Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Halia

Her eyes fluttered open slowly, things seemed to move around her in blurry slow motion. She was sitting infront of something hard, that much she knew. The faces around her were familiar, but she could not make out their words the ringing in her ears was still too fierce yet.

Desperatly she searched her memory and it came, the blue gem and then a bright white light and she was knocked off her feet. She had been distracted when she saw the blue gem flare, distracted for just a moment and she wasn't sure yet what that had cost her.

Instinctivly her hand moved toward the pouch on her belt. As she moved she felt pain rise up around her and she winced. The pain would have to be ignored for the moment though, and she pushed it aside as her fingers dug into the pouch finding the vial that contained a healing potion in it. Using her teeth she uncorked it and drank half of it before sliding the cork back in place and hiding it safely away.

Then her eyes closed and she leaned back a moment letting the tangy elixer work it's magic. Feeling the tingles of it running through her, subduing her pain and at the same time restarting her senses.

Subject: Question Time

Okay two things from me:

1. So we only see the one woman, no one peeking in from behind her or anything, but we do -hear- others in the inn, correct?

2. The Clock Tower... is it a free standing tower, or is it attached to a building like a church or town hall or something? Just trying to get a mental picture of it so maybe I could slide it in the background of my pic of Eve.

yeah... me too... Eve is gonna be a bit pissy now... thank goodness those people showed up, and that Guin has kept her thoughts to herself so Eve is less likely to pummel the poor blonde with that night stick

Oh... I worked up a fun sketch of her, it's kind of... Pulpy... once I figure out what is going on with my scanner I'll put it up for you all

Topic: Witchcraft: Stare into the Night
Subject: Hey look... she can be -kind of - nice...

Alex stopped for a moment when he got closer to Smoke, crouched down beside her and, moving a few loops of twine to do so, rubbed her under her chin. "She's screwed, Smoke-darlin'," he repeated... then offered a sardonic smirk and amended that estimation; "I'm screwed..."

He rested his hand on her head then and winked. "What else is new, right?"

Puffing on the remains of his cigarette, Alex got to his feet and continued down the hall to the kitchen. "How's that coffee comin', Rosie," he called.

Smoke purrs a bit when he rubs under her chin and attacks the twine as it moves.

You know Alex, love... the last time I took a tally... you -weren't- screwed, which I thought I had diagnosed as a problem, one that could be fixed, if you weren't acting like such a dope...
she sends this to Alex, and thankfully for him, just to Alex.

Finally she rolls over onto her stomach instead of displaying it. The twine twists around her paws and she stares up at the new woman, Penelope she says her name is. She takes a good minute to really look her over then finally speaks to her:

Penelope... you must pardon Alex. It isn't often he gets actual clients walking through this door, nor any as pretty as you, though I'm sure you are aware of that, he also doesn't get any that come in with trinkets like that. And... well... he is a man, and human to boot... and if there is one creature that has no manners, even if they are not presented with a triple shock as you have just done to the poor man, it is human males. So... I'm Ellgawen, but he calls me Smoke, and so may you, if it pleases you. And don't be too worried... if those demon worshiping cowards are really involved this is the right place to go.

If cats could smile at people she would now, instead she licks a paw daintily.

Subject: That sounds right...

ohh... and why!? Dear Lord why does Alex make it so EASY for Smoke to give him snotty/lewd comments? lol... I'm just rolling over here as I think of like twenty ways I can construe his latest comments into something delightfully Smoke-like.

Subject: Whereabouts...

I think she did a quick look over of the building from the front to see if anything -looked- more loose then anything else... and then walked up to a window at the front which is where she is with Bas at the moment.

*nod* Or something along those lines... I'm kind of flexible though.

Subject: Well then...

Here posted a small reply to Bas. Kind of figured I needed more from Rer to continue, and maybe something from Guin too

Rer - Obviously her intent is to get inside somehow. She has nothing that is overly useful in her bag to help her with that so however she can using her hands and perhaps the flashlight to break a window...

“Looking for a way in,” he asks rhetorically, that enigmatic ghost-smile curling the corners of his mouth.

Eve rolls her eyes up to him just as she is reaching out to test one of the boards on a window. For a moment the reply she has sticks in her throat. It is hot, heavy and acidic as it rests there.

Don't you get snippy with him dear, you know better then to get snippy her mother warns...

And for a moment she heeds the warning, as she always has. For years and years replies have stuck in her throat, their tastes from sweet to sour to bitter dripping back down into her stomach to fester there. Always afraid of what would happen if they were to be vomitted out. Afraid because even when they had seemed like decent replies they would sometimes result in a black eye or worse.

But that was Cheryl, Cheryl was afraid. Cheryl was dead. This was freedom and she'd say whatever she **** well pleased. And if this hulking figure had an issue with it, had an issue that he felt needed to be dealt with with his fist, well... Cheryl didn't hit back... but Cheryl was dead. Eve did hit back.

"No... I'm trying to get OUT" She retorts finally, in real time there is only a second of space that she hesitates before saying this and then rolling the eyes she gives him before they refix themselves on the board on the window.

And stop using me as a meat shield... I'm too skinny!!

Ohh... and why are the Azzy's leaving trinkets in Penelope's house?

*aside* Feels she should know this since she has taken up the role of the cult leader of these silly demon leaders recently... lol
Also feels she should learn the actual name of this demon instead of using nicknames all the time or having to go look up the 'horned goat demon' constantly...
Is he the demon in Dogma btw?

Ohhh! No more aside... anyway... onward and upward my friends!!

Topic: Loaded Dice#15: Just Playing my Character (part one)
Subject: hehe

I had a char that was kind of the opposite... she was terrified of battle, her first one she spent crawling around on her hands and knees.

Best part was she was the healer... everyone was dying and she was too terrified to get close enough to do anything.

Eventually she started to get over that, especially once she realized that I had made her nearly impossible to hit, but even then she would not run into battle if she didn't have to.

1545 - 1551 Dublin, Liam O'Shea, Gravedigger

1560 -1569 Chelmsford, England, Sybil Waterhouse, sister of Agnes Waterhouse who was hung for witchcraft involving a familiar. In Chelmsford there were many witch crazes in the following years. Often related to familiars. Several Bast's were present in the town, attracted to each other and forming their own coven to stand side by side with the huamn coven. Wicce based, however, most of the cats (including Ellgawen) did not thing to stop the slaughters. (Note: This is something she likely has NOT told Alex about)

1571 - 1582 Chelmsford, England, Joan Upney, accused of witchcraft and hung.

1583 - 1590 Chelmsford, England, Geroge Upney

1606 - 1618 Ellgawen, Sweden, Barbara Rufin, she is accused of poisoning her son, is tortured and confesses to witchcraft and names several others involved, this starts a witch craze.

1825 - 1832 Georgia, USA, Ruth Twilliger, helps Ruth escape from slavery.

1840 - 1856 Georgia, USA, Virginia Salt, given to Virginia as a present when she is a small child. Ellgawen prolongs her death when she catches small pox but the girl dies at 17 anyway.

1858 - 1863 Savannah, Georgia, Lenora Hastings, Lenora is part of a coven (debating association still) working to prevent/end the Civil War in favor of the South. Union soldiers discover the coven and set fire to the home they are in, killing them all, includig Ellgawen.

1890 - 1899 Missouri, Toby Nelson, young boy in asylum who is killed, despite Ellgawen's best efforts, by the doctors trying to 'cure' him of his Gift (Note: This is also something she doesn't talk about much, it pained her a great deal)

** Dormant until present day **

Topic: Stare into the Night Q&A
Subject: A Rolling Stone...

Makes for squishy PC's...

1. I like the idea of getting the char sheets together somewhere, and maybe bits of background stories in there too. I think I can trust this group not to metagame too badly

2. I likewise agree that all the characters are going to undergo some development/improvement as this goes on, and character points should likely be awarded in some fashion to account for that.

3. Our villians - are we building them to be the same 'level' as our PC's or do we think they deserve more points and such?

4. Alice... well I don't know more then what you put up in that last post but I'm intruiged. Another off balanced char to oppose Rosie and trust me there isn't much you could do that would make -me- uncomfortable, so dish it out!

5. This is fun!!!

Glad you enjoyed... and yes I Boondocked it up there. I have a feeling Katul is a movie buff and we'll be seeing lots of movie quotes from him.

Especially movies with mobsters. hehe... glad you liked it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Topic: Auguries of Destruction - The Clock Tower
Subject: Breaking and Entering... just add it to the wrap sheet...

Even with the street lights that are still on, despite the apparent lack of people, Eve keeps her flashlight on as they enter into the town. She keeps her right hand on her bag and her eyes on every shadow, waiting for something to move, and only getting more and more tense as nothing does. Silence is something she does not like, silence used to precede the storms that rose up in her life and turned her black and blue.

She keeps ahead of the rest of the group as she walks, her long legs keeping her moving quickly through the abandoned streets. The only thing that is comforting about the situation is that there are no police, maybe stopping here wouldn’t be as bad as she had originally thought it would be. She could also restock her supplies. No one was here to stop her from taking what she needed and she wouldn’t feel bad about it as it had all been abandoned.

First things first though, a place to sleep for the night. In the morning she could get up and start looking for some supplies and then figure out a way to get out of this God forsaken town and get to Mexico, without the pack.

The sign of course catches her eye. Hopefully the inn would have beds, perhaps some food and water too. She walks toward it, running her flashlight up along the building to inspect it further. Her grip tightens on the bag as she moves off the main sidewalk.

What she does first is to inspect the place for signs of life, if she finds none she will then start to look at the boards that have closed the place up, seeing if there is one that looks more loose or nailed in improperly so that it would be easy for her to pry up.

Ah here is the short and sweet post from Smoke...

Oh Char sheet, yeah I still gotta work on that for Katul. Part of the reason I kept this to conversation as much as possible. lol...

Topic: Witchcraft: Stare into the Night
Subject: Back at the Ranch...

Yeah that's right, go ahead and ignore me... Smoke commented as she rolled around on the floor with the twine.

She wondered how long it would take him to notice that the woman who stood before him was much more then just a pretty lady. Even if he couldn't see past the blanket he'd know she had ability. Inwardly she wished that Rosie had more awareness, she could talk to her now, start a bet on how long it will take him to notice anything more then her body, and how long it would take before he offered his bed to her. Although on second thought maybe suggesting to Alex that he should get laid wasn't such a good idea, that bed was hers, having to give it up for a night would be a great inconvenience, even for Alex.

But she seemed to have a job for Alex, and for the moment she was content to play here on the floor and let them ignore her so long as she was able to listen in on the conversation.

Well I appologize for the length, I started writting and just didn't stop, lol. I haven't reread it so I hope it is coherent.
