(Helios)
Aegnor says (3:32 PM):
going to sleep
Happy [8] says (3:32 PM):
*hugs Murska*
Shadowcaller says (3:32 PM):
(Okay, night )
Wolfbane says (3:32 PM):
*hugs*
Night
Happy [8] says (3:32 PM):
sweet dreams
*tucks into bed*
Aegnor says (3:32 PM):
*hug*

Aegnor has left the conversation.

Shadowcaller says (3:32 PM):
(Promise can still ask questions if he likes^^)
Happy [8] says (3:33 PM):
"Whose blood?"
/Hope
Shadowcaller says (3:33 PM):
"A powerful spirits, thats quite rare, I wouldn't advise anyone but Promise to drink it however."
*spirit
Shadowcaller says (3:34 PM):
"Unless you like to have more fur that is."
Wolfbane says (3:34 PM):
"Would it be a spirit I know?" Promise really hopes Helios isn't implying a certain person.
Shadowcaller says (3:35 PM):
"Perhaps, I can assure you that it wasn't taken directly from the spirit in question."
"Or prehaps it was? No matter, I wasn't even alive back then."
Happy [8] says (3:36 PM):
"Which spirit?"
Shadowcaller says (3:36 PM):
"A powerful wolfen one, I can't exactly tell which."
Wolfbane says (3:37 PM):
Promise opens the vial and sniffs at it.
Shadowcaller says (3:39 PM):
It smells… intoxicating, overwhelming his senses. It seems to awaken some of his primal urges, just by smelling it. Never have be smelled something so good, something so primal. This blood *is* energy.
Wolfbane says (3:39 PM):
He coughs and prompty corks it again. Promise shakes his head a little, trying to clear it. "I..I think its true."
Shadowcaller says (3:41 PM):
"Of course it is, why wouldn't it be? Wolfen and a lot of other beings would pay a lot for that blood, and now you have it, for free. Truly these are desperate times, wouldn't you agree?"
Shadowcaller says (3:42 PM):
Gez stands back, hovering a bit at the circle.
Cessie: "Are you okay Promise?"
Wolfbane says (3:44 PM):
"I…I think I'll be fine in a moment, but, and I'm surprised I'm about to say it, I think we can trust him for now."
Happy [8] says (3:45 PM):
Hope puts her arm around Promise's waist, looking at him worriedly.
Shadowcaller says (3:46 PM):
Helios: "Why would I lie about something like that? I'm *hel ping* you after all."
(Helping.)
Shadowcaller says (3:47 PM):
"Trust Helios? I suppose…" (Cessie.)
Wolfbane says (3:47 PM):
Promise puts a paw on her hand. "Just /smelling/ this gave me a rush and made me feel better, I'm not sure what it'll do if I drink it, but I think it'll do what he claims."
Shadowcaller says (3:50 PM):
Helios: "You should dillute it with water however, just a tip."
Wolfbane says (3:51 PM):
"What would happen if I didn't? The taste of blood isn't new to me."
Shadowcaller says (3:52 PM):
"You have never tasted *this* blood Promise, the last human that tried it transformed into a wolfen, instantly. I can't say for certain what effect it might have to you."
Shadowcaller says (3:53 PM):
Cessie: "Transformed into a… wolfen? Blood can have that effect? I suppose with spirit energy… just keep it away from me." >.>
She gives the blood a glance.
Happy [8] says (3:55 PM):
Hope looks at it too, feeling a teeny bit tempted in spite of herself. Though not enough to actually do anything so irrational.
Wolfbane says (3:55 PM):
(I thought she would. )
Happy [8] says (3:55 PM):
"What about the worm, Helios?" /Simone
Wolfbane says (3:56 PM):
Promise looks at Hope. "Should I take it now?" He really does want her input.
Shadowcaller says (3:56 PM):
"Yes… the worm… it's where the cult is right now. I think they are taking control of it as we speak."
Shadowcaller says (3:57 PM):
"Or well, they belive that they do at least. The worm controlls them in ways they can not imagine."
Happy [8] says (3:57 PM):
"I don't know," Hope says.
Shadowcaller says (3:59 PM):
Cessie: "Seems a bit risky to me…"
Wolfbane says (3:59 PM):
"Could watering it down make it lose some of its effects?"
Shadowcaller says (4:02 PM):
Helios: "It's effectful enough in my opinion, but I guess thats a possibility. I wouldn't take such a risk however."
Wolfbane says (4:02 PM):
"Did anything else happen to the human who took it?"
Shadowcaller says (4:03 PM):
"She went a bit crazy for a while, then she calmed down and noticed what she had become. Didn't took it that badly strangely enough."
Shadowcaller says (4:04 PM):
"Nidra would have paid a lot of money for something with the opposite effect…"
Happy [8] says (4:07 PM):
(so how did me accusing Reinholdt turn into a SC wagon? )
Shadowcaller says (4:07 PM):
(Dunno, but I guess it was doomed anyway.)
Happy [8] says (4:08 PM):
(bah… don't give up)
Wolfbane says (4:09 PM):
(Which game is that?)
Happy [8] says (4:10 PM):
(memesville. Either SC is giving up too soon, or he's a wolf. But I was pretty sure he was innocent. -.- )
Wolfbane says (4:10 PM):
(oh)
Shadowcaller says (4:14 PM):
(Still Reinholdt did all that analyzing… hmm…)
Wolfbane says (4:14 PM):
Promise thinks and looks at the vial. "If watering it down can make it lose some of its effects, can I really afford to right now? And if nothing else happened to the girl…" He still sounds unsure.
Shadowcaller says (4:16 PM):
Cessie sigh, "It's your decision Promise, but I don't like potions overall."
(Maybe Aegnor should be here?)
Happy [8] says (4:19 PM):
(if his analysis wasn't total crap, I might have bought it, but he should know about NS's chivalry thing, since it was so prominent in the last game.)
Happy [8] says (4:21 PM):
(And I'm pretty sure he was in some of the chats last year when I teased NS for it and kept trying to convince him that chivalry has no place in werewolf)
Wolfbane says (4:26 PM):
(we done until Murska shows up?)
Shadowcaller says (4:26 PM):
(You decide, maybe Aegnor dosen't have an opinion?)
Wolfbane says (4:26 PM):
(He'd probably just say that it was his choice)
Shadowcaller says (4:27 PM):
(Mhm.)
Wolfbane says (4:29 PM):
(We'll see if Promise drinks it or not after dinner. )

Shadowcaller says (4:29 PM):
(Okay)
Shadowcaller says (4:49 PM):
,,
Shadowcaller says (5:00 PM):
,,
(What are you doing happy?)
Happy [8] says (5:00 PM):
(trying to lynch the cat)
Shadowcaller says (5:01 PM):
(My cat is sleeping next beside me… you aren't talking of it right?)
Happy [8] says (5:01 PM):
Reinholdt
Shadowcaller says (5:01 PM):
(I know >.>)
Wolfbane says (5:05 PM):
back
Shadowcaller says (5:05 PM):
(hello.)
Wolfbane says (5:08 PM):
Promise looks at the vial in his paws again, conflicted. After a moment, he looks back to Hope, looking for advice.
Shadowcaller says (5:12 PM):
(Happy is lynching Rein >.>)
Wolfbane says (5:13 PM):
(ah)
Happy [8] says (5:13 PM):
(well, trying to anyway )
Shadowcaller says (5:13 PM):
(Oh, I had a crazy idea when I went to sleep last night.)
Shadowcaller says (5:14 PM):
(The joker(ess?) interacting with Helios
)
Happy [8] says (5:16 PM):
(haha)
Shadowcaller says (5:17 PM):
(Not sure how that would be like…)
Happy [8] says (5:21 PM):
Hope looks to Helios. "This won't harm him?"
Shadowcaller says (5:22 PM):
"I don't know honestly, most wolfen can't afford my favors. But it shouldn't, it haven't harmed any non-wolfen that have drinked it at least, thought I can imagine some of you might consider being transformed into a wolfen as being "hurt"."
Happy [8] says (5:23 PM):
"I still wish you'd tell us where it came from. You must have some idea."
Shadowcaller says (5:24 PM):
"It comes from a great wolf spirit, it was collected by Nidra actually. She have had a lost of intrests in this area."
Happy [8] says (5:25 PM):
"Which spirit?"
Wolfbane says (5:25 PM):
"Ask her then. If this came from Dawn Wolf or Fenris…"
Shadowcaller says (5:28 PM):
"A moment."
Shadowcaller says (5:30 PM):
A few moment passes until Helios suddenly appears in the circle in his more humanoid form. "She assures me that it's one of them, but she dosen't know which one."
Wolfbane says (5:31 PM):
"Were they alive when she got the blood?"
Shadowcaller says (5:32 PM):
"…alive?"
"She didn't got the blood directly from them of course."
Happy [8] says (5:32 PM):
"How do you get blood indirectly?"
Shadowcaller says (5:33 PM):
"One of her servants stole it from some sacred altar or something like that."
Wolfbane says (5:33 PM):
"And the location of this altar?"
Shadowcaller says (5:34 PM):
"Oh, it's further east, down the plains."
Happy [8] says (5:35 PM):
"If there wasn't a link before between you and the spirits, there will be if you drink this," Simone says.
Shadowcaller says (5:35 PM):
"I fail to see what this have to do with the mission however."
Happy [8] says (5:35 PM):
"Go on with the mission. We'll decide about the blood later," Hope says decisively, with a gentle squeeze around Promise's waist.
Shadowcaller says (5:36 PM):
"You already know what you must do, now I ask how I can help you do it."
Happy [8] says (5:36 PM):
(um, he hasn't told us what we must do)
Wolfbane says (5:36 PM):
Promise looks at the vial before putting it in his pouch. "Thank you." he says mostly to Hope, but a little to Helios as well.
Shadowcaller says (5:36 PM):
(He told you that you need to get to Worlds End and talk to mirranda.)
Happy [8] says (5:37 PM):
(he did?)
(has no memory of that)
Shadowcaller says (5:37 PM):
(He did actually.)
Wolfbane says (5:37 PM):
(He did)
Happy [8] says (5:38 PM):
(copy?)
Wolfbane says (5:39 PM):
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "But while she was regenerating a new body, the cult imprisoned her. She is now in Worlds End somewhere."
[18:39] Happy [8]: "So now what?"
[18:39] Wolfbane: "We still need to take of the spirits here as quickly as possible."
[18:39] Shadowcaller: "Simple, you go to Worlds End, find Miranda, question her what the cult have left to and then follow them."
"We still need to stop the spirits plaguing us. They'll likely haunt us all the way to World's end if we don't."
Happy [8] says (5:40 PM):
(ok)
Shadowcaller says (5:41 PM):
(He said thank you to Helios? Pigs really are flying )
Wolfbane says (5:42 PM):
(He just gave him a clue on how to find Dawn Wolf and Fenris, or at least what happened to them)
(Not to mention what Promise is holding is a holy relic pretty much)
Happy [8] says (5:45 PM):
"How do we find Miranda?" /Simone
Shadowcaller says (5:46 PM):
(back.)
Shadowcaller says (5:47 PM):
"First of all you must go to worlds end, then I can guide you the rest of the way."
Wolfbane says (5:55 PM):
Is he going to say anything to Promise's question?
Wolfbane says (5:56 PM):
(well, statement)
Shadowcaller says (5:56 PM):
(Oh, I didn't notice.)
Shadowcaller says (5:57 PM):
"Yes, thats why I brought Gez here…" (paus for Aegnor.)
Shadowcaller says (12:11 PM):
"You have seen something haven't you?" Helios turns his attention to Gez that nods "Yes."
Happy says (12:13 PM):
Simone: "What is it?"
Shadowcaller says (12:15 PM):
Gez: "Beggar. Following Aegor."
*Aegnor
(Darn keyboard.)
Shadowcaller says (12:16 PM):
"Checked him up."
Shadowcaller says (12:17 PM):
"Lives in old building, hunted."
Wolfbane says (12:20 PM):
"Has he done anything?"
Shadowcaller says (12:21 PM):
"Follows you, lives in spirit building. Sucpicious."
Happy says (12:21 PM):
"There's a 'spirit building'?"
Shadowcaller says (12:21 PM):
"It's hunted. Just other words for it."
Happy says (12:21 PM):
(do you mean haunted?)
Shadowcaller says (12:22 PM):
(Yeah >.>)
Wolfbane says (12:23 PM):
"So the spirits have been living there?"
Shadowcaller says (12:24 PM):
"There are spirits there, not sure it's yours. But it's a good lead."
Shadowcaller says (12:26 PM):
Helios: "Indeed."
Shadowcaller says (12:30 PM):
Cessie: "Right, so we go to this house… and if the lead is wrong, then what?"
Helios: "Then I suppose I need to help you in some other way."
Wolfbane says (12:31 PM):
"Is there anything else you can tell us or help us with before we check it out?"
Shadowcaller says (12:31 PM):
"Anything you can ask for, I have a lot of resources after all."
Shadowcaller says (12:32 PM):
"As long as they have to do with the mission at hand, I can provide."
Wolfbane says (12:33 PM):
"I'm not sure." He looks at the others.
Happy says (12:35 PM):
"I can't think of anything at the moment."
Shadowcaller says (12:36 PM):
Cessie: "Silver maybe? Something to protect us from spirits."
Helios: "I have a armor made from silver if you need…"
Shadowcaller says (12:37 PM):
"Well, not 100 % of silver, that would be silly. But never the less."
Happy says (12:37 PM):
"Spirit weapons?"
Wolfbane says (12:37 PM):
"It sounds like it'd be heavy."
Shadowcaller says (12:38 PM):
"It's a lighter type of armor, more manuverability."
Shadowcaller says (12:40 PM):
"And yes, I have a few types of spirit weapons. What type do you wish?"
Happy says (12:41 PM):
"Arrows or crossbow bolts."
Wolfbane says (12:41 PM):
"A spearhead."
Shadowcaller says (12:42 PM):
"The rarest kind? Very well… how many?"
Happy says (12:43 PM):
"As many as you have. What we don't use, we'll return to you after the mission." /Simone
Shadowcaller says (12:44 PM):
(I don't think Murska is here >.>)
Happy says (12:45 PM):
(yeah v.v)
Aegnor says (12:45 PM):
(-.-)
Aegnor says (12:47 PM):
Aegnor looks up after his long silence. 'Vision. Glasses to see spirits, for example?.'
Shadowcaller says (12:47 PM):
(What are you doing?)
"Give me a few moments and I will try to get that order of yours, anything else will I plunder my own storage?"
Aegnor says (12:48 PM):
'Money often makes everything just a bit easier.'
Happy says (12:48 PM):
"Cessie? Can you think of anything?" Hope asks.
Shadowcaller says (12:49 PM):
Cessie: "Uh, let's see…"
"Perhaps something that makes us travel faster? That would be very useful."
Shadowcaller says (12:51 PM):
Helios: "Affermentive, some haste scrolls then."
Shadowcaller says (12:53 PM):
Helios: "Anything more…?"
Aegnor says (12:53 PM):
'I'm sure you have lots more to offer that we won't think of to ask.'
Shadowcaller says (12:55 PM):
Helios: "Well, the problem is that I don't exactly keep a storage for moments like these, the things you have is standard really. Powerful artifacts and so on is a different deal."
Wolfbane says (12:57 PM):
"If there is something else that could help us, we'd probably like to hear it."
Happy says (12:58 PM):
"What about capturing the spirits to use to save Zola? What do we need for that?" /Simone
Shadowcaller says (12:58 PM):
"Nothing more then the flute Aenor carries."
*Aegnor
(keyboard!)
Aegnor says (12:59 PM):
He sighs.
Shadowcaller says (12:59 PM):
"I wonder what such powerful device as doing in a little town as Kyou anyway…"
Shadowcaller says (1:02 PM):
"But no matter, I will provide what you have asked for. You should make a circle where such goods won't rise suspicion however. Not that there are many people on the streets these days. East Gate have really changed last time I looked here."
Shadowcaller says (1:04 PM):
"I can begin with the linses…"
Shadowcaller says (1:05 PM):
The shadows around Helios swirls for some moments. "There you are, please be very gentle with them, they are orginally made for some servants of mine."
There is some yellow cloth inside the circle.
Happy says (1:06 PM):
Simone steps in to get it.
Shadowcaller says (1:07 PM):
She dose so. Gez watches her calmly, Helios eyes appears to be directed at the celling.
Happy says (1:08 PM):
She carefully takes the bundle of cloth.
Shadowcaller says (1:10 PM):
As she dose so, five quivers appears around her, emerging from the shadows. "There, that should be enough for now."
Happy says (1:11 PM):
(armor and scrolls?)
Shadowcaller says (1:11 PM):
(Nope, not yet.)
Happy says (1:11 PM):
She takes the items out of the circle then.
Shadowcaller says (1:12 PM):
"So, may I ask what exactly you are going to do now?"
Happy says (1:13 PM):
"Go fight spirits."
Shadowcaller says (1:13 PM):
"Good, very good. I will keep those scrolls until afterwards then, did you want the armor anyway?"
Happy says (1:14 PM):
"Yes."
Shadowcaller says (1:15 PM):
"Right… just moment then."
Shadowcaller says (1:16 PM):
*a moment
Shadowcaller says (1:19 PM):
It takes a while, but suddenly parts of a rather light armor set starts to appear, there is a helmet without any cover for the face, a chain mail and a pair of gloves, all made in grey-ish silver.
Happy says (1:19 PM):
Simone sets them outside the circle.
Happy says (1:20 PM):
"Can Naib and I see Zola?"
Aegnor says (1:20 PM):
Naib: 'Please.'
Shadowcaller says (1:22 PM):
"Do you want to take her here, or do you really wish to visit my library?"
Happy says (1:23 PM):
"We can't take her while we fighting spirits," Simone says. "We visit your library. But stay out of Naib's head. That not part of the deal."
Shadowcaller says (1:24 PM):
*sigh* "Fine, if you wish to see persons laying still in bed while the worm is out there, be my guest."
Shadowcaller says (1:25 PM):
"Just step inside the circle."
Aegnor says (1:25 PM):
He does-
Happy says (1:26 PM):
And Simone is already there.
Shadowcaller says (1:26 PM):
The others can see how they dissapear amongs the shadows. Cessie sigh "This have never ended well…"
Shadowcaller says (1:30 PM):
Simone and Naib finds themselves in the middle of Helios library, there are four corridors, one in each direction, along them are endless bookcases filled with ancient tomes. They can hear low wispers coming from each direction. In front of them stands Helios in his more humanoid form, on his left side Nidra can be found, she scoffs as she see them, showing her fangs "Why do I have to see these
two?"
Shadowcaller says (1:31 PM):
Helios: "They are quite close to your village you know? Remember? The… thing?"
Happy says (1:31 PM):
"You don't. We just here to see Zola."
Shadowcaller says (1:31 PM):
Nidra: "Oh, I see… well, I can show you there if you wish, pet."
Happy says (1:32 PM):
We follow.
Shadowcaller says (1:34 PM):
Nidra turns to the corridor to the left, her heavy robe dragging on the floor after her.
Shadowcaller says (1:35 PM):
She moves quite slow, you can breath in the damp air of the library, it feels like hundred years of dust is coming into your mouth with each breath.
Shadowcaller says (1:36 PM):
(Was it smart to take in Simone if you were fading? >.>)
"So tell me pets… where are you?"
Aegnor says (1:39 PM):
'Assumedly in a library.'
Shadowcaller says (1:40 PM):
Nidra chuckles "The pet knows humor. But no, I didn't talk of *here*, I meant, you are at the plains soon, yes?"
Aegnor says (1:40 PM):
'Might be.'
Shadowcaller says (1:41 PM):
"Such silent creature… you do not wish to share? We could walk here all day."
Shadowcaller says (1:42 PM):
She never turns to face you, her voice can be heard, even turned away.
Aegnor says (1:43 PM):
'We could.'
Happy says (1:44 PM):
phone
Shadowcaller says (1:46 PM):
"But we aren't." She stops and turns towards you, her grin looks dangerously sharp, and her robe makes her look even more threatful. "Here, pets." Nidra puts her palm on the book case next to her which begins to move.
Shadowcaller says (1:51 PM):
It moves inwards and then to the side, seemingly without any mechanics involved. Beoynd it is a small room, a green carpet woven with golden threads with exotic patterns, a small chest, a vanity mirror to the left side and a large luxiorious bed with a bed stand beside it to the right.
Shadowcaller says (1:53 PM):
Underneath a lot of bedclothes, Zola can be seen, she lies almost perfectly still, only her chest moves up and down. She looks even paler then usual, her red lips making a quite strong contrast to the rest of her.
Shadowcaller says (1:54 PM):
Nidra steps inside first, she sits down upon the chest arrangeing her robes underneath her, dragging down her hood a bit more.
"There you are pets."
Aegnor says (1:57 PM):
'Zola…' Naib walks to her and kneels down next to the bed.
Shadowcaller says (1:57 PM):
She dosen't make any motion of his voice. Simone can see how Nidra watches them underneath her hood.
Aegnor says (1:59 PM):
He gently takes her hand into his and closes his eyes, his lips moving without him saying anything out loud.
Happy says (1:59 PM):
(Simone wouldn't want Naib to go into Helios's realm without an escort keeping an eye on things.)
Shadowcaller says (2:00 PM):
(guess, but someone else could have followed him thought.)
Happy says (2:00 PM):
(And she also feels a connection to Zola because she's also lost her home)
Shadowcaller says (2:01 PM):
"Sleeping bird need feeding no? Clan would have killed it. Twisted it's neck." Nidra comments.
There is a hint of despite when she mentions "clan".
Shadowcaller says (2:03 PM):
Zola's hand is quite cold.
Shadowcaller says (2:04 PM):
(relatively.)
Aegnor says (2:06 PM):
Naib pays no heed to Nidra's words and just stays there, motionless.
Shadowcaller says (2:07 PM):
Nidra scoffs and turns to Simone. "Pet is silent, no? Where is the pretty little bird flying then?"
Happy says (2:08 PM):
"Can you give them some privacy?"
Shadowcaller says (2:09 PM):
"Hmph, you sing then?"
Happy says (2:09 PM):
"Not much. I dance."
Shadowcaller says (2:12 PM):
"Dance? Maybe she's a little monkey then eh? (it dosen't sound like a insult) "Can you show me?"
Happy says (2:14 PM):
"Not here. We leave them alone, go somewhere else, I show you."
Shadowcaller says (2:15 PM):
Nidra nods "Of course pretty bird."
Nidra stands up, and walks out of the room.
Happy says (2:19 PM):
Simone follows.
Shadowcaller says (2:22 PM):
Nidra leads her to throught the corridor and stops and yet another book cases that she touches and opens. This reveals a great hall, the walls are blue while the celling and the floor are marmor white, the walls are decorated with banners of what might be noble houses or something like that. The thing that catches Simones attention thought, is a group of people that looks at her and Nidra oddly as
They come in.
Happy says (2:23 PM):
"Who are them?"
Shadowcaller says (2:24 PM):
"Mirrors, little bird." Nidra goes up to them. "Change, now."
Shadowcaller says (2:25 PM):
One of them, a man in dark clothes sigh "Fine."
Shadowcaller says (2:26 PM):
Suddenly the man changes in front of her eyes and becomes her.
Shadowcaller says (2:28 PM):
"Little older, please." Nidra commands.
Her clone suddenly grows older by a few years.
Shadowcaller says (2:29 PM):
"So, show us pretty bird, show us what you can do." Nidra turns to her smiling/girnning (hard to tell.)
Happy says (2:29 PM):
"Music?"
Shadowcaller says (2:29 PM):
"Ah, what music?"
Happy says (2:31 PM):
"Isandwani music."
Shadowcaller says (2:32 PM):
(which would be?)
Happy says (2:33 PM):
Indian style
Shadowcaller says (2:34 PM):
Isandawani music can be heard coming from nowhere yet from all directions at once.
Shadowcaller says (2:35 PM):
Her clone looks her at curiosly.
Happy says (2:36 PM):
Simone dances
Mostly just to give Naib time alone with Zola
her heart isn't really in it
Shadowcaller says (2:38 PM):
The clone is trying to copy her moves. And while Simone is making a to her poor performance, Nidra appears to enjoying it.
Shadowcaller says (2:41 PM):
The clone is learning disturbingly fast, it copies her every move perfectly.
Happy says (2:43 PM):
Simone finishes after a while. "What the purpose of that?"
Shadowcaller says (2:43 PM):
"To see you dance of course little bird…" She turns to the persons watching, including her clone. "Be gone now." They leave slowly.
Happy says (2:44 PM):
"I mean the purpose of copying it."
Shadowcaller says (2:45 PM):
Nidra turns back to Simone "For performances, we save everything here. Nothing go to waste. Keepers we are."
Happy says (2:46 PM):
"I see."
"I guess we should go back now."
Shadowcaller says (2:47 PM):
She nods "Yes, let's fly away now." Nidra steps towards the door where her clone recently left the room throught "Just follow me."
Happy says (2:48 PM):
She does
Shadowcaller says (2:49 PM):
They eventually come back to Zola's sleeping room. Nidra sits down on the chest again.
Happy says (2:52 PM):
Naib still in the same place?
Aegnor says (2:52 PM):
He's standing. 'I'm done. Let's go.'
Wolfbane says (2:53 PM):
(brb )
Happy says (2:53 PM):
Simone touches Zola's hand softly, and nods. "Yes. let's go."
Shadowcaller says (2:54 PM):
"Good, pets. Let's return, bird can't sleep forever, no?"
Happy says (2:55 PM):
"Take good care of her. I come back and dance for you again when she come back to us."
Shadowcaller says (2:56 PM):
Nidra just grins and leads them back to where they came from. Helios is waiting for them "Ah, you didn't manage to get lost after all."
Wolfbane says (2:57 PM):
back
Shadowcaller says (2:58 PM):
"Let's get you back home shall we? Just stand in the middle there…"
Happy says (2:59 PM):
They do.
Shadowcaller says (2:59 PM):
"Bye… do come again…"
They return to the circle.
Wolfbane says (3:04 PM):
Promise looks up when they appear. "Everything okay?"
Shadowcaller says (3:04 PM):
Cessie: "…how was she?"
Aegnor says (3:04 PM):
"Alive.#
"*
Shadowcaller says (3:07 PM):
(sec.)
Shadowcaller says (3:12 PM):
"Good, was she okay otherwise?"
Aegnor says (3:13 PM):
"Of course she isn't okay."
Shadowcaller says (3:15 PM):
"I mean… nevermind, I shouldn't have said anything…"
Happy says (3:16 PM):
"She's being cared for."
Shadowcaller says (3:17 PM):
(sec.)
Shadowcaller says (3:18 PM):
Cessie nods. "We- we should hunt the spirits then."
Wolfbane says (3:21 PM):
(did they ever get the weapons?)
Shadowcaller says (3:21 PM):
(Yes, they did.)
(Promises spear thing was in one of the quivers.)
Wolfbane says (3:23 PM):
Promise switches the spear head on his spear. "Starting now then?"
Shadowcaller says (3:25 PM):
Helios: "Yes, you should. Now I need to take my farewells. Gez can lead you there…"
Helios and the shadows dissapear.
Shadowcaller says (3:27 PM):
Cessie: "I suppose, yes…"
Wolfbane says (3:28 PM):
Promise sighs and takes out the vial of blood. "That means I need to decide whether or not to take this."
Shadowcaller says (3:30 PM):
"Err… yeah."
Allyria: "Now this is going to be intresting."
"Spirit blood from a spowerful spirit, I wish I had something like that in my packpack."
Wolfbane says (3:35 PM):
Promise looks at it. "I probably have to. If I'm drained again…" he shakes his head sadly.
Shadowcaller says (3:36 PM):
(Hope should be here, but I think happy is tired.)
