"AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!"
"THATS IT! I'm not going through this anymore you...you.... kender! Get the hell out of my inn,and don't come back!"
The door to the "Rambuctious Rum' inn opens,and Ghostbuster Lillypad,kender cleric extra-ordainare, flys out. Aided,of course, by the hefty arms of an obviously annoyed innkeeper.The kender lands firmly on his behind,and his hoopak lands beside him.
Ghostbuster gets to his feet, picking up his hoopak, annoyed himself now. "Well! I was just doing him a favour,returning all his money! He shouldn't drop his money pouch so many times!" The cleric rubs his platinum medalion for a second,thinking a summons.
A speck appears in the sky,dropping towards Ghostbuster.After a while,a bronze dragon lands in front of the kender,scaring the populace of the small town in the process.The kender mounts,and the bronze lifts off,flying towards a pre-aranged meetign place,a clearing in the forest. Ghostbuster rubs his medalion again,thinking a different kind of summons.A request for the mettalic dragons to send curiers to all worthy adventurers,and to bring them to the clearing.Where they will all help in a mission from the divine God,Paladine.
OOC: If you think you are 'worthy' enough,consider a dragon already asking for your help.

Kilborne wasn't understanding.
"What is it exactly that you want ME to do." It was at least the third time he had asked the question, and once again he recieved the same answer. The great silver dragon shook it's head and smiled down at him.
"You'll just have to trust me friend, all will be revealed when you arrive at the clearing. All you need to do for now is mount up."
Kilborne shrugged.
"All right, take me."
Using his staff as a climbing tool, the old Mage climed up the dragon's neck and sat in the saddle. The dragon's great serpintine head turned to look at him.
"Hold on..."
With that the Silver lifted into the air and flew south towards the forest.

OOC: always remember Kalia and Crystalamira are the same person, Kalia is her human form, and Crystalamira is the Dragon.

While flying stedily south, Crystalamira noticed the shimmer of silver off of the dragon's wings, cheer in her heart at seeing another Dragon, she Folded her Feathered wings and dived to meet them.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

"Greabolt, where is Duncan?" Asked his brother Jorgan. "Why is he not riding you?"
"Just get on. We've got business." Replied the bronze. "You're needed elswhere."
"Where?"
"Just get on."
So, reluctantly, Jorgan mounts Greabolt, his brother's bronze companion.
"So, where to?"
"Just hold on, we're in a hurry."
And with that, Greabolt takes to the air.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Yaah!!" Katyr pushed her grey steed harder as they raced across the vast fields of her property.

Suddenly her horse reared up and threw her high in the air. She landed on her back and lay there for awhile in pain and confusion. Slowly she got up and dusted herself off, she looked up and cursed "What the.....?!"

Infront of her stood a massive silver dragon who appeared to have a slight smile on its scaled face.

Katyr adjusted her dark purple leather armor and grabbed the hilt of her sword "What in the god's name do you think you're doing! you almost killed me!" the dragons smile faded as it spoke "Katyr Uth Caleb, you have been summoned and i have been sent to retrieve you, please come with me" the dragon waited expectantly.

"Wait a minute, who sent for me and why?" the dragon simply repeated its previous statement. "Oh so its like that is it" Katyr said as she mounted the dragon "well i'll come with you and when i meet whoever sent you i'm going to have a little talk with them about how they do business....." the dragon lifted into the air trying to block out the rest of Katyr's impassioned speech.

Ghostbuster stands in the clearing, his platinum medalion obvious on his shirt and the bronze dragon at his side, watching as three dragons with riders circle the clearing,and land.He goes to greet the first arrivals,a weathered old mage, a young warrior, and a seemingly annoyed woman warior.
"Hello! I'm Ghostbuster Lillypad,kender cleric of Paladine extra-ordanaire, recently apointed high cleric of Paladine to kender and all non-elfs and humans.Except Ogre's,cause they're evil.And except draconions,ditto.And dragons,since they don't have clerics. And except dwarves,since they all call me a doorknob.And except lots of other people. So really,only to kender,gnomes,and gully dwarves."
The kender takes a deep breath,concentrating."Anway.I've called you here to fulfill a mission from Paladine. A very important mission. A very,very, very important mission. You see,there's this mage.And he found this spell.That sort of..... " The kender stops for a second,then rushes on,"brought new evil Gods to Kyrnn."
Ghostbuster waits a while as that kicks in."If you wanna quit now,you can. If you stay, you will be part of a new group of Hero's, one that must save the world,as it needs saving despratly.And if you stay, I will tell you what we must do,and what we will face."
ooc:Anyone who still wants to join,just land in the middle.

Kilborne narrowed his eyes. And furrowed his fluffy eyebrows. His weatherbeaten skin wrinkled reavealing an amazing amount of creases.
"I, the greatest herbalist of the Red robes, have been called upon to help a KENDER?"
The mage shook his head, wagging his great white beard.
"Tell us more little one, what exactly are these," his nose upturned in disgust "new gods up to."
With a thought he added "And NO stretching of the truth, or I'll make you a potion that will turn you into a gully dwarf!"

04/14/2001 6:38 PM

Katyr stood forward proudly "Never let it be said that Katyr Uth Caleb turned away from a needy cause, even a Kender, even one who sends rude dragons!" she relaxed a little "So what of this braindead Mage who cast the spell in the first place?"

Kilborne cast a withering glance in the direction of the "lady". He prefered his women to be quiet and obediant. He turned back to Ghostbuster and waited.

Another dragon circled above the heads of those assembled. It spiralled down and landed, rather noiselly in the midst of everyone. A young wilder elf, silver eyes glistening along with the silver sash that she wore around her waist to symbolise the order of magic she belonged to. The day was hot, far too hot to be wearing those heavy velvet robes, so she had chosen a pair of light breeches and a sleevless tunic, with the sash tieing everything together. Her long hair hung in a briad down the center of her back, and as she approached the group, her spell components jangled in pouches which hung from her waist.
"Hello everyone!" she smiled, seemingly not a bit put out by the crash landing, "Why are we all here anyway?" She looked towards the kender, waiting for a reply.Mirror.

The assembled group are disturbed from there talking by a silver dragon in the air, riden by a silver robed mage. "You bloodly fool, Kyron. We got here late!"

"If you went so preoccupied with that mage Justin, we wouldn't have been late in the first place," Kyron boomed back. They landed, Kyron changing to her human form of a female Solamnic Knight. "Sorry we are late. Mages always take forever."ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Ghostbuster looks mournfully at Kilborne."Well,you see...Paladine sort of....erased my inborn habit of exagerating for this trip.And it seems that people will also drop things a bit less on the quest." to Katyr, "The mage was killed,of course,his magical power,which was considerable,adsorbed by the Evil Gods."
"Um, could you please fill in the newcomers?If any stay,I will tell both them and you the rest.I need to...do something."the kender cleric quickly moves a bit away and starts his inward pleading with Paladine for' just a bit of a story',or just one pouch 'borrowed'.

OOC: I'm assuming that Joe thought I was one of the first three, but I'm not. Go figure...

In the sky a bronze goes flying by, performing a barrol roll WITH it's rider. He circles the clearing twice and then lands, sending an uproar of dead grass and dust into the air. For a bronze, he is rather large, and the man that climbs down is exceptional to that fact. He stands at 7 feet tall, (and is rather attractive too, but not too much. Handsome I guess.) He wears brown leather armor, and carries a small satchel. At his hip is a longsword, and across his back is a broadsword. He aproaches the group, and stops dead in his tracks.

"Ghostbuster...I thought you were dead!!!"

He laughs, a deep, hardy laugh and smiles.

"Greabolt should have told me that it was you who wanted me. I'd have been here sooner. So let me guess...you're in mortal danger, and you need help to get out of it...ha ha ha, what's new?"

He laughs, thinking that he knows what is going on.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last of the adventurers to arrive caused quite a stir with those already collected. He arrived on the back of a black dragon and he was a goblin. Wart was his name. He looked at the others with wide eyes. "This can't be want he meant," the goblin whined to the dragon.

The dragon snorted in the goblin's face, blowing him on his ass. The goblin picked himself up and cleaned of his lack robe. "Stupid kender," mumbled the goblin. "I'm here to help a Lilypad, whatever that is, at the command of my master," wheezed Wart."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr shifts her weight from one foot to the other and sighs. She looks around at all the newcomers and their dragons and nods to herself, there were definately some very interesting characters here and she decided that this whole situation could prove to be very interesting itself.

ooc: Glasswalker,how exactly do you know me? You've RP'ed with Joe the human,not Ghostbuster the kender.
ooc2: and lets assume Katyr and KIlborne told all the new arrivals whats happening.
Ghostbuster returns from his inner discussion.Apperantly he didn't get what he wanted, as his usually cheery face is still glum. He cheers up abit when he see's all the new arrivals."So,you've all heard the news? New evil gods, should be fun destroying them. Anyone want to leave?Its still an option."
Getting no reply,the kender cleric takes a deep breath and sits down on a rock. "Allright.This is how we defeat them,according to Paladine.The sorcererr who summoned the gods was catious,despite what you might think. He put a condition on his summoning,that it could be aborted by a certain other spell of his. Of course, he didn't have time to use it before he was killed. So...we have to get to that spell scroll."
"The scroll was divided into five parts.Each evil god took one of the parts,and hid it as he or she saw fit. Paladine has told me where each part is,but they are held in strong anti-magic and anti-god power rooms,so he or the other Kyrnn'ish gods cannot take them from there,and neither can we easily teleport there and steal them.We will have to go through all the obstacles and evils the new gods can put in our paths."B
Ghostbuster looks at the goblin closely."We may recieve help from the other gods,good or evil or neutruel, since they are all against the new gods." the kender takes in all the chosen heros with a decidedly un-kenderlike peircing look. "So,do all wish to join? This the last chance to leave,after this,you are in until our mission is done,or...you are dead."

OOC: Well, we're going to assume that Katyr knows Jorgan, so we can just pretend he knows Lilypad too...

"Well...so you aren't in mortal danger...that surprises me Ghostbuster! So let me get this straight...Paladine wants me to help you get back five peices of scrolls from five differant locations all across Krynn...So that you can recite that spell, and banish these five evil gods from Krynn. Am I right so far? Okay...The question is, do they know we're coming, and if so, how will they try to stop us?"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Sounds ridiculous to me," states the goblin. Wart hated kender and he felt like he was being punished by his master. He didn't want to be a hero, he just wanted to find herbs and steal spells from his master when he wasn't around. "But I was told to help.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Ghostbuster smiles."Allright! And no Jorgan,they don't know we're coming. But they still have great defenses around each scroll,that will only grow as they discover about us."The kenders smile widens and brightens."They'll send thier most powerful minions and monsters against us!"
He rubs his hands together and begins to list them."Death Knights, Manticours,vampire kender,hellhounds, Many headed griffons, all sorts of Undead..."Ghostbuster shivers with pleasure."And thats just the start..."
He rapidly comes to."Anway.You guys get to know each other, I need to get the whereabouts of the first piece of scroll from my god."
OOC: I'll be gone from the forums for about a week or so (maybe less),so just get to know one another or whatever.I like this thread,and I won't let it die. I'll be back.

An elf appears at the edge of the clearing, walking alone with a rapier at his side, he stops for a second taking in the situation in which he had came across, knowing that this situation could be very dangerous, but being as curious as a kender he had to find out what they were doing out here, so many of them, and seeming so powerful, *this will make a great story if they let me tag along* The Bard then makes his move and begins to advance toward the band of travelers.

04/17/2001 12:45 PM

An old bronze dragon clumsily lands near the group throwing his rider from his back in the process. The thrown warrior slowly rises rubbing his shoulder. Drawing his longsword, he advances on the dragon.

"Damn, you dragon that's it. It's time to end this," the young warroir raises his sword attempting to strike but promptly swatted away by the old bronze.

Looking up after shaking his head clear, the warrior looked into the silver eyes of a young elf female. Hurriedly getting to his feet, he dusted himself off and bowed to the elf.

"My name is Tantric and I am at your service, my lady," Tantric said with a slight blush. Turning to look around the clearing, Tantric nodded and began to speak to the group, "I assume I am in the right place. I guess the old dragon is good for something after all even if he did try to land us in a hobgoblin camp no too far from here."

After finding a comfortable seat on the now sleeping bronze and pulling his flask of spirts from his pack, he asked, "So can anyone explain what we've missed? Old Skyreaver here doesn't fly as fast as he used to."It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Quite frusterated by all the interruptions Kilborne looked up from his pile of now uprooted herbs . The old mage sighed in agrrivation and proceeded to fill in the newcomer, snorting , sneering, and generally speaking down to the warrior. Turning back to Ghostbuster the red robe cast an irritated glance down at the Kender.
"Details!"

04/18/2001 4:38 AM

Katyr thought over what Ghost had just told them *sounds like fun* she thought to herself. She noticed a young warrior glancing in her direction and turned to confront him, when she did a huge smile appeared on her face "Jorgan!" she waved and ran over, she embraced him and stood back to look at him. She felt strange as old emotions she had forgotten resurfaced and she wasn't sure how she felt now. She suddenly regretted her actions as she realised how much time had passed since they last saw each other. "So...um....how are you?" she blushed.

He looks away, embarassed.

"I haven't seen you for a long time, and it's my fault. I'm sorry. I never should have left. I hope you can forgive me. I...never mind."

He turns away, and adresses the gathered crowd.

"Well! How are we all today?"

Wart was bored with the others but he had noticed that the red robe mage had found some nice herbs. The goblin wandered over to Kilborne and began to go through some of the herbs the mage had uprooted. "Can't find this in the marsh," wheezes the goblin. "Mind if I have some?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Durning his berating from the red robe, Tantric looks upon his informer with an amused expression.

After he had been informed and the red robe had returned to his gathering, he said "Hey Mirror, that guy seems a bit uptight. He should probably loosen his breeches just a tad."

Rising from his seat on hi dragon, Tantric walked around the group introducing himself to everyone. Stopping in front of a large warrior, he noticed an uncomfortable expression across his face.

"Hey big guy. Want a drink? It always makes me feel better," Tantric said raising his flask to the large man.It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

The Bard thought to himself *another dragon, what in the world is going on, and why didn't anyone tell me about it?* Well here I go, The elf approces the new arrival (Tantric) and the large warrior he is conversating with the large warrior (Jorgan). "Pardon me good sirs, but what manner of gathering could this be to attract so many great warriors as yourselve's, and if you dont mind me asking would their be anyplace in your group for a wandering teller of tails?"

04/18/2001 3:17 PM

"You may want to go ask the red robed mage over there. He's in a really good mood and seems to really enjoy telling why we're all here," Tantric tells the bard as straight-faced as possible.

Watching the bard walk away, he whispers to the large warrior with a snicker, "If the spirits won't cheer you up, then this altercation certainly should."It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Goblin or not Kilborne always enjoyed teaching a fellow herbalist, and suprisingly enough this goblin knew some uses for certain swamp roots that Kilborne had never heard. He was copying, in his bold handwriting, some notes onto a scroll.
"So if you mix the Cahandeer root with stems from the-"
He was cut off by the Elven Bard.

Kilborne was usually rude and overbearing, but rarely angry. This interruption caused an exception to this rule, and as instinctively as most mages called spells to mind, the old man called many a slow-death causing recipe.

"WHAAAAAAT!" The mage screamed up into the face of the suprised elf.

"Can your simple mind not comprehend that me and my friend here are VERY BUSY?" His voice rose to amazingly powerful levels for such an old man on those last two words.

"ASK the Sargas be DAMNED kender over there. Perhaps he'll fill you in and in the process hopefully rob your dim-minded body BLIND. Now if you don't MIND!!!!" Kilborne turned back to Wart.

"Sorry about that friend, please continue..."

Mirror watched the whole scene from where she was standing, and saw the bemused and rather windswept look on the elven bards features once the old mage had finished with his yelling. She quickly walked over to him and dragged him away from the mage while he was still dazed enough to be led. "Alex, I'm Mirror. We have met before, have we not?" She heared the chuckles from Tantric and Jargon and turned towards them, a piercing look in her reflective eyes. Once she had got a safe distance away from the mage she turned to Alex. "So, what brings you to this clearing then?" she asks, trying to make polite conversation, which did not come easy to her.Mirror.

04/19/2001 12:05 AM

Katyr was highly amused at the old mages outburst but felt sorry for Alex, she had a feeling that all of them would have to endure a telling off from the red robe by the end of this quest.

She watched as Jorgan and Tantric stood together and thought to herself, she didn't blame Jorgan nor was she upset with him. Once again she had no idea what was going on inside his head and he was still having a hard time showing his feelings. She sighed "the best thing to do is just see what happens" she said quietly to herself.

Wart continued to talk about different herbs from the swamp. "Marsharm is a very powerful herbs that can be used to make poison. Would you like to trade for some?" asks the goblin to his new "friend.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Tantric has a hearty laugh at the bard's expense, but is interupted by the cold glare from Mirror. His laughter ceases and his cheeks flush slightly.

Trying to hide his embarrassment he takes another drink and turns to the big warrior, "What's wrong big fella? That spectacle should've gotten a better laugh than that." Holding the flask out again he says, "Take a drink and let the spirits wash away your problems. If not forever, then for the time being at least"It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

"Well, yes, I'm okay I guess. Thank you."

Jorgan takes the flask and takes a long, strong drink.

"*hack* *hack* *cough* Kinda...STRONG ain't it?"

Jorgan smiles, and eyes the group.

How many times have i had to do this? I can't beleive it...and not once have I managed to NOT make a fool of myself in front of the ladies. Like once, we were climbing this cliff....."

Jorgan goes on to tell a very embarassing, very funny, story. Anyone listening can't help but to smile.

"......So when he said 'I told you not to touch the blue one' I reached over and smacked him. I had learned that much! So I fixed the hole in my breaches, smiled modestly, and hid in my tent for the rest of the night. I could hear them laughing in their tent for half the night....it was so embarassing!"

Jorgan takes another drink, and hands the flask back, now almost empty.

"Well, it's getting kind of dark, what do you guys say we pitch camp for the night?"

Jorgan reaches into his bag, and searches through it quickly.

The bronze dragon raised his head and smiled at the warrior. "I wouldn't exactly call you a hero," he smirked.

"What? How dare you," Tantric exclaimed before he crumpled to the ground and began snoring loudly.

"Sleep spell. Works every time," the dragon laughed. "The rest of you may also sleep. I will take the watch for what will be your last good night's sleep for quite a while."It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Mirror sat down, her back against a tree trunk and watched as the others all settled down to slumber. She looked at them all with envy in her heart. If only she could sleep that easily! Ever since the death of her sister, sleep had been a fleeting pleasure that she experienced rarely and her body had grown accustomed to the lack of this privalige. *If only Triton were here,* she thought to herself. *He would hold me and not care if I slept or not, he would just be glad to be near me.* But he wasn't with her, and instead of becoming sad dwelling on the subject she pushed him to the back of her mind and produced her spell book, drawing a thick silver cloak around her shoulders and began to study the spells contained within.Mirror.

Kilborne produced two books from a small sack. The first was his spell book and Kilborne got right down to studying. The lack of light did not bother him, it was the blessing and the curse of his Testing at Wayreth that his eyes be as sensitive to light as a dwarf's. Unfortunately unlike most dwarves Kilborne had trouble with bright light, and hence wore a pair of smoked glasses during the sunny hours of the day. The weather beaten mage was eager to finish his spell studying so that he could continue onto his herbalist's book.

After finding a stream to wash the dirt off his herbs, Wart eventually made his way back to the camp. After some time, the goblin fell asleep and had nightmares about failing his master and the different punishments he received."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

And as our guest quitely fall asleep, Jorgan sits at the fire and ponders. When the bronze asks him why he does not sleep, he replies truthfullt, telling him that he suffers from insomnia, but that he does not wish to sleep yet, he has many things to think about. The appearance of Katyr had somewhat startled him, he had not expected to run into her again. When he had left her companionship months ago, he had gone off in tow with his brother Duncan, but had parted ways shortly after, they had never gotten along very well. Jorgan just wandered, thoughts of Katyr entering his mind on occasion. He was embarassed that he had taken the easy way out of the situation by running away with his brother. Now they were together again, just feet from each other but he could not bring himself to even look at her without shame. He had abandoned her when she needed him, and as far as he was concerned......he wasn't worth her effort.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

04/21/2001 9:54 PM

Katyr awakens early in the morning and dresses, she hopes no one else is awake yet. As she leaves her tent she rubs her eyes and looks out across the campsite, her eyes rest on Jorgan who is sitting near the campfire. He looks up and sees her so she waves "Good Morning, did you..uh..sleep well?" she asks him. She feels awkward which is strange because she only ever felt comfortable around him all those years before. Things have changed she guessed.

Mirror
04/21/2001 10:36 PM

Mirror sits on a large rock just beyond the clearing and watches the sun rise. How beautiful it is!! Once again, she wishes that she did not feel so alone, wishes that Triton was with her. But he wasn't. She would just have to accept that fact and get on with her life.
He thoughts then turned to her sister. She remembered how the two of them used to sit together and watch the sun rise and set at the end and beginning of each day. She smiled as she remembered how her older sister would regale her with fantastic stories of the War of the Lance, telling her about the companions, how they met and the adventures they had together. Mirror had always wanted to be part of a group like that. Not just for the adventure, but for the friendship aswell. She wanted so much to have friends. Suddenly she realised that she was in such a group now, a group of adventurers to rival the heroes of the lance! If only she wasn't so shy! She made a silent pact with herself to become more involved in what everyone was saying and things like that. With this now decided, she thought it would be a good idea if she were to go and wash before settling down with everyone to have breakfast.
She wondered until she found a small stream, took off her clothes and ubmerged her body in the cool water. She bgan to wash herself, letting the water gently trickle over her exposed body as she did so. Suddenly, she heared a noise from the bushes behind her. She turned around slowly, her hands covering her breasts to see who or what was there.............Mirror.

04/22/2001 6:33 PM

Finally rising from his magical sleep, Tantric attempted to jump up to act as though nothing had happened. Extremely disoriented, he immediately fell right back down. Taking things a bit more slowly on his second attempt, he managed to get to his feet. Looking around the campsite, he remembered what happened the night before.

"You. You did this to me," he said to the dragon. As he was going to continue into a long "talking to", the dragon winked at him and fell into his own slumber.

"Oh well, it wouldn't have done any good anyway. Damn dragon never listens," he said to himself. Tantric proceeded to stretch to loosen the muscles cramped by the unnatural sleep. "Whew," he said as he smelled himself. "I really need a bath. I don't think I've ever smelled this bad. Not good for my reputation, I can't be a real hero if I smell like a goblin."

Tantric proceeded towards the stream but halted his steps when he noticed something moving ahead of him. Not able to discern the movment ahead, he decided to follow at safe distance. Stopping short of the stream, Tantric saw Mirror bathing in the river. Quite unusual for the young warrior, he paid no attention to the naked woman. Drawing his bow, he patiently waited for his target to make a move.It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

04/22/2001 11:43 PM

Mirror continued to look into the shrubbery and noticed two gleaming eyes staring out at her, the evil in them apparant. The creature began to move forward and as it emerged from the bushes, she could see it was a large wild boar. She looked at the pointed tusks, the slavering maw and watched as it's hoof began to paw the ground getting ready to charge. In one swift movement she was out of the river and standing facing the beast with her small hunting knife in her hand. The fact that she was naked no longer mattered to her. She waited for her "enemy" to make the first move........ Mirror.

04/22/2001 11:58 PM

Wart awoke with a snort to the sounds "smell like a goblin." The runt wasn't sure what it meant and frankly he didn't care. He was just glad to be awake, for now he wasn't dreaming of his master peeling back his flesh and feeding it to basalisks.

"I'm hungry, does anyone have any meat so I can make some stew?" asks the goblin. "Not waiting for a response the goblin begins to rifle through unattended packs (anyone who is not currently in the camp) looking for something to cook in."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr
04/23/2001 6:34 AM

Katyr hears the mention of food and realises just how hungry she is "I'll help, i have some vegetables that should still be okay."
She kneels down next to Wart and smiles at him *I'm making stew with a goblin, what next!* she thought to herself, her stomach grumbled loudly and she started to chop the vegetables with a dagger not caring about the strange situation.
"Hey do you think you have any herbs we could use in this stew? its going to need flavour if we can't find any meat."

She continued to chop the vegetables then stopped and looked up at the others "You know Mirror has been gone for awhile, do you think she's okay?" little did she know.....

Tantric
04/23/2001 2:00 PM

Tantric watched the creature emerge from the woods and into the light revealing itself as a boar. While still a large and dangerous animal, the boar was nothing for the warrior to be worried about. Watching Mirror swiftly move from the river to the bank with her knife in hand, Tantric decided to see how this turned out.

Moving into a better vantage point, he kept his bow aimed at the beast's broad chest just in case. "Now let's see how she handles this. After all I can't trust my life to someone who can't protect their own," he whispered to himself as he carefully watched the scene unfold before him.It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

04/23/2001 2:59 PM

Mirror stood stock still, waiting for the beast to move, and move it did!! It charged towards her, salavating as it did so, it's long tusks glinting in the dawn light. Mirror dodged to one side swiftly and effortlessly (I know I spelt that wrong but I just can't think!!!!!!!!!!!!), dagger still in hand. She remembered one of the few lessons her father had taught her before he lost himself in the bottom of a flask of dwarf spirits - *When hunting boars, always make sure to attack them from behind! Their tusks are their main weapons-without which they are useless.......*. So, she decided quickly to take her fathers advise. As the boar charged passed her, she lept on it's back, pushing it to the ground. She then found it's soft under-belly and let her dagger sink right in up to the hilt. She knew she had made a kill shot because the beast shuddered for a moment and then was still.
She entangled herself from the boar and stood up straight, examining herself for any injuries. Just a few minor cuts and bruises. She looked down at the boar, her naked skin glissening softly in the dawn rays from a mixture of water droplets from the river and sweat from her encounter. She was about to wash the blood off her when she started at another sound from the bushes. This one, however, sounded a lot like someone clapping...................Mirror.

04/23/2001 3:11 PM

Wart found a helmet, probably the warrior that had sprinted off into the woods. That would do to cook in. The goblin placed it over the fire and filled it with some water. He let Katyr add some vegetables and he added some of his herbs that he kept for cooking. "Now all we need is some meat," said the goblin."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Tantric
04/23/2001 3:15 PM

"Good show," Tantric said as he emerged from the woods still clapping. "I didn't think you'd get him that easily."

Still walking towards Mirror and the boar, he said, "Quite a big fella too. Looks like we'll ourselves a nice breakfast this morning."

After tying a length of rope around the beast's legs, he turned towards the woods and started to pull the boar back to camp. Struggling some with beast's massive weight, he smiled at Mirror and said," Are you just going to stand there and distract me or put some clothes on help?" It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Katyr
04/24/2001 12:04 AM

Katyr stood as she saw Mirror and Tantric re-entered the camp. "Where have you been?" she asked then she spied the large meaty Boar and turned to Wart "Well, there's your meat, looks like we have enough for lunch and dinner aswell!."

04/24/2001 8:08 AM

(OOC: He said he would be back in a week or so. He should be returning any day now. If anyone has any ideas to keep us from abandoning this thread I'm all ears.)

After hauling the boar back back to camp, raised his arms to wipe the sweat from his face and once again smelled himself.

Wrinkling his nose in disgust, he said," Dammit, I went to the stream to bathe and I come back smelling worse. The goblin is probably more fragrant than I am right now. Save me some food, I'm going to wash up." He grabs his pack and starts walking towards the stream. "And Mirror, don't even think of following me just to return the favor and get a look at the goods," he says with a cocky smile while flexing his muscles.
It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

"We have finished cooking breakfast yet, and I'm hungry," whined Wart. "Bring some of that meat over here. It'll be perfect." The goblin pulled out a knife, ready to start carving into the boar. He also laughed to himself, knowing that Tantric would be missing his helmet because it now held boiling water and cooking meat."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Mirror
04/24/2001 11:44 AM

Mirror gave a crooked grin to herself-that Tantric was too cocky for his own good!! It had never crossed her mind at all to spy on him to see if all the rumors were true(she lied to herself!)!!! Still, he did need to be taught a lesson. She said hello to the kender and guaged that she had plenty of time to make her plan work before they left camp, what with Wart complaining about his belly and all!!
She stole quietly back down to the river, her elven feet not making a sound. She peered through the bushes to see tantric stripping off his clothes and tossing them carelessly on the ground not a few feet from her. Excellent! She just stood there for a little while as Tantric turned round and gave her a full frontal flash. *Well, I guess the rumors are true then!!!* she smiled to herself. She quickly reminded herself of why she was there, and as Tantric began to sing to himself as he began to was, she crept out of the bushes behind him and grabbed his collection of clothes from off the bank, rushing back to camp as quickly as possible. The only sign of her passing was a loud, mischevious giggle........Mirror.

Tantric
04/24/2001 12:06 PM

Pulling himself from the river, Tantric caught his reflection in a pool that formed along the bank.

"Yes, sir. You are a stud aren't you," he said admiring himself. "Look at yourself. You couldn't look any better if Mishkahal herself had sculpted you," he said to himself and then shuddered at the thought of Reorx sculpting him. That thought just made him feel "icky".

Turning to his clothes to get dressed, he finally realized they weren't there. "Well dammit," he said among a variety of other explatives. "Somebody stole my stuff. I can get more clothes and a sword but that mace was irreplacable," he said with a look of sadness crossing face.

With a sigh, he continued, "Oh well, I don't have time to look for it now. I've got help save the world."

As he started back for camp he noticed something shiny lying near the trail, "Whoever was here, dropped my flask," he said picking it up and taking a drink. "Maybe someone from camp caught the thief," he said as he nonchalantly made his way back to camp.

About halfway back, "I guess Mirror will get to see the goods after all," he laughed as he looked down at his naked body.

Finally back at camp, Tantric emerged from the trail wearing nothing but a leaf he managed to keep on with a thin piece of vine and said," Is breakfast ready yet? I'm starved."It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Mirror, having hidden all of Tantric's belongings in amongst some shrubbery assumed a dissinterested pose against a large tree, just as Tantric arrived back. She turned towards him, a mischevious look on her face. Amidst wolf whistles and the such at the expense of Tantric, she walked up behind him, pinching his naked rear end. "Well, what do we have here then?!" she said with a raised eyebrow. She stalked around him, "Not bad, not bad..." she mused, surveying his naked body. She walked right up to him until their bodies were almost touching. "However," she said to him, making a motion as to move in to kiss him, "I think it would be more entertaining this way!" At the last moment before their lips met she pulled away from him, taking with her the "leaf thong" at the same time with one, swift tug."Ha Ha

Refusing to give Mirror the satisfaction, he hid his embarrassment beneath his cocky exterior (no pun intended), he said nonchalantly, "Now all my clothes have been stolen. I guess I am meant to undertake this journey naked."

Walking over to where breakfast was being served, he squated down and grabbed a bowl. "Hey, is that my helmet? It must be. What I sight I'll make fighting the minions of evil wearing nothing but my helmet," he laughed. It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Suddenly, a human male, a woman, a gnome and a cleric approach. Taylor Magetaunter turns to the cleric. "Looks like your goddess was right. They are here."

Looking around, he say Tantric. "Hey Tantric, remember me? I was there when Galan raised all those skeletons and destroyed some local sceneroy, and when he killed me at that inn. (OOC: See "Bring it Tay....", "Journay to Mt. Nevermore" and "Uziel, Galan, BRING IT!!" for details). But you had clothes on then. Hey, is that boar meat?"

Taylor sits by the goblin, takes some meat out of Tantic's helmant, and starts to chew.

04/24/2001 10:34 PM

Gaia looked shocked at the sight that was infront of her. She had never seen a man naked before and the sight made her feel funny inside. Then, she began to giggle as she watched him walk around. He did look funny!!!!! She then noticed Mirror out the corner of her eyes, laughing so hard tears were streaming down her cheeks. The two frinds went up to each other and joined in a frindly hug.

"It's been a long time since I last saw you Mirror!" Gaia said as she looked her old friend up and down.

"I know, too long! Back then you were only a trainee cleric, now you've gone the whole hog!!" Mirror beamed at her, proud that she had accomplished her dream.

"Yes, I made it as a cleric, but only just! This is my first time outside of the temple, and I have to say I did not intend to run into a naked man!!"

Remembering her friends vow of chastity and the fact that she had never seen a naked man before, Mirror decided to remedy the situation.
"Well, Tantric, had enough of walking about naked yet? Shall I give you back your clothes now or later? I know, lets play a game of truth or dare!!" She grinned to herself at this point. "for every question you answer truthfully, you get a garment back. Answer falsely and you stay naked a bit longer. And be warned, I will know when you are lying!!" she looked to Gaia and Gaia nodded, understanding the plan.
"Do we have a deal Tantric?" Mirror asked, Twirling his underpants around her index finger."Ha Ha

Wart was appaled by the naked human and nearly lost his breakfast. "Give him back his clothes already. That is disgusting," says the goblin, continuing to shovel stew into his mouth, spilling some of it here and there."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

04/25/2001 5:53 AM

Katyr gobbled down the stew and licked her lips "Mmmmm...I say Wart is in charge of the cooking from now on this is delicious". She barely paid attention to Tantric running around except to have a laugh at his expense, she'd seen enough campside antics to be well used to almost anything.

She finished her meal and started to get impatient, she really wanted to get going on this quest. She tried to get the conversation heading towards that topic "So Ghost, why Flotsam?" she asked the Kender.

"Oh Hello Tantric, I havent spoken to you in quite a while. You certainly look...well....naked."

Insano removes his shoe, and sock from his left foot.

Insano throws his sock to Tantric. "Here, at least use this to cover up your privates until you get some clothes!! AND as for you Ms. Cleric, what do you think Paladine or Mishikal would say if they were here? They wouldnt be too pleased with the way you are teasing this young swordsman. Oh well, its only Tantric..continue!"
Insano chcukles for a moment. Then sits on the floor, draws a piece of parchment, a quill and a ink bottle from his pack.

"What the hell.........................."

Jorgan groans as he rolls out of the tent, his sleeping bag at around his knees.

"I smell food. And.............um............goblin. I think someone needs a shower. Oh, wait........"

"Never mind.................that's me."

"Taylor, come here," he called to the new kender. Whispering to his friend, he said, " You see that woman with my pants over there." The kender nodded. "She's got the rest of my clothes and I'm tired of standing here naked. I'm starting to get cold. Look I tried to help you when that crazy mage attacked you and I did beat up that giant kender. The least you could do for me is help me get my pants."

Kilborne finished gathering his morning samples and returned to camp. His eyebrows lifted at the scene causing his already prominent wrinkles to turn into a virtual jungle of creases. He smacked his lips with distaste and decided to end the young warrior's humility. Speaking the words of magic and moving his hands in arcane motions the Herbalist conjured up a wall of fog directly around the man.
"Enough of this nonsense!" the mage rebuked harshly. "Why don't you act like a decent lady and give the young fellow back his clothes? Perhaps I should convince Wart to 'spice' your food with some of the herbs I gave him. Why when I was younger-" the mage cut off short and nearly dove into a patch of mushrooms. "Raven's Cushions!" he exclaimed holding up a black fungus. Kilborne quickly set about sampling it.

Inkeep Offhand (will someone remind me what his first name is !?) put his arm around Gaia and gently turned her away from the scene. Turning towards the silver eyed one he asked sharply "you're her old friend right? You should know of her oath then. It's not right for her to see this." he waved his hand at the fog enshrouded man. Offhand had come to greatly care for the woman during the past few days, and he was red to his balding head with jealousy.

Katyr looked up as Jorgan emerged from his tent (though i thought he didn't have one) and watched as he headed off to the stream to wash. She looked down at her empty bowl and frowned *What is with this guy, we meet up again after years apart and he practically ignores me* she though to herself. She happened to be looking down and missed Jorgan wink at her as he left the camp. :(

She decided that she needed to know where she stood so she could get on with the quest and the future. She got up and headed towards the stream, by the time she got there she was pretty ticked off.

Jorgan was washing his face (fully clothed i might add!) and didn't see her approach. "We have to talk Jorgan, you owe me an explanation" she appeared calm and cool on the outside but butterflies were dancing wildly in her stomach. She waited for his relpy or excuse or whatever he came up with.

She spoke one word in the language of magic "Here you go then Tantric. Quick get dressed before you bring up my breakfast!" she smiled cheekily at him and went to prepare her stuff for the journey ahead.

Gaia looked at Offhand. She didn't quite know why, but she got a strange, fluttery feeling in the pit of her stomach every time he was near. She mad a mental note to ask Mirror what that feeling was when they got some time alone. "Thankyou for your gallant efforts just there Mister Offhand. They were very much appreciated!""Ha Ha

"You old fool! How could you let that happen to me," he yelled at the dragon. "Damn, beast, you could've helped me out."

"I thought it was rather funny, sir," the dragon replied.

"Yeah, well, will you think it's rather funny when I split open your head," Tantric returned.

"No sir, not at all," the dragon said sarcastically as drifted back off to sleep.

After being cut off by the dragon's sleep, Tantric decided to find out what they were doing here. Finding the kender cleric, he asked, "So Ghostbuster, what's the plan?"It appears the strain was more than he could bear...

Jorgan groans.

"Oh shit."

He finishes drying off his face and smiles his cocky grin.

"I figured you would. Well, I don't have much of one. I got scared. I ran away. I left you. I could have taken that dragon, but I was too scared. When I regained my composure I went back, but you were nowhere to be found. I mourned. I thought that you were dead. I mourned for a long time. I loved you, Katyr. I still do. Maybe that's why Palidine chose us for this. Maybe he does have a sense of humor."

Jorgan turns, hiding his face, and looks out over the stream.

OOC: He really did have a tent, he was just saying he didn't to see what her reaction would be. As for their past couple years..........I'm just making it up as I go. Feel free to add in.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(OOC: Let's say Wort told me about the quest, but forgot to mention the part about Ghostbuster. Oh, and Gaia, what god DO you worship? You've probably mentioned it before, but I forgot.)

After finishing his meat, he looks up and notices another kender. He jumps up and runs over to him, and sticks out his hand to shake.

OOC:Ah,so at last some people remember that there's a quest here beside wet dreams about naked guys.
Ghostbuster,who had tried counting the number of 'heros' appearing and had given up after 15, smiles at his fellow kender.He takes his hand and starts shaking vigoursly,cleaning it of any rings and bracelets that were there. "Wow!You're Taylor Magetaunter! My sister has posters of you everywhere in her room!Nice to meet you!"
The kender cleric lets go of Taylors hand."Oh,we got some mission!We're gonna steal some scrolls from under a few evil Gods noses!And the first piece of scroll is in Flotsam,we're were gonna go now."
Ghostbuster smiles in anticapation of his newest spell,given to him by Fizban for this quest. "Fizban,Paladine,Platinum Hat-er,Dragon,lend me your power!" The cleric gestures,and a portal of white light opens in the middle of the clearing."Everybody in,we got to this quickly or the EG's(evil gods) will sense the portal.Come on,get in,i'm last!"

Watching the two kender introduce each other and unknowingly exchange a few items, Tantric begins to check his gear to be sure he's ready to go. Satisfied with what he finds, he looks up see a large portal before him.

"What the hell is that," he says as Taylor jumps into the portal. He looks to Mirror to see if she has a clue but her dumbfounded expression answers his question for him.

"If the kender can do it so can I. See you in Flotsam, Mirror," he says while jumping into the portal.I'm your huckleberry.

04/26/2001 3:14 PM

Katyr listened to Jorgans words and smiled. She had been expecting him to say something along the lines of 'it was fun babe but hey!' what she actually heard was the old Jorgan she knew all those years ago.

She walked up to him and embraced him, "Pretty funny sense of humor!" she said sarcastically. The two stood holding one another for awhile when a sudden white light came streaming through the trees from the campsite.

"Shit we better go!" Katyr said and grabbed Jorgans hand, the two ran into the campsite and grabbed their belongings just in time to hear Taylor say 'we need to get going' they watched as he and the others walked into the portal and disappeared. Katyr looked up at Jorgan and he squeezed her hand reassuringly. The two followed the others through the portal and beyond.

"Katyr, we must hurry back, they're already leaving. If we don't hurry we'll miss out on all the fun!"

Kilborne looked up at the silver-white light. "Aack!" the mage threw his hands over his eyes and stumbled towards the portal. As he struggled past Ghostbuster and into the portal he called back, "next time can you tone down the flashes a bit!?"

04/26/2001 4:59 PM

Mandell (yes I remembered the name) cast a sorrowful glance down at Insano, knowing that his friend would be frustrated with the interruption. The poor gnome had been working on his Gnomeflinger plans for so long! Cringing and feeling quite guilty he tapped Insano on the shoulder. "Ummm... Insano, we've got to head into that swirling white portal thing." Looking back the man caught Gaia's eye. Offhand was almost paralyzed with fear at the thought of entering the gate. He hoped that the young cleric couldn't tell.

The_Thorn
04/26/2001 6:36 PM

Wart shut his eyes and walked through the portal. He hoped to see everyone on the other side."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Insano
04/26/2001 7:34 PM

After being tapped on the shoulder by the friendly inkeep, Insano jumps about 3 feet in the air!

"Oh codfound it all!! Well, I supose being a gnomish hero....of sorts.... does have it's ups and downs! Well perhaps going through this portal will give me a moment to study the physics of human movment!!"

Insano quickly picks up all of his belongings and runs over to his Kender friend Tay with Mandell following behind.

"Well, come on Tay, I suppose its all the same in retrospect...what, with being magiced an all, Oh, who is your friend, the one who summoned us here? Revered son Ghostbuster, pleased to make your aquaintance."

Insano calls Gaia over.

"Well, I suppose you are coming too! lets go!"

Insano grabs Gaia by the arm.

"Ready whenever you are....I'm not scared mind you...I just want to study your physics and regard you as we pass through the portal, and come on Tay...It wouldnt be a adventure without myself, Gaia, Tay and the good ol' Mandell"

Mirror was the last one left standing in the clearing, Gaia being dragged off by a gnome and the others jumping in. She gave a silent prayer to the god's of magic and leaped into the portal, hoping she'd have a soft landing. She had a lucky break, landing on top of Tantrics soft and squidgy rear end!"Ha Ha

04/27/2001 4:49 PM

Insano was the first to land with a klunk outside the portal in Flotsam. Judging by the stench, they had landed in a alleyway near the prives.

"Phew..what is that peutrid smell? Its too smelly to be that goblin.... ARG!"

Suddenly Tantric falls through the portal, and Mirror lands on top of him with an "oof"

"NEAT!!! I suppose the physics is totally differnt when using magic, or clerical spells....I'll need to include this in a report seeing as I entered the portal second last...and came out first."

Insano sits on the ground drawing up more diagrams while he waits for the other heroes to clunk in.True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

Taylor Magetaunter lands next to Insano, landing on his feet.

"Neat. I love being magiked. It's very interesting."

Taylor looks around. He sees Insano standing in next to him, Tantric laying on the ground, and Mirror siting on Tantric's rear end. He thinks to himself, 'This is just to easy of a joke.'

"Mirror, shouldn't Tantric be on his back, with you laying on him, instead of sitting on him?"

Taylor starts laughing.Kender Proverb #1:

Mirror smiles chekily at the kender, "Well, Tay, that is normally the way it goes," she bent down close to Tantric's neck and gave it a little stroke with her index finger, "but I don't think he could handle me!!! Y'all saw what he looked like back there!!!" she giggled, waving her little finger in the air.

She noticed that Gaia and Mandel had arrived next to them, on their feet, with Mandel holding Gaia protectivly whilst she, herself, looked terrified. Mirror saw the look in the innkeeps eyes as he looked at Gaia, and again reminded herself that she needed to have a talk with her niaeve friend."Ha Ha

Tantric jumps up after Mirror's comment tossing her off his back. A quick retort comes to his mind but he decides to it to himself for once not wanting to start the situation for the camp over again. Deciding to get revenge at a latter time he says, "Where are we? If I'm going to travel around with this kind of treatment, I'm need to find a drink." Walking to the end of the alley, he looks around the city. "I don't remember this part of the city. Taylor, I'm sure you've been here before. Any ideas where we are?"I'm your huckleberry.

"Phew!" the stench was overwhelming to Kilborne's sensitive nose. Reaching into his pack the herbalist pulled out a bundle of some grassy substance. Conjuring up a flame, the mage lit the end of the bundle and held it aloft over his head. A lovely smell filled the air banishing the stench of Flotsam... almost.

RedSteel75
04/28/2001 3:00 PM

Mandell removed his arm from around Gaia and plugged his nose. Patting Insano he sarcastically asked, "So, enjoying your study on the reactions of noses to smells like this?" looking to his right he saw Kilborne waving a burning bundle in the air and banishing the smell a bit. The inkeep looked down at his companions and jerked a thumb towards the mage, "I think we ought to stand near him. At least until we're out of this place."

Mirror
04/28/2001 3:11 PM

Mirror huddled around Kilborne while waiting to see if Ghostbuster would arrive, and found herself standing next to Gaia. "You and me need to have a talk," Mirror said quietly to her, noticing the fact that Mandell didn't take his eyes off her, "we need to talk about.....ummmm........men!" she said at last.
Gaia looked puzzeled at her friend, not sure what she meant. She then looked over her firnds dhoulder and caught Tantric staring at Mirror's back, seeming to almost bore a hole into her very soul, "And I think I need to have a talk with you too, about Tantric. Now, I don't know what you are playing at but...." she was stopped in mid sentance by a hand strategically placed in front of her face. She looked around it and stared with defiance at Mirror. "You'll have to listen to me sometime you know!!" she fumed, as much to herself as anyone. She then returned to examining their surroundings, and decided that she would really rather be at home, nice and safe in the Temple of Mishkail. But seen as she wasn't, she uttered the same thing that everyone else was thinking. "Where is Ghostbuster?" "Ha Ha

OOC:Everyone in?If not,consider yourself in.And Tay,if you'll check closely, you'll find i'm allowed some borrowing,just not really important things.
Ghostbuster watches as everyone walks through the portal,giggling at everyone,but mostly at the inkeeper and the cleric.He could predict where that was going without any powers at all! As the last hero(ine) goes through,he looks to the assembelled dragons behind him,says "We'll be back.I hope.",and jumps into the white light.
He lands on Mirror,pushing her off Tantrics bum and taking her place.He looks around in the magicans light."Everyone here?Where's Tantric?" the kender looks down."Oh,sorry.Clumsy me." Ghostbuster gets off and goes to stand near Kilborne.
"Everyone understand our quest here,I hope.To find the scroll.Whatever fighting skills everyone has will be most important,since this particular Evil Goddess dislikes magic.She has putten a non-magic spell on the entire city.Everyone out of here,so we can see what we are facing."
The kender cajoles the heros outside,where they can see the changes that had occured in Flotsam. Fully half off the city was gone.In its place stood a huge pink Castle,made in the image of a spider.A pink spider.It has only three entrances,all on the same side of it.Those are gaurded by a small army of what seem to be men with the faces of lions."You see those gates?"Ghostbuster says,his shrill voice strange against the silence imposed by the monstrosity,"Those are what we have to pass.Without magic.Any ideas?"

Taylor looks at the pink spider castle.

"Hummh. No magic, huh? That probably includes clerical magic, right? Now, that makes Mirror, Gaia, Ghostbuster and some others pretty much useless. Now, there is one thing that always works when magic falls. Gnomish technology!!"

After hearing a collective groan, he turns to Insano.

"Ghost, are you sure all three doors are real entrances? knowing evil godesses only one door will lead straight into the castle while the other two will be traps".

Wart pops out of nowhere, smelling as bad as Flotsam itself. "I know how to get in, but you have to trust my buddies," he says, pointing at a couple of goblins who were going through the garbage. "They say there is another entrance through the sewers. They should know, they live down there, amongst other things," he mumbles."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Insano
04/28/2001 9:49 PM

Insano, after hearing Tay chime his name, surveys the "spider castle" gates.

"Hummmm, lets see....what do I have. Well, I suppose I could go a few blocks over to my workshop and get my gnomeflinger, and fling someone over the gates, then they can open it up from the inside....but, I dont know if anyone is willing to risk it. It will take me a moment to adjust the calibrations so that the person wont splatter on impact. Well, if anyone is willing, just say so and I'll go get it.
Oh, Revered Son Ghostbuster.....I'm afraid I am rather 'lacking' in fighting skills, you see....all I can really do is invent stuff and clunk people on the head with wrenches, so EVERYONE try no to depend on me too much in a fighting situation."True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

She turned to Wart "If your friends are willing to help go get them, but at the first sign that we can't trust them I won't hesitate to kill them" she emphasized this with her hand on the hilt of her sword.

TayJK
04/29/2001 9:07 AM

Taylor looks at Insano, sighs, then looks at Katyr.

"I agree with you, Katyr. Just don't stab them. It's impossible to get the smell of the weapon afterwards."

Taylor looks at Ghostbuster.

"Maybe Insano can hurl some rocks at the tower, then run to join us. The guards will be busy looking for the gnomeflinger, while we get in through the sewers. After they find the gnomeflinger, they will up the guards at the gates, leaving less guards inside the tower. But we will need to utilize stealth."

Taylor looks at Tantric and Mirror.

"Looks like those baths were all for nothing, huh?"

Taylor looks back at Ghostbuster.

"What exactly are those guards? Human, goblin? Undead? And will magical items work?"Kender Proverb #1:

Kilborne sighed. No magic? what had these fools brought him along for then? A tought came to him.
"Kender, you said there is an anti-magic feild over the ENTIRE city? Well I agree. Just a moment ago I attempted to divine the castle and got nothing but a blur and a headache, but when I lit the end of this bundle I had no trouble conjuring up the flame. Apparently if the magic isn't directed towards the goddess, her castle, or her minions, it will be allowed."

The old mage reached into his pack and retrieved several dried leaves which he crushed in his hands and swallowed. "for the headache" he explained.

RedSteel75
04/29/2001 9:59 AM

Mandell was watching the castle's minions closely. They didn't seem stupid to him at all. Mandell turned to the others,
"These aren't goblins, no offense to parties present, or dumb mercs' we're going up against. The lion-heads are intelligent, military trained warriors. Diversion plans won't hold up against them. And if they're anything like the animals that they represent they'll smell us the second we get out of the sewer. Regardless of the route we take there will be a battle. We're just going to need all the advantages we can get."
That said Inkeep Offhand wiped the sweat off his brow and watched the troops at the gates again. They weren't milling around bored, or sleeping on duty, they were patrolling, alert and ready. Mandell wouldn't be suprised if they already knew of the heroe's presence.

Mirror looks at Tantric, slightly embarrassed remembering the fact that he had seen her naked, and feeling ashamed at the trick she had pulled on him. She was about to appologise, saw the look in his eyes and thought better of it. She secured her hair up on topof her head, replaced the bow and arrow on her back and turned to Ghostbuster. "So, are we all ready to go into the depths of Flotsams sewer system? Oh, before we go down, here...." she handed out small balls of what seemed to be fragrent smelling herbs all bonded together with some unknown ingredient. "Put these up you nostrils, it will mask the smell a bit.""Ha Ha

After stuffing the herbs up his nose, Taylor says, slightly distorted, "Maybe they whole castle is magic resistant, as well as all of those liconains (OOC: I just made that up as a draconian pun), like completely magic resistant. As far as them smelling us when we come in, maybe this will help."

Taylor takes some amulets out of his pouch. He hands one to Wort.

"Here Wort, put this on."

Wort puts it on. Suddenly, no one can smell him.

"Great, it still works. These keep you from smelling. A hunter gave these to me so the animal we were hunting wouldn't be able to smell us coming."

He hands a magical amulet to everybody.

"Let's just hope the liconians won't be able to smell us," Taylor says as he puts his on.Kender Proverb #1:

"We can't let Insano stay out here alone with the gnomeflinger. There's no way he'll be able to get through the sewers to find us," Tantric pointed out. Looking around at the group, he continued, "Since magic is useless here, Jurgan and I have to stay with the group. So who's going to stay back and help Insano?"

Taking another look at the castle, Tantric wonders what the hell he got himself into, but more importantly he begins to wonder if helping rid the world of these new gods will redeem his past in the eyes of the institution he disgraced.I'm your huckleberry.

Wart went over to the other goblins. He spoke to them quickly and they disappeared down the alley. "They'll be back in a couple of second, but we have to pay them a little bit. Anyone have any coins?" asks the goblin. "And we should probably decide what we want to do with the gnome." Wart was sick of hearing the gnome babble. He wasn't very fond of them either."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Kilborne was alll for going into the sewers, "who knows what might be growing down here?" he wondered allowed. He had refused the nose-herbs saying that they gave him terrible headaches. He still held his burning herbs aloft and took an amulet from Tay. "too bad you can't make an amulet big enough to fit this city" he grumbled.

04/29/2001 6:54 PM

Mandell patted Insano on the shoulder. "I'll take care of the gnome, you guys will have plenty of sword-arm strength below without me." The ex-inkeep kept patting his sword hilt as if to check that it was still there.
"we need at least one more person to stay above to help with the 'flinger. So..." Offhand gave Gaia a longing stare.

Katyr
04/29/2001 8:47 PM

Katyr gets the attention of everyone "If these Lion guards are as smart as Mandell says don't you think they would somehow notice a large Gnome battle contraption being set up by a bunch of armed heroes?! They would cut us down before we even fired the first rock!"

She calms down "I still think it would be much better to go through the sewers undetected. Maybe if Insano, Mandell and perhaps Gaia stayed up here they could divert the guards attention from the entrance taking care of half of the godesses minions leaving probably only a small army inside for us to deal with." She realised then that this whole situation was a suicide mission for a stupid scroll, she sighed and turned to Mandell and Insano.

"If you use the gnome flinger on the front of the castle you will have to erect it undetected and get a half dozen good shots in before they come after you. Hopefully they will send out more guards from inside but only if they believe that they are under attack." she turns to Insano "You somehow have to make the guards beleive that an intire army is attacking them, do you have any more inventions that would give that impression?"

Mirror
04/29/2001 10:23 PM

Gaia looked at the group. "OK, I'll stay up here, especially seen as my clerical skills will probably not be missed considering we cannot use magic." She smiled at Mirror, "Take care of yourself, old friend!"

Mirror smiled back and dragged her off to one side. "You make sure you take care of yourself too!" she said. "Do you not realise that Mandell is in love with you? Are you sure you want to get involved in something like that?" Mirror watched as her frind digested the information slowly and carefully.

Gaia turned and looked into her friends reflective eyes. "You really think so? You really think he's in love with me?" she beamed, her face lighting up with joy.

This was not the response Mirror had hoped for. "You know nothing of men!!! I don't want him to take advantage of you and then leave you standing! I don't want you to get hurt and that is inevitably what will happen!"

"Your just jealous!!!" Gaia retorted angrilly, "Your jealous because Triton hasn't been in touch with you for a long while and you still love him. Your also jealous because you are developing feelings for Tantric over there and he doesn't want you either! Your going to be a lonely old elf-maid for the rest of your life, and I for one am glad!!" she spat out at her friend, loud enough for everyone to hear.

Mirror clenched and un clenched her fists, trying to dispell the urge to slap Gaia across the face. Her eyes began to well up at the enormity of what Gaia had just said to her, the hurtful words stabbing her like so many daggers. She turned and walked away to stand by the sewer entrance."Ha Ha

Ghostbuster looks at the goblins Wart had brought thoughtfully.A few ideas that had been stirring in his brain come to the fore."Taylor,i'm sorry,once we get into the castle nothing of magic works,no matter how directed.Item or spell."
The kender smiles."But...we can use the smell of the sewer against them.We could send someone in through the sewers.The lion men will do anything they can do kill him,since he's already inside,and they will know he's inside because of the smell. They will leave thier posts,and then we can enter,overpowering the few gaurds left."
"We need someone to volunteer as the diversion.It has to be somone small, fast,and clever enough to escape from them and re-join us..." Ghostbuster looks over the group,and his eyes settle on Wart.The kender cleric grins amiably at the goblin.
"Mr Darcy, I am undone... your britches are magnificent...

Katyr thought Ghosts idea over "When we get inside we will be trapped and we will have to face not only the guards patrolling inside but also the guards that have come from their posts outside, how are we going to fight Lion beasts that completely outnumber us? and what happens if only half go inside and there are still 30 odd lion guards on the door?"

Katyr thought for a moment "It will be night in a few hours, what if we wait for the night and use the darkness and the fact that the Lions will be more tired to our advantage?" she waited for Ghosts reply knowing that as leader his decision was final and what ever he decided she would go along with.

Jorgan, until know had remained quiet. But he could no longer stand it.

"You guys are about the biggest bunch of pansies I've ever seen!!! Katyr, we've taken toogher than these guys. Screw all this bullshit! I'm going in!"

Jorgan draws his swords, and rushes headlong down the street towards the doors.

04/30/2001 10:16 AM

Tantric watches the big man run down the street towards the castle and his blood begins to burn with the anticipation of battle.

"Now that's what I call a plan. If you guys still want to go through the sewers, here's your diversion," he says before he draws his weapons and takes off down the street after Jorgan.I'm your huckleberry.

Taylor was torn between going with Tantric to attack, going with Ghostbuster through the sewers, or going with Insano to set up the gnomeflinger. Finally, he decided.

"Tantric, wait up!!"

Taylor takes a small crossbow out of a pouch, along with some ammo. He checks his dagger, then aims and shoots a lion head right in the chest, then he falls to the ground. He then grabs a small ball with a sting coming out of it from another pouch.

"Gnomish smokepowder," He mutters. He sets down the crossbow, light the string with flint and steel, then throw the ball at the entrance Tantric and Jordan weren't attacking. After a few second, Taylor hears a satisfing BOOM!! Most of the lion heads at that entrance fall down, either unconcious, wounded, or dead. The remaining lion heads start charging there position. Taylor turns to Ghostbuster.

"So, is this going to be the distraction, or is Wart going into the sewer?"Kender Proverb #1:

"sod this for a laugh, I'm off!!!! Hey wait up!!" Mirror yelled after Tantric, Jorgan and Tay. She needed to vent her anger somewhere, and this seemed to be the perfect time and place!!!!!! She drew her bow and arrow and charged forward with a rather loud battle cry!"Ha Ha

Insano
04/30/2001 12:44 PM

As soon as the heroes charged the gates, Insano quickly runs to his workshop, and gets his gnomeflinger out, and attached to his jack-ass along with some boulders, and pulls it towards the fortress gates.

The gnomeflinger is already loaded with one boulder, which Insano looses upon the fortress. The boulder strikes a spire, which crumbles down to the fortess courtyard.

"Hey, Offhand, if you are going to help me, get your arse over here and help me re-load this thing!!"

Insano heres the cries erupting from the gate, it sounds as though the heroes who led the charge against the gate aren't faring as well as they hoped...

Wart took the moments distraction to slip into the sewers. He followed the other goblins down several twists and turns. Eventually they slowed, when one of the other goblins, Clod, turned and told him they were nearing the basement entrance. Wart nodded, knowing that once he wasinside he wouldn't have a lot of time until they found him."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr
04/30/2001 10:36 PM

Katyr watched as Jorgan ran blindly towards the temple and frowned, what he had said really pissed her off, no one ever called her a coward!

She agreed that a few years ago she would have ran stupidly into battle no matter what, but over the years she had seen too many friends die that way and that had changed her somewhat.

She turned not wanting to watch the rest run off and she saw Wart slip into the sewers after his goblin friends, she waited a few moments and followed keeping far enough behind them that they wouldn't see her. She stopped when they did and listened as one goblin said something to Wart. She came out of the shadows and approached them. They turned, weapons drawn but Wart signalled that it was okay. "Wart you can't go in there alone, I'm coming with you" she anounced, and she wasn't going to take any arguments.

05/01/2001 12:38 AM

"Fine," says Wart in common so Katyr can understand. "I'm not much good with a sword but I can sneak about very well. Clod says we just have to turn left here, go down the passage, take a right and climb the ladder at the end. We should come up somewhere in the basement. After that, we're on our own.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Katyr
05/01/2001 6:03 AM

Katyr nods to what Wart tells her "Hopefully if we are stealthy enough we won't need to use swords" the two make their way through the sewers following Clod's directions, soon they come to a ladder leading up. Katyr shivered and she didn't think it was from the cold and damp of the sewers. "Uh..you first, I'll follow."

Tantric
05/01/2001 7:24 AM

Tantric fought with everything he had, but the group gained no ground. As one fell to his sword another immediately stepped into it's place.

Fighting his way towards Jorgan, he yelled, "Jorgan, this isn't quite working the way we had hoped." Stopping long enough to slice a lion-man's gut open, he continued, "I hope you've got a back up plan. We're not going to be able to hold them off much longer."

Finally making it to the large warrior, he placed himself at Jorgan's back so the two men would have full coverage. "I don't see anyone else around us," he said. "Unless you've got some trick up your sleeve, we can't take this gate alone."I'm your huckleberry.

TayJK
05/01/2001 7:55 AM

Taylor, seeing Tantric needed help, climbed up a near by abandoned building. When he gets to the top, he throws a rope down for Mirror.

"Come on Mirror, we can shoot them from here."

Taylor pulls out his other crossbow, so he had one in his hand, and one next to him. He shoot a lion man coming up behind Tantric, then shot one heading towards Insano.

"Yes I have a few tricks up my sleeves...."

Jorgan sheathes his longsword and reaches into a pouch. He draws out a small pouch and throws it to the ground.

"Hold your breath!"

A huge cloud of blackish green smoke suddenly errupts and Jorgan grabs Tantric and hauls him out of the cloud. The lion men fall writhing to the ground.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hauling Tantric out of the fight, he lets go after the smoke clears.

"It's a poison gas that a friend of mine gave me. Quite effective. The problem is, I only have one more."

Jorgan grins and pops his neck, stretching.

"Here comes another group from the north!"

Jorgan quickly unbuckles his sheath, and removes his top. He then straps his sword sheath back on across his back. Stretching again, he gives a quick smirk to Tantric.

"I'm faster this way. Trust me."

And then he is gone like a flash, his two sworded fighting technique cutting down lion-men like a hot knife through butter. Within moments he has killed all but one of the dozen guards fighting him, the last one running for his life. Jorgan, eyes full of battle lust, looks for more opponents.

Mirror climbs up the rope her little kender friend has offered her, and posistions herself in a fireing stance. She lets a barrage of arrows fly, one after the other, each one flying clear and true, hitting their targets precicely. Mirror lets out a large whoop of delight, watching the lion men moving towards Tantric and Jorgan fall as her and Tay let their arrows fly.
"Yeah, nothing like the adrenalin rush!!!!!!!" Mirror yells."Ha Ha

05/01/2001 11:39 AM

Taylor had an idea. He suddenly stopped firing, pulled out a piece of paper, and wrote on it this:

Insano,
Don't destroy parts of the building. You might destroy the scroll. Knock some hole in the wall. I will look in the ones I can see (OOC: We're on a 3 or 4 story building), and let you know if I see the scroll. If I do, launch someone, with the gnomeflinger, through the hole. They can get the scroll, find Wart, then get out.

From,
Taylor Magetaunter

Taylor tied the note to one of his arrow, then shoot it at the part of the gnomeflinger by the launch switch. He didn't hit Insano because he and Offhand were busy reloading. He then noticed some movement out of the corner of his eyes.

"Mirror, archers, on the wall!"

Taylor reloaded his crossbow, then shoot one of the 5 archers.Kender Proverb #1:

Wart climbed up the ladder and peeked through the grate at the top. "Looks clear," he says, pushing the grate open so he can crawl through. The goblin scurried to his feet, moving out of the way so Katyr could follow him up. "Where should we go now?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Insano
05/01/2001 6:54 PM

While re-loading the gnomeflinger, Insano notices the little note from Tay.

"OK, here goes"

Insano fires a barrage at the fortress wall, the boulder cracks the wall, but doesnt take it down.

"Hey guys, I dont think this one is going to work...the walls are to strong! However, Insano doesnt notice the pressure buidling up in the Gnomeflingers steam engine.

Suddenly, Insano notices "ITS TOO LATE LADS, I cant realease the pressure! Shes gonna blow!"

Insano quickly removes the wheel blockings, and the gnomeflinger heads for the fortress.

As the gnomeflinger collides with the wall, it explodes, leaving a gaping hole in the wall.

"OH NO! That was my last prototype....AH CONFOUND IT TO THE ABYSS!! Well, I suppose it worked..."

Suddenly, the Lion men begin to rush Insano..

Insano begins to flee down the street.True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

05/02/2001 12:04 AM

Mirror fired the last of her ammo and looked down at Tay. "I have a small dagger that I keep in my boot, and a short sword here, She reached into the scabbard on her left hip that no one had noticed before, and produced a fine sword of dwarven make. She looked at it fondly as she tested it's weight in her hand. "My old friend Flint made this for me when I was younger..."she smiled. lost for a moment in reminicence. She was then brought back to the present time when she heared the scream coming from Insano. She rushed rushed down from off the wall and over towards him. "I don't know about a ring of featherfalling, but the old man said that magic could work as long as it wasn't directed at the Queen or ny of her minions...." She stopped and began to chant. Suddenly a wall of invincibility sprung up around the gnome. All lion men attacking him fell back it a heap as they hit the shield. "Woo-hoo!!! It works!! C'mon Tay, lets go and kick some lion men butt!!!!!!!" She let out her battle cry as she charged forward, sword in hand, slicing down every lion man she came into contact with until she came upon Tantric and Jorgan, still back to back with each other. She formed part of their ring and continued to fight.
"So, boys, how are we all feeling today?" she asked, smiling.So hurry up, and bring your juke box money!!!!! :D

Katyr
05/02/2001 12:19 AM

(OOC: just remember that once we are inside the temple no magic works no matter who its targeted at)

Katyr looked around the huge basement they were standing in, there were boxes and crates of food and other miscellaneous items but nothing of real interest. Apart from the hole they had just climbed out of there were two other exits, one was a large wooden door directly opposite that led to stairs leading up and another smaller door that appeared to be locked, Katyr guessed this was probably some sort of liquor cellar.

"Well we have no real idea of where she keeps the scroll, my guess is she would keep it locked in some sort of treasure room and that it would more than likely have guards posted day and night. The question is where is the treasure room likely to be, deep under this basement or at the very top of this temple?"

05/02/2001 12:29 AM

Wart attempts to reason this out. "Wasn't the castle shaped like a spider? Do you think that has any connection to where we are supposed to go?" he asks. "I think it probably means up, since spiders climb," says the goblin, eyeing the stairs."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr
05/02/2001 12:46 AM

Katyr agrees "Wart i think you're on to something! the highest section of the temple appeared to be the head of the spider from outside, i bet thats the private chambers of the goddess and more than likely where she keeps the scroll."

The two headed out the large door and up the stone stairs, the top of the stairs led to a T intersection with a hallway going left and right. They crept up to the top stair and Katyr took out a small piece of mirror which she used to see up and down the hall. "All clear, and there appears to be stairs going up at the end of the left corridor." She waited for Warts decision.

Joe_Ghostbuster
05/02/2001 1:37 AM

A laugh can be heard,and Ghostbuster walks down the stairs Katyr and Wart are looking at."No,it isn't there.I think it would be in the spiders head.It fits with the guidelines in the Evil Godesses rulebook."
"And the stairs leading to it are..."the kender racks his head,then points to a blank wall."Here." The cleric walks toward the wall,and knocks a rapid sequence on it.Suddenly the wall fades away,revealing a staircase heading straight up."Just as P-,just as Pala-, just as the god predicted."
Ghostbuster starts walking up the stairs,taking them one by one with unusual un-skipping,with none of his regualr kender enthusiasm.
"Mr Darcy, I am undone... your britches are magnificent...
oh my....

05/02/2001 6:53 AM

Katyr stares angrily at Ghost "What the hell is going on here!? are you telling us that you've known all along where the scroll is and how to get it and you haven't even told us!" She grabs the Kender by his collar as he starts up the stairs "There are people out there fighting for this stupid scroll, people i care about very deeply." She looks at Wart, who she now counted as a trusted friend.

She calms down and looks back into the Kenders face "If this is some sort of joke and my friends have died because of it I swear to the gods you will not be laughing!"

Tantric
05/02/2001 8:52 AM

Tantric's skill with a sword has never been his greatest asset. While he is quite handy, it's always been his ability to think clearly in the face of danger that has kept him alive and after seeing the spell mirror cast on Insano he came up with another good idea.

"Guys I've got a plan, but you're going to have to hold these guys yourself for a few minutes," he said as he made a daring attempt to get through his attackers. After hacking his way through a few more lion men, he found Insano.

"Insano, I'm going to try something. Don't move," he yelled as ran toward the gnome. With a full head of steam, he barreled right into the invisible wall surrounding Insano and he was promptly knocked down. "Just as I thought. Insano, Mirror and Jorgan are over there. We've got to clear a path for them from there to the hole in the wall you made. You're going to be their shield," Tantric finished as an excited look crossed the gnome's face.

Mumbling something about studying the reliability of invisible magic shields, Insano ran off towards the two before Tantric was ready.I'm your huckleberry.

Mirror
05/02/2001 10:59 AM

Mirror slugs away with her sword. Not being the best sword fighter, she soon tires. The mixture of her depleting adrenalin and the spell she had just cast made her flag even more than she would normally. She becomes careless, and is soon covered in various wounds, the deepest one being a slash on her sword arm. She had to swap the sword over, and tried valliantly to continue.
"Where is Tantric and what is he doing? I can't keep on much longer!" she wheezed.So hurry up, and bring your juke box money!!!!! :D

Insano
05/02/2001 1:30 PM

Insano, after hearing the plans, begins to dash towards Jorgan, so that he can have a better swordsman at his side to rescue Mirror. Suddenly, out of the corner of his eye he catches Mirror take a nasty chop to her arm from the axe of a lionman, and the blood begins to pulse from the wound.

"Oh Gods!"

Insano quickly changes his direction and dashes towards Mirror, he quickly arrives at her side.

"Get behind me woman!" Cries Insano as he draws his wrench and throws it at the closest lion man, it connects with its head as it sinks to the ground.

"QUICKLY!! WE NEED A CLERIC, MIRROR HAS TAKEN A SERIOUS WOUND!!"

Insano quickly grabs Mirror, hauls her over his shoulder and begins to carry her away from the main source of battleing.

"Someone get over to Jorgan and help him out , I think my magical shield is disapearing!"

05/02/2001 1:30 PM

Ghostbuster looks at Katyr with an expression of hurt on his face,that only gets more prominent as the warriorwoman continues her tirade."I...I knew where the scroll was."he stammers. "In the spider head.But I didn't know how to get there. We were thinking of a plan when your friends started going mad.And they're...probably dying right now..." The kender begins to sob. "I didn't want to lead this quest! Fizban made me do it! And now they're gonna,they're gonna...die!Becuase of me!If we don't find the scroll soon,and then get out."
Ghostbuster wipes off his tears,and collects himself."Right.No time for whining,if we want the scroll." as if the sudden invasion of depression had never been,the cleric sets off,speaking to the heros behind him as he walks."I'd say you'd better unsheath your weapons. Where we're going,we're gonna need them." Listening to his own advice,Ghostbuster takes off a stud on top of his hoopak,revealing a spear like spike.He starts to twirl the hoopak,readyign for combat.
"Mr Darcy, I am undone... your britches are magnificent...

Mirror
05/02/2001 1:56 PM

Mirror starts to feel woosy. The wound is deeper than she thought, but she must caryy on-she can't let the others down! She continues to hack away with her sword until the world starts to spin and go black at the edges. Suddenly, she has the sensation of being carried along on the back of a very small donkey before blacking out completly.

Gaia hear's Insano's cry for a cleric and realises that Mirror has been hurt. She runs out towards her friends, heedless of the battle going on around her. She meets up with Insano, and as he turns Mirror over onto her back, Gaia realises that her old friend has lost a lot of blood in a very short time. Without thinking she lays her hands on the wound and prays with all her strength to Mishkail. The wound begins to knit together as light flashes from the junior clerics hands. She then falls back, able to do no more, her strength gone from her body. She looks at Mirror and see's that the wound has healed itself, but she is still unconcious and will be very weak for a day or so due to the lack of blood in her system. She needed rest! Gaia stands up and shouts to Insano "We need to get her somewhere safe. She has lost a lot of blood and needs her rest, especially since when we get inside my magic will be of no use anymore. What should we do?" she says, panic creeping into her voice.So hurry up, and bring your juke box money!!!!! :D

Tantric
05/02/2001 2:06 PM

Watching Insano tear through the lion men, Tantric sheaths his sword and pulls his mace.

"Father don't fail me now," he said to the weapon that been passed down in his family from father to son since before the Cataclysm.

Tantric made a mad rush to get to Jorgan's side. Smashing every enemy within his reach with the blessed power of the mace, he tore through the group of lion men until he finally reached Jorgan.

"Make for the hole created by the gnomeflinger," he said pointing with one hand while bashing another lion man with the other. "I'll cover your back for now, but once we get inside this mace is no better than any other weapon."

Together the two men followed Insano leaving a swath of destruction behind them. Reaching the hole, Tantric shoved everyone inside and yelled, "Insano, find a way to block those gates. Jorgan, help me block this hole. Taylor," looking around he couldn't find the kender. "Shit! We forgot Taylor!"

05/02/2001 2:14 PM

Taylor, after using up the last of his arrows, throws his crossbow at a lionman at the bottom of the building, knocking it unconsious. He jumps down, using it as a cushion. He also used his hoopak to stab it while he landed. He ran over to Mirror, Gaia and Insano. He looks around. "Where's Offhand? Doesn't matter much. Insano, I'll protect Mirror. Go and help Tantric do his plan."

Taylor reachs into one of his pouchs and grabs a ring, then puts it on Mirror. "Ring of Regeneration. Won't heal any old wounds, but will heal any more wounds she gets. Unless they use fire or acid, which they aren't."

He reachs into another pouch, and then puts two more rings on. "This one is another Ring of Regeneration. This one is a Ring of Shocking Grasp. Now go, help Tantric. Gaia, do you have any skills with weapons? You can stay here and help me protect Mirror."Kender Proverb #1:

Insano, seeing that Mirror is alright, and sees that the fighters that protected him are all re-united, Insano makes a mad dash for the hole in the wall. Along the way, he picks up a small axe off one of the lion men corpses.

Along the way Insano yells to his companions
"Come on guys! Dont worry about Taylor, he's a kender! He'll find a way to make it to us! But what do we do with Mirror, shes out cold! and Gaia isnt in fighting condition, I suppose we can always hope to meet up with the others on the inside. We could sure use Ghostbusters advice....."

Insano reaches the hole in the wall, and assumes a battle stance (or as close as he can get to one, assuming he has never wielded an axe before in battle)

05/02/2001 10:26 PM

Gaia looks from Tay to Mirror in shock, her head pounding in rhythm with her heart. Why oh why did she choose to travel here? She wasn't a fighter!!!! She was barely even a cleric! She needed to find a way in to the building so that Mirror would have a chance to rest. She looked down and saw the opening in the sewer. "Maybe we should try and get Mirror down into the castle through the sewer?" she said to Tay. Then she realised that there would be no way they would be able to find their bearings in the smelly catacombs that was the sewage system of Flotsam and gave a howl of despair. She felt for the lifebeat in Mirror's neck, and although it was weak, it was regular. Gaia gasped as Mirror opend her eyes.

Mirror tried to sit up, but found she couldn't. She had barely enough energy to speak. She looked around at Tay and Gaia, and realised that they had helped to save her life. There was no way she could let them down. "Both of you, hold on to my hands." she commanded, and with the last of her remaining strength, she cast a spell of levitation. She then proceeded to guide them over the top of the Lion men and through the hole, joining up with Insano, Tantric and Jorgan as they did so. Mirror heard the kender cheer in delight over being levitated AND being reunited with his friends, felt Gaia hold on to her in a thankful embrace. FInally, smiling to herself over helping her friends, she let go of the last burst of energy she had that was keeping her concious and decended into a world where everything is black.So hurry up, and bring your juke box money!!!!! :D

Katyr felt bad about the extent to which she went off at Ghost "I'm sorry little friend, i know its not your fault that the others all ran off into battle.

Jorgan crashes through more lion-men, severing body parts right and left. He is a blur, moveing like lightning among his enemies, but their heightened fighting senses balance out the fight. More seem to be streaming from the castle, like never-ending waves they rush on.

"People get in the hole!" Jorgan yells to the group.

Jorgan crashes into the hole, killing two guards coming from his left. Inside, the hole opened up directly into a large library, with three large tables and multiple chairs. Inside, guards were coming up the stairs into the room, and Jorgan blocked them off killing them, leaving the path up the stairs open. Jorgan ran back to one of the large tables, flipped it over, and began to push it towards the door. But the table was to large for Jorgan to push alone.

After seeing the others take off on the leviation spell, Insano dashes towards the hole in the wall, he enters a the library and sees Jorgan fighting lionmen. Afterwards, he hears Jorgans plee for help.

"Sorry Jorgan, I'm rather lacking in strength, I suppose we had better wait until the others arrive"

Coming back down the stairs into the library, Tantric ran over to assist Jorgan with the table.

"Sorry about that. One of the bastards ran off and I had to stop him before he could get help," he said as he got a grip on the table and readied himself to push. "One the count of three. One, two, three!"

The two men struggled with the weight of the table but finally got it to move. After a minute of pushing they managed to place in front of the hole.

Resting for a second against the table Tantric said, "What do we do now? Those lion guys will be after us in full force shortly."Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Wart constantly looked over his shoulder, making sure noone was following their small exploration party. He took of the stupid amulet that the red robe had given him and tossed it down the stairs. The amulet smelled horrible to the goblin. The chain clunked down the stairs and all the goblin could say to the others was "sorry.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Kista StarBlade Lept out of a nearby tree. She ran, crouching, to Jorgans' side. The Silvanesti elf, placed herself at Jorgans' back. Hesitating long enough to glance at Jorgan with her Lavender eyes, she tossed her long Silver-blonde hair behind her shoulder, and drew her sword. with her free hand she pulled something from around her neck.

"YOU!!! THERE!! Use this!!" Kista shouted and threw the necklace at Insano.

"Put it around her neck!! It will heal her!!!" Kista returned her attention to the beasts that circled them. Her eyes narrowe and she pulled out her dagger as well.

she Glanced backward at the man named Jorgan. "The name's Kista, Kista StarBlade, of the Kagonesti tribe Pathfinder. "

"Cover me...I will see what I can do..." she said as she knelt on the ground behind him.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

Katyr froze as she heard the loud echo of the amulet clanking down the stairs, it seemed to take forever to reach the bottom and she cringed as it hit each stair. She turned and frowned at Wart, she had thought he was smarter than to throw a large piece of metal down stone stairs. *Whats he playing at?* she thought to herself but then her thoughts were interupted by the sound of booted feet marching towards them. She pulled the others into a small alcove in the wall "What the heck do we do now?!"

Ghostbuster thinks fast.Then an idea comes to him,and he giggles."Stay here." he whispers to Katyr and Wart,"And be ready to ambush some lion heads! I'll make em so angry they'll forget how to smell!"
The kender runs off in the direction of sounds."Hey! Carrion breath!" he kindly greets the men."I've just come to see if its true that the lionesses do everything...well,seems its true,I don't se any males here!" with that, the little cleric runs off to the alcove,and stands just after it,tossing off taunt after taunt. The lion men run at him,too angry to think...
"Mr Darcy, I am undone... your britches are magnificent...
oh my....
dreadfully undone...."- khirsah,in a moment of surging hormones.

05/07/2001 3:21 AM

Katyr throws some caltrops onto the floor once ghost has run past then readies herself, sword and dagger in hand. "Wart if you have any ideas now would be a good time!" she whispers urgently to the Goblin.

The_Thorn
05/07/2001 11:38 AM

"Just one," whispers the goblin. Wart sifts through his sacks finding one in particular. "Toss this at their heads when they come buy.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

"so, was everybody just gonna leave me or what?" She asked, her lavender eyes shadowed by her platinum-blonde hairyour village just called, their Idiot is missing

Taylor, who is now the only one still guarding Mirror from the two or three lionguards still trying to get to her. He pull a ring out of his pouch, grabs hold of one of Mirror arms, then disappears. He reappears inside Insano's Workshop. Taylor looks at the mostly unconcious Mirror.

"We should be safe here for awhile. Hey look, a gnomish lock.

Taylor closes the door, then locks the lock. He then puts the necklace Insano handed him, that the wild elf (OOC: Sorry, forgot you name or how to spell your type of elf) gave him, around Mirror's neck.

"Hopefully this will work. Maybe this will help." He takes out a cone of whispering wind and says into it, in goblin, (OOC: You'll all be able to hear it, but the lionmen wouldn't understand) "Hey guys, I need some help here. I got about 6 lionmen trying to get to Mirror and me, and I don't think I can stop them. I'm in Insano's workshop. Oh, and Insano, you've got some interesting stuff here."Kender Proverb #1:

Jorgan presses his back against the table, holding it against the lion-men on the other side.

"You guys, I need a little help! Find something to brace this table! Quick! They're coming thru!"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"It's blinding powder. I crushed it myself. It should give us an edge," says Wart."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr
05/09/2001 7:08 AM

Katyr nods then braces herself for the lion men who are coming closer.
The first lot (about four) tread hard onto the sharpened caltrops and fall to their knees. She attacks from the alcove and cuts the first lot down using the swordmaster techniques she had learnt from her teacher Pyranthas. She throws the powder at the second lot of lionmen and it sprays all over their faces. They scream and claw at their eyes as the powder burns through the soft tissue. They stumble about slashing wildly with their weapons but the two are able to defend themselves while dealing lethal blows with their swords. "Where's Ghost, can you see him?" Katyr yells to Wart as they stand side by side fighting, she realised that she couldn't hear his high pitched voice or see him anymore.

Jorgan, still holding the table against the door, wipes the sweat off of his forehead. The table is suddenly hit with a tremendous force, and part of the wood begins to split.

"Oh shit, here they come!"

Jorgan jumps away from the table as it crashes to the floor upside-down. Thru the hole come twelve more lion-men, filling into the room. Drawing his swords, Jorgan bares his teeth. Pointing his finger at the lead lion-man, he issues his trademarkā„¢ challenge. Scraping a line in the floor, he points his other sword at the lion-men.

"You want some?"

The lion men begin to move forward towards him. Taking the innitative, Jorgan charges towards them.

"THAN COME GET SOME!!!"

OOC:Who is in the room with Jorgan? Just Tantric and the Kaganosti elf?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

05/09/2001 9:02 AM

OOC: I think it's Jorgan, Tantric, Insano, Gaia, and Kista(the new Kagonesti)

Tantric is pushed away from the table when the lion men slammed into it. Watching the table fall and Jorgan make his challenge, the young warrior shook his head and drew his sword.

"No rest for the weary I guess," he said as he rushed in after Jorgan.Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Mirror
05/09/2001 10:29 AM

Mirror rises up suddenly, so suddenly that she begins to feel dizzy from the wound and loss of blood that she has just sustained. She looks over at Tay, and then around at the room they were now in-Insano's workshop.
"Why are we here!!?!!" The Kagonesti yells at her little Kender friend. She looks down at her wound, tears off a piece of her tunic and wraps it around it, in an attempt to staunch any further blood flow. She then stands up, rather shakilly to begin with, and looks around the workshop. She spies some arrows in a corner and grabs them, knowing that the little gnome would understand. She then notices the amulet hung from around her neck. "I know this amulet...." she muses to herself. Before she has time to think about it, however, she senses that the others are in great danger. "Get us back to the others!" she cries at Tay, and eventually manages to pursuade him to take them back, despite his concern.
They reapear in the midst of the melee. She quickly looks around, see's Gaia huddeld in a corner out of the way in order to try and protect herself, she see's Tantric and Jorgan fighting the Lion men, their strength ebbing away with each stroke. She suddenly notices the new Kagonesti. "Cousin.......?" she says out loud. The elf turns and recognition dawns on her finely carved features. But before the two can catch up, they need to sort out the Lion men!
Mirror draws her sword again, and muttering a prayer to E'li rushes forward, cutting down lion men at every turn. She reaches Tantrics side and grins. "Miss me?" she gasps in between lunges.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Kista looked around and stared at the Lion-men....Her Lavender eyes narrowed dangerously. With one smooth motion, she drew her sword and pulled her dagger free from her boot.

"Come on you mangy curs...I'm ready for you." she growled, shifting her wieght from foot to footYour Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

(OOC: Mirror, No magic, remember? Let's say the hole weakened the anti-teleport magic)

Taylor went up to the door, and put some glue from Insano's workshop between the frame and the door. Then he stuck a wedge there.

"That should hold them for awhile. Calm down, I have everything under control."

Taylor takes out a dagger, breaks a small hole through the door. Then he takes out a small tube with a short sting attached. He light the sting, then pushs the tube through.

"Jordon, down!!"

Taylor dives off the table, knocking Jordon down. Suddenly, there's a bang on the other side of the door and the top half of the door, the part not barracated by the table, flies over Jordon and Taylor and knocks Tantric over. "Smokepowder," Taylor mutters. "Got it in Insano's workshop. Lots of interesting things there. It probabaly took out those lionmen, but there's more where they come from. So do we stay here, or go find the scroll?"Kender Proverb #1:

05/09/2001 6:28 PM

Insano sees Tay and the crew materialse out of no where.

"NEAT!!! Hey, where did you guys come from? Do you like this axe I picked up? Hey, is that my glue and smoke powder? Why Tay, what were you doing in my workshop?"

Insano works into a hough and puff, about how gnomish things should never be tampered with.

True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

Wart works his way up the stairs, making sure Katyr is with him. His dagger punched here and there but the goblin never knew if he caused any mortal wounds. "I'm not sure where the kender went. Can never keep track of them anyway," says the goblin."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Katyr
05/09/2001 10:11 PM

With the last of the lionmen lying dead on the floor Katyr follows as Wart leads up the stairs "We'll have to keep moving quickly, as soon as we find the scroll we can get back to the others then get the hell out of Flotsam, the only problem is i think we're going to need the Kenders blessed help!." the two ran up the stairs which seemed to be leading straight up to a tower room with a huge ornate door. "Do you think this is it?" she asked Wart although it was pretty obvious since the door was decorated with a huge spider emblem.

Mirror
05/09/2001 11:06 PM

Mirror looked around at the others, and as she went over to get Gaia to her feet she said, "I don't think we should stay here. We'll be sitting targets! We need to get to that scroll and find Katyr Wart and Ghostbuster. I suggest we move up and out of this place, head towards the top of the tower. Evil queens always keep their important things at the top!!!!" she grinned at her logic.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

"No," Says Jorgan, rising from the ground. "We stay here. If we go up or move, there's a good chance of either getting seperated, ambushed, or lost altogether. Ghostbuster knows we are here (I hope) and will come back this way. We need to stay here, safe and sound. A smart man knows when to attack and when to hold his ground. We need to hold our ground. We all certainly need the rest."

Jorgan sits back down across the room against the wall. The blood has drained from his face and he is breathing heavily. Jorgan closes his eyes and falls asleep. After a time, a pool of blood begins to seep ot from underneath him, and he slumps over to his side, unconscious. (The back of his thigh has a terribly deep cut in it, almost a foot long.)

OOC:All the speed and strength still didn't keep him perfect, but he did kill a hell of a lot more than Tantric ;)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mirror
05/10/2001 9:52 AM

Mirror see's the pool of blood begining to form underneath Jorgan's body. She quickly take action. Knowing that any healing skills her or the rest of the party may posses would be useless in here, she turns him over on to his side, and ripping another piece of cloth from her slowly dinishing tunic, she covers the wound in order to try and staunch the bleeding as well as to prevent any infection. She then covers him with an old blanket that she found before turning to the others. "We have no choice now, we must stay here until Jorgan regains conciousness." She brushes the hair from his face and utters a silent prayer tyo E'li.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Tantric
05/10/2001 11:06 AM

"Damn you Taylor! Be more careful with stuff next time," Tantric yelled as he picked himself up off the floor.

"Jorgan's right. We need to stay here. Hopefully Ghostbuster and the others have found what they're looking for and they're heading back this way," he said while looking around at his comrades.

Watching Jorgan fall, he thought, "We're not going to last much longer. With the exception of the new Kagonesti, we're all dead tired. If they make a decent charge at us, they'll cut us to shreds. Hurry up, Ghostbuster."

Speaking to the group again, Tantric said, "For the time being at least, we're going to wait here. Everyone rest now while you can. If Ghostbuster doesn't come back soon, we've got to find a way out of here."

OOC: Jorgan may have killed more but Tantric looked better doing it. 8)Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Wart inspects the handle of the door. "Hold on a second," says the goblin. After several moments he holds up a small needle. "Good poison, this is a keeper." Wart pushes the door open a crack and looks in. "I don't see anything, so you can go in first.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
