Niiman, day 9 of the month Phoenatos...

[Hall of the Body]
Vibrant colors fill the room, giving the impression of strength and stamina. The walls display scenes of might and glory, and altars of gold, crimson and blue sit before them, gold at the north, crimson at the east and blue at the west. A small corridor through the ice provides a passage to the northeast.
Obvious exits: northeast, down.

Thillieir grins.

Stasia's group just arrived.

Thillieir says, "too true"

Stasia sits down.

Yfa says, "how delightful"

Jestin grumbles.

Yfa says, "such a holy place"

You say, "Well, evening Yfa."

Yfa chuckles.

You say, "This is a surprise."

Aranrhod glances at Yfa.

Aranrhod just opened a tightly woven spidersilk sack.
Aranrhod removes a porcelain Lumnis statue from in her spidersilk sack.

Yfa says, "it shall be filled with altars to Amasalen soon enough"

Jestin mutters needtogobacktos.

Jestin grumbles.

Aranrhod says, "No"

You blink at Yfa.

Yfa smiles at Thillieir.

Yfa says, "sure I will"

You say, "I hardly think so."

Ianivin says, "Doubtful."

Shaylazar asks, "You mean if it still stands?"

Yfa begins chuckling at Thillieir.

Jestin asks, ""Really? He planning to replace all the Gods?"

You ask, "So what brings ye to the temple, Yfa?"

Jestin peers quizzically at Yfa.

Yfa says, "why replace them, they can serve him"

Jestin grins.

Ianivin laughs!

Thillieir asks, "the gods? Serve a lesser power?"

Thillieir laughs!

Jestin says, "Feel free to do that to those of Lornon"

Jestin grins.

Sabitor just arrived.

Yfa says, "you should all swear allegiance to him while you can"

Sabitor blinks.

Aranrhod says, "Never"

You glance at Yfa.

Shaylazar shakes her head.

Stasia raises an eyebrow in Yfa's direction.

Thillieir asks, "why does he need Onar to do his dirty work?"

Stasia shakes her head.

Yfa says, "suit yourself, you can burn in eternal agony if not"

Thillieir peers quizzically at Yfa.

Yfa asks, "Onar?"

Thillieir nods to Yfa.

You ask, "Eternal agony?"

Thillieir says, "he's allied with Onar"

Kalsey just arrived.

Aranrhod says, "We will not burn"

You ask, "Ye think Amasalen so powerful?"

Ianivin says, "I didn't swear allegience to him, even after he grabbed hold of me in the snow."

Thillieir says, "I've proof"

Aranrhod glances at Yfa.

You blink at Yfa.

Yfa smirks.

Yfa asks, "proof eh?"

Thillieir nods.

Swiftstar just arrived.

Thillieir says, "a lot of proof"

Sabitor furrows his brow.

Yfa says, "He certainly is allied with Luukos"

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

Yfa chuckles.

Yfa asks, "but Onar?"

Yfa says, "you have been drinking"

Thillieir says, "yes, Onar"

You say, "With Luukos I know he is allied."

Jestin smiles at Shaylazar.

Shaylazar nods.

You squint at Yfa.

Jestin grins.

Ianivin whispers, "Not good.. I agree with her about him drinking.."

Shaylazar smiles.

Arimantis just arrived.

Thillieir says, "I'd tell you my proof, but I don't trust you"

You blink at Yfa.

Yfa says, "you know Iscikella..."

Arimantis glances at Yfa.

Arimantis smirks.

Thillieir nods to Yfa.

Ryever says, "Ahhh."

Sabitor raises an eyebrow in Yfa's direction.

Yfa says, "when your lover is dead"

(Iscikella rubs her cheek.)

Lady Ilvane just arrived.

Thillieir says, "but you'll never get that out of me"

You glance at Yfa.

Jestin nods to Arimantis.

Yfa says, "you'll have no hope of saving this town."

Armaxis leans on his staff.

Jestin says, "Not enough water"

Jestin sighs.

Ilvane stares off into space.

Jestin says, "Next time"

You say, "Ye won't kill Thurfel, Yfa."

You look at Yfa and shake your head.

Yfa taps Ilvane lightly on her shoulder.

Silon's group just arrived.

Silon nods to Damet.

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

Ilvane says, "Just what I want to see when coming to my lords altar."

Yfa says, "you should join up while you can"

Ilvane glances at Yfa.

Damet puts on a bronze Luukos symbol.

Yfa exclaims, "He is all but dead!"

Sabitor glances at Ilvane.

Aranrhod blinks.

Ianivin places his hand on his Ronan medallion.

You glance at Yfa.

Yfa smiles at Silon.

Ilvane says, "Take kindly and don't touch me."

Swiftstar smirks.

Arimantis says, "So you say Yfa.. buts I know you won take this town"

Damet says, "greetings Yfa, I am Damet from the Church of Luukos"

Yfa says, "He is nothing more than a trace of himself"

Armaxis nods to Damet.

Damet bows to Yfa.

Swiftstar says, "i have a feeling hes not done with ye yet."

Damet bows to Armaxis.

Yfa says, "and I will finish the job very very soon."

You say, "So ye say, YFa."

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

Damet says, "greetings Brother Armaxis of the magic sect"

Jestin gazes heavenward.

Ilvane looks over at Yfa and shakes her head.

Armaxis says, "Good evening."

Yfa says, "I have found the tomb he is hiding as wel"

You say, "But ye have not yet been able to do it..."

Yfa grins.

Junis asks, "Perhaps you would allow a humble servent of the Lord's to witness his demise?"

Junis peers quizzically at Yfa.

Yfa says, "I shall release the nine"

Ilvane asks, "Why do you want to destroy him anyway?"

Ilvane glances at Yfa.

Armaxis says, "Oh? A task far overdue, indeed."

You squint at Yfa.

Armaxis nods to Yfa.

Jestin scratches himself on the arm.

Arimantis squints at Yfa.

Kalsey says, "Yfa? You speak in circles."

Jestin asks, "She been saying this for how long now?"

Yfa says, "I shall replace the tomb and free the nine"

Jestin sighs.

Sabitor frowns.

Ianivin asks, "If Thurfel couldn't free them, then what makes you think that you'll be able to do it?"

Yfa says, "and he can do nothing but die"

You ask, "So ye know where the tomb is?"

Shaylazar nods to Thillieir.

Thillieir asks, "what tomb is this?"

Sabitor asks, "Replace?"

Ilvane asks, "You will do what Thurfel couldn't?"

Sabitor blinks.

Swiftstar says, "talbots tomb"

Arimantis says, "They were turned back afore, an should they be released.. they will be turned back again"

Swiftstar nods to Thillieir.

Yfa says, "He believes the tomb a key, I believe so as well"

Thillieir says, "ah yes"

Swiftstar nods to you.

Thillieir says, "that one"

Damet says, "I fear the Church can not comment on such actions taken by a fellow servent...it is not our place"

Yfa says, "I shall remove it from his possesion and replace it and free them all"

Damet nods to Yfa.

Ilvane says, "He tried, for years..trying to reduce those seals."

You ask, "A key to what?"

You cock your head at Yfa.

Armaxis says, "The tomb which lay in the Pioneer Cemetary, until the Mage transported it elsewhere. It still holdsss the Nine, who were imprisoned wrongly."

You squint at Yfa.

Aranrhod says, "So he still has it"

Yfa nods to Armaxis.

Yfa says, "they shall be freed soon"

Swiftstar nods to Aranrhod.

You glance at Armaxis.

Thillieir asks, "and where is this tomb?"

You look at Yfa and shake your head.

Ilvane asks, "Wrongly?"

Ilvane glances at Armaxis.

Armaxis raises an eyebrow in your direction.

Yfa says, "under Thurfel's keep"

Yfa says, "I've found it"

Damet says, "perhaps my assignment here in Icemule was tougher then I first thought"

Damet smiles weakly.

Sabitor furrows his brow.

Ilvane says, "Even they know they did wrong."

Jestin frowns.

You ask, "But ye don't know how to move it, do ye?"

Ryever rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You cock your head at Yfa.

You see Yfa Darkvein the Dark Elf.
She appears to be in her 150's, has very long black hair, dark eyes, and black skin.
She is in good shape.
She is holding a jagged blood-red blade in her right hand and a faceted garnet shield in her left hand.
She is wearing a small viper-clasped pouch, some tall black leather boots, a small rune-etched teardrop, a slender ruby-adorned sheath, some crimson robes, and an ebon serpentine ring.

Thillieir says, "I can't believe the followers of Amasalen don't even know his allies"

Shaylazar gazes fondly at Thillieir.

Yfa says, "I will move it"

Swiftstar says, "you cannot yet or you would have though"

Ilvane asks, "And how do you plan to do that?"

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

You say, "Perhaps ye simply will die trying."

Ilvane grins at Yfa.

Yfa says, "I only need Thurfel's power to dwindle a tiny bit more and he will be unable to thwart me"

You cough.

Swiftstar scratches his chin.

Thillieir says, "it's funny, it shows how much he respects them"

Aranrhod says, "Will, shall, might, maybe"

Yfa asks, "from him?"

Aranrhod gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Armaxis says, "One must be sentenced to an eternity's punishment for attempting to bring the word of His Lordship and His servant to town? Well then, you might as well imprison Damet."

Yfa asks, "or from you?"

Armaxis smirks.

Ianivin whispers, "He's still able to thwart her, then."

Ilvane raises an eyebrow in Armaxis's direction.

Thillieir says, "they will be the first to die if this succeeds"

Sabitor says, "Thurfel's power will not... dwindle."

Sabitor begins to twitch.

Damet says, "I am hear to spread the good word Lord Armaxis"

Armaxis nods to Damet.

Junis chuckles.

Thillieir says, "for Amasalen cares not about his followers"

You ask, "But he is obviously still thwarting ye, aye?"

Damet says, "the lies of Liabo have gone on too long here"

Yfa says, "Thurfel's power is no more"

You peer quizzically at Yfa.

Yfa says, "barely"

Damet says, "unchecked"

Junis and Silon bash their forearms in greeting.

Swiftstar smirks.

You say, "So ye would like to believe."

Swiftstar says, "barely..."

Ilvane glances at Damet.

Swiftstar gazes heavenward.

Jestin shakes his head.

Damet glowers darkly at Ilvane.

Junis nods to Silon.

You say, "But since ye have yet done nothing ye have threatened..."

Junis says, "Quite."

Silon grins.

Ilvane says, "Lies are merely subjective."

Yfa says, "In any case, I brought yet another gift for ye all"

Kalsey asks, "If thurfel's power is no more, how can it dwindle?"

Yfa says, "I'll go drop them off downstairs"

Damet says, "keep your lieing tongue to itself Ilvane"

Yfa grins.

Ilvane waves a hand at Damet, dismissing him indifferently.

Arimantis asks, "What makes ya think you can open anythin with this 'key' ifin Thurfel couldn't do it?"

Yfa just went down.

[Icemule Trace, Town Center]
The bustling town comes together in this square. Halflings dressed in varying fashions stand about, some chattering happily, others reclining on cloaks laid on the ground. One ancient halfling leans against the base of the large ice statue of a mule, snoring blissfully. A feeling of community pervades the area, putting you immediately at ease. You also see the Sheka disk, the Jubol disk, a slender black candle, some woth flower, some dusky sandalwood incense and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it.
Also here: Sandash, Aethimyr, Lord Marex, Xulia, Frugus, Lady Sheka, Stonnewolf, Lady Angelrise, Rhapsity, Romull, Cullinan, Denneroth, Lady Sherysse, Lord Lodayne, Lord Zosopage, the Legendary Lady Keriddwen, Apprentice Tierath who is sitting, Jubol, Jasaline, Lady Naydia, Baldorn who is sitting, Vectros who is lying down, Lord Slivacki, Lady Kerilyn, Lord Redem who is sitting, Marna who is sitting, Flauless who is sitting, Jaggar who is lying down

You hear your own faint thoughts echoing in your head:
"Yfa has brought another gift, be wary."

Sabitor frowns.

You concentrate on the Locate Person spell...
You gesture into the air.
Your vision begins to become murky and clouded. You have a sensation of rapidly passing distance. Eventually your sight begins to clear and a vision of Yfa's surroundings fills your mind...
...[Temple Burrow, Lumnis Street]
...Several people pass you by on their way about their business. A large hill of snow and ice stands to the north, a small path running up it. The most used way seems to be to the east, where you can hear excited shrieking and giggling.
...Also here: Yfa
...Obvious paths: east, west, southwest, up.

You hear the faint thoughts of Seravadon echo in your mind:
"More zombies?"

You hear the faint thoughts of Ianivin echo in your mind:

You gesture into the air.
A silvery fog envelopes you. You feel a sudden lurching motion, and as the fog dissipates you see...

Ryever asks, "When will you learn that is no punishment?"

Ryever sneers at you.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

Yfa asks, "they leave you here to rot?"

Silon whispers, "Want to go to Town Center"

Dabrezandi whispers, "tell me and i fog to voln"

You say, "I am not afraid, Yfa."

There is a twinkle in a rock ptarmigan's eyes.

Silon asks, "She won't rot, not for another... 10 minutes?"

Silon works his fingers under his orange jester hat and scratches his head.

Yfa says, "perhaps my master shall raise you"

Yfa grins.

Ryever says, "That's simply it, Iscikella, you Should be."

Dabrezandi leans on his waraxe.

The rock ptarmigan ruffles its feathers.

Yfa says, "serve one of true power"

Silon starts chortling.

Ianivin places his hand on his Ronan medallion.

Ryever says, "Know your own limitations, you cannot save this town."

Dabrezandi says, "give the word and its done"

Junis softly kisses his Amasalen symbol, murmuring to himself.

Silon leans on Junis.

Yfa smiles at Junis.

Ryever asks, "If Thurfel could not, how can you expect to?"

Dabrezandi whispers, "that was meant for you"

Junis begins chuckling at Silon.

Silon just tried to pull Junis towards him!

Junis asks, "WHy would I harm the lovelies?"

Kalsey just arrived.

Yfa gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Yfa gestures at Junis.
A wall of force surrounds Junis.

Ryever says, "Just give up now, be silent and rot, your time is done."

You recognize Dabrezandi using the Symbol of Recognition.

Silon grins.

The rock ptarmigan glances sideways at you.

You sense Aranrhod looking in on you.

You whisper quietly to Dabrezandi, " Yes, I understood, and thank ye. But want to badger her a bit more.

The rock ptarmigan ruffles its feathers.

Junis bows to Yfa.

Damet says, "Indeed, Yfa, might ask whom you serve, I have many lessons to teach in this town, and those of Liabo might seek to lie of even your presence"

Damet peers quizzically at Yfa.

A snow bird just flew in.

You say, "Hardly."

Damet says, "my job is to make the truth is told"

Yfa smiles at Albrekt.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Nadinna thinking, "I need healers and clerics to Voln for four brave dead souls."

Silon whistles tunelessly to himself.

Damet says, "nothing more"

The rock ptarmigan descends to the ground and lands nearby.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

You ask, "Why would ye think she would not harm me?"

Kadesha chuckles.

Damet exclaims, "look at the way those of Liabo spin the story!"

Mesema says, "I can't beleive you guys"

Silon just arrived.

Sheka glances at you.

Sheka smirks.

Mesema says, "So much for defending your town"

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Damet says, "when the Liabo gods had to come up with a story to make him gated"

Damet says, "er hated"

Mesema shakes his head.

Damet nods to you.

Junis says, "Well, atleast he has guts, unlike the rest of the lot."

Ilvane says, "It is a balance, not a one side or the other."

The snowshoe hare forages about for something to eat.

Damet says, "they said he eats souls"

Ilvane mutters under her breath.

Blizzerdd idly picks at a leather whip.

Damet says, "that is a lie"

The rock ptarmigan cocks its head intelligently.

Junis rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Armaxis nods to Trizzdt.

Mesema squints at Yfa.

Damet says, "he gives everlasting life"

Mesema says, "We dont' want you here"

Junis removes a tiny pink pearl from in his silvery pouch.

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Roelon grins.

Mesema says, "Leave"

Mesema nods to Yfa.

Junis offers Mesema a tiny pink pearl.

Sheka paces back and forth.

Mesema accepts Junis's pink pearl.

Junis waves a hand at Mesema, dismissing him indifferently.

You say, "Oh, I think she knows she is less than welcome."

Skyfawn waves a hand at Yfa, dismissing her indifferently.

Calil furrows her brow.

You glance at Yfa.

Sheka paces back and forth.

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

Ryever says, "Yes, a balance, just as the righteous order of Voln drives back the waves of undead each and every day."

Damet says, "Mesema, come to our service, learn the truth your soul hungers for"

Damet nods to Mesema.

Ryever says, "Lies."

Ichiko says, "Life as a soulless, shambling shell.."

Ilvane asks, "Why can't you just do what the Council wanted, Yfa..instead of taking the town for Amasalen?"

Sabitor raises an eyebrow.

Damet says, "Come Home Mesema"

Mesema sneers.

Ilvane glances at Yfa.

Yfa nods to Perigourd.

Damet says, "come home"

Roelon grins slowly.

Kadesha waves a hand at Damet, dismissing him indifferently.

Mesema asks, "You know where you can go?"

Mesema asks, "With your truth?"

Sheka says, "That was what the Council wanted."

Dabrezandi begins chuckling at Damet.

Ilvane says, "Until they were disillusioned by power.."

Sheka nods to Ilvane.

Roelon begins to twitch.

Damet says, "Mesema, such hate, such misunderstanding"

Damet says, "Come home..."

You nod to Ilvane.

Mesema snarls menacingly!

Damet says, "he will forgive"

Dabrezandi says, "mesema, ye may go to their home, but watch out when the rent comes due"

Ilvane says, "They only wanted equal representation in the temple."

Sabitor narrows his eyes.

Damet says, "let me pray for you Mesema"

You say, "But she is more... greedy even than that."

Damet takes off a bronze Luukos symbol.

You glance at Yfa.

Mesema says, "I go no where"

Ianivin asks, "Does the blood he took from me still remain on his altar?"

Sheka says, "At first."

Damet removes a slender black candle from in his ruby spidersilk backpack.

Ilvane nods to you.

Ianivin glances at Yfa.

Damet carefully places his slender black candle on the ground.

Armaxis says, "The grievousss crimes committed against the Nine so many years ago deserves more than simply an undoing of the wrong. Far more."

Damet lights the slender black candle, which flickers and begins to burn.

Roelon tosses back the edges of his hooded cloak and frees himself for action!

Damet kneels down.

Sheka says, "Until they knew who they wished to serve."

Junis flashes a wide grin.

You glance at Armaxis.

Kadesha glances at Yfa.

Mesema squints at Yfa.

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Ilvane says, "They did wrong, it was nothing unjust for punishment."

Ilvane stares at Armaxis.

Damet recites:
"Master, please bring this lost sheep back into the fold her soul cries for your forgiveness"

You say, "Ye are very quiet, witch..."

Sheka looks over at Silon and shakes her head.

Nadinna asks, "And what of the crimes the nine have committed against the people, then and now?"

Roelon grumbles.

Damet bows to Mesema.

Nadinna peers quizzically at Armaxis.

Yfa nods to Perigourd.

Silon nods to Yfa.

Roelon spins around, sending his hooded cloak flowing in a billowing arc behind him.

You squint at Yfa.

Damet continues to beseech the gods for mercy and guidance.

Roelon stares at Armaxis.

Damet stands up.

Nadinna says, "The nine and their... representatives."

Damet puts on a bronze Luukos symbol.

Junis asks, "Did wrong? Wanting to worship as they chose?"

Nadinna glances at Yfa.

Damet says, "come ome Mesema"

Mesema points at Yfa.

Ilvane says, "They killed the families of fellow towns people.."

Mesema points out.

Damet says, "he wants you"

Damet grins.

Nadinna says, "They killed scores of innocents."

Yfa says, "speak with Iscikella Perigourd, she will tell you all you wish to know"

Ilvane looks over at Junis and shakes her head.

Ichiko glares at Damet.

The rock ptarmigan chirps loudly.

Nadinna says, "And they continue to."

The slender black candle flickers softly, casting a warm light throughout the area.

Perigourd rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Junis says, "So YOUR histories say."

Damet smiles at Ichiko.

Sheka says, "What have any of us done? It is those of Liabo doing the murdering."

Nadinna stares at Yfa.

Sheka glances at Kadesha.

You cock your head at Yfa.

Damet smiles at Junis.

Silon leans on Perigourd.

The snowshoe hare wrinkles its nose.

Aranrhod raises an eyebrow in Yfa's direction.

Trizzdt shifts his weight.

Ilvane says, "To take the entire town for Luukos, you know full well.."

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Sabitor leans on his falchion.

Mesema asks, "Why are all of you so afraid?"

Ilvane says, "Junis.."

Ryever exclaims, "Such blinding zeal, unable to see the fault at the heart of this, merely hanging on to this wreck of a village out of shear spite!"

Perigourd whispers, "why does the council want the town?"

Damet says, "Junis, you seem to be under the influence of Liabo...let me help you"

Junis says, "Written by those who wrongfully imprisoned the council."

There is a twinkle in a snowshoe hare's eyes.

Ilvane sighs.

Damet nods to Junis.

Kalsey leans on Silon.

Keriddwen nods to Dabrezandi.

Keriddwen yawns.

Dabrezandi chuckles.

Kadesha asks, "Sheka care to explain how Iscikella just died?"

You notice a vein pulsing in Sabitor's forehead.

Yfa asks, "and whom do you serve mesema?"

Junis peers quizzically at Damet.

Damet says, "come home Junis..."

Kadesha says, "wasnt Liabo"

The snowshoe hare raises its ears.

Damet says, "Come home"

Junis asks, "Excuse me?"

Blizzerdd says, "Luukos shall not have the town, nor Thurfel, nor Amasalen for that matter"

Sheka asks, "She tripped?"

Sheka shrugs.

Junis shows Damet his Amasalen symbol.

Yfa says, "she died to a viper strike it appeared to me"

Mesema says, "I serve the town, and myself"

Lodayne laughs softly, trying to hide his amusement.

Junis says, "I am home."

Yfa says, "no mystery"

Yfa grins.

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Because she explained that if they take the town, they will control all magic. IceMule is a nexus."

Damet says, "Junis, Luukos will forgive you"

Silon starts chortling.

Gurwulf says, "Now you"

Mesema says, "Others may fear death"

Mesema says, "Or your power"

The snowshoe hare raises its ears.

You say, "It was the viper, Kadesha."

Ichiko says, "I shall have nothing to do with you, Damet"

Silon pokes you in the ribs.

Gurwulf says, "Nor you Yfa"

Damet says, "you must come home though"

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Ilvane grins.

Albrekt nods.

Gurwulf shakes his head.

Kadesha says, "Yes, your friends I believe"

A small draft catches the flame of a slender black candle and it flickers brightly.

(Iscikella points at the rune in the snow.)

Perigourd whispers, "there aren't any other more powerful nexuses?"

Kadesha glowers darkly at Yfa.

Junis peers quizzically at Damet.

Mesema says, "But I have no problem standing up to you"

Arimantis says, "The town belongs to its people, an it is gonna stay that way"

Ilvane says, "He serves the Immortal of Luukos."

Ianivin says, "I'll take back what Amasalen took from me that night."

Junis says, "Good sir, I follow the lord Amasalen."

Ilvane begins chuckling at Damet.

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Apparently not."

Ianivin nods to Yfa.

Blizzerdd asks, "Why if she is one of your own, would ye let yer pets kill her?"

Silon whispers, "Ya outta train yer defesnes, a tiny little snake killed ya"

The snowshoe hare scratches an ear.

Nadinna asks, "And just where did this viper come from, I wonder? Do you think this whole town composed of idiots?"

Damet says, "I see"

Silon leans on you.

Kalsey says, "I believe Yfa does love all the petty arguing her presence brings."

Ianivin says, "Whether he still has it on his altar or not."

Damet says, "then you are home it seems"

Sheka says, "My my my....I think they are hating you worse than they do me."

Damet smiles at Junis.

Yfa says, "there are few who are not Nadinna"

Trizzdt begins to twitch.

Sheka nods to Yfa.

Yfa chuckles.

Sheka smirks.

Silon sticks his tongue out at Nadinna, and lets out with a loud, "Thbtbtbtbt" from his lips!

The rock ptarmigan scans the area.

Junis nods to Damet.

Yfa says, "those who serve us"

Ilvane places her hand on her diamond Ronan symbol.

Sabitor glances at Sheka.

Sabitor smirks.

A snow bird just flew in.

Ilvane just kissed the symbol!

Skyfawn waves a hand at Yfa, dismissing her indifferently.

Blizzerdd gently pets the bird.

Silon nods to you.

Kadesha runs her hand softly over the surface of her Lorminstra symbol. A pale glow surrounds the symbol as its surface shimmers for a moment with the image of a golden key on a field of black.

Ryever asks, "So you do not treasure her pain as you would another? To whom are You faithful weed mage?"

Dabrezandi asks, "miffed? sheka?"

Kadesha glowers darkly at Yfa.

Mesema squints.

Silon rubs you gently.

Mesema swings an imflass axe at Yfa!
AS: +0 vs DS: +84460 with AvD: +29 + d100 roll: +3 = -84428
A clean miss.

Dabrezandi peers quizzically at Sheka.

Damet says, "Ilvane, Iscikella, Kadesha, He will forgive you...."

Perigourd whispers, "so how many of the council are abroad?"

Sheka squints at Dabrezandi.

Mesema says, "Ha I almost hit you"

Rhellium's jaw drops.

Dabrezandi begins chuckling at Mesema.

Damet says, "come home"

A slender black candle flickers a moment and nearly goes out, then its flame springs to life again, burning merrily.

Keriddwen chuckles.

Trizzdt blinks.

Kadesha says, "uh"

Belthasas chuckles.

Ilvane begins chuckling at Mesema.

Yfa put a jagged blood-red blade in her ruby-adorned sheath.

Damet says, "I beg of you"

Blizzerdd gently pets the bird.
The bird ruffles its feathers!

Armaxis says, "Yes. You were that close."

Damet says, "come home"

Yfa removes a small blood-spattered bone from in her viper-clasped pouch.

Armaxis nods to Mesema.

(Blizzerdd ruffles his feathers.)

Yfa waves her blood-spattered bone at Mesema!
The ground begins to split, a gaping pit forming. It remains open momentarily, anything upon it vanishing into the darkness. It seals itself in a heartbeat, no trace of a scar or crack remaining.
Mesema just vanished.

Blizzerdd chuckles.

Arimantis asks, "Hmm... soundin a lil arrogant aren't ya... those who serve 'us'?"

Dabrezandi says, "thats just wrong"

Ryever says, "I'm beginning to see it may not be whom you claim, but this... tree orc before us."

Sabitor groans.

The rock ptarmigan glances sideways at you.

Arimantis glances at Yfa.

The snowshoe hare raises its ears.

Arimantis smirks.

Damet exclaims, "you see!"

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Junis chuckles.

Damet says, "she could have killed her"

Yfa put a small blood-spattered bone in her viper-clasped pouch.

Silversoft pets Sheka's rock ptarmigan.

You hear the voice of Elendr say, "Yer dumb snakes weren't much Yfa. Barely broke a sweat on 'em."

Yfa removes a jagged blood-red blade from in her ruby-adorned sheath.

Damet says, "and she didnt"

Damet says, "Liabo lies..."

The rock ptarmigan ruffles its feathers.

Yfa says, "no sense in killing the foolish"

Yfa says, "let the snow kill them"

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, " Right now, none. Though Thurfel is of the council. But there are possessed by the council. Yfa is not of the council herself."

Damet says, "you can all come Home..."

Sabitor blinks.

Ianivin asks, "Sending him to the same fate you sent for me?"

Damet says, "come home"

Aranrhod gazes up into the heavens.

You blink at Yfa.

Ryever laughs!

Calil says in Elven, "I would suggest not bringing arms against Yfa unless you cared to feel the viper's strike again."

Yfa says, "if he is worthy"

Ilvane glances at Yfa.

Junis grins.

Yfa says, "he shall make it back unscathed"

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Belthasas just touched a slender black candle.

Keriddwen says, "Damet nae know about ye...but i am home so hush please"

Perigourd whispers, "then why is she helping them?"

Swiftstar says, "as if you know."

A slender black candle glows warmly with a soft, flickering light.

The rock ptarmigan glances sideways at you.

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

Silon pets Sheka's rock ptarmigan.

Dabrezandi says, "test me also, yfa"

Belthasas gestures at a slender black candle.
Dust sprays up around the slender black candle, but the candle itself remains unmoving.

Ianivin asks, "And I was unworthy enough to have my blood taken from your master?"

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Because they are of Amasalen and Luukos and so is she."

(Ichiko glances at the ptarmigan)

Mastys snuffs out a slender black candle.

Roelon leans on his waraxe.

Yfa says, "methinks he'll freeze to death however"

Damet says, "Keriddwen, your material home might be here in Icemule, but your soul..."

Mesema just arrived.

Sheka asks, "Or you will sanct again?"

Mesema says, "wench"

Damet says, "it needs to come home"

Mesema swings an imflass axe at Yfa!
AS: +0 vs DS: +84460 with AvD: +29 + d100 roll: +56 = -84375
A clean miss.

Sheka sneers at Keriddwen.

Lodayne pets Sheka's rock ptarmigan.

Damet nods to Keriddwen.

You say, "Likely in the cold."

Roelon glances at Mesema.

Sabitor glances at Mesema.

Ilvane rubs her chin thoughtfully.

You stare at Yfa.

Yfa says, "ah, he made it back"

Dabrezandi begins chuckling at Mesema.

Blizzerdd mutters dark-elves.

Keriddwen laughs!

Armaxis says, "Persistant."

Damet says, "please Keriddwen, He will forgive"

Roelon glances at a dual-bladed black rolaren waraxe.

You say, "Ye are a cruel one, witch."

Dabrezandi draws a glowing pattern in the air before Mesema.
CS: +140 - TD: +10 + CvA: +12 + d100: +2 - +5 == +139
Warding failed!
Mesema's face loses all expression as a calmness sweeps over him.

Sabitor says, "You poor fool."

Roelon glances at Mesema.

Roelon begins to twitch.

Mesema growls ferociously!

Damet says, "he will allow you home"

Stasia just arrived.

Yfa says, "I'm impressed"

Dabrezandi says, "fer yer own good"

Sabitor gazes up into the heavens.

Armaxis says, "Stupid, but persistant."

Kadesha gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Kadesha gestures at Mesema.
Kadesha looks over at Mesema with a surprised look on her face.

Dabrezandi nods to Mesema.

Keriddwen says, "met soul is nae fer belly crawlers like yerself"

Mesema squints.

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

The rock ptarmigan launches itself into the sky, circles once, and then flies off.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

Keriddwen grins at Damet.

Roelon just touched a veil iron bound soul sphere.

Perigourd whispers, "if she's of luukos why does she not kill everyone so as to feed our souls to him?"

Yfa nods to Armaxis.

Damet asks, "Belly crawlers?"

Roelon closes his eyes for a moment.

A cloud of dense silvery fog suddenly appears. The fog quickly dissipates to reveal Jestin.

Swiftstar nods to Damet.

Jestin glares at Yfa.

Silon works his fingers under his orange jester hat and scratches his head.

Swiftstar says, "you heard her"

Junis says, "Come Mesema, join the RIGHT cause."

Damet says, "Keriddwen, I feel for your soul"

Armaxis says, "They are blind in more ways than one."

Kalsey leans on her backsword.

Armaxis nods to Damet.

Skyfawn asks, "Yfa why are you here anyway?"

Kalsey smiles at Yfa.

Jestin says, "Enough presents"

Redem shifts his weight.

Damet says, "the Liabo Lies have gotten you deep"

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Mesema says, "You pick make me sick"

Yfa says, "Mesema, I have spared you one time"

Armaxis says, "They cannot see we stand on two legs."

Damet sighs.

You hear someone yawn.

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Because she wants the town and the council free, and needs Thurfel dead to do that and hasn't been able to kill him yet."

Damet nods to Armaxis.

Yfa says, "I will not spare you a second time"

Mesema says, "Something you think you can not beat so you fold"

The snowshoe hare stands on its hind feet and scans the area.

Blizzerdd mutters tiaza.

Keriddwen says, "nae please don't Damet i wish it to remain unsullied thankee kindly"

Mesema says, "Death I do not fear woman"

Mesema glares at Yfa.

You say, "And she doesn't spare either."

Nadinna gazes up into the heavens.

Blizzerdd glances at Yfa.

Perigourd whispers, "how can she imprison him but not kill him?"

(Sheka glowers at the name of Tiaza.)

Swiftstar says, "as if youre killing him makes a difference."

Damet says, "my burden is to raise a church Armaxis, the elders said it would be tough"

Damet nods to Armaxis.

Ryever says, "Death is the slightest of this town's worries."

Swiftstar shrugs.

Yfa nods to Roelon.

Damet says, "it is my test by fire"

A snow bird flies southwest.

Jestin says, "Bah"

Ryever says, "Not to speak of what she'd do to you should you continue your insolence."

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "That is a long story I can tell ye later, has to do with the essence inside me."

Armaxis says, "It shall be, especially in such a town of...ssstrife."

Sheka asks, "You know of this Tiaza?"

Sheka cocks her head at Yfa.

Perigourd nods to you.

Damet says, "beat down the lies of Liabo"

Yfa asks, "Tiaza?"

You squint at Sheka.

Yfa says, "nay"

Calil grins slowly.

Damet says, "the mistruths"

Ilvane glances at Sheka.

Arimantis says, "Hmm... Yfa.. yer lookin like you need a new dress too"

Perigourd whispers, "does anyone besides her have the power to free thurfel?"

Nadinna says, "You will shortly, I'm sure."

Ianivin tightens his grip on his sharply-honed sabre.

Calil nods to Damet.

Sheka says, "She is a monk from a monastary at the Landing."

Arimantis shifts his weight.

Yfa asks, "a monk?"

Nadinna says, "And from where Tiaza come, others will follow."

Yfa asks, "what have I to fear from a monk?"

Ichiko nods to Nadinna.

Junis chuckles.

Blizzerdd says, "She has power, like ye do Yfa"

Nadinna says, "The word of a monk of Voln coming to Icemule, has spread far and wide."

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Thurfel is more powerful than she and I believe will free himself, though he is finding it difficult going.

Jestin glares at Yfa.

You notice Mesema slip in behind Yfa.

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "Who's Tiaza?"

Damet says, "I will expose Tiaza to the truth"

Ilvane asks, "The power of Voln?"

Roelon starts chortling.

Ilvane grins at Yfa.

Swiftstar nods to Ilvane.

Sheka says, "She claims to have come here at hearing rumors of Luukos being active. She came to fight."

Damet says, "her soul can be saved too"

Jestin says, "Getting tired of talking"

Swiftstar smirks.

Sheka nods to Yfa.

Junis glances at Ilvane.

Jestin mutters under his breath.

Junis laughs!

Ilvane says, "I would fear it if I were you."

Kadesha nods to Yfa.

Arimantis asks, "Same might be said.. what have we to fear from you?"

Sabitor sighs.

Silon leans on Jestin.

Perigourd whispers, "what are thurfels goals? isn't he of luukos as well?"

Swiftstar says, "i would fear it very much"

Mesema comes out of hiding.

Mesema just kissed Yfa on the lips.

Armaxis says, "You may wish to inform who was the true creator of the storm after your recent leaving."

Swiftstar smiles.

Damet says, "Luukos is active! He now has a church here"

Armaxis nods to Yfa.

Calil says in Elven, "She will find a fight."

Damet scoffs.

Mesema just punched Yfa!

Dabrezandi grunts.

Ilvane says, "Of course I'm not, and you are arrogant."

Yfa nods to Kalsey.

Calil nods to Sheka.

Sabitor glances at Mesema.

You hear someone laugh.

Ilvane starts chortling.

Sabitor smirks.

Armaxis's serpent suddenly uncoils from around his neck and crawls down his arm, straightening into a staff in his hand.

Dabrezandi nods to Yfa.

Kalsey grins wickedly.

Redem gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Lodayne says, "sounds like a church of one, so far"

Kadesha glowers darkly at Armaxis.

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "Those have changed over time. I trust him. Some do not. But he does have a love for IceMule."

Gurwulf swings a glaes-hafted shimmering ora warmace at Yfa!
AS: +40 vs DS: +84460 with AvD: +30 + d100 roll: +22 = -84368
A clean miss.

Ianivin mutters something about ignorance.

Ilvane says, "She thinks she's invincible."

Sheka says, "She seems quite powerful in her own right."

Kadesha glances over at Gurwulf and winces.

Sheka nods to Yfa.

Gurwulf asks, "How is such a defense possible?"

Calil smiles at Lodayne.

Junis glances at Gurwulf.

Jestin blinks.

Junis shakes his head.

Redem says, "blasted"

Sheka says, "She did cause it to snow."

Armaxis says, "It would seem they thirssst for blood tonight."

Ilvane says, "There is always someone stronger."

Yfa sighs.

Ilvane nods to Yfa.

Swiftstar says, "she will learn soon enough what the power of Voln can and will do to her."

Sabitor gazes up into the heavens.

Jestin asks, "Bah who says?"

Swiftstar nods to Ilvane.

Damet says, "the power of the gods allow for all"

Armaxis says, "How pleasant."

Sabitor says, "You are all being such fools."

You ask, "Yfa, this power over magic... is this what was meant about bringing Amasalen to full power?"

Damet nods to Gurwulf.

Junis asks, "You dont even understand the meaning of power do you?"

You squint at Yfa.

You notice a vein pulsing in Sabitor's forehead.

Damet says, "come to us Gurwulf"

Roelon grins.

You notice Mesema slip into a hiding place.

Yfa put a jagged blood-red blade in her ruby-adorned sheath.
Yfa removes a small blood-spattered bone from in her viper-clasped pouch.

The snowshoe hare wrinkles its nose.

Damet says, "I will show you his Power"

Arimantis smirks.

Kadesha waves to Gurwulf.

Roelon glances at Yfa.

You glance at Yfa.

Redem grunts. How charming.

Ichiko smirks.

Silon rubs Sabitor gently.

Sabitor scowls.

Yfa says, "very well"

Roelon says, "Ye hae nae power of yir own."

Perigourd whispers, "i've never met him myself, i'd like to someday if he ever frees himself and while he may have an agenda of his own, i think he's probably the only one with the power to end the council"

Damet grins.

Damet winks at Dabrezandi.

Jestin glares.

Yfa says, "perhaps a bit farther off then"

Roelon says, "Weak and feable without his protection."

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Jestin says, "Getting real tired of this"

Yfa points her blood-spattered bone at Mesema!
The ground begins to split, a gaping pit forming. It remains open momentarily, anything upon it vanishing into the darkness. It seals itself in a heartbeat, no trace of a scar or crack remaining.
Mesame just vanished.

Junis says, "Send him to the top of the world."

Gurwulf asks, "Wheres Tiaza?"

Sheka says, "I would like you to meet this wench from the monastary."

Sheka smiles chillingly.

Skyfawn glances at Yfa.

Trizzdt scratches his chin.

Ilvane rubs her chin thoughtfully.

You say, "Ye do like splitting the earth..."

Silon nods to Sabitor.

You glance at Yfa.

Silversoft shrugs.

Damet says, "you see again, the truth about Lornon, no death, just peace"

Dabrezandi asks, "where do ye send gurwulf?"

Perigourd rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Damet smiles.

Ianivin gazes up into the heavens.

Armaxis says, "I know a wonderful spot in Darkstone bay. Very warm. It's called Teras Island. I think the opening of one of the volcanoes there would be a suitable place."

Yfa says, "if they wish to die, I shall consider their wish next time"

Lodayne says, "such language, Sheka"

Armaxis looks thoughtful for a moment, then shrugs.

Damet says, "Liabo lies"

Yfa says, "to solhaven"

Kalsey says, "For shame, for shame, Mesema."

Dabrezandi chuckles.

Sheka asks, "What?"

Perigourd removes a tall glass of pink love potion from in his green greatcloak.

Damet says, "well I fear I must leave"

Perigourd glances at a tall glass of pink love potion.

Ichiko asks, "Still seeking for the staff, Yfa?"

Perigourd glances at Yfa.

Perigourd works his fingers under his raccoon-tail hat and scratches his head.

Yfa says, "aye, and weakening with every heartbeat"

Lodayne says, "callin a monk a wench ... true disrespect"

Lodayne sighs.

Yfa nods to Ichiko.

Sheka narrows her eyes.

Kalsey examines her fingernails.

Armaxis says, "Good evening, may His coils warm your soul in their eternal embrace."

Yfa says, "the staff is the answer to all"

Armaxis nods to Damet.

You say, "The tomb is under the keep, ye said. Now how odd ye should reveal that..."

Perigourd shows Yfa his pink love potion.

Swiftstar waves a hand at Sheka, dismissing her indifferently.

Ichiko nods.

You rub your chin thoughtfully.

Sheka says, "The wench made my skin crawl."

Jestin says, "Methinks you will be the one to die in the end Yfa"

Damet says, "Yfa, you are invited to the serivce of the Church of Luukos, this restday, nine o'clock elven"

You glance at Yfa.

Sheka glowers.

Ilvane nods to Lodayne.

Redem raises an eyebrow.

Damet exclaims, "all are invited!"

Keriddwen asks, "why is it those who swear they are powerful seem mostly to be cowards and bullies?"

Sabitor furrows his brow.

Yfa says, "I should only hope Armaxis finds it before one of you"

Damet says, "Come home"

Blizzerdd asks, "Why have ye not finished him yet?"

Ilvane says, "It's her arrogance, she has no respect for anyone."

Damet says, "all should come home"

Kadesha says, "Yfa I will not be foolish enough to strike you, I wil enjoy when Liabo does"

Ichiko says, "And I doubt ye'll find it"

You glance at Blizzerdd.

Damet bows to Armaxis.

Trizzdt scratches his chin.

Lodayne says, "regardless, respect be earned by such a person"

Sabitor grins wickedly.

Damet bows to Sheka.

Damet bows to Calil.

Kalsey examines her fingernails.

Kadesha smiles confidently

Sheka nods to Damet.

You mutter something inaudible.

Calil bows to Damet.

Yfa says, "I would slay him for good. If I but wait a few more days, he shall be naught but ashes."

Sheka says, "Walk in Darkness."

Dabrezandi says, "because, keriddwen, there is no humility"

Perigourd put a tall glass of pink love potion in his green greatcloak.

Damet says, "good evening Brothers and Sisters"

Sheka smiles at Damet.

Perigourd works his fingers under his raccoon-tail hat and scratches his head.

Blizzerdd smiles at Yfa.

Sabitor asks, "A few... days?"

Sabitor frowns.

Ianivin says, "Alot can happen in a few days.."

The snowshoe hare wrinkles its nose.

Swiftstar says, "ashes...riiight.."

Ilvane raises an eyebrow in Yfa's direction.

Ianivin nods to Yfa.

Yfa says, "count his days"

Roelon says, "Perhaps ah shall find this staff...and break ..it.."

You look at Yfa and shake your head.

Roelon nods.

Yfa says, "they are numbered"

Silon rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Blizzerdd asks, "And where did ye think the staff was? Ye find it?"

Keriddwen says, "that's is a basic truism"

Aranrhod says, "You tell the same tale everytime you show up"

Aranrhod nods to Yfa.

Junis grins.

Kadesha says, "count yours as well"

Silversoft shakes her head.

You say, "I don't believe ye, Yfa."

Kadesha nods to Yfa.

Sheka raises an eyebrow in Aranrhod's direction.

Ilvane says, "Perhaps he will take you with him."

Sheka says, "Hush Servant girl"

Dabrezandi says, "everyone should visit the demonics once in their lives"

Dabrezandi winks at Keriddwen.

Kalsey shakes her head, clucking her tongue.

Redem grunts. How charming.

Keriddwen begins chuckling at Dabrezandi.

Yfa says, "he may have, when he was in full power"

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "A staff?"

Aranrhod says, "You hush fool"

Keriddwen says, "visit them...they visit us"

Silon whistles tunelessly to himself.

Yfa says, "but he is but a shell of himself now"

Aranrhod glances at Sheka.

Keriddwen pokes Dabrezandi in the ribs.

Sheka smirks.

Nadinna asks, "And who is to blame for that?"

Nadinna peers quizzically at Yfa.

Swiftstar says, "i still think he would make you grovel."

Yfa says, "I am"

Yfa grins.

Swiftstar shrugs.

Aranrhod says, "So you keep saying...just a shell"

Ilvane asks, "We can dream, can't we?"

Sheka cackles!

Blizzerdd says, "Well I have been watching Amasalen's shrine like ye have asked...there are many devices of torture there...I like it much"

You say, "I know he will make her grovel..."

You glance at Yfa.

Yfa says, "I hope to bury him by week's end"

Blizzerdd grins at you.

Roelon chuckles.

Jestin says, "Bah nothing can be done here"

Yfa says, "I shall save his ears for you."

Sabitor mutters under his breath.

Perigourd works his fingers under his raccoon-tail hat and scratches his head.

Kalsey asks, "Will there be a memorial?"

You blink at Blizzerdd.

Dabrezandi says, "i was rejected by the living and the demon, thus i end up here, in purgatory"

Dabrezandi winks at Keriddwen.

Jestin gestures into the air.

A silvery fog coalesces around Jestin, obscuring his form. When the fog dissipates, Jestin is gone.

Ichiko raises an eyebrow.

You glance at Yfa.

Kadesha frowns at Blizzerdd.

Swiftstar says, "i have a feeling you yourself will be buried by weeks end instead of he."

Keriddwen begins chuckling at Dabrezandi.

Swiftstar shrugs.

Swiftstar leans on his falchion.

You hear someone chuckling.

You clench your fist.

Junis asks, "Can I have one of his furry feet?"

Perigourd removes a jade-tipped glass rod from in his green greatcloak.
Perigourd removes a rolton pelt from in his green greatcloak.
Perigourd gently rubs the pelt along the length of his glass rod and his arm twitches slightly.

Sheka smiles as she runs a finger along the back of Blizzerdd's neck.

Yfa smiles at Junis.

Keriddwen says, "aye unending verbal torture"

Calil says in Elven, "Perhaps then, they wil hear the truth"

Silon pokes Junis in the ribs.

Junis says, "Just kidding, it would probably smell."

Perigourd lightly rubs the pelt along his glass rod. You notice the hairs on his arm standing on end.

You mutter something about Amasalen-witches...

Blizzerdd squints at Sheka.

Perigourd briskly rubs the pelt along the length of his glass rod. Miniature sparks leap along the rod where the pelt touches it and a faint crackling can be heard.

Sheka smiles at Blizzerdd.

Perigourd quickly rubs the pelt along the length of his glass rod. Sizeable sparks jump from the rod where the pelt touches it and a loud crackling can be heard.

You glance at Sheka.

Yfa says, "If you should see this monk, tell her to steer clear of me"

Redem chuckles.

Sheka glances at you.

The snowshoe hare wrinkles its nose.

Sheka smirks.

Armaxis leans on his staff.

Arimantis smirks.

Nadinna asks, "And why would she?"

Nadinna peers quizzically at Yfa.

Sheka nods to Yfa.

Swiftstar says, "perhaps you should steer clear of her."

You say, "Somehow I doubt she will, witch."

Silversoft nods.

You cough.

Kadesha says, "does she fear you Yfa? she should"

Skyfawn says, "I shall tell her to seek you out"

Roelon grins.

Kadesha smiles.

Yfa says, "it would save her worthless life"

The snowshoe hare stands on its hind feet and scans the area.

Skyfawn nods to Yfa.

Perigourd waves his glass rod near Yfa. Suddenly, a large blue spark jumps from the rod to Yfa causing her body to twitch and her hair to stand on end! Yfa's eyes glaze over slightly and she appears momentarily stunned.

Sheka says, "I think she will be looking for you though."

Keriddwen smiles at Skyfawn.

Swiftstar says, "lest she bring the wrath of Voln down upon your pitiful head"

Armaxis says, "She seeks to meddle in the faithfuls affairs. She shall learn the cost of such heathenousss actions."

Keriddwen says, "aye"

Keriddwen nods to Skyfawn.

Sheka stares at Perigourd.

Arimantis says, "Oh.. I think he has her own plans fer you"

Sabitor glances at Perigourd.

Nadinna says, "She, above all, has nothing to fear in you. A lowly witch of serpents."

Silversoft clasps her hand over her mouth.

Roelon glances at Perigourd.

Yfa chuckles.

Roelon starts chortling.

Sabitor shakes his head.

The snowshoe hare stands on its hind feet and scans the area.

Silon grins.

Mystianna laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

Perigourd coughs.

You hear the voice of Elendr say, "Harsh."

Kadesha removes a veniom-hilted falchion from in her wand harness.

Silversoft giggles.

Sheka says, "You are doomed."

Swiftstar says, "and a whiner to boot"

Sheka sneers at Perigourd.

Perigourd begins chuckling at Sheka.

Junis asks, "Did you think Static would hurt her?"

Junis says, "I mean really."

Perigourd says, "nope"

You say, "Yer master will not break this town, Yfa."

Perigourd says, "it doesn't hurt anyone"

You look at Yfa and shake your head.

Perigourd says, "aside from pride"

Calil says in Elven, "They all are, Sheka"

Perigourd nods to Junis.

Nadinna nods.

Yfa says, "I shall return, very soon. And when I do, I will bring you the corpse of your towns last hope."

Calil grins slowly.

Sheka nods to Calil.

Kadesha says, "I have waited for Voln to intervene, I suspect such news woud distress you, Yfa"

Blizzerdd says, "She is much older than ye. I think she could be dangerous, still her help may be enlisted in helping to kill Thurfel."

Blizzerdd rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Nadinna says, "And without her master, she is nothing. Remember that."

Sheka says, "Indeed"

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "I got a question... could anyone help me with it?"

Sabitor glances at Yfa.

Yfa put a jagged blood-red blade in her ruby-adorned sheath.

Junis bows to Yfa.

Swiftstar says, "so you say always"

Yfa removes a small blood-spattered bone from in her viper-clasped pouch.

Swiftstar waves a hand at Yfa, dismissing her indifferently.

Perigourd grins at Silversoft.

Yfa waves her blood-spattered bone at Yfa!
The ground begins to split, a gaping pit forming. It remains open momentarily, anything upon it vanishing into the darkness. It seals itself in a heartbeat, no trace of a scar or crack remaining.
Yfa just vanished.

Nadinna says, "She is a pawn, a tool. And he will tire of her like he has tired of so many."

You say, "Hmmm..."

Aranrhod blinks.

You hear the voice of Belthasas say, "poof"

Aranrhod says, "Gone"

Ichiko nods to Nadinna.

You hear someone sigh.

Keriddwen shrugs.

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "Anyone help me with a question?"

You sigh.

Kalsey smiles quietly to herself and gazes at her nails.

You say, "Can try, Elendr."

Silversoft says, "oh my"

Sheka says, "I am interested to see a meeting between her and this Tiaza."

Roelon raises an eyebrow.

Blizzerdd nods to Sheka.

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "I'm tryng to figure out what the hell a demi-god, or an immortal, or whatever, cares about a town sittin' on a block of ice?"

Calil nods to Sheka.

Kadesha says, "oh, so am I Sheka"

You hear the voice of Sabitor say, "I am interested in seeing her dead."

You hear someone chuckling.

Nadinna says, "She underestimates this town if she thinks Tiaza is our only hope."

Mastys asks, "who is the corpse she is talking about?"

Kadesha grunts, amused.

You say, "She said, Elendr."

Sheka waves a hand at Kadesha, dismissing her indifferently.

Kalsey exclaims, "She has such a refreshing affect on this quiet, little town. Don't you think?!"

Swiftstar says, "her time grows nearer though"

Keriddwen asks, "she refers to Thurfel right?"

Nadinna says, "More come behind Tiaza, as we speak. She does not act alone, I know."

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "She said what?"

You say, "If Amasalen controls IceMule, he will control all magic."

Sheka says, "You will rue those words, Witch."

Swiftstar nods to Nadinna.

Sheka cackles!

Kadesha says, "she underestimates it thinking Thurfel is its hope"

You say, "IceMule is a nexus."

Swiftstar says, "many more"

Junis glances at Nadinna.

Junis snorts.

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "A nexus?"

Keriddwen nods to Kadesha.

You say, "The control of magic is what he seeks."

You nod.

Roelon says, "Such power will fall in the Blood lords hands, Or Thurfels."

You say, "a power center."

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "The short folk know about that nexus when they built ice?"

Ryever says, "Doubtful."

Blizzerdd whispers, "Yfa said ye already belong to her love"

You say, "Very possibly."

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "I don't!"

You gawk at Blizzerdd.

Aranrhod says, "It should fall in no one's hand"

Dabrezandi says, "thats prolly why the council built the town here, they felt something"

Radoria nods.

Redem says, "aye"

Perigourd rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Blizzerdd says, "Is what she said"

Dabrezandi says, "even though they didnt know it"

You hear the voice of Elendr ask, "Council built the town?"

Swiftstar says, "many more besides Tiaza come...and it spells the end for Yfa and her lackeys."

Blizzerdd nods to you.

Sheka smiles at Junis.

Arimantis says, "The council din build the town"

Arimantis smirks.

Lodayne says, "I always thought was just acause the land's flat here."

Perigourd whispers, "this is turning out to be a fight between luukos and voln"

Xulia asks, "why yew all standin ere?"

Xulia cocks her head.

Dabrezandi says, "for pie"

Redem grins.

Kalsey grins.

Mystianna says, "waiting for you Xulia"

Nadinna says, "Yfa just left, Xulia."

Mystianna grins.

Xulia beams happily at Dabrezandi!

Junis smiles at Xulia.

Sheka says, "Late again."

You hear the voice of Elendr say, "we're tryin to annoy ya Xulia."

Dabrezandi says, "pie merchant"

Perigourd whispers, "think a battle of societys is coming by chance?"

Sheka begins chuckling at Xulia.

Mesema glares.

Xulia's jaw drops.

Mesema says, "Where is that wench"

Skyfawn says, "she left"

You say, "Council helped found the town, aye."

Mesema says, "Fraid of me"

Perigourd nods to Xulia.

Mesema scoffs.

Sheka says, "The new town."

Sheka nods to you.

You say, "They were of the original group of halflings who came here."

Mesema says, "Can't belive you guys are so pathetic"

Swiftstar whispers, "what do they seek here that is so magical? have you any clue at all? is it just the area? or an object?"

Elendr nods to you.

Sabitor snickers.

Armaxis says, "The more who come to fight shall merely provide more souls for the Lord of Death. Let them rally behind a naive girl who has not seen beyond the walls of a monastery."

You hear the voice of Sabitor say, "Excuse me."

Nadinna says, "Yes, but so were the Dabbings."

Swiftstar scratches his chin.

Kadesha begins chuckling at Armaxis.

Xulia works her fingers under her monkey head mask and scratches her head.

Calil nods to Armaxis.

Sheka nods to Armaxis.

Mesema says, "What happened to fighting for your beliefs"

Junis raises his fist defiantly.

Keriddwen says, "well seems this town is divided into tiny fractions"

Trizzdt glances at Mesema.

Junis says, "Let them come."

Keriddwen sighs.

Xulia gazes fondly at Armaxis.

Kadesha says, "yes let them rally behind Voln"

Perigourd says, "fortune favors the bold"

Mesema says, "I'm not tiny"

Skyfawn says, "I rally behind no one, I fight like all for our town"

You whisper quietly to Swiftstar, "Seems the area, but might be something under the tomb. She took called the tomb a key. Like Thurfel did."

Swiftstar nods to you.

Aranrhod says, "If it gives you comfort to think that"

Nadinna says, "If it comforts you to think of this one monk as naive, or sheltered, or even unpowerful, continue to."

Aranrhod nods to Armaxis.
