A conversation starts as it usually does asking what the human needs and such. and he says something about his friends being dead.
Without even thinking twice about it Chandra says "Yea.... If your friends dead then someone probably killed him"
I promptly fell out laughing as she slapped me and made the excuse that its to early. heh.
Standing outside Nevermore at around 4am with strange furred creatures inside as well as 2 vampires.

Jack/Brady: “Hold! Leap.” Jack walks over and stands in front of the vampire on the ward.
Jack/Brady: Looking over his shoulder at the group. “Jack be nimble.”

Brom- Hey guys, that might not be that good of an Idea. There's a lot of them.
Townsfolk- Nah, we can take 'em!

Townsfolk- Great! That means they're low! let's get 'em! YAAHHH!!!
As the townsfolk charge and Brom disappears behind another tree.
Thirty seconds later, 10 townsfolk and three Black King's soldiers are laying on the ground, and the remaining soldiers are chasing the other townsfolk into the woods.

Finally when I had killed the thing I found a small black chaos fairy in the center of it. They seem to be fairly tough too the first one I encountered took a lot of damage and 2 slays to take care of."
Baroness Midien: "Wow, so how many slays does it take to get to the totsie roll center of a shambling mound?"
I\'m standing there to one side of the door, Click is opposite of me, and Illander standing between us. We\'re all looking out trying to see what\'s up with this black winged reptilian thing that keeps walking around. Illander keeps making snide comments about it, confident in the protection offered by the ward. When it stops and looks straight in the door at us, Illander makes a funny face, to wich the thing sticks it\'s head THROUGH the still up ward, it\'s head between mine and Click\'s, and only an inch from Illander\'s. Illander, never taking his eyes off this beast says quietly, and simply,
...I\'m going to go change my underwear now.\"

At one point, the characters come upon a room with a couple of medusa\'s throwing stone gazes. Jeremy, playing a chaos tainted human earth caster, is turned away from the action and talking to someone when a stone gaze packet hits its mark on his back. So he plays it out.
