Title: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 08:00

After your previous adventure you brought everyone to the tower to see if you can remove the slave collars.

After lots of work you are ready to give up when blanket just mentions

[speak char=Blanket]if you can't find a solution here you could always use the goblet of change.
Uh, you know the item that can bend reality to your will when you drink it when you desire something.
I mean sure I know it is only for emergencies as it takes a year to recharge[/speak]

Now knowing of a solution you go on and let Blanket fetch the goblet and you drink.
And the collars are history.

But you feel strange, why is the whole world growing..and what is that a kind of pressure in your back.

and then you forget everything you know about magic, but before you can worry much new knowledge streams into your head.

How to use a scimitar, new spells and a whole new way of casting. Suddenly you understand how the secrets of transformation works.


But before you can wonder more a small pixie comes bursting into the tower.

[speak char=Aura]Tony, am I glad that I found you. I would have completely missed your island if it weren't for the sudden burst of magic.
Please we need your help. The minotaurs ignore the old treaty, they started cutting our trees like mad. And they don't care if it might be inhabited or not. In fact I think they like it if they can cause suffering to a Dryad[/speak]

((For the record I don't know if I stick with this picture for Blanket. Chibi figures seemed a good idea last year..but maybe I change all to an a bit more realistic look))

Flexing her fingers a bit around the goblet in her hands from the sudden rush, the world growing larger and that strange feeling in her back and ears. Kira could almost feel them perk up atop her head, wait that wasn't right was it? A puzzling look crossed her face taking just a moment to notice a rush of senses fill her, how did she not notice all the smells around her?
"Blanket what exactly is that goblet supposed to do?" She spoke softly, feeling this strange feeling of something moving behind her, almost dropping the goblet as she spun around to see what it was. A tail!? Kira quickly set down the goblet, taking hold of the wiggling appendage, once more almost jumping from the feeling. Her heart skipped a beat this is what she had been questing for in the beginning, those hands quickly reached up to her ears. "This is great! I bet I look adorable!" Kira jumped up a bit turning and staring up at Blanket. "Am I adorable?" She giggled before her little reverie was interupted by the appearance of the pixie. "Hmm oh hello..."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 09:51

[speak char=Blanket]Yes you are adoreable. And the goblet is supposed to do whatever you want..on a subconscious base. So if you are not entirely sure what it is you want, it can have weird results[/speak]

[speak char=Aura]Sorry, if I interrupt at a bad time. But we really do need your help.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 09:57

Smiling and giving a look up to the pixie, "Well you aren't interupting so much, I just managed to get myself back here, I'd be willing to help, but well I'm not Tony...My name's Kira" She looks down sheepishly, "I'd still love to help all I can is there anything more you can tell me about the problem"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:01

[speak char=Aura]Are you sure you aren't Tony. I mean you are in Tonies tower and you just used some very powerful transformation magic to solve a trivial problem.
And Blanket seems to adore you.
But anyhow I can't really say much.
We were just living peacefully, when all of the sudden the minotaurs started cutting down the trees.
Of course we tried to stop them. I mean mostly the Dryads as those trees are their home, but a few of us tried to help.
But we can't really do much to stop determined Minotaurs.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:08

"Alright, If you can show me where I'll help you, but I have to restock up and deal with some minor issues from my last adventure before I can head out" She gives a small smile to the pixie."I do hope that's okay theres not much I can do at the current moment" She makes a few motions with her hands, "My magic doesn't seem to be quite as instant as it used to be, though this new knowledge is pretty nice"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:14

[speak char=Aura]IF we have to travel along, Mogtown lies on our way. So I guess you can restock there. [/speak]


[speak char=Blanket] So you have to leave again. And you only just arrived[/speak]

Blanket gives you a hug

[speak char=Blanket] Go and save the day. But promise you come back soon[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:29

Giving a hug to Blanket before looking to the pixie, "Alright, though I still have to prepare spells, deal with a probably at thie point slightly angry drow, and make sure the bugbears's are all set to head home, as well as the princess, well I guess I can escort her home after I deal with this" She gives a small sigh, "Only a few loose ends to deal with." Giving a small smile looking to Blanket could you grab me a blank book and a quill I need to get this knowledge on paper before I can prepare"
Turning back over to the pixie, "Until we can leave feel free to look around I know this is urgent but I need to get this done" She blinks for a moment, "Oh Oni...I need to check on her!" Giving another quick smile to the pixie before moving to see her eidolon.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:36

You can find Oni in the entrance hall with all the Bugbears.

And she does look confused.

((And as I'm very nice you can still play her. That should give you some extra muscle for a while))

[speak char=Bugbear]you took quite some time to get our collars removed. But you did it. Thanks for that. But I think it is time for us to go home and make sure the Drow who took my place is getting what he deserves[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:54

Oni blinked looking down at what was her summoner, "You're shorter, and almost like me..."
Kira grinned and nodded looking to the bugbears, "Alright best of luck to you, and you're welcome" She grins moving and to take the book from Blanket starting to write down the spells on her mind.
Once finished she started to get to work preparing the spells for the day taking a seat and leafing through all the pages she'd just filled. "Hmm I'll need this and this...and two of these"

Oni as curious as ever looked on watching her former master get to work with the spells tail swishing back and forth behind her.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 10:59

((a list of the actual prepared spells would help))

The pixie impatiently walks from one end of the desk to the other before turning around and walking back all the time while you prepare.

The honorable Michelle of Legstone seemingly doesn't really know what to do and just sits in a corner.

Meanwhile Blanket plays catch with the little dragons.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:04

(( 0:Arcane markx2, Detect magic x2, Ghost Sound
1: Reduce Person, Shocking Grasp x3, Obscuring Mist, Color Spray
2: Web, Mirror Image, Frigid Touch, Invisibility was actually just about to edit that into the post))

Kira sits back up once she is prepared looking to the princess, "Would you mind staying here for a bit while I help out this lovely pixie, I'd hate to try and have you head home by yourself." She smiles looking to the impatient pixie, "Almost done"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:14

[speak char=Michelle of Legstone]But couldn't you just escort me home while you are on your way to the shadow forest to help this pixie? Maybe we could even speed your journey up by lending you one of our river boats[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:25

"Oh well yes then that would be lovely thank you" She gives a smile before hoisting up the haversack, "Now for this one I would like a bit of privacy so I'm going to the bedroom, please make yourself comfy I will try not to be too long" She smiles and moves up the staircase making sure to bring her spellbook with her. Once along in the bedroom she set down the haversack opening it up to look down at the drow, "Alright we're safe and sound but I need you to trust me for this, I'm going to ungag you but to get you out of there I'll need to shrink you so you can fit, if you haven't noticed I'm a bit different, and I can't quite grow the bag again alright?" Reaching in to remove the gag from the drows mouth.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:35

[speak char=Marisa]Finally. Do you have any idea how uncomfortable it is to be put into a bag tied like this? Just hurry and free me. We can talk about how yu can make things up to me afterwards.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:48

"Alright, just relax" She motions casting reduce person  on the drow before reaching in and pulling her out of the haversack, setting her down in front of her. "There we go, now I need to be sure you won't be lashing out at me, I mean not that you have your gear on you  I just have to be sure. Also as for making it up to you, I brought you to the tower of Antonia the transmuter, I think thats a start"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 11:55

[speak char=Marisa]I promise I won't attack you. Now can you untie me?
Oh and if I heard things correctly while I was in the bag. This is on an island that can not be found without a map.
This would make a good home for my people.
If you would allow us to settle here, we would be save.
And there would actually be no reason for us to control the rulers f the area.
And if you say yes, that could actually convince me to help you getting the princess home, without any need for you to proof that you have the real princess[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:03

"That sounds reasonable" She reaches down starting to untie her handiwork, "Yes you either require a map or you land her by chance. You're not too mad about being tricked like that? I mean if it's any consolation you were very sexy all small and tied up before I had to make my escape." She speaks smiling at the drow that for now was around her size. "And what will you do if you and the drow stay here?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:09

[speak char=Marisa] No I'm not too ticked. Maybe my ego is slightly wounded as I was hoping we could go along better.
But for the matter at hand. We would create a new village on this island And hopefully live in peace. Of course as we would live here, we would also be free guards in case the Bugbears would decide that they want this tower.
But to sweeten the deal..My sister is not just a capable cleric..she does know how to enchant weapons.
Maybe you thought about getting a bit of extras for the great swords of your Eidolon?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:17

"That would be great but at the current moment she's not my eidolon anymore, she's free to choose do as she wishes." Kira smiles and shrugs lightly, "Enchanting would be wonderful, I'd just hope you and the bugbears can get along at least a bit peacefully for now. Though as for you and me.." She smirks moving to pull the drow a bit closer to her, "I do hope we can get along better, I promise I won't trick you like I did again, I just hope the collars can only be for playtime and not a need to control each other"
Taking a step back to let the drow dress herself, "I mean it would be wonderful to teach each other some magic wouldn't it?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:27

[speak char=Marisa]I doubt that you can teach me much. At least in the way of magic or in a fair fight. But maybe I can learn a few dirty tricks from you.
And maybe we can find out how you like to get tied up.
I mean your form might be different, but you are still cute.[/speak]

After Marisa shook her hands and feet a bit to get the blood flow again, she gets dressed

[speak char=Marisa]Okay, come on, we have a barons daughter to return.

Oh and you better explain to her that I'm no longer an enemy. She might not feel too comfortable around her kidnapper and enslaver[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:39

"That may be fun, though remember I'm not all about dirty tricks, I'm just willing to use them when I need to" She giggles moving to head downstairs and over the the princess.
"Alright things are all worked out, I hope it isn't too disconcerting princess but the drow is going to be coming with us again, she can help prove that you are indeed yourself, as well as offer a little bit of extra protection." Kira says softly reaching out to put a hand on the girl's arm comfortingly, "If you get uncomfortable just let me know alright. This is just so things will go even smoother"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 12:48

[speak char=Aura]So can we go already? there are trees to save[/speak]

[speak char=Marisa]And maybe Drow to contact who would like to find a place without an insane ruler. And if we can bully a few Minotaurs on the way, so much better[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Feb 2013 at 21:27

"Yes we can go, just need to make sure to stop at the town on the way so I can get a proper weapon, sized for well me, I'm not the best when it comes to fisticuffs" With that Kira takes a moment to gather what she needs, making sure the black dragons are all set and heads off with the rest of the party dragging Oni along with her.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Feb 2013 at 21:45

As you go to the shore you realize that there is no boat left for you.

But before you can even wonder what to do now Blanket catches up with you.

[speak char=Blanket]You forgot to take the boat with you[/speak]

She has a small toy in her hand, but when she puts it into the water it quickly grows to full size.

[speak char=Blanket]Have a nice trip[/speak]

the actual trip to Mogtown goes without any special event. But before you dock you see Marisa putting on a ring and suddenly her skin color changes to white.
[speak char=Marisa]I think I will cause less trouble this way[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Feb 2013 at 07:21

"That is rather handy" Kira smile looking about the town before she started to look about for a blacksmith, "Now to find a nice shop to purchase a better fitting weapon." She grins holding up her falcata, "I wonder if I can get a good price for this at least."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Feb 2013 at 17:53

And so you go and lock for a smith that has a halfling sized scimitar.

Which turns out to be harder than one would think unless you are willing to wait to be made for you.

But finally you find one who has a scimitar in your size, even if it is not a masterwork one. And the smith seems to be even willing to take your falcata

[speak char=person]Strange weapon, I don't know if I can sell it, but it seems to be of fine craftmanship. tell you what, I give you 150gp for it and the scimitar[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 12. Feb 2013 at 13:50

"That sounds quite reasonable thank you!" She smiles handing over the masterwork blade for the scimitar in her size as well as her gold. "Thank you again!" Kira gives a small smile before looking to the others, "I think I'm all set then." Moving from the stall to take a few practice swings before sheathing the blade.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 12. Feb 2013 at 18:34

Having Michelle along it is no problem getting into Castle Legstone.

And it doesn't really take long before you are in front of the Baron and Michelles double

((There isn't a picture ready for the baron, but it will appear eventually))

[speak char=Baron of Legstone]What is this?[/speak]


Marisa takes off her ring
[speak char=Marisa]Allow me to explain. There was a small misunderstanding and my man thought they were supposed to replace your daughter when they were supposed to return her. Unfortunately I wasn't with them at the time to prevent the  mistake.
Tinaul, take of your disguise ring and come over here.

NOW![/speak]

The other Michelle takes of a ring and turns back into a drow walking over to you

[speak char=Baron of Legstone]What the hell is going on here?[/speak]

[speak char=Michelle of Legstone]I think I can explain. The drow had some complicated plan that involved replacing me, and having a bunch of slaves working for them.
But then Kira pretended to get caught and freed all the slaves. Kira is the small cat girl..only that she wasn't that small or a cat when she get caught.
And I'm pretty sure that the Pixie has called her Tony.
Anyway after we were free she has made some sort of deal with the Drow leader here, I don't know the details.
But now she has to help some Dryads and Pixies, and she lost already so much time bringing me home, we should lend her one of our boats so she can travel up the river faster[/speak]


The baron looks even more confused then before but ou get the boat while Michelle stays in the castle to explain the whole thing again with more details.

Marisa sends her man back to base camp
[speak char=Marisa]I don't suppose you want to give me your map, so I can lead my people to your island right now?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 17. Feb 2013 at 09:10

"I would prefer to hang onto the map, I was thinking we could lead them back after, defeat the minotaurs quicker and that way nobody will get lost going back" Kira smiles looking up at the drow.  "It shouldn't take us too long, with this strong a group"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 17. Feb 2013 at 09:19

[speak char=Marisa]I thought you would say that. Still I had to try. So lets go, and hope that we don't have to venture to deep into the forest.[/speak]

Marisa jumps on board of your river boat.
You can see that the baron has given you a fine ship. Complete with crew even.
With 8 people on row duty this ship should be able to move upstream fast enough.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 17. Feb 2013 at 23:02

"Yep but I'm sure our pixie friend would be able to help us navigate if anything" Kira positions herself on the boat taking out her spellbook to look over things once more. "Marisa do you have a spellbook I might browse through while we are traveling?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 18. Feb 2013 at 18:47

[speak char=Marisa]Indeed I have. You might remember that we only camped back before you kidnapped me, because I needed a rest so I could prepare spells again. I think traveling on boat gives me a nice chance to do so.
And after that you can have a look at my spell book, if you promise that I can have a look at the books in Antonias tower[/speak]


Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 24. Feb 2013 at 05:21

"Sure I can let you do that, got to make up for stealing you away somehow, though I'd only ask you to ask me before you take one out of the tower" She gives a smile flipping through what she'd wrote down in her book already.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 24. Feb 2013 at 08:24

[speak char=Marisa]Sounds like we have a deal[/speak]


When you skim through Marisas spellbook you realize that it is nothing that you couldn't have found in the tower..but at least it gives you a good way to measure her power

Kira smiles and sits down getting to copying any spells she missed when she first prepared them. "Ah this is great though I doubt I could cast some of these"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 24. Feb 2013 at 22:46

[speak char=Marisa]You will get there eventually. I did not get to where I am overnight either. And I think I might also be able to teach you a trick or two about fighting with your new scimitar[/speak]


But unfortunately the trip did not take long enough for you to scribe down spells and have some practice fights.


And so soon enough you stand at the entrance of the forest

[speak char=Marisa]I haven't thought that I would get back here so soon[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 24. Feb 2013 at 22:58

"Well it won't have to  be too long just got to rough up some rude minotaurs" Kira smiles up at Marisa then looks over to the pixie, "Lead the way and we'll deal with these baddies!"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 25. Feb 2013 at 18:04

As you venture into the forest it only takes you minutes before you hear the sound of axes.
And with that you don't even need help of the pixie to find the Minotaurs.

Watching from some distance you can easily see a dozen minotaurs working on the trees. While 5 others are busy carrying one of the recently felled trees away.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 01. Mar 2013 at 21:57

"Well if anything we can try diplomacy first" Kira grins moving forward towards one of the closer minotaurs giving a nice smile. "Hello there! Hope I'm not interupting too much but I was walking by and wondering why you guys are chopping down all these trees."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 01. Mar 2013 at 22:00

[speak char=Minotaur]That is simple, we need the wood to fortify our village.
So we have sufficient protection when the giants try to raid it[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 02. Mar 2013 at 08:32

"What about the creatures that live here or are tied to the forest you could be severely hurting or killing some of them, is there no other place you can gather fortifications?" Kira looks up at the minotaur trying to keep on that friendly smile in her mind cursing how they couldn't be just mean evil minotaurs.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 02. Mar 2013 at 08:39

[speak char=Minotaur]This is the forest. So this is where we can get wood.
And what do I care about lesser creatures.
The important thing is our safety[/speak]


Looking around you can see that they must have chopped enough trees to build a palisade around a huge city.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 02. Mar 2013 at 08:45

Taking a look around, "You've taken a lot of trees already it seems, and why would the giants attack you?" She seems to shrug off that lesser creatures mark, that is merely one reason to not like these guys.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 02. Mar 2013 at 08:48

[speak char=Minotaur]Enough, this isn't even half the wood we need to build a proper maze around our village.
And the giants have roamed the plains and raided villages for some time now.
So it is not a question if they will attack us, but how much time we have to prepare for the onslaught[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Mar 2013 at 08:34

"But won't the giants just crash through a maze of wood, it would render it useless, as strong as these trees may be one would think you'd need something like stone"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Mar 2013 at 08:37

[speak char=Minotaur]The giants aren't that big. Maybe a head taller than we are, so strong trees should do just fine.
Besides, where would we get that much stone from?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Mar 2013 at 08:56

"If I were to go deal with the giants and get them from raiding would it stop you from taking all these trees?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:02

[speak char=Minotaur]Yes, if you could get rid of the giants, we wouldn't need the maze.
But how can a little pipsqueak like you hope to defeat giants?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:15

"I'll ignore that, and leave that up to me, just keep from taking down anymore trees and I'll get your giant problem all sorted out" Kira smiles looking up at the minotaur, "Just point me in the direction of where they're set up and I"ll be on my way"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:23

[speak char=Minotaur]We stop chopping trees when we are convinced that the problem is solved, and not before.
Also, they are roaming the plains wandering from village to raid to village.
So they must be somewhere in that direction.
Just look for path of destruction.[/speak]

[speak char=Marisa]How helpful. Guess we are on our own in finding the giants. At least they should be big enough to be easy to spot[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:26

Giving a small sigh and looking to her group, "Well on our way then, yea at least they should be somewhat easy to spot"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:33

[speak char=Aura]I stay here, and try to delay the Minotaurs a bit. Good luck with the giants[/speak]



Walking to the plains is of course easy.
But from your current point you can't see any trace of giants. So they probably aren't All that close.

[speak char=Marisa]So what now?
Walking east wards until we can see them?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:35

"That would be the case, I don't have anything that could increase how fast we'd move and there is little to go on aside from look for the destruction"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Mar 2013 at 09:45

As you didn't have a better plan you walk for several hours until night falls.

[speak char=Marisa]Finally, at least now I can see properly.
hey we aren't too far from a village. We could ask them for directions. [/speak]

Once in the village you notice that it is mostly deserted.
But finally you see someone with a fully loaded ox cart.

[speak char=person]The giants? About 2 days march in that direction.
That is why we are leaving our village[/speak]

"Two days doesn't seem to bad, well to have to run into them. We could rest up for now then I should be able to prepare us all some mounts to make this trip faster"

[speak char=Marisa]Or we could use the better visibility of the night, and march a few more hours and rest when the sun comes up.

Of course when you really want to rest now, I could take the opportunity and see if the villagers left anything of value behind[/speak]

"Oh yea how could I forget you guys enjoy the nighttime don't you...I'm sure we could scrounge a bit for things we need then get a bit more distance in." Kira looks about curiously, "Don't want to be robbing people but if it will help I think we'll be fine"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 14. Apr 2013 at 08:20

[speak char=Marisa]I don't really think there will be much of help for us here. If it is easy to transport the villagers probably took it with them.
It would just have given me something to do while you rest[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 14. Apr 2013 at 08:26

"Oh alright then let us continue I guess I can keep going until I get tired" She smiles getting set to continue on her way.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 14. Apr 2013 at 08:33

And so you march on.
The sun goes down and you have a nice going in the moonlight for a time.

A few hours later the sky changes color again, and then finally the sun comes up shining into your faces
[speak char=Marisa]Argh, stupid sun.
Why do you guys even keep that thing around.
Always that stupid fucking blinding light[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 14. Apr 2013 at 09:00

"I don't think we have much choice with it" Moving to set up camp for them. "But we can sleep for now" Kira yawns as she sets up her tent.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 14. Apr 2013 at 09:09

[speak char=Marisa]Ah yes, lesser races do need sleep.
Don't worry, I will stand watch[/speak]


And so you can get some well deserved sleep, under the guard of a vigilante Drowess, who can protect you from any danger coming from 3 directions of the compass.
(She can't see much coming from the side the sun is)

But luckily there is no attack and so you can wake up well rested shortly after noon.

"Mmmm thank you for keeping watch, don't you have to at least meditate or something to get your spells back?" Going about the time preparing her spells for the day keeping what she had yesterday except replacing Web with Mount, Communal, which she will proceed to cast once they have packed up everything.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 14. Apr 2013 at 09:32

[speak char=Marisa]I would need to meditate to prepare new spells, but luckily I hadn't cast anything but a cantrip yesterday. So I'm good[/speak]

Using your summoned horses you can travel a bit faster for a while.

And so as the day gets close to its end again, you finally see what looks like a group of wandering giants.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 14. Apr 2013 at 10:10

"Shall we creep up closer to see what they're up to aside from just lumbering along?" She moves forward once the mounts vanish trying to stay out of sight of the giants when they get closer.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 14. Apr 2013 at 12:19

[speak char=Marisa]Sounds like a good course of action.[/speak]

And so you get closer to the giants on foot.

You haven't even closed to half the distance when the giants stop their marching and seem to prepare to camp for the night.

Building a nice camp fire out of a few smaller trees.

This at least makes it easier for you to catch up.

And so finally you are close enough to see and hear what they are doing.

And what they are doing looks suspiciously like preparing food.

Some of the younger giants stand in a group, boasting about their great hunting skills, while drinking ale from some mugs that do suspiciously look like they have been made out of human skulls.

"Well those definitely look like a peaceful sort I can talk out of attacking a bunch of minotaurs, though they don't looked organized..."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 06. Jul 2013 at 12:38

[speak char=Marissa]As far as I know hill giants aren't particular organized.
The leader is normally the strongest of them.
Also they only respect physical strength,
probably because they are too stupid
to understand what magic could do to them.
So if you want to talk to them, remember
that they will think off themselves as far superior to small beings like us.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 09. Jul 2013 at 23:32

"Well I'd considered turning into a Giant briefly to go talk to them but that maybe a little out of my grasp right now...so the only other idea I could think of would be enlarging you to try and talk to them see what their plans are." She looks up at the drow smiling lightly, "If I were to try and enlarge myself I'd end up being your height and that wouldn't help anything."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 10. Jul 2013 at 19:59

[speak char=Marisa]Hm, I guess I could alter my shape enough to look like a hill giant.
But if I look like one of them, it might look odd if I ask them what they plan.
And if I keep looking like myself just bigger, well most non Drows really don't like us.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 04. Aug 2013 at 09:49

"Would you be able to charm them and then I'll talk to them once they don't want to eat our flesh and bones" She pondered lightly reaching out to cast Enlarge person on the drow just in case. "Also they might be more receptive with you being their size anyway."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 04. Aug 2013 at 09:54

[speak char=Marisa]I haven't prepared a charm person spell. Of course I could still use Darkstroke to cast it anyway. But that would mean that I'm limited to the prepared spells for the rest of the day.
Just something to remember.
Also any ideas who to get, or is a random giant good enough for now?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 04. Aug 2013 at 10:05

"Whichever one seems like their leader, I'd say the biggest one." Kira thinks to herself for a moment preparing to kindly ask the giants to rampage in a different direction, with proof that they were going to do so. "We're going to need to convince them to go away from the minotaurs and the forest, and get proof that they will do so"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 04. Aug 2013 at 18:53

After a while Marisa comes back with a giantess.
As the giant sees you she goes down to a knee and starts petting you like you were a dog.

[speak char=Giantess]Aww, she is a cute one. What is her name?[/speak]

[speak char=Marisa]Kira.

Kira, this is Ezri.
She is not in charge of the giants, but seemingly she is the only one there who can speak anything but their own language.[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 09. Aug 2013 at 02:32

She blinks a bit at the size of the woman then how she was pet, those ears atop her head twitching lightly. "Ohh..hi Ezri, did she tell you why we're here?" Kira gives a smile, "Or should I start some negotiations"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 09. Aug 2013 at 18:39

[speak char=giantess name=Ezri]Until a few seconds ago I thought it possible that the dark skinned one just wanted to make out with me.
But I begin to think that is not quite what is going on.
So what is it?
Do you want to hire me to smash someone for you?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 06:51

"Recruit you?" She paused letting herself be lost in thought of walking around with the giantess before shaking her head of that little reverie. "Well that might come after business, I was curious what you and the other giants plans are"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 06:55

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]Our plan?
We wander from settlement to settlement and take what we need to live.
What else can we do, after we were driven from our home by evil shadows?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 06:57

She looked even more curious now, "Evil Shadows?" Kira tapped her chin a bit, "Can you tell me more about them, I might be able to help"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 07:05

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]Not much.
We were just in our village minding our business, when suddenly the shadows started acting up.
They randomly attacked us, but when we tried to hit back, all we could damage was the stone the shadows were on.
You can't touch a shadow, and so we had no choice but to go.

But you seem to think you can help, do you know the secret of hurting a shadow?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 07:25

"Yes actually magical force effects can harm them or enchanted weapons allow you to hurt them" She grins  looking proud of herself, "A few spells I can cast will let me do that"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 07:35

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]So, you can do something to my sword, so I can kill an evil shadow?
Great, lets go and stomp them[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 07:50

Kira paused shaking her head lightly, "I can't do something to your sword no, I have a spell that could harm them but I can't enchant weapons" She gave a look to Marisa, "Do you have anything that would make her weapon ghost touch, or well ours in general?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 07:56

[speak char=Marisa]I know how to enchant a weapon in general, but that wouldn't be much help against an incorporeal being.
Most incorporeal beings are undeads, and normally Nephilia deals with that kind of stuff[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 08:00

"Meaning if we wanted to make this easier we'd have to go and gather them, though I do believe with Ezri here we'd have proof to the minotaurs that the giants won't be attacking them." She ponders stroking her chin lightly, "Ezri would you like to come with us to get some more people who would help us get rid of those shadows?"

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 08:07

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]Ah, so you know that you can't deal with the shadows because you are so puny.
I would be happy to protect you, while you gather your big warriors, who can smash the shadows[/speak]

Marisa pulls you to a side
[speak char=Marisa]I don't think we have any proof that the won't attack the minotaurs. In fact I think if we don't do something they will eventually get to their village.
And with both sides being thick headed brutes, that could lead to a massacre[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 08:34

Kira gave a small sigh, "And here I'd hoped just a bit of walking would make this all work out." She turned back to Ezri looking up at her, "Come on show me to these shadows, I'll show you just cause I may be small doesn't mean I can't beat them up."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 08:45

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]Hah, you have guts, puny one. I like that.
Then lets go, we might need a few days to reach the mountains.[/speak]

And Ezri starts walking.

[speak char=Marisa]Oh great. I hope she stays friendly once the charm person spell runs out[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 09:44

"Well if anything once it wears off she is by herself so it's less dangerous to negotiate." Kira smiled grinning up at Erzi, "A few days is alright, so tell me abit about yourself if that would be alright."

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 09:56

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]What do you want to know?
I mean you know that my name is Ezri, and that I'm part of a giant tribe
which has been driven from home by evil shadows.
[/speak]

[speak char=Marisa name=Marisa]And what do you do for a living?[/speak]

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]I don't understand the question.
I hunt my food.
Why is there another way?[/speak]

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Chibikitty on 11. Aug 2013 at 10:57

"There is work, planting, farming or even blacksmithing." She pipes up looking up at the giantess curiously, "There has to be more to you then your name, like what kind of things do you like." Kira figured she might as well make small talk while they walked.

Title: Re: Kira Adventures: Where shadows dwell
Post by Elana on 11. Aug 2013 at 11:01

[speak char=Giantess name=Ezri]What is farming?
And liking, I do like throwing rocks. I'm really good at it too. I can hita sheep from 300 feet away.
They tend to go splat when they are hit though[/speak]
