Seriously... Hats off to you, Celephias. That was a boatload of fun. Not sure how fun it was for Kiara, and I'd love to see that side of the logs. But having participated in my first ever Genesis hostage negotiation...

That was epic.


Great job all around guys. Very fun to relive!

This was a ton of fun, great experience. I really wanted to get more involved in it, but didn't want to get Kiara killed in the process. :lol:

It was fun to play the over-eager Child. Amorana doesn't know this, but Jhael even started to follow her to 'the meet'. ;)

Good to know Jhael is a rebel. Now the Tower can start to abuse this OOC knowledge and bring her back to the apprenticeship :P

Long have you been a mole, just dont make it so easy to see here where everyone will abuse it *chortle wryly*

This was super good fun. Kiara and Becka also deserve a lot of credit for the scene. Kiara never broke role while being detained for a long time and Becka was up very late. The RP seemed to have a gravity all its own - very nice.

So many questions still though:
- Why let Kiara live?
- Why fall for what is most likely a hoax regarding a conveniently available ring?
- Why not take the opportunity kill Amorana with what could have been an easy trap opportunity?

Hmmm.....


It was my pleasure. It was very late for me so I do not have a log of my own. That being said, I know for a fact Cel got one! Maybe if he can get away from the copious amount of food and drinks on this day he will share it with you all :)

This is the situation from the eyes of a ringwraith. Its pretty long but we ran for a while.

Code:
A large hall on the ground floor of the Tower of Black Sorcery.
There are three obvious exits: northeast, north and east.
[a magnetic slender female kender (shackled to the wall)].

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: How curious
You hiss: What have we here?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Umm... a lost hobbit...?
You hiss: What name have you hobbit?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Ooohh I think you know my
name! Kiara, the famous mage-hunter.
You hiss: You are not known to me.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe you have heard of me?
You hiss: I have not, though others of the Society may have.

You walk up the steps onto the dais and sit down on one of the smaller thrones.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well thats me! I damend you
release me before I uh... break these chains.
You hiss: The agreement was some elf meat.  Nothing about touring the tower.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I did say I was gonna see the
sights...
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: You didnt say no so I figured...
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: But I spared the life of that
guard who attacked me, with some cunning!

You emote: |Celephias| drums his haggard fingers along the arm of the throne.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Since you invited me and
all...

You hiss: This poses quite a predicament.
You hiss: You profess to be some mage hunter, yet I was never hunted.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Uh well, I havent exactly
started hunting yet... its more of a work in progress.

You hiss: How fortuitous then for me.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Currently I am more of a mage-
huntee...
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: But uh yeah, thats just
temporary.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Yeah.
You emote: |Celephias| reclines thoughtfully.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I really just came here to,
well the idea was to hunt you some...
You emote: |Celephias| leans forward eagerly and hisses, "Is there any who
would pay your ransom?"

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Uh there might
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I cant see who is awake though..

You hiss: How might that be?

You hiss: Provide me a name and I will see.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Yanus is asleep right?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe Amorana is awake?

You nod coldly.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I thought I saw her recently
hiss Indeed she is.
You hiss: Indeed she is.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe she could?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: What sthe ransom?

You hiss: Let me see if she is willing to pay anything for a hobbit.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Okay. That sounds good.

Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       I have the one known as Kiara, the alleged mage hunter. Is she worth
       any ransom to you and yours?

A large hall on the ground floor of the Tower of Black Sorcery. You have
entered none other than the audience chamber of the Lord of the Nazgul, whose
power is supreme and cannot be fathomed within these halls. Two rows of mighty
pillars run southwest, ending astride a dais of many steps where a canopy of
blood-red stone looms above a high throne. To each side, and three steps lower,
four smaller thrones crown the dais. A pile of shackles rests in one corner,
ominously implicating the potentials here.
There are three obvious exits: northeast, north and east.
[a magnetic slender female kender (shackled to the wall)].

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: She asked me if I am okay
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I cant really reply

Your eyes flicker like brightly glowing embers, betraying your dark amusement.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: But uh tell her I am okay,
just strapped to a chair in the tower

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       The wretch cannot reply to you. She is under my control at the
       moment. You may speak to me of her fate.

You hiss: We shall see what she replies with.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Not sure how to convince her I
am really here!

Through force of will, you hold [the magnetic slender female kender]'s gaze,
searching for any signs of weakness.
[The magnetic slender female kender] looks at you fearfully.

You hiss: Well, you may wish her to have some faith.

You hiss: Lest your fate will be quick.

You emote: |Celephias| gestures a single finger across his neck.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: She keeps telling me stuffs

You emote: |Celephias| stretches slowly.

You hiss: Tell me something she told you and I will try and convince here you
are here.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well j-just tell her something
that proves I am really here! Like...

You hiss: Else....

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well we met a few days ago in
Sparkle! At the imbuement place. I asked her if she had skewerstones
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: She was with Jhael
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: She had none.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Yeah thats the last time we met
I think
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Hope she remembers

With the power the Dark Lord has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       My guest has indicated that she asked you for skewerstones in Sparkle
       as you traveled with Jhael last you two spoke. Are you not yet
       convinced she is in my custody?

You hiss: Still no response.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Thats not promising

You hiss: I am still not convinced you may not have some value to me.

You hiss: Corpses are easy to come by.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: She replied

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Saying she knows we met in
Sparkle and remembers it

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Tell her I will pay back any
ransom
With a touch of the Dark Lord's powers, you tell Amorana:
       The kender claims that it will pay back any ransom you are to pay on
       its behalf. However, where I have not yet heard from you, I believe
       such a payment is not coming from you.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well I sure didnt expect this
when I woke up today.

You hiss: EH, the life of a hobbit?

You think fondly of removing [the magnetic slender female kender]'s skin, piece
by tiny piece.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Even for a h.. kender, its
quite an unexpected event!
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Its quite exciting. But uh, it
would be nise to get my elf toes and be on my way..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I need to pee...

You emote: |Celephias| reflects thoughtfully, mumbling, "kenders...."

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I am told by the
Saved one.... The Redeemed one, that you are likely the only Soulless awake.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Now Jhael contacted me

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: As I know not your
name, nor am I better off for knowing so, I assume it is you who invades my
mind.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Asking me if I am alright.

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       Indeed it is.
With a touch of the Dark Lord's powers, you tell Amorana:
       Would you come to rescue your kender?

You hiss: We shall see if your rescue is pending.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: And what price do you
presume to extol, to extort, by means of your foul magic?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Great. I really need to use the
bathroom. Like... now.

You hiss: Your pants will suffice.

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       I will confess to not being fully knowledgeable about what a fully
       functioning kender would fetch these days.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: What ransom are you asking for?

You hiss: Let us see what they think you are worth first.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Ah, the indubitable
intelligence of that without a Soul... So keen to extort but not even
understanding its own wishes. Chaotic, unlife under the 'eye', is it not.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: They are my sisters... so...
something I hope!
Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell Amorana:
       Would you care to visit to see for yourself? I can understand you
       wanting to see for yourself.
You sacrificed a copper coin.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I could solve your
problems. You could be redeemed. Absolved of even this wrongdoing.

Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       Perhaps we will talk of other things once our business concerning the
       kender is concluded.

A tiny elven nymph dragon mysteriously appears to [the magnetic slender female
kender], and she retrieves a scroll from her.

Your eyes flicker like brightly glowing embers, betraying your dark amusement.
>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well nice of them to send
scrolls..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: But you know..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: They could send a bathroom if
the really wanted to help!

You hiss: I suspect they are hard to read.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: A little..

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: So then, name your
price. You have named your terms... A price to be paid for the release of our
Sister. What is the price?

Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       Your tarrying may prove fatal for the kender...

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh now its dark too. Great.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: COuld you pick up a herb from my
pouch and put it in my mouth?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Or wait, no, just light a lamp.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Thats easier.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Hello?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: You still here?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: HELLO??
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: It is not the fault of
my own if in your own grand plan you have neglected to plan for what you seek.

You hiss: It may be better for you to have a little light.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh there you are
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Dont leave me here in the dark.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Hello?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: HELLO??!
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Did you hear a sound?

You hiss: You will be in dark for a time.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: There you are.
You drop a burning iron oil-lamp.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh thats better.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Thank you.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I can inform you the bathroom
problem is no longer a problem by the way.
You emote: |Celephias| watches the shadows trace menacingly on the wall as he
stalks about, robe flowing/

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Sorry about the... mess.

You hiss: It is to be expected.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: It wasnt out of fear.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I just.. drank a lot before
coming..

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       Plan? What plan is needed to ensnare some vermin and try and extract
       some value for it?

With a touch of the Dark Lord's powers, you tell Amorana:
       It may be worth more sold to the inn for food.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: You got a towel?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe I could sit in another
chair?

You hiss: Your clothing appears to be collecting it nicely.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Hm yeah...

You emote: |Celephias| paces back and forth slowly, smiling slightly.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Lets change the subject.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: They coming?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I am sure they're gathering a
force to break me free.

You hiss: It would appear they value you little at the moment.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: So you better release me
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Really?
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I am told that the nine
seek a golden ring of power... I have a golden ring which was told to me to be
of great power.

You hiss: There are many arms and swords between them and us, kender.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I could offer it unto
you. Perhaps it is the ring you seek... perhaps not.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I dont think they believe you...

Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       Oh? Such a ring would indeed be valuable were it the right one.
You sacrificed a copper coin.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe if you release me and Ill
go convince them? Ill promise to return.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I can send a faerie and tell
them you're serious!

With the power the Dark Lord has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       If you bring it here we can consummate the transaction. However,
       should it prove false, you will not leave alive.
You sacrificed a copper coin.

You emote: |Celephias| paces, mumbling quietly to himself, "Could they really
have it? It is most likely a trick, but what if...."

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Well... you could
certainly inspect the ring... But only when Kiara is free and I have left. I
can tell you where to find it. And if you think I shall venture to the tower to
hand it to you, you are certainly mistaken.

With the power the Dark Lord has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       Your presence, in person, is all I will accept. I can guarantee safe
       passage if you have what I want.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Ok, I got a suggestion for you.
Forget about the elf toes. We speak of this no more. And I wont hunt you at all
for...a week!
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Deal?

You hiss: Silence!

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Ok.

You hiss: Your 'friends' have responded.
You hiss: We shall see if they value your life.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.

You hiss: I wonder if they value you.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.
[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Heh yeah.. me too!
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: That will not do.
Neutral ground only, and I shall see the kender leave before you know where to
find the ring. What I have in my possession could certainly be everything the
tower seeks, the whole reason for your wretched existence. However, you will
never know until you see it. And if the kender dies, the ring shall rest at the
bottom of the Sybarun sea. So what will it be? Is the Kender more important
than what could be the ring?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: We dont know each other that
well.. uh but theyre all I got right now.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: So yeah, fingers crossed. If I
could.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.
[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.
You emote: |Celephias| reclines thoughtfully.

You hiss: Your friends have made a proposal.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Great!

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I hope.
Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       You really should show more courage than that. Your friend is here
       and you will come or she will perish.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: What is it?
hiss She lacks the courage to come here.
You hiss: She lacks the courage to come here.
>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Uhm.
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I certainly wonder what
the King of Morgul... the 'great eye' would think of one of its pitiful peons
too wrapped up in the petty affairs of Kendermore to pursue what could be the
ring of power...
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: That doesnt sounds promising.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Sound.
You hiss: It is not.


You chuckle with delight at the thought of putting [the magnetic slender female
kender] on the rack.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Maybe Jhael can come?
You hiss: It would still be far too easy to kill you.  Not much sport or
entertainment in that.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: We agree!

You emote: |Celephias| tilts his head thoughtfully, shadows playing on his
face.

You shake your head in disagreement.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I would definitely not kill
you shackled to a chair.

You hiss: Nay, only the one known as Amorana will suffice now.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: How about this, if this ever
happens to you, Ill let you go too?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Fair?
The burning iron oil-lamp flickers briefly. It seems to be running out of oil.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: No tthe darkness again...
The burning iron oil-lamp flickers briefly. It seems to be running out of oil.
You hiss: Ah, the darkness returns....
>
The iron oil-lamp flickers and goes out. It ran out of oil.

You emote: |Celephias| walks about, the clomping of boots reverberating through
the hall.
>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Hello?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Mr Wraith?
You hiss: You don't like the darkness?
>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Can you check what touched my
leg just now?
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Sure, I got no problem with
darkness.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Its great.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Love it here... yeah..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Nice and dark... cozy.

You sing one verse of the battle song of Mordor:

       Come here my hobbit do not flee, hoorah hoorah,
       come back come back come play with me, hoorah, hoorah!

       The hobbit char, the fresh new tar,
       the cooking smell will spread afar
       and we kill kill kill kill,
       we are the Dark Lord's host.

>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh music... nice..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I do like a good song..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Catchy... yes..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I'd really like to go now

You hiss: You could join me in a refrain.

You sing one verse of the battle song of Mordor:

       Come here my hobbit do not flee, hoorah hoorah,
       come back come back come play with me, hoorah, hoorah!

       The hobbit char, the fresh new tar,
       the cooking smell will spread afar
       and we kill kill kill kill,
       we are the Dark Lord's host.


[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Uh.. kill kill kill..

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Kill... dark lord... kill
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: No wait
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Not kill dark lord
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Again?
You hiss: Your spirits are still high.  Good. You will need them.

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       Tarry not. Come hence to Minas Morgul and save your friend.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Well I am an experienced mage
hunter. Your tricks dont scare me.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Much.
You hiss: Your friends delay.
You hiss: Such cowardice.  You should keep better company.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Yes... well kenders dont have
an easy time making friends..
You hiss: And why is this?

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I have no idea why. We're the
nicest people on the donut.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: No clue!
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Its comletely unfair.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Ive never met an evil kender.
Ever!
You hiss: Most unfortunate.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I wish Windemere was awake.
He'd get it.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: He's not right?
You hiss: I must see where your friends are.  I will also have some servant see
to our light.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Your repetition does
naught to serve your cause. You wish a ransom, I have offered it. You have
named your terms, I have named mine. If you do not wish to have a look at what
could be what the tower slaves for, then what else can I offer to you. You know
how you can receive the ring. If you wish to meet, we shall do so, at the
Prancing Pony in Bree. The kender will leave free, as will I. And I will tell
you where to retrieve the ring.
You hiss: He is not.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Okay.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Youre gonna leave me in the dark
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Not that I mind
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Still.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Ok sure this will be fine.

You light an iron oil-lamp.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh Hello.
Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       There have been many rings passed off as the One Ring. Your
       unwillingness to represent the ring in person makes the proposition
       suspect. I would think you would place more value on the life of your
       friend.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Perhaps you should not
tarry yourself in your reply. I can travel to Sybarus rather quickly... Or, now
that you mention it... There is that bin in Museum that leads to the belly of
Mound Doom.
With the power the Dark Lord has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       You're bluffing. You realize that once one of the other Nine, or the
       King return to the tower that your friend most certainly will be
       tortured and killed.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Ah, but you see... That
is because you believe yourself to be in a position of power. But alas, you are
not. You have the life of a dear Sister, one wish I will work hard to save. If
she is returned to the Cycle, even by the likes of you, then the Five have
willed it. However, you... Your one purpose in life could be quite ruined with
a quick trip to the Museum.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I am starting to need a bathroom
again... I really dont wanna mess up this chair even more..
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Tell them that
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: You hold no power in
these negotiations wretch. I hold everything... Right here... In the palm of my
hand.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I mean tell them that please.

You walk up the steps onto the dais and sit down on one of the smaller thrones.

You emote: |Celephias| rubs a habbard hand over his shadowed chin.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is

[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is

You hiss: Your friend is a shrewd negotiator.
>
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh dont demand too much. I
dont have much use.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I bet you got better slaves.
Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       The uruks are asking to rend her limb from limb for their stew pot.
       Her screams are quite....musical.
You hiss: It would appear that your friends need more convincing.
 
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: That I am really here?

You hiss: That I will kill you, rather painfully.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Oh...

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I do hope that you are
the one who is bluffing now. This is quite a shiny, precious ring I hold. It
would be a shame to see it in the fires of Mount Doom. If she dies, the world
over will know that the tower seeks no longer the 'One Ring'. It seeks only the
taste of Kender.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: I really just wanted to taste
thoe elf toes...
[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.
[The magnetic slender female kender] strains against her shackles, but is
unable to escape.

You emote: |Celephias| wrings his hands thoughtfully.

[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: And! I think it counts in my
favour that I spared the life of your citizens even though they attacked me.
[The magnetic slender female kender] chatters: Yeah!

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: These chains are definitely well
made thats for sure..

You emote: |Celephias| paces, mumbling to himself, "if .... have it ..... can't
be, can't be....but what if...."
 
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Who are you talking to?
You leer creepily at the magnetic slender female kender with the unholy light
of corruption in your eyes.

You hiss: Silence.
Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       How did you come to be in possession of such a treasure?
You sacrificed a copper coin.
The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: It was given to me, by
an individual in a most unfortunate state, who said unto me that it was a ring
of power... great power even. Of what great power, I have no true idea. I
certainly do not dabble in 'magic'.

You emote: |Celephias| stalks around, agitated.
> The magnetic slender female kender chatters: You're killing me by starvation?

Using a touch of the power the Black Master has granted you, you tell
Amorana:
       Describe for me this ring....
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Thats ironic..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Since I came here to eat..
You hiss: Conserve your energy.  You'll need it.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Ive never talked as little as
now.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I am conserving it.

You smile coldly, secure in the knowledge that the power of the Dark Lord
protects you.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: My name is Tendertongue for a
reason..

You hiss: Wise.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Are my rescue still outside with
the army?
You hiss: I fear your rescuers are displaying great cowardice.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: It is golden. I
suppose it could fit on a finger, but I doubt I will try it on. As I said
before, vermin, I do not dabble in magic. It seems a bit heavy to me, for a
ring. Certainly twice as much or more than another I have in my possession.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Any chance we could strike a deal
of some sorts then?

With a touch of the Dark Lord's powers, you tell Amorana:
       The petty baubles of your usual decor are a poor comparison for what
       I seek.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: Ah, but no, this is not
in comparison to a bauble of my decor. This is another well known band, one in
possession of the Circle. Believe me, it has weight.
Becka arrives from the east.
Becka prostrates herself before you, hissing: Hail Melkor!
]
You hail Becka condescendingly in the name of Melkor.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Great...
A hard edged, hollow sounding maniacal laughter rings from beneath Becka's
hood.
Becka hisses: Hmm
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Wait a second

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: There are female mages?
Becka hisses: My lord, have you brought a pet?

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: See, you attempt to
barter and pry information, which reveals unto me that I most certainly have
the upper hand.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Now thats new.
Becka nods understandingly.
Becka leers creepily at the magnetic slender female kender with the unholy
light of corruption in her eyes.
Becka gingerly rubs a spot on her chest, remembering the day when
she sacrificed her old being and entered the service of the Dark Lord.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I will say unto you
again... You know the terms. We will meet under them, you will receive the ring
when they are met. There is no more room for talk, only action.

You hiss: Indeed.  You may whip it if you wish.  It's friends delay in its
rescue.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: The Kender for the
ring? Or shall I visit the bin of Mount Doom.
Becka hisses: Oh I may play with it? It seems to be able to speak.

You hiss: You may.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Just so you know, I got wet
pants.

You nod coldly at Becka.
 
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: And its not warer.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Water.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: So stay away.

You hiss: becka But do not kill it.  Yet.

Becka nods understandingly.
Becka hisses: Does it scream, Lord?

You hiss: I believe it can.

Becka hisses: Like the little Elves do? Pharazon tells me such stories.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: It even sings.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Kill, kill, killl, kill the dark
Lord, Hooray.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Or something
Becka hisses: Maybe we should feed to your steed, Lord.
Becka hisses: Maybe it has fur.
Becka peers quizzically at the magnetic slender female kender.

You smile coldly, secure in the knowledge that the power of the Dark Lord
protects you.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I am quite un-furry. Thank you
very much.
Becka withdraws haughtily into the shadows of her robe, remaining silent but
watchful.

You hiss to Becka: You may play with it, Morwen.  Its 'friends' are cowards.
 
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Wait wait wait
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I have an idea.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I DO have something you want...
hidden away...
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Well I have most of it anyway..
Becka hisses: What can you possibly offer to the Nazgul here that he do not
already have?
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: One of your mages seemed to have
lost something I picked up.
With the power the Dark Lord has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       You have naught. Your bluffs and disregard for your friend's life are
       obvious. Come here to retrieve her. Unharmed. As time passes so does
       her life.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Like a satchel of freaky potions.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: He's been eager to get it back.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: It contains most of them still..

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Although I gave some back to its
rightful owner Irk. But all the.. special ones, are left...
You emote: |Celephias| turns slowly, hissing "WHere is said satchel?"
>
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Oh you cant get to it..
Becka curses the magnetic slender female kender violently for defying the Dark
Lord's will.

You hiss: And neither can you from here.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: That is a slight problem...
 
Becka caresses the cheek of the magnetic slender female kender gently with
her long manicured red nails.

The voice of a human suddenly invades your mind saying: I am traveling to
Sparkle now. The ring, heavy and gold as it may be, shall fall to Mount Doom.
The story will be recorded on the Sparkle board. All will know. You have the
terms. I have negotiated as much as will be negotiated. The predator does not
speak this long to its prey... You have become the exception already.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Wait wait..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I am sure we can solve that little
issue of trust!
Becka hisses: Now tell me, kind Kender, where be this Satchel you speak of.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: How can I know you would let me
go?

Becka hisses: It is important that we do not waste the Nazgul's time. He is
very kind but can also be quick to anger if he do not get what he wishes.
Becka lifts the chin of the magnetic slender female kender contemplatively with
one of her long manicured red nails.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Well its in a place none of you
can reach. I could get it for you...
Becka hisses: I am sure you wish to aid us.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I am a kender of my word. Morrison
knows that.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: We have... dealt... before..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Set me free, and I will produce
the satchel in 5 minutes.
Becka ponders the situation.

You withdraw haughtily into the shadows of your robe, remaining silent but
watchful.

Becka withdraws haughtily into the shadows of her robe, remaining silent but
watchful.
Becka rasps threateningly.
Becka rasps: What is your bidding, Lord.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Hey I have my reputation
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: People would think I am liar
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Ill give you the potion. I am more
worth alive to me.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Than the potions

You rasp: I think you should acquaint her with some pain.
>
Becka smiles coldly at you, and you can see the power of the Dark Lord in her
eyes.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I could probably do it in 4
minutes!
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: yeah
Becka traces the outline of the magnetic slender female kender's jaw sensually
with her manicured red nailed fingers.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I really need a bathroom ...
again..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Nice nails.
Becka hisses: Such a peculiar specimen this.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: So we have a deal? Yes?

You hiss: Quite.  Very......talkative.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I said I am restraining myself.
You hiss: But all the while, saying nothing.


The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Nothing? Meh.
Becka hisses: Reminds me of the halflings when on the Iron.

You nod appreciatively.

You hiss: Indeed.
>
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Is it normal to not feel your
arms when beeing strapped in this chair? I think thereäs no blood in my hands..

The voice of a presence suddenly invades your mind saying: I am nearing my
journey's completion. You have mere minutes to respond, or the ring shall fall
into the fires of Mount Doom. Will a member of the tower let a lead such as
this slip through his grasp?
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Thats ok of course..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Just asking..
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Hey, you know. If you kill me
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: You wont have any use for me
Becka places a manicured red nailed finger over her lips and shushes the
magnetic slender female kender clinically.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: And youll never get the potions.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I think those potions are the best
you could get for my life!
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Another h.. kender corpse to pile
up... thats no use.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Right?
mgaze kender
Through force of will, you hold the magnetic slender female kender's gaze,
searching for any signs of weakness.
The magnetic slender female kender looks at you fearfully.
>
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: T-thats a scary look you got...
Becka kneels respectfully before you.
Becka hisses: I will go get the Irons, Lord.

You nod coldly.

Becka traces the outline of the magnetic slender female kender's jaw
sensually with her manicured red nailed fingers.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Irons?
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: What irons?

The voice of a presence suddenly invades your mind saying: I stand now at the
mountain shaped bin. I hold the ring above it. I will let it go in mere
moments. Will you really sacrifice it for a Kender?
Becka hisses: Such an amusing little thing.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: What are they for?
Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       I believe we have an accord. Shortly.
You sacrificed a copper coin.
Becka prostrates herself before you, hissing: Hail Melkor!

You hail Becka condescendingly in the name of Melkor.
>
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Ironing?
Becka glares at the magnetic slender female kender haughtily, hissing: Hail
Melkor!
Becka leaves east.
You hiss: If you are to be freed.....
You hiss: These potions are to be delivered to me.
You hiss: Do we have an agreement?
You hiss: I want them back immediately.

The voice of a presence suddenly invades your mind saying: Then I will await
word that you have brought the Kender to the Prancing Pony. And I will meet you
there.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Sure sure.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Its a deal.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: And elf toes.
You hiss: Know that if you choose to not honor your end of the bargain, there
will be repercussions.

You hiss: Know you this?

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I am a kender of my word.

You hiss: We shall see.  Fetch them immediately.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: I will

You hiss: one moment

You hiss: Be on your way and bring me my potions.

You gesture casually toward the magnetic slender female kender with a brief
wave of your hand. Instantly, the shackles fall from her wrists and soar back
to the pile in the corner.

The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Oh, ouch..

You hiss: Now.

The magnetic slender female kender stretches her tired body.
The magnetic slender female kender chatters: Yes yes
Using the powers the Black Master has bestowed upon you, you tell Amorana:
       I am on my way.

*giggle*

Great you saved it. I got so surprised by the whole thing I forget to log all of it.

This is Genesis at its best I think. When something totally unexpected like that happens, ending up involving 5 people in an event none probably had experienced before, or could ever have expected. All thanks to kender curiosity! And a little bit of player curiosity. And of course two mages and two scops who liked RP and helped make something fun out of it, instead of just simply killing me. In the end, it also led to a better reward for the mages I think... well played Celephias. Killing me would have gained you absolutely nothing but a pretty lousy polearm and a handful of herbs. But thanks to clever RP you got your potions backs instead. I doubt that golden ring was the real one though? If it has been, I suspect we'd all be enslaved by now?:)

Celephias: You must not have believed your eyes when you saw me sitting in that chair I suspect?:) I had absolutely no clue it could be used to capture someone.

If anyone wonders how on earth I ended up in it...

Here's how it started:

I was sneaking around outside Minas Morgul testing their defences, and scrying Celephias to see if he would come out and play. I noticed he was running around invis and did not seem to want to show himself. So very little happened. Then I sent some message saying I had heard they got some elf meat inside, and I'd always wanted to try it. Surprisingly enough Celephias invited me inside to try elf meat. I figured it's probably a trick, but I was too curious to say no, and since he was the only mage awake, I was fairly sure I could always just quickly run out should he try to kill me, so I agreed to visit and see what that could lead to. If anything I would gain some information about what is inside the walls of Minas Morgul.

Once in, and I noticed the innkeeper would not serve me elf meat, I got an idea. What if I could run into the tower and look through it quickly and then run out? That would be a nice story to tell. And when I saw the throne room I figured I could sit in the throne, pretend to be the king of Minas Morgul, and tell everyone about it, and it would be another great "morale" story for us mage hunters! Sounded like a great idea. Now, I was unable to sit on the actual throne, but there were chairs beside it, so I figured that will have to do. And then Celephias walks in... and my plan totally backfired. It ended up a hostage situation, and I eventually lost those potions. But lucky I did have then, I figured it was an acceptable price to pay to walk out of there alive...

So yeah... heh... definitely a rememberable day.
