PostSubject: The Rideps Family Manor   Tue Jun 30, 2015 2:06 am

First topic message reminder :

A large mansion in the middle of (BLAH) Forest, it is rumored to have stood on this land since before the first trees grew in the area. The outside has a rustic look, with ivy climbing some of the walls in a tasteful manner. It seems it may have been put there intentionally, decades past.

The inside, while gigantic, is very well kept. It has a sprawling underground, with only the residents really knowing how many rooms there may be. The largest, however, is the library. The hall of records for all things necromancy, or related to such.  Painstakingly gathered by the family over the years, it also includes incident reports for a myriad of things.  There is no way someone could go through it all in their lifetime.  Even walking the long and short of it in a day is taxing, ignoring all of the vertical space. Near the entrance are two weapon stands, labeled "Ouroboros" and "Scheherazade". Weapons forged by the smith Kuro generations ago to help the family in their efforts to keep the undead in check, and serve the good of the nation. The halberd Ouroboros hangs on its rack, barely touched for years. Scheherazade's rack, however, is empty, as Amelia Rideps has taken it as her weapon of choice.

Despite the cleanliness, there are drastically fewer living here than there were not too long ago. Many of the servants, created over the generations, were unmade recently. There are more guests than workers now, though they help out.  Several of the bedrooms are left eerily undisturbed, as well.  And another goes unused for long stretches, and then is torn to pieces before sitting empty again.

Marie gets up and leaves the room. Silently.

Lilith looks disappointed in Yoren's life choices.

Yoren gets up and considers exiting through the window.

"You are clearly having difficulty. It is more apparent in your stature than you realize. You need rest and a nice meal. You need sleep."

"Just need a few hours to pool up some anima," Yoren defects her statement. "Subsisting on magic is easy."

"No. Sleep. Do you need me to tell you a bedtime story, for old times' sake? Sing you that lullaby you enjoyed so? I think I remember the words."

"The reason I don't sleep is because I can't. I wake up in a cold sweat from nightmares so often that it's easier just to ignore the need of sleep, drink coffee and live off of magic."

"I can knock you out if you'd prefer," Lilith says flatly. "I'll keep away the nightmares."

"I'm assuming that includes some sort of possession, so thanks but no thanks." Yoren does, however, sit back down on the bed. "Whatever happened to my sword, it also took whatever stores of power I was holding in. I can still draw, but I'll need a few hours to get it all back..."

"No possession. I was a healer, you know. Now that I know you're a vampire, I think I can identify what I was doing wrong when you were in the forest."

The door opens, finally. "Noooope. Ghost healing's not going to do much if you haven't been practicing since you died. Let me take a look." Seems like he'd gotten there shortly after Marie left and stopped to listen in. "Come on, lay down." He sets down his wooden backpack on a stool next to the bed, and starts opening drawers.

Yoren looks askance at Malphas. "Necromancer." He guesses. He does lay down, but he tries to hide that it's because the room just started spinning like mad.

Malphas strokes his chin. "You look familiar. Ever spend time at the royal libraries? Maybe I've just seen you around Freizant. Ah well, let's see that Yanshi didn't sew you up too tight and cause more damage..." He pulls out a scalpel and goes to undo the stitches from earlier.

"Any injuries you can think of apart from these obvious ones? I don't know what you were doing out there other than fighting that guy Yanshi mentioned on the ground."

He pulls some more tools out of drawers, including clamps. "Grit your teeth, got to check for internal damage. Even if you have natural healing, you'll be in a bad spot if it heals wrong."

Yoren doesn't seem to mind it. "Had worse," he comments. "Worse pain, that is."

"Good, I haven't got any painkillers on hand."

After a while, he starts stitching him back up. "Are you sure that basilisk didn't bite you? I'd think you'd actually be more healed than this by now, considering."

"Fairly. Guy who tried to kill me was using silver, though."

"Do you feel like you might be poisoned then? Silver in a vampire's blood stream's never good. I'll get some extra blood, there's plenty since Marie moved in."

"Perhaps, though if I have been it's not..." the name Malphas used registers with him. He seems to consider several different courses of action before taking a deep breath and simply asking "Who?"
