Ruthan 7

Oh well. The guard captain, named Ithan by the way, recognize you and let you inside. You go past the fully armored soliders throught the corridor of dragon bone once again (Mael can't go inside of course) until you reach the hall of angels where Jillian is waiting for you. "Ah, you must be the children right?" She says, her voice lacks that tone of supreme arrogance.
"Excuse my rather forward question, but we are at war after all. Politiness should be kept among the nobles." She chuckles and pours herself up a glas of wine. "Not that this country have anything close to a noble class."
'Indeed.'
She raises an eyebrow, and half-smiles "Well? Yes or no? I only got a brief description of you." She takes a small sip of the wine.
'Yes, of course you're correct.'
She smiles and raises the glas in a toast. "Congratulations are in order then yes? Allow me to introduce myself, I am Zezana, Sifiera, the dragon queen's stand in."
(anyone else wish to say anything?)
Karen curtseys.
Maelly isn't there
Zezana nods polietely in Karen's direction and Sylvia's as she follow the gesture. Luna just bows as she dosen't have any dress, Arim does what his sister does.
"I'm sure you must have a great deal of questions, but Sifiera is… elsewhere at the moment."
(sorry… electricians are busy)
"I will answer any I can on her behalf however."
bah… shouldn't have drank a glass of water before tghey got here. they're working right outside the bathroom >.<
brb
Zezana relaxes in the throne, taking another sip of wine.
There is magic about her, just like with Sifiera.
"We do have a request to make."
"Is that so? Well, let's hear it then."
(Brrr, it's a snow storm out there.)
"We found one of the women who had been corrupted into a demon. She would like to become human again, if an amulet were available."
"A corrupted woman? You mean one of the sisters? I suggest you tell me what happen (In the form of two words! We do.) before I do anything."
back
(that does not make any sense)
(Huh?)
(I'm supposed to say 'we do' to tell her what happened??)
(Well… in a short form.)
We do.
Oh… you mean ooc
(Yeah^^)
"Hmm… thats not good news." Zezana puts the wine glass away and raises up frown the thrown, frowning "Then the demons must know you are here by now."
'Obviously.'
"Obviously?"
"We had hoped you could have wiped out all the demons so your presence would be undetected."
"But now this revenant have seen you and is most likely reporting back to the other sisters…" She says thoughtfully.
'What do you think we are?' He chuckles. 'We can't wipe out much of anything. Barely survived ourselves.'
"I had hoped that Sifiera would do it actually, once you had secrured the egg. That you even did that… it's all her fault."
"But she's a primadonna, I can't control her much."
"In any case, by showing yourself this close to the portal actually have an advantage."
"She's been with us the whole time. She hasn't been communicating with other demons. And she wants to be human again."
Zezana nods "Yes, yes… I suppose I can't grant you that on the behalf on the dragon queen. That ought to keep at least one demon in check at least."
*can
'Not to mention the amulets are a strong psychological weapon.'
"You are quite correct there child. But in any case, you presense here will force the traitors among Onyx to make their move, very soon…"
"If we only had a way to contact them…"
"Didn't you have some Onyx demon enslaved?"
'Yes.'
"He found some more corruption amulets, but we don't know how to destroy them."
"Tell him to try to contact Mithra… oh?"
"Well, just leave them here and we will deal with them."
"Mithra is the only name we have, she is one of the traitors and we need to let her know you are coming."
"So she knows when to strike."
"We need exact time here."
Karen relays this to Maelstrus
He sighs. /It's *Mithra* who is the problem! Why does no one understand this? Even though he's in power, Onyx is the weak one./
Because we don't care who's in power, only that Onyx is dead
At least his Demon armies are under control…
/If you remove him, everything he has control over, is suddenly free. Including the full extent of his armies. What do you think the first thing they'll do is?/
kill each other
/You'd better tell all this to Derek/
/I've been telling you *all* this but you won't listen./ (honestly, he has. He's said it at least twice in front of the group)
(And why would they kill each other when right on the other side of a portal is unclaimed land?)
(because they're mindless)
(Not to mention slaves, money and power)
(Not all demons are)
(but everyone in an army is)
(But they'd be controlled by their commanders)
(but the commanders only have tiny parts of the army each)
(= fight each other)
THey have no reason to fight each other!
They have no reason to do anything!
They have no needs!
(ugh, nevermind, I'm getting food before I get a headache)
(Yeah <.<)
'Can you explain the plan to us aswell?'
"Of course, I'm coming to that…"
"You must get in position, as close you can to the portal without the demons detecting you."
"Then Sifiera, *hopefully* awaiting your signal before she do anything, will attack the portal and you will get into it, in the confusion."
"At the same time, the traitors will strike inside the portal and together you will strik against Onyx."
*strike
*together
'And then how do we handle the traitors?'
"Thats the tricky part, since we need to trust one of our other allies…"
"In theory, once Onyx have fallen, the sanctuary's walls will fall and Maruk is supposed to provide aid at that point."
*marduk
"Sadly, you just have to trust him I guess."
'Ouch. What are his motives?'
"He have been a bit vague about that part, but out chapter master… i'll explain that later… trust him. Onyx's death is supposed to be the first part of a greater plan."
'I don't like the sound of that. Anyway, how are we going to kill Onyx in the first place?'
"Ah, well he is not the first demon sultan to die. But from all accounts, sticking a piece of silver into his brain should be as fathal as for any demon."
"We don't have any intelligence of Onyx's true form, he have only showed himself in illusions for some reason."
'So to summarize, the plan is to sneak in, bash the sultan until it stops moving and then hope we get rescued?'
Zezena smiles nervously "Yes… basically. I know, it's not the best plan, but there aren't many other options at the moment."
'Sounds pretty much up to par for this trip then.'
"Marduk did mention he needed you for the second part."
"But I'm not even sure what that means."
'Probably nothing good. I'll assume it's for a blood-sacrifice.'
She sigh, "We can try to call on the servants of the burning light I guess…"
"Once the sanctuary have fallen, any demon should be able to transport inside it."
"What about Mithra?"
"She is going to try to assume control over Onyx's legions once he is dead I guess…"
(So you're leaving the backstabbing bitch in power? <.<)
"Or something like that. Would be good if you killed her too and any other demons inside that place."
'I really hope by 'you' you're meaning 'the reinforcements'.'
"But remember, once you enter, she's your ally, you need her and whatever allies she have managed to get under her sway to kill Onyx."
(Is Karen going to tell them what he said? >.> )
'Mm.'
(@)
"Maelstrus says… <stuff>"
(sorry… am fading)
*hugs*
"Well… we can only hope that those demons will just kill themselves."
"That doesn't sound like a viable plan."
"No, but what else can we do? Spare the demon that is trying to kill you?"
"Mithra is at least not intrested in that."
(I take it she is relaying all this back?)
(I guess.)
/She's a *DECIEVER*. As soon as Onyx is out of the way, she'll just kill all of us anyways simply because we're of no more use./
(she is)
(Kinda like him)
'A grand plan indeed, one well-practiced on many battlefields. Wish that the enemy commits suicide.'
/The first thing she'd do once in power is make sure no one can threaten her. That's *us*. Then, she'll expand her new domain. After all, she'd have to be greater than Onyx was./
Once Derek hears this: 'Well then, let's not let her into power. Simple as that.'
/How? You'd have to kill her after facing Onyx's elite guard and Onyx himself. I kind out doubt you'll be in good shape afterwards./
Wolfbane har lagts till i konversationen.

what'd you see?

Aegnor sanoo: 'So we get her to do all the work and then we call in the Baelrons and whatever Mardu( c)k has.'

SC dropped again…
Yes, I did <.<
Wolfbane säger: /How? You'd have to kill her after facing Onyx's elite guard and Onyx himself. I kind out doubt you'll be in good shape afterwards./
Wolfbane says (11:31 AM): Aegnor says (11:29 AM): 'So we get her to do all the work and then we call in the Baelrons and whatever Mardu( c)k has.'
/She *can't* do all the work. She can't carry silver like you can. And us Baelrons can only do so much./
.
Go shoot your internet for me
Elly har lagts till i konversationen.

Wolfbane says (11:45 AM): /She *can't* do all the work. She can't carry silver like you can. And us Baelrons can only do so much./ Aegnor says (11:47 AM): 'So there's no alternatives. Tell him to stop whining in that case, it doesn't do any good.'

Back
Maelstrus shuts up. If the mortal wanted to kill himself in stupidity, then it was his own fault.
(Oh, hi Elly.)
Hai.
Zazana looks at Derek, "In any case, Sifiera is coming back in a few days. You should get yourself ready."
(Maelly tried to convince them that Onyx isn't the real threat again. It was his last try. He won't bother any more as they being an idiot about it)
'All right.'
"Aks me if you need anything else… oh, if you pass the main gate, can you please tell the guard to bury those corpses? It's hardly civil to keep them there."
*ask
'What happened anyway?'
Elly har lämnat konversationen.
.
She sigh "When Sifiera passed by here, she demanded to arrest a man and his family for high treachery and show an example."
'What'd they do?'
"The man had planned to kill her with some type of knife."
'Ah right, him.'
"The rest of the family… that was just for the example I guess."
'Mhm. So, when can we expect such an amulet?'
"I have it delivered to you as soon as possible."
"Is there anything else you need?"
"We should… maybe… one for Karen's mother." Arim says quietly.
Zezera: "So… how many amulets do you want? We don't have a lot of them I'm afraid."
Karen squeezes Arim's hand.
(and i'm going to have a bath and see if it helps my sore back. brb)
I like that plan…
*wave*
'Well, the best thing is if they're all in use all the time. But considering where we're going, it'd be dumb to take something that valuable. The Ithari have one, but they could surely use more aswell…'
"I would have to talk with Sifiera about that. Technically, I'm under her command right now…"
(Which plan do you like?) "But I will send one amulet for you then? Or two?"
Derek glances at Karen. 'Two.'
Arim: "Yes, two."
Zezana nods "I tell the treasury to send you two… to what location?"
