Vessel One
Day of the Huntress, day 19 of the month Olaesta in the year 5102

***TECHNICAL NOTE***
This log is actually the combination of five logs from three players, three from Iscikella's player, one from Adimiron's player and one from Blizzerdd's player. It should be noted, therefore, that in this log the "you" references refer to any of these three characters, as noted in the initial reference.
Also in Iscikella's final log, the words/actions of the lich essence are recognizable as they read "Iscikella" rather than "you" and the acts are not in parentheses. During the time the lich essence was in control of Iscikella, I -- the player -- had no input into those words/actions.
***END NOTE***

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

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.

Alyxandrah just went south.

Sheka nods to Thurfel.

[Mill Tower, Windmill]
The wind creaks through the boards around the shaft of the windmill, which drives the gears to grind grain into flour for the town. The miller carefully checks the hoppers which feed the grain to the millstones below, ensuring that each sack of flour produced is of the same high-quality as the last. Hoppers filled with corn, wheat, and oats are brimming, testifying to the abilities of the nearby farmers. You also see a stack of empty crates and the miller Dustytoes.
Obvious exits: down.

look on crate
There is nothing on there.

A low creaking noise can be heard from the windmill as the shaft slowly turns the blades.

look behind crate
There is nothing behind there.

A low creaking noise can be heard from the windmill as the shaft slowly turns the blades.

look under crate
Under the empty crates you see a faceted blood red sphere.

You remove a faceted blood red sphere from under a stack of empty crates.

You hear your own faint thoughts echoing in your head:
"i have found it"

You hear the faint thoughts of Turinrond echo in your mind:
"Whar was it?"

You hear the faint thoughts of Sindani echo in your mind:
"where was it?"

You hear your own faint thoughts echoing in your head:
"windmill"

A horrible sensation wracks your body, the blood red sphere trembling slightly in your hand. What could only be described as a feeling of pure malevolence runs through your veins.

Your body shudders from a terrible series of spasms momentarily. When the agony finally subsides, you feel weak and drained.

Something just tapped you on the shoulder!

You hear the voice of Aslakian say, "Thats mine."

You hear the voice of Aslakian exclaim, "Return it now!"

The shaft turns slightly as the wind catches the windmill's blades.

You say, "hello sir"

Kugra just arrived.

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

You hear the faint thoughts of Kugra echo in your mind:
"Aslakian is not far behind..."

Some type of mystical energy is preventing you from placing the blood red sphere into the mantle.

A horrible sensation wracks your body, the blood red sphere trembling slightly in your hand. What could only be described as a feeling of pure malevolence runs through your veins.

Your body shudders from a terrible series of spasms momentarily. When the agony finally subsides, you feel weak and drained.

[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.

Thurfel says, "poorly"

Merjinia nods.

Thurfel says, "but yes"

Alyxandrah says, "Adimiron says he's found it, my lord."

You lean on your staff.

Sticky says, "well Thurfel.... we checked the windmill before..."

You tap Thurfel, but much to your horror, flames envelope your finger the moment you touch him. You pull your hand back before it becomes a cinder, but not before the damage is done.

Thurfel says, "he is in danger then"

Something just tapped you on the shoulder!

Roelon laughs!

Sheka sneers at you.

Thurfel asks, "you have it?"

You hear the voice of Aslakian say, "If you give it back, I shall give you a gold mine I know of in the north."

Eldrec says, "Whoa.."

You hear the voice of Aslakian say, "Give it back now."

Roelon says, "Hush, Lich."

Davlos says, "oh jeez"

Thurfel says, "go away Aslakian"

Eldrec pokes 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.

You ask, "gold?"

Alyxandrah says, "Give it to Thurfel."

You rub your chin thoughtfully.

Aslakian says, "Yes, gold."

Eldrec says, "Wow"

Merjinia says, "Dont' do it"

Sheka says, "Give it to Thurfel."

Sheka nods to you.

You ask, "how much gold?"

Sheka says, "Give it to Thurfel."

Sindani pokes you in the ribs.

Thurfel says, "don't you dare give it to him"

Alyxandrah blinks at you.

Sheka stares at you.

You glance at Sheka.

Eldrec says, "Thurfel, you know.. don't think i'm trying to hit on you but.. Your really hot"

Alyxandrah asks, "What does that matter?"

Thurfel says, "you will endanger the entire town"

Sindani asks, "Do ye not care for this town?"

Sticky says, "oh ppoh, Sheka..."

Aslakian says, "Give it here, else I shall begin to kill everyone here."

Thurfel nods to Eldrec.

Alyxandrah says, "You're going to help save a town."

Sticky coughs.

A horrible sensation wracks your body, the blood red sphere trembling slightly in your hand. What could only be described as a feeling of pure malevolence runs through your veins.

Your body shudders from a terrible series of spasms momentarily. When the agony finally subsides, you feel weak and drained.

Roelon says, "Nae enough gold in the lands.....that is worth yir soul."

You hear the faint thoughts of Turinrond echo in your mind:
"Northern Fury, on standby, monitor the white channel for developments or orders"

Thurfel says, "he is bluffing"

Sticky says, "pooh even..."

Roelon nods to you.

Aslakian says, "Their deaths will be on you."

Alyxandrah gawks at you.

Sheka swears fluidly and vividly.

You have no idea what Bonespur is attempting to steal from Aslakian, but before he can, flames envelope his hand! Startled, he pulls his hand back before it becomes a cinder, but not before the damage is done.

Jestin just arrived.

You join Thurfel.

Alyxandrah says, "Give it to Thurfel, hurry."

Aslakian says, "Then I will hunt your family down."

Stunseed whispers, "Give it to me, I will make a choice."

Lord Turinrond's group just arrived.

Atoyoz leans on Turinrond.

Aslakian says, "Your line will end today."

Gradin growls ferociously!

Thurfel says, "let me have the orb I shall put it in a safe place"

Sheka sneers at Aslakian.

Arimantis says, "Bah.. You will kill us all no matter what, if you had yer way"

You offer your blood red sphere to Thurfel, who has 30 seconds to accept the offer. Type CANCEL to prematurely cancel the offer.

Thurfel says, "and we will be free of this wretch"

The lich gestures at Sheka, spiraling coils of flames leaping from its fingertips. Somebody get some butter, Sheka is toast!
... 50 points of damage!
Head explodes, splattering sizzling bits of flesh and bone everywhere.
Sheka drops dead at your feet!

Thurfel has accepted your offer and is now holding a faceted blood red sphere.

Lorcann smirks.

Kugra growls ferociously!

Roelon asks, "Such lies, Aslakian. Are ye afraid of something?"

Alyxandrah gasps.

Alyxandrah just kneeled down and pulled Sheka's lifeless body into her arms.

Kitlee shrieks!

Kugra swings a notched ora-inlaid longsword at Aslakian!
AS: +92 vs DS: +67598 with AvD: +41 + d100 roll: +25 = -67440
A clean miss.

You hear the ghostly voice of Svol say, "eeps"

Eldrec says, "Whoa"

Merjinia says, "oh no"

You see a wave of energy emanate from Atoyoz toward Sheka. It coalesces around her body and then seeps in, leaving a glow around the body.

The lich gestures at Kitlee, spiraling coils of flames leaping from its fingertips. Somebody get some butter, Kitlee is toast!
... 50 points of damage!
Head explodes, splattering sizzling bits of flesh and bone everywhere.
Kitlee drops dead at your feet!

Thurfel says, "leave them be Aslakian"

You hear the ghostly voice of Sheka say, "Bad loser"

Bonespur blinks.

Sticky chuckles.

Sheka gives a ghostly chuckle.

You hear the ghostly voice of Kitlee exclaim, "I KNEW IT!"

Stunseed says, "Heh."

Kugra grabs Sheka and tries to drag her, but she doesn't budge.

Aslakian exclaims, "Give it here Thurfel!"

Alyxandrah glares at Aslakian.

Roelon chuckles.

Sindani says, "oi"

Jestin gestures at Kitlee.
A luminescent web briefly forms around Kitlee, then fades into the body.

You hear the ghostly voice of Svol say, "o great.."

Kugra growls ferociously!

Arimantis moves to stand in front of Thurfel.

Your injuries hinder your attempt to hide.
You see Diamae turn her head in your direction as you hide.
You see Dubon turn his head in your direction as you hide.
You see Alyxandrah turn her head in your direction as you hide.
You see Aorne turn his head in your direction as you hide.
You see Bolrish turn his head in your direction as you hide.
You see Gerado turn his head in your direction as you hide.
You see Jennawyn turn her head in your direction as you hide.
You attempt to blend with the surroundings, but don't feel very confident about your success.

Turinrond says, "Dun't bother tryin' ta fight 'em"

You hear the ghostly voice of Kitlee say, "Thank you Jestin."

Alyxandrah rubs Sheka gently.

Thurfel says, "or I shall crush you into nothing but ash"

The lich gestures at Roelon, spiraling coils of flames leaping from its fingertips. Somebody get some butter, Roelon is toast!
... 35 points of damage!
Flame sets Roelon's head alight like a torch. Burned beyond recognition.
Roelon drops dead at your feet!

Jestin frowns.

Merjinia struggles to stand, but fails.

Alyxandrah blinks at Roelon.

Sheka gives a ghostly chuckle.

Aslakian exclaims, "The town will pay for your insolence!"

Roelon's body jerks and trembles involuntarily, his muscles no longer controlled by his brain.

Jestin says, "Getting tired of liches"

Sticky says, "Don't give to to em..."

Leatardo says, "Wow...this is interesting"

Alyxandrah looks at Roelon and gags.

Jestin gestures.
Jestin falls to his knees in supplication as an eerie silence overtakes the area. A cold mist drifts in, blanketing the area in its clammy embrace.

Kleyn says, "more werk, ye poor dear"

Alyxandrah says, "That always happens to you."

Kleyn smiles at Jestin.

A thunderous din echoes all around as the very earth shudders beneath your feet, rending apart and revealing fissures steaming with the rancid stench of brimstone.

You hear the ghostly voice of Svol say, "bah why do i haveta be dead when something happens."

Alyxandrah begins chuckling at Roelon.

Thurfel says, "I warned you"

Arimantis says, "Ya not gonna win.. Lich. Not this time"

You hear the ghostly voice of Roelon say, "Oh, poor lich. Ah can see ye trembling.."

Dubon says, "give him the orb before it is too late"

Lorcann lets out an eloquently vile series of grunts.

The lich gestures at Jestin, spiraling coils of flames leaping from its fingertips. Somebody get some butter, Jestin is toast!
... 40 points of damage!
Head reduced to a charred stump.
Jestin drops dead at your feet!

Sindani forces Jestin's mouth open, and pours in a small amount from her white flask.
A luminescent web briefly forms around Jestin, then fades into the body.

Alyxandrah stands up.

Leatardo says, "Kill Bonespur too, he's a creep"

Atoyoz slowly empties her lungs.

Thurfel waves his abalone sceptre at Aslakian!
The very ground itself comes alive, the dirt and stones at your feet exploding upward. The debris continues to erupt, until vision is completely obscured. Thunder booms overhead, and a several forked lightning bolts assault the area. Finally, the chaos subsides, but Aslakian is gone.
Aslakian just vanished.

Lorcann exclaims, "Dammit!"

Merjinia roars!

Leatardo snickers.

Alyxandrah slowly empties her lungs.

Arimantis searches around for a moment.

Roelon gives a ghostly chuckle.

Leatardo sashays about with a content look on his face.

Alyxandrah rubs Sheka gently.

Turinrond says, "well, that went well"

Bonespur bites Leatardo!

Merjinia says, "get outta my town yas nasty lich"

Turinrond nods to Thurfel.

Atoyoz curtsies to Thurfel.

Kitlee gives a ghostly chuckle.

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched.
The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

You hear the ghostly voice of Jestin say, "Didna like me casting wrath"

You hear the ghostly voice of Roelon say, "Foolish being."

Sindani forces Roelon's mouth open, and pours in a small amount from her white flask.
A luminescent web briefly forms around Roelon, then fades into the body.

Roelon's body jerks and trembles involuntarily, his muscles no longer controlled by his brain.

Leatardo says, "Bad man"

Jestin gives a ghostly chuckle.

Thurfel shudders terribly, his face turning pale and white. You can't help but notice the agony etched upon his's face.

Kleyn rubs Jestin gently.

Turinrond asks, "ye 'ave the orb, aye?"

Lorcann scowls.

Thurfel says, "now..."

Leatardo says, "Bad Bad Man"

You hear the voice of Bonespur say, "Always"

Plumbley's jaw drops.

A pained expression crosses Atoyoz's face.

Kleyn begins a careful examination of Jestin -- she takes his pulse, checks his temperature, and checks for broken bones or any other ailments.

Alyxandrah glances at Thurfel.

Alyxandrah asks, "Are you alright?"

Chomm meditates over Thurfel.
Chomm takes Thurfel's nervous system damage.

Thurfel says, "let us put the sphere away"

Arimantis asks, "You alright Thurfel?"

You stumble out of hiding.

You hear the ghostly voice of Jestin say, "Could use an lk"

Thurfel says, "I am, I fear others are not"

Eldrec exclaims, "Ok, who did what this time!"

Sticky chuckles.

You gaze in wonder at your surroundings.

Thurfel says, "those who are well."

Kleyn says, "yer kept i think"

Thurfel says, "come with me"

Sindani says, "I Lked you Jestin"

Great Lord Blizzerdd just arrived.

Lorcann asks, "Were ya tak'n it?"

You ask, "sound able to heal me a bit?"

You hear the ghostly voice of Sheka say, "Aye. Place it where it will be forever."

You hear the ghostly voice of Jestin say, "Thanks lass"

Leatardo kicks Bonespur!

Roelon's body jerks and trembles involuntarily, his muscles no longer controlled by his brain.

Thurfel traces a rune upon the ground.

Atoyoz blinks.

You hear the ghostly voice of Sheka say, "Someone raise my carcass"

Thurfel shudders terribly, his face turning pale and white. You can't help but notice the agony etched upon his's face.

Arimantis nods.

As quickly as the chaos ensues, the ground is made whole again. You are left bewildered and awestruck at the fury of the divine retribution.

You hear the ghostly voice of Sheka say, "Someone raise my carcass"

Lorcann blinks.

Roelon gives a ghostly chuckle.

Something begins to waver in front of you.

Atoyoz glances over at Thurfel and winces.

Bonespur blinks at Thurfel.

Plumbley works his fingers under his purple beret and scratches his head.

Thurfel says, "tis the orb"

Plumbley exclaims, "Bestest friend Sheka, you don't look so good!"

Lorcann asks, "Wand dat arm fixed?"

Sticky chuckles.

Eldrec says, "My hand got burned.."

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

[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 white flask, the Turinrond disk, the Xanitar disk, an acid-pitted brass coffer and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it.

Lorcann raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Leatardo recites:
"Would you all like to hear a limerick?"

Kleyn grabs Jestin's body and drags it west with her.

You cock your head at Blizzerdd.

You hear the ghostly voice of Sheka say, "Hush fool inbred"

Falvicar gestures at Sheka.
Falvicar suddenly looks very drained.
A bolt of soft white light streaks down from the sky bathing Sheka in it.
A brilliant glow forms around Sheka, lingers for a moment, and finally fades. Sheka awakens looking somewhat confused and seriously drained.
Sheka's body suddenly grows darker.

Arimantis says, "Maybe.. ya shoud get that ta where it be goin.. fast"

Sindani says, "Now is not the time for that"

Roelon's body jerks and trembles involuntarily, his muscles no longer controlled by his brain.

You blink.

Plumbley pokes Sheka in the ribs.

Alyxandrah gestures at Sheka.
The glazed look leaves Sheka.

Blizzerdd whispers, "people joined him"

Alyxandrah tries to pull Sheka to her feet, but she is too heavy.

Thurfel says, "go to the portal if you dare"

Sheka cackles!

Sheka struggles to stand, but fails.

Plumbley's jaw drops.

Alyxandrah tries to pull Sheka to her feet, but she is too heavy.

Alyxandrah went through a shimmering crimson portal.

You join Thurfel.

Leatardo recites:
"Well, I'm afraid I don't have one right now"

Thurfel says, "it will only remain a moment"

Kalinash went through a shimmering crimson portal.
Lord Turinrond went through a shimmering crimson portal.
Sindani went through a shimmering crimson portal.

Sheka struggles to stand, but fails.

Grand Lord Thurfel's group went through a shimmering crimson portal.

[Vault]
Bloodstained brick walls banded with darkened steel enclose this small chamber. Several torches illuminate the area, the reflections from the firelight flickering off the obsidian altar resting in the center of this barren room. Scattered about the base of the altar are numerous grossly misshapen bones, none even remotely recognizeable. You also see the Turinrond disk.
Also in the room: Arimantis, Lady Atoyoz, Zasper, Kcutter, Lorcann, Adimiron, Great Lord Blizzerdd, Great Lord Bonespur, Lord Eldrec, Chomm, Fahlen, Plumbley, Brediph, Sticky, Diamae, Lady Rendena, Lady Witcheaven, Merjinia, Riyann, Grand Lord Thurfel, Sindani, Lord Turinrond, Kalinash, Kugra, Alyxandrah Obvious exits: none.

Alyxandrah just touched an obsidian altar.

Arimantis ponders.

Brediph frets.

Lady Sheka just arrived.

Turinrond clasps Atoyoz's hand tenderly.

Eldrec asks, "Where are we?"

Lorcann says, "Och..."

A pained expression crosses Diamae's face.

Lorcann gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

You say, "Ah, the vault"

Thurfel says, "I have the sphere of Aslakian"

Gradin squints.

Bonespur says, "Uh, oh"

Alyxandrah says, "The vault."

Sindani says, "We canna cast here"

Sticky says, "hmmm..."

Thurfel shudders terribly, his face turning pale and white. You can't help but notice the agony etched upon his's face.

You blink at Thurfel.

Adimiron strikes a heroic pose.

Bonespur says, "Destroy it"

Sheka glances at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "his power will lessen by the day"

You exclaim, "Good!"

You nod to Thurfel.

Alyxandrah smiles.

Sticky asks, "Watcha cringin about, Thurfel?"

Plumbley works his fingers under his purple beret and scratches his head.

Atoyoz trembles.

Adimiron says, "he hurt me for finding it too"

Thurfel places the blood red sphere onto the altar. The orb settles into the depression and flares wildly for a moment. The illumination slowly fades, until there is little more than a wisp of fire visible within.

Sheka nods to Kugra.

Witcheaven furrows her brow.

Arimantis asks, "Is there anything we need to.. or is it a natural process?"

You rub Adimiron.

Arimantis glances at an obsidian altar.

Bonespur throws his head back and howls!

Turinrond asks, "Are ye able ta determine which soul is possessed by that one thar?"

You take a quick appraisal of Adimiron and find that he has minor bruises on his neck, a fractured and bleeding left arm, a fractured and bleeding right hand, and minor bruises about the head.
He is bleeding slightly from the left arm.

Turinrond peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "yes"

Plumbley gawks at an obsidian altar.

Bonespur grins at Thurfel.

Alyxandrah glances at an obsidian altar.

You say, "I imagine he would"

Alyxandrah beams happily at Thurfel!

Thurfel says, "it was the sphere of Aslakian"

Adimiron frowns.

Sheka asks, "It is done with him then?"

You meditate over Adimiron.
Adimiron's left arm damage is transferred to you.

Sticky chuckles.

Thurfel says, "he is still powerful"

You meditate over Adimiron.
Adimiron's right hand damage is transferred to you.

Atoyoz leans on Turinrond.

Adimiron says, "thank you"

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

Adimiron smiles at you.

Thurfel says, "but his power will dwindle"

Brediph ducks behind his vultite shield.

Sheka nods.

Eldrec asks, "Ok, who is that guy?"

Thurfel says, "the altar will drain him"

Arimantis says, "Judgin from his temper a moment ago.. I would assume Thurfel is right bout that"

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

Lorcann begins chuckling at Witcheaven.

look altar
The circular altar has been crafted from a single large piece of stone. Atop the altar, nine round indentations are spaced equidistant about the perimeter. There is also a small, perfectly round hole cut in the direct center of the obsidian. Grooves lead out from the hole to each of the nine bowl-like indentations. A flickering crimson sphere rests in one depression.

Sheka glances at Arimantis.

Merjinia nods to Arimantis.

Sheka says, "Hello Priest"

Turinrond asks, "eh, sorra.. meant which o' the possessed?"

Blizzerdd whispers, "Who's lich is that?"

Arimantis glances at Sheka.

Witcheaven asks, "Temper?"

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

Sheka smirks.

Arimantis says, "Oh.. you are alive"

Arimantis stares off into space.

Eldrec says, "I'm so confused"

Blizzerdd leans to his right slightly.

Eldrec chuckles.

Witcheaven says, "Seems I've returned to Icemule at the right time."

Faint tendrils of incense drift through the air, the orchid-scented smoke dispersing about the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

You smile at Thurfel.

Sheka leans on Blizzerdd.

Thurfel says, "whoever he was possessing..."

You begin to do your best to mend your wound.
After some effort you manage to stop the bleeding.

Turinrond turns an inquisitive ear towards Thurfel.

Arimantis glances at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "should sense a lessening of his hold"

Lorcann sits down.

Alyxandrah shifts her weight.

Thurfel says, "until they feel nothing"

Bonespur nods to Thurfel.

Fahlen nods to Sticky.

Arimantis ponders.

Atoyoz raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Thurfel says, "some lingering perhaps"

Lorcann gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

You exclaim, "Oh, that is wonderful news!"

Lorcann stands up.

Thurfel says, "but no true power"

Kcutter says, "That shall make them feel better"

Turinrond says, "only ta figger out who that is, mayhaps."

Lorcann scowls.

Sheka asks, "Too bad it was not Elymir's?"

Witcheaven asks, "Who was he possessing? Does anyone know?"

Sheka sneers at you.

Lorcann smirks.

Turinrond nods to Gradin.

You shake your head.

Thurfel says, "it is good to see a sphere upon the altar"

Alyxandrah says, "Or Gavrail's."

Alyxandrah glowers.

Sticky peers quizzically at Sheka.

Lorcann says, "Elymir woulda blasted de whole town."

Lorcann gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Eldrec asks, "Who is possesing who and why?"

You smile at Thurfel.

Plumbley exclaims, "Bestest friend Sheka, your brains are leakifying out of your ears!"

Witcheaven winces.

Plumbley gawks at Sheka.

Arimantis says, "I can't wait ta see Elymir go.."

You whisper quietly to Adimiron, "Where did ye find it?"

Sheka glowers darkly at Plumbley.

Lorcann asks, "De othahs still out there?"

Gradin pokes Kcutter in the ribs.

Lorcann cocks his head at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "yes"

You say, "I can't wait to see Elymir go."

Witcheaven says, "Can't happen too soon."

Lorcann asks, "Where?"

You shudder.

Thurfel says, "I shall send my sages out again"

Fahlen snorts.

Witcheaven nods to Arimantis.

Adimiron whispers, "the windmill underneath some crates"

Thurfel says, "to see if we can't find the second orb"

Merjinia whispers to the group, "why not thurfel?"

Sheka says, "I think the Midguided One will miss him terribly."

Arimantis asks, "What will become of him.. he just fade a way. Or will he be around, jus powerless?"

Bonespur asks, "Dere more abouts?"

Sheka glances at you.

Bonespur glances at Thurfel.

Sheka smirks.

Thurfel says, "he will never be truely powerless"

Blizzerdd stands in front of an obsidian altar.

Adimiron says, "just remember i gave up gold mines for that one"

Gradin asks something in Halfling.

Adimiron smirks.

Thurfel says, "he will be far less powerful however"

Some black puffs of fragrant orchid-scented smoke drift upward and about the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

You whisper quietly to Adimiron, "Hmmm... that is the southwestern part of town. Thought he said southeastern."

Lorcann says, "So searchin' on our own is pointless."

Atoyoz furrows her brow.

Lorcann gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Thurfel says, "I doubt any others will be found"

Bonespur nods.

Sticky says, "heh only a select few could find it anyway..."

Blizzerdd takes a few steps to his left.

Thurfel says, "the sages will renew their efforts"

Bonespur rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You glance at an obsidian altar.

Arimantis asks, "So he will still be a threat?"

Thurfel says, "it could be found by anybody"

Thurfel says, "a threat yes"

Plumbley furrows his brow.

Adimiron whispers, "well be thankful i have a bad sense of direction cause that was the first place i looked"

Thurfel says, "invincible"

Thurfel says, "no"

Adimiron smiles at you.
You smile at Adimiron.

Turinrond says, "tha's goot enough"

Arimantis nods.

You nod to Thurfel.

Turinrond says, "fer now."

Kcutter says, "Tis a start"

You say, "That is so good to hear, m'lord."

Thurfel says, "there is no exit from this chamber..."

Bonespur nods to Thurfel.

Lorcann smirks.

Witcheaven asks, "So.. is he trapped in there?"

Chomm nods to Gradin.

Thurfel says, "it is protected from the prying eyes of the liches"

Merjinia babbles something unintelligible.

Fahlen shakes his head.

Atoyoz slowly empties her lungs.

Plumbley's jaw drops.

You see Grand Lord Thurfel Morpholik the Halfling Wizard.
He appears to be in his 150's, has short, curly sandy blond hair, blue eyes, and pale skin.
He has a strange case of muscle twitching, and some minor cuts and bruises on his left arm.
He is holding a pearlescent abalone sceptre in his right hand. He is wearing a shimmering glaesine orb, an amber serpent earcuff, a singed crabshell pouch, some very scorched robes, a dark leather satchel clasped with a crimson crab, a supple grey leather pouch, and a small coral shield.

Brediph rubs his eyes.

Alyxandrah says, "You can always just kick us out again."

Arimantis gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Plumbley wails!

Alyxandrah winks at Thurfel.

You exclaim, "M'lord, the lich hurt ye!"

Eldrec rubs his chin thoughtfully.

You take a quick appraisal of Thurfel and find that he has a strange case of muscle twitching, and some minor cuts and bruises on his left arm.

You meditate over Thurfel.
Thurfel's nervous system damage is transferred to you.

Riyann rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Alyxandrah gazes heavenward.

Plumbley gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Riyann says, "intreasting"

Brediph gibbers incoherently.

Lorcann says, "Observance isn't yer strong suit, is it? He was hurtin' back in town too."

Lorcann starts chuckling at you!

Fahlen chuckles.

Thurfel makes a few mystical gestures over the sphere and concentrates intently on it. After a moment his eyes glaze over as he receives a vision.

Sheka asks, "Such as the one healing you?"

Sheka smirks.

You say, "I wasn't there."

Bonespur blinks at Thurfel.

Atoyoz glances at Thurfel.

Lorcann smirks.

Alyxandrah raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.
Brediph raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Blizzerdd peers quizzically at Thurfel.

You say, "I was searching for the sphere."

Witcheaven raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Sticky chuckles.

Turinrond leans forward.

Thurfel says, "it is possible the spheres may be used to find the other spheres"

Merjinia peers quizzically at Thurfel.

A trickle of orchid-scented smoke rises languidly up from the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

Atoyoz takes a few steps back.

Lorcann says, "One'd think yah'd look mer closely at 'im, though."

Sticky chuckles.

Witcheaven blinks.

Thurfel says, "a device of homing"

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Sheka says, "You already are gaining from just that one."

Arimantis rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Sheka nods.

Witcheaven says, "Oh, that's quite good news."

Eldrec leans on Alyxandrah.

Arimantis asks, "That safe?"

Kcutter asks, "The orb?"

Riyann frowns.

Alyxandrah just hugged Eldrec.

Eldrec just hugged Alyxandrah.

Thurfel says, "it is safe and protected"

Plumbley exclaims, "This is the bestest house without a door ever!"

Blizzerdd winks at Alyxandrah.

Plumbley beams!

Thurfel says, "the liches can't enter"

Adimiron says, "let me loose on the town ill find them all"

Alyxandrah sticks out her tongue.

Sticky chuckles.

Adimiron smirks.

You unwrap your bandages.
The bandages on your left arm come loose and you begin to bleed more.

Thurfel says, "they will not find this hidden chamber"

You begin to do your best to mend your wound.
After some effort you manage to stop the bleeding.

Sticky says, "yeah right..."

Arimantis says, "I ment.. safe ta use the orb ta find the others"

Arimantis glances at an obsidian altar.

Sheka asks, "Hsark has not been about?"

Thurfel says, "well,"

Lorcann asks, "What 'appens if dey get one?"

Thurfel says, "hmm"

Sticky says, "we looked all over, including that bloody windmill..."

Sheka mutters dwarfs.

Riyann searches around for a moment.

Thurfel says, "I had not thought about that"

Sticky moans.

Lorcann gazes thoughtfully at the obsidian altar.

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "I am sorry didn't notice ye were hurt before. Please forgive."

Plumbley gawks at Thurfel.

Arimantis says, "Hmm.. I will take that as a not really.."

Riyann gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Thurfel says, "if I use it to try to find them"

Arimantis chuckles.

Thurfel says, "they may use it to try to find me"

Thurfel says, "good point"

Sticky chuckles.

Plumbley exclaims, "Magic is hard!"

Alyxandrah says, "Have Iscikella do it."

Turinrond says, "aye"

Plumbley nods.

Sticky says, "doomed, I say..."

Alyxandrah rocks back on her heels.

Thurfel says, "I shall add more protection to the chamber"

Lorcann meditates over Sheka.
Lorcann takes Sheka's head damage.

Merjinia pokes Gradin in the ribs.

Lorcann hums distractedly to himself.

You glance at Alyxandrah.

Sheka says, "Thank you."

Thurfel says, "let me get us away from here"

Sheka nods to Lorcann.

Arimantis gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Lorcann snaps his fingers.

Sheka begins chuckling at Alyxandrah.

Thurfel says, "thank you for the warning"

Alyxandrah says, "Well, you're already possessed, my lady."

Alyxandrah curtsies to you.

Lorcann scowls.

Sticky chuckles.

Blizzerdd rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Atoyoz shifts her weight.

Riyann frowns.

Sheka says, "And she seeks the deepest darkness when she's not."

Brediph frets.

Sheka chuckles.

Some black web-like patterns rise up into the air, as the faint scent of orchid emanates from the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

You say, "That was a rather insensitive remark however."

Riyann paces back and forth.

Alyxandrah says, "Oh, my sincerest apologies, Iscikella."

Bonespur rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Thurfel says, "this may make you a bit dizzy"

Arimantis ponders.

Thurfel waves his abalone sceptre.
Flames and fire explode outward from the sceptre, the heat intense. The raging inferno burns in every direction, then subsides.

[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 the Xanitar disk, a white flask, an acid-pitted brass coffer and a carved ice bench with some stuff on it.

Alyxandrah just went north.

Lorcann chuckles.

Kleyn exclaims, "infectious, knavish, motley-minded, muddle-mettled, pantaloon!"

You hear the voice of Kitlee exclaim, "Did you kill the lich?!"

Adimiron leans on his staff.

Turinrond nods to Arimantis.

Sheka says, "And far better than landing at teras"

Turinrond grins.

Kleyn lets loose with an involved and improbable curse against the day she was born.

Kraniak just arrived.

Sheka chuckles.

Thurfel says, "no"

Turinrond begins chuckling at Sheka.

Thurfel says, "but his power will be drained"

You hear the voice of Kitlee exclaim, "Good!"

Kraniak asks, "any luck with the sphere Thrufel?"

Lorcann asks, "So how'll he finallah be kilt?"

Blizzerdd nods to you.

Blizzerdd chuckles.

Thurfel says, "aye"

Adimiron gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

Witcheaven asks, "So.. he's.. bound to be upset by that?"

Thurfel says, "Adimiron should be praised"

Kraniak says, "oh good"

Adimiron nods.

Sheka says, "It was found and sits where it should."

Adimiron strikes a heroic pose.

Thurfel says, "one note of warning however Adimiron"

Adimiron says, "aye..it took me alot of know how i must say"

Eldrec asks, "We gotta find the other spheres?"

You say, "The mages seem to have an odd sense of direction."

Brediph glances at Thurfel.

Adimiron asks, "yes?"

Brediph frets.

Kraniak says, "dark elves are good at the sort of thing"

Adimiron peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "they could be anywhere"

Eldrec asks, "Where do we find the spheres?"

Plumbley exclaims, "We can hidify it behind our back!"

Witcheaven asks, "So we should search for them?"

Plumbley beams!

Thurfel says, "I have no information on the rest as of yet"

Brediph paces back and forth.

Arimantis says, "Bah.. if the orbs aren't recovered we all gonna die anywho"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "There will be eight others even though the original divining sphere broke, m'lord?"

Kcutter asks, "Any idea as to how long before the rest sense it has been found?"

Astralis asks, "I missed something.. eight other what?"

You hear the voice of Kitlee exclaim, "Get your workers working!"

Astralis peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Bonespur asks, "Should we bother searchin or wait til yas hae more info?"

Thurfel says, "well, you can look'"

Bonespur nods to Thurfel.

Plumbley searches around for a moment.

Adimiron asks, "if i happen apon another..what shall i do with it?"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "Well, that is good to hear anyway."

Thurfel says, "but I will do my best to try to narrow down your search"

Faint tendrils of incense drift through the air, the orchid-scented smoke dispersing about the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

Thurfel says, "tis a big land"

Astralis asks, "look fer what?"

Bonespur starts chortling.

Witcheaven nods.
Bonespur nods.

Plumbley points at Kitlee, ruining her hiding place.

You nod to Thurfel.

Plumbley exclaims, "You aren't an orb!"

You say, "that it is."

Kitlee leans on Plumbley.

Plumbley beams happily at Kitlee!

Kitlee exclaims, "I'm a Kitlee!"

Bonespur asks, "So dey may not necessarily be here in Mule?"

Bonespur squints at Thurfel.

Alyxandrah ponders.

Thurfel says, "could be anywhere"

You hear the voice of Kitlee exclaim, "And afraid of lich men!"

Plumbley works his fingers under his purple beret and scratches his head.

You hear someone whimpering.

Adimiron says, "yes it is..but i can only lessen the places to hide them if i turn the stones"

Bonespur rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Atoyoz fidgets.

Thurfel nods to Alyxandrah.

Blizzerdd leans against an ice statue.

Lorcann says, "Let 'im find 'em all."

Lorcann points at Adimiron.

Lorcann says, "One target fer all 8."

Lorcann chuckles.

Kraniak asks, "Couldnt we just drop these spheres in a crevasse and be done with it?"

Sheka leans on Blizzerdd.

Jestin just went north.

Sheka smiles at Blizzerdd.

Adimiron says, "i am..only worried what to do with them once i find them"

Sheka says, "Hello my Slaver"

Astralis asks, "oo oo.. we're looking for spheres?"

Blizzerdd's face turns slightly pale.

You cock your head at Blizzerdd.

Lorcann asks, "They all be raised up?"

Thurfel says, "If you find one"

Lorcann raises an eyebrow in Thurfel's direction.

Alyxandrah says, "Give them to a crab."

Adimiron says, "since wasnt long for our friend to tap me on the shoulder once i picked it up"

Thurfel says, "please bring it to me"

Alyxandrah winks at Adimiron.

Plumbley exclaims, "We could bashify them with a rock!"

Plumbley beams!

Blizzerdd says, "Or me."

Astralis asks, "where will you be?"

Bonespur nods to Thurfel.

Blizzerdd whistles tunelessly to himself.

Astralis peers quizzically at Thurfel.

You hear the voice of Kitlee ask, "Will you be in your keep?"

Thurfel asks, "where did you find it?"

Adimiron asks, "yes..were shall i find you?"

Sheka says, "Could bashify his head with a rock...."

Sheka mutters under her breath.

Alyxandrah grins at Sheka.

Thurfel begins chuckling at Sheka.

Plumbley furrows his brow.

You hear someone giggle.

Adimiron says, "i found it in the windmill under some crates he had there"

Sheka grins coldly, her eyes reflecting no emotion.

Kraniak says, "I don't think bashify is even a word."

Thurfel says, "he won't be able to search if his head is bashed in"

Bonespur says, "Tis too"

Bonespur nods to Kraniak.

You say, "As I said, odd sense of direction."

You chuckle.

Some black web-like patterns rise up into the air, as the faint scent of orchid emanates from the silver-thorned censer on Turinrond's belt.

Arimantis chuckles.

Astralis asks, "where will you be Thurfel?"

Kraniak rubs his chin thoughtfully.

A halfling deputy saunters in and stares at you curiously.

Jestin just arrived.

Kraniak raises an eyebrow.

Turinrond glances at a halfling deputy.
Witcheaven glances at a halfling deputy.

Jestin sits down.

Sheka swears fluidly and vividly at a halfling deputy.

Thurfel says, "I shall be conferring with my sages"

You hear the voice of Kitlee say, "Yes, get them busy."

Bonespur says, "I kin bashify yas ta prove it be a werd"

Thurfel says, "and trying to ascertain where the next sphere is..."

Witcheaven nods.

Diamae says, "It does nae sound like a hovering sphere if it was under crates..."

Sheka says, "If we can be of any help."

Adimiron asks, "shall i knock on your door when i find another?"

Sheka nods to Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "I shall also ponder on the wisdom of using the first sphere for information"

Astralis asks, "Aye, but Thurfel, you said to bring you them if we find them. Where will you be so we know where to bring em?"

Astralis peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Thurfel says, "it may not be a good idea"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "I thank ye for releasing whoever is now released, m'lord."

[Magical Burrow, Dervish Park]
The snow and ice which dominate Icemule Trace stop abruptly at the fenceline of the park. In their place sits a wide open greensward full of laughing children running everywhere. A strange glow hangs about the area, an odd magical field, slightly shimmering, its outer edge falling right at the snowline. A tall statue comprised of ten wizened halflings in enruned robes stands majestically at the center of the field. You also see an abandoned manor, a low mithril gate, a splendid colorful tiled home, a plain residence and an abandoned hall.
Obvious paths: north, west.

You blink.

You thrash around on the ground.
