Part 7

Randsford glances at Zeban.

Mohrgan calls, "Disir! We are here!"

Roelon points at Zeban.

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Perigourd strikes at him, violently deflecting Perigourd's assault!

Dergoatean says, speaking to Dayzed, "Okay, now tell me how I feel about that."

Lurrah hisses at Bakarus.

Vaemyr says, "It's done... but... I don't like this."

Tabubu stares upward.

Bakarus sneers.

Brilliant flashes of lightning surround you!

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Mohrgan strikes at him, violently deflecting Mohrgan's assault!

Lurrah says, speaking to Bakarus, "Betrayer."

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Dergoatean, "Good. Very good."

Sorlu gazes in awe at Bakarus.

Large hailstones pound the ground relentlessly.

Falvicar ponders.

Dayzed deeply says, "Anhilde will come to our aid."

The sky is full of billowing snowflakes.

Roelon deeply says, "It could be ...anythng."

A heated breeze whips through the area!

Dergoatean turns to Dayzed and cheers!

Gidion winces.


Zeban begins to chant in a strange, sibilant tongue.  You see power flooding through the body of the fallen berserker.  Blackness, pure and vile, connects the demilich to the sleeping body.

Violent winds rip through the area!

Sorlu says, speaking to Bakarus, "My friend...you betray me."

Bakarus chants a short but reverent orison, asking for death and eternal servitude to come to his enemies.

Unenthusiastically, Gidion wiggles his fingers lazily with his hands held out in front of himself as he prepares a spell...

Gidion gestures.

In a low tone, Gidion speaks an intricate incantation in an unknown language.

Violent winds rip through the area!

Vaemyr traces a sign that contorts in the air while he forcefully incants a dark invocation...

Vaemyr gestures at Zeban.

Hideous runes well up beneath Zeban's skin as Vaemyr starts to cast at him, shattering the spell into useless threads of coruscating mana that swiftly fade away.

You hear someone chuckling.

Gidion says, "Oh great,,,"

Lurrah exclaims, speaking to Zeban, "Stop!!"

Falvicar frowns.

Violent winds rip through the area!

Dergoatean asks, speaking to Dayzed, "How about the lich though?"

Gidion gulps.

Stormwinds whip around you, shrieking like a chorus of banshees!

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Lurrah strikes at him, violently deflecting Lurrah's assault!

Dayzed deeply says, "Feel bad about the lich."

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Roelon strikes at him, violently deflecting Roelon's assault!

Bakarus says, "Under His banner, or in His shambling horde."

Violent winds rip through the area!

A heated breeze whips through the area!

Roelon bellows a guttural series of oaths.

From nearby, you hear Anhilde yell, "This will not be!"

Large rocks swirl overhead!

Large hailstones pound the ground relentlessly.

Gespry nods.

Violent winds rip through the area!

A wave of power flows out of Roelon and toward Zeban, who is surrounded by a soft white light.

Dergoatean exclaims, "She's here!"

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Sorlu strikes at him, violently deflecting Sorlu's assault!

Roelon roars at Zeban!

Violent winds rip through the area!

Sorlu sneers.

Bakarus chants a short but reverent orison, asking for death and eternal servitude to come to his enemies.

Violent winds rip through the area!

Gidion says, "We...really need a healer..."

Large rocks swirl overhead!

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Perigourd strikes at him, violently deflecting Perigourd's assault!

Gidion sighs.

A voice exclaims, from behind Zeban, ""Oi, Giant Giant Spirit Thing! Come stop this madness!"

A wave of power flows out of Mohrgan towards towards a soporose gigas berserker.

Zeban suddenly turns and grabs Jiarine's wrist!

You notice Jiarine reach into Zeban's pockets.

Missoni agrees with Gidion.

Gidion gazes up into the heavens.

Large hailstones pound the ground relentlessly.

Tibs starts chortling.

Violent winds rip through the area!

The sky all around is white with falling snow.

Dayzed deeply exclaims, "Get 'im!"

Violent winds rip through the area!

>look bakarus You see Bakarus Klysus the Pilgrim. He appears to be a Human from Jantalar. He is average height. He appears to be very young. He has piercing black eyes and pale skin. He has shoulder length, wavy black hair. He has a square-jawed face, a classical nose and broad shoulders. The fingertips of one hand are twisted and black, with a texture like corpseflesh. His pupils slowly begin to constrict into thin vertical slits, returning to normal after a quick blink. He has a fractured and bleeding right leg, a fractured and bleeding left hand, deep lacerations across his chest, deep gashes and serious bleeding from his abdominal area, deep lacerations across his back, a bruised right eye, a swollen left eye, and minor bruises about the head. He has a scar across his neck, old battle scars on his right arm, old battle scars on his left arm, an old battle scar across his chest, an old battle scar across his back, a black-and-blue right eye, and a scar across his face. He is bleeding from the right leg, badly from the chest, and badly from the abdomen. A slowly rotating ring of sigils encircles each of his hands, scribed on the air in pale energy. He is holding an ebon dawn surita staff in his right hand. The leather of his duster writhes unnaturally about him, concealing his form.

Tentacles of crimson smoke enshroud Zeban's form as Mohrgan strikes at him, violently deflecting Mohrgan's assault!

Violent winds rip through the area!

Roelon grins at Jiarine.

Unenthusiastically, Gidion wiggles his fingers lazily with his hands held out in front of himself as he prepares a spell... Gidion gestures at Zeban. Hideous runes well up beneath Zeban's skin as Gidion starts to cast at him, shattering the spell into useless threads of coruscating mana that swiftly fade away.

Dayzed deeply says, "Send the lich back to rest with the rest of the council."

Violent winds rip through the area!

Missoni dryly says, "I do not suppose anyone has brostheras potion."

Gusting winds fling shards of cutting ice and pounding hail at you as they sweep through the area with brutal force!

One by one, glowing golden disir plummet down from the skies, taking Zeban by the limbs.  He lets out a horrific scream as they wrench the tablets from his hands.  More disir, faces resolute and aglow with holy light, raise him into the sky!

Violent winds rip through the area!

Lurrah lets out a loud snarling growl and goes berserk!

Large rocks swirl overhead!

Lurrah spins around looking for something to attack!

Lurrah thunders out an ear-splitting caterwaul and runs down after a quivering sanguine ooze!

You hear someone laugh.

Missoni tilts her head up.

Violent winds rip through the area!

Bakarus sneers.

Roelon deeply exclaims, "Rip him apart!"

Large hailstones pound the ground relentlessly.

You hear Zeban yell, "No! The body... is..."

Large rocks swirl overhead!

Roelon stamps his feet.

Dayzed lets out a cheer! The voice of Sorlu says, "Ruined."

Large rocks swirl overhead!

Falvicar nods firmly.

Brilliant flashes of lightning surround you!

Brilliant flashes of lightning surround you!

Randsford glances at Sorlu.

Talliver groans.

A heated breeze whips through the area!

You come out of hiding. You stand back up. Roundtime: 8 sec.

Vaemyr glances at Sorlu.

Vaemyr glances at Talliver.

Perigourd comes out of hiding.

Perigourd pulls Talliver to his feet.

Perigourd asks, speaking to Talliver, "Are you alright?"

The storm subsides and the air is calm again.

Roelon asks, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Are...ye alright Mayor?"

Jiarine glances up.

Missoni looks at Talliver with concern.

Perigourd offers Talliver a bunch of pothinir grass.

Gespry begins to do his best to bandage Talliver's wounded chest.

A heavy snow falls, sculpting everything into round white curves.

Gidion says, speaking to Ragz, "Hate to say yer a mess but...."

Tabubu looks thoughtfully at Bakarus.

Bakarus says, "Fools."

A pained expression crosses Gidion's face.

Tibs screams!

Mohrgan breathlessly says, "The disir..they have him."

Tabubu looks thoughtfully at Bakarus.

Jiarine whispers aloud, "Fight it."

Bakarus laughs!

Talliver says, "I can't even hold it."

Gespry melodically says, "Yer a hard halfliung to keep tending."

Roelon glances at Bakarus.

Randsford sighs.

Missoni frowns.

Roelon deeply asks, "Fools?"

Roelon stands up.

With narrowed eyes, Bakarus points his dawn surita staff at Roelon. Ribbons of pale energy unwind from the sigils gleaming within its surface and coil about him before snapping back to their origin.

Randsford glances at Roelon.

Roelon grins bravely, ignoring his obvious pain.

Randsford walks toward Roelon.

>stand You stand back up. Roundtime: 9 sec.

You hear someone chanting.

Roelon slowly empties his lungs . Ragz says, "Heyo."

Roelon tilts his head down.

Ragz stands up.

Randsford asks, speaking to Roelon, "That you?"

Gidion starts chortling.

Roelon nods at Randsford.

Roelon deeply says, "Aye..."

Ragz nods appreciatively.

A flight of glowing golden figures rises aloft, carrying a small, struggling figure between them.  His screams rise to a fever pitch as the disir tear him limb from limb, unsmiling faces luminously bright despite their bloody work.

Randsford gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Randsford says, "He is still here."

Randsford says, "All we did was release him."

Talliver gazes up into the heavens.

Roelon deeply says, "However...this one who claims us fools..."

Missoni nods gratefully at Gidion.

Roelon points at Bakarus.

Mohrgan tilts his head up.

Gidion nods.

Gidion pants.

Bakarus sneers at Roelon.

Gespry suddenly pauses, a look of consternation crossing his features as he listens intently.

Dayzed deeply says, "Someone needs to deal with Bakarus."

You frown at Bakarus.

You sigh at Bakarus.

Roelon deeply says, "Someone to protect Icemule...and its people."

  • Roelon drops dead at your feet!

The swirling breeze around Roelon finally settles. The powerful look leaves Roelon. Roelon seems slightly different. The misty halo fades from Roelon. The light blue glow leaves Roelon. Roelon seems hesitant. Roelon's movements no longer appear to be influenced by a divine power as the spiritual force fades from around his arms. Roelon becomes unbalanced for a second, then recovers. Roelon appears to lose some internal strength. Roelon loses a thorny barrier. Roelon seems to lose some dexterity. Roelon is no longer moving so silently. Roelon seems to lose an aura of confidence. Roelon seems to lose some internal strength. Roelon looks less aware of the surroundings. The air about Roelon stops shimmering. Roelon returns to normal color. The dull golden nimbus fades from around Roelon. Roelon appears less powerful. The very powerful look leaves Roelon. The white light leaves Roelon. The deep blue glow leaves Roelon. Missoni takes a bite of her basal moss. Missoni's chest looks better.

* Roelon just got iced in the Hinterwilds!
Talliver glances at Dayzed.

You see a wave of energy emanate from Perigourd toward Roelon. It coalesces around his body and then seeps in, leaving a glow around the body.

Rolfard raspily says, "Um."

Ralkean blinks.

Gidion winces.

Rolfard raspily says, "Ok that's enough."

Talliver says, "An Icemule Trace problem."

Bakarus says, "Do not question my power."

Motes of silvery light sparkle across Rolfard's skin, twinkling like

Bakarus hauls off and slaps Talliver up'side the head!

Talliver says, "For now..."

Vaemyr glances over at the body of Roelon, sizes up the mess and winces. You think you hear him mutter something beneath his breath that sounds like, "What a pity!"

Rolfard raspily asks, "Someone making a fire?"

Randsford glances at Bakarus.

Ralkean chuckles.

The ghostly voice of Roelon deeply says, "He will be delt with."

Tabubu cocks her head.

Perigourd asks, speaking to Talliver, "A withdrawl?"

Roblar smiles.

Randsford says, speaking to Bakarus, "Fight..."

Bakarus says, "Mayor."

Bakarus laughs!

Missoni frowns.

Perigourd glances at Bakarus.

Ralkean laughs!

You frown.

Randsford groans.

Out of the corner of your eye, you see the sleeping berserker twitch.
One eye flicks open for a moment, but then it closes, and Zerroth's sleep continues.

Bakarus says, "So easily misled."

Mohrgan glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Mohrgan frowns.

Missoni glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Perigourd glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Randsford gestures at Roelon.

Gidion nods.

A knobby layer of bark swiftly forms on Roelon.

The voice of Sorlu asks, "Who was it that was misled, Bakarus?"

Desorceri nods.

Gidion chuckles.

Rolfard acquires a look of grim determination.

Roblar ponders.

Bakarus says, "We were betrayed."

Roblar deeply says, "Guud, no group."

Roblar chuckles. Vaemyr says, "The barrier is down... but I think we destroyed one of the barriers sealing Zerroth."

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Bakarus, "We, he says."

The voice of Sorlu asks, "We?"

Lurrah says, speaking to Bakarus, "Someone was."

Missoni looks rather confused.

You hear someone chuckling.

Mohrgan angrily murmurs, "We should cut Zerroth into bits and spread them from one end of the worlds to the other."

Talliver says, speaking flatly to Bakarus, "Oh, were we."

Sorlu looks over at Bakarus and shakes his head.

Bakarus smiles at Talliver.

Sorlu says, speaking to Bakarus, "You."

Bakarus says, "Eternal Light, Mayor."

Sorlu takes a few steps back.

Sorlu strides over to stand before Lurrah.

Bakarus hisses with narrowed eyes before returning a forced smile.

Lurrah hugs Sorlu, who wraps her in a warm embrace.

Roelon stands up.

Desorceri asks, "What happened?"

Sorlu hugs Lurrah, who wraps him in a warm embrace.

Roblar exclaims, speaking deeply to Mohrgan, "Ah didn't know you were Mullarosian!"

Vaemyr just went down.

A crackling jolt of energy traces a ring of pure black essence mid-air. The energy dissipates with a clap of sparks, but the undulating ring of essence lingers, hovering mere inches above the ground. The ring of essence pulses momentarily. A crackling jolt of energy slowly consumes the ring of essence, tracing its entire length until vanishing in a clap of sparks.

Roblar appears to be trying hard not to grin.

Dergoatean says, speaking to Mohrgan, "Even bits of Zerroth are probably dangerous, though. And having them everywhere is just more points of failure. Tough call."

Sorlu says, speaking to Lurrah, "My game worked..."

Perigourd grumbles.

Roblar deeply says, "Sounds like torture.."

Sorlu flashes a quick grin at Lurrah.

Ycelacie curiously asks, "Are we done fighting?"

Lurrah asks, speaking concernedly to Sorlu, "Are you okay? It did?"

Sorlu nods at Lurrah.

Lurrah glances at Bakarus.

Mohrgan says, speaking to Roblar, "I'm not sure it counts as torture if he's already dead."

Sorlu says, "Indeed."

Roblar ponders.

Bakarus asks, speaking to Lurrah, "We can still be friends, right?"

Falvicar ponders.

Bakarus smiles at Lurrah.

Roblar deeply says, "Ah question for da great tinkersof our age."

Bits of bloody mist drift down around you.  A moment later, a rotten halfling hand falls to the ground and splatters on the stones.

Randsford gazes heavenward.

Talliver gazes heavenward.

Gidion says, "Euw."

Sorlu grins at Bakarus.

Dayzed deeply says, "Gross."

Tabubu nods in agreement.

Roblar smiles.

Lurrah says, speaking to Bakarus, "We never were."

Dergoatean says, "ERWWWWWW."

Mohrgan says, speaking to Dergoatean, "Point taken, though."

Sorlu tilts his head down.

Missoni tilts her head down.

Falvicar gazes in amusement at his surroundings.

Ralkean belches juicily, wiping the gastric secretions from his chin.

Sorlu laughs softly, trying to hide his amusement.

Talliver says, "They seem to be having a good time with their revenge."

Roblar stamps his feet.

Lurrah smirks.

Rolfard raspily says, "This is just narsty."

Roelon deeply says, "They did what we could nae."

Dendum exclaims, "Thought landing had troubles with adventurers...Icemule has gone crazy!"

Lurrah says, speaking to Bakarus, "Sorlu never stopped warning that you would betray everyone."

Dayzed deeply says, "I've been calling out this traitor for months now."

Roelon deeply says, "As much as that pains me. Ah am grateful fir what they are doin'."

Sorlu grins slowly.

Sorlu nods at Roelon.

Falvicar whispers, "I need to restock my Lover."

Falvicar chuckles to himself.

The sound of great wings dawns over you as the surroundings brighten precipitously.  Golden radiance streaks down from above, impacting the ground with great force.  The streak of blinding luminescence resolves into the form of Anhilde, her great wings unfurled.  They slowly relax, folding against her back, as she surveys the surroundings.

You quietly whisper to Falvicar, "You and me both."

Sorlu says, speaking to Roelon, "It has been some time in the making."

Mohrgan turns to face Anhilde.

Gidion waves to Anhilde.

Roelon nods at Sorlu.

Missoni lets out a sigh of relief for Anhilde.

Gidion says, speaking to Anhilde, "Welcome back."

Bakarus says, speaking to Roelon, "You are valuable. We will talk when this mess is over."

Perigourd nods appreciatively at Anhilde.

Missoni says, "Finally, someone who makes sense."

Dayzed turns to Anhilde and cheers!

Dergoatean turns to Anhilde and cheers!

Bakarus smiles at Roelon.

Mohrgan says, speaking respectfully to Anhilde, "Disir...welcome."

Lurrah says, speaking disappointedly to Bakarus, "And I couldn't even use your worthless Arkati to bring him back."

Randsford sighs.

Aeith gazes in awe at Anhilde.

Roelon chuckles.

Bakarus laughs!

Dergoatean says, speaking to Anhilde, "I'm impressed."

Randsford glances at Bakarus.

Gespry carefully places a bundle of wood on the floor.

Roelon deeply says, "Mah value is to the town."

Lurrah glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Gespry carefully places a handful of tinder on the floor.

Rolfard raspily says, "Thanks whomever warmed this place up."

Ycelacie looks rather confused.

Dergoatean agrees with Rolfard.

Roelon asks, speaking deeply to Bakarus, "Mah honor is with the town. Where was yirs?"

Gidion pants.

Roblar deeply exclaims, "And he told my cryptic things!"

Gidion nods.

Roblar points at Bakarus.

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

Bakarus says, speaking to Randsford, "I consider you a friend as well, let us talk when this is over."

Roblar deeply says, "Thought he was a seer or somethin.."

Lurrah whispers something to Sorlu.

Roblar smiles quietly to himself.

Randsford says, speaking to Roelon, "He is in there somewhere...."

Missoni furrows her brow.

Roelon deeply says, "Power is fleeting."

Roelon sighs.

Randsford says, speaking to Roelon, "He is fighting believe me."

Sorlu says, speaking to Lurrah, "I had hoped to give the Tablet to another, but I suppose the price was well worth it still."

Roelon touches Randsford.

Roelon deeply says, "Ah know what power does...."

Randsford says, speaking to Roelon, "Do not lose faith my friend or we have lost."

Anhilde says, "It is done."

Lurrah nods at Sorlu.

Mohrgan nods once at Anhilde.

Tabubu quietly says, "Power is never fleeting."

Dergoatean says, speaking to Anhilde, "Sure looks like it."

Sorlu says, speaking to Lurrah, "Zeban had his moment of pleasure ripped from him."

Roelon says, speaking deeply to Randsford, "But we hae laws..."

Sorlu grins at Lurrah.

(Dergoatean glances at the smooshed up halfling hand.)

Ralkean blinks.

Missoni asks, speaking to Anhilde, "And what of Zerroth?"

Lurrah says, speaking disappointedly to a soporose gigas berserker, "Yes, I suppose so."

Sorlu says, speaking to Lurrah, "Let that be the price of all who cross Ivas."

Sorlu nods at Lurrah.

Perigourd leans on his sword.

Lurrah nods at Sorlu.

Gespry melodically says, "Paladin raise are temp."

Anhilde glances down at the tablets she carries in her arms.

Mohrgan asks, speaking uncertainly to Anhilde, "That one, the Berserker...he moved. Are we still ind anger from him?"

Gespry nods at Anhilde.

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "He appears to be in his state of rest."

Roelon nods at Anhilde.

Mohrgan glances between Anhilde and a soporose gigas berserker.

Sorlu turns to face Anhilde.

Dendum asks, speaking to Anhilde, ""What happens to the tablets now?"

Missoni says, speaking to Perigourd, "Appearances..."

Gespry turns an inquisitive ear toward Anhilde.

Roelon says, speaking deeply to Anhilde, "They are yir peoples once again."

Perigourd nods in agreement at Missoni.

Bakarus smiles at Missoni.

Missoni bites her lip.

Anhilde says, speaking to Dendum, "That remains to be seen."

Perigourd surreptitiously glances at Bakarus.

You slide a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds off your finger.

Lurrah says, speaking to Sorlu, "You have indeed honored the vow you have made, husband."

Randsford nods slowly at Roelon.

Dendum nods at Anhilde.

Keening wind blows outside, but you are sheltered from the worst of its brutal assault.

Bakarus says, speaking to Perigourd, "You have helped greatly. I thank you."

You drop a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds.

Roelon nods at Sorlu.

You stamp your way around a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds!

Roelon gives Sorlu a firm handshake.

(Sorlu's eyes turn Anhilde, and the Tablet he once carried. A small twich tugs at the corner of his eye, and he bites down on his lip.)

Falvicar nods firmly.

Anhilde says, speaking to Sorlu, "The Tablet of Life is still bound to you.  That is a bond that cannot be severed by force."

Perigourd turns to face Bakarus.

Falvicar hugs you, and you wrap him in a warm embrace.

Roelon deeply says, "Ye did what many could nae even try ah believe."

Roelon nods at Sorlu.

Sorrenn gulps.

Anhilde asks, speaking softly to Sorlu, "So I must ask you this.  Do you willingly relinquish it?"

Gidion says, speaking to Sorlu, "Some people have all the luck."

Rolfard raspily says, "Yer wyrdling is strange."

Gespry nods at Sorlu.

Tibs leans on his staff.

Sorlu bites his lip.

Perigourd shakes his head.

Mohrgan glances meaningfully at Sorlu.

Perigourd grunts.

Randsford squints at Sorlu.

Perigourd turns to face Missoni.

Sorlu glances at Lurrah.

Lurrah nods slowly at Sorlu.

Sorlu slowly empties his lungs.

Lurrah says, speaking softly to Sorlu, "You can do it."

Desorceri hoots at Sorrenn.

Zegres leans on his runestaff.

Lurrah rests a gentle hand on Sorlu's arm.

You quietly whisper to Falvicar, "With his death the spell that kept it on my ring was broken and I was able to remove it..

Randsford stamps his feet.

Sorlu asks, speaking to Anhilde, "I gave my word. And what is a Nalfein who does not keep his word?"

Randsford shakes his head.

Sorlu nods at Anhilde.

Tibs scrubs vigorously at his black leathers.

You wink at Falvicar.

Anhilde glances at Talliver.


Golden light surrounds Talliver, washing away his injuries.

Lurrah says, speaking to Sorlu, "Plus, I am sick of the fungus."

Jiarine asks, "A Nalfein?"

Alastir says, speaking to Sorlu, "A dwarf."

Gespry nods.

Anhilde turns to face Sorlu.

Dendum starts chortling.

Falvicar nods understandingly to you.

Anhilde says, "So be it."

Falvicar smiles.

Gespry nods approvingly at Sorlu.

Dayzed turns to Sorlu and cheers!

Lurrah smiles at Sorlu.

Mohrgan nods respectfully at Sorlu.

Sorlu begins to twitch.

Anhilde says, speaking to Sorlu, "You have our gratitude, Sorlu.  I hope that you do not come to dwell among us soon."

Perigourd nods at Missoni.

Missoni agrees with Perigourd.

Gidion ponders.

Gespry nods at Yaba.

Sorlu says, speaking to Anhilde, "That is not part of any game I have planned."

Sorlu grins.

You snuggle against Falvicar, who cradles an arm around you.

Gespry melodically says, "Alot of work to be had here."

Sorlu bows to Anhilde.

Yaba stands up.

Missoni nods approvingly at Sorlu.

Falvicar snuggles up against you, and you cradle an arm around him in response.

Lurrah asks, speaking to Anhilde, "I don't suppose so you could revive this one who was so abused in his afterlife?"

Lurrah glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Anhilde glances at Lurrah.

Bakarus twists his head slightly, cracking his neck. He looks relieved.

Bakarus says, "Ahh."

Sorlu glances at Lurrah.

Bakarus says, "Like new."

Alastir picks up a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds.

Alastir ponders.

Tabubu taps Yaba lightly on his shoulder.

Lurrah sheepishly says, "I have to ask."

Anhilde says, speaking to a monstrous figure, "He was among the best of us, once."

Mohrgan frowns.

Sorlu cocks his head at Anhilde.

Bakarus asks, "So, when is the next council meeting?"

You say, speaking quietly to Bakarus, "You had a lot of us fooled."

Roelon gazes with interest at a soporose gigas berserker.

Ycelacie evenly shouts, "Can someone please explain to me why everyone was fighting moments ago?"

Bakarus leans on Talliver.

Alastir whispers, "Did you mean to drop this."

Ycelacie glances at Bakarus.

Mohrgan mentions, speaking to Anhilde, "And the worst."

Merciless wind shrieks outside like a banshee, but it cannot reach you here.

Dendum says, speaking to Ycelacie, ""Traitors."

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "I hope you deal with that one quickly."

Ycelacie asks, "Who?"

Sorlu smirks at Bakarus.

Bakarus glances at Dayzed.

Talliver says, speaking to Bakarus, "Remove your hand or I will do it for you."

Dendum points at Bakarus.

Ycelacie points at Bakarus.

You nod.

Bakarus says, "Careful friend."

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Or I may."

Randsford sighs.

Perigourd says, "I expect there are many volunteers."

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

Bakarus hisses with narrowed eyes before returning a forced smile.

Roelon nods at Dayzed.

Sorlu grins at Perigourd.

You quietly whisper to Alastir, "I did."

Bakarus says, "Water under the bridge."

Alastir drops a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds.

Lurrah says, speaking to Anhilde, "And could be again. Just because he follows the Warrior God doesn't mean he has no good in him still."

Randsford says, speaking to Bakarus, "The other you will not win, you had your chance."

A semblance of warmth returns to your body as the bitter cold of the Hinterwilds retreats.

. The black ora prayerbeads around Bakarus's neck is momentarily engulfed in a shroud of darkness!

Anhilde says, "What was done to Zerroth was done to keep the world safe."

Randsford looks over at Bakarus and shakes his head.

Dayzed nods at Anhilde.

Missoni agrees with Anhilde.

Gespry nods at Anhilde.

Bakarus says, speaking to Randsford, "I will still take you up on your offer of being my bodyguard."

Anhilde says, speaking to Lurrah, "Because of what you outsiders have done, though..."

Mohrgan nods.

Lurrah says, speaking to Anhilde, "Both things can co-exist despite the conflict."

Sorlu asks, speaking to Anhilde, "What will become of the Tablets now that both are again together?"

Tabubu quietly says, "Not so safe to Zerroth."

Randsford looks over at Bakarus and shakes his head.

Dergoatean says, "That sounds ominous."

Anhilde says, "I will offer him a chance."

Mohrgan frowns.

Dayzed asks, speaking deeply to Anhilde, "Are you sure that is wise?"

Dergoatean says, "Oh. Phew."

Missoni grits her teeth.

Randsford says, speaking to Bakarus, "You already have one in you, just release your prisoner."

Lurrah nods at Anhilde.

Sorlu nods at Lurrah.

Mohrgan grips his rolaren-hafted waraxe a little tighter.

Roelon whispers something to Dayzed.

Zhagen says, "Yeah, that doesn't sound wise."

Bakarus smiles at Randsford.

Dayzed nods at Roelon.

Anhilde rests her hand on the massive figure's forehead.  A pulse of golden light passes through the sleeping gigas's figure, almost blinding to look upon.  The body stirs, then falls slack once more against the stone.

Missoni asks, speaking warily to Anhilde, "A chance?"

Randsford says, speaking to Bakarus, "Someone much more powerful."

Bakarus grins.

Mohrgan flinches.

Dayzed gasps.

Gidion winces.

Lurrah says, speaking to Anhilde, "It is the way of balance."

Bakarus says, "Oh yes."

Aeith squints.

Gespry nods slowly.

Anhilde says, "I have done what I can."

Missoni glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Bakarus says, "I am possessed."

Sorrenn glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Sorrenn gulps.

Mohrgan quickly asks, "Wh...what was that?"

Anhilde says, "...the rest will be up to him."

Missoni vigorously shakes her head.

Gespry melodically says, "Sleep of the ages."

You gaze in awe at Anhilde.

Sorlu grins at Bakarus.

Jiarine says, "Release one evil to re-awaken another. Brilliant."

Dayzed nods slowly.

You quietly say, "Amazing."

Anhilde turns around.

Sorlu gazes in amusement at Bakarus.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Jiarine, "What could go wrong."

Gidion reaches out and pats a soporose gigas berserker.

Falvicar smirks.

Falvicar clenches his jaw.

Perigourd grunts.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Anhilde, "Thank you for your aid."

Bakarus says, "So many actors here. So many played a part."

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

Talliver says, speaking to Anhilde, "I fought with the forces of Ta'Illistim against Zerroth.  You don't want him waking up."

Bakarus says, "So many willing to talk and gossip."

Missoni pleads, speaking to Anhilde, "Undo it and put him back to sleep forever."

Roelon limps over to Anhilde.

Roelon bows to Anhilde.

Anhilde says, speaking calmly to Talliver, "What will be, will be."

Bakarus boredly says, "So predictable."

Perigourd says, speaking to a monstrous figure, "Keep sleeping."

Roelon deeply says, "Ah debt that cannae be repayed."

Jiarine asks, speaking to Bakarus, "Too many to believe the lies, hm?"

Anhilde says, "I do not hold the scales of life and death."

Bakarus yawns.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "I think these decisions be out of our hands, mayor."

You sigh at Bakarus.

Falvicar quietly says, "I dont like this..."

Roblar looks thoughtfully at Talliver.

Talliver nods slowly at Dayzed.

Bakarus whispers, "I think I am being controlled."

Lurrah says, speaking to Bakarus, "Predictable."

Bakarus says, speaking to you, "I'd still like to come to the wedding."

Talliver says, "I think... it might be best for me to return to Icemule Trace."

Lurrah frowns.

Mohrgan quietly says, "I recall how difficult it was to put him down last time, and I'd not relish doing it again."

You quietly whisper to Bakarus, "Are you?"

Dayzed asks, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Indeed - perhaps with Bakarus in shackles?"

Gespry nods understandingly at Talliver.

Talliver says, "But first, what about Zeban?  That was just a body, and he has worn many."

Bakarus winks at you.

Pushing his mirror-finish glasses with a single index finger, Ragz slides them back up his nose.

Sorlu raises an eyebrow in Talliver's direction.

You hang your head.

Falvicar nods at Mohrgan.

Missoni frowns.

Jiarine glances up.

You quietly whisper to Bakarus, "I believed in you."

You place a hand over your heart.

Roelon deeply says, "We thought him gone once before."

Sorlu asks, speaking to Anhilde, "Yes...are you able to tap whatever essence he is made of at this point?"

Roelon snorts!

Bakarus leans on you, giving you a companionable grin.

Tibs leans back.

Sorlu corrects, "Trap."

Bakarus says, speaking to you, "You can still believe in me."

Lurrah nods slowly.

Anhilde says, "For now, he is but a shadow of soul, torn apart by hands that lie in this world and the next."

Sorlu nods.

Gidion sighs.

Gidion says, speaking to Anhilde, "I know how that is..."

Gidion hangs his head.

Gespry melodically says, "May he come back only as a pist off gnat."

Anhilde says, "But if he should some day return, you will have the aid of the disir.  I swear that, for what you have done for us."

(Opalina wipes a tear from under her eye.)

Jiarine says, "How sad. He and I never had a chance to have a real conversation."

Bakarus takes a deep breath.

Sorlu nods at Anhilde.

Missoni breathes in slightly.

Roelon whispers, "Remember. We are Councilors of Icemule, laws of the town. and People to protect. If he can be redeemed, it will be by the laws we swore to uphold.."

Roelon nods to you.

Missoni nods gratefully at Anhilde.

You reach over and gently rest your hand on Falvicar's arm. Bakarus says, speaking to you, "Its hard, I know. You spread so many lies."

Bakarus shakes his head.

Anhilde says, "The damage he has done is great.  Angargreft is perverted; cursed."

Bakarus says, "Pity."

Aeith frowns.

Dayzed asks, speaking deeply to Anhilde, "Is there anything that can be done?"

Falvicar ponders.

Tabubu quietly says, "So are half the people that walk the lands."

Anhilde says, speaking to Dayzed, "I would not know where to start."

Lurrah whispers something to Bakarus.

Sorlu says, speaking to Anhilde, "Then we are allies against that darkness. It is good that we have one another."

Missoni asks, speaking to Anhilde, "Can anything restore it?"

Lurrah shakes her head, clucking her tongue.

Aeith says, "Surely there is a way to cleanse what has been uncleansed."

Anhilde nods at Sorlu.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Anhilde, "Well, if you do find a starting point, we will be here too aid you."

Bakarus whispers something to Lurrah.

You quietly say, "I will stand trial for my part if I must. Bakarus...I believed you to be innocent. I fought for you innocence.. a..."

Anhilde says, speaking to Missoni, "It is but stone."

Sorlu smiles at you.

Randsford whispers something to Roelon.

Missoni nods understandingly at Anhilde.

Anhilde smiles a sad, beautiful smile.

Sorlu says, speaking to you, "You played your part perfectly, do not fret."

Sorlu nods to you.

Lurrah smiles.

A sudden breeze coils around Sorrenn before dying away.

Anhilde says, "The Tablets must be placed back into the River of Color, along with all other memories of times long past."

Gespry nods approvingly at Anhilde.

Dendum gazes fondly at Anhilde.

Anhilde quietly says, "I go, but my thanks remain."

Jiarine picks up a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds.

Ycelacie blinks.

Nodyre praises Anhilde.

Jiarine carefully inspects her silvery glaes band.

Ashraam turns to Anhilde and cheers!

You bow to Anhilde.

Perigourd turns toward Anhilde and renders a sharp salute with his kelyn bastard sword.

Lurrah shrugs.

Sorlu bows to Anhilde.

Gespry says, speaking melodically to Anhilde, "And may they stay there till the end of eternity, un-disturbed."

Anhilde throws her head back and lifts her eyes skyward.  They seem to quicken from within with motes of golden light, which engulf her body in a swirling storm of radiance.  Wings, blinding but resplendent to look upon, unfurl from her back as she tenses her legs and leaps, turning into a blur of luminous beauty as she streaks away.

Jiarine put a braided silvery glaes wedding band set with blue diamonds in her silver-grey fox wrap.

Desorceri places the tips of his fingers to the edges of his mask, then twirls them down as he dips into a fanciful bow.

Sorlu smiles quietly to himself.

Dayzed deeply says, "Our thanks to you."

Roelon nods at Gespry.

Talliver gazes heavenward.

Lurrah tilts her head up.

Missoni tilts her head up.

Mohrgan tilts his head up.

Falvicar whispers, "I gave him a chance, but I wasn't buying the vision since he couldn't give me answers to prove who it was that gave said vision. Alas.. he does have an invitation to our wedding."

Alastir says, "Well, that was an adventure."

Roelon deeply says, "Ah hope to nae see those things ever again..."

Mohrgan calls, "Farewell!"

Aeith gazes heavenward.

Gidion says, "So many herbs."

Dendum scratches at his beard.

Falvicar nods to you.

Gidion pants.

Lurrah says, speaking to Sorlu, "I am proud of you."

Falvicar quietly says, "Fare thee well."

You gaze heavenward.

Bakarus says, "All is well that ends well."

Lurrah smiles.

Talliver says, "One I'm happy to see the end of."

Bakarus smiles.

Roelon nods at Talliver.

You quietly exclaim, "She is still very beautiful!"

Sorlu smiles at Lurrah.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Sorlu, "You are a true hero of Icemule."

Roelon agrees with you.

Sorlu bows to Dayzed.

Ycelacie pokes Gespry in the ribs.

Bakarus nods at Sorlu.

Bakarus applauds Sorlu.

Lurrah says, speaking to Sorlu, "I don't know if I could have handed it over considering."

Perigourd leans on his sword.

Sorlu winks at Bakarus.

Talliver says, speaking to Sorlu, "You are."

Ycelacie rolls her eyes.

Talliver says, speaking to Bakarus, "You, however..."

Roelon bows to Sorlu.

Bakarus smiles at Talliver.

Bakarus says, "Yes yes."

Sorlu bows to Roelon.

Bakarus waves his hand in a dismissive gesture.

Missoni glances between Sorlu and Bakarus.

Talliver says, speaking to Bakarus, "I will leave you to the judgment of the Town Council, Bakarus."

Dergoatean says, "I wonder if we'll ever see her again."

Dayzed turns to Talliver and cheers!

Dergoatean says, "Nice lady."

Sorlu says, "All I ask in return...is an arm, if one is available."

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

Sorlu chuckles to himself.

You hug Roelon, and he wraps you in a warm embrace in return.

Raythiel smiles.

Desorceri hums a seemingly random tune.

Roelon shakes his head.

Raythiel asks, "Miss anything?"

Raythiel whistles tunelessly to himself.

Lurrah grins at Sorlu.

Roelon begins chuckling at Sorlu!

Bakarus says, speaking to Raythiel, "Not a thing."

Ragz shakes his head at Raythiel and clucks his tongue.

Jiarine lightly says, "It looks like an empty seat will soon be open."

Falvicar nods once.

Talliver says, "I doubt we even have laws to cover your crimes."

(Ycelacie gives Gespry a look.)

Dayzed exclaims, speaking deeply to Sorlu, "In due time!"

Desorceri asks, speaking to Raythiel, "Same people different story?"

Ycelacie cocks her head.

Falvicar says, speaking quietly to Talliver, "That can change."

You quietly whisper to Roelon, "I am just so distraught.."

Raythiel chuckles.

Desorceri laughs at himself!

Sorlu says, "Well, we did hold an election for a judge not long ago."

Roelon says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Seems we mae hae to agree upon those now."

Gidion laughs!

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Banishment sounds appropriate."

Gespry nods at Sorlu.

Roelon deeply says, "And hope we never hae to use those laws again."

Bakarus says, "I might have to pay 10 silver to enter town now."

Bakarus frowns.

Bakarus says, "Ill fight it."

Gidion groans.

Gidion nods.

Lurrah makes a purring sound.

Sorlu grins at Lurrah.

Roblar deeply says, "Not anymore."

Sorlu tickles Lurrah into laughing.

Lurrah winks at Sorlu.

Gespry melodically says, "Nope."

Nindon smiles.

Roblar deeply says, "But can be banned."

Roblar chuckles.

Desorceri bows to Lurrah.

Roelon grins slowly.

Mohrgan nods.

Falvicar quietly says, "Landing did that to the traitors."

Roelon nods at Roblar.

Lurrah nods at Desorceri.

Roblar deeply says, "Hung."

Falvicar grins at Roblar.

Roblar deeply says, "Tar and feathered."

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Roblar, "Hanged."

Talliver glances at a soporose gigas berserker.

Roblar whistles tunelessly to himself.

Lurrah says, "Thank you for your direction."

Roelon deeply says, "Nae...."

Roblar glances at Talliver.

Dayzed winks at Roblar.

Roelon removes a lacy pink kilt from in his tartan hip-satchel.

Roelon nods at Roblar.

Randsford shakes his head.

Roblar deeply exclaims, "Options!"

Tweaked says, speaking squeakily to Roblar, "They calls that banishment me thinks."

Tweaked ponders.

Roelon deeply says, "This is far better."

Sorlu says, "My apologies, friends...I was not at liberty to openly discuss all that was going on."

Roelon put a lacy pink kilt in his tartan hip-satchel.

Desorceri begins chuckling at Roblar!

Tabubu quietly says, "I will take him to our dungeon in the Tower if it makes you all happy."

Falvicar begins chuckling at Roelon!

Roblar deeply says, "Same, exile."

Roelon deeply says, "Tar and this thing."

Roblar nods at Tweaked.

Talliver says, speaking to a soporose gigas berserker, "By all things good, if you do receive a second chance... I hope you use it better than your last one, you ugly bastard."

Bakarus says, speaking to Tabubu, "You wouldn't dare."

Dayzed scowls at a soporose gigas berserker.

Talliver slowly empties his lungs.

Missoni nods firmly at Talliver.

Sorlu begins chuckling at Talliver!

Mohrgan nods once at Talliver.

Roelon gazes with interest at a soporose gigas berserker.

You laugh softly, trying to hide your amusement.

Roelon smirks.

You agree with Talliver.

Falvicar nods in agreement.

Lurrah begins chuckling at Talliver!

Perigourd says, speaking to Talliver, "Unless he has given up his god, it is unlikely."

Mohrgan echoes, "Hear, hear."

Dergoatean smirks at Talliver.

Tabubu tilts her head in Bakarus's general direction, the folds of her hood obscuring her expression from view.

Talliver turns around.

Lurrah glances at Perigourd.

Talliver asks, "Can someone get us out of this charnel house?"

Roelon nods at Talliver.

Dayzed deeply says, "I can."

Faint green-gold filaments spiral inward from the local surroundings and weave themselves around you.

A light breeze cuts a swath through the cigar smoke around Raythiel, making it eddy and whirl.

Gidion laughs!

Pale, swirling mist begins to billow out from nothingness before you, and quickly coalesces into a small orb of shifting essence. Suddenly, the orb expands and forms an elliptical portal of swirling blues and blacks, its edges shrouded in dancing blue-white mist.

Sorlu smiles quietly to himself.

Talliver steps into the shifting portal.

[Rawknuckle's, Pipe Den]

A mottled grey warg pelt stretches across the plank floor before an uneven brick fireplace on the eastern wall. Several frayed chairs form a loose semicircle around the hearth. Decades of pipe smoke has seeped into the surroundings, leaving the air stale with its burnt herbal tang. You also see the Neovik disk, a shifting portal, a tiny short-haired white puppy with ice blue eyes, the Jivan disk, a raw-boned halfling tavernkeeper, the Regyy disk, an angular-cut prismatic earth rdling, a white-eyed air wyrdling, a brown mouse, a drake greatsword, a swirled steel bowl full of sticks and a wicker wastebin. Also here: Merrymaker Gespry, Bakarus, Gidion, Jiarine, Dendum, Mohrgan, Missoni, Roelon, Perigourd, Talliver, Neovik, Hoy, Jivan, Yakushi, Lord Nordred, Regyy, the body of Whisker who is lying down, Yaba, Repaire, Arena Hero Cabal, Kyrlina who is sitting, Chiyanna who is sitting, Deddalus who is lying down, Theofanis who is lying down Obvious exits: west

Randsford steps out of the shifting portal, followed closely by his group.

Gespry sits down.

Gidion cackles!

Gidion nods.

Roelon deeply says, "Ah don' think ah wll venture into those pits anytime soon."

Tabubu takes a deep breath.

Roelon kneels down.

Tabubu quietly says, "Oh nice."

Roelon falls over.

Randsford nods at Roelon.

Sorlu grins at Roelon.

Gidion cackles!

Aeith says, "This was a much safer way to return."

With a sudden flash of insight, you realize you now understand more of what you have experienced.....

A log crashes and falls over into the fire. The flames grow upon it slowly, like roses awakening, until the whole log is aglow with a garden of embers.

Perigourd asks, speaking to Talliver, "Did Captain Brashton say how long the Firebird is grounded?"

You snuggle against Falvicar, who cradles an arm around you.

You hug Falvicar, and he wraps you in a warm embrace in return.

Roelon moves to a kneeling position.

Falvicar hugs you, and you wrap him in a warm embrace.

Tweaked squeakily exclaims, "What kinda drinks they got out here? Seems too remote for the good stuff!"

You pull Falvicar closer to you.

Roelon stands up.

Dergoatean says, "That escalated quickly."

Nordred strikes a heroic pose.

You quietly whisper to Falvicar, "We are free of all that mess now."

Talliver says, speaking to Perigourd, "She should be able to fly soon enough.  I think he's quite taken with the Hinterwilds."

Dayzed asks, speaking deeply to Repaire, "Spare some healing?"

Dergoatean exclaims, "I mean that really got out of hand fast!"

Repaire says, "Yup."

Falvicar nods in agreement to you.

Gidion exclaims, speaking to Desorceri, "Thanks!"

Falvicar whispers, "I've only 2 gigas on me."

You quietly whisper to Falvicar, "Now to get two more gigas for me and two more for you and we can return home."

Perigourd says, speaking to Talliver, "Perhaps the challenge of piloting amongst those creatures has captured his excitement."

Perigourd chuckles.

Talliver says, "We have a lot to learn from Cold River, and much to explore up here."

Falvicar nods to you.

Perigourd nods in agreement.

Gidion beams!

Gidion exclaims, "Thanks!"

Sorlu nods at Talliver.

Aeith agrees with Talliver.

Lurrah nods slowly.

Whisker grunts, speaking to Gidion, "Thank you!"

Tabubu says, speaking quietly to Zeminar, "You missed the excitement, I have offered to take Bakarus to the Tower dungeons."

Bakarus says, "Good to work with all of you."

Keening wind blows outside, but you are sheltered from the worst of its brutal assault.

Roelon nods at Talliver.

Mohrgan nods at Talliver.

Gidion gazes heavenward.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "That we do! And hopefully it can bring new trade south to us."

Gespry nods at Talliver.

Gespry stands up.

Bakarus smiles at Talliver.

Bakarus says, "See you soon."

Sorlu gazes in amusement at Bakarus.

Sorlu says, "Indeed."

Perigourd says, speaking to Bakarus, "Not if I see you first."

Perigourd smirks.

Lurrah says, "Like how many layers of clothing I really need to keep warm there."

Roelon frowns at Bakarus.

Bakarus says, speaking to Perigourd, "Oh, do not think this was a small affair. You are smarter than that. There are ten of me."

Missoni shifts her eyes to Bakarus.

Bakarus laughs at Perigourd!

Aeith says, "And to the east as well, as the elves have carved a path here in addition."

Missoni sighs.

Perigourd says, speaking to Bakarus, "Each one in it's time."

Dayzed exclaims, speaking deeply to Aeith, "So I've heard!"

Mohrgan asks, speaking quietly to Talliver, "After all, it would be well to establish relations with distant relatives, no?"

Bakarus says, "This takes a cast of characters."

Missoni says, speaking to Perigourd, "Fewer than a baker's dozen."

Bakarus grins.

Sorlu glances between Perigourd and Bakarus.

Whisker stands up.

Perigourd begins chuckling at Missoni!

Falvicar gazes in amusement at Mohrgan.

Bakarus says, speaking to Perigourd, "See you soon then."

Talliver says, "There has been too much bloodshed this evening."

Whisker grunts his thanks.

Dayzed deeply says, "Dabbings are all over the place."

Gidion bows to Whisker.

Gidion grins.

Gidion nods.

You quietly say, "Some of us are still bleeding."

Lurrah holds up her hand and tilts it side to side in a so-so gesture.

You laugh softly, trying to hide your amusement.

Roelon starts chuckling at you!


Talliver glances at Bakarus.

Missoni looks at you with concern.

Talliver slowly empties his lungs.

Jiarine says, "I am surprised that the lich went down so easily."

You quietly exclaim, "Ohh!"

Lurrah says, "Yes, it wass a satisfying time."

You quietly exclaim, "Thank you so much!"

Yaba sits down.

Roelon deeply says, "We all deserve ah much needed rest. And ah pint or two."

Roelon deeply says, "Perhaps even ah keg."

Roelon grumbles. You reach into your scalp coin bag and remove 9750 silver coins. Roundtime: 2 sec.

Falvicar says, speaking quietly to Roelon, "Scotch."

Talliver says, speaking to Jiarine, "With so much of his power expended in protecting the tomb..."

Whisker just went west.


You give Yaba 9,000 coins.

You hug Yaba.

You give Yaba a quick little smooch.

Talliver says, speaking to Jiarine, "I don't think he was able to bring his full might to bear."

You quietly say, "Thank you."

Lurrah agrees with Talliver.

Sorlu says, "He had stretched himself too thin..."

Jiarine says, "Or this was just another plan that is coming to bear fruit."

Dendum says, "Also he was busy being ripped apart by flock of angry giga spirits..."


Talliver says, speaking to Jiarine, "Nonetheless, we'll see how good the disir are at their work."

Sorlu says, "But I epxcted little more from such a broken creature."

Dayzed lets out a cheer!

You place 750 silver coins inside your scalp coin bag.


Talliver nods at Sorlu.

Lurrah says, speaking to Jiarine, "He was so desperate he was stealing his power from the husk of another's heroes."

Mohrgan nods.

Lurrah says, "No real show of strength."

Roelon mutters under his breath.

Jiarine dismissively says, "Mhm."

The wind outside fills the air with low, plaintive moans.

Talliver says, "For now, I'd very much like to go home."

The fire brings a welcome warmth that seems to soak into your very bones and makes you feel relaxed.

Missoni nods understandingly at Talliver.

Bakarus asks, speaking to Talliver, "I can escort you?"

Sorrenn suddenly fades into view.

Bakarus nods encouragingly at Talliver.

Dayzed gazes heavenward.

Lurrah says, "Yes, we've still got an embezzler to find."

Roelon snorts derisively at Bakarus!

Talliver can offer Bakarus only a blank expression.

Lurrah nods at Talliver.

Dayzed asks, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Taking the airship or a caravan?"

Jiarine says, "The one with the lovely amber eyes."

Jiarine clears her throat.

 Talliver says, speaking to Dayzed, "The airship, I think."

Zeminar nods at Bakarus.

Missoni says, speaking to Talliver, "The alchemist, Sparkfinger, is quite skilled at transportation."

Dayzed nods at Talliver. Sorlu flashes a quick grin.

Roelon nods at Sorlu.

Roelon chuckles.

Missoni asks, "Oh? The airship can fly?"

Talliver says, "It will give me a few days more to share family history with Tribia."

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "He said soon."

Perigourd nods at Missoni.

Dayzed nods.

Kave stops to speak with Rawknuckle.

Sorlu nods at Talliver.

Missoni's face lights up with joy.

Kave confers quietly with Rawknuckle.

Missoni nods approvingly.

Lurrah smiles at Talliver.

Mohrgan smiles at Talliver.

Rawknuckle rubs his arthritic hands with a pained sigh.

Roelon nods at Talliver.

Dendum remarks, ""That halfing Tribia has no mate?"

Roelon grins at Dendum.

Talliver stares at Dendum.

Missoni shifts her eyes to Dendum.

Dendum blinks.

Dayzed deeply says, "They are related."

Dayzed chuckles.

You quietly say, "Don't forget your welcome to visit my wedding too Mayor."


You nod at Talliver.

Roelon deeply asks, "Wishin' to be ah Dabbings are we?"

Falvicar wiggles his ears.

Roelon raises an eyebrow in Dendum's direction.

Talliver nods to you.

Bakarus just opened a jagged finger bone reliquary.

 Talliver says, speaking to you, "And happy to do so."

Bakarus removes a dark crystal from in his finger bone reliquary.

Bakarus hangs his dark crystal pendant around his neck.

As Bakarus rubs his dark crystal the air around him seems to flicker slightly and then a robed figure is standing in his place.

Bakarus just closed a jagged finger bone reliquary.

You beam happily at Talliver!

Darcena smiles at Perigourd.

Dayzed nods to Darcena in greeting.

Jiarine says, "The blood here is cursed."

Missoni nods to Darcena in greeting.

Tibs says, "Ouch."

Roelon nods.

Bakarus nods at Zeminar.

Bakarus waves to you.

Falvicar looks at you and hums.

Tibs asks, "Any healing available?"

Darcena nods at Tibs.

Sorlu glances west.

Sorlu appears to be trying hard not to grin.

Falvicar leans over and whispers, "Ready when ye are."


Talliver says, "The... images that Zeban made me see have stuck with me."

Tibs exclaims, speaking to Darcena, "Thank you!"

Sorlu glances at Talliver.

Dayzed deeply says, "Let us hope they do not linger."

Missoni looks at Talliver with concern.

Talliver says, "No, after the disir's touch, I am able to separate what is real from what is not."

Tibs offers Darcena an uncut diamond.

Kave asks, "Anyone healing?"

Darcena accepts Tibs's uncut diamond.

Dergoatean asks, "What were the visions?"

Sorlu says, "Push them out."

Sorlu nods at Talliver.

Missoni nods at Nordred.

Sorlu says, "Good."

Kave turns to Yaba and cheers!

Dergoatean says, "Well, unless talking about them makes it worse, of course."

Talliver says, speaking to Dergoatean, "No."

Roelon asks, speaking deeply to Sorlu, "...how do ye feel without the song near ye?"

Mellchiah says, "I could use some healing too."

Talliver says, "They were images of the Griffin Sword War, or at least I thought they were."

Mellchiah grunts in pain.

Mellchiah grunts sadly, a small tear forming in the corner of his eye.

Mohrgan frowns at Talliver.

Roelon deeply says, "Ah do worry side effects of its absense."

Roelon rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Talliver says, "I saw four hands grasping a sword made of shadows, with a griffin on its hilt."

Mohrgan nods knowingly.

Dayzed frowns.

Methais gawks at Talliver.

Dergoatean ponders.

Sorlu says, speaking to Roelon, "I feel it's presence missing with each breath I take."

Mohrgan closes his eyes for a moment.

Missoni frowns at Talliver.

Sorlu frowns.

Perigourd says, speaking to Talliver, "Those images are hard to fade, regardless of his magic."

An intense chill fills the air surrounding Roelon.

Talliver says, "And the shadow of the sword stretched over the world."

Dergoatean asks, "There were in fact four evil types going after the sword then, right?"

Mohrgan takes a deep breath.

Sorlu says, speaking to Roelon, "But I knew it would need to come to this. I have tried to prepare myself for some time."

Perigourd says, speaking to Dergoatean, "V'tull, Luukos, Mularos, and Sheru."

Dendum shudders.

Mohrgan nods at Dergoatean.

Dergoatean nods at Perigourd.

Roelon nods at Sorlu.

Talliver says, speaking to Dergoatean, "Perhaps Zeban knew that I had battled in the Griffin Sword War."

The fire brings a welcome warmth that seems to soak into your very bones and makes you feel relaxed.

Dergoatean exclaims, speaking to Perigourd, "Evil types!"

Missoni says, speaking to Dergoatean, "There were four pillars of the alliance, and Zerroth was one."

Methais hauls off and slaps Mellchiah up'side the head!

Methais turns to Darcena and cheers!

Dergoatean nods at Talliver.

You shiver.

You quietly say, "That sounds scary."

Missoni bites her lip.

Sorlu says, speaking to Talliver, "I would not be shocked if he did."

Talliver says, "...but under the torment of his magics, this did not feel like a trouble from long ago.  It felt like one yet to come."

Lurrah says, speaking to Missoni, "Yes, but he is free from that now."

Talliver shakes his head.

Perigourd glances appraisingly at Talliver.

Mohrgan frowns at Talliver.

Lurrah smiles quietly to herself.

Talliver angrily says, "Foolishness."

Perigourd says, speaking to Talliver, "Now that would be disturbing."

Sorlu begins to twitch.

Mohrgan concernedly asks, "To...come?"

A pained expression crosses Aeith's face.

You feel the blood drain from your face.

Roelon shrugs.

Dendum remarks, ""Another...war?"

Missoni says, speaking to Lurrah, "That remains to be seen."


Talliver says, "I must go back to the ship."


Talliver just marched off to the west.

Dergoatean nods.

Missoni gazes west.

Lurrah says, speaking to Missoni, "Indeed."

Perigourd gazes west.

Dergoatean says, "And he's gone."

Perigourd frowns.

Dendum says, "Hrmm."

You quietly exclaim, "I sure hope we don't have another battle to come!"

Missoni mutters, "That is unsettling."

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

Aeith says, "That... was ominous indeed."

Dergoatean says, "Well that was really something."

Vaemyr frowns.

Mohrgan quietly says, "Well, that was a very ominous note on which to end the discussion."

Dergoatean says, "It should be quite invigorating to explore the Angarfreft, now."

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "If there were truth in it, yes."

Vaemyr says, "Appoligies for leaving so abruptly..."

Tibs chuckles.

Dendum asks, "Do not need another war....and why did that Disir help the hand of V'tull?"

Missoni says, speaking to Perigourd, "You think the vision was untrue? I hope so."

Ycelacie stares off into space.

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "I think our worst nightmares come from within."

Sorlu nods.

Ycelacie mutters worststory.

Jiarine sarcastically says, "Because we all have the innate goodness deep inside."

You quietly say, "Well if we are getting back home we should go collect some more of those giga token thinys."

Ycelacie mutters ever.

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "And some use magic to access them."

You gaze fondly at Falvicar.

Aeith says, speaking to Dendum, "I agree with both your statement and your question."

Falvicar snuggles up against you, and you cradle an arm around him in response.

You pull Falvicar closer to you.

Roelon nods to you.

Tibs says, speaking to you, "I want some giga token things."

The fire begins to die down somewhat, the flames retreating, and the embers shifting colors as they cool.

Perigourd says, speaking to Missoni, "Gosaena dealt with the sword."

You quietly say, "Have a lovely evening folks."

Nordred says, "I needa find my way back to where i came from to."

You quietly say, "We are going to try and not die while we do a little collecting."

You giggle.

Sorlu smiles at you.

Nordred says, "So anyone have nay ideas, do share so i can escape."

Nordred flails his arms about.

You curtsy to Sorlu.

Perigourd says, speaking to you, "I'd suggest a very strong sentence for Bakarus."
