An Owl and an Entity
Niiman, day 12 of the month Olaesta
and
Day of the Huntress, day 13 of the month Olaesta in the year 5101

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
In this log the words/actions of the "entity" are recognizable as they use methods of speech not available normally, such as "blurts out", 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.
Also I left in the log from the 13th exactly as it appeared to me on-screen the one faux-pas the GM apparently made when attempting to echo the room an action from my character. Others saw nothing because of the typo in the technicality of performing the echo. Though obviously a typo, I and others roleplayed into it and that roleplay would make no sense without the leaving in of the actual mistake in the log.
***END NOTE***

Niiman, day 12 of the month Olaesta in the year 5101...

[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 a Silvermule courier, a blood-soaked owl, a snowshoe hare (sitting), the Kamalot disk, some basal moss, a falchion and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it.
Obvious paths: north, south, east, west.

You find the creature to be a magnificent specimen. There is a soft aura about it and you notice the eyes stare back with a nature which hints at intelligence. You are pretty certain this is a Wizard's familiar.

You ask, "blood-soaked?"

You blink.

Sothog nods to you.

Several feathers fall off the owl, the ice melting beneath them as they touch the snow.

Daina says, "It bears an ill sounding message"

You hear the voice of Drizztar say, "scary owl"

Shonison asks, "could it be a familiar of Thurfel?"

Daina says, "I couldn't detect whose it was"

Sothog says, "This owl is clearly a minion of our visitor from earlier."

You say, "He usually uses flame-tailed creatures, Shonison."

The blood-soaked owl blinks quietly a few times.

You say, "So I don't think so."

Shonison nods.

Sothog says, "Likely, that owl has been dead for some time."

Scolex says, "we could cast at it"

The blood-soaked owl hoots, "You have little to fear from Thurfel, but you will fear us soon enough."

Shonison asks, "what did it say?"

Shonison says, "I see"

Daina asks, "Who is us, Owl?"

Alowyn says, "I don't think it's dead"

Sothog says, "That remains to be seen."

You gasp.

Tymmil asks, "Who's us?"

Tymmil looks rather confused.

Sindani asks, "If we truly had to fear you, Owl.. why send just you, a lil cute owl?"

You ask, "Fear from who, owl?"

Canys says, "i bet it's hard to fly when your blood soaked like that"

The owl begins to shudder, its eyes beginning to fog over.

Canys nods to the blood-soaked owl.

The blood-soaked owl cocks its head sideways at you.

Tymmil says, "Someone bring in a wolf to show the owl who's who."

With a great leap, the blood-soaked owl launches into the air.

Sindani says, "Good idea"

The blood-soaked owl swoops off.

Shirkon says, "Dat owl needs tendin"

Blood drips along the snow, each drop singeing the ice.

(Iscikella points at the blood.)

Day of the Huntress, day 13 of the month Olaesta in the year 5101...

[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.
Obvious exits: southwest, up.

Vazridth says, "I was not aware of this.."

Daelnor says, "ah"

Aranrhod whispers, "You can tell me later if you like..."

You say, "Insects came from the ground in the Centre."

Tebon asks, "Ahh, jus time ta find a new rock, eh?"

Tebon smirks.

Daelnor shudders.

You whisper quietly to Aranrhod, "No, is allright."

Aranrhod asks, "Insects?"

Aranrhod asks, "What kind?"

You nod to Aranrhod.

Aranrhod blinks at you.

You say, "I don't know. Wasn't there."

Kadesha says, "I hate bugs"

You say, "Many were though."

Kadesha frowns.

Daelnor nods to Kadesha.

Aranrhod asks, "Anyone here that was?"

You say, "And then a grey mist rose from the ground."

Daelnor says, "ah squish bugs"

Daelnor just opened a misty grey pouch.
Daelnor removes a sea-green glaes scarab from in his grey pouch.

Daelnor shows Kadesha his glaes scarab.

Daelnor nods.

Daelnor put a sea-green glaes scarab in his grey pouch.

Daelnor says, "'specially those horrid spider-cloaks"

Daelnor's face turns slightly pale.

Kadesha says, "cant believe so many people wanna wear a cloak crawlin with spiders"

Kadesha shudders.

You say, "And snow rose up into a humanoid shape."

Daelnor gawks at you.

Aranrhod says, "Maybe they scratch their backs"

Vazridth raises an eyebrow.

Aranrhod shifts her weight.

Kadesha says, "if me cloak has a spider me throw it off an jump on it a whole buncha while screamin like a madwomen"

Daelnor nods to Kadesha.

Daelnor grins.

Aranrhod says, "I do not want them on me either"

You say, "And it attacked Skyfawn."

You sigh.

Daelnor blinks at you.

Aranrhod raises an eyebrow in your direction.

Daelnor asks, "why her?"

Aranrhod asks, "At random?"

Kadesha says, "last bugs I saw were on Vazridth's back as he left the table with Blyn"

You say, "I don't know why her, Daelnor."

You say, "Wasn't there."

Vazridth mutters something about gnomes.

Kadesha grins.

Daelnor mutters bemm.

Junis asks, "The snow, or the mist?"

Daelnor mutters soiled_cloak.

Daelnor glances at a misty grey elven hunting cloak.

You say, "Please... just listen."

Junis blushes a glowing shade of red.

Daelnor turns to face you.
Daelnor turns an inquisitive ear towards you.

Daelnor nods to Aranrhod.

You say, "A bit later a blood-soaked owl appeared in the Centre."

Daelnor blinks.

Daelnor leans forward.

Aranrhod raises an eyebrow in your direction.

You hear the faint thoughts of Junis echo in your mind:
"Ryever we're in tha hall of the mind if you wish to join us"

You say, "And it said "our power grows daily"..."

Kadesha blinks.

Aranrhod asks, "Is the owl a symbol of Fash'lo'nae?"

Aranrhod says, "I forget"

You say, "Please... just listen."

Aranrhod says, "Sorry"

You say, "It's the symbol for Lumnis."

Kadesha says, "I just had another odd idea"

You say, "and it was blood-soaked."

Aranrhod sighs.

Daelnor leans forward and rests his chin in his hand, a thoughtful expression on his face.

Vazridth rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You say, "And it said that we had little to fear from Thurfel, but we would soon learn to fear them."

Daelnor blinks.

Junis smirks.

You say, "And then it swooped off and covered the Centre in blood."

Daelnor shudders.

You say, "that is what happened."

You say, "I saw the owl."

You say, "But not the figure or the insects, which were earlier."

Junis says, "Everyone, I believe Ryever is on his way here, jus sos ya know"

Daelnor exclaims, "gods!"

Daelnor exclaims, "this place gonna be a warzone!"

You say, "So that's what happened."

Aranrhod says, "Lumnis did not send that owl..."

You say, "No, She didn't."

Aranrhod nods.

Kadesha says, "I had a very good talk with Ryever a couple nights ago"

Daelnor asks, "perhaps the slithery one?"

Vazridth says, "Interesting..."

Tebon says, "We believe it ta be a familiar of one of tha council"

You say, "I meant was because was blood-soaked."

You say, "Like a warning."

Aranrhod nods to you.

You nod to Tebon.

Aranrhod says, "Now I understand"

You say, "It was."

Daelnor shudders.

Kadesha says, "I just got another odd idea"

Odevalis says, "I pondered over that earlier.. the blood-soaked eagle... and thought, isnt that a symbol of Lumnis, then also had a quick thought of Leya.. but, it just puzzles me. There's no way that was of Lumnis... not possible... but it's still a bit eerie to me..."

Kadesha says, "scarey when I set ta thinkin"

You say, "owl, not eagle."

Kadesha says, "but"

You tickle Odevalis.

Junis chuckles.

Odevalis says, "er"

Odevalis chuckles.

Kadesha asks, "anyne wanna hear my idea?"

Kadesha says, "ok"

Kadesha says, "my idea"

Vazridth nods to Ryever in greeting.

You say, "It was like a warning."

Kadesha says, "by Kadesha Yrmehiah"

Aranrhod sighs softly.

Tebon glances at Ryever.

Junis chuckles.

Kadesha asks, "whos in that tomb?"

Ryever says, "Evening all, happy to say I've met most of you before."

Kadesha says, "whoats the Dabbings fella name"

Daelnor says, "dun think ah met ye"

Ryever smiles at Daelnor.

Daelnor nods to Ryever.

Daelnor says, "daelnor"

Daelnor points at himself.

Kadesha says, "yad think poor Talbot woulda complained baout that"

You say, "All ten were, but Thurfel got out, as we learned from the entity."

Daelnor asks, "but, thurfel is nae dead, wha was he doin in a tomb?"

Kadesha asks, "ya think maybe the spirit of Talbot might know them council names?"

You say, "They were all entombed. Thurfel got out very quickly, Daelnor."

You say, "Entity explained that."

Daelnor asks, "they were entombed..alive?"

You say, "Said they could free just one."

You nod to Daelnor.

Daelnor's face turns slightly pale.

You say, "All ten were entombed alive."

Daelnor says, "how horrid"

Daelnor says, "no wonder they be angered"

Kadesha asks, "ya think maybe the spirit of Talbot might know them council names?"

Daelnor glances at Kadesha.

Odevalis says, "thats a very good questions Kade... wether Talbot would know their names and perhaps more..."

Daelnor says, "ah believe he would"

You say, "I don't know."

Ryever says, "It might be seen as such until you realize their imprisoners had no way of killing them."

Daelnor nods to Kadesha.

Junis says, "I'd tink so"

You say, "could perhaps."

You nod to Kadesha.

Tebon shifts his weight.

Junis says, "Ahh, but they could"

Daelnor says, "well, whether ah was jes me, or tha terror o tha north"

Kadesha says, "now I dunno how sactly one would go about it but yad think Talbot be more willin ta help then Thurfel"

Aranrhod whispers, "Maybe our idea of summoning was not so bad"

Junis says, "A mob can overwhelm even the mos powerful mages, thas why they could be captured"

Daelnor says, "ah'd be a mite upset if'n someone buried me alive"

Tebon nods.

Daelnor nods to Ryever.

You say, "We tried contacting Talbot at one point."

You say, "But had no luck with such."

You say, "Was long ago though."

Kadesha asks, "at what point?"

Odevalis asks, "a commune was attempting to Talbot in the past already right? I can't remember if one was or not... if one was, was it successful?"

You say, "When the tomb was still there."

Odevalis says, "ah, yeah.. k"

Odevalis nods to you.

Ryever says, "They were overpowered, but the fact that they survived their imprisonment as liches is testament enough to the fact that they could not be killed in their time."

You glance at Ryever.

You sigh.

Daelnor shudders.

Tebon says, "Times change...."

Daelnor says, "liches...ah ha' nae a bit o love fer"

Daelnor says, "some folk jes dun know when ta lay down an die"

Tebon says, "Ifin they are undead, they kin be defeated, dun't matter how strong dey is"

Aranrhod smiles at Daelnor.

You blurt out, "Thurfel got out! It's all his fault! All his fault! He will pay!" @ Iscikella suddenly blurts out, "Thurfel got out! It's all his fault! All his fault! He will pay!"

Daelnor says, "ha' anyone perhaps.."

Daelnor fidgets.

You blink.

You wring your hands.

Daelnor says, "ok..mebbe some won like this idea.."

You say, "Thank is not me...."

Kadesha begins chuckling at Daelnor.

Tebon glances at you.

You whisper quietly to Kadesha, "Entity."

Daelnor asks, "but perhaps...entreatied to Goseana ta claim them as they should ha been long ago?"

Tebon peers quizzically at you.

Daelnor fidgets.

Daelnor shifts his weight.

Aranrhod raises an eyebrow.

You flail your arms about.

Odevalis slowly empties her lungs.

Aranrhod leans against the north wall.

Kadesha glances at you.

You exclaim, "That wasn't me talking!"

Tebon squints.

Aranrhod asks, "When?"

Junis rubs you gently.

Daelnor blinks at you.

Tebon says, "Thank is not me"

Aranrhod sits down.

Daelnor nods to you.

Odevalis raises an eyebrow.

You say, "It's speaking in my head then..."

You flail your arms about.

Lord Blizzerdd just arrived.

Aranrhod's face turns slightly pale.

Daelnor waves to Blizzerdd.

Tebon and Blizzerdd clasp forearms in greeting.

Blizzerdd grins.

Aranrhod turns to face you.

Daelnor furrows his brow.

Junis says, "Mayhaps thas cause its too weak"

Blizzerdd bows to Daelnor.

(Aranrhod glances up at Iscikella)

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Iscikella who is surrounded by a soft white light.

You whisper, "I heard... "Thurfel got out! It's all his fault! All his fault! He will pay!"" to your group.

Blizzerdd just gave you a smooch.

Aranrhod says, "You still look alright"

You cover your ears.

Blizzerdd says, "Hey hon."

You lean on Blizzerdd.

You exclaim, "It's screaming in my head!"

Tebon furrows his brow.

Daelnor bites his lip.

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Iscikella who is surrounded by a soft white light.

Daelnor says, "tha entity"

Daelnor says, "it is...back"

Tebon glances at Vazridth.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Blizzerdd exclaims, "What!"

Aranrhod says, "Iscikella"

Aranrhod says, "Think about the ones around you"

Vazridth says, "Yes..Do something Kadesha."

Aranrhod says, "Focus..."

Aranrhod just tried to pull you towards her!

(Vazridth chuckles softly)

Kadesha draws a glowing pattern in the air before you.
You appear to be unaffected.

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

Odevalis glances at Vazridth.

Tebon says, "Iscikella, ye's stand amongst Honorable friends"

Kadesha draws a glowing pattern in the air before you.
CS: +532 - TD: +267 + CvA: +14 + d100: +37 - -5 == +321
Warding failed!
Your thoughts drift off to a battle field where a lone figure, bedecked in battle worn armor, sends wave after wave of undead to a more peaceful eternity.

Kadesha says, "sorry"

Daelnor fidgets.

Kadesha says, "lets just see what happens a moment"

Aranrhod says, "How long...."

Daelnor glances at a modwir hilted skinning knife.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Daelnor blinks.

Vazridth rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Daelnor's face turns slightly pale.

Ryever says, "Putting her in the hands of Sheru, splendid idea."

Blizzerdd says, "Keep her under control Kadesha."

Ryever rolls his eyes.

(Odevalis caresses Iscikella's hair soothingly.)

Junis asks, "Uh, whas if she wakes up an its not her again?"

Tebon says, "In tha hands of Ronan"

Vazridth grins at Ryever.

Tebon glances at Ryever.

Zacciwie pokes his finger at a dark rolaren ring incised with a masterful etching of Ronan's symbol.

Odevalis says, "as Aranrhod suggests, keep your eyes open an focus on those around you hun"

You awake from a dream startled. You are lying down.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Daelnor snuggles up to Aranrhod.

Junis says, "Well now you're out too, an I tells ya you better get out o Iscikella or you'll be in a whorld of hurt"

Vazridth asks, "What exactly is Thurfel's fault?"

Junis raises his fist defiantly.

A dense fog gathers around you, but soon fills the area.

Aranrhod strides over to stand before you.

Blizzerdd stands in front of you.

Tebon growls ferociously!

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

Aranrhod says, "Iscikella"

Kadesha says, "see Spirit? he cares not for your torment"

You flail your arms about.

Kadesha stares at you.

(Tebon moves into a defensive position near Iscikella)

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Leave my wife spirit!"

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Blizzerdd glares.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Daelnor exclaims, "Iscikella, fight it!"

(Iscikella looks a bit dazed.)

Daelnor exclaims in Sylvankind, "let not that vile spirit lay your soul low!"

Kadesha says, "Spirit, Luukos used all of you, and look what happened to you"

Kadesha says, "Luukos lied to you Spirit"

Tebon exclaims, "Aye, tha Master of Lies, doin wat he does, best, lyin to ye's!"

Aranrhod glances at you.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Iscikella who is surrounded by a soft white light.

You say, "The spirit in the Centre talked about the town, yet the entity still speaks only of Thurfel..."

Junis gulps.

Blizzerdd softly kisses his Mularos symbol, murmuring to himself.

Tebon says, "Mayhap tha entity nae in touch wit it's buddies"

You reach out and touch a golden Lumnis symbol.

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

You nod to Tebon.

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.

You say, "And that might be a very good thing."

Kadesha takes off a polished ebonwood Lorminstra symbol inlaid with the image of a golden key.

Blizzerdd says, "I will quiet this spirit."

Blizzerdd removes a strong leather gag from in his raw white silk robe.

Kadesha raises her Lorminstra symbol skyward!

A sickly glow pulses for a moment somewhere in the shadows.

Blizzerdd glances at a strong leather gag.

Junis glares.

Junis sniffs.

Daelnor says, "ye would not be quietin' tha spirit, Blizzerdd"

Junis says, "I smell snake"

Ryever smiles.

(Blizzerdd scratches his right cheek with his right thumb)

Kadesha holds her Lorminstra symbol high, staring intently into the image of a golden key. The symbol radiates a pale glow, and the image shimmers and coalesces for a moment into the visage of Lorminstra for all to see. Words seem to spring unbidden to Kadesha's lips as the vision overwhelms her and she calls out, "Grant that we be worthy of your deliverance, Goddess of rebirth!"

Zacciwie nods to Junis.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "She cannot fight what is destined to be." Small bouts of laughter skirt the edges of the fog, "They shall return to reap their vengeance..."

Zacciwie covers his nose tightly.

Kadesha puts on a polished ebonwood Lorminstra symbol inlaid with the image of a golden key.

Daelnor says, "but..only Iscikella's body"

You flail your arms about.

Tebon gazes heavenward.

Blizzerdd put a strong leather gag in his raw white silk robe.

Vazridth grins wickedly.

Odevalis shivers.

Tebon asks, "Gads, wat is dis, a snake den?"

Vazridth says, "Good evening Mi'Lord"

You exclaim, "Nothing is destined, snake!"

Tebon gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Junis says, "The future is ours to make Armaxis, you should know that by now"

Ryever says, "Ah, well met Armaxis, and to think I almost didn't show up for this little chat."

Kadesha exclaims, "Spirit in Iscikella, Thurfel is not who betrays you, but Luukos betrays you!"

Daelnor fidgets.

Aranrhod sighs.

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

Vazridth places his hand on his Luukos symbol.

Aranrhod removes a porcelain Lumnis statue from in her spidersilk sack.

You bite your lip.

Tebon rubs his symbol of Voln.

Daelnor says, "Vazridth, much as ah disagree with ye most times..ah must...apologize to ye"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Tebon gazes heavenward.

Vazridth raises an eyebrow in Daelnor's direction.

Odevalis raises an eyebrow.

Daelnor says, "ah nearly...killed you in this temple a few minutes ago"

Odevalis glances at Vazridth.

Xulia just arrived.

Daelnor furrows his brow.

Xulia gulps.

Daelnor says, "ah do nae know why, it is unlike me"

(Vazridth chuckles softly)

Daelnor says, "but.."

Daelnor says, "..."

Vazridth asks, "And what made you wish to kill me,Daelnor?"

Daelnor looks rather confused.

Xulia rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Xulia just went southwest.

Daelnor says, "that is jes it.."

Odevalis fidgets.

You shiver.

Daelnor says, "ye did nae do anything really deserving o' it"

Blizzerdd asks, "Better love?"

Daelnor fidgets.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at you.

Tebon glances at you.

Kadesha says, "give him time"

You say, "It's cold in here."

Kadesha smiles at Daelnor.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Daelnor hangs his head.

Blizzerdd hugs you.

Daelnor glances at Kadesha.

Odevalis rubs you gently.

Blizzerdd lovingly snuggles up to you and rests his head on your shoulder.

Vazridth says, "You should have."

Vazridth nods to Daelnor.

Daelnor says, "ah ha' ta give mah weapons ta Aran"

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

You mutter, "Why must I suffer so..I want to be free. Thurfel is free. I want to be free. I want to throttle Thurfel...."

Daelnor says, "nae, ah should not have"

Tebon exclaims, "Feh!"

Blizzerdd flails his arms about.

You flail your arms about.

Aranrhod blinks at you.

Daelnor glances at you.

You say, "Isn't me..."

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Quiet spirit!"

You flail your arms about.

Junis exclaims, "I want to throttle you, Gets outta Iscikella you foul spirit!"

Tebon says, "Leave her be spirit"

Daelnor exclaims, "leave her be, vile spirit!"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Burst from your prison, her well-being matters not..."

Odevalis says, "You are cowardice spirit, quite..."

Odevalis shakes her head.

Tebon says, "Watch ye's forked tongue snake"

Tebon glares.

Junis glares.

Aranrhod says, "Wrong Armaxis"

Blizzerdd squints.

Blizzerdd tightens his grip on his crested tower shield.

Daelnor exclaims, "aye, spirit, leave iscikella, take Armaxis!"

Arimantis's group just arrived.

Daelnor clasps his hand over his mouth.

Alyxandrah gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Ryever says something in Dark Elven.

Blizzerdd stands in front of you.

Alyxandrah whispers, "Are you well?"

Blizzerdd says, "I think not."

Kadesha says, "Spirit you suffer because you served Luukos"

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "No, the entity is awake..."

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

Alyxandrah winces.

Daelnor glances at Kadesha.

Daelnor blinks.

Ravonprayer moves to stand in front of Alyxandrah.

Daelnor glances at you.

Aranrhod asks, "Spirit...what did your mother call you as a child?"

Tebon peers quizzically at Daelnor.

Odevalis says, "if you are so strong spirit, fear not to give us the information we wish for... what is your name? Stop cowarding in the body of my friend, leave her be, and deal with the consequences of your past actions by remaining locked away..."

Odevalis frowns.

Daelnor glances at Tebon.

Daelnor looks rather confused.

Tebon glances at Daelnor.

Ryever says something in Dark Elven.

Tebon asks, "Daelnor....ye's alright?"

You say, "Why do ye say ye suffer, spirit? Explain this? It seems only I suffer."

Daelnor looks over at Tebon and shakes his head.

Kadesha peers quizzically at Daelnor.

Daelnor slowly empties his lungs.

Junis just touched Daelnor.

Tebon glances at you.

Tebon glances at Daelnor.

Junis asks, "Whas wrong?"

Aranrhod says, "Guess they do not remember their mothers"

Vazridth asks, "Spirit,how can we help free you from your prison?"

Daelnor says, "um..cannae explain"

Ryever says something in Dark Elven.

Daelnor fidgets.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say something in Dark Elven.

Daelnor says, "it is nae important now"

Tebon frowns.

Junis squints.

Tebon furrows his brow.

(Iscikella looks upset.)

Daelnor says, "Iscikella is wha' be important"

Aranrhod glances at you.

(Iscikella runs a hand through her hair.)

Ryever says, "Oh, I think she would disagree."

Ryever smiles.

Aranrhod frowns.

Blizzerdd gazes fondly at you.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Alyxandrah whispers, "What did the entity say or do? Anything of import?"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Kadesha asks, "Iscikella?"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Iscikella is nothing more than a stage." The voice laughs quietly, the sound moving about the room. "A stage for the vengeance which has been promised to be set forth from..."

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "Is screaming that is Thurfel's fault it suffers."

Kadesha asks, "you here too?"

Lord Joter just arrived.

Setzier whispers, "Fondling with your hair," the voice filters from nearby. "Always fondling with your hair. Nervous? Anticipating the moment when something - or someone - may explode from your chest cavity?"

You shiver.

Kadesha says, "Snake come out of hiding and say that"

Daelnor breaks out in a sweat.

Odevalis whispers, "I've never noticed this frequent tendancy to fidget with your hair... are you alright...? I mean.. no, of course you arent, I'm sorry..."

Odevalis frowns.

Tebon says, "He nae brave enuff Kadesha"

Tebon glances at Daelnor.

(Iscikella leans heavily again Blizzerdd.)

Kadesha glowers.

Daelnor narrows his eyes.

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Does the truth scare you, mm?"

Ravonprayer rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Blizzerdd says, "And ye are a blunt tool of a jester Armaxis. She has more power of spirit that ye think."

You exclaim, "Tell it to find another stage, snake!"

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Such that you must...lash out against those who speak it?"

You feel a burning hatred rise up inside you. You glare at those around you. You feel as though you want to lash but can't.

Joter asks, "What is the truth?"

Kadesha says, "I aint the one hiding, snake"

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

Arimantis glances at you.

Junis exclaims, "Kadesha, stop her!"

You exclaim, "Careful!"

You exclaim, "Careful!"

Daelnor asks, "is it gone?"

Joter gestures at you.
CS: +159 - TD: +289 + CvA: +14 + d100: +24 - -5 == -87
Warded off!

Vazridth says, "Release your anger spirit."

Daelnor peers quizzically at you.

Alyxandrah rolls her eyes.

Ravonprayer moves to stand in front of Alyxandrah.

You hear the voice of Setzier ask, "Did you kill last evening, Iscikella? Did you slip from your sheets and wander the streets with a kitchen knife?"

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

A faint glint of reddish light appears in the shadows.

Aranrhod exclaims, "Iscikella!"

Daelnor glowers.

Alyxandrah blinks.

Aranrhod just tried to pull you towards her!

You wring your hands.

Tebon gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Vazridth hisses.

You exclaim, "It's angry!"

Joter says, "Setzier"

You exclaim, "Careful!"

Odevalis frowns.

Tebon says, "Sheesh, dis place reeks of Lornonites"

Joter stands up.

Alyxandrah says, "Let it be angry."

Blizzerdd stands in front of you.

Alyxandrah waves her hand in a dismissive gesture.

You exclaim, "Careful!"

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Arimantis asks, "Who is it angry at?"

(Odevalis eyes Iscikella causiously, yet with concern.)

Ryever says, "Such hostility, bring it forth Odevalis."

Ryever laughs!

Daelnor says, "give me my weapons Aran"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Daelnor says, "I will put him to rest"

Daelnor stands up.

Junis asks, "Whas goin on, whys everyon gettin angry?"

Aranrhod removes a veniom threaded harness from in her hooded cloak.

Daelnor clenches his fist.

Alyxandrah gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Aranrhod offers Daelnor a porcelain Lumnis statue.

Junis just tried to pull Daelnor towards him!

Daelnor narrows his eyes.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Yesss...let it use you as a channel for its desires..."

Joter says, "Where are you Setzier, I owe you one"

Kadesha says, "Spirit, it is Luukos who causes your torment"

Aranrhod offers Daelnor a veniom threaded harness.

Junis says, "Calm down friend"

Arimantis squints at you.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Give in to its will."

Junis exclaims, "Aranrhod, no!"

You wring your hands.

You wring your hands.

Daelnor glances at Aranrhod.

Setzier whispers, "Perhaps you should go wander the streets - picking a ripe being to slaughter..."

Daelnor grins coldly, his eyes reflecting no emotion.

Blizzerdd says, "Fight it love, I know ye can."

Blizzerdd just gave you a smooch.

Junis exclaims, "Stop this, everyone!"

You hear a deranged cackling nearby.

You cover your ears.

Daelnor says, "yes, give my weapons"

Joter says, "I won't give in"

Aranrhod comes out of hiding.

Aranrhod put a veniom threaded harness in her hooded cloak.

Vazridth says, "Go on spirit..Think of Thurfel. Think of his freedom. How he has what you wish.. "

Daelnor says, "just a knife will do"

Aranrhod says, "No"

Daelnor clenches his fist.

Arimantis glances at Vazridth.

Alyxandrah glances at Vazridth.

Daelnor fidgets.

Junis draws a glowing pattern in the air before Daelnor.
CS: +125 - TD: +82 + CvA: +2 + d100: +79 - -5 == +129
Warding failed!
Daelnor's face loses all expression as a calmness sweeps over him.

Odevalis stares at Vazridth.

(Joter shakes Iscikella)

Daelnor blinks.

Joter touches you.

You shudder.

Joter says, "Come on Isci"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Think of the citizensss, and how they imprisoned you so wrongly, yes..."

Blizzerdd asks, "That is what Thurfel wants spirit. Ye wish to still be his tool?"

Joter says, "Stay with me"

You hear a sinister hissing nearby.

Alyxandrah whispers, "It will not win, fight it m'lady. Fight it!"

(Junis places his hands on Daelnor's shoulders and shakes him lightly)

Blizzerdd chuckles.

Junis exclaims, "Come out of it!"

Joter says, "I am with you"

Aranrhod clasps Daelnor's hand tenderly.

You reach out and touch a golden Lumnis symbol.

Daelnor furrows his brow.

Joter says, "Just like in the keep"

You kiss your Lumnis symbol softly, murmuring a quiet prayer.

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Daelnor who is surrounded by a soft white light.

Blizzerdd grins evilly.

Kadesha rubs Daelnor gently.

Joter says, "We can see this out together"

Daelnor says, "I need...air, I think"

Vazridth surveys the area.

Daelnor turns around.

Daelnor just went southwest.

Kadesha gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Kadesha gestures at you.
An aura of bright red surrounds you then fades as quickly as it came.

Odevalis clenches her fist.

Aranrhod blinks.

Aranrhod just went southwest.

Ryever says, "Did you not lend that traitor strength, entity? Is it not because of this that you are too weak to destroy him now? What an insipid rage that must be inside of you."

You hear the voice of Setzier ask, "Look at how these people use their freedom, growing plump with the knowledge they can go anywhere. Just how... does that make you feel?"

Tebon says, "Free ye's self spirit, an' seek peace, der is nae need fer violence"

Alyxandrah peers quizzically at Arimantis.

You exclaim, "Stop!"

Joter says, "Setzier, I will get you later. I have a special way of getting back at people."

You cover your ears.

Armaxis whispers, "Kill them, kill them..." The words repeat themselves over and over, the tone of the voice like a droll chant, "They must die..."

Joter says, "I don't attack"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Blizzerdd hugs you.

You vigorously shake your head.

Odevalis rubs you gently.

Junis begins to twitch.

Joter says, "Come on Isci, stay with me"

Blizzerdd says, "I do not like anyone tormenting my wife."

Blizzerdd glares.

Vazridth asks, "Anyone but you,hmm?"

Vazridth grins at Blizzerdd.

Ryever says, "Poor Iscikella, how much you bear for these people. I can't say I envy you."

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Thats right!"

Joter says, "We saw each other through Setzier's potions"

Blizzerdd glares at Vazridth.

You exclaim, "Spirit, what do ye want!"

You flail your arms about.

Aranrhod just arrived.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "I believe it wants blood..."

Vazridth asks, "Worried he might torment her more than you are able?"

Joter says, "We can do it now"

Joter says, "No Isci"

Junis gazes heavenward.

Joter says, "Don't give in"

Aranrhod asks, "What?"

Blizzerdd scoffs at Vazridth.

Kadesha fidgets.

You exclaim, "NO BLOOD!"

You flail your arms about.

Tebon says, "Hold strong to ye's faith Iscikella, ye's 'ave friends here wit ye's"

Vazridth says, "The spirit wishes to be free Iscikella. To free himself and the remaining council"

(Odevalis runs her own fingers through Iscikella's hair in adesperate attempt to be soothing.)

Blizzerdd asks, "Ye think that Luukos know more of pain than the hand that directs mine?"

Blizzerdd cackles!

Setzier whispers, "Just how long can you last, Sylvan? How long until your control lapses and the One of Nine has utter movement within your body? Total control to do whatever it wants - even kill."

Aranrhod glances at Vazridth.

Blizzerdd removes a leather whip from in his raw white silk robe.

Blizzerdd licks a leather whip.

Odevalis says, "dont listen to them... try to force the entity away..."

Joter turns to face you.

Odevalis bites her lip.

Joter says, "come on Isci"

You say, "I'm trying, Ode, but I don't know how..."

Joter says, "Hear me"

You clench your fist.

Aranrhod shakes her head.

Odevalis nods.

Joter says, "Hear us"

Odevalis says, "find a focus here... in the room, thats comforting..."

You say, "It is very angry... I feel so much of its anger..."

Joter says, "We are the voice you should listen to, not the spirit, not araxmis, not setzier"

Aranrhod tilts her Lumnis statue side to side, making the light play off it.

You bite your lip.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Come now, Sylvan. We know you're too weak against it. Just release your grip, and it'll be over soon. Once it has what it wants, it'll leave."

Aranrhod shows you a porcelain Lumnis statue, which she is holding in her left hand. You see nothing unusual.

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Joter says, "Let us guide you"

Vazridth says, "How helpless you must feel Iscikella. Never knowing what he will do with you next. Never knowing when he will strike down your friends with your own hand."

CRACK! Blizzerdd raises the whip in an arc high above his head and snaps it back with great force and finesse. As he turns his wrist, the whip cracks loudly in response.
Blizzerdd's form is near perfect as the whip circles about him and settles to the ground in a coil.

Odevalis points at a grey altar.

Junis exclaims, "Dont listen to Setzier, he lies!"

Joter says, "Let us help you through"

Blizzerdd says, "Quiet snakes.."

You reach out and touch a grey altar.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "It cannot be fought forever, dear Iscikella...you must give in sometime..."

Joter scoots over in front of you.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "It shall merely be more painful if you wish to fight it."

Tebon says, "Nae, ye's faith will hol' true, ye's are strong enuff"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Junis exclaims, "No, you CAN fight it!"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "...The end has to come, Sylvan. There is no hope for lasting long."

You exclaim, "I will fight it!"

Joter says, "Don't touch Isci, Setzier"

Odevalis says, "focus on it Isci... think on it alone"

Odevalis nods to you.

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis"

You clench your fist.

Odevalis smiles at you.

Caelron says, "the entity is strong, very strong."

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis"

Odevalis rubs you gently.

Joter says, "Or you go through me"

Vazridth says, "You fight a losing battle."

Ryever says, "They cannot lend you their strength as you do them. You bear so much, you deserve rest Iscikella."

Odevalis points at a grey altar.

Joter stands up.

(Blizzerdd gazes deeply into Iscikella's eyes.)

The murderous feeling subsides, though you can feel it still...a jagged kernel of hatred inside you. It is replaced by overwhelmimg self pity. You fall to your knees, sobbing.

Aranrhod blinks.

Aranrhod kneels down.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Yesss, give in..."

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis, your serenity"

Aranrhod rubs you gently.

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

Ryever says, "It could all be over in seconds Iscikella, could all be over."

Blizzerdd says, "Look at me love."

Blizzerdd gazes fondly at you.

Joter kneels down.

Aranrhod just touched a grey altar.

Aranrhod closes her eyes for a moment.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Junis exclaims, "NO, dont believe them! It will only want more!"

Joter scoots over in front of you.

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis, your wisdom"

Joter turns to face you.

You gaze fondly at Blizzerdd.

Aranrhod rubs a porcelain Lumnis statue.

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis your balance"

(Blizzerdd hold's Iscikella's cheeks with his hands and gazes into her eyes.)

(Iscikella looks at Blizz through tear-filled eyes.)

Tebon says, "Fight Iscikella, fight, ye's faith, ye's love, use it all, fight wit ye's soul"

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis your light"

Joter says, "come on, you are strong, you have seen a lot, you can do it"

Vazridth says, "you have aided the spirit up to this point Iscikella..Don't stop now"

Vazridth grins at you.

Setzier whispers, "How long can you survive knowing what it might do when you are unconcious, unaware," the voice seeming to circle you. "How many have suffered at night as you sleep?"

Tebon says, "Kade, I tink Vazridth needs a nap"

Blizzerdd just kissed you on the cheek.

Kadesha whispers, "shut out the voice of the Lornonites"

Joter says, "Be careful before I silence you"

You cover your ears.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "You cannot resist...the will of the Serpent shall be done, through you..."

Junis wrings his hands.

You exclaim, "Quiet, jackal!"

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Blizzerdd asks, "How ye feel my love?"

Daelnor just arrived.

You exclaim, "Quiet, serpent!"

Daelnor leans against the north wall.

Tebon says, "Tha will of tha serpent ain't nuttin compared ta ye's faith Iscikella"

Joter says, "No, you are wrong"

You say, "I feel... sad... I feel its sadness..."

Ryever says, "That would be a great leap of pride."

Junis asks, "Ye alright friend?"

Ryever chuckles.

Junis rubs Daelnor gently.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "You know your control is waivering. Look at how your hands shake. You're doing yourself more harm."

Kadesha glowers darkly at Ryever.

(Daelnor nods slowly)

Odevalis whispers, "block out their poisonous taunts, just block them out and focus on that which is yours... Blizzerdd, your care for Icemule, your friends... you are one of the strongest people I know, and the dirt on my boot named Armaxis, the tool we know as Vazridth, and all the rest are not at your level..."

Odevalis just kissed you on the cheek.

Ryever smiles at Kadesha.

Joter says, "Isci, stay with me"

Daelnor says, "..sorry"

Blizzerdd says, "She shall win Setzier and ye can't stand it."

(Iscikella looks a bit dazed.)

Blizzerdd grins evilly.

Junis says, "Dont listen to them Iscikella, your strength of faith is all that stands between this town and the wrath of the nine"

You hear loud, raucous laughter nearby.

Kadesha whispers, "Spirit, Luukos has robbed your peace, seek your rebellion against Luukos"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "She loses every minute she restrains it."

You say, "It is so... sad..."

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

Daelnor hugs his knees and sways side to side.

Vazridth grins.

Aranrhod says, "You know no more than we do Setzier"

Blizzerdd says, "She is no stranger to pain."

Aranrhod rubs you gently.

Aranrhod says, "If that much"

Kadesha whispers, "Spirit, if you in life had not served his bloody goals, you would not have been entombed"

Ryever says, "Indeed she is not."

Ryever nods to Blizzerdd.

Aranrhod sighs.

Odevalis kneels down.

(Joter puts his fingers in precise places on Iscikella's head using his empathic talents to try to relieve the dizziness.)

Ryever says, "Nor are you, how you must feel for her now."

Vazridth says, "So sad Iscikella..Ease its pain..help it."

Kadesha whispers, "Spirit, it is Luukos who causes your anguish"

You say, "It wants freedom..."

Joter says, "No, don't isci"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Give it what it desires, yesss..."

Aranrhod glances at Vazridth.

Junis exclaims, "Dont listen to its lies Iscikella!"

Blizzerdd asks, "Ye think that these pathetic minions of a long lost time have the strength to pull her from her calling?"

Tebon says, "It wants revenge, dun't let it go Iscikella"

Aranrhod says, "Stop"

Aranrhod turns to face you.

Rawen whispers, "It wants freedom only to destroy everything you love"

Joter says, "You do that and who knows what will happen"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "You know you wish it released - all the trouble it has caused you."

Kadesha whispers, "Spirit, you could be free with Lorminstra, and have peace byond the gates, beyond the grasp of Luukos"

Aranrhod says, "Iscikella"

Blizzerdd just gave you a smooch.

Odevalis says, "what brings you warmth and happiness? Push the invader's feelings out of you.. they are not YOUR feelings, they have no right to impose on you in such a way..."

Ryever says, "I believe she has of late taken a fondness to followers of dark paths in need. And they to her."

Odevalis rubs you gently.

Aranrhod shows you a porcelain Lumnis statue, which she is holding in her left hand. You see nothing unusual.

Tebon says, "Feh, all ye's snakes an' jackals ramblin off at tha mouth prolly causin her more trouble den enyting"

You reach out and touch a golden Lumnis symbol.

Blizzerdd pulls you to your feet.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Vazridth says, "YOu can feel him..You are the key..Aid his sadness and release him."

Ryever says, "Ignoring such a thing is what brought her to this point, letting it rest by her side."

Ryever says, "She should expel it, free it, relieve herself of it's presence."

You cover your ears.

Kadesha says, "the sadness of the spirit is caused by its service to Luukos"

You say, "So many words... so many..."

Daelnor scoots over in front of Aranrhod.

You hear someone chuckling.

Daelnor leans on Aranrhod.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "The longer it stays in your body, the longer it has a chance to do others harm - by your hands."

Aranrhod blinks at you.

Daelnor says in Elven, "Aran, do not..under any circumstances, give me a weapon"

Blizzerdd whispers, "Listen to me wife, or spirit, Ye are mine. Ye have been for ages now. "

Joter says, "The longer it is in you the longer you can control it"

(Aranrhod gazes at Iscikella quietly)

Blizzerdd put a leather whip in his raw white silk robe.

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

You hear someone laugh.

Blizzerdd exclaims, "We go!"

Daelnor says in Elven, "until we are away from all of these people"

Joter says, "Come on Isci"

Joter says, "Don't give in"

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Do you wish to do harm, Iscikella? You cannot resist in in your sleep...will you wake up with blood ssstaining your clothes the following morning?"

Aranrhod nods to Daelnor.

Neava just arrived.

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Will your dreams be haunted by the faces of your victimsss, hmm?"

Joter says, "Isci, you have not to killed yet and you know you won't"

You hear the voice of Setzier ask, "Her control is waivering as each night passes. Each night a chance of an occurance. Did I hear about a missing child?"

Tebon says, "Feh, hush up Snake"

Tebon says, "Ye's too Jackal"

Tebon smirks.

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Lord Danadiyi just arrived.

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Anyone tries to harm her dies!"

You hear a deranged cackling nearby.

Blizzerdd glares.

Joter says, "Don't let these two upset you"

Odevalis just touched Blizzerdd.

Junis wrings his hands.

Blizzerdd licks a fel hafted vultite waraxe.

Joter says, "They are trying to get you upset so you lose control"

Joter says, "tune them out"

Aranrhod says, "Stop with your foolish gossip"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Ryever says something in Dark Elven.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "She already has."

Ryever chuckles.

Aranrhod says, "Would expect more even of you both"

Odevalis says, "reaction to them doesnt help Iscikella in ridding herself of this present disturbance..."

Setzier whispers, "You're going against your nature, Sylvan. You're harming a being. It wants released, and you keep it prisoner. Let go..."

Odevalis nods to Blizzerdd.

Kadesha says, "its almost nap time for the snakes"

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

An emperor penguin waddles into the room.

Tebon says, "makes it quieter though"

Danadiyi pokes you in the ribs.

You cover your ears.

Blizzerdd glares at Danadiyi.

Neava rubs you gently.

Danadiyi says, "I`m just looking"

Kadesha just hugged Neava.

You say, "Too many words."

Joter says, "That it isci, concentrate on yourself and protecting others like you always have"

Kadesha whispers, "Lumnis, your serenity"

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Kadesha hugs you.

Danadiyi touches you.

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Vazridth says, "Let it end Iscikella. "

Armaxis whispers, "Will you let it suffer further? Are you not a healer? Ease itsss pain, yes...give it what it wishes..."

Hhooru fades into visibility.

Hhooru removes a silvery kelyn-edged misericord from in his tooled wrist sheath.

Daelnor leans on Aranrhod.

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You exclaim, "I can't heal spirits, snake! Cease!"

You flail your arms about.

Vazridth grins.

Setzier whispers, "Release it, and it'll be healed. That is what you do, is it not? Let go..."

Vazridth says, "You have brought it this far"

Joter says, "Isci, keep control"

Aranrhod shifts her weight.

Kadesha says, "say good night Vazridth"

Armaxis whispers, "Give it blood, yesss...give it freedom..."

Daelnor fidgets.

Joter says, "Stay in control"

Tebon says, "night Vazridth"

Tebon waves to Vazridth.

Kadesha gestures and utters a phrase of magic.

Vazridth smirks.

The emperor penguin waves its stubby wings about.

Aranrhod says, "No"

Junis wrings his hands.

Daelnor rubs his eyes.

Vazridth says, "Go on then Kadesha..You cannot sleep us all"

Tebon grins.

Aranrhod says, "He should be able to talk..."

Vazridth seems to be waiting for something.

Aranrhod sighs.

You cover your ears.

Kadesha says, "don need to"

Daelnor glances at you.

Neava says in guild speak, "keep control, pray to your Lady"

Ryever says, "Kadesha, such wanton displays of power are unnecessary."

Aranrhod blinks at Kadesha.

Junis softly kisses his Lorminstra symbol, murmuring to himself.

You kiss your Lumnis symbol softly, murmuring a quiet prayer.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Tebon says, "Ye's skeered eh, Ryever"

Aranrhod blinks at you.

Neava nods to you.

Daelnor says, "put aside your quarrels of Arkati, Iscikella is our concern here"

Daelnor rubs Kadesha gently.

Ryever says, "If you remember correctly, it was the attempt to suppress the voices of others that led to this very situation."

(Iscikella wraps her arms about Blizzerdd's neck.)

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Vazridth says, "Focus your magic on me Kadesha..Forget the spirit..Take your anger out on those who cannot defend. Release your anger that you can do nothing for her."

Vazridth waves a hand at Kadesha, dismissing her indifferently.

Joter says, "Isci, calm down"

Aranrhod says, "Do not do it..."

Daelnor moves to stand in front of Vazridth.

Joter scoots over in front of you.

Daelnor turns to face Kadesha.

Daelnor shakes his head.

Aranrhod says, "Daelnor"

You hear the voice of Setzier ask, "What will it be, Sylvan? Keep the being prisoner, and harm it, or release it safely?"

Kadesha says, "I am not quarreling Arkati, I merely wish to stifle those who whisper additional torment to Iscikella"

You say, "It's quiet now... don't feel the sadness..."

Daelnor looks over at Kadesha and shakes his head.

Joter says, "Isci you kill anyone you kill me"

Hhooru blinks.

Vazridth says, "I whisper to no one."

Odevalis smiles at you.

Odevalis hugs you.

Kadesha just hugged Tebon.

Tebon just hugged Kadesha.

Daelnor shuffles his feet.

Odevalis slowly empties her lungs.

Daelnor closes his eyes for a moment.

Joter says, "I am here"

Odevalis touches you.

Aranrhod just tried to pull Daelnor towards her!

Odevalis asks, "it is gone?"

Ryever says, "But he does not see it as torment, perhaps he indeed wishes this to be over? I'd think since our last conversation you'd be a bit more openminded."

(Daelnor nods slowly)

Aranrhod says, "Sit"

Daelnor strides over to stand before Aranrhod.

Tebon smiles at you.

Daelnor raises an eyebrow in Aranrhod's direction.

(Aranrhod pats the floor next to her)

You glance at Ryever.

Daelnor sits down.

Aranrhod says, "Please"

(Tebon whispers quietly to Iscikella)

Odevalis says, "as gone as it can be..."

Daelnor leans on Aranrhod.

Aranrhod just hugged Daelnor.

Odevalis says, "that is"

Daelnor just hugged Aranrhod.

Tebon whispers, "hold strong M'lady, Honor to ye's dis eve"

Tebon hugs you.

Blizzerdd smiles at Tebon.

Tebon smiles at Blizzerdd.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Joter says, "Isci, calm down"

Daelnor says, "we will..must talk..soon"

Daelnor nods to Aranrhod.

Tebon says, "Hold strong Blizzerdd"

Tebon turns towards Blizzerdd and renders a sharp salute with his rolaren longsword.

You say, "I am calm..."

Blizzerdd nods to Tebon.

Tebon mutters snakes.

Aranrhod nods to Daelnor.

You hear a deranged cackling nearby.

You say, "The sadness... I don't feel it now..."

Blizzerdd smiles at you.

Daelnor says, "and ye as well, Junis, another besides Aran should here this"

Daelnor says, "but later"

Aranrhod asks, "Iscikella...you will not go about alone...right?"

Daelnor nods to Junis.

Kadesha asks, "Iscikella?"

Aranrhod peers quizzically at you.

Blizzerdd says, "She is safe with me."

Vazridth chuckles.

Vazridth nods to Blizzerdd.

Ryever says, "Of course not, she is beset upon all sides with friends bearing her good will."

Ryever chuckles.

(Iscikella draws closer to Blizzerdd.)

Junis rubs Daelnor gently.

Kadesha says, "Iscikella? do ye have any sense of my whispers to it, how it reacted? and I hope my whispers to you were comfort"

Joter says, "Isci, do me a favor"

Aranrhod says, "You know Blizzerdd...regardless of the past...I believe you"

Junis nods to Daelnor.

Daelnor nods to Blizzerdd.

Setzier whispers, "You cannot be guarded forever, Sylvan." The voice chuckles from somewhere nearby, "It'll come swift, a blacking out perhaps, and the One of Nine will control your body to wreck havoc."

The emperor penguin waves its stubby wings about.

Joter says, "Talk with Kadesha, let her help you. You need to talk with a cleric right now. Maybe she can help you out."

Aranrhod shifts her weight.

The emperor penguin watches you quietly.

Armaxis whispers, "No one can help you now..."

You nod to Kadesha.

Blizzerdd says, "No worries, I know she is strong enough."

Joter says, "I know it helped me when I went through a tough time"

Kadesha asks, "my whispers helped you?"

Kadesha peers quizzically at you.

(Daelnor glances at the penguin)

(Aranrhod nods slowly)

Kadesha rubs you gently.

You nod to Kadesha.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Kadesha smiles at you.

Vazridth asks, "It gets harder each time,doesnt it Iscikella?"

Kadesha asks, "what of the whispers to it?"

Armaxis whispers, "You are never alone, that which dwellsss inside you shall take you completely if you do not free it..."

Kadesha peers quizzically at you.

You say, "It is very sad, not just angry."

Kadesha whispers, "did my whispers seem to make it sad?"

Junis squints.

Odevalis says, "the shift from one emotion to the next was terribly fast..."

You whisper quietly to Kadesha, "It was flooded with self-pity."

The emperor penguin shakes its head.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "It shall be comforted as the citizens of Icemule's bodies pile up en masse, yesss..."

Vazridth grins.

You smell a wafting scent of sorrowful decay.

Blizzerdd says, "We must get the spirit to enter Thurfel."

Daelnor growls ferociously!

Kadesha whispers, "I hope its anger would turn to the real source of its pain, which is Luukos"

Daelnor narrows his eyes.

Neava covers her nose tightly.

Daelnor says, "ah say let it ha' armaxis"

Blizzerdd grins wickedly.

Junis says, "I dun think the spirit wants Thurfel's body"

Neava peers quizzically at Blizzerdd.

The emperor penguin preens itself quietly.

Blizzerdd paces back and forth.

Neava says, "i dont think thats a good idea at all"

You say, "Right now, Thurfel is trapped somewhere in a mist."

You say, "and he tried to help me, love."

You say, "He tried."

You bite your lip.

Blizzerdd glares.

Vazridth grins.

Junis blushes a glowing shade of red.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Yes, you can thank Junis for that failure."

Aranrhod says, "Of course you would be somewhere in the middle Armaxis...guess you would enjoy that"

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Kadesha rubs Junis gently.

Odevalis whispers, "perhaps the entity is not very sound of mind, so change emotions so quickly... to whine as it did when it forced you to speak it's words... then threaten the next."

Joter says, "That is not a failure, Setzier"

Blizzerdd says, "I do not like this."

Aranrhod says, "Middle...Armaxis...sounds fair"

Aranrhod shrugs.

Daelnor asks, "why must ye snakes cling to tha shadows?"

Joter says, "It is a learning experience, in that way we learned where Setzier was"

Daelnor gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Ryever says, "Greetings Aranrhod, I missed you in the crowd, such a long time it has been."

Aranrhod nods to Ryever in greeting.

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

You sigh softly.

You say, "It is very... impatient."

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd whispers, "I do not like this. I think that if ye need to be freed it should be my stroke that frees ye."

Ryever says, "Ah, and Neava, I do now truly feel surrounded by friends."

Ryever laughs!

Daelnor says, "ye cannae possibly be THA' ugly"

Junis fidgets.

Neava glances at Ryever.

Ryever smiles at Junis.

Ryever says, "You neglected to relate your part in this Junis."

Blizzerdd stands in front of you.

You kiss Blizzerdd on the cheek.

Ryever asks, "Perhaps later?"

Junis glares.

Daelnor glances at Ryever.

Daelnor glances at Junis.

(Junis hand darts quickly to the hilt of his falchion)

Daelnor furrows his brow.

Junis exclaims, "Shush!"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "He quelled the only hope of help Iscikella had..."

You hear someone chuckling.

You say, "But it did seem... out of touch with what the others did this night..."

Junis glares.

You say, "This entity."

Neava just touched Junis.

Daelnor glances at Junis.

Vazridth grins at Junis.

(Ryever holds his hands gracefully apart)

Kadesha says, "don worry Junis, your friens know where yer heart is"

Daelnor glances at Ryever.

Daelnor grins coldly, his eyes reflecting no emotion.

Ryever says, "Don't hesitate if it's what you wish Junis, I doubt you could do much as it is."

Neava says, "not you falt Junis, you tryed to help"

Kadesha says, "nothin they like more than trying to inflict guilt and shame"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Junis doesn't want Iscikella to be well. He pushed the man away."

Ryever says, "Near success seems to be a trademark."

Junis growls ferociously!

Daelnor snarls menacingly!

In one blurring motion, Junis snatches a bone white vultite axe from his backpack, brandishing it for all to see.

Daelnor exclaims, "lies!"

Junis slings a shiny silver alloy buckler off from over his shoulder.

Ryever laughs!

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Yesss, a commendable job, Junis..."

You say, "Jackal, ye know was because we nae knew what was happening."

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Ryever exclaims, "Come on now Junis!"

You say, "I did scream... I was frightened."

The emperor penguin preens itself quietly.

You hear loud, raucous laughter nearby.

Junis glares.

Ryever smiles at Junis.

Daelnor moves to stand behind Junis.

Hhooru nods.

Junis lets out a loud snarling growl and goes berserk!

Daelnor clenches his fist.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Oh, Junis knew who it was. Ask him. His motives are hidden, Sylvan."

Junis spins around looking for something to attack!
Junis lets out a blood curdling scream of frustration!
The berserker's rage leaves Junis's eyes and he looks weakened.

Ryever snickers.

Junis roars!

Ryever says, "I thought so."

Ryever waves a hand at Junis, dismissing him indifferently.

Aranrhod says, "I do not trust Thurfel or the nine...and I know it is hard for some of you to grasp...."

Kadesha rubs Junis gently.

Aranrhod says, "My concern is for Iscikella"

Daelnor exclaims, "ah doubt tha, ye dung wearin fiend!"

Joter says, "I trust Thurfel over the Nine"

Junis begins to walk southwest but suddenly trips and goes flailing out of sight!

Daelnor glares.

Aranrhod mutters something about simple.

Kadesha says, "I dont"

Blizzerdd says, "I trust neither "

Joter says, "Look at it this way"

You say, "I don't believe Thurfel would hurt me."

Kadesha says, "I think Thurfel wishes exactly that"

You say, "Whatever else, I don't believe that."

Vazridth says, "I see an anger I didn't think you had in you,Daelnor."

Joter says, "The Nine are after Thurfel"

Vazridth raises an eyebrow in Daelnor's direction.

Daelnor slowly empties his lungs.

Blizzerdd glances at you.

Ryever says, "A pity, without my wardings or tools of war about me, he might have made a bloody mess of the place."

Daelnor glances at Vazridth.

Aranrhod says, "I cannot trust any of them Iscikella"

Joter says, "We know that"

Ryever sighs.

Daelnor blinks.

Aranrhod sighs.

Vazridth says, "Amusing."

(Daelnor glances about)

Joter says, "So in Thurfel we have an ally"

Daelnor fidgets.

Kadesha says, "Vazridth? there is nothing wrong with anger, its what one does with it that matters, and motives"

Aranrhod just tried to pull Daelnor towards her!

Daelnor kneels down.

Aranrhod says, "Daelnor"

Vazridth says, "Nothing wrong with anger at all."

Daelnor glances at Aranrhod.

Aranrhod says, "Do not let him make you angry"

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "So sure of yourself, hmm? Who do you think instructed me to give the orb to our dear Iscikella?"

Daelnor says in Elven, "..."

Aranrhod smiles at Daelnor.

Vazridth says, "Simply a bit surprised to see such anger from him"

You hear someone chuckling.

Vazridth points at Daelnor.

Neava says, "allthough i dare say if he has a choice between his life and hers, he would chose his own"

Blizzerdd says, "Ye are wrong hon. He wishes to use you, nothing more. He will try anything to get ye, including this farce."

Neava nods to Joter.

Blizzerdd glances at you.

Kadesha says, "you didn give the orb to Iscikella, snake"

Daelnor glares.

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Aranrhod says, "Because a part of himself that he does not understand feeds off of that"

Aranrhod nods to Daelnor.

Daelnor gazes heavenward.

You say, "I just want to rest here against yer chest, love..."

Ryever says, "I wonder how badly that rubs at you, ranger."

You lean on Blizzerdd.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Still refuse to believe you were used? He expressed his interest in getting it to her...mm."

Ryever asks, "Do you hear his words to her at night? Or whispering upon the wind?"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "And it has."

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

You say, "The entity was full of anger."

Odevalis says, "I must go..."

Odevalis frowns.

Daelnor mutters under his breath.

Odevalis hugs you.

You say, "And then so full of sadness."

Aranrhod asks, "Her mm?"

Odevalis just kissed you on the cheek.

Aranrhod looks rather confused.

Odevalis says, "be strong..."

You kiss Odevalis on the cheek.

Odevalis smiles at you.

Blizzerdd just hugged Odevalis.

Odevalis just kissed Kadesha on the cheek.

Kadesha says, "Armaxis you had no clue I was gonna wrest that from you"

Danadiyi waves a raven's feather around.

Joter says, "The anger in the entity is natural"

Odevalis just hugged Blizzerdd.

Daelnor slowly empties his lungs.

Odevalis just hugged Aranrhod.

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Did I?"

Joter says, "It is mad at being closed in"

Kadesha says, "and no clue what I'd do with it after"

Daelnor says, "I..."

Aranrhod just hugged Odevalis.

Daelnor sighs.

Odevalis just hugged Neava.

Neava just hugged Odevalis.

Odevalis just hugged Joter.

Joter says, "the sadness is that it can't find a way to escape"

Odevalis just hugged Danadiyi.

Daelnor leans against the north wall.

Something touches you.

You say, "It believes itself to be suffering..."

Odevalis glances at Vazridth.

You shiver.

You hear the voice of Armaxis ask, "Or are your kind so predictable as to ensure the plansss of Thurfel all along?"

Vazridth grins at Odevalis.

You hear someone chuckling.

Aranrhod just kissed Odevalis on the cheek.

You exclaim, "Don't touch me, jackal!"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Why Sylvan. I didn't know you had such... dreams of me."

Odevalis says, "I'll be in town for a while, I've decided not to return to Teras as soon as planned"

Aranrhod mutters invisible.

Odevalis nods.

Joter says, "I am not predictable"

Blizzerdd snarls menacingly!

Odevalis waves.

Joter says, "I am cautious"

Lady Odevalis just went southwest.

Daelnor rubs a glass amulet.
Daelnor suddenly disappears.

You mutter something inaudible.

Aranrhod says, "The word dream"

You hear the voice of Daelnor say, "ah dream not o ye, fiend"

Aranrhod says, "Out of his mouth"

Aranrhod snickers.

You hear the voice of Daelnor say, "jes recalling a memorable moment of a gnome, a pile o dung, an yer face"

Danadiyi leans to his right slightly.

Joter says, "And nothing I said here tonight is nothing anyone doesn't already know, I just put it into a perspective."

Aranrhod says, "I would think a nightmare would be more appropriate...not that I wish it on anyone"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Danadiyi whispers, "want me to perform a rite on you?"

Neava kneels down.

Blizzerdd just gave you a smooch.

You hear the voice of Setzier ask, "Half-breed, I would lock your wife up in a closet this evening... Who is to tell what she will do when you sleep. Perhaps kill an innocent, or maybe even you?"

You whisper quietly to Danadiyi, "A rite?"

Kadesha says, "Iscikella, know I trust your heart and spirit completely, and count you a dear friend"

Aranrhod says, "One being's dreams is another's nightmare I suppose"

Danadiyi waves a raven's feather around.

Kadesha says, "no matter who ever maligns you"

You exclaim, "Quiet, jackal!"

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Elven, "mebbe we git lucky an she skin a Jackal"

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd says, "And Ye better sleep lightly for soon my axe shall find yer neck."

Kadesha says, "I know you better Iscikella, and I know your heart is pure"

You hear someone laughing softly nearby.

Kadesha hugs you.

Danadiyi whispers, "was that a no?"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "A knife in the back of her beloved...how deliciously ironic."

Ryever asks, "Or maybe she'll seek out her child, which would hurt you more ranger?"

Blizzerdd says, "Aye laugh softly and fear greatly."

Aranrhod raises an eyebrow.

The emperor penguin begins to watch the goings on carefully.

You whisper quietly to Danadiyi, "What kind of rite?"

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Perhaps she'll torture him, Armaxis. Death by skinning while he is alive..."

You see Lord Danadiyi AccursedDegree the Dark Elf.
He appears to be in his 60's, has unkempt, long dark brown hair, green eyes, and tanned skin.
He is in good shape.
He is holding a raven's feather in his right hand and a gold-trimmed dark blue kite shield in his left hand.
He is wearing a gold ring, a patched green ribbon, a long red silk scarf, a weathered oilskin backpack, some leg greaves, an elegant black silk gem pouch, a heavy roa'ter skin satchel, a dagger sheath, a large gold earring, a butterfly charm, a black alchemy bag, an old gold belt, an opal-studded gold serpent talisman, some rugged worn boots, a black snakeskin hat, a siren lizard scale leather, a raven-black vruul skin cloak, a pink topaz studded steel armband, and a ruby amulet.

Danadiyi waves a raven's feather around.

You hear someone chuckling.

Blizzerdd asks, "Ye think I fear torture?"

Blizzerdd cackles!

Blizzerdd bursts out in loud, raucous laughter.

You hear the voice of Daelnor ask in Sylvankind, "be ye ok, Iscikella?"

Blizzerdd mutters fools.

Blizzerdd snickers.

Danadiyi whispers, "Name is Unspeakable"

Aranrhod says, "Those are his...umm...dreams"

Aranrhod shifts her weight.

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "ah..ah be ha'in..troubles, t'night"

Ryever nods to Aranrhod.

Aranrhod mutters under her breath.

Joter says, "You want torture? You should here me sing."

Kadesha mutters sick.

You whisper quietly to Danadiyi, "Nae, I do not hold with rites to Lornon."

Kadesha leans on Aranrhod.

Aranrhod says, "Course"

Aranrhod nods to Kadesha.

Danadiyi whispers, "It`s no rite to a god"

You say, "I believe so, Daelnor."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "my..balance is...I do nae know"

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "ah apologize fer nae being much help.."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "ah nearly spilled blood here..."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "twice"

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "and..enjoyed the thought"

Aranrhod says, "But...he is part of the balance"

Aranrhod fidgets.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at Aranrhod.

Danadiyi whispers, "It`s a rite to nature."

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "It shall be interesting to see who is here when the Night returns. Perhaps the sylvan will be locked up for murder, or maybe she'll be a widow."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "immensly"

Vazridth grins.

Alyxandrah whispers, "Be well, m'lady."

You say in Sylvankind, "I was afraid the entity would spill blood myself."

You hear the sound of someone snorting.

Joter nods to Alyxandrah.

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "Thank ye, alyx."

Alyxandrah nods to you.

Ryever says, "I'd think the two would go hand in hand, but I'm ever the optimist."

Lady Alyxandrah just went southwest.

Junis just arrived.

You say, "And maybe a lightning bolt will strike ye from the sky, jackal."

Ryever shifts his eyes to Junis.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Ah, the Betrayer has returned."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "I..had to..give Aran my weapons..if she had given them back...Vazridth would be dead"

Blizzerdd says, "Or maybe we will be less one jackel by morning."

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "Or perhapsss a dead child shall lay beside her in bed, along with the exquisite memories..."

Junis sneers.

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "but..I may not have stopped there"

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Vazridth says, "I dont know Setzier..With what I've seen,her friends will soon see her as nothing more than a threat.Perhaps soon it shall be Blizzerdd who sleeps alone."

Ryever says, "Evening to you once again Junis, so very glad you invited me to this little show."

Blizzerdd glares at Vazridth.

Blizzerdd hauls off and slaps Vazridth up'side his head!

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "If I had killed him..I may have lost complete control"

Blizzerdd exclaims, "Quiet!"

Aranrhod says, "Vazridth"

Danadiyi rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "And she brings it upon herself, which is the most lovely thing, Vazridth..."

Danadiyi waves a raven's feather around.

Blizzerdd removes a strong leather gag from in his raw white silk robe.

Aranrhod says, "You say something so foolish"

Danadiyi strides a few steps forward.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Ah, one I have not thought of. Perhaps the sylvan will kill an innocent, and Junis will come along to save the day by killing the sylvan - like he secretly wishes."

Aranrhod says, "Is amusing"

You hear the voice of Armaxis say, "All thisss could be averted...if she gave in."

Aranrhod grins at Vazridth.

Blizzerdd exclaims, "One more word little snake!"

Neava says, "let them not disturb you Blizzerdd, but hold your dear one, she needs you more"

You rub Junis.

Blizzerdd raises his strong leather gag skyward!

Vazridth grins at Blizzerdd.

Junis sighs.

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "I fear I have failed you, tonight"

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Ryever says, "I don't think him so calculated, just blinded by blood and glory."

You hear the voice of Daelnor say in Sylvankind, "you will not hear me say this often...but..I am scared"

You say in Sylvankind, "Nae, ye have not failed, Daelnor."

Blizzerdd says, "Oh don't get me wrong Neava, I love torment, I thrive on it."

Aranrhod asks, "Want to elaborate?"

Blizzerdd twitches a bit and contorts his face in a lunatic grin.

Junis says, "There are some people I would kill, however Iscikella is not one of them Setzier"

Aranrhod leans forward.

Ryever asks, "Seems to be much of a trend amongst those of Voln, prideful things, am I not correct Kadesha?"

Kadesha raises an eyebrow in Ryever's direction.

Vazridth says, "You just wish to prolong her pain."

Vazridth nods to Junis.

You hear the voice of Setzier say, "Your mind betrays your words, giant. You want her dead, else you would not have prevented Thurfel's coming."

Vazridth says, "We understand"

Kadesha asks, "as opposed to you humble Luukosians?"

Kadesha smirks.

Junis exclaims, "I didnt know it was him!"

(Iscikella wraps her arms closer about Blizzerdd.)

Daelnor sits down.

Daelnor leans on Aranrhod.

[Blizzerdd's Home]
A woven black spidersilk carpet adorns the polished dark walnut floor of this room. A finely carved thanot fireplace, a map of Yuriqen hanging above it, rests between an ancient four-poster bed and a carved blackened monir table pushed up against the glossy black ebonwood walls. The room holds a very strong scent of leather oil. You also see a high lancet window and an arched ebonwood door.
Obvious exits: none

Blizzerdd walks in the door.

Blizzerdd closes the door.

Blizzerdd rattles the handle of the door.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

You kiss Blizzerdd.

You sit down on the bed.

You say, "Ye brought me back, love."

(Iscikella gazes with eyes full of love at Blizzerdd.)

(Blizzerdd gazes deeply into Iscikella's eyes in return.)

Blizzerdd asks, "Did I?"

You nod to Blizzerdd.

You say, "Yer love did. I held on to that..."

Blizzerdd smiles warmly at Iscikella.

You gaze fondly at Blizzerdd.

Blizzerdd lies down on the bed.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

You lie down on the bed.

You snuggle up to Blizzerdd and rest your head on his shoulder.

(Iscikella snuggles closer.)

You give a sigh of contentment.

You say, "Is warm here, lying beside ye..."

Blizzerdd slides over to you and cuddles you in his arms.

Blizzerdd just kissed you on the forehead.

You say, "Is where I want to be... lying here beside ye."

You sigh drowsily.

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Blizzerdd says, "And where ya are staying."

Iscikella smiles gently.

You nod to Blizzerdd.

(Iscikella lays her head on Blizzerdd's chest.)

(Blizzerdd lightly touches Iscikella's hair with one hand while wrapping his other arm more protectively about her.)

Blizzerdd says, "Where ya are staying."

You close your eyes for a moment.

(Iscikella drifts off into an exhausted sleep.)
