Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali bows. "You honor us by letting us in on this, Grandmaster. What does the Order ask of us?"
Joe: [OOC] Kiss-ass.
Soo: [OOC] We're infiltrating the cult, we're SUPPOSED to act reverent.
Joe: [OOC] I could use my super lying powers and tell him that he just gave full control of the cult over to us.
Kyle: [OOC] As troubling as the idea that the idea could work, let's not.
Joe: [OOC] Fine, why don't we just get foursome of baked potatoes and I can lie to him that it's the magical crystals.
Ian: [OOC] We are not just going to lie past the entire plot arc.
Dane: [GM] Grandmaster Trant nods. "Oh of course deary. We actually have a lead that one of the crystals is right here on Carna. Did you know how this island formed?"
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "Err, the Makers said there should be one there?"
Dane: [GM] "In a sense, muffin. The island was formed from a massive super-volcano that rose from the sea long, long ago. The ash from the last great eruption filled the soil with fertility. We chose to establish our base here because I felt that the verdant nature growing from the remains of cataclysm so wonderfully mirrored the Order's visions for the world."
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] Beefstorm flexes for absolutely no reason. "But what does that have to do with the crystals?"
Dane: [GM] "The volcano that formed Carna was still semi-active during the Old Velthri period. The ancients revered the site as a connection to the elemental concept of fire and earth. We believe they built a temple somewhere in the island's interior."
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "So they built a temple on a half-active volcano? Pretty stupid ancients."
Dane: [GM] Trant looks horribly offended at Beefstorm's comment. "What did you say?"
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "I didn't say anything. We were trading recipes for interesting omelets."
[Dane] ROLLS. [GM] RECEIVES RESULTS.
Dane: [GM] Goddamit.
Dane: [GM] "Oh right, I guess I got confused. Which one did you want again? I have a great one for avocado."
Joe: [OOC] I love this character.
Kyle: [OOC] Stop doing that.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari cracks her knuckles. "A temple deep in a volcanic island. Sounds like a pyromancer is about to earn her pay."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali smiles. "It's cute you think you get paid."
Ian: [Mari Shasho] "The smell of charcoal, the roar of the blaze; not all payments are money, miss."
Ian: [OOC] Some shotgun-wielding wizards just want to watch the world burn.
Joe: [OOC] Do you think if Lord Beefstorm told Mari that she studied a different type of magic, it would be so convincing that she would actually change spell schools?
Kyle: [OOC] He's amazingly good at lying, not reshaping reality.
Joe: [OOC] But magic is reshaping reality. Therefore lying about it is also reshaping reality. Now that I think of it, logically, I could just tell the game universe that we already won and the plot will just solve itself by being convinced of that.
Soo: [OOC] That doesn't make sense on so many levels.
Kyle: [OOC] The word 'logically' is just sort of stuck in that post like a drowning child in a pool of insanity.
Ian: [OOC] I've got a headache.
Joe: [OOC] Want my character to tell you that you don't?
