Academy Regrets (for quest Academy, ghost, bear)
« on: January 18, 2014, 08:00:49 PM »
l self
This man's form is distorted by the similar projections of himself on the
mirrors, making him appear wavy and fractured.  His clothing is more distinct
at the center of his mass, a tunic and cuirass of a uniform visible on his
torso.  His face is the least distinct of his form, the featureless expression
defined only by shadows. 


Medical Quarters
Entering from a large doorway to the west, this white, spacious room seems to
be set aside.  Cots line the sides of the room, at regular intervals, left
free for those who might need aid.  The smell of antiseptics and wounds
permeates the air, as well as the occasional moan of pain from the unlucky
student.  The room itself has a bright and cheery atmosphere, with white
drapings and bright architecture, an attempt to stifle the more bloody and
painful nature of the wounds dealt within.


[Exits: west]
     Several long simplistic cots are stretched out here.
Riothelle is resting on a long simplistic cot.
Eialis stands here.

You cause an eerie sound of weeping to echo throughout the area.

Riothelle cocks his head to the side.

Riothelle stands up.

Riothelle leaves west.

[walking around]
The Entrance to the Training Yard
As the hallway goes on, light filters through the large, gray and white marble
hallway from the gate ahead.  The sounds of battle can be heard just through
it, and a few sands filter into the otherwise spotlessly clean floor.  The
statues continue up until the end of the hallway, and a pair of gigantic
marble statues lie at the sides of the gate, swords held high above it.  The
gate itself is perpetually open, allowing trainees freedom to move in and out
at will.  To the south, the hallway returns back to the other sections.


[Exits: north south]
Riothelle is here.
A siriyu trainee is standing here.
(Red Aura) A quevran trainee is here.
A muscular canidae trainee practices with his blade here.
A muscular canidae trainee practices with his blade here.
A lodekryn janitor stands here, picking up the mess from the trainees.

You cause an eerie sound of weeping to echo throughout the area.

Riothelle says in common 'Hello?'

[fighting going on]

You say to Riothelle in common 'Help me, help me!'

Riothelle says in common 'I don't believe there is anything I can do to help you.'

Pecho to Riothelle>You feel the clinging of ghostly, cold hands on your body as you dart about, fighting.

Riothelle shivers uncomfortably.

You say in common 'Help me, help me!'

Riothelle says in common 'That isn't very polite you know.'

You cause an eerie sound of weeping to echo throughout the area.

[More fighting]


Riothelle lashes forward and claws a quevran trainee with a massive swipe.
Riothelle's puny claw lacerates a quevran trainee!
A quevran trainee is stunned but will probably recover.
Riothelle slowly slits a quevran trainee's throat.
A muscular canidae trainee stops training and turns to look at Riothelle.
A muscular canidae trainee says in common, smugly, 'Hmph.. the weakling deserves it.'
A quevran trainee splatters blood on your armor.
Riothelle gets 45 silver coins from the corpse of a quevran trainee.
Riothelle gets a crust of moldy bread from the corpse of a quevran trainee.

You say to Riothelle in common 'Help me, help me!'

Riothelle says in common 'Spirit, I can do nothing for you, magic is beyond my grasp...'

The weeping intensifies as the air blurs between Riothelle and the corpse of a quevran trainee.

You say to Riothelle in common 'Help me, help me!'

A siriyu trainee says to Riothelle in common 'Oy, mate, might want to get the healer to check that out.  Seems like you're gettin' poltergeisted.'

You cause an eerie sound of weeping to echo throughout the area.

Riothelle says to a siriyu trainee in common 'Do you mean the nurse to the south of here?'

A siriyu trainee says to Riothelle in common, nodding affirmatively, 'Yep.  Usually everyone here gets healed really quickly, so there must be something up.'

Riothelle says to a siriyu trainee in common 'I'll take your advice, not sure I need a ghostly friend...'

[walkwalk]
[I switched into the nurse.]

Medical Quarters

painful nature of the wounds dealt within.


[Exits: west]
     Several long simplistic cots are stretched out here.
(Translucent) (Ghost) A ghostly figure of a man is here.
Riothelle is here.


You are seen as:
Eialis is here.

A short siriyu female is here, dressed in all white, with the symbol of the
Academy upon her clothes.  From the style of her clothes, as well as the fact
she tends to the students that come to rest within the infirmary, it is safe
to presume that this woman is the nurse.  Pointed ears peek out from behind
likewise white hair, betraying her siriyu heritage, and her lips contort in a
friendly, if impatient, smile.  It is clear that all one needs to do to get
help from this woman is to ask for it. 

Eialis blinks and blinks and blinks, then leans forward, peering intently at a ghostly figure of a man.

l ghost
This man's form is distorted by the similar projections of himself on the
mirrors, making him appear wavy and fractured.  His clothing is more distinct
at the center of his mass, a tunic and cuirass of a uniform visible on his
torso.  His face is the least distinct of his form, the featureless expression
defined only by shadows.

You say to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'Oh my!  You don't look like one of the trainees.'

A ghostly figure of a man says in common, mournfully, 'I'm not, I'm not!  I need help.'

Eialis regains her composure and peers curiously at Riothelle, as if waiting for some explanation.

Riothelle blinks a few times.

Riothelle says to you in common 'Oh, yeah... I was told to come see you about this spirit thing.'

Riothelle waves his hand passively.

You say to Riothelle in common, nodding, 'I can see that!  What happened before that?'

You motion towards yourself.
You say in common 'I am known as Eialis.'

You say to Riothelle in common 'Call me that instead, please.  I've never seen something like this before.'

Riothelle motions toward himself.

Riothelle says in common 'I am known as Riothelle.'

You say to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'A moment, sir!  We will speak to you once I have a better idea what's going on here.'

Riothelle says to you in common 'Though folks usually just call me Riot.'

You say to Riothelle in common, awkwardly, 'Riot... right.  So what happened?  You didn't happen to kill a... somewhat old human, did you?'

Riothelle scratches his head for a moment.

The weeping begins again but this time with a clear tone of protest before you shoots a ghostly figure of a man a look, silencing it.

Riothelle says to you in common 'I don't recall doing that...'

You say to Riothelle in common 'How did you come upon this... gentleman then?'

Eialis enunciates the word as she glances to a ghostly figure of a man, though her expression is dubious.

Riothelle shrugs absently.

Riothelle says to you in common 'All of a sudden I was hearing its howls...'

You say to Riothelle in common 'Ah, it seems we will not know until we ask him then.  Shall we?'

Riothelle says to you in common 'I suppose not, though I've never done this speaking to spirits business.'

Eialis makes a little dainty motion in the air with her fingers, tracing out sigils in white light.

You utter the words, 'spirit speak'.
Riothelle's ears are lit by a spectral glow.

You utter the words, 'spirit vision'.
Riothelle's eyes are lit by a spectral glow.

Riothelle looks at a ghostly figure of a man.

You say to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'Now!  You speak.'

A ghostly figure of a man wrings his hands mournfully as he turns to Riothelle.

Riothelle swishes his tail back and forth silently.

A ghostly figure of a man says to Riothelle in common 'Help me, help me!  I have many regrets, so many, as I am bound to this world, and one lies here at this Academy.'

Riothelle says to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'And whats that got to do with me?'

A ghostly figure of a man says to Riothelle in common 'Oh, be merciful, kind sir!  Help me!  There may be something in it for you!  I do not need the material goods anymore!'

Riothelle scratches his chin with a smirk.

A look of panic crosses a ghostly figure of a man's face at Riothelle's query and he wrings his hands some more to keep from lunging at Riothelle.

Riothelle says to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'Go on...'

A ghostly figure of a man says to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'Oh, when I was a wee lad here, there was a girl I liked, but she did not return my feelings... so I stole!  Oh, how foolish I was!'

Riothelle says to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'You stole what?'

A ghostly figure of a man says to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'She was just about to graduate, and I took the package her mother had given her!  What regret I have now!'

Riothelle nods at a ghostly figure of a man silently.

You say to a ghostly figure of a man in common, blinking, 'And then what, sir?  Where is the package now?'

A ghostly figure of a man says in common, looking very distressed, 'Augh, but I did not know!  It was terrible... I will show you if you will let me see it before I go!'

Riothelle says to a ghostly figure of a man in common 'What do you want to see?'

A ghostly figure of a man says in common, mumbling, 'The package, the package.  I hid it in the stuffed bear's jaws here, deep inside!  Please...'

Riothelle looks at you.

A ghostly figure of a man edges toward Riothelle with a pleading expression, his hands held out in supplication.

Riothelle says to you in common 'I'll see if I can find it, you have a job to do here.'

You say to Riothelle in common 'I have to stay here for the other trainees... be careful in there.  Take him with you.'

Riothelle nods at you.

You say to Riothelle in common 'Guildmaster Yorum is in the area if you need help.'

You nod.

You return from Eialis.

You switch into a ghostly figure of a man.

[Exits: west]
     Several long simplistic cots are stretched out here.
Eialis stands here.
Riothelle is here, with his hands behind is back, shifting weight from one foot to the other.


Riothelle says to you in common 'Follow me.'


You follow Riothelle.
A Large Trophy Room
Numerous trophies line the room, all of them representing battles the
guildmaster has won or animals trapped over the years.  In one corner, is a
legendary white stag and a rugged white wolf, mounted as if engaged in combat.
Heads from various creatures line the walls, ranging from a ferocious boar to
the head of a yeti.  Suspended from the ceiling hangs the most prized
possession of the guildmaster, a huge front claw from an an ancient red
dragon.  The claw is mounted holding a massive shard of crystal.  A simple
wooden door leads off to the south, while an archway leads back to the hallway
to the west.


[Exits: south west]
     A gigantic, stuffed white bear stands prominently in the center of the room.
Riothelle is here.

You say in common 'Here, here!'

You say to Riothelle in common 'You will have to climb up and look in its jaws.'

Riothelle says to you in common 'Alrighty... Of course it would be something tall...'

Riothelle mumbles something and sighs under his breath.

Riothelle peers around the room.

Riothelle says in common 'Nothing to climb...'

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'A chair from the dining hall?'

Riothelle says to you in common 'Or I could just use my claws.'

Riothelle smirks a bit as he reaches out a paw-like hand to touch the bear.

You say to Riothelle in common, embarrassedly looking away, 'I did not wish to suggest to use your err... felis-ness.'

Riothelle stops before putting his claws in and scratches his chin before grinning even wider.

Despite Riothelle's weight, a gigantic, stuffed white bear remains standing quite tall and sturdily.

Riothelle says in common 'Well... there goes trying to push it over.'

Riothelle says in common 'To the kitchen.'

Riothelle leaves west.
You follow Riothelle.

[walkwalk]

l
The Mess Hall
The aroma of food from the mess hall would cause even the most hardened
adventurers to balk.  However, the guildmasters must feel that bad food builds
character because large quantities are heaped into dishes and bowls.  Neat and
clean, the mess hall is always in order.  Long tables line the room and many
cooks and servers dash about, making sure all have enough to eat.  A large,
windowed wooden door leads to the hallway to the east.


[Exits: east]
     A menu posted on a signboard sits at the entrance to the mess hall.
Riothelle is here.
Manir stands here, cooking up something.

Riothelle looks at Manir.

Riothelle says to Manir in common 'Might I borrow a chair?'

Manir says to Riothelle in common 'Here for some food?'

Manir says to Riothelle in common, grumpily, 'Can't have a chair if you ain't going to eat.  Next thing I know, you lot are beating each other about with chairs.'

Riothelle says to Manir in common 'I may have to try that now that you mention it.'

Riothelle chuckles politely.

Riothelle says to Manir in common 'Anything bigger with meat besides the jerky?'

Manir says to Riothelle in common, smoothly, 'Two jerky.'

Manir looks at Riothelle pointedly, a ladle held in an almost threatening gesture.

Riothelle audibly sighs.

Riothelle says to Manir in common 'I walked into that one.'

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'He drives a hard bargain.  You'll make back what you spend, I promise!'

Riothelle buys a small slab of beef jerky[2].

Manir says to Riothelle in common, now visibly happier, 'There.  Now remember to bring it back.'

Manir pushes a chair made of oak toward Riothelle.

Riothelle gets a chair made of oak.

Riothelle says to Manir in common 'Thanks.'

Riothelle leaves east.
You follow Riothelle.

[walkwalk]
Riothelle leaves north.
You follow Riothelle.

possession of the guildmaster, a huge front claw from an an ancient red
dragon.  The claw is mounted holding a massive shard of crystal.  A simple
wooden door leads off to the south, while an archway leads back to the hallway
to the west.

[Exits: south west]
     A gigantic, stuffed white bear stands prominently in the center of the room.
Riothelle is here.

You are seen as:
(Translucent) (Ghost) A ghostly figure of a man is here.

This man's form is distorted by the similar projections of himself on the
mirrors, making him appear wavy and fractured.  His clothing is more distinct
at the center of his mass, a tunic and cuirass of a uniform visible on his
torso.  His face is the least distinct of his form, the featureless expression
defined only by shadows.

Riothelle drops a chair made of oak.

Riothelle pushes the chair across the floor to rest next to a gigantic, stuffed white bear.

A ghostly figure of a man wrings his hands anxiously as he watches Riothelle.

Riothelle quickly hops onto the chair and begins to stretch as far as he can to reach the bears mouth.

Riothelle's arm is just long enough to reach into a gigantic, stuffed white bear's open mouth, but not very far in.

Pecho to Riothelle>Nonetheless, you feel your hand hit what feels like a paper package, but it is jammed inside.

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'Move your hand around!  You just need what is inside it.'

A ghostly figure of a man nods eagerly.

Riothelle tries to slip his fingers inside the package with a determined look on his face.

Pecho to Riothelle>The package is jammed firmly, but your claws slip into the opening and hook onto what feels like a thin chain.

Riothelle says in common 'I think I got it!'

You say to Riothelle in common, excitedly, his form shimmering, 'Hook it out, let me see!'

Riothelle slowly and carefully brings his arm back out of a gigantic, stuffed white bear's mouth.

With Riothelle's arm comes a broken locket with a length of hair hanging from it, swinging from his claws.

Riothelle says to you in common 'Was this it?'

Riothelle holds up a broken locket containing a dirty lock of hair.

You say to Riothelle in common, reaching out his hands for the locket, 'Oh, that is it!  I ruined her, I did.  She did not return my love because she was betrothed to another!  And he left her because she lost his trinket and he took her to be a harlot!'

Riothelle says to you in common 'I could see why you would have regrets then.'

A ghostly figure of a man tries to touch the locket in Riothelle's hands, but his own hands slip through it.

Riothelle says to you in common 'Now we just need to return it so you can rest.'

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'I think she died of a broken heart then, her future ruined, she unwanted.  Oh, such regret!  Oh, but it was good for me to have seen it.  It is over.  I am sorry for her.'

Riothelle says to you in common 'Oh...'

Riothelle grimaces before trying to smile awkwardly.

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'You take it with you.  Put it to good use.  Give it to another who will value it!  I am glad, I will be at peace if you do that.'

Riothelle says to you in common 'I will try to find it a home.'

You say in common, mournfully, 'It is a secret that should not lie in the belly of a bear... I am glad, thank you, thank you!'

Riothelle puts a broken locket containing a dirty lock of hair in a simple cloth backpack.

Riothelle puts a small slab of beef jerky in a simple cloth backpack.

Riothelle puts a small slab of beef jerky in a simple cloth backpack.

You say to Riothelle in common, mournfully, 'Feel around in the package more... there are her gold savings.  Take them.  The secret is no longer upon my chest...'

Riothelle nods at you.

Riothelle very quickly jumps back into the chair, ramming his arm into a gigantic, stuffed white bear.

You say to Riothelle in common, babbling now, 'You are kind, sir felis!  So kind!  I am going, going...'

[ghost disappears]

Riothelle keeps reaching for the coins despite his footing.

Pecho to Riothelle>Some of the coins fall into your hand, although there are some more remaining where you cannot reach.

Riothelle says in common 'Stupid bear!'

Riothelle shakes his arm, trying to dislodge more coins.

Pecho to Riothelle>You manage to grab a handful of the coins.

Riothelle nearly squeals as he feels the money in hand.

Riothelle says in common 'More!?'

A chair made of oak finally wobbles and falls over, leaving Riothelle hanging with hand in a gigantic, stuffed white bear's mouth.

Riothelle audibly sighs as he hangs from the mouth of a gigantic, stuffed white bear.

Pecho to Riothelle>The coins in your hand slip and one or two fall out from between your fingers.  You feel yourself sliding down off of the bear though without the support of the chair.

Riothelle says in common 'No no no!'

Riothelle tries to keep a hold of as many coins as he can.

With a tumble and a crash, Riothelle falls off of the bear and onto the chair, sending gold coins flying everywhere.  While Riothelle is mostly unharmed, the chair now has a very wobbly leg.

Pecho to Riothelle>About 5 of the gold coins are in your hand, while the rest are all over the ground.

[Exits: south west]
     A pile of gold coins lies here.
     An oak chair is here, lying on its side.
     A gigantic, stuffed white bear stands prominently in the center of the room.
Riothelle is here, standing on the chair, reaching into the bear's mouth.

Riothelle franctically knocks over the chair and begins grabbing for the coins.

Riothelle gets 20 gold coins.

Riothelle squeals loudly as he counts the coins before depositing them in his purse.
Everything is at the end of the to-do list.  Even the things at the front of the list are at the end.

I miss stuff like this! *tears*
