***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.

[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 halfling deputy, a blood-soaked owl, and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it. Obvious paths: north, south, east, west.

Thurnock says, "Again, I bid you greetings Owl."

Andred says, "let's all mock that owl"

You hear the voice of Sheka say, "Hello Misguided One."

Warding failed!
A blood-soaked owl appears to relax and become calm.

Kisharra applauds Angelrise.

Angelrise jumps forward, looking hastily in all directions while rubbing the back of her head. How odd.

Xulia glances at Angelrise.

Sayuri asks, "Uhm, who is the owling working for?"

The blood-soaked owl hoots, "I want nothing, until we are able to free ourselves, I am but a messenger, but your one savior is gone and helpless. You shall all be nothing more than bones and blood soon enough"

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "What does it want?"

Laskon says, "Obviously the bird is not the one, it is just a representative so be careful of what yew say"

Kizzeric says, "I don't think he's here to make friends."

Junis says, "Bah, yer masters are fools Owl"

Kisharra asks, "Her?"

Cantinor asks, "Wizards talk funny. They teach you that speach?"

You hear the voice of Sheka say, "The Misguided One is."

Something just tapped you on the shoulder!

Solistam says, "We willna sit an' do nothin"

You ask, "Why do ye think that, owl?"

Thurnock says, "Your right owl..he's not coming back..."

Ilvane says, "She is your tool? Interesting."

Belthasas says, "uh oh"

Thurnock says, "So why hide any longer.."

(Iscikella squints at the owl.)

Xulia smiles.

Xulia gazes up into the heavens.

Thurnock glances at Alyxandrah.

You glance at Sabitor.

Thurnock says, "He is not coming back"

(Bhunny pulls the hood of her cloak over her head.)

(Syrellan hops up laboriously onto the top of the ice bench.)

Sabitor glances at you.

Belthasas says, "Iscikella, maybe now is a good time to get the orb out"

Arimantis says, "Of course he is"

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

Alyxandrah says, "Think what you will, Thurnock."

Arimantis nods to Thurnock.

You hear the voice of Sheka say, "Aye Iscikella. It's all your fault....you should be burned."

Xulia says, "she dun have an orb"

The blood-soaked owl watches you sagely for a moment.

Angelrise looks over at Belthasas and shakes her head.

You hear someone cackle.

Xulia laughs!

Alyxandrah says, "I know Thurfel. He will return."

Shaedra says, "We'd do better go guard the well."

Syrellan says, "Why do you not all go home? You shall come to Gosaena in eventuality, regardless of what occurs."

You nod to Alyxandrah.

You say, "He will."

You say, "Ye presume, owl."

Belthasas shrugs.

Alyxandrah says, "This owl....doesna concern me."

The blood-soaked owl hoots, "These paltry storms are but a tiny taste of what you'll feel soon enough. Make your preparations"

Dajamar says, "yes...use the orb"

Syrellan says, "If this owl's Abominable Masters kill you..."

You say, "Ye presume much."

(Dajamar chuckles softly)

Syrellan says, "then, you will be dead."

Taisch smiles and thumps the owl so hard blood splatters everywhere

Shonison says, "im rather enjoyiong the storm"

Xulia asks, "Iscikella, ya tink you can stop dis?"

Sabitor says, "The orb is gone."

The white cat purrs, "Maybe harming Thurfel's love there, Iscikella, will empower him enough to return..."

Angelrise grins at a blood-soaked owl.

Syrellan says, "If you wait for life to end naturally, you will still be dead."

Junis says, "Bah, this storm is weak."

Ilvane closes her eyes for a moment.

Junis stands in front of you.

Thurnock says, "Iscikella is too afraid to do what has to be done"

Junis says, "Don even think about it"

Syrellan sighs.

Shaedra says, "Thurfel's love."

Shaedra snorts.

Thurnock says, "Thurfel will not return"

Xulia nods to Thurnock.

Belthasas says, "erm, he's threatening us now"

Kizzeric says, "Don't even try."

Andred recites:
"OKAY, owl you are starting to be boring, show us something other then talk"

Ryeder asks, "Ye all be blaming each other, while the Owl spies and delivers the message of our weaknesses?"

Laskon asks, "How do yew know what has to be done?"

Ilvane says, "As if you know."

You say, "I think the owl presumes."

Syrellan says, "But you people will not understand that."

Angelrise asks, "what is she supposed to do?"

Kisharra exclaims, "hush!"

Angelrise cocks her head at Thurnock.

A blood-soaked owl does not look as docile as it did just a moment ago.

Xulia pets a blood-soaked owl.

Solistam asks, "An what makes ya think that, Thurnock?"

Xulia smiles at the blood-soaked owl.

Belthasas yells, "Call the Northern Guard!!"

The owl closes its eyes for a moment

Belthasas yells, "To ARMS!!"

Shonison says, "there is no reason to call the Fury because of an owl"

Xulia pets a blood-soaked owl.

You ask, "Ye tire, owl?"

You ask, "Are ye weakened then?"

Shonison chuckles.

A bolt of lightning streaks down from the sky and strikes Andred!
... 30 points of damage!
Horrid jolt of electricity shatters ribs in a sickening flash of light!
He is stunned!

A tremendous crack of thunder follows instantly!

Junsen grins.

Raindrops begin to form tiny puddles here and there.

Alyxandrah gasps.

Momelf says, "ack"

Sabitor raises an eyebrow.

You hear someone cackle.

Laskon shivers.

Ilu blinks.

Nywvre says, "Oh dear"

The owl screeches, and with a mighty leap, hurls itself into the air.

Shonison says, "ok now we have a problem"

You gasp.

Sabitor begins to twitch.

Kisharra says, "ye should have hushed"

Laskon kneels down and begins to recite prayers.

Neokume coughs.

The blood-soaked owl flies away.

Belthasas says, "I'd advise being prepared"

Kisharra nods to Andred.

Neokume exclaims, "oh my!"

Xulia gazes up into the heavens.

Solistam says, "He wanted action"

Thurnock shakes his head.

Sabitor says, "Damn."

Solistam says, "The fool"

You hear someone cackle.

Solistam says, "He asked for it"

Kisharra says, "i told him to hush"

Thurnock exclaims, "Damn!"

Kisharra shrugs.

Thurnock stamps his feet.

Andred says, "that lacked humor"

Syrellan exclaims, "Owl, your Abominable Masters WILL come to be taken by the Lady Beyond the Gates!"

Shonison says, "we cannot fight a storm cloud"

Cantinor asks, "Where is the Owl?"

Ryeder exclaims, "Bah! Theatrics!"

Angelrise asks, "what'd he say?"

Syrellan exclaims, "I swear it!"

Sabitor glances at Ilvane.

Kisharra says, "owl gone"

Momelf says, "owl is gone"

(Syrellan shakes his fist into the sky after the retreating form of the owl.)


About a quarter hour later...

[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 a wall guardian, some garish shell-studded leathers, a pair of unlaced boots, a pearlescent abalone-hafted halberd, some garish shell-studded leathers, a pair of unlaced boots and a pearlescent abalone-hafted halberd.
Also in the room: Junis, Sabitor, Lord Solistam, Lady Alyxandrah
Obvious exits: south.

Alyxandrah blinks.

Sabitor raises an eyebrow.

Alyxandrah glances at you.

Arimantis squints at a pulsating mist.

You cock your head at Alyxandrah.

Alyxandrah says, "You shouldn't be here."

Alyxandrah stares off into space.

Alyxandrah glances at Junis.

You ask, "Why not?"

Junis asks, "Why?"

Ilvane leans back.

Sabitor says, "Careful, Iscikella."

You ask, "Careful about what?"

Arimantis says, "The others.. they are trying to get out"

Alyxandrah stares off into space.

You give a sigh of confusion.

Sabitor says, "Just... careful."

Crawling shapes scurry about beyond the mist, their misshapen bodies scurrying quickly by.

Junis glares.

Ilvane exclaims, "Oh!"

You ask, "From the mist?"

Sabitor says, "Careful of that."

Solistam says, "I tole ya"

Arimantis stares off into space.

You gawk at a pulsating mist.

Alyxandrah groans.

Junis exclaims, "Gets back in dere!"

Solistam says, "Dat's not Thurfel"

Alyxandrah ducks behind her crested vultite shield.

A wave of power flows out of Junis and toward a pulsating mist.

Ilvane exclaims, "Iscikella, please!"

Junis exclaims, "An stay in!"

Alyxandrah asks, "Would you CEASE!?"

Alyxandrah glances at Junis.

Junis says, "Wells it worked for Thurfel..."

You ask, "What?"

Sabitor glances at Alyxandrah.

Alyxandrah says, "And a lot of good THAT did."

Ilvane says, "Just, don't.."

Junis says, "Well it kept him out, an this should keep dem in"

Sabitor says, "It doesn't help for us to bicker amongst ourselves."

You ask, "Don't what?"

You blink at Ilvane.

Ilvane says, "Be careful..they are using you.."

Alyxandrah says, "Junis, just don't do anything."

Arimantis asks, "Thurfel.. are you alright?"

Junis stares off into space.

Sabitor frowns.

The mist begins to bend and warp.

Arimantis says, "The owl said.. they was usin you"

You say, "The entity isn't even awake, Ilvane."

Arimantis nods to you.

Solistam says, "Well"

Solistam says, "Whatever it is"

Alyxandrah squints at a pulsating mist.

Solistam says, "Its coming."

Sabitor blinks.

Ilvane says, "Oh dear."

Ilvane's face turns slightly pale.

Arimantis peers quizzically at Ilvane.

Solistam glances at Ilvane.

Solistam nods to Ilvane.

Arimantis moves to stand in front of Ilvane.

Sabitor says, "I hope... they're not getting out."

Sabitor's face turns slightly pale.

Solistam tightens his grip on his laen falchion.

Alyxandrah stares off into space.

Ilvane shivers.

Sabitor bites his lip.

Arimantis just tried to pull Ilvane towards him!

A small shape seems to be visible beyond, held fast in claws and pincers

Sabitor blinks.

Arimantis exclaims, "Thurfel!"

Solistam exclaims, "Dat looks like him!"

Sabitor says, "Oh, gads."

You exclaim, "Claws? Pincers!"

Sabitor asks, "How do we get in?"

Alyxandrah gasps.

Junis says, "One o his own creations no doubt"

Ilvane says, "It has him..whatever it is.."

Solistam says, "We cant, right now"

(Iscikella looks upset.)

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel fight them!!"

The shape falls to its knees, overcome by the hoarde upon it.

(Sabitor prods cautiously at the mist with the tip of his blade.)

Ilvane removes a small silver wire pet cage from in her black silk cloak.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "No!!"

Sabitor blinks.

Solistam exclaims, "I'll give you Horde!"

Inexplicably, Arimantis flings himself at a pulsating mist.

You say, "If I can fight, m'lord, ye surely can."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel please...fight them!!"

Solistam exclaims, "For the Oafish Horde!"

You say, "Ye are stronger than I am."

Arimantis exclaims, "You can fight it!"

Alyxandrah clasps her hand over her mouth.

Sabitor says, "Of course... of course he'll make it. He always does."

Sabitor frowns.

Alyxandrah's face turns slightly pale.

Ilvane says, "Iscikella your presence.."

Heat fills the chamber, the blazing temperature raging beyond the barrier.

You exclaim, "Ye are much stronger than I, m'lord, and I have fought. Ye can fight!"

Ilvane exclaims, "You are a danger to him!"

Alyxandrah winces.

You tighten your grip on your violet vultite falchion.

(Solistam staggers back)

Junis coughs.

(Sabitor shields his face with his tower shield.)

Ilvane says, "They will harm him through you.."

Arimantis exclaims, "Fight them!"

Alyxandrah holds back her tears, her eyes glistening with pain.

Ilvane says, "for your feelings towards him Iscikella..please."

Ilvane closes her eyes for a moment.

Alyxandrah gazes at you with a look of utter sorrow in her eyes.

Iscikella turns to Ilvane and simply grins.

(Iscikella runs a hand through her hair.)

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Isci!"

Arimantis glances at you.

Ilvane exclaims, "Iscikella no!"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Go!"

Ilvane exclaims, "Fight it!"

Sabitor raises an eyebrow.

Ilvane glares at you.

You say, "I don't know what is happening."

Junis glances at you.

Ilvane exclaims, "How dare you!"

Junis wrings his hands.

Solistam sighs.

You try to figure out how to ignore yourself.

Alyxandrah glances at Junis.

Sabitor peers quizzically at you.

Arimantis squints at a pulsating mist.

Ilvane says, "Get out of her, leave her be.."

Arimantis asks, "Aren't you supposed to be guardin?"

Arimantis glances at a wall guardian.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel! I beg you...fight them...please!!!"

The figure struggles to its feet, but is quickly dragged down once again, overcome by the sheer number of shadowy beasts.

Ilvane exclaims, "No no!"

Sabitor blinks.

Alyxandrah glances at you.

Solistam exclaims, "Battle on, Thurfel!"

Arimantis says, "You can fight them.. I know you can"

You say, "Ye are stronger than anything, m'lord."

You say, "I know this."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel fight!! Please don't give up!!! Please!!!"

Arimantis says, "We have to get in there.."

Junis fidgets.

(Sabitor shifts around uncomfortably, unsure what to do.)

Ilvane says, "If you stay Iscikella.."

Sabitor asks, "Can we?"

Sabitor glances at Arimantis.

Ilvane exclaims, "Please, go..please!"

Sabitor asks, "Is there a way in?"

Iscikella says, "Indeed, we are certainly stronger than the likes of that!"

Alyxandrah says, "My lady, you only make them stronger..."

Alyxandrah says, "Please..."

You ask, "We?"

Alyxandrah gazes at you with a look of utter sorrow in her eyes.

Sabitor peers quizzically at you.

Solistam exclaims, "We have to get in! We have to help him!"

You try to figure out how to ignore yourself.

Arimantis exclaims, "Thurfel.. you have to help us get in!"

Alyxandrah says, "Thurfel, please dunn give up...."

You say, "There is no we."

Sabitor says, "Control yourself, Iscikella."

Ilvane asks, "Dear Ronan..please..Iscikella..don't you see your presence will only harm him?"

Junis wrings his hands.

Alyxandrah shifts her eyes to you.

Solistam says, "We is whoever is with me in helping him, Iscikella."

Alyxandrah says, "Junis.."

Junis exclaims, "I'm not doin anythin!"

A sceptre-like shape points outward from inside the barrier, and the barrier glows an angry crimson for a long moment.

Solistam says, "And if you dont wish to include yerself, be silent with yer dispariging comments."

You say, "No, not what I meant..."

Sabitor blinks.

You sigh softly.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel! Fight!"

Sabitor frowns.

Arimantis exclaims, "You can do it!"

Alyxandrah says, "You can do it! I beg you please..."

(Ilvane reaches out to the mist)

You say, "I was not talking to ye, Solistam."

Ilvane exclaims, "Fight it!"

Arimantis says, "You made this mist.. you ca break it"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel...fight them!"

Arimantis squints at a pulsating mist.

Numerous shapes rain down upon the figure from above, knocking him to the ground, the mist ceases its violent motion.

Ilvane exclaims, "Oh no!"

Arimantis beams!

Junis gazes heavenward.

Alyxandrah closes her eyes for a moment.

You say, "Ye can fight anything..."

Arimantis coughs.

Ilvane closes her eyes for a moment.

Solistam blinks.

You say, "Ye showed me that..."

Alyxandrah weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

Solistam sighs.

Arimantis sighs.

Sabitor asks, "What... what are we going to do?"

Ilvane says, "Oh dear gods.."

Solistam says, "Well we cant just sit here"

Lord Blizzerdd just arrived.

Solistam nods to Blizzerdd.

Sabitor gulps.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "My lady don't you see what your presence does?!"

Arimantis squints at a pulsating mist.

Sabitor frowns.

Alyxandrah says, "They are stronger for you being here..."

The chamber within the mist explodes with color, shadows and shards of blackness scattering in all directions. The barrier bends, but does not drop.

Arimantis says, "We have to get in there.."

Ilvane removes a tiny teal crocodile hanging from a crimson spidersilk thread from in her wire pet cage.

Arimantis blinks.

Ilvane put a small silver wire pet cage in her black silk cloak.

You exclaim, "The barrier is falling!"

Solistam exclaims, "Its breaking!"

Sabitor asks, "Do we want to be here if the barrier drops?"

Sabitor shudders.

Blizzerdd stands in front of you.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Don't give up, Thurfel!!!"

Alyxandrah says, "We prepare for battle..."

Solistam says, "We want to call help"

Solistam exclaims, "To arms!"

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "Honestly, I'm very confused."

Alyxandrah whispers, "I'm sorry...you know he is my first concern. Are you ready in case he is hurt?"

Alyxandrah peers quizzically at you.

You nod to Alyxandrah.

Alyxandrah nods.

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Junis thinking, "Warriors of voln, to the mist in Thurfel's keep, lest the evil escape!"

Alyxandrah hugs you.

Iscikella says "He's not going to escape, I don't know why he's even bothering."

Ilvane leans back.

Alyxandrah blinks.

Ilvane glances at you.

Alyxandrah clasps her hand over her mouth.

Arimantis glances at you.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at you.

Solistam says, "For Balzakianoafishness, The Oafish Horde, Icemule, and all of Elanthia, I set my life upon this coming battle."

Sabitor peers quizzically at you.

You say, "He will escape, foolish self-pitying entity."

Solistam says, "Twas de entity"

Alyxandrah says, "Thurfel....dunn give up...."

Blizzerdd tightens his grip on his vultite waraxe.

Iscikella's body is racked in agony.

Solistam tightens his grip on his laen falchion.

Alyxandrah blinks.

You gasp.

A pained expression crosses Ilvane's face.

Solistam exclaims, "Isci!"

Arimantis says, "I know you are strong enough Thurfel.."

Blizzerdd just tried to pull you towards him!

Ilvane exclaims, "Leave her alone!"

Junis rubs you gently.

You exclaim, "Yes, ye may punish me! But I'm right, entity!"

You say, "Ye are a self-pitying weakling."

(Iscikella cries out in pain.)

Junis exclaims, "Thas right, show it whos in controll Iscikella!"

Ilvane exclaims, "Thurfel for Iscikella, fight!"

Blizzerdd glares.

Ilvane exclaims, "Don't you see what they are doing to her? Get out here and help her!"

Arimantis says, "You are the only one who can stop this.. please fight"

Alyxandrah slowly empties her lungs.

Sabitor raises an eyebrow.

Sabitor frowns.

Ilvane says, "Be strong Thurfel, please.."

You lean on Blizzerdd.

Ilvane says, "For Iscikella."

You slowly and deliberately empty your filled lungs.

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Junis thinking, "I meant warriors of voln only as a figure of speech, all members of our order are welcome to come to the defence"

Solistam says, "And for your home."

Arimantis fidgets.

Sabitor says, "Stay in control, Iscikella, I know you're stronger than that."

Sabitor glances at you.

You exclaim, "Go back to yer death, spirit! Ye do not belong in me! Ye belong in the tomb!"

You tighten your grip on your violet vultite falchion.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel!"

Ilvane nods to you.

Alyxandrah says, "Don't give up..."

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Junis thinking, "Thurfels keep, through the seashells, and north"

Alyxandrah says, "I'm begging you...."

Alyxandrah says, "Please."

Alyxandrah holds back her tears, her eyes glistening with pain.

Ilvane says, "Junis."

Ilvane shakes her head.

Junis says, "We must be prepared"

The Symbol of Thought begins to burn in your mind and you hear Angelrise thinking, "what's going on down there anyhow?"

Solistam nods to Junis.

Something massive covers the chamber beyond the mist in dark shadows.

Ilvane says, "Don't call people here, it's going to make more danger."

Alyxandrah bites her lip.

Blizzerdd says, "Let it come."

Ilvane exclaims, "Do you want everyone dead!"

Junis says, "If Thurfel breaks the barrier without defeating all of whatever is back there"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel! Fight!!"

You exclaim, "Thurfel is stronger then ye are, weakling entity! Ye know that! Ye admitted it!"

Junis says, "Everyone will die if we dont stop it here"

You exclaim, "So go cower where ye belong!"

Sabitor glances at Junis.

Solistam says, "We must stop it here."

Solistam says, "I am with Junis."

Sabitor says, "Everyone will die anyway."

Alyxandrah says, "If for anything....the smallest thing...me."

Ilvane shakes her head.

Arimantis says, "He needs his supporters here... not a horde of those who don't want to help.."

Sabitor says, "We are no match for whatever holds Lord Thurfel captive."

Ilvane says, "Bringing everyone here is foolish."

Sabitor says, "No match physically, that is."

Sabitor frowns.

The barrier ripples and bends.

(Iscikella leans heavily against Blizzerdd, in obvious pain.)

Sabitor blinks.

Blizzerdd whispers, "Where is RIlls?"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Fight!!"

Ilvane leans back.

Sabitor begins to twitch.

Solistam exclaims, "Its breaking more!"

Blizzerdd just gave you a smooch.

You whisper quietly to Blizzerdd, "I don't know."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel please....you can do it!!"

Arimantis says, "You can do it.. I know you can.."

Ilvane says, "If you need..take this.."

A massive thud sounds throughout the room.

Ilvane indicates her teal crocodile with a smile.

Sabitor blinks.

You exclaim, "BREAK! BREAK!"

Junis gulps.

You tighten your grip on your violet vultite falchion.

Sabitor glares at you.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "You're almost there! Don't give up!!!"

Sabitor exclaims, "Shut your mouth, Iscikella!"

Sabitor begins to twitch.

You glance at Sabitor.

Solistam exclaims, "Courage, Sir Thurfel! Fight it with the courage you show to be true within your heart!"

The figure drops again to the ground, clearly sagging with little resistance.

Alyxandrah exclaims, "NO!!!"

You whisper quietly to Sabitor, "I want the barrier to set him free."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel please fight! Don't give up!"

Sabitor glances at you.

Arimantis exclaims, "Thurfel.. be strong!"

Sabitor furrows his brow.

You exclaim, "M'lord, fight!"

You exclaim, "I am fighting!"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "You can beat them! You are stronger!!"

Sabitor whispers, "And kill us all?"

You exclaim, "Ye must fight!"

You whisper quietly to Sabitor, "I think is the only way he has to get out."

Something grasps the neck of the small figure and lifts it up, the light beyond making visibility difficult.

Sabitor cringes.

Alyxandrah gasps.

Arimantis exclaims, "They even said it.. you are the strongest.. you can fight!"

Solistam growls ferociously!

You blink.

Ilvane blinks.

You exclaim, "The strongest!"

You say, "Show them."

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel...don't let them win!"

You furrow up your face and wince.

You hear Witlass yell, "tentass"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Please don't let them win!!!!"

(Iscikella grasps her abdomen.)

Sabitor yells, "Grawg!"

Alyxandrah yells, "Witlass!"

Ilvane gazes heavenward.

You hear Witlass yell, "ya ain't Tentass!"

You belt out, "Witlass!"

You hear Witlass yell, "shush!"

Ilvane yells, "Grawg over here!"

Alyxandrah giggles.

Junis chuckles.

Arimantis yells, "Witlass.. where are you!"

Solistam yells, "To battle!"

You hear Witlass yell, "I'm here!"

Whatever was grasping the figure beyond the barrier drops it to the ground.

You belt out, "Where are ye, Grawg!"

You hear Witlass yell, "right here!"

Ilvane yells, "Grawg we need you!"

Arimantis yells, "yer master needs help!"

Witlass just arrived.

Witlass yells, "now I'm here!"

Arimantis just tried to pull Witlass towards him!

Ilvane just tried to pull Witlass towards her!

You blink at Witlass.

Solistam turns towards Witlass and renders a sharp salute with his laen falchion.

Ilvane exclaims, "Your master!"

Alyxandrah beams happily at Witlass!

The hallways begin to shake and quiver.

Ilvane exclaims, "He needs you!"

Sabitor blinks.

Witlass blinks.

You ask, "Grawg, this mist, what is it?"

Alyxandrah gasps.

Arimantis says, "Grawg.. in the mist.."

You ask, "What binds it?"

Witlass says, "hay waitaminnit"

You exclaim, "Thurfel needs help!"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel fight!!"

Arimantis says, "He needs us"

(Iscikella grasps her abdomen in agony.)

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Fight...please!"

Witlass says, "dats whut Tentass sez too"

Alyxandrah says, "Dunn give up..."

Witlass nods to you.

Ilvane says, "He is there.."

Alyxandrah shifts her eyes to you.

Witlass says, "sez Grawg need lossa help too"

(Blizzerdd holds Iscikella upright.)

(Ilvane points to the mist)

Arimantis says, "The council members.. they have him in the mist.."

Alyxandrah asks, "Witlass, how do we get him out of the mist?"

Arimantis says, "You can do the helping this time"

You ask, "Witlass, do ye know what this mist is?"

Arimantis nods to Witlass.

Alyxandrah asks, "How can we help him?"

What looks like a staff or sceptre is raised, crimson color flowing from it toward the massive behemoth.

You say, "Grawg."

Witlass says, "usually afore he tries ta bonk me"

You say, "I am sorry. My head..."

Sabitor nods.

Solistam asks, "How do we get in?"

Ilvane gasps.

Alyxandrah says, "Thurfel...."

Witlass asks, "door?"

Blizzerdd asks, "Is the mist affected by wind?"

Witlass peers quizzically at Solistam.

Solistam says, "We have to get in there NOW"

Alyxandrah says, "You can do it."

Arimantis asks, "Can you get us in?"

You point at a pulsating mist.

Alyxandrah smiles softly.

You exclaim, "Look a staff!"

Witlass says, "mebbe the liberry"

Sabitor says, "I think... I think he'll make it."

You exclaim, "A staff!"

Ilvane nods to you.

Witlass works his fingers under his tin pot and scratches his head.

You exclaim, "Library!"

Witlass yells, "tentass!"

You ask, "Where is the library?"

Sabitor peers quizzically at you.

Ilvane exclaims, "And a crimson behemoth!"

Arimantis exclaims, "Where is the library!"

Witlass works his fingers under his tin pot and scratches his head.

Witlass says, "errm"

Witlass says, "dunno"

The behemoth crumbles to an unrecognizeable pile, but the figure wielding the staff collapses as well.

Arimantis stares off into space.

Sabitor blinks.

Alyxandrah gasps.

Alyxandrah says, "Thurfel..."

Sabitor says, "He's down."

Alyxandrah bites her lip.

Ilvane says, "No.."

Arimantis exclaims, "You see.. he needs us!"

Alyxandrah glances at Sabitor.

Witlass says, "ask Tentass"

Sabitor bites his lip.

Solistam says, "He needs us now"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel get up!!"

Something begins to drag the figure off.

Witlass says, "he knows where da liberry is"

Kamalot cringes.

Arimantis just tried to pull Witlass towards him!

Alyxandrah exclaims, "No!!"

Ilvane says, "No..no.."

Solistam exclaims, "Get up blast you! Fight it!!"

You exclaim, "He killed whatever it was though!"

Arimantis asks, "Can't you help?"

You exclaim, "My lord, fight!"

Ilvane ducks behind her blue shield.

You exclaim, "Fight!"

Alyxandrah exclaims, "Thurfel FIGHT!"

Witlass says, "yer yellin at a cloud"

Sabitor glances at Witlass.

(Iscikella bends over in agony.)

Witlass says, "Tentass usedta tell Grawg dat stoopid"

Arimantis says, "We have to get inside the cloud"

You exclaim, "Fight, please!"

Ilvane asks, "Don't you see those shapes?"

Ilvane glances at Witlass.

Witlass peers quizzically at Ilvane.

Witlass shakes his head.

Arimantis asks, "Can you get us inside the big cloud?"

Sabitor mutters something about blind.

The chamber beyond the mist empties, the figure helplessly dragged off into the darkness.

Solistam asks, "Shiny cloud?"

Ilvane says, "They are beating something in there.."

Ilvane sobs.

Witlass says, "tentass sez ta see shapes in da cloud iz fer stoopids"

You exclaim, "NO!"

Alyxandrah weeps softly, quiet tears falling from her eyes.

You flail your arms about.

You exclaim, "NO!"

Solistam exclaims, "Blast!"

Witlass says, "Grawg liketa see cows in da clouds tho"

Solistam exclaims, "We failed!"

Sabitor frowns.

Ilvane flails her arms about.

Witlass smiles.

(Iscikella pounds her fists against Blizz's chest in frustration.)

Ilvane says, "Grawg please.."

Ilvane says, "You aren't crazy.."

Ilvane just tried to pull Witlass towards her!

Alyxandrah gazes at Silon with a look of utter sorrow in her eyes.

Ilvane exclaims, "We need your help!"

You say, "Grawg, yer master needs help."

Witlass says, "hokay"

Blizzerdd whispers, "should I breeze this place?"

Witlass nods to you.

(Solistam charges off into the mist, trying vainly to get inside)

Arimantis asks, "If there was candy in the cloud.. could ya get in?"

Arimantis fidgets.

Ilvane says, "Please if you know how to get inside.."

Sabitor glances at Arimantis.

Sabitor grunts. How charming.

Witlass works his fingers under his tin pot and scratches his head.

You say, "We don't know how. We need to understand how."

Ilvane says, "Iscikella you just can't."

Ilvane looks over at you and shakes her head.

Witlass asks, "now why would grawg wanna be inna cloud?"

Iscikella says "I doubt we'll see him again."

Witlass says, "can't see nuttin"

Arimantis says, "Cause there is candy in there"

Arimantis nods.

Ilvane blinks at you.

You clasp a hand over your mouth.

You notice a vein pulsing in Blizzerdd's forehead.

Sabitor gazes heavenward.

Witlass says, "silly"

Arimantis says, "There is.."

Arimantis nods.

Witlass says, "there's silver inside"

You exclaim, "quiet, weakling entity!"

Ilvane says, "That entity inside of her makes her talk.."

Witlass pokes Arimantis in the ribs.

Witlass says, "not candy"

You ask, "Grawg, where is Trentas?"

Angelrise gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Arimantis says, "Alrighty then.. I gots candy if you can get us in.."

You say, "Where is the library."

Witlass says, "inna liberry"

Tristes asks, "woah, so what's going on here?"

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

Khaitiff's group just arrived.

Alyxandrah stares off into space.

You ask, "Where is that?"

Witlass says, "where da books are"

You ask, "Please?"

Witlass smiles.

Angelrise says, "heh"

Ilvane says, "There is nothing here."

Iscikella runs a finger along Witlass' shoulder. "Perhaps we'll give you this island when we are done with your master."

Alyxandrah blinks.

Sabitor blinks.

Arimantis stares at you.

Ilvane gasps.

Witlass blinks.

Angelrise blinks.

Blizzerdd gawks at you.

Witlass peers quizzically at you.

Angelrise says, "ack"

Solistam says, "Blastid entity"

Alyxandrah moves to stand in front of Witlass.

Witlass says, "umm"

You flail your arms about.

You flail your arms about.

Angelrise asks, "she possesed again?"

Arimantis says, "Don listen to her Grawg.."

Ilvane says, "She is."

You exclaim, "Weakling entity, stop!"

Angelrise says, "oh jees"

Angelrise stares off into space.

Witlass just opened a heavy backpack.

Solistam asks, "What in blazes?"

Arimantis says, "As I was sayin.. I gots candy.. if you can help"

Witlass put a hard cherry candy in his heavy backpack.

Witlass removes a stuffed toy bobcat kitten from in his heavy backpack.

Arimantis taps a thin silver filigree tin.

Ilvane glances at you.

Witlass says, "hokay cow"

Sabitor groans at Witlass.

You cock your head at Ilvane.

Witlass says, "pertect Grawg"

Arimantis asks, "Can the cow get in?"

Arimantis stares off into space.

Ilvane exclaims, "Stop that!"

Ilvane flails her arms about.

Witlass says, "from da nutty isci"

Witlass sticks out his tongue.

Alyxandrah giggles.

Arimantis coughs.

Alyxandrah clasps her hand over her mouth.

You say, "Grawg, we need a book."

Witlass asks, "ya bonk yer hed or sumpin?"

Witlass peers quizzically at you.

You nod to Witlass.

You say, "Aye, I did."

You say, "A mean entity bonked my head."

You say, "And now wants to hurt yer master."

Junis asks, "Witlass... I mean Grawg, do you know how to get to the library?"

Witlass says, "well go to da liberry"

Sabitor says, "Book, eh."

Witlass looks over at Junis and shakes his head.

You say, "We need to know its name, Grawg."

Sabitor rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Ilvane says, "Library."

Witlass says, "Tentass bring book ta Grawg"

You say, "And it's in a book."

Witlass smiles.

Arimantis stares at Witlass.

Sabitor raises an eyebrow in Witlass's direction.

Arimantis asks, "You have a book?"

Junis asks, "Do you still have the book?"

Alyxandrah asks, "Do you have the book?"

Alyxandrah peers quizzically at Witlass.

You ask, "Ye have a book, Grawg?"

Sabitor says, "Doubtful."

Sabitor slaps himself on the forehead.

Witlass says, "pitchers innit"

You ask, "May we see is?"

Solistam sighs.

Witlass points at a stuffed toy bobcat kitten.

Witlass says, "hazza cow too"

Alyxandrah blinks.

Blizzerdd asks, "Pictures of whats?"

Witlass says, "cows"

Arimantis says, "I will trade ya.. candy for that book"

A white cat prances into the room.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at Witlass.

Witlass says, "Tentass hazzit"

Witlass says, "keeps it in da liberry"

Ilvane sighs.

Junis says, "Wheres Trentas"

Arimantis says, "We have to find Trentas then.."

Witlass chuckles.

You ask, "And will Trentas let us see the library, Grawg?"

Blizzerdd says, "Show us."

Witlass says, "sillies - he's inna liberry"

You ask, "So we can get the book?"

Junis gazes heavenward.

Ilvane blinks at Alyxandrah.

Witlass says, "me dunno where dat is tho"

Sabitor says, "And you don't know where that is."

Sabitor nods to Witlass.

Sabitor gazes heavenward.

You ask, "Ye get lost trying to find it ye mean?"

You cock your head at Witlass.

Witlass asks, "lookin fer something?"

Solistam blinks.

Blizzerdd asks, "Do you know of a room that you are not supposed to go in?"
