<Narrator> ===== SESSION START ===== <Narrator> Murmurs fill the dungeon as a new prisonner is tossed in the cell... <Narrator> The people inside inspect the new arrival, assuming he must be powerful to be in there with them... <Narrator> The two gruff guards who tossed David on the floor exit and lock the cell... <Narrator> The cell consists of 3 small cots, a small latrine in the far corner and a pump for water... <Narrator> Darin, Indigo, Delina, Jess and Reisha examine the unconscious David... <Jess> Hmmm...anyone a healer around here? * Indigo looks at the man before her, noting a strange resemblance to someone familiar. * Darin raises his eyebrow indifferently, but curiously. * Reisha least the newcomer is kinda cute when he's unconscious <Indigo> This looks like someone I knew before....years ago.... * Delina looks at the unconscious man "umm what can we do for him * Jess sits back on one of the cots....wondering who in the hell is behind the raiding party that catpured her. <Jess> No idea, Delina..I wish this room wasn't nullified, though. * Indigo nods at Jess. * Reisha nods to Jess <Indigo> If it weren't, I could summon an elemental to free us. I wonder who was behind the attack on my crystal tower though. <Reisha> They're afraid of us, I bet. They couldn't handle my magic even if I had my hands tied behind my back! <David> .......mmmfgh.. <Jess> They sure couldn't handle my magics.. <Delina> umm i think hes wakeing * David slowly opens an eye... <Jess> that's a good sighn. <David> ...whu....what.....? * Indigo nods. <Indigo> Nor mine. * David snaps awake and sits up! * Jess looks at Darin. "You've been quiet for a while...what's on your mind?" * Indigo looks at David. <David> Where the hell am I? * Reisha looks down at the man "You ok?" * Darin eyes Jess and paces restlessly. * Darin looks down at David.. "What did he say?" <Jess> in a cell. * David looks at Reisha. "I guess....uhm.....but...who are you?" * Reisha smiles <Jess> we were all captured for an unknown reason, sir. <Delina> yeah isn't it wonderful... * Indigo nods politely. <Reisha> I'm Reisha, thunder mage extraordinaire. <David> ...unknown reasons? By the flames of AmeShi. <Reisha> And your name is? * David nods to Reisha. "David Willcott." <Jess> I'm Jessica Sorenson, a magician.. <Indigo> AmeShi? Wilcott! I knew I recognized you! * David blinks <David> Do I know you, miss? * Darin looks over at Jess, eying her again.. * Reisha turns to Indigo "You know him?" <Indigo> I am Indigo Mysteria, elementalist. I knew your parents, Chamolo and Baine. We traveled together sixteen years ago to save the world. * Jess looks over at darin. <David> ! <David> THE Indigo? <David> The psychotic lady? <David> I mean! uh! The used-to-be psychotic lady! * Indigo laughs. * Reisha raises an eye <Indigo> I was insane for most of my life, yes. <Reisha> SO I'm a cell with least that's a comfort. * David grins meekly <David> ...I'm not a hero. Hell, I wasn't even out of the house long before I got captured. <Indigo> I was cured due to a little personality problem. But why did you leave home? * Darin continues to silently look Jess over. <Jess> Neither was I, David. I left to practice my magic when that raiding party captured me. * David leans on the bars of the cell. "To make a name for myself." <Jess> what in the hell would they want with...*Stops in mid sentence.* <Indigo> Ah. * Reisha nods to david "Same here." <Indigo> Took after your mother, did you? <Jess> I don't want them knowing my heritage... * David smiles slightly. "I guess. But I'm not a butcher." <Jess> Mitula knows they're probably listening to our conversation. * David turns and looks out the bars. "How shall we get out of here?" * Indigo chuckles, then looks at Jess when she mentions Mitula, blushing slightly. <Jess> if one of us could use magic, we could get out of here.. <Delina> i don't know you have any ideas? <Narrator> Guards at the front gate mumble and laugh hoarsely at certain comments made by others... * Reisha makes some motions to call down thunder, but to no avail.. * David frowns and then grins. <David> Hey! Guards! * David whistles loudly <Narrator> A VERY large, mean fellow turns around and walks over to the cell door... * Jess tries to hide herself slightly so no one recognizes her.... <Guard> Whaddya want, runt? * Darin raises an eyebrow, and speaks for the first time. "Are you nuts??" * David blinks and looks at the very large man. "Are you always this ugly or am I just lucky?" * David steps back from the bars, out of the large man's reach * Reisha whispers to david "What you planning?" * Indigo looks the guard in the eye unafraid, having seen worse than him in her time. * The Guard boils... "You little bastard child... Why I oughta..." * David grins a bit at Reisha and whispers to her... "Taunting him till he opens the door and tries to hurt me. Then I'll kick his butt and get the keys.." * Jess is just hoping no one recognizes her as who she really is... (To be told if we ever get out of here.) * Reisha smiles....( I get it ) <David> Huh! You couldn't if you tried! * Indigo smiles at David's strategy and laughs at the guard. * Darin eyes Jess and walks over to the corner, and hides her from view. * Jess whispers to Darin. "You recognize me, don't you?" <David> You want a piece of this, beefcake?! Come get some! * The Guard looks at David and bursts out laughing! "Not because I'm large that I'm dumb, you runt... The old, "Piss of the guard and knock him out" trick won't werk on me!" * David kicks the bars * The Guard walks back to the team, recites the said words and they all get a good laugh! * David growls. * Darin whispers back, "I do, my lady.. stay quiet.." He smiles faintly <David> How fuckin' lovely...err...I mean.. * Reisha enjoys laughing at the guard, but would like having her magic back even better * David stumbles over the curse word :P * Indigo calls out after the guard "No, but I remember when your grandmother guarded this dungeon. Frankly, she had far more guts than you will ever have." * David scowls and crosses his arms. <David> Anyone have any bright ideas? * Indigo is not *that* old, but couldn't resist. * The Guard snickers and walks back to the cell door... <Delina> umm i think i do * Jess tries to stay silent.... * David twirls and looks at the Guard.. :P * The Guard simply stares at Indigo, the middle aged lady * Indigo stares back. * Reisha gets an idea <Indigo> You could defeat me in here, like the coward that you are, or I could step out of that cell and we could have a fair fight. <Guard> You know, missie? If you weren't so old, Maybe I'd go in there and show you what a real man is. * Reisha walks up to the guard, smiling seductively 1"Why you smart man you!" * David blinks at Reisha.. <Delina> well your not one * Indigo sees Reisha and represses her laughter at the guard's statement, turning away to wipe her eyes. <Reisha> What's say you and me go for a little stroll...tell em about you brave guard exploits.. * Reisha swallows her pride for her freedom :P * The guard blinks and stares at Reisha... "I'd rather have the middle aged lady there. *points*" * Reisha blinks * Indigo turns back, raising a eyebrow but playing along. <Delina> *walks over to the guard* umm can you tell me one itsy bitsy thing <Reisha> OH... so you're one of those types... * Jess thinks to herself. .oO(And I'd rather have my magic right now. That guard would be toast if I could cast only one Blaze spell.) <Guard> Whut? * David examines the guard quietly <Delina> are they really desprate for dumb help or are you the exception * The Guard taps his foot... "K'mon, slut... I don't got all day..." * Reisha pouts "Fine...I bet you don't even like a challenge, going for an old lady you sicko.." * Jess stays silent, not wanting to let the guard know who she is.. <Guard> BAH! * Indigo smiles and walks towards the guard. <Indigo> One problem, the door. <David> Miss Indigo.. * Indigo is fighting down disgust but smiling. * Darin glances back at Jess, and whispers.. "You ok?" * Jess whispers. "I don't want that guard knowing who I am, sir." * The guard blinks and unlocks the door... * Darin nods at Jess. "I understand, my lady." * Reisha is surprised that Indigo's going for this * Jess whispers to Darin. "If they found out, the impact on Granseal and Guardiana could be disastrous." * David tenses a bit. * The guard opens the door slightly to let Indigo out... * Indigo steps outside and a few steps away, her back turned while she whispers to herself * Delina watches * The guard closes and locks the door. <Indigo> "Tirex, elemental of War, I summon you. Destroy these guards!" <Guard> Let's go, you sexy woman, you!... WHA?! * David runs a hand through his hair, blinking repeatedly. <Narrator> == Tirex is summoned... All guards lose 35 strength. <Narrator> Guard: WHAT?! *drops to his knees* * Indigo turns to the door and points. <David> Yes! * Jess still stays silent... <Indigo> Dao, elemental of Earth, shatter the door and bring down the roof on the guards' heads! <Narrator> One of the guards inches towards the alarm... * Darin watches, listens, and vows to himself to protect Jess with his life. <David> Indigo!

A large table is in the corner with cards scattered all over it... <Jess> good idea. <Narrator> A door is to the left and stairs to the north... * David glances at the door. <Jess> maybe our stuff is behind there. * David heads for it... * David swings the door open, looking inside :P * Indigo goes for the door. <Narrator> The door opens and reveals a storage room... * Jess follows Indigo.. * Delina follows * Reisha goes to the door * David steps into the storage room * Darin follows Jess closely... * Indigo enters, looking around. * Jess looks around for her magic cane..."Where can it be?" <Narrator> Everyone's equipment seems to be accounted for...

"Don't you have a spell to occupy those guys while we check out the doors? There are enough doors for each person except one. You can be the extra person. The one who kicks all the guards in the behinds." <Narrator> A sharp passage to the right opens up at the top of the stairs... * Indigo whispers "I deal mostly with elementals. Hold on...." * Reisha whispers to Indigo "Yeah..she's good at that.." * David glances at the passage.. <Jess> Hmmm... <David> ....we can do my plan or we can all go in the passageway.. * David looks at the group <Jess> that passageway seems safer, David. <Delina> i agree * Indigo whispers "Silaris, elemental of Death, visit upon these guards with your fearsome specter." <Reisha> Well, I'm not afraid of those guards..but I guess the passage is a little safer.. * David waits for the results of the spell.. <Narrator> == Silaris is cast... * Jess waits to see how Indigo's spell goes. <Narrator> == 8 of the 10 guards fall... <Jess> I'll deal with the rest...just go. * Reisha shrugs and moves up the stairs closer to david and the passageway * Indigo follows Reisha. * David glances at Reisha. "Right. Through the passageway then." * The other guards freak out! O_o * Jess raises a hand toward her enemy as a solid sheet of ice encases guards.

"This seems Oh well." * David attempts to open it. <Indigo> Oh, it comes naturally. Every female of my family line has been a sorceress for over 1100 years. <Reisha> Wow..first a hero, and now a hero's son..I bet I'll be famous too if I hang around with you guys. <Jess> Oh.... <Indigo> In addition, my father was a sorcerer too, so I just picked it up. * Reisha smiles * Indigo smiles at Reisha. <Narrator> The ebony door opens up with a little effort... * David overhears Reisha but tries not to blush :P <Indigo> Most likely. That was what happened to me. <Jess> if you only knew, reisha.. * David steps through the doors.. * Indigo follows David. * Jess follows Indigo. <Narrator> Everyone's lungs are filled with the sulfurous air inside the room... <David> O_o * Jess covers her nose and mouth... * Indigo coughs. * David makes a small wheezing noise * Reisha coughs * Delina cough and gasps <Reisha> Ack..what is this, a volcano or something? <Narrator> The only thing lighting the room is a large metal brazier... <David> ....this isn't good. <David> There could be anything below us. <Indigo> *cough* The brazier, knock it over! *cough* <Jess> now THERE'S an understatment. * David frowns at Indigo's comment <Narrator> Another connecting door is seen near the brazier... Light seems to be pouring out from under it... <Jess> toward taht door.... <Indigo> Light and heat are *cough* often connected.... * David cautiously steps forward * Indigo nods and heads towards the door. * Jess walks toward the door, cautiously. <Narrator> The door doesn't seem to give off any heat...

I see you have escaped. That is not good... <Jess> well, it wasn't hard as stupid and non-resistant to magic as your guards are. <David> No, really? Dumbass.. * Indigo gives the mage a withering look. * The mage boils slightly and sweatdrops * Reisha quickly hands David a couple of her throwing knives 1"Hope these help.." * David blinks <Mage> You cannot go any further. <Indigo> You might want to train the guards to rein in their lust a bit. Assuming of course, they have brains to train, or that you do. * David smiles at Reisha. "Thank you, miss." <Jess> I beg to differ. <Reisha> No prob...Now time to rock and roll it would seem... * David looks at the mage and steps forward. "We'll go further if we damn well please. Step aside." * Reisha grins <Mage> I cannot let you people go... Prepare yourselves. <Indigo> For your pathetic attempts at magic? * The mage prepares a spell... * Indigo smiles sweetly. * Jess prepares herself for hand surrounding itself in fire, the other in ice. * David raises a knife and tosses it at the mage's throat <Reisha> No, YOU prepare YOURSELVES, sissy boy. * Reisha glares at the mage * Darin draws his blade, and steps over to Jess.... <Narrator> Mage: Ultimate power of earth...

You and your pathetic lot... <David> Grr.. * The mage starts casting death level 4 on Indigo. <David> Miss Indigo! * Reisha mutters to herself "Odin...release us from these us...I promise I'll be good.."" <Jess> INDIGO! <Indigo> Though of course you're nothing more than a lowly flunky yourself, trying to impress your goons whom you need to validate your own self-worth.

Close to the oceanside... <David> Granseal.. <David> ...we can go to my home. If you people need a inn, there is one in Granseal. <Sasha> I'm sorry I worried you mom, but I have to get going now. * David looks at the others. <Indigo> Did.....did our ancestress contact you while you were away? I asked her to...wait, where are you going?! <Sasha> To collect my bounty * Reisha stands proudly "I'd appreciate it..I was on a trip that way before I was so *rudely* interrupted." <Jess> and I'm from Granseal myself...well, in a way.. <Indigo> Bounty? Sasha, are you a bounty hunter now???! * Sasha nods * David smiles at Reisha a bit before looking to Indigo and Sasha <Sasha> Yeah, that's why I came here. <Jess> Haven't I seen you around Granseal castle, Darin? * Darin smiles at Jess.. <Indigo> What of your training. I mean, as a female of the Mysteria line you did inherit the curse...... <Sasha> Mom, I don't think the curse exists anymore.... * Darin nods "Aye, my lady, you have." * Indigo smiles tightly. <Jess> I thought so... <Indigo> Trying contacting *her* then. <Jess> anyway, can we get going toward Granseal? * Reisha smiles back, actually feeling positive for once (I'm with heroes! This is going to be cool!) <Sasha> Mom, I'm no magician, I can't! <Delina> yeah <Jess> I'd hate for an international incident to start because of one person's dissappearance. <Delina> how far are we anyways * Sasha turns away "I guess I'll go with where ever you guys are all going for now..." <Indigo> You have the magical blood in you Sasha, and the curse that comes with it. <Jess> about a half a day's walk.... * David smiles. * Indigo sighs softly, and nods. <David> Are we all ready? * Indigo nods again. <Delina> then we better hurry ,i'm hungry * Reisha nods <Jess> I am. * Sasha pulls out her sword twirling it aimlessly in the air "Yeah, whatever." <David> Lets go. * David heads off. * Sasha heads towards Granseal * Delina follows David <Reisha> I could use some feet are killing me.. * Jess starts toward Graseal * Reisha heads off after david and the others * Indigo follows along. * Darin follows Jess closely.... <Narrator> The Shining Force heads towards Granseal, walking at a normal pace... * Jess looks over at Darin.
