Epher brings the boys to the Plane of Elemental Fire and shows them some hospitality.


Session date: November 25, 2014
Diablotin date: Spring 2275

<Epher> I'm interested in staying a while longer :)
* Epher settles himself a little more comfortably, stretching his legs out
* Xandhil looks to Justen then, since this was his idea
<Xandhil> there is really not a lot of room in here >.>
<Justen> hmm...
<Justen> well, would you like to go somewhere else?
<Justen> or snuggle up in here ^-^
<Xandhil> hmmmm...
<Xandhil> where else could we go?
* Justen considers
<Justen> well, more or less anywhere, I guess
<Justen> home, if we wanted
* Epher also considers
<Xandhil> Home would work...
* Xandhil tried to remember how strewn with stuff the bedroom is from packing
<Epher> or I could show you my ... home, I suppose it is.
<Xandhil> oh?
<Epher> if you'd like
<Epher> I don't know if you trust me not to kidnap you ^-^
* Xandhil looks to Justen
<Justen> Where *is
* your home?
<Epher> The Plane of Fire.
<Epher> ... I'd make sure it was safe for you to be there
* Epher adds as an afterthought
<Justen> :what do you think?
<Xandhil> :veery curious! - I'm sure you'll fit right in ^-^
<Justen> :heh
<Xandhil> Well, if we're not going to, uh, get immolated...
<Epher> I can allow you to resist the fire, at least for a time. I would have to bring you back before that wore out.
<Justen> :I'm game if you are
<Xandhil> okay :)
<Xandhil> we were just talking about new experiences...
* Justen smirks a little at that
<Epher> Very well
* Epher will grant you the (temporary) ability to resist the element of fire
* Epher glances to Justen to see if he needs it too
<Epher> I think you'll be all right, but let me know if it gets too hot even for you ;)
<Xandhil> The plane.
* Xandhil clarifies, teasing.
<Epher> ... yes
* Justen chuckles
<Justen> All right, I won't try to tough it out
* Epher offers each of you a hand.
* Xandhil will take it
* Epher 's skin is warm to the touch, even moreso than Justen's, but not uncomfortably so
* Justen takes his other hand
* Xandhil also takes Justen's hand because
<Epher> I do promise I'll bring you back here before you come to any harm
<Xandhil> thank you
* Epher says, because saying the words seems to matter to him
<Justen> yes, thanks
* Epher plane shifts you to ... his home.
<DiablotinNarrator> The first thing you notice is, it's hot. You're not in pain, thanks to your fire resistance, but it's very hot, probably hotter than Xan would have experienced even in his travels
<Xandhil> woah
<DiablotinNarrator> The air feels stuffy and warm, but breathable
* Xandhil is probably instantly sweating
<DiablotinNarrator> Looking up, the sky looks like it's made of fire. The ground looks like it's made of cracked basalt or hardened lava or the like, but you can stand on it (even though it is also warm)
<Xandhil> :you must love this
* Xandhil looks all around to try and take everything in
<DiablotinNarrator> There are mountains (or maybe volcanos?) towards the horizon, and streams of flowing molten rock or metal winding through the landscape
<Justen> :so cosy
<Epher> Home sweet home
<Epher> I've already ensured that my dwelling is intact - plane shifting isn't very precise, I'm afraid, but I could fly us there
<Xandhil> oooh
<Xandhil> I can fly myself, actually...
<Xandhil> but I could follow :)
<Epher> very well
* Justen will be content with a genie-back ride ;)
* Xandhil will let out his wings then :D
* Epher flies in the direction of that range of mountains - which, as you draw closer, you can tell are in fact volcanos, oozing streams of lava
* Epher 's dwelling appears to be built (molded?) into the side of one of the volcanos
* Xandhil follows, trying not to get distracted by the landscapes
<Epher> (looking further, to the other side, you can see what looks like a city on a plane below, and there are occasionally little flitting lights in the distance that may be .. other entities flying around?)
* Epher lands at a large stone door, which he presses his hand to and opens
* Justen disembarks, still looking around excitedly
<Xandhil> it's beautiful here....
<Justen> There's a whole city over there?
* Epher nods
<Epher> Yes - to both of you.
* Xandhil smiles
* Epher leads you inside
* Epher 's home is shaped from the stone of the mountainside, with a little, uh, stream of lava running through it. It's slightly cooler inside, and you can tell why after you look around - he has books here
<Xandhil> ooooh...
* Xandhil oggles them
* Epher also seems inclined to decorate things with comfortable fabrics, which has not burst into flames
<Xandhil> (what are the books? :o)
<Justen> (things from other planes! weird stuff! old stuff!)
* Xandhil is excited for many reasons, including the fact that he can reall all the titles :D
<Xandhil> (read all)
<Epher> I can't really offer you refreshments, I'm afraid
<Xandhil> that's okay
* Xandhil tries to remember that we are not here for *book
* porn >.>
* Epher smiles as you ogle his shelves ;)
<Epher> it was a relief to find that all of this was still here when I returned
<Xandhil> I can imagine!
<Xandhil> you were gone quite a while...
* Epher nods
<Epher> there were magics to protect it, but still.. much can happen over that length of time.
* Xandhil nods
<Epher> I've also had a little time to ... tidy.
* Epher says with a slight smile
* Xandhil nods
* Justen has managed to locate the bed, which is a wide slab of stone with some pillows
* Justen sits down on it to try it out
<Justen> ... firm mattress.
* Justen teases
<Xandhil> heh
* Epher smiles
<Epher> is that all that's firm around here?
<Justen> hardly ^-^
<Xandhil> I may have been teasing Justen about Djinn for a month now....
<Xandhil> >.>
<Epher> oh?
<Xandhil> there are lots of intriguing stories ^-^
<Epher> ah, that sort of stories?
* Epher says with a sly smile
<Xandhil> mmhmm
<Epher> which did you prefer - the ones where the djinn is bound to serve his master no matter what, or the ones where the djinn seduces the mortal with his trickery ^-^
<Epher> those are the main kinds, I believe, unless they've invented more since I've been away
<Justen> Xan likes being the boss ;)
* Justen leans over to give you a kiss
<Xandhil> sometimes, yes.... ...
* Epher lets you rest for a short while longer, but then says
<Epher> I need to get you back soon
<Epher> I don't want to rush you, but... staying longer would be a bad idea
* Epher stands, though, and grabs one of the books off his shelf and offers it to you, Xan
<Epher> Here... a history of my people.
<Epher> ... if you'd find that interesting, that is.
* Epher says with a slightly playful smile
<Xandhil> yes
<Xandhil> thank you
* Xandhil smiles and uncurls from justen, reaching for the book
* Justen sits up as well, grinning broadly
* Epher steps to a stone chest and opens it to take out something. He retrieves a rather familiar looking flail, which he holds out to Justen
<Epher> I want you to have it.
<Justen> ... really?
<Epher> yes. you'll use it more than I do.
* Justen looks at you with a sort of "is it okay?" expression
<Justen> :are you going to put it in a museum if I say yes? ;)
<Xandhil> :No
<Xandhil> :he's giving it to you
<Xandhil> :Just don't let Sleyght see it >_
<Justen> :okay :)
<Justen> Thank you. I'd be honoured.
* Justen accepts it, then immediately has to put it down in order to pull on his clothes
* Xandhil also gets dress quickly
* Epher puts on his pants, because... I guess it seems polite?
* Epher will take your hands again, once you're ready, and transport you back to the material plane
* Epher 's aim was pretty good this time and you end up only a short distance outside your campsite
<Epher> (it probably also feels freeeeezing in comparison, especially since you're soaked with sweat which is now going to start cooling)
* Xandhil shivers and snuggles up reflexively to justen
* Justen puts his arm around you
<Xandhil> thank you again - for everything
<Epher> I thank you as well.
<Epher> I will come to your city when I can, and see you again... speak with those you've mentioned.
<Epher> For now, I have business to attend to at home - I've been absent for so long.
<Justen> it's been incredible
* Epher smiles
* Xandhil nods
<Xandhil> we'll look forward to that
<Epher> until we meet again, then
* Epher gives a slight nod and wave as he disappears
<Justen> ... no one is ever going to believe this.
<Xandhil> wow
<Xandhil> no
* Justen points out
<Xandhil> well
<Xandhil> I have this?
* Xandhil holds up the book, which is probably not written in any kind of normal language and who knows what the materials are
<Xandhil> Father is going to be jealous :V
<Justen> soo jealous
* Xandhil nods
* Justen gives you a squeeze
<Xandhil> so I guess what I'm saying is the important people will believe us ;)
<Justen> true
<Justen> let's get back to camp... before even I freeze ;)
* Xandhil nods
* Justen might be walkin' a bit funny on that hike ;)
<Xandhil> we don't have to walk, hyou know...
<Justen> oh, true :)
* Justen is much happier to teleport back to your tent, because ow
<Xandhil> even with the resistance I feel a little singed @_@
* Justen nods
<Justen> I thought about asking for some extra... but I managed
<Justen> am I the ass hero this time? ^-^
<Xandhil> I think so ^-^
* Justen grins
* Justen will at least try to run a comb through his sweaty, tangled hair before lying down again
<Xandhil> so much for our baths ;p
<Justen> tomorrow they're gonna think we had a fever, or something
<Xandhil> yeah....
<Justen> still worth it
<Justen> we can wash off in the stream tomorrow ;)
* Xandhil takes the comb and stares at it despondenetly befome trying to wrk through the tangles oin his hair from flying and sweaty sex...
<Justen> aww... you want me to try and help?
* Justen knows that look
<Xandhil> no -_-
<Justen> okay
<Xandhil> thanks
* Justen gives you a kiss, then, and will lie down in his bedroll to watch you
* Justen is probably asleep in under 2 minutes though ;)
* Xandhil needs much longer to get his hair sorted ;_;
* Xandhil will snuggle up and pass out once that's all sorted though
* Justen probably *should
* have taken longer, but...
* Justen sleepily snuggles with you, all warm and cosy
