Ruthan 6

You are at the passage, a wall of snow sorrunding you. Arim and Luna aren't there but are most likely looking for you for all you have heard. Derek and the Bronto have passed out and the only source of warmth you have right now is the heat Maelstrus is giving away. The snow walls are protectiong you a bit from the wind however, but it's still pretty cold.
You have been given two suggestions, either you go back to the capital or you continue towards Saron mountains.
Where the portal to Onyx sanctuary is located.
(Updated character list: http://whisperingworm.wikidot.com/characters )
(Huh…surprisingly long character list.)
(Well, most of it are NPC's.)
Sylvia is still sitting near the passed out Bronto.
"Wasn't this demon lord your king?"
(To Mael.)
"The one we are supposed to kill?"
"Possibly kill. Though it'd be better if we only got rid of the group that turned against him. That way it doesn't leave a power vacuum."
"But he wants to kill us. Even if we kill this group, it dosen't change anything."
"Or do you think we can talk him out of it or something?"
(I think from those two options our choice should be obvious. Sadly, I'm unconscious.)
"No, likely not. I'm just saying it'd be better if we were able to."
Sylvia shakes her head "Why do you want to redeeme yourself anyway?"
*redeem
"As I said, there are some things bigger than us. If Mithra and her allies get their way, more than just a few people, humans or demons, are in danger. And as I said, I rather like this realm. I don't want to see it go away."
"I've told you all of this before."
Sylvia sigh and looks away. "Whatever."
After quite a while Luna and Arim arrives, they both look pretty frozen. Arim goes directly up to Karen and hugs her, he looks rather upset.
The Bronto is slowly waking up some moments before they arrive.
Maelly will increase his heat output when the two arrive and stays near the Bronto.
She clings tightly to Arim. "You're okay, right?"
He nods "I was so worried Karen… I thought you were dead."
"I'm just a bit cold, thats all."
He feels rather cold.
Luna doesn't care about Derek. v.v
(Sure she does, but the one that controls her can only control one character at the moment.)
(WHich I hope the one that control Derek is able to understand.)
(Did you get away all that snow laying on top of the Bronto?)
(Maelly would have)
(Hmm… http://www.thrfeed.com/2009/10/game-of-thrones-cast-with-photos-.html )
The demon slowly raises from the ground, shaking it's fur a bit.
Luna is sitting near Derek, touching his cheek. "He's so cold…"
Sanna: "I suggest, yet again, that we move."

(assumedly I'm the only one who's following)
"But move where? Perssonally I think we need to head back and prepare oursselvess for the journey."
"I'm not following you the other way."
*is dying*
"We needed to wait for the Bronto to rest before moving on."
(Derek's arm was healed <.<)
"Derek is in trouble! We need to get him somewhere warm and safe."
Luna: "Derek will die if we don't move…"
"We will move now, I don't care if your beast die from exhuastion."
Maelstrus gives a full glare at her, and it's obvious that he's angered.
"Why don't you ssimply teleport Derek back ahead of uss?"
"Don't look at me at that way you creature, do you honestly care more about that thing…" She snarls back at him.
Arim: "Luna, calm down. We don't need this."
Luna throws a glare at her brother and then goes back to tending Derek. "Can't carry him, sight is limited."
"Sss…" Damon walks over and crouches down close to Derek as shadow flames spring into existence on each hand. "Thiss may help a bit. Get the girl over here, sshe can make them larger."
Sylvia appears a bit uneasy with the sudden anger in the group, but quietly nods and goes to make the fire a bit larger.

if I'm still alive once I come back, I'll start waking up
Luna glances back at Maelstrus and asks in false friendly voice "Sooo… how long until it have rested? A few hours maybe? Half a day?"
Does the Bronto look healthy enough to carry Derek?
(It just got up, I'm not sure. You decide.)
"It'll be able to carry him alone as long as we don't push it. Otherwise it /will/ have to rest for a while."
"Karen, help me carry him."
(@)
She does so.
And Derek is up on the Bronto.
"It can go faster if it only carries him… riiiight?" Luna asks maelstrus.
"Yes. That would have been the case anyways. I'll make sure I'm in the middle of the group anyways to try and keep everyone warm."
"Great, let's move."
Luna stays near Derek all the journey long. After you rested for the night after traveling a fair but, the weather becomes much better. It dosen't even take you two days to get back to Athun once again.
As you enter the main gates, you can smell the stench of death, in the main square, a man, a woman and two children have been put on pikes, there are a few soldiers guardin the macabre scene, keeping people away, not that thats really needed. Most people seems to aboid it anyway, just not beacuse of the smell.
Karen turns away to throw up.
*avoid
*guarding
Damon walks over to the nearest solider, "What happened here, ssir?"
The soldier gives him a odd look "Just showing what happens to those who betray the empire to demons. Bloody traitor among our own ranks."
Arim looks pretty sick as well and turns away.
"Among your own rankss? Nothing sseriouss I hope? Ah, but I'm ssure you can't tell me that anyway. Ssorry for assking." Damon turns and walks away.
He tries to support Karen in any way he can, offering her some of their water.
(What happen to the Bronto?)
(Doubt you could enter with it…)
(Shift into a horse? That way it'd still carry Derek)
(Okay.)
The soldier looks after him, then just shakes his head and goes back to looking bored.
Luna ignores the bodies and leads the Bronto past them.
Sanna have stayed outside the city, waiting for you.
Sylvia looks with disgust at the bodies, but isn't nearly as effected as Arim or Karen seems to be, yet she stays with them.
Damon looks at the group, then frowns and looks across at the city gates. "Perhapss I sshould sstay with our demon friend? I do not trusst her. Sshe may do ssomething sstupid."

"It would also keep you away from our host. It may be for the best."
Luna glances at him "Do whatever you like Damon, I'm taking Derek to a inn where he can rest."
(What's happened?)
(Your back in the city.)
"Good. Don't take too long." Damon turns and heads back out of the city.
(more specifically?)
Sanna is waiting back in a nearby forest.
Poor, poor Sanna, having to put up with Damon's company.
(Well, you went two days walking back, the weather was rather good the second day. Derek was the only one carried by the bronto. There were four corpses put on spikes near the main gate when you arrived. A man, a woman and two children.)
(Yeah, I read all that, I'd like to see what was posted between when I dropped and came back on. >.>)
Shadowcaller säger: Luna glances back at Maelstrus and asks in false friendly voice "Sooo… how long until it have rested? A few hours maybe? Half a day?" Wolfbane säger: Does the Bronto look healthy enough to carry Derek?
Damon walks over to Sanna and…well…just stops nearby. "I'm sstaying here to keep an eye on you for now."
Anyway, Derek woke up a bit over a day ago for the first time.
Wolfbane säger: "It'll be able to carry him alone as long as we don't push it. Otherwise it /will/ have to rest for a while." Shadowcaller säger: "Karen, help me carry him." Happy säger: She does so.
Shadowcaller säger: And Derek is up on the Bronto. "It can go faster if it only carries him… riiiight?" Luna asks maelstrus.
Wolfbane säger: "Yes. That would have been the case anyways. I'll make sure I'm in the middle of the group anyways to try and keep everyone warm." Shadowcaller säger: "Great, let's move."

Sanna: "If you find in nessecary." A pause. "Just want one of those amulets."
"Undersstand that ass long ass you are not like Maelsstruss, I will not trusst you. Demonss have done too many vile, heartlesss thingss to my people for me to be able to trusst any of you. Maelsstruss iss…an exception."
Sanna: "He is not." A pause "He did horrible things to me."
"Perhapss in the passt. From what I have sseen and heard, he hass sshown far greater a change than I ever thought posssible in a demon."
Her voice seem to turn to ice "Change…" A pause. "Where you there?"
A pause. "I asked, were you there?"
"Wass I there? Wass I there when?"
"Back at his keep." She says sweetly and pauses. "Did you know what he did to us there?"
"Not in any great deal of detail. I ssusspect I'm not going to like what I hear."
The rest of the group is going back to the inn I guess.
Karen is mostly concerned with her father.
"No, you are not." Pause. "He waited for us." Pause. "Many begged for mercy, or death."
"Waited for you? You went to hiss keep then?"
"I heard their screams." Pause. "No one wanted to."
"He waited for us to transform."
phone
"Transsform? Oh…I ssee."
How is Derek? His arm is healed.
"Yeeess…" Pause. "We turned." Pause."One by one, he showed us the first."
A pause. "Showed us what we would become."
(Hm, this SEU narration took a dark turn <.<)
"I ssee…" Damon hisses loudly, like a snake trying to scare something away…
Derek is tired and has a slight fever. He doesn't admit much but complains jokingly about his body feeling like that infernal stomped on it.
Luna is trying to get him in a better mood, taking care of anything he would ask for.
Along with Karen I guess.
Sanna: "I cried so much." Pause. "I was only a girl."
"Then the tears ran dry…"
That in itself helps enough. He isn't on a bad mood, but if they agree to him wanting to walk he'll slump soon.
(Why is there no large chat?)
(I left it due WH 40 K <.<)
"At leasst you cried when it happened…at leasst you didn't jusst accept it. Even crying iss ssome ssign of defiance."
Pause. "It shouldn't been allowed to happen."
Pause. "Stopped beliving." Pause. "Broke down."
"Nothing left of me."
Luna will put him in bed as soon as they arrive at the inn, buying the most expensive room.
"And you became…thiss? Did all of hiss…victimss act in a ssimilar way to you?"
Pause. "Before or after?"
'We should go ask the empress about the amulets.'
"Hmm. Well, perhapss other people would ssee all thiss is a bad thing. All it tellss me iss that his change iss even greater than I thought. He really hass improved." Damon doesn't really think about how Sanna may react to him saying that…
She dosen't reply, she appears incapable of showing any facial emotions.
Luna: "Was my idea too."
Elly har lämnat konversationen.
"I will be interessted to ssee how the amulet workss on you. I ssupect the amuletss could be of great usse to my people…"
Arim: "She might have more the one amulet…"
Sanna: "How so?"
"Yes. If she could give us an amulet for Sanna. But let's not take Damon with us."
'Agreed.' Derek smiles.
"You musst have noticed by now. We sshadow people are not ass emotionally unsstable as you and the otherss. Ssometimess however, we are perhapss a little too uninteressted in the world around uss. Demonss have corrupted ssome of my people…and they ssimply sstand by and do NOTHING TO SSTOP IT!" Damon slams his fist against a tree in anger…
Sanna raises an eyebrow, "Maybe you can imagine." A pause "How I feel then?"
Luna: "Not sure you should be walking thought…"
back
"We could hire a carriage, couldn't we?
Damon shakes his head, "Not really. Ssort of, I ssupposse…but not very well."
'Oh come on. I'm not going to die of a little stroll.' He grins. 'And you two can always carry me if I faint.'
SEU updated…
Luna sigh "Well, you do need to consider your health if you like to fight demons."
(heheh! With Hector gone, now Derek is the one getting beaten up!)
She turns to Karen, "Think he's okay?"
Sanna: "You should't talk then."
"You have been turned into a demon. I've never experienced anything that bad, sso I cannot imagine how you feel. I could ssay I feel ssorry for you, if that'd help."
*shouldn't
(Where is Maelly?)
(Inside the inn.)
(And what do you think of the narration?)
(It was great )
"There's enough walking inside the palace."
Luna: "And a lot of stairs…"
(WOlfy, please post the player list.)
Sanna: "Just want the amulet now."
(the full one?)
Pause. "Words won't help."
(sure)
(No, only reveal it bit by bit:P)
Damon nods, "I undersstand. What about afterwardss? What do you intend to do once you're back normal?" as he talks he starts breaking branches off some of the trees. He has no idea how long they're going to be waiting for, so a fire seems like a good idea…
"Die." pause "Or maybe something else." Pause. "We'll see."
"Death…why death? Why bother at all? If you're going to usse the amulet…usse it to give yoursself a life once more."
"Can't die as a demon."
'Oh come on.'
(Sanna isn't there.)
(They are outside the city.)
"Oh. Really?" That doesn't go down well with Damon. He has a bone to pick with a certain demon. The idea that said demon cannot die is…not a pleasant one. "Iss it abssolutely impossible?"
"Unless eaten by a dragon." pause "Or burned by the burning light."
"But you need a lot." Pause "For the second."
Damon finishes with his word collecting and starts piling the wood up. "Do you need to eat ass a demon?"
"Sometimes." Sanna replies, staring blankly at some nearby trees.
"What ssort of thingss do you demonss eat then?"
"Souls." Pause. "Normal food…" she shrugs.
(As the other groups isn't paying attention, I think I shall sleep now <.<)
*group
(Oh and before I go, check what just entered structured… http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143751 .)
(Aww…I was enjoying Damon's little conversation. First time he's managed to talk with someone without them grumbling at him!)
(Or worse…)
(Well, we can continue tomorrow.)
(*pokes others vengefully*)
"Please?"
(alright. Sorry, I've just been a bit busy and Maelly has nothing really to say)
"I don't want you to overdo it.
