  • This is from Geijon's perspective on 4/1/2012
A massive shape is outlined in crimson against the night sky.  It circles overhead, cutting through the clouds on leathery wings.

Ekal says, "Oh my."

Cryheart asks, "Vathor?"

Hinonshu hoarsely says, "Duskborn."

Ekal gazes up into the heavens.

Kilthal softly says, "That is the Duskborn."

Cryheart nods at Kilthal.

Kilthal softly says, "And we are going to kill it."

A colorful flare rises into the air high above the free port of Solhaven.

Magister Raelee just arrived.

Ekal says, "I do hope i can find a way to survive the challenge."

The shape dips down toward the town, and the wind of its flapping wings buffets you as it screeches back up toward the skies.

Kilthal softly says, "If ye can cast fire spirit, do so."

Archales adroitly dons his golvern-plated warhelm and then adjusts it, checking for a secure fit.

Archales reaches inside one of the containers hanging from his lacquered harness and grabs a golvern-framed lantern with sooty dragonmist crystal panes.

Speaking softly to Ekal, Kilthal says, "Ye might want to get up."

Godefroy gestures.
A flare leaves Godefroy's hand and shoots up into the sky where it hangs for a few moments before exploding into a breathtaking array of colors.  The sheer brightness of the image before you lingers in your sight for several seconds after the explosion can no longer be seen.

Kilthal softly says, "Going to keep us moving."

Cryheart nods at Kilthal.

[Eastbridge, Disaster Area]
Paired temples stand to either side of the street.  The gate to the east bears the silver clenched fist of Kai, while to the west, a ruined opening leads in to the ransacked grounds of Ronan's Temple.  Flanking Eastbridge Lane, the two temples guard the roadway from the temples of Lornon south of the canal.  You also see a drunken sailor, a pelican and a tall ironwood sign positioned by the ruined opening.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Godefroy, Lord Chivalrous, Silverthorne, Kilthal
Obvious paths: north, south, west

Kilthal softly says, "Going to swing around and then head for the beach."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "If ye do not have an amulet activated, I suggest doing so."

Kilthal adds Cyral to his group.

Cyral raises an eyebrow.

Speaking softly to Cyral, Kilthal says, "No missing the fun."

Cyral chuckles to himself.

Chivalrous utters a light chant and raises his hands, beckoning the lesser spirits to his aid...
Chivalrous gestures.
A flare leaves Chivalrous's hand and shoots up into the sky where it hangs for a few moments before exploding into a breathtaking array of colors.  The sheer brightness of the image before you lingers in your sight for several seconds after the explosion can no longer be seen.

Archales tosses a golvern-framed lantern with sooty dragonmist crystal panes into one of the containers hanging from his lacquered harness.

Kilthal softly says, "Heading out to them."

Cryheart says, "Formed up at the caverns they be."

Kilthal's group just went west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
Hundreds of apples in various states of ripeness and decay litter the sides of the road as the path strikes through an apple orchard.  Flies and gnats swarm from the fruit when approached.  The trees still support many edible, ripe apples ready for the plucking.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Godefroy, Cyral, Lord Chivalrous, Silverthorne, Kilthal
Obvious paths: east, southwest

Kilthal softly says, "Keep casting fire spirit."

Kilthal softly says, "Let us see if the Duskborn wants to come out to us."

Godefroy gestures.
A flare leaves Godefroy's hand and shoots up into the sky where it hangs for a few moments before exploding into a breathtaking array of colors.  The sheer brightness of the image before you lingers in your sight for several seconds after the explosion can no longer be seen.

Cryheart gazes up into the heavens.

Godefroy says, "We may want to leave a familiar at the cave mouth."

Kilthal softly says, "I was going to have it go to North Market."

Kilthal softly says, "Keep an eye on things there."

Rtune says, "Was putting zaps in triage."

Kilthal softly says, "Also a good idea."

Godefroy says, "I imagine the Magister's familiar will be there."

Kilthal's group just went to a sandy path leading into the dunes to the southwest.
[Vornavis, Sandy Path]
Small hills of sandy dirt line this path to both sides.  Tall, dry grasses hiss softly, swaying lazily in the breeze.  To the east, the path meets with a well-defined road.  To the southwest, the sandy path continues toward the coast.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Godefroy, Cyral, Lord Chivalrous, Silverthorne, Kerl, Rtune, Karibeth, Kilthal
Obvious paths: southwest

You squint.

Godefroy says, "Careful with triage.  The last time, triage was hit my a temporal rift."

Kilthal's group just wandered up a sandy path.
[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
A natural cavern has been worn into the cliff face by the constant pounding of the surf.  Jagged rocks surround the entrance to the cavern, but the floor inside is sandy and dry.  The crashing waves can be heard just outside, but none of the waves manage to enter the cavern.  You also see a sandy path leading down to the beach.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Godefroy, Cyral, Lord Chivalrous, Silverthorne, Kerl, Rtune, Karibeth, Kilthal
Obvious exits: none

Kilthal's group just wandered into a natural cavern.
[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern turns sharply here, the sounds of the ocean fading away to the south.  Echoes of dripping water grow steadily louder to the west.  The floor of the cavern dips low here, and a shallow pool of salt water gathers in the corner.  You also an oilcloth backpack, an oilcloth backpack, an oilcloth backpack and a lesser striped owl.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Godefroy, Cyral, Lord Chivalrous, Silverthorne, Kerl, Rtune, Karibeth, Kilthal, Vivina, Lilabell, Suntzhu, Lady Misun, Lady Divone, Whisker, Sir Metadi, Vilkea, Pereus, Sir Bristenn
Obvious exits: northeast, west, out

Kilthal nods at Bristenn.

Godefroy takes an oilcloth backpack off his back.

Kilthal softly says, "We will guard the exit."

Godefroy drops an oilcloth backpack.

Rolfard [General]: "Ya explorin?"

Bristenn [General]: "If it approaches, stand aside and let it swoop on in."

Bristenn [General]: "Despite the fact that swooping is bad and all."

Rolfard [General]: "Err...the town be abandoned."

Bristenn [General]: "So, really, do not engage.  Block the exit, however."

Godefroy says, "I'm going to lend my spells to the group guarding the package."

Kerl whispers to the group, "What's the plan if this thing shows up and attacks?"

Rtune says, "Rule 1."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "We want it to show up."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "We want it inside the cavern where it cannot get out."

Metadi [General]: "After it's inside."

Cryheart [General]: "What if it attacks?"

Kerl whispers to the group, "I know you do... but to what end?"

Kilthal whispers to the group, "And then we kill it with whatever means necessary."

Bristenn [General]: "Drive it inside."

Godefroy whispers to the group, "Fighting retreat to the other group."

You whisper, "Its corpse is needed for some recipe to stop th' dreamer." to your group.

Kerl whispers to the group, "But we wait till it's in the cavern?"

Kilthal whispers to the group, "We want it in the cavern so it is trapped and cannot fly away."

Cryheart [General]: "So we wait until it enters the cavern and block its exit?"

Godefroy whispers to the group, "The oil may be the only way to fully take it down."

Metadi [General]: "Exactly."

Bristenn [General]: "That should work, yes."

Chivalrous [General]: "Perhaps we should send fire at it and force it that way?"

Kilthal softly says, "Fire has been known to drive it back before."

Speaking to Kilthal, Chivalrous says, "Just whawt I was thinking."

Kilthal softly says, "So mages, I suggest using that against it."

Cryheart [General]: "Can manuevers like feint or tackle work on it?"

Rtune asks, "How many mages is here?"

Kerl asks, "And if it dies right here, at our feet, what do we do with the corpse?"

Rtune giggles.

Metadi [General]: "I'd be surprised. But ye can try."

Kilthal [General]: "We have not yet faced it on the ground.  We will learn as we go."

Kilthal softly says, "It has only touched down and changed form once."

Ekal asks, "Major fire is what you are requesting i presume?"

Kilthal softly says, "Any kind of fire."

Kilthal softly says, "May need to experiment."

Cryheart [General]: "We shall push Kerl into the cave hole when it enters...he is wearing that krodera plate armor."

Kilthal softly says, "We are learning as we go."

Speaking softly to Karibeth, Kilthal says, "I would let the mages find out what works first."

Ekal says, "There is always meteor swarm....mght do some damage."

Ekal grins.

Kilthal softly says, "Everyone else, stab it with the pointy end of yer weapons."

Metadi [General]: "Remember that it's a creature o' dreams."

Kerl [General]: "Bad idea, bad idea!"

Metadi [General]: "And nae necessarily a creature o' magic."

Kerl whispers to the group, "Can it be hit with normal weapons?"

Kilthal [General]: "The Duskborn is about to have one final nightmare of its own before its dream ends."

Cryheart [General]: "Like use blessable weapons?"

Kilthal whispers to the group, "We do not know."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "None of us have fought it before."

Metadi [General]: "My point was that kroderine may nae hae an effect."

Rtune asks, "So driving it anywhere is fairly speculative?"

Silverthorne says, "En garde."

Kilthal [General]: "How are things in Solhaven itself?"

Kerl says, "Guess it has a thing for roltons.  Favorite meal perhaps.  After rangers."

Kilthal softly says, "Killing this thing will be difficult enough."

Rtune says, "If it presents itself."

You say, "We are trying to kill one, but three exist, eh..."

Rtune says, "Hey there mages."

Rtune says, "They are saying to use fire on this snuffleuffagus."

Rtune says, "Me means duskborn."

Cryheart says, "Ye hae plenty fo that."

Rtune says, "Right? finally a fight where fire is good."

Rtune giggles.

Chivalrous [General]: "I've always hated crepuscular creatures."

Kilthal softly says, "Eyes sharp."

Kilthal softly says, "They felt something on top of the cave."

Kilthal softly says, "The inside group."

Rolfard raspily asks, "Well, must be flying over the city cuz its scared of all dem folks in town?"

Rolfard raspily asks, "So...fire its the fear of the duskborn?"

Kilthal softly says, "We only know it has driven it back once before."

Drigore [General]: "Mynalia is about Market."

Rtune asks, "Wutsa mynalia?"

Bristenn [General]: "Bring her out here, perchance?"

Kilthal softly says, "She is an apprentice mage."

Cryheart says, "Ahhh."

Rtune says, "Good we are short on amateurs."

Speaking softly to Silverthorne, Kilthal says, "They need a ranger."

Silverthorne asks, "Who do I join?"

Kilthal softly says, "Bristenn."

Kilthal softly says, "They should be at the center of the cavern."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "Be ready now."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "Warnings from the other group."

Bristenn [General]: "Alright, keep the aboveground exit blocked."

Metadi [General]: "Ye might bring her tae the other group, where she'll be in less danger."

Kilthal softly says, "Well."

Kilthal softly says, "That is a surprise."

Kerl asks, "It is?"

Rtune says, "Wut is."

Cryheart asks, "What is?"

Kilthal softly says, "Magister Ophia just showed up."

Chivalrous says, "Oh good, more magisters."

Kilthal softly says, "It may be the Duskborn in her form."

Kilthal softly says, "We are moving to close."

Kilthal's group just went north.
[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The floor here is about half covered with sand.  A steady breeze blows from the south, where the light grows much brighter.  The sound of the surf can be heard faintly to the south.
Also here: Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Cyral, Lord Chivalrous, Rtune, Karibeth, Tillmont, Herachio, Kerl, Kilthal
Obvious exits: south, southwest

Drigore [General]: "I am not bringing her anywhere like a doll to drag around. She is still looking for Carellus."

Orphia says, "I am.  That is all."

Kilthal gazes with interest at Orphia.

Bristenn drops an oilcloth backpack.

Great wings detach themselves from Orphia's shadow for a moment before folding back around her silhouette.

You see Magister Orphia Veswind the Academic.
She appears to be a Human from Chastonia.
She is shorter than average and appears to be young and robust.  She has pale grey eyes and dark skin.  She has long, curly dull brown hair tied up in a bun with a suede twist.  She has an angular face and a sharp nose.
She is in good shape.
She is holding a thick tome bound in ivy-patterned leather in her left hand.
She is wearing a set of simple round silver earrings, a series of multicolored interlocking rings suspended from thin silver chain, a pair of copper-framed spectacles, a heavy russet wool dress with slashes of cream at the hems and sleeves, a blue-jeweled heavy gold ring, a small bronze lantern, and a pair of soft leather slippers.

Godefroy says, "Bloody heavy, that."

Pereus says, "Well now, that doesnt seem friendly."

Orphia says, "Elementals.  Intriguing."

Orphia says, "Your mind is more complex than the two that gave birth to us."

Orphia says, "More memories, but less passion."

Orphia looks thoughtfully at Godefroy.

Chivalrous whispers to the group, "Who is she talking to?"

Misun walks towards Godefroy.

Godefroy says, "Well, I suppose that's only appropriate for a servant of the Church..."

Kerl moves over to Godefroy and stands ready to guard him from attack.

Speaking to Orphia, Misun asks, "What are you doing to him?"

(Godefroy keeps his focus on the tip of his scepter.)

Speaking to Misun, Orphia says, "The world has changed a great deal since the Father began his sleep."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "Orphia was a Magister sent to help with the situation.  She went missing weeks ago."

Ekal whispers to the group, "Wasn't she stuck in another plane?"

Kilthal whispers to the group, "Contact was later made with her.  She was trapped inside the Library of Fash'lo'nae."

Godefroy asks, "In what ways?"

Orphia says, "My sister and my brother have discovered fields full of fat sheep, dreams to rend, emotions on which to feed."

Godefroy asks, "That was not the case, in centuries past?"

Kilthal whispers to the group, "She is talking right now like a Duskborn though."

You whisper, "Brother and Sister seems to indicate th' other two duskborn." to your group.

Kilthal whispers to the group, "As  assume sister and brother refer to...yes."

Ekal whispers to the group, "We are not the sheep are we?"

Speaking to Orphia, you say, "You do not appear to be th' person who's skin you wear."

Orphia asks, "Would another form please you?"

Metadi firmly says, "Nae."

Chivalrous says, "More dead..."

Orphia's skin crawls and shifts, and the sound of bones popping echoes through the night.

Cyral quietly says, "Something more pretty, preferrably.. not less.."

Bristenn slowly observes, "..not .. exactly.."

Paidreg asks, "This one, instead?"

Misun stares at Paidreg.

Chivalrous blinks at Paidreg.

Cryheart blinks.

You see Paidreg Venquinor the Nobleman.
He appears to be a Human from Vornavis.
He is of average stature and appears to have come of age.  He has green-ringed hazel eyes and freckled skin.  He has short, wavy dark ginger hair gathered back into a tight ponytail.  He has a laugh-lined face, a patrician nose and a faint scar forming a crescent around his left eye.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing a dark ivory robe adorned with a golden crown on its breast, and a pair of tanned leather sandals.

Metadi glares at Paidreg.

[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern turns sharply here, the sounds of the ocean fading away to the south.  Echoes of dripping water grow steadily louder to the west.  The floor of the cavern dips low here, and a shallow pool of salt water gathers in the corner.  You also see an oilcloth backpack, an oilcloth backpack, an oilcloth backpack, a heavy backpack, an oilcloth backpack, a billowing misty grey scorpion, the blue Rtune disk, the Kilthal disk, the Karibeth disk, the Kerl disk, the Cyral disk, the Tillmont disk, the Herachio disk, the Geijon disk, a plump tree frog, a lesser striped owl, a sleek sable wildcat, the Lilabell disk, the Suntzhu disk and the Vivina disk.
Also here: Paidreg, Great Lady Auragin, Kerl, Herachio, Tillmont, Karibeth, Rtune, Lord Chivalrous, Archales, Lord Balantine, Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Cyral, Kilthal, Silverthorne, Sir Metadi, Kateerina, Godefroy, Magister Raelee, Vivina, Lilabell, Suntzhu, Lady Misun, Lady Divone, Whisker, Vilkea, Pereus, Sir Bristenn
Obvious exits: northeast, west, out

Speaking to Paidreg, Raelee asks, "Might I ask a question?"

Speaking to Raelee, Paidreg asks, "Is the question relevant?"

Rtune says, "Only demons can do wut yew just did."

Speaking to Paidreg, Raelee says, "My inquiries always are."

Metadi mutters, "Definitely nae him."

Speaking dryly to Metadi, Chivalrous says, "Nailed it."

Speaking to Paidreg, Raelee says, "Why do you believe your form matters?  The reality of what you are is known."

Bristenn slowly paces to his right, moving in a circle around Paidreg.

Metadi mutters, "Thing o' nightmare."

Paidreg says, "It does not matter, save that we can communicate better upon taking a form closer to your own."

Paidreg says, "We wish to live."

Vilkea stares at Paidreg.

Vivina asks, "What is it you wish to communicate?"

Mynalia takes a moment to observe Paidreg.

Speaking slowly to Paidreg, Bristenn notes, "..funny, because we're technically here to kill you."

Godefroy asks, "You mentioned the two that gave you birth.  Whom?"

Kilthal softly says, "Ye wish to live, yet ye seek to kill us all."

Rtune says, "Yes telling the plan is always a good sign."

You chuckle at Rtune.

Paidreg says, "The Mother, and the Father."

Vilkea asks, "Mother?"

Godefroy gets a blank look on his face.

Kilthal softly says, "Indhis and Yaolara."

Speaking to Paidreg, Chivalrous asks, "What is your relationship to them?"

Metadi mutters, "Orphia."

Paidreg says, "They birthed us.  We are their children."

Rtune asks, "Yew is plural?"

Speaking to Rtune, Godefroy explains, "There are three."

You whisper, "These duskborn seem linked telepathically." to your group.

Metadi asks, "And if the Father gets loose, ye too will die?"

Vilkea says, "A child does not have to choose the path of their parents."

Rtune says, "Ah me sees."

Rtune says, "Maybe yew could call them all down here and we can talk this outs."

Rtune smiles.

Godefroy asks, "You choose to parlay rather than attack.  Do you have an offer, in negotiation?"

Athalia asks, "Why must you seek to kill us?"

Speaking to Rtune, Metadi says, "Uh..."

Misun surreptitiously glances at Athalia.

You see Athalia Aricia.
She appears to be a Human.
She appears to be youthful.  She has mischievous blue-green eyes and milky white skin.  She has very long, tangled golden brown hair pulled into several tight braids plaited to wrap the crown of her head.  She has a heart-shaped face, an upturned nose and full lips.
She is in good shape.
She is wearing a delicate gold coronet, a pair of emerald-inset silver stud earrings, a delicate midnight blue rose tucked behind one ear, a braided gold and silver chain, a scoop-necked emerald velvet dress with billowing sleeves and silver knotwork trim, a pair of fine kidskin gloves, a ring of silver ivy leaves twined about a blood-red ruby, and some soft kidskin boots.

Metadi glances at Cryheart.

Cryheart glances at Athalia.

Cryheart squints at Athalia.

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Metadi says, "Strength. Tis nae her."

Cryheart nods at Metadi.

Athalia touches Cryheart.

Cryheart frowns.

Speaking softly to Cryheart, Athalia asks, "Why?"

Cryheart glances at Athalia.

Cryheart says, "The real Lady Athalia, I would sense."

Cryheart nods at Athalia.

Speaking to Athalia, Metadi says, "Because ye aid that which seeks the destruction o' us all."

Cryheart says, "And it is nae ye."

Cryheart says, "I knew the Lady Athalia."

Speaking abruptly to Athalia, Raelee asks, "... are you capable of extraplanar travel?"

Athalia cocks her head.

Athalia says, "The Father will break free.  It is known."

Kilthal softly says, "No."

Cryheart asks, "Amazing, ye copy her heart-shaped face...how do ye come by that knowledge?"

Orphia smirks.

Cryheart nods at Orphia.

You see Magister Orphia Veswind the Academic.
She appears to be a Human from Chastonia.
She is shorter than average and appears to be young and robust.  She has pale grey eyes and dark skin.  She has long, curly dull brown hair tied up in a bun with a suede twist.  She has an angular face and a sharp nose.
She is in good shape.
She is holding a thick tome bound in ivy-patterned leather in her left hand.
She is wearing a set of simple round silver earrings, a series of multicolored interlocking rings suspended from thin silver chain, a pair of copper-framed spectacles, a heavy russet wool dress with slashes of cream at the hems and sleeves, a blue-jeweled heavy gold ring, a small bronze lantern, and a pair of soft leather slippers.

Metadi says, "And ye will die tae, when he breaks free."

Speaking to Orphia, Raelee asks, "... where did you meet your current form?"

Kilthal softly says, "Except off this mortal coil once and for all."

Kilthal whispers to the group, "Most likely the Duskborn is drawing the forms from ours minds."

Orphia strides toward Godefroy and touches his forehead gently.

Orphia says, "In here."

Godefroy slowly empties his lungs.

Raelee quietly breathes, "... fascinating."

Godefroy says, "So that is what you were rooting around in there for..."

Orphia says, "It seems that we are at an impasse."

Rtune says, "Out with it then."

Rtune nods at Orphia.

Orphia says, "We wish to live.  You wish for us to die."

Godefroy asks, "Do you have a suggestion, not involving death?"

Speaking to Kilthal, Orphia says, "No.  You are food."

Speaking to Orphia, Ekal says, "It seems we die whenever you show up already."

Speaking coldly to Orphia, Kilthal says, "We are not food."

Speaking coldly to Orphia, Kilthal says, "Ye want to try us, ye will find this meal is bloody tough."

Speaking quietly to Kilthal, Mynalia says, "Clearly we are for some."

Bristenn tiredly notes, "I grow weary of this discussion."

Mynalia glances at Orphia.

Orphia says, "I wish to know where the weapon is."

Kerl asks, "The weapon?"

Speaking to Mynalia, Raelee says, "Valid point.  And more than merely this creature."

Raelee looks thoughtfully at Orphia.

Godefroy asks, "Would you like to see it, then?"

Orphia glances at an oilcloth backpack.

Orphia glances at Godefroy.

Speaking softly to Orphia, Kilthal says, "We have been waiting a long time to show it to ye."

Speaking to Bristenn, Godefroy says, "Go ahead.  Show her."

Bristenn nods at Godefroy.

Orphia says, "Your trap will fail."

Rtune says, "Wut trap."

Bristenn removes a gold-tipped pale ivory warhorn from his belt.

Bristenn lifts his pale ivory warhorn to his lips and gives a mighty blow, loosing a long resounding blast from the warhorn!

Godefroy utters a light chant and raises his hands, beckoning the lesser spirits to his aid...

Bristenn hangs a gold-tipped pale ivory warhorn from his belt.

Speaking softly to Orphia, Kilthal says, "So will yer life."

Bristenn drops all defense as he moves into a battle-ready stance.

Orphia says, "I speak of the Light that burns us."

Kilthal skillfully weaves another verse into his harmony, directing the sound of his voice at Orphia.
Orphia relaxes and sits down, entranced by the soothing melody.

Orphia is enraged by Metadi's attack!
[Roll result: 305 (open d100: 168)]
Metadi feints low, Orphia buys the ruse and twists awkwardly to block the blow that never came!

Godefroy gestures at Orphia.
A brilliant white ball of light forms just above the top of Godefroy's fireleaf scepter.  It quickly grows in size until he lightly jerks his scepter, causing the radiance to instantaneously spread throughout the entire room!

The radiant burst of light engulfs Orphia!
  CS: +410 - TD: +325 + CvA: +25 + d100: +81 == +191
  Warding failed!
  The bright light sears Orphia's skin for 10 damage!
   ... 20 points of damage!
   Plasma encircles Orphia's neck causing skin to shrivel and bleed!
   She is stunned!
   ... 5 points of damage!
   Flash burns to eye momentarily blind Orphia.

Kilthal looks determined and focused.
In an awe inspiring display of combat mastery, Kilthal engages Orphia in a furious dance macabre, spiralling into a blur of strikes and ripostes!
Kilthal swings a tempestuous airy gladius at Orphia!  A hit!
   Strike through both ears, Orphia is quite dead!

 * Orphia drops dead at your feet!

Divone gestures at an oilcloth backpack.
Divone hurls a roaring ball of fire at an oilcloth backpack!
The oilcloth backpack glows with a warm aura then quickly cools off.

Speaking softly to Orphia, Kilthal says, "No more."

The corpse lies there, but the shadows detach from it and roil around.

Metadi says, "Burn it."

You see Magister Orphia Veswind the Academic.
She appears to be a Human from Chastonia.
She is shorter than average and appears to be young and robust.  She has pale grey eyes and dark skin.  She has long, curly dull brown hair tied up in a bun with a suede twist.  She has an angular face and a sharp nose.
She appears to be DEAD!
She has moderate bleeding from her neck, a bruised right eye, a bruised left eye, and severe head trauma and bleeding from the ears.
She is bleeding from the neck.
She is holding a thick tome bound in ivy-patterned leather in her left hand.
She is wearing a set of simple round silver earrings, a series of multicolored interlocking rings suspended from thin silver chain, a pair of copper-framed spectacles, a heavy russet wool dress with slashes of cream at the hems and sleeves, a blue-jeweled heavy gold ring, a small bronze lantern, and a pair of soft leather slippers.

Orphia stands up.

You point at Orphia.

Metadi roars, "Burn it!"

Bristenn abruptly shouts, "Get the wounded out!  Light them!"

You say, "Its up."

Rtune gestures at Orphia.
  CS: +534 - TD: +325 + CvA: +25 + d100: +42 == +276
  Warding failed!
Wisps of black smoke swirl around Orphia and she bursts into flame!
   ... 55 points of damage!
   Flame consumes Orphia's right arm all the way to the shoulder.

 * Orphia drops dead at your feet!

 * Orphia isn't dead, she's resting!

Orphia smirks faintly.

A quick flick of Kerl's wrist sends a black glaes throwing axe into flight!
Kerl throws a black glaes throwing axe at Orphia!
  AS: +785 vs DS: -52 with AvD: +30 + d100 roll: +40 = +907
   ... and hits for 379 points of damage!
   Powerful slash!
   Orphia's left leg is severed at the knee!

 * Orphia drops dead at your feet!

The guiding force leaves Kerl.

Kerl's glaes throwing axe spins rapidly through the air, the blade whooshing audibly with each revolution.  As it completes its arc, it reverses direction and lands solidly in his right hand, ready to throw again.

* To be... or not to be...  Guess Orphia chose the latter.

Kilthal just poured a flask of oil on Orphia!

Speaking to Raelee, Godefroy says, "Harvest what you need."

Metadi says, "Burn the whole cavern."

Divone says, "Quickly."

Cyral says, "Well, it's certainly more resilient than most things."

Kerl says, "It's gone."

Speaking to Godefroy, Raelee says, "I need the whole corpse."

Metadi says, "Its nightmare, remember."

Rtune asks, "Wut happen there?"

The ghostly voice of Orphia says, "We will not be so easily defeated."

A translucent-winged vertiginous horror comes running in!

Bristenn lets out an aggressive snarl and takes a spinning leap towards the horror.
Bristenn swings a wide-bladed cresset sword at a translucent-winged vertiginous horror!
  AS: +517 vs DS: +281 with AvD: +25 + d100 roll: +72 = +333
   ... and hits for 55 points of damage!
   Jarring blow to the ebon horror's back.
Raelee's hands glow with power as she summons elemental energy to her command...
Raelee gestures at a translucent-winged vertiginous horror.

Raelee hurls a roaring ball of fire at a translucent-winged vertiginous horror!
  AS: +540 vs DS: +331 with AvD: +22 + d100 roll: +93 = +324
   ... and hits for 67 points of damage!
   Minor burns to abdomen.  Looks painful.
The roaring ball of fire strikes a translucent-winged vertiginous horror, blossoming into a much larger sphere of flame upon impact.
   ... 10 points of damage!

The cavern turns sharply here, the sounds of the ocean fading away to the south.  Echoes of dripping water grow steadily louder to the west.  The floor of the cavern dips low here, and a shallow pool of salt water gathers in the corner.  You also see a fat black-eyed mouse, a billowing misty grey scorpion, the Tillmont disk, the Herachio disk, the Geijon disk, the Suntzhu disk, the Jiania disk, the Kerl disk, the Lilabell disk, the Vivina disk, the blue Rtune disk, the Hoy disk, the Cyral disk, the Karibeth disk and a black tourmaline.

Rtune says, "Thanx for coming out."

The corpse dissolves into twitching shadows.

Godefroy says, "Get the oil."

Kerl whispers to the group, "Ok, this time don't kill her... put her to sleep."

Rtune nods.

Bristenn grumpily mutters, "It's not a woman."

Metadi whispers to the group, "Indeed, this is nae a woman."

Bristenn offhandedly adds, "And, let's try preserving her next time that happens."

Godefroy asks, "...or did we get the oil distributed throughout the caves already?"

Rtune whispers to the group, "Only demons can change form like that."

Speaking to Bristenn, Godefroy says, "I did."

Divone nods at Godefroy.

Bristenn nods at Godefroy.

Raelee squints.

A long shadow stretches from the source of the light, framing the form of an old man as he walks toward the group.

Metadi whispers to the group, "Demons and nightmares."

Bristenn blinks at Carellus.

Drigore takes a moment to observe Carellus.

Carellus says, "Now, then."

You see Master Carellus Ranheles the Sage.
He appears to be a Human from Mestanir.
He is taller than average and appears to be in his golden years.  He has red-rimmed sea green eyes and ivory skin.  He has a wealth of long, snowy hair framing his face in gleaming coils.  He has a lined face, a crooked nose and a short tapered beard.
He has some minor cuts and bruises on his left leg, minor cuts and bruises on his back, and some minor cuts and bruises on his right leg.
He is holding a silvery illthorn quarterstaff carved with a pattern of stylized flames in his right hand.
He is wearing a gold-fringed blushed violet mantle, a pair of silver-framed spectacles with red-tinted lenses, a faded reddish-violet robe fastened by a series of hexagonal gold buttons, and a pair of worn leather sandals.

Metadi says, "Careful."

Vilkea moves to stand in front of Godefroy.

Speaking to Carellus, Raelee says, "... you have mere seconds to prove that you are, in fact, yourself."

The tip of Carellus's quarterstaff glows brightly, almost to blinding brilliance.
(
Speaking to Carellus, Raelee says, "That will do."

Speaking to Raelee, Carellus says, "Indeed."

Carellus says, "I've recovered the oil."

Rtune says, "Thats handy."

Godefroy says, "Good."

Carellus says, "Thank you for bringing it, and for keeping her busy whilst I completed our work."

Bristenn amusedly mumbles, "I'm glad the local trolls didn't run off with it."

Godefroy says, "I think...  I think the creature did not pull the nature of our weapon from my mind."

Speaking to Carellus, Bristenn admits, "It tried to parlay with us."

Bristenn slowly adds, "..it was rather unsettling."

Metadi says, "And feed on our feelings."

Speaking evenly to Carellus, Raelee says, "Your Apprentice is most concerned about you.”

Carellus says, "'Unsurprising.  As I said, their paranoia is such that they will believe almost any threat to them."

Bristenn sets the blade of his sword into the ground and stands confidently behind it, resting both hands atop its upraised handle.

[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern turns sharply here, the sounds of the ocean fading away to the south.  Echoes of dripping water grow steadily louder to the west.  The floor of the cavern dips low here, and a shallow pool of salt water gathers in the corner.  You also see a plump orange cat, the Kilthal disk, a fat black-eyed mouse, a billowing misty grey scorpion, the Tillmont disk, the Herachio disk, the Geijon disk, the Suntzhu disk, the Jiania disk, the Kerl disk, the Lilabell disk, the Vivina disk, the blue Rtune disk, the Hoy disk, the Cyral disk, the Karibeth disk and a black tourmaline.

Mynalia takes a moment to observe Carellus.

Speaking to Mynalia, Carellus says, "I see you are well." (Godefroy had errantly killed her ealier.)

Carellus says, "I will not be able to hold the light for long."

Rtune exclaims, "Wut the hex!"

Carellus says, "Therefore, let us be quick."

Mynalia says, "Where have you been?  I was worried about you when I couldn't find you."

Speaking to Carellus, Godefroy says, "Light can be...  dangerous, when not handled carefully."

Speaking to Mynalia, Carellus says, "I have been working down here."

Carellus says, "You will have noticed that the Duskborn cannot be easily contained once their form is incapacitated."

Carellus says, "Therefore, I have been working on a trap."

Bristenn tiredly agrees, "Rather slippery, they."

Rtune says, "It burns pretty easily tho."

Cyral suggests, "She wanted to eat Kilthal, maybe we should use him as bait?"

Smoke rises from Carellus's runestaff.

You say, "Godefroy seemed like prime meat also."

Godefroy sighs.

You snicker.

Speaking slowly to Carellus, Bristenn ventures, "And, explain the trap?"

Speaking tiredly to Carellus, Bristenn notes, "Before your staff burns up, that is."

Godefroy says, "Sure.  I'm game.  Last week, I held the line.  This week, I'll bait it."

Carellus says, "We must be quick about this.  There is a hidden door nearby.  You will provide the Duskborn with my location within."

Rtune says, "Well wutever we is doing let commence to doing it."

Bristenn nods slowly at Carellus.

Rtune nods at Carellus.

Carellus says, "I have prepared the oil you brought, but it will need to be lit manually."

Rtune says, "Hidden door lure dusky dealybob."

Speaking piously to Kilthal, Godefroy says, "The light of the Illuminated Crown is strong.”

Carellus says, "From within the trap.  I believe that I can keep myself from burning alive."

Rtune asks, "Can light with magix?"

Speaking to Carellus, you say, "I hope you plan to survive this."

Speaking quietly to you, Carellus says, "A hero, I am not."

Speaking seriously to Carellus, Raelee says, "You should have communicated this to us sooner."

Mynalia says, "The longer people know about a secret door the less likely it is to remain a secret."

Sir Eahlstan just arrived.

Eahlstan faces Divone and crisply renders a chivalrous salute.

You wave to Eahlstan.

Godefroy asks, "Perhaps something as direct as...  we guard the door to keep it out?"

Bristenn nods gravely at Eahlstan.

Speaking to Raelee, Carellus says, "You would have revealed the entirety of it, and that would have been unfortunate."

Chivalrous asks, "Since these things communicate telepathically, is it possible that killing one could hurt the others? How many others are there?"

Speaking to Chivalrous, Godefroy says, "Two."

Speaking softly to Raelee, Kilthal says, "Deal with it later."

Speaking coolly to Kilthal, Raelee says, "I do not take orders from you, Kilthal.  I never have.  Never will."

Speaking to Carellus, Bristenn asks, "Alright.  Where's this door?"

Bristenn tiredly mutters, "Don't say by the water."

Speaking softly to Raelee, Kilthal says, "And no one here takes orders from ye, including Carellus.  So stop standing above everyone else and focus on the matter at hand."

Carellus says, "I left a torch to mark its presence."

Bristenn nods in agreement at Carellus.

Bristenn abruptly notes, "Alright, everyone.  Let's go."

Speaking to Carellus, Bristenn asks, "You'll be here?"

Carellus says, "The door is well-warded, but the Duskborn will be able to pass through."

Bristenn amusedly mutters, "Alright, let's go bag us an Orphiaborn."

Rtune asks, "So we just say look mouse the cheese is thru that door?"

Sir Bristenn's group just went west.
[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The caverns to the east appear to have been created naturally by rushing water, but to the north, the cavern is obviously dug with tools.  Decorative patterns are etched into the walls, and etchings depicting battle scenes are mixed in with unfamiliar symbols.
Also here: Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Cyral, Sir Metadi, Kateerina, Godefroy, Magister Raelee, Vivina, Lilabell, Suntzhu, Lady Divone, Whisker, Vilkea, Pereus, Kerl, Lord Chivalrous, Rtune, Karibeth, Tillmont, Herachio, Drigore, Jiania, Hoy, Archales, Lord Balantine, Master Carellus, Kilthal, Mynalia, Lady Misun, Torverner, Great Lady Auragin, Sir Eahlstan, Sir Bristenn
Obvious exits: north, east

Sir Bristenn's group just went east.
[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern comes to a dead end to the east, after sloping very sharply down.  The water that has pooled here is rather deep and extremely cold.  The floor slopes upward to the west, and a tunnel enters this room high in the southwest wall.  You also see a cave troll and a small lit torch.

Obvious exits: west, up

Carellus nods.

Speaking softly to Mynalia, Kilthal asks, "Ye are holding here at the door?"

Metadi snickers to himself.

Karibeth glances at a rolling stone door.

Kerl says, "Whatever we do, we have to make sure it can't get in through the door."

Metadi loudly says, "Okay, we need tae talk tae Orphia, see if we can find out more about what the Dreamer wants."

Speaking to Kilthal, Mynalia says, "I'll be staying out here with the rest of you, if that's what you mean."

Cryheart says, "He be ready."

Bristenn nods in agreement.

Kilthal yells, "Hey ugly nightmare lady!"

Rtune says, "Here lil dusky rat."

Godefroy says, "Then let us learn what we can."

You belt out, "Come git yer food!"

Kilthal yells, "Come back out and talk!  Raelee has forty two questions for ye!"

Mynalia glances around the room.

Rtune says, "Maybe some horrors or warm up critters first."

Vivina says, "Perhaps we need to go find it."

Chivalrous says, "Fun that horrors are now a warmup for us."

Speaking quietly to herself, Mynalia muses, "Why must caverns always feel so cramped?"

Godefroy says, "The torch would not encourage it to linger here without reason.  That may give us the edge we need."

Rtune says, "Ooo tremors."

Bristenn tiredly notes, "And, here it comes."

Pereus says, "Something big is coming..."

Cryheart yells, "Did ye say ye knew where Carellus be?"

Divone exclaims, "Guard the door!"

Torverner removes a silver-edged black rolaren backsword with glossy panther fur wound about its hilt from in his mithril-buckled swordbelt.

Misun looks over at Auragin and shakes her head.

Speaking loudly to Cryheart, Mynalia says, "He's just through the door here, so whatever you do don't let anything get past it."

Shirkon just arrived.

Auragin blinks at Shirkon.

An immense form slithers in the darkness, its leathery wings rasping against the sides of the cavern.  With a popping of bones and the rubbery sound of reshaping flesh, a female form steps into view.

Bristenn raises an eyebrow in Orphia's direction.

[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern comes to a dead end to the east, after sloping very sharply down.  The water that has pooled here is rather deep and extremely cold.  The floor slopes upward to the west, and a tunnel enters this room high in the southwest wall.  You also see a pitted battle axe, the Geijon disk, the Herachio disk, the Tillmont disk, the Hoy disk, the Karibeth disk, the blue Rtune disk, the Kerl disk, the Lilabell disk, the Suntzhu disk, the Cyral disk, the Vivina disk, the Kilthal disk and the Jiania disk.

Obvious exits: west, up

Kilthal glances at Orphia.

Ekal's jaw drops.

You see Orphia Veswind the Academic.
She appears to be a Human from Chastonia.
She is shorter than average and appears to be young and robust.  She has pale grey eyes and dark skin.  She has long, curly dull brown hair tied up in a bun with a suede twist.  She has an angular face and a sharp nose.
She is in good shape.
She is holding a thick tome bound in ivy-patterned leather in her left hand.
She is wearing a set of simple round silver earrings, a series of multicolored interlocking rings suspended from thin silver chain, a pair of copper-framed spectacles, a heavy russet wool dress with slashes of cream at the hems and sleeves, a blue-jeweled heavy gold ring, a small bronze lantern, and a pair of soft leather slippers.

Cyral removes a bright green apple-shaped lollipop from in his veniom-tooled harness.

Drigore grins at Orphia.

You point at Orphia.

Speaking to Orphia, Cyral asks, "Let's start over?"

Torverner glances at Orphia.

Speaking to Orphia, Kerl says, "Lets discuss this... we can't seem to keep you dead."

Rtune asks, "How's that fire feel?"

Rtune peers quizzically at Orphia.

Godefroy says, "Indeed.  We seem at another impasse."

Orphia smiles too widely, huge white teeth with glistening points revealed by her retracting lips.

Speaking to Orphia, Mynalia says, "We won't let you past."

Bristenn slowly notes, "..I'm not entirely fond of those teeth, there."

 [Roll result: 125 (open d100: 6)]
Bristenn feints to the left, the shadow tendril buys the ruse and moves to block the blow that never came!

A glistening shadow tendril is discovered by Drigore!

Kilthal swings a tempestuous airy gladius at a glistening shadow tendril!
  AS: +538 vs DS: +201 with AvD: +33 + d100 roll: +3 = +373
   ... and hits for 105 points of damage!

Bristenn swings a wide-bladed cresset sword at a glistening shadow tendril!
  AS: +585 vs DS: +178 with AvD: +42 + d100 roll: +8 = +457
   ... and hits for 203 points of damage!
The shadow tendril slumps silently to the floor, his red eyes fading to grey.

Orphia says, "You continue to assault me."

Speaking to Orphia, Cyral asks, "So what would it take for us to let this go?"

Herachio asks, "That Tendril is you?"

Speaking to Orphia, you say, "You haven't ceased trying to eat us either."

Rtune says, "Lets not git hasty."

Speaking to Orphia, Cyral explains, "Tendrils are scary.. they overreacted, of course."

Orphia gazes thoughtfully at a rolling stone door.

Speaking to Orphia, Godefroy says, "You cannot fault us for fighting back.  After all that has happened, you give us little reason for trust."

Orphia says, "The weapon, he waits beyond."

You peer quizzically at Orphia.

Orphia reaches out and touches a rolling stone door.

Rtune nods at Orphia.

Orphia says, "The door, warded.  How foolish.  We are stronger than these wards.  I am stronger."

Speaking to Orphia, Kerl says, "An old mage is an old mage... we have several here in fact."

Pereus gestures at Orphia.
Pereus appears to be less clearly focused.
Cloudy wisps swirl about Orphia.
  CS: +348 - TD: +300 + CvA: +25 + d100: +74 == +147
 Warding failed!
The wisps solidify into thick strands of webbing that tighten about her body!

Rtune says, "Me lit yew on fire like a wraith."

Archales asks, "Are you stronger than webs?"

Orphia says, "We are."

Speaking to Orphia, you say, "This is our defense line."

Godefroy says, "You may be strong, but I do not think even you can overcome such magicks."

Orphia lifts her hand to the open air of the doorway.  Sparks of electricity crackle over her fingers, momentarily revealing talons of shadow.

Orphia says, "I wish to end any threats to me, and to my kin."

Bristenn [General]: "Carellus, I hope you're hurrying."

Rtune says, "Wake up shadow rat."

Orphia turns to face Rtune.

Orphia points at Rtune.

Explosive burst wreaths Rtune's body in blue flames!
+136 Hits.

* Rtune drops dead at your feet!

* Rtune just croaked!

Mynalia glances at Rtune.

Vilkea says, "There are other ways, but you leave us little choice when you treat us as food."

Orphia kneels and tears off one of the body's legs, then begins messily feasting upon it.  Her mouth opens too wide, and the leg disappears down her gullet, bones and all.

Orphia says, "Delightful."

Kerl blinks.

Orphia turns around.

Auragin gestures at Rtune.
Weaving her hands as she speaks the words of her prayer, Auragin is momentarily mesmerized by the silver nimbus that her movements create.  The world around you takes on a dream-like quality and the nimbus at Auragin's fingertips turns into the image of a slender blade.  Grasping it by the hilt, Auragin plunges the silver light into Rtune's chest and the shock of its impact fills Rtune with life. As Rtune draws his first breath, the blade becomes ethereal and disperses into the air.
Rtune seems slightly different.

Rtune stands up.

Orphia returns her attentions to the door.

Kerl yells, "Close the door, it's too strong!"

Abruptly, Orphia's body dissolves into thousands of tendrils of shadow that streak through the open space.  The moment they are out of sight, the door rolls shut behind her.

Kerl glances at a rolling stone door.

Vivina exclaims, "She's in!"

Rolfard [General]: "Can't fog the deaders, and golems are preventing drags."

Kerl says, "If it comes out, we kill it."

An earsplitting screech echoes through the cavern, and the ground shakes underfoot!

(We all fall over.)

Eahlstan says, "The most qualfied one here to handle the remains of the Duskborn would be Magister Svala."

Speaking to Eahlstan, Raelee says, "However, I am neither the largest or physically strongest.  You.  Grab it."

You say, "Be sure to make Carellus prove himself again."

Bristenn yells, "Carellus?"

Divone glances at Mynalia.

Mynalia glances at Divone.

Bristenn pounds a rolling stone door with his fist, but nothing happens.

[Vornavian Coast, Caverns]
The cavern comes to a dead end to the east, after sloping very sharply down.  The water that has pooled here is rather deep and extremely cold.  The floor slopes upward to the west, and a tunnel enters this room high in the southwest wall.  You also see the translucent Ekal disk, the Tillmont disk, the Lilabell disk, the Jiania disk, the Vivina disk, the Cyral disk, the Herachio disk, the Suntzhu disk, the Kilthal disk, the Karibeth disk, the Hoy disk, the Geijon disk, the Kerl disk and a pitted battle axe.

Obvious exits: west, up

Bristenn urgently shouts, "Carellus!"

Raelee distractedly asks, "... how much information has he given you regarding his processes, Mynalia?"

Speaking to Raelee, Mynalia says, "Not enough for me to continue in his stead, if..."

Rtune just tried to kick the door!

You bash at the stone door with your rune-scribed maul.

Speaking to Raelee, Mynalia says, "He may have left some notes back in our quarters, if it comes to that."

You bash at the stone door with your rune-scribed maul.

Rtune says, "Kicking seemed to speed things up afore."

You say, "We can break it down."

Metadi bashes the stone door with his rolaren-capped sledgehammer.

You bash at the stone door with your rune-scribed maul.

You bash at the stone door with your rune-scribed maul.

Metadi bashes the stone door with his rolaren-capped sledgehammer.

The door gives way with a quiet groan.

Herachio makes a quick gesture while calling upon the powers of the elements...

Metadi says, "Or that."

Bristenn takes a few steps back.

Rtune says, "There we go."

You peer through a rolling stone door and see...

[Vornavian Coast, Burned Cavern]
Empty, save for the carefully skeletal oil barrels placed around the perimeter of the small room, the low jagged ceiling and rough walls that enclose the dark cavern nonetheless form nearly intolerably close confines.  Conspicuously absent is the oppressive dampness that pervades the larger caverns just outside the rolling stone door.  You also see a shard of black dreamstone.
Also here: Carellus who is lying down
Obvious paths: none

Divone says, "It's just him.."

Sir Bristenn's group just went through a rolling stone door.

Obvious paths: none

Archales says, "He's down."

You pull Carellus to his feet.

Speaking to Carellus, Metadi says, "Prove your identity."

Whisker picks up a shard of black dreamstone.

Rtune asks, "Yew is yew?"

Rtune peers quizzically at Carellus.

Bristenn walks towards Carellus.

Bristenn sheathes his cresset sword in his ironwood scabbard.

Bristenn kneels down.

You see Carellus Ranheles the Sage.
He appears to be a Human from Mestanir.
He is taller than average and appears to be in his golden years.  He has red-rimmed sea green eyes and ivory skin.  He has a wealth of long, snowy hair framing his face in gleaming coils.  He has a lined face, a crooked nose and a short tapered beard.
He has some minor cuts and bruises on his left leg, minor cuts and bruises on his back, and some minor cuts and bruises on his right leg.
He is wearing a burned mantle, a pair of cracked spectacles, a tattered singed robe, and a pair of worn leather sandals.

Carellus says, "My staff burned."

Karibeth says, "He's fairly burnt."

Karibeth frowns.

Carellus makes a wheezing sound.

Cryheart says, "So is your mantle."

Cryheart nods at Carellus.

Carellus says, "I think..."

Carellus coughs.

Speaking slowly to Carellus, Bristenn observes, "..you look a mess."

Speaking to Carellus, Metadi asks, "How does your apprentice feel about her name?"

Speaking to Metadi, Carellus says, "Hates... it."

Metadi nods with satisfaction.

Carellus points at Whisker.

Carellus says, "The stone.  The stone."

Rtune says, "Yah telepathic critter could never discern thats."

Whisker offers Carellus a shard of black dreamstone.

Speaking to Whisker, Godefroy says, "I think that's the remains."

Carellus accepts Whisker's black dreamstone.

Pulses of blue-black radiance travel through the dreamstone, following the path of Carellus's finger.

Bristenn blinks.

Bristenn settles his gaze on Carellus, watching him intently.

Raelee admits, "Smaller than I expected."

You say, "It must have burned brightly to not spill its blood."

Bristenn distractedly agrees, "..indeed."

Carellus says, "Haven't the magic to prove myself."

Speaking to Carellus, Metadi says, "But, if ye announce any plans tae turn it intae plinite, we're taking it back."

Carellus says, "Will need to craft... another staff first."

Carellus makes a wheezing sound.

Speaking to Metadi, Raelee says, "... I would welcome that, actually."

Metadi squints at Raelee.

Carellus asks, "Which one of you should have the remains, in the meantime?"

Speaking to Raelee, Metadi says, "Ye would."

Divone points at Raelee.

You say, "If this is indeed dead...do we go to Icemule or Teras next for its Brother and Sister."

Divone says, "The Magister."

Vilkea glances between Metadi and Raelee.

Metadi says, "And aye, give it tae her."

Bristenn slowly notes, "..I'd say either Magister Svala or the Prelate."

Carellus takes off a pair of cracked spectacles.

Metadi mutters, "If we see squids again, we'll ken who tae blame."

Ekal asks, "So the dreamstone is the remains of a duskborne?"

Metadi nods at Ekal.

Carellus glances sadly down at his spectacles.

Carellus says, "How disappointing.  I've had those since the Wizardwaste."

Speaking to Raelee, Godefroy says, "I'm perfectly content with you holding on to it."

Raelee nods at Godefroy.

Speaking slowly to Carellus, Raelee asks, "... since the wizardwaste...?"

Carellus says, "I would feel it unfair to take them."

Speaking quietly to Mynalia, Carellus asks, "Quite the adventure, wasn't that?"

Speaking seriously to Carellus, Raelee asks, "How old are you, precisely?"

Speaking to Carellus, Mynalia says, "That's one way of putting it."

Mynalia nods at Carellus.

Speaking quietly to Raelee, Carellus says, "Old enough."

Speaking to Carellus, Raelee says, "I said... precisely."

Speaking to Raelee, Carellus says, "And I am precisely old enough."

Carellus chuckles.

Raelee squints at Carellus.

Speaking amusedly to Raelee, Bristenn mumbles, "Don't anger the burnt man."

Carellus says, "My apprentice and I skirted the boundaries of the Wizardwaste during our travels."

Vilkea adds, "She doesn't like not getting answers."

You say, "Our duskborn friends don't have any sense of humor."

Speaking slowly to Raelee, Bristenn adds, "The very burnt, very old and venerable man."

Speaking to Carellus, Raelee says, "A visitor, not a witness then."

Carellus turns to face Mynalia.

Speaking to Mynalia, Carellus says, "For now."

Carellus offers Mynalia a shard of black dreamstone.

Mynalia accepts Carellus's black dreamstone.

Raelee squints at Mynalia.

Mynalia brushes her fingers lightly against her black dreamstone.

Carellus says, "We shall not have the convenience of these caverns to strike at the other two, I fear."

Mynalia put a shard of black dreamstone in her brushed wool satchel.

Mynalia flips the cover and re-adjusts it over the opening of her brushed wool satchel, and fiddles with the clasp for a moment.

Vilkea says, "They are not in this town."

Speaking quietly to Mynalia, Raelee says, "The time for head clearing is over for you, now."

You say, "Perhaps they fled to regions that speak to their strengths. They are born from nightmares, they are not likely all th' same entirely."

Raelee nods slowly at Mynalia.

Mynalia nods at Raelee.

Carellus says, "However, as my identity is rightly suspect, we ought to wait until I can prove that I am who I say I am."

Speaking quietly to Raelee, Mynalia says, "I understand."

Speaking to Carellus, Divone says, "...And you have a new staff."

Speaking to Carellus, Godefroy says, "I imagine it will take some time to remake your staff, then."
Bristenn scratches his chin.
J>'One could speculate Solhaven was this Duskborns choice because of th' water, Icemule it's cold, and Teras it's volcanos
You say, "One could speculate Solhaven was this Duskborns choice because of th' water, Icemule it's cold, and Teras it's volcanos."

Speaking to Carellus, Divone asks, "You did say you needed it replaced, correct?"

You shrug.

Carellus says, "I craft my own staves.  Others simply will not do."

Carellus says, "I must admit, I am coming to a fondness for illthorn."

Bristenn tiredly murmurs, "Alright, let's reconvene in the Lance.  Possibly-Not-Carellus needs medical attention, regardless."

Cryheart nods at Bristenn.

Your surroundings blur into a white fog . . .

[Courtyard]
A well maintained and healthy garden occupies the entirety of the courtyard.  The air here is cool and crisp, but the bulk of the monastery shelters you from wind and makes the air bracing instead of chilling.  In the center of the garden is a natural spring bubbling up several inches above the surface of the encircling pool of crystal clear water.  A large stone and iron gate blocks the entrance to the monastery flanked by a statue of a woman carrying a crystal staff and a set of crystalline keys facing a second statue of a kneeling young man bedecked in battle-worn black chain armor.  You also see a large fel tree and a polished marble bench with some stuff on it.

Obvious paths: west

Divone nods at Bristenn.

Speaking simply to Bristenn, Godefroy says, "You missed."

Mynalia glances around the area.

Cryheart says, "By that much."

Cryheart grins.

Speaking slowly to Godefroy, Bristenn agrees, "..so I have."

Speaking to Bristenn, Carellus says, "Congratulations.  I believe that is a record distance."

Carellus says, "Perhaps my wards interacted oddly with your powers."

Bristenn faces a statue of a woman carrying a crystal staff and a set of crystalline keys facing a second statue of a kneeling young man bedecked in battle-worn black chain armor and renders a sharp salute with his steel heaume.

WHO
Active Players: 425

Bristenn amusedly mumbles, "Alright, let's return to Solhaven, then."

[Solhaven, North Market]
The press of the crowd is little diminished by the late hour.  Peddlers wheel small carts, pushing their way through and splitting the air with their shouts.  Delectable scents of baked goods grace the air, drifting from the wrought iron oven of the Muffinsmith's stall at the corner of the market.  Before it, a blond thanot bench embellished with bas-relief pelican feathers glistens in the starlight thanks to a coat of varnish.  On the opposite end of the market, the Belts booth and the Small Blades stand laze beneath the night sky, still open for custom.  You also see a drunken sailor, a pure white sparrowhawk that is flying around and a copper-banded green oak barrel.
Also here: Sir Cryheart, Ekal, Cyral, Kateerina, Godefroy, Magister Raelee, Vivina, Lilabell, Suntzhu, Lady Divone, Whisker, Vilkea, Pereus, Kerl, Lord Chivalrous, Karibeth, Tillmont, Herachio, Drigore, Jiania, Hoy, Archales, Lord Balantine, Kilthal, Mynalia, Lady Misun, Torverner, Great Lady Auragin, Sir Eahlstan, Shirkon, Belnia, Sir Metadi, Carellus, Sir Bristenn, Inpaneyah who is sitting, Kasia, Elicai who is sitting, Aniara
Obvious paths: north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west

A series of tremors emanates from the direction of the Vornavian Coast.  Plumes of dust and debris shoot up into the air as a segment of ground atop the cliffs caves in.
 
Godefroy says, "...and not a bit too soon."

Carellus quietly says, "The fires needed to be very hot."

Carellus coughs.

Speaking to Kasia, Eahlstan says, "One of three duskborn are no more."

Auragin whispers to the group, "If any are interested, there shall be a Commune at the Shore of Dreams in twenty minutes."

Carellus indicates his cracked spectacles with a smile.

Carellus sighs.

Carellus says, "And I fear the other Duskborn will have felt their sister's death."

Cryheart nods at Carellus.

Chivalrous says, "That seems almost certain."

Carellus says, "We have some assurances that flame will do the trick, at the least."

Ekal asks, "But is it dead?  or merely reduced to an inantimate state?"

Speaking to Carellus, Metadi says, "Someone made the point that the one here may hae been because it preferred water."

Carellus nods at Metadi.

Cryheart says, "Of course, be mindful of all the lives ye saved as well."

Cryheart nods at Carellus.

Godefroy says, "More likely, I think, that they simply give one another a wide range upon which to... ah... feed."

Carellus says, "They are urges and fears made flesh."

You say, "Rather nasty demons."

Carellus says, "And now, made to stone."

Godefroy says, "Not quite demons, either, I don't think."

Bristenn tiredly notes, "Yes, excellent work, friends and allies."

Carellus looks thoughtfully at Mynalia.

Auragin [General]: "For any interested, we shall be holding a Commune at the Shore of Dreams in fourteen minutes. Please join us in North Market, where Mohrgan shall take us to Ronan's altar."

Cryheart asks, "Ye hae enough coins and gear to refurnish ye self?"

Cryheart glances at Carellus.

Carellus quietly says, "I should hope so."

Cryheart nods at Carellus.

Carellus says, "I am, alas, not precisely filled with a spirit of triumph."

Raelee squints at Carellus.

Carellus put a pair of cracked spectacles in his singed robe.

Speaking to Carellus, Godefroy says, "Ah.  You're settling into Vornavis well, then."

Carellus says, "I trust there will be no problem with me taking my rest?  I will submit to imprisonment, if necessary."

Divone frowns.

Cryheart says, "I dinnae think that should be necessary."

Speaking to Carellus, you say, "Th' duskborn only seemed to imitate visual aspects of its shifting, not personality."

You say, "As I said, they had no sense of humor."

You grin.

Cryheart says, "We shall all speak for ye, if ye wish, and if that comes to that possibility."

Speaking to Carellus, Raelee says, "... Carellus."

Mynalia says, "You're alive, and we captured the essence of the creature as we had planned to.  I'd say we would be right to count tonight as a success."

Carellus shuffles off, a slight limp evident in his gait.

Speaking to Mynalia, Godefroy asks, "You will keep us updated with his status, and inform us of any changes?"

Divone smiles at Mynalia.

Speaking to Mynalia, Raelee says, "Mynalia..."

Speaking to Raelee, Mynalia asks, "Yes, Magister Svala?"

Speaking slowly to Mynalia, Raelee says, "Do inform your master that there are matters he and I need to discuss... before we attempt this again."

Speaking to Raelee, Mynalia says, "I'll be sure to pass along the message."

Speaking to Mynalia, Raelee says, "And find something more secure than a woolen satchel to store that stone in."
