Regiji grins, the proceeds to pull a second steak out from behind the hound's ear. He dangles it in front of the canine's nose.

"Both, actually," Regiji responds to Ellear. "I've seen a talking penguin and moose. And a gaggle of anthropomorphic foxes and wolves. Can't say I've run across any other cat people since I came here, but who knows," Regiji shrugs. "It's a very large, very strange place. Who knows what you'll find if you look long enough."

Ellear Ias
2006-12-27, 03:33 PM
Ellear's eyes grow wide and she looks at Karaki.
"How would I go about finding this temple?"
Her tail swishes in excitement.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 03:34 PM
Maal shrugs and turns back to his drink.

McBish
2006-12-27, 03:35 PM
The hound bites the steak being careful not to catch the steak guys hand. He quickly tears into it.

Karaki points to the Mirror. "Go forth through that mirror and not really a mirror, it is a link between these two places." He then points to the door. "Alternativly, leave this building unto the streets, then up the road and turn into the Temple Quarter, within is Pagonda, that is the Fox-Temple of Inari."

Jesion finishes off the bamhacon and closes her eyes for a catnap, until Lillah wants to leave.

Ellear Ias
2006-12-27, 03:42 PM
Ellear looks nervously at the mirror.
"So that is where this mirror leads... Thank you very much for this information. This may make my quest a good deal easier."
She gives a small wave to the patrons and, closing her eyes tightly, hops into the mirror.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 03:42 PM
Maal finally decides that he is dry, but glances at the sodden cloak and shirt on the floor and sighs.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 03:43 PM
Karaki smiles and turns back to his drink.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 03:48 PM
Regiji rubs the hound on the head as it busily devours its treat.

"Now... what's a relatively mundane animal like yourself doing in a crazy place like this?" he doesn't really expect an answer, but he asks none the less.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 03:50 PM
Cosmo coughs and points out the fire again, and Maal simply glares at him once more.
No. I'm not going close to it.

McBish
2006-12-27, 03:52 PM
The hound quickly devours the steak, and doesn't anwser.

Lillah reachs down and pets the sleeping Dogla.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 03:53 PM
Karaki looks over at Maal, in slight confusion, before getting a drink off Cosmo again.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 03:54 PM
Cosmo mutters something about stubborn fishy types who stiff the waiters.

Maal picks up his cloak and looks it over, then considers it. He closes his eyes, concentrating.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 03:58 PM
Hey Regiji.

Regiji's head jerks up as if someone had just addressed him despite the fact that no such thing just took place.

"Yes Sal?"

I'm only starting to detect this now, but that warlock guy's fundamental constants don't match up with those in this realm.

Somewhere off in the distance a cat-girl is struck dead by a lightning bolt.

"So... he's not from around here," Regiji shrugs. "Doesn't seem that unusual. Neither is the tavern's bouncer."

That's one possibility. Though it may have to do with the eldritch energy he channels. That may also be throwing things off a bit.

Regiji shrugs and continues rubbing the dog.

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:00 PM
As Regiji rubs the hound he finds several scars on the hound.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:03 PM
Suddenly the water in Maal's cloak simply flings itself out of it and onto the floor. Maal reopens his eyes and puts the now dry cloak around his shoulders, then picks up his shirt.
Cosmo growls and goes to get a mop, intending to give it to Maal.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:07 PM
Karaki smiles and quickly casts Presiditization ((No I can't spell it. Sue me.)) to clean up the water before Cosmo gets back.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:10 PM
((*Brings out the Dancing Man to be his lawyer* :smallbiggrin:))

Maal repeats the process with his shirt, but before the second patch of water can be cleaned up he simply boils it in an instant.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:12 PM
Regiji pauses mid-rub and parts the hair a bit, noting the scarring. He gives the dog a quizzical look.

"With all the healing magic that could be brought to bear on you," he says as he begins to fumble about in his pack. "No one bothered to fix you up? Poor old guy."

He extracts a cylindrical object the end of which is twisted forward about forty five degrees and presses it to the hound's neck. It feels a little cold.

"This'll probably help heal you up next time someone sticks their teeth in you," Regiji says with a smile. He hasn't used the device yet, but he certainly appears to intend to.

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:13 PM
The hound tries to sniff the odd object.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:20 PM
The object, since it's being held by Regiji, still has a steak smell on it. The device itself smells like metal and ceramic and something alive, though not anything alive that is familiar. Oddly enough, Regiji smells much the same.

"Now hold still for a bit," Regiji chuckles, then presses the device to the hound again. It gives out a slight hissing sound and the hound feels a slight pinch. Hardly enough to bother such a great creature accustomed to the hunt. "There, that wasn't so bad, was it? Should help you heal up a little cleaner," Regiji says as he shoves the device back into his pack.

((Grants Fast Healing 1. How long is up to you =P))

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:21 PM
Maal pulls out his spellbook and begins studying it.
((Man, I just finished making my last avatar request, and I'm already looking for more...))

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:22 PM
The hound tries to sniff his neck but fails since his neck doesn't twist that way. He looks up at Regiji.

Lillah stands up and wakes Jesion. They head out the door.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:23 PM
Karaki smiles and sips his drink, looking around, then sighs.

"I am so dead."

Lord Magtok
2006-12-27, 04:23 PM
SASO leaves the tavern.
((You guys went through like 8 pages here since I was gone? Yikes.))

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:25 PM
((Raises hand tentatively in response to avatar making.))

Regiji chuckles and begins rubbing the hound's ear.

"I wonder where you came from anyway..." he glances up at the nearest NPC bar tender. "Does this dog belong to the tavern? Or is he with someone here?"

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:26 PM
Paige turns to Regiji "I don't know, he came in a couple of days ago. He has been hanging around the place since then." She shrugs.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:26 PM
((*Pounces on potential avatar request*))
Maal raises an eyebrow at Karaki.
Why do you say that?

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:34 PM
"Huh, that's strange," Regiji looks back to the hound again. "Sal, see if you can't synch me up with our fuzzy buddy's neural pathways. Maybe I can just ask where he came from."

Sure thing, Regiji.

...Done.

Just begin when you're ready.

[speak with animals]"Where did you come from, friend?"[/speak with animals]

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:35 PM
Karaki sighs.

"Arena battle. Once again pitted against an enemy.."

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:36 PM
The hounds looks around a bit then up at Regiji You talk?

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:38 PM
Maal looks amused.
Why are you even in the contest if you are so certain that you would lose?

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:40 PM
Karaki shrugs.

"My divine player was bored. And He didn't think people would have that high of an AC."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:41 PM
[speak with animals]"I do when I need to. What brings you to this place, aside from all the two legged creatures who give you food?"[/speak with animals]

Regiji takes note of the conversation regarding the Arena, but this is more important at the moment.

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:42 PM
{canine} It was cold outside. I came here after horse thing tipped over.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:43 PM
Not all of them do. Besides, there are a number of ways to reduce the effectiveness of an enemies armor.
Now, I don't plan on ever going into the arena, but if I did people would be having trouble.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:45 PM
Karaki sighs ands gets another drink of cosmo, before sipping at it gently.

"There are..." He sighs. "Don't know of any, don't know If I can use them..."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:48 PM
The hound is likely referring to a horse-drawn cart.

"I see...," Regiji responds, looking thoughtful for a moment. "Were there any creatures that walk on their hind legs like me in the horse thing that tipped over?"

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:49 PM
Maal raps his fingers on the table.
Get something to turn you invisible, or if you are good at hiding, something that gives you concealment.

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:49 PM
{canine}Yeah, Master was there and horse guy.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:51 PM
Karaki smiles faintly, before downing his drink and getting another.

"Doesn't help with the actual killing part."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:53 PM
"Now we're getting somewhere..."

"Did Master come to this warm place with you?"

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:54 PM
Oh? Why not?

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:54 PM
{canine}No.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 04:55 PM
Karaki sighs.

"I try and hit them. I can't hit them as their Armour is too good!"

He sighs.

"Gah! I fight for fun anyway."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 04:56 PM
Regiji looks somewhat concerned.

"Do you know where Master is?"

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 04:57 PM
Maal rolls his eyes.
You're hopeless. How can they defend against an attack they don't know is coming?

McBish
2006-12-27, 04:58 PM
{canine}Yeah. The hounds ears drop a bit and he seems sad.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 05:01 PM
Karaki shakes his head then looks at Maal.

"I don't know! I never understood that! Wait. Doesn't that just give me a sneak attack no bonus to attack or anything?"

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:02 PM
Thats the thing-
They can't if you do it right.
If you're hidden, they can't dodge it.
((Yay for flat footed AC!))

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:02 PM
Regiji signs, immediately picking up on the animal's emotion.

"If Master is unwell some here may be able to make Master well again. But you would need to show me where Master is.

McBish
2006-12-27, 05:03 PM
{canine}Master can't be helped master is gone.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:06 PM
Regiji nods and goes into the thinker position for a moment.

Has... Master died?

McBish
2006-12-27, 05:06 PM
{canine}Yeah, I sat by him but couldn't help.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 05:07 PM
Karaki seems slightly confused, but realisation dawns upon him.

"Ah right!"

((But it doesn't give a bonus to attack does it?))

((Oh wait... Didn't see edit))

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:08 PM
Cassandra walks into the Tavern and stops to shake off a bit of snow.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:09 PM
((No, but they don't get Dodge, Dex, or monk bonuses if they get them. Against most people that will be enough))
Maal shrugs.
It is easier for me, of course. All I have to do is hit a person, not hit a spot unprotected by armor.
Maal looks over to the door and a strange gleam enters his eyes.
Hello Cassandra.

Exachix
2006-12-27, 05:11 PM
((Ah. Unless they have Uncanny Dodge or whatever it is)).

Karaki smiles before leaving Maal with Cassandra. And falling suddenly asleep.

McBish
2006-12-27, 05:11 PM
((Actually monks do get there bonuses.))

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:11 PM
Hello Maal, as she walks over to him. How are you today?

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:13 PM
Regiji sighs and glances ups.

"Try a ring of True Strike if you're having trouble hitting things," he looks back to the hound.

There are some here who can make well one who has died. Show me where Master's body is and I can bring master back. I can ask them to try to make master well again.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:13 PM
((Curses! Stupid 3.5 changes... I'm pretty sure that is what messed me up))
I'm well. You?

McBish
2006-12-27, 05:15 PM
((sorry got to go.))

{canine}Can I sleep first? It gives a big yawn.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:16 PM
Doing pretty good, as she takes a seat near him.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:17 PM
Regiji pats the hound on the head again.

"Yes, you can show me where master is later.

Regiji looks up, then glances about the tavern. He sighs and shakes his head.

"I think this is very likely the most normal tragedy I've run across since I got here..."

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:17 PM
I'm glad to hear that.
Maal wonders if she has thought any more about becoming a warlock.
Learn anything new recently?

McBish
2006-12-27, 05:19 PM
The hound lays down by Regiji feet and slowly falls asleep.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:19 PM
Went out into the woods yesterday and dissected a small racoon. It was rather fascinating.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:23 PM
I see. What did you learn from that?
Maal looks slightly disgusted.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:25 PM
Cassandra looks at him curiously, I learn what's inside of it, how it functions and so forth. I find it all quite interesting.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:27 PM
Hmm.
Maal gets a glass of Black Shadow.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:28 PM
You find any more interesting information?

Calpurnia
2006-12-27, 05:30 PM
Hanna and Kirbyla (shown in my extra-shiny new sig pic!) enter the tavern, talking to each other telepathically. Kirbyla claims a table and Hanna orders their drinks- a Long Island Iced Tea and a green tea in an extra-small cup.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:35 PM
Well... actually, I've learned that in my journeys I have come full circle.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:36 PM
Regiji glances up as a new pair of individuals enters the tavern.

I'm picking up a high level of synchronized frontal cortex activity between those two. I believe they may be communicating telepathically. If you get closer I may be able to-

"Stop snooping Sal, I don't need to know what they're talking about," Regiji chides, apparently directed at no one.

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 05:37 PM
Kyrian wakes up, having finally sensed that Lillah and Jesion had been in Trog's. With a sigh, Kyrian gets up and leaves.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:38 PM
A full circle?

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:40 PM
Maal nods.
In a way. I met someone who had met me before.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:43 PM
That must have been interesting.

Calpurnia
2006-12-27, 05:44 PM
The pegataur heads back to the table and hands Kirbyla the tea. Silly chairs. These humanoids never think to furnish their public places with usable furniture. Cut them some slack, Hanna... You and Ezrika are probably the only pegataurs they're ever gotten. I know, I know...

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:46 PM
It was quite interesting. Apparently in this reality I have died.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:47 PM
Well then, you don't have to worry about meeting yourself. That could be rather awkward.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 05:49 PM
((This has been long overdue.))

Whoa! Regiji, that was saiyan!

Regiji diverts his attention to Kyrian. Meanwhile, Regiji's probe pokes its way out of his pack.

"A saiyan? I want to see!" the probe squeals excitedly.

Hey Regiji, what's the probe say about his power level?

Regiji snatches the probe out of mid-air.

"It's over nine thousand," the normally exuberant probe whispers.

"IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAND!!" Regiji yells and begins squeezing the probe in one hand.

What!? Nine thousand!?

"Stop smushing me!" the probe complains.

"Oh, er, sorry about that," Regiji responds sheepishly. "Don't know what came over me..."

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:50 PM
((That has been overdue. :biggrin:))

Maal nods to Cassandra.
Very awkward.

Hoseki
2006-12-27, 05:53 PM
Hannah and her pseudodragon companion give Regiji strange looks. Kirbyla drifts over. Ah, excuse me? What's over nine thousand?

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:53 PM
I've been giving your proposal quite some thought. I'm rather nervous about it all, but it sounds very tempting.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:55 PM
Maal smiles at her.
Would knowing exactly who you might be dealing with help?

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:56 PM
Yes, that would help.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 05:57 PM
Well, I could arrange that.
Maal looks around the tavern.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 05:59 PM
Okay, Where?

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 06:00 PM
When Kirbyla attempts to telepathically contact Regiji it feels like she just stuck her tongue against a shocking longsword as the mental energies get reverberated back at her in the form of random psychic static. Regiji doesn't seem to notice.

Regiji gives the psudodragon an odd look, then walks out the door of the tavern.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 06:02 PM
Well, if you don't mind I do have a room upstairs. Though if you think it improper we could go to the warehouse again.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 06:03 PM
I'm not really worried about that, upstairs is fine.

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 06:05 PM
Maal nods and goes upstairs.

wxdruid
2006-12-27, 06:09 PM
Cassandra follows him

Hoseki
2006-12-27, 06:15 PM
((Kirbyla's a girl.))

Kirbyla and Hanna wince as one, the pseudodragon hissing angrily and the pegataur grabbing her forehead. The pseudodragon flies back to her companion. What in that name of Perisidactyla was that? Augh... I have no idea. Some form of hostile mental shield? Pah. Bloody paranoid humanoids.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 06:36 PM
Regiji materializes in Trog's. There's no puff of smoke, no clap of thunder. First he isn't there, then he is. It's very jarring and makes one wonder what the special effects budget was wasted on.

Almost immediately he turns his attention to the decidedly non-human pair.

"I'm guessing one of you two tried to speak with me telepathically? Sorry about that. I should wear a sign or something..." it's difficult to tell whether he's serious or not. "My people have a somewhat... antagonistic response to the supernatural. It's not really anything that I can control or shut off. Can I get you something to make it up?"

Hoseki
2006-12-27, 06:40 PM
Hanna nods. "Yes. Kirbyla did... pseudodragons like her cannot communicate verbally.

"But it's fine... we were just wondering what was over nine thousand." Kirbyla's tail flicks through the air, making an ominous swishing noise.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 06:53 PM
I've never heard a tail manage to sound ominous when swishing before...

Regiji chuckles.

"Oh, that?" he smirks. "It's something of a reference (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBtpyeLxVkI) I picked up on one of my last excursions. The saiyan's 'power level' was over nine thousand. It's a metric they use to describe how proficient they are with their martial and supernatural abilities."

He thinks for a moment.

"I thought pseudodragons were able to make animal sounds and stuff?"

Hoseki
2006-12-27, 06:58 PM
((No, no. Hanna's the pegataur. Kirbyla, who has the ominous tail sound, is the pseudodragon.))

Hanna chuckles. "Since when are animal sounds really communication? I just meant it's not a language."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 07:02 PM
((My bad >< Edit GO!!))

"Well..." Regiji thinks for a moment. "I managed to carry on a conversation with the dog," Regiji jerks his thumb towards the sleeping hound. "That didn't seem to limit him at all."

"Eeerr... Is there anything else? Because I kind of have some business I need to attend to..."

Hoseki
2006-12-27, 07:04 PM
"No, no. Canine is a language. Pseudodragon isn't, because they're telepathic anyway. It would be redundant.

"And no, thanks for clarifying."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 07:10 PM
Regiji quirks an eyebrow.

"The Gal'thikari have a spoken language and they're telepathic," Regiji says somewhat absently, then waves one hand dismissivly. "That doesn't really matter though. I'm Regiji, I'll see you and your little pal around Town I suppose."

Regiji then vanishes with precisely the same amount of embellishment as he had appeared with. None at all.

Silas
2006-12-27, 08:19 PM
The door slams open. A man, six foot five, enters and looks around. He runs a hand through his spiked brown, blonde tipped, hair and sits at the bar.

"Hmm...a tavern..."

AmberVael
2006-12-27, 08:22 PM
((Hello and welcome to town!
Unless you're an alt, in which case: congratulations! You are now more like me! :P
I'd bring a character down to talk to you, but I'm a bit busy at the moment))

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 08:30 PM
A young man who appears to be in his mid-20s pops out from behind the bar clad in a blue tunic. He eyes the newcomer with interest.

"So... how do you get your hair to stick up like that?" he asks with a grin.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 08:34 PM
The door opens, and the Pirate King enters. He hangs his coat by the door and heads to the bar to fix himself a mug of cocoa, then does a double-take at the guy behind the bar.

"I should really come in here more often. Did Trog hire you or something?"

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 08:37 PM
"No, not really," Regiji responds as he vaults over the bar. "I just thought popping out from behind the bar would be more interesting than suddenly appearing in the middle of the room."

He brushes himself off a bit, then leans against a stool. Given his size, the stool should tip over immediately, but it seems rather loath to do so at the moment.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 08:39 PM
El J nods. "See, now that makes sense." He extends his hand. "El Jaspero, Pirate King and manager of Trog's."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 08:47 PM
Regiji accepts Jaspero's hand with a grin. As soon as the man comes in contact with him a personal anti-magic field can be noticed if Jaspero happens to be the sort to notice such things.

"I'm Regiji, former Central Consciousness of the prototype Inquisitor heavy weapons platform" he glances about conspiratorially. "Though, at the moment I'm on scouting duty. It was decided that it would be a good 'character building exercise'."

"Nice to meet you!" he says brightly.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 08:51 PM
((Anti-magic, duly noted. El J can read auras and such, and would note Regiji's lack thereof.))

El Jaspero smiles and nods. "I hope we've proven sufficently interesting?"

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 08:56 PM
"Oh most certainly," Regiji responds. "We've already been able to established a number of mutually beneficial relationships here. Just the sample of synthetic orahalcum we got from Destro has made the stay here worth it already."

Regiji shrugs.

"And I guess the whole character building part hasn't hurt me any either."

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 09:01 PM
"Yes, that's certainly true. If nothing else, this place will build character. And lots of them!"

El J chuckles and sips his cocoa. "Well, if you need anything in the piracy line, just say the word...or, if you're into jewelry, I'm married to Alarra and she's always happy to help a customer."

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 09:10 PM
"Well... my family isn't really into the piracy sort of thing, but thanks for the offer," Regiji responds politely, then glances over at the newcomer.

"Huh... should have warned him about the water..."

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 09:21 PM
The Pirate King frowns. "I thought we had that cleared up by now. Ah, well."

Silas
2006-12-27, 09:22 PM
The man looks up at the two talking, and then up even farther at the menu.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 09:36 PM
"So, like I was saying, how did you get your hair to stick up like that?" Regiji suddenly appears in the man's line of sight, directly between him and the menu.

He also happens to be hanging in mid-air. Upside down.

Silas
2006-12-27, 09:38 PM
"I use hair gel." The man gives Regiji a weird look and tries to go back to reading the menu.

Hawkeye
2006-12-27, 09:43 PM
Hawkeye enters the tavern and sits down at the bar "Beer over here please Cosmo, and hold the grumbling if you want a tip"

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 09:44 PM
Regiji begins to drift off to the side, he doesn't appear to notice.

"Huh... that's, well. Far more mundane than I would have expected. Considering how odd this place is I guess I was expecting it would be natural or a manifestation of your Awesome Power™ or something," Regiji ponders this new revelation for a moment, then settles back to the floor again, fortunately right-side up. "I guess it's kind of refreshing to run across something normal."

Silas
2006-12-27, 09:45 PM
The man looks down the bar at Hawkeye, and turns back to the menu.

"Hm...guess I'll have a beer as well."

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 09:45 PM
El J waves to Hawkeye with a chuckle. "You know how to give the poor fellow a tough choice, don't you?"

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 09:47 PM
Kyrian enters the tavern, and takes a seat at the bar next to Hawkeye.

'Lo, Hawkeye. How goes it?

Hawkeye
2006-12-27, 09:48 PM
Hawkeye grins "Aye El J, I've been in here enough times to know how to get the...best possible service out of Cosmo." he turns to Kyrian "Lo there Kyrian. I'm fine and I'm a bit worried about a certain person. So everythings usual." there's a slight bitter tone to his last sentance

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 09:50 PM
El J nods to Kyrian. "Ahoy there," he pauses. "Kyrian."

He grins at Hawkeye as the gnomish bartender shoots him a dirty look. "Yes, well...his best will have to do, I suppose."

Calpurnia
2006-12-27, 09:52 PM
Hanna and Kirbyla wake up suddenly. "Gah! Stupid... stupid whatever it was that made me fall asleep!"

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 09:53 PM
Jaspero... Kyrian sighs, not actually certain what he was going to say.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 09:56 PM
El J nods and sips his cocoa. "Kyrian, are you alright? You seem a bit down tonight."

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 09:58 PM
Lillah was kidnapped last night. That's why I left you and...Alarra so quickly. Apparently the person torturing her took my form at one point, because when I found her, she was frightened of me....and I'm worried that she still is.

Hawkeye
2006-12-27, 09:59 PM
Hawkeye winces and looks between Kyrian and El J. He absentmindly flips a gold piece to Cosmo (who is standing with his hand out for a tip).

Calpurnia
2006-12-27, 10:05 PM
The pegataur and her companion leave.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 10:07 PM
"Errr, excuse me, Kyrian was it?" Regiji begins somewhat uncertain of how to put what he has to say. "You may have missed something meant for your viewing pleasure back on page twelve (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1744125&postcount=334)."

The fourth wall gives a baleful groan and crumbles into a heap.

"Blast... hate it when that happens," he then glances over at the not-human pair who just came to. "It's the water apparently. It knocks people out."

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:08 PM
El J winces at Kyrian's story. "That's awful. Is she okay?"

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:12 PM
((Rebonak, read post #327 on page 11. That's why I didn't respond))

I don't know Jas...she asked me to...to stay here last night.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:15 PM
El J nods. "She might just need some space, some time to recover. You two are in love, aren't you? It will work out." He sips his cocoa.

"Do you need a place to sleep?"

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:17 PM
I've still got a room upstairs. Probably owe a fortune...I'll be fine. Besides, I don't want to burden you and Alarra anymore than I have these past couple of days.

Rebonack
2006-12-27, 10:18 PM
((I didn't expect much in the way of an IC response, just wanted to make sure you received your gag.))

Regiji stands up and gives a shallow bow to Jaspero. "Nice to meet you, sir."

He then heads out of the tavern humming to himself.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:25 PM
The Pirate King waves idly to the departing Regiji, but his focus remains on Kyrian. "You're not a burden, don't be absurd. It's just...it takes some getting used to, Kyrian. But if you want to stay with us you'd be welcome, of course." El J looks him in the eye. "You're family, after all."

Hawkeye
2006-12-27, 10:26 PM
Hawkeye's eyes suddenly widen "Gotta go" he disappears in a cloud of purple smoke

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:30 PM
I know it takes some time to get used to, and on some levels, I'm a little sorry that I seem to get used to it so quickly. I guess I can take you up on that offer.

Kyrian smiles.

Merant
2006-12-27, 10:33 PM
"Evening people" Merant walks into the Tavern scowling. He sits at the bar and summons an ale.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:35 PM
El J smiles and nods. "Good, I'm glad to hear it. I'm sure there's a spare bedroom or three...the place seems to produce them when they're needed or something." He thinks for a moment.

"I suppose this is easier for you to embrace so readily because you've been living with it all your life, you've been ready to find us for years. We...we never even knew."

He nods to Merant and takes a sip of cocoa.

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:37 PM
So...you got your own body again, eh Merant?

Merant
2006-12-27, 10:39 PM
Merant scowls at Kyrian "Yes. I have. And I'm not liking it. One. Bit."

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:41 PM
Sorry to hear that...I guess...

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:42 PM
El J raises an eyebrow at Merant. "Too tight across the shoulders?"

Merant
2006-12-27, 10:43 PM
"Save your pity for people that want it Ky." he glances at El J "I wish it was that simple"

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 10:49 PM
Kyrian shrugs, and orders a rootbeer from Cosmo. He tips the gnome when his drink arrives.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:51 PM
"Ah, yes." El J nods. "To tight in...other places." He sips his cocoa. "That would explain a lot about you."

Merant
2006-12-27, 10:55 PM
Merant glances at El J "Would you like it if you've been given LE god powers El J?"

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 10:59 PM
The Pirate King shrugs. "I'm sure Alarra would appreciate my being a bit more Lawful from time to time, at least. And just because you have unwanted god powers doesn't mean you have to use them. Sorta like appendixes."

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 11:00 PM
Kyrian finishes his drink.

I'll come by the shop later tonight Jaspero...and thanks.

He heads for the door.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 11:03 PM
El J nods in Kyrian's direction. "It's the least we can do, Kyrian. We'll be glad to have you."

Kyrian
2006-12-27, 11:04 PM
Kyrian nods and smiles as he leaves.

Merant
2006-12-27, 11:04 PM
Merant scowls again "I'm a god. I deserve to be a god. I deserve to have the power" he then growls "But LG powers? Come on be serious people, it's a smegging joke and disgrace I should not have been lumbered with these."

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 11:08 PM
El J scratches his chin. "Couldn't you find a cursed Good-aligned god to trade powers with or something? I'm sure all you various divine beings have some sort of cosmic message board for things like this, it can't be too hard."

Merant
2006-12-27, 11:15 PM
Merant glares at El J "The only reason that you are not reduced to a pair of smoking boots for your insolence is because of the fact that the smegging paladin code is telling me not to!" he punches the bar "Damn that woman, when I get my hands on her she'll wish she hadn't been born!"

Aniqua
2006-12-27, 11:19 PM
Aniqua enters the tavern. She takes a seat at the bar and orders a glass of water.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-27, 11:23 PM
"Paladin code, eh? Good luck with that, Merant. It must tear you up inside, giving money to orphans and such." El J drains his cocoa and stands up. "Remind me to get your obligated help next time I'm fighting demons."

He tips his hat to the room, puts on his coat and heads out into the night.

Merant
2006-12-27, 11:28 PM
Merant glares after El J "Oh just you wait...when I find a way around this I'll make you pay. I guarantee that." he disappears in a cloud of white smoke

Aniqua
2006-12-27, 11:32 PM
Aniqua watches as the two leave and sighs. Some people just don't know how to relax.

McBish
2006-12-27, 11:38 PM
The hound wakes up and looks around the tavern and starts searching for food again. ((If anyone wonders what the hound looks like google search Irish Wolfhounds.))

Aniqua
2006-12-27, 11:48 PM
Aniqua looks at the hound. Hey there big guy, you look hungry, want a little snack?

McBish
2006-12-27, 11:52 PM
The hound quickly moves over to Aniqua and looks up at her with his tounge hanging out of his mouth.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:00 AM
Aniqua smiles. I'll take that as a yes. She orders a plate of bamhacon and puts it on the floor in front of the dog.

wxdruid
2006-12-28, 12:01 AM
Cassandra comes down the stairs and quickly leaves the Tavern.

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:02 AM
The digs into the bamhacon eating it happily.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:10 AM
Aniqua watches the dog eat and smiles. She reaches out and pets it on the head.

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:14 AM
The hound finishes of the food and leans into Aniqua as she pets him.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:16 AM
So, do you have a name? Can you talk or are you the only normal animal in this entire town? Where did you come from? She stops. Do you want more bamhacon?

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:18 AM
The hound doesn't respond to any of the questions but seems quiet happy to be petted.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:23 AM
Aniqua continues to pet the hound with one hand and reaches for her glass of water with the other.

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:28 AM
If Aniqua pets him anywhere besides the head she will most likely find several scars on him.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:33 AM
Aniqua does in fact find one such scar. She stops petting for a moment. Oh dear, that feels like it must have hurt. How did you get injured so bad?

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:36 AM
The hound just looks up at her wondering why she stoped petting him.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:41 AM
Aniqua starts petting him again. It figures, the only one in this town who wants to be around me can't even talk. Oh well, it's probably better that way.

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 12:46 AM
Regiji steps out from behind a table that is far too small to have visually blocked his form. He's dressed in his normal blue tunic again despite the flames his previous attire had gone up in. He glances at the hound and grins.

"Well, it looks like the lost dog has found a new friend," Regiji says in a friendly tone as he approaches the pair.

McBish
2006-12-28, 12:47 AM
The hound looks over at steak man and wags his tail.

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 12:52 AM
Secret Agent Stick Omega walks into the bar, and takes a seat and mutters to himself.
Dang slow plotlines...can never get any action around here.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 12:53 AM
Aniqua looks up at Regiji. Hi there.

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 12:58 AM
Secret Agent Stick Omega orders a drink, and sips on it while thinking over everything that's happened to him so far.
Gotta get that Order of Evil...just as soon as Plot stops blocking the way...

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 12:59 AM
"I don't think I've seen you around here before, miss," Regiji responds, then looks to the hound.

"Have you found someone else to give you food? he smells a little of smoke, though the scent is faint.

McBish
2006-12-28, 01:00 AM
{canine}Yeah yeah, she is nice. She gave me food. The hounds tail wags.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 01:00 AM
My name's Aniqua. And I don't think I've ever seen you either. Do you know this dog?

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:05 AM
SASO seem sto be completely oblivious to what is going on, or just doesn't care.
That Magtok is going to pay for all those killings all over again...This time, he's not getting away...

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:06 AM
"You can call me Regiji," he responds with a smile. "I wouldn't say I know him per se, I've noticed him around the tavern the past couple days, so I asked him what he was up to. Apparently he was in some kind of accident with his master and one of the master's servants. The master lost his life in the snow, I don't know about the servant," Regiji nods toward the hound. "He found his way here. I'm going to see if he can take me to where the fellow died. I might be able to get the poor guys raised if all goes well."

Will you be ready to take me to Master tomorrow? The wind is biting outside now.

McBish
2006-12-28, 01:07 AM
{canine}Ok, I guess we can.

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:09 AM
SASO suddenly stops muttering to himself when he hears mention of death.
Sorry to butt in, but is there anything I can help with, sir and ma'am? You mentioned death, sir.

Aniqua
2006-12-28, 01:12 AM
Nice to meet you Regiji. She looks down at the hound. Don't worry, I know how it feels to lose someone you care about, although I can't say I've ever felt any real love for anyone calling thamselves "Master" but that's from personal experience. I hope you find you friend.

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:14 AM
We'll do that then. My master calls me Regiji. What did your master call you?

Regiji glances up at SASO, a look of recognition dancing across his face.

"Eerr, yes. It sounds like the dog's owner died in a snowdrift or something," Regiji responds, pointing at the hound. "I'm going to see if the hound can take me there. Get the poor guy raised."

He ponders for a moment.

"Weren't you one of those officers from earlier?"

McBish
2006-12-28, 01:14 AM
The hound looks up at the nice lady wondering what the weird person talk means.

{canine}He called me Boru.

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:18 AM
He takes a moment to pet the dog.
I was one of the officers.
You handled yourself well in a fight.

McBish
2006-12-28, 01:23 AM
SASO finds the hounds scars as well. The hound lays down in the center of the group letting all who want to pet him as he slowly falls asleep. ((Night all.))

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:24 AM
Then I will call you Boru. And you can call me Regiji.

Regiji shrugs.

"That wasn't so much of a fight as it was me trying to get an idiot to stop attacking people without kicking his head in," Regiji pauses and pats the hound on the head. "Apparently the dog's name is Boru..."

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:28 AM
What was with that archer guy anyway?
Boru, eh? Nice name...I guess.
It seems to have scars along its body...think its master abused it?

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:33 AM
"When I stepped out of Trog's he yelled 'Who goes there,' so I asked him what he was hollering about," Regiji shakes his head and chuckles. "He said that he thought someone might be sneaking around trying to kill him, so I attempted to explain why yelling at a would be assassin wouldn't do much good. He took that as some sort of challenge to fight and started lobbing fire arrows everywhere, you saw the rest."

He looks back at Boru again.

"I don't think so. I'm pretty certain he's a hunting breed, they may very well be bite marks."

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:38 AM
I hope you're right about the dog.
Sure would be awful if he was returned to a cruel master.
Any idea where the dog and master were headed?

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:45 AM
Regiji, I'm detecting a number of interesting electromagnetic fields around this guy's equipment. I believe he may be using Syth Tech.

"Yeah, I noticed that too, Sal," Regiji responds, apparently to no one.

"So Iames is on the police force? Why was he trying to kill him then?" Regiji asks quizzically. "Seems odd that such a powerful psion would try to kill the poor idiot instead of simply incapacitating him."

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:49 AM
I dunno, I haven't been an officer all that long.
Maybe Iames just has too much stress?
He has to bring order to the most chaotic town I've ever seen.
That can be stressful, I'm sure.

((SASO's gear was made by E-Razor, a corporation that died out when Magtok came into power in his dimension.
Its a long story.))

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 01:52 AM
Regiji laughs.

"I can imagine. So, I'm Regiji in case you were wondering. Who might you be?"

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 01:56 AM
I'm...well, I have no real name.
Being thawed out after being cyrogenically frozen took away those memories.
I call myself Secret Agent Stick Omega, as I worked for the good government as an undercover operative in my dimenson before it was crushed by an evil person named Magtok.

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 02:02 AM
(('Syth Tech' is a general term Regiji's people use for technology based on silicon and other semiconductors. That would be as opposed to Bio Tech.))

"Cryogenically frozen, huh?" Regiji responds slowly, his suspicions very confirmed at this point. "Your people hadn't figured out temporal stasis yet, then? It's much safer. And they don't need to stick you in one of those plastic baggies to prevent freezer burn."

He leans back in his chair a bit.

"You’re the second fellow I've seen packing Syth Tech around here, seems really out of place what with all the supernatural stuff," he waves one hand dismissivly.

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 02:08 AM
I know of temporal stasis.
Wasn't invented until a couple years after I came out of freezing.
I know I'm out of place here, but then again, who isn't?
By the way, whats Syth Tech?

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 02:12 AM
"Oh, sorry about using the jargon on you," Regiji replies, looking somewhat sheepish. "Synthetic Technology, machines that use digital processors and semiconductor-based circuits and the like."

He ponders for a moment.

"When I got dropped off here, I was at least given some reasonable clothing and gear to fit in. Did you wind up here unintentionally or something?"

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 02:20 AM
No, I chose to come here.
I had saved my world from Magtok, and figured Plot didn't need me there anymore.
So, I picked a random dimension, and decided to take a vacation, while my world rebuilds its society.
I figured my clothing and such wouldn't stand out that much, and if it did, it wouldn't matter.
Now that I think about it... I think inter-dimensional travel tampered with my memory.
Can't remember what was under Magtok's hood...

Rebonack
2006-12-28, 02:26 AM
"That was pretty noble of you," Regiji says with a slight yawn. "It was nice talking to you Mr. Omega, I'm going to go pick up a key for a room before my player passes out on the keyboard."

The still crumbled fourth wall moans pitifully.

Regiji requests and purchases a room for the night, then makes his way upstairs.

Exileman
2006-12-28, 02:30 AM
Arnok enters and looks around. Seeing what appeared to be the bar, he walks forward and speaks with what he thinks is the barkeep.

"Hello good tender of bars. If you would be so kind as to give me the low and down as to the local hood?

Lord Magtok
2006-12-28, 02:33 AM
SASO leaves the bar, and heads for the police station.

((Fraid you'll have to wait till tomorrow to get an answer out of anyone.))

Exachix
2006-12-28, 06:13 AM
Karaki wakes with a start and orders a Slurpee.

AmberVael
2006-12-28, 09:13 AM
Maal comes downstairs, spellbook in hand. He takes seat at the bar and flips it open to a certain page and begins reading.

Exachix
2006-12-28, 09:17 AM
Karaki waves as he comes down, and begins his routine. He gets a Bamhacon...

Silas
2006-12-28, 09:18 AM
The man wakes up at the bar, and looks around, wondering if he ever got his drink last night.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 09:21 AM
Kyrian enters the tavern, and takes a seat at a table, with a sigh. He puts his head in his hands and thinks, or tries not to.

AmberVael
2006-12-28, 09:27 AM
Maal yawns as a strange man comes through the mirror from Inari's. He has spines along his arms and down his legs, and his eyes glow a strange, vivid blue that might be recognizable to anyone who knows Earin. He scans the bar slowly, his face determined and possibly hostile.

Silas
2006-12-28, 09:29 AM
The man at the bar watches the newcomer, and seems to size him up.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 09:33 AM
Kyrian looks up, but doesn't seem to care much, as his mind is set on issues more troubling to him.

AmberVael
2006-12-28, 09:33 AM
This new man has a stiff, military air that pervades everything he does. His hand rests on the hilt of the sword on his belt. His hair is cut efficiently and cleanly, and his eyes calculate everything.
He seems to be getting a little irritated as he scans the tavern.

Silas
2006-12-28, 09:35 AM
The man gives a glare at the new man, and turns his back to the bar, so he can continue to watch.

wxdruid
2006-12-28, 09:36 AM
Gwen and Bolt come into the Tavern, both go over and sit by Kyrian. Gwen looks around at who's here this morning.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 09:37 AM
Hey Gwen...

Kyrian smiles sadly, and pets Bolt. Bolt purrs and curls up on both Gwen and Kyrian's feet.

AmberVael
2006-12-28, 09:40 AM
Maal leans against the bar, considering the new man, then becoming a bit interested in him as he notices something.

Anyone who can detect active magical effects begin to notice that there is something active around him, but it is very faint, and very unusual.
The stranger finishes his scan of the bar and tenses his jaw as he runs a hand along the spines on his arm.
Ist Vlan'tar.
He looks at Kyrian closely for a moment, then turns and moves with a precise, military step to one of the tables, where he stands behind one of the chairs, waiting.

wxdruid
2006-12-28, 09:41 AM
Hey Kyrian, she puts one arm around his shoulders.

Exachix
2006-12-28, 09:43 AM
Karaki looks over at the strange man and hmms.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 09:48 AM
Kyrian sighs and gives Gwen a small hug.

AmberVael
2006-12-28, 09:49 AM
Two more men, almost exactly like the first but without a strange headband that he wears, come through the mirror from Inari's and go over his table. He gives them a stern look, and one of them twitches his hand in an odd fashion. The first man flicks a hand towards the chairs and the other two sit down at his table, while he remains standing.
Its quite obvious by their mannerisms that they are from a very different culture.

Silas
2006-12-28, 09:50 AM
The man at the bar takes a sip of his beer, and watches these men.

Exachix
2006-12-28, 09:51 AM
Karaki sighs and orders another drink as he finishes his Bamhacon, before going into another seat at another table, so he is facing them. He watches them but doesn't show it, instead it appears he's looking at the table he's sat at, or something on it.

wxdruid
2006-12-28, 09:52 AM
Gwen pulls out the box of fudge, Here have a piece, chocolate is a wonderful thing.

Yet another pair of the men come in through the front door, and they repeat the process with the apparent leader. He frowns and crosses his arms, looking around the tavern again. His steely gray eyes catch sight of Gwen, and he looks at her for a moment, then places the back of his hand to his brow before turning his gaze away.

Kyrian gives a small smile. Thank you...

He takes a piece.

Gwen also takes a piece as she eyes the newcomers, wondering what on earth they are doing?

mmm, fudge is so tasty.

When Gwen doesn't respond to his gesture, the man's jaw tenses slightly and he sits down, obviously controlling himself. The other men mutter amongst themselves.
As'val!
The first man barks this to the others in an irritated and tense, but commanding voice. They quiet and look at him.

Silas

The man, sensing that nothing big is yet going to happen, gets up and walks over to wxdruid and Kyrian.

"Hello. I'm new around here. Can either of you give me any good advice about this place?"

to Silas, Hello, I'm Gwen. What do you want to know? as she continues to keep an eye on the group of strange men.

Karaki continues watching, before getting a piece of parchment out and writing on it, seemingly making calculations, but really just doodling and listening and watching the men.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 10:05 AM
I'm Kyrian.

Silas

"Hi...I'm Silas. I'm just new, and was wondering what all there is to do around here."

There are several Temples you can visit, the docks, the beach, the woods, and a few stores? Anything in particular you're interested in?

Kln'tear. V'lda.
The first man looks directly at one of his four men, and he begins speaking in a quieter, precise and official voice.

Kyrian
2006-12-28, 10:08 AM
I'd probably suggest keeping a weapon on you almost always...never know what will happen in this Town.

Silas

"Temples might actually be interesting. As with the docks as well."

He nods at Kyrian.

"I'll keep that in mind too."

Svadris comes down the stairs, followed loucly by Thud. Svadris, who hasn't emerged from his room in a couple of days, looks slightly thinner than he did. He goes to the bar. An Ichor Liquor, and whatever that was for Thud.

Cosmo nods and turns to prepare their drinks.

Karaki swears under his breath, unable to hear them, and unable to decipher the language.

The leader of the group scowls and makes a chopping gesture with his hand. He turns to another man as the first quiets, and gestures to him. The next man begins speaking in the same, respectful and official voice.

There's the Temple of Inari, Temple of Bahamutte, Temple of Iames and several others. At the docks there are often ships docked. I know the Liza Jane is currently in port, she's owned by El Jaspero.

Kyrian

Kyrian smiles wider at Gwen's words.

Silas
2006-12-28, 10:14 AM
Silas nods, and takes a seat across from Gwen and Kyrian, unless either of them objects.

The beach is always nice, but it's a bit cold to be sitting out there. I prefer Trog's. I like to drink the hot chocolate here.

Karaki continues to watch, his doodling becoming dotted with short notes.
