  312.         Rochette:       "Understood." She holds the spear against herself, resting it on her shoulder. Uncertain about what to do, she recalls her pokemon and approaches the others.
  313.         Chloe Blanchett:        Seeing Saturn break down didn't do Chloe any good. The tears she held back started to drop. She grimaced, there was no sobbing, no cries. Nothing but hot tears against her cheeks.
  314.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Good job handling those....whatever they are Phyllis."
  315. * Valerie Ylsef returns Phyllis
  316.         Finch:  Finch looked around and surveyed the area. Nothing else appeared to be moving. We were okay?
  317.         Finch:  Perception to look at whatever that chest is, 5d6+4 .
  318.         Rochette:       "... ah." She goes and recovers the arrow, sliding it into her quiver before walking back to the two on their knees.
  319. * Valerie Ylsef takes the oportunity to chug down a couple of potions
  320. Chronicler whispers: None of the things you were fighting are moving and the only movement are the twitches the dying Pokemon made.
  321. Valerie Ylsef must wait 28.028 seconds before it may move again!
  322.         Valerie Ylsef:  Valerie Ylsef is healed and gains 35 hit points.
  323. * Finch nodded, and hopped over to join the others.
  324.         Rochette:       "Your pokemon should be alright... they'll need time to heal, but we can take a break for the time being," she says, reaching down to pat each of the two on the shoulder. "I have revival herbs, if you need them."
  325. * Valerie Ylsef sets two potions down by Saturn and wanders off to investigate the chest.
  326.         Vorpal 1:       Vorpal looked to Finch and nodded. Otherwise sitting on the ground next to her trainer.
  327.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn was mumbling almost incoherently, still crying. "Why am I here... Why did I come here... Why did I agree to this... I want to go home, but I don't have one to go to..."
  328.         Saturn Rosewell:        49.7 Current Max HP
  329. DNA:    Rounding! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  330.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'm sorry..." Chloe whispered.
  331.         Chronicler:     Ahem! So uuhhh. Survival checks. The lot of you.
  332.         Finch:  I detest you, but 2d6 it is .
  333.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((pokemon that were out as well I assume?))
  334.         Chronicler:     Also you guys get 240 Pokemon Exp per Trainer, split evenly among the Pokemon used this battle.
  335.         Chloe Blanchett:        Survival!
  336. * Rochette sets her spear down and pulls out her harp. Rather than using any of its abilities, she just starts strumming on it, trying to play a comforting, warming tune to help guide Saturn's mood. ((survival 3d6+3 ))
  337.         Chronicler:     No, whoever's out when I said that.
  338.         Saturn Rosewell:        Survival 2d6+2 .
  339.         Valerie Ylsef:  Survival
  340.         Chronicler:     kthx
  341.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...what is that song, and where did you learn it...?"
  342.         Rochette:       "Making it up as I go."
  343. * Valerie Ylsef looks to Finch, "Anything seem odd about this thing or can I open it?"
  344.         Rochette:       ((shall i roll charm, DNA? to improve saturn's disposition?))
  345.         Finch:  Finch gives it a look, again with Perception 5d6+4 .
  346. DNA:    @Avara: If you want, but i'm not sure how much it will do.
  347.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...none of this stuff was happening before I found you guys... ...I shouldn't have done this... ...I'm too gullible for this..."
  348.         Rochette:       16 to cheer up Saturn.
  349. DNA:    Since it's Rochette, it seems to work a little, but she's still really out of it, especially from that punch.
  350.         Saturn Rosewell:        "At least if we keep going, there's a chance I might die and this misery will be over..."
  351.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe's head sunk. She felt a lot was her own idea, it was her fault Saturn had gone through this. It was her fault Natasha was forced into battle and hurt as bad as she was.
  352.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Y-you can't die!" Chloe shouted. "What happens to Natasha then!"
  353.         Finch:  Anything from my perception check?
  354.         Saturn Rosewell:        "She'll probably just go back to the one who gave her to me..."
  355. Demonic Creature: (( I sent you a whisper about it ))
  356.         Chloe Blanchett:        "But she's so happy with you."
  357.         Rochette:       "Saturn, you're not going to die. You and Natasha will both live and thrive. I promise that you will get out of this, and... once we finish searching Kanto, we may be able to find a place we can all truly call home."
  358.         Finch:  I thought that was just for the monsters. I didn't see anything about the chest itself.
  359.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I really envy your friendship with Natasha...."
  360.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I don't want to live, not in a world like this..." Her tears were slowing down, but instead of giving way to just ordinary sadness, they were showing anger.
  361. Demonic Creature: (( Well the chest isn't moving. ))
  362. * Finch shakes his head 'no' to Valerie. He senses nothing peculiar about it at all.
  363.         Chloe Blanchett:        "That's why I like being the hero. Remember the faces of the sisters when we saved them?"
  364.         Saturn Rosewell:        "No, I don't."
  365.         Rochette:       "Then change it. If you give up and die, you condemn everyone ELSE to live in a world like this. Move. Push back. Punch life in the face for giving you such garbage lemons. Change it so that it's somewhere worthwhile for yourself and everyone you care about."
  366.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'm such a worthless person. I've never done anything for anyone before... it made me so happy to help someone else."
  367.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe hugged her knees to her chest.
  368. * Valerie Ylsef will attempt to fiddle with the lock on the chest.
  369.         Saturn Rosewell:        "That's what I plan to do, Rochette." She stood up. "At the very least, I can make sure I kill that disease. Then someone's life will be worth living."
  370. * Saturn Rosewell took the two potions that Valerie set at her feet, and applied them.
  371.         Chloe Blanchett:        "But now I'm just bringing you here. Hurting you because I liked playing hero once. I'm really sorry."
  372.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell recovered 40 HP!
  373.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Then it'll be a chance for you to get the glory again, Chloe. I went along last time to help you, and I can do it again."
  374.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe nodded reluctantly, then stood to her feet.
  375.         Rochette:       "Then don't hope for death. Don't give up. You'll make this place worthwhile." She then looks over to Chloe, "And if you call yourself worthless again, I'm going to punch you. You're the one who got all the sisters out of that cave. You helped bring all of us together, even when the worst of us was around. Our parents didn't abandon us because of worthlessness. We. Are. The future. We. Are. The hope. We fight so that others don't have to. We are trainers. That is our path."
  376.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn was, at this point, forcing herself not to cry, replacing her sadness with anger to do so.
  377.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...You're right. My parents didn't abandon me." She turned around and made to move forward. "I abandoned them."
  378.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's go. Vertwyvern is counting on you guys."
  379.         Finch:  "..."
  380.         Rochette:       "Make sure that your pokemon are all healed up before we move on."
  381.         Finch:  "Aue, Natasha, kei hea koe?"
  382.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'm trying not to be worthless Rochette. That's why I started all of this." Chloe grew quieter.
  383.         Rochette:       "Vertwyvern may be counting on us, but we're counting on you as well, Saturn."
  384. * Saturn Rosewell searched her pack for something.
  385. * Valerie Ylsef continues to futz around with the lock.
  386.         Rochette:       "You're doing good, Chloe. Just keep doing good. Doing better. We will get through this."
  387. * Rochette looks over to Valerie. "Need help?"
  388.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I need to revive Natasha before we keep going. Does anyone have a Revival Herb or should I just use a basic Revive?"
  389. * Rochette passes Saturn a revival herb.
  390.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I could use an herb as well. I don't want to burden Mimsy, but leaving her unconcious sounds even worse."
  391. * Rochette hands Chloe the last revival herb.
  392.         Chronicler:     Valerie fiddles with the lock for a momemt but is unable to unlock it.
  393.         Natasha:        Natasha recovered 35 HP!
  394.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Yah probably gonna need help, never was much good with this kind of thing."
  395.         Natasha:        "Bleck! Dat smaakte naar kompost!"
  396.         Rochette:       "We will make their sacrifice worth it," Rochette mutters to herself, though audible to the others, as she walks over to the treasure chest.
  397.         Rochette:       ((appropriate skill check?))
  398. Chronicler: (( Stealth ))
  399.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((stealth))
  400.         Rochette:       ((does infiltrator apply?))
  401. * Saturn Rosewell spoke sternly to Natasha in Dutch "Don't touch me, Natasha. I might be infected."
  402. * Natasha was surprised by the stern tone.
  403.         Natasha:        42.0
  404. Chronicler: (( Based on wording, yes ))
  405.         Rochette:       (Stealth, 4d6+3+2)
  406.         Chronicler:     Rochette is able to pick the lock after a few moments of poking at it.
  407.         Rochette:       "We all could be infected. We'll visit the doctor once we're done here. He or his family might be able to cleanse the illness from carriers as well as sufferers." She pushes the chest open.
  408.         Mimsy:  Mimsy loses 0 hit points.
  409. * Rochette looks into the treasure chest.
  410. * Natasha was quickly recalled so as to remove chance of infection
  411.         Saturn Rosewell:        The chance that Finch and herself were both infected was already pretty high. She didn't want that to spread to her only friend.
  412.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe applied the Revival herb to Mimsy, before recalling her in short order.
  413.         Chronicler:     Inside of the treasure chest you find:
  414. Cloak of Endurance & Insight
  415. Medical Wrist Bands of Windveil
  416. Silver Band of Motion
  417. DNA:    Ah crap, gotta apply dat EXP. Shouldn't take long...
  418.         Chronicler:     790 moneys and.... (awaiting generator)
  419. Avara:  need to look up those enchants once i'm done levelling
  420.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe recalled Vorpal as well.
  421.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((is puttin stuff into the lootz))
  422.         Chronicler:     3 Potions and 1 Antidote.
  423. Chronicler: (( Took a while for just that. :/ )) ))
  424. DNA:    hahaha wow
  425. Avara:  brb
  426.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((Medical or Medicinal?))
  427. Avara:  back
  428. DNA:    I assume you're going to say what all of those things do in a side-window, or here?
  429.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((i'm shoving them in the lootz))
  430. DNA:    k
  431.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((though I am not finding the motion enchantment))
  432.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((there it is))
  433.         Chronicler:     Medicinal. Soz.
  434.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'll take a potion or two. I might need it for the upcoming battles..."
  435.         Rochette:       "I'm going to use up my remaining potion supply to get my team ready for the next fight.
  436.         Valerie Ylsef:  "I think I can last with what I have left, hopefully."
  437.         Roland:         Roland is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  438.         Biter:  Biter is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  439.         Fens:   Fens is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  440.         Chloe Blanchett:        "How many can I have?"
  441.         Rochette:       "As many as you need, but you might want to use some on Saturn and yourself."
  442.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe took the three potions from the loot chest. She used one on herself and pocketed the other two.
  443.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe Blanchett is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  444.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...We're gonna be fine."
  445.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Yeah, lets get out of this heat before we melt. I'm worried this place might be used to incubate the disease."
  446.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe's eyes were still a little red, both from the lenses and her tears. But she looked more determined now.
  447.         Rochette:       "Forward and onward, then. For the betterment of the world, and our next paycheck."
  448.         Chronicler:     I'll highlight the exits again.
  449.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe walked to the next room and froze.
  450.         Chloe Blanchett:        "That's... something strange..."
  451.         Chronicler:     Is Finch still around?
  452.         Finch:  yeah, though I was nearer the chest.
  453.         Finch:  doo-dee-doo-dee-doo...
  454. * Valerie Ylsef takes the Cloak out of the chest and tries it one for size
  455.         Saturn Rosewell:        "What is it?"
  456.         Chronicler:     A single, jagged pillar of rock lined with glowing blue-green moss emerges from the depths of the pool within the center of this cavern. Water courses down its side from a font near its tip, cascading into the pool below. The pool feeds a wide stream that flows rapidly along the length of the room and then under the rock wall at the southern end of the cave. Several glyphs are carved deep into the stone face of the pillar, their outlines just visible beneath the light of the moss. An eerie sense of discomfort pervades this place.
  457.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Water... that's how the disease is spread I'll bet."
  458.         Chronicler:     The cavern is about 22 meters wide by 22 meters long. The pillar in the center is fairly massive, having a 4-meter radius and stretching 8 meters up into the air.
  459.         Rochette:       "It's a good thing we gave the villagers a water filter, then."
  460.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe tries to see the figure in the middle!
  461.         Chloe Blanchett:        Perception
  462. * Saturn Rosewell tries to sense the figure in the middle, focusing intently on it. Intuition 5d6+1 .
  463.         Chloe Blanchett:        What is her type! Pokemon!
  464.         Chloe Blanchett:        What do I know about demons! Occult!
  465.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Trying to discern as much information as possible - origin, intent, abilities, and such.)
  466. * Valerie Ylsef looks around trying to figure out what the brainy ladies are thinking about.
  467.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Darkness and Shadow..." Chloe whispered. "Those are her types."
  468.         Rochette:       "Shadow..." she curses under her breath.
  469. Chronicler whispers: The creature you sense is vile and magical in nature. The same magics that radiate from the creature also radiates in the pillar and faintly from the water. The creature is of old origin not unlike from the sisters time. You're unable to sense any other information.
  470.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm getting...a horrible vibe from her..."
  471.         Chloe Blanchett:        "She's really high up there. I wonder what she's doing."
  472.         Saturn Rosewell:        "She's radiating with some kind of magic... and the pillar and the water have it too..."
  473.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Ugh Magic..."
  474.         Rochette:       "The illness. I didn't expect to still be right about magic being involved."
  475.         Saturn Rosewell:        "She might be from the same time as the sisters, to boot..."
  476.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe examines the water, pillars and runes! What do they mean and do! Occult!
  477.         Chronicler:     What languages do you know?
  478.         Chloe Blanchett:        Only kanto human
  479. Rochette: (( do the runes look like kanto pokemon, or similar? ))
  480.         Chronicler:     No.
  481.         Saturn Rosewell:        Mystic Senses + Intuition to find exactly what kind of magic is in the pillar/creature. 5d6+1 !
  482. Rochette: (( shame. i was hoping. the deity from the prison recognized kanto pokemon iirc ))
  483. Chronicler whispers: Only Occult will give you information on magic.
  484. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Fine, 2d6+2 then .
  485.         Chronicler:     What languages do you know, Saturn?
  486. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: This is even accounting for Mystic Senses being able to sense magical objects?
  487.         Saturn Rosewell:        Human Kanto, and Human Hoenn
  488. Chronicler whispers: Sensing them doesn't give you information.
  489. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Fair enough.
  490. DNA:    Can we see if there are any ways out of this place?
  491. DNA:    (Other than the way we came in, of course.)
  492. Chronicler whispers: While the runes aren't the exact language of Hoenn you can make one some letters that are similar. You make out the word pestilence. What you can tell about the magic at work here is that aura from the soil and water are being absorbed by the runes and there's a feedback of tainted aura being shot back into the water.
  493.         Chronicler:     That's the only exit you can see.
  494.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Rochette... You were right. That pillar is what's causing the disease."
  495.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's absorbing energy from water and soil, tainting it, and returning it."
  496.         Rochette:       "So we should destroy the runes?"
  497.         Saturn Rosewell:        "The word 'pestilence' is written on there."
  498.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...It's a sound idea, I'd think."
  499.         Rochette:       "We have ranged attacks."
  500.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If the runes are eradicated, it should stop the disease."
  501.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What if we could rewrite the runes? If we could make it spell 'health' and create a spring of purity?"
  502.         Rochette:       "Do any of us have the magical talent necessary to empower the runes?"
  503. * Saturn Rosewell thinks...
  504.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Why not try. Then break if we can't."
  505.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I think that Wynaut I got earlier is a bit of an occult freak."
  506.         Rochette:       "We can try, then. First, though... to kill a plaguespawner."
  507.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Move closer or just shout and ask her to stop?"
  508. DNA:    Okay, I have a weird question.
  509.         Rochette:       "Single target, no reason to stay bunched up."
  510. DNA:    If I manage to hit the creature, will it fall to the ground?
  511.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((I think the pillar is 8 meters tall))
  512.         Chronicler:     It is.
  513.         Chronicler:     And you do not have LoS.
  514. DNA:    Oh, crap, I forgot about the altitude difference.
  515. DNA:    8.9442719100
  516. DNA:    ...good to know...
  517.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((I cannot see Brillig.))
  518. Brillig must wait 4.291 seconds before it may move again!
  519.         Brillig:        Brillig is released.
  520.         Rochette:       "Going to walk in." She exchanges the spear for her harp, waiting for permission from the group.
  521.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Go ahead. We can't start until we move."
  522. * Saturn Rosewell nods. "I'll follow you if you want."
  523. * Rochette steps into the room, strumming on the harp idly. No special melody, but something intuitive regardless. She also brings out Roland.
  524.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature lifts its head as it hears someone approaching its pillar.
  525.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature twitches, hearing the familiar sound of a Pokémon being released.
  526.         Rochette:       "Quite the bit of magic you've managed," she calls out.
  527.         Rochette:       "Will you be coming down, or will I be flying up to speak with you? I should rather like not to damage my neck attempting to throw my voice up to you."
  528.         Demonic Creature:       "Flere mennesker? Vennligst gå bort. La meg hvile ..."
  529.         Rochette:       "No idea what she's saying."
  530.         Demonic Creature:       "Jeg kan ikke forstå noen av dere. Bare dra. Forlate."
  531. DNA:    GM, I shot you a question in the Skype window
  532.         Rochette:       "Matau e koe tenei?" (Do you understand this?)
  533.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature lifts its head some, hearing a different language.
  534. * Valerie Ylsef releases Domino
  535. * Rochette waits for a response.
  536.         Demonic Creature:       "Du snakke ny og frisk og ennå du fremdeles høres ikke av denne verden. Hvis du kan forstå meg, vær så snill. Jeg ber deg. La meg være å hvile."
  537.         Rochette:       "Anyone understand what she's said yet?"
  538.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe shook her head.
  539.         Saturn Rosewell:        "No, I don't..."
  540.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Begrijp je mij?" Saturn asked. (Do you understand me? Hoennese.)
  541.         Demonic Creature:       "La meg være å hvile. Vær så snill. Vær så snill..."
  542.         Rochette:       ((tone of voice?))
  543.         Saturn Rosewell:        Mine or its?
  544.         Demonic Creature:       "Eindelijk! Ik kan iemand begrijpen!"
  545.         Domino:         "El Ella diablo! ¿Por qué me has traído aquí !?"
  546.         Rochette:       ((demonic creature's))
  547. Demonic Creature whispers: Finally! I can understand someone!
  548.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Eek!"
  549. * Saturn Rosewell was surprised. This thing actually spoke her language!
  550.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It...It understands me!"
  551.         Demonic Creature:       "Alsjeblieft, ga weg. Laat me, ik smeek u. Laat me rusten."
  552. Demonic Creature whispers: Please, go away. Leave me be, I beg of you. Let me rest.
  553.         Rochette:       "Looks like it responded to you, Saturn." She pats Saturn's shoulder. "Explain the problem."
  554. Demonic Creature: (( Anyone wanting to know what language she's speaking can do a General Edu check ))
  555.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Een moment van uw tijd, alstublieft? Er zijn mensen buiten lijden als gevolg van deze pijler. Wat doet het?"
  556. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "A moment of your time, please? There are people outside suffering because of this pillar. What is it doing?"
  557.         Rochette:       (gen edu 2d6 to identify the first language)
  558. DNA:    Going to be whispering you the translations.
  559.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe just relies on her intuition to understand the intent of the demonic creature's words. Intuition
  560.         Demonic Creature:       "Het is de heropleving van me na een lange, lange tijd voorbij. Ik bedoel iedereen kwaad. Ik wil gewoon om te rusten en te herstellen."
  561. Demonic Creature whispers: It is reviving me after a long, long time past. I do mean anyone any harm. I just want to rest and recover.
  562. Demonic Creature whispers: (( Do not* ))
  563.         Chloe Blanchett:        "She sounds upset..."
  564.         Saturn Rosewell:        "She's resting and wants us to just leave..." Saturn says to the group. Then, back to her.
  565.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Het lijkt te worden veroorzaakt een ziekte die onschadelijk is voor Pokemon, maar dodelijk voor de mens. Is er een manier om te veranderen wat deze pijler straalt, zonder nadelige gevolgen voor u?"
  566. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "It seems to be causing a disease that is harmless to Pokemon, but deadly to humans. Is there any way to change what this pillar exudes, without harming you?"
  567.         Saturn Rosewell:        "We kwamen alleen om deze ziekte te stoppen. We bedoelen niet u of iemand geen kwaad."
  568. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "We only came to stop this disease. We don't mean you or anyone any harm."
  569.         Demonic Creature:       "Het voedt het leven in mij en het verdrijven van de dood die me ooit geconsumeerd. Ik ben geen tovenaar zoals mijn meester. Ik ken geen een dergelijke manier. Alsjeblieft, ik wil gewoon leven. Laat me met rust en laat me rusten ..."
  570. Demonic Creature whispers: It is feeding life into me and expelling the death that once consumed me. I am no sorcerer like my master. I know of no such way. Please, I just want to live. Leave me alone and let me rest...
  571.         Chronicler:     You can hear sobbing echo from atop the pillar.
  572.         Saturn Rosewell:        "... ..."
  573.         Rochette:       "What's she saying?"
  574.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's feeding life into her and expelling death..."
  575.         Rochette:       "That would be why... hm." She looks around, thinking.
  576. DNA:    Question, can Saturn levitate up to her, or am I still bound by an altitude restriction at this time?
  577.         Valerie Ylsef:  "You mean like an oil filter?"
  578.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Weet je wat deze runen zeggen? Kunnen ze veranderd worden?"
  579. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "Do you know what these runes say? Can they be changed?"
  580.         Chronicler:     You are bound by Altitude restricton yes.
  581. DNA:    Stupid Levitate speed, giving me a max altitude.
  582.         Chronicler:     Give me an intuition, Saturn for the incoming message.
  583.         Saturn Rosewell:        Intuition 5d6+1 .
  584.         Rochette:       "The river is probably necessary to flow around the pillar. Bring in new, carry out old. Maybe we could reshape things to make a contained flow around the pillar instead? Or make a filter right where the river leaves the cave... or we could offer to capture her, and take her to see some magically adept people for solutions. That, or we kill as promised."
  585.         Demonic Creature:       "Ik - ik weet het niet! Misschien? Ik ben niet de caster mijn meester was. Waarom kun je niet gewoon met rust laten?"
  586. Demonic Creature whispers: I - I don't know! Maybe? I am not the caster my master was. Why can't you just leave me alone?
  587. Demonic Creature whispers: She is lying. And you know it.
  588.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wat als we konden deze pijler veranderen zodat het u zou helpen, maar anderen niet te schaden? Zou dat u ervan overtuigen dat wij bedoelen geen kwaad?"
  589. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "What if we could change this pillar so it would help you, but not harm others? Would that convince you that we mean no harm?"
  590.         Demonic Creature:       "Je bent een mens. Ik kan zeggen. Je ruikt net als de anderen en dragen de monsters ze doen. Mensen hebben altijd betekende mij kwaad en ik heb geen hulp van u maar wilt. Alles wat ik wil is met rust gelaten worden om te rusten. Niets meer. Waarom kan je niet gewoon weg?"
  591. Demonic Creature whispers: You're a human. I can tell. You smell like the others and carry the monsters they do. Humans have always meant me harm and I don't want any help from you. All I want is to be left alone to rest. Nothing more. Why can't you just go away?
  592.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn whispers to the others. "Guys...I'm going in, but cover me, okay? Don't follow me yet."
  593. * Saturn Rosewell starts airwalking towards her.
  594.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hoe kan ik bewijzen dat mijn oprechtheid voor u, dan?"
  595.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Understood."
  596. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "How can I prove my sincerity to you, then?"
  597. * Rochette nods.
  598.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Rodger"
  599.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe mounts brillig, just in case
  600. * Finch is watching carefully...
  601.         Demonic Creature:       "Neem de andere mensen en die monsters weg van hier. Ik wil gewoon om te rusten en te genezen. Als deze pijler, dat geeft mij het leven is anderen te kwetsen, ik zal het breken. Nadat ik heb rustte. Kunnen we dat doen? Kun je hen te overtuigen om te vertrekken?"
  602. Demonic Creature whispers: Take the other humans and those monsters away from here. I just want to rest and heal. If this pillar that gives me life is hurting others, I'll break it. After I've rested. Can we do that? Can you convince them to leave?
  603.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hoe lang gaat dat duren? Ik begrijp uw behoefte om te rusten, maar er zijn andere levens die er ook, die afhankelijk zijn van je, en wat je doet. Ik wil gewoon de ziekte te genezen. En ik wil om het te doen zonder je te kwetsen."
  604. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "How long will that take? I understand your need to rest, but there are other lives out there too, that depend on you, and what you do. I just want to cure the disease. And I want to do it without hurting you."
  605. Demonic Creature whispers: Intuition again.
  606.         Rochette:       "Did you present her with the different possible options besides battle?"
  607.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm going to..."
  608.         Saturn Rosewell:        Intuition 5d6+1 .
  609.         Demonic Creature:       "Ik weet niet hoe! Dit is niet mijn magie. Ik weet niet hoe lang het zal duren. Ik ben ... Ik weet het niet, halverwege volledig hersteld?"
  610. Demonic Creature whispers: I don't know how! This isn't my magick. I don't know how long it'll take. I'm...I don't know, halfway fully recovered?
  611. Demonic Creature whispers: She's lying again. Either about the magic or how long it'll take, you aren't sure. But there was a lie in her last statement.
  612. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Can I pinpoint which lie (with another check), or do I have to guess? Or can I tell if it's the same lie as before?
  613. Demonic Creature whispers: You exhausted your intuition so you have to guess.
  614. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Any way to tell how long the pillar has been here, though?
  615. Demonic Creature whispers: Hmm, that'd be history so...occult or general.
  616. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: It's a 2d6+2 either way, so: .
  617. You have disconnected.
  618. Chloe has connected.
  619. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  620. Avara has connected.
  621. Trulhammaren has connected.
  622. Avara:  last thing said?
  623. Eclipse has connected.
  624. DNA:    I made an Education check; did that go through?
  625. Demonic Creature: (( Options of battle ))
  626. Demonic Creature: (( Yup and I'm guessing you didn't get my reply. ))
  627. DNA:    I did not, no.
  628. DNA:    (That was the last thing I did, making the check.)
  629. Demonic Creature whispers: It's roughly made during the year 800. Give or take a century.
  630. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So that means it has been here for at least 700 years. Any way to tell who made it? i.e. "her" or "not her"?
  631. Demonic Creature whispers: You don't know too much about "her" so you can't say if she did or didn't. But, that was during Lugia and Ho-oh's 'magical' era and when the Bell and Brass Towers were built as well as Ecruteak City.
  632. * Saturn Rosewell moves a bit closer again, as much as she can to this woman.
  633.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell goes up 2 meter(s).
  634.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Misschien kunnen we dit samen doen? We konden deze pijler te passen, zodat het u kan genezen en verspreiden genezing tot waar deze rivier stroomt. Op die manier is de ziekte buiten zal worden gegaan en je zult nog steeds prima. Wat zeg je? Laat je me helpen?"
  635. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "Maybe we can do this together? We could adjust this pillar so that it can heal you and spread healing to where this river flows. That way, the disease outside will be gone and you will still be fine. What do you say? Will you let me help?"
  636.         Chronicler:     Where the square is, that is the top of the pillar.
  637.         Chronicler:     You cannot go beyond the squares edges without being 8-meters in elevation.
  638. DNA:    Ah, I'm sorry. I thought the middle 2x2 was the top, and the rest of the area was leading up.
  639.         Demonic Creature:       "Mensen geprobeerd om mij voor te doden en al hun monsters. Je wilt alleen maar om mij te doden, ik weet het. Hoe weet ik dat je niet alleen breken en me vermoorden? Hoe weet ik zelfs willen helpen of blikje?"
  640. Demonic Creature whispers: Humans tried to kill me before and all of their monsters. You only want to kill me, I know it. How do I know you won't just break it and kill me? How do I know even want to help or can?
  641. Demonic Creature whispers: At this point, the creature has established it doesn't trust you or anyone else here. Your best bet is to try and improve her disposition to you. That requires a Charm check. Failing this, however, could make her aggressive and more difficult to talk to.
  642. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: There's no way anything else I could say at this point could improve her standing of me?
  643. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Even if I did something like name-drop?
  644. Demonic Creature whispers: Most likely not. She's adamantly distrustful of you and knows you're all hostile.
  645. Demonic Creature whispers: You can try it.
  646.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn tried something. "Kent u de naam van akeldama herkennen?"
  647. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "Do you recognize the name 'Akeldama'?"
  648.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature paused.
  649.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature stopped her sobbing and grew quiet.
  650.         Demonic Creature:       "Ik weet niet meer schelen ... Doe wat je moet."
  651.         Finch:  "...??" Finch grew curious. Why had she stopped crying suddenly? What did Saturn say?
  652. Demonic Creature whispers: I don't care anymore... Do whatever you must.
  653.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wat is er mis? Waarom ben je zo verdrietig? Vertel mij alstublieft. Ik kan helpen."
  654. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "What's wrong? Why are you so sad? Please, tell me. I can help."
  655.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature doesn't respond. She remains quiet and motionless.
  656.         Chronicler:     And then there was silence.
  657.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Sooooo?"
  658.         Chronicler:     So quiet you could hear the levitation of Saturn and the flight of Brillig.
  659. DNA:    Wait, what? What happened to her? Did she just enter a state of suspended animation?
  660.         Chronicler:     Hadn't it been for those two, you could probably hear the Pokemon twitching the room away.
  661.         Chronicler:     She just grew quiet. Pretty much she stopped talking to you.
  662. Avara:  wait... 'pokemon twitching the room away'?
  663.         Chronicler:     Yes. It was in the description of the area when you first entered.
  664.         Chronicler:     Sandshrew and Rattata.
  665. Avara:  ... oh buggery, it's starting the fight by bringing in reinforcements, isn't it
  666.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn will try and say one more thing to her.
  667. DNA:    (No, the Sandshrew were the near-dead bodies.)
  668. Chronicler: (( BRB, gotta deal with crying child. ))
  669. Chronicler: (( uhh, discuss stuff and what-not I guess? ))
  670.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ik weet wat het is om wantrouwen en gehaat worden door anderen, enkel voor het zijn anders dan hen. Ik weet dat je pijn. Het is waar dat ik wil mensen buiten te helpen ... maar ik zou veel liever doen samen met u, met uw hulp."
  671. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "I know what it's like to distrust and be hated by others, just for being different than them. I know your pain. It's true that I want to help those outside...but I would much rather do so alongside you, with your help."
  672.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn will wait for the creature's reaction.
  673.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe watched on in tense silence. She trusted Saturn, and whatever action Saturn would take Chloe would follow.
  674.         Rochette:       ((test))
  675.         Saturn Rosewell:        hi
  676.         Rochette:       ((confirm?))
  677.         Rochette:       ((is more whispering going on?))
  678. Eclipse:        No, pot was brb to take care of a crying child. So, we're all waiting.
  679. Avara:  ah, ok. thought that was trul saying that.
  680.         Chronicler:     I am back.
  681.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature does not respond to Saturn's words.
  682. Eclipse:        Hello!
  683. * Saturn Rosewell was a bit disappointed there was no response.
  684.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Guys, let's fix this pillar to heal the town. No violence, okay?"
  685. * Saturn Rosewell then repeated those words so that the creature could understand.
  686.         Valerie Ylsef:  "What ever you say."
  687.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's see, where did I see that word..."
  688. * Saturn Rosewell is going to airwalk around to the part where she saw the words written, particularly 'pestilence'.
  689.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked uncertain, but didn't say anything.
  690.         Domino:         Estúpidos humanos están locos
  691. Saturn Rosewell must wait 9.157 seconds before it may move again!
  692. * Domino returns himself
  693.         Saturn Rosewell:        Would Saturn know enough of that language (being hers versus its) to rewrite any of the words? and if so, what is required?
  694.         Chronicler:     You're doing runic writing. This could be easily done by a Runewarden but can be done by anyone else with enough occult knowledge.
  695. DNA:    RUNEWARDEN! *shakes fist*
  696. DNA:    Do I know which words to write, though?
  697.         Chronicler:     ...? Did you plan to take that class or something?
  698. DNA:    no, I didn't
  699.         Chronicler:     The language itself isn't so much of a problem as long as all the runes are of the same language.
  700. DNA:    This is just the one time it will ever be useful
  701. DNA:    Let's see, I've established which word is 'pestilence', so can I try and smudge it out and replace it with the word for 'healing'?
  702.         Chronicler:     Yes.
  703.         Saturn Rosewell:        Oh, do I recognize any of the other words?
  704.         Chronicler:     You do not.
  705.         Saturn Rosewell:        Not even slightly?
  706.         Chronicler:     Gimme a sec
  707.         Saturn Rosewell:        (like similarities or something? or even just common-ish words between languages?)
  708.         Chronicler:     The runes you see say:
  709.         Chronicler:     Jeg lade disse urter med krefter velstand, vekst, flaks, og suksess og rot ut pest. Som de har stått opp fra jorden, så la overflod økning i mitt liv.
  710.         Chronicler:     You recognize pest as pestilence.
  711. DNA:    And now to poke Google translate for similarities
  712. DNA:    oh I've already found one
  713.         Chronicler:     The other three sides of the pillar have their own runes.
  714.         Saturn Rosewell:        Do I need any tools to rewrite words?
  715.         Chronicler:     So, for this to work, you can have someone make occult education rolls and do the actual 'magic' writing.
  716.         Saturn Rosewell:        ...Ah, that.
  717.         Chronicler:     Ink, crystals or something else.
  718.         Saturn Rosewell:        So it's an occult edu roll AND another object?
  719.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe uses Let Me Help You with That!
  720.         Saturn Rosewell:        Chloe, you don't need to
  721.         Chloe Blanchett:        Now you have two rolls. The second you get +3.
  722.         Saturn Rosewell:        I can get an absurdly high Occult Edu roll
  723.         Chronicler:     You're writing magic, yes - without actually being magical. You'll need someone with the proper knowledge and something to write with.
  724.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((I haven't used the feature in days. Take the two rolls. >.>))
  725.         Sacrama:        Sacrama has the proper knowledge, so that is not a problem!
  726.         Chronicler:     I haven't seen that Wynaut since it was caught.
  727.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Ah, no common language, so I can't))
  728. * Saturn Rosewell is going to tell the Wynaut exactly what to write.
  729.         Chronicler:     The person doing the writing doesn't have to be the one with the language knowledge. Just need knowledge of how the magic works and apply it.
  730. * Saturn Rosewell asks Sacrama to replace the word 'rot' with 'life' and 'pest' with 'healing'. She's going to write them in Kantonese Human.
  731. * Sacrama will be doing the actual writing.
  732.         Sacrama:        BEHOLD. Occult Edu 6d6+5 .
  733. Avara:  do you have something to write in?
  734.         Chronicler:     You'll need something to write with, yes. Crystals can be a supplement.
  735.         Chronicler:     You can spend $100 worth of crystals for each side of the wall.
  736. DNA:    Boo hiss. That question was never answered.
  737. DNA:    Ah well. Not to worry.
  738.         Chronicler:     I did answer it.
  739. Avara:  indeed
  740. Avara:  ink, crystals, etc
  741. DNA:    I asked if I needed it later, after that, and never got an answer.
  742. DNA:    Either way, not to worry.
  743. Avara:  could engraving it into the stone work?
  744. Avara:  i have a spare dagger
  745.         Chronicler:     Chiseling (sp?) it into the rock will take considerable time.
  746. Avara:  'k
  747.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Do we have crystals we can use? I need to be able to re-write some of the words."
  748.         Chronicler:     It's 8-meters of rock and four sides.
  749.         Rochette:       "We got some crystals back in fairview."
  750.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Cool. Do we have one that's worth about $400?"
  751. Domino:         ((I think I have one that is just about right on the money for 400))
  752. Domino:         ((if sheets will ever switch over))
  753.         Rochette:       ((unclaimed has a couple worth 600))
  754. Domino:         ((I am super wrong))
  755. DNA:    (One of those can do, then.)
  756. * Rochette hands over the Aquamarine. "About 200 over the asked price."
  757.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Awesome; thanks." Saturn airwalks back over to the runes, and performs the action, as above.
  758. Rochette must wait 8.775 seconds before it may move again!
  759.         Saturn Rosewell:        After that, she's going to move to one of the other sides.
  760.         Saturn Rosewell:        Would I be able to detect any changes in the flow of aura in the area/water, after I rewrote those 2 words?
  761. Chronicler whispers: You notice that the flow has ceased. Until you finish the runic writing you've ceased the flow of disease, and in-turn, the creatures healing.
  762.         Chronicler:     On the northern side the runes say:
  763.         Chronicler:     Kraft jorden, jeg ber om at dere hjelpe meg. Låne meg dine gaver av overflod og stabilitet til å manifestere velstand og suksess i livet mitt.
  764. * Saturn Rosewell doesn't seem to recognize any of those words... She moves to the east side.
  765.         Chronicler:     The eastern side the runes say:
  766.         Chronicler:     Strøm vann, jeg ber om at dere hjelpe meg. Låne meg dine gaver av intuisjon og innflytelse til å manifestere velstand og suksess i livet mitt.
  767. * Saturn Rosewell doesn't seem to recognize those words either, and moves to the south side.
  768.         Chronicler:     The southern side of the pillar has the most complex runes out of all the sides.
  769.         Chronicler:     They say:
  770.         Chloe Blanchett:        "The more I look at this, the more I wonder if changing it to healing was a good idea... They are two different sentences on each side. Who knows what commands we are giving it."
  771.         Chronicler:     Anledning, arbeid, belønninger jeg ser. Liv, liv, kom til meg. Jeg ønsker velstand. Som jeg vil, så må det bli. Ettersom dette runeis tent, la mitt lys gå ut i universet. La min vilje skje.
  772.         Rochette:       "She's probably trying to figure that out.
  773.         Rochette:       "
  774.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It really might be the safest idea to destroy the pillar."
  775. * Saturn Rosewell was poring over these words intently...
  776.         Saturn Rosewell:        She was close to a break-through, she could feel it...
  777.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((is there anything I can give you a bonus on?))
  778. DNA:    (I don't think so, no.)
  779. * Saturn Rosewell snaps her fingers. She had an idea.
  780.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What is it?"
  781.         Saturn Rosewell:        She asked Sacrama to change the words "gå ut i universet" to, once again in Human Kantonese, "stay confined to this pillar".
  782.         Sacrama:        Behold! Occult Edu 6d6+5 .
  783.         Chronicler:     Sacrama is able to change the words as Saturn demands in the correct language using runes.
  784. Chronicler whispers: As a reminder, unless all the runes are one language, the magic does not work.
  785. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Oh, I didn't know that. So, essentially I'm going to completely rewrite each side?
  786. Chronicler whispers: Yes.
  787.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Hmm... I don't think it's working... Maybe I need to do this differently."
  788.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's try this again."
  789. * Saturn Rosewell moves back to the west side, to start over.
  790.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What do the east and west say? They're both different."
  791.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I can't tell... I only recognize a few of the words. It'd probably be safer just to rewrite the whole thing..."
  792. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Is there something Sacrama or Saturn could perform to make sure the runes are not changed or re-edited later?
  793. Chronicler whispers: Using actual crystal makes it more difficult to change. But there's no way to prevent it from being changed later.
  794.         Chloe Blanchett:        "That might take a lot... but do you think you can create a spring of healing?"
  795.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm going to try..."
  796. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: This is an actual crystal then, right?
  797.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What about the girl?"
  798. Chronicler whispers: Yes.
  799.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I want to try and help her too. I don't want to hurt her."
  800.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What did she tell you?"
  801.         Saturn Rosewell:        "She told me that this pillar is supposed to heal her, by giving her life and draining her of death."
  802. Chronicler whispers: You can have Sacrama rewrite it in a language. Sacrama may not know the language used but knows what/how to write it. The crystal will do most of the work, so you can just establish Sacrama writing it.
  803. * Saturn Rosewell had an idea...
  804.         Saturn Rosewell:        On the west side, Saturn will have Sacrama write the following words:
  805.         Chloe Blanchett:        "So did you change it to drain her life and give her life?"
  806. DNA:    "I'm going to, yes!"
  807.         Saturn Rosewell:        "This pillar and spring are a place of healing, for the curing of diseases and illness. For those who drink this water, their ailments shall be removed and purified."
  808.         Saturn Rosewell:        And she will have Sacrama write it in Pokemon Kantonese.
  809.         Sacrama:        If necessary, behold my 6d6+5 !
  810.         Rochette:       "If you need more materials, let us know.
  811.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Will do."
  812.         Chronicler:     Sacrama is able to write that in runic.
  813.         Saturn Rosewell:        Now for the north side.
  814. Domino:         ((has a gem worth 1500 if needed))
  815.         Saturn Rosewell:        (I don't think I'll need it, but if I do, GM please alert me.)
  816.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Has a 2000))
  817.         Chronicler:     Will do.
  818.         Saturn Rosewell:        "This place is for the healing of souls, for the cleansing of mind and body. For those who rest in this place, their vitality shall be refreshed."
  819.         Saturn Rosewell:        Again, in Pokemon Kantonese.
  820.         Sacrama:        6d6+5 ! Remember, Sacrama is completely erasing and re-writing each side.
  821.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe blanchett considers the runes. With her knowledge, is creating healing from nothing dangerous? Occult
  822.         Chronicler:     Sacrama is able to write the words in runic.
  823. * Saturn Rosewell then moves to the east side, but before she begins...
  824.         Saturn Rosewell:        She calls upward. "Pardon? Kan ik vraag ... Wat is uw naam?"
  825. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "Excuse me? Can I ask... What is your name?"
  826.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Where do the powers from these runes come from? She had to bestow a lot of death before she could be healed. We can't just have healing go both ways. There must be cost."
  827.         Demonic Creature:       Demonic Creature gives a gurgling response, "Alsine Kolstad."
  828.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Dank u, Alsine, voor het praten met mij. Ik hoop dat je terug te krijgen."
  829. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: "Thank you, Alsine, for talking with me. I hope you recover."
  830.         Saturn Rosewell:        Now for the east side.
  831.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe frowned. Perhaps it wouldn't matter at all, a powerless rune would just sit dormant, more than likely.
  832.         Saturn Rosewell:        "This shrine is for the resting of the mind, to mend the broken of heart. For those who respect this place, they shall be becalmed."
  833.         Saturn Rosewell:        And now, finally, the south side. This would be the hardest one of all. Even now, Saturn was struggling to find words.
  834.         Sacrama:        whoops, forgot the rewrite check for the east side:
  835.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Life, death, health, and sickness... This place is a testament to these things. Those with pure motives shall be rewarded, while those who seek calamity shall be punished. This place is the residence of Alsine Kolstad, who remains here to rest in this hallowed place." Again, in Kantonese Pokemon.
  836.         Sacrama:        And now for the last side:
  837.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn takes careful note of a few things: the pillar itself, Alsine, the water, and the written runes, monitoring them for any changes.
  838.         Chronicler:     The runes dim before going out entirely.
  839.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hm...? Why are they not lit...?"
  840.         Chloe Blanchett:        "You didn't answer my question."
  841.         Chronicler:     The once filthy and dark waters run clear and clean. The waves of heat from the western room full of death and disease diminish and the glowing blue-green moss suddenly turn to a purple-red.
  842.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...wait, you were talking to me? I thought you were talking to yourself..."
  843.         Chronicler:     The runes begin to glow again, through now glow a bright violet.
  844.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I was talking to you." Chloe blinked at the runes as the re-appeared.
  845. * Rochette watches the runes cautiously, taking a deep breath.
  846.         Chronicler:     It's 40-after midnight. Would folks enjoy cutting it here?
  847. DNA:    sure, but lemme answer Chloe's question first
  848.         Chronicler:     Plus I get to be a jerk and do a cliff-hanger. \o/
  849. Trulhammaren:   :P
  850.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't know much about runes. But, she was causing the death as a source of power. If you just grant life, where is the life coming from?"
  851. * Trulhammaren is fine with such
  852.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You said something about having to take life, or death, from somewhere else, to give it out. However...is that really accurate?"
  853. Avara:  can we just get a hint as to whether good things or awful things are about to happen?
  854.         Chronicler:     That ruins the point of a cliff hanger.
  855. Avara:  no it does not
  856. Avara:  i didn't ask WHAT things
  857.         Saturn Rosewell:        "This is magic, and magic doesn't always have to follow rules of balance. My intent isn't to generate healing from nowhere, but at the very least...it is different than what it did before."
  858. Avara:  just whether i should look forward with dread or glee
  859.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If you're certain..." That didn't seem to match up with what she knew about magic, but she'd only had a few lessons.
  860.         Chronicler:     I'll keep you guessing.
  861. Avara:  =
  862. Avara:  >=
  863.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If I have made a mistake...then I will fix it. But this is better than what we had before, at least..."
  864.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Or so I hope..."
  865. DNA:    All right, that's my answer. Cash-out time?
  866.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((on that note~))
  867. Avara:  txp?
  868.         Chronicler:     4 TXP.
  869.         Chronicler:     Saving campaign and log~
  870.         Chloe Blanchett:        8.6
  871. Avara:  'k. everyone remember to update your pokemon levels
