New Dys 31

[16:10] Shadowcaller: [05:27] Murska: 'Nobody but those inferior to you?'
[05:27] Murska: 'If there are any, that is.'
[05:28] Shadowcaller: "Show me that you have some talent first and I might consider it. It needs to be a challange after all."
[16:12] Murska: 'Hm. Sure.'
[16:12] Murska: 'Any preferences?'
[16:13] Shadowcaller: "Something… classy."
[16:14] Murska: (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyEYWFnfAe0)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyEYWFnfAe0
[16:15] Murska: 'I'm afraid this would need a proper orchestra backing for it's full qualities to shine.'
[16:16] Shadowcaller: "I can provide with that if you need it, good music is something I strive to hear after all."
[16:16] Wolfbane: "We have to set terms first."
[16:18] Shadowcaller: "If you win, I will set you free and send you back permanently. If you lose… you are all three going to stay here."
[16:18] Wolfbane: "If we win you send all /three/ of us back."
[16:18] Wolfbane: "Never to return here."
[16:19] Shadowcaller: "I was going to send back the others anyway."
[16:19] Murska: 'So that's one person's freedom on your side versus three on ours.'
[16:19] Murska: 'A little unbalanced, isn't it?'
[16:19] Shadowcaller: "Very well, only you then. I don't need to mad barbarian."
[16:20] Murska: 'It's still two to one. Don't you have anything else to put on the table?'
[16:21] Shadowcaller: "Hm, I already own the girl for all I know."
[16:21] Murska: 'Well we're disputing that here.'
[16:22] Wolfbane: "Maybe, but if you don't let them go, even if we lose, I can be very difficult."
[16:22] Shadowcaller: "Really? I think some music might change your mind…"
[16:23] Murska: Aegnor clenches his fist. 'You don't 'own' her, just like you don't 'own' any other person.'
[16:24] Shadowcaller: "We have to disagree on that matter then."
[16:24] Shadowcaller: "I own a lot of people inside this place."
[16:24] Wolfbane: "You don't own me yet. That is what this is for."
[16:25] Murska: 'Well, if you're so poor as to have nothing else with which to balance the bets…'
[16:25] Shadowcaller: Nodo smiles "I won't kill you all? Is that a good reason enough?"
[16:25] Murska: 'Well, that's balanced by us not killing you.'
[16:26] Shadowcaller: "Killing me? Ach, thats going to be a bit hard I'm afraid."
[16:26] Murska: 'Likewise.'
[16:27] Shadowcaller: "I doubt so." He geastures at the skeletons all around you.
[16:27] Shadowcaller: *gestures
[16:27] Murska: 'You're free to doubt all you like.'
[16:28] Shadowcaller: He looks at Raphel "Looks like there won't be a musical then, can you send these two troublemakers back home?"
[16:29] Wolfbane: "Don't bother trying to taunt him. He is just an arrogant <wolfencurse> who can't play as well as you."
[16:29] Wolfbane: /speaking to Aegnor
[16:29] Murska: 'I wouldn't say arrogant.' Aegnor sounds calm. 'He knows he can't play, he's just being sensible.'
[16:30] Wolfbane: (I imagine Hope will have a long talk about her cursing then <.<)
[16:30] Shadowcaller: Raphel flies in a circle around Nodo "Ugh, do I have to? It takes so much energy…"
[16:32] Shadowcaller: The albino elf seems confident with his ability however "A life for a life, thats all I ask for. If you aren't going to take that deal, then you don't have any reason to be here."
[16:33] Murska: 'Then if we win, she goes home, if we lose she stays here.'
[16:34] Shadowcaller: "Yes, if you lose, she will stay here. If you win she goes home never to return here again."
[16:34] Murska: 'Hm. But that sounds a bit dull. You sure you wouldn't be willing to up the ante, to make it interesting?'
[16:35] Shadowcaller: "I'm listening."
[16:36] Murska: 'Well, I suppose either of us two or both can stay here aswell, if you have something suitable to put into the field on your side. I would assume you're not willing to put your own life on the line, but maybe you have something else valuable…?'
[16:37] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… what might that be? I'm not sure what you would consider as valuable as your own freedom."
[16:37] Murska: 'What would you suggest? I don't think we'd care about anyone else
[16:38] Murska: 's life here…'
[16:38] Murska: 'But perhaps you have valuable objects or such?'
[16:38] Shadowcaller: "Ah… maybe you as a follow lover of music would be intrested in some of my instruments?"
[16:39] Murska: 'Possibly.'
[16:40] Shadowcaller: "I have a quite lovely collection actually… do you wish me to show me it?"
[16:41] Murska: 'As it is for lives, after all, it needs to be something as valuable to you. Anything especially precious?'
[16:44] Shadowcaller: "…I have my…" He pauses "…My wives Octavin."
[16:45] Shadowcaller: "If you are intrested in something with personal value. It's also a… very special instrument."
[16:45] Murska: Aegnor examines his body language very thoroughly. 'How exactly?'
[16:48] Shadowcaller: (He seems genuinly afraid of losing it.) "It just sounds… beautiful, not like the things down here."
[16:48] Murska: He nods slowly. 'It seems this way both sides have something of worth in it. I accept.'
[16:50] Shadowcaller: He dosen't speak for a moment, as he is in doubt. "I… very well."
[16:50] Murska: (I kinda want Hope here so I'll go play drums for a sec while it's still day and people won't whine, 'kay?)
[16:51] Wolfbane: (okay)
[16:51] Shadowcaller: (Happy is not here?)
[16:52] Shadowcaller: (Apperently not >.>)
[16:58] Shadowcaller: (I guess I will eat then, brb.)
[17:07] Wolfbane: brb
[17:10] Wolfbane: back
[17:16] Murska: back
[17:16] Shadowcaller: „,
[17:16] Shadowcaller: *pokes Happy*
[17:18] Shadowcaller: Where did she go? o.O
[17:19] Wolfbane: I think the maid service is coming by
[17:19] Shadowcaller: Should have warned us >.>
[17:20] Wolfbane: She said so yesterday
[17:21] Shadowcaller: Hm, yeah but now
[17:21] Shadowcaller: And I didn't hear it yesterday
[17:21] Wolfbane: *shrugs*
[17:21] Wolfbane: I don't know
[17:21] Shadowcaller: Neither do I
[17:22] Murska: well
[17:22] Murska: »
[17:22] Shadowcaller: So what should we do?
[17:23] Murska: 'Well, how will we do this?
[17:23] Murska: 'Face-off? A normal competition? Favoured instrument?'
[17:23] Murska: 'Judging?'
[17:24] Shadowcaller: "The judging will be done by threee people from around here. As for the form… I guess we can choose our favored instruments?"
[17:25] Murska: 'Only one instrument, for clarity. Will the judges really be impartial if they're from here?'
[17:26] Shadowcaller: "Of course, otherwise this competition would be quite useless wouldn't it?"
[17:26] Murska: 'Indeed.'
[17:26] Murska: 'I'm, as you can see, in travel gear… Would you happen to have a good quality double-neck guitar lying around?'
[17:28] Shadowcaller: "Of course I have, I belive Raphel can you show you to the showcases?" He looks at the little fiery thing again that sigh "Of course oh great one."
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (Hmm… need Hope there >.>)
[17:31] Murska: 'So, for the form… Face-off or normal contest? Songs or improvization? Voice counts as an instrument, of course.'
[17:33] Shadowcaller: "Yes, and I think it's best if we go with improvization as some of my melodies might have bad effects on the judges."
[17:33] Shadowcaller: "Face-off sounds most intresting."
[17:34] Murska: (Mine might make them wet themselves but that's all :P)
[17:34] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[17:37] Shadowcaller: (Darn it…)
[17:37] Murska: 'So, we take turns improvizing. What's the end? Time limit?'
[17:39] Shadowcaller: "I suppose we could take about five minutes each? Thats more then enough really. Perhaps even too long, but I like to see what happends."
[17:39] Murska: 'Right. How many turns?'
[17:40] Shadowcaller: "We take three turns each."
[17:40] Murska: 'Randomized starting order.'
[17:40] Shadowcaller: "If you wish, I'm sure Trion can fix something up…"
[17:41] Murska: 'Seamless, for audience entertainment?' He smiles.
[17:43] Shadowcaller: "Not much if an audience here I'm afraid. But I can't see it doing any harm." He smiles back as another explosion rocks the hall.
[17:45] Murska: (Now we're a bit stuck.)
[17:45] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[17:46] Happy: (sorry… i sort of went crash)
[17:46] Shadowcaller: (Oh, hi.)
[17:46] Wolfbane: *snuggles*
[17:46] Wolfbane: (Its okay)
[17:47] Shadowcaller: (What happend? o.O)
[17:50] Happy: (I was just going to snuggle the turtledog for a moment, but i fell asleep)
[17:50] Shadowcaller: (Huh…)
[17:50] Shadowcaller: (Like me then >.>)
[17:51] Shadowcaller: (How are you feeling now?)
[17:51] Happy: (need a few minutes to get awake)
[17:51] Shadowcaller: (Okay:))
[18:01] Shadowcaller: Hmm… *poke*
[18:04] Shadowcaller: (Err… so what are you doing?)
[18:05] Happy: *having some soda and waking up*
[18:05] Happy: (and reading the log)
[18:05] Shadowcaller: (yay, soda!… wait, I don't like soda.)
[18:08] Shadowcaller: (What is Hope doing during all this time?)
[18:09] Happy: How is Felia?
[18:09] Shadowcaller: She is shaking slightly
[18:09] Shadowcaller: But dosen't move otherwise.
[18:12] Shadowcaller: Her breathing is calmer
[18:13] Happy: Is there a chair anywhere nearby?
[18:13] Murska: (I'm having problems with my speakers »)
[18:14] Shadowcaller: Not really, the closest thing would be some barricades.
[18:15] Shadowcaller: (:S)
[18:16] Happy: Then Hope will gently lower her to the floor.
[18:17] Shadowcaller: Raphel looks at her oddly as she dose so. Is she still holding the knide to her throat?
[18:17] Shadowcaller: *knife
[18:17] Happy: No.
[18:19] Shadowcaller: Felia just sits there, Nodo turns to you, "…you should leave now. I give you 5 hours, use them for something useful."
[18:22] Happy: (five hours until the competition)
[18:22] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[18:22] Murska: 'Well I'll have to familiarize myself with the instrument of course.'
[18:23] Shadowcaller: Raphel flies toward the door "Hm, I guess I need to show you…"
[18:23] Shadowcaller: "How long will that take then?" (Nodo)
[18:24] Shadowcaller: He glances at Felia
[18:24] Shadowcaller: Not really concentrating on the conversation.
[18:24] Murska: 'Five hours should be enough.”
[18:25] Shadowcaller: "…leave then. Raphel, show them out."
[18:25] Murska: (sec, goddarn speakers)
[18:25] Shadowcaller: Raphel flies around nervously "Yes, yes… we should be going now." >.>
[18:27] Happy: "I can carry her to somewhere that she can rest," Hope says.
[18:27] Shadowcaller: "You will stay away from her…" Nodo's voice is cold as ice. "I can take care of it."
[18:28] Shadowcaller: "Just leave."
[18:30] Murska: Aegnor smirks very slightly.
[18:31] Shadowcaller: It's about now where Felia burst out into tears.
[18:31] Shadowcaller: "Leave! Now!"
[18:31] Happy: Hope gives her one last burst of healing, and then stands up and takes Goldie's paw.
[18:32] Murska: Aegnor heads for da guitar
[18:32] Wolfbane: Goldie goes with Hope.
[18:33] Shadowcaller: As the door to the cyan room closes behind them Raphel begins to speak "Geez, great work there mother bear, why don't you take a fieldtrip outside the academy while you are at it?"
[18:33] Shadowcaller: It seems to be aimed at Hope.
[18:34] Wolfbane: "Can't you do anything to get us out of here? I'd rather not spend any more time here."
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "Sure I can send you home. But then you will be back… again."
[18:36] Murska: 'Hm. What do you people suppose would be the easiest way to kill that guy?'
[18:36] Shadowcaller: "Nodo? People around here don't really want to kill him."
[18:36] Shadowcaller: "Since that would mean everyone else would die with him."
[18:37] Happy: "But they want to escape, right?"
[18:37] Shadowcaller: "Most of them are actaully here on their free will, ot too insane to return to the mortal realm."
[18:37] Shadowcaller: *or
[18:37] Murska: 'Could those who aren't be returned?'
[18:38] Shadowcaller: "Nodo feeds me energy so I can travel the planes, without him, I can only take like three trips."
[18:38] Shadowcaller: "Then I need to return to my home plane for a while."
[18:39] Murska: 'The guy is annoying.'
[18:39] Shadowcaller: "He's insane as pretty much everyone else around here."
[18:39] Happy: "And will this contest be judged by the insane?"
[18:40] Shadowcaller: "It will be judged by Trion, Sligaroshi… try to say that three times and… hm, I have no idea who the third judge will be."
[18:41] Shadowcaller: "I won't lie to you, most of them will vote for Nodo."
[18:41] Murska: 'That much for impartial judges.'
[18:41] Happy: "Can we talk to them first?"
[18:41] Shadowcaller: "Eh, they aren't that impartial, they just need some… convincing."
[18:42] Murska: 'How many people do you suppose there are who want to get away?'
[18:43] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… thats a very hard question. Trion wants to be here, Sli… Slime was made here so I have no idea what he or it wants to do."
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "The rest of them are drugged by love potions around the hour to be kept calm."
[18:44] Happy: "If they value this place, they should want us gone. It isn't as if we're going to sit by and be good little prisoners."
[18:44] Murska: 'Exactly why I put us in for the bet. If we lose, we're not going to be sent away.'
[18:44] Wolfbane: "If I have to, I'll destroy every instrument here." she looks at Aegnor. "Sorry."
[18:46] Shadowcaller: "I suggest you speak to them then… as long you aren't insane? You seem to have suicidial tendencies mother bear."
[18:46] Shadowcaller: *suicidal
[18:46] Happy: "Why do you say that? He didn't seem to care much when I threatened his daughter."
[18:47] Murska: 'He did.'
[18:47] Murska: 'She's more likely to be harmed by him than Hope, though.'
[18:48] Shadowcaller: Raphel laughs "You should be dead mother bear."
[18:48] Shadowcaller: "The only reason Nodo is not tearing your flesh from your bones right now is that he wants to have that musical."
[18:49] Murska: 'Well, I sure hope she bought his act of not caring. That might be interesting.'
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "The moment you let Felia go every skeleton would have charged and killed you… don't threaten insane guys childs, never works out."
[18:49] Murska: 'It's not like we'd ever have let her go
[18:50] Murska: and Hope here can destroy quite a lot of skeletons.'
[18:50] Shadowcaller: "They are just distractions, Nodo is the real power of this place."
[18:50] Happy: "He shouldn't have threatened Goldie."
[18:51] Wolfbane: "I shouldn't even be here, I don't see why he wants me anyways."
[18:51] Shadowcaller: "I don't think he cares about that, but anyway… we have a time limit here."
[18:51] Shadowcaller: "He wishes to collect you."
[18:51] Murska: 'I really need to get used to that guitar.'
[18:51] Murska: 'You should talk to the judges?'
[18:52] Happy: "Goldie and I will talk to the judges. Though if you can spare some time later… you know you're better with words."
[18:53] Murska: 'I'll try. Where's that guitar?'
[18:54] Shadowcaller: "Ah, let me show you the music room. This guy practically got every type of instrument in existance."
[18:54] Shadowcaller: Raphel flies towards one of the bookcases standing against the wall.
[18:55] Shadowcaller: He presses a secret switch at it's side and the bookcase slides open.
[18:55] Murska: Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the flying weirdo
[18:56] Happy: Hope keeps an arm around Goldie.
[18:56] Shadowcaller: (Darn those flying wierdos >.>) Raphel leads you up throught a staircase, there are paintings of very odd things filling it.
[18:56] Wolfbane: Goldie clings to Hope.
[18:57] Shadowcaller: You seems to be climbing up a tower, as you reachers the top of it, you find yourself in a room with darkened windows, only allowing sunlight in as well as a door.
[18:58] Shadowcaller: Goldie and Hope can her Raphel's voice in their head /I should go to the hall of flesh first, Trion kepts himself there. Just throught that door leading out from the library.
[18:58] Shadowcaller: /
[18:59] Shadowcaller: (the hall you passed remember? with the pillows and all stuff…)
[18:59] Happy: /The room with all the people mating?/
[18:59] Shadowcaller: /Yes, thats the one./
[19:00] Shadowcaller: Raphel opens the door for Aegnor, which leads to a corridor filled with windows. All of them are covered with black curtains however.
[19:01] Shadowcaller: "Do /not/ open any windows, there is a ocean of madness waiting out there you know?"
[19:02] Shadowcaller: He flies throught the corridor as he continues talking "All the women here went insane beacuse of a tiny hole in the women's quarter. Each night… ugh it wasn't pretty."
[19:03] Murska: 'I'd suggest moving to a more friendly neighbourhood.'
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "Kara sew her own mouth together… Hm, well this place contains a lot of energies these guys like to experiment with."
[19:03] Murska: 'Power for madness, the usual dilemma.'
[19:04] Shadowcaller: "They consider it worth the risk."
[19:05] Shadowcaller: You reach yet another door. "Here it is… the observatory, now used as the music room."
[19:05] Shadowcaller: (I gues hope and Goldie goes elsewhere?)
[19:05] Shadowcaller: *guess
[19:06] Happy: They want to know where Aegnor will be beofre tthey separate
[19:06] Happy: Also, Hope is checking on Goldie's heart.
[19:08] Shadowcaller: Raphel places his tiny palm on the door and it opens. Inside is a round room filled with instruments on the walls. There is three tiny, darkened windows an equal distance away from each other making the room lit up by the dim light outside.
[19:09] Shadowcaller: "It's always day here you know? Or most of the time, when it becomes night, you /know/ your dead, or worse."
[19:09] Murska: Aegnor searches for proper doubleneck guitar
[19:10] Shadowcaller: There is a table with a wooden chair beside it. A wooden mig have been placed upon it. There is also an armchair and a bucket that smells foul.
[19:11] Shadowcaller: "Uhh… I must have forgot to change that…" he finds one finely crafted doublenecked guitar hanging on the wall. It's bone white.
[19:11] Murska: Probably made from bone too
[19:11] Murska: He tests it's weight and shape first, then the tone carefully.
[19:11] Shadowcaller: Raphel touches the bucket and it dissapears, along with the smell. "Sorry about that chap…"
[19:13] Shadowcaller: It seems to be a bit too light when he first lifts it up, but soon feels more comfortable.
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Like it adjusts itself to him.
[19:14] Shadowcaller: I guess he tones it then. "Anything else you need?"
[19:14] Wolfbane: Does Goldie feel hungry?
[19:14] Shadowcaller: Yes
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[19:14] Wolfbane: "Is there food here?"
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (To Hope? o.O)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (Or are they all following Aegnor?)
[19:15] Happy: [19:06] Happy: They want to know where Aegnor will be beofre tthey separate
[19:06] Happy: Also, Hope is checking on Goldie's heart.
[19:15] Murska: 'Proper rythm backing.'
[19:15] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[19:16] Shadowcaller: "Food? I can get you some from the kitchen… what do you want?"
[19:16] Shadowcaller: "I have no idea what that is my pointy eared friend."
[19:17] Wolfbane: "Something with meat?" (I don't know how Goldie's heart is)
[19:17] Shadowcaller: (neither do I >.>)
[19:17] Murska: 'No matter.'
[19:17] Shadowcaller: "Meat eh? What kind of meat?"
[19:17] Wolfbane: "Venison?"
[19:18] Shadowcaller: "Any specific venstion?"
[19:18] Shadowcaller: *venis´on
[19:18] Shadowcaller: *venison
[19:19] Wolfbane: (Venison is deer meat, thats all >.>)
[19:19] Murska: (why not just say 'deer meat' then?)
[19:19] Shadowcaller: (By defenition, it's any mamal killed by hunting.)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: (mammal.)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (So, deer mean then? I will assume she said so…)
[19:21] Shadowcaller: "Very well, deer it is."
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Raphel dissapears witha spark.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: *with a
[19:23] Murska: Aegnor starts playing stuff.
[19:23] Shadowcaller: Raphel appears after a while, along with a wooden plate someone of his size shouldn't be able to carry.
[19:24] Wolfbane: (Goldie's heart is probably a little strained)
[19:24] Happy: Hope gives her some healing.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: The deermeat is smoking.
[19:25] Happy: (I didn't know venison meant any hunted meat)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "There you go…" He places it on the table.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (Venison can describe meat of any mammal killed by hunting)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (From wikipedia.)
[19:25] Wolfbane: (Eh, I just use it for Deer)
[19:26] Shadowcaller: ( but its usage is now almost entirely restricted to the flesh of various species of deer.)
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "Anything else?"
[19:27] Murska: (Why would ANYONE USE THE WORD?)
[19:27] Happy: (why do you use beef instead of dead cow?)
[19:27] Murska: ('Deer meat' is more specific, easier and more understandable)
[19:27] Murska: (I don't)
[19:27] Murska: (Cow meat)
[19:28] Happy: (…anyway)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: (It sounds smarter:P)
[19:29] Wolfbane: "Do you want anything?" goldie asks the others
[19:29] Happy: Hope will eat some of the deer meat.
[19:29] Happy: and give Goldie some healing.
[19:30] Happy: "If he doesn't send us back permanently, you can still do so temporarily, right?" Hope asks Raphel.
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "It takes energy mother bear, and even thought I'm technically made of it…"
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "I would need something in return for that."
[19:34] Happy: "We could make a circle, and send Goldie to the gods realm until we found a way to stop him. But hopefully it won't be necessary."
[19:35] Shadowcaller: "Good luck with that, this place is shielded from all connection. I'm the only one allowed to pass in and out."
[19:35] Happy: "I meant after you sent her back."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: "Oh… I'm not sure Nodo would allowe me to do that."
[19:36] Shadowcaller: *allow
[19:37] Wolfbane: "You sent me back last time."
[19:37] Happy: "What would you ask in return?"
[19:38] Shadowcaller: 'Don't know anything about you mother bear, not sure what you could provide me with.'
[19:39] Happy: "I'm a chosen of Kuori and a friend of Nega. I'm sure I could come up with something."
[19:39] Murska: 'Not to mention we have the favour of all gods alive, a connection to Helios, another to Zubera, favours owed to us by the dragon spirits…'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: 'Right… gods… I would need some energy then, they would understand what I'm talking about.'
[19:42] Shadowcaller: 'So, who wants back eh?'
[19:42] Wolfbane: "All of us."
[19:43] Shadowcaller: 'Ohh… that will take some effort, and a /lot/ of energy in return.'
[19:43] Happy: "We should try the challenge first, since it would be permanent. If you think he would keep his word, Raphel?"
[19:44] Shadowcaller: 'Eh, he's mad and all, but I don't think he would betray his own word.'
[19:45] Shadowcaller: 'If you can fix a meeting with Nega for me, I would gladely send you back. The problem however as I must mention, is to return…"
[19:46] Happy: "What do you think, Aegnor?"
[19:46] Wolfbane: "Is there any way to keep us from returning without having to deal with him? Maybe a god could help?"
[19:46] Murska: 'Best try the challenge. Nothing lost.'
[19:47] Happy: "If he doesn't send us back after the challenge, then I'll arrange a meeting for you with Nega in return for you sending us back."
[19:48] Shadowcaller: 'Hmph, it might already be too late then. But I guess, if nothing changes…"
[19:48] Happy: "Why do you say that?"
[19:48] Shadowcaller: 'I can't disobey direct orders.' >.>
[19:49] Shadowcaller: 'It's a part of our binding.'
[19:50] Happy: "Let's go talk to the judges. Goldie, do you want to come with me, or stay with Aegnor while he practices?"
[19:51] Wolfbane: "I'll go with you, I guess."
[19:51] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… got to go, I trust you can find your way there yourself?"
[19:52] Shadowcaller: "His majesty is calling…"
[19:52] Happy: "Will we be able to speak to you again before the contest?"
[19:53] Shadowcaller: "Of course, I will try to stay in touch."
[19:54] Happy: "How do we find Sligaroshi?"
[19:55] Shadowcaller: "Uhh… you can actually remember his name? Err.. well Slime usually keeps himself inside the chapel."
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "You know? At the garden."
[19:58] Wolfbane: "I know."
[19:58] Happy: "Yes. And you'll tell us when you know who the third judge is?"
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "Once I knew, yes."
[19:59] Happy: "Thank you, Raphel."
[19:59] Shadowcaller: "…no problem mother bear."
[19:59] Shadowcaller: A spark and he's gone.
[20:00] Happy: Hope gives Aegnor a hug.
[20:01] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'I'll have fun with this thing.'
[20:03] Happy: "If you get a fair judging, I'm sure you'll win."
[20:04] Murska: 'And if not, we get rid of the idiot and win anyway.'
[20:05] Wolfbane: "I hope…" she looks saddened.
[20:05] Happy: "What?"
[20:07] Wolfbane: "That this works."
[20:09] Happy: "If it doesn't, we'll get Raphel to send you back. And if he can't, we'll get him to send a message. Okay?"
[20:10] Wolfbane: She hugs them. "Okay."
[20:12] Murska: (I oughta go sleep asap »)
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (yeah, they leave I guess >.>)
[20:14] Happy: (will this get you back on a healthy schedule?)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (It's 22.15 PM, should be enough.)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: *10.15
[20:15] Murska: (so yeah, get sum RPing done before I go »)
[20:16] Happy: They go to see Trion.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: They pass the corridor filled with windows, down the staircase with paintings, into the library where they bump into some skeletons and then into the "hall of flesh" (now I need to use the bathroom, brb.)
[20:24] Happy: (I wonder how much time has passed on the ship?)
[20:24] Shadowcaller: (Not very much.)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: Inside you can still see Tiron standing in the middle room while quenstionable acts of pleasure are committed in the siderooms around him. He looks quite bored (even thought it's hard to see on a lizardman.)
[20:26] Happy: "Try not to pay any attention to the other rooms," Hope whispers to Goldie.
[20:27] Wolfbane: "I won't."
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (Well, crap.)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (you got killed wolfy.)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (In assassins.)
[20:28] Happy: "Hello, Tiron," Hope says.
[20:28] Shadowcaller: The lizardman turns towards her "Usssing my name now?"
[20:28] Wolfbane: (Told you)
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "I asssume you need something from me?" He sigh.
[20:31] Happy: (When did she not use his name? I don't think she ever spoke to him)
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (He is refering to the fact that people that uses names often want something.)
[20:33] Happy: "Do you know about the music competition?)
[20:33] Happy: *"
[20:34] Shadowcaller: 'No. I do not. May I inquire you about the details of such a thing?'
[20:35] Happy: "My cub Goldie challenged Nodo to a music competition. If her champion Aegnor wins, then Nodo will let us go, permanently. I've been told that you will be one of the judges of this competition."
[20:36] Shadowcaller: 'Ah, so what is the bribe then?'
[20:37] Happy: "Bribe?"
[20:38] Shadowcaller: 'Yes, you give me something and then I judge in your favor. That's how it works.'
[20:42] Wolfbane: "What is it you want?"
[20:43] Shadowcaller: 'I want a great deal of thingsss, what can you offer?' Tiron smiles.
[20:43] Happy: "We want you to judge fairly. What would we need to offer for that?"
[20:44] Shadowcaller: 'Judge farily? May I asssk what thiss competiton iss about?"
[20:44] Happy: "A contest of music between Aegnor and Nodo."
[20:45] Shadowcaller: 'I mean… whatss in the pot?"
[20:46] Shadowcaller: 'Dose he wants you to join this great hall?' He grins.
[20:46] Happy: "If Aegnor wins, we are returned home, along with <whatever that instrument was>"
[20:46] Shadowcaller: 'And if you lossse?'
[20:47] Happy: (what was the deal for? All three of us? Or Goldie + 1?)
[20:47] Shadowcaller: (All three.)
[20:47] Happy: "The three of us remain here."
[20:48] Shadowcaller: 'Such a foolissssh price, you mamalsss always leave thingss to chance.'
[20:48] Shadowcaller: *mammalsss
[20:49] Happy: "Aren't your kind protective of your young?"
[20:50] Shadowcaller: 'We aren't as hotblooded as you are. New youngsss can be made."
[20:51] Wolfbane: "Well, what is it you want from us in return for your favor in votes?"
[20:51] Happy: "A new young wouldn't be the same. I've grown somewhat fond of this one."
[20:52] Shadowcaller: He shrugs 'Ssso? But I like your direct approach and I do in fact have the perfect tassk for you.'
[20:54] Shadowcaller: 'But firsst, a simple geasss, you won't tell anyone about our conversssation?'
[20:54] Wolfbane: "That wouldn't help us any, would it?"
[20:54] Shadowcaller: 'Ssss… can't trust anyone.'
[20:56] Happy: "We accept the geas," Hope says.
[20:56] Wolfbane: Goldie nods.
[20:57] Shadowcaller: 'Good.' he makes a gesture and you Goldie can feel very strong magic effecting her and Hope.
[20:59] Shadowcaller: 'Zola have ecaped. Sssshe didn't take her potionss, must have misssed. Sslopy misstake, find her and drug her.' He picks up a glas potion from his belt containing a pink fluid.
[21:00] Shadowcaller: 'Her madnesss musst not spread.'
[21:00] Happy: "…. you want us to help you keep someone enslaved?"
[21:01] Shadowcaller: 'Ssss… not enssslaved, sshe is mad, all of them are.'
[21:01] Shadowcaller: 'Much better off thisss way.'
[21:01] Shadowcaller: 'Other option, death.'
[21:02] Happy: "How can we find her?"
[21:03] Shadowcaller: 'Lasst time I sssaw her, she was in the glas corridor.'
[21:03] Shadowcaller: 'Beware, ssshe iss a wizzard.'
[21:04] Happy: "And if we fail?"
[21:04] Shadowcaller: 'Sss… then you have lesss chance of winning.'
[21:07] Wolfbane: "Do you have something she wears or uses so I can track her?"
[21:08] Shadowcaller: 'Zola wearss nothing. Like the otherss.'
[21:09] Shadowcaller: 'No possessions…" Trion turns toward one of the rooms.
[21:09] Shadowcaller: Then he enters it, making his way past couples.
[21:10] Shadowcaller: He picks up something from the floor and returns 'Thiss is her towel.'
[21:10] Shadowcaller: (it smells disguisting…)
[21:10] Shadowcaller: (You *don't* wnat to know.)
[21:11] Shadowcaller: *want
[21:12] Murska: (will be going to sleep, will have computer on just for lulz at least for a while longer)
[21:12] Shadowcaller: (You should have gone to sleep long time ago >.>)
[21:12] Shadowcaller: (Or at least an hour.)
[21:14] Shadowcaller: He gives it to Goldie.
[21:15] Wolfbane: Goldie keeps from gagging. "/Anything/ else she uses?"
[21:16] Shadowcaller: 'Sss… not much, it's only Nodo who wantss to keep these doomed ssouls alive."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: 'Mostly, feed, breed, getss rid of excrement, washess.."
[21:17] Happy: "Perhaps it would be more merciful to kill her," Hope says.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: 'Perhapsss… up to you, can alwaysss claim sshe wass hostile.'
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "One lesss person for me to watch.'
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (What a wonderful place huh?;))
[21:22] Happy: "Do you like it here?"
[21:22] Wolfbane: Goldie looks at Hope. "You're idea may be better." /WOlfen
[21:23] Shadowcaller: 'Like it? I'm here to fullfill my goalss, other then that, I can't ssay I like it.'
[21:24] Shadowcaller: 'Magic, sspirit energy… I'm walking in the footssteps of a goddess.'
[21:25] Happy: "What would happen to you if Nodo were killed? Or seriously injured?"
[21:26] Shadowcaller: 'The Xaxox'sss constructs would overun thiss place…'
[21:27] Shadowcaller: 'Then the mussic would quiet, making the sssea of madness swallow uss.'
[21:28] Murska: and then I'd go to sleep
[21:28] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[21:29] Happy: "Then I should warn you. If we're made to stay here, we won't stop fighting him, any way we can."
[21:30] Happy: (Hope he gets back to a sensible schedule)
[21:31] Shadowcaller: Tiron smiles 'He will feed you drugss, only Raphel can reach the kitchen.'
[21:31] Shadowcaller: 'Die of thirsst or be drugged.'
[21:32] Happy: "I can't be drugged," Hope says. "I've cured men of poison before - poison that should have killed them."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: 'Sss… there are other waysss, but I wissh to have thiss place intact. The Xaxox guardianss won't touch me after all, but the madness…'
[21:35] Happy: "You would have nothing to gain by our remaining here. Even if Nodo were able to restrain us somehow, our friends would come searching for us. I am the chosen of Kuori, and my mate is the chosen of Zubera. I think we could do much damage, even in defeat."
[21:36] Shadowcaller: 'Sss… this place is protected from the outssside, a private sanctum.'
[21:36] Happy: "Could it withstand two of the Greater Gods?"
[21:37] Shadowcaller: 'The godss can't reach into the deep realmss… deepest part of it.'
[21:39] Happy: "My mate has been here before and escaped."
[21:39] Happy: "Trust me, you want us gone. If we are safely home, we have no reason to harm anyone here."
[21:40] Shadowcaller: 'We will ssssee. I sstill wantss my favor thought. May I assk who the other judgess are?'
[21:41] Happy: "Sligaroshi. But we do not yet know the third."
[21:42] Shadowcaller: He smiles 'Sss… those argumentss won't work against him. Sso you have to trusst in me.'
[21:43] Happy: "If we can carry out your request, we will. We only have a few hours until the competition."
[21:44] Shadowcaller: 'Good, I won't delay any more any more then.'
[21:44] Happy: "Thank you for your time," Hope says. She takes the vial of potion and they leave.
[21:46] Shadowcaller: They do, once again they come to the glass corridor. Outside it the exotic and wierd animals and plants are walking around. The park outside the glasss appears to be lit up by white crystals in the celling.
[21:47] Shadowcaller: *glass
[21:47] Happy: "Let me know if you smell anyone," Hope says quietly.
[21:47] Wolfbane: Goldie sniffs the air.
[21:47] Shadowcaller: She can smell Zola's smell quite clearly.
[21:48] Wolfbane: "Found her trail." Goldie follows it.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: They come to the part where the glas corridor splits, ot leads in the direction they never were in.
[21:50] Shadowcaller: *it
[21:51] Shadowcaller: As they follow it further they can see a blackdoor in the end of the glass corridor.
[21:51] Happy: brb food
[21:54] Shadowcaller: ..
[22:02] Happy: "Let's talk to Sligaroshi first," Hope says.
[22:02] Shadowcaller: (You are copying that name right?:P)
[22:02] Wolfbane: "Okay."
[22:02] Happy: (it's not /that/ hard)
[22:02] Shadowcaller: (I guess >.>)
[22:03] Shadowcaller: (I just wanted to make a complex name and failed)
[22:03] Happy: (should have used one of the name generators)
[22:04] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[22:05] Shadowcaller: They go back to the door leading to the womens quarter, only to find it locked. (they return and get the key, unessecary RP cleared) they open it.
[22:07] Shadowcaller: Inside they find that the body of th sailor gone, but the skeleton they have killed twice now is standing there with a new candle standing on the table.
[22:09] Happy: (we have to go past him again? *sigh*)
[22:09] Happy: Is he un-crushed?
[22:10] Shadowcaller: It's not moving as you are approaching. It sits perfectly still in it's chair. It's uncrushed yes. It might not even be the same skeleton.
[22:11] Happy: O.o It's Jensen.
[22:11] Happy: Hope steps into the room quietly
[22:12] Shadowcaller: The skeleton dosen't move
[22:13] Wolfbane: Goldie sticks close to Hope.
[22:16] Happy: They head for the other door. As quietly as they can. And open it. And go through.
[22:17] Shadowcaller: (the one leading to the garden?)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: (Or one of the other doors?)
[22:17] Happy: (garden)
[22:17] Wolfbane: (The garden)
[22:17] Shadowcaller: You come to the garden where you can see the frog laying in it's hole.
[22:19] Happy: They try and get to the chapel (it's the chapel, right?)
[22:20] Shadowcaller: Yes
[22:20] Shadowcaller: (second.)
[22:20] Happy: Without getting nommed by Froggy
[22:21] Shadowcaller: It just gives you a quick glance and then goes back to sleep.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: You enter the chapel that still looks the same as you left it.
[22:22] Happy: They step inside. "Sligaroshi?" Hope asks.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: There is no answer.
[22:25] Happy: "Did you ever meet him?" Hope asks Goldie.
[22:28] Wolfbane: "No, I didn't."
[22:29] Happy: "I guess there's that door." Are there any other places somewhere might be?
[22:29] Happy: *someone
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (Well, there is that door behind the statue…)
[22:30] Happy: (that's what she just said…)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (Oh…)
[22:30] Happy: (sot hat's the only place?)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (Well, there is the drinking place, the age corridor…)
[22:30] Happy: (here in the chapel?)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[22:31] Happy: (just don't want to miss something obvious like the chest being unlocked ;) )
[22:31] Shadowcaller: (Right >.>)
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (Nothing here thought.)
[22:32] Happy: Hope goes around behind the statue and knocks on the door. "Sligaroshi?"
[22:33] Shadowcaller: There is no reply, but she can hear a dull clicking side on the other side.
[22:33] Happy: Hope tries to open the door.
[22:34] Shadowcaller: It glides open. She can hear the clicking sound a bit clearer now.
[22:34] Happy: She looks inside.
[22:37] Shadowcaller: Inside there are a floating upright metal capsule with two metal probes sticking out from it and a large red eye. It appears to be busy filling things into a large glas container.
[22:37] Happy: "Sligaroshi?"
[22:38] Shadowcaller: The capsule turns to her "Dot! Data detecting… human female."
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Reading mind patterns…" The capsule comes toward her.
[22:39] Happy: "Um… Hello?"
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "Dot! Mind patterns stable! Person confirmed…"
[22:41] Shadowcaller: There is a loud click and the voice of the capsule changes. "Nout be praised!"
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Worship Nout and you will win ethernal freedom, Nout is the way to sanity, Nout is the supreme god of man and machine…"
[22:42] Happy: "Who are you?"
[22:42] Wolfbane: brb, dinner
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "Capsule number 145, servant of Nout almighty, humble machine in service if man. Lives to serve…"
[22:43] Happy: "Can you tell me where I can find Sligaroshi?"
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "Nout will lead the way, the being known as… "Sligaroshi" (it says this with Hope's own voice) can be found in the room beyond."
[22:45] Happy: "Thank you," Hope says. Does she see a door?
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (Yes, there is similar door leading into another room.)
[22:46] Happy: She tries to go that way with Goldie then.
[22:50] Shadowcaller: She opens the door and finds herself in a room filled with similar capsules, but none of them appears to be active. Standing in a row. Above her she can see staircases leading upwards. At the far end of the room is a large machine that looks very much like an crematorium. Near it a black figure stands. The room is mostly dark except from the machine that gives away a dim lgiht which makes
[22:50] Shadowcaller: everything inside the room cast long shadows.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: From the platfrom the machine is standing on, staircases are leading to the levels above.
[22:51] Happy: Is the black figure moving?
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Yes, it's moving back and fourth.
[22:52] Happy: How far away is it?
[22:52] Shadowcaller: A few meters t the large machine. She can see traces of ashes upon the floor.
[22:53] Happy: "Hello?
[22:54] Shadowcaller: "Kraa? who might that be?" The black figure turns around which reveals a beaked face. It's quite short huddeled together in black clothing with a few feathers standing out.
[22:55] Happy: "My name is Hope, and I come to speak to Sligaroshi."
[22:56] Shadowcaller: "Me? A lovely creature such as you wish to speak to me?"
[22:57] Shadowcaller: It steps down the platform.
Happy says (4:59 PM):
(now?)
Shadowcaller says (5:00 PM):
Yeah
Shadowcaller says (5:01 PM):
"Why then?"
Happy says (5:02 PM):
"My cub has challenged Nodo to a music competition. We've been told you will be one of the judges."
Shadowcaller says (5:02 PM):
"Me? Krakrakra…"
Shadowcaller says (5:03 PM):
"What's a cub?"
Happy says (5:03 PM):
"A child. This child in particular." Hope says, indicating Goldie.
Shadowcaller says (5:05 PM):
The bird creature titles it's head a bit, looking at Goldie "Wonderful… then he wishes to add her? How evil…" He suddenly turns to the wall next to Hope and says "No, I won't do that." Then back to her.
Wolfbane says (5:06 PM):
back
Happy says (5:06 PM):
"Who were you speaking to?"
Shadowcaller says (5:07 PM):
"Jiagix, terrible ideas…"
Happy says (5:08 PM):
"We only wish to return home. If Goldie's champion wins the challenge, then Nogo has promised to return us, permanently."
Wolfbane says (5:08 PM):
Nodo*
I think
Shadowcaller says (5:09 PM):
"See, see… such a terrible ordeal… No, it's very wrong Jiagix."
(Yeah.)
Happy says (5:09 PM):
"Who is Jiagix?"
Shadowcaller says (5:10 PM):
"Hm, didn't he introduce himself? How very rude."
Shadowcaller says (5:12 PM):
He points at the empty wall. "Jiagix is the eyes… oh and the mouths. He likes spiders too. A lot of spiders."
Happy says (5:13 PM):
"And what are his ideas?"
Shadowcaller says (5:13 PM):
"Silly things, not something you wish to hear."
Shadowcaller says (5:15 PM):
"…but where were we? He can be so distracting."
Happy says (5:16 PM):
"We've been told that the judging might not be impartial. But I'm sure you would judge fairly, wouldn't you?"
Shadowcaller says (5:16 PM):
"Jiagix wishes that Noad wins."
"…how did he know?"
Shadowcaller says (5:17 PM):
"I need to talk to you later on…"
Happy says (5:18 PM):
(do you want medium size chat, SC?)
Shadowcaller says (5:18 PM):
(GOing to bed soon…)
(So don't bother.)
Happy says (5:18 PM):
"But we're speaking now?" Hope says, confused
Shadowcaller says (5:18 PM):
"Huh? Oh, I was speaking to Jiagix."
Happy says (5:19 PM):
(oops, someoen else added you)
"Do you always do what Jiagix wishes?"
Shadowcaller says (5:19 PM):
"Krra… sometimes, somtimes not. I learned to argue against him."
Happy says (5:20 PM):
"I don't think you want to imprison a child in this place, do you?"
Wolfbane says (5:21 PM):
Goldie tries to look cute and innocent
Shadowcaller says (5:21 PM):
"Kraa… children… cut it." He stares at the wall again. "No, no, no, not this again."
Happy says (5:21 PM):
"And if we're forced to stay here, it would be very bad for this place."
Shadowcaller says (5:22 PM):
"Yes… Jiagix wishes that." He shakes his head "Ugh, what did you say?"
Happy says (5:23 PM):
"Do you like it here?"
Shadowcaller says (5:23 PM):
"Kraa, this place is wonderful, truly blessed, only here can you see what the world really is."
Shadowcaller says (5:24 PM):
"Some wishes to hide from what lies beneat, but I dive… yes I dive as deep as I dare."
Happy says (5:24 PM):
"And what does Jiagix think of it?"
Shadowcaller says (5:25 PM):
"He thinks… he wishes to return it. Yes, he wishes to dive deeper, beoynd the limit."
Happy says (5:26 PM):
"Jiagix wants Nodo to win. But what do you want?"
Shadowcaller says (5:27 PM):
"…I do not know… what did you say? A deal?" He turns to the wall yet again.
"No I can't say that to her, she's a lady."
"She would never accept that."
Shadowcaller says (5:28 PM):
He sigh, "He wants to trade something, what do you have?"
Shadowcaller says (5:30 PM):
"Or what dose she have?" He points at Goldie.
Happy says (5:30 PM):
"No. Goldie has nothing to trade."
Shadowcaller says (5:31 PM):
"kraa, Jiagix says she dose."
Happy says (5:31 PM):
"He should deal with me."
Wolfbane says (5:31 PM):
"What do I have then?"
Shadowcaller says (5:32 PM):
"Jiagix wishes… yes, asspects, something inner our outer of any of you."
Wolfbane says (5:32 PM):
?
Shadowcaller says (5:32 PM):
(???
)
Happy says (5:32 PM):
"Something inner or outer? What does that mean?"
Wolfbane says (5:32 PM):
sigh
"What?"
Shadowcaller says (5:33 PM):
"Bravery, courage, physical strenght or agility. He wishes to have parts… yes parts of something."
Shadowcaller says (5:34 PM):
*strength
Wolfbane says (5:35 PM):
"Would beauty work?"
Shadowcaller says (5:35 PM):
"Yes… yes. It would."
Happy says (5:35 PM):
"No, Goldie."
Wolfbane says (5:36 PM):
"But… its the only way."
Wolfbane says (5:37 PM):
She toys with one of her braids. "I'll be fine without it."
Shadowcaller says (5:38 PM):
"Kraa, beauty be in the eyes of the beholder yes?"
Happy says (5:38 PM):
"But you're so beautiful already. You're sure to get a strong mate when you get older."
"I couldn't bear for you to lose it."
Wolfbane says (5:38 PM):
She smiles weakly at Hope. "I'll be fine, I can ask Helena for it back if I need to."
Happy says (5:39 PM):
"It wouldn't be the same."
Wolfbane says (5:39 PM):
She looks down. "No… but its needed."
Shadowcaller says (5:41 PM):
"Kraa… can't see beauty. Blind…"
Wolfbane says (5:42 PM):
Before Hope can protest any more, she reaches up with her bone dagger and slices off her longest braid of fur. She offers it. "There, my beauty."
Shadowcaller says (5:43 PM):
"Hm? Jiagix?" He looks at the wall again. "No… he's angry… he wishes… no."
Shadowcaller says (5:45 PM):
"…sorry little one. Jiagix… he wishes…" His eyes goes wide "no! not that…" He pauses "Oh, like that… maybe."
Shadowcaller says (5:46 PM):
"Jiagix wishes to have your innocent."
Wolfbane says (5:46 PM):
O.O
(She isn't even 10!)
Shadowcaller says (5:47 PM):
(It's not what it sounds like)
Happy says (5:47 PM):
"He can't have that." Hope says. "Never mind. We'll be going."
She takes Goldie's paw and turns to go.
Shadowcaller says (5:47 PM):
"No wait, it… yes, it's not like that."
Wolfbane says (5:47 PM):
Goldie throws the braid down and goes with Hope.
(He better explain fast)
Shadowcaller says (5:47 PM):
"He wishes… yes, he wishes her to steal… or lie."
Wolfbane says (5:48 PM):
"I've already killed."
Shadowcaller says (5:48 PM):
"Why?"
"Why did you kill?"
Wolfbane says (5:49 PM):
"Ulrich asked me to kill him. So I did."
Shadowcaller says (5:49 PM):
"Mercy then? The head… yes."
Shadowcaller says (5:50 PM):
"Jiagix wishes you to do… ten things without any virtue."
"To do evil, only for evils sake… no, not big things, small, small…"
Happy says (5:51 PM):
(How is she supposed to do that when there's no one around to be evil to?)
Shadowcaller says (5:52 PM):
"He give you… yes, two months."
Happy says (5:52 PM):
"He can watch us when we're not here?"
Shadowcaller says (5:52 PM):
"He watches everyone…"
"All can seen from here."
Wolfbane says (5:56 PM):
Goldie walks up to the bird person and wrentches out a handful of feathers that show. "There, at least ten." She then kicks him in the shin. "Just to make sure."
Shadowcaller says (5:56 PM):
He screams and backs away. "…Kra.."
Shadowcaller says (5:57 PM):
(more like a bird "scream".)
Happy says (5:57 PM):
"Goldie!"
Hope tries to grab her and pull her back.
Wolfbane says (5:57 PM):
"Is that enough, or do I have to do more?"
Shadowcaller says (5:58 PM):
"…no, no, no. That was one." He raises one finger. "Ten different people."
Wolfbane says (5:58 PM):
Goldie growls. "You changed the deal then. You just said ten small acts."
Wolfbane says (5:59 PM):
"Or does that count as 2?" she flexes her claws. "I can do more."
Shadowcaller says (5:59 PM):
"Me? I can't…kraa… he wishes… he wishes ten small acts against ten different persons."
Wolfbane says (6:00 PM):
"I agreed to ten acts. Not ten acts against ten different people. I did my deal."
Shadowcaller says (6:00 PM):
He shakes his head "…Jiagix says it's void then."
Shadowcaller says (6:01 PM):
"Sorry, sorry…"
Happy says (6:02 PM):
"Never mind, Sligaroshi. We don't need a deal."
Hope picks up Goldie's braid from the floor and tries to lead her out."
Wolfbane says (6:02 PM):
Goldie leaves with her.
Shadowcaller says (6:03 PM):
Sligoroshi sits down on the floor as they do, clearly drained.
Happy says (6:03 PM):
"No… wait here."
She turns and returns to Sligaroshi, and tries to heal him.
Wolfbane says (6:04 PM):
Goldie waits.
Shadowcaller says (6:04 PM):
"Kraa.. thanks wonderful woman… I feel better…" He raises from the floor.
Happy says (6:05 PM):
"All we ask is that you judge fairly," Hope says softly.
Shadowcaller says (6:07 PM):
"…He says he can reco-consider." He pauses "I will try… but he wants… sins."
Happy says (6:09 PM):
"Doesn't this place have enough sins?"
Shadowcaller says (6:10 PM):
"He wants to have them outside… the things he demands from me… I can never leave this place."
Happy says (6:12 PM):
"What if I give him my memory, of the worst sin I ever committed?"
Shadowcaller says (6:12 PM):
"…he will give you dreams… yes dreams of sins. Is that acceptable?"
Shadowcaller says (6:14 PM):
"I'm so sorry… he demands so many other..kraa… things." He touches his forehead as appears to get a headace.
Happy says (6:14 PM):
"No. Dreams brought us to this place."
Shadowcaller says (6:15 PM):
"Normal dreams… he says he can… add it yes. He says he make sure you never return… yes, he can. He wanders in dreams he can stop it."
Happy says (6:17 PM):
"How many dreams?"
Shadowcaller says (6:18 PM):
"A number? Jiagix says until… no, it must be limited. You can't… I say ten dreams."
Shadowcaller says (6:19 PM):
"Yes, ten dreams."
Happy says (6:20 PM):
"Okay. Ten dreams. And they only affect me, not Goldie."
Shadowcaller says (6:20 PM):
"Yes. Jiagix is very happy."
"…no don't do that to her."
Shadowcaller says (6:21 PM):
He sigh "He licks… no, nevermind."
Shadowcaller says (6:22 PM):
"Jiagix will send you ten dreams and a fair trial."
Happy says (6:22 PM):
"What does he like?"
Shadowcaller says (6:23 PM):
"Jiagix? He likes you…"
(…now thats not creepy at all.)
Happy says (6:23 PM):
"But he'll judge the contest fairly?"
Shadowcaller says (6:24 PM):
"Yes, we will."
Happy says (6:24 PM):
"Thank you."
Hope goes back to Goldie.
Shadowcaller says (6:24 PM):
He makes a bow "I'm sorry for everything…"
Wolfbane says (6:24 PM):
When Hope sees her, she'll find Goldie quietly crying.
Shadowcaller says (6:24 PM):
"Farwell."
Happy says (6:25 PM):
Hope puts her arm around Goldie and nuzzles her, and guides her back to the chapel.
Shadowcaller says (6:25 PM):
(Hmm… can any of you make a narration for Fears? >.>)
Happy says (6:25 PM):
(how long has it been, IC?)
(um… maybe)
Shadowcaller says (6:26 PM):
(I just remembered it and I need to sleep…)
Wolfbane says (6:26 PM):
*sniff* "What did you do?"
Happy says (6:26 PM):
(okay, close the day, and the two of us can come up with something)
Happy says (6:27 PM):
"It's nothing. I just healed where you pulled out his feathers, so he promised to give us a fair trial."
Wolfbane says (6:29 PM):
Goldie hugs her tightly. "I didn't want to do it, but I thought that was what he wanted."
Happy says (6:29 PM):
"It was very brave of you. You have the spirit of a warrior."
Wolfbane says (6:34 PM):
Goldie chuckles lightly. "Miss Hope?"
Happy says (6:34 PM):
"Yes?"
Shadowcaller says (6:35 PM):
(Also, before I go, what did you like these two characters?
)
Wolfbane says (6:35 PM):
"Are you sure that was all you did? It seemed to take longer than you normally do when healing."
Happy says (6:36 PM):
"He's not exactly sane. I don't think Jiagrix is real. I think his mind is broken, and Jiagrix is another part of it."
Happy says (6:37 PM):
(More proof that you're the king of GMing )
Shadowcaller says (6:37 PM):
(>.>)
Shadowcaller says (6:38 PM):
(Any comments thought?)
Happy says (6:38 PM):
(wonderfully creepy)
Happy says (6:39 PM):
"I tried to see if I could repair his mind, but that's beyond my skills."
Shadowcaller says (6:39 PM):
(You don't want to know what Jiagix suggested…)
Wolfbane says (6:39 PM):
(I think I know <.<)
Shadowcaller says (6:40 PM):
(Really? And that is?^^)
Wolfbane says (6:40 PM):
(I think its rather obvious. He "likes" her)
Shadowcaller says (6:41 PM):
(He's a bird man… I doubt that would… work. *shudder*)
Wolfbane says (6:41 PM):
"Okay." she hugs her again. "We should probably find the girl then?"

[03:18] Happy: "Sure," Hope says. But she doesn't make any motion to move, and instead, sits their running her fingers through Goldie's mane.
[03:19] Wolfbane: Goldie leans against Hope's side. "Sorry for acting bad, I didn't want to."
[03:23] Happy: Hope kisses Goldie on the head. "It was a brave thing to do. Remember, survival is a virtue too."
[03:24] Wolfbane: "This makes it four times I've had someone go back on a deal." she sighs sadly.
[03:26] Happy: "Yeah, deals are only as good as the person you make them with."
[03:28] Wolfbane: "I understand Michi not understanding, but the fortune teller, now the birdman? Twice? Is it me?"
[03:29] Happy: "Let's find out. You make a deal with me, and see if I keep it."
[03:31] Wolfbane: She nuzzles closer and lays her head in Hope's lap. "I don't know what I'd want though." (I assume they are sitting somewhere)
[03:31] Happy: (yeah, in the chapel)
[03:32] Happy: "I'll take you hunting when we're home, and next on land. What will you deal me for that?"
[03:34] Wolfbane: She stays silent for a moment. "I don't know, I don't feel like I need to make deals or promises with you."
[03:35] Happy: "The deal is you have to make it home."
[03:35] Wolfbane: Goldie smiles. "I promise I will, no matter what."
[03:36] Happy: "Did you ever hear the story of how Promise got his name?"
[03:37] Wolfbane: She shakes her head.
[03:38] Happy: "We went hunting together. Promise killed the beast, but he lost a lot of blood. I gave him all the healing I could, but it wasn't enough."
[03:39] Happy: "Help was coming, but he was growing cold. I held onto him and begged him to hold on. And he said " will. I promise you.""
[03:40] Happy: "And he did."
[03:40] Happy: *I will
[03:41] Wolfbane: She smiles. "Thats good. I'm glad he did."
[03:41] Happy: "So I know you'll keep your promise too."
[03:42] Wolfbane: Goldie thinks for a moment and look up at Hope. "What was Promise's name before then?"
[03:42] Happy: Hope gives her an odd look. "How did you know he had a name before that?"
[03:43] Wolfbane: "Promise is much older than 16 when we get our first real name."
[03:44] Happy: "When we get back, you can ask Promise. It isn't my story to tell."
[03:46] Wolfbane: She looks at her oddly, a bit puzzled. "Okay, I'll remember to. Mind if I ask another question though?"
[03:46] Happy: "Of course I don't mind."
[03:47] Wolfbane: "How come you and Promise are mates?" she sounds curious.
[03:48] Happy: Hope laughs softly. "If you want to know what makes two people fall in love, you'd have to ask a bard. And I suspect even Aegnor couldn't find the words to explain it properly."
[03:48] Wolfbane: She giggles at the thought.
[03:49] Happy: "The song Aegnor wrote for Cessie? That's the way I feel about Promise too. And that's the way you'll feel one day for your mate."
[03:50] Wolfbane: She shifts a little. "It sounds nice."
[03:52] Happy: "But the love between mates isn't the only kind of love," Hope says. "I love you very much, Goldie."
[03:53] Wolfbane: "What do you mean?" she looks a bit puzzled.
[03:55] Happy: "I mean that I think you're special and I like being around you and I want to keep you safe and I wish you were my cub. All of those things wrapped together," Hope says.
[03:56] Wolfbane: Goldie is silent for a few minutes. "Really?"
[03:57] Happy: "Yes."
[03:57] Wolfbane: Goldie hugs her tightly. "Thank you, I wish it were like that too."
[03:59] Happy: Hope hugs her back just as tight, blinking back tears.
[04:02] Wolfbane: Goldie cries a bit herself. "I wish I could have met you earlier."
[04:03] Happy: "It's okay. We're together now."
[04:05] Wolfbane: "Thank you."
[04:08] Happy: Hope looks into her eyes and wipes her tears. "You ready to find that girl?"
[04:08] Wolfbane: Goldie smiles. "Okay."
[04:15] Happy: "We'll talk to her first. But if she's really insane, it might be kindest to kill her."
[04:15] Wolfbane: Goldie nods. "I understand. I had to do the same." she lowers her head a bit.
[04:20] Happy: "And it was the right thing to do. I'm very proud of you for finding the strength to do that," Hope says.
[04:21] Wolfbane: "I…I couldn't leave him like that. And I promised him I would."
[04:25] Happy: Hope gives her another kiss on the head. "You kept your deal with him then."
[04:28] Wolfbane: She looks up, still a bit sad. "Thats why I hate this place. I don't want someone to have to do that to me someday."
[04:32] Happy: "It won't happen. You made me a promise."
[04:36] Wolfbane: She nuzzles Hope's hands, wiping away a few tears. "I did."
[04:37] Happy: (stop there?)
[04:37] Wolfbane: sure
[04:38] Wolfbane: If SC had given us a definite amount of time for the amount spent on ship, I'd offer to RP on that
