[Master] Spring will be in so I want to have an NPC for her to play on the boat as well

[Master] creating that now

[Mike] is the boat the plan for the night?

[Master] yes

[Master] trying to get things caught up that way

[Master] there are a few encounters to get through

[Master] then once the boat is close to docking

[Master] we will be abel to jump back to the City

[Master] run the interviening days

[Master] and get everyone cuaght up to the correct time line

[Master] which I hope will be prior to the Mourning of Megrim night

[Master] and I am certain that everyone wants that to happen before I go on vacation next month

[Master] sending Mike a new map to test loading speeds

[Master] and now to Lisa

[Master] there you go

[Master] not a long boat per se

[Master] but better than a burned out lighthouse as a map for the boat

[Master] Isla Falcon moved 40'05".

[Master] Hugh D'Ambray moved 36'07".

[Master] Indigo moved 51'07".

[Master] Branwyn XP award: 500. Next level in 66343.

[Lisa] seriously?

[Master] seriously what?

[Lisa] we are going to run the boat constantly until to the city and then we are going to have to slam through an entire week of city stuff that is on our calendars?

[Lisa] that seriously

[Master] it depends on who is in at which point

[Master] I am very happy to switch back and forth

[Master] just as we have been

[Mike] and megrim is all planned?

[Lisa] I believe so

[Lisa] Imari and Kenna have been the only ones to use the invitations but I'm not going to try to fight that any more

[Lisa] I am happy for what I have :)

[Master] chuckles

[Master] so moving forward

[Mike] well let's do some of that, then

[Mike] seance for the former ambassador?

[Lisa] yes

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 30'07".

[Master] Atribella Olivin moved 24'09".

[Master] Joseph Shortkin moved 28'07".

[Master] Useless moved 17'01".

[Lisa] we have to pack up and head over to her burnt out place

[Master] Johan the Apprentice moved 18'08".

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] Branwyn

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I have brought your two apprentices in

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and the staff of Misstress Waverlyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] They don't have to come everywhere

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Useless can carry the box of candles

Useless (Master) opens mouth Ahhh then shakes head and holds out a hand

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Is there a problem?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you not wish to carry a box of candles?

[Useless (Master)] I can do that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If you actually become useful, you might just have to tell me your real name

Useless (Master) nods

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] Did you want me to create a distraction tonight?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Johan, if you would rather rest, you do not have to go on this jaunt

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do we need one?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] to leave a space for your ceremony without any guards happening by

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] I go where you go

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No you don't Johan. But it is a nice thought.

[Mike] I am back at the keyboard.

[Imari (Mike)] "Why would the guards be a problem?"

[Imari (Mike)] "It is a burt out building, do they guard that, too?"

Johan the Apprentice (Master) looks back and forth between Imari and Phillipe and then at Branwyn, opens his mouth, then shuts it

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] It is not a burnt out building

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] it is a construction site

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] all the remains of the previous building have been moved

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] there is a new building going up there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The moved the remains of the old building?

[Imari (Mike)] "Well, then stop the guards."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And Johan unless you are catching flies, speak when you have a mind to.

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] I was going to offer that we are going to be breaking into a place, do you not have any contacts with the thieves guild? or one of your companions?

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs "No, our roguish companion is quite shy it seems and is having trouble making friends."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It would seem that with all the guards that we have been using around our place that one of them should know us and be able to do us a favor.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It should only be for an hour.

[Imari (Mike)] "If it is a construction site how much breaking in do we have to do?

[Imari (Mike)] "Let's have your wonderful apprentices answer any questions guards might have while we're conducting the seance."

[Imari (Mike)] "Instruct them to ask the Prince if there's a problem."

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I think that Imari has an excellent idea actually

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] we could take one of our own guards with us

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and it would look like the normal city guard duty

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Excellent idea.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Then let us be off.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I will need 30 minutes to prepare and so you can get the guard in place while I get ready.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] Yes Branwyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Imari, can you cast a blessing right before we begin? That would help my meager talent.

[Imari (Mike)] "Yes, Bran."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If I am successful, then I am counting on Phillipe, Joseph or Atribella to tell us if the spirit is indeed the ambasaador and save us a question.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you Imari. I truly hope this works.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] are we ready ?

[Imari (Mike)] i suppose so. i bless, she calls, and we get the person

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes

[Imari (Mike)] lisa, you have your questions ready to go?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] then I will lead you there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I was going to ask who stabbed her and set her on fire to start

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 153'04".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 164'04".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If she answers that then I can ask her about the poison perhaps

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Did you have ideas?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DLC-DiplomaticQuarter

[Imari (Mike)] "Who killed her would be nice."

[Imari (Mike)] "Then we can kill them and leave, right?"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hope so

[Master] Joseph Shortkin moved 221'09".

[Master] Branwyn moved 209'08".

[Master] Useless moved 202'00".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That was the whole stab and set on fire thing. I don't know if she will know who poisoned her and the priest said that was the actual cause of death

[Master] Johan the Apprentice moved 201'02".

[Master] Imari moved 183'08".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] before the buring I guess

[Imari (Mike)] ::sighs:: "Perhaps there were three people who all wanted to kill her on the same ngiht."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We really do need to send someone to the Grand Celestry and question whomever did that divination on her remains.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] speaking softly as he reachign the intersection, I am afraid there were likely more than three

Branwyn (Lisa) nods

[Imari (Mike)] "Can we just tell the queen the murder was justified? It sounds like it was."

Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master) nods across the bridge, our old residence was across the river here

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] do you want to go to the former front of the residence? or to the rear?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I have written to that effect, but she still was the Drillian representative. I am not sure that will matter to her.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Which is the easiest way in?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] the resdidence is in the center there, points to the group of buildings across the river and streets

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] over on envoy lane

[Imari (Mike)] "Then let's go."

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 45'04".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 78'01".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 169'04".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 218'07".

[Master] Branwyn moved 190'10".

[Master] Imari moved 202'00".

[Master] Useless moved 174'08".

[Master] Johan the Apprentice moved 176'07".

[Master] Joseph Shortkin moved 174'11".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 4'03".

Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master) points to the new construction on the end

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That will be a nice house. Who bought it?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I am not certain

[Branwyn (Lisa)] All right. I shall prepare.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] it is through at least one other person

Branwyn (Lisa) goes in and draws a chalk circle on the ground and sits down to concentrate on the summoning

[Branwyn (Lisa)] OHM

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 62'06".

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] are we doing this here/

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] OH'

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] runs to catch up

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 59'11".

[Master] Useless moved 49'03".

[Master] Joseph Shortkin moved 52'04".

[Master] Johan the Apprentice moved 57'01".

[Master] Imari moved 66'06".

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] that would be Imari's cue to cast anything to help

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] bless

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and or

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (she is supposed to meditate for 30 minutes so I was moving that part along :) )

[Imari (Mike)] cast bless i guess

[Imari (Mike)] but not for another 30 minutes

[Imari (Mike)] pray to partik to bring us the right spirit

[Master] the two of you decide the timeline and what happens when

[Master] then we make the roll

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (useless can light some candles, guard get in position etc)

Michael has joined the game on Fri Jul 03 19:58:40 EDT 2015

Michael is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (tell us when the time is up and we will roll)

Michael has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Hi Michael)

[Michael] Hi guys sorry I am late

[Michael] Internet trouble

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (when branwyn's head comes up Imari can cast and then I will roll)

[Michael] I will be back shortly. Restroom AFK

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (glad you got it fixed!)

[Imari (Mike)] battlefate will give you a +3 to it

[Imari (Mike)] so maybe that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that would be lovely)

[Imari (Mike)] no, gotta be in battle

[Imari (Mike)] man, the short descriptions attached to the spells are crap

[Imari (Mike)] so just give you your plus 1/5% with bless

[Imari (Mike)] and let's go ahead and make that roll i guess

[Master] Mike if you go to your spell list on the spell page

[Master] click on edit

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (okay - every bit helps)

[Master] then when you click on a spell you can see the full description

[Master] with the i button

[Master] entire Players Handbook is entered that way

[Imari (Mike)] yeah, i just prefer not to read a full spell description

[Imari (Mike)] for every spell i have when i'm looking for something

[Imari (Mike)] so the batllefate short desc just says give bonus, not has to be in battle

[Imari (Mike)] i really hope the interface on the new system is better. klooge is so clunky.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (hopefully we will be able to enter spells as we like them for tabletop)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (are we actually going to wait 30 real live minutes?)

[Master] LOL

[Master] was checking the battlefate in full description

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sorry)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (need a patience nwp)

[Master] HAH

[Master] and no it will not work in this situation

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Too bad you can send that call upon faith in my direction - but that is a nice spell)

[Imari (Mike)] i can if you become one of the flock

[Master] not editing anymore you can go look at details

[Imari (Mike)] pun intended

[Branwyn (Lisa)] lol

[Master] grins

[Master] nice

[Michael] Alright I'm back. Any one care to give a quick summary?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no - we are just about to tru the seance is all)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (try)

[Michael] alrighty. I'll observe

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (as soon as Bob says it's been 30 minutes)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I think that was an hour ago)

[Michael] like real life 30 min?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that was my question)

[Michael] that's like 30 seconds of game time progress though

[Michael] or it seems like

[Master] I am ready when you are Lisa, was giving you and Mike time to finalize spells

[Master] cast away both of you as you wish

Branwyn (Lisa) throws her head back

[Imari (Mike)] bless

[Michael] Don't die lisa. and don't kill any poor unsuspecting apprentices

[Imari (Mike)] blessblessbless

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'm ready

[Michael] This should be good!

[Michael] Let me pop some popcorn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: Spirit Lore check: (d20) [1d20=1] 1 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 6!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yay!!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Roll #1: (d3) [1d3=1] 1

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that sucks)

[Master] I will let you three debate what is best to ask

[Master] then tell me your official question

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (who stabbed you? best one that she could answer most likely)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (is it her?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (is the ambassador here?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (where is the drama? did atribella faint?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Or phillipe?)

[Master] Now that you ask and look around Atribella did not come with you

[Imari (Mike)] fire her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: Observation check: (d20) [1d20=6] 6 [MODIFIED (+1)] - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 18!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (do I see a ghost? are my staff confirming as I asked?)

[Master] yes to a ghost

[Master] Phillipe shakes his head

[Master] Jospeh nods his head

[Master] The ghost looks to be burned

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (should I ask who stabbed her or just who killed her? - don't want to hear I don't know but maybe cannot be avoided)

[Master] twisted

[Master] it is apparent that the two of them cannot agree if this is the ambassador or not

Branwyn (Lisa) sighs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (mike?)

[Michael] no me right?

[Imari (Mike)] i guess who stabbed her

[Imari (Mike)] then next week/month who poisoned ehr

[Imari (Mike)] and then who burned her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I'll just ask - we're coming back to this no matter what)

[Master] MIchael cna help

[Master] as a Player

[Master] Hugh is not there

[Master] LIsa is asking for assistance in what Branwyn should ask

[Michael] I have no opinion whatsoever. This is a seance. Well beyond me

Branwyn (Lisa) speaks up "Ambassador Waverlyn, I am Branwyn from Drillian come to avenge your death. Who stabbed you?"

Spirit (Master) I was stabbed by Joseph Shortkin

[Branwyn (Lisa)] AHA!

[Michael] Mike Lisa needs you!

[Michael] Tackle that guy

[Mike] test

[Michael] pass

[Mike] well that wasn't fun

[Michael] now tackle!!!!

[Lisa] no it wasn't

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (ready?)

[Michael] at least you could get back on though. So that's good

[Mike] I am back at the keyboard.

[Imari (Mike)] okay, so do we know who this joseph guy is?

[Michael] hes standing right next to you

Branwyn (Lisa) points at Joseph "Imari! Hold him!"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I can only blast him)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] :)

[Imari (Mike)] bob, does he have stats?

[Master] grins

[Imari (Mike)] as in, saves for spells?

[Master] and I have stats

[Master] go for it

Mike is receiving the map DryadsLair_Diplomatic Quarter...

Mike has received the map DryadsLair_Diplomatic Quarter.

[Mike] Imari targets Joseph Shortkin. Distance: 2'07"

[Mike] Imari targets Phillipe Gaston Enquire. Distance: 8'06"

[Imari (Mike)] Imari casts a spell against Joseph Shortkin: Hold Person - Priest: Up to 4 target humanoids are held immobile for (7*2) 14 rounds unless they make a save vs spell.

[Mike] Imari no longer targets Phillipe Gaston Enquire.

[Master] Joseph Shortkin: Magical Spell save: (d20) [1d20=20] 20 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 19!!

[Imari (Mike)] oh come on

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (his save is a 20?)

[Master] heh, sorry

[Imari (Mike)] sigh, if he runs before i can cast again i'll change and fly after him

[Master] that added his bonus to his roll rather than to his stat

[Imari (Mike)] let me know if i can cast again

[Master] but yes a 20 would save

[Michael] wow

[Master] and no he does not run

[Imari (Mike)] Imari casts a spell against Joseph Shortkin: Hold Person - Priest: Up to 4 target humanoids are held immobile for (7*2) 14 rounds unless they make a save vs spell.

[Imari (Mike)] can't happen twice in a row, right?

[Master] this time he fails intentionally, just stands there and takes the spell

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps we should go back to the residence. Joseph, the guard will take you so we may speak. I do not wish to do this here.

[Imari (Mike)] "Tie him up."

[Imari (Mike)] "Odd that you did not even try to escape."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Useless, please box up my supplies.

[Master] he cannot move

[Imari (Mike)] "But so much the better for us."

[Master] Joseph that is

[Imari (Mike)] so who is this guy?

[Imari (Mike)] is he our guard?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I didn't bring a rope. Who brings a rope to a seance?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps the guard can help us.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Phillipe, please tell me you did not know about this?

[Imari (Mike)] if nothing else i'll tie his wrists behind him with my belt

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I do not belive it at all

[Imari (Mike)] figure eight and all so he can't just slip out

[Branwyn (Lisa)] GUARD!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe he has some shackles.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I just didn't want him running away and setting fire to our house

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Useless

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] this is why you need to be prepared

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] if you are going to cast Hold Person you need to be ready to transport said person

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Your Master is showing you valuable lessons on purpose

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] learn from these pretend mistakes

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs again

[Imari (Mike)] ::sighs at this rediculousnous::

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Sometimes things happen that you cannot predict and then you must simply improvise. There is a lesson in that as well.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Where is the guard?

[Imari (Mike)] ::ueses her belt:: "Let's go Uselesses."

[Master] he is there

[Master] he is one of yoru guards

[Master] he does not have shackles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you have rope? How do you detain prisoners?

[Master] but he and Useless can lift and carry Joseph for you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] What kind of guard are you exactly?

[Michael] WOW Lisa! That was mean

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (he is a guard we pay for - I am only asking questions)

[Imari (Mike)] "Now we have three uselesses. Wonderful."

[Michael] At least we know why the previous ambassador died. The gaurds suck

[Imari (Mike)] "I've tied his wrists. Let's go."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (if he has no shackles or ropes I would like to know how he detains prisoners)

[Master] the guards simply walk around the premesis with a whistle to call others if needed

[Imari (Mike)] "Never send a city idiot to do a barbarian's work."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thanks Imari.

[Imari (Mike)] so he's about as useful as a brittish police?

[Michael] Lol

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will have to rethink this whole guard proposition

[Michael] Ouch

[Michael] AFK

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Let's go home

[Master] that is how you set it up when you moved in

[Master] and you can all get back to the residence with little problem

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (getting a drink - brb)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (doesn't mean we can't rethink it)

[Master] becuase you brought so many people you can carry everytrhing back along with the body

[Michael] Back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] me too

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I think this is the best room in the house to keep him in

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] no one else wil come in here

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and it is away from the others as well

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] for your questioning

[Master] Joseph Shortkin moved 9'10".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So Phillipe, you knew nothing of this?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I did not ever think that Joseph killed the Misstress

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I do not believe it now

Branwyn (Lisa) sighs

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I do not believe that was her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you have knowledge that Joseph stabbed your mistress?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] none at all

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] (joseph is tied and gagged at this point so when the hold wears off he is still under control)

[Michael] you gagged him?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] (Useless and the guard did)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] we can take the gag off. We shall want to hear him.

[Master] Useless moved 31'06".

Useless (Master) unties the gag

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Phillipe, can you get Jennevive please? We may need her divination skills.

[Master] Useless moved 9'00".

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] You do not need her

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I swear to tell the truth on pain of death

[Michael] That can be arragned

Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master) looks at Branwyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She can verify that.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I do not know where she is but I can find her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Please do.

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 36'09".

[Master] Phillipe Gaston Enquire moved 76'08".

[Imari (Mike)] back

[Master] so the four of you are there with the bound Joseph

[Imari (Mike)] let's lock him in with artiark

[Imari (Mike)] and after artiark eats one of his limbs we'll question him

[Imari (Mike)] because when someone lets an animal eat on you BEFORE the questions are asked, you know you want to be honest with them

[Master] How long do you want to wait for Phillipe?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We can get started and Jenneivive can cast later.

[Imari (Mike)] for the questioning, i have zone of truth

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So Phillipe says he does not know that was the late Ambassador but you nodded and she certainly didn't correct me as to my identification of her. Was that Ambassador Waverlyn?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sounds like a good idea mike)

[Master] size Mike?

[Master] brb real quick run downstairs

[Imari (Mike)] 35ft

[Master] b

[Master] 35 per side?

[Imari (Mike)] i would assume

[Imari (Mike)] 35 foot square

[Imari (Mike)] not 35 square feet

Spring has joined the game on Fri Jul 03 20:55:26 EDT 2015

Spring is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

[Michael] Hello

Spring has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Master] there you go

[Master] welcome SPring

[Master] finishing up a seance

[Spring] Hi hi hi!

[Master] Kenna can be here

[Master] Phillipe would have sent her down when he was searching for JEnnevive

[Spring] well alright :-)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (hi spring! :) )

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hiyo!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we found out joseph - on our staff stabbed the ambassador)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] whoa

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (one murder attempt down - 2 to go)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] dun dun DUN!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (silly mood)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no we get to ask him questions)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 9'01".

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (and i see we are equipped for it)

[Imari (Mike)] now this only goes on for seven rounds

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so can joseph verify we were speaking with Wavelyn? don't want to type that out again)

[Imari (Mike)] so tell me when to cast it and ask the important questions quick

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (7 rounds, 7 questions?)

[Master] I think you should type it again now Lisa, so that you can keep track of exactly what he says under the Zone of Truth

[Master] and I will say 9 questions for you

[Master] based on your level

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Were we speaking with the spirit of Ambassador Waverlyn?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] No

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] That was the girl I killed

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] she was there to kill the ambassador I think

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I did not want to take a chance

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So your nod in the house was a lie. Lovely. Who was the burned up girl did you stab?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I do not know I shoved her under the bed when I killed her, just before the ambassador came in from using the chamber pot

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Was this on the same day the Ambasador was killed?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I did not mean to lie, I was just nodding that I recognized her

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] it was the same morning, only ten minutes or so before the fire

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You knew what I asked of you! Never mind. I will deal with that later.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You said you came in and the ambassador had been stabbed and then the house was put ablaze. How coukd this be that the Ambassador walked out from her chamber pot, you were there and then 10 minutes later the house caught on fire?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] When was she stabbed in all of this?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] When I ran back into her room she had a dagger in her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The lies from you have been overwhelming.

Joseph Shortkin (Master) freezes

Joseph Shortkin (Master) mouth drops open

Joseph Shortkin (Master) falls to his knees

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I did it he whispers

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] it was because of me

[Michael] can we kill him now>?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] the girl

[Michael] thats a pretty good confession

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] she was not dead

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I thought I killed her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Apparently not

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I left the dagger there

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] oh

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Oh

Joseph Shortkin (Master) panting

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] oh Gods

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] oh Gods

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Imari "Any questions?"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] deep breath

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] can you talk to her again:?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] PLEASE

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] can you get to her again!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So you did not recognze this woman you stabbed? Was she a mage? A priest? A thief?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I do not know

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so he is saying he left someone under the bed full of dagger and then the dagger wound up in the abmassador ...

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh I intend to.

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I was nodding that I knew her, I did not mean that I KNEW her,

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I suppose so Kenna.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is all this hiding and deceit that causes all these problems.

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I swear by all the Gods that I did not kill Misstres Waverlyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why on earth would you kill a would be assassin, kick her body under the bed and make no mention to your mistress and allow her to climb into her bed right above a corpse?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I swear that I did not intend for her to die

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This might have been avoided if you had not been deceitful!

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I did not know what to do,

[Imari (Mike)] "You wasted our seance. If you told us who that was we could have asked her why she was trying to kill the ambassador."

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I had a dead girl

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I hid her

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] then ten minutes later the house is on fire

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] the ambassador has been stabbed

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] it was not a time for quiet reflecttion

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Directly below the Ambassador! Do you not see your foolishness?

[Imari (Mike)] "It was probably a team and you only killed one of them. The other or others finished the job."

[Imari (Mike)] "And we could have found out who they were if you weren't such a lying sack of manuer."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And you knew! You knew that my main assignment was to find out who killed Mistress Waverlyn. Why would you not tell me?

[Imari (Mike)] "But you told Branwyn it was the Ambassador and we asked her the wrong question because of that."

[Imari (Mike)] "I say we lock this bastard up for the rest of our stay."

[Imari (Mike)] "He clearly cannot be trusted."

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I will do what ever Branwyn wishes

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] she has proven herself to be worthy

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why did you not tell me of this before?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] she has proven that people should follow her

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] swallows

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] please understand

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] you came here as a monied friend of the Queen, of a land that I do not belong to

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] you had no credentials

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] no reason for anyone to believe that you could do anything more than host a fancy dinner party

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Phillipe was right,

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] he said you were as gifted as the Misstress

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] (now the zone disapears)

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I will do what Branwyn tells me to do

[Imari (Mike)] ::squints at him and casts again::

Branwyn (Lisa) sighs and leans back against the wall

[Imari (Mike)] "You will do everything that Branwyn tells you to?"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do not think he has much more to hide.

[Imari (Mike)] ::holds up a hand:: "Repeat what you last said, quickly."

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] which?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Oh

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Yes

[Imari (Mike)] "Will you do everything Branwyn tells you to?"

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I will do everything that Branwyn tells me to do

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I am loyal to her

[Imari (Mike)] "Will you betray her in any way?"

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I was loyal to the Misstress

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I am loyal to Branwyn

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I am not loyal to the crown

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I am loyal to Branwyn

[Imari (Mike)] "There you have it. I wanted that last part to be sure."

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I have learned this

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Frankly I do not know what to do with you, Joseph.

[Imari (Mike)] "The crown? Why do you bring that up? Do you think the Prince had something to do with it?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Drillian

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I have never been there

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] but if Branwyn leaves, I wish to go with her

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I pledge myself to her

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Is Is there anything about Mistress Waverlyn that you are still hiding from us?

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I will risk the Mist

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I am not hiding anything from you

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] but I am certain that there are things that I have not told you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Any more.

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] not becuase I am hiding them

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] but because there is no way to speak of years of service in only weeks

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I meant hiding any more knowledge of the circumstances of her death or about her assassins?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sorry I was not clear.

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] I do not think so

[Joseph Shortkin (Master)] Phillipe does not know of the girl

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why did Atribella not come with us tonight?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] Know of what girl?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and Attribella is away with Jennevive apparently

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The gods only know what they are planning. I shudder to think of it.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] apparently it was a visit to a shrine

[Branwyn (Lisa)] All right. I was thinking Jennevive was going to ready some plan for the party coming up.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so, a mystery girl

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So again, you had a teleportaion ward on the house and this girl got in.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There was but one entrance to the house.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] The wards would not prevent someone from walking in

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and what girl are we talking about?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But you had one entrance and a guard at the door

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] phillipe, have you not heard this testimony just now?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] yes

[Imari (Mike)] "The windows."

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] no

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I was searcing for Jennvive

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So she walked past the guard, the ward was not actually in effect or she was agile enough to scale the wall and climb in the window

[Imari (Mike)] "I would guess this was a hired assassin."

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] my apologies

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] One thing that I am coming to realize

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] perhaps the wards were not in place the day the Misstress died

Branwyn (Lisa) raises her eyebrows "Really? You have been talking about this famous ward. What happened to it?"

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I do not know

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] but you keep insisting that it would be too hard to get through

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and I believe that also

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] so if someone did get through

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] then

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I am at a loss

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I have learned that there were powerful forces that were operating around Misstres Waverlyn

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] and that I did not do enough to talk to her about them

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am not insisting. This ward was supposed to be the magical protection. If I held them in such value I would place one on our home. Clearly I do not.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I should have questioned her more

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Phillipe, you said she was secretive. Your questions may not have brought you answers.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We shall have to work with what we know now.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Next week we go back and ask this girl who hired her and her name.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And who knows? Perhaps we shall get Mistress Waverlyn herself next week. I cannot control who comes when I call.

Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master) looks at Joseph

Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master) looks at Branwyn

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] what do we do about him?

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] if he stabbed the Misstress

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No he did not. I shall explain later to you in the library.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Let us sleep on it and we shall talk in the morning.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] nods

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I shall wake Jilly to make a larger breakfast

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] do you think that Indigo will return tomorrwo?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I have no idea. He left on the second and had 350 miles to go? I would think it would take him at least a week to get back.

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] then I will only prepare one breakfast

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] glances over at Kenna

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) blinks

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] no one else is having breakfast?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] that is terrible for your health

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] T\hat is not what I

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] well

[Phillipe Gaston Enquire (Master)] I will see you in the morning at Breakfast (he emphasises) Misstress Kenna

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] thank you!

[Master] Time of Day: 07:33 AM. Day 6 Pen ___ de, Kye {Late Winter} 6th, 1266 TGR.

[Master] you have time to talk

[Master] with no one around

[Master] Phillpe is gone

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Get some rest Joseph. The death of the Ambassador was imminent. You must not blame yourself.

[Master] Jospeh is in his room

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (well I poked my head in)

[Spring] I am back at the keyboard.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i will have looked at him to make sure any injuries are handled

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] WTF that was hard

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] did i break klooge or something

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i was trying to type and my cursor kept vanishing

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (doesn't seem more broken than usual)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and stuff kept happening in the main window

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that is odd)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (bob did do a map change - that sometimes causes a lag)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (if you try to type at the exact time the map is coming through it won't work)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] maybe that's it then

[Master] and you have the night to discuss things

[Master] before gathering in the morning

[Master] or prior to that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (joseph is in the room?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] he's off to his own rooom

[Master] right now you are where you want to be

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (ok - was just looking at icons in salon)

[Master] not in the salon yet

[Master] this is the night before or early morning etc.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so just kenna, imari and branwyn?)

[Master] yes

[Master] unless you want others

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] sigh. i am weary to my bones. are you?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes, It was quite an evening.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think we must have a talk with the staff tomorrow morning.

Branwyn (Lisa) shakes her head "I still cannot imagine what he was thinking!"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well who has not panicked and done something truly stupid? my problem is in his hiding this

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I any of you kiill an assassin while I am in the bath, please just tell me and not shove them under my bed.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (if any)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes. He hid it from her and then from us. It is frustrating.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so do you believe the rest of the staff has unshared clues?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is quite possible.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps a zone of truth for Atribella may be in order although I have not focused on her as she was not known to have been in the room.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She had not seemed to be in possession of anything of interest but then look at how wrong I was about Joseph.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] are all the leads exhausted in the mystery of who cast the so-called ward?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I believe so. The mysterious mage was killed in the Knife and Phillipe saw the body.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] he is beyond questioning unless we can find out where he was buried and have yet another seance

Branwyn (Lisa) looks around somewhat wearily

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) sighs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I know.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] if only there were a way to scry back in time

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] or see into memories clearly

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I was wondering if you would perhaps try to find the priest who performed the divination on the ambassador after she died.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i would certainly be happy to try

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Phillipe handed her remains to the Celestry without getting any names or full report.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] dear me

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But with her status, someone should know who sould have done it and mught be able to help fill in details

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i can ask appropriately

[Branwyn (Lisa)] All Phillipe told me was that he asked for the divination and the results were that she was poisoned and the staff did not do it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps there is more information that may be had.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sorry bad typing up there)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] indeed. i should go to celestry direclty after breakfast

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh, thank you. I think you will get much farther with them than I ever could.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If no one objects I should like to keep Joseph on.

[Imari (Mike)] nods

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i am surprised at that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If it was the Ambassador he had stabbed I would not suggest it.

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He was trying to protect. He just did it wrongly.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] VERY wrongly.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We must teach. All of us.

TMO has joined the game on Fri Jul 03 21:59:54 EDT 2015

TMO is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

TMO has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (hi tmo!)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (hi TMO!)

[TMO] (hello)

[Master] talking at night before meeting TMO

[Master] I will let them catch you up

[TMO] (alright. do I need to be in character, and if so, which one?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (getting ice - brb)

[Master] all three?

[TMO] (eek. jumping into the deep end)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] heh sorry

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] needed to change location

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] dogs are begging for somme fetch so moving this whole show outdoors

[Michael] So whatta we doing

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] there was a seance

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and a misunderstanding

[Master] right now finishing the questions and debate Michael, then mornign meeting with everyone then jump back to boat

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] joseph killed someone the night the ambassador died, but it wasn't the ambassador

[TMO] I am back at the keyboard.

Ilero (TMO)] T'at sound... suspicious timing.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] he figured it to be an assassin and he figured she wasn't all the way dead and finished the killing

Ilero (TMO)] Who was she?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] haven't been able to figure that one out

Marisu (TMO)] So we have a mystery assassin who killed the ambassador 3 different ways, and an unknown person on the premises mostly dead and finished off by Joseph?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so we still don't know who made any of the three attempts on her life

Marisu (TMO)] Wait.. how did the priests say the Ambassador die again?

Marisu (TMO)] *died

[Master] she was killed by poison, stabbed and burned

Marisu (TMO)] But which one killed her?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] the poison did the killing and the other stuff was insult to ijnjury

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Joseph thought he killed an assassin with a dagger and shoved her under the bed and left

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] ? or i heard wrong

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (kenna was right sorry - no to above)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] joseph seemed to indicate he thought the dagger he stabbed the girl with was the one that wound up in the ambassador

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] if i understood it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Assassin was not quite dead and was likely the one that stabbed the ambassador and set fore to the house

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (fire)

Marisu (TMO)] No, I just had a bad thought - that maybe the ambassador had a double, or a disguise, magical or otherwise, and the double was the one that was stabbed and burned, while the real ambassador was the other mystery lady. But if the priests say the ambassador was poisoned, then it likely wasn't it. My imagination is running away with me.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (priests say poison did her in but she was alive at the time she was stabbed I would think

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Anything is possible at this point

Marisu (TMO)] You say Joseph finished off the other lady. How was she injured enough to be 'finished off'?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No she wasn't. Joseph stabbed her first, shoved her under the bed and left. The next thing he knew the ambassador was stabbed and then the house is set on fire.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'm sorry if I'm not being clear.

Marisu (TMO)] I'm sorry I wasn't here to hear the tale the first time.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The ghost we say was badly burned and seemed to have died in the fire in the house

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we saw - jeez I can't type)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (i relate)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So that leaves the question of who sets off a fireball in a house and isn't smart enough to get out of its way?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I doubt she stabbed Waverlyn and set herself and the house on fire.

Marisu (TMO)] Another thought, my my imagination is working overtime tonight!, maybe the Ambassador was stabbed with a poisoned blade. The wound wasn't enough to kill her, but the poison added onto it was. And then the fire sprang up from nowhere, maybe from Joseph's wild talent, and finished off everything.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Poison blade is interesting....

[Michael] Man...Thats deep

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] there's a wild talent?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But joseph's power of flame is not that powerful.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but that is intriguing

Marisu (TMO)] Maybe under the stress of the moment, it ran completely wild.

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at kenna "he can do a few cantrips that is all"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hm

Marisu (TMO)] Or maybe something in the room was extra combustible, so his minor talent set that on fire.

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Marisu suprisingly "I hope your cantrips don't go wild under stress!"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Joseph said he heard a WHOOSH! before the flame.

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles. "I'm never stressed, Mistress Branwyn. I am imperturbable." She giggles at that patent falsehood.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is magic and not parlour tricks. But Imari can put him under her zone of truth again.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Or we can just ask again. I think he is done hiding things.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] indeed

Marisu (TMO)] He might not recollect if it was stress that caused it. But if the assassin planned to set fire to cover their tracks, the room might have had oil laid out. Or, if she were dying, the assassin may have just set the fire as her dying act.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] though sometimme it is hard to know what is important enough to mention

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (especially when it's one of BOB's characters)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (:-P)

[Master] grins

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps while Kenna investigates the Grand Celestry, some of you can question the staff again.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Kenna, bring people with you if you so not wish to go alone.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (do not)

Marisu (TMO)] Oh no, another thought. Is there a poisonous gas spell? Is that gas flammable?

Marisu (TMO)] Poisoned air, stabbed, burned.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] None of the staff passed out dragging Waverlyn out.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Really, Marisu! I think you are stretching.

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

Marisu (TMO)] Okay, good. We can probably ignore that one then. It's too complicated anyways. Simpler is usually better.

[Marisu]] (TMO) curtsies. "My mind is working overtime tonight, apparently."

Marisu (TMO)] Unless the priests specifically said she was poisoned, then stabbed, then burned, I like the idea of the poisoned blade. Otherwise, she'd most likely have had to eat or drink the poison, which points to one of the staff here.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs "That is a good thing. Then you can lead the Inquisition then along with Imari and her Zone of Truth"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I can invite Sinthorn to assist

[Master] it is a calling

Marisu (TMO)] Perhaps I am touched by Doyle, Saint of Complications and Mysteries.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] :-)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We shall do as much as we can from here and then have another seance next week.

Marisu (TMO)] I'll try not to sleep through that one.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Since this girl was probably paid then we can ask who hired her

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It really was odd. I was only able to hold the connection for one question. What were the odds that I ask the very question that lead to the discovery the Joseph stabbed her.

Marisu (TMO)] Maybe the ambassador upset the Kayugan gods so much they dispatched Doyle to remove her, and he did so in the most complicated and mysterious way possible.

[Master] makes notes on new saint of complications

[Michael] the funny thing about role play...the odds are never in our favor unless bob wants them to be :)

Marisu (TMO)] (you're welcome)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This Doyle sounds quite annoying

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hehehe

Marisu (TMO)] Very. But you'd get very frustrated with the writings of some of his leading priests throughout the years. Patron Christie primary among them.

Marisu (TMO)] (now I'm just being silly)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] :)

Marisu (TMO)] (and yes, I have an entire bookshelf full of mysteries)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (then get to work detective)

Marisu (TMO)] (that sounds like work)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I am the ghost whisperer in this drama apparently)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so the ward that might not have been ... was it only supposed to protect against magic?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] or is there such a thing as an everything-dangerous ward?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I believe it was to prevent teleporting into the house

[Master] that is what you were told

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There was only one door with a guard at it

Marisu (TMO)] What room did Joseph find and stab this mystery woman?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Her bedroom while she was using the privy

Marisu (TMO)] So he knows for a fact that the Ambassador wasn't in the room?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He said it under truth zone

Marisu (TMO)] Did she enter later? And how much later did he find her stabbed?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] 10 minutes

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She came back in, body under bed joseph leaves

[Branwyn (Lisa)] 10 minutes later she is stabbed but is not screaming for some reason and the house catches on fire

Marisu (TMO)] He came into the Ambassadors room, found the mystery woman, stabbed her and shoved her under the bed. The Ambassador came back, he left, came back 10 minutes later to find her dying?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] yup

[Branwyn (Lisa)] these guys are ridiculous

Marisu (TMO)] And we have the ghost to show that the woman died in the fire.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She was all burned up

Marisu (TMO)] Do we know for a fact that she was dead after Joseph stabbed her? Or could she have stabbed the Ambassador before dying?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Joseph thinks he stabbed her but she wasn't dead when he shoved under bed

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we may want more nouns

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That she must have come out again and stabbed the Mistress

[Master] chuckles at Spring

Marisu (TMO)] So he left the Ambassador alone in the room with a wounded, maybe dying, assassin?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] :)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] there ya go

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He thought he killed her

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] he figured the girl was dead

Marisu (TMO)] Ah, okay.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] then later he figured he was wrong

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i find it interesting that he said girl

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He was very upset when he found out

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] because in this world, we would never refer to a fully grown being as a girl would we?

Marisu (TMO)] (need to put kids to bed. back in a bit)

[Master] ding ding

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I would but okay)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i wonder how small a girl

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i also begin to wonder where on her body the ambassador was stabbed

[Branwyn (Lisa)] stomach

[Branwyn (Lisa)] she was in bed

[Imari (Mike)] ask him

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] thank you. that is pretty reachable

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] who would send a child to do an assasination?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (i was having a hard time getting a description out of Bob - even with my obs roll)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] on joseph's part, what makes him look at a child and see an assasin?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I asked and got burned and twisted)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] just being jumpy?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (yeow)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] What is a girl?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Jilly is 15 or 16?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you call her a woman or a girl?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] she may be a girl for being giddy, come to think of it

[Master] typcially girls are young, women are married

[Master] so you could have a younger woman

[Master] but in this case you can guess the person was not that old

[Master] mid teens

[Master] from the size of the ghost

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But it isn't like Joseph stabbed a 10 year old

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] true

[Imari (Mike)] mid teens is old enough to be in a guild

[Imari (Mike)] especially if she was adopted into it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Shur - Ilero's girlfriend is 17 I think

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i was thinking something similar. that an ambassador would rate someone with some mastery

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will work on the next seance.

[Master] Shur is a master at things it is true

[Branwyn (Lisa)] OR if Ilero wants to do a bit of sleuthing at the Guild.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (whee hot flash! this is awesome)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (precisely what i needed. outdoors. in the summer)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe he could get some intel on missing girll thieves

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (oh sorry)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (heh it's weird. and therefore fun. :-P)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] lol

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But there are lots of questions to ask now

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We can start making more progress on the murder investigation

[Master] I think you did well for one questino

[Master] NOW

[Master] jumping back to the boat

[Master] Spring you have a Sailor on the boat

[Spring] shucking my costume

[Master] you are under the Captain Nolin (TMO) NPC

[Master] and Connor (Mike) NPC

[Master] you just picked up Indigo, Hugh, and Isla yesterday

[Master] it is the middle of the night now

[Master] and you are getting ready to go on watch

[Master] LIsa? who is on middle watch?

[Master] Sailor #1 moved 2'10".

[Master] Captain Nolin moved 2'00".

[Master] Connor moved 3'11".

[Master] Mike ? you there?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (I can't remember - Indigo was on first I think)

[Master] Michael? ready?

[Sailor #1 (Spring)] :-)

[Master] so flip a coin, heads Indigo tails Hugh

[Indigo (Lisa)] A flip of the ol' kLoOge.Coin results in: Heads

[Master] there you go

[Imari (Mike)] yeah

[Master] Indigo and Sailor #1 who you do not know their name yet

[Master] Connor

[Master] you are the person in charge

[Master] the captain has been in his cabin

[Master] locked away

[Master] for the last three hours

Sailor #1 (Spring) checking things that need to be checked

Michael has left the game on Fri Jul 03 22:52:34 EDT 2015

[Master] (spring you make up your name as it comes up)

[Master] and when Michael returns

[Master] we will see

[Sailor #1 (Spring)] (okay. i forgot, we're on a river right?)

[Master] but till then

[Master] Indigo

[Master] yes

[Master] the Velikaya River

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.VelikayaRiver

[Sailor #1 (Spring)] (thanks)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Indigo is on watch with who? and does he need to roll for encounters?)

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DryadsLairPrincipality

[Master] Indigo is on watch with Sailor #1,

[Master] it is up to Indigo if he wants a better name than Sailor

[Master] and there IS an encounter

[Master] that is why the set up, grins

Sailor #1 (Spring) walking, checking, scanning the shore

[Master] ship is pulled into the bank over night

[Master] not enough people to man it to sail at night

Sailor #1 (Spring) really, really scannign the shore hehehe

[Master] (TMO is the person to answer the why of that)

[Indigo (Lisa)] So have you been sailing on this boat for a long time?

[Master] Connor is up

[Master] and being in charge

[Indigo (Lisa)] I'm Indigo by the way

[Master (to Spring only)] make it up as you want, just like Mike and TMO did last week when they were thrust into these roles

[Sailor #1 (Spring)] they calling me Leafus

[Leafus (Spring)] being on this boat long time

[Indigo (Lisa)] Hi Leafus.

Leafus (Spring) nods

[Indigo (Lisa)] You must be one of the best sailors then since you're one of the few that's left.

[Leafus (Spring)] doing my part. doing like they showing me this big

Leafus (Spring) holding hand to hip level

[Master] as tall as Indigo, grins

[Spirit (Master)] nolin

[Indigo (Lisa)] Hmmm. I just hope we get home soon.

[Leafus (Spring)] hoping.

[Leafus (Spring)] not liking boat on shore

Marisu (TMO)] (back)

Leafus (Spring) watching the brush

[Spirit (Master)] nolin

[Indigo (Lisa)] Indigo moved 54'11".

[Master] the river flows

[Master] soft gurgles

[Imari (Mike)] brb

[Leafus (Spring)] who calling for the Captain in dark?

[Master] birds in the trees

[TMO] I am back at the keyboard.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (oh, someone is saying his name. I thought you were answering a question)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (oh, someone is saying his name. I thought you were answering a question)

[Leafus (Spring)] (the question marks sort of lend the impression)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Indigo moved 13'03".

[Master] there is no one there

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (ah, wasn't at the bottom of the screen. It was posting)

Leafus (Spring) checking things that need checking, pacing, watching all around

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (is Nolin awake, or asleep? I think I saw Connor was in charge)

[Master] Conner was in charge because Captain Nolin has been in his cabin locked in for the last three or four hours

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (kk)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (we are just waiting for the encounter that is inevitably coming)

Captain Nolin (TMO) slams his door open. "What! If'n you want me, stop saying my name and come get me!"

Indigo (Lisa) spins around and looks at captain

Leafus (Spring) straightening up, looking all around

Indigo (Lisa) looks around at the others

[Leafus (Spring)] sir, seeing nobody!

Indigo (Lisa) thinking Captain might be insane he stands still and waits

Leafus (Spring) obviously listening hard as possible

[Spirit (Master)] nolin

[Indigo (Lisa)] (so we all hear that?)

[Leafus (Spring)] hearing!

[Master] smile what do you hear?

Captain Nolin (TMO) looks around, but sees no one talking. He looks confused.

[Leafus (Spring)] hearing captains name, sir

[Indigo (Lisa)] (is it a man's voice or a woman's?)

[Leafus (Spring)] (i presume we all can hear it, since BOB didn't whisper it)

Captain Nolin (TMO) looks relieved. "Oh thank gods. I'm not just hearing things then."

[Imari (Mike)] feeling tired, going to hit the sack

[Imari (Mike)] night all

Mike has left the game on Fri Jul 03 23:10:38 EDT 2015

[Master] hard to tell

[Leafus (Spring)] nitey nite, mike!!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (goodnight Mike)

Indigo (Lisa) whispers "Is it the witch?"

Leafus (Spring) shaking head don't know

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] This is more'n any Evil Eye I ever heard of, lad.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Bad luck I can handle, but if she's gone and sicced spirits on me...

[Indigo (Lisa)] Maybe you should talk to them.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I didn't even do anything!

Leafus (Spring) gesture against evil

[Indigo (Lisa)] They don't seem angry. They aren' yelling or anything.

[Leogran (Master)] Noli cough cough

[Leogran (Master)] damn

[Leogran (Master)] sheee

Captain Nolin (TMO) looks over the side of the boat.

Leafus (Spring) big ugly fown

[Leafus (Spring)] *frown

Indigo (Lisa) looks around

Leogran (Master) stands up

[Leogran (Master)] looks sheepish

[Leogran (Master)] just me Captain

[Leogran (Master)] have a bit o fun

Captain Nolin (TMO) looks puzzled, then upset, then murderously angry.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Uh-oh

Captain Nolin (TMO) starts laughing uproariously. "HAHAHA! You got me good, man!"

Leogran (Master) sighs deep relief

Captain Nolin (TMO) walks over and slaps him on the back, hard. "Don't do it again. Got it?"

[Leogran (Master)] Yes Captain

[Leogran (Master)] Got it Captain

[Leafus (Spring)] (okay but who is it?)

[Leogran (Master)] I will take the watch Captain

Captain Nolin (TMO) walks back to his room, chuckling to himself.

[Leogran (Master)] Oh man

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (now that everyone has no clue what Nolin is...)

[Leogran (Master)] Leafus! how come you did not tell me he was on deck?

[Leogran (Master)] the new kid I understand

[Leogran (Master)] but come on

[Leafus (Spring) (to Master only)] do i actually know who ??? is

[Leogran (Master) (to Spring only)] yes he is part of the crew

[Leafus (Spring)] not knowing you there

Michael has joined the game on Fri Jul 03 23:18:02 EDT 2015

Michael is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

Michael has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Leafus (Spring)] you hiding good

[Leogran (Master)] that is the point

[Indigo (Lisa)] Is that a good idea when the Captain says this ship is cursed by a witch?

[Michael] okay. don't know what happened but i'm here now again.

[Leogran (Master)] (back to boat now too Michael)

[Leogran (Master)] You have to ask the Captain about curse

[Leogran (Master)] I am tired

[Leogran (Master)] heading to my bunk

[Indigo (Lisa)] He didn't seem to want to talk about it

[Leafus (Spring)] i watching

[Leogran (Master)] I think you ask him in morning

[Leogran (Master)] he talk

[Leogran (Master)] YAWNS

[Leogran (Master)] ok

[Leogran (Master)] I have the early shift right

[Indigo (Lisa)] (should I wake Hugh for his watch?)

[Leafus (Spring)] i asking

[Leafus (Spring)] in morning

[Master] CLICK

[Master] and the morning of the 7th for you

[Master] you have been on board for just over 24 hours now

[Master] Hugh

[Master] Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] (anchors away!)

[Master] Connor (who is asleep from being up all night)

[Master] Nolin

[Master] pushes off the bank

[Master] and starts to slide down the river following the current south

[Indigo (Lisa)] (brb)

[Master] Hugh?

[Master] you are still on baby watch?

[Michael] yes. why?

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] yes why?

[Master] Spring was not here for that

[Master] Leafus might be curious about a new baby on board

[Leafus (Spring)] (was just now looking it up)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I don't know who leafus is. My connection is going in and out. I may have to stop soon

[Leafus (Spring)] (Leafus is a sailor)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Well, I am sure he is a nice guy, but I don't care if he's curious about the baby.

[Leafus (Spring)] :-)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Not to be rude or anything

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] That really sounded bad

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] sorry

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] but still

[Leafus (Spring)] mister, you needing anything?

Captain Nolin (TMO) whistles a tune while he works the main deck.

Leafus (Spring) peeking around at baby while doing the casting-off tasks

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Thank you sailor for your kindness, but I think I have it under control for the moment.

[Leafus (Spring)] letting me know, sir. anything.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Absolutely. Thank you.

Leafus (Spring) concentrating on tasks

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] So While I am Baby watch, should I take my turn rowing? I did agree to it after all

[Leafus (Spring)] captain, sir. having word?

Captain Nolin (TMO) nods and waves Leafus up to the main deck.

Leafus (Spring) speaking low

[Leafus (Spring)] sir, being proud sailing for captain nolin

[Leafus (Spring)] important

[Indigo (Lisa)] (back)

[Leafus (Spring)] captain, sir, telling about curse? i helping

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] No need to butter me up first, Leafus. I understand, after all we been through this trip. Can't be any easier on you lot than it is on me.

Leafus (Spring) listening

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I'll be honest, if it's a curse, it's the worst aimed curse I ever seen. Ain't none of my crew done nothing wrong, but they're the ones gone to pirates and the Navy.

Leafus (Spring) frowning

[Leafus (Spring)] not going anywhere, staying with captain nolin

[Master] Hugh and Indigo are there on deck

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] 17 voyages I captained this ship, with no more than a few losses here and there. Maybe the gods thought I was due.

[Leafus (Spring)] (so i gather the vessel has been pressed and pirated and the captainn figures it's on account of a curse?)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (yep. superstition runs strong in sailors)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (of course, this world has magic. It *could* be a curse)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (there should be a crew of about 100+ and you have a little over a dozen on board if I recall correctly)

[Master] yes

[Leafus (Spring)] (dude)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (yes this is almost a ghost ship)

[Leafus (Spring)] sir, we having to do some luck magic

[Leafus (Spring)] some one of us must knowing some

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I'm open to ideas, man. I've tried everything I can think of to bring on better luck.

[Leafus (Spring)] brother turlow putting underwear backwards. dumb magic. not working

Leafus (Spring) scratching skull, trying to remember anything

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I wasn't even sure if Turlow owned underwear.

Leafus (Spring) disgusted face

[Leafus (Spring)] better not to know

Captain Nolin (TMO) nods. "My thoughts exactly."

[Leafus (Spring)] sir, mebbe them knowing something

Leafus (Spring) looking over at passengers

Captain Nolin (TMO) looks thoughtful. "It's an idea."

[Leafus (Spring)] captain asking? or captain turning underwear?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (LOL)

Captain Nolin (TMO) gives Leafus a look.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Send one of 'em over to me, would you?

[Leafus (Spring)] aye sir

[Leafus (Spring)] mister indigo sir, captain talking you a minute?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (hugh want to go? - poor michael has had no action tonight)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Yes god please

Captain Nolin (TMO) boots Leafus lightly in the rear as he turns to go to the passengers.

[Leafus (Spring)] (good thought, sorry)

Indigo (Lisa) nods over to Hugh

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (just reinforcing the chains of command)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Think the Captain wants us Hugh.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (have to do that when the crew has ideas the captain didn't think of first)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Can you talk to him? Was a long night.

Indigo (Lisa) whispers "Be careful"

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I have no idea what i'm doing just so you all know

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] really laggy

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] getting bits and pieces

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I c..n tal... ..ke th..s

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] what?

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (heehee)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (no worries. rp as best you can with what you have)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] so i'm just talking to the captain?

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (yep. he's called up one of your group to come talk to him)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Morning Captain. What can I do for you?

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Morning lad. Appreciate your coming up here. Uh.. sorry, what's your name again? 'Fraid I didn't catch it yesterday when you all boarded.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I'm Hugh. No worries

[Master (to TMO only)] and he has a baby with him

Captain Nolin (TMO) nods. "Hugh. A good name, that. A fit name for a man... carrying a baby. Alright, I gotta ask. What's with the baby? Did you lose the mother somewhere?"

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Ya paid for the baby to come along, so I got no beef with it, but it's damned odd, I'm saying.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Well quite frankly I have no idea where Mercy came from. We stumbled upon a camp. All setup with horses wagons, cloth goods, and even a ready fire. Except, there was no one there! It's as if they all dissapeared into nothing. We searched the area looking for at least a hint of people and found none. We found the baby hidden in a tent under a cot. The tent was freezing. I wasn't about to let the kid die. So, I'm taking care of her. Quite frankly, the farther we get away from that camp the better I feel. It wasn't right. Downright frightening and I've seen a dragon up close. It's a bad omen. We should continue to put some distance from it.

Captain Nolin (TMO) snorts. "Just what I need. More bad omens. It's just odd, three grown men traipsing about the wilderness with a baby." He glances over at Indigo. "Errmm... that one *is* a grown man, right?"

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) smiles

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] yes

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] He also dislikes the idea of being tossed in the air to reach things

[Indigo (Lisa)] (isla is all woman btw)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Indigo is a man right?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (2 men and a woman that wants nothing to do with a baby)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (I forget that all the time!)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (yes he is)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I'm totally fine with the baby FYI

[Indigo (Lisa)] (that's fine - you just have to admit it makes a funny picture to strangers :) )

[Leafus (Spring)] :-)

Captain Nolin (TMO) nods again. "Thought so. Good." He suddenly remembers there was a point to this conversation. "Right! So, anyways, what I wanted to know was - do you all have any blessings or anything you can put on the ship? As you can see by all the empty space we got, we been having a run of bad luck or something this trip, so if there's anything you can do to counter it would make your trip to the city all the much better, don'tcha think?"

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I am afraid my skills are more along the lines of languages and slipping daggers into my foes. However, I would be happy to inquire of my companions.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Good, lad. Appreciate it.

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) wanders over to companions

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Do either of you have a blessing to cast upon the ship to negate this percieved curse?

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I certainly am no priest

Indigo (Lisa) shakes his head "Me either"

[Indigo (Lisa)] When we get home we can have our people do something.

[Indigo (Lisa)] But I don't know what we can do until then.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Alright. I'll inform the captain. Any ideas on what I can say to help put him at ease?

[Indigo (Lisa)] I can wave my Partik amulet around this ship

[Indigo (Lisa)] Partik watches over travellers

[Indigo (Lisa)] But I don't know if it will do anything with me doing it.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Hey whatever might help. Yeah, but Partik also kills you to heal you from what I understand. Not exactly a comforting thought. I don't think it matters to much. Mental comfort is half the battle for the sailors anyhow.

Indigo (Lisa) pulls raven feathers out from under his shirt

[Indigo (Lisa)] Imari made me a new one

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Great. I'll inform the captain. Make sure that the sailors see you doing it. Might make them feel better [Indigo (Lisa)] Well it can't hurt anything. It can only help.

[Indigo (Lisa)] I'll walk around the ship.

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (they lynch Indigo for witchcraft)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (lol)

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) heads up to the captain

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] None of our party is a priest per say, but we know several

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] one of them has given us a charm that may help

Indigo (Lisa) walks around the ship waving his raven feathers and murmuring requests for Partik to watch over us

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] He will be wandering around the ship attempting to dispell any curses

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] It is all we can do I'm afraid until we return to port

Leafus (Spring) eavesdropping, visibly relieved

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] When we do, we might be able to assist more

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Partik, eh? I would'na have picked out that one as being from that part of the world.

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Our group is full of surprises.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (he's adopted)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] They are mainly composed of mercenaries from what I understand

Captain Nolin (TMO) nods, satisfied. "Thanks a bunch, fellas. We'll take any help we can at this point."

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] No problem Captain.

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) wanders back to Mercy

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Hey Bob, tonight is a really bad night for me, the storms are playing havoc with my work and I'll need to go soon. I'm so sorry guys.

[Master] no worries

[Master] is a good night for eeryone

[Master] everyone's interactions

[Leafus (Spring)] (that sounds so sucky michael)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] yeah it does. :) But I wouldn't do any other job

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I give myself about 1/2 hour and then I'll need to go

[Indigo (Lisa)] it's about time to call it any way I think)

[Master] I do not want to stop you

[Master] sliding down the river

[Master] mid day on the sixth

Leafus (Spring) doing things that keep the ship going

[Leafus (Spring)] (so specific!)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Pull that thing! No! The other thing!

[Leafus (Spring)] (LOL!)

[Master] warm smile

[Master] so if you are ready

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (one of the non-famous quotes from Princess Bride)

[Master] as you sail along

[Master] up on the left side

[Master] there is a clearing

[Master] and a town

[Leafus (Spring)] (port!)

[Master] on the eastern bank

[Leafus (Spring)] town ho!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (maybe we you could kidnap some locals and increase the crew)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] About gosh darn time

[Master] going to test

[Master] see if this map works

[Master] if not then good night everyone

[Indigo (Lisa)] ok

[Leafus (Spring)] (braced for it)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] I have a map

[Indigo (Lisa)] got it

[Master] you would come from the left side of the map

[Leafus (Spring)] i see it

[Master] and yes

[Master] Indigo, Hugh, never knew this place was here

[Indigo (Lisa)] (that is a big town)

[Leafus (Spring)] so we have to come around the seawall. or rather a river wall

[Master] Nolin avoided it last time

[Master] because of the curse

[Indigo (Lisa)] What's the name of this place?

[Leafus (Spring)] sir, we putting in or going by?

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (my 'curse', or the town has it's own?_

[Master] Deksport

[Master] but you do not know that yet

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (Nolin knows?)

[Master] no

[Master] grins

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (how much further to the city?)

[Leafus (Spring)] (wait, a town on the river nolin doesn't know? this isn't our usual route?)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (too far south, probably)

[Master] at least 100 miles to the wall

[Leafus (Spring)] we can see it that far away? wow

[Master] lol

[Indigo (Lisa)] (what wall?)

[Leafus (Spring)] (the harbor has a wall in it)

[Leafus (Spring)] (like a seawall only more rivery)

[Master] the wall across the pensula

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DryadsLairPrincipality

[Indigo (Lisa)] (ok - got confused - thanks)

[Leafus (Spring)] oh wait, i am looking at the wrong wall

[Indigo (Lisa)] (so 100 miles to this city and how many miles to our city?)

[Master] 100 miles from this city to the wall

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] Lads! Listen up! I'm thinking we need a bit of rest before we make the last leg to the city, since we're so shorthanded. But! Any of you decide to jump here, just remember you won't get none of your share! You all saw the blessing on the boat, we should be golden now! Or as much as possible. Stick together in town. Don't let no one wander off alone or do anything too stupid! We can't spare none of you! Keep your eye out for any likely recruits, too! More hands means less work for you, remember!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (got confused again)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (got confused again)

Indigo (Lisa) looks down and hopes Partik was listening to him

[Leafus (Spring)] (i gave up)

[Master] so does that leave you at a good break?

[Master] you can figure it out over the week

[Master] and be ready to expolore the city on the site and next week?

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (the wall north of the city, I'm thinking)

[Captain Nolin (TMO)] (not the river wall here)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (sounds good to me)

[Master] right

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I am good with that

[Leafus (Spring)] test

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] So I'll will see you all next week!

[Indigo (Lisa)] Goodnight!

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Thank you for the fun guys!
