Summary

Short Version

Pylasar arrives and fishes with everyone, saying that "he" will find "her," seemingly in reference to Thadston finding Raznel, but that maybe he shouldn't and neither should anyone go with him. He says "it's not time" and "it should have been Tamzzyr" (presumed to refer to Prelate Chaston attempting to destroy Tamzzyr but instead destroying Talador). He tells Falvicar that he'll know his father and tells Balley to keep washing her hands. Pylasar says he once helped Naimorai hide "some of them" and that she probably has more now; at first thinking he couldn't find them, he eventually leaves for the night after realizing that maybe "that one" can find them.


Bullet Points

  • While Landing adventurers wait outside Moot Hall for the seeming impending arrival of Pylasar, Tzii insults the flower girl only for her to return fire. One odd event follows another as a doppelganger of Sir Cryheart appears and toys with the group--only to soon remove the costume and reveal himself as Pylasar!
  • Darcena asks for a fate tart and the purple mage indulges, giving her one that tells her to scratch and sniff life. Pylasar says "Gracie" loved the rain, like her mother, then seems to lose track of the situation and gives Darcena a second fate tart with the same fortune as before. Yosaffbrig asks where he's been and he says he's been about town and isn't much of a traveler.
  • Pylasar says Falvicar seems familiar to him yet not, then greets Balley as "Korafest the sacrificer," saying she still looks young and telling her to keep washing her hands. As she asks for clarification, Pylasar again seems confused and unaware of the situation; Leafiara asks if he's alright, but he says he's fine.
  • Pylasar's claim of being fine comes into question as he begins having a conversation with himself, saying "it was supposed to be Tamzzyr" but it's not. Mayor Lylia, Leafi, Thrassus, Puptilian, and Cryheart presume he's referring to Prelate Chaston Griffin's attempt to destroy Tamzzyr with the blood marble obelisk deep beneath Talador, which instead ultimately fired its magic upon the surface of Talador, resulting in the creation of the Bleaklands.
  • Once again losing sight of where and when he is, Pylasar greets Neopuron as the Mayor of 5121. Yosa offers Pylasar a mint and dark chocolate bar, which he accepts and says is Gracie's favorite; Maags asks who Gracie is, and he says a "hollow sorcerer."
  • As Pylasar whispers to himself about "gold then black, gold then black, gold then bleak," Yosa asks if he'd be able to take a lady with him as he travels through time--but Pylasar says time travel is absurd and the stuff of fairy tales.
  • Pylasar suddenly remembers Falvicar's father's eyes and that's how he knew him--but, when Falvicar asks if he knows his father, Pylasar says no. Wintersylph asks if the Talador mines and Jantalarian invasion are the subject of his "gold to black" murmurings, but he says that makes no sense and she's crazy.
  • Suddenly Pylasar wants to go fishing at the docks, so the group goes over. Falvicar inquires about his father's age, saying even he doesn't know him, but Pylasar says he will.
  • Darcena asks if he likes fishing; he says he doesn't; she asks why he wanted to go fishing; he says he didn't and just followed everyone. She suggests slaughtering things next time and he says there's plenty of time soon for that, "more than you will want." Darcena, Leafi, and Claudaro immediately say there's never more than they want.
  • Pylasar muses that "he" is going to find "her," but probably shouldn't. Pup jokes that he's saying Thadston will find Magister Raelee, but he says not her yet; Cryheart asks about Casiphia, but Pylasar says Naimorai. He says maybe it isn't time and maybe he shouldn't find her and should keep fishing; he muses about how "she" would always say "Be careful what you wish for Peter," playfully at first. Lylia asks if he was careful and he says "once."
  • Pylasar says "he" shouldn't go and others shouldn't go with him--that it isn't time and it should have been Tamzzyr. Roblar and Leafi take this as even more reason to go with him. Maags asks if he's trying to catch a fish or a witch, but Pylasar says he couldn't catch her if he tried and that he helped her hide "some of them" once, but can't remember where they are and that she probably has more now. When Shinann asks what was hidden, he seems distracted by the fact that he can't catch a fish.
  • But, at last, a fish is on Pylasar's line! He eventually reels in a mottled scorpion sculpin. After trying to bite it and getting slapped in the face, he sets it on the ground and tells it to go home--while others try and fail to get across to him that he has to throw it back. Eventually Roblar picks it up and cuts it open as Pylasar takes offense and says Roblar's dead to him. He gives Roblar a fate tart that says he'll slay a sculpin and anger a purple god.
  • Pylasar throws purple dirt at Roblar, whose body begins to shift and gain curves! ...but soon the purple dirt falls, having no effect. So instead Pylasar commands the fish to rise in anger! Soon purple bubbles rise from the sea and pop in midair, releasing purple sculpins to fall on the dock... where they flop around and do nothing. That is, anyway, until a sculpin falls on Roblar, severing his leg! Then a second falls on him, killing him!
  • Pylasar realizes that even though he can't find all of the hidden ones, maybe "that one" could. He assures everyone he'll be back yesterday, then turns into a sculpin and swims away.

A Rose's Thorns

[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 an elongated red heart-shaped sign that reads, "Vote for someone with heart. Vote Femereff for Mayor!", a crimson-edged grey maoral sign that reads, "Keep Your Children Safe. Vote for Lylia!", an herbal remedy donation bin and some stone benches with some stuff on it.

A bolt of purple lightning streaks across the night sky, leaving a tail of violet energy burning in its wake.

Falvicar quietly says, "Ohhh yes."

Maags exclaims, "Oh look!"

Puptilian says, "Hmm."

Puptilian says, "Interesting."

Zireael says, "What odd weather..."

Puptilian says, "We get to see that wizard again."

Maags exclaims, "It mus be yesterday!"

Thrassus asks, "Ah, it's the senile time traveller, perhaps?"

Cryheart says, "Pylasar."

Evia says, "Phew."

Speaking softly to Leafiara, Wintersylph says, "Oh, Here comes Accidently on Purpose himself."

Pukk recites quietly:

"Everybody join Cryheart!"

Puptilian says, "It is only him."

Maags feeds a pale-faced coppery barn owl a bite of her powdered sugar donut.

Tzii exclaims, "Hopefully it's full on, straight into the middle of the landing invasion !"

Cryheart says, "I am moving to Moot Hall."

Speaking to a pale-faced coppery barn owl, Maags says, "Now yous will be white instead of copperies."

Cryheart says, "One...."

Cryheart says, "Two....."

Tzii says, "Haven't seen one of those in years... decades."

Cryheart says, "Three..moving."

Maags exclaims, "Camoflauge!"

Sir Cryheart's group just went east.

[Town Square, East]

Here in the center of a broad plaza near the commercial area of the bazaar stands the impressive facade of the slate-roofed Moot Hall, where the citizens of Wehnimer's Landing hold various official, religious and social functions. Facing the square are some of the town's more prosperous shops, still doing business with the many customers who still frequent the streets at night. You also see a pretty flower girl, a shield-shaped sign that reads, "A Landing Mayor FOR The Landing People! ~Vote Neopuron~", a giant mound of snow, a large purple wooden barrel and a bone-framed bulletin board.

Lycurgus softly asks, "What are we doing?"

Darcena says, "I will see if I can corner Madmountan into joining us, but you know how he is."

Speaking optimistically to Lycurgus, Leafiara says, "Waiting for Pylasar, maybe."

Tsarok quietly says, "I am sure I can talk Rob into going."

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Elphieya says, "Your words seem to hold extra importance tonight."

Spoetzel says, "I have had too much chocolate I think . . things look fuuny."

Speaking to Cryheart, Darcena says, "The world did not have enough of you in it."

(Falvicar glances between Cryheart and Cryheart.)

Cryheart says, "Cause the other one is false."

Claudaro says, "Which one is shiney-er? Join that one."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Wait...that wouldn't be fun!"

Evia exclaims, "The question is WILL YOU CHOOSE what is behind Cryheart Number one OR Cryheart Number TWO!"

Due Fate

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena complains, "I didn't get a fortune last time." [...when he was giving out fate tarts outside Moot Hall]

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "Don't let anyone drop me."

Pylasar says, "I'm going as Cryheart to Ebon Gate this year."

Pylasar shrugs.

Pylasar gawks at Darcena.

Darcena says, "You just made me deliver Maylan's."

Tzii asks, "Where'd the other Cryheart go?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "You would have won first prize at Cruxophim's Zelian Cotillion."

Diamondelille says, "Majik guy's kinda cute."

Speaking jokingly to Pylasar, Pukk says, "Remember to walk really slow."

Cryheart says, "It will be confusing when we both show up then."

Speaking to Cryheart, Evician says, "Just dont shake hands or anything."

Speaking to Cryheart, Evician says, "You never know where that Cryheart has been."

Speaking softly to Maags, Wintersylph says, "I take it you just becomes a familiar for Ebon's Gate."

Speaking to Lylia, Maags exclaims, "Yous shall has a baked bacon feast soon promise!"

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "What would've been funny is if one Cryheart commented about the other Cryheart owing him money..."

Falvicar quietly asks, "Wait a second.... if Pylasar disguised himself as Cryheart.... does that mean Cryheart has twice the chances to be picked by a merchant?"

Speaking to Wintersylph, Maags exclaims, "Nobodies is the boss of me!"

Maags says, "Well then again...."

Speaking quietly to Maags, Pukk asks, "You are going to bake Lylia into a bacon feast?"

Speaking to herself, Leafiara muses, "I should get people to disguise themselves as me..."

Maags says, "Nobodies is the boss of Owlies either."

Pylasar offers Darcena a tiny fate tart.

Diamondelille says, "Ahh ye aint so tuff."

Darcena accepts Pylasar's fate tart.

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "No, baked Lylia is not particularly a treat."

Elphieya quietly says, "Ah, tarts."

Yosaffbrig melodically exclaims, "Owlie for mayor!"

Darcena stares at her fate tart.

Darcena beams happily at Pylasar!

Cryheart says, "Oooh...the fate tarts."

Spoetzel asks, "Do we know that Cryheart wasn't always Pylasar?"

Maags exclaims, "Ohhh fates!"

Darcena takes a bite of her fate tart.

Darcena appears to be choking on something as she chews. She suddenly spits a piece of parchment out of her mouth and into her hand.

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk asks, "Too stringy?"

Thrassus says, "Oh, the fortune tarts again."

Tzii says, "The tarts of DOOM."

Speaking softly to Maags, Wintersylph asks, "Pylasar says he goes dressed up as Cryheart to da Festival, so da mages will bring his Familiar...tes?"

Pukk quietly says, "Good thinking."

Darcena recites:

"My fate tart

Tells me to

Scratch and

Sniff life."

Spoetzel asks, "Tart?"

Tzii exclaims, "Life smells like.... tarts !"

Darcena giggles.

Darcena takes a bite of her fate tart.

Claudaro says, "Scratch and sniff, stop short of marking."

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "I hope I get one of the tarts, this time."

Speaking to Darcena, Lylia says, "That seems entirely appropriate."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena approves, "I like it."

Maags exclaims, "Didnts finish!"

Pylasar shrugs.

Maags exclaims, "Scratch, sniff, gobble!"

Darcena sniffs at Maags.

Pylasar exclaims, "This rain is so predictable!"

Speaking to Maags, Darcena asks, "In that order?"

Maags says, "Er not me."

Speaking to Darcena, Evia says, "Told ya learning to read common was importink."

Pylasar exclaims, "It won't keep the land lush forever!"

Speaking to Evia, Darcena says, "Thankfully this held some of my favorite words."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Goldstr says, "Dern Sir Cryheart now gonna ferget wha time he in."

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "Storms roll in off the bay late at night. It is a familiar weather pattern."

Cryheart says, "Hmm..that is a point."

Speaking softly to Maags, Wintersylph says, "So if ya goes as da Familiar, Fatten dat ole Pylasar up on lots of Tarts, so maybes he flys in circles from now on."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Balley says, "The rain does allow people to wash if they do not like to bathe."

Pylasar says, "Gracie loved the rain."

Commander Roblar just went east.

Cryheart says, "Rain is good."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Elphieya says, "The purple lightning is more rare. Fate seems to cause the purple. Or tarts..."

Darcena yells, "Roblar! Hi!"

Puptilian says, "Its a season for lots of rain to allow Imaera's plants to grow. Nothing new."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "They don't call Cryheart the harbinger of doom for nothing you know."

Speaking quietly to Darcena, Tsarok says, "He gone."

Speaking to Wintersylph, Maags exclaims, "Lighting does not go in circles!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus says, "I suppose too much rain can drown the land, in a way."

Shinann asks, "Who is Gracie?"

Commander Roblar just arrived.

Tzii sings:

"I think it's gonna rain.....

when i dieeee"

Speaking to Pukk, Evician says, "We know that...we never did."

Tzii exclaims, "I just made up a song !"

Lylia says, "I rather like deserts. And swamps. Extremes, both of them, but stark and beautiful in their way."

Roblar deeply says, "Was alreadies ere."

Pukk quietly says, "Now we are in real trouble, Roblar is here too."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "We are doomed!"

Tzii says, "Maybe it'll rain tarts."

Xorus says, "In the bleaklands you get to have both desert and blood rain."

Speaking amusedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "No, Roblar showing up is a sign of salvation, not doom."

Speaking hopefully to Maags, Darcena asks, "I don't suppose you have any muffins?"

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara quips, "Just ask Ta'Vaalor."

Roblar ominously repeats, "Doomed."

Pylasar says, "But she was like her mother in that way."

Tzii says, "And the hobbits will multiply out of control."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph says, "Wow, dis many people didn't show up for the most recent elections, you must have one heck-of campaign promisses."


Refrain

Pylasar stares off for a moment in the distance.

Felita says, "Mebee it rains muffins."

Speaking to Xorus, Lylia says, "Ah, see? Having your cake and eating it too."

Pylasar says, "Oh! Your fortune tart."

Cryheart says, "Read it."

Pylasar offers Darcena a tiny fate tart.

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig asks, "So, where or when did you travel to this time?"

Maags says, "Mus be a shortage of boars."

Darcena accepts Pylasar's fate tart.

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena exclaims, "Oh! Another one!"

Pylasar says, "Travel? Oh I've been about town."

Darcena beams happily at Pylasar!

Cryheart says, "Be courageous."

Speaking earnestly to Darcena, Leafiara says, "Another one! You must have all kinds of fates tonight."

Pylasar says, "I'm not much of a traveler."

Speaking to Cryheart, Darcena whispers aloud, "I think he's losing track of time."

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "I would ask when, but...well."

Erlang asks, "Can ya pick the fate ya like best?"

Goldstr says, "Many Times."

Speaking quietly to Yosaffbrig, Elphieya says, "He's been the Cryheart we thought was Cryheart. The real question is where has Cryheart been."

Darcena takes a bite of her fate tart.

Darcena appears to be choking on something as she chews. She suddenly spits a piece of parchment out of her mouth and into her hand.

Speaking to Pylasar, Puptilian says, "Not all travel is measured in distance but instead in time."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "Well, it's been about a month or 2 since we saw you last. I must say... you make quite an entrance."

Cryheart says, "Only I know."

Tzii says, "Cryheart magically transported us here."

Darcena recites:

"Once again, I am to scratch and sniff life."

Spoetzel says, "There's not much beyond town. Places without snacks."

Maags says, "I think it would be wonderful to not has a schedule."

Spoetzel says, "That's it."

Erlang exclaims, "Well get to it then!"

Speaking lightly to Darcena, Leafiara speculates, "Maybe you didn't do it quickly enough the first time."

Maags says, "Rhet and Halline would go mad."

Darcena exclaims, "I get to scratch and sniff life twice!"

Speaking quietly to Darcena, Pukk says, "You can scratch and sniff me anytime you like."

Speaking to Darcena, Evia says, "Maybe it meant LEAF."

Evia points at Leafiara!

Tzii says, "Then the pretty flower girl kicked me in the shin."

Leafiara raises her hands toward Evia in surrender!

Darcena stares at Evia.

Darcena sniffs at Leafiara.

Speaking insistently to Evia, Leafiara says, "I didn't do it! Except for the good things."

Speaking melodically to Darcena, Yosaffbrig says, "Well... if you ever need somebody to scratch..."

Speaking to Tzii, Puptilian says, "Then maybe be a bit nicer to her."

Speaking sadly to Evia, Darcena says, "Leafi doesn't smell nearly as nice as I'd like."

Cryheart asks, "Well..if ye mocked her...dinnae ye deserve it?"

Leafiara tucks her chin slightly, juts out her lower lip, and pouts for all she's worth! She does her best to catch Darcena's eyes with a wide, limpid gaze.

Tzii asks, "And sniff?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Evician says, "Evia's harmless."


Falvimiliarity

Pylasar moves to stand in front of Falvicar.

Pylasar says, "You look so familiar."

Pylasar nods at Falvicar.

Speaking to Falvicar, Spoetzel exclaims, "Run!"

Speaking to Raelee, Darcena exclaims, "I don't even need snacks! I've had two fate tarts and a Maags tart!"

Speaking to Falvicar, Maags exclaims, "Maybes he can make yous a bacon!"

Falvicar quietly says, "I'm not afraid of anything."

Pylasar says, "You, but not you, it's hard to explain."

Falvicar folds his arms over his chest.

Falvicar quietly says, "Bacon is an improvement over a kobold."

Speaking to Maags, Evician says, "I need a bacon."

Pukk quietly says, "Once you have seen one human, you have seen them all."

Tzii says, "Wonder if we'll get some nice massive troll kings."

Speaking to Evician, Maags says, "I never can find it latelies."

Speaking fondly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "No, you're quite different from most humans I know."

Speaking melodically to Darcena, Yosaffbrig says, "Well... should you ever feel the need to go someplace a little quieter..."

Pylasar says, "Your face is a massive troll king."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "I am Pukk."

Speaking to Maags, Evician says, "Thats horrible."

Speaking to Yosaffbrig, Darcena says, "I'm on the hunt with someone right now, but perhaps in the future."

Tzii says, "My butt is a massive troll king."


Korafest the Sacrificer

Maags exclaims, "No drooling!"

Spoetzel says, "I think that means strong features."

Speaking lustily to Darcena, Yosaffbrig purrs, "I quiver with antici....pation..."

Maags says, "For once I am glad there is no awning."

Pylasar glances at Balley.

Cryheart asks, "Makes it easier to shower?"

Balley softly says, "Hello there."

Speaking musingly to Maags, Leafiara say, "Rain is kind of like the sky drooling..."

Balley smiles at Pylasar.

The voice of Falvicar quietly says, "I don't need to run."

Maags says, "Easier the drool does not drip this way."

Cryheart says, "Cold water."

Speaking to Leafiara, Spoetzel asks, "Is it hungry?"

Pukk recites quietly:

"Everybody smooch Pylasar!"

Pylasar says, "Korafest the sacrificer."

Balley softly asks, "The what?"

Pylasar says, "You look young still. Good for you."

Speaking to Darcena, Evician asks, "Evening ...sister?"

Pylasar says, "Keep washing your hands."

Tzii says, "I miss Omnirus."

Leafiara hums a cheerful tune! Pure white and bold red mana wisps dance about her like wind-borne leaves, then pulse brightly as she sings a sylvan phrase in a strong, clear voice.

Leafiara gestures at Balley.

Holy water sprays forth and cleanses Balley!

A large splash of water drenches Balley from head to toe!

Tzii says, "He used to be the best cleric picker in east tower."

Maags says, "I miss Waybert and Rozypants and Walkar."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Balley asks, "What do you mean the sacrificer?"

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph asks, "Whom?"

Pylasar blinks and glances around the area, looking rather confused.

Pylasar asks, "A what?"

Pylasar peers quizzically at Balley.

Speaking confusedly to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Are you alright? You seem a little odd tonight, even for you."

Speaking plaintively to Leafiara, Pukk asks, "He wants us to wash our hands??"

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "Maybe someday I'll be a healer/picker... That way, I can heal myself when I blow myself up."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "Yous onlies miss ribbon girl."

Evician says, "I wonder if my future self is a tyrannical dictator...."

Lylia says, "Everyone should indulge in more hand-washing on a regular basis."

Balley softly says, "Gulp."

Speaking to Evician, Maags says, "Or past."

Lylia pointedly says, "Some of you smell."

Pylasar exclaims, "I am quite fine!"

Balley softly says, "Well this does sound interesting."

Pylasar exclaims, "It is good to be back!"


Split

Evician says, "Or even present."

Tzii says, "I miss Ravenscar too."

Tzii says, "He was so hilarious."

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "It is good to see you back."

Cryheart says, "Welcome back."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Balley says, "Nice to see you again."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig asks, "Is it good to be front?"

Pylasar seems to be engaged in a small but quiet conversation with himself.

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "He did give me TWO fate tarts."

Maags rubs her cupcake signet, causing it to release the aroma of strawberry laced with vanilla into the air.

Speaking to Pylasar, Evician says, "Welcome home."

Maags says, "That should helps."

The voice of Falvicar quietly asks, "Where ye been?"

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara whispers aloud, "He's learning habits from you."

Evician says, "Quiet! Pylasar is seeking expert advice...shh."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk exclaims, "I would rather not wash my hands!"

Pylasar speaking to himself, "It was supposed to be Tamzzyr."

Tzii says, "Cryheart never was little."

Speaking coolly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "I can take care of that for you just like I did for Balley."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "I have them just clean enough to get away with it."

Roblar deeply asks, "Bleaklands?"

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Xorus says, "Interesting."

Pylasar speaking to himself, "But it's not, is it?"

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig asks, "Tamzz-who?"

Lylia quietly says, "No, it was not Tamzyrr after all."

Speaking to Yosaffbrig, Puptilian says, "Empire capital."

Cryheart asks, "Which of ye is correct?"

Balley softly says, "I am confused."

Pylasar says, "Left, right, still always forward."

Speaking to Xorus, Evician exclaims, "Dun...dun...DUNNNNN!!!"

Speaking melodically to Puptilian, Yosaffbrig says, "Ah... I tend to avoid the empire...."

Speaking to Pylasar, Evician asks, "Did you try up down up down?"

Spoetzel says, "Hope you are pointed in the right direction."

Lylia explains, "I am presuming he means Chaston Griffin's attempt to destroy Tamzyrr. I may, of course, presume incorrectly."

Speaking melodically to Evician, Yosaffbrig asks, "Left, right, left, right... Or was it a left at Zul Logoth?"

Leafiara muses, "Pylasar did save many of us who are standing here--that night in Talador."

Pylasar says, "Gold then black."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Pylasar says, "Gold before black."

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus asks, "It was Talador instead, yes?"

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "That is my guess."

Pylasar says, "Forward not back."

Cryheart says, "Chaston."

Cryheart says, "The golden one."

Tarine sadly says, "Oh, I do hate riddles."

Speaking to Pylasar, Shinann asks, "Are you able to move forward?"

Bbee asks, "What's going on?"

Pylasar leans forward.

Pylasar says, "Yes."

Speaking to Bbee, Pietra says, "Nobody knows."

Shinann says, "I see."

Maags says, "If yous go back though yous can fix things."

Speaking to Shinann, Darcena says, "I thought he couldn't move any more forward."

Lylia says, "If any of you are unfamiliar with the goings-on then, we could talk a bit about that later. But 'later' is a rather...fluid concept for our Councilman here."

Darcena asks, "Isn't that what he said last time?"

Maags says, "And has a third dinner."

Pylasar exclaims, "Mayor Neopuron!"

Pylasar moves to stand in front of Neopuron.

Leafiara pragmatically says, "In a sense we're all moving forward in time."

Neopuron grins at Pylasar.

Speaking to Maags, Evician says, "Or fourth breakfast."

Cryheart says, "No..Mayor Lylia."

Speaking melodically to Leafiara, Yosaffbrig says, "Unless you don't follow linear time."

Pylasar exclaims, "Hello to you! Congratulations! 5121 never looked so good!"

Speaking quietly to Pylasar, Elphieya says, "I believe you missed the resutls of the election."

Speaking to Pylasar, Neopuron says, "Not just yet."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "No no, we're still in 5119."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "5119, friend."

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr says, "Wrong timeline Mage."

Cryheart says, "Wrong time, Pylasar."

Pylasar says, "Oh."

Speaking to Neopuron, Darcena asks, "Maybe you run again?"

Pylasar says, "Awkward."

Speaking to Pylasar, Spoetzel asks, "So this is as good as 5121 is going to look?"

Pylasar whistles tunelessly to himself.

Speaking to Darcena, Neopuron says, "Maybe."

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "Thank you for putting the people's minds at ease that they will not, in fact, see a thousand-year Rashere reign."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "I'm sure Lylia wants to take off a limb right now."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "I wonder who's mayor in 5121..."

Maags says, "Problies Captain Shinann will be the next Mayor."

Spoetzel says, "Doesn't seem like a good couple years."

Pylasar says, "Not here at least."

Pylasar winks at Lylia.

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena asks, "What if we want one?"

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig exclaims, "Oh... PLEASE tell me it's Owly!"

Lylia notes, "...not yet, at least."

Evician says, "Thousand year Owly reign? That can't be good."

Speaking perplexedly to Evician, Leafiara asks, "How would that -not- be good?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Bbee asks, "Hope you don't mind me saying, I think you missed your pill today?"

Bbee offers Pylasar a faceted dark sapphire pill.

Pylasar accepts Bbee's dark sapphire pill.

Speaking to Darcena, Lylia says, "I would find that most agreeable myself."

Speaking to Evician, Goldstr exclaims, "Might even be best!"

Pylasar lets out a cheer!

Pylasar places his dark sapphire pill in his mouth, and it dissolves into a puff of cerulean smoke. A blue mist seeps from his lips as a cloud of mana coalesces around him, wrapping him in protective magic!

Bbee smiles.

Pylasar exclaims, "Delicious!"

Lylia murmurs, "But of course, we must observe the laws of the land."

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel asks, "Hungry?"

Maylan whines, "I want one."

Speaking quietly to Spoetzel, Elphieya asks, "A little I suppose. Why?"

Bbee exclaims, "Awesome, he trusted me!"

Cryheart says, "Law is law."

Speaking to Maylan, Maags exclaims, "This is better!"

Maags offers Maylan a golden brown ginger tart.

Yosaffbrig offers Pylasar a mint and dark chocolate bar.

Pylasar rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Pylasar accepts Yosaffbrig's dark chocolate bar.

Pylasar takes a bite of his dark chocolate bar.

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "Somebody gave me a snack."

Felita says, "The look."

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena asks, "But you would surely build me a special rolton pen, yes?"

Pylasar says, "Gracie's favorite."

Speaking quietly to Spoetzel, Elphieya says, "I gave that to you."

Pylasar takes a bite of his dark chocolate bar.

Speaking to Cryheart, Lylia says, "Yes. Laws, including those against arson."

Maags says, "Who is Gracie."

Pylasar asks, "Who?"

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "I . . knew . . it's still good."

Pylasar shrugs.

Diamondelille asks, "Is Gracie yer lady?"

Pylasar says, "A hollow sorcerer.."

Pylasar asks, "Isn't that a bit repetitive?"

Pylasar ducks his head.

Pylasar ducks his head.

You notice Pylasar slip into a hiding place.

Neopuron asks, "Like empty?"

Goldstr says, "G'nite Gracie."

Bbee asks, "Hollow?"

Pylasar comes out of hiding.

Pylasar snickers.

Diamondelille says, "Ahh."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "That's why you fill them with peanut butter, silly."

Pylasar says, "I kid I kid."

Xorus says, "It is a hallowed art."

Bbee asks, "Hallowed or hollowed that is the question?"

Speaking to Bbee, Lylia says, "Yes."

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "You did not give this to me."

Pylasar whispers to himself, "Gold then black, gold then black, gold then bleak."

Felita asks, "Kinnit be both?"

Pylasar says, "So that's why."

Pylasar leans forward.

Pylasar leans back.

Cryheart says, "Indeed."

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr asks, "Den Bleak?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Shinann asks, "Who are you talking to?"

Cryheart says, "Talador and the Bleaklands."

Pylasar asks, "Huh?"

Lylia asks, "And has the gold then followed the black yet again?"

Pylasar tickles Shinann.

Speaking optimistically to herself, Tarine muses, "Better these riddles than that Mist Manor, I guess."

Speaking to Pylasar, Maags says, "Is somebodies whispering in yous ears."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig asks, "So... would you be able to take a lady with you as you travel through time?"

Speaking to Tarine, Lylia says, "I rather enjoyed my time in Mist Manor."

Tarazota softly says, "Gold followed black, then it got bleak."

Evician asks, "Who's whispering in his ear?"

Pylasar asks, "Time travel?"

Tarine ruefully admits, "It really hurt my head."

Pylasar peers quizzically at Yosaffbrig.

Avalera mutters, "So hard to follow."

Pylasar says, "That is absurd."

Pylasar says, "The stuff of fairy tales. Like...unicorns and skilled bards."

Pylasar ducks his head.

Pylasar ducks his head.

You notice Pylasar slip into a hiding place.

Pylasar comes out of hiding.

Lylia explains, "We had a party there. Usually, parties end the next morning with headaches instead of beginning with them."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "Well, you're the one thinking it's 2 years in the future from now, Mr. I-Don't-Travel-Through-Time-Yet-Obviously-Do."

Maylan exclaims, "Oh, hide and seek!"

Elphieya quietly asks, "Why are they trying to hide?"

Spoetzel says, "That is one of my favorite spots to hide."

Speaking suddenly to Lylia, Tarine says, "Oh! Maybe -that- was my problem... it was all turned about! Yes."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena asks, "Well, I've only seen you sing at something once, so maybe he's right?"


Father's Eyes

Pylasar exclaims, "THAT'S IT!"

Pylasar points at Falvicar.

Pylasar says, "You have your father's eyes."

Wintersylph softly asks, "Do you speak of the Talador Mines, of the Jantalaren invaision, where da Dwarves were all kilt in dem mines? Gold to black, gold to black, gold to Bleak?"

Pylasar says, "That's where I've seen it."

Pylasar nods at Falvicar.

Pylasar says, "I knew I Knew you."

>look falv

You see Falvicar Jalcon the Blade of the Night.

He appears to be a Sylvankind of the Tyesteron D'ahranal.

He is average height. He appears to be young. He has ether blue eyes and golden brown skin. He has long, sleek black hair peppered with silvery stars and tied back with a silver sword-shaped clasp. He has a delicate face, a classical nose and slightly pointed ears. He is wearing a silver and white silk standard emblazoned with a black sword that juts over his shoulder.

Pylasar says, "Knew you knew you."

Speaking melodically to Falvicar, Yosaffbrig says, "You should put them back in your father's body..."

Pylasar shrugs at Wintersylph.

Puptilian says, "Chaston's eyes were gold."

Pylasar asks, "Gold to black?"

Puptilian says, "At one point."

Pylasar says, "That makes no sense."

Evia says, "New you, new you."

Pylasar says, "You're crazy."

Pylasar nods at Wintersylph.

Bbee asks, "If you take a cobbb of corn and eat all the kernels bbbut one, don't you have a unicorn?"

Speaking quietly to Pylasar, Pukk says, "Why yes, yes I am."

Aeith asks, "Are these conversations always this strange?"

Katami comments, "Of all the people to tallk about making no sense."

Maags says, "Kobolds has black eyes."

Speaking confusedly to Pylasar, Falvicar asks, "You know my father?"

Speaking to Aeith, Lylia says, "Generally, yes."

Pylasar tickles Aeith.

Pylasar peers quizzically at Falvicar.

Pylasar says, "No."

Evia says, "Strange, I did not have this headache when I arrived here."

Speaking to Aeith, Lylia says, "You can imagine what Town Council meetings are like."

Pylasar exclaims, "How old do you think I am!"

Pylasar scoffs.

Speaking quietly to Zaneon, Elphieya says, "Thank you."

Felita says, "Infinity."

Speaking melodically to Falvicar, Yosaffbrig says, "But... your eyes are blue..."

Speaking quietly to Evia, Pukk says, "It's me, I do it to you everytime."

Falvicar quietly exclaims, "That's a loaded question!"


Going Fishing

Pylasar exclaims, "Let's go fishing!"

Speaking abruptly to Pylasar, Darcena announces, "I like you."

Maylan excitedly exclaims, "Okay!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena exclaims, "Let's go slaughter!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus asks, "Where?"

Leafiara says, "Just the words Beldannon would want to hear."

Pylasar shrugs.

Neopuron exclaims, "Someone get the worms!"

Felita says, "Lets hunt."

Pylasar exclaims, "The docks!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr asks, "Master Mage Councilman Do ya knows wha time ye are in?"

Pukk quietly exclaims, "We can use gnomes as bait!"

Darcena exclaims, "Moonshine Manor has a pond!"

Maylan exclaims, "Fishing fishing fishing we go!"

Bbee says, "Older than your teeth and younger than your gums."

Pylasar says, "We could sit there. At the docks. On the bay."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maylan exclaims, "Mush!"

Cryheart says, "Well...to the docks we shall go."

Speaking to Pylasar, Evician says, "Watching time."

Cryheart says, "One...."

Speaking to Pylasar, Neopuron says, "Bigger fish in the bay."

Pukk quietly says, "Told you, you should have joined Cryheart earlier."

Cryheart says, "Two....."

Evia says, "See, you tried to avoid the CryBLOB and FAILED."

Tarazota softly says, "Not a day over 500."

Cryheart says, "Moving."

[travel]

[Wehnimer's, North Dock]

The dock's planks are dull and weathered from the salt spray of many seasons. Northward beyond the massive sea gates, a flock of ice geese passes, silhouetted against the sky over the dark blue waters of Darkstone Bay. The hulk of a derelict coastal sailer is tethered to the end of the pier. You also see a spotted great horned owl, a huge grey imperial warship, some large imperial ships, some stacked piles of supplies, some huge wooden crates, a stack of empty crates, the dark waters of Darkstone Bay and a black imperial wagon with a glowing blue-white pylon on it.

Maags says, "Fishing for Krolvin? they are easier to catch than trouts."

Speaking to Cryheart, Chaoswynd says, "Bit slow old man."

Pylasar says, "Hmm."

Pylasar asks, "Middle dock?"

[travel]

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Pukk says, "You actually walked fast..."

[Wehnimer's, Middle Dock]

Laboring dockworkers and strolling seamen mingle here on the weathered planks of the dock, between the hulls of large seafaring merchantmen. The groan of ships pulling at hawsers, the clatter of feet upon gangplanks, and the swearing of the dockworkers mix with the cries of seabirds and the cadence of waves against the pilings. You also see a spotted great horned owl, some large imperial ships, some large imperial ships, some huge wooden crates, some huge wooden crates, some stacked piles of supplies and a black imperial wagon with a glowing blue-white pylon on it.

Lylia says, "Not so easy anymore, Lady Maags. Fewer of them about these days."

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Pukk exclaims, "You're not the real Cryheart!"

Speaking to Chaoswynd, Evician says, "Pot, meet kettle."

Goldstr says, "And I happen to have me fishin gear."

Speaking teasingly to Cryheart, Chaoswynd says, "Still a bit slow."

Maylan says, "So many ships..."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "He's the imposter!"

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Get him!"

Speaking to Lylia, Maags exclaims, "Because of yous defenses!"

Pukk hurls himself at Cryheart!

Pukk flies a bit wide and lands in a heap on the ground.

Pylasar says, "Hmm..."

Speaking to Chaoswynd, Darcena asks, "Have you ever tried to fit this many people in small alleys?"

Tzii exclaims, "It's a spirit invasion !"

Lylia asks, "Sometimes the best defense is annihilation. I think that is how the phrase goes in Common?"

Speaking to Darcena, Chaoswynd says, "Can't say that I have. I would assume a lot of shoving and yelling is involved."

Speaking to Lylia, Raelee says, "Not typically."

Speaking to Pietra, Darcena exclaims, "Always Pie-pared!"

Speaking sagely to Chaoswynd, Darcena says, "And elbowing."

Speaking to Lylia, Melikor says, "I think that's it exactly, yes."

Speaking quietly to Lycurgus, Pukk says, "Okay, we are using you for bait."

Pylasar snaps his fingers and a fishing rod appears in his hands.

Darcena exclaims, "Let's catch a krolvin!"

Darcena says, "My blood is starting to dry."

Pukk snaps his fingers.

Pukk glares.

Pukk quietly says, "That snapping doesn't work for me."

Tzii exclaims, "Fish invasion !"

Pylasar leans back and lets the line of his purple fishing rod go with a sharp *WHOOSH!*, the diaper-shaped lure flying through the air before landing with a soft *plink* a good distance from the dock.

Speaking to Tsarok, Darcena purrs, "You are perfect in almost every way."

Speaking to Tsarok, Darcena says, "A little short and a little thin and a little someone else's."

Tsarok preens and gives himself a quick once-over, then strikes a pose that is perhaps supposed to be impressive.

Speaking to Tsarok, Darcena says, "But almost."

Speaking melodically to Darcena, Yosaffbrig says, "If only he were a woman..."

Maags says, "I jus cannot think of one good thing about fishing."

Pylasar waves his glowing fishing rod around, its purple light streaking back and forth.

Roblar leans back and lets the line of his limb fishing rod go with a sharp *WHOOSH!*, the translucent crab flying through the air before landing with a soft *plink* a good distance from the dock.

Pylasar says, "Roblar has crabs.."

Speaking to Maags, Darcena says, "Refreshments."

Bbee says, "You're all talking over my head, so please sit down."

Pylasar says, "...for bait."

Cryheart asks, "To catch and eat a fish?"

Maags says, "Slimy worms, slimy fish, stinky and unsweet."

Pukk quietly says, "I figured as much."

Speaking amusedly to Pylasar, Chaoswynd says, "Matches your diaper lure then."

Speaking quietly to Pylasar, Falvicar says, "Hmm... you're... what? 50 or so years old? But on the other hand, you keep poofing to and fro like a cheap candle so you could be any age... especially since you somehow know my dad's eye color. I don't even know him."

Maylan says, "Pegleg bait."

Pylasar says, "You will."

Speaking to Maags, Darcena says, "Not very good to eat at all. No bloody goodness."

Roblar deeply says, "More nonsense, for sure."

Pylasar snickers at Tsarok.

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking melodically to Falvicar, Yosaffbrig says, "And said your eyes look like his... golden... yet your eyes are blue."

Pylasar says, "Here fishy fishy fishy."

Pukk quietly says, "His body is here, but his brain is somewhere else."

Speaking to Pylasar, Neopuron asks, "Does that really work?"

Bbee asks, "Why are we calling fish?"

Speaking quietly to Bbee, Elphieya asks, "Why not?"

Cryheart says, "He wants to fish perhaps."

Pietra exclaims, "Somebody's got to! Might as well be most of us!"

Bbee says, "Seems an odd thing to do."

Pylasar looks down at the water, his old reflection rippling on the surface. For a brief moment, he appears young again, almost handsome, then he appears old once more.

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

A forest wolf bares his teeth hungrily at Spoetzel!

Speaking quietly to a forest wolf, Elphieya says, "You're scaring the hobbit."

Pylasar gawks at Darcena.

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena asks, "So you like fishing?"

Speaking to Goldstr, Avalera says, "You really seem to know what you're doing there."

Pylasar says, "Not really."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena asks, "So why did you want to go fishing then?"

Spoetzel says, "While you're fishing in there . . I lost a boat. If you happen to catch it please let me know."

Leafiara cryptically speculates, "Maybe he's foreseen that we have to catch a fish right now or something terrible will happen."

Pylasar exclaims, "I didn't. I just followed you all!"

Pukk quietly says, "Nobody likes fishing, they do it because people keep asking them if they like fishing."

Leafiara amusedly says, "...or not."

Speaking quietly to Spoetzel, Elphieya asks, "A boat?"

Speaking to Pukk, Pietra says, "Wrong. I love fishing."

Thrassus asks, "Perhaps he's fishing for that pyramid in the Bay?"

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "Next time I say we go slaughter things."

Tzii says, "Those wickedly curved falchions came from a boat."

Speaking quietly to Pietra, Pukk says, "You poor thing, you really think that. You will see.."

Pylasar frowns at Darcena.

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "It's a long story that ends in me missing a boat. It's very sad."

Roblar deeply muses, "Maybe ah will catch a purple whale."

Pylasar says, "There is plenty of time soon for that."

Speaking to Pukk, Pietra says, "No, I really do."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena asks, "A warcamp?"

Speaking quietly to Pietra, Pukk says, "You just don't know it yet that you don't like it."

Speaking softly to Cryheart, Wintersylph says, "I have learned over da years, dat when Pylasar want a De-Bait...he takes us fishing."

Pylasar says, "More than you will want."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "There is never more than I want."

Speaking mischievously to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Oh, it's never more than I want."

Claudaro says, "There is no such thing as more slaughter than one may want, the desire for slaughter is endless."

Yosaffbrig rubs Leafiara gently.

(Maylan watches a small fish nibble on her mop-fringed pegleg. She quickly jerks her leg upright, but the small fish escapes to live another day!)

Maylan says, "Drat."

Leafiara leans on Yosaffbrig, giving her a companionable grin.

Maags says, "Spirit please catch me a shark."

Speaking to Angellos, Lylia says, "I remember such memorials."

Speaking lustily to Leafiara, Yosaffbrig purrs, "You smell... mmm... delicious..."

Maags points at an erratic aurora spirit.

Speaking to Maags, Shinann asks, "What will you do with that?"

Maags says, "Was talking to him."

Shinann asks, "A shark?"

Speaking to Shinann, Maags exclaims, "Win!"

Shinann says, "Ahh."

Zaneon sings:

"With a night-time tale, we will make a star light wish, to catch all the fish, and drink all the ale."

Maags says, "Maybes we are fishing for treasures."

Angellos says, "Maags is saying a shark is an automatic treasure win."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Maybe we can use the pylon to shoot the water and get a lot of fish at once!"

Cryheart says, "Fish tarts."

Tzii says, "Eww."

Speaking to Avalera, Goldstr says, "Me bait was fer fresh water."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph asks, "Maybes you need to Troll to have better luck?"

Speaking melodically to Cryheart, Yosaffbrig says, "That sounds... disgusting..."

Lylia says, "I do not think we are after fish."

Felita says, "Oo I like trasures."

Speaking to Maags, Evia exclaims, "Catch a whale..maybe it will swallow the Mage!"

Speaking to Evia, Maags exclaims, "Or all of us!"

Speaking to Lylia, Spoetzel says, "A boat at the moment."

Speaking curiously to Pylasar, Darcena asks, "Do you think you can sign, with a flourish, on my fate parchment?"

Darcena waves a piece of parchment around.


==

Pylasar says, "He's going to find her."

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "Well... I'm always fond of being eaten..."

Tzii exclaims, "Something fishy is goin on 'ere!"

Pylasar says, "But he probably shouldn't."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Cryheart asks, "Find whom?"

Xorus asks, "Thadston?"

Bbee asks, "Are you sure there are fish in this water?"

Thrassus asks, "Who?"

Puptilian says, "Thadston finding Raelee."

Puptilian snickers.

Bbee asks, "Are you sure there are fish in this water?"

Pylasar says, "No, not Raelee. Not yet."

Puptilian says, "Raznel."

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus asks, "Why shouldn't he?"

Maags says, "Magister is easies to find. Jus feed Owlies."

Cryheart asks, "Casiphia?"

Speaking quietly to Bbee, Elphieya says, "Probably not. But it's relaxing just the same."

Pylasar says, "Naimorai."

Cryheart says, "Ahhh."

Speaking quietly to Bbee, Elphieya says, "And who knows..."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Goldstr asks, "Cassie nae wid Thadston?"

Balley softly asks, "Do you think she will be found?"

Pukk quietly says, "Woah, that is a bad word around here."

Tarazota softly says, "These a chance."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Pylasar reels his purple fishing rod in completely, the diaper-shaped lure strung on the line becoming visible as it breaks the surface and dangles briefly over the water.

Pylasar frowns at a glowing purple fishing rod.

Speaking flatly to Puptilian, Raelee says, "Thadston knows where to find me. I have been waiting."

Pylasar leans back and lets the line of his purple fishing rod go with a sharp *WHOOSH!*, the diaper-shaped lure flying through the air before landing with a soft *plink* quite a large distance away from the dock.

Evia says, "Now you can observe why people go hungry rather than fish, it takes an hour or two to catch just one."

Speaking to Evia, Maylan says, "Flax is easier."

Speaking to Evia, Darcena agrees, "Easier to go kill a rolton."

Bbee says, "Here, use a pill for bbait."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking quietly to Evia, Pukk says, "Not if they use Maags for bait."

Speaking to Evia, Avalera says, "I'll take my rolton on a spit any day over fishing."

Speaking melodically to Maylan, Yosaffbrig says, "There are PLENTY of easy people... if you look in the right places..."

Speaking quietly to Evia, Elphieya says, "Not many fish to eat. They fish to feel the water and to chase that ellusive tug."

Pylasar says, "Maybe it isn't time."

Speaking to Pylasar, Spoetzel says, "I think you caught a diaper out there."

Pylasar says, "Maybe it isn't time yet."

Claudaro says, "A rain of meteors into the water tends to help one find the fish easier, they just come right to the surface."

Speaking to Pukk, Maags exclaims, "If I was bait yous all would starve!"

Pylasar says, "So maybe he shouldn't."

Speaking to Claudaro, Cabal says, "I can help out with that."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Pylasar says, "Maybe he should keep fishing."

Darcena curiously says, "I thought those were all in the Manor pond."

Spert says to Yakushi, "You, sir, are an impertinent minotaur-tickler!"

Xorus asks, "Has it not been long enough?"

Speaking abruptly to Pylasar, Raelee asks, "What is it time for, then? Why are you here tonight, Pylasar?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus says, "Maybe he should."

Speaking to Pylasar, Leafiara asks, "But he won't keep fishing... will he?"

Speaking to Darcena, Spoetzel asks, "Maybe he brought it with him?"

Pylasar says, "Be careful what you wish for Peter."

Pylasar chuckles.

Cryheart says, "So he is fishing or searching for her."

Balley softly says, "Maybe the fishies ate have some secret to hide."

Pylasar says, "She'd always say."

Pylasar says, "Playfully, at first."

Pylasar shakes his head.

Speaking squeakily to Maags, Spert says, "I needs tart."

Pylasar stares dreamily into the waters for a momet.

Pylasar stares dreamily into the waters for a moment.

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Spert, Maags says, "Tries my new recipe."

Maags offers Spert a sugar-glazed cupcake frosted with cherry dragons.

Spert accepts Maags's sugar-glazed cupcake.

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia asks, "And were you careful what you wished for?"

Spert squeakily says, "Its not a tart."

Pylasar chuckles.

Pylasar says, "Once."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena asks, "Of course not! Who is careful in what they wish for?"

Lylia smiles at Pylasar.

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr asks, "Peter wha ye want?"

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph asks, "What kernal of Truth does da Kestral have that would cause this searching to take place, what is it that is useful for us, or harmful to us, that she might have knowledge of?"

Pylasar says, "She knows it all."

Cryheart asks, "Naimorai?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Shinann asks, "Who knows it all?"

Goldstr asks, "Naimorai/ Raznel?"

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Speaking to Shinann, Maags says, "Yous do of course."

Speaking to Maags, Shinann says, "I think not."

Pylasar says, "He shouldn't go. You shouldn't go with him."

Maags says, "Well and Magister Raelee."

Pukk [over the amunet]: "Pylasar just proclaimed that Shinann knows it all! You heard it here first!"

Roblar deeply exclaims, "So we will!"

Cryheart asks, "We should nae go with Thadston?"

Roblar deeply says, "Am goin."

Speaking squeakily to Maags, Spert says, "Give the darkie one."

Pylasar says, "It isn't time. It isn't right."

Cryheart asks, "Seeking in Talador?"

Pylasar says, "It should have been Tamzzyr."

Speaking mischievously to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "I rarely listen to safe advice and even more rarely like getting it."

Pylasar says, "But it isn't."

Speaking to Spert, Maags exclaims, "On onlies if he asks me nicelies!"

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Puptilian asks, "What would have happen if it was the capital?"

Xorus asks, "The time is out of joint?"

Speaking melodically to Leafiara, Yosaffbrig says, "I knew there were reasons I liked you."

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph asks, "So da "it" you refer to is the stuff we don't know about her dad, and his real reason for coming to the outpost, is that what you manifest wid this information?"

Speaking squeakily to Yakushi, Spert says, "Midget is making tarts."

Speaking to Yosaffbrig, Leafiara explain, "I spent months upset with Archales for telling me to stay off the battlefield in the fight against Chaston."

Pylasar peers quizzically at Wintersylph.

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Spoetzel says, "Plenty of water out there."

Speaking squeakily to Maags, Spert exclaims, "I'm way taller then you!"

Speaking melodically to Chamorr, Yosaffbrig asks, "If I strip first, will you fondle my armor for me?"

Speaking softly to Pylasar, Wintersylph asks, "Does it revolve around da Golems dat Stone just came and stole?"

Speaking resignedly to Maags, Maylan says, "I don't think fish like moplegs as bait. I haven't caught a thing."

Chamorr heartily says, "Sure."

Spert squeakily says, "Fish like tarts."

Speaking to Maylan, Maags says, "I think yous the luckiest then."

Maylan asks, "They like tarts, do they?"

Speaking to Yakushi, Maags exclaims, "My favorite!"

Angellos says, "Depends on what type of fish ya trying to catch, but normally they accept tarts as tribute."

Speaking to Maylan, Maags says, "If we fish with tarts they will take over the town."

Speaking squeakily to Yakushi, Spert asks, "What if Hoy finds out you're eating Maags tarts?"

Speaking quietly to Angellos, Pukk exclaims, "Then they would love halflings, they are mostly made up of tarts!"

Speaking to Spert, Maags says, "I save the best ones for him."

Pylasar takes in some of the slack from his purple fishing rod.

Pylasar reels his purple fishing rod in completely, the diaper-shaped lure strung on the line becoming visible as it breaks the surface and dangles briefly over the water.

Balley softly says, "I need to go home and get some beauty sleep. It was nice to see you again Pylasar. Ihope you catch a big fish."

Pylasar leans back and lets the line of his purple fishing rod go with a sharp *WHOOSH!*, the diaper-shaped lure flying through the air before landing with a soft *plink* quite a large distance away from the dock.

Maylan exclaims, "Fish bait!"

Speaking melodically to Maags, Yosaffbrig says, "Possibly a duck."

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr says, "Yer luck fer fish dis eve bad as mine."

Speaking to Maags, Darcena asks, "Maybe both?"

Lylia murmurs, "I doubt it is time to catch a witch yet."

Evia says, "Or fishwich."

Elphieya quietly says, "Or a boat."

Spoetzel says, "That diaper was just skimming along the water."

Speaking to Pylasar, Maags exclaims, "Because there are no ponies in there!"

Speaking to Darcena, Chaoswynd says, "Caught one."

Darcena groans at Chaoswynd.

Pukk quietly asks, "Which witch are we going to catch with which bait?"

Speaking to Bbee, Maylan asks, "You want me to feed this to the fish?"

Speaking plaintively to Chaoswynd, Darcena says, "That was awful."

Speaking to Chamorr, Maags says, "Has yous ever seen one."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "Surrrre lotsa times."

Speaking to Bbee, Maylan says, "It floats, I spose."

Xorus asks, "Do you suppose she knew it would not be Tamzyrr?"

Xorus says, "Perhaps it still can be."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "Hard to put saddles on em though."

Pylasar says, "I helped her hide some of them once, but I can't even remember."

Speaking to Maylan, Evia says, "It all floats down here."

Maylan says, "And now the fish are enticed with a tingle pill and a ginger tart, surely this will bring them out to play."

Falvicar quietly says, "Otherwise you're just torturing it."

Darcena says, "My lessons have been paying off."

Spoetzel exclaims, "Breath!"

Speaking confidentially to Chaoswynd, Leafiara whispers aloud, "I think he knows even less about fishing than I did this time last year."

Elphieya quietly says, "We either need to kill it or put it back in the water. Leaving it to suffocate is cruel."

Thrassus says, "I can cook it right now."


Sculpins

Roblar picks up a mottled scorpion sculpin.

Spoetzel exclaims, "Breath!"

Roblar cuts into the scorpion sculpin's flesh and after a few deft strokes produces a fine raw scorpion sculpin.

Pylasar exclaims, "NO!!!"

Roblar deeply says, "Der."

Pylasar stands up.

Felita says, "Ye kin put it in my fishbowl."

Pylasar hurls himself at Roblar!

Pylasar flies a bit wide and lands in a heap on the ground.

Roblar smiles quietly to himself.

Momentarily revealing the small leather ankle sheath hidden at his ankle, Roblar deftly sheathes his alloy hunting knife, concealing both it and the sheath once more.

Roblar deeply says, "People are hungries."

Speaking quietly to Darcena, Pukk says, "You have to put a little more swing in that strut."

Pylasar exclaims, "You cut Scul-cracker!"

Pukk quietly says, "Like so."

Roblar offers Pylasar a chunk of raw scorpion sculpin.

Tzii exclaims, "We demand fish !"

Pylasar declines Roblar's offer.

Pylasar turns away from Roblar, ignoring him.

Pylasar says, "You are dead to me."

Speaking deeply to his raw scorpion sculpin, Roblar says, "Now you will do guud and not suffer."

Pylasar says, "Soblar."

Pylasar stands up.

Claudaro says, "Ignore Roblar at one's own peril."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "You'll come to... Well. You'll forget, I'm sure."

Lylia notes, "So is the sculpin."

Felita says, "I likes fishies."

Evia says, "This is just sad."

Speaking quietly to Roblar, Pukk says, "You are dead to him, sorry. Those are the lucks."

Roblar deeply asks, "Not red enuff?"

Darcena says, "Not red enough."

Speaking to his black toy pixie, Spoetzel says, "Don't look."

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

Roblar gestures at a chunk of raw scorpion sculpin.

Roblar launched a flare at a chunk of raw scorpion sculpin!

The raw scorpion sculpin grows warm to the touch then quickly cools off.

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr says, "Roblar was jess tryin ta help ya."

Pylasar exclaims, "Behold!"

Pylasar exclaims, "From this day forward!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "There are plenty of fish in the bay."

Pylasar exclaims, "For a brief amount of time!"

Speaking to Darcena, Neopuron says, "You might like it, its like steak; only different."

Speaking to herself, Darcena mutters, "He coulda warned me."

Pylasar exclaims, "Roblar the Slayer of Sculpins!"

Falvicar quietly says, "That's not fair."

Slayer of Sculpins Roblar just arrived.

Roblar deeply says, "Dis how you cooks."

Katami pinches herself hard.

Katami wryly says, "...yep. This is real."

Falvicar quietly says, "You're the one that brought up out of the water. He simply put it out of its misery and is enjoying a good meal from it at least."

Speaking heartily to Roblar, Chamorr says, "Oh mighty slayer."

Xorus says, "We will have to consider the ex-sculpatory evidence before judging too harshly."

Pylasar offers Roblar a tiny fate tart.

Speaking tenderly to his scorpion sculpin, Roblar asks, "See, we are famous now?"

Maags says, "Renpaw would be proud of yous."

Roblar accepts Pylasar's fate tart.

Roblar smiles at Pylasar.

Roblar takes a bite of his fate tart.

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena says, "This should be good."

Roblar takes a bite of his fate tart.

Roblar appears to be choking on something as he chews. He suddenly spits a piece of parchment out of his mouth and onto the ground.

Roblar glances at a piece of parchment.

Roblar gobbles down his fate tart in one enormous bite.

Roblar smirks at a piece of parchment.

Roblar picks up a piece of parchment.

Roblar tucks a piece of parchment into a weathered black leather pocket inside of his bear hide greatcloak.

Roblar whistles tunelessly to himself.

Cryheart says, "Read it."

Speaking to Roblar, Pietra exclaims, "What's it say!"

Tarine urges, "You have to tell us!"

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena exclaims, "I can't take this anticipation!"

Roblar grabs a piece of parchment from a weathered black leather pocket inside of his bear hide greatcloak.

Roblar carefully places a piece of parchment on the ground.

>read parch

You peer at the parchment and see that it reads:

You will slay a sculpin and anger a purple god.

Cryheart says, "Funny."

Roblar deeply says, "Shud av eaten dat earlier."

Pukk quietly says, "What does it say, I can't read that well."

Speaking to herself, Darcena mutters, "S-ss-uuu..."

Evia says, "PEW."

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara quotes, "You will slay a sculpin and anger a purple god."

Avalera says, "Eww."

Speaking softly to Roblar, Wintersylph says, "Dis a step down from slaying da Mule Qweeny, don't ya think, little fishy poo, I thinks you should have title for dem sacrifices, but this little catch of Pylasar?"

Speaking hurriedly to Pukk, Leafiara clarifies, "Not you you, but Roblar you."

Roblar deeply says, "Everythin must die."

Pylasar frowns.

Roblar deeply says, "Even gods."

Speaking quietly to Roblar, Pukk says, "Tough to be you."

Pylasar rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena says, "That was a good one."

Maags says, "At least the fish smell is gone."

Pukk quietly asks, "What god is purple?"

Evia says, "Ceviche would require minor acid spell."

Maags says, "Until he gets the stomach ache."

Speaking to Pukk, Darcena says, "It's funny because Pylasar thinks he's a god."

Speaking quietly to Darcena, Pukk says, "He might be."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig says, "You don't LOOK like a god to me..."

Bbee asks, "Ceviche?"

Falvicar quietly says, "So did Chaston... sort of."

Pylasar reaches into his neckpouch and removes a handful of purple dirt. He then throws it on Roblar...whose body begins to shift and...get some curves.

Roblar ducks his head.

Falvicar quietly says, "....ish."

Roblar's face turns slightly pale.

Evia says, "Oooh."

Spoetzel says, "Turn him into a boat."

Roblar taps himself on the chest.

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena says, "Oh boy."

Roblar deeply says, "Well."

Tzii says, "Curvy warrior."

Spoetzel applauds.

Pylasar pouts as the purple dirt falls from Roblar.

Pylasar says, "Curses."

Pylasar exclaims, "CURSES!"

Speaking delightedly to himself, Roblar exclaims, "Will av fun tonites!"

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena says, "You do feel a little different."

Pylasar says, "You are immune."

Speaking gently to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "It was worth a try."

Pukk's body, including any visible musculature, relaxes significantly. His skin then ripples violently, its appearance shifting, and sharp cracking sounds come from beneath his skin as his body transforms to alter his height and body.

The transformation seems to come to its conclusion as the cracking sounds fade away and Pukk's visible skin firms up around her muscles and facial features. It isn't entirely clear if this is an illusion framing her or her true form.

Pietra says, "I don't think anyone wants to see a female Roblar."

Pukk snuggles Leafiara, who responds by cradling an arm around her.

Roblar gazes at his reflection in the silver mirror.

Cryheart says, "A good effort, nonetheless."

Lylia coldly says, "Your idea of a curse is to turn him into a woman? Excellent. Perhaps he shall be a mayor or a Matriarch too."

Tzii asks, "A Roblette?"

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig says, "Drat... I think you'd look MUCH better as a woman..."

Lylia glares at Roblar.

Speaking stoutly to Pietra, Darcena says, "I like him no matter how curvy he is."

Lylia says, "And you need not look so relieved."

Roblar smiles at Lylia.

Greenish-black flames spring to life in Lylia's hand...

Roblar innocently asks, "Like to touch new me?"

Roblar strides over to stand before Lylia.

Roblar carefully rearranges the fit of his armor into a more comfortable position.

Speaking to Lylia, Spoetzel says, "Your hand . . is on . . fire."

Speaking to Spoetzel, Darcena says, "That happens when she gets angry."

Bbee says, "Roblaria."

Katami pinches herself hard.

Katami wonderingly affirms, "Still reality somehow."

Diamondelille asks, "Is this a dream?"

Roblar flexes his powerful muscles.

Speaking to Spoetzel, Lylia says, "Yes."

Roblar wipes the sweat from his brow.

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena says, "Now, Lylia..."

Speaking dryly to Diamondelille, Katami says, "That's what I was just checking on."

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena says, "Remember you have a thousand-year plan."

Bbee says, "I like Roblette bbbetter."

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr asks, "Purple Mage Ye be stayin bouts fer a TIME?"

Speaking to Lylia, Spoetzel says, "I would just like to remind you that I am small and cuddly. Nothing to be angry at."

Maags says, "Commander Roblette."

Bbee says, "Sounds more demure."

Lylia wearily says, "Of course."

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Elphieya says, "Though the flame might momentarily make you feel better, it will do little to cure ignorance."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Yosaffbrig asks, "Okay... so... what's with the fish, then? I get that Roblar is now the slayer of those fish... but... umm... Why was fishing it up so important, Mr. Magic-Man?"


Angry Fish

Pylasar frowns at Roblar.

Maags exclaims, "Thinks he catched the wrong thing!"

Spoetzel says, "Just in case."

Pylasar says, "You have angered them...."

Evia says, "Meanwhile, back in reality, Pietra is not giving up hope on catching a fish."

Avalera asks, "Who is them again?"

Tzii exclaims, "Metaboculous could slay sculpins too !"

Speaking to Tzii, Bbee says, "Aye he could."

Maags says, "Who can say metabsasafrashwha."

Roblar deeply says, "Dis da weak way to fish."

Evia says, "Metashashinaw."

Speaking softly to Maags, Wintersylph says, "Metabocolous."

Speaking quietly to Maags, Pukk says, "I'm having trouble remembering it."

Roblar deeply says, "True fishin, you jump in and grab wid fist and squeeze life out of."

Xorus says, "I prefer more efficient methods."

Xorus grabs a white gear-covered prism from a small pocket inside of his black leather coat.

Roblar deeply says, "Or, for funs throw spear."

Roblar deeply says, "And if something big..."

Roblar turns to face Tsarok.

Roblar deeply says, "You throw dis."

Speaking to Roblar, Bbee asks, "You a noodler?"

Roblar draws a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights from one of the sinew-bound dark oilskin loops sewn inside of his bear hide greatcloak.

A quick flick of Roblar's wrist sends a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights into flight!

Roblar throws a woven salt-encrusted net at Tsarok!

Tsarok evades the missile by a hair!

Pylasar walks to the edge of the dock.

Roblar picks up a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights.

Puptilian says, "Roblar, push him in."

A quick flick of Roblar's wrist sends a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights into flight!

Roblar throws a woven salt-encrusted net at Tsarok!

AS: +529 vs DS: +603 with AvD: +50 + d100 roll: +66 = +42

A clean miss.

The salt-encrusted net flies past Tsarok, disappearing into the local environs.

Evia says, "Send in a familiar and tell em FETCH FISH."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "Do not lets him fall in."

Roblar searches around for a moment.

Roblar finds a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights that had been obscured from view!

Pukk picks up a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights.

Maags says, "Though a purple sea coud be pretty."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Look at what I found!"

[Roll result: 125 (open d100: 26)]

Roblar picks an opening, attempts to disarm Pukk's salt-encrusted net barehanded and connects!

Pukk's salt-encrusted net is knocked to the ground!

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "I'm still confused on how his little bit of lightning along the fishing line didn't kill the fish before it was dragged up onto the dock..."

Pylasar raises his hands to the sky!

Roblar picks up a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights.

Roblar slips a woven salt-encrusted net with polished mithril weights into one of the sinew-bound dark oilskin loops sewn inside of his bear hide greatcloak.

Pylasar exclaims, "RISE! Answer the call of your fallen brother!"

Yosaffbrig melodically says, "That doesn't sound good..."

Darcena asks, "What is he raising?"

Leafiara interestedly asks, "Oh, is a much bigger fish coming?"

Avalera says, "I have a bad feeling."

Pylasar exclaims, "Rise Scaleless Sculpin of the Seas!"

Falvicar quietly says, "As long as it's not a fish demon."

Tsarok quietly asks, "Are we fighting something?"

Roblar deeply says, "So long as not another krane.."

Cryheart asks, "He calls the Kraken?"

Tzii exclaims, "Tuna of the landin !"

Pylasar exclaims, "May your Strongest Foe Vanquished be a Roblar!"

Speaking to Roblar, Darcena says, "If I get eaten by a giant sculpin, I will not forgive you for a day."

Speaking perplexedly to Falvicar, Leafiara asks, "What do you mean -not-?"

Pylasar exclaims, "RISE!"

Roblar deeply says, "Ok, shall slays it."

Thrassus says, "You never know."

Speaking to Cryheart, Goldstr says, "Less hopes nae."

Spoetzel says, "Roblar is on the hook for killing its brother."

Falvicar quietly says, "We've seen weird things before."

The waters begin to bubble.

Tzii exclaims, "Bubbleh !"

Pylasar steps back, lowering his arms to his side.

Elphieya quietly says, "Water bubbling seems wrong."

Pylasar says, "I cannot save you now."

Cryheart says, "Is nae good."

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus asks, "How did you do that?"

Speaking to Elphieya, Spoetzel says, "Maybe it's my boat."

Speaking to Pylasar, Bbee says, "Careful, they'll send a Kraken."

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig says, "If you've killed us all by giant fish... I am going to be very put out with you."

Speaking to Pylasar, Shinann asks, "What did you call?"

Speaking heartily to Roblar, Chamorr says, "Doooomed."

Speaking quietly to Thrassus, Pukk says, "Magic...duh."

Tzii exclaims, "Fishvasion !"

Felita asks, "Whats gonna happen to thhe fishies?"

Speaking deeply to Yosaffbrig, Roblar exclaims, "But what a story you will tells da other dead spirits!"

Tiny purple bubbles begin to form on the surface of the water, like glistening violet zits.

Roblar deeply says, "And tell dem allos, az me sent most der."

Speaking hopefully to Roblar, Leafiara exclaims, "That's the spirit!"

Tzii exclaims, "The shanty town will be swaller't by a whale !"

Falvicar quietly says, "Gross."

Speaking to Pylasar, Evia says, "Why should they help you, you waved a poop diaper at them for an hour."

Pukk quietly says, "Watch it be a small minnow."

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig asks, "First it was death by assassin trying to kill Crux... then it was death by snow queen... Why do I keep coming to these gatherings?"

One by one, the tiny purple bubbles begin to ascend, lifting up and out of the water and floating up into the air, high above the docks.

Pylasar frowns at Roblar.

Tzii exclaims, "A roltonfish !"

Speaking deeply to Yosaffbrig, Roblar asks, "Because you don't cherish life?"

Tzii says, "With cute little fishtail and fangs."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Bubble fish!"

Spoetzel says, "Well I haven't seen that this week."

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig says, "It's because I'm a hedonist."

Cryheart yells, "Nothing yet Miss Maags!"

Roblar yells, "Well arise, you great big fish!"

Avalera says, "Too high to pop."

Tzii says, "I shoulda braught my 90 lbs club."

As the host of bubbles continue to rise, the first one pops and a purple sculpin falls to the dock with a SMACK!

Tzii exclaims, "Smooshfish !"

>ms scul

You eye a purple scorpion sculpin, considering how best to unleash your fury upon it.

Roblar deeply asks, "Will dis be big enuff?"

Elphieya quietly says, "Oh my..."

POP!

Pietra exclaims, "NOW we're fishing!"

POP!

Yosaffbrig melodically exclaims, "OOooh! LOTS of fishies!"

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

>look

[Wehnimer's, Middle Dock]

Laboring dockworkers and strolling seamen mingle here on the weathered planks of the dock, between the hulls of large seafaring merchantmen. The groan of ships pulling at hawsers, the clatter of feet upon gangplanks, and the swearing of the dockworkers mix with the cries of seabirds and the cadence of waves against the pilings. You also see a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a purple scorpion sculpin, a pudgy frosting-covered dormouse, an erratic aurora spirit that is flying around, some warm blackberry cobbler, a faceted dark sapphire pill, a steel lockpick, a large narrow-winged falcon, the Bbee disk, the Elphieya disk, a forest wolf, a timorous forest spirit that is flying around, a surly mountain spirit that is flying around, a grey wolf that is sitting, a spotted great horned owl, some huge wooden crates, some huge wooden crates, some stacked piles of supplies and a black imperial wagon with a glowing blue-white pylon on it.

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

Cryheart says, "We are getting overrun with sculpin."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Bubble invasion!"

Pietra exclaims, "It's raining fish!"

Zolis deeply says, "And its raining fish..."

Maags exclaims, "Problies they cannot run fast!"

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig says, "I believe this may be your calling..."

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

POP!

Maags says, "They are drunk."

Evia says, "Great, a plague of fish."

Speaking quietly to a purple scorpion sculpin, Pukk says, "You will be food, and you will like it."

Speaking to Roblar, Maylan exclaims, "Wrastle em! Wrastle all of em! Save us from our fishie fate!"

Spoetzel says, "Partly cloudy with a chance of sculpin."

Roblar deeply says, "Now for wine."

A purple sculpin falls on Roblar!

Roblar screams and falls to the ground grasping his mangled right leg!

Darcena says, "That sculpin never meant to cause you any sorrow, Roblar."

Evia yells, "SAVE THE FISH!"

Darcena says, "Nor any pain."

Speaking surprisedly to Roblar, Leafiara exclaims, "They did it!"

Roblar gazes up into the heavens.

Avalera says, "Too bad you can't use a sculpin as a leg."

A purple sculpin falls on Roblar!

Roblar scoffs.

Roblar rolls to the left, then springs to his feet, ready again for action!

Speaking to Roblar, Maags exclaims, "Duck!"

Goldstr says, "I cookin Sculpins later."

Darcena focuses on Roblar with intense concentration.

Roblar's right leg wound gradually fades, forming on Darcena's right leg instead.

Roblar picks up a purple scorpion sculpin.

Roblar attempts to take a bite out of his still-living scorpion sculpin, and is rewarded with a hearty *SLAP* to the face as it wriggles about to get away!

Roblar attempts to take a bite out of his still-living scorpion sculpin, and is rewarded with a hearty *SLAP* to the face as it wriggles about to get away!

Roblar drops dead at your feet!

Maags says, "Oops."

Evia says, "OOPS."

Cryheart says, "Oops."

Pukk quietly says, "That was a deadly fish."

Leafiara thoughtfully says, "Now -this- is going into tonight's report."

Cryheart says, "Dinnae think I will eat this fish."

Tzii exclaims, "The sex change was not a success !"

Chamorr heartily says, "Scorpion."

Speaking quietly to a purple scorpion sculpin, Pukk exclaims, "Sorry!"

Bbee exclaims, "Whatthe!"

Speaking to Pukk, Evia says, "Deadliest catch, dontcha know."

Spoetzel says, "I think I'll set that down."

Claudaro says, "Roblar must be losing his edge in his old age..."

Pylasar frowns.

Speaking melodically to Roblar, Yosaffbrig says, "Death by fish wave."

The ghostly voice of Roblar deeply says, "And dat everyun iz why you don't eat raw fish......"

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena asks, "Are you going to get a knife out and gut him now?"

Thrassus says, "That's a first."

Speaking amusedly to Pylasar, Pietra says, "Well this is going well."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Let's roll him into the water!"

Pylasar kneels down.

Tzii exclaims, "The sculpins will have their revenge !"

Pylasar just pulled Roblar's lifeless body into his arms.

Pylasar weeps.

Tzii says, "Vengeful fishies."

Pylasar just pulled Roblar's lifeless body into his arms.

Speaking sternly to Pylasar, Darcena says, "You should feel bad."

Speaking to Pylasar, Maags exclaims, "He will be fine in a moment promise!"

Pylasar sobs into Roblar's dead chest.

Speaking angrily to Pylasar, Darcena says, "You should feel very, very bad."

Spoetzel says, "And that's why I'm up on a crate. Don't need some giant person with a fish allergy falling over on me."

Speaking to Roblar, Maags exclaims, "Live and do not find revenge!"

Maags throws her hands in the air in frustration!

Shinann says, "Maybe it was the other one's family. Revenge."

Speaking deeply to Pylasar, the ghostly voice of Roblar says, "Your fish have changed the future."

Maags thrusts her gloved hand into the air while chanting a magic phrase under her breath. A beam of bright, pearlescent light shoots forcefully upwards from the silvery sigil on her glove.

Maags raises a hand while murmuring a soft orison...

Maags gestures at Roblar.

Rich and lively, the scent of wild flowers suddenly fills the air as Maags finishes her chant, and an aura of energy forms a rose-hued nimbus around her. Lifting her fingers, Maags gently touches Roblar's brow and the nimbus drains away from Maags as it fills Roblar with life.

Evia says, "That makes him the slain Slayer of Sculpin Roblar."

Speaking to Roblar, Bbee says, "Guess he finished you off."

Roblar deeply says, "Future damnation averted."

Evia says, "That makes him the PREVIOUSLY slain Slayer of Sculpin Roblar."

Speaking to Roblar, Maags exclaims, "Now has a tart instead of a fish and feels better!"

Roblar deeply says, "Now you die."

Roblar slips a hand to his ankle, deftly retrieving a serrated alloy hunting knife.

Tsarok quietly says, "Slayed by Sculpins Roblette."

Pylasar put a glowing purple fishing rod in his gold-laced neckpouch.

Speaking softly to Roblar, Wintersylph asks, "I guess you won't get hooked on eating those fish?"

Roblar pounds a chunk of raw scorpion sculpin with his fist, sending it flying.

Speaking to a purple scorpion sculpin, Tarine marvels, "I badly need to study what you eat to get so strong."

Spoetzel says, "This battle is over. We were trouted."


Parting Thoughts

Pylasar says, "All is right once more."

Spoetzel exclaims, "Who said that?!"

Pylasar exclaims, "OH!"

Evia asks, "Yay?"

Speaking to Spoetzel, Darcena says, "Pylasar was just using Roblar as a sculp-goat."

Xorus says, "Not quite. It still is not Tamzyrr."

Pylasar says, "I just thought..."

Pylasar says, "Perhaps I cannot find all of the hidden ones..."

Pylasar says, "But..."

Pylasar rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Spoetzel exclaims, "That bass killed Roblar!"

Shinann asks, "Hidden what?"

Pylasar says, "I wonder if....oh yes maybe that one could."

Roblar deeply exclaims, "Killed two!"

Speaking to Cryheart, Evia asks, "We're tired from fishing can we play something else now?"

Pylasar stands up.

Pylasar bounces around happily.

Darcena asks, "But if they're hidden, how can we eat them?"

Xorus asks, "Where?"

Lylia says, "I would be happy to help you seek it."

Pylasar exclaims, "Excuse me! I must be off!"

Speaking to her scorpion sculpin, Maags says, "I shall not eat yous."

Maags exclaims, "Wait!"

Pylasar exclaims, "I'll be back yesterday!"

Maags exclaims, "What is hidden!"

Falvicar quietly says, "Oh boy."

Falvicar quietly says, "But... we're not here yesterday."

Lylia asks, "Do you mean tomorrow?"

Falvicar quietly says, "We're here tomorrow."

Pylasar leaps up into the air, suddenly turns into a purple sculpin and splashes into the water, swimming out of sight!
