Reverence and Veneration


A light, delicate touch brushes across your eyes.
Cordir has granted Kennet the ability to see her when she is invisible.

Kennet wakes and stands up.

A Small Temple
[Exits: west]
This temple is small and plain for a temple, but you sense a certain
peacefulness here. The walls are made of stone and many torches line the
walls. A painting of War'loov hangs on the eastern wall.
(Invis 73) (Intense Light Green Aura) [GS] Cordir is here.

Cordir says, 'were you?'.
Cordir says, 'I have been found.'.

Kennet says (in common), 'I'm doing rather well'.

Cordir smiles happily.

Kennet looks pointedly at himself:
A powerfully built minotaur towers over you. His shoulders are broad and strong, and the grip upon his crossbow is sure. As your gaze travels over his form, you notice an intricate tattoo of vines and leaves creeping up his forearm. Another mark crawls sinuously over the side of his throat, shaped somewhat like a spider's web. Yet another is embedded in his shoulders, flanks, and abdomen - runes in Duergar, one of the Sacred Regalia of his faith. His eyes are old and sad. They have seen much of life, of death, of time's passage. He bows slightly, murmuring, 'Kennet D'augustine, at your service...'

Kennet won't win any beauty contests.
Kennet is slightly injured.

Kennet is using:
<worn on body> an immense Elder Sign
<worn on legs> the Pact to the Triat
<worn about body> the Ward of the Triat
<worn with pride> the Ebon Sigil Odegra

Kennet says (in common), 'I got a lot of my stuff back!'.

Cordir's gaze softens as she sees the Ward and Sigil.

Kennet smiles happily.

Cordir smiles further at the Elder sign and Pact.

Kennet gets a serious look and kneels.

Cordir blinks.

Cordir nods.
Cordir says, 'I know... Brother.' (with extra emphasis on the filial term)

Kennet says (in common), 'I have been told there is a way, in the realm these days'.

Cordir smiles at Kennet.
Cordir says, 'A way for...?'.

Kennet says (in common), 'For me to continue to show... '.

Kennet trips over his words.
Kennet says (in common), 'Perhaps it would be easier if I simply demonstrated'.

Kennet expresses his reverence and veneration towards Cordir!
Kennet bows his head in her direction.

Cordir closes Her eyes, overcome briefly with emotion.

Kennet says (in common), 'That'.

Cordir says quietly, Her voice dusky with tears, '..That. I am, as always, honored.'

Kennet says (in common), 'Though the world changes around us, I will always seek to protect you, Sister'.

Cordir says, 'Kennet... My Champion and brother... Please get up off the floor...'.
Cordir smiles crookedly.

Kennet stands.
Kennet hugs Cordir.

Cordir nods. ".. and I know. Which is why I needed everyone to know what you had done for me."

Cordir hugs Kennet.

Kennet looks sad for a moment.
Kennet fingers the rings on his hand, as if something isn't quite right.
Kennet shakes his head, 'I'll find the rest again someday'

Cordir says, 'There those who will gladly help you if they but know your needs.'.

Kennet nods.
Kennet says (in common), 'I need but to be patient, and cunning And I'm nothing if not cunning'.

Cordir smiles happily.
Cordir says, 'Capable, honorable, humorous, stalwart... Those are the words I would have chosen first.'.

Kennet says (in common), 'I must depart for a time'.

Cordir nods.
Cordir says, 'be well.'.

Kennet says (in common), 'I'm glad I got to see you'.

Kennet hugs Cordir.

Cordir says, 'Thank you, for your renewed faith in Me. It means more than you could possibly know. It is truly good to have you in the world once more.'.

Cordir hugs Kennet.

Kennet gives a jaunty nod, and sneaks out of the room before she notices his tears.

Fare thee well!

Entrance to a Dark Tunnel
Darkness surrounds you and makes you feel a bit uncomfortable, sort of like the world has swallowed you up and cut off all your air. The musty air only serves to heighten the feeling. This feeling isn't hell, but it sure is close. Looking around as your eyes adjust to the darkness, you can discern there is a trapdoor above you and that the tunnel heads off east.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *sends flashes of incoherent images and a sensation of casual interest*

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I don't intend to... I just think she's kinda cute'.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *one of the images resolves to show Sabella, nipple rings standing out sharply against her top, and a sense of amusement*

Asterius looks down and says, 'I mentioned the other day that I'm not the jealous type'

Asterius continues, 'But I know that's not true of all people, and I know even less about the thoughts and wishes of Ancient Kindred'.

Asterius looks up, 'such as you'.

DarkClaw asks softly and carefully. "You wish to play with her?"

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I don't know, but let's say I wouldn't mind buttering her up a bit. If nothing else, she looks like she'd be the kind of person to be extremely entertaining at parties'.

A thundering voice screams, 'HOW DARE YOU DESECRATE HOLY GROUND!'

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '.. Ah. Very well then.'.

reach'.

DarkClaw says, 'You wouldn't be throwing away anything, would you?'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I would believe you, if not for the look on your face'.

DarkClaw smiles at him softly.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I do not wish your consent... but instead to know your heart. Would it bother you if I had..? Not to bind, but to choose my path'.

DarkClaw sighs and looks back to the hearth. "Not even I know my heart anymore."


The Pain of The Past


Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I was careless. Forgive me?'.
Asterius leans forward.

DarkClaw drops her gaze thoughtfully, gathering her words.
DarkClaw says, 'It is...complicated.'.

Asterius stills, a tear dropping from his chin.
Asterius nods solemnly.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I should not have asked, not tonight of all times'.

DarkClaw says, 'Why not tonight?'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Not so soon after...'.
Asterius whispers, 'the unpleasantness at the end of last night'.

DarkClaw blurts out, "I am still healing from the scars left by Venom. I want nothing more than to forget
about him..."

DarkClaw whispers, "And I..."
DarkClaw blows out a breath.
DarkClaw says, 'I should not even be thinking along these lines.'.

Asterius reaches out a hand to rest it on her leg, then pulls it back.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I would do anything to take that hurt away'.

Asterius shakes his head, 'If only it were possible...', and sighs.

DarkClaw shakes her head quickly. "I fear becoming too attached to another, yet I crave it."

Asterius nods slowly and then says, barely audible, 'and I fear you casting me aside'

Asterius whispers, 'for I do not think I could bear it'
Asterius's shoulders begin to shake as tears roll down his cheeks.

DarkClaw reaches out and draws him into her arms, pulling him close. "Why do you think I would cast you
aside?"

Asterius shakes in your arms, unable to speak.

DarkClaw says, 'Tell me, Asterius...'.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *flashes of Asterius' past, discarded by his parents, shunned by the villagers*

DarkClaw says, 'Do you know what it is you want from...'.
DarkClaw pauses to take in the images, piecing them together.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *blood. hunger. thirst. fighting for scraps. drinking the blood of the maids in the fortress* *farther back, a starving child, fighting for scraps outside the fortress walls* *cast out again* *fear, thirst* *himself in your temple, on his knees*

Asterius wails, 'I can't stop it!'

Asterius bites his own hand, blood spilling down as he tries to feed.

DarkClaw hugs him close, one hand taking his from his lips as she whispers, "Feed from me."

Asterius whimpers and bites down on her hand.

DarkClaw winces and takes in a breath between clenched teeth.

Asterius feeds, frantic at first, then the shaking subsides as his feeding slows.
Asterius twitches as he comes to his senses, tearing away from your hand.

Asterius says, exhausted, 'what...'
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'how did I get... What did I do..?'.

DarkClaw brings her own hand to her lips and seals the wounds closed, watching as the torn open flesh mends
itself together.

Asterius watches disbelieving.

DarkClaw says simply, "You fed."

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I remember crying...'.
Asterius looks embarrassed and sad.

Asterius mumbles, 'it's like yesterday all over again… Sabella was teasing me... and I lost control… I fed over and over from the servants in the fortress.. I couldn't stop.'

DarkClaw frowns at his words, drawing a hand repeatedly through his mane, soothing him.
DarkClaw says, 'You are fighting for control. I have faith in your ability to overcome.'.

DarkClaw decides to let her earlier question wait till another time.

Asterius rests his cheek against her side.

DarkClaw says, 'You suffered much.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I'm sorry about your hand. And the furs...', and gestures to the blood still dripping from his hand.

DarkClaw grins quickly and chuckles. "My hand is already healed. Furs are replaceable."

Asterius gets an apron from a backpack.

DarkClaw stays his hand.

Asterius looks up at her.

DarkClaw stares into his eyes while bringing his hand to her lips and taking a small drink, then licking
over the torn flesh.

Asterius gives her an uncertain smile.


What It Is He Wants


DarkClaw sighs softly, noticing your reaction. "Is this about last night?"
DarkClaw says, 'About Spar?'.

Asterius gulps and whispers, 'maybe...'
Asterius whispers, 'I don't know. I don't think so?'

DarkClaw says, 'Spar chose to leave of his own accord. I did not cast him aside.'.

Asterius shakes his head gently.
Asterius whispers, 'I know'

DarkClaw says, '...Are you unsure what you want from us?'.

Asterius whispers, 'No. I know what I want. I just got scared all of a sudden that I was screwing things up'

DarkClaw hesitates again, unsure if she even wishes to know. "...What is it that you want?"

Asterius whispers, 'then I got scared that me being scared was screwing things up even worse, then I think I blacked out'

DarkClaw frowns at his words.

Asterius takes a slow calming breath.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I don't want to push... '.

Asterius whispers to himself, 'that's not what you asked...'

Asterius takes another breath.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I want to be by your side'.

DarkClaw says, 'But you already are.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Everything else is....
Asterius holds up a cupcake, 'frosting'

Asterius eats a luscious chocolate frosted cupcake.
Asterius looks pensive.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *flashes of shame at dishonesty'*

Asterius stiffens his shoulders.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I want you, Milady. You inside me. Me inside you. Owned. Possessed. '.

Asterius whispers, 'But I will take what I can get'

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *pride and fear and the truth*

DarkClaw searches your eyes quietly as her walls lift enough to send a wave of uneasiness and hope(?) through
the bond. "...Hearts as well?"

Asterius whispers into her dress, 'Hearts as well... but I can wait all my days for you to be ready'

DarkClaw bites her lower lip, drawing blood, the scent reaching his nostrils quickly, her pulse quickening.

Asterius presses his hands into his sides.

Through the Maker Bond: Images of cruel sex, a bloodied and beaten Star, spread naked upon the ice...a hand holding a cross as it burns the flesh of her backside...

Asterius startles, eyes widening.

Through the Maker Bond:...fangs tearing mercilessly at her throat...
Through the Maker Bond: A hand squeezing her neck brutally...

Asterius throws a hand up in front of him and gags.

Through the Maker Bond: Yet love...transfers through the bond, faint but still present.

Asterius struggles for breath, unable to separate himself from the visions, eyes darting back and forth
unseeing.

Through the Maker Bond: Then a stronger sense of hatred and betrayal.

Asterius takes a gasping breath and roars.

DarkClaw slams the walls shut, realizing the transference, and she pulls away abruptly, standing.

Asterius stumbles to the floor, panting for breath.

DarkClaw grins and bares her fangs. Tendrils of fog rise from the ground, twisting their way up and around
her form to shroud it from view.

Asterius curls up on the floor as tears leak silently down.


The Wounds Run Deep


Asterius pulls himself to his feet.

DarkClaw emerges from a thick layer of mist as it dissipates and seeps into the ground, a soft whisper filling
the area.

Asterius looks about uncertainly.
Asterius gulps and steps slowly towards her.

DarkClaw stands close to the office door, eying you cautiously. "I'm sorry, I just...I shouldn't have allowed
you to witness that."

Asterius stops and looks down.
Asterius runs his hands down his sides, smoothing his fur into place.

Asterius says (in common), 'I'm sorry'.

DarkClaw says softly, "You've nothing to apologize for."

Asterius looks uncertain.

DarkClaw steps closer to him, stopping an arm's length away. "I want nothing more than to forget...him. But the wounds run deep.”

Asterius whispers, 'I think I'd hoped that... with enough time... I, too, might forget. But it doesn't work
that way, does it..?'

Asterius reaches slowly up to brush his finger against her lip.

DarkClaw's eyes half close at his comforting touch. "No, but...perhaps we could bury the memories so deeply
they are unlikely to trouble us again."

Asterius takes the last step, closing the distance between her and rubbing his cheek against hers.

DarkClaw sighs softly against his fur and presses into him, settling into his arms. "I'm not always such a
mess...not always so...soft."

Asterius wraps his arms around her.
Asterius says (in common), 'Nor I. Is it always so difficult..?'.

DarkClaw says, 'Hmm? Is what always so difficult?'.

Asterius says (in common), 'The change..?'.

Asterius whispers, 'relation... ships?'

DarkClaw says, 'The change is different for each Kindred. Relationships, however...I've always found complicated. But it is said that things worth having require fighting for.'.

Asterius stifles a chuckle, 'mating was always so... easy'

Asterius sighs, coming to realize just how little he has seen of the world.

DarkClaw smiles faintly, remembering her younger years.
DarkClaw steps back away from him and runs a hand swiftly through her hair. "What now?"

Asterius shakes his head and half giggles, 'I have no idea'


For Comfort’s Sake


Asterius looks thoughtful and takes a breath.
Asterius says (in common), 'although... Would you feed from me again? I find it... peaceful... calming...'.

DarkClaw grins, the firelight catching the tips of her fangs briefly. "Those are not words that come to mind
for me when I'm being fed from."

Asterius smiles, 'there are other sensations... emotions... as well... but they all lead to languid, tired,
and peaceful'

DarkClaw rubs her nose over the pulse in his neck, inhaling his scent deeply and purring.

Asterius sighs contentedly.

DarkClaw slowly lowers herself to the furs once more, tugging to ease him down alongside her.

Asterius slides down, following her lead.

DarkClaw drapes an arm and leg over him, tangling her limbs with his and running one of her palms over the
opposite side of his jaw.

Asterius relaxes into her embrace, closing his eyes and slowing his breathing.

Asterius concentrates...

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond: *flashes of you on top of him, riding him*

Asterius's pulse starts to quicken, the vein thudding in his neck.
Asterius takes a slow, shuddering breath and moans softly.

DarkClaw growls softly at the memory from last night, lips moving over the pulsating vein, fangs finally
embedding in his hide.

Asterius gasps with pleasure and moans, rumbling deep in his chest.

Through the Maker Bond: A feeling of togetherness...oneness...fills the bond completely, smothering any existing doubt or negative emotions.

Through the Chyld/Maker Bond:'*stars in the nights sky*
Through the Chyld/Maker Bond:'*a sense that everything is right in the worlds, the stars flowing across the night sky in perfect order*

Asterius whispers, 'thank you'

DarkClaw feeds slowly from his sustenance, taking her time, drawing out the pleasure and shared intimacy.

Asterius reaches up to stroke her hip, reveling in the sensations.

DarkClaw purrs and rubs her leg against his then finally eases back, not wanting to take too much.

Asterius blinks drowsily.
Asterius slides his hand down to her ass, squeezing it and chuckling softly.

Asterius says quietly, 'I know thinking about that night helped me get my pulse to jump for you... but did
you see it as well? It almost felt like I was able to.. send.. what I wanted you to see'

DarkClaw whispers, "I saw it...felt it...even smelled your blood stronger as it coursed through your veins."

Asterius smiles happily.

DarkClaw continues, "It calls to me like none other's."
DarkClaw blinks and frowns.

Asterius murmurs, 'hmm..?'
Asterius slides his hand across her hip to check for suspicious felines, or other furry things.

DarkClaw shakes it off and rests her head against his shoulder, blood still trickling from his throat, its
scent calming her.

Asterius murmurs happily.

DarkClaw rubs her cheek against you and whispers, "Sleep, love."

As Asterius drifts off, he flashes an impudent grin and murmurs sleepily, 'yes Milady.

Bags and Bunnies

DarkClaw says, 'Tirpitz?'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Yes! That was it. Wasn't quite sure why'.

DarkClaw grins evilly.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'it's quite stylish, but he didn't seem to want it'.

DarkClaw says, 'Very old, old friend.'.

DarkClaw accepts the sacrifice you carry.
DarkClaw gives you a gold coin for your sacrifice.

DarkClaw puts a razor-sharp carrot-on-a-stick in a crystalline prism.

DarkClaw says, 'You got another level!'.

Asterius blushes.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'uh huh'.

Asterius pokes a hoof in the furs, 'only one practice...'
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'but 24 hit points'.

DarkClaw says, 'Forgive me for the late notice, but congrats.'.

Asterius smiles happily.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Tell me I shouldn't tease you before I go'.

DarkClaw narrows her gaze and smirks. "If I do that, then you will."

Asterius is almost always looking for a spanking...

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'No I wouldn't... I'd be *shudder* good.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'See, that would be even crueler'.

<they both wander around outside>

What's bothering you?

The Ones That Got Away...


Sabella gossips (in common), 'Hello, darlings.'.

Elistan arrives from the east.

Ghazkull gossips (in common), 'Good evening, Sabella.'.

Sabella gossips (in common), '.. Hello, Kindred.'.

Asterius arrives from the east.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Oh dear...'.
Asterius blushes scarlet.

Asterius leaves east.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '*in a low chuckle* What's wrong?'.

(Asterius flees, and Sabella stalks the guild looking for him.)

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Ahem, nothing...'.
Asterius tells Sabella (in common), 'Ahem, nothing...'.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '.. my tongue is capable of twisting around every language. Speak as you like.'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'mrfle'.

Sabella looks at Ghazkull.

There are few things in this world with the grace and beauty of an Elf -- as if
the distant stars themselves had come to life. The man before you is such a one.
He has the height of many of his kind, but his frame bears more muscle than the
norm for the children of Loth-Llorien. Perhaps it is due to a life of adventure
or from the unlife he was reborn into as one of the Kindred. His full lips are
curved in a wry smile, the points of his fangs visible, but his eyes are gentle
hazel, not the angry crimson of a vampire in need of sating. With a courtly bow,
he acknowledges your notice. He murmurs a polite greeting in his native tongue.
As he brushes back the well-groomed and artfully braided silvery tumble of knee
length hair that cascaded forward when he bowed, a vivid, ugly scar is revealed
upon his brow. It is an eternal reminder of the terror that led to his Embrace,
and all that has passed between then and now. A subtle shift in the air nearby
causes his eyes to briefly close, an intimate smile curving his lips. He seems
to have a brief moment of communion with some unseen creature and then his eyes
meet yours once more.
Ghazkull could sell you the Bog and you would thank him.
Ghazkull is in perfect health.

Sabella says (in common), 'Hello.'.

Ghazkull nods respectfuly to You.

Sabella murmurs sotto voce, '.. oh one that got away..'

Sabella gives him a slightly predatory look.

Anima raises an eyebrow.

Sabella tilts her head to one side, regarding the mysterious figure.

Ghazkull blinks, momentarily startled at her words before his composure returns.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Ahem. May I ask... where perchance did you find your... jwelry?'.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), 'It was crafted by a Patron as a gift.'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Aah, I was afraid so'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Does your patron need a little extra muscle?'.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '*a touch of sorrow is audible for only the briefest moment* .. He does not, no. And he is no longer my patron.'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Oh... I'm sorry.'.

Sabella glances over at Ghazkull.

Sabella walks in a slow circle around the weary Kindred, the sound of her heels loud in the echoing hallway.

Ghazkull's head twitches slightly as the Angel leans in to whisper something in his ear.

Sabella sips from her goblet, slaking one thirst.

Elistan arrives from the south.
The zombie arrives from the south.

The zombie rests.
Elistan leaves east.

The zombie's sores fester.
The zombie's disease hits herself.

The zombie regains her footing.

You tell Elistan (in common), '*in a soft pout* Would you mind being a dear and bringing your friend somewhere else, please?'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'I don't suppose you have need of... *trails off*'.

The zombie's sores fester.
The zombie's disease hits herself.

You tell Elistan (in common), 'Her festering pustules are spattering ooze everywhere... '.

Elistan arrives from the east.
The zombie prays for transportation.
The zombie disappears in a black mushroom cloud.

Elistan tells you (in common), 'ack'.
Elistan tells you (in common), 'my bad'.

Elistan leaves east.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '... I have many needs... which are you referencing? '.

A magical spring flows from the ground.

Sabella washes the zombie ooze from her shoes.

Asterius gossips (in minotaur), 'Good night Ghazkull'.

Sabella says (in common), 'good night, Ghazkull Mahsong.'.

Sabella looks at Ghazkull, intent in her gaze.

Ghazkull bows deeply to Sabella, allowing his braid and mark to show, before departing.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), 'in a gentle voice with a slight undercurrent of disappointment to it: I asked you a question...'.

Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), 'Umm... I'm... negotiating'.
Asterius tells Sabella (in minotaur), '... with someone else...'.

Sabella tells Asterius (in common), '.. Ah. Very well then.'.


Armadillo-like Accoutrements and Access Panels


The Lower Hall
[Exits: north up]
(Dark Cyan Aura) Mnaramenth is here.
Mish Leigh Salvandor will use her contacts to help you... for a price.

Sabella looks at Mnaramenth

It's a beautiful day, isn't it? Birds singing, big puffy clouds..wait...do you detect the scent of alcohol? Here? And what IS that whistling noise filling the air...?

Suddenly, you hear loud cracking noises, and there is an explosion to your right, sending dirt and splinters everywhere. You lie there, dazed, for a moment, before collecting your thoughts....namely, What the hell was that?!

You see to your left a large tree trunk that nearly hit you....it's trunk is shattered, as if hit with a large rock...which brings you to that explosion...you begin to move towards the crater and you hear a noice...metallic tinkling, light clanking, and sounds of many things ringing as they jumble into one another...and a tall form, heavily armored, pulls itself from the crater...

Mnaramenth raises his fist to the sky in fury. Mnaramenth shouts (in draconic),'Yeh durn lizard! Yeh wohn' be shakin' me so easily next time, I'm tellin yeh!'

The form dusts itself off, and you can make out the details now...pointed ears, bright orange and blonde streaked hair. You see his eyes are a very bright, piercing blue...and his armor is extremely heavy looking, and appears well taken care of. The kind of armor you'd expect to make a pretty solid wall if you tried to hit it...no wonder that tree is in such rough shape now.

Mnaramenth says (in elven), 'Hmmm...are you alright there? Looks like I almost hit you...' and snickers to himself.

Mnaramenth pulls a mug out of a bag and utters the words 'Watz Brre'. He then hands you the now full mug.

Mnaramenth says (in common), 'Therr yeh be goin'...yeh should be alrigh' noow...an' iff'n yeh'll be excusin' meself, I's gots a dragon what I owe summat!

Mnaramenth is built like a TANK!
Mnaramenth could sell you the Bog and you would thank him.
Mnaramenth shows little sign of injury.

Sabella says (in common), 'well.. Hello...'.
Sabella says (in common), 'Aren't you a pretty golem...'.

Mnaramenth chuckles, evidently amused.

Sabella pertly raps with her knuckles upon your hard outer shell.

Mnaramenth says (in common), 'I be doin' lots o' deflectin' an' whatsists'.

Sabella says (in common), 'I would imagine that would be so.'.

Sabella twirls a sable lock of hair around one finger as she thinks.

Sabella says (in common), 'I do see some disadvantages to your armadillo-like accoutrements.'.

Mnaramenth says (in common), 'Pfeh, a proper warric should be deflectin.

Sabella says (in common), 'How is a lady supposed to make an improper advance when it requires pliers and a can opener?'.

Mnaramenth sits down and thinks deeply.
Mnaramenth says (in common), 'well, you aren't noticing the proper access panels...'.

Mnaramenth grabs her hand and places it.
Mnaramenth says (in common), 'like, here'.
Mnaramenth says (in common), 'easy access points'.

Mnaramenth nods at himself; he must be getting senile.
Mnaramenth coughs.

Sabella allows her fingers to explore in depths a moment.

Mnaramenth forgot he wasn't speaking a proper language.

Sabella drags her nails, just barely making contact against the sensitive skin.

Mnaramenth purrs contentedly in his lap.

Sabella smiles wickedly at Mnaramenth.

Sabella allows her fingers to trail more lightly over the skin she has been granted access to.

Sabella sips some cool water from her goblet.

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.
(Hide) (Dark Purple Aura) Anima is here.
(Dark Cyan Aura) Mnaramenth is here.
Mish Leigh Salvandor will use her contacts to help you... for a price.

Sabella glances at the shrouded figure and murmurs quietly, 'The blessings of Lord Nash upon you.'

Anima bows before you.

Mnaramenth says 'this one is without voice, thank you for your words'.

Anima grins mischeviously.

Sabella places one hand on her chest, just below the pool of her throat, inclines her head, and curtseys.

Mnaramenth scratches his head.

Sabella twirls a sable lock of hair around one finger as she thinks.

Anima scratches Mnaramenth's head.

Sabella says (in common), 'Did you sacrifice your tongue to Lord Nash's greatness?'.

Anima nods.

Mish says 'for this one speach can be achieved, but the cost is great'.

Mnaramenth hands Anima some spare sewing thread.

Anima thanks Mnaramenth heartily.

Anima grunts.

Sabella takes her leave..

Fare thee well!
