Hey guys, Fire queen Luentio here...just wanted to say that crafting and cooldown will forever be not cool.

Also those smiles creep me out...idk why...which sucks btw because I need like a million of them

And why are pet eggs so hard to win? I really want the treasured phoenix...buuut I do not have the egg...freaking figures

And no, you stupid fairy...I'm not giving you my wreaths of spring

Lastly, Arabella the witch is giving me bad vibes...hmmmm

As I sit there staying out of the way, Cash comes up to me and climbs into my lap. “ We are worried about Gim. She hasn’t woken up, she doesn’t move and we don’t know what to do. Will you keep us company?”

“Yes, Cash, I will. Just give me a moment to get my stuff. Why don’t you wake Buddy and fill him in.”

“Thank you,” He gives me a kiss on the chin then gets down and gets Buddy.

I grab both bags then remember that the carpet bag doesn’t get heavy no matter what I put in it. I put my travel bag in it and pick up the carpet bag. “Okay, Cash, Buddy, lets go see to Grim.” Cash leads the way.

Grim is sound asleep with Wickerbat curled up next to her. He lifts his head and the sad look in his eyes make me want to cry. I put my stuff next to the only chair in the room and sit down. Both ferrets climb into my lap and they shake as though they are crying. Buddy sits in front of us and gives me that ‘what is going on stare’.

“Sorry, Buddy, I will cuddle with you later. These 2 need me right now.” He settles down at my feet to wait. Meantime, all I can do is let Cash and Wickerbat do what they need to and offer words of comfort. When they seem to settle down, I take out a book to read.

While I read, the room seems exceptionally quiet until Grim seems to stir. We all look over at her expecting her to wake up but it appears that she is only dreaming. I return to my book and the 3 animals get together for a quiet game of tag and chase.

I leave the Tea Room & sneak back to the Castle Gates,make myself as comfortable as I can on the stairs under the “Mini-Event “sign & wait.I shuffle over as far as I can out of the firing line of the Birdcage.There seems to be a constant flow of droppings from the bird that sits there.I notice that the feet of the knight are starting to rust so I empty a few bottles of seawater on them to help expedite the process.I never liked them anyway ..so noisy banging their axe & sword.

I must have slept for a while because the next thing I hear PTG is screaming at me.
“ROO...GET UP..we are leaving soon.You MUST stay in the Tea Room until we are ready to depart”
Oh my goodness,will I ever get any peace from this man.I turn my attention back to his rambling.
“ROO...are you listening to me?....What is so important that you are resting here when there is so much to do?”
I look up & politely say “I’m waiting for Trina to take her dog for a walk & then I’m going to take the puppies & run.I’m sure Robyn will follow” PTG gasps & tries to explain that the puppies will be at our new destination.
“NO they will not!” I shout far too loudly.
“They have only been in the game for a short time so they will not be at Delphi.
‘NO CHARACTERS ADDED SINCE ITS CREATION HAS COUNTERPARTS IN ANOTHER VERSION’
Players would never forgive us if we left them behind,so if Apollo & Shadow stay then I will not leave them.
I have enough explosives here to repel the enemy & years of inventory as backup.”

PTG is,to put it mildly gob-smacked.For a couple of minutes a heavy silence lies between us.He paces up & down & says “Ahah...I have it...The puppies were always there sooo..what we need to do is take their collars with us.This will alert Robyn & she will follow us”

PTG invites Trina for a gently stroll, as soon as they are out of sight I nip in.I can’t resist playing with them a little but I have to hurry.I settle them down on Trina’s comfy cushion.As I gently take off their collars I explain that they will get them back soon & I will take great care of them.
I can hear their mama barking & it’s getting louder.I give one last kiss to each of them,tell them we’ll see each other soon & make my escape back to the Tea Room.

PTG enters sometime later dirty,scratched & not in the best of moods to say the least.The puppies mama was outraged at the theft of the collars.As PTG was unable to extract his arm from the lead ,when she rampaged the Castle looking for them he had no choice but to be dragged along

I sit him down with a cup of tea & thank him for his valiant efforts.

ANNALIES WAS SO HAPPY,  AND WHEN ROO AND THE REST OF US AGREED THAT SHE COULD SHOW PTG JUST HOW WE FELT ABOUT HIS BROOM AND IT TREATMENT OF OUR FUR FRIENDS.  

I LAUGHED AT THE LOOK ON HIS FACE AS HE BECAME AIRBORNE.  AND THE AIRBORNE AGAIN TO BE DROPPED IN THE MOAT.  I WANTED TO GIVE ANNALIES A HIGH FIVE.  I HAVEN'T HAD THIS MUCH FUN SINCE I WAS A KID MAKING MUD TRAPS FOR UNSUSPECTING PLAYER OF HIDE AND SEEK.   YOU DID A HOLD FILL IT WITH WATER AND DIRT THEN COVER IT WITH LEAVES AND WHATEVER IS LYING AROUND.  YES WE CAUGHT SOME IN OUR TRAPS.  

I HOPE PTG THINKS MORE THAN ONCE ABOUT GETTING HIS BROOM TO GO AFTER OUR FUR FRIENDS.  

I HAVE EVERYTHING I BROUGHT WITH ME TO THE ROOMS IN MY CARPET BAG, TO BAD IT IS CAN'T HOLD MORE.  IF IT COULD I WOULD HAVE ASKED FINN AND HIS PEOPLE TO TRAVEL IN IT.  WITH LUCK THEY WILL MAKE IT TO DELPHI.   MAYBE SOME OF THE GOOD GNOMES WILL ALSO.  BUT THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO.

BECKI'S BITS AND BOBS HAVE BEEN PACKED.  SHE HAS GONE WITH THE OTHER GHOSTS.

SEBASTIEN SAID THEY WERE SETTING UP ANNA'S LIBRARY SO SHE WILL BE HAPPY.

I AM NOT OF MUCH USE BUT I CAN KEEP THE FUR FRIENDS OCCUPIED AND OUT FROM UNDERFOOT.   WE HAVE PACKED WHAT WE WILL NEED IN THE ENCLOSURE. THE PETS THERE ARE READY FOR THE MOVE.  EGOR WANT TO COME TO THE TEA ROOM BUT I DECIDED IT IS BEST HE STAY WITH BABY.  HE AGREED BUT WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT.  GEE, I WONDER CAN GHOSTS HAVE PETS?  HE AND ANNELIESE WOULD BE A GREAT PAIR.  

PTG HAS LET TO FIND ROO.  WHEN HE RETURNS HE IS SOMEWHAT WORSE FOR WEAR.   SCRATCHED, AND DIRTY.  ROO HAD COME BACK EARLIER VERY PLEASED WITH HERSELF.

I WONDER WHAT THOSE TWO HAVE BEEN UP TO.  WHATEVER IT WAS PTG LOST.

IT IS HARD TO HEAR WHAT HE IS THINKING WITH SO MANY IN THE ROOM. ALL BROADCASTING THOUGHTS,   OH, WELL.  PRECIOUS IS CLINGING TO MY NECK HE SEEM AFRAID.  SAM OH SWEET SAM SO CALM.  I FIND AN UNPACKED MUG AND GET SOME COFFEE. CAN'T FIND THE HONEY, PROBABLY ALREADY PACKED.  BLACK WILL DO. 

ASK IF I CAN HELP.  I CAN HELP JUST NOT LIFT ANYTHING HEAVY.

WE CONTINUE TO PACK THE TEA ROOM.  I CROSS TO THE BOX KATT HAD PUT BY THE DOOR.   BUT ANNALIESE IS THERE FIRST.  AND IT GOES SAILING INTO THE MOAT.  HOPE THERE WAS NOTHING IN IT ANYONE WILL MISS.

I drop into my seat at the corner tale of the Tea Room completely deflated.

After just having one of the worst few hours of my life being propelled by hidden forces through the air and dropped into the muddy waters of the  moat I return to find only laughter in my partners as they give me to understand as its owner to keep my broom in order.

I was only trying to restore a bit of order and sanity in this room with pets running around causing mayhem, but my reasons are ignored because of the methods that I used.

My broom once more takes me to my room in the hospital wing where I shower and change out of my fetid clothing. How those kids at the moat’s edge, who spend more than a month trading there, can stomach even the smell of it I will never understand?

Once more I return to the Tea Room and order my favorite brew. Unfortunately that particular tea caddy has been packed away and all that is on offer are the ubiquitous tea bags that serve up colored water.

Ah well! The liquid is hot and slakes my thirst.

Sitting there I do a head count. One of us is missing and that someone is Roo. Surely she cannot have slept through all this kerfuffle?

Where is she?

My broom quietly informs me that she is making heaps of dust bunnies as she snores in a little hollow by the Castle Gates.

Over I go to remonstrate with her about the urgency of us ALL being ready for the transfer to Delphi.

Only for her to threaten to stay behind in this Castle since Trina’s puppies can’t go with us!

But there is a trade-off and I take Trina and the mother wolf for a stroll while she creeps into her room and “borrows” the two puppies’  dog collars.

But their mother senses all is not well  She is determined to return to her pups, which would be a disaster as Roo is at this moment cuddling them. So once more I am led a merry dance through thicket and muddy paths as she tries to return to her place by Trina’s side.

I am just about exhausted when Roo emerges triumphant holding the two dog collars. I release the wolf hound back to her place with the puppies  and we return to the Tea Room

There, as if by magic a cup of hong cha is passed to me by Roo

But as I sit there I become aware of an unknown presence by my side that I cannot seem to get into focus.

Oh no! Not another dousing or some such prank.

But this time as he speaks the Room goes silent.

He informs me that something or someone has manged to get by Pirate Pete and put a hole in his boat, rendering it unseaworthy!

All eyes are on me!

It all started with a fir cone. . .

. . then escalated into a pillow fight.  And in to course of sixteen months and eighty-nine pages, the exploits of the denizens of the Special Room has been recorded in the Record Book in the Secret Library.  Here you will find pink pills, evil doctors, bardic duels, kittielephants, fashions from the House of Schpadoinkle, parallel universes, C*L*A* P*, questionable poetry, hundreds of major and minor explosions and a plethora of “cunning plans.”

I looked up from the laptop Sebastien has provided me.  It is done.

For over a week I have been transcribing the history of the Special Room from the Record Book while all around me packed their belongings.  My belongings have been packed and moved to Delphi.  Sebastien located empty rooms adjacent to the new Secret Library which has no discernible entrance.  He and the ghost players have set up a gaming area there, giving Anna back her library.  I now have my own quarters completed with a special area for cats.  There is where Sebastien moved the Mirror and Record Book for that universe, along with transcriptions from the Storybook and the Book of Evil. And it is there where Sebastien will take my laptop.

Sebastien appears and I hand him the laptop.  I then give Big Kitty one more belly rub and place her, Blackie and Chris into my carpetbag.  The other kittens and cats who have been guarding me (and who are not claimed as pets) jump into the bag as well.  It was decided that Sebastien will transport them to our new home.  Grammi G will take care of them until I arrive.tiger2cat

As for me, I will also be transported by Sebastien when the time comes.  I originally planned to join my other inmates, but then remembered a certain ferry ride I had taken to visit lighthouses in the Atlantic.   

Sebastien picks up the carpetbag and laptop looked into his mirror and disappears. He then returns.  There was one more thing we needed to do.

He unchained the Record Book from the table and we carried it outside.  Since it contained the complete history of the Special Room up to now, it had become a liability to our future safety.  He had already destroyed the Mirror in the Library to prevent unwanted passage. Now the Book needed to be destroyed as well.

We set the book down and Annaleise appeared with a bomb from the Armory.  As we ducked for cover she lit the fuse and

KABOOM! boom There was an explosion and a hole where the book once sat.  But instead of shrapnel flying through the air, there were . . .eggs? hatching_chick Hundreds of Easter eggs were flying everywhere.  And as the eggs rained down, Annaleise began to dance. dancer Sebastien and I ran back into the Tea Room before we were mobbed by players trying to complete their Castle Challenge.

FINN CAME IN FROM THE KITCHEN, THE LOOK ON HIS FACE TOLD ME THAT ALL WAS NOT WELL,   THEY HAD GONE TO MIRROR LAKE TO PETE'S BOAT ON TO FIND SOMEONE HAD MADE A HOLE IN IT.  NOW THEY WERE THERE AND NO WHERE ELSE TO GO.  I TOLD HIM TO BRING HIS PEOPLE TO THE TEA ROOM WE WOULD FIND ROOM FOR THEM IN THE ENCLOSURE OR THE CASTLE.  HE SAID THE ENCLOSURE WOULD DO AS LONG AND THE ANIMALS DID NOT THINK OF THEM AS FOOD OR PLAYTHINGS.  I OPENED MY AMULET AND CALLED TO NOSE AND NIX.  I AM SENDING SOME FRIENDS TO THE ENCLOSURE MAKE THE WELCOME.  THEN I SAID DO NOT TREAT THEM AS FOOD OR TOYS.  THEY ARE SMALL.  

I ASKED FINN IF HE HAD ANY IDEA WHERE THE GNOME BUILDERS HAD GONE.   HE SHOOK HIS HEAD.  

IT WAS WORTH A SHOT.  TO BAD BREEZE HAD SENT HE BAG TO DELPHI ALREADY.  THEY COULD HAVE GONE WITH BIG KITTY AND FRIENDS.

I WAS WISHING MY BAG WAS LIKE HERS.
