<Narrator> ===== SESSION START ===== <Narrator> The night settles in nicely... The moon shines faintly over the city, casting the city in an eerie glow... <Narrator> A few odd people stay awake, their thoughts keeping them from sleep... * Tiernan struggles outside to the balcony, almost looking as if he's limping. He plops down and looks up at the moon. * Tiernan sighs softly to himself. <Narrator> The moon shines a big fake smile, as if it's laughing at Tyr... * Tiernan blinks. <Tiernan> ....Even the moon thinks I'm strange.... <Tiernan> Everyone hates me so...why...? What did I do....? * Tiernan buries his head into his lap. * Zoie walks in * Zoie walks out in to the balcony <Tiernan> Who's there...? * Tiernan looks up. <Tiernan> Oh....hello Zoie... <Zoie> hello * Tiernan 's voice sounds strained for some strange reason or another. <Tiernan> Did you come here to laugh too...? <Zoie> why would I be laughing? <Tiernan> ...because....because I'm... <Tiernan> I'm strange.....odd... <Tiernan> People hate me because I am not like them... <Zoie> so? that doesn't give me the right to laugh at you <Tiernan> Really? I thought...I thought everyone hated me because of my wings... <Tiernan> Everyone in town whispered about me...or shrank away from me...I didn't even do anything... <Zoie> I don't know you that well, why would I hate you becuase you didn't look as I do? <Tiernan> I don't know...that's what I want to know... <Tiernan> Even Sasha ran off.... <Tiernan> I thought she was my..."friend..." <Zoie> ahhhhh <Tiernan> I don't know what to do....ugh... * Tiernan clutches his stomach. <Zoie> just be yourself, people can't fault you for that, and if they laugh without getting to know you, it's their loss <Tiernan> ....Really? <Zoie> really <Tiernan> But....why do they... <Tiernan> Maybe my wings are just evil.... <Zoie> maybe they are afraid of something different or maybe they are jealous <Tiernan> Jealous? What is...that? <Zoie> people laugh for the oddest reasons, usually to hide other emotions <Zoie> Jealous is, envious.. they wish they had them <Tiernan> They shouldn' just leave you.... * Tiernan thinks of the word Sasha used. "Heartbroken....yes..." * Kodah looms in the doorway leading to the balcony, listening * Tiernan looks behind him. "Kodah..." * Tiernan winces in pain. * Kodah nods to Tiernan as he's noticed <Tiernan> Why don't you...come out here... * Tiernan says this very innocently. * Kodah steps into the moonlight, his face betraying the bitterness he feels <Tiernan> Why do you look like that...? <Tiernan> Is something wrong? * Zoie looks at Kodah * Kodah shrugs, "Nothing of any weight really" <Tiernan> But.... <Tiernan> You look so... * Tiernan blinks, trying to think of the emotion. <Tiernan> I don't just don't look right... <Kodah> Unhappy is the word I think you're looking for <Tiernan> Unhappy? Yes...why do you look so unhappy? * Kodah shrugs again, "Life is sometimes harsh, I'm learing to deal with that" * Zoie asks Kodah why he is unhappy <Tiernan> Yes...I guess it is... * Tiernan stands up. "Is there...anything...." * Tiernan falters. <Kodah> Why am I unhappy? Well...I've had a lot taken from me <Tiernan> Taken? Why would anyone take anything from you? :/ <Tiernan> You seem like a nice person... <Kodah> There are a lot of reasons. Unfortunately I don't know any of them <Tiernan> There are a lot of things I don't know e... * Tiernan suddenly doubles up, and collapses! O_o <Kodah> You okay there? * Tiernan 's body shimmers for a moment, then his wings wink back into existance. * Kodah watches * Tiernan moans and sits up. <Tiernan> Oh no.... <Tiernan> I couldn't hold it... <Tiernan> Now you'll laugh at me too! <Kodah> Couldn't hold what? <Tiernan> My wings... <Kodah> Why are you trying to hide them? <Tiernan> Because they're evil. That's why people hate me... <Tiernan> And laugh... <Kodah> shouldn't worry about what other people think of you <Kodah> You should be more worried about how you feel about yoursef <Tiernan> That's what Zoie said.... * Tiernan stops to think. <Tiernan> I didn't know if it was really true... <Tiernan> Thank you, Kodah... <Kodah> No biggie really. In some ways I understand where you're coming from <Tiernan> Really? Like what? <Kodah> I've had my share of people who feared me <Kodah> Just because I was different <Tiernan> Why do they do this...? They don't even know me...but they fear me anyway! I didn't want to make them afraid of me! <Kodah> They fear you because they don't know any better...or someone told them to(said with renewed bitterness) <Tiernan> Oh... <Tiernan> Please don't be angry.... <Tiernan> You sound so angry.... <Tiernan> I'll leave you alone, if that's what you want... <Kodah> I'm not angry at you... * Tiernan stands up, flexing his wings a few times. <Narrator> Ehhhehehe... Should I do the cut scene afterwards? ^_^ <Tiernan> But....instead of being angry.... <Kodah> I just...have a lot of stuff hanging over my head <Tiernan> Maybe you should teach the people who don't know any better. * Tiernan thinks about this for a moment, smiles, and walks out. <Kodah> ... <Narrator> ===== Cut scene! ===== <Zoie> I think he's confused and scared <Narrator> The scene shifts to a dark alley... A lonesome man stands under a street light, awaiting something... Or someone... * Jeyer shifts impatiently.. "Where is he..?" * Jeyer sighs and tightens the belt around his waist... <Narrator> Sounds of horse hoofs can be heard in the distance... * Jeyer turns to the sound, seeing a carriage hauled by 2 horses go by... <Jeyer> ... Calm down, Jeyer.. <Narrator> Suddenly, behind Jeyer, a voice makes itself heard, "You summoned me?" * Jeyer leaps and turns around quickly! <Jeyer> !!... Dammit, Gerad.. Don't scare me like that. <Gerad> A thousand pardons, sir Jeyer. Now. What did you want with me? * Jeyer leans on something invisible, but it manages to hold him up. <Jeyer> I propose... An alliance. <Gerad> An... Alliance? For what purpose? <Jeyer> I know you're looking for Kodah. I have... "Issues" with him. And he is now travelling with powerful allies. * Gerad strokes his chin... "Hmm. Then they shall fall for allying themselves with such evil. * Jeyer shakes his head.. "You're stubborn, aren't you. How about this then." * Jeyer stands up and gathers energy in his hands... Suddenly, a small sphere appears between his hands. <Gerad> Impressive... What is it? * Jeyer groans.. "It is a tracking beacon... I tagged Kodah in my last encounter with him." * Gerad suddenly looks excited and reaches out for the sphere... * Jeyer pulls back and dispells the sphere... "Ah ah ah... Now now. You really believe I would give this up that easily?" * Gerad looks irritated. "What do you want of me?" <Jeyer> I... Simply want to journey with you to hunt down Kodah... And to be there when you suck the life out of him.. <Gerad> Such taste for vengeance... I cannot ally myself with such a being. I shall find Kodah on my own terms. Good day, sir Jeyer. * Gerad turns around and walks away... * Jeyer curses and whispers under his breath.. "You'll regret this move, Centaur... Just you wait." * Jeyer casts teleportation and poofs out of existance. <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== <Narrator> The sun once again arises over the horizon... A new day is born... * Tiernan lies curled up in his bed, still sleeping. * Reisha doesn't see the sun, more like the pillow, as she snores away. :) * Kodah is up early, and waits in the lobby for everyone * David leans against his windowsill, staring outside and lost in his thoughts.. * Jess is nowhere near the inn, staying behind Darin at the shrine. * Zoie having fallen asleep on the balcony awakens <Narrator> == Darin returns to full strength. * Tiernan murmers something in his sleep, and cootly extends his wings a couple of times. ^_^ * Tiernan awakens by falling out of bed! O_o <Tiernan> Ah--! *BOOM!* <Kodah> ... <Tiernan> * Reisha blinks several times and the sunbeams shine right in ehr eyes.. "Damn it.. morning.. want sleep more.." <Tiernan> Yes. I think ow was correct. * Tiernan rubs his now sore back and stands up. * Reisha shakes her grogginess off and gets ready... ^^ * Tiernan went to bed in his clothes, therefore, just walks out to the lobby looking for everyone else. <Tiernan> Hello Kodah... <Kodah> Morning <Tiernan> Are we going to get my new clothes soon? * Reisha staggers out of her room, scratching her head and mumbling something abotu coffee.. <Kodah> If you like * Tiernan smiles....right! ^_^ * David continues to just drift in his thoughts, eyes dark.. <Narrator> The innkeeper works on making breakfast in the back. * Tiernan hears something growl. O_o * Tiernan looks down. * Kodah raises an eyebrow at Tyr <Tiernan> I think I'm possessed. My stomach is growling at me... <Kodah> Let me guess, you don't know what that noise means, do you? * Tiernan looks worried. <Tiernan> No! What does that mean? * Zoie walks inside <Kodah> It means you're hungry <Tiernan> That's all? * Jess wanders into the room, hanging onto a fully healed Darin. * Reisha flumps on the door to David's room, falling inside rather ungracefully. ^^ <Reisha> .. I hate mornings.. x_X * David spins and leaps on the person in his room, grabbing his sword from his bed in the same motion and positioning the flaming blade at their throat! <Kodah> That's it, let's see if we can get you some breakfast * Darin looks around, wincing from a slight headache.. <Jess> Morning, people. How are you all doing this morning? * Jess hangs onto Darin for dear life. <Kodah> As well as can be expected * Reisha wakes up! o_O <Tiernan> Okay. * Darin looks down at Jess... "You ok?" * David growls, eyes dark and suddenly realizes just who he's pointing the sword at. * Kodah leads Tyr to the breakfast table * Tiernan follows. ^_^ * Jess smiles. "I am now that you're ok, Darin." <Reisha> It's me Rei..! Calm down there Davey.. ^^; * David erks and tosses the sword back onto the bed... "Uh...uh...morning, Rei....sorry....uhm... I'll be down in a second.." * Darin smiles nervously... * Kodah prods the innkeeper for some breakfast stuff * Reisha nods. ".. and here I thought I was a monster in the morning.." <David> Ah...ha ha...ha. * David clears his throat and packs up his things. * Tiernan sits down, looking at the silverware with a bit of quiet confusement * Reisha flips her hair behind her and walks out. "....I'll talk after I get some cofee..." * Kodah shows Tyr how to properly eat breakfast * David stops and looks at where Rei was, sighing.. "Damnit. Can I do nothing right?" * Jess looks at her robes for a second and then whispers to Darin. "I think they said something last night about shopping today. If I don't get rid of these robes soon, you won't want to see the results of one more battle. These things are pathetic now." * Zoie sits down alone ans sips tea * David suddenly gets really pissed off and puts a hole in the wall with his foot. * Reisha runs downstairs and assulats the nearest employee for a cup. * David ahems and walks downstairs to meet the group. * Tiernan tries to put a bit of egg on the fork like Kodah is doing * Tiernan blinks as the egg falls into his lap. <Tiernan> I don't think I can do this :/ * David mutters.. "Morning everyone." * Jess simply gets a cup of coffee and a danish. "This'll be it for me." * Darin looks at Jess.. "It doesn't look that bad, love.." <Jess> Morning, David. * David slumps into a chair by Tiernan and Kodah. <Narrator> The innkeeper puts a pot of coffee on the counter and backs away slowly.. o_o <Kodah> Keep trying, you'll get it <Darin> Good Morning David.. * Tiernan looks at the innkeeper. * Reisha manages a sly smile to the Innkeeper and takes the cup. ;) <Tiernan> There are a lot of people who don't know any better, aren't there? :/ * David taps his fingers on the desk, looking dark.. <Narrator> The innkeeper sweatdrops and goes back to the kitchen. ^^;; * Kodah nods to Tyr * Reisha sits down by everyone, and single-mindedly drinks. ^^ * Tiernan tries to put the eggs on his fork again. <Jess> she must have really been tired. *Points to Rei.* * Kodah teaches Tyr how to spear eggs with a fork * Zoie continues to sip her tea * Reisha slams the cup down for effect. "Damn right." ^^ <Tiernan> Oh! * Tiernan does so. ^_^ <Tiernan> That's much easier! * David mutters.. <David> I'm going outside. I'll meet you all there. * David stands and walks outside. * Tiernan spears all of his food onto the fork so it's absolutely crammed O_o <Kodah> Um...hold it Tyr <Tiernan> What did I do wrong? * Reisha looks a little better after a few minutes. <Kodah> One thing to remember, never eat anything biger than your mouth <Tiernan> Why? <Kodah> Becuase it can be bad for you * Jess sips at her coffee as she reads an article. <Tiernan> Oh. * Tiernan pushes some of the food off his fork <Tiernan> This okay? <Jess> Hey, Darin, can I ask you a quick question? <Kodah> That's better * Reisha glances at David. "Sory if I kinda startled you there... I'm a mess before my morning cup." ^^ <Tiernan> Okay then.. * Tiernan puts the food in his mouth and chews. ^_^ <Tiernan> This is good! ^_^ * Reisha blinks and realizes he's gone... :/ * Kodah resumes eating quietly * Darin nods at Jess <Tiernan> Thank you Kodah. <Jess> Why did your sword attack you like that, Darin? <Darin> ...... <Kodah> No problem * Darin pales... <Jess> It's been eating away at me all night, just wondering. * Tiernan eats his meal quietly. <Reisha> Say, anybody see where David went? <Jess> outside, Rei. * Zoie starts to scribble in her little book as she sips her tea <Darin> The Blade of Truth can not be wielded against anything that is not evil.. threat or no threat... It holds me to an oath I swore long ago..... * Darin trails off and stares off into space, seemingly lost in thought * Tiernan finishes his meal. <Jess> Oh.... * Reisha winks to Jess, swiping a bagel in her mouth and heading outside. ^^ <Tiernan> That was really good. My stomach feels better now. <Kodah> Excellent <Narrator> Sounds of metal clashing against metal can be heard not far away... * Darin mutters under his breath... "Kalla, where ever you are... I still worry...." * Jess takes Darin's hand in hers. "It's OK. I was just curious. What's wrong?" <Tiernan> my room, there was a big...tub.....what was that? <Jess> O_o <Tiernan> I thought it might have been the place to sleep but I wasn't sure... * Darin blinks.. hearing the noise.. "What's that?" <Kodah> Its a tub. You use it to clean yourself <Tiernan> Oh... <Tiernan> I haven't ...what is that noise? * Jess runs outside. * Darin gets up and follow Jess * Tiernan gets up and follows everyone else. <Kodah> ..? * Zoie gets up and walks outside * Kodah lags behind the others, feeling caution would be a good idea <Narrator> A man can be seen thrown to the floor by another man... It seemed to have hurt alot... * Reisha gets outside, munching on the bagel, and ntoices the sound.. <Tiernan> Hey! Stop that! You're hurting him! :/ <Jess> that's this fight about? <Jess> .oO(Probably a drunken brawl.) <Reisha> Looks like *munch* somebody's got problems. ^^ <Zoie> sad... people resorting to violince to solve a problem * David growls and glares down at the man, rage in his eyes... <David> You bloody idiot. Get outta here. <Narrator> The man on the ground cowers and tries to crawl away! <Tiernan> D...david? <Jess> too true, Zoie..but they're probably drunk. You know how easily drunks get into fights. * David kicks the man hard as he tries to crawl * Reisha blinks and goes up to David... <Narrator> Guards stand at an arm's length from David... * Tiernan looks on in shock. <Narrator> The man yelps! <Zoie> I don't think he's drunk *points at David* * Darin just stares... <Reisha> What the heck's going on.. why're you kicking this guy? <Jess> no joke..what's on his mind? <Kodah> ... * Reisha tries to seperate David and the Man. <Narrator> The man gets up and runs to his training partners... * David glares at the guards... "He was...he was in my way." <Tiernan> Why is... <Jess> No idea, Tyr. <Reisha> And you beat him just for that? Seriously.. <Narrator> The guards clutch the hilt of their swords... "Please move along, or we will be forced to arrest you." <Tiernan> So you hurt people who are in your way? Is that how it works...? * Reisha stands there, hands on her hips. * Kodah raises an eyebrow at David * David twitches and growls at the guards before moving on... "'s just....something..." * Jess grabs David. "Come on....Rei, give me a hand here, OK?" <Reisha> You really got up on the wrong side of bed this morning, didn't you? :/ <Narrator> The guards glare at David before dispersing the crowd that built up... <Tiernan> So it is okay to hurt others....? * Tiernan looks very lost and confused. * Reisha assists Jess in carting David a ways away. ^^ <Narrator> No, Tyr... It's just ok when Narrators hurt their players. :P <Tiernan> Who said that? O_o <Jess> What has gotten into you, David? You just don't go attacking people who don't attack you first. * David blinks and his arms twitch at the girls touches, his reflexes trying to kick in.. "Someone explain to Tiernan whats right and not." <Kodah> I wouldn't copy David's methods if I were you Tyr * Darin shakes his head to clear it... and goes over to where Jess, Rei and David are. * David glances at Jess, his gaze haunted.. "N..nothing." <Tiernan> Why not? Isn't he the leader? <Kodah> Just because he's a leader doesn't mean he's a good role model * Zoie stands to the side * David clears his throat and rolls his shoulders. "Okay. Okay. Lets just go. Wait, where are we going? Whats the plan?" <Tiernan> So he's a bad person? <Tiernan> No..that can't be right... <Kodah> Not necesarily <Jess> but a person can let his emotions get the better of him...which at times is not a very good idea. <Tiernan> Oh...I think I understand... * Reisha looks into David's eyes a minute... "Relax, David... save it for the bad guys.." :P <Tiernan> Can I....get my clothes...please? <Kodah> If you wish <Tiernan> Thank you... * David blinks, his eyes still dark.. "Bad guys...right...okay... yeah...uhm. Sure, Tier." <Tiernan> I'm sorry I'm such a bother to everyone...asking so many questions * Reisha snaps a finger. "Right.. shopping's a good plan." :) <Kodah> Don't worry about it Tyr <Jess> while we're at it, I'm going to find myself a better outfit too. These robes are really becoming a mess. <David> I'll stick to these clothes... <Tiernan> Okay...if you say so. <Narrator> I need more whipped cream undies... Err. *goes back to narrating.* <Tiernan> Who said that?! * David glances at Rei and then rubs his forehead, feeling ill. <Tiernan> I remember where that store was... <Tiernan> But...the man there didn't like my think I should hide them.... <Tiernan> For now... * Reisha puts a hand on his shoulder. "man.. I think you needed that coffee more than me.." * Tiernan closes his eyes and clasps his hands together as if praying. With a faint rustle, his wings burst into a shower of feathers and faerie fire. Then as subtle as a whisper, it all vanishes. <Jess> cool trick, Tyr. <Tiernan> Really? You like it? <Jess> yeah. ^_^ * David untenses at the touch.. " wouldn't have helped... I'm okay." <Tiernan> Thank you. * Tiernan tries to find his way back to the tailor shop <David> Anyway...lead the way, oh Tiernan of the frozen and studly. <Tiernan> Huh? O_o * Jess latches onto Darin. "What do you think, Sir Darin?" <Tiernan> I'm not cold...and my body isn't made of studs. * Reisha giggles... <Narrator> The tailor shop lies two blocks down. * David laughs. "It was a joke." * Darin blushes slightly.. and shrugs... <Tiernan> A...joke? <Jess> you look pretty lost in deep thought, I was just wondering. * Darin is still a little wrapped in his thoughts... <David> Makes you laugh...other people laugh.. <Tiernan> Oh.... <Reisha> Tiernan.. you've still got a lot to learn.. ^^ <Darin> Huh? * Tiernan finds the Tailor Shop ^_^ <Tiernan> Here! * David smiles for the first time today and patpats Tier's head. * Darin looks at Jess.. "I'm sorry..." <Jess> see, you were pretty zoned out. What's up? * Tiernan is pat patted. <Tiernan> Um. * Reisha feels a little better seeing David smile. <Tiernan> ^_^; <David> Let's go shopping, shall we? <Darin> Just thinking about what happened... and.. <Jess> yes, let's. Right, Rei? * David bows and lets Rei go before him. "M'lady." * Tiernan walks into the store. * Jess digs in her pouch. "haven't had a chance to use this in a while. Guardiana express. Never leave home without it." <Tiernan> Hello? Sir? * Reisha nods to Jess and takes the invitation. :) <Reisha> But of course, sir David... ;) * Reisha heads inside.. * David laughs and smiles, following Rei in.. * Jess follows David and Rei in. <Tailor> Can... I help you? <Tiernan> Do you remember me from yesterday? <Tiernan> I asked if you could make me some new clothes... * Jess looks over at Reisha. "Let's see what we can find, eh?" * David leans against the counter, lazily eyeing the styles of clothing he can see.. * The Tailor looks at Tiernan.. "Oh right! Something's different... But.. Anyways. Yes! Let me get your clothes..." <Tiernan> ^_^; Oh. Okay. * Reisha rubs her hands. "Oh yeah.." ^^ * Jess wanders around, looking at all the ladie's fashions. "This is going to be fun." <David> You can find something to show off that beautiful figure of yours, Rei.. ^_- * Darin eyes a few things .. that would look fabulous on Jess.... * Reisha luaghs, posing a little. "Don't you know it!" :) * Jess looks around. "I like this skirt, and this about the shoes. What do you think, Rei?" * The railor returns with a pile of clothes and hands then to Tiernan. "Here you go... There's a changing room to the back there..." * Reisha hunts around for a nice new cape.. <Reisha> I think trash the shoes.. they're last season. :P <Tiernan> Oh! ^_^ <David> last season? ^_- <Tiernan> Thank you...I'll be right back. * The tailor nods. "Can I help any of you?" * Reisha fingers some Silk material.. "Ohh.. now this is my for a hero.." * Tiernan carries his clothes into the dressing room, starts to take off his robe, then remembers the 'no nakedness in plain view' rule and shuts the door. * David tilts his head, watching Rei... * Jess wanders into a fitting room with her outfit to try it on. "Perfect fit. I like this look." Jess digs around and finds a magician's circlet that she had stored away. "This'll look so great with this." * Jess comes out of the fitting room to show off for Darin. <David> You got any black tunics, sir? * Reisha looks to the tailor. "Hey, you have any Robes and capes in this? *points to a deep blue fabric* * Darin blinks at Jess.... and his jaw falls to the floor. <Jess> So, what do you think, Sir Darin? <Tailor> Hmm... Dark shades are in the back there... *points to a rack next to the robes* You should both find what you need there. ^_^ * Tiernan comes out of the dressing room. His robe is now gone. (obviously) He's wearing a cream colored shirt which is loose, black pants, brown boots with a fur trim, and a brown overcoat which has a small gold chain on his right shoulder. He's also wearing a yellow and black scarf. * David nods and heads back there, searching for a new tunic.. * Jess spins slowly for Darin to get a good look at her new look. <Tiernan> does this look <Darin> . o O ( That skirt is so ... SHORT!!! But it shows her off so ... beautifully... wow... ) <Reisha> Gotcha... c'mon, David. <Kodah> Looks good Tyr * Darin babbles at Jess.. before finally getting out a few coherant words.. "You look incredible, Jess..." <Tiernan> Really? ^_^ * Reisha heads to the back, head bobbing up and down at all the styles.. <Tiernan> Let me see something.... * Tiernan closes his eyes and opens his arms wide. Suddenly, a faint glimmer can be seen coming from him as two small, pale red wings materialize on his back. With a faint rustle of feathers, they fuse to his back, and become soild. <Tiernan> Oh! He did add the wingholes. ^_^ * Jess looks at the shoe rack. "These will be the perfect addition." She grabs a pair of red heels and puts them on. <Kodah> Excellent <Tailor> ... Oh! Right... You were the kid with the wings... I Forgot. ^_^ * David hauls out a black tunic, grinning at the thinness but strength of the material.. "Perfect.." <Tiernan> ^_^; That's okay sir. <Jess> Now, there we what do you think, people? * Reisha pulls out a few tunics in blue, tinged with gold at the frills and holds them up to David. "What'cha think? Too guady?" <Narrator> I think you should get yer ass in my trailer right now. :P * Darin looks around for a new cape... "Do you happen do have anything in a dark gold color? Or in red?" <Jess> it'll look perfect on you, Rei. <Tiernan> Who said that!? * David tilts his head. "I think you'd look beautiful even if you were wearing a burlap sack." * David looks at the tunic in his hands and ponders it.. * Tiernan looks himself over in a mirror. <Tailor> Dark gold..? No... I doubt I have that... But.. I do have a shades of red in that *points* rack... <Jess> David, go ahead and get it. I'll put it on my Guardiana Express, OK? * Tiernan then stops and examines himself a little too closely, his eyes far off. <Tiernan> I....I look like this....? * Reisha pushes a hand out lightly at David. "Oh.. knock it off, loverboy!" ;) <David> Okay...lemme put it on... ^^; * Darin nods, thanks the tailor, and heads for the rack. * David grins and winks at Rei before heading to the dressing room... * Jess follows Darin. "Want some help?" * Darin smiles.. "Sure.. " He glances down at his torn tunic and the badly damaged jacket over it. * Tiernan plops on the ground and simply looks at himself, trying to inprint an image of himself in his mind. * Reisha slings the two over her shoulder, and hunts around for the matching cape. * David doesn't take long (only having a tunic, afterall) and wanders out wearing the new tunic thats as dark as the night and it clings to him slightly to show his rather impressive muscles. ;) * Reisha passes by david on ehr way to the fitting rooms, and stops for a second... * David looks down at himself and tries to decide whether or not he likes it. * Reisha smirks. "Now that's one shadow I'll always notice." ;) <Tiernan> How strange.... * Tiernan touches his hair lightly. * David looks up at Rei and blushes, coughing and heading to the counter... * Tiernan sees David in the corner of his vision and stands up. * Reisha winks and heads in to change. * Darin pulls out a deep red tunic... and a matching red jacket, and holds it up.. "What do you think, Jess?" <David> Hey, kiddo....uhm.....whats wrong? * David eyes Tier * Kodah stands by and waits for everyone to finish <Tiernan> ...I never knew what I looked like until now.... <Tiernan> It's so strange...I don't remember... <David> Well you know now...why? <Jess> I think you look very dashing, Sir Darin. <Tiernan> I look...different...the way people treat makes a little more sense now.. * David raises an eyebrow. "Tier, don't live in the past. Create your future. It's like you were reborn've got a gift....use it wisely." * Darin heads for a fitting room, and changes.. returning a few moments later. "You sure this is my color, Jess?" <Tiernan> Really? * Reisha slips on the new duds, and comes out looking a lot more fancy and foxy. :) <Tiernan> You think so...? <Jess> hey, would I lead you wrong? * The tailor pulls out a box from under his counter and dumps it on the floor... A few trinkets and boomerang fall out... <Tiernan> But...there's so much I want to know... * David nods....and then snaps his head towards where Rei is, gawking at her... "O...oh my." * Tiernan blinks and points to the boomerang. "What's that?" <Tailor> Agh... Stupid worn out b-- Err... It's a weapon... It's a boomerang... You throw it and it comes back to you... <Tiernan> A weapon! That's just what I need...I don't have one... * Reisha shakes her head, her blonde hair dancing for a minute.. * Tiernan fingers his staff. "And I don't want to break this..." <Reisha> Like it? * David picks his jaw off the floor and coughs... "Hey...Rei! Looking good! Very good...very very very good...uhm...yeah!" * David nods frantically <Tiernan> Can I have that...boomerang David? <Tiernan> Please? <Jess> Tier, I once heard a wise man say something. It's not what a person looks like on the outside, but what they are like on the inside. that means appearances are't everything, it's the goodness of a person's heaert. * David blinks at Tier.. "Yep...if ya want." <Tailor> ...? You want it? Here... Take it... *hands it to Tiernan* I'm trying to ger rid of all this junk... <Tiernan> Thank you. :) * The tailor shakes his head and picks up the stuff that fell out of the box... * Reisha luaghs and stands proudly.. her old clothes draped over her left hand. * Tiernan smiles and puts the boomerang on a belt loop * David looks back to Rei and eh hehs, blushing. <Jess> and Darin, I think you really look Dashing like that..honestly. * Reisha walks slowly up to others... * The tailor grabs the box and dumps it outside... <Tiernan> Hey! O_o <Tiernan> There might be other things in there... <Reisha> Now I could get to like this... * Tiernan runs outside! <Jess> lookin pretty hot there, Rei. <Tailor> Trust me kid, there a-- Ahh the hell with this. :P * Tiernan stoops down and searches through all the 'junk' the old man threw out * David blinks out of his trance and looks at the floor. * Darin blushes at Jess... "But, I could never outshine you, m'lady." * Jess smiles at Darin. * Reisha goes up to David, and lifts his head up with a finger. "You sure you're ok today?" <Narrator> == Tiernan digs out a bright red stone, a small statuette and a ring... Everything else seems useless. <Tiernan> I found something! * Kodah looks over Tyr's shoulder <Tiernan> What are these things, Kodah? * Jess latches onto Darin's arm. <Kodah> Hmm... * Tiernan holds them up so Kodah can see. * David stares into Rei's eyes, letting her see the pain there for a second and then nods. "I'm fine... you look great....really really great..." * Kodah looks over the bits * Darin looks down at Jess... and smiles.. putting his arm around her * The tailor blinks, looks over to Tiernan, chuckles to himself at what he holds in his hands, shakes his head and returns to his work... <Jess> So, how do we pay for all this..the monsters we have fought didn't give us any kind of gold. * Reisha says nothing for a minute, and then let's her hand drop. "So do you.. now lighten up today.. no sense being all tense.." * Tiernan puts the ring on his finger, and the stone in his pocket.. <Kodah> Well, the Ring looks like a Power RIng there Tyr. I saw a similaer one in with the previous Shining Force * David nods slightly and brushes some hair off Rei's shoulder. "True enough. Thanks." <Tiernan> Power ring? <Tiernan> Hmm. <Kodah> Makes you stronger <Kodah> The statue is of Mitula <Tiernan> Mitula.... <Tiernan> And the stone? <Kodah> That's all I recognize <Tiernan> Would you like the statue of Mitula, Kodah? <Kodah> No <Tiernan> Oh? * Reisha shrugs her shoulder a little, and smiles back at David. <Tiernan> Anyone? <Jess> let's move on. We do have places to go and things to do. * Tiernan takes off the ring, and puts all three items in his hands. "Who wants these?" * Reisha turns to see what everyone else is up to. ^^ <Jess> Tyr, you keep them, a momento of the trip. * David gazes at Rei for a second and then looks to Tier. "Yeah. I'll take the statue. She saved my life, you know." <Tiernan> Okay. ^_^ * Tiernan hands David the statue. <Kodah> I kinda like the stone * Tiernan hands Kodah the stone. <Tiernan> And the ring...? <Reisha> You know, that ring goes great with my whole ensemble.. * Tiernan hands Reisha the ring. * David admires the statue and grins, slipping it into his pouch. "Rei'll probably lynch it offa you." <Tiernan> There.... * Tiernan smiles. "There's a nice feeling in my chest now. " * Reisha smiles and takes it. "hehe.." ^^ <David> It's called puberty. Lets go. ;) <Tiernan> Huh? O_o * Reisha slips it on her finger, admiring it for a minute. <Kodah> Giving things away can sometimes feel good. But sometimes it doesn;t <Tiernan> Good? <Tiernan> So when I feel good, it's puberty? <Kodah> Makes you happy <Tiernan> And what is puberty? * David laughs!! <Kodah> No, it's not puberty <David> Lets just go! <Reisha> Long story Tyr... ^^; * Tiernan's face falls.. <Tiernan> Stop laughing at me... <Jess> good idea, David... <David>'s a joke.. I'm laughing at my joke.. ^^; <Kodah> Ignore him Tyr <Tiernan> ... <David> I'm not laughing at you.. O_o <Tiernan> You aren't? * Reisha huggles an arm. "He's just a silly guy Tyr.." :P <Tiernan> Agh...nevermind. <David> Lets just go before I insert both feet in my mouth.... ^^; <Tiernan> So...okay.... <Tiernan> When I'm happy.... <Tiernan> What do I feel? * David smiles at Rei.. * Jess keeps holding onto Darin for dear life. "Can we go on and take care of business?" * Darin nods.. * Darin hugs Jess. <David> You feel...good...that feeling in your chest is happiness..not puberty...see, that was my joke.. I'll even explain puberty later if you's not something you discuss in a group :P * Jess tightens her hold around Darin. <Tiernan> Oh! So it's happiness! <Tiernan> Okay. * David obviously feels bad and tries to make up for his blunders.. ^^; <Tiernan> But you better explain this puberty thing later. ^_^ <Narrator> Puberty is where you get really hairy and REALLY REALLY horny. :P <David> Sure thing. ^_^ where to now? ^^; <Tiernan> WHO SAID THAT?! * Tiernan looks around in confusion O_o <Jess> Any way the wind blows, I guess. * Reisha blinks at Tyr's outburst. "Ah just ignore it...It'll go away." :P <Narrator> People walk quickly in the streets, whispering to eachother... People look around and glance at the Shining Force once in a while... <Tiernan> But it's such a scratchy voice! It grates on the ears! :/ * David eyes the people threateningly :P * Reisha walks with a nice spring in her step.. hard to belive since this morning. ^^ * Jess just walks along, holding onto Darin's arm. * Tiernan follows along silently. * David smiles at Rei's bounciness and looks around... <Tiernan> Where are we going...? <David> I have no idea. <Tiernan> Oh. Okay. O_o <Narrator> Some kid runs up to David, stops dead in his tracks and looks up at him. <Reisha> Beats me.. <David> Eh? * David looks down at the kid. * Reisha looks at the little kid and David. * Tiernan looks at the young child. <Narrator> The kid's eyes are dark silver, which are mesmerizing to David... <Jess> eh? Whats with the kid? <Reisha> Somebody you know, Davey? <Tiernan> Hello. <Kid> You're the people the big mean horseman's looking for! <Kid> ... Aren't you...? <Jess> horseman? <Reisha> Huh? * David blinks and falters slightly.. " Horseman?" <Tiernan> Horseman? <Jess> Big mean horseman? A Centaur? <Kodah> ...! <Jess> does anyone here know any centaurs? <Narrator> A woman runs up and grabs the kid. "I told you not to run away like that! Come on!" <Reisha> A centaur is it.... * The woman walks quickly with her child... * Kodah 's expression darkens...a lot <David> Wh....uh....that kid..wait.. * Tiernan notices Kodah's expression * David blinks.. <Tiernan> Did she not understand you, Kodah? * Reisha notices Kodah's expression. "Looks like you've seen a ghost or something.." <Jess> I'm not understanding what's going on here. What Centaur? <Kodah> .... <David> How odd....uhm....lets just keep going? <Jess> good idea. * Darin raises an eyebrow, but stays silent, nodding agreement with Jess * Tiernan puts a hand on Kodah's shoulder, looking worried. :/ * Reisha starts walking again... * David lazily slips an arm around Rei's waist as he starts to move again... "Lets just hope nobody else stops us...." * Tiernan follows * Reisha slows for a second for David, frowning. "You know.. trouble always seems to find us.. it's like clockwork.." <Reisha> Guess it comes with the territory, huh? * Jess looks up at Darin. "Why is it that we can't go a single day without some sort of trouble?" <David> It does...doesn't's a whole hero/heroine thing...requirement! * Kodah pulls his hood over his head * Darin shrugs at Jess * Tiernan keeps looking back at Kodah.. * Reisha flexes. "Hey, I think it's great living on the edge! makes you feel alive." :) * Jess notices Kodah. "What's with him?" * David laughs and squeezes Rei a little.. "I dunno...Kodah, whats eating you?" <Kodah> ... <David> Okay...don't share...but I'm pretty certain you and this horseman fellow have a past. A past that will maybe catch up to you in a bad way? * Reisha puts an arm around David as she gets squeezed... <Jess> and probably all of us too. judging from our past track record. * Darin nods at Jess * David nods in agreement and looks down at Rei.. <Reisha> Hey, we all have our little skeletons in the closet... I can't argue there. <Jess> too true. <Reisha> Not like it should run our lives though.. <Tiernan> I don't have any... <Tiernan> I don't have a past... * Reisha looks back up at David after that remark. ^^ * Tiernan bows his head down * David smiles and winks down at her before looking back at Tier. "I'm not sure if that's a blessing or curse for your part, Tier." <David> Some of us wish we didn't have a past... <Kodah> ... <Reisha> I think it would be great to have no past.. ntohing holding you back from living life.. <Jess> anyway, let's not worry about that horseman, centaur, whatever the hell, till he shows up. <Tiernan> ... <Tiernan> I want to know... <Tiernan> It hurts not knowing.. * Tiernan walks quicker. * David nods. "Okay, this subject is touchy. Lets just all prance mindlessly through the streets and wait for the horseman to run us over." <Reisha> Maybe you'll find out someday, Tiernan.. it's a big world out there. <Tiernan> I hope so... <Jess> that it is. To think that most of it we spend locked away inside the walls of a castle or town, when we could see the world and experience life. I am really enjoying this trip. * Reisha just haplessly follows David. <David> This trip has been....interesting, to say the least.. ^_- <Reisha> Oh yeah.. but it's not over yet, I'd think.. :) <Tiernan> Oh! O_o * Tiernan looks in a store window. <Tiernan> Look at that....that looks intresting... * David seemingly feels content with his arm around Rei.. <David> Mm? What does? * Tiernan points to some art supplies. <Jess> let's leave this town and go on somewhere else, OK? * Jess starts to walk toward the town gates, Darin in tow. <David> But I like this town! ;) Yeeeeeeeeeesh! Lets all follow the grumpy duo. ^^; * Tiernan sighs and follows. * David follows Jess and Darin * Reisha laughs, and follows... * Tiernan looks back longingly at the store. " I wanted to try that..." <David> Maybe another day, Tier...there's always tomorrow. ^_^ <Tiernan> That's right...there is, isn't there? * David nods and looks really happy.. * Reisha nods. "I bet the next town'll have stores to the sky.. <Tiernan> O_o There'll be stores in the sky? <Reisha> Umm.. figure of speech.. I mean a whole lot of them.. :P <Tiernan> Oh... <Narrator> The gates lie up ahead... <Reisha> You knuttoTiernan, you're really cute being so innocent.. maybe a lot of us would be happier that way.. :/ <Tiernan> Happier? Why? * David gets a slightly darker look.. "Just...because." <Tiernan> I feel confused so much... <Jess> but it leaves alot open to learn. * Reisha sighs, and hugs David a little tighter.. * Tiernan thinks about this for a while...and blinks at David's look * David snaps out of his defensive look and squeezes Rei reassuringly before heading out of the town gates.. * Jess casually walks toward the gates... * Tiernan hums softly to himself.. <Narrator> A centaur stands outside the gate... He inspects everyone who goes through the gate... <Kodah> ...crap <Tiernan> Kodah? <David> Eh? * Darin eyes the centaur cautiously.... but subtly.. * Jess looks in the direction Darin does. "Hmmm..." * Kodah moves to the side, watching the Centaur warily <Tiernan> Who is that...? <Narrator> The centaur feels eyes upon him... * Reisha looks dead at the centaur a second. "I think that's him.." ^^ <Narrator> The centaur turns and looks in Darin's direction... * Tiernan finds himself involunatrily stepping in front of Kodah * David lets his arm drop from Rei and tenses, ready for battle.. * Reisha maintains a calm and cool demeanor, letting go of David. * Darin narrows his eyes, as if in thought.... and makes CERTAIN that he stands between him and Jess <Narrator> The centaur walks towards Darin, then spots the rest of the team... <Narrator> He suddenly feels a presence... "Kodah. Show yourself." <Jess> Hmmm? * Tiernan keeps in front of Kodah. "What do you want, Sir?" <Tiernan> We....there is no Kodah here.... * Jess whispers to Darin. "What do you think we should do, Darin?" <Narrator> The centaur blinks and looks at Tiernan... "Lies fill your words, young one. You are hiding Kodah from me. * Reisha shrugs. "Kodah.. never heard of him.. stupid name too.." ^^ <Tiernan> N--no... <Tiernan> There is no Kodah here.... <Jess> strange name...Kodah...isn't that part of a musical arrangement? * David stays silent, his gaze piercing and cold.. * Tiernan begins to look frightened...more for Kodah's sake than his own <Narrator> The centaur pulls out his spear. "My name is Gerad. Prepare to defend yourselves." <Tiernan> No! <David> Fine by me, goatboy. * David draws AmeShi, the flames flickering hungrily.. <Narrator> ===== COMBAT ===== <Kodah> Hold it! * Darin stands his ground.. "Fine.. prepare to get the whomping of your life!" <Reisha> So much for the subtle approach... * Darin looks at Kodah * Kodah steps out of hiding, "You are a very persistent fellow Gerad. I would think you would have gotten the hint by now." <Gerad> Ahh Kodah... You show yourself... How typical of you. <Tiernan> Kodah! Don't! <Tiernan> You won't hurt him! * Jess conjures up a massive fireball. "Time for you to find out what it means when I say I'm going to open up a can of WHOOP ASS!" <Gerad> You know I must do this, Kodah. * Tiernan steps in front of Kodah again. "You'll have to step through me...!" * Reisha does a few motions in the air, preparing a spell or two or three... <Kodah> You kinda forced me to...considering you;re willing to kill anybody to get to me * Tiernan holds his hands out, and spreads his wings wide. <Kodah> You think you have to do this. I happen to disagree with you * David stays tense, AmeShi level and steady.. <Gerad> Mitula spurs my actions. I must kill anyone who harbors evil willingly <Reisha> What's wrong with you people? You and Jeyer seem to have some kind of death wish... :P <Jess> harbors evil? * Darin draws his Blade of Truth... <David> Kodah isn't evil. <Tiernan> Mitula would not want to kill someone who is as nice as him! * Gerad looks down at Tyr. "Step out of the way, boy." <Tiernan> No! * Tiernan stands firm <Jess> Darin, hold on..he says Mitula spurs his actions. you might want to stand back. <Jess> what with that sword of yours and all. * Gerad looks at Tyr's determination... "Insulent fool." * Kodah pushes his cloak and hood aside <Tiernan> Go away! Mitula wouldn't want to kill innocent people!! * Darin stays where he is.. "Jess.. anyone willing to kill for no reason, without explination... " he stops.. "I will not let down my guard.." * Reisha smirks at Gerad. "Touch him and you're Kentucky Fried Centaur." :P * Gerad twitches at Darin's words. "Explanation, knight? You need me to explain that Kodah harbors blood of a greater devil in his corrupt veins?" <David> He harbors the blood but he is not an evil being. <Darin> I have seen no such thing from him. * Tiernan blinks at this. <Jess> well, he's about to be fried centaur. When my fireball hits his sorry ass. <Kodah> ... <Tiernan> But he's not evil... * Tiernan stands even firmer in place. <Tiernan> I won't let you hurt someone who doesn't deserve to die... <Jess> Just because he has the blood of a devil, he is not an evil person. <Kodah> Save your breath people, this bastard already killed my family and many of my friends. He won't stop now. WHat's a few more drops of blood in an ocean of carnage? <David> Then we'll stop him. <Tiernan> He...killed your ... <Gerad> ... It is Mitula's will, boy... Now remove your presence, or I shall impale you where you stand. <Tiernan> No. * Darin nods at David. <Reisha> Maybe he's the real devil then, Kodah. <Tiernan> I won't move. <Tiernan> Mitula is misguided then...or perhaps you do not understand... <Darin> If you want Kodah, you'll have to go through US first. * Gerad shakes his head... "Then so be it." <Narrator> ===== Monster: Gerad ===== <Jess> anyone want CENTAUR BARBECUE? * Kodah flexes his fingers, not lookinh forward to this * Tiernan tenses * Reisha sparks some cracking barbs of electricity in the air. "if you want to mix it up, fine by me... Don't say I didn't warn ya!" ;) * David licks his lips. "Time to party." * Tiernan looks at Kodah. "I won't let him hurt you. I promise..." * Tiernan turns back to the battle at hand! * Tiernan pulls out his boomerang. <Kodah> I want to beleive that Tyr, I really do, but you don't know this monster like I do... <Tiernan> I'll try hard... * Jess begins chanting her magic.
