with sickly, ghastly looking yellowish flowers atop thick, corded vines that
once moved of their own accord.
RSwiftblade: ::starts to hum softly under his breath what sounds like a
battle song as he takes out a wetstone and sharpens his blade::

would send up to six flowers at a time, in an effort to entrance its victims
AlexPetrovich99: (whoa Stan.. I thought we destroyed the plant..)
Tolmara: Now, all there is, is a dead and burnt husk. Still, the odor of
mustard hangs in the air.

recedes into the background and it grows noticeably cooler. The passage soon
broadens out into a large cavern. ((description follows))
Tolmara: Groves of man-sized mushrooms and toadstools dominate the rocky
tiers of this echoing, multi-terraced cavern. Vivid splashes of purple
highlight some of the larger fungi, while the shorter stalks range from a

dry as brittle grass. She turns her face, with blind milky eyes towards you.

tainted..and the mushrooms are safe to eat, if you like them , that is"

Baltak2: "you booky boys can play with these smelly herbs ye all seem so
Tolmara: (you're not sure where such a place would be. certainly not here
that's for sure.)
AlexPetrovich99: "I cannot tell anything special about the pin though..
maybe ask one of those wizard types"
NeoGameBrain: ((umm...isn't there a lake somewhere?))
Lunauc: (northern part of the room))
WyldElfRanger: ::takes her there for the moment and looks to see how safe
and pure the water is::
NeoGameBrain: ::comes running in with the others, lighted staff wielded
defensively and sensing for magic::
Baltak2: "maybe somebody should explore that lake a bit with the skiff?"
((depending on size of skiff of course))
WyldElfRanger: ((survival check should suffice))
OnlineHost: WyldElfRanger rolled 1 20-sided die: 13
WyldElfRanger: (20 total to see how pure the water is)
RSwiftblade: "Ask her who and why she was bound here."
WyldElfRanger: "She's a dryad but as to why she was bound, I think that
should be rather obvious but I shall ask anyway"
Tolmara: (not very pure. As most of this place, it seems to be muddy, and
tainted with corruption)
Lunauc: ::seeing the room cleared of danger, and them on the other side,
tending to someone:: :-) "Hehe... guess they took care of it already..."
NeoGameBrain: "Reiner! Je'rar! Where's the target?
Tolmara: The skiff seems to be sizeable for only one person.
Lunauc: ::begins walking toward the others... quietly::
WyldElfRanger: ::asks in Sylvan:: "I am not sure how well this pool shall
suffice, fair one, but it's all we have right now."
RSwiftblade: "The targets have been eliminated"
Tolmara: The dryad smiles faintly. She indicates that she would like to go
into the pool, and motions you to follow.
AlexPetrovich99: ::inspects the following :
Baltak2: "I don't know if it's a good idea to explore this lake too
thoroughly since only 1 may ride in the skiff"
AlexPetrovich99: six red feathered darts, a cold iron dagger and a gold pin
shaped like an oak tree
AlexPetrovich99: anything ?
NeoGameBrain: ::stops and looks around at the familiar piles of ash:: "So I
see. Is everybody okay?"
RSwiftblade: "Ask her if she knows about the pins?"
Tolmara: (Je'rar: they are what they are)
WyldElfRanger: :nods and lowers her into the pool and then asks in
Sylvan::"How did you happen to come into your current position, milady?"
AlexPetrovich99: ahahaha too funny.. ok
Tolmara: "I was travelling through the woods, when I fell into a nightshade
trap, for this is what these creatures are. Not true ur-Mordghe, but dwarves
who worship Splin' Derathra. I was foolish to travel so close to their lair
Tolmara: suffered for my haste."
Lunauc: ::strolls over to the pool, eyeing the strange woman they are
helping:: :-) "Hello"
NeoGameBrain: ::investigates the piles of ash, sensing for magical auras and
using knowledge arcana to determine what magic could create such creatures::
AlexPetrovich99: ::files that away for future knowledge::
Tolmara: "The nightshades were planning to raze the inn known as Shadowrest,
for it lies too close to a nightshade burial ground. In fact they may have
done so already, for I sense it is past the sun's rising."
WyldElfRanger: ::his face darknes as understanding comes in.::
OnlineHost: NeoGameBrain rolled 1 20-sided die: 12
Lunauc: :-\ "huh?"
Tolmara: "They concocted a plot to take away all of the inhabitants through
the use of poison and subterfuge, and planned to exchange their lives
NeoGameBrain: ((20 on knowledge arcana check on the ashes))
AlexPetrovich99: "The people of the inn already walked through a portal but
it closed before i could step through it.. how can I save them from this
Tolmara: for a potent magical item from the ilythiiri."
RSwiftblade: "Tell her that they have slayed all those in the inn"
WyldElfRanger: "Nightshade are fey that are more trouble than anything
AlexPetrovich99: "reiner; we do not know that for sure yet"
WyldElfRanger: "You killed the others right?"
Tolmara: (Arinth: the ashes are the decomposed remains of the nightshades)
Tolmara: "Now, if you will allow me to leave this place, I can take you to
where you must free the inhabitants of the inn."
RSwiftblade: "Ask her what do we need to do to stop them and how many are

forth among his conversing companions::

WyldElfRanger: "Killing them would be doing the rest of the forest a favor"
RSwiftblade: "Shall we ladies and gents?"
Lunauc: "Hai Hai!" ::Holds up an eager hand all of a sudden::
Tolmara: "You only need to slay the two remaining nightshade. Actually,
since you have slain their leader, you may find that no blood need be shed."
RSwiftblade: ::grabs some of the non poisonous for a snack::
Baltak2: "ye point em out and we shall take care of those things"
NeoGameBrain: "Only two? That almost sounds too simple."
AlexPetrovich99: ((if yer still here in an hour or two I shall return))
WyldElfRanger: "I hope not but they can be very troublesome. Just as dryads
are the spirits of trees and beneficial bits of the forest Nightshades are
the darker poisonous representations"
Tolmara: (we'll be here)
Lunauc: (c ya then)
RSwiftblade: "Will these two cause more evil in the world if they live?"
WyldElfRanger: "More than likely"
RSwiftblade: "Then they should be destroyed"
Baltak2: "I ain't one that like ta commune with nature... but these things
are foul and should be removed"
Lunauc: ::sits scratching at himself, waiting for the others to decide a
course of action::
Baltak2: "they look like a mockery of dwarves and that be enuff fer me to
want em removed"
RSwiftblade: "Aye lets go get them quickly and free the others"
RSwiftblade: "Ask her to lead the way"
RSwiftblade: "I am most fortunate to have seen a living dryad. I will have
to tell my father one day"
Tolmara: The dryad plunges into the pool of water, quickly becoming one with
the water itself. On contact with the lake, she manages to turn the water
clear and purify a portion of it of its taint.
Baltak2: ((afk fam))
Lunauc: ::watching the water clear:: =-O "Woooowww..."
Tolmara: "Come to me, enter me, for wheresoever there is water, you are
WyldElfRanger: ::enters the water without hesitation::
WyldElfRanger: "Thanks, milady, I bid you peace"
Baltak2: ::follows in::
NeoGameBrain: "Kill them. Spare them. It makes little difference to me.
But it might be wise to keep one around long enough for interrogation."
RSwiftblade: ::starts to shake:: "I am not so fond of the water my lady...I
Tolmara: So saying, the dryad rises up from the pool of water, but now she
has literally become at one with the water, a figure of power composed
entirely of pure water and quicksilver.
Tolmara: As she rises, you see a shimmering portal through which you can see
all of the people in the inn, milling blindly about two nightshades and a
RSwiftblade: ::Reiner's face turns white::
NeoGameBrain: ::stares in awe at the feat::
Lunauc: ::to reiner:: "can't we just take the skiff?"
Lunauc: ::notices the display of dryad power:: =-O
RSwiftblade: "How deep is the water?"
WyldElfRanger: ::goes through the portal with his bow drawn and an arrow
NeoGameBrain: ::face suddenly turns grim::
NeoGameBrain: "A giant. I knew this sounded too simple."
RSwiftblade: ::starts to chant::
WyldElfRanger: "Thank you, fair one, fare thee well"
Tolmara: (less than 4' at this point)
Baltak2: ::readies axe as he steps thru::
Tolmara: (Reiner: less than 4' at this point)
RSwiftblade: "Oh War Father give me your strength!"
NeoGameBrain: ::straps his staff to his back and equips his crossbow::
RSwiftblade: (strength sphere bonus)
RSwiftblade: "Give me your fortutude"
RSwiftblade: (Birthsign Con Bonus)
WyldElfRanger: ((I gotta leave now, unfortunately))
Lunauc: ::moves closer to the dryad staring at her with awe:: "Coool." :-D
"Can I feel?"
NeoGameBrain: ::cautiously goes through the portal, holding his breath from
RSwiftblade: (Reiner looks pumped up)
RSwiftblade: ::moves toward the portal ever so quickly::
Lunauc: ::watching the others go, preps his x-bow, takes a breath and moves
Tolmara: The dryad turns to the stooped human. "Why, certainly, small one.
Although I cannot hold the portal for long. You had best hurry through."
Lunauc: "Hai hai. Thank you ma'am"
Tolmara: She stops to think a minute, and then kisses the stooped human
gently on the forehead. "I sense much suffering in you, small one, and this
is my gift to one such as you, from one sufferer to another."
Lunauc: ::cocks his head in complete lack of understanding, and shrugs::
"Ok. thanks again"
RSwiftblade: "Let's go! ARRRGGG!!!!"
Lunauc: "Coming! Coming!" ::Hurries up behind the others::
Tolmara: As you step through the portal, you feel a cool breeze on your
backs. It's as if you're bathing in the cool touch of a waterfall, and just
as suddenly as you entered the portal, its over.
OnlineHost: RSwiftblade rolled 1 20-sided die: 16
Tolmara: You emerge from the dryadgate on the shore of the other end of the
underground river, in a large cavern contains all of the inhabitants of the
inn. At the other end of the cavern is a small plateau, upon which the two
RSwiftblade: (on giant)
Tolmara: can be seen conferring with the hill giant.
Lunauc: (.... how do you intimidate a giant?)
Tolmara: The giant on the other hand suddenly turns its gaze on the party
Baltak2: ::spits into palms::"bigger they are harder they fall"
Tolmara: (Reiner, you're not in the giant's presence and you're at least 50'
Lunauc: :-\ "What if he falls on us though?"
Baltak2: ((boy wish i had my birthsign abil right now or my rage lol))
Baltak2: ((or better both))
RSwiftblade: ((the rage will be next LOL))
Tolmara: The giant slaps one of the nightshades, hard enough that it falls
off the plateau.
OnlineHost: Tolmara rolled 4 6-sided dice: 3 3 5 1
Tolmara: It crumples to dust, upon hitting the ground with a loud crash.
Tolmara: The other nightshade looks first at you, then at the giant, and
backs off in fear.
Baltak2: ::charges in with axe on high::"time ta die fat boy!"
Lunauc: :-P "Think he's on our side?"
Tolmara: The giant completely ignores Dantrag and closes in on the
RSwiftblade: ::presses for attack...moving forward with determination::
RSwiftblade: "I hate hill giants..."
Lunauc: ::stays put watching the hill giant work.::
Baltak2: "They smell funny when ye cut em down"
Tolmara: As you charge forward, you spot a path leading up the plateau, but
its a torturous route, not made for hasty charging.
Lunauc: ::to reiner:: "Hey leave him alone!"
OnlineHost: Tolmara rolled 2 20-sided dice: 13 15
OnlineHost: Tolmara rolled 2 20-sided dice: 9 16
Baltak2: ::makes way up that path as quickly as possible::
NeoGameBrain: "Looks like we only have to worry about the big one. Be
careful going in. Boyle and I will cover you at range."
OnlineHost: Tolmara rolled 2 6-sided dice: 6 4
Lunauc: "He'staking out the bad guys ain't he?"
RSwiftblade: "Hm you do have a point"
NeoGameBrain: "Looks more like he's angry and doesn't care who gets in his
Baltak2: "ye can't trust them though...stupid things probably stole his food
and pissed him off"
Tolmara: With a roar, the next thing you see is the giant hurling a huge
boulder at the nightshade who is unable to dodge in time, and is pinned.
RSwiftblade: "You also have a point"
OnlineHost: Tolmara rolled 2 8-sided dice: 5 6
Tolmara: And dies from the impact.
RSwiftblade: ::slows his attack::
Lunauc: :-D "We win."
NeoGameBrain: ::swallows hard:: "Gods help us."
Lunauc: ::yells up to the hill giant:: "Thank you, Sir!"
Tolmara: The giant glances over in the path's direction, and turns around,
picking up a gray-colored bundle on the ground, then trudges off the plateau
into a passage leading deep into the earth.
NeoGameBrain: "Stay focused, you fool. That thing's only intention is to
kill anything in its path."
Lunauc: :-\ "huh?"
RSwiftblade: "did the dryad mention how to free these folks?"
NeoGameBrain: "...Or maybe not."
RSwiftblade: "He is fleeing...that is good."
Baltak2: "this is the weirdest giant i ever did see, he may be leaving to
hurt the townfolk"
Baltak2: "let's follow him"
NeoGameBrain: ::scratches his head:: "That was odd."
Lunauc: "he left the townsfolk"
Lunauc: (aren't they wandering on the plateau?)
RSwiftblade: "He seems like he is fleeing into the earth. I will not attack
Baltak2: "i agree fer once the stupid thing knows what's good fer it"
NeoGameBrain: "I wonder what it was that he ran off with."
RSwiftblade: ( are the people still in their daze or do we need to release
them from the poison?)
Tolmara: (they seem to shaking off the effects of their daze)
RSwiftblade: "Ye are all free!"
Baltak2: "mebbe the giant was dazed too?"
Tolmara: Shagath: "Merciful Tammara, what are we doing here?"
Tolmara: "How did we get here?
Tolmara: "Gods' blood! It's cold as a rock's teat!"
RSwiftblade: "Ye were all victims of a Nightshade plot, but we have come to

Lunauc: ::asks reiner:: "...the giant was somebody's father? how you know?"
RSwiftblade: "Aye, that is a complication now isn't it?"
Tolmara: Rhian: "I might be able to help, although the effort will leave me
drained for several days." She smiles faintly. "It will still be worth it
RSwiftblade: "The War Father is my lord, my reason for being, my soul
belongs to him."
Lunauc: :-\ "I didn't know you felt that strongly about giants..."
RSwiftblade: "Is there anything I can do to help ye recover Rhian?"
Baltak2: "well let's get these people home rhian...i'm sure they'll allow ye
all the rest ye need"
RSwiftblade: ::gives Lunauc a puzzling look::
Lunauc: (heheheheh.... he's dumb, what can I say?)
Tolmara: Rhian: "If I do help, one of you must agree to be my proxy.
Whoever is to be my proxy will appear to be casting the spell. For certain
reasons, I dare not announce my use of the Pattern."
RSwiftblade: "How about Drenla?"
RSwiftblade: "It would give him some confidence"
Lunauc: ::scratching his stomache:: "Huh?"
Tolmara: Rhian: "And there may be certain repercussions that will follow.
Many of these people may react violently to a mage."
Baltak2: "pattern?...must be more wizard stuff"
NeoGameBrain: "I'll do it, though I should know of the consequences."
Lunauc: :-D "will he grow a tail? i saw that once!"
RSwiftblade: "Can it be assumed that they would react better to a divine
Tolmara: Rhian: "Nothing will happen to you. I will enchant a glamour
which will make it seem as if YOU are casting a spell when instead I will be
performing the magic."
Baltak2: "do what ye gotta do i'm all fer leavin this place"
Tolmara: Rhian: "However, all those who will be affected the magic will see
YOU casting the spell. Only you and I, and your friends will know
otherwise." And she mutters underneath her breath, "anyone who is observing
the Pattern at this
Tolmara: time will also know."
Lunauc: *blink blink*
Tolmara: Rhian: "That might be possible, but none of you are priests of
Illaenth or of Hurishta."
RSwiftblade: "Aye, my father may not approve...you are right wise one"
Tolmara: Rhian: "So, who is to be my proxy? For once I cast the spell,
there is no reversing anything."
Lunauc: :to reiner:: "Well maybe if we went and asked the giant, he'd say
RSwiftblade: "QUIET fool!"
NeoGameBrain: ::steps forward
Baltak2: "why not have the fool be the proxy?"
RSwiftblade: "I will explain sometime to you who is the War Father"
NeoGameBrain: "I shall be your proxy. As a diviner of the Circle, I would
like to think Hurishta looks kindly on me.
Lunauc: ::wants to ask more, but keeps his mouth shut::
NeoGameBrain: "However, I have many questions for you that I expect be
RSwiftblade: "Proceed my lady"
Tolmara: Rhian: "Very well then, Arinth Sconfallow, by the power vested in
me as an Aes Sedai of the Fifth Circle of the Blue Jura, I declare you
sai'dar and channeler. Step forward and grasp my hands."
RSwiftblade: ::sheathes swords::
Lunauc: ::opens mouth to ask what she's talking about, but looks to Reiner
and shuts up::
Baltak2: ::whispers to reiner::"hard to trust these durn wizards ain't it?"
NeoGameBrain: ::to the others:: "Keep the crowd controlled as best you can.
It's rather distracting to have bows firing at your back."
Tolmara: ((the following is for your benefit OOC, but please do not react as
I am describing this for Gautam's character IC and you OOC))
Tolmara: Rhian: "Good. Now, the time for questions will be later. Follow
my instructions and do not deviate from your path. Only one of you is a
natural sai'dar, so he would not need instruction. You on the other hand,
are a stranger to
Tolmara: our order."
NeoGameBrain: ::takes a deep breath as he clears his mind and grasps Rhian's
Tolmara: Rhian: "As you grasp my hands, you will see the Pattern not as a
wealth of threads of magic, but as a living weave of possibilities. It is in
this manner, that we as Aes Sedai and sai'dan, and sorcerers as sai'dar use
Tolmara: Rhian: "I must lay bare to you, a secret of our Order, so that you
will survive the process. Although you may not be unscathed. The process
is....unpredictable at best."
RSwiftblade: ::reiner senses that this spell may be troubling::
Tolmara: Rhian: "Think of an effect that you wish to accomplish."
Lunauc: ::takes a seat, scratching his neck as they speak::
NeoGameBrain: "For us and all the people in this chamber to return to the
Tolmara: Rhian: "Now, focus your thoughts on your own power and the
possibility of accomplishing this task."
Tolmara: Rhian: "As you might suspect, you are not yet powerful enough to
create a dweomer that would enable such a feat. You cannot weave a thread
that would bring about the effect you wish to result."
RSwiftblade: ::Tries to calm the crowd::
Tolmara: Rhian: "I will channel my power to you and augment your own
abilities. State aloud the spell you wish to cast, the cause you wish to
bring about, and the effect it must have."
NeoGameBrain: "There are...too many. They keep moving...so fast."
NeoGameBrain: ::focuses his mind::
Lunauc: "hmm...?" ::watches the casters with great interest::
WyldElfRanger: ((ooc where are we at present?))
NeoGameBrain: ((shit I need a teleport spell ::flips through PHP::
Tolmara: ((ooc: Gautam, in other words, in game terms, tell me what your
character wants to do but keep in mind you're only 2nd level.))
Tolmara: (Rest of the group: The inn''s staff and guests are milling about
confusedly. Some react with excited and hysterical shouts as Arinth begins
glowing with a bright blue light.)
WyldElfRanger: ((I thought I was first level but I'll take the boost. not
much I can do but I'll help keep them safe))
NeoGameBrain: ((Meaning a 9th level spell would be too demanding of me and
Lunauc: ::Suddenly flindches down away from the spell for no real reason::
Tolmara: (Rest of the group: "That's him! That's the wizardly scum who
brought us here! Kill him and we'll awake from this nightmare!")
Tolmara: ((er, I mean 1st level. hehhe))
Baltak2: ::moves to hold off the people::
RSwiftblade: "Please be calm, any one who is bold enough come face me , but
do not disturb for we are freeing you!"
RSwiftblade: (Intimidate was 24)
Tolmara: Rhian: "When all this is over, you will see, I hope with greater
clarity, that with great power comes great sacrifice. Use magic with
respect, not for its own sake, but to aid others."
WyldElfRanger: ::takes out his club and shakes his head:: "Don't make me use
my weapons on you, humans, we are trying to help you."
Tolmara: At that, some of the crowd calms down, although you sense that by
and large, people are uneasy at the sight before them.
NeoGameBrain: ((drat. I need a teleport spell but I can't find one that'll

down from the plateau?)

door to the Shadowrest Inn::

Tolmara: Rhian: "Very good. You've come far along in such a short time. A
pity you're not a channeler....I could train you."
Tolmara: Rhian: "Now, concentrate, as your thoughts become reality."
Baltak2: ((focus daniel san))
Lunauc: ((use the force luke)
Tolmara: Rhian becomes introspective as she focuses her thoughts inward.
You can see that her form grows insubstantial as she pours more and more of
herself into Arinth's form.
Lunauc: (concentrate you must, appear the portal will)
Lunauc: (to taco bell make the portal go. the munchies yoda has)
NeoGameBrain: ::focuses on the image, filling in minute detail after detail,
making the vision seem as real as if it were right in front of them::
Tolmara: Between the two of them, as Arinth glows brighter and brighter and
Rhian grows more and more ethereal, suddenly, there is a bright blue
shimmering portal, through which you can see the inn of Hawk's Shadowrest.
RSwiftblade: "GO Through!"
Lunauc: =-O "Whoooooaaawww...."
Tolmara: Rhian: "I....I....cannot transfer much more, or else I shall cease
Baltak2: "wow.. I guess we run through now?!?"
RSwiftblade: "Steadily and orderly now!"
Lunauc: ::stands and gets ready to go::
RSwiftblade: "Quickly, quickly and mind the person next to you."
Tolmara: Instead there is a mad rush through the gate, hesitantly at first,
and then its as if the gates of heaven burst forth.
Baltak2: ::helps herd villagers thru in an orderly manner::
NeoGameBrain: "HURRY. THIS CANNOT LAST LONG."
RSwiftblade: "Be careful"
Baltak2: ::plows his own way thru gate at sound of that::
RSwiftblade: ::helps villagers allong::
Tolmara: Rhian: "I....I..."
Tolmara: She breaks off contact and collapses in Arinth's arms.
Tolmara: The gate begins to flicker wildly.

Tolmara: Rhian: "I thank you. I cannot maintain the portal for much
longer, but I can at least shepherd you through."
Lunauc: "ok" ::hands her over to the priest:
NeoGameBrain: ::smiles as he hurries on:: "Nice try. But I've got orders
to keep an eye on you."
Tolmara: The portal flickers ever more wildly.
RSwiftblade: ::slings her over his shoulder::
RSwiftblade: "Come on" Makes a dash for the portal::
Lunauc: ::looks worried as he runs for the gate, looking back to make sure
no one's left::
NeoGameBrain: "Alright." ::full speed run::
RSwiftblade: (he is still unencumbered and runs at 40')
Tolmara: As soon as the rest of you emerge through the portal, the gate
slams shut just as soon as Rhian lets out a sigh and falls limp in Reiner's
RSwiftblade: ::checks to see if she is dead ::
Baltak2: "everyone ok?"
RSwiftblade: If not...cure light wounds::
Lunauc: ::pushes himself up after falling face first out of the gate::
NeoGameBrain: ::turns suddenly to Rhian:: Quickly. We must get her bed. I
need healers now."
RSwiftblade: ::looks at Arinth:: "She is dead"
WyldElfRanger: ::makes his way for the portal as makes sure the inn people
go before him::
Baltak2: "durn shame ::says a silent prayer for her in thanks::"
RSwiftblade: "There is nothing I can do for her...she is a martyr."
NeoGameBrain: ::checks the woman, desperately scanning for a magic aura::
Lunauc: :-\ ::looks around at them confused:: "Who's dead?"
Lunauc: "huh?" ::stares off into space::
NeoGameBrain: ::sits there, thinking frantically::
WyldElfRanger: "Let's go then, make not her sacrifice in vain be"
RSwiftblade: "Are you sick boy? Or are you just naturally that way?"
Lunauc: ::scratching his head, ignoring the others:: "Oh... yeah.... so

about the stupidity of humans::

think the other's will be happy"
NeoGameBrain: ::barely hears the praise:: "It wasn't really me. Not
really. I'm just a pion. A fool.."
Baltak2: "don't underestimate yerself lad ye did good"
NeoGameBrain: ::walks off to think::
Lunauc: :-( "Oh..." ::looking down for a moment, he suddenly looks up and
asks:: "Oh if you're going there... can you say hi to my dad and ol' Baggus.
I haven't seen them in a long time."
Lunauc: 0.o "Huh?"
Baltak2: ::shakes his head at Lun's PC::
Lunauc: "Oh yeah!
Lunauc: "One more thing!"
Lunauc: "You want me to tell the others anything?"
NeoGameBrain: ::stops and glances at the young sorceror curiously::

Lunauc: "Cyrdenna... okay."
RSwiftblade: ::goes towards the inn with Rhian in his arms::

even sure you guys know my name)

around for someone:: :-[ "Bye Lady..."

Tolmara: You emerged from the gate, as the guests return to the inn and
hurry inside, shivering from the cold. Many remark that their trips will be
delayed as they recover from being sick by the cold.

NeoGameBrain: ::smiles as he begins to realize something::
RSwiftblade: "I see"
OnlineHost: NeoGameBrain rolled 1 20-sided die: 6
Baltak2: "reiner, we have weird companions me friend"
Lunauc: "Oh, yeah... and she said to go see her sister Cyrdenna about some
White jura peson you're lookiung for."

RSwiftblade: "And where is she?"
Lunauc: :-( "She went to see lady death..."
RSwiftblade: "No Cyrdenna"

Baltak2: ::takes a long pull on whiskey jug and passes it to reiner::

drink that much of it though..."
Baltak2: "more fer me then"::takes another long pull before corking it::
RSwiftblade: "What do we do with Rhian's body. I am only able to officiate
of those who belong to the War Father"
Lunauc: "I don't think the giant would mind. he seemed nice enough."

Baltak2: "nice giant...there's a strange term"
NeoGameBrain: ::smiles as he pats Morti on the shoulder:: "I think I'm
beginning to understand. We shall have a talk later."
Lunauc: ::cocks his head at arinth:: "Ummm.... okay...."
Tolmara: (xp will be given out at the end of this session)
RSwiftblade: "Arinth, what is going on here and what do I do with her? This
is more your realm than mine."
Baltak2: "and what is with this Morti kid?"
Tolmara: (you're back in the inn, btw, I assume.)
RSwiftblade: ::Lays Rhian down with respect::

afk and... )

can you guide me?

doubt it would do her sister much comfort either."
Lunauc: (::wrapps an arm arounf your shoulder and cries)
Baltak2: "well let's bury her here and let her sister know there was no way
to bring her to tolmara"
NeoGameBrain: "I'll do what I can, but I'm no priest.

NeoGameBrain: "Yes. That would be best."

around him as he wonders what the dryad might have wanted to speak with him

burried near a large oak tree?)

what you did, my boy....but I do have reservations about taking in a wizard
of such power among us...."
Baltak2: "we'll be responsible for him shagath"
RSwiftblade: "It is more protection fer you"
Tolmara: Xavick: "Tarth, Shagath and I have been thinkin' that perhaps it
might not be a good idea fer us to have ye all the way beyond Wintershivven."

cider, then turns back:: "Yup... he's a good witch."

just that word travels fast, ye know? And soon, we'll be in Wintershivven.
We jest dun' want to have to deal with talk behind our backs and all."

more cider. lady Rhian told me so."

to take another sip of cider::

RSwiftblade: "Maybe, ye should stick to the milk punch"
NeoGameBrain: ((the funeral, I mean.))
Baltak2: "or mama's milk"::chuckling::
Lunauc: (kinda hard to tell ain't it? since we're sitting around drink, I'd
say we've moved inside)
RSwiftblade: (I asked stan if we could fast forward)
Tolmara: (I'm assuming that you're held a brief ceremony when you got to the
inn, and the earth burial/vigil will be tonight. the details aren't

Baltak2: ((sounds good here))
Tolmara: Tarth: "Very well. We'll go to Wintershivven in a few days, after
we get over this cold. In Wintershivven, we won't be expectin' ye to keep up
wid' us, so ye can go off an' do what ye like while we're there.

points south. We'll be spendin' some time in the City of the Diamond
Citadel, and then hope to move to Highkeep afterwards."

worrying about your contract. If anything, we'll have less trouble to worry

Baltak2: "that sounds fair by me reckoning"
WyldElfRanger: ((grrr, my computer is starting to annoy me))
AlexPetrovich99: "I just want to get drunk tonight and forget about the
unpleasantness of the day.. anyone with me on that ??"
Lunauc: "Diamond Citadel.... sounds familiar" :Shrug:
NeoGameBrain: "Look at it this way. Your wares must be pretty valuable if
it requires such powerful folk to protect them."

it can wait. Our noses can't."

you stupid fool."

thought it should be in the log.))

the room, playing them like a fiddle to a violin.)

you on the path."

the best path :D)

has to put his feet on the ground before he can start walking."

Where you go from there is up to you."

I'll be your loyal student then!" ::Salutes awkwardly::

believe the Lady would have prefered it this way."

tries to engage the girl in conversation/seduction::

up the stairs?)

ever present scarf::

RSwiftblade: "Why do ye wear that scarf?"

waits for his breakfast::

should go for his mission.::

Baltak2: ::starts mumblin about wizards and their weird ways and eats
Lunauc: "Huh?" ::looks up at reiner, then returns arinth:: "Good Morning"
RSwiftblade: "Aye, good morning so why do you wear that scarf?"
Tolmara: Breakfast are warm baked oat and rye rolls, sweet butter, pumpkin
and walnut butter, elderberry preserves, Berondt cheese, pork and fig
scrapple, milk, ale, wellwater and firewine.
Lunauc: :: puts his head back down on his folded arms, idly kicking the bar:

Tolmara: (We can break in 30 minutes.)

before going on his way keeping in mind where he needs to go."
Baltak2: ::just eats food and minds his business... nursing monstrous dwarf
sized hangover that has excedrin all over it::

He'll be traveling with us to Tolmara as my new apprentice."

me...don't want any loose cannons out there"

find this place of which the dryad spoke."

but I believe he'll prove useful to our cause."

doesn't ask him right now::

us up like a certain nasaly mage I know."

I have potential to build!"

and needs to do as he keeps an eye on his traveling companions::
Baltak2: "why not?"
NeoGameBrain: ::to Reiner:: "Between you and me, the boy has powers similar
to Rhian's but doesn't know how to realize them. Without even some
rudimentry training, he could be a great danger to everyone."

in his mouth"

Baltak2: "as ye say Arinth since ye know more in these matters than I but
keep a short leash on him will ye?"

Their powers don't work like mine."

things in his mind. going over to the others.:: "I received a visit from the
dryad we rescued yesterday."
Baltak2: "I'm willin to take ye at yer word Arinth"

quiet. Let people have to guess about him."
RSwiftblade: "Aye, well elf, what did she say to you?"
Lunauc: ::having not heard a word about himself, he does pick up on the
elf's declaration: Chewing a mouthful of bread under his scarf he looks back
RSwiftblade: ::laughs:: "was this before or after she danced apon your lap!
WyldElfRanger: "Well certain things aside she told where to next find
information on a trapped Aes Sendai that requires freeing. We would travle to
the City of the Citadel and from there receve further instruction."
RSwiftblade: "Aye we will go there soon. "
NeoGameBrain: "Hmm...interesting. Seems everybody but the damned caravan
operators knows about our mission."
RSwiftblade: "It must all be part of the master plan of the gods"
Baltak2: "isn't that always the way?"
NeoGameBrain: "Tell me. Did she happen to explain why she stranded us with
a hill giant and no way out save Rhian's sacrifice."
RSwiftblade: "I fight, I heal and I preach...that is all I know"
WyldElfRanger: "She has found out because she is of the fey and they are in
communication on certain things. But we have more direction than we had."
WyldElfRanger: "She used what energy she could spare to send us to that
place. She still is not fully recovered."

Tolmara: Xavick (between mouthfuls): "As we were sayin' afore, last night,
the Silent Network will be yer bane, when ye're in Tolmara and points south."
Tolmara: Tarth: "Aye. They'd be wiped out from Wylund, on edict of His
Majesty, but fer the role they played in resisting the Kernin invasion thirty
Baltak2: "what is this Silent Network ye speak of.. I have a hazy memory of
ye mentioning that last night?"
RSwiftblade: "Aye, I have heard of them. Stories travel where I am from
Tolmara: Tarth: "An' the fact that their guildhouse sits in the shadow of
Castle Falconedge don't escape many eyes or ears, fer that matter."
RSwiftblade: (do they still look as though they are sick?)
Tolmara: Xavick: "So, perhaps, master priest of the mountains, ye have
heard much about the worship of the dead master thieves of Tolmara? Fer they
walk the streets as well as any god o' yours."
Tolmara: (yes, actually)
Tolmara: (but they're getting better slowly)

Baltak2: "by Kranchaar that's an amusing story"
RSwiftblade: "I do not like rogues, shadows or the like, but will deal with
whatever comes my way, by the will of the War Father"
Tolmara: Xavick: "The Silent Network is a guild o' thieves that is based
mainly in Tolmara and in Highkeep so the shadows whisper. But they work
their deeds elsewhere, such as in Whytsun. Most honest folk don't have tae
worry about them,

them stinkin' rogue tithes, an' that's where ye come in."
Lunauc: ::Listens with great interest over the stories of thieves::
NeoGameBrain: "Nah..." ::continues to listen::

Father will alarm me of such treachery"

off...that's how we deal with such scum"

others had against the hill giant. looks to arinth:: "Hm?"
Tolmara: Drenla: "Th...th...the f--f--first rule of wizardry is never to

his head in his hands and weeps quietly.
