Nain tries to surround the area of the hovering stench.

It's just that I am not going to write down what happens to Nain if she has to sniff this. :roll:

I have no problem with all of this banter. In fact it makes sense for some of you. Remember that none of you can recall anything that happened beyond a few days, and now you've been thrown together by what appears to be some odd twist of fate. It's only natural that some of you would start to resent that. Just a calm pointer however that you really don't remember anything, so all you have to go on is what has happened so far.

 

Coin looks at all of you for a moment, confusion showing in his eyes. In the end, he turns to Metal Man and 'Knife', the two who were kindest to him. Er... Do your friends always act like this? Krill had said you were powerful tyrants but I would have thought you would have... He trails off, hanging his head as if embarrassed to keep talking. Er... Sorry... Did you want to know anything else? He then seems to remember the questions about the fire. Oh! Yes! The fire! Well, Krill was never completely sane, but at least before she used to act it. It was about a week or so ago that she started ranting and raving about some cat who had stolen her fire. He pauses and looks between Tagrel and Therass. I guess that's probably one of you two... Before I go any further, what do you all think of that god-flame? He points to the massive pillar of fire on top of the rocks.
OUT OF CHARACTER
This is where things might get slow. Because of what's been happening, I really need some input from Therrass, but unfortunately AlGrom is absent until he comes back from his wedding towards the end of the month. I'm currently hopping between waiting and controlling his character myself. Could I have your input on what to do?

1. Continue as we are, keeping the banter going and getting some roleplaying out of it.
2. Wait for AlGrom and put this game on hold for a while.
3. Let me control him and hope he forgives me :P

Benji, I suggest for #3, so we can move this along.

 

I wouldn't really know, although they seem to like to argue like this inside the inn. says Knife.

Ny glances up and back at Coin, Who really knows, but we can check it out. with his last word he looks to the rest and says, Gonna look for a way up. Lets go Coin. He walks off, as if excited to look for something that may not be there.

I'd have to vote for #3 as well but I'm definitely game for more banter.

 

Gir makes a face at Coin as he says It's a bloody fire. It seems hot enough to be from a forge.

AlGrom gave me permission to run his character in the Veil game, so I doubt he'd have a problem with #3.

 

Tagrel says, I don't know nothin' about any fire. The first thing I remember is a dream about a cold place, so maybe it's the other cat she was talking about. And she seemed know Therass before we ended her.

Tagrel is more than willing to make a climb, but he's more interested in what Therass has to say first...

Ok, I'll control Therass for a while until he gets back.

 

Therass squints up at the pillar of flame and shrugs. The flame feelss nice on my fur... He says to Coin. The goblin gives him an appraising look before nodding slowly. Alright then. He says. You must be the one. Krill often mentioned being able to control flames with just her mind, she often bragged about it before and after she became insane, can you do that as well?

Therass furrows his eyebrows for a moment, concentrating on the fire. After a moment he shakes his head. Doessn't sseem like it.

Coin nods again, as if he knew what would happen. Makes sense. I don't know how Krill managed to control the flame, but I thought that maybe you might to... Ah well. He then turns around and follows Knife back to the rockface. Do you have any rope? I might be able to get us up some of the way and help the others if they want to come. I think that the cat-man should come at the least.

I am totally against that banter thingy, so I vote for #3.
Darn too late to matter :mrgreen:

 

Nain looks at Therass thinking:
THINKING: That little green totally controls Therass. I need to remember that technique.

She moves to the rockface trying to make sense to what the green thing is talking about.
OUT OF CHARACTER
I am sorry. Having trouble understanding what is said:
Rockface and Fire. Do we want to climb up or down?
Pillar of fire. Do we want to pass this?

I have no idea, but if this is a God of some sort. I do hope it has an answer. as Knife's words ends with a slight chuckle.

Rift looks up at the fire burning atop the hill. It holds no meaning to me. Perhaps this fire is that which Krill claimed to be stolen. It is probably best that we investigate it some more.

I'll just move things along a bit here...

 

As you start to climb your way up the rockface, you start to realise just how hot the flame really is. It was really warm outside of Krill's cave and as you get closer it just gets to be too much. As it is, only Therrass seems to have no trouble, he manages to climb all the way to the top without breaking his sweat. The rope he is using starts to burn at the edges, but he barely seems to notice as he keeps on climbing.

As luck would have it, he finally reaches the final ledge just before the rope finally tears from the intense heat. Clambering up on to the ledge, you all see him stumble closer to the flame.

Oh dear... Coin says, shading his eyes as he looks up. Somebody might want to snap him out of it or something... It didn't go well for Krill last time she got that closer. I doubt it will be any different for him either...
OUT OF CHARACTER
In retrospect, some of the things that are happening are kind of easier without AlGrom being here and us having to constantly ask for saving throws and the like. This way I can do it all on my own. Hehe :evil:

Ok, now we're getting to the point where things might start getting tricky. When AlGrom gets back, I'll need him to make a few choices for me. Until then... There's not really much else we can do. Sorry guys, I'm going to have to put this on hold for a few days until he gets back.

Well it would appear that Al Grom has had to abandon the game. For now, I will be taking full control of his character and will decide on a long term solution sooner or later. Expect a post before the end of the week.

Sorry for the massive delays guys :-(

Coin starts jumping up and down with agitation when it seems obvious that Therrass is ignoring all cries for attention. At one point, he even picks up a pebble and throws it at the catfolk, missing by miles.

Therrass, for his part, is doing a credible job of acting like a zombie. He shuffles ever closer to the flame, his face twisted in what appears to be ecstatic glee. After a few moments of the shuffling act, he falls onto his knees and disappears from sight.

Back in the land of the sane, Coin is still hopping around, looking more and more worried with every step that passes. After a while of this, he suddenly stops and begins a quiet count. He reaches fifteen at about the same time that Therrass reappears. He climbs nimbly down the rockface, showing none of the zombie-like movement he did moments ago. He reaches the bottom with ease and turns to face you all with a wide grin.

I remember! He says, right before falling flat on his face.

Nain takes off her cloak and puts it under Therrass's face to cusion it a bit.
Then she takes out some water:
Drink, you must be thirsty after all this fire stuff.
Getting out drops of water into the mouth.

As Nain tries to get him to drink, Therrass seems to have no problem swallowing the water, but doesn't seem to be overly responsive.

Rift:
SpoilerShow
Thanks to a decent heal check, you recognise him as suffering from some kind of mental delirium. You're not sure how to cure it though.
Coin leans over Therrass looking worried. Oh dear... Krill didn't take it this badly... She only went a little insane! Oh dear. Oh dear...

Something is wrong with him, however I do not believe it to be a physical exertion. It is some kind of problem within his mind.

Rift will kneel down next to Therass with Nain. Therass, you spoke that you remembered. Perhaps there is more you can tell us. If you cannot speak, just nod your head. Do you know where our memories went?

Therrass turns his head slightly towards Rift. You seek forgotten memories? A sickly smile crosses his face. You must first find your opposite equal! Only they know how to restore the memory... Therrass closes his eyes and sighs. I need to sleep. His breathing almost immediately turns regular as if in sleep.

Metal Man shifted his stance a bit. "Offhand I'd surmise that in exposing yourself to that flame you must enter into a kind of mental combat, perhaps with a demon of some sort, or a spiritually inverted reflection of yourself. Krill lost, and was taken over by a demon, while our comrade here was, I dare say, triumphant, and in the process or as a reward he regained his memories. I suggest we let him rest."

Tagrel scratches his head, causing dandruff to flutter around him in a cloud, Or maybe the flame itself is Therass' opposite equal. 'Cause fire is kind of the opposite of catfolk... I think.
OUT OF CHARACTER
It is unlikely that Tagrel would score very high on the verbal SATs... black :: white as fire :: catfolk?
