    Finding nothing of note in the room, 'Silas' simply and wordlessly searches around for a door. If Silas finds one, he walks out. If not, he goes back down the ladder, disgruntled.
    Because this goshdarn game master forgot to mention if there's another exit to this place. Silly fairy. Do I have to do all the work myself?


    After searching for a bit, Silas finds a door. He walks out of it and up the staircase, only to arrive back in the hallway with Jack and the others.

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Vernon excuses his manners and focus's his attention on Annie for the moment, demeanor calm and soothing.


    “It’s apparent that you have identified me by scent, Annie. You’re correct, I am a member of the Order, or so I should have been. Like yourself I was born in Waise and made to follow in the footsteps of my parents before me. I however did not succumb to their will. At a young age I rebelled against their teachings. In turn, the Order turned the townspeople against me by way of mind manipulation. I escaped this town by killing many of the townsfolk that perused me. For many years I managed to elude the Order and lived much as nomad travelling many lands. Eventually, however, I returned to Waise on account of an irresistible urge to procreate with a member of my own kind. I met a woman of the Order here. We loved each other… for a time. She swore to keep my existence a secret. Eventually, the powers in the child we bore alerted the Order of my presence. I was forced into hiding again, but this time I didn’t leave town. Instead, I changed my physical appearance and hid within the towns itself, taking up the role of the local Blacksmith. I didn’t flee because… I felt the need to keep a watchful eye on my daughter…. Annie, I was the first in a long line descendants to defy the Order. They have long since given up on me.” Vernon winks at her. “It is good to see my own daughter has followed in my footsteps.”



    Annie takes a pace back, a deep breath denoting the impact of what she was hearing. She covers her nakedness by buttoning up the coat in the way it was meant to be worn. In turn, Vernon gives her a nod of approval.



    “Your mother no doubt told you I had perished, or perhaps that I had left when you were young. …She lied to you.”



    Annie does not speak, her face scrunches up in immense deliberation, eyes fixated on Vernon



    Vernon now turns his attention to Ei.



    “My daughters… pregnancy aside, I am grateful for the protection and kinship you have provided. I will endeavor to assist you in any way I am able in your purpose. There is a, uh… little problem, though. You may have heard the wolves outside. No doubt you did. They are not actual wolves, only the representation of them. They’re an extension of the Order, referred to as the Sanction. Members of the Sanction are represented in a way that proves safe in manner of murder without concern for the Order being further identified. Anyone in town who has been witness to the Order will perish at the hand of them today. Ei, before commencing on your personal pursuit, I suggest we take care of this problem. These people don’t deserve to die like this.”



    "Well, I hadn't expected to meet your father, but judging by your expression you didn't either." Ei says, looking at Annie as she finally puts the clothes on as intended. When Vernon resumes talking, Ei resumes paying attention.

    "Speaking of the Order, I had the... Pleasure of speaking with them, though not by my own will. Long story short they declared that they would take no action against us if we do not take action against them. While I do not consider the Order to be an ally, I do believe it is a good idea to leave them be, mostly because I do not feel like it's worth the effort to fight them. Theirs is a doomed endeavour anyway."
    "As for stopping them from killing the witnesses, that is something that would not only cause direct conflict, it is also something I don't think of as being worth the effort. I personally feel that Humans deserve to die, no matter how. This group is no different, and they also have the added benefit of being replaceable."

    Abandoned is doing surprisingly well if I may say so myself, it nearly died at least trice but managed to recover every time. Sure, progress is very, very slow but it's still alive and going.


    Anyway, I think that there are just too few people still around here. MCF's latest changes haven't made it more popular, and I don't think there's more than 30 people who still want to RP here. I think that's also a reason why no new RPs are being made; potential GMs either know that there are very few people still here or think there are and are thus unlikely to create an RP because they fear that they won't get many participants and then move to another forum instead or just give up on RP'ing or something.


    I too plan on moving to another forum in the near future (after Abandoned is finished) in the hopes of finding more potential players to RP with. It has been fun on here but there are just too few people around

    Today is my 7th anniversary on MCF, but I think I won't be doing stuff here for much longer.

    'Silas' gratefully takes the ladder and climbs up it into the unknown above.
    "Well, at least that's something."


    Climbing up the ladder, Silas eventually arrives in some sort of basement room. The floor seems to be a bit damaged by fire, but is otherwise empty.

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Annie's interest is still captured by Vernon, watching his every move with deep interest. Not one of those affected by his spellbinding words, she is nevertheless willing to follow him.

    She gives Ei a glance, stating; "He smells like me." and starts her short trek down the hallway. Passing Jack along the way, she provides him a flirtatious wink while biting her lip. She then enters the dining room to face Vernon, checks over her shoulder to ensure Ei has followed.

    Vernon has his arms nonchalantly folded, back rested against the far wall of the room. He wears an emotionless face.



    Ei, as promised, follows Annie into the dining room, glaring at Jack as she passes him. "Smells like you?" Ei asks Annie, slightly confused. "How do you know that? Besides, why would he smell like you in the first place?"
    As Ei enters the dining room after Annie does, she pulls the door closed behind them to ensure those outside don't get to hear the conversation going on. "So, you wanted to speak to us, Vernon?"

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Vernon throws a glance down the hallway at Ki, then regards Ei with a look of obvious assurance.


    "Call me Vernon. Should I be feeling pleased to see you again at this point?" He was obviously referring to the fact that his mission was not yet complete, but he now looks to Boris who has made no small measure of bringing attention to his presence as he stomps heavily to a close in front of the young and frightened dragon. He waits for Boris to declare his intentions to Chisille before responding.


    "Careful there, lad. Try not to spook those you aim to protect." He looks back past Betty, and raises his hand at Chisille in a calming gesture. "Don't worry, he's no threat to you, Darl'n." His voice is smooth and mildly sedative. If Chisille was provoked by Boris' outburst, she would have no doubt been strangely set at ease by Vernon's voice.


    While Annie continues to stare at Vernon as though he were a fascinating painting on a wall, Vernon speaks once again with Ei. His tone of voice is now... peculiarly seductive. ...Bewitching. Ei would most likely find his suggestion near impossible to refuse:


    "Speaking of chats, I would like to have a private one with you...." His eyes turn to Annie; "...and Anne of the Redferne. Follow me."

    As he walks down the hallway toward the entrance to dining room, he raises his voice in an unnaturally spellbinding, persuasive manner to all others present in the hallway. "The rest of you remain here."


    Vernon enters the empty dining room and awaits Ei and Annie to join him.



    Ei sighs. "You haven't finished what I had you do yet, but Ki still lives so all is fine I suppose." She says, glancing at Ki while Vernon attempts to calm Boris.
    Then Vernon speaks again, suggesting Ei and Annie follow him. Ei looks at Annie to see how she responds.
    "I think it's best we follow him, see what he has to say. After all, if he is a threat to us he can be dealt with, no?" Ei says, waiting for Annie to head to the Dining Room to follow her.

    Quote from Nucleep»

    "Damnit!" 'Silas' yells. "The barrier was stronger than I thought... it managed to scramble the connection!" Wasting no time, he starts trugding through the sewage, trying to locate a way out. "Fortunately the host can disable its olfactory glands..."


    After a long while of trugding through the sewage, Silas arrives at a ladder leading up, but to where does it lead?

    "Finally!" 'Silas' exclaims out of nowhere. "It is done..."


    He puts a hand on the wall, directly in the middle the multiple complex series of runes, and the runes start glowing a sickly indigo.


    "Now, it's been nice knowing you... oh who am I kidding, of course it wasn't!" 'Silas' explains to the others in the room, emphasizing the 'of course'. "Anyway, I've got places to go and people to see, and I can't do that while stuck in this den of a dwelling!" Near the end of his sentence, it becomes a bit clearer that there are two voices speaking.


    He begins to waver and fade away as the magic does its work. "Sayanora, mother-!" His last few syllables weren't heard by the others as he completely disappears from where he stood, and the runes become dust, blown away by a gust of wind that shouldn't be there.




    As 'Silas' vanishes, he soon appears elsewhere. Though, not where he was hoping to end up. Judging by the water that reaches to his knees and the disgusting smell, he's ended up in the sewers beneath Waise.

    Quote from ValkonX11»

    "Very well then. I suppose in that case the proper thing to do would be to say that it's nice to meet you, and tell you my own name," he starts, lifting a hand to his chin as if in thought as he looks down at her, "Though something about you gives me the feeling you wouldn't really care."


    As Ei talks to Annie, Jack looks down at Buttons, claws stuck in the ankle of his boot. "Come now, Buttons. Bob's waiting for you," he states as he kneels down, removing the kitten from his footwear and giving a brief glance at Ei and Annie before returning to Bob. "Well, I've retrieved your cat, Bob," he states, looking towards Silas and Herman as the former finishes his work.



    Jack watches as Silas fades away, the runes disappearing with him. "Wonder where that old man's gone off to..." He considers the possibility of crossing paths with him once more during his investigation of Waise, though given the little speech the old man had given as he left Jack figured it more likely that he had sent himself somewhere far out of the quarantine zone.

    His attention shifted to Herman, in particular the energy that had begun coiling around her... his hand. Jack recalled that Trixie had used magic earlier, but she had used a wand to channel her spells; this was something distinct, most likely some form of magic that the old man now inhabiting her body had known beforehand. Which meant that its effects would be unpredictable, though given the malicious look he was giving Annie Jack concluded whatever the spell was, it would be some form of combat magic.


    As for why he would decide to attack Annie, Jack had no idea.




    Ei simply smiles at Jack. "Don't worry, I already know your name, Jack. Anyway, that cat." Ei points at Buttons. "How much for it?"

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    ...................................................................The Day of the Wolf


    ...Annie seems disappointed in Ei's request. She screws her mouth to one side, thinking on the matter while watching Jack leave with buttons in arm. As she watches Bob and Buttons reunite, the distinctive sound of wolves howling can be heard from outside the mansion. The sound penetrates the walls of the mansion like a haunting melody as Annie turns her attention back to Ei.

    "They spoke to you, didn't they? They made you feel safe.... They told you what you wanted to hear... didn't they?" She extends her arm and gently runs her finger down Ei's nose. "The dogs have come, Ei. The cleansing has begun. No one who has seen them will survive. I want to speak with the-"

    Annie's mouth claps shut as her eyes turn to look past Ei at Vernon, as he enters the hall alongside Chisille and Betty.

    Vernon stops his walk when he arrives behind Ei in the hallway, his eyes immediately meeting with his daughters glare. Though Annie may have recognized his face as a familiar resident of Waise, possibly even a member of the Order, she couldn't have yet known she was looking at her own father.

    "Don't be getting pessimistic on me, Annie," Vernon speaks in a firm yet gentle tone. "It isn't over till the fat lady sings." He lowers his eyes to her stomach and nods. "Congratulations.... Now put some clothes on."




    Ei turns her attention back to Annie. If Jack and such were willing to sell Buttons, they'd mention the price even when Ei's attention was elsewhere. If not, she'd just take Buttons in a not-so-peaceful manner.
    "Well, sort-of. I wanted to speak with you about what they said, and how it matters to us." Ei says, unaware that Annie's attention is currently vested on Vernon. Only when Vernon speaks does she actually notice he's there. "And I see that you are still alive, so you've succeeded at protecting Ki so far. Though, I never did get your name, did I?" Ei asks, grinning towards Vernon. Before turning her attention back towards Annie "But yes, Annie, you really should wear something less... revealing."

    Quote from Nucleep»

    Marion sighs. Should I go with the stranger who I can't understand, or should I forge my own path once again? After a moment of recollection, she eventually decides to go with Leon, walking in front of him and opening the door at the very end of the room.


    The door leads to a small room with a closet. There is one other door, it's open and seemingly leads outside. However, judging by the sounds of footsteps, someone else is already outside near the door...

    (Marion & Leon now share a map)



    Beth stands up, adjusting the wooden box in his grip so it doesn't fall. He turns to look out the window again.


    Beth can see a person walking around in front of the door below.


    Hannah begins taking apart the bed, mainly going after the legs of it though. Upon removing the legs, she tries to stab the legs through the wall, before going further with her plan.



    Unfortunately, the walls are too tough to be stabbed through. As she pulls one of the legs back to stop stabbing however, a hand reaches out through the wall and grabs it, and Hannah pulls some sort of creature into the room.

    Human in appearance, the creature is partially transparent, resembling a woman, she has long streaming hair and wears a grey cloak over a green dress, and her eyes are red. The creature looks at both Hannah and Beth for a while, before letting out an ear-splitting shriek, deafening Hannah and Beth while being clearly audible for everyone else.

    Quote from Tetronym»

    "Well we can't stay here, that's for sure." Piper considers propping the stool against the door, but then thinks it's probably best if they didn't realize they were in here in the first place. She looks out the window for any immediate threats, and exists the building before anyone can find them. Now that she's outside, she looks around for any more lights she could follow.


    Besides the light coming from the building, there is one other light in the distance to the north. Before they can start moving however, they hear something nearby. "Footsteps..." Sune whispers as she looks around. "Perhaps that axe-wielding maniac?"

    Well, we have no mouth, so talking is not an option. So let's just wave at the monitor instead. That'd work, right?
    And if that doesn't work, we should shake our heads. Then again though if waving doesn't work, why would shaking our heads work?

    Quote from ValkonX11»

    Jack continues to avoid looking at Annie as she speaks to him. "...there's been quite a bit of... excitement as of late, though I'm not sure 'fun' is the word I'd use to describe it," he states somewhat reluctantly as he kneels to pick up Buttons; as he feels the now-known to him sensation of being licked, he grimaces, remembering the false Boris from before. Almost instinctively- and against his better judgement- he glances at Annie's face, stumbling backwards slightly as he manages to stand back up rather than fall backwards to the floor again as he realizes Annie hadn't moved at all from her position a few feet away, not to mention the grin on her face and the change in the color of her eyes. He blinks as he hears the voice of the child, uncertain what it is saying- or how it is saying it.

    As the voice subsides, he rubs his face with his free hand in an attempt to wipe Annie's saliva off of it, and as his hand brushes against his nose he realizes that the sharp pain in it has disappeared completely; he presses his nose with his finger, confirming that it has healed. Looking at Annie, evidently confused, he asks, "You... fixed my nose?", uncertain what could have motivated her to do such a thing.

    Jack backs off as Ei glares, something about her presence making him particularly inclined not to incur her wrath. Given her behavior with Annie, he can only assume she's both the lover that she had mentioned before, and the one that Maras had referred to as Lady Ei. He takes a breath, building up his composure before stating, "I take it you are the one that Maras and Lyudmila serve... Lady Ei?"


    Ei's glare gives way to a slight smile as Ei simply nods. "Indeed. I see those two have yet to learn a thing or two about keeping such information secret."

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Amusement could be described as Annie's demeanor while watching Jack's response, yet at the posing of his question as to why she might be inclined to heal his nose, she simply tilts her, oddly curious, replying;

    "What?"

    Ei now arrives.

    Annie spins about about, like a child turning after a long awaited surprises to face Ei. Her expression the purest picture of delectation.

    "Ei!" The name is spoken as though Ei had been the water found after days lost in the desert. She springs from her place, ignoring the cloak for now, practically lunging as she wraps her arms around her lover, immediate locking their mouths for a lengthy and passionate kiss. Once the moment has ended, Annie does not question Ei's absence. Before pulling away, she brings her mouth to Ei's ear, and whispers softly these words:

    "I want that cat."

    Now standing back to allow Ei room to answer Jack's question, but first stating for all to hear "I will stay and talk with these people", she takes the cloak from Ei's hand and puts it on while Ei and Jack converse.

    Annie, however, does not wear the cloak as a cloak was intended to be worn, but rather like that of a cape. Securing the top button, the cloak is draped over her shoulders, her arms not sleeved, her frontal region still uncovered.

    It was soon after this, while Annie is admiring her new attire, that the crack from the adjacent kitchen sounds. Yet she does not flinch. She noes not seem surprised at all. She simply raises her face, shifting her eyes down the hall to meet those of Herman's. Once Herman returns her look to Annie, Herman receives a voice in his mind. Herman may have been too far away for the others to hear his words, but apparently that was not the case for Annie....

    "Not if you die first, Herman."



    Ei happily returns the kiss, not caring about being in plain sight. After all, all those who'd witness it are doomed anyway, no reason to care about the thoughts of a dead man.
    "That one huh? I'll figure out a way." Ei whispers, looking at Buttons while she does so. "But first, can I talk to you in private? It's a bit important, but you can talk with these people afterwards, okay?"
    As Annie seems to either not figure out or not care about the purpose of the cloak, Ei sighs. She considers correcting Annie, but that can wait

    Well, seeing as how we lack a mouth we can't tell it to wake up. Seeing as how we don't have a nose we can't poke it with our noses. We need to check if we have fingers. And if we do, we should repeatedly poke the screen! Either that or be amazed at the fact that we actually have fingers, that'd work too.
    If we don't, then we should either freak out or tap the screen with our... hand I guess?

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    "We are not so unalike." The entity draws ever closer to Ei, as yet displaying no hostility. "I, The Order, understands a sense of vengeance. But Vengeance must be tempered.

    The entity does pause for a moment, before reverting to the topic of Annie:

    "We have every right to call Anne our child, for that is what she is. Do not think of her as human, for she is not. She is our child. As much as a princess is daughter to a King, a Prince a son to a Queen, Anne is of direct royal bloodline to our species. This fact can not be denied, especially by ignorance such as yours. You have no idea who she is or what you are dealing with. This is why we have found it in ours and your own best interest to terminate her existence... However!"

    The entity takes a further moment to allow the information settle with Ei, then continues:

    "We have found you to be neither born of the light or born of the darkness. You are... what we call... Rogue. We therefore would have no interest in you had you not shown interest in our daughter. This has never happened before. An outside relationship of intimacy with one of our royal members is unprecedented. But an unprecedented event must be treated accordingly. We have therefore come to a decision that treads upon new ground for us. You may consider our decision a test of your virtue....

    ...I, the Order, hereby grant you pass. I assign Anne of the Redferne to your keep. Consider her your... companion from this day forth. But rest assure, Ei, if our test in your virtue fails us; If Anne's existence outside the Order creates problematic instability to the universe, and we are almost certain it will, then we will hold you solely responsible. If that happens... we will return and terminate both of you without mercy. Believe me... we have ways to terminate even those who can return from that fickle thing called death.

    Furthermore, we will continue to eliminate from Waise all witnesses to our cause, with you and Anne as the only exceptions. Ei, as your own gesture of good faith in return for what we have granted you this day, we expect you will keep word about the Order silent. You will speak of us to no one, and you will not stand in the way of our task to eliminate any remaining witnesses from Waise. I hope I have made myself clear....

    SO GO!" The entity waves one arm in Ei's direction, creating a tornado-type wind that encompasses her person. "Return to your lover! But take heed to what I have said this day. We will be watching. Do not fail her. Do not fail us. Do not fail the balance of life.... Or we will return with our own vengeance."

    Upon the closing of the entities speech, Ei finds herself standing in the attic of the mansion, her feet planted in precisely the same place she had been taken from.



    Ei curiously listens to The Order's information, their promises and their threats until she finds herself back in the attic again. She looks around the room, cautious about the potential risk of another illusion. After she concludes that there is no other illusion, she looks around the room. It takes her all of three seconds to realise Annie is gone and that it's daytime, but she soon figures out that Annie probably woke up and is in another part of the building. Deciding that it's probably a good idea to go and find her, Ei fades into a thin, black smoke, leaving the attic empty.

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Buttons lands beside Annie. Annie rises to her feet, caressing her rounding belly. Her lack of concern denotes the explosions ineffectiveness in harming her unborn child. She stares down at the cat, partially smiling as it speaks to her in its native tongue.

    "You're a cute little thing." She replies to the kitten in a gentle whisper. "I would hope for a pet like you...."

    Jack approaches cautiously from down the hall. Annie is aware of his intentions. She watches intently. When Jack is near to her, she speaks in a soft and... undeniably seductive tone:

    "Hello Jack. Having... fun?"

    Jack crouches down to pick up the kitten, as he does so he feels something wet probing his cheek, it moves swiftly to his nose, then whips about to tickle his ear. It is Annie's tongue. Though she did not move from her position, she had extended its length the few feet it took to make contact with Jack. If he were to look up at Annie in this instant, her tongue will snap back into her now grinning mouth. One of her eyes are purple, the other red. Another voice can also be heard. This voice is unmistakably coming from within Annie's belly. The voice of the child within her womb, though its words are unknown, perhaps heard by Jack as nothing more than playful gibberish.

    As the voice within her grows quiet, Annie remains perfectly still, watching Jack with only the movement of her eyes. She is allowing him to take the cat. What may then come as a surprise to Jack, is the pain in his nose... it is no longer present. His broken nose has been healed.



    "You want a kitten? We could get a kitten if you want one." Ei says, her voice coming from behind Annie as the black smoke gathers and Ei emerges from it, holding a large cloak which she gives to Annie to wear until they find actual clothes. "Sorry for not being present earlier Annie, I had some business that needed finishing but I'm here now." She says, smiling. "Shall we go, or do you want to chat with these... people some more first?" Ei says, glaring at the other people in the hallway.

    Sunset departs this house, as she left this house she notices that it is morning outside, she takes a deep breathe and looks side to side for a second, before she goes off to search another house. Taking her time as she does so.



    The next house doesn't provide anything new either. It too is basically empty. Either looters have long since taken everything, or the owners of the house took everything with them as they fled.

    It responds: "We are aware of your infatuation for our child, Anne of the Redferne. Is she also one you seek to avenge?"

    Ei will continue to be under the aforementioned influence. Lies are not an option or even to be considered.


    "I do not believe you have the right to call Annie your 'child'. I believe slave would be a more accurate term. As for if she is the one I seek to avenge? No, for she still lives. Those I seek to avenge have long since ceased being among the living."

    Piper's investigating is cut short by the noise she hears from outside. "Oh no," she says, listening for the footsteps. Luckily, it seems they were going for a different door. Piper looks around the room to see if there's anything to defend herself with, if the need arises. "They might be coming this way."


    Sune starts whispering, just in case.
    "So then, what is the plan? Do we run?"

    There isn't much around that could be used as a weapon, except for a small wooden stool


    Hannah looks around this room, to see if there is anything useful about, before heading up the stairs.
