Second Party 1

Elly säger:
"Oh, we'll probably need… I don't know… do you have any ham? And some potatoes? We won't need it until after, anyway." She shrugs helplessly.
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yeah we do have that as long as you have coin." He smiles.
Elly säger:
"How much would it be?" She asks absently, engaging Goldie in an undertable foot war by rubbing the bottom of the little girl's feet.
Wolfbane säger:
She kicks back when she needs to, giggling.
Shadowcaller säger:
"11 and 24 copper for all that… yeah."
Elly säger:
"We'll make it an even twelve, hm?" She asks Goldie, half seriously.
Wolfbane säger:
She smiles. She's a bit caught up in all of this. No one's taken her in before.
Elly säger:
"I'll take that as a yes!" She declares cheerfully, "…but would you mind hurrying it a little, haven't had a good meal in, oh…" She glances at Goldie, "A few weeks, I'd say."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yes, it's not like we have any other orders…"
The inn-keeper orders a servant to start with the food.
Elly säger:
Wren goes back to smiling at Goldie, and tickling her feet, "So, Goldie. Would you like to come with us to Denin(?), then?"
Wolfbane säger:
She giggles again. "Sure. Where's that?"
Shadowcaller säger:
*derin
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Someone nudge the chat when I'm needed again.
Elly säger:
"Well… it's still a long ways from here, but uncle Hector and I are on our way there for… a pilgrimage. Better yet, we're going to be getting a house sometime, and you could stay with us." Wren quirks her smile up wryly, "If you think that's alright, of course."
Wolfbane säger:
She smiles. "That'd be great! But… why are you helping me? I'm just a beggar."
Elly säger:
She reaches across the table and takes one of Goldie's hands in both of hers, "And I'm just a gypsy." Wren says laughingly, "It's not who you are now, it's who you could be." She glances at the kitchen door, "Now, before he gets back, how would you like to pay for the food?"
Wolfbane säger:
She reaches into her pocket and sets a few of the silver coins on the table. She looks hard pressed to part with them.
Elly säger:
"Now, there, there. Let me see one of those?" Wren reaches out, letting Goldie decide wether to give her the coin or not.
Wolfbane säger:
Since Wren was the one who gave her the coins, she lets her take them, though its obviously hard to let her do so.
Elly säger:
( Just one! )
She smiles softly, "Besides, you only have seven, how could you ever manage to pay for it… unless…" She rolls the coin back to Goldie, letting the extra coins she had 'stolen' from Hector roll out of her sleeve, to join with it, making a little pile in front of Goldie.
Wolfbane säger:
(SC said Copper anyways. <.<)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
( 'Vague amount stolen from Hector' )
Shadowcaller säger:
(Yes, vague amount.)
Elly säger:

General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Enough to cover the costs, I suspect )
Elly säger:
( Mysteriously exactly twelve. )
Shadowcaller säger:
(Yeah…)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
Shadowcaller säger:
The innkeeper accepts the money with a smile.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Yay!)
Elly säger:
( Wooh, unspecified amounts! *puts Shrimpy in charge of actually keeping track* )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(We…um…err…One sec!)
We have the equivalent of 173 sp left.
Shadowcaller säger:
After a while the food you ordered comes served.
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie digs in quickly.
Elly säger:
Wren eats her bread much in the same way as she had before, one little bite at a time, though without the jam, she intersperces it with some of the vegetables. "Well? How is it?" She asks Goldie with a soft smile after a minute or so.
Wolfbane säger:
She stops and gives her a smile. "Its good, thanks."
Elly säger:
"No, no. Thank you. You paid for it, afterall." Wren finishes her bread off, except the last corner of the crust, and leaves that discarded on the side while she eats the rest.
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie grabs the crust, instincts kicking in and eats it as well before continuing her soup. She's learned not to waste food
Elly säger:
Wren laughs softly, "Hungry, then?" She asks, finishing her meal.
Wolfbane säger:
She looks down, embarrassed. "Its just… been a while."
Elly säger:
"Oh, no! Don't be embaressed!" Wren exclaims, "I'll make sure you're well fed from now on."
Wolfbane säger:
She continues on, eating slower though.
Elly säger:
Wren looks around curiously, "Well… do you want to take that in to the room? Uncle Hector needs his meal by now, too."
Wolfbane säger:
She nods. "I don't mind."
Elly säger:
Wren takes the remaining plate of food, and carries it back down the hall, waiting for Goldie before akwardly opening the door one handed.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
The sound of the door opening gets my attention. As clean as I'm probably going to get, and now in freezing cold water, I quickly try to get out, slipping and splashing. I look around for a towel and…realise I forgot to get one beforehand.
"Um, Wren! Where are the towels?"
Elly säger:
"On the floor?" She half anwsers, reaching down to cover Goldie's eyes, while trying to keep the plate of food balanced.
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie giggles as her eyes are covered.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
They're probably still wet though. I was hoping there'd be a dry one. Oh well. "Fine, fine, I'll use the wet one!" I wrap it round myself tightly and step away from the bath, shivering. "I think I stayed in there too long…"
Elly säger:
"Probably! We're done eating." She anwsers him. She glares at him for a minute, "And why didn't you get dressed and out of the tub earlier? Poor Goldie is going to be scarred for life!" She says laughingly, setting the plate down on the bedside table.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I…lost track of time." I shuffle my feet, embarrassed. "I'm sure she'll be fine," I say looking up and smirking at her, "You're just trying to make me feel bad." I flick my hair out of my eyes, the sandy colour entirely natural now, and grab my clothes. "Go on, turn away, it's freezing in there, I'm not going to put my clothes on in there."
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie keeps laughing.
Elly säger:
Wren turns Goldie around, keeping a hand over the little girl's eyes. "Jeeze, huh?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I quickly dry myself off and put my clothes on. "Okay, okay, sorry about that. I feel absolutely ridiculous, you happy now?"
Elly säger:
"Yes." She turns to confront Hector, shooing Goldie toward the bed. "Anyways…" She look at Hector, "How early are we getting going tomorrow? I want Goldie to get some sleep in…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Early start again tomorrow. We can't afford to waste time." I look at the bed and sigh, "She should probably go to sleep as soon as her food has settled down, and I'm sleeping on the floor tonight, aren't I?"
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie lays on the bed, falling instantly asleep.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:

"Or maybe she'll just go to sleep now."
Elly säger:
Wren smiles at Hector wryly. "Yup. You get the floor." She moves over to the bed, and climbs in on the other side, leaving Hector to his food.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Hmmph." I wolf my food down, then walk round and sit on the edge of the bed on Wren's side. "No chance of you joining me? It's cold and lonely on the floor."
Elly säger:
She glances up at Hector, then wraps her arms around Goldie protectively, curling in close and pulling the blankets up over them. "Tomorrow." Wren anwsers Hector quietly.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Can we at least talk for a while? I'm not entirely happy about this place, and I think you need to know what happened."
Elly säger:
"Sure." She anwsers, stroking Goldie's side, "We can talk a little."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"First of all, I hate you for making me agree to look after her," I huff at her and fold my arms, mock-angrily, "Secondly, *Relates earlier conversation with innkeeper*. I think we should be okay. It's quiet here, so not many people should know that we're in town. But, I'm not happy. I'm going to be keeping watch for a while, at least."
Elly säger:
She sticks her tongue out at him for the first comment, then sits and listens. "Well… We should be alright. As long as we're careful. I'll block up the window right now, if you pull the curtains (assuming it has any)."
Shadowcaller säger:
(It have I guess.)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I nod and do so. When I'm done I head back over and try to put my arms round her briefly. "I'm not happy about this at all. I…might not get much sleep tonight, so sorry in advance in case I'm grumpy in the morning."
Elly säger:
She gives him a brief one armed hug, "It's no problem. I'll sure to try and cheer you up a little." /create wall curtain shirt & pants shadow/ She curls back up with Goldie. "Goodnight."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Goodnight." I shift a chair round so it's in the centre of the room, the back towards the bathroom. I keep my bow out on my lap, my quiver to one side of the chair, and settle in to keep watch for as long as I can.
Elly säger:
( Right back. I has the munchies. )
Shadowcaller säger:
Nothing happends during the night.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Halfway through the night, I fall asleep, more tired than I thought I was. I don't even manage to curl up on the floor, simply falling asleep right there in the chair.
Shadowcaller säger:
You wake up eventually.
During the late morning.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Hey!
Elly säger:

Wolfbane säger:
Goldie is still asleep, having wrapped herself in the blankets
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Doesn't Wren wake up at a reasonable hours? *grumbles*)
Elly säger:
( Appearntly not? >.> )
Shadowcaller säger:
(You wake up whenever you wish…)
<.<
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Early morning! Early morning!)
(*leaves it up to Elly since Wren is gonna be waking up first anyway*)
Elly säger:
Wren wakes up around MIDmorning, rather sleepily, to notice Hector having had fallen asleep in the chair. She stares blurrily at him, before throwing a sock at him. "What happened to getting up early?" She asks, trying not to wake Goldie.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I don't stir, a mere sock is not enough to wake me up/
*.
Elly säger:
She sighs, seeing no reply, and rolls out of bed onto the cold floor, she shivers and trudges across the room to gently poke his shoulder. "Hector?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Mmmm?" I'm not good in the morning.
Elly säger:
She sits in his lap, and wraps her arms around his shoulders, "Wake up, sleepyhead." She says to him again, with a frown.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I look down, and then up, then grin and hug her, concluding that I'm dreaming. "S'nice dream…"
Elly säger:
She pinches his nose and covers his mouth until he properly wakes up, looking up and the cieling and humming cheerfully.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Splrrwhu? What are you doing?" I squirm awkwardly in the chair, "Wait, that wasn't a dream?"
Elly säger:
"No. But we should be getting out of here." She smiles and gives him a peck on the cheek. "How are we going to get Goldie around? She's not going to be able to walk as much, or as fast as us…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I guess we'll just have to carry her when she gets tired. I'm used to carrying heavy weights around. She'll be light in comparison."
Elly säger:
Wren nods, and lifts the little girl out of bed herself for now, "I'll carry her until she wakes up, I guess."
Wolfbane säger:
She's out cold.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Okay, okay." It takes me a moment or two to sort out my stuff. Luckily we still have some packed food for the road. Should be enough for today if we're careful. "Let's head out then and get going."
Elly säger:
Wren smiles, and sets Goldie up on her shoulders, then starts after Hector.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
And they're off!
Elly säger:
( On a zany adventure of love, orphans, explosions and Thriller! )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(And almost certain death at the hands of demons)
Wolfbane säger:
(*puts on blazer*)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Most notably, Wolf)
Elly säger:
( Hmmm. )
Wolfbane säger:
( ^^)
Elly säger:
( We'll see, we'll see…)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Stupid nemesis player character)
Elly säger:
( *loads GM poke cannon* )
( *fires a POKE!*)
Wolfbane säger:
(He's haveing a moment with a PC in a different game. )
Elly säger:
( Having a moment? )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(*Sniggers*)
Wolfbane säger:
(Being able to shapeshift back to her normal self)
Elly säger:
( …she can't or something? )
Shadowcaller säger:
(H?)
back.
Elly säger:
^.^
Shadowcaller säger:
Okay, so you leave the inn…
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Yes, yes we do.
Shadowcaller säger:
You leave the city as well?
Elly säger:
( *presses fastfoward to event/travelling?*)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
yes
We continue heading to (City of anti-demon people)
Shadowcaller säger:
You travel along the road, it goes quiet smoothly until you see the same man as Hector saw in the first inn standing in the middle of the road.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:

"Oh, that's really not good." I slow to a halt.
Elly säger:
"Is that the other demon fellow?" Wren asks quietly, heading off the side of the road. (Woodsy?)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Nope, he already appears to have spooted you anyway.)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Yes, it is. Too late to make a break for the forest, he'll have spotted us for sure."
Shadowcaller säger:
He starts to walk towards you slowly, showing his palms
.
Elly säger:
Wren stays behind Hector, with Goldie still up on her shoulders, "What are we going to do?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Good afternoon!" I turn and smile at Wren, whispering to her, "We'll be fine. You just make sure you're ready to use your powers."
Elly säger:
"In broad day li…" She stops, coming up with an idea.
Shadowcaller säger:
"Ah, we meet again, Wren, Hector… and who might this last child be?"
Wolfbane säger:
*still asleep*
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"She's just a poor girl we encountered on the streets and took pity on, nothing more."
Shadowcaller säger:
"You are afraid I might belive otherwise?"
Elly säger:
Wren slides her hand up into her sleeve. "Why would we care what you think?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"You mortals aren't very good liars."
"But I come in peace."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You're a demon who seems quite confident that you can kill us whenever you wish. I'm fairly sure you'd consider everything we said lies even when we are telling the truth. What do you want now?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"I like to help you."
"See, I'm not the only demon hunting the children."
"There are at least one other demon out there that isn't as merciful as me."
"Once you encounter that demon, or any demon beside me, you are going to die."
"The only way you can survive, is to become more powerful."
"You need more powers…"
"And I so happend to know the location of a really evil child."
Elly säger:
"Why do you want us to kill the other children so badly?" Wren carefully lowers Goldie down her back, trying to hold her in place and cover the little girl's ears.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"We are not murderers. Your words are wasted on us, demon."
Shadowcaller säger:
He sigh. "You will be saving people. The man I speak off is a murderer himself."
Wolfbane säger:
Even if she was awake, Goldie has seen and heard murder before.
Shadowcaller säger:
"You would kill me if you could wouldn't you?"
Elly säger:
*doesn't know that!*
"You're not a person."
( >.> )
Shadowcaller säger:
"What? Of course I am."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I…I would kill you because you might grow tired of us at any moment. This murderer is someone I have never encountered. Why should we go out of our way to make more enemies, on the advice of one of our enemies?"
Seems a bit silly really…
Shadowcaller säger:
"More enemies? I'm not your enemy in this. I need help you see?"
"And by killing this man, you are saving a whole village."
"He have already murered five people."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Demon, or murderer. I know which one I'd pick. Damn my refusal to metagame!)
Elly säger:
"A whole village? How?" She decides to just go along with it just to get him gone.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"We're looking after a little girl. She is our priority right now. By going after this man, we put her life at risk…"
Shadowcaller säger:
"He is picking them off, one by one ever since he got exiled…"
"But I can help your little girl as well."
"This…" He picks out a ring "…is going to help you."
Elly säger:
"How?" Wren asks, fairly suspicious of the whole ordeal.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You expect us to simply trust you?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"No, sadly I can only take one shape, so I can't become a cute little girl you instantly will love."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:

Elly säger:
Wren peers at the demon, "Are you trying to say something, or do you tie your tongue in knots for your own amusement?"
Shadowcaller säger:
He chuckles "Now, let's get to the point then shall we?"
"This ring will help you see if other demons are nearby."
"See how it glows green?"
(it dose.)
"Thats beacuse I'm here, it's made of silver."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Silver works on werewolves! Not demons. *coughs* anyway…)
"And this definitely isn't any sort of demon trick at all." I frown and shake my head, reluctant to even listen to the demon.
Shadowcaller säger:
"It's not, I'm planning to sponsor you actually."
"You see… if you refuse to kill the children, there is something else you can do."
Elly säger:
"Oh? And what would that be?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"The other demon that is hunting you, kill him."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
…"What other demon?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"he's an old rival of mine, recently lost his memory."
Elly säger:
Wren laughs lightly, "Really? You want us to do something we'd happily do, anyway? Though, I'm curious why."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Oh, since we are rivals."
"I just like to see him curshed by mere mortals."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Hmmph, mere mortals? Fine, fine, tell us about your rival then."
Shadowcaller säger:
"He is a deciver demon, he can take many shapes and forms."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(That tree wasn't there a moment before! CHARGE!)
Shadowcaller säger:
"If he touch naked skin, he could make you go away."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Make us go away? What do you mean?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"Reduce you to a pile of ash."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:

Shadowcaller säger:
"Just clothes and equipment left."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
……
Shadowcaller säger:
"He also have the power to make persons sleep and send fire balls… but he dosen't know that yet."
"Don't tell anyone about that."
"As long he dosen't know, he can't use those abilities."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Okay."
Elly säger:
"I'll make sure not to tell him in the wonderful discussion before he tries to kill us…"
Shadowcaller säger:
"Great." He places the ring on the ground. "So, demons have weaknesses, steel for example."
"It it touches out skin, it burns."
"We get weaker."
"Mithril protects you from magic, dragon stone makes a demons mind weaker so they can be controlled…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(My arrows totally have steel arrowheads! <.< >.>)
Elly säger:
( >.> )
Wolfbane säger:
(Its not as easy as all that. ^^)
Elly säger:
(*cuts Wolfie's head off* Shush, you. )
Shadowcaller säger:
"So, with these type of metals, you can defeat a demon, all demon hunters use it."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I see. Well, that's useful to know."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Indeed, so in exchange for my information, you kill him for me?"
"I know where he is right now…"
Elly säger:
"Oh really? Where?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"He's in ruthar, in the city of Atun quite far away from here."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"I see. So you want us to kill this demon by going way off course. Would it not make sense to wait for him to come to us?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"I marked the girl that is following him."
He shrugs "That might take some time…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Perhaps, but it is a better option than simply walking into a trap. Besides, we do have other business to take care of. You can stay safe in the knowledge that we will honour this agreement, but the little girl comes first."
Shadowcaller säger:
"I can take the girl to a safe place if you like…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Um, no."
Shadowcaller säger:
"No harm will be done to her."
Elly säger:
"No!"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Not happening."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Now, now… I know a family that can take care of her, much better then you two."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"That would involve us trusting you, and that isn't going to happen any time soon.
*"
Shadowcaller säger:
"Too bad, she might die out here you know?"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Is that a threat?"
Shadowcaller säger:
"No, a fact. Look how sick she is, I can feel her soul fading as we speak."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"She's just malnourished. We have plenty of food."
Shadowcaller säger:
"It's your choice."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"You. Are. A. Demon." I state, simply, "We. Do. Not. Trust. You!" Let's see if he gets the message now!
Shadowcaller säger:
"As I said, it is your choice."
He walks off the road, into the woods.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I breathe a sigh of relief and try and pull Wren away from my shoulder. I wouldn't be surprised if she was crushing the bones in my back after that.
Elly säger:
(Sorry… Distracted. X_X )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Bad Elly! No distractions allowed!)
Elly säger:
( Pain. D: )
Shadowcaller säger:
Pain? o.O
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Okay, okay, *pats*)
Elly säger:
( The inside of my left ear is all swollen. And it hurts, now. ;-; )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(Go to the doctor?)
Wolfbane säger:
(*hugs*)
Shadowcaller säger:
(Oh…)
Elly säger:
("Hi. My ear hurts." That wouldn't be wierd at all.)
( Sorry. Just irritated now. ;-; )
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
(S'okay)
Elly säger:
Wren reluctantly lets go of Hector's back, "Well…"
Shadowcaller säger:
(*hugs Elly*)
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Sorry, Wren. I had to agree to some part of the deal to make him leave. But we're going to make sure Goldie is safe first. And don't feel like you have to help me afterwards."
Elly säger:
"Goldie… Goldie, you awake yet?" Wren shrugs off the while encounter, "I know. I should help you during, not afterwards…"
Wolfbane säger:
She stirs awake slowly. "Huh…sorry."
Elly säger:
"Oh, it's okay dear." She gently pinches the little girl's cheek, "How're you feeling?"
Wolfbane säger:
"A bit sick, but okay. Warm."
Elly säger:
Wren smiles, "Hungry? I bet you uncle Hector has something hidden away that you can have…"
Wolfbane säger:
She nods. "Very."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"So I'm an uncle now? What does that make you?" I chuckle, taking out some of the food we were given from that inn we stayed at on the first night. "Go on, Goldie, enjoy!"
Wolfbane säger:
She climbs down and eats the food quickly. Her color is a bit better than before.
Elly säger:
"Think you can keep up for a little?" Wren asks the girl, giving her shoulders a gentle squeeze.
Wolfbane säger:
She nods. "I can."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I nod, smile, and set off once more at a slightly slower pace. "As soon as you get uncomfortable, Goldie, tell us."
Elly säger:
Wren follows along, making sure to stay close to Goldie, holding her hand if possible.
Wolfbane säger:
Goldie is able to keep up for a while, but after a few hours, starts to lag behind.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"My turn to carry Goldie, I believe."
Elly säger:
"You tired, hun?" Wren asks, her, rather concerned, then nods at Hector. "I think so."
Wolfbane säger:
She nods. "Sorry…"
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"It's fine!" I say, picking her up and putting her on my shoulders, "I don't mind this at all."
Wolfbane säger:
She clings to him, falling asleep again.
Elly säger:
"Aw, you sleepy, Goldie?" Wren asks, trotting along aside Hector.
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
"Looks like it. Perhaps we should think about finding somewhere to stop for a while. She can't be comfortable, sleeping like that."
Elly säger:
Wren nods, "I guess we can make up the ground later."
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
I slow down, looking for somewhere suitable to lie down for a while.
Wolfbane säger:
brb
Shadowcaller säger:
Sec

Elly har lämnat konversationen.

Shadowcaller säger:
Oh… sorry
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
Where did Elly go?
Wolfbane säger:
I can't invite people
General *grumble* Shrimp säger:
me either.

General *grumble* Shrimp har lämnat konversationen.
