<Narrator> ===== SESSION START ===== <Narrator> The Shining Force is surrounded by approximately 10 wolfmen... they're all gaping at Darton... * Darton is wondering why they think he's something special... * Indigo wakes up and looks around blearily. * Baine raises an eyebrow.. * Chamolo blinks. <Kodah> Um.... * Indigo blinks and stretches, then looks at the wolfmen and Darton. * The wolfmen poke Darton as if he was an experiment... * Baine leans on AmeShi, eyeing the wolfmen. :P * Kiwi looks confused. <Kodah> Uh.... * Darton snarls at the pokings "Next one to poke loses the finger." <Baine> Mmrrmmm...The Chosen one, eh? <Baine> Makes him sound like a fruit basket.. <Chamolo> Chosen one at what? -_- * The wolfmen pull back, startled... <Baine> Chosen attttt...killing? :P * Darton glares at Baine <Kodah> Chosen? Who chose him? <Baine> Hey want a fight, I'll gladly oblige Darton. <Darton> Not me. :P <Kodah> And for what? <Chamolo> The wolfmen did, apparently. <Kodah> ^^;; * Baine smirks coolly, sadness still in her eyes... <Indigo> Perhaps the same force that brought us together chose Darton. <Darton> What ARE you staring at? :P I'm no chosen one <Baine> So he's a Chosen what..? * The wolfmen talk amongst themselves... * Kodah flops down onto the ground and once again waits for events to sort themselves out * Chamolo tries to listen in on what they're saying <Baine> Mmm.. <Baine> Lovely.. * Indigo blinks. <Chamolo> I can't hear them.. <Baine> Must be a wolf thing. * The wolfmen nod to eachother and look at Darton... "You cannot be Zylo's heir... It's impossible..." * Darton crosses his arms in front of him. "That's right. Now leave me alone." :P * Baine chuckles.. <Kodah> Zylo? Who's that? <Indigo> Zylo? <Baine> Not much for public affection, is he..? <Chamolo> Zylo! That name I have heard...he was with.... <Yogurt> Zylo was of the first Shining force... Tough wolfman... :P <Chamolo> I thought so. * Yogurt glares at Darton... Unlike *him*... * Kiwi blinks. "Kiwi confuseled. Kiwi no know what's happening..." <Baine> Now now, rat.. * Indigo pales. * Darton grins "You wanna see how tough I am, rat? I'll be glaaad to oblige..." * Baine smirks... <Kodah> How many descendents or persons otherwise related to the origiona; shining force do we have here anyhow? O_o <Wolfmen> We thought the chosen of Zylo's heritage would be... Much more... Stable than... You... <Chamolo> I don't think I'm related to anyone... <Baine> I'm descended from a farmer.. :P <Baine> A dead farmer.. :P <Baine> With a dead wife.. * Indigo frowns. <Chamolo> Then again, I'm an ... <Indigo> I'm not sure about myself. There's something....... * Chamolo looks down. * Baine pokes Cham. "Hey now. We're all 'family' here, eh? Nothing like friends to cheer yah up.." * Chamolo smiles. "You're right!" * Darton snickers... "Heritage is nothing. And I have words for anyone who abandons a little wolf cub, namely me, somewhere in Tristan." * Baine grins at Chamolo <Baine> isn't the chosen one.. <Baine> Now what? <Kodah> He's not the chosen one? <Wolfmen> You weren't abandonned... You were left in the care of a healer of our choosing for your education... <Chamolo> Healer...? <Chamolo> Hmm. <Darton> Ha! That bitch? * Baine quirks an eyebrow. <Indigo> Maybe find out who is the chosen one? That person may be able to command the wolfmen being misled by my opposite. <Kiwi> Kiwi chosen to be confused... * Baine juggles AmeShi from hand to hand * Kodah gets up and walks away, "Let me know when its all sorted out, my head hurts" <Indigo> If the wolfmen are taken from her control, everyone's life will be easier, and there will be less death. <Chamolo> I'm confused too.. <Baine> o/~ Roses are red, violets are blue...honey is sweet but not as sweet as you! o/~ <Chamolo> Baine? * Baine drops AmeShi and it hits her foot :P * Baine ows.. O_o <Chamolo> O_o <Chamolo> Be careful! :) * Baine picks it up and nods, grinning meekly :P <Chamolo> So, where to now...? * The wolfmen shake their heads... No... Chosen one or not, you cannot be accepted... <Baine> Thats what I've been asking :P <Chamolo> Heh. <Darton> Accepted? * Baine blinks.. * Indigo blinks, sitting down. <Darton> What the hell's that supposed to mean? <Baine> Accepted? hey now...thats kinda....cruel.. * Baine hrmphs.. * Chamolo sighs. <Wolfmen> You were to be the new leader of the wolfmen after the apocalypse... It is too soon... <Indigo> Apocalypse? <Baine> Apocalypse? O_o <Chamolo> A...a...apocalypse? * Darton laughs... "Leader? Me? You joke." * The Wolfmen nod... After the great destruction... <Baine> Heh.. * Baine sneezes <Baine> Ow. :P <Chamolo> O_o Destruction...? * Baine hmms <Wolfmen> We thought Zylo's ressources would be inherited into you... We were mistaken. <Baine> destruction.. <Indigo> What is the nature of this destruction? <Darton> I suppose so. Bye now. <Kiwi> Kiwi no like destruction. Kiwi like cootness and peace... * Darton turns his back and starts walking away * Chamolo shrugs. <Chamolo> Guess he's just not meant to lead....sigh... <Baine> Le sigh. :P <Chamolo> Heh. Le sigh is right <Indigo> Well, we have nowhere to go now. <Chamolo> Wait.. <Narrator> Wolfmen: The destruction brought on by the great Dragon... <Chamolo> Didn't Volcanon talk about a traitor..? <Baine> Great Dragon.. <Indigo> Dragon? As in the Dark Dragon? * The wolfmen nod... * Indigo frowns, the sanity waning and waxing in her eyes for several minutes. <Chamolo> Don't worry, we'll stop any cost. <Baine> Heh.. <Baine> Costs can run high among mortals.. <Indigo> It should be a simple matter with our abilities. <Chamolo> No kidding.. * The wolfmen blink... Who are you, of all people, to go up against Dark Dragon? <Baine> Indigo, you are a cocky half assed slut who needs to get a clue. ^_^ <Chamolo> We're the.... <Indigo> We're the Shining Force. * Indigo blinks. * Kodah yells from the next room, "Depending on who you ask!" <Kiwi> Kiwi is Kiwi! ^_^ <Indigo> No I am not! * Indigo turns to the wolfmen. <Baine> Then stop being so arrogant. <Indigo> I am Indigo Mysteria, a sorceress. * Baine crosses her arms and shakes her head.. * The wolfmen are speechless... <Chamolo> I'm Chamolo Willcott... * Indigo bows. "Well, an elementalist actually, but same thing." <Baine> Baine of the White Lions Claw. * Kodah leans against the door frame and grumbles to himself <Baine> Kodah, don't be so cheery.. * Baine flashes a great big smile at Kodah ;) * The wolfmen talk to themselves again and run out the stronghold quickly... <Kodah> (Baine)Huh? O_o * Indigo straightens, shaking her head and wandering towards the gates. * Baine chuckles * Chamolo follows Indigo, out of lack of anything better to do. <Baine> "Wash the angels from your head, won't need 'em anymore.." * Darton is standing by the gates * Baine follows Chamolo and Indigo * Kodah waits for the others, then falls in step with them <Chamolo> So now where...? * The pack of wolfmen run quickly to the town, not paying attention to the chaos around them... * Indigo stops and shakes her head, then wanders on past Darton for a few feet. * Kiwi pokes Chamolo and looks at him with wide eyes... <Darton> There you guys are. <Baine> Mmmm...anywhere except Hassan.. <Chamolo> Yes Kiwi? <Kiwi> ... Chammy know what happening? Kiwi no know and Kiwi confuseled... <Chamolo> Not really, except that Darton was suposed to be this big warrior, but he's really not... * Kiwi looks as if he's about to cry, judging from his shining eyes... <Narrator> A glowing ball of light can be seen coming from the middle of Polca... <Kiwi> Meep? <Chamolo> Hey...don't cry... * Indigo turns towards it. <Kodah> that normal? <Baine> Huh.. <Indigo> Pretty....... * Chamolo blinks... * Baine raises an eyebrow <Baine> Christmas early this year..? <Kodah> ^^;; * Darton notes it and mutters "Maybe we should be idiots and go there... be a good chance to kill something." <Chamolo> What's going on...? <Baine> Heyyy.. * Chamolo blinks <Baine> Kill...theres an idea.. * Yogurt blinks and grins... * Baine grins and patpats AmeShi <Chamolo> You know, we don't have to kill unlesss necessary.. <Kiwi> Kiwi no like killing... <Baine> Mmm...I used to thrive off killing, though... <Darton> Get over it, I like killing. * Baine runs a hand through her hair. * Kodah looks at the town off in the dstance, not liking that glow one bit <Chamolo> Maybe you do, but maybe that's why no one likes you *Mutters to himself* <Baine> Shall we go check it out, guys? * Baine glances at Chamolo. * Kiwi nod-nods! <Baine> Alright! <Chamolo> Let's go. <Darton> Sounds fun. <Baine> Seeing as how BH and Lara are off screwing, lets go! Chamolo is in charge! ;) <Kodah> Go? Where? *points* To that?! <Baine> Yes, Kodah :P <Baine> To the big beam of light :P <Chamolo> I' charge?

All's I know is I am on my way.... o~ <Narrator> The Shining force heads down the path of dead bodies once again... <Baine> Lovely.. <Baine> someone should clean these up.. * Chamolo turns green again <Darton> Why? <Chamolo> I hate this road... * Kiwi whimpers... * Baine chuckles * Yogurt skitters along quickly, knowing what's up in the town square... ^_^ * Baine doesn't seem at all bothered by the dead people :P * Kodah tries to ignore the bodies and keeps singing to himself <Baine> Someone could trip over a body and hurt themselves! * Baine tsk tsks.. * Chamolo sighs. Le sighs. <Darton> so? If they did that, it'd be their fault. * Baine flashes Chamolo a apologetic grin ^_^ * Baine continues to drag him! * Baine says in a high voice: "Oh, Ken! I'm having so much fun!!" * Baine snickers.. <Chamolo> My name isn't Ken! <Baine> I know that, Cham... ;) <Narrator> The wolfmen are in the middle of the town square... A large chest is the source of the light... <Baine> Ooh.. <Chamolo> That is quite a chest... <Baine> does it play music when it opens, too? <Kodah> Gee...that's normal ^^;; <Chamolo> Should we open it? <Darton> damn. Nothing to kill. <Wolfmen> This is our gift to the Shining Force... <Baine> O_o <Chamolo> To us?! O_o <Kodah> ?? <Kodah> Why? * Baine's eyes widen <Baine> Say what? :P <Baine> Why? <Baine> We didn't do anything! :P <Chamolo> Why...we thank you must humbly for this gift, but we can't accept-- * Indigo tries analyzing the chest with her senses. * Kiwi sniffs at the chest... * Baine pulls her mask down and eyes the chest <Baine> Hmm.. <Baine> Hell, lets open it! * Baine grins <Chamolo> I mean...can we accept that..? * The wolfmen walk on the side... <Darton> Christmas early, eh? <Kodah> ..... <Baine> Well..sure we can.. * Baine walks to the chest and attempts to open it! <Darton> Someone else open it. <Narrator> The chest's energy disperses, ending the glow... It opens easily... <Kodah> ? * Indigo prepares to summon Dao to smash it open, then blinks. <Baine> Wicked.. <Chamolo> What's inside, Baine? * Baine peers inside * Kiwi cocks his head curiously... <Narrator> A funny device and a golden claw are seen inside... <Baine> Eh.. <Baine> A claw.. O_o * Lara walks out with BH....both are grinning from ear to ear. * Baine picks up the device.. * Baine peers at it * Indigo tries analyzing it. <Lara> watcha find, Kara? <Baine> Is it an onion peeler? * Erin blinks... The Nazca cannon! O_O <Baine> ah.. <Baine> Too bad. <Baine> I've always wanted an onion peeler. * Erin flies over and takes the cannon... * Darton looks inside... "Gold claw? Not quite my style... but hell, I'll take it." <Chamolo> You can't be serious...THE Nazca Cannon?! <Kodah> The whozca whatzit? <Kiwi> N-a-z-c-a? * Erin inspects the cannon intently... <Lara> Hold on a second?

The cannon of legend? <Baine> Heh...I'm sure Jeyer will be thrilled with our find.. <Chamolo> Apparently! * Baine looks back in the chest <Baine> C'mon...gotta be something else! * Chamolo flinches at the name 'Jeyer'. <BlackHawk> Let me look at it * The wolfmen look at Darton... That is Zylo's claw... You are not ready to wield it yet... * Indigo just nods. * Baine sighs :P <Darton> Never thought he had a gold claw :P <Baine> What a ripoff! :P * Erin, too absorbed by the discovery, doesn't hear anyone... * Baine grins, mask down. * Chamolo hms. <Baine> Ah hell...wonder if we could sell the chest for money.. ^_^ * Kodah goes over to Erin and looks to the NC, "I dont; see what's so special about it" * BlackHawk looks at the cannon. "I've seen pictures in the Guardiana library. That's the nazca cannon alright." <Darton> we get one useful thing and one piece of luggage. Thanks bunches. <Wolfmen> He built it after the Shining Force's victory... We never knew why.... <Baine> Hah, Darton! ^_^ * Kiwi awps... "Kiwi no know what Nazca-thing is. Kiwi confuseled..." <Lara> join the club, Kiwi. <Baine> Mmm....yep...Jeyer will probably be tickled pink.. <Chamolo> It's a big cannon Kiwi. Could make Darksol go 'boom'! <Kodah> ..... * Erin tries to use the cannon, but it doesn't seem to work.. O_o * Baine chuckles softly.. <Baine> probably need Jeyer to use it.. :P * Chamolo flinches again at the name 'Jeyer' <Yogurt> Yeah... Jeyer might help... * Chamolo flinches yet again, eyes down <Lara> well, maybe we should start back to Granseal. Remember Volcannon's words. <Yogurt> Cuz Jeyer's a Nazca descendant... <Yogurt> Jeyer's sure to help... * Chamolo really looks down now. <Yogurt> Jeyer Jeyer Jeyer Jeyer Jeyer Jeyer... * Darton reaches into the box and grabs the claw, looking at it a bit <Lara> YOGURT! <Lara> CUT IT OUT! * Baine notices Cham and playfully slugs him in the arm.. "Cheer up, cutie." <Chamolo> O_o What is so great about--oh nevermind. <Kiwi> Kiwi no been to Granseal in while.. * Chamolo smiles slightly. * Baine smiles at him. ^_^ * Yogurt grins... Jeyer.. <g> * Chamolo arghs and goes to strangle Yogurt! * Yogurt goes dead serious.. <Baine> Woogh.. :P <Lara> anyway, there's something I want you to look at for a second, Yogurt. I have had my suspicions about the Prince's sword. I want you to take a look. * Chamolo stops and ahems. * Yogurt hops inside the chest... O_o * Baine eyes Chamolo. "Kinda touchy, no?" ;) <Chamolo> Sorry, lost my head for a moment. *Cough Cough* <Kodah> ..... * Yogurt yells, "In a minute, Lara!" * Baine looks at Kodah. "Having fun with the dots?" <Chamolo> It's okay, Yogurt. You can come out now. <Kodah> Huh? O_o * Yogurt hops inside the chest, blinking... <Narrator> Erhm... * Baine grins and patpats Kodah! * Yogurt crawls out... Erhm... * Kodah is patpated and seems unsure as to how to react to that O_o * Darton attempts to put on the claw anyway * Kiwi peers in the chest... "What you doing?" * Yogurt blinks again... * Chamolo sorta walks off to the side, embarrassed at what he did. <Yogurt> Someone tap the bottom of the chest for me... O_o * Baine taps the bottom of the chest.. :P <Kiwi> Merp? <Narrator> The Chest emits a hollow sound... <Lara> hmmm? <Baine> Huh.. <Darton> Fun... what else we got here? <Baine> Hollow? * Baine looks at Cham.."Hrm...wonder whats got him razzled.." <Yogurt> Beats me... o_O * Baine unsheathes AmeShi.. <Yogurt> Someone break the bottom of the chest... * Baine drives it into the bottom of the chest! * Kiwi claws at the bottom... <Yogurt> O_o <Lara> this is mega weird. * Baine rips it back and forth, cutting away the bottom <Yogurt> That'll do... :P * Kiwi meeps and gets out of the way... <Kodah> Why would anyone build a chest with a false bottom? * Baine sheathes AmeShi again, grinning. <Baine> There! * Darton looks inside * Yogurt peers in the chest... * Kiwi peeks too. <Narrator> 5 pieces of cloth lie at the bottom of the chest... <Baine> Clothing? <Yogurt> Wha...? <Lara> what's this? <Baine> Is this Macy's? :P * Lara looks in the chest. <Kodah> ? <Kodah> That's useful... * Yogurt leaps in the chest and takes the pieces of cloth... * Lara picks up the 5 pieces of cloth. <Darton> Ehh, we got our little gifts, let's go. * Yogurt blinks... <Yogurt> This is weird...

"Can we go yet?" <Yogurt> A drawing of the old Shining Force... And a.. Map... O_O <Baine> map? <Chamolo> O_o A map? <Baine> Of what? <Lara> a map? <Chamolo> Is it of our world...? <Kodah> ?? * Baine smirks wryly <Baine> Well.. <Baine> As fun as this is...can we go now? * Lara looks at the map.... * Yogurt blinks... <Chamolo> Yeah...but how can we get to Granseal quickly? <Darton> Let's go, damn it. <Lara> HOLD YOUR HORSES, DARTON... <Baine> Well.. <Narrator> Erhm... This talks about the Star sword... O_o <Chamolo> Get shot out of a cannon or something...? * Kiwi paws at Granseal (on the map)... <Kodah> So......what's the point? <BlackHawk> Star Sword? <Baine> a cannon? O_o * Chamolo shrugs. * Baine eyes Chamolo and feels his forehead :P <BlackHawk> Well, I carry the Guardiana kingdom's Star blade. <Chamolo> I'm joking! ^_^ <Baine> Heheheh...if you say so, boyo. ^_- * Yogurt runs up to BH... Yeah... I noticed that about you... :P <Chamolo> Who couldn't notice ^_- * Baine hmms and crosses her arms, removing her hand from Cham's forehead :P * BlackHawk draws the star blade from it's sheath.. <Yogurt> It... Just doesn't seem to be as powerful as the old days... O_o <Baine> Maybe it needs new batteries * Baine raises an eyebrow * Kiwi runs around in circles out of boredom... <Chamolo> Batter--ies? <Yogurt> Uh... No. :P <Kodah> Star Sword? ...............Is anyone surpirsed I don't know what that is? <BlackHawk> What? * Chamolo then feels Baine's forhead. * Baine chuckles.. ^_^ <Baine> All this feeling, Cham...tsk tsk.. ;) * Baine grins wryly * Lara is still hanging on BH's arm. "You're saying that the blade isn't as powerful as it used to be?" <Chamolo> Huh? * Baine stops grinning and patpats Cham's arm ^_^ <Baine> S'okay. ^_^ * Darton yawns <Chamolo> ^_^ * Baine whistles lightly, feeling oddly happy O_o * Yogurt looks at the sword... It's... Missing something... <Baine> Eh... * Chamolo just stands and watches the others talk <Baine> Maybe the drawing will give us a clue? <Lara> good idea, Kara. * Baine hauls her mask back up and again raises her eyebrow. ^_^ <Baine> Thanks..I can be smart when needed.. ;) <Kodah> Missing somethin? Like what? * Lara looks at the drawing. * Baine draws AmeShi.. <Darton> It's obvious... BlackHawk, give the sword to Lara who is going to put her two little rock things in the hilt :P * Kiwi hides in his shell... * Baine twirls the sword, the black flames roaring.. * BlackHawk hands the Star Blade to Lara. <Darton> ...can we go now? :P <Indigo> I shall join my power to that of the gems as before. * Baine sighs :P * Lara looks at the sword. "While I'm used to my soulsword, oh well." <Baine> I need a battle! * Baine taps her foot. <Chamolo> I don't... ^^; <Baine> Heheheh, Cham....just don't do the muddle bop.. ^_^ <Narrator> The star blade doesn't react... <Lara> hmmm.... <Kodah> Hrmph * Indigo summons her power, flinging it into the gems. <Baine> Heh. :P * Lara hands the blade back to BlackHawk. * Baine hmms for a second and pokes Cham with the hilt of AmeShi.. ;) <Chamolo> Ow! * Chamolo blinks. <Chamolo> Yes...? <Baine> Gee... O_o Brittle bones or wha? :P <Chamolo> No, you just...startled me.. <Kodah> now what? <Narrator> The wolfmen leave, taking care of restoring the village... <Baine> Ah...sorry...I have a tendency to do that.. :P <Lara> I think baine has the right idea. maybe this drawing has a clue. * Lara examines the drawing closely. <Darton> Hopefully, we leave now. * Baine grins at Lara before offering AmeShi to Chamolo.. ^_- <Lara> Darton, will you be patient for a minute...I'm thinking here. <Chamolo> O_O What am I supposed to do with that sword...? <Baine> Take it.. ^_^ Wanna see something! <Chamolo> ...okay.. * Chamolo takes it. <Darton> Patient?

Nothing matters anymore. Everything I cared about has been taken from me today. <Kodah> Excuse me, it seems to me that some dipstick priest looked down on you. The gods may think differently Cham * Baine runs a hand down her face..."Insanity...." <Chamolo> Then why didn't they help me? <Kodah> I can't answer that <Baine> Damnit...if I find out who framed you.. * Kiwi says softly... "Gods test nice priest?" * Baine clenches a fist.. <Kodah> The question is, are you going to stop doing what you've been taught to do? * Lara sighs deeply.. Let's go, people.. We can talk about this in our rooms.. <Chamolo> It's...all right Baine. better for you anyway. * Chamolo walks silently off. * Baine blinks. <Baine> Wh-.. <Kodah> Like hell he is! * Baine blinks again.. * Baine tries to form a coherent word :P <Kodah> RGH!! <Baine> Its not like that.. <Baine> Damnit.. * Baine sighs.. * Baine glances at Kodah.. <Baine> Could you find him? * Lara shakes her head and walks back to the Inn... <Kodah> Yeah, I will <Baine> Thank you... * Kodah heads off after Chammy * Baine stands there for a second.. * Baine murmurs.. * Baine walks back to the inn.. <Narrator> ===== Cut scene! ===== <Narrator> Inside the store, Chamolo stands at the counter, acting pitiful while buying supplies... * Kodah looks at Cham from the doorway <Kodah> Hey... * Chamolo nods slightly, and stuffs all of the items into a bag. * Chamolo turns around. "Oh...hey." <Kodah> Walk with me for a bit would you Cham? * Chamolo shrugs. "Sure. Why not?" <Kodah> Let me ask you something <Chamolo> Sure. Go ahead. <Kodah> Are you giving up? * Chamolo blinks. "I don't have a choice." <Kodah> Really? I find that very hard to beleive <Chamolo> No matter what I said or did to defend myself...I still got blamed... <Chamolo> And...and...I'm useless to the team now. <Chamolo> Humph. Who wants a heretic, I can't even call myself that anymore. <Kodah> So you're going to take the words of a blind priest over what's going on inside you? <Chamolo> But it doesn't matter! It's what they think! What the gods think! What everyone thinks! <Kodah> Are you so sure of what the gods think? <Kodah> Have they come down and told you that they're displeased? <Chamolo> Well, they didn't come to my rescue today...I guess it's a lot to ask...but I have been loyal and faithful! I've done everything they asked, and more! I've given up so much for my religion.. <Chamolo> <Kodah> Did you recieve any mail from Volcananon saying, "i hate you?" <Chamolo> But how can I be in the same place with Jeyer? He's convinced I did it. <Chamolo> Lara seemed to think I did it as well, and you know you've got a problem when your leader hates you. <Kodah> Pardon my french, but Jeyer's a pud. <Chamolo> Heh. <Kodah> And if Lara can't beleive in you after all this, she doesn't deserve to lead. * Chamolo blinks at Kodah. <Chamolo> Kodah...I.. <Chamolo> What if my power is taken away from me? Then what? <Chamolo> I'm useless to you. <Kodah> Have you tried doing any magic? <Chamolo> * Kodah pokes Cham a bit, "There seems to be more to you than magic from where I stand" <Chamolo> Huh? * Chamolo blinks. <Kodah> If you've lost your magic, why haven't you faded away? <Chamolo> No, it's not like that Kodah. <Kodah> Then help me out here <Chamolo> See...if a priest gives up his practice, for some reason or another, they just lose their power. No fading. <Chamolo> That's only with Wizards...I beleive. <Chamolo> The same goes if their kicked out.. <Chamolo> Like me... <Kodah> Why don't you try then. Call on whoever gives you your power. If this god of yours is worth anything, you'll still have it * Chamolo nods, a little sullen. "All right..." * Chamolo makes a small cut on his hand and points his staff at it, chanting <Narrator> The wound heals... <Chamolo> O_o <Kodah> See? <Chamolo> H-How? * Chamolo blinks in wonderment. ^_^ * Kodah grabs Cham by both shoulders and looks him in the eye <Kodah> Some people may have lost faith in you, but the gods have not, and they know you didn't destroy that temple. * Chamolo nods. "But the others..." <Kodah> Whatever the reason they have for not telling anyone is thier own <Kodah> Screw the others, if they don't believe you they can go hang * Chamolo nods. "All right..." <Kodah> Now, before we go back to the others, I want to see you smile <Chamolo> I'll...go back...but if the party no longer trusts me... <Chamolo> Smile? I can't smile at a time like this! <Kodah> You wouldn't want Baine to see you sad now would you? * Chamolo blinks. "No...No...I wouldn't." * Chamolo smiles weakly. <Kodah> There, see? You can do it * Chamolo nods. <Kodah> Shall we? ^_^ <Chamolo> Sure :) <Kodah> Great ^_^ * Kodah escorts Chammy back to the Shining Force <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== * Baine is in the shower...again... :P singing....again.. :P <Chamolo> She sure showers a lot. <Kodah> Its a phase I think <Baine> o/~ Don't leave me with scars that no one can heal... o/~ * Yogurt yawns... She just likes the massaging shower head... :P <Chamolo> Oh... * Chamolo plops down on the bed. <Kodah> Try not to be overly concerned Cham, it'll all work out * Baine stumbles out of the bathroom, towel around her but eyes closed.. <Baine> o/~ Just don't leave me wounded! o/~ * Jeyer walks in the room.. <Kodah> Besides, if someone went to all this trouble to frame you, that says something of how important you are to us * Baine hears Jeyer and opens her eyes :P * Baine notices Chamolo! <Kodah> ....well. Look who's here. * Baine sorta run hops and ends up hugging Chamolo! <Chamolo> Hey Baine. <Chamolo> Urk! ^_^ * Jeyer glares at Kodah... Back off, ok? <Baine> You had me worried sick ^_^ <Chamolo> Sorry...I had to clear my know.. * Kodah glares back at Jeyer but says nothing * Baine nods and smiles reassuringly at Chamolo. <Baine> Glad you came back.. * Jeyer walks over to pick up his stuff... <Chamolo> Yeah...I guess so. * Baine blinks and notices Jeyer.. "Uhm...leaving..?" * Chamolo picks at his robe. "But for personal reasons, I don't feel I should wear this till I've proven myself...somehow." <Jeyer> What do you think?! *points to Kodah* Bagel boy won't make me staying easy! * Kodah doesn't even look at Jeyer * Baine offers Chamolo a shirt.. "Here...slip this on if you need to be comfortable.." * Baine eyes Jeyer.. "He's just cranky. PMS." ^_^ <Chamolo> No, I got new clothes. * Baine grins at Kodah. <Chamolo> Don't worry. * Baine smiles and ruffles Cham's hair. ^_^ <Baine> Things will work out, me... * Jeyer shakes his head and walks out... Oh... BTW Kodah... Yer sister? The best fuck I've had in a while... <Baine> O_o * Chamolo smiles... <Chamolo> O_o * Baine falls over <Baine> SAY WHAT?!? * Kodah hunches his shoulder and snarls * Chamolo sighs. <Kodah> Get.......out....... * Baine gapes * Baine picks her jaw up off the ground.. O_o <Chamolo> This was stupid.. Why did I come back? <Baine> No..Chamolo.. <Baine> Don't.. * Baine latches on to Cham's arm. * Jeyer steps out of the room... * Chamolo shakes his head. <Baine> I swear...if you leave me too..I will kill everyone.. <Chamolo> Baine! * Kodah seethes with barely supressed rage * Chamolo blink blinks. * Baine falters. "Kodah is a" * Baine lets Chamolo go and grins meekly.. :P <Chamolo> I wonder what my father's gonna say...? * Kodah starts counting backwards from 100 <Baine> Your father should love you for who you are...not what you do.. <Chamolo> It's more than that, Baine, a lot more than that... * Lara packs up her gear, getting ready to leave, not saying a word... * Chamolo curls up in a bed <Chamolo> I just want to die...argh.... * Baine growls at Lara.. * Chamolo puts a pillow over his head. * Baine sighs and strokes Cham's back. "Don't say that. Damnit. This is so fucked." :P <Chamolo> *mumble* <Baine> A-... <Lara> We have to leave... We only have a few hours left before we're forced out of town... * Baine mumbles... <Baine> Yeah yeah, Lara.. * Kodah finishes his backwards count * Chamolo gets up slowly. "Okay. Fine." * Baine chews on her bottom lip... <Chamolo> Least they didn't execute me...I was almost expecting them to. <Baine> o/~ Thank gods my thoughts are drifting through the air... o/~ * Baine pokes Cham lightly in the shoulder. "I wouldn't have let them." * Lara shrugs and walks out... I'll be waiting at the gates... <Chamolo> And Lara hates me...this is going to be a long trip <Kodah> ..... * Chamolo sighs and walks out the door. * Darton is by the gates again already... waiting for everyone else <Baine> Lara can go suck a cow's t-.. :P * Baine shrugs and drags Kodah along with her this time :P <Lara> Darton... Nice seeing you here... <Kodah> Is this what we're fighting to protect? <Kodah> If so I'd rather not * Darton shrugs * Chamolo sulks to the gate, meeting the others. * Kiwi and Yogurt arrive... * Lara counts heads... Ok... We're all here.... No.. Wait... Where's FlameStrike? * Baine narrows her eyes. <Baine> *mutters something* <Kodah> No idea * Chamolo leans against a wall. <Darton> why would I know? * Baine eyes Chamolo and ponders joining him.. :P * Baine decides that'd put her across as being too clingy.. :P * Chamolo looks like he wants to be left alone... * Lara shrugs... Dammit... Well we can't wait for him forever... <Baine> <<Same thing.. :P>> <Narrator> Lara: Let's go... <Baine> So lets go. Leave him here. <Chamolo> Yes...let's go.. * Lara walks over to Cham... And BTW... I know you didn't do it... I promise we'll straighten this out... ^_^ * Chamolo blinks. O_o * Baine grins a little. <Chamolo> Th-thank you... <Baine> Told ya so, muffin. ;) * Chamolo smiles. * Kodah smiles at that * Baine walks out.. ^_^ * Chamolo walks out, a little straighter * Chamolo then stops <Chamolo> Muffin? <Kodah> Now that's more like it :P * Chamolo shakes his head "Nah, she couldn't have called me that..." * Lara looks at the Shining Force, smiles to herself and follows them out of town... * Baine comes back, grabs Cham by the arm and drags him! <Baine> Hah hah! ;) <Narrator> ==== Session end! =====
