On their way back out of the Stalking Trees, Gilad tells his friends about his findings. "Seems little we can do with this stave for now, but best we hold onto it. We know so little of the evil we encountered in the valley, I don't want to assume it won't come back to haunt us..."

Sigmund:
"State your name and where you come from in the name of the Empire," he says in a serious tone.

OK, to avoid holding things up we will roleplay Oclur's introduction here. In the main thread, assume it's all sorted out :)

Yes. You have just appeared in a dusty cellar with six strangers!

Sigmund waits for the new fellow's answer to his question.

"I..." he looks at himself.  He looks like himself, but the question is...what does he see.  He has no idea how he got here, and has almost nothing to work with this time.

Great.

The burly man wearing heavy armor and the insignia of a petty officer in the Imperial army does not look amused. "Start talking sense, fellow. This is the 13th Age of the world in the era of the Dragon Age. Who does that make you?"

"Those are terrible answers," Zanne shakes her head. "Just awful. At least pick a name.  Do you know what happened to our friend?"

"I can definitively say that I haven't the slightest idea what happened to your friend, unless I happen to look like him, in which case, I'm still not him.  I can also definitely say that I haven't traveled in time...probably.  Last I recall, I was sitting in a bar, explaining that I really wasn't the Earl of Viscasia, and that in fact that there really wasn't any such place, when swords were drawn and insults for and against my nobility were tossed about.

I keep doing this, but what the hell, for all the good it will do you, my name is Oclur.  I'm a former soldier, Captain in the Emperor's army, retired.  I have no idea how long you'll remember that or what I look like to you.

Sigmund blinks, looking at the man and, seeing he's serious, sheathes his sword. "There, that wasn't so bad. Oclur, well-met. I am Sargeant Sigmund of the Imperial Army. We came here on a mission. You are free to join us if you will fight with us."

In reply to Sigmund (msg # 29):

"Weeeeeell..." He takes a deep breath,"I'm not ....I mean, I keep ending up doing the right thing but not for lack of trying to weasel my way out...but I'm worried if I actively try and help you then horrific things might happen but if I happen to go in your general direction and kind of incidently help out I can't imagine that being so bad...I might also some occasional tactical advice for our mutual survival.  What, if I might ask, is the mission upon which we...er...you...are engaged in?"

"As a matter of fact," Gilad chimes in, "We've just returned from hopefully sealing a hellhole and saving Brooken and the High Ark from an Abyssal incursion. And as charming as your idiosyncratic company is, my friend, you aren't the heroes' welcome we were expecting."

"But after we've received that, I believe the mission my friend is referring to is the matter of orcish attacks upon his-- ah, upon the Imperial family." The bard pauses to think, rubbing his chin. "And there's also the question of where Vethryn's disappeared to. And where we are, for that matter..."

"Anyway, I might have only one name compared to your many, but I try to make it a memorable one. Gilad Rott, wandering minstrel, weaver of tales, and sometime treasure hunter, at your service!" Gilad gives Oclur an exaggerated bow, doffing his plumed hat. Beneath his hat, a bone white circlet appears very tightly fitted around the bard's head, and emitting a slight glow...

Oclur bows in return.  "I am entirely sure if you are a bard, you have heard of me, even if you haven't heard of me as me.  Orcs? Foul things most often, I'd be happy to potentially be in the vecinity when they were attacking giving friendly advice. Sounds quite fun."

Sigmund now looks officially annoyed. "You certainly have a gift for prattling, fellow. If you're coming with us, then let's go. Enough of this." He turns and wavs the others on.

"Very well. " He sighs and says resignedly,"I am coming with " in mid sentance he shifts and blurs, growing gaunt and thin, his armor appearing as a threadbear patchwork scholars robe with various scrolls under his arm, his voice changing from a sonal baritone to an aged base, resounding with the sound of an eloquent speaker who has refined his instrument to instrict others and who does so love to hear himself speak, "You."

"Yes I am still Irvington Blithermore the 3rd...and you totally didn't hear Irvington Blithermore the 3rd....let me merely say that, yes, I am the same guy you heard and saw before with the same name even if you can't hear me say it.  Assuming...you...heard the right one the first time.  I think.  Pleased to meet you Zane."

"Quite the trick!" Gilad claps at the sight of Oclur's transformation. "You must be fun at parties."

"I don't suppose this talent of yours has anything to do with unexpectedly teleporting into strange places-- like this cellar, for instance-- or does it?"

"Well, whatever you're named, nice to meet you. Just plan on dodging something from the sky at some point. It was rocks the first time, and lightning bolts the last time, so I'm sure something is going to fall on us at some point."

Sigmund barks back, "I think a shape-shifter just dropped on us. I suppose that's an improvement. Maybe it'll be puppies next."

"I don't THINK it is a change of shape.  I don't know.  And no, I have never been so miraculously transported before.  Of the things that have dropped on you, have any of them been an anvil? "

Sigmund smirks. "Not since one hit me on the head when I was a babe. Anyway, onwards."

Re: Appendix: And another thing...
We have moved on to your private discussion in the main thread, but we can keep the conversation with Albrechtson going here.

Zanne:
"And all it costs is your strength," Zanne interjects, remembering the feeling of exhaustion that had followed in the wake of creating her braids. "The hell is this 'new realm' called?"


"Yes, it does take it out of you doesn't it" says Albrechtson, finally acknowledging Zanne. "Haven't needed to make any myself for a while. As to the name of this new realm, ah..." and here the worried expression re-appears. "I'm not sure the Owner has mentioned it".

Vander nobly gives Zanne his healing potion and the young sorceress sees the colour return to her cheeks.

Apols, had forgotten this earlier. One recovery spent. +20 HPs.
