Dark Forces...
Volnes, day 3 of the month Imaerasta in the year 5101

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
This log is actually the combination of four logs -- one by Sheka's player, one by Blizzerdd's player, and two by Iscikella's player. It should be noted, therefore, that in this log the "you" references refer to any of these three parties, as noted in the initital reference.

It should also be noted here that, in the first log from Iscikella's viewpoint, the words and actions of the essence are recognizable are they use "Iscikella" instead of you and the special actions do not use paratheses. The same can be said of the actions of the essence in Opalina when shown as manifesting in two of the logs, and the words of the essence through her are obvious by content.
***END NOTE***

This log is from the viewpoint of Sheka and the "you" references, therefore, are in connection to said character.

[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 some basal moss, some woth flower, some aloeas stem, a corroded brass coffer, the Vasold disk, some ambrominas leaf, a short sword and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it.
Also here: Arcil, Riktal, Lord Sothog, Lord Zosopage, Lady Morgaine, the body of Beneficent who is lying down, Lord Yebon who is sitting, Journeyman Nephrite who is sitting, Kemalo who is lying down, Reain who is lying down, Cosair, Mutausf who is sitting, Chayy, Lady Opalina, Lord Hugemen, Amby, Khirdahn, Mazerak, Auragin who is sitting, the Legendary Thaisis, Lord Demonicos, Journeyman Cimarion who is sitting, Bange, Autom who is sitting, Dramor who is lying down, Journeyman Vasold who is sitting, Journeyman Onglethorp.

Opalina says, "Let those who do not fear the council, remember this night."

Opalina kneels, and traces a rune upon the snow.

The snow begins to bleed.

Crimson snow sprays upward, the ground beneath dark and full of decay.

Opalina begins to chant louder, her arms urging the ground to continue its dance.

[Top of the World, Aenatumgana]
Small steps hacked out of the side of the mountain lead down, providing meager protection from the howling gales on the slopes. High above, cornices hang dangerously low, shuddering with each renewed gust of wind. Packed ice and snow make assaults on the peak slow at best, fatal at worst. Blocks of ice the size of buildings lie in heaps at the bottom of the western slope, a testament to the power of the titanic avalanches that ravage the mountain. You also see a seeker.
Obvious paths: west.

A seeker points a skeletal finger at you!
A seeker hurls a powerful lightning bolt at you!
AS: +369 vs DS: +435 with AvD: +45 + d100 roll: +85 = +64
A clean miss.

You concentrate on the Camouflage spell...
You gesture.
You blend into invisibility among the surroundings.

You leap from hiding to attack!
You swing a ruby-hilted black rolaren longsword at a seeker!
AS: +379 vs DS: +293 with AvD: +41 + d100 roll: +23 = +150
... and hit for 71 points of damage!
Gruesome, slashing blow to the side of the seeker's head!
Skull split open! Brain (and life) vanishes in a fine mist.
The seeker screams, "Nooooo!" as she clatters to the ground into a lump of ancient bones and rotting robes.
The brilliant luminescence fades from around a seeker.
The silvery luminescence fades from around a seeker.
The bright luminescence fades from around a seeker.

The last vestiges of the seeker are caught by a dank, cold wind and blown into oblivion.

Winds whip around you.

You squint.

You say, "Uh oh"

A strong gust of wind blows by you!

You ask, "Who is there?"

You lean on your longsword.

A fierce wind buffets you, blowing you all about.

search
You don't find anything of interest here.

You concentrate on the Dispel Invisibility spell...
You gesture.
You don't find anyone invisible.

You rub your chin thoughtfully.

The shrieking winds become suddenly violent. The temperature drops drastically, numbing your extremities in a heartbeat. You cannot see through the flying snow and ice, and it looks as though you may be in trouble!

You feel yourself being pulled away...

[Icemule Trace, South Road]
Several groups of adventurers jostle past you on their way through the South Gate. The sounds of laughter from the west remind you of the inns and taverns back home. You notice that the lowest part of the walls are darker stone than the top, a sign that this fortification had been raised at some point in the past. You also see an old beer barrel.
Also here: Faerieflint, Kayler
Obvious paths: north, east, west.

You exclaim, "Bah!"

You belt out, "Thats it!"

A sudden fierce gust of wind howls through the area!
You are buffeted by the wind and knocked to the ground!

You glare.

You stand back up.

You belt out, "Face me fool!"

You exclaim, "Where is the staff?!"

You squint.

search
You don't find anything of interest here.

You scan your surroundings, considering the various flora and fauna found here (and noting those which are absent). The indications of the cold, dry climate and the hard, flat terrain are clearly evident to your seasoned eye. You also see the South Gate.

You see nothing of interest in that direction.

You belt out, "Show me!"

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
This log picks up immediately after the two previous logs...
***END NOTE***

[Hall of the Mind]
An aura of tranquility sits over the room. Stars twinkle on the south wall, comforting as they sparkle in the blackness, while the north wall glows a pearlescent grey the color of the moon behind mist. A black altar sits before the starry sky, and a grey altar seems to fade out of the misty wall.
Also here: Achillea
Obvious exits: southwest, up.

Kamalot just arrived.

You nod to Kamalot in greeting.

Kamalot nods to you in greeting.

You say, "Evening, Kamalot."

Kamalot says, "Evening M'lady"

You smile at Kamalot.

Kamalot says, "Have you heard, Opalina's entity just acted"

You say, "No, I didn't hear."

You stand back up.

Kamalot says, "She summoned a Wraith in TC"

Achillea blinks.

You say, "Hmmm... Sothog is telling me on the net to come."

Kamalot nods.

Achillea just went southwest.

Kamalot says, "Be careful"

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

[Icemule Trace, North Road]
The air takes on a definite chill here. To the north, you can see the gleam of sunshine reflecting off ice, and it seems the road is headed straight into the glacier. To the north and east, the Temple rises above the city on a hill of ice, watching over the city and shining like a polished crystal.
Also here: Riktal, Lord Hugemen, Blizzerdd, Lord Sothog, Lady Morgaine, Lady Opalina
Obvious paths: north, south.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at Opalina.

Achillea just arrived.

Blizzerdd asks, "When?"

You try to pull Blizzerdd towards you.

Riktal suddenly stumbles for no apparent reason.

Sothog asks, "Mind explaining what all that was about?"

You ask, "Ye allright, love?"

Blizzerdd says, "I was just pulled to the south gate from pinefar"

You ask, "Ye what?"

Sothog stares at Opalina.

You blink at Blizzerdd.

Kamalot just arrived.

Morgaine says, "Opalina etched a rune into the snow"

Blizzerdd says, "Ye heard me"

Sothog nods to Morgaine.

Opalina says, "Nooo"

Morgaine says, "And moments later a black ice wraith appeared."

Opalina exclaims, "I don't want to be of use to you!"

Achillea glances at Opalina.

Blizzerdd says, "I was hunting and a wind came up and I found myself at the south gate"

Hugemen rubs Opalina gently.

Hugemen just hugged Opalina.

You ask, "What is going on?"

You try to pull Blizzerdd towards you.

You ask, "Did ye hear anything?"

Sothog says, "We're being manipulated again."

(Riktal glances about, watching the area.)

Opalina whimpers.

Blizzerdd says, "No, nothing"

Sothog looks over at you and shakes his head.

Blizzerdd moves to stand in front of Opalina.

Opalina turns to face Hugemen.

Opalina says, "They are evil"

Hugemen just hugged Opalina.

You ask, "Who?"

You peer quizzically at Opalina.

Opalina says, "the ones in control of us"

Sothog smirks.

Sothog says, "No kidding."

You say, "Well, no doubt of that."

Blizzerdd says, "We must seek the staff."

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd glowers.

You look at Blizzerdd and shake your head.

Opalina says, "Blizzerdd the staff"

Opalina asks, "you think it will help us or them?"

Riktal searches around for a moment.

Riktal says, "I will find that staff.."

Sothog says, "I looked around in the old city for the staff as well. Found nothing."

You say, "Supposedly it can destroy them."

Kamalot says, "If you ask me, the staff is best left in hiding"

Blizzerdd says, "I dunno, but if we are strong enough we may be able to control it"

You say, "But wielding it possessed is dangerous."

Hugemen nods to Kamalot.

Riktal says, "And make them all pay for what happened to my parents. The nine, Amasalen.."

You say, "Because then they will have access to it."

Achillea begins chuckling at Riktal.

Riktal rubs his eyes.

(Riktal rubs at his eyes, the black rings ever present about their borders.)

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Sothog mutters under his breath.

Sothog rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Blizzerdd scans his surroundings with the alertness of a seasoned scout.

Sothog searches around for a moment.
Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Achillea asks, "you think you can wield it Riktal?"

Achillea chuckles.

Riktal says, "There is no proof I couldn't."

You try to pull Blizzerdd towards you.

Riktal glances at Achillea.

Riktal says, "Only rumors."

Sothog says, "Nor is there proof you can..."

Sothog chuckles.

You say, "It definitely wants ye here for something though, love."

A toy serpent crawls out of Iscikella's satchel and slithers into the snow.

Riktal says, "One way to find out."

You blink.

Kamalot blinks.

Sothog mutters under his breath.

Morgaine blinks.

Hugemen frowns.

Morgaine searches around for a moment.

Achillea blinks.

Hugemen says, "erm"

You say, "uh..."

Kamalot tightens his grip on his black rolaren backsword.

Morgaine asks, "A toy serpent?"

Sothog squints.

Achillea just kissed the symbol!

Kamalot gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Morgaine searches around for a moment.

Kamalot asks, "whered did it run off to?"

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Ah geeze don't let it bite ya!"

Sothog searches around for a moment.

Riktal takes a few steps back.

You say, "What in the name of..."

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Sothog says, "Bah..."

Riktal mutters something about a-serpent...

Hugemen snarls menacingly!

Morgaine searches around for a moment.

Achillea places her hand on her Luukos symbol.

Kamalot just went south.

Morgaine raises an eyebrow.

Kamalot just arrived.

Morgaine leans on her staff.

Opalina glances at you.

Morgaine says, "That was odd."

Sothog says, "Tis' crawling under the snow here somewhere..."

Sothog rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Riktal says, "Where did it go.."

Opalina moves to stand in front of Hugemen.

Kamalot asks, "Have you always had that toy, m'lady?"

Sothog shrugs.

Achillea asks, "what you doin with toy serpents Iscikella?"

Hugemen just tried to pull Opalina towards him!

(Riktal looks about, glancing from side to side.)

Hugemen just hugged Opalina.

Opalina gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Riktal searches around for a moment.

Achillea chuckles.

You say, "I have the one Chortel made for me."

You say, "That is a long story."

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Achillea asks, "do you still have it?"

Achillea just went south.

Opalina says, "well it just slithered out of your cloak and left"

In the white leather satchel you see some delicate ivory prayer beads, a white flask, a small rod, a flaky rainbow tart, a delicate onyx black lace chemise, a glass of deep red burgundy wine, a heavy rod and a flacon of lavender perfume.

Hugemen says, "obviously not..."

Achillea just arrived.

You exclaim, "Uh, no!"

Hugemen says, "what a silly question"

You exclaim, "It's gone!"

Blizzerdd asks, "What?"

Morgaine asks, "But where?"

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at you.

Hugemen says, "you just saw it crawl out and go away"

(Riktal looks very nervous.)

Opalina says, "ya we saw it leave"

Riktal just arrived.

You nod to Opalina.

Opalina nods to you.

Riktal gulps.

Riktal's eyes widen as he trembles in quiet panic.

You ask, "But where did it go?"

(Elendr glances about with the others.)

Opalina shrugs.

Achillea just went north.

You hear very soft footsteps.

Achillea just arrived.

Opalina says, "didn't see that"

Morgaine says, "It could be anywhere by now."

You hear very soft footsteps.

You ask, "I mean, what if is stalking someone?"

Hugemen says, "away. no catchin it. if it wants to be found it will be."

Blizzerdd says, "Not north of here"

You wring your hands.

Opalina nods to Hugemen.

You say, "To possess them."

Morgaine searches around for a moment.

Hugemen leans on his falchion.

Sothog nods to you.

Kamalot says, "I hope that isn't the case.."

Elendr just went south.

Sothog says, "Tis' quite possible."

You hear the faint thoughts of Opalina echo in your mind:
"be on the look out for a toy serpant"

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

"If ye see a twisted red toy serpent crawling about, be wary. It just up and crawled out of my satchel..."

You hear the faint thoughts of Opalina echo in your mind:
"trust me just run away"

Achillea just arrived.

Morgaine blinks.

Opalina searches around for a moment.

Elendr asks, "What were ye doin with a toy serpent out of curiousity?"

Opalina says, "there is nothing here"

You hear the faint thoughts of Sheka echo in your mind:
"Crawled out of your what?"

Riktal slowly empties his lungs.

Riktal says, "It seems safe here."

You hear your own faint thoughts echoing in your head:
"Satchel. I had it in my satchel, and it up and crawled out and into the snow..."

Achillea says, "I didn't know you liked serpents, Iscikella"

Elendr chuckles.

Blizzerdd says, "I went into the tomb and saw nothing"

You say, "I don't."

Achillea just edged a little closer to the serpent!

You say, "Long story."

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"Really? we had a wraith in TC"

Elendr smirks.

Sothog blinks.

You say, "I asked Chortel to make me something, whatever he wanted."

You say, "and he made me the serpent."

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"Cept it came from ee ground"

You say, "Said that someone had forced him to do it."

You hear the faint thoughts of Demonicos echo in your mind:
"Truly odd. I think I will find another part in town to wander to untill this passes."

Blizzerdd mutters under his breath.

You hear the faint thoughts of Sheka echo in your mind:
"How very delightful!"

You hear the faint thoughts of Linora echo in your mind:
"Um. Iscikella, where were you when this happened, just so I can avoid that area?"

You hear the faint thoughts of Kamalot echo in your mind:
"2 north of tc"

You say, "And he wasn't going to challenge the person."

You ask, "What?"

Elendr glances at Opalina.

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Sothog raises an eyebrow in Opalina's direction.

Opalina just hugged Hugemen.

You cock your head at Opalina.

Morgaine says, "The temple would be a safe locale."

Opalina says, "sorry was a slip of the tongue"

Sandash searches around for a moment.

Sothog says, "Perhaps."

You nod to Opalina.

Hugemen says, "not necessarily."

Riktal says, "I know that serpent isn't here so I'm staying here."

You say, "Thought ye saw something."

Riktal nods.

You place a hand over your heart.

Lady Sheka just arrived.

Sheka cackles!

Sandash just went south.

A gyrfalcon appears overhead, circling.

Sheka dances around the room to music only she can hear.

Sheka cackles!

Hugemen glances at Sheka.

Kamalot bites Sheka!

Achillea squints at Sheka.

Sheka grins coldly, her eyes reflecting no emotion.

Blizzerdd tightens his grip on his vultite waraxe and glances over at Sheka.

Morgaine asks, "Who wants to be the one to bind and gag her?"

Elendr leans on Sheka.

Elendr grins.

Sothog squints at Sheka.

Sheka exclaims, "A fine night of Lornon to be sure!"

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Sandash smiles at you.

Hugemen leans on his falchion.

You curtsy to Sandash.

(Riktal hacks at the snow with his scimitar.)

Blizzerdd says, "I wanna look out the north gate"

Kamalot gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

You ask, "The north gate?"

You cock your head at Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd says, "Make a quick run then head down from there"

Sothog says, "I may as well go too."

You hear someone chuckling.

Lady Sheka just arrived.

Blizzerdd's group just went north.

***What followed here was a search of the ruins of the old city out the North Gate. Then we proceeded out the South Gate to the Cemetary***

[Cemetary Chamber]
The chamber is cold, dark, and deathly quiet. The thick earthen walls of this vault-like room muffle any sounds that might be coming from above or below. What looks to have been a stairwell or door is now boarded up with thick planks of wood and heavily reinforced with sturdy bars of iron. Intricate runes have been etched in an arc above the barrier.
Also in the room: Riktal, Lord Sothog, Kamalot, Achillea, Lady Morgaine, Sandash, Blizzerdd, the Esteemed Lady Skyfawn who is lying down
Obvious exits: up.

You ask, "Then why ye crying?"

You rub Skyfawn.

Skyfawn asks, "what you be looking for?"

Morgaine yells, "Riktal get back here."

Skyfawn sits up.

You say, "Things have... happened."

You say, "Opalina summoned a wraith."

Skyfawn nods.

You say, "And Blizz was pulled in from Pinefar by something."

Blizzerdd gestures into the air.
The magic fizzles ineffectually.

Skyfawn says, "I heard"

Sothog mutters antimagic.

You say, "and the toy serpent in my satchel up and crawled away."

Sothog says, "And is therefore skulking about in town somewhere."

Skyfawn stands up.

Skyfawn sighs.

(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)

Skyfawn exclaims, "Stop!"

Riktal just arrived.

(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)
(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)

You rub Skyfawn.

Riktal says, "It's safe up there."

Achillea glances at Skyfawn.

Sothog blinks.

Kamalot rubs Skyfawn gently.

Morgaine says, "Stop running off."

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"And if Opalina starts Dancing again do as I say and bind her"

Morgaine glances at Riktal.

Skyfawn weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

You say, "They won't stop."

You shake your head.

You hear the faint thoughts of Opalina echo in your mind:
"It wasn't me"

Blizzerdd scans his surroundings with a puzzled look on his face.

You give a sigh of desperation.

You hear the faint thoughts of Nofret echo in your mind:
"I trust the toy serpent has been found."

Sothog searches around for a moment.
Sandash searches around for a moment.

You hear the faint thoughts of Opalina echo in your mind:
"and I ran Khirdahn"

You hear your own faint thoughts echoing in your head:
"Nae, hasn't. It is crawling about somewhere."

Skyfawn says, "I offered myself if they would leave everyone else alone"

Skyfawn weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Kamalot frowns.

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"No worrys though Opalina we won't hold it against ya"

You say, "It wants vengeance, Skyfawn."

Lady Sheka just arrived.

You hear the faint thoughts of Silvanostar echo in your mind:
"what toy serpent?"

You hear the faint thoughts of Hugemen echo in your mind:
"i think it would be wise for you to drop it Khirdahn. "

Riktal says, "There's a wonderful plan. Why would they want ye, if they're just using peoples as tools to get the collective."

You say, "The Nine hate this town."

Sheka smirks.

You sigh.

Skyfawn says, "what they are doing is wrong"

You hear the faint thoughts of Hugemen echo in your mind:
"it was no choice of hers."

You say, "Of course it is."

Riktal says, "They don't just want vessels, they want the town. Offering yourself is just aiding them."

You say, "Vengeance is wrong."

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"Course not"

You say, "But won't stop them from doing it."

Skyfawn says, "the people that are here was not here when they was put in there"

Sothog says, "That won't stop them, most likely."

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Blizzerdd says, "Ah sheka"

Blizzerdd removes a fel hafted vultite waraxe from in his leather binding harness.

(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)
(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)
(Skyfawn pounds on the boards)

Skyfawn exclaims, "Stop!"

Blizzerdd tightens his grip on his vultite waraxe.

You hear the faint thoughts of Opalina echo in your mind:
"Khirdahn go ahead and bind me... if you feel that will help please do."

Sheka stares at Blizzerdd.

Sheka asks, "aye?"

Skyfawn screams!

You hear the faint thoughts of Khirdahn echo in your mind:
"I can't bind"

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "Should we check the island too?"

Blizzerdd asks, "Are ye ready?"

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at Sheka.

Sothog smiles.

Sheka says, "I would rather in the Hall of Mind"

Sothog rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You rub Skyfawn.

Sheka smirks.

You sigh.

Blizzerdd gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Blizzerdd gestures at Sheka.
The magic fizzles ineffectually.

You peer quizzically at Blizzerdd.

Skyfawn says, "yes kill her for being herself"

Achillea chuckles.

Blizzerdd glances at a fel hafted vultite waraxe.

Sheka closes her eyes for a moment.

Skyfawn says, "kill her for talking"

You try to pull Blizzerdd towards you.

You exclaim, "Love!"

You say, "We have more important things to worry about."

Blizzerdd waves a hand at you, dismissing you indifferently.

Skyfawn says, "all anyone does anymore is KILL"

You wave a hand at Sheka, dismissing her indifferently.

Sheka smiles sardonically.

You say, "She's nothing."

the Esteemed Lady Skyfawn just went up.

Sothog says, "In some cases, that's not neccesarily a bad thing...."

Blizzerdd sighs.

Blizzerdd's group just went up.

***What followed was then a search of Thurfel's Island, and then on to the keep***

[Thurfel's Keep]
A pulsating green and yellow mist fills this room, making it nearly impossible to see anything further than your own hand. There doesn't appear to be any reason for the fog or the slowly dancing lights within it, but it does bear a rather pleasant light citrus smell.
Also in the room: Lord Sothog, Kamalot, Achillea, Lady Morgaine, Sandash, Riktal, Blizzerdd
Obvious exits: south.

Sandash says, "that toy quaked hafta the youguns in TC"

Sothog mutters under his breath.

Sothog shudders.

You ask, "What?"

Sothog asks, "Which quake is this?"

You blink at Sandash.

A deranged sentry lumbers in.

Blizzerdd asks, "When?"

Sothog stares at a deranged sentry.

Sothog says, "Go away."

Morgaine glances at a deranged sentry.

Sandash says, "before I meet up with you guys"

Riktal squints at a deranged sentry.

You ask, "The toy?"

Sandash says, "there was a quake in TC"

You blink at Sandash.

You rub your chin thoughtfully.

Kamalot asks, "Perhaps the shrine?"

Sandash says, "wasnt a very big quake didnt affect me none"

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "Maybe we should be inside town?"

Blizzerdd nods to you.

Riktal says, "N-not the shrine again."

Blizzerdd says, "Back to town"

[Hall of the Mind]
An aura of tranquility sits over the room. Stars twinkle on the south wall, comforting as they sparkle in the blackness, while the north wall glows a pearlescent grey the color of the moon behind mist. A black altar sits before the starry sky, and a grey altar seems to fade out of the misty wall.
Also in the room: Lord Sothog, Kamalot, Achillea, Lady Morgaine, the Legendary Lord Sandash, Riktal, Blizzerdd
Obvious exits: southwest, up.

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Sheka stares at Blizzerdd.

Sheka cackles!

You exclaim, "No!"

You glower darkly at Sheka.

Sheka cackles!

Sothog searches around for a moment.

Sheka just kissed Blizzerdd.

You say, "go play in the mud, Sheka."

Sandash searches around for a moment.

Sheka says, "Here"

You say, "Like a good little guttersnipe."

Achillea leans on Blizzerdd.

Sheka leans against a grey altar.

Blizzerdd put a fel hafted vultite waraxe in his leather binding harness.

Morgaine says, "The Spreader of Filth arrives, as per usual."

Sheka smiles at Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Blizzerdd gestures.
An invisible force guides Blizzerdd.

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "No killing in here!"

Blizzerdd swings a closed fist at Sheka!
AS: +175 vs DS: +196 with AvD: +20 + d100 roll: +15 = +14
A clean miss.
The guiding force leaves Blizzerdd.

A toy serpent slithers into the chamber and into Iscikella's satchel.

Sheka scoffs at Blizzerdd.

Riktal furrows his brow.

Morgaine blinks.

Sandash grins.

Sothog blinks.

Sheka cackles!

Your jaw drops.

Achillea blinks at you.

Riktal exclaims, "No!"

In the white leather satchel you see a twisted black toy serpent, some delicate ivory prayer beads, a white flask, a small rod, a flaky rainbow tart, a delicate onyx black lace chemise, a glass of deep red burgundy wine, a heavy rod and a flacon of lavender perfume.

Morgaine leans on her staff.

Sothog says, "Interesting."

Sheka says, "Get it"

You exclaim, "It changed!"

Morgaine moves to stand in front of Riktal.

Sheka nods to you.

Morgaine peers quizzically at you.

Sheka smirks.

Sothog asks, "How so?"

Achillea peers quizzically at you.

You remove a twisted black toy serpent from in your white leather satchel.

Skyfawn says, "your toy has returned"

Morgaine blinks.

You exclaim, "Is black!"

Kamalot blinks.

Sothog says, "Different color."

You say, "Was red."

Skyfawn cackles!

You lightly tap the head of your black toy serpent and a slender forked tongue flicks out of its mouth several times in rapid succession.

Sheka says, "Black"

Sheka cackles!

Your jaw drops.

Riktal shivers.

Achillea blinks at you.

You glance at a twisted black toy serpent.

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
What Iscikella didn't do at the time was examine the toy closely. She did the next afternoon and here is what she saw:

The scales of the serpent are black, although crimson flecks can be seen scattered about its sinuous body. There is something malevolent about the toy, the fangs and eyes of the serpent all too real. There is crude stitching on the underside of the snake, the repair evidently done in haste.
***END NOTE***

Kamalot cowers.

Blizzerdd squints.

You hear the faint thoughts of Elendr touch your mind:
"ever end up finding the snake?"

Morgaine says, "I would not feel safe holding that."

Sothog says, "The nine trying to spook folks again."

Achillea asks, "dern, wanna sell it?"

Sothog mutters under his breath.

Achillea leans on you.

(Iscikella runs a hand through her hair.)

Sheka says, "Kiss it."

Skyfawn says, "let me hold it"

Sheka nods to you.

Sothog squints at Achillea.

You squint at Sheka.

Skyfawn giggles.

You glance at a twisted black toy serpent.

Sothog says, "Unwise..."

Achillea says, "I jealous, nice toy"

Sheka says, "Kiss it."

Sandash says, "maybe your toy will end up sumthing like Blade's old serpent.."

Achillea snaps her fingers.

You say, "I wonder what it did..."

You glance at a twisted black toy serpent.

(Iscikella shudders intensely.)

You put a twisted black toy serpent in your white leather satchel.

Achillea just went up.

Sothog says, "Or if it did anything...."

Blizzerdd nods to Sheka.

Sothog says, "Other than shed its skin, so to speak."

Sheka glowers.

Kadesha just arrived.

Sothog says, "Hmm... I wonder..."

Sothog rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You ask, "What is going on?"

You flail your arms about.

Blizzerdd searches around for a moment.

Sheka cackles!

Riktal searches around for a moment.

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Aha!"

Riktal furrows his brow.

Skyfawn gazes heavenward.

Morgaine searches around for a moment.

Sothog says, "I see no one about..."

Morgaine says, "Vonka is calling for help."

Kadesha searches around for a moment.

Kamalot scratches his head.

Blizzerdd mutters paranoid.

Morgaine gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Morgaine gestures into the air.
Morgaine momentarily gets a faroff look in her eyes, and then returns to normal.

Sheka stares at Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd snickers.

Skyfawn leans against a grey altar.

Morgaine says, "No"

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 Vonka's surroundings fills your mind...
...[Hall of the Dark]
...Almost no light from the surface reaches this room. What does, comes from the walls in a sickly grey glow, sending chills down your spine that have nothing to do with the cold in the air. Two altars, gold to the south and grey to the west, relieve the black in the room, and detailed murals grace the walls behind them. You also see a black skull-shaped candle and a black skull-shaped candle.
...Also in the room: a stunned Vonka who is lying down, Grhim
...Obvious exits: up.
