*looks at Zephy and begins walking to his bag, grabbing two stones. He managed to work on the stones so that they give lots of spark, starting a fire on the first try. Never leaves home without it* I wonder if Nova will eat the stew... I mean, he hasn't had it in a long time.. *laughs* What about you? You sick of it? *walks to the pile of sticks and begins tapping the rocks, shower of sparks spraying from it, aimed at the sticks*

From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*stares at you but then smirks* I wonder if I can turn you into a pot. *snickers*

*digs in his bag and pulls out his magickbook, the one that was given to him from Sorceress of Death* Ok...

Hey.. what a rip off.. that incantation doesn't rhy-- *gets interrupted as a pot appears, hanging from the tripod over the fire* Er.. it worked, not complaining! *smirks*

From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*thinks some more* green beans... macaroni... and the most important ingredient... Ham! *smiles and walks to a river nearby, getting a whole bucketful of water, stepping back to the pot, pouring it in* There.... that was quick, eh?

*sits down on the log and sighs, waiting for the water to boil* How you been, Zephy?

13 of 182 ... Hmm
From: merloch

::a soft shimmering in the woods is seen...then Merloch steps out, faded blue eyes gazing around, carrying an odd , thick, book::

From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

Hey there Merloch! *looks at the pot, distracted for a short minute, but looks back to Merloch noticing something in his hands* What's that?

From: merloch

From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

What do you mean.. Shadows? *tilts her head curiously, looking at Merloch*

From: merloch

Oh...nothing. Trying to sort some memories, is all..

From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*walks to his bag and pulls out a wet paper bag, sets it on the ground and unwraps it, carrots and greenbeans are inside it* Zephy.. can you chop these for me?

*stands walking to the pot, opening a plastic bag, pouring the macaroni in it*

::softly:: Gem...?

From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Hmm... *turns to Gem and nods* sure, I'll do it *takes out a regular steel dagger, walking over to the bag of vegetables, picking up a carrot and starts cutting it into the stew pot*

26 of 182 ... *turns to Merloch*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*staring at him quietly* Yeah? What's wrong?...

27 of 182 ... ::looks around, then whispers::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

Did he bring her back..?

28 of 182 ... *blinks*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*whispers* Did who bring who back?

29 of 182 ... *ears twitch slightly, catching all the whispering, but continues
From: Zephyr_Xternal

::whispers to himself underbreath:: damn pollen. gotsa run before ah gets caught! ::begins crawling away::

31 of 182 ... ::pensively::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

::quietly:: Jauxzer..did he bring Camellia back..?

32 of 182 ... *looks quickly in the direction of the sneeze,
From: Zephyr_Xternal

33 of 182 ... ::ears twitch, hearing the words clearly, as if prepared::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

Jauxzer?! ::eyes snap around to where Jauxzer was::

34 of 182 ... Ah guess ah be caught...
From: Jauxzer
Date: May 21 1999

::stands, straightening his robe with a nod:: How be you, Merloch?

35 of 182 ... Who's Camellia?
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*looks back to the pot and continues stirring* I don't know.. I didn't listen to your conversation with Jauxzer that day.. *looks to the sneeze*

36 of 182 ... ::holds up his book::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

Good..Working on projects... Have you brought them back..?

37 of 182 ... ::grins::
From: Jauxzer
Date: May 21 1999

::shakes head:: Not yet, ah be waiting for ya to be here when they are brought back.

38 of 182 ... *finishes with the vegetables, wipes the blade of her dagger off
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

with the end of her shirt and places it back where it came from. Then looks at Merloch, Gem, and Jauxer, she is obviously confused*

39 of 182 ... *smirks at Zephy*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

Don't be looking at me like that.. I'm confused too... *takes the vegetables Thanks.. *pours them into the pot, a nice smell coming from the broth*

40 of 182 ... ::ponders::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

How about now..? Seem's as good a place as any?

41 of 182 ... eh.. *shrugs* you're welcome.
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Gem.. who's the guy talking to Merloch?

42 of 182 ... Ah.. no.
From: Jauxzer
Date: May 21 1999

::blushes:: Ah believe we need to go to an enclosed area... they will be ::blushes furiously:: naked, when ah bring them to this lifetime..

43 of 182 ... *continues stirring*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*whispering to Zephy* That's Jauxzer... Can you believe that's Draegon's brother? He's so.. small... *smirks and looks back to the pot, still stirring*

44 of 182 ... ::raises a brow:: Indeed...
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

Indubitably a problem..Follow me?

45 of 182 ... Brother? *blinks, looking at Gem*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Draegon has a brother?!? *gives you a look of complete disbelief*

46 of 182 ... *snickers at Zephy*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*whispers* yes... *continues stirring*

47 of 182 ... ::Glares at the woman::
From: Jauxzer
Date: May 21 1999

::growls:: Ya, Draegon be mah big bro, what's it to ya?

::looks at Merloch and nods:: following.

48 of 182 ... ::cringes::
From: merloch
Date: May 21 1999

::winces at the remarks flying, then vanishes in a shimmer of silver light::

49 of 182 ... *smirks at Jauxzer, and shrugs, turning back to Gem*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

is.. is he anything like Draegon? *wispers so that only Gem hears*

50 of 182 ... ::walks out::
From: Jauxzer
Date: May 21 1999

::shoots one last distasteful comment at the woman and is gone::

51 of 182 ... *whispers to Zephy*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

Nah.. I highly doubt it. He hasn't shown any powers or anything.. It's like they are totally opposite!

52 of 182 ... *glances sharply where Jauxzer last was and turns back to Gem*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Oh.. I don't know.. he sure is rude. *smirks*

53 of 182 ... *talks in normal tone*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

But you know what's so weird? Merloch has taken a liking to him... I mean, they both left to do something. I mean, usually.. I would sneak over and watch but I would get caught. I think Jauxzer is a mage, He was casting some spells when I was watching them with Corbin. *continues stirring*

54 of 182 ... *moves closer to Gem, looking down into the stew*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Hmm.. odd.. Why would.. oh, nevermind.. guess Draegon would trust Jauxer with his son, seeing as they are family and all. *sighs softly, thinking*

55 of 182 ... No.. Jauxzer wasn't watching Corbin...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

Draegon handed Corbin to me so that I could watch over him, we were sleeping when we heard noises. Me and Corbin saw Merloch and Jauxzer. Apparently Merloch wanted something from Jauxzer or something, I didn't want to get into their business.. But Jauxzer seems to love Corbin.. Corbin calls him uncle and they seemed to like each other.. *smiles* No complaints here.. just confusion. I guess family comes first there.. *continues stirring* A couple more minutes and the stew should be done...

56 of 182 ... heh.. I don't know.. I wouldn't know..
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

I've never been there.. where they live.

57 of 182 ... I only been there once...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

Draegon was using my body at the time and when he left back into his own body, I was at his kingdom... It was weird.. crowdy.

damn.. got two bowls on ya?

58 of 182 ... No.. sorry, I don't have any bowls..
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

What do you mean "crowdy?"

59 of 182 ... *bursts out laughing*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*tries to calm, walking to his bag searching, pulling out two bowls and hands one to Zephy* Let's just say, everywhere you looked made a man rise... *snickers harshly as he begins getting himself some stew, Hands the spoon to Zephy* That's what I mean by "crowdy"... in a man's pants. *sits down, still attempting to calm his laughing*

60 of 182 ... *takes the bowl listening, trying very hard not to laugh, but fails
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

and bursts out laughing, taking the spoon to fill her bowl, hoping she doesn't spill too much of it*

61 of 182 ... *lets out a curse after spilling the hot liquid on my hand,
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

quickly taking the bowl into my other hand and sucks at the injured spot* Damn!.. *mutters softly, still chuckling* Soo.. Draegon has his court full, eh? *snickers*

62 of 182 ... *lets out a loud sigh, letting out any laughing urges*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

*snickers quietly* daanng... *pulls out a spoon and begins eating* That was hilarious!

63 of 182 ... *nods vigorously*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

That he does! You are lucky you ain't one of those women that breeds for him... sheesh... Corbin was a result of one of the breedings.

64 of 182 ... Thats all the women are there for?
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

To breed children? *shudders* how horrid.. *sits down on a log, digging around in one of her pouches to pull out a spoon*

65 of 182 ... That's what I saw...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

But they were like moths to a flame, they kept huddled over Draegon, always wanting to touch him and.. satisfy him.. *shrugs softly as he continues eating* The women seem to enjoy it.

66 of 182 ... *wrinkles her nose*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

How... ugh.. shameless.. suppose they would just do anything he said to do as well.. *shakes her head slightly, sighing as she begins to eat*

67 of 182 ... Makes me wonder...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

If they are brainwashed or something... *continues eating thoughtfully* I mean, There is no way in there or out. and his magick, or whatever he has is so foreign, I don't think you can bypass him or something..

68 of 182 ... the gods forbid I ever get taken there..
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

*shudders again* I'd hate it with a passion... A closed realm.. He is powerfull in his own right.. even I know better than to face him. Course he's too busy messing with the Ramseys to notice anyone else. Which is good for the rest of us, but bad for them.. *sighs softly*

69 of 182 ... *looks at Zephy*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

I think Jorael is ok with it. He knows that Draegon won't kill them... and Draegon has not been responsible for any deaths of the Ramsays this far... He's been multiplying the Ramsays, that's for sure... If Khaos didn't split us, I wouldn't be here today. I'd have Draegon contained.. *sighs and continues eating*

70 of 182 ... *frowns and shrugs, almost through with her stew*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

Still.. he's such a bully with them, always forcing himself on them and all. And there's no way to stop it from happening... Wish they'd try and stand up to him for once.. Maybe it'd get them killed.. but at least they wouldn't have to suffer him anymore.

71 of 182 ... You know...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

I think Jorael noticed something I haven't... He probably needs Draegon as a powerful ally. That castle that they have.. The Ramsay Castle, I think it was being attacked by something... I heard about that, That's why I didn't stop by.

72 of 182 ... Draegon as an ally?.. *chews on her lip in thought*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 21 1999

dangerous that is.. but I guess you have to do what you have to do, in order to save what you love the most.

73 of 182 ... *nods*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 21 1999

He's done nothing but conquer large kingdoms that were ruled by powerful rulers.. And he integrates them into his own kingdom. and bloodline as well... He gets more powerful everytime a large kingdom falls... It's weird. He has not ONE ally...

74 of 182 ... *frowns*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

If he infuses them into his bloodline how does he keep inbreeding from happening? Has Draegon ever thought of how things would continue after he was dead and gone?

(yeah, yeah, yeah.. Valheru talking about inbreeding.. *snickers*)

75 of 182 ... I don't think all his kids inherit all of them...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

It's like Corbin, Remember he had some boost... I think the Ramsays are all into the mind thing. Telepathy and so on... Draegon must've given some boost to Corbin... so that when he imagines something, It actually takes form and shape. I don't know... I feel so brain-dead about this. *finishes his bowl and sets it on the ground thinking* But his kingdom all have different bloodlines, each of his child has certain bloodlines that boosts each other... Another bloodline with abilities just supporting the other. It's real interesting...

76 of 182 ... Still.. *places her bowl on the ground as well*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

the way I figure.. the children are more like prized pets.. the way he breeds for only the best and such. What would Draegon do if he ever had a kid who wasn't magically inclined.. who was mundane as most humans are?

77 of 182 ... This may shock you...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

Truth is, he controls the babes... He can make them male or female and what bloodlines they will have before they are even forming in a mother's stomach. He's even sped pregnancies... I mean, Jarred suddenly got pregnant faster than I could snap my fingers!

78 of 182 ... *looks up at Gem*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

Now thats just... geezz... *shakes her head at the possibilities*

79 of 182 ... I don't even think Draegon has a normal babe...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

In human standards that is... It would be neat to find out if a babe came out and has nothing powerful, and how Draegon would react to that.

80 of 182 ... Do you think..
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

*voice lowers to a whisper* That Draegon would kill the child if it wasn't what he expected of it?

81 of 182 ... *whispers*
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

I don't know, as far as I can think.. He's protective of every child he's ever had...

82 of 182 ... yeah.. but none of them were imperfect to his desires either.
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

heh.. I wonder sometimes..*shrugs* I'm glad I never caught his intrest.

83 of 182 ... I think the only way you can catch his interest right now...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

Is if you had any relations or ... I don't know, involved with them somehow... I was a good friend of Cordell and I was used, by Draegon... I think he was interested in Gramma for a bit because she was holding a ramsay baby in her.. Remember?

84 of 182 ... *nods* I do remember.. But I myself.. I was a friend of Cordell,
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

and of Jarred... but still managed to keep away from Draegon's notice. Guess I was lucky in that. I'm surpised that Draegon hasn't done anything with Jerihan.

85 of 182 ... I think Jerihan is too young..
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

*looks at Zephy* He may go after Jerihan when he gets older and if the other ramsays have gone useless... I don't think he likes the fact that Cordell and Jarred have died..

86 of 182 ... ::a cloaked figure rides up upon a black horse::
From: merloch
Date: May 22 1999

::the figure approaches, looking around. He does not dismount, and his green eyes peirce through the scene before him::

87 of 182 ... Heh.. yeah, he doesn't like the fact he can't
From: Zephyr_Xternal

mess with their minds anymore.. *smirks slightly*

From: BlueGreenGem

Hello... May I help you?

89 of 182 ... ::his eyes dart over Gem, examining him::
From: merloch
Date: May 22 1999

::his voice, weary with travel::
I seek Gem Bluestone.

90 of 182 ... *looks at Zephy quietly*
From: BlueGreenGem

*thinking that something good is not going to come out of this* Well.. What do you want him for?

91 of 182 ... ::he gazes speculatively::
From: merloch

I am to give him a message.

92 of 182 ... Ok well...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

Then the person you are looking for, is me...

93 of 182 ... *quietly looks at Gem, then at the figure, curious*
From: Zephyr_Xternal

From: merloch

You are requested presence at Castle Krepta, then, Sir Bluestone. Along with your female companion. ::he smiles abit::

From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

Ok... *never having heard of Castle Krepta*

*whispers to Zephy* Pretend yer like my wife or something so that I don't get killed or something. *smirks softly*

*looks at the figure, voice in normal tone* We don't have anything to ride on, We'll have to walk.

96 of 182 ... ::he lifts a brow::
From: merloch
Date: May 22 1999

Walk?..::his eyes dialate and nods to himself:: You know the place, as Castle Ramsay.

97 of 182 ... Oh...
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

*nods* Rings a bell.. Merloch must've renamed it when it became his.. *walks to his bag and picks it up, noticing his eyes* Well, If you had brought something for us to ride on, we wouldn't have to walk, would we? *smiles sweetly*

98 of 182 ... *blinks, looking back at Gem*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

*wonders what is Castle Krepta, and who is requesting us there*

99 of 182 ... *stands quitely, shrugging* Oh.. thats right.. *sighs softly*

From: BlueGreenGem

Fine horses they are... *climbs on one and looks at Zephy* coming?

103 of 182 ... Much, thank you.. *nods to the figure*
From: Zephyr_Xternal
Date: May 22 1999

*walks to one of the horses and places her hand upon its muzzle, lightly stroking it, then mounts onto its back* Lead the way..

From: FaerieTale
Date: May 22 1999

*having become lost and disoriented within the strange forest, she wanders aimlessly...the only thing keeping her sane is the solace she gathers from the company of her GhostHounds, Sicarius never far from his mistress's side. She pushes through some thick foliage to suddenly be standing on the edge of a vast clearing......*

106 of 182 ... *looks at the noise*
From: BlueGreenGem

*quickly looking at whoever it was that stumbled in* Uh.. Hello?... *noticed his stew is still over the fire* Are you hungry? Would you like something to eat?

*she looks curiously at the one who spoke to her, than closes her eyes and breathes deeply the smell of the stew...she nods, and approaches cautiously, smyling shyly....she sits before the fire, extending her hands to warm her small fingers*

Pardon me, but perhaps you can explain this place to me? I'm usually quite at home amongst the tress....*she chuckles*......but this place confuses me......*she suddenly remembers her manners, and extends a small hand*.....forgive my rudeness....you are very kind to share your food with a stranger.....I am...Fae....*she smyles*

*quickly turns to his bag and opens it, pulling out a bowl with a spoon, looks at Fae and blushes* I gotta store the needs somewhere... *walks to the pot and begins scooping the stew into the bowl. makes a quick glance to the sides wondering where Zephy is, but turns to Fae, handing her the bowl*

I hope you will like this... Nova's gotten sick of it since it's all I make really. It's all I can afford right now, the usual ingredients. *noticed he is rambling*

*smirks softly and sits upon the log, falling back into his thinking daze* May I ask where you are from?

'Tis a pleasure to meet you, Gem.....*willingly takes the bowl, and tastes gingerly of the stew, then eating with more vigor, speaking as she eats*.....I know not this people of whom you speak......are they as friendly as you? I shall look forward to meeting them, if they are.........my home-land is called Shai-doah, and it is a land of many faces....tho' I've not seen it for many, many years.....*she sighs softly, and her eyes glaze as she is lost in memories momentarily*.....I've been travelling for longer than I can remember, and a wandering traveller led me down this path.....*she grins*

*a young woman, about 19 in appearance, walks through the foilage, her golden blonde hair pulled up loosely with several strands curling up about her face, and her brown eyes looking weary. Her clothes, a sleeveless green tunic and blac leggings, are a bit tattered and her barefeet have scratches all over them. She makes her way over to the Ivory tree and sits beside it, looking lost in thought or more like she's asleep.*

~She takes the form of a young woman, appearing perhaps 25 at the most, her medium brown skin and dark brown eyes accented by the deep blue split-panel riding dress she wears. Her raven hair curls in gentle waves, held back from her face by twin gold dragon barrettes. The mithril dragon hangs on it's golden chain, the golden mesh choker at her throat, it's fire opal gleaming with inner life. On her right hand she wears a simple silver cladaugh, crown up~

No, they want to see the children dead. That's why everything was set up the way it was. I don't want them anywhere near the children. They might just try something.

She sees the small form sleeping by the trees and conjures up some blankets. She walks over and covers the person up, hounds and all. Moving away, she conjures up a basket covered with a white cloth. Inside the basket is a variety of cheeses, fruits, cured meats, and breads plus some drink. She sets it close to the person and leaves a note for her saying the food is for her and welcoming her to the clearing. Finally, she looks around and sees no one else and then quickly leaves.*

169 of 182 ... War in the Realm of Night
From: DarkNova11
Date: May 27 1999

'The entire clearing goes black, as phantom figures appear. A vision of another place, at another time can be seen.
A monstrous army of humans, elves, and dwarves covers a vast valley. Countless cooking fires can be scene. As the two moons set, an almost impenetrable veil of blackness spreads over the valley. Screams can be heard, as dark shapes dart from the sky, silver blades cutting deeply into flesh. The army is instantly awake, as a horde of vampires, werebeasts and other creatures of the night, come sweeping into the encampement. A blue can be scene from the rear as Nova and his knights, charge into the enemy lines, cutting a bloody path of death and carnage through the enemy ranks, Shaitan at his side leaving corpses, twisted and mangled in his wake.
From the center of the encampment a white figure appears. Raising its hand it sends a beam of whiteness into the air. Light springs into being, Nova's forces fall back under heavy counter attack. Seeing a fallen knight he picks him up and throws him over his shoulder. Stumbling as a crossbow bolt hits him in the leg, going clean through his armour and out the other side.
Turning he sets the knight down as a group of elves charge him. He raises his sword into the air grasping it with both hands, before plunging it tip first into the ground. Blue fire leaps towards the elves spraying dirt and boulders, it hits the group blowing some apart and flash freezing others. Turning back he picks up the knight as Shaitan comes to his side. Putting his arm around Nova he transports them to safety.
The vision fades away.'

'Tis okay, my Hounds wont hurt you.....*as if to reassure him, Sicarius trots over to Gem and sniffs curiously at his hand, before giving him a gentle lick and returning to sit on his haunches by his mistress*.....I'm sorry, I was awfully tired......did you leave me these blankets?

Onyx shuddered as whatever teleportation spell that had brought her here wore off. She blinked, looking about her. She was in a strange clearing somewhere, which confused her. Last she knew, she had been teasing Khisanth over her lastest blooper. Quickly, she spotted Khisanth a little ways away from her, looking about. Voices made both Onyx and Khisanth paused, then spoke up.
"Who's there? Where am I?"
Onyx sidled over to Khisanth, and Khisanth momentarily jumped before recognizing who had arrived.
"Where are we?" Onyx asked. Khisanth shook her head.
"I have no idea."
The sounds of footsteps approaching from behind caused the two long-time friends to whirl around to face whatever came...
