Don't you just hate it when a spell doesn't work the way you think it ought to...

I can rewrite if Molly's appeareance or her floppancy toward the blood on the floor are a problem... ("Floppancy?!" LOL... flippancy, I meant).

Done lots of real-world haggling, etc., but... well...

I'm Kind of at a loss as to the bargaining process in the world of RPGs, etc.. I realize that there's a kind of "traditional" way of doing things in gaming circles, but not having ever really been much of a "gamer," I'm not really sure how to go about that.

We  mainly have to sell the goblins on the idea of truly being a part of London instead of hovering around in it without putting down roots.

Dont forget one of the main "arbitors" will be the the one who owes me for killing his competitor.   When Molly takes us to the "hearing" or whatever this debate will be called, it should be in front of the goblin that kidnapped me.....  please and thank you.

It will most likely not go smoothly.  Celia is marked as a thief after all.

OK, I'll try to have the post up ASAP. Got to go and do lunch now; the folks are a bit snippy at the moment and I must do my backwards-bending act for a while...

I understand.  But also........  remember these are goblins.  You got them to bite a bad deal.   I think they will want to bargain with someone they see as an equal.   It will come down to how whomever writes that part sees it, but I believe the goblins would feel more akin to you for it........  not saying they won't try to get even, but not from anger, but from the excitement of tricking someone as crafty as they are.  
I think the only one really mad was the Morrigan.  

Does that make sense?

Remember that there is a cantankerous old wolf wondering around who has some sharp pointy persuasion tactics

Celia doesn't know she is marked yet. She thinks she got away clean because there were no alarm at the time and she hasn't felt the split until recently.

It might be a good idea if the people who invented the various goblin officials played the parts thereof, so I don't screw it up. I'll do my own, of course 9if I cna find and/or remember them, unless somebody else woould like to do it who has a better grasp of what needs to happen.

Cap'n Purcell, sorry about playing off of your oops post, I have a somewhat odd sense of humor at times. I'll erase that part if you wish and want to get rid of that post. Might be an interesting inclusion though...lol.

The other Celia is not afraid to get her hands dirty and is a hell of a lot more hard hearted. She won't try to kill James but she wont let Toby get hurt even if she is unsure about their quest now.

If the Goblins kept part of Toby's soul and took part of Celia's They have already taken more than could be a fair price for a theft.  Also it means that no true theft took place, at least not on Celia's side. 

This to be from Beety in her capacity as a Raven Singer? 

The Raven stolen
By the woman stolen
And the child stolen
For the realm that falsehood would steal.
 
The bargain broken
By the honour broken
And the souls broken
By the takers of more than was owed for the deal.

The old wolf will remain outside, if he enters he will probably kill everyone inside just for the sake of it.

I think the "Cleansing" will serve.    is there any problem with it that you guys can see?
 
Other than suddenly seeing the midden heap we are in and the real goblin's faces LOL

I think I have a good plan for what will happen.  The men in white will flee but not without taking the bit of  they bought from the goblins with them but they are only able to save the bit of Celia because the bit of Toby is in the broken sword.  It won't exactly work and the fragment they end up with is unstable.  Seeing the effects of the cleansing will drive the false Celia mad with grief because she will see her son die and not be able to do a thing to save him. the next time they build a vessel for her to inhabit she will be more like a banshee than human.  All that will be left of her is her sadness, pain and what power the tiny broken bit of soul can salvage.  What she won't know is little Toby will take back the elder part of himself when he touches the broken sword leaving him more whole and able to grow like a proper child.  The real Celia will get the city back as wholly hers and feel far stronger than before in time.

I started it.     Let me know if I need to change or delete any or all of it.    I thought it would be cool if the Wolf was immune to whatever it was doing.

But I think any evil blades should show the unbinding of magic.   (mine are not magic.  just science......)
