***END NOTE***

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

Merylla quietly asks, "What ritual is that?"

Perigourd bows to Thurfel.

Casamilla exclaims, "First shopping!"

Thurfel taps the tip of his serpentine staff on the ground.

Opalina hugs Alyxandrah.

Sheka nods to Opalina.

Thurfel whispers, "3 or so"

Sheka says, "Hello Shrieker"

Casamilla says, "Good lord, hide that thang."

Thurfel says, "at that time"

Alyxandrah whispers, "You look beautiful."

You nod to Thurfel.

Sheka asks, "And then?"

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "Thank ye!"

Angelnero smiles at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "the mystical energies from the staff"

Angelnero bows to Thurfel.

Dangir takes a bite of his tender lobster.

Casamilla says, "Yer scarin' me, you shouldan't just carry it around."

Casamilla frowns.

Thurfel says, "will form a vortex of sorts"

Thurfel asks, "and who would take it from me?"

Dalboz waggles his fingers mystically. Ooh...impressive.

Ashya rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Casamilla says, "Well, not I but still..."

Sheka smiles softly to herself.

Thurfel says, "the vortex"

Thurfel says, "will swirl outward"

Ashya winces.

Thurfel says, "the liches will be unable to hide"

Sheka kicks Dalboz!

Sheka gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Skyfawn softly asks, "will it take us to?"

Casamilla frets.

Thurfel says, "the energy travels across the plane of spirits"

Angelnero sternly asks, "where will all the shopping take place?"

Dalboz deeply says, "ow"

Casamilla paces back and forth.

Vonalin asks, "Will it be dangerous to people who are non-living-impaired?"

Thurfel says, "and will find them"

Krisilynd warmly asks, "will it suck anything else in?"

Skyfawn softly asks, "will it take us to?"

Casamilla says, "I will be satisfied when I see it in place, and not before."

Thurfel says, "no, you are not liches"

Alyxandrah softly asks, "Will it hurt them? Will this be painful for Gavrail? Please?"

Alyxandrah peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "you have no fear"

Casamilla bites her lip.

Krisilynd warmly says, "I have plenty of fear"

Thurfel says, "Frankly, I don't know if it would be painful or not"

Ashya cowers.

Thurfel says, "that is an interesting question"

Ashya whimpers.

Thurfel says, "hmm"

Sheka cackles!

You say, "Will the force have a chance of imploding, my lord? I only ask because of the relic so long ago... imploding the room as it did."

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Casamilla says, "There's always that chance, I would think."

Casamilla frets.

Krisilynd raises an eyebrow.

Aulus nods to Casamilla.

Perigourd whispers, "is he attempting it right away?"

Thurfel says, "I would hope not"

Aulus quietly says, "look at the binding of the mana pool at the wizards guild for instance"

Aulus shudders.

Thurfel says, "To be honest"

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "No, not for about three hours."

Casamilla asks, "Oh dear, Must I always be so nervous?"

Thurfel says, "since I would not wish to put any in harms way that do not wish to risk it"

Casamilla bites her lip.

Sabitor shrugs.

Krisilynd warmly says, "might be interesting to ride a vortex"

Ashya says, "Im getting scared"

Ashya bites her lip.

Thurfel says, "there is always the chance of risk when you are speaking of magical artifacts"

Sheka glances at Ashya.

Sheka smirks.

You nod to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "however"

You say, "Aye."

Ashya mutters under her breath.

Thurfel says, "my sages assure me"

Thurfel says, "the risk is minimal"

Hazan smirks.

You say, "I definitely want to see the liches' hold on this world ended."

Iscikella gets a strange feeling of premonition, but premonition of what, it is impossible to say, and the feeling is swiftly gone.

Thurfel says, "after the merchants have had the chance to visit"

Merylla quietly asks, "And what will occur with this vortex?"

You nod to Thurfel.

Casamilla says, "What will we do meanwhile."

Adalie asks, "What time in Elven?"

Casamilla ponders.

Thurfel says, "and do some work for all of you"

Thurfel asks, "and what is your name?"

Kithus melodically says, "Hopefully some impressive names"

Drektor gobbles down a big bite of his tender lobster.

Dharren says, "My name is Dharren and thats Laythzerlinx"

Casamilla raises an eyebrow.

Dharren points east.

Krefik makes a gobbling sound.

Dharren nods to Thurfel.

Sheka says, "How rude."

Sepher says, "Evil needs no reason."

Thurfel says, "blech, tarts"

Landrai beams happily at Kithus!

Sheka turns away from Dharren, ignoring him.

Sepher snickers.

Dharren says, "We all know your plot! To overthrow the great King of Icemule"

Dharren nods to Thurfel.

Casamilla waves a hand at Dharren, dismissing him indifferently.

You chuckle at Thurfel.

Ashya asks, "King?"

You wink at Thurfel.

Dharren asks, "Queen?"

Ashya says, "since when did we have a king"

Shaelethe gives Ashya a good pinch!

Aulus quietly says, "well if im not mistaken,he did try to kill us all once before.."

You say, "That I will gladly watch."

Sepher leans on Sheka.

Shaelethe says, "ooh. Imprisonment. My favourite party game."

Thurfel says, "we can begin the process of adding a library to the wizards guild"

Thurfel says, "if you wish to ask questions"

Ashya says, "oh"

Casamilla squints.

Belthania laughs!

Sheka raises an eyebrow.

Thurfel says, "there are no secrets here"

Dharren reaches out and holds Surachi's hand.

Dharren nods.

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Do ye like my outfit, m'lord? I had the various pieces made over the past year or more hoping for just such an occasion to wear it."

Dharren says, "Too many secrets"

Dharren mutters insane.

Sheka snickers.

Alanamarie asks, "can we start adding things like skills to the Cleric Guild?"

Shaelethe says, "I suppose the wizards will hoard those books and not let the other professions read them."

Alyxandrah softly says, "Um, sorcerer's guild first. I pay for no reason."

Friendlly asks, "why a wizard guild library?"

Alyxandrah folds her arms over her chest.

Casamilla says, "Well, they are probably the best at reading...ermmm maybe."

Dharren peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Rongari says, "heh, yeah sis as soon as the footpads start rteaching lock mastery"

Casamilla grins.

Sheka says, "Hello in the shadows."

Asmodea asks, "Because he's a wizard?"

Alanamarie says, "heh i pay the cleric guild fer nothin" Krisilynd warmly says, "right"

Thurfel says, "because I trust the wizards to be more sage in handling knowledge then the sorcerors"

Dangir nods to Thurfel.

Thurfel whispers, "tis gorgeous milady"

Sepher says, "Yeah, The mages already know the cantrip skill."

Sepher starts chortling.

Kithus melodically says, "Alyxandrah dear you must give the wizards something to make up for how weak they are compared to sorcerers"

Kithus winks and flashes a sly grin.

You smile at Thurfel.

Alyxandrah grins at Kithus.

Ashya mumbles something that you don't quite catch.

Asmodea asks, "Why would a wizard set up a library in the sorcerer's guild?"

Shaelethe hisses at Thurfel.

Goldtree beams happily at Thurfel!

Zutzut folds his arms over his chest.

Sepher says, "As stupid as it looks."

Ashya sniffs.

Sepher chuckles.

Huxton says, "everyone has their opinion"

Sheka cocks her head at Shaelethe.

Huxton nods.

Casamilla rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Thurfel says, "Wizards tend to study"

Shaelethe says, "sage schmage."

Thurfel says, "and build"

Taylir laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

Thurfel says, "Sorcerors simply destroy"

Dharren frowns at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "mind you"

Ivellis smiles at Thurfel.

Landrai softly says, "sorcerers have not time they tend to flirt"

Friendlly says, "well see mr Thurfel if it wasnt for us clerics and empaths you wizards never would live long enough to read so we shoud have something for empaths and clerics first"

Thurfel says, "that's a bit of a generality"

Alyxandrah softly says, "And we're very good at it too."

Landrai nods to Kithus.

Alyxandrah grins at Thurfel.

Dharren looks over at Thurfel and shakes his head.

You say, "Well, not everybody memorizes what they study like ye do, m'lord, wizard or nae."

Dharren cackles insanely, wild-eyed and drooling.

Casamilla exclaims, "And build rhymes with guild so therefore...!"

Thurfel says, "well"

You chuckle at Thurfel.

Shaelethe says, "hmph. Nothing wrong with a good bit of wanton destruction."

Thurfel says, "I am not a cleric"

Thurfel says, "or an empath"

Casamilla beams!

Friendlly says, "we know"

Dharren nods to Thurfel.

Kithus melodically says, "So the plan is, since there are no secrets here, to let the wizards build a library, destroy it, and take their books"

Thurfel says, "thus it makes more sense to put the books in the wizards guild"

Minirova nods to Thurfel in greeting.

Huxton says, "destroying means knowledge to me"

Kithus melodically says, "It saves the sorcerers guild time and money"

Thurfel begins chuckling at Dharren.

Ashya turns an inquisitive ear towards Thurfel.

Casamilla says, "Because the poor dears are so lacking maybe..."

Antinymous merrily says, "I say we've already got a perfectly good library over in the Silvermule. The brandy's to die for."

Illumino says, "whoooo"

Thurfel says, "who among you wishes to recharge an item, my prices will be fair"

You ask, "Are the merchants setting up tents on the beach, m'lord? That the plan?"

Thurfel says, "one item per person"

Sepher says, "It must be a pleasure to meet me."

Krisilynd warmly says, "well, I certainly know what a sorcerer's favorite whine is."

Sepher nods to Minirova.

Minirova roars at Kimmurial!

Sepher starts chortling.

Minirova bows to Sepher.

Alyxandrah begins chuckling at Sepher.

Dharren says, "Nothing to recharge here"

Alyxandrah laughs!

Minirova says, "Sepher"

Dharren rummages around in his pockets.

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Can ye recharge scrolls as well?"

Kithus melodically says, "I have an item to charge"

Sepher starts chortling.

Aulus quietly asks, "thurfel,have the merchants arrived?"

Aulus peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel looks over at you and shakes his head.

Antinymous merrily says, "But if wizards want their own library I suppose that's just dandy."

Minirova asks, "Did you get your head cut off?"

Minirova peers quizzically at Sepher.

Opalina warmly asks, "Would there be anyone who'd like to see you fail and might try and stop you from completing this task Thurfel?"

Thurfel says, "none as of yet"

You snap your fingers.

Sepher says, "See? He even knows my name."

Thurfel says, "they will announce their arrival"

Adalie asks, "Will the monkeys and such still be running about?"

Sepher says, "It's right here."

Ashya cackles!

Sheka snickers.

Thurfel says, "I am sure many misguided folks may try Opalina"

Minirova asks, "Is there a tattoo merchant?"

Ashya blinks.

Sheka says, "Misguided....."

Sheka glances at you.

Alyxandrah giggles.

Sheka smirks.

Thurfel says, "I do not know which merchants may arrive"

You say, "Not me, Sheka."

Drektor folds his arms over his chest.

You chuckle.

Sheka cackles!

Casamilla asks, "Are there any yet?"

Thurfel says, "at least a half dozen according to the merchants guild"

Minirova snaps his fingers.

Ashya exclaims, "Merchant of doom!"

You say, "Ye are the only misguided one I know."

Ashya nods to Thurfel.

Krisilynd warmly says, "Thurfel, you have been most kind to allow us into your home. Please forgive the whining."

You nod to Sheka.

Alyxandrah whispers, "Gavrail has been quiet..."

Ganjyn exclaims, "They're going to be selling meteor swarms by the dozen!"

Krisilynd rolls her eyes.

Thurfel says, "you are always welcome in my home"

You nod to Alyxandrah.

Yactaevia says, "looks like an office"

Dharren says, "Will we be served tea? It's almost tea time"

Ashya chuckles.

Casamilla giggles.

Dharren nods to Thurfel.

Dharren cackles insanely, wild-eyed and drooling.

Kithus melodically says, "She's not misguided, she's rude and arrogant"

Opalina whispers, "have you discovered who the shadow's are?"

Thurfel says, "this is just an office"

Thurfel says, "my home is the keep"

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "Aye, she has."

Ashya grins.

Drektor clasps his hand over a razor sharp bodkin.

Casamilla says, "There's wine, although the glasses are tiny."

Ahira says, "Got any snakcs"

Casamilla sways back and forth.

Minirova asks, "With all the critters?"

Minirova peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Sheka stares off into space.

Ahira grins stupidly.

Ashya rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Thurfel says, "where my illustrious sentries oh so poorly stand guard"

Krisilynd warmly says, "and plenty of whine, too"

You whisper quietly to Opalina, "The shadows who followed me were the liches."

Minirova asks, "Don't the dogs try to eat ya?"

Alyxandrah begins chuckling at Thurfel.

Friendlly says, "lets all go over to Thurfel's place and have a party"

Ashya says, "ahh"

Dharren peers quizzically at Demiloa.

Lacor snickers.

Thurfel says, "yes, the dogs aren't friendly"

Ashya asks, "that is yer home?"

Ashya rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Casamilla squints.

Landrai softly says, "do you have a hot tub"

Thurfel says, "but they clearly don't bite hard enough"

Minirova cackles!

Dharren says, "Your wall guardians are quite rude"

Adalie says, "I greatly enjoy taking your sentries for everything they're worth"

Adalie grins at Thurfel.

You say, "Well, guard dogs seldom are trained to be friendly."

Thurfel says, "there is a tub of strawberry filling"

Ahira says, "Are there going to be snacks"

Thurfel says, "it's quite interesting"

Landrai softly says, "oooo"

Minirova exclaims, "Aye, they can't even tie their own shoes!"

Ahira moves to stand in front of Thurfel.

Minirova points at some elven tracking boots.

Thurfel says, "there are snacks on the table outside"

Ahira says, "Where's that at"

Minirova exclaims, "I kin tie my shoes!"

Thurfel says, "they aren't that bad"

Aulus and Thurfel shake hands.

Ashya rubs her chin thoughtfully.

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "I am happy this day has finally arrived, m'lord. The liches have made nothing but torment, and it will be a blessing to see it end."

Thurfel says, "they sort of glow in the dark though"

Adalie exclaims, "not that bad?!"

Iscikella is again assailed by that feeling of unidentifiable premonition, but again the feeling quickly fades.

Belnia asks, "Any chance the monkies, crabs and crocodiles could be caged for a few hours so the youngins can come down?"

Thurfel nods to you.

You ponder.

Kithus melodically says, "Go down to the cellar looking for wine and all you find is worms and spiders. You really must work on your duties as a host Thurfel"

Adalie says, "I ran the entire time i was down there..."

Thurfel says, "I have put a barrier up in several beach areas"

Thurfel says, "the youngsters should be safest near the castle path"

Ashya says, "ahh"

Minirova asks, "How ya do that?"

Adalie shivers.

Belnia chuckles.

Ashya says, "well u must have a snack"

Thurfel says, "hmm"

Thurfel says, "perhaps I could give the guards the day off"

Adalie nods to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "and allow folks to tour the keep"

Casamilla raises an eyebrow.

Selania shifts her weight.

Adalie says, "Would make looking around easier"

Minirova asks, "What spell dids ya use Thurfel?"

Kithus melodically says, "Come now Belnia I think he's taken a step down before today. At least burning Icemule was a needed and interesting activity"

Landrai softly says, "please do"

Femereff curtsies to Thurfel.

Krisilynd warmly says, "that would be lovely, and kind"

Thurfel says, "somebody will of course need to tell the few remaining to take a hike"

Thurfel says, "I shall be back"

Vonka beams!

Dharren says, "I think Thurfel was much more loveable when he was evil"

Thurfel says, "let me free the keep of creatures"

Thurfel says, "I shall be back in a few moments"

Sheka asks, "Including a certain Princess?"

Dharren says, "Come back as Evil Thurfel"

Sheka smirks.

Dharren nods to Thurfel.

Minirova peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Dharren cackles insanely, wild-eyed and drooling.

Casamilla says, "We will be her, I assure you."

Loveable says, "If I had a dime for every time I heard that line.."

Thurfel gestures at the floor.
Thurfel vanishes

Minirova applauds.

Krisilynd warmly says, "Dharren, you could take up where he left off."

Thurfel says, "I would ask that they go personally ask the guards and their pets to leave the keep for the afternoon"

Thurfel says, "let us know"

Sheka says, "Not you this time."

Sheka waves a hand at Morstanya, dismissing her indifferently.

Thurfel says, "so we can tour the keep."

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "I am very nervous about stalkers, m'lord, so please keep a guard on yerself."

Minirova says, "Ignore Sheka, she was raised badly"

Thurfel says, "I shall tell you the history of the keep"

Thurfel says, "no"

Thurfel says, "they shall be working on the beach"

Sheka asks, "The history?"

Tazk says, "ah"

Dharren looked like he was about ready to punch the portrait.

Landrai softly says, "ohh lovely a story"

Tazk asks, "When will they be arriving?"

Dharren says, "Allacakazam"

Alyxandrah softly says, "I can open a void for you, and if you'd just like to step through it...I'm sure you'll go all over the portrait."

Inexplicably, Dharren flings himself at a portrait.

Alyxandrah nods to Dharren.

Morstanya says, "merchants smerchants, lets hear how you built this monstrousity"

Minirova asks, "Thurfel, How did ya come by the Island, did ye discover it?"

Dharren nods to Alyxandrah.

Thurfel asks, "discover it?"

Inexplicably, Dharren flings himself at a portrait.
Inexplicably, Dharren flings himself at a portrait.

Thurfel smiles.

You say, "Oh, ye will guide us on the tour then? Then I will finally get to hear the end of the tale ye began so long ago about it."

Dharren grumbles.

You grin at Thurfel.

Aulus quietly asks, "he made it,no?"

Thurfel says, "nay, I created it"

Thurfel asks, "wonder what work they do?"

Thurfel says, "in any case"

Thurfel says, "The sea has always been here"

Casamilla says, "Since the beginning of time at least."

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Are ye going to give a tour of the keep then, m'lord. I am sorry, the noise makes it hard to hear a bit."

Thurfel nods to you.

Alyxandrah softly says, "I'd love to see one of those."

Sheka asks, "Aye?"

Vonka says, "Mebber we oughter bring a boat from Solhaven."

Thurfel says, "are not friendly"

Sheka raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Dharren scratches his head.

You say, "So ye always said, m'lord."

Morstanya asks, "so you know who they are now?"

You nod to Thurfel.

Vonka gawks at Thurfel.

Dalboz deeply asks, "which race might that be?"

Vonka asks, "Under de sea?"

Nithili says, "Another race..."

Sepher asks, "Underneath the sea?"

Thurfel asks, "I guess I could only describe them as merman?"

Alyxandrah softly says, "Perhaps we can send the Fury down and they can teach them how to become friendly."

You nod to Vonka.

Thurfel says, "they have the body of men"

Nithili blinks at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "but not"

Nithili asks, "Have you seen one?"

Casamilla raises an eyebrow.

Thurfel says, "only parts of one"

Vonka blinks.

Sheka stares off into space.

Casamilla snickers.

Thurfel says, "I have caverns below my keep"

Alyxandrah grins at Sheka.

Nithili says, "Which parts"

Morstanya asks, "so that's who's been raiding your keep occasionally perhaps?"

Sheka cackles!

You say, "And most unfriendly from what little is known." Thurfel says, "I have been trying to create an undersea port"

You nod.

Dharren says, "I bet its one of Thurfels failed experiments in attempting to create an army to destroy the world"

Shallimar deeply says, "aha"

Dharren cackles insanely, wild-eyed and drooling.

Nithili squints at Dharren.

Kithus melodically says, "I think the guards got the hint"

Thurfel says, "But they continually slay my workers"

Dracoblood quickly asks, "I'd heard whispers of corrupt sea elves, but I was told they were all extinct by now. What sort of ships would dock at such an undersea port?"

Alyxandrah softly asks, "Sheka, do you have a gag handy?"

Thurfel says, "and thwart my progress"

Kithus melodically says, "At the wrong end of a void"

Alyxandrah peers quizzically at Sheka.

Thurfel says, "it would appear with the right craftmanship"

Vonka says, "Sheka ain' talkin' much."

Thurfel says, "you can build a vessel"

Thurfel says, "that will travel beneath the water"

Sheka raises an eyebrow in Vonka's direction.

Thurfel says, "mind you"

Krisilynd gasps.

Vonka gawks at Thurfel.

Casamilla blinks.

Tazk asks, "Like the Juggernaut and dirt Thurfel?"

Thurfel says, "this information comes from gnomes"

Tazk peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Sheka says, "I will watch moreso today I think, Vonka."

Krisilynd warmly asks, "a vessel that goes under the water?"

Sheka nods to Vonka.

Alyxandrah mutters something about gnomes.

Thurfel says, "and I shudder to travel in anything of their creation"

Altasren says, "With enough spells, perhaps so."

Casamilla says, "That's a silly notion."

Alyxandrah softly says, "But tis an interesting concept."

Thurfel says, "but they claim it can be done"

Vonka nods to Thurfel.

Morstanya says, "there's plenty of people with enough hot air to keep it provided I'm sure"

Vonka rubs her chin thoughtfully.

Vonka says, "Mebber...."

Sraven smiles at Thurfel.

(Vonka holds up her shell to her eyes.)

Thurfel says, "I would like to see what might be on them"

Aegin says, "Bah you can travel to islands easy enough on top of the water"

Vonka says, "Yer kin see righ' t'rough 'em."

You say, "So would I."

You laugh softly, trying to hide your amusement.

Sheka says, "Can float over on your frills and frothy clothing."

Minirova asks, "How do you ever get out of the bottom of your keep, where those critters are?"

Sheka smiles at you.

Alyxandrah softly says, "That's very true, Vonka."

Thurfel asks, "Do any of you know Arlyle?"

Nodyre begins chuckling at Sheka.

Alyxandrah grins at Vonka.

Ivellis asks, "how bout you think up a spell that lets you move and breathe under water like you were on land?"

Ivellis smiles.

Krisilynd warmly says, "not if the islands are in the bubles of caverns."

You nod to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "another merchant visiting to do their work"

Shallimar deeply says, "ah met him unce"

Morstanya sighs.

You grin at Thurfel.

Minirova shrugs.

Minirova snickers.

Dharren says, "It doesnt work"

Minirova shakes his head.

You say, "Well, some of the hangings in yer keep could use replaced, m'lord."

Dharren says, "I already got a running start on it"

Dharren nods to Minirova.

Minirova chuckles.

You say, "Some are a bit... tattered."

Alyxandrah softly says, "Well, I'll be back. I'm going to go see who's arrived."

You chuckle at Thurfel.

Ardwen says, "quite a crowd"

Inexplicably, Dharren flings himself at a portrait.

You nod to Vonka.

Atoyoz shifts her weight.

Vonka beams!

Minirova asks, "lichs?"

Casamilla exclaims, "Yes, in a few hours!"

Minirova peers quizzically at Vonka.

Dharren taps Thurfel, but before he can, flame envelopes his finger. Startled, he pulls his hand back before it becomes a cinder, but not before the damage is done.

Thurfel says, "they will never trouble you or anybody else ever again"

(Iscikella crosses her fingers.)

Sraven attempts to lean on Thurfel, but before she can, flame envelopes her elbow. Startled, she pulls her arm back before it becomes a cinder, but not before the damage is done.

Minirova asks, "Where are there lichs?"

Vonka curtsies to Thurfel.

Dharren says, "AHHH"

Sraven laughs!

Dharren says, "MY HAND"

Femereff asks, "Thurfel?"

Nodyre laughs!

Kadesha smiles at Vonka.

Thurfel asks, "yes?"

Nodyre deeply says, "morons"

Thurfel nods to Femereff.

Vonka says, "I never got a chance ter t'ank yer proper."

Dharren exclaims, "He is evil!"

Femereff asks, "is this yours?"

Femereff taps a tiny emerald serpent.

Vonka kicks Sheka!

Sothog quietly asks, "Interesting portrait. This is of you, sir?"

You say, "He's a firemage. Not wise to touch him."

You shake your head.

Beourne chortles softly at some secret joke.

Sheka cackles!

Sothog glances at Thurfel.

Dharren wails!

Casamilla says, "Ooh. Pretty."

Femereff shows Thurfel her emerald serpent.

Dharren says, "Thurfel you burned me"

Dharren frowns at Thurfel.

Sheka smiles cruelly at Vonka.

look portrait
The painting features a halfling in seaweed robes standing atop a granite pedestal. He holds a small mouse in one hand, and a kobold by the scruff of his neck in the other.

Sepher glances at Vonka.

Dharren says, "Not a good start as a good guy"

Altasren says, "You don't have to be evil to not want to be groped by strangers."

Krisilynd warmly says, "No, you burned yourself on him"

Thurfel says, "it looks like mine"

Thurfel says, "but you may keep it"

Kadesha moves to stand in front of Vonka.

Minirova asks, "Thurfel, is this a trap to kill us all so you can go back to bein evil?"

Minirova peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Sothog quietly says, "Just curious."

Kadesha glares at Sepher.

Lexbubba says, "dats what you get for leaning up against a firemage"

Sothog shrugs.

Vonka bites her lip.

Thurfel asks, "what is your name sir?"

Thurfel points at Minirova.

Sheka moves to stand in front of Sepher.

Dharren taps Minirova lightly on his shoulder.

Femereff ponders.

Aegin asks, "why tarry? Why not get rid of the liches once and for all right now?"

Sepher laughs!

Sheka cocks her head at Kadesha.

Dharren says, "I already asked him Minirova"

Minirova says, "Perigourd"

Minirova nods.

Perigourd peers quizzically at Minirova.

Grandevr snickers.

Perigourd asks, "what?"

Kadesha turns away from Sheka, ignoring her.

Silnoc confidently asks, "What's going on here?"

Vonka waves to Sepher.

Xephren warmly asks, "where is the festival?"

Squinch squeaks oddly.

Minirova says, "He asked what my name was Minirova"

Minirova nods to Perigourd.

Squinch reaches down and scratches his foot, taking a moment to groom the silky hair between his toes.

Dharren taps Thurfel, but before he can, flame envelopes his finger. Startled, he pulls his hand back before it becomes a cinder, but not before the damage is done.

Kadesha says, "insignificant worm, Sheka.. all ye are"

Dharren cackles insanely, wild-eyed and drooling.

Minirova says, "So i told him dat me name was Perigourd"

Dharren says, "Ouch"

Nodyre rolls his eyes.

You say, "Magical ceremonies are always needful of certain things. Perhaps the moon is needed. Or perhaps Hsark is still setting the holder."

Nodyre deeply says, "Dharren, grow up..."

Minirova says, "Only da truth"

Minirova nods.

Sheka begins chuckling at Kadesha.

Krisilynd warmly asks, "Dharren, are you stupid?"

Thurfel says, "no, I could do it now"

Dharren glances at Nodyre.

Thurfel says, "I simply wish the merchants to have fun"

Vonka beams happily at Thurfel!

Krisilynd peers quizzically at Dharren.

Nodyre waves a hand at Dharren, dismissing him indifferently.

Sothog quietly says, "Patience."

Nodyre deeply says, "right..."

Sothog smiles.

Dharren says, "Minirova is the only person who seems to remember Thurfel try and take over Icemule"

Vonka asks, "Acos de merchants gotter go wit' de lichs?"

Aegin asks, "and they could not have fun without liches?"

Nodyre chuckles.

Sraven says, "tiz a good day to battle"

Sraven nods to Thurfel.

Nodyre deeply says, "tried is the key word"

You look at Dharren and shake your head.

Nodyre winks at Dharren.

Ganjyn begins chuckling at Nodyre.

Cryheart says, "don't assume"

You hear the voice of Minirova say, "I'm not Minirova, I'm Perigourd"

Cryheart winks at Dharren.

Xephren sighs.

Azeareal asks, "Azeareal tried to take over Icemule and no one holds that against him. Why hold it against Thurfel?"

Grandevr patiently says, "That Perigourd... nothing but a troublemaker"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "There have been many fools these past days. And Gavrail has been instigating."

Drektor says, "let's wait by the food.."

Breager merrily says, "And I'm not breager, I'm really a little teapot"

Darckwizard says, "So true."

Illumino says, "Yea but Azeareal got stopped by the South Gate Guard"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "As well as harrassing with undead minions."

Illumino grins at Azeareal.

Sheka says, "You have far much more we hold against you."

Thurfel whispers, "Gavrail will no longer be an issue"

Sheka nods to Azeareal.

You nod to Thurfel.

You hear the voice of Minirova say, "I remember when the sum's kidnapped Kleyn"

Tazk asks, "Are the sentries cleared yet Thurfel?"

Thurfel says, "Sheka"

You hear the voice of Minirova say, "Dat was funny"

Sheka asks, "Aye?"

Thurfel says, "I do not know"

Sothog quietly asks, "So, this is the day, hm...?"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Some trust her though, m'lord."

Fiolai exclaims, "Oh, so many people!"

Fiolai gasps.

Ezana softly says, "whens the feastival going to start"

Ezana begins pouting.

Thurfel says, "you do realize there will be little bloodshed with this ritual"

Nodyre deeply asks, "have any of the shops opened yet, Thurfel?"

Thurfel says, "the festival has started"

Skyfawn softly asks, "thought you was going to send your critters off for the night?"

Sheka grins coldly, her eyes reflecting no emotion.

Thurfel says, "there are merchants working as we speak"

Tazk asks, "What ritual?"

Nodyre nods.

Tazk asks, "really?"

Sheka grins at Thurfel.

Tazk asks, "where?"

Ezana softly says, "where they be'"

Tazk asks, "Where thurfel?"

Thurfel says, "I am waiting for somebody to come back from the keep"

Squinch says, "knows how to clear a room he does"

Thurfel says, "to let me know if it is clear"

Alyxandrah softly says, "I was just there, my lord..."

Sothog quietly says, "That would be the 'banishing of the liches' ritual. I hope."

Tazk says, "ok"

Sothog coughs.

You nod to Sothog.

Sothog smiles at you.

Alyxandrah softly says, "The first floor seemed quiet to me. I'm not sure if the Fury is done with their task."

Thurfel says, "I did not clear the lower levels"

Azeareal asks, "we were given a task?"

Azeareal peers quizzically at Perigourd.

Perigourd gazes heavenward.

Thurfel says, "The vermin are much harder to control"

Minirova asks, "HOw do you get out of the lower levels?"

Minirova peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "but the keep itself should be clear"

Perigourd says, "you said the keep, not the celler"

Alyxandrah softly says, "I never go past the mist."

Sheka says, "I shall watch the mist to make sure none go through."

Alyxandrah grins at Thurfel.

Perigourd stares at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "Iscikella"

Perigourd says, "make up your mind"

Sepher chuckles.

Sheka smirks.

Thurfel says, "in your honor"

Thurfel says, "for those folks that wish to tour"

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Alyxandrah grins at Sheka.

Thurfel says, "would you lead us to the keep and through the keep"

Sheka says, "So I lied a bit."

Thurfel says, "I will narrate the rooms"

Thurfel joins your group.

Ezana softly says, "i want the vendors, wehre they""

Tazk says, "who do we join"

Ezana nods.

You say, "Surely, m'lord."

Thurfel says, "vendors are here"

You curtsy to Thurfel.

Sothog smiles.

Warclaidhm asks, "Where?"

Thurfel says, "there is one in the other office I believe"

Thurfel says, "and several on the beach"

Nodyre deeply asks, "where are they, Dim?"

Warclaidhm asks, "can you take us to the beach?"

You ask, "Are all who wish to be joined, joined?"

You remove a razor-sharp rolaren falchion from in your tooled-leather harness.
You remove a gleaming eonake tower shield from in your tooled-leather harness.

Illumino says, "Now all she's gotta do is run us all off a cliff"

Sheka glances at you.

Varonya nods.

Rongari says, "might as well"

Alanamarie says, "not yet"

Sheka says, "I assume so."

Nodyre deeply says, "ahhh"

Thurfel says, "luckily"

Thurfel says, "I can fly"

Thurfel smiles.

Sothog quietly says, "Heh. Go, lemmings, go."

You chuckle at Thurfel.

Kelemnvor asks, "Like lil lemmings?"

Thurfel says, "nay"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Ready, my lord?"

Illumino nods to Kelemnvor.

Xephren warmly says, "where are we going"

Thurfel says, "Iscikella will be leading us"

Xephren warmly asks, "where are we going?"

Thurfel says, "keep your guard up"

Illumino says, "just like Little Lemmings"

Thurfel says, "please"

Thurfel says, "just in case"

You say, "Allright, heading out to the keep then."

Rongari raises his rolaren tower shield skyward!

Thurfel nods to you.

[Thurfel's Keep]
As eclectic and bizarre as this keep might look, it still bears all of the standard protection that any fortress might provide its owner. Passage to or from the outside of the structure is guarded by a sturdy glaes portcullis that has been colored in the wildest pink imaginable. Numerous strands of colorful seashells that have been suspended from the ceiling are all that bar the path into the keep itself.
Also here: Arhommh, Omah, Miranne
Obvious paths: east, west
Kenyadaa, Friendlly, Tygron, Vonalin, Kelemnvor, Angelnero, Lonewolfe, Elforia, Rongari, Breager, Adimiron, Nazradin, Sraven, Queatus, Cryheart, Perigourd, Arkadeis, Galdecame, Nereth, Grandevr, Junis, Silnoc, Casamilla, Evelith, Astrall, Deathlore, Seibhan, Xodie, Illumino, Altasren, Minirova, Xephren, Vorctal, Beourne, Varonya, Atoyoz, Warclaidhm, Squinch, Aranrhod, Nithili, Kasia, Sothog, Tazk, Kadesha, Azeareal, Vonka and Thurfel followed.

Omah gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Vonka grins.

You ask, "First room, m'lord. Anything special about here?"

Thurfel says, "I would ask that you all keep your words and actions to a minimum"

A swirling grey-blue mist slowly fills the area. It begins to spin faster and faster, congealing into a large upright disk. The mist slows its spinning and within the swirling vapors you can make out an opening.
Darckwizard steps out of the swirling mist.
The swirling mist begins to speed up as it spirals back into the opening and fades away.

Thurfel says, "in order to avoid distractions"

Vonalin says, "We got a posse now."

Thurfel says, "if you have questions"

You say, "Aye, is very hard to hear."

Thurfel says, "please do not whisper them"

You nod.

Thurfel says, "ask them outloud, so the group can share in the information"

Thurfel says, "The keep itself"

Thurfel says, "was built after I created the island"

Thurfel says, "the island was fairly simple to create"

Thurfel says, "as you know"

Sheka leans against a string of hanging seashells.

Thurfel says, "there is a great deal of solid matter at the bottom of a sea"

Thurfel says, "you simply convince that matter to rise"

Thurfel says, "and you have your island"

Breager merrily asks, "You can create islands....?"

Minirova asks, "How ya convince it to rise?"

Thurfel says, "I fear I didn't put much interest in the shape of the island"

Adimiron says, "ahhh simple"

You say, "Ah... magely powers."

Kelemnvor asks, "so its floats?"

Casamilla exclaims, "Magic!"

Thurfel says, "I wish I had spent some time being a bit more creative"

Dalboz deeply says, "guess my charisma isn't high enough yet for that kind of convincing"

Xulia gawks at Thurfel.

Dalboz smirks.

Thurfel says, "no, it does not float"

Xulia breaks out in a silly grin.

Thurfel says, "tis solid"

You ask, "What shape would ye have had it, m'lord?"

Thurfel says, "imagine lava..."

Sylviana glances at Dalboz.

Minirova rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Sheka swears fluidly and vividly at Xulia.

Shallimar deeply asks, "cant ya reshape it?"

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "rising in a fluid"

Sheka glowers.

Thurfel says, "it simply stretches"

Niasan asks, "Creative as in making it look something like a smiling face if you looked at it from above?"

Kelemnvor nods to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "milady, allow us to move to the next room"

[Thurfel's Keep]
The irregularly shaped stones that were used to construct these walls are marred by a series of deep gouges that score the surface from top to bottom. The marks look animal-like, but it's difficult to imagine what sort of beast might have the power to leave such jagged cuts in the sturdy rock.

[Thurfel's Keep]
A stack of rotting crates piled in one corner appears to be an unsafe method of gaining the upper level. The wood is pitted and moldy, numerous splinters and cracks marring the surface of the wood.

[Thurfel's Keep]
Most of the floor tiles of this passage are warped, and from their gnarled shape it appears that they have melted. A few discolored splotches that stain what's left of the remaining floor suggest that something rather nasty was spilled onto the tile, perhaps some odd potion or concoction.

Your surroundings blur into a white fog . . .

[Icemule Trace, Ice Garden]
Alpine flowerbeds ring this tucked-away courtyard, their bright colors a feast for the eyes in comparison to the white of all the snow that lies beyond the gate. Tamped snow paths keep footsteps soft in this small haven as travellers make their way to and from the chambers north of here. Centered in a bed of white edelweiss and aromatic purple-flowered calamintha is an ice fountain, its watery spray frozen in a sparkling plume. You also see some torban leaf, some haphip root, some torban leaf, some ephlox moss, some ephlox moss and a wrought-iron gate.
