When your avatar is in an area that allows damage to occur, a heart is shown at the top of your screen with the percentage of health. When this reaches 0%, you will be teleported to your home location. So the “death” isn’t a permanent one, you don’t lose any inventory and can return to the damage enabled region. source: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Death
A Di Jan panther is threatened with death by the Sa Vella ! idk…why did the Sa Vella pick on the sweetest panther girl on Gor….she didn’t deserve this I’m telling ya….all the bunnies and puppies had large weepy eyes …..lolz
[02:29] Nelly : Well …captive…i think you may have an idea why you are here. After the events that happened between Dijan and SaVella..i think its time to put things right.
[02:30] Cally : looks up and tries a smile…..” oh…we having a paga together ? ” she says somewhat hopefully
[02:32] Nelly smiles..”Of course not…see…you send your slaves here so they steal our supplies and insult us…who are as free as you…..we catched one of them and did what needed to be done. I attempted to notch her ear as this is what is done to thieves…dont you think?”
[02:34] Cally : sighs quietly to herself and shrugs almost imperceptibly…” but…but we are Di’Jan….we own everything…..* shakes her head * have no idea why a slave of ours would bother to steal, she should just take !…” she nods as though she believes her own utterances implicitely whilst looking round for her exit route
[02:37] Nelly : Well *nelly nodded* at least you got the right attitude….but it is as well known that you should not own what you can not defend..hu? Anyway…we should make sure that even the last of your band understands what it means to her slave to send her to our forest to do mischief. And that is by far worswr then to get her ear notched. Thats why you are here….you will serve as a shining example of revenge and regret. Yes you may feel honored.”
[02:41] Cally: shivers lightly as she is decidely not liking what she is hearing…. she tries to brave it out…….” am not sure I want to be honoured…in fact am damn sure I don’t…now I would perhaps suggest you untie me, these ropes chafe, and we sit by the fire, have a drink and you tell me your troubles…it will be best in the end !” she tries to look sympathetically at the huntress though her mind rages with anger
[02:45] Nelly laughes..”no…i would never sit down with a dijan to have a drink..and I don’t like paga at all..this bitter is not to my taste…water, milk or even a mild ale are far more delicious. Men drink paga as it makes them feel more manly drinking the worst brew under the three moons. No….as far as I heard your band came to our forest to…have revenge for one of their slaves ear bein notched…hmm..wait..it wasn’t even notched just her auricle slit…as a warning and a copper tarsk was paid for the …temporary damage. Your band came here notching the ear of one of our panther girls….as…answer. Of course..you see the spiral of escalation here..do you?”
[02:49] Cally : nods slowly listening to the huntress but not listening really her mind in a whirl as she struggles quietly with her bindings….” err you seen the green recently ? …oops ” pops out of her mouth as the thought forms before she means it to…” errm I mean to say its good to hear you are paying us to live here now I am really a very nice huntress, in fact the nicest huntress you could meet , so hows about you just let me go and we forget all this nonsense and I wont say a word…honest ! ” she smiles one of her best smiles which usually can make even the hardest Merc melt at the knees
[02:51] Cari ): cut off her ears, sis …both of them ” she grumbles in her usual ‘sweet’ way
[02:53] Nelly blinked….”It seems you don’t take me seriously……well lets start then…iam sure you will change your mind quickly. So….it will be no surpise to you that you will be the ext step on the ladder of escalation…and we SaVella usually like to reach the top of it as first. I mean…..why should we all suffer from it. Your…death will be a worthy end to this …iam sure you will be happy knowing that you are saving many panther girls lifes with your sacrifice.
[02:54] Cally : eyes go large and ears inexplicably prick up for some odd reason at the words…. cut off her ears ! …. and then does a double back flip as she registers the word death and her all in one sentence……” ermm * squeaks * you have definitely got the wrong person….I am an innocent ! ” she babbles out …
[02:58] Nelly smiles.”Of course you are innocent.” nelly said.”No one really cares if a wrongdoer dies. I mean what will they say? Something like…”she deserved it anyway..it was a result of her actions.” Thats it. But when someone dies who is not related to the issue-..well in your case you’re sharing the same tribe…then people start to think about why this had to happen.”
[03:03] Cally: eyes almost cross over as she tries to focus her small brain on the twisted logic behind the huntress’s words….she opens her mouth to speak…” err “…closes it as her brain fails to function and then tries again ” no “….she utters with a devastating logic…” not a good idea, in fact a very very bad idea…have you any idea how much i am loved….the whole of Gor….tribes ,clans, boat loads of pirates, even a few beasts * blushes * would arrive asking some very difficult questions I can tell you ! “.
[03:03] Nelly : I didn’t cut anyones ear off….the slave did steal from our supplies and was even braggint about it to me. I just slit her auricle…a little. But of course Tina has to make a big issue out of it. I should have hamstringed her.
[03:04] Nelly then turns back to her captive
[03:04] Cari : good ” she smiles and looks at Cali ” in that case we’ll make you a decent stone, so they can grieve there ” chuckles
[03:06] Cally : shivers and looks wildly round …her wrists working the ropes as hard as she can….” dont ! ” she screams furiously at them
[03:09] Nelly : Well I do believe Dijan are loved by beasts…no doubt about that. But then it makes even more sense to sink you in the river….because people will be happy that not more of you share this fate. *nelly grabbed another rope from her belt…cuts a certain length from it and starts to apply another binding wrapped around the girls elbows and upper body..”Dont be upset…we should be upset….as we were attacked for threating your slaves properly. We were even punished for doing so. As we can not allow your slaves to roam around here…we of course now will make sure that it becomes way to costy for your tribe way to continue this course. And making them loose sisters by a hungry river thalarion is a pretty good way to achieve that.”
[03:10] Cally : shivers break out even more violently now as she tries so hard to be brave…..” no please not that….I hate those things….its inhuman to do that to another woman…..how can you ” she screams……and feels like vomiting
[03:12] Emma: smiles”Tal sisters”
[03:12] Cari : Tal Emma
[03:12] Cari smiles
[03:15] Nelly smiles..”Yes it is inhuman to do that to someone..anyone actually not just women…but…iam sure you understand the necessity of proper actions to prevent even more suffering. I promise….after you died….no one of your tribe will share your fate….because they….will understand that its not a good idea to punish free over a slaves wrongdoings. I know you share my opinion..even though you may reject it for now.” nelly smiled and checked the ties…one hard pull and the loop around your body tightens….leaving less space in your lungs…”Hmm….a rock tied to your neck…and it should be good.”
[03:18] Cally : shakes her head , her eyes going like castenets from side to side as she feels herself tied tightly….” ooooff…too tight ” she manages to gasp out…..” noooo….really its not too late to recant ….huntress if I die the heavens will fall…..”
[03:18] Lita: Tal Nelly! “she snorts*
[03:21] Nelly tilted her head….”Recant…what? It was already done dear…i mean….we have to do this…*nelly marched over to the fire and searched for a proper heavy stone to apply t the girls neck. She lifted some of the brimstones and had her eyes scanning the soil…most of the useful ones were hot by the fire…and inside the camp almost no rock was left..”Maybe we should search at the pond itself.”
[03:24] Cally : shivers and considers her family, the long long list of those she loved and cared for, the little ones running around who would now be without her
[03:25] Cally : , the puppies and bay deer all so dependent upon her feeding them all who would die a terrible death, a tear came to her eye
[03:25] Cally : baby
[03:26] Cari : yes” she looked annoyed as she hates these long walks
[03:28] Cari : ooh ” smiles ” we’re going to play it that way are we , Yes, and Nelly is about to kill her, so…sit down, wait and you’ll get the body to take home ,won’t take long anymore
[03:29] Cari: the mistake was already made by your sisters …” she shrugs ” live with it , but if you don’t wanna claim the body, it’s ok, we can still dump it in the swamps
[03:30] Cari : forget it, i’m not your slave and you have no demands or commands to give here , so either change your tone, or get out
[03:31] Cari : you wouldn’ thappen to have a stone with you , by chance?
[03:32] Nelly shouts: Silence! I have to concentrate!
[03:32] Laura shouts: Have you ever expected to say silence to me and then get silence?
[03:32] Cari sighs ” shame , would have been helpful
[03:34] Nelly rolled her eyes..
[03:35] Cally : looks around in a quasi helpful manner….” err a small pebble by your foot huntress !”
[03:35] Cari laughs ” off course you are ….but see….some of your sisters will perish too, maybe even you, so yes, it’s a rather desperate and silly threat,But i will give you a chance,listen carefully….Your sister ..Tina needs to be punished for what she did…take care of that and Cali might live
[03:36] Cari: sorry ,sis ” sighs ” she didn’t bring a stone either
[03:37] Laura : I promise you this. You will perish long before I do if you wish to walk that route. Be sure of it. There has been an uneasy truce between our two tribes for a long time now. This was wanted by people on both sides. It was wanted by me. There have been some who try to break this truce and they are dealt with on our side. And here we are yet again. So I shall ask this once and only once. Do you wish this truce to end?
[03:37] Nelly : What does she want anyway…..i didn’t do anything to this one yet….i need some moments..*nelly looked around trying to find a proper stone here as well* I need something proper to attach to he neck…as she has to drown quickly…i mean it would not be good to have her yelling and screaming and all that.”
[03:38] Cari : are you deaf ?? you’re the one breaking the truce, i give you a chance now…take it or leave it ..i don’t mind, we don’t mind.;mmm..Cali might though
[03:38] Laura : you came to our land. You attacked us, you took one and now you casually talk of killing her as if it was nothing. No. I am not deaf. Are you stupid?
[03:39] Cally : nods furiously like a demented rabbit on speed
[03:39] Nelly : Truce…so you are sending slaves here to steal our supplies and insult us….without them being punished…..but as soon as we take action..we are breakign the truce….hmm..that makes only sense from a dijan way ..to see at things.
[03:39] Cari : no, but you are as we didn’t came to your lands, you came to ours, girl, now go, since you don’t wanna solve it , you can say goodbye to Cali
[03:39] Laura : Nobody sent any slaves here. She came here. We would have dealt with it as we have in the past. And now you lie to me. You say Cally came here to be taken?
[03:40] Nelly whispered to Cali..”See….someone has to die to end this first….i think now you see the reason behind my words….” *nelly smiled* “If it means anything to you…iam glad its you to solve this problem by sacrifice.”
[03:40] Cari: you heard whati said, you came here, attacking us before Cali was taken, Deal properly with your sister who caused this, or wave goodbye to your sister ,it’s your choice
[03:41] Laura: do you seriously think that killing Cally will end this? No. That will be the start of something more which will build to even more. That would not be the end. It would be a beguinning. You know better than that, Nelly.
[03:42] Cari : she’s deaf, sis,go ahead, i’ll help you find a stone, she ‘s here on false pretexts ignoring the deeds of her own band
[03:43] Nelly sighs.”Earlier today..tina came to our forests shooting…to take revenge for the punishment that was don’t to your stealing slave. There are two ways to deal with it…one is to let her continue doing so…and stand down..and the other way is to show that we do not accept slaves stealing our supplies. What would you do in our case Laura? Would you allow our kajirae to walk around in Lake Ias stealing? Cause this is what you want us to do.”
[03:43] Cally : gags….” you are glad its me…but but but ….why ? ” she asks in her most plainitive voice …..” look at me …do I look killable….furrable maybe…killable well no……I mean No…really…its just not me !”
[03:43] Laura : I should point out, of course, that Cally means little to me. But I am only one. She matters to far more. I would simply return the slave to you for you to deal with. And you know I speak the truth.
[03:44] Laura : or Talra surely does as I have done so in the past
[03:45] Cally : frowns suddenly at Laura’s words…..means little……in fact if her feet werent bound she would have stomped one of them….
[03:45] Nelly : Tina would not deal with her..she would pat her head saying she was doing well. You forget that we know her. And on gor…all free should punish any slaves for doing wrong. I was trainign her slave and she attacked to thank me for it? No…i demand somethign more then just a truce. I want to be compensated for what happened. Properly. The ear of a free of our band was notched.
[03:46] Laura: and you believe a murder is a suitable retaliation? You can dress it up as sacrifice all you wish but you iknow its a simple, straightforward murder. Have you murdered before?
[03:48] Cari: i have, and if my sister hand should fail, which i doubt, i’ll be glad to do it again, but you heard her, you have a chance, take it ,if you don’t, her death is on your hands not ours
[03:48] Nelly : No Laura..but I wasn never punished for treating a slave girl..right as well. This is an escalation…and we shurelly won’t wait for one of ours being killed first. No we go straight to the end of it. You have to ask yourself if it was worth it..for a slave girl being punished mildly about lying..stealing and insulting a free. It was not our choice.
[03:48] Laura : I will now ask you to leave us, Cari. You have no place here
[03:49] Lita cocked a brow as she heard the spoken word… but still too curious… she just stands there and listens to them
[03:49] Cari : you can ask whatever you want, but you can forget it , go order your band, but not ours is that clear ?
[03:50] Nelly : take her *nelly handed Laura the leash* any of your girls returning here….and you won’t get her back.
[03:51] Laura : I am not wrong. I tell all of ours to stay away from here and for the most part, they do just that. Occasioanlly, someone new or someone troublesome ignores what they are told and we deal with it. I deal with it.
[03:52] Cari : warn your slaves and your sisters, set one toe here and you’ll see what happens , now get off this land, we have plenty of work to do ..disinfecting the whole place will take days
[03:52] Cari : tina wasn’t new ” laughs ” spare me your pathetic excuses
[03:53] Laura : what a pahteitc little girl she turned out to be. I had hoped the years would mature her. Instead they turned her bitter
