A Slice in the Mist
Volnes, day 30 of the month Olaesta in the year 5101

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
In this log the words/actions of the "entity" are recognizable as they read "Iscikella" rather than "you" and the acts are not in parantheses. During the time the "entity" was in control of Iscikella, I -- the player -- had no input into those words/actions.
***END NOTE***

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...

[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.
Obvious exits: south.

Sheka says, "Seems that might have been her intent."

You say in Elven, "Xulia, Alyx, I want to apologize."

Alyxandrah says, "She won't marry you."

Arimantis works his fingers under his red party hat and scratches his head.

Xulia glances at you.

You say in Elven, "Can I talk to ye a moment."

Xulia looks over at you and shakes her head.

Damianee says, "I will kill thurfel"

Alyxandrah says, "I talked to her. She's in love with Thurfel. She's just jealous..."

Alyxandrah says, "You won't kill Thurfel."

Xulia nods to Damianee.

Alyxandrah waves a hand at Damianee, dismissing him indifferently.

Damianee says, "I WILL"

Alyxandrah scoffs.

Sheka exclaims, "That is her name!"

Xulia says, "She is in love, an yer nae powerful enough"

Damianee says, "YFA"

Sheka cackles!

Sheka gazes heavenward.

Xulia raises an eyebrow in Sheka's direction.

Damianee says, "I will bring friends."

Xulia groans.

Xulia hauls off and slaps Damianee up'side his head!

Damianee says, "family"

Sheka says, "Short."

Xulia says, "tankees so much"

Damianee exclaims, "he will die!"

Sheka winks at Xulia.

Xulia says, "idiot"

Sheka cackles!

Xulia hisses at Sheka.

Alyxandrah says, "You are a fool."

Alyxandrah nods to Damianee.

Xulia says, "Yer more den a fool"

Alyxandrah says, "You won't kill Thurfel."

Damianee blinks.

You say in Elven, "It will only be a moment."

Damianee says, "Do nae touch me again."

Alyxandrah says, "You'll have to go for me before you can kill him."

Xulia says, "Iscikella, hush"

You see Damianee Sandicus the Halfling.
He appears to be in his 60's, has short, straight light brown hair, brown eyes, and tanned skin.
He has a fractured and bleeding right hand, a strange case of muscle twitching, and some minor cuts and bruises on his left leg.
He is holding a pitch black buckler in his left hand.
He is wearing a crystal amulet, a cobweb-covered jet black spidersilk cloak edged with silver silk trim, some pitch black halfling leathers emblazoned with a searing lightning bolt, some pitch black eyes, a veniom threaded harness, a tightly woven spidersilk sack, some fitted midnight black spidersilk leggings embroidered with silver and gold thread, a pitch black hood, a pitch black mask, and an elegant black silk gem pouch.

Damianee blinks at Alyxandrah.

Arimantis asks, "What makes ya think she won turn round an kill you?"

Damianee asks, "Is that a challange?"

Xulia says, "Dis feller is in love wif da Lady in Red"

Damianee peers quizzically at Alyxandrah.

You ask in Elven, "Oh?"

Alyxandrah says, "It's a promise."

Xulia asks, "could yew sanct an heal meh, please?"

Xulia gazes heavenward.

Damianee says, "thurfel will die."

Arimantis asks, "He know bout the warriors she been kissin in bars?"

Arimantis smirks.

Damianee says, "by my hand."

Sheka says, "Sanct"

Alyxandrah says, "You want to kill Thurfel, you'll have to kill me first."

Sheka pokes Arimantis in the ribs.

Xulia nods to Alyxandrah.

Damianee blinks at Alyxandrah.

Damianee says, "don't tempt me"

Xulia asks, "Iscikella, kin ya pleese heal meh an sanct?"

You concentrate on the Minor Sanctuary spell...
You gesture.
A sense of peace and calm settles over the area.

You take a quick appraisal of Xulia and find that she has minor bruises on her neck, and minor lacerations about the head and a possible mild concussion.
She has an old battle scar across her back, and an old battle scar across her abdominal area.
She is bleeding slightly from the head.

Alyxandrah asks, "Is that what you're going to say to Thurfel?"

Alyxandrah asks, "Don't tempt you?"

Alyxandrah laughs!

Damianee says, "no"

You ask, "What happened to yer head?"

You meditate over Xulia.
Xulia's head damage is transferred to you.

Damianee says, "i will kill him"

Xulia asks, "So haf yew eber been ere afore?"

Xulia stares at Damianee.

You meditate over Xulia.
Xulia's neck damage is transferred to you.

You concentrate on the Head Repair spell...
You concentrate.
Your head feels better.

Xulia peers quizzically at Damianee.

You concentrate on the Head Repair spell...
You concentrate.
Your head feels better.

Alyxandrah says, "She wants Thurfel, not you."

Damianee says, "Yfa waved her magical bone at me and it teleported me here."

Alyxandrah rolls her eyes.

Sheka says, "She ent you here to be killed."

Alyxandrah says, "No wonder she chose you."

Sheka squints at a pulsating mist.

Xulia grins.

Xulia leans on Alyxandrah.

Sheka says, "No way in or out so far."

Alyxandrah asks, "Didn't we speak of men?"

Sheka nods to Damianee.

Alyxandrah asks, "Of their stupidity?"

Alyxandrah smiles at Xulia.

Damianee blinks at Alyxandrah.

Xulia nods to Alyxandrah.

Xulia says, "always"

Damianee says, "Love is a powerful bond."

Arimantis glances at Alyxandrah.

Xulia says, "like dogs dems are"

Alyxandrah says, "She's USING you."

Damianee snickers.

You ask, "Why do ye want her to love ye?"

Alyxandrah says, "She will not learn."

Alyxandrah laughs!

Xulia says, "she'll parboil yew"

Alyxandrah says, "Typical male."

Lord Tierus's group just arrived.

Tierus sighs.

Alyxandrah says, "She teleported you here..."

Sheka nods to Alyxandrah.

Sheka smirks.

Xulia says, "Thurfel has ignored her fer eons.."

Alyxandrah asks, "You think you can teach HER to love you?"

Alyxandrah cackles!

Xulia says, "She willnae 'learn' ta love yew"

Xulia rolls her eyes.

Damianee says, "when thurfel dies at my feet"

Damianee says, "she will love me"

Alyxandrah laughs!

Arimantis smirks.

Xulia says, "She cannae git it inta her head dat Thurfel DUN love her"

Alyxandrah says, "She will not love you."

Sheka asks, "Have you ever met Thurfel?"

Alyxandrah says, "She will thank you and KILL you."

Arimantis says, "She is usin you"

(Sheka looks in amusement at Damainee.)

Damianee raises an eyebrow in Tierus's direction.

Arimantis asks, "What makes you think you can even find him?"

Xulia exclaims, "git him!"

Tierus says, "You sound as if you are either very stupid... or... very stupid."

Arimantis smirks.

Xulia exclaims, "fetch!"

Xulia nods to Damianee.

Xulia barks wildly at Damianee!

Damianee hauls off and slaps Tierus up'side his head!

Tierus says, "Challenging Thurfel is unwise."

Damianee says, "I don't care."

Xulia gazes heavenward.

Alyxandrah says, "It's amusing nonetheless."

Tierus says, "Especially for one so small of intellect that he need use his hands to fight his battles."

Xulia says, "stubborn lil feller"

Damianee yells, "I CHALLENGE YOU THURFEL"

Xulia glances at Damianee.

Damianee begins to twitch involuntarily.

You notice a vein pulsing in Damianee's forehead.

Sheka says, "I think you want to do this with Kai."

Damianee says, "He will die."

Sheka nods to Damianee.

Tierus asks, "Or are you a mage, to be so powerful as to challenge ThurfeL?"

Xulia falls over.

Tierus peers quizzically at Damianee.

You say, "I apologize to both of ye."

Arimantis begins chuckling at Damianee.

You say, "Said that to start."

Xulia just tried to pull Alyxandrah towards her!

Xulia sits up.

Xulia groans.

Xulia leans on Alyxandrah.

Xulia says, "I dunn lie"

[Thurfel's Keep]
The amount of workmanship put into the eroded seaglass floor of this entry is mindboggling. Painstakingly laid with meticulous care, the faded pastel glass forms the mosaic of an overflowing cream-filled tart. The room itself is quite barren, although smoke and mist can be seen through an archway leading north. You also see a deranged sentry, a sand beetle, a sand beetle, a salt-stained chain hauberk, a pair of unlaced boots, a pair of unlaced boots, an iron wand and a string of hanging seashells.

[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. You also see an arctic fox who is sitting, the Sindani disk, the Sheka disk, a piece of brown jade and some ambrominas leaf.

Sheka says, "Maybe a little more than a tease"

Xydel begins chuckling at Malakiim.

Sheka shrugs.

Sheka gently rolls the lifeless body of Damianee over.

Tierus says, "Damianee, foul an' foolish creature..."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "You can do it, you are strong enough!"

The mist pulsates violently, turning red, then crystal.

Xulia exclaims, "Yfa!"

Malakiim exclaims, "whoa! Thurfel 1, Damiance 0!"

Tierus exclaims, "Let yer soul go tae Thurfel!"

(Daelnor rubs his finger in the mess of Damianee's head)

Aranrhod points at a pulsating mist.

You hear the ghostly voice of Damianee say, "No."

Ryever says, "Take all of them, if it would shut them up, and lend some hollow sense of self-importance to their lives."

Tierus looks considerably more imposing.

Ryever rolls his eyes.

You hear the ghostly voice of Damianee say, "I will conquer him"

Sindani says, "have some strength"

The mist caresses Iscikella, but is repulsed.

Xulia says, "Use meh"

Tierus asks, "Doubt ye tha' Thurfel coul' take yer whole soul, Damianee?"

Xulia says, "dunn raise him"

Bedlamson gestures at Damianee.
A silvery translucent thread extends from Bedlamson encompassing Damianee's corpse.

Something says, "Aye. You will kill him. And when you do, I will be yours."

Bedlamson gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Bedlamson gestures at Damianee.
Bedlamson suddenly looks very drained.
A bolt of soft white light streaks down from the sky bathing Damianee in it.
A brilliant glow forms around Damianee, lingers for a moment, and finally fades. Damianee awakens looking somewhat confused and seriously drained.

Alyxandrah blinks.

The fox squeals with delight.

Xydel grins at Sindani.

Daelnor asks, "what?"

Ryever says, "Yfa was kind enough to pay some friends of mine a visit in the Landing, seems like a person I could grow to respect."

Tierus exclaims, "'twill feed ye!"

Damianee says, "and i will conquer"

You whisper quietly to Aranrhod, "Why did she kiss me before? Yfa?"

Xulia asks, "Yew met her too?"

You squint at a pulsating mist.

Xulia says, "Alyx"

Sheka paces back and forth.

Xulia just tried to pull Alyxandrah towards her!

Junis says, "Damianee, dont believe a word she says."

Junsen cackles!

Xulia peers quizzically at Alyxandrah.

You shiver.

You shiver.

Junis says, "She is a follower of a follower of the lord of lies."

Xulia asks, "wha, Alyx?"

Alyxandrah just touched a tiny coral starfish pendant.

Daelnor says, "lord of lies.."

Ryever says, "Junis, such disrespect, I'd think better of you."

Daelnor asks, "the serpent?"

Sheka narrows her eyes.

Xulia exclaims, "Alyx! wha?!"

The arctic fox pants.

You squint at a pulsating mist.

Junis says, "Come now, you know how I feel about Luukos."

Tierus asks, "Does tha entity sleep 'gain, Iscikella?"

Damianee says, "THURFEL."

Sheka asks, "You would?"

Ryever smiles at Junis.

Ryever narrows his eyes.

Sheka smirks.

(Damianee faces the mist)

You say, "It is there... but tired."

Aranrhod says, "Is fact Ryever"

Tloran says, "I hope something happens soon....the manure here is building"

A small black bat flitters past, its presence clearly out of place in the darkened hallways.

Ryever says, "And you know how I feel about it, Junis."

Damianee hauls off and slaps Junis up'side his head!

Daelnor says, "flies.."

Theradose asks, "what seems to be the problem Thurfel??"

You ask, "Thurfel?"

Damianee hauls off and slaps Junis up'side his head!

Xulia recites:
"Thurfel, I da soul sister of Alyx, who are yer friend. Use meh strenth."

Daelnor says, "more blood"

Junis says, "You're lucky someone has cast the spell of sanctuary"

Ryever says, "Come on Junis, you know you don't have it in you."

You squint at a pulsating mist.

Damianee says, "Kill me as im wounded."

Daelnor says, "they taunt..always taunting"

Damianee says, "Your a strong person"

Damianee nods to Junis.

Junis says, "Fool, I said, I cannot break the spell."

Sheka says, "Use all of us. As the one in the Misguided One uses her."

Aranrhod says, "I do not wish to be used..."

Xydel says, "My soul is yours to take as well"

Xydel nods.

Xulia paces back and forth, muttering something about mist.

Tierus squints at a pulsating mist.

Theradose says, "the mist is closed"

Damianee yells, "SHOW YOURSELF I COMMAND YOU"

Ryever asks, "Offering yourselves up to Thurfel, has it really been so long since he was the menace?"

Sheka sneers at Aranrhod.

Aranrhod says, "So do not speak for me Sheka"

Ryever chuckles.

Tierus says, "Nae'un commands Thurfel, fool."

Daelnor says, "ye will not be used, ah will nae allow it"
