Ghostbuster looks at the ring in something aproaching worshipfulness."I don't know!"He cries."I am not a mage,i don't know the magic words!
"Wait."he says to himself."Perhaps it requires no magic words.Put it on."he urges Tolk.

Ignoring Hooded purposfully, Tolk begins to slip the ring on, then stops. She looks up at Ghostbuster. "What if it works, how will you get out?"

"That ring looks familiar, wait a minute..." Hooded says and looks at his finger. His shapeshifting ring is still there. The ring had obviously replicated itself when the kender had "borrowed" it. A ring designed to torment and drive its wearer insane. On a dragon it was almost unbearable, on an already insane kender...
"Yes put the ring on Pitiful Kender. It will help you." Hooded says malevolently.

"Never trust a bully."

red's voice is strained and hoarse. He slowly sis up and looks around. He knew it was a mistake. His head started to spin.

Red barely recalled the time he'd een back in the cell. It was foggy after being but into the Hole. But he remembered the tortures.. He rememberes them very well indeed..

*Hooded spins on Red.*

"Never trust insanity is more like it Red." Hooded says and walks over to Red. "I thought you said you were getting. This was the time." Hooded says with a mocking 'PFFFT'. The bully/victim roles now back in place. "As I said, I like the work they did to your hands. I can think of a few additions if that would please you. Your index fingers do seem a little straight from this angle..."

Red laughed and smashed his hand against the ground.

He slowly got up and clenched both his hands into fist. The bones pop and bend at odd angle. You notice already most of the bleeding has stopped and some of the wounds appear to have vanished.

"Don't try me Hooded. I've LET you play Bully, it was easier that way. Whatever powers you had out there *gestures beyond the cell* won't helpyou here."

Red grined and leaned against a wwall. "And Remember I told you.. This is my home"

Tolk sees the confrontation between Red and Hooded and knows they must leave soon. She takes a deep breath and looks at Ghostbuster. "Maybe if we hold onto each other REAL tight, it will work for both of us."

Ghostbuster hugs Tolk as hard as he can."Now put on the ring."

*Hooded blanches slightly at the mention of his loss of power in the cell. Recovering quickly however Hooded looks at red in astonishment as he twists his hands further out of place.*

"Your home? Yet you can't leave. Nor can you command anyone in your "home". You get tortured in your "home" and are locked away like an animal. Some home you found yourself Red."

*Turning to the kenders. Hooded rolls his eyes and begins to turn away but notices the female putting on the ring.*

Red laughed at it all. Nothing ever changes. He leaned against a wall and played with his broken hands. popping the bones this way and that. A sick snapping and crunching sound can be heard throughout the cell.

ooc; Sorry, I had to scale this enormous Writer's Block and at the top there was this pink giraffe who I had to do battle with and whenever I tried cutting her head off, her neck would disappear! Then she pushed me off and I was carried away by a pack of rabid turkeys who locked meactually INSIDE of the writer's block and I had to go through the abyss in order to get out. But here I am! :-)

ig; Tolk slips the ring on. Nothing happens. "Drnit, this thing just doesn't work!" But then there is a *pop* and a tall, human female appears behind them. She is dressed quite strangely, with a revealing bodice peice and a dusty skirt. She has long, flaming red hair, one green eye, and one brown eye. She looks around inconfusion.
"Hey, it's K'Sanderlynn!!!" Tolk pipes happily, "I met her in a visit to an alternate dimension! She can get us out; she's a . . . ." Tolk then stops, remembering Ghostbuster's faith to Paladine.

*Hooded snorts. Whatever gods ruled this cell, sure had a sense of humor. The morphed dragon would find the cell as comforting as a kender did.*

"Well well. Welcome K'Sanderlynn. 1 copper to get in. A billion gold to get out." Hooded says and sits back against the wall. Hoping for a furious reaction when K found out there was no escape. Hooded points to the kenders. "They're the ones who brought you here."

Tolk looks into Ghostbuster's eyes. "Don't think that way, please! You're the one that gave me faith! We will get out. Now, about K, she's a . . .a red dragon."

K looked around, confused, letting Hooded's words sink in and looking at the kender. "Kender, what abominable creatures." She sat next to Hooded, still trying to sort out the situation. "Looks like you've all been here long, and you haven't killed them yet? I'm surprised."

DarkBeserker
10/22/2000 10:50 AM

Red grinned.

"Hooded talks big and bad. but when it comes down to it I've seen Gully Dwarves with more guts."

Red snapped his forearm back into line. He slowly felt the bones with a grin.

"No wait.. That's not true.. But he did run lie a Gully when the Giants came.."

*Hooded sighs and turns to K.*

"Yes. It must be the insanity kicking in. I should have killed them years ago. Although the days are long and they provide a bit of entertainment occasionally." Hooded says and picks up a handful of dirt and throws it at the kenders. "See their reaction? They just sit there like zombies. Quite interesting really."

*Hearing Red's comment, Hooded snorts.*

"The one who likes to crack his bones in and out is Red. He's the most insane out of everyone. Like the kenders, I don't know why I haven't killed him yet. Although, he'd probably say the same thing about me." Hooded stops talking but remembers Grog. "That's Grog. He just sits there quietly. Except for the odd comment about some tower." Hooded says finishing the introductions. "Oh and forget about magic and shapeshifting. This place is a prison in more ways than one."

K tosses her hair and looks at Hooded. "Who says I need shapeshifting or magic to get out?" She stands and saunters over to the bars, then calls seductively to the guard. He can see her twirling her hair and propositioning the guard.

Tolk sends a nasty glance at Hooded when he throws the dirt. Something snaps inside of her. She stands and stomps over to him only as a kender can stomp, pauses for a moment, then kicks him full in the face. "Red is right, you're a coward!" She kicks him again, "Get up and fight, you bully! You've shown us your bark, now show us your bite!!"

DarkBeserker
10/23/2000 3:32 AM

Red chuckles.

"K.. I think you'll enjoy it when they toss you to the half orc guard.. What was left of the last woman to try that then got tossed to a group of Gnoll prisioners.... I think she was gade when the finally ate her.."

Looking at Tolk he almost laughs. It was a bit much sheing the tiny kender stand up to Hooded.

Tolk steps back and watches Hooded with dark eyes. She'd make him react. She would make him pay for his actions. She kicked his knee.

The_Hooded_One
10/24/2000 1:42 AM

*Hooded watches K's flirtations and nods at Red's comments. Her voluptuous form would definitely woo a human guard. Not the monsters that usually patrolled the halls however. Seeing the kender walk over, Hooded waves a hand dismissively. When his knee is kicked though, Hooded irritably stands to his full six and a half foot height, looking down at the tiny four foot kender. Grabbing Tolk around the throat, Hooded lifts the female kender off the ground. Her feet kicking in the air wildly.*

"Do you want the left or right side of your head smashed into the wall Kender?"

Tolk grabs Hooded's arm and digs her nails (quite grown from her stay) into his skin. "How about both?" She retorts, spitting in his face. "I'm not afraid of you! I'm not afraid of death! Have you forgotten; I'm a kender!" And she smiled. "You may act like a bully but I know you won't kill me. You won't because you're a fraid of solitude! Yeah, what would you have to do if Ghostbuster and I were gone, huh? You certainly can't taunt Red anymore, he'll rip your testicles out!" Tolk begins to laugh; "You're as tender as a mouse! Mouse! Mouse!! Squeak!!!!!!"

The_Hooded_One
10/26/2000 2:38 AM

*Hooded cringes at the kenders words. He had been denying it for many years, but now the the kender mentioned it Hooded realized she was right. The cell was bad enough, without the kenders to critisize, it would be intolerable.*

"You're right kender, I won't kill you..." Hooded says angrily and with his free hand pulls out the blade he had gained off Red earlier. "One thing I've always noticed about you little kenders, no matter how filthy you get your hair is always shiny and flowing. I can understand why kenders treasure their hair so much now." Hooded says and throws the small child like figure into a wall. Knocking her unconscious. When Tolk awakens, she finds herself bald. "Damn you kender. Shaving your head has made this dagger as blunt as a butter knife." Hooded notes with disgust and a little glee also as he discards the knife, throwing it out the cell door.

Tolk's first instinct is to scream, yet she doesn't want to give Hooded that pleasure. However, as she feels the lack of beautiful, long black tresses, her only true pride, she can feel little else but horror. Screw Hooded, she thinks, and screams, running to Ghostbuster.

K turns from the guard and laughs. "You got guts there, Hooded. She's probably ready to biter your balls off!" She turns her attention back to the guard.

The_Thorn
10/26/2000 10:31 AM

Grog watches the whole scene from his corner in the shadows. He had broken the rat bone when Hooded started to shave his little friend. He could have stopped the bully but what was the point. They still hadn't found a way out.

Joe_Ghostbuster
10/26/2000 12:37 PM

Ghostbuster looks at Tolks new shaved head and has dreams of millions of kenders shaving thier heads and become violent,kicking the knee's of all in thier way.
He shakes his head,clearing it,and opens his mouth.He closes it again.Then he realizes what he wants to say.
"Tolk,you look beatiful with a shaved head."he says with all sincerity.
((OOC,BTW:Mice?Squeck?Tolk,are you psychic?))

*Hooded sits back and watches the kenders. Still a little irritated by the female kenders cutting comments. If he didn't escape, Hooded knew he would turn into a mere shadow of his former self very soon. The insanity seed inside his head seemed to be growing with increasing pace each day. Turning to K, Hooded waves a dismissive hand.*

"Yes, I know the deviousness of kender filth all too well. We need to put that aside for a time and escape. Maybe that is the purpose of this cell." Hooded's face screws up. He tries to continue, but the words don't seem to come out. Finally Hooded chokes out the words. "Each escape attempt fails because we fail. We need to-" Hooded puts a hand over his mouth to stop himself from vomitting. "We need to fully unite and work together. Don't ask me why, but the gods seem to like giving lesser beings these sorts of challenges."

Tolk looks up at Ghostbuster. "Really?" She asks, hesitantly, wiping the tears from her eyes.

K nodded. She replied quietly, so that Hooded was the only one that heard her. "Unite, escape, then you can strike out against the kender." She chuckled darkley. "I've been in situations like these, the Gods are stupid! Except for Takhisis, of course. Whoever said you couldn't see in the darkness?"

The_Hooded_One
10/27/2000 3:48 AM

*Hooded nods in noone's direction although the nod is aimed at K. Whispering back.*

"'Only in true darkness can you see the light.'" Hooded quotes to K. Or quotes as close as he can remember, memories became distorted in this dank cell. "Hmm... Takhisis is a fool also. Albeit she is the least fool of the fools. I saw Paladine once. The retard couldn't even hold onto his hat." Hooded scoffs. Flashing the cleric an amused glance.

K winks at Hodded, then stands and looks around the cell. She walks up to the two kender and leans down close to them, whispering so that the guards cannot hear; "If we intend to excape, we must all unite . . ."

Tolk looked at her in horrid disgust. "Not with Hooded, he can stay here for all I care."

K shrugged. "Fine, but then you can stay here with him. Who knows . . ." She stands and walks over to Grog to summerize as easily as she can.

Tolk looks at Ghostbuster. "Do you think we should?"

*Following K's lead. Hooded stands up. The following was hard pill to swallow, but Hooded knew it had to be done in order to escape. Approaching Red.*

"Red. This is your home, but not our own. Will you help us escape?" Hooded says and tries to cover the bitter look on his face as he throws Red's dagger back to him. Walking over to the ogre Hooded alters his speech to the lowest form of common he knows. "We go find tower now."

*Hooded braces himself for his next foul act.*

"Sorry about your hair kender." Hooded says and is suddenly inspired with his next words. "I liked the pictures you used to do on my manacles so much, I thought I'd make your head like a manacle too so I could draw smiley faces on your head."

*Turning to the kender cleric.*

"Perhaps you could help me make a Fizban smiley face?" Hooded finishes and moves quickly to the corner. Vomitting overwhelms Hooded after his kind deeds.

"They are planning something,for sure.But still,the idea is a good one.Perhaps the Gods are testing us,and we must unite to survive."he says to Tolk.
He turns to Hooded,who is still throwing up in the corner."I, at least, will join you.But make one more smily face comment,and I will tell Grog that the tower is hidden in your stomach,and that he has to look and see!"

*Hooded finishes purging his stomach and turns back to the group. His face pale. Even so, he looks relieved.*

"Agreed then. All of us except Red that is." Hooded says looking over to the insane man who had been staring blankly at the wall for the past few days. Deciding he had finally cracked. Hooded concentrates on the sanity survivors. "First we have to escape the immediate cell. Kenderkin, which one of you two is the most most proficient lock picker?" Hooded asks and throws a thin strip of wire over to the two. "Waste that wire not. I have been holding onto it for years. In an uncomfortable part of my body I may add."

Ghostbuster see's the logic in Hood's words and follows him down the stairs, but not before directing a prayer at his god.
As he descends,he has to restrain himself from being sick at the sight of the horrible equipment used.
"This place is evil,friends.This is almost worse then the cell."he says,the sound caryying easily in the musty air.

"No we can't split up!" Hooded says fervently but looks to the gold door. "We can't..." Hooded begins to walk towards the gold door and somehow manages to stop himself. "If we split we fail. To rot in the cell once more." Hooded begins to walk towards the gold door again, but manages to stop himself once more.

Tolk keeps a tight hold on Ghostbuster's hand, watching as each of the doors has its own captor already.

K watches the weak will of the people and scoffs. "Okay, already, lets turn our eyes AWAY from the doors and discuss this logically!"

Ghostbuster wrenches his eyes away from the silver door."Right.No splitting up.We'll go through the silver door."

*Hooded snaps out of it and turns to K with a grudging look of admiration. The will to resist the doors was an effort.*

"Silver door? Alright why not." Hooded notes slightly annoyed. Noting the kender wheedling his original choice door into the equation. "Ogre. The tower is through the silver door." Hooded lies.

The word tower penetrates the fog around Grog's mind. He moves his gaze from the door he is currently staring at to the silver door. "Okay," replies the ogre as he shrugs his shoulders. "Me fine with that," he replies, waiting for someone to lead the way.

Ghostbuster is suprised at how easily the others agree with him.Its probably becuase I'm the one with the holy relics. he thinks dryly to himself.
"All right.Lets go."the kender takes Tolks hand and walks toward the door.He stares at it,noticing there is no knob or keyhole.He touches the door,lightly,and it suddenly opens.GHostbuster walks through.

*Through the silver door lies no tower. An old man walks out. For some reason, none of the prisoners think to attack. Nor will they ever. He is the master of the jail. He gestures to a wooden door behind him.*

"To pass you must all give up what is most valuable to you. Offer me something which isn't the most valuable thing you own... and you all go back to the cell."

*The master of the jail waves a hand. The prisoners are given all the items they owned before being imprisoned. Hooded caresses his dagger lovingly and lets out a sigh.*

Grog looks stupidly around as he is suddenly surrounded by his meager possessions. This stuff meant hardly anything to him, he could always find new things. He really liked his bronze helmet though. It fit the ogre almost perfectly.

In a flash of rare brilliance, Grog thought of what he valued most. The simple-minded ogre walked over to Ghostbuster. "Me need help, ask big favor of small healer," says the ogre. "Me need healed soon, can do?" Grog questions.

12/22/2000 7:24 AM

Ghostbuster jumps as a flood of pouches appear beside him.How was he supposed to figure out what was the most important thing to him?
Grog comes to him and asks him his question.TRhe cleric takes hold of the ogre's limb."I don't think I can,Grog.But maybe,if Paladine gives me the power..."
He sighs."I am willing to try.But it may not work,and the power bounce back to both of us.We may not survive.Are you sure you want to do it?"

"Me sure," says Grog. He lifts the large axe that had appeared with his left hand. Several tears stream out as the ogre realiizes many thing he will now longer be able to do.

With a mighty swing, Grog cuts off his right hand. He immediately drops the axe and falls to his knees, sobbing as he clutched at the now bleeding apendage. "Please heal," he sobs to Ghostbuster.

12/24/2000 7:43 AM

"Very well."
With a murmer of "Paladine,do not fail me now,"the kender cleric takes hold of Grogs bleeding appendage with both of his small hands.
From between his fingers,a few rays of light can be seen.Then the kenders hands themselves begin to glow,then seem to melt.His face a mask of pain and purpose,Ghostbuster does not let go.After a while,his hands return to normal,and he removes his hands to reveal...
The stump of a hand.The kender falls to the ground,totally exuasted."I'm sorry Grog..."__________________________________________________

*Hooded watches the ogre. Very nearly touched by the sacrifice. But not quite. With a sigh, Hooded throws his dagger to the master of the jail. The master of the jail turns the blade over. Examining both sides carefully.*

"Nice dagger. Nice try." The master of the jail says and throws the dagger back to Hooded. "You and I both know you value something more. I should put you guys back in the cell now. But I'll give you another chance."

*Hooded's hand touches his hood delicately. The master of the jail grins. Hooded looks around undecided.*

K lets out an exasperated sigh. It was that blasted Kender that got her into this, but it had to be her own sacrifice to get out. She takes a necklace out from her collar and looks thoughtfully at the silver and gold ring too big for any of her fingers. With another deep sigh, she takes it off its chain and hands it to the jailkeeper. "It was my father's." She explains, tears beginning to water her eyes. "My only inheritance from him."

Tolk looks at the abundant pile of pouches despairingly. She could pick out trhousands of trinkets whose stories held special meaning for her, or perhaps the heirloom pin from her great-great grandmother that, under some strange miracle had stayed in her fanmily, but those would not be her true prized possesions. There were only two things now that held deep significance for her, and one had already been chopped off. Her eyes began to water as she looked to Ghostbuster. "I cannot . . ." She mouthed, taking a few steps backwards.

Joe_Ghostbuster

The kender cleric takes hold of Tolk,and looks into her eyes."It is your choice, Tolk.Do you want to return to that horrible pit of madness?It is this,or that.

Tolkanin didn't feel that Ghostbuster understood her dilemma. "Ghostbuster . . . besides my hair . . ." She almost coulnd't continue, and broke down crying. "But Ghostbuster, *you're* my most prized possesion, you're my best friend, you're a mentor, and inspiration with the power of your faith . . ." She could hardly choke out the last few words; "I . . .love you . . ."

Ghostbusters face lights up."You...love me?"he sits down on the floor.Hard."I,I,I..."The kender takes a deep breath,"I love you too."
He takes Tolk in his arms and hugs her,lost in amazment.He loved her!Wow!After a while,he notices the passive,cold face of the prison warden,watching.
"But you certainly can't give him me!Maybe he'll accept second most important thing..."says Ghostbuster,nervously.He turns to the warden."Will you?"__________________________________________________

"No can do Kendermaiden. That would be doing you a favor. You were on the right track before. To pass you must give up your love for that other cut-purse. You will never know lover again."

*Hooded grunts.*

"Is that all!" Hooded spits angrily and rips his hood off.

"Hurry up kender, give the jailor your emotion. Love is a weakness anyway... or so I'm told."

Tolk looked at Ghostbuster, lost for the moment . . . She found herself caught in his eyes, thinking of all the things that would never be. But she knew she had to. She coulnd't doom him here, she coulnd't doom the others. Cherishing every moment, she approached Ghostbuster and hugged him gentally, then kissed him. Her first kiss . . .her last. Her first love . . . her only love . . .her greatest sacrifice. She went back to her pouches and rummaged through them, then found a small brooch of a jeweled bird, the one that had been owned by her great-grandmother. She returned to Ghostbuster and pressed it into his hand. "To let you know that I once did love you with everything contained in my soul." She said quietly. A steady stream of tears marked her cheecks as she let her hand fall from Ghostbuster's, and she turned finally to the Master Of The Jail.

The Master of the jail looks at the sobbing kenders before him with no expression at all."Ah yes,the most important thing to you...is your love for each other.One has already given it up!"
He holds out his hand,and something appears in it.A globe of the purest green,with flashing picture's of all the moments the two kender had been together,from Tolks point of view."Now,will you add your love to my little bauble,kender boy?"he asks Ghostbuster.
"I,"Ghostbuster stammers,looking at Tolk,who seems different somehow."I,will."he says.And to the pictures on the ball are added his experiences, his love for Tolk.The globe turns green blue,and the Master of the Jail puts it into his robes.

She knew they would be getting out soon, and for that she felt joy, yet there was something missing . . .something she coulnd't place. But they were leaving, and wasn't that the most important fact at the moment?!?!?

*The master of the jail turns and watches the long term prisoners walk past him and out of the jail. Turning to Hood, the master of the jail narrows his eyes.*

"Now you must give up your Hood." The master of the jail says with a glean to his eyes.

*Hooded snaps his fingers, bringing his dagger instantly into a tight grip. Without pause he charges the master of the jail. Hooded suddenly disappears after the master of the jail waves his hand. Turning around, the master of the jail clicks his fingers at each of the prisoners in turn. When everyone opens their eyes, they find themselves back in their old cell. The master of the jail is standing outside the bars, he is shaking his head judgementally.*

"You were sooooo close. I warned you I did. Give it up or wind up back in here... tsk tsk..." The master of the jail walks off before anyone can reply.

*Hooded kicks the wall furiously.*

"Damn you kenders! This is all your fault." Hooded spits in disgust and turns to Grog. "It's your fault to Tower Boy."

OOC: because I have written Grog into other posts while you were gone, Grog managed to leave the jail as you noticed. Thus, I will make my next post.

*In the heavens*

The gods of good take pity on the three, Grog and the two kender. They had upheld their part of the deal, and Paladine felt it was unfair for one to ruin it for them. The Platinum One talked with the other gods of good. When the master of the jail goes to return these three to their cell, Solinari blocks his spell, allowing them to go free. To punish Hooded, the good god of magic casts a powerful illusion spell, making Hooded believe that the others are in the cell with him.

*In the forest*

Grog continues to crash through the underbrush feeling the pull of the tower become stronger and stronger.

*In the cell*

The illusion of Grog snorts at Hooded's insult, ignoring him. He had more important things to do then squabble with that lowly prisoner. The ogre faded back into his customary corner of shadows.

OOC2: Hope this works for you Hooded. I will continue to play the illusion, but Grog is free.

*Hooded squints his eyes suspiciously at Grog. That didn't seem like the ogre Hooded had gotten used to over the past decades. Obviously the last set back had changed him, Hooded reasons to himself.*

"Whatever Grog..." Hooded looks around the cell. "The only compensation of being in here is knowing that you guys are suffering equally. For a minute there I thought the master of the jail would only send me back. What a relief to see you all back here, hating this place just like me.... guys? guys?"

The illusion of Grog was gone, melded with the shadows. The others were gone too, the ultimate irony unfolding before Hooded. The others were free and he wasn't. He was alone now, with the girl who had gotten lost and the braindead crazy that hadn't said a word in a long time.

OOC: So this is officially dead. Hooded, are we to assume that eventually your character escapes?

02/25/2001 11:28 PM

yes, 5 years after. Obviously Hooded takes his solitary confinement as a deliberate insult of Grog, K, Red, Catatonic and the kenders. He spends 5 years plotting cruel revenge plans and dedicates the next several decades carrying those plans out.
