<Narrator> ===== SESSION START ===== <Narrator> The bolt of lightning struck right outside the Inn, shaking its very foundations... The Shining Force are about to leave to investigate... * Lara rushes out of the inn. * Baine follows, pale * Chamolo follows Lara. "Where did the thunder strike?" * Indigo wakes up, rubs her eyes, and groggily heads outside to see what interrupted her beauty sleep. <Baine> Probably on Jeyer.. * Baine mumbles.. <Flamestrike> I feel a dark presence.... maybe this is the night that the lord of Dragons has chosen to have me join him... But if I die, i will die protecting my friends... <Lara> let's find him. * Vankarin follows, looking dazed. <Baine> Yes, lets.. * Lara looks for Jeyer. * Baine murmurs and gets a cold look. * Flamestrike jumps outta the window and lands with perfect grace <Narrator> Many of the townspeople surround a patch of land that is smoking... <Indigo> I think he's on the path to redemption, this is probaly something else, maybe just a normal storm. * Baine pushes them away * Baine kneels by the land.. <Lara> I don't think so, Indigo. * Chamolo looks at the patch of blackened dirt... <Baine> ... * Lara looks at the smoking land. <Erin> Hmm... * Baine growls lowly.. * Flamestrike looks too <Lara> something evil's around...I can feel it. * Indigo looks at it. <Narrator> All that is left on the charred earth, is Jeyer's mask... Torn and burnt... <Chamolo> I agree...but what? <Baine> Grrrrrrrrr... <Chamolo> ...Oh dear... <Indigo> How odd. <Lara> Oh great. * Baine draws AmeShi. * Baine faces the party.. <Chamolo> That was Jeyer...I fear.... <Chamolo> ! <Vankarin> Darksol did this... <Indigo> I'll talk to the elemental of the the morning *Yawn*. * Baine growls. <Flamestrike> Uhmmm.... i think Baine's pretty pissed... <Lara> looks like Darksol strikes again. This obviously has to be his doing. <Baine> Darksol... <Chamolo> I can understand why...*Shuts up* <Baine> Darksol.....he....Jeyer...I... * Vankarin walks over to Baine and puts a hand on her shoulder... I'm sorry, Baine.. <Chamolo> Baine... <Lara> I think Baine's seriously pissed. * Chamolo puts his hand on her other shoulder. <Indigo> Don't worry. I'm sure destiny has a plan for him. * Indigo yawns tiredly. * Baine squeezes her eyes shut and drops AmeShi... * Vankarin moves away slowly.. <Indigo> Well, I suppose we should do something. * Chamolo follows Vankarin's lead... <Lara> let's leave her be for a while. I think she needs to be alone. <Chamolo> I agree... * Chamolo looks concerened, though. * Baine just stands there, eyes closed and fists clenching * Indigo nods and moves away, swaying. * Lara walks back to the room, concerned about Baine, but leaving her to her mourning. <Narrator> ===== Cut scene! ===== <Narrator> Darksol, not too far away from the scene, is with troops and seems to be looking frantically for something... Or someone... <Darksol> Where did he go??? *growls* * Darksol sends 2 pegasus knights up north... <Darksol> He better run... Because I will kill him with my bare hands.. <Narrator> two orks come back, running towards Darksol... <Ork> Darksol! We've picked up his trace... He's headed towards Roft! * Darksol stares at the ork for a minute, not saying a word... Then, commands his troops towards Roft! <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== <Indigo> I think we should go night-night and worry about it *yawn* in the morning. <Lara> I agree. We can all use a bit of a rest. * Chamolo looks sad and stares out the window. * Flamestrike nears Erin. * Lara , with all that's happened, can't help but think of Guardiana. <Indigo> I think that lightning was wrong or evil somehow. * Erin looks up. * <Chamolo> It was, Indigo... <Lara> I could feel it too, Indigo. <Lara> what a mission.... <Indigo> Hmmmmmmm.....*yawn* Well, the elemental of the air has much to answer to me for. <Vankarin> Let's try to rest, people... We have to head out early tomorrow... <Chamolo> Miss Indigo...I think Darksol was the one who did this...not the Elemental of Air... * Indigo blinks. <Erin> Don't mind her... she thinks magic is responsible for everything... <Lara> yes...I could feel it too. His presence hearby. <Chamolo> Oh...All right.... <Indigo> Oh. I thought that *yawn* DarkSol commanded evil, not the air. * Chamolo walks slowly back to his plush chair. <Indigo> Erin: Remember I did contact the divine, so I'm not crazy. <Lara> you got a recording, Indigo. <Flamestrike> What's a "recording" anyway? <Erin> There's a balance, yes... but you look at it so one- sidedly... <Indigo> Yes, I'd like to know that too. <Lara> beat me...but it sounded good at the time. :P * Chamolo just listens to everyone prattle. ^_^ * Indigo sways. <Indigo> Well, I'll try again tommorrow, this time with Mitula. <Narrator> The Shining force suddenly hears a scream from outside the inn... <Chamolo> ! * Flamestrike flies outta the window <Chamolo> Not MORE problems.. * Erin races out the door. * <Lara> What the hell? * Chamolo grabs his staff and flies outta the room in a mad dash. <Indigo> Huh? Not twice in one night, I have to sleep... * Lara rushes out again. * Indigo twirls and follws the others. <Lara> no rest for the weary. <Chamolo> Still... <Indigo> How are we to save the world without night-night? <Lara> you got me, Indigo... <Narrator> Baine is standing next to a dead body, her hands all bloody... <Chamolo> Baine?! * Flamestrike flies near the racing Erin * Baine blinks at the blood on her hands.. <Lara> Baine? What happened? <Erin> You okay? * Indigo peers at Baine. <Chamolo> Miss Baine...please don't tell me... <Chamolo> You did this? <Baine> I....he.. <Indigo> Oh, is he sleeping? * Flamestrike .oO Uhmmm... i think this means trouble... * Indigo totters forward. * Chamolo blinks at Indigo's complete stupidity. * Flamestrike nears Baine * Baine chews on her bottom lip and kneels by the body, not appearing to have heard the others... <Flamestrike> Did you do this? <Baine> such a waste.. <Chamolo> Did you do this, Miss Baine? * Baine wipes her hands on the clothes.. * Lara looks at the corpse. <Baine> Oh....hi, guys.. <Indigo> Well, maybe it'll go away after night-night. *yawn* * Baine smiles thinly up at the group <Chamolo> Baine.... <Erin> What happened? <Lara> What happened, Baine? <Indigo> So what did happen anyways? <Flamestrike> Uhmm.... let's see... There's a dead body there. You've your hands stained with blood. All omens are against you. Now tell me, did you kill this man? <Baine> I heard the scream and came to see...he...the blood...tried to stop... * Baine looks at her hands again <Vankarin> FlameStrike's right... It all points to you... * Indigo nods. * Baine sighs deeply. <Lara> this does not look good. : * Chamolo blinks. "Did you Miss Baine...?" <Flamestrike> If she says that he did NOT do this, i believe her. <Indigo> Well, it'll take care of itself. Let's go to sleep and I'll have Dao bury this person in the morning. * Chamolo looks sad, almost a bit let down. * Indigo shrugs dismissively. <Flamestrike> Now there's the problem... WHO did this? <Lara> I'll believe her too, but look at all the evidence. <Narrator> A crowd starts to build and moves towards the Shining Force... * Indigo looks up. * Baine notices the crowd.. * Flamestrike examines the corpse to see the source of the blood. <Indigo> Hello noble people of Yeel. Your heroes and heroines are busy at present, please return later. <Baine> Wee...people coming to visit.. * Indigo waves tiredly. <Villager> Oh my god! Someone killed the elder's son!! * Erin considers kicking Indigo... * <Lara> The Elder's son? * Indigo blinks. * Baine chews her bottom lip.. * Chamolo stares at Indigo. "Quiet." <Narrator> The people rush over to the scene! <Flamestrike> Please remain calm. We're presently trying to know WHO did it. <Indigo> Well, time to bury him I guess or whatever, time to summon Dao. <Flamestrike> No * Baine still has some blood on her hands.. <Erin> Where is the Elder? * Indigo begins to summons Dao to bury the body. <Erin> Summon anything Indigo and I'll feed you an arrow! <Villager> THAT NINJA WOMAN KILLED THE ELDER'S SON! * Chamolo claps his hands in prayer for the departed soul. <Indigo> Dao, Elemental of the Earth, return this man to your stony embrace. * Baine flinches.. * Indigo slumps over. <Flamestrike> Uhmmm... I don't think so <Erin> Where's this elder? * Lara slowly shakes her head..."This doesn't look good at all." <Flamestrike> Baine, please unsheath your AmeShi <Narrator> The mob's getting wrestless... <Baine> I.. <Baine> AmeShi.. * Erin is tired, and her patience is beginning to run out... * * Baine looks by the body.. <Baine> uhm.. <Narrator> the elder suddenly walks through the crowd to his son... * Chamolo stops praying, and realises the situation. "Oh drat..." <Flamestrike> Wait. The wounds are DEFINITELY made by a Katana... but not by AmeShi... <Baine> AmeShi is over by the body...uhm.. <Indigo> Well, okay Dao, bury the body. I would be elaborate but I'm so very tired. <Lara> if it's made by a Katana but not AmeShi....then, who did it? <Elder> No... * Indigo gestures to the body. <Flamestrike> I don't know... but SOMEONE will pay for this * The elder kneels next to his dead son... <Erin> You will disperse the summons, Indigo. Now. * Baine is pale and is starting to shake <Elder> Do not burry him here.. <Lara> hmmm..... <Indigo> Too late, he's on the material plane and I don't know how to send elementals back once they're here. * The elder gets up and stares at the Shining Force... <Chamolo> Then please send him back, Miss Indigo. You can do that. * Indigo is sounding half-sleep. <Flamestrike> Simply tell him to buzz off <Chamolo> If you can summon gods, you can send him back. <Elder> I want your group out of here.. NOW.. * Chamolo rolls his eyes, though ^_^ <Indigo> We saved your people. * Baine looks down.. <Chamolo> Indigo...let's go <Baine> I'll guys stay.. * Erin snaps. * Well next time think before you act! You don't bury someone late at night in the middle of a bloody town. * Indigo sways tiredly. * Chamolo pulls Indigo along, muttering sadly. <Chamolo> No, Miss Baine. Let the elder grieve for his son. Let him be alone. <Elder> All of you... Out of Yeel THIS MINUTE! <Indigo> I wouldn't, Dao would. He's the elemental of the earth and.... * Indigo turns to Dao. <Narrator> The mob of people shout their approval! <Indigo> Didn't I give you an order? * Chamolo tugs Indigo along. * Baine murmurs... * Lara starts to walk out of town. * Baine picks up AmeShi and gently sheathes it.. * Baine follows the group.. <Narrator> Dao dissapears back into the earth... <Erin> Fine... let's go... I'm tired and I don't feel like fighting... they're innocent... it'll be better if we go... * Indigo looks upset. <Indigo> Hey! How DARE he disappear on me! I am the sorceress, you have to do what I say Dao! * Flamestrike begins to breath heavily. * Chamolo sighs sadly. * Indigo collapses back against Chamolo. * Baine stays a bit beind the group, looking at the ground. <Narrator> A group of men carry the body over to the morgue, with the Elder at his side... The other villagers see to it that the Shining force leaves the village... <Indigo> Well, I'll talk to him about that later. Dao is so efficent at burying things... <Lara> oh well...could be worse. <Lara> at least we don't have the Cypress army after us. <Flamestrike> Shining force... stop... me... * Chamolo let's go of Indigo...hoping she's calmed down. <Indigo> I don't get it. Elementals don't turn on those who summon them, and I summoned Dao. He is supposed to be mine to command... <Erin> ? * Baine hauls out the burnt remains of Jeyer's mask and fingers it gently.. <Erin> What is it, Strike? * Flamestrike clutches his head with his talons <Chamolo> Flamestrike? <Narrator> the Shining Force heads out of Yeel... They head towards the closest city to them... Roft... <Lara> What is it, FlameStrike? <Indigo> Huh? * Flamestrike yells <Chamolo> Flamestrike! <Indigo> What....? * Indigo leans against Chamolo. * Chamolo blinks. <Flamestrike> Stop me... i'm raging... again... <Chamolo> Calm Flamestrike... <Lara> raging? This is a first for do you calm a raging dragonman? * Indigo looks up. <Erin> I dunno... <Flamestrike> I don't... know why... it's... happening now *GRAAAHHHH*... <Vankarin> Knock him out... *snickers* * Lara places her left hand to the inside of her right fist. "Sword of my soul,"she exclaims,"APPEAR!" Lara then pulls her hand from her fist as the mystic blade appears in her right hand. <Indigo> Your destiny is to control the beserker rage. You will learn to harness it even as I learned to harness my sorcery. <Chamolo> Why is this happening to him? * Lara baps FlameStrike with the hilt of the Soulsword. <Erin> The last thing I think we want to do is hit... * Flamestrike hardly notices <Indigo> Because it is his destiny. He must learn to channel it. <Erin> ...him. :P * Baine remains silent, not even noticing the group. :P <Lara> I'm open to suggestion here. * Flamestrike 's veins are clearly visible on his skin. * Chamolo still doesn't really know what's going on... <Indigo> Oh, let me.... <Chamolo> Does he do this often? <Lara> beats me. This is a first for me. <Flamestrike> *Grrrrrroowlllllll* I... must... calm... down... * Indigo summons Dao again to drop a big rock on FS's head to knock him out. <Erin> Beyond me... Despite a lifetime with my nose in a book, I still know so little... * Flamestrike takes the rock in his hands before it falls on his head and keeps it in them * Indigo blinks. * Flamestrike slowly, calmly drops it... <Indigo> No no! Let's try this again! <Flamestrike> No! * Indigo orders Dao to drop another rock on FS. <Indigo> Now, stand still! <Chamolo> Breathe in, <Lara> give him another rock...maybe he'll start juggling them. * Flamestrike takes it too... and then drops it with great pain... * Flamestrike appears to calm down a bit * Vankarin groans... Great... This is the Shining Force.. * Flamestrike is still shaking... <Indigo> Okay, Dao, try again and FlameStrike, don't catch it this time! * Baine runs a finger along the material of Jeyer's mask * Chamolo looks really, really....really confused. * Flamestrike dodges it this time <Lara> Indigo, will you get a clue. That is not gonna work/ * Erin paws at the ground... * <Baine> Indigo, shut up you idiotic skyte. Stop that. * Flamestrike 's facial expression slowly changes back to normal... <Vankarin> Can we move along people???? <Flamestrike> *Hanf* *Hanf* Uhnnn... <Indigo> No FlameStrike, stand still, or I'll have to summon Neptune to hit you with her tidal wave. <Lara> I don't think it necessary, Indigo. Let's get moving. <Erin> Great... send him into a rage again, why don't you? * Baine pulls her mask up and stuffs Jeyer's mask in her tunic. * Chamolo considers knocking Indigo out, for her own health. * Indigo blinks. * Flamestrike blinks <Indigo> Well, night-night. * Lara starts walking again toward Roft. * Indigo falls asleep on Chamolo's shoulder. <Flamestrike> Why did THIS happen NOW? <Baine> Careful you don't become infected, Cham. <Chamolo> Maybe you're upset about Jeyer's death... * Flamestrike starts walking too, apologizing about a hundred times to Erin * Chamolo blinks at Baine. * Baine flashes a small grin at Cham and motions to the ditz on his shoulder. * Erin replies all the while that she certainly didn't need apologizing to. * * Chamolo smiles a bit at Baine. * Lara keeps count of how many times FS apologizes to Erin. "104 times...I think that's enough, Flamestrike." * Indigo snores loudly. * Chamolo blinks. <Baine> Can I kill her, pretty please? <Flamestrike> Uhmmm... sorry... <Chamolo> I wouldn't.. * Chamolo just hefts her over his shoulder and let's her sleep ^_^ <Flamestrike> No, you can't Baine * Baine grumbles. * Vankarin sighs, ignores the Shining force and moves along with Yogurt at his side... * Indigo half-mumbles the spell to summon Neptune. <Chamolo> But let's not wake her up...shall we? <Baine> Yo, old dude and furry rat! Wait up. <Lara> good idea. <Erin> Good plan... I've had too much of her for one day as it is... <Yogurt and Vankarin> You people are all crazy... :P * Lara whispers to Erin. "I've had enough of her for a lifetime." * Erin giggles. * <Indigo> *mumble* Neptune, Elemental of the Water, *mumble mumble* summon you.... <Flamestrike> To Vankarin: Hey wise old gramps, whaddaya think about that? * Chamolo stuffs an old sock in Indigo's mouth. * Baine chuckles <Baine> a sock? * Lara snickers a bit. "Thank you, Chamolo." <Erin> Socks... silly things... ^_^ <Baine> Where did you get that? Or do I need to know? <Flamestrike> Uhmmmm... That was pretty evil... but works well :) * Chamolo shrugs. "Well...I had nothing else..." * Indigo continues the chant around the sock. <Lara> I don't think I WANT to know. <Vankarin> I think you people should move along... Cuz from what my instincts tell me, Darksol awaits us north... <Chamolo> What is so odd about socks? * Baine eyes darken. <Baine> Darksol. <Chamolo> We are moving, Sir Vankarin. * Indigo has a nightmare and starts kicking and thrasing. <Chamolo> OW! * Chamolo gets kicked guess. * Baine growls softly. "Sure you don't want me to put her out of our misery?" <Erin> We could just set her down and leave her to the wolves... * Chamolo gets a pained look, but still hangs on to Indigo * Flamestrike looks at Chamolo and SUFFERS <Flamestrike> OOOOOooowwwwwww... that must HURT! <Baine> Tempting, Erin.. <Baine> Cham, hand her to me. * Lara watches Chamolo's eyes go crossed. "That had to hurt." <Chamolo> Y--yes it did (He sounds like he's 10! O_o) <Baine> or something. ^_^; <Flamestrike> That would not be kind * Yogurt sits on FlameStrike's shoulder and looks around at the crazy people :P * Flamestrike tries to use his healing powers to fix Chamcham's... uhmm, you know * Chamolo mumbles someting about not kicking private areas. <Erin> Toss her over my back... I can carry her... if we want to bring her along... * Chamolo sounds rather breathless. <Baine> Do we? :P <Vankarin> Yes... We do... :P <Lara> put her on Erin's back. We may need her, as annoying as she is. <Flamestrike> No, i can't allow it. I'll carry her myself <Chamolo> O--okay.. * Baine offers Cham a drink of water from her backpack.. :P <Flamestrike> Better, Cham? * Chamolo puts her on Erins back. "Thank you, Miss Erin...I mean it." <Erin> Leave her be, FS... in case she wakes up or soemthing... <Chamolo> Much better. :) <Flamestrike> But you'll be tired... Besides, it's not right that a sorceress is carried by a goddess :) <Narrator> The Shining force now approach the ruins of Galam... * Chamolo can't help to roll his eyes at FS ^_^ * Baine makes gagging noises :P <Erin> Goddess? Ach... Flattery... I hate it... * Lara just rolls her eyes. <Flamestrike> Uhmmm... jump on the back part of your feet... that REALLY helps... * Vankarin groans... Uhm... Let's get through this area quickly.. <Flamestrike> Flattery? ME? * Chamolo looks a little sorry for FS. "No score, my friend. ^_^" <Baine> No, the other dragon with the huge boner... * Baine rolls her eyes <Chamolo> O_o <Flamestrike> I'm not flattering you. I'm somply saying what i think :) <Chamolo> Miss * Chamolo blinks. ^_^ <Flamestrike> Cham, jump with the back part of your feet <Baine> I didn't mean that. I think I'm actually joking. * Vankarin takes a path to try and evade entering Galam... * Chamolo blinks. * Lara follows Vankarin. * Chamolo shakes his head and follows Lara. * Baine hums a old tune, sounding oddly sorrowful for a tough ninja like herself. :P <Indigo> *mumble* No no daddy, I no wanna summon Dao, I wanna make a big flood, like a worldwide flood, and water all the gardens in the world at once.... * Lara kinda hums a slow song to herself. * Flamestrike mutters something about criminal flooders and their connections to Gransealan mafia... * Chamolo kepts quiet, thinking to himself. * Baine slings her arms around Cham and Lara. "So....did I ever tell you guys that you can call me Kara?" <Chamolo> Kara? <Baine> Its my first name, you know. <Lara> didn't. <Indigo> *mumble* I'll make mommy proud. I'll order the the King of the Gods to rid the world of evil. <Baine> Baine is my last name. <Chamolo> I don't beleive you did, Miss...Kara. <Lara> OK,...Kara. * Baine grins, looking oddly happy. ^_- * Indigo is paying half-attention. * Baine grins some more and continues to walk with her arms slinged around Cham and Lara. ^_^ * Chamolo smiles, picking up the pace. "When do you think we'll reach Roft? <Narrator> The Shining force finally exits the vincinity of the Galam ruins... <Lara> . o O(I just hope she's not this way when we get to Guardiana. Those people have been rumored to read minds.) <Baine> Roft....hmm....hopefully soon.. I wouldn't mind some stew.. * Vankarin breathes a sigh of relief... * Indigo rolls over, punching her pillow (the side of FS's head). * Flamestrike hardly notices <Indigo> *mumble* Hard pillow, make softy. * Flamestrike wonders about flying into the air and dropping Indigo from there * Indigo tries to fluff the "pillow". * Flamestrike hardly notices the feeble attempts <Yogurt> From my calculations, we should get to Roft quite soon... I'm sure we can even see the walls from this point... <Indigo> Dao, Elemental of the Earth, fluff my pillow for me... <Chamolo> Wonderful. My feet are beginning to swell.. * Baine chuckles. <Baine> Not used to travelling? * Vankarin pulls out his big, badass sword :P <Chamolo> No...not really.. * Indigo summons Dao without any purpose just to shake things up (like city walls). ^_^ <Flamestrike> Wanna have a seat, Chamolo? * Vankarin glides a whetstone over it while he walks... * Flamestrike extends a arm to Chamolo <Chamolo> No, It's all right. I need to get used to walking. thank you anyway... <Baine> Mmm....when I was in the Clan, we travelled from town to town.. <Indigo> *mumble* Lumpy bed, Dao make soft... <Baine> I don't really remember it.. <Lara> well, I usually walk from town to town. <Flamestrike> Uhmmm... the gramps really loves his big scrap of metal... Human toys... * Lara has already made the soulsword disappear. "No need in keeping that thing around if we're not going to fight." <Vankarin> I take care of my weapon... Can you say the same? :P <Flamestrike> Of course! <Lara> I always do. <Indigo> *mumble* Neptune make wet, drown ground, make soft. <Vankarin> Well then... I wouldn't call it a "toy"... <Flamestrike> I wash my weapon, i sharpen my weapon, i use my weapon. * Chamolo pats his staff... <Narrator> The Shining force can now see Roft clearly... Cuz the gates are right in front of their faces :P * Baine slams into the gate * Baine falls over ^_^; * Indigo rolls over, wedging her foot into FS's eye. <Chamolo> Baine! Loo-...too late -_- <Lara> Kara, you alright? <Baine> Ow...fuck....uh, yeah. * Lara helps Baine up. * Baine nods to Lara <Narrator> The gates are opened for the Shining Force... <Chamolo> Well, we're here! <Lara> you really have to watc were you're going. <Baine> Oh sure. Now they open them. <Indigo> *mumble* Pillow lumpy, Dao shake.... <Flamestrike> "Well... it makes me happy just to think i'm suffering instead of Erin-sama...", Flamestrike thinks loudly... * Indigo summonds Dao to shake things up, her sharp boot still in FlameStrike's eye. <Erin> -sama? * Erin somehow doesn't seem impressed... * <Flamestrike> Uh? * Baine rubs a small cut on her nose. * Flamestrike goes to Erin "Shall i wake her up?" <Chamolo> If she keeps talking about Pillows...I'll... <Erin> You're the one that has her. I'll leave that decision to you. * Chamolo shakes his head. <Narrator> The town bustles with activity... People shopping, kids playing, birds chirping in the sky... <Baine> Don't worry, Cham...she isn't always like this..I think.. * Indigo keeps punching FS's head, mumbling. * Lara can't help but find Indigo's antics a bit hilarious. * Baine raises both eyebrows * Indigo rolls over onto FS's wing. <Baine> How......boring. :P * Chamolo looks around the town. * Kodah staggers about with a particularly large load of wood in his arms, and proceeds to walk right into the Shining Force.

Calm down... <Baine> WHY DO I ALWAYS FALL DOWN?!?! :P * Baine mutters * Baine sheathes the blade.. * Indigo stands up, narrowing her eyes as she summons Neptune. <Erin> Such a bumbling group we are...

So indigo can't break his wing <Erin> Fine. <Erin> I've had enough... <Flamestrike> I can feel the changes in your lifeforce.

Have we ever met? <Flamestrike> This is the fear of the things that you do not know... <Kodah> Huh? Um...I don't think so * Chamolo wonders where his sock went... <Flamestrike> Or of the things that are large, red and tough... <Vankarin> Hmm... Your face seems familiar... * Kodah inches away from FS * Flamestrike nears Kodah <Kodah> I'm sorry, but I haven't seen any of you before ^^;; <Chamolo> ...great, I lost my favorite sock.... <Flamestrike> Why do you back away?

We could even make some money outta that <Chamolo> Slave owners? That's too cruel, even for her! <Baine> True.. <Baine> Back in the Clan, slavers were a common thing.. <Flamestrike> I'm joking, of course... * Baine mutters a little * Vankarin enters and moves to the counter... <Chamolo> Maybe we should invest in a sleeping potion. When she gets in the evil mode, we sprinke some on her. She falls asleep. Problem solved. * Kodah is talking to the innkeeper, "Here ya go, four chords of firewood like you asked" * Lara walks into the inn. * Vankarin blinks. * Baine mutters. "If he bangs into me and knockes me over, I will scream." <Flamestrike> Oh! Kodah! Come here, i have to talk to you a while.... <Vankarin> Uh... Look who's here... :P * Kodah sees the Shining Force and his face looses a bit of color <Kodah> Ei.... <Chamolo> Listen, why are you so afraid of us? <Baine> Yeah. Is it our good looks or what? <Kodah> Um....afraid? * Indigo moans and gets up groggily. <Flamestrike> Ok, Kodah. It's obvious you are scared of us. Now tell me WHY. <Lara> seem afraid of us for some reason. <Chamolo> seem to be terrifed of us.. <Indigo> Hmmmm....? What happened, where am I? <Kodah> <Baine> *mutter* Not that I can blame you with that little skyte.. <Vankarin> Uh... Guys? She's awake! <Flamestrike> You broke my wing falling and a fight erupted... * Indigo looks at Kodah and twirls to him. <Kodah> Ulp! <Baine> oh gods <Indigo> Hi! I'm Indigo Mysteria, a sorceress! Who are you? <Chamolo> Twirling? She's in her good mode again. <Flamestrike> I know. You recognize that from HOW she wakes up... <Chamolo> -_- Someone shoot me... <Kodah> I..I'm...uh.....K....Kodah ^^;; * Indigo spins in front to trap Kodah between her and a wall. <Lara> oh by Mitula herself...she changes personaliies more often than Clinton changes girlfriends. * Baine dramatically leans her face in Cham's shoulder. "Take me with you, good sir!" * Chamolo chuckles at Baine. * Flamestrike nears Indigo and puts a restraining hand/claw on Kodah * Baine grins * Kodah bigseats and looks for an escape route <Indigo> Now....I was going to do something today...let me think.... <Indigo> Oh that's right! Summon Mitula! <Flamestrike> Uhmmm... ask them. I'm pretty DANGEROUS when i'm angry. Don't make me angry and tell me *NOW* why you are scared of them. * Indigo twirls and goes into her summoning trance, the silver-blue energy travelling up and down her body. <Kodah> I...uh....that is * Flamestrike growls * Chamolo watches Indigo make a fool of herself...again. * Yogurt stares at Indigo... <Baine> *sigh* Maybe she needs a nice kick in the head? <Baine> Please? * Kodah ulps again as FS growls * Baine wiggles her foot * Indigo concentrates, speaking slowly in an ancient language and she summons the energy to summon Mitula. * Yogurt turns to the Shining Force... Is she dumb or what? :P <Flamestrike> I-SAID-NOW! <Lara> Kara, I wouldn't suggest it. <Indigo> Mitula, goddess of healing, I command you to appear... <Baine> Bah.... * Kodah's eyes roll back and he passes out <Chamolo> AHEM. Anyway...back to the orginal question...why are you so afraid...oh dear... <Vankarin> Will you people leave this poor boy alone?! * Baine blinks at Kodah O_o * Chamolo looks at Kodah.. "Hello..." <Baine> Woogh. * Chamolo begins to chant a healing spell. <Flamestrike> Uhmm... i didn't mean to scare him to THIS point... * Indigo is too busy summoning to notice, not a normal summons either. This one would have dire reprecussions if interrupted. <Chamolo> I'll just heal him, then we'll go. <Baine> Yeah. * Chamolo casts cure on Kodah. * Kodah blinks a few times and comes around <Lara> we may just have to set up camp outsie town. <Flamestrike> However, i think someone spread some rumor in this town... * Vankarin shakes his head and pays for a room... <Kodah> Uh? Whazzit? * Baine glances at her hands. "Don't want anything to happen like last time." <Chamolo> Sorry about that. If you want us to leave, we will. Sorry about this. <Flamestrike> Something like "The shining force is a band of assassins" <Flamestrike> Sorry, Kodah... <Chamolo> Hm...that's a fast rumor... * Kodah looks up at FS with a wide eyed look, "Um...its...its okay. Really * Indigo gathers more energy, speaking now in her old tongue. <Baine> Ahem..the ditz is doing something.. * Baine nods her head towards Indigo <Kodah> Um... <Flamestrike> Please, will you tell me why are you scared of them? I can understand you're scared of me, but why are you scared of them? <Chamolo> Let's see if she gets another 'answering machine' <Lara> leave her be....maybe she'll get another recording. * Baine chuckles.. <Indigo> Mitula, I command you to appear....NOW! <Kodah> Well, we usually don't see strangers walk into town and start trying to kill one another....this is a quiet place ya know.... * A voice starts talking... "The Goddess Mitula is dead... Get a clue, ditz!" :P * Indigo focuses the silver-blue energy into a beam then fires it towards the skies, forgetting about the roof in the way.... <Flamestrike> Pike it, Berk! If the gods really were alive and cared, do you REALLY think you would be here??? <Kodah> O_O <Kodah> Oh geeze..... <Baine> Well..uhm...Kodah...we aren't bad people.. <Baine> well <Baine> I am.. * Chamolo blinks. " really....really...need some lessons...on discipline...." <Baine> but...they aren't. :P * The Innkeeper protests! <Lara> you're not a bad person, Baine. <Baine> and Indigo is a ditz * Kodah backs away from the group, "Who are you people?" O_O <Baine> as you can see :P <Chamolo>'re not bad.. <Flamestrike> We are the SHINING FORCE, ijit <Innkeeper> WHO'S GONNA PAY FOR THIS??? <Kodah> The what? <Baine> FS, and you wonder why people are afraid of you? Eesh. :P * Chamolo looks pained. <Lara> the roof? <Chamolo> I wonder if I still have money.... * Indigo continues the spell unto completion, firing the beam into the air and blasting through the roof, then stops and slumps. <Flamestrike> I wonder why people are afraid of YOU people. * Baine squeezes Cham's shoulder again and eyes the Innkeeper. <Innkeeper> Yes! The bloody roof!! <Flamestrike> I can understand why people are scared of ME * Chamolo hmms... <Baine> How about we sell Indigo's body? <Flamestrike> To innkeeper: Nobody * Baine grins fiendishly * Chamolo pulls off a ring on his finger. It's gold. "Will this pay for it?" <Indigo> Hmmm....I wonder what is wrong. Well, it gets easier each time I do it and I think I'm getting better, took much less time. * Lara walks over to Indigo. "Next time you try something like that, DO IT OUTSIDE, DAMMIT!" <Baine> O_o * Flamestrike stops Chamolo. "NO!" <Chamolo> Huh? * Chamolo blinks. <Flamestrike> How much do you want, Landlord? <Innkeeper> Oh you'll pay to fix that roof all right... * Kodah looks confused * Indigo blinks. <Innkeeper> 300 GP... <Indigo> Oh, no problem. Dao'll fix it. <Flamestrike> Put that ring back on your finger * Indigo summons Dao to fix the roof. <Baine> Cham, put that back on...eesh...keep looks nice :P <Chamolo> But... * Chamolo sighs, and slips it back on. <Flamestrike> 200 and not a copper more! <Lara> .oO(Damn little sorceress is more trouble than she's worth.) * Baine flashes a apologetic smile at Cham and leans against a wall. * Yogurt looks at the pile of wood, then digs his face in his pouch... <Indigo> Don't worry, Dao will fix the roof for free. * Yogurt pulls out a ring, slips it on and uses its effect... * Flamestrike takes INDIGO's coins and gives 300 of them to the innkeeper * Chamolo leans against a wall, watching the little fuzzball. * Yogurt suddenly becomes incredibly fast! He takes the wood and runs to the roof. <Kodah> Wha-ha O_O <Kodah> Hey! <Flamestrike> Here. You damage the roof, you PAY for the roof... * Indigo shrugs. <Chamolo> Wait Flamestrike.. * Chamolo points to Yogurt. <Indigo> Is this supposed to mean something in some way? <Lara> that little furball is up to something up there. <Narrator> After about 2 minutes, the hole in the roof is patched and fixed. <Chamolo> Ah...whew... <Chamolo> Thank you very much, Yogurt! * Flamestrike snickers "Little Yogurt is useful :)" <Lara> quick little fuzzball. <Kodah> I spent all morning chopping that.... <Baine> Yes, Indigo. It means you are a di-...ah hell, why do I bother being nice and sweet and kind? Eesh. <Flamestrike> Good boy, Yogurt <Chamolo> Sorry Kodah.... * Yogurt runs back in quickly and pulls off the ring, then slips it back in his pouch. * Chamolo gives him an apologetic look. <Indigo> Hmmmm, I'm going to have a long talk with that Earth Elemental. How DARE he not respond to ME?! <Flamestrike> Kodah, i'll bring down a tree or two in 5 minutes if you want * Yogurt takes a bow... Ring wielder, at your service... ^_^ <Kodah> UM...that's okay, really!
