The Waiting Room

This room is surprisingly different from those you have seen so far. Firstly it is made mostly out of wood, floor, ceiling and walls all. Secondly it is lit by a warm cheery fire sitting in the hearth. Thirdly it contains chairs, well stools, and tables complete with food and drink. One place is noticeably different from the others, appearing to cater to an entirely different physiology.

No different from the previous rooms thin arcane circles have been etched into the wood everywhere.

Jack looked around, surprised to see the sudden change in decor. But at the very least, the warm wood and fire made him feel much more at ease. Compared to the sterile rooms he were in before, this room actually reminded him of a place he could conceivably find himself in. Grabbing a mug of warm juice, Jack snuggled up in a comfortable chair close to the fireplace.

"Hmm...I guess I just...wait then?" he asked into thin air. "Uh Geoff...can you hear me? How long do I wait here anyway?"

A deep, smooth but completely even and passionless voice seems to emanate from every point in the room at once.

"What is time to you? My next instruction referring to you has prerequisites yet to be filled. Please wait. Have a pleasant day."

Jack couldn't help but laugh when he heard the ominous voice echoe throughout the room. At this point, strange things were no longer as surprising or shocking to him. He had expected that these mysterious people knew more about him than they were willing to tell. Still, he looked down and moved his hand around. It was true - here he had so much more control over Time. Or maybe it wasn't the place? Maybe they had done something to him...?

"You sound like you know more than you are willing to say. What are those prerequisites anyway? Are you able to tell me anything while I wait?"

The pair of women phased into the room without much pomp or circumstance. After checking to make sure her attendant had arrived safely, Laura turned to the strange man who appeared to be talking to himself. With one hand resting on her rapier and the other on the butt of her pepperbox, a position that felt strangely comfortable. "Tell me, are you Geoff?"

Another woman appears, this one cuddling a cat.

"Thanks Geoff!" she calls out, before putting the cat down. It wanders over towards the fire where it sits between the blaze and the young man sitting there.

The woman looks over the three people present. "Hi. I'm 'The Witch' but you can call me Humility. The real question is who are each of you? The Thrallherd? The God? The Pirate? Or the Timelord?" And who is missing?

She looks at the chair - the one that is different from the others. "I wonder who that is for?"

She sits down, removes the end of hair from her mouth and pours a glass of wine. "Drinks anyone?"

A tiny insectoid person flanked by a large man aflame and a beautiful fluid-moving blue woman appear out of nowhere similarly to the rest.

"Hello everyone! And who might you all be? Also any of you know what in the world is going on here? One last question, anyone rather obviously missing large portions of their memory?"

Jack jumped up in his chair as more and more people just started to pop in. He recognized that they were just as confused as he was so he knew that they were not behind this. Putting down his drink, Jack smiled and tried his best to look natural. Straightening his white shirt, Jack extended a hand to the girls.

"Hi! The name's Jack," he said with a perfect smile. Even though he was obviously old enough to a man, his features still looked soft like a boy. It was surprising how lively he looked though - he had jumped out of the chair almost immediately after everyone else had been teleported in. A battle hardened veteran would have been instantly suspicious - their instincts would tell them that was no easy task to do and definitely something beyond the scope of a mere boy.

"I have no idea who Geoff is or what we're supposed to do here," he continued as he sipped his drink. "But I"m guessing we have to wait for more people by the looks of it. Humility, do you actually know who those people are? I've never heard those titles in my life. And why would you call yourself a witch anyway?" he said as he raised an eyebrow. Still he had to bite his lip. Time Lord? That couldn't be referring to him....right?

Looking at the tiny person, he shrugged. At this point, nothing surprised Jack anymore. "Memory? I mean...I no longer remember how I got here..." he said as he scratched his chin. "But how much time could really have passed? I still look about the same anyway!"

Laura watched as the others entered the room in a similar fashion to herself. Answers were sadly lacking in this place, and it was starting to annoy the woman. Taking a deep breath, she turned towards the insect-like thing. "Elizabeth and I are both missing quite a large bit as well...ten years if we figure correctly." With a sigh, she stepped closer to Humility. "And I am afraid I am unsure which of your descriptions I meet, although I will take a glass of wine for both myself and my maid...after all, we are both of age now..."

Humility pours as she observes the others.

"I have no idea who those titles belong to. I too am missing memories. I also find that, well... there have been changes. 'Geoff' was a bit helpful when asked the right questions. He would only take me here, but let slip some of the other rooms he would not take me to. There is a 'testing' room for each of us. There is also an 'armory'. That and this waiting room. Oh and a little gnome who seems to be friends with Geoff, who also has access to the "break room". I'm not sure I like the sound of that place."

She starts to chew the end of her hair again. The cat on the other hand seems content to just sit by the fire. She gestures towards the cat. "Woman, cat. Oh I know a bit about herbs too. Doesn't that make me a witch? Beats me where Geoff gets his titles from. He could have called me much worse things."

Opherous

Opherous of Lyrec

A man entered the room, armored and shielded. Looking around at those gathered, he tried to take in the surroundings as well. Next to him was a dwarf, also with armor and shield. "Great, and now who are these people?" He seems to be talking to the ceiling, as if that was where Geoff resided.

"Hello new individual, may I ask if you are missing any swaths of memory? I know at least five here seem to be."

Jack took a big gulp from his drink before setting it back down on the wooden table. Running his hand through his soft, white hair, he took a deep breath as he started going through a mental checklist of what was happening. So far, Humility had no problem identifying herself as "The Witch", even though Jack still didn't understand what that meant. Was being a woman and having a cat all it took to earn that title from Geoff? Jack had a sneaking suspicion that these 'titles' were much more informative than any of them realized.

Running through the possibilities, Jack guessed the other two girls had to be the Pirates. After all, they were dressed lightly but armed to the teeth with swords and pistols. And to be honest, Jack couldn't help but wrinkle his noise a little bit as Elizabeth stepped forward to grab one of the cups of wine. Their demeanor was a little too nice, but maybe that was because they had lot of all of their memories...

So what about me? he thought as he looked at his hands. It was true that he had suddenly learned to do so much with time...but that had always happened. Or perhaps had time flowed without he knowing? Such a thought seemed so alien, so strange, Jack couldn't even fathom how it could be possible. Either way, that leaves two possibilities for our remaining...friends, he thought as he looked over the insectoid and the heavily armored man.

"Here," he said as he sat back down in his chair. "It's obvious that none of us really expected to be here and most of us seem to have completely forgotten even what has happened," Jack stretched before he continued. "Let's have some quick introductions because I think we're going to be stuck together for some while," he said with a laugh. "My name's Jack and we all seem to have been lead here by a short, most obtrusive gnome, and a bodiless voice called Geoff. Can't believe I never got that bugger's name," he said as he jokingly knocked his fist on the table.

[Humility]

"Well, the gnome seemed alright, if a little... clinical. Geoffrey - no idea what he is? A friendly ghost? Oh there is one other room - it is called the circle maintenance room. It is another one that Geoffrey would not give me access to."

She looks up. "Geoffrey, how long have we been in this place? What is this place called, and how long have you been here?"

"Introductions sound like a good idea." Laura replied softly. It was starting to become obvious that they were all the victims of the same cruel fate. "My name is Laura, and this is my maid Elizabeth...she seems to have escaped the prodding of the gnome, who was more than obtrusive if you ask me..." As a deep blush tinted her cheeks, Laura slammed the glass of wine, her throat reflexively opening wide like a skilled drinker, much to the shock of her own maid.

OOC: Laura gains 1 grog point for drinking the wine
