"I'm real sly about it.  I think of some method that neither you nor I
would." -- Dann

chairs." -- Merrie, after someone distracted Brand by throwing a chair at

screaming." -- GM

"I didn't pick you (as the one to attune to the Jewel), did I?" -- Lilith

"Brand stops mentally dominating you while Greyswandir is in him." -- GM
"Well, I leave it there." -- Alastair

"You want to steal the Jewel." -- Rasa
"How do you know?" -- Alastair
"Because I want to steal it." -- Rasa

"Actually, (Brand's) still dead, right?" -- Alastair to GM

"Don't you think I would have noticed that I was too tired to walk the
Pattern?" -- Alastair
"With your ego, it's hard to tell." -- GM

"Unlike Brand." -- Rasa
"This is why he's dead, and I'm not." -- Colin

"Let's just let the Chaos people in." -- Farad to Sand

"The Chaos people are flooding through the castle, killing everyone in
sight."  -- GM
"How rude." -- Alastair
"I avoid them." -- Farad

strange Chaos creature

freak?"  -- Colin to Rasa

Colin to Rasa

"Maybe..." -- Alastair
"Well, Benedict sent me to help you." -- Tain

"I raise Pattern." -- Alastair
"It's Tain." -- GM
"Oh.  Never mind." -- Alastair

"You aren't having much luck with the boltcutters." -- GM
"Did I mention that my bolt cutters are made out of adamantium?" --

"What is (Alastair) doing?" -- Farad

"Is it working any better than the bolt cutters?" -- Farad
