Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: To Heal Death


Haunted by the past? The little girl thinks to herself, Seems that way... but how do you heal that? You can't... at least I can't.

She flies over towards the stable. It appeared the stranger is a very interesting person, with an unknown history. However, he would not be able to see the resolution if he chose a premature end. The girl draws out her silver scimitar from her enchanted bag. With a few mystical words, she sends it to hover into the air, and into view. Remember, you aren't alone. The girl thinks as she sends it down towards the stable door, angling itself to shine direct moonlight upon the stranger and catch his eye.

Topic: Silent Hill: Eternal Decay
Subject: Cannot Wait


Cindi looks over at Hank, and voices what is likely the biggest concern of the group, "I... don't think it will just go away, at least not just with us sitting around and not doing anything."

Cindi winces, and states her own opinion, "Feel free to correct me, but I think that the darkness came because I played my flute. That's the only thing that really happened before it came at anyrate that I know of, and it came so quickly too."

"My heart tells me this darkness won't go away until we make it. I don't know where to start to try to do that, but in any case, I cannot wait. Like I said, I'm not pushing you to come along with me as it's a personal thing, but I have to go. I must." Cindi's eyes are unfocused, almost haunted, as she says this.

Subject: Shop of the Unknown


Aqinarr City
Merchant's District - Side Alley
Three and Three Quarter Hours before Twilight


As Willow walks up to the shop, the conversation can be heard between the elderly merchant and the young customer.

"Oh wow, really?" The girl asks.

The man nods with a smile, "Yes, quite so. These new bracelets do have unique powers, but..."

Willow can see that even though the girl's eyes are momentarily caught by the bracelets the man holds up, she always looks back to the wooden box.

The man smiles, "You are still intent on getting these aren't you?"

The girl nods enthusiastically, "Yeah! I've been saving for almost two years now! I'm sure I'll get enough soon."

The man shakes his head, "Are you really sure you want these?" Then noticing Willow, the man straightens to look up at her, "Yes? Can I help you?"

"Could you tell me what is in that box?" Willow asks of the man.

However, before the man can answer, the little girl speaks up, "It holds four identical decks of cards, along with eight unique ones. Each deck has thirty four cards and each card is hand painted with a pretty picture. Once every week, you can use the deck to predict the future, but doing so requires another person."

The girl strains her neck, looking up at Willow, and smiles sheepishly, "Hehehe, I've kind of memorized how to use those cards."

The man nods, almost sadly, "Yes, this young one is quite keen on getting it."

As Willow inspects the one bracelet, the man follows her gaze, "Ah, you have a warrior's taste."

He picks up and offers the bracelet forward for Willow to see more clearly. Along the top and bottom of the band, the silver is folded in along itself, forming an intricate pattern of almost a woven silk rope along its edge. Along the back of the band, opposite the engraved design, is inscribed a single word in runelike script.

FRPCPEUAV


The man explains the bracelet's power, "Once each day, you can call upon this item's power, and it will grant you a small boon. It isn't very much, granted, since it is a lesser magic, but it is far better than nothing. It will slightly improve one's accuracy, and also the strength with which one wields a blade."

"If you are interested in purchasing it, its price is 360gp." The man says.

Linnix heart races. Quiet. It is far too quiet!

Panic sets in, grasping her heart and making it pulse even faster. In the silence of the night, her heartbeat drowns out everything else. Linnix nearly bolts, only not doing so because she can think coherently enough to know that it'd be worse out of the light.

There they are. The hunters... Their growls nearly strum all of Linnix's tightened nerves. They all look somewhere behind where Linnix is looking. Dare she look? Too late.

A werewolf, perhaps three. These are clearly the leaders of this pack. Linnix fervently wishes she was not there.

“You have intruded upon our hunting grounds, and attacked my kin without provocation."

Linnix twitches. What?!

Incredulously she shouts, "Just what have you been eating? Toadstools that look like fairy heads? Or do you only think they look that way because your red eyes can't see straight? Sure, running around growling and snarling like... I don't know... like you're trying to woo a she-wolf isn't provocation at all. No of course not, how silly of us to mistake that as you threatening us."

Indignation in her eyes, Linnix crams a silver bolt in her crossbow and fires it, aiming at the leader's mouth, "Eat this."

Cindi nods thankfully towards Delilah, "Thank you."

Cindi then addresses the group, "I'm not pushing us to go, and if you feel we should go elsewhere, that's fine."

Immediately after saying these words, Cindi feels doubt gnawing at her mind. What if Meera is alright? How long would she stay alright? Cindi shivers again, her serene appearance shattered by the motion. She can't just forget about Meera!

"I'm sorry," Cindi murmurs, "I can't concentrate."

Cindi takes in a deep breath, "I'm sorry... I said I wasn't going to push us to go, but I have to go. I just can't push Meera out of my mind."

Cindi bites her lip, "It would undoubtedly be safer if we went together, but this is something that I have to do, and I don't think you should just be dragged along because of me..."

One was down, the other too soon to fall. Satisfied, Galen decides to sit this battle out, but then he notices that Jeremy is devoid of the torch he had received earlier, and Ben's had been quenched. Jeremy must've dropped his Galen notes and reasons, We'll need more than one torch for sure.

Galen exits the little room, notes the fallen and quickly burning out torch, and picks it up.

Ita is about to answer Ignis, when suddenly Feni growls, and Ita's ears twitch.

"There's another one!" Ita shouts, jumping to her feet.

Dashing through the trees, another Linsemptus Scout runs forward, to punch Sable in the back, however Sable quickly avoids the blow by blocking it with his own, better technique.

Feni is the first to react, moving to the side to allow Ita a clearer shot. The Linsemptus Scout brings back its arm, forming another serrated blade. Wildly, it swings it down, just barely missing Sable as he avoids the blow.

((New combat... everyone except Ita and Feni are currently sitting... anyway, do your best!))

“Did you have any luck contacting Master Arkanna?”

Ninkanna shakes her head, "Unfortunately not, it doesn't even seem like her comlink is even on."

“Well,” Si-Di began, “We should make our way to the Administrator’s place if we are to dine with him this evening. Maybe he has news for us.” Her tone sounded as if she wasn’t confident that Namor could provide any help with their problems.

“Kavtan,” she asked, “I am sure you know where we can find the Administrator.. please lead on.”

Ninkanna nods, ready to follow the two others to the shared destination.

The toys with batteries made fun of and neglected all those without, so they slowly vanished from our eyes... however, just because they are vanishing doesn't mean they aren't still there and are planning a large scale revolt againt the toys with batteries that will ultimitely be the cause of a nuclear war...

wow... I can't believe how far out I went with that.

anyway... why does the d20 dice, the cause of all glory and misfortune to characters of D&D, often choose inappropriate times to give misfortune?

Topic: Silent Hill: Eternal Decay
Subject: You too?


"I know this place," she whispered, staring through the dark at nothing, the thousand yard stare of those who have survived terrible things. "I... I grew up here. Over...Over by the florist. My father was a gravedigger. But I don't... that's all I have."

Cindi looks at Hank sharply, "I live here too... my flat is over by Jack's Inn."

Cindi's voice trails off, "I wonder what happened to Meera... I hope she's OK."

Cindi begins to fidget slightly. Half of her wanted to run over to her apartment and see if Meera is alright. To hold the kitten fondly. Yet, another part of her can't help but wonder if Meera is even alive now, and doesn't want to split up the group.

Cindi turns to the assembled group, her foxlike face distracted, not really paying attention, "I'm sorry, I'm just worried about my cat. I know she... might not be alive... but..."

Cindi bites her lip. It probably seems a bit irrational to the others, but how is she supposed to help it? Meera could be alive, and the kitten would be very comforting. In a way... Cindi cares for Meera almost as though Meera is her daughter. Cindi shivers. She is uncertain what do to.

Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Shaken


The girl follows the chit-chat, and although the voices are muffled by the window pane, she can still hear quite well. Oooh, this is exciting. Mysteries, mistakes... she definitely picked the right time to visit this world.

Then, suddenly, her heart goes cold and she nearly falls out of the air. How could that she have been seen? That just wasn't possible by normal means.

This is dangerous. Half of her wanted to world-shift right then and there. There would be no doubt many creatures and people would try to take advantage of her abilities if she were to be caught. Panicking, the girl flies quickly from the house.

I should just finish that tiara, and wander to a different world; I've been here far too long. She thinks. Or maybe the other way around... I can always make jewellery at my house...

However, her curiousity wouldn't let it go. This world just could possibly have that one flower somewhere... It is said that the flower enhances healing capabilities, which would be a wonderful thing to have.

Ohhh, decisions, decisions... the girl stops and hovers in the air. She had gone very far, and was over the road where the fight earlier that day had taken place. The little sylph considers it. Even if the man saw her, and knew what she was, the man seemed to be one to keep to their own business. Well, if things go badly, I can always fly away and world-shift. The girl reasons between her fear and curiousity, Either way, I won't know how this plays out until they do play out, and I've taken risks before.

Reaching a compromise, although she is still feeling very insecure, the girl slowly heads back to the house. She is so nervous that she doesn't even try sleeping. Thankfully, she doesn't need to sleep.

Beyond the two heads in the way, Galen sees further adversaries. This time, he wouldn't let people get in the way. Steeling himself, Galen proceeds to drop his book, then rush forward. Running past Ian and Ben, Galen goes into the room, stepping to the left so as to give Ben a free way.

Galen's aura flickers like a flame caught in a gentle breeze, and bits of the aura begin to fall and flow around him. These are shaped like flower petals, cherry blossom petals to be exact. Galen holds forth his vacant hand, and the petals land within its cupped shape. His aura has now vanished, now all its remaining essence held in his hand. Raising it to his lips, Galen blows gently, sending the petals streaming forward towards the closest skeleton as though they were caught in a hurricane wind.

Ninkanna opens her eyes, feeling very refreshed. Just in time too, for she gets to see the sun dipping over the horizon.

It's so pretty. She thinks.

Well, it was about time to go, and with any luck, Master Arkanna would just be there at the arranged time. If she wasn't... well, Ninkanna will consider that if that's the case.

Ninkanna exits her starfighter's cockpit, pats the astromech droid fondly, and goes to find Si-Di before wandering over to the designated destination; it would do no good if they mistook Ninkanna as the negotiations Jedi!

"How can it exist?" Galen murmurs, and closes his eyes.

"Because it can. That's all there is to it." Galen murmurs, "The rules of this world and the rules of the world we come from are different, here there is so much more that is possible, or perhaps it is just more accessable."

"What is possible and what isn't possible is not something that can be defined. People can try to define it, giving it rules and noting patterns in an otherwise spontaneous world, but this is just one of the many systems within reality. There is what is referred to as the natural, and there is the supernatural. They are called different things, but they are the same thing, part of the same whole, reality."

"You cannot say what is and isn't possible, until you try, and even then, some things are still possible, they just need a different way."

Galen looks over at Jeremy, "I have thought quite a bit about the natural and supernatural, even though I have taken science subjects in school. To me, it's just obvious they follow different systems, undefinable by the other. However, this doesn't matter at this time. Right now, we should concentrate on just getting somewhere safer."

Subject: Peeking in the Window


There was rain, but the little girl didn't mind at all. Even as the stranger hides from the droplets of water, the girl dashes around, catching raindrop after raindrop, and letting them fall, never staying in one place for very long. She is still young for a sylph, and so often times she is easily entranced by the world around her.

The rain lets up, and the girl waves the sad clouds goodbye. Oh, what is this? The stranger is back on the move. That's interesting, the girl thought he'd be resting since it is late.

Eventually the stranger comes up to a seemingly deserted mansion. I wonder if this is his destination. The girl wonders, flying around the mansion for a better look. Eventually, the stranger enters, and is lost from her view. The girl sits on the rooftop patiently, her light form hardly disturbing even the old wood.

A few moments pass, and her curiousity perks up. What is going on inside? She just has to find out. She flies off the rooftop, and flies around the mansion, finding a window that looks in with the stranger, to find another stranger too. Oooh, this is getting mysterious. The girl hovers just outside the window, watching intently.
