Ivastaen 4-5, 5118

by Leafiara Autumnwind of the TownCrier


Summary

  • Outside Moot Hall, Balley reports seeing visions of a figure in a grey robe standing before her in the area, though nobody else can see the figure. Stormyrain at first speculates that Jastev is speaking to her, but after Balley adds that the figure has silver hair and sanguine runes on her hand, and is speaking to her in her native tongue of sylvan, others think that it might be Stormy herself; Ysharra also brings up Gosaena, who wears grey robes and has silver hair as well.
  • After that vision fades, Balley borrows Stormy's scrying bowl and sees a vision of Naimorai trapped in the past, where she appears to be hiding from Chastonian soldiers. Another vision shows her encountering a man named Peter, presumed to later become Pylasar, and asking for his help while looking toward a fiery red glow from a a tower on the horizon, presumed to be emitted by the Talon of Toullaire.


Log

The Silver-Haired Sanguine-Runed Sylvan-Speaking Seer?

The sky begins to fill with huge clouds, dark and grey on the bottom, pale and white atop, their puffy crowns ascending toward the heavens.

A faint rumble of thunder sounds on the horizon.

A cool breeze stirs outside of Moot Hall.

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 large purple wooden barrel and a bone-framed bulletin board.

Balley softly says, "The wind stirs."

Balley's concentration shifts and becomes more focused as she slightly tilts an ear in a particular direction.

The noise and crap of spells in Town Square Central seems to fade as you step away from the area.

From nearby, you hear Saverik yell, "Castin wizardly blurs n guards in TSC, comin get em!"

Pukk yells, "Keep those noisy spells to a quiet roar please!"

From nearby, you hear Telum yell, "Pukk you!"

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Telum!"

Cruxophim yells, "Pukk off!"

Pukk yells, "You Telum Cruxy!"

Madmountan glances at Balley.

Someone shouts nearby, "Yeah! You Telum good!"

For a brief moment, Balley seems to be staring off into the distance.

Cryheart glances at Balley.

You glance at Balley.

Evician glances at Balley.

Florania takes a moment to observe Balley.

Qwentara raises an eyebrow in Balley's direction.

Pukk rubs Balley tenderly.

Osloe glances at Balley.

Shinann raises an eyebrow in Balley's direction.

Evician asks, "Balley?"

Balley shivers.

Speaking quietly to Balley, Pukk says, "Must be that bad brownie."

Zosopage moves to stand in front of Balley.

Maylan sniffs at Balley.

Gorku glances at Balley.

Cryheart rubs Balley tenderly.

Stormyrain gives a sidelong glance at Balley.

Balley softly says, "There is something around here."

Pukk quietly says, "She ate some bad brownies Cryheart made."

Cruxophim levels his gaze at Balley, staring intently at her without blinking his eyes.

Balley blinks.

Speaking gently to Balley, Florania inquires, "Are you alright--oh?"

Florania tilts her head toward Balley, examining her intently as the tip of one ear twitches briefly.

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain asks, "What did you see?"

Balley shivers.

Osloe peers quizzically at Balley.

You take a moment to observe everything you can about Balley.

Speaking to Pukk, Maags asks, "He fed those to someone else?"

Maags gawks at Cryheart.

Balley softly says, "I am not sure yet."

Speaking to Balley, Qwentara asks, "Besides a bunch of goofs yelling back and forth?"

Florania rests a gentle hand on Balley's arm.

Speaking quietly to Cryheart, Pukk says, "I hope you didn't poison her."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags exclaims, "We needs to has a talk Sir!"

Balley softly says, "I see a grey robed figure."

Cryheart says, "I found them by Arcane."

Cryheart nods at Maags.

Balley softly says, "It is close."

Cryheart says, "And ye were the only one."

Osloe asks, "Where?"

Balley softly says, "It is near."

Cryheart nods at Maags.

Balley shivers.

Evician asks, "What is?"

Stormyrain nods slowly at Balley.

Cryheart turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Pukk quietly says, "Balley is scaring me now."

Evia says, "Something dark, a guess."

Speaking affably to Balley, Cruxophim reasons, "At least they're not nekked."

Balley softly says, "There is a figure watching me."

A gleam of silver washes across Balley's eyes once more, but only briefly, rippling like moonlit water.

Balley softly says, "Watching us."

Xorus says, "Hmm. Grey robes."

Qwentara peers quizzically at Balley.

Melikor gazes with interest at Balley.

Shinann looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Evician glances at Balley.

Shinann glances at Stormyrain.

Maags looks at Balley with concern.

Speaking grimly to Balley, Cruxophim reminds, "The only thing worse than a necromancer is a nekkedromancer. Some exceptions apply, of course."

Thrassus looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Cruxophim cocks his head at Balley.

Speaking quietly to Stormyrain, Florania wonders, "Is that ordinary for a seer?"

Zosopage looks at Balley with concern.

Balley softly says, "Grey robed figure is around and here."

Cryheart glances at Balley.

Gorku glances at Balley.

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

Lylia gestures.

Lylia appears to be keenly aware of her surroundings.

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain says, "Jastev."

Stormyrain nods encouragingly at Balley.

Dalabrac says, "I do not detect a presence."

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain says, "He's speaking to you."

Balley softly says, "I am not sure who it is."

Wyrmpoint quietly says, "I'm not exactly sure what a nekkedromancer is, but I'm not sure I want to find out either."

Cryheart says, "Stone is effective over a long distance."

Balley softly says, "The figure is back."

Speaking heartily to Cruxophim, Chamorr says, "Sheesh, you is scary wif yer clothes on."

Maags says, "And close ones too."

Wyrmpoint quietly says, "I'm not exactly sure what a nekkedromancer is, but I'm not sure I want to find out either."

Cryheart says, "Stone is effective over a long distance."

Balley softly says, "The figure is back."

Speaking dubiously to Chamorr, Cruxophim inquires, "Are you coming on to me?"

Balley frets.

Balley softly says, "He is here."

Xorus tilts his head slightly and stares straight ahead as he murmurs softly under his breath...

Xorus gestures.

Xorus appears to be keenly aware of his surroundings.

Cryheart rubs Balley tenderly.

Balley softly says, "I see him clearly."

Cryheart says, "Be strong."

Maags gestures while calling upon the lesser spirits for aid...

Speaking to Cryheart, Stormyrain says, "From the light in her eyes, and the grey cloak--I would suspect it's our Lord Jastev. It's how he has visited us in the past--but we will see."

Maags gestures.

The evanescent shield shrouding you fades briefly.

Ayumia is discovered by Maags!

Shadowthrall is discovered by Maags!

Balley frets.

Mirage-like distortions surround Shadowthrall as she prepares a spell...

Shadowthrall gestures.

Shadowthrall suddenly disappears.

Balley frets.

Thrassus turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Cryheart says, "Ye hae support here, Balley."

Balley takes a deep breath.

The gypsy fortuneteller agrees to consult the future for Lylia. Silver changes hands in a flash and she gathers her energies a moment.

The gypsy fortuneteller then spreads her cloak upon the ground and sits gracefully, tucking her dainty feet demurely under her hem.

The gypsy fortuneteller gazes up at Lylia for a time and then she rapidly shuffles a deck of strangely patterned cards. From time to time one card leaps out almost of its own will and flutters onto the cloak and she pauses to examine it carefully.

After several cards have done this, she stops and gazes intently at the pattern they form in front of her.

The gypsy fortuneteller leans close to Lylia and whispers something in her ear.

Lylia smiles cautiously, as if not sure how to interpret what has been said.

Evician smiles at Balley.

Balley slowly empties her lungs.

Maags says, "And protections."

Speaking amusedly to Maags, Cruxophim wonders, "What were you hoping to accomplish with that? OF course there are invisible people here."

Dalabrac says, "She's a fraud."

Speaking dryly to a gypsy fortuneteller, Lylia remarks, "So I have heard. Thank you."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maags says, "She said HE was here."

Speaking heartily to Cruxophim, Chamorr says, "Good grief."

Zosopage looks at Balley with concern.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maags exclaims, "Didnts mean to find them!"

Balley softly exclaims, "The figure is here!"

Speaking to Dalabrac, Evician asks, "So you pretend to know the minds of others do you?"

Balley softly says, "Right here."

Florania raises an eyebrow in Balley's direction.

Cryheart says, "Tis a vision."

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Speaking gently to Maags, Cruxophim reminds, "If it's who I think you're referring to, I don't think that will work."

Cryheart asks, "Where exactly, Balley?"

Goldstr turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Madmountan squints at Balley.

Speaking to Balley, Lylia says, "We are in the midst of a crowd. A great many figures are here."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maags says, "Donts think I reallies hurt anyone."

Speaking gently to Balley, Cruxophim coaxes, "Can you make out any more details?"

Stormyrain nods at Shinann.

Cruxophim gives Balley a strong, encouraging smile.

Evician says, "Ignorance is not bliss, I assure you.."

Speaking to a large purple wooden barrel, Evia asks, "You in there mysterious figure?"

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain says, "I feel it too."

Balley softly says, "Do you not see the figure. Wearing Sinuous grey robes, silver hair in a cowl. Scars on the hand and sanguine runes."

Stormyrain raises her eyebrow, the dark bloodjewel half-ring set within only enhancing her skeptical expression.

Cryheart says, "Nae yet."

Speaking to Evia, Maags says, "If so it would be Pylasar."

Florania uneasily says, "I can't say that I do, no."

Maylan shrugs at Balley.

The gypsy fortuneteller smiles at you and whispers, "I know many things unseen."

Evician says, "No we do not Balley."

Stormyrain folds her hands.

Thrassus ignores a gypsy fortuneteller.

Cruxophim looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Severine stares at a gypsy fortuneteller.

Osloe looks over at Balley and shakes his head.

Rhayveign starts chortling at a gypsy fortuneteller.

Balley frets.

Pukk quietly says, "Balley is more of a seer than you."

Balley softly says, "He is here."

Speaking to Maags, Evia says, "That would be funner."

Cryheart asks, "Can ye see the figure, gypsy?"

Pukk scowls at a gypsy fortuneteller.

Cryheart glances at a gypsy fortuneteller.

Balley softly says, "Yes."

Speaking evenly to Balley, Stormyrain asks, "Sanguine runes? Silver hair?"

Qwentara peers quizzically at Balley.

Speaking to Balley, Qwentara asks, "Who?"

Stormyrain traces the lines of her sanguine runes.

(Balley points over in front of her.)

Speaking to a gypsy fortuneteller, Maylan says, "You shut your lying mouth."

Cryheart turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Stormyrain runs a hand through her lustrous pale silver hair, trying to make herself presentable.

Balley softly says, "He is there."

Zosopage moves to stand in front of Balley.

Balley softly says, "The figure."

Cryheart says, "He is trying to trick ye, Balley."

Stormyrain furrows her brow.

Speaking urgently to Balley, Florania asks, "'There' where?"

Stormyrain turns around.

Cryheart surveys his surroundings carefully.

Beldannon softly says, "Maybe someone needs to be committed."

Florania glances suspiciously around the area.

Stormyrain turns around.

Stormyrain pulls the pampilion-trimmed lambskin hood of her ebon lambskin jacket over her head, gaining coverage from the rainfall.

Balley shivers.

Stormyrain raises an eyebrow in Balley's direction.

Balley softly says, "It is a female figure."

Ysharra says, "If we had everyone committed for visions we'd have no one left to be our custodians."

Cryheart raises an eyebrow in Balley's direction.

Stormyrain looks over at Shinann and shakes her head.

Balley softly says, "Silver locks drift and flow around her head like water."

Cryheart asks, "Female ye say?"

Cryheart says, "Hmmm."

Balley softly says, "I can hear her."

Goldstr moves over to Balley and stands ready to protect her from attack.

Maags turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Cryheart asks, "Naimorai?"

Balley softly says, "Speaking my native tongue."

Gorku deeply asks, "And she is here?"

Balley softly says, "I can not make out what she is saying."

Speaking evenly to Balley, Stormyrain asks, "Sylvan you say?"

Qwentara says, "Not Grishom then."

Cruxophim softly murmurs, "I see... a stormy climate... and rain."

A faint silver light passes along Balley's eyes and then it fades.

Evician asks, "Is she speaking to you Balley?"

Telum says, "Seems that way."

Severine looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Balley shivers.

Balley softly says, "She is gone."


A Stormy Sight? Gosaena?

Balley searches around for a moment.

Florania rests a gentle hand on Balley's arm.

Zosopage rubs Balley tenderly.

Cryheart says, "Interesting."

Evia says, "So its not a hear-a-vision, just a see-a-vision."

Balley frets.

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain asks, "Balley. Look at my hands, do the runes match the ones on my hand? Does the hair look like mine?"

Tarazota peers quizzically at Balley.

Florania glances between Balley and Stormyrain.

(Stormyrain holds her hands out to Balley for inspection.)

Speaking dubiously to Stormyrain, Cruxophim teases, "It couldn't possibly be you."

Cruxophim looks at Stormyrain and breaks into a cheeky grin.

Maags cocks her head at Stormyrain.

Ysharra says, "Lady Death, perhaps."

Qwentara glances between Stormyrain and Balley.

Balley softly says, "Yes."

Balley shivers.

Balley softly says, "They were like yours Stormyrain."

Gorku glances between Stormyrain and Balley.

Cryheart glances at Stormyrain.

Stormyrain furrows her brow, her face tensed in some inner conflict.

Stormyrain evenly says, "Interesting."

Balley softly says, "The flowing silver hair and grey robes were very very vivid."

Speaking evenly to Balley, Cruxophim inquires, "Is she bathing? Asking for a friend?"

Florania speculatively asks, "A mimic?"

Speaking to Stormyrain, Evician asks, "Interesting good, interesting indifferent?"

Balley softly says, "She touched my forehead and spoke to me, I could not make out what she said."

Stormyrain says, "Silver haired sylvan speaking woman in grey robes of Jastev--perhaps--with sanguine runes like mine on her hands."

Speaking to Balley, Thrassus asks, "So you basically saw the captain standing there?"

Stormyrain gets a blank look on her face.

Cryheart glances at Balley.

Balley softly says, "No."

Balley softly says, "It was not Stormy."

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Speaking to Thrassus, Zosopage says, "I highly doubt it was her."

Gorku deeply asks, "Though, quite similar?"

Evia says, "Ayohwayoh."

Balley softly says, "I do not know who it was."

Florania quietly asks, "But trying to appear similar? To give some comfort perhaps?"

Ysharra says, "Gosaena appears in robes of grey, and silvered hair."

Speaking to Thrassus, Lylia says, "Dressed differently, at the very least. Perhaps she saw a vision of her in the future, or the past."

Osloe nods slowly at Balley.

Evician says, "And with a scythe."

Evician nods at Ysharra.

Ysharra says, "And she also has the power of Clairvoyance."

Speaking to Ysharra, Stormyrain asks, "Does she have sanguine runes on her hands?"

Stormyrain furrows her brow.

Ysharra shrugs at Stormyrain.

Speaking nonchalantly to Stormyrain, Cruxophim remarks, "Perhaps you are becoming Death."

Xorus nods at Ysharra.

Speaking to Ysharra, Stormyrain offers, "She does sit with my Lord often."

Speaking to Ysharra, Xorus says, "That was my thought."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Ysharra says, "I've never seen or heard tell of Lady Death, personally. But what I've heard from her stories suggests the rest."

Speaking to Balley, Zosopage asks, "Did she say anything at all to you?"

Balley softly says, "The visions were clear."

Stormyrain nods slowly.

Speaking to Ysharra, Stormyrain says, "Anything is possible."

Cryheart asks, "Can you recall what she spoke?"

Cryheart glances at Balley.

Madmountan says, "Too many of you people see things."

Madmountan chuckles.

Ysharra says, "I believe an average of ten crazy things before breakfast. I still maintain my skepticism, too."

Speaking to Madmountan, Jeril says, "Maybe they are all just crazy."

Ysharra winks at Stormyrain.

Growing tense, Balley's limbs stiffen, her legs locking, and she slows her movements. Her eyes begin to flutter.

Cryheart glances at Balley.

Cruxophim begins a careful examination of Balley -- he takes her pulse, checks her temperature, and checks for broken bones or any other ailments.

Pukk glances at Balley.

Zosopage looks at Balley with concern.

Maylan pokes Balley in the ribs.

Thrassus looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Dalabrac blinks at Balley.

Florania sets about preparing Balley to be as presentable as possible.

Telum exclaims, "She's seizing!"

Speaking to Madmountan, Kipara says, "Yeah, like this one time I saw a man bring entrails to a court trial."

Cruxophim gently requests, "Give her some space, please?"

Goldstr moves to stand in front of Balley.

Balley softly says, "I can not, I could not make it out. It was my native tongue but it was very faint and distant."

Stormyrain nods faintly at Shinann.

Pukk quietly says, "Give Balley some room, give her some air."

Telum exclaims, "Someone put a belt in her mouth!"

Telum screams!

Cruxophim settles his gaze on Balley, watching her intently.

Stormyrain takes a moment to observe Balley.

Ysharra says, "If it is She Who is Death, you won't hear much said, I believe."

Thrassus asks, "A fit of some sort?"

Telum points at Balley.

Lylia removes a strong leather gag from in her wrap.

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Maylan blinks at Lylia.

Balley shivers.

Lylia shifts her eyes to Maylan.

Madmountan asks, "Can we get buckets and pour water on her?"

Maylan begins to flirt with Lylia.

Lylia put a strong leather gag in her wrap.

Speaking surreptitiously to Lylia, Cruxophim murmurs, "I won't ask."

Balley softly says, "I should not have warded my mind soo much."

Shinann asks, "In the rain?"

Shinann gazes up into the sky.

Shinann looks thoughtfully at Madmountan.

Lylia tersely says, "Good."

Speaking carefully to Balley, Florania says, "Either that or you should have warded it more."

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain offers, "Or you should have warded it more. One of the two."

Pukk gently pets the bloodhound, his big eyes staring up at him as he excitedly wags his tail!

Speaking quietly to a droopy-eyed tan bloodhound, Pukk says, "You will protect me."

Stormyrain nods in agreement at Florania.

Madmountan says, "More water can't hurt."

The flower girl casts an appraising glance, trying to decide whether or not to approach you.

Pukk gives the bloodhound a big hug, and he responds in kind by licking Pukk's face.

Florania flashes a quick grin.

Speaking to Pukk, Maags exclaims, "Yous will protect him!"

Speaking quietly to a pretty flower girl, Pukk says, "No not you."

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Pukk sits down next to a droopy-eyed tan bloodhound.

Pukk gives the bloodhound a big hug, and he responds in kind by licking Pukk's face.

Balley's concentration shifts and becomes more focused as she slightly tilts an ear in a particular direction.

Madmountan says, "I kid. I'm just gonna stand back and watch whatever the heck is going on here."

Cruxophim gives Balley a strong, encouraging smile.

Balley softly says, "I am to see."

Evia says, "Eeny meenie minie moe, ward my head, or ward my toe."

Balley softly says, "The words are hanging in the wind."

Cryheart turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Speaking uncertainly to a droopy-eyed tan bloodhound, Pukk says, "You watch that way and I will watch the other."

Balley softly says, "I am sorry I can not be more help."

Cryheart says, "That is ok."

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Balley softly says, "See."

Florania quietly says, "Maybe you will be able to make more of the visions in time."

Florania nods at Balley.

Speaking to Balley, Maags says, "Yous do not need apologize."


Balley's Visions: Second Round

Balley softly asks, "Anyone have a bowl?"

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Balley softly says, "I do not have mine."

Stormyrain grabs a cracked silver scrying bowl from a small pocket inside of her ebon lambskin jacket.

Ysharra removes a tiny goldfish bowl from in her carved ivory vasculum.

Balley softly says, "I need to see."

Stormyrain offers Balley a cracked silver scrying bowl.

Balley accepts Stormyrain's silver scrying bowl.

Balley takes out a small flask of water and pours it into her silver scrying bowl then stows the empty flask.

Ysharra says, "I have one with an octopus."

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain says, "Use mine."

Balley gazes into her silver scrying bowl, her expression growing blank and eyes unfocused. After a short while she blinks a few times and seems to be aware of her surroundings again.

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Ysharra says, "I don't think Stretch is particularly insightful, though."

Balley softly says, "I see many people."

Stormyrain gazes with interest at Balley.

Evia glances around the area.

Evia says, "Yep."

Lylia flatly says, "So do I."

Lylia surveys the area.

Zosopage says, "That may be us but in what context."

Balley softly says, "I see a dark cavern, lined with glimmering shards of plinite. A woman in a dark cloak is screaming and pounding her fists against a wall of invisible force."

Balley shivers.

You squint at Balley but she can't see you.

Qwentara says, "Naimorai."

Xorus says, "Intriguing."

Madmountan says, "Interesting."

Stormyrain looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Goldstr says, "Hmmm."

Lylia says, "Now that is something more specific..."

Balley softly says, "She is speaking my native tongue." [note: This becomes a point of confusion. The setting of her recent vision matches when Naimorai was trapped in the past, but since Balley is sylvan and Naimorai was only known to speak elven, there was some confusion over whether this is the same woman as before. Later visions would clarify that it was Naimorai, so a couple of possible explanations for her speaking in sylvan are that she did know language or that the "she" Balley is referring to is the robed seer, who might still be speaking to her even though she isn't seen in this vision.]

Gorku deeply says, "There we go."

Evician turns an inquisitive ear toward Balley.

Shinann asks, "What language?"

Stormyrain asks, "She is speaking sylvan?" [referring to Naimorai]

Florania quietly clarifies, "Which is your native tongue? Sylvan? Elven?"

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Stormyrain looks rather relaxed.

Balley softly says, "I see dozens of buildings and I hear the sound of heavy boots approaching."

Florania quietly acknowledges, "She did know some elven." [referring to Naimorai]

Zosopage says, "She is Sylvan." [referring to Balley]

Balley softly says, "She is speaking Sylvan." [referring to Naimorai]

Florania nods understandingly.

Balley shivers.

Balley gazes into her silver scrying bowl, her expression growing blank and eyes unfocused. After a short while she blinks a few times and seems to be aware of her surroundings again.

(Evician leans back against the barrel, and glances at Cruxophim then focuses on Balley.)

Shinann says, "Not Naimorai."

Madmountan asks, "No?"

Zosopage looks at Balley with concern.

Balley nods at Stormyrain.

Evia says, "She didn't have silver hair."

Balley softly says, "I see The dark cloaked woman hugs the shadows, clinging to the darkness of an alley while you see a handful of soldiers rush by. She pauses, holding her breath, waiting for the men to leave."

Shinann says, "She is human and she does speak elven. And she had black hair."

Madmountan says, "This may be a different vision."

Felita nods.

Florania nods once at Madmountan.

Shinann raises an eyebrow.

Madmountan says, "Once she grabbed the bowl she started seein Naimorai, not before."

Bushwack squeakily says, "It's possible to learn a language that isn't your native tongue, methinks."

Balley gazes into her silver scrying bowl, her expression growing blank and eyes unfocused. After a short while she blinks a few times and seems to be aware of her surroundings again.

Stormyrain asks, "Do we know it is Naimorai she is seeing now?"

Madmountan says, "Seems like it."

Shinann says, "No."

Shinann says, "Nothing sounds like her."

Evia says, "Huh."

Evia says, "A black cloak woman or something."

Stormyrain gives a sidelong glance at Lylia.

Stormyrain glances at her sanguine runes.

Madmountan says, "Uhh...Naimorai got lost in the plinite caverns while you folks were playing time warp central."

Balley softly says, "I see The sound of marching feet pass, and the woman peels away from the shadows, wisps of darkness coiling up from her arms and hands. She turns to exit the alley, when she bumps into a young man, knocking a tome from his hands that he had been reading while walking."

Maags says, "She will has silver hair in the future."

Madmountan says, "So yeah, it sounds like her."

Madmountan chuckles.

Thrassus snickers at Madmountan.

Qwentara agrees with Madmountan.

Stormyrain nods at Balley.

Xorus says, "This must be Naimorai hiding from Chastonian soldiers in the past."

Zosopage says, "Where is this alley...."

Osloe looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Florania looks thoughtfully at Xorus.

Shinann says, "Not impossible, I suppose."

Goldstr asks, "Da Swale?"

Stormyrain says, "That does sound like her, when she met Peter."

Shinann nods at Xorus.

Balley gazes into her silver scrying bowl, her expression growing blank and eyes unfocused. After a short while she blinks a few times and seems to be aware of her surroundings again.

Dergoatean agrees with Stormyrain.

Florania quietly inquires, "Peter?"

Stormyrain offers, "Pylasar."

Evia says, "Damn hard to shed off some Kestrels, en't it."

Bushwack squeakily asks, "Chaston... that name be familiar. Did we not take down a false prelate o' Koar by that name?"

Madmountan says, "That erases all doubt."

Florania nods at Bushwack.

Deckits says, "Unlikely, seems someone has been captured, likely someone who has similar thoughts to Malluch."

Stormyrain nods in agreement at Madmountan.

Shinann says, "I misunderstood. I thought she said was speaking Sylvan."

Speaking quietly to Bushwack, Raelee says, "Not related in this case."

Bushwack squeakily says, "Me's pretty sure Sokaz's staff is made o' the same stone that Chaston's statue we smashed was made of."

Speaking quietly to Bushwack, Florania says, "But Chastonia is a location--we are not speaking of Chaston."

Balley softly says, ""Oh! I am so sorry!" The young man's voice echoes in your mind, as he fumbled and dropped his book. The woman leaned down, picked up the book, and looked at a name scribbled within its pages. She smiled, looking up at the man. "Peter?" The woman asks...."

Speaking to Shinann, Stormyrain says, "The previous vision did. The silver-haired one with sanguine runes."

Speaking squeakily to Florania, Bushwack says, "Good to know."

Shinann says, "Ahh."

The voice of Cruxophim gently reminds, "Pylasar."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Shinann says, "I thought she was seeing the same woman."

Stormyrain nods at Shinann.

Shinann says, "My mistake."

Speaking to Shinann, Stormyrain says, "I thought so too at first."

Evician cocks his head at Balley.

Dergoatean whispers something to Balley.

Florania quietly says, "Pylasar, the town council member. The one who can traverse time, or so I have heard."

Speaking calmly to Florania, Cruxophim agrees, "The one and only."

Cruxophim looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Goldstr says, "Tinks a different Peter. Naimorai's first love was Peter dat she killed."

Xorus says, "Incredible."

Balley softly says, "You see the young man nod, taking back his book, smiling nervously, trying hard to even look at the woman in the eyes. "Yes?" His voice cracks. The woman smiles, "I'm going to need your help." Her eyes turn to the horizon, over the tops of the buildings, where a high tower stands, a fiery-red glow emanating from the highest peak. The vision fades."

Madmountan says, "Very interesting."

Balley blinks.

Xorus says, "Pylasar has always claimed to travel through time, but six hundred years..."

Lylia nods at Xorus.

Goldstr grins at Xorus.

Cruxophim nods absently at Xorus.

Speaking to Madmountan, Evia says, "Yes. Does it add up to when do we get to kill some crap though."

Speaking to Xorus, Madmountan says, "I find it more fascinating that Naimorai apparently travelled back that far."

Maags says, "If he can go even a day, why not centuries."

Xorus nods at Madmountan.

Balley shivers.

Balley gazes into her silver scrying bowl, her expression growing blank and eyes unfocused. After a short while she blinks a few times and seems to be aware of her surroundings again.

Xorus says, "That would have been Toullaire before it was destroyed."

Cruxophim moves to stand behind Balley.

Cruxophim rubs Balley tenderly.

Your invisibility falls.

You clench your jaw.

Balley shivers.

Xorus says, "The fiery glow in the tower would be the Talon."

You nod at Xorus.

Cruxophim nods in agreement at Xorus.

Goldstr asks, "I thought Naimorai was figured to be Raznel?"

Maags looks thoughtfully at Xorus.

Balley softly says, "The visions took over."

Speaking calmly to Goldstr, Cruxophim reminds, "Yes."

Balley blushes a nice shade of pink.

Madmountan says, "Raznel must be a lot older than we thought."

Speaking squeakily to Balley, Bushwack asks, "Ye be alright?"

Balley softly asks, "I think I will be?"

Zosopage rubs Balley tenderly.

Balley gets out a flask and pours the water from her silver scrying bowl into it and then puts the flask away.

Balley shivers.

Stormyrain grabs a cup of warm elven cinnamon brandy from a small pocket inside of her ebon lambskin jacket.

Speaking calmly to Goldstr, Cruxophim reminds, "She was thrust back in time, and eventually became Raznel. She was about to depart before her... well, abrupt departure under the alias of Rachel."

Balley offers Stormyrain a cracked silver scrying bowl.

Stormyrain accepts Balley's silver scrying bowl.

Xorus says, "This is consistent with her appearing trapped in that time period."

Stormyrain nods gratefully at Balley.

Stormyrain tucks a cracked silver scrying bowl into a small pocket inside of her ebon lambskin jacket.

Balley softly says, "Thank you."

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Stormyrain says, "Of course."

Balley softly says, "I had mine in my locker."

Stormyrain smiles.

Stormyrain nods understandingly.

Cruxophim gives Balley a strong, encouraging smile.

Balley softly says, "I was told it was becoming too connected to me."

Balley shivers.

Evia says, "Well isn't this a fine and tangled mess."

Florania looks thoughtfully at Balley.

Speaking to Balley, Ysharra says, "Thank you for sharing this with us."

Speaking to Balley, Zosopage says, "You may need to carry it with you again, unfortunately."

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Balley nods.

Speaking to Zosopage, Stormyrain says, "The visions found her without it."

Speaking bemusedly to Evia, Cruxophim remarks, "Isn't it always?"

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Balley softly says, "The visions came and took me over."

Kipara says, "Careful not to lose yourself in visions of someone else's life."

Stormyrain agrees with Kipara.

Florania concernedly repeats, "...took you over?"

Balley softly says, "I do not recall what I saw.. it is vague."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Zosopage says, "But it seems to start as a focul point then goes from there. Perhaps."

Balley softly says, "I just know I saw a lady walking and wandering round us. She was in front of me."

Cryheart asks, "So Naimorai and Raznel are the same, but in different times?"

Balley softly says, "She touched my head."

You nod at Cryheart.

Madmountan nods at Cryheart.

Balley softly says, "Took me over for a time."

Lylia whispers something to Balley.

Cryheart says, "Interesting."

Florania nods faintly at Balley.

Xorus says, "Yes. Raznel is her older."

Speaking calmly to Cryheart, Cruxophim reminds, "We knew this."

Dergoatean says, "If she's going to scry, may as well be her own bowl. The problem isn't the bowl, it's the visions."

Evia says, "How fun."

Cryheart says, "I would advise ye check yeself on a daily basis."

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Cryheart says, "For unusual growing marks or such."

Speaking calmly to Cryheart, Cruxophim reminds, "Her timeline is not linear in the same chonological fashion as ours."

Evia says, "Like an ugly onion that just keeps peeling further back."

Speaking to Cryheart, Kipara asks, "For fleas ticks and mites?"

Madmountan says, "Warts and stuff."

Cryheart says, "For magical runes or such."

Speaking amusedly to Cryheart, Cruxophim ventures, "Me or her?"

Cryheart says, "Balley."

Cruxophim glances at Balley.

Speaking to Stormyrain, Lylia asks, "Do you often wear grey robes?"

Evia asks, "She has warts?"

Cryheart says, "If she truly touched ye..then be wary."

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Speaking calmly to Balley, Cruxophim assures, "If the witch wishes witchery upon you, we'll protect you."

Goldstr says, "Mayhaps da Witch an Stone workin together here."

Speaking slowly to Lylia, Stormyrain says, "If I were to ever become more of a teacher in the Jastevian order, I would."

Lylia nods.

Lylia says, "I see."

Stormyrain takes a drink from her elven cinnamon brandy.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Dergoatean says, "Best I can tell, Raznel was still in our time and plane at the same time Naimorai was. Cause and effect are a bit of a tangle."

Stormyrain tucks a cup of warm elven cinnamon brandy into a small pocket inside of her ebon lambskin jacket.

Balley softly says, "Yes."

Zosopage says, "She will have to get through me first."

Cryheart says, "So ye keep watching for changes."

Cryheart nods at Zosopage.

Cryheart nods at Balley.

Speaking amusedly to Dergoatean, Cruxophim remarks, "I'm surprised more chronomages don't have to deal with this sort of thing."

Cryheart says, "Just to be cautious."

Speaking affably to Balley, Cruxophim jests, "Maybe you'll be thrown back in time and become evil."

Hoid says, "The chronomages work in mysterious ways."

Osloe says, "I thought Naimorai got trapped though."

Xorus says, "She was trapped in the past."

Speaking slowly to Osloe, Cruxophim reminds, "Time flies like an arrow."

Speaking to Osloe, you grouse, "It seems she survived it."

Balley gulps.

Stormyrain laughs at Lylia!

Stormyrain adopts an agreeable expression.

Osloe says, "So we only have to deal with Raznel then..."

Balley softly says, "Who was I seeing."

Lylia smiles at Stormyrain.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evia says, "Dust in the wind."

Speaking calmly to Osloe, Cruxophim reminds, "It marches ever forward, carrying us all. If she went back in time, she would eventually reach this point again."

Maags exclaims, "Onlies is not a small thing!"

Shinann says, "We do not know what sort of help she got."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Osloe says, "But not as Naimorai."

Telum says, "Nearly had him."

Dergoatean says, "When we took down Dennet, We attacked his plinite cavern in a way that destabilized time. We visited several periods in the past, and places. Naomorai hounded us in each. As we disrupted the final pylon, we returned to now; she was stuck."

Speaking to Cruxophim, you interject, "But she'd have to learn how to stop her aging--or to jump forward in time. She wouldn't live this long naturally."

Zosopage asks, "So what she say has already happened?"

Zosopage says, "Saw."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evia says, "Not if she messed up."

Speaking calmly to Osloe, Cruxophim reminds, "Time changes everyone. No one is exempt."

Madmountan points at Dergoatean.

Madmountan says, "That's a good summary."

Balley shivers.

Lylia says, "Raznel has more knowledge of Everblood than most, recall."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Evia says, "She would not make it back to the same point...if she mesed up."

Stormyrain shifts her weight.

Balley softly asks, "Should I stop warding and let the visions come?"

Lylia says, "It is not at all unreasonable that she used this knowledge to extend her own life far past its natural brief span."

Balley softly asks, "See if I can see more?"

You ponder the meaning of Balley's existence.

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Cruxophim muses, "Whatever her gift was, we know what it eventually became."

Zosopage looks at Balley with concern.

Speaking to Lylia, Raelee says, "... and we are, effectively, being asked to solve physical aging on behalf of the Caulfields."

Speaking to Balley, Ysharra says, "No."

Balley shivers.

Speaking to Balley, Dalabrac says, "Sounds risky."

Speaking amicably to Raelee, Cruxophim muses, "Absolute coincidence, I'm sure."

Speaking to Balley, Ysharra says, "If they are from Lady Death She'll find you."

Xorus says, "The two things have common origin in primal blood."

Speaking to Lylia, Raelee asks, "... would it not be fascinating if that solution were carried backwards in time?"

Lylia says, "All these elements intersect."

Speaking to Balley, Kipara says, "It may be frustrating when you have such a powerful vision, but you feel you need to know more."

Evia says, "She needs a mithril hat."
