Session Start: Thu Aug 23 18:42:49 2012

  • Rhyl and Xan were going to take a trip to the library to research ... stuff.

[Xandhil] (I don't remember what @_@)

[DiablotinNarrator] (well, you wanted at least to research the thing you encountered on your trip)

[Xandhil] (yes)

  • Rhyl is excited to go there, even though he probably gets to go all the time.

[Xandhil] Is it really that awesome?

  • Xandhil asks curiously

[Rhyl] It's pretty awesome!

[Rhyl] Also, this is getting me out of divination class.

  • Xandhil has probably been there, but never to do real research
  • Rhyl bounces cheerfully as you walk there.

[Xandhil] how does it work then? I mean, is it just like... getting special collections from the castalia or do they actually let you in the stacks?

  • Xandhil grins

[Xandhil] and is it 'getting you out of class' as in you're skipping? ^-^

[Rhyl] No no! I got permission to do this as a special project :)

[Rhyl] If I just skipped that would be... bad >.>

[Xandhil] yeah, I wondered :o

[Xandhil] are you gonna be able to come with us, then?

[Xandhil] as a special project?

[Rhyl] Yes... I think so, anyway.

[Rhyl] I mean, it's only going to be a few days, right?

[Rhyl] Well not days, but you know what I mean :)

[Xandhil] uhhh, really I have no idea @_@

[Rhyl] [sk] Cycles.

[Xandhil] but I mean

[Xandhil] it will be awesome

[Xandhil] and we will probably learn all kinds of things!

[Rhyl] Yeah. And if they give trouble, maybe Taz can convince them that he needs me to help out. They listen to him more.... well, more than me, anyway.

[Xandhil] how does that work, anyway?

[Rhyl] What?

  • Xandhil shakes his head

[Xandhil] oh, nevermind

[Xandhil] taz.

  • Xandhil just shrugs

[Rhyl] How does Taz work?

  • Rhyl is puzzled.
  • Xandhil grins

[Xandhil] I just don't know why anyone would listen to him half the time :V

[Rhyl] Wellll. They kind of ... need him. or at least, he's useful to them.

[Xandhil] I guess...

[Xandhil] (Have I told them about Mercy yet?)

[Rhyl] One, most of the Hlath clan aren't the fightery type, so he's good at that. And two, he makes babies, and people seem to want them >.>

[Rhyl] (you told Rhyl already... don't know if you told Taz yet. it could have been off-screen)

[Xandhil] (okay)

[Xandhil] have they hit you up for the baby making bits yet?

[Rhyl] ah. no... probably not until I'm older.

  • Rhyl says, blushing a bit.

[Xandhil] after school?

[Rhyl] And even then... I mean, I don't think I'll ever be a sire, not like as a full-time thing.

[Rhyl] Maybe if someone really asked for me specifically.... although I don't know why they would.

[Xandhil] you never know

  • Xandhil shakes his head, thinking about Mercy

[Rhyl] Well, I don't have the blue eyes.

  • Rhyl says as if that explains things.

[Xandhil] no, but your babies still could, I think?

[Xandhil] I mean, Taz's eyes aren't really like fathers anyway, so who knows?

  • Xandhil thinks

[Xandhil] really only Em's are.

[Rhyl] uh... maybe? probably, I guess. But they might see it as less of a good chance.

[Rhyl] Anyway... I'd rather have babies I'll actually, you know, ever see >.>

[Xandhil] yeah.

  • Xandhil agrees

[Xandhil] I guess he's happy with things though

[Xandhil] I just wish he could come home sometimes :/

[Rhyl] Yeah...

[Xandhil] or would... Anyway >.>

[Rhyl] Anyway, you asked about the library...

[Rhyl] You're supposed to work with a librarian. You tell them what you're looking for, and they help you find it. But, especially if it's going to be a lot of books or whatever, they will let you come into the shelves and look too, at least they will if they like you.

[Rhyl] So they don't wind up bringing you 50 useless books.

[Xandhil] cool :D

[Xandhil] well... we're pretty likeable.... :3

[Rhyl] yeah :)

[DiablotinNarrator] You arrive at the library, which is a huge white-stone spiral tower.

  • Xandhil pauses for a moment, considering how many books there must be

[Xandhil] . o O ( [3! )

  • Rhyl leads the way inside.
  • Rhyl knows his way around here pretty well, and goes straight to a window with a woman seated behind it.

[Rhyl] [sk] Hello... we're looking for some information about a particular creature.

  • NPC1 is now known as Librarian

[Librarian] [sk] What sort of creature?

  • Rhyl glances to you to describe it more.
  • Xandhil will do so, describing the featureless mask face and the light and so on

[Xandhil] [sk] It was something we encountered traveling here from Sarasagel

  • Xandhil uses respectful terms of respectfulness ;3
  • Librarian listens attentively, taking down a few notes.

[Librarian] [sk] Well, I haven't heard of anything like that, but we can certainly see if there is anything in any of the records...

  • Librarian is interrupted by the arrival of a man.
  • Librarian is now known as OtherLibrarian

[OtherLibrarian] [sk] I'll take care of it, Tirael.

[DiablotinNarrator] She abruptly defers to whoever this guy is, and he comes around to talk to you.

[Rhyl] [w] oh wow.

  • Xandhil eyes Rhyl
  • Rhyl whispers as he's making his way around to join you.

[Xandhil] [w] whaaat?

  • Xandhil smiles at the New Librarian :3

[Rhyl] [w] Rhyl uss'Qurret. He's.. important. You've heard Mom talk about him, right?

  • OtherLibrarian is now known as Rhyl2

[Xandhil] [w] huh, yeah.

  • Xandhil probably knows he was her boss before she met San?
  • Rhyl is excited just to see him, apparently *_*

[DiablotinNarrator] (yeah, and she might have talked about him as a scholar and such as well... who spent some time on your plane, etc.)

[Xandhil] (Xan may know more about him from San and his old notes and such as well)

[DiablotinNarrator] (right, that too)

  • Rhyl2 comes to greet you.
  • Rhyl2 is silver-haired, handsome, probably about middle-aged you'd guess, two rings through his lower lip, otherwise not much visible decoration.
  • Rhyl2 greets you politely.
  • Xandhil greets him respectfully in return
  • Rhyl is suuper-respectful @_@

[Xandhil] [sk] we are honoured by your attention, sir.

[Rhyl2] [sk] Well, it is not every day we have scholars from other planes.

[Rhyl2] [sk] And, if I am not very much mistaken, you're Dozilva do Baru's son.

  • Rhyl2 says to Rhyl.
  • Rhyl goes all sort of flustered and stammery, but manages to agree that yes, he is, sir.

[Rhyl2] [sk]... or are both of you? Now, I ought to remember this... but you don't much look like her.

  • Rhyl2 says to you, Xan.

[Xandhil] [sk] Serhyl is my brother. But I was born from another mother.

  • Rhyl2 nods.

[Xandhil] [sk]we have another brother who lives here as well, but he is less scholarly >.>

[Rhyl2] [sk] Ah, yes.

[Rhyl2] [sk] Well, I think I got most of what you were asking about. If you would follow me, I can take you to the section dealing with creatures.

[Xandhil] [sk] thank you very much, sir.

  • Rhyl2 asks you a few more questions about the entity as you climb the central spiral of the building.
  • Xandhil grins over at rhyl jr, who is still all flustered, no doubt :3
  • Rhyl is a bit overwhelmed for talking, right now @_@

[Rhyl] . o O (eeee)

  • Xandhil will answer as best he can
  • Rhyl2 escorts you to the relevant section, which is ...vast.

[Xandhil] @_@

[Xandhil] oh wow... :o

[Rhyl2] [sk] We can narrow it down, don't worry.

  • Xandhil turns around, taking in all of the books @_@ [3
  • Xandhil nods
  • Rhyl2 scans the shelves, selecting a volume here and one there. He'll let you two carry them rather than doing it himself ;)
  • Xandhil is happy to do so
  • Rhyl2 glances back when you are both laden with books.

[Rhyl2] [sk] That's probably enough to start, hm?

[Rhyl] [sk] Yes sir, thank you sir.

[Xandhil] [sk] yes, thank you

[Xandhil] [sk] sir :3

  • Rhyl2 shows you to a table where you can sit and read.

[Rhyl2] [sk] If you have further inquiries after you've gone through these, I will be pleased to assist you further.

[Xandhil] [sk] Your assistance is very...generous, sir.

  • Xandhil can't find quite the right word, but that will do

[Rhyl] [sk] We're very honoured by your deigning to help us.

  • Xandhil wonders if it is just because of mom, but can't think of how to ask that politely :3
  • Xandhil nods to reinforce his brother's statement

[Rhyl2] [sk] I hope it will answer your inquiry.

  • Rhyl2 leaves you to it, then.
  • Xandhil wishes he could talk in people's heads the way dad and father can >.>

[Rhyl] @_@

  • Xandhil will select a likely looking book and crack it open

[Xandhil] [w] do you think it was just because of mom?

[Rhyl] [w] probably? unless it was because of you being really obviously from another plane.

[Xandhil] >.>

[Xandhil] [w] True...

[Rhyl] [w] oh my gods, that was so cool though. If I ever do get a job here, I'd be working under him, and ...

[Rhyl] >.>

  • Rhyl 's phrase has ... various nuances ;)
  • Xandhil smirks

[Rhyl] [w] I should ask Mom how to impress him @_@

[Xandhil] [w] I guess you'd have to ask mom what that's like... yeah @_@

[Rhyl] [w] ... I should probably feel like that's weirder than I do... I don't know. Living here makes things seem more ... normal, I guess, that would be weird back home.

[Xandhil] [w] Well... it is normal here.

[Rhyl] [w] yeah.

  • Rhyl shrugs.

[Rhyl] [w] also... well, I'd probably do it anyway @_@

[Xandhil] [w] And our family is weird back home anyway >.>

[Xandhil] [w] what do you mean?

[Rhyl] [w] uh... him >.>

  • Rhyl is blushing more.
  • Xandhil smirks again

[Xandhil] [w]Well I guess he is pretty good looking ;p

[Rhyl] [w] And smart, and mysterious, and ... um. we should probably read, I guess >.>

  • Rhyl picks up one of the books to start going through it, still blushing.
  • Xandhil smirks harder
  • Xandhil reads though
  • Xandhil tries not to get tooooo distracted :3

[DiablotinNarrator] The two of you read through the various books for what feels like a few hours to you.

[Rhyl] [w] Oh, I think I found something!

  • Rhyl says at last.
  • Xandhil looks up

[Xandhil] hmm?

[Rhyl] [w] Well, it sounds like it anyway - it talks about the mask, and the light and stuff.

[Rhyl] [w] This book calls it a 'visilight'.

[Rhyl] [w] It says they're attracted to ... beauty, perfection... they try to absorb it, I guess, and eradicate whatever they find ugly.

[Xandhil] >.>

[Xandhil] [w] can I see?

[Rhyl] [w] sure.

  • Rhyl hands you the book.
  • Xandhil will read through the description

[DiablotinNarrator] It talks about how the creature can absorb another being's image, personality, charm, presence...

[DiablotinNarrator] As it does, it grows more powerful and more difficult to resist its paralyzing gaze.

[Xandhil] [w] That sounds right... D:

[Rhyl] [w] Does it absorb it... forever?

  • Xandhil reads the part about absorbing again
  • Xandhil looks troubled

[Xandhil] [w] I don't know...

[Rhyl] [w] You do seem sort of... well, I didn't want to say anything, but just a bit... not yourself, I don't know...

[Xandhil] [w] I've felt... off, I guess, since we fought it, but Justen says he hasn't noticed anything...

  • Xandhil seems distressed

[Rhyl] [w] Well, that's Justen :p

[Xandhil] :/

[Rhyl] [w] I don't mean that in a bad way but... he sees the you that's inside his head, you know?

[Xandhil] [w] I guess. I would think he would notice more, but I don't know, maybe not :(

  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] ...[w] maybe there is more about it in one of the other books, now that we know what it is :/

  • Rhyl nods.
  • Rhyl reads on for a while, but you don't seem to be finding much more than that.

[Rhyl] [w] If something did get... absorbed, maybe it can get fixed.

[Rhyl] [w] There are spells that help with that.

  • Rhyl says after a while longer.
  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [w]they're all clerical though, aren't they?

[Rhyl] [w] Yeah, well, short of like... Wish or things like that.

[Rhyl] [w] We're supposed to be seeing some clerics, though, aren't we? ;)

  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [w] If we can find them >.>

[Xandhil] [w] Well at least we have a reason to approach them now? More than just ' we're nosy'

[Xandhil] :/

  • Rhyl nods.

[Xandhil] [w]Maybe they can fix Taz to >.>

[Rhyl] [w] Hey... yeah! that would be great, if they could.

  • Rhyl looks around.

[Rhyl] [w] We should probably get back anyway - I'm getting hungry.

  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [w] what do we do with the books?

[Rhyl] [w] They have clerks who'll clean them up.

[Rhyl] [w] They don't trust us to put them back ourselves ;)

  • Xandhil nods and finishes making notes about the monsters that ate his charm @_@
  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [w]

[Xandhil] Well

[Xandhil] [w] you know how mom and father met >.>

  • Rhyl stifles a laugh.

[Rhyl] [w] If I steal a book, and *he* comes after me, that would be ok >.>

  • Xandhil snickes quietly
  • Rhyl gathers up his notebook and gets ready to leave.

[DiablotinNarrator] You arrive back at Taz's place to find that he and Justen have ... produced... a meal, probably by buying it from some street vendor.

[Justen] Surprise - it has mushrooms.

  • Justen says by way of greeting.

[Xandhil] :)

  • Xandhil kisses him
  • Tazenir rolls his eyes
  • Xandhil flips him off

[Rhyl] Most things do...

  • Tazenir grins

[Tazenir] I like 'em.

[Xandhil] You would :V

[Rhyl] Either that or seaweed. Sometimes both.

[Xandhil] its fine

[Justen] Oh, and guess what we heard, while we were getting food.

[Xandhil] what?

[Justen] There was a preacher from the Serpent folks who was doing his thing earlier, but we missed him. But he might be back ... tomorrow... >.>

  • Justen shrugs at the lack of day/night referrents.

[Xandhil] heh

[Xandhil] sell, that's cool!

[Xandhil] what were people sayig?

  • Justen shrugs, glancing to Taz.
  • Tazenir also shrugs

[Tazenir] about what you would expect. They're crazy and probably dangerous, but some people are curious anyway.

[Xandhil] hmm, yeah

[Tazenir] Mostly people are waiting for them to get arrested :p

[Xandhil] yay >.>

[Justen] So we should go try to see him?

[Xandhil] well, yeah!

[Justen] Or is that likely to turn into a riot or something >.>

[Xandhil] it shouldn;t be that bad...?

  • Xandhil eyes Taz

[Tazenir] They didn't riot today

[Tazenir] I guess more people will be expecting him if he comes back next cycle

[Rhyl] Yeah, but now they'll know he's here... exactly.

[Xandhil] But we already knew he was here, didn't we?

[Rhyl] They come and go...

[Xandhil] have there been riots or anything before?

[Rhyl] Not really... just guards breaking things up.

[Justen] That sort of thing can get rough if people don't feel like being broken up.

[Xandhil] It's not the levellers, Justen...

[Justen] :/

[Xandhil] Things are different here >.>

[Tazenir] Yeah, people don't wanna fuck with the authorities

[Justen] Okay...

  • Justen nibbles at some roasted... cubes on a skewer.

[Xandhil] it'll be fine :)

[Xandhil] besides, we can get out if we need to

  • Justen nods.
  • Tazenir eyes the two colourplaners

[Tazenir] Still...

[Tazenir] maybe it would be better if you two weren't so conspicuous :p

[Justen] We can probably manage that.

  • Justen says with a glance to you.
  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] yeah we kind of figured

[Xandhil] we already talked about it some

  • Xandhil says around a bite of mushroom

[Justen] We might need to borrow clothes, though?

[Xandhil] oh, yeah...

[Xandhil] I have some spells, but they won't really last long enough I don't think

[Tazenir] what, you couldn't pack anything blacK? :p

[Justen] Probably some of your things would fit me.

[Xandhil] I hardly own anything black!

  • Justen says to Taz.

[Tazenir] yeah, you, sure...

  • Tazenir eyes Xan

[Rhyl] Well, I can loan you a robe or something, Xan.

[Tazenir] You'll have to go shopping in Rhyl's closet :p

[Xandhil] that'll work

[Xandhil] thanks :)

[Rhyl] Okay, I'll bring one when I come back. I should go back to the academy for sleep anyway... Jevan's probably waiting.

[Xandhil] have fun ^-^

[Rhyl] ...sleeping >.>

[Tazenir] yeah whatever ;p

  • Rhyl takes off, then.

[Justen] Kid gets around ;)

[Tazenir] that's just the academy, I guess

[Xandhil] well, he seems to enjoy it, anyway :p

  • Xandhil eyes Justen

[Xandhil] are you tired at all?

[Justen] Don't they... okay, this may be a weird question. but ... do they encourage them to fuck each other, or does that just... happen anyway, because they're teenagers?

[Tazenir] they expect it

[Tazenir] I don't think they have to encourage it

[Tazenir] just... that's how it's always been now

[Tazenir] I guess

[Justen] Always boys with boys and girls with girls? or do they mix it up?

[Tazenir] boys with boy, girls with girls.

[Justen] Huh.

[Xandhil] I think it's because, well, of how things work here

[Xandhil] because sex is part of your relationships with people above and below you?

[Justen] how do you mean?

[Justen] oh, yeah... you said that.

  • Justen recalls >.>

[Xandhil] So you have to be used to fucking people even if maybe that's not what you're in to

[Xandhil] for some things it doesn't matter as much

[Xandhil] but for all the... academic wizardy stuff, its huge

[Tazenir] Yeah

[Tazenir] You can get along without doing that just fine :p

[Justen] Lucky it's not like that at the Castalia... or maybe not lucky, I dunno.

  • Justen says, eyeing you with a smirk.

[Xandhil] :p

[Xandhil] well it might have gotten you in some more classes :p

[Justen] Heh.

[Xandhil] but I don't think you would like it, really

[Xandhil] because you don't really get to choose?

[Xandhil] Rhyl is lucky...

[Justen] Yeah.. that would be weird.

[Xandhil] or he's just Rhyl >.>

  • Tazenir shrugs again

[Justen] And like... your job is fucking girls! Which sounds like it would be awesome, except I guess you don't really get to choose them either ...

  • Justen says to Taz.

[Tazenir] heh

[Tazenir] it's not so bad really :p

[Tazenir] but probably not as great as it sounds >.>

[Justen] you can still fuck other people, though, right?

[Tazenir] I'm not complaining, anyway

[Tazenir] yeah

[Justen] well, that's okay then.

[Tazenir] not supposed to get 'em knocked up, though

[Tazenir] but shit happens

[Tazenir] it hasn't yet, though, but I guess it could >.>

[Justen] oh, yeah... and I guess they'd probably be able to tell it was yours, huh.

[Tazenir] I dunno

[Tazenir] sometimes yes, sometimes no?

  • Justen nods.

[Tazenir] It's like, fuck, you couldn't tell that Rhyl and Dez and I were sire by San :p

[Justen] No, I guess...

[Xandhil] >.>

[Justen] Rhyl, maybe... they kind of have something in the face that's similar...

  • Xandhil frowns.

[Xandhil] Dez totally looks like him!

[Xandhil] only taller

[Justen] Yeah except tall

[Tazenir] not like you do though :p

[Xandhil] >.>

  • Xandhil keeps his mouth shut, not wanting to get in to old arguments

[Justen] I guess maybe I am getting kind of tired...

  • Justen says, sensing a little tension.

[Xandhil] okay :3

[Justen] It's hard to know when to sleep here @_@

[Tazenir] you'll adjust

[Tazenir] ... probably.

[Tazenir] anyway, I was going to see if you guys wanted to go out again, but I'm guessing not :p

[Justen] Oh, uh.

  • Justen glances to you.

[Justen] If you wanna go, you don't have to take us everywhere.

[Xandhil] maybe not tonight? But you go if you want to, Taz, yeah

  • Xandhil smiles

[Tazenir] heh, yeah, I can take a hint ;p

[Tazenir] I see you guys later then.

[Xandhil] You have fun too ^-^

[Justen] Yeah :)

[Tazenir] heh, yeah, I will, ]:D

  • Tazenir will head out for some amusement then
  • Justen gets the mattress out.
  • Xandhil will help

[Xandhil] are you actually sleepy?

[Justen] Not really... I was just saying that.

  • Xandhil smiles

[Xandhil] well... we can relax for a bit anyway

[Justen] yeah...

  • Justen gathers you into his arms for snuggles.

[Xandhil] so...

  • Xandhil starts after he is comfortably snuggled up

[Xandhil] we found out what that thing was

[Justen] oh?

[Xandhil] yeah

[Justen] what was it?

[Xandhil] It's called a visilight

  • Justen listens

[Xandhil] the way the book described it, with the mask and everything, was just about right

[Xandhil] they're attracted to beauty and charm and perfection >.>

[Xandhil] is what it says

[Justen] heh..

  • Justen nuzzles your neck

[Justen] Well that's why it went after you, then

[Xandhil] yeah...

[Xandhil] but they *absorb* that stuff D:

[Justen] ...?

[Xandhil] and store it in the masks

[Xandhil] D:

[Xandhil] I think

[Justen] oh, ew.

[Xandhil] but we couldn't figure out of it is like... forever, or what.

[Xandhil] But I still don't feel right

[Xandhil] and Rhyl says he noticed it too

  • Xandhil snuggles closer, sounding worried

[Justen] :/

[Justen] Xan... if you're worried about it, we'll figure it out.

[Xandhil] There are lots of monsters that do that sort of thing

[Xandhil] Its a Thing.

[Justen] You don't look different to me, and if you're acting any different, I don't know if it's just because we're here, and things are different here.

[Xandhil] but the spells to fix it are all divine

  • Justen nods.

[Xandhil] Rhyl said you probably don't notice because you just see the me in your head ]..

[Xandhil] >.>

[Justen] So we can get a priest to look at you when we get home.

  • Justen kisses you.

[Justen] I see the you that I love.

[Xandhil] yes

[Xandhil] . o O (But what if that's not the real me @_@)

[Xandhil] we are trying to find priests here... >.>

[Justen] oh, yeah. so maybe they can figure out something too.

[Xandhil] yeah

[Xandhil] Maybe they can do something for Taz, too, since he won't come home :/

[Justen] :/

[Justen] I thought that was mostly because of ... San, and Ilyana and stuff...

[Xandhil] well... yes...

[Xandhil] but that's because of the Shadow Curse ]:|

[Xandhil] ..

[Xandhil] :(

  • Justen hugs you closer.

[Justen] Would he want to ask them about it?

[Xandhil] I don't know

[Xandhil] I can try and talk to him, maybe

  • Justen nods.
  • Justen strokes your hair.

[Xandhil] mm

[Justen] Hopefully he'll see it's a good idea.

[Xandhil] yeah

[Xandhil] for mom and dad, even

[Xandhil] if nothing else ]..

[Xandhil] >.>

[Justen] I mean, it wouldn't *force* him to go home, it would just give him that option.

[Xandhil] yeah

[Justen] ...not nothing else.

[Justen] you, and Dez, and Em...

[Justen] Even if he and San don't get along, there are lots of other people who matter.

[Xandhil] yeah.

[Xandhil] well, I dunno

[Xandhil] It's not like he and Dez are all that close >.>

[Justen] he doesn't really seem to do 'close'... .I don't think that means he doesn't care, though.

[Xandhil] Taz or Dez? :p

[Justen] ... either.

[Xandhil] yeah..

[Xandhil] well I guess I'm not really one to talk, mostly >.>

  • Xandhil hugs though

[Xandhil] mostly

  • Justen smiles

[Justen] I'm glad I'm the exception ;)

[Justen] mmm...

[Xandhil] mmmhmm ^-^

  • Justen kisses you with more purpose
  • Xandhil will happily give in to your purpose ^-^

[Justen] [w] It was incredibly hot seeing you with all those other people... but I like having you to myself too ;)

[Xandhil] [w] I'm glad....

[Justen] [w] makes me know just how lucky I am.

[Xandhil] [w] oooh? ^-^

[Justen] [w] because I get you all the time, whenever I want. no line ;)

  • Xandhil kisees

[Xandhil] [w]That's right - any time

[Justen] :)

  • Justen will give you some speedy lovin', just in case Taz decides to come home ;)
  • Xandhil will try and convince you that this is an unlikely scenario ;)

[DiablotinNarrator] (heh)

[DiablotinNarrator] Ok, presumably you sleep, and eventually wake up...

[Justen] So, we're looking like shadar-kai today?

[Xandhil] well

[Xandhil] not "today"

[Xandhil] but yes

[Justen] -_-

[Justen] stupid always dark.

  • Justen grumbles.

[Xandhil] heh

[Xandhil] at least there are stars now >.>

  • Justen gets changed, then - I'm sure he makes a very pretty SK boy ;)
  • Xandhil probably looks decently like Dez when he is all disguised

[Justen] ...clothes.

  • Justen remembers
  • Xandhil doesn't go so pale

[Xandhil] hee

[Xandhil] yes they are handy ^-^

[Tazenir] here, try this

  • Tazenir will come out and give you some stuff to try
  • Justen looks skeptical that some of these things are entire outfits, but eventually finds one that's mostly made of wraps/straps, and so

flexible enough to fit him well.

[Justen] Did you have fun?

  • Justen asks Taz with a grin.

[Tazenir] eventually, yeah

[Justen] ooh?

[Tazenir] I met this one girl there while you two were entertaining, and she was back again

[Tazenir] went back to her place and crashed out there

[Justen] cool

[Justen] what's her name? or do you know ;)

[Tazenir] Sabren

[Tazenir] didn't ask her clan though :p

[Justen] does this bit.. go around the neck, or what?

  • Justen tries to get the outfit arranged.

[Xandhil] well it can't be all that serious then ;p

[Tazenir] yeah here, turn around

  • Rhyl shows up, and has, as promised, a grey silk robe for Xan.

[Rhyl] Here, this one is a bit short for me now, so it should be okay for you...

[Xandhil] thanks -_-

  • Xandhil will try it on
  • Tazenir will get Justen adjusted

[Justen] I sense a double standard >.>

[Xandhil] looks good :D

  • Xandhil pets his exposed skin
  • Justen blushes - or darkens, anyway ;)

[Xandhil] lickable ^-^

[Rhyl] Yeah, if you had some piercings or something, you'd blend in even better!

[Justen] uh... that's ok >.>

[Tazenir] yeah, everyone will just assume you're some kind of prude

[Xandhil] hah!

[Justen] hmph

[Xandhil] you can show them wrong ^-^

[Rhyl] Ok, are we ready? we can pick up some breakfast on the way :)

  • Rhyl is excited to get going.

[Xandhil] I think we're good

[Justen] Sure.

[Tazenir] right then

[Tazenir] get the fuck out of my house :V

[Justen] We already got the fuck in your house ;)

  • Tazenir will bring his chain, just in case >.>

[Tazenir] I'm burning that mattress :p

[Xandhil] :p

  • Justen also has his flail, since that is probably just metal and not obviously colour-y.

[Xandhil] (I dunno about my sword - it is magic)

[Xandhil] (may have a fancy hilt or something)

[DiablotinNarrator] You head to the marketplace, then. You can, as Rhyl suggested, grab some food there quite easily, and find the area where the preacher is supposedly going to appear.

[DiablotinNarrator] (eh, you could wrap it if you're worried)

[Xandhil] (true)

[DiablotinNarrator] (probably no one will look *that* closely)

[DiablotinNarrator] (or they might just think you have a colour plane sword, which I'm sure is not *totally* rare)

[Xandhil] (fair)

[Xandhil] (hah, actually if it is from broventures he found it on the SP anyway :V)

[DiablotinNarrator] (heheh, true)

[DiablotinNarrator] You find someplace to sit/lean/stand while you wait. Eventually, a considerable crowd has gathered.

  • Xandhil munches on some kind of pastry thing filled with... mushrooms :V

[Xandhil] [w] I guess word has spread...

  • Rhyl2 is now known as Preacher
  • Justen nods.
  • Justen is a bit on guard, just in case things go bad, despite your reassurances...

[Xandhil] [W] oh, there he is!

  • Xandhil points out a likely looking figure
  • Xandhil squeezes your hand reassuringly
  • Preacher steps up onto the base of a statue of some hero you don't recognize. He is tall, black-hair cut short, in a very plain robe, and has no visible mods that you can see. He looks young-ish, you'd say.

[Preacher] I'm very gratified to see so many of you here.

  • Preacher 's voice carries well, especially as the crowd falls quiet once he begins to speak.
  • Xandhil translates quietly for Justen as long as we're not attracting any attention
  • Xandhil will cast detect magic though

[Preacher] (yes, assume this is all in SK, I don't feel like typing it every time ;)

[Xandhil] (hee, yeah)

[Preacher] It shows that the word is spreading - that no matter how they try to stop it, it will continue to spread.

[Preacher] Vrag has not forsaken us, has shown us this blessing by the starlight that graces our skies and illuminates our way.

  • Xandhil listens

[Preacher] And yes, by the power that is granted to me, and to others - the power to heal, to cure the sick, even to raise up the dead.

  • Xandhil eyes Rhyl, because he isn't sure if this guy means raise the dead to life, or as undead
  • Rhyl shrugs.

[Preacher] Why would they wish to suppress this power, ask yourselves that.

  • Tazenir is watching the crowd more than the preacher

[Preacher] Is it because they prefer to have you weakened, suffering, downtrodden?

  • Tazenir rolls his eyes at that though

[Xandhil] ...

[Xandhil] [w] Okay maybe it is a *bit* like the levellers >.>

[Justen] >.>

[Xandhil] [w] no one is rioting!

[Tazenir] yet :p

[Preacher] We offer you freedom, and choice, and hope for something better.

[DiablotinNarrator] There is some murmuring in the crowd, and some people start whispering the guards are coming.

[Tazenir] [w] get ready to break for it...

[Rhyl] [w] yeah

  • Tazenir says to Justen, since he is the one who can theoretically teleport other people

[Rhyl] [w] but we should stick close to that guy. maybe we can get him out of here, and talk to him?

  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [w]Lets see if we can get closer now?

  • Rhyl and Justen nod.

[Tazenir] ]_[

  • Tazenir sighs and nods
  • Preacher continues with his speaking despite the imminent thread of guards

[Preacher] (threat)

  • Xandhil will try to weave close through the throng
  • Justen sticks close to you.

[Justen] [w] where do we go if we have to teleport? Taz's house?

[Xandhil] I guess, yeah

[Xandhil] [w]

  • Justen nods, wary

[DiablotinNarrator] Guards are indeed surrounding the crowd, at least those who haven't buggered off already.

[Xandhil] (Preacher is still preaching?)

  • Preacher sees them there, but continues, seemingly unafraid.

[Xandhil] [w] Maybe he can disappear on his own >.>

[Xandhil] (did my detect magic turn up anything on him?

  • Tazenir will make sure Rhyl is close to the others as well

[DiablotinNarrator] (oh, sorry - robe is magic, other than that nothing.)

  • Rhyl is also sticking close to you, yes

[DiablotinNarrator] "Disperse at once!" orders someone, presumably some high-ranking guard.

[DiablotinNarrator] Murmurs from the crowd, most of them begin doing so.

[Xandhil] [w] Come on...

  • Preacher stands tall, looking calm.

[Xandhil] (how close are we?)

[DiablotinNarrator] (say 15 feet by now?)

[Preacher] They can try to silence me - but the message will spread regardless.

[Xandhil] (close enough to hear us?)

[DiablotinNarrator] (for the preacher to hear you?)

[Xandhil] (yes)

[DiablotinNarrator] (probably, yes)

[Xandhil] (What's the crowd like here?)

[DiablotinNarrator] (thinning out)

  • Preacher does seem to notice you approaching

[Xandhil] ...[sk] will you come with us? We want to talk to you - about Vrag

  • Preacher eyes the guards.

[Xandhil] [sk] we can get away from here without any trouble

[Preacher] [sk] If you're trying to lure me in, I'm not falling for it.

[Xandhil] [sk] we're not!

[Rhyl] [sk] No really! We just want to talk, and also get out of here @_@

[Preacher] ...

[Preacher] [sk] All right.

[Xandhil] :D

[Xandhil] Justen come on, lets go then, he said he'd come.

[Tazenir] hurry it up..

  • Justen steps up, puts a hand on the guy's shoulder, and they disappear.

[Tazenir] (what just them?)

[DiablotinNarrator] (oops, sorry - yes, you can go with them :)

[Tazenir] (Well really it is Rhyl and Taz that are important >.>)

[Tazenir] (Since they can't teleport on their own)

[Justen] (yeah)

  • Justen would not leave them
  • Justen takes the lot back to Taz's house, then
  • Xandhil meets folks back there
  • Preacher looks around curiously.

[Preacher] [sk] We won't be able to stay here long. They'll come looking, and I wouldn't want you to get in trouble for harbouring me.

[Tazenir] Thanks

[Tazenir] [sk]

[Xandhil] [sk] Is there somewhere else you'

[Xandhil] ve been staying?

[Preacher] [sk] I have some safe places I can go.

  • Preacher says vaguely.
  • Xandhil nods

[Preacher] [sk] But at this point, probably better to get out of the city for a while. They know my face now.

  • Xandhil translates for Justen >.>

[Preacher] [sk] You said you wanted to talk about Vrag?

[Xandhil] [sk]Yes!

[Xandhil] [sk] For a few reasons...

[Preacher] [sk] All right...

[Xandhil] [sk] We want to know, what all you know about him... How you've been worshipping him... what you did before the stars came back @_@

[Preacher] [sk] ... That's a lot of questions, and we don't have a lot of time.

[Xandhil] [sk] I know.

[Preacher] [sk] Look...

[Xandhil] [sk] ...could we come with you?

[Preacher] [sk] ... I was going to say :)

[Xandhil] :D

  • Preacher looks younger when he smiles.

[Preacher] [sk] ... Where are we? I'm just trying to figure out the best way out of the city from here.

[Xandhil] [sk] in the Hlath compound.... but we can get out the same way we got here, if we go to the [wherever we came in to the city] gate.

  • Preacher nods.

[Xandhil] [sk] are they tracking you somehow?

[Preacher] [sk] They might be watching the gates, we might be better off to go a bit outside.

  • Xandhil nods

[Xandhil] [sk] we can do that

[Preacher] [sk] I don't know. It's possible they have wizards on the job.

  • Preacher says re. the tracking question.

[Justen] Ok, so.. we're going outside the city, like around where we came in?

  • Justen asks you.

[Xandhil] yes

  • Preacher notices, inevitably, that he's speaking a different language.

[Preacher] [sk] I'm getting the feeling this is more complicated than it appears.

[Xandhil] [sk] we can explain, I promise

[Preacher] [sk] All right.

[Preacher] [sk] I feel like I can trust you.

[Tazenir] [sk] Are we going to need supplies, before we get out of here?

  • Xandhil smiles

[Preacher] [sk] It's about a cycle to walk to Hlintarn - but it's usually safe travel.

  • Rhyl bounces with nervous excitement.

[Rhyl] [sk] I brought my spellbook just in case I'd need it!

[Xandhil] [sk] I already have things packed

  • Justen can help gather up some supplies, then.
  • Tazenir points at Xan and Justen

[Tazenir] Armour

[Justen] Right.

[Tazenir] and tell me you have at least some kind of weapon, Rhyl -_-

[Rhyl] Um... I have a dagger.

[Xandhil] ([sk])

[Xandhil] Right

[Tazenir] [Sk] well.. I guess you've got me :p

  • Xandhil loks to the pracher

[Xandhil] [sk] SO, um... what's your name? I'm Xan.

[Preacher] [sk] Ranighar.

  • Justen will whisk people away whenever everyone is ready, then.
