<Narrator> ===== Session start! ===== <Narrator> The Shining Force gathers at the docks, attempting to find a boat to lead them to the next island in pursuit of Reisha(The feminazi bitch from hell). Unfortunately, no ships seem to be in service... * Indigo reappears in an intense burst of white light. <Narrator> The docks is fairly empty... <Jessica> Hmmm..... <Jessica> we could always swim. <Meredith> I could fly...but...well.. ^^: You can't. * David scowls, his arms crossed... "Grand.." <Indigo> So, what are we all waiting for? * Jessica looks out. "How far is it to the next island." <Meredith> Hmm...Is there a port house anywhere...maybe we can hitch a ride on a cargo ship... <Narrator> The docks seems fairly deserted... A few lower class ships stand anchor dropped, their captains busy with loading and unloading cargo. <Meredith> ...Like that one? * Meredith points to a random cargo ship <David> A cargo ship....yes....good thinking, Meredith.. * Meredith blinks and turns around to Indigo! O_o <Meredith> ...hey! <Jessica> excellent idea, Meredith. * David blinks and ehhs at Indigo * Meredith whispers to David. "Tackle her. Now. While she's semi-sane." * David blinks. ^^; "But that'd be wrong.." * Indigo looks about.... <Indigo> I have an idea! ^_^ * Indigo glows blue. <David> No! * David tackles Indigo!! * Meredith whispers to David "She's insane....^_^ Thank you! " <Indigo> Neptune, Elemental of Water, tidal wave the beach and carry us away! <Narrator> == Indigo's spell fails * David grunts ^^; * Indigo sighs. * Meredith helps tackle Indi with David! <Indigo> David, it's rude to tackle people. * David gets sandwiched by Meredith * Indigo glows blue. <Indigo> Neptune, Elemental of Water, tidal wave the beach and carry us away! <Meredith> SHUT UP! <David> Indigo...! Stop summoning!! <Jessica> I could give her a nice new smile....right across the neck. * Indigo blinks, still surrounded by her blue aura. * Meredith pins her arms back. "David, do you have any rope or anything like that?!" <Indigo> Dear, it's what I do for a living. You'll understand one day. * Indigo pats David's head before Meredith grabs her. <Meredith> Oh, yeah, and I suppose it's your 'living' to off half of the guard here, eh? * David grabs a rope, hesitating. "But...she...I thought we figured out that she wasn't..." * Aura rolls her eyes <Jessica> can we just get a ride to the next island? <Meredith> ...I gotta tie her up long enough so I can explain a few things to her without her summoning crap * David wrinkles his nose before tying Indigo's hands behind her back. <Meredith> And more crap...and more know what I mean... <David> Can we get on a cargo ship now? * Jessica freezes Indigo's lips shut again with her ice magic. "That should keep her quiet." ^_^ * Aura sighs and watches.. * Meredith nods, and turns Indigo to her, pushing her long. "Listen closely, Indigo, Darling." * David heads to a cargo ship.. <Meredith> You know how you keep seeing Mitula on a regular basis? * Indigo struggles, then nods and writes with her finger. ~Yes, she is the founder of my family line. I call her Grandma.~ <Meredith> I know, Indigo...that woman is a fake. * David crosses his arms, looking for a sailor.. <Meredith> She's been finding out information about you and is driving you back into insanity. * Aura stands by the ship, staring at the water <Meredith> That's why she knows so much about you. * Jeyer walks away from the party across the coast line, looking at the ships docked, estimating one that would give the Shining Force safe passage... * David eyes Jeyer...before sinking into his thoughts.. * Indigo blinks. * David looks down at the water lapping against the docks... * Aura sits at the edge of the water, staring at it <Indigo> ~But Grandmother loves me. She protects me and said she would always be with me. She warned me of the family curse too.~ <Meredith> Because she's Celia...the same person who courrupted Tyr. <Meredith> She's a shapeshifter... <Meredith> Just trust me, Indigo. Do not go back to this woman. * Aura ponders just jumping into the water to get away from these loonys * David snaps his gaze up to Jeyer's form.. "Hey! Any luck?" <Jessica> I think I'll just start swimming....the sooner I get away from that psycho bitch, the better. * Jeyer suddenly trips at David's voice and falls face first in a pile of boxes <David> O_o * David grimaces and wanders over to Jeyer, helping him up.. ^^; * Aura blinks and looks over at the Jeyer * Indigo blinks and cries. <Meredith> I'm sorry, Indigo... * Jeyer leans on David to get up, wincing.... "Gah." <David> Sorry. ^^; * Jeyer dusts himself off and coughs slightly.. "I... Erm. No ships seem to take any passagers." <Meredith> Just don't summon too many things until this crisis with Volcanon is solved....not summon needlessly or for show. I have a feeling the spirits are confused as hell and that's why your summons don't work * Meredith unties Indigo <David> We could....uhm.. * Aura unlaces her boots and wades into the water.. * Indigo falls down and sobs, her hands to her eyes. <Jeyer> ... Swim? <David> Hide on a ship? <Meredith> Hmm... <Meredith> Hang on... * Jessica walks up behind David. "I like the idea of swimming, or I could create an ice bridge...but that would exhaust me. * Meredith looks at one of the cargo unloaders. "Maybe I can hitch us a ride..." <Meredith> I'll be back in a moment! * David nods to Meredith.. * Aura dunks her head under the water and looks around.. * Jeyer glances over at the candidates.. "They're all unusually well guarded.." * Meredith runs off to one of the unloaders and chats with him, showing off her Vinosec badge <Narrator> A small crab pinches Aura's nose * Aura shrieks and hops out of the water * David grimaces at Aura before rubbing his forehead.. * Aura grabs the crab and throws it against a boat <Narrator> The unloader glances at Meredith sideways.. "No passengers. Sorry." <Meredith> But this is an emergency! The Shining Force MUST make it to the next island. Your lives depend on it! <Narrator> The crab crashes against the prow of the boat, becoming a crab puff as he slides back in the water. * Aura puts all of her blades into her boots and goes deeper into the water * The unloader shrugs as he carries off a box to a storage house. "Not my problem, lady." * David looks back into the water.. * Meredith glares. "It will be." * Meredith sighs and heads back to David. "No luck." * Aura gets up to her waist in the water and looks around.. <David> Great....well....what are our options...? <Meredith> Swim... <David> Could we swim that far? <Meredith> That's all that's left. * Jeyer glances over at Aura and blinks... <Meredith> Probably not... <Meredith> I could request to reserve a ship, but that could take a couple of weeks. * Aura spies something she wants and dives under the water <Jessica> we don't have that long, Meredith. <Meredith> I know... * David runs a hand through his hair, beginning to look more and more frustrated.. "So....we...maybe we just...need to wait a night? Maybe there'll be ships tomorrow.." <Meredith> Not according to the schedule... <Narrator> The sky starts turning dark suddenly... The seamen glowering as they start working faster to get their cargo to safety * Meredith ecks and adjusts her glasses. "The next ship is coming in...a week. And it's booked." * Jessica snaps her fingers as a small piece of ice appears in her other hand. "Or....." * David looks up.. * Meredith blinks. * Aura pops her head out of the water <Jessica> Eh? * David murmurs.. "We could still hide on a ship." <Meredith> I wonder if our winged psychopath is returning...? <Jessica> you mean hide among the cargo? * Aura walks towards the shore..tripping a few times as she goes * David nods to Jessica.. <Meredith> Yeah, we've got no choice...we might as well. <Narrator> All the seamen suddenly call to raise anchor and the ships start departing in a frenzy of sails and sailor curses <David> ...damnit! <Meredith> No! <Jessica> Oh hell. <Meredith> Well...Fuck. * Aura yelps as the anchor she's standing on gets pulled up off the ground * Jeyer blinks and yells at Aura to move! * David looks miserable... and then blinks at Aura.. "Aura..!" * Aura is pulled about 6 feet up into the air, then tumbles off into the water * Meredith flies off the docks and grabs Aura before she fully falls into the water! <Meredith> Careful...! * David sighs softly... "Jeyer?" * Aura just blinks at the boat.."why the hell did they do that o_O" <Meredith> «ooc: Tyr: shall the Godess of the Storm...Yeeeesssss..... » * Jeyer just stays there, blinking... "Uhm. Yes? <Meredith> Because something is coming...again. You know how it is. ^^; * Meredith flies to the dock and sets Aura down on it. "There!" <David> Surely you have some mystic voodoo...or get us to that island...ideas..? thoughts? * Aura looks up at the sky..."its a prettty color.." <Aura> thank you, Meredith <Meredith> No problem... * Jeyer shakes his head.. "I can't use my powers, David." <Meredith> ...You know... * Meredith gives David a twitching eye look. * David blinks at Meredith.. <Meredith> ^^; you think...Reisha? * David looks up at the sky.. <Jessica> could be, Meredith.... <David> ...I don't know... <Meredith> I hope not. * Aura grabs her boots and stuff and walks up onto the shore, away from the water * David closes his eyes.. * Meredith gives David a reassuring hand on his shoulder. "It'll be okay, David." * David opens them again and shakes his head... "If it was Reisha, she'd probably zap some poor sailor in the butt with a lightning bolt....just cause." * Darin sighs.. and looks up at the sky.. <Meredith> ... * Jessica looks up too, but up at Darin. "what's wrong, love?" <David> We should head to an Inn....we need to get a plan.. <David> Standing here on the docks is just asking for trouble.. <Meredith> ...I suppose you're right... <Narrator> == The sky turns pitch black, the only lights visible being the ones lighting the docks... The streets are completely empty as a thick fog starts to settle over the docks area... <David> .... * Aura just stares up at the sky.. <Meredith> ...What time is it, everyone? <Jessica> 9:01 * David blinks and looks around.. "It wasn't late enough to be dark.." <Meredith> In the morning? <Meredith> ...Damn...Something's coming...We'd better find shelter now... * David nods.. <David> Lets go back to the Inn.. * Aura disapears off into the fog.. * Jessica looks at her watch. "yeah..we'd better find sheleter." * Meredith grabs Aura before she wanders too far. <Meredith> Let's go, Little one. ^^: * Jessica grabs Darin and goes to the inn. * David turns and heads back to the inn.. "C'mon..." <Narrator> Lights in the distance appear in the water... <Meredith> ...Wait! * Aura grumbles.."i'm not thaat little.." * David blinks <Meredith> Something's coming... <Meredith> Sorry Aura. ^^; * David turns and looks.. "Huh.." * Aura points to the lights <Jessica> Eh? * Jessica stops and looks back. <Narrator> The lights seem to cut through the fog... As the form approaches, a tattered sail can be made out by the Shining Force... <Meredith> ...A ghost ship/ * David blinks and frowns, feeling himself tense.. <David> Possibly... * Darin blinks.. <Jessica> more than likely. <David> Everyone be ready.. * Aura stares out at the boat * David brings his hand up to the hilt of AmeShi, eyeing the rapidly appearing ship.. * Jessica summons a fireball. * Aura forms a ball of ice in the air in front of her <Narrator> The boat quickly settles at the end of the docks, not dropping anchor... It simply sits there, waiting. <David> ......well... <David> We don't have any other ways... * David looks at the group. <Meredith> Let's go. * Aura walks towards the boat * Meredith flies onto the boat * David nods and heads for the boat.. * Jessica follows david to the boat. * Aura stands next to the boat * Jeyer nods resolutely as he goes to board the ship... <Narrator> The planks of the boat are rotted, but are seemingly solid... The whole deck is devoid of any movement... * Aura climbs into the boat * David frowns and mutters.. "This has so got to be a trap..." * Darin looks at the boat... "I .. don't like this." <David> Its all we've got to work with, Darin.. * Jessica follows Aura. "I don't like this one bit, but....I guess we'll have to check it out." <Meredith> Ghost ships ARE traps, normally... * David follows Aura as well, boarding the ship.. * Aura jumps down hard onto one of the rotted boards to check its strength <Narrator> The board survives the hit, seeming quite sturdy <David> Alright... * Aura walks along the deck of the boat.. * Meredith follows... * David trudges along as well, curious.. <Meredith> Where do we start looking, David? The captain's quarters? * Aura jumps on another random board <David> Yeah....we should look there first...that'd have a log book.. <Narrator> The board survives the impact * Darin slowly gets onto the ship... <David> Usually, anyway.. * Indigo walks along the ship, then perks up at Meredith's suggestion and trails behind them. * Aura shrugs and finds a high spot to sit on * David heads for the captain's quarters.. "Everyone be ready just in case..." * Jeyer climbs up slowly, trying as not to trip and fall... * Aura hops down and helps Jeyer on * Jeyer flinches at the help, but then calms himself and accepts her help... "Thank you.." <Meredith> ... * Aura smiles and kisses him softly on the cheek * Darin offers Jess his arm as they walk. * David opens the door to a cabin he finds.. * Jeyer blinks quickly and climbs on board.. * Jessica takes darin's arm. * Aura hops back up to her perch <Narrator> As the last of the Shining Force climb aboard the large ship, it suddenly starts moving away from the docks... <David> O_o <Meredith> Whoa! <Meredith> ...No turning back now... <Jessica> Holy..... <David> Great.. ^^; * Aura blinks and runs over to look off the edge * Jeyer sits down in a corner and falls asleep... <Meredith> ...Poor Jeyer.. * Aura looks over the edge * David sighs and glances about... * Jessica clings onto Darin for dear life. <David> I don't see any danger....not here, anyway... <Meredith> Let's find the captain's quarters... * Aura sighs and backs away from the edge * David nods and heads for the quarters.. * Indigo steps into the Captain's quarters, sits in the chair, and props her feet up on the desk. <Darin> I said it before, and I'll say it again... I don't like this..... * Aura finds Jeyer and sits next to him * Meredith follows David. * Jeyer mumbles in his sleep.. * David blinks as he finds the quarters and Indigo in them. ;P "Indi...what are you doing.." * Meredith sighs. * Aura just kind of watches Jeyer sleep <Narrator> The ship seems eerily quiet... It's heading towards the next island. * David frowns. * Indigo smiles. <Indigo> Resting! ^_^ <David> ....maybe she has the right idea...resting... <Meredith> ...Yeah... <Meredith> I don't see any ghosts...We might as well rest now that we have the chance... * Aura resists the urge to snuggle up next to Jeyer, and just kisses him softly..then runs off * David nods... <Meredith> Someone's gotta keep a lookout, though. <David> I could do it.. * Indigo climbs into the captain's bed and falls asleep. ^_^ <Meredith> No. You rest. I'll do it. * Aura looks around the boat.. <David> If you're sure... <Meredith> Positive. You've got enough on your mind. You'll need all the rest you can get. * David frowns a little but nods.. "Okay...but wake me if you're unsure of something.." <Meredith> Okay... <Meredith> Now go get some well earned sleep. ^_^ * David nods again.. "Oky.." * Aura finds the cargo hold hatch thing * David heads for the back of the ship, wanting to be alone.. * Aura pulls it open and crawls down inside the boat * Darin goes outside, and stands at the railing. * David takes off his tunic, bundles it into a pillow and lies down, clutching AmeShi to himself as he slowly goes to sleep.. * Meredith keeps a wary eye open for anything remotely wrong. <Narrator> An unearthly stench makes its way from the cargo hold <Meredith> ...? * Meredith sniffs. <Meredith> ...Geh, that could be a problem.. * Aura starts to choke and cough as she reaches the floor of the cargo hold * Meredith glances over at David, and just keeps an eye on the cargo hold. * David sleeps as if he's needed it very badly, a frown on his face.. * Darin turns around and looks at the cargo hold. * Jessica is with Darin. <Meredith> ...Everyone...Hmm... <Meredith> David needs sleep, but I have to investigate the cargo hold... * Aura covers her mouth and nose and blinks..looking around the cargo hold * Indigo is soundly sleeping in the captain's bed. ^_^ <Meredith> I need someone to come with me and investigate. <Jessica> I'll go wtih you, Meredith. You could use an experienced Magician on your side. <Narrator> The cargo hold is empty, save for three barrels of rotting fruits and anchovies... <Meredith> Thanks Jessica. :) <Meredith> ...Ah...that's it. :p * Jessica nods. * Meredith points at the barrels.... <Meredith> We're safe. * Aura gaaahgs and goes to check them anyway <Jessica> we could throw them overboard. <Meredith> Right. <Jessica> at least get rid of the smell. :P * Meredith picks up a barrel and hurls it overboard! <Narrator> The barrel of anchovies suddenly spills over the floor! <Meredith> ...Agggh crap. * Aura yelps and slips as the anchovies spill on her <Meredith> Oh well...I guess we'll just have to hold our noses the entire trip. <Jessica> I'll take care of that. * Darin goes down into the cargo hold "You ladies okay?" <Meredith> We're fine. <Jessica> I could burn them wtih my fire magic. * David curls up tighter, grimacing.. * Aura whimpers and stands up, but slips again * Aura crawls away from the anchovies and stands up, whimpering <Meredith> Everyone...I'll clean this up -_- You get some sleep! <Meredith> You'll need it. * Aura crawls up onto the deck and finds a corner.. * Aura whimpers..."i'm all anchovy-y" * Jessica grabs Darin and goes back upstairs and finds a room for the couple. * Darin frowns at Aura as he offers his hand to Jess. * David sleeps fitfully on the deck.. <Narrator> The ship makes no noise as it splashes through the calm river... * Aura sighs at Darin <Meredith> Everyone. <Meredith> Please.

Sleep. * Aura crawls away and hides in a corner.. <Meredith> I'll keep lookout. * Aura hides in a corner, whimpering about anchovies.. <Narrator> ===== Cut scene! ===== <Narrator> David sleeps restlessly... His thoughts wandering to Reisha(No shit). A large, grassy field, completely empty... David stands at one end, Reisha stands about 30 feet away... Both are staring at eachother... * David blinks.. "Reisha...?" * Reisha stares cooly at David, as if reading his thoughts.. a small breeze in the field playing with her blonde hair. <Reisha> David, why did you come here? * David steps forward... "Reisha....wha....this is a dream.." <David> know why... * David clenches his fists.. <Reisha> Do you really want to risk everything... * David doesn't hesitate, quickly answering. "Yes! Yes, Reisha! I will risk everything to get you to come back!" * Reisha closes her eyes. "That doesn't sound like a good leader... It sounds more like.." <David> .... <Narrator> A breeze blowing over the grass suddenly stops... * David blinks and tenses.. "Wh.." <Reisha> Like a man... in love. <Reisha> But is love worth dieing for? It can be so fleeting.. <David> ....this isn't fleeting, Rei...I...I can't...stop thinking about you.. <David> You''re on my mind...all the time...I just....god, Rei...I love you...I know its not fleeting.. <Reisha> Maybe.. <Reisha> Maybe we are both crazy... * David tries to get closer to Reisha, almost afraid she'll disappear.. " can't end here....I can't let you go....I can't lose you....not now...not ever.." <Narrator> The grass fades away... Darkness surrounds them both now... * David glances around.. * Reisha 's form darkens... <Reisha> No, I'm already lost.. I always was... just give up on me... <David> ....

You demon.....release Tiernan! * David narrows his eyes <Tiernan> Tiernan...? Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA! * Tiernan laughs! * David growls.. * Reisha fades back in, an aura of power around her. <Reisha> David.. just.. go away. Stop being a fool and save yourself. * Reisha raises ehr hand.. and blasts David with a surge of electricity. * Tiernan 's voice seems to gain a slight inhuman growl to it. "The little mortal form of Volcanon...? Him? Why, he's dust on the wind. Don't bother." * David cries out in pain <Narrator> == David is blasted into unconsciousness... He falls and everything in his dream dissapears in a flash. <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== <Narrator> David awakens screaming! * David screams as loud as he can, bolting upwards, his hair plastered damply to his forehead and his body bathed in sweat <Meredith> AGH!

And something blowing in it... * David blinks and raises his hand to his ear.. "What..!" * Aura crawls out of the corner over to the edge of the boat <Narrator> The feeling suddenly dissapears... <Indigo> Now now....we all get bad pictures in our head sometime. You drink a glass of warm milk, and I'll tell Kara and Chamolo that you need a good sleeping spell. <Narrator> A big patch of wetness can be felt across Indigo's cheek suddenly... * David growls and slumps down onto the deck bonelessly.. <Meredith> Indigo...he's a friggin' teenager! Leave him alone! * Darin watches from a distance, feeling unable to help. <David> ....I...I won't give in....I won't....won't give up...on...on Reisha...or Tiernan....torture me...go on! <Indigo> You have no compassion Meredith!

There is a flare that blinds you, and when it passes, you see Tiernan before a huge black and red Phoenix O_o <Hans> A phoenix! <Darin> O_O * Kodah growls * Aura sighs.. <Jessica> O_O; <Hans> They look just like I was told when I was in school! * Tiernan gazes his eyes hatefully at Kodah. * David narrows his eyes... <Hans> But...

That's right...FEEL my power...writhe in fear! That is the true cowardice of humanity! That is why I am triumphant and you're all going to be DEAD!~ * Aura looks down at her necklace... * David growls..

"Mercury, great celestial spirit of water and ice, let your power become my sword to defeat that which threatens me. FREEZE 2!"

"! Kodah!" * Aura throws the ball of ice at Tyr..."PUT HIM DOWN!!!" <Tiernan> ~Certainly.~ <Narrator> == Aura and Jessica cast Freeze Lv. 2 on Tiernan.

An aura of holy light surrounds Kodah and their wounds begin to close up. HEAL 1! * Aura stands in front of Tyr... * Jessica tries her best to heal Kodah. <Kodah> X_x <Narrator> == The heal spells fail. * David glances back at Reisha and then at Kodah... "Bastard...I'll make you pay..." * David crouches, gathering strength.. <Jessica> No one else is dying on my watch. == When Aura looks at Tyr, however...she ses that he's not the frightening version that is Zeon, but a wide, terrifed version that stares at Kodah... <Tiernan> Kodah...? <Tiernan> NO! * Hans puts his right hand on Kodah's forehead * * Hans begins to charge a spell * * David pauses, blinking at Tyr... * Aura blinks at Tyr.."do you remmeber anything..?" <Hans> I don't think this'll work... <Narrator> == Healing energy is negated. * Tiernan rushes to Kodah and shakes him tears falling down his face.

".... ¤Heal..." <Jessica> What in the world is going on here? * Kodah wobbles in Tyr's arms like a wet ( and bloody) noodle * Hans notices his healing spell not working * Blast... <Narrator> == Jessica can see that Tyr's eyes aren't white, but normal looking. <Narrator> == Healing energy is negated. <Tiernan> killed you... * Hans feels Kodah's pulse, hoping for the better... * * David growls and gathers Rei into his arms protectively, heading over to Kodah and Tyr.. <Jessica> Tyr? Tiernan? <Tiernan> ~Heh heh heh...~ * Aura gently puts her hands on Tyr's shoulders.. <Jessica> Oh great...not again... <Narrator> == You can hear Zeon's voice in all your minds, even though it still seems like Tyr's in control of the body. <Darin> ..... * Reisha 's heart is beating..
