In reply to Dne Utrotare (msg # 278):
The cat shakes his head, and poi ts to a number of knotted bits of string and feathers pinned to its vest
"I tie my own lures, and keep not the company of worms."

You notice that his tail is slowly fading away.



Any hidden lore folks?

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dilandua takes a few wary steps away from the 'catfolk', Dilandua's entire focus is now on the creature.


OOC:  No 'lore' type skills at all on this character.

Reanna, concerned about an ambush, readies her crossbow and moved to cover.

No hidden lore here...

More of the creature begins to fade away, its paws and legs disappearing along with both fish and lures. And the pole besides.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis starts to joke "What, does the cat have your tail..." but then the rest of the creature starts to disappear too.  Instinctively, being in the presence of magic like this, he does what he knows to do.  Aegis strikes with the knife.

Dilandua just waits patiently, but the warrior does slip the sheathes from one of the spears.  Just in case.

In reply to Aegis (msg # 283):

Nothing of the cat is left but the teeth, and given that the creature was SM-2, you beed a hit by8 to hit its mouth. The creature yowls, and heads off. Aegis knife passed through the area that was its face
Without encountering anything solid.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis scowls.  As in he's really frustrated.  His teeth clench, and he sheathes his knife angrily. The word "Mejik!" slips out of his mouth like he was spitting mucus.  Then he uncorks a bottle of dwarven spirits and takes a good solid pull, wiping his mouth on his shoulder.

OOC Ready to move on.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dilandua sheathes the spear.

"That was unwise Aegis.  Offering threats and violence to others when they offer comradery is bound to create an enemy for you."

A pause while Dilandua scans the surrounding area for any other signs of fey.

"Hopefully we don't all suffer the cat's vengeful nature this night.  Might be wise to leave an offering out to soothe any trouble feelings.  Honestly though, courtly things were never my strength.  It's equally likely the cat will be satisfied having made Aegis a bungling fool."




OOC:  Dilandua has neither the eyes to see any further threats, nor the proper manner to know how to smooth over this breach of etiquette.

18:43, Today: Dilandua rolled 14 using 3d6.  Per 10, any other signs of creatures around.

18:46, Today: Dilandua rolled 13 using 3d6.  Savoir-Faire (Fairie Court) 10, how to smooth over with Grimalkin.

Re: Against the Mageguild
“Damn cat... no worms... bah!”  It’s enough to make him want to pluck out his feathers.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis pointedly ignores Dilandua.  He's the hired help for the job.  If they didn't like how he carried himself, they were welcome to pay someone else for the work.  There was always something to do.

Maybe Dilandua was right, but he didn't know what to expect from the cat person.  To him it looked like magic.  When the creature started disappearing, he didn't want to take any chances.

OOC Yes, I know Aegis caused all of that.  He wouldn't think so.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dilandua continues to keep an eye out as we recommence.



OOC:  No worries.  Dilandua was prepared to let Aegis get stabbed a few times before stepping in if the weird catfolk started fighting instead of running off.

A dish.of cream would be the ideal offering, although nip, an herb sold openly in Northport and locateable with survival or naturalist might help

Trans has no idea about such things and waits until everyone is ready to keep moving.

Dne is ready to get moving.  And frankly, this talk of cats is starting to make him nervous.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Aegis stands off to the side, scowling.  He alternates between rattling coins in his hands, and flipping a dagger in the other.

OOC Ready to go, at the behest of the people who hired him...

With everyone seemingly waiting around, Reanna starts walking off.

"Not sure that was. the best approach..." she mutters.

Dne climbs up about ten yards into the air, and goes higher if necessary, until he gets a good look ahead.

Reanna, still uncomfortable with what had happened, keeps her crossbow handy as they travel.

Re: Against the Mageguild
Dilandua moves ahead to scout the bridge before the main group gets there.



OOC:  19:59, Today: Dilandua rolled 11 using 3d6.  Per 10Observation 9.  Scouting bridge.

Failures, unless it's pretty obvious, Dilandua will miss any traps, ambushes, etc.

Dne returns most of the way back to earth and reports his findings.
