chainshirt. "J'hzuu, get your gloves! We've got company!" **
** (107) J'hzuu has his gloves on already, but swivels towards the noise,
readying himself to cast a spell if they seem hostile. **
** (99) Kha stands up and pulls out the long dagger **
** (99) Kha Consentrates on his dagger for a moment **
(118) DM: It's just a lone rider ambling down the trail from the west.
** (123) Agatha throws her fur overcoat back on and tightens her belt before
picking up her axe and cautiously approahes the rider. **
(118) DM: He's on horseback. It appears to be a man with black hair, a red
cloak and wearing an eye patch. A silver chain hangs around his neck ending in
a skull medallion. He wears a sardonic grin as he spies your encampment.
(118) The rider: "Greetings! Wonderful day to
think of all the deaths here, isn't it?"
** (99) Kha gives the man a puzzled look "Is it ever a wonderfull day to
think of death?" **
** (107) J'hzuu 's eyes widen for a moment, and he
takes a step behind Agatha, putting her between himself and the death-loving
(123) Agatha: "Who are you, stranger?"
(118) The rider: "All life is a miserable
existence, it is. The world is an unhappy place and filled with sin and misery.
For most, death is just a merciful release from the toils and travails of
existence. Don't you agree?" (chuckles)
** (99) Kha disagrees **
(118) The rider: "I? Steinmeyer of Lamaris, god of death
and the dead, at your service. And who might you be?"
(99) Kha: "Um Agatha, he is probably from around here, so we would be the
(123) Agatha: "Agatha, a woman who feels death makes life worth
(88) Trieve (exit):
(118) Steinmeyer: "A pleasure to meet you both. Welcome by the way to
Kern, as I see that you are not from here by your manner of speaking." (glances over at Git) "Are you in need of aid?"
(99) Kha: "God of Death? Isnt that Teleute?"
(123) Agatha: "Not around here apparantly."
(99) Kha: "He will be fine after a rest and food. He ate some bad
** (118) Steinmeyer shrugs. "The name is not familiar to me. I do not
worship Teleute, whatever god or goddess that might be." **
(123) Agatha: "And our friend will be doing much better once you take your
(123) Agatha: "If you are a god, you're no god I'd like to have
** (107) J'hzuu leans foward and whispers in Agatha's ears. "Please don't
annoy the death-god". **
(99) Kha: "Oh, the way you worded your statment I thought you were
claiming to be a god. Not just a priest. Sorry I am very tired even though it
is early yet."
(107) J'hzuu: *death-priest, whatever.
** (118) Steinmeyer shrugs again. "Suit yourselves then. This is after all
the border of the Plains of Despair. Death IS a fact of life, for here was
fought many a battle against those who served the Nine Council in times long
(99) Kha: "Ya, and a few days further is a Manor full of undead. Lots of death around here."
(118) Steinmeyer: "Ah well. If you're heading in that direction, at least
for you the end is nigh." (rubs his hands in
(99) Kha: "I doubt that. I hear the hostes is very nice to her guests, if
you can stand being around the undead that long anyways."
(118) Steinmeyer: "With your deaths, you shall be liberated from the
oppresive weight that is your existence in this life."
(118) Steinmeyer: "I doubt that very much. The lady Talakara is not known
for her....hospitality, shall I say."
(123) Agatha: "Hmph, it wouldn't be the first time we heard prophecies of
doom. I doubt it'll be the last."
(123) Agatha: ((this'll even))
** (118) Steinmeyer grins again, showing bright white teeth. "I
prophesize not, m'lady. In any event, a pleasure it was to meet you both
short as our meeting was in twain." **
** (99) Kha smiles then turns to Agatha "Well Git needs to rest the rest
of the day, as do I. Do his horse tracks look like those you saw before?"
(118) Steinmeyer: "Are you certain your companion does not need aid?"
(99) Kha: "I am sure. He will be fine. But thank you and your god for the
(123) Agatha: "Out of curiosity, where are you off to?"
** (118) Steinmeyer waves his hand languidly. "May Lamaris bless this worthy
soul in the hope that the weight of all existence shall be lifted off his
shoulders and he find bliss in the never-ending fields
of the life thereafter." **
(99) Kha: (( AFK for a smoke, Hope we dont have to fight ))
(123) Agatha: "Wait...you're not here for him are you?"
** (118) Steinmeyer smiles jovially at Agatha replying, "Why m'lady, the
town of Leilon, a few days to the east yonder from which a road leads to the
Caer you spoke of earlier. Another road leads further east from Leilon over the
AshenMountains to Stressex and points beyond. Why do you ask?" **
(118) Steinmeyer: "I? I come not for the dead, m'lady, but to witness
those who are about to die. The god leads me whither he wills."
(123) Agatha: "What's happened in Leilon?"
** (123) Agatha begins regretting the question the moment it leaves her lips. **
(118) Steinmeyer: "There is talk of a revolt against the Lady Talakara, a
revolt being organized by members of those who lead some kind of resistance
against the Nine Council. I think of all the deaths that I shall witness in
furtherance of the glory that is Lamaris, may his name be forever
praised." (smiles widely)
(118) Steinmeyer: "And that is not all. A knight -- well, his bearing is
not quite that of a knight but I think that he is one -- who bears ill will to
the Nine Council, if his statements are to be believed. A glorious day it shall
be to see his demise against the servants of the Goddess Talakara. I assume you
have heard tales of the Goddess?"
(123) Agatha: "Hmph. Hasn't everyone? We learned
her name after being in this land for not five minutes."
(118) Steinmeyer: "A false Goddess from what I know of her. Long will it
be before she takes a fall." (shifts weight on
(99) Kha: "She has wonderfuly interesting black roses that cause
infertility. She, or one of her servents was kind
enough to send me a few."
(118) Steinmeyer: "If you will be travelling to Leilon, perhaps I shall
see you at Dame Gold's manor house. The good baroness has invited various
adventuring groups in the land to take part in festivities at her estate, for
what purpose I do not know. It would be good of me to gain the lay of the land
however, in search of patrons who might wish to relieve themselves of this
existence when it is time for them to do so." (chuckles)
(118) Steinmeyer: "A priest's work is never done."
(99) Kha: "True enough"
(118) Steinmeyer: "Well, I shall be off. Deaths to
witness and sermons proclaiming the glory of the god to write, and all that.
May your friend fare well! And even if he does not, may he die well
(123) Agatha: "Well we won't keep you then. I'd like to wish you good
luck, but it ain't my way. Not in this case."
** (99) Kha goes and lays back down "Since Git wont be ready to travel
untill lat tonight I am going to take a nap. Wake me if anything arises"
** (107) J'hzuu simply nods, eager to see the disturbing man leave. **
** (118) Steinmeyer takes a courtly bow from his saddle and snaps the reins on
his horse. "Sweet death, may she come for you in swift embrace!" **
(118) DM: The cleric gallops away.
** (123) Agatha is plenty warm in her coat, but she shivers as the horseman
(123) Agatha: "Just once, I'd like to have a day where nothing weird
(123) Agatha: "Well, let's pack and get moving. This place gets more
unsettlin' by the hour."
(118) DM: (curious...you're travelling at night?)
(123) Agatha: ((it's not morning?))
(99) Kha: (( it was morning, but Git needs to sleep ))
(154) Git: ((Git can sleep on J'zhuu's disc...))
(99) Kha: (( Ahh ok, guess we can travel then ))
(123) Agatha: "Kha, I need you to watch over Git if you know what we're
dealing with. J'hzuu, can you manage one of those flyin' discs?"
(99) Kha: "Will do."
** (107) J'hzuu nods and takes a vial of mercury from his spellpouch. A few
seconds of gesturing and muttering later, he is exhaling a mist that coalesces
into a semi-solid disc. **
** (99) Kha picks Git up and places him on the disk **
** (123) Agatha is already packing up. **
(123) Agatha: "Much as I hates to follow him. Moving in death's shadow
might be the best way to get to Caern. With any luck, we can sneak past
Talakara while she's lookin' the other way."
(99) Kha: "I figured we just go knock on the door."
(123) Agatha: "The woman hands out infertility as a signature and we're
trying to steal her favorite toy soldier. I say the less she sees of us the
(99) Kha: "But we have a bargening chip. We can tell her about Dranloc's
(123) Agatha: "Knowledge she could just as easily get by torturing us or
magicking it from our heads."
(123) Agatha: "We don't know what she's capable of. I don't aim to find
** (99) Kha shrugs "I think Git would agree with you if h was awake."
(123) Agatha: "That makes two of us. I imagine he also wouldn't care to
linger in a place that seems to draw so many bad omens. Are we ready?"
(99) Kha: "Aye" ** heads off toward to Caer Thorne **
(928) DM: (from last session) (930) Evil Joe (exit): (916) Kha: (( ok we are 2 days later? )) (928) DM: ((yep)) (928) DM: You're on the road east of Heathwatch.
A line of wooded foothills is on the horizon, and mountains rising from them in
the far off distance. Gently rolling hills to either side of
you, lightly wooded terrain. All seems peaceful. (928) DM: You've passed the odd traveller on the
road. Not as friendly as you're used to, or that might be because you're not
familiar with the local countryfolk. Subdued, almost.
Those that introduce themselves or take the time to be friendly say there's a
town a few days away called Safeton, ruled by a baroness with no love for the
Nine Council. (928) DM: However there's a rather unusual
ordinance in force. No magicka of any kind is to be practiced in the town
limits. Apparently the baroness is no fan of wizards and their ilk. (916) Kha: "Maybe this Barroness can
help us out for finding a way to get in without being noticed." (928) DM: Her name apparently is "Dame
Gold." (904) Agatha: "Or she could send us to
a trap and present us to the Council like a mongrel looking for a treat." (915) J'hzuu: ((What's the law like on magic
items? J'hzuu's robes mebbe not go down so well)) whispering to Matt, you don't have identify,
correct? not sure if you did (928) DM: ((just no visible casting)) (916) Kha: "Acording to the locals she
doent like the council." ** (904) Agatha looks back at Git, still resting on
one of J'hzuu's floating discs. "The locals also say she's not so keen on
mages. ** (904) Agatha: "Still.. No harm in
asking a little more about Caer Thorn." (928) DM: It's early afternoon, by the look of the sun in the sky. (928) DM: You round a bend in the road when
something catches your attention that doesn't normally happen travelling on a
road in the countryside. (928) DM: A corpse, horribly mangled, lies a few
feet away. It's head appears to be tossed to one side.
** (916) Kha goes over and examins the corpse ** whispering to Drathmar, have we settled what
Ajah she belongs to? ** (915) J'hzuu stops at the sight and immediately
begins scanning the surrounding area for any dangers. ** ** (904) Agatha looks around trying to spot a
perpetrator. ** (928) DM: It's a woman albeit barely
recognizeable. ** (904) Agatha speaks to Kha still looking around.
"What the hell happened to her?" ** (915) J'hzuu: "She was killed?" ** (916) Kha tries to find anything to identify to woman "She got killed?"
** (928) DM: Her garments are tattered, as if torn
to pieces by wild animals, her belongings ripped to shreds and scattered to the
winds. A walking staff that she may have been using lies shattered to pieces
next to her still form, the headpiece riven from the core. Scraps of parchment
litter the roadside. The sheer savagery of her remains is quite jarring in
contrast to your peaceful surroundings. (928) DM: Her dress is rather ordinary save for
an overabundance of green fabric and green trim around her robes. (904) Agatha: "Obviously. Any idea how,
smart mouths? (916) Kha: "Looks like wild animals. But
that seems odd to me. They didnt eat her, so I doubt it was natural animals, if
animals it was." (928) DM: Tracks -- a multitude of them -- can
be seen on the road, most converging from different directions. A struggle took
place here, one that the dead woman lost. Bushes lie trampled a few yards away
and a birch tree is blackened as if struck by lightning. The only problem is
that it hasn't rained in a day or so. ** (904) Agatha makes a feeble attempt to identify
the tracks. ** (904) Agatha: Survival check (no track
feat): [1d20+9 ] => [16,9] = (25) whispering to Gautam, they're hoofed. (916) Kha: "I think she was killed by
someone who can wield the Power I do. I can sense the use of that power here.
The only other things we have met that use that Power are very unfriendly. Those eyeless things." ** (915) J'hzuu attempts to read the parchment
scraps. ** whispering to Gautam, bipedal animals? (915) J'hzuu: "Kha wields it. Perhaps
the woman was evil?" (904) Agatha: "Whatever did this had
hooves...And two legs?" (916) Kha: "No, the Aes Sedi Power feels
differant then mine. It gives me chills" **
looks at Agatha ** "We met those when we
foght that eyeless thing as well. Not sure what they were but they had animal
heads and walked on two legs. Some had hooves." ** (915) J'hzuu holds up a scrap of parchment.
"Scribbles. "Safeton, it says." he
pauses, reading some more. "meet him in a day or
so. I send all my..." He squints. "Adelle?
Yes, Adelle, it says." ** (916) Kha: "Servents of the Shai`tan
(sp)" (904) Agatha: "Feels like a lifetime
ago when we fought those things." (916) Kha: "Well in any case, it would
be best to be away from here. Git is stong enough to walk so we can bring her
body to town to be delt with properly." ** (904) Agatha thinks about the natural accusations
and opens her mouth to argue, but decides against it. "Aye, I suppose she
deserves a decent burial. Just don't be too surprised when folks start pointin'
the finger at us." ** ** (916) Kha gathers up the womans remains and places
them on the Disk Git was using ** (904) Agatha: "And cover her up would
you? I can barely stand to look at her." ** (915) J'hzuu frowns at the thought of carrying
about a corpse. "Yes, do this. Other travellers also might be...
upset." ** (915) J'hzuu: ((How much further to the
town?)) ** (916) Kha diggs his blanket out of his pack and
lays it over her, leaving just the top part of her head sticking out in the
hope that people will think she is just sick ** (928) DM: ((3 days on foot)) ** (916) Kha finishes with the blanket then walks
into the woods "Well looks like she
killed one of the beasts anyways." ** (916) Kha: "About a day ago. Her body is
gona start smelling soon even though it is winter. Lets hope we make it to the
city before that happens." (904) Agatha: "Aye, we may have to bury
her ourselves 'fore too long." ** (916) Kha keeps heading to the town keeping his
senses alert for any use of the Power thats similar to his ** (933) nutritious (enter): (928) DM: ((duration of the disc?)) (915) J'hzuu: Eight hours (915) J'hzuu: ((Whoops. Nine, rather)) (928) DM: ((so you mean to tell me you're taking
a disc with a corpse atop it to town? for 3 days?)) (916) Kha: (( going
to drop the Disk an hour out of town or so )) (928) DM: Time passes after you encounter the
headless corpse (and loading her onto J'hzuu's disc) when there's a cart pulled
by a couple of horses that comes upon you from the other direction (928) DM: They appear to be farmers, and of
course they stare at you while you trudge along the road. ** (916) Kha waves at the farmers as he passes ** (933) nutritious (exit): (928) DM: Not precisely at you but at the disc
and your um...burden atop it. True, it's early winter but there's a
certain....odiferousness that's just beginning to manifest. (916) Kha: (( she is
covered, but not much we can do about the smell )) (928) DM: ((which is why they notice. it is
after all a disc floating in the air.)) (916) Kha: (( true
)) ** (916) Kha keeps walking ignoring the stairs of the
farmers ** (928) Setath: "Ahoy there! Well met, I
think." (916) Kha: (( guess
I typed too fast )) ** (928) Setath nudges his companion who looks up
from the road as he sits up with a start as you pass by. He whispers in his ear
and pokes a finger at the disc while staring, his eyes bugging out. ** (904) Agatha: "Well met, yourself.
Where you fellows headed from?" ** (915) J'hzuu nods in greeting, but says nothing,
trying to resist the urge to step behind Aggie. ** (916) Kha: "Greetings. How far are we from the town, we found the sceen of a battle on our
way in and would like to report the sceen to the proper people." (928) Evarin: "From the shacktown outside
Safeton. Market was a day or so ago and we're 'turning home. Now
that there's a sight to see, eh?A horseless
wagon." (928) Setath: "Oh, um....you're a ways away.
I reckon 'bout two, mebbe three more days walkin." (928) Setath: "Oh ays, I'm Setath tho me
friends call me Settie. This here's Evarin. Pleased ta meet'cha." (904) Agatha: "Aye, the horses got
spooked off a few nights ago and took the fool wheels with 'em." (928) Evarin: "Well...um, 'tain't no
wheels. How do it stay up like dat?" (916) Kha: "Oh we missed the Market? I
was hoping to make it in time so I could do some enertaining. Ahh that far?Names Kha. Nice to
meet`cha as well" (904) Agatha: "The 'cart' was the only
thing that was loyal enough to stick around. Powerful thing, that." ** (928) Setath makes some waving motions with his
hands. "You dinn' let loose, eh? What's dat smell?" ** ** (915) J'hzuu opens his mouth, then closes it,
realising what he was about to say would get them into more strife. "Of
course it stays up. If it didn't, it would scrape along the road, no?" ** (928) Evarin: "Well, d'you know where we
can get one o' dat there carts?" (904) Agatha: "The name's Agatha, the
lad over here is Kha, and the furry fellow is J'hzuu." (928) Setath: "D'ye sell
them?" (he looks at his cart and the horses)
"Say, if we bought this cart from you we could make a mint. No more horses
to feed." ** (915) J'hzuu nods again as he is introduced.
"No. They are loyal, as Kha said. It follows J'hzuu only, yes?" ** (904) Agatha: "Naw, you wouldn't want
one o' these. They don't last too long. Give me a horse anyday." ** (928) Evarin nods and waves over
to J'hzuu. "Don't see many catmen
here this here ways. They all been marched off when
the lady duchess took 'em from the fields." ** (916) Kha: "Smell is the woman we found
at the sceen of the battle." ** (904) Agatha winces at Kha's bluntness. ** ** (915) J'hzuu simply nods, having no idea of local
events. When Kha mentions the woman, he cringes. ** ** (928) Setath looks a bit disappointed at hearing
the news. "Naw?A shame, ma'am.Neber seen a horseless cart." ** (928) Evarin: "Well, aren't you gonna, you
know like, uh, bury her? Startin' to stink up mighty
bad." (928) Setath: "Dame Gold's guards might
have a word 'bout that." (looks at the disc
again) (916) Kha: "I was hoping to make it to
town, but I am starting to agree with you. Since we are still
three days out." (928) Setath: "Ays, ays they might." (904) Agatha: "We were hoping the town
were closer, so we could maybe find her kin and hand her over proper." (904) Agatha: "You boys ever hear of
lass by name o' Adelle?" ** (928) Evarin looks at Evarin and they whisper
amongst themselves for a bit, after which he says slowly, "Well, we could
take you to town if'n you sell us dat there cart." ** (928) DM: (looks at Setath, sorry) (928) Setath: "No, sorry, neber heard o'
dat name. Pretty name tho." ** (916) Kha shakes his head and starts to move on ** (934) Ryuu (enter): ** (915) J'hzuu shrugs. "No. Like J'hzuu said,
it follows him only. Selling... would not work, yes?" ** (904) Agatha: "Trust me, this cart'll
be bust by day's end. It's only good when ain't got nothin' else like us." (928) Evarin: "Weeelll...can't you tell it
ta follow us?" (935) Mini (enter): ** (928) Setath seems disappointed. "Weelll, we
had ta try." ** (934) Ryuu (exit): (928) Setath: "C'mon, Evar. Let's go. I
tol' you dat wouldn't work." ** (915) J'hzuu nods. "Sorry." He seems to
have a thought, and rummages about in his robes for a moment, pulling out five
gold coins ((the name of which escapes me right now)) and offering them.
"Could all still be show all to town?" ** ** (904) Agatha smiles. "Well, let me tell you what. Seein'
as how we ain't anywhere near town, we need to bury this body now." ** (904) Agatha: "If you've got some
shovels, we'll buy 'em off you for handsome." (915) J'hzuu: "Or for shovels,
yes." (928) DM: The Windy Crag is the largest (and
most expensive) tavern in Safeton and with good reason. Besides having an
excellent selection of drinks on tap and a groaning board laden with food at
most hours of the day or night, gleemen often stop by and regale the common
folk with stories of their well-worn travels. (928) Waitress: "Well, what'll it be?"
(to Kithil'rian) ** (928) Evarin is about to crack the whip on the
cart's horses when he catches sight of J'hzuu's offered hand. "Uhm, well,
that's more'n enough for the losses we took on Market!" ** (928) Setath: "We might have a hoe here. We
could help you too if'n you want. 'Tis the least we could do for the
gold." (915) J'hzuu: ((Erm... sorry, the inn is
Drathmar, yes?)) (928) DM: (yes, because I don't want Drathmar to
feel like he's not doing anything) (935) Mini (exit): (904) Agatha: "I'm not sure if you'd
want to. It's a dreadful sight. Looks like a pack of wolves got to her the
way's she's all torn up." (915) J'hzuu: ((All good. Just wasn't sure
how a waitress and inn appeared in the middle of nowhere, especially since
there's no magic allowed)) ** (901) Kith was sitting at a table, opposite thee
door leading from the main street into the tavern. He glances up at the
Waitress as she comes over. "Rubies Bloodwine" He spoke softly,
glaning around for a moment then back to her "If I needed information
about the land and rule hereabouts who would I speak too" ** (915) J'hzuu: "They can help dig the
hole, no?" (928) DM: ((as you know, I run split groups from
time to time.)) (915) J'hzuu: (Indeed. You're going to run
both now,or just Drath?)) (928) Waitress: "A tupper glass of
bloodwine then. That'll be ten silver pence." She sizes you up and down as
if trying to judge what you're about. "Yer a tough
customer all right. No foolish sword talk by the looks o' you. I'd say
more but that depends on the color of your coin." (928) DM: ((both, of course.)) (928) DM: ((besides, Zane does it to me all the
time. ^^)) (904) Agatha: "I don't see the harm in
that. Just so long as they leave the layin' of the dead to
us." (901) Kith: He nods and he pulls out a
shilling, then 2 crowns. He places the shilling in her palm "for the
drink" he holds up the two crowns "for the other" (901) Kith: *4 gold crowns (forgot shilling
wasnt an actual coin) )) (928) Waitress: "Name's Namaria by the way.
Namaria of Tencrowns up north by the southern plains. A
pleasure to meet you, neighbor." (as she
palms the crowns) "If'n you want to talk about daggers and deeds,"
(lowers her voice above barely a whisper) "you might want to speak with
Randallson. An' be sure to have a cinnabun in hand. He's addicted ta
them." ** (915) J'hzuu allows the men to work - it saves him
doing it. ** ** (901) Kith He forces a slight smile onto his face
as he nods to her and holds up another crown "Where can I find him?"
** (928) Namaria: "My but aren't you a shining
pearl o' worth? Either here or at Lady Gold's manor. He's her astrologer, so
they say." (928) Namaria: "You do know about the feast
in two days hence, right? Sellswords and wonderblades coming
from all parts o' Kern at the request of Dame Gold. You look like you
might'n fit there." ** (901) Kith He nods again, forcing another smile,
though he did not feel like it. "Can you describe him to me, it would be
very helpful." He nods slightly "Aye, that I might, and you may call
me Kith" ** ** (928) Setath hops off the cart with a dingy hoe
and tugs at Evarin to join him. "Might as well put that
coin to work then. The sooner she's buried, the sooner we can get home.
I'm hungry." ** (928) Namaria: "Oh, he's 'bout the height
o' a tallspear and ten or eleben stone by the looks o' you. Addicted to
cinnabuns and buttercake, panfry and applecrumbs. He's a spellbeard though he
has the good sense not ta cast here on account o' Dame Gold. Not since the duchess
had a fallin' out with her if'n you know what I mean." ** (928) Namaria tightens the drawstrings on her
apron as she casts a roving eye around the room before coming back to rest on
you. "Cook's wavin' at me and wonnnerin' what the wait is. Can I get you
anythin' else while we're at it, sweetling?" ** (901) Kith: "Aye, I think I do. You have
been very helpful, and nay, there is nothing else I need right now, but you are
kind for asking" (928) DM: The two farmers begin to make headway
on the nearly hardpacked dirt...slowly at first but within the space of an
hour, an open grave is ready to receive the headless corpse atop J'hzuu's disc. (928) Namaria: "I'll be back with yer tupper glass then." (turns
around with a flounce of her skirts and scoots) (904) Agatha: "Ya might want to turn
away. This ain't so much a body as what's left over." ** (901) Kith as she walks away he turns, his face
falling back to looking grim, and wary, with a touch of sadness around his
eyes. He looked around for a man similar to the one she had descirbed to him ** ** (904) Agatha isn't too eager to lift the cover
herself. ** (928) Setath: "Pshaw. When you seen a
gutless pig on the way ta bacon, what's annuder body?" ** (916) Kha pulls back the blanket and takes the
womans shawl before dumping her into the grave ** (928) Evarin: "Um, Settie, they weren'
lyin. Look." (he points at the remains that peek
out from beneath the cover) ** (904) Agatha smiles. "Hmph. Good point. Don't say I didn't warn ya."
** (928) DM: He brings up his hand to cover his
mouth and turns away, his skin rapidly paling and turning a shade of green as
he retches. (928) Setath: "AAAAAAGH!!!" (follows Evarin in suit) ** (904) Agatha swallows hard as she helps move the
body. ** ** (916) Kha helps cover the body letting the Farmers
recover ** (928) Setath: "Where...where...didja find
dat?" (after he recovers and composes himself) "Scared the stuffin' out o' me for the longest time!By the grace of Benvolio!" ** (928) Namaria comes back after a few minutes
bearing a crystal glass filled with a bubbling crimson-purplish liquid along
with a bottle half-full of the same liquid on a silver tray and places it on
Kith's table. A copper key is next to the glass, hidden almost unobtrusively
but still noticeable. She winks and mouths, "For later." ** ** (904) Agatha grimly focuses on the task.
"Found her on the road just a ways back. Looks like she ran and then she
fought. She didn't have a chance." ** (916) Kha: "Not to much further down the
road, found the corpse of a two legged thing with the head and feet of an
animal not too far away as well." (928) Evarin: "Um...." (904) Agatha: "Kha! Don't you go
scarin' them anymore then they ought to!" (904) Agatha: ((ought to be*)) (916) Kha: "They should know whats wandering
around in their woods." (928) Setath: "I think I'ma goin' to be
sick. We best be goin' soon, Evvie." ** (904) Agatha rise from
the body and begins to cover it. "I don't blame ya. It's a horrible
thing." ** ** (901) Kith Forces another smile and he nods at
her, and as she leaves, he sighs, glancing at the key, and he picks it up,
gripping it tightly for a minute as his thoughts wadner, then he shakes his
head, sliding it into a pocket, though he has no intention of using it. He
picks up his glass and takes a small sip of the liquid, barely noticing the
flavor as he continues scanning the room, making sure Randallson isn't there,
before watching the door ** (904) Agatha: "Tell me. Have you heard
any tales of something unnatural sneaking around recently?" (928) Evarin: "Um...you tell her,
Settie." (915) J'hzuu: ((Erk... I've really got to
head off and do some stuff, or shit's goin to hit the fan. Seeya tomorrow/next
week folks)) (915) J'hzuu:
Disconnecting from server... (915) Matt (exit): (901) Kith: See ya, good luck with whatever
it is)) (928) Setath: "Weeelll...we been seein'
things out o' the corners o' our eyes, you know? As if things weren't s'posed
to be there, an' they weren't there when you looked later. There was a man.
'Least I thought he looked like a man. 'Cept I couldn't look at him. Like I was 'fraid to. Couldn't see past him, just couldn't
look at him. He'd come up, up the road from the town and look over our fields.
Neber said anything, neber wanted nothing. That was a couple o' weeks ago. Once
evry so often, he'd come. And then after the sandy moon went full, he stopped
comin'." (928) DM: ((OOC: Recall that Andurin has three
moons: Beviir, a beige colored or sand colored moon; Tintagel, a silver or pale
white colored moon; and Elantyreth, an aqua or sapphire blue colored moon.
Beviir is the largest and Elantyreth is the smallest.)) (916) Kha: (( AFK
for a smoke )) (904) Agatha: "Anything else? Strange tracks?Folks diappearin'
suddenly?" (928) Evarin: "Nopers. Nuttin.Jus this strange man, all in black." (seems to remember) "Oh, an' headless
chickens one day. At first we thought a 'coon had gotten in the poke. Now we t'ain't too sure." ** (928) Setath coughs violently some more.
"Pleasure to meet'cha though not at the body, may Solnor bless her
spirit." ** (928) Evarin: "Ays, the Silverseal bless
her soul." (looks up at Agatha) "Thanks for
the coin, missy, but we best be leavin now." (904) Agatha: "Could still be coons.
But just to be safe, you fellows might want to spread word around not to travel
alone and keep an eye out for anything strange. 'Sides horseless wagons with no
wheels, that is."
