Koldar heard the dwarves bash against the door to break it but luckily it proved more sturdy than it looked like and so the door hold the first strokes when suddenly the other side of the door turned all quiet. He put his ear against the door to listen. 'Was this a trap? Were they trying to use a different way?' He heared severalvoices talking quick and loud with each other obviously argueing. Koldar was not sure but he thought that he heard the word 'demon' once or twice.
Taking it as a good sign he just shrugs at the others. "No idea what they're doing. Let's go and take this as a good sign. The rudder room must be just one stair down, I guess."

Quickly he runs down the corriodor and down a stair only to find the door to the rudder room being open and no sign of any trap anywhere. "What is this?" he muttered as he carefully neared the open door and took a careful look at the room but none was there... except Capher.

Quickly he enters and runs to the old man  seeing that his eyes are open. He seems exhausted but well.
"Can it be that you were the demon that make some trouble down here. We have seen no dwarf anywhere near this section of the ship and the ones behind us disappeared as well. I hope you're fine?"

Koldar offers a hand to Capher.

Capher looked up into Koldar's smiling, yet war battled face.  He took the offered arm, stood up a little bit shakily and replied to Koldars question. "Demons? No I do not recall seeing any demons. I came in here as a dune mouse and chewed through the rudder rope.  After that... I am not certain.  I must have blacked out for the next thing I remember is your smiling face looking down at me.  How do we fare, my friend?"

~She had successfully come upon this ship... unseen... so it was no surprise that she was able to easily make her way around... Even in the madness and crazyness of everything going on. She never flinched.. she had an uncanny, almost frightening calmness as she walked. Her hands rested above her arse... folded together neatly above her gown, long Ebony hair tumbling down the smooth fabric. When she walked, her chin remained a little high... she hid a grin... it would only be known to her... how easy it was to deal with the captain. He didnt have a clue what hit him... even as he died he wouldnt have known.~

~She went unnoticed as ussual as she came up behind Koldar slowly... She heard little of what was said between Capher and Koldar...~

blacked out for the next thing I remember is your smiling face looking down at me. How do we fare, my friend?"

~she rose a brow and coughed lightly.... looking to Koldar...~

M'lord... I beseech thee.... a word please?

~she didnt get too close... for their comfort....for her own. She wouldnt invade their personal space. She could smell Koldar, and distinguish between Capher and Koldar's scent... which was how she found, and came upon the man in the first place... But to the men, how she found them most likely would be a mistery.... Just one more to add to the book of misteries regarding Issabelle.~

Slowly Talia gets uneasy waiting for the coming of the captain in the kitchen with the cook, who looks darker with every minute passing. Two shifts of dwarves have already come in to get their soup - after the ship had listed to the right and the kettle with the precious soup nearly had fallen down -  but somehow now the next group which is due to get its meal is not coming. Something is wrong and things don‘t  work out like Talia had hoped they would. The captain didn‘t come to see her, she had really thought that he had shown interest in her - obviously not enough. And then the dwarves were not coming to eat this damn soup. And she had already made up a plan how the magi could use the indisposition of the dwarves to threaten them into doing what her group wanted to do them. So she decides to leave and gets up - slowly not to frighten the cook - and moves to the door .

"Unfortunately I have to leave your hospitality. The captain seems to be busy elsewhere. Have a nice time, and thanks for the lovely food!“

With a grin she slips out of the kitchen, not before making sure that nobody is outside. A last nod to the cook and Talia is standing on the corridor. And has no idea where to go. She doesn‘t know anything about the ship, nor what her friends had in mind doing. This shaking of the ship might be caused by them, but she has no idea, from where it originated. she loosens the knives in her sleeves and her dagger on her waist - her sword with its considerable length is no use here in the small corridors.

The silence is strange, where are the dwarves? Talia decides to go back to the cabins and have a look there. On her way she finds some dead dwarves, obviously killed by her comrades. She finds nobody in the cabins and returns to the dead dwarves hoping that they could show her the way her friends have taken. Walking along a corridor she ends at a stair leading farther down. And hates the idea of going even deeper into the belly of the ship. If she only knew that her friends are down there!

The Sorceror asks if she knows another route to the Rudder Room. Terra continuse moving aft as she responds.

"I am afraid I am not femilior to this type of ships layout."

Terra could here a groups approch from the direction they had come. Terra leads the sorceror through some sort of door, and gets a short distence down the corrador then she hears men running down the corridor the way they had come, and two out ahead of them.

"Well it seems the counter attack is coming. Take the lead, unless you are strong enough to help fight them if need be. I will go back and try to bar that door somehow."

As Terra turns to head to the door, dagger at the ready, she sees Avour and Koldar followed by a large group of Dwarves. Before Terra could reach them they had already passed though the door and closed it. Then Koldar asks what they are doing there.

Terra simply replies, "That is what we are doing.".

Then the dwarves began pounding on the door, but then hurried voices could be heared though the door, followed by silence. Terra follows Koldar as he runns to the rudder room.

They find the rudder room empty except for a slightly disoriented Capher.

Capher looked at his friends file into the rudder room.  Even the strange lady passenger had come in and was trying to get Koldar's attention.  Capher nodded his head toward her. "Koldar my friend it seems you are wanted.  I shall go say hi to the rest of our comrades while you talk with her."

He hugged Avour tightly, whispered into her ear. "How does Avour like adventure now?"  He then detached himself before she had a chance to answer him and walked up to Terra and Haj.  "Terra I would give you a hug, but I fear that would be uncomfortable to you, so instead I offer my hand."  Capher reached out his right hand.

"To you Haj, though we hardly know each other. I thank you for helping my friends."  Capher clasped Haj on the shoulder with his left hand.   He looked around.  "But I do not see Talia.  Where is Talia?  I hope she is ok?  Do we still have dwarves to consider or have they all been taken care of, at least down here below?"  Capher asked with a twinkle in his green eyes

Koldar keeps smiling happy  that capher seems alright so far. But he doesn't remember anything? Koldar was not sure if this means that Capher is alright at all or just his exhaustion. Something scared of any resistance that might have been here and Koldar was damn sure that no other shapshifter was around to do that!

"Well, we're here my friend, and as far as I can tell none beside Talia and the other woman is missing. They're currently on their own though these dwarves are certainly behaving strange at the moment. We thought we might get our hands on the captain from here."

Koldar just wanted to add something but Capher makes him aware of the newcomers and seems satisfied with the current state of things. Koldar is a bit surprised where she had appeared now, he had no clue where she or Talia has been going.

"Ok, so only Talia is missing." Koldar mutters and directed to Issabelle. "Yes? You don't -by any chance - have seen another one of our party, the blackhaired woman, have you?"

Terra sheaths her dagger, excepts Caphers out stretched hand, and something about him catches her attantion. A small thing almost all would have overlooked. She speeks to him in a low tone so only he could hear.

"I do appreciate your descresion in this manner, though not for the reasons you think... Are you sure you are alright. You seem differenent somehow,  I do not know how to describe it. You seem... Darker, as if a shadow has touched you inside. I am not sure if this makes sence to you."

Terra places her other hand on his sholder.

"If you ever wish to talk about it. I will listen."

~Issabelle watched Koldar silently before shaking her head. Her eyes wandered slightly towards Capher... he looked ill, tired if nothing more... she tilted her head slightly before pulling her eyes from Capher and replacing them with Koldar.~

Nay, I havent been... paying attention so to say... But I have seen something that would possibly interest thee...

~She stepped towards Koldar... Taking his arm and turning him with her, away from Capher and the others who could possibly hear....~

I watched the Captain of this ship die...

~she whispered lightly as she smiled.... waiting to see his reaction....~

Capher replied to Terra. "Darker? I am not sure what you mean? I am tired and dirty and wish to get off this blasted ship! As I am sure all of us do."

Capher turns to Haj.  Haj I have had enough of this place, why don't you just blast a hole through the roof, incinerate these fools and lets be gone!  Yes, incinerate, that I would like to see."  Capher almost laughed with glee at the thought.  "No! I did not mean that.  We should try and find a way to the topside.  I recall something about climbing out the porthole and up the sides.  Well this room has more than a porthole.  Look," Capher opens up a small door at the aft of the ship where the rudder ropes ran up and down, outside of the door all could see the expanse of the blue ocean,  "This is much larger than a porthole.  What do you think?  But first we must find Talia.  I pray she has not been injured or worse captured!

Koldar needed a few seconds before the words of this mysterious woman dig in. Koldar's eyebrows narrow as he considers what that actually means, he wants to ask her how she could possibly know but then scowls as he see her smile. Is that supposed some kind of gift or something?
He ponders a few moments about the situation and then a bit stressed asks.

"Fine. To the Netherworld to that bastard! But does that change what the rest of the crew wants to do to us? Esspecially since I don't suppose the captain's death was an accident?"

Koldar's is attention is drawn to the others as Capher utters a totally unusual emotional outbreak. He was the one that was against violence in the first place and now suggests such violence? The nerves of the monk must have been more stressed than Koldar thought, it certainly does not fit his personality.

"I think, we should climb outside the ship and try to get our hands on some... officers." he looks at Issa. "Don't know but when Talia is captured our best chance is to force her release rather than bash her out. Or do you suggest we swim?" he smiles driely.

~Issabelle watched Koldar a moment before chuckling....~

Nay... twas an accident im sure...I know This person had naught to do with it...

~she smiled softly... it was true.. Her Person had nothing to do with it.... another form of her may have... but this one didnt. She looked to Capher who suddenly seemed.... suddenly... out of it... a slim brown raising before again she looked to Koldar.~

Just because I saw him die... doesnt mean I caused it....

~she left it at that... she didnt want to lie... but she wasnt willing to give too much up either.~

I think.... Without the sheapard, the sheep may scatter... May... I am not sure

~she shrugged slightly as she watched him silently....~

She is going to be caught.... Did I miss something?

Smiling from ear to ear as she catches her breath. Her already huge smile gets even larger when she realises that she is actually having an adventure now. When she looks at the strange lady who smelt like Capher her smile was wiped clean off her face.

Cowering Avour skitters in behind Capher and looks over his shoulder at the lady. Taking a strong sniff of Caphers sent she points her nose towards Bella and then snifs her.

"Same smell. Like male deer and female deer. But different from Koldar-kin and Terra-kin. Yet Human-kin smell the same, capher-kin different smell. She smell like capher-kin" She whispers in Caphers ear hoping that he would hear her

Capher turned his head and out of the corner of his eye, looked at Avour.  "Who smells like me, Avour?  The lady passenger?  Are you sure?" Capher asks intrigued.

He looked closely at the lady and searched his memory. No, I have never seen this woman before.  Why would Avour say she smells like me? Very curious.

Inside of Caphers head another being was also questioning the same and wondering if the knowledge could be used to his advantage.

"We must find Talia!" Capher said after some time had elapsed.

"Who smells like me, Avour? The lady passenger? Are you sure?" Avour nods and tries to think of a way to better explain herself cussing as best she can at herself that she can't express herself.

When Capher mentions Talia, Avour realises that she's been missing Talia and her eyes lighten and she forgets about the strange lady who seems to be around them. "Talia-kin!!" Avour says worried knowing that their situation is some what dangerous, and starts to fear for Talia, her face showing her emotions better than she could ever explain
