New Dys 80

[23:27] Shadowcaller: Did he ever go to black forge? (I doubt you remember it, but it was a place mentioned by a beggar.)
[23:30] Murska: uh, he would then, yeah :P
[23:30] Murska: I forgot the whole thing
[23:31] Shadowcaller: Indeed… he just goes there alone then?
[23:31] Murska: when and why was it again? »
[23:32] Shadowcaller: Well, the beggar said intresting things were going on there at nights, it was mentioned when he gave the beggar a coin
[23:33] Murska: right
[23:33] Murska: well, he scouts the place out at day first
[23:33] Murska: to look at it
[23:33] Murska: then goes there at night carefully
[23:35] Shadowcaller: It looks innocent enough from the outside, a quite heavy door, away from everything else. It looks like it's a forge.
[23:35] Murska: orly? :P
[23:35] Shadowcaller: Well, some places…
[23:36] Shadowcaller: So he goes there alone then?
[23:36] Murska: well, who else is he gonna take? :P
[23:37] Murska: can he get in during the day?
[23:37] Shadowcaller: It's closed
[23:37] Murska: any windows or whatever to sneak in through?
[23:38] Shadowcaller: There are windows but they are pretty heavy sealed
[23:38] Shadowcaller: bars and stuff
[23:39] Murska: and no other secrit entrances noticeable?
[23:39] Shadowcaller: There is another doorr on the backside, but it's also sealed.
[23:41] Shadowcaller: No luck getting in unless he smashes open the door/window or something
[23:42] Murska: oky
[23:42] Murska: well then at night he watches it from a distance to see anything strange
[23:44] Shadowcaller: Well, two torches are lit on each side of the main door, there are people going into from time to time, mostly hodded types.
[23:44] Murska: anyone coming out?
[23:45] Shadowcaller: How long is he standing there?
[23:45] Murska: For a while. And not really standing as much as wandering around.
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Well, a guy leaves and throws up just outside the main door.
[23:47] Murska: Naib decides to follow him for a while and then walk up to him once they're farther
[23:49] Shadowcaller: He sits down on the ground, leaning against the wall of the building. You can hardly see him in the dark.
[23:49] Murska: The building? As in the forge?
[23:49] Shadowcaller: Yes
[23:50] Murska: then he just walks past him, trying to get a glimpse of what he looks like
[23:51] Shadowcaller: He got a dirty unkept beard, blue eyes, raven hair, His eyes are closed and he is breathing slowly, he looks to be around 40.
[23:52] Murska: (Spice addiction!)
[23:52] Murska: 'Hey.'
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "Uhh…"
[23:53] Shadowcaller: He squirms a bit, you aren't sure if he really heard you.
[23:54] Murska: He repeats, louder.
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "What? Can't you leave a guy alone will ya? Trying to sleep here…"
[23:55] Shadowcaller: He closes his eyes again.
[23:55] Murska: How does he sound?
[23:55] Shadowcaller: Drunk, tired, he sludders.
[23:55] Murska: Naib leaves quietly.
[23:56] Murska: He returns to somewhere near the main door to keep an eye on it.
[23:57] Shadowcaller: He can hear music inside, piano.
[23:58] Murska: He tries to sneak a look inside from a window
[00:00] Shadowcaller: (Man, he's really careful >.>) There is whole group of people there, it looks quite different from what it did during the day. A pile of cushions have been placed around the room, people are sitting around three tables that weren't there before, playing cards and drinking. Alchol is being served and it looks like a few people are trading and playing dice.
[00:01] Murska: (Hey, a careful person would never even be there :P)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: There is a couple dancing to the music, a very sparesly dressed girl is standing close to the stairs.
[00:01] Shadowcaller: *sparsly
[00:02] Murska: After confirming his suspicions and making sure it isn't something he doesn't want to get involved in he shrugs and tries the main entrance. :P
[00:03] Shadowcaller: Right, he enters. Some type of guard nods at him "First time?"
[00:03] Murska: 'Yup.'
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Don't go tell anyone about this place, 'kay?"
[00:04] Murska: 'I won't. Gotta be some place with something goin' on around here.'
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "Good, enjoy your time…" The guard goes back to staring at the door, taking a sip from a bottle he held.
[00:07] Murska: He probably does but he also keeps his ears open and tries to make some contacts while he's there.
[00:11] Shadowcaller: Well, there is a rather well dressed man in red, white and blue clothes that appears to be selling things. He dosen't have a visible inventory, but people do seem to buy things from him regardless. There is also a dark skinned man in a green tuxedo selling drinks. The lightly dressed girl tries to make eye contact with him.
[00:12] Murska: what kind of things are they buying?
[00:13] Shadowcaller: They aren't really "buying" anything except small contracts or something like that.
[00:13] Murska: 'kay
[00:13] Murska: He buys a drink and sees if he can join in some game he knows the rules of
[00:17] Shadowcaller: They appears to be playing about money, it's quite late into the game so the stakes are quite high. One of the Conestants, Humbert is betting his fortuonue on this.
[00:17] Shadowcaller: *fortune
[00:17] Shadowcaller: They mention a place called "the arena."
[00:18] Murska: How high? He's filthy rich :P
[00:19] Shadowcaller: Up to 3 gold, which is the highest possible bet.
[00:19] Murska: Well that's probably a bit more than he's going to bet on it while he's still sober.
[00:21] Shadowcaller: This "arena" appears to be some type of fighting place for animals and people.
[00:22] Shadowcaller: The subject changes to women and which types they prefere.
[00:22] Shadowcaller: And so on.. they sound quite drunk
[00:23] Shadowcaller: (or maybe just tipsy in some cases.)
[00:23] Murska: He listens and joins the conversation every once in a while watching the game, unless there happens to be a round with lower bets.
[00:23] Shadowcaller: One of them, Hendry, wins. He celebrates by buying everyone a drink.
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Then he goes off the the merchant, mentioning he would buy something.
[00:25] Shadowcaller: The other continue playing, but now with lower bets.
[00:26] Murska: He starts joining in then. Playing rather cautious. He asks more about the Arena later
[00:27] Shadowcaller: They play on, everyone seems to win and lose a bit, they money appears to go round and round the table.
[00:28] Shadowcaller: Eventually, the girl goes to one of the players and makes him leave with her "Later boys…"
[00:30] Shadowcaller: He leaves with her in time for Hendry to return. The mood is quite good and the players start to play higher bets.
[00:30] Murska: Naib keeps an eye out for anyone cheating and still plays cautiously without adding much money on the table from his side.
[00:31] Shadowcaller: They play rather frivolously, one of them isn't even keeping his cards wholly to himself.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: Eventually, his luck starts to turn a bit and his winnings are now greater then his loses.
[00:32] Murska: The drunker they are, the easier it is to win
[00:35] Shadowcaller: Suddenly the door opens again and heavely weiled man steps inside. He silently looks around and then takes the empty seat. The other look strangely at him, this man has most likely not been here before.
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Ss… so what are you playing for? Money? Got plenty." Naib might notice how a cat jumps up on the cooling forge.
[00:38] Shadowcaller: It stares at him, it most likely entered with the veiled stranger.
[00:39] Murska: (oh dear, not this guy)
[00:40] Shadowcaller: (hehe.)
[00:40] Shadowcaller: The other players nods at him and deals him a hand.
[00:41] Shadowcaller: The cat leaves the forge and makes it way towards the players.
[00:41] Murska: Naib keeps an even closer eye on this guy since he's sober.
[00:42] Murska: And doesn't show his cards to the cat. :P
[00:43] Shadowcaller: Leaping up on the chair of one of the players that don't even appear to notice it.
[00:44] Shadowcaller: Cards are dealt and the stranger appears to know his way around the cards.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: "Sso, what is there to do here then eh? That arm guard of yours, looks quite valuable."
[00:45] Murska: 'It is.'
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "A gift perhaps?"
[00:47] Murska: 'Actually no.'
[00:47] Shadowcaller: The cat leaps to another players chair "Made it yourself?"
[00:48] Murska: He laughs. 'I'm no wizard.' (He's keeping his cards like Hold'Em players do, face down on the table.
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "Ah, so it's magical then? Intresting…"
[00:49] Shadowcaller: The stranger is holding his cards in a similar way.
[00:50] Shadowcaller: The other players seems quite intrested when he mentions it's magical.
[00:50] Murska: 'Mundanely. Keeps itself clean and is harder to damage. Still darned expensive though.'
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "Yes, heard about such items going around here. Mainly from when this city were ruled by the Neverath bloodline of mages." The other players don't really care what he is talking about.
[00:53] Murska: 'Well, this one isn't from around here.'
[00:54] Shadowcaller: "Where from then?"
[00:55] Murska: 'A city near the Desert. Anyway, let's keep playing.'
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "Yess…"
[00:56] Shadowcaller: They keep playing and almost every game appears to be either be won by you or the stranger.
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "What do you say we bet something else then money eh?"
[00:58] Murska: 'Hm. What do you have in mind?'
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "Well, I have happend to come into the possesion of a magical statue."
[01:01] Murska: 'I'm afraid if you're going to suggest I bet the armguard, I can't do that.'
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "Something else then eh? I have no use for it any longer."
[01:03] Murska: 'Well, what does it do?'
[01:03] Shadowcaller: "It's capable of granting it's owner one limited wish."
[01:04] Murska: 'And you've used yours already?'
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "Yeah."
[01:05] Murska: 'What does 'limited' wish mean then?'
[01:05] Murska: (is this /the/ statue? :P)
[01:07] Shadowcaller: "Ugh, itss… well the thing you wish for can't too far away, nor can it be under magical protection. Thats the limts I heard off, but I'm sure there are others…"
[01:07] Shadowcaller: (who knows?:P)
[01:08] Murska: 'So, something useless for you but pretty neat for me.' He grins.
[01:08] Murska: (Now if he had something to bet…)
[01:09] Shadowcaller: "Exactly."
[01:09] Shadowcaller: He is sure the vielded stranger grins back.
[01:10] Shadowcaller: It's pretty clear, despite his clothes, that his shape isn't really human.
[01:10] Murska: (Now if only I remembered who got the magical items from the guy whose head Naib crushed)
[01:11] Shadowcaller: (That golden rod…)
[01:11] Shadowcaller: (ring of invisibility.)
[01:11] Murska: (That one's sorta useful, so I doubt Naib'd have it :P)
[01:11] Murska: (Suroshian had that ring, I think
[01:11] Murska: (pre-death)
[01:11] Shadowcaller: (magic chainmail armor.)
[01:12] Murska: (Like he'd have that :P)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (Well, you asked and I answered >.>)
[01:12] Murska: (I asked 'who has them')
[01:13] Murska: 'Well, I guess you'd want magical stuff for magical stuff.'
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "Or something of equal value, yes."
[01:15] Murska: 'Well, items with permanent enchantments are much more valuable than single-use ones. Which I've learnt by experience.' He glances at the armguard. 'I got a ring which makes you invisible if you stand still.'
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "Really? That sounds useful…"
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "Willing to bet it?"
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "I'll bet my statue."
[01:16] Murska: 'Or we could just make a trade if we want to be cautious.' He smiles. 'I'm up for either.'
[01:17] Shadowcaller: He glances at the cat, "Hm, first show me that your ring works."
[01:18] Murska: 'Hey, it's a valuable-looking ring which is also permanently magical. I'm not keeping it in my pocket while I'm walking around town, no matter how many guards there are.'
[01:18] Murska: 'I could go fetch it. How're you going to show me the statue works?'
[01:19] Murska: (hai happy)
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "I can talk with it if you wish."
[01:19] Shadowcaller: (Things kind of happend while you were away >.>)
[01:19] Murska: 'Talk? With a statue?'
[01:19] Shadowcaller: "Yes, it's a spirit inside it."
[01:20] Murska: 'Spirit magic. Should've known, with the properties. But how can I know you're telling the truth?'
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "Well, ask it?"
[01:21] Murska: 'I thought only spiritspeakers can talk to spirits? And they can lie too.'
[01:22] Shadowcaller: "The statue makes it possible for everyone to speak to it, I guess."
[01:23] Murska: 'Well, I suppose.'
[01:24] Shadowcaller: "So are you getting your ring?"
[01:25] Murska: 'Sure. Won't be long.'
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "Oh, can I get your name first?"
[01:26] Murska: 'Naib. Yours?'
[01:26] Shadowcaller: "Just call me Dex."
[01:26] Murska: 'Right. See you soon, Dex.' He heads out.
[01:26] Murska: (Now would totally be a good time to bump into Aegnor :P)
[01:26] Murska: (
[01:26] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[01:27] Murska: ('weird guy with a cat, some spirit thing…')
[01:27] Murska: ('WHAT?)
[01:27] Shadowcaller: (I can imagine^^)
[01:28] Murska: (I suppose nothing special happens, however?)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: (Uh, he goes to the inn where the party is?)
[01:29] Shadowcaller: (Or his own inn?)
[01:29] Murska: (For his own stuff? His own inn, obviously :P)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: (Right, nothing special then… or that depends on timeline.)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: (Also, happy, you should read the log >.>)
[01:30] Murska: (laaaaaate evening/night)
[01:30] Murska: (And probably before the most recent events)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: (Okay, nothing special then.)
[01:31] Shadowcaller: He returns with the ring.
[01:32] Happy [8]: *just caught up on this one, and the Miranda one*
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (What would Simone have done?)
[01:32] Murska: He waves and walks to the table. Then he puts it on with flashy movements and goes still, turning invisible.
[01:32] Murska: Then he takes it off and bows.
[01:33] Shadowcaller: The people inside black forge applaudes, astonished by this magical feat of wonder taking place before their eyes.
[01:35] Shadowcaller: Dex dosen't applaud however "Impressive, but maybe we should find a more private corner to make the deal in?"
[01:35] Murska: 'Your call.'
[01:36] Shadowcaller: "very well." He goes off into a small table in the corner that Naib didn't see from the window.
[01:36] Murska: He follows.
[01:37] Shadowcaller: He sits down, the cat jumps up on the table and starts washing itself.
[01:38] Shadowcaller: He takes up a green staue that looks like a grinning cat. "There you are, ask it something."
[01:38] Murska: 'Just like this?'
[01:39] Shadowcaller: "Sure, why not?"
[01:41] Murska: 'Um. What's your name?' He feels a bit silly talking to a statue, despite what he's seen.
[01:41] Shadowcaller: "Kaos!" The statue shouts our loudly.
[01:42] Murska: 'Odd name.'
[01:42] Shadowcaller: "Not as odd as "krahjfhehri"."
[01:42] Murska: 'You have a point there.'
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "What do you want? A girl? Money? A magic sword?"
[01:43] Shadowcaller: Dex takes down the statue again.
[01:44] Shadowcaller: "First I want the ring."
[01:44] Murska: 'Both on the table and we take them at the same time?'
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "Why not?"
[01:45] Shadowcaller: He places the statue turned against naib on the table.
[01:46] Murska: 'Oh, and none of those, please.' He smiles at the statue and places the ring next to it.
[01:47] Shadowcaller: Dex takes the ring as naib grabs the statue. "Perfect…"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, I should leave you alone with your wish, I want to play some more "3 swords"…" (the name of the card game.)
[01:48] Shadowcaller: He leaves.
[01:48] Shadowcaller: The cat follows him.
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "What then? what, what, what?" The statue replies.
[01:49] Murska: Naib looks at where he goes first. 'I'm not quite sure yet. Why?'
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "Beacuse wishes are fun!"
[01:50] Murska: 'Hm. What are the limitations then?'
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "Mortals are fun, all time being stuck in this… get me working…"
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "Oh, limations are hard to place in words, they are crazy!"
[01:51] Murska: Naib keeps the statue in his hand and starts walking outside the building.
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "Like… not too far away, not magical… not too powerful… not more wishes… stuff like that."
[01:52] Murska: 'Not magical nor too powerful? What constitutes a poweful nonmagical item?'
[01:53] Shadowcaller: "By "not magical" I mean I can't effect things that are protected by magic or spirit energy."
[01:53] Murska: 'Ah.'
[01:54] Murska: 'You know, I have a few friends who'd probably also like wishes. But myself, maybe it's best to try it out…' He grins. 'And since we're outside, you don't think you could return to me that ring?'
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "If they want have wishes, they need to buy me first! Nothing for free!… but yeah, ring, you sure?"
[01:55] Shadowcaller: "Only one wish!"
[01:56] Murska: 'Hey, I won't force too high a price on friends.'
[01:56] Murska: 'And yeah, why save up something you might not get a better chance at? Permanent effects are really pricey.'
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "Okay, okay… return the ring to you eh?!"
[01:58] Shadowcaller: (How would Simone have reacted?)
[01:59] Murska: (more like 'how will Simone react')
[01:59] Shadowcaller: (yeah…)
[01:59] Murska: 'Yep.'
[01:59] Happy [8]: (to what?)
[02:00] Murska: (To the woman controlling the worm reveal)
[02:01] Shadowcaller: "Your wish…" He can feel something on his tounge.
[02:01] Murska: He spits something off his tongue and onto his hand, I suppose
[02:01] Shadowcaller: It's the ring.
[02:01] Happy [8]: (I've gotten all confused about what's going on with the worms and stuff)
[02:02] Shadowcaller: Drenced in his own saliva.
[02:02] Shadowcaller: (Confused in what way?)
[02:02] Murska: (this plot is quite far from 'zombie army vs. innocent village, kill evil people' thing :P)
[02:03] Happy [8]: (I can't keep the details straight. Maybe you and me can have an ooc conversation about it tomorrow morning or something)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (How so? >.>)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (Err…sure.)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (The first thing was to Murska.)
[02:04] Happy [8]: (just a synopsis of everything.)
[02:04] Murska: (Well, for one we don't know who's evil)
[02:04] Murska: 'Great.' He starts heading for his own inn-room for the night.
[02:04] Murska: (Interesting stuff might happen)
[02:05] Murska: (when Dex tracks down Naib who's just talking with Aegnor)
[02:05] Murska: (:P)
[02:05] Shadowcaller: (hehe… I think he will just send the cat thought;))
[02:06] Shadowcaller: (And naibs wish was a bit strange really.)
[02:06] Murska: (starcraft)
[02:06] Murska: (He didn't want to walk away and find out he was cheated)
[02:07] Murska: (And considering their group has like 8 more wishes total)
[02:09] Shadowcaller: (Perhaps…)
