Eorgaen 1-2, 5119

by Leafiara Autumnwind of the TownCrier


Summary

  • At the sight of purple lightning, the crowd awaits Pylasar outside Moot Hall--as his boots, neckpouch, and hat fall from the sky! Then he himself falls, desperately grabbing as his clothes to get them back on before hitting the ground.
  • Darcena makes peace with him over killing the paragon since it wasn't really Gracie, and they hug it out, while Leafiara and Avalera note that it's good for him that Falvicar isn't here to tear him apart.
  • As Cruxophim says it's over and Zosopage asks about Thadston, Pylasar gives updates. The blight remains, and Grand Magister Octaven, Magister Cordarius, and Magister Raelee will continue to work against it. No word on Thadston, but Octaven's said that if the Hall finds any sign of him they'll alert everyone.
  • Pylasar has Sir Cryheart lead on to Lake Eonak one last time, where he has the debt to pay on his deal with Chrysamber Epoch. He says she loved someone named Jashel, who was lost when Kezmon Isle vanished, so he has to go see what happened, then come back. Chrysamber interjects that he also needs to go on trial when he returns.
  • With Chrysamber's compasss set up, Pylasar heads into the water and thanks everyone for helping him remember things he never should have forgotten, for ending Raznel, and for everything. He says he'll be back in one minute, then tosses his hat to the shore and says to save it for him, as he'll be back one day. Leafi picks it up and tells him he has one minute, while Darcena and others say it's his goodbye.
  • Pylasar submerges into the water and images appear of purple lightning flashing over the sky above a stone fortress on Kezmon Isle. Storms rage from afar and boats are at the island shore, but suddenly the scene goes black and the lake returns to normal.
  • Chrysamber waits briefly, but then says his time is up and she's sure he tried; others have. Without further ado, she leaves.
  • Leafi gives Pylasar's hat to Captain Stormyrain, who at first tries to detect a loresong, but she clarifies that it's for her to get the hat back to him if he comes back, since she'll live longer than most others.
  • Shadows pass along Stormy's eyes and thin lines of blood appear along her hands, then mist seeps out and a voice says there's no time and "you must see"--as the image of the future Stormyrain appears. The sound of chains is heard and Balley appears, wearing ethereal chains and an ethereal collar and covered in wounds and dried blood, telling her master that she found her.
  • Four figures garbed in shadows accompany Grishom Stone as he approaches the futue Stormy. As the present Stormy asks if Balley will betray her, Grishom tells the future Stormy they worked well together and everyone did well because of her. He says we can't have a "world of death" if we wish to create and go beyond, then kisses her forehead and stabs her in the heart with an obsidian dagger.
  • However, she growls and repeats "no time, you must see," then sings a song that peels the air away near the shadowy figures behind Grishom--revealing Rekarth, Crux, Xorus, and Raelee. Grishom is briefly surprised, then smirks and slits her throat.
  • The crowd contemplates what it all means and if the future can be changed.


Highlights

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "She wants the statue."
Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara speculates, "I was actually thinking she might want to somehow... stop Pylasar's time traveling abilities."
Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "You know, if you are always going to use logic...I might as well call you Raelee."
Speaking to Raelee, Pukk asks, "Are all the other imps like you?"
Speaking to Pukk, Raelee says, "... no."
Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "Okay then and since Owly speaks so highly of you all the time...I will give you the benefit of the doubt."
Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "I'm also not going to call you that nickname anymore. Maags blackmailed me."
Maags glances at Pukk and slowly exhales.
Maags says, "Thought that was between the two of us."
Darcena says, "And not even a quork..."
Maags says, "A what."
Darcena repeats, "A quork."
Maags says, "That is a funny word."
Darcena surprisedly asks, "Is it a word?"
A pair of unlaced black boots fall from the sky.
A small gold-laced neckpouch falls from the sky.
A purple tri-corner hat falls from the sky.
Ysharra says, "If he's falling down in order he's missing a few vital articles of clothing."
Cryheart says, "Ladies, cover ye eyes."
Speaking softly to Cryheart, Razanetika asks, "Do we have to?"

Pylasar asks, "Who was upset?"
Speaking to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Falvicar."

Trotting up to a polished bleakstone statue, a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes sniffs and snuffles at it with apparent interest.
Speaking affably to a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes, Cruxophim suggests, "Pee on it, see what happens."
Darcena gives a sidelong glance at Cruxophim.
Cruxophim acknowledges Darcena with pernicious congeniality.
(Hoodtralfeck spits on the Bleakstone statue square in the face.)
Speaking to a white-tailed broom hare, Pukk says, "The turtle...I mean Cryheart won this race."
Chrysamber melodically says, "I see you were all successful."
Speaking to Chrysamber, Pukk says, "As Raelee would say. Successful is subjective in this case."
Pylasar says, "Won't be my first trial."
Pylasar says, "Or my last."
Avalera says, "Maybe aiming for it to be your last would be a good direction to go."
Goldstr says, "Dat be a purple minute."
Leafiara curiously says, "So, uh... who was the other person besides Crux, Raelee, and Xorus? Never seen that one."
Speaking to Leafiara, Stormyrain says, "Rekarth."
Speaking amusedly to Leafiara, Cruxophim explains, "Rekarth?  Oh, he's.... not visible much."
Leafiara admits, "Huh, never heard of him either, apparently..."
Xorus says, "The Black Diabolist."
Leafiara suddenly says, "Oh, the Black Diabolist. Now *him* I've heard of."
Leafiara recalls, "He was mentioned in some context about a mask..."
Leafiara dryly says, "Because we always, always discuss masks around here."
Lazaryth dully says, "I'm sure I'll get used to sleeping with a scarab burrowing around under my skin."


Log

Pylasar En Route

[Town Square Central]

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

Also here: Littlefuut, Leifa, Lord Farhammer who is sitting, Lord Thrassus, Rasson, Zosopage, Gypsy Scribe Balley, Lord Shyloche who is sitting, Zaxabar, Guarrin, Illness, Lady Alisette, Lord Chamorr, Spoetzel, Ensayn who is sitting, Darcena, Event Planner Leafiara, Avalera, Pukk, Felita, Bernadette, Stilehe, Great Lord Krilzin, Sanguino, Great Lord Gutstorm, Razanetika, Master Eledryn, Otsakleia Obvious paths: northeast, east, southeast, southwest, west, northwest

The sky is filled with a blanket of low clouds, pale and unmoving. Sounds seem muffled and the air feels thick and takes on a quiet stillness.

Speaking to Guarrin, Darcena says, "The violet one is for Neq. The crystal blue for Spenster. The bone white one is for my fifth husband. The other two are for Erlang and Ashemu."

Speaking surreptitiously to Pukk, Leafiara says, "We need to track down Cryheart."

Pukk says, "I was thinking the same thing."

Pukk says, "I was actually hoping for Geijon."

Speaking to Guarrin, Darcena says, "That is actually quite interesting."

Sir Cryheart's group just arrived.

Speaking deeply to Darcena, Guarrin says, "I think I went hunting with Neq few times."

Pukk says, "He is the faster Cryheart."

Maags says, "Thinks is time for them to go to sleep."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk exclaims, "Aha!"

Speaking to Guarrin, Darcena says, "Probably did."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk asks, "Don't suppose Geijon will be here tonight?"

Darcena says, "He was part of Helden Hall, too."

Darcena says, "Hearthstone Porch sitter."

Cryheart says, "Hae nae heard."

Pukk recites:

"Everybody Join Cryheart

since Geijon isn't here"

Leafiara happily exclaims, "That's our Pukk! Light of the Landing!"

Mollan asks, "Ohh man another war party?"

Cryheart says, "That dinnae faze me."

Pukk says, "Woohoo, a lot of people followed my advice this time."

Maylan: "YARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR."

Speaking earnestly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "There's no one quite like you."

Ensayn thoughtfully says, "I killed so many of you last night. I'm sorry." [doppelgangers]

A bolt of purple lightning streaks across the night, casting some of the falling snowflakes into a violet sheen.

Balley softly says, "It is ok."

Leafiara says, "Ah, Pylasar..."

Balley softly says, "Oh look we have purple."

Cryheart says, "Moving."

Mollan says, "Purple lightning."

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 the pallid grey Melikor disk emblazoned with a vibrant scarlet pentacle, the Ysharra disk, a snow white raven that is flying around, a thin elderly gnoll, a polished bleakstone statue and a large purple wooden barrel.

Also here: Kembal, Xorus, Razanetika, Great Lord Gutstorm, Sofal, Lord Zolis, Goldstr, Wolfloner who is sitting, Kobant, Peachykin, Cruxophim who is sitting, Land Pirate Maylan who is sitting, Shinann, Chaoswynd, Avalera, Nostre, Great Lady Wyrden, Lazaryth, Maags, Tolida, Zosopage, Gypsy Scribe Balley, Littlefuut, Leifa, Rasson, Zaxabar, Guarrin, Lady Alisette, Lord Chamorr, Darcena, Pukk, Felita, Bernadette, Stilehe, Great Lord Krilzin, Event Planner Leafiara, Master Eledryn, Sir Cryheart, Mayor Lylia, Magister Raelee, Lord Thrassus, Mistress Berkana, Ysharra, Melikor

Pukk says, "There we go, that's our Peter."

Leafiara muses, "Time to find out what his deal with Chrysamber was."

Krilzin melodically asks, "Where's the purple rain?"

Speaking exasperatedly to Chaoswynd, Darcena asks, "Who is always on my mind?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "She wants the statue."

Chaoswynd blinks at Darcena.

Speaking in Faendryl, Lylia says something you don't understand.

Darcena mutters, "Never mind."

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara speculates, "I was actually thinking she might want to somehow... stop Pylasar's time traveling abilities."

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara adds, "But we'll see."

Speaking in Faendryl, Leifa says something you don't understand.

Lazaryth says, "I'm looking forward to the day when I don't need to stand out in the snow or the rain."

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "You know, if you are always going to use logic...I might as well call you Raelee."

Speaking lightly to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "I was just talking about you."

Speaking amusedly to Lazaryth, Leafiara says, "You'll be waiting a long time, I think."

Raelee gives a sidelong glance at Pukk.

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "You're in the wrong part of the world."

Speaking lightly to Darcena, Cruxophim remarks, "Shocking."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "Well, it's true...you always cheat and use logic."

Leifa offhandedly says, "There's always islands."

Speaking to Ysharra, Lazaryth says, "I like to think that Raznel was in the wrong part of the world."

Lazaryth says, "And she's the only reason I'm standing out here."

Speaking confidently to Lazaryth, Leafiara says, "Oh, she was in the wrong part of the world alright."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk asks, "Are all the other imps like you?"

Speaking wryly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Let's hope not."

Lylia muses, "Yes, the wrong part of the world, and how surprising that she was. I thought she would be...sharper."

Speaking to Pukk, Raelee says, "... no."

Leifa says, "It's not always terri...wait, yes it is."

Maags mutters, "Glad I has boots on for once."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "Okay then and since Owly speaks so highly of you all the time...I will give you the benefit of the doubt."

Speaking cautiously to Pukk, Raelee says, "... all right, then."

Speaking interestedly to Maags, Leafiara says, "Very nice ones too..."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "I'm also not going to call you that nickname anymore. Maags blackmailed me."

Maags glances at Pukk and slowly exhales.

Pukk says, "And I promised her."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "I am still trying to decipher the pattern of whom you poke the apple before you gift it and whom you do not."

Speaking warmly to Ysharra, Lylia says, "She looks well. I am so happy to see her back." [Munin, Ysharra's raven, who she had sent away while Raznel lived]

Maags says, "Thought that was between the two of us."

Speaking nonchalantly to Darcena, Cruxophim insists, "There's no pattern."

Speaking drunkenly to a spotted great horned owl, Gutstorm says, "I decided not to eat you today."

Speaking neutrally to Maags, Raelee asks, "Whatever it takes, no?"

Cryheart says, "Hello Owliver."

Speaking to Maags, Pukk says, "No, you never said that."

Maags says, "But did not ask for a promise of that part."

Speaking suspiciously to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "We'll see."

Speaking in Faendryl, Ysharra says something you don't understand.

Speaking to Maags, Pukk says, "I just promised I would never call her that name anymore."

Speaking to Maags, Pukk says, "I also decided to live up to the spirit of the agreement and not give her other nicknames."

Speaking to Pukk, Maags says, "Spose next time yous need me I shall has to make the agreement wider."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Thank you. I am so happy to have her home."

Balley softly asks, "So what do you think Peter is going to have to say?"

Darcena exclaims, "Munin!"

Speaking to Darcena, Ysharra says, "That's me."

A bolt of purple lightning zigs through the sky, then zags, then zigs again, heading towards Moot Hall.

Pukk says, "Can't get wider than that. Besides Owly has been hooting non-stop about it too."

Speaking to Balley, Leafiara admits, "He's always unpredictable, that one."

Darcena says, "And not even a quork..."

Speaking to Pukk, Zosopage says, "So in other words you like to live."

Speaking to Darcena, Ysharra says, "She answered the call last evening. After we were done."

Maags says, "A what."

Balley softly says, "That is true."

Balley softly says, "Soo many questions."

Darcena repeats, "A quork."

Speaking to Zosopage, Pukk says, "That doesn't bother me. Dying is always fun."

Maags says, "That is a funny word."

Stormyrain just arrived.

Darcena surprisedly asks, "Is it a word?"

Pukk exclaims, "Aha, Stormy of the rain!"

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "You delivered, Madame Mayor."

Maylan says, "Anyone else still have those scarab critters inside of them? Mine is still digging around."

Speaking to Pukk, Zosopage says, "There's dying and then there is dying."

Speaking to Darcena, Maags asks, "Sound?"

Speaking to Shinann, Stormyrain asks, "I haven't heard anything about Thadston, have you?"

Speaking to Maylan, Kembal says, "I haven't checked tonight, but probably likely for me."

A pair of unlaced black boots fall from the sky.

Alisette asks, "Boots?"

Rasson says, "Long walk back if he closed the portal from the Bleakland side."

A small gold-laced neckpouch falls from the sky.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "Guess Munin is hungry for something else."

Bernadette softly says, "Lookie some boots."

Pukk exclaims, "I'm hoping they will find his gloves....because if so, I call dibs!"

Cryheart says, "Hmmmm."

Tolida asks, "Uh?"

Leafiara slowly says, "Well, okay then."

Maags sashays along, displaying a pair of tall vanilla-hued suede boots chained across the ankles!

Chamorr heartily says, "Maags is they yers."

A purple tri-corner hat falls from the sky.

Goldstr asks, "Peter stripping?"

Darcena yells, "Reassemble quickly!"

Razanetika softly exclaims, "The sky is falling!"

Cryheart says, "It seems so."

Ysharra says, "If he's falling down in order he's missing a few vital articles of clothing."

Speaking to Chamorr, Maags says, "The boots? yes."

Lylia wearily says, "If he appears naked..."

Zosopage says, "He's falling piece by piece."

Kembal says, "Well, the hat is clearly identifiable."

Leifa confusedly asks, "Is a very tall giantman undressing?"

Leafiara yells, "Don't unravel on us now that it's over!"

Cryheart says, "Ladies, cover ye eyes."

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena says, "Now you've done it. He'll have to."

Alisette exclaims, "Is too cold to be nekkid!"

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra asks, "Would it really surprise anyone in this town, by now?"

Speaking to Lylia, Kembal says, "Look, I'd accept anything as long as he doesn't turn Moot Hall purple."

Zolis whispers something to Lylia.

Speaking softly to Cryheart, Razanetika asks, "Do we have to?"


Chatting with Pylasar

Pylasar falls from the sky, grabbing at his clothing items as he scrambles to get them back on before he hits the ground. He keeps most of his items on, thank goodness, and lands with the grace of a cat!

Darcena plaintively whines, "What if I don't want to close my eyes?"

Pukk yells, "Really...tri corner? Cavalier would be so much better!"

Pylasar exclaims, "Tada!"

(OOC) Zosopage's player whispers to the group, "Got me singing a good song I know called Falling to Pieces."

Pylasar picks up his hat, neckpouch and boots and puts them on quickly.

Speaking amiably to Pylasar, Leafiara greets, "Evenin' there!"

Pylasar dusts himself off.

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra asks, "Hello, Peter. How are you?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Pukk says, "Get a cavalier hat and look mysterious."

Speaking calmly to Pylasar, Cruxophim greets, "Evenin'."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena offers, "No hard feelings?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "It wasn't really Gracie."

Speaking heartily to Pylasar, Chamorr says, "Evenin."

Pylasar grins at Darcena.

Pylasar gives Darcena a friendly hug.

Morofinwe quietly says, "Neat trick, that."

Darcena hugs Pylasar.

Balley softly says, "Hello Peter."

Cryheart says, "We feel for ye loss."

Speaking helpfully to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Luckily for you, no Falvicar here tonight." [this didn't make it into the log because it's already enormous, but after Pylasar left Falvicar wanted to chase him down and avenge his parents]

Pylasar slowly empties his lungs.

Speaking to Pylasar, Leafiara whispers aloud, "He was really upset last night."

Speaking to Pylasar, Alisette says, "You threw boots at us."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Morofinwe says, "Yet."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Krilzin asks, "What news do you bring?"

Pylasar asks, "Who was upset?"

Zosopage says, "Was still cruel to use her visage."

Guarrin whispers something to Cryheart.

Speaking to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Falvicar."

Leafiara nods at Pylasar.

Pylasar nods.

Avalera says, "Falvicar is ready to split you a..."

Speaking to Pylasar, Pukk whispers aloud, "If your aim was better you could have hit the mayor."

Avalera carefully says, "...apart..."

Speaking wryly to Leafiara, Cruxophim complains, "He's always upset about something..."

Pylasar says, "Geijon too, I'd imagine. If he can find his way here."

Ysharra says, "Or worse..."

Pylasar snickers to himself.

Speaking affably to Pylasar, Cruxophim remarks, "Who cares? It's done."

Speaking suspiciously to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "Perhaps."

Pylasar says, "It is, in some ways."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maylan says, "Mostly."

Cryheart says, "Ahhh."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Leafiara agrees, "Onward to the future."

Lazaryth mumbles, "I certainly don't."

Krilzin melodically says, "I heard there was news to be had."

Leafiara hurriedly says, "Maybe not in the time traveling sense, though."

Raelee quietly says, "... and there is so much work yet to be done, in others."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maylan says, "I'm still rather itchy."

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra says, "I would like to hear your thoughts."

Speaking to Pylasar, Zosopage asks, "Any word from Thadston at all?"

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan asks, "You too?"

Pylasar says, "The blight remains. The witch's death did not stop it."

Speaking briefly to Maylan, Lazaryth says, "Yes."

Speaking amusedly to Zosopage, Cruxophim speculates, "Long walk."

Pukk exclaims, "It's the statue!"

Zosopage says, "Ohh that long eh."

Pylasar says, "I am told Octaven and Cordarius will continue to work against that."

Hoodtralfeck says, "Guess she isn't really dead."

Pylasar says, "I assume with you as well."

Speaking accusingly to a polished bleakstone statue, Pukk exclaims, "It's all your fault!"

Pylasar nods at Raelee.

Cryheart whispers something to Guarrin.

Speaking to Pylasar, Raelee says, "Correct."

Speaking thoughtfully to Pylasar, Cruxophim offers, "So have I. Been working on decoupling it, I mean."

Speaking to Pylasar, Raelee says, "And now, we can truly focus."

Speaking drunkenly to Pylasar, Gutstorm asks, "Can we replace that statue with a bulletin board?"

Maags says, "Did not expect it would suddenly unblight but prayed it would begin to go away."

Lylia says, "Removing the statue would no more cure the blight than extinguishing a match would put out a house fire that was set with it."

Speaking dryly to Gutstorm, Cruxophim muses, "Apparently not."

Pylasar says, "There has been no word on Thadston. Octaven's golems helped keep the spores in the Bleaklands contained, as you all destroyed them here. Thank Kai for that."

Gutstorm glances at Cruxophim and begins to wail!

You see a lump moving about just under Kembal's skin!

Speaking to Gutstorm, Pukk exclaims, "Or better yet. A statue of a bulletin board!"

Pylasar says, "Octaven assured me if they find any sign of Thadston in the Bleaklands they'll alert you all at once."

Guarrin whispers something to Cryheart.

Pylasar says, "He's a fighter, that one."

Leafiara adamantly says, "Unless I see a corpse or at very least some abandoned gauntlets, I'll keep believing he was too stubborn to die."

Maylan asks, "Should we not go find him?"

Cryheart whispers something to Guarrin.

Trotting up to a polished bleakstone statue, a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes sniffs and snuffles at it with apparent interest.

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "Maylan has a device that may help. I am ready to return by any means necessary. The man is valuable."

Pukk says, "Thadston is probably still running around in the Bleaklands killing everything in sight."

Speaking affably to a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes, Cruxophim suggests, "Pee on it, see what happens."

Pylasar says, "It is something to discuss with her, yes." [unclear who or what this is a response to; my best guess is a whisper from Raelee, given his lines shortly afterward]

Darcena gives a sidelong glance at Cruxophim.

Speaking drunkenly to a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes, Gutstorm says, "Hose down the statue."

Cruxophim acknowledges Darcena with pernicious congeniality.

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan says, "Aye, the navigator can surely find him if he's still alive."

Pylasar slowly empties his lungs.

Pukk says, "Like a warrior's berserk that won't shut off."

Pylasar softly runs a finger over his purple hibiscus, as if assuring himself that it has not come loose.

Rasson says, "After the Bleaklands I feel he would go to the secret hiding place of his son, not come here."

Lazaryth says, "I agree. If we can't expend a little efford to preserve a man like Thadston, I think something is wrong."

Rasson says, "Just my 2 silvers."

Pylasar asks, "I am sure Octaven will reach out, or word can be sent to her, no?"

Pylasar peers quizzically at Raelee.

Speaking to herself, Darcena murmurs, "Let him rot."

Speaking calmly to Pylasar, Cruxophim ventures, "What else? Besides curing the blight?"

Raelee nods slightly at Pylasar.

Speaking darkly to Lylia, Wolfloner asks, "That the same one that managed to have the Outpost transported to the land of the Ithzir and have over half his command perish there?"

Ysharra says, "Could Malvernus be contacted? He has traveled there, as well."

Speaking to a dark-masked black and white puppy with sparkling glacial blue eyes, Hoodtralfeck says, "Go for it, mark it as yours."

Pylasar says, "No Thaddy daddy left behind."

Speaking to Rasson, Lylia says, "Quite likely."

Speaking quietly to Pylasar, Raelee says, "Yes."

Speaking musingly to Cruxophim, Leafiara says, "Figuring out the new scarabs."

Kembal says, "A cure for these scarabs would be nice."


Pylasar's Debt

Pylasar asks, "Shall we go to the lake again?"

(Lazaryth glances at his arm.) [got a scarab]

Pylasar peers quizzically at Cryheart.

Speaking to Wolfloner, Lylia says, "You do not know why he is valuable, but I assure you, he is."

Balley softly asks, "What do they look like?"

Pylasar says, "One last time."

Speaking to Pylasar, Rasson says, "He was not left behind,made a choice."

Speaking to Leafiara, Maylan says, "I sorta like mine. It's like a little itchy pet."

Cryheart asks, "Aye?"

Pylasar says, "I've a debt to pay."

Pylasar joins Cryheart's group.

Cryheart says, "If that is your wish."

Speaking to Pylasar, Pukk exclaims, "Join Cryheart!"

Speaking pointedly to Pylasar, Lylia says, "Yes. You do."

Cryheart says, "Join as we are moving out."

Leafiara earnestly says, "I really will miss these constant trips to the lake."

Cryheart says, "He did."

Pukk says, "Oh you did."

Speaking suspiciously to Pylasar, Cruxophim prompts, "Debt?"

Maags quickly prompts, "Threetwoone!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "You can always still go."

Cryheart says, "Three....."

Cryheart says, "Twoo......."

Speaking wistfully to Darcena, Leafiara says, "Yeah, but it wouldn't be the same without dozens of us."

Cryheart says, "One......."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "He mentioned it yesterday, but no specifics."

(Hoodtralfeck spits on the Bleakstone statue square in the face.)

Cryheart says, "We go."

[travel begins]

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "I suppose we'll find out directly."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk asks, "Ah, you have a little boost in your step tonight...did you have some coffee already?"

Speaking placidly to Ysharra, Cruxophim states, "Suppose we will."

[Melgorehn's Reach, Lake Eonak]

You are on the bank of a beautiful mountain lake that is fed by a waterfall gushing from the mountain side. There is a path which seems to actually lead up the side of the mountain. You also see a barely visible trail leading into a grove of ancient trees and a cedar chip path.

Something crawls around under Raelee's skin. [scarab]

Speaking to a white-tailed broom hare, Pukk says, "The turtle...I mean Cryheart won this race."

Speaking to Pukk, Zosopage says, "Morelike whiskey. A warrior's coffee."

Cryheart says, "Just rest."

Speaking heartily to Chrysamber, Chamorr says, "Evenin."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Maylan asks, "Why are you still here?"

Speaking to Cryheart, Ysharra says, "Thank you again, Shiny. For leading this rag-tag group."

Speaking sincerely to Cryheart, Leafiara says, "Sometimes we don't know how good we have it."

Speaking to Cryheart, Darcena says, "I appreciate all the extra exercise yesterday."

Speaking to Ysharra, Pukk exclaims, "You used my nickname for him!"

Ysharra says, "Oh, I wouldn't say that."

Ysharra winks at Leafiara.

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "You minx."

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.

The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

Speaking to Chrysamber, Maylan asks, "Isn't it about time you left town?"

Pukk says, "Somebody is watching us."

Ephemeral twists of silver-hazed mist wreathe Darcena's forearms as she murmurs a serene phrase...

Darcena gestures.

Darcena momentarily gets a faroff look in her eyes, and then returns to normal.

Blades just arrived.

Darcena says, "It's just Blades."

Blades asks, "Problems giant?"

Speaking to Blades, Eledryn reminds, "I am not an elemental."

Blades says, "I can resolve them."

Speaking to Maylan, Ysharra says, "You seem a little anxious about it."

Speaking to Blades, Darcena says, "Don't get sassy at me."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Goldstr asks, "Da witch put a bug in some of us. Ye knows how we kin get em out?"

Speaking to Blades, Stormyrain says, "You really shouldn't blame her that your presence ties her tongue."

Speaking to Darcena, Berkana asks, "Why should you be an exception?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "Chrysamber is going to tell use a time travel joke but we didn't like it."

Chrysamber glances at Pylasar.

Pylasar slowly empties his lungs.

Blades says, "Uppity giants."

Chrysamber melodically says, "I see you were all successful."

Lylia says, "Yes."

Speaking confidently to Chrysamber, Leafiara says, "Naturally."

Balley softly asks, "If she is gone why do her scarabs remain?"

Chamorr heartily says, "Ding dong."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Maylan says, "Small thanks to you."

Blades asks, "Oh the meatshield goin to walk us in a circle again?"

Speaking to Chrysamber, Pukk says, "As Raelee would say. Successful is subjective in this case."

Speaking wryly to Blades, Darcena says, "Or two."

Cryheart asks, "Ye think the scarabs she planted in a few folks died with her?"

Blades says, "Maybe backwards this time."

Chrysamber melodically asks, "Your agreement then, Peter?"

Pylasar nods.

Speaking to Blades, Darcena offers, "Sideways?"

Speaking to Cryheart, Maylan says, "Mine is very much alive and well."

Speaking to Pukk, Raelee says, "... agreed."

Pylasar says, "Here to make good, or something."

Leifa tentatively says, "Depends on the definition."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "It's all Owly's fault."

Krilzin melodically says, "Or something."

Speaking to Cryheart, Goldstr says, "I still feels it in me."

Lazaryth says, "Yes, unfortunately my scarab is still alive."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maylan says, "Careful, don't smush it. I kinda like the little bug."

Lazaryth mumbles, "'My' scarab. Apparently it's mine now."

Speaking to Maylan, Kembal says, "Think it showed it likes you too."

Pylasar asks, "Can...can I tell them at least?"

Speaking helpfully to Lazaryth, Darcena says, "Mine lived for about three months then died."

Pylasar peers quizzically at Chrysamber.

Balley softly says, "When I had mine I named mine Fred."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "Well, at least it's singular, in your case. Thus far."

Chrysamber nods.

Avalera offhandedly says, "I'm sure they're harmless little remnants."

Speaking to Darcena, Lazaryth says, "That's lovely."

Speaking to Kembal, Pukk says, "Maylan's scarab will die soon. Alcohol poisoning for sure."

Blades asks, "Guess where it wasn't snowing again?"

Blades peers quizzically at Berkana.

Speaking to Pylasar, Maylan says, "You hardly need her permission."

Pylasar says, "I respect people's personal things."

Pylasar says, "She loved someone once."

Speaking calmly to Pylasar, Cruxophim urges, "Spill the goss."

Pylasar gasps.

Pylasar gasps.

Chamorr heartily says, "Really."

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Krilzin says, "You have her permission. speak your mind."

Leafiara wryly says, "...right."

Blades says, "Illistim."

Blades nods at Berkana.

Speaking skeptically to Pylasar, Maylan asks, "That one?"

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra says, "Most of us have."

Speaking nonchalantly to Chrysamber, Cruxophim warns, "Don't let it happen again."

Pylasar says, "Jashel was his name. Lost when Kezmon vanished."

Pylasar asks, "Do I have the right of it?"

Pylasar peers quizzically at Chrysamber.

Chrysamber nods.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Darcena mutters, "Seriously."

Speaking to Pukk, Kembal says, "May need to try that if that works."

Roelaren says, "Thank ye."

Leafiara interestedly asks, "Are we rescuing someone from the past now?"

Pylasar says, "I'm going to go see what happened, then come right back."

Pylasar asks, "Easy peasy right?"

Darcena abruptly says, "Wait."

Speaking to Melikor, Ysharra says, "Neville's being neurotic again."

Chrysamber melodically says, "...there is more, Peter."

Darcena asks, "The cost wasn't you going to prison for your crimes?"

Darcena asks, "It's to run an errand for her?"

Pylasar asks, "Oh, trial. Yeah, debatable, right?"

Speaking sarcastically to Pylasar, Pukk says, "Sure, always easy peasy."

Chrysamber melodically says, "No."

Pylasar nods.

Speaking to Ysharra, Melikor says, "Eh, it's just their way."

Pylasar says, "Won't be my first trial."

Pylasar says, "Or my last."

Darcena says, "Oh, okay."

Chrysamber melodically says, "Do not be so certain."

Pylasar nods.

Pylasar says, "Let's do this then."

Leafiara wonders, "Would any court other than the one in the Landing even believe any details given in a trial?"

Avalera says, "Maybe aiming for it to be your last would be a good direction to go."

Chrysamber offers Pylasar a smooth ivory compass.

Xorus whispers something to Lylia.

Pylasar accepts Chrysamber's ivory compass.

Ysharra says, "Ta'Faendryl probably has similar statutes drawn up every other week based on cases like this."

Speaking to Leafiara, Kembal says, "I think it'd be difficult for the Landing's court to even believe the details."

Lylia whispers something to Xorus.

Lylia says, "I leave those matters to the Rachis."

Krilzin melodically says, "I had a compass once. Then I lost it in the woods. Now I live in the woods. I have made what I feared my home."

Maylan confusedly asks, "What is about to happen?"

Ysharra whispers something to Lylia.

Blades asks, "Death?"

Speaking to Blades, Maylan asks, "Is that all?"

Speaking to Krilzin, Lazaryth says, "That's wise."

Blades says, "It'll only sting for a moment."

Darcena quietly chants, "More blood less death."

Chrysamber melodically says, "Learn what you can of his fate and where he went. I will handle the rest from that point. Then return and we shall arrange your trial. It will be fair."

Chrysamber nods at Pylasar.

Pylasar says, "Of course."

Speaking affably to Darcena, Cruxophim murmurs, "Druther have both."

Pylasar indicates a smooth ivory compass as a possible option.

Pylasar asks, "This is all...all set up?"

Chrysamber nods.

Speaking melodically to Lazaryth, Krilzin asks, "The forest provided for me. Gave me sustenance. Why would I not protect it in return?"

Pylasar says, "Great..."

Pylasar softly runs a finger over his purple hibiscus, as if assuring himself that it has not come loose.

Alisette hesitantly asks, "Is this a good idea?"

Stormyrain whispers something to Shinann.

Speaking to Pylasar, Thrassus says, "Farewell, then."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Maylan says, "You have no jurisdiction here, wench."

Speaking to Pylasar, Darcena says, "Good luck! Don't be afraid to die."


Investigating Kezmon Isle

Pylasar wades out into the cold waters of the lake.

Darcena murmurs, "Make my miniature more valuable."

Maags says, "Problies not a good idea but problies also there is no arguement."

Krilzin melodically says, "Looks refreshing."

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra asks, "This is what you want?"

Speaking quietly to Maylan, Lylia reminds, "Their jurisdiction is not merely geographical."

Krilzin melodically says, "Wish I could go swimming."

Pylasar says, "This is what I agreed to."

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra says, "Maybe. Not what I asked."

Speaking to Pylasar, Maylan says, "There is time to un-agree."

Pylasar turns in the waters, looking back at the crowd gathered at the shore.

Cryheart says, "An agreement is an agreement."

Pylasar says, "Time is a funny thing."

Pylasar nods at Maylan.

Blades asks, "Where's the ice princess?"

Blades peers quizzically at Leifa.

Speaking heartily to Pylasar, Chamorr says, "Better than you deserve."

Ysharra says, "Hilarious."

Zosopage says, "The jury selection is going to be a pain."

Lylia says, "You also agreed to do a great many things for Raznel. Not all agreements are equally binding. We do have choices."

Speaking to Blades, Leifa asks, "Whom?"

Blades says, "Dhairn."

Leifa turns away from Blades, ignoring him.

Leifa whispers something to Blades.

Pylasar says, "Thank you everyone. For, everything. For eventually helping me remember certain things that I never should have forgotten in the first place. Thank you for helping to end Raznel, and just...thank you."

Speaking sincerely to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "A pleasure."

Speaking nonchalantly to Pylasar, Cruxophim offers, "Welcome. All in a year's work."

Krilzin melodically says, "I did nothing. I was forced to stay inside the walls."

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra says, "Good night, Peter."

Pylasar wades deeper into the waters and traces a rune along the smooth ivory compass in his hands that Chrysamber gave him.

Speaking to Pylasar, Stormyrain murmurs, "Farewell my friend. May our paths cross again soon."

Krilzin melodically says, "Too young to fight."

Maylan exclaims, "This is not a goodbye!"

Speaking to Pylasar, Ysharra says, "And good-bye."

Speaking to Pylasar, Goldstr exclaims, "An I fer one tanks ye!"

Berkana says, "Again with the water."

Speaking to Pylasar, Maags exclaims, "Yous can tell us that later, hurries up!"

Pylasar exclaims, "I'll be back in one minute!"

Pylasar nods at Chrysamber.

Speaking melodically to Pylasar, Krilzin says, "Glad you got your memories back."

Pylasar says, "Time me! Hah. Pun intended."

Pylasar smirks.

Speaking to Pylasar, Lylia says, "Thank you for your help in so many matters. We shall await your return."

Speaking darkly to Pylasar, Wolfloner says, "Fair travels."

Cruxophim dubiously grunts, "Mm-hmmm."

Cryheart says, "One second."

Speaking to Pylasar, Leifa says, "Time waits for no man."

Pylasar exclaims, "Oh!"

Pylasar takes a purple tri-cornered hat off his head.

Speaking to Chrysamber, Leafiara whispers aloud, "Knowing him, you better check one minute *before* when he leaves too."

Pylasar says, "Save this for me! I'll be back for it one day."

Pylasar tosses his hat to the shoreline.

Goldstr says, "One minute to dat mage coulds be years."

Leafiara picks up a purple tri-cornered hat.

Leafiara gazes thoughtfully at her tri-cornered hat.

Pylasar softly runs a finger over his purple hibiscus, as if assuring himself that it has not come loose.

Blades asks, "You a pirate now?"

Blades peers quizzically at Leafiara.

Speaking slowly to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "Hold on, you're not--"

Speaking uncertainly to Blades, Leafiara asks, "Maybe?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "Yes, he's saying his good byes."

Blades says, "Here's my booty."

Blades drops some coins.

Darcena says, "It's taking a darn long time, too."

Speaking to Pylasar, Leafiara says, "...one minute. You have one minute."

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "You killed Rysus faster than this."

Speaking to Leafiara, Kembal says, "Ok, your job til the end of time is to keep that hat."

Speaking to Leafiara, Leifa says, "Your new style."

Pylasar wades into the waters of the lake and the ivory compass begins to glow. Pylasar fully submerges into the waters as they begin to shimmer and images appear within.

Lazaryth noncommittally says, "Mm."

Speaking to Leafiara, Zosopage says, "My timer is set for 5 minutes."

Krilzin melodically says, "Looks like fun."

Ysharra says, "Hibiscus. Delicate beauty."

Speaking to Roelaren, Kembal says, "Smart."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Ysharra says, "Shush. It's poetic."

The waters of the lake shift and shimmer more, thousands of stars flashing rapidly, moving at incredible speeds. Whorls of light twist and turn within like coils of brilliant energy.

(OOC) Eledryn's player whispers to the group, "You estimate that a beautiful mountain lake can store a very small amount with enough space for one item. That's not a lake, that's a puddle."

Leafiara determinedly says, "Come on..."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "In the lore I was speaking of, it meant the giver was acknowledging and praising the receiver's beauty."

Speaking impatiently to Cruxophim, Darcena asks, "Can we go cause chaos now?"

Speaking to Chrysamber, Leifa asks, "And now...?"

Darcena says, "It's time for a ruckus."

Within the waters, an island appears in the distance. A stone fortress stands on the horizon, banners flapping in the wind as storm clouds churn in the backdrop. Darkness creeps beneath the waters surrounding the island. In the sky above Kezmon Isle, you see a streak of purple lightning appear.

Chrysamber melodically says, "Now we wait."

Speaking casually to Darcena, Cruxophim concedes, "Sure, why not?"

Berkana says, "Hmm."

Maylan whines, "For how long?"

Leifa impatiently says, "Not my strong suit."

Chrysamber melodically says, "He is to return within one minute."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Darcena mutters, "Longest minute ever."

Goldstr says, "Dat be a purple minute."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags asks, "Are yous keeping time?"

Gutstorm drunkenly asks, "I can barely hold me breaf for 5 shecondsh, how he gonna hold hish for a minoot?"

Darcena plaintively complains, "Are we sure they even know how to tell time correctly?"

Blades asks, "Got any booze on ya?"

Leafiara nervously says, "He survived the Bleaklands. He can handle this."

Lylia observes, "You have a great deal of control over time, but not always over people. He may have other plans."

Speaking to Maags, Zosopage says, "I am."

Kembal asks, "We've come up with an agreed upon definition of minute, correct?"

Speaking to Kembal, Darcena says, "I sure haven't."

Zosopage says, "Ok that's one minute."

Darcena says, "Some people say I was only married to my fifth husband for a hot minute."

Blades says, "That's for the pirate." [Crux had picked up the coins he dropped; I didn't even see the coins in the heat of it]

Darcena slowly drawls, "It felt like an eternity."

Speaking to Kembal, Eledryn asks, "Are we talking an actual minute, or a 'The lady will be dressed and ready for the ball in a minute' minute?"

Speaking adamantly to Blades, Leafiara says, "He's getting the hat back very soon."

Speaking to her tri-cornered hat, Leafiara mutters, "At least he better be."

Blades says, "I don't want your bloody fruitcake."

Speaking to Eledryn, Kembal says, "Starting to think it may be the latter."

Blades stares unwaveringly at Berkana.

Maags says, "His minute in there and our minute out here could be different."

Berkana says, "Suck the brandy out."

Krilzin melodically says, "I'll have some blood cake."

The lakes waters shimmer and ripple and a streak of purple lightning still soars over the island within.

Cruxophim wryly reminds, "His aim is not always so great."

Maags says, "Truth."

Ysharra says, "He does frequently forget which part of time he's inhabiting."

Ysharra says, "Relatively speaking."

Krilzin melodically says, "Reminds me of the forest."

Zosopage says, "Ok it's set for 5 minutes again."

Leafiara glances nervously at the tri-cornered hat in her hand.

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "I told you it felt like a goodbye."

Speaking quietly to Chrysamber, Raelee asks, "... you will be departing following this?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "You should have expressed yourself more."

Blades says, "Still looks like fruitcake."

Berkana says, "One bite."

Berkana offers Blades a slice of brandy-soaked fruitcake.

Darcena says, "Now you're going to have to wall up all this terrible feelings you never got to say to him."

Speaking uneasily to Darcena, Leafiara says, "He was doing it just in case."

The streak of purple lightning zigs, zags, zigs above Kezmon Isle as some boats can be seen at the shore of the island. Storms rage in the distance. Suddenly the entire scene within the lake goes black. A moment later the lake's waters return to normal.

Darcena pointedly says, "Again."

Speaking to Raelee, Maylan says, "Of course she will. She's not welcome here."

Blades says, "Give it to that fruitcake."

Blades points at Darcena.

Cryheart says, "Hmmm."

Speaking suddenly to Darcena, Leafiara says, "Wait, what? I like Pylasar."


Time's Up

Chrysamber squints.

Speaking to Blades, Darcena says, "I don't eat fruit."

Blades asks, "Did I stutter?"

Zosopage says, "Hrmm that didn't look too promising."

Speaking honestly to Blades, Darcena says, "A little."

Darcena says, "All that rage coming out, I think."

Speaking to Maylan, Raelee asks, "Is that entirely up to you?"

Speaking drunkenly to Darcena, Gutstorm says, "Fruit is for rabbits."

Chrysamber seems to be waiting for something.

Speaking to Raelee, Maylan says, "She knows."

Thrassus says, "He got caught in it, looks like."

Speaking drunkenly to Razanetika, Gutstorm exclaims, "Fruit is what food eats!"

Chrysamber squints.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maylan says, "I think he's escaping."

Chrysamber melodically says, "I see. Interesting."

Leafiara determinedly says, "Come on..."

Speaking to Chrysamber, Ysharra asks, "Can you tell us?"

Speaking to her copper chalice, Darcena says, "You're empty."

Chrysamber melodically says, "His time is up."

Leafiara worriedly asks, "Meaning what?"

Speaking melodically to Chrysamber, Krilzin asks, "Is that bad?"

Speaking to Chrysamber, Leifa says, "And yet still we wait."

Chrysamber melodically says, "I am sure he tried. Others have. It was worth an effort."

Zolis deeply says, "He drowned."

Cryheart says, "Well...he did get time confused."

Blades says, "You get a new hat."

Blades nods at Leafiara.

Chrysamber melodically says, "Goodbye."

Lady Chrysamber just went southwest.


Disappearance

Krilzin melodically says, "The waters look calm. He looked like he could swim."

Leafiara glances at the tri-cornered hat in her hand.

Darcena asks, "I waited all this time for THAT?"

Krilzin melodically says, "Doubt he drowned."

Zosopage says, "Hrmm."

Chamorr heartily asks, "Goodbye?"

Krilzin melodically asks, "Eaten?"

Leafiara offers Stormyrain a purple tri-cornered hat.

Blades says, "Should've brought booze."

Stormyrain accepts Leafiara's tri-cornered hat.

Stormyrain focuses her concentration, briefly studying the composition of a purple tri-cornered hat.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Darcena murmurs, "At least the company was good."

Speaking deeply to himself, Guarrin mutters, "Every bloody time with bloody chronomages."

Maags asks, "Is he lost in time, even lost for him?"

Maylan declares, "He escaped!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Stormyrain says, "There are no stories for me to pull from this."

Leafiara tentatively says, "Maybe he can come back through the portal that we opened in the Plinite Hollows in 5117."

Lylia whispers something to Xorus.

Shadows pass along Stormyrain's eyes.

Stormyrain offers Leafiara a purple tri-cornered hat.

Cruxophim calmly speculates, "Perhaps he arranged with her to 'escape' in exchange for this favor she requested."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Leafiara says, "No, no... it's for you."

Maylan assures, "He's fine, just fine."

Leafiara declines Stormyrain's offer.

Speaking to Guarrin, Ysharra asks, "How many times has that been, my friend?"

Speaking deeply to Ysharra, Guarrin says, "Too many."

Balley softly says, "Stormy what do you see."

Zosopage says, "If he wanted just to escape he wouldn't have shown up tonight."

Kembal says, "Hmm."

Stormyrain says, "A tricornered hat and Leafiara's hand."

Thrassus says, "He's gone for good, I think."

Darcena says, "Besides a large number of people staring at you."

Kembal says, "I'm not sure he escaped."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena says, "You had something in your eyes, there."

Speaking melodically to Leafiara, Krilzin asks, "He took your hand?"

Speaking nonchalantly to Zosopage, Cruxophim states, "Not in this time, they'd find him."

Stormyrain tucks a purple tri-cornered hat into a small pocket inside of her ebon lambskin jacket.

Speaking uncertainly to Krilzin, Leafiara says, "Don't think so."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena says, "It looked dark. Like a shadow."

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

Speaking to Cruxophim, Zosopage says, "That's true."

Darcena says, "Just right across both of them."

Darcena says, "Whoosh."

Stormyrain says, "Well then."

Cryheart says, "Well."

Darcena frets, "Should I be worried, pack?"

Darcena says, "I mean, my eyes do that all the time."

Cruxophim wryly mutters, "Methinks this is going exactly according to plan... only question is, whose?"

Lazaryth noncommittally says, "Mm."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Leafiara says, "If he ever comes back... you'll live longer than most of us here, so you have a high chance of finding him. And you had a good relationship with him."

Ysharra says, "Give her a moment."

Zosopage says, "I do not think he is coming back."

Ysharra says, "She's clearly pained by this."

Balley softly says, "Time will tell."

Leafiara sadly says, "All I wanted was to hand it back to him in a minute."

Maylan exclaims, "Of course not. He escaped!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Stormyrain murmurs, "I will keep it safe for him."

Lylia briskly says, "Excellent. Now that the Town Council is largely defunct, the mayoral office holds greater power, as it should. I look forward to the remainder of my term."

Balley softly says, "With everything else time will tell."

Roelaren says, "Perhaps he is unable to return."

Cryheart asks, "Well...shall we head back to town?"

Speaking to Xorus, Berkana asks, "What do you make of all this?"

Blades asks, "Yes your glorious mayorness?"

Leafiara says, "Not yet, I'd think..."

Leifa says, "After so much, perhaps it is a respite to not travel again and be querried."


The Changed Future

Shadows pass along Stormyrain's eyes.

Zosopage says, "Perhaps he perished. We don't know."

Maags says, "Maybes he was waiting for her to leave."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena asks, "Are you okay?"

Kembal asks, "Ok, what is going on with Stormy's eyes?"

Speaking to Berkana, Xorus says, "Kezmon Isle on the night of the storm is not the ideal travel destination."

Stormyrain murmurs, "I'm feeling fine."

Leafiara tentatively asks, "Maybe... moving into the lake would be a good idea?"

Lazaryth says, "Oh, you all are just encouraging her."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Avalera says, "You're looking rather odd."

Speaking evenly to Stormyrain, Cruxophim states, "Got something in your eye."

A thin line of blood appears down Stormyrain's left hand.

Stormyrain glances down.

Darcena asks, "Storm?"

Lazaryth says, "Alright, encourage her."

Lylia says, "There have been plans for a community garden in Shantytown, and I have had someone suggest an open-air concert hall...we have a great many plans to see to once the Blight is lifted, and..."

Blades says, "You look fine too."

Lylia turns to face Stormyrain.

Razanetika softly says, "Yea, she's so not alright."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Maylan says, "Yer leaking."

Krilzin melodically asks, "How deep is the water?"

Speaking to Stormyrain, Ysharra asks, "You are. But you're also being shown something, yes?"

A thin line of blood appears down Stormyrain's right hand.

Darcena worriedly frets, "Storm?"

Speaking to Ysharra, Stormyrain says, "Not yet, but I can feel it coming."

Speaking to Lylia, Eledryn asks, "I am pleased that you remember that, but now perhaps may not be the time?"

Razanetika whispers something to Leafiara.

Berkana asks, "How high is the mountain?"

Speaking to Stormyrain, Ysharra says, "...breathe."

Darcena says, "You're bleeding, Storm."

Leifa incredulously says, "Not again."

(Stormyrain holds her arms out to keep from bleeding on herself or anyone else.)

Leafiara whispers something to Razanetika.

Speaking to Eledryn, Maylan asks, "What better time to plant a garden than now?"

(OOC) Krilzin's player whispers to the group, "Is it just me or does Stormy always die in these events?"

Speaking to Cruxophim, Stormyrain says, "I'm fine." [he did a DIAGNOSE FULL]

Lazaryth irritatedly snaps, "Well, don't crowd her."

Lazaryth says, "That's my job."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Darcena says, "She's MY pack."

Speaking neutrally to Stormyrain, Cruxophim mouths, "Curious."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Stormyrain says, "Not really. You recognize the cuts as well as I do."

(OOC) Roelaren's player whispers to the group, "Not a normal bleed that an empath can heal."

Balley softly says, "What are you seeing Stormy."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maylan asks, "You do?"

Maags says, "I am glad it does not hurt yous but what is causing yous to bleed."

Speaking to Maylan, Stormyrain says, "Blood magic is blood magic, even if the practitioners use it differently."

Red mist seeps out of the cuts in Stormyrain's hands, seeping out like sanguine fog, swirling out before her in the shape of a funnel of blood.

Cruxophim calmly states, "I'll leave it to her to explain, if she wishes."

Cryheart says, "Hmmm."

Blades says, "That's probably not good."

Chamorr heartily says, "Good grief."

Roelaren says, "Not good at all."

Goldstr exclaims, "Sheesh!"

Chamorr heartily says, "It's him."

Kembal says, "Alright, then."

From within the mist, a hurried voice says, "...no time, there's no time, you must see..."

Darcena whispers something to Cruxophim.

Stormyrain offers, "I am fine. I'm just the vessel for a message--"

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

Krilzin melodically says, "That's a new one."

Balley softly says, "What must we see."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Ysharra says, "I believe you."

Cryheart asks, "Ok..we are getting a vision?"

Krilzin melodically says, "Raining blood, bloody trees, never talking blood."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk says, "A blood vision."

Speaking absently to Krilzin, Leafiara says, "Give it time."

Zolis deeply says, "Yes, keep the blood flowing."

Speaking in Dwarven, Cruxophim calmly mouths something you don't understand.

Stormyrain perspires delicately.

(Maylan tentatively and softly touches the blood funnel with the tip of her finger, then brings her finger to her lips.)

Cruxophim calmly warns, "Don't crowd her."

Speaking melodically to Leafiara, Krilzin says, "I must stop leaving these lands. Every time I come back something bad happens."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Maylan says, "You've been drinking."

Speaking offhandedly to Krilzin, Leafiara assures, "They never stop happening even when you're away."

Speaking to Maylan, Pukk asks, "Tastes like coffee, doesn't it?"

Speaking to Pukk, Maylan says, "Coffee and BOOZE."

Blades says, "I want a sip."

Speaking to Maylan, Stormyrain says, "I've not, and please don't do that again."

The red mist churns and a woman appears within. Her dark amethyst eyes look pained, and blood seeps from wounds on her own hands as well. Locks of pale silver hair curl out from the deep cowl of her silvery robe. She is panting and says, "no time....you must see..."

Maylan says, "Or maybe that's just what my finger tastes like."

Speaking melodically to Leafiara, Krilzin says, "Well that's good at least. I mean, uh, not for the Landing, but glad I'm not the cause."

Darcena says, "I don't like this at all."

Stormyrain murmurs, "What do we need to see?"

Thrassus asks, "Ah, future Stormyrain again?"

Cruxophim paces to his right, moving in a circle around Stormyrain.

Cruxophim drags his dagger through a jagged fresh blood-infused eight-pointed cruciform drawn in the dirt, tracing out complex symbols with the blade's fresh blood.

Cruxophim paces to his right, moving in a circle around Stormyrain.

Cruxophim drags his dagger through a jagged fresh blood-infused eight-pointed cruciform drawn in the dirt, tracing out complex symbols with the blade's fresh blood.

Cruxophim paces to his right, moving in a circle around Stormyrain.

Cruxophim drags his dagger through a jagged fresh blood-infused eight-pointed cruciform drawn in the dirt, tracing out complex symbols with the blade's fresh blood.

Chanting fervently to the Shadows, Cruxophim weaves his jawbone dagger through the air, drawing a tenebrous eight-pointed cruciform. Blood seeps out of the tip of the blade as he paints the pattern, which remains suspended in mid-air.

Speaking to Cruxophim, Stormyrain hisses, "Stop that."

The sound of chains dragging echo from within the red mist.

Cryheart says, "Hmmm."

Speaking worriedly to Cruxophim, Darcena frets, "Do not hurt her."

Speaking calmly to Darcena, Cruxophim asserts, "I'm not. I'm protecting her. And us."

Speaking to Blades, Berkana says, "I am surprised you haven't pulled out your knife."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Maylan says, "And I will help."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Stormyrain grumbles, "Salt would work just as damned well."

Lazaryth murmurs, "If this is the bleakworld again..."

Blades says, "Oh good point."

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena cautions, "Don't bite the messenger."

Lazaryth says, "Maylan -"

Roelaren says, "Just what I was gonna say."

Darcena quietly whispers aloud, "I get jealous."

Speaking calmly to Stormyrain, Cruxophim mutters, "Not for this."

Blades removes a steel-tipped warped glass knife coated with discolored blood from in his leather pants.

Guarrin whispers something to Ysharra.

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan asks, "Wha?"

Speaking to Lazaryth, Leafiara guesses, "Thinking on the scarabs?"

Stormyrain suddenly stumbles for no apparent reason.

Lazaryth distantly says, "I'm sure it's fine. Everything is fine."

(Stormyrain tosses her head briskly.)

Within the red mist, a sylvan woman appears with forest green eyes and creamy white skin. Her glossy raven hair is beaded with bloodstones. An ethereal incarnadine-hued collar clings to her neck, connected to ethereal chains at her hands and feet. Wounds, new and old, cover her arms and legs and dried blood cakes her skin. Balley's voice cracks, "She's over here."

Speaking to Balley, Pukk exclaims, "That was good! Do it again!"

Goldstr asks, "Who she be?"

Cruxophim calmly suggests, "You can infuse into it, if you know how."

Berkana says, "Xorus knows."

Speaking to Goldstr, Cruxophim whispers aloud, "Balley."

Chamorr heartily says, "This is Balley's vision."

Leifa says, "An apparition of the mind."

Ysharra whispers something to Guarrin.

Within the red mist, Balley appears, chained and caked in blood, and approaches the woman with amethyst eyes. "I found her, Master."

Thrassus asks, "So, killing the witch changed nothing, hm?"

Goldstr asks, "I means who Balley see?"

Stormyrain glances askance at Balley.

Krilzin melodically says, "This looks fun."

Razanetika softly says, "Intriguing."

Balley softly says, "I am not sure."

Krilzin melodically says, "And to think I was flirting with her just a short while ago."

Krilzin melodically says, "Really puts things in perspective."

Stormyrain breaks out in a sweat.

Lazaryth murmurs, "Perhaps Raznel had nothing to do with the Bleaklands. Perhaps it's all Stone, and he simply wanted her out of his way."

Within the red mist, the amethyst-eyed woman turns, blood still seeping from her palms. Four figures garbed in shadows appear near her, and they part to allow another to walk between them. The man's face is cast half in shadows and half in the blood red glow of the orb floating at his side. His sea blue eyes grin.

Leafiara says, "I doubt that the Balley of this future saw this in advance, like our Balley is... the future can always change."

Stormyrain growls, "Stone."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

From within the red mist, the amethyst-eyed woman growls, "Stone."

Goldstr asks, "Stone?"

Krilzin melodically says, "There's your answer."

(Stormyrain turns her distant gaze to Balley.)

Darcena dreamily says, "Oh, I do like him."

Speaking to Balley, Stormyrain murmurs, "And through everything, you still betray me?"

Within the red mist, Grishom approaches the woman with amethyst eyes and kneels, taking her chin in his hand. "We worked well together. You did well. They did well because of you."

Stormyrain clenches her jaw.

Speaking to herself, Stormyrain whispers aloud, "Get your hand off of me."

Leafiara tentatively says, "I'd like to think we would have done almost exactly what we did with or without the visions, but..."

Cruxophim wryly muses, "She's very excitable."

Krilzin melodically says, "I'm lost."

Krilzin melodically says, "Not in the sense of direction."

Within the red mist, Grishom Stone grins, reaching for an obsidian dagger at his side. "You did well, remember that. We cannot have a world of death, if we wish to create and go beyond. Now can we?"

Berkana says, "Ah, Stone."

Blades says, "Delicious."

Darcena yells, "Beyond to where, Stone?"

Thrassus says, "He has a point, I suppose."

Speaking to Xorus, Berkana asks, "Is that why you were amused?"

'Within the red mist, Grishom Stone kisses the amethyst-eyed woman on the forehead, "Rest now, you have served us well Seer." He plunges the black dagger into the woman's heart.

Leafiara curiously says, "A world of death? As opposed to..."

Stormyrain places a hand over her heart.

Speaking to Thrassus, Ysharra says, "Immortality in a place like the Bleaklands would be punishment, not paradise."

Darcena indignantly says, "Oh, well. I don't like that at all."

Xorus whispers something to Berkana.

Goldstr exclaims, "Ooof!"

Speaking to Stormyrain, Darcena says, "We're going to have to change his mind about that action."

Speaking quietly to himself, Cruxophim murmurs, "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

Berkana says, "I knew you knew."

Within the red mist, the amethyst-eyed woman does not scream. She does not shake. She does not quiver. Instead, she growls again and pushes her body against the blade. "No time...you must see..."

Stormyrain clenches her jaw.

Speaking calmly to Stormyrain, Darcena says, "Well, clearly, that can't come to pass."

Balley softly asks, "Stormy, how did this happen, why would I betray you? What happens?"

A snow white raven suddenly releases an ear-piercing shriek!

Speaking distractedly to Darcena, Stormyrain murmurs, "There are many things Grishom does not know."

Speaking to a snow white raven, Ysharra says, "Much as I love hearing that again, perhaps your timing could improve."

Within the red mist, the amethyst-eyed woman sings her final song and the air around the four shadowy figures bends and peels away, revealing the faces of Rekarth, Cruxophim, Xorus and Raelee. Grishom Stone's eyes open wide in surprise, then he smirks, before slicing his dagger across the amethyst-eyed woman's throat and the vision suddenly ends abruptly.


Contemplation

Xorus raises an eyebrow.

Berkana says, "Huh."

The red mist fades and seeps into the ground.

Cruxophim amusedly notes, "Curious."

Stormyrain suddenly stumbles for no apparent reason.

Raelee gives a sidelong glance at Cruxophim.

Cruxophim shrugs at Raelee.

Ysharra says, "...Rekarth."

Zosopage says, "Hrmm."

Stormyrain settles her gaze on Raelee, watching her intently.

Ysharra says, "Have not seen that face since..."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "He prefers it that way."

Krilzin melodically says, "I did not see that coming."

Xorus asks, "Is that what Rekarth looks like?"

'Balley softly says, "I am confused."

Cruxophim sardonically states, "Well, I'm shocked."

Cruxophim snickers.

Speaking musingly to Raelee, Leafiara says, "I guess that explains why Rodnay said Grishom guards your mind..."

Balley softly asks, "Crux do you know about any of this?"

Speaking amicably to Balley, Cruxophim muses, "Not a clue."

Stormyrain whispers something to Raelee.

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "I am aware, yes."

Balley softly asks, "Again with me in chains, am I his slave?"

Roelaren says, "I did not know anything of it."

Speaking dismissively to Balley, Cruxophim opines, "I wouldn't really trust visions, though. They're not always accurate, or correct, and can be misleading."

Leifa says, "He intends to control you and this is a warning, it seems."

Zosopage says, "That's obviously a vision of the future but is it set in stone? No pun intended."

Speaking to Leafiara, Raelee says, "It was a favor given, and the price was already paid."

Speaking indifferently to Balley, Cruxophim reminds, "Your fate is your own."

(Stormyrain slowly cleans her arms in the lake, murmuring quietly to herself.)

Stormyrain glances over her shoulder at Raelee.

Stormyrain nods faintly.

Cruxophim wryly explains, "She's going to need a bit to recover, I'm sure."

Cruxophim glances at Stormyrain.

Speaking to Stormyrain, Leafiara admits, "And here I was *just* thinking this afternoon that I had a promise from last year to keep with you... well, another night, I suppose."

Speaking to Balley, Goldstr exclaims, "Aye It be yer mind, nae his!"

Stormyrain dusts herself off.

Cruxophim rests a gentle hand on Balley.

Balley softly says, "I have kept my mind closed."

Balley softly exclaims, "It did no good!"

Speaking melodically to Balley, Krilzin asks, "You alright?"

Speaking reassuringly to Balley, Leafiara says, "Try not to trouble yourself over it. Now that you've seen the future, that puts you in a great position to change it."

Speaking gently to Balley, Cruxophim urges, "Keep at it."

Stormyrain wearily asks, "Unless anyone has an immediate question for me?"

Xorus whispers something to Cruxophim.

Balley softly says, "Maybe." [ambiguously a response to any out of Krilzin, Leafi, Crux, or Stormy]

Balley softly says, "I want to know how things came to be."

(Lazaryth looks over at Stormyrain with something like pity.)

Speaking to Stormyrain, Maags says, "Not now. yous should rest."

Cruxophim chuckles.

Cruxophim nods once at Xorus.

Stormyrain settles her gaze on Lazaryth, watching him intently.

Stormyrain raises her chin slightly in a show of defiance.

Lylia says, "No vision of the future is pre-ordained; it is more an indicator of a likely future. Otherwise, we would all be little clockwork figures, running our ordained paths, and no ability to make our own choices."

Cruxophim gives Stormyrain a strong, encouraging smile.

Cruxophim points at Lylia.

Wolfloner darkly says, "Like a moth to a flame she is drawn to magic."

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena mutters, "I feel like that's true a lot."

Stormyrain nods in agreement at Lylia.

Speaking to Stormyrain, Roelaren says, "Rest and then think on this vision and what it might mean."

Stormyrain says, "And the more we know, the better equipped to change any possible outcome we are."

Maags exclaims, "He cannot scare us into his version of the future!"

Wolfloner darkly says, "The more mysterious and unknown the stronger the desire."

Cruxophim nods once at Stormyrain.

Speaking to Maags, Maylan exclaims, "No he cannot!"

Leifa says, "Sometimes it is merely a warning."

Cruxophim acknowledges Ysharra with pernicious congeniality.

Darcena complains, "We can't even celebrate a little and solve the remaining problems before we're reminded of what's just around the corner?"

Darcena says, "This TOWN."

Darcena says, "I need a vacation."

Leafiara curiously says, "So, uh... who was the other person besides Crux, Raelee, and Xorus? Never seen that one."

Zosopage says, "It's what could be, not what will be...."

Blades says, "Illistim is a lovely place."

Maylan says, "Rekarth."

Stormyrain gives a sidelong glance at Leafiara.

Speaking to Leafiara, Darcena says, "Rekarth."

Speaking to Leafiara, Stormyrain says, "Rekarth."

Speaking amusedly to Leafiara, Cruxophim explains, "Rekarth? Oh, he's.... not visible much."

Cruxophim chuckles.

Leafiara admits, "Huh, never heard of him either, apparently..."

Speaking to Leafiara, Maylan says, "You know, the fella."

Ysharra says, "Rekarth has been around a long time."

Xorus says, "The Black Diabolist."

Darcena says, "I saw him just the other day, oddly."

Stormyrain nods in agreement.

Speaking to Leafiara, Maylan says, "He's looks like....a fella."

Goldstr exclaims, "We has gone 'gainst Stone before an will as we must. I still nae enters his bathhouse!"

Maags says, "Has not seen him forever."

Zosopage says, "I have seen him before."

Darcena says, "Well. A few weeks back."

Cruxophim calmly explains, "He's a bit of a reputation, the Black Diabolist... yes."

Leafiara suddenly says, "Oh, the Black Diabolist. Now *him* I've heard of."

Cruxophim calmly asserts, "Rumors and hearsay, I'm sure."

Roelaren says, "I avoid that evil place."

Cruxophim chuckles.

Leafiara recalls, "He was mentioned in some context about a mask..."

Leafiara dryly says, "Because we always, always discuss masks around here."

Speaking to Goldstr, Pukk says, "Bathhouses are evil."

Cruxophim starts chuckling at Leafiara!

Roelaren says, "That one is."

Berkana yells, "Hey Stone, get your stuff out of MY tower!"

Balley softly says, "I am saying sorry in advance Stormy. I have no way of knowing how I betray you."

Speaking calmly to Leafiara, Cruxophim reminds, "Masks are useful."

Speaking to Pukk, Goldstr exclaims, "Ye be right on dat one!"

Cruxophim rubs Balley tenderly.

Stormyrain looks over at Shinann and shakes her head.

Darcena says, "I need some warm blankets, a stout, and company."

Stormyrain says, "If you will all excuse me? I need to rest."

Balley softly says, "I have only done what you have told me. Keep my mind closed."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Leafiara acknowledges, "I have no trouble with anyone's fashion choices."

Cruxophim nods approvingly at Balley.

Kembal asks, "How about we all head back to town anyway?"

(Stormyrain lets her gaze fall briefly on Cruxophim, Xorus, and Raelee before turning away.)

Cryheart says, "Ok..time to head to town."

Stormyrain just went southwest.


Discussion Afterward

Cryheart says, "Moving."

[travel]

Leifa says, "She will need her rest."

Blades says, "Oh we walkin in a circle again."

Speaking amusedly to Blades, Leafiara says, "Not yet, no."

Speaking to Balley, Zosopage says, "It's not your fate but merely a possibility. Something he wants you to do but you control it."

[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 polished bleakstone statue and a large purple wooden barrel.

Speaking to Cryheart, Maylan asks, "What took you so long?"

Blades says, "Hes wearin a tin can."

Chamorr heartily says, "More confused than when the night started."

Lazaryth dully says, "I'm sure I'll get used to sleeping with a scarab burrowing around under my skin."

Lazaryth asks, "Won't I?"

Pukk says, "This was a interesting and blood filled night."

Krilzin melodically asks, "So that's it then?"

Speaking flippantly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Most of the interesting ones are."

Speaking to Xorus, Berkana says, "Please notice I only hug you and not impose myself upon your cheek."

Balley softly says, "Ok I need to go rest too, tonight has been a night of confusion."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "There's a possibility that it won't last long."

Lazaryth noncommittally says, "Mm."

Balley softly says, "And Leafi looks like those chains maybe..."

Ysharra says, "And...it won't be harvested, so..."

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk exclaims, "Stormy's blood tricks are to die for! She can do things with blood that will blow your mind!"

Speaking frankly to Balley, Leafiara says, "That was quite a bit uglier than last time."

Lazaryth says, "I don't know what to think now. Maybe it will."

Speaking gently to Balley, Leafiara says, "I wasn't gonna say anything."

Balley softly says, "I guess I should be more alert for Stone."

Zosopage asks, "Anyone have a stickpin?"

Speaking reassuringly to Balley, Leafiara says, "It'll be fine. We're here for you."

Balley softly says, "We shall see."

Balley softly says, "I just wish I know what I did, how I betrayed her."

[Leafi has to briefly step away]

Bernadette softly asks, "Wadja do?"

Balley softly says, "Yes."

Berost deeply asks, "How'd time mage end up?"

Balley softly says, "What worries me the most.."

Speaking to Berost, Leafiara says, "Maybe we'll find out in a few centuries..."

Berost deeply says, "Magicks."

Xorus says, "Grishom is a gentleman and a scholar, a man of fine tastes and most excellent fancy."

Balley softly says, "I changed my look."

Bernadette softly says, "Ahh."

Xorus says, "I am sure it will all work out well in the end."

Balley softly says, "My new look was in the vision."

Speaking to Xorus, Ysharra says, "You didn't answer my question."

Balley softly says, "So it is a newer vision."

Bernadette softly says, "Hmm."

Pukk asks, "Isn't Grishom human?"

Tolida says, "Yes."

Leafiara curiously says, "I'm still wondering what his alternative is to a 'world of death'."

Pukk says, "Huh and Xorus likes him."

Chamorr heartily says, "Please allow me to introduce myself."

Pukk says, "Don't that beat all."

Chamorr heartily says, "I'm a man of wealth and taste."

Xorus whispers something to Ysharra.

Leafiara says, "The obvious opposite would be a world of life, but..."

Speaking to Leafiara, Rasson says, "That is the problem with elves, their looks change so little through the centurieshard to gues how far in the future."

Balley softly asks, "Walk me home zoso?"

Zosopage says, "Of course."

Xorus says, "The potential of life to ascend beyond the Arkati."

Speaking to Balley, Pukk says, "I still say that was a great trick with throwing your voice like that."

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

Speaking curiously to Chamorr, Leafiara asks, "Wha?"

Speaking heartily to Leafiara, Chamorr says, "Try to go to sleep with that bouncin in me brain."

Speaking calmly to Chamorr, Leafiara says, "We just stopped three versions of the future last night. I'm sure we can handle stopping another one." [the three being the futures Balley and Stormy have received at different times in the past two years]

Tolida asks, "I would just like to personally know what that group of four was... all blood mages I assume?"

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "I hope you have some good news soon."

Lylia says, "No."

Speaking to Tolida, Leafiara says, "I don't think the Magister is one, at very least..."

Speaking heartily to Leafiara, Chamorr says, "Stone makes raznel look like da flower girl."

Something crawls around under Raelee's skin.

Raelee glances at Leafiara.

Tolida says, "I'm just trying to see the similiarities..."

Raelee glances down.

Raelee clenches her jaw.

(Raelee rubs at her arm momentarily, looking aggrieved.)

Speaking to Raelee, Leafiara adds, "I mean, even if you are, it's not like I care. Crux and Stormy are two of the people I admire most."

Lylia says, "I should sleep as well. It has been a long few days, and there are leagues to go before I can truly rest. The blight remains even if Raznel does not."

Speaking distractedly to Leafiara, Raelee says, "... I am an elementalist."

Speaking to Raelee, Leafiara says, "Doesn't stop Stormy."

Lylia whispers something to Xorus.

Speaking to Leafiara, Raelee says, "She has her focus, I have mine."
