Topic: The Red Dragon Arena Battlegrounds
Subject: A swift shot


Seya > Illythid > Fires at Evanin > Moves to T7

As soon as the battle begins, Seya already has her bow nocked and she fires at the other ranged threat in the vicinity: Evanin. After her shot, she quickly steps to behind Riva. There was no point in leaving herself open for Evanin to counterattack.

Subject: Ouch!


(just going from the sequence of events... you put a few there Kaelyn ^-^)

Still preoccupied with thinking of how she could use the orbs later, Linnix doesn't notice the floor give way under her. Linnix cries out and tries to grab at the side of the opening, but it just slips out of her reach. Down she falls, for what feels like a minute, until finally Linnix slams into the ground.

Linnix cries out in pain, and after recovering tries to judge the immense pain in her shoulder. With a little bit of difficulty, she manages to stand up, and noticing how dark it is, she checks on her candle flame orbs. With dismay, she can see two of them broken (good thing she did grab extra). However, in standing up, something catches her hand.

"Eww..." Linnix says in disgust, noticing the weirdly sticky thread.

Then the clicking mandibles immediately catches her attention. Linnix freezes and looks around warily, dismayed at the limits of her vision. She raises her hand crossbow, trying to point it in the direction of the sound. With her foot she nudges one of the remaining orbs in the direction of the noise. If there's enough light for her to make out the spider's form, she'll fire. If not, she hesitates.

Subject: Pretty Lights


Linix sighs, and puts both the torch and the light orbs in her pack.

Maybe I should grab a couple extra... Linnix thinks.

Linnix begins to pry another two off the wall, but stops as soon as she hears the noise. A sweat droplet falls down the side of her cheek, but whether it is from anticipation or from the exertion of obtaining the orbs can't be determined by her expression.

When the noise vanishes, Linnix glances around warily, but then continues to try to get these last two orbs (as quietly as possible).

Subject: Little Candle Flame


"Oh, neat!" Linnix marvels, continuing to examine the orb.

Now determined to take the interesting orb with her, Linnix begins to wonder how to get it to unattach from the wall. First she reaches behind it, to where there may be an attachment between it an the wall. Then she tries feeling above and below it, to see if there's any attachment points there.

When or if she finds an attachment point, Linnix then connects the orb to her hand. At the same time, she retrieves an unmentioned torch (because she forgot she had two of them) and tries to stick the orb onto the end. If successful, she'll repeat with a second orb for a second torch.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Seeing, but not Believing


Linnix scowls at the sight of the two tortured and impaled creatures. Surely there was no reason for that sort of thing in this world, ever. Her mind wanders back to the sight of the bandit similarly tortured, but by crucification rather than this brutal impaling.

"Ugh... this is getting so disgusting." Linnix murmurs, the sights reassuring her place as essentially a non-combatant. She couldn't take it, the sight of blood, much less torture.

Linnix shivers, and her eyes glaze over as her mind now wanders off on its own without her consent, thinking to what might have happened if They had caught her... The cave suddenly seems so much colder, and her breath seems to mist in front of her... Linnix breathes faster, and heart pounds faster, its noise deafening her... She just freezes in place...

Then she thinks back to the treasure chest she could barely see in the dark. Linnix bites her lip, and her breathing steadies. No way, she was not about to stop now. There was a reward to be collected, and so, she continues.

The interesting lights at first are a welcome sight to Linnix's eyes, but then she realizes the downside: with light on both sides of the hall, there were basically no places for her to hide if she needed to. Linnix bites her lip again. Then there was also the matter of the path splitting as well.

Well, that's just great... Linnix thought.

Was all this trouble really worth that single treasure chest? Linnix began to question that. She then turned her attention to the corridor itself. The lights really troubled her; they were so... unnatural. Linnix reaches up to one curiously.

"This can't be real..." She murmurs, tentatively touching the light (if it's not as hot as a candle flame).

That brought several other questions to her head. Why was this here? What was it for? Was it a temple? If so, what was it a temple to? So many questions struck her at the same time that her eyes glazed over, and she paused, lost in thought. Linnix didn't think she heard any rumours about such a place, and Bartholomew didn't mention anything either. Then she thought about the illusion of the river that they had passed. Was this too an illusion?

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Inching Along


Linnix began to question the situation as soon as she entered the cave; her sight was of hardly any use at all. Using her ears to guide her along with the others, she hardly trusted herself to breathe, inching along without any real sound at all.

This isn't good, she thought, the sooner this is over, the better.

However, when she passes the right alcove, a few of her doubts are reassured. So there was a reward here after all; that provides a good enough reason for coming.

I can't open that chest in this darkness if it is locked, Linnix thought, And besides, the excess coin, if there are coins in there, would be too noisy; I can't afford to give away our position right now.

Linnix's eyes go flat as her determination fills her mind. She steps forward, taking care to be as quiet as possible, but now with more purpose, holding her hand crossbow ready. She will go through with this, if only to collect the reward so owed to the party's efforts.

Subject: Facing the Darkness


Linnix fidgets with her hand crossbow for a moment, making sure it is still loaded, the mechanism showed no signs of jamming and such. However, looking closely upon her face, one can see that she is biting her lip. Perhaps it was because she was questioning going on this trek, or perhaps she was just tense going into battle; what exactly was going through Linnix's mind couldn't be easily seen.

ďDonít be frightened, If you shoot as well as you did before, when you were fighting those bandits, you have nothing to fear."

Linnix smiles sheepishly, "I think that might have just been a lucky shot." She murmurs to Aelistae, "I'll try my best anyway."

She looks at the cave in front of her, ready to follow the others into the darkness.

Subject: Solitude in the end


In the end, solitude is better, because if you die so horribly, your loved one, the one who gave you their love, will be heartbroken. Whereas in solitude, you may not receive the love of another, but to still be able to love can be enough.

So then, take your choice: pencil or pen?

Subject: The Hesitant Fighter


Linnix simply smiles and nods at everyone's suggestions as they converse with each other. She really didn't have that much of an idea of what was supposed to be done, or why; combat was not her thing. In the end, Linnix decided just to stick to the back, where she hopefully won't get in anyone's way.

Subject: New Strength and Resolve


Seya > Illythid > Prebattle

Round 1 > Moves to S6

Seya quickly enters after her teammate, moving alongside her.

Round 2 > Reads Bless Scroll

Seya reaches into the scroll canister upon her belt, and pulls out a number of rolled up scrolls. She reads one of them aloud, the divine language filling both her and her ally's hearts with further resolve.

Round 3 > Reads Magic Weapon Scroll (for Riva)

Seya reads a second scroll, this one giving Riva's sword a sharper edge with which to cut.

Round 4 > Reads Shield of Faith Scroll (for Riva)

Seya reads yet another scroll, this time providing a transparent shield around her ally.

Round 5 > Reads Entropic Shield Scroll (for self)

Seya reads another scroll, this one providing her with a multicoloured aura reminiscent of the one used by Myra.

Round 6 > Reads Guidance Scroll (for Riva)

Round 7 > Reads Shield of Faith Scroll (for self)

Round 8 > Reads Magic Weapon Scroll (for self: bow)

Round 9 > Drinks a vial

Putting the remaining rolled up scrolls back into her canister, Seya pulls out a vial of liquid at the same time. She drinks the liquid swiftly. (Devalero, you'll have to check with Glory what it does; it was hers, but she gave it to Seya)

Final Round > Draws bow

Seya takes a deep breath. In the previous phase, she didn't last that long before she was felled. Yet, Seya smiles; she didn't care about falling. All that mattered to her was that she grow strong. Even with her newfound strength, Seya reached behind her back, and pulled out the exact same longbow as she had used in the first phase. She was ready.

Subject: Question


I've been wondering this for a while... but if I increase Linnix's int at level 8 (to 12, modifier of +1 then), does Linnix get a bonus language?
And, even though I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, does Linnix gain a skill point for the prior character levels because of the change of modifier? I'm pretty sure it's no, but just wondering.
Umm... I think that's it. It might be right in the book, and I just didn't find it... I hope I didn't just miss it *sweatdrop*
Well, later!

Subject: Why is it so dark?


Linnix looks at the cave with suspicion.

"Is it just me, or does it seem too dark to be occupied?" She asks aloud.

When everyone turns to her (if they do) Linnix bristles slightly, "What? It doesn't make sense to me."

(Listen check for Linnix, this is for if she hears nothing)

"I don't even hear anything in there." Linnix adds after a moment, "Are you sure this is the right place?"

(however, if she does hear something, then this instead)

"Huh?" Linnix scratches her head thoughtfully, "That's wierd, it's dark, but there's something in there... odd... I'll think about it later, but what do you suggest Aelistae? It seems like you're the only one who can see in there unless we use a torch or something, and that won't help if we're trying to surprise it."

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: The Balancing Scales


Linnix heard the man's tale, and paused.

She closed her eyes, appearing to others to daze out, if they were watching. In actuality, she was weighing the situation carefully.

On the one hand, going after the ogre would be dangerous, and being lower on healing capability, the group would face the potential danger of having a person felled. Also, this would take some time, time that could be spent setting up camp, and getting an earlier start the next day. Finally, there wasn't even a guaranteed reward for their services. The ogre might have some valuables in its cave, but Linnix shrugged; there wasn't anything to support or deny that possibility.

Another thought struck her. They were already waylaid by bandits, with an illusion no less, what if this too were another illusion they were going headlong into?

Linnix frowns, it didn't look like there was much reason to go, but she considered the other side nonetheless.

On the other hand, she thought, it was likely that the man and his family were traveling towards where the group had come from. If that was the case, then they would know about the conditions up ahead, and it was quite apparent that the man would be too heartbroken about his loss to say anything unless they were successful.

Linnix raises her hand to her chin thoughtfully. Such knowledge would be quite beneficial.

The scales had turned up equal, a fair risk balanced by the possibility of useful knowledge.

Linnix sighs, leaning back in the seat of her cart comfortably; she hated it when things balanced like this, as they had when she first decided to take up this quest.

"Well, I'll see what the others do; if everyone's going, I might as well too." She murmurs.

Topic: The Would You Rather Game
Subject: Tough choice!


If I could I'd do it myself, that way I wouldn't get others involved, who would be affected by it in usually a malproductive way.
However, if it was something I just could not do on my own, I would have to ask others to help.
In the end, surviving is all that matters... because if you don't survive, there's no possibility of healing what was done.
It all depends on just what it is; you said 'war', but it can go to any conflict.

Choose wisely:
1) Wield a double-edged sword, a supernatural power that always harm both ways, both the recipient and the wielder, and perhaps also bystanders
2) Have the knowledge of how to use a supernatural ability, yet also know that if you use it, everyone else will know too (in other words, be the keeper of something supernatural, charged to not allow anyone else to attain/learn it, or even know about it; wielding it would let people know about it)

I'll do my best; this is really the first true campaign I'm participating in on RDInn, since I don't call an arena much of a campaign, at least in the way of character storylines.
I'll try not to alter Linnix's character too much, but Zonk didn't leave all that much for me to go on, so I do have to improvise some aspects.

Well, later!

Subject: Linnix


Linnix looks on at the proceedings, viewing Aelistae in a new light. Before, she wasn't altogether sure what to make of the drow priestess, but now... now she understood, just a little more. And what of the new person they just rescued? Linnix wasn't quite sure what to make of her, and decided now was not the time to try. However, Barthelomew's words bothered her.
She had heard a few rumours herself about 'the Cardinal', but never realized just how... inhumane... the person referred to might be.

"How disgusting," She murmurs under her breath.

In the depths of her mind, she also wonders about the possibility of 'the Cardinal's' and her path crossing. Heh, a person who decides they have the authority to say what was acceptable, or not, and deal out judgment accordingly? How preposterous. It really ticked her off...
Linnix shakes her head, it may happen, and it may not; there's no reason to think about it right now. Right now, all that mattered was to get back on track, and maybe make up for lost time.

"Well, shall we get going then?" She asks aloud of no one in particular, gently urging Tock forward, turning back toward the road everyone was following previously.

A mate is someone who is near,
Someone to love and to hold dear,
Someone to encourage you forever more,
Someone to heal your pain and anything sore,
Someone in which you can confide,
Someone from which you will never have to hide,
Someone who will be your eternal light,
Which will shatter even the darkest night.

After regaining sanity, wonder whether or not you had insurance on the car for 'spontaneous acts of destruction'. Most likely you didn't, or it wasn't available in your package, so go to the market for a new car.
