<Narrator> ===== Session Start! ===== <Narrator> The Shining force was teleported away from the shrine of Mitula as the black dragon attacked... Vankarin left the party to head back to New Granseal with Chamolo's father... <Narrator> The Shining Force appears over a small lake and splashes down into it! <Baine> ACK * Lara executes a perfect swan dive. <Kodah> (blub) * Chamolo arghs and falls in with a hard slap! O_o Bellyflop! * Erin flies, avoiding the fall... * <Kodah> (sputter, flop) * Baine surfaces, sputtering and coughing.. <Kodah> (thrash, gurgle) * Chamolo comes out of the water, looking a little dazed. "Ow." <Lara> is everyone alright? * Baine reaches down and grabs Kodah by the collar, hauling him above surface.. :P <Kodah> (sink) * Erin looks helplessly at the others. * ^_^; <Erin> Yeah, I'm fine. <Kodah> O_o * Indigo gurgles and tries to summon Neptune... <Chamolo> Yeah, I'm okay. Where's Baine? And K-- Oh nevermind. <Lara> ok, the bank. <Kodah> What hapened? O_o * Baine grins at Chamolo and splashes him :P <Narrator> FlameStrike is nowhere to be seen... * Lara starts swimming to the banks of the lake. * Chamolo acks and playfully splashes back. ^_^ * Baine leaps on Chamolo and dunks him! ;) <Lara> by the way, what happened to FlameStrike? * Kodah looks around, "How did we get here?" * Chamolo acks and tries to get up! <Erin> No clue... * Baine lets up :P <Chamolo> Th-thanks! * Yogurt swims circles around everyone, as though he was walking through the water... * Baine grins and nods before diving and swimming to the banks.. * Chamolo looks around. "Where did Flamestrike go?" * Lara pulls herself up onto the pond bank. "That was interesting." <Baine> He's probably cooling off <Yogurt> Oh Flaaaaaaammmeeeeessstriiiiiiikkkeeeeeeee??? * Kodah dog paddles to the shore <Chamolo> Hmm..that sounds about right. * Baine chuckles at Kodah :P * Chamolo swims to shore. * Yogurt dives under water trying to spot FlameStrike... <Lara> from now on, Let's not try swimming in our fighting attire? * Kodah clambers out of the water with no finesse whatsoever <Baine> I dunno, I kinda like this. :P <Baine> Its fun for once. :P * Chamolo jumps up with a little more finesse than Kodah. * Chamolo spits out some water. <Kodah> Ugh * Baine chuckles :P <Baine> Welcome to land, sires.. :P * Kodah tries to wring some water out of his clothes <Chamolo> That water's cold! * Lara looks around, trying to visualize where they are at? <Baine> What'd you figure? A hot tub? ;) * Yogurt resurfaces, not wet AT ALL... * Chamolo shakes some of the wetness from his hair, and wipes his glasses off. * Baine looks at Yogurt.. :P <Chamolo> Well, no...but... <Chamolo> At least a tolerable temperature would have been nice... * Erin gently drops onto the ground, and tucks her wings back... * <Yogurt> No sign of dragon boy... <Erin> So what's the plan? * Baine hauls off her ninja mask and shakes her head quickly, her wet hair sending water everywhere.. ^_^ * Kodah unsheathes his sword so the scabbard wont shrink shut on it, and removes his leather belt too <Lara> Well, where the hell did he go to? * Baine stops and wrings out her mask :P * Chamolo narrowly misses being splashed! <Chamolo> Careful Baine! * Baine chuckles and grins at Chamolo. :P * Baine slips her mask back on. <Lara> We're not far from Bedoe, folks... <Yogurt> I have no clue... :P * Kodah looks around, then looks at Lara, "How can you tell?" O_o <Baine> Bedoe, hmm? <Lara> Landmarks... * Kiwi splashes around in Da water... <Kodah> What landmarks? <Lara> This lake is not far from the town of Polca. <Lara> and from there, we can get to Bedoe. <Chamolo> Excellent... ^_^ <Baine> Its about time to update our weapons, isn't it..? <Kodah> Uh....okay <Lara> just about... * Chamolo looks at his staff. "Didnt' we just...?" * Baine looks at her empty pouch.. <Baine> I have no items. :P * Kodah baps the side of his head to get some water out of his ears * Lara starts walking to the east northeast. "Let's get moving." * Baine makes a funny face at Lara's back and follows. ;) * Kodah walks, grumbling about his underwear riding up * Chamolo hmms. "Oh well...least I got a bath..." * Lara looks around. <Baine> Hah...get the last bits of oil offa yourself, Cham? ^_- * Chamolo hears a wet squishing sound in his boots "But my boots....ruined...sigh." <Chamolo> Wasn't it ink? <Lara> and my hair is now a royal mess... <Lara> oh no....what of.. <Baine> Ink, oil, same chemicals different animals :P <Chamolo> I think so... <Kodah> Covered in ink.....dumped in a lake....I did not sign on for that..... * Lara looks down and sees that her pendant is still around her neck. "Thank Mitula it's still there." <Baine> What'd you expect, Kodah? Dancing girls and wine? ^_- * Yogurt looks around... I wonder where the big fat doofus is... <Baine> I can dance...but you'd lose ability to walk.. :P * Kodah grumples a bit * Lara thinks to herself,"I thought I had lost that thing." * Chamolo gulps too "Dancing women?" * Baine chuckles at Chamolo. ;) * Lara snickers a bit. <Chamolo> What? What did I say? * Chamolo looks confused. O_o * Baine squeezes Cham's shoulder and chuckles some more as she lets go and does a forward flip. ^_^ <Chamolo> Wh..Wha? Whoa! * Kodah baps the side of his head a few more times * Baine lands gracefully on her feet and smiles. <Chamolo> Oh, OH! I get it now. Impressive! * Yogurt yawns.... * Baine grins at Chamolo and bows a little. ^_^ <Yogurt> So... What are we still doing here? * Lara walks along, humming a tune to herself. <Kodah> So how far is it to this place anyhow? <Lara> not far, Kodah... * Yogurt scurries about, looking for FS... * Baine straightens and cracks her back. "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" ;) <Kodah> I hope not, I need to dry off <Lara> join the club, Kodah.. <Chamolo> Me too. * Lara looks to the Horizon. "Polca shouldn't be that far off". <Baine> I can dry you off. ^_^ * Baine flicks a finger and a small flame flickers on. ^_^ * Baine flicks a finger again and it disappears. ;) * Kodah wrings some more water out of his shirt * Chamolo walks along, quietly... * Yogurt blarghs... That big oaf can take care of himself... <Baine> You know what we need? A good battle.. * Baine raises an eyebrow <Kodah> We do? <Lara> not at this point, Kara... <Baine> Sure. Loosen up the old joints. ^_- <Narrator> The river flows along towards Polca... The waters seem darker than natural as the team advances... <Lara> I'd hate to see how these wet clothes slow me down. * Baine looks at the water.. <Baine> Hmm.. * Kodah checks his joints to see if they're loose enough <Lara> This is not right. I wonder what's going on? * Chamolo walks along, his boots making squishing sounds. * Baine saunters over and stops at the edge of the water. * Baine looks down into it.. ^_- * Chamolo hmms, wondering if he should walk barefoot. * Kodah looks at the water, "Is that normal for around here?" <Lara> No, it's not, Kodah... <Baine> Wonder if it tastes like Kool-Aid :P <Kodah> Oh <Lara> I've been here before. I wonder what caused this? Darksol? <Chamolo> I wouldn't try it, Baine... <Baine> Probably Darksol <Chamolo> I agree with careful.. * Chamolo hmms. * Chamolo wonders....and plucks a small piece of grass, and sticks it in the water. * Baine hmms and dips the tip of her boot into the water <Lara> something tells me that we're in for one hell of a surprise when we get to Polca. <Chamolo> Baine! Get your foot out of the water! <Kodah> Oh goodie, more surprises <Baine> My foot isn't in the water. :P <Lara> Kara, it could be acidic... <Baine> The boot is. ^_- <Chamolo> Still, get it out! * Chamolo looks stern, but not prissy * Baine blinks and looks at Chamolo :P * Chamolo pulls out the piece of grass...and looks at it. <Chamolo> Nothing....hmm. <Narrator> The water starts smelling somewhat funny... * Baine steps in the water. :P <Lara> This is not good at all. What happened to the water? <Kodah> Phew! <Baine> See? No acid. ;) <Chamolo> What's that smell? * Baine steps out of the water. * Chamolo holds his nose * Baine sniffs the air.. <Lara> I have no idea....but it is rather putrid. <Baine> Huh.. <Narrator> The smell of bitter fruit comes to mind... <Erin> I've never really cared for water... <Lara> why does it smell like percimmons? <Chamolo> Erin...water is water? * Baine wrinkles her nose * Lara covers her nose and mouth as she walks. <Chamolo> Maybe we should just move on. <Baine> This smells absoloutly lovely.. * Baine chuckles softly.. <Erin> Yeah, but I've never been a fan of it... If my wings get wet, it's really hard to fly. :( <Kodah> Compared to what? <Chamolo> You DO drink it, right? <Baine> Compared to the waste of the Clan members in the main river, Kodah.. :P <Erin> Yeah... of course. :P <Kodah> Oh * Lara just keeps walking to Polca. * Kodah holds his nose and follows <Lara> let's keep going, people. Our answers may be waiting in Polca? * Chamolo follows, still holding his nose. <Lara> this whole area just reeks of Darksol's influence. * Baine's mask filters most of the smell out.. :P <Narrator> The smell of cooking meat slowly takes over the foul stench of the river... <Lara> hmm? <Kodah> Uh..... <Kodah> Is that normal around here either? <Baine> Ooh <Baine> Meat <Lara> Now, THERE'S a tempting aroma. <Chamolo> Hmm....smells like a roast of some kind... * Lara follows her nose to the smell of cooking meet. * Baine drags Cham gently along. ;) * Chamolo is dragged. O_o <Kodah> Ooh....that smell...... * Chamolo mouth waters. "I'm getting's been a while since I ate.." * Baine sniffs the air again.. * Lara thinks she recognizes that scent... <Baine> Me too...but I can go without.. * Kodah keeps plodding along, not looking happy about this whole situation * Lara just follows the scent. <Baine> You know...a good smell doesn't mean a good thing... <Baine> It could be a trap.. <Narrator> Smoke can be seen over Polca... But it seems more like cooking smoke than anything else... <Chamolo> I know...maybe I'm just hopful tht is IS a good thing. <Chamolo> Perhapss it's a cookout? * Lara heads toward the smoke. * Baine smiles and pats Cham's stomach lightly. "Yeah. Perhaps." <Baine> You won't starve. :P * Chamolo smiles. * Lara picks up the pace. <Narrator> The village gates can be seen not far away now... * Lara heads into town. * Baine follows Lara and gazes at the smoke <Baine> Are these guys cannibals? ^_^ <Narrator> The smoke seems to be coming from the middle of the village... Flames can be seen jumping in the air as the team advances closer... <Kodah> Huh? <Chamolo> Cana...bals? <Chamolo> No way! * Baine shrugs. "Just a thought!." <Lara> well, at least no houses are burning...let's check it out. * Lara keeps walking. * Chamolo still hopes it's a good thing...or that Darksol isn't into cookouts... * Yogurt freezes... * Kodah follows allong, looking a little concerned <Lara> Yogurt, what's up? <Yogurt> Uhm... <Yogurt> This isn't normal... <Chamolo> what isn't? <Lara> maybe not..but we do have to check it out. <Kodah> No kidding * Baine raises an eyebrow * Chamolo 's face falls. <Yogurt> Palcon houses wolfmen... Protected by the birdmen of Bedoe.. <Chamolo> More trouble? <Kodah> Flames going that high says 'Bonfire' to me <Yogurt> And the houses are all empty... O_o * Baine patpats Cham on the shoulder and offers him some beef jerky.. :P <Lara> well, we'd better check it out no less. <Lara> come on. <Chamolo> Oh no...some type of plauge? <Baine> Plagues....lovely.. <Kodah> I hope not O_o * Yogurt grumbles, not liking this AT ALL... <Lara> just frickin perfect.. * Lara keeps walking into Polca. <Narrator> The square is quite close now... * Baine peers.. * Lara walks into the town square... * Yogurt suddenly yelps! * Lara looks around... <Kodah> Oop! <Baine> Yogurt? <Chamolo> Yogurt!

They killed a Birdman.. * Baine looks for the water.. <Kodah> Who did? <Baine> Hmm.. * Lara shakes her head slowly.... <Chamolo> Why? <Lara> The birdmen of Bedoe protected this town.. "Why would the wolfmen just burn kill one like that?" <Chamolo> Maybe it turned evil...but that makes no sense... * Yogurt goes to the sleeping Wolfmen... <Chamolo> Those wolfmen were crazed... <Lara> let's get into Bedoe... <Lara> our answers may lie there. <Kodah> ..... <Chamolo> ...Right... * Lara walks on into Bedoe. * Baine blinks.. <Kodah> Uh....okay * Yogurt sighs and shakes his head.. * Baine looks at Lara and then at the wolfmen <Baine> But.. * Darton stays away from the Shining Force, mumbling to himself.. * Chamolo looks at Darton and shakes his head. * Yogurt moves away from the Wolfmen...

But why? * Chamolo then blinks O_o <Chamolo> Did someone poison the water, then blame the other for it?! <Baine> Water.... * Baine nods to Cham.. "That would make sense of this carnage." <Chamolo> I'm telling you, it has something to do with that water! <Narrator> Suddenly, the door to the birdmen's city slightly opens... And Lara hears a voice she recognizes saying, "Identify yourselves..." * Kodah continues slowly after the Shining Force, looking very dazed <Chamolo> ... <Lara> I'm Lara Mano of the Shining Force... <Chamolo> I'm Chamolo Willcott of the Granseal Church. <Baine> Baine of the White Lions Claw. <Lara> Wait a minute.... <Lara> I know that voice... <Lara> Prince BlackHawk, show yourself. <Erin> Chief Strategist Gallant, of the Shining Force... * Chamolo looks to Lara. <Chamolo> O_o <BlackHawk> What in the hell are YOU doing here, Lara? * Kodah finally manages to catch up with the SF, looking very green * Baine smiles softly at Kodah and pats him on the shoulder. * Chamolo just decides to be quiet and let Lara speak. <Baine> It'll be okay.

We could be trapped in a Nancy Drew novel. <Narrator> The walls of the stronghold shake more and more...... * Kodah stumbles <Narrator> The children and women in the back shiver with fear... <Baine> Then again, I could be wrong. ^_^; * Chamolo pales. "What's happening...?" * BlackHawk looks blankly... "They're coming back for another assault!!" <Narrator> ==== Session end! =====
