<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah... It's in our tv... YOu should come trade us a new one for this one."
<AlcarGM> Desk Clerk: "Is it working?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Not anymore, someone opened the back of it."
<AlcarGM> Desk Clerk: "Well, it's not MY fault if you damage the TV," in injured bureaucrateze
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm pretty sure there's something white in there..." pointing to a white cable "And some red spots..." Pointing to a red cable
<AlcarGM> Desk Clerk: "White? Is it a kitten? IS IT A VAMPIRIC KITTEN!?!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I don't know, but I'm sure if you bring us a new tv we can give you this one and you can investigate it!"
<AlcarGM> You have a new TV in less than 5 minutes and the desk clerk is carrying your old one away, having dressed it up in garlic and saying "I have you now!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "No one is ever going to believe this happened."
* Mary_jane`^ sets the new tv up... and doesn't bother watching it...
<Mary_jane`^> "I don't think I'd worry about it too much. I'm sure we'll see something stranger tomorow night."

<AlcarGM> Sergeant Pebbles nods. "Where you you going, if you don't mind me asking."
<Mary_jane`^> "Some lake up the road, I forget it's name."
<AlcarGM> He nods. "Doing anything interesting there?"

<Mary_jane`^> "Nothing I'd call interesting."
<AlcarGM> He nods. "Well, thanks anyway."

<AlcarGM> You go to the bathroom. Roll d20 for successful attempt ... wait ..wrong game. You go to the bathroom without difficulty, and are leaving it when the back corner of the bathroom ..... changes ... you see something there that shouldn't exist, wrethed in what seemes like electric fire. It's close to 6' tall and the air reeks of ozone and oddly distorted sounds, like someone screaming in the distance.
<iota> (screw you alcar :P)
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))

<AlcarGM> The creature moves, something like parchment that seems to arms, or perhaps tentacles, lashes out at you.
<Mary_jane`^> "Gack!"
<AlcarGM> A voice like the sound of damned souls being run over by soccer moms in SUVS (complete with kids screaming to go potty in the background and daddy tells Junior steroids will help him get more goals) hisses "The Lord of Hell sends his regards"
* Mary_jane`^ gacks and jumps back
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh... Would you tell him I said thanks for the help, but I don't need it."

<AlcarGM> The archon moves out of the portal that used to be the rest of the backroom, the air now reeking of brimstone, cheap cigars, and., oddly, baby oil.
<Mary_jane`^> BABY OIL IS EVIL!
<AlcarGM> lol

<AlcarGM> Gabe: "It's a dream world," in a calm, detatched tone. "A spirit world. Wishes change things in them. They're .... what the world is, not what it looks like."
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh. Hey, while we're here, I want to try something!"
<AlcarGM> A large donut, about 6' tall, rolls down the road past you.
<AlcarGM> it's blue and white :p
<Mary_jane`^> the donut?
* AlcarGM nods.
<Mary_jane`^> blue and white?
<AlcarGM> Nora pockets the car. "To ... heck with that. How do we get HOME?"
* Mary_jane`^ watches the donut
<Mary_jane`^> "Wait wait... What the hell was that?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Police car," absently. "Still smells like cops."
* Mary_jane`^ opens her mouth but doesn't say anything

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I am not the Nora you know, nor the one shes know. People hide from themselves." The detached air changes, abruptly, and it's Nora's voice, younger, afraid. "No! Not daddy, mommy...." and the image shatters, the dream falling apart around you like glass. For a oment yoiu see . .. somethng. Light, and fire .... with no shape your mind can understand, as if math was given form, as if someone took mathematic concepts and gave them flesh
<AlcarGM> .... you see words, and sqaures, and circles.... all gold, and red, and not at all human
<Mary_jane`^> "Whoa... Someone likes their numbers..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Uhm... Jake?"
<AlcarGM> The .. entity .... notices you .... .. it swirls, becoming .... stars .... a song .... a word ..... fire... and Jacob's voice says "You should not be here...." and the vision is gone, as if someone slammed a door in your mind, or behind your eyes.
<Mary_jane`^> "Hmph... I don't want to see you either!"
<Mary_jane`^> "So much for welcoming spirits."
<Mary_jane`^> "And I don't mean that literally." To whoever is listening... Hopefully the sword

<AlcarGM> The girl clings to the teddy bear, not crying. "Go away!" she says, but nothing happens.
<Mary_jane`^> "Wait... Who are you?"
<AlcarGM> The girl blinks a few times.... "You don't know?" very softly.
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah... If I knew... I wouldn't be asking."
<AlcarGM> She seems ot change somehow ... becoming translucent, as if made from glass .. the glass is filled with cracks, but they don't let the light it and it seems that she might shatter at the wrong word, or the wrong thought in this place.
<AlcarGM> Girl: "She did bad things, bad things that don't happen to boys even if they can't feel any of them. So they never happened to a boy," as if reciting the alphabet.
<AlcarGM> The teddy bear chuckles, black button eyes gleaming with amusement.

<Mary_jane`^> "WHo are you?" To the bear
<AlcarGM> the bear chuckles again. "Just fear, my dear. And other things. Empty dreams, broken wings. Lost souls in the night afraid of darkness and of light. Just a stuffed bear I am. The only one that cares, I am."
<Mary_jane`^> "A bit of a poet, too."
<AlcarGM> (( ... this is worrying ME :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Hey, fear... Who is that, that's holding you?"
<AlcarGM> The bear laughs. "Of course, of course. For those that won't cry: Don't you know that poets lie?" The bear giggles. "If you don't know, then you should go."
<Mary_jane`^> "You're pretty good... actually..."
<Mary_jane`^> "How do I leave?"
<AlcarGM> The bear grins, the teeth sharp and dripping blood. "as simply as to cease to be. Only just stop trying to see. The truth you wil not find if you never give it any mind."

* Mary_jane`^ looks out the window
<AlcarGM> You see .... trees, and a farmhouse.
* Mary_jane`^ blinks the power on... to make sure it's not a soul trap
<AlcarGM> It's a normal farmhouse, warm and cozy and loved in a way that homes in a city aren't loved anymore. A place that has been built by and raised generations. Just seeing it gets rid of some of the nastier images you saw in the dream world.
<AlcarGM> (( a wee bit paranoid? :p ))
* Mary_jane`^ shuts the power off
<Mary_jane`^> (( Me? NEVER! ))

* Mary_jane`^ ignores everyone
* Mary_jane`^ wishes to see the real world now
<AlcarGM> Nothing happens .. because all worlds are equally real. .... then the everyday world snaps back into place around you. The restaurant is aa dimmbunring smear behind you on the horizon and you're inside the car.
<Mary_jane`^> "Just shut up."
* Mary_jane`^ looks out the window
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Me? You're the one walking into peoples souls without even asking!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I wasn't talking to you!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I was talking to whoever was telling me about the equalities of all world's reality."
<Mary_jane`^> (( I think she's insulting you dood ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( You shouldn't take that shit... ))
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".. what?"
<Mary_jane`^> "The... Reason we didn't come back here."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... we are back here." SHe gives you a worried look :)
<Mary_jane`^> "He's smiling now... OH GOD! I can see the world as it really is!" oooor.. not...
<Mary_jane`^> "Nevermind."
<AlcarGM> (( lol ))

<Mary_jane`^> "You just have to be true to yourself. The truth shall set you free."
<AlcarGM> The girl laughs. "All the truth does is MAKE YOU HURT!" and her voice *throws* you out of the image .. into a racinng car, driving over every finish line that every was....
<AlcarGM> I liked the cars soul scape. Winning races. . forever. Nice and simple.
<Mary_jane`^> lol oh yeah
<Mary_jane`^> Who needs complex thoughts

<SilverHorse> God.
<AlcarGM> hmm?
<SilverHorse> I know I'm reading an Alcar game.
<SilverHorse> [05:50] <AlcarGM> There's a roadblock ahead of you, filling the road. Behind it are police officers.. only for a moment some of them are ... somehing else. Like metal spiders,with faceted eyes gleaming malice...
<Mary_jane`^> you should have been here earlier
<Mary_jane`^> with the teddybear

<AlcarGM> One of the real police officers comes over to the door as Nora brings the car to a stop. "Good morning," in the cheerful voice of someone who knows he is going to make your life miserable and enjoys it because he's never going to advance in his job and is making less than colege kids and takes it out on everyone else.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Hello. You mind if we go through? We sort of need to get to the city."
<AlcarGM> The officer shakes his head. "Routine search. Seems some drug smugglers are smuggling placebo down this road, so we're checking ever car. You'll have to get out."
<Mary_jane`^> "Placebo?"
<AlcarGM> He nods.
<Mary_jane`^> OMG!

<AlcarGM> an MIB gets out of the limo. A lot thinner than anyone you've see before, and he's basically the blind hair/blue eyes aryan god image Hitler would have had wet dreams over. He's wearing a black suit, and his smile is like a cat that just found the cream.
<AlcarGM> MIB: "Wel, well, well. This was easier than expected. Federal Officer Heller. I can take the matter from here. These four people are under arrest. A matter of national security."
<AlcarGM> He's telling the truth, of course. He's just not saying what nation :p
* Mary_jane`^ looks officer Heller over
<Mary_jane`^> "You look familiar..."
<AlcarGM> He seems human. Even when you Look at him he still seems human . .ecxcept that there is nothing in his eyes. Just empty void.

<alcar> oh! How much of the whole weirdness do you want MJs family to find out about, and when?
<alcar> It's not it can he hidden forever .. sooner or later M&A wil target family.
<Chaos`^> NONE NEVER
* alcar points back to "target family"
* Chaos`^ points back to "NONE NEVER"
<alcar> Your mom will definitely have questions if demons from Hell invade the house and demand she surrender her daughter.

<AlcarGM> jacob looks around for a hill, sees none. "The .. bullets were forged inside a human soul. The tires won't heal." He looks annoyed. "It seems they wish to strand us, perhaps to gather their own forces."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well... Atleast he's human."
* Mary_jane`^ stabs the tree
<AlcarGM> You cut the tree . .fire flares, and the tree is now burning merily.
<AlcarGM> And Mother Nature marks you down for rebirth as a worm
<Mary_jane`^> "Hmmm..."

* Mary_jane`^ taps the tree with her sword
<AlcarGM> It's a tree. You tap it. It does not bleed sap.
<AlcarGM> Or talk. Which is probably good.
* Mary_jane`^ cuts it
<AlcarGM> The tree bleeds its life bood, sobbing at the cruel injustices of the human race and vows that if its ever made into an axe it will endevour to cut your head off, or at least give you a really nasty splinter.

<AlcarGM> You have time to notice the spider creature is advancing and feel oddly disjointed, as if somehow an infinitude of time has passd since your last though, as if the world slowed down. Your perceptions speed up to normal as Clay, Andrew and... the GM forgets Elana's pc .... all vanish abruptly, leaving strange golden coins glowing in the air where they were
<AlcarGM> (( Yes, I'm stealing from Mario Bros. too :p ))
<Silvran> (( Coins? Oh god. ))
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))

<AlcarGM> The spider thing advances. Greg develops metal plates, spikes and spines without thinking about it.
<AlcarGM> Oddly, you sense no hostility from it ... but it could just be too alien for you to grok it :P
* Silvran steps behind Greg, waiting to see what the spider thing does.
<AlcarGM> Greg :"... Thanks a lot."
<Silvran> "You got metal spikes. I don't."
<AlcarGM> Greg: "You heal. I don't."
<AlcarGM> The spider-beast lumbers to a halt and before either of you can react an arm come sout of the side of it, holding a strange tray. And the spider-beast says: "Could I interest you in some tea, good sirs?"
<AlcarGM> Greg: "... tea?"
<AlcarGM> Spider-beast: "Why of course. It's a drink, of leaves fermented in water and steeped according to ancient chinese methods."
<Silvran> "Does that gun dispense it?"
<AlcarGM> Spider-Beast: "Oh, no sir. It's for protector. Against the Tea Party in Boston. Evil brutes, I tell you."

<AlcarGM> A few moments later you open them to find him glowing a pale yellow, filling the room with some light that only serves to make it seem darker. The floor is jet-black, and a voice from your left whispers hoarsely "please... no pain...."
* Silvran blinks..
<Silvran> "Who are you.. voice?"
<AlcarGM> The glow from within greg brightens .. you get to see ... organs? .... changing and remaking themselves moment to moment .... and an old man, chained to a a wall by nothing visible, his face ancient and filled with despair.
<Silvran> "Greg? Are you alright?"
<AlcarGM> "A hospital ... is no place .. to be sick," the old man croaks. "I .. siad that once."
<AlcarGM> Greg: :"Huh? Yeah. Just making light, I think. You look rather odd by it though....."
<Silvran> "Odd is not a word that would fit what you look lik."

<AlcarGM> Greg: "Ah .. right. But we'd like to leave. And find our friends.. and where we are...."
<AlcarGM> The old man chuckles, his eyes sparkling. "Everywhere. Nowhere. What difference can it make? What difference can anything make? There is only is." He slumps, as if the effort exhausted him. "Only is."
<Silvran> "Only is what??"
<Silvran> "We're stuck here, without our friends.
<Silvran> "And you are babbling on about doors closing because of a sin you don't remember."
<AlcarGM> The old man shakes his head. 'There is only now. Only the moment. All the rest - lies. Free will - lies. We do what . .we must." He is silent. :"But after, we still weep. You wil leave if you do."
* Silvran looks at Greg, hoping for an anwser."
<Silvran> FUCK
<Silvran> wrong button
<Silvran> er
<AlcarGM> ... uh... what?
<Silvran> (( wrong channel too))
<AlcarGM> Greg just shakes his head, looking confused.
<Silvran> ((Don't ask :P))

<AlcarGM> The old man blinks a few times, confused. "I made this place," he says slowly. "Long ago Dream made real. DreamLand. Was a themepark, too. Somewhen. Maybe wasn't. Made it all. But the price - you know? Everything has a price. Everything costs. And it's all too much."
* Silvran mumbles to Greg "I think it cost him his sanity."

<AlcarGM> Greg: "Can you .. heal him or something?"
<Silvran> "I can try."
<AlcarGM> (( with twinkies! ))
<Silvran> ((Is he close enough to touch?))
<AlcarGM> You vcan walk over and touch him easily
<Silvran> "Here goes nothing.."
* Silvran walks up to the man, and reaches out a gentle hand, touching his head.
<AlcarGM> Rol the dice. Wait. There are no dice. Hah!
<Silvran> ((I know, its all up to your mind. Which scares me even more than dice.))

<AlcarGM> Old Man: "You are .... outside the script, yes? From Outside?" Whatever chains were holding him are gone and he loosk younger, haler, and hearty.
<Silvran> "Why yes. Are we playing our parts well?"
<AlcarGM> He shakes his head. "Outside the parts.... the system broke down. Huh. And fixed..... no, you fixed it." he gives you a hard, piercing stare. "What ARE you people?"
<AlcarGM> Greg: "Currently, I'm some light."
<Silvran> "I'm who I am."
<AlcarGM> The old (now young) ma shakes his head. "Nothing human, I imagine. The program is too complex for anyone human except me to fix. I MADE it that way, and you fixed it just by being her, without even knowing .... Are you ... gods?"
<Silvran> "Yes."
<Silvran> ((You have seen ghostbusters, right? "If someone asks if you are a god, you say yes!"))
<AlcarGM> (( yes :) ))

<WarezBert> ooo
<WarezBert> coool funny char for a gm to run sometime
<WarezBert> someone who has 'prophecy tourettes'
<WarezBert> cant help himself from blurting out random true prophecies in the middle of conversation
<WarezBert> at full volume
<WarezBert> and couched in as vulgar terms as possible
<alcar> lol
* alcar marks that down for Fin De Siecle.

<AlcarGM> Nora: "So .. who wants to te toto?"
<Mary`Jane^> "You. I get to be dorothy."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "No way. I'd be .... the tin woodsman. Hammer . .axe.. same thing."
<Mary`Jane^> "You mean the robot guy?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "God .... please don't do -" A VOICE, from somewhere far above booms out "YES?" ....pretend. Things are more real here than in our world. Stories. Symbols, all of that. This is part of where they live. You could literally become that."

<AlcarGM> The thatch huts change to a modern modern, urban ghetto look. There are people now. Well, mostly people. You spot a few monkeys beggig for spare change. Some of them still have wings, too.

<AlcarGM> Nora: "... whoever that is, I so want her to meet some pro life group."
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".. or maybe eat one?"
<Mary`Jane^> "Whoa.."
<Mary`Jane^> "What's wrong with her?"
* Mary`Jane^ walks over to the bulge and checks it
<AlcarGM> The scenery *tears* with a sound like ripping paper and someone popping bubble wrap at the same time. Some .... crone .... is standing where the tear is, with children and sheep eating her alive. She blinks a few times. "Mary! I have your sheep mary!"

<AlcarGM> The old woman screeches: "Your sheep! Your sheep! Sheeples for the temples! Count them! The count is counting: One, Two, Three!"
<AlcarGM> As the three, she turns into three old women, complete withn sheep and children gnawing away at them.
<AlcarGM> They see each other, and simply vanish.
<Mary`Jane^> "I mean... This doesn't look like a dream anyway... My dreams are more direct... Plus I can't control myself in my dreams."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: ".... I wish that had been demonic..."
<Mary`Jane^> "Wait! I know them!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... you do?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "It sort of reminded me of Mrs. Thompspon..."
<Mary`Jane^> "Yeah, I think so... They're the ones that are always weaving... Shoot... What's their name..."
<Mary`Jane^> "What?"
<Mary`Jane^> "no, that'd be too wierd."

<AlcarGM> Gabe gives you a pained look. "I really doubt the three fates would be being devoured by children and sheep."
<Mary`Jane^> "Don't ask, don't tell."
<Mary`Jane^> "It's symbolism..."
<Mary`Jane^> "They are my lambs... and I am the shepherd."

<AlcarGM> Ths scenery changes, a blue shift into red. Everything is tinged with red now, and the yhellow brick road is a bridge over a lake of blood.
* Mary`Jane^ scratches her head
<Mary`Jane^> "We ARE in the right world, right?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: ".... I hope so."
* Mary`Jane^ draws her sword and looks at it... and wills everyone back to the world she precieves as normal
<Mary`Jane^> (( Which, infact, is not this one ))
<AlcarGM> The sword burns ... red....
<AlcarGM> You hear chariots .... the sound of horses....
<Mary`Jane^> "I haven't died have I?"
* Mary`Jane^ looks up
<AlcarGM> and horsemen . .flies buzzing ... men dying .... Atkins diet wrappers held by people thin as skeletons .....
<AlcarGM> (( the atkins diet is Famine. Really. ))
<Mary`Jane^> "Uh-oh... Is that what I think it is?"

<Mary`Jane^> MJ is having an acid flashback
<AlcarGM> lol
<AlcarGM> did she ever DO acid?
<Mary`Jane^> Don't know
<Mary`Jane^> that was before I took her body over

<AlcarGM> the cars tires are still toast.
* Mary`Jane^ looks for the car
<AlcarGM> And it's car sized, which is good.
* Mary`Jane^ tries to heal them now
<AlcarGM> A shimmer... and they heal, easily.
<AlcarGM> tho you filled them with water :p
<Mary`Jane^> "Oops."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... is that a good or bad oops?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob does NOT laugh. With an effort.
* Mary`Jane^ practices looking inocent
<Mary`Jane^> "It's nothing..."

* GeminiRai always knew he would accidentally cause the end of the world.
<alcar> yes :P

* Mary`Jane^ Quit (Ping timeout)
* Mary`Jane^ has joined #game1
<Mary`Jane^> ...
<AlcarGM> wb?
<Mary`Jane^> it's gods way of telling me to go to bed

<Chaos`^> no, you never make anything easy
<alcar> that is true :P
<alcar> but the last part of the trip to the city was easy :)
<alcar> You can thank/blame GeminiRai for that.
* GeminiRai cackles insidiously
<Chaos`^> why's that?
<alcar> He found a plot hole. It got filled.
<Chaos`^> what plot hole is that?
* alcar cannot tell. Otherwise it won't be a surprise :)

* alcar had Evil Stuff planned. His pointing out the prohblem made your journey back far easier, since Merlin became busy with other things.
<Chaos`^> I kind of LIKE evil stuff
<GeminiRai> aww, I stopped evil stuff?:(
<alcar> well, short term evil stuff. Long term evil stuff got worse :p
* Chaos`^ shrugs
<Chaos`^> I could care less
<Chaos`^> Because it's all the same to me
<alcar> Heh.
<Chaos`^> Because I don't know anyway
<Chaos`^> Why are you ven telling me this? You won't give me details anyway
<GeminiRai> so you'll fret about it, probably.

<GeminiRai> I wonder what the short term evil stuff was.
<GeminiRai> winged monkeys attack!
<alcar> more demons, plus cops.
<alcar> and a troop of girl scouts.
<GeminiRai> ...girl scouts?
<alcar> The carnivorous kind, out to turn people into cookies.
<GeminiRai> neat!
* alcar nods. I was going to give them nazi uniforms and shout "heil bush" and stuff.
* GeminiRai wonders why carnivorous girl scouts would care about bush.
* GeminiRai sighs
<alcar> loyalty to the govinment :p

<Adam`^> "We could take her out to the middle of nowhere and ask her questions... So we're not bothering people."
<Mel`> " ... what, like torture? No. I wouldn't do it to animals of any kind, even humans. And we're not sure she knows anything. Unless you can concoct some kind of truth serum, I'd have to see if this magic stuff can make her remember or speak, and it's definitely not reliable."
<Fennec> (( "this magic stuff" ... :))

<Fennec> d100
<FirestormZero> Fennec d100: 54
<sparkie> Fennec d100: 82
<Fennec> FirestormZero?
<FirestormZero> (( let me turn that off))
<Mel`> (( liked fzs's roll better ;P ))
<Fennec> (( your disloyalty to sparkie shall only amplify his resolve to punish you! :))

<Fennec> "My... God... Melissa! What the f-" She stops, blinks, looks around...
<Fennec> "Where are we?"
<Adam`^> "What is your name?"
<Fennec> "Melissa, where's Paul? Where are we?"
* Adam`^ hmmms
* Mel` shakes her head.. "I don't know what happened."
<Adam`^> "Who are you?"
<Fennec> "It's me, Angeline! What's going on?!?"
<Adam`^> "Who's Angeline?"
* Mel` stares.....
* Adam`^ looks at melissa
<Mel`> "That's .. .not possible..... is it?"
<Fennec> ... end of session, I need sleep.
<Mel`> lol. Nice :P
<Adam`^> hah! now it's alcar's turn to feel the cliffhanger!

<AlcarGM> lol Fennec. That was nice :P
<Fennec> :)
<AlcarGM> poor Mel.
<Fennec> well, someone needs to sit her down and make her go omgwtf :)
<AlcarGM> yes :p
<AlcarGM> tho she has no idea WHY she is still sane as is :p
<Fennec> she isn't! all that aura stuff, it's all in her head! :)
<AlcarGM> lol
<AlcarGM> that would be her luck :)
<Mary`Jane^> I've tried to get her to do that
<Mary`Jane^> but she won't listen
<Mary`Jane^> every time I do she blows up
<Mary`Jane^> It's kind of like throwing a cherry bomb in a forest fire
<Fennec> the entire world is all in Mel's head!!! Mel as GODDESS. (you'd think a goddess would manage the place better, but no, her sanity has been affected :)

<Mary`Jane^> stop inflating alcar's ego, please
<Fennec> it's not alcar's ego, it's alcar's alter ego. (say that ten times fast)
<Mary`Jane^> I screwed up trying to say it once

<Aerdan> . o O (Don't you people *ever* sleep?)
<AlcarGM> (( yes :P ))
<Mary`Jane^> (( Too much, actually ))

<AlcarGM> Nora comes back in a few minutes later. "No sign of Jake. Why does your brother do that?"
<Mary`Jane^> "Do what?" While practicing
<AlcarGM> You haven't managed to break a sweat, since the excalibur energy just feeds you more energy whne you start getting tired
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Take these lessons. Or torture, I guess."
<Mary`Jane^> "Because he wants to become a good swordsman and will do it nomater the cost."
* Mary`Jane^ doesn't break to speak
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I wonder if we could offer magical liposuction?"
<AlcarGM> (( which could be possible, come to think of it. ))
<Mary`Jane^> "He needs to work it off... That's his first challenge and a good one... If he's serious about this then he will."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Well, with luck the world won't end first."

<Mary`Jane^> MJ is so mean
<Mary`Jane^> she doesn't like fat people I don't think
<Mary`Jane^> She's so predjudice
<Mary`Jane^> I hate her
<AlcarGM> Oh, she's just sarcastic about everyone :p
<AlcarGM> Er, you mean your pc.... okay... :p
<Mary`Jane^> yeah
<AlcarGM> I thought you meant Nora...
<Mary`Jane^> No
<AlcarGM> That's not a good sign, chaos :P

<AlcarGM> you hate your pc? :p
<Mary`Jane^> Yeah, she's totally prejudice
<Mary`Jane^> If I had that kind of power
<Mary`Jane^> I'd be cool with it and give liposuctions
<AlcarGM> lol

<AlcarGM> You drop him off at school and drive to yours. Biology is .... interesting .... again. I won't bother to make up a speech for Mrs. Thompson this time, just that she advocates giving pro-life mothers every unwanted child and seeing how long it lasts until they just snap and kill the whole brood.
* Mary`Jane^ wonders when Mrs. Thompson will actually start talking about... BIOLOGY
<AlcarGM> (( possibly never ;P ))
<Mary`Jane^> Is it possible to link the words 'Mrs. Thompson' and 'On task'?
<Mary`Jane^> Wait wait wait...
<Mary`Jane^> I just realized something
<Mary`Jane^> OMG
<AlcarGM> what?
<Mary`Jane^> Her name... is MRS. thompson...
<AlcarGM> you probably don;'t want to meet her family....
<Mary`Jane^> probably?
<Mary`Jane^> take the probalby out and you have a true statement =p

<AlcarGM> Luna is, surprisngly, actually in English class.
* Mary`Jane^ goes back and sits by her and smiles
<Mary`Jane^> "What are you doing tonight?"
<AlcarGM> Luna looks at you, surprised. "Oh. Watching the stars to see if they come right."
<AlcarGM> (( *whistles* ))
<Mary`Jane^> "If they what?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "If Venus actually eclipses Mars."
<Mary`Jane^> "Wanna do something more interesting?"

<AlcarGM> You hear a sharply truncated scream from the bathroom.
<AlcarGM> Another roll of thunder, and the door to the womans washroom explodes outwards in a shower of splinters.
<AlcarGM> Nora leaps out .. folllowed by the largest, ugliest wolf you've ever seen
<Mary`Jane^> "Uuh.."
<Mary`Jane^> (( Did she have the hammer before she entered, and does she have it now? ))
<AlcarGM> (( she still doesn't have it ))
<AlcarGM> Noras leaps desperately out of the way as the wolf the size of a large pony attempts to rip her arm off. It's covered in scars and snarling like a mad thing.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Shit!" as she leaps backwards.
<AlcarGM> People are screaming and scattering like mad
<AlcarGM> There are a few moans of agony from the bathroom, and several people being trampled by the crowds
* Mary`Jane^ jumps infront of nora and the wolf, with a lunch tray as a shield
<AlcarGM> The shield explodes with blue fire as the wolf crashes into it .. and bounces off, the tray exploding into shards in the process.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "What the fuck is this? We can't go to the BATHROOM now?"
* Mary`Jane^ jumps on the wolf and holds on tight... Feeling very much like a rodeo queen

<AlcarGM> The wolf howls twisting wildly and trying to basically crush you into a wall flat as a pancake.
* Mary`Jane^ creates a more primitive dagger this time, having less time and concentration to do it
* Mary`Jane^ stabs him on the other side and shifts position as he rams the wall
<AlcarGM> Youbarely make up as a gust of wind hurls Nora up to the classroom.
* Mary`Jane^ gets off of the wolf before he hits the next wall
<AlcarGM> The wolf howls again, bleeding badly but not letting up .... you're not sure it knows HOW to :p
<AlcarGM> You manage to get off just in time as it barrels through the wall and wheels in mid air to land facing you and snarling.
* Mary`Jane^ stands and whips herself off, forming another dagger
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I can't do anything here. We'll blow up the whole school!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".. well .. not that that would be BAD .... "

<AlcarGM> Your cut .. deep .. definitely not enough to hit anything vital though .... and it twists, it's tail lashing out and just missing as you back off.
* Mary`Jane^ stands next to nora wheezing loudly
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Come on, you stupid hammer... Wind!"
<AlcarGM> Nora is standing, but drenched in sweat. The wolf is coming ... though very slowly...
<AlcarGM> Nora: "This is .. insane... "
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Can'tr try .. the dark stuff .. not in a school ..... would likely drive srudents insane...." witrh something approaching a grin. "Virgins screaming in unholy lust.... might .. distract it?"
<Mary`Jane^> "Wait wait... I think I know this wolf..."
* Mary`Jane^ coughs up blood and spits
<AlcarGM> Nora: "You . .saw ... an owner tag..?"

<Mary`Jane^> "This is that wolf from norse myths... The big one.."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I thought it was .. chained up .. or something?"
<AlcarGM> Thunder rumbles and slams into the wolf, who stumbles back and then snarls wildly and pushes forward.
<Mary`Jane^> "I dunno... Loki's supposed to be being torchered too."
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... and you know .. he's not .... Met him ... on a a stroll?"

<Mary`Jane^> The good news is
<Mary`Jane^> I almost killed the wolf that will kill odin
<AlcarGM> yes :P
<AlcarGM> Odin owes you :)
<Mary`Jane^> well
<Mary`Jane^> I was thinking more
<Mary`Jane^> If odin comes to kill me, I can take him =p
<AlcarGM> lol!

* Mary`Jane^ looks rather exhausted
<Mary`Jane^> "Let's start going to the bathroom together now..."
* Mary`Jane^ stands and helps nora up
<Mary`Jane^> "Let's hurry out the back before the police come or something."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... I think .. people saw us ..... might be hard. . to explain...."
<Mary`Jane^> "We can write it off as delirium caused by the excitement."

<AlcarGM> A man with a bullhorn is asking everyone who was in the cafeteria at the time of the alleged incident to form up in the west parking lot."
* Mary`Jane^ shrugs and figures it's a good time to disapear and be thought of a druggy or something... better that than the person who made a dagger out of air...

* AlcarGM has this terrible mental image of it all being blamed on Mrs. Thompson :p
<Mary`Jane^> I wouldn't object
<Mary`Jane^> it was the wolves of man attacking her for not conforming and then forcing everyone else to think like her...
<AlcarGM> lol

<AlcarGM> (( is debating the car becoming some kind of magical relic ... it's been through enough :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( It needs a new paint job first ))
* Mary_jane`^ hopes the car doesn't drive itself soon... that would be bad...
<AlcarGM> (( You'd have to name it Kit. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( I would do no such thing! ))
<AlcarGM> (( but knight rider is fun! ))

* Mary_jane`^ jiggles the door to see if it opens
<AlcarGM> Locked.
<AlcarGM> (( Oh! And do you have your sword with you? :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> Yes!
<Mary_jane`^> Since you ask, yes!
<AlcarGM> (( d'oh! ))

<AlcarGM> Jeeves doesn't even blink when you come in, merely says that Nora seems to be still asleep and asks if Gabe wants a tour, rather sarcastically. Gabe says yes. "Except for the dance floor. I don't think I'll be dancing anytime soon."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves sighs and mutters something you don't catch.
* Mary_jane`^ helps gabe out
<AlcarGM> As they go inside you hear Gabe saying "There IS a dance floor? Wow...."
<Mary_jane`^> "Great... I need to go, I'll be back to pick up gabe and Nora... and I might maybe bring a visitor." With a wink
<AlcarGM> Jeeves ignores that :P
* Mary_jane`^ leaves in a hurry

<AlcarGM> Blaise: "No, you don't," harshly. "Not if you have an ounce of sense, child. Magic isn't something one just uses, or just learns. It's something one is, and one becomes. It demands prices, and the payment is always too high. Always."
<Mary_jane`^> "Then why did you do it?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise smiles but his eyes are cold, cold. "Because I thought I'd be lucky, be the exception. Because I wanted to impress a girl, and I was foolish and stupid."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm already going to die for the world... And i'm not trying to impress anybody... The price can be what it will, I still need to save the world."
<Mary_jane`^> (( Unless, ofcourse, the price is the world ))

<Mary_jane`^> I wonder how he'd react to my troupe
<AlcarGM> Not much fazes him :p
<Mary_jane`^> lol
<Mary_jane`^> but...
<Mary_jane`^> an angel.. a half demon with the tree on her hand and Mjolnir, a 9 year old fisher king paralized before becoming king...
<AlcarGM> lol., Yeah. They will :p

<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, should I grab my sword?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Always. A weapon is important. And a sword is a man's weapon, which is vital. Magic is about balance, to some extent. Male, female; light, dark; creation, destruction . . . thogh it's rarely that simple. Destruction can be a creative act, after all."
<Mary_jane`^> "But I'm female."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Exactly. And there is male in you, the animus, the male part of you. No one is just one thing."
<Mary_jane`^> "Animus?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "The inner self, behind the unconscious, the thing lurking beneath the basement of the mind. Most people don't like to admit it exists. Merlin never did."
<Mary_jane`^> "So it's like... My oposite?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise gets in and shakes his head. "It's part of you, the part you don't want to admit exists."
<Mary_jane`^> "Like those bad thoughts I get that I have to shake away because they're things that no one should think?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Magic can be done without admitting it, of course, or even confronting it. Most magicians think it's just nonsense anyway...." He nods. "Very close to that. In some respects it can be the person you would be if *you* weren't in your head. What you'd do if you had no morals, or conscience. It is that, for some people. It can also be a source of strength in denying it."
<Mary_jane`^> "Denial is the strongest force in the universe."
<AlcarGM> Blaise chuckles. "Ah. Someone has told you law one?"
* Mary_jane`^ nods
<Mary_jane`^> "And law one as well."

<AlcarGM> Blaise: "You wouold need to be initiated to understand the secret of magic, which is mostly that we make it all up as we go along. We make everything up, mage or otherwise. Science tells us this," he waves a hand in front of you "does not exist. We know it doesn't exist, but most people can't believe that, so they don't."
<Mary_jane`^> "What is this." Waving a hand infront of him
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Everything. The world we see, the world we perceive. The world we imagine ...." He trails off. "Some years after I was cursed by God I chanced to find a cave. A temple deep under the earth, where the old secrets and things dwell, from before the world was settled. Old, and powerful, and deep. I drank from a well that did not exist, and learned many thing I would give anything to unlearn."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah."
<Mary_jane`^> "But you can't sacrifice enough to unlearn it?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "No," softly. "I cannot die, and that may not be enough. I saw what really is, the Truth that makes all truths a lie. The . . . things, on the other side of mirrors, in our shadows watching us, hating us for having choice, for being real, for being alive . . ." He chuckles oddly. "Go looking for something with magic and you find it ... "
* Mary_jane`^ skoots slightly closer to the door
<Mary_jane`^> "So where are we not going?"

* Mary_jane`^ doesn't drive to anywhere that isn't a drive in
<AlcarGM> Okay. You arrive at Fred's Fast Food, where expiry dates are myths.
<Mary_jane`^> Nothing is a myth because nothing is true!
<Mary_jane`^> Except what I see
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))
* Mary_jane`^ doesn't drive to what isn't the speaker

<Mary_jane`^> "I hope not... Last god, legend, myth I saw looked pretty sorry."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Who was it?" curiously
<Mary_jane`^> "Mimir."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Ah." He looks sad. "She was one a Power, you know. Long ago. Before the world decided it was sane, before the wild magics faded and the old powers slept under the earth or stepped sideways into other lands. Nothing remains pure. Everything falls, especially if it won't admit that."
<Mary_jane`^> "I can't say I enjoyed her company.
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "I am amazed you managd to leave it."
<Mary_jane`^> "She ran like a little school girl."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: ".... did she really?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You bet your ass she did.. We wore her down enough to where she was starting to get vulnerable... I imagine she has enemies waiting for such an oportunity."
<Mary_jane`^> "The only good thing I can say about her is, that she knows when to quit."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Oh, *yes*. Anyone who becomes Important gets enemies." He chuckles. "I doubt she quit. You don't get to be old without having much besides your reputation left to you, and defending it is . . . important. I imagine she's just waiting."
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs
<Mary_jane`^> "She left me alone, that's all I care about right now..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Can I start driving with direction or... Are we not going somewhere?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "I doubt she has. And she is powerful . . . " He frowns and looks around, the chuckles. "Well. I doubt she will, if it comes to that . . . and yes. The zoo."
* Mary_jane`^ goes to the zoo
<Mary_jane`^> "What's at the Zoo?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "The last hope in the war. The remaining seals that hold back Hell from this reality. And, perhaps, Ragnarok, though I've never agreed that it's just an anagram for kangaroo myself."

<AlcarGM> Blaise: "hm. I've never actually taught it . . . It's much like coincidence, really. Noticing what is going on around you and fitting in to it. Riding a wave of possibility as far as it can you. Sometimes you just end up lucky, othertimes you don't." He grins. "In that sense, magic is love. Learning to pay attention."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "And real magic may be watching people deny magic, to clin to what they believe. Denial of magic is a magic as well. If you notice what people WANT to believe, you can be that thing, follow patterns. Much like ley lines."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ley?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise stops beside the exhibit for lions and looks at you. "Lines of power. Often where standing stones or McDonalds end up being placed. Sacred places, for the most power. A lot of natural magic ends up in them, or is created by them."

<Mary_jane`^> "SO my battle with arthur will likely end up at a place of high concentration of ley lines?"
<AlcarGM> He nods. "Here, I imagine, because the last of the seals are here."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "and protected," slowly, looking around.
<Mary_jane`^> "It can't be moved?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "They're seals. You could move them, but you'd need a tank, and water, and a lot of legal trouble."
* Mary_jane`^ looks around too
<Mary_jane`^> "SO they're big?"
<AlcarGM> As the last of the staff exit you begin to feel . . . something. A low humming at the edge of hearing.
<Mary_jane`^> "Wait... SEALS?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise nods. "The seven seals spoken of in Relevation, and other places. Only three remain, thanks to humans who like to eat seal flesh."

<Mary_jane`^> "Then what are we doing here? They're probably protected from us too."
<AlcarGM> He nods. "They're protected against Power, but not against mundane threats."
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh... So he can't send some random idiot to come poison them?"
<AlcarGM> Your power flares up and the zoo changes. The walls ... don't work, anymore. The buildings tilt at angles that shouldn't be possibly and perspectives skew, things turn black and white, then overexposed.... then it settles, and you can sense something Vast around youl, something ancient and terrible burning invisibly in some level of reality you cannot see. A ward, too big for you to grasp it.
* Mary_jane`^ shakes the power off
<Mary_jane`^> "A seal for the seals."
<AlcarGM> He nods. "He can do that, which is why they normally have guardians of one kind of another. it seems someone no longer trusts them and has warded this place in Enochian ... an angel... " he nods. "Irony. The first law."

<Mary_jane`^> "Anyway, show me the seals I'm protecting."
<AlcarGM> He nods and continues walking, leading you to the seal exhibit. It hasn't been closed up for the night yet, and there are three seals lounging about in water and on rock. On teir foreheadsburnsn a Mark, a Sign of kind, though you cannot read it and have a strong feeling you never want to. Aside from it, they look like completely normal seals.
<Mary_jane`^> "Can everyone see the mark?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise shakes his head. "only those who have to, normally. I See it because I went . . . underground, into the darkness. Merlin may be able to, because he is Merlin and his will is a terrible thing. Thre fisher kings can. Angels, because of what they are. Few others."
<Mary_jane`^> "How come I can?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Because of who you are, of course. Because you sacrificed things, in another life I suspect."
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs
<Mary_jane`^> "Is there any other reason we've come here? I kind of want to get to the spirit traps tonight and if the seals are sealed then there's not much we can do here."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Or because a Power will its, and there are forces older than God and this universe that sometimes take note of us. Sometimes, they make choices in whatever place they exist, and things happen that no one has reasons for, that no one can explain. Perhaps the roll dice, or merely imagine a thing and it is so. For all I can See, there are things I cannot understand."
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Damnit, he's figured us out... Kill him! ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Alright, you guys ready?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise nods.
<Mary_jane`^> "We don't have a random furry dog this time so... Try not to get thrown into any bushes."
<AlcarGM> Gabe grins. "I don't plan to."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "As long as you all don't come back."
* Mary_jane`^ stares at Jeeves
* Mary_jane`^ droppes her jaw
<Mary_jane`^> "I... I knew you didn't exactly LIKE me but... I didn't think you HATED me that MUCH."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "I MEAN, to spend the night. Or several nights. Or show up with a small party."
<AlcarGM> He has the grace to look a little embarrassed :)
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "Fine..."
<AlcarGM> Nora glares at him. "You. Me. Living room. Pick one of them."
<AlcarGM> She look s at you "Get everyone ready. I'm driving."
<AlcarGM> She practically marches Jeeves out.
<Mary_jane`^> LOL!
<Mary_jane`^> I'm gunna get the poor guy fired

<Mary_jane`^> "Gabe, why don't you head to the car, I need to ask Blaise a question."
<AlcarGM> Gabe nods and does so.
<AlcarGM> Blaise looks at you curiously.
<Mary_jane`^> "Something wrong? YOu looked surprised at something."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Hmm? Your companions. A possible demon marked with the tree of life is .... unusual enough. A fisher king like the boy is ... unknown. Like you, something new embodied in something old."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah... I suppose it's Rule one."
<Mary_jane`^> "Like atracts Like."
<AlcarGM> Blaise looks at you, then laughs quietly. "Quite true."

<Mary_jane`^> I'm kind of excited to see what would happen and how confused someone would be if they just jumped in as a PC of this game with no prior knowledge of anything
<Mary_jane`^> or even if MJ were to jump to another game
<Mary_jane`^> the fact that she's been developed so much makes her that much more interesting
<Mary_jane`^> I mean, just in talking to blaise she has a story for every example he could think of =p
<AlcarGM> lol
<AlcarGM> yeah :)

<AlcarGM> Nora comes out, humming to herself and hammer in hand. 'THAT is dealt with. So. We're off to see the wizard, then?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You didn't fire him did you? I mean, he's only trying to protect you..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Please never say that again..."
<Mary_jane`^> "The last time I was on the yellow brick road... Things didn't turn out too good."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "No. I just told him to stop being so sarcastic and I'd answer his questions when we got back. Of course, I have no idea what I'm going to tell him...."
<Mary_jane`^> "Tell him you're playing some game about people trying to save the world from hell... Like ah... What's that one game the nerds play with the dice..."
<Mary_jane`^> (( She's calling me a nerd, I'm hurt =( ))

<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... uhm .. dungeons and dominance?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, that's the one! Uh... DOminance? Really? I didn't know that was an s&m game.."
* Mary_jane`^ leans back
<Mary_jane`^> "Let's just go."
<Mary_jane`^> (( It's nora's inner demon changing the meaning of the game by changing a word ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( *nudging reality only slightly* ))

<AlcarGM> Nora drives into the south end of Municiburg. It's a chilly Monday night, the moon is out and obscured by stormclouds and her car is now battered and strange enough to fit right in. Most of the buildings are condemned, or should be. Slum apartments owned by rich people bleeding away lives for some profit. Oddly, it's pretty much a crime to live in one though not to own one.
<AlcarGM> or several. Or a few blocks, and be rich. It's not ghetto, because it's the kind of area that gives ghettoes a bad name. Most of the people are subsisting. Drufg dealers, the working poor, people with no place else to go. You can feel it, at some level, the weight of the place. THere is no way out, for most of them. They get sdrawn in, and they never leave.
<Mary_jane`^> lol
* Mary_jane`^ watches them pass by
<AlcarGM> Well, they could just walk about five blocks and leave, but no one ever does THAT :p

<Mary_jane`^> "It's almost a magnet of sorrow, once you move in you can never leave."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Yeah." He looked tired, and sad. "Most places are like that, though. Get enough people in a bad situation in one place and it gets worse. They just ... feed off each other, and make it bearable, but it makes sure no one ever leaves. Hope is a luxury people can't afford here."
<AlcarGM> (( how cheery :p ))
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... wow. You almost make me want to donate some money to a few charities here, Gabe."
<Mary_jane`^> "They have to be too good for charity here, to get this low... Or atleast think they are."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "That's not charity. Charity is the deprived helping each other. It's giving when you have nothing to give. All you'd be doing is .. restitution. Balancing a little. And I'm not sure it would help. People have to want to be helped."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... too good for charity. I like that. Pride cometh before a fall into slumlands."
<Mary_jane`^> "I think it's pride that got them here."

<Mary_jane`^> Alcar's characters are argueing with themselves again
<AlcarGM> sadly, yes :p
<Mary_jane`^> its rather funny, actually

<Mary_jane`^> so alcar
<Mary_jane`^> how many pages is the magic system in this game?
<AlcarGM> 3 and a bit.
<AlcarGM> why?
<Mary_jane`^> I just wondered how you condense 3 pages into 'we just make this up as we go along'
* AlcarGM laughs. Well, that's pretty much how most magic users really think it works :p

<Mary_jane`^> btw
<Mary_jane`^> have you thought of where the game's going if mj defeats arthur?
<AlcarGM> yep :)
* AlcarGM has often wondered what heroes do when the heroing is done :)

<AlcarGM> Your power flares, and the dead woman turns back ... and it begins to flow from you into her....
* Mary_jane`^ doesn't give her the chance to take anymore, and charges her
<aslhk> ((no, don't do it! remember the first law!))
<AlcarGM> What do you want to do? You can feel your power pouring out of you into the dead woman, being absorbed or devoured or something you can't even think about....
* Mary_jane`^ would hate to repeat herself
<AlcarGM> well, you charged her. I mea, do you start to hack her up .. or throw her to the ground and have wild sex?
<AlcarGM> And please don't say yes to wild sex.

<AlcarGM> THings.. two dimensional creatures begin coming out of the darkness, and out of your own shadows, reaching out with claw-like fingers to tear and rend.
<AlcarGM> mouths begin forming as they start to swarm around each of you.
* Mary_jane`^ flares her light to battle the shadows
<AlcarGM> Your light doesn't hurt them, at all. If anything, they get angr and MORE of them swarm you.
<AlcarGM> You can feel the presence of the wizard behind them, his naked will powerful enough to summon things that should not exist and give them flesh.
* Mary_jane`^ extinguishes her light then, settling for a blue tint... And stillw alking for the door
<AlcarGM> Uhm, They're tring to cut you to pieces. And they have teeth., And claws :p

* Mary_jane`^ wishes to be NEAR where luna is
<Mary_jane`^> a hop skip and jump?
<AlcarGM> she IS a somomewhere, at present. Hence, nothing happens :p
* Mary_jane`^ uses the power of truth to find out wehre she is, then so ha!
<AlcarGM> You reach out, and find yourself looking up as more of the roof falls in, your eyes drawn to the moon overhead.
* Mary_jane`^ uses her knowledge of magic to GO THERE then
* Mary_jane`^ makes a rune to help her, since she doesn't seem to have enough power to do it herself
<AlcarGM> You reach.... power comes, from inside. Behind you, you hear Blaise: "What are -"
<AlcarGM> And the world moves.. or you do . .you're standing somewhere .... cold .... far too cold . .your breaht comes out, and there is no more....
<AlcarGM> the stars are brighter, and closer. You're, somehow, on the moon. And, you realize rather quickly, dying.
<Mary_jane`^> oops
<Mary_jane`^> Didn't expect it to be the actual, literal MOON
<AlcarGM> (( you can't exactly breathe :p ))
* Mary_jane`^ goes to the spirit world, then, if she can

<AlcarGM> A voice, female, says inside your head "Why do you frighten my men?"
* Mary_jane`^ looks around for the owner
<Mary_jane`^> "Well... I didn't MEAN to... I was trying to understand them. Who are you?"
<AlcarGM> The five men run back away from you, making getures to ward off evil that look a lot like George Bush proving he was a Satanist.
<Mary_jane`^> "WHERE are you?"
<AlcarGM> Voice: "Seer, of the people. Dead for some years, waiting for my successor." A woman appears in front of you ... the same as the men ... hot huamns ... homo erectus, maybe? ... and, of course, you can see through her.
<AlcarGM> The men relax when they see her, saying things to each other and looking rather excited.
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh... I'm not it, I'm affraid.. Uhm... Where am I?"
<AlcarGM> The woman looks puzzled. "Here, of course."
<Mary_jane`^> "And here is...?"
<AlcarGM> The ghost gestures to the world around you. Sand and rock, mostly. A desert of some kind.
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah..."

<AlcarGM> "You are not of the people," the ghost says. "I know that much. You do not belong here/now."
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah... Looks kind of primative... Ironic."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well..."
<AlcarGM> The ghost frowns at you, then gestures and a GPS display appears in front of her. "You seem to be lost."
<AlcarGM> j/k

<Mary_jane`^> "I certainly don't plan on it."
* Mary_jane`^ walks through the door
<AlcarGM> Something becomes aaware of you. You fee a Presence take note of you, and the void flickers for a moment as it assesses .. and you appear back in the remains of the spirit trap, to hear Blaise shouting :I TOLD you she could be .. anywhen. She pushed magic with her power and only the gods know where she could be. Or what she might be. I can't just snap my fingers and she'll appear." He does so ..... then looks at you ..... then at his fingers...
* Mary_jane`^ smiles
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, isn't that Ironic?"

* Mary_jane`^ wonders if god had email
<AlcarGM> YOU HAVE MAIL! Well, one email. Something about seven days, and a chain letter you have to pass on ....or not :p
<Mary_jane`^> god@heaven.gov
<Mary_jane`^> .gov because of seperation of church and state, and the universe leans toward irony

* Mary_jane`^ sits in her bed and stares at the moon in wonder for a while, then crawls under the covers
<AlcarGM> Eventually, as if against your will, you sleep .... and, as you have before and will agian, you dream .... not a nice dream, even compared to the others that came before it. Perhaps guilt shows you it, or remorse ... or the dead...
<AlcarGM> http://alcar.suddenlaunch3.com/index.cgi?board=fgame&action=display&num=1110799159
* Mary_jane`^ cries herself to sleep
<AlcarGM> (( the GM really hopes this one never comes to pass :p ))
* Mary_jane`^ kind of likes it
<Mary_jane`^> err wait
<AlcarGM> (( .... say what? :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> Sorry, that wasn't MJ
<Mary_jane`^> I thought I was sparkie for a minute

<AlcarGM> The ninja smirks, meeting your eyes., You lock gazes, and power flares ..... only to break apart wildly, chaotically. Where her eyes should be you see two golden apples, and the word Kallisti seems to flare in the air before her . .word, and warning.
<AlcarGM> "Truth?" The ninja laughs, wiping her blade off on the corpse and looking delightrly. "But, dear girl, everythng is true."
<Mary_jane`^> warning?
<Mary_jane`^> "You'd be surprised."
* AlcarGM nods. It's some kind of power....
<AlcarGM> She grins. "Even false things are true."
<Mary_jane`^> "Seriously, who are the poee... Are you the same ninja that tried to kill me up on the hill?"
* Mary_jane`^ pales
<AlcarGM> She shrugs. "Of them. We're in this for our own reasons, which reason doesn't know. The curse of greyface will be ended, though."
<Mary_jane`^> "You have a way of answering questions with babble. Could you be more direct?"
<AlcarGM> She grins. "Nonsesense as salvation. Seek the sacred chao."
<Mary_jane`^> "Do you work for the cable company?"
<AlcarGM> She stops grining, eyeing you thoughtfully, and puts her sword away. "It's a living."

<alcar> discordian ninjas are fun.
* alcar wishes I'd thought ofthem years ago
<aslhk> :D
<aslhk> (I responded to that at 5:05)
<alcar> lol
<aslhk> you said it at 5:00
<aslhk> =P

<Mary_jane`^> hopefully it's college
<Mary_jane`^> where parents aren't alowed
<AlcarGM> hm?
<Mary_jane`^> what happens to heros when the heroing is done
<AlcarGM> lol
<Mary_jane`^> for MJ i think it will be college
<Mary_jane`^> she can't just stop living because her purpouse was complete
<Mary_jane`^> if she didn't die then that means there is more to come... be it a normal life or something else

<Chaos`^> wonder what sal is really doing
* alcar chuckles.
* alcar has plots :P
<Chaos`^> wonder if it has anything to do with porn
<Chaos`^> i mean
<Chaos`^> if he's really doing the nasty in that bedroom with himself
<Chaos`^> to work up that much sweat, he has to be trying to have sex with the ceiling
<alcar> lol

<Chaos`^> I wouldn't mind her to be unique in that she knows the way the world works that no one else really does... The 'behind the scenes' that are behind the scenes... But I also don't want her to go crazy like blaise
<WarezBert> i want one of the characters to have a profound revelation about the way the universe works, and inexplicably from that day forward destroy flower shops wherever he finds them.
<alcar> lol WarezBert

<AlcarGM> You arrive at school school, and there are giant creatures you've never seen before moving around it, and above it, metal spiders or goliaths of another age harvesting it's organs, and then you blink, and the notion is gone, and I need to have more ands, and the cranes are slowly putting the cafeteria back together like a giant jigsaw puzzle.
<Mary_jane`^> are you serious?
<AlcarGM> (( When am I not? :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> most of the time
<AlcarGM> (( Good point. About which part? :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> oh
<Mary_jane`^> Sorry, Had to read the paragraph twice to get it
<AlcarGM> A few students are trickling into school, most out having a smoke or talking in cliques before classes to delay the final moment where they become students again as long as possible.
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head, and goes inside looking aorund
<AlcarGM> (( it's the commas, right? :p Evil ands. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Yeah, it was ))

<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thompson strides into class, wearing sweatpants and a baggy sweater, her hair messed up all ove the place, and no make up.
<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thoomspon: "Everything you will learn in High School is a lie."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "So what did you dream?"
* Mary_jane`^ stares at Mrs. Thopson
* Mary_jane`^ raises a hand
<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thomspon: "Biology is nothing more than a lie. Appearances are lies. This, is me, shorn of lies. Of make up to impress people I have no need to impress, of artifice lost. Biology is genetics as much as it is luck. If not a great deal less. Surviving giant meteors of alien invasions is a mater if LUCK, not genetics.."
<AlcarGM> She blinks, stasing at you. No one is sure the last time someone raised their hand in this class. She frowns at you, then says "Yes, Mary Jane?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Mrs. Thompson--are you feeling ok?"
<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thomspon: "Of course I am. Why wouldn't I be?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Does she want a list?" under her breath.
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, you just seem kind of out of it."
<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thomspon: "Out of what?"
<AlcarGM> (( Entire class: "Reality." .. :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "IT, you were saying last tuesday that appearances are everything in the working world if you want people to listen to you. And today you look like you forgot to sleep last night. And now you're telling us that the world is luck when just yesterday you said that the world is a pre-programed system that is controlled by men."
<AlcarGM> Nora stares at you, awed. "You LISTEN to her?"
* Mary_jane`^ looks at Nora "Well yeah, I DO want to pass."
* Mary_jane`^ actually reserves this knowledge to get out of answering questions that she doesn't want answered
<AlcarGM> Mrs. Thompson ignores Nora, though quite a few students are trying, withn varying degrees of success, not to laugh. "Then you understand. The world is all those things, and more besides. It's about stories, and stories are lies we tell each other to show us truths. We all exist, and none of us do. This," she waves a hand to the wall. "Isn't solid. According to science, it's mostly empty space. But we can't believe that."

<Mary_jane`^> She babbled because she thought nobody listened to her =p
<Mary_jane`^> OMG that's so funny
<Mary_jane`^> all I had to do was prove I listened and she starts becoming a real teacher
<AlcarGM> lol. Yup :)

<Mary_jane`^> "Who are you?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Luna Parsons," slowly, as if reciting something. "I play the piano."
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna is a lie. Who ARE you?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "It's all a lie." She smiles, and the smile is almost frighteningly sane. "I know. But it's a secret."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I know who you are, too. The wizard knows, but he doesn't know he knows. We all tell lies. You lie, about your dreams."
<Mary_jane`^> "Tell me the truth."
<Mary_jane`^> or perhaps Tell me, The Truth.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Why? There are lots of truths." She stands slowly, her expression distant. "But more secrets. I hear them.."
* Mary_jane`^ smiles gently
<Mary_jane`^> "The truth shal set you free." OMG i always wanted to use that =p
<AlcarGM> (( lol ))
<AlcarGM> Luna: ".. but first it will piss you off."

* alcar shall have to make a in depth character list tomorrow :p
<alcar> otherwise chaos and I will get lost.
<aslhk> kill them all!
<aslhk> a big disease!
<aslhk> =P
<aslhk> caused by mad scientists trying to ressurect the black plague
<aslhk> because they thought it was sentient!
<alcar> lol
<alcar> "But ... but ....it's bubonic .... I thought everyone would grow boobs on their neck ... boobies are cute .. I like to squeeze them .. I never thought it would come to this" *mad scientist beings bawling his eyes out*

<Melissa> "I .... maybe ..... I don't know! How did you get here?!"
<Fennec|GM> "I was just a VOLUNTEER from the AUDIENCE!!! Ohmigod, I don't know! Why do you look like that?!?"
<Melissa> "Look like what?"
<Melissa> (( :p ))
<Fennec|GM> "YOU'RE ABOUT THREE AND A HALF FEET TALL AND YOU HAVE WINGS!!! Is this another trick? Ohmigod... if this is another trick you are SO DEAD!!!"
<Melissa> "Oh.... I forgot about .... "
* Melissa wills herself to normal height
<Melissa> 3#d100 .. .good bot?
<sparkie> Melissa 3#d100: 35 88 100 .. .good bot?
<Melissa> (( .... ))
<Melissa> (( that's a bad definition of the word good. ))
<Fennec|GM> lucky for you I'm not using all those rolls. :)
<Melissa> very :p

<Fennec|GM> She blinks. "The last thing I remember? I just spent what seemed like a week in some sort of freakin' HAREM where they WEREN'T EVEN SPEAKING ENGLISH!!! THAT'S what I remember!!!"
<Melissa> "You .... what?"
* Melissa stares at Angeline. "... and before that?"
<Fennec|GM> She sighs. "I WANT AN EXPLANATION!"
<Melissa> "So do I! A fewe minutes ago you were trying to kidnap me and was a flight attendant who shouldn't even BE here!"
<Fennec|GM> "I'm going to sue. That's it. You'll be hearing from my LAWYER for doing me PERMANENT IRREVERSIBLE PSYCHOCOLOGICAL HARM!!!"

<Fennec|GM> "What are you talking about?!?!? Melissa, this is INSANE!!!" She grabs you. "INSANE!!!"
* Melissa stands quickly, not wanting to be touched by the purple.
<Fennec|GM> well, there's a nontrivial amount of fabric intervening...
<Melissa> "You think *I* don't know that? I have fucking wings! Jesus Christ, we're in the 1850s because of some old lady, we have no idea how to get home and you just appear and no one knows why!"
<Fennec|GM> "What are you talking about?!?!?"
* Melissa tries to stand anyhow.
<Fennec|GM> She slumps down to the floor.
<Melissa> "I KNOW it's insane, but it's real and there is nothing we can do about it and I'm tired of people thinking I have answers or that it;'s all my fault because I HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE EITHER!"
<Fennec|GM> "My God! I'll end up in the asylum at this rate!"
* Melissa stops herself from saying "you did" in the nick of time.

* Melissa wills herself to glow green.
* Melissa explodes instead? :p
<Fennec|GM> Green sparks fly from your fingertips. =b
<Fennec|GM> (( failure insufficiently critical. ))
<Fennec|GM> "Erm. Can you do red, white, and blue? Maybe you could run a fireworks business."
* Melissa sighs. "No. Just green. It's my aura, and whatever magic I do is tied to it. I have no idea what that entails, since the person who was sort of teaching me had some accident, I think."
<Sandra`> (Just call me Jubilee. The worst mutant ever.)
<Fennec|GM> "You think?"
<Melissa> (( lol! yes :P ))

<Fennec|GM> "Okay, okay, it's been lovely speaking with you ladies, I think I'm going to wander off now, and see if these drugs wear off before too long, and hope I don't get in too much trouble... you think I could use a phone, maybe?
* Melissa sighs.
<Melissa> :"Just don't tell people the future, okay?"
* Sandra` just smiles and nods to her.
<Fennec|GM> "Oh, it's a quality magic show you run, really it is... good night, thank you..."
<Fennec|GM> She scoots over to the door, pauses gratuitiously, and steps out.
* Melissa shakes her head.
<Melissa> "... I give it 10 minutes before some comes back screaming..."
<Sandra`> "Yeah... I'll go with 30."
<Melissa> "I don't even know if it is angeline, or if purple possesses people or something...." *looks rather tired* "I feel like we're in some race and we're all blindfolded."
<Sandra`> "Or we could all just be chasing after that cheese, but it's really just a deadbolt fastened to a car battery.."
* Melissa nods.

<Sandra`> "Would purple be people then?"
<Fennec|GM> (( What's gold? :))
<Fennec|GM> (( We've actually had purple, blue, green, and yellow... maybe we need to invoke Orange and Red pretty soon. :))
<Melissa> (( Mel doesn't want more colours involved ;p 4 is bad enough :p ))
<Fennec|GM> er
<Fennec|GM> whatever
<Melissa> lol!
<Melissa> THAT would be cool :)
<Melissa> and mel can turn everyone into fairies for added effect!
<Fennec|GM> it was at least half your idea =)

<Fennec> oh, you blew up the chicken, too
<alcar> lol! How? :p
<Fennec> don't worry, I'll see about getting you a spare
<Fennec> well, not YOU, but you(pl)...
<Fennec> by throwing it out the window.
<Fennec> maybe it was some ancestor guardian spirit come to protect you from evil
<Fennec> and you GRABBED IT BY THE NECK and threw it out the window?
<Fennec> you INGRATES.
<alcar> lol. Mel didn't :P
<alcar> and wouldn't have.
<alcar> but after it exploded she's not likely to trust another.
<Fennec> if YOU were thrown out a window like that, don't you think YOU would explode?
<alcar> not literally :p
<Fennec> d100 Melissa explodes.
<sparkie> Fennec d100: 87 Melissa explodes.
<Fennec> Boom!
<alcar> Oh, well, if you put it THAT way :p

<Fennec> 01:35 <@Mary_jane`^> "You're changing the flowers."
<AlcarGM> stupid computer...
<Mary_jane`^> lol
<Mary_jane`^> fennec wants to see the game continue
<Mary_jane`^> he's so interested it's like a bad soap opera
* GeminiRai is too.

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I don't want to talk about that part, okay?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Wow... You sure? You've never hid anything from me... We can talk about it, if you want."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Well, it's not often your damn cook threatens to kill you if you, quote, "try what your mother did". End quote."
<Mary_jane`^> "Your mother?"
<AlcarGM> Nora nods.
<Mary_jane`^> "Your mother did it too?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Did what?! I never DID anything to Jeeves!"
<Mary_jane`^> "That was going to be my next question."
* Mary_jane`^ gets wide eyed and gasps
<Mary_jane`^> "OH MY GOD!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "WHAT?!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I think i know what your mom tried to do!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... you mean .... sex?"
<Mary_jane`^> "It makes so much sense! Your mom has to be a succubus too!"
<AlcarGM> Gabe stops, looks at both of you, then decides to just settle for being quiet :p
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... but I woulod have noticed if my mother wanted to eat people's souls!"
<Mary_jane`^> "No you wouldn't have, you didn't notice that YOU wanted to eat people's souls!"

<AlcarGM> The gate is opened by Jeeves, in person, holding a uzi in one hand .. and still wearing the apron.
<Mary_jane`^> "You're late."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Only thing I could think of."
<Mary_jane`^> "They're gone... I scared them off with my muscle." Flexing
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "I got a tire, and a tacer..." He looks at you both, then Kiesha.. :"ANOTHER one?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Anyway, for future refferance, most of claw cable is ninja."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, do you mind if we bring her in for some first aide?"
* Mary_jane`^ motions to her bleeding socket
<Mary_jane`^> "She's a werewolf."
<AlcarGM> Jeevesblinks at the ninja comment, then just nods. "I see. Well, I hope it's not contagious by blood then. Come in, girl."

* Mary_jane`^ wraps Kiesha's eye
<Mary_jane`^> "How old are you?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha winces as you do so. "Eight. But I'm almost nine!"

<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, Luna... Yeah, she's a Moonchild."
<Mary_jane`^> "Hey, I think you're around gabe's age."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "Do I even want to know what that is?"
<Mary_jane`^> "No."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "I see. And what are you," with a nod to you and Gabe.
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, Gabe is the fisher king, sort of the magical mayor of the city and I'm... not sure."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "She's the only hope the world has of not being destroyed some day soon," cheerfully.
<Mary_jane`^> "There's that..."
* Mary_jane`^ finishes up and follows Jeeves inside
<AlcarGM> Jeeves stops, looks at you, then says "Well.I shall not bother about updating my will then, shall I?" dryly
<Mary_jane`^> "Awww, You don't trust me?"

<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Luna's power was .. erratic. I grounded it. I didn't chain it, or her."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Liar! The moon is up and she's not glowing! I remember her glowing!"
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... okay. Hands up for who else wants to spank the werewolf?"
* Mary_jane`^ inhails deeply "Would you like to see if he's telling the truth?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I know he's lying!"
<Mary_jane`^> (( She's too young to understand a threat ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( A subtle threat that is ))
<GeminiRai> (( make your hand glow! ))
<AlcarGM> Gabe: I'm not lying. I'm not a magician and couldn't chain her. I *am* holding the power back so it comes back to her slowly and believe me I'd rather NOT be doing that becauseit bloody well hurts."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, that's a decent explenation. And Luna doesn't seem to object, right Luna?"
* Mary_jane`^ gives her an expectant look
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I want proof," angrily, in the pissed off "I'm wrong but I won't admit it" vernacular.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I used to be a fish."
* Mary_jane`^ drops her jaw
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "I vote that for a yes."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm sorry... WHERE exactly did that come from?"

<Mary_jane`^> I could open my own asylum
<AlcarGM> yes :p
<Mary_jane`^> <AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I want proof," angrily, in the pissed off "I'm wrong but I won't admit it" vernacular.
<Mary_jane`^> <AlcarGM> Luna: "I used to be a fish."

<Mary_jane`^> I am so using that one of these days
<AlcarGM> which? :p
<Mary_jane`^> "I used to be a fish"
<Mary_jane`^> just...
<Mary_jane`^> In the middle of a conversation
<Mary_jane`^> probably nostalgia
<Mary_jane`^> =p
<AlcarGM> lol

<AlcarGM> Luna: "I am the wind upon the wave, the hawk above the cliff, the thorn beneath the rose.." in a dreamy voice
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, what do you know about werewolves?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I am the hills where poets walk, I am the lure from beyond world's end, I am the spear that rears for blood, I am the tear the sun lets fall ..."
<Mary_jane`^> "She's gone..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I liek cheese," as if that settles the werewolf question.

<Mary_jane`^> I hope luna never has kids =(

<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, would you like some cheese?"
<AlcarGM> Jeeves puts tacos on the table, firmly. "Eat. Now. I'll get a first aid kit."
<AlcarGM> Luna nods. "Cheese. Cheese and lemniscate."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm affraid I can only provide cheese, because I don't know what lemniscate is."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Infinity, as a sideways eight."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Cheese is infinity. That's why cows are holy."
<AlcarGM> And with that,she begins eating.
<Mary_jane`^> "She is nuttier than a fruitcake."

<GeminiRai> I kinda want to see the moon get better.
* alcar nods. And since she's nuts, she can't explain what happened.
<GeminiRai> Luna is cool.
<alcar> me too. Tho her insanity makes for fun :p
<GeminiRai> All she needs is a replacement, right? She'd probably still be insane, thanks to growing up as Luna, being chained up, and living in a spirit trap, but at least she might be more stable.

<alcar> laywer npc chasing the party offering life insurance would be fun.....
<FirestormZero> lol
<FirestormZero> npc?
<FirestormZero> :)
<FirestormZero> PC with the party
<Aerdan> make it a monster.
<FirestormZero> who just watches dangerous things
<FirestormZero> that are happening
<Aerdan> at least then we can kill it.
<FirestormZero> lol
<alcar> Aerdan - it's a lawyter, Monster goes without saying ;P

<GeminiRai> also I figured a regular bus wouldn't be able to do anything to a ninja.
* alcar doesn't see why not.
<aslhk> alcar, because ninjas are super|337!
* alcar makes a note to rnu one over in fin de siecle.
<alcar> possibly a few times, just so they can be sure the ninja is dead/.
<GeminiRai> alcar, assuming the ninja doesn't feel like getting out of the way, he would just jump up into the air and plant his feet on the front of the bus, and adjust to the change in speed.
* alcar assumes that ninja get distracted, too.
<GeminiRai> possibly, but the same concept applies!
<alcar> Pretty girl walks by. "Hi!" Ninja who spent life in training and has never seen a prettty girl before. "uhmr ... *pant* *pant*" *gets hit by bus*
<alcar> pretty girl notches off scorecard and goes looking for more ninja

<WarezBert> i think the next char i do for any campaign of yours alcar
<WarezBert> will be a megalomaniac that truly believes in the butterfly effect, or can actually deliver provable results based on that theory :)
<alcar> What's not to believe? :p "When I find the butterfly, I will rule the world!"
* WarezBert waggles his finger! who knows what vile and devious deed he just perpetrated! perhaps a tornado in colorado!
* alcar nods. A person who was the effect would rock.
<WarezBert> hehe
<WarezBert> the funnest thing would be dramatic fight scenes
* WarezBert picks up a piece of lint, and with a deliberate and careful motion, tears it in half. You go into shock!
<alcar> "Today, I discovered that everything is connected. Everything affects everything, sooner or later. We are one. There is no duality. No subject/object. All is subject. You are deluded if you think you are over there and I am over here. THIS IS THE TRUTH! Do you even THINK about what happens if you leave the toilet seat up or down? DO YOU?!"
<alcar> etc. :p
<WarezBert> we are all figments of an extremely ill drug addict.
<WarezBert> the real world has a provable god.

<Fennec> ah well; I *have* come up with a grand old conspiracy, now, to explain what's going on...
<alcar> "It's all a dream."
<Fennec> nope... not-quite
* alcar chuckles. VR then :p
<Gemm> It's all a nightmarish reality show dream.
* alcar always did want to run a D&D game that turned out to be nothing more than virtual reality and pepper it with advertisements for companies and the like.
<Gemm> heh
<alcar> would be fun. Could be wildly inconsistent and still make sense.

* alcar almost ran a game without you! :p
<Chaos`^> roflmao
<Chaos`^> how do you run without any players? ><
* alcar is not sure. But I could have!

<Sandra`> "Were I younger I might have seen that as really cool. But right now... I dunno."
* Melissa turns back and nods. "I know. A few years ago it might have even been an adventure. Now it's just really strange and nothing makes sense at all."
<Fennec|GM> (( that's mostly because I run out of ideas and conscious thought capacity by the time sessions are over, but still! =b ))
<Melissa> (( :p ))

<Sandra`> "I think I killed her. Not entirely sure. But the part of the train her and I were on sort of... exploded I believe."
* Melissa blinks. "What?!"
<Melissa> "But ... how?"
<Sandra`> "I, well that is, the blue man told to get rid of her. Or make her stop. One of the two."
<Melissa> "... stop doing what? What did you do?"
<Sandra`> "So, I ended up ripping up her comic books that she was reading. I guess that I finally thought that that was the source of her... power."
<Melissa> "... and that blew up a train?"
<Fennec|GM> (( just one or two cars... :))
<Melissa> (( heh ))
<Sandra`> "I dunno. I sort of blanked out after that."
<Fennec|GM> what? you didn't black out, you just cruised along to the mansion. you missed the bus, so you had to walk, and got their late. =b
<Melissa> lol.
<Melissa> Sandra needs a teleprompt? :p
<Fennec|GM> she sure could use one ;)
<Sandra`> =P
<Fennec|GM> well, you know what they say
<Fennec|GM> about memory being 90% made up after the fact :)

<Melissa> "So much for that idea . . . " *sighs* :"I wish I knew where Miss C. was. And how Adam left her place. She at least knew something about magic."
<Sandra`> "What idea?"
<Melissa> "That your aura meant you could do a kind of magic, or could learn it, or was infused by it or something." *shrugs* "It was just a guess. It would have explained a bit, which is probably why it didn't pan out," wryly.
<Sandra`> "What are you talking about?"
* Melissa blinks, puzzled for a second. "What?"
<Sandra`> "You said aura."
<Sandra`> "And you're talking as if magic is real."
<Melissa> "I thought I meanted that earlier ...." *blinks* "I have .. wings. If that isn't magic.... "
<Fennec|GM> (( she has a pair of !$!$!$! fairy wings on her back, and she's "talking as if magic is real"? :))
<Sandra`> "Wings? Why haven't I noticed those before?"
<Fennec|GM> (( well, we MENTIONED them... ))
* Melissa 's jaw drops. "How couldn't you?"
<Fennec|GM> (( maybe it's dark... ))

* Adam`^ knocks on the door
<Fennec|GM> d100 knock
<sparkie> Fennec|GM d100: 65 knock
* Melissa looks up, surprised, then goes over and opens the door a crack.
<Fennec|GM> (( Your knock is successful!!! =))
<Fennec|GM> It's the Grim Reaper.
<Fennec|GM> I mean, Adam`^.
<Adam`^> (( SHHHH!!! ))

* Melissa nods. "That makes sense ... damn it. We need to find someone to give us a run down about what all the auras do."
<Adam`^> "You could try the library. It never fails."
<Melissa> ".... they have libraries now?"
<Sandra`> "He's right. I've been told libraries are rather useful buildings."
<Adam`^> "Yeah... But I think right now they sort all the books by color."
<Sandra`> "That's where I met my current ex-fiance."

<Adam`^> "Anyway, let's head to the library, they should be opening soon."
<Sandra`> "Ummm... no. I was trying to find the place myself earlier."
<Melissa> "Okay. How about we see if we get lucky about something at the library? Maybe someone knows Mr. Blue, or what the swirly thing is .... if not .. I have no idea."
<Fennec|GM> (( so she walks into a random investment firm and proceeds to interrogate one Mr. Ebeneezer Scrooge... ))
<Melissa> (( lol. Seriously? :p ))
<Fennec|GM> (( yeah ))

<Adam`^> lolz
<Sandra`> I don't have mcu past experience. What with being a male and all.
<Melissa> better than Mel. It would never even have occured to her to try :p
<Adam`^> You gotta be like
<Adam`^> "C'mon, just tell us... A favor for a--favor."

<Fennec|GM> He gulps. "The detective might help."
<Melissa> "Detective?"
<Fennec|GM> "On Baker Street. Holmes, I think."
<Fennec|GM> He glances at Melissa, then stares, blinking a few times as if realizing something.
<Melissa> "... Sherlock holmes....? You're saying SHERLOCK HOMES IS REAL?!"
<Melissa> (( probably not the expected response :p ))
<Iota> (i wish this discussion were ooc :D)
<Fennec|GM> He ignores the remark, apparently fixated by those ornamental structures attached to Melissa's back, somewhat puzzled.
* Melissa blinks..... then realizes there's not much she can say to recover from that.....
<Fennec|GM> "... What are you?!?!"

<Fennec|GM> d100 swipecard
<sparkie> Fennec|GM d100: 45 swipecard
<Adam`^> I have to roll to swipe a card? =p
<Melissa> Do you HAVE a swipe card skill, punk? Huh? DO YOU?
<Fennec|GM> Adam`^- well, to tell you the truth, I forgot the BUSINESS card and the SECURITY DOOR reader could even be used together, so this is for me to make up my mind :)

<Adam`^> "Show me an orb book."
<Sandra`> (Did you mean, "Show me a book, orb." ?)
<Sandra`> =P
<Adam`^> (( No, it's like a phone book, but with orbs ))
<Sandra`> (oh... well, weird.)
<Melissa> (( "Show me the Paginarum Fulvarum!" ))
<Fennec|GM> The orb blinks blue a few times, and goes dark.
* Adam`^ sighs
<Melissa> "Try the Paginarum Fulvarum."
<Adam`^> "The what?"
<Melissa> "Yellow pages."
<Adam`^> "Paginarum Fulvarum?"
* Adam`^ sighs
<Melissa> "Well, it's no more silly than orb book."
<Adam`^> "Show me Paginarum Fulvarum."
<Fennec|GM> The stars above you flicker and go out.
<Melissa> "... or ... maybe we offended it....."
<Adam`^> "We killed it, I think."
<Adam`^> "Maybe it doesn't understand latin."

<Melissa> Sure, leave me to kill it via Sandman reference :p
<Fennec|GM> hmm?
<Fennec|GM> no, Sandra shut it down in the control room.
<Fennec|GM> She's trying to reboot into Windows.
<Melissa> .... into .. windows....
<Sandra`> heh... its true. =P
<Melissa> and I thought ADAM would do something bad :p
<Sandra`> lol

<Fennec|GM> who | grep -e blonde | date ; cd ~ ; unzip ; touch ; strip ; finger ; mount
<Fennec|GM> ; gasp ; yes ; uptime ; unmount ; sleep
<Fennec|GM> -- Unix is a dirty operating system

<Fennec|GM> Adam`^- you turn up some interesting things which seem to indicate that interesting files stored on a NFS fileshare that refuses to mount and that there are a couple of interesting binaries, including but not limited to...
<Melissa> (( it wants sex?! :p ))
<Fennec|GM> 'map', 'bloodybunn', 'losersore', 'freelance', 'oceans', and 'wet'
<Adam`^> (( A friend of mine used to tell me: If all else fails, crack the case and make sweet sweet love to com port 3 ))
<Fennec|GM> I name my fun executables after Sluggy Freelance plots. =b
* Melissa nods. Yeah., The bunn one was fun :p

<AlcarGM> "Luna": "You made me inside. Your power, given to a MAN. There are some things that can never be forgiven. NEVER."
<AlcarGM> What are you doing? :p
<Mary_jane`^> "I did nothing to you."
* Mary_jane`^ is trying to stop her from stripping her mind
<AlcarGM> Luna: "You did. I smell her sin upon you, her crime. I ...." She blinks, then her eyes get wide. Her voice is suddenly young and scared. "no! I remember! Secrets. Secrets and lies!" And she is gone, as if she was never there at all, her last glance a look of complete terror of you.
<AlcarGM> Kiesha is curled up on the floor, whimpering and smelling of burnt fur.
* Mary_jane`^ just stands and blinks a few times
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head
<AlcarGM> OUtside you can hear controlled gunfire, and snarling.
<AlcarGM> Gabe's voice is little more than a croak. "What .... did you .... .. show her?"
* Mary_jane`^ sits down and runs her fingers through her hair, too frustrated to think rationally

<Mary_jane`^> "What do you pay for power?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "H - humanity. Burns away. Only moon left... only wolf .... only freedom .. instict .... "
<Mary_jane`^> "Is it a price you're willing to pay?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha looka up, truth meeting truth, unable not to answer. "No," she says, her voice breaking.
<AlcarGM> The howls outside change, turning into snarls.
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "They'll kill me now," in a relieved tone.
* Mary_jane`^ stares into her eye(s)
<Mary_jane`^> "Why are you doing it, then?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha smiles strangely. "For ... anything. Something ... meaning. Just .. .dead end school, dead end life..... was ... gun .. killing at our school, last year. No one ran. Everyone waited. They shot Herman. He said a word.. before he died.. "shoot" .... we would .. all have been him. I see my - my parents. White.. trash. See me becoming them. No hope .. no future .... moon .. anything better than that... but .... it would be all of me..."

<Mary_jane`^> "You can be more than that, without selling your self."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "The .... power .... yours. Gift .... to change .... the moon .. only take more.... if you ... give more..... if you ..serve. It's ... old.... law. Binding."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha looks up at you, her eye distant, bitter. "Everyone sells themselves. That's how the world fucking works!"
<AlcarGM> Jeeves ducks his head inside the door, firing. "They're coming. Thirty left," tersely. "Nora can't keep a storm up forever, can she?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Not as much as you did."
<AlcarGM> err, firing back out the door :p
<Mary_jane`^> "No."
* Mary_jane`^ stands
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Didn't ... know. Do .. now. Can't .. .should .. but ... I can't . .damn you!"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha manages to stand, shaking. "WHY DID YOU GIVE ME HOPE YOU BITCH?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Jeeves, do me a favor."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: 'Shoot her?:"
<Mary_jane`^> "Just take care of her... Knock her out if you have to, I'll take care of the rest, I took fenrir, thirty wolves are nothing."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha turns, almost too fast to follow. "Yes," she says, fiercely. Jeeves blinks, looking at her, then stops smiling.
* Mary_jane`^ walks out of the door

<AlcarGM> Nora: "So ...." she looks, then starts laughing weakly. "This is .. absurd. What do we DO with them?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I don't know... They will keep trying and healing..."
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head "How ironic."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "You ... can't," from behind you, wheeling himself arround ruined trees slowly and carefully. "They've gone too far. If Kiesha hadn't taken a piece of your power, you'd never have got her out. They .. want this. They want power."
<Mary_jane`^> "So what do we do with them? We can't kill them."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "They'll .. .change back ... soon ... But .. no idea."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Call their parents to come pick them up? imagine having to explain tressspassing to mom and dad...."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Imagine .. having the ... power .. to kill .. mom and dad.. for angering ... you...."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Oh."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "That's disturbing."
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah... not a good idea."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well... Werewolves... Werewolves... What do you do with werewolves."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "..... well, silver was a bust. Jeeves did that. They seem to get power from the moon and think like a hive mind .. " She shrugs.
* Mary_jane`^ yells in on them "Stop hurting yourselves, it's useless..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Resistance is futile."
<AlcarGM> The werewolves snarl angrily and hit the wall as one .... there's maybe a small crack, at best

<Mary_jane`^> "It seems everyone wants us dead. I'm going to sleep, maybe I'll have a happy dream where no one wants my heart to stop beating."
* Mary_jane`^ walks back inside and looks around for kiesha
<AlcarGM> Gabe falls asleep in the chair halfway back to the house. Kiesha is on a couch, sleeping the sleep of the drugged :;p
<AlcarGM> nice, deep, restful.
* AlcarGM asumes you go to sleep so the scene can end? :p
* Mary_jane`^ carries her to a bedroom with a large bed, and sleeps next to her...
<AlcarGM> Nor spares the energy to poke her head in. "Lesbo cradle robber," cheerfully, on her way to bed.
<Mary_jane`^> OMG She is so dead in the morning

<alcar> the idea of all those students milling around wanting to be shot because it's better than the future they see before them was damn disturbing. And dark :p
<Chaos`^> this is a pretty dark game though
<Chaos`^> i wish i could have saved them
<Chaos`^> but, i think i'd rather owe fenrir
<Chaos`^> because he and I have a common ground
* alcar nods. I never exepcted it to get as dark as kids wanting to be shot :p

<Chaos`^> the only person I want to see dead right now
<Chaos`^> is the fate lol
<alcar> lol! Why? :)
<Chaos`^> 'cause she's NICE but she knows she can't die, unlike MIMIR
<Chaos`^> They're a study of contrast
* alcar laughs. There is a plot in waiting for her to be able to die and create new fates, if it ever comes about.

<Mary_jane`^> "Ready?" To nora
<AlcarGM> Nora finishes and nods. "Yeah, but I bet you didn't study for the math test."
* Mary_jane`^ stands
<Mary_jane`^> "Math test? There's a test?"
* Mary_jane`^ walks out the door "When did I have time to studdy for the math test?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I got an email about it last night. Supposed to be some pop quiz thing."
<Mary_jane`^> "Great... Maybe jake can help me on the way to school, he's math so he can help..."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "Maybe the questioning will last through the class"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... he's math .... do I even want to know what that means?"

<AlcarGM> Jacob is waiting across the road. Almost exactly where the werwolves and friends were skipping yesterday, but that's just a coinicidence. Really.
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "What did you do last night?"
<Mary_jane`^> it's a convergance of...
<Mary_jane`^> what are those power lines called?
<AlcarGM> ley lines.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Hi. Nice to see you're fine too. Is there some angel commandment about no small talk?"
<Mary_jane`^> yes, which is probably why nora's mom picked this spot for the house
<AlcarGM> it was built by Nora's grandfather :p
<Mary_jane`^> "Thou shalt not make friends."
<Mary_jane`^> who is probably the devil!
<AlcarGM> (( ...... no comment :p ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Hi jake, how are you today?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "You could just Look and find out."
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh my god he doesn't understand..."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I think you're making her point here." She takes the corner quickly, whistling to herself. "I like green lights."
<AlcarGM> Jacob looks worried. "Something happened?"
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head "Let's just go."
<Mary_jane`^> "Yes, theres a math test today and i didnt study"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "... and this is important?"
<Mary_jane`^> "My mom will kill me if I fail math!"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "No, she won't."
<AlcarGM> he says in a rather ... final tone :p

<Mary_jane`^> "You ever been to the hills?"
<AlcarGM> You drive south to the hills. All green lights, of course.
<AlcarGM> Kiesha crosses her arms and says nothing.
<Mary_jane`^> "You can't do that all night..."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Want to bet?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You talked!"
<AlcarGM> She immediately looks rather chargined she spoke :p
* Mary_jane`^ smiles cheerfully to her
<AlcarGM> She glares at you.

<AlcarGM> She looks back out the window, glaring at it instead of you. "I would have liked being a wolf," sulllenly
<Mary_jane`^> "No you wouldn't have. You and I both know that."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "No, I don't! Anything would be better than becoming like my parents, and my friends. Even that. I wouldn't have - have to worry about things, or care mabout crap, or any of that. I'd have just been a wolf."
<Mary_jane`^> "A slave, Kiesha, you know the price you'd have to pay for it."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Maybe that's better than being free and having problems and stiuff you can't do anything about because you're just a kid!"
<Mary_jane`^> "You won't be a kid forever, but you would have been a slave for the rest of your life, if not longer."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: ".... stop making it look bad!" She glares at you again. "I don't even like you and you're acting like I should!"
<Mary_jane`^> "Would you rather have things to care about, people to love you, people to love. Or would you like to have someone tell you what to eat, who to kill, what to destroy who you like and who you hate?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm making it look bad because it IS bad! You can't hide from the truth."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "No one loves me," flatly. "I SAW that, thanks to you. They're all .. thinking about themselves, wrapped up in themselves. They just petend to!"
<AlcarGM> (( which could actually be true..... :p ))
<AlcarGM> (( But I'd rather it wasn't. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Which? ))
<AlcarGM> (( her statement :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( LoL ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Anyway, if you're looking for a different kind of love you have to find it elsewhere. You can't make someone change the way they love you."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "... I think I could. If people can become wolves, and call up storms, and be cities .... I bet I could find a way to."
<Mary_jane`^> "What would you sacrifice in the process?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I aleady did! I lost my EYE, thanks to you!"
<Mary_jane`^> "People love their kids in different ways, be it out of necessity, because the have to or what, it will still come out in the end. But you can't say they don't love you, because they do."
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head
<Mary_jane`^> "You'll have to sacrifice more than that to control love. Why do you think it hasn't happened yet?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Somoning storms, becoming wolves, being citties, that's all OLD it's been going on for ages. No one has controlled love."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I think it has. My mom loves Bush."

<Mary_jane`^> "Anyway, the point is that power can't do everything. There is always a sacrifice, and it's usually grater than you're willing to pay."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "What have you paid then?"
* Mary_jane`^ sighs and frowns
<Mary_jane`^> "So far?"
<AlcarGM> The girl nods.
<Mary_jane`^> "For one I can no longer blind myself from the truth, just like you. A part of my soul is bound to the power, and its taint. Everyone that knew Arthur and hated him, hates me because I have Excalibur. That's not to say what will happen. My life is slowly being ruined by the power, I don't have a normal life anymore."
<AlcarGM> "That's it?"
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head
<Mary_jane`^> "Some of my friends will be sacrificed durring the battle with arthur, I will likely die as well. I will be chased by mimir in body and spirit and if I do not become someone's slave in life I will likely in death."
<Mary_jane`^> "It's not a fun picture to look at."

<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Why?"
<Mary_jane`^> "It's my price."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "For what?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "What do you have that you LIKE about it?"
<Mary_jane`^> "My power, being the saviour of the world no one wants saved..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, I'm saving the world for ME, for everyone that doesn't see what good it will bring and to torcher mimir."
<AlcarGM> (( lol ))
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "... no one wants the world to be saved?" a little disbelievingly. "And from what?"
<Mary_jane`^> (( We have amutual disagreement ))
<AlcarGM> (( almost pities Mimir. ))
<Mary_jane`^> "All the old powers are exactly that, old. They want to die they want to see everything end they can only see the bad mingled with some good."
<Mary_jane`^> "Arthur, the new king in hell wants to control the world and likely end it."
<Mary_jane`^> "If he doesn't end it, he will control it and give it a fate worse than hell."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "What's a fate worse than Hell?"
<AlcarGM> (( "Starbucks as far as the eye can see..." ))
<Mary_jane`^> "A world controled by Arthur."
<Mary_jane`^> (( LoL! ))

<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Your ..friend . .who glows..... I saw...." she shudders. "He's ... not human ...."
<AlcarGM> (( so says then werewolf.. :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "The one who tried to heal you?"
<AlcarGM> She nods.
<Mary_jane`^> "He's an angel."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, an angel posessing a human's body."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Oh. But - but there was so much . .anger in him. And... hate. Like ... vengeance... I thought angels were good."
* Mary_jane`^ opens the trunk and grabs two backpacks, and hands Kiesha the smaller
<AlcarGM> She takes it without a glare.
* Mary_jane`^ nods
<Mary_jane`^> "He's... Killed before. It changes a person."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "oh..... but .. I did. As a wolf. I killed animals ... and some kids who wouldn't change, I think. It's .. hard to remember."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "And I'm fine."
<Mary_jane`^> "Demons, humans, animals, it doesn't matter. Everytime you kill something, you kill a piece of yourself too. It's the price you pay. Nothing is free, not even life."

<Mary_jane`^> "You don't always do everything for yourself, atleast, not for your enjoyment. I want to save the world because I know this isn't the end. Everyone tells me it should be ending but I know it's wrong. I am willing to pay for my belief with my life. My friends know the price too and are willing to pay as well."

<Mary_jane`^> "You don't always do everything for yourself, atleast, not for your enjoyment. I want to save the world because I know this isn't the end. Everyone tells me it should be ending but I know it's wrong. I am willing to pay for my belief with my life. My friends know the price too and are willing to pay as well."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I don't get that." She shakes her head, looking confused.
<Aerdan> . o O (I do, though. >.>)
<AlcarGM> (( well, yeah :) Kiesha can't think of anything worth dying for tho :p ))
<Aerdan> . o O (Then again, I'd probably be one of the ones that would rather see the world end because it'd erase the stupidity of humanity.)
<Aerdan> . o O (She needs a lover.)
<Mary_jane`^> "Some people think that you do things for only yourself, I don't believe them though. I just know it's not right so I'm going to stop it."
<Aerdan> . o O (Or a child. Either works. :) )
<Mary_jane`^> (( She's 8 ))
<AlcarGM> (( lol. She's 8. A child wouldn't be the best idea :p ))
<Aerdan> . o O (That explains it.)

<AlcarGM> You have a tent, a fire that is NOT blue ... thoughn it flickers ocassionally.... marshmellows, sticks, and quiet. It's restful, the fire crackles, and you find yourself actually relaxing for the first time in days
* Mary_jane`^ is quiet for a long while, staring at the fire and roasting marshmallows
* Mary_jane`^ blows on one that has started on fire, and tries to grab it and drops it, hissing
<AlcarGM> For some reason, that reminds you of a certain ninja ... and the hairs on the back of your neck prickle.
* Mary_jane`^ looks around her and sucks on her burned thumb
<AlcarGM> You don't see anyone, which means they must be there.
<Mary_jane`^> LoL!

<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Is something wrong?"
* Mary_jane`^ puts her sword next to her
<Mary_jane`^> "Not yet. I just get the feeling we're being watched."
<AlcarGM> "Oh." She puts a stick in the fire, then sniffs. "I smell people...... soap, too."
* Mary_jane`^ nods "Atleast they have good hygene."
<Aerdan> . o O (*snerk*)

<AlcarGM> A voice, from your left, "Ah .. excuse me? The dart did hit you, right? Only Andre - .. errr, Mal3, thinks it might have missed. And they have really good poison in them, so you should be sleeping right now."
* Mary_jane`^ looks to her left
<AlcarGM> You, of course, don't see the ninja. Since it;'s dark out and that's the point of ninja, when not installing cable TV at any rate. He did sound about your age though.
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh.. Well, I'm not sure... Maybe I'm just dreaming, could you come closer and if I see you then I'm obviously dreaming because I'm not supposed to see you. Right?"
<Mary_jane`^> The ninja
<Mary_jane`^> are idiots
<Mary_jane`^> I intend to prove this
<AlcarGM> actually, they're not ... they just play by a different set of rules than everyone else.
<Mary_jane`^> The rules of IDIOTS

<AlcarGM> The ninja is wearing the classic black pjs, sword, second sword, throwing starts, dart gun, rope, grappling hook, 10 tortches, lantern, shove, short sword . .wait, wrong game.
<AlcarGM> The ninja DOES have the swords, darts, throwing stars though. it's a wonder he can stand and walk, let alone be silent.
<GeminiRai> 10 torches?
<GeminiRai> TEN torches?
<GeminiRai> And a lantern?
<AlcarGM> D&D :)

<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, I see you... The darts must have hit. I am totally asleep right now. Can you leave me alone now?"
<AlcarGM> The ninjas hand moves, and more darts fly at both of you almost too far for the eye to follow
<Mary_jane`^> "Hey, no fair!"
* Mary_jane`^ tries to dodge it and draws her sword
<AlcarGM> You manage to, surprising the ninja and yourself.
<AlcarGM> Your sword comes out, blue fire flickering arou nd it.
<Aerdan> . o O (Really crappy ninja. *snicker*)
<Mary_jane`^> "I said I was asleep, why didn't you believe me?"
<Aerdan> . o O (lol)
<AlcarGM> The ninja frowns, looking annoyed. "You really should be unconscious. I told Mal this wouldn't work, but no ... he had to make a plan." pause. "Oh, I;m sleeping too, though! Isn't this fun?"

<AlcarGM> What do you want to do about the ninja? :)
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I don't have to kil him. I could just nibble some bits off."
<AlcarGM> Ninja: .oO(I knew I should have become a doctor like mom wanted.)
<Mary_jane`^> Laying there silently is torcher enough
<Mary_jane`^> "No, you can't go around eating people, it's wrong."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha blinks. Stares at you. " But it's meat." She pokes a hot dog. "Like this. Eating meat isn't wrong.:"
<Mary_jane`^> "But it's people. You just don't eat people."
<AlcarGM> Ninja .oO(Or a lawyer. I could have been a great lawyer. Or ballet dancer. Or shoe polisher.)
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Meat is meat."
<Mary_jane`^> "Haven't you ever heard of canibalism?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Geeze! It's not like I'd eat wolves. Just humans."
<AlcarGM> Ninja .oO(...)

<AlcarGM> "Finally," a voice says beside you. "Do you KNOW how long I've waited for you to be alone? Oh, wait, you probably do."
<Mary_jane`^> "No, actually... I don't."
<AlcarGM> Darelle smiles at you. "Oh., I think you do dear. You did help kill me."
<AlcarGM> end of scene ! HAH!
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<GeminiRai> hahhaa
<Mary_jane`^> THat's not funny alcar
<AlcarGM> It's, like, a cliffhanger :)
<Aerdan> Haw.
<AlcarGM> and the stuf she wants to cover would take a bit, time wise :P
<Mary_jane`^> you know what i'm gunna do?
* Mary_jane`^ is now known as Chaos`^
<Chaos`^> I'm gunna go to bed
<AlcarGM> LOL!
* AlcarGM shall run a session without you then! HAH!
<Chaos`^> let's see you run THAT by yourself!

<GeminiRai> Can I attack the city?
<Chaos`^> no
<GeminiRai> :(
<Chaos`^> go to bed!
* Chaos`^ Quit (Quit: )

<Mary_jane`^> "Listen, darelle, You tried to kill me, twice it seems. Right now you're being arrogant and condescending, none of which are qualities I like in a person, I trust you about as far as I can throw you, which considering you're a ghost isn't very far. I'll listen to your warning and look out for whatever it is I have to look out for but I'm not going to go around attacking every angel I see."
<AlcarGm> Darelle: "Oh, you won't have time to attack if if she doesn't want to be. The dead learn things the living aren't allowed to. See things, sometimes. There are angels with free will." She chuckles, but there is nothing behind it. Even the IDEA of it angers her, and terrifies her. "For the thins God would never admit to doing, the things no one should ever know about. Things done during the dark of the moon, or in daylight. It does not matter. If the angel wishes to kill you, you will be dead."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs and runs her fingers through her hair
<AlcarGm> Darelle: "It is warning so that, perhaps, you can convince the angel not to. And to see how you explain it to your eartwhile guardian, of course. I think of it like soap opera."
<AlcarGm> (( If she was more, erm, personaable she'd get into how the dead use seances to manipulate the living to amuse themselves :) ))

<AlcarGm> The fire dies. It's dark, and sound still hasn't returned to the hills. Ghost or not, enough of what Darelle was remains and the animals emain silent, hiding in burrows and praying to gods amde out of coke cans and other human waste.
* Mary_jane`^ enjoys the silence
<AlcarGm> The stars look back, distant and remote. You remember the old story about angels getting their wings, and there's a LOT of stars out there. It's not a pleasant thought.

<AlcarGm> You sleeep, and dream .....
<AlcarGm> (( one sec, need to put it up :p ))
<AlcarGm> oih, what time is MJ planning to wake up? She does have classes Thursday :p
<Mary_jane`^> 'round 5
<AlcarGm> k
<AlcarGm> http://alcar.suddenlaunch3.com/index.cgi?board=fgame&action=display&num=1111911747
<AlcarGm> (( wrote that one down during English class :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> You must hate your teacher

<Mary_jane`^> is she a hotty?
<Mary_jane`^> women in uniform are so sexy
<AlcarGm> lol. To MJ? :p
<Mary_jane`^> To her player!
<AlcarGm> :p
<AlcarGm> Yeah. She's one of those women wo ispretty without make up and will likely never advance to Detective unless very luck because everyone will hold her looks against her and, if she does, assume she slept her way to the job.
<Mary_jane`^> she deserves more than that!
<Mary_jane`^> MJ's player has decided to make her an npc
<Mary_jane`^> He's a sucker for women in uniform
<AlcarGm> lol.

<Mary_jane`^> "Jake."
<AlcarGm> He's standing behind you in a moment. Rinner screams in shock.
<AlcarGm> Jacob: "I told you not to go alone .. wait .. this isn't outside the..." He trails off, looking at the gun Rinner has pointed at his head.
<AlcarGm> Rinner: "Don't move!"
<Mary_jane`^> "Jake who did this?"
<AlcarGm> Jacob turns, ignoring Rinner, and blinks. "Your ...." He walks towards the bed.
<AlcarGm> There is a click. "I don't know what you are, or who you got in here, but on your knees!" Rinner says. The other officer has opened the door, donut forgotten.
<AlcarGm> Jacob ignores them entirely, a rather disconcerting experience for police officers with guns.
<AlcarGm> Rinner: "Take another step and I shoot."
<AlcarGm> What're you doing? :)
<Mary_jane`^> Ignoring her
<AlcarGm> Jacob: "Put your guns down," his voice scraping the bottom of your soul like nails on a chalkboard. Guns clatter to the floor and both police officers just stare, confused.
<AlcarGm> Jacob steps up to the bed and peels off some bandages. Several machines beep indignantly and the heart rate monitor starts screaming.
<AlcarGm> He replaces them, golden flecks flickering in his eyes. "Nothing human." (("These blast points. Too accurate for sand people. Only imperial storm troopers.... or not :p))

<Chaos`^> Darelle really disapointed me
* alcar nods. Yeah. She couldn't disobey God, not even as a ghost. So she set MJ up to hopefully be killed by the other angel :P
<alcar> and, sadly, making the living dance to their tune IS the only hobby ghosts have
<Chaos`^> that's so depressing
<Chaos`^> I don't want to hear about it
* alcar nods. Well, they're stuck not in heaven or hell. Only makes sense. Good explanation for seances :)
* Chaos`^ shakes his head
<Chaos`^> you have too much time on your hands
<alcar> oh? :p
<Chaos`^> you need to think of happy things man, you're making me want to cry
<Chaos`^> go to bed!

<SnailSlug> The biggest problem that lies with making your own system is that if you somehow make it too good, you'll be hard pressed to find players because bad ones won't play because they can't break it, and good ones are already in a game

<Mary_jane`^> "Jake, what did you do to that guy?"
* Mary_jane`^ points to the officer struggling with the doornob
<AlcarGM> Jacob blinks. "I have no idea. he must have seen me."
<AlcarGM> Jacob walks over to the officer who has almost figured out how to turn the knob and says "Forget," gently. The officer blinks, looks at him on confusion, then opens the door and goes out to eat the rest of his donut.
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, jake, can you do that to like... Her?" pointint to the woman with the happy hip
<AlcarGM> Rinner: "Greys.. you're greys.."
<AlcarGM> The old woman looks shocked. "Please! I won't tell anyone I've been touched by an angel!"
<AlcarGM> (( "Old grandmother touched by an angel, and calls 911. "The pervert had his hands all over me, I tell you." ))

<AlcarGM> Rinner: "Don't come near me," to Jacob, gun in hand.
<AlcarGM> Jacob: ".... next time you want a healing, can it want until the police leave?" with a sigh.
<Mary_jane`^> "It was my brother, I was kind of... In shock."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Sorry." He looks at Rinner. "I am not a grey. Whatever that is. I'm an angel, technically, and your gun won't actually hurt me so just out it down and we ca talk about this reasonably."
<AlcarGM> Rinner hesitates. Even her idea of aliens doesn't include people in wheelchairs, unless it's secretly your flying saucer. She lowers the gun.
<AlcarGM> (( wheelchair flying saucers would be fun, too. ))

<AlcarGM> For some reason I want Merlin to be the head of Microsoft
<AlcarGM> maybe he'd accept it as a downgrade from Earth.
<Mary_jane`^> lol

<AlcarGM> your cell phone rings. ((BTW, MJ need a ringtone for it :p))
<Mary_jane`^> (( I need a special ringtone for my cellphone? You're joking, right? ))
<AlcarGM> (( it's vogue! And MJ could have some cool one :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Oh, i could get a ringtone, and then you could play the wav file over irc everytime it rings =p

<Mary_jane`^> "The world is about to end every day, one of these days I'm going to stop it."
<Mary_jane`^> "Then the next day it'll almost end again."
<AlcarGM> (( "Because it keeps pinging out" ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Second, I saw Darelle yesterday."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Alive?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Hardly... She was a ghost."
<Mary_jane`^> "Evidently when I killed her the second time she gave you ALL of her power."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "I ... suspected she gave me too much of herself, but that ...." he shakes his head. "I cannot imagine what it must be like, or why she has not asked me to return some of it, if I could."
<Mary_jane`^> "That's between you and her to discuss, I won't divulge her secrets. The thing she did tell me, that you need to know though..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Part of the reason the angel won't speak with you as well..."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "God wants me dead too."
<AlcarGM> Jacob looks at you sharply, catching something in your tone or face. "And that is?" he says, bracing himself (he thinks) for the worse
<AlcarGM> The angel walks right into the elevator with a thud, then steps back. "WHAT?!"

<AlcarGM> INside, your mother is yelling at Gabe. "And I've only seen you once and I'm sure you're no friend of my brothers and the nurse didn't see you come in so what are you doing?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "I told you. Praying for him."
<AlcarGM> Anne: "Oh? And that will help him, will it?"
<Mary_jane`^> "He's a friend of Sal's, Mom."
<AlcarGM> Anne: "Since when does Sal have friends?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Since when is having friends a bad thing?"
<AlcarGM> Anne: "Since I don't know about them, of course!"

<AlcarGM> this could be bad, Your mom might cut down on work to take a more active role in your lives :)
<Mary_jane`^> NOOOO!
<Mary_jane`^> she'll have to quit of she grows wings
<AlcarGM> lol. Good point :) "It's ... for halloween..."

<Mary_jane`^> "I'm fine, Mom. Anyway, all we can do right now is wait."
<AlcarGM> She nods and sits back down. "I'll .... try that. Tell .. .Tell Sal's friend I might even pray. And .. .that I'm sorry."
* Mary_jane`^ nods
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm sure he can pray too... You should accept that Sal can have friends."
* Mary_jane`^ stands "I'm going to go talk to him."
<AlcarGM> Anne: "It wans't that.. it's just ..... they asked questions, and I had no answers. It's like his life was one giant secret from me.... at least yours I know about. He just .. never talked, about friends, or school. Just things like... ftps, and pearls and a c++, which must be a really good c+ in a test...."

<Mary_jane`^> "Sal will be ok, eventually.. That's enough to keep me going."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Everything happens for a reason. I believe that." He looks down at his legs, then up at you and grins. "I sort of have to. Most people do, in order to accept things. Maybe it's only those who don't who really change the world, but change isn't always good. See, the thing is that we MAKE the reason as well. We give clouds silver linings. I think it's what life is about.
<AlcarGM> "Hope. Love. Friendship. Keeping going, for more reasons than to keep going. Because the first gift from the gods was fire, and if everything is darkness what is light for? I don't know, but I do know that once we answer hate with hate, and evil with evil, there is no difference between us and what we fight. And if there is no difference, then we've already lost."

* Mary_jane`^ rides in the car and is disapointed by the lack of the sound of water
<AlcarGM> hehe
<AlcarGM> Nora is going to be not pleased when she finds out :)
<Mary_jane`^> I have GOT to find a way to hide that thing
<Mary_jane`^> I wonder if I can make it like water and hide it in my sweat glands and whenever I need it, it forms from my hands!
<AlcarGM> lol
<Mary_jane`^> that would be awsome!

<Mary_jane`^> "You stole clothes from a homeless guy!?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "No. Traded... mine. For his. needed.. to be invisible. Even from God. Cut him from city... with some money... bought him a hooker. Like a new city, see. Keep .... the kid .... from finding me .... cuz .. I forget why..... Oh, Christ. Why is the sun so bright?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I can't believe I'm doing this..."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs "Give me your hand."
<AlcarGM> Blaise blinks, then does so hesitantly.
<AlcarGM> Jaymie frowns, wishing she had her gun :p
* Mary_jane`^ takes it "Eww.. Did you piss on this?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "No . .was someone else. Golden shower, to create rainbow...."

<Mary_jane`^> "What am I, if not human?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "The power .. changes you. Use too more, and you burn away your humanity. Like magic, except stronger that way."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Sometimes I think you're Chaos, but with squiggly things after your name. I don't know why."
<Mary_jane`^> (( They're not squiggly things, they're a wing >< ))
<AlcarGM> (( ... how is that a wing? :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( How is it not? it looks like a wing to me! down up down `^ ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( If i'm in a powerful mood i have two wings see, ^`Chaos`^ But i'm never powerful... That and Tamera took my matching set =( ))

<AlcarGM> Jayme drives her car there. The willow inn is ... .welll .... not the kind of place you'd want to live. You wouldn't be surprised if the roaches were renting out rooms.
* Mary_jane`^ rents a room with a shower =p
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "St. Gulik might be here. Patron saint, you know. He's a roach. He used to be Hermes."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Try not to step on him."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah... Ok..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Who's Hermes?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Messenger of gods. Keeper of the sacred chao ... or something. Got invented in the 1960s."

<alcar> oh., wow
<alcar> http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/tappingt.htm
<alcar> hehe....
<alcar> The Defenders found themselves unable to break their bonds and were trapped--doomed to die at the hands of the cane-whacking, dancing, singing robots.
<alcar> 4 ways players can rejoice I never found about him sooner. Or he'd have become the major villain
<alcar> just because.
<Gemm> lol
<Gale> :[ ]
<alcar> I mean . .tap dancing tommy. How can that not strike fear into people's hearts?! :p

<AlcarGM> In Municburg the cafeteria of the General Hospital is full. It's lunch time, and the good is actually edible provided no one asks what the meat is, or what they do with abortions.

<AlcarGM> Gabe looks over when he enters the room. "Took you long enough."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Something dark was in the maternity ward. I doubt human children would have been born there today, and what was born would have come after anyone here and killed them. Merlin doesn't like losing things, or demons botching orders I'd imagine."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Into other things?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Rainbow plants."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "That doesn't sound bad."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "It is." He doesn't elaborate.

<AlcarGM> Gabe: "What lies behind the dark. He heard the voices of the uncreated, from the stone."
<AlcarGM> Silence. Gabe looks up and grins. "At least, it's my theory. The foundation stone -"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "How do you know about that?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Because it's a secret. Secrets are useless if no one knows about them. So people do, and trade them, and fisher kings of my line collect them. Like merit badges. Most of it is useless now, but sometimes it's useful."
<AlcarGM> jacob: "It's a rumour in the House of the Lord. That is all."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Sure. And there's a species of immortal plants on this world that are slowly taking over humanity and replacing human cells with plant cells as they evolve to serve their godds, which are quasars."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "I thoght you didn't know about rainbow plants."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "... you're joking, right?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "No."

<AlcarGM> Nora: "So he's okay?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Dunno. He's inside his head, and it's dark and we can't get him out. Maybe MJ can, if - when she comes back."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "If?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Would you want to see your brother lying like this? I wouldn't, if I had one. And if I did, and I could, I'd find out who did it and make them pay. That's what I'd be doing."
<AlcarGM> He grins. "Well, probably not. Revenge is just about getting back power, not justice or anything like that. Someone makes you weak, so you attack back to be strong again."

<AlcarGM> It's close to noon and you're in the Willow Inn, the kind of "hotel" that rents by the hour, where the rooms are scuzzy and no one cleans the windows to thwart various detectivces from taking pictures of things.

<AlcarGM> The hospital feels different than it did before. A low humm of energy tingles along your skin, rather warm and not unpleasant.
<Mary_jane`^> "Hmm... What is that?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Energy, obvious. Someone is warding it. Rather extensively, it seems."
<Mary_jane`^> "Ok... I knew it was energy... I wondered what KIND. I'm not an idiot."
<AlcarGM> Blaise sniffs the air. "Angelic, I think."
<AlcarGM> (( so you better hope it's jacob :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Hmm... Probably jake, I asked Gabe to see if he'd help watch Sal.. I didn't think they'd ward the entire building though."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Overkill. Typical angel, then. One person mouths off and the next thing you know it's rains of fire and cities nuked."

* Mary_jane`^ looks at Sal "How's he doing?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "He is there, which is far better than the alternative, but lost inside his head. In darkness, and things behind the darkness. He is hearing voices that should not be heard."
<Mary_jane`^> "What?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise looks over at you, puzzled.
* Mary_jane`^ looks at Blaise "What?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe sighs. "Wizards. I bet he thinks that was an explanatiojn, too. He's in his head, MJ, and he's remembering things he's afraid of, the kinds of things people forget. The doctors are saying it's a coma. Magic probably can't get him out without making it worse, so you need real magic."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "That's what I said."

<Mary_jane`^> "I guess it's just a dream to think you'll get out of this without being scarred. Jake said you would be but I hoped you would be the exception. It's always that way I guess. I knew that my family was in danger but I figured they would be ok. I wonder what you were doing at night walking through the city. What could compell you to come out so late."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "I suppose it couldn't be helped that someone get hurt in this mess, I just didn't think it'd be you. I thought you'd be safe at home sitting in your room, doing whatever it is you do in there alone."
<AlcarGM> (( "It wass the GM, the bastard! ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Shhhh, I can't do that. ))
<Mary_jane`^> "I guess words are filled with power, but I don't know what I could say that would help. Gabe seems to think siblings have some secret language only they speak like aliens with wierd noises or something."
<Mary_jane`^> "Anyway, this doesn't seem to be working. I'm going to go get the others. For what it's worth, if you can hear me, I hope it helps you to know that you're my brother and I can't help but love you. I really hope that you can pull through this."

<Mary_jane`^> "Go on, tell me the story, it's ok, I'll listen to every word."
<AlcarGM> Sal: "But you won't believe!" angrily. "I tried to t-tell Mom, once, and she wouldn't."
<Mary_jane`^> "Tell me anyway, get it off your chest."
<AlcarGM> (( Sal: "I see dead people! HAH! GOT YOU!" .. too bad it's not in character for him :p ))

<AlcarGM> Sal: "But - but it could come back...." He gulps. "I-I'm scared."
* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head "DOn't be."
<Mary_jane`^> "I mean, they got what they wanted and left, right?"
<AlcarGM> Sal: "But they want me. T-they want fear. They want to - to eat it, and there's so m-much in me." He doesn't look away, though his face is bright red with shame. "I'm scared, and I can't stop it."
* Mary_jane`^ leans in and hugs him like a good big sister
<Mary_jane`^> "It's ok to be scared. Don't let them feed off of your fear, but you can still fear things."
<AlcarGM> He returns it desperately. "b-but they can come back..." mufffled.
<Mary_jane`^> "Don't worry about them. You're safe now. You can learn to fight them."
<AlcarGM> Sal pulls away from you, staring at you like you've lost your mind. "How?" he demands angrily.

<AlcarGM> poor kid.
* AlcarGM ups the evil of the fear demons by several notches
* Mary_jane`^ ups the determination level of Sal to become swordmaster several notches
<Mary_jane`^> =p
<AlcarGM> lol.

<Mary_jane`^> "So anyone seen jake?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "He's finishing warding the place, outside. I ... can't, so I asked him to do it."
<Mary_jane`^> "You... can't? Anyway, we can wait... Let's go check out the rainbow plants."
<AlcarGM> Gabe shakes his head. "Too many ... bad memories, here. I can't get past them to BE here, like the rest of the city. Didn't know it was that bad until today. Guess I didn't want to...."
<AlcarGM> Nora nods. "Your friend should let us down there..... " and end of scene!
<AlcarGM> Next session: Rainbow Plants! Fear demons! Ninjas*! Faerie comes!
<AlcarGM> * maybe. because each session planned with them, they never actually get to show up :p

* alcar nods. I had fun with Sal. Tho I wish I'd known half of what I found out earlier :p
<Chaos`^> ?
<Chaos`^> what's that?
<alcar> oh, what he did with the shadows when he was just a kid., before he buried the magic good and hard.
<alcar> he brought a few to life.
<alcar> so now there's some soulless people wandering around.
<alcar> in search of a plot :)

<AlcarGM> Nora does NOT laugh until you're outside. "Rainbow plants? What kind of name is that?"
<Mary_jane`^> "She has a point. Are you crazy?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "You have not met Zanthius. He is their prophet, and was here planting the seeds that became those plants. They are ... a fifth column, for one of the courts of Faerie. They replace humans with themselves and take over their bodies and no one notices until it's far too late. Those children are lost, and possibly most of that ward."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I think that's a vote for crazy."
<Mary_jane`^> "That makes no sense."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "Of course not. If it made sense, it would not be Zanthius' doing. He stumbled into faerie long ago and emerged able ot turn people into the fae. I thought the plants long destroyed, but it would seem someone found a few and decided to drop them into a maternity ward."

<Mary_jane`^> hey alcar
<AlcarGM> yeah?
<Mary_jane`^> i question your sanity
<AlcarGM> lol. Why?
<Mary_jane`^> rainbow plants?
* AlcarGM can get you the log of Zanthius's explanation of them
* AlcarGM is stealing the idea from him ... and he actually believed it.

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I still think it's nuts."
<Mary_jane`^> "I think I have gone insane, and somewhere someone is pumping me up with meds and hoping I don't bruise myself on the padded wall."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I wish that was true." she shakes her head. "Are you sure you really want him to teach you stuff? He's not exactly all together..."
<Mary_jane`^> "He's all I've got."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "That scares me...."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "What does?" from behind you.
<Mary_jane`^> (( "Me too... HOLD ME!" ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Blaise."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Most magicians are insane, though. How else can they do magic?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I dunno... Fiction.."

<Mary_jane`^> OMG
<Mary_jane`^> i just realized something
<AlcarGM> what?
<Mary_jane`^> The mad hatter was a powerful wizard that conjured up the world of Wonderland and pulled Alice into it to become his apprentice
* AlcarGM laughs
<Mary_jane`^> It only makes sense
<Mary_jane`^> they were both insane

<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Uhm .... we're going to be demon hunting. Have you told him anything about, well, you?"
<Mary_jane`^> "No."
<Mary_jane`^> "I don't plan to either, as far as he's concerned I'm just an innocent bystander that is driving the car."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: ".... you think he'd believe that?!"
<Mary_jane`^> "He can believe what he wants, I'm not telling him different. You can tell him, if you want."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "That makes no sense."
<AlcarGM> Jacob appears, along with Sal, who is looking more than a little shocked. "What .... where...?"
<Mary_jane`^> "It doesn't have to makes sense, I am not going to tell him that I am destined to fight some random man from the past and will probably die and the world will most likely end. Tell him if you want but-- Hi sal."

<Mary_jane`^> "Fine... Take us."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Okay......" He takes a deep breath. "Open up," in a perfectly normal voice. There is a sound behind you, like wings and a train whistle, and the room lurches abruptly. The walls don't seem to fit anymore, as if their perspective had gone skewed, and words are written in them in a a language you've never read. They seem to burn on the walls, in place of the graffiti.
<AlcarGM> Behind you the door to the shop has turned into bone and the floor is made of candy wrappers and blood.
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "This isn't .. uhm .. the most scenic spot, but we're here."
<Mary_jane`^> "What..."
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the candy wrappers and shivers
<Mary_jane`^> "What was in those?"

* Mary_jane`^ doesn't waiste time and uses all of her speed to run at the girl and disarm her... Litterally if necisary
<Mary_jane`^> that sentance was filled with so many spelling errors
<Mary_jane`^> I wish to disown it

<FirestormZero> is this knife similar to the one in UA?
<AlcarGM> nah, it's jack the ripper's knife. Being used by a psychotic raggedy anne doll :)
<FirestormZero> SWEEET
<FirestormZero> What game is this lol
<AlcarGM> Fin De Siecle :)

<AlcarGM> The end of the street is the end of the fog. The stret you see looks just like the city as you know it, except the people are different. Ghosts walk together hand in hand, several children are sacrificing a street mime to some dark Gods, caras are purring on the road, their headlights bright and hungry. A grey is sitting ina doorway, witha sign in its hand saying "will probe for food."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "As far as I know, but without their power. They'd be just damned, since everything in Hell falls, no matter how powerful it is."
* Mary_jane`^ tries to ignore it... this IS the forgotten place, afterall.
<AlcarGM> A small teddy bear toddles towards the group of you, its eyes and mouth sewen shut, and drops a small pamphlet on the ground at your feet protesting animal experimentation.
<AlcarGM> (( has this weird fondness for teddy bears in stuff.... ))
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the teddy bear, looking worried, and picking up the pamphlet
<AlcarGM> Sal: "What ... is this....?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Let's see... It's a pamphlet protesting animal experimentation."
<AlcarGM> Sal: "No .. I mean ... .all of it..."
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the bear "You're against experimenting with bears, I assume?"
<AlcarGM> The bear looks up at your voice and nods.

<AlcarGM> Thge bear nods again, more emphatically. It's head lolls forward dangerously, almost falling off.
<Mary_jane`^> "Do you need some help there? I think i have some spare thread somewhere.."
* Mary_jane`^ picks the bear up
<Mary_jane`^> "Your head's about to fall off, do you want me to fix it?"
<AlcarGM> The bear nods again
* Mary_jane`^ grins and pulls a few loose threads from her shirt and makes a needle of ice
<Mary_jane`^> "You're going to feel a prick in the back of your neck. I'll try to make it fast."
* Mary_jane`^ sews quickly
<AlcarGM> You sew the bears head back on properly. It whimpers a few times, but keeps still.
* Mary_jane`^ sets it down "There, that wasn't too bad. Does it feel better?"
<AlcarGM> The bear wobbles a bit, the nods again, reaching up to examine it's head, then it hugs your leg :)
* Mary_jane`^ smils and kneels down to it "Try to be a little more gentle with your nods, and if you need anything else, you can find me in the city, ok?"
<AlcarGM> The bear nods, its face radiating happiness at having marked you for food later on. Err. Just happiness. Really. Be happy you didn't unstich it's mouth ... err ..*coughs*
<Mary_jane`^> (( Why do you always have to make happy moments into bad ones, alcar? You just ruined the mood. ))
* Mary_jane`^ stands and walks
<AlcarGM> The bear wobbles away, humming something like happy birthday as best it can.
<AlcarGM> (( just being evil. An I WAS joking :p ))

<AlcarGM> The people move out of the way of your group without actually thinking about it. They notice power more here, and magic. You spot a kid making graffiti on the walls using his finger to draw it, an old man whose shadow is having sex with itself while he watches, a young boy crying softly as three girls pulls off his fingers and eat them.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Uh huh."
<Mary_jane`^> "Nora, I'm not joking. You can't solve everything by destroying it."
<Mary_jane`^> "Try to put yourself in their shoes."
<AlcarGM> a zombie whispers "Caviar, caviar," mournfully from an alleyway.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I think I'd rather not."
<Mary_jane`^> "You really do need to feel some more empathy for these people."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "They chose their lives," flatly. "We all do that."
<Mary_jane`^> "They have thoughts, feelings, wants, needs... They are just like you except for a few minor details."
<AlcarGM> (( like not being succubi, having thor's hammer, or having Odin want you dead... ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Don't worry about it Sal. If you really want to talk about god, and everything he is, talk to Jacob."
<AlcarGM> Sal: "What is he?"
<Mary_jane`^> "An angel. Now laugh."
<AlcarGM> Sal laughs. "Really?!"
<AlcarGM> The demons shrink, barely the size of ants now, stil screaming.
<AlcarGM> Sal: "THere's the dark, too. Even if they're not real...."
* Mary_jane`^ laughs along with him "Yeah... The really funny part, is that he was in the choir, and he was what heaven sent for me."
<AlcarGM> and something moves... something in the shadows that isn't demons. Something engulfs then, eating them .... something that doesn't exist, except in the darkness of the heart
<AlcarGM> Sal: "For you... why?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Either to save me or kill me. That's under debate."
<AlcarGM> He's staring at the shadow thing, scared, but it vanishes, as if sucked right into the walls.
<AlcarGM> Sal: "He wasn't kidding about the city...I felt .. something....." he trails off, returning from wherever, and his jaw drops; "KILL YOU?!"
<AlcarGM> (( and you can answer next session :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Gabe says you agreed to serve him, is that true?"
<Mary_jane`^> awww
* Mary_jane`^ is now known as Chaos`^
<Chaos`^> well he can answer next session too!
<AlcarGM> lol!

<AlcarGM> You're inside the shack that is now just a wooden shack, with a bed made up in the corner and various names and hearts carved into the walls. "AA+VL", "C+H", "MJ + PP" and the like. There are no used condoms anywhere. It feels oddly comfy,without the demons, but stifling as well. The walls seem to reek of rutting and the floorboards creak like people screaming.
<Mary_jane`^> pp?
<AlcarGM> of course :) Peter Parker.
<Mary_jane`^> hahaha

<Mary_jane`^> "Hmm... Maybe we should stay over night."
<AlcarGM> Even Gabe looks surprised at that.
<AlcarGM> "Why?" Sal asks. "This place is ...." he looks at a Golden Stout destroying a ninja and screaming out-of-sync catchphrases on a roof - "insane. It's too weird."
* Mary_jane`^ frowns "Is there a hotel around here?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, it needs help, is all."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Everywhere needs help, sometime. But I can't just go around and fix things to make them better." He frowns. "There's a Safari Lodge inn abo8ut three blocks west. They even accept money."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "I guess... We can't fix everything. And Sal needs to get back to the hospital before he's found out..."
<AlcarGM> Gabe grins, but it doesn't reach his eyes. "I'm not sure what can be fixed. I just .. nudge things. A social worker here, a friend saying something here, a homeless person going to the north end drop in shelter. People have to save themselves, though, or what's the point?"

<AlcarGM> You reach the fourth floor without problems. You can hear your mother saying "But is he all right?" to a doctor. Both are standing outside Sal's room. THe doctor is old, and looks rather tired. "Ma'am, we have no idea. He *shoiuld* have been scarred, and he's not. Frankly, we wouldn't be surprised if he shed a hundred pounces and started tap dancing the way things have been going today."
<AlcarGM> Anne glares at the doctor, ythen sighs. "Fine. But I'd like to actually talk to him. You have enough doctos in that room to poison the air, and an FBI agent! Did my son do something wrong?"
<AlcarGM> The doctor sighs. "No, ma'am - it's a routine inspection due to miraculous healings today and the unknown nature of your brothers assailant. The FBI is taking an interest, that is all."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
* Mary_jane`^ walks up to her mom
<Mary_jane`^> "Mom, the doctor is doing the best he can, just leave them alone..."
<AlcarGM> Anne turns around, surprised. "The best they can isn't telling us what's wrong!"
<Mary_jane`^> "They can't do anybetter... Can we go see him now?"
<AlcarGM> your mom is angry. Very angry. Probably at what happened, and that something that that shbould never have happened, but she's taking it out on others. Primarily the doctor. You can feel something under it, the quiet terror of a parent at outliving their own childrne, the fear that she has, somehow, failed you both and caused that....
<AlcarGM> (( guilt is so much fun. You get to fake responsibility and wallow in your ego :p ))

* Mary_jane`^ doesn't hesitate to cut him in half... he can't walk through the sword...
<AlcarGM> He blocks with the knives, and your feel your power diminish....
<AlcarGM> You cal feel him pulling it into himself, an empty voice sucking you dry.
<Mary_jane`^> (( Infact, I'd preffer if he walks INTO my sword, less work for me ))
* Mary_jane`^ releases and jumps backward
<AlcarGM> The agent on the ground is getting up, though given the door sticking throug his chest he shouldn't be.
<Mary_jane`^> "So you're going to play it that way?"
<AlcarGM> The MIB smiles, the darkness that was in his eyes now hi entire head. "Such power. A fine meal indeed."
<AlcarGM> The wounded grey does... something. You have no idea what. but the agent standing up behind you collapses,his head exploding. The grey's head does the same.
<AlcarGM> The grey holding Sal doesn't let go, but somehting rushes through your mind. Alien of no, its grief is very real and terriible. You feel it lash out, and the MIB you're fighting doens't even notice.
* Mary_jane`^ shivers, half of her a sprayed red
<AlcarGM> The doctor who was smoking has finally stopped, his eyes wide in horror. He's rooted to the spot.
<AlcarGM> The MIB frowns. "Hmm. Killed Anderson. Always knew he was a loser anyway. Who calls themseelves the Neon, anyway?" he says, attacking you.

<AlcarGM> Anne: "You fell asleep in the cafeteria. Don't you remember?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I see... Are those cookies ready to eat?"
<AlcarGM> She nods. "You can take some to Sal and his friend if you want. Oh! and what do you want for supper?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You're... asking me what I want?"
<AlcarGM> Anne looks at you. "Well, he got to pick lunck, so you get to pick supper. Is something wrong with that?" dryly.
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs
<Mary_jane`^> "Uhm... Your famous Uh... Famous... Ham..burgers.. Yeah..."
* Mary_jane`^ nods smiling, running up the stairs
<AlcarGM> lol.
<AlcarGM> Behld! Mum-ra, the fearsome!

<GeminiRai> when will excalibur and kusanagi suddenly become human and start making sweet love to each other.
<AlcarGM> ..... that's an interesting idea....

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I'm getting new ones. With air. And next time, don't fill them with water!"
* Mary_jane`^ releases her power over the tires
<Mary_jane`^> "I didn't MEAN to. If you want really light tires you should try hydrogen..."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "And have someone make the car fly?"
<Mary_jane`^> "It could be arranged..."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I don't think so. And I'm shopping for new ones, so kind of busy. Sal okay?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh, hey speaking of which, I need to talk to you tonight. Can you come over after dinner?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Sure. 7 work for you?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, they tried to kill him when Jake brought him back..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, 7's fine."

<AlcarGM> The grey cocks its head to the side, then frowns. *Static, then Hello?! Testing. Testing. One. Two. Three? Is this on?** in your head, the words planting themselves in your mind. Loudly.
<Mary_jane`^> "GAH! Volume!"
* Mary_jane`^ rubs her temples
<AlcarGM> The grey jumps, surprised, then **sorry?!** at a more conversational level. It's fingers twist in unnatural ways, and it looks distressed. **thought-wall less. More receptive. Sorry.**
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah..."
* Mary_jane`^ makes a mental note to take asprin later
<Mary_jane`^> "My mom... What did you do to her?"
<AlcarGM> Grey: **Fix?!** It's thoughts wash into you, searching, teasing open doors. **happy fix?? Sadness .... gone. Flown away. Like bird, yes?**
<Mary_jane`^> oh my god, he sounds french
* AlcarGM laughs.
<AlcarGM> mais oui! Err . .wait .. the french aren't aliens. Honest....

<AlcarGM> The grey takes a cookie and studies it curiously.
<AlcarGM> The grey studies the cookie thoughtfully, flipping it over.
<Mary_jane`^> "You eat it."
<AlcarGM> The grey looks up, puzzled, then brightens. The cookie just fades away, being absorbed right through the skin.
* Mary_jane`^ is affraid what the mouth is for, then...
<AlcarGM> (( yes :p ))

* AlcarGM uses.. dice!
<Sparkie> AlcarGM 4#d6: 2 6 5 1
* Mary_jane`^ uses I HATE SPARKIE
<Mary_jane`^> 14, do i win?
<Mary_jane`^> I plan on teleporting everywhere, so you'll be rolling all night!
* AlcarGM nods. Your dead cat is in the mail.
<Mary_jane`^> i don't get it?
<AlcarGM> you won the prize
<Mary_jane`^> o
<Sparkie> for 15 or higher you get deformed foetus.
<Mary_jane`^> stem cells!
<AlcarGM> But deformed foetus with sqirm-move(TM) and optional vestigal limbs!
<Mary_jane`^> uhm
<Mary_jane`^> KFC?
<AlcarGM> Nah, you'd need 20+ to get the deep fried version.

* Mary_jane`^ calls kiesha
<AlcarGM> A kid answers the phone, probably 14 or so, with "Dave?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Kiesha please."
<AlcarGM> Pause, then "Who the fuck is this?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Your fucking worst nightmare if you don't hand the phone over now."
<AlcarGM> Kid: "Oooh, I'm soooo scared. What do you want my sister for, huh?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I know where you live. Hand the phone over or I tell officer 'bob' where you keep your good stash."
<AlcarGM> lol!
<AlcarGM> pause, then "The little bitch is dead." The phone is slammed down in the receiver, rather hard.

<AlcarGM> Her brother is about 14 or so, and consists of leather jacket, distressing personal hygiene, a nose ring, and looks half-mad. e kicks Kiesha in the stomach, screaming "Who'd you tell?!" wildly. "If its the cops I swear I'll let Big Dave puse you like a cheap whore and cut out your other eye you slut!"
<AlcarGM> His name is Michael. His parents named him after the angel.
<Mary_jane`^> hahaha!
<AlcarGM> Kiesha doubles over with a hiss of pain that's half a growl.
<Mary_jane`^> "Violance is above you Michael. Haven't you ever heard of a bluff?"
<AlcarGM> Mike: "You want to growl, you bitch? I'll -" He spins around wildly, his face a picture of desperate need for acne cream and surprise. "WHO THE FUCK'RE YOU?" he screams.
<Mary_jane`^> notice how I didn't say 'you are above violence'
<Mary_jane`^> =p
<AlcarGM> yes :p

<Mary_jane`^> "What I was trying to call you about, was that I'm having a meeting tonight, at 9 the coffee shop at 12th and 21st."
* AlcarGM watches roads pop into existence.
<Mary_jane`^> (( Nono, they've always been there, I just made the NAME SIGNS appear ))
<AlcarGM> (( Oh, true. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( They're the only two streets in town with names =p
<AlcarGM> (( the others have names! I just can't be arsed to make 'em up. ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Good... Meeting starts at 9, coffee shop in Municiburg... If you need help finding it, then just look for Mjolnir, but if you go that route, don't come early, I haven't told Nora yet."
<AlcarGM> He nods again.
* Mary_jane`^ nods "THere's going to be a werewolf there... Try not to look too intimidating. I'll leave... Do you know where I can find Loki?"
<AlcarGM> Fenrir shakes his head.
<Mary_jane`^> "Hmm.. I doubt we can trust him, but... He did help my uncle... Thanks anyway.."
<AlcarGM> A growl from the bushs answers that :p
* Mary_jane`^ looks toward the growl
<Mary_jane`^> "I thought your pack left."
<AlcarGM> Fenrir glares at the bushes. The growl turns into a whimper that tries to sound defiant

* Mary_jane`^ looks at him "What do you know about the blade, Murder?"
<AlcarGM> Phil blinks. "The blade?"
* Mary_jane`^ nods
<Mary_jane`^> "The one Jack the ripper used."
<AlcarGM> Phil looks alarmed. "Please tell me you haven't used it," he says, and though he doesn't move there is something dangerous in his stance, even with the half-eaten sandwich
<AlcarGM> MJ: "I used it and I loved it!:"
<AlcarGM> PhiL :*stab, kill*
<AlcarGM> MJ: "I was .. only .. joking...."

<AlcarGM> next sesssion: NPcs! Many, many npcs!
<Chaos`^> yep!
<Chaos`^> you might need to recruit some of these people who sit around here watching us play =p
<alcar> lol. Few of them are on at this time and awake :p
* alcar mayu just have to blow up the cafe and reduce the NPC count.
<alcar> .. or not :p
<Chaos`^> haha
<Chaos`^> it's like the state of the union
<Chaos`^> you're taking a risk but the gain is awsome

<alcar> tho even Loki might have a lot of trouble hiding from every single pc and npc at the same time :p
<GeminiRai> a fly on the table. with bright red hair.
<GeminiRai> maybe not..
<alcar> hehe. Yeah .... Fenrir is sensitive to the presence of gods, esp. norse ones, and can drain their leetness...
<alcar> angels see a LOT. MJ sees truth ... Gabe is the city.. Nora's a bloody succubus.... Phil knows Loki ... hrm. He's screwed.
<GeminiRai> oh well, I'm sure he'll do it with style.
<alcar> ah well. He can show anyway. He'll be fun, and of course on his own side.
<alcar> And if need be he can sell their plans to Odin or Arthur.
<GeminiRai> lol
<alcar> he IS a trickster after all, and his plans do tend to backfire. "But I told Merlin a different plan!" ".. and you never thought the most powerful wizard ever could read your mind?" "... oopsie."

<AlcarGM> erm .... *frowns* Brain fart...
<AlcarGM> You arrive home a bit tired but pleased. Mom is out back cooking hamburgers on the .. thing outside hamburgers get cooked on whose name entirely escapes me for some strange reason ....
<AlcarGM> babeque!
<AlcarGM> At any rate, she's outside cooking them when you arrive. They smell rather good and you're hungry after ... teleporting to various dimensions and places. Not normal, but you're not sure what normal is anymore.
<Mary_jane`^semihere> lol
<Mary_jane`^semihere> alcar
<Mary_jane`^semihere> you sure you wanna run? you sound like you need sleep

<Mary_jane`^> back
<AlcarGM> wb
<Mary_jane`^> i just realized you cannot eat a popsicle without looking gay
<AlcarGM> Heh.
<Mary_jane`^> unless you're a chick I guess
<AlcarGM> "Why I got a sex change operation..."
<Mary_jane`^> yeah
<Mary_jane`^> 'cause popcicles make me look gay
<Mary_jane`^> lol

<Mary_jane`^> "Ok, now, look into my eyes."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "This is sooo gay." She does so.
* Mary_jane`^ concentrates on seeing the window to her soul
<AlcarGM> You lock eyes. Power flares.... and you look Inside her. Rain, and thunder. It's night, and there are no stars. You can hear cars, and see laughter that's a wall with old tears behind it, and the darkness is marmalade-flavoured, seeping thrugh pores, looking for ways out. Power is beihnd it, cold anger feeding it, nourishing it, heating it up. Thunder rumbles defiantly....
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the tears
<AlcarGM> They're old, childen's tears carved out of stuffed animals long ago, frozen now, and hard. You find yourself seeing deeper .... love, for her friend. Worry, for the same. A stark fear that you are going to die, that Arthur will win, and darkness under it. Darkness eating at it, becoming it, feeding the fear, turning it into anger, into hate....
<AlcarGM> and no, it's ot love in any sexual sense :p
<Mary_jane`^> damn
<Mary_jane`^> i mean
<Mary_jane`^> damn

* Mary_jane`^ tries to stay in as long as she can, actually practicing =p
<AlcarGM> Doing what?
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the fear, I suppose
<AlcarGM> The fear is anger . .hate.. darkness. You can feel it watching you, aware of you. It wakens, at some level, coming towards you, speaking words that sound like the hissing of flames
<Mary_jane`^> LoL
<Mary_jane`^> the fear that i'm going to die, is trying to kill me
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at it "Where did you come from?"
<AlcarGM> it's not the fear, ut something . .feeding on it, changing it .... something dark, something that knows that love is a universal language, and sorrow is as well. Something that understsands that the line between love and sex was broken long ago. Power, cold and ancient, older than the universe. Waiting, biding it's time....

<AlcarGM> Jaymie arrives just as you make it downstairs. Your mother answers the door with "Hello ..... uhm...."
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "I'm here to see Mary Jane?
<AlcarGM> Anne: "Oh. Aren't you a bit old to be a high school student?"
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: ".. what?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Thanks, mom, I have it."
* Mary_jane`^ pushes past her and shuts the door
<AlcarGM> Your mom gives Jaymie a puzzled look, then you. She walks back upstairs, wondering why all her daughter's friends are female .. then remembers the cute boy who is always waiting outside and is relieved. Then realizes he's a bit too handsome and marks him as gay, getting worried again.
<Mary_jane`^> roflmao

<Mary_jane`^> think of all the npc's
<Mary_jane`^> What are their weaknesses? atleast, their strongest weakness
<AlcarGM> Sal's is having an ugly sister ;p
<Mary_jane`^> Ugly?
<Mary_jane`^> WHO YOU CALLING UGLY!?
<Mary_jane`^> Jake's is being from the choir
<Mary_jane`^> Let's see... Gabe's is...
<Mary_jane`^> Hmm... What's Gabe's?
<GeminiRai> his lack of magics? his dependence on his wheelchair? the problems that will arise if someone decides to nuke the city? his fixed lifespan?
<Mary_jane`^> Well
<Mary_jane`^> a couple of them
<Mary_jane`^> also
<Mary_jane`^> he's on the second story of MJ's house
<GeminiRai> ? what, does the city only exist at groundlevel?
* AlcarGM got this aesome vision of the fisher king of Hiroshima wandering ruins and glowing in the dark as she weeps acid tears

<AlcarGM> She nods. "No one knows what happened with the tape. They think he just blurred, or something. But your descrption IS in the officee in the city, and sooner or later you will be brought in for questioning."
<Mary_jane`^> "No I won't. Not until the FBI secures the alien."
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "... you won't? Why not?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I won't be brought in, the FBI will take jourisdiction and they won't act until they know the alien is safe. Or dead, whatever they want."
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "The FBI isn't involved. Legally. They're letting local police handle the .. questioning, or so they say."
<Mary_jane`^> "I see, regardless they have to explain what happened to the body, and how I got on the roof, the door being locked and all."
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "They'll want you to explain that. In detail. I suggest you find a good lawyer."
<AlcarGM> (( Satan! ))
<AlcarGM> (( btw, your father is a lawyer in game, in case you forgot :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> ((... Fuck ))
<AlcarGM> (( Hobbes &C., iirc. ))

<Mary_jane`^> "You ever have to kill somebody on duty?"
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "No. Not yet."
<Mary_jane`^> "Don't, if you can avoid it... Every time you kill somebody... You kill a part of yourself."
* Mary_jane`^ looks her over
<Mary_jane`^> SHe's not wearing a wire or anything, is she?
<AlcarGM> lol. How would you tell? :)
<Mary_jane`^> She'd show it in her eyes
<AlcarGM> And it's a bit late to wonder that. You hear the sirens .....
<AlcarGM> j/k
<Mary_jane`^> haha
<AlcarGM> No, she's not :)
<AlcarGM> Tho it would have been a nice way to get out of massive NPC meeting :P

* Mary_jane`^ shakes her head "Glad to see you could make it, Kiesha."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha eyes Jaymie warily, like a deer in headlights. "You never said there'd be cops."
<Mary_jane`^> "Fenrir is comming as well, so prepare yourself."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha's eye gets wide, though she tries to sound tough. "No problem." .... then: "how do I prepare myself?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, well... His aura is mostly intimidation when he's not angry... So just get ready to sit as far away from him as possible... and don't anger him. You should be fine."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha just nods, crossing her arms and glaring at Jaymie.
<Mary_jane`^> "Jayme, this is Kiesha, a werewolf. Kiesha, this is Jayme, a police officer."
<AlcarGM> Jaymie gets a coffee and sits down.
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "A ... werewolf....." She doesn't laugh, though she looks close to it. Her mouth twitches. "I see. What happened to your eye, Kiesha?" in a parent-talking-down-to-kids voice :p
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Oh, nothing much. Mary Jane just stabbed me in the head," in her best I'm-just-a-kid voice.
<Mary_jane`^> "AH, Kiesha is more mature than she looks."
* Mary_jane`^ practices looking inocent
<AlcarGM> Jaymie blinks, then stares at you.m"You WHAT?!"
<Mary_jane`^> "This rasberry soda is GREAT!"

* Mary_jane`^ looks over to Jaymie "How an you stand to drink that stuff?"
<AlcarGM> Jaymie: "It's coffee. How can't you like it?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Coffee is the devil's blood. I should know," his voice cold and full of menance. Then be grins. "I always wanted to do that. Sorry, long day."
<Mary_jane`^> "It's COFFEE."
* Mary_jane`^ tries not to laugh at Jaymie's face
<AlcarGM> Jaymie glares at Jacob. "That wasn't funny!"

<Mary_jane`^> "We have one more to come, then we can begin."
<AlcarGM> Gabe doesn't look angry with her, right now, which is good. He grins. "Yeah. Would have to lower the wards I pit up, though. One second..."
<AlcarGM> and Fenrir appears in the far corner of the room, filling it with a dangerous wild smell. You feel a stab of aslhktavistic fear rush through you, the kind of terror men in caves had of the terrible animals ....
* Mary_jane`^ waits =p
<AlcarGM> er .. atavistic :p aslhk is scary, too, though!

<AlcarGM> actually, the forgotten NPC was Jeeves :) Solider. Weapons. :p
<AlcarGM> contacts.
<AlcarGM> He'd be useful :)
<Mary_jane`^> I didn't forget him
<Mary_jane`^> However if nora suggests it, he'd come
<Mary_jane`^> that's the reason he was left out
<AlcarGM> ah! I thought you had. I only recalled him after last night's game myself :)
<Mary_jane`^> nope i remembered him
<Mary_jane`^> but he threatened Nora, and I don't know if she'd want him to be in the whole deal, plus with her power acting up again...
<AlcarGM> yeah :p
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs
<Mary_jane`^> all she has to do is suggest it
* AlcarGM nods. Hasn't occured to her. She sti;ll thinks of him more as the cook :)
<Mary_jane`^> the cook who uses two Uzi's to fend off 30 werewolves
<AlcarGM> yes :p

<Mary_jane`^> "Also being a team means we need to cover eachother's weaknesses."
<AlcarGM> (( Jacob: "I am an angel of the Lord! I have no weaknesses! Ooh! Twinkies!" ))

<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Uhm. Minor point, but you're the one who is going to fight Arthur. Not me, or anyone else here. If we need help, you should be the last person we call."
<Mary_jane`^> "Why can't I help you?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "because if it was, say, the angel over his head, whatevercan take him out can probably take out you, or anyone else here. You're dying would NOT work. In this game, we can't afford to sacrifice the Queen."
* Mary_jane`^ shivers
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Uhm, Fenrir says he agrees, even if you can move lost of ... spaces? Oh. Chess. He means chess."
<AlcarGM> Gabe just looks at you. You are damn certain he didn't use the word lightly :)
* AlcarGM chuckles. It's one of those fun problwms with destiny and Great Hero Who Can Only Defeat evil ....
<AlcarGM> rational people would lock them away unttil the Big Evil came so they wouldn't accidentally die beforehand :0
<Mary_jane`^> yes, but I have ways around that =p
<AlcarGM> yeah :)

<AlcarGM> Mel comes in from her "smoke" break. Not Pot. Really...... "What the hell?!"
<AlcarGM> Nora wheels gabe out of what was the door to the back room. "Woah. What did you DO?" to you.
<Mary_jane`^> "Uhm... FORGET?" To mel
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Oh, right...." He looks at Mel: "Forget."
<AlcarGM> Mel: "but .... I forgot . .so much .... that I wanted Adam so badly...." and her face goes blank.
<AlcarGM> He does the same to Adam and frowns. The window and door reform, though he's sweating by the time they reform.
<Mary_jane`^> "TO everyone... Shoot... How do we clean up this mess?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Or not.. ok.."

* Melissa wonders when she does anything intentionally with magic. "HOw did a computer get here? Information for informaton."
<Fennec|GM> "If you've seen anything, that's information already."
<Melissa> "Maybe."
* Melissa smiles.
<Fennec|GM> (to Sandra`) "How much did you see?"
<Sandra`> "Maybe nothing, maybe too much. Answer Mel's question first."
<Fennec|GM> "This space is variable. It has no true form, only a function. Its visible nature was determined when you arrived."
* Melissa frowns, thinking about that. "Okay ..... that's better than real computers. I think?"
<Sandra`> "Then in all honesty, we've seen nothing."
<Melissa> (( lol! nice :) ))

<Fennec|GM> "Really, now, all I want to know is how much you saw here... it's a trivial affair, and then we can proceed with other matters."
<Melissa> "Such as?"
* Melissa tries again, of course, trying to just .... let the magic do what it thinks best.
<Fennec|GM> "Whatever you like. I will be happy to answer your questions, even."
* Melissa considers that. "Why's it so important to know what we saw, or didn't see?"
<Melissa> "Okay, fine. The death star plans are not in the main computer."
<Melissa> j/k
<Melissa> (( tho soo tempting :p ))

* Adam`^ stands and waits for her to leave, then continues on his way to nowhere
<Fennec|GM> You arrive at Nowhere, and see a real Nowhere-man, making all his nowhere-plans for nobody.
<Fennec|GM> He doesn't have a point of view; knows not where he's going to-- isn't he a bit like you and me?

<Fennec|GM> "They don't hate us; they simply like souls. Those with magic, perhaps, and other extraordinary traits, are tastier."
* Melissa nods. "And Sandra? Is she . ..safe?In danger?"
<Fennec|GM> "She's unlikely to be harmed further."
* Melissa is rather relieved by that.
<Fennec|GM> "I can't tell whether she'll experience any deleterious side-effects, though."
<Melissa> (( "We can just shoot her then. Adam has a gun. 'Take two of these and call me in the morning.' Bang. Bang. Nice and neat." ))
<Fennec|GM> (( haha, you think shooting her will get rid of her?!? ))
<Fennec|GM> (( haha, you think shooting her will get rid of her?!? ))
<Melissa> (( meant Sandra :p Nice cure :p ))
<Fennec|GM> (( I meant Sandra too. ))
<Melissa> (( well, one can hope :) ))

<Melissa> "I didn't even like him much. Or know him ...." to herself. Adam gets the feeling he could tell her he was a woman and get no reply :)
<Adam`^> "Something wrong?'
<Melissa> "We knew him and he's dead. That has to be something wrong."
<Adam`^> "No we didn't, we saw him like four or five times, he came back with us, and that's it... He was just some guy."
<Melissa> "... then he shouldn't have been."
<Adam`^> "Shouldn't have been what?"
<Melissa> "Not just some guy. I'm sorry. I'm being silly. It's just - it has to matter. He was with us, and he's gone, and they killed him."
<Adam`^> "People die, Mel, happens all the time. There's a bigger chance if it's someone involved in this big war going on between you three."
<Melissa> "I don't want to be in any damn war."
<Adam`^> "It's a little late for that, don't you think?"

<Melissa> hehe. Mel feels the same as Adam, really. SHe just thinks she shoudn;t :)
<Fennec|GM> you insensitive clod!
<Melissa> lol. Well, she's shocked he's dead, and Sad, but she never really knew him....
<Melissa> she's more sad that it didn't mean as much as it should.
* Melissa chuckles.

<Adam`^> "What else did you talk about?"
<Melissa> "I don't know. You. Your life. Is there anyone who would miss you, back home?"
* Adam`^ laughs
<Adam`^> "I doubt it. What did she say about me?"
<Melissa> "Who?"
<Adam`^> "Miss C. You said that you were talking about me?"
<Fennec|GM> (( I think Melissa inserted a [want to] in that 'talk about' phrase ))
<Melissa> "I was?"
<Melissa> (( yes. She's still a bit out of it :) ))
<Adam`^> "Ah, yeah... What about yourself, anyone miss you?"
<Melissa> "Some co-workers. People in the coven. Not that many people, when I think about it."
* Adam`^ nods
<Adam`^> "Mostly I'll be missed for my skills, but they were average to begin with."
<Melissa> "That's sad."
<Fennec|GM> (( are you trying to beg for XP to spend or something? :))

<Adam`^> "Ah, yeah... What about yourself, anyone miss you?"
<Melissa> "Some co-workers. People in the coven. Not that many people, when I think about it."
* Adam`^ nods
<Adam`^> "Mostly I'll be missed for my skills, but they were average to begin with."
<Melissa> "That's sad."
<Adam`^> "What? That my skills are only average?"
<Melissa> "That that is what you'd be missed for."
<Adam`^> "Oh... Well, I don't have any family."
<Melissa> ".. why not?"
<Adam`^> "They died."
<Melissa> "Oh. That mmust have been hard."
<Melissa> (( Adam: "Not really. I killed them myself." ))
<Melissa> (( come on, I know the truth! ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Some people can't hide from the darkness... It follows them."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "I know. It's why a jabberwock is following us. Sometimes I just . .want to fake being normal. Hrere.I could just ... cry. And then it would kill me, and you. It's ..a safeguard, or some kind. Proving we're not .... not weak, or something stupid like that."
<Mary_jane`^> "Jabberwock?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe nods. "It's .. big. Clawed. Eyes of ... flame, of a kind. They don't go to real worlds often, just .. soul places. Feeding on power, growing on it. Getting bigger. Like ... guards dogs. But worse:"
<Mary_jane`^> "Who do they guard?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Whoever's soul they're in, from everything. Even that person, if they are made to. My grandfather made that one. I can feel it behind us, waiting.... " He shivers. "And if I saw it, and you weren't here... I might have just .. given up."
<AlcarGM> The cirle at the top is a lot thinner than it was when younarrived, but it's stil there and glows slightly as you approach it.
<Mary_jane`^> "Does it look like a teddybear, perchance?"

<Mary_jane`^> damnit all
<Mary_jane`^> there just aren't enough hours in a night
<AlcarGM> lol. Yeah.

* Mary_jane`^ calls home
<AlcarGM> Your mom answers: "Good morning, dear."
<Mary_jane`^> "Good morning. Is sal in his room?"
<AlcarGM> Anne: "Of course. Do you want to talk to him?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Yes."
<AlcarGM> Thee is no undercurrent of "So you don't want to talk to your own mother?" .. really....
<AlcarGM> Sal answers a few moments later. "Sis?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah... Are you guys like psychic?"
<AlcarGM> Sal: "... caller id?"

<Mary_jane`^> Must...resist...urge...to...use...male...logic....
<AlcarGM> lol. oh? :P
<Mary_jane`^> Why would you need more shoes than you can actually wear?
* AlcarGM laughs. You're talking to someone who's good pair ofshoes have a hole right through then and whose bad pair used at work are literally held together by flip ons to prevent sliding around :p
<Mary_jane`^> See!
<Mary_jane`^> you and I...
<Mary_jane`^> We can see eye to eye

<AlcarGM> You buy .. shoes! Hopefully not many, thogh you could use a pair of really good runners.
<Mary_jane`^> Indeed
<Mary_jane`^> HOWEVER
<AlcarGM> however .. what?
<Mary_jane`^> this PC was built on the idea of a sexy heroin err I mean Heroine so, I have to, instead, go with the 'assassin high heals'
<Mary_jane`^> the kind that people can fight in, and still look sexy, the ones that are in all anime and movies?
<AlcarGM> lol! Sure :)
<AlcarGM> and you can stab people in the head with them as a form of murder.

* Mary_jane`^ tries them on and looks at Nora "What you think?"
<AlcarGM> not that MJ probabolt ever would... :)
<Mary_jane`^> Yeah, that too
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Those are so ..... high heals. I mean .. why? Yo can at least wear them .. but ick."
<AlcarGM> she's just jealous because she looks like she's walking on stilts when she uses them.
<Mary_jane`^> "What?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "High heels are so ... boring."
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs and walks up and down "I think they're great, I mean... I bet I could run a few miles in these things and still feal great... They're almost magical." (( They'd have to be to not break after all the abuse people put them through ))
<AlcarGM> (( do you want your pair to be red? :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Why do you ask? ))
<AlcarGM> (( red ruby slippers! You could put a teleport spell on them by clicking your heels together three times.... ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Ok, now Gabe... You need something stylish, and less functional... THat's pretty easy for women's shoes..."
* Mary_jane`^ goes to the men's section and grabs a pair of leathers "These look nice."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Uhm.. they're a bit expensive..."
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the price
<AlcarGM> :p
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "I mean, it's not like I'll use them."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Perfect. Then they won;'t wear out," wandering over with 4 boxes. "But you should get runners too. Just tell people you're going to be in the marathon."
<Mary_jane`^> "You don't know Nora like I do... She'll consider it an insult if you don't spend as much money as you possibly can.. She has a thing against her dad, I think."
* Mary_jane`^ bites her lip, trying not to laugh and glad she's looking at gabe's feet trying to fit the shoes
<AlcarGM> Gabe grins. "Which marathon?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "how should I know? Pick something strange."
* Mary_jane`^ hands Gabe a box "OK! next store!"

<AlcarGM> <AlcarGM> Nora: "Exactly. We could go for a walk in the park, or take on the whole Aztec exhibit at the cultural museum (Mom's on some board for it, only reason I know about it) .. or something, at least."
<AlcarGM> was the end of last session. You have shopped, and eaten lunch.
<Mary_jane`^> "Err... Museum... No.. How about... A movie."
<AlcarGM> (( awww :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( It's supposed to be a DAY OFF ))
<AlcarGM> (( it COULD just be a normal museum ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Do you know what happened, the LAST time a pc went to a musium in your game ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( But it ISN'T
<AlcarGM> (( ..Don't recall. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( 2 words, Mummy Vampire ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( I do NOT trust you around a museum ))
<AlcarGM> Quetzalcoatl wanders off to sulk, and the you go and see a movie instead then :p

<AlcarGM> And an email from Unkown@unknown.com "We know about the wolf. We saw it. Meet us tomorrow, 01100 am sharp at the baseball diamond behind the school."
<AlcarGM> unfortnately, for the sender, he included his signature. Ralph :)
<Mary_jane`^> LoL
<Mary_jane`^> damn
<Mary_jane`^> LoL!
<AlcarGM> and his friends, likely.

<AlcarGM> You are just finishing up the fun(?) of math when Jacob simple appears in the room without warning. There's a flaming sword in his hand and a small .. head? ... in the other hand. He sees you, blinks, and the sword vanishes.
* Mary_jane`^ blinks at him
<Mary_jane`^> "Something... WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?" perhaps too loud
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Is something.... Oh." A flick of red aura and the head is gone, melted. "A weapon of the other angel. She is in Paris and apparently did not wish to talk. At all."
* Mary_jane`^ sighs, relieved

<Mary_jane`^> lol
<Mary_jane`^> all I wanted
<Mary_jane`^> was a normal day
<AlcarGM> This doesn't count?! :p

* Mary_jane`^ kneels down infront of him and looks him over
<AlcarGM> Sal looks about to reply, then actually shows wisdom in not trying.
<AlcarGM> He's exhausted, simply. Whatever reserved he had were definitely burnt out, and the energy you fed barely made a dent. He was definitely in worse shape than he was letting on.
<Mary_jane`^> "You'll probably sleep for a week, but you need it."
<AlcarGM> He tries to say something, likely "I'm okay," but coughs instead. At least there's no blood. That's always god.
<AlcarGM> good, even.
<AlcarGM> Your cell phone rings.
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the call ID
<AlcarGM> good that there is NO blood :P

<alcar> poor grey :p
<alcar> engineering your species so you can't kill is good ... but makes their reaction to violence and hate really bad.
<alcar> Ooh! Bring it to see Ralph :)
<Chaos`^> ...
<Chaos`^> She's not bringing anythign to see ralph
<alcar> Aww.
<Chaos`^> she's going to see ralph and deny everything =p
<alcar> That sucks!
<Chaos`^> no it doesn't
<Chaos`^> deny deny deny
<alcar> "No, Ralph, that wasn't Fenrir. That was the cover for ---- this!" the grey appears
<Chaos`^> even if he brings proof you have to deny it all!
<alcar> MJ isn't the US goverment tho!
<Chaos`^> denial is the most powerful form in the universe!
<alcar> curses! Foiled by Law One.

<Chaos`^> ok, ready?
<alcar> yup
* Chaos`^ is now known as Mary_jane`^
<alcar> Okay!
<Mary_jane`^> only for a little bit
<Mary_jane`^> I really do need to sleep sometime this month

* Mary_jane`^ gets dressed quickly and begins walking toward the school at a liesurly pace
* alcar asumes you eat first?
<Mary_jane`^> Uhm... yes
<Mary_jane`^> Does something bad happen when i eat?
<alcar> Why would anything bad happen when you eat?
* alcar shelves ideas.

<Mary_jane`^> "Why... I'm sorry... What makes you think I am looking for brisingamen?"
<alcar> Ralph: "Because we know you are really Freyja."
<Mary_jane`^> "You...do?"
<alcar> He nods.
* Mary_jane`^ laughs... loudly
<alcar> Ralph: "You do not need to deny it. We know of your Seio and ...." he trails off at the laugh.
<Mary_jane`^> "What...heh..what makes you think I'M her?"
<alcar> Ralph: "We know you were Gullveig. who can slay the kindred of Fenrir. And we do not wish to tell you how we know. Suffice to say, we have means."
<alcar> Ralph .oO(She gives me a big boner.)

<Mary_jane`^> If MJ were evil
<Mary_jane`^> she would start a cult
<alcar> Nora would :p
<Mary_jane`^> that's kind of sad, that she's good =(

<alcar> what's really sad is I even gave Ralph stats :P
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<Mary_jane`^> ignorant(3) follower(2) nerd(2)
<Mary_jane`^> pervert (1)
<alcar> lol.

* Mary_jane`^ sighs "How can you help me evade 'them'?" Sounding affraid of the answer
<alcar> Ralph: "We have warded a secret place where they cannot find you."
<Mary_jane`^> "You've war-- Oh my god.. Now you're experimenting with magic you don't know anything about?"
<alcar> Ralph: "We have learned many things."
<Mary_jane`^> "From WHO... WHERE?"
<alcar> Ralph: "We have - sources. Some of them your people."
<alcar> Ralph: "The Alfar."
<Mary_jane`^> (( ROFLMAO! He even pronounces your name wrong =p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "The... Alfar?"
<alcar> (( lol. No :p is the actual name for 'em :) ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( I know, the elves, but it's funnier to think he's pronouncing your name wrong =p ))

<aslhk> and I hate the alleged word "comming" =P
<alcar> hm?
<aslhk> <Mary_jane`^> "You're comming with me."
<aslhk> for all of my lamerspeak, it still makes me shiver!
<aslhk> I do not know why!
<alcar> lol.
<alcar> at least it was an o, and not a u :p
<aslhk> lol
<aslhk> yes =P
<alcar> Though Ralph would have been "OH YES!" And censor beasts would have had to arrive :p

<Mary_jane`^> "So... What convinced you to do THIS?"
<alcar> Ralph: "We .. .wanted to help you..." he trails off.
<alcar> he still hasn't removed the stupid disguise., btw :)
<Mary_jane`^> "Who told you how to do it?"
<alcar> Ralph: "I'm not telling you," firmly. "You just want our secrets!"
<alcar> (( "our precious...." ))
<alcar> (( with sexual connotations of your choice, of course. ))

<Tass> you guys play too often :P
<alcar> lol. Yes :P

* Mary_jane`^ catches his eye again
<Mary_jane`^> "We can do this the easy way..."
<alcar> Ross: "Get away from ... " and he stops, unable to move. "That's .. not me..."
<alcar> Alex: "What the fuck is this?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Then who is it?"
<alcar> Ralph: "I told you, she's Freyja!"
<alcar> Ross: "I'm ... special. I'm not normal .. I'm ... better than ..." He's gasping now, his eyes wide in horror.
* Mary_jane`^ breaks eye contact... too much truth can hurt =p
<alcar> Ross falls to the ground, sobbing and saying "not true.." over and over.
<alcar> (( yeah :P ))
* Mary_jane`^ sighs
<Mary_jane`^> "I can't help his denial."

* FirestormZero is now known as FSZDM
* FSZDM is now known as FirestormZero
<alcar> short game? :p
<Fennec> heh
<FirestormZero> yeah
<FirestormZero> i gave 3 gold
<FirestormZero> and 10xp
<FirestormZero> :)
<alcar> seriously? :p
<FirestormZero> yes
<FirestormZero> haha

<FSZDM> I'm doing it! I'm Going the distance!
<FSZDM> hahaaha
<AlcarGM> lol. oh? :p
<FSZDM> lol a 10 minute game, a 2 hour game, and now a 2 minute game.
<AlcarGM> lol.

<Mary_jane`^> "Ross, just look at me."
<AlcarGM> You're not doing it right now. He's terrified you will.
<AlcarGM> He does, whimpering.
<Mary_jane`^> "You can change this... This doesn't have to be you."
<AlcarGM> Ralph: "What did you do to him?" in a tone somewhere between horror and awe. He's staring at you and the remains of the psyche of one of his friends as if you were a complete stranger
<AlcarGM> You suspect his crush might be over now.
<AlcarGM> Alex is just scared and saying nothing at all.
<Mary_jane`^> forget them, I'm busy with ross =p
<AlcarGM> Ross says nothing. Whatever he saw when he really saw himself definitely broke something.
<AlcarGM> (( Ways to stop annoying friend from having crush on you #237: Show one of his friends the truth about himself and make the friend watch. ))

<Mary_jane`^> "You don't have to be that way, you can change."
<AlcarGM> Ross: "I can only be me," slowly, stumbling over the words. "No one else. No - no one else. No one ... special ..."he hugs himself and starts rocking in place.
<Mary_jane`^> (( You're going to make this more difficult than it should be, aren't you? ))
* Mary_jane`^ closes her eyes and breathes deep
<AlcarGM> (( Uhm. Make what difficult? You showed him who he really was. It's a wonder he's not dead :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Ross... The fae are an illusion. You can't be one of them."
<Mary_jane`^> (( See! You ARE making it difficult ))
<AlcarGM> Ross: "Ross is just an illusion to," as he rocks. "He thinks he's special and unique and better than other people and he's just a conceited asshole who wants to get into his sister's pants."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I vote we pretend we never heard that."

* AlcarGM has a fun image.
* Mary_jane`^ doesn't like it when you have fun
<GeminiRai> someone has to have fun. And you're all going to a MUSEUM
<Mary_jane`^> yeah
<Mary_jane`^> If this turns out bad
<Mary_jane`^> Chaos will never go to a museum again in alcar's games
<GeminiRai> genetic fear of museums.
<Mary_jane`^> something like that
<Mary_jane`^> this is his last chance to redeem himself
<AlcarGM> lol.

<Mary_jane`^> "Let's see... we need to go to somewhere with a christian history... WHere's that?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I can't think of a place without it.... uhm ..... middle ages?"
<Mary_jane`^> "What about the exibits for the middle eastern territory... Let's try there..."
<AlcarGM> Okay. You make your way to the thrid floor, which houses the middle east, but not Israel for political reasons.
<Mary_jane`^> damnit
<Mary_jane`^> so where's israel?
<AlcarGM> The air feels ... strange as you go up. Like there's a pressure around you, building as you go higher.
<Mary_jane`^> oh... that works too
<Mary_jane`^> Hrm...
<AlcarGM> (( second floor, beside the USA. Along with the Phillipines and cuba. One of the designers was a political studies major :p ))

<AlcarGM> The security guard looks up at you and blue lights flares in his eyes. "You have come," he says in a woman's voice, quiet and assured. "That is good."
<Mary_jane`^> "It's ok... we can use mundane tactics... Ok... I'll seduce the guard, everyone else go inside while he's bussy."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Seems you already did...."
<Mary_jane`^> "indeed..."
<AlcarGM> "He defiles Mictlan," the guard says in the same voice. "He must be punished for his transgressions."
<Mary_jane`^> "Mictlan?"
<AlcarGM> NOra: "I don't like the sound of this. Maybe we can fake a bomb threat and send in a SWAT team?
<AlcarGM> Security Guard: "You would call it Hell."
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, that's what we need, more people defiling..."
* Mary_jane`^ hrms
<Mary_jane`^> "Great... I've come... I can't use power... Now..."
* Mary_jane`^ looks around "I have to fix this..."
<AlcarGM> The security guards eyes burn with blue fire. He's drenched in sweat. "He dared translate the book of the dead into klingon," the entity possessing him says in righteous fury.
<Mary_jane`^> ...

<AlcarGM> The exhibit is dark and cold as the four of you enter. Emergency lighting is on, but not much else. (Conserving electricity, or something more sinister?) You pass exhibits of rare treasure and statues... only to hear voices, from the far end. Strange, hollow whispering, and swiishing... "Ra! Ra! Ra!" the voices chant.
<Mary_jane`^> Great
<Mary_jane`^> the last person we need here is Ra
<Tass> lol!
<Tass> cheerleaders!?
<AlcarGM> yes :)
<AlcarGM> egpytian mummy cheerleaders
<Tass> oh lord, thats why they say ra :P
<AlcarGM> yup :)

<AlcarGM> You round a corner, trying to be quiet, and see a large open space, eerily similar to your dream. A circle, about 10' wide, drawn with salt and blood. In the middle, surroundede by candles, the wizard is sitting cross legged, chanting in a language you'd never heard. He's painfully thin now, almost all skin and bones, but his power is a living thing around him, cold and deadly.
<AlcarGM> However, what draws your gaze are 4 mummies, mostly rags, dancing togther in unison by the cirlce, saying "Ra!" over and oover, and waving pom poms made out of bandages.
* Mary_jane`^ blinks
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I really hope they're here to stop us," in a horrified voice, "Or I'm going to have some nightmares about his sexual fantasies."
<Mary_jane`^> "Excuse me..."

<AlcarGM> The wizard is standing slowly, painfully, and leaning on a staff of some white wood for support. He looks like he's either a famine victim or a victim of the atkins diet.
<Mary_jane`^> or both!

<Mary_jane`^> "Hmm... And how do you get unbound?"
<AlcarGM> Mummy: "Killing the caster breaks the spell," softly.
<AlcarGM> The mummies look at each other. You have the disturbing impression they're smiling. "Do you mean the wizard harm?" one asks, or perhaps they all do.
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh... Not at all."
<AlcarGM> They nods to each other and move aside.

<AlcarGM> Nora: "Fuck this." She spins and kicks a display case containing a vase, glass shattering.
<Mary_jane`^> "Nora, stop."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "What? Let's see how he takes a few things in hishead."
<Mary_jane`^> "No, nora, don't."
<AlcarGM> Nora hefts the vase, then looks at you. "Why not?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Because I don't want you to kill anybody."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "It'd be a favour to this planet."
<Mary_jane`^> "No, let him kill himself."
* Mary_jane`^ thinks about this and looks at the mummies
<Mary_jane`^> "The wizard... He... Intends to harm himself."
<AlcarGM> Grey light flares from the circle, stabbing towardds the four of you.
<AlcarGM> (( ROFL! ))
<AlcarGM> The mummies look at each other, then at you. "Well .. we can't have that... can we? We are to protect him from all harm...."
* Mary_jane`^ holds out the feather to block it
<Mary_jane`^> "Yes... Yes you are."

<AlcarGM> Nora is there with Gabe, in the back. She's bought pizza, and is saying, "I don't care what he did ...." She looks up. "The ... uhm . .wizard is dead? That sounds so stupid...'
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Good. Here's some greek pizza then.... uhm ... is something wrong? You look like someone hit you in the forehead with a 2 by 4."
<Mary_jane`^> "Also, on an unrelated note, I am Luna's mom."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "..... what the fuck?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe actually looks up at that, and blinks. "You're .. .what?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Yeah, that was my reaction."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "So ... you ... ah ... have to say "I am your mother, Luna" and cut her hand off?"

<Mary_jane`^> "Let's just go... I'm in the mood for milk shakes."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Then we bring the pizza. This stuff costs more than drinks as a starbucks. It's kind of scary."
* Mary_jane`^ looks Nora over
<AlcarGM> she's trying to lighten the moon, perhaps a bit too much :p
<Mary_jane`^> "Are you serious? You just spent on a pair of shoes but you want to take along a pizza because it's a little expensive?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "These pieces were 4 dollars each."
* Mary_jane`^ takes a piece and eats it
<AlcarGM> it's rather good, actually. And you find you are a bit hungry. Attempted heart attacks do that, it seems.
<Tass> (lighten the moon? har har :P)
<AlcarGM> (( *grins* ))

<AlcarGM> The skyt is gtting cloudy outside and it's abit brisk as you leave. Droves of lemming - err, tourists, are still going into the museum. Possibly it eats some.
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<AlcarGM> It's a post modern baptist gothic museum with 10th dimensional aliens in the basement. It's allowed to eat tourists.
* Mary_jane`^ just goes to the car

<Mary_jane`^> (( "if I'm luna's mom... Does that mean I used to be a fish too?" ))
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))
<AlcarGM> (( well, kusanagi IS a sword of water.... ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Great, I'm saving the world so everyone can have icecream."

<AlcarGM> Nora: "So, what can we do? I mean, the wizard's dead. Whoopdeedoo. I doubt we did more than mildly inconvience Merlin or Arthur..."
<Mary_jane`^> "Atleast we mildly inconvienced them... Ever consider learning magic? You should ask blaise about it sometime."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Why would I want to? He's nuts."
<Mary_jane`^> "He's the sanest wizard I know."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "All the more reason to not learn magic then."

<Mary_jane`^> "Huh? Oh, right... What was gabe talking about, making pacts with spirits or voices or whatever?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "He was not wrong. The power comes from within, yes, but not all of it. A magician always needs more, always desires more. To defend against enemies, to make themselvres strong, just for the rush of something new. Thee are many reasons, and many beings who wll offer up power for allegiances, or gifts, or donations."
<Mary_jane`^> "So the prices he's woried about are for wizards that only want more power or ultimate power or whatever... like Merlin?"
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "At some level, magic is about crossing lines. We all makes lines for ourselves. We say: 'This far we will go, and no further', but magic is about going further. I have seen people sell the souls of their loved ones for a century of life before. I once sold my shadow to a demon for a time." He nods. "All wizards want more power. There is never enough, not for the magic they need, not to succeed. Magic is the power of the gods, Mary Jane. The power to do anything. But you need energy to do anything, and power behind power, and alliances, and wards ...."
<AlcarGM> Bliase: "And the Gm probably wrote too much and it was cut off."
<Mary_jane`^> "As a matter of fact, he did."
<Mary_jane`^> Magic is the power of the gods, Mary
<AlcarGM> Jane. The power to do anything. But you need energy to do anything, and power behind power, and alliances, and wards ...."

<Mary_jane`^> "Do me a favor."
<AlcarGM> The room is white, cement floors, and empty.
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "That being?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Hold your breath."
* Mary_jane`^ flushes the room
<AlcarGM> flushes? :p
<Mary_jane`^> oh yes
<Mary_jane`^> water and all
<Mary_jane`^> anything in the room smaller than a person is going out the door =p
<AlcarGM> lol. Okay. The room is now soaking wet :p
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "What was THAT for?" crossly.
<Mary_jane`^> "The more I thought about it... the more I realized that the room was conveniently clean."
<AlcarGM> Blaise nods, as if that makes perfect sense.

<Mary_jane`^> "Ok, so this initiation, you keep saying that I lose things that I no longer have."
<AlcarGM> Blaise smiles slightly. "Other things as well, but they will not bother us. And you have more to lose than you might suspect. HUmanity is a luxury many magicians cannot afford, as our friends. Relatives. Love."
* Mary_jane`^ stands
<Mary_jane`^> "I can't do it, then."

<AlcarGM> You appear beside the front doors of a massive mall.
<AlcarGM> You are standing. The sky is slate-grey and covered in clouds and the doors are the common glass ones of every mall. The parking lot is full of minivans and SUVs.
<Mary_jane`^> Rain?
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at the minivans and SUVs and goes inside
<AlcarGM> No rain. Just clouds.
* Mary_jane`^ checks for a 'you are here' sign
<AlcarGM> You enter the mall. Nice, cool recycled air. And a big map of the mall. Filling a entire wall, all in front of you. It's floors, and rooms, and everything else, escapators, stairs. And in the bottom left hand corner says YOU ARE HERE. It just does not say where here IS on the map.
<Mary_jane`^> lol no arrow?
<AlcarGM> Nope.
<Mary_jane`^> How ironic
<AlcarGM> (( *smiles* ))

<AlcarGM> The old lady continues to knit. "Hmm. What's your name, my dear?" she asks politely.
<AlcarGM> You realize, belatedly, that you can't feel your power in you at all.
<AlcarGM> Something, perhaps the echo of it, makes you hesitate about giving your real name.
<Mary_jane`^> "Mary..."
<Mary_jane`^> well a little late for that now, isn't it?
<AlcarGM> The old lady knits. "We get a lot of Mary's here. After the slut, of course."
<Mary_jane`^> "I see... and... Where is here?"
<AlcarGM> Old lady: "Why, Hell of course. Where else would it be? Are you sure you went through processing?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Ah, he--What?"
<AlcarGM> The old lady smiles and shakes her head. Her teeth are awfully sharp, it seems. "Bureaucracies. Go through the door," she points, and there is now a door in the middle of the you are here map, "and your claim will be processed for what hell you're best suited for."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm not here for processing, I'm here to... consult me demons it seems... Litterally..." The last part being said under her breath.
<AlcarGM> The old lady stops smiling and knitting, her eyes black and empty as the (or a) Pit. "Internal investigations,is it?!"
* Mary_jane`^ crosses her arms "Perhaps, I need some information, though."
<AlcarGM> The old lady stands, scowling. "I did nothing wrong with the Potter boy. It's not my fault I thought he was from those books that Rowling woman sold the souls of her unborn children in order to make popular."
<AlcarGM> She waves towards the door, quivering with irrighteouss indignition, since righteous indignition doesn't work for demons. "Go find another stoolie!"

<Mary_jane`^> "I'm not here for YOU... I need information on someone else... I'm sure I could put a good word in for you, so when the potter case comes up..."
<AlcarGM> She looks . .wary, now. "On who?"
<Mary_jane`^> "A woman, she was processed a few centuries ago... She dared love the wrong person... I believe her name was... Ella?"
<AlcarGM> (( elaine ,you mean? ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Whatever ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Maybe it was Elaine... Let me check my notes--You know what, it was."
<AlcarGM> The demon frowns. "Hrm. There are many of those. You best go in and as a disinformation officer."
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at her "I have unlived one pourpose in my time here, and I'm straight forward about my position with II, I'm not familiar with the way the DO works."
<AlcarGM> The demon smiles. "it doesn't."

* AlcarGM has to end soon. Tired :p
<Mary_jane`^> k
<Mary_jane`^> wait
<Mary_jane`^> YOU are tired?
* AlcarGM has not slept in going on 3 days. So yes :p

<alcar> Hrm, No one else here?
<Aerdan> Boo.
* alcar meant for game :p
<Aerdan> Heh.
<Fennec> heh indeed
<Fennec> Aerdan: I mean, I *could* try and stuff you in, but I have no clue who you are :)
<Aerdan> :P
* Aerdan 's not involved, though.
<alcar> aww.Make up a pc :p
<alcar> and say you were always in the game.
<alcar> then get indignant when no one recalls you and say if they'll be that way you won't play
<Aerdan> :P
<alcar> for added marks badmouth them in other channels :)

<Adam`^> "No reason... Anyway, her name was Scrumptious. Her father owns the candy factory."
<Melissa> "Let me guess. Her father is willy wonka?"
<Adam`^> "No, her father is a Scrumptious too. The scrumptious factory you can see from the train station?"
* Melissa is relieved by that :p "Soi what's her role in all of this insanity?"
* Adam`^ shrugs
<Adam`^> "She's marrying some young inventor who's name escapes me right now."
<Fennec|GM> dude, I identified it as a Previously Postulated Primary Plot Point, and it 'escapes you just now'? or are you fooling with her? :)
<Melissa> lol
<Adam`^> you're not supposed to tell the player that... jeeze...
<Adam`^> alcar, pretend you didn't hear that

<Melissa> "And how did she know Ken?'
<Adam`^> "She didn't, she just knew he was dead."
<Melissa> "... and how did she know that?"
<Adam`^> "I don't know."
<Adam`^> "She was mysterious, but she was a woman."
* Melissa lets that one slide.
<Adam`^> (( You shouldn't ))

<Fennec|GM> She's wearing a rather hoopish dress.
<Adam`^> who isn't?
* Melissa whispers "purple aura," quietly, to Adam.
* Adam`^ walks over to her and squats infront of her "Can I help you?"
* Melissa waits behind Adam, ready to .. uhm ... she had no idea what, yet :p
<Fennec|GM> (( hold up ))
<Adam`^> (( I will do nothing of the sort! ))
<Fennec|GM> (( dangit ))
<Adam`^> (( You better dangit ))

* Melissa sighs. Mel is like playing russian roulette with a laser gun, I swear.
* Melissa debates inventing telepathic spam.
<Fennec|GM> "EAT AT JOE'S!"

<AlcarGM> You're in a cold castle room in Hell with a woman who has made her stomach and most of the muscles in her legs into a tapestry and then destroyed it. She snhouldn't be standing, probably, but she is,.
* Mary_jane`^ helps her
<Mary_jane`^> "You could probably save him, though."
<Fennec> (( dudewtf and good night! ))

<AlcarGM> You walk through the courtyard. People are whispering to themselves in broken voices, sounding like leaves on the wind. "I didnlt meant to..." "I'm sorry.. " "Love ... " "I didn't mean to take the last Rolo..."

<Mary_jane`^> "This could be the last chance you have to forgive the man you loved. It's eternal, you know?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: ".... Oh, fuck. He's too close to you...." And the darkness is gone, abruptly. Replaced by ... something. Something terribly bright, brither than an angel, or a sun. You hear nothing scream, and another scream, far more human, but carrying a rage and power you can barely compass..... The nothing is back, but it no longer watches you.
<AlcarGM> Elaine: "Eternal? Per.... haps..." she trails off. "What .. was that?"
<Mary_jane`^> "No idea... Let's hurry."
* Mary_jane`^ quickens her pace to a run
<AlcarGM> You run. Time passes, or doesn't, since this is Hell. After a time, you see something ahead of you, at the end of the road. A door made of wood.
<Mary_jane`^> "It is... There's no doubt in my mind. It's survived five worlds so far and is still as strong as ever."
* Mary_jane`^ goe to the door
<AlcarGM> It fills the entire road, which is now scarcely 5 feet wide. and is dark, like rusted iron. There is aface graven into it. A happy face.
<AlcarGM> Elaine: "What has .... the abyss?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Love."

<Mary_jane`^> how do you destroy a magical door...
<AlcarGM> turn it into the polka dot door and watch it die of embarassment? :p

<AlcarGM> damn. Blaise is going tom be MORE nuts.
* AlcarGM sighs.
<Mary_jane`^> lol why?
<AlcarGM> he saw what was in Galahad, with his Sight. Gabe should have thought to warm him to leave the room :p
<Mary_jane`^> you do realize you do have SOME control over this world, right?
<AlcarGM> yes :P

<AlcarGM> Galahad frowns. "She is a woman, yes? Why doesn't she jjust have children, and have them as fates with her?"
<Mary_jane`^> "She's affraid no one will come for her."
<Mary_jane`^> "She is rather old... A maiden she called herself, to the end."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "That is all?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Well... Yes, it seems."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "Then I will marry her. It is not seemly for a woman to be a maiden all her life."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: ".... uhm..... "
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at him
* Mary_jane`^ opens her mouth to say something, then shuts it
<AlcarGM> he seems 110% sinceere. And he spent 1500 years in hell. He must have driven people insane when he was alive :p

<Mary_jane`^> "She's affraid no one will come for her."
<Mary_jane`^> "She is rather old... A maiden she called herself, to the end."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "That is all?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Well... Yes, it seems."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "Then I will marry her. It is not seemly for a woman to be a maiden all her life."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: ".... uhm..... "
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at him
* Mary_jane`^ opens her mouth to say something, then shuts it
<AlcarGM> he seems 110% sinceere. And he spent 1500 years in hell. He must have driven people insane when he was alive :p
<Mary_jane`^> "But you don't know her... You can't marry a woman you don't know it's... well I mean you have to love people to marry them."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "Love comes in all marriages that last, even arranged ones. Or at least friendship, which lasts longer."
<Mary_jane`^> "That's likely but... A fate? How do you... Nevermind, how would we even get you there?"
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "You could not to the hall of the fates wjen you can go to Hell?" in an amused tone.

<Mary_jane`^> I like galahad =p
<AlcarGM> yeah :)
<Mary_jane`^> a true knight to the end
<Mary_jane`^> and even for 1500 years beyond the end =p
<Mary_jane`^> he's prolly the reason his dad's crazy though
<AlcarGM> lol. Quite likely :P

<Mary_jane`^> "Would you like to meet him? I could bring him, you know. He would like a shave and haircut first, but later."
<AlcarGM> The fate blinks. "My hair....... I haven't done my hair since 1392!" in a horrified tone, almost that of the young fate she once was.
* Mary_jane`^ smiles
<Mary_jane`^> "You have time... Is a day from earth enough time for you?"
<AlcarGM> She nods, and is no longer in the hall
* Mary_jane`^ is no longer in the hall as well, then. Opting for a stall in the women's bathroom at her school
<AlcarGM> you appear in a bathroom in the womans washroom. the nuclear explosion that results whe you occupy the place that Franie Jenkins did levels the city. Or, we end the session :p

* alcar just realized that the fin de siecle game needs mechas.
<alcar> I iwsh I'd thought of that earlier. I would have turned angels into transformers :p
<alcar> "I am an autbo - er, angel."
<Alicia> Wow
<Alicia> "I am the archangel Optimus Prime"
* alcar nods :P

<AlcarGM> Okay! Since the world didn't blow up, you are in the bathroom at school, having teleported from the hall of the fates .... to get to class on time. I don't know about you, but the GM is disturbed by that.
<Mary_jane`^> not as disturbing as having gone to hell the night before
* Mary_jane`^ finds a seat and waits for school to start!
<AlcarGM> True. Your grades are starting to slip though :p

<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, you are crazy."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I wish I was. It wouldbe nice. I could have a vacation in a nice padded room and bounce off the walls!" happily.
<Mary_jane`^> "You are, Luna. You are crazier than most crazy people I know..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I am not crazy. I am Special. Daddy said so."
<Mary_jane`^> "This is the same Daddy who fucked you once."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "But I don't remember that," placidly.

<Mary_jane`^> "Erm... You know what, i really must be going."
<AlcarGM> The man shakes his head. "Of course not. You have to dance," and his grip is tighter than it should be. The music is louder, insistent. Hungry.....
* Mary_jane`^ glares at him "No, I don't."
<AlcarGM> He doesn't let go. You *know* you should be throwing him, or something, but a large part of you doesn't want to. He's so nice., and charming, and he really liked you for who you really are.
<AlcarGM> (( he is also about as subtle as a full page personal ad. ))

<Alcar> Hrm. Will see how long chaos wants to rp the whole being on the run stuff.
* Alcar doesn't think it quite fits anime for the MC to be running from the law for murder :p
<Tass> oh
<Tass> I didn't realise the game was modeled after anime :P
<Alcar> lol. Yup. Was initially, at least. I think it's veered in a few instances, but that was the goal.
<Alcar> hence the whole Girl Who Saves The World and friends stuff.
<Tass> lol
<Tass> it makes so much sense now :P
<Tass> well, more sense

<AlcarGM> Blaise: "And what is the point of that, besides to mock those of us who have not had sex in .... 270 years, 3 months and 14 days?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Ok, our next order of business, many of you may have noticed the insane moon child sitting next to me."
<Mary_jane`^> "You've counted?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I'd have sex with you," to Blaise.
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "I was joking. Ah ... " he stares at Luna... "No."
<AlcarGM> Luna pouts. "You're just saying that bcause I'd melt your mind and it would bubble out your ears."

<Mary_jane`^> "Like I had mentionted earlier, he intended to be resurected. Is anyone even listening to me?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "How do you know that?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Know what?"
<AlcarGM> (( Luna: "My name is Luna Parsons. You killed my father. Prepare to die." ..So . .sooo tempting :P\ ))
<AlcarGM> Luna: "That he wanted to come back. He never told me that. Unless he did."

<Mary_jane`^> "I kind of like this place... We need to change our clothes though. Either of you know any clothing spells?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I can make fire. I don't want to know any more demonic spells.."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Of course! Clothing is fun!"
<AlcarGM> You are now ...... Malibu Barbie.
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna?"
<AlcarGM> Congrats :p
<Mary_jane`^> "Ok... Something that fits into this setting."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh!" She pouts. "But the barbie cultists are a big religion here. We could melt plastic."
<Mary_jane`^> "No, please. Just... Something subtle."

<Mary_jane`^> "Ok, let's visit the hanging gardens."
<AlcarGM> Luna claps her hands. "Oh goody! I like seeing Ctuhlhu hang people!"

<Mary_jane`^> "Do you think we'll need money?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I never need money. I have sex with people for free."
* Mary_jane`^ continues to walk
<Mary_jane`^> "But if we could get money for it..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Sometimes people pay me ot stop."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "...."
<Mary_jane`^> "Let's see how far we can get without money first."

<AlcarGM> The hanging garden of Babylon, due to budget cutbacks, are currently a greenhouse. Okay. Maybe not :) THe hanging gardens are large. And hanging. And very pretty., except for the fact that there are acutal corpses hanging from them, murders ,thieves, husbands who left toilets seats up and the like.
<Mary_jane`^> "Who's Idea was this again?"
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the bodies
<Mary_jane`^> "Who did you say hanged these people here?" To luna
<AlcarGM> They're hanging a good 23 stories about the ground. Men. Women. A few children.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Cthulhu. But he's not here right now, or the garden would be moving and singing. I like to listen to the songs."

<Mary_jane`^> "How often do you come here Luna?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Lots! It's nice and pretty and it used to be on the moon. But they moved it."
<Mary_jane`^> "Why?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "The martians couldn't come."
<AlcarGM> Nora just shakes her head
<Mary_jane`^> "No... She has a point."
<AlcarGM> The Dancing Goat turns out to bee a large single storey tavern made from the hull of the Ark, or so local legends run. It is made of wood, and rather old.
* Mary_jane`^ goes inside looking around "So do the martians come now?"
<AlcarGM> Luna nods. "Sometimes. But they're at home now because Elvis is touring."

* Mary_jane`^ asks what the local currancy is here =p
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh, they accept anything. Except for severed heads."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "It takes the bartender time to grow a new head when the barbarians cut his head off for payment."

<Mary_jane`^> "I just thought we'd come by and say hi to the fisher king before we left. I think we're going to alexandria next to visit the libraries. Do you know what currancy they have there?"
<AlcarGM> He shake shis head. "Alexandria is gone. They burned it long ago, from all the worlds, for containing books never meant to be written. It's said the shadows came to life thetrre, and things were given life that should never have lived."
<Mary_jane`^> "They also said babylon was a city of ruins."
<AlcarGM> The fisher king laughs. "In some worlds, yes. This -" he waves a hand - "isn't real. Not like it really was. The moon remebered it, and the moon brought us all back. Even me, to live out our lives forever in a world that's no longer our world. There was another, but it became a space station I was told. Pollution from the real world."
<AlcarGM> (( nearly went with that idea, too :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Babylon 5? ))
<AlcarGM> (( yup. Was going to send you there :p ))
<AlcarGM> (( or 4, and have you blamed for destroying it. ))

* Mary_jane`^ sniffs "I need a drink."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "We had drinks."
<AlcarGM> She looks worried.
<Mary_jane`^> "I didn't, I had to watch mine for Loki. He's a god you know."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "... I know. Are you sure Luna isn't contagious?"
* Mary_jane`^ lets go of luna and sits down in the middle of the street

<Alicia> I suppose usually, railroading is only used for when it's too much, though, so good GMs don't railroad. ^^;
<Alicia> Because if they're good GMs, it's not railroading. ^^;;
<alcar> lol. Yeah.
<Fennec> give player incentives to do what needs to be done, rather than closing off all other options? :)
<Alicia> Yes
<Alicia> It's not railroading if the players WANT to follow your path
<alcar> carrot and really big stick of experience points.
<Fennec> mmm, XP
<alcar> "What?! We killed that dragon and got no experience?!" "It wasn't in the plot."

<Adam`^> "Your wings are gone."
* Melissa looks, to make sure they actually are gone. "Oh. I hope I didn't give them to someone by mistake. Unless he was Holmes.
<Melissa> (( it would be fitting :p ))

* Kendrick puts an arm around Daphne. :P "Apparently, someone here looks much like her."
<FennecGM> She stiffens her upper lip. "You're joking."
<Kendrick> "No. No I am not."
<Kendrick> "Unfortunatly, I don't speak Greek.. so showing her around is rather difficult."
<FennecGM> <blink> "Then why the blazes did you come here with her in the first place?!?"
<Kendrick> "I wanted her to learn English! I thought inviting her here for awhile was the easiest way."
<Kendrick> "I didn't expect to find such a circus when I tried to find lodgings, however."
* Kendrick frowns. :|
<Fennec|GM> "How delightfully... stupid." She steadies herself.
* Kendrick blinks, "I .. thought it was a great idea! Do you know how much Universities charge for this sort of thing nowadays?!"
<Adam`^> (( Too much ))

<Mary_jane`^> "You think we can go to school with the FBI looking for us? The police have an APB out for us, the FBI wants us dead..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I could talk to them and make it better! I am good at talking to people. I say words."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Then what do we do? I'm not putting my life on hold because Luna is crazy!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm open to suggestions..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "We could breathe!"
<Mary_jane`^> "We do that anyway."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "We could turn her in. It's not like the FBI could keep her somewhere ... could that?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "You just think you do. If you really breathed, you wouldn't need to eat."

<AlcarGM> Mimir: "Ah, did it? Heh. I didn't break him, but at least I hurt him. You, though. You I can break, while you are here. In my place. Oh, this is going to be such fun. And I will take my sword bad, and Merlin will reward me, and you will not be dead."
* Mary_jane`^ seems disinterested "Or we could just leave."
<AlcarGM> Mimir: "Oh, you can't. You have power, but no knowledge of how to really is. Pity, really. You could have becoming something. Instead, you will merely die here. Alone. Removed from all who care about you." Nora and Luna vanish. "And ..what else. Oh, nothing else."
<AlcarGM> She walks towards you, humming to herself.
<Mary_jane`^> "I thought I wasn't going to die?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You remember that conversation? God you're terrible. It's a wonder you've lived this long."

<Mary_jane`^> I could try the dwarven spell I heard loki utter, but I doubt it would work
<Mary_jane`^> Which is why I haven't tried it yet
<Mary_jane`^> although the hagride couldn't resist it...
<AlcarGM> Yeah, but you're inside a dimension Mimir created. She is, literally, God here :p
<Mary_jane`^> Then I have to kill god
<Mary_jane`^> I can do that
<Mary_jane`^> God fears MJ in the real world
<Mary_jane`^> he has a reason to... She just doesn't know what that reason is

<Mary_jane`^> There we go, I'll just release my Anima
<Mary_jane`^> I'll let it dispatch Mimir while I fight Phil
<Mary_jane`^> I think it's anima, isn't that wht it's called? I don't remember
* AlcarGM nods. Yup.
<Mary_jane`^> good, according to blaise it is the power behind my magic
<Mary_jane`^> unless I deny it and create my own power, like merlin has
<Mary_jane`^> however that means I would have to become very insane and evil
<Mary_jane`^> so I'll accept it and let it work its magic
<AlcarGM> lol
<Mary_jane`^> hopefully it's not the one that sent me to hell
<Mary_jane`^> lol

<AlcarGM> Your father attacks you from behind.
<AlcarGM> Phil attacks from the front.
<AlcarGM> Mimir: "Hell is nothing to the living."
* Mary_jane`^ doesn't move
<Mary_jane`^> "WHo said I was alive?"
<AlcarGM> Your father stabs you .... in the rectum . .with something that is definitely NOT a sword and really, really hurts.
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<Mary_jane`^> I'm not even going to ask
<Mary_jane`^> Infact...
<AlcarGM> (( Mimir is.... sick :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> nevermind

<Mary_jane`^> MJ is only partly insane
<AlcarGM> oh? :p
<Mary_jane`^> Yes, only partly
<Mary_jane`^> SHe is in alot of pain, and it is really hard to not get angry

* Mary_jane`^ goes into Nora's spirit, the place she saw the demon with the eyes on his hands
<AlcarGM> YOu enter .. and there is nothing to stand on. astorm, and fragments. SHatters pieces of mind and soul whirling around madly. Even that strange center is gone, broken with the rest.
<Mary_jane`^> We can rebuild her... make her stronger, more powerful than before...
<Mary_jane`^> or something like that
<AlcarGM> Screams and voices and laughter are buffeting you . .and the storm, rumbling. It's, somehow, holding her from breaking apart, though nothing else.
* Mary_jane`^ grabs a piece and holds onto it
<AlcarGM> You are eight years old, eating an ice cream cone .... now being eaten by it, and unable to remember the old memory....
<Mary_jane`^> "No, this isn't how it happened..."

<AlcarGM> The darkness and fire are blocking you, with magic. BUt there is a moon in her spirit, glowing behind it.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "m ... j?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Nora... Please be ok..."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Ooh! The demon wants to play!" She claps her hands.
* Mary_jane`^ just holds onto Nora
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I .... feel .... oh, my god...." she sits up, fast, her eyes wide. "I .. did .... saw..... God...."
* Mary_jane`^ hits her head with noras and falls backward
* Mary_jane`^ rubs her head
<AlcarGM> Nora is crying again, staring into ... some memory. "I ... she made me..... Jesus..."
* Mary_jane`^ tackles Nora "Nora, are you ok?" HOlding onto her
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Silly demons," absently, "and gods. Gods are silly too. They think they are you. But we are only ourselves. For better or worser, or .... something....." She frowns. "There. They'll behave, or I will spank them. With lollipops."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I ... don't ... " she attempts to get free. "Don't .. touch me!" she screams. "just ... don't...." in a more calm tone. "I .. .ate your soul. I rememeber.... making you beg...."
* Mary_jane`^ tackles Luna "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "You want to be spaked with lollipops too?! YAY!"

<Mary_jane`^> "It's ok Nora. My soul is still here."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "It wasn't there. I ate it, and it was so .. .big .. and pure. Almost bigger than Jake's......" She shudders. "It - it happened. It's not real .. but it happened. I .... I'm sorry...."
<Mary_jane`^> "It's ok, she can't imitate my soul because she doesn't know me yet."
<AlcarGM> Nora looks up at you, scared. "It was yours," she says flatly. "I can . .smell it.... want it ....."
* Mary_jane`^ huggs her by suprise anyway "It's ok, I forgive you. Even though it wasn't real, it was real enough to you. Just don't let it happen again and I won't have to kill you."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "But you did."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Ooh! Does this mean she can be the insane one now?"

<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh." She plops down on the ground. "What if I pretend to be sane?"
<AlcarGM> Nora attempts to stand, not returning your hug.
<Mary_jane`^> "I supose that would work... but only until you really are sane."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "But everyone is faking sanity. You can't live in an insane world and be sane unless you fake it."
<Mary_jane`^> "But you're more insane than everyone else."
<Mary_jane`^> "Let's see your best try."
* Mary_jane`^ hasn't let go of Nora =p
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Okay."
<AlcarGM> Luna: ".. how was it?"

* Mary_jane`^ frowns at her "I don't want my best friend to become mad with power just to kill Mimir."
<AlcarGM> Nora says nothing in reply.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Being sane is restful."
<Mary_jane`^> "Besides, it's what she wants. She wants to die."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Then I'll eat the ugly worm of her soul and oblige her nice and slowly. Very slowly."
<Mary_jane`^> "you're hurting nora. I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that and then in a few days we'll see how you feel."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Since when did you become a sanctimonious wimp?"
* Mary_jane`^ raises an eyebrow at Nora
<AlcarGM> Nora: "'Just move on?' she mimicks, almost savagely. "What the fuck are you on?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "She's on sanity."
* Mary_jane`^ just watches Nora, let her vent
<AlcarGM> Nora just .. .glares at you.
<Mary_jane`^> "Is there anything else you need to say Nora?"
<aslhk> (draw her a diagram!)
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Not to you, Mimir."

<AlcarGM> Luna: "I would see. But I'm sane." She skips over,singing: "Luna is sane, like a great dane."
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, sane people don't sing like that. You're supposed to be pretending."
* Mary_jane`^ puts her hands behind her back and watches Nora
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh! I forgot."

* Mary_jane`^ holds out her hand, calling the staff
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Let's see you take this....."
<AlcarGM> The staff apears, white and bright, and the hell fire strikes it.. and goes out.
* Mary_jane`^ prays to whatever god is listening that that man does not show up
<AlcarGM> Nora blinks. "So I'll just learn more," calmly. "Because, witch, I know my friend. And there is no fucking way she'd just dismiss something like being god-damned raped until you eat people's souls with 'get over it'!"
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm sorry I don't live up to your expectations. But I also made a promise to you, and I don't want to see the power overwhelm you and consume you."

<AlcarGM> She says a harsh, cold Word and the air around you turns to acid.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "MJ wouldn't ... but you don't care. And someone has to stop you;."
<Mary_jane`^> "Nora, please stop."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Not until you free my friends."
<AlcarGM> Erm. The air is acid. Acid hurts. Just an fyi :)
<Mary_jane`^> right...

<Em[sleeping]> and then emma woke up
* Em[sleeping] is now known as Emika
<Emika> but no one was here D:
<Emika> so she went off to make some waffles
<alcar> We are here! But discussing Mimir in another network.
<aslhk> mimir is very important!
<Emika> not as important as waffles
<alcar> she could do terrible things with waffles!
<aslhk> I am sure!
<Emika> like....
<Emika> EAT THEM
<alcar> "You just think you've been making waffles. That's really your soul you've been pressing until it screams."
<Emika> my soul is yummy
<Emika> please pass the ketchup
<alcar> .. you're luna, right?
<Emika> no i am emma
<Emika> Princess Emma
<Emika> you may bow if you wish
<Tonitrus> She's loony.

<Chaos`^> I am genious there are no flaws

<Fennec> The domain of the snark is an island filled with chasms and crags, many months sail from England. On the same island may also be found other creatures such as the Jubjub and Bandersnatch. It is the same island where the Jabberwock was slain. The snark is a peculiar creature that cannot be captured in a commonplace way. Above all, courage is required during a snark hunt. The most common method is to seek it with thimbles, care, forks and hope.
<Chaos`^> sounds like a bacholor
<Fennec> anyway.
<Chaos`^> I am going to put snarks in my game, and make them single men... and I'm going to force all the pc's to be female and unmarried!
<Fennec> ...
<Fennec> <clears throat> I'll play the Pretty Princess! ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ _^_ ^_^

<Mary_jane`^> "I didn't want to kill her, but I couldn't help her either. Thankfully Mjolnir stepped in."
<Aerdan> . o O (Mjollnir.)
<Mary_jane`^> (( Don't argue the spelling of ancent germanic, you won't get far ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Ancient ))

<Mary_jane`^> "I really need to get to the vatican... I don't have much time as it is, I'm due at Clotho's at 9 this morning."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "I don't want to ask."
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the clock "i'll come back later and answer all your questions."
<Mary_jane`^> "Bye."
<AlcarGM> He looks at Nora. "Is she all right?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Uhm... No. But Luna will have to explain it... She's here right? Anyway tell her she's supposed to be pretending to be sane and she should be fine. Gabe can probably tell you if she'll be ok... Also if she says she ate your soul just nod your head and tell her it wasn't really the you that's you from here and now or something."
* Mary_jane`^ leaves before he gets time to absorb all of that

<AlcarGM> For simplicities sake, you appear outside the Vatican proper. Jacob is there, studying the building thoughtfully.
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "They have wards up against angels, fallen or not. And most everything else under the sun. Including a few aimed specifically at you."
<Mary_jane`^> "That's interesting..."
* Mary_jane`^ walks toward the building
<AlcarGM> Jacob: ".... perhaps it would be best NOT to walk into them?"

<Mary_jane`^> I realize that if this game were to become a book, it wuld be at the top of the ban list
<AlcarGM> lol
<AlcarGM> oh? :p
<Mary_jane`^> they hate harry potter because it has 'magic' it doesn't even TOUCH on religion =p
<Mary_jane`^> we would have to remove the christian element and stick with the dead religions like norse and greek
<Mary_jane`^> but, it doesn't matter
<Mary_jane`^> i'm just thinking about how much people would hate this story =p

<Mary_jane`^> "I think they may have already... Noticed."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Hmm. Perhaps."
<AlcarGM> A quiet voice behind you says "Very astute." Male. English. Not friendly. The temperature in the local area drops. "You would be wise you explain your reasons, before I kill you."
* Mary_jane`^ hmms and looks behind her
<Mary_jane`^> "I was hoping to visit the library"
<AlcarGM> There is a priest behind you. at least, you think he's a priest. He's about 6'5", in a frock, painfully thin, and corspse white. He's also wearing sunglasses. At 5 am.
<Mary_jane`^> it's 5 am in italy?
<AlcarGM> err... good point :p
<AlcarGM> Uhm, Prollly .. .noon .... or 2 pm. Or something.
<Mary_jane`^> it doesn't matter, a priest in sunglasses is just ODD

* alcar just turned the 9 muses into a rat king for the vatican. Life is good :p

<AlcarGM> Galahad hesitates. "I know of you, and the world is - no longer the world I knew. I do not belong in it. I have seen what man was not meant to see, and been to Hell, and I am alive when I should have died long ago. There is no place for me in it, save as a relic."
* Mary_jane`^ doesn't mention phil, galahad is probably safer here
<AlcarGM> The fate is silent for a long moment. "I believe you misjudge yourself, and perhaps them."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "I am sure I judge them wrong. I do not know them, and I can find no way to do so. I try, but there is distance even the fisher king cannot bridge. I have seen things, and done things, and I am too old, and would put them and thier world in danger if I remain. I, too, am as selfish as any other."
* Mary_jane`^ looks for a chair
<AlcarGM> A chair appears beside you.
* Mary_jane`^ sits
<AlcarGM> Clotho: "I ... see. Your honesty does you credit. But I am old, and withered, and older by far than you, o mortal man."
<AlcarGM> Galahad: "Then I will be sure that I do not see you charged for molesting a minor." j/k
<AlcarGM> (( soo not in character :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( That's funny =p ))

<Mary_jane`^> "Imagine, if you will, that we are not in a forest."
<AlcarGM> Wolf: "But we are always in a forest, wherever we go. We are never alone, but we are always alone because we see the wood, and not the trees. And we think that things are real. We wander on a darkling plain, beset by ignorance and confusion and a lack of cheap store bought sex."
<Mary_jane`^> "Be quiet and let me finish."
<Mary_jane`^> "We aren't in a forest because we're already at our destination. Our destination is here, and here is our destination."
<AlcarGM> Wolf: "Very zen."
<Mary_jane`^> "Indeed."
<Mary_jane`^> "I could be a monk or something."
<AlcarGM> The wolf-horse does nothing. The trees are slowly surrounding you. They've developed tentacles, with mouths.
<Mary_jane`^> "Our destination is attackign us. What shall we do?"
<AlcarGM> Wolf-horse: "That is the human condion. We al want to be mystics in our caves, except then we can't get laid frequently. I believe ... oh, yes. I believe we die..."
<AlcarGM> end of session :)

<Chaos`^> my computer is kind of fucked
* Chaos`^ is now known as Mary_jane`^
<Mary_jane`^> doesn't mean I can't play
* alcar is now known as AlcarGM
<AlcarGM> Heh. K.
<AlcarGM> Let's see. Currently, you are on a wolf-horse being attacked by trees with branches with lots of thorns and teeth having surrounded you both and are endevouring to rip you into small, bite sized pieces.
<AlcarGM> Thw wolf-horse is just... calm, as the branches begin to tear into him and shred him. The trees lash out at you as well, cutting dep gounses in flesh that bleed and do not heal.
<Mary_jane`^> erm
<AlcarGM> yes? :)
<Mary_jane`^> "AAAK! That hurts!"

<AlcarGM> You can smell something .. odd ... in the air. It's odorless, and tasteless, but there is something .. off.
<Mary_jane`^> I smell it
<Mary_jane`^> yet it's odorless?
<AlcarGM> Yup :)
<Mary_jane`^> that makes no sense
* AlcarGM nods. I know.

<AlcarGM> There is no one in the room, except for you and your shadow. Which is currently making faces at you.
* Mary_jane`^ looks at her shadow "STOP IT! I am so not in the mood."
<AlcarGM> Your shadow blinks, then says "Whyever not?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Because I just died in a fire. That will piss anyone off."
<AlcarGM> Shadow: "But you caused the fire. We are all the architects of our own destiny, after all. You chose to die, but you aren't dead. No one dies in dreams, for all they might wish it were otherwise."
<Mary_jane`^> "Fine, so I started the fire. But that doesn't mean the trees still didn't kill me."
<AlcarGM> Shadow: "Oh, of course. But you have to die in order to live. Rebirth is more than just a word, awakening more than just not sleeping."
<Mary_jane`^> "Whatever. Why am I here though?"
<AlcarGM> Shadow: "Why are any of us anywhere?"
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm asking you."
<Mary_jane`^> "Don't answer my questions with questions."
<AlcarGM> Shadow: "To ask a question implies there is an answer, and yet to your question there seems to be no answer. Why is there something, and not nothing? What is the purple of life? Why am I here? But is a question without an answer a question at all? Or is it that we are afraid of what the answer might be?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You know what. Just be quiet."

<AlcarGM> Your shadow stirs. "You know, interactions with the shadow in dreams may shed light on one's state of mind. A disagreement with the shadow may indicate that one is coping with conflicting desires or intentions. "
<AlcarGM> Shadow: "You see, magic is not the answer but the question. It is the use that provides the answer. Power has no morals in and of itself. Power does not corrupt people. It's quite often the other way around, really."
<Mary_jane`^> "I am having a conflicting desire... I'm not sure whether to point a light on you, or to just sell you to the nearest vendor."

* alcar is having fun with the magical initiation. MJs shadow just explained the shadow as it exists in Jungian psychology.

<Mary_jane`^> I haven't named him, and he's already whipped
<Mary_jane`^> or she, I suppose
<Mary_jane`^> we never discussed the shadow's sex
<Mary_jane`^> Well it has breasts
<Mary_jane`^> but does it have a female voice?
<AlcarGM> Nope, gender neutral.
<Mary_jane`^> I always figured shadows as males, but they do have a thing with commitment... once your shadow always your shadow

<Mary_jane`^> "Great... Hey, I have a question for you... There's this word I saw, I was wondering if you could tell me what it was."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "What word?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Erm... I'd have to write it out... Do you have a pen?"
<AlcarGM> He reaches into a pocket and comes out with a pen, and some paper. (A receipt, but it works.)
* Mary_jane`^ writes
<AlcarGM> I assume it's what the trees were trying to write? :p
<Mary_jane`^> yes
<Mary_jane`^> The one the monkey saw
<AlcarGM> (( Aww. Not "Here is my phone number. Call me, handsome."? :p ))
<Mary_jane`^> no

* Mary_jane`^ walks to the door
<AlcarGM> The door is just a door. Really. There is no Snark on the other side.
* Mary_jane`^ was planning on going through the door... and upstairs if it pleases the master of the universe
<AlcarGM> Via opening it, I hope :P
* AlcarGM is now known as He-Man
<Mary_jane`^> no
* He-Man is the Master of the Universe!
* He-Man is now known as AlcarGM
<Mary_jane`^> I was hoping to walk through it
<AlcarGM> The door is annoying solid :p

<AlcarGM> You go upstairs. It's quiet, but you smell somehting burning in the kitchen.
* Mary_jane`^ goes to the kitchen slowly
<AlcarGM> Smoke is coming off of a pan on the stove. Soup, on low, that's burned to the bottom of the pot. Not yet enough to set off the smoke alarm, though. Besides it is Jeeves, unconscious on the floor. Sleeping it seems.
* Mary_jane`^ looks down
<Mary_jane`^> "That's odd."
<AlcarGM> Blaise: "More than odd, I would imagine."
<Mary_jane`^> "Must be the cable company."
* Mary_jane`^ checks Jeeves
<AlcarGM> Blaise: ".... pardon?"

* Mary_jane`^ is looking at the hand
<AlcarGM> The hand is human, recently manicured, and there are bits of glove on the floor under it. Something apparently cut it off at the wrist. Teeth, most likely. unfortunatlely, the teeth ruined a large part of the hand, dso getting a print might he hard
* Mary_jane`^ washes the hand with a wave of her own
<Mary_jane`^> "What do you think caused these teeth marks?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe looks at the hand, the frowns. "Wait ...... oh. Apparently it's a defence, if a fisher king is sleeping and someone who isn't a friend tries to remove them from a place. A fisher king ancestor in... 11006 did it, a deal with some anthropopagi. Err. Small cannibalistic faerie. They're hte fae pirahanna. Can skeletonize a person in under two minutes."
<Mary_jane`^> "That's why you're not gone then..."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "I wonder how it decides what is friendly and what is not .... I'd hate to wake up and finds bits of some neighbour over me...."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm still going with the FBI theory. Let's check on jeeves, he has questions for you."
* Mary_jane`^ bags the hand like a professional CSI
<AlcarGM> The hand you washed off to conaminate the evidence you mean? :p
<Mary_jane`^> It's pure water, it's not contaminated, I just skipped the coroner step

* Mary_jane`^ whispers to luna "PSSST!"
<AlcarGM> Luna looks up and waves to you. "Hi! I'mbeing sane!" Happily. "And I have tea. But it is getting cold."
<Mary_jane`^> "C'mere!"
* Mary_jane`^ waves her over
<AlcarGM> Luna gets up.
<AlcarGM> Police officers level guns.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh! They said they wanted to talk to me. But my tea wasn't done." She waves to the police. "Hi! Are you sane, too?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna hurry up!"
<Mary_jane`^> "Sane people don't wave at people pointing guns at them. And they don't just sit there whent here's such a commotion. Hurry."
<AlcarGM> Luna turns. But my tea is -" and her head vanishes in an explosion of flesh, and silver light. The light swirls up to the ceiling, then back down and reforms into her head. Luna blinks, cross eyed. "They just shot me! That is not sane."
<Mary_jane`^> "You're the one being insane, Hurry up so we can leave!"

<Mary_jane`^> "It looked like you hurt them to me. You don't make people sane, it's just not somethign you do!"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "They couldn't even pretend. They shot me! They could have hurt me, too! And my tea was getting cold. Tea is sane."
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, that is not acting sane. You were good at pretending, what happened?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "They wanted me to come outside. I said I wanted to finish my tea first. I didn't turn them into tea bags, and that was a Sane Thing. AND! Then thye had everyone leave and started shouting at me, so I ignored them."
<Mary_jane`^> "You don't ignore people that are shouting at you when you're sane. Show me one sane person that does that."
<AlcarGM> :Luna considers that. "I don't know. I don't think I've met any sane person. Everyone is pretending. People outside asylums are just better pretenders. So there." She sticks her tongue out at you.

<AlcarGM> Luna sings: "Life is an open sore to me...."
<Mary_jane`^> "What? Uhg..."
* Mary_jane`^ begins walking to the nearest place that seems reasonable
<AlcarGM> You can feel the pull of her presence, like the moon in the sky but right beside you. Initated, you feel her power stronger than before, glowing through her, penetrating the world without even knowing or caring. It's like standing next to the nuclear pile that is continually going critical.
<AlcarGM> Luna: "It's a song on the radio!"

<Mary_jane`^> "Alright Luna, we're leaving. I have to find somebody."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Rainbows are visions, and also illusions, Rainbows have something to hide. Cuz when they gods piss they often miss and .... but it's nice here! It's quiet!
* AlcarGM makes a note to never let Luna sing again.
<Mary_jane`^> please

<AlcarGM> Luna: "BUt I did!" happily. It's now summer. Trees are blooming, Animals are seriously confused, and the ground feels .... strange ... underfoot, like you're walking on eggshells and not solid land.
* Mary_jane`^ looks down
<AlcarGM> Oh, it's solid enough. But she broke the entire spirit world this place is and remade it into summer. It's barely holding itself together from the strain.
<AlcarGM> Luna:
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna... You broke this world. Don't do that again. Ever."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "See? It's summer now!"
<Mary_jane`^> "We're leaving, grab onto me."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I can fix it....." she sighs, and does so. "You're no fun. It's not like Loki would mind."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm sure he would if... What did you say?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "When? I say a lof things. Some of them I don't even say."
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna, pretend to be sane. PLEASE."
<AlcarGM> Luna wails "But people shoot me if I do!"

<Mary_jane`^> "Where's Loki?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I am prtending to not be me." She pauses. "It's boring." then: "I could tell you,but I can't find him since I'm sane. Sane people don't believe in Loki."
<Mary_jane`^> "I do."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Oh! Right." And her power is there again, but muted. "He's coming here. I think he's mad. Did you call him names?"
<Mary_jane`^> "No, you took away the snow, remember?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I did?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I mustn't have been sane then."
<Mary_jane`^> "You're right, you weren't."
* Mary_jane`^ is starting to get slightly anoyed
<Mary_jane`^> "Although you said you wre!"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I probably got confused. I get confused a lot. I think it's because I was bottle fed and not breast fed since daddy turned mummy into a zombie and zombies can't breast feed."

<Fennec> give me some trivial background info, hmm? :)
<Chaos`^> generic fantasy

<AlcarGM> You're in the dream place. It's summer, and luna is sitting down beside you making a cats cradle in her hand. Using cat intestines. The rest of the cat is lying beside her, decidely dead.
<Mary_jane`^> "OH MY GOD LUNA! What did you do to that cat!?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I'm making a cradle. And then, I will see if the cat had kittens. And I will put them in the cradle."

<AlcarGM> Luna grabs you as you land, her hands encircling your neck.
<Mary_jane`^> that's ok.. I can't breath anyway!
<AlcarGM> She is choking you :p
<Mary_jane`^> am I on the moon?
<AlcarGM> Yes.
<Mary_jane`^> Good, then she's preventing the air from being sucked out of my lungs by the powerful vacuum, good job luna!
<AlcarGM> You can feel the power of the moon all around. you. Female. Ancient. Primal.
<AlcarGM> Not when she's trying to kill you :)
<AlcarGM> BTW, your throat is being crushed :)
<Mary_jane`^> I'm working on it! I'm only one woman!

<AlcarGM> You waken from a confused dream about a carnival and masks to whatever air freshener Jeeves uses. You're in a guest bed at Nora's, Naked, and don't stink so someone bathed you. Some fresh clothing, and a glass of watrer and some finger sandwiches at at the foot of the bed.
<AlcarGM> Oh, and a loaded beretta :p
* Mary_jane`^ gulps the water and eats
<AlcarGM> Jeeves covers all bases :)
<Mary_jane`^> lol!
* Mary_jane`^ does not eat a bullet

<AlcarGM> she looks at you, worried. You catch your reflection in the stove, and you do look about half dead.
<Mary_jane`^> (( I'm a ZOMBIE! ))
<Mary_jane`^> "Is something wrong?"
<AlcarGM> (( That could be arranged :p ))
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "You just look wiped...."
<Mary_jane`^> "I've been worse." Lieing

<AlcarGM> The AI regards it: "Processing. Error. Error. What is your security class, citizen?"
<Mary_jane`^> damnit
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm not a citizen. I'm a tourist."
<AlcarGM> AI: "Information on the High Tongue is restricted to those given access by King Prospero."
<Mary_jane`^> "WHere do I find the king?"
<AlcarGM> AI: "He is currently on the 28th floor reading the collected works of Prospero."

<Mary_jane`^> it's almost time for me to go... I can FEEL it
<Mary_jane`^> it's clawing away at me, layer for layer
<AlcarGM> lol!
<Mary_jane`^> like an onion my mind gets smaller
<AlcarGM> nice sleeping pill :p
<Mary_jane`^> I'm just joking around right now
<Mary_jane`^> soon I will be serious =(

<alcar[away]> Hrm, for some reason this talk about deleting people has me wanting to create an rpg where ytou play suicides.
<alcar[away]> and go around deleting people, or something.
<aslhk> alcar[away], you are sick =p
<alcar[away]> it could be fun :p Though the motive for deleting people currently escapes me.
<alcar[away]> ooh., I have it. Use sucide as a way of saying "I won't be fired from life. I quit." and, due to Law One, the suicides become empowered to kill people who would cause others to die, murderers and the like, and have to hunt them down and dispatch them.
<alcar[away]> It would be fun, tho. Ghosts wandering earth trying to stop various Bad People from doing Bad Things, but having a limited amount of time wherein they can interact with the real world. Say, a few months before the grief of those they left behind turns into a kind of acceptance.
<alcar[away]> For a darker tone, there could also be a group who seek out people prone to suicide and try and arrange matters so that their leave as much grief as possible behid when they die, so they are more useful after their death
<alcar[away]> unfortuantely, I can't think of a single way to create such an rpg without offending pretty much everyone :p

* Mary_jane`^ digs through her pocket for money, then realizes they're not her pants.
<Mary_jane`^> (( They're my emergency pants ))
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))

* Mary_jane`^ begins to write a 12 word sentance "Because each word has infinate meanings only until you put them together do they have a meaning that makes sense."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "It's not old. It;'s ... the language of the previous universe. The one God destroyed."
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "..."
* Mary_jane`^ thinks about that for a minute but continues writing "Then how did it make it to this universe?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "That's the thing no one is sure about. THere's some theories about gnostics, and the fae are reputed to be from that previous universe, though how they got from it to this one is a mystery."
* Mary_jane`^ hands him the paper "Does that make sense to you?"
<AlcarGM> He looks at it. "Colourless green ideas sleep furiously? I..... guess it does. In theory."

<Mary_jane`^> "But why would they say THIS?"
* Mary_jane`^ puts out any embers and throws the paper in the trash
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Oh. Inititiation....." He frowns at it. "I have no idea. I assume you were trying to tell yourself something, but couldn't. We don't know much about whatever universe was before us, or why God felt He had to destroy it. I think, maybe, that the lesser gods wanted more power than He/d give, and were willing to make war. Prospero thought it was the real Ragnarok story, the gods against God, and we're remembering the past. He could have been right."
<Mary_jane`^> He could have
<Mary_jane`^> "Prospero... I've heard that name before."
<AlcarGM> He could have been right."
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "In Atlantis. He was a fisher king, even if mad."
<Mary_jane`^> "OH, he was the king! That's right!"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Mind you, he also thought that everyone should worship some giant fire elemental that didn't actually exist. BUt that one theory makes some sense. I think."
* Sparkie made Alcar write that.

<AlcarGM> Luna is currently feeding ducks at a pond when you appear. She doesn't look up.
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<Mary_jane`^> what is she feeding them?
<AlcarGM> The pond (and ducks) were not there a few moments ago. And bread crumbs.
<Mary_jane`^> ...
* Mary_jane`^ is silent for a time, then "Luna? Are you ok?"
<AlcarGM> (( And not, say, hansel and gretel turned into bread crumbs. No sirree ))

<Mary_jane`^> "We need to know what the passenger was doing... Gabe is there any survalence in that area?"
<AlcarGM> Gabe: "Security cameras, probably, but we'd need someone who can get into them."
* Mary_jane`^ flips open her phone
* Mary_jane`^ dials home and hands it to jeeves "See if Sal can do it."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves nods. "Hmm. Uh huh. Yes, Ms. Consequence. No. No. I'm sure your daughter will call you when she can. Can I speak to his brother? No, he's not in trouble. Yes, he should be resting. Thank you."\
<AlcarGM> He covers the phone. "You'd better ask. I doubt I can lie to him as easily as your mother.
<Mary_jane`^> (( HIs brother? Since when is MJ a man?! OMG THE PLOT TWISTS! ))

<Mary_jane`^> damnit
<Mary_jane`^> it's getting late... but I don't want to leave before we get inside =(
<AlcarGM> Hrm.We can do that for next session, if you want.
<Mary_jane`^> no, that's the point
<Mary_jane`^> I don't want to leave before we do this... it's just now getting GOOD =p
<AlcarGM> lol.
* AlcarGM nods. It took longer than I thought to set up. BUt the whole "having a plan' was vital :p

* Mary_jane`^ checks her safety and makes sure there's a bullet in the chamber... maybe she's used one of thes... a couple times.
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "We'll take a car, split up once we get to the compound. They'll likely expect something, but probably sooner so we have a bit of an advantage. Be careful. Keep in contact. And if everything goes south, get out."
<Mary_jane`^> But nobody needs to know Nora snuck out with one when she was 12 to show off...
<AlcarGM> he rummages around under the sink and comes out with an uzi, sawed off shotgun, and a black dufefel bag.
<AlcarGM> (( lol. Yeah. ))

* Mary_jane`^ crouches in a jumping position... and prays that she really can do it...
* Mary_jane`^ jumps =p
<AlcarGM> You hit the ceiling. It's cement.Once. Twivce.... and third time is the charm as you break through.
<Mary_jane`^> ...
<Mary_jane`^> I make it to 3 times?
<AlcarGM> Jeeves puts the plastique away, and leaps up, catching the edge and summersaulting through it.
<AlcarGM> three times tobreak through through it
<AlcarGM> You're hands *hurt* .. some blood .. nothing broken, though.
<Mary_jane`^> I mean... I run into a cement... ceiling 3 times and win?
<AlcarGM> Jeeves. "Moderately impressive..."
<AlcarGM> Yup :)
<AlcarGM> Scared now? :)
<Mary_jane`^> "I told you jumping isn't my forte."
<Mary_jane`^> I'm affraid for my sanity
* AlcarGM grins.
<AlcarGM> What's possibly scarier is Jeeves doesn't even bat an eye.

* Melissa nods. "Tillie ... can you make yourself normal sized? We coudl go out for a bite ot eat, or some food."
<Melissa> (( .... Mel smacks her player. It's not his fault. He's just a wee bit tired. ))

<Mary_jane`^> "So, where are they?"
<AlcarGM> Roger: "Where are who? Ah. Your friends. The east wing. Hospital. Merely for gene mapping and blood tests, ar present. A pity the mother is too human to be of any real use to us. You, on the other hand, could be a valuable asset."
<AlcarGM> He pulls out a chequebook, and pen. "Blood and hair samples. Name your price."
<AlcarGM> Roger: "Well, your price after we deduct losses due to personel, the wards, and the exceedingly clever person you had disable the computer system. I so detest clever people."

<Mary_jane`^> "I'm not here for money, Roger. I don't need money, I can get everything I want without it."
<AlcarGM> Roger: "Hm. I very much doubt that." He closes the chequebook with a snap."Out of curiousity, how do you expect to leave this building alive?"
<Mary_jane`^> "If I told you that then it wouldn't be a secret."
<AlcarGM> he sighs and shakes his head. "Then I am afraid I will have to end this farce now. You are costing the company far too much money, and I don't even want to think at the price of ward replacenment in this day and age. Good bye."
* Mary_jane`^ waves to him
<AlcarGM> The walls lash out, razor sharp, coming alive and attempting to behead you and and Jeeves
* Mary_jane`^ ducks with a "Whoa" and grabs jeeves incase he isn't fast enough
<AlcarGM> Belatedly, you realize what he reminds you of. Gabe, in some perverted way.Somehow, he is this building. No, the corporation. He's part of it, like a puppet, or a robot...
<AlcarGM> Jeeves is, barely. "I think this is your area of expertise," he says, shooting Roger between the eyes.
<AlcarGM> Roger doesn't even blink. "That was quite uncalled for."
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "And him, too," with barely a pause.

<Mary_jane`^> "Right..."
<Mary_jane`^> "I suppose if merlin could do it..."
<AlcarGM> (( .. Uh .. oh :p ))
<AlcarGM> The GM hides.
<Mary_jane`^> LoL!
<Mary_jane`^> I was thinking more along the part of hurting a fisher king... but he's not really a fisher king... so It shouldn't be as hard... i hope

<AlcarGM> The rumbling stops. YOu're buried in rubble, but the shield is holding.
<AlcarGM> Roger: "Remarkable...."
<Mary_jane`^> "WHat are you?"
<AlcarGM> You *think* you can hear Jeeves shouting your name, but his voice is coming from a long distance away.
<AlcarGM> Roger: "The COO of this branch of HeretiCorp, of course. We are the corporation with a soul."
<Mary_jane`^> "So it seems..."
<AlcarGM> Roger: "If I die,another will replace me. And another. And we will caull you to acocunt for the damanages you've done today. our Accountants will not be denied."
<AlcarGM> (( *smiles evilly* ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( Oh shit... ))

* Mary_jane`^ tries the truth thing, first, not overdoing the staff thing
<AlcarGM> To do what?
<Mary_jane`^> I dunno... Show him what he is?
<Mary_jane`^> I mean, seriously, he's a corporation what CAN I do?
<AlcarGM> You look at him. He stare back, entirely unmoved and unaffected.
<AlcarGM> (( *grins* awesome villain, yes? :P ))
<Mary_jane`^> "OK... that's just wierd."
<AlcarGM> Roger: "We know full well what we are. We are capitalism, and a free market."

<Mary_jane`^> I need to name these spell/things
<AlcarGM> yes :P
<AlcarGM> preferably not with really long "Way of .... blah blah balh 342!" tho :p
<Mary_jane`^> and then I have to repeat the name of it outloud whenever I use it! YES!
<AlcarGM> "Way of .. of ... uh .... give me second ... I'll remember it in a bit..."

<AlcarGM> Your power rises... and the barrier holding you shatters. Roger blinks, his expression almost shocked. "What.. are you...?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Goodbye roger. I'm sorry we didn't get more time together."
<AlcarGM> What do you do?
* Mary_jane`^ pins him to a wall, not hitting any vital organs... and promises herself to learn acupuncture to paralyze people with this trick
<AlcarGM> lol. K. You pin him, and he bleeds..... over his suit. Furious about that, you imagine.
* Mary_jane`^ runs out the door
<AlcarGM> Erm. You're still under rubbke, even if it is now breadcrumbs being eaten away by a horde of ducks :P
<Mary_jane`^> LoL!
* Mary_jane`^ looks at the ducks oddly and forces herself a hole in the rubble a la magic wind

<AlcarGM> You find the room Jacob is in easily. It's a large, paded room, with words wriutten in the High Speech all over it, words soehow binding his power into the room. 3 doctors are stading on the other side of a bulletfroproof glass, and ome is whowing Roarsach prints and asking him what they are.
<AlcarGM> He's just glaring at them.

<AlcarGM> The doctorsmirks. "Then you're too late. We don't know how to free him,nor wouldbe. He clearly has an over developed thyroid gland.."
<AlcarGM> You want to just, oh, break the glass or something?
<Mary_jane`^> "He doesn't... You're serious?"
<AlcarGM> The doctor nods, dead serious. "Very agreesive, pront to manic-depressive anxiety, possibly schizophrenic and bipoloar and clearly sufferly from an overly developed sense of vengeance."
<Mary_jane`^> "He's probably mad at you." Hitting the glass

<AlcarGM> Nora is on a hosital bed with IVs and tubes, and charts, and machnes, practrically buried in them. A surgeon is, currently, examinga blood sample. "Nurse? Note the increased mitochloriam ((SP)) count. Clearly, the dark side is strong with this one."
<AlcarGM> The nurse is staring at youn and Jacob in the door,horrified.
<AlcarGM> The doctor turns. "Nurse? THat was a .... joke ...."
<AlcarGM> She's unconcious, likely weak from blood loss, but alive.
<Mary_jane`^> "Hello doctor. Take the IVs out, now."
<AlcarGM> The doctor, wiser than the psychologists, does so. Promptly.

<AlcarGM> Mr and Mrs Robins are both sedated, but otherwise unharmed.
<AlcarGM> Well, at least as far as you can tell.
* Mary_jane`^ grabs fred, and velma, and daphne if she's around
* Mary_jane`^ teleports to the 4th floor
<AlcarGM> Erm. Remind me who Daphne is again? My brain went blank :p
<Mary_jane`^> LoL!
<Mary_jane`^> Scooby doo!
<Mary_jane`^> she's the hot one =p
<AlcarGM> Oh! Okay. I thught I'd used that as an NPC as well:)
<Mary_jane`^> LoL no
<AlcarGM> And yeah, I ojnly realized the name thing after I'd named them

<Mary_jane`^> that's... odd
<Mary_jane`^> what are the chances, really? Velma isn't a common name =p
<Mary_jane`^> it's prolly a subconscious thing
* AlcarGM nods. I'd been thiunking "Need a slutty name for the mother ..Velma!
<Mary_jane`^> Seriously?
<AlcarGM> Yup.
<AlcarGM> Sad, eh? :)
<Mary_jane`^> Velma would be the last name I pick...
<Mary_jane`^> Although thinking about it makes odd thoughts of her yelling "jinkies jinkies jinkies" durring sex go through my head
* AlcarGM shrugs. As you said probably scooby doo in the subsconciousness. And I don't know why I thought it'd be slutty :p

* Chaos`^ has joined #game1
* ChanServ sets mode: +o Chaos`^
<Chaos`^> I am so TIRED!
<alcar> lol
<alcar> So no session tonight? :p
<Chaos`^> LoL
<Chaos`^> No, I"m just complainin

<AlcarGM> You waken in the guest bedroom that is starting to feel a bit too much like it's "yours" after the past few days.
<AlcarGM> You're rested, unhurt, and your power feels ,if anything, stronger than it used to be. Given that you broke concrete, that's a bit worrying.
<Mary_jane`^> wait
<Mary_jane`^> I went to sleep?
<Mary_jane`^> shit..

<AlcarGM> Jeeves nods to you. "Good morning." It's 7 am, though you know that without having to look at the clock.
<Mary_jane`^> How do I know that? HOW DO I KNOW THAT!?
<Anelelinde> (( don't you know how you know that? ))
<AlcarGM> becayuse you have been Initiazted and can feel the sun. quite literally. In a magical sense!
<AlcarGM> (( Though that was covered just after the whole initiation bit :P ))

<Mary_jane`^> Family dinner time... MJ gets to make a salad...
<Mary_jane`^> House burns down

<AlcarGM> Luna is not in any ofthe guest rooms. But you find the one that was likely hers because the roof is covered in glowing fish. And there is a note on the bed.
* Mary_jane`^ reads the note
<Anelelinde> (( suicide note? ))
<Anelelinde> (( love note? ))
<AlcarGM> The note is written in a quick scrwawl. "Have gone to FBI. Don't come. Explaining things. Clearing your name. Will be back later."
<Mary_jane`^> (( Awww that'd be totally sweet ))
<Anelelinde> (( C-sharp? D-flat? ))
<AlcarGM> (( suicide love note ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( indeed ))
* Mary_jane`^ folds the note neatly and pockets it... then realizing she's still in her pj's goes to take a shower

<AlcarGM> Okay. You take your shower, and breafast is being served as you get out, via Nora smacking the door. "Are you going to be in there all day?"
* Mary_jane`^ opens the door to Nora and jumps her with a "NORA! You're awake! They thought it'd be a few days but that's a normal human I guess."
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Lesbo! And .. ow .. .there are stiches. Like, where they removed blood. And my appendix. And I don't know what else."
<Mary_jane`^> "Well, for what it's worth I think you're going to be cloned.... and probably have some genetically mutated brothers and sisters."
* Mary_jane`^ finishes brushing her teeth
<AlcarGM> Nora blinks. Stares. Then rallies. "As long as they don't any of the inheritance, it's fine."

<AlcarGM> Nora: ".. why would anyone clone me? And how did they? I mean, I was here, and I woke up with some weird people poking me, and then in my bed again... what happened?""
* Mary_jane`^ walks out past her
<Mary_jane`^> "Your dads company kidnapped your family and jake and did genetic experiments and stuff on you."
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... uh huh. Wait. You're not kidding?"
<Mary_jane`^> "No."
<AlcarGM> She marches downstairs, with "Dad, what the hell kind of pension plan were you on?!"

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I could be CLONED here. Which actually sounds cool. And would be cool, if I was a lesbian. But i'm not. And I'm a bloody half demon,or something. *I* wouldn't want me cloned."
<Anelelinde> (( are these normal clones or the fast-growth types? ))
<Mary_jane`^> "You are totally gay..." Under her breath so hopefully nobody can hear
<AlcarGM> (( of course the later :p ))
<AlcarGM> Kiesha snickers.
<AlcarGM> Nora, luckily, doesn't hear.
<Mary_jane`^> Pitty
<Anelelinde> (( ahh, lesbian self-incest is one thing, but not if you're being a child molestor too =b ))
<AlcarGM> (( gives new meaning to getting in touch with your inner child ))

<Mary_jane`^> jake isn't from heaven or hell
<Mary_jane`^> OMG OMG OMFG
<Mary_jane`^> I know where he's from and why the high tongue worked on him!
<Mary_jane`^> and it all makes so much sense
<Mary_jane`^> It all falls into place
<Mary_jane`^> he is the sole survivor from the previous universe
<Mary_jane`^> besides god that is
<Mary_jane`^> and whatever other gods survived..
<Mary_jane`^> but he's not a god
<AlcarGM> Maybe :p
<Mary_jane`^> He's a very chivalrous god if he is
<Anelelinde> mmm, chivalry

<Anelelinde> so, when this universe ends, will he and MJ still be around for the next one? =b
<Mary_jane`^> LoL
<Mary_jane`^> Maybe it will be just MJ maybe it's like...
<AlcarGM> of course! You figured out my Adam and Eve plot!
<AlcarGM> curses!
<Mary_jane`^> the supposed savior of each universe has to help the next universe's savior until it ends
<Mary_jane`^> then the savior can die
<Mary_jane`^> kinda like spawn but not really
<Anelelinde> what would MJ do with a universe and absolutely no one else?
<Mary_jane`^> Silly, universes are made populated
<AlcarGM> Say "Let there be a party!"
<Mary_jane`^> How do you think this one is only 6000 years old?

<Mary_jane`^> The world ends, and MJ wakes up in the same world she died in... She walks around looking for her friends, but she recognizes no one. She speaks an unknown language, but her old one wasn't forgotten either. She carries with her two sparks of creation and a staff... And she is in the new world, and thus the old one ends her friends and everyone she knew with it.
<Mary_jane`^> Kind of dramatic
<AlcarGM> lolo. Yes :) But would make the secon campaign harder :p
<Mary_jane`^> yeah
<AlcarGM> it would be called Stranger in a Strange Land, if that happened :p

<AlcarGM> Nora: :"Wait a sec. What can we do for these seals? If nothing, then what can we actually *do* until the end of the world?"
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "Get wasted?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Get ready for Arthur and Merlin to make their moves. If we can defeat Merlin then the threat to the seals will be over... We'll likely have to create new ones."
<AlcarGM> Nora: ".... how?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "I mean, I'm getting visuals and .. .ewww."
<Mary_jane`^> what'd be interesting
<Mary_jane`^> is if MJ was put in there and we made an actual campaign out of it... with real pcs
<AlcarGM> how so?
<Mary_jane`^> More players in a semi-post modern setting...
<Mary_jane`^> it'd require creating a few new religions and pantheons but nothing serious

<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "YOU have toi call your brother."
* Mary_jane`^ cringes and hunches
<Mary_jane`^> "Right..."
<AlcarGM> (( Jeeves forgets nothing! :p ))
<AlcarGM> jeeves frowns.
<AlcarGM> Kiesha: "I better go home, in case anyone actually cares if I show up there. Or at school, for that matter."
<Mary_jane`^> "You should call your mom Gabe."
* Mary_jane`^ leaves to call her brother
<AlcarGM> Gabe cringes and hunches. "Right.."
<AlcarGM> (( :p ))

<AlcarGM> The further you delve, the stranger it gets, though. It seems that, in this language, people didn't exist as individuals., in the sense that we'd use the term.
<AlcarGM> (( This might get confusing :P ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( WE ARE BORG! ))
* Mary_jane`^ writes "Resistance is futile" on the door
<Mary_jane`^> (( COntinue, please, I"m listening =p ))
<AlcarGM> it is more than subject cannot perceive itself. Everything we can perceive is object. So all that is object appears to exist, and thus subject alone doesn't appear to exist. But object can'tg exist apart from subject, since it;'s manifested BY subject (the ultimate I)., so subject is object, and object is subject and we are our abscence.
<Mary_jane`^> Did you make this up or get this from somewhere?
<AlcarGM> There is no individual I, since anything individual is thereby an object. Sort fo like the quantum idea of creating our own universes, taken to some strange level
<AlcarGM> (( got it from somewhere :P ))

<AlcarGM> Jacob is waiting outside, looking at you curiously. "What were you doing?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Learning a universe."
<Mary_jane`^> "I'm hungry."
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "As long as you didn't eat it."

<Mary_jane`^> (( Great, now that I know the language, what are the 13 words I had? ))
<AlcarGM> (( whatever you want them to be, essentially. What you DID have tho, was Jehovah, Why, How, Because, Why?!, Resistance is fertile, gruahwalt, Fae, World, Hope, and 3 variants of Change ))
<AlcarGM> (( the variants of change includes tenses such as future perfect and future imperfect ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( OMG... WTF is future perfect and future imperfect? ))
<AlcarGM> (( yup, as tenses. ))

<Mary_jane`^> "How old are you Jake?"
<AlcarGM> Jacob: I am an angel. We were before the universe was."
<AlcarGM> (( 6000 years, 3 seconds. :p ))

* Mary_jane`^ goes to the dinning room
<AlcarGM> Jeeves is setting it up, and dusting things. With a dust brusk woith a handle a lot thicker than needed that could easily be used to brain people unconscious.
<AlcarGM> Jeeves, the first servant who buys cleaning utentsils for their potential in a fight.
<Mary_jane`^> LoL
<Mary_jane`^> "Jeeves, you were in the military right?"
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "A few of them, yes. Why?"
<Mary_jane`^> "You were a spy or something?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Why become a butler?"
<AlcarGM> Jeeves: "The pay was better."

<Mary_jane`^> Note to self: Do not introduce Luna to acid.

* Mary_jane`^ stands "Maybe we can go somewhere fun after that too... I'm not sure what you call fun now that you're sane though."
* Mary_jane`^ goes to the dinning room for lunch
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I do not know either. I think making men naked and dance on tables might count."
<AlcarGM> Jacob wishes he wasn't here ;P
<Mary_jane`^> "Oooh... You're almost 18 too so you might be able to sneak in."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I can go anywhere the moon goes." .... "sneak in where?'
<AlcarGM> Jacob: "Somewhere you should not be," firmly
<Mary_jane`^> "The strip clubs, where men get naked and dance on tables for money. We need an id that says we're 18... or 21 depending on the state... and money."
<AlcarGM> Luna brightens. "I can make people believe we are! It could be fun!"
* Mary_jane`^ nods firmly "We'll do it, then!"
<AlcarGM> You have sandwiches, and Nora is awake so you go up to see her after, Luna barging in to say "We need money for strippers" . .and end of secene :P

<Mary_jane`^> "OK but before we go I wanted to show you all this new language that I learned, called the high tongue. Evidently just knowing it makes god hate you."
<AlcarGM> Nora stares at you. "Why would I want to learn it, then?"
* Mary_jane`^ frowns at that "You have a point! Let's just go."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "The moon knows it, now. Because the moon is almost dark, and it's an old secret," to herself, eating a sandwich. "like Windows."
<Mary_jane`^> "Which you can see through. Are you ready? I need something to wear."

<AlcarGM> Luna frowns, and is now wearing a silver dress that, from certain angles, looks more like a straight jacket.
<Mary_jane`^> "You need something that shows more skin Luna."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "Okay...." and the dres is now decorated by flaps of skin hanging down all over it.

<AlcarGM> Luna frowns at the closet. "You know half of that is dead animals. Or sheared ones."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "What happens when we run out of animals?"
<Anelelinde> (( breed some more =b ))
<AlcarGM> Nora gets into it, wincing a bit. "We start on babies. Supple skin, use them for veal later," absently.

<Mary_jane`^> "We won't run out of animals. THere are too little already. Let's go! Hmm... How are we going to get there?"
<AlcarGM> Luna: "We could -"
<Mary_jane`^> "Could...?"
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Cab. I don't want to know how Luna would get us there."
* Mary_jane`^ shrugs to Nora
<Mary_jane`^> "Ok."
<AlcarGM> Luna: "I was going to say fly, on fairy dust. Neverland is nice this time of year. As long as you don't bring a clock."
<Mary_jane`^> "Let's just do the cab thing."
* Mary_jane`^ goes downstairs
* Mary_jane`^ calls up a cab service
<AlcarGM> (( aww :p ))
<AlcarGM> (( wanted you to meet Peter Pan pimping Wendy. ))
<Mary_jane`^> (( NO ))

<Mary_jane`^> I wonder what happens when mj gets drunk
<GeminiRai> she destroys the world
* AlcarGM has no idea :P I would suggest she not try and manifest the staff while drunk tho :)
<Mary_jane`^> I would too, but she's not a very good listener when drunk
<GeminiRai> "Whatever you do, don't try to get the staff" "This staff?"
<GeminiRai> (world ends)

<AlcarGM> Nora: "I feel ... hungry."
* Mary_jane`^ walks--stumbles down the street with her almost gone mug "Me too... Let's go get something to eat... I think the krispe kreme is still open."
<AlcarGM> Luna nods and follows, looking rather blurred around the edges.
<AlcarGM> Nora: "Do donuts have souls?"
<Mary_jane`^> "Luna you're out of focus."
<Mary_jane`^> "Oh, yes I think so. That's how they get them to stay so fresh."

<AlcarGM> Luna begins singing at the top of her lungs. "Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a doo, I love you. I love you in the morning and in the afternoon. I love you in the evening and underneath the moon."
<AlcarGM> (( things like this are why we decided to never let Luna sing again :p ))
