Session Start (moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit#moc.evil|eltrutyppah-anit:Group Conversation 9320): Wed Mar 24 18:24:40 2010
[18:24] Wolfbane: She's in the bath
[18:24] Shadowcaller: AH
[18:24] Happy: is not
[18:24] Wolfbane: oh
[18:24] Happy: well i was.
[18:25] Happy: puter hibernated while i was gone
[18:25] * moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[18:25] Shadowcaller: Hello Murska
[18:28] Aegnor: hi
[18:28] Shadowcaller: Um, could we start Something? >.>
[18:29] Shadowcaller: Spend my whole day waiting/looking for copy machines
[18:29] Wolfbane: We only went a little further after you left last night. It should be up
[18:30] Shadowcaller: [00:24] Wolfbane: He takes a bite of the fruit and red juice(remarkably like blood) dribbles down his chin. "Well, any questions? It's a bit of a pity you didn't take the doctor's offer though."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "I'm not that desperate…"
[00:26] Shadowcaller: "You should be aware that certain people would be offended by such offer."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: [00:29] Wolfbane: "And it could be said some people may be offended if you declined the offer. Not every culture is the same, we know, but it's necessary for more genetics research to move forward."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: Kara shrugs "I have a genetic defect, my genes shouldn't be that valuable."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: [00:36] Wolfbane: "Your genes may not seem so to you, but they're extremely valuable to us."
[18:32] Aegnor: and that was it?
[18:33] Shadowcaller: (Well, yeah, basically… Were some more stuff, but that was the latest. Nothing happened really. We are in some garden.)
[18:33] Wolfbane: (Green houses, filled with imported fruit trees)
[18:33] Aegnor: 'Eh. Genetics research is just one branch.'
[18:34] Wolfbane: (It should all be up right now)
[18:35] Shadowcaller: Kara shakes her head "Well, I don't understand why anyone would need 'get sick easily' genes."
[18:36] Wolfbane: "Easy. To find ways to treat the genes and block them from reproduction." He says casually, still eating the honey smelling fruit.
[18:37] Wolfbane: (Dan can take any fruit he sees to eat. Just make some up if you want. <.< )
[18:38] Happy: Lucia takes a pink fruit and bites into it, then makes a face. "I guess this one is supposed to be peeled first?" she says, chagrined.
[18:39] Aegnor: Dan takes three small orange fruits and starts juggling them.
[18:39] Shadowcaller: "Whatever…" Kara says, ignoring the fruits.
[18:40] Happy: (Kara is always grumpy…)
[18:40] Happy: (she didn't used to be)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: (Well, that's since she dosen't like this type of things:P)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: *these
[18:41] Wolfbane: She doesn't like being in a garden? >.>
[18:42] Shadowcaller: (She dosen't like manipulations of the body.)
[18:44] Wolfbane: Trev looks at Lucia with an apologetic smile. "Yeah, sorry. Nothing here is toxic to most people, but some don't taste very well unless cooked or eaten right." He finishes the one he is eating. "There is a zoo here if you want to see that too."
[18:44] Happy: (Purist!)
[18:45] Shadowcaller: (It's the sort of outsider personality I have really, if everyone is happy, you just need to be unhappy or the opposite:P)
[18:45] Happy: "No, it tastes fine without the peel," Lucia says.
[18:46] Happy: (So when someone starts shooting and everyone gets unhappy, Kara would be cheerful? :P )
[18:46] Shadowcaller: (Pffh, I know how it works.)
[18:46] Shadowcaller: (As I am like that.)
[18:46] Aegnor: Dan grabs one of the fruit and pushes a thumb through it's top, then sucking up the insides.
[18:47] Shadowcaller: Kara takes a deep breath and asks "A zoo? Sounds intresting."
[18:48] Shadowcaller: *interesting
[18:51] Wolfbane: He smiles. "It is. It even has a newer Deathmauler so Dan can see the Real Thing this time around."
[18:53] Shadowcaller: "Imagine he have seen too many of those already… Why are they called 'maulers' anyway?"
[18:58] Wolfbane: He shrugs. "It was called that by a diplomat who first found it."
[18:58] Wolfbane: "I think it has to do something with all it's spines and claws."
[18:59] Shadowcaller: "What do you call them then?"
[19:00] Wolfbane: "We just use Deathmaulers. It's simpler to just use the same name."
[19:02] Wolfbane: "Do you all wish to go see them then?"
[19:03] Happy: "Sure."
[19:03] Happy: (epic fail: (Link: )
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "I would prefer creatures I haven't seen yet, but sure."
[19:03] Wolfbane: (She hasn't seen it yet. <.<)
[19:03] Aegnor: 'All right.' Dan eats the other two fruit.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: (Sure he have, at the ship.)
[19:04] Wolfbane: (The spiders weren't the deathmaulers)
[19:04] Shadowcaller: *she
[19:04] Shadowcaller: (Well, she thought so.)
[19:04] Wolfbane: ah
[19:04] Shadowcaller: (Hence the question.)
[19:09] Wolfbane: Trev grabs a few more pieces of fruit and stands, putting them in a pouch at his side. "Take however much you want, and we'll go."
[19:11] Aegnor: Dan grabs one more of the same kind of fruit he was juggling.
[19:13] Happy: Lucia grabs a selection of ones she hasn't tried yet, and follows.
[19:13] Shadowcaller: Kara is just following.
[19:18] Wolfbane: Once they get to the zoo, you see the reinforced gate is open and signs warning not to tap the glass and taunt the dangerous animals. There appear to be several paths leading to different kinds of ecosystems. "Which would you like to see first? Water, Jungle, Desert, or Arctic? Jungle is the largest for obvious reasons."
[19:20] Shadowcaller: (Huh, I just got insulted. How odd.) "How large is this zoo?" Kara says, looking around with interest.
[19:20] Wolfbane: (You were?)
[19:20] Happy: ?
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[19:21] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[19:22] Aegnor: you insult a fanboy, fanboy insults you back
[19:22] Aegnor: seems pretty normal
[19:22] Shadowcaller: (Well, I admit I could have left that first part out.)
[19:23] Wolfbane: "It's fairly large. A few dozen exhibits."
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "It dosen't matter where we start, any animals are interesting to me."
[19:28] Wolfbane: *waits for the others*
[19:28] Aegnor: 'Yeah.'
[19:29] Shadowcaller: Kara glances at Dan "Well, Artic then?"
[19:30] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[19:34] Aegnor: um
[19:34] Aegnor: what?
[19:35] Shadowcaller: (I have no idea.)
[19:35] Aegnor: also, what does Kara mean?
[19:35] Shadowcaller: *arctic
[19:38] Wolfbane: "Alright then." He leads the way to the smallest section of animals. They are all behind reinforced glass and shock bars (on the inside). The first cage looks like nothing is in it except boulders on ice. THe plaque in front says there is supposed to be a "Karthun Fiend" inside.
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "Are they using some sort of camouflage, or are they just not there?" She says, looking closer at the cage.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: (And suddenly ninjas!)
[19:45] Happy: (sorry… trying to come up with roleplay at a zoo and failing..)
[19:46] Wolfbane: "THose boulders are actually it's eyes if that helps any. It's a plant. Senses heat."
[19:47] Shadowcaller: "Oh…" (Well, we could fast forward.)
[19:47] Shadowcaller: "An arctic plant? Very odd."
[19:48] Wolfbane: "If any of us were to touch that ice, it'd shoot up and close it's jaws. It's mouth is easily 20 feet wide."
[19:49] Wolfbane: (Want to fastfoward then?)
[19:50] Shadowcaller: (Well, people aren't very active, so I guess the answer is 'yes'.)
[19:50] Shadowcaller: "I only read about earth animals and these are nothing like these."
[19:50] Shadowcaller: *they
[19:52] Happy: (if you two want to rp the zoo and put Lucia and Dan on auto follow, go ahead)
[19:52] Shadowcaller: (EH, I like to go on with the plot as well.)
[19:52] Wolfbane: (We could always do that later anyways)
[19:53] Wolfbane: Okay then, when the time comes and after you're given a quick tour of Eclipsia's Temple as well, Trev leads you to the supply shuttle and after a moment of talking, you're all let on board. "Strap yourselves into a seat, just in case."
[19:55] Shadowcaller: Kara straps herself to her seat "Where are we going?"
[19:57] Wolfbane: "About 30 miles east of here is the coast, and a little further is an island. All the hostile life has been taken out of it to make the facility safer."
[19:57] Happy: "How do you keep it from moving b ack in?"
[20:00] Wolfbane: "Once all the land creatures are out, all they can do is fly, and the things that fly need a lot of territory, it takes a while for another to move in. Just avoid the water for the most part. Any pool will be inside."
[20:01] Shadowcaller: "Space… How can you live like this? Feels like everything here is out to kill you."
[20:02] Wolfbane: He shrugs. "It's home."
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "I suspect many people would call it 'grave'…"
[20:04] Wolfbane: "Grave, Muldoon, Death World, That Damned Jungle World…" he sighs. "It doesn't matter, it's what I like. I'd be unable to survive on Umbra."
[20:05] Shadowcaller: "We can adapt the climate a bit actually."
[20:06] Shadowcaller: "But I guess being near death can be exciting for some people."
[20:06] Wolfbane: "I doubt you'd be able to adapt your climate to this kind." There are two thuds on the outside of the hull, announcing that the clamps are being taken off and the engine starts to rumble.
[20:08] Shadowcaller: "What's so special about this climate?" Kara asks, holding on to the straps.
[20:10] Wolfbane: He grins. "In case you haven't noticed, it's 40+C and 95% Humidity. Perfect for me."
[20:11] Aegnor: 'Don't like it much. Not good for equipment.'
[20:13] Shadowcaller: "Sounds uncomfortable." Kara wrinkles her nose.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: (She have most likely not noticed. And I'm going to take a walk with my dog, brb. Feel free to fastforward so the others can act:P)
[20:22] Wolfbane: The ship lands and off the platform, you can see tantalizing white sand beaches and perfect waves. The air is dryer here and the smell of sea salt fills the air.
[20:31] Wolfbane: .
[20:40] Happy: Lucia grins and steps out onto the beach. "How is someone supposed to stay out of the water? It looks too enticing!"
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Back
[20:43] Wolfbane: He smiles back. "The razor sharks mostly. And in some areas, the current is actually acidic, but not here. There's supposed to be a cordoned off safe area for people to swim here though, mostly for visitors."
[20:45] Shadowcaller: (Err… Why were we here again? It felt like we were going to meet the scientist in the jungle or something. But I may be misstaken.)
[20:45] Shadowcaller: *mistaken
[20:46] Wolfbane: (Jungle on an Island, minor retcon, that's all. THis is just as everyone is getting off the ship, about to head inside)
[20:46] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Don't touch anything, it might eat your face." Kara remarks in a humeorous tone.
[20:51] Wolfbane: A human woman in a doctor's lab coat comes out from a nearby staircase that sinks into the plateform(you landed on top of the building). "May I help you?"
[20:53] Happy: "Not my face!" Lucia laughs.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "Better then your hands.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "
[20:57] Shadowcaller: Kara clears her throat "We are looking for an Alliea Laana." She says with a smile.
[20:57] Wolfbane: (We couldn't remember the name and it's not up, so we made one up <.<)
[20:57] Shadowcaller: (We?:P)
[20:58] Shadowcaller: Offering her hand.
[21:01] Wolfbane: The woman shakes it. "Dr. Livingstone, no relation. Nice to meet you. She's inside on a break, I'm sure she'll be glad to see you all. We don't get many visitors here."
[21:04] Shadowcaller: (Livingstone?:P) Kara dosen't withdraw her hand "Nice to meet you as well. It's a dangerous planet. But I know how you feel. Space can be lonely as well."
[21:09] Wolfbane: "Oh, I like it here, nice beaches when they're made safe." She says with a smile. She lets go of the hand and waves them closer. "Here, I'll let you all in."
[21:11] Shadowcaller: (And I guess they go inside.) "Well, looks like I'm not going to bath here at least." Kara comments, looking over the ocean.
[21:12] Wolfbane: (Also, it should be noted that as well as the purple scales tattooed onto his forehead, Trev is showing yellow ones in a line along his lower spine)
[21:13] Happy: Lucia smiles sadly, remembering how happy Kara had been on <holiday world whose name I've forgotten>
[21:18] Shadowcaller: *Moab
[21:19] Shadowcaller: (It was called.)
[21:20] Wolfbane: When they go in, there is a blast of cold air from the AC units. "Normally the others don't like it this cool, but it's necessary for their work and machinery." You'll find yourselves on a balcony above a lab, letting you look down on the various reserchers and projects. Most of them seem clusterd around something like a cryotube, fiddling with parts. Most of them are V'traani scholars and healers
[21:22] Happy: "What kind of work is done here?"
[21:24] Wolfbane: "Genetic modifications and bioengineering. Mostly for vaccines. The rest is…secret. Don't worry though, nothing dangerous is made here. We're trying to prevent bad things from happening."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "You make retro-virus?" Kara asks as she looks around, looking more at the machines then the researchers.
[21:30] Wolfbane: She shrugs. "A few." She looks over the shoulder of a male aid and points something out to him, speaking in medical jargon for a moment before continuing. "Laana is in the back, on the ground floor it's just a short walk from here."
[21:30] Shadowcaller: "Okay, thanks for the help." (And they go there I guess.)
[21:36] Wolfbane: Once there, you'll see a break room, with a few people inside, laying back on various pieces of furniture. The only V'traani in there is reading with an electric blanket covering her.
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "Alliena Laana?" Kara asks.
[21:40] Wolfbane: She looks up a bit puzzled and sets her book aside, standing. "An Umbrian? You're a long way from home, aren't you?"
[21:43] Shadowcaller: Kara seems a bit taken aback by Alliena recognizing where she's from (thought she shouldn't be so surprised.) "…yeah, I guess you Know Lucas? I'm his daughter Kara."
[21:43] Shadowcaller: *know
[21:45] *
Aegnor has left the conversation.
[21:45] * moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis#moc.liamtoh|iretnas_omis (Aegnor) has joined the conversation.
[21:45] Shadowcaller: .
[21:46] Wolfbane: "I know a Lucas yes, but he didn't wear a suit." She pulls on her labcoat. "He was rather nice, is something the matter?"
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, I was told to contact you about a certain vaccine that your making." Kara picks up a copy of the list from one of her suits many pockets and shows it to Alliena "Maybe you recognize some of these names?"
[21:54] Wolfbane: She looks them over. "No, I don't know any of them other than Augustus. He stopped by to load up on food and other supplies as well as the occasional…*item*. I made the point of seeing him when he landed. Odd little fellow though."
[21:56] Shadowcaller: "Well, according to my father, someone just tried to assassinate him. Possibly because of one of those 'items."
[22:02] Wolfbane: She shakes her head. "Nothing really worth killing over. The vaccine you mentioned had already been delivered here and we've shipped it out. It's likely being distributed as we speak."
[22:03] Happy: "What was the vaccine for?"
[22:05] Wolfbane: "A Cholera like strain that had been hitting a few of the frontier worlds pretty hard. Nothing too major."
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "I helped deliver it. He told me it was risky thought, I didn't even know what I was transporting until I arrived."
[22:09] Wolfbane: She nods. "It is, there are people who'd stand to profit if we stopped." She looks like she's about to say more as a strobe light pops out of the wall and starts flashing silently. What skin that isn't covered in scales pales a little.
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "…what was that?"
[22:12] Wolfbane: Trevenar decides to answer for the doctor as he slams a clip into his rifle. "Proximity alarms. Someone is trying to make an unauthorized landing here from orbit."
[22:14] Wolfbane: "If we're extremely lucky, it's just a rogue merchant vessel."
[22:14] Aegnor: 'God's sake, again?'
[22:14] Happy: "Right here? Not at the spaceport?"
[22:16] Wolfbane: The doc nods. "The spaceport has strong defenses. We *do* have enemies, mostly rival merc groups." Most of the doctors seem to be heading down lower as other people, guards, start loading their weapons.
[22:16] Wolfbane: brb, dinner
[22:20] Happy: "I'm starting to think we're being followed…"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Every time… We better head down in the safe room with the others. I don't like this."
[22:30] Shadowcaller: -
[22:34] Aegnor: I'm filled with drowsiness
[22:35] Shadowcaller: (Ah, night Murska I guess.)
[22:35] *
Aegnor has left the conversation.
[22:35] Wolfbane: back
[22:35] Shadowcaller:
[22:35] Wolfbane: And I guess we have to stop here
[22:36] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[22:36] Wolfbane: Could give Kara and Lucia a tour of the temple if you want. <.<
[22:36] Happy: sure
[22:37] Shadowcaller: Eh, I don't have much to do anyway
[22:41] Wolfbane: After the zoo, Trev leads you to a large building with a statue of a V'traani warrior caste out front (Nude, but then, all temple statues are). THe building is made from blocks of polished granite and the double doors are open. "This is Eclipsia's Temple, the V'traani Goddess of War and Fertility. The east wing is where guests and other visitors can stat the night, the west…is for other purposes
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "War and fertility? Seems like an odd combination."
[22:43] Wolfbane: "
[22:44] Wolfbane: He shrugs. "Both are important to us. In case you haven't noticed, there aren't very many males here." He walks onto the first few steps. "Want to come in?"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: Kara looks doubtful at first (or at least her body language does) but then says "Sure, why not?"
[22:54] Wolfbane: Inside, there are wooden benches lined with cushions and candles and torches are lit, lighting the place to show off the blue tapestries. Some show battlescenes while others show things that could possibly be more…intimate if you look close enough. The closes female priestess smiles to the group moves closer, covered by a tight fitting blue and gold robe that Lucia will recognize as one of the
[22:54] Wolfbane: Breeder Caste's. "Greetings."
[22:54] Wolfbane: closest*
[22:55] Wolfbane: Trevenar takes off his weapons and sets them on an altar near the door before kneeling in prayer.
[22:56] Shadowcaller: Kara who is raised in a world without religion just stands there a bit confused. "Greetings to you as well." She says, not really used to use that kind of words.
[22:57] Happy: (How would Lucia recognize that?)
[22:58] Wolfbane: (He told her what it was when he wore it and was under the effects of the heart)
[22:58] Happy: (ah, okay)
[23:01] Wolfbane: She glances at Trev and smiles before turning back to the others. "Are you here as guests, or are you here for our…services?"
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "No." Kara remarks rather quickly.
[23:01] Shadowcaller: And coldly. >.>
[23:02] Wolfbane: (aww…she doesn't even know what the services are….v.v)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Well, she got hit by the clue bat apparently:P)
[23:02] Wolfbane: (Sometimes church masses are called services. <.<)
[23:02] Wolfbane: (Even she might know that)
[23:04] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, but the goddess of fertility, naked statues, freaky V'traani customs, questions about the donations of her 'egg's…)
[23:04] Shadowcaller: (Not to mention those intimate battle scenes.)
[23:04] Wolfbane: Yay! Kara gains +1 wisdom for getting it all together! ^^
[23:08] Shadowcaller: (@)
[23:08] Happy: xD
[23:09] Happy: "Guests," Lucia says, her tone much more friendly.
[23:11] Wolfbane: The priestess looks a bit hurt at Kara's tone, but takes it well all things considering. "Very well, I'm sorry you aren't. I'm sure you'd have enjoyed it. If you ever wish otherwise, just ask." Trevenar stands and gives the female a kiss on the forehead before say what sounds like an apology in V'traani.
[23:11] Wolfbane: Her smile returns. "If you wish, I can show you around the Temple."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: Kara looks at Lucia.
[23:13] Happy: "We'd be honoured," Lucia says.
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "Sure." Kara replies after Lucia's agreement.
[23:16] Happy: Lucia will try to get a moment with Kara out of the hearing of the V'traani.
[23:17] Wolfbane: It's possible because at one point she and Trev move forward a bit as he starts asking her a few questions.
[23:18] Shadowcaller: Kara is keeping herself close to Lucia anyway.
[23:18] Happy: "Kara, you don't have to be so rude," Lucia whispers.
[23:20] Shadowcaller: Kara lowers her head, looking a bit embarrassed "…sorry, It's just that all this is a bit too much to me to take in at once." She whispers back.
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "I'm a bit uncomfortable with bodily things." She continues in the same tone, glancing at Trevenar and the Priestess.
[23:23] Happy: "Would you rather wait in the vestibule?"
[23:23] Happy: (bodily things like 'eating fruit'? :P )
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (She had already eaten, and she is a bit careful with what she eat when she comes to other planets, it's mostly a irrational fear of course.)
[23:25] Happy: (but she was still rude about it)
[23:26] Shadowcaller: (The fruits?)
[23:26] Happy: (yeah)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Not really… it was mostly because of the conversation.)
[23:27] Happy: (generally when you're invited into someone's culture, acting like you hate ever minute of being there is not considered polite behaviour)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (It is not.)
[23:28] Shadowcaller: Kara shakes her head "No it's okay, I'll try be polite from now."
[23:34] Wolfbane: Trevenar notices you two hanging abck and nods before continuing to keep the Priestess busy until you decide to join them.
[23:35] Shadowcaller: (@)
[23:35] Happy: Lucia smiles warmly at Kara, and they join the othes again.
[23:36] Shadowcaller: And so does Kara. Head still a bit lowered.
[23:39] Wolfbane: Trevenar says one final thing and the priestess gives him a smirk and what sounds like a throaty purr before turning around. "Most diplomats and celebrities choose to stay here in the East wing, the normal guest one, during their stay instead of the hotel. I think it's mostly to keep up appearences that they care, but this building is likely the safest here."
[23:39] Wolfbane: (Yes, he had been hitting on her to keep her busy. <.<)
[23:40] Shadowcaller: (If I ever had a second PC, I know what it would be:P)
[23:40] Wolfbane: ?
[23:41] Shadowcaller: (You'll see if it comes to that.)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (And Lucia should talk here.)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (@)
[23:43] Happy: "I'm not sure where we'll be staying. But I'm sure Trevenar will keep us safe. He's an excellent bodyguard."
[23:45] Wolfbane: She looks between Trev and Lucia before smiling. "I'm sure." She waves dismissively. "But really, the walls are thick, for several reasons, and there are plenty of supplies in case disaster strikes to last several weeks. A few of the diplomats also use the East wing, where the rooms are a bit nicer, but that's to be expected."
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Underneath her visor Kara narrows her eyebrows at the priestess, but dosen't say anything.
[23:47] Happy: "Disaster? I had heard there were dangerous life forms…"
[23:48] Wolfbane: "Oh, we stockpile it just in case a flood or a really bad storm, just natural thing that happen on all planets sometimes."
[23:48] Wolfbane: things*
[23:49] Shadowcaller: ('Then why live on a planet?' Kara thinks.)
[23:49] Happy: (random death in the life support system!)
[23:50] Happy: (have you ever read "Footfall", SC? By Larry Niven?)
[23:50] Shadowcaller: (Well, she is obviously taking sides.)
[23:50] Happy: (I know Wolfy did)
[23:51] Happy: (Aliens try to conquer earth, and some of them had lived all their lives aboard ship. When they get to earth, they are freaked out by weather.)
[23:51] Wolfbane: (heh. And Jungles)
[23:51] Happy: (and sky)
[23:51] Shadowcaller: (Just nuke it:P)
[23:51] Wolfbane: (They did worse)
[23:51] Happy: (they wanted to conquer it, not destroy it)
[23:52] Wolfbane: (Slammed a giant asteroid into the Indian Ocean)
[23:52] Happy: (but they only did that after their first assault failed to get earth to surrender)
[23:52] Wolfbane: (true)
[23:52] Happy: (they didn't want to. they wanted earth usable afterwards, and wanted humans to join their tribe.)
[23:53] Happy: (but that's what some of them thought… "Random death in the life support system!" when they first encountered storms.)
[23:54] Shadowcaller: (Well, at least they provide education on Umbra, and a few simulations. But yeah, some people on the station might have similar reactions.)
[23:56] Happy: "Ah, okay," Lucia says.
[23:57] Wolfbane: "Would you like to see one of the rooms?"
[23:58] Wolfbane: (And I'm surprised Lucia didn't catch her comment about how she's sure Trev is a good bodyguard. >.>)
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Sure." Kara replies.
[00:01] Happy: (I think Lucia's player missed that… she thinks Trev and lucia are lovers?)
[00:02] Wolfbane: She leads you to a door made of exotic reddish wood, polished and opens it, revealing a room completely decked out in blue cushions, silks, some furs from alien animals and a large bed.
[00:02] Shadowcaller: (Apperently, that's why Kara narrowed her eyebrows.)
[00:02] Wolfbane: (let me copy/paste)
[00:02] Shadowcaller: *apparently.)
[00:02] Wolfbane: (She more of implied that she may have)
[00:02] Wolfbane: Happy says (6:43 PM):
"I'm not sure where we'll be staying. But I'm sure Trevenar will keep us safe. He's an excellent bodyguard."
Wolfbane says (6:45 PM):
She looks between Trev and Lucia before smiling. "I'm sure." She waves dismissively. "But really,
[00:05] Shadowcaller: Kara looks around in the room, not exactly her style but she manages to be positive. "Looks nice."
[00:06] Happy: Lucia looks at the furs and fabrics. "That's a gorgeous blue."
[00:08] Wolfbane: She smiles. "It's all dyed and made here actually. Even the furs are native." She enters the room and opens up what had looked to be a support beam, showing a few bottles. "Local wine too. And to think the other rooms are better."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: Kara nods "It sounds great, but aren't planning to stay long sadly."
[00:12] Happy: "Do you have any local costume designers?"
[00:13] Wolfbane: She grins, showing her sharp white teeth. "Of course! What did you have in mind?"
[00:14] Happy: "I'm a performer. I'm always looking for new stage costumes."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: (Kara haven't needed to worry about clothes for a long time:P)
[00:15] Shadowcaller: (And she's boyish when it comes to clothes anyway.)
[00:17] Wolfbane: She gives a cheery smile. "We have a few extra ceremonial things you can try on if you want."
[00:19] Shadowcaller: "…I guess I be waiting here then?" Kara remarks, knowing that she wouldn't even be able to take off her suit here.
[00:25] Happy: "Oh, not right now. But I'd be interested in meeting some designers later for some custom work."
[00:26] Wolfbane: She nods. "Understandable, but to be honest, there isn't much cloth or feathers to them."
[00:27] Happy: (custom clothing has as much or little cloth as the order calls for :P )
[00:27] Wolfbane: =P
[00:27] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… Later…"
[00:32] Wolfbane: "There are a few other places in the temple, but from what Ta'lok said, I doubt you wish to see them."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: (@)
[00:34] Happy: (sorry… run out of things to say again)
[00:35] Shadowcaller: (Clearly something utterly random must happened
[00:35] Wolfbane: (One moment, have to just check over two powerpoints my brother made really quick)
[00:35] Shadowcaller: (The legendary powerpoints.)
[00:38] Wolfbane: (done)
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Kara dosen't say anything. She is afraid of sounding rude.
[00:40] Happy: (:P maybe she could say something polite?)
[00:41] Shadowcaller: (Well… I guess if Lucia don't say anything. She expects her to deal with these situations form now on really…) "No thanks."
[00:41] Shadowcaller: She replies shortly.
[00:44] Wolfbane: She smiles. "In that case, I think we're done here." She hasn't explained the stainless steel container that's near the bed though, and Trev is purposefully avoiding looking at it. "Any questions?"
[00:46] Shadowcaller: Kara looks at Lucia again for support "How many are staying here?"
[00:48] Wolfbane: "About a dozen foreign diplomats, and 20 local couples at the moment. There is room for at least three times that."
[00:51] Shadowcaller: "Anything special we should know? We are new on the planet after all."
[00:54] Happy: Lucia makes a note of it to ask Trev about later, figuring it's something that would bother Kara
[00:55] Wolfbane: It is. >.>
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (I already know what it is:P)
[00:56] Wolfbane: "Well, just be careful in general. Don't pet the stray wildlife and just try to have fun. But if you hear the klaxons, try to get into a strong building."
[00:57] Shadowcaller: "Err… Right." (yeah, come with names of beasts we obviously have no idea who they are:P)
[00:59] Shadowcaller: (Oh by the way, watch out for the xaguriox! Kthxbai.)
[01:00] Wolfbane: (I mean Klaxons as in alarms. <.<)
[01:00] Shadowcaller: (I only found a rock band when I searched for it.)
[01:01] Shadowcaller: (But maybe that is the signal… Rock music!)
[01:01] Wolfbane: =P
[01:01] Wolfbane: (Link:
[01:02] Wolfbane: The 4th one
[01:04] Shadowcaller: (I'm not sure what to say here either honestly.)
[01:05] Wolfbane: (That's probably about it unless you have something to say to Trev as they leave)
[01:07] Happy: Lucia will ask more questions about the temple when she's alone with him, if you want to go ahead and do an info dump here.
[01:07] Wolfbane: Go ahead and ask the questions. I don't mind
[01:07] Happy: (i was being lazy >.> )
[01:08] Wolfbane: =P
[01:09] Wolfbane: I don't have much in the way of an info dump other than the stainless steel container contains certain organs and has a DNA lock to only open to V'traani to keep from disgusting people. <.<
[01:11] Happy: and it's pretty much a sex temple?
[01:12] Wolfbane: In some ways, yes.
[01:12] Wolfbane: Mating is pretty special to them as you can imagine and should have a specially made place for it. >.>
[01:13] Wolfbane: At first, the Priestess thought you were more diplomats, that's why she asked about the services. <.<
[01:14] Happy: i thought it was males they wanted for mating though
[01:14] Wolfbane: It is, but as diplomats, they still offer for females.
[01:15] Shadowcaller: (Well, Kara would most likely die from that:P)
[01:15] Happy: (lesbian interspecies sex?)
[01:16] Wolfbane: No, there are males there too
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Kara figured it was something like that, or something else disgusting
[01:21] Wolfbane: Lucia now knows exactly what Trev's robes mean. <.<
[01:22] Happy: that he's a temple whore? ;)
[01:22] Shadowcaller:
[01:22] Wolfbane: Sometimes, yeah
[01:23] Wolfbane: He's kind of obligated to do so sometimes
[01:26] Happy: what if he refused?
[01:26] Shadowcaller: Burn the heretic!
[01:28] Wolfbane: He can basically choose when to do so as it needs to be when he's home, and as he sees it, he has no reason to say no. It's his culture. If he didn't want to though, they'd still take some "samples" from him for later.
[01:28] Wolfbane: You don't necessarily have to have sex to reproduce. >.>
[01:29] Happy: I know he thinks of it as a natural thing to do. but there have to be rebellious sorts who think differently
[01:29] Happy: and might not be willing to even share samples
[01:29] Shadowcaller: Burn the witch!
[01:30] Wolfbane: There are. And they simply don't reproduce. The others would feel it was unfortunate, but it's not like they can actually force them to do so.
[01:30] Wolfbane: They'd be slight outcasts if they didn't actually have a reason not to, but nothing really bad.
[01:32] Wolfbane: It'd be things like the rare odd look and possibly the occasional quip, but that's all
[01:36] Shadowcaller: It's a very strongly defined norm thought, but I don't get how they still can have families
[01:37] Wolfbane: The families are clans. The child goes to the mother's clan and the entire group takes care of them
[01:37] Happy: wouldn't it just be like the modern situation, where lots of people have parents who live in differnet places?
[01:38] Shadowcaller: Yeah, but every male would have like… 50 kids?
[01:38] Shadowcaller: 50 different mothers
[01:38] Wolfbane: Yes, something like that
[01:38] Wolfbane: Trev probably has 2-3 total now. >.>
[01:39] Wolfbane: 1 already born, 2 on the way
[01:39] Wolfbane: It'd make sense
[01:40] Wolfbane: hmm…
[01:40] Wolfbane: If you two still want to do more, he has to visit the armory and get something for Lucia anyways.
[01:40] Wolfbane: And the armory is in his clan's housing. >.>
[01:40] Shadowcaller: Sure…
[01:40] Wolfbane: Besides, it would likely come in use soon. >.>
[01:43] Wolfbane: Feel up to it Happy?
[01:44] Happy: Probably not tonight.
[01:44] Wolfbane: Okay
[01:45] Wolfbane: Did she keep Trev's pistol?
[01:46] Happy: I guess not, sicne she didn't have it when she was kidnapped
[01:46] Happy: though I suppose it could be on the ship.
[01:47] Wolfbane: Yeah, after the bugs, he would have told her to keep a hold of it, just in case.
[01:49] Happy: In which case, he'll probably chastise her for leaving it behind
[01:52] Shadowcaller: Back
[01:56] Wolfbane: .
[01:56] Wolfbane: Better?
[01:56] Shadowcaller: So what happens?
[01:58] Wolfbane: Right now, nothing I believe
[01:58] Wolfbane: Though, if you want, I can tell you what Trev is going to give Lucia
[01:59] Shadowcaller: Eh… sure
[01:59] Shadowcaller: Not sure what Kara is doing, staying at the room I guess.
[02:08] Shadowcaller: …
[02:08] Wolfbane: Waiting for Happy in case she doesn't want me to spoil the surprise. >.>
[02:08] Shadowcaller: Huh?
[02:09] Wolfbane: Can't you see her?
[02:09] Shadowcaller: I can
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Or have she written something?
[02:09] Shadowcaller: I can't see that
[02:09] Wolfbane: Don't want to spoil what he's going to give her unless she wants me to
[02:09] Wolfbane: She hasn't
[02:09] Shadowcaller: Okay
[02:10] Shadowcaller: When it doubt… do a barrel roll
[02:11] Wolfbane: =P
[02:13] Shadowcaller: But there isn't going to be anything else eh? Your just doing some solo thing?
[02:14] Wolfbane: I'm trying to think of something for Kara, but there doesn't seem to be anything she'd enjoy…
[02:14] Wolfbane: Unless you want to finish the zoo.
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Eh, not really nessecary. And why does it have to be something she enjoys?

[02:15] Wolfbane: There is something I want to add at the zoo though. <.<
[02:15] Shadowcaller: I doubt she would enjoy many things at jungel hell planet
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Is it another animal? Or something else?
[02:16] Happy: it should be something SC enjoys
[02:16] Happy: screw Kara
[02:16] Shadowcaller: Indeed^^
[02:16] Wolfbane: I doubt she'd like that, she*did* turn down the offer. :P
[02:17] Shadowcaller: *rolls eyes*
[02:17] Shadowcaller: My cat is not amused
[02:18] Wolfbane: During one of the Arctic exhibits, there is a cat like thing, basically a saber-tooth tiger who's fur shimmers, making it harder to see, she'll feel the music in the background of her mind grow stronger. >.>
[02:19] Shadowcaller: Oh >.> (also, Luna is the only *experienced* character I made, then again, she's very different from my usual characters. She isn't repressed in any way for example.)
[02:19] Shadowcaller: (She would ask what animal it was.)
[02:21] Shadowcaller: *kind of animal
[02:22] Wolfbane: The plaque says it's a Prism Tiger. A female one actually. It's the top predator so far in the far north. It sits down on it's haunches and seems to look straight into Kara's eyes. She'll feel the music get stronger, and she'll feel a bit of calm coming from it.
[02:24] Shadowcaller: She starts feeling a bit uncomfortable, the music wasn't really *naural* in her head. It spooked her a bit. She walks close to the glass, seeing if the tigress gaze if following her.
[02:26] Wolfbane: It does so and she'll sense that it's curious. It stands up and moves closer before setting it's massive paws on the glass, looking down at Kara. Trev doesn't do anything, confident that the glass will hold.
[02:27] Wolfbane: He does look a bit shocked though.
[02:28] Shadowcaller: Kara squirms a bit, involuntary moving away a bit from the glass.
[02:29] Wolfbane: It lets out a purring sound and continues to watch.
[02:29] Shadowcaller: (Poor gal have never seen an animal outside a zoo >.>)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Unless you count insects…
[02:30] Happy: (she liked the little critters on Moab)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: And those death maulers.)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Well, those were in a zoo right? And this isn't exactly a little critter >.>)
[02:30] Wolfbane: (He's going to correct her view of what is really a death mauler next. He had no idea what the spiders were)
[02:31] Wolfbane: No, the cat is roughly 12feet long and weighs 700lbs.
[02:32] Shadowcaller: Kara moves to the side, her fear going over to a fascination.
[02:32] Shadowcaller: She watches the cat with intrests.
[02:32] Wolfbane: "Kara, you should know, that cat eats people for a living. I don't know why it likes you, but be careful."
[02:33] Shadowcaller: (I have a cat here that that would weigh about… 3 kg?:P)
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "Likes me?" She sounds a bit confused, glacing at Trevenar "But the glass will hold right?"
[02:34] Wolfbane: "It will."
[02:35] Shadowcaller: (I mean… if they didn't build strong enough glass, I wouldn't have such an animal outside a pit.) "So what is there to worry about?" She looks back at the cat, moving a bit closer.
[02:35] Shadowcaller: (My cat is 100 % biologically possible however >.>)
[02:36] Wolfbane: heh
[02:36] Happy: (yes, let's all roleplay possible and boring stuff :P )
[02:37] Shadowcaller: (Happy… I GM fantasy.)
[02:37] Shadowcaller: (You think I care about that?:P)
[02:37] Happy: (then why do you complain? :P )
[02:37] Shadowcaller: (I didn't)
[02:37] Wolfbane: The cat's head follows her movements, it's 4 eyes watching closely.
[02:39] Shadowcaller: (4 eyes?! What kind of cat have 4 eyes? What advantage do the other two eyes give? Note, not complaning, just wondering the logic behind it.) Kara dares touch the glass, her heat is bumping quite fast right now.
[02:39] Wolfbane: (Wider field of vision)
[02:40] Wolfbane: (It also lets it gauge distances better since it can use 4 for perspective than just two)

[02:45] Wolfbane: Wolfbane says (9:39 PM):
(Wider field of vision)
Wolfbane says (9:40 PM):
(It also lets it gauge distances better since it can use 4 for perspective than just two)

[02:45] Wolfbane: She'll feel a question form in her mind, as if it's asking who she is.
[02:46] Shadowcaller: Kara she thinks. Just going along with it.
[02:47] Shadowcaller: I
[02:48] Shadowcaller: (Oh, the parasites had a hive mind, would that react to this?)
[02:49] Wolfbane: The cat tilt's it's head, trying to listen to something the others can't here. She'll get the feelling of approval and safety.
[02:49] Happy: (Kara has a parasite? O.o )
[02:49] Shadowcaller: (No,,,)
[02:49] Wolfbane: (Only slightly I think. It'd make it harder for her to be affec by it)
[02:49] Wolfbane: affected*
[02:50] Shadowcaller: Why can you hear me? How can you talk to me? She thinks back.
[02:51] Shadowcaller: Realizing this is a stupid question to a cat, she rethinks. Who are you?
[02:51] Wolfbane: It feels confused, like it doesn't know. As for the last question, she'll get the feeling of rage, adranaline, and joy of the hunt. It's rather primitive.
[02:55] Shadowcaller: Are you… pure?
[02:55] Shadowcaller: She thinks to it.
[02:55] Wolfbane: It feels confused again
[02:56] Shadowcaller: Do you feel trapped in that cage?
[02:57] Shadowcaller: She tries instead.
[02:58] Wolfbane: The confusion stays for a moment before it understands and she'll feel a bit of sadness, but also contentment. If Kara looks past it, she'll see a larger one appear, it's movements causing it's fur to ripple color.

The confusion stays for a moment before it understands and she'll feel a bit of sadness, but also contentment. If Kara looks past it, she'll see a larger one appear, it's movements causing it's fur to ripple color.

[03:02] Shadowcaller: She dosen't /You poor thing… is there anything I can do?/
[03:06] Wolfbane: She'll feel a second stream of the song pierce through, feeling inquisitive as well.
[03:08] Wolfbane: This one sounds less refined, with a stronger tempo
[03:12] Shadowcaller: /Who are you she asks yet again to the other cat.)
[03:12] Shadowcaller: u
[03:13] Shadowcaller: /
[03:14] Wolfbane: It also feels confused by the question, but she'll recieve the same answer as the other gave her, but stronger, forcing her to feel the emotions. This cat is almost twice as large as the other though, and as it gets closer, Trev starts reaching for his rifle, just in case.
[03:16] Shadowcaller: Kara gets confused when she feels the emotions, it's nothing she have really felt before, not in that way at least. /Why is this?/ She tries /what am I?/
[03:18] Wolfbane: They both give her confusion as a response.
[03:21] Shadowcaller: /You know the song?/
[03:22] Wolfbane: She gets the feeling they don't know what she's talking about.
[03:23] Shadowcaller: /You want something?/
[03:25] Wolfbane: She gets the feeling that they simply wished to investigate something new to them.
[03:28] Shadowcaller: /You can go back now. I'm not intresting./
[03:31] Shadowcaller: She tries to share her feelings and memories with them.
[03:32] Wolfbane: Their ears flick at her feelings, but memories don't seem to be able to be passed on. She'll feel their own curiousity get stronger.
[03:34] Shadowcaller: /Do you talk like this with other animals?/
[03:34] Shadowcaller: /Others, eachother, me./
[03:35] Wolfbane: She'll feel them feel sad for the other animals.
[03:36] Shadowcaller: /What do you think of two-legs. People?/
[03:37] Wolfbane: She'll feel a sudden flood of hate, anger, fury, and vengeance. Seems like they wish to kill them all.
[03:37] Shadowcaller: /Why?/ She asks, suddenly nervous once again.
[03:40] Wolfbane: She feels a sudden clear thought pound into her head. /They won't die./ It feels like it suddenly came from more than just the two cats, like thousands of smaller voices speaking up at once. Afterwards, the song calms back down a bit, back to only the two cats.
[03:41] Shadowcaller: (Ugh, do you read OOC at acro?)
[03:43] Happy: (yes )
[03:43] Shadowcaller: Kara moves along the glas again, trying to look like she is checking other things out while trying to get rid of that overwhelming feeling. /Why must they die?/ She dares to ask after some moments.
[03:44] Shadowcaller: ("If you do X I will attack you with my overpowered characters")
[03:46] Wolfbane: She doesn't get an answer.
[03:47] Shadowcaller: /Please, I do not understand. Which two legs must die? The snake ones? Every two leg?/
[03:48] Wolfbane: One of the cats glares at Trev and another V'traani who is wandering around. She'll feel the cat's anger towards them.
[03:49] Shadowcaller: Kara shifts position again. /What did they do?/
[03:51] Shadowcaller: (Hm, I want do to something in ffrp… either by doing a plot or doing something with the empire…)
[03:54] Wolfbane: She'll feel the overwhelming voice once again, this time much more powerful, as if more attention is being turned towards her. /They fight back./ This time when it subsides, Kara will have a pounding headache and the music feels drained.
[03:55] Shadowcaller: Kara have a moment of weakness and leans heavily against the glass.
[03:57] Shadowcaller: New oots o.O
[04:00] Shadowcaller: (No one notices that?:P)
[04:01] Wolfbane: Trev goes over and sets a hand on her shoulder, looking worried. "Are you okay?"
[04:02] Shadowcaller: "Headace…" Kara mumbles, trying to regain her balance.
[04:05] Wolfbane: He sets his arm under her's to help her up. "Come on, there's a bench near by you can rest on."
[04:06] Shadowcaller: She nods weakly and let's him help her over to the bench, keeping quiet.
[04:10] Shadowcaller: "Think I need to go back to the hotel…" (let's just recon that.)
[04:10] Wolfbane: ?
[04:10] Wolfbane: (Retcon what?)
[04:10] Shadowcaller: (Well, we were at the zoo before we got to the hotel.)
[04:10] Wolfbane: True
[04:10] Shadowcaller: (Or church/hotel.)
[04:11] Wolfbane: Okay, then I guess they head back and Trev gets them a room in the east wing. =P
[04:13] Shadowcaller: (Well, lets just say they went to the zoo after the hotel.) Kara crawls down in the closest bed, she dosen't really need sheets and don't use them often anyway so she dosen't remove any of the sheets or anything as she lay down.
[04:14] Wolfbane: "Did you get sick or something?"
[04:15] Shadowcaller: "Something like that…" (She might want to tell Lucia all about it later.) "Don't worry thought, my suit isn't breached. It's just… an magrain."
[04:21] Shadowcaller: (Um, so if any character messes with Xtheyeti's characters, they get a bunch of godkillers against them?)
[04:21] Wolfbane: (apparently)
[04:21] Shadowcaller: (I like that challenge…)
[04:21] Happy: (don't. he's annoying to rp with)
[04:21] Shadowcaller: (I was kidding:P)
[04:22] Wolfbane: (Yeah, he sent a random Yeti to hug Edijar when he was being depressed and talking to someone…)
[04:22] Shadowcaller: (A yeti?)
[04:22] Wolfbane: yes
[04:23] Wolfbane: He nods. "Good. If you need anything, just hit the button on the wall next to you, and the Priestess will come."
[04:24] Shadowcaller: (I perefere the old style yeti, the wendigo.)
[04:24] Wolfbane: (hehehe)
[04:24] Shadowcaller: (The one who's touch makes you a cannibal <.<)
[04:25] Wolfbane: (*points to the failed restaurant Wendi's in Acro.* I know. >.>)
[04:26] Shadowcaller: "Thanks." Kara replies shortly, how is the music in her head right now? (You had a wendigo there?:P)
[04:28] Wolfbane: (Yes, Wendi was short for Wendigo. The cook was one)
[04:29] Wolfbane: It's ragged, feeling strained
[04:29] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…)
[04:30] Shadowcaller: I guess she drifts off to a troubled sleep eventually.
[04:30] Wolfbane: Want to know what that voice was? <.<
[04:30] Shadowcaller: Sure…
[04:30] Wolfbane: The planet itself. Or at least something that's nearly as widespread. >.>
[04:30] Shadowcaller: Uh, okay
[04:31] Happy: wanting to murder all the V'tranni?
[04:31] Wolfbane: (It's what drives the animals into aggression towards visitors, especially V'traani, and causes them to evolve)
[04:32] Happy: (but didn't the V'tranni evolve there?)
[04:32] Wolfbane: (They were, but something went wrong with them, making the thing unable to control them)
[04:36] Shadowcaller: What was Lucia doing during all this time anyway?
[04:37] Happy: wandered off to look at something diffeerent? talkign to costume designers?
[04:37] Shadowcaller: Okay
[04:38] Shadowcaller: Well, Kara falls asleep and I guess thats it?
[04:39] Happy: yeah, it's awfully late to start anything else
[04:39] Shadowcaller: Thought she wouldn't fall asleep directly. But still
[04:39] Shadowcaller: Mhm
