[Lisa] Think I am all fixed now

[Kaz] sorry I'm late

[BOB] no worries

[BOB] I just sent you an email Kaz

[BOB] Lisa helped out with a map of the Small Kingdoms

[Kaz] cool

[BOB] just a very rough horrible drawing

[BOB] do not blame her

[Kaz] lol

[Kaz] I won't blame her that you think it's horrible :D

[BOB] but she was bugging me for something so you would know where you actually are

[Kaz] It's not HER fault you're mean!

[BOB] nope,

[BOB] so at least the two fo you will know

[BOB] and maybe Guy if you choose to share with him

[Lisa] I labeled the areas That is all

[Lisa] I think it looks like a butterfly

[Lisa] Do not think it is bad at all

[BOB] well in any case

[BOB] it will do for now until my nice one gets done

[BOB] what are the prospects for Guy tonight?

[BOB] and Lisa could you please send Kaz a private message with the phone?

[Kaz] He's closing

[BOB] darn, I thought he was an nice open friendly guy, sucks he is closing off now

[Kaz] lol

[Kaz] I'd be closing off too, if I wasn't going to get home from work until 2 am.

[BOB] did you check your email Kaz?

[Lisa] ouch!

[Kaz] yes, I'm looking at it now

[BOB] ok,

[Kaz] Okay, I can't open the map

[Kaz] my reader says it's damaged and can't be repaired

[BOB] I am not damaged, I am just special

[BOB] but ok

[Kaz] Yeah, you tell yourself that!


[Lisa] just sent you my version

[BOB] there you go posted up on the site now

[BOB] chuckles

[BOB] I bet her version has all the secret hiding places already marked

[Kaz] lol

[BOB] well the version she sent you has more than just numbers

[Lisa] wish I knew where all the secret hiding places are

[BOB] which is what I just posted up on the site,

[BOB] so hers is better


[Lisa] did you need it in a different format Bob? I can send you a jpeg

[BOB] but that map is the previous one I had commissioned

[BOB] and no, thank you Lisa but I could do it just did not yet

[BOB] have you ever seen that map? either of you?

[Kaz] No, and it's a GORGEOUS map!

[BOB] thanks, I picked out the artist myself ;)

[Kaz] lol

[Kaz] Ooh, my household was just picked by Royal Caribbean to win a blah blah blah blah.

[BOB] grins

[Kaz] Damned stupid B.S. phone calls.

[BOB] Branwyn XP award: 1000. Next level in 18940.

[Kaz] Oh, and according to my email, I've won the lotteries in Great Britain and Australia, plus a widow in 'insert random middle-european country here' wants to send me money.

[Kaz] I'm rich... RICH, I tell you!!

[Lisa] lol

[BOB] did you have any flashes of inspiration over the week Kaz?

[Kaz] Sure did!

[Kaz] But they're all connected to my new library programs. Sorry.

[BOB] that is cool though

[BOB] so Branwyn is coming back from the forest with a vial from Acien

[Lisa] we left him already?

[BOB] Kristelle is holed up at the shed of the farm house

[Kaz] Nah, I figure Kristelle is probably going to die, and Foriso possibly, too.

[BOB] you can be there if you want

[Kaz] Kristelle was heading back to the estate, actually

[BOB] was thinking you wanted to move things along

[Lisa] don't get to ask him at least which direction we should walk in?

[BOB] ahh she wants to spread

[Kaz] she was bringing the body and was going to make sure it got burned.

[BOB] ok

[BOB] and yes you can talk to him if you wish

[Kaz] Not sure how she's spreading it if she doesn't come into contact with anything.

[BOB] but he does not keep track of human settlements

[Lisa] will he tell me anything? no point if he won't I guess

[BOB] so he only vaguely knows that there are hamlets and such scattered around between the forest and the keep

[Lisa] okay

[BOB] over the two hour walk you can see the lights from several farms

[BOB] and three knots of houses

[Lisa] guess we should just start stopping at them

[Lisa] what do you think?

[BOB] I will give Branwyn a wisdom check

[BOB] based on that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: WIS check: (d20) [1d20=1] 1 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 13!!

[BOB] and her streak of ones is intact ;)

[BOB] but this helps you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] hope it holds for Lords

[BOB] the shrine you helped cleanse during the Green Acres story is about an hour to the East from here

[BOB] that was over a year ago, there should be a new priest there by now

[BOB] you can hope this one does not experiment with Undead

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (you are wonderful, thank you)

[BOB] I knew that everyone had forgotten that encounter grins

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (was thinking of it still being empty)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (time slips by)

[BOB] smile

[BOB] kaz what do you think of that Small Kingdoms map by the way?

[BOB] Branwyn moved 102'03".

[BOB] Indigo moved 118'00".

[BOB] Scarlet moved 138'00".

[BOB] Kristelle moved 46'00".

[BOB] Miranda moved 50'03".

[Kaz] which map?

[BOB] the one that Lisa sent you

[Kaz] I couldn't open it

[Kaz] the reader said it was damaged and couldn't be fixed, so I can't see it.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (mine either? that is strange, I emailed it to myself from work and opened it. I'm sorry)

[Kaz] hang on

[Kaz] Lisa, you sent it to me as well?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] yes

[Kaz] sorry, I have to re-check mail then

[BOB] Time of Day: 07:00 PM. Day 1 Trall, Ze {Mid Summer} 1st, 338 SKR.

[BOB] Branwyn moved 13'10".

[BOB] Priest of Aclim moved 19'00".

[BOB] as Branwyn and Indigo come up to the shrine it is dark but you can see a candle lit inside

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Miranda should be with us should't she? we took her to the forest so she wouldn't get plagued by Kristelle)

[Kaz] same thing, it says is damaged

[BOB] Miranda moved 122'09".

[Kaz] Yes, Miranda is there, too

[BOB] there you go

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that sucks!)

[BOB] Lisa can you whip out a quick jpg for her?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (okay - will be a minute or two - have to run to my laptop)

[BOB] ok

[BOB] brb restroom break

[BOB] I am away from the keyboard.

BiBo!!! has joined the game on Fri Oct 29 19:40:40 EDT 2010

BiBo!!! is receiving the map Jistille Estate Keep...

[Kaz] Heya Marco

BiBo!!! has received the map Jistille Estate Keep.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (and done)

[BOB] I am back at the keyboard.

[BOB] Welcome Marco

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Hi Marco :)

[BOB] now you have scarlet there with at the Shrine also

[Kaz] brb

[BiBo!!!] man... it sure takes a while to be all functional in this klooge doesnt it. I miss my chat box docked at the bottom...

[BiBo!!!] whats this shrine then?

[BiBo!!!] I only see a castle

[Kaz] back

[BOB] nods did not put you on a new map for this encounter

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (it was a small temple we had run into earlier - Bob just didn't switch maps)

[BOB] it is a Kayugan temple they encountered

[BOB] shrine

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (used to have some crazy undead loving priest there but he got eaten)

[BOB] Miranda remembers the place well grins

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (isn't that where we found only his arm?)

[Kaz] *shudder*

[Kaz] yep

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (and we all nearly got killed by ghouls)

[BOB] I am sorry you will have to be more specific, which time you all nearly got killed?

[BiBo!!!] this isnt the pile of skulls is it?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no - this is close to home)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (has a cute ghoul infested graveyard in the back - or least it used to)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I am ignoring Bob)

[BOB] that was over a year ago

[BOB] so you arrive tonight

[BOB] there is a single candle burning in the shrine, otherwise it is dark

[BOB] and......

[BOB] action!

Branwyn (Lisa) walks up to the door and knocks loudly

[BiBo!!!] ((why are we here by the way?))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (find a healer)

[BiBo!!!] ((ah... so people actually live here despite the ghouls. I assumed it was abandoned))

[Kaz] I am back at the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we are hoping they have installed a new priest)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((no, it's got a new priest, now. Ghouls are - hopefully - gone))

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] the door opens

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] a tall bearded man in dark robes looks out at you

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] blinking

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] then smiles,

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] welcome welcome

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] come in

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] you need shelter?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you. We are not in need of shelter, but we would like to come in. Are you the new priest?

BiBo!!! is now controlling Scarlet

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] looks at his hands, turning them over, No I feel quite like an old priest

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] come in come

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] holds open the door and gestures for you to enter

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] (there are now benches where there were none before)

Branwyn (Lisa) steps into the shrine and motions for others to follow

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] (the two cabinets are there but closed)

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] (the room can hold about 10 people or so)

Miranda (Kaz) looks around with interest.

[Miranda (Kaz)] It looks more welcoming.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] Oh? you have come before?

[Miranda (Kaz)] We were here some time past.

[Miranda (Kaz)] It was not a good time.

Miranda (Kaz) shudders a bit.

[BiBo!!!] I am back at the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Are you familiar with the priest that used to worship here?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] which one?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] :: glances about and doesnt say much, walking over near the candle for now as she looks for anything out of the ordinary ::

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] the previous Priest, Brother Jerome, he was eaten by wolves

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am not sure of his name. By wolves, was he?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] hmmmm

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] the one before that was Sister Magdaline, she was struck by lightning, that would be 8 months ago

[Miranda (Kaz)] It was before that.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] this shrine has some problems

[Miranda (Kaz)] Yes, it does.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] With that sort of history, are you not worried for your own safety?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] not unusual in this area, but it is more troubling than most

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] ahh of course I am aware of the problems, but I would not worry overly much about them

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] my faith in Aclim is strong and he only sends his favorites out to dangerous places

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] it is only in such a place we can test our mettle

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles thinking how much Imari would have liked this priest

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is nice of you to welcome us considering the plague that seems to br spreading in this area. We have just come back from a trip and others have not been so welcoming

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] This Shrine has been here for at least 200 years,

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] it has moved from that side of the graveyard to this one

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] over there, points to a wall, there was a Shrine to Kiputytto, and they razed this one to the ground

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] :: idly flicks at the tiny flame of the candle, causing it to dance about her finger rather disturbingly, but not actually burning her as she listens to the exchange::

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] but 80 years ago we rebuilt this one after Hers melted

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] then he cocks his head at you, the Plague you say?

Branwyn (Lisa) nods politely, hoping that Miranda has the least clue what he is talking about

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I have been in a meditation trance fro the last day

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes, a plague. It has hit the Jistelle Keep and neighboring farms apparently

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] tell me has anyone

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] oh

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] that is bad

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] and you ahve been there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No. Not inside the Keep. We do not have it, I assure you

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] nods gravely, that is what all wish to say, it could not be me

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] it is ok

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I can absolve you

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Miranda helplessly

[Miranda (Kaz)] We do not need to be absolved for anything.

[Miranda (Kaz)] We are here for help regarding healing for a different problem. Know you anything of swamp afflictions?

[Miranda (Kaz)] A friend of ours was afflicted after finding leeches on him.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] yes, I do know some healing spells,

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] oh

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] you mean the wasting disease

[Miranda (Kaz)] I believe it is a wasting disease. He has gotten a bit weaker. Can you help?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((I thought the tree guy gave us a cure for that))

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] he is slowing growing weaker? his stamina is gone?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((no, he gve us something that slows it down))

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((okies))]

[Miranda (Kaz)] Slowly growing weaker, yes.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I am sorry no, I can not help you with that, my skills are not up to that task, you should look for the Brothers, they could help

[Miranda (Kaz)] The Brothers?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Please explain, I do not know what you mean.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] (Branwyn or Kristelle want to make a knowledge check)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: KNO check: (d20) [1d20=4] 4 [MODIFIED (+1+1)] - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 18!!

[Miranda (Kaz)] Miranda: KNO check: (d20) [1d20=18] 18 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 18!!

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((sorry, it takes me forever to find anything))

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] not miranda sorry

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] forgot Kristelle is not here

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] There is also a Paladin Order dedicated to the destruction of the Vampire Lords of the Mist. The Order of Brotherhood stands to fight the Vampire Lords and to protect the Royal Family of Drillian. The Brothers each are sworn to another brother and pledge to protect each other and to not let his or her brother to fall and become an undead - death by a Brother's hand is preferred. Their blazon is a long sword held vertical on a gray field clasped by two hands each entering from opposite lower corners to demonstrate the bonds of brother hood and dependence on each other, the grey stands for The Mist where most of the battles the Brotherhood engages in as they hunt the Vampire Lords

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] The Brothers would be able to heal him

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I fear thay can not cure the Plague,

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] the Grey Death is not a natural disease, no one knows how to stop it

[Miranda (Kaz)] Do you mean that someone created it?

[Miranda (Kaz)] How awful.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ::mutters:: Probably some demon we have to kill...

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] This would be the fourth time it has happened, there are stories of it happening a thousand years ago in Roman times

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do the Brothers help strangers? I am not sure they would be a kind as you have been.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] it has been hundreds of years that anyone has contracted the Grey Death

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I ams ure they will be

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] but I will come with you if you need it,

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] it is my duty to help adventurers in need

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Are they close by?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] shrugs, I do not know

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] their order is small

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] they number less than a hundred even in the best of times

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If you do not know where they are, then how should we find them?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I urge you to pray

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] and seek enlightenment

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is not my strong suit

[Miranda (Kaz)] But it is mine, Branwyn.

Miranda (Kaz) smiles gently.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am glad for that

[Priest of Aclim (BOB) (to BiBo!!! only)] by the way that previous Goddess he mentioned Kiputytto, is part of the Suomi religion, from Blackwater

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] I would come with you to help if you wish

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] do you want to visit the Jistelle Estate tonight?

[Miranda (Kaz)] I believe any help would be welcome, although I am hesitent to part you from your followers.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] You are in need, that makes you my flock, I am here to serve you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you. We would appreciate your company.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Miranda, should we bring Ancien's draught to Foriso before we leave?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Indeed. Thank you.

[Miranda (Kaz)] I believe we should. We can leave it outside the gates.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] /bob so... this is an enemy religion to me?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] that would be DM marco, and yes

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] says youre bob.... lame

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Good idea. I don't want Foriso getting any weaker than he already has become.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We can yell up to that ridiculous guard to fetch it for him.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Hopefully there will be a new guard. One with the capacity to think.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs, "I hope so"

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] :: gazes at the candle and wonders what it was like to burn the previous incarnation of this shrine down some 80 years ago. a smile comes to her lips as she pictures it::

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] (actually the other shrine burned/melted 80+ years ago, this one was built to replace it on this side of the graveyard)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You're looking happy Scarlet. Glad to be going to the Brotherhood?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ::shrugs:: A hundred strong men who like playing with their swords, could be fun

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] chuklces

Miranda (Kaz) blushes and shakes her head ruefully.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Sounds like they have the same types of goals as your Right Hand does.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I just hope they will help us.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ::laughs out loud::

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] chokes

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] I assure you my right hand has no such goals.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (oh God! meant the undead - jeez)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((LMAO!!))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (minds out of gutter pleeze)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] (( oh come on, totally walked into that one))

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Oh Lisa, this is US you're telling!!!))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yes I did )

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((wait until I tell Guy about that... you'll never hear the end of it. ))

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((you are just lucky there are no monkeys about))

[BOB] Ok, so you are getting out of the shrine

[BOB] you walk back to the Keep

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((ROFL Marco! With big bananas))

[BOB] Time of Day: 09:15 PM. Day 1 Trall, Ze {Mid Summer} 1st, 338 SKR.

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((By the by, Kristelle is actually staying at the farm, cutting wood to make a pyre for the dead guy and whatever other dead show up))

[BOB] as you approach the keep you can see there are torches lit on the battlements

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (arrows shot at her now and again?)

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] **coughs** who goes there **goughs**

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] GAG

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] groans

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] Stay away

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] the plague is here

[Miranda (Kaz)] Yes, we know. We have come to leave something for one of the Dragonslayers, who is in your walls.

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] what is it?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Please tell Medoro or Foriso, immediately if possible.

[Miranda (Kaz)] It is for the Dragonslayer, Foriso.

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] how do I know you are not trying to poison us?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] *coughs*

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] you are already dying, whats the point?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] is this a trick

[Miranda (Kaz)] If you get Medoro, he will vouch for us.

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] his head bobs up and down for a bit as he thinks

[BOB] Medoro moved 33'09".

[Medoro (BOB)] who is there?

[Miranda (Kaz)] It is Miranda of the Dragonslayers.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Did you speak with Foriso?

[Medoro (BOB)] yes

[Medoro (BOB)] he is resting

[Miranda (Kaz)] Has he told you of the wasting sickness from the leeches?

[Medoro (BOB)] yes,

[Miranda (Kaz)] We have a potion for him, from (insert tree name here). It won't cure the wasting sickness, but it will slow the progress of it considerably while we look for help.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Branwyn will leave it just outside the gate and we will move away now.

[Medoro (BOB)] very well

[Miranda (Kaz)] Thank you, Medoro.

Branwyn (Lisa) runs up and places draught outside gate and runs quickly back again

[Medoro (BOB)] I will give this to him

[Medoro (BOB)] where are you going now?

[Miranda (Kaz)] I know you have so many other worries. Thank you.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] just this much?

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] holds up the vial

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] looking at Branwyn

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] this is going to help him?

[Miranda (Kaz)] It is a very powerful draught. We were told it will slow the wasting sickness.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] maybe I should try it first

[Miranda (Kaz)] It isn't going to cure it, it's not THAT powerful.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It will do nothing for plague I am afraid so it can only help Foriso

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] makes a face, Gnomes do not get the plague

[Miranda (Kaz)] And it cannot help him if he takes sick with plague. It only helps that one disease.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] but if it makes my nose grow longer

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] that might be worth it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Practu! This draught will do nothing for your nose

[Miranda (Kaz)] If you waste it and Foriso dies because he did not recieve that draught, you will wish you contracted the plague and died.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] they say that walking Elm can do magical things

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] (( hes a gnome?))

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] (yes, the Dragonslayers Company rescued him previously)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes he can and you would not like it if we told him that you took it instead of Foriso

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] so you want me to go find Foriso and tell him to drink this?

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] Oh no worries, you can tell him that Foriso took it

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] **cough** - **cough** - **hack**

[Miranda (Kaz)] Practumnarishkill, please give that draught to Foriso. Do not drink any. Do not give it to anyone else. Please tell Foriso it is for his wasting disease.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It would be my please to send Ancien to crush you like a twig if you do not give it to Foriso

[Medoro (BOB)] practumnarishkil do not waste our time please

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] heh snap me like a twig huh?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Perhaps if Indigo appeals to him?))

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] you should see your face

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] holds up a hand

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] ok no worries

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] I will get Foriso to drink this one way or another

[Miranda (Kaz)] Perhaps this is a funny game to you, Practumnarishkill, but it is not to us.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Thank you.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Simply tell him what it is and that it is from Ancien, and what it is for. He will drink it.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] calls up to Medoro, you have any peppers? I can get him to eat a handful, he will drink anything we put in front of him then

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] waves at the group

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] thanks!

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] this will be fun!

Miranda (Kaz) sighs.

[Practumnarishkill (BOB)] takes the potion bottle and goes back inside the keep

[BOB] Practumnarishkill moved 36'03".

[BOB] (come on you know Guy would be laughing at this)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((He'd be cracking up, absolutely!))

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] Well I must admit that you have a wide variety of aquaintances

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] so where do we go now?

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] brb

[BOB] I am away from the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Shoulr we wait until morning to start so Miranda and our new friend here can pray about which way to go? Or should we just be on our way?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] mists make divinations all wonky dont they?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Praying may be good.

[BOB] I am back at the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (you know if they do this we will probably owe the vampire killers a favor - fun stuff)

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] the Mist prevents Divination

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] so camping near Kristelle? then leaving in teh morning?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We are not camping near Kristelle, thank you.

[Priest of Aclim (BOB)] not goign to tell her anything?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (can we yell out to her without getting close enough to catch it?)

[BOB] sure you can yell back and forth easily enough

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (how long do we have to get back before she has to make a check?)

[BOB] it is a four day thing

[BOB] at the end of day two make a check

[BOB] you start to recover or you start to die

[BOB] she caught it at about 4 PM

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so we have time, good)

[BOB] so the plan is?

Branwyn (Lisa) sees Kristelle out chopping wood instead of resting and sighs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Kristelle!! We are going for help for Foriso

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will be back as soon as we can. Please try to rest yourself

[Miranda (Kaz)] Just cutting enough for a pyre or two. Don't worry, I'll take it easy.

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((aaaaaannnndddd..... pretend Kristelle said that.))

[BOB] it is always considerate to cut teh wood for your own funeral Pyre

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((that's what she's doing... duh :D ))

[BOB] so sleeping out doors tonight

[BOB] clicking off the night till morning? or?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Miranda is doing some hefty praying before bed))

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] clickity split

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Both for finding the brothers AND for helping the plague victims))

[BOB] ok

Lisa is now controlling Indigo

Lisa is no longer controlling Indigo

Lisa is now controlling Indigo

[BOB] full spells again

[Branwyn (Lisa)] have to log out

[BOB] ok

[Branwyn (Lisa)] cannot unlock

[Branwyn (Lisa)] says cannot control Branwyn since it is locked by Lisa??

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] cant edit my sheet either

[BOB] sorry

[BOB] it is because you are controlling Marco

Lisa has left the game on Fri Oct 29 21:07:44 EDT 2010

[BOB] try to uncontrol it first

[BOB] then see what happens

Lisa has joined the game on Fri Oct 29 21:08:08 EDT 2010

Lisa is receiving the map Jistille Estate Keep...

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] um... isnt that stupid though? whats the point of controlling?

[BOB] there is a known bug in the Control function, supposed to be fixed next version

Lisa has received the map Jistille Estate Keep.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] still no go. says cannot lock sheet for editing null

[BOB] only way to break the lock is to log otu then back in

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] wait, now it works

[BOB] is what Lisa just did

[BOB] oh good

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] just tried again ::)

[BOB] I tried and it said it was locked

[BOB] so that means that one of the two things fixed it

[BOB] I think it is the control and uncontrol

[BOB] in any case

[BOB] it is morning

[BOB] full spells

[Branwyn (Lisa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Branwyn modified: Spells - CHANGED: Read Magic -- # Memorized: 0 (1), CHANGED: Magic Missile -- # Memorized: +1 (+0), CHANGED: Sleep -- # Memorized: +1 (+0), CHANGED: Unseen Servant -- # Memorized: 0 (1), CHANGED: Knock -- # Memorized: +2 (+1), CHANGED: Whip o' Pain -- # Memorized: +2 (+1),

[BOB] and then off to search for the brothers

[Branwyn (Lisa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Branwyn modified: Magical Abilities - DELETED: null, null, null. CHANGED: 3rd Level -- Maximum: 2 (1),

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Scarlet modified: Spells - CHANGED: Burning Hands -- # Memorized: 2 (+1),

[BOB] so ideas?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Any revelations over night Miranda?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Well... Miranda prayed to her Goddess - a Goddess of HEALING - for guidance on finding the Brothers to help Foriso, as well as helping the plague victims))

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((If the goddess of healing doesn't want to help the sick, then I guess prayers were in vain.))

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at priest, "I'm sorry. We were so worried for our friends that we did not get your name. I am Branwyn."

[BOB] no Divinations in the Mist,

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] I am Father Ilgen

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((So, basically, her goddess is not actually strong enough to contact her in a dream or anything like that. Okay.))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Father, did your prayers lead you to any clues as to where we should go?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((she's not casting divination spells.))

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] no I have not had any inspirations under this *waves his hand in the air*, and I find that I actually miss the stars

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] perhaps you folk are used to this, but where I am from near Dryads Lair there are stars adn lights in the sky

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] not this grey doom

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] but we must perservere must'nt we

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well, we don't have time to wander around aimlessly

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] (dreams are divination, sorry)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe Medoro has heard of this Brotherhood?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] I am sure he has

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] but where they are is another sotry

Branwyn (Lisa) walks towards gate again and calls out for Medoro

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] perhaps we should journey to the south? is that not where this Mist is thicker? if they fight the creatures of the Mist they must be near there

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] **cough** croaks, yes

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] Medoro is sleeping

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] *coughs**

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh nevermind then. Unless you know where to find a Brotherhood of Vampire Slayers.

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] the Brothers?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] *hack*

Branwyn (Lisa) is trying not to sound as irritated as she feels

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes, the Brothers. You know of them?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] he leans on the stone weary

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] of course I know of them

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] *cough*

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] they can't cure the plague

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you know where they are?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] but they can catch it

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] I am sure there are some traveling

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But they could help Foriso

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] dark times like these the Queen woudl send them out

[Branwyn (Lisa)] To the South?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] we can not let them in here! *cough* No one can enter

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] wracking cough

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] mutters god I want to sleep

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Has Foriso caught the plague? If not, perhaps he can come out to them

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We have to try

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] two more days we will be clear

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] if not sane

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((are we aware if powerful priests have successfully cured this plague before or not?))

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] shakes his head

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sorry

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] (no by all accounts there is no cure)

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] (but this is the first time it has happened in over 200 years so most humans would be dead by now, wry grin)

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] deep sigh,

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] if you find the Brothers

[Miranda (Kaz)] It will probably take us two days to find them. In any case, they probably wouldn't want to enter until you are declared clear.

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] bring them

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] may the gods help you

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] **coughs** if there are any left

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ::thinks for a while:: You know... I think we are barking up the wrong trees. I would imagine that the natives of a keep could probably afford a powerful priest to show up and cure the disease if such magics could work, and if there was a nonmagical remedy, I imagine it would have been known about by now. Maybe we are treating this the wrong way. Maybe instead of treating it as infection, we should treat it as an attack.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Maybe someone or something is causing all this and if we take it out, it will stop the attack

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] hmmm you have a point young lady

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] but where would they be?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] and how could we stop it now?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] well, I dont know that just yet, but there must be some clue that we are overlooking

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] and that cursed Yu**cough* he ran away

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] disapeared

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] who knows wehre

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ::ponders:: are you sure he ran away?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] What if he went in search of the cause of this plague?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] Medoro said he disapeared from the middle of the hall when he heard the news

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] **gough**

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] Hah*gough gough gough*

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He probably went to his castle

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Well, how far is his castle?

[Generic Guard #6 (BOB)] Yullotte would not go for help and bring them back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It takes an airship to get there

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] dont suppose you have a spare one of those around

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Is there no other way to contact him?

[Miranda (Kaz)] I wonder... were it anyone else, I might say that he has gone in search of help. But he seemed rather self-absorbed and cowardly to me.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] His safety would be his only concern

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Well, if he is as powerful a wizard as it seems, it may be a facade to avoid trouble from challengers. powerful wizards like to test their abilities against other wizards sometimes.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] If he is capable of arranging a floating castle, he likely isnt so afraid of things as he lets on

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He is obsessed with controlling demons. And he may well have done so

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] and again scared people dont deal with demons.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] He may not care about others, but if he thinks that his own life is at risk, I imagine he would attempt to find a way to stop it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I don't think he is scared. Just self-serving

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] which is perfectly self serving

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] if others benefit from his attempt, it is of no consequence to him

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He is friends with Lord Mosskin. You may have a point.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Ormaybe he let looe a demon that caused this whole mess. But we still have no direction to follow

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Unless we can find some pattern to the plague, I think he is likely our best lead

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] So if he is friends with Lord Mosskin, lets talk to him

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] The paladins wont be any help to us unless this is caused by vampires

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] which, while possible, is doubtful

[Miranda (Kaz)] Lord Mosskin is in the Keep, possibly ill with plague. AND he has just lost his wife.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But they could help Foriso. Tis hard when there are so many to try to save.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Our purpose in seeking the paladins is to cure Foriso.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Well, even if they cure his swamp sickness, it is useless if he dies of the plague

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] and the plague is probably going to kill him first, as well as a lot of other people, so I think it should take the priority

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (does Foriso have to re-roll for plague or is he clear from first roll?)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((whether he has it now or not, he could carry it, so he is stuck inside for now))

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] If there is one place I can think to find a bunch of soldiers it would be a tavern

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ...

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] huh?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] (one roll per plague, he is safe, Kristelle has it, the rest are not touched yet so no clue)

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] you said you were looking for Paladins, brothers

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] they are warriors right?

[Miranda (Kaz)] That is a good point, Father Ilgen

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] every solider I have ever known has ended up in a bar

[Miranda (Kaz)] Warriors do tend to gather in taverns.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] is there a town near by with a tavern?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well... there is that tavern where we first met as Dragonslayers

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((that's for us not to know, and for you to tell us.))

[BOB] (Marco would not know but do you too... thank you LIsa)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] I still think this wizard knows something. If he didnt, he would know there was no point in escaping the quarrantine.

[BOB] (50 XP if you remember the name)

[BOB] Ok,

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no clue)

[BOB] Old Man Millers tavern,

[BOB] about 8 hours west of here

[BOB] outside of the Jistelle Estate's area

[Miranda (Kaz)] damn it

[Miranda (Kaz)] I was looking for it. No fair telling.

[BOB] grins

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] looking it up is cheating :-P

[BOB] now that you have it you can go search

[BOB] and I will not tell you the other bit of trivia you will want to know

[Miranda (Kaz)] and it was NOT Old Man Millers Tavern

[Miranda (Kaz)] it was Old Millers Tavern

[Miranda (Kaz)] RUN by old man Miller

[Miranda (Kaz)] :P

[BOB] grins

[BOB] lol

[BOB] and so

[BOB] rather than have you encounter Dragonflys and Giant Ants and Bullywugs

[BOB] like you did the previous time you went there

[BOB] will just click you over to there if that is ok with everyone

[Miranda (Kaz)] okie dokies

[BOB] Lisa? Marco?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] of course

[BOB] ok

[Branwyn (Lisa)] we have to

[BOB] Time of Day: 04:00 PM. Day 2 Trall ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 2nd, 338 SKR.

[BOB] so you reach the small town along the caravan path

[BOB] the trail to the south heads towards the center of Drillian

[BOB] to the North it leads out of the Mist and towards Loosend

[BOB] there is a decent sized Tavern here along with a blacksmith

[BOB] both are stone buildings and look mostly repaired

[BOB] there are several places in town with walls still showing damage from burns

[BOB] and there are stumps of trees where there was a small grove that the Dragonslayers Company had their command tents

[BOB] ready?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] for what?

[BOB] did any of you find that bit of knowledge you learned last time you were here?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] course not, wasnt here before

[BOB] chuckles, Marco there is a search function on the website

[BOB] just for that reason

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Anything to do with Old Man Miller being gone, and the Dragonslayers basically claiming the place as salvage?))

[BOB] no, prior to that but good point also

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Can't type very well for some reason - keyboard fading in and out)

[BOB] maybe it has the Plague?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (keep turning it over and shaking it andthen it works for a bit)

[BOB] but moving forward

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Ummm... ))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so if I go silent that's why)

[BOB] she died of the plauge

[BOB] plague

[BOB] walking up to the tavern

[BOB] it is later in the afternoon

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] so you have been here before?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] looking at Scarlet

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] is that your handiwork?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] pointing at the trees

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Dont think so, everything is too in tact for my handiwork

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] grunts

[Miranda (Kaz)] No, there was a dragon. A big...

[Miranda (Kaz)] Dragon.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] *looks around*

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] I do hope it is gone now?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Yes, if they're rebuilding.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] so

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] let us at least quench our thirst

[Miranda (Kaz)] We found undead in the cellar, when we were escaping.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] and see ....

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] oh

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] really? what sort of undead?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] looking at Indigo and Scarlett

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] undead?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] Dragons?

[Miranda (Kaz)] No. Ghouls? They're gone, now.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] :: shrugs :: dont ask me, Ive never been here

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] (zombies actually)

[Indigo (Lisa)] I've never been here either

[Indigo (Lisa)] (branwyn was desperately trying to type that - arghh)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((thank you. Zombies.))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is perhaps good that Foriso is not with us with his EAR sword

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] (Ear is gone remember)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (then no worries :) )

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] So let us see what is here for us to drink

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] opens up the door to the tavern

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] Hello there!

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] Welcome!

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] come on in

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] not many travelers on the roads these days, the Plague is keeping them inside I fear

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] what can I do for you?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] dusts off a large table

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] what can I get you folks?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((I thought Old Man Miller was dead, Bob))

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] (yes)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] he got better

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (old man zombie miller?)

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] (if you have a way to tell if this is him or not)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((I can Detect Evil, for starters))

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] maybe he is like kennny

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] (you can tell he is not a zombie obviously)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] dies over and over

Branwyn (Lisa) looks around the group, "Ale for all of us?"

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] very good

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] and he goes off behind the bar

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (oh no! you killed Kenny!)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((whip out some garlic and a wooden stake))

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((YOU BASTARDS!))

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] rattling and rubbing some tankards

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (LOL)

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] filling them from a keg

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] carries the five of them back

Branwyn (Lisa) looks around the tavern for other patrons

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] that will be three silver if you please

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] the room is empty execept for you

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] (( is this area still within the mists? aka detect evil wont work?)

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] exactly :)

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] stands waiting to be paid

Indigo (Lisa) lays out 3 silver pieces from what they had gotten from the chests and had not divvied up yet

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((we had claimed salvage rights because there was no landlord. But I can't find where we said what happened to him))

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((well, I have no reason to suspect him as I dont know hes supposed to be dead, so on with my merry drinking))

Miranda (Kaz) looks at her mug of aile but doesn't touch it.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] So why are you folks out traveling?

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Good question. Not sure myself.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] it is good to have customers again, it has been a lonely week

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] 6 or 8 days that travel has been very quiet

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sorry for that.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We are actually looking for some people and it would have been nice if they had stopped here recently.

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] At least why we are traveling HERE anyway. You wouldnt know about the Brothers would you?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] the Brotherhood?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] really? you are looking for them?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] we have a pair that stops by regularly here

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] How regularly?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] oh every three or four days,

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] so, when would you be expecting them next?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I had thought they might be by by now

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] like I said not many people around at all

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] but Jill across the way there

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] she is the best blacksmith around

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] can sharpen anything they say

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] so they will be by to visit her

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] Guess we will ask her then. Thank you for the information.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] anytime

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] sit and shake the dust off

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You haven't happened to see Yulotte lurking around have you?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] who?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yulotte. He's a mage that visits the Jistelle Estates now and again.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If you met him you would remember him I'm sure

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] Oh no have no clue who he is

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I have never been near the Jistelle Estates

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] (( I have to get going, later guys))

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] (have a great day Marco)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Bye!)

[Scarlet (BiBo!!!)] ((you too))

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Night M))

BiBo!!! has left the game on Fri Oct 29 22:18:17 EDT 2010

Branwyn (Lisa) takes a drink of her ale. We should probably finish these quickly and then go question this blacksmith.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I can go get her for you if you want

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That would be lovely.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] he nods and goes to the door

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Before you go, have you also seen Captain Lukincha lately?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] looks back? who?

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((I was JUST about to ask that!! LOL))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (scanning chat logs! lol)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Captain Lukincha

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you know her?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I am sorry I do not know who you are talking about

Miranda (Kaz) narrows her eyes and glances at Branwyn.

Branwyn (Lisa) looks back at Miranda with a worried look

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] let me go get her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No matter. We have many friends to find

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] and he leaves

[Miranda (Kaz)] Perhaps we should be elsewhere when he comes back in.

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((is there a back entrance?))

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((are there windows?))

[BOB] sure

[BOB] there is the bar

[BOB] there is teh back room where you know there is a cellar underneath

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Indigo, be ready for anything. This man is not who he says he is.

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((give us a minute Bob, I need to look over my spells again))

[BOB] no hurries

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Should we follow him outside? At least we would not be stuck in this room)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((Lisa, I have Hold Person, which will hold up to 4 humanoids for ten rounds))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that is great!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (he doesn't seem bad - just not the right guy)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (maybe he's a long lost cousin)

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((perhaps))

[Miranda (Kaz)] Perhaps Branwyn can ask him when he returns, and Miranda can have the spell ready to be cast, like just needing the last word))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so that was a no to windows?)

[BOB] sorry yes

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (okay)

[BOB] no windows

[BOB] some places that are boarded up, maybe wooden shutters

[BOB] but no glass anywhere even your tankards are wooden

[Miranda (Kaz)] Indigo, stand in the shadows by the door and see who he is returning with

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((can I hold a spell at the end of casting, Bob?))

[BOB] yes but can not talk or do anything,

[Indigo (Lisa)] Okay Miranda

Indigo (Lisa) walks over by the door and waits

[Miranda (Kaz)] I'm going to keep a spell of holding ready, just in case. Branwyn, when he comes in, if he doesn't bring more than expected, ask him who he is to the original landlord.

[Miranda (Kaz)] If he does bring more than expected, I'll hold as many as I can.

Miranda (Kaz) sighs.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It will be fine

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will take care of anything that happens

Miranda (Kaz) starts casting, holding the last word of the spell.

[BOB] Indigo hears voices approaching

Indigo (Lisa) motions to Miranda and Branwyn that they are coming

Branwyn (Lisa) takes another swig of ale and waits

[Paladin (BOB)] So how do you know these are bandits?

[Paladin (BOB)] HEY

[Paladin (BOB)] striding into the room

[Paladin (BOB)] looks over at Indigo

[Paladin (BOB)] YOU THERE!

[Paladin (BOB)] what do you mean to be hiding there

Miranda (Kaz) raises her eyebrow at Branwyn

[Indigo (Lisa)] I am not hiding

[Paladin (BOB)] takes a steptwoards Indigo

[Paladin (BOB)] frowns,

[Indigo (Lisa)] I do not hide from any one

[Paladin (BOB)] oh no I am not hiding I am just standing here behind the door

[Paladin (BOB)] scowls

[Paladin (BOB)] you get over there with your friends

[Paladin (BOB)] points

[Indigo (Lisa)] And what if I don't? Who are you anyway?

[Paladin (BOB)] Look little man

Indigo (Lisa) bristles angrily

[Paladin (BOB)] you and your friends might think they can go where they want and take what they want

[Paladin (BOB)] but while I am serving our Queen you will not do so

Miranda (Kaz) looks meaningfully at Branwyn

[Paladin (BOB)] no

[Paladin (BOB)] GO

[Paladin (BOB)] SIT

[Indigo (Lisa)] What are you talking about?

[Paladin (BOB)] takes one more step

Indigo (Lisa) walks over to Branwyn and Miranda

[Paladin (BOB)] looks over his shoulder, calling out

[Paladin (BOB)] STAY there, I am not sure

[Paladin (BOB)] then looking back at your group

[Paladin (BOB)] so

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Sir, we do not know you. What do you think we have taken?

[Paladin (BOB)] who are you

[Paladin (BOB)] I do not know if you have taken anything

[Paladin (BOB)] but when a tavern keeper comes to get me about a group of suspected bandits I listen

[Paladin (BOB)] now tell me

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am Branwyn of Roppenmere and the man you were barking orders at was Indigo

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We are no bandits

[Paladin (BOB)] he reaches to his belt and pulls out a wand

[Paladin (BOB)] he grips one end

[Paladin (BOB)] points it towards Branwyn

[Paladin (BOB)] take it

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at wand

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why would you give me this?

[Paladin (BOB)] to test you

Branwyn (Lisa) slowly reaches out her hand to take it

[Paladin (BOB)] Branwyn feels a tingle as she grasps the wand

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((he hasn't said who HE is))

[Paladin (BOB)] and then he visibly relaxes

[Paladin (BOB)] and gently pulls it out of her grasp

[Paladin (BOB)] looking over his shoulder, They are ok

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We mean no harm

[Paladin (BOB)] So Branwyn is it?

Miranda (Kaz) looks at Branwyn and back to the Paladin.

[Paladin (BOB)] I do not know if you mean harm or if you will bring harm

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Our Captain was a friend of Old Man Miller the original owner of this tavern

[Paladin (BOB)] nods,

[Branwyn (Lisa)] yes it is

Miranda (Kaz) releases her spell without casting it.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Pardon me, but who are you?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And so when we discovered this was not Miller, we were concerned

[Paladin (BOB)] Old Man Miller died in the fire during the battle of the Dragon

[Miranda (Kaz)] Yes, we were there.

[Paladin (BOB)] this is just some ...

[Miranda (Kaz)] That is how we knew he wasn't Old Man Miller.

[Paladin (BOB)] looks at Miranda

[Paladin (BOB)] You were here for the Battle of the Dragon?

[Miranda (Kaz)] It was our first day in the Company

[Miranda (Kaz)] It just swooped in an...

Miranda (Kaz) stops and shakes her head sadly.

[BOB] Father Ilgen moved 17'05".

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] looks over at the group, You were in the Battle of teh Dragon?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] looks back at the Paladin

Miranda (Kaz) looks at Branwyn.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] I really have no clue who they are

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] but they do seem to want to do good things

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I wish that we were. When we arrived, the dragon was here and troops were already scattering

[Miranda (Kaz)] Not so much. The Corporal hustled as many of us as survived the first onslaught into the cellar of this very tavern. I can't say we were IN the battle. Not after the first ten minutes.

[Miranda (Kaz)] ((actually, we were already in formation when the dragon came))

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (was close :) )

[Miranda (Kaz)] Not that we didn't have to deal with the zombies.

[Miranda (Kaz)] And what they were doing in the cellar of a reputable tavern, I'd like to know.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] looks at y our group a bit differently

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] zombies, dragons,

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] you know the old Mosskin?

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] just who are you?

[Miranda (Kaz)] Our friend, Kristelle... Lord Mosskin was her father's mentor.

[Miranda (Kaz)] We're just... us.

[Miranda (Kaz)] We are technically part of Dragonslayers company, but we are allowed to work separately.

[Father Ilgen (BOB)] sits up straighter

[Paladin (BOB)] you are Dragonslayers?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes

[Paladin (BOB)] are you for Hire?

[Miranda (Kaz)] For whatever good that does.

[Paladin (BOB)] I thought most of the Dragonslayers Company died at the Battle of the Dragon

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It depends. We have friends who may be dying that we must first attend to.

Miranda (Kaz) nods sadly.

[Miranda (Kaz)] That is why the Corporal got us to the tavern cellar as quickly as he could.

[Paladin (BOB)] so you do have someone dying?

[Paladin (BOB)] that was not a ruse?

[Miranda (Kaz)] We obeyed him, some did not.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not at all

[Miranda (Kaz)] We have one dying of the wasting disease caused by leeches.

[Miranda (Kaz)] And one who may be ill with plague. But even if we can't help her, we were told the Brothers may be able to help him.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Is it true that you can cure the wasting disease?

[Paladin (BOB)] takes a deep breath

[Paladin (BOB)] yes I can cure him of that

Miranda (Kaz) lets out a sigh of relief.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And perhaps we can be of service to you in return.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Jistille Keep has been hit with plague, but they should be clear within two days.

[Miranda (Kaz)] What need did you have of us?

[Paladin (BOB)] I can think of dozens of things that the Dragonslayers Company could help us with

[Paladin (BOB)] I must think on this

[Paladin (BOB)] we can travel there in the morning

[Paladin (BOB)] I will get my Brother

[Paladin (BOB)] we will guard the tavern here

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And what is your name if I may ask?

Miranda (Kaz) sinks into a chair and puts her head in her arms

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] I am brother Elmond

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] and my Brother Toth is out side guarding

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We are glad to have found you Brother Elmond. Thank you for agreeing to help us

Indigo (Lisa) walks over to Miranda awkwardly and pats her on the back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Can we stay in the tavern over night?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] looks in carefully

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] if Brother Elmond vouces for you then yes you can stay

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Brother Elmond, why would we need guards? Is it unsafe still in these parts?

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] it is always unsafe under this infernal Mist

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] but it is no more unsafe here at the tavern than it is anywhere else

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] and as long as you do not mean mischief then you should enjoy the evening here

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] stands up

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] I will return in the morning

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] I will go continue my conversations with Jill

[Brother Elmond (BOB)] nods at the group

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Good night to you then.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] so

Miranda (Kaz) lifts her head.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Good night.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] what did you guys tell him ?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] and how did you get past his test?

[Miranda (Kaz)] get past?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The truth. I passed because I meant no harm

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] HAH

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I mean no harm either

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] holds up his palm

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] where there is a line burned into it

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] that does not mean you can pass

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles and holds up her hand

[Miranda (Kaz)] Why do you pretend to be Old Man Miller?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] who better to be him?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] no one wants him to come back

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] even if he could

[Miranda (Kaz)] Well, the actual Old Man Miller. But dead is dead.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Better than paying for a new tavern sign?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] grins

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] exactly

Miranda (Kaz) lets out a half laugh.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I rebuilt this place

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] why not get to enjoy it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why not? I do not blame you.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Just as long as you haven't restocked the basement with zombies.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] shudders

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] no

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I keep a heavy chest on top of that door

Miranda (Kaz) shakes her head, gives a gentle smile of thanks to Indigo, and goes to get her warm ale.

[Miranda (Kaz)] Why?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] after what I heard about the last Old Man Miller

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I do not want to go anywhere near there

[Miranda (Kaz)] It should be empty.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] if you want to go check

Miranda (Kaz) shrugs.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] do it when I am a hundred miles away

[Miranda (Kaz)] It was empty when we left it.

[Miranda (Kaz)] I don't see anything getting back in there.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you know why he kept zombies in his cellar?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Patrons who did not pay their tabs?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] no clue

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] and I want to keep it that way

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You seems to know something about the man and now you have me curious

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I know the rumors

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] from teh people who came here after I reopened

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And what do they say?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] they ask for things

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] want to buy things, sell things

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I just say we have changed our buisness model

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] and point to the Paladins hanging out

Miranda (Kaz) shakes her head.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Miranda (Kaz)] The Captain was old friends with him. How could she not know?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe she did

[Miranda (Kaz)] I guess I'm glad Kristelle isn't here. She'd be so angry.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Interesting.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No point in that now. We have men who will save Foriso. That is what is important now.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] How are the accomodations these days? Is there a room for us for the night?

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I can put you in one large room

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That will work nicely.

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] I only hae the common room upstairs

[Old Man Miller (BOB)] no one else is there because so few are on the roads

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We had not planned to be gone this long. Would it be possible to get some dinner tonight as well?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And tomorrow we shall save Foriso. Cheer up Miranda. All will be well again

[Miranda (Kaz)] And Kristelle?

Miranda (Kaz) sighs.

[Miranda (Kaz)] She's strong, right? She'll fight it.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She is strong. I believe she will win out in this battle too

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (smiles)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We can ask Brother Elmond in the morning if he can do something to aid Kristelle in her fight even if he cannot cure her

[Miranda (Kaz)] You know she will not let him or anyone else near her.

[BOB] tis a wonderful thing

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You may cast from a distance. Maybe there is something he can do

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We can try

[Lisa] And the clanging of XP means we are done for the evening?
