PostSubject: Talking swords and related fun   Tue Jan 02, 2007 11:36 am

Despite being blind, Nameless is able to teleport the entire group (albeit with some of them having to give Jalus Baine’s corpse company in the portable hole) to the Cathedral, significantly scaring a couple of guards. The group is quickly ushered into a waiting area and soon brought to a meeting room, where Ythana Morr is waiting. Having been informed of Nameless’ condition, she has a scroll to remove blindness, which she uses on him.

The Archierophant is exceedingly pleased at the recovery of Jalus Baine’s body, which she has four acolytes carefully remove to one of the private sanctums, and seems quite impressed at the group’s destruction of the undead horde, the unholy altar and the tree of woe. She is, however, just as puzzled by the sword, whose first introduction to her is when it pipes up and says, “So – you the big chick in this temple, right? Nice place you have here!”

Once she has heard the entire story, Ythana asks Gareth and the others to give her a few minutes with the sword. Those outside can hear the low mumbling of speech through the door. After a couple of minutes, there is the sound of her raised voice, saying, “You cannot speak to me li…,” but then it is lowered. The two voices get softer and after a couple of minutes, the door opens to reveal Ythana, her face looking slightly redder than normal.

She invites the group back in and says to them all, “Thank you for the work you have done. The blessings of the Flame are on you, but then you already know that after your previous experiences in the Wastes.” Turning to Gareth, she adds, “I shall arrange for Jalus’ body to be laid to rest in the proper fashion.” She hesitates for only a second, and then says, “But you may keep the sword. If you wish.” The sword, now lying on the table, promptly says, “Yeah! You need to get me out o…,” and then falls silent at a glare from her.

OOC: You know Ythana really said "GET THIS THING OUT OF HERE".... Gareth didn't need detect thoughts for that one.

Upon hearing her thanks, "It was an honor to serve the Flame, and I am always happy to help again." Picking up the Eternal Blade "Is there anything I need to know about him?". Gareth sheathes the Eternal Blade on his back.

"That area was a blight on the existance of all, it felt good removing it. I think the only thing better would be to banish some evil entity from our realm of existance."

Oncce everything is complete, Gareth will head back with the group to the Gray House to get cleaned up. He will then go looking for Lalia.

OOC:How long has Gareth known Lalia?

OOC: BTW isn't there stuff with Lalia, and the Silver flame festival we were going to handle in forums?

I think everybody got that without detect thoughts.

Even before Ythana can reply, the sword says, “Hey! I am right here, you know!” The Archierophant says, “I know little about the Eternal …,” at which point the sword interrupts and says, “Endless!” She sighs and says, “…Endless Blade, and I gather he will be happy to tell you whatever you need to know.” Though it doesn’t move, Gareth gets the impression of the sword nodding and hears a soft, “Damn right!” in his head.

See next post first.

OOC:How long has Gareth known Lalia?

This makes it just over 5 months. Of which at least half, maybe more, has been spent in different places. It's a whirlwind romance.

Quote :

I thought about it, but we generally covered the festival. And as for Lalia, I'm basically figuring that Gareth and she have been meeting up on a regular basis since the group got back to Sharn (about 2 weeks to the point when you return from the Depths with the sword).

The group departs, the sword commenting as they leave, “Now there’s a broad who seriously needs to get a greatsword in her scabbard, if you know what I’m saying!” As they are about to depart the Cathedral, the acolyte Golar stops them and says he has a message for Gareth. A bugbear stopped by asking for him, and left him a message. The message is scrawled, badly written, on a sheet of parchment, and says, “To paladin Gareth, and others of the Guardian Angels – I do request meet you at the Cracked Mirror inn [note: the inn that the group had visited shortly after reaching Sharn, where they met the shifter brothers] in Callestan. I will be there for three next days from 10 morning to noon. I will pay for your time. Dhurmhaac.” Golar says that he has never seen the bugbear before, but describes him as elderly and very muscular, dressed in laborers’ clothes. The description does not ring a bell for any of the Angels.

The group heads back to the Gray House and, on the ride back, the sword reminds them three times that they need to get him to a library, comments four times on the skycoaches in particular and the changed look of Sharn in general, and asks Six a dozen questions about exactly what he is, especially regarding what he does for “pooping” and sex.

Back at the Gray House, Fett is waiting for the group. Before he settles down to hear about their adventures – and be roundly amused by the sword – he gives them a message that was delivered for them by a nondescript looking halfling. This message is hand-written too, but comes in a sealed envelope. It says, “To Gareth, the bastard Flamer: If you’ve got the balls to back up your words to my boss, come face me in the Burning Ring. Bring your buddies. They can join in if they want or patch you up afterwards, since I’ll try not to kill you. Talk to the halfling with the green hat at the corner of the Changeling’s Kiss in Firelight at 8 pm on the 5th, and he’ll show you where it is. They’ll be saving a place for us. If you’ve got the balls, that is.” It is signed HB.

The Angels presume that it is from Halak Boromar, the ‘security chief’ they met at the Boromar residence. Fett says that the Burning Ring is a place that offers gladiatorial combat, featuring amateur and professional warriors and, much more rarely, monsters. It has no fixed location shifting from place to place in the districts of Firelight or Torchfire in Lower Menthis. The Watch has tried to shut it down, but it always finds somewhere else to function. Fett’s description reminds the Angels that when Balan had offered them some jobs to shave time off Nameless’ time in custody, one offer was to help crack down on gladiatorial combat in Sharn.

Evidently, it is a time for messages, since three more arrive the next day. Or two, to be precise, since one is a copy of the Korranberg Chronicle, with the first story about the Guardian Angels’ adventures. This one details the trip to Xen’drik and the travel to the island. It is fairly well written and has effectively no embellishment.

The first of the other two messages, borne by an Orien courier, is a sealed package. Within is an ornate letter, which invites the Guardian Angels to the Tain Gala in Skyway, the part of the city that floats above the highest towers, on the 6th. It provides directions to the Tain mansion there.

Gareth immediately recognizes this as the huge monthly fest he has heard of, where the Sixty Families of Sharn are perpetually invited. When Fett, who is going out the door on some work, hears about the invitation, he laughs and says, “Oh boy – this means you’ve really arrived in high society! My group went there once, and I think it’s safe to say that it scared the heck out of some of us as much as our worst battle. But I had a great time. I’ll tell you about it when I get back.”

Shortly after he leaves, another messenger stops by, this one a more familiar – and less welcome – one. It is Killian’s messenger Flan. He greets the Angels cheerfully, compliments them on their recent fame, and says he has a short message from Killian, namely, “I have some information about your ‘short friends.’ If you’re interested, stop by the Lucky Nines and say ‘hello.’”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Time-wise, this is the morning of the 3rd. Lots of invitations, as you can see. You have the bugbear (3rd-5th), Halak (5th), the Tain Gala (6th), and Killian (3rd-4th).

Let me know which one(s) you go to, and if there's anything else you guys are doing. Fett is a good source for information about some of these subjects, which I'll add later. He's also been doing some digging around for Six on a couple of matters, which I'll also add later.

Once EB starts with the pooping and sex talk, Six will pull out his copious notes and start the questioning. Hopefully this will clear up some points.Wink

Otherwise, lets talk to the Bugbear then Killian. Gareth's call on the halfing. Also talk to Cannith about the warforge offers. I'm looking for information and workers.

Six finds EB remarkably well-informed about human anatomy and sexual practices (and pooping, for that matter), considering that he's a sword. EB is also very willing to discuss the subject, and, assuming Gareth doesn't try to lock him up somewhere, in the course of an hour or so Six discovers all that he ever needed to know about humans and sex, and a few things he didn't. If Six needed any proof that the non-warforged races are terminally screwed up, he has it now.

Quote :

The bugbear, Killian and the halfling thing (assuming Gareth is interested) we'll play out in-game. Some of the things Six gets info about I'll post, esp. since you (Dave) won't be there. But first...

* * * * * *
When he has a chance, Fett also talks to Six privately about a couple of the things the warforged had asked him to do. “I personally delivered the sculpture to the Boromar estate,” he says, “And I received a note for you from them yesterday, delivered by Orien courier.”

Opening the note, Six finds it to say, “Thank you for your kind gesture. As you can expect, my father was highly offended by your companion’s comments, but I have calmed him down and you should not fear any repercussions from his end. While I do not expect to see your group working for him, I am sure we can coexist peacefully if we do ever happen to interact. If I can ever be of aid to you in some way, please let me know. Ilyra Boromar.”

Fett also says that he has arranged a meeting with the Tyrants, for a couple of days later. It is at an inn called Velvet’s in the Dragoneyes red light district of Lower Tavick’s, which is the base of operations for the Tyrants, he says. “I will have to go along with you,” says Fett. After a slight hesitation, he adds, “I hope that you aren’t going to have me do too many things that you will want me to keep from the others, since that might lead to trouble. I can especially see Gareth taking it badly.” He grins and adds, “Though he’s not going to be reading my mind again any time soon,” and indicates a ring on his left hand. “I had been planning to pick up a ring of mind shielding for a while, so I finally did. I’m sure he doesn’t see how invasive it is, but I have some issues being around a person who can know what I’m thinking.”

Fett also has some information about the Cogs for Six. He explains that the Cogs are really the industrial base of Sharn, where the forges and foundries lie. Most people don’t live in the Cogs, usually traveling there to work and leaving again. The majority of the large businesses are owned by the nobles and merchant princes of the Upper City. Nolan Toranak, the dwarven council representative from the Cogs, mainly represents the wishes of these rich owners. He’s also well-known for disliking warforged, having lost his children to them during the War.

A fairly constant population of the Cogs are the warforged workers. Some of them congregate at the Red Hammer Inn, whose owners Blue and Crucible are two of the more prominent leaders, as is the warforged priest Smith (who tends a shrine to Onatar, god of Artifice and the Forge, called the Pool of Onatar’s Tears in Blackbones). Fett suggests that if he wants to know about the warforged situation and the Cogs in general, he talk to them. Fett has met them, since the Blades of Arakhain worked with Smith in helping Merrix d’Cannith enact the proposal to the warforged and persuade the City Council to let it pass. Six won’t need to set up a meeting, but should just visit, since Smith is usually at his shrine and the other pair are often at the inn.

He continues, to say that neither Boromar nor Daask have any real influence in the Cogs, or at least the two industrial Cogs. That is not true of Khyber’s Gate, which is the central Cogs area, where all the criminals and fugitives in the undercity congregate. There is no central authority there, but Daask is the most powerful force, and that is where they are based.

Fett says that Daask has apparently just put out the word that they’ve rendered the Guardian Angels a non-threat to their operations, and they seem to be stepping up local recruitment. There has been no recent mention of the Angels by the Boromars, but then again, the dinner at their estate occurred only a few days ago.

* * * * * *
OOC: The above info is shared directly with Six and only him, so Dave, you get to decide what part(s) of it to share with the others. For the rest of you, since you'll be reading this, remember that it's OOC info, so keep it as such.

As Six and the Eternal Blade talk Gareth will continually silence the sword when he mentions something that is inappropriate for outsider company or just inappropriate for Gareth's sensibilities.

Oh make an escape route from some common area of Sharn to the outskirts. Don't tell me or anyone else about the details just let me know when it is set up.

Six will go to the Red Hammer Inn looking for the owers and the priest. After some small talk asking about the metal biscuts, speak about the warforge agreement.

Six wants to tell them about the harness and the ancient warforge, but heneed to feel out the trio's disposition. Back up may be required.

"Oh, come on, Gareth! Okay, fine!" There is the sense that the sword is looking around, and then it says, "Hey, metal man! Yeah, you - Six. Want to take a walk?"

If Six agrees and Gareth hands the sword over, it spends a good while chatting with Six about the stuff he wants to discuss and all sorts of random things.

And if Gareth doesn't hand it over, it spends its time alternately expanding and contracting into various weapons, and singing really crude songs loudly, being a significant pain until he lets it go with Six.

Fett laughs. "At least you're confident. And the rings generally go for about eight thousand galifars or so. It's not exactly an unpopular magic item about changelings, though few can afford one."

Okay. I'll send you some info about that, and we may play it out next time you're there. But here's a little more info on some things Six wanted to do:

1) Find out about binding magic from library & museum.

Result: Six finds some info at the library, mostly just a more detailed version of what he knew. It says that the gnomes of Zilargo have always controlled the information about elemental binding, and it’s their biggest economic secret. Though they work with Cannith, Lyrandar and Orient on many elemental-bound devices and transportation vessels, they do not share the information about binding with the dragonmarked houses. The binding of the rakshasa rajahs at the end of the Age of Demons or of the daelkyr into Khyber by the Gatekeepers really has no relationship at all to elemental binding, sharing a word but not much else.

The Endless Blade accompanies Six to the library, if he'll take it along, and spends a lot of time reading up about the history of Khorvaire over the last 500 years.

2) Talk to Flamewind about prophecy and rakshasas (whole story) and about harness.

Response: Flamewind is very interested about the rakshasas and the Key, but esp. in the fact that one had managed to get her (and apparently Sora Teraza) to have a fake prophecy. She says she has no idea how that could be done, and thinks it’s likely to have occurred through some specific item the rakshasa had rather than through a spell. She also has no idea about the harness, never having seen one like it before, but she mentions that she isn’t actually knowledgeable about magical items, but simply picks up things about them via her visions.

She can also use legend lore (all gynosphinxes can) and analyze dweomer (unique to her) 1/day each. Legend Lore says nothing about the harness (not important enough) but Analyze Dweomer says what Six already knows, that it is a kind of item that attaches itself to and grows with its owner. She detects no amount of binding, however.

3) Talk to Kalashtar about quori and about harness.

Result: Six finds Havakhad at the Shrine of Il-Yannah, as always, but he is quite ill. It is simply old age. He says that they’ve had nothing major occur with the quori over the intervening months. His divinations reveal that they had some plan after his – hoped for – death at the hands of the Angels, but they have shelved it for now and are simply waiting for him to die naturally. Time, after all, isn’t a big concern for them. And he knows nothing about the harness.

Sense motive. Is he just acting desperate or being serious. If it sounds like he is being serious "Why won't I be able to use you again". And if he gives a plausible reason (i.e. extra dimensional bags do something to him) then I will put him in there. Otherwise, domination of wills baby let's see who has the bigger ego Very Happy

He's dead serious.

Quote :
If it sounds like he is being serious "Why won't I be able to use you again".

This time, the sword's tone isn't at all jocular. "Because I won't allow you to. Let's understand something here, Gareth - this is a partnership. You wield me because I let you, and I am used by you because you choose to do so."

"Remember, I'm not just a piece of metal like Six's chain or Korm's sword. I'm sentient. And while I don't react to things exactly the way you do, there are some similarities. How would you like it if someone stuck you inside a bag, with no light, no sound, and nothing to do but wait till you were pulled out?"

"I'm not asking you to appreciate my opinion or sense of humor. Flame knows I don't exactly appreciate yours. Or rather, I think it was removed when you were a child. But that's not my problem. All I need to know is that you'll do the right thing when we're in a fight, and the rest of the time, you can do whatever the bloody hell you choose. And I expect you to treat me the same way."

"And since you don't need me right now, take me out of the scabbard and give me to Six. And don't ever - ever - put me in a bloody extradimensional space without asking me about it. Or you'll never use me again. Or not without way more ass kissing than I think you might like."

Quote :

So - what does Gareth do?

BTW, don't go counting on the standard Will save vs. ego thing. That's not necessarily what will come into play here. IC, Gareth would have no reason to expect it, since he has next to no knowledge of intelligent weapons, and they are incredibly rare in Eberron.

Gareth proceeds to spend a good afternoon/evening with Lalia. OOC: What does the sword say when he see's Gareth's honey.

Depends on whether the sword actually gets to meet her, i.e. whether it's in the haversack or not.

If Gareth stick EB in the sack, Six will replace it with a regular sword and have EB become a spiked chain. Gareth need never know. EB try to restrain your laughter, we need to do this quietly.

Acting as stern as possible but with fair diplomacy "Fair enough, I will not place you in a bag and I did not realize your point of view, but I need you by my side.

Pausing for a moment, "I will give you a compromise - you behave yourself in other company, meaning those not of this group, and you stop trying to trollop off and I will take you to the library and where you would like to go. This is obviously based on time permissions. I do spend quite a bit of time in the library studying." Waiting for another second, "Do we have an agreement?" If the sword agrees "Oh, one more thing, I realize you can see your surroundings but how did you plan on turning the page in the book" Gareth gives a noticible grin.

When that is setteled "Oh, and in the best interests of us - as in people who may and try to steal you which will give us more grief - please watch who you speak to....not everyone is nice and not everyone knows how to act and react around an intelligent item"

"Really?" says the sword, in a sarcastic tone. "I am shocked. Completely shocked."

"Not exactly," says the sword, but it's tone is a lot friendlier. "Like I said, you don't have to use me and I don't have to have you as a wielder. This is just something which is convenient for us both. Part of that means you don't own me. Sometimes, I might want to spend some time around someone else, and I'll expect you to respect it, just like I'll respect it when you need my services."

"And you don't need me when you're sitting around at home, and you really, really need to have some kinda other weapon! I mean, come on!" It chuckles and adds, "I appreciate you being so attached to me and all, but we just met. It's way too early for a commitment!"

"I'll hang around with you right now, but when you're going to bed, hand me over to Six. Hey, Six!" The sword is clearly addressing Six now. "You said you don't sleep, right? Cool! Me neither. We'll chat then." Its attention switches back to Gareth. "See - he doesn't sleep either, so we can keep each other entertained while you're snoring. Perfect."

Getting quite annoyed with the sword, "A two way street, yes it is, but you are demanding a bit much - and you are not in the best of positions to make demands from me - trust me there is a nice vault the Silver Flame would love to keep you in and the only thing preventing that is me using you to fel the evil in this world. That is not a threat of punishment from me, but that is what the Silver Flame is likely to do. They would rather keep you safe in a vault then have you out there being used.

"If you want to speak with Six while I am sleeping, fine, when I am awake or we are on a quest you are at my side. My schedule, as the rest, fluctuates and I will not sit and wait for you to get back. As for multiple swords, I carry one." Thinking for a moment, "By the way, there is another reason you need to remain with me at an almost consistant basis - you have been attuned to me. You have some extra abilities imbued in you - these abilities grow in power as I grow in power."

EDIT: Added some stuff

Six leaning over to Gareth. "You do realize EB is a being not an object. One of the many implications is, it maybe no more 'attuneable' to you than Nameless is. You need to check out your assumtions." Six thinks about his recent research into binding magic.

Hefting EB Gareth activates the flaming ability, "I am pretty sure my assumptions are correct. So please stop questioning me at every angle unless you can offer expert advice."

Other than the first time you lost your sword, I don't question you I just point out what is in front of you. I'm just a simple scout.

"Well I am glad you have a lot of humility, but you have questioned me at many numerous points. You have a habit of doing that when it comes to me and with topics which you have no expertise or experience in."

Hell yeah! Of course, I'm not forcing you to keep the sword. YOu're perfectly free to give it to Six, for example Very Happy!

The sword sniffs dismissively. "I wouldn't be too sure about that. Go talk to your lady friend at the Cathedral about it."

Quote :

"Huh! Or maybe you grow in power as I grow in power. It's been 500 years for me, you know. It'll take a while for me to get back in form, so maybe you're just leaching off me."

"Yeah, Six - you tell him!" There's a slight pause and then the sword says, "Okay, okay - so I'm attuneable. But that doesn't mean you get to tell me what to do."

Gareth wrote:

"Hey!" says the sword indignantly. "You play nice with Six. I'm beginning to like his shiny metal ass!"

And the flaming ability propmptly shuts off.
