Lunauc:            (cool)

Tolmara:           (log is open)

RSwiftblade:     (Is there a vessel that can hold water in the room?)

Tolmara:           (hold for room description)

AlexPetrovich99:           ::looks for dirt or water to try to put out the fire::

AlexPetrovich99:           (whops.sorry)

Tolmara:           As before, the door to this room was smashed.  A line of bellpulls

is attached to the NE wall.  In the center of the chamber stands a polished

table with chairs.  Two cabinets stand against the walls.

Tolmara:           The cabinets are closed.

Tolmara:           There is a half-eaten corpse of a small donkey lying next to the

creature's body.

Tolmara:           A white tablecloth lies crumpled in the corner of the room.

Tolmara:           There doesn't seem to be anything sufficient in size to hold water,

although you recall having seen a washtub in the kitchen.

Tolmara:           (end)

Lunauc:            (quick, use the beast's corpse to beat out the flame!!)

Lunauc:            (hehe)

Trayn of Solnor:            "darn it that flame is getting out of control"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::looks for dirt/water to put it out with::

Lunauc:            :-( "Uh... oh.... didn't know it was that strong..."

RSwiftblade:     "Go get that washtub in the kitchen"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::runs for the tub::

AlexPetrovich99:           ::fills it and returns::

Trayn of Solnor:            leaves and looks for a tapestry or rug to smother the


Tolmara:           (it's actually fairly large and heavy, but you manage to get it to

the room)

RSwiftblade:     ::joins Je'rar:: On the count of three we will empty the water

onto the flame"

Lunauc:            ::takes a look around the room, quickly finding the table cloth and

tries to beat down the flames while they retrieve the tub::

AlexPetrovich99:           "On 1,..

AlexPetrovich99:           2...

Trayn of Solnor:            "we could wet a tapestry or something and then smother the

flames" as he looks

AlexPetrovich99:           3"

RSwiftblade:     "Wait"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::holds in mid-motion::

RSwiftblade:     "Ok Trayn, give it a shot"

RSwiftblade:     "How about with the table cloth?"

Lunauc:            ::keeps beating at the fire with said table cloth... oblivious::

RSwiftblade:     "Morti, give trayn the table cloth"

Trayn of Solnor:            "dunk it in the water"

Trayn of Solnor:            he does this himself

Tolmara:           (Eventually you manage to get the fire under control.)

Lunauc:            "Huh?" ::Stops to look back at the others upon hearing his nameand

tosses the cloth to trayn::

Lunauc:            (and that ends todays chinese fire drill)

RSwiftblade:     ::pats morti on back and smiles:: "Always expect the unexpected

with young Mortimer..." ::laughs::

Tolmara:           A moment later, the flames are suddenly extinguished as runes

embedded in the floor and ceiling glimmer for a second before fading away.

Trayn of Solnor:            "hmmm what was that?"

Lunauc:             :-\  ::glances nervously up at the laughing barbarian::

RSwiftblade:     ::stops laughing:: "What was that?"

Lunauc:            "Alchemists fire"

Trayn of Solnor:            "no the flashing.. I think it was magical runes"

Lunauc:            ::strolling away afew steps to look about the room, not really

wanting to be chastized::

RSwiftblade:     "Drenla do ye have an idea what that was? It seems to be a

glyph of some sort"

Lunauc:            "Huh?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Um, uhmmm....er..., I think the tower m..m..might be

w-warded against th-the elements."

RSwiftblade:     "Good....I agree, thank you"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "It would make sense of c-c-course.  We are in a

w-w-wizard''s tower and his home."

RSwiftblade:     ::smiles at the wizard::

Trayn of Solnor:            "maybe... or its something else... I guess we won't know

until we see it again"

RSwiftblade:     "Well where do we go next Trayn?"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Wizard stuff...." I mutter

Lunauc:            ::Scratching at his neck, shrugs at the consideration that at least

it keeps fools from burning down the man's home::

Trayn of Solnor:            "we go to rest... I am out of spells"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Rest in here? Hmph!"

RSwiftblade:     "Aye seems like a good idea"

Trayn of Solnor:            (at least i think i am)

AlexPetrovich99:           "Reiner..we better take up watches.. I dislike this foul


Lunauc:            ::glancing to the priest, thinks, 'wouldn't it be a bad idea to  let

this killer mummy thing live longer though' ::

Trayn of Solnor:            "finding a bedroom would be nice... or some couches"

RSwiftblade:     "I will take the first watch with Je'rar"

Lunauc:            0.0 "You want to sleep here?"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Picky,aren't we?" laughs for a few seconds if that

RSwiftblade:     "Is that ok with you?"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I'm fine ith that,but you and I might want to take

diferent watches, as we're the only two here adept at combat"

AlexPetrovich99:           (at least,I'm guesing so; I don't really know much about


Trayn of Solnor:            "being alerted will be enough for all of us to defend each


RSwiftblade:     "Now, now, we are all capable in our own ways"

Lunauc:            ::Looks around at them dumbfounded::

RSwiftblade:     "Well shall we move this beast or ourselves to another


Trayn of Solnor:            "move ourselves.. this is not a comfortable room"

RSwiftblade:     "The corps will start to stink in several hours"

RSwiftblade:     e

RSwiftblade:     "By the way Je'rar, you were fine in combat against that beast"

Trayn of Solnor:            "downstairs will be adequate"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Reiner..before we rest,care to spar a little; I know

you've mentioned getting to learn using the two-weapon attack like I use"

Lunauc:            ::moves back away from the conversation, rolling some things over in

his mind about their decision to rest::

AlexPetrovich99:           "and..thanks"

Lunauc:            :-[

RSwiftblade:     "Well lets find a place for the others are not comfortable


RSwiftblade:     "Trayn, where do you suggest?"

Lunauc:            ::timidly, he mutters:: "What about the witch?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "the main floor.."

RSwiftblade:     "In due time Morti..."

RSwiftblade:     "We will follow your lead..."

AlexPetrovich99:           "I don't think we'll find her here Morti,and I think we're

really going to need the priest's powers when we confront the mummy"

Lunauc:            "But.... that thing... said she was hurt..."

AlexPetrovich99:           "Best we deal with the immediate threat first"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::walkso ff to the side of Morti::

AlexPetrovich99:           :soft voice; "It's ok, ~ we'll save her"

RSwiftblade:     "We cannot save her if our abilities are spent young one...we

must rest"

AlexPetrovich99:           :clasps his back and gives him a firm pat

Lunauc:            ::biting his lip to steel himself speaks more confidently than

usual:: "And what if she is here, hurt and scared? We're suppose to just

leave her waiting?"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::walks of to spar with Reiner for a little while::

Trayn of Solnor:            ((well if my notes are correct i do have one more healing


AlexPetrovich99:           "Morti.if we're too banged up, we might not be able to help

her anyway"

RSwiftblade:     ((I have some healing spells))

Lunauc:            "But what if we're too late?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "I've reconsidered.. we should come to the aid of this


RSwiftblade:     "Morti, we have no fate but the fate we are given"

AlexPetrovich99:           [ ummguys? I have to go and pick my ball and chain from

work at 9; I'll have to leave around 8:30ish so I can get the kids dresed and

in the car]

Trayn of Solnor:            "regardless of the dangers it may bring to us"

RSwiftblade:     (Stan how many hours are we going on?)

Tolmara:           (8:30 is fine then.)

RSwiftblade:     (Stan...are we tired?)

Tolmara:           (I was hoping to do until 9, but if Mike has to leave, then he has

to leave.)

Tolmara:           ((speak for yourself Alfred))

RSwiftblade:     ((no no in game))

RSwiftblade:     (is the party tired)

Lunauc:            (we've only been in the house an hour or so, and I doubt that long


Lunauc:            (seems a little silly to take nap time)

Tolmara:           (well it is about 4 in the morning.  remember you decided to check

out his tower the evening of the day you received your commission as

constables of Wintershivven.)

RSwiftblade:     ((So we are DEFINATELY tired))

Trayn of Solnor:            ((we are deadbeat tired))

RSwiftblade:     "No no...I am quite tired and would like to rest"

Lunauc:            "Fine then. you rest."

Lunauc:            :: heads back toward the kitchen::

RSwiftblade:     (We can rest for about six hours)

AlexPetrovich99:           "Morti?"

RSwiftblade:     "Are you not tired Morti...it is about 4 in the morning"

Lunauc:            (ok, but yer not gonna get morti to stop, he's not very sensable)

AlexPetrovich99:           "I suggest you don't go out of sight; I'd hate to see you

get jumped by something and not have the time for us to be able to save you"

Lunauc:            "I've gone days without sleeping before, one night isn't gonna kill


RSwiftblade:     ::pulls out manacles from backpack:: "Are you going to force me

to use these?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "well I shall pray for the woman... that she can hold until

we find her.. let us rest"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I suppose we could always conk you over the head.."

Lunauc:            ::freezes at the sight of the manacles, trembling a bit as he goes


AlexPetrovich99:           :chuckles,making sure Morti sees he's not being overly


RSwiftblade:     "Come here and find a spot on the floor ...you need yer rest"

Tolmara:           (I'm going to fast forward until the morning, btw.)

Lunauc:            ::shakes his head looking away:: "I don't need to sleep. I need to

find her, before we can't help her." :'(

Tolmara:           ((but feel free to RP as much as you care to.))

Trayn of Solnor:            ((would heal someone injured before he sleeps/takes watch))

Lunauc:            (dang, can't leave the kitten upstairs either)

Trayn of Solnor:            looks around for the injured...

RSwiftblade:     ::sternly::"Sit down and take some sleep"

RSwiftblade:     "I can see that you are tired....now do not be difficult morti"

AlexPetrovich99:           (umm hety Stan..roll-call of the injured and wounded?)

Lunauc:            ::glances to the doorm then back to reiner, and the manacles

dangling in his hand. still trembling at the sight of them, he turns away,

wearily nodding as he takes a seat to rest::

RSwiftblade:     ::turns to the rest of the party:: "Who is injured here?"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::checks himself over::

AlexPetrovich99:           ...........

RSwiftblade:     "Thank you, morti...we will continue after we have slept"

AlexPetrovich99:           [read: can't find the bloody sheet I was using last week to

keep track of that]

Lunauc:            (jer'ar mostly I'd say)

Tolmara:           ((if we went by last session, Je'rar is within a few hit points of

being knocked unconscious.  Not sure who else.  In any event, Dantrag is in

player limbo.))

Trayn of Solnor:            /me cures Je'rar before resting

AlexPetrovich99:           "I'm leaking a little.." grins weakly

OnlineHost:       Trayn of Solnor rolled 1 8-sided die:  8

Trayn of Solnor:            ((11 hps healing))

AlexPetrovich99:           ((whoohoo oh yeah!))

AlexPetrovich99:           "Thanks..at least I'm not feeling like I'm about to fall

over now"

RSwiftblade:     "Je'rar, let me help as well"

OnlineHost:       RSwiftblade rolled 1 8-sided die:  8

AlexPetrovich99:           "Thank-you my brother"

RSwiftblade:     11pts

Trayn of Solnor:            gives two minor spells to the slightly injured (two 1 hps

each for Trayn's minions)

Trayn of Solnor:            : )

AlexPetrovich99:           ::checks himself to see if all of my wounds have in fact

been healed::

Lunauc:            ::reaches into his pocket for something to eat, and finds the

caramel treat that reiner'd given him, which he'd shared with...:: "The


Trayn of Solnor:            ::takes a watch and sleeps::

RSwiftblade:     "Give thanks to the War Father for his gift of healing"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::looks him solemnly in the eye::

Lunauc:            ::spends the time trying to sleep, somewhat unsuccessfully as he

worries over the witch and the cat::

AlexPetrovich99:           "Yes"

RSwiftblade:     "So show me how you do it....I have practiced but cannot get

the two hands to work well together"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::gives prayer to the WarFather,trying to emulate the

prayers that he's heard Reiner use::

RSwiftblade:     "My father taught me this style, but I have never really

perfected it"

RSwiftblade:     brb

Tolmara:           In the morning, you wake, gagging to the sickly sweet odor of

rotting flesh.  It's not quite strong, perhaps because you're not at the

source of the stench, but still, it carries from several feet away.

Tolmara:           ((I'm assuming you holed up for the night in the kitchen or in the

entry chamber at the foot of the stairs.))

Lunauc:            ::having bee awake for a while, still sitting in the same spot, not

daring to move as the manacles still sat out, watches a couple of the others

wake up to the stench::

Lunauc:            ((that would be the sensible thing.... lets go with that))

Tolmara:           ((so what now?))

Trayn of Solnor:            ::prays::

Lunauc:            ::submissively waits for them to rise and decide what to do, hoping

thy'll search for the girl::

Trayn of Solnor:            "lets ready ourselves and journey to the top of the tower"

Trayn of Solnor:            "I am nearly ready"

Tolmara:           ((ok))

AlexPetrovich99:           "Ok..is evrybody all set?" ::checks his weapons and gear::

Lunauc:            (go back up, when we haven't finished downstairs?"

Lunauc:            )

RSwiftblade:     back

RSwiftblade:     ::Prays::

RSwiftblade:     "Aye::

Trayn of Solnor:            ((downstairs can wait))

AlexPetrovich99:           "Reiner..a few quick pointers on the 2-weapon technique?"

RSwiftblade:     "Ok"

Lunauc:            ((::shrug::))

Lunauc:            ((heh... forgot that makes a smilry face)

RSwiftblade:     ::swings and shows his technique to Je'rar"

RSwiftblade:     :

AlexPetrovich99:           "Hmm.. hold your left hand higher..its a bit too low for

any suden counters and thrusts"

RSwiftblade:     "Ah...good...that makes sense...feels better too"

Lunauc:            (so are we in the kitchen now?)

Tolmara:           You emerge from the cellar entry way and climb to the tower

library.  When you get to the spiral staircase leading to the library, you

spot the tabby curled up at the foot of the steps.

Lunauc:            (guess not)

RSwiftblade:     ::smiles::"Thank you my brother...that might just work"

Tolmara:           ((I'm moving things along folks.))

RSwiftblade:     ((ok))

AlexPetrovich99:           "You're very welcome..anything to help a fellow follower of

the warFather"

Lunauc:            ::seeing the cat, the dour mood he'd held out night seems to lift,

as he hurries to the animal, kneling beisde it:: "Hey, yer alright"

Tolmara:           It wakes up with a plaintive meow.

Tolmara:           It sniffs the air for a second and purrs, rubbing up against

Morti's leg.

Lunauc:            :-)  "Hehe... I was worried about you." ::holding out a bit of his

rations from his pocket::

Tolmara:           IT nibbles on the rations a bit.

Lunauc:            ::picks the animal up carefulwhile feeding it and looks back to the


Trayn of Solnor:            "where is that witch per se... lets continue looking"

Trayn of Solnor:            "she sounded like she was in trouble to me"

Lunauc:            ::under his breath:: "Then maybe we should've looked for her


RSwiftblade:     ::pulls out a piece of dried venison and starts to eat

it::"Right behind you...(smack smack)... Drenla would you like a piece of

venison...tis flavouful and spicy"

RSwiftblade:     "Je'rar ?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Er..no, thank y-y-you."

AlexPetrovich99:           "Hmm..sure" smiles:

Tolmara:           You emerge into the tower library.  The globe of light is still


Trayn of Solnor:            "its a nice cat... but let stay on task if we can"

Lunauc:            ::follows behind the others up into the library::

RSwiftblade:     (the taste is sweet with a hint of garlic, pepper, rosemary and


Tolmara:           In the far off corner of the room is a spiral staircase that leads


AlexPetrovich99:           "Mmm very tasty Reiner..thanks"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Is that Garlic? Good stuff"

Lunauc:            ::looking around the books, murmurs:: "I should probably read some

of these. Arinth said I should learn more."

RSwiftblade:     "We can let the others do the investigative work"

Lunauc:            ::letting the animal down on the ground, as he gets his crossbow

ready:: "We're going up now, right?"

RSwiftblade:     "Well TRayn what are ya waitin fer?

AlexPetrovich99:           ::holds his weapons at the ready,making sure his armor is

on and well-fitted::

RSwiftblade:     "

Trayn of Solnor:            "to get us all collected... lets go"

RSwiftblade:     "we are here"

Trayn of Solnor:            ::goes up the staircase::

Tolmara:           (hold for room description)

Lunauc:            ::leaving a piece of jerked beef with the cat give it final stroke,

warining:: "Stay here. we'll be back" ::Follows upstairs::

Tolmara:           The stairs from the library rise 50' into a circular chamber

constructed entirely out of gray stone.  There appears to be no other exit

from the chamber.  In the middle of the floor, which is smooth and otherwise

featureless, is a

Tolmara:           large circle of what seems to be powdered jewel dust that has been

sprinkled into the stone itself.  In the center of the circle is a gray stone

pedestal on top of which is a shining, glowing glass sphere.

Tolmara:           Lying next to the pedestal is the unconscious body of a middle-aged

human man in golden brown robes.

Tolmara:           (end)

Lunauc:            ::blinking dumbly:: "Well that looks important"

Trayn of Solnor:            "heh"

Lunauc:            ::then looking down at the man, "You don't think he's the witch...

do you?" ::a bit more dumbly::

Trayn of Solnor:            "well this is unexpected"

RSwiftblade:     "what is this? "

RSwiftblade:     "Any thoughts Trayn...Drenla?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "well regardless... lets wake him up... if he's lucky

enough to be sleeping"

Lunauc:            ::strolls over, careful to stay outside of the circle, looking the

scene over, calling to the man:: "Uh... are you alive?"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I wonder hat that dust is for?"

Tolmara:           Drenla (eyes narrowed):  "Something strange about all of this."

AlexPetrovich99:           *whatthat

RSwiftblade:     "I would not touch it if I were you Je'rar"

Tolmara:           Drenla (murmuring):  "Hm."

Lunauc:            ::scratches his head::

Lunauc:            "Drenla. can I borrow your stick?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "yes this smells of strange magic"

Tolmara:           He taps his staff on the floor of the chamber and peers around, as

if searching for something.

AlexPetrovich99:           "I didn't plan to.." ::steps well awayfrom the whole


RSwiftblade:     "What say you Drenla?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "I...I...I think the sphere contains the answer, but do

not look t-t-too closely."

Lunauc:            "Is it safe to enter the circle?"

OnlineHost:       RSwiftblade rolled 1 20-sided die:  1

Trayn of Solnor:            "well I shall enter the circle if it is desired"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "That would depend on who you are."  He glances at Je'rar.

"For him and the horselord, it's safe.  In fact, safer."

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "I think I shall not."

Lunauc:            "huh?"

RSwiftblade:     "Is it a magical weapon?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "The sphere is a scrying device.  It's what the sphere

shows that worries me."

RSwiftblade:     "What does it show Drenla?"

OnlineHost:       Tolmara rolled 1 20-sided die:  7

Lunauc:            "oh.... is that what the short guy wanted?" ::thiking for a second::

"Or did he want the dinnerware?"

Tolmara:           The mage does not answer you, instead his gaze is fixed onto the

crystal sphere which seems to be shimmering brighter than before.  You can

spot beads of sweat forming on his brow.

Trayn of Solnor:            "hmm he is entranced by it"

OnlineHost:       Tolmara rolled 1 20-sided die:  3

RSwiftblade:     ::shakes Drenla::

Lunauc:            ::pokes Drenla in the side:: "Hey, did he want that or the


Trayn of Solnor:            "by the sphere"

RSwiftblade:     "Snap out of it"

Lunauc:            "Huh?"

Trayn of Solnor:            ::walks forward and interposes his shield with the mans

gaze on the sphere::

Tolmara:           With a scream, Drenla buckles to the ground, letting go of his

staff and collapses, unconscious.

AlexPetrovich99:           ""goes to drag Drenla away::

Lunauc:            "Drenla?!"

Tolmara:           His staff falls to the floor and the light inside the sphere atop

the staff dies.

Tolmara:           The crystal sphere atop the pedestal glows even brighter than


Lunauc:            ::looks to the sphere nervously:: "Wha-what...?"

RSwiftblade:     ::Concentrates around the room::

Trayn of Solnor:            ::checks on Drenla's health"

RSwiftblade:     "There is great evil within the sphere"  ::Reiner holds his

head as he says that::

Lunauc:            "Should we break it?"

RSwiftblade:     "It is quite painful actually"

Trayn of Solnor:            "he is barely alive"

Lunauc:            ::looks back to drenla, worried::

Lunauc:            ::then down at his staff, the life apparently gone from it as well::

RSwiftblade:     "arggg...it is that black pearl....the thief is dead... and

there arebones everywhere"

Trayn of Solnor:            ::heals the man::

Lunauc:            "What're you talking about?"

Lunauc:            :-\

OnlineHost:       Trayn of Solnor rolled 1 20-sided die:  6

RSwiftblade:     "Morti...arggg...do not look within...it is dangerous for your


Lunauc:            "Within whah?"

Lunauc:            "uh.... okay"

RSwiftblade:     "It has an evil that I have never encountered before....very


Lunauc:            "So we should break it then?"

RSwiftblade:     "It spies on us as we stand here...."

Trayn of Solnor:            "he is ok... at least physically"

RSwiftblade:     ::removes his cloak::

Trayn of Solnor:            "cover that sphere... if we can"

RSwiftblade:     ::throws it over the skying device::

OnlineHost:       Tolmara rolled 1 20-sided die:  2

Lunauc:            ::looks around confused for a second:: "Um... is hearing that thing

talk a bad sign?"

RSwiftblade:     "Yes it is"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I think we should destroy this thing,but how to do it?"

Tolmara:           Morti glances at the sphere for just a split second, and in

response the sphere flares a bright light....and then cracks and shatters.

Trayn of Solnor:            "i could try a few things... I have no idea if they will


Trayn of Solnor:            "or... leave it ot Morti"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Morti..what the hell did you just do man?"

Lunauc:            ::flinches at the sudden destruction:: "Uh.... nothin"

RSwiftblade:     ::looks at the other mage::

Lunauc:            "I didn't even look at it, not really. reiner told me not to."

RSwiftblade:     "War Father, there is foul magic at work here...give me the

strength to resist the evil!"

RSwiftblade:     ::checks on Drenla and the robed figure::

Trayn of Solnor:            "well search around here for the woman... she may be

secreted someplace"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Yes"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::starts earching ,methodically::

Lunauc:            ::moves over to pick up drenla's staff, hoping not to get hurt by it

so he can bring it over to the wounded mag::

Tolmara:           (Je'rar, Search check)

Lunauc:            (it didn't seem to power down, so to speak, right?)

Tolmara:           (yes)

Lunauc:            ::brings the staff over and lies it beside the unconcious mage,

placing his hand on it,

Lunauc:            "Know it's important to ya"

Tolmara:           As you recover from your state of shock, you spot the image of a

middle-aged man in golden brown robes rise up from the body of the mage by

the pedestal.

Trayn of Solnor:            "Holy Solnor!" he states in shock

RSwiftblade:     "Aye Drenla, I will save you"

OnlineHost:       AlexPetrovich99 rolled 1 20-sided die:  10

Tolmara:           The image glances around the room and gazes at the tabby fondly,

moments after the tabby enters the room.

Lunauc:            "Heh?" ::suddenly looks up to the man::

AlexPetrovich99:           11

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Thank you, friends for coming to my aid, even

though it is too late for me."

RSwiftblade:     "We are sorry that we could not have been here sooner"

Trayn of Solnor:            ::curses politely::

Lunauc:            ::cocks his head in confusion, whispers to trayn:: "Who's he?"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::motions to Trayn and Reiner to do the talking,as they're

both priests::

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Do not trouble yourselves too much, for as a

friend of yours likes to say, you have no fate but the Fate you are born


RSwiftblade:     "Would you like us to administer last rights over your body?"

Trayn of Solnor:            ((examples: holes in my cheese! ... well if i didn't just

stub my toe..))

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Yes, of course, but I have things to pass on to

you before I depart for the next life."

RSwiftblade:     "Aye, we are listening"

Lunauc:            "Its not gas is it?"

Lunauc:            "My Brother use to make that joke"

RSwiftblade:     ::sternly to Morti:: "Ye must have respect for the dead Morti"

Trayn of Solnor:            "we are listening.. I'll try not to be sorry for your Fate

as you have requested"

Lunauc:            :-\ "Dead?"

RSwiftblade:     "This is a spirit we speak with..."

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "I was prevented from passing on to the next life

by the creature that inhabits the pearl that you spied within the sphere.

Lunauc:            ::takes a moment, but finally realizes:: "Oh... like Rhian"

RSwiftblade:     "A  very evil being indeed"

Tolmara:           It is a creature that seeks to feed on magic, but not the magic of

priests and clergy.  It seeks to feed on magic from wizards and arcane


Trayn of Solnor:            ::shows respect for the spirit and builds disgust for the


Tolmara:           It is however, vulnerable to certain types of magic, such as those

from sorcerers and channelers.  Channelers such as an Aes Sedai."

Lunauc:            "You mean like the witch?! You know where she is?"

RSwiftblade:     ::looks at morti and understands why he was not affected::

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "I was doing research at the command of the

Master of the Citadel.  I had sent another adventuring party on a

fact-finding mission, and also because I had need of a spell component.

Tolmara:           They were to investigate an area known as the Killing Keep, the

name of a dungeon not far from here.  I had heard that within the dungeon

resided a creature with powers that approximated the drinker-of-magic that I

described to you

RSwiftblade:     "This is a bad omen..."

Tolmara:           just now.  I thought that this party could handle it with no

problem.  I was clearly mistaken.  I had given them an item to summon aid

should they have need of it from me.  When I glanced at the sphere which I

used to track their

Tolmara:           movements, the drinker-of-magic attacked me.  But by then, the

party had fled, and the thief had died in a trap."

Tolmara:           "As you can see, I lost the battle with the drinker-of-magic.  And

I would have been trapped here for some time more had you not happened into

this room and broken the connection."

RSwiftblade:     ::listening to the spirit and tending to Drenla::

Lunauc:            ::scratching at his chest, he understands most of what the spirit

talks about::

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "So now, my time is short before I walk with Lady

Death.  If you be heroes, seek to put to rest this drinker-of-magic, before

it escapes its present lair and

RSwiftblade:     "How?"

Tolmara:           enters the world, for if it does, no mage or wizard will live for

long.  You have the instrument of its destruction in your hands."

Trayn of Solnor:            "I may be able to use the staff to destroy it?" he


Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Not the staff.  Your friend, the sorcerer."  It

points to Lunauc.

Trayn of Solnor:            "what of divine magic?"

RSwiftblade:     "We must keep him safe..."

Lunauc:            ::completely clueless now, just looks at the spirit, then down into

his hands, mumbles:: "Never knew My crossbow was so powerful..."

Lunauc:            ::scratches head::

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "The staff is a powerful ter'angreal, useable

only in the hands of channeler or one who has passed a Test of the Citadel.

In order to use the staff, if you have not been gifted the staff, you must

Lunauc:            (guess morti'll never have one... sobs)

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Divine magic is useful against creatures of the

Shadow, but not a drinker-of-magic.  Fear not, walker of Light, it has no

power against you."

RSwiftblade:     (wits...ok we are in trouble)

RSwiftblade:     "We must keep Drenla away from it"

AlexPetrovich99:           "But if Drenla's the only one qwho can destroy it.."

RSwiftblade:     "No...it is Morti...you saw what happened"

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Ah, she is waiting for me."  He glances at you.

"I promise you, we shall meet again and again.  Twice more we shall meet

before I go to my eternal rest.  This is not the moment of parting."

Lunauc:            ::nods then looks back up to jer'ar:: "He is?"

Trayn of Solnor:            ::me nods::

AlexPetrovich99:           "I meant to say if you,Morti , are the only one.

Lunauc:            "Ur.... alright... see ya later than." ::waves tentatively at the


AlexPetrovich99:           forgive me but I was overcome by themoment"

Trayn of Solnor:            "then we await our next meeting... go onward and start your

new journey"

RSwiftblade:     "Aye...have peace wizard"  ::sprinkles holy water over the


Lunauc:            "If I'm the only one who whah?" :: stares oddly at jer'ar::

Tolmara:           Asflag's spirit:  "Remember, he -- ::pointing to Lunauc:: -- can

destroy the drinker-of-magic, with either the staff or his magic.  There is

much afoot in the world and the time of coming will soon be at hand."

AlexPetrovich99:           "WEell he just said you're the one who has to defeat it,mr


RSwiftblade:     "As Rhian said Morti, you have a gift and now you have a

powerful advisary"

Lunauc:            ::No idea why they keep saying these things about him:: "I really

don't think you guys know what yer talking about."

RSwiftblade:     "Ye are what we call a natural shaaman... a very unique one"

Trayn of Solnor:            "hmmm well we shall do as you ask"

AlexPetrovich99:           "To think..all that magical power trapped within him..

ehehe Morti boy, I neevr would've guessed you had it in you"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::big smile at the thought:

Tolmara:           The image of the wizard walks to the foot of the stairs and takes

someone's hand.  "Moiraine, my bond and counsel, I bequeath to you --

Lunauc:            ::knows he didn't do anything:: "I really don't know what yer

talking about"

Tolmara:           ::pointing at Lunauc::

Tolmara:           And then the spirit is gone.

Lunauc:            ::gulps:: "What'd that mean?"

RSwiftblade:     "Have ye ever through of something and it happens? That is how

our natural shaamans cast spells."

Tolmara:           The tabby cocks its head and bounds over to Morti, purring and

rubbing against him.

Lunauc:            ::flinches a bit before noticing it's the cat in his lap rubbing its

head. then looks to reiner:: "No, usually thinks go pretty badly compared to

how I think of them"

Trayn of Solnor:            "he means the cat... its name is Moiraine I believe"

Trayn of Solnor:            "wow that was something..."

RSwiftblade:     "Ye have a new friend...focus on having a bowl of milk appear

for her to drink"

RSwiftblade:     "Concentrate Morti...see that bowl of milk in your head and

will it to appear...that is how our shaamans do it"

Lunauc:            ::looks to reiner like he's the daft one:: "You didn't look at that

sphere too much did you?"

RSwiftblade:     "Just try it for me...ok?"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::shrugs,as this is all quite beyond me::

Lunauc:            ::picking up the cat:: "No"

RSwiftblade:     "Do not be afraid...ye are doing yer new friend a favor by

giving her a bowl of milk"

Lunauc:            "I can't do that. I don't know how."

Trayn of Solnor:            "stop this sillyness"

Trayn of Solnor:            "pick up your cat.. though i think it will follow you at

any rate"

RSwiftblade:     "It is not silly, the boy must realize that he has these


Trayn of Solnor:            "and take that staff... he has bequethed both to you"

Lunauc:            "how can he bequeath me Drenla's stuff?"

Trayn of Solnor:            ((to be honest i don't know who was who back in the last

scene at points))

RSwiftblade:     "Let me see if I can wake Drenla"

Trayn of Solnor:            ((if the wizard didnt have a staff ignore my statement))

Tolmara:           ((OOC:  he didn't bequeath the staff to Drenla.  he said that the

staff can only be used by a channeler or someone who passed a Test in a

Citadel (e.g., Drenla).)

Lunauc:            ((morti falls under neither category)

Tolmara:           ((OOC:  he said that if the staff is used by someone who hasn't

received the staff as a gift, that someone has to fight a battle of wits

against the staff before the staff can be used by that person.))

Lunauc:            ::petting the cat:: "Moiraine, huh?"

Lunauc:            ::looking to the others:: "So where now?"

Tolmara:           ((OOC:  in other words, if Morti uses the staff, Morti has to try

to master the staff first.))

Trayn of Solnor:            ((who said ole wizards were cryptic....?))

RSwiftblade:     "Drenla wake up" ::andministers some foul smelling herbs and

uses healing::

Lunauc:            (she who?)

RSwiftblade:     "Hm...am I going to have to carry him now?"

RSwiftblade:     ::checks to see if Drenla is still living::

Trayn of Solnor:            ((sorry Drenla sounded feminine to me))

RSwiftblade:     ((LOL))

Trayn of Solnor:            ...

Tolmara:           He (Drenla) does not stir.

Trayn of Solnor:            "perhaps taking him out of the room would help..."

Lunauc:            ::heads back over to the drenla and them:: "Do you think the pearl

got him?"

can use to combat this evil"

RSwiftblade:     "Ye have tasted the evil of the pearl my son... it has entered

your soul, ye must be strong Drenla"

Lunauc:            (wonder if drenla can put it back together. we could sell it to the

gnome all broke ass)

RSwiftblade:     "Do not let it tempt you..."

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Now, you're daft, horselord.  If anything, I'm not afraid


Trayn of Solnor:            "wise words... the battle of evil is in the soul"

Lunauc:            "yeah, besides, you have that staff that can beat it, right?"

Trayn of Solnor:            "the staff is a tool... yet mastered"

RSwiftblade:     "I sense it within you...I am a priest and we can sense these


Trayn of Solnor:            "it is a conduit of energy... its the user that must still

utilize it correctly"

Tolmara:           Drenla (glancing at Morti):  "I'm not sure.  I know what you're

talking about actually."

Lunauc:            ::acting knowing:: "Don't worry, I'll tell you all about it later"

Tolmara:           He glances at the staff.  "Strange.  I don't feel at one with it as

before.  What happened?"

RSwiftblade:     "You were attacked by a great evil being, we have brought you

back from near death"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Maybe the staff reacted to your need?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Hm, that must be it...I hope.  Well in any event, let us

press on."

the spider will flee"

Lunauc:            :looks back:: "What's going on?"

Tolmara:           ((except in the case of the staircase in the secret passage.  that

staircase leads down.))

AlexPetrovich99:           "Think she might be kept prisoner down there?"

FenrysStar:       "I thought that looked out of place"

RSwiftblade:     "Well shall we?

Lunauc:            :strolls back seeing the others gathered at the new entrance::

"Guess we go deeper"

VBJunkie:         "I guess we do"

RSwiftblade:     "I hope this is not a crypt"

RSwiftblade:     ::starts to proceed down::

Lunauc:            ::follows after them::

Tolmara:           When you enter the passage deep beneath the mansion, there is a

distinct odor of damp, freshly turned earth.

AlexPetrovich99:           (any light?)

Tolmara:           The odor is similar to that which you smelled above, in the

mansion's corridors.  No light, unless you count the phophorescent moss on

the sides of the passage.

AlexPetrovich99:           *re-lights the torch

Tolmara:           Frigid air ((ooc:  remember that it's late autumn in a similar

environment to New York State)) permeates the corridor.

Tolmara:           ((or northern Alberta, if you want to be technical.))

Tolmara:           (which way, left or right?)

Lunauc:            ::hugs his jacket closed, a shiver running down his spine::

RSwiftblade:     (left all?)

Lunauc:            (right is the most common answer... ::glares suggestively:: and I

figure you are aware of that. So left it is)

AlexPetrovich99:           (yes, I know that,and I agree)

Tolmara:           You traipse down the passage, and after a while, emerge into the

bottom of a stone shaft.  A lever can be seen, protruding out of the wall

near the corridor's end.

RSwiftblade:     (what do we see as we walk left?)

RSwiftblade:     ::looks up::

RSwiftblade:     "This is very odd"

Lunauc:            ::looks around the room for some clue as to what it is for::

Tolmara:           You spot a ceiling made of wood.  A strong thick pillar of stone

supports the ceiling, and stands in the middle of the room.

RSwiftblade:     "What make you of this lythar?"

AlexPetrovich99:           "Don't touch the lever; it might make the pillar fall for

all we know"

VBJunkie:         "this looks like a trap... protecting what I know not"

VBJunkie:         ::exits out of the room::

FenrysStar:       "Interesting I'm not sure what to make of all this, so many

twists and turns to this tower"

RSwiftblade:     "Does the stone pillar look as though in extends into the


RSwiftblade:     "Could it be a mechanical or magical device?"

FenrysStar:       ((doing a search check to see what's about.))

OnlineHost:       FenrysStar rolled 1 20-sided die:  4

FenrysStar:       ((13 total))

AlexPetrovich99:           "Let's try the other direction..maybe that'll shed some

light on things"

RSwiftblade:     ::searches also::

FenrysStar:       "Pillar goes straight through the floor, I wonder what that

lever does?"

Lunauc:            "Moiraine says she recalls Asflag mentioning  a transport shaft"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I say leave it be until we have a better idea"

RSwiftblade:     "I believe this is a device of some sort...look, the shaft goes

through the floor"

FenrysStar:       ::starts looking for hinges or anything suggesting a trap door::

RSwiftblade:     "Did she say where it leads?"

Lunauc:            "She doesn't know"

FenrysStar:       ((let's try a spot check shall we?))

OnlineHost:       FenrysStar rolled 1 20-sided die:  4

FenrysStar:       ((13 again the only thing consistant about these dice is that

they don't like us much))

Lunauc:            "But I figure it'll bring us to that trader's entrance in the back"

Lunauc:            "Well... I'm guessing really"

RSwiftblade:     "This must be the ground floor and if it is a transport device

then the other way leads outside"

RSwiftblade:     "Let's go the other way"

AlexPetrovich99:           "yes,let's"

Lunauc:            (we're beneath ground,aren't we?)

Lunauc:            "Okay"

Tolmara:           (yes)

RSwiftblade:     "That must be where the cold is coming from"

VBJunkie:         "lets stay where we have experience with"

VBJunkie:         "why are we down here anyway?"

VBJunkie:         "we've done our job and we have a new one to accomplish"

Lunauc:            "Because the witch might be trapped down here"

AlexPetrovich99:           "I agre completely with Morti"

VBJunkie:         "well lets start calling for her..."

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "She's not here."

AlexPetrovich99:           ::looks atthe probable shock on Morti's face as he hears me

say that::

Lunauc:            ::looks to drenla:: "Huh?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "You heard me, little mage.  Your Aes Sedai witch is not


Lunauc:            "Really? You know where she is?"

VBJunkie:         "here as in down here or here as in in the tower?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Actually, no, I don't know exactly where she is, and I

really don't care.  But she is not here in this tower and she is not here in

this town."

Lunauc:            ::blinking:: "How do you know?"

VBJunkie:         "well then I'm correct... we are done"

VBJunkie:         "besides finding those stray Ghouls that is"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Others have said that she lies on an island far to the

south of here, in a tower of stone."

Lunauc:            "You know who she is?"

RSwiftblade:     "There are those ghouls...remember?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "If you wish to be a mage, you should start acting like

one.  Observe and listen instead of acting on impulse like these warriors."

FenrysStar:       ::leans against a wall and contemplates throwing the switch just

on general principal::

Lunauc:            ::lets his head lull to the side as he listens to the expierenced


AlexPetrovich99:           ::notices Lythar and backs away from the area::

AlexPetrovich99:           "Are we going to the other end or not?"

Lunauc:            "If you knew all this, why haven't you said anything all night?"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "I don't know who she is or why she is so important to

you.  Right now, all I care about is getting back to the inn and sleeping in

bed instead of freezing my arse off, almost slain by a pack of ghouls."

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Because I was waiting for you to come to your senses."

Lunauc:            ::shrinks back under the harsh words::

RSwiftblade:     "Well there is the way out" ::points to the other end of the

corridor..."Lead on Drenla"

FenrysStar:       ::sighsand heads off towards area 15::

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Now then, let's move on so we can get out of here."

Lunauc:            (we're at 15)

OnlineHost:       Tolmara rolled 1 20-sided die:  3

RSwiftblade:     "Come on let us get out of here"

VBJunkie:         "we have things to do anyway..."

Lunauc:            "Won't the other ghouls cause trouble though?"

FenrysStar:       ::walks over to the lever and inspect it as well as the general

area around to see if he can get a clue as to what it might do::

FenrysStar:       ((general search check no need to be alarmed))

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Aren't you their master?  Command them to come to the

Lightwalker and see them destroyed."

OnlineHost:       FenrysStar rolled 1 20-sided die:  9

RSwiftblade:     ::starts to walk towards the cold::

FenrysStar:       ((a little better total of 18))

Lunauc:            "They aren't here to be commanded... even if they did listen..."

VBJunkie:         ((is a bit clueless on the present Ghoul situation))

RSwiftblade:     "I would really like to get an ale and bed"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Have you tried?"

Lunauc:            "Tried what?"

Lunauc:            ::walking along with the others::

FenrysStar:       "Everyone away from the pillar, I'm going to try something.

RSwiftblade:     "Drenla let him be...stop goating him"

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Tried to command them.  Tried to command the ghast.

Tried to banish it as you did the spiderbeast.  Tried something!"

FenrysStar:       ::pulling on the lever::

AlexPetrovich99:           "DRENLA!"

AlexPetrovich99:           "OH shit..take cover"

AlexPetrovich99:           ::runs out of the whole area::

Lunauc:            ::lets his head lull down:: "I thought I did..."

Tolmara:           Drenla (muttering):  "A fool drains me of my magic and the magic

within the staff.  And he possesses power that I cannot hope to match.  I am

a fool..."

Tolmara:           You hear a humming noise as the pillar begins sinking into the

floor, and gears and levers turn....

Lunauc:            "I said I didn't do anything..."

RSwiftblade:     "Your time will come Morti...do not listen to him..."

Tolmara:           ((you can hear the gears and levers turning))

Tolmara:           ((from somewhere))

Lunauc:            ::looks back to the shaft::

VBJunkie:         ::backs away even more::

RSwiftblade:     ::Whispers to Morti:: "He is your enemy...be careful"

Tolmara:           After a while, the cloakroom from above descends into where the

room was and the doorway lines up with the room's entrance.

Lunauc:            ::looks up at Reiner wide-eyed::

FenrysStar:       ::watching all this and is prepared to try and reverse what he

did if need be or run if he can't::

Tolmara:           ((OOC:  remember the cloakroom with the cloak that Lythar picked

up?  right before the ballroom?))

AlexPetrovich99:           ::calls out::

AlexPetrovich99:           "You gys still alive?"

AlexPetrovich99:           *You guys

FenrysStar:       ((I still have the cloak, didn't put it on but I still have it))

VBJunkie:         "I am" from room #5

VBJunkie:         ((or the hallway))

Lunauc:            ::shakes off the demeaning and accusations, and gives a forced

snicker at the lowered cloak room:: "Hehe... see? transport"

RSwiftblade:     "See...now lets get out of here...."

Tolmara:           Drenla:  "Well, now that we've seen it, let us away."

VBJunkie:         "I think the stairs would have worked"

Tolmara:           The wizard storms off and exits through the secret passage.

FenrysStar:       "Interesting this must have been quite a place to visit when the

owner was still in attendance"

Lunauc:            ::sniffing the air.:: "It's probably for the ghouls to use. Probably

wouldn't wnat them walking through the kitchen with that stink"

VBJunkie:         ::comes to the dangerous group again.. seeing as they didnt kill


RSwiftblade:     "Hehe lets go out the back way"

Lunauc:            "So we're leaving then? What about...? " ::Gestures to the stairs::

Tolmara:           Drenla (to Trayn):  "We've come here and eliminated the creature

that was terrorizing the town.  Let us away to the comfort of an inn, if you

don't mind."

VBJunkie:         "I need to prepare the body..."

RSwiftblade:     "Do you all want to leave this place? Let's go" Continues

walking to the source of the cold::

VBJunkie:         "and give it a proper funeral"

Lunauc:            "Hai hai"

VBJunkie:         (funeral pyre)

AlexPetrovich99:           :hurries  back to them::

VBJunkie:         "I'll need a lot of wood.... which we can get from the garden"

Tolmara:           ((so to the source of the cold?))

AlexPetrovich99:           "I thought for sure you were all gonna die when he went to

pull that thing"

VBJunkie:         "we just need to avoid the scarecrows"

RSwiftblade:     (YES)

AlexPetrovich99:           "I mean,you've seen the other traps in this place.."

Lunauc:            (source? I thought it just was cold)

Tolmara:           Reiner marches down the passageway, and comes to a flight of stairs

leading up.

Lunauc:            ::follows reiner::

FenrysStar:       ::shrugs his shoulders and goes towards the stairs::

AlexPetrovich99:           "Last scarecrow I came across I bashed it to pieces"

RSwiftblade:     "All I can think of right now is a bath and some ale"

Tolmara:           The staircase emerges into a gazebo that looks out over the flower

garden to the SE of the house.

Lunauc:            :: coming up out, looks around the fields for the ghouls::

VBJunkie:         "I'll not need everyone's help"

Lunauc:            (is it morning yet?)

VBJunkie:         "just a few"

RSwiftblade:     "Can ye do it another time? We did give him last rights...that

is all that is needed by my belief"

Tolmara:           ((actually its past noon -- remember, you rested))

Lunauc:            (just checking)

VBJunkie:         "well that's not good enough for me"

Lunauc:            ::to tryan:: "I'll help you."

RSwiftblade:     "I want to go to the inn.  Ye can get your local brothers to

help you"

Tolmara:           ((http://taliesinnyc.tripod.com/outdoor.jpg for the map of Asflag's

tower and grounds.  Location 4 is where you are currently))

VBJunkie:         "fine"

FenrysStar:       ::blinks and sits in the gazebo and looks over the garden::

VBJunkie:         ::takes what help he can get - wont coerce it::

VBJunkie:         "the gazebo... that may make things easier"

VBJunkie:         "it will make an excellent pyre"

Tolmara:           ((At this point, we'll stop.))

Tolmara:           ((don't go, just closing the log.))

RSwiftblade:     good
