> l mittens
Just a simple little pair of mittens, eh? Knitted, no doubt. Angora maybe.

No. Nothing so simple.
Some sort of great and terrible sorcery was used. The kind that historians
try to keep quite hush-hush lest the unwary or foolish attempt to recreate
such monstrosities. Truly, only a madman would have made such a thing. The
mind boggles, as you examine the unnatural thing before you: mittens, soft
and warm and luxurious, made of a dark black fur. Unremarkable, Except...
Except for the undeniable fact that THEY ARE ALIVE! They blink at you with
adorable, kittenish blue-gray eyes, and mewl and purr. Truly, this is mage-
craft gone terribly, terribly awry.

Ghazkull’s Wisdom

(Log by Sami)
(Nearly simultaneous with the log that follows)

The Lower Hall
[Exits: north up]
This hallway must have been built by giants! It is huge! Then
again, there are more than a few giants that belong to The Guild, so
it may just be so. A stairway leads up to another hallway above.
A copy of the TFC Daily News lies here.
(Dark Purple Aura) Ghazkull is here.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'what makes you say that?'.

You say (in common), 'Your peridot is gone.'.

Ghazkull nods.

You say (in common), 'and there's just something about your aura..'.

Samiyah tilts her head to one side, regarding you.

Samiyah looks thoughtful. 'The gem was like Seraph's, after all?'

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'it appears so'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I thought a lot about our conversation'.

Lins tells you (in common), 'The Materialistic Lyrical carried by a galley rat.'.

You say (in common), 'could I ask you to verify some information that I have just gotten?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'and thought there might be a possibility'.

You say (in common), 'Lins says there's a lyrical on a galley rat'.

You say (in common), 'I apologize for interrupting'.

Samiyah blushes, ducking her head and concealing her face in one of the layers of her veil.

Ghazkull grumbles.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'my apologies'.

You tell Venom (in common), '*firmly* Ghazkull says I am NOT uneducated.'.

You tell Venom (in common), '.. most things, yes. He is honest. '.
You tell Venom (in common), '*amends* he has never told me anything that turned out to be untrue.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'He is evil.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'He has a red aura. He is not evil.'.

Samiyah glances at you, as she speaks to someone else about you.

Venom tells you (in common), 'I'm going to remember you said that.'.

Ghazkull raises an eyebrow at you.

You tell Venom (in common), 'YOU are evil. AND you have a red aura.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'I wonder how your Sahib feels about that.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'Sahib knows that I am friends with Ghazkull. He gave me permission to ask Ghazkull to join the High Order.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'And what of his rigid stance against evil, surely all red auras must be crushed?'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'Besides, Ghazkull and I are blood bound, people say. I don't know what that means except that means I smell like pastry to him.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'Sahib does not require me to attack anyone. I cannot HELP Ghazkull. but we can be friends and talk. '.

Venom tells you (in common), '*chuckles politely* Yes... a very educated statement darling.'.

You tell Venom (in common), '*frown* You are being unkind. It was an analogy. Not a good one. We couldn't find a good analogy that did not involve pastry or crying.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'and I do not know about vampire things, just that everyone says that since I fed him, that means we are bound.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'And here I thought you were stale and took analogies literally.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'and I am not darling to you.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'You never cease to impress me.'.

You tell Venom (in common), 'I know what sarcasm is! Teva says I am too sarcastic by far.'.

You tell Venom (in common), '...*blinks*....'.

Samiyah looks kerflummoxed.

Venom tells you (in common), 'There is so much we could teach each other... if only I could show you that my ways are not evil.'.

Samiyah bites her lower lip, thinking.

You tell Venom (in common), '*firmly* You take people's will away from them. That is worst-of-worst.'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'He has his will, sand-goat. He just has to obey me when I require XP.'.

You tell Venom (in common), '*gasp* I am not a goat!'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), '(multiple conversations on different channels are tough on my phone)'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'is everything okay?'.

Samiyah looks angry and shakes her head. She mutters, 'I am NOT a goat! He is rude!'

Ghazkull raises an eyebrow.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'who said that?'.

You say (in common), 'Venom!'.
You say (in common), 'he is very strange'.

Ghazkull nods.

You say (in common), 'first he says I am uneducated and like a flower and then disill... a word I did not know..'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'disillusioned?'.

You nod.

Ghazkull sits down and thinks deeply.

You say (in common), 'Then unjaded - and I do not know why he would think I am a rock - '.
You say (in common), 'and now he says I am a goat!'.

Ghazkull grumbles.

You say (in common), 'after saying I had much to teach him and he had much to teach me'.
You say (in common), 'and that I was wrong to trust you and believe you'.

Ghazkull blinks.

You say (in common), 'because I said you think I smell like pastry'.

Samiyah shakes her head in frustration.

The Crest of Took Hill
[Exits: north south up]
The sky is cloudless and a warm southerly breeze blows.
A statue of Bandobras Took stands by a small fountain.
(Dark Purple Aura) Venom is resting here.

>at venom l venom
Your gaze pans the height and breadth of what seems at first glance
to be a regular elven adventurer when your eyes catch some rather
odd details. His clothing and equipment are immaculately clean and
rather polished, discretely bearing the runes of magical enchantment.
Something is also a bit different in his posture, he stands very
stout and proper as though a high classed mannerism were natural.
His pupils are unnaturally huge and dilated, glinting with an evil that
cannot be totally veiled by his friendly smile.
There is a sense of unseen danger exuding from this seemingly weak
person.
Venom won't win any beauty contests.

You ftell, '*sighs and shakes her head silently to clear it*'.

Venom ftells, 'What troubles you Madam?'.

You ftell, '*frankly* You.'.
You ftell, 'But I think you already knew that.'.

Venom ftells, 'I just take a small kick from hearing you say it.'.

You ftell, '*rolls her eyes* Oh, I'm sure you do.'.
You ftell, 'You've weaseled your way into my thoughts. *half-whisper, half-hiss* I want you out.'.

Venom ftells, 'Weaseled? I've done no such thing. I would say more... snaked.'.

You ftell, '*shoots a hard look at Venom*'.

Venom ftells, '*buffs his nails upon his vest and blows them clean*'.

The Front Yard of The Trading Post
[Exits: east south west]
Sycora is here.
(Dark Purple Aura) Venom is here.

You now follow Venom.

Venom smiles happily.

Sycora looks at Venom.

Venom tells you (in common), ':P'.

You ftell, '*growls at the notice of Venom's company and retreats back into her temple*'.

Venom ftells, 'What can I say, women seem to flock to me...'.

You ftell, 'Yes...I'm sure a *snake* is exactly what they're after.'.

Venom ftells, 'No, like many women, that last one just wanted the money.'.

Venom ftells, 'I needed a thief.'.
Venom ftells, 'To retrieve my weapon.'.
Venom ftells, 'Which has repopped even bigger still. avg9'.

### [Somewhere, Samiyah looks thoughtful. 'The gem was like Seraph's, after all?']

Venom ftells, 'You're surprisingly cute when you're hiding pain.'.

Ghazkull ftells, '*blink*'.

You ftell, '*latches onto Venom's gaze, her eyes flashing brilliantly for a moment, and whispers* You know nothing about my pain.'.

Venom ftells, '*nods approvingly* No, Madam... I don't. '.

Venom ftells, 'I need to charm a ranger...'.
Venom ftells, 'This bread thing is irritating.'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'don't look at me'.

### [Somewhere, Samiyah bites her lower lip, glancing at you sideways, something on her mind.]

Ghazkull ftells, 'but I can make you all the steaks you need'.

Venom ftells, '*eyeballs Ghazkull*'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'just not right now'.

You ftell, '*narrows her gaze in warning at Venom*'.

Venom ftells, 'Ghazkull, can I ask you a personal question?'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'you can ask'.
Ghazkull ftells, 'whether I answer or not is another matter entirely'.

Venom ftells, 'Do you have a preferred type of blood to sate your thirst?'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'desert bard'.
Ghazkull ftells, 'although I never would'.

Venom ftells, 'I see....'.
Venom ftells, 'Well.. what preferred stock WOULD you drink of.'.
Venom ftells, '?'.

You [GS] tell Ghazkull, 'I want to know why he asked that.'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'may I ask why the interest?'.

Venom ftells, 'I'm just curious about various race flavours'.
Venom ftells, 'Do you have a preference?'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'I have only fed three times'.

Venom ftells, 'So which was the better taste?'.
Venom ftells, 'Other than bard, since you won't do that.'.

You ftell, '*scowls at Ghaz and mutters something inaudible*'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'my change was started by the desert bard, that same night I fed from a student at my original hometown'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'no, the best was a mix of mortal and immortal'.

Venom ftells, 'If you are thinking I might circumvent you and be turned elsewhere, forget it.'.

### [Somewhere, Samiyah glances at you, as she speaks to someone else about you.]

Venom ftells, 'I would do no such thing.'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'and I would refuse anyway'.

Venom ftells, 'That's not the nature of my curiosity'.

###Mephisto: Entered Game

Venom ftells, 'I simply wish to know which taste Ghazkull finds the most enjoyable...'.

You ftell, 'Immortal blood is the most delicious of all...to one who has not ascended.'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'mephisto couldn't work out why he couldn't unfetter me'.

You ftell, '*chuckle*'.

Venom ftells, 'Are you a pacifist?'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'at present'.

Venom ftells, 'I thought that affected it.'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'took him 2 days and countless wasted mana before he realized hehe'.

### [Somewhere, Samiyah looks angry and shakes her head. She mutters, 'I am NOT a goat! He is rude!']

Venom ftells, 'Ghazkull, you seem reluctant to speak about this.. Everything ok?'.

Ghazkull ftells, '(connected on my phone hard to keep up with multiple conversations)'.

Venom ftells, 'So would you mind telling me which taste you thought was best?'.

Ghazkull ftells, 'the mix of mortal/immortal as I already said'.

You [GS] tell Venom, '*sighs and runs a hand over her face, looking weary* I really don't want to fight. You just...'.

Venom tells you (in common), 'No decision has to be made now'.

You [GS] tell Venom, 'This isn't about that now, and you know it.'.

Venom prays, 'A decision doesn't have to be made there today either.'.

You [GS] tell Venom, '*searches your eyes for a long moment, then drops her gaze to your lips with a hesitant nod*'.

Ghazkull: Part II


The Lower Hall

You smile at him.

Ghazkull smiles happily.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'so where were we?'.

You say (in common), 'Venom is creepy, and I trust you.'.

You smile at him.

Ghazkull nods.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I do not know what his game is'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'he was quizzing me while we were talking'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'asking me what my favourite 'flavour' of blood is'.

Samiyah bursts out, 'He is trying to cast a spell on CORRI!!'

You say (in common), 'He bragged to me that he has a vial of her blood for his spells'.
You say (in common), 'and I warned her, but she isn't listening'.
You say (in common), 'because he hasn't hurt her directly yet'.

Ghazkull blinks.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'he was considering trying to charm me earlier'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'said he needed a ranger to make steaks whenever he wanted'.

Samiyah's brow furrows as she frowns, looking troubled.

You say (in common), 'If he does that..'.
You say (in common), 'I will follow him the rest of my days and HURT him.'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I would not let him'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'and DarkClaw would not let him either'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'she is very protective of me'.
Ghazkull snickers softly.

Samiyah says sadly, 'I think less of her that she let him charm Verminard.'

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'Verminard was willing'.
Ghazkull shrugs.

You say (in common), 'Because she yelled at me - over and over and over - about how I was letting Sahib make my decisions and take away my will..'.

You say (in common), 'and yet that is EXACTLY what Venom is doing to people'.

You sigh.

You say (in common), 'and he keeps saying he is talking to me by accident..'.
You say (in common), 'but he keeps doing it'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'well, on that note, we are a chaotic evil following, she lets us do what we like, within reason. Verminard was willing to be charmed'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I'm sure she would have stepped in if he hadn't been willing'.

Samiyah looks a bit deflated at the reminder of your alignment.

Ghazkull nods.

Samiyah nods a little bit.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'sometimes I wish we weren't as deeply red as we are.'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'but, we all find our homes in the strangest places'.

Samiyah smiles faintly at that and nods.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'were it not for Seraph's restoration, I would have had you pegged for neutrality'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'Unaligned is the same as Neutrality (in my mind)'.

You say (in common), 'I was forbidden by oath to ever follow a god-who-walks, or give oath to one not of the Desert. But Sahib is. I would have stayed true to that oath, except that it does not apply to Sahib since he is Desert.'.

Ghazkull nods.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'that is understandable'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I read your diary with interest the other day'.

You blink.
You say (in common), 'how did you read my diary?'.

Samiyah looks through her bags anxiously.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I found it laying on the ground, it called to me to read it, then it disappeared, just as suddenly. I will not speak of anything I read You have my word on that'.

Samiyah lets out a cry of distress.
Samiyah looks more frantically.

Samiyah turns a bag upside down, shaking it hard.

You say (in common), 'it's GONE!'.

Ghazkull blinks.

Samiyah looks again through each of her bags.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'it disappeared when I had finished, I assumed it had returned to you somehow'.

You shake your head.
You shake your head.

Samiyah searches again with shaking hands.

You say (in common), 'Ghazkull, it's not here..'.

Ghazkull blinks.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'it must have been missing for a while, the last entry was some time ago'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I do not have it though, I promise you that'.

Samiyah nods distractedly, still looking. "I have been so busy..."

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'we all have'.
Ghazkull utters the words, 'locate diary'
Ghazkull shakes his head.

Samiyah bites her lower lip in consternation.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'if it is with someone else then they are not with us at present'.

Samiyah turns her face so you will not see tears spring up in her eyes.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'did you know that it had magical properties?'.

You say (in common), 'no, it was just a book. I have been practicing writing, so that people will not think I am a desert barbarian that is uneduc.. not learned.'.

Ghazkull exclaims, 'you are not uneducated at all!'

You say (in common), 'Venom says I am.'.

You say (in common), 'and a flower and a rock and a goat and many other things and words I did not know.'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'a rock?'.

You nod.
You say (in common), 'unjade'.

You say (in common), 'isn't that a rock?'.

Ghazkull shakes his head.

You say (in common), 'Unjade?'.
You say (in common), 'it is green, yes?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'Jade is a green rock, yes'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'but I don't think he meant it that way'.

You say (in common), 'Oh.'.

Samiyah admits softly, embarrassed, 'He uses a lot of words I do not know.'

Ghazkull nods.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'There are several meanings for the word'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'the one I believe he means is, to be worn out or wearied, through overwork or overuse'.

You say (in common), unjade' ?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'unjaded'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'well, jaded means that'.

You say (in common), 'what does unjade mean?'.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I do not think it is an actual word'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'at least, I have not heard of it'.

Samiyah bites her lower lip and admits, 'I might be saying it wrong.'

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I think you mean 'unjaded.

You say (in common), 'Oh. yes. That was it.'.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I'm not quite sure what adding the 'un' to it does to the word, my definition was for 'jaded.
Ghazkull says (in elven), 'I would say to put it from your mind'.

Samiyah hmms.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'There is an old saying, 'Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'it's childish I know'.

You nod in recognition to him.

Ghazkull says (in elven), 'but it kind of rings true'.

You say (in common), 'he is just awful.'.

You tell DarkClaw (in common), '*chews on her lower lip contemplatively* .. then.. I let venom's meanness cause him to assume I did a thing that I did not do, and did not say I did not do that thing..and I shouldn't have. Trickery is not Good.'.

You tell Venom (in common), '*formally* I have been taught just now that letting you believe a thing without saying it is untrue, when it is untrue, is trickery. And I do not do trickery. So. I did not cast the pink. But I did laugh when you ran into it.'.

You tell DarkClaw (in common), 'not by my hand. *softly* I have not wanted .. conflict.. or .. or.. problems with the Lost. '.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, '*offers a sad smile, holding your gaze for a moment* But you chose your path, which conflicts with ours...unfortunately.'.

You tell DarkClaw (in common), 'That is true, Sayyida, but.. that does not mean I want to _seek out_ conflicts. What will be, will be, but that does not mean I want to hurry that.. I even acknowledged Belgarion, the last time I saw him. Though I think it just confused him very much.'.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, '*nod* I have yet to speak to him about it, though I did hear from Ghazkull. *sighs wearily* I never wanted us to be at odds with you, period.'.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, 'No...the cup did not help, at least not much. He was in terrible shape when he had audience with Cordir and I.'.

You tell DarkClaw (in common), 'nono... I mean... Sahib said that people were worried that I wanted to drink blood, because of a connection.. but we don't think there IS one - I just like him because.. he's .. He's Ghazkull. Not because he drank my blood. And yes -- He looked like week old goat meat that sat in the sun for a long time. But better now.'.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, 'Ah yes...that. I knew it was more than the blood bond. He is... gentle... kind and considerate.'.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, 'His thread was very weak.'.

DarkClaw [GS] tells you, '*softly* I'm glad you were not harmed...or changed in any way...from the cauldron.'.

A Path Through the Valley
[Exits: north east west]
The grass below you has been heavily trampled, and you can see large
hoof prints in patches of soft dirt, leaving little doubt centaurs
have passed through here recently. To the east, a solitary oak tree
rises up out of the tall grass. The path continues north or to the west,
toward a collection of stone buildings in the southwest corner of the
valley.
The sky is cloudy and a cold northern gust blows.
(Pink Aura) Corri, The Past Supreme Finder, is here.
Your ears tingle slightly.

You say (in common), 'Then, I realized it might be wrong to do so. I asked Sayyida DarkClaw if it was a lie and she said it was trickery so I apologized to him. That was his pay back - telling me I looked good in pink. It is what I said to him.'.
