[John A] so short hell

[Master] as in one hour from now?

[mharm-15549] Also no. Work is picking up and I haven't had time to do anything I've watned to. Mario Oddessey is beconing me from a shelf. At night I think it hears it calling my name.

[mharm-15549] Oh, no

[mharm-15549] AZ Time LOL

[mharm-15549] three hours

[Master] good

[Master] Carissa will be about an hour late

[John A] we need to be torcher a bit longer

[Master] she posted

[mharm-15549] I'll check that right now. I'll also grab a drink and settle the dogs down.

[Master] you both read the wedding post and Branwyn's letter to Jennevive?

[John A] Lisa never finished her second letter, heard from her?

[Master] I hve heard from her yes, and she is having to figure out how to write to someone who cannot read, grins

[Master] I did give her an out

[John A] emoji

[Master] we shall see what happens

[Master] LOL

[John A] he has people for that

[John A] but I decided my next character will have the Sun sphere

[Master] chuckles

[Master] and will move out from The Mist?

[John A] was think of a recon to the mist

[John A] religious quest

[Master] ok

John A has left the game on Fri Nov 10 19:12:12 EST 2017

[mharm-15549] I'll try and think logically. But someone will probably have to knock Hugh out. Maybe Neith will, she's ot as invested for this

[mharm-15549] I have to think about it

[Master] the wedding is already over

[mharm-15549] But we havne't abaondoned sam yet

[mharm-15549] do we know?

[Master] this is true

[Master] yes you were at the wedding

[Master] your whole group

[Master] plus other guests

[mharm-15549] LOL. Let me see where that post is. I just read the letter

[Master] bothers sister etc

[Master] on the main Era page

[Master] there is a direct link to the wedding

[mharm-15549] Oh you mean the brothers that will shorty be murdered in cold blood?

Lisa has received the map Overland travel.

[mharm-15549] Hey Lisa

[mharm-15549] Nice letter

[mharm-15549] I'm still catching up

[Lisa] hello :)

[Master] hello

[Lisa] I half wrote the Branadarus letter but a- got busy this week

[Master] grins

[Master] no worries did you see John's suggestion?

[Lisa] and b- seemed a bit self-indulgent

John A has joined the game on Fri Nov 10 19:17:13 EST 2017

John A is receiving the map Overland travel...

John A has received the map Overland travel.

[Lisa] that he has people to read them?

[Master] it is ok to be indulgent on your wedding day :)

[Master] or using emoji

[Lisa] lol

[John A] hey, back for round 2

[Lisa] but I was contemplating what branwyn would do with less time than Lisa has in that situation and she chose not to tell branadarus his mother is a big lying killer vampire woman

[Master] plenty of time for that in the future

[John A] or the past

[John A] wrong game, sorry

[Lisa] and if you just marry me an let me take you away permanently from the home you grew up in to live in a fig bank - you don't die

[Master] heh

[Master] fog

[Lisa] fog bank

[Lisa] yes

[Lisa] we aren't going to Greece sorry

[Master] although figs are very Greek

[Master] grins

[John A] you can notguarentee he will not die either way

[John A] you can guarentee he will die either way

[mharm-15549] Well It wasn't a red wedding

[mharm-15549] The murders happen soo though

[mharm-15549] We better make haste before she hunts us down

[John A] 2 days

[Lisa] so the letter would not serve as a warning or advancement on the story

[Master] John and Michael ideas on what to do?

[Master] Out of character

[mharm-15549] I'm not really sure what I can do

[mharm-15549] to be honest

[mharm-15549] The wedding is over

[mharm-15549] We now have two choices

[Master] no need to worry bout what you CAN do it is all about what you WANT to do

[Lisa] branwyn put the onus on jennevive so I think it is dependent on how much she tells them :)

[John A] get Brandaras to Saftey

[Master] then you can work out if that can happen

[John A] get all of us out of here

[mharm-15549] Lisa wants to leave with Brandarsu from what the letter says

[mharm-15549] Lisa is that what you want?

[mharm-15549] We'll follow you to the end if that's what you want here

[Master] I can answer to the Jennevive question for the other characters in that she was locked in a room till just before the wedding so she did not have a chance to talk to them

[Lisa] yes I want us all to leave

[John A] then regroup and warn the prince when we pick up our stuff in town

[mharm-15549] What we want is highly dependant on what Lisa wants

[mharm-15549] Then we leave

[mharm-15549] see simple

[Lisa] I would like to see that sam is staying voluntarily

[mharm-15549] I feel like shit doing it

[John A] i am sure he will ant to stay

[John A] but is it free will

[Lisa] and I want sam to know what he is staying with

[mharm-15549] but I'm not sure what else I can do without breaking an oath or two in the process

[mharm-15549] I do feel that should be told to him

[John A] you want someone to stay with him?

[John A] did I already volunter Aunt jen

[John A] or Miranda and/or Hoffman

[mharm-15549] Hones to God, I would stay with him if I could. No one should be in that sitaution witout backup

[Lisa] no one volunteers Jenn :)

[Lisa] you can have Hoffman try to tell her what to do

[John A] we are OCC, Hoffman would have a diffrent approach

[Lisa] but to get her to stay would be IC

[Lisa] I have no power over the NPCs

[John A] It seems more like talking BOB into it

[mharm-15549] You could use the gate scroll couldn't you? But, that's selfish of me to say. You may have a higher purpose for using it. I just thought I would remind you that it's an option. I'm just tying to talk our way though them

[mharm-15549] Can vampires use great magic?

[Master] Gates work by opening for X amount of time to allow people to go through

[mharm-15549] I don't know much about them in BOB's world

[Lisa] the gate scroll is to go return that overdue library book

[mharm-15549] LOL

[Lisa] the fines are enormous!

[Master] or to get back from returning that book

[John A] smiles

[Master] and LOL

[Lisa] which was very nice of her

[Master] and yes Carissa that is a quote for the night

[mharm-15549] So magic bob? Can she track us? I assume she has some sort of seeing gift, because she can tell parts of the future

[Lisa] her new mother-in-law telling branwyn to go to hell

[Master] grins

[John A] she knew we needed the scroll

[Master] thank you for getting the double meaning

[mharm-15549] thats "Hel" in this world?

[Lisa] how did she know?

[Master] Hell is a place Hel is a goddess

[mharm-15549] oh shit

[mharm-15549] let me check the archives

[Master] and there is a reason that Branwyn likes The Mist and the comfort of no divination spells


[Lisa] yes

[mharm-15549] ;)

[Master] but there is also a son who is very happy he found someone to adventure with

[Lisa] but jenn could have said something to something walking to or during the wedding

[Master] and all the cool fun places she goes

[Lisa] people are always whispering during wedding

[John A] things always change after you get married

[Lisa] to someone

[Lisa] bad news to start off typing so badly

[Master] Spring will not make it in she is stil moving

[mharm-15549] She's moving?

[Master] her new tiny home she is building

[mharm-15549] Oh

[mharm-15549] Cool

[Master] but I do agree with LIsa that whispering during the wedding can happpen

[John A] do you want me to object?

[John A] cough

[John A] cough

[Master] HAH

[Master] do you think that the Queen will let someone?

[John A] i am keeping my mouth shut until I get told what to say or do

[Master] best to treat the wedding as completed

[Master] because we are going to pick up with the reception afterwards

[mharm-15549] I cried tears of happiness

[Master] Time of Day: 01:05 AM. Day 16 Mid ___ tre, Spe {Early Fall} 16th, 1267 TGR.

[mharm-15549] I am back at the keyboard.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] so is this it?

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] TMO?

[Master] he will be in, just late, no clue about Mario

[Master] no response to text

[Master] I am

Miranda Paige (John A)] So Hugh, what did you think

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] The wedding was most beautiful don't you think?

Miranda Paige (John A)] little formal and stiff for me, maybe the party will be better

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (We are at the receptioN? Have we spoken to Bran since before the wedding or is this our first opportunity to speak to her since we got here?)

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (This is important bob)

Miranda Paige (John A)] i not sure if we should drink

[Master] you have not spoken to anyone yet

[Master] you are gathering after the ceremony

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Can we see her and approach?

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I want Hugh to approach now if possible

Miranda Paige (John A)] i bet Branwyn is so glad to get this over with

[Master] Tiberius' family is gathered around

[Master] and yes you can go approach as you wish

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Approach politely with a nod to both Brandarus and Branwyn

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Hesitates to see if someone stops him

[Master] grins they are both Branadarus now

[Miranda Paige]] (John A) waves to the new bride and groom

[Master] Mario says hopefully soon

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) comes to a stop in front of Bran and Bran

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "MY lord"

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Turns

Branwyn (Lisa) looks over uncertainly and smiles at Miranda

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "My Lady"

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Locks gazes with Branwyn

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "I congradulate you on your most beautiful wedding."

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (You may wish to not respond for a moment)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am glad you all were able to make it here on time. I have missed you.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (like that :)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you.

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) expression most serious

Lord Branadarus (Master) grins happily

Lord Branadarus (Master) turns from his brother

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "I am honored to be serving the two of you"

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Hugh, thank you

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] not serving

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] no no

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] same as always

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) stares intentedly at Brawny but acknoleding his words

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] just because I married her does not make me any higher up

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "I would do anything for the both of you"

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I am still the same person

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "In life and Death"

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) now turns and looks straight in the eye

Queen Cinna (Master) shakes her head ruefully with a slight smile

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Is there any immediate assistance you need. For you of course. Any action I can do for either of you?"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That goes for me as well

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Same Branwyn

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Have you had anythign to drink yet Hugh?

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Warily looks at the Queen

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] the rooms were good ?

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "My Lady. It is an honor?"

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I am sorry they did not know who you were when you came

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Yes my Lord Branadarus. They were most conmfortable."

Queen Cinna (Master) smiles at Hugh

[Queen Cinna (Master)] Thank you Lord D'Ambray

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Hughs blood turns to ice

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) but stands fast next tot he happy couple

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I am glad you could make it to see how happy Branwyn and Tiberius are

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Yes. I am sure they are most happy."

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Bows deeply

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) voice seriously

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "There is nothing I wouldn't do for them. Even in death."

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) backs away.

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I do not beleive my son has been more happy since the day he got his first real sword

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Hugh is most loyal. he is a good man.

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Oh Mother, there was that basilisk

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and then that Minataur

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) quietlly

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and of course when we defeated the pirates on the bay that time

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) to Brawyn while the queen is somewhat distracted by Brandaras

Lord Branadarus (Master) grins, and looks at Brfanwyn

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] She is beautiful

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Strong and Brave

Branwyn (Lisa) looks up at Tiberius "You will have to tell me all these stories"

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) "We shall be close"

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) walks away

Lord Branadarus (Master) laughs and kisses her hands, We will make more

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That we will

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] (I do have some planned things but waiting for others to appear soonish I hope)

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Mother did you see the cake that Jilly made for you?

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] she did a very nice job

Branwyn (Lisa) eyes widen

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] although the cooks might not recover for a while

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] she is a stern taskmaster

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I don't have obs for Hugh I don't think. But I don know that this whole affair is somewhat stragne bob. I would like for Hugh to stay close by them. Do we have our swords? As if we are honor gaurds?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You let Jilly in your mother's kitchens?

Lord Branadarus (Master) laughs

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] You were not there to tell her no

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] how could I stop her?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] As if I could either

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I promised the Master Cook we would take her with us

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] She almost was torn I think

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am glad Jilly was able to do this thing. Thank you, darling.

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] The cook was most impressed with how much work Jilly got out of them

Jilly (Master) smooths out her dress

Jilly (Master) curtsies

[Jilly (Master)] Yes Princess Branwyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Jilly! You look beautiful

[Jilly (Master)] I made a mess of the birds

Branwyn (Lisa) gives her a warm hug

[Jilly (Master)] they were supposed to be

[Jilly (Master)] uffffff

Jilly (Master) hugs back hard

Miranda Paige (John A)] Hugh, you look so serious, relax

Miranda Paige (John A)] they look happy

[Jilly (Master)] I made the birds grey

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Murmers from side of Mouth

[Jilly (Master)] bu tthey seem more smoky

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Ther'es something about the queen."

[Jilly (Master)] I think they could be ok

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Her gaze was..."

[Jilly (Master)] but then the oven boys are not very even

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "I don't like this"

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Not at all Miranda

Miranda Paige (John A)] and you think your gonna do something about it

[Jilly (Master)] they need to learn to walk in a calm way

[Branwyn (Lisa)] They are beautiful.

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Scoffs

[Jilly (Master)] the grill marks on your lamb are not quite what I expect from them

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The birds

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "And then get cut down a moment later?"

[Jilly (Master)] and the bread is rising for breakfast

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Somehow I'm getting the feeling the queen could kill us all even by herself"

Miranda Paige (John A)] this day is all about Bran and Bran

[Jilly (Master)] but I ned to go fix them

Jilly (Master) curtsies to Branwyn

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Nods

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is time to relax and celebrate

[Jilly (Master)] Princess

[Jilly (Master)] LAUGHS

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No more work

[Jilly (Master)] and runs away

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Yes it is about them. But even Branwny looks a little strained."?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Jill....

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) turns to Miranda

Branwyn (Lisa) gives a small sigh

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "You've known her much longer than I. Does nothing feel a about this too you?

Miranda Paige (John A)] the only thing worse than messing with the bride on her wedding day is a mother on her son's wedding day

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) looks frustated

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Yes. Lets just make sure it continues to go beautifully. If you don't beleive me. Go introduce yourself to the queen. Look into her eyes."

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] This is more than I could imagine

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] .me Meanders away

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] In the morning

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] or when we wake up I suppose

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] we should start to plan our honeymoon

Miranda Paige (John A)] I am sure Branwyn is not happy about a controling mother scheduling her weding, but she is getting used to dealing with this political mess

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I was thinking we could go back to the Cordrawn Hills

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] there were some castles there that we can find

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (LOl. Hugh meandered away. But I'll pretend he heard haha)

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and see if there are any more

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Tiberius, do you think I might steal a moment with your mother. I have not thanked her properly for all she has done to make this evening perfect.

Lord Branadarus (Master) Oh

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Darling, we can plan adventures tomorrow.

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Oh

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] ok

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Tonight we relax

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Like Jilly

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I can spend time with Hugh and Hoffman

[Hoffman]] (John A) sees an opening and approaches Brandaris

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I don't think that word is in his Repetroire lisa

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] :)

[Hoffman]] (John A) deep bow

Branwyn (Lisa) curtsies to Queen Annia

Lord Branadarus (Master) HAH

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Hello again my Lord"

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] So where should we go?

Hoffman (John A)] congratulation Sir

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Wherever you wish

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] where do you think we should go?

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] what would be exciting

Hoffman (John A)] it is already tomorrow by my estimation

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I think the Mist would be interesting

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I have heard some of it

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] but it must be very dangerous

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I think Branwny has an itching to get tot eh mist as soon as possible

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] It must be

Hoffman (John A)] Just stay out of the swamps

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] It's an odd place

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and it would be so good

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] is there anyplace in Drillian that is not a swamp?

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] two hills and a swamp

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] does she live on a swamp?

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Laughs

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] or a hill?

Hoffman (John A)] stay on the hill,

[Hoffman]] (John A) laughs

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I would recommend the hill M'Lord

Hoffman (John A)] yes, we met there

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and Kel must be very funny

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] to see him in The Mist

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] do elves like The Mist?

Hoffman (John A)] no one likes The mist, cept maybe the undead

[Queen Cinna (Master)] it was very kind of you to think of this

[Queen Cinna (Master)] Yes Tiberius is quite unexpected

[Queen Cinna (Master)] it is one of the things that I cherish about him

[Branwyn (Lisa)] As I said when we met, Tiberius thinks the world of you. And so pleasing you is very important to me.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And I as well

Queen Cinna (Master) smiles

[Queen Cinna (Master)] It is more important to me that you please him

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I have fought with daughters before

Queen Cinna (Master) looks over and smiles at her daughter

Queen Cinna (Master) warm smile

Miranda Paige (John A)] (you guys are great at this ... sub talking)

[Queen Cinna (Master)] (uncaracterisic)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I only hope that we may be able to get to our honeymoon in short order.

[Miranda Paige]] (John A) wanders over to the cake

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I am certain you will go soon

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You know how travel is. The best of intentions and all.

[Queen Cinna (Master)] He will be wanting to travel with you again

[Queen Cinna (Master)] and I am not the person to stop him

Branwyn (Lisa) sighs "Oh yes, but sometimes travel is slower than one would like

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I might just have to whisk Tiberius away myself

Queen Cinna (Master) laughs

[Queen Cinna (Master)] spoken like an eager bride

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Or a desperate one...)

[Queen Cinna (Master)] his rooms are in the western tower

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sure that the others that I trvael with would be perfectly safe if I did that. Would you agree?

[Queen Cinna (Master)] feel free to whisk him away as soon as you can manage it

[Queen Cinna (Master)] Who could possibly wish to harm anyone who travels with you?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Other than the stray band of orcs? They should hopefully not run into any troubles I would hope.

[Queen Cinna (Master)] Orcs are a bother in the winter, too many garrisons allow patrols to go lax

[Queen Cinna (Master)] swift travel can help avoid that sort of problem

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (I love her confidence that we can somehow fly like the wind haha)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is our plan. Thank you for the advice.

[Queen Cinna (Master)] thank goodness that my own guards keep a tight reign on Cornelia

[Queen Cinna (Master)] they rarely let things get out of hand

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am just very eager to start our new life.

[Queen Cinna (Master)] beyond our borders however

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I wish I had more control

Miranda Paige (John A)] (ROFL)

[Queen Cinna (Master)] that I could influence what happen there

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Queen Cinna (Master)] ( I do think that Lisa has become a diplomat)

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (She lies through her teeth?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Life is change. Wishes may become reality

Miranda Paige (John A)] (smile and nodd, smile and nod boys)

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Smile and wave boys. Smile and wave! :) )

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (well there is a figurative gun to her head)

Miranda Paige (John A)] (right, sorry)

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I do hope that you enjoy a long and happy life

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Hugh tried to see if you were in distress)

[Queen Cinna (Master)]

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you Your Majesty. And you and your family as well.

Branwyn (Lisa) deep curtsey

Queen Cinna (Master) smiles and bows

Branwyn (Lisa) then backs away to take her leave

Miranda Paige (John A)] so Sam, how is the cake?

[Master] waiting for Carissa or TMO or Mario to show up before finishing this scene

[Sam (Master)] It is wonderful

Miranda Paige (John A)] (ok)

[Sam (Master)] have you had any?

[Sam (Master)] I think that Jilly did something with it

[Sam (Master)] there seems to be more grey than I would expet

[Sam (Master)] expect

[Sam (Master)] and it is a bit sweet

Miranda Paige (John A)] not yet, still feel a little out of place with all this royality. How about you?

Sam (Master) blinsk and looks around

[Sam (Master)] Oh I suppose this is just so normal for me, sorry Miranda

[Sam (Master)] The Queen is nice enough for a witch

[Sam (Master)] her daughter and sons are pleasent

[Sam (Master)] I am glad that Branwyn seems to get along with her, nodding to where they are talking

TMO has received the map Overland travel.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Yeah. About that. W'e're abandoning you to a vampire and she will murder all her sons and daughters. But you're staying behind. Good Luck!)

Miranda Paige (John A)] hat is normal, I am afraid to talk with them

[TMO] hi

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] HEY TMO!

Miranda Paige (John A)] (hey TMO)

[Sam (Master)] (hey there)

[TMO] (sorry to be late - hopefully am done with laboring for the night)

[Sam (Master)] Why would you be afraid to talk with teh Princess and Princesses?

[Sam (Master)] They are nice enough

[Sam (Master)] It is nice that Princess Grace from Terrabrink came

Miranda Paige (John A)] I oftem get Branwyn upset and I have no experience talking with nobles

[Sam (Master)] it was so short notice

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Hi TMO :) )

[Sam (Master)] I can talk with all the nobles of the Kingdom

[Sam (Master)] but I am not sure if I get Branwyn upset or not

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Jesus how are we going to break it to him?)

[Sam (Master)] (yes all of your characters are here after the wedding at the reception TMO)

Miranda Paige (John A)] do you still feel you want this life, sounded like you had doubt

[Sam (Master)] This life? you mean knowing who my father is? was?

[Sam (Master)] I suppose is

[Sam (Master)] I have no idea

[Sam (Master)] but I do know I need to be better prepared

Miranda Paige (John A)] you are who you are, what you do still is up to you, isn't it?

[Sam (Master)] Marisu showed me that it might not matter what you do, it does matter who you are, and then how you deal with it

[Sam (Master)] Did Marisu rebel against your Queen?

[TMO] (too much reading to try and get caught up - anyone give me a quick summary of what I need to know?)

[Sam (Master)] (that last line is all you need)

Miranda Paige (John A)] I know of no such rebelion

Miranda Paige (John A)] (at reception)

Miranda Paige (John A)] (Ilerro looking a pice of paper with lots of pictures)

[Sam (Master)] (Illero just gave away Brawnyn to Tiberius, now the reception afterwards, talking with Marisu, Miranda and Hugh and Sam about life)

[TMO] (have we been told of Bran's suspicion that the queen is a vampire?)

[Sam (Master)] (no)

Miranda Paige (John A)] (we still think she os only a witch)

[TMO] I am back at the keyboard.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Hugh doesn't like her direct gaze

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] chills his blood

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] told Miranda about it

Marisu (TMO)] Lord Hightower, I'll be happy if anything I've said has been useful to you.

[Sam (Master)] I do think you have given me good honest advice

[Sam (Master)] I hope that when you get home things work out for you the way you want them to

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles slightly, "That will depend on many, many variables, I'm afraid. There's very little I can do to pre-plan, but can only react to whatever sitiuation I find when I get there."

[Sam (Master)] I am becoming more aware that that is exactly what I must be doing the rest of my life

Miranda Paige (John A)] (so the one person best suited to stay with Sam, can't or wont?)

[Marisu]] (TMO) nods. "Bad things can happen if you're caught by surprise or un-informed."

Miranda Paige (John A)] is there something i can help you prepare for marisu? Seems I missed something

Miranda Paige (John A)] in my absence

[Sam (Master)] Her mother rebelled against the crown comitted treason

[Sam (Master)] from what Brawnyn told us

[Miranda Paige]] (John A) taken aback

Miranda Paige (John A)] oh

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles gratefully at Miranda. "Thank you, Miranda. I'll be happy to fill you in on what I know on the trip back. It's not really a suitable topic for the happy occasion."

Miranda Paige (John A)] so Sam, you have spoken tot he Queen, tell us

[Sam (Master)] only for a few monments

Miranda Paige (John A)] first impression are important

Miranda Paige (John A)] kind of like when I am looking for a dog to train, the first few steps set up the rest of the relationship

Sam (Master) raises an eyebrow

[Miranda Paige]] (John A) shrugs

[Sam (Master)] I do not think that Marisu is ready to be trained

Miranda Paige (John A)] there I go again, sorry Prince, maybe i do need some cake

[Miranda Paige]] (John A) takes foot out of mouth and inserts cake

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles and shakes her head.

Sam (Master) chuckles

[Sam (Master)] It is good cake

Aunt Jennevive (Master) walks up to Branwyn

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Congratulations

[Hoffman]] (John A) looks arround

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I must say that I am happy for you

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles broadly at Jennevive

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

Aunt Jennevive (Master) HUGS Brawnyn quickly

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] then steps back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (aww I was going to hug Auntie Jenn)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] chuckles you can

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh Jenn. It is my wedding day. You can do better than that.

Branwyn (Lisa) pulls Jennevive into an embrace and whispers "Did you get my letter?"

Aunt Jennevive (Master) whispers back, of course,

Hoffman (John A)] (not just any wedding day, marrying royalty wedding day)

Aunt Jennevive (Master) and I have a plan

Branwyn (Lisa) backs up a bit to restore normalcy

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hope it is as good as Jillys' cake

Marisu (TMO)] (flee and leave this place to its fate?)

[TMO] [Marisu]] no longer targets Kel.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Anything I can do for you on my special day?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I do dispair at being better than Jilly at many things

Branwyn (Lisa) chuckles

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I wonder how she escaped the Church

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] with a bit of training she would be an excellent accolyte

Hoffman (John A)] (jilly is a spy)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am not sure the world would survive if Jilly could perform magic

Aunt Jennevive (Master) laughs

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] are you sure she does not already?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Her magic. She does not need the help of the gods

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I agree

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] we shall be ready when you want to leave later this morning

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is good.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] young Sam shall be ready too

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The Queen feels we should have safe travels home

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] (hoping for Mario or Carissa very soon to pull off that last scene)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Will he be returning with us?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] The Queen is most interesting

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I agree with your ideas

Hoffman (John A)] (required to have at least one elf huh)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] (not required, just good to have them here)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Shall we bid Sam goodbye?

[Master] Branwyn hugged her back

[Carissa] (That's what I get for skimming)

Aunt Jennevive (Master) smiles at the group

[John A] whispered sweetness into her ear

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Looks at Queen Cinna

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Prince Samuel Hightower

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] This morning is when we part ways

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] you have a great and glorious future ahead of you

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and your new patron, nods at Queen Cinna, will take good care of you

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] as you explore your options and your new paths

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Of course your friends will be watching eagerly to see what becomes of your choices

Aunt Jennevive (Master) hands Sam a wooden ring

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] This is a ring from the Elves of the Wildlands

[Carissa] (Whoa what?_

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] your friends are most eager to see what your future brings, if you need anything simply give this ring to a bird and it will take it to Shi and Kel's home for you

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] they will know what to do there

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] If they find it

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] from my own small give I give you this

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] hands over a quill

[Carissa] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (We will??)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] This is from a hippogriff

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] that was in the city you might recall

Aunt Jennevive (Master) grins

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] It shall help you write powerful letters

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and this is from Branwyn

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] hands over a scroll

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] She would hate for you to feel that you have no resources at hand

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] This is the treasury from Drillian, the remaining of the 100,000 allowance

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] we are happy to give it to you for you to spend as you wish

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] So that you know you have your own resources

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I do hope that Queen Cinna's choices for you will meet with your approval

Branwyn (Lisa) eyes widen

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Thats a lot of money)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and we look forward to hearing from you for many years to come

Queen Cinna (Master) eyes Jennevive

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I do look forward to helping Prince Sam find a glorious future

Branwyn (Lisa) raises her glass "here, here!"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] To Prince Sam!

Aunt Jennevive (Master) HERE HERE

Marisu (TMO)] We look forward to hearing all about his future as well.

Hoffman (John A)] HERE HERE

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] TO PRINCE SAM!

[Marisu]] (TMO) toasts Prince Sam.

Aunt Jennevive (Master) hands over a scroll to the Queen

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Here is a family tree that I have prepared

Branwyn (Lisa) drinks deeply from her goblet

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] so that everyone can see how Prince Sam is in line for the Kingdom of Jarvis

Queen Cinna (Master) eyes twinkle

[Queen Cinna (Master)] I must say that you have not stayed here long enough Aunt Jennevive

[Queen Cinna (Master)] it is too bad that you cannot stay longer

Aunt Jennevive (Master) smiles sweetly

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] OH I have so many more interesting ideas with Branwyn adn your son

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I cannot wait to see what happens

Aunt Jennevive (Master) looks around

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I do believe we are missing a dance?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Who is ready for me?

[Hoffman]] (John A) looks down

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) avoids eye contact

Branwyn (Lisa) takes Tiberius' hand "Yes. It is time for dancing I believe, my husband"

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Hugh steps forward

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) whispers to Kel (E) Where did she get that ring? Do you know what it means?

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Nieth Joins him

Lord Branadarus (Master) smiles and whisks Branwyn to the floor

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You are a brave man, Hugh D'Ambray

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] LOL

Branwyn (Lisa) as they pass

Aunt Jennevive (Master) slids over and takes Hugh's hand

[MarioCS] (E) I dont, maybe Teb does though. but i cant risk letting him out, here, now...

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (HAHA)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] gracefully sliding him out to the floor

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I see you can dance

[Shurkural]] (TMO) drags Ilero out onto the floor.

[MarioCS] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Oh goodness, no. Unfortunately that means we'll probably have to ask her later...

Aunt Jennevive (Master) a hand on Hugh's lower back

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] it is all about who is in charge

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Who leads

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and who follows

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) c'mon, lets show them how a dance is danced

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] No lower darling. Netih might have to have a word with you

[Hoffman]] (John A) holds miranda's hand and sways back and forth

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) grins and joins him

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Twirls Jennevieve

Aunt Jennevive (Master) laughs

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] I do like that you always seem to have the situation figured out. Well done. I feel the queen might like to stab you in the back

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Her eyes bother me

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I have no doubt of that

[Marisu]] (TMO) curtsies to Lord Sam. "Sir, may I have the pleasure of this dance with you?"

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] She is quite the prededor

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] (Move to the other dancers)

[Sam (Master)] Of Course

[Marisu]] (TMO) offers Sam her hand.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I hope to have put up some boundries for her

Neith of Inholt (mharm-15549) Neith silently fuming

Sam (Master) confident takes ehr hand

[Sam (Master)] Whirls her out onto the dance floor

[Sam (Master)] Thank you

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] If anyone could Jennevive, it is you

Sam (Master) holds up his hand with the wooden ring

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] You seem to always stir up trouble at the most inopportune time

[Sam (Master)] this is quite a prize

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) gins

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] oh no only at the proper times

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] when it gets a little boring

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Proper for whom I wonder?

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Things always stay interesting with you and Branwyn at the helm

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] to create what we all love

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] to live in interesting times

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Twirls again

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles and quietly says, "Aunt Jennevieve isn't someone to be overlooked. She made sure you and the Queen both know that you have powerful friends watching out for you."

[Sam (Master)] I am grateful to you for that

[Sam (Master)] and if I can ever help you and Branwyn

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Eyes Neith. Turns Red. "I do believe that we have enjoyed this dance. Perhaps a little too long." Politely ends the waltz, kisses Jennevieves Hand and Bows Deep.

[Marisu]] (TMO) looks down briefly. "If everything goes poorly for me, I may need a place to run to. I hope it won't come to that though."

Aunt Jennevive (Master) bows

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) "My friend would like a turn I'm afraid."

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and grabs Hugh by the back of the head

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] KISSES him deeply

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] TUGS on his hair

Marisu (TMO)] (TMO chuckles)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and then walks away

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Hugh's eyes turn glassy and turns bright red.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Walks to Neith

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] "Um"

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Hahaha)

Neith of Inholt (mharm-15549) Whips hand back and SLAPS Hugh

[Sam (Master)] If you ever do need a place....

[Sam (Master)] pauses and glances over at Neith

Shurkural (TMO)] NOW it's a party!

[Sam (Master)] Well I suppose now it is a party

Neith of Inholt (mharm-15549) Then grabs him and passionately gives kiss i in the back of the room

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) tries not to laugh

Hoffman (John A)] (smiles)

Shurkural (TMO)] (Shur oocly high-fives Sam)

[Kel (MarioCS)] hmphhh, humans

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Humans or Jennevive?

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Hugh just stands there. not really knowing what has happened in the last few seconds

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) yes and yes

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) shakes head and eyes ring

[Marisu]] (TMO) laughs. "Chaos follows Aunt Jennevieve everywhere."

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) She better not be the reason I'm dragged back home.

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) i think the ring is just a way to signal us that Sam needs help

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) but if we are not in Divaekah, then who will respond?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Any of the clerics. They can send me a message just as easily.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) I bet Father has a similar spell, too...

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) i suppose. i hope he secrets that ring so the Queen doesnt confiscate it

[Master] grins, and Jenn can create chaos in villages she has never visited,

[Master] gowns

[Master] bows

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And this does not surprise me :P)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) But would the clan be willing to help a Farthorn?

Marisu (TMO)] (I know that's supposed to be Far-Thorn, but I only see Fart-Horn)

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) How would they know who it's from? or where to go to help?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (LOL)

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) shrugs

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) the DIvaeki have long memories

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) More questions for her.

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) lets hope we never have to respond to it

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Although she said Wildland...maybe one of the other clans are involved?

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) nods in agreement

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) they could be, but only the lesser clans would be bitter enough to help a Fart horn

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) again tries to hide laughter

Marisu (TMO)] "After this dance is over, may I speak briefly in private with you on that balcony over there?" She nods her head to a balcony off the room in full view of the room.

[Sam (Master)] certainly

Marisu (TMO)] I don't believe the Queen will be upset if she can see us the whole time.

Marisu (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Sound Bubble -- # Memorized: 1 (0), CHANGED: Armor -- # Memorized: 0 (1),

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) wow, just a few cuups of Feywine, and this evening is reminiscent of another...

[Kel (MarioCS)] ?me stares at Shi

Marisu (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Message -- # Memorized: 1 (0), CHANGED: Shocking Grasp -- # Memorized: 0 (1),

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) rolls eyes and shakes head

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) i know, never again

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) And this is why I try not to drink much.

Marisu (TMO)] (changed her spells to diplomatic selection rather than travel)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) And this is certainly not the place

Marisu (TMO)] (since we had time beforehand)

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) no, we have to be sharp, no telling when someone can flip out

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) grins (E) And if you aren't careful, Jenn might pull the same trick on you as she did Hugh.

Shurkural (TMO)] (Shur would like to see that)

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) well, SHE wouldnt get so lucky

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And and and and and)

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) would you slap me affterwards?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) HA! You can do as you like, and I'd be too busy laughing.

Kel (MarioCS) looks half smiling at Shi " I think you would be a bit jealous, no?"

Kel (MarioCS) bats eyes comically

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) laughs (E) Who knows until it happens.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) But I'm not sure I could be jealous of her.

Kel (MarioCS) nods. " Oh, Jenn..."

[Master] The Queen and her children start to leave

Kel (MarioCS) giggles at Sgi

[Master] the other nobles have gone

[Kel (MarioCS)] SHi even

[Master] the group of you left

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] dear?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes?

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] My quarters are up there, points

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] shall we retire?

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) To Neith "Have I been Forgiven?"

Hoffman (John A)] (if you have to ask...)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That would make me very happy

Hoffman (John A)] (to both questions)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (kittens attacking - sorry)

[Neith of Inholt (mharm-15549)] "No. But I have plans for you so do stay away from Jenn? Hmm?"

Hoffman (John A)] /starts clapping

Hoffman (John A)] everybody

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) claps

[Hoffman]] (John A) clapping

Lord Branadarus (Master) SWOOPS up Branwyn and hoists her over his shoulder

[Hoffman]] (John A) waits for them to leave before escorting Miranda to their bed

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] gives her butt a swatt

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] and then starts to march up to the castle

Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549) Leads Neith Away

Branwyn (Lisa) starts to put up a fight reflexively but then gives up and lets herself be carried off like a sack of potatoes

[John A] that is good enough of an ending for me, I think I will get off to bed too

[John A] let me know if my characters wake up

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Before we can die in the escape? Aww)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Night, John!)

[John A] ttfn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (goodnight John!)

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Unfortunateyl I have to leave at 8 my time to

[John A] enjoy

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Night John

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so now the group is alone with Jennevive?)

John A has left the game on Fri Nov 10 21:43:32 EST 2017

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (With possible exeption to Branwyn? Or is she still somehow there?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (in case anyone else wants to dance)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no - she is gone)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Did I miss the discussion for morning plans?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sam and marisu are off alone?)

Marisu (TMO)] (I've just got my little thing to do and then I'm ready to continue on)

Marisu (TMO)] (just waiting for the go ahead that others are done)

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] (ready)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (If you need time, I have one more thing. It can wait, too)

[Marisu]] (TMO) moves them to a spot far enough away from others on the balcony.

Marisu (TMO)] [Marisu]] casts a spell against : Sound Bubble: Creates a bubble wall that sound does not cross

Marisu (TMO)] Hopefully the Queen can't hear through this. It's the best I can do.

Sam (Master) smiles

Marisu (TMO)] Are you okay staying here?

[Sam (Master)] As much as I am staying anywhere

[Sam (Master)] I seem to have some tools now

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles. "Just be careful you don't become one."

Marisu (TMO)] Or that at least you agree with the goals if you do.

[Sam (Master)] I think I will be more of a weapon

[Sam (Master)] and I need to be sure that it does not turn back onto me

[Marisu]] (TMO) nods. "Politics is a dangerous game, obviously."

Marisu (TMO)] What I wanted to say to you in private, when you write to any of us, and please do so often, make sure the first letters of your first few sentences spells any one of our names. So long as you do that, we'll know you're okay. If we ever get a letter without that code, we'll know you're in trouble.

Marisu (TMO)] So long as you vary it up, it shouldn't be an obvious code.

Sam (Master) smiles

[Sam (Master)] Thank you

[Sam (Master)] Keep Everyone Loose please for me Branwyn

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Full name or nicknames?)

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles. "Exactly."

Marisu (TMO)] (just to make Bob's life harder - write often, and write convolutedly)

[Sam (Master)] Many answers seem really insert something useful

[Sam (Master)] (bows)

[Marisu]] (TMO) chuckles. "Probably close enough."

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (So I vote full names. Names like Shi are too easy others ;) )

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] *otherwise

[Sam (Master)] Sometimes hestitent Informational letters

Marisu (TMO)] Is there anything further you need from us, as we are leaving promptly in the morning?

[Sam (Master)] I am looking at this as a new adventure

[Sam (Master)] and I will do my best

[Sam (Master)] Prince Loplin will be sad but proud

Marisu (TMO)] That is all anyone can ask of you.

Sam (Master) Sam gives Marisu's hand a kiss

[Sam (Master)] Thank you

[Sam (Master)] I think we should get back to the others

Marisu (TMO)] Of course. And thank you. I wish you all the best.

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Marisu]] (TMO) drops the spell.

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] drinks

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Sorry guts. I gotta go

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Night all!

[MarioCS] I am away from the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (goodnight Michael! Gald you made it in)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Night Michael!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Glad too )

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] It was a night to remember! :)

[Hugh D'Ambray (mharm-15549)] Be on next week and will read posts

mharm-15549 has left the game on Fri Nov 10 21:56:19 EST 2017

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] and so

[Master] the wedding party has left

[Master] the bride groom mother and brothers and sister

[Master] only the group left

[Master] what will you do?

[TMO] (that code was spur of the moment, or I'd have set it up beforehand)

[Master] grins, I like to think I did ok

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I worry about leaving the wolves alone for so long. I wonder if I can sneak back over and stay at the inn for the night...

[TMO] (yep!)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Is there anyone left/servant to ask?)

[Master] servants a plenty

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) goes to fetch a servant

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Excuse me. I wonder if it may be possible to return to the inn we were staying at earlier?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Attempt to be diplomatic: take one)

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] What is wrong my Highness?

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] We can fix what you need

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I left my, um, hunting dogs, and would prefer to stay with them for the night.

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] Prince Tiberius told us to take care of you

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] OH

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] OH you are the one with the wolves

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Er, yes?

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] He said you were strange like that

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] a wild woman

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] elf

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Sure, sure. So the wolves?

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] does it mean something different to be an elf than a woman?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] It shouldn't, I would think.

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] oh

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] ok

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] I am not sure if Prince Tiberius will like you not staying here

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] but if you insist we can have a carriage take you

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I understand, but I think he would also know that I'd hate to leave them.

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) turns to the rest of the party

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Do you guys mind?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Wait...does the carriage disappear?)

[MarioCS] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (rest of the party aka TMO)

[Shurkural]] (TMO) dances close with Ilero.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And Mario!)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Guessing Marisu isn't back, either?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (you would rather walk around at night in vampire town?)

Marisu (TMO)] Go on, Shi'Nynze. I'll make sure everyone gets home alright.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (HA! No, but she doesn't know better...does she?)

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) nods and smiles

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Thank you.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Are you staying, too?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (true - magic carriage is fun)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And self-splitting the party. Never a good plan, either)

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) no ill go with you

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) I'd hate for you to miss the fun. Or staying in a palace.

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) pff, i miss the pups

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) smiles

[Kel (MarioCS)] and it was cold last noght too!

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) to the servant girl, "Yes, a carriage back to the inn would be wonderful. Thank you."

Kel (MarioCS) giggles, cant hide the smile

Serving Girl capital (Master) bows

[Serving Girl capital (Master)] As you wish

[Master] Time of Day: 08:05 AM. Day 17 Ko ___ tre, Spe {Early Fall} 17th, 1267 TGR.

[Master] and so in the morning

[Master] Branwyn and Tiberius wake in his tower

[Master] the sun is shining

[Master] lower in the palace the rest of the group wakes up

[Master] Kel and Shi are in the stables with the wolves

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Good morning, husband.

Lord Branadarus (Master) beams

Marisu (TMO)] (lightning, earthquakes, volcanos)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do like the sound of that

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] carried along by the river of dreams in the middle of the night

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] it is wonderful to wake with you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We have done that before.

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] never like this

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'm not really a princess am I?

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] you are

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Princess Branadarus

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do I really have to add not one but two more names to my title?

Branwyn (Lisa) grins

Marisu (TMO)] (the truth is revealed - all this time she's just been jealous that Ilero was higher ranked than she. :P )

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] (LOL)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But only a princess when I am in Cornelia, correct?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You travel as Lord Branadarus

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Princess Marquessa Branwyn the Mysterious of Cornelia

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It is quite a mouthful

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] or Princess Marquessa Branwyn the Mysterious of Drillian and Cornelia

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] hmmm

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But you forgot the Branadarus part

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] we might keep Jilly busy for a bit

Marisu (TMO)] (at a guess, two separate titles, one for Cornelia, one for Drillian, not mixed.)

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] Princess Marquess Branwyn the Mysterious Branadarus of Drillian and Cornelia

Marisu (TMO)] (Marquessa Branwyn Branadarus the Mysterious of Drillian, Princess of Cornelia. And vice-versa)

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] imagine if she has to put that on scrolls

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think we should just stick with Branwyn except in formal occasions

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] (grins see that is why Marisu is a trained diplomat)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But I must memorize spells.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And I do want to say goodbye to Sam before we leave

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There is something I must say

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] we can leave when you wish

[Branwyn (Lisa)] May we travel back with the others so that we may both see Cornelia as we leave?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would hate to miss it entirely and ...

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] certainly

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well we will be travelling far from your home

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you.

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] it will be a great adventure

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes an adventure of a lifetime

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Now go and let me concentrate. I shall not be long

Lord Branadarus (Master) dramatic sigh

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] My poor tortured husband

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I shall fetch Sam fo ryou

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

Lord Branadarus (Master) grins

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] I like that

[Lord Branadarus (Master)] we will meet in the courtyard

[Branwyn (Lisa)] All right. I must hurry

[Master] and an hour or two later everyone except Kel and Shi are gathered in the courtyard

Marisu (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Sound Bubble -- # Memorized: 0 (+0), CHANGED: Shocking Grasp -- # Memorized: 1 (0),

[Master] Sam is there to say good byes

Sam (Master) thank you for staying with me last night Marisu

[Kel (MarioCS)] (i guess her unicorn catching days are over...)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Whoops didn't say goodbye to Sam. Oh well!)

Marisu (TMO)] Thank you for the dance, Lord Sam. I trust you will be well here in Cornelia.

Marisu (TMO)] (I smell a rat, btw)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Sam, I know that everyone has told you that we are at your service if ever you need us.

[Sam (Master)] I know and thank you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It has been an honor to know you. You were so welcoming since our arrival. You made our time here so much easier.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There is only one other thing I want to say.

[Sam (Master)] You have helped me more than I helped you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Please consider staying in touch with your guardian.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Prince Loplin loves you very much.

Sam (Master) nods carefully

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I know he hid these things.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Sometimes ... sometimes when you love someone you try to do what is best to keep them safe

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He thought he was doing what he could to keep you safe.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Politics is dangerous and no matter if he was misguided. he did it out of love for his adopted son

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Awww poor Branwyn...)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not to manipulate you.

[Sam (Master)] I know he did what he thought was best

[Sam (Master)] maybe in the future I will be able to understand his choices

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Just please think on this. He would do anything for you if you need him to. And he will be closer to you than we will.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hope so too.

Branwyn (Lisa) whispers almost silently "Ohhh I hope so"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So good luck to you, Prince Sam

[Sam (Master)] Good Luck to you Princess Branwyn

Branwyn (Lisa) curtseys

Sam (Master) bows

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

[Master] and so

[Master] the curtain closes

[Master] warm smile thank you all

[Master] very very well done

[TMO] so, did the Queen sleep with Sam disguised as Marisu? Is that what I saw there?

[Master] LOL

[Master] no

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (LOL)

[TMO] ok, so I read too much into that sentence then. The curse of a dirty mind.

[TMO] but I wasn't the only one

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Wow I didn't see that part?)

[Master] was up to you how much you wanted Marisu to do

[TMO] not that much, although the temptation was there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (just depends on your definition of 'spend the night')

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sounds like a question Shur might ask when we get on the road, maybe? :) )

[TMO] lol

[TMO] mmmmmayyyybe....

[Master] so many very good paralle conversations going on

[Master] very well done

[Master] and a new way for Carissa to write summaries

[Master] what was said versus what was meant in other words

[Master] as she will not do any more screen play versions

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (summary of inneuendo?)

[Carissa] Heck no. Screenplay was torture for me.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I thought screenplay version was clever)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (but yes I imagine it was harder)

[Carissa] I thought it could be too, and then I wrote it, and it was a pain :)

[Carissa] But a good way to fit in quotes.

[Carissa] Now how to write it with parallel convos...might think on it, or might do normal summary format :P

[Master] who said what to who and meant to whom where

[TMO] any changes I need to make to the coding for those?

[Master] hah

[TMO] I'm glad it's helping.

[Carissa] Very much!

[Master] I wonder if we can do an auto for (E) to convert to elven?

[Carissa] I actually put off the last one because I was waiting for the formatted version

[Master] smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I can try to split them apart in the summary if it will help)

[Master] now the pressure is on TMO and Lisa

[Master] the three of you have done a wonderful job of those

[TMO] how do you mean an auto for E?

[Carissa] Yes, it very well might. Guess we'll see whatever I come up with tomorrow/Sunday and you can go from there, Lisa.

[Master] no clue TMO

[Carissa] At the least,I'm sure I'll miss something.

[Master] and Mario can add his two cents on Monday

[Carissa] Is there something better than (E) to use to help convert?

[Master] grins, we can have a commentary on the commentary on Monday nights

[Master] I liek the (E)

[Master] and (D) etc

[Carissa] Same, but if it helps for formatting later, willing to switch as needed.

[Master] (E) elven, (D) dwarven, (H) Hin

[Master] etc

[TMO] I don't see a way offhand to put codes in Klooge that then auto-format in html.

[Master] (G) goblin, (B) Bullywug

[Carissa] And first time those pop-up I'll probably need to be told what they are...

[TMO] the way I did it was just by searching for (E) and pasting in the commands for each one

[TMO] (brb - time to put kids to bed)

[Master] I think that is how LIsa does it too

[Lisa] that's what I have been doing too

[Carissa] That's reasonable. At least it's mostly clusted, too.

[Carissa] *clustered

[Master] Mario did we lose you?

[Kel (MarioCS)] no, im here

[Master] good

[Master] someone has to take charge and the group out of here

[Master] bathroom break for me

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Lisa] how are the monitors?

[Kel (MarioCS)] huge

[Kel (MarioCS)] almost too big

[Kel (MarioCS)] but im puttin goff glasses as long as i can

[Lisa] lol

[Kel (MarioCS)] i truly do need them for work

[Kel (MarioCS)] but my laptop has a VGA port, so

[Kel (MarioCS)] and a cd rom

[Kel (MarioCS)] not even blu ray

[Kel (MarioCS)] you would think a billion dollar company would be up on tech

[Kel (MarioCS)] nope

[Carissa] Wishful thinking

[Kel (MarioCS)] im supposed to get on next year, but thats been said a few years now

[Carissa] I was glad when I finally got a job and they were for once keeping up with tech

[Carissa] Maybe you need to "accidentally" drop it ;P

[Kel (MarioCS)] done that

[Lisa] lol

[Kel (MarioCS)] the bezel is almost non existent

[Kel (MarioCS)] and the cd rom opens on its own, whenever it wants

[Carissa] Well damn.

[Lisa] it just wants attention

[Kel (MarioCS)] ive been SO tempted to just rip it off staright away

[Kel (MarioCS)] it now lives happily in a docking station, so i dont even have to open it anymore, unless i travel

[Kel (MarioCS)] going to PHX for three days, to deliver a half hour training

[Kel (MarioCS)] then to Irvine for a one day orientation

[Kel (MarioCS)] three days for that too

[Carissa] Three days to give just one training?

[Lisa] itwhy 3 days?

[Kel (MarioCS)] travel time is a bit part, a day there and a day back

[Kel (MarioCS)] and the trainnig is literally a half hour long

[Kel (MarioCS)] others are delivering the rest

[Carissa] Travel days make sense, but wow.

[Lisa] you should fly back as soon as you are done same day

[Kel (MarioCS)] living on the tip of the country kinda sux, when youre NOT interested in getting freq flyer miles

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Irvine is not that far from Lisa

[Lisa] a couple hours

[Kel (MarioCS)] ya, i could take the redeye out of LA and be home by 10 am

[Kel (MarioCS)] but SNA is literally ten minutes from the office

[TMO] back

[Master] and you cannot get her a night there?

[Master] geeze

[Kel (MarioCS)] who?

[Master] Lisa to have a nice night out

[Lisa] no it's the flying car to take me to the OC :)

[Master] dinner and a hotel

[Master] I am sure that Jo-ann will be very understandign that you take a woman out when you are in California

[Kel (MarioCS)] why would Lisa need a hotel? she lives there

[Lisa] oh that sounds as good as we can 'spend the night'

[Kel (MarioCS)] rofl

[Master] grins

[Kel (MarioCS)] ill let my wife know her borther condones this, brb

[Master] exactly

[Kel (MarioCS)] she just laughed at me...

[Kel (MarioCS)] sigh

[Master] it would actually be very funny,

[Master] that you two have dinner before Lisa and I do

[TMO] hey, when I first moved down here and my wife was still back in KC, I had a woman stay with me for a week. 0:)

[Master] after a decade or more

[Kel (MarioCS)] 0_0

[TMO] she was on a cross-country drive, and had stayed with us for a week in KC, then another week here in TX on her way back to CA

[Kel (MarioCS)] maybe you should train Disneyland

[Master] I am already on the books to do the next convention at Disney World

[Master] they asked me this week

[Kel (MarioCS)] how well did you know here, or were you running an AirBNB?

[TMO] I knew her from online, never met her before. Wife didn't know her at all, except for the week she stayed with us in KC.

[Master] They wanted me on the board of Special Library Association but I had to say no

[TMO] I'd known her for a while online

[TMO] my inlaws weren't *quite* as understanding. They were out of town, so she actually stayed at their house.

[Lisa] but all went well?

[TMO] small town, I suppose gossip might have started otherwise.

[Master] I want to make the reservations for everyone as soon as I can

[Master] Carissa

[Master] hint hint

[Master] waiting to add you to the list

[Lisa] And I think Michael is in Phoenix

[TMO] when is the scheduled weekend again?

[Carissa] I know. And won't know for a bit yet. Will let you know when I can!

[Master] June 1st through the 3rd

[Master] that is a Friday through Sunday

[Master] grins

[Master] and I fully understand

[Kel (MarioCS)] interesting, we have palyers in the same cities we have Starwood offices

[Kel (MarioCS)] coincidence? hmmm...

[Kel (MarioCS)] anyone in Altanta?

[Master] you can help us find new players Mario is what I am hearing

[TMO] you have offices in Lubbock, TX?

[Lisa] I'm actually about 80 miles north but close enough

[Kel (MarioCS)] lol, no, not sure if we even have a hotel there

[Lisa] lol

[TMO] what chain?

[Master] you are Marriot now you have hotels EVERYWHERE

[Kel (MarioCS)] now marriott, so 30 chains

[Kel (MarioCS)] Starwood had 11

[TMO] I think so, but not sure

[Kel (MarioCS)] probably we do

[Lisa] you have to have something there

[Carissa] Work lately has been throwing us in Marriotts. They really are everywhere.

[Master] and we will work with Mario for a place to stay if it is not the cheapest right around the corner

[Master] have a Hampton Inn (I think that is right) just over a mile from the house

[Master] and two bedrooms here

[Carissa] Nah, I need a Hilton. I have a billion points with them.

[Master] for TMO and Spring intiially

[Master] chuckles

[Master] Mario can tell you the closest one

[TMO] keep a close eye on me, keep me out of trouble

[Kel (MarioCS)] HIlton? couldnt name one

[Carissa] Holiday Inn, works, too. I have half a billion points with them.

[Master] want to make it easy with everyone

[Lisa] Hampton inn is jilton

[Master] our core players

[Lisa] cats driving me crazy

[Carissa] Ah, didn't know that. One more option, now :)

[Master] State Road Seven and Sawgrass express way is the major crossroards when you look online

[Lisa] they are pushing me off my own desk

[Carissa] Didn't Bob just say he wanted new players?

[Carissa] I feel like the cats are trying to join.

[Lisa] only as an encounter maybe


[Kel (MarioCS)] unless Shi charms them

[Carissa] HA! Wouldn't put it past her.

[Kel (MarioCS)] itll give the wolves something to play with

[Carissa] Ohh they can have adventures! Like Homeward Bound! But with wolves!

[Master] LOL

[Master] I did like the book

[Kel (MarioCS)] Act One: they set out. The wolves gobble them up. The End

[Lisa] LOL

[Carissa] I don't know...cats can be vicious. They might actually scare the wolves.

[Kel (MarioCS)] Take Two: Act One: they set out. The cats claw the wolves into submission. they all go their separate ways. The End

[TMO] a month or so ago the dog wanted out because he could seea small cat in our backyard. He chased it off. Later he wanted in, and was sitting there very nervously looking over his shoulder, at the cat sitting right there staring at him.

[Kel (MarioCS)] lol

[Carissa] LOL

[Kel (MarioCS)] sounds about right

[Carissa] My sister's dog refuses to go past the cat if she's blocking the way.

[Carissa] She wants to be best friends with the cat, but doesn't dare cross her path.

[Carissa] Not a small dog, either. We think she has some pit in her.

[Lisa] brb

[Master] so next week we start the race to the border of Cornelia?

[Master] or are you ready tonight?

[TMO] probably should have John and Michael

[Carissa] Either or.

[Carissa] They can at least fetch the elves from the inn, right?

[Master] and or anything else to do in Cornelia?

[TMO] athough, I suppose random encounters won't be an issue, it's the 6th day we'll want everyone with us

[Carissa] Reenact Hamlet?

[Master] chuckles

[Master] OUT damn spot

[Master] scrubs

[TMO] out of curiosity, Bob, did you get the idea for this setup from the Ottoman Empire, or just a coincidence?

[Master] from history yes

[Master] not specifically Ottoman

[Carissa] Something Roman?

[Master] that is a different thread of the story

[Master] for Greek areas that have a deeper older pool of worshipers

[Master] that go back to Hecate

[Master] and the older ancient history times

[TMO] so I'm game to do a random enc or two if y'all want. otherwise I don't know what else to do

[TMO] except stage a coup with no planning and no warning

[Master] no need for that

[Master] can just be at the edge of Cornelia if you all wish

[Master] the new Princess of Cornelia will not have any issues in the Kingdom

[Carissa] That's fine with me.

[Carissa] I'm still game for game.

[TMO] play on!

[Master] Mario?

[Kel (MarioCS)] sure

[Master] a quorum?

[Lisa] back

[Lisa] huh?

[TMO (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Ilero]] modified: Weapons - CHANGED: Chain -- Kind of Weapon: (Chain x9),

[Master] Time of Day: 07:05 AM. Day 19 Fin ___ tre, Spe {Early Fall} 19th, 1267 TGR.

[Master] and you wake up in the morning in the same inn that most of you stayed in

[Master] when Branwyn and Tiberius were swept away

[TMO] ilero is dropping all but one of the chains. He grabbed them because I thought they were unusual or rare items. I was wrong. He's keeping one because he's training his escape bonds skill.

[Carissa] Can't sell them in Cornelia

[Carissa] ?

[TMO] it's worth maybe a gold, I bet

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (and they smell like orc)

[Master] morning on the 19th at the Inn

[Carissa] Also thought they were special? Eh. Shi will still keep hers.

[Master] ready to leave Cornelia

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so day 2?)

[Master] day three after the wedding

[Master] boring marriage already

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Day three already?)

[TMO] ready for divorce court yet?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (branwyn has some questions for jennevive)

[Master] go for it

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Only some?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Jennevive, I appreciate all you did for Sam. You had quite the busy morning that day.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And yes, I apparently owe you more favors.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But how did you get the money from Phillipe?

Aunt Jennevive (Master) grins

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That was not our gold to give

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am glad to exchange favors

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and Sir Silver Balls will learn quickly to rebuild a treasury

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] when we return I expect he will have words with you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] with me?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] which is too bad that you are not the ambassador anymore

Branwyn (Lisa) sighs

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] to be able to punish me

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] although

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I would be happy to join you and Tiberius

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He just better have not sold my library to pay for expenses

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I will fry him for that

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am going to pretend you didn't just say that

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] that is too bad

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] And what of that ring you gave him, Jennevive?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do not like to share

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I did not recognize it.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] grins

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] which ring?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] The one I supposed would know what it means?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] The wooden one for Sam?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am very happy that you know what to do with that

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I would be, too, if I knew.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Although if it ever came to it, he'd have to find a way to get a bird to carry it...

[Kel (MarioCS)] two can do it, if they work together

[Kel (MarioCS)] in tandem

Marisu (TMO)] Even so, it perhaps will keep the Queen wary and on her toes.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] (lol at Mario I did get that )

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] True...

Marisu (TMO)] (on a line between them?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) Perhaps I'll send a message home and ask if they know it's meaning?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) It does not seem she will be forthcoming with it.

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) great idea, lets tie it to a bird, like its a ring...

Marisu (TMO)] [Marisu]] casts a spell against : Message: For (6*5) 30 rounds I can whisper to (6) 6 targets within (30+(6*10)) 90 feet without being overheard.

[Kel (MarioCS)] (E) Old habits die hard

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (E) And like I do all messages.

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) smiles

[Marisu]] (TMO) messages "Do we need to worry about the Queen scrying on us? If so, we might want to wait on discussing things.

Kel (MarioCS) nods

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Oh...

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) nods

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Er, wait. Now I remember what my Father once told me about such a ring. Ah, he'll know if he sees it.

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) bluffing

[Kel (MarioCS)] oh...THAT ring... right

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Although if he ties it to a wolf, it will mean so much more.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Like those daisy collars.

[Marisu]] (TMO) smiles and shakes her head, and gives Aunt Jennevieve an amused glance.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am always happy that there are so many possibilities

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Makes it all the more interesting.

Marisu (TMO)] (glad I kept that spell)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Glad Marisu is a on-top of it. Didn't even think of scrying)

Marisu (TMO)] (she knew Branwyn and Brand would need the carraige)

Marisu (TMO)] (she's sending Branadarus to the Mist to keep him hidden from scrying)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And now I feel dumb for not considering it as you point all that out...)

Marisu (TMO)] (:D I have a politician to play, after all. I try my best. .... aaaaand I have a paranoid streak.)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (lol)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no don't - we don't do a lot of divination)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Jennevive, would you mind doing a bit of casting on me before we get back home to Drillian?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Divination things.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (True. And this is always why there are other people - so someone catches on :) )

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] *Also

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I will be glad to do many things with you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I was told some strange things since we left home.

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do enjoy amusing you.

[Shurkural]] (TMO) covers her mouth to hide a smirk.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The Queen did intimate that we should have a safe journey home.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Keyword: should)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I hope that means no more dragons on the river.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think she was satisfied that we were well prepared for the travel

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) grins

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Does that mean we will have new sails?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I would not believe that we are safe until we are home in Drillian

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would venture to guess that between Penelope and Indigo, they wll have come up with something

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Queen Cinna's power reaches beyond her borders

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] but not so directly that I can see

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes. But she complains her power is not as far reaching as she would like.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I do worry that there will be those who are going to be following us

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] when things begin to happen with her sons and daughters

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I do believe the Queen has chosen a new husband

Shurkural (TMO)] (have the rest of us been notified of this yet?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] A new husband?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] (right now would be the time)

Shurkural (TMO)] (with Brand within hearing range?)

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] (as you leave Cornelia this morning on the road

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes, that is true, but she has been advised to not have another wedding quite so quicjly after her sons

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Was her husband at the feast?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Not that I saw

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Soon-to-be husband.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And is now really the time to ask questions when we were just warned not to?)

[Master] you are back into the rest of Terragaurd on the way to the river

[Master] a handful of more days to get there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think she envies us our wedding.

[Master] depending on just how fast you want to go

[Master] prior to this you were traveling at a normal easy pace

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She spoke of love being bery important to her

[Master] after leaving Cornelia you are free to choose what you wish

Shurkural (TMO)] (it depends on the topic - if the Queen doesn't know it, we shouldn't talk about it. Things she already knows should be safe(-ish))

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Except those were things Branwyn wasn't supposed to tell anyone...although I guess they don't know that)

Shurkural (TMO)] (nope, we don't yet)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] So why do you think we'll be followed?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It may have to do with me more than anything else. I have a tendency to bring danger

[Master] (who is that directed to?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Even without a political office

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (oops - probably Jenn)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Sorry - Jenn, originally, but if BRanwyn answers, also works)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (bran is going to give fuzzy answers if she can)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Well, you have an office now, yes?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am only concerned about us getting home

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] once we are safely under The Mist

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Is princess an office?

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] then we will only have to worry about a civil war

Branwyn (Lisa) grimaces

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] vampires and Therianthropes

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) shrugs, "I thought so, but I could be wrong."

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] and Bullyugs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hope that will be done by the time we get home

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Oh...lovely....

[Marisu]] (TMO) purses her lips.

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am certain that Branwyn can solve it all

Aunt Jennevive (Master) glances over

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] then LAUGHS

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] It is always interesting when you travel with Branwyn

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I am very happy to see what comes in the future

Marisu (TMO)] May I ask, Marquessa, Aunt, you know the Queen personally the best. May I ask your opinions on what her attitude might be, based on our best knowledge of the situation?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sure that you will be the one to solve it all

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Me? never

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] I rarely have answers I only have responses

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Marisu, I don't know for sure. It depends on where the war stands when we arrive and how much damage the lands have taken due to the war as to how she will feel.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will advocate that you had no knowledge and no possible part in something that occurred hundred of miles away.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And that you have dutifully served her in Dryads Lair.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She is not unreasonable

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] She married TOYBIN for goodness sakes

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] she has had two children with him!

Aunt Jennevive (Master) points to Branwyn

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] Tell me you ever thought when you met that knight that you thought he would ammount to anything

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not at all

Aunt Jennevive (Master) Looks at ILero

[Marisu]] (TMO) frowns sady, "She sent werewolves after my family."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But love can do funny things to one's rank in society

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] You were there in those caverns I believe?

Branwyn (Lisa) solemnly "She did"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And your family sent troops after hers

[Branwyn (Lisa)] War is not pretty

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] That's like an eye for an eye, but taking extra...

[Marisu]] (TMO) nods. "I understand that, but I can't help but notice how often that hasn't been done before in our varied civil wars."

[Aunt Jennevive (Master)] The queen does have the Vilmar estates on her side

Marisu (TMO)] But I'm biased. I'm worried about my sisters.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If she had managed to get the red dragon instead, would that change anything?

[Master] I will give Marisu and Branwyn an intition roll

[Master] there is part of it

Marisu (TMO)] [Marisu]]: INT check: (d20) [1d20=16] 16 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 17!!

Marisu (TMO)] [Marisu]]: INU check: (d20) [1d20=8] 8 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 16!!

Marisu (TMO)] (wrong stat the first time)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If she had managed to get the red dragon instead, would that change anything?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (test?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (yes)

[Master] A there was mention of trying to get Libellula Saturata involved again

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: INU check: (d20) [1d20=19] 19 - ROLL FAILED against 11!!

[Master] and B Vilmar has never been on the losing side of the previous three civil wars

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (didn't need to roll for that)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (would have needed that :) )

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Death is death and war is dangerous. I do hope your sisters excaped to safety.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This is why I tried so hard to stop that crusade.

Marisu (TMO)] I'm sorry. I didn't mean to divert the conversation from the Queen.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] People toss around wars without thinking of the people that actually fight in them and the the consequences

[Marisu]] (TMO) crosses her arms and huddles in her seat.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Seat? Carriage? I thought we were walking for some reason)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am sorry that we were not home at the start to try to stop an uprising before it became impossible to stop

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we have a wagon for people that want to ride)

[Marisu]] (TMO) nods weakly. "Me too..."

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Oooh right)

Marisu (TMO)] Although I might be dead now if we had.

Marisu (TMO)] I was my family's hope for the throne, after all.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There were ten families with hopes. Queen Catherine chose Wilamina. We were as shocked as anyone.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Who can predict royalty?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would like to know who gave the curse to Queen Catherine in the first place that started this mess.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She rushed her choice with her imminent death coming

Marisu (TMO)] Yes. If she hadn't fallen ill, I would have been older when the choice next came up.

[Marisu]] (TMO) shrugs.

[Kel (MarioCS)] good night all!

Marisu (TMO)] (night)

[Master] (night Mario)

MarioCS has left the game on Sat Nov 11 00:08:50 EST 2017

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Goodnight Mario)

[Master] I do wish I could say I had all this planed back in 2010

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I have nothing else to say with Mario gone)

[Carissa] I'd believe it.

[Master] but you all have done a great job of weaving in new threads

[Master] chuckles, Marisu was not even created until what? 2015?

[Carissa] Details. Maybe you can see into the future.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I have nothing else to say with Mario gone)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (test again - I have Internet but klooge keeps dropping on me)

[Master] I did have a plan for The Missus

[Carissa] (Still good. It just repeats)

[TMO] something like that. And her creation was specifically prompted by the coronation, after all.

[Master] back when the group first met her

[Master] but that was just hopes

[Master] alothough the Vilmar stuff is all true

[TMO] have we rp'd with a Vilmar?

[Lisa] ok - going to say goodnight before klooge drops again

[TMO] I don't remember the name specifically

[Master] the new ambassador

[TMO] night Lisa

[Master] and then when you were there for Blood Trail

[Carissa] Night, Lisa!

[Lisa] ok - going to say goodnight before klooge drops again

[Lisa] which it just did ...

Lisa has left the game on Sat Nov 11 00:12:58 EST 2017

[Master] we will pick up the first morning after you leave Cornelia

[Carissa] (And belated night to Mario since I missed that, oops)

[Master] have a great night everyone

[TMO] gnite

[Carissa] Night!
