Eoantos 27-28, 5118

by Leafiara Autumnwind of the TownCrier


Summary

  • Celadon lightning and streaks of yellow light are seen in the sky above Wehnimer's Landing, then a citrine light within Magister Raelee's robes begins to flash and pulse--before a similar colored light in the sky pulses to the same rhythm.
  • Eventually fiery yellow light falls from the sky and sparks fires in the environs and a few inside town, prompting fire brigades to put them out. Afterward green and yellow lightning streaks through the sky and crystalline rocks surrounded by glowing green energy begin plummeting toward the ground. The earliest few crumble into dust as they approach, but later ones start more fires inside town.
  • Finally an especially large fiery rock appears, heralded by celadon and emerald light and a coppery smell in the air, but most of it breaks apart--save for a huge chunk that crashes at the Coastal Cliffs, sending tremors through the area.
  • Afterward a humanoid figure drops from the sky, landing within the Lower Dragonsclaw, where adventurers assemble to find... Glethad, the curator of the Landing museum, who had previously been held in the Hendoran outpost, at the time under Sir Thadston's lead--until the outpost was taken into the Ithzir plane, from which Thadston and the outpost itself had eventually returned, but not Glethad. Captain Shinann calls for Interim Marshal Thadston and, although he doesn't come, militia members do begin to move toward the area.
  • Glethad slowly wakes and says he's home, with a grin but a monotone voice. Looking south toward the Upper Trollfang, he says "it is close," then touches at a collar and says there's much to record and report and that his work isn't done. Puptilian and Mayor Lylia suggest protective custody and Raelee mentions that he was held in the outpost, but Glethad says he will not go to the outpost. Pup suggests the brass tower and Glethad says it's flawed.
  • Glethad says he won't resist the militia and Thadston understands, and he needs fresh tomes and little disturbance of his work. Lylia says she'd like the Magister to ward his cell, to which Shinann and Raelee agree, as well as spiritual warding from Xorus. Sir Cryheart suggests a bracer that can track him, but Glethad says he isn't going anywhere, seeks only to do his work, and is no danger to them as long as he's permitted to do that. With that, militiamen arrive and take Glethad away.

Log

Lightning Show

[Town Square Central]

This is the heart of the main square of Wehnimer's Landing. The impromptu shops of the bazaar are clustered around this central gathering place, where townsfolk, travellers, and adventurers meet to talk, conspire or raise expeditions to the far-flung reaches of Elanith. At the north end, an old well, with moss-covered stones and a craggy roof, is shaded from the moonlight by a strong, robust tree. The oak is tall and straight, and it is apparent that the roots run deep. You also see some stone benches with some stuff on it and an herbal remedy donation bin.

A warm, copper smelling breeze stirs through the area.

[Several minutes later, it returns...]

A warm, copper smelling breeze stirs through the area.

[A few minutes later, again...]

A warm, copper smelling breeze stirs through the area.

[Several minutes later...]

A huge clap of thunder ripples across the heavens.

A bolt of celadon-hued lighting streaks across the sky briefly, leaving behind a pale green afterglow in its wake.

A crackle of energy pulses in the air as another bolt of celadon lightning arcs across the dark heavens.

A streak of yellow light bleeds across the sky momentarily before fading away.

The air hums with an unseen energy.


Flashing Raelee

The citrine light from within Raelee's robes begins to brighten even more.

[Lots of glances at Raelee]

>look rae

Flames dance around Raelee wreathing her in a torrent of violent energy.

You see Magister Raelee Svala the Scholar of the Hall of Mages.

She appears to be a Human from Chastonia.

She is shorter than average and has a small-boned build. She appears to have come of age. She has distant, gold-flecked snow white eyes and milky white skin. She has long, loosely ringleted copper red hair. She has a small, tangled burn mark on her neck. She has a slender, porcelain-like countenance, made more striking by the rounded angles of her face.

She has an inky black sigil on her wrist, a quartet of tiny glyphs tattooed vertically along the inside of her left forearm, a complex gold circular tattoo on the back of her right hand, and a pale pattern of gold lines and sigils tattooed up her right arm.

She is in good shape.

She is wearing some russet bronze-scaled leathers, a small bone periapt, a twin-buckled supple leather satchel slung over her shoulder, a complicated gold-wired earcuff, a flat-linked gold choker suspending a bronze-framed column of garnets, a small blonde leather neck pouch, a deeply hooded white linen robe, a deep burgundy linen dress with a boat neck trimmed in gold brocade, an arm-length leather casting gauntlet, a segmented silk components pack, a pair of pale linen handwraps, a sunstone-set bronze and gold band, a blue-jeweled heavy gold ring, and some side-laced blonde leather boots.

Cryheart asks, "Ye ok?"

Speaking brusquely to Cryheart, Raelee says, "Quite fine."

A citrine-hued light flashes from within Raelee's robe. Once. Twice. There is a pause. Then another pulse. Then another.

A citrine-hued light flashes in the night sky. Once. Twice. There is a pause, then another pulse. Then another.

[More glances at Raelee]

Speaking to Raelee, Puptilian says, "Seems someone or something wants your attention."

Gryzzlbok exclaims, "Remove the robes!"

Gryzzlbok snickers.

Speaking to Raelee, Sorranie asks, "Finally going to give the Landing the Solhaven treatment?"

Speaking to Puptilian, Raelee counters, "And yet 'someone or something' seems to have the lot of yours."

A citrine-hued light flashes from within Raelee's robe. Once. Twice. There is a pause. Then another pulse. Then another.

Speaking to Raelee, Puptilian says, "Can't blame us when you glow more than Pukk after a spell up."

Cryheart says, "Ye be sparkling."

Raelee hisses, "The conditions are not quite correct."

Speaking quietly to Raelee, Pukk exclaims, "Those must have been made by a special tailor!"

Speaking to Raelee, Shinann asks, "Correct for what?"

Lylia mildly says, "Magister, if you brought me a gift, it is thoughtful of you, but rather showier than I would have expected."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Puptilian asks, "And?"

Speaking dryly to Shinann, Raelee says, "'The Solhaven Treatment', as it were."

There is a final flash of citrine light from within Raelee's robes and then it fades.

Pukk quietly says, "Awwwww."

Zosopage says, "Odd."

Pukk quietly says, "The light's gone."

Pukk quietly says, "It was so pretty."

Speaking to Puptilian, Stormyrain says, "The cards were not reading the current situation."

Skipjack says, "So much energy..."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Puptilian says, "Your mind was probably on the wrong subject then."

(Raelee pats her robe again.)

A bright streak of yellow light rips across the heavens!

Raelee furrows her brow.

Lyrna asks, "Ah, so... what was the 'Solhaven treatment'?"

Speaking slowly to Puptilian, Stormyrain says, "They didn't read Cay, either."

(Raelee pats her robes a few more times.)

Xorus says, "It was annihilated in a flood."

Lyrna blinks.

Lyrna says, "Oh..."

Lyrna shifts her weight.

Roblar commands the local spirits to aid him, an intense expression on his face as he stares straight ahead...

Roblar gestures.

A flare leaves Roblar's hand and shoots up into the sky where it hangs for a few moments before exploding into a massive golden lightning bolt that spans the sky. The sheer brightness of the image before you lingers in your sight for several seconds after the explosion can no longer be seen.

Pukk quietly says, "That explains everything abou Raelee. Those lights would fry and zap any suitors that tried to approach her. Special chastity robes."

Pukk nods knowingly.

A giant clap of deafening thunder echoes across the night.

Roblar deeply says, "Cooked it."

Cryheart says, "That was loud."

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "How gauche."

Roblar deeply says, "Ma lightnin iz hot."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "No, I don't use a gauche. I use gloves."

Roblar deeply says, "Makes big boom."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk exclaims, "But thank you for asking!"

Skipjack says, "Not sure I've ever seen a storm quite like this one..."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Puptilian says, "Well at least the gods leave me alone so I simply feel bad for who ever the cards hated tonight."

Cryheart says, "Tis strange indeed."

Tordol says, "Very odd, even felt it inside the caves up in the hills."

(Raelee smoothes her robe again, after patting it one last time.)

Speaking quietly in Elven to Pukk, Saranja asks, "Chastity robes...like your personality?"

Bass says, "Not sure what's up."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "At least I didn't tell her that she lit up my life."


Sparks Fly

Bursting out from the veil of the night, a fiery yellow mote of light descends rapidly, streaking down from the heavens and falling fast, landing in the Lower Dragonsclaw forest where a spark of yellow flames shoots up!

[Fire brigades assemble...]

Another sphere of yellow fire falls from the sky as if tearing into existance! It plummets and lands in the Upper Trollfang!

[As Sir Cryheart goes through the Lower Dragonsclaw...]

Yellow flames rise up from the Upper Trollfang.

[...and finally...]

[Upper Trollfang]

This is the western end of a badly overgrown and neglected road. Small piles of paving stones can be seen nearby, but the large amount of weeds that cover them indicate to you that they have not been moved in quite some time. You also see a large yellow fire, a large yellow fire, a large yellow fire, a large yellow fire and a large yellow fire.

Cryheart points at a large yellow fire.

The world burns while Cryheart is lost and everyone dies. The End?

Lauranathalasa laughs!

Pukk laughs!

Lyrna laughs!

Ralkean says, "Lol."

Tsarok laughs!

Lyrna grins.

Cryheart raises his fist defiantly.

Tsarok lets out a cheer!

Ghianna laughs!

[Firefighting!]

Another sphere of yellow fire drops from the sky, landing just outside of the North Gate of town! Flames rise up in its wake!

The sky bleeds with yellow and green wisps of light as another huge globule of yellow fire streaks down like a burning meteor and lands within Wehnimer's Landing! Townspeople scream from the corners of Shanty Town as a building collapses from the impact and yellow flames rise up quickly!

[More people split up toward different fires.]

The sky ripples with a citrine-hued light and more fiery meteors streak down to the ground! One strikes in the Dragonsclaw, then another! A third strikes in the Wooded Hills and yellow flames stretch to the sky.


Crystal Meteors

'There is a clap of deafening thunder once more, and the sky bleeds with green and yellow lightning. A huge crystalline rock bursts into existance, surrounding by glowing green energy that crackles about. The huge rock begins to descend.

As the huge crystalline rock continues to speed towards the ground, it eventually breaks apart and crumbles into dust, a shower of green and yellow drifting to the ground like a curtain of ash.

Another clap of thunder heralds the arrive of two jagged crystalline rocks, both wreathed in emerald flames. The rocks seem to be on course to land near Wehnimer's Landing, but they too break apart not long after their arrival.

The sky bellows with a thunderous clap as a multitude of pockets rip open in the blanket of night. Dozens and dozens of yellow fiery globules streak down like falling meteors, scattering all over Wehnimer's Landing's west and south ring road. Buildings and shops ignite with yellow flames, as townspeople run screaming with terror into the night, some even consumed by the quickly spreading fires.

[Wehnimer's, West Ring Rd.]

The road passes beneath the shadow of the palisade. Before you sprawls a gaudily-painted structure, adorned with elaborate carvings depicting scenes of commerce and lit by polished brass lamps. This is the Merchant's Guild, where the business people of town, from wealthy traders to lowly street peddlers, meet to discuss matters of mutual concern. You also see a huge yellow fire, a huge yellow fire and the scorched remains of a house.

Also here: Felita, Skipjack, High Lady Lauranathalasa, Bernadette, Mister Pukk, Maiden Leafiara, Ghianna, Shyspirit, Saranja, High Lord Gryzzlbok, Stormyrain, Chaoswynd, Pietra, Conquerer of Reim Claudaro, Lyrna, Squire Legionnaire Rinswynd, Lord Flessen, Nodyre, Azuryn, Sorranie, Zosopage, Lord Chamorr, Khobra, Shinann, Sir Cryheart

[Unlike the previous fires, these are rather overwhelming and eventually...]

Another huge fiery rock falls from the sky, the air whistling as it speeds towards the ground before breaking apart moments before what would be a devastating impact.

[Triage assembles in the square...]

Yellow flames continue to burn along West and South ring roads in town, casting a citrine-hued glow along the shops and homes. Townspeople scream in horror still, many fleeing from the fires.

A huge clap of thunder rips across the sky, and ribbons of celadon and emerald light seep across the sky as a coppery aroma infuses the air. The largest fiery rock yet appears, birthed into existence as it tears into view from behind the night sky. The crystalline rock is huge, blotting out stars as it begins to descend towards Wehnimer's Landing.

The huge crystalline rock continues to fall, burning across the sky as flames of green and yellow light trail behind it, forging a bright glowing blaze.

The huge crystalline rock in the sky seems to slow, but it begins to burn even brighter. The flame surrounding it begin to dance more rapidly, thrashing about as if lashing out in pain, trying to grasp at something.

As the huge rock continues to slow, a visible crack forms in its center.

But despite much of the huge crystal rock breaking apart, a giant fragment seems to survive, and begins to pick up speed, hurling towards the ground! Seconds later, the huge crystalline fragment makes its impact along the Coastal Cliffs and the ground shakes with a chorus of tremors!

Roblar falls to the ground!

[As do Ehria, Bjarn, Cytiger, Ghianna, Cryheart, Risiss, Dwi, Nodyre, Chaoswynd, Sanvenae, Rinswynd, Niderom, Chamorr, Deftone, Cutley, Bernadette, Pietra, Aloana, Skipjack, Sorranie, Helak, Tsarok, Flessen, Cyllene, Aerowand, Felita, Pukk, Devandriel, Zosopage, Claudaro, Anstara, Lauranathalasa, Junarra, Shinann, Leafiara, and Balzighast.]

The ground beneath you violently shakes and rumbles causing you to fall down!

Roundtime: 12 sec.

The ground beneath you violently shakes and rumbles!

Roundtime: 11 sec.

The ground beneath you violently shakes and rumbles!

Roundtime: 7 sec.

The ground beneath you violently shakes and rumbles!

Roundtime: 8 sec.

A large cloud of dust rises from the Coastal Cliffs.


Glethad's Return

[People go to investigate the cliffs.]

Another clap of thunder echoes across the heavens, as a bright yellow spark of light ignites in the sky.

[Eventually the fallen crystalling fragment is found...]

[Coastal Cliffs]

Gravel from boulders ground down by time and harsh elements crunches beneath your feet. Tiny saplings thrive in the shelter of old growth as the forest seems to close in around you. You also see a huge yellow crystalline fragment.

>look frag

The fragment is mammoth in size, stretching up towards the sky like a jagged crystalline spearhead. Celadon-hued wisps of light swirl about within the opaque yellow surface, lazily twisting about like ethereal serpents. The giant crystal is wedged firmly into the ground as if having struck the dirt with a powerful force, as the very earth around its impact site has rippled and bent.

The sky burns again with a coppery odor and streaks of yellow and green light stretch about like cracks in the heavens. But this time, no rock or flame falls from the sky. Instead, the distant form of what appears to be a humanoid drops from the sky, seemingly encased in a glow of yellow light. The figure falls rapidly, dropping quickly and landing out of sight somewhere within the Lower Dragonsclaw forest.

[So people assemble there...]

[Lower Dragonsclaw, Forest]

Pine cones are scattered about the ground here, knocked down by the movement of small animals through the trees and the wind that buffets this outlying section of the forest.

Also here: Shyspirit, Anstara, Cytiger, Azuryn, Niderom, High Lady Lauranathalasa, Dwi, Bernadette, Lord Chamorr, Felita, Zosopage, Mister Pukk, Lord Flessen, Nodyre, Chaoswynd, Squire Legionnaire Rinswynd, Pietra, Tsarok, Sorranie, Skipjack, Sir Cryheart, Maiden Leafiara, Shinann, Great Lady Sanvenae, Tetreves, Lyrna, Helak, Khobra, Vice Chancellor Xorus, Mayor Lylia, Deftone, Great Lord Rattas, Commander Roblar, Conquerer of Reim Claudaro, Magister Raelee, Puptilian, Glethad who is lying down

Tetreves pulls Glethad to his feet.

You see Glethad.

He appears to be a Half-Sylvan.

He is taller than average. He appears to be youthful. He has tired deep sea blue eyes and fair skin. He has shoulder length, silky deep black hair. He has an angular face, an upturned nose and sharply curved ears. He appears very thin and malnourished with various sores and blisters covering his hands and feet.

He is in good shape.

He is wearing a yellow crystalline amulet, a twisted crystal-inset collar, a fine silvery-blue tunic crossed with a green tabard, a small black leather backpack, a dusty leather pack, a pocketed black leather belt, a silver-laced black burlap sack, a grey alchemy bag, a scorched compass case, and a pair of dark cotton pants.

Cryheart says, "Hello Glethad."

Yellow sparks of light rise up from Glethad's body.

Glethad falls over.

Speaking to Glethad, Leafiara greets, "Hello there."

Speaking heartily to Glethad, Chamorr says, "Evenin sparky."

Lauranathalasa asks, "Who's this guy?"

Speaking to Cryheart, Skipjack asks, "You know each other?"

Speaking to Glethad, Raelee asks, "Was any portion of your mind restored?"

Rattas says, "That amulet he is wearing looks like the fragment at coastal cliffs."

Cryheart says, "Somewhat."

Speaking to Glethad, Anstara asks, "You seem to be a little on fire?"

Speaking to Glethad, Lylia says, "Welcome back."

Lyrna says, "A smaller version."

Dwi heartily asks, "Mayer knows em?"

Xorus says, "Rather blistered."

Claudaro says, "Oh, just what this town needed, another Alchemist."

Speaking to Dwi, Lylia says, "Quite a few of us remember this man."

Anstara asks, "Is he from the ether? How'd he get up in that meteor?"

Cryheart says, "That is a good question."

Lylia explains, "He is a former curator of the museum. He has...been on an extended and rather far-ranging holiday, however."

Speaking quietly to himself, Niderom says, "No, not from the ether."

Anstara says, "Oh."

Speaking to Anstara, Puptilian says, "Last we heard from him he was off doing Stone's bidding."

Speaking to Glethad, Lyrna asks, "Are you alright?"

Speaking quietly to himself, Niderom says, "Not originally."

Glethad sits down.

Speaking heartily to Glethad, Dwi says, "Sorry dey dint bring no healers."

Cytiger asks, "Does he not speak?"

Speaking to Glethad, Shinann says, "If I remember correctly, you were under lock and key when you were taken."

Skipjack says, "The museum....that's where I've seen this fella before."

Speaking heartily to Glethad, Dwi says, "Oldsters...ye know."

Glethad looks about, slowly, his eyes squinting against the dark of the night sky.

Niderom offers Glethad a tincture of acantha.

Skipjack says, "..and now he's falling outta the sky like a shooting star."

Anstara says, "Oh hey, he's waking up."

Speaking to Skipjack, Leafiara admits, "Seen stranger things."

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Niderom says, "Perhaps a sip of this."

Speaking to Glethad, Zosopage asks, "What are you looking for?"

Niderom offers Glethad a tincture of yabathilium.

Chamorr heartily says, "He was or is one of Stone's minions."

Speaking to Leafiara, Skipjack says, "Fair enough."

Glethad covers his eyes partially, squinting against the light of the moon.

Niderom quietly says, "This is a sweeter drink."

Speaking heartily to Cytiger, Dwi says, "Foller me when it's time to skeedaddle."

Cryheart says, "I think ye missed landing in town square."

Cryheart nods at Glethad.

Xorus says, "Good evening, Glethad. Kol'Tarsken was pleasant, apparently."

Cytiger says, "Aye."

Lauranathalasa says, "He is malnourished, maybe he needs food and water."

Speaking to Leafiara, Devandriel asks, "Any idea what's going on?"

Speaking to Glethad, Puptilian asks, "You are home. Do you remember where?"

Niderom offers Glethad a glass of cool refreshing water.

Speaking heartily to Lauranathalasa, Dwi says, "Maybe I needs some ale."

Glethad declines Niderom's offer.

Speaking to Devandriel, Leafiara replies, "He might be about to tell us."

Glethad touches the ground, twisting some dirt between his tattered fingers.

Chamorr heartily says, "Maybe he needs his head lopped off."

Dwi offers Glethad a flask of clove-scented cider.

Glethad monotonously says, "Home."

Glethad declines Dwi's offer.

Cryheart says, "Close."

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Lylia says, "Yes. It should look familiar to you."

Speaking to Glethad, Anstara asks, "We're in the Dragonsclaw Forest. Do you know where that is?"

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "Would have to look it up but I do wonder if he is still wanted for his aiding in the escape of Stone."

Glethad flashes a wide grin.

Shinann: "Thadston, can you hear me? Glethad just fell from the sky..."

Speaking to Glethad, Raelee asks, "Why now? Why tonight?"

Glethad grins at Raelee.

Zosopage says, "You missed the turkey feast."

Militia move hurriedly through the streets of town.

Skipjack says, "I'm a generally positive person...but even I'm not grinnin like that after falling from such great heights...."

Shinann: "Report from town please?"

Glethad looks down at his hands, then the crowd again.

Glethad monotonously says, "Home."

Glethad nods.

Cryheart says, "Aye...ye are close."

Speaking to Glethad, Anstara says, "You good? You look like you got burned pretty bad."

Claudaro says, "He's gone simple."

Evician: "Town's still here Captain."

Dwi heartily says, "He's stunned."

Zosopage asks, "You want us to take you home?"

Cytiger says, "Welcome home."

Glethad monotonously says, "I am...home."

Speaking to Glethad, Apoc says, "Ya burned most of it."

Dwi offers Glethad a flask of clove-scented cider.

Glethad declines Dwi's offer.

Xorus says, "Tuli. Yes, home."

Zosopage says, "At least close by."

Shinann: "See if you can find Thadston, please."

Glethad stands up.

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Niderom says, "Much will seem familiar, but much has changed as well."

Cryheart says, "Ye landed near home..but outside."

Glethad looks to the south, beyond the Lower Dragonsclaw, his eyes turned to what lies within the Upper Trollfang.

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Niderom says, "Better for the town, with that landing. Safer for the townsfolk."

Speaking to Glethad, Zosopage asks, "What do you see there?"

Cryheart nods at Niderom.

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Glethad monotonously says, "It is close."

Glethad nods.

Speaking to Glethad, Puptilian says, "Yes he is that way."

Glethad smiles.

Lyrna asks, "What is close?"

Cryheart asks, "Home?"

Pukk quietly says, "I see trees."

Speaking to Glethad, Rinswynd says, "Is your home to the south."

Tetreves asks, "What is close?"

Speaking to Glethad, Shinann asks, "What is close?"

Evician: "I'll do my best."

Chamorr heartily says, "Don't let this guy inside the gates."

Speaking offhandedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "So does he."

Puptilian says, "A certain set of trees."

Anstara asks, "Didn't some of those meteors land there earlier?"

Leafiara nods absently at Puptilian.

Shinann: "Thank you... tell him Glethad is here. He will know."

Zosopage asks, "The black trees?"

Speaking to Glethad, Rinswynd asks, "Is there something in the upper trollfang?"

Glethad reaches up, touching the collar around his neck.

Cytiger asks, "Maybe something was dropped in Lower Dragonsclaw?"

Speaking heartily to Dwi, Chamorr says, "Meteors are all fun an games, til one lands on yer head."

Lauranathalasa says, "Oh, he is into kinky stuff."

Cryheart says, "Nice collar."

Speaking to Cytiger, Skipjack says, "Something was dropped alright...him."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "Of my opinion if we do not arrest him at least prevent him from going south until we know more about his state of mind. Even if he isn't willingly helping him, he may be compelled to help against his own good."

Pukk quietly says, "I like mine better."

Pukk taps a ruby-thorned black iron collar etched with roses that he is wearing.

Speaking to Puptilian, Anstara says, "Plus, he looks like he's in shock."

Speaking to Glethad, Zosopage asks, "Is that collar there by your choosing?"

Glethad monotonously says, "Much to record...much to report."

Xorus says, "Indeed."

Cryheart asks, "Who sent ye here, Glethad?"

Speaking to Glethad, Puptilian asks, "To who?"

Glethad monotonously says, "My work is not done."

Speaking to Glethad, Rinswynd asks, "Who do you need to report to?"

Glethad grins at Cryheart.

Lylia explains, "Protective custody." [If this was a reply to something, I've missed it... possibly a semi-agreement with Pup?]

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Leafiara sighs, "Always with the 'my work is not done' or 'my mission is not done' around here."

Cryheart nods at Glethad.

Rinswynd says, "Looks like a spy."

Cryheart asks, "To whom do ye need to report?"

Anstara asks, "Whose work is ever done?"

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Chamorr says, "Don't bring him inside the gates."

Claudaro asks, "Perhaps ask these questions when he's in a place he can't just bolt away from?"

Niderom quietly says, "I don't recall any charges posted on the boards."

Glethad twists slightly, cracking his spine. He looks much better.

Lylia scornfully replies, "Do you think the gates matter? Do you think they are made of some mythical substance that Stone cannot see past, or that they are inviolable? It is little better than a superstition."

Niderom quietly asks, "There's a new mayor... several mayors?"

Speaking carefully to Lylia, Raelee suggests, "... he has been held quite successfully in the Outpost before."

Glethad slowly empties his lungs.

Lylia says, "I have no intention of holding the man in an ordinary cell. In or out of the town."

Glethad monotonously says, "I shall not go to the outpost."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian asks, "Brass tower?"

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Niderom says, "If you wish to step directly to town and are wearied from your... impact."

Cryheart says, "Well...he is nae totally stunned."

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Chamorr says, "I take that as a no."

Glethad monotonously says, "Your brass tower has proven flawed."

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Pukk says, "We wouldn't think of sending you there."

Puptilian says, "It even held Stone for a while before he had help getting out."

Glethad monotonously says, "You know this...Puptilian."

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Niderom says, "I can open a portal there."

Glethad grins at Puptilian.

Lylia dryly remarks, "If it were the Mithril Tower, perhaps."

Glethad looks towards town, then nods.

Glethad monotonously says, "The militia are coming for me."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Speaking to Glethad, Puptilian says, "Flaws that we know of and can make preparations for."

Lylia replies, "Protective custody."

Glethad monotonously says, "I will not resist. Thadston understands."

Zosopage says, "Could put him at the top of the Reach and block the tunnels."

Lylia stresses, "And not in an ordinary cell."

Xorus asks, "You can sense that, or infer it?"

Pukk quietly says, "I saw we lock him in the Mayor's office."

Chamorr heartily says, "Put im in the mayor's office."

Speaking to Lylia, Rinswynd says, "A cell sounds like a waste of time."

Glethad monotonously says, "It has been made known to me." [I'm taking this as a response to Xorus, but since I'm not 100% sure, I'm leaving Xorus' prior line unbolded. It could possibly be a response to Lylia.]

Speaking to Puptilian, Skipjack asks, "What is he talking about?"

Xorus grins at Glethad.

Speaking quietly to Niderom, Pukk says, "Oh, I gave up on getting her indicted...she seems so much fun when all this chaos happens around her. I say we keep her until the next election."

Speaking to Skipjack, Puptilian says, "The brass tower was used to hold Stone. He was one of those that helped to break him free of that tower."

Speaking to Glethad, Shinann says, "I have word out to Thadston. We will take you into custody, for everyone's safety for now."

Glethad monotonously says, "I will need fresh tomes."

Glethad nods at Shinann.

Speaking to Rinswynd, Lylia asks, "The man is not going to roam free. He cannot sit in a normal cell of stone and bars. He is not getting a cozy room at Silvergate. Do you have any futher suggestions?"

Speaking quietly to Glethad, Pukk says, "Don't go to tombs. There are always dead people there."

Anstara asks, "How'd he get way up there?"

Anstara points up.

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Chamorr says, "The garden in Moot Hall, the one under yer office."

Zosopage says, "Can put him in the museum. I always get lost in there."

Glethad monotonously asks, "Yes?"

Glethad peers quizzically at Shinann.

Shinann nods.

Glethad nods.

Shinann says, "Come with me."

Speaking to Zosopage, Puptilian says, "No. Too many things in there to get him into trouble."

Glethad grins at Wolfloner.

Shinann just went west.

Shinann just arrived.

Speaking to Shinann, Lylia says, "Captain, I --"

Lylia clears her throat.

Shinann asks, "Yes?"

Speaking to Puptilian, Zosopage says, "I suppose that's true too."

Glethad monotonously says, "...and I wish little disturbance. I have much work to do."

Shinann says, "I am thinking Thadston is the only one that truly can answer this."

Cryheart asks, "What kind of work?"

Shinann says, "Umm."

Speaking heartily to Glethad, Chamorr says, "I bet ya do."

Glethad monotonously says, "He shall not be pleased shall any detail be missed."

Speaking to Shinann, Lylia says, "He should not be in an un-warded cell. I would like the Magister to provide additional warding."

Speaking to Cryheart, Puptilian says, "His research for his master."

Lylia adds, "If she is willing, that is."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Speaking to Lylia, Raelee says, "Very well."

Lylia says, "Thank you."

Shinann says, "All right."

Zosopage says, "He won't tell us which means it's not good for us."

A Wehnimer's town militiaman just arrived!

A Wehnimer's town militiaman just arrived!

A Wehnimer's town militiaman just arrived!

A Wehnimer's town militiaman just arrived!

A Wehnimer's town militiaman just arrived!

Speaking to Shinann, Lylia says, "And another thing.."

Speaking quietly to a Wehnimer's town militiaman, Pukk says, "Good timing."

Lylia murmurs, "Almost sounded like Hapenlok there..."

Pukk quietly asks, "Happy is here?"

Speaking to Glethad, Rinswynd asks, "You gonna burn the town down more than you already did?"

Speaking to Shinann, Lylia says, "My advisor will provide spiritual warding while the Magister provides elemental protection."

Cryheart says, "Perhaps we should hae a bracer or something that can help us track em."

Glethad peers quizzically at Rinswynd.

Glethad monotonously says, "No."

Rinswynd smirks.

Speaking to Xorus, Lylia says, "Thank you."

Speaking quietly to Zosopage, Niderom says, "If that was a crime, every merchant, politician, innkeeper, lady of the evening, and mayor would be held in your desired "unwarded cell"."

Glethad monotonously says, "I am not going anywhere, Sir Cryheart."

Glethad nods at Cryheart.

Shinann says, "I think that is wise."

Shinann nods at Lylia.

Cryheart says, "That is apparent, Glethad."

Niderom quietly says, "He won't tell us which means it's not good for us."

Evician: "No sign of the Marshal, Captain."

Cryheart says, "Considering ye stated ye need to record and report."

Glethad monotonously says, "I seek only to do my work. It is imperative that I am permitted to do such."

Glethad monotonously says, "I am no danger to you so long as we are in agreement with that."

Niderom quietly says, "A good work ethic."

Glethad grins slowly.

Shinann: "Thank you, Evician. We do have some of our people out here. I will try to find him later."

Speaking dryly to Glethad, Raelee says, "I have been saying the same for years. And yet..."

Cryheart says, "That is the question."

Cryheart asks, "Is it nae?"

You hear an unpleasant wet crunching sound from the shadows.

Evician: "Roger that."

Speaking to Niderom, Zosopage says, "I said nothing of the kind."

Dwi heartily asks, "So ...who's dat haff ear?"

Lylia warmly says, "Hello there."

Cruxophim suddenly fades into view.

Speaking casually to Glethad, Cruxophim greets, "Been a while."

Chamorr heartily says, "Whack him now."

Speaking to Glethad, Rinswynd says, "Unless you tell these officials what you're doing, they will never move aside.. so you will have to either tell them or find other ways."

Glethad grins at Cruxophim.

Glethad flashes a wide grin.

Cruxophim dubiously inquires, "Whack whom now?"

Glethad monotonously says, "I am ready."

Glethad nods to the town militiaman.

Glethad monotonously says, "It is...good to be home."

Glethad gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Glethad flashes a wide grin.

Speaking to Glethad, Shinann says, "I am not happy with our options, but this will have to do for now."

Speaking to a Wehnimer's town militiaman, Lylia says, "This man is to be guarded and warded at all times. Both elemental and spiritual barriers."

Glethad monotonously says, "Very good."

Puptilian says, "No, no it's not good that you are home."

Skipjack asks, "Ready...for what?"

Speaking heartily to Glethad, Dwi asks, "Ye libes inna dis forest?"

Glethad glances at Puptilian.

Speaking to a Wehnimer's town militiaman, Shinann says, "Just consider I told you that."

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Chamorr says, "Outpost cells."

Lylia repeats, "...welcome home. We shall talk later. I should like to hear of your absence and where you have been."

Rinswynd says, "Let's see how long that cell lasts."

Chamorr heartily says, "Wow."

Glethad steps towards the militia, who fall in around Glethad and bind his hands. The militia escort Glethad off towards town and the barracks.
