OOC: This thread never dies! I shall see to it...And hopefully so will Tay and Insano, the constant reminders. (three cheers!)
Anyways, the story is simple. A group of heroes from all pans of life, good, evil, nuetral were summoned by a cleric of Paladine to battle five new gods who had arrived in Kyrrn from another dimension. The only way to stop them is to recover five pieces of a scroll which can send them back. Unfortunatly, each scroll is protected by an evil new god. Four of them have been recovered, with losses to the heroes. But now the leader of the heroes (Ghostbuster Lillypad, kender cleric extra-ordinaire[yes, he was the only one who'd take the job]) has been captured, and the five Gods are demanding them back... or woe be to the poor little kender!
The heroes stand at a loss in an unamed clearing of an unamed forest, at a loss. However, this mission is of great importance to the Gods of Kyrnn, and they have decided to send emisaries to help and guide the wayward heroes. Those emisaries...are you!
OOC': Besides of the old heroes (of course), any new players might like to play the messanger of a God. Semi-avatars, demi-gods, clerics, whatever. However, only one messanger per God (that is, No one hundred guys for Paladine, Gilean and Taki, and no one else. One for each, though of course minor Gods are included. Nutari, Mishakal, Reorx come to mind.)
Rule two: Be original. No Fizbans or Astinius, eh? It might be fun to make up a totally new avatar. Twice and twice shall he be named, and once shall he come, and thrice shall he eat, and twice shall he run to the bathroom- Verse I, The Prophecies of the Coming of Joe.

OOC: Well Joe...I want to join this and stick with it this time!! lol...I think that I will play my new dragon character...Navare, if that is alright with you that is....He is a Black Crystal Dragon...and is the son and messenger for Takisis :) I figured I better stake my claim before somone else did! :D anyway...Navare can be mean and downright nasty...but he doesn't like the Idea of new Gods invading Krynn. Let me know if this is ok."On a hot summer's night, would you offer your throat to the wolf With the red roses?"

Navare banked easily evading a sudden cool air current...he caught a thermal and glided on it, circling lazily. His scales where a translucent black, and sparkled in the sunlight. His wings...Black Feathers, had an odd irridecance...Deep Emerald one way...and deep violet one way. His deep Red-amber eyes scanned the ground as he flew.

His Mistress, and Dam, Takisis...the Five headed Dragon Goddess herself had sent him. She did not like the idea of these five evil gods from other realms invading and jepordizing her chances take over Krynn. He didn't particularily like the idea himself...But he would do as she commanded....he would help these low lifes...these commoners to banish these play-gods back to where they came from.

Suddenly, in a clearing, he spotted a small group of people and dived for them. He pulled up abruptly, and landed without a sound."On a hot summer's night, would you offer your throat to the wolf With the red roses?"

The Old mage walked toward a group in the distance, Leader of the order of Light magic, called by some other old man, in grey robes, named.... Fizbun, Fizbutt, Furball.... it didn't matter, He was called to get rid of phony gods, and Aldermanius was going to do just that. He found himself on the ground with a mouthfull of moss. Spitting he yelled, "Damned root, why'd you trip me? Here first? You could at least move for your elders!" The old Elf yelled at the root. The group looked at him like a madman, they didn't know the half of it."A magic-user?" the old man peered around. "Where?"
Tas whispered something, poking the old man.
"Really? Me?" He said. "You don't say! How remarkable. now you know, come to think of it, I do seem to remember a spell... Fireball. How did it go?"

OCC: Why, we couldnt have an annoyed thread without good ol' Insano, now could we Joe. Now all we need to do is get a hold of Mirror and Tay, and we'll be off!!

IC: Insano the expert gnomish inventor, and gnomeflinger expert stands about the clearing, still demanding to know whats going on. "Hey, lads, I thought we were dead!! But I guess maybe we aren't" The sudden aproach of a black dragon frightens him. "Oh dear, I certainly hope that isnt one of the new Gods approaching, or I could be in trouble" Ponders Insano alloud.
After hearing that this massive beast will be joining his party, Insano begins to pelt it with questions. "What is you're average wind vilosity? Is it faster than a swallow? An African, or a Europian Swallow?"

OCC2: Sorry guys, I just had to include that little refrenceHEY! Pay attention you fu.....BOOBIES!!

J'mes stared at the new dragon for a moment, then looked back to Sarumth. *This one is different.* He thought, comparing this dragon with the ones he had seen earlier. *How many kinds of dragon do they have here?*

"Um, hello. Where is your rider? And does anybody know who that was that just disapeared?!?! (Tantric)

Taylor Magetaunter, Kender Magic Collector, looks at the new dragon for a bit, then pulls J'mes aside. "That was Tantric. Shortly before you joined us, we had a big battle against a spider goddess and her minions. Tantric went head-to-head with the goddess to buy us time to escape. I thought he died. Don't know how he survived, or what he wants (OOC: Remember, I was unconsious when Tantric made his demands)." Taylor then pulls an earring out of one of his pouchs, puts it on.0 He then thought to himself, "Don't normally wear this, but it should come in handy, what with lessening the dragonfear and all."

Taylor takes a step towards the new arrival.

Crimson
12/03/2001 1:39 AM

Suddenly there was a bright flash of flame. Standing there was Crimson, looking at the groups with curiosity.

This time it was different. Where he was normally dropped into a world and had to find out for himself what to do, this time he was brought to Astinus first. He had told him the problem, and that Gilean had chosen Crimson to represent him. Wether or not it was Gilean who moved he wasn't sure, nor did he really care. Whoever moved him needed him for something, and what that was he might find out some day but not now. Now he had this world to help, in the name of Gilean.

Seeing the black dragon and the old man, he sees that they are here for the same reason. "Greetings heroes, I am Crimson. I am here on behalf of Gilean." he said.

{ooc: this is the third time I used this character, hope he'll fit in. as for the monty python reference, you should have replaced the African and European for Krynn names. That would have been a bit more realistic.}Why is it we always forget to keep the good things close to our heart,

((ooc; I'll stick with this one, I promise!!! My chara; messanger for Mishakal, mercury dragon.))

Mezzikurra whipped through the wind like an arrow. Her small, lithe body twisted in the streams of unseen currents in the night sky, until she found her calling. In tight fast spirals, she swung down near the assembled group. Landing expertly and folding her wings, she gave the Black a curt not and the old, mad mage a revered bow. She then allowed herself to take on her human appearance, a young human girl seemingly in her early twenties. She had long, dark silvery hair akin to her mercury scales that casaded down her back like a waterfall, and bright emerald green eyes. Her flowing gowns of white just barely dusted the ground by her bare feet.

"I am a messanger and aid to Mishakal. I will join you on your journey. I am called by dragons Mezzikurra and by men Elara." She bowed to the group."Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens." -- Gimli, The Fellowship Of The Ring

Navare's lip curled at the sight of the Mercury dragon, but he made no move...he returned her curt nod, then followed her example, shifting to human form. The shimmering Black Crystal scales seemed to glow for a moment, then faded all together.

He stood in the clearing in the form of a Thirty-ish human. Very fine chisled features, very hansome (in an evil way :)) He had long black hair, tied at the nape of his neck. His eyes where and odd inky black. He wore robes of the softest velvet, and of the deepest black. He gave the group a mocking bow.

"I am Navare...The son, and Dragon Heir to Takisis! My Queen isn't pleased at the recent turn of events...She has sent me to...(Nearly choking the words) Help."The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start"

OOC: I'd love to be a part of this thread...I hope it goes all the way to the end, im growing tired of threads just dying out :) :(. N E ways I'll leave it up to you guys if ya need this character. here is a really breif overveiw.
Venlah is the son of Nuitari and another god (that hasnt been revealed who the other is yet). Blood thirsty (has a great taste for elven maidens) and tyranical he seeks to rule all of krynn and have them in subjectin to himself and Nuitari. He chose to live in mortal form rather than live amoung the pantheon of gods (9'8 feet tall 2 tons, muscular, reddish brown skin total green eyes) By choosing to live anoung mortals he doesnt have the same powers he would have as a god (though still extremely powerful). The chosen favorite of nuitari. seems like a fun character whom I havnt used much..................:)Confound you Kakarat!!!!!

Nuitari's mother if I am correct, and he was a cleric with a mace and, I think that pretty much allows anything. (About the crazy old mage, more than correct!) Think of Elistan. Cleric of Paladine, is he friends with the Dark queen too? nope. so a balance is not completely needed.

(IC)
Aldermanius walked up to the group, smiled, realizing this would be another great adventure for a man who has lived over a millenium. (Elf, remember)

"A magic-user?" the old man peered around. "Where?"
Tas whispered something, poking the old man.

Insano glances about camp, many new arrivals have come. "Woah, I wish we had all this help when we started our little quest." mutters Insano.

The Gnome walks over to his best friend Tay. "Hiyuh Tay. I'm not too sure what happened, what with Joe talking about Tantric coming back and stuff. All I know is that Tantric isnt the same as you and I knew. Remeber, the one we knew in Solamnia.....er was it Kalaman. Oh jeez, I dont even remember. Anyways, Tantric is really mean now. He hit me in the face just cause he wouldnt listen to me."

A Ogre approaches Tay and Insano.

"Oh hello Ogre. Do you have a neat name? Like Toe Nail, or something mean like that? My name is Insano, how do you do? I guess you're quite the opposite of me, cause I'm a gnome, and really smart and you're a Ogre and really strong, but dumb. Anywho, I mean no offense by that. I would like to ask you some questions about how you work, cause I'm pretty sure that the Gnomes at home would like some reseach on Ogres like you, cause we dont talk to you very much.

Far,far away, the last God knows what occurs. It knows everything...it should know everything! But those puny gods in this Plane made it so...difficult. But for now, it knows enough. The equalivent of an eyebrow is lifted, and a mile away from the clearing of the heroes a beacon appears. A single, continious ray of Dark Light pointed at the sky, as if a black sword striking at the gods. It is easily seen from the clearing...

Tantric
12/04/2001 8:05 AM

The dark warrior stalked through the narrow underground hallways of his island fortress. He quickly passed cell after cell each one with screams and moans emanating from behind the bars. Reaching the end of the final hall, he pulled a small green stone from his belt and inserted it into a circular opening in the center of the wall causing a door to materialize.

Inside he found the kender cleric, Ghostbuster, sorting the contents of his pouches for probably the thousandth time since his capture. Tantric's entrance brought a gleem to the bored kender's eye that the evil warlord did not want to see. So to avoid the needless questions and incoherent chatter, Tantric lifted the kender of the ground by his collar and threw him against an adjacent wall as hard as possible.

"Listen well, kender. From the look of your group of heroes, your chances of ever leaving this cell are not looking promising. So, I have decided to allow you to help them," he finished his sentence with a smile broadening across his face.

Reaching out to the kender again, he tore open the brightly colored shirt and quickly branded the kender with the insignia from the ring on his right hand. Ghostbuster squirmed and the medallion of Paladine glowed with a defiant light as the evil spell from the ring took hold in the deepest reaches of his soul but there was no stopping its effect.

"Call your god, kender, and tell him to take you to your heroes," Tantric spat the final words out with disdain. "But do not attempt to doublecross me. Your soul is now held in this ring by the power of the scrolls. There is no mage or god alive that can reverse the spell without all five scrolls. Do your job and you will go free. Fail and you'll regret it for an eternity."

Tantric smiled at the kender once again then disappeared into the black mist that now signaled the arrival and departure of the dark warrior, leaving the kender alone in his closed cell but this time with the freedom to call his god and rejoin his friends.

Stacey appeared behind a black crystal dragon and gazed around at the companions. She was tall and lithe, with soft, black hair and warm brown eyes that seemed to be far to old for her 17 year old body. ((It's my birthday!!!:))) Her long, red cape fluttered in the slight breeze, revealing a large blue sword and dagger at her side.

Her eyes widened slightly. "Holy hell..." she muttered in her native tongue. She stepped forward and switched to Common. "Hiya everyone. I'm Stacey Ali, chosen of Lunitari."

The companions all stared at her and the human squirmed. "So how're you all doing...?"

Navare was becoming restless and bored...a dangerous combination. He sighed and calmed himself as he heard his Mother's voice in his mind.

Relax my son, you will one day bring me much joy...for now..you must abide yourself by doing as I say...I know how you feel by aiding these lesser creatures...but, your day of glory is at hand.

Navare calmed and studied one of the newcomers...the girl proclaimed as Stacey. He smiled at her charmingly and felt the inner thrill of toying with human emotions.

"Oh uh, I think a god is sending us a message, and it ain't one of the Old Gods."

"Endy!" J'mes says to the blue firelizard. Go see what it is he then thinks to it. The fire lizard flys up, goes between to near the blackness, then returns. J'mes thinks to the lizard for a minute, then speaks to the party.

"It's a column of blackness coming up from the ground about a mile from here. That other person said something about Neraka. A city, I presume? Perhaps we should go there as well. First perhaps this darkness."

"Everybody - mount up!" Sarumth is used to riders, so I can probably take three others. Everybody else let's get moving."Free the flame and sear the grasses,

Navare shifted back immediatly. "I will carry whomever is willing." He said as he stretched his black featherd wings. His dark red amber eyes locked onto that darkness. As powerful as he was...as powerful as his mother was....He didn't like it...somthing was seriously wrong here.

He turned and noticed that not one of the group approached him. he sneered and crouched low. "I swear on my life, on my power...that I am here to help you...I don't like it...but I will do it. now, I am willing to carry up to three people...I cannot hamper my movments any more than that.""The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start"

sneering back at navare Venlah replied "We are kin in some fashion, I have no need to fear you. I will ride." He too had notice this strange presence in the dark light. It was time that they got to the bottom of this.

Keeping to his black robed form (he was quite sure navare wouldnt want a 2 ton 9 foot tall person to carry) he approached the crystal dragon.The magic of the mind is within you all. Do you have the power to harness it?

Stacey rolled her eyes at the black crystal, though he didn't notice. She didn't fear him, didn't fear much in this world or the other. She was the Chosen of Lunitari and if she played her cards right, one day she would move between worlds as if stepping through a doorway. By all rights she should have been terribly afraid, as she much to lose.

"It's that damn TV," she muttered with a laugh. "De-sensesitizing our nation's children."

Still, she wasn't a fool and didn't trust the dragon. Evil had never been noted as trustworthy and if a situation should arise were backstabbing would be beneficial...the human decided to be cautious. Though the dragon didn't have to know that.

With a wide smile firmly in place, the thought of flying made that easy enough, Stacey climbed onto the dragon's back without warning, digging her heels into the junture where scales met wings. Though it didn't do a damn thing to injure the creature, it was sure to be an annoyance. Squirming till she was perfectly comfortable and then squirming some more, the human reached up and tapped the dragon on the shoulder.

"I had this friend once...he was nuts...but anyway. He drove like a maniac. Scared the shit out of Brian...but I liked it. Now with flying it's a lot easier to get some turbulence going...I expect nothing less then a rollercoaster ride...say, Batman the Ride. Ha. I miss 6 Flags..."

Not caring that the dragon hadn't understood half of her request, Stacey leaned back and wrapped a blanket of circulating energy around herself to keep out the wind. She attempted to wrap it around the other passenger, whom had yet to be introduced, but he shrugged off the magic. She shrugged back. "Suit yourself." Fine tuning the chemical reaction within the energy blanket, she silently thanked her chemistry teacher--something she'd never thought she'd do--and settled in for a wild ride.

She noted, with some amusment, that the dragon was looking at her as if she were insane.

Just then Insano attacks but being small like he is it's easly blocked then the fire lizard goes to flame Taylor,Insano. Lockjaw uses his magic and it reflects. Then Lockjaw speaks a spell "pas kinf yang vixe diablus" and a giant meteor hits the lizard then taylor uses his well known ability that all Kenders do "taunt" which he's really good at.The lizard is in a rage (he called him a newt.) he attacks with a fury striking Insano. But Insano attacks back a awesome blow to the head destroying the lizard. Oh, he has a magic book with him here Lockjaw take it. "thanks Taylor. Insano do you want to learn magic you can be my apprentice what do you say?" "ya that would be great."

From high above the group hovering above the clouds a single human form watch's, his emerald eye's seeing the group ready for departure. The harsh cold wind bats at him but cannot penetrate his strength of will, He looks towards the beam of darknes and knows it to be a disrespectful jesture to the gods.

IC:Insano becomes weary with his conversations with the Ogre. The little gnome could tell he was far smarter than the loutish Ogre. Insano turns on his heal to go investagate some other people who had joined the adventuring party. Insano thinks to himself Boy oh boy, is there ever alot of new faces here, I remeber back when I started it was just me, Tay, Mirror, Gaia, Joe and Tantric. Those were the good ol' adventuring days....

"Ah well" says Insano under his breath. The gnome decides to take time to meet some of the new people.
He approaches a red robe, a young woman about 17, he eaves drops on another conversation that the young woman seemed to be having with another member of the party. After hearing her mention something in a different language, Insano becomes vaguely intrested.

"Oh, why hullo there Stacey, how do you do? I'm Insano of Mt. Nevermind, how do you do? Anywho, I specialize in gnomeflingers, but once I heard you mention something in a different language and I think that maybe our figureingoutandlearningtospeaklanguagesthatwehaveneverheardof guild may want to speak with you. But until this quest is over, I cant see myself returning to the Mountain. So therefor, I conclude, that perhaps I would like to speak to you until that date....that is unless you mind."HEY!

Navare shook his head. He was more amused by this peculair human than anything else. "You want a ride..." he grinned "So be it"

without further warning, he launched himself up into the air, climing high, then droping in short, vertical dives. He kept his eyes tuned on that collumn of darknes, while his ears where trained on Stacey's squeals of delight. he didn't quite understand what she ment by "roller coaster" but he recieved a brief mental image of a huge metal contraption on which a serpent-like linked boxes ran along it at high speeds, and loops, and twists.

"a rollercoaster eh?" he laughed and smiled... "I can do that"

He dived, not caring what the others thought of his antics, and tucked his wings as he twisted into a tight virtical spiral. He opened his wings less than twenty feet above the ground, as the wind pushed agianst his wings, he gained his altitude again."The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start"

Crimson still hovering in the air was looking intently at the darkness.
"I think it's about a mile away from here." he yells down, "I can't cary anyone but as you can see I can fly."

In the mean time he was looking at Stacey, who was obviously enjoying herself on the back of the dragon. Could it be, could she be from earth? he thought, It has been so long ago allready.

The look on his face didn't change, but inwardly he smiled.Why is it we always forget to keep the good things close to our heart, but let the bad things cloud our mind.

Suddenly, with a physical shock, the memories come back to the kender. "He...He branded me!" Ghostbuster says to himself in shock...and despite branding being an experience many kender would enjoy, this branding was different. He could feel a taint...in his body...in his soul...
Ghostbuster shivered, fell down and began...for only the second time in his life, to cry his heart out. His racking sobs resound in the empty prison cell.

Okay, Crimson? Your from earth? Geez. Everyone's taking my idea. :)

Just to avoid confusion, I'm gunna have a quite conversation with Insano which took place before I got on Navere and before all you people posted...okay? Oh and, was it me who didn't name which dragon I got on? I said black crystal at the begining...I try not to use names until the chars are intorduced...keeps it realistic but confusing. Sorry.))

BIC: Stacey grinned at the gnome and asked his name. "Nice to meet you, Insano...I very much doubt that your, er, machine could figure out my native tongue. It's incredibly different than any language here. However...I'd love to talk about technology with you. My people have no magic and so have created tons of machines to make up for that lack. And...ours...um...work. No offense. So, yeah, I'd like to talk about it when we get the chance." She frowned slightly as the gnome's face lit up and wondered what she had gotten herself into.

"Er, but not now. I have a rollercoaster ride to get to." She grinned and left the gnome on the ground.

Navere took off without warning, tossing his riders and forcing them to grab hold. Stacey's stomach learched. She was used to rollercoasters, but that meant she was also used to being strapped in. Fear gripped the human, welling up till she thought she was going to puke from fear rather than zero g's.

But losing face like that was not an option. Switching to english in order to avoid the dragon hearing, she yelled at the top of her lungs, which was actually rather impressive. "PUKE? I HAVEN'T PUKED SINCE I WAS THREE!!! THIS IS FUN!!! WHHHOOO!!! THINK OF THE PHYSICS!!!" she gulped, trying not to calculate how hard she would hit the ground if she fell. For once the equations came far too easily. "ZERO G!!! DAMN, THIS DRAGON DOESN'T EVEN DO LOOPS!!! HAHAHAHA!!"

Near hysterics, the mage finally convinced herself that this was quite possible the most fun she had ever had in her life and, much to the annoyance of the dragon, started screaming with joy and shouting things like, "Come on, faster!! Dive, dive, dive!!!"

Stacey, in her joy, failed to notice the dread that welled up within as they neared their destination...

Appearing seamingly out of nowhere, a figure makes his way toward the already moving party. "Wait! I wish to help you!", he cried. He was a woodsman of some kind, the fact made obvious by the hide armor he wore and the expertly crafted bow slung over his shoulder. He was an elf, or at least part elf, for his body was too lithe for a human, and the point of his ears were visible even from the some 40 yards he was sprinting from. Finally reaching them, he fought to catch his breath. "I wish to help you." he said while regaining his composure. He managed a weak smile. "My name is Mazithra Dardragon, and I have heard of your exploits. Though it may not be much, may I offer the service of my bow and my faith in Branchala, that I might hope protect Krynn from these outsider gods?

"I'm known as Crimson. I come from a distant place and time. I thought you were from a familiar place, but I must be mistaken." Crimson replies, "But I think we should continue this discussion on the ground."
And with that he banks away from Navare.

He quickly sets down looking at the blacknes. He also notices the kender that came out of the portal. "What do you suggest we do now?" he asks in general.

{ooc: he's human, i posted him in one of the introduction posts. there you'll read how he can fly. Earth is really just a distant memory for him, but the meeting with stacey will awaken some of the dorment memories. i have a flare for the dramatic.}Why is it we always forget to keep the good things close to our heart, but let the bad things cloud our mind.

Mezzikurra zipped from one side of the black light to the other, looking up, looking down, looking at it. After a while, she zipped back down and landed softly next to Navare and Crimson. Her form shifts to that of Elara, and she carefully approaches the beam and extends a hand forward.

Stacey stared straight ahead in awe, her chocolate eyes wide. She studied the thing for several long moment and saw one of the companions reach forward to touch it. She shook her head silently, more in disbelief than alarm.

"Holy hell...where's a camera when you need it?" she muttered. Crimson glanced at her, startled by the mixture of Common and English. "This is definatly a Kodak moment...damn..."

Crimson was staring at the blacknes (for lack of a better word). This was somethin he had never seen before. Astinus had warned him strange things might happen. Still deep in thought he suddenly heard Stacey.

"holy hell...where's a camera when you need it?"

Crimson glanced at her. Hearing a somehow familiar word.

"This is definatly a Kodak moment...damn..."

Another familiar word, his thought began to race. Images, pictures, words all raced to his head. Then suddenly he said something without really thinking.

"I don't think this realy qualifies as a Kodak moment. Beside a panoramic view wouldn't even be enough."

Realisation dawned on him. That was from Earth, he thought. but it's been over fivehundred years, Kodak should ancient history by now.

"Where are you really from." he asked Stacey.Why is it we always forget to keep the good things close to our heart, but let the bad things cloud our mind.

OOC: I am going to assume that no one is on Navare's back now.

BIC: Navare stared at the collumn, and watched the Mercury dragon in her human form reach out and touch that inpenatrable darkness. Navare was watching her, and listening to stacey and Crimson talk. He didn't quite understand half of what she was saying, but, each time she said something, a mental image came to mind. most of it was quite interesting...

Turning his attention away from them all, he scanned the area. His amber eyes narrowed as he saw the Kender. In a flash, navare was in his human form, black velvet robes dusting the ground. he rushed over to the kender. All the while he wondered just what was wrong with him...this wasn't like him at all.

He reached out and touched the kender on the shoulder. "Hey!!" He called, as he rolled the kender over. Navare flinched at the sight of the Medallion of Paladine around the Kenders neck, but he quickly put it out of his mind.

"HEY!! Anyone a Healer or Cleric!? My Magic cannot help this one!!!" he cried, motioning to the group.

as they moved to his direction, Navare wondered again, just what was wrong with him."The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start"

OOC: are we just standing and looking still?


Venlah reveled in the presence of the 'blackness' that they all looked upon in wonder. Some strange power came from it that confused him, he knew also the great peril that was at hand. *What use will anyone be to me if we are all dead?* He thought this with disdain, he wasnt enjoying the company of the group, most of which in normal times would be his adversaries.

Whatever this was he wanted to find a way to control it, or harness its power. *I'll help these fools now, but when the time is right........i'll use this to my advantage...if it can be done.*

The son of nuitari stood deep in thought, pondering what was to be done and how to proceed. No matter what he tought with bitterness * will have to cooperate...................for now* Silently he looked upwards *Nuitari....you have given me many gifts, great power, knowledge. I ask that you aide me in this time and give me understanding as to this thing we face, so I can be prepared. My only wish is to RULE, my only wish is to please you and bring further glory to your name. Heed me and give knowledge.*

A sudden change came over Venlah as he continued to gaze upwards. His eyes began to glow a blazing red and he could no longer stay in the form of the black robed mage. He shook and convulsed as his form began to change into his true self. An odd yellow aura hung about him as he lay shaking on the ground, his robes now in tatters as he changed into his much larger true form. Moaning in pain he bellowed "NO! This cannot be" as he began to lose consiousness. Muscles began to spasm and beads of sweat covered his large body, and then just as suddenly he relaxed. He clenched his hands and whispered "I know" as he lost consiousness.The magic of the mind is within you all. Do you have the power to harness it?

Stacey cocked her head in thought. "It would only work with a really expensive camera...ya know, in order to catch the counturs of the blackness..."

She trailed off, finally realizing what was being said. She turned and gaped at Crimson, letting out a string of curses that ended with,"you speak English!? Holy hell!!"

She calmed instantly and narrowed her eyes at him. "I'm from Chicago." she said, her tone suspicious--there were spells that could translate but she had never found one powerful enough to span the gap between Common and English...besides how would a translation spell explain a camera?

"Who are you?" she demanded suddenly. His reply was interrupted by an inhuman cry. The representative from Nuitari was changing...Good becomes ignorant.

Aldermanius pulled on Elara, then realized that he could make the dragon budge he thought for a second. and recalled somethin that old mage with the bent hat had said... "Fireball, nice spell isn't it?"
Aldermanius tried to blend in with the magic of this realm, he got some bat guano out of a pouch, crunched it in his hand while muttering a few things, and a bright fireball lit the sky. The fireball crashed next to Elara and broke her free of (whatever she was holding onto, it made no sence to me) "A magic-user?" the old man peered around. "Where?"
Tas whispered something, poking the old man.

In a land that time seemed to forget, twenty-one chairs surrounded a table made of solid onyx. One by one these chairs were filled. The horned head of Sargonnas, the decaying body of Morgion, and the forested purity of Chislev were among the the pantheon assembled until only three seats remained. Then night consumed the meeting place and the Queen of Darkness made her presence known. She was followed by her counterpart inthe balance of Krynn, Paladine. Finally, Gilean with his book took his seat at the head of the table and tried to bring this meeting to order.

But that would not come to be. A dark mist consumed the meeting place and the image of a man clad in black armor could vaguely be seen.

She edged closer to the music and began to hum softly, missing a few notes here and there, but after a few minutes of practice she had the tune perfectly and never missed a beat. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Stacey glanced at Crimson and shrugged. She suddenly felt very uncomfortable, a feeling she hadn't felt since forcing herself to adjust to this strange world. She shrugged again and then cocked her head as someone asked what they were going to do now.

This is my chance,she thought. Her chance to turn her attention to someone else and not acknowledge the old music...

But a song had already stuck in her head. Quietly she stared to hum a guitar intro and then started to sing...

"You and I in a little toy shop, buy a bag of balloons with the money we got. Set them free at the break of dawn till one by one there were gone..."

((OOC: Know that song? 99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger. A friend of mine was determined to memorize it and he forced us to listen to it till he did. Thus, it's stuck in my head. Great song. :)))"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Hearing someone ask about what to do next drew his attention to that.
Then he heard Stacey humming and starting to sing.
He didn't know the song, but it was definitly from Earth. No other world would make a song like that, with those lyrics.

Involunarily he started singing himself:

Stacey stopped singing as one of the companions turned and yelled impatiently. The young human raised an eyebrow and gave the woman a dirty look.

"Gods!" she said tersly. "I'll have you know Luni loves my music..." Leaping forward, she sprinted easily with her long legs, red cape following behind in the sudden wind.

Catching up to the woman, Stacey ran by her side and demanded in an overly angry and obviously faked tone, "Whose music are you callin' stupid??""I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Stacey grinned at Elara and quipped, "I'm highly offended and you should be sorry." She then stuck out her hand and said, "I'm Stacey Ali, as we haven't been properly introduced and I happen to think that lots of things are more important than this mission because it shouldn't even exist!! If people would stop being evil and stupid, I could be at the Tower now reading a lovely book. But, alas, the ignorant people never go away and here we are."

She continued to grin but stopped talking. Elara's initial outburst of energy had effected Stacey as it had with a friend of hers a long time ago, in another life. The two had been so close that their moods seemed linked. One's energy was another's and Stacey had felt that again just now. But Elara had calmed down and Stacey felt the energy seep away. Her grin faded to a smile and her mind went from reeling to introspective.

Her expression now thoughtful, she kept pace with Elara, stopping only to turn and say a very quick, "Thank you." "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Elara looked about her. Nothing. No leadership whatsoever. She hung her head, knowing that she, too, was never meant for leader. However, she knew something needed to be done, and fast. Time certainly wasn't on their side.

"Listen," She said, addressing the whole group. "It's either you guys come with me and help, or I do it alone. It's not something I would look forward to doing, but it is something that has to be done for the continuation of life! We are close, can't you feel it? This is the beginning of the end, and when its over, whether we'll be alive or not, we'll be heros, legends . . . I'm going to Neraka, and those that want to follow can. Those that don't, go home and pretend nothing happened and if suddenly these New Gods bear down and destroy Krynn, know that it could have been prevented with your help." She paused and took a breath. "So, who's with me?"

Stacey chuckled at the use of the phrase "the begining of the end" and Elara glared at her, thinking she was laughing at their mission.

The human's eyes widened and she looked as innocent as possible. "I'm with you...never said I wasn't. Everyone stopped..." she shrugged and grinned. "Just going with the flow. Nice speech though." she suddenly stopped grinning and looked darkly at the rest of the group.

"War does not make people heros, it makes people dead. Remember that. Fight for your freedom and rights...not to be a hero." The last few words were said with a tone of pure disgust and the mage walked off without looking back at the stunned group.

Approaching from the forest is a dark robed figure, around 6 feet tall. His hood is thrown over his head and conceal every part of him.

There is something peculiar however about this person, for he walks with... a limp, sort of...

Wabbly legged he approaches the group. He pauses for a moment before speaking. When he does his voice is forced to sound deeper, that much is obvious. "Greetings, I am....." There is a long pause. "Kiwi." Another long pause. "I was sent here by" Yet again another long pause. "Zebiom, goddess of." Another long pause. "The sea, or whatever." Another pause. "Who are you all?"

Stacey, who had stopped near the edge of the group and started fuming, disolved into giggles at the word Kiwi, which, oddly enough, sounded the same in Common as it did in English.

She didn't seem at all worried by the fact that the man was a black robed mage as she stood laughing, managing, barely, to get out her name and show off her red cape.

Elara watched Stacey, a sinking feeling growing in her stomach. Stacey's speech had made Elara feel like she was trying to bribe everyone with greatness, which hadn't been true, Elara was just never good with speeches. She grew quite furious when Stacey started laughing at 'Kiwi' and strode angrily beside her.

"Excuse me, it is an absolute pleasure to have you with us, Kiwi. Don't mind the foolish human at my side, she had been showing signs of brain damage ever since she joined us."

Brain damage? BRAIN DAMAGE?? Stacey thought bursting out with another wild peal of laughter.

"You're the one who's all ready to march over to some god, wave your sword, and then bow to a waiting crowd as they cheer on their hero!! You have no concept of war or danger!! You, my dear friend, are pathetic and shortsighted, and you say I have brain damage because I think the word 'kiwi' is funny?? Kiwi, in my language, happens to be a fuzzy little, green fruit!!

I swear you should carry a sign that says 'Welcome to the land of fruits and nuts!!"

The mage stopped talking as she could no longer breath. She kneeled over slowly and then lay on the ground, barely able to contain her laughter. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Elara sputtered with rage and pain. She was not used to being acosted so, and it hurt.

"Well excuse me for not wanting the world to fall into darkness!" She yelled, tears beginning to well up. "But you shouldn't make assumptions becuase most of the time they arewrong! I'm not suggesting we confront him for glory but for freedom like you say! You foolish, foolish girl! You're so proud about your damned race, but sometimes I wonder if they actually exist or were just a conjuring of your mind to gain some attention! You're probably the one hoping for fame and glory!"

With that she turned and ran into the darkness. She was young, inexperienced, and somewhat prideful, but she was extremely hurt that someone would even think that she was trying to do this for glory. She finally flung herself into teh dirt and grass and curled up in a fetal position, crying.

"Hey, I resent that!" Comes a high pitched voice, the voice no more forced. A stiff arm points at Stacey. "A Kiwi is not just a fruit little one but a flightless bird from New Zealand! Being a wizard I thought you would know that, perhaps not. Did you know that a Kiwi's egg weighs roughly 15-20% of the females body wieght?" So wrapped up in his lecturing the figure wabbles violently as Stacey laughs, then arms flailing the robe falls revealing a gnome standing on stilits, holding two sticks he used as arms. "BAHHHH!!!!" The gnome yells as he falls backwards with a thud, knocking the breathe out of him. "Drat, I was going good too." The gnome says as he fishes out his half inch thick glasses. "I also am nearsighted you!" He says pointing an accussing finger at the woman. Coming to stand he brushes off his clothes. Dressed in a gray cloak and black shirt and pants he stands in front of the group. About three and a half feet tall eyeing them all curiously. "Hello I am.... huh thats funny. I cant even rember my own name." The gnome says jokingly but his smile dies off. "I really dont have one. My father was a mad gnome and so when he died, I had to leave outside of Mt. Nevermind. I took residence in the forests, where I found.... them." The gnome raises an arm to the forest, his gray robes drooping from his extended arm. "The Kiwis have been my family. I am... I guess there shepard." He says and soon several gray flightless birds approach following behind the gnome. Prodding the ground every once and a while searching for food as the gnome meets the others. "Anyway I see I've found the right group. The goddess Zebiom came to me as I was bringing my herd to the lake. She said a group of adventurers would be along near my home soon and I was to join them. She told me about a scroll we were to recover? Whats this all about?"

((OOC: Um...how exactly do you know about New Zealand?))

Stacey stared after Elara and then could have kicked herself, as the saying went. She didn't know what happened...she was usually so good at judging people and changing to fit their personalities...

Proud? she thought. Yes, I am proud...my world has come so far compared to this one and I miss it...I miss it terribly...is that so wrong? Has it really come so far? Things are terrible there, worse then here...but life is better there...for me, at least, not for those others...I've never seen war, not really...but I miss my world...

The mage blinked and then started off into the woods. She found Elara quickly by following the soft sound of her whispers and sobs. As she neared the other, two things struck her. One, they were the same, the same age, the same inexperience...Stacey was just able to hide behind her knowledge, her different and wider view of the world, her casual atitude that had been shaped by another life...

The second realization hit her harder than anything. Elara was praying. Stacey had never believed in a god...she was extremely loyal to Lunitari, but it had never occured to her to pray for guidence. For the first time in her life, Stacey felt completely and utterly alone and scared...so very scared...

Losing all grace, the human plopped down besides Elara, startling the other. Stacey stared off into space, thinking...her thoughts were a mess. She thought about home often, but never in this way...she was always thinking about the good, her family, her friends...when she described her world to others here, she was descriptive and never said that her world was without faults--quite the opposite, she'd shake her head and talk about the stupidity of the humans of Earth--but she never realized the brutality of it. In fact, she really didn't know...she had only seen movies.

She had seen death here. It had been terrible, of course, but the reality of it here only served to make the reality of it there more grueseome. She recalled the movies Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, and Black Hawk Down and then imagined them to be real...

She shuddered and started to cry softly. As she did, the magic welled up unbidden and her talent for illusion, both physical and mental, came to life...

Before Elara appeared images she couldn't understand...people being blown apart by strange, whistling weapons of massive power...cries of agony and prolonged deaths...shards of metal exploding in every direction, taking off limbs...blood, everywhere blood and the suffering...children with skin stretched too thin across their bones, people being tortured and starved, worked and beaten...impossible images of explosions no mage, no matter how ambitious, could hope to even create a fraction of...brave soldiers charging into impossible situations and being slaughtered by a rain of strange metal balls...

Stacey heard a strangled cry and finally realized that she had accidentally been manifesting the images that were in her mind. She ceased at once but it was too late, Elara had seen it all. The human tried to bring to mind words of comfort but all she could whisper was one phrase.

A fine smell followed Stacy, and caught up with her as the immages faded.

"You look like you could use a lunch young lady." Aldermanius said setting a bowl of stew in front of her. "It's not pizza, but it'll do."

Aldermanius had a keen knowlege of all the worlds he had seen. Stacy's was only one of them. Aldermanius remembered the food most of all. "In a land of violence, it takes more bravery to end a war, then the cowardice it takes to start one." Aldermanius said, pointing up. "Those stars have never seen the war that you have, they are there to lift our spirits. Scientists in my world say that they died out long ago, they ruin the splender and magic of it all, don't let the magic of this world get ruined by the sight of blood spilled by people who never were in the fight, who mercilessly sent others to fight 'the good fight' Fight your own.""You know if there was one thing I think could help this, it'd be putting a gnome in a cannon" Solaris said.

Hey Tay, I think we have the world record for largest introductions in a thread, I mean look at this in all of 146 posts, Ghostbuster Lilly pad, got branded, we all met, a Mercury dragon touched a black beam and Aldermanius fireballed her out, and a troll acted insanely odd several times, oh and tay and insano had some of their funny antics, but others than that this is rather redundant you know?


OOC: Heh, read the first 40 some post of the original thread. About the only thing that happened was me, Insano, Gaia and Mr. Offhand showing up, Mirror killing a boar naked while Tantric spied, and Mirror stealing Tantric's clothes.Taylor Magetaunter

Elara looked over at Stacey, speechless. She was so confused; nothing made sense any more. "I'm . . . I'm sorry." She said, knowing it was lame but not being able to think of anything else.

Aldermanius then joined them with food, and Elara soon realized how hungry she was. She ate in silence, her mind reeling through all the images Stacey had shown her. Periodically, she'd choke down a sob, trying to remain strong, but slightly shaking with a distant look in her eyes, like that of a frightened animal."Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens." -- Gimli, The Fellowship Of The Ring

"THATS IT!!!" cries Insano at the top of his lungs. Looking around the makeshift camp that had been formed, the gnone looked at all the people around him. He suddenly felt very old, he and Tay seemed to be the oldest two adventures in this quest among this flock of missmatched heroes.

"I intend on beating these damned Gods down, for good, for evil and for neutrality, and I swear, that if I have to do it alone, I will!" with that, Insano climbs to his feet and begins to walk towards Neraka.

"Wait I'm coming!" Kiwi said fumbling out of his stilts following the gnome with the cone shaped hat. "Well hello there. Its nice to know a fellow gnome. I really have no idea whats going on but I'll go along anyhow. Neraka you say? I ran into some pretty surely felllows there once. I am Kiwi Underplot." Kiwi says as he walks with a fellow gnome, his kiwi herd following closely. "Those who follow the heart find it will bleed. Feel nothing but victory."

Stacey also ate in silence, glancing over every once in a while at Elara. She had never intended to show her those things, never intended to really show anyone what her world really looked like. It was too much, too strange...it would either be misunderstood or worse, feared.

The mage sighed. She had slipped up, majorly and yet, a small part of her mind was glad. She shook her head helplessly and caught Elara's eye.

Stacey smiled weakly, then, and said softly, "Still think I made it all up?"

((OOC: Insano, we'll get there. I don't want to mess anything up and, to be honest, I'm still not exactly sure what we're supposed to be doing. That's why I went along with this little subplot. To wait and have some guidence. As soon as we're done eating, I'll follow though. :)))"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Elara quickly turned away so that Stacey couldn't see the tears. "I'm sorry." She said quietly, hardly above a whisper, "I'm sorry, I--I didn't know, I--" She stopped, unable to find any words to express her embarassment.

She noticed Insano, and quickly, somewhat awkwardly, stuffed the rest of the stew into her mouth and mummbled a thanks to Aldermanius. "They're moving, better get going." She said. She stood, wavered for a moment, and then took off in a brisk walk after the two gnomes, still wiping her eyes."Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens." -- Gimli, The Fellowship Of The Ring

Stacey shook her head in frustration. Things definatly needed to lighten up around here. The young mage turned to Aldermanius.

"Thanks for the food. One of these days, I'll magic us up some dough and sauce and all and we'll have some kick ass pizza," she attempted a small smile at him and then stood. Taking long strides, she caught up to Elara and walked slilently beside her as they caught up with the gnome.

01/20/2002 8:06 PM

Insano walked away from the group, thinking that no one would follow him. But by all the gods he swore, he would finish this blasted quest, even if it meant his life. The gnome trudged on, however to his surprise he noticed that he had followers.
"WOW, it looks like I may be the leader.....who would ever have thought that a gnome would be a leader??? Must be because of my scientific brains, and my perfection in creating gnomeflingers. Well, people, it looks like we'll be headed for Neraka! By foot I assume since we dont have Dragons......WAIT, thats it, when we first began the quest, the magic users could summon Dragons! It isnt possible for any of you mages...is it? It certainly would cut our travel time down."


OCC:Alright, for all of you who dont know whats going on, there are a bunch of new Bad gods who are trying to take control of Krynn. SO, a band of heroes (us) both good and evil have been united to overpower these new gods and there minions. So hypotheticly, a goblin serving Takhisis could be on our side.
any questions? I'll cover it in my next post I'm sure Tay will help out too.

Crimson looked up a little at the mention of Pizza and Kiwi. But continued eating, the little bit he had. It was just a scrap of dried bread. But it was enough for now.

When the little Gnome, who called himself Insano started screaming and tramping of in a direction. Crimson just followed, not really knowing what to expect. The meeting with Stacey only re├źncouraged his desire to go home. As he walked on his mind wandered I wonder if they still show MacGuyver on tv.

Insano's mention of mages conjuring dragons brought a small smile to Elara's face.

"Perhaps we could develope a gnome flinger to launch us to Neraka!" Kiwi suggests as he follows beside the gnome. "Lets play a game to pass the time. How about Bam, Shabam, Bigkabam?"

But...um...Dragon..Sir, mam, you know what I mean, I dont think its physically possible for a single dragon like yourself to carry all of us. Can you summon more of your kind perhaps? And Kiwi, It would be quite the experiment to make a giant gnomeflinger, but unfortunitly, I think we are lacking in time for me to experiment....but I think I may start making notes on it now!!"HEY!

"Well lads, it seems as though we are off to Neraka to face the final God and get the scroll! Then, after that, this quest will finally be over. I'm not going to promise we'll all make it out unharmed. We all know what dwells in Neraka." Says Insano. "But now is not the time for that. I want to be known as a hero that saved the world from odd Gods! Then, I want to return to Mt. Nevermind with all my reasearch notes and show the guilds what I have learned in the world! Now, lets fly to Neraka" With that, the dragon that Insano is riding on leapt into the air, and headed toward the great evil city of Neraka.

Realizing it was time to go, Mazithra clasped his hands together and began whispering a prayer to Branchala. A minute later, an enormous griffon soared through the air, landing directly in front of Mazithra. He scratched it's huge eagle-like head, and climbed on. He whispered his desire to follow the dragons into the ear of the griffon, then waited for them to start.Girl- " This is sick! Think about what your doing!"
