”You Are Getting Sleepy”

The Coral Cave
[Exits: south]
(Invis 71) (Intense Dark Red Aura) Wish is resting here.
Brimstone is resting here.
> Look Wish

Wish smiles happily.
Wish bows before you.

You say, 'just checking on you'.
You say, 'I did not mean to interrupt'.

Wish smiles happily.
Wish says, 'no interruption'.
Wish says, 'I am waiting for brimstone to return'.

Cordir walks about the cave, Her glance returning to you often.

Wish looks at Cordir intently, his eyes boring into her soul.
Wish lifts a hand in front of his face, his fingers splayed out, drawing Cordir in.
Wish closes one eye and says, "You are getting veeerrry sleeeepy."
Wish stops doing that, since clearly Cordir is not amused.

Cordir blinks and a smile flickers at the edge of her lips.

Wish winks suggestively.
Wish says, 'Don't worry, I am an Alchemist, not a Hypnotist'.

Cordir says with barely suppressed laughter, "I am very sleepy!"
You sleep.

She peeks a little.

Wish looks at his fingers, very surprised at their effectiveness.

... that was the worst fake snore ever.

Wish starts to think of what tricks he would play on a sleeping Cordir...
Wish snaps his fingers with an idea!
Wish rummages in his keepsake for a feather and a tube of toothpaste.

Her lips twitch as she tries not to snicker.

Wish eyes the toothpaste in one hand, the feather in the other...and changes his mind.
Wish puts a finger to his chin, deep in thought...
Wish snaps his fingers again, with another genius idea!
Wish rummages in his keepsake for a can of whip cream, a mouse, and a bag of ice.

She rolls over on to one hip with a dramatically bad snore.

Wish shakes his head...he just doesn't have it in him to do it to Cordir.
Wish sighs.
Wish regretfully puts away the whip cream, mouse, and ice.
Wish rummages around his keepsake for a nice, comfy pillow.
Wish lays it gently beneath Cordir's head.

She glances over Her shoulder. "The sand itches. May I be awake now?"

Wish waves his hand and says "At the count of three you will awaken, refreshed, and with no memory of what has occurred in the past 5 minutes."

Wish says, ‘One'.
Wish says, ‘Two'.
Wish says, ‘Two and a half'.
Wish says, ‘Two and three quarters.'.

Wish pauses for dramatic effect.

Wish says, ‘Three'.

Cordir wakes and stands up.
Cordir yawns and stretches, sitting up with a smile.

Wish says, 'Hi Cordir!'.
Wish says, 'Welcome to Coral Cave!'.

You say, 'Hi Wish!'.

Cordir brushes the sand from her gown.

Wish says, pointing to Cordir's hair, "You really shouldn't leave your garden with bed head."

Cordir catches up the pillow and hands it to you.

Wish says, 'hmmm...I wonder how that got there.'.
Wish puts the pillow away in his keepsake.
Wish says, 'gotta run'.

Cordir returns the pillow… firmly… to the middle of your chest. Ooof!

Wish has left the game.

Seraph: Aoide has your daughter.

Cordir: My Sister holds her soul.

Seraph: let’s make a deal
Seraph: you tell me why you hate me and my people and I’ll give you your husband

The Hall of the High Order
[Exits: north]
(Blue Aura) A hand-lettered open book rests upon a black iron pedestal.
(Invis 71) (Intense Dark Blue Aura) Seraph is here.

Seraph nods in recognition to you.

You say, 'I have told you'.
You say, 'Repeatedly.'.
Seraph says, 'please have a seat'.

You say, 'No.'.
You say, 'I will have no hospitality from the one who holds my husband's soul'.

Seraph says, 'Because of some fool named torchbearer?'.
Seraph walks over and sits on his throne of bones.

You say, 'Because you are evil that pretends otherwise'.
You say, 'worse now with that false aura'.

You say, 'And I despise you for holding Deamhan.'.
You say, 'Before that I simply .. disliked you'.

Seraph says, 'cause of someone else?'.

You say, 'Now you have my full rage in a way that no other ever has.'.
You say, 'I disliked those who's whole being is that of pretense'.
You say, 'Molo was proud that he was styled "Prince of Lies"'.
You say, 'be blunt about your wickedness . That I respect'.
You say, 'But telling others of your halo while carrying a pitchfork is an insult'.

Seraph taps his fingers on the arm of his throne.
Seraph says, 'am I wicked?'.

You say, 'You are.'.

Seraph says, 'oh'.

You say, 'that lovely false aura to the contrary'.

Seraph says, 'my aura speaks truth'.
Seraph says, 'it’s you caught up in hatred'.

You say, 'and there it is again.'.
You say, 'I have told you my reasons'.

Seraph opens his hand and a soul appears.

You say, 'give me Deamhan an-Shalach's soul'.

Seraph says, 'you’re the ones using people to do your work'.

Cordir draws the Silver thread from the Pattern.

Seraph closes his hand.

The Thread glows.

Seraph says, 'do it '.

You raise your eyebrow.

Seraph says, 'cut my thread'.

You say, 'That is HIS thread'.
You say, 'Not yours'.

Seraph says, 'admit you played your sister to do your dirty work'.

You say, 'I did not.'.
You say, 'If I wanted your people dead I would do it myself'.
You say, 'I am completely capable of doing so – shall I demonstrate?'.

Seraph says, 'you used your sister'.

You say, 'I did not.'.

You say, 'Give me My husband's soul.'.

Seraph says, 'you did'.

You say, 'and we can go back and forth on this as many times as you like'.

Seraph opens his hand again a soul appears.
Seraph says, 'you want him?'.

You say, 'You know that I do, your taunts aside'.
Seraph says, 'kiss me and he is yours'.

You say, '...what?'.

Seraph says, 'you heard me'.

You hear Chico's death cry.

You get the corpse of Chico.

Seraph says, 'poor little fella'.

You nod.

Seraph says, 'so kiss me and he is yours'.
Seraph removes his helm.
Seraph says, 'it’s a small simple request'.

You say, 'I have already abided one of your requests'.
You say, 'and you did not uphold it'.

Seraph stands up.
Seraph says, 'which one?'.

Seraph says, 'that was just curiosity.’.

Seraph walks over to you.

You say, 'Do. Not.'.

Seraph walks around you.

You say, 'Give me his soul as agreed.'.

Seraph says, 'just one kiss and they are yours'.

Cordir glares at you, eyes black with rage.

You say, 'I do not believe you.'.

Seraph opens his other hand and Keller’s soul appears.

You say, 'You have proven...'.
Cordir closes her eyes a brief moment.

You say, 'Yourself a liar and no Good creature.'.

Seraph whispers: take a chance Cordir...nothing to lose everything to gain.

You say, 'Nothing to gain except yet more trickery and lies'.

Seraph says, 'i am honor bound'.

You laugh.

The earth trembles beneath your feet!

You say, 'You do not have the slightest seeming of honor about you'.

Seraph says, 'let’s find out shall we'.
Seraph says, 'one kiss and they are yours'.

You say, 'They are the Pattern's.'.
You say, 'Not mine. Not yours. Not Katrana's.'.
You say, 'Souls belong in the Pattern.'.

Seraph says, 'either way - one kiss and they will be returned'.

You say, 'Why?'.
You say, 'answer me that.'.
You say, 'It is hardly some deathless secret passion you have been holding.'.

Seraph says, 'i have a feeling about you'.

You say, 'What do you mean - a feeling?'.

Seraph says, 'we have a deal'.

You say, 'speak plainly if that is possible for a forked tongue desert snake such as yourself'.

Seraph says, 'kind words will not get you anywhere'.
You say, 'swear it on the blood and honor of your tribe.'.

Seraph says, 'of course'.

You say, 'Say the words'.

Seraph says, 'i swear'.

You say, 'say it all'.
You say, '"I swear on the blood and honor of my tribe that on exchange for a single kiss and nothing more I will return the souls of Deamhan and Keller"'.

Seraph speaks the words.

Cordir says abruptly, "Sit down." She gestures abruptly her face cold with grief and anger.

Seraph walks and sits on his throne.

Cordir follows, standing in front of you. "If you, a god, break your word to me.."
Seraph says, 'you will have to trust me'.
You say, 'Tynian's Law will not protect you'.

Seraph says, 'you will have to trust me'.

You say, 'and I can and will ..hurt you.'.

Seraph says, 'you will have to trust me'.

You say, 'Make no mistake. I am not a "powerless goddess" as you described me to your mouse'.

Seraph grins happily at you.

You say, '...and I despise blackmail'.
Cordir glares at you from inches away.
Cordir tilts her head to one side slightly and her lips brush yours, in a light kiss.

Seraph says, 'what I expected - a cheap way out'.

You say, 'and what I expected - a promise broken'.
You say, 'you asked for a kiss'.
You say, 'Now give me their souls'.

Seraph says, 'open your hands'.

Cordir takes a step back, re-establishing physical distance and does so, her hands cupped.

Seraph opens his hands as two souls appear.
Seraph places the souls in your hands.
Seraph says, 'there, as we agreed'.

Seraph puts back on his helm.

Cordir visibly releases a breath, then releases the souls back into the Pattern.

A Midnight Garden
[Exits: south]
(White Aura) A distressingly large, shiny black spider weaves webs here.

Cordir yanks off her gown, ripping the neckline in the process, dropping it to the grass.

Cordir gestures and ebon flame roars through the garden, surrounding her in a seething column.

Cordir stands amidst the sacred fires of the Wyld, letting them burn her clean of Seraph's presence.

Cordir hides her face in her hands, shoulders shaking as she weeps bitterly in disgust and rage.

Cordir sinks to her knees, whispering her lost husband's name, fingers pressed against her throat and the marks of his Kiss there.

Cordir lets the fires die down after a time, unmoving.

Spiders creep in from every corner of the garden, crawling over her still form, weaving a new gown.

Cordir rests quietly as they do so, letting them do their work.

Cordir rises at last, clothed in ebon-black spidersilk that matches Her jet black eyes.

A silver weaving shuttle appears in one hand, a pair of scissors in the other.

She gazes at the scissors a long moment, then releases them back to the Wyldess, where they belong.

Cordir gazes up into the Pattern, comforting herself with a touch upon the Silver, Argentine, and finally Scarlet threads, restored to the Weave.

She nods.

The Hunted

(Log by Samiyah)

A Twisting Bit of Tunnel
[Exits: north up down]
Here, the ceiling is uncomfortably low, the floor raised and jagged in many
spots. Combat here would be impossible, as there is simply not enough room
to maneuver safely. The glitter of gemstone can be seen here and there, in
long veins of purple and indigo within the dark rock. The walls are cold to
the touch. A faint light flickers upon the ceiling. In one curving corner,
it appears that a passage downward is opened. A tiny scrap of fabric hints
that someone travelled that way recently.
A small figure huddles in a small ball, whimpering under its breath.

> buy orange
A whimpering, terrified gnome says (in common), 'I don't sell that, try LIST.'.
> buy bubbly
A whimpering, terrified gnome says (in common), 'I don't sell that, try LIST.'.

> list

You start to moan.

You say (in common), 'oh no'.
You say (in common), 'no'.
You say (in common), 'no'.
You say (in common), 'no'.

Samiyah holds her head in her hands, scared.

A whimpering, terrified gnome says (in gnomish), 'Yes!'

Samiyah flees!

A Dead End into a Small Cave
[Exits: north]
This small cave is far too small for a dauskdraug to enter, though
clawed evidence at its mouth shows that the hungry denizens of the
cave have tried. A lingering scent of death and rot permeates this
tiny cave, and the stone underfoot is sticky and unpleasant.
This corpse has nearly rotted away from age and draug slime.

You shudder from the sheer thought of it.

Samiyah puts a hand to her throat as if to still her racing heartbeat.

Someone eats a blood red potion with glowing swirls from a saddlebag.

You say (in common), 'ohgosh'.
You say (in common), '... Sahib Booga?'.

Someone smiles happily.

Kerriariadne has granted you the ability to see him when he is invis.

Kerriariadne says, 'by another bard?'.

You say (in common), 'yes'.
You say (in common), 'By Eathor'.
You say (in common), '_And_ the entire Wyld Hunt'.
You say (in common), 'I just can't see any of them.'.
You say (in common), 'so have i to keep moving, moving, moving'.
You say (in common), 'and i had hoped to get some special potions here'.

Kerriariadne says, 'Well moving is always a great idea anyhow.'.

You say (in common), 'but alas, someone has bought them all'.

Kerriariadne sighs loudly.

You say (in common), 'my guess, eathor and shilea'.

You say (in common), '(and now my cat is trying to help them pk me by jumping on me and my maps at the Wrong Time)'.

Kerriariadne snickers softly.
Kerriariadne says, 'Well, you should be okay. I have a dark - but positive - feeling about it.'.
Kerriariadne giggles.

Kerriariadne hugs you.
