Spirit Realm 01

[15:52] Shadowcaller: Okay so… let me start then…
[15:55] Shadowcaller: The first thing you can feel is how something crawls on your back, and you open your eyes. The first thing you see is hay.
[15:55] Wolfbane: Promise tries to sit up and look around.
[15:58] Shadowcaller: You hear a squek and feel how whatever was upon your back quickly removes itself from there as you start moving. You look around and see nothing but dark stone walls. High above light is streaming out from a tiny bared cell window.
[15:59] Shadowcaller: The floor is uneven, and so are the walls that almost appears to be made out of solid stone
[16:00] Shadowcaller: But you can see traces of mortal hand here and there
[16:00] Shadowcaller: The room is very small, you are laying upon a pile of hay
[16:00] Murska: (I won't be needed I hope)
[16:00] Murska: (Somehow very weary)
[16:01] Wolfbane: (lack of sleep? :P)
[16:01] Murska: (lately I've slept about 75% of my time)
[16:01] Shadowcaller: You feel very weak and light headed
[16:01] Murska: (No I don't »)
[16:02] Shadowcaller: You might notice that you don't have a singel piece of cloth on your body
[16:02] Shadowcaller: (That too?:P)
[16:02] Wolfbane: What is the last thing he remembers?
[16:02] Wolfbane: (Hope you feel better)
[16:03] Murska: (Well I don't feel /bad/ I just… /feel/ bad.)
[16:04] Shadowcaller: You remember… the temple of twilight, Hakari… yes, the spirit saved you efter you had done something… but after that its all blank. You did some type of mission, you remember how you were trapped in the spirit world as the gate closed…
[16:05] Shadowcaller: Yes, Hakari let you out once the gate had opened, the closest opening to the group as possible
[16:06] Shadowcaller: But then… you ended up here, somehow. You remember tiny men, experiments… pain
[16:06] Shadowcaller: The details are very blurred, you just remember that you have gone in and out of this cell
[16:06] Wolfbane: Promise checks himself for injuries.
[16:08] Shadowcaller: There are scars all over your body, some new, some older, but none of them fully healed.
[16:08] Wolfbane: He tries to stand.
[16:10] Shadowcaller: He manages to do so, he now have been in this cell for… quite some time. He haven't been taken out of it regulary as he was before.
[16:10] Shadowcaller: *were before
[16:11] Wolfbane: Promise goes to whatever passes as a door and tests it.
[16:11] Shadowcaller: There are no doors
[16:11] Wolfbane: oh…
[16:12] Shadowcaller: But if he looks up, he can see that there is some type of manhole like hatch very far above him, there is also a tiny hole in the wall where he's feed
[16:12] Wolfbane: He tries to look out the window.
[16:13] Shadowcaller: Its really far up, he can only see light coming from it
[16:13] Shadowcaller: WHich in fact seems to be the only light source in this room
[16:14] Shadowcaller: In the walls around him there are tiny nests of different vermin
[16:15] Shadowcaller: Suddenly he can hear footsteps coming from the other side of the wall
[16:15] Wolfbane: He stays silent and listens closely.
[16:16] Shadowcaller: The footsteps suddenly stops and he can hear something drop near the hole, instinct tells him that its feeding time
[16:18] Wolfbane: He waits by the hole, trying to make it so he isn't seen.
[16:20] Shadowcaller: (actually, the hole is near the floor, and is just large enough that he can fit his hand throught it
[16:20] Shadowcaller: )
[16:20] Wolfbane: (oh)
[16:21] Shadowcaller: *through

[16:21] Wolfbane: He reaches through carefully.
[16:22] Shadowcaller: He can feel a wooden object, he should be very careful with this…
[16:23] Wolfbane: He tries to pull it in as careful as possible.
[16:24] Shadowcaller: Its a wooden bowl filled with some type of slab, but its (otherwise dreadful) aroma wakes hunger in you.
[16:25] Happy: (grr… imma kill whoever's tormenting mah Promise…)
[16:25] Wolfbane: Promise eats it, not knowing what else to do for the moment. He keeps the bowl tough.
[16:26] Shadowcaller: (Instinct tell him that he won't get any food tomorrow if he keeps it.)
[16:26] Murska: (that's a specific instinct)
[16:26] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, well he tried it before.)
[16:26] Shadowcaller: (Memory then.)
[16:27] Wolfbane: Promise sighs and sets it back when empty.
[16:28] Shadowcaller: (Oh sorry, forgot to mention one thing there since you ate so fast…) As you eat the slab you can feel a metal cast in your mouth, that haven't been there before…
[16:28] Wolfbane: Promise spits it out into his paw.
[16:29] Wolfbane: (Link: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6741923#post6741923)http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6741923#post6741923
[16:29] Wolfbane: (Sign up!)
[16:29] Shadowcaller: Its about as large as your thumb (actually a bit smaller since I guess Promise got pretty bit tumbs)
[16:29] Wolfbane: What is it?
[16:29] Shadowcaller: *big
[16:29] Shadowcaller: It is some type of container
[16:30] Wolfbane: He tries to open it.
[16:33] Shadowcaller: He dose so, when he puts the bowl back, he can hear the footsteps again, growing fainter and fainter until they are gone again. Inside the container there is a glas pellet filled with a green liquid, inscirbed into the pellet is the word (on wolfen strangely enough) "acid"
[16:34] Wolfbane: Promise looks around for a weak spot or something that could be eaten through.
[16:35] Shadowcaller: (the walls are really thick, as he can see by looking into that tiny hole in which his captors feed him through.)

[16:36] Wolfbane: Is he shackled or chained?
[16:37] Shadowcaller: Neither
[16:37] Shadowcaller: (but… I need to do something really quick.)
[16:39] Wolfbane: Then Promise waits, keeping the pellet hidden.
[16:41] Shadowcaller: (Feel free to disscuss something or whatnot, I need to finish some university things.)
[16:42] Murska: (What was Happy's PBEM start like?)
[16:42] Happy: nah, you first
[16:43] Wolfbane: PBEM?
[16:43] Happy: play by email civ game
[16:43] Wolfbane: oh
[16:43] Happy: Murska got a bunch of us hooked on Civilization 4
[16:44] Happy: there's a PBEM game just started on the forum, and we've played our first turn
[16:44] Happy: and murska is sneaky ;)
[16:45] Wolfbane: =P
[16:45] Murska: I told you what mine was like
[16:45] Murska: very interesting
[16:46] Happy: that's all you said
[16:46] Murska: yes?
[16:46] Happy: yes. which is meaningless, as you well know :P
[16:47] Murska: well I never asked for anything with meaning
[16:47] Happy: my start position is boring then
[16:47] Happy: you going for buddhism?
[16:48] Shadowcaller: brb, going to eat…
[16:49] Murska: nah, hindu
[16:50] Murska: I'm Asoka remember?
[16:53] Happy: 4 players start with mysticism, and I'm low on the turn order. I think my chances are not the greatest
[16:54] Murska: *shrug* religion is not needed
[16:55] Happy: Yeah. But it helps with the happy cap. But hopefully I'll have a religious neighbor
[16:55] Murska: tectonics
[16:55] Murska: you'll find someone
[16:58] Happy: Yeah
[16:58] Happy: what did you name your capital?
[16:58] Murska: nothing special
[16:59] Happy: awww, Delhi?
[16:59] Happy: you weren't boring, were you?
[16:59] Murska: of course
[16:59] Murska: I suck at naming things
[17:00] Happy: next turn, change it to Backstab City ;)
[17:00] Murska: but then I'll never remember it's my capital »
[17:01] Happy: Murskaville
[17:01] Happy: I went with Turtletopia
[17:03] Happy: and my first warrior is named Suroshian
[17:04] Murska: I never name things normally
[17:04] Murska: they'll just die anyway
[17:05] Happy: Aren't you the one who said it's more fun when they're named? :P
[17:06] Murska: yeah, but that was an observed game. »
[17:07] Murska: also yay at four games recruiting atm
[17:08] Happy: bah. I want your guys to have names when you finally turn on me and take mah culture cities
[17:09] Murska: well fine
[17:09] Murska: once you spot a modern armour named 'ghost'
[17:09] Murska: prepare for war
[17:09] Happy: will do
[17:12] Murska: but not a moment earlier
[17:14] Happy: okay. 1 archer per city then, and only enough navy to explore. Gotcha
[17:14] Murska: nono
[17:15] Murska: 1 warrior
[17:15] Murska: archers are too tough »
[17:16] Shadowcaller: back…
[17:16] Wolfbane: Yay!
[17:17] Shadowcaller: Promise can hear a noise above him, above him the large lid is slowly being removed, he can see a warm hum of light coming from it
[17:18] Wolfbane: He keeps the pellet hidden and walks under the hole.
[17:20] Shadowcaller: The lid is now fully removed and he can see a figure looking down on him from the opening above
[17:22] Shadowcaller: The figure hauls down something that lands beside him
[17:22] Wolfbane: Promise looks at it.
[17:22] Happy: (heh. this feels more like actual IF than anything we've done in a long time)
[17:23] Shadowcaller: Its a rope
[17:23] Murska: (But Wolfy is playing it wrong. :P)
[17:23] Wolfbane: (What /does/ IF mean anyways?)
[17:23] Murska: (The parser is too advanced)
[17:23] Shadowcaller: Suddenly it starts moving
[17:23] Shadowcaller: Like a snake
[17:23] Shadowcaller: (I burrowed this form a nother game actually, with some alternations.)
[17:24] Shadowcaller: *from
[17:24] Shadowcaller: *another
[17:24] Wolfbane: Promise backs up, getting ready to defend himself if it attacks him.
[17:24] Murska: (Nigma's? :P)
[17:24] Wolfbane: (He still has claws, right?)
[17:24] Shadowcaller: (Yeah >.>)
[17:25] Shadowcaller: (They have been filled down, he won't be able to cut anything with them.)
[17:25] Wolfbane: …
[17:25] Wolfbane: He still readies himself.
[17:25] Wolfbane: Has his teeth been filed too?
[17:26] Wolfbane: Have*
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Yes, they have
[17:26] Wolfbane: How bad?
[17:26] Wolfbane: O.o
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Since he don't have a mirror, he can't actually see, but they haven't left much of them
[17:27] Wolfbane: …
[17:27] Wolfbane: Okay, whoever did it is going to have a very slow painful death
[17:27] Shadowcaller: The rope attacks, trying to coil itself around him
[17:28] Wolfbane: Does he remember anything about it?
[17:28] Shadowcaller: Yes, this have happend many times before, he have always lost against the rope
[17:28] Wolfbane: Promise still tries to fight it as best he can.
[17:29] Shadowcaller: How exactly? Where do he keep the pellet?
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (here.)
[17:30] Wolfbane: He keeps it on him, tied into a part of his mane, under fur, (unless he was shaved too) but he won't use it yet.
[17:31] Shadowcaller: (Actually, he is shaved too, thats why he could see the scars remember?)
[17:33] Wolfbane: Then he would have put it back in the container and kept it in his mouth.
[17:33] Shadowcaller: Where in his mouth exactly?
[17:34] Wolfbane: Um… where it doesn't make any obvious bulges?
[17:34] Shadowcaller: Like under his tounge?
[17:35] Wolfbane: Yeah
[17:36] Shadowcaller: Okay, the rope coils around him, its a pretty strong rope. Soon enough he can't move at all
[17:37] Shadowcaller: He is face down at the floor
[17:37] Shadowcaller: He can now hear how a chain is hauled down
[17:38] Shadowcaller: Then he feels how a hook is attached to the ropes near his back
[17:39] Shadowcaller: By something, that apperently came down with the chain
[17:39] Shadowcaller: Then he hears how that thing starts to climb up the chain again
[17:41] Shadowcaller: Some time later he hears the chain moving again and he starts to be lift up, away from the floor
[17:42] Shadowcaller: Further and further up, passing the tiny bared call window
[17:42] Wolfbane: He tries to look out.
[17:42] Shadowcaller: He don't really see much but blinding day-light
[17:45] Shadowcaller: Finally he stops and as he looks to his side, he can finally get a glimpse of his capture, its a tall humanoid stone-man, or rather, two humanoid stone-men
[17:46] Shadowcaller: The room he have been hauled up to have three tiny bared windows, each set apart with equally distance from each other. There is also the machine they used to haul him up with.
[17:47] Wolfbane: Any exits?
[17:47] Shadowcaller: Yes, a right now closed door
[17:47] Shadowcaller: One of the stone men reach out and grab his coiled body
[17:48] Shadowcaller: *tied
[17:48] Wolfbane: Promsie can't really do anything.
[17:48] Wolfbane: >.>
[17:49] Wolfbane: Promise*
[17:50] Shadowcaller: It takes him up and hauls him over its shoulder, the other stone man takes a torch that lit up the room and then leads the other stone man, carrying Promise out through the door
[17:52] Shadowcaller: As they move he can see they pass more cells at the edge of his vision, filled with humans and what looks like midgets
[17:53] Shadowcaller: They look at him with dead eyes, like they have learned to not stare at anything too long
[17:53] Shadowcaller: He can see another group of two stone men pass them by
[17:54] Shadowcaller: But eventually, they stop, he can hear a door open and they step inside some kind of room
[17:55] Shadowcaller: The stone man lifts him from his shoulder and he can feel how the rope near his neck is attached to some kind of hook, the other stone man places the torach in a holder nearby
[17:58] Shadowcaller: Now a little beared men about the size of the midgets in the cells step inside the room. He is dressed in black clothes, that covers most of his body, it looks like he have some under it however.
[17:58] Wolfbane: (If I suddenly drop, it means I lost power)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (Thunder storm?)
[17:59] Wolfbane: (yeah)
[17:59] Wolfbane: Is Promise still tied up?
[17:59] Shadowcaller: He is yes
[18:00] Shadowcaller: The beared man looks at you, from toe to head and then declares something in a unknown language
[18:02] Shadowcaller: The stone men reacts to this and one of them takes his feet, while the other lifts him off the hook, the rest of the room consists of a stone slab and a chair.
[18:03] Happy: (wolfie's going to take Loony's place in insanowar ^^ )
[18:03] Wolfbane: ^^
[18:04] Murska: (Isn't it 'Gah'Zeyboh' anyway?)
[18:04] Shadowcaller: The little man smiles at him as the two stone men places him on the stone slab.
[18:05] Wolfbane: Promise only glares back. He has a feeling that whats about to happen isn't going to be pleasent.
[18:06] Happy: (there are actually several schisms amongst the worhsippers of Ga'Zeyboh as to the correct spelling)
[18:07] Murska: (Well why haven't they killed each other and eradicated the whole cult yet?)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: The rope then moves a bit, leaving his lower body in the care of one stone man that holds his feet very firm
[18:09] Shadowcaller: The beared man says something, most to himself and you and then leaves you alone with the two stone men
[18:09] Shadowcaller: *mostly to himself
[18:11] Wolfbane: Are his hands free?
[18:11] Shadowcaller: Nope
[18:15] Shadowcaller: After quite a while the beared man returns
[18:16] Shadowcaller: With some type of box along with him
[18:16] Shadowcaller: It looks like some type of tool box
[18:17] Happy: with your picks?
[18:17] Wolfbane: (wrong chat :P)
[18:18] Shadowcaller: He mumbles something on his language and picks up a wand of some kind
[18:21] Shadowcaller: You feel a sharp pain in your right leg as he touches you with it
[18:21] Shadowcaller: Memories of more such "sessions" flash before your eyes
[18:22] Wolfbane: Promise growls, but keeps his mouth shut.
[18:23] Shadowcaller: He holds back the wand and then looks at you strangely
[18:24] Shadowcaller: He then picks up what looks like some kind of plant
[18:26] Shadowcaller: And then some bottles containing different colored liquids, placing everything on what looks like some type of labotary stand in the wall
[18:26] Shadowcaller: He makes a gesture with his hand and the other stone man places his fists on eahc of your jaws
[18:27] Shadowcaller: *each
[18:27] Wolfbane: Promise keeps the container covered as best as he can with his tongue.
[18:28] Shadowcaller: The stone man starts to force his jaws open
[18:29] Wolfbane: Rather than have his jaws ripped off, Promise lets him.
[18:29] Shadowcaller: The little man now pours some of liquid contained in the bottle down his throat
[18:30] Shadowcaller: It feels like his whole mouth is on fire
[18:31] Wolfbane: With the choices being either drinking or drowning, he goes with drinking.
[18:31] Shadowcaller: You starts to feel dizzy as the man pours down another type of liquid down your throat
[18:34] Shadowcaller: He then procceds with taking up another type of wand that he touches you with, this time, you only feel a little zap
[18:34] Wolfbane: Promise only looks at the wand and growls half-heartedly.
[18:35] Shadowcaller: He nods and appears to be pleased with this
[18:37] Shadowcaller: He puts back the wand and picks up yet another, you have seen three different types of wands now
[18:39] Shadowcaller: He touches you with it and you feel a somewhat stonger zap, but its but a needle sting
[18:39] Wolfbane: Promise ignores it, trying to clear his head.
[18:45] Shadowcaller: With another wave of his hand, the rope slowly moves downwards, leaving Promises upper body free while his legs are tied down
[18:47] Shadowcaller: As they slowly frees, the stone man that was holding his jaws holds his shoulders and then moves his firm grip of your arms further down as the rope moves further down
[18:47] Wolfbane: So his arms stay trapped?
[18:48] Murska: (night)
[18:48] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[18:48] Shadowcaller: Pretty much yes, he remmebers that they are very careful with him, especially his arms as he have cuased some accidents in the past
[18:49] Shadowcaller: *remembers
[18:50] Shadowcaller: (really, there are reasons you haven't escaped before…)
[18:50] Shadowcaller: *why you haven't
[18:52] Shadowcaller: The stone man holds you firmly as your tormentor moves closer to your head, holding up a wand
[18:52] Shadowcaller: Which he haven't used before
[18:53] Wolfbane: Promise watches carefully since he is unable to do anything else.
[18:55] Shadowcaller: (yeah… placing it under your tounge was not really waht I had expected, but anyway…) He touches you with it and everything goes dark, it feels like you are drowning in pain
[18:55] Shadowcaller: *what
[18:56] Wolfbane: (Well, it was the only appropriate place on him that he could hide it.)
[18:56] Shadowcaller: (he touches your head that is.)
[18:56] Wolfbane: Then if possible, it is likely he screams in pain.
[19:00] Shadowcaller: He wakes up in his cell again. This time by some wierd voice speaking /Where are you?/ The voice is quite to the point, the type of person that only speaks in facts
[19:02] Wolfbane: /I-I don't know. Who are you?/
[19:03] Shadowcaller: /A friend, I was hoping to find you in the city somewhere, but apperently you have managed to hide yourself pretty well. Are you already outside?/
[19:04] Wolfbane: /No, I am in a cell. They've been doing… things to me./
[19:05] Shadowcaller: /Still in your cell? Did you swallow that pellet I sent to you?!/
[19:06] Wolfbane: /I was supposed to swallow it? It was labeled ACID. That is normally something I wouldn't./
[19:06] Shadowcaller: (the voice sounded sarcastic by the way.)
[19:09] Shadowcaller: /No, but… look here kid, if your still in your cell, they will discover me quite soon. So I only got a few minutes on me here. I'm suprised this communication even works here… otherwise I would have contacted you yesterday. Let me just ask you a question: what did you do with the pellet?/
[19:10] Wolfbane: Promise spits out the container into his paw if he still has it. /I hid it. I still have it here./
[19:12] Shadowcaller: /Hid it somewhere accesible…/ The voice start to sound increasingly frustrated /Just… any other questions?/ the last part is spoken really quick as the speaker suddenly is ina rush
[19:12] Shadowcaller: /in a
[19:13] Wolfbane: /How do I get out?/
[19:15] Shadowcaller: /Just look for stairs, there is only one direction you like to go and thats up./
[19:16] Wolfbane: Promise looks around. /I am in my cell, there are no stairs/
[19:17] Shadowcaller: /Um, once you have freed yourself of course, just use the acid on the ropes then get away from there, the golems are pretty slow so you should not have that much of a problem outrunning them./
[19:17] Wolfbane: He gets an idea. /Thanks. One more thing, are you able to contact Gods?/
[19:18] Shadowcaller: /…why?/
[19:19] Wolfbane: /It is a simple question, are you able to? If so, I can have my friends come here and help if they are close enough./ If he remembers them that is.
[19:19] Wolfbane: >.>
[19:19] Shadowcaller: (He dose of course.)
[19:20] Shadowcaller: /Yes, one god… I'm sure he have informed whatever friends you have all about it already./
[19:20] Wolfbane: /Who is "He"?/
[19:22] Shadowcaller: /Helios./ The voice replies shortly, it seems to running out of patience, or/and time
[19:22] Wolfbane: Promise groans loudly. /Make sure that they are on the way. Thanks for the help./
[19:23] Shadowcaller: There is no reply
[19:24] Wolfbane: Promise takes the pellet out of it's container and gets ready for when the rope comes again.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: A while later, the hatch above him starts opening again. It seems like these "sessions" are done in periods of days.
[19:25] Shadowcaller: Once again, the rope is thrown down into the cell
[19:26] Wolfbane: Promise lets it wrap him, but he keeps the pellet in one of his paws.
[19:27] Shadowcaller: This time, hes face is turned upwards, so he can actually see how the chain is lowered down and how the golem climbs down on it
[19:27] Happy: phone
[19:27] Wolfbane: Once the chain is lowered, he tries to smash the acid pellet against the rope.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: It breaks and acid is spilled on the rope and his hands. The rope suddenly moves away as it was some type of snake rather then a rope, leaving him free to move on his own
[19:29] Wolfbane: Ignoring the burns, Promise tries to climb the rope.
[19:29] Wolfbane: chain*
[19:30] Shadowcaller: He dose so, but the golem is already climbing down from the top of it
[19:30] Wolfbane: He'll try to grab it's leg to pull it off of the chain.
[19:33] Shadowcaller: With suprising strength you manage to make the golem lose its legs around the chain, its now only holding it with its massive arms. But dutily it tries to kick you with its now gree legs
[19:33] Shadowcaller: *free
[19:33] Wolfbane: Promise tries to avoid the kick and climb over it.
[19:35] Shadowcaller: Its very hard, you almost lose your grip of the chain as it hits your arm. This makes you realize how far up from the cell floor you really are…
[19:39] Wolfbane: (Army list is up for Insanowar)
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (..)
[19:43] Wolfbane: Promise continues to climb, over the golem if necessary.
[19:43] Wolfbane: ?
[19:45] Shadowcaller: You still attempts to climb, the golem still kicking like crazy, one of its legs hitting you right in your face as you try to climb over it, it hurts pretty bad. It feels like your world is shaking
[19:45] Wolfbane: (How high up is he?)
[19:46] Shadowcaller: (Quite far actually, he might not survive the fall if he lost his grip.)
[19:46] Wolfbane: O.o
[19:48] Wolfbane: Promise wraps his legs with the chain several times so he can't fall before grabbing the golem's legs with both paws and pulling down as hard as possible.
[19:50] Shadowcaller: The legs are not that easy to catch, but he dose manage to get them. But no matter how hard he pulls, he can't seems to pull the golem away, its arms are just too strong
[19:51] Wolfbane: *really should have waited till he was at the top*
[19:51] Wolfbane: =P
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (At least the legs aren't moving…)
[19:52] Wolfbane: Promise keeps hold of the legs and untangles his legs. He then tries to continue climbing.
[19:54] Shadowcaller: (Um, how is he going to keep his arms around the golems legs if he moves upward?)
[19:54] Wolfbane: …
[19:54] Wolfbane: *thinks*
[19:56] Wolfbane: Promise keeps his legs wrapped in the chain and with one paw tries to pick up some of the loose chain from the end while keeping the leg closest to him still.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: So, he lets go of the golems legs then?
[19:57] Wolfbane: One leg.
[19:57] Wolfbane: He is drawing up loose chain from below
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Okay, as soon as he lets go of the leg, its start kicking even more voilently then before, its really hard to lean down if he holds the other leg at the same time thought
[19:59] Wolfbane: Promise climbs down the chain a bit to get out of reach.
[20:00] Shadowcaller: As soon as he lets go of both the golems legs, it tries to steady itself again
[20:00] Wolfbane: Promise waits to see what it does.
[20:01] Shadowcaller: It tries to get a hold of the chain again
[20:01] Wolfbane: Promise starts pulling up loose chain while watching it.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: He can't seems to reach the chain while keeping his eyes on the golem
[20:03] Wolfbane: …
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (well, that would be hard >.>)
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (Right?)
[20:04] Wolfbane: Then he ignores the golem for a moment before grabbing the chain below him. After grabbing it he looks back as he pulls up more.
[20:04] Happy: (peripheral vision?)
[20:05] Shadowcaller: It haven't moved much, but dose seems to have managed to get its legs around the chain again
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (Hm, well nothing would have happend anyway, but I guess its different with wolfen…)
[20:06] Shadowcaller: You now got the chain in your (left?/right?) hand
[20:07] Wolfbane: He is now holding the chain in his left hand while grabbing more with his right.
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Okay, the golem is slowly starting to move down towards him again
[20:08] Wolfbane: Promise sees this and lets go of the chain (the loose end) and slides down a little more, watching what it does.
[20:09] Shadowcaller: It continues to climb down
[20:11] Wolfbane: Promise climbs down to the bottom and watches it.
[20:11] Shadowcaller: It continues to climb down towards him
[20:12] Wolfbane: Promise steps away from the chain a bit and lets it climb down.
[20:13] Shadowcaller: When it reaches the cell floor it lets go of the chain and strech out its massive fists toward him
[20:13] Wolfbane: Promise backs up a bit, trying to get it away from the chain.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: It goes after Promise, trying to corner him
[20:15] Wolfbane: Promise tries to run past it(out of arm's reach if possible) to the chain.
[20:15] Shadowcaller: It tries to grab him, but is too slow, he reaches the chain as its still turning around
[20:16] Wolfbane: Promise climbs as quickly as possible.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Leaping the first bit, he just manages to get out of the golems reach as it attempts to grab his leg
[20:18] Shadowcaller: He climbs up the chain with the golem after him, high above, he can see the other golem looking down on them with empty eyes
[20:19] Wolfbane: He tries to climb out of the hole.
[20:20] Shadowcaller: When he starts reaching the end of the chain, the other golem tries to grab him
[20:21] Wolfbane: (As in pulling him?)
[20:21] Wolfbane: Promise tries to grab onto the golem's arm instead.
[20:22] Shadowcaller: (as in reaching out and pulling him yes.)
[20:22] Shadowcaller: With both arms or just one?
[20:22] Wolfbane: One.
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (sec)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: (back)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: You grab on to it with your arm as it tries to grab you
[20:29] Wolfbane: Promise will try to grab onto the other arm too.
[20:31] Shadowcaller: You now got both arms and it got your shoulders
[20:32] Wolfbane: He'll wait till it pulls him out of the hole before he tries to escape it by trying to kick it's eyes.
[20:36] Shadowcaller: (Thats quite a stunt…) the golem secures him firmly by his arms, but he still somehow manages to hold on to its undersides, with a increadible feat of strenght you actually manage to kick it in its eyes which cuases it to loosen its grip a bit
[20:37] Wolfbane: Promise tries to get out of it's grip and away from it.
[20:38] Shadowcaller: (He is still right above the hole by the way…)
[20:39] Wolfbane: Then he tries to keep his grip on it while trying to get out of the golem's grip. If he can get free, he'll try to get to the edge and away.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: He manages to pull himself free, suing the golems arms as support the next moment he's away from the golem that just misses him
[20:41] Wolfbane: He takes a quick look around for any weapons or keys.
[20:41] Wolfbane: Before running through the door.
[20:41] Happy: push him down the hole!
[20:41] Wolfbane: Well, of course he does that! I meant afterwards.
[20:42] Wolfbane: <.<
[20:42] Shadowcaller: The room is actually empty beside the machine that was used to pull you up
[20:43] Shadowcaller: The golem steps towards you with its arms reached out to grab you
[20:44] Shadowcaller: Afterwards? How exactly?
[20:45] Wolfbane: hmm…
[20:45] Wolfbane: Is the winch movable?
[20:46] Shadowcaller: Dosen't look that way, it just looks to have been made to take people up and down to the cell
[20:48] Wolfbane: Then Promise ignores the thing since it would probably pull him down with it. He goes through the door and shuts it behind him. He looks for keys, weapons, anything he can use. Even clothes.
[20:49] Shadowcaller: There is a torch in a holder right outside the door.
[20:49] Shadowcaller: But otherwise its just a corridor
[20:50] Wolfbane: He grabs the torch and keeps moving.
[20:51] Shadowcaller: As you reach the end of the corridor, the door opens again and the golem steps out, behind it you can see the other golem pulling itself out from the hole.
[20:52] Shadowcaller: The corridor now turns and you can see the cells in front of you
[20:52] Wolfbane: Any keys?
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Nope, its a corridor
[20:53] Wolfbane: He continues on
[20:53] Shadowcaller: People on each side of the cell tries to reach for you desperatly as they see that you somehow managed to escape
[20:53] Shadowcaller: Moaning, screaming…
[20:54] Happy: :(
[20:54] Wolfbane: Promise keeps going, looking for any way to open the doors.
[20:55] Wolfbane: v.v
[20:56] Wolfbane: He is obviously apologetic.
[20:57] Shadowcaller: There are doors with locks, but you don't see any way to open them. The end of the corridor splits in three, one inside his torture room, one to the left and one to the right. The prisoners are desperate and dosen't really seem to understand him, or even care what he says, they just want to get out of their cells.
[20:58] Wolfbane: Does he see any steps?
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (Steps?9
[20:59] Shadowcaller: *)
[20:59] Wolfbane: stairs*
[21:00] Shadowcaller: At the end of the corridor he sees a door that leads to his torture room, he can't see how the other two corridors ends however
[21:01] Wolfbane: Were there knives and stuff in the torture room?
[21:01] Shadowcaller: Nope, the little beared man had all that stuff with him
[21:01] Wolfbane: Does he smell anything that may indicate which way to go?
[21:02] Shadowcaller: He can smell fear and panic, sweat, blood, vomit… but nothing that really indicates which way to go
[21:02] Wolfbane: He goes to the right.
[21:04] Shadowcaller: As he runs up the corridor he can see two golems turn around the corner, most likely drawn here by all the sound the prisoners made
[21:04] Shadowcaller: *make
[21:04] Wolfbane: In front of him?
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Yeah, he can see them turn around the corner
[21:06] Wolfbane: He backtracks and goes to the left corridor instead.
[21:07] Shadowcaller: He runs left instead down a long corridor until he see some stairs in the distance
[21:08] Wolfbane: He goes up.
[21:09] Shadowcaller: Upwards he goes, the stairs aren't actually that long and about as wide as the corridor itself (which is quite wide since two golems can stand next to each other in them.)
[21:10] Wolfbane: He continues.
[21:11] Shadowcaller: He soon see a door in the distance, leading into a room, he can hear voices coming from it
[21:11] Wolfbane: He slows down and listens.
[21:12] Shadowcaller: The voices are in no language he can understand, it sounds like the same language his tormentor spoke
[21:13] Wolfbane: Do they sound angry?
[21:15] Shadowcaller: They sound quite busy, cheerful
[21:15] Shadowcaller: Drunk
[21:15] Wolfbane: Good
[21:15] Wolfbane: Promise slowly opens the door a crack and peeks in.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: He is met by a quite strong light, inside the room he catches a glimpse of a not very tall table and a not very tall man (midget) sitting by it, laughin at something with a cup in his hand. He wears gray clothes and what looks like to be a chainarmor underneath it
[21:18] Wolfbane: Is it the same man?
[21:18] Shadowcaller: No, he had black clothes
[21:19] Wolfbane: Could have changed. :P
[21:19] Wolfbane: Is he wearing any weapons?
[21:19] Shadowcaller: Well, its not him
[21:19] Shadowcaller: Yeah, a sword by his belt
[21:20] Wolfbane: Anything else of note? A way out?
[21:21] Shadowcaller: You need to open the door more to see that, also you can hear someone shouting from down below, the little drunken man don't seems to notice that however
[21:22] Wolfbane: Below the room?
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Yes
[21:22] Wolfbane: Promise croutches down a little bit and opens the door a little more.
[21:23] Shadowcaller: He can hear foots steps coming from down below
[21:24] Wolfbane: He looks back down the stairs.
[21:25] Shadowcaller: He can't see anything… yet. But inside the room he saw some other men at the same size as the first one, all dressed in gray clothes, sitting around a table laughing at some things they say
[21:25] Wolfbane: Were they all armed?
[21:26] Shadowcaller: He can't really see, but at least two of them are.
[21:27] Wolfbane: Is the room blocking the stairs?
[21:27] Shadowcaller: Blocking the stairs? The stairs end with the room.
[21:27] Wolfbane: hmm…
[21:28] Wolfbane: What do the footsteps sound like? Like a golem's?
[21:28] Shadowcaller: Yes, but other steps too
[21:29] Wolfbane: Is there something to hide behind in the room?
[21:29] Wolfbane: Near the entrance
[21:29] Shadowcaller: He can't see unless he opens the door more, right now he can't see anything of the other side
[21:30] Wolfbane: He does so.
[21:31] Shadowcaller: He can now see the other side of the room, but not any exit (he don't see very much of the other side however)
[21:31] Wolfbane: Anything that he could hide behind near him?
[21:34] Shadowcaller: Not what he can see, what he can see right now is a round table, four chairs around the table aswell as four midgets sitting on each chair, there is a torch in a holder at the side of the room aswell as a large barrel
[21:35] Wolfbane: Any specific smells?
[21:36] Shadowcaller: Alchohol, sweat, odor… not really anything special
[21:37] Wolfbane: *thinks*
[21:39] Wolfbane: Promise rushes in, torches the nearest man in the face and tries to steal his sword.
[21:39] Shadowcaller: (His face is turned away from you.)
[21:40] Wolfbane: Then he'll torch one of the two on the side of the table, and still grab the sword from the nearest. And if possible, keep the torch.
[21:41] Shadowcaller: So, he throws the torch at one of them facing towards him and then attempts to snatch the sword away from the midget closest to him?
[21:42] Wolfbane: pretty much
[21:43] Wolfbane: *hopes to find his clothes soon*
[21:43] Wolfbane: =P
[21:44] Shadowcaller: The torch misses both the midgets sitting on the side table as its not really the best throw weapon in the world. He dose manage to get the sword from the guy closest to him thought as he seems to have really slow reaction time. The others screams and draws their swords thought
[21:44] Shadowcaller: One of them kicks his chair towards Promise
[21:45] Wolfbane: Promise kicks it back and tries to slit the throat of the one nearest him.
[21:46] Shadowcaller: He have already managed to get away a bit from Promise, covered up by the others that now are trying to sorround him
[21:46] Wolfbane: Any objects near him?
[21:46] Happy: (then wouldn't one of the others be 'the one nearest him'?)
[21:47] Shadowcaller: (Well, I assumed he still meant the same dwarf.)
[21:47] Shadowcaller: (Did you? We can change that.)
[21:47] Wolfbane: (I had meant the same one I thought that he would still be trying to get up out of the seat)
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (Hm, let me take a shower… I need to get up early and stuff tomorrow but I will be back soon, we might be able to continue to about… 11.30 PM (my time.))
[21:48] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[21:49] Wolfbane: okay
[21:59] Shadowcaller: back
[21:59] Shadowcaller: Theother midgets are trying to push you back toward the door
[21:59] Shadowcaller: *the other
[22:00] Wolfbane: Promise lunges towards whichever one is closest to him, trying to stab it.
[22:01] Shadowcaller: The one you snatched the sword from is trying to make his way towards the door
[22:03] Shadowcaller: You ludge against him with suprising speed and strength, he just barely manages to parry but is thrown off balance, the other two ludges against you as you attack, one scratching up your arm quite bad, you feel a sharp sting of pain
[22:04] Wolfbane: Promise tries to grab the wrist of the one that scratched him with his free hand and hacks at his arm.
[22:08] Shadowcaller: You turn around, trying to grab and hack the one that scratched you, but is forced to parry another hit against you. The sword less midget have made it to the other side of the room now.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: You have now turned your back toward some other empty chairs and tables, just so you know. There are totally 3 tables in the room, but thankfully only one of them had midgets around it
[22:10] Wolfbane: So there were two doors?
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Well, you came from one door and there is a door on the other side, so yes
[22:12] Wolfbane: Promise grabs an empty chair and throws it at the group. He'll then try to stab whichever one is off balance the most.
[22:17] Shadowcaller: You take a step away from them and grab a little midget chair and then fling it at the closest midget that you then attempt to stab. He groans as you hit him, but the other two attacks you again making your scar collection a bit bigger
[22:17] Wolfbane: Are they between him and the other door?
[22:20] Shadowcaller: They are trying to place themselves between him and the door yes
[22:21] Wolfbane: Promise tries to run past them, leaping over them if he has to to get to the door.
[22:23] Shadowcaller: He dose manage to dash away from them and run toward the door that now is open as the fourth midget have just gone through it
[22:23] Wolfbane: He goes through, keeping the sword in front of him.
[22:27] Shadowcaller: He's suddenly outside, at some courtyard of some kind, the fourth midget running towards what appears to be a long house. The courtyard is sorrounded by massive walls. He and see yet another midget standing on top on the wall, this onw got a crossbow
[22:27] Shadowcaller: * one
[22:27] Shadowcaller: He shouts something
[22:27] Wolfbane: He runs as quickly as possible after the midget who is fleeing.
[22:28] Shadowcaller: *longhouse
[22:29] Shadowcaller: Promise is much quicker then the midget and manages to catch up with him just before he reaches the longhouse
[22:29] Wolfbane: He tries to trip the midget and stab him.
[22:32] Shadowcaller: He dose so, blood colors his sword and furless body red, strained by the midgets blood as you cut his head open. About the same time, you feel a sharp pain in your shoulder and can see a bolt sticking right trought it. You feel really intense pain
[22:33] Shadowcaller: You can hear more shouts as one midget comes from the room you just escaped from, the open door reveals that two golems just have entered that room
[22:33] Wolfbane: Is there a way out of the courtyard?
[22:35] Shadowcaller: Yes, there is a large archway in the wall, leading out to what appears to be a city down below
[22:36] Wolfbane: Is it open?
[22:37] Shadowcaller: No, there is a wrought-iron gate blocking the entrance
[22:38] Wolfbane: Is there any other exit?
[22:38] Shadowcaller: Not what he can see, there is some stairs leading up to the wall however
[22:39] Shadowcaller: And there is the long house, the entire fortress seems to have been built into the moutain that it stands on
[22:39] Shadowcaller: *upon
[22:40] Wolfbane: (I swear, you are /trying/ to kill me. =P)
[22:40] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[22:40] Wolfbane: Promise runs up the stairs, keeping an eye out for the crossbowman.
[22:41] Shadowcaller: He fires of another bolt, but misses this time which makes him to draw a sword and drop the crossbow, standing at the top of the stairs on the wall
[22:42] Wolfbane: Promise attempts to deflect the sword and knock him off of the wall if possible.
[22:44] Shadowcaller: He stands his ground, the stairs are quite small for a person of your size, they seems to only have been built for midgets
[22:45] Wolfbane: Promise climbs the stairs and does as stated above.
[22:45] Wolfbane: If need be, Promise will strike first.
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (Well, I think we need to end there as I need to wake up early tomorrow… but I promise we will continue this as soon as possible.)
[22:46] Wolfbane: Okay
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Also, there is some type of stone house upon the wall, just so you know, right above the archway
[22:46] Wolfbane: The gatehouse most likely
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Anyway, good night
[22:47] Wolfbane: Night
