A Deal Broken

(7:23:02 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty spots Midnight. "Oh, yeah…hey, midnight!"
(7:23:46 PM) MisterFlames: "Hello, Dusty. I was out hunting dinner. These lizards are plump and tasty."
(7:24:12 PM) Ragazzo: "They look good. Do you have a moment to help me with something?"
(7:25:26 PM) MisterFlames: "Sure, let me finish up here, and I'll be right with you." Midnight believes in using the whole animal for noms, even eating skin and some of the bones. Cricket gets enough to sate his tummy, too.
(7:25:57 PM) Ragazzo: "Thanks."
(7:25:59 PM) MisterFlames: After she grooms, cleaning herself of things, she heads over to Dusty. "What's up?"
(7:26:36 PM) Ragazzo: "Well, Jill has this tattoo, I want to remove it, but she got it from someone I suspect was a trader…"
(7:27:11 PM) Ragazzo: "Can you feel or see any magic off of it? You know my Sight isn't quite like yours."
(7:27:57 PM) MisterFlames: "I understand." Midnight prepares herself, then focuses on the problem.

(7:29:24 PM) Sabitsuki: made of snake venom
(7:30:03 PM) MisterFlames: "Interesting tattoo… why was it made from a snake's venom?"
(7:30:24 PM) Dawny: "Mal gave it to me, he's a black mamba"
(7:31:19 PM) Ragazzo: "That's why I want it gone…I don't feel like leaving black mamba venom in her skin is a good idea."
(7:32:48 PM) Ragazzo: "But…did you see any traces of magic?"
(7:32:58 PM) MisterFlames: 4df+4 (Occult Maneuver for Life Magic.) Midnight concentrates to gauge how it affects Jill's Health.

(7:33:30 PM) Sabitsuki: Doesn't affect her health at all, really
(7:34:04 PM) MisterFlames: "I don't see anything magical about it, and it's not causing her illness." Midnight's tail curls a shrug.
(7:34:16 PM) Ragazzo: "Hmm…"
(7:34:34 PM) Ragazzo: "Maybe it should just be left alone…"
(7:35:08 PM) Ragazzo: "Do you want to keep it, Jill?"
(7:35:39 PM) MisterFlames: "Probably best to just leave it alone. I'm not seeing anything bad about it."
(7:35:40 PM) Dawny: Jillian shrugs "I don't really think about it"
(7:36:23 PM) Sabitsuki: Nothing she can see, anyway
(7:36:28 PM) Sabitsuki: That is affecting her health.
(7:36:56 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty rubs his cheek.
(7:37:07 PM) Ragazzo: "Let me have a look at you, Jill…"
(7:37:29 PM) Dawny: Jillian's eyes get big "What do you mean?"

(7:38:00 PM) Ragazzo: *of
(7:38:33 PM) Sabitsuki: Her skin is a little dark under the tattoo, but other than that, there's nothing he can directly observe.
(7:39:42 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty traces the scar on his cheek slowly, sitting back.
(7:40:04 PM) Dawny: "Anything, or am I healthy?"
(7:40:20 PM) Sabitsuki: If Jill touches it, she'll realize she can't feel anything on the skin where the tattoo is.
(7:40:26 PM) MisterFlames: "You look healthy to me."
(7:41:10 PM) Dawny: Jillian shrugs "I feel fine. Like I said, I don't really even think about it…"
(7:41:41 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty rubs over the tattoo on her forearm. "I guess…we can just leave it…"
(7:42:31 PM) Dawny: Jillian blinks a few times "Hey…did you do something just then?" Jillian gives Dusty a curious look.
(7:42:48 PM) Ragazzo: "Uh…no? I was just rubbing the tattoo."
(7:44:40 PM) Dawny: Jillian pulls her arm away and brushes her fingers against it. She presses a bit harder and her breath quickens. She reaches for her pocket knife.
(7:45:14 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty raises an eyebrow, but catches her hand hand when she pulls otu the pocketknife.
(7:45:19 PM) Ragazzo: "What are you doing?"
(7:45:27 PM) Ragazzo: *out
(7:46:36 PM) Dawny: "Trying something." Jillian pulls her hand away and flicks the knife open. "I can't feel it." She presses the tip of the knife against the skin, just enough to poke.
(7:47:35 PM) Sabitsuki: Draws a single drop of blood. She doesn't feel a thing. There's a faint sound of hissing.
(7:47:43 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty watches.
(7:48:04 PM) Dawny: Jillian looks up, a bit scared. "Dusty…?"
(7:48:24 PM) MisterFlames: Midnight's ears perk, and she watches carefully.
(7:48:24 PM) Ragazzo: "That's…yeah, don't worry. I'm going to get rid of that now."
(7:48:37 PM) Ragazzo: "Midnight, can you work with me on this?"
(7:48:55 PM) MisterFlames: "I think so. Need to draw up a circle."
(7:49:19 PM) Ragazzo: "I'm going to just try and pull the venom right out of her…I'll do the circle."
(7:49:29 PM) MisterFlames: 4df+4 Occult Learnings for the Circle

(7:51:25 PM) Ragazzo: The projected circles is effortlessly, and smoothly sketched out, with dusty adding a few of his own improvements.
(7:51:30 PM) Ragazzo: "Just stay calm…"
(7:51:53 PM) Sabitsuki: Hissing gets louder
(7:52:55 PM) Ragazzo: "Midnight, sorry for not asking but…" Dusty gently scoops up midnight, and then pulls Jill over, so she's standing in a specific part of the circle.
(7:53:51 PM) Dawny: ~Girly…What's going on?~
(7:53:51 PM) MisterFlames: "Not a problem. All right, work together on this. What do you plan, Dusty?"
(7:54:07 PM) MisterFlames: ~Not sure, but the hissing worries us.~
(7:54:48 PM) Ragazzo: "I'm going to diffuse the venom inside her….if you could undo any damage with your healing magic…"
(7:55:17 PM) Dawny: ~It's in my blood stream now…I'm fucking stupid~
(7:55:24 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty lays a palm over Jill's forearm, on top of the tattoo.
(7:55:47 PM) MisterFlames: "Can do."

(8:00:04 PM) Sabitsuki: The tattoo rises up in drops from Jill's hand…and then swirl about in mid-air, forming into the shape of Mal, who coils around most of Jill's arm.
(8:00:06 PM) MisterFlames: "That's a good point…"
(8:00:16 PM) Ragazzo: "Oh, of course, it's the Trader. I should have guessed."
(8:00:32 PM) Dawny: "MAl" Jillian looks down at him "Hello"
(8:00:38 PM) Dawny: Mal*
(8:00:43 PM) Sabitsuki: "Yeah, kid. You're gonna pay for touching my property. All three of you."

(8:07:19 PM) Ragazzo: "Midnight, /shit/! Are you ok."
(8:07:24 PM) Dawny: Jillian looks between Dusty and Midnight, shaking slightly.
(8:08:33 PM) Sabitsuki: Mal's glances up at Jill for a second, and there's the air of smug amusement. "I used a small dose on the cat. She's got about an hour. The man has less."
(8:08:42 PM) Sabitsuki: "Don't fuck with the tattoo."
(8:08:58 PM) Dawny: "I won't…please…just let them live…"

(8:11:43 PM) MisterFlames: Midnight curls up, purring.
(8:11:48 PM) Ragazzo: "This hurts far too good for me to keep moving."

(8:14:49 PM) Dawny: Jillian runs to the Stryker«GEIER, ALICE!»
(8:14:49 PM) Rights: «Sup?»

(8:14:50 PM) Ragazzo: «Magic. Ohhhh, man. This hurts so /good/.»

(8:15:05 PM) Rights: Geier frowns, and starts digging through Florence. «Does anybody know if we have antiparalytics in here, or a dendrotoxin antivenin?»
(8:15:16 PM) Rights: «I don't remember if any australian snakes might be in the same toxic family.»
(8:15:23 PM) Dexanote: «Dunno what that means, but Dusty's turnin funny colours.»

(8:19:43 PM) MisterFlames: Midnight's unresponsive, just purring her little heart out.
(8:19:56 PM) Nusquam: Dusty will be finding it harder and harder to speak, or even breathe for that matter, and keep moving.
(8:20:21 PM) Rights: Geier, meanwhile, gets out the bindings. "Sorry, Kittycat…but I'll have to do you second, because quite frankly I dunno what the fuck. You got bit by a magic snake, so lets hope it's just the 'shitty near-death curse kind' instead of the 'actually kill you dead' kind."
(8:20:49 PM) Dexanote: "C'n I help?" Shank growls. There's a hint of amusement
(8:21:35 PM) E4D: There are clippers in Jason's hygiene kit. Just throwin' that out there.
(8:21:36 PM) Ragazzo: "…fuck…traders…"
(8:22:37 PM) Rights: She frowns. "Why the face. Jesus christ, I can't bind this…" She growls, then, and glances at Shank, before tossing him her bag. "There's some big ol' syringes in there. Get 'em out for me."

(8:24:03 PM) Dexanote: Then tosses em at Geier.
(8:24:30 PM) Ragazzo: "ShankIWillMeltYourFuckingChainWithMyLastBreathIfMidnightDies." Dusty gasps this out all at once.

(8:30:26 PM) Rights: Geier takes one of the syringes and slides it, gently, into her chest, grumbling under her breath as it filled with fresh, brilliant red blood. "Shank don't make him talk. It'll make things worse."

(8:32:03 PM) Rights: Geier winces and rubs her chest, peering at Dusty intensely, trying to sense how his body's reacting. Man, she hopes this at least helps a little.
(8:32:31 PM) Dawny: "I don't know his history Shank, but this is my fault…"
(8:32:51 PM) Ragazzo: "Dear…" Dusty rasps. "…that felt /great/…but…"

(8:43:47 PM) Nusquam: Tower shield and a spear carried on his back, bright crimson cloak, sandals.
(8:43:52 PM) Laito [~moc.retrahc.om.slts.pchd.4571CD79-CRInys|sirhc#moc.retrahc.om.slts.pchd.4571CD79-CRInys|sirhc] entered the room.
(8:44:02 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty hugs Midnight close all the same.
(8:44:03 PM) E4D: «Fuck, it's Too.»
(8:44:06 PM) MisterFlames: "Not… magic. Purr… helps… pain."
(8:44:09 PM) Rights: "This is ridiculously touching."
(8:44:26 PM) Dawny: Jillian raises her rifle "I'll fucking kill him myself"
(8:44:33 PM) Nusquam: The advancing figure halts.
(8:44:37 PM) Rights: «Isn't Too the snake's friend?» Geier stands, glancing around.
(8:44:38 PM) Laito: Alex laughs.
(8:44:44 PM) Rights: «Get him the fuck over here.»
(8:44:47 PM) Dexanote: Shank unwinds.
(8:44:51 PM) E4D: "Settle the fuck down, Jill."
(8:45:07 PM) Dawny: "This is *my* fault Jason"
(8:45:07 PM) E4D: «That's an 'affirm', Geier.»
(8:45:10 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens goes in circles. He's utterly useless.
(8:45:28 PM) E4D: "I don't give a goddamn, settle the fuck down and stay calm."
(8:45:55 PM) Rights: «Bluh bluh bluh people asphyxiating on their own lungs over here. We don't have time.»
(8:46:06 PM) Nusquam: He's standing about a hundred yards outside of camp.
(8:46:09 PM) Dawny: "Fine, cover me" Jillian sligns her rifle and starts to walk out to Too.
(8:46:19 PM) E4D: After a moment of deliberation, he calls back. "TOO? ADVANCE!"
(8:46:27 PM) Dexanote: Shank walks after Jill.
(8:46:34 PM) Ragazzo: ~Midnight…hey…you're a better cat than the manticore was.~
(8:46:54 PM) Nusquam: … aaand begins approaching again.
(8:47:08 PM) MisterFlames: ~Poor cricket. Can't talk to anyone else.~
(8:47:16 PM) Dawny: "TOO!" Jillian walks quickly "Can you fix this?!"
(8:47:52 PM) Ragazzo: ~He'll talk to you. Don't worry.~
(8:48:35 PM) Nusquam: He halts as Jillian approaches. "I can," comes his muffled voice with its peculiar Italian accent.
(8:48:45 PM) Dawny: "What do you want?"
(8:49:09 PM) Maddy: Alice sits quietly next to Midnight and Dusty, not particularly useful right now.
(8:49:14 PM) Laito: Alex wanders out of his tent and to Geier's side.
(8:49:14 PM) E4D: "*Bull*! *Shit*! *Jillian*!"
(8:49:33 PM) Dexanote: Shank scuttles up and around the two.
(8:49:57 PM) Nusquam: "I want to apologize for the conduct of my associate."
(8:50:28 PM) E4D: "He the one we've got to thank for this?"
(8:50:36 PM) Dawny: "How can this get fixed?"
(8:50:56 PM) Nusquam: Too nods to Jason.
(8:51:34 PM) Nusquam: He removes a pack slung across his back. "A life for a life."
(8:51:54 PM) Rights: «What's going on? What's the dude saying?»
(8:52:05 PM) Dexanote: «Shh.»
(8:52:08 PM) E4D: «Bullshit trades.»
(8:52:11 PM) Ragazzo: "What dude? Who's out there?"
(8:52:24 PM) Rights: «Man, all magical trades are bullshit. Doesn't mean they won't make you follow 'em to the letter, though.»
(8:52:31 PM) E4D: "Jillian, get back to camp. Please."
(8:52:40 PM) Ragazzo: "Trades? Another fucking trader? Tell him to die."
(8:53:03 PM) Dawny: "No, this is my fault Jason"
(8:53:53 PM) Nusquam: "You have two afflicted. I require two in exchange."
(8:54:59 PM) Dawny: "I'll do it"
(8:55:15 PM) E4D: "If you're so apologetic, then how bout you give us a freebie."
(8:55:40 PM) E4D: "Jill, I told you once to get back. Do *not* think I will hesitate in putting you back myself."
(8:55:44 PM) Nusquam: "I may have been inclined to consider such, if my reception were more cordial."
(8:56:15 PM) Dexanote: "Heh…"
(8:56:32 PM) Dawny: "Fuck off JAson, this is my mess, I'm going to clean it up." Jillian steps closer "Let me take the place of the two of them. Please"
(8:56:44 PM) Laito: "Nah, don't take her. She's damaged goods. We'll do it." Alex gestures to himself and Geier.
(8:56:48 PM) Nusquam: "You have my price. It is not open to negotiation. Speak." He momentarily reverts to Latin, [Yes or no.]
(8:56:52 PM) Rights: "…wait what."
(8:56:56 PM) MisterFlames: "No. I do not wish this trade." Midnight's voice trembles, then firms up. "Tell your companion, 'to the last, do I grapple with thee; from hell's heart do I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee.'" Midnight exhales painfully. "I will die with dignity at the least."
(8:57:03 PM) Laito: Alex grins at Elizabeth.
(8:57:12 PM) Laito: It is a confident grin, not a joker grin.
(8:57:31 PM) Tox|Laptop [~ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.E2D5BD62-CRInys|agemO#ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.E2D5BD62-CRInys|agemO] entered the room.
(8:57:34 PM) Ragazzo: "Same here. Except for the dignity part. I never had any of that."
(8:57:39 PM) Laito: It says, 'Trust me'.
(8:57:47 PM) Nusquam: He turns to face Geier. "You accept this?"
(8:57:55 PM) Rights: Geier squints at Laito, uncertainly.
(8:58:11 PM) Laito: Alex smiles warmly and takes her hand.
(8:58:31 PM) Laito: "Adventure."
(8:58:34 PM) Maddy: "G-guys…"
(8:58:37 PM) Rights: "Oh for fuck's sake, I don't even want to know what you have planned-"
(8:58:45 PM) Rights: She squeezes his hand, though.
(8:59:04 PM) Dawny: "No, I caused this"
(8:59:06 PM) Laito: Alex looks back at Red. "We've got a deal. Do your thing."
(8:59:10 PM) Ragazzo: "*No*. *No*. *No*. I don't even know you two."
(8:59:20 PM) Laito: Alex is distinctly not listening.
(8:59:42 PM) Nusquam: Dusty is probably turning blue right about now, with the whole difficulty breathing thing.
(8:59:54 PM) Ragazzo: Redact, then.
(9:00:29 PM) Nusquam: The man extends his right hand to Alex. [Deal.]
(9:00:47 PM) Laito: Alex takes it. With his other, he squeezes Elizabeth's.
(9:01:11 PM) Nusquam: He grips Alex's wrist firmly and shakes his hand.
(9:01:12 PM) Dawny left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(9:01:45 PM) Laito left the room.
(9:02:02 PM) Dawny [ten.xoc.ds.ds.A6BD9D39-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.xoc.ds.ds.A6BD9D39-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(9:02:25 PM) Rights: Geier keeps squeezing Alex's hand, and glances back. "Don't worry. Not the first time my life's been bartered off."
(9:02:33 PM) Nusquam: He opens the satchel he previously had slung across his back and removes two vials, holding them out in his open hand. They're both unmarked.
(9:03:23 PM) Nusquam: "As agreed." He looks between those standing around expectantly.
(9:03:59 PM) Rights: "Hit it. Before the normies get it together to protest."
(9:04:36 PM) Maddy: "J-just give me w-what I need to help her."
(9:04:55 PM) Dawny: "Geier" Jillian walks up to her "You don't have to do this"
(9:05:35 PM) Nusquam: He approaches Alice, offering the two unmarked vials. "By injection."
(9:05:50 PM) Maddy: "Thank you…I think." she takes them.
(9:06:23 PM) Nusquam: He nods and takes a step back.
(9:06:42 PM) Rights: "Pff." Geier shakes her head at Jillian, before pausing and picking up her bag, slinging it over her shoulder. "Seriously, I'm not kidding when I say this isn't the first time."
(9:06:48 PM) Rights: "You watch. Between Alex and me, we'll be back."
(9:06:54 PM) Maddy: 4df+5 tapping horse doctor to fix Midnight.
(9:06:54 PM) Quidmore: Maddy: tapping horse doctor to fix Midnight.: 4 (4df+5=-, 0, 0, 0)
(9:07:47 PM) Nusquam: He turns and begins walking off into the outback, gesturing for Geier and Alex to follow.
(9:07:54 PM) Maddy: "K-kens! I n-need you to take care of Dusty. M-midnight might need aftercare."
(9:08:06 PM) Rights: Geier heads after him. CUE SOME DRAMATIC MUSIC.
(9:08:17 PM) Dr_Kens: "Right." Kens rushes over with his medkit.
(9:08:46 PM) Dr_Kens: 4df+7 Tapping power arm for med boost.
(9:08:46 PM) Quidmore: Dr_Kens: Tapping power arm for med boost.: 9 (4df+7=+, 0, 0, +)
(9:08:56 PM) Dawny: Jillian walks up to Jason. "Here" She hands over her rifle, her pistol, and her pocket knife. She walks to a random place in the dirt and sits.
(9:09:41 PM) Rights left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(9:09:44 PM) E4D: Jason takes them, letting his own rifle hang. He stares at her as she walks off.
(9:10:18 PM) Nusquam: Assuming Kens was given one of the vials by Alice, he injects the /shit/ out of Dusty.
(9:10:29 PM) Dexanote: Chainshank watches them leave.
(9:10:48 PM) Dr_Kens: "You'll be fine, man." Kens smiles softly at Dusty.
(9:10:52 PM) Maddy: Alice pats Midnight and then heads to Jason. "T-two more, gone."
(9:11:47 PM) Nusquam: It will take some time for the antivenom to fully take effect, but the symptoms which had been steadily intensifying seem to have leveled off.
(9:11:52 PM) Ragazzo: "I'm going to kill every god damn trader in the world." Dusty says this literally as soon as he can.
(9:12:20 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens leans back in the sand, and stares down at the prone figure.
(9:13:16 PM) Dr_Kens: "So…what are we going to do now."
(9:13:24 PM) Dr_Kens: He digs his boots into the ground.
(9:13:58 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty just holds midnight, and focuses on breathing.
(9:13:58 PM) Maddy: "S-same thing a-as always Kens. S-survive."
(9:14:56 PM) Dr_Kens: "That's a given…but how? If only I had a lab, I could make it so you guys don't have to be so…risky."
(9:15:26 PM) Maddy: "W-what do you mean?"
