    Default Memories of Evil IC

    The Questrunners Guild's major hall lies deep within Peridotia but that is not where you begin. You are at a local hall near the eastern edge of Peridotia. It is a minor hall where you have been hired on for an exploratory mission into the jungle. You are waiting to meet your contact in the guild, Robert, outside of the city walls in the warm humid air of midsummer.

    Derrussar chaffed at being summoned like this, but his his word is his word.

    "If I give you this boon, Derr, then a boon in return, at my choosing, I expect back." the Questrunner said, having a valuable bit of information Derrussar needed and he knew it. The dark-furred Catfolk pondered discarding the Questrunner's price but the cost of garnering the information, if even possible, would be high. Grinding his teeth, Derrussar smiled as best he could. "So be it. I will give you a favor for the... information."

    He looked at the others, keeping his contempt from his face. Gnome, human and pixie. And a Catman. Sounded like a bad joke told by a drunken bard in a tavern near the tanneries.
    Seeing the others not making any inroads, he sighed internally while putting on his charm.
    "I am Derrussar Winding Path. By your leave, I would have your names, if we are traveling together." Once they give up whatever name they choose to give, he smiles at each in turn. "So, what brings each of you before the Questrunners Guild? Promises of gold and riches?
    An oath to bear? A need for adventure? All are valid for each."

    "Ian Daystar." said the young man. "I guess I'm here for the adventuring - you could say it's in my blood."

    He took out his Psicrystal - a teal crystal in the shape of a hemisphere. The crystal grew legs made out of psionic ectoplasm.

    "And this here is Cygnus. He's my Psicrystal - that's what Psions get instead of familiars."

    "The name is Trixis, but most call me Redeyes for some reason." the little gnome says, her voice much deeper than her slight frame would suggest. "Believe it or not, I am here to help you with my knowledge. That is who I am. That is what I do."

    Derrussar nods to each in turn. "Well, we all have our reasons. I have some talent with magic and items, while I can usually persuade someone to help us along the way, which I imagine I was asked along." he says with a toothy grin.

    "My ablilties lie in the area of physical combat and psionic powers. Looks like I'm the front-liner, then." said Ian. "I'm pretty good at tracking as well."

    "By the way... didn't Robert say that there would be four people? I count only three."

    "The usual spread of spells I would say, with focus on spells that help with finding, aquiring and understanding magic items, gems most of all. I usually like to be prepared for those occasions. I am afraid killing things is not His speciality nor is it mine. I can hold my own, I guess. Once we get to more dangerous places I will prepare for the brutality one has to face in the process of uncovering secrets." Trixis sighs "It is unavoidable, I fear. Unpleasant, anyway."

    Almost as an afterthought she adds: "Oh, and I am quite good at healing as well. It is expected of me, I know."

    Ian sighed as well.

    "Yeah, I know what you're talking about. Competition isn't bad, but there's so much needless conflict in the world.

    That's part of the reason why I always wanted to be an adventurer. My parents were adventurers too, you see, and I've heard enough to know that it's not all gold and glory. Ever heard about the Stellar Champions?

    Arathana silently approaches and descends down towards the group, hearing her new companions talk amongst themselves. Feeling uncomfortable, but no more so than usual when dealing with others, she lands in front of them before turning visible. "You can call me Ara. I apologise for my lateness."

    She doesn't really have much knowledge on the current topic (or particularly want to input details from her past) so she continues with what she sees her role as. "I'm a martial adept skilled at unarmed combat. My invisibility and size allow me to additionally serve well as a scout."

    "Long is not the term I would use to describe it," says a strange burbling voice from the edge of everyone's vision. A weird mix of lobster, clam, and humanoid stands before you waving its left claw in admonishment. "I am precisely on time according to my chronometer and my chronometer is the one I will be use to meter time. Now, come to my office and we shall discuss the mission." The clam/lobster man turns and heads to the small wooden building that sits not too far out from the walls of the city.

    Ian followed the being called Robert. As he did so, he asked nobody in particular,

    "Oh, would anyone mind if I check out your auras? Of course, if you don't want me to, then I won't..."

    Spoiler: OOC
    Show
    He means if he can check the others with a detect psionics, which due to psionics-magic transparency also functions as detect magic. I'm not sure if I can identify specific magic dweomers with a Psicraft check, though.

    Ara shrugs in response to Ian's question, not really knowing why he wants to do this, but seeing no harm in it. She then flies on ahead to Robert's office eager to get on with the mission.

    That's pretty deep. Maybe you should keep that in mind.

    said the telepathic voice of Ian's psicrystal.

    Good point Cygnus. Still, it would probably be stupid not doing it after getting permission.

    Ian activated his detect psionics. As he did, his eyes glowed, and a soft hum sounded. With his newly enhanced senses, Ian checked his future teammates, and Robert as well for good measure.

    Spoiler: OOC
    Show
    Cygnus will speak in the same color as Ian, and in the Garamond font to distinguish from his owner.

    As I've just activated it, detect psionics only allows me to detect the presence or absence of magic and psionic auras. I'll need a few more seconds to check more specific stuff.

    Speaking of which, how does magic-psionics transparency interact with Psicraft and Spellcraft?

    The power activated without a hitch. To Ian's senses, all three of his new teammates were letting off a weak aura, meaning that they all had at least one magic or psionic item.

    Unfortunately, Ian had already guessed that, as there was no way that adventurers of their status would lack any sort of dweomered object at all. He did detect a psionic aura from Ana, though.

    In hindsight, I should probably just asked what they had, instead of scanning them myself. Oh well...

    With a small sigh, Ian dropped the manifestation and joined the others.

    Spoiler: OOC

    Hmm, it's been a while since anyone's posted. Btw, did I detect any sort of magic or psionic aura from Robert? In case you didn't know, detect psionics can distinguish between magic and psionics.

    Robert sits on an oddly shape stool that conforms to his clammish body. He waves a claw, "Gentlefolk, thank you for your help. We have encountered a minor problem that seems excellent to determine the abilities of new adventurers such as yourselves." He daintily picks a map up and rolls it, holding it down with rocks stamped with the Questrunner's insignia, "the many jungles on Folia was actually quite populated with both sedentary and semi-nomadic tribes. One area is reporting an unusually high amount of disease. As soon as people can overcome it they are afflicted by another. We want you to investigate the illness and determine what can be done to stop it, especially before it spreads into Peridotia. We highly suspect this is the work of Nurgle or Talona cultists so expect divine magic. Any questions," he finishes with his burbling voice.
