1:1660 The Yaksha II by Hollowpages
You take some time to ponder over the woman’s question for you – you can’t shake off the fact you have no idea what the heck she means exactly, although you hazard a guess that her ‘true self’ might end up looking completely inhuman. You don’t know, but, despite everything running throug
1:1659 The Yaksha by Hollowpages
For a long moment, no one speaks or moves. You feel a sense of unease not unlike what Fia described to you not long ago, yet this one is more prominent, and it’s partly because you’re feeding off the two selkie’s unease, too. This must be a huge deal.
Still, while they seem uncerta
1:1658 The Planes of Existence by Hollowpages
While you recognize there’s a lot going on, you can’t help but yearn to understand as much as you can, and with that in mind, you can’t deny your earnest curiosity.
“If you don’t mind,” you reply after a beat, “I’d like to know more about these… planes.”
1:1657 The Wish Made II by Hollowpages
After giving it some quick thought, as much as you can spare given the limited time you have before Maazi can no longer remain outside of his lamp, you sigh internally as you make your decision – you feel it would probably be best you focus on the Shard location where Maazi’s Master is apparentl
1:1656 The Wish Made by Hollowpages
You figure you should ask the more important question of Maazi next, so, you do.
“Maazi,” you say as you collect yourself to get the question out. “What did your Master wish for? And what does it have to do with why you turned me into a selkie?”
“Aye,” Moirine say
2:1901 Buddy by Drifting Dragon
You thought for a moment and realized that the easiest person you could cross in one way or another, who would still help you regardless would be Buddy. You had spent the least amount of time with him, and he seemed absolutely loyal to Duke. It was an easy choice for you when considering what you we
1:1655 Maazi the Beaten III by Hollowpages
You have a few potential routes you could go with trying to get Maazi the djinn to tell you about his master, but in the end, you decide you want to be the one to try and press, if only because your ‘good cop’ may well be more useful for the time being.
I’ll do it, you reply, for n
2:1900 Truth by Drifting Dragon
“You know what…” You replied with a tinge of regret and shame in your voice. “I want to be honest with you.” The two of you shared some pretty sincere eye contact for a moment as you continued. Still the talkative dog gave you a moment to continue. “I just wanted you to know that I’m n
1:1654 Maazi the Beaten II by Hollowpages
You make your decision after some careful consideration. “Who is master, Maazi? Why aren’t you with them? I don’t know a lot about this whole djinn and master thing, but, I would expect that you’d be with your master until they’d used up their three wishes.”
Maazi regards you
1:1653 Maazi the Beaten by Hollowpages
You consider the options – of which there are quite a few, admittedly – on how to handle this, or if you even want to at all, before you decide you want to maybe start this whole thing off as pleasantly as you can. While you’re leery of the djinn, of course, given your own experience with you,
2:1899 Lie by Drifting Dragon
“Of course I am!” You replied. “Then why can’t you move the sarcophagus? Why have you been telling the others you’re so all powerful if you can’t even do that?” The sentiment stung your stomach like the sting of a wasp. You took a moment to craft your response. “You’re right.” He
1:1652 Trick Magic IV by Hollowpages
However, while you might’ve thought it a good idea to change the wording of the wish given more time (if only for the vagueness in how Moirine spoke it), for you, you feel she managed to rattle the djinn perfectly enough thanks in part TO the vagueness. Plus, by the sounds of it, the djinn spoke a
1:1651 Trick Magic III by Hollowpages
After thinking about it, you shake your head. Honestly, I trust Moirine’s judgment on this. I’m not sure I could magically figure out a way to word the wish anyways, no pun intended. You shrug. She’s smart, like you said, and I feel more comfortable letting her be the one to make the decision.
2:1898 Duke by Drifting Dragon
To you, it was no question at all. You were going to bring Duke. He was probably one of the physically strongest out of all the group- despite his older age. You figured that his powerful muscular physique had been enough to match yours. Your decision wasn’t even a choice. Duke was the first perso
1:1650 Trick Magic II by Hollowpages
You mull over the two choices for a beat, pondering the ramifications of one over the other, until you decide that you feel it’s better to wait for the signal, as it were, before you go inside with Fia. You trust Moirine regardless, yet even so, you’d rather be safe than sorry in this situation
2:1897 Bring someone with you into the tomb. by Drifting Dragon
“Wow. This looks amazing.” Casey whispered to the group, just loud enough for everyone to hear. Everyone was completely enamored by the scene before them as you all entered the main room just before what you all assumed to be the final temple- the room you all were waiting for, the space in whic
1:1649 Trick Magic by Hollowpages
You mull over the choices for a moment, and while you aren’t entirely sure regarding whether inside or outside would be the better way to go, you do decide on the other.
“I say we let Moirine be the one to interact with him first,” you remark, although you do pause to consider some
1:1648 Playing Catch Up by Hollowpages
While you do find yourself being curious about the nature of the shopkeeper (because you can’t help yourself there), you decide against it for the time being. Instead…
“Let’s go talk with Fia,” you say. “Maybe she knows more about this situation.”
Moirine nods i
2:1896 DO AN EXCHANGE ROUTE by Drifting Dragon
“Hmmm.” You thought to yourself. “Give… Myself?” In your head, you wanted so badly to appease the higher ups at work but at this point you were already so invested with this plot that now, you wondered what it would be like to experience this new transformation instead. Of course, you knew
1:1647 The Right Shard by Hollowpages
You breathe in and out once as you decide you’ll go back to waiting for Moirine to return. You have what you need to know (provided this broonie creature is being honest, but to your eyes, it doesn’t seem like it’s being deceitful or come off malicious).
“Thank you for the inform
