[If cross takes the time to examine the book as well, he'll come to the same conclusion that the books likely contain clues to some currently incomplete cypher. The magical theory is still quite a bit over the heads of the arcane users present.]


Harmonia, The Loop: Adrastia, Pytor
Eventually the siblings make their way back to the inn. Did you want to keep walking for a while? Or would you rather stop back here? Adrastia asks.


Harmonia, The Toad’s Toe: Adran, Cross, Jerry, Merrick
Rautant scratches his chin in thought, More volumes? No... not that I'm aware of... though the way he always carried that one about, it seemed quite a habit to him. I'm sure he must have written others... perhaps left them various places he'd been. He did seem intrigued at the idea of Dominani's library. At least I gather he was interested in it from the last time I read this journal. If he did meet with the man and speak at length, it's possible something of his might have made its way there...

No worries, WizKid. The site has been down for a week due to a corrupted file, so you didn't miss much lately, lol.

After Cross' own examination. "Yes...there must be more... there is always more..." Cross will be quite relaxed in this comfortable studying environment.

Adran asks Do you perhaps know where we could find this man and his library? Or any other locations that Tannis frequented?

Rautant grins. Tannis was a roamer, i don't know that he frequented anywhere really. He was always in search of the next clue to his theories or a way to 'cross the planes' again... As for Dominiani, he is a doctor who treats madmen. He is well known as an intelligent and charitable man; both here and in the country of Gundarak to the north where he lives.


[Adran might recall the girl they offered to help is betrothed to Dr Dominiani, and she mentioned if they help her she would speak to him about allowing them access to his vast library.]

Merrick nods. It does seem a bit providential to find such a thing as the journal. Perhaps it was left like a trail of some kind by Tannis for any others trapped to find their way out...

is there anything else in town people want to do? Havent heard from Mel in a bit...

Adran responds to Rautant Come to think of it I believe I might already have a contact to this man you speak of. Adran will then try to compare and contrast the symbols for as long as he can in the journal and the book from Aglos to see if he can decode the meanings.

Adran studies the journal, but the code to the symbols seems incomplete. He is able to make a few comparisons, but is convinced more information is needed. It was like trying to solve several formulas without enough known variables. The little he does get only convinces him more so that the crux of the work must be powerful, valuable information indeed.

[Alright, lets get the group back to the inn and on to the next day. Sorry i know i've been the main source of delay recently]

Jerry checks over the book too just in case she can glean anything further.
If there's anything that looks like a map she'll try and make a copy.

Adran writes down any notes he finds pertinent and then suggests they return to the Inn......

"No. I see no point in walking further. My head is clear at the moment and no amount of walking will strengthen my resolve any further. Let's rejoin your companions for the time being." Pytor pulls open the door but waits for his sister before entering.

Jerry finds no maps in the journal, but makes a few notes concernimg the symbols. Adran makes some final notations and Rautant bids them good-day.

in twos and threes thr group filters back into the inn.

[Jen, if you want to go ahead and do the performamce posts we can move on]

As the day begins to fade Mira appears from the stairwell, adjusting the red bodice as she drifts into the common room, the lute held tightly in her grasp, the tight red bodice acents her hair nicely as she sashays forward in a long green skirt.

"Hi, its great to be back, I feel like I am home." Taking her place on the stool she strums a simple chord, "This is a song for someone I left behind, someone I hope to see again some day."

The end of the Innocence.

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standing by
When "happily ever after" fails
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers dwell on small details
Since daddy had to fly

But i know a place where we can go
That's still untouched by man
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind

You can lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

O' beautiful, for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie

But i know a place where we can go
And was away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind

Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

Who knows how long this will last
Now we've come so far, so fast
But, somewhere back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say good bye

Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence


As the song ends she begins to smile and breaks into a second song..

Just a KIss.

"Lyin' here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
I'm caught up in this moment
I'm caught up in your smile

I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I'm holding you in my arms
No, we don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
No, I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
It'll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
It's never felt so real, no, it's never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
No, I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No, I don't wanna say goodnight
I know it's time to leave, but you'll be in my dreams

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
No, I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right, with just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight..."


"Isn't love fun? I mean... That screwed up moment when you arent sure quite what is going on, and your mind goes off in different directions..." Scanning the crowd she notes who she knows is present before continuing to speak. "So I'm sure someone will ask, the Bodice is once again from the Amazing Marie, I loaned my best one to a very good friend.." Drifting off for a second she continues.

"On an unrelated note, love doesnt always go as planned..."

Betterman.

"Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man
She dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man

Oh
Talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know
She tells herself, oh
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along
Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man
She dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man
She lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man
She dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man

Yeah
She loved him, yeah, she don't want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah, that's why she'll be back again

Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man"


"Of course, there are times when it goes right, and you are left feeling all confused and you don't quite know where you are, and.. I'll just sing my song."

Say you love me

"Have mercy, baby on a poor girl like me,
You know I'm falling, falling, falling, at your feet,
I'm tingling right from my head to my toes,
So help me, help me, help me make the feeling go.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
And there's not another living soul around,
Then you woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

Have pity baby,
Just when I thought it was over,
Now you got me running, running, running for cover.
I'm begging you for a little sympathy,
And if you use me again it'll be the end of me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
There's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

Baby, baby, hope you're going to stay away,
'Cause I'm getting weaker, weaker, everyday,
I guess I'm not as strong as I used to be,
And if you use me again it'll be the end of me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
There's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
Yhere's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.
Say that you love me
Say that you love me

Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'.."

Once back at the Inn, Adran will sit in the bar area and enjoy the entertainment and an ale while waiting for all to return....
