New Dys 68

[00:04] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
He turns to you, his metalic form clicking a bit "Is there something? I have been informed that the guards like to speak with you…"

[00:05] Murska: Who turns?
[00:05] Shadowcaller: Ladrium, that servant of Artaris who spoke to A'lar when you entered.
[00:06] Murska: (Why do the guards want to speak with us?)
[00:06] Murska: (Promise's case?)
[00:06] Shadowcaller: (Ask?)
[00:07] Murska: (Never!)
[00:07] Murska: 'Yeah, there was the other reason we're here which A'lar didn't seem that interested in.'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "Like? They are waiting for you outside, I have informed them about your arrival here."
[00:09] Murska: 'Anyway, we've also been contacted by a group which would like Keiga to be freed.'
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Keiga?"
[00:10] Murska: 'A dragon spirit.'
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "I see… why do they wish to free this dragon spirit then? And why dose this concern us?"
[00:12] Murska: 'Because she's imprisoned in this city, and obviously they don't want her to be.'
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "I understand, most unfortunate, I'm afraid I know nothing of this trapped dragon however."
[00:14] Murska: 'The magical shield thing around the city makes it hard to communicate with spirits, but I'll try to, anyway.'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "Yes, it is to ward of evil spirits or "demons"."
[00:16] Shadowcaller: (Called "oni" in Hyrillian…)
[00:16] Murska: 'Anyway, said group is led by a rather radical… being. So I hope we can release her fast before they do something unwise.'
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "I of course hope no one gets harmed, but you should speak to the rulers of this city instead. They might know something about this dragon spirit."
[00:18] Murska: 'Right. Also, as I told A'lar, there are some rumours about the Worm being somewhere nearby. If you find out anything, we'd like to know.'
[00:20] Shadowcaller: "The worm? You told that to him? Hmm… while the truth might be the most idealistic opinion, sometimes the leader of a society must hide it for everyones best. A'lar won't hide it."
[00:21] Murska: 'Maybe, but I'm no leader and it's best someone knows it. Not to mention the information isn't that reliable.'
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "I will try to help you in any way I can. The healing of the temple will of course be free, if A'lar belive you are telling the truth, then so do I."
[00:24] Murska: He bows slightly. 'Thank you.'
[00:25] Shadowcaller: Ladrium makes an elegant bow back "It's an honor."
[00:27] Shadowcaller: Cessie bows as well, "It's a true honor being here."
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "I almost miss priestess-hood when I see all this…"
[00:29] Shadowcaller: She winks to Aegnor, "Almost."
[00:31] Murska: He smiles slightly. 'I'm sure.
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "Well… let's not keep those guards waiting."
[00:33] Shadowcaller: She goes towards the exit, glancing at the wounded at then at the group, reaching out her delicate hand to Aegnor "Shall we?"
[00:33] Murska: 'Right.'
[00:34] Murska: He takes it politely and bows again.
[00:34] Happy: Hope is still supporting Michicora
[00:34] Shadowcaller: She goes along, slowly.
[00:35] Shadowcaller: As Ladrium said, there is a group of guards waiting outside "So, you are the attacked ones eh?" says the guy who appears to be the leader or captain.
[00:35] Happy: "Yes," Hope says.
[00:36] Happy: It ought to be pretty obvious which of them was attacked.
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Well, if you can come with us to the guard station, we will settle all this. We are going to need your witnesses and so fourth."
[00:39] Happy: "I'm sorry, but my friend needs to rest. If you'd like to ask us questions, you can follow us to the inn."
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "This isn't exactly a request, by law you are supposed to follow us to the station. We can take care of your friend there, she is after all the key-witness."
[00:41] Happy: "Cessie, is this true? Can they really force us to do this?"
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "Uhh…" >.>
[00:42] Shadowcaller: "Basically yes."
[00:43] Murska: Aegnor sighs. 'So, I suppose we'll have a little detour.'
[00:43] Happy: "Then we'll wait here while you summon a carriage."
[00:44] Shadowcaller: "Sure, there is already one waiting for you."
[00:44] Happy: Then Hope helps Michi to the carriage.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: It's a black carriage, it looks like it have been used to transport prisoners. It have bars.
[00:46] Shadowcaller: /Simone?/
[00:46] Murska: Aegnor leads Cessie to it and helps her in.
[00:46] Shadowcaller: She goes up of course and the carriage starts moving.
[00:47] Shadowcaller: They arrive at one of the guard towers and are questioned about what exactly happend.
[00:47] Happy: /Yes?/
[00:48] Shadowcaller: /We are taking a slight detour, the guards wants to tell them what happend when Michicora got attacked./
[00:48] Shadowcaller: /Just so you know./
[00:49] Happy: /Okay/
[00:49] Happy: /Is Paak healed?/
[00:49] Shadowcaller: /Yeah… they are taking him in too however…/
[00:49] Shadowcaller: /He was very happy *smile*/
[00:50] Happy: (Why Paak? He wasn't there)
[00:50] Shadowcaller: (If he protest… he is a part of the group.)
[00:50] Shadowcaller: (He could say he wasn't there, otherwise they are going to assume he was.)
[00:51] Happy: He says that he wasn't with them at the time. But if they insist on taking him, he will go, of course.
[00:53] Shadowcaller: I guess he follows along then.
[00:54] Happy: So they insisted?
[00:55] Shadowcaller: Well, if he was with Simone, they would like to know his connections and so on.
[00:55] Shadowcaller: How they got away and if he saw anything.
[00:55] Happy: Er, how do they know Simone?
[00:56] Happy: Simone and Paak separated before the attack. They didn't 'get away'
[00:56] Shadowcaller: Hm, I guess they don't then. It's not like it really matters. It's just going to be a quick detour.
[00:57] Shadowcaller: You tell the guards exactly what happend?
[00:58] Murska: I see no reason to lie.
[00:58] Shadowcaller: After a few hours of questions, you are released.
[01:00] Happy: Hope keeps feeding spirit energy to Michicora.
[01:00] Happy: (a few hours? about an event that was over in minutes? O.o)
[01:00] Shadowcaller: (bureaucracy:P)
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (Lots of waiting, and by "few" I mean about 2 hours.)
[01:02] Murska: I suppose we head back to the inn.
[01:03] Happy: Hope insists on them providing a carriage for the return journey.
[01:03] Shadowcaller: I guess they do then.
[01:04] Shadowcaller: So… back at the inn.
[01:07] Shadowcaller: …
[01:07] Murska: hmm
[01:08] Murska: what else haven't we done yet?
[01:08] Shadowcaller: Oh, is Simone there?
[01:08] Happy: Yes
[01:09] Shadowcaller: (Helios) /I need to speak to you and your group…/ (You will get an invation to a dinner at the grey tower.)
[01:10] Happy: /Norholds people are everywhere/
[01:13] Shadowcaller: /Indeed they are, eager to start the purge I suppose. Sadly, I'm almost blind in this city, but I do know they haven't actually accepted it, they are just overly eager./
[01:13] Happy: /I tell them. But Cessie might not be eager to make a circle./
[01:13] Shadowcaller: /How so?/
[01:14] Happy: /It probably illegal or something./
[01:15] Shadowcaller: /She have done if before right? Why would it matter if we do it inside or outside the city?/
[01:17] Shadowcaller: /And I have crucial information about your mission…/
[01:17] Happy: *mental shrug* /You know how she is./
[01:17] Happy: /I tell them./
[01:18] Happy: She gets to the inn and waits for them to arrive.
[01:18] Murska: They arrive.
[01:18] Shadowcaller: They do
[01:19] Happy: Simone smiles at Paak, and then looks away, blushing just a little.
[01:19] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[01:20] Happy: Then a serious look at Aegnor. "Your favourite person want to talk to us."
[01:20] Murska: 'Oh great.' He rolls his eyes.
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "…right. Won't work that well in this city, remember Kuori?"
[01:21] Murska: 'Why can't he just talk to you?'
[01:22] Happy: "He say he have information for us."
[01:23] Murska: *sigh* 'Oh well.'
[01:24] Shadowcaller: "…I suppose I should summon him?" Cessie sigh
[01:26] Murska: 'I guess we have to. I'd like to see what he'd do if we didn't, however.'
[01:26] Happy: "He'd make vague threats that he say were not threats," Simone says.
[01:28] Murska: 'Probably.'
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Ugh… better stay away from Norholds servants then."
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "They ask these things you know?" >.>
[01:30] Murska: 'Yes, you have made a magic circle and no, you have not contacted Helios. After all, he contacted us.' Aegnor smiles.
[01:31] Shadowcaller: Cessie smiles back "I guess…"
[01:31] Shadowcaller: She makes a circle.
[01:32] Happy: "Helios," Simone says.
[01:32] Happy: (Michicora isn't here for this, I imagine?)
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[01:33] Shadowcaller: "Present."
[01:34] Shadowcaller: Shadows takes from in the ring
[01:35] Shadowcaller: "Greetings my adventures, I have valuable information that will lead you to the destruction of the worm… eventually."
[01:35] Happy: Simone rolls her eyes.
[01:35] Happy: Mote is there, right?
[01:36] Shadowcaller: S/he's in a corner, not saying much.
[01:37] Murska: 'Let's hear it.'
[01:37] Shadowcaller: "You are going to World End and I also wish, entierly for your sake, that you can prevent that purge of it."
[01:37] Murska: 'Entirely, eh.'
[01:37] Shadowcaller: "Yes, otherwise the cult will go back into hiding once again."
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "And if the worm is there, it will go back to hiding again."
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "There are two ways to World End, by ship or by land."
[01:39] Shadowcaller: "The best way is by land since you Promise have a mission nearby, I trust you accept this as your deals obliges you to do?"
[01:40] Shadowcaller: *deal
[01:40] Happy: (Promise isn't with them)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: (He isn't? Well then he tells them to tell Promis that.)
[01:41] Happy: (He stayed with Goldie, remember?)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: *Promise
[01:41] Murska: 'Tell everything first.'
[01:41] Shadowcaller: (Yeha, I do.)
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "Where should I start?"
[01:42] Murska: 'How should we know when we don't know what you have to tell?'
[01:43] Happy: (I maybe have another half hour worth of energy)
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "You can't assume what? Very well, you are going to get to World End, from there you will get some aid from collaborators of mine, you need to find out what this cult is up to and where they keep the worm. Or rather, the one whom controlls the worm."
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "Once you have found that out, you must contact me once again, this is very important you see? I will provide you with the tool that can destroy it."
[01:46] Murska: 'And then I assume we have to destroy it as well?'
[01:46] Murska: 'Which is completely separate from the first deal we made, incidentally.'
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "I have no capable servants in the area, and I can't handle this type of weapon myself see?"
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "But it's up to you, if you don't wish to destroy it, then don't, it's as easy as that."
[01:47] Murska: 'Okay.'
[01:48] Murska: 'So according to the deal, all we need is to go there and find out where it is.'
[01:48] Murska: 'Then we have some other stuff to do here in New Dys.'
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "You may deal with them, you aren't under a time limit here after all, I will assume you will deal with everything in time."
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "But, on your way to Worlds End you will pass by the city of East Gate, near it the Bandumo Jungel lies. Lately a creature of quite formidable power have been sighted there. Promise must kill this creature, and bring it's essence to me. This creature is responsible for many deaths in the region and is a constant danger to for example, one of the nearby wolfen/human tribes.
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "So I think it's very moralic justified."#
[01:52] Happy: "What kind of creature?" /Hope
[01:53] Murska: brb
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "It's a banished spirit, a Gothad… quite a colorful one to that."
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "Bloody creatures, like to cut themselves I understand."
[01:59] Shadowcaller: …
[02:01] Happy: "And how do you capture someone's essense? I don't think Promise knows how to do that."
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "Coming to that…" A clear orb appears in the ring "…took more effort then I had orginally appicipated, but there is is."
[02:02] Shadowcaller: /it is
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "Use that to capture the essence once it's dead."
[02:03] Shadowcaller: "They look very much like your nymphs, they are actually partly related to them. But don't mix them."
[02:04] Happy: "What powers does it have? The Gothad?"
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "It usually dance around, ripping apart itself and foe alike. Anyone facing it is usually running the hell away from there before the end."
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "They thrive on fear."
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Can make illussions, enter dreams… and so on."
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "Quite dangerous indeed, they don't even need to enter the town to kill it's inhabitants. You must now realize why the people around it lives in fear."
[02:10] Happy: "And once it is killed and the essence captured, Promise will be free of any debt to you?"
[02:10] Shadowcaller: "Exactly."
[02:11] Murska: 'Well, we'll relay it to him, though it's his call on whether he accepts or not.'
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "This is really the best task I could find for him nearby, if not for me then for the villagers and hunters living along the Bandumo Jungel."
[02:13] Shadowcaller: "But you understand now how this is going to work?"
[02:14] Murska: 'First we do whatever's needed here, then we go there, find out where the worm is and get the hell out before things get messy.'
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "If you can't prevent the purge, I promise it will get messy before you can even find the cult to begin with."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: "But yet again, it's up to you and your moralic compasses, I just provide the information and the tools."
[02:17] Murska: 'Well, I'm sure we can negotiate a little delay.'
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "Trust me, you do not wish the people in that city to be invaded by A'lar and his ilk, what gives them the right to kill more then half a cities population, as I assure you, they will."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: *?
[02:19] Murska: 'Nothing. What gives us the right to stop them?'
[02:19] Happy: "Of course we want to stop the purge."
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "Good, I'm only asking you do do your best, without risking your own well being nor the mission itself."
[02:21] Shadowcaller: "Is there anything else you wish to know?"
[02:21] Murska: 'I doubt anything you'd tell.'
[02:22] Shadowcaller: "Ah, poor shame. I guess I will see you later then. Don't forget to pick up the orb… or to not tell anyone what exactly your doing. WIll just complicate things in the end."
[02:23] Happy: "I'll ask you more questions as we think of them," Simone says.
[02:23] Shadowcaller: "Of course, I will provide the answers as always."
[02:24] Happy: "Since its your mission, I hope we don't have to pry them out of you," Simone smiles.
[02:25] Shadowcaller: "You won't, as long as you can justify what it has to do with it."
[02:26] Shadowcaller: (So, how much energy?)
[02:27] Shadowcaller: "I guess I must bid you farewell then. I will see you later…" The shadows fades away.
[02:30] Happy: (*is yawning*)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (yeah, the dinner tomorrow?)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Might be intresting for Simone;))
