[Wed Jun 8 20:10:11 2011] : (6) DM: GAME START
[Wed Jun 8 20:12:16 2011] : (6) DM: You're in Spider's lair. The shadar-kai witch lies dead on the richly carpetted floor.
[Wed Jun 8 20:12:38 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I think we should take her corpse to the guard captain"
[Wed Jun 8 20:12:47 2011] : (6) DM: On her desk are piles of papers in a strange, unfamilar language.
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:25 2011] : (10) Filica: "and we probably want to take all that litterature"
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:30 2011] : (6) DM: Another door leads to living quarters. A rummage through all her stuff turns up a good quanity of gold coins.
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:32 2011] : (10) Filica: "as it might help bring the cartel down"
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:40 2011] : (6) DM: ooc exact amount TBD.
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:55 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Yes, perhaps our wizard friend can help us with that"
[Wed Jun 8 20:13:55 2011] : (6) DM: Something on the desk goes *bing*.
[Wed Jun 8 20:14:18 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai turns at the sound
[Wed Jun 8 20:14:39 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc does anything go *google*?
[Wed Jun 8 20:14:41 2011] : (6) DM: The noise came from under a pile of papers.
[Wed Jun 8 20:14:56 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Be careful, Mordecai"
[Wed Jun 8 20:14:58 2011] : (11) Kava: "What was that?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:04 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc I'm sure things would rather go "yahoo"
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:07 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "That noise came from under the papers"
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:17 2011] : (11) Kava: "Better take a look then"
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:29 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Be my guest"
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:34 2011] : (10) Filica: Filica takes a step back from the desk
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:34 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava moves the papers aside
[Wed Jun 8 20:15:52 2011] : (6) Comminicator Crystal: *bing*
[Wed Jun 8 20:16:05 2011] : (11) Kava: "Huh?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:16:22 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava takes a good look at the crystal
[Wed Jun 8 20:16:29 2011] : (11) Kava: "More crystals"
[Wed Jun 8 20:16:32 2011] : (6) Comminicator Crystal: The black rectangular crystal goes bing again.
[Wed Jun 8 20:17:09 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I dont think we've seen a black one, and certainly not one that makes a noise"
[Wed Jun 8 20:17:14 2011] : (6) Comminicator Crystal: This crystal is about 12x6x1 cm in size.
[Wed Jun 8 20:17:47 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Why o you suppose it's making that noise?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:17:49 2011] : (11) Kava: "Looks like a classy paper weight"
[Wed Jun 8 20:17:59 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "That goes *bing*"
[Wed Jun 8 20:18:03 2011] : (11) Kava: "I have no idea"
[Wed Jun 8 20:18:44 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Should we touch it?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:11 2011] : (11) Kava: "Why not?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:29 2011] : (10) Filica: "I'm not touching it"
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:35 2011] : (9) Donessh: "We dont know what will happen if we do"
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:40 2011] : (10) Filica: "I don't like things taht go bing"
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:42 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava puts a finger on a corner, touching the crystal lightly
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:47 2011] : (10) Filica: "Things should not be going "bing""
[Wed Jun 8 20:19:47 2011] : (9) Donessh: "It could be trapped"
[Wed Jun 8 20:20:09 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc Better than knights going Ni
[Wed Jun 8 20:20:10 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai steps back
[Wed Jun 8 20:20:18 2011] : (6) DM: The face of the crystal illuminates and an image appears.
[Wed Jun 8 20:20:32 2011] : (11) Kava: "Will you look at that"
[Wed Jun 8 20:20:49 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava tries to make sense out of it
[Wed Jun 8 20:21:55 2011] : (6) DM: The image is a head and shoulders of someone or something wearing a hood.
[Wed Jun 8 20:22:06 2011] : (6) DM: You cannot see the face under the hood.
[Wed Jun 8 20:22:30 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava steps back as well
[Wed Jun 8 20:22:49 2011] : (6) Hooded Figure: "Spider? Your report is overdue. What's your status?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:22:57 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc I'm fairly certain a dragonborn is pretty easily distinguished from a Shadar-Kai
[Wed Jun 8 20:23:06 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc LOL
[Wed Jun 8 20:23:22 2011] : (11) Kava: "Spider can't speak to you right now"
[Wed Jun 8 20:23:53 2011] : (10) Filica: Filica whispers: Maybe they can't see you?
[Wed Jun 8 20:24:24 2011] : (6) Hooded Figure: The voice is soft and sound like it could be a man.
[Wed Jun 8 20:24:50 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava whispers back: "I don't want to show myself if at all possible"
[Wed Jun 8 20:25:08 2011] : (6) Hooded Man: The man looks up and appears to notice you. He turns to the side and says: "Project compromised. Shut it down."
[Wed Jun 8 20:25:29 2011] : (6) DM: The image goes dark.
[Wed Jun 8 20:25:55 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Project huh?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:03 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Interesting"
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:04 2011] : (6) DM: ooc all the best inter-planar communication devices come with front facing cameras for video calling.
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:09 2011] : (11) Kava: "Compromised? What does that mean?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:09 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Perhaps we should keep a hold of this thing?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:38 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc and there's always a remote switch that allows the evil emperor to start the camera without you knowing
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:41 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc and track your location
[Wed Jun 8 20:26:51 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc and... but I'm driftin'
[Wed Jun 8 20:28:02 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Definately Mordecai"
[Wed Jun 8 20:28:07 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc And an auto destruct sequence
[Wed Jun 8 20:28:40 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Do you think Jack might know anything about it?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:29:11 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Well, let's go and see"
[Wed Jun 8 20:29:48 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Do you think we should try and clear out the other Cartel from the base before we head back put?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:29:52 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc out
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:16 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Back down one of the other tunnels"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:23 2011] : (10) Filica: "well, let me venture a thought"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:30 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I think the head has been cut from this beast, but its probably wirth checking the rest of the place"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:33 2011] : (10) Filica: "it seems Spider, which we had errr trouble taking down"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:40 2011] : (10) Filica: "was just an underboss"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:52 2011] : (10) Filica: "so, if I may, before we go and try and take the cartel"
[Wed Jun 8 20:30:52 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Indeed Fil"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:02 2011] : (10) Filica: "I'd like to rest, stock up on supplies, what do I know"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:05 2011] : (10) Filica: "prepare"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:10 2011] : (11) Kava: "But if the project will be shut down, this might be the last we hear of The Cartel"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:31 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Let's ensure all the lower thugs are also shut down first"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:38 2011] : (10) Filica: "the voice said the project is compromised"
[Wed Jun 8 20:31:49 2011] : (10) Filica: "and I think the shut down applied to this strange device"
[Wed Jun 8 20:32:00 2011] : (11) Kava: "I'm with you, Mordecai"
[Wed Jun 8 20:32:44 2011] : (6) DM: Arcana or History checks.
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:05 2011] : (8) Mordecai: History: [1d20(8) + 5] = 13
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:14 2011] : (11) Kava: Arcana: [1d20(20) + 6] = 26
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:29 2011] : (11) Kava: History: [1d20(6) + 6] = 12
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:35 2011] : (9) Donessh: History: [1d20(15) + 4] = 19
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:44 2011] : (9) Donessh: Arcana: [1d20(8) + 2] = 10
[Wed Jun 8 20:33:58 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava thinks hard about the device and what she might have heard about things like that
[Wed Jun 8 20:34:31 2011] : (10) Filica: Arcana: [1d20(16) + 0 + 1] = 17
[Wed Jun 8 20:34:52 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc wow, I don't even _have_ history
[Wed Jun 8 20:36:57 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc what's the ability?
[Wed Jun 8 20:37:01 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc brb
[Wed Jun 8 20:37:27 2011] : (6) DM: ooc history is intelligence
[Wed Jun 8 20:37:31 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc Int
[Wed Jun 8 20:38:46 2011] : (11) Kava: "One thing I do know: shadar kai always have ulterior motives, they don't steal for profit, but they have 'higher' purposes. And where shadar kai are, people get hurt"
[Wed Jun 8 20:39:24 2011] : (10) Filica: "I see"
[Wed Jun 8 20:40:16 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc back
[Wed Jun 8 20:41:07 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "The motives of Shadar-Kai, and those of myself and Amaunator are diametrically opposed"
[Wed Jun 8 20:41:21 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I would like to pursue this to the end"
[Wed Jun 8 20:41:34 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc brb
[Wed Jun 8 20:41:39 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I stand with you brother"
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:06 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai nods at Donessh
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:08 2011] : (11) Kava: "I don't see what other action we can take"
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:16 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava smiles
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:25 2011] : (11) Kava: "Together till the end"
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:30 2011] : (6) DM: ooc plot hook bitten. Now to reel you in ;)
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:54 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I hope whomever was on the other end didn't get a look at us"
[Wed Jun 8 20:42:57 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc As ig we ever struggle :-P
[Wed Jun 8 20:43:22 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc "right thats that sorted. Who's for the pub"
[Wed Jun 8 20:43:34 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc ignoring the DMs plot hooks is churlish
[Wed Jun 8 20:44:09 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "So, shall we ensure that this warren is empty of rabbits?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:44:35 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc right, its not as if we were just going to teleport ourselves halfway around the world and ruin everyt... oh hang on
[Wed Jun 8 20:44:51 2011] : (9) Donessh: "An excellent idea"
[Wed Jun 8 20:45:49 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc LOL
[Wed Jun 8 20:46:08 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc We'd never do that if we knew the DM had more in store for us than just a TPK ;-)
[Wed Jun 8 20:46:35 2011] : (11) Kava: "Better dig them all out right away"
[Wed Jun 8 20:46:39 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc back; sorry, crying concert :)
[Wed Jun 8 20:47:04 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc A duet or a solo?
[Wed Jun 8 20:47:11 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc that was a choice between handing over loot well earned or killing people who we shouldn't... I think we made a valid choice ;-)
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:40 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc a duet, I silenced one of the instruments, Arne is taking care of the other one
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:40 2011] : (10) Filica: "good to know that there is more to this though"
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:40 2011] : (10) Filica: "I guess we can take care of the remaining ones indeed"
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:40 2011] : (10) Filica: "Maybe we can extract info from others?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:42 2011] : (9) Donessh: Donessh gathers up everything he can see and carry that looks valuable or interesting
[Wed Jun 8 20:48:43 2011] : (10) Filica: "or have we already taken care of those who knew anything?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:49:17 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Lets go find out"
[Wed Jun 8 20:49:30 2011] : (6) DM: As you sweep through the rest of the hideout you find the place deserted. Word of the leadership downfall has spread quickly and it seems everyone has left.
[Wed Jun 8 20:49:31 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Let's do a quick search for anything hidden in here before we leave"
[Wed Jun 8 20:49:51 2011] : (10) Filica: "Yes, that makes sense"
[Wed Jun 8 20:49:57 2011] : (10) Filica: "Should we take this crystal?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:50:00 2011] : (10) Filica: "I guess."
[Wed Jun 8 20:50:01 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Perception: [1d20(7) + 5] = 12
[Wed Jun 8 20:50:15 2011] : (10) Filica: Filica looks at the thing with disgust and a little bit of fear
[Wed Jun 8 20:50:21 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Let's put it in a sack and wrap it well"
[Wed Jun 8 20:50:57 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava wraps the crystal up in some cloth and ties the bundle with string before putting it in her backpack
[Wed Jun 8 20:52:06 2011] : (6) DM: You collect up the gold and the papers with the strange writing before looking through the rest of the base.
[Wed Jun 8 20:52:11 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Are we taking the corpse?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:53:16 2011] : (11) Kava: "To do what with?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:53:57 2011] : (11) Kava: "The town will know of Spider's demise soon enough, without us needing a trophy corpse to prove it"
[Wed Jun 8 20:54:30 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc how much gold?
[Wed Jun 8 20:54:43 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "It does good sometimes to show that evil does nto prosper"
[Wed Jun 8 20:54:48 2011] : (6) DM: ooc TBD
[Wed Jun 8 20:54:55 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc not
[Wed Jun 8 20:56:03 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "It may be worth showing to the guard of whom, I have little doubt, some were in the in the pay of he cartel"
[Wed Jun 8 20:56:31 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Outfits like the cartel cannot operate without the complicity of the corrupt"
[Wed Jun 8 20:56:49 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I would like to show the corrupt that they chose poorly"
[Wed Jun 8 20:57:37 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai hefts the body onto his shoulder
[Wed Jun 8 20:57:41 2011] : (11) Kava: "And what it the powers that be decide that me murdered her, when we log her corpse around?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:58:21 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "It's not a scenario I had even considered"
[Wed Jun 8 20:58:23 2011] : (11) Kava: "The corrupt will find out soon enough and she will probably will get a decent burial as well"
[Wed Jun 8 20:58:51 2011] : (10) Filica: "I'm with Mordecai on that one"
[Wed Jun 8 20:58:57 2011] : (10) Filica: "Not so much for the moral thing"
[Wed Jun 8 20:58:59 2011] : (9) Donessh: "How about we place the corpse in the town square during the night?"
[Wed Jun 8 20:59:08 2011] : (10) Filica: "but let's say, if we got Spider, we're probably to be feared"
[Wed Jun 8 20:59:33 2011] : (10) Filica: "I still have to get a full night of sleep without thugs brandishing a knife on my thorat as a wake up call"
[Wed Jun 8 20:59:48 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Yes, there's that Fil"
[Wed Jun 8 21:00:34 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Donessh, I can't say I like the idea of sneaking, but as Kava points out, if the corruption goes high enough we could be arrested"
[Wed Jun 8 21:00:51 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Perhaps that is the best solution"
[Wed Jun 8 21:01:27 2011] : (9) Donessh: "People know of Spiders fate, without any risk to us. I have no need of adoration from Spiders enemies"
[Wed Jun 8 21:02:28 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I was referring to the thought of undisturbed sleep rather then causing fear in our enemies"
[Wed Jun 8 21:02:40 2011] : (11) Kava: "I'd rather we officially don't know anything about her death. I don't mind everybody else knowing we did it though"
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:18 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai shrugs
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:32 2011] : (10) Filica: "Whatever"
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:33 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Who likes Donessh's idea?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:41 2011] : (10) Filica: "I don't mind"
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:43 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai raises a hand
[Wed Jun 8 21:03:48 2011] : (9) Donessh: Raises hand
[Wed Jun 8 21:04:13 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "And who wants to leave the body here?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:04:34 2011] : (11) Kava: "I'm with Donessh"
[Wed Jun 8 21:05:48 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "OK, let's do it then"
[Wed Jun 8 21:07:09 2011] : (9) Donessh: oco what time is it DM?
[Wed Jun 8 21:07:30 2011] : (6) DM: Ok, you wrap Spider's corpse in a rug and carry it out. While the rest of you are getting a good nights sleep at the inn, Donnesh is creeping about like a backwards grave-robber
[Wed Jun 8 21:07:46 2011] : (6) DM: The following morning you meet up with Captain Jack at the Inn.
[Wed Jun 8 21:07:57 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc hey, I was going to volunteer Al to do that
[Wed Jun 8 21:08:34 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc he's a halfling
[Wed Jun 8 21:08:51 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc So a great idea
[Wed Jun 8 21:09:03 2011] : (6) Jack: "Excellent work! The Cartel is well and truely dismantled. No more will they be able to interfere with my legitimate business interested. And they won't be trying to kill you either."
[Wed Jun 8 21:09:06 2011] : (9) Donessh: ooc they're sturdy!
[Wed Jun 8 21:09:48 2011] : (6) Jack: "Those two lieutenants we had holed up near the docks just disappeared somewhere. They won't be back anytime soon I reckon."
[Wed Jun 8 21:10:29 2011] : (11) Kava: "Let's hope The Cartel is well and truly dead"
[Wed Jun 8 21:10:31 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "It seems she was not the boss"
[Wed Jun 8 21:10:44 2011] : (6) Jack: "Oh?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:10:59 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "There was someone above her who tried to contact her using some strange crystal"
[Wed Jun 8 21:11:10 2011] : (9) Donessh: Donessh hands Jack the crystal
[Wed Jun 8 21:11:24 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "They cut the conversation as soon as they realised she was not present"
[Wed Jun 8 21:11:26 2011] : (6) Jack: "Er." Jack looks it over.
[Wed Jun 8 21:11:50 2011] : (6) Jack: "It's not something I've seen before. Best find yourself a wizard it look it over."
[Wed Jun 8 21:11:51 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Mean anything to you?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:12:05 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc brb
[Wed Jun 8 21:12:13 2011] : (9) Donessh: "We shall."
[Wed Jun 8 21:13:54 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc back
[Wed Jun 8 21:14:35 2011] : (6) Jack: "I must prepare Waveskimmer.to sail this afternoon. So I shall leave you to your adventuring."
[Wed Jun 8 21:14:41 2011] : (6) Jack: "Unless..."
[Wed Jun 8 21:14:56 2011] : (11) Kava: "Have a good life, Jack, adn stay honest"
[Wed Jun 8 21:14:59 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Unless?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:15:06 2011] : (6) Jack: "Fancy joining my crew? I'm sure I could find a use for your skills."
[Wed Jun 8 21:15:47 2011] : (6) Jack: "And there's plenty of gold to be had in, ah, tax-efficient imports and exports."
[Wed Jun 8 21:16:06 2011] : (10) Filica: "Heh"
[Wed Jun 8 21:16:30 2011] : (10) Filica: "Well, I like the good old earth under my feet"
[Wed Jun 8 21:16:42 2011] : (10) Filica: "So, no, thanks"
[Wed Jun 8 21:17:35 2011] : (6) Jack: "Anyone else interested?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:17:37 2011] : (11) Kava: "Why do you want us to join you?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:18:10 2011] : (11) Kava: Insight: [1d20(16) + 1] = 17
[Wed Jun 8 21:18:11 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Not for me thanks. I must continue down this road now I have begun to tread it."
[Wed Jun 8 21:18:18 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I feel it is my destiny"
[Wed Jun 8 21:18:41 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I dont think I'm cut out out for a life at sea"
[Wed Jun 8 21:19:01 2011] : (6) Jack: (to Kava) "There are pirates, corrupt guards, other criminal gangs. All of which get in the way of my entirely legal business."
[Wed Jun 8 21:19:08 2011] : (11) Kava: "We've started this, so I want to finish"
[Wed Jun 8 21:20:16 2011] : (6) Jack: "Very well. Now, I really must get Waveskimmer ready to sail. It's been interesting working with you. Farewell."
[Wed Jun 8 21:20:23 2011] : (6) DM: Jack leaves.
[Wed Jun 8 21:20:34 2011] : (11) Kava: "Godbye"
[Wed Jun 8 21:20:45 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Amaunator go with you"
[Wed Jun 8 21:21:15 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Looks we need to find someone who can tell us what this crystal is. Any ideas?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:21:53 2011] : (11) Kava: "Well, what wizards do we know?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:08 2011] : (6) DM: ooc the quest journal says "Talk to Miranda about the crystal and papers."
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:09 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "our friend in the tower"
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:23 2011] : (11) Kava: ooc LOL@DM
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:26 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "miranda"
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:45 2011] : (11) Kava: "A wizard that we've done a favour for, perfect!"
[Wed Jun 8 21:22:47 2011] : (9) Donessh: "An excellent idea"
[Wed Jun 8 21:23:06 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc I mentioned it last week, and the DM reminded us of her name (which I immediately forgot again)
[Wed Jun 8 21:24:20 2011] : (6) DM: You head over to the tower where Miranda greats you warmly.
[Wed Jun 8 21:24:59 2011] : (6) DM: She leads you to the library with its comfortable chairs and haphazard piles of books and tomes.
[Wed Jun 8 21:25:02 2011] : (8) Mordecai: Mordecai nods
[Wed Jun 8 21:25:13 2011] : (6) DM: "What brings you here this morning?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:25:18 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I trust you are well?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:25:36 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "We have obtained some cryptic writings"
[Wed Jun 8 21:25:46 2011] : (6) Miranda: "Busy investigating those crystals. Facinating work."
[Wed Jun 8 21:26:11 2011] : (11) Kava: "And we found another crystal, but something different this time"
[Wed Jun 8 21:26:13 2011] : (6) Miranda: That seems to interest her. "Oh? May I see them?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:26:25 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Shall we just say that the cartel will no longer be needing any of them?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:26:47 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Then you can decide if you wish to help us, and not be involved if you do not"
[Wed Jun 8 21:27:33 2011] : (6) Miranda: ooc handing the items over?
[Wed Jun 8 21:27:40 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I feel it would be wrong of us not to pre-warn you"
[Wed Jun 8 21:27:57 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc wait for her reaction to my words
[Wed Jun 8 21:28:24 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I've seen my fair share of trouble and danger in the past. Let me look at the items and then I'll decide."
[Wed Jun 8 21:28:36 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "excellent"
[Wed Jun 8 21:28:37 2011] : (11) Kava: Kava gets the package with the crystal out
[Wed Jun 8 21:28:38 2011] : (9) Donessh: Donessh hands over what he has
[Wed Jun 8 21:28:50 2011] : (10) Filica: "We could sure use your experience"
[Wed Jun 8 21:29:32 2011] : (6) Miranda: Miranda looks over some of the papers. "These are in the shadar-kai script but the words mean nothing to me. It must be some sort of code."
[Wed Jun 8 21:30:11 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc what language is shadar-kai script?
[Wed Jun 8 21:30:43 2011] : (6) Miranda: "Ah ha!" she says with delight as she looks at the crystal. "I've read about these but I've never seen one before. An inter-planar communication crystal."
[Wed Jun 8 21:30:46 2011] : (10) Filica: ooc brb
[Wed Jun 8 21:31:01 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc I speak deep-speech and primordial
[Wed Jun 8 21:31:24 2011] : (6) Miranda: ooc shadar-kai speak common
[Wed Jun 8 21:31:42 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc neither of which seem to have a simple 3e analogue for me to easily guess ;-)
[Wed Jun 8 21:31:54 2011] : (9) Donessh: "What do you know about them?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:32:06 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Inter-planar?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:32:15 2011] : (6) Miranda: "These two items suggest some sort of shadar-kai plot which is of concern."
[Wed Jun 8 21:32:52 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I would guess that the shadar-kai were using it to communicate from their home in the shadow plane with their agents here."
[Wed Jun 8 21:33:12 2011] : (11) Kava: "Hmm sounds shady"
[Wed Jun 8 21:33:17 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Hmm, this does not bode well"
[Wed Jun 8 21:34:45 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I think I shall put my current research on hold and look at deciphering these papers. Perhaps there's a lead to follow in them."
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:11 2011] : (10) Filica: "how long do you think thismight take you?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:15 2011] : (9) Donessh: "We would appreciate that"
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:24 2011] : (11) Kava: "Yes, please"
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:28 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Indeed"
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:32 2011] : (6) Miranda: "There is also a ritual that can be performed to trace the location of the opposite crystal."
[Wed Jun 8 21:35:56 2011] : (6) Miranda: Miranda looks over some of the papers again. "It could take weeks."
[Wed Jun 8 21:36:25 2011] : (9) Donessh: "Now, THAT we would be interested in"
[Wed Jun 8 21:36:29 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc hmm, rituals - that last bit of 4e - the undiscovered country
[Wed Jun 8 21:37:34 2011] : (6) Miranda: "These comms crystals are made in linked pairs and it is possible to locate the other end but I do not have all the necessary equiment and materials."
[Wed Jun 8 21:37:37 2011] : (8) Mordecai: ooc I don't even have either of my current rituals in my tree
[Wed Jun 8 21:37:55 2011] : (11) Kava: "Tell us what you need"
[Wed Jun 8 21:38:09 2011] : (10) Filica: "If we can get it, we shall"
[Wed Jun 8 21:38:10 2011] : (6) Miranda: "Perhaps you could locate these items while I crack these coded papers?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:38:21 2011] : (10) Filica: "Although, frankly... going to "another plane"?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:39:35 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Perhaps we should also seek knowledge from my elders in the temple?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:39:39 2011] : (6) Miranda: "We can consider what actions are necessary once we have as much information as possible."
[Wed Jun 8 21:40:01 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "I would like to know as much about this plane as possible"
[Wed Jun 8 21:40:35 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I have some books if you would like to borrow them."
[Wed Jun 8 21:40:41 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "If you list the items, and if possible a location, we'll get right on it"
[Wed Jun 8 21:41:49 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I shall prepare a list and send it to you as soon as possible."
[Wed Jun 8 21:42:10 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "In the mean time, the books will be useful, I'm sure"
[Wed Jun 8 21:42:22 2011] : (6) Miranda: "I also think I should keep this comms crystal. Without proper warding it may be used to spy or listen to what you say."
[Wed Jun 8 21:43:10 2011] : (9) Donessh: "A good idea. We had not thought of that"
[Wed Jun 8 21:43:37 2011] : (6) Miranda: Miranda looks through her book collection and selects a volume which she hands to Mordecai. This is a useful primer on the shadow plane.
[Wed Jun 8 21:44:33 2011] : (6) Miranda: "Now I'd best get that list ready for you. Unless you have other questions?"
[Wed Jun 8 21:44:39 2011] : (11) Kava: "Thank you, Miranda"
[Wed Jun 8 21:46:02 2011] : (8) Mordecai: "Not from me"
[Wed Jun 8 21:46:21 2011] : (10) Filica: "Well, I have a bout a million questions, but I guess I'll keep them for another lifetimeé"
[Wed Jun 8 21:46:47 2011] : (9) Donessh: "I think the list is the more pressing matter"
[Wed Jun 8 21:47:27 2011] : (6) DM: GAME END
