Topic: The Would You Rather Game
Subject: The Drawbacks of Eternity


Eternity is nice, because you actually have time, but at the same time you have too much of it, and so time loses meaning for you. That said, however, with eternity, there is the possibility you could learn many things, above all being contentment with oneself. Yet, as soon as you have achieved it, since you have eternity, it too loses its meaning over time (say a couple hundred years, which isn't that much with eternity).

So, in the end, it is far better to have something with a beginning, and end. It is part of what being alive is about, pushing your limits to surpass the moment and even what is referred to as human nature. To grow and learn, but above all to learn to be happy with what you have, or, if that isn't possible, find out how to change what you can, usually yourself, so that it is possible, without hurting others who are just trying to achieve the same thing.

EDIT: Oh dear, I was working on this at the same time Kuriosaki posted. I have to go to bed right now, but I'll respond to Kuriosaki's too tomorrow, so my post is still valid.

EDIT2: I'd go with rediscovering the wonder of being little. Rediscovering the world would be thrilling. Reliving my childhood... that I don't want to do.

Choose one, or choose the other, but choose carefully:
1) Know how to travel through time and have the means to do so, however it is only for you; you cannot bring any other living thing.

2) Have the ability to blur the distinction between reality and fantasy. (basically, you are a key by which fantasy can be realized as reality, in an area the size of a house around you)

Subject: Must is Such an Absolute Word


"Must?" Riina repeats softly, testing the foreign word.

It was a word she had seldom heard from Xera, but it seemed to be popular among the travellers she came across, especially ones involved in the war. It was so obvious if they were, since they'd sometimes work themselves up to increase their morale, using that word in many of their sentences. Still, goblins this close to the forest? Riina wonders, Hmm, I'll have to make sure they don't have any intentions to enter.

The other one mentioned captives, but Riina didn't seem to notice, thinking about the foreign word 'must'. He was quick to move off, and judging from his action of drawing a weapon, it was quite clear what he intended to do. Riina sighs, If he draws attention to the forest, and more goblins come and eventually overrun it, more than three, what was it? Elven? Well, more than that would be lost. She thought solemnly. She didn't have a duty to aid travellers, even if she was a wanderer herself, but she did have a bit of an obligation to the forest, to her guardian Xera. Shaking her head, she moves without a sound, seeming to follow the other one. Many hasty travellers, she noted, seemed to be quite stubborn as well, so she sighed again as she realized she likely wouldn't be able to sway the other one from stopping.

"I do hope that you intend to be thorough in what you intend to do." Riina's gentle voice carries in Sylvan, her preferred language, with a hint of disdain, "If you're not, I'll have to clean up after you, and if we're both not able to, even working together, I won't forgive you." She says simply, just barely hinting at the bigger picture as she draws her own bow.

Subject: Shadows of Pain and Disdain


Linnix nods solemnly, "It's alright, if you can't explain, then you don't have to try. Just please remember, I am here if you need to talk; you're the one who said 'a trouble shared is a trouble halved', so try not to keep everything inside."

Even as she says those words, Linnix knows they are as directed towards Aelistae as they are to herself, but there just didn't seem to be any time for it for her. Linnix turns back to the lock, and with a smooth click, it unlocks, with the footsteps of the others already slightly faded. With a last check over the chest, Linnix opens it. From within, she pulls out a dusty pendant of a horse-headed humanoid figure.

"I like jewellery, but not when it's ugly." Linnix says casually, stuffing it in her pack negligently (to throw it onto the pile of treasure later).

While her hand is in her pack, she feels for the money pouch she picked up earlier, and reaches within. She feels the coins, and grabs a handful, but also feels a smooth object against her hand. Reaching a bit further, she manages to grab the opal along with the coins.

"Here," Linnix says, holding out her hand, "I don't know if that's half, but we can look at it later and check if you want to; I had found more than a sword back where the spider was."

(let's see, a random handful of coins would be... umm, maybe 13gp and 1sp? I'm not sure, you decide Kaelyn )

* * *


[Later]

Linnix sneaks the pendant onto the treasure pile when (hopefully) no one is looking, and then afterwards walks over to the side of the group and sits, slightly at a loss of what to do. She watches Aelistae exit the cave, and thinks of following, but decides not to. Aelistae likely wanted some time to herself, and so she would respect that. Without thinking, Linnix stretches her arms, and then winces as the pain to her shoulder blade returns. She definately jarred it hard in that fall earlier. Just then, Loriel spoke up about wanting to venture back in.

"Are you out of your mind?" Linnix asks, "First off, did you see the bridge fall into that hole that now blocks the way in or out of those ruins? How are you going to get back across that? Not to mention, if you do find them, presuming they actually are there, how can you get THEM across that hole as well? Secondly, there are no real coincidences when two opposing forces are involved. Face the facts: our patron was attacked soon after our entrance, we run into a series of traps including one whereby the one we're supposed to be helping attacks methodically and a few people nearly die, and you have the nerve to say that wasn't an elaborate trap?! Not to mention this after being duped by something so elaborate as an illusion no less, with that false river and bridge, or have you forgotten about that?"

Linnix takes in a large breath, and nearly continues her rant, but decides that was enough. She had actually stood up and advanced on Loriel at the outrageous idea. Linnix shakes her head, and turns her back. It was bad enough earlier when Loriel had first spoken against their patron, but now she had the nerve to suggest this notion as well. This didn't bode well, and yet, Linnix now knew it wasn't going to get better. She had resolved to talk with Loriel earlier, but it seemed that it wouldn't solve anything. Without another note, Linnix left the cave entrance, careful to not be too loud, in case she disturbed Aelistae, but when she came out, she could see it wasn't necessary. Aelistae was in the midst of a beautiful dance, and how pretty it was. Linnix sits just past to the side to the cave entrance and smiles sadly, perhaps another time, another life, she would have learned how as well.

Subject: Night Wanderer


Riina had walked solemnly for several hours. Her eyes were clouded and distant as she walked, and she wasn't really paying attention; she never would have used a torch otherwise, or used the path for that matter. The dark sky above could've easily reflected the dreams Riina has had, and perhaps that was why she was so lost in thought. Did she really want to find her parents? They had left her when she was born, and she was already an adult. But still, maybe they intended to return... Suddenly she is jolted to reality by what seems to be another traveller.

"Quickly!" he said, with an urgency in his voice, "You must douse the torch and follow me! These roads are not safe on this eve."

The message quickly got her attention. Wordlessly she put the torch out, and disappeared into the foliage of the trees, to come up beside the traveler. Her bare feet hardly made a sound on the ground, and her presence seemed to even make the leaves stay still for her. Looking into a pair of eyes not unlike her own green ones, her gaze looks beyond the other killoren's eyes, and into their soul. Seeing trustworthiness, she averts her gaze, and then avoids eye contact. She hasn't even been around other killoren, in being raised by Xera, and so her shyness even showed here.

"What is it?" She asks, her gentle voice almost hidden by the night breeze.

Now that Riina is closer, you can see that she has long, roughly cut dark green hair, dark brown skin, and dark green eyes. If you weren't a killoren as well, you could've mistaken her for a dryad. Holding her hair out of the way of her eyes is a simple yet elegantly carved wooden circlet, and she wears a leaf green cloak. On her back is a backpack, a bow and quiver and a strangely carved quarterstaff. This quarterstaff has broad, flat ends that angle into points, with what could be a handle in the middle. In essence, it is a wooden two bladed sword. At her side is a simple sheath holding a longsword.

Subject: Opening a Chest


Linnix examined the wooden chest. The lock seemed simple enough, but there was something nagging at her, the feeling that something was wrong. Finally, she found it. She smiles as she disarms the trap; good thing no one else tried to open it. Yet, even as her lock picks clink in the chest's lock, she hesitates.

"Aelistae," Linnix begins quietly so that only Aelistae would hear, the metallic clinking aiding to mask her speech, "After that last battle, it looked as though you were holding your blade differently from when you fought that spider... it seemed like there was something wrong."

Linnix glances over at Aelistae, catching her eyes with her own, "If there is something, did you want to talk about it?"

The sound of metal clinking against metal echoes gently up the hallway after the others, concealing the concern hidden within.

Subject: Umm...


Linnix would be more likely to ask Aelistae for a couple of reasons. One, Xaris is more of a fighter-type person, and so if there was something happening outside, it'd be better if he was there. Also, Linnix would still want to talk and see what was wrong, and finally, it'd give her a chance to split the one money pouch between them.

Or am I just being too picky?

Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Denied Opportunity


The elven woman continues searching around the city, but surprisingly enough, there isn't any adequate place for her to work. Most of the metalwork places are specifically to work weapons or armour, with tools and setups too blunt for the elegance and beauty required of jewellery making. She sighs, there was nothing for it; she'd have to make the tiara later.

There was something else though, she had chanced a glimpse behind her and saw one of the ones she had seen the previous day. Hehehe, good thing he won't recognize me, even if he saw me in my real form She thought, and couldn't help but be amused. Her spell that allowed her to assume an elven form was potent, and many people that saw both this elven form and her real form would not be able to tell, that is, if they ever got to see her real form.

Well, I suppose there's nothing else I have to do in this form she thinks, turning in an alley. A slight surprise flickers over her face for a brief instant as she sees the same person. That's inconvenient she thought, I'll have to go elsewhere. Continuing along her path as though nothing was wrong, she cheerfully waves to the other person as any commoner would, passing them by, with all apparent intent to continue onto a different road, pretending to continue her search.

Well, Linnix is intending to open the chest, but it is in the dark, so unless she can open the chest (picking the lock I'd imagine) and hold a candle orb in the other hand, she'll have to have someone else there too...

"Sounds fine to me." Linnix says, "I'll help!"

Linnix was a bit hesitant, because she wasn't exactly sure how strong the makeshift bridge would be, but it was better than nothing.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Slight Snakephobia... or whatever it is called


As soon as Xaris kicks open the box, a pair of serpantine eyes seems to glare right at Linnix. Linnix quickly gives a startled gasp, recoils and nearly falls backwards onto the floor before she realizes that the snake wasn't alive. Breathing a sigh of relief, Linnix quickly recovers, looking around sheepishly.

"Sorry," She says, blushing a bit, "I always get a bit startled by snakes."

Linnix glares at the snake dagger, staring in its eyes. There is no way I am taking that thing she thinks to herself. The golden and silvery shininess in the box with the dagger, however, puts a grin on Linnix's face. Well, it wasn't going anywhere at the moment, so Linnix decided to look around for other things. Well, a good place to start would be to search their fallen enemies.

Linnix walks towards the fallen woman, and takes Kas' spear roughly out of her body, not careful to do as little damage as possible. She leaves the spear on the ground, and searches through the woman's pack. She immediately takes the bolts, knowing she'll need the ammunition, and also pulls out a hand crossbow similar to her own. Linnix stands up, and pulls out her own for reference. The new crossbow's general appearance is the same, but Linnix is amazed to see the quality of it. The curvature and design of the bow is far superior to the similar bow on Linnix's. Linnix checks the firing mechanism, and yes, it is simple like her own crossbow's, but it is just that much better. Even the wood was a better grain and had a nicer finish. There was no question about it, Linnix would definately take this.

Stowing her new weapon in the spot where her old one was kept, Linnix still decides to keep her old hand crossbow, and puts it in her pack. Linnix returns to looking through the woman's other items, placing them neatly on the floor, even if they weren't really in any sort of order. Taking the money pouch, Linnix then takes everything of value and puts it by the steel box. Moving on to the ogre, Linnix nearly misses the shiny glint coming from its tusk. Slipping the ring off quickly, Linnix likewise grabs its money pouch and puts it on the pile of things. The axe... Linnix wasn't even sure if she could lift such a massive thing. She finally takes Kas's spear and puts it to the side of the pile.

"There, that's every-" Linnix begins, but pauses, eyeing the wall hangings suspiciously.

She remembered that people sometimes liked to hide things behind wall pictures, but was it only limited to pictures? Linnix quickly ran to the nearest one and looked behind it. Nothing. Next one! Nothing. OK, how about this one? Nope, nothing. Glaring at the walls for defying her, Linnix nearly rips the next one off the wall. This one hid a ladder. Well, better than nothing Linnix thinks a bit sourly, taking it and putting it by the other things. A second ladder was quickly found afterwards, and likewise placed. Finally, there was actually a small recess in one of the walls, only noticeable by the light entering it. Linnix slides the stone cover to the side, revealing a little cupboard-like thing. Grabbing the rope, the lamps and oil impatiently, Linnix dumps them by the rest of the stuff.

"OK." Linnix says, "NOW, that's everything."

Linnix eyes the pile of relatively unorganized stuff, although, she didn't pile it so messily that you couldn't take a single glance and be able to see everything in it. This was about the way Linnix always organized stuff, just like how her room was, when she had a room.

[OOC: I know I'm making Linnix find everything, but everyone else seems a bit busy, and this way we don't have to go through several posts finding things, everyone can see what there is and RP who wants what or plan what to do about the broken floor, and at least she didn't take everything ]

I think the only immediate item that Linnix would want/use is the MW hand crossbow and bolts. Other than that, the only other item that'd immediately jump out at her is the snakey dagger, and not because she's interested in taking it

oh, that's assuming you're talking about the snakey one

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Aftermath


Linnix looks around frantically, looking for some other enemy to dispatch; her anger had not been satisfied. Standing there, seething, the truth slowly began to sink in. This battle was over.

The daggers fall harmlessly out of Linnix's hands, and she slumps to the ground, exhausted. Her shoulder blade's pain suddenly returns tenfold, reminding Linnix of its existance. She winces; she had pushed herself emotionally, and it began to show. She was tired, and yet, she hadn't done much at all, so why was she so tired? Linnix rubs her eyes, her hands still with the imprinting of the handles of the daggers and crossbow they were holding so tightly onto earlier. Rest and other thoughts would have to wait, right now there was still a few things to be done.

"How's everyone doing?" Linnix asked, her voice shaking, although whether it was from a remaining anger or exhaustion is a bit difficult to tell.

Linnix then stands up, and puts away her fallen weapons. She looks toward Aelistae specifically. Something had changed about the Drow Priestess. Her sword was out, and that was a bit bizarre in itself, knowing that Aelistae had started the battle with her bow, but something was wrong. Her grip was slightly offset, and the sword also was slightly angled from the way she had held it in the battle against the spider, or was that how she always held it? Was the change just something to do with the actual lighting? No, Linnix stopped herself; her intuition was telling her something was amiss, and as a good friend, she would find out and help.

Linnix began to walk toward Aelistae, but something then caught her eye. The throne was just to her right, and she thought she saw a glimmer of an unexpected dull metal. Linnix quickly glances back towards Aelistae. Well, she reasons, I suppose everyone else nearby might make it a bit awkward... I'll have to wait. Linnix turns and begins examining the throne. Amidst the golden trim and jewels, there was definately small bits and traces of an inner mechanism within, and there were traces and even parts of non-precious metal showing.

"Hey!" Linnix calls, "There is something inside this fancy hollow chair!"

Of course, Linnix wasn't sure that it was hollow, but if it was a hidden thing, chances were good that it was something valuable. It was just like that bag of gold coins she acquired from inside the hidden drawer in a desk of someone she was stealing from when she first started out. Well, this was a bit more complex, but if there's a hand or even finger sized hole or groove (like the handle underneath of that drawer) then there could be something. Linnix continues examining the chair, testing the grooves in the woodwork, until she finds a pair of parallel grooves running along the side of the chair's back. With a small grin on her face, she pushes her fingers around the strip of metal inlay, finding purchase behind it, and yanks, the actually thick metal inlay actually coming out of the wood at her hand, revealing it to be a lever. With a few mechanical clinks and grinds, the back of the throne falls off, revealing what appeared to Linnix to be just a metal box. She quickly looks at it for a lock, and finds none.

"Xaris! Kick it open!" Linnix calls to the little gnome, uncertain of how much force it would take to open the thing.

At the noise and sight of the lightning bolt, Linnix froze. Her eyes darted to the woman, and her jaw dropped open. From her mouth, which may have been dropped in shock or surprise, a hiss like an enraged cat escapes as her eyes narrow. She had questioned it, but didn't say anything about it, and now her companions could die from this!? It was an outrage! Yet, the thing that stunned Linnix the most was that she could have prevented this from happening. She could worry about that later, right now, she had something to do.

Linnix raises her crossbow in sheer anger and malice, levelling it with the head of the woman. Her eyes a moment ago were flat with determination, but now, they sparked and erupted with the vindictive rage within her. Without even a second thought, Linnix fired, and the woman had better hope she dies with this bolt, because otherwise Linnix will reach her with her blade.

Time crawls to a standstill just as the door opens; the slight pause before the storm, and what a storm it would prove to be. Battlecries and threats and the sounds of weapons firing or being swung filled the air in an instant, however, Linnix heard none of it. Coherent thought seemingly lost in transit, Linnix only took in the scene, singling out the woman, the ogre, and the orc closest to the woman. The ogre was definately no force to be underestimated, but Linnix was past worrying about that right now. As soon as she had a clear shot, Linnix fired her crossbow, aiming at the head or torso of the closest enemy to the one they had to ensure the rescue of. Her eyes darted around, looking for the other one that was supposed to be there, only to find nothing.

She was afraid, she was nervous, she was tense, and she was angry, but the emotions all combined into a single determination. In order to acquire what reward there was from this, Linnix still had to fulfill the mission, and right now, that was all that mattered. The overwhelming feeling shines brightly in Linnix's eyes, her pain from earlier vanishing from her mind as even her small, hidden thought to run away was overridden, and all thinking becomes solely directed to that single goal to rescue the woman and her daughter.

"Yes, let's go!" Linnix says, a little bit nervous in anticipating the case that the party would actually end up fighting an ogre, and just slightly on edge in general.

The racous door had left Linnix unsettled; surely some person or something would've heard such a noise. Either that, or they were surely warned of intruders. In any case, the fact that nothing acted on it was unnerving alone, but the anticipation was driving Linnix a bit crazy.

When the party reaches the final door on the side of the hallway, Linnix murmurs, "Can you be sure first that this one won't be so loud as that other one?"

While Xaris and Artanis check the rooms on either side of the hallway, Linnix stands with her crossbow ready in the hall, watching in both directions. She noticeably winces at the racous noise caused by the door Xaris opens, and quickly glances along the hall. When nothing seems to occur, Linnix breathes out; she didn't realize she was holding her breath again.

"Anything?" She asks softly, her voice hardly above a whisper.

Subject: Item Creation - The Search for Materials


The girl awoke to the dawn, as the sun's warming rays touched her invisible form. She yawns and stretches, but then something catches her eye. There is a glimmer below, in the marketplace. Curious, the girl flies over, just above the people below.

One merchant in the market decided to display a beautiful gem, and it was its sparkle in the sunlight that caught the girl's attention. The sapphire was cut exquisitely, the angles catching the sunlight just perfectly. However, the gemstone was only being sold on its own; it was not within a ring or pendant, or other type of jewellery. This didn't bother the girl in the slightest; she was a craftsperson after all, but now how to buy the gem?

It was a simple matter for her, being used to doing this sort of thing, as she flies over to a deserted alley. She makes sure that it is indeed empty and there was no one watching, looking all over the alley methodically; she was used to this. Pulling out her belt pouch, which actually held considerably more than a normal pouch should. Still invisible, she lays out a few articles of elven-sized clothing for her to wear as she places what she is currently wearing in the bag. With calculated thoughts, she concentrates and brings her form to change. Her dragonfly wings retract into her back as her size increases. Putting on the clothing she had chosen, she allows herself to become visible.

She now had the appearance of an elven woman, with autumn-red hair and blue eyes, dressed in a relatively plain purple dress. Putting her pouch back on her waist, she confidently walks back out of the alley and proceeds to buy the gem displayed by the merchant, for a lofty sum. Placing the gem carefully in her bag, the woman strolls through the marketplace, searching for inspiration or other materials she could use. Finally getting a bar of silver and a circlet mold, she now wanders through the town, searching for a place where she can start her craft.
