The Mill

[01:04] Shadowcaller: Anyhow, there is an mostly overgrown path leading away from the mill. It looks like only a few number of people have been using it lately. "How long are we going to stay here Derek? Your silver isn't glowing so the demons can't be near us." Luna asks.
[01:05] Murska: What's the time?
[01:06] Shadowcaller: It's very early in the morning, it's between light and dark, the grass is very wet from the rain and the moisture.
[01:07] Shadowcaller: It seems like the start of yet a beutiful summer day in the heartlands.
[01:09] Shadowcaller: But since the run haven't actally risen yet, the sky is slightly grey.
[01:10] Murska: 'Let's eat something first and then get going again.'
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "We are put of food Derek…"
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "Arim's backpack got fried."
[01:13] Shadowcaller: "Don't ask me why he even took it off, he was running just fine with it."
[01:15] Murska: 'Oh. Well, I guess we're not eating anything.'
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "I can go catch something, if I use some silver I will be in no danger. I'm very good at hiding."
[01:17] Murska: 'Yeah, if you know they're coming they can't catch you. Take this.' He takes off his bracelet and hands it to her.
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Luna takes it and smiles "Thanks…" She seems to space out for a moment and then says "Err… I guess I should go…"
[01:21] Murska: He smiles. 'Be careful and be back soon.'
[01:22] Shadowcaller: She nods, turns around, glances back at you and then looks right forward before she dissapears with a blue flash of light.
[01:28] Shadowcaller: After just a few minutes she returns in the same blue light, she looks up at Derek smiling, holding a paniced hen in her hand, she have feathers here and there over her clothes.
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "Look what I found."
[01:29] Shadowcaller: SHe is holding it by the claws, thanks to her leather gloves, grinning like a fox.
[01:30] Shadowcaller: (Unside down.)
[01:30] Shadowcaller: *upside
[01:30] Murska: 'I was assuming you'd hunt a wild animal. But it's not like we have much of a choice here. Any trouble?'
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "Not really, there is a mansion up there. Looked quite empty, so I took the freedom of liberating one of their animals."
[01:35] Shadowcaller: "In fact, if it really is empty, we could go back there…"
[01:36] Murska: 'Why?'
[01:37] Shadowcaller: "Could be a lot of valuable things in there, I mean, they left their animals. Who knows what more they could have left?"
[01:38] Murska: 'Nah, it's not like we can take much with us anyway. Leave that to scavengers, if it is empty it'll be cleaned soon.'
[01:40] Shadowcaller: "Hmph, I want to take a look at least, I got a lot of empty space in my pack as we are out of food anyway." She holds the hen close ti him, it's still flapping it's wings so feathers fly everywhere. "You know how to prepare one of these right?"
[01:41] Shadowcaller: *to
[01:45] Murska: 'Come on, don't go stealing now.'
[01:46] Shadowcaller: "Hey, we are being hunted by demons and they just left it there, I say we have all right in the world."
[01:47] Murska: 'No, we don't. And we don't even have a reason to.'
[01:48] Shadowcaller: "I wouldn't take anything we don't need. I doubt I will really take anything, I'm just going to look around."
[01:49] Murska: He sighs. 'It's your choice.'
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "Aw, come on. You can follow me if you like… make sure I'm not being a bad girl." Luna chuckles.
[01:50] Murska: 'Don't I have to prepare breakfast?'
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "You can ask Arim to do that, just give him a good shove… come on, it will be fun!"
[01:52] Murska: 'Hm.' He says, amused. 'All right then, if you insist.'
[01:53] Shadowcaller: (Sec, need something to eat…)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (changing comp…)
[02:07] Shadowcaller: —-
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Luna smiles while waving the poor hen back and fourth "Great! So are you or I going to wake my brother?"
[02:10] Murska: 'I think that's your job.' He laughs.
[02:11] Shadowcaller: "Then you hold this." She gives him the hen, dose he have any gloves?
[02:11] Happy: Karen is sitting awake, wrapped in a blanket, watching Arim sleep. >.>
[02:12] Murska: He does but he pretty much never wears them.
[02:12] Murska: Due to his power.
[02:13] Shadowcaller: (Right… he takes it without any gloves then?)
[02:13] Murska: Yup
[02:13] Murska: and if it struggles he freezes it in place
[02:13] Shadowcaller: Luna gives Karen a glance as she enters the mill "Your up?"
[02:14] Shadowcaller: It struggles, so I guess he have to do that.
[02:14] Happy: "Heard you and Derek — father — talking. Not long."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "…you did?" Luna looks a bit uncomfortable "Eh, well we are only going away a while. Don't worry I take good care of the old man Karen."
[02:18] Shadowcaller: *I will
[02:18] Happy: "I trust you." Karen says.
[02:18] Happy: "And he's not /that/ old."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "I know he isn't, I'm just messing with you. He looks very good for his age…"
[02:20] Shadowcaller: "And… thanks for trusting me. It means a lot."
[02:21] Happy: "I didn't hear everything you said. But if you come across any silver, I can use it on the arrows I make. It's not hard to set up a makeshift forge for small melts."
[02:24] Shadowcaller: "I'll remember that…" She looks down on her brothers bandaged leg and then glances at her "Do you happend to know how to prepare an hen? And cock it."
[02:25] Happy: "I can manage." she says, with a grimace. "Don't expect miracles."
[02:27] Shadowcaller: "As long as burn it, you should be in the clear." Luna pauses, taking a moment to think "Do you like me to kill it for you"?
[02:29] Happy: "Nah, I've done this part before. Hang upside down first? let the blood drain? And then pluck it? Or am I thinking of it in the wrong order?"
[02:33] * Aegnor has left the conversation.
[02:38] Shadowcaller: (whoops.)
[02:38] Shadowcaller: (can someone invite Murska? I had to use the toilet >.>)
[02:39] *
moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[02:39] Shadowcaller: (sorry was using the bath room >.>)
[02:39] Shadowcaller: (And this comp don't show me as busy.)
[02:40] Shadowcaller: "No, you got it right…" Luna steps outside "Derek, Karen is going to take care of the breakfast."
[02:41] Murska: 'All right.' He smiles.
[02:41] Shadowcaller: "…have you fronzen it in places?" She glances at the motionless hen a bit suprised.
[02:42] Shadowcaller: *place
[02:42] Murska: 'Yup. It's easier.'
[02:43] Shadowcaller: "Uh, right. Well, unfreeze it and give it to her, I'm waiting."
[02:44] Murska: He does
[02:45] Happy: Karen cringes as she takes it, but it's not her first time handling a live chicken, so she manages okay.
[02:47] Shadowcaller: Luna takes Dereks hand without hesitation "See you in a bit Karen."
[02:49] Happy: Karen contemplates the job ahead of her, thinking that she /could/ kiss Arim awake, and then he'd probably do it for her… but that wasn't fare. He needed his rest. So she'd get as far as she could, and if she needed help, then she'd kiss him….
[02:49] Happy: But of course by the time she reaches that point, she's far too icky with chicken blood and parts to even think about kissing someone >.<
[02:50] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[02:50] Shadowcaller: (She could clean herself off in the nearby river.)
[02:51] Happy: (she will… but not before she finishes the job now)
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Luna and Derek arrive at the old place, there is a wall sorrunding it and the grind is closed. Luna blinks them inside however. Beyond the wall, there are two buildings, one is a old chapel, the other is the mansion itself. It got two floors, the door is closed. There is also a area for the chickens, they can hear them cackle.
[02:58] Shadowcaller: Luna moves towards the chapel that is so weathered and overgrown with greenery that the grey stone rubble seems more like natural stone then former foundation that once were a part of the building.
[03:02] Shadowcaller: (…)
[03:08] Murska: Derek walks next to her. Then he suddenly smirks.
[03:09] Shadowcaller: Luna glances back at him and raises an eyebrow "Seeing something funny?"
[03:10] Murska: 'No, just thought of something.'
[03:10] Shadowcaller: "Of what? No use keeping it a secret now." She replies with a smile.
[03:11] Murska: 'Well, isn't it usually the other way around? Father is left home to do the chores while daughter goes off on a date?'
[03:12] Shadowcaller: "…a date?" Luna suddenly blushes.
[03:12] Murska: He laughs. 'Not quite ordinary, I'd say.'
[03:14] Murska: brb food
[03:14] Shadowcaller: "Err… not really no…" She dosen't seem able to meet his eyes, looking in another direction.
[03:15] Murska: 'Relax, I'm just teasing.'
[03:15] Happy: Does Arim wake up before she's done?
[03:15] Shadowcaller: "…of course you do." Luna says, sounding a bit embarassed.
[03:16] Murska: 'Unless you want it to be a date?' He grins.
[03:17] Shadowcaller: She can hear Arim move inside the mill.
[03:18] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh "I don't think Karen would like that."
[03:19] Happy: Karen watches to see if he looks out a window at her.
[03:21] Murska: He shrugs. 'Oh well.'
[03:22] Shadowcaller: Derek and Luna pass by a slumping wall, bearing a freshly painted serie of symbols. Three Y's arranged in a triangle so that the top element of each Y touch the other two Y's. In the center socreated is painted a staring eye. "Do you want it to be?"
[03:22] Shadowcaller: Arim is slowly getting out of the mill, halting.
[03:23] Shadowcaller: How dose Karen look?
[03:23] Murska: 'I don't know. It doesn't seem very romantic.' He smiles, then glances at the symbol. 'Hmm.'
[03:24] Shadowcaller: Luna's eyes are drawn to the symbols as well, "Hm, didn't see that before."
[03:24] Happy: She looks like she's been cleaning a chicken :P
[03:24] Happy: not at her best
[03:25] Shadowcaller: "Oh moon, you should have woke me up Karen, I could have helped you."
[03:26] Murska: 'So it appeared just now?'
[03:26] Happy: "You needed rest, and I was already awake."
[03:26] Shadowcaller: "No, I just didn't see it… ugh, I suddenly got a headace…"
[03:28] Shadowcaller: Arim looks at her affectionly "But look at you, your clothes are all messy, where did you find a chicken anyway?"
[03:28] Murska: Derek steps closer. 'Are you all right?'
[03:28] Happy: "Your sister found it… somewhere… I don't know where. She and my dad went to check it out."
[03:29] Happy: She also gives him an affectionate look, but doesn't step closer to him. "I'm almost done. Then I can go and get cleaned up."
[03:29] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… it started just now…"
[03:29] Shadowcaller: (Luna.)
[03:30] Shadowcaller: Arim nods "I could take care of the rest if you want."
[03:30] Happy: "But you're clean. No sense both of us getting all icky."
[03:31] Happy: "Why don't you prepare the fire and whatever you do to cook it? I'm a terrible cook."
[03:33] Shadowcaller: "I could get some spices from Neria's backpack… I'll be back in a moment." Arim says with a smile and halts back towards the mill.
[03:33] Happy: "Careful with that foot!"
[03:34] Happy: Karen finally finishes the job, probably having taken 4x as long as Luna would have.
[03:35] Shadowcaller: By then Arim have gotten the spices and have started a small fire.
[03:36] Happy: she gives him the chicken parts. "I'm going to go and wash," she says. She gives him a mischievous smile. "I'll be right over there" *points* "So no peeking"
[03:36] Shadowcaller: Luna sigh "I can deal with it… let's just check around."
[03:37] Shadowcaller: Arim blushes deeply "No, of course not."
[03:38] Happy: "And if you did, that would be very bad, and I'd have to get revenge." And with a giggle, she goes off to wash.
[03:38] Murska: 'If you're sure. If it gets worse, let's head back so you can rest.'
[03:39] Shadowcaller: She nods and then slowly walks over the chapel grounds.
[03:39] Murska: Derek follows her, quite close since he's worried.
[03:39] Shadowcaller: Arim is not going to look on Karen. >.>
[03:40] Happy: She's a little disappointed, but she kind of guessed he would need an explicit invitation for that.
[03:40] Shadowcaller: (And is wolfy offline?)
[03:41] Happy: he's still in the other chat
[03:41] Wolfbane: (here)
[03:41] Shadowcaller: Eventually, Derek might notice that the earth he is standing on is covering weakened floorboards.
[03:41] * moc.liamtoh|a-ruohhtnevele#moc.liamtoh|a-ruohhtnevele (Elly) has joined the conversation.
[03:41] *
ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng#ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng (General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp) has joined the conversation.
[03:41] Shadowcaller: (Oh… hi.)
[03:42] Elly: ( >.> )
[03:42] General Shrimp: (…)
[03:42] Murska: Wait, so
[03:42] Murska: He's standing on ground which isn't ground but instead a hidden floor?
[03:43] Shadowcaller: Well, the earth is covering a hidden floor, yes.
[03:43] Wolfbane: (Sorry, Elly, Shrimp, I killed you both hours ago. v.v)
[03:43] Wolfbane: =P
[03:43] Murska: 'Wait.'
[03:43] Shadowcaller: (:P)
[03:43] General Shrimp: (Oh, I see. GG and all that :P)
[03:43] Elly: ( Ohreally? )
[03:44] Shadowcaller: "Huh?" Luna says, she dosen't seem able to concentrate all that well, which might be the reason she haven't noticed it yet.
[03:45] Murska: He touches her arm and points down. 'What's this?'
[03:45] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean…?" She looks down on the ground.
[03:46] Shadowcaller: Suddenly the ground gives away underneath you.
[03:46] Murska: Called it.
[03:46] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…)
[03:47] Shadowcaller: And you find yourself hitting the cold floor of a cellar. (If Hecor and Wren wants, they can wake up now.)
[03:47] Elly: ( o.o? )
[03:47] General Shrimp: (Guess what! I have no idea what's going on! There's a surprise…)
[03:48] Shadowcaller: (Well, Luna and Derek are checking out a nearby manor (close to the mill.)
[03:48] Elly: Wren goes through a few phases of spontaneous combustion, then runs naked through downtown London.
[03:48] Elly: …
[03:48] Murska: Derek tries to catch Luna so she doesn't hit her head or anything.
[03:48] General Shrimp: (Oh, I s-what?)
[03:48] Murska: Happy! Take a pic!
[03:48] Elly: (I didn't know what else to do. =p )
[03:49] General Shrimp: (Have Wren wake up? I dunno.)
[03:49] Elly: (We didn't have a clue where we were. …aside from dead, maybe. So, London had to be a reasonable place, right?) Wren stretches out, jeeze, floors are not comfortable.
[03:50] Shadowcaller: As Derek's is a bit heavier then Luna, he lands first and she lands on top of him as he tried to catch her…
[03:50] General Shrimp: Well, Wren could always have used Hector as a matress.
[03:50] Elly: >.> Uh huh.
[03:50] Shadowcaller: (I include your armor there.)
[03:51] General Shrimp: Aaanyway, Hector as usual is still fast asleep.
[03:51] Shadowcaller: Arim is cooking the food as Karen returns, he is blusing a bit as he see her. "You look much better…"
[03:52] Shadowcaller: Luna utters the first words after their fall. "Ouch…"
[03:53] Shadowcaller: *word
[03:53] Happy: She slips an arm around his waist. "You didn't peek."
[03:54] Shadowcaller: "Of course not, I would never do that against you…"
[03:54] Murska: 'Are you okay?'
[03:54] Elly: And Wren will get up to poke Hector awake, "Come on, sleepyhead."
[03:56] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, are you?" Luna blinks and seems to be reminded how close they are to each other, she gets up.
[03:56] Happy: "But you wanted to," she whispers mischievously in his ear.
[03:56] General Shrimp: "Hrmm?" Hector rolls over, still stubornly staying asleep.
[03:56] Murska: 'Sure.' He gets up after her, looking around.
[03:57] Shadowcaller: Arim blushes even more, "Well… I…" He stammers.
[03:57] Elly: Wren sighs at him, and gets up, going out of the upstairs to go wander and see where the others are.
[03:58] Happy: She giggles, and kisses his ear.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: There appears to be a singel large basement, partly covered in rubble, he can see the remains of a broken stair.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: Looking around he also can see two shapes laying on the floor near the rubble.
[04:00] Murska: What kind of shapes?
[04:00] Happy: Wren will see the kids flirting over breakfast.
[04:00] Happy: starting to smell good, though not cooked yet.
[04:00] Shadowcaller: Human shapes.
[04:01] Murska: He glances at Luna's wrist where he assumes the bracelet is and steps closer to the shapes.
[04:01] Elly: Those rascally kids! =p Wren smiles and waves good morning to them, "Hey you two." She continues on around toward the door, though.
[04:01] General Shrimp: Hector sighs and rolls over again, slowly pulling himself to a semi-upright position. Then he notices everyone else has already gone elsewhere.
[04:01] Shadowcaller: It's two skeletons, dressed in fragments of silk robes.
[04:02] Shadowcaller: Luna looks around as well, but in another direction.
[04:03] Murska: 'Looks like the place wasn't left behind.'
[04:03] Happy: "You know… you saved my life yesterday," Karen says to Arim.
[04:03] Shadowcaller: "Uh… well.. no not really…"
[04:03] Happy: "Does that mean I owe mine to you now?"
[04:04] General Shrimp: Shortly afterwards, in his leather armour once more, Hector follows his nose to the source of the smell.
[04:04] Shadowcaller: "You don't need to go by the same code as I do Karen."
[04:05] Shadowcaller: "Just great… and a headace to that." Luna says with a sigh as she glances in the direction Derek is looking at.
[04:05] Happy: She just looks into his eyes, smiling, until Hector's arrival interrupts them. "Oh… Um… I'm not sure it's finished cooking yet." *blushing*
[04:06] Shadowcaller: If he is looking around some more, he will see a desk in the room.
[04:06] General Shrimp: "Heh, don't let me interrupt you." Hector chuckles, "What's for breakfast?"
[04:06] Murska: 'This place might be dangerous. I don't want anything more to collapse on top of us.'
[04:07] Shadowcaller: The desk is rottening, there appears to be a huge book chained to it.
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "True… question is how we get up."
[04:09] Murska: 'I can do that.'
[04:09] Elly: >.> Wren slips outside and wanders in the hopefully nonraining woods without notice. >.>
[04:09] Murska: How far up is it?
[04:09] Shadowcaller: (Not raining anymore.)
[04:09] Elly: ^_^
[04:10] Shadowcaller: A few meters. Luna approches the desk and let's out a slight gasp.
[04:10] Murska: 'Hm?'
[04:10] Shadowcaller: "…the book it's…" She points at the book chained to the desk.
[04:10] Murska: He walks to her. 'What?'
[04:11] Shadowcaller: It appears to be bounded in a brown material, skin-like…
[04:11] Murska: 'Oh, eww.'
[04:11] Shadowcaller: It's worm eaten and worn.
[04:12] Shadowcaller: "I want to get out of here."
[04:12] Elly: (And now the stick of poking!)
[04:12] Murska: 'Yeah, let's get out.'
[04:12] Murska: He walks closer to the hole and looks upwards a bit.
[04:12] Shadowcaller: (Thats human skin by the way^^)
[04:12] Murska: (yeah)
[04:12] General Shrimp: (Blech…)
[04:12] Elly: ( Don't touch anything! Wyrmstone! D= )
[04:12] Murska: 'You got a rope?'
[04:13] General Shrimp: Hector looks at the food, grumbles briefly about it not being ready, shrugs, and heads out to get a breath of fresh air.
[04:13] Shadowcaller: Luna takes off her backpack "No, but we could always use that chain…"
[04:13] Murska: 'I'm not too sure I trust it.'
[04:14] Murska: He raises his foot into the air as high as he can and locks his boot in place.
[04:14] Elly: Wren is already gone around the corner, following the stream that runs by/under the watermill.
[04:14] Shadowcaller: Arim seems relived that the others are gone. "It smells wonderful Karen." He says with a smile.
[04:15] Shadowcaller: Derek dose so to Luna's suprise.
[04:15] Murska: Then he stands on the boot, in the air. 'Woo, I can fly.'
[04:15] Shadowcaller: "You have no idea how silly that looks do you?"
[04:16] Murska: 'Want to hop on?'
[04:17] Shadowcaller: "I can try to teleport up there… could grab on to something before I fell."
[04:17] Murska: 'Isn't that kind of dangerous?'
[04:18] General Shrimp: Hector leans against the building and goes through a few stretching exercises. He needs something to help wake him up…
[04:18] Murska: 'But first let me test this even works.'
[04:18] Shadowcaller: "I guess. What are you going to do?"
[04:18] Murska: He raises his other boot higher and locks it in place just as he lets off the other one.
[04:19] Shadowcaller: Holding into it I guess?
[04:19] Murska: well yeah :P
[04:20] Shadowcaller: He hangs there in the air then. "…I hope you aren't leaving me here are you?"
[04:20] Murska: 'Of course not.'
[04:20] Murska: He drops back down.
[04:21] Murska: 'Now to make this easier…' Is there any solid-looking logs or such flat surfaces around?
[04:21] Shadowcaller: (*pokes Happy*) In the cellar or above them? The cellar is made of stones.
[04:22] Murska: In the cellar
[04:22] Murska: something loose
[04:22] Murska: that doesn't look like it'll break if you stand on it
[04:22] Shadowcaller: The rubble is mostly made of stones, most of the wood here is slightly rooten as the desk was.
[04:22] Happy: "Admit it, Arim. You're my hero."
[04:22] Murska: Well, any flat enough stones to stand on?
[04:23] Shadowcaller: Yeah.
[04:23] Murska: He grabs one and raises it to chest height, locking it in place.
[04:24] Shadowcaller: "I'm no hero, all I did was to run you know? Not particulary brave of me. You on the other hand…" He gives her a kiss.
[04:24] Shadowcaller: Right, his boot falls down.
[04:24] Murska: ('Oh come on, neither of you did anything')
[04:24] Murska: Well, his boot is assumedly in his leg
[04:25] Murska: he let go of it back when he dropped down
[04:25] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[04:25] Happy: She kisses him back. "But I was too scared to run. If you hadn't acted, they would have gotten me."
[04:26] Shadowcaller: "Nonsens, Derek would have been there defending you."
[04:26] Murska: 'Wait… hm. I think we have to give up on the helpful start. I'll need to carry you up on my back.'
[04:27] General Shrimp: Hector sighs. Early morning stretching exercises done, but he doesn't want to disturb those two when they're so easily embarrassed. He sighs and heads to the stream for a wash.
[04:28] Shadowcaller: "Really? Well, I'm a growing girl so be prepared to lift some weights." Luna replies with a smile.
[04:30] Shadowcaller: "And if you hadn't dared come into that mansion, I would still have been stuck there as a slave."
[04:30] Murska: He takes hold of the stone, lets it go and lowers it to the ground out of the way.
[04:30] Shadowcaller: (Arim.)
[04:30] Murska: 'All right, but hold on tight. I won't be able to keep hold of you if you fall.'
[04:30] Elly: ( o.o Awkward confrontation at 12 o'clock. )
[04:31] General Shrimp: Hector, now at the stream, takes his clothes off, shivers briefly, then starts washing.
[04:32] Shadowcaller: Luna climbs up on his back and holds on tight. "Okay, go then…"
[04:32] Shadowcaller: She isn't that heavy really.
[04:32] Elly: And around this point Wren starts heading back, and spots Hector in the stream, before hiding amoungst the trees to watch. ( :-O )
[04:32] Shadowcaller: But still quite the weight.
[04:32] Murska: He starts walking upwards, at much smaller steps this time to avoid mistakes which would probably hurt his legs.
[04:33] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[04:33] General Shrimp: (Sneaky gypsy!)
[04:33] Happy: "Then we owe each other." Karen says.
[04:34] Elly: ( …is SC invisible, or did he drop? ._. )
[04:34] General Shrimp: Um…so Hector is being watched? Probably a good thing he doesn't know. His normal "surprised" reaction would probably result in him falling over and being dragged into the water wheel. Anyway, he's nearly finished. He waits a few minutes to dry off, then starts putting his clothes back on.
[04:34] Shadowcaller: Arim nods "Great, then we know everything we do is completely without debt."
[04:34] Shadowcaller: (Still here.)
[04:34] Elly: ( Huh. )
[04:35] Elly: Wren smiles, and heads around the other side of the watermill, in order to get to the door from a different direction than Hector.
[04:35] Shadowcaller: He strokes away a few of karens strains of hair from her face.
[04:35] Shadowcaller: Okay, Derek is going upwards..
[04:36] General Shrimp: And Hector hasn't a clue that Wren was there at all. After another stretch or two, he starts heading back.
[04:37] Happy: "Yes," she says, looking into his eyes. "This is because we want to."
[04:39] General Shrimp: Ah, perfect timing for maximum awkwardness! Hector walks back in.
[04:39] Shadowcaller: "Yeah…" He ,
[04:39] Elly: >.>
[04:39] Murska: Assumedly Derek reaches the way outside at some point
[04:39] Shadowcaller: Looks at her and then notices Hector and blushes, stepping away a bit from Karen.
[04:40] Shadowcaller: (Wait, explain to me once again what he is doing?)
[04:40] General Shrimp: "Having a nice conversation while I was out?" Hector winks at Arim.
[04:40] Elly: ( He's walking on sunshine. >.> )
[04:41] Shadowcaller: "Uh… yeah." Arim replies glancing away, "Very nice."
[04:43] General Shrimp: (*Whacks with newspaper* Don't be silly! He's walking in the air!)
"Oh good, how long before breakfast is ready?"
[04:44] Murska: Derek is walking up to the hole where they fell down from
[04:44] Happy: (i'll stay logged in to do the log)
[04:44] Happy: (see you tomorrow)
[04:44] Shadowcaller: Arim looks at Karen "Eh, I think it's about done now right…" (Well how did he get up there?)
[04:44] Shadowcaller: (See you.)
[04:46] Murska: By walking
[04:46] Happy: (it made sense to me)
[04:46] Murska: Imagine a ladder
[04:46] Happy: Karen and Arim continue being lovesick teenagers >.<
[04:46] Happy: gnight
[04:46] Murska: now imagine him climbing it
[04:46] Murska: then imagine the ladder isn't there
[04:46] Shadowcaller: (We need to continue Wolfys plot as well >.>) (What did he do? It's not like it didn't make sense.)
[04:47] General Shrimp: Although, of course, if Luna shifts too much they'll fall over backwards! :P
[04:47] Wolfbane: (Make me suddenly appear? >.>)
[04:47] Murska: Except that the boot's still there so it'd wrench Derek's leg
[04:47] Murska: but he's deliberately leaning forwards a bit to keep the balance better.
[04:48] Shadowcaller: (So what did he freeze into places?)
[04:48] Shadowcaller: *place
[04:48] Shadowcaller: (And wolfy, Happy should be here for that:P)
[04:48] Shadowcaller: (Then again, you might be eaten by Lugia…)
[04:49] Elly: >.>
[04:49] Murska: He froze his boot, balanced himself on top of it, then froze his other boot a bit higher up in the air, taking another step
[04:49] Murska: etc.
[04:49] Shadowcaller: Rj
[04:50] Shadowcaller: *right… I would say be had to restart at least once.
[04:50] Elly: Rj?
[04:50] Elly: >.> Ah.
[04:51] Elly: Night!
[04:51] * Elly has left the conversation.
[04:51] Shadowcaller: But eventually he makes his way up.
[04:51] General Shrimp: Well, since everyone else is leaving, I'm off! Later folks.
[04:52] Shadowcaller: Luna leaps off him and gives him a quick hug "Thank the moon…" (See you shrimp.)
[04:52] *
General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp has left the conversation.
[04:52] Shadowcaller: "I thought we might be stuck there forever."
[04:53] Murska: 'Derek to the rescue. What a weird place…'
[04:54] Shadowcaller: "It didn't look that wierd…" She sigh "My fault we ended up there."
[04:57] Murska: 'Do you still have that headache?'
[05:03] Shadowcaller: "Yeah…"
[05:03] Shadowcaller: (Any new plans wolfy?:P)
[05:03] Murska: 'Let's head back to the others then.'
[05:04] Wolfbane: =P
[05:04] Shadowcaller: "Fine…" As they are getting away from the chapel Luna talks again "…It's gone now."
[05:05] Murska: 'Maybe it's something there.'
[05:05] Shadowcaller: "Magic? That symbol…"
[05:06] Murska: 'Might be.'
[05:07] Shadowcaller: "What should we do? Check out the manor as well? Seems a bit risky considering what we saw down there."
[05:07] Shadowcaller: "Thought it might be very useful…"
[05:10] Murska: 'Do you really think what we might find is worth it?'

[13:58] Shadowcaller: There isn't more to find in the first rooms by the way.
[14:01] Murska: Well, we check more rooms then
[14:04] Shadowcaller: Okay, Luna takes the books with her. The next room is another storage room, mostly devouted to broken furniture and other burnable items. The fourth room have no door, you have to enter it from the first room, it's the dining room completed with a long expensive-looking dark table, a built-in sideboard and seven chairs.
[14:04] Shadowcaller: Three places are set and unused. Rice soup rots in a large wooden bowl.
[14:07] Murska: silverware?
[14:08] Shadowcaller: Continuing further to the fifth room which appears to be the kitchen with an in contrast to the rest of the house very modern wood-fed stove and a few boards with foodstuff inside them.
[14:08] Shadowcaller: Yes, but it's hardly pure silver, just lining.
[14:11] Shadowcaller: Some of the food might still be eatiable, there is dried meat, rice (which is something only Luna recognize), some bottles of wine. The rest of the food have most likely been eaten by rats judging by the spoor left behind.
[14:12] Shadowcaller: At the end of the corridor there is a stair to the left leading upwards and one to the right leading downwards.
[14:13] Murska: dried meat is good
[14:13] Murska: we go up since everything valuable is there
[14:15] Shadowcaller: Right which brings you to yet another corridor. There are only rooms on the left side here thought, on the right side there are three windows, all with curtains. They appear to have been boarded shut, like all other windows of the house. There are four smaller rooms on the upper floor.
[14:17] Shadowcaller: In the first room there is a bathtub, a medival toilet completed with a drain. A brackish pool of water still remains in the bathtub.
[14:17] Murska: 'The place has been abandoned in a hurry so what's with the boarded windows…'
[14:19] Shadowcaller: "Good spotting, I never thought of that… maybe someone just didn't like to clean after themselves?"
[14:19] Murska: He shrugs.
[14:21] Shadowcaller: (Oh, you forgot one room downstairs… it had backdoor and was filled with clothes used outside, like coats and such.)
[14:21] Murska: (no, you forgot)
[14:21] Shadowcaller: (Well, yeah:P)
[14:21] Murska: :P
[14:22] Shadowcaller: The second room upstairs contains a bedframe, bare bed springs and en empty dresser.
[14:23] Shadowcaller: It looks like no one have been using it for many years.
[14:23] Shadowcaller: *an
[14:25] Shadowcaller: The third room upstairs have green walls instead of white as the rest of the house, it have two small beds, a coffert filled with wooden toys.
[14:26] Shadowcaller: It looks like someone have been using this at some point, unlike the other room.
[14:28] Shadowcaller: The fourth room looks like an ordinary bedroom with an double bed, bookshelf and a window view. There are more holy releics inside of this room, you can still smell rosemary inside of here.
[14:28] Shadowcaller: Someone was using this room not too long ago.
[14:28] Shadowcaller: *relics
[14:28] Murska: Any valuables?
[14:31] Shadowcaller: Not what you can see, there is a book about the creators secrets, but nothing really valuable. Suddenly you hear a thumping noise emating from the first room.
[14:31] Murska: I'm of course assuming you tell me if silver starts to glow. :P
[14:31] Murska: We go check it out
[14:32] Shadowcaller: The silver dosen't start to glow. You enter the first room but can't see anything there, but there is now a terrible stench that wasn't there before.
[14:33] Murska: 'What the heck.'
[14:33] Shadowcaller: Suddenly a pool of blood starts to form on the floor.
[14:33] Murska: From where, thin air?
[14:33] Shadowcaller: It seems to come from the floor itself.
[14:34] Murska: 'Is somebody trying to make us think the place is haunted to scare us away?'
[14:35] Shadowcaller: "Pools of blood…" Luna winches slightly "Let's just take what we need and get out."
[14:36] Murska: 'Hm. That floor too. It was sort of worn but we had stopped moving and it didn't give any warning noises…'
[14:37] Shadowcaller: "Great, so we got a haunted house?"
[14:37] Murska: 'No such thing.'
[14:37] Shadowcaller: She stares at the pool that suddenly stops growing.
[14:38] Murska: 'There aren't demons here and this isn't the style of angels either.'
[14:38] Murska: He crouches down to look at the blood from closer.
[14:39] Shadowcaller: It looks like blood, quite fresh.
[14:39] Murska: He touches it with his finger and smells it.

[14:40] Shadowcaller: It smells like… blood.
[14:41] Shadowcaller: (Not sure if you can tell what the blood comes from by smelling it.)
[14:41] Murska: Not really.
[14:41] Murska: He's a human.
[14:42] Shadowcaller: (Well, what type of blood it is I mean.)
[14:42] Murska: Yeah, humans can't do that
[14:42] Murska: unless it's something weird like acidic demon blood :P
[14:42] Murska: 'Hmm.
[14:42] Murska: '
[14:42] Shadowcaller: Nope, it's normal red blood.
[14:43] Murska: He looks around. 'Oh well, let's continue looking.'
[14:44] Shadowcaller: Suddenly the window inside the room starts to rattle.
[14:45] Shadowcaller: Luna glances at the window, looking a bit spooked "What is that? Your saying thats not magic?"
[14:47] Murska: He shrugs. 'If magic were like that, the world would be so much better.'
[14:47] Murska: 'My experience is that if someone with magic wants us out of here, he'll rather use a fireball than rattle some windows.'
[14:48] Shadowcaller: "True, but maybe it dosen't have that type of magic?"
[14:48] Murska: 'Well, rattling windows doesn't do us any harm, now does it?'
[14:49] Murska: 'Then again, it makes me doubt there's anything valuable to be found here in the obvious places. Whoever's hiding here has taken stuff like that ages ago.'
[14:50] Shadowcaller: "Then why is he still here? Makes no sense living out here in this old house."
[14:50] Murska: 'Plenty of people have something to hide.'
[14:51] Murska: 'I wouldn't doubt this place has a reputation for being a ghost house around here.'
[14:51] Shadowcaller: (How is Derek positioned inside the room?)
[14:51] Murska: Near the pool of blood.
[14:53] Shadowcaller: (Right.) Luna sigh "Well, let's check the basement first before we go. I can't imagine a human would be behind this, it makes no sense haunting trying to scare people away from a house that's locked up like this."
[14:53] Murska: 'I can't imagine anything else bothering with something like that.'
[14:55] Shadowcaller: "How would they do it anyway?" Luna says as she is walking down the stairs.
[14:56] Murska: 'Ask them.' He walks back out of the room.
[14:57] Shadowcaller: They go down to the basement I assume?
[14:57] Murska: If they've checked upstairs, sure.
[14:58] Shadowcaller: The basement is completely dark, you are going down the stairs, but can't see anything.
[14:58] Murska: 'Let's go make a torch first.'
[14:59] Shadowcaller: "Fine, I go and find some suitable materials."
[15:00] Murska: 'I'll come with you.'
[15:00] Shadowcaller: You go and make a torch then, you can hear more thumping sounds from the room upstairs.
[15:01] Murska: 'Weird…'
[15:02] Shadowcaller: "I'm used to odd sounds in the forest, but in a closed off space like this… it's creepy."
[15:03] Shadowcaller: "You got no where to run and there is something with you…" She shudders.
[15:03] Murska: 'Whatever's making it should know it has no effect. Unless instead of a way to scare people off it's a way to gain their attention.'
[15:05] Shadowcaller: "Possible I guess." You make a torch and go down the basement again, now you can see that the stairs are very rickery.
[15:05] Shadowcaller: *rickety
[15:06] Murska: Is there a door to the basement?
[15:06] Shadowcaller: (Okay, brb a while, I need to take a walk with my dog.)
[15:06] Murska: k
[15:16] Wolfbane: .
[15:29] Wolfbane: ..
[15:29] Happy: hi
[15:30] Murska: hi
[15:31] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[15:32] Shadowcaller: There is no door to the basement itself, but there are a room within it with a door.
[15:32] Murska: 'Want to stay up in case the stairs collapse aswell?'
[15:34] Shadowcaller: "No worries Derek, watch." Luna dissapears in a blue light and you find her standin on the floor of the basement instead. "Tada!"
[15:34] Shadowcaller: *standing
[15:35] Murska: He laughs and heads down the stairs. 'I won't have to carry you up this time, then.'
[15:36] Shadowcaller: "Hey, wait, I can-" Sya manages to say before the section of the stairs you are standing on collapses underneath you.
[15:36] Shadowcaller: *She
[15:36] Murska: He stops himself in the air.
[15:36] Shadowcaller: What part of yourself?
[15:37] Murska: Chestplate.
[15:37] Murska: The armour, that is.
[15:37] Shadowcaller: Your armor suspends you in the air then.
[15:37] Murska: 'Ew. So knew that'd happen.'
[15:37] Murska: How high?
[15:37] Shadowcaller: Not very, maybe a 4-5 meters drop.
[15:38] Murska: Well, he lets go of the armour then stops his boot in the air after a two meter fall, slows himself down and then lets himself fall the rest of the way.
[15:38] Shadowcaller: (Actually, he have falled a bit, so I would say 3-4 meters.)
[15:39] Shadowcaller: *fallen
[15:39] Shadowcaller: But he manages to get down unscratched at least.
[15:39] Shadowcaller: Luna runs up to him "This house dosen't like you."
[15:40] Shadowcaller: She helps him up.
[15:40] Murska: He brushes off. 'Sure doesn't.'
[15:40] Murska: 'Well, this time it's your turn to get us up. But let's search the room first.'
[15:44] Shadowcaller: In the light of the torch, you can see that the walls of the room are made of stone, except one wall that is made of closely fitted boards instead. There is one small room inside the basement with a door. On the floor there isa mess of dust, piles of earth, a rusty shovel and a few sacks laying around.
[15:45] Shadowcaller: You can see some movement. Rats.
[15:45] Shadowcaller: *is a
[15:47] Murska: Is the door on the wall made of wood?
[15:48] Shadowcaller: Yes.
[15:49] Happy: http://icanhascheezburger.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/funny-pictures-squirrel-has-an-army.jpg
[15:49] Murska: He walks to the door then.
[15:50] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…) He walks up to the door while Luna is looking around inside the room.
[15:51] Murska: Is it locked?
[15:51] Shadowcaller: Dosen't look like it is.
[15:51] Murska: He opens it.
[15:52] Shadowcaller: The room inside is empty, the walls are completely blackened.
[15:52] Shadowcaller: *the walls inside of it
[16:01] Shadowcaller: …
[16:04] Murska: Blackened with what?
[16:04] Shadowcaller: Coal.
[16:05] Murska: Are they made of rock?
[16:05] Shadowcaller: Yes, these walls are made of rock as well.
[16:05] Murska: He turns back to Luna. 'Nothing here either.'
[16:06] Shadowcaller: "Strange…" Luna leans down and picks up something "Hey I found a dagger."
[16:07] Murska: He walks to her. 'Hm?'
[16:08] Shadowcaller: She shows him a old knife whose blade is coated with oddly-thick rust.
[16:09] Murska: 'Odd.' He looks around once more.
[16:09] Murska: 'Well, let's head back up.'
[16:10] Shadowcaller: Suddenly he see how the knife leaves Luna's hand and goes straight for his throat.
[16:10] Shadowcaller: Flying.
[16:10] Murska: He tries to grab it
[16:10] Murska: if he touches it he'll freeze it
[16:12] Shadowcaller: The dagger moves at a suprising speed and dodges his hand, stabbing him in the shoulder, he feels a dull pain as his armor protects him quite well.
[16:12] Murska: Assumedly it didn't get through then
[16:12] Shadowcaller: Nope.
[16:12] Murska: He shields his throat and head with his left hand and chases it with his right.
[16:14] Shadowcaller: The dagger circles around him, going upwards.
[16:14] Shadowcaller: Luna looks a bit paniced and goes closer to him to help.
[16:14] Murska: He cringes and thrusts his right hand towards it palm-first, as if inviting for a stab.
[16:16] Shadowcaller: The dagger goes for his throat.
[16:16] Shadowcaller: Dodging his right hand.
[16:16] Murska: His left hand is protecting his throat.
[16:16] Shadowcaller: How is he protecting it? Just covering it?
[16:16] Murska: How else? He keeps attempting to grab it.
[16:17] Shadowcaller: The dagger goes into his left hand as he attempts to shield his throat.
[16:17] Murska: He stops it right there.
[16:17] Murska: 'Ouch!'
[16:17] Shadowcaller: The dagger is stopped.
[16:17] Murska: He steps back from it, pulling his arm free.
[16:17] Murska: 'All right, you get to say it.'
[16:20] Shadowcaller: Luna rolls her eyes "First we fix you up, then I will say it…" (the tip of the dagger is sticking out on the other side of his hand…)
[16:20] Murska: Eh, I was envisioning him protecting his throat with his arm. Hand doesn't shield the right side of his neck.
[16:21] Shadowcaller: You did say hand:P
[16:21] Murska: Anyway, he pulls his hand off, grimacing from the pain.
[16:22] Murska: So I did. Technically hand is a part of the arm aswell. :P
[16:22] Shadowcaller: Well, sorry for the confusion, but can he really move th dagge if it's frozen?
[16:22] Shadowcaller: *dagger
[16:22] Murska: No, that's why he moves his hand.
[16:22] Shadowcaller: *the
[16:23] Shadowcaller: Can he move his hand if the dagger is frozen? Or do you mean his right hand?
[16:23] Murska: Why wouldn't he be able to move his hand?
[16:24] Shadowcaller: Eh, I guess he can.
[16:24] Happy: no no… you should argue the other way, Murska
[16:24] Shadowcaller: The dagger remains in the air.
[16:24] Happy: then if you stab enemies and freeze a dagger in them, they can't move
[16:24] Murska: Heh.
[16:25] Murska: Technically if I'd have frozen my hand instead as the dagger was hitting, it wouldn't have penetrated
[16:25] Murska: If Derek knew more of anatomy he'd be able to freeze people's hearts
[16:25] Murska: that'd be awesome
[16:26] Shadowcaller: Huh… *writes down on notes*
[16:26] Murska: 'Damned nasty thing…'
[16:27] Shadowcaller: He can feel the foul smell he felt upstairs coming into the room.
[16:27] Shadowcaller: "Dose it hurt much? Do you have any bandage?" Luna moves closer to him, trying to get a closer look on his wound.
[16:28] Happy: wouldn't he actually have to touch their heart?
[16:28] Murska: He can transfer his power through living material.
[16:29] Happy: Arim takes Derek inside demon world… Derek 's demon world up….
[16:29] Shadowcaller: (Not really.)
[16:29] Murska: 'Not really. Let's try and stop the bleeding.'
[16:30] Murska: I doubt freezing a tiny part of demon world would help much :P
[16:30] Shadowcaller: (He can only freeze a small part, and the demon world would absorb them pretty quickly >.>)
[16:31] Shadowcaller: "Okay if I burrow some of your clothes?" Luna says, moving behind him.
[16:31] Murska: 'Sure.'
[16:32] Shadowcaller: He can feel how she opens up his backpack and gets out his clothes "Right, what shirt should be sacrificed?"
[16:33] Murska: He shrugs and tries to smile but cringes instead. 'You're the woman.'
[16:34] Shadowcaller: Luna smiles "Oh, I must have completely forgotten about that." Then she tears off the arm on one of his shirts and makes a make.shift banaged on his arm, making it pretty thight. "Any better?"
[16:35] Murska: 'Let's hope so.' He digs up the healing item.
[16:36] Shadowcaller: He dose so. "What more items do you have?"
[16:37] Shadowcaller: She looks at the artifact curiously.
[16:38] Murska: 'Hey, I don't want to reveal all of my little tricks.' He winks while wrapping the artifact over his wound.
[16:38] Shadowcaller: "Suit yourself, neither will I then…"
[16:40] Shadowcaller: The artifact starts to heal his wounds, slowly.
[16:40] Murska: 'Mhm. What's life without… Ah! Surprises.'
[16:41] Shadowcaller: Luna smiles at him but then glances over at the dagger that still remains suspended in the air "While on the subject of susprises… what should we do with that?"
[16:42] Shadowcaller: *suprises
[16:42] Murska: He takes out his sword.
[16:42] Murska: Then he touches the dagger, switches the freezing to only cover the hilt of the dagger and hammers the blade off.
[16:43] Murska: stepping on it afterwards, just in case.
[16:43] Murska: (Not from the root, though)
[16:44] Shadowcaller: The blade dosen't move.
[16:45] Murska: He picks up the piece.
[16:45] Shadowcaller: He dose so.
[16:45] Shadowcaller: The smell in the room is still quite noticeable.
[16:45] Murska: 'Hm.' He sheathes his sword and takes out a knife. Then he starts scraping off the rust.
[16:45] Shadowcaller: (It's not really rust, just dried blood…)
[16:46] Murska: Well that's quite different. :P
[16:46] Murska: He scrapes it off anyway
[16:46] Shadowcaller: (I did say oddly thick rust >.>)
[16:46] Murska: But you didn't say 'dried blood' :P
[16:46] Murska: Eh, torchlight.
[16:47] Shadowcaller: (Exactly.) The blade looks completely new underneath it.
[16:47] Murska: What's it made of?
[16:48] Shadowcaller: A metal he can't really recognize. It's not stell, silver or any of the metals demon hunters or anyone else he have seen use.
[16:48] Shadowcaller: *steel
[16:48] Shadowcaller: *iron
[16:49] Murska: He drops the piece in his pocket and repeats the procedure of cutting the rest of the dagger's blade into small pieces, then lets go of the hilt once it's harmless.
[16:49] Shadowcaller: He dose so.
[16:50] Shadowcaller: "So what now? Whatever is doing this is still here…"
[16:50] Murska: 'I sort of wonder what it is. But I suppose there's nothing here we want.'
[16:51] Shadowcaller: "Maybe…"
[16:51] Murska: 'Let's get back up.'
[16:51] Happy: (find the silverware cabinet!)
[16:52] Shadowcaller: Luna nods and takes his arm, the next moment you are at the top of the stairs.
[16:52] Murska: The silverware wasn't silver
[16:52] Happy: awww :(
[16:52] Shadowcaller: (Bah, he missed all the good stuff.)
[16:52] Murska: Well, I did say 'we search everything'
[16:53] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, too bad you missed the secret things:P)
[16:53] Murska: That's your fault then. :P
[16:53] Shadowcaller: (I gave you a clue)
[16:54] Shadowcaller: Anyhow, you leave the mansion I guess?
[16:54] Happy: (the wooden wall?)
[16:54] Murska: Mhm.
[16:54] Murska: All three walls of the room behind it were stone
[16:54] Murska: so there was no hidden room
[16:54] Shadowcaller: No, you missunderstand.
[16:54] Shadowcaller: The wooden was was opposite of the stairs.
[16:55] Shadowcaller: *wall
[16:55] Murska: well, the door was on the wooden wall
[16:55] Shadowcaller: No, it wasn't:P
[16:55] Murska: Um, I specifically asked that
[16:55] Murska: and you said 'yes'
[16:55] Murska: Aegnor sanoo:
Is the door on the wall made of wood?
Shadowcaller sanoo:
Yes.
[16:57] Shadowcaller: I read that as 'is the door on the wall (the wall around the room) made of wood?'
[16:58] Shadowcaller: That is, the room in the basement
[16:58] Happy: so… retcon to check out that area?
[16:59] Murska: Well, I meant it as 'is the door placed into the wall the material of which(wall) is wood, as opposed to stone, which the other three walls are made of'
[16:59] Shadowcaller: Yeah, I realized that now
[16:59] Shadowcaller: So I guess you do a retcon…
[17:00] Murska: Back to 'about to blink out'
[17:00] Shadowcaller: Mhm.
[17:00] Murska: 'Hm, wait.'
[17:00] Shadowcaller: "What?" Luna raises an eyebrow.
[17:01] Murska: He walks to the wall. 'Wooden wall means there's something behind it, am I right?'
[17:01] Shadowcaller: (I need to eat now, I be right back… >.>)
[17:14] Shadowcaller: (back.)
[17:14] Shadowcaller: "Eh, maybe?"
[17:15] Murska: 'Why would anyone panel up a single wall in a basement?' He knocks on it.
[17:16] Shadowcaller: "Since I never been in a basement… or hardly in a house…" Derek can feel she strong odour
[17:16] Shadowcaller: *foulr smell coming from the wall.
[17:17] Shadowcaller: *foul
[17:17] Shadowcaller: It sounds like there is an empty space behind it.
[17:19] Murska: 'There.'
[17:19] Shadowcaller: Luna looks uncomfortable "…should we check it out now?"
[17:21] Shadowcaller: "I wonder…" She reaches for her bag.
[17:21] Shadowcaller: Picking out one of the books.
[17:21] Murska: 'Well, I kind of want to know what's up with this place.'
[17:22] Shadowcaller: "So do I of course… this was my ideas wasn't it? But now we know it's magic, it could be dangerous."
[17:23] Shadowcaller: "That dagger for example." She nods towards his wounded hand.
[17:23] Murska: 'True. But that's exactly what people like me are for, is it not?'
[17:24] Shadowcaller: "Your silver isn't shining you know?"
[17:25] Murska: 'So there's nothing to fear, right?' He smiles innocently.
[17:26] Shadowcaller: "Right…" She rolls her eyes "Have you always benn like this?"
[17:26] Shadowcaller: *been
[17:27] Happy: (ask Nora :P )
[17:28] Murska: 'As you said, you dragged me here.' He grins. 'Now let's get through this wall.'
[17:29] Shadowcaller: "Fine, but remember, I don't want to say, 'I told you so' a second time…"
[17:29] Shadowcaller: Luna goes towards the wall.
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (Hm, shall we continue 3e at the same time?)
[17:31] Shadowcaller: (The wall is made of closely fitted boards by the way.)
[17:31] Murska: 'You haven't even said it the first time properly.'
[17:32] Shadowcaller: "Fine." She smiles and then says in a very clear voice "I. Told. You. So." And points at him.
[17:32] Murska: (tiiiired »)
[17:32] Shadowcaller: (Ah >.>)
[17:33] Murska: 'Indeed you did.'
[17:33] Shadowcaller: (Going to sleep then?)
[17:34] Murska: (Mhm.)
[17:34] Shadowcaller: (See you Murska.)
[17:34] Happy: (without finding the phat lewt? O.o )
[17:36] Murska: (Not before we're finished, duh)
[17:36] Shadowcaller: (Ah…)
[17:36] Shadowcaller: You start to remove the boards then?
[17:36] Murska: Yup
[17:37] Shadowcaller: As you do, you can hear squeeking noises everywhere.
[17:39] Murska: What's the rats doing?
[17:39] Shadowcaller: They are coming out of holes in the wall that lies behind the boards.
[17:40] Murska: mhm
[17:40] Shadowcaller: (the upper section of the wooden wall.)
[17:41] Shadowcaller: It a huge swarm of them, they appears to be annyoed, aggrivated by you removing the boards.
[17:42] Murska: 'We have to play pest cleaner too?' »
[17:43] Shadowcaller: "Eww…" while Luna appears to handle a few rats just fine, the sheer number of them appears to creep her out. They are moving against your legs, falling down from the upper wall, gliding along your clothes…
[17:44] Murska: He kicks them aside, takes a step back and draws his sword. 'Ugh.'
[17:45] Shadowcaller: Luna stands back as well, Derek can notice how the latest removed board have revealed an secret opening between two sections of the wooden wall. There are more rats coming out of it.
[17:46] Murska: He slashes out at one.
[17:46] Shadowcaller: He kills it.
[17:46] Murska: Rats assumedly don't separate and run for cover?
[17:46] Shadowcaller: Nope, they start to eat their fallen.
[17:47] Murska: He grabs one of the boards and throws it at the clump of rats at the body.
[17:48] Shadowcaller: The nearby rats flee in panic, but have no way to go, so instead they are just running round in the room, back to you.
[17:48] Murska: Slashy slash. 'Disgusting.'
[17:50] Shadowcaller: Luna seems near panic, going away from the wall.
[17:50] Shadowcaller: *wooden wall
[17:51] Shadowcaller: You kill a few more rats.
[17:53] Shadowcaller: She dissapears in a blink of light and you can see her on the top of the stairs, looking relived.
[17:53] * moc.liamtoh|a-ruohhtnevele#moc.liamtoh|a-ruohhtnevele (Elly) has joined the conversation.

ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng#ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng (General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp) has joined the conversation.
[17:53] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[17:54] Elly: ( >.>! )
[17:54] General Shrimp: *checks watch*
Hey, 2 seconds!
[17:54] Murska: If the rats have learned to stay away from him he returns to the wallboards.
[17:54] Happy: You're popular!
[17:55] Shadowcaller: The rats are still moving around the floor, but keeps an healthy distance away from him now. He can see a earthen floor in the hole of the wall.
[17:55] General Shrimp: Now…what was Hector doing…
And where the hell have those rats come from?
[17:55] Elly: Hector was bothering the lovebirds. And Wren was just knocking on the door, and stepping back in…
[17:55] Elly: (And Derek is in Rat Central )
[17:55] Murska: Keep opening. And I swear if I find a rotting corpse… :P
[17:56] Happy: (Derek and Luna are fighting rats in an abandoned mansion. the others are back at the mill where breakfast is ready)
[17:56] General Shrimp: Ah yes, Hector was deliberately being "friendly" to make things nice and awkward for them.
Maybe he should stop…
[17:57] Happy: Karen turns red and steps back from Arim. "Um… good morning, Hector."
[17:58] General Shrimp: "You know, it's nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about."
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (Can someone past what happend last?) Derek can see a pallet in the center of the room, it appears someone is laying upon it. In the southwest corner there is a table with some pappers curled up on it.
[17:58] Happy: (I'll do it)
[17:59] Murska: He steps in.
[18:03] Shadowcaller: The light of the torch reveals the figure laying on the pallet. It's a drawn, wooden-looking, wizened figure of some six feet, skinny and naked with ghastly wide flaring, saucer-like eyes and a nose like a knife-blade. It have no hair and it's shrunken gums makes his teeth look very long. It gives away a sharp, sweet churning scen. Like rotten corn.
[18:03] Happy: (logs posted)
[18:04] Murska: Weird.
[18:04] Shadowcaller: It looks like it is, or at least was a human.
[18:04] Murska: brb
[18:05] Elly: ( Ha. )
[18:05] Elly: ACK.
[18:05] Shadowcaller: (Gah!)
[18:05] Elly: ( Sorry. o.o )
[18:06] General Shrimp: "Anyway, I've no right to tell you two how to behave. What have we got for breakfast? Whatever it is, it smelled good when I woke up."
[18:07] Happy: "A nice fat hen that Luna found somewhere, and Arim cooked for us."
[18:07] Shadowcaller: "You did most of the efforts Karen."
[18:07] Shadowcaller: "She cleaned it."
[18:08] General Shrimp: "Delicious…"
[18:09] Elly: "I'd say it smells pretty good, too." Wren smiles, wrapping her arms around Hector from behind as she comes back in the door, closing it lightly behind her.
[18:11] General Shrimp: "And good morning to you too!" Hector chuckles and turns round to kiss her, "You didn't wake me this morning…"
[18:12] Elly: "Tried to. You sleep heavy." She keeps smiling up at him, "Think we can get this place a bit more fixed up before Luna and Derek get back from…?" She glances at Arim and Karen, wondering where the other two /had/ gotten off to.
[18:14] General Shrimp: "Well…I didn't know we were planning on staying here for any length of time. What else is there to do anyway?"
[18:16] Happy: "I don't know what the plans are. Can we even get to Derim now?"
[18:16] Happy: (what about the pyramid thingie, Hector?)
[18:16] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, he got that… err, how did he got it past the river?)
[18:16] General Shrimp: (Eh, he'll pick that up later. Also, it went under the river :P)
[18:17] Shadowcaller: (Right, I guess he have it then…)
[18:18] Elly: ( =p )
[18:18] Shadowcaller: (It's about as large as a mans head.)
[18:18] General Shrimp: (Yay…random pyramid thing that may steal their powers if they don't use it right!)
[18:19] Elly: (Then don't play with it, or wait until we get a powerless NPC? )
[18:19] General Shrimp: (He's not gonna play with it! He's sensible!)
[18:19] Happy: (you have a powerless person in the party, remember?)
[18:19] Elly: ( >.>
[18:20] General Shrimp: (*points pyramid at powerful person* *flash of light* *missing person* "oops")
[18:21] Shadowcaller: "I don't know Karen… we need to ask your father once he returns."
[18:25] General Shrimp: "Derim…certainly doesn't seem like a good idea. We have no idea where all those demons ran off to, and next time there may be more of them. Personally I still think we should head for [Insert moutainy place with Lugia's mate here]"
[18:25] Murska: Derek steps closer to the was-a-human
[18:26] Shadowcaller: As he dose so, it suddenly growls.
[18:28] Shadowcaller: It raises from the pallet.
[18:28] Murska: 'Hey there.'
[18:29] Shadowcaller: (Hehe… now thats bizzare.)
[18:30] Shadowcaller: You can feel some magic being used against you, but the mithril makes you resist it.
[18:31] Shadowcaller: "I don't know…" Arim says quietly "He says Karen would be safe in Derim."
[18:32] General Shrimp: "Perhaps, but it's hardly safe it involves taking huge risks and having to deal with incredibly powerful demons to get there, is it?"
[18:32] Shadowcaller: "…don't we have to deal with it either way?"
[18:33] General Shrimp: "One way could give us a powerful ally though…"
[18:34] Murska: He raises the sword and steps closer.
[18:35] Shadowcaller: The figure goes up from the pallet and then attacks you, slashing it's long claws against you. You may notice it have a black dimond in it's chest.
[18:36] Murska: Derek retreats from the slashes, parrying with his sword. 'Hmf.'
[18:39] Shadowcaller: The figure is very fast and have inhuman strength and reflexes. It moves across, the room , waiting to strike.
[18:39] Shadowcaller: *-,
[18:40] Shadowcaller: Arim sigh "Talk with Derek, I don't know."
[18:40] Murska: Luckily, Derek has spent most of his life fighting creatures with inhuman strength, speed and reflexes. He's quite used to it by now.
[18:41] Murska: How healed is his hand?
[18:41] Shadowcaller: The bone haven't meded yet, but it's a bit better.
[18:41] Murska: /Luna. Some archery support would be appreciated./
[18:42] Murska: He switches his sword to the left hand, holding it carefully to avoid hurting himself.
[18:42] Shadowcaller: /WHats going on?/
[18:42] Murska: /Something attacked me./
[18:42] Shadowcaller: He can see a blue flash behind him.
[18:43] Shadowcaller: The creature dances around him, jumping left and right to confuse him.
[18:44] Murska: He follows it with his sword tip.
[18:45] Shadowcaller: Luna enters the room, her eyes goes wide as she see the hideous figure, it cackles at her.
[18:47] Shadowcaller: The creature leaps backwards and then makes some geastures towards Luna.
[18:47] Murska: Derek steps between the two
[18:48] Shadowcaller: This appears to annoy the creature greatly, it leaps at him.
[18:49] Murska: He thrusts his sword at it and freezes it in place, turning sideways with the thrust like he was fencing with a rapier or something to hide his right arm.
[18:51] Shadowcaller: The thrust chips away a part of his body, getting right thought. The creature is now suspended in the air along with the sword which it tries to get off.
[18:52] Murska: He raises the crossbow in his right arm and shoots it in the throat.
[18:53] Shadowcaller: This chips away yet another piece of the figures body, just as Lunas arrowhead dose when she hit it in the head.
[18:54] Shadowcaller: The creature dosen't stop moving from that however, it gets off the sword, screeching loudly.
[18:55] Murska: He lunges at it while it's still off-balance and attempts to touch it (probably in the claws?) to freeze the black diamond in place.
[18:57] Shadowcaller: The creature manages to cut a wound in his arm as he freezes the black diamond in place, making the creature unable to move.
[18:58] Murska: He kicks the creature in the chest, but not directly at the diamond, with quite a lot of force in the hopes of ripping the diamond out.
[19:00] Shadowcaller: The creature is thrown backwards by his kick, the black diamond remains in the air however. The creature screams.
[19:00] Elly: ( BRUTALITY! /Mortal Kombat )
[19:01] Murska: (You know… that would be one nasty thing to do to someone's eyeball.)
[19:01] General Shrimp: Hector takes out the newspaper, "Hmm…d'you know there's an article in here saying that exploring old abandoned mansions can be very dangeorus…"
[19:01] General Shrimp: (:P)
[19:01] Shadowcaller: It gets up again, swaying slightly, Derek can feel a great pain where he was cut.
[19:02] Murska: /Shit, that was poisoned./
[19:02] Murska: He lets the diamond drop.
[19:03] Murska: Then he puts the crossbow away and picks up his sword.
[19:03] Elly: Wren steals the Funny Pages, and hides in ther corner.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: It falls down on the floor. The creature is moving towards him again, but now much slower and stiffer.
[19:03] General Shrimp: Hector runs over and pouts at her before taking the imaginary funny pages from the imaginary newspaper back. "My imaginary newspaper!"
[19:03] Shadowcaller: It gets hit by another of Luna's arrows, right in the eyeball.
[19:03] Murska: Boom, eyeballshot.
[19:04] Murska: He beheads it.
[19:04] Shadowcaller: The creature turns into a pile of dust as he slashes against it.
[19:04] Murska: He sheathes the sword and looks at his arm.
[19:05] Shadowcaller: It looks infected.
[19:05] Murska: He moves the healing thingy from his left hand to his right arm's wound.
[19:05] Shadowcaller: It heals the wound, but it still dosen't look that good.
[19:06] Murska: Well, nothing else he can do to it here.
[19:06] Shadowcaller: "Are you okay? What was that?"
[19:06] Murska: 'No idea.' He looks around in the room, paying more attention now that there isn't something trying to kill him.
[19:07] Shadowcaller: There is a table with a few scrolls on it. There is the pallet, he can something glimmer there.
[19:07] Murska: He heads to check out the glimmer first. Shiny.
[19:08] Shadowcaller: If he moves the pallet a bit, he can find a large pile of gold coins hidden underneath.
[19:08] Murska: Then let's say he does. :P
[19:08] Happy: (darn it! we want silver ones!
[19:09] Elly: ( Possessed Don't touch it!
[19:09] Elly: )
[19:09] General Shrimp: (MONEY! They're no longer broke!)
[19:09] Elly: (AKBAR! AKBAR IN THE PALLET. >.> )
[19:09] General Shrimp: *Whacks Elly with newspaper.* It's MONEY! Who cares if it's possessed?)
[19:09] Elly: (He's the demonhunter and the rest of us won't recognize what happened when it eats him? o.o )
[19:10] Shadowcaller: Including a silver wase, a doll, a bronze cross and the skeletal remains of some type of creature.
[19:11] General Shrimp: (TAKE IT ALL!!!)
[19:11] Shadowcaller: It's a skull.
[19:11] Murska: Let's leave the creepy decor
[19:11] Murska: What about the papers?
[19:12] Shadowcaller: The scrolls/papers? There are a great deal written on them, rituals and such. If he turns around, he can see Luna picking up the black diamond.
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Oh, the current page is for a spell called, quite openly 'Call Marduk'
[19:13] Murska: 'Hey Lu… don't touch random magical stuff!'
[19:14] Murska: (She's really into shiney, isn't she? :P)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: She lets go of the dimanod "…sorry, it seemed harmless." (And yes, she is…)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: "I mean I did touch it and nothing happend…"
[19:15] Murska: 'Here's something you can take.' He points at the pile of gold.
[19:15] General Shrimp: I'm going to sleep for a little while, later folks.
[19:15] Shadowcaller: "Ohh…" Her eyes widen in excitment. "Let me get a bag from the other room and we can take it all."
[19:15] Shadowcaller: (See you shrimp.)
[19:16] Happy: (gnight. sweet dreams)
[19:16] *** General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp has left the conversation.
[19:16] Elly: ( Nigh- )
[19:16] Murska: 'Go ahead.' He looks at the scrolls further for clues about the dagger material and the black diamond or anything else interesting.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: He will learn from the scrolls that the dimond is a very powerful focus for spellcasting. It makes humans able to cast certain magic rituals. He also find instructions for some type of immortality spell, the spell 'flesh ward', 'Dominate' and how to summon Marduk and other demons. There is also a few clues here how to enslave a demon.
[19:19] Shadowcaller: It mentions dragon stone, or rather, dragon bone.
[19:21] Murska: While Luna is fetching the bag Derek takes a small pouch from his stuff, empties it of the few coins it had(into his pocket) and puts the black diamond in it. Then he closes it tightly and hides it into his stuff.
[19:21] Murska: Then he takes the scrolls and puts them into his backpack.
[19:22] Murska: Now we need a wizard. :P
[19:22] Elly: ( =p )
[19:22] Shadowcaller: (Tehcnically, everyone is a wizard…)
[19:22] Murska: Well, someone who's studied that sort of stuff
[19:23] Murska: and can make sense of the scrolls better
[19:23] Shadowcaller: (Since all you need is the black dimond. The instructions are pretty clear after all.)
[19:23] Murska: Ah. Awesome, multiclassing now.
[19:23] Shadowcaller: (
)
[19:24] Shadowcaller: Luna returns adn start to fill the bags with gold and the other goods, as she is almost done she looks in the direction the black diamond where "You took it?"
[19:25] Murska: 'Yes.' Is Luna taking the skull? I take it it isn't, say, dragon bone? :P
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (She is taking the skull.)
[19:25] Shadowcaller: (And who knows what it is?)
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "What was it?"
[19:26] Murska: (Well, have Karen make some arrowheads out of it, freeze up a demon and shoot some practice rounds.)
[19:26] Murska: 'Some magical artifact.'
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "Ah, what could it do?"
[19:27] Murska: 'Nothing on it's own but it can be used for quite a lot it seems.'
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "…let's talk about it more once we are out of here."
[19:28] Murska: 'Agreed on getting out.' He smiles and walks to her. 'Oh, while you're at the task of gathering up all our loot…'
[19:28] Murska: He points at her. 'Told. You. So.'
[19:28] Wolfbane: (leaving for my first class of the semester in 10)
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "Hey! It was dangerous wasn't it?" (Okay, thats a very late class o.O)
[19:29] Wolfbane: (Its only at 2pm for me. >.>)
[19:29] Elly: ( *huggles Wolfie!* Have fun, when are you back? )
[19:29] Murska: He just laughs. 'Let's get going then.'
[19:29] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, whan are you back? >.>)
[19:30] Elly: ( *tugs Wolfie's tail* Hallos? >.> )
[19:30] Wolfbane: (about an hour afterwards, a little longer)
[19:30] Elly: ( Kewl. =3 )
[19:31] Wolfbane: (Around 5 your time at most Elly)
[19:31] Shadowcaller: "Let's…" Luna says with a smile, grinning like a fox over the loot. And you leave the basement, the house and then the grounds…)
[19:31] Wolfbane: (I think)
[19:31] Elly: ( Our time, silly. Is the same. =p )
[19:31] Wolfbane: (Oh, 315 is when it ends)
[19:32] Elly: ( O.o Oh. I am an hour ahead. You said it was 2ish and… Anyway. On with the game. )
[19:32] Shadowcaller: So you others see Luna and Derek return with a few bags…
[19:32] Murska: Derek checks his arm at some point
[19:32] Murska: I'm off to sleep
[19:33] Shadowcaller: (Night.)
[19:33] Happy: *hugs Murska*
[19:34] Shadowcaller: (So Elly, Happy and me… what can we do?)
[19:34] Murska: *hugs* yawns, bye
[19:34] Murska: *poof*
