  1. -[ 19:54.30 ]- - Nephene finds the time to take a break for once. The lunch rush has been dealt with, and she's sitting on a bench just outside of the Slaking.
  2. -[ 19:55.49 ]- -( Raven ): Raven runs up with a cheeky grin. "NEPHEEEENE! You're taking the day off, NOW!"
  3. -[ 19:55.55 ]- -( Nephene ): "....what."
  4. -[ 19:56.05 ]- -( Nephene ): "But the customers....and dinners...."
  5. -[ 19:56.15 ]- -( Nephene ): "and Claud's going to have to do everything himself. D:"
  6. -[ 19:56.28 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, he'd have Marcel, but still."
  7. -[ 19:56.42 ]- -( Nephene ): "Why am I taking a day off, then?"
  8. -[ 19:57.14 ]- -( Raven ): She tugs on Nephene's arm. "Already dealt with; spoke to Claud about it. Come on, I invited the Fyron girl, Lisa, and Iona too. They are waiting outside the Envy right now!" tugtug
  9. -[ 19:57.51 ]- -( Nephene ): "Wait, what are we even -doing-?"
  10. -[ 19:57.58 ]- - Nephene is tugged away.
  11. -[ 19:58.15 ]- -( Raven ): "Going shopping - then CAMPING!" tuuuug pitiful 8 STR
  12. -[ 19:58.41 ]- -( Nephene ): Neph is surprisingly easy to drag along. She's -confused-.
  13. -[ 19:58.44 ]- -( DamienLunas ): (raven has only 8 str?!)
  14. -[ 19:58.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "Wait, camping?"
  15. -[ 19:58.50 ]- -( Raven ): (yup.)
  16. -[ 19:59.01 ]- -( Nike ): "A camping trip?" Nike parrots, walking in on the two as they rush off, stepping out of the library. "Sorry, Raven. Just wanted to return something before I met you at the shop."
  17. -[ 19:59.04 ]- -( DamienLunas ): (captain of the guard...)
  18. -[ 20:00.08 ]- - @Iona is currently actually *inside* the Envy, rifling through the fabric Henry has on display. :D :D :D
  19. -[ 20:00.14 ]- -( Raven ): "Well, least that was the plan. Just to get out of town for the day, period. I swear all you do is sit around the inn!"
  20. -[ 20:00.23 ]- -( Nephene ): "But it's my job...."
  21. -[ 20:00.36 ]- -( Henry ): It's about midday as the sun shines brightly on the cozy little cottage where Henry both lives and has set up his shop. Another slow, ho-hum day is going by, so he's decided to sweep up a little, and busy himself otherwise cleaning his store. Despite being a simple clothing store, he has a number of tiny gizmos and gadgets set up on shelves. It seems Henry is an avid collector of wind-up
  22. -[ 20:00.36 ]- -( Henry ): toys and the occasional music box and doesn't mind displaying it. He also has a tripod in the corner on which rests his camera, and a small changing area barred off with a thick privacy curtain. Odds and ends lay around the rest of his shop, knitting needles, sewing needles, his loom, various tools of the trade as well as several columns of fabric leaning against one wall. A few male and
  23. -[ 20:00.37 ]- -( Henry ): female outfits hang on the walls and in the front windows on display as Henry has no mannequins to dress. He spares a moment every now and then to make sure Iona isn't ruining everything.
  24. -[ 20:01.06 ]- -( Henry ): (Did all of that go through?)
  25. -[ 20:01.12 ]- -( Raven ): (looks like it.)
  26. -[ 20:01.12 ]- -( Nephene ): (( Yes. ))
  27. -[ 20:01.23 ]- - Nephene looks to Nike. "Why wasn't I told about this before now?"
  28. -[ 20:01.35 ]- - LISA Loafs around, Tori sitting on the brim of her hat dozing. A few of her packs and a bedroll sit next to her. "Hmmm. Do I want a new hat...I have this fancy feather. I think I deserve a new hat...But I haven't sold anything in a while.."
  29. -[ 20:01.44 ]- -( Raven ): "Because it was supposed to be a surprise!"
  30. -[ 20:02.08 ]- -( @Iona ): "Hey, Mr. Henryyyy~ Do you have anything in waterproof because it rains a lot here."
  31. -[ 20:02.09 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, you surprised me! But...."
  32. -[ 20:02.13 ]- - - - - - -[ Mode ]- -[ @Iona sets: +o Paradox ]-
  33. -[ 20:02.50 ]- - Nike shrugs. "I would have pitched it earlier, but Raven made me promise. And...well, Captain's orders."
  34. -[ 20:03.18 ]- -( Raven ): "Damn straight!" She pushes the door open to the envy, and pulls Nephene on in.
  35. -[ 20:03.34 ]- - Nephene sighs, and is dragged in. Why couldn't things just be normal for once?
  36. -[ 20:04.00 ]- -( Henry ): "The better materials require a special treating, but... Well, I'm sure I could find SOMETHING..." he starts looking through his fabrics.
  37. -[ 20:04.21 ]- -( @Iona ): "Well, as long as it doesn't make my skin all gross and green if it gets wet~"
  38. -[ 20:04.40 ]- -( Nephene ): "Hello, Henry. I didn't expect to be here today."
  39. -[ 20:05.16 ]- -( Raven ): "Hey, Henry," she says, finally letting Nephene go. "Oh - woah you've done a lot with the place since I last checked in..."
  40. -[ 20:05.21 ]- -( LISA ): "Ohoh, Henry! While you are looking around I have that weird feather! I was thinking of treating myself to something new and fancy~ Any thoughts on what to do with it?"
  41. -[ 20:05.39 ]- - @Iona grabs onto Henry's arm. She was here first. >:
  42. -[ 20:05.43 ]- -( Henry ): "Er, I certainly hope that wouldn't be the case. ...Hm? Oh! Hello, everyone! I didn't expect so many customers at once."
  43. -[ 20:06.25 ]- -( Nike ): "Captain's orders," Nike mentions with a shrug.
  44. -[ 20:07.03 ]- -( Nephene ): "I am so lost."
  45. -[ 20:07.49 ]- -( Raven ): She browses the knick knacks and music boxes curiously, "See you're branchin' out from just cloths and photos."
  46. -[ 20:07.55 ]- -( Henry ): He looks genuinely surprised but thinks, wiggling his arm a bit. "Just a moment, Iona. I think I could make a very fine raincoat for you given some time..."
  47. -[ 20:08.13 ]- - LISA Grins at the other girls "Do we have a spot to go to or are we going to explore~"
  48. -[ 20:08.14 ]- - Nephene wanders over to Nike to finally catch a breath. "This usually isn't my idea of a day off."
  49. -[ 20:08.31 ]- -( Henry ): "Oh? Those aren't for sale, Raven." he smiles. "I collect those and thought they'd spruce the shop up a little."
  50. -[ 20:08.42 ]- -( @Iona ): "That would be neat!" Satisfied by the offer, Iona relaxes the DEATHGRIP.
  51. -[ 20:09.32 ]- -( Henry ): "Lisa, I imagine I could make a stylish hat for you with that feather if you wished. And the rest of you?"
  52. -[ 20:09.48 ]- -( Raven ): "I had a spot in mind, a clearing by the river over in the Alizarin Forest. Was open enough to just stay out in the open if the weather stays good, but close enough to foilage to make a little shelter if need be."
  53. -[ 20:10.02 ]- -( Nike ): "Well, it might be fun. Just us going out camping in the wilderness..." Nike looks to Nephene. "Things get too weird, I don't see it too hard to sneak you back in."
  54. -[ 20:10.16 ]- -( Henry ): "Ah, a camping trip?"
  55. -[ 20:10.17 ]- -( Nephene ): "I've never been camping before."
  56. -[ 20:10.25 ]- -( Raven ): She stops touching and messing with them when Henry makes it clear they aren't for sale, just browsing around curiously.
  57. -[ 20:10.31 ]- -( @Iona ): "Neither have I! What's it's like?"
  58. -[ 20:10.31 ]- -( Nephene ): "Closest I've been to doing that is staying in the guard tower."
  59. -[ 20:11.11 ]- -( Nike ): "Well, I can help out if you need. I'm sure Raven can as well."
  60. -[ 20:11.38 ]- -( LISA ): "It isn't too bad. Before I moved here I camped around. And Henry that would be awesome! I need a new hat."
  61. -[ 20:11.41 ]- -( Henry ): "Oh, but feel free to wind them up if you wish, as long as you're very careful, you don't set off too many at once, and your name isn't Ricki."
  62. -[ 20:11.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "Wouldn't I need anything from back home?"
  63. -[ 20:12.01 ]- -( Nephene ): (( Zing. ))
  64. -[ 20:12.27 ]- -( Nike ): "Maybe just a snack and a change of clothes. I have a feeling Raven's got most of it covered."
  65. -[ 20:12.32 ]- - Nike then approaches Henry. "So, I've been looking for something casual and comfortable. Something that'll work for camping. And town walking."
  66. -[ 20:12.47 ]- -( Raven ): "Well...I guess you might wanna change into something more practical, but huh...how to describe it..." she paruses the clothing selection as she thinks. "It's just a good excuse to get away from things for a day."
  67. -[ 20:12.52 ]- - Henry has a look over Nike for a moment.
  68. -[ 20:13.02 ]- -( Nephene ): "I suppose. I did get a really nice dress from here a few weeks ago."
  69. -[ 20:13.48 ]- -( Henry ): "I think I can make something workable..."
  70. -[ 20:15.15 ]- -( Nike ): "Oh, something I can slip my armour over in case something happens, like if bandits attacked again."
  71. -[ 20:15.15 ]- - @Iona goes back to examining the dresses on display.
  72. -[ 20:15.15 ]- -( Henry ): "Okay, so a nice raincoat, some casual clothes suitable for camping, a lovely feathered hat..."
  73. -[ 20:15.46 ]- -( Henry ): "Were there any other orders while I'm getting things ready?" he says, gathering his materials.
  74. -[ 20:15.54 ]- -( Henry ): "May I see that feather, Lisa?"
  75. -[ 20:15.59 ]- -( Raven ): "I can't really think of anything else to really prep for; I already got some food ready and such. It's been pretty warm lately.." She examines a dress curiously.
  76. -[ 20:16.40 ]- - LISA Beams at Henry. "No rush on the hat! Just been meaning to talk to you about it for a while."
  77. -[ 20:16.49 ]- -( Henry ): Henry's dresses seem to have a bit of a liberal flair to them.
  78. -[ 20:16.57 ]- -( Henry ): "Of course, of course..."
  79. -[ 20:16.57 ]- - Nephene doesn't want to overwhlem Henry.
  80. -[ 20:18.06 ]- - Nike looks over the store floor. "You have any floor models I can take now? Just to lighten the burden?"
  81. -[ 20:18.16 ]- -( Raven ): She shuffles through a few of them curiously as Henry is barraged with requests.
  82. -[ 20:18.48 ]- -( Henry ): "I actually prefer to custom-tailor my clothes for the customer! But for you, let's see..."
  83. -[ 20:19.40 ]- - - - - - -[ Join ]- -[ Botherer (Botherer@sux-8C4833F1.nycmny.fios.verizon.net) entered #OranSquare ]- -[ Clones: 0 ]-
  84. -[ 20:20.00 ]- -( Henry ): He begins taking a few things off of display. "You'll need something with long sleeves and proper pants to avoid scratching yourself on thorns, not too warm because of summer but warm enough for fall as well..."
  85. -[ 20:21.10 ]- -( LISA ): "Hmmm~ Oh we actually have people who can cook with us! I don't have to just heat up beans any more!"
  86. -[ 20:21.21 ]- -( Raven ): Shuffle shuffle shuffle, "I got something for you to take a look at myself, Henry, but that can wait for another day.." She goes back to mess with the music boxes and such.
  87. -[ 20:21.25 ]- -( Nephene ): "For some value of "cook," really."
  88. -[ 20:21.44 ]- -( @Iona ): "I can cook!"
  89. -[ 20:21.51 ]- -( @Iona ): "I'm good at it, too."
  90. -[ 20:22.13 ]- - Nephene halts as soon as she hears a music box play.
  91. -[ 20:22.40 ]- -( LISA ): "Hehehe, I usually have Tori tell me when its done."
  92. -[ 20:22.51 ]- -( Raven ): Raven laughs. "Well by food I meant some canned, cookable provisions, some bread, and meat off a Stanler I gunned down this morning. But yeah, could be worse."
  93. -[ 20:22.58 ]- -( Nike ): "I just don't want to impose, is all, Henry..."
  94. -[ 20:23.15 ]- -( Henry ): "Not at all, not at all."
  95. -[ 20:23.18 ]- -( Nephene ): "What do you cook, Iona?"
  96. -[ 20:23.24 ]- -( Raven ): She picks up a music box curiously and twists it up.
  97. -[ 20:23.51 ]- -( @Iona ): "Lots of things. Kelp souffle, kelp gratin, kelp au vin, kelp et pommes frites..."
  98. -[ 20:24.22 ]- -( Henry ): "And of course, Raven. Now let's see..." He ends up selecting a nice, powder blue light jacket with long sleeves, with a simple white shirt to go underneath, and hardy-looking long-brown pants before displaying them to Nike. "Wouldn't recommend wearing armor over the jacket, but how does this look?"
  99. -[ 20:24.27 ]- -( Nephene ): "....only kelp?"
  100. -[ 20:25.19 ]- -( @Iona ): "Nothing wrong with kelp, is there?"
  101. -[ 20:25.38 ]- -( Henry ): (What color is Lisa's hair?)
  102. -[ 20:25.39 ]- -( LISA ): "What does kelp taste like?"
  103. -[ 20:25.57 ]- - Nike nods approvingly, and intriguingly. "It's good." She then looks over her shoulder to Iona. "We are going to be near fresh water," she notes, as a possible problem with a huge kelp order.
  104. -[ 20:25.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "Not on its own. I just figure it might be a little tiring to have all the time."
  105. -[ 20:26.02 ]- -( LISA ): (She is a dirty blonde, a few shades lighter than brown more or less.)
  106. -[ 20:26.45 ]- -( @Iona ): "Kelp tastes like kelp." Iona stares at Lisa oddly.
  107. -[ 20:27.41 ]- - LISA Stares back "Well...Does it taste salty? Or sweet? Is it crunchy or slimey?"
  108. -[ 20:27.54 ]- -( Henry ): He nods curtly, happy that Nike approves of the outfit and offers it to her for her to try on before going back to his sewing materials.
  109. -[ 20:28.02 ]- - - - - - -[ Nick ]- -[ mons|baking is now Mons ]-
  110. -[ 20:28.23 ]- -( Raven ): "Can't imagine it's worse then caterpie," she says, toying with all the little nifty mechanical things.
  111. -[ 20:28.35 ]- -( Henry ): And in moments he's sewing together a cute but bulky yellow raincoat for Iona.
  112. -[ 20:28.41 ]- - Nike nods to Henry, and excuses herself to try on the clothes.
  113. -[ 20:29.04 ]- - @Iona reaches in her pocket and produces a bit of dried seaweed. "You could always try it, I guess."
  114. -[ 20:29.35 ]- -( Henry ): His fingers seem to move quickly for his work despite all appearances elsewhere.
  115. -[ 20:30.05 ]- -( Henry ): And soon, he's got a nice, slick raincoat ready. Wow, that was fast.
  116. -[ 20:30.09 ]- -( Henry ): "Something like this, Iona?"
  117. -[ 20:30.13 ]- -( @Iona ): ":D"
  118. -[ 20:30.16 ]- -( @Iona ): "Awesome!"
  119. -[ 20:30.25 ]- -( Henry ): He even fashioned a hat to go with it.
  120. -[ 20:30.29 ]- -( @Iona ): "How much?"
  121. -[ 20:31.11 ]- -( Henry ): "Let's see... five hundred should suffice I think."
  122. -[ 20:32.19 ]- - @Iona happily pays out the money and pulls the raincoat on. Yellow :D
  123. -[ 20:32.37 ]- - Nike soon leaves the change stall, her clothes slung over her arm, now wearing the outfit Henry picked out for her, although she's blushing a little, embarrassed; it fit, but the jacket and the shirt were a bit snug..."How much for the ensemble? And a fitting to go with it?"
  124. -[ 20:32.50 ]- -( Henry ): http://www.corbisimages.com/images/42-21875294.jpg?size=67&uid=643a415d-0612-4d5f-bed9-2ba1c394e0ee More or less what he made.
  125. -[ 20:33.35 ]- -( Nephene ): "It looks great, Iona."
  126. -[ 20:34.03 ]- -( Henry ): He nods approvingly at Nike's clothes. "All together, that's also going to be five hundred. I'll throw in the fitting for free."
  127. -[ 20:35.37 ]- - Nike takes out her coin pouch, and fishes out a few large coins to help get to 500. "Deal. Suppose I should go back and change. I'll be back tomorrow to pick this up?"
  128. -[ 20:35.47 ]- - @Iona sets her Shellder on her head, and puts the hat over him. His tongue still sticks out under the brim, though.
  129. -[ 20:36.04 ]- -( Henry ): "You could even come back tonight if you like, it shouldn't take long and I haven't had much work to do today."
  130. -[ 20:36.14 ]- -( Raven ): "Henry's work always looks great," she says, putting up the music box.
  131. -[ 20:36.25 ]- -( Henry ): He takes the money with a smile. "I thank you very much for the business! And now for Lisa's hat..."
  132. -[ 20:37.11 ]- -( Henry ): Again he has a seat, and again his fingers fly. He takes momentarily glances at Lisa, hmming.
  133. -[ 20:37.27 ]- -( Henry ): "For you, I think I'll try something a little different, but of course I can always change it if you don't approve."
  134. -[ 20:37.57 ]- - LISA Beams at Henry. Only peeking at him a little.
  135. -[ 20:38.46 ]- -( Henry ): (What color you want?)
  136. -[ 20:39.52 ]- -( LISA ): (Shit suprise me. It is a blue feather of ICE, and LOVE. She likes dark blues and stuff.)
  137. -[ 20:40.08 ]- -( Raven ): "My own request is a bit...different, Henry. I got a piece I need to accessorize, or something. Needs some additions - do you have anything in mind you'd like, Nephene?"
  138. -[ 20:40.30 ]- -( Nephene ): "I....don't know. I liked what I got here last time."
  139. -[ 20:40.50 ]- -( Nephene ): She shrugs. "I have a lot of work clothes, and I don't know if Henry's seen what I wear for formal occasions."
  140. -[ 20:41.07 ]- -( Henry ): He seems to be crafting what looks to be a fedora somewhere on the bluish side of dark purple, but it has a ridiculously wide headband, and a zebra-print band around the top in which he sticks the articuno feather and fastens it.
  141. -[ 20:41.44 ]- - @Iona is busily running circles around everyone with her arms stuck straight out behind her. Bird run~
  142. -[ 20:41.52 ]- -( DamienLunas ): (is lisa about to get a pimp hat)
  143. -[ 20:41.52 ]- -( Henry ): "Oh?"
  144. -[ 20:41.56 ]- -( Henry ): (She is)
  145. -[ 20:42.18 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's a style not from around here. Very eastern."
  146. -[ 20:42.31 ]- -( DamienLunas ): (the pimpest hat ever)
  147. -[ 20:42.31 ]- -( Raven ): (oh silly Iona.)
  148. -[ 20:42.52 ]- -( Henry ): "I always like to see new styles. I'd like to see some of your formal wear sometime... but what did you have for me to work on, Raven?"
  149. -[ 20:43.28 ]- - Henry eventually finishes the hat and presents it to Lisa.
  150. -[ 20:43.42 ]- -( Nike ): "You got my attention. I'd like to see it, too," says Nike, stepping out of the changing stall, back in her regular clothes.
  151. -[ 20:44.22 ]- - @Iona eventually skids to a halt when she's satisfied the raincoat won't hinder her movement and/or she's getting dizzy.
  152. -[ 20:44.32 ]- -( Nephene ): "I was wearing one of them during the festival."
  153. -[ 20:44.33 ]- - Henry is just glad Iona didn't wreck his shop.
  154. -[ 20:44.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "I'd have to go back into my room to get it, though."
  155. -[ 20:45.03 ]- -( Henry ): "Do you like it? Both of you, I mean." he asks both Lisa and Iona.
  156. -[ 20:45.14 ]- - LISA Grins and puts it on "This is soo cool! Thank you Henry~"
  157. -[ 20:45.29 ]- -( Raven ): "Uh..." She shuffles through her a backpack she was carrying suspiciously as she walks over to Henry's work desk. "It...could use some additions to make an outfit...it's a bit incomplete."
  158. -[ 20:45.43 ]- -( Henry ): "Of course! It's a bit of an unusual style but I had a feeling it'd look fabulous on you."
  159. -[ 20:45.45 ]- - - - - - -[ Nick ]- -[ LISA is now BigPimpinLisa ]-
  160. -[ 20:45.45 ]- - Nephene raises an eyebrow.
  161. -[ 20:45.58 ]- - Henry then looks over to Raven and heads to his desk.
  162. -[ 20:46.06 ]- -( Henry ): "Well, let's see it."
  163. -[ 20:46.39 ]- - Nike approaches Lisa, looks her over, then looks at Iona. To both, she flashes the same thumbs up of approval.
  164. -[ 20:47.49 ]- -( Raven ): She pulls out the two...exotic pieces, and puts them down. "I need you to make something to add to this to make it something I could actually wear in public. Don't need it done right away though."
  165. -[ 20:48.09 ]- -( Henry ): (I could make it into a +charisma piece for more monies but then you get stupidly expensive hat versus mundane stuff)
  166. -[ 20:48.09 ]- -( Henry ): (Hm)
  167. -[ 20:48.36 ]- -( Henry ): (You know what?)
  168. -[ 20:48.57 ]- -( Henry ): (Beard, make that a +4 Charisma bonus daily hat, I'll cover the rest of the cost)
  169. -[ 20:49.02 ]- -( Henry ): (I can't resist)
  170. -[ 20:49.08 ]- -( BigPimpinLisa ): (Ahahahah.)
  171. -[ 20:49.10 ]- -( Henry ): "And that hat will be... 380, let's call it."
  172. -[ 20:49.28 ]- - Henry looks over the pieces.
  173. -[ 20:49.44 ]- -( Henry ): (How exotic are we talking here?)
  174. -[ 20:50.43 ]- -( Nephene ): "I can go get it real quick, if no one minds."
  175. -[ 20:51.00 ]- -( BigPimpinLisa ): "Oh really?! Awsome!" digs through her little money pouch and counts it out, offering it to Henry. "Feel free to stop in the shop any time, I'll even give you a discount~"
  176. -[ 20:51.37 ]- -( Henry ): "Of course I will! And thank you!"
  177. -[ 20:52.09 ]- - Nephene slips out of the Envy for a minute.
  178. -[ 20:52.31 ]- -( Raven ): It looks closer to a bathing suit then a piece of formal attire. Skirt's a bit too short, the top isn't much better. Seem to be composed of more tribal materials.
  179. -[ 20:52.31 ]- -( Henry ): "I'll be here all day, Nephene, so I don't mind at all." he smiles, studying the things Raven brought.
  180. -[ 20:52.31 ]- -( Raven ): She seems rather intent on not letting the others see it.
  181. -[ 20:52.31 ]- -( Henry ): "Interesting... I sense these have a little history to them?"
  182. -[ 20:52.38 ]- -( Henry ): "I'll certainly see what I can do."
  183. -[ 20:52.59 ]- - Nike stands off to the side, letting Raven have her privacy with the special items.
  184. -[ 20:53.37 ]- -( Henry ): "But for the record, I don't think you'd look bad at all in this."
  185. -[ 20:54.08 ]- -( Henry ): "Ah, but the customer is always right, as they say."
  186. -[ 20:54.09 ]- -( Raven ): "You could say that, yeah..," she shuffles around. "And that is so notthe problem, Henry."
  187. -[ 20:54.10 ]- - Henry laughs a little. "Sorry, sorry."
  188. -[ 20:54.21 ]- -( Nephene ): She returns shortly after with the item in question, still on the hanger.
  189. -[ 20:54.35 ]- -( Henry ): "I'll fix this up for you, no problem."
  190. -[ 20:54.36 ]- - Henry has a look over at the item.
  191. -[ 20:55.22 ]- -( Nike ): As does Nike.
  192. -[ 20:55.23 ]- -( Nephene ): It's a long, sleeveless cheongsam, woven almost entirely of blue silk. Large leg slits of the sides carry themselves up to the waist, and a gold-threaded Rayquaza design spirals up the body.
  193. -[ 20:55.40 ]- -( Henry ): "Ah, that's-"
  194. -[ 20:55.56 ]- -( Henry ): "Excellent taste."
  195. -[ 20:56.07 ]- - @Iona just O:s
  196. -[ 20:56.25 ]- -( Raven ): "Was curious if you could just make a longer blouse or something to go over the bottom, and maybe a vest thing for the - oh wow that is a nice dress D:."
  197. -[ 20:57.24 ]- - Nike smiles and nods, liking it as well.
  198. -[ 20:57.33 ]- - Henry nods approvingly and turns back to Raven's request.
  199. -[ 20:57.34 ]- - BigPimpinLisa Whistles at the dress.
  200. -[ 20:57.50 ]- -( Nephene ): "It was a gift. I can leave it here for a bit if you want to study it."
  201. -[ 20:57.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "I'd just rather leave it unmodified."
  202. -[ 20:58.28 ]- -( Henry ): "I would like to, of course. Something like that... That's a master's work. I have to wonder where you got such a thing..."
  203. -[ 20:59.09 ]- -( Henry ): "And I'll certainly take that in mind, Raven."
  204. -[ 20:59.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's a modernized version of the tradition clothing of an eastern land, where the Flying Swellow style originated."
  205. -[ 21:02.45 ]- -( Henry ): He takes out a box and discreetly moves the outfit you gave him into it, Raven.
  206. -[ 21:02.59 ]- -( Henry ): "I'll have this ready for you soon, for certain.
  207. -[ 21:04.15 ]- -( Raven ): "Thanks Henry," she says with a nod. "Now...if we're done here, I think we got a bit of a hike ahead of us, ladies."
  208. -[ 21:05.08 ]- -( Henry ): "Well then, the lot of you have fun, now! Thanks for stopping by."
  209. -[ 21:05.12 ]- - Nike pushes herself off the wall, and gives a curt nod to Henry. "Just drop it by the Fyron house when it's ready. We'll be seeing you around."
  210. -[ 21:05.28 ]- -( Nephene ): "I'll pick it up when you're done, Henry. Possibly tomorrow, when we get back?"
  211. -[ 21:05.31 ]- -( Henry ): "Of course."
  212. -[ 21:05.53 ]- -( Henry ): "That'll be fine."
  213. -[ 21:06.04 ]- -( Nephene ): "Hopefully you get some inspiration from it."
  214. -[ 21:07.23 ]- -( Raven ): She gives Henry a last wave goodbye and heads outside, checking over everything in the rather bulky bag she's carrying. "Let's see..."
  215. -[ 21:07.23 ]- -( Henry ): "Yes, I appreciate the opportunity a lot!"

  224. -[ 21:08.24 ]- - Nephene looks to Nike. "What should I expect on this little trip, then?"
  225. -[ 21:08.33 ]- -( Nephene ): "I probably should bring Amon and Karkata along...."
  226. -[ 21:08.40 ]- -( Raven ): "Foodstuffs, cooking supplies, bedrolls...yup, think we're good."
  227. -[ 21:08.41 ]- - @Iona salutes - and Pekka waves his tongue - before she heads out.
  228. -[ 21:09.34 ]- -( Henry ): Ferdinand, Henry's Shellos, also waves a fin. Burble!

  234. -[ 21:11.51 ]- - @Iona burbles back, then dashes to keep up with the others.
  235. -[ 21:12.16 ]- -( Nephene ): "Ready as I'll ever be, I guess. I hope Claud's doing okay by himself."
  236. -[ 21:12.45 ]- -( Nike ): "Just a second." Nike releases Surt, and mounts up. She then looks to Nephene. "Well, as for what to expect...just be ready to get a little scratched, see a little wildlife, and take in the mountain air."
  237. -[ 21:14.08 ]- -( Nephene ): "Scratches are no problem. We should be able to take care of most things, even if it's by numbers alone."
  238. -[ 21:14.16 ]- -( Raven ): "We aren't going anywhere tooextreme," she says, stolling toward the border of town. "Just following the river through the Alizarin Forest till we hit a good spot. Nothin' like scaling Mount Amaranth. That's for another day!"
  239. -[ 21:14.36 ]- -( Raven ): "And don't worry about Claud! He'll be fine," she says confidently
  240. -[ 21:14.36 ]- -( Nephene ): "The hot springs on the mountain really are quite nice, though...."
  241. -[ 21:15.22 ]- -( @Iona ): "H-hot springs?"
  242. -[ 21:15.27 ]- -( Nike ): "A river campsite is a good place to start for new campers, though," Nike agrees. "It's nice, cool, and rather open. Makes for a much more comfortable place to stop."
  243. -[ 21:17.14 ]- -( Raven ): "I...didn't consider the hot springs...I'll keep that in mind for next time, or maybe on the way back, we'll see!"
  244. -[ 21:18.19 ]- -( Nephene ): "Yep. Have you never been there?"
  245. -[ 21:18.55 ]- -( Raven ): "Nope, have not."

  266. -[ 21:25.26 ]- -( Nephene ): "We shouldn't run into anything too dangerous, right?" Nephene says, totally not jinxing the group.
  267. -[ 21:25.44 ]- - @Iona amuses herself on the way by taking out a pink conch-shell and blowing on it.
  268. -[ 21:25.44 ]- -( @Iona ): 1d100 hi dox
  269. -[ 21:25.44 ]- -( Nike ): "The cool river is a better idea." Nike snaps the reins, urging Surt to up his trot.
  270. -[ 21:25.44 ]- -( @Iona ): oh :c

  273. -[ 21:26.23 ]- -( Raven ): She leads them upstream to the river, planning to make a fairly good hike through the wilds till they reach the clearing she described earlier.
  274. -[ 21:28.28 ]- -( Raven ): It's a good bit later in the afternoon, now dusk, when they get to it - it's as she described. Little patch near the river with less trees, but enough to make a makeshift shelter if needbe. She puts her bag down. "Annnd here we are!"
  275. -[ 21:29.08 ]- - Nephene sits on a nearby log, tired. She hasn't hiked in a very long time.

  299. -[ 21:34.48 ]- - @Iona eventually lets all of the babbywags join up with their babbywag family.
  300. -[ 21:34.51 ]- -( Nike ): As Nike attempts to urge the Poliwag back into the river, she looks around, as if checking for witnesses who'd care, and picks up one of them in particular, the words "I'm taking it home with me" running through her head.
  301. -[ 21:34.52 ]- - @Iona waves bye~
  302. -[ 21:35.25 ]- - Nephene helps Iona with the babbywags.
  303. -[ 21:35.42 ]- -( Nephene ): "How did that even...?"
  304. -[ 21:36.06 ]- -( Raven ): She scurries up a tree and gets to work on making a makeshift shelter from branches and foilage. "Anyway, I got some cookin' supplies and food in that bag, if you guys wanna get a fire goin."
  305. -[ 21:36.35 ]- -( @Paradox ): ( I read that as 'fire groin')
  306. -[ 21:36.57 ]- -( @Iona ): "It was Pelippers, I told you."

  308. -[ 21:37.00 ]- -( @Iona ): "Moon Pelippers."
  309. -[ 21:37.07 ]- -( Nike ): "On it," Nike immediately interrupts. Now that the Poliwag rain has stopped, she lets Surt back out of his Pokeball again. "Sorry, old friend. Just had to make sure no one got hurt."

  318. -[ 21:38.20 ]- -( Nike ): "Perhaps you'd like to help me investigate..." Nike spread her arms, letting the baby Poliwag return to its family, and gesturing to the group still getting to the water.
  319. -[ 21:38.47 ]- -( Raven ): She cuts down a low hanging branch, and moves it around a bit. "Well, I'm just trying to get a little makeshift tent of sorts up in case it actually does rain. Wouldn't hurt. Could use some help moving the larger branches around I guess."
  320. -[ 21:38.57 ]- - @Iona suddenly changes her mind and scoops one up. She can't resist the adorable ;_;

  330. -[ 21:40.59 ]- - @Iona eyes Surt suspiciously. "Could you um help me with the fire thing?"
  331. -[ 21:41.12 ]- -( Raven ): "Yeah they are kinda cute, the poliwogs. But I'm a bit picky with my animal deputies. Heh." She continues falling some low hanging branches.
  332. -[ 21:42.19 ]- -( Nike ): Surt snorts, and the flame of its mane lights up. He bows his head, as though asking for Iona to light something with it.
  333. -[ 21:43.06 ]- -( Nike ): Nike, meanwhile, proceeds to walk further upstream, trying to keep an eye out for something strange, and will herself to be sensitive to any wind.
  334. -[ 21:43.20 ]- - @Iona hastily gathers some firewood with perhaps someone else's help?
  335. -[ 21:43.26 ]- - Nephene lets out Amon before following Nike.
  336. -[ 21:44.24 ]- -( Raven ): "There we go!" she says as she finishes up her work, with a grin and an affirmative nod. "Enough room for about 5 people, solid enough to last a few days, and descrete!" It's a tent of sorts composed of branches leaned against a few larger trees.
  337. -[ 21:44.36 ]- -( Nephene ): Both rely on their natural sixth senses, pointing out ambushes or friendly Pokemon alike.
  338. -[ 21:44.53 ]- -( Nephene ): (( Reaching out with THE POWER OF AURA. ))
  339. -[ 21:45.07 ]- - @Iona eventually gets a campfire going, and starts cooking a random combination of kelp and whatever she can loot from the other girls' packs.
  340. -[ 21:46.40 ]- - Nike had brought along a few fruits, legumes, and breads, as well as a few pieces of dried meat, that would keep on a long hike.
  341. -[ 21:46.49 ]- -( Raven ): Raven scurries to wash her hands off in the stream, but Iona finds a few cans of beans, some bread, and some venisen steaks in a little icebox. Along with some basic cooking supplies, frying pan, pot, some utensils and cups.
  342. -[ 21:47.18 ]- - @Iona makes kelp an' deer an' beeeeans

  354. -[ 21:55.09 ]- -( Raven ): "This honestly your first time camping, Iona? I got the sense you literally camped on the beach every night..."
  355. -[ 21:55.16 ]- - @Iona happily stirs the concotion she's trown together in the pot. :D
  356. -[ 21:55.20 ]- -( @Iona ): "Huh? Oh, but that doesn't really count."
  357. -[ 21:57.32 ]- -( Raven ): "Why not? Same thing to me it seems, only you don't have as much room to avoid gettin' rained on. Well, guess that would explain the rain coat purchase."
  358. -[ 21:57.53 ]- -( @Iona ): "Because that's where I live~"

  360. -[ 21:58.39 ]- -( Nephene ): "Let's see...."
  361. -[ 21:58.41 ]- -( Raven ): "Hmmm, seems semantical then," she gets to sizzlin' some steaks.
  362. -[ 21:59.53 ]- -( @Iona ): "What's semantic?"
  363. -[ 21:59.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "Not really anything so far. A couple of Hoothoot in trees, the occasional Poliwag in the river."
  364. -[ 22:00.28 ]- -( Nephene ): "Nothing darkened out there."
  365. -[ 22:00.37 ]- -( Raven ): "Means we're arguin' over the name for something. Like, I'd consider you living on the beach camping, you don't cause you live there."
  366. -[ 22:01.12 ]- -( @Iona ): "Ohh, I see."
  367. -[ 22:01.19 ]- - Nike comes to a stop, and closes her eyes. She focuses for a few seconds, before looking to Nephene. "Well, the wind's a bit strong tonight. Not unreasonable that maybe something whipped up the Poliwag and tossed them. It's happened before."
  368. -[ 22:01.40 ]- -( Nephene ): "Any chance of storming?"
  369. -[ 22:01.41 ]- - @Iona grumbles something about moon pelipper :c
  370. -[ 22:02.14 ]- -( Raven ): "What makes you think they were pelippers? I didn't see anything but clouds and falling poliwags."
  371. -[ 22:03.06 ]- -( @Iona ): "Well, because Pelippers have huge pouches to hold a lot of poliwags?"
  372. -[ 22:03.38 ]- -( Nike ): "Hmm...no, the clouds aren't right. Overcast, maybe a rough wind, but no rainfall. That's my bet, anyway. Sorry to drag you two out here; shall we head back?"
  373. -[ 22:04.10 ]- -( Nephene ): "I mean, if something could carry that many Poliwag, I'm afraid we might have chosen a bad day to come up here."
  374. -[ 22:04.29 ]- -( Raven ): "Coulda been anything with large 'pockets' though. Hope it wasn't a dragon though, that'd put an end to this trip pretty quick if it swung back around."
  375. -[ 22:04.45 ]- -( @Iona ): "Well, any way, I don't see or hear anything~"
  376. -[ 22:04.54 ]- -( Nephene ): <The silence here might make it worth the stay, however,> Amon notes. <at least until the fish girl opens her mouth again.>
  377. -[ 22:04.55 ]- - @Iona probably wouldn't anyway, though :3c
  378. -[ 22:05.17 ]- -( Raven ): "Either way what kind of sicko drops these cute little guys like that," she patpats one of the ones in Iona's hat.
  379. -[ 22:06.12 ]- -( Nike ): "Hmm...well, at the very least, the weather's good enough to camp in. I can stay up a while to keep watch."
  380. -[ 22:06.18 ]- -( @Iona ): It blows a bubble at her. :O@
  381. -[ 22:06.49 ]- -( Nephene ): "I hope it stays that way, then. Let's head back."
  382. -[ 22:07.22 ]- - Nike nods, and lets Nephene and Amon lead the way back. By the time they return, they'll have definitely worked up an appetite.
  383. -[ 22:08.36 ]- -( Raven ): "Bout time you two got done scootin' around. See anything of interest?"
  384. -[ 22:09.35 ]- -( Nephene ): "Not a whole lot. Everything seemed normal in the forest, really."
  385. -[ 22:10.18 ]- -( @Iona ): "I made..." Iona glances in the pot. "...Kelp surprise!"
  386. -[ 22:10.32 ]- -( Raven ): "Well come on, take a seat," she beckons toward the fire. "Food's coming along good."
  387. -[ 22:10.34 ]- -( Nike ): "I still say it was a wind that kicked the up, but it seems to have passed." Nike takes a deep breath of the food. "Mm...smells nice, Iona."
  388. -[ 22:11.38 ]- -( Raven ): "Still hesitant about takin' a trip away from the inn every now and then, Nephene?" she flips the steaks, and gets some little metal bowls and plates from her bag.
  389. -[ 22:11.39 ]- - @Iona beams. :'D
  390. -[ 22:12.00 ]- -( Nephene ): "I might consider it if my brother can fill in."
  391. -[ 22:12.30 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's just....a lot of work to do alone."
  392. -[ 22:13.31 ]- -( Nike ): "This was a great idea, Raven." Nike runs a hand through her hair, holding out the other to take one of the bowls. "Very different from a night in town."
  393. -[ 22:13.44 ]- -( Raven ): "You should have a bit more faith in him then that. He's proven himself reliable in a pinch before."
  394. -[ 22:13.47 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, we did get a little of both."
  395. -[ 22:14.09 ]- -( Nephene ): "Oh, I know. I feel bad for kinda being the source of that extra work, though."
  396. -[ 22:14.20 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's just, poof, I'm off to have fun while he has to do everything."
  397. -[ 22:14.31 ]- -( @Iona ): "Well, does he ever poof?"
  398. -[ 22:15.10 ]- -( Nike ): "Exactly. If you get to take a vacation, he should feel free to take one as well, right? You have Amon to help you out in a pinch, I'm guessing."
  399. -[ 22:15.12 ]- -( Nephene ): "Occasionally. Marcel takes over for him most of the time, though."
  400. -[ 22:15.25 ]- -( Raven ): "And thanks, Nike - I spend a few days a week backpackin' out here, so know a few spots. Been meaning to tackle the mountains eventually. Just seemed like a good thing to drag some buddies along for."
  401. -[ 22:16.05 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, I know of a few places on the mountain that might be nice."
  402. -[ 22:16.13 ]- -( @Iona ): "Well, there you go!"
  403. -[ 22:16.22 ]- -( @Iona ): "If he's allowed to take a break, so are you."
  404. -[ 22:16.23 ]- -( Nephene ): "I used to do a bit of exploring when I was younger whenever I visited the springs."
  405. -[ 22:17.24 ]- -( Raven ): "Well, I'll try to keep him around town so his little escapades aren't too far from home," she says with a grin.
  406. -[ 22:17.44 ]- - Nike serves up the first helping of kelp surprise, and offers it to the chef, giving her first dibs. "There's really nothing like the Sunglow River," she thinks out loud.
  407. -[ 22:17.45 ]- -( Nephene ): "Make sure he doesn't stay out too late, either."
  408. -[ 22:18.49 ]- - Nephene sighs. "It -is- good to have a break, though."
  409. -[ 22:18.55 ]- -( Raven ): "Not any later then I'd stay out! Steaks are done, by the way," she sets the pan aside, and gets some utensils to distribute.
  410. -[ 22:18.59 ]- -( Nephene ): "My life just.....stopped when I had to take over the inn."
  411. -[ 22:19.27 ]- -( @Iona ): "That doesn't seem fair."
  412. -[ 22:20.12 ]- - Nike says nothing. Just hands the bowl to Iona, and puts the now freed hand on Nephene's shoulder. She gives it a quick pat, before taking another bowl out to serve.
  413. -[ 22:20.36 ]- -( Raven ): "I'd like to see you try to get out a bit more, you seem really depressed a lot when just working around the inn. Have you ever considered hiring help? Even if the town's small, gotta be some youngsters looking for a few Imperials."
  414. -[ 22:20.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's a little hard trying to make ends meet to begin with."
  415. -[ 22:21.15 ]- -( Nephene ): "I'm taking a little risk in having Claud come up with a few ideas. He does have a big mind for them."
  416. -[ 22:21.30 ]- -( Nike ): "Outside this one area I need to check out, the Adventuring business has been rather slow for me. You know you can pick me up if you ever need help."
  417. -[ 22:21.44 ]- - @Iona sighs, and her hair decorations seem to droop. :c
  418. -[ 22:21.52 ]- -( Raven ): "I can't imagine how, you guys get like half my paycheck! She passes a plate around with the steaks on it.
  419. -[ 22:22.19 ]- - @Iona picks at her kelp surprise. It is, in fact, surprisingly edible.
  420. -[ 22:22.39 ]- -( Raven ): "Well I'm always looking for new guardmen - or women, obviously, to help out. I'm the only full timer still," she says to Nike.
  421. -[ 22:22.44 ]- -( Nephene ): "It's just a big place to maintain. Lots of rooms, enough to keep the pantry stocked, massage oils..."
  422. -[ 22:23.24 ]- - Nephene picks up her bowl and a fork, stirring the kelp surprise a bit to cool it down.
  423. -[ 22:23.38 ]- - Nike catches Raven's suggestion, but doesn't answer just yet, instead helping herself to the kelp surpri--MAN that's salty.
  424. -[ 22:24.03 ]- -( @Iona ): "Um."
  425. -[ 22:24.27 ]- -( Raven ): Raven digs into the kelp surprise herself, not one to be picky. "Hm?"
  426. -[ 22:24.55 ]- -( Nephene ): She gives it a try. It's not bad, but seems to lack something to balance out the salt.
  427. -[ 22:24.56 ]- -( @Iona ): "...Nothing."
  428. -[ 22:25.03 ]- -( Nephene ): "Something the matter?"
  429. -[ 22:25.55 ]- -( Raven ): "I never see you notbubbly, so yeah, what's up?"
  430. -[ 22:26.11 ]- -( @Iona ): "It's just weird, being out here with all of you~"
  431. -[ 22:27.23 ]- -( @Iona ): "Anyway, good night~"
  432. -[ 22:27.42 ]- - @Iona pushes her bowl away and curls up in the makeshift tent.
  433. -[ 22:27.51 ]- -( Raven ): "Hm? Alright...night, Iona."
  434. -[ 22:28.02 ]- -( Nike ): "It is fun. And rather nostalgic," Nike agrees, before taking another spoonful. As she feeds a bit to Surt, she looks to Iona. "Oh, she's turning in already?"
  435. -[ 22:28.08 ]- -( @Iona ): (and with that, I really really need to get to sleep. 1:30 AM DEAR GOD)
  436. -[ 22:28.27 ]- -( Nephene ): ( Sorry for keeping you up, Anise. )
  437. -[ 22:28.28 ]- -( Nike ): (Oh, oof, I know the feeling. Sleep well)
  438. -[ 22:28.46 ]- -( Raven ): (Yeah sorry this started so late :< night.)
  439. -[ 22:30.19 ]- -( Raven ): "Guess she's not as high strung as she seems to be, hm," she picks at her food.
  440. -[ 22:30.20 ]- -( @Iona ): (hopefully I'll have time to reveal iona's big secret tomorrow)
  441. -[ 22:30.21 ]- -( Nephene ): "We did hike for quite a while. I'm tired, too."
  442. -[ 22:31.17 ]- -( Nike ): "I promised to keep watch, tonight. If you need to rest early, feel free."
  443. -[ 22:31.54 ]- -( Raven ): "Yeah, true I guess - I've just gotten used to it. Hell I normally wouldn't even bother with a tent, just climbing up a tree and finding a nice branch suffices."
  444. -[ 22:32.01 ]- -( Nephene ): "No, I'll stay up if you guys are."
  445. -[ 22:32.11 ]- -( Nephene ): "It might be best to rotate who's keeping watch."
  446. -[ 22:33.19 ]- -( Nike ): "You can sleep on a branch?"
  447. -[ 22:33.36 ]- -( Raven ): She snickers as she turns her attention to the steak. "Keepin' watch. Makes this feel like some grand aventure."
  448. -[ 22:34.36 ]- -( Raven ): "Well, not flat on it, no, but leaning against it like a chair. I've...fallen out on occassion when I was younger, got used to avoiding that problem."
  449. -[ 22:35.09 ]- -( Nike ): "We just figured, in case it was something like a Pokemon that whipped up these dears." Nike pats the head of a baby Poliwag. "That's a skill I wouldn't mind picking up some time."
  450. -[ 22:36.40 ]- -( Raven ): "I'll be sure to bug ya next time I plan on staying out all night then; and if that's a concern, got the watch dog-dog and cat, ready anyway," she whistles.
  451. -[ 22:37.01 ]- -( Nephene ): "In any case, it's been a long time since I've really been out in nature."
  452. -[ 22:37.06 ]- -( Nephene ): "Not since I was in the guard."
  453. -[ 22:39.00 ]- -( Raven ): The two critters come running along back through the brush, and take a seat promptly at her side. She feeds them some of the leftovers. "I'm not totally trying to get you to take the job again and hire someone to take your place at the inn, nope, not at all," she says impishly.
  454. -[ 22:39.39 ]- -( Nephene ): <I think it would be a worthier pursuit,> Amon chimes in with his usual head-voice.
  455. -[ 22:39.47 ]- -( Nike ): "I don't think I've come out here for something that wasn't a job for a while." She picks at what's left of her meal, and actually gives Raven a sly smile. "Let me take care of one more job. Then I'll consider your offer."
  456. -[ 22:40.55 ]- -( Nephene ): "Not everything's about taking the fight to the enemy, Amon."
  457. -[ 22:41.08 ]- -( Nephene ): "There's some appeal to a nice, quiet life."
  458. -[ 22:41.34 ]- -( Raven ): "Funnnny you'd say that- To be honest I've been kinda neglectin' one of the grimmer details of my duty for a bit...Claud helped me get some information out of those bandits from the Spring festival."
  459. -[ 22:41.40 ]- -( Nephene ): "Oh?"
  460. -[ 22:42.21 ]- -( Nike ): "Do tell." Nike always felt bad for not being in the thick of it, but cleaning up was an important job.
  461. -[ 22:43.25 ]- - - - - - -[ Nick ]- -[ DamienLunas is now Damien|ZZZ ]-
  462. -[ 22:43.36 ]- -( Raven ): "We know their camp locations. Got it marked on a map," she says as she pokes at the fire. "But I don't think I could rally the townspeople to do much about it without something happening again."
  463. -[ 22:44.02 ]- -( Nephene ): "Are they planning something else?"
  464. -[ 22:44.31 ]- -( Raven ): "Outside of just looting for goods? No, don't think so."
  465. -[ 22:44.59 ]- -( Raven ): "But it's a terribly handy piece of intel to just go to waste."
  466. -[ 22:45.31 ]- -( Nike ): "Hmm...Raven, could I see that map at some point? That one job I mentioned, it's a longshot, but there might be some overlap to it..."
  467. -[ 22:46.22 ]- -( Raven ): "Yeah, I got it hanging in the guard post in town....now that you mention it, would be...a good idea to make that information a bit more public for people's safty."
  468. -[ 22:46.39 ]- -( Raven ): She honestly hadn't considered this, and looks concerned.
  469. -[ 22:47.01 ]- -( Nephene ): "What's the job, Nike?"
  470. -[ 22:48.08 ]- -( Nike ): "I found a map while I was doing some exploring in the woods. Maka assured me it was authentic, so once I get a cross reference as to where it is in relation to Oran, it's a ruin expedition."
  471. -[ 22:49.05 ]- -( Nike ): "It's an off shot, but it's possible that maybe there's some landmarks on your map that can help me narrow down mine. If we can get a team to explore that ruin, we could use that team to take on those bandits."
  472. -[ 22:49.26 ]- -( Nephene ): "Any luck with assembling that team?"
  473. -[ 22:49.51 ]- -( Raven ): "Wait wait wait what. Yeah, who is in this 'team?' "
  474. -[ 22:50.14 ]- -( Raven ): "I don't want just anyone marching off to make a hero of themself and coming back in a body bag. Ask Arawn or Henry just how well we faired against them."
  475. -[ 22:51.34 ]- -( Nike ): Now it's Nike's turn to look concerned. "Maka and Jack, so far...we were thinking of getting Lisa on board..."
  476. -[ 22:52.43 ]- -( Raven ): She laughs. "I dunno about Jack still, but good luck dragging Maka off to fight bandits without Submission putting you in a chokehold. I dunno what Lisa would think of that either."
  477. -[ 22:53.35 ]- -( Nike ): A laugh escapes Nike's lips. "Well, if we were investigating a ruin, we'd need a few people who knew how to fight in case something happened anyway. That's what I was banking on."
  478. -[ 22:55.03 ]- -( Nephene ): "....mmm. Well, I -can- fight, but...."
  479. -[ 22:55.28 ]- -( Raven ): "I'd have to suggest not purposely getting near a bandit camp. They aren't all pushovers, and last thing we need is a few of the children in town getting killed from being foolhardy. If that's something you're seriously going to pursue, bandit hunting, consult me first."
  480. -[ 22:56.17 ]- -( Nike ): "I maintain my interest in the ruins...but I promise, after that, I want to help with your efforts against the bandits."
  481. -[ 22:59.06 ]- -( Raven ): "I don't intend to go light on them, just a fare warning," she says with a stern gaze. "That and...I can't really house all these bandits I dunno what to do with them."
  482. -[ 23:01.09 ]- -( Raven ): "I actually have to stay at the crappy little house of mine now cause it's hard to sleep with them being obnoxious assholes at all hours of the night." :I
  483. -[ 23:02.03 ]- -( Nike ): "And now the reason you wanted to go on a camping trip, outside of town, becomes so clear."
  484. -[ 23:02.32 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, it's more than that, I'm sure."
  485. -[ 23:03.41 ]- -( Raven ): "What? Oh - no, that's not it at all," she frowns, hurt. "I really did just want to hang out with you guys away from well...everything, for a bit."
  486. -[ 23:04.12 ]- -( Nephene ): "I appreciate it," Neph says with a geniune smile.
  487. -[ 23:04.16 ]- -( Nike ): "Raven."
  488. -[ 23:04.25 ]- -( Nike ): Sly smile. "It was a joke."
  489. -[ 23:04.30 ]- -( Raven ): :<
  490. -[ 23:04.48 ]- -( Raven ): "Not a good one," she pouts.
  491. -[ 23:05.29 ]- -( Nephene ): "In any case, it's....nice to have that bit of freedom again. To have a bit of my life back."
  492. -[ 23:05.30 ]- -( Nike ): "You're right, I'm sorry." Nike seems a lot more at ease and...happy, than recent.
  493. -[ 23:05.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "Though, -you're- cheerier than usual, Nike..."
  494. -[ 23:07.29 ]- -( Nike ): "Am I?" Nike sits back. "...Man, I think we all needed this, huh?"
  495. -[ 23:07.52 ]- -( Raven ): "Well I'll try to drag you away from home a bit more now, granted I'll probably be doing the same for your brother...this is going to be odd to work out."
  496. -[ 23:08.09 ]- - - - - - -[ Quit ]- -[ Garlyle (464dd8bc@sux-11491D6B.mibbit.com) has left: (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client) ]-
  497. -[ 23:08.16 ]- - Nephene grins. "It's not something you can hide from me, you know."
  498. -[ 23:08.32 ]- -( Nike ): "I'd recommend doing it for Arawn as well, but, somehow he'd probably just take his work with him."
  499. -[ 23:08.49 ]- -( Nephene ): "I worry about him."
  500. -[ 23:09.04 ]- -( Nephene ): "I try to stop by occasionally, if only because he doesn't come to the Slaking very often."
  501. -[ 23:09.31 ]- -( Nephene ): "Bring him some food, sometimes under the guise of getting a critique out of a new recipe."
  502. -[ 23:10.37 ]- -( Raven ): "He was happy enough when I slapped down 6000 imperials to make me some pretty nice armor, but has been a total grouch since then. And I meant if I drag him off that leaves you stuck working at the inn - seriously you guys need some part timers or something if you're that busy."
  503. -[ 23:11.05 ]- -( Nephene ): "Maybe when we expand a little, and attract more people into town."
  504. -[ 23:12.51 ]- - Nike takes out a canteen, and holds it up, as if toasting the idea of expanding Oran, making it a greater village, before she takes a drink, and passes it around.
  505. -[ 23:13.02 ]- -( Raven ): "Well it's workin' so far I guess, I mean, I can't imagine me, Henry, Flynn, who else...uh..." she thinks for a second. "Oh, and that new guy, Canute, show up all within a few months is that common."
  506. -[ 23:13.12 ]- - Nephene fishes her own canteen out of her satchel.
  507. -[ 23:14.54 ]- -( Raven ): Raven takes out a...flask, from her jacket.
  508. -[ 23:15.27 ]- -( Nephene ): "Don't tell me that you filled that one with Haxorus Piss, Raven." She has a hard time taking the drink's name seriously.
  509. -[ 23:16.26 ]- -( Raven ): "...Uh, I don't actually know what's in it, but I don't think it's Haxorus Piss. Your brother sorta just filled it up for me."
  510. -[ 23:17.34 ]- -( Nephene ): "Ah! It's probably something special, then."
  511. -[ 23:17.42 ]- -( Nephene ): "To Oran Valley, and its future success."
  512. -[ 23:18.30 ]- -( Raven ): "Mhm, cheers!"
  513. -[ 23:19.05 ]- -( Kain ): (Is dat sum liquid courage)
  514. -[ 23:19.33 ]- -( Raven ): She takes a swig
  515. -[ 23:19.53 ]- - Nephene takes a drink from her canteen.
  516. -[ 23:20.09 ]- -( Raven ): Eyes go wide, lowers the flask, starts coughing. "Wait, no...that was Haxorus Piss."
  517. -[ 23:20.12 ]- -( Raven ): "Oooooh boy."
  518. -[ 23:20.25 ]- -( Nephene ): "...."
  519. -[ 23:20.49 ]- -( Nike ): "...Well, I say that calls for you to call it early."
  520. -[ 23:21.19 ]- -( Raven ): "That caught me be surprise. Oh jeez."
  521. -[ 23:23.00 ]- -( Raven ): She prods the campfire with a stick. "I dunno long how it'll be before this stuff makes me do anyway tha- wait a minute." hic.
  522. -[ 23:25.05 ]- -( Raven ): She puts the flask away. "...well leashts no onesh out here to shee me go flamesh in down."
  523. -[ 23:25.41 ]- -( Nike ): "Alright. Nephene, you wanna tie her down, or should I?"
  524. -[ 23:25.48 ]- -( Nike ): Was...that another joke, or...?
  525. -[ 23:26.06 ]- -( Nephene ): "Well, I don't -think- she's going to hurt herself...."
  526. -[ 23:26.22 ]- -( Raven ): "I sshear I didn't *hic* ashk him to fill it with that."
  527. -[ 23:26.55 ]- -( Nephene ): "...unless this is a private supply."
  528. -[ 23:27.20 ]- -( Raven ): "Wat."
  529. -[ 23:27.59 ]- -( Nike ): "What are the odds our Barkeep friend filled that with Haxorus Piss to mess with us?"
  530. -[ 23:28.17 ]- -( Nephene ): "I never took him for a practical joker. I'll ask him about it when we get back."
  531. -[ 23:28.51 ]- -( Nike ): "Best way, I suppose." Nike holds out her hand. "Mind if I have a sip of that?"
  532. -[ 23:29.16 ]- -( Nephene ): "Are you sure? Gramps has been brewing for -years-, and that's his strongest drink."
  533. -[ 23:29.25 ]- -( Raven ): Raven squints at her. "Have you hadthish shit before?"
  534. -[ 23:29.30 ]- -( Nephene ): "I just wish he didn't give it such a terrible name."
  535. -[ 23:29.39 ]- -( Raven ): She waves the flask at her anyway.
  536. -[ 23:30.10 ]- -( Raven ): "Knocks you off shraitght your assh."
  537. -[ 23:30.58 ]- -( Nike ): "Haven't had it before, but you know me, Nephene. I can take it. At least, I'll be just a little worse off than Raven."
  538. -[ 23:31.55 ]- -( Raven ): "And Claud wouldn't do that, he *hic* got flushstered enough when - " oh, wait, Nephene is sitting right there. Staaare.
  539. -[ 23:32.20 ]- -( Nephene ): "....when what?"
  540. -[ 23:32.30 ]- - Nike takes the waving flask, and takes a quick sip. Then another second of drinkin--"I immediately regret this."
  541. -[ 23:34.02 ]- -( Raven ): Her eyes dart away. "Itsh nothing bad. More embarrashing."
  542. -[ 23:34.12 ]- -( Nephene ): "....oh, dear."
  543. -[ 23:34.25 ]- - Nephene is going to be the only one that's sober and awake.
  544. -[ 23:36.13 ]- - Nike quickly hands back the flask to Raven...but the damage is done. It was just a sip, but already Nike is feeling dizzy. Not slurred speech dizzy, but--"You ever wonder what we sound like to Pokemon? Is it just Nike Nike Nik Nik?"
  545. -[ 23:36.15 ]- -( Raven ): "I uh - wash teashin him. And I don't what know how he mashks thish shtuff but it doesh itsh job well."
  546. -[ 23:36.50 ]- -( Raven ): She nearly drops the flask as she slams her hands on the ground and leans forward. "ALL THE TIME!" *HIC*
  547. -[ 23:37.11 ]- - Nephene simply caps the flask. This is going to be awful.
  548. -[ 23:37.56 ]- -( Nike ): "Remember when I said I'd take first watch? Yeah, mind if I take second, instead? Think I'm just going to lie down for a minute..."
  549. -[ 23:38.23 ]- -( Raven ): "I alwaysh wishshed I could talk to them...my granpapa could..." she's awefully riled up but...yeah she's gonna tank soon.
  550. -[ 23:39.06 ]- -( Nephene ): Still, she's never actually -tried- it.
  551. -[ 23:41.05 ]- -( Raven ): Raven just sort of stares. "You know you're curious!"
  552. -[ 23:41.29 ]- -( Nephene ): "....no! One sip each, and you two are already stupid drunk!"
  553. -[ 23:42.06 ]- -( Nike ): "I'm not STUPID drunk. ....Just dizzy drunk..."
  554. -[ 23:42.13 ]- -( Nephene ): "....I really shouldn't do this."
  555. -[ 23:42.27 ]- -( Nephene ): "Someone has to keep watch, and keep things safe here."
  556. -[ 23:42.37 ]- -( Raven ): "I'm drunk that not!"
  557. -[ 23:42.46 ]- -( Nike ): "Absolutely. And since we just disqualified ourselves..."
  558. -[ 23:44.02 ]- -( Raven ): "...you know you want to try it." She has a peevish grin
  559. -[ 23:44.14 ]- -( Nephene ): "No. Nonononononoooooo."
  560. -[ 23:44.42 ]- -( Nephene ): "I have to be the responsible one here."
  561. -[ 23:45.24 ]- -( Raven ): She points a finger. "HORSESHIT! And Maki here can keep watch anyway!"
  562. -[ 23:46.35 ]- -( Nephene ): "....fine!
  563. -[ 23:46.35 ]- -( Nephene ): "
  564. -[ 23:46.40 ]- -( Nephene ): "Just....just a sip."
  565. -[ 23:46.51 ]- -( Nephene ): "Nothing more."
  566. -[ 23:47.26 ]- - Nephene grabs the flask uneasily.
  567. -[ 23:47.40 ]- -( Nike ): "Brave girl!"
  568. -[ 23:47.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "....stupid girl," she mutters, before taking a light sip.
  569. -[ 23:48.03 ]- - - - - - -[ Quit ]- -[ Mons (Mons@sux-530AA3AB.nap.wideopenwest.com) has left: (Quit: no spoilers) ]-
  570. -[ 23:48.04 ]- -( Raven ): Raven springs over impishly and attempts to pour more then 'just a sip' down her throat :3c
  571. -[ 23:48.21 ]- -( Nephene ): ....and down the hatch it goes.
  572. -[ 23:48.37 ]- -( Raven ): "hehehehhe"
  573. -[ 23:48.47 ]- -( Nephene ): She sputters, but her initial reaction is one of contentment.
  574. -[ 23:48.57 ]- -( Nephene ): "Thisssssh....ish actually -really- delicious."
  575. -[ 23:49.02 ]- -( Raven ): "Told ya!"
  576. -[ 23:49.14 ]- -( Nephene ): It's becoming increasingly clear that Neph cannot hold her alcohol worth a damn.
  577. -[ 23:49.35 ]- -( Nephene ): Already, the swaying starts, as the alcohol hits her system like a brick.
  578. -[ 23:49.38 ]- - Nike laughs from the gut, and throws her arm around Neph's shoulders, giving her a congratulatory shake.
  579. -[ 23:49.40 ]- -( Nephene ): Amon can do little except facepalm.
  580. -[ 23:49.45 ]- -( Raven ): "This was the worsht besht idea ever."
  581. -[ 23:49.53 ]- -( Damien|ZZZ ): (what about forcepalm :3c)
  582. -[ 23:50.01 ]- -( Nephene ): ".....ishn't it supposed to be the besht worsht?"
  583. -[ 23:50.20 ]- -( Nephene ): "Thish....is good. I can definitely....see why people want this."
  584. -[ 23:50.21 ]- -( Raven ): "audino what the differensh ish at the moment."
  585. -[ 23:50.26 ]- -( Nephene ): "I mean....it'sh legendary!"
  586. -[ 23:50.59 ]- -( Nike ): "Nah, nah, nah. It's Haxorus Piss. It's PSEUDO-legendary."
  587. -[ 23:51.35 ]- -( Raven ): "We need to she if your grandpa make will 'axew wizz.' Lesh brute forsh."
  588. -[ 23:51.48 ]- -( Nephene ): "Maybe....when he getsh back."
  589. -[ 23:52.37 ]- -( Nephene ): "....maaaaaaaaybe I should stick with the Blood Cherrim stuff from now on~"
  590. -[ 23:52.47 ]- -( Nephene ): "I feel....so shilly."
  591. -[ 23:53.52 ]- -( Nike ): "Heh heh heh." Nike snatches the flask, and has another quick sip. Now she's on the level of the others, no doubt. "Ghod, I love Blood Cherrim. So shweet."
  592. -[ 23:54.03 ]- -( Nephene ): <This may be, literally, the worst decision you've ever made. Clearly, I have to do everything myself.>
  593. -[ 23:54.06 ]- -( Raven ): "To hell with that! You shaid it yourshelf, get control of your life back!"
  594. -[ 23:54.06 ]- -( @Paradox ): (Haxorus isn't a pseudo legendary!)
  595. -[ 23:54.16 ]- -( Nephene ): ( Exactly, she's dumb drunk right now.)
  596. -[ 23:54.16 ]- -( @Paradox ): 1d100 shenanigans roll for perpetuating LIES

  600. -[ 23:54.35 ]- -( @Paradox ): (ALRIGHT YOU'RE SAFE FOR NOW)
  601. -[ 23:55.12 ]- -( Nike ): (Safe. For three drunk formerly sane girls out in the woods with a not!mermaid asleep on us)

  606. -[ 23:57.32 ]- -( Nephene ): "Yyyyyeah, buuuuut....like, before."
  607. -[ 23:58.32 ]- - Nephene hiccups.
  608. -[ 23:58.56 ]- -( Nike ): "Pffft. You shound jusht like mah dad." Nike rolls her eyes. "Ghod, he keeps ashking when heim ghonna meet somebody..."
  609. -[ 23:58.57 ]- -( Raven ): She shakes her head. "My dad wash...really shtrict groing up. I couldn't leave the housh much until I went to the military academy."
  610. -[ 23:59.13 ]- -( Raven ): "I hadn't even really thought about it till Claud :<."

  616. -[ 00:03.44 ]- - Nephene gives an unbalanced laugh, and throws an arm around Nike. "What? Am I riiiiiight?~"
  617. -[ 00:04.57 ]- -( Nike ): Nike huffs, and throws her arm around Nephenee, effectively turning this into a three woman group hug. "No. Hphm. Hahppy?"
  618. -[ 00:05.11 ]- -( Nephene ): "No. :("
  619. -[ 00:05.25 ]- -( Nephene ): "I wahnt -you- to be happyyyyy."

  621. -[ 00:07.18 ]- -( Nike ): Nike suddenly shoves her pinky in between Nephene and Raven. "Girlsh, group pacht. We get back to town, sober up, and get us a lover. Young, old, I think we can stop giving a shhhhhhuckle."

  649. -[ 00:17.32 ]- - Nephene holds up a hand, and mimes flipping through a notebook.
  650. -[ 00:17.37 ]- -( Raven ): "But...I'm with your brother."
  651. -[ 00:17.47 ]- -( Raven ): "Hell I might actshually end up your shister.."
  652. -[ 00:17.57 ]- - Nike is barely above a mutter, now, already falling asleep.
  653. -[ 00:18.29 ]- -( Nephene ): "I had you with Henry at first. You were allllllways so nervoush around him. It was soooooo sweet~"
  654. -[ 00:18.56 ]- -( Nephene ): "Nikekekeke and Arawwwwwn. Awwwww....n"

  665. -[ 00:24.13 ]- -( Nephene ): "And maybe if I get the chance....jusht maybe....I could sheeeee...."
  666. -[ 00:24.25 ]- - Nephene collapses face-first into Nike's lap, passed out.
  667. -[ 00:24.28 ]- -( Raven ): "Where are your notes for you?!"
  668. -[ 00:24.32 ]- -( Raven ): "..."
  669. -[ 00:25.03 ]- -( Raven ): "Well that'sh-" yeah she passes out on top of Neph. Maki and Hei just stare at each other in horror. If they had Aura, oh the stories they'd tell.
  670. -[ 00:25.45 ]- -( Nephene ): <I hate my life.>
  671. -[ 00:25.52 ]- -( Nephene ): He's not serious, but -really-.
  672. -[ 00:26.09 ]- -( Raven ): Maki and Hei nod at him in agreement.
  673. -[ 00:26.56 ]- -( Nephene ): <Well, then, little ones. Let's do them a favor.>
  674. -[ 00:27.06 ]- -( Nephene ): <We may as well watch over them.>
  675. -[ 00:27.08 ]- -( Damien|ZZZ ): (take their pants off)
  676. -[ 00:27.13 ]- -( Damien|ZZZ ): (that works too I guess.)
  677. -[ 00:27.59 ]- -( Raven ): They nod, but join the dogpile anyway, while watching and listening. Maki puffs at the fire every now and then, to keep it going.
  678. -[ 00:28.09 ]- -( Nephene ): Amon fetches a blanket from the tent, and throws it over the drunken women.
  679. -[ 00:28.21 ]- -( Nephene ): With a sigh, he returns to his place by the fire, keeping watch.
  680. -[ 00:29.01 ]- -( Nike ): Surt puts a leg over his snout, and shakes his head, snorting and giving a good approximation of a face palm.
