WotA Kano
(6:40:33 PM): ((Better yet, is RT hiring telecommuters? :-) ))
WotA Jarek (6:40:55 PM): (( no kidding. maybe we should all move to mormon-land... ))
AussieScum
(6:40:57 PM): (( Heck, I want some of that deal myself! And a trip back to Denver ;-) ))
AussieScum
(6:41:31 PM): When last we left our group of adventurer's you had just returned to Ghostwood Keep after finding a kidnapped dwarven gargoyle artisan.
WotA Kano
(6:41:38 PM): ((If we all move there, Steve would have a home group at last. :-) ))
AussieScum (6:41:50 PM): (( Whee! ))
AussieScum
(6:42:21 PM): Before you were sidetracked on that little adventure, though, you had thought about following leads extracted from the elf spy and assassin Cynarre
AussieScum
(6:43:02 PM): By the time you returned to Ghostwood, the assassin had been executed. Asking about him when you returned you found out that your wishes for a speedy execution had been granted. The morning after you last left, the deed was done.
WotA Axton
(6:43:04 PM): ((but would we fit in in morman land))
AussieScum
(6:43:17 PM): (( Does it matter ? ))
AussieScum
(6:43:25 PM): (( I don't fit .. :-D ))
AussieScum
(6:43:40 PM): Any business you need to attend to before you leave Ghostwood again?

WotA Kano
(6:44:09 PM): (1. Of all of us other than Steve, only Joe has kids. 2. Most of us are, politically, not "red staters". There's your answers, Curtis.))

WotA Axton (6:45:09 PM): and i am just a cute as ever
AussieScum
(6:45:13 PM): OK, it seems you're all refreshed and once again you head out into the world, in the general direction of the Deverenian Empire
WotA Kano
(6:45:34 PM): "I've been this way once before...but I don't remember the way so much. I wasn't steering."
WotA Eirlys (6:46:01 PM): "Who was?"
WotA Kano
(6:46:05 PM): "Jarek."
WotA Jarek (6:46:05 PM): :: grin ::
WotA Jarek
(6:46:28 PM): "Steering? Little one, you weren't even walking."
WotA Kano
(6:46:45 PM): "Well, yeah, that's true. And, there was that whole thing with the blindfold..."
WotA Eirlys (6:46:48 PM): "How about a briefing, then, Jarek? It'd be nice to know what's normal when we're scouting."
WotA Eirlys
(6:46:59 PM): ::curious:: "Blindfold?"
WotA Kano
(6:47:09 PM): "Well, yeah."
WotA Kano (6:47:25 PM): "Though he gave up on that after a while."
WotA Eirlys (6:47:42 PM): ::waits a moment, then:: "You know, for a talkative person, you sometimes don't give much information."
WotA Kano
(6:47:58 PM): ::to Eirlys:: "And, no offense to Jarek, but you should know that the Deverenian Empire has a colossal stick up its collective arse."
WotA Kano (6:48:10 PM): "Just so you're knowing what to expect." ::grins::
WotA Daere (6:48:13 PM): ::mutters:: "At least not of the useful sort..."
WotA Jarek (6:48:30 PM): "We let you live, Kano. Be thankful."
WotA Daere
(6:48:38 PM): ::But then grins, as if in spite of herself...:: "Noted..."
WotA Kano (6:48:44 PM): "Well, ya see, Jarek was told to bring me back there. Well, not me in particular. And, I'm very thankful, Jarek, trust me!"
WotA Eirlys (6:48:48 PM): ::grins at both Daere and Kano:: "That, I can deal with."
WotA Kano
(6:49:09 PM): "I was lucky enough to be the very first nimbic that he came across...not that there's a lot of us to start with."
WotA Kano (6:49:30 PM): "And, I was lucky that I came across him when I did, because those ogres were *not* happy..."
WotA Eirlys (6:49:42 PM): "All right, so Jarek was told to find a random Nimbic and take them home. To a place where the stiff-necks rule. What kind of insanity is that?"
WotA Jarek
(6:49:53 PM): "Don't remind me about the damn ogres."
OnlineHost
(6:49:57 PM): WotA Kano rolled 1 20-sided die: 3
WotA Eirlys (6:50:08 PM): ::highly amused:: "Who came across whom?"
WotA Jarek
(6:50:24 PM): "It's called prophecy. My cousin Magnus's to be exact."
WotA Kano
(6:50:26 PM): "Hey, you were great against the ogres...that one just got in a lucky shot across the back of your head."

AussieScum
(7:49:29 PM): Your travels have brought you to Haranshee, a small but prosperous city near the Denskan border nestled in a lush river valley
AussieScum
(7:49:32 PM): It has felt the effects of the war, as displaced Denskans loyal to Deverenia have made their way here.
AussieScum
(7:49:34 PM): They seek sanctuary, but most find only a place to rest and a bot of food.
AussieScum
(7:49:37 PM): Crows perch atop the walls, looking for an easy meal.
AussieScum
(7:49:39 PM): Children play with wooden swords and shields as their parents erect shanty shelters against the outer walls.
AussieScum
(7:49:41 PM): The sick and injured lie in huddled masses, waiting for volunteers to tend to their hurts.
AussieScum
(7:49:44 PM): As you approach the gate to the city, children stop playing and stare at your armor and weapons with fear in their eyes.
AussieScum
(7:49:47 PM): They have seen the horrors of war first hand and they know how dangerous a heavily armed party can be.
AussieScum
(7:49:50 PM): Six city guards in white tabards direct traffic and peace-bond weapons.
AussieScum
(7:49:52 PM): They motion you forward after sending a battered group of mercenaries through the gate.
AussieScum
(7:49:56 PM): Their faces are hard and cold as one of them asks "What's your business in Haranshee?"
AussieScum
(7:50:15 PM): /bt
WotA Eirlys

WotA Eirlys

AussieScum
(7:51:35 PM): "All weapons are to be peace bonded while in the city. Dissenters may not enter. "
AussieScum

WotA Axton
(7:52:14 PM): no
WotA Jarek
(7:52:25 PM): "Our business is our own. We're only passing thru, perhaps gathering some information on the way."

WotA Daere (7:53:21 PM): ::snork::
AussieScum (7:53:49 PM): (( Hmmm, possibly. With the recent war and all, some of the smaller cities, without armies of knights to protect them, enforce this as a measure to keep the peace under all the tension ))
AussieScum
(7:54:03 PM): (( Stops brawls etc. Probably wouldn't seem out of place. This is a small city after all ))
AussieScum
(7:54:44 PM): "So we're a pit stop for you to gather supplies and hear what's on the road ahead? I can respect that. You may pass.... once you've bonded your blades"
WotA Kano
(7:55:10 PM): ::ties his dagger into its sheath::
WotA Jarek (7:55:18 PM): "Your rules mean little to me, little man. I am a Deverenian Knight and carry my blade as I see fit." :: beat :: "It just so happens I'm willing to carry it bonded today."

WotA Jarek

AussieScum (7:58:29 PM): Over yonder. It appears to be a tavern of sorts. It's even called "House of Ales"
WotA Eirlys

WotA Kano (7:59:50 PM): "Food? Wonder what they have to eat around here?"
WotA Jarek (7:59:52 PM): "Indeed. We are to protect all of Deverenia. In turn, we expect respect and aid."
WotA Kano
(8:00:15 PM): "Though, it looks like, around here, they aren't in the mood to trust anyone."
WotA Kano (8:00:29 PM): "Which probably explains the cranky reception we got."
WotA Daere (8:00:50 PM): "They can be as cranky as they like, as long as they have beer. I want off this damned horse."
WotA Jarek (8:01:05 PM): "We're near Denska. Much fighting there, last I heard."
WotA Daere
(8:01:19 PM): "Seems to be a lot of that going around."
WotA Kano (8:01:46 PM): "Yeah...if you hear of a place where there isn't, let me know. I might go there."
WotA Axton (8:01:50 PM): almost done

WotA Jarek

WotA Jarek (8:03:47 PM): "Nomads, mostly."
WotA Kano
(8:04:05 PM): "Hmmm...doubt there are any nimbic girls there, though."
WotA Eirlys (8:04:23 PM): "Depends on how curious they are, I suppose."
WotA Kano
(8:04:26 PM): "I have a hard time getting human or elf girls to take me seriously."
WotA Daere (8:05:12 PM): "Maybe you should try ogres. THEY were taking you pretty seriously."

AussieScum

WotA Kano
(8:06:38 PM): "Now, we should get one of those...travel in style.:"

WotA Eirlys
(8:06:54 PM): "And miss all the ambushes? No, thanks."

WotA Jarek (8:08:36 PM): 18
AussieScum
(8:08:42 PM): Doesn't seem to ring any bells.
WotA Jarek
(8:08:47 PM): (( is there such a thing as heraldry? ))
AussieScum
(8:08:59 PM): (( Who knows. Just typing what the mod says :-) ))
WotA Jarek
(8:09:07 PM): (( ah right ))
AussieScum
(8:09:09 PM): The man stops in front of you
AussieScum
(8:09:23 PM): "Please pardon the intrusion."
AussieScum
(8:09:27 PM): He bows gracefully.
WotA Dethel
(8:09:28 PM): :belated laughs at Kano's joke:
AussieScum
(8:09:47 PM): "My master wishes a word with you." He gestures to the carriage and smiles.
WotA Jarek
(8:10:05 PM): "Is he going to introduce himself?"
WotA Jarek
(8:10:15 PM): "Or would you like to?"
AussieScum
(8:10:38 PM): "How rude of me. I am Cadon. My master is Denton Bire and I believe he has a proposition for you"
WotA Daere
(8:10:53 PM): ::mouthes the word "Sir?"...:: ;-)
AussieScum (8:11:07 PM): "He is the right hand man of Arkon Forss"
AussieScum
(8:11:45 PM): (( Gimme another roll ono nobility or local deverenia if you have it ))
WotA Jarek

AussieScum (8:12:20 PM): Roll that ;-)
WotA Jarek (8:12:22 PM): 19
AussieScum
(8:12:31 PM): You worship The Storm, do you not?
WotA Jarek
(8:12:35 PM): of course
AussieScum
(8:12:46 PM): Then of course you've heard of him
AussieScum
(8:12:59 PM): He's a prominent member of the government of the city here. But that's not his main claim to fame.
WotA Dethel
(8:13:03 PM): I've got religion
AussieScum
(8:13:22 PM): He's responsible for the current popularity of the Church of the Storm in the city.
AussieScum
(8:13:35 PM): In fact, he sponsored the rededication of a local place of worship
WotA Kano
(8:13:41 PM): ((True, Dethel, but you don't worship...THE STORM! *duh duh DUH!* ;-)))
WotA Jarek (8:13:54 PM): (( stop that, elan ))
WotA Kano
(8:14:03 PM): ((:-D))
AussieScum (8:14:12 PM): (( I'm only giving Vic a roll because Jarek is a follower o *duh duh DUH* THE STORM ))
WotA Jarek
(8:14:44 PM): "Well, anything for Lord Fors. Lead on, Cadon."
AussieScum
(8:14:44 PM): (( So, you going to enter the carriage and talk business with Denton ? ))
WotA Daere
(8:15:03 PM): ((All of us, or just Jarek?))
WotA Kano (8:15:07 PM): ::pipes up:: "Just Jarek?"
AussieScum (8:15:07 PM): You are all invited
WotA Dethel
(8:15:08 PM): ((Is it))
WotA Axton
(8:15:14 PM): enter
WotA Dethel
(8:15:28 PM): :Enter, after Jarek:
AussieScum
(8:15:31 PM): The inside of the black carriage is well appointed and tastefull decorated.
WotA Daere
(8:15:32 PM): ::looks wistfully over her shoulder at the tavern::
WotA Kano (8:15:36 PM): (("You're all invited, of course. Problems with your droid?"))
WotA Daere (8:15:45 PM): ((No, no problem...))
WotA Daere (8:16:00 PM): ::sighs and follows::
WotA Eirlys (8:16:00 PM): ::will enter last to be right by the door::
WotA Kano
(8:16:03 PM): ::hop up into the carriage::
AussieScum (8:16:03 PM): Rich velvet cushions adorn the seats and curtains tastefully drape over the windows.
WotA Kano
(8:16:21 PM): ::quietly:: "Oooh, I'd like a vest made out of that velvet..."
AussieScum (8:16:24 PM): Sitting comfortably inside (it's a carriage of holding!) is a serious looking young man.
AussieScum
(8:16:39 PM): He has handsome features despite the thin white scar that stretches over his cheek.
AussieScum
(8:16:55 PM): The driver closes the door and after a moment you feel the carriage begin to move down the cobbled street.
AussieScum
(8:17:07 PM): "Well, I must admit, you look like a formidable lot", he says in a low voice.
WotA Kano
(8:17:20 PM): "I do?"
WotA Kano (8:17:28 PM): ::looks proud::
AussieScum (8:17:34 PM): "I have been sent to collect you. There's been a ... complication. But don't worry. It's nothing you can't handle."
AussieScum
(8:17:49 PM): He chuckles and sits back with an unsettling smile.
WotA Eirlys
(8:17:53 PM): "Collect?"
WotA Daere
(8:18:03 PM): "Sent by?..."
WotA Eirlys (8:18:07 PM): "For whom?"
AussieScum
(8:18:33 PM): "Lord Forss, of course. So tell me, Master Kano. How fares your study of magic?"
WotA Jarek
(8:18:39 PM): :: ahem :: "Master Bire, can you elucidate a little?"
AussieScum
(8:18:57 PM): "I hear that you are the master of creatures not of this world"
WotA Eirlys
(8:19:13 PM): ::carefully keeps her face neutral::
WotA Daere
(8:19:33 PM): ::eyebrow is climbing again...::
AussieScum (8:19:50 PM): "All in good time, Sir Jarek. Your expertise with the blades is not unknown. I'm sure Lord Forss will have many details for you. I hear you've had the odd skirmish or two along the road these past few weeks?"
WotA Dethel
(8:19:57 PM): :looks shocked:
WotA Daere
(8:20:04 PM): ::there goes the other one...::
WotA Kano (8:20:08 PM): "Magic? Well, pretty good..."
WotA Kano (8:20:18 PM): "I summoned a beetle!"
WotA Eirlys (8:20:22 PM): ::bites her tongue::
WotA Kano
(8:20:25 PM): "A huge one..."
AussieScum (8:20:40 PM): He notices the eyebrows go sky high. "Misstress Daere, the huntress. Tell me, where did you learn to use a bow so well?"
WotA Jarek
(8:21:01 PM): :: let out a good laugh at everyone's reactions ::
WotA Axton
(8:21:05 PM): finally done
AussieScum
(8:21:07 PM): To Kano: "Bigger than the average beetle, from what I hear"
WotA Daere
(8:21:22 PM): "Outside. Which is really where I'd prefer to be, if you're going to keep being creepy..."
WotA Kano (8:21:33 PM): ::starts to nod, then looks at the reactions of the others, and suddenly shushes::
WotA Kano (8:21:43 PM): "Ummm...how did you hear?"
AussieScum (8:21:43 PM): Denton lets out a laugh.
WotA Axton
(8:22:11 PM): ((sorry all for the interruption))
AussieScum
(8:22:15 PM): "Although, it is interesting that you 3, well, 4, I almost didn't see the ever sneaky Eirlys in the corner there, are in the company of an elf and a nothrog"
WotA Dethel
(8:22:25 PM): "Why keep an eye on us?"
WotA Kano
(8:22:25 PM): ((np))
WotA Jarek (8:22:44 PM): "Not necessarily by choice, my good man."
AussieScum
(8:23:04 PM): "Tell me, Axton, have you plans on returning home and having words with your weapon master. It appears that he didn't do that good a job teaching you. Luck has not been on your side in battle recently, has it?"
WotA Kano
(8:23:12 PM): "They're all my friends. What's so strange about that?"
WotA Daere (8:23:26 PM): ((Ooooh, cheap shot! :-P))
AussieScum (8:23:30 PM): "Friendship often overcomes the usual racial boundaries"
AussieScum
(8:23:40 PM): (( A jab at Axton, courtesy of the die bot! :-D ))
WotA Axton
(8:24:00 PM): yes i may be going home to talk to him and it battles have not been as i would have like
WotA Axton
(8:24:02 PM): d
AussieScum
(8:24:10 PM): "Why keep an eye on you indeed, Dethel"
AussieScum
(8:24:28 PM): "An elf, travelling with his race's usual enemies is not something to worry about, now, is it?"
WotA Kano
(8:24:35 PM): "Daere's right. You're creepy."
WotA Axton (8:24:37 PM): ((right steve.... it is all the die-bots fault))
WotA Dethel
(8:24:39 PM): "Is it?"
AussieScum
(8:24:43 PM): "But tell me, have you worked out which of the Elements you wish to worship yet?"
WotA Daere
(8:25:00 PM): "Seriously, I'm about to start testing doorhandles, here... if you've got a point to make, enough with the showing off and more with the getting to it."
WotA Axton (8:25:12 PM): ((was that to me??)
AussieScum
(8:25:21 PM): (( last comment to Joe, sorry ))
WotA Axton
(8:25:28 PM): np
AussieScum
(8:25:35 PM): "I do not mean to unsettle you, my lady"
WotA Jarek
(8:25:39 PM): :: chuckle :: "That's not his job, Daere. He's just entertaining us during the ride."
WotA Dethel
(8:25:43 PM): ((Anyone else in the party worship Elements? :-D))
WotA Daere
(8:25:51 PM): ((Did I mention that the ranger/scout is mildly claustrophobic? :-D))
WotA Jarek (8:25:53 PM): (( ugh. no. ))
WotA Kano
(8:25:56 PM): ((I worship molybdenum.))
WotA Axton (8:25:58 PM): ((no just animals))
WotA Eirlys
(8:26:00 PM): "No need to test them, Daere."
WotA Eirlys
(8:26:25 PM): "Care to share a piece of window?"
WotA Axton
(8:26:35 PM): ((my totem is the wolverine))
AussieScum
(8:26:35 PM): "You may leave at any time. I am sorry to have upset you. This has been been as much for my entertainment as to see your reactions"
WotA Daere
(8:26:51 PM): ::nods and scoots into the closest thing resembling jumping position she can manage::
AussieScum (8:27:05 PM): "Word has reached my master of your talents. You were apparently caught in the middle of the trouble in Ghostwood Keep and fared well"
AussieScum
(8:27:27 PM): "Lord Forss has need of some people with talent. So he's been watching you to see if perhaps you could fit his needs"
AussieScum
(8:27:41 PM): .
AussieScum
(8:27:42 PM): .
WotA Axton
(8:27:46 PM): well that is nice of him
AussieScum
(8:27:51 PM): It is not long after this that the carriage stops.
WotA Axton
(8:28:07 PM): get out
AussieScum
(8:28:09 PM): You are outside a large wrought iron gate in front of a large two story home.
WotA Dethel
(8:28:30 PM): ((Did our horses follow us?))
AussieScum
(8:28:44 PM): Your prospective employer lives in a two-story house surrounded by a manicured lawn and a low stone wall.
AussieScum
(8:28:47 PM): (( Sure ))
WotA Axton
(8:28:49 PM): i would have attached mine to the carage
AussieScum
(8:29:04 PM): Two armed guards stand at the ornate double doors, and a groom stands ready to open the carraige door and help you down
AussieScum
(8:29:16 PM): (( He had lackeys bring them. Every lord needs lackeys ))
WotA Axton
(8:29:21 PM): help ME down
WotA Jarek
(8:29:39 PM): (( help you squeeze out the human-sized opening, more like ))
AussieScum
(8:29:40 PM): The groom looks at Axton and takes a step back.... a little shocked
WotA Axton
(8:29:41 PM): i just need slaves
WotA Axton
(8:29:50 PM): climb out
AussieScum
(8:30:02 PM): Once you are all out, you are led inside.
AussieScum
(8:30:16 PM): His house is immaculuate and full of treasures from across the world.
AussieScum
(8:30:30 PM): You only have a moment to look at them though, as you are led into an exquisite reception room.
AussieScum
(8:31:02 PM): This room is softly lit by wall mounted gloves containing continual flames and a wide fireplace in the northern wall.
AussieScum
(8:31:13 PM): A massive oak tables in the center of the room is surrounded by a dozen comfortable chairs
WotA Daere
(8:31:18 PM): ((... I presume you mean globes?))
AussieScum (8:31:25 PM): A regal, well dressed man enters shortly after.
AussieScum
(8:31:37 PM): (( Yes, B and V are right next to each other on the keyboard :-) ))
WotA Daere
(8:31:43 PM): ((If there are creepy burning floating disembodied hands in here, I'm soooooooooo leaving...))
WotA Kano (8:31:47 PM): ((I like the gloves, actually.))
AussieScum (8:31:57 PM): He has that commanding yet comfirting presence that usually puts people at ease.
WotA Eirlys
(8:31:57 PM): ((of course not! Think of the Arby's commerical gloves, glowing ;-) ))
AussieScum
(8:32:21 PM): Your immediate impression is that this man is accustomed to getting what he wants and is not someone to be trifled with.
WotA Jarek
(8:32:23 PM): :: take a seat, order a drink (before he arrives) ::
WotA Axton
(8:32:37 PM): :-P
WotA Dethel (8:32:58 PM): :sits when Jarek does:
AussieScum
(8:33:00 PM): He spends some time chatting with you briefly, asking about your skills and experiences (which we can bypass, since it's 11:30 ET )
WotA Dethel
(8:33:11 PM): :rises when F enters
WotA Axton
(8:33:27 PM): try to find a chair to fit my frame
AussieScum
(8:33:42 PM): "Well, I have a problem. I want you to solve it for me"
WotA Jarek
(8:33:51 PM): (( be surprisingly open and frank, laugh heartily, etc. ))
AussieScum
(8:33:53 PM): (( One can be arranged for your massive green backside, Axton ))
WotA Axton
(8:33:53 PM): what does it pay
WotA Daere
(8:34:09 PM): ::tries not to touch anything expensive-looking::
WotA Kano (8:34:35 PM): ::Once he asks me about me, I have a hard time shutting up. :-) ::
AussieScum (8:34:44 PM): :: Looks at Jarek :: "Nothrog. Don't you just love them" ::smiles::
WotA Axton
(8:34:46 PM): thats normal
AussieScum
(8:35:03 PM): "To answer your question, 250 gold coins each, upon successful completion"
AussieScum
(8:35:12 PM): "But perhaps you'd like to hear the details of the job?"
WotA Jarek
(8:35:15 PM): "You have imposed on their drinking, m'lord."
AussieScum
(8:35:25 PM): "Ah, well, we'll rememdy that now"
AussieScum
(8:35:30 PM): ::claps his hands::
AussieScum
(8:35:35 PM): Servants appear.
WotA Axton
(8:35:36 PM): looks around........ 250 gp looks around some more
WotA Eirlys
(8:35:37 PM): "Details are always useful."
AussieScum
(8:35:58 PM): "Bring these fine people whatever it is they'd like to drink. Some food too, I think"
AussieScum
(8:36:16 PM): He details the job as food and beverages appear
WotA Axton
(8:36:17 PM): a good red wine for me please
AussieScum
(8:36:39 PM): "A Cardinal Uloft, of the Church of the Storm arrived here three days ago with a small entourage"
WotA Jarek
(8:36:49 PM): (( define a nothrog's sense of 'good red wine' :-P))
WotA Axton
(8:36:55 PM): when drinking the wine..... axtons pinky finger is extended
WotA Daere
(8:37:01 PM): ::tries to pretend she is not baffled by the array of forks::
AussieScum (8:37:22 PM): "He was greeted with uneasy stares for the most part, along with some angry rants"
AussieScum
(8:37:53 PM): "An angry mob of townspeople crowded the entry of the church, cursing the Cardinal and pelting two of his acolytes with rotten fruit"
WotA Jarek
(8:38:00 PM): "Rants, m'lord?"
WotA Axton
(8:38:03 PM): ((it is not what u think jarek..... the wine is just like the stuff u would drink. normally 1gp per glass))
WotA Eirlys
(8:38:21 PM): "Why?"
AussieScum
(8:38:32 PM): "There are several miscreants in this city who do not want the Church of the Storm gaining in power here. There have been ... demonstrations"
WotA Jarek
(8:38:44 PM): :: snort :: "Fools."
WotA Eirlys
(8:38:57 PM): ::raises an eyebrow::
WotA Jarek
(8:39:09 PM): :: shrug apologetically :: "Sorry, m'lord, continue please."
WotA Dethel
(8:39:18 PM): :listens attentively:
AussieScum
(8:39:22 PM): "Indeed. However, we are not forcing people to worship the mighty Storm."
AussieScum
(8:39:36 PM): "At least, not yet..." ::smiles easily::
WotA Eirlys
(8:39:56 PM): ::frowns::
AussieScum
(8:39:59 PM): "However, after two days of this, Captain Haifax, head of the guard, was forced to station guards outside the church"
AussieScum
(8:40:09 PM): "The peace still needs to be maintained, you understand"
WotA Jarek
(8:41:09 PM): "Of course."
AussieScum
(8:41:11 PM): Not long after his arrival, his attendants discovered that someone was trying to poison the Cardinal's food"
WotA Dethel
(8:41:16 PM): :reacts no one whit - outwardly:
WotA Daere
(8:41:20 PM): ::stops chewing::
AussieScum (8:41:22 PM): "The would be assassin managed to escape, unfortunatley"
AussieScum
(8:41:59 PM): "The Cardinal is here for the dedication ceremony for the Church, if I haven't mentioned that already"
WotA Axton
(8:42:03 PM): brb
AussieScum (8:42:20 PM): "He's a perfectionist, and the night before the ceremony, he held a rehearsal."
AussieScum
(8:42:34 PM): "He made them do it six times before he was happy with the result"
WotA Jarek
(8:42:43 PM): "Was the assassin at least seen by someone?"
WotA Kano
(8:42:52 PM): ::whispers:: "Colossal."
WotA Jarek (8:42:56 PM): "When is the dedication then?"
AussieScum
(8:42:58 PM): "Unfortunately not"
WotA Daere
(8:43:01 PM): ::glances over at Kano:: "Col
AussieScum (8:43:07 PM): "The dedication was to be today."
WotA Daere
(8:43:08 PM): ((GOOMB!!!))
WotA Eirlys (8:43:26 PM): "And the participants weren't happy? That seems to be a silly reason to poison someone."
WotA Axton
(8:43:36 PM): b
WotA Daere
(8:44:02 PM): ::snickers, almost chokes on ale::
AussieScum (8:44:24 PM): "The thing is, that we don't know what happened after that"
WotA Kano
(8:44:34 PM): "What do you mean?"
WotA Dethel (8:44:44 PM): "After what, sir"
AussieScum
(8:45:08 PM): "One of the guards was almost positive that the practise was 6 times. They were told to stay outside during the ceremony practises by the Cardinals personal guard - a quartet of Black Sun Paladins"
AussieScum
(8:45:29 PM): "After it went quiet - very suddenly quiet - the guards opened the door and peeked in"
AussieScum
(8:45:48 PM): "The four Paladins, are now petrified, one in each corner of the church, supposedly where they were standing post
AussieScum
(8:45:53 PM): "The Cardinal is gone"
AussieScum
(8:46:02 PM): "No one has seen him since the start of the rehearsal"
AussieScum
(8:46:08 PM): "I need him found"
WotA Eirlys
(8:46:15 PM): "Who else was in there? "
WotA Jarek
(8:46:24 PM): "Yes, what of the acolytes?"
WotA Axton
(8:46:30 PM): r the palidens still there??
AussieScum
(8:47:05 PM): "The Cardinal, his guards and a pair of acolytes"
AussieScum
(8:47:18 PM): "The other 6 are all statues now. There is no trace of the Cardinal"
WotA Kano
(8:47:29 PM): "That's really weird."
WotA Eirlys (8:48:02 PM): "Could he have made them statues?"
AussieScum
(8:48:05 PM): (( Gonna wrap it here, after you ask any other questions you may have ))
WotA Jarek
(8:48:26 PM): "We'll need access to the church, obviously. And the Cardinal's quarters and remaining staff as well."
AussieScum
(8:48:36 PM): "It would be unusual for a Cardinal of the Storm to do that to his personal guard. The Black Sun Paladins are loyal to death"
AussieScum
(8:48:46 PM): "I'm sure that Jarek could give you exquisite detail on them"
WotA Dethel
(8:48:54 PM): "Are the guards & alcolyes stoned, or just immobile?"
AussieScum
(8:48:55 PM): "You'll have whatever access you need."
WotA Eirlys
(8:48:57 PM): "Seems to me that the whole situation is unusual."
WotA Kano
(8:49:05 PM): "Unless it wasn't the Cardinal...or, he wasn't himself."
AussieScum (8:49:16 PM): "They are petrified. Solid Stone."
AussieScum
(8:49:26 PM): "That, my dear, is an understatement"
WotA Eirlys
(8:49:27 PM): "Or he was controlled, or ... any number of things."
WotA Axton
(8:49:37 PM): magic stuff, never trusted it
WotA Eirlys
(8:49:49 PM): "Can't someone turn them back?"
WotA Kano
(8:50:10 PM): ::whistles:: "That'd be a powerful spell."
AussieScum (8:50:13 PM): "At this time, we do not have those resouces available"
WotA Dethel
(8:50:16 PM): "Were the doors still locked when someone entered?"
WotA Kano
(8:50:19 PM): "Bet the Cardinal could do it...if he were here."
WotA Eirlys (8:50:24 PM): ::nods::
WotA Jarek
(8:50:59 PM): "If I may, m'lord, where were you when this happened? You were going to attend the ceremony... but not the rehearsal?"
WotA Jarek
(8:51:17 PM): (( the guards outside were the first to peek in, joe. right? ))
AussieScum
(8:51:51 PM): "Let me put it this way...."
WotA Axton
(8:51:52 PM): were there any other doors into/out of the room
AussieScum
(8:52:04 PM): "After the first three iterations, I had other things to do...."
WotA Dethel
(8:52:18 PM): ((Wasn't taking things literally there, Vic))
WotA Jarek
(8:52:20 PM): :: chuckle :: "I understand."
AussieScum
(8:52:29 PM): "I left the minutia to the Cardinal to take care of, he seemed to have it under control"
WotA Dethel
(8:52:35 PM): ((But with the magic used, it probably doesn't matter))
WotA Dethel
(8:53:00 PM): "Who would benefit from the Cardinal's disappearance?"
AussieScum
(8:53:12 PM): "The doors weren't locked to begin with. The Black Sun guards told the cit guards that if they entered uninvited during the rehearsal, they would be killed on the spot"
AussieScum
(8:53:27 PM): "If you've ever met one of them, you know that they don't kid around"
WotA Kano
(8:53:44 PM): ::Kano nods vigorously::
AussieScum (8:53:45 PM): "Any of the town's miscreants?"
WotA Jarek
(8:54:31 PM): "Right. Well, thank you for the hospitality, m'lord. I imagine we'll be starting with the church and working our way back from there. Will Cadon or Denton be at our disposal?"
WotA Axton
(8:55:06 PM): and may we have a writ that gives us permission to do the investigation
AussieScum
(8:55:17 PM): "If you need them, I can arrange for Cadon to take you where ever you need"
WotA Dethel
(8:55:18 PM): "Can you give us any names, my Lord?"
WotA Jarek
(8:55:27 PM): (( writ? we don't need no stinking writ. ))
AussieScum
(8:55:29 PM): "And Denton will be available for reports and updates, and any questions you may have"
WotA Kano
(8:55:39 PM): "Yeah...obviously, there were some people who weren't happy...the stone-throwers..."
AussieScum (8:56:03 PM): "You will not need a writ. No one will interfere with you here"
WotA Jarek
(8:56:29 PM): "Just one last question... Who opposing the re-dedication the most? Members of the community or the city council?"
WotA Kano
(8:56:34 PM): "I think Axton and Jarek are all the writ we need." ::grins::
WotA Axton (8:56:55 PM): O:-)
WotA Daere (8:56:57 PM): "Some of us may have a little more luck blending in with the local, um, miscreants than others..."
WotA Eirlys (8:57:06 PM): ::chuckles::
AussieScum
(8:57:11 PM): "Community members. I don't believe that the government is behind it. Appears to be the local heretics who don't believe in the truth that is The Storm"
AussieScum
(8:58:03 PM): "May the all powerful Storm grant you the power you need to complete this assignment, Jarek."
WotA Jarek
(8:58:13 PM): :: bow ::
AussieScum
(8:58:25 PM): "Succeed in this and I will speak on your behalf when it comes time for your promotion within your order"
WotA Daere
(8:58:38 PM): ::finishes free chow quickly, before they get dismissed...::
WotA Eirlys (8:59:00 PM): ::eyes turn calculating for a moment, then clear::
AussieScum
(8:59:10 PM): :: smiles winningly :: "Fail and, well, I will also speak on your behalf...." :: he leaves that threat hanging ::
WotA Axton
(8:59:12 PM): see if i can get a bottle of the wine
AussieScum
(8:59:25 PM): (( Would you expect anything else from a Colossal Deverenian, Vic? :-D ))
WotA Kano
(8:59:39 PM): :-D
AussieScum (8:59:54 PM): (( Those who survive will be rich. Those who fail will be forever screwed ))
WotA Jarek
(8:59:57 PM): :: smile in understanding ::
WotA Eirlys
(9:00:15 PM): ((Is "Colossal" a card thing? Or did I miss something? :-( ))
WotA Axton
(9:00:23 PM): ((can i do the screwing......?????:-D))
WotA Dethel
(9:00:25 PM): :looks to Jarek:
WotA Daere
(9:00:31 PM): ((Nah, it was Kano's offhand comment. About the Colossal Stick up the Arse.))
WotA Jarek (9:00:41 PM): (( way back to Kano's description of Deverenia ))
WotA Eirlys
(9:00:47 PM): ((Ahhh! Right, thanks!))
WotA Jarek
(9:00:59 PM): :: we can go now ::
WotA Kano
(9:01:03 PM): ((I think it has stuck. :-) ))
WotA Daere (9:01:05 PM): ::follows::
WotA Eirlys (9:01:05 PM): (long week already :-/ ))
WotA Axton
(9:01:19 PM): thanks..... stand up and start leaving
AussieScum
(9:01:23 PM): I need to go look up the rites of Order Arcadis when I get home now
WotA Kano
(9:01:33 PM): "Thank you, sir." ::bows::
AussieScum (9:01:34 PM): See what their rituals of promotion are :-)
WotA Daere (9:01:40 PM): ((My vote, for next session... do the terrible horrible scary thing that we should never do... Split the Party!))
WotA Jarek (9:01:48 PM): Order Aedroud, actually. House Arcadis is part of it.
AussieScum
(9:02:13 PM): Ah, there you go :-)
WotA Jarek (9:02:17 PM): but, either way, shiny!
AussieScum
(9:02:19 PM): OK, on that note, I believe we are done? :-)
WotA Jarek (9:02:29 PM): good and
WotA Daere
(9:02:30 PM): I think Eirlys and I (possibly others) may have a little more luck empathizing with the local malcontents without our own Colossal along. ;-)
AussieScum (9:02:33 PM): At least I found a way to get your knighthood moving :-)
