When he learns that Louissa will<BR>>> be going with Ted, he instructs the two of them to surrender all<BR>>> weapons and other important belongings to their compatriots. The<BR>>> knights reappear and flank Louissa and Ted, and lead them further<BR>>> into the Enchanter's sanctum. The rest of the company are shown out<BR>>> of the pyramid and back on to the street.<BR>>> <BR>>> They find Father Montessoro outside talking with the female guard,<BR>>> the Wolfen priest keeping one
eye on the little girl who is giggling<BR>>> while a small pebble flies in circles around her head.<BR>>> <BR>>> The priest sees his companions and sighs. "Alas, so Mrrlyn did take<BR>>> your friend, Ted, and one other too, I see. The one named Louissa,<BR>>> as I recall. Well let us hope they're imprisonment is a short one.<BR>>> This knight was just telling me that the King will see you around<BR>>> midnight, and so she has suggested that she take you where you need<BR>>> to go and then return you to the Palace when the King is ready."<BR>>> <BR>>> He beckons to the female knight. "This is Lady Amathea, a Knight of<BR>>> New Camelot. Lady Amathea, these are the people who rescued our<BR>>> soldiers from the clutches of the hated Splugorth minions. I must<BR>>> contact my superiors, but perhaps we shall meet later."<BR>>> <BR>>> With that the priest bows and walks
quickly towards a small stone<BR>>> building in the distance, with stained glass windows and a cross<BR>>> atop it.<BR>>> [/GM]<BR><BR>>> [Lady Amathea]<BR>>> The knight bows herself. "As the priest said, the King will see you<BR>>> in a few hours. Can I show you the quarters that have been prepared<BR>>> for you, or perhaps you would like something to eat? We have time<BR>>> for both."<BR>>> [/Lady Amathea]<BR><BR>> [Oz]<BR>> "I already know where my quarters are, lady knight. And I can conduct<BR>> my companions to the guest quarters if need be. But we could use a<BR>> guide to find the consulate of the kingdom of Poughkipsee. Do you<BR>> happen to know where that is?"<BR>> [/Oz]<BR><BR>[GM]<BR>"You are looking for the Embassy Street." she says. She points up the road. "It is past the palace, and first street to the right. I believe the Ambassador of Poughkeepsie's is at Number 5.
If you like I can escort you."<BR>[/GM]<BR><BR>> [Vesper]<BR>> Vesper heads out into Camelot to regain his energies. Still fatigued<BR>> from the pronto rift he opened and in need of some restoration for<BR>> him to communicate with some friends in North America he decides to<BR>> look for any nearby ley lines in the area.<BR>> [/Vesper]<BR><BR>[GM]<BR>The pyramid is beneath a nexus point. There is no better place to regain his strength.<BR>[/GM]<BR><BR>[Lady Amathea]<BR>Lady Amathea sees Vesper's exhaustion. "Sir, your are taxed. I can see that clearly. I can see that you are lead to your quarters for some rest."<BR><BR>She whistles loudly and another knight comes running up. "Yes m'lady!" he says breathlessly.<BR><BR>"I think this man needs rest." she replies. Turning to Vesper she says "Sir Godfrey will take you to your quarters if you like."<BR>[/Lady Amathea]<BR><BR>> [Alex]<BR>> "Everybody needs to be safe," Alex responds.
"Louise, Ted, do either<BR>> of you have radios to check with us? Real sorry I cannot stay."<BR>> [/Alex]<BR><BR>[GM]<BR>Alex gets no reply from Ted, but Louissa replies after a moment. "I'm sitting in a rather cozy apartment. I think there's a guard at the door, but I'm not sure. If this is a prison, I hope I'm sentenced to life!"<BR>[/GM]<BR><BR>> [Alex]<BR>> Once she finished with her good byes, Alex will go to the embassy to<BR>> pass the message along and then see about shopping for ammunition and<BR>> mini-radios for anybody who needs one.<BR>> [/Alex]<BR><BR>OOC: I'll leave it up to Vesper to decide whether to continue with the company or seek some quiet time.<BR><BR>[GM]<BR>Lady Amathea leads those that decide to seek out the embassy up the street, past the pyramid complex and the palace and to a row of ornate houses. There are about two dozen houses, all narrow but three storeys high at least, with fine marble carvings of
men and beasts.<BR><BR>Alex immediately recognizes Number 5 Embassy Street to be much like the buildings she saw all those weeks ago in New Poughkeepsie; Louissa's homeland. It's marble statues are of a huntsmen and a bull. Two guards in foreign-looking armor, clearly of Coalition manufacture, or at least modeled on Coalition armor, but modified, stand at attention.<BR>[/GM]<BR><BR>[Lady Amathea]<BR>Lady Amathea salutes the guards. "These people are here to deliver a message to the Ambassador. They are the King's guests and can be trusted."<BR>[/Lady Amathea]<BR><BR>[GM]<BR>The guards nod, and swing open the doors, beckoning the company inside. The inside of the embassy is lushly decorated, with red carpets, wood paneled walls, a chandelier of silver and crystal above. A wide spiral staircase leads up to the next floor.<BR><BR>One of the guards instructs "Wait here." and then goes to a side door, knocking loudly. A moment later an old man in a suit
appears. The guard speaks to him quietly and he nods in return.<BR><BR>The man approaches the company. "I understand you have a message for his Eminence. Might I inquire as to what it pertains?"<BR>[/GM]<BR><BR>-- Aaron Clausen<BR><A href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" ymailto="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</A><BR>_______________________________________________<BR>Taocowpbem mailing list<BR><A href="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net" ymailto="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net">Taocowpbem@zork.net</A><BR><A href="http://zork.net/mailman/listinfo/taocowpbem" target=_blank>http://zork.net/mailman/listinfo/taocowpbem</A><BR></DIV></DIV></div></body></html>
