Mirror
06/29/2002 11:27 AM

The half elf with the white robes was the first to speak. Her features belonged more to her mother than her father, as did her eyes. Their reflective surface, though not as almond shaped as her mothers, deffinately marked them both of the same family lineage.

"Hello Mother."

Her voice was soft and melodius to the kagonesti's ears, and as she continued to speak, the half elf in the long, flowing white robes walked forward and touched her mother on the shoulder.

"I have waited a long time to see you, we all have."

With that, tears sprang up in both set's of refelctive optic orbs and the two clung onto each other as if their lives depended on it.

"My child, my Mirril, I am so happy to see you." she said, stroking long white hair that hung down the others back, "You are grown and have chosen the same path as your mother, I am so proud! But you said 'we', is your brother and sister here aswell?"

"I am here Mother, too."

With that another female half elf stepped forward, clad all in red robes, the robes of nutral magic. Her skin and features were darker, belonging more to their father, but the eyes were still the same, still the same reflective surface.

"Morgana, come to me darling, let your mother see you!"

The other female walked forward so that her mother could inspect her further. Her long hair, almost the same crimson colour as her robe was perched high up on her head, piled together in a bun that looked as if it had been slept in. Her mother smiled,

"You have inherited your mothers uncontrolable side, I see. And from looking into your eyes and the colour of your robes, you have inherited your fathers level-headedness, and his wish for balance. Although he did not take the robes that you have chosen, he would have been proud of you, just as I am. Come here Morgana, let me hold you my child."

With that the two held each other tightly, Morgana's head burried in her mothers shoulder in an unnacustomed show of raw emotion. Mirril stood off to the side, taking the scene in, a serene smile on her face and tears still springing forth from her eyes. Then, another figure came into view.

"What about me, Mother dear?!"

A young man, the same age as the other two, stepped forward. He was clad in the dark robes of black magic, the robes that his father had chosen to wear. As his mother looked at him, she was reminded so strongly of his father. His dark hair hung in long braids down his back, his skin the same ebony skin that his mother had found so enchanting on his father. His features mirrored that of his paternal parentage, up to one small point........his eyes. It was the eyes that linked them, and it was this small fact that marked all of these children as her's
His mother was a bit slow to answer. That could be his father standing there, she thought to herself, but for the eyes. There was something else about him, something that she had not sensed in the others.........but that was soon forgotten as she remembered that he was her son.

"Triton, you are so like your father, and not just in name. I have waited so long to see you!"

She went to him, to hold him like she had held the others, but he stepped back, not wanting her near him, a snarl constricting his features.

"So, Mother, tell me this..........why did you abandon us? You left us, burried in that cell in that hedge mage for Nuitari knows what to find us! You left us there, cold, alone.............why?!"

His mother stopped in her tracks,

"Son, you were dead! All three of you were! I miscarried you 13 weeks early, you had no chance of survival! I didn't want to leave you there, but..........."

"You didn't want to leave us, but you did! Just like you let our father leave you! And why was that mother? What made him leave? Tell us the truth that we both know!"

"I............You're father and I...............We had some differences of opinions...............I didn't mean............"

"You didn't mean to what, Mother? You didn't mean to be a whore, is that it?! You didn't mean to cheat on our father, you didn't mean to just take up with that other mage, what was his name, Justin? while my father was away from your side?!!! You make me sick! You're nothing but a WHORE!!!!"

Her tears were flowing freely now, but these were not tears of joy any longer,

"Triton, no...............it wasn't like that......."

"Wasn't it, Mother?"

"Morgana, not you too?!"

"What, you expected me to just glaze this whole thing over like it didn't matter, like you did to us when we were born! Triton is right, you're nothing but a whore!"

"Morgana, it's not like he say's! I didn't abandon you! There was nothing I could do to keep you! You were dead when I gave birth to you!"

"We're we mother? Is that why we are standing before you right now?!"

She turned to her white haired daughter and looked at her.

"But this isn't real, this is just a dream!"

"Is it Mother?!"




Mirror woke up with a start. Sweat soaked the shift that she wore to sleep in and had plastered her hair to her head in damp ringlets. She didn't know what to think. How could her children be alive?! And why would they act like that towards her! It didn't make sense! They we're dead when she gave birth to them!!!! What was happening!!!
Gaia! That's it, Gaia would know what to do! She must find her!!!!

With that, she ran out of her room and down to the bar, still dressed in her night-shift and bounded up to her cleric friend, who was sitting at the bar eating one of the first proper meals she had in ages.

"Gaia, help me! My babies! They hate me! They think I'm a whore! They don't understand!!!" she rambled, clingin onto a startled Gaia's white robe for what seemed like an eternity.

Gaia turned and looked at her friend. Mirror was terrified! And what was this she was going on about, her children?! Mirror didn't have any children apart from....................
"It was just a dream Mi, that's all it was! Just calm down......."

"It wasn't a dream, they we're there, all three of them, and they told me it wasn't a dream!" she said, almost screeched. She now had Gaia by the collar of her robe and was shaking her, trying to make her understand.

Gaia tried again, "Mirror, listen to me, it was a dream! Your children are dead Mirror, they died in that cell in the hedge maze when you gave birth to them. There was nothing anyone could do about it........."

"THEY'RE NOT DEAD!!!! Why won't you listen to me?!!!!!"

With that Gaia began to gently stroke her friends sweat soaked hair and mumbled a soft prayer to Mishkail under her breath that sent Mirror into an almost instant, and Gaia hoped dreamless, slumber. Mirror fell to the floor within an instant of Gaia saying her prayer.

The cleric fell to her kagonesti friends side and looked around at the rest of the silent, stunned patrons. "Someone, please, help me to get her back up to her room. Please!!"


OOC: Oooookay, anyone still awake?!!! :) :) :) :) :) Right, I'm not a hundred percent sure where this one is going, but if y'all RPG along, it will work itself out!!! :) I have a few ideas, but I need more people to help me out here!!!!

"So, Mother, tell me this..........why did you abandon us? You left us, burried in that cell in that hedge mage for Nuitari knows what to find us! You left us there, cold, alone.............why?!"

Glimmer snapped awake...her gold eyes locked on the four eggs that her tail curled around. "but I haven't....." she muttered sleepily and stared uncomprehending at her clutch. She blinked and looked around the Crystal Lair....Navare wasn't there....but it wasn't unusual to see him leave for days, or weeks at a time.

"what was that all about?" she muttered softly, and stood. She nudged the eggs gently, rolling them over, keeping them close together. there where four..one of shimmering white crystal...one of gleaming black, and two silver-gray. "who could've...." she said when suddenly a vauge vision asulted her...a vision of a face...a friend...a very familiar face.

"Mirror?" she said softly, and layed down her enchantments on the clutch. she wove the magic tightly and layered it...so that there where sheilds within sheilds....and crawled out of the lairs opening. She weaved her magics again and then turned to the north....where the pull was coming from. "Mirror....." she said, and raised her wings....she knew Navare would come to find her when he didn't find her in the lair....and flew as fast as she could....

using her magic to augment her flight...she made it to where the pull was strongest in just a few minutes...and landed outside the villiage...she saw the inn, and shifted her form. Kalia straightened her silver robes, and patted down her silver hair...and walked to the inn. she looked around curiously...wondering where Mirror could be...

she turned and saw a young woman holdinga an elf...Mirror!! "Mirror!" kalia cried, and ran to help her friend..."What happened to her??" she asked, frantic...it had been years since she had seen her friend...and her worry was evident

Terjon stood up and stomped over to the woman who had asked for help, who looked up as the huge shadow of the minotaur fell over her.

"You said you needed help getting her back to her room?"

The massive warrior picked up the unconcious kagonesti woman and stood up, his horns grazing the roof of the inn, then he looked back at Gaia,

"Well I need to know which room is her's, I'm not psychic."

Terjon stepped in the direction of the stairs to the rooms, the light from the lanterns in the inn making strange highlights flicker over his obony fur, he looked back at the cleric, waiting for her to lead the way."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

OOC: Well, can't let Gaia go and have an adventure without Tay, now can we? ;):D;)

Taylor, who had fallen asleep at one of the inn's booths, was awakened when Mirror yelled. He came over to help Gaia with her burden.

"What was that about? Why was Mirror yelling? Who's not dead?"

Golden eyes winked open in the shadows as a young woman looked up from a book in her hands. Black curls framed a face of one in her twenties, yet had the worldly look of one that had been around the block a few times, so to speak. Her gray fox companion stood up and trotted over to the huge minotaur, sniffing inquisitively, with an expression of concern for the unconscious Mirror. The blood drained from her human friend's face as the lady rose to her feet. This was the girl she'd seen in the last tavern she stayed at, with the cleric!
Ebonymist struggled inwardly with herself. This was none of her concern, especially considering what she really was and the fact that quite a lot of people would rather hack off the warrior's hands than have her touch Mirror. But she couldn't help feeling concerned for this poor Kagonesti- especially since she herself had miscarried not so long ago.

Kalia was still looking to Gaia for an explanation...ignoring the others that had come upon the scene she had glared breifly at the minotar's lack of curtesy, and barely acknowledged the dark haired girl.

"In the name of the platinum father...what has happened?" She breathed...remembering the malice she felt in her dream...her mind shifted to her clutch..and worried about their safty...Though sometimes the pain is part of love

Ebonymist's golden eyes shifted for a moment to Kalia, and she shrak backwards almost imperceptably. That one reeks of ther Platinum Father, she thought to herself. Perhaps there is more to her than I first thought. If that is so, I must certainly have the same effect on her, even if only a small amount, for I've never lied about my alligence to the Dark Lady. She took a step forwards, curious about just what had happened to the Kagonesti.

Kalia had indeed noticed the Dark Aura surrounding the woman...just as ebonymist noticed hers...but kalia, though the last of the true daughters of paladine, the first metalics being her sisters...it was Gilean who had created her...and it was the balance, and worry for her friend that tempered her response to the woman's presence.Though sometimes the pain is part of love

Ku Y'leh stood just behind Kalia, though her presense was hidden by forgiving shadows. Had she stepped into the light, the half-elf would have perhaps shocked the gathered or inspired thoughts of the poor, the starved, the beaten...

Life had not been kind to her, and time had done nothing for her sense of closure. Her skin hung in constant pallor, her obsidian hair had lost its sheen, and her silver eyes had turned a silent grey. She spoke only when needed, her lack-luster blue robes hanging off a thin and bruised body. Years and still the bruises hadn't vanished--not that she wanted them too. She didn't wish to speak either...she wished for nothing but the shadows and to be free of social contact.

Kalia had saved her...hadn't allowed her to go lose herself in a dark forest in the middle of nowhere. She was greatful, but bitterly so. She allowed it only because traveling on the road with Kalia kept down her chances of meeting with Fury...

Oh, Fury...she swayed slightly where she stood. The one disapointment, the one regret.

Her eyes were dull, blank...only her grim facade said that she was ready and willing to stand up for her only friend.

Even if from within shadow.

((OOC: Okay...me and Kalia kinda placed this thread timewise after the Seduction...for anyone that doesn't know--especially cuz half of it hasn't been written yet :D--Ku was a slave to the demoness Akhsunamun for a while before the demoness's own body was destroyed and she took the half-elf's. Did someone call an exsorcist? Anyway, thus, her current state. More or less.

Welcome back, Mirror. And for you --> :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

06/29/2002 10:40 PM

Gaia looked around at the party that had gathered. Her eyes fell on Kalia and she immedeately ran to her for support, her arms flinging around her neck. The worry of the past few days had finally taken their hold, and she began to sob silently.

"Kalia, I'm not too sure what's going on. All I know is that, just recently, Mirror has not been herself. She has been having nightmares, but, up until today, has always maintained that she couldn't remember what they were about. But today................she just lost it!
She came down here and started to shake me, telling me that they were not dead, that her children hated her and called her a whore. But you know as well as I do that they were dead! They were born in that hedge maze and there was nothing we could do to save them! I'm soworried about her, she has been through so much just recently, I'm scared that this is the beginning of the end for her!"

She lay her head on Kalia's shoulder and sobbed bitterly. She felt a familiar presence at her side and looked down to shee Tay, her kender friend, standing there. It was the first time she had ever seen a kender upset, and she hoped she would never have to see it again.
Then she remembered Mirror, who had been lifted by the minotaur stood off to her side. She noticed another two women there too, who both looked familiar, but her concern for Mirror overwhelmed any introductions that she might have performed. She composed herself briefly and stood up straight, turning towards the minotaur she said,

"Her room is up here. I'll show you."

She led the way up a flight of stairs, along a corridor, and to the third room on the left. Gaia was surprised how gentle the Minotaur was as he lay her down on the bed.
Gaia looked to the others.

"There's something else I should show you."

She moved over to a small table that resided in the west corner of the room and ppicked up a thick bundle of parchment.

"As some of you may know, Mirror like to draw, it's kind of a hobby. Well, just recently, she's been drawing a lot more that she used to, and all the pictures have had the same theme to them. And all we're drawn after she slept."

Gaia opened the pad. Mirror's speciality was people, and the first picture that Gaia turned to was that of three half elves, two female and one male, but the looks on their faces were not of happiness, peace, or serenity, but of hate and anger.

"This is the first picture she drew of her triplets, about three days ago. They continue........."

She turned the next page, and the three figures were there again, except now they had evil laughs on their lips and flames engulfed them.
The next picture showed the three surrounding a hunkered over figure, each looking as if they were about to pounce on it. The male one had a small dagger in his hand. It was obvious that the figure was Mirror.
Gaia handed the pad to Kalia,

"They go on like this, each picture centering around the triplets and each piture depicting a more violent scene. Each scene of violence is directed towards Mirror. There are 50 leaves of parchment in that book, and in three days she has filled most of them. I just don't know what to do!" she said, her eyes pleading the others in the room for help.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

(OOC; Ermm, what kind of level is every one's charecters at? I need to know since Terjon is a druid and his level seriously affects his abilities.)
IC;
Terjon layed the sleepng Mirror down on her bed, then looked down at the pad that Gaia held. The drawings were of a good standerd, but there was something odd about the three recurring figures.

"You mean that they died, that is not the same as being dead. Some may have the ability to attack this Mirror with these images."

The others jumped back as a large viper slithered out from the minotaur's shadow and curled up in the end of the bed. Terjon turned to it and, to the other's suprise, spoke to it,

"Vect, make sure no-one that I do not permit approachs this one."

After a moment's thought Terjon cast a detect poison spell on the sleeping mirror,

"Blast, should have known it wasnt going to be that easy.""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

OOC: Star this may help you ....hope you don't mind though.

IC: Jaric stood on the edge of a cliff, his eyes gazing out over the eastern horizon, but seeing farther.....much farther. His robe of silvery white flapped as the southerly wind passed by, a robe that marked him as a Dream Weaver. An Enchanter of little reknown, his own decision. A voice brushed his mind. He let it in, for it was that of his sister, the Enchantress Vraree, a Dream Weaver like himself.

Brother you have wondered off again.....would you care to tell me were you are headed? She was caring, but didn't like to be left in the dark.

I would love to tell you sister Enchantress, but i know not where i am headed. Only where the voices tell me.

Voices brother? What do you mean? The note of concern was not missed by him.

Worry not, they have not harmed my mind....but they did enter it to speak with me....telling me that i must journey, they come each night to tell me the next step...i feel though that i am near my journeys end thankfully

Enter your mind! Against your wards! That i must say is a feat i thought impossible, even i cannot enter your mind, warding such as yours is not easily broken.

Yes sister, but they have not broken them, merely passed through them some how, although i do not think who ever passed them is even corporial in nature, more spiritual or even devine.

I see....very well....i must leave, those children of mine are running a muck.....

Give my regards to that husband of yours and my darling little nieces.

With love brother.....may the Dreams watch over you

And you sister.

He felt her drift away, mental currents fading, receding back south wards. "She cares too much too often...but i suppose she has a right." He mused thoughtfully. Turning from the cliff edge, he saddled the silvery grey mare behind him and started her into a trot. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,
til the tallow be dust and death's teeth gnash
this one be mine.....

"Argh, is it morning already?" J'mes asked as the commotion woke him up in the next room. "I take a few days vacation from Palanthas, and I can't even get a good night's sleep. Ooh, Hi Gaia. Good morning. What's up?"

Kalia smiled warmly at Gaia and frowned with worry as she stared at Mirror's sketches. "I don't like this Gaia...Mirror is a close friend...I will do whatever I can to help her...." She paused...fingering a black crystal ring on her left hand...her eyes had a faraway look as if she where communticating with someone. She nodded once and smiled.

"...And so will my mate...He is on his way" she said softly, glancing at Ku with worried eyes, and turned back to the sketches. She shuddered as a chill ran up her spine...and the chill apprehension for her own clutch gripped her....

Why Mother???........ Came the echoed, faded voice she heard only a few hours ago. She forced the fear back...knowing that her enchantments on the lair where secure.

Moments later, a Man about 25 or 30 walked into the inn. Everyone silenced their conversations as he walked in to look at him. Several people shrank back from him involinarily. He was tall, with a medium build that hid a deadly strength. He had black hair that reached just past his shoulders...and dark eyes that seemed almost a liquid black. They swept the room, causing some to shrink back from his gaze. He wore robes of the softest black velvet, trimmed in silk. He raised a slender hand, and ran his fingers through his hair. A clear crystal ring glittered brightly on his hand. He tilted his head slightly to the side and looked towards the stairs.

He turned and walked up them, following the corridor till he felt the presence of his mate. He opened the door, his face somber till he saw Kalia...then he smiled. The smile transformed him, the dark sinister aura around him shattered with that single smile.

"Glimmer" He said, using her common dragon name.... Kalia turned and her smiled lit her eyes. "Navare!" she exclaimed, running to his embrace. They held each other, the darkness and the light...two creatures born to opposite worlds, yet they where the first, under Gilean's Guidance to become the first Dragons of Balance.

Separate they where formidable allies to their natural tendencies of Good and Evil, as the Daughter of Paladine, and the Son of Takhisis.....But, Together, They where and unstoppable force for balance. Navare was the first to end the embrace...and turned to the group.

"What's goin on?" His voice was as deep and smooth as the velvet he wore.Though sometimes the pain is part of love

Gaia looked at the handsome newcomer and smiled warmly. She smiled in confusion as J'mes walked in. The cleric then turned to Navere and began to explain what was happeneing.


Meahwile..............


"You didn't think you'd be able to leave us again like that, did you mother. You'll never be able to abandon us again, we will make sure of that."


"Triton, this is just a dream. You can't be real, all three of you are dead!"


"Well, if we're not real, then this can't be either!"


A hot poker was pressed on to Mirror's exposes arm, and slowly drawn down it from her elbow to her wrist, a large, nasty burn forming and alredy beginning to fester.



Back in the room..........



Gaia spun round as she heard a cry come from the bed where Mirror lay. The kagonesti was doubled in pain, and they all watched in morbid facination as a large red and angry burn began to form on her lower arm, running from elbow to wrist. Gaia panicked.

"Mirror, wake up!" she screamed, shaking her friend bodily, pinching her ear lobe, even slapping her a couple of times. Mirror wouldn't wake up.

"What is happening?! Someone, please, help her!!!!"Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Taylor, seeing the burn on Mirror's arm, immediately started going through his pockets looking for a certain item while Gaia tried to wakt Mirror up.

Gaia screamed, "What is happening?! Someone, please, help her!!!!"

Taylor, giving a shout of truimph, pulled a ring out of a pocket and rushed over and put it on Mirror's arm. He turned to Gaia to quickly explain, "Ring of Regeneration. Won't heal new wounds or keep her from feeling new ones, but it will heal any new wounds she gets, so we have time to figure out what in the Abyss is going on."

"Hey, I got an idea. I'll use my Detect Magic lens. It will let me see if she's under some type of magical spell." Taylor took a small round piece of glass with metal around it, and a short wire coming off to hold it, and put it to his eye, then looked at Mirror.

The voices lead Jaric to his destination. He looked around, observed the area for a few moments. To get a better idea of the place he engaged his Dream Sense.....pain struck him. He reeled from it, shut his mind just as quickly. He sagged in relief. "Such .....disturbance.....overwhelming almost." Letting his mind open but a fraction, he followed the direction of the sensation. He left his horse outside and entered the dwelling, stumbling, becoming numb with the feelings he felt.

Coming across an assortment of people, he ask the one nearest him. "Tell me friend, what is wrong, someone.....",he noticed Mirror. Brushing passed he stared at her. Opened his mind just a inch more. The thoughts and emotions dizzied him. He attempted to gain control of himself. "Please, would you allow me to help...." Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Terjon moved back slightly , the unnatural stench of the three dragons was filling his nostrils. The room was filling with humans at a rather alarming rate, if he wasn't careful he would end up thinking like them, thought the minotaur.

"One thing I can tell you, this is far from natural. This Mirror should be sealed off from any magics."

The minotaur stomped over to the bed and looked down at the slowly healing burn on the woman's arm.

"Has she come into contact with, or possesion of any magical artifacts recently? Especialy if they are of dubious origin?""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

TayJK
07/01/2002 12:01 PM

OOC: The burn would not be slowly healing because of the ring. It only heals wounds inflicted after being put on, but before.

"Let's see, we were near the Scrolls. I think that would fit the describtion of 'powerful magical artifact of dubious origin' rather well."

Jaric felt out of place amoung the group of people. He didn't take the time to read them but he was open to their emotions, one in particular held a great concern. To this one(kalia) he opened his mind and directed his Dream Sense, brushing her surface thoughts only so slightly.

Will you allow me to help her....i may be able to do something, perhaps set up wards against....whatever is intruding upon her mind. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Terjon frowned slightly, simple scrolls wouldn't have this kind of effect would they? No, the minotaur could sense a mind behined this, and an organic one at that.

"I do not think that that was it. Are there any stones or gems that she would have have had on her person in the recent past?"

The minotaur looked back at the burn and realised that the apparent healing had been nothing more than a trick of the light, so he began to cas a Heal spell on the wound."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

My thanks...., he turned to Gaia..."I will do what i can."

Engaging his Dream Sense, he touch Mirror's mind and reeled with the pain, lost in the swirling clouds of emotions and power. Such anger, hatred, this was an outside force. He entered deeper, the heart of her mind were she lay, frightend and held bound by these....whatever they were, her children? Perhaps simply a trouble making mage of some sort.

He set up wards. He could see the lines of power running through her mind, over it, under it....bringing chaos to a balanced mind. The core of her being, a shimmering light of wonder and beauty, all that she holds dear, loving images of freinds and loved ones, but also the darker deeds, held here to maintain a balance. Seeting up his own mystical wards around this, a net made of magic and the mind. He grabbed hold of the forgein lines, balled them up, powerful, to touch them, Jaric shook with concentration. Sweat poured down him, soaked his otherwise splenant robes, drenching his hair. Another warding around this entity.

Done. Held in check for now, but not long, he could do only so much against whatever that was. The powers of a Dream Weaver were obviously not enough to destroy this presence. He withdrew from her mind.

"How long have i been in there?" Rubbing his head rythmically. "Just over an hour i think." Someone answered, but he knew not who. Jaric sighed. "I have done what i can for her mind, she will just have to rest. It was a traumatic experience that i must say, never has a mind that i have crossed been so...so....well basically screwed up. Whoever or whatever if interfering with her, it has to be stopped. I can't trace it and my wards will not hold for long against it. Nor can it be removed. It is Mirror's own fears and doubts that feed the power entering her mind, if removed she loses them for ever, unbalancing her thought and mind."

"Wheather her children are alive or not i cannot tell either, but i have warded her centre, her focal point in her mind, those wards should hold for longer, she will not have any disturbing dreams or visions, but watch her just the same. I must rest myself, heal my mind, by then she should awaken aswell." Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

OOC: Right, Tay, of course you see magic!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) What else would explain this apart from maybe Mirror going mad. Maybe she is, but only because of what is going on in her head.

OK, It's up to you guys to come up with an evil mage/god/force/person that is taking over Mirror's thoughts, and also a reason why. Are Mirror's kids alive, or is it the work of an evil mage? Or is their existence the result of an evil mage digging up their corpses yadda yadda yadda.

Terjon looked at Jaric and snorted slightly, then a thoughtful look came into his eyes,

"Of course! A powerful Dream Weaver could do this, as could a powerful Mage, a Dragon or some Druids. Though they must be pretty powerful if a Dream Weaver in close proximity can't force them out.
Still, given enough time, the Druid way might work for this kind of attack.If I was to do this, I would not produce the dreams myself like a Dream Weaver or Mage would, I would plant the idea into Mirror's subconcious, so deep she cannot find it herself.
Then, after a time the subconcious ideas would surface somehow, either as delusions, dreams or hallucinations, the technique isn't used often as it is unpredicatable and usually takes a long time to take effect."

The minotaur looked out of the window, there was a forest not too far from the inn, and just past there was a Druid Grove.

"If we can get this Mirror to the Grove a way north of here, I might be able to combine our Dream Weaver's abilities with the power I can draw from the Stones. Much as I wish we could take the forest route, we must take Mirror with us, and it would be much faster to go through Ashclam, which lies to the weast, thn head northeast along Ranger's Way. Then we only have a short distance of forest to get her through."

(OOC; Ashclam is a medium/small city that I made up off the top of my head, Ranger's Way is a track used for travel through the forset. Just to let you know, since you chars would, I assume know a bit about the area. Anyone with any local knowledge would know of the Druid Grove, but not it's location.)"Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Taylor tries to recall what the old White Robe who raised him told him, at various times, about induced nightmares.

"Let's see, besides what Mr. Minatour here said, it could also be a linger curse of a magical item, the Scrolls being the obvious canidate. It could also be a curse of a magical item she still has. Or perhaps of some magical potion she drunk. Some of those can induce nightmares for weeks at a time."

Taylor thinks for a second, then says, "But then again, none of those would explain her wounds. Perhaps someone is torturing someone they magically linked to her, and she is taking the wounds for, or maybe with that person. That's unlikely though. It's hard enough to create one of those links with a willing participant, let alone an unwilling one. Not to mention that the Conclave had outlawed that before I was born."

Taylor's thoughts return to the moment, and he responds to Terjon. "Your right though, bringing her to that Druid's Grove wouldn't hurt. What is it anyways?"

"Yes, i agree, this idea of yours may prove benificial.

"My name is Terjon, not 'Mr Minotaur' thank you very much."
He looked out of the window again,
"And in answer to your question, the Druid Grove is a base of sorts, you may liken it to a temple. It is where a Druid enclave makes it's residence, although only a few will live there all the time, most will roam the surrounding woods in the company of their animal companions. It is also the seat of power for a local Archdruid. the one nearby is run by an Archdruid by the name of Thalosa."

"Well? Do we go to the Grove or do we sit around here trying to work out which of the million and one possibilities this is?""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

07/03/2002 11:22 AM

Gaia was paying little if no attention to what was being said within the group. She just knew that they would be Mirror's best chance for survival. Not wanting to use up too much of her clerical powers so as to reserve her strength, she began to tend to the burn on Mirror's arm, removing some salve that her kagonesti companion kept in her pack, and spreading it thickly over the wound before wrapping a much used and re-used bandage over the top of it that she had removed from the same pack.
When Gaia had finished, she noticed that Mirror was not writhing about as much, and her face was not as contorted. She was obviously feeling some benifit from the dream weavers ministrations, but they were not working to their full extent.
She placed a nimble hand on Mirror's feavered brow, and could immeadeatly feel her friends pain, such was the bond that the two shared. She turned to those present,

"Whatever we do, we need to do it quickly. Although the dream weaving powers of this man here have helped some, they do not work to their full extent. She is still suffering in whatever place she is in, and it won't be long before the bonds that were put in place are broken."

Gaia watched as the kagonesti's eyes moved rapidly underneath her closed eye lids, showing that she was still very much in a state of dreaming, and she showed no sign of waking up.

"If we are to move her anywhere thoough, she will need to be carried. I have a feeling that she won't be waking up any time soon."

She turned to the Minotaur. "You're suggestion, about the Druid grove, sounds like a good one. I think we should head in that direction first. Oh and one more thing," she extended a small hand and clasped his large, ham like one tightly, "Thankyou." she smiled at him. She didn't need to say any more to the giant, he knew what she meant. Thankyou for helping an elf.



* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Mirror cowered in the corner of her mind, retreating as far away as she could. The three figures that were being held by bonds that shone purely, were not her children. The looked like her chldren, but they weren't. They couldn't be! Her children were dead. Well, that's what she kept repeatring to herself, over and over again, as if it were some kind of mantra. She deffinately wasn't sure that she believed what she was saying, but the other alternative was unthinkable.

Each of her triplets strained against their bonds, like hunting dogs on the scent of a deer that had not been allowed to take part in the chase.

"Just wait until we're free of these bonds mother!"

"You're not my children.............."

"You thought that pain was bad, it's noting to what we will inflict on you!"

"My children are dead............."

"You'll wish you were dead!"

"MY CHILDREN ARE DEAD!!!"

She sat huddled in that corner, flinching at every insult and threat that was hurled at her, and wished that she would just wake up............................................Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Terjon looked down at the slender hand that had grasped his.
"Thankyou."
then he saw the smile, he had to try very hard to resist snarling. They thought he was one of them, they thought he was with them. He would of course have to protect them whilst he was eliminating this unnatural power, that was a matter of honour, but he was here to uphold the laws of nature, not to play elf-friend.

He stomped heavily over to the bed and picked up the unconcious Mirror as if she was nothing more than a feather, then he carefuly descended the stairs, which creaked threateningly under his step. He walked out of the inn, and into a fierce lashing of rain, he grunted
"This is no good for the injured one to travel in."
Without further explanation he waved the hand that wasn't suppourting Mirror in a strange gesture, within moments the sky had cleared and the sun was beaming down, yet the air retained it's humidity, a remineder of what had been but a moment ago.

Terjon spotted a coach across the street from the inn and stomped up, opeed the door and layed Mirror on one of the plush velevet seats. The driver came up to him and coughed,
"Hey hornhead, you can't do that."
Terjon looked down at the human,
"I believe I just did."
"Look 'friend' you best leave this coach, 'cause we are using it."
Terjon smashed the man across the street with a backhanded blow,
"Not any more manling."
One of the coach guards drew a sword and charged the minotaur, Terjon kicked out with one of his hooved feet, the iron-like hoof catching the man in the ribs and leaving him broken on the path. Terjon looked at the other two guards and lowered his horns,
"You are going to leave. It is up to you how."

(OOC;A bit extreme I know, but Terjon believes in the "might is right" philosohy of the minotaur culture in general. Oh yeah, and just so you know, if any clerics Detect Alignment they might have a bit of a suprise. If they think he's a good guy that is.....)"Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Kalia watched the minotaur leave, and restrained herself from laughing. She then looked at Gaia... "I want to try something when we get there...I may be able to enter her dreams with Navare's help...I can try to reach her...try to see what this menace really is."

Navare rested his hand on Kalia's shoulder and she looked up at him, his dark eyes where reassuring...and he then turned to stare at the elf...he had met her only once...and not that long ago...but he was willing to help her...if only for the sake of his mate.In your dreams magical thoughts

Gaia looked up at the two dragons in human form. "Thankyou friends. If there is anything I can do to help you with whatever plan it is that is forming in your mind, just say the word, and I'll do it."

She then turned to the rest of the group, shouldering her own pack as well as Mirror's, along with the kagonesti's sketch book. "Now come, we must go. Any of you who do not wish to come, for whatever reason, must say so now. It's your choice, and because we do not know what we're up against, it could be very dangerous. So please, if you have any doubts, any fears, just stay here, and we will see you when we get back."

"It's your choice, and because we do not know what we're up against, it could be very dangerous. So please, if you have any doubts, any fears, just stay here, and we will see you when we get back."

Taylor laughed, while following Gaia and Terjon "Very dangerous. You and Mirror facing that New Magic God was dangerous. Our charge against the Lionmen in Flotsam was dangerous. Me jumping off of a dragon to save a plumeting comrade is dangerous. Pretty much our entire visit to Neraka was dangerous. Gaia, we've faced dangerous things before together."

Taylor stops suddenly, remembering something important he left behind in the inn booth he was sleeping in. "Insano!" He rushes back into the inn, tries to wake up Insano. He doesn't succeed. Then an idea comes to him. He places a rope around Insano's chest, and ties it off. Insano raises off the bench we was lying on, and Taylor and the floating, sleeping Insano hurries to catch up with Gaia.

Terjon watched as the other guards ran off, then left the door to the noble's carriage open so that the others could enter. He left Vect on the seat next to Mirror, he knew that the viper was the best bodguard the Kangonasti could have. He raised an eyebrow as a floating gnome followed the one called Taylor out of the inn, but declined to comment. He looked at the fragile coach, shook his head nad began to shimmer, by the time that the others arrived, he had changed form into that of a snake and slithered up the steps and into the carriage, where he coiled up in the ceiling rack,

"If one of thessse foolsss triesss to put their coatsss on top of me...."

He heard a hissing laugh from Vect by way of a reply,

"Prahapsss, massster if you lossst sssome weight, thisss would not be a problem."

Terjon hissed a laugh, he spent almost as much time in snake form as minotaur form now, and the serpentine form felt natural to him now.

(OOC; Tay, hate to tell you this, but the picture of the minotaur in the new Monster Manual has hooves, and that's the one that I'm basing Terjon on. Although I did read somewhere about the Minotaur Leauge that there were two breeds of minotaur, one hooved and the other not.)"Ah, they have a cave troll....."

TayJK

OOC; Tay, hate to tell you this, but the picture of the minotaur in the new Monster Manual has hooves

OOC: Trust the text, not the picture. In the old Monsterous Manual, the six-fingered Arcane (a tall, blue skin humaniod, now called something else) had only five fingers. I also refer you to Kaz the Minatour. He saw a track that wasn't quite a paw. Definitely not a human's. Possibily a goblin's or a troll's. Turned out to be a minotaur's. Also, why would a minotaur lower his head to charge, when it would leave him vulnerable to attacks from the side and rear. Just looking down their snouts at the humans a few feet lower then them usually works, expecially on mere hired hands.

OOC: BTW, it seems you have had more D&D RP experience then DL, experience, and since no one answered your earlier question about level, level has very little to do with DL, RP or novels. Decide on a level, use it. BTW, Taylor might be using items who's function you might recognize from various 3rd ed. sources, but I take all my info from my mind and 2nd ed. Since much has changed, I hope we don't have any mistaken assumption cases.

IC: Taylor is leaving the inn when he sees Terjon change into a snake. After he gets into the carriage and settles Insano in the seat next to him, he looks up at Terjon and says, "Hey, that's pretty neat. I can do something like that with one of the magical items Mirror once gave me. She called it the Cat's Bracelet. It changes me into a silver housecat with reflective eyes, like Mirror's. It also established a familiar-like bond between us....." Taylor stopped talking as an idea came to him.

"Hey, maybe if I use the Cat's Bracelet to communicate with Mirror." Taylor reaches into a pocket. "I just hope I don't get stuck as a cat again," he muttered as he put on the bracelet. Suddenly, where there was once a kender, there was now a silver housecat with strange eyes. Taylor the Cat's thoughts turned inwards as he sought Mirror's mind....

"My children are dead. My children are dead. My children are dead," along with despair was the only thing he got. Taylor then got an idea, and a ring appeared on one of Taylor's forelimbs, appearing to be a bracelet compared to Taylor's diminuative size. (OOC: Ring of ESP, BTW)

Taylor again tried to reach out to Mirror's mind again, and this time he succeeded into entering her thoughts. But then he felt his mind being sucked into her's, as his cat body collapsed....

****************

Suddenly appearing in the space that was Mirror's mind, was a silver cat. The first thing he saw was Mirror, huddled in a corner. Taylor immediately noticed she appeared pale, her face drawn, as if she hadn't eaten or slept in a long time. Taylor then heard a taunting voice behind him, and turned and saw three elves, two females, one wearing white robes, the other red, and a male, wearing black robes. They were also all restrained by bonds of light.

Taylor noticed something peculiar about all of them, then noticed that he and they shared the same eyes, all of which were focused on him (except his own, of course. Taylor had tried before to focuse his eyes on himself, but it gave him a rather sever headache).

Something his old mentor had told him came to his mind: "The mind is a tricky place. Not everything is as it looks, and most everything is symbols of one sort or another. But still, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

From that, he quickly figured out that the bonds were the barrior Terjon had set up, and the reason for Mirror's appearance was her mental state was so bad.

Turning to Mirror, he said, "Mirror, what is going on? Who are these people? They are obviously related to you, but I know they're not your children, at least that's what I heard through our bond before."

OOC: If we need me out of her head, Mirror's 'kids' can beat me up in the same way they did Mirror, and Gaia or Terjon can pull my mind back to my body, or the 'kids' can just plain kick me out.
OOC: Also, the kids could just be s symbol of some suppressed part of Mirror's mind, or perhaps of someone else's mind that hitched a ride in Mirror's head.

OOC: Isn't it amazing with the stuff I can come up with after midnight? I originally was just going to tell Terjon about the Cat's Bracelet, and the 'bond' it establishes with Mirror, and ended up with this. Oh, and Terjon, a simple Dispel Magic won't change me back to a kender. The Cat's Bracelet once got an inadvertant dose of God's Power, making it pretty powerful in it's own, limited way.Taylor Magetaunter

Ku Y'leh's silver eyes focused on Navare before shifting back to Kalia. The dragons knew perfectly well that the half-elf would use any of her own magic to aid Mirror, but at the moment had nothing to add.

She stood still for a long moment, toying with the ring on her finger. L'Nakia might have had an idea but the magical tiger hadn't been seen on this plane for some time. Something was keeping him away--though whether it was the mage herself or something foul, nobody knew.

A rush of cerulean appeared just over the trees and for a moment it looked as if a mass of color was falling from the sky. The shapeless bundle resolved into a bird, a slender phoenix. It flew lopsided as if one wing could not fully extend...it's feathers were dull and broken. It's slender--more like painfully thin--body nearly overshot it's mark, as if it couldn't handle it's own weight.

Ku Y'leh looked dully at the bird. Her arm had lifted automatically to catch the unruely bird and now she swatted at it as if it were a fly. The phoenix responded with a painful nip to the half-elf's hand.

Ku frowned. "Tantiata, leave," she commanded flatly. The bird responded with a glare and took off--not to leave but to check on Mirror. Returning after a moment, Tantiata landed ackwardly on Ku Y'leh's shoulder and gave a mournful chirp.

Ku Y'leh looked at Kalia and pointed towards Mirror. "The cat," was all she said. She held out a hand, palm open, and a small blue globe appeared, fed by the tired phoenix.

Mirror looked towards the cat. She was a bit taken aback at first, wondering if this was all some weird part of her subconcious again, or if it was actually real, solid, something she could grab hold of. She lowered her head down so that her eyes were at the same level as the cats, and when her own image was reflected in the eyes of the cats as clearly as looking into a mirror, she understood.

"Tay, what are you doing here? How did you get here? It's not safe to be here! The bonds won't hold them for long, and when that happens..........." she trailed off and sunk back into her corner, mumbling to herself, incoherant words coming out of her mouth.

She came back to the present when Tay walked over to her and nuzzled into her thigh, trying to break her from her revire. She looked down at the cat, and suddenly realised that this might be her only chance of getting some help. If she could tell Tay what was going on, then he would be able to go back and tell the others, and they might be able to get her out of here.

"Tay, these people................they're my children............but they can't be.........my children are dead! Someone is doing this to me Tay........but I don't know who........help me!!!!!"

OOC: Sorry it took so long, had getting-ready-to-leave stuff to do. OK, you want to see Taylor the Cat beat up? Well, he might be, but he won't go down without a fight.

Taylor tried his best to comfort Mirror, rubbing up against her reassuringly and trying to send soothing thoughts through their bond. But then suddenly, the bonds hold the half-elfs (as they actually were half-elfs, Taylor thought, noticing that their ears weren't as pronounced as Mirror's. He wondered who the father was, and hoped it wasn't Tantric) shattered as if they never were. Taylor remembered that Jaric had set up a second set of bonds, but he didn't have time to remeber details since the half-elfs were advancing on Mirror. Taylor, knowing Mirror could put up little, if any, defence of his own, was determined to hold off the trio as long as he could.

OOC: As Knackk said in Kaz the Minatour, 'One of the most overlooked traits of kender is there unwavering loyalty to their friends.'

Taylor bounded once to build up speed, then leapt, fore-claws first, at the closest figure, the Black Robe. He was able to leave a set of scratchs on his face before we was swatted away. The Black Robe turned to punish this feline who had hurt him while the Red and White Robes continued to advance on Mirror.

Taylor tried to summon one of his Necklace of Flying, not expecting it to work, since this wasn't the physical world, and it no item appeared. The Black Robe started to reach down to grab him by his neck, and Taylor leapt at the hand, trying to force him to draw it back or be bitten. He wasn't going to be able to, since the hand was too high. But even as he thought this he flew up and bit the Black Robe's hand in the palm where the pointer finger and thumb meets. (OOC: He gets the powers, but not the items. One item at a time though) Taylor let go, and flew at the White Robe. She saw him coming, however, and caught him by his front paws, quickly breaking one a split-second before the hind legs scratched her.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

While everyone watched the sphere, witnessing the fight between Mirror's 'children' and the Cat, they heard a sickenning snap as one Taylor's forelegs was bent at an unnatural angle, obviously broken..

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Taylor cried out in agony as he landed on his broken leg, then fell over. He desperately tried to get up as the Red Robe was about to backhand Mirror.

But as soon as the Red Robe's hand came within a few inches of Mirror, it stopped dead, hitting a now-barely visible shield of light, which again became invisible almost as soon as everyone saw it. The Red Robe tried again, with the same results.

Now Taylor remembered what the second set of wards were. They were set up on around Mirror 'personality' for lack of a longer describtion, since Taylor didn't have time for one, since as soon as the three figured out they couldn't yet hurt Mirror, they turned as one to the crippled kitty.

Taylor knew he had to escape before he started to suffer the same way Mirror had. He drew together all his will power, tried to turn every fiber of his being into getting out. He briefly saw one of them shoot some sort of magical energy at Taylor, singed his fur, as he felt himself falling into comforting blackness.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

As everyone saw Taylor the Cat seemingly enveloped under the magical assault, his cat body seemingly stopped breathing, and he changed back into a kender, one who was very pale, had a broken arm, and had half his scalp burned off.

OOC: He's alive, and still breathing, but extremely slowly. His heart beat is also barely detectable.
OOC: Insano is going to have a heart attack when he wakes up (or if he reads this soon enought, sees Taylor turn back into a kender). This would be the third time he would think Taylor's dead (once he was right (Galan in the Inn), twice he was (well, once was, once remains to be seen, but likely) wrong (Taylor jumping off the dragon, and this time))Taylor Magetaunter

Kaila stared at the globe and turned to mirror...she wanted to do what she planned now....not later...but Navare rested a restraining hand on her shoulder...and shook his head.

Kalia nodded, knowing it would be best that she wait...but...! She cupped her hands together and murmered something softly...and her Crystal staff appeared before her. Identical to the Staff of Magius...but made of shimmering crystal. SHe reached out and touched the clear crystal globe at the top. The dragon's claw opened and the orb fell into her hand.

Guardian friend, Courage never end.
Mirror of sight, Mirror of dream
For nothing is as is seems

Crystal orb of light, Guide her
Orb of life, Show her...


The Orb pulsed with pure light....and hovered off her hand. it became a shimmering light between her and Mirror....and then dived at the sleeping elf....and entered Mirror.... Kalia turned quickly and watched the orb in Ku's hand...and saw her crystal reach mirror, and watched it shimmer and reform into a miniature version of her dragon form, hovering in the air between Mirror and the Spectre-Children.

The little dragon looked at mirror, this one made of pure crystal, from eyes to claws...even the feathers of it's wings where made of crystal... Mirror? the little dragon said, with Kalia's voice...just as she said it in the waking world.

In your dreams magical thoughts
all things are real unless you dream they're not
In your dreams love is the thought
carried on wings of hope

instantly we see it
the time is growing near
when everything is pinned on a hope
let the dreams of your heart
brillianly shine as one

Terjon gazed at the small crystal dragon within the glowing globe through the reptilian eyes of his snake form, then he extended his will, trying to find a way into Mirror's mind, but he was no dreamweaver, but once they got to the stones.... The druid could not see outside the carriage , but he knew instinctivly that nightime was upon them, he sent a telepathinc message to the horses pulling the carriage to take the carriage off the road and into the woods. Terjon's precognition was jabbing rather sharply at the back of his mind about tonigh, so he decided to take extra precautions.

He slithered out of the carriage, leaving the others to watch the insides of Mirror's mind, then returned to his minotaur form, he looked around the natural clearing that the horses had dragged the carriage into. He released the horeses first, then began to erect walls of thorns around the camp, combined with powerful wards and numerous animal guardians that watched the surrounding wood.

Something wrong was going to happen tonight, Terjon could feel it, and he was going to be ready. He almost hoped that whoever had cursed Mirror had sent people after them, the minotaur druid was known among those in his grove as a minotaur you didn't want to face in the forest, his habit of creating veterable armies of treants to fight alongside him. His aptitude with shapeshifting powers also came into it's own among the woods, coupled with his ever-present Ring of Mind Shielding.

He stomped back over to the carriage and tapped Gaia on the shoulder,
"See that pack? Well, don't let anybody touch it, Vect might take offence. Oh, and under no circumsatances whatsoever is anyone to drink any of the potions inside it, the arn't labled and some can have very.....interesting effects."
The huge mintaour wandered over to the side of the clearing and began to chant, transforming himself into a huge oak tree. As his branches spread over the top of the carriage, effectivly concealing it from aerial view, his lower branches and roots cricled the carriage doors, preventing any entry. As he felt the sun set he felt a strange fluctuation in the leylines of the area, he would have to investigate in the morning."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Mirror
07/08/2002 12:30 PM

Gaia looked at the minotaur and, although she regestered that he was talking, she didn't register the words. They made as much sense to her a gully dwarf gone mad. She simply nodded at him and then returned to her new charge.......Tay.
She looked down at her little kender friend, trying to help him as much as she could. She prayed to Mishkail, asking her goddess to heal her kender friend, the last thing in the world she wanted was for him to die........she didn't know what she'd do without the little guys antics brightening up her days.
As she prayed, Tay's arm began to move back into a more natural posistion. The arm would never be as nimble or as dexterious (?sp) as it always used to be, but at least the kender would be able to use it still.
Gaia sighed after mending Tay's arm as best she could, and realised how tired she was. The troubles of the recent past had suddenly started to take their toll on her. Oh how wonderful it would be to sleep............................No! She mustn't! She pinched her earlobe to try and shake herself out of it and looked back at Tay. She moved his posistion so that he was more comfortable, and gently brushed a stray strand of hair from his topknot out of his eyes. She had noticed that her prayer to Mishkail had done more that heal his broken arm, it had also regulated his breathing, and now, instead of being unconcious, he just appeared to be sleeping. Satified that there was nothing more she could do for her charge at this time, she kissed him softly on the forehead and went over to check on Mirror.
The Kagonesti was still sleeping, which was worrying, but at least there were no more wounds. Mirror still had a look of terror and confusion contorted on her face, and her body was contorted unnaturally from the writhing of her body. Gaia smoothed her friends hair, not that it made much difference, but she could think of nothing else to do. She then left her friend with a worried look on her face and went to watch what was happening in the orb that Ku held in her outstreched palm.
No one noticed that the ring Tay had placed on Mirror's finger to ward off any further injury had fallen off with Mirror's the force of Mirror's tortured movements...............................


* * * * * * * * * * * * *


Mirror looked up at the sound of Kalia's voice. Here was someone who would help, who could help! Yes Kalia would know what to do! She looked up at the small crystaline image of her friend in her dragon form and jumped up, forgetting her predicament in her excitement.
"Kalia, I......" her sentance was cut off in mid stream, and what should have come after was replaced by a scream that chilled all who heard it to their very core.
The "children" had decided that now was their best time to make a move. They lunged at the unsuspecting Kagonesti, barging past the tiny Dragon as if oit was nothing more that a play toy for a spoiled child.
The female white robe, Mirril, was the first to try, running head first at her mother. The half elf flew backwards stopped in her tracks by the shield that the dreamweaver had put in place.
The second, Morgana, the red robe, began to tear at the metaphorical shield using magic that Mirror had never heard before, magic that was strange to her, foreign. The shiled dissipated enough for the third child, Triton, to advance towards his mother unrestricted.
"Call this part retribution "Mother"!" He howled.
He placed his hands over his mothers eyes, and this is what brought forth the scream. Burning flesh could be smelt, and when his hands were removed, the flesh around Mirror's eyes was burnt beyond recognition, and try as she might, they would not open. She sank to the floor again, screaming.........
"I'M BLIND!"

07/08/2002 9:30 PM

Kalia's mind reeled as the "children" swept past her avatar...and Navare's hand tightened on her shoulder...as she felt his power pour into her.... A shimmering image of her true form lifted from Kalia's body...hovered over mirror for a moment, then joined with her's just as the globe did.

Glimmer flew straight and true...the light of Paladine shimmering around her...tempered and balanced by the dark light of Takhisis that supported her. "Mirror!" she roared, and wheeled easily in the dream world. "Tis a Dream! you can do as you wish here! the only limits is the limit of your imagination!! Dreams will carry your pain to reality! Die here...and you leave behind many who love you!" She cried, and dived at the "children" claws raking out angrily...to snag....Nothing!

Glimmer wheeled....and tried again, only to watch her claws tear through nothing....as if they wheren't even there....these "children" weren't even real....could it be possible that Mirror's own Grief was causing this nightmare???

"Mirror!! Get a hold of yourself! Please!!!!" She cried...Look beyond the coffers
to the men who weild the swords.
The one who rules their hearts and minds
is the one who guides the wars
The crown is not the only one
who writes the songs we sing
some games of power, blood, and death
are played by knights...Not kings.

Insano
07/09/2002 10:42 PM

The gnome walked in his own dream, one full of steam whistles, and gnomeflingers. Insano could study and solve his own lifequest at a whim while he was here, he had unlimited resources, quills, parchment.
As Insano studied within his dream, he sang an old Gnomish working tune.

Though the hours may be long, and the payment not the best
The Gnomes of Ol' Mount Nevermind are smarter than the rest
The whilste whine and pipes shall squeek when the day is through
All the Gnomes stay at work, for thats what we Gnomes do

The Gnome continues his work happily, until the screeching sound of a cat is heard softly in the distance. "Funny, a cat in the research sect of Mt. Nevermind..." ponders the gnome softly to himself. However, the cry doesnt stop, it only grows louder and more piercing to the point when Insanos head feels as though it is about to burst.

Insano is suddenly snapped awake just in time to see Taylor arrive back into the "real" world. The gnome sees that Tays face is ashen. "Why? What? Oh my, whats going on here?" demands the gnome, with his meanest face on. When abruptly the magic rope in which Taylor had been towing Insano around on goes limp, thus sending Insano tumbling to the floor, parchment and all.
The gnome quickly gathers all of his belongings about him, and crawls to his best friends side. "Oh No...someones killed him....See Taylor Magetaunter, thats why you shouldnt go off adventuring without me!" sobs Insano through his tears. "Please...someone, help me...Help my friend!" Concludes Insano as he looks around the room.


OCC MUA-HAha. I told you fellas that you couldnt write a story like this without poor ol' me! Now all I need is to be brought up to speed on whats going on....because I read all the previous posts, but I'm still kind of muddled on whats going on.HEY! Pay attention you fu.....BOOBIES!!

Terjon growled mentaqly as Vect's serpentine conciousness intruded on his own,

"You might want to get down here massster."

The minotaur ended his shapeshifting spell and walked over to the carriage, he stuck his head through the door, first noticing the crystal dragon within the glowing sphere that showed Mirror's mind. Then he noticed the shocked face of a gnome barely a foot away from his huge horns,

"Errm, hi....""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

TayJK
08/21/2002 11:51 PM

OOC: I hope this doesn't turn into another Annoyed thread-dies,-comes-back,-repeats type thing.

OOC: Mirror, you mentioned Gaia fixing Taylor's hair. 1. A good size hunk of Taylor's hair was burned off by the magical energy Mirror's 'kids' sent at him right before he got out of her mind. 2. I want to ditch the topknot, so, as a kender, I'll stand out more.

OOC: I also have an idea on who's doing this.

Taylor's arm, which still wasn't quite in the correct position, slowly (as in a few hours time) returns to a natural, unbroken position (OOC: Ring of Regeneration. Taylor always wears one, or something that has similar powers. Doesn't grow back burned hair, though).

******************

Taylor's mind, unlike his body, was fully healed and back at full energy. So, using an item given to him by his master long ago, he went into himself, trying to match the energy Mirror's 'children' shot at him before he left her mind. He searched through the mirad numbers of types of magical energy he's encountered. When he found one that was similar, he was both surprised, and not surprised.

"I thought he was banished from Kyrnn," Taylor thought.

"But wait, wasn't he still ashes in Ghostbuster's pouch when we finally we able to cast that spell? Maybe he somehow was able to reform himself, went back to the hedge maze, got Mirror's children, and worked his hideous power on them."

Taylor thought for a moment, then considered, "I still desperately hope the father wasn't Tantric. Especially after what he did...."Taylor Magetaunter

Terjon shrugged, the gnome was obviously to shocked or suprised to answer. He glanced at the globe, the dragon that was franticaly trying to harm the dream-children - but to no avail. He looked long and hard at the writhing form of Mirror, then at the globe again.

She can't hurt them....why? Wait! She must be as real there as dreams are here....but if Mirror were to dream of.......

The huge minotaur stomped over to the Kangonesti and layed a hand atop her head, letting his thought seep through into her subconcious. Thoughts of a hellis forest, of thorns and vines that reached out and grasped at those who dared to enter...[i]there![/i] Terjon held onto that thought and watched with satisfaction as the dream-globe began to fill with the twisting green tendrils of thorn and vine that twisted and lashed at the 'children', catching at their robes and binding them. Mirror was safe again it seemed, but the children had broken through smilar bindings before. Terjon looked around,

"We need to get to that Grove, I need the power from the stones to get our Dream Weaver into her head and actualy get something done.""Ah, they have a cave troll....."
