The Great Mother

[18:58] Shadowcaller: So, the shape of the last oni lord just faded from sight, it asked you to meet it within the halls of skettis.
[18:58] Shadowcaller: And Helios said this:
[18:58] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
/It's rather that this being is under the opinion that humans and other races usage of magic and spirit energy is waking up the being that 'dreams' us./
/Quite intresting actually, but it's still a threat and must thus be removed./

[19:00] Wolfbane: Promise eventually pulls himself together and gives a slight sad smile to Hope. "We better get your wound patched up." He starts inspecting it
[19:02] Happy: She's probably lost a lot of blood by now, since she didn't bandage it right away.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: /Still, you need to hurry. The worm might be released any day now./
[19:05] Wolfbane: Promise will bandage it best he can.
[19:05] Shadowcaller: /And that thing would be in control of it… or technically the worm *is* it. In a way./
[19:07] Happy: /We're doing our best/
[19:07] Happy: (simone)
[19:07] Shadowcaller: /Yes… I really hope so./
[19:09] Shadowcaller: /Or all life will end./
[19:09] Shadowcaller: /No pressure./
[19:09] Happy: /You'll go on though, right?/
[19:09] Shadowcaller: /Perhaps. Thought the best thing I could do would be to aboid the worm./
[19:09] Shadowcaller: *avoid
[19:10] Shadowcaller: /Which wouldn't last forever./
[19:12] Happy: As soon as Hope is well enough to move, she'll ask Cessie to make a circle so they can send Goldie back to Zubera's realm.
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie nods "Okay, just give me a moment…."
[19:13] Wolfbane: brb
[19:13] Shadowcaller: She makes a circle, and Goldie is send to Zubera's realm.
[19:14] Happy: *insert tearful farewells*
[19:14] Shadowcaller: Simone is going to fight then?
[19:15] Wolfbane: back
[19:15] Happy: She's the witness for Helios.
[19:15] Wolfbane: Promise hugs Goldie tightly and promises her he'll explain what is going on later
[19:16] Happy: Besides, the battle with the worm is rther personal for Simone.
[19:17] Shadowcaller: Okay… want to leao to the next section?
[19:17] Shadowcaller: *leap
[19:20] Shadowcaller: Allyria will return to the others soon enough.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: You notice she have been lost a bit, her hair is all messy and her clothes are dirty.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: Cessie is pretty quiet.
[19:21] Shadowcaller: As is Michicora, but thats normal for her. She urges you to continue thought.
[19:21] Happy: And we do.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: Yes, you reach a small wolfen village built around a small hill.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: The wolfen here just avoid you as you enter the village, they appear to be farmers rather then hunters.
[19:23] Shadowcaller: They look smaller then other wolfen you have encountered.
[19:24] Shadowcaller: None of them speak any common, but they even avoid Promise and Hope when they ask around about Skettis.
[19:25] Aegnor: Aegnor would ask Cessie what's up at some point
[19:25] Shadowcaller: They mention a passage into the hill thought, something about dark ones and honorless monsters lurking in the ancient city.
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… there have been a lot of theories about how this world was created, how it works. I have debated it in school in fact. But just being told like this…"
[19:27] Shadowcaller: "Helios confirmed the story, I asked Simone."
[19:27] Shadowcaller: "Is this all just a dream?"
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "I know it shouldn't matter, but it kind of feel like it dose."
[19:30] Aegnor: 'A funny thought. Maybe whoever's dreaming is itself someone's dream.'
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "That dosen't make sense thought… not that this do either." She sigh.
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "It's too much to think about right now, I just want to end it all so I can collect my thoughts again."
[19:32] Happy: Hope never leaves Promise's side, either her arm around him, or holding hands.
[19:33] Wolfbane: Promise is obviously distraught about all of this, but is holding himself together.
[19:35] Shadowcaller: Just outside the village, there is a number of other hill tops. They don't look to be here naturally.
[19:38] Happy: Simone: "Do you sense any spirit activity?" *to aegnor*
[19:39] Aegnor: Does he
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (Or well, it's leaking out a bit from the hills.)
[19:40] Aegnor: 'A bit from the hills.'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: (if you go close enough, you can see there are entrances in some of the hills.)
[19:41] Shadowcaller: (and I would like more concentration on this as this is the last session almost >.>)
[19:41] Wolfbane: Does Promise smell anything off?
[19:41] Shadowcaller: He smell a lot of wolfen here.
[19:41] Shadowcaller: There is even inscriptions in wolfen runes over the entrances.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: They have been covered up with stones thought.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: And there are bones here, placed as a warning.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: They warn anyone from try to enter this place.
[19:46] Shadowcaller: One of the entrances seems recently used however, someone have removed the stone that blocked it.
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Faded inscriptions in wolfen rune covers the entrance, the smell of wolfen and death rises from it.
[19:47] Shadowcaller: There is a stone stair leading downwards, it looks to be made for wolfen rather then humans.
[19:48] Wolfbane: "Think this is the way in?"
[19:48] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "Well, duh."
[19:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Eh, looks like someone have been before us already… can you see what the inscroptions say Promise?"
[19:50] Shadowcaller: *inscriptions
[19:51] Wolfbane: His fur bristles a bit at Allyria's comment, but he dusts off the runes and tries to read them.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: It's hard to read, some of the words look a bit off, but he can get read parts of it "Here lies Skettis, honored home of -— Dawn wolf lies --- Fenris blesses us — population *wolfen number indicating a million wolfen*."
[19:56] Wolfbane: Promise's ears fall back a bit. "I think this is the way. There…there had been millions of us at one time apprently…"
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "Millions? How many are there now? There were just a few tribes back in Hestopia but I never saw anything of them…"
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "Hyrillian had a lot of wolfen…"
[19:59] Shadowcaller: "Most of them enslaved thought."
[20:00] Wolfbane: "Still, I doubt there are even /half/ a million of us left." He squeezes Hope's hand, trying to comfort himself.
[20:01] Happy: "This will be the rebirth. Remember New Gallion"
[20:01] Shadowcaller: "Seems unlikely, I mean, we have met more wolfen then any other race beside humans."
[20:02] Happy: (what seems unlikely?)
[20:03] Wolfbane: Promise shakes his head. "Most wolfen tribes only number a few dozen at most. We've only been to 4 wolfen villages, and those were exceptionally large, and half of those had mixed populations."
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (That there are only a half-million wolfen left.)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: "Still, there can't only be a half-million wolfen left in the world, you are so wide spread."
[20:07] Shadowcaller: "Every country we have gone to have had at least some wolfen. Well, except the tree."
[20:08] Happy: (the tree? you mean where we met Promise? :P )
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, there were no wolfen population there beside him.)
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (AKA, no permanent wolfen population.)
[20:09] Wolfbane: (He /had/ been wandering)
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (Exactly.)
[20:10] Shadowcaller: (And I wouldn't count one wolfen as a wolfen population >.>)
[20:10] Shadowcaller: (Otherwise you can start to count in the god population in every country:P)
[20:11] Happy: (but his tribe was also from the tree, I thought)
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (They were?)
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (I got the idea that they were from below the tree.)
[20:12] Wolfbane: (I had thought they were)
[20:12] Wolfbane: (From the tree I mean)
[20:12] Shadowcaller: (Since you know, you needed air ships to get up there.)
[20:13] Happy: (we didn't. We just climbed it. :p )
[20:13] Wolfbane: (And there are probably tunnels that go up the trunk anyways)
[20:13] Shadowcaller: (There weren't >.>)
[20:13] Shadowcaller: (The trunk was filled with worm.)
[20:14] Shadowcaller: (But they can't have been there.)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (Not during the fight at least.)
[20:15] Happy: (so I guess Promise climbed the tree at some point them?)
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, or went up with some ship.)
[20:17] Aegnor: (whatever)
[20:17] Happy: "Let's mopve on."
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Cessie nods. "Yes…"
[20:17] Wolfbane: Promise nods, grateful that Hope stopped him from saying more. And they move on
[20:18] Shadowcaller: (What? >.>)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: You walk down the stairs, you can see a set of footprints against the dust, human foot prints. Someone have been here recently.
[20:22] Shadowcaller: As you descend below the first set of stairs you find yourself at a market square.
[20:22] Shadowcaller: An entire city was hidden below the hills.
[20:23] Shadowcaller: The tunnels are filled with dust, but there are houses here, built into the mountain itself.
[20:23] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I wonder why they decided to build theit city underneath the ground… it dosen't make much sense."
[20:24] Shadowcaller: There isn't much left of the buildings, beside the stone they are made of, all tree seems to have rotted away in time
[20:27] Wolfbane: Promise draws his axe. "I doubt the person here in front of us is good…"
[20:28] Shadowcaller: Promise notices faded pictures of wolfen on the celling.
[20:28] Happy: Simone: /Any idea who that might be?/
[20:29] Shadowcaller: It looks like they are all taken from the city itself. Cubs running along the streets, wolfen farming in the deepths, wolfen selling and buying, wolfen fighting some type of enemy…
[20:30] Shadowcaller: /Let me double check… oh, yes. We need a body for Legias. I have one ready for him right now. I suspect your mystery person is Arik thought./
[20:32] Happy: (Arik leaves footprints?)
[20:33] Shadowcaller: (He dose.)
[20:33] Shadowcaller: (He got boots >.>)
[20:33] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, it's unessecary for a lich to have boots, but he's used to it.)
[20:36] Shadowcaller: /You need to summon me now Simone./
[20:37] Happy: "Helios ready for us to summon him."
[20:38] Shadowcaller: "Ugh, we never get off him do we?"
[20:38] Shadowcaller: *summons Helios*
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "I will only take a moment of your time…" The disembodied of Helios says.
[20:39] Shadowcaller: And a skeleton without a head appears within the circle.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: "Just put on the head… now find that body and kill it."
[20:41] Shadowcaller: Helios dissapears once again.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: *disappears
[20:44] Shadowcaller: *oni
[20:45] Wolfbane: I guess they put the head on it?
[20:47] Shadowcaller: Yeah… I guess… It's just that the participation isn't that high >.>
[20:47] Shadowcaller: Oh well, what do I expect…
[20:47] Wolfbane: Its just that I don't have the head. >.>
[20:47] Shadowcaller: (I know.)
[20:48] Happy: And Hope is just being all quiet and supportive
[20:49] Aegnor: The head is put
[20:49] Shadowcaller: Yeah…
[20:49] Shadowcaller: Well, you will feel it yourself when you GM some time
[20:49] Shadowcaller: Like rebo said
[20:49] Shadowcaller: -lot of text-
[20:49] Shadowcaller: Reply: Okay
[20:50] Aegnor: better than no reply
[20:50] Shadowcaller: Yes, but if there was no reply, there wouldn't even be a game
[20:50] Shadowcaller: And then the GM wouldn't need to waste any time on it >.>
[20:50] Aegnor: feel my pain in most WW games
[20:51] Aegnor: and Diplo
[20:51] Aegnor: and Risk
[20:51] Aegnor: *sends a huge battle plan and commentary on the situation while asking certain important things*
[20:51] Aegnor: five turns later
[20:51] Aegnor: 'What was it again?'
[20:51] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…)
[20:51] Shadowcaller: Anyhow…
[20:51] Wolfbane: Promise will continue to follow the trail after Legias is there. He also keeps an eye out for anything,
[20:54] Shadowcaller: The head is put on and the eyes start to shine in green. It looks at it's hands , trying to move each part of it's skeletal body. "We will serve you. We will speak if you wish. But we know we must haste now. We will be quiet for now." It says.
[20:55] Shadowcaller: Legias and Michicoras eyes can be seen in the dark cave. Promise, Hope and Aegnor can see a bit inside of here.
[20:55] Shadowcaller: You go along the streets where wolfen cubs once played in.
[20:56] Shadowcaller: *where wolfen cubs played tag.
[20:56] Shadowcaller: WHere wolfen merchants, priests and nobles lived.
[20:56] Happy: I guess Simone takes Aegnor's hand since she can't see in the dark
[20:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie lights a small light. "It's strange… being in a actual wolfen city."
[20:57] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "Pretty impressive, yeah."
[20:59] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I wonder why it just died?"
[20:59] Shadowcaller: Legias: "We are not sure you are correct human. We can feel life nearby."
[20:59] Wolfbane: Promise stops. "Life? Where?"
[21:01] Shadowcaller: The skeleton points out into a side street "There, *elven measurement indicating about 400 meters* that way."
[21:02] Wolfbane: Is it in the same direction as the tracks?
[21:02] Shadowcaller: Nope. It leads to another street.
[21:02] Wolfbane: "We can't check it out right now. We need to follow these tracks."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "Yes, we agree. We just felt it nessecary to point out that this place is not completely devoided of life as the discussion seemed to indicate wolfen."
[21:05] Shadowcaller: The the skeleton falls silent again as you move along in the main tunnel. Promise think he can hear noise in here, cubs laughing, wolfen merchants, payers to dawn wolf… or it's just the darkness bringing fantasy to life.
[21:06] Wolfbane: Promise blinks back a few tears, and it might be possible for Hope to smell, or at least sense, his sadness.
[21:11] Happy: She does, and nuzzles against his shoulder as they walk on.
[21:11] Shadowcaller: You pass by large halls, huge buildings made by wolfen, statues of Fenris, dawn wolf and many other others. There is a gallery of what appears to be wolfen Heroes. "First Blood: Dishonored by blood, led a suciderun and singel handly killed a mother spawn, sacrificed himself -
-"
[21:11] Shadowcaller: The rest can't be read.
[21:11] Shadowcaller: "Walk by clouds: Invented the telescope, great thinker."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "Yig-yig: Heliot, became a wolfen by blood as she killed the honorless Dark born."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: The rest of the statues are too old to be read, by they seems to have been very important to this people."
[21:14] Shadowcaller: There are fountains, sculptures… the wolfen was a high culture apperently.
[21:15] Shadowcaller: Eventually, Promise can feel active magic nearby.
[21:16] Wolfbane: "There's magic nearby." He tries to go to it's source.
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "We feel life as well… it's snuffed out."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: As Promise goes along the street, he can see the cold blue light of ice in a distant tunnel and the howl of a wolfen.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "Cursed things…" You hear a familiar voice…
[21:18] Shadowcaller: (Promise that is.)
[21:18] Wolfbane: (Arik?0
[21:18] Wolfbane: )*
[21:19] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[21:20] Shadowcaller: (He's back!:P)
[21:20] Wolfbane: Promise growls audibly. "It's Arik, and he's killing wolfen it seems."
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "What? That can't be right…" Cessie says. "There can't be anything living down here…"
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "More then insects that is."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: You go closer and can see Arik turning to you, he is looking exactly as you remember him. "Cessie! Finally, I was worried you wouldn't make it…"
[21:22] Shadowcaller: There are a number of dead dark-clothed wolfen around him.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: They wear skull masks.
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "A-arik… I- what are you doing here?"
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Helping you of course." He says with a smile and goes closer.
[21:25] Wolfbane: Promise is visibly shaking in anger. "Why did you kill them?"
[21:25] Happy: Simone: /What is he doing?/
[21:25] Shadowcaller: /Well, he's not here by my orders at least./
[21:26] Shadowcaller: /I had him put in World End, but apperently he must have left that place a long time ago if he's already here./
[21:27] Shadowcaller: Arik sigh "These are corrupted creatures helping that spirit you are fighting. You should relax Promise, it was some time since we met after all."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: *waits for others*
[21:32] Happy: Simone: "How does this help stop the worm?"
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "This creature is the source of the worm, it controls it in a way. The key to destroying the key to destroying the worm is to have it come to us you see?"
[21:33] Shadowcaller: *…
[21:33] Shadowcaller: (I am a very confused person.)
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "The key to destroy the worm is to have it come to us you see?"
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "The worm can't be destroyed by anything other then another legion, that you have right there." He points at Legias.
[21:36] Shadowcaller: Legias: "Yes, he is correct. We can communicate with the other."
[21:37] Wolfbane: (Seems Murska is doing Civ)
[21:37] Shadowcaller: (yeah.)
[21:38] Aegnor: (SC session start)
[21:38] Aegnor: (also doing Risk)
[21:38] Aegnor: (and some WW and reading and studying and eating)
[21:38] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I realized that.)
[21:38] Happy: "But Helios didn't expect you here."
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Well, I decided to help you out better then watch some cult leader…"
[21:40] Shadowcaller: *that help you out is better
[21:43] Happy: "No. You're here to try and get control of it. Aren't you?"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "What? What are you talking about Simone?"
[21:44] Wolfbane: Promise growls and raises his axe a bit, defensive. "We're going to kill it. I'm not letting anyone control it."
[21:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Arik for a while, but dosen't say anything.
[21:45] Shadowcaller: "You and that axe?" Arik replies
[21:45] Shadowcaller: "Please, you couldn't even kill it's guards."
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "Magic is going to solve this as usual. You just try to stand back, I rather not wanting any of you getting hurt…"
[21:47] Wolfbane: "You /are/ trying to control it, aren't you? You're not supposed to be here at all."
[21:48] Aegnor: 'When has magic ever solved anything?'
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "Since it was invented?"
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "I am not trying to control the worm, I am just here to make sure none of you are getting killed while fighting that thing."
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "That would be very unfortunate and not anything I will allow."
[21:50] Shadowcaller: Michicora takes a step backwards, Hope notices how she have her hand on her knife.
[21:56] Wolfbane: He scoffs. "Its not like you particularly cared for me anyways."
[21:56] Happy: Simone: "You're a little behindhand on information, Arik. It seems magic is destabilizing existence."
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /Cessie cares for you apperently…/ Arik says telepathy.
[21:56] Shadowcaller: (To Promise alone.)
[21:57] Shadowcaller: Arik shrugs "Really? Well thats too bad. Must fix that somehow."
[21:58] Wolfbane: "So it's only Cessie you care about then?" He doesn't bother to hide his answers.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: /Ah, what a misstake, wolfen and subelty…/
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /You thought you could just rush in here and kill that thing didn't you?/
[21:59] Wolfbane: "Arik, stop with the idiotic telepathy and just talk."
[22:00] Shadowcaller: He smiles "What? Is having a privat conversation something that bothers your mind Promise?"
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "You remind me of those Norhold fanatics, they were also a reason I left Worlds End."
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "They had no love for my kind."
[22:04] Wolfbane: "It's not the private conversation that bothers me. Its your smug tone that you take when you do."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "Ah… well, I'm here to help. I suggest you let your personal feelings aside here Promise."
[22:09] Wolfbane: He growls. "In case you haven't noticed, I have more in this than you do. I /won't/ set aside my feelings."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "So… what are you going to do then? Attack me?"
[22:09] Happy: "We're here to release the Dawn Wolf." Hope says.
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "…right. Well, if killing that creature will do that, so am I."
[22:12] Wolfbane: Promise lowers his axe a bit, but is still obviously suspicious. "From what I gather, it's possessing what is left of her."
[22:13] Shadowcaller: "Yes, and we are going to kill it. Simpel."
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "Can we go now? Or should we disscuss what we are doing even longer?"
[22:15] Happy: "Fine. Let's go."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "Excellent."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "We should kill him…" Michicora whispers to Hope as Arik takes the lead, going deeper into the tunnels. Cessie and Allyria are avoiding the wolfen corpses like the plague.
[22:18] Happy: Hope just shakes her head.
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "After."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: You go over a bridge, down below you can see overgrown fields, some type of plant that grows down here apperently.
[22:20] Happy: Hope doesn't say anything. After… she doesn't think she'll be in any shape to do anything after.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you can see two wolfen at the end of the bridge, they are both wearing dark robes and skull helmets.
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Halt… you are… not… allowed…."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Hm." One of the wolfen collapses, shaking.
[22:22] Shadowcaller: The other one looks at his companion that stops shaking pretty quickly and then at you. "Please…"
[22:24] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks pretty shaken up, but not for the wolfen Arik just killed.
[22:25] Wolfbane: Promise growls and shoves past the lich to get closer to the other wolfen. "Let us pass, we won't hurt you."
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "I… can't…"
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Promise notices how it's shaking.
[22:26] Wolfbane: Like the other was?
[22:26] Shadowcaller: No
[22:27] Shadowcaller: This is weary shaking.
[22:27] Wolfbane: "Why not?"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "Can't… goddess… blood…"
[22:28] Happy: "Cessie… can you…?"
[22:28] Happy: /Hope
[22:29] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Hope, she looks a lot more tired then you remebered here "What?"
[22:29] Shadowcaller: *her
[22:29] Happy: "Make them sleep," she whispers.
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Cessie nods and lifts her hand. The wolfen falls down the ground, sleeping.
[22:30] Wolfbane: Promise gently moves it to the side. "Thank you Cessie." He gives a glare to Arik.
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Arik ignores him and makes a gesture, the dead wolfen raises from the ground slowly…
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "One less soldier to sacrifice in the end thought, but lets move on." Arik steps throught the archway the two wolfen guarded, the dead wolfen following him.
[22:35] Happy: "Don't you dare kill another wolfen," Hope hisses.
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "What? So you can die instead of the ones I kill? These ones are deeply corrupted anyway. You should see how they look underneath those robes."
[22:39] Wolfbane: Promise growls, obviously a hair away from lashing out at him. "He didn't attack us, yet you killed him out of hand. And /if/ they are corrupted, they probably can't control their own actions."
[22:39] Happy: "We can stop them without hurting htem. Cessie,please, can you talk some sense into him?"
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "They can't be saved Promise."
[22:40] Shadowcaller: Cessie glances at Hope, Arik is looking at her as well. "I-" She says before she is interrupted by Arik.
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "Cessie, these wolfen can't be saved, they have been deeply corrupted, most likely been born that way."
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "You can't save them any more then the undead I control."
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "And for every soldier I have under my command, the less chance of any of you dying."
[22:42] Happy: "At least give us a chance to try."
[22:42] Happy: "Maybe afterwards…"
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "Your naive."
[22:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Please… your strong enough Arik, maybe we can do without them for now?"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Cessie, we have no idea what we will encounter down there, it's just for our safety. I don't want anything to harm you or your friends down there. Better if we just sacrifice some undead."
[22:45] Happy: "You aren't sacrificing undead, you're killing people"
[22:46] Shadowcaller: Cessie: /Hope, I can handle this. I won't let him do this, but don't make it worse. I don't want you attacking each other…/
[22:48] Shadowcaller: Arik: "These aren't 'people', they are just tools for this spirit."
[22:49] Happy: /Okay… just please stop him… this is more than Promise can take./
[22:49] Shadowcaller: (I already regret getting rid of Arik, so much RP lost…:P)
[22:49] Wolfbane: Promise grits his teeth, knowing better than to say anything at the moment or he'd lash out at Arik.
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Please Arik, Hope and Promise don't want this. If you keep doing that, they are going to turn on you, and then we won't even fight the spirit."
[22:50] Happy: Hope squeezes his paw tightly.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Arik sigh "Fine, it's their loss."
[22:51] Wolfbane: Heop will feel him shaking in anger.
[22:51] Wolfbane: Hope*
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "If they die down there, it's not my fault."
[22:51] Shadowcaller: The undead wolfen collapses on the floor.
[22:51] Shadowcaller: And Arik continues into the tunnel.
[22:52] Happy: Hope kneels by the Wolfen and speaks a quick prayer, and lays a hand on his head. Then follows with Promise.
[22:54] Wolfbane: Promise will wait for Hope before moving on.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: You go even deeper into city, this passage dosen't appear to be a part of the city.
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you hear a whining sound.
[22:56] Shadowcaller: It's coming from the room ahead.
[22:57] Happy: On we go.
[22:57] Wolfbane: Promise will try to move to the front.
[22:58] Shadowcaller: You see two yellow eyes in the dark, a wolfen. It looks a bit like Goldie, with golden fur.
[22:58] Happy: Hope is right by his side.
[22:59] Shadowcaller: It looks up at you as you come closer, and lets out a whine.
[23:00] Wolfbane: "Hello?"
[23:00] Shadowcaller: You notice it's all bloodly.
[23:00] Shadowcaller: *bloody
[23:00] Wolfbane: He's speaking Wolfen
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "Help… me…"
[23:01] Shadowcaller: It replies in wolfen.
[23:01] Wolfbane: Promise moves forward, trying to get a closer look. "What happened?"
[23:02] Shadowcaller: He notices dark tentacles coming out from it's back…
[23:02] Shadowcaller: They looks like to be made out of shadow, the same shadow the Oni was made up of.
[23:02] Shadowcaller: *off
[23:03] Wolfbane: of* >.>
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Hm, is it?
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Eh… anyway
[23:03] Wolfbane: oni was made up of*
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Yes, we get it
[23:04] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1YmS_VDvMY&feature=related)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1YmS_VDvMY&feature=related
[23:04] Wolfbane: Promise kneels beside it and tries to comfort it a bit by rubbing her(?) ears gently. "How?"
[23:05] Wolfbane: (I can't follow that link for some reason)
[23:05] Shadowcaller: Tears are flowing down her cheeks. She lets out a howl as he touches her.
[23:05] Shadowcaller: And jerks backwards.
[23:05] Happy: "Dawn Wolf?"
[23:06] Shadowcaller: She whimpers again, apperently too much in pain to even reply.
[23:07] Happy: (it's a silly link)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: (It is.)
[23:08] Happy: Hope tries to use her healing power to reach inside her and dull the pain.
[23:10] Shadowcaller: SHe gets a surge back, something is blocking her energy and is trying to enter her insted.
[23:10] Shadowcaller: *instead
[23:12] Wolfbane: Is Promise aware of this in any way?
[23:12] Shadowcaller: Well, Hope might jerk back/look shocked etc…
[23:16] Happy: She does. Does it succeed?
[23:16] Shadowcaller: Nope.
[23:16] Wolfbane: "What is it?"
[23:16] Shadowcaller: The wolfen girl runs away.
[23:16] Shadowcaller: Crying.
[23:17] Happy: "I couldn't heal her. Spomething blocked me."
[23:17] Shadowcaller: (Cool word… Spomething.)
[23:18] Happy: :P
[23:18] Shadowcaller: Spomething attacked me!
[23:19] Shadowcaller: Arik sigh "Who cares, let's go on."
[23:20] Happy: Hope growls at him, sounding inhuman at that moment."
[23:20] Wolfbane: Promise growls. "/I/ care/" He turns to Hope. "Are you alright?"
[23:20] Happy: "Yes."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "Hey, we are going the same direction as her."
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "You will find that corrupted wolfen sooner or later…"
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Arik goes on, and I guess you follow. Soon you reach a large room, as you enter many yellow eyes turn to you.
[23:22] Shadowcaller: Many cubs, it different stages of corruption…
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/Parasite_by_suppafurry.jpg)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/Parasite_by_suppafurry.jpg
[23:22] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/faded_agony_by_SanguineJustice.png)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/faded_agony_by_SanguineJustice.png
[23:23] Shadowcaller: They flee from you as you enter.
[23:24] Shadowcaller: Going into houses and small passages around the hall.
[23:24] Wolfbane: Promise blinks back a few tears at the sights. "Lets…lets just keep going."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Agreed."
[23:26] Happy: Tears are streaming down Hope's cheeks.
[23:27] Shadowcaller: You continue, until you reach a bridge… there are two torches inside the room. On the other side of the bridge are dozens of wolfen in dark robes and a huge wolf looking like this:
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/Tentacled__Thing_by_Raven_Blood_13.jpg)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/Tentacled__Thing_by_Raven_Blood_13.jpg
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Err ignore that.)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Feel free to emote.)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Then that happens.)
[23:29] Happy: They would keep mving, through their tears.

[23:32] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
Okay
Well, then that happens.
"Turn… back." The large wolf says.

[23:33] Happy: "No."
[23:33] Shadowcaller: You can't see whats below the bridge, it's pure darkness.
[23:33] Wolfbane: Promise lifts his axe. "We're not turning back."
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "Then… we must… kill you."

[23:35] Shadowcaller: Wolfbane säger:
Promise lifts his axe. "We're not turning back."
Shadowcaller säger:
"Then… we must… kill you."
The bridge is really thin and there is no railing at all.

[23:36] Happy: Hope takes out her bow and notches a spirit arrow.
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "Can I kill them now?" Arik asks
[23:39] Wolfbane: Promise closes his eyes, tears running freely. "If…if you can make it painless for them." His heart wrentches as he says it.
[23:40] Shadowcaller: Arik dosen't seem touched "Ah great. I take no joy in pain."
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Suddenly a group of the masked wolfen are dragged out over the edge, they howl as they fall down into the darkness down below.
[23:41] Wolfbane: "I said Painless!"
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "Thats painless, they won't feel a thing once they reach the bottom."
[23:43] Happy: "Instant and painless," Hope snarls.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: This seems to anger Arik "Seriously! These *things* are trying to kill us!"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "And we can't go around playing gentel with the world at risk!"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: *gentle
[23:45] Wolfbane: "They are innocent and are being manipulated! They aren't doing this of their own volition."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "They aren't innocent… you are so naive."
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Nothing is innocent in this world."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: The large wolf howls, but remains at it's position, the whole hall shakes a bit thought.
[23:47] Happy: Hope looses her arrow at the large wolf
[23:47] Shadowcaller: It hits it and it backs away "The great mother… will kill you… now…"
[23:48] Happy: She notches another arrow.
[23:49] Shadowcaller: Suddenly a great tentacle emerges from the deepths and grabs Hope's leg.
[23:49] Shadowcaller: It's intending to drag her down into the abyss
[23:50] Wolfbane: Promise chops at the tentacle with his axe
[23:51] Shadowcaller: It goes down again, but another tentacle comes up and grabs Promise leg.
[23:51] Wolfbane: He'll lash at that one as well
[23:51] Shadowcaller: A piece of the first tentacle remains around Hope's leg.
[23:52] Happy: Hope blasts the source of the tentacles with spirit energy
[23:52] Shadowcaller: Before Promise can lower the axe, the tentacle have already dragged his leg, making him lose balance, he falls down on the floor.
[23:52] Happy: (sure would be nice if we had other party members with us…. )
[23:52] Shadowcaller: Then Hope's blast hits it and it retreats back down.
[23:52] Shadowcaller: (Indeed:P)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: ((But this was suprise round.)
[23:53] Shadowcaller: (And I assumed Hope, Promise and Arik was closest to the edge.)
[23:53] Happy: (yes, they would have been)
[23:54] Shadowcaller: *were
[23:54] Happy: "Aegnor, where is the Dawn Wolf?"
[23:54] Shadowcaller: (He can feel a great source of energy down below…)

[15:17] Shadowcaller: So, Promise and Hope was just attacked by tentacles coming from the deepts, the suprise round ends and Promise have fall down on the ground beacuse of the tentacles. Hope asked Aegnor where Dawn Wolf was and he replied she was down below. On the other side of the bridge, the masked wolfen and the tentacle wolf are still blocking your path, but they don't dare to cross the bridge just yet.
[15:19] Shadowcaller: No other tentacles are in sight, but they might rise from the deept's at any moment.
[15:21] Shadowcaller: Arik steps closer to the edge, Promise can feel a lot of active magic about him.
[15:22] Shadowcaller: "Can't be that deep… if she's right underneath us…"
[15:23] Shadowcaller: "You… shall… not pass…" The tentacle wolf quotes gandalf, sort of:P
[15:24] Happy: "We need a way down."
[15:24] Wolfbane: Is Promise still being dragged?
[15:24] Shadowcaller: "Easy, we fly down. Or collapse the celling on top of her."
[15:24] Shadowcaller: (nope.)
[15:24] Shadowcaller: (The tentacles have retreated for the time being.)
[15:25] Wolfbane: Then he'll get up. "We can't be sure that collapsing the roof would kill it."
[15:25] Shadowcaller: "It would weaken her at the very least."
[15:25] Happy: "Cast fly on Promise. He can carry me down, and we'll take care of her."
[15:26] Shadowcaller: "You two alone against a huge spirit? I'm not letting you commit suicide."
[15:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "We need to work together…"
[15:27] Happy: "She's our responsibility."
[15:27] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "It is powerful… but no where near a spirit god's power."
[15:28] Shadowcaller: Arik makes a nonchalant gesture "And my responsibility is to ensure you don't kill yourself."
[15:29] Wolfbane: "Then give us magic shields. I know you can."
[15:29] Shadowcaller: "You do realize that magic isn't exactly effective on you Promise?"
[15:29] Wolfbane: (Oops, sorry, forgot that part. >.>)
[15:30] Wolfbane: "Then shield /her/. The armor should protect me against most spirit things."
[15:31] Shadowcaller: "Oh come now, we need a better plan then that!"
[15:31] Shadowcaller: (I'm going to wait for Murska here…)
[15:33] Aegnor: So there's a couple enemies who don't want us to go over the bridge?
[15:33] Shadowcaller: Yes.
[15:34] Aegnor: 'Why do those guys want to stop us from going over the bridge if our target is down there? Maybe there's a better route?'
[15:34] Shadowcaller: "Maybe they don't know that we can fly?"
[15:35] Shadowcaller: (I mean… even if the target is down there, most would assume they just don't leap down.)
[15:36] Shadowcaller: "It's either flying down there or go over the bridge."
[15:39] Shadowcaller: "I doubt there are more routes down to a tomb, it's not like they need escape exits."
[15:43] Shadowcaller: (Maybe we should wait?)
[15:44] Wolfbane: (For what?)
[15:44] Shadowcaller: (Well… you to think better or soemthing?:P)
[15:44] Shadowcaller: *something
[15:45] Aegnor: 'Then what is there over that bridge that they don't want us to get to?'
[15:45] Shadowcaller: "The passage down to the tomb I assume."
[15:46] Aegnor: 'Which is exactly what we need, right?'
[15:46] Shadowcaller: "Yes…? Unless we fly down, but that might be risky with all the tentacles."
[15:47] Aegnor: 'So let's go.'
[15:48] Shadowcaller: (OVer the bridge or down fly down the edge?)
[15:49] Happy: "Let's at least use a rope."
[15:49] Happy: "in case one of us is knocked off the bridge."
[15:50] Shadowcaller: "We could just fly over the edge if needed."
[15:50] Shadowcaller: "Those tentacles will be aiming for the bridge surely."
[15:51] Happy: Hope snarls in frustration. "Let's just do something!"
[15:52] Shadowcaller: "Ah, well…" Arik steps over the bridge.
[15:52] Aegnor: (Flying is risky, going over the bridge is not. I don't understand the question.)
[15:53] Shadowcaller: (Well, flying down below.. yeah, I confused the words there as always.)
[15:53] Shadowcaller: (Let me make a map.)
[15:53] Shadowcaller: Or maybe not…
[15:53] Shadowcaller: The room is pretty simple, two edges, a bridge between them.
[15:54] Aegnor: We take one of the two ways and get down.
[15:55] Shadowcaller: Right… as Arik is stepping over the bridge more tentacles rises from the deepths and the masked wolfen start moving over the bridge as well.
[15:56] Shadowcaller: Arik freezes one of the larges tentacles while Cessie fries two of them with an fireball.
[15:56] Shadowcaller: Michicora stands ready to cross.
[15:56] Wolfbane: (Wait! I've seen this movie! Arik ends up cutting the bridge to drop everyone into croc infested waters! =D )
[15:56] Shadowcaller: Allyria is in the back of the room, a bit unsure what to do.
[15:57] Shadowcaller: (More of a tentacle infested hole thought…)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: Legias stands by, unmoving.
[15:58] Wolfbane: Promise will move across the bridge, if possible he'll get to the front to defend everyone as he can't do as much against the tentacles. And at least he can make sure the wolfen die quickly.
[15:59] Shadowcaller: Arik is busy killing all the tentacles emerging, as Promise manages to pass Arik, he see a masked wolfen rushing towards him.
[16:00] Shadowcaller: It appears to be lost in some fanatical rage, it leaps for him, completely unarmed.
[16:01] Wolfbane: He'll swing the axe in an overhand motion, trying to bring it down on the top of it's head as it jumps.
[16:01] Wolfbane: If it works, it'll be quick and near painless
[16:02] Shadowcaller: He can see black/red blood splash out of the holes of the helmet as his axe connects with the wolfens head.
[16:02] Shadowcaller: It falls down into the abyss without a sound.
[16:04] Shadowcaller: The next wolfen appears to be a lot calmer thought, it calmly walks towards him, the other behind it needing to wait. You not sure this even is a wolfen, it looks more undead then anything, and those eyes…
[16:04] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/133.jpg)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/133.jpg
[16:05] Happy: HOpe is right behind Promise. She sends a blast of holy energy at the creature.
[16:05] Shadowcaller: It steps backwards, misses a step, thats all it takes.
[16:07] Shadowcaller: You can see it slide if the ledge, it drops it axe and it's claws are desperatly trying to get a grip of the birdge, it makes claw marks all over it.
[16:07] Shadowcaller: *bridge
[16:07] Shadowcaller: "Get over the birdge, I can't hold them back much longer!" Arik yells.
[16:08] Shadowcaller: The wolfen are still coming over to meet you from the other side.
[16:08] Wolfbane: Promise moves forward, aiming at the next wolfen's neck
[16:08] Wolfbane: (brb, brother called for breakfast)
[16:09] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[16:18] Shadowcaller: (Ugh… sorry if it didn't work out:S)
[16:22] Happy: ?
[16:22] Shadowcaller: (Well, the end…)
[16:25] Shadowcaller: (But then again, you had a long time away from the game. I guess it's hard to concentrate then.)
[16:30] Happy: … you're giving up already? :P
[16:31] Shadowcaller: (What? No, but just judging by the current response…)
[16:32] Happy: I'm very interested. It's just that Hope isn't going to say anything, and Simone isn't going to do anything. Sorry if that made you think I didn't like it. :(
[16:33] Shadowcaller: >.> Well, I guess… it's just that I can't seem to get Murska involved, but I guess he's busy with 15 things as usual.)
[16:35] Aegnor: yes
[16:35] Shadowcaller: (Ugh, see, the reason I asked if you weren't busy is since I wanted you to be involved.)
[16:36] Shadowcaller: (Otherwise this would have been no differance from last night.)
[16:36] Shadowcaller: (If you had told me, we could have waited Murska.)
[16:36] Happy: moar Aegnor! moar Aegnor!
[16:38] Aegnor: it doesn't really matter whether I'm busy or not, just that I can't get myself to actually do anything about this so I can always find something else to concentrate on
[16:40] Happy: brb
[16:41] Shadowcaller: *sigh* Well, Aegnor will get a lot of lines in the end
[16:43] Happy: back
[16:43] Wolfbane: back as well
[16:43] Shadowcaller: Okay…
[16:43] Happy: Maybe we need to help Murska get into Aegnor's mindset
[16:44] Happy: After all, we're killing the creature that's responsible for the destruction of the elves
[16:44] Happy: His family
[16:44] Shadowcaller: (How?:P) Promise swings his axe and draws black blood, the wolfen falls backwards and drags two of his own kind with him into the abyss as he is trying to cling on to their robes.
[16:45] Happy: flashback scene?
[16:46] Shadowcaller: (Sounds like a thing I planned for… you'll see.)
[16:48] Shadowcaller: There are at least a dozen wolfen between Promise and the other edge, and the tentacles appears to eb starting to warp themselves around the bridge at Cessie's and Arik's side. Michicora is right behind Hope. Allyria is still with Aegnor.
[16:49] Aegnor: So we're going over the bridge I suppose
[16:49] Aegnor: Aegnor fights with ranged.
[16:50] Shadowcaller: It's not very effective against the tentacles >.>
[16:50] Shadowcaller: But I suppose he aims for the wolfen.
[16:51] Happy: Simone is with Aegnor
[16:51] Shadowcaller: A wolfen on the other side of the edge is hit in the throat by Aegnors arrow and falls down into the abyss.
[16:51] Happy: Hope is using spirit blasts
[16:51] Shadowcaller: The horde on the other side of the edge lacks rnaged weapons and die one by one by the groups ranged weapons.
[16:51] Shadowcaller: *ranged
[16:51] Wolfbane: Promise will aim at the next one's neck as well.
[16:52] Shadowcaller: There is no cover on the other side.
[16:52] Shadowcaller: The next wolfen ducks under the axe however and tries to bull-rush Promise.
[16:54] Wolfbane: He'll try to move to the side and out of it's way before cutting at it's back, to try and sever the spine.
[16:54] Shadowcaller: Suddenly Allyria screams as a tentacle somehow have managed to grab her by the foot.
[16:54] Happy: Simone throws a knife at it.
[16:55] Shadowcaller: She is quickly dragged towards the edge.
[16:55] Shadowcaller: The knife dosen't have much effect on the tentacle.
[16:55] Shadowcaller: It's one of the larger one.
[16:56] Shadowcaller: * ones
[16:57] Aegnor: Aegnor grabs Allyria to try and stop her.
[16:59] Shadowcaller: Aegnor gets a grip around her, but he can feel the strength the tentacle is pulling into her, she looks up at him with genuine fear in her eyes. She is nearly over the edge when he grabbed her.
[17:00] Shadowcaller: The wolfen hits Promise partly, he is close to lose his balance, the bridge isn't that large. Another wolfen come as the first one falsl over to the other side of Promise, near the edge.
[17:00] Aegnor: Aegnor breathes fire on the tentacle
[17:01] Happy: Hope tries to steady Promise from behind, while blasting the next attacker.
[17:01] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor…" Allyria is holind into him for her life, the tentacle surges back as Aegnor breathes fire on it. She was safe.
[17:01] Shadowcaller: *holding.
[17:02] Aegnor: He drags her up from the edge.
[17:02] Shadowcaller: She is shaking with fear.
[17:02] Wolfbane: Promise will try to sweep his axe at the first wolfen's legs to get him to fall off the edge. (Sheesh, just put Allyria in an anime school-girl outfit while you're at it. :P )
[17:03] Shadowcaller: (Hey…)
[17:03] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, I need food.)
[17:03] Happy: xD
[17:03] Shadowcaller: (brb.)
[17:05] Wolfbane: (Hey, I wasn't the only one thinking it. >.>)
[17:06] Aegnor: 'Are you all right?'
[17:20] Shadowcaller: (Well, I might have killed her right there >.>) "Yeah… just a bit… shocked. It came a bit sudden, paniced."
[17:20] Wolfbane: (You actually were going to?)
[17:21] Shadowcaller: (I might have.)
[17:21] Shadowcaller: (Be glad I didn't use my second idea…)
[17:23] Shadowcaller: The second wolfen is thrown off balance, falling forward as Hope blasts the other wolfen that fllas backwards, knocking each other off the ledge.
[17:24] Shadowcaller: Suddenly Promise feels something around his foot and he is dragged off the ledge. At the same time Simone is attacked by two tentacles at once, of of them grips her wrist (THe weak point!) tne the other grips her leg.
[17:24] Wolfbane: (He's actually dragged off completely?0
[17:24] Wolfbane: )*
[17:25] Shadowcaller: (He have no support right now, yes.)
[17:27] Wolfbane: He'll try to grab the edge, likely dropping the axe if he has to
[17:27] Shadowcaller: Allyria gets up and tries to get steady. Sending a spirit blast of sort against the nearest tentacle.
[17:27] Happy: Hope tries to keep him from falling.
[17:28] Shadowcaller: He gets into the same situation of the creature Hope sent off the ledge, Hope grabs into him, but a wolfen is charing against her from the side. She can feel the tentacle pulling Promise, it's a small one, but she can still feel it's pull, if she would let go…
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (OMG, Torish and female robot bard are tied again!)
[17:29] Wolfbane: (OMG! SC just said OMG!)
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (Yes…?)
[17:29] Happy: She won't let go. Even if it means she goes over with him.
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (It was silly obviously.)
[17:30] Aegnor: Aegnor runs to help Simone. Gah, slimey tentacles off the girls!
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (What is Simone doing?)
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (There is to tentacle rape:P)
[17:30] Shadowcaller: *no
[17:30] Shadowcaller: (Especially not against minors… *shuts brain off*)
[17:31] Shadowcaller: (*restarts parts of it*)
[17:31] Shadowcaller: The charging wolfen is hit by an ice blast and is knocked backwards.
[17:32] Shadowcaller: The tentacles pulls Simone over the edge. Fire start to consume some of incoming tentacles that goes against Simone and Promise.
[17:33] Shadowcaller: Michicora is cutting off a bunch of tentacles going agianst her.
[17:33] Happy: Simone is hacking at the tentacle that has her by the waist, trying to do enough damage to weaken it.
[17:33] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Get off the… gah… " Arik flies of the bridge, freezing more tentacles. that tries to attack them.
[17:34] Happy: unless i was too slow typing and she's dead now -.-
[17:34] Shadowcaller: Nope >.>
[17:34] Shadowcaller: The tentacle lets go off Simone and she manages to grab the edge.
[17:35] Wolfbane: How is Promise doing? Still being dragged off?
[17:35] Happy: Simone clambers back up. High dex ftw.
[17:36] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "Aegnor, I can… I think I can disturb her. Just go without me okay?"
[17:36] Shadowcaller: Hope and Promise are still in the same situation.
[17:36] Shadowcaller: *the spirit
[17:36] Happy: Hope blasts the tentacle.
[17:36] Wolfbane: Promise will try to dig his hind claws into the tentacle to get it to let go
[17:37] Shadowcaller: It's impossible the blast the tentacle from her position.
[17:37] Happy: Then she tries to help Promise keep his balance.
[17:38] Aegnor: 'No way.' What's the situation? How are we positioned and how hard is it to get to the other end of the bridge?
[17:38] Shadowcaller: Suddenly the tentacle wolf comes charging against her, it's slow, trying to grip into the stone as it moves. The tentacle lets go of Promie, but Hope can see more tentacles emerging from the deepths… (I make a map…)
[17:42] Shadowcaller: (Link: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/edge.jpg)http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/edge.jpg

[17:45] Shadowcaller: (Someone needs to stop her!)

[17:46] Shadowcaller: (DnD fans VS WH 40K fans, it can't end well.)
[17:47] Aegnor: so what we need to do now is to save Promise and use that gigantic blob as a bowling ball
[17:48] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[17:48] Shadowcaller: The giant blof is the large tentacle wolf >.>)
[17:48] Shadowcaller: *blob
[17:48] Happy: Well Hopefully Cessie or Michi will shoot at the tentacle since Hope can't. v.v
[17:48] Wolfbane: v.v
[17:49] Shadowcaller: Well, the tentacles let go of Promise, she can haul her up now.
[17:49] Wolfbane: Promise is /trying/ to get back up on the bridge
[17:49] Happy: I thought I killed the tentacle wolf.
[17:49] Shadowcaller: Ah, well he gets up, the tentacles are fried by Cessie's fireball.
[17:49] Shadowcaller: No, it can take more then one shoot >.>
[17:50] Happy: She sends another blast at it, and they keep moving
[17:50] Wolfbane: Please tell me the axe is on the bridge. <.<
[17:51] Shadowcaller: Yes:P
[17:51] Shadowcaller: Oh no wait, a tentacle suddenly grabs on to it and drags it down into the deepths for some reason…:P
[17:51] Shadowcaller: /joke
[17:52] Shadowcaller: Allyria: "No, I can enter spirit from and disturb her Aegnor, it will go quick."
[17:53] Wolfbane: (he's lost two weapons, both of which were extremely important to him. I wouldn't have been surprised)
[17:53] Wolfbane: >.>
[17:54] Happy: [17:50] Happy: She sends another blast at it, and they keep moving
[17:54] Aegnor: 'And what happens to you?'
[17:54] Shadowcaller: The tentacle wolf bleeds from the blast, but dosen't show any signs of stopping, the tentacles that are in it wrigglies voilently as it moves.
[17:54] Shadowcaller: "I'm not going to sacrifice myself Aegnor, I will be safe, I promise."
[17:56] Shadowcaller: Michicora is retreating backwards, into Hope and Promise, she is watching the edges carefully for more tentacles.
[17:58] Shadowcaller: *wriggles
[17:58] Wolfbane: Promise will move closer to the wolf thing, axe defensive. He'll strike at any part of it that gets close.
[17:58] Shadowcaller: It stops as it comes closer to Promise, and then it leaps towards him in a roar of fanatical hatred.
[18:00] Shadowcaller: A huge tentacle, larger then any of the others comes up at Aegnors side, before he even have time to react, it smashes the bridge behind them.
[18:00] Wolfbane: Promise drops flat against the ground to let it jump over him, his axe is raised to strike it's underside as it goes past.
[18:00] Shadowcaller: Then it's leaping against Hope and Michicora.
[18:01] Happy: Hope holds her sword to have it impale itself, like she did in the duel.
[18:01] Shadowcaller: Promises axe strikes it's underside with exposes even more tentacles.
[18:01] Shadowcaller: *that exposes
[18:01] Aegnor: Assumedly the bridge being smashed means the part they're standing on is going to crumble
[18:01] Shadowcaller: Yes.
[18:02] Aegnor: Aegnor grabs Allyria and runs towards the other end
[18:02] Happy: Simone runs as well, easily balancing.
[18:02] Shadowcaller: Simone can feel the cracks spreading as well. The huge tentacle isn't done thought, it comes towards them
[18:03] Happy: [18:01] Happy: Hope holds her sword to have it impale itself, like she did in the duel.
[18:03] Shadowcaller: Hope impales the wolf the maw stopping just inches away from her, tentacles are going up along her blade.
[18:03] Aegnor: blaaaast
[18:03] Shadowcaller: The tentacles from it's underbelly is grabbing Promise.
[18:04] Wolfbane: Promise will try to kick the wolf off the bridge.
[18:04] Happy: She swings the sword/wolf combo out over the void and blasts it off the sword
[18:04] Aegnor: Aegnor, Simone and Allyria oughta be reaching Cessie
[18:04] Aegnor: (Just drop the darn sword!)
[18:05] Shadowcaller: The wolf falls down into the abyss as more tentacles reach out for them, Cessie, Aegnor, Allyria, Simone and Michicora is right behind Hope now.
[18:05] Wolfbane: Promise will stand and help Hope up if she needs it.
[18:06] Shadowcaller: behind them the bridge is crumbeling, between you and the other edge are a group of masked wolfen.
[18:06] Shadowcaller: The mega-tentacle is after you as well.
[18:08] Happy: "Go back! Let us pass, and you won't be harmed!" Hope demands, her voice ringing with authority.
[18:09] Shadowcaller: "Screw that…" The majority of the wolfen are pushed off the birdge by an invisible force.
[18:12] Wolfbane: Promise will sprint to the other end of the bridge then.
[18:13] Happy: Hope right behind him.
[18:13] Shadowcaller: Only two of them remain, "Can't… disobey…" It says as Promise rushes past, it, without meaning to he comes in contact with it's shoulder which makes it lose balance…
[18:14] Shadowcaller: …and fall down into the darkness below.
[18:16] Wolfbane: And the other?
[18:16] Shadowcaller: It dosen't even try to stop you.
[18:16] Shadowcaller: You get over the bridge, all of you.
[18:16] Shadowcaller: Moments later it collapses, with the wolfen still on it.
[18:20] Shadowcaller: Arik lands on the ledge, he blasts the mega tentacle that suddenly retreats back into the deepths again.
[18:20] Shadowcaller: "Close…" He comments.
[18:23] Happy: Hope puts her arm around Promise for comfort.
[18:24] Wolfbane: He's shaking pretty badly, but doesn't fight her.
[18:25] Shadowcaller: Allyria gets lose from Aegnors grip. "Okay… I'm going to assult that thing in spirit form while you attack it the normal way."
[18:27] Shadowcaller: "I'm pretty sure I can distract it and otherwise I fear I won't be much help."
[18:30] Aegnor: 'You'd better be careful then.'
[18:32] Shadowcaller: She nods "Yeah… it beats getting dragged down there thought…" She looks up into Aegnor eyes and sigh "…just whatever that happens… you know that I- I'm your friend Aegnor."
[18:33] Aegnor: He takes her hand. 'Seriously now. This isn't any last farewell and you'd better keep that in mind.'
[18:34] Shadowcaller: She smiles slightly, her eyes looking tearful, "I can feel it, it ends tonight. And no, not in that way…"
[18:34] Shadowcaller: "Just go okay? I be fine."
[18:35] Happy: "I'll stay and watch over her," Simone says to Aegnor.
[18:37] Aegnor: 'All right.' He sighs. 'Let's do it then.'
[18:37] Happy: "Cessie, give me some powder, just in case."
[18:38] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Eh, okay… here."
[18:39] Shadowcaller: She carefully gives Simone a bag.
[18:39] Shadowcaller: AriK: "Time is ticking…"
[18:39] Aegnor: Aegnor gives Simone a hug. 'We'll be back soon.'
[18:40] Shadowcaller: Allyria appears to be relaxing. "Thanks for watching me Simone."
[18:41] Happy: "You better be."
[18:43] Wolfbane: They continue on I guess
[18:43] Shadowcaller: Yes.
[18:44] Shadowcaller: Down they go, the stairs is leading into a spiral, further and futher down below.
[18:44] Shadowcaller: *further
[18:46] Shadowcaller: Finally you reach the tomb itself. There is a door here, but it's not looked, the inscription looks newer then the rest of what you have seen in Skettis. "Here Lies Dawn Wolf, the great mother, She sacrificed herself to save us from her own corruption. She is the heart of the wolfen race, may she find pace in the after-life, may she protect us from darkness even in death, may she some day return
[18:47] Shadowcaller: to us. Our belowed mother, we give our souls and all out love to you. - Bound by Honor, the last wolfen king.
[18:50] Shadowcaller: Arik opens the door and you are meet by a foul stench.
[18:51] Shadowcaller: You can see a huge pawn in a large chain nearby. beyond it is darkness. The tomb is mugh larger then you could have imagined.
[18:52] Happy: Promise and Hope step inside.
[18:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie lets magic light up the room and then you can see the rest of dawn wolf.
[18:53] Shadowcaller: She is chained to the floor, by four enourmous chains.
[18:55] Shadowcaller: And the pawns is pretty much the only part of her that looks like a wolf. Her body is crawling with an endless number of tentacles. They are going down into the earth, up into the air… her head is a mockery of what a wolfen would look like and her eyes are shining white. Some ot the tentacles ends with what looks like wolfheads, they even have jaws.
[18:55] Shadowcaller: Near her is the image of the Oni lord.

[18:56] Shadowcaller: there
[18:56] Wolfbane: Promise instantly has tears running down his face at the sight, but refuses to let himself break down.
[18:56] Shadowcaller: "It ends then, you arrive at the tomb of my murderer and savior."
[18:57] Shadowcaller: "We have been expecting you."
[18:57] Shadowcaller: "We have shared memories of each of you… elf, wolfen, human, human… dead thing."
[18:58] Shadowcaller: "We have killed a part of each of your races. You have all a reason to be here."
[18:59] Shadowcaller: "And you will find that we are more then willing to share out tomb. We have a suggestion."
[18:59] Aegnor: (they've killed a part of liches? )
[18:59] Shadowcaller: (Apperently.)
[18:59] Shadowcaller: (Or undead more likely.)
[19:01] Shadowcaller: "If you take away these chains, something not even our own servants could have done, we will not use the worm."
[19:01] Shadowcaller: "We will find a new way. But we would still remain."
[19:01] Happy: Hope kneels by the paw and touches it. "Mother?"
[19:03] Shadowcaller: The pawn moves slightly. "She dose not hear you mortal. She wishes do take us to death, but we could not die. We are the last of our kind and we won't stop fighting."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: *will not stop fighting
[19:04] Wolfbane: Promise reaches out to the paw as well, needing to at least feel part of Dawn Wolf before it came to an end.
[19:04] Happy: Hope tries to reach inside her with spirit energy. "We have come to help you," she says softly, tears in her eyes.
[19:05] Shadowcaller: She can't tell if works or not.
[19:05] Happy: She's exploring with it, not trying to do anything yet.
[19:07] Shadowcaller: "Know that we mean death if you would encounter us… feel the pain of the mortal lives we have taken." There is a burst of spirit energy…
[19:07] Happy: where?
[19:07] Happy: just Hope?
[19:08] Shadowcaller: (Second…)
[19:17] Happy: (how much time passed?)
[19:17] Shadowcaller: (Not much.)
[19:25] Happy: Hope puts her hand on Promise's paw, where they are both touching the Dawn Wolf.
[19:30] Shadowcaller: Promise is unresonsive.
[19:30] Happy: "Promise… it's not true. Come back to me."
[19:34] Aegnor: Aegnor blinks and looks around with a small smile, which soon disappears as he looks more worried at Cessie.
[19:35] Wolfbane: Promise growls angrily as he snaps back.
[19:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie is crying slightly, but is still looking suprisingly brave.
[19:36] Shadowcaller: She seems to have snapped back as well.
[19:36] Aegnor: Aegnor tries to take her hand and smiles at her.
[19:37] Happy: Michi?
[19:37] Shadowcaller: (One moment >.>)
[19:38] Shadowcaller: As Aegnor touches her hand she looks up at him and quickly takes it hugging him. "Please don't go…"
[19:38] Aegnor: He holds her. 'I'm not going anywhere for as long as you want me to be here, remember?'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: Michicora looks deeply bothered, thoughtful, which is quite unlike her. But she appears to have snapped back, barely.
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Y-yeah…." Cessie replies, he can feel her tears throught his clothes.
[19:41] Shadowcaller: She is hugging him very thightly.
[19:41] Shadowcaller: Oni: "This won't change anything. You will still die, but now you have seen the truth at least."
[19:42] Aegnor: 'Such a truth as it was.' Aegnor sounds unconcerned and supports Cessie.
[19:44] Wolfbane: "All you showed us were twisted lies."
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "I showed you the truth, if you want to accept it or not is your choice, not mine."
[19:45] Aegnor: 'Truth can look like anything depending on the angle, you know.'
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "We are aware."
[19:47] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Are you quite done now? I can't take this thing on my own."
[19:49] Shadowcaller: Cessie snivles a bit, but let's go a bit from Aegnor.
[19:50] Shadowcaller: *snivels
[19:50] Wolfbane: Promise squeezes Hope's hand and nods to the others.
[19:52] Happy: Hope is still trying to connect to the Dawn Wolf somehow.
[19:54] Shadowcaller: Michicora falters a bit, but nods back slowly.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: Oni: "You are then ready-" *Arik sends a ice bolt at Dawn wolfs head and summons a water elemental*
[19:55] Wolfbane: (Does Hope succeed?)
[19:56] Shadowcaller: (She isn't sure yet, she can sense something within there thought…)
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Tentacles emerges from the ground and tries to grab each party member.
[19:59] Wolfbane: Promise will slash at the one trying to get at Hope first
[19:59] Happy: She keeps trying. /Mother. We're here to help you./
[20:00] Aegnor: Aegnor keels tentacles with sword
[20:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie is protected by her shield and summons a fire and a air elemental agaisnt the tentacles.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: *against
[20:03] Shadowcaller: Michicora slashes of some of the tentacles. But they the sheer amount of them, the group is starting to get overwhelmed.
[20:04] Shadowcaller: /Hope…/ Hope can hear Allyrias voice. /You are getting a connection, I'm trying to disturb this blasted thing, but I'm not getting it's attention…/
[20:05] Shadowcaller: /Keep trying, you are reaching her./
[20:05] Happy: /I will/
[20:06] Wolfbane: Promise will continue to defend Hope first before himself, figuring that she's doing something important.
[20:06] Shadowcaller: Oni: "You shall all rot."
[20:06] Happy: to Dawn: /We love you. All of the wolfen love you./
[20:06] Shadowcaller: "No Hope."
[20:06] Shadowcaller: (As not the name…)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: (Damn you and your names Happy:P)
[20:07] Shadowcaller: Allyria: /Aegnor? I need your help…/
[20:08] Shadowcaller: Michicora is figthing her way to Aegnor, figuring they are safer together.
[20:09] Shadowcaller: *figthing.
[20:09] Aegnor: /What?/
[20:11] Shadowcaller: /You need to enter spirit form… somehow, we need to distract this thing while Hope talks to Dawn wolf./
[20:11] Aegnor: /All right./
[20:13] Shadowcaller: Ariks's and Cessie blasts dosen't seem to do much against this mosnter. It's healing at a extremly fast rate.
[20:13] Shadowcaller: *monster
[20:14] Aegnor: Assumedly going to spiritform leaves your body vulnerable
[20:14] Happy: /All of your children love you./
[20:14] Aegnor: and there's no way to get to safety for him
[20:14] Shadowcaller: Yes. It dose.
[20:14] Aegnor: so Aegnor will head next to Hope so they don't have to defend two locations. 'Please protect my body.'
[20:15] Shadowcaller: Michciora nods "With my life."
[20:15] Shadowcaller: *michicora
[20:15] Aegnor: 'Thanks.' He smiles briefly and then attempts to take spiritform.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: He enters it as Promise and Michicora are trying to fight off the tentacles. Suddenly a large tentacle is emerging behind Michicora and attacks tries to smash Hope.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Aegnor enters spirit form and now see the tomb as completely empty.
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Except for a huge shadowy being in the place where dawn wolf laid.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: It dosen't seem to notice him however.
[20:18] Wolfbane: Promise will lunge for the tentacle to knock it away from Hope.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: Aegnor notice a black dragon-like in the distance.
[20:18] Aegnor: /All right then./
[20:19] Shadowcaller: If Aegnor looks down on himself, he can see that he is a green dragon-like type of spirit.
[20:19] Shadowcaller: *black dragon-like spirit
[20:20] Shadowcaller: /Okay… listen to me./ Allyria says, the dragon spirit looking at him.
[20:20] Shadowcaller: /As soon as we attack that thing, it will try to kill us./
[20:20] Shadowcaller: /But it will also distract it so Hope can reach into Dawn wold./
[20:21] Shadowcaller: The tentacle is knocked away, but another one takes it's place, they are slowly filling the room, no matter how many they cut down.
[20:22] Shadowcaller: A gorup of tentacles comes up and grabs both Promises feet while a larger one tries to smash him.
[20:22] Shadowcaller: *group
[20:23] Wolfbane: He'll try to roll out from under the big one while slashing at the two grabbing his feet.
[20:24] Aegnor: /Right. So, let's do it then./
[20:25] Shadowcaller: The dragon spirit nods /Yes… this will be risky thought, not what I had planned…/ The dragon sigh /Let's do it./
[20:26] Shadowcaller: She breathes fire at the head of the shadowy thing that lifts it, looking at them with dark eyes, /YOU ARE ALREADY DEAD./
[20:27] Shadowcaller: Then it rises, trying to reach it with it's long claws.
[20:28] Shadowcaller: (ugh, lots of things to control here… oh well.)
[20:29] Aegnor: Aegnor breathes fire aswell
[20:29] Shadowcaller: One of the tentacles are cut off and the large one misses him.
[20:29] Shadowcaller: (Let's speed this up…)
[20:29] Wolfbane: Promise slashes at the other one and stands if able to. He'll go back to defending Hope and Aegnor.
[20:30] Shadowcaller: Hope can feel the connection to Dawn wolf becoming better, she passes barriers that once helf her at bay.
[20:30] Shadowcaller: *held
[20:30] Happy: /We're here to help you. We love you. All of your children love you./
[20:31] Shadowcaller: /The darkness…/ Is the reply. Two mega-tentacles emerges from the ground, one at Michicora and one at Aegnor. The mega tentacle slams Michi before she can react, she fall to the ground as more tentacles emerges.
[20:33] Shadowcaller: Both Allyria and Aegnor breathes fire against the shadow thing that tries to catch them as they had been flies. Allyria is extremly aggresive, going for it's head, again and again.
[20:33] Shadowcaller: She dosen't notice it's starting to corner her, the shadow becomes like a wall around her.
[20:33] Wolfbane: Promise hurls his axe at the one about to attack Aegnor and pulls him and Michi closer to Hope ebfore taking up Aegnor's sword.
[20:34] Aegnor: /Careful, it's surrounding you./
[20:34] Shadowcaller: /Gah! Die you stupid-/
[20:34] Happy: /I know… the oni took you into the darkness./
[20:34] Shadowcaller: Allyria breathes fire against the wall as she flies into it, she breaks the barrier, but it seems to cut into her wings thought.
[20:35] Shadowcaller: /It needs me and I need it…/
[20:35] Aegnor: Aegnor flies closer to her while attacking the thing.
[20:36] Shadowcaller: The mega tentacle near Aegnor aims itself at Promise instead, trying to slam him into the ground. Michicora kicks away the tentacles trying to grab her.
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /I don't even have the strength to die anymore…/
[20:38] Wolfbane: Promise tries to get out of the way(either by sidestepping or ducking) and hacks at it.
[20:39] Shadowcaller: The shadow thing lashes out against Aegnor and Allyria going much faster, Aegnor cna feels it's claws digging into his scales. It grabs his left wing. /THERE IS NO HOPE./
[20:39] Happy: /We've come to help you die./
[20:39] Aegnor: He breathes fire at the claw
[20:40] Shadowcaller: It lets him go but slams him with the other one. "YOUR FRIENDS WILL BETRAY YOU." He gets a glimpse of Allyria
[20:41] Shadowcaller: despite her damaged wings flying straight inot the shadow thing.
[20:41] Shadowcaller: *into
[20:41] Shadowcaller: /How…? They control everything./
[20:42] Aegnor: /Hey, careful. We're just a distraction./
[20:42] Aegnor: 'Yeah right.' He dodges downwards.
[20:43] Shadowcaller: The tentacle misses Promise by a centimeter and he gets another cut into it.
[20:43] Happy: (it would help if you'd say who was talking…)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: (Err… yeah, sorry.)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: Dawn wolf: /How…? They control everything./

[20:45] Happy: /I can reach inside you, stop your heart. I'll try to make it painless./
[20:46] Wolfbane: Promise cuts at the tentacles holding Michi
[20:46] Wolfbane: (Did Michi ever keep that really large sword from the Hunter Spirit?)
[20:47] Shadowcaller: (What do you mean?)
[20:47] Shadowcaller: /You- You can?/
[20:47] Shadowcaller: /Please… please do it./
[20:47] Shadowcaller: Dawn wolf begs.
[20:48] Shadowcaller: Allyria retreats backwards, the shadow thing going against her, she dosen't seem able to dodge it much longer.
[20:49] Happy: Hope tries to do that.
[20:49] Wolfbane: (Don't you remember the large 2handed sword the hunter spirit had? The one with the horse? Promise offered it to her as she was the one who killed it)
[20:49] Shadowcaller: All the elementals are dead, Cessie is deperatly trying to force the tentacles away from her, but the shield isn't holding much longer, she screams as it breaks, she confumes the closest tentacles in fire.
[20:49] Aegnor: Aegnor attacks the part attacking Allyria
[20:49] Aegnor: from below
[20:51] Shadowcaller: As Hope reaches out, she can feel the heart beating. She could stop it, she could end it… she feels something, a voice trying to stop her thought. /NO, NO, NO! I AM THE LAST, I WON'T DIE. I AM YOUR LAST HOPE./
[20:51] Shadowcaller: *!
[20:51] Happy: She ignores that voice. /Be at peace, Mother/
[20:52] Happy: She uses her power to stop the Dawn Mother's heart.
[20:52] Shadowcaller: /THE DREAM. I-/ /Be at peace… mortal…and thank you… all my race owns you…/
[20:52] Shadowcaller: The heart stops.
[20:52] Shadowcaller: The tentacles stop.
[20:53] Shadowcaller: The shadow things screams and waves wildly with it's arms as it starts to fade. /NO! I WILL- IT CAN'T END LIKE THIS! I AM STILL ONI! I- I… am dead? Alakiaghakl…./
[20:54] Shadowcaller: The headand the body stops moving.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: *head and
[20:55] Shadowcaller: The shadow thing is gone… or it's dead, but it's taking time.
[20:56] Wolfbane: The tentacles have stopped attacking?
[20:56] Shadowcaller: Yes
[20:56] Happy: Hope will stay with the spirit of the Dawn Wolf as long as she can.
[20:56] Wolfbane: Promise will go and try to get Cessie back towards the others
[20:56] Aegnor: /That was somewhat too close./
[20:57] Shadowcaller: From the body, two spirits emerges. One is Dawn Wolf and the other is The oni Lord. they are both fading, slowly.
[20:58] Shadowcaller: /YEah… I need to heal my spirit a bit… try to get back to your body in the mean time Aegnor…. I told you I wasn't going to die didn't I?(
[20:58] Shadowcaller: (Allyria.)
[20:58] Aegnor: /Of course not. I'll see you in a bit./ He returns to his body.
[20:59] Shadowcaller: Oni Lord: "You have bested us… but there is one thing left…"
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (Don't worry, whatever they say, it won't be another fight.)
[21:00] Shadowcaller: "The worm."
[21:00] Shadowcaller: The whole tomb start to shake.
[21:00] Shadowcaller: Legias looks up "The other is here. We feel it."
[21:01] Shadowcaller: Arik: "The worm…"
[21:01] Shadowcaller: Dawn WOlf: "I thank you… I wish there was words…"
[21:02] Wolfbane: (can everyone hear the dawn wolf?)
[21:02] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[21:02] Happy: Hope puts her arms around Promise. "We love you."
[21:03] Wolfbane: Promise puts an arm around Hope. "We're sorry it had to be like this. I'll tell your mate of your passing."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "He is alive? Please tell him I'm not angry… tell him he dosen't need to be ashamed for what he did."
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "I am so sorry for everything…"
[21:04] Shadowcaller: As dawn wold speaks the ground beneath Aegnor starts to shift.
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (This chamber is *really* huge by the way.)
[21:05] Wolfbane: "We…we know."
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "There are no words… I'm fading, there is nothing I can say or do…"
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "It's not enough time to even see him and really tell him how sorry I am."
[21:08] Happy: "We will tell him. And your children."
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "I will never see him again…"
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "Tell him I love him."
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "Tell him I always did, even during that time…"
[21:09] Shadowcaller: Dawn Wolf seems to be fading faster then the oni lord.
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "Farewell… I love you all… all my children."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: She smiles as she finally fades away.
[21:14] Happy: Hope holds Promise very tightly and cries.
[21:14] Wolfbane: Promise clings to her tightly, doing the same.
[21:17] Shadowcaller: There are a few moments of peace as suddenly something breaks into the tomb, a creature that the closest thing it would be like would be a worm.
[21:18] Shadowcaller: It's taking up a central part of the chamber.
[21:18] Aegnor: Aegnor stands up
[21:19] Shadowcaller: It turns to Legias. Arik goes closer to it.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: At first the worm seems almost confused.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Arik: "This… this is a true god."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: Legias: "Incorrect, there is no such things."
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "This is the other, our kin."
[21:23] Shadowcaller: Legias touches it. ANd… words are uttered, it sounds like millions of people screaming at the same time.
[21:24] Shadowcaller: Legias removes his hand from it. "It's… it's a child."
[21:24] Shadowcaller: "It don't understand."
[21:28] Wolfbane: "It still needs to be destroyed."
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "It's sorry."
[21:28] Happy: "Destroy it."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "I can't… I won't. Too connected."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "To us, this is a child.
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "It says if you can't forgive it, it will let one of you destroy it."
[21:30] Happy: "It destroyed cities. Whole civilizations."
[21:30] Shadowcaller: "Yes. So did we."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "We did not udnerstand."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: *understand
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "Was like ants, nothing to us."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "It will show one of you it's heart."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "It will let you end it."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Or we can use it."
[21:33] Happy: "NO!"
[21:33] Wolfbane: Promise growls at Arik. "No. We kill it."
[21:33] Happy: (Cessie or Michi have anything to say?)
[21:33] Aegnor: Aegnor looks around for his sword.
[21:34] Shadowcaller: He finds it on the floor among the tentacles.
[21:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie twhaps Arik on the head >.>
[21:34] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Fine… we destroy it."
[21:35] Aegnor: He grabs it and cleans it up a bit.
[21:35] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Aegnor… you should do it."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: Michicora goes close to Hope to see if she's okay. "You okay?"
[21:36] Aegnor: He sighs. 'All right.'
[21:36] Shadowcaller: The worm looks at Aegnor.
[21:37] Happy: Hope nods.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: Legias: "They are ready."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: Then Michcicora huge her.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *hugs
[21:38] Shadowcaller: Warmly this time. "I was so worried about you all the time…"
[21:38] Shadowcaller: Her speach is almost… normal.
[21:38] Shadowcaller: *speeach
[21:38] Shadowcaller: :..
[21:38] Shadowcaller: Whatever
[21:38] Happy: xD
[21:38] Happy: Hope hugs her back, but she keeps one arm around Promise
[21:38] Wolfbane: Promise will go to retrieve his fallen axe, also letting the two have a moment semi-alone
[21:38] Wolfbane: >.>
[21:39] Wolfbane: nevermind
[21:39] Aegnor: Aegnor walks towards the Worm.
[21:39] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[21:39] Happy: He'd have to pull away from her to get loose.
[21:39] Happy: "She was in so much pain…"

[21:40] Happy: [21:39] Happy: He'd have to pull away from her to get loose.
[21:39] Happy: "She was in so much pain…"
[21:40] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
(The oni lord is still there by the way… it seems to be waiting for something.)

[21:41] Shadowcaller: The worm lowers itself as Aegnor approaches it.
[21:41] Shadowcaller: It's skin opens up.
[21:41] Shadowcaller: He can see something black deep inside of there, a heart.
[21:42] Wolfbane: (The Dawn Wolf's paw still has fur, right? And smells like her?)
[21:42] Shadowcaller: (Yes… in a way i guess_)
[21:43] Shadowcaller: Legias: "They ask you to end them, quickly."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "They didn't understand, they were just hungry."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "They are ashamed."
[21:44] Aegnor: He doesn't say anything, just raises the sword and plunges it into the heart with a strong thrust.
[21:44] Aegnor: Then breathes fire at it for extra measure.
[21:45] Shadowcaller: The worm sways a bit at first, then it starts to disolve into the air, the skin and the flesh first.
[21:45] Shadowcaller: Then he can feel the souls breaking away from each other.
[21:46] Shadowcaller: He can feel people he had known, his family, many of his relatives, many of those Simone knew… and countless of others.
[21:46] Shadowcaller: lesser gods, animals, plants…
[21:47] Shadowcaller: They pass him for moments, as the worm burns up. Legias looks sad somehow, which is pretty impressive for a skeleton.
[21:47] Shadowcaller: Their souls, their lives fade away, finally free…
[21:48] Shadowcaller: WOlfen souls as well, some of Hope's people, Hestopians… wizards, necromancers, druids, spirit speakers, dragons…
[21:48] Shadowcaller: All there, all fading past them.'
[21:48] Wolfbane: Promise nods, sad, before getting an idea. He gently removes Hope's arm and goes to Dawn Wolf's paw and cuts away a small lock of fur. "Its…a gift for Goldie." He tries not to feel sadder.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: Legias: "It's over." The skeleton says as the last souls seem to fade away.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: Oni: "It's not."
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "The old rule is over. A new one shall begin."
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "We ruled this world for millions of years. It is now your turn."
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "We are giving you our keys, the keys to this world, all the knowledge we had of it… all the secrets, all the powers… it's all yours now."
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "We did our best, the dancer can not demand anything more from us now."
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "We have suffered, we are old, we do not belong here anymore. We made the world work for a time, but now it's time for us to fade into oblivion as all things eventually do."
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "We are ready…"
[21:52] Happy: Simone would be kicking herself to miss this.
[21:52] Wolfbane: (heh)
[21:52] Happy: But Hope doesn't care. She is mourning the Dawn Wolf.
[21:54] Shadowcaller: What appears to be a key appears in Aegnors hand. "There, we give this to you… use it well…" The oni is starting to fade as well now. "We are glad you did this in a way, you might do a better job then we ever did. We know you must think us as monters, but please remember we just did what we thought was best."
[21:54] Shadowcaller: "We do not understand what we did wrong… but we ask not for forgiveness. We gave it all… farewell…"
[21:55] Shadowcaller: The oni lord fades into nothingness.
[21:56] Aegnor: Aegnor looks at the key-thing
[21:56] Shadowcaller: It seems to be made out of air or colors, but in the shape of a large key. It's shifting in pink and purple.
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "Well, that took some time." You can hear Helios voice as Simone enters the room…
[21:57] Shadowcaller: Her eyes are pure red withour pupils, just like Helio's. "Now, let's make a deal."
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "Your minds can hardly gasp everything in that key."
[21:58] Aegnor: 'Hey. Let go of her.'
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "Give me the key Aeagnor and I will let her go and you will get a free wish each."
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "Thats the deal."
[21:58] Shadowcaller: *aegnor
[21:59] Aegnor: 'That's not a deal, that's blackmail.'
[21:59] Wolfbane: ("I wish for you not to grant this wish" >.>)
[21:59] Wolfbane: *watches Helios asplode*
[21:59] Shadowcaller: (Helios is not a genie:P)
[22:00] Aegnor: (Mainly, 'I wish for the key back. Now.')
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, you have no use for the key, but I have. I can give you almost anything in exachange for it."
[22:00] Aegnor: 'Let her go right now and I might /think/ of negotiating with you.'
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "I'm afraid I can't do that Aegnor."
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Simone steps closer, shadows starts to form around her.
[22:01] Happy: (is Simone aware of anything?)
[22:02] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, the real boss >.>) "Give me the key Aegnor." (Helios is giving her some information of whats going on, yes.)
[22:02] Aegnor: 'Fuck you.'
[22:03] Shadowcaller: Helios/SImoen sigh. "Why did I know this would happen?"
[22:04] Shadowcaller: "See, I don't want to harm any of you. I am a really good deal here, if you give me that key, I will leave this world, forever."
[22:04] Shadowcaller: *I have a really good deal
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "You will never see me again."
[22:05] Aegnor: 'I'm not going to negotiate or do anything else but to consider you a hostile as long as you're holding Simone.'
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "Heck, I could even give Simone here my god status if she wanted."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "With that key, I can give you anything you wish for. Look, no one else can do this. The other gods wouldn't understand it. They don't know what I do."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "I have searched for that key for millenia."
[22:07] Wolfbane: "Why do you even want it?"
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "Or rather, technically me and my forerunners have searched for it…"
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "It contains endless information about the structure of the world."
[22:08] Wolfbane: "And what would you do with it?"
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "Eh… look for more knowledge?"
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I would be able to look outside this world, to learn about places outside the dream."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "My wish is to learn everything."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "So give me the key Aegnor and I will take you all back to the tree, I will make Cessie immortal, I will do anything you wish for."
[22:13] Happy: "Cessie?"
[22:13] Aegnor: Aegnor is ignoring him.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "I'm thinking Hope, it dose sounds resonable, but Simone… Aegnor?" She looks at him.
[22:14] Wolfbane: "Helios, what's the catch?"
[22:15] Shadowcaller: "No catch, you give me the key, I give you whatever you like. Well, to a limit…"
[22:16] Shadowcaller: Helios/Simone sigh "I try to be reasonable here, I don't want to fight you."
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "I won't really harm you of course, thats what sleep spells are for, but it feels so primitive. I really like to come to an agreement."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: Simone/Helios looks directly at Aegnor, going a bit closer to him. "Well?"
[22:19] Wolfbane: "If this is all a dream, what happens when you take the key and leave?"
[22:20] Happy: "Why do we have to decide this now? Let go of Simone, let us take the Dawn Wolf out of here, and we'll talk after we've all healed and rested."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "The key is just information Promise."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "No, since you are stubborn and stupid. You would hold on to the key just for spite."
[22:22] Wolfbane: "What happened to Allyria?" (Or is she here?)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "She is still healing her spirit. I made her sleep."
[22:22] Aegnor: Aegnor walks over to Cessie.
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "It heals faster that way."
[22:23] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes up to Aegnor. "I- it feels kind of tempting…"
[22:23] Happy: "So you hold a little girl hostage to get it. Someone who has put herself at risk for you."#
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "No, I can't just enter the world hux-flux like some gods can."
[22:24] Happy: "We can make a circle and talk to you, the way we always have."
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "No, I want that key and I'm not letting some stubborn elf keep it just beacuse he hates me."
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "He would waste it's true potential."
[22:26] Aegnor: Aegnor takes out the key and hands it to Cessie.
[22:26] Happy: "So you'll kill Simone if we don't give it to you?"
[22:26] Happy: "Let her go!"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: She blinks "No Aegnor, I can't…" She looks at the key. "I'm not the best person."
[22:27] Shadowcaller: Helios/Simone looks shocked.
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "What?!"
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "I would never harm Simone."
[22:27] Aegnor: 'You should have it. For one, he shouldn't be able to affect your mind.'
[22:27] Happy: "Then why can't we use a circle?"
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Since I suspected the elf would completely ignore me and keep the key to himself."
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "As… he did."
[22:28] Wolfbane: (*hits pause* Dinner)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (okay.)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Cessie stares at the key as it glows in her hand. She shakes her head. "Gods…"
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "Hope, can you take it? Promise?" (and there we stop.)
[22:34] Aegnor: 'I trust in you, and we can make any decisions together.'
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "It's really tempting Aegnor…" She looks into his eyes. "We could live together that way…"
[22:36] Happy: "Cessie… this is beyond me. I just want to take the Dawn Wolf somewhere that she can rest, and make a home for Goldie. I never wanted to know more."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: Helios/Simone: "I'm going to let Simone speak to you a minute… hold on…" The shadows fades and Simone's eyes return to normal.
[22:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I know Hope… I just want to finish this and leave this cursed timb."
[22:39] Shadowcaller: *tomb
[22:39] Happy: "I having such a kind god, yes?"
[22:39] Aegnor: 'You all right?' Aegnor turns to her.
[22:40] Happy: "Yes. He not hurt me. Just trick me. Use Allyria's voice to ask for help."
[22:41] Aegnor: 'Can you shut him out?'
[22:42] Happy: "I'm sure he not give me control if it that easy."
[22:42] Aegnor: 'Yeah. Well, I'm not going to talk to him as long as he keeps doing that to you.'
[22:44] Happy: "He says he'll leave me if you give me the key."
[22:44] Aegnor: 'That's not the point, though.'
[22:45] Happy: "He leave first. Then you give key to me. Then we negotiate ."
[22:46] Aegnor: 'He leaves you and then we can negotiate with him somewhere else with a circle.'
[22:48] Happy: "Yes."
[22:49] Happy: "But he wants me to have key when negotiating."
[22:51] Aegnor: 'Why? So he can take control again?'
[22:51] Happy: "He not able to take control unless I step in circle again. And I not be fooled twice."
[22:51] Aegnor: 'You know, if it's a key with a huge amount of knowledge, I'd rather give it to you than him anyway.'
[22:52] Happy: Simone grins at him.
[22:56] Aegnor: 'So, we'll negotiate once he leaves and you'll get the key, sure.'
[22:57] Happy: "He's gone."
[22:58] Aegnor: 'All right. Let's get out of this place.'
[22:59] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Yeah… let's." She nods.
[22:59] Happy: "The key?"
[23:00] Aegnor: 'Look at it outside.'
[23:00] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Ugh… he really wanted that key didn't he? Can I see it?"
[23:00] Wolfbane: back
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (Oh right Cessie had it…)
[23:01] Happy: Hope: "Don't you dare give it to him."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes towards Simone "Do you want it?"
[23:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie glances at Arik, "I won't."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Sounded kind of like a threat thought >.>)
[23:03] Happy: It was in a snarl.
[23:04] Happy: Even as experienced as she is at hiding her feelings, Simone can't disguise how much she wants the key. She can't take her eyes off it.
[23:05] Aegnor: 'Let's get outside first.' Aegnor heads for the exit
[23:05] Happy: "You think I still him!"
[23:05] Aegnor: 'I think I don't want to stand ankle-deep in tentacles.'
[23:06] Wolfbane: "What about Dawn Wolf?" Promise says, not wanting to leave her body here to simply rot. He tucks away the now braided lock of her fur into a pouch.
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (Not to mention the large hole in the middle of the tomb:P)
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (Her body is quite large, not even everyone in the group would be able to carry her.)
[23:07] Shadowcaller: (Not to mention all the tentacles going from her body…)
[23:07] Happy: Hope means to take it out
[23:07] Happy: She'll start cutting off the tentacles with her sword.
[23:07] Aegnor: well, will it even fit through the tunnels?
[23:07] Shadowcaller: (Well, it's too large of the door, she must have been lowered down here from the hole up there.
[23:08] Shadowcaller: )
[23:08] Shadowcaller: *for the door
[23:08] Wolfbane: Promise will hack at the tentacles as well. "She deserves a better place than this."
[23:08] Aegnor: 'Maybe, but we can't get her out now.'
[23:09] Happy: "Cessie… isn't there something you can do?"
[23:10] Aegnor: 'You can come get her out with help in a day or two. It's not like we're in a hurry anymore.'
[23:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie shakes her head "I'm sorry Hope, I can lift it up all that distance."
[23:10] Shadowcaller: *can't
[23:11] Happy: Hope: /Kuori? Is there any way we can? She deserves a better resting place than this./
[23:12] Happy: "We still have to try and find the corrupted cubs… try and help them…"
[23:12] Shadowcaller: (Not sure Kuori is aware of this, in thact case he would have tried to help them:P)
[23:12] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "This place needs help. Maybe we can fix it."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: (And you really don't want to explain all this…)
[23:13] Shadowcaller: "Fix it?" Cessie looks around "Hm, never thought about that… must be a lot of wolfen lore here."
[23:13] Happy: (Kuori didn't know what they were doing?)
[23:13] Wolfbane: "I meant the people and corruption, not the place itself."
[23:14] Shadowcaller: (No, Helios told them not to tell anyone >.>)
[23:14] Happy: (oh… right)
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "If they were born with it… I'm not sure Promise."
[23:15] Happy: (Zubera knows though…)
[23:15] Shadowcaller: (Oh yes, she dose.)
[23:16] Happy: "We can make a circle then… send her to Zubera's realm." Hope is barely holding it together
[23:16] Happy: "We can't leave her here, where she suffered."
[23:17] Wolfbane: Promise puts a paw on her shoulder, trying to comfort her. "We won't. We won't leave her."
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "Circles can't be made that large, it goes against the rule of- err… well you can't."
[23:17] Wolfbane: (Technically, Promise was never under geas not to tell gods. >.>)
[23:18] Happy: (I'm getting teary eyed again T_T )
[23:18] Wolfbane: (He wasn't there when the others were bound)
[23:18] Wolfbane: *snuggles Happy*
[23:18] Shadowcaller: (<.<)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Well, there is one idea…"
[23:20] Happy: "Cessie, let me have the key." /Simone
[23:20] Shadowcaller: Cessi gives it to Simone.
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie. "Well there, it's done…"
[23:21] Happy: "Thank you." She tucks it away in a fold.
[23:21] Shadowcaller: Arik: "But I doubt you would like that."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: *like it
[23:22] Happy: Hope's face goes pale. "No."
[23:22] Wolfbane: "You won't desecrate her body by raising it."
[23:22] Shadowcaller: Arik shrugs, "I figured so."
[23:25] Happy: Hope goes to lay her hands on the Dawn Wolf's head. "We will come back for you. I swear it."
[23:26] Wolfbane: Promise goes with her, doing the same before taking her hand and squeezing it gently.
[23:27] Happy: "Let's go find the cubs."
[23:27] Shadowcaller: Arik steps away, going up the stairs.
[23:28] Wolfbane: He goes to do so.
[23:28] Shadowcaller: Arik must fly them over the gap.
[23:29] Shadowcaller: But they can't see any cubs when they enter that section, they must still be hiding.
[23:29] Wolfbane: "Should I call for them?"
[23:30] Shadowcaller: (New oots.)
[23:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Call for them?"
[23:32] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I have no intrests in talking with some cubs…"
[23:32] Shadowcaller: He continues walking.
[23:32] Happy: "Yes," Hope says. She ignores Arik.
[23:32] * Wolfbane has left the conversation.
[23:33] *
moc.liamtoh|700enabflow#moc.liamtoh|700enabflow (Wolfbane) has joined the conversation.
[23:33] Shadowcaller: Cessie glances after Arik and sigh.
[23:34] Wolfbane: (last said?)
[23:34] Happy: [23:32] Shadowcaller: Arik: "I have no intrests in talking with some cubs…"
[23:32] Shadowcaller: He continues walking.
[23:32] Happy: "Yes," Hope says. She ignores Arik.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: "Shadowcaller säger:
(New oots.)
Cessie: "Call for them?"
Arik: "I have no intrests in talking with some cubs…"
He continues walking.
Happy säger:
"Yes," Hope says. She ignores Arik.

[23:34] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "What do you mean call fo them?"
[23:34] Shadowcaller: *for
[23:34] Wolfbane: Promise draws in a deep breath before howling in the manner for cubs to come to their parents.
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Maybe the parents you just killed?:P)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: He can hear sneaking sounds, they are being watched.
[23:38] Happy: "Please come out. We want to help." /Wolfen
[23:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Would it be okay for me and Aegnor to leave? This isn't really our thing…"
[23:41] Happy: Hope looks up at Cessie and gives her a weary half smile. "Be careful."
[23:41] Shadowcaller: "We will… it's over now Hope. It's all going to be okay." She smiles back.
[23:42] Happy: Simone goes with Cessie and Aegnor.
[23:42] Happy: Hope to Promise: "Tell Zubera to tell Goldie that we're okay."
[23:43] Wolfbane: He does so before speaking to the corrupted cubs. "We…we're here to help you."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: They are still being watched by many eyes, but none of them approaches.
[23:45] Shadowcaller: Promise can see yellow eyes in the houses and the tunnels of the room.
[23:45] Happy: (I need to have a bath. brb)
[23:45] Wolfbane: How many?
[23:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie to Aegnor. "It's hard to belive… it's over, it's finally over."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "The worm is gone, there is no world ending threats anymore…"
[23:46] Shadowcaller: "We can just settle down somewhere…" She pauses "Aegnor, are you going to give Helios the key?"
[23:46] Aegnor: 'No.'
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "…I-" She sigh "Yeah, I understand. It's okay…"
[23:48] Shadowcaller: "What are you going to do with it?"
[23:48] Shadowcaller: There are about… well, over 50 cubs.
[23:49] Aegnor: 'I don't know. Simone wants it, I guess I'll let her have it.'
[23:49] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "He really wanted that thought… I really don't want any more conflicts."
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to have to worry about Helios trying to…"
[23:51] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head "I'm sorry."
[23:51] Aegnor: 'I know. But if he wants the key, as long as we don't have it we should be safe.'
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "But I would still worry about Simone…"
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "She is left out to Helios more then any of us."
[23:53] Aegnor: 'Mhm. We'll have to think about that.'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Maybe she should decide?"
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "And… I must admit I'm tempted Aegnor."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "If I could get that… I still worry about it you know, the things that oni showed me…."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "I don't want that…"
[23:56] Aegnor: 'It didn't have anything to show me that would have been troubling.'
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "I want to be with you, I want to be there when our children grow up…"
[23:56] Aegnor: 'You will.'
[23:57] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head "It's not the same, I know your okay with dying, but I'm not…"
[23:58] Aegnor: 'Have you lost your faith in our abilities? We don't need Helios to keep you alive.'
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "It showed me that I would fail."
[23:59] Wolfbane: (You know, it /is/ pretty harsh of Aegnor to remove the easiest way of getting Cessie immortality just becase of a grude. >.>
Yes, I know the source, but still)
[23:59] Wolfbane: grudge*
[23:59] Aegnor: 'It showed me that I'd be left all alone again. That won't happen.'
[00:00] Wolfbane: (Personally, I'd bump up the deal to a lot more than just a single wish)
[00:00] Aegnor: (He believes giving Helios the ultimate power to decide the fate of the universe is not a good idea)
[00:00] Aegnor: (since Helios cares only about power and has no morals)
[00:00] Shadowcaller: (Correction, he only cares about knowledge… >.>)
[00:01] Wolfbane: Promise kneels down a bit, reaching out with a paw towards a cub. "We won't hurt you. We're here to help." /Wolfen. The cubs will smell that he's calm, and likely really trying to help them.
[00:01] Aegnor: (Nah, if that were true he'd scheme much less)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (ANd the oni weren't the ulitmate rulers of the universe really.)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (So the key can't be that powerful.)
[00:02] Aegnor: (like we know that)
[00:02] Shadowcaller: (Well, they owned it <.<)
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… but it's still something I have to worry about, would be nice to let all those big worries go at once."
[00:04] Aegnor: 'True, I guess. And in the end, it's not my decision alone.'
[00:06] Shadowcaller: She puts her arm around him and kisses his cheek. "Words can't tell how much I love you."
[00:07] Aegnor: He smiles. 'No words are needed.'
[00:08] Shadowcaller: (And wolfy, we should wait for Happy before that.)
[00:08] Shadowcaller: Eventually, you return to the surface. Cessie takes a deep breath, Arik is witing for you there.
[00:09] Shadowcaller: Arik: "So… your getting married I suppose?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: *waiting
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (Michicora stayed with Promise and Hope.)
[00:10] Shadowcaller: (I guess Allyria followed Cessie and Aegnor up.)
