(OOC: Colin is in Dalisse's chamber having just talked the Handler into trying to gas Larson, Adley and Nicole are in the Labyrinth trying to decide how to get to Larson and her group and take them down. Tane is in the Labyrinth near the Library trying to kill the Hagalaz trap master and Serge is at Steelhaven babysitting the mage girls. Happy gaming all. Very Happy )

It was Yu Die's turn again and the Akashic apprentice said.

"Vincent jumped off his horse with the crystal sword at the ready and the pirate was not far behind, he was intent on showing everyone who was the better swordsman, the spellcasters summoned up their magick to be ready for whoever had made that dreadful luagh, then from among the trees a old man in a dark robe came walking towards the party. "Your quest ends here heroes!" He said and luaghed again."

The spellcasters Hand's were a lit with magickal energy as Vincent jumped off his horses and held his two different colored swords aloft in a threatening manner. In the back the pirate held a schimitar in one had and was pointing a pistol at the robed man with his other hand.  

Their was an epic staredown as the old man in dark robes revealed himself and began laughing at the party.

It was Liv's turn and Jane translated.
"Jonah created a fireball and cast it towards the old man despite Princess Katie uring caution not to burn the forest down, the old man just lifted his hand and captured the fireball and sent it back towards the heroes, they just had the time to get themselves and the hores out of dodge before the ball hit the ground where they had stood, creating a impressive crater."

Using hands that were just as fast as Vincent, Jonah traced a Thurisaz and Hagalaz rune in the air. The two magickal sigils bonded together and formed a giant fireball and launched itself at the old man.

The old man seemed calm despite the massive ball of death coming towards him and simply lifted his hand. The fireball collided with the old man's hand and a few seconds later reversed direction and launched itself straight back at it's caster. The reversed fireball left a crater that seemed deeper than the page should allow.


(OOC: Awesome new thread! Now I have 19 xp. I should probably spend some soon Razz. But before that would it be possible to request a seeking Anja? I wanna see if I can get another dot in Serge's arete.)

Anja's Post:
"Young lady I am over three hundred years old, with the right magick there can be a whole lot of future for any of us and I would prefer not to have a repeat of this week, if I can avoid it."
Jeffrey said sternly.
"Stopping Larson is first priority off course, but if there is a chance to take her a live to stop her for good I will take it."

Adley's Post:
"I am still solving problems from the past just for that sort of reason, it became a problem for the future to solve. I wouldn't wish them on any future of ours, unless there wasn't a choice."

'Isn't every solution nothing more than a patch which needs to be sorted out eventually?' the large woman retorted, taking on a bit of a philosophical air which jarred with her appearance and perhaps her words and deeds to date. 'Next week, a thousand years time... soon enough, that ball of garbage is gonna come back.' ending with a shrug.

Anja's Post:
Both Violet and Cecilia seamed to be fine. Jeffrey suddenly raised an eyebrow.
"We might have an opening I am waiting for confirmation, but there is a chance that Larson is down."
He said as he glanced at the screen of his phone.

Nicole perked up a little at this news, but remained ready for action - as well as continuing to perform Overwatch over the group. The tide may have turned, but no way meant the battle was over. In fact, often this was the most dangerous time as people would start to relax too early...

[Hmm... I've been busy filling in Nick's sheet as soon as the XP comes in. Like ever, she entered play as "bare bones" build...]

[Serge] (At Rosa's apartment babysitting the mage girls at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

Using hands that were just as fast as Vincent, Jonah traced a Thurisaz and Hagalaz rune in the air. The two magickal sigils bonded together and formed a giant fireball and launched itself at the old man.

Liv smiled a little at your use of runes and nodded approvingly.

The old man seemed calm despite the massive ball of death coming towards him and simply lifted his hand. The fireball collided with the old man's hand and a few seconds later reversed direction and launched itself straight back at it's caster. The reversed fireball left a crater that seemed deeper than the page should allow.

Jane took her own turn.
"Vincent rushed the old man and tried to get a swing on him with the crystal sword as the priate laid down some cover fire, the forest shaking at the sound of his musketts. The old wizard deflexted the lead bullets but the sword managed leave a gash in his arm. The darkely robed man looked worried for a moment then with another wave of his hand he sent Vincent flying into the bush."
Rosa took over and said.
"Upon seeing that the crystal sword was effective against their foe Princess katine called out to her friends to keep the old man busy so Vincent could get at him with his sword, and she and the other spellcasters started lopping spells at the old man, each one of them where reflected but at least his attention where upon Liliwater, Katie, Dr Moonlight and Jonah, which alloved Vincent to get to his feat and the priate got the time to reload his muskett."

(OOC: Sure I can arrange for a Seeking I am making one for Tane as well as soon as the battle is done.)

and Nicole, Jeffry's strike team at the Labyrinth 2 30 in the afternoon.)

[quote]'Isn't every solution nothing more than a patch which needs to be sorted out eventually?' the large woman retorted, taking on a bit of a philosophical air which jarred with her appearance and perhaps her words and deeds to date. 'Next week, a thousand years time... soon enough, that ball of garbage [i]is]/i] gonna come back.' ending with a shrug.

"New trouble will eventually come this is true, the world we live in is no paradise but this particular problem can be dealt with for good, it many be another Nephandus will one day decide to try to finish Larson's work and we will have to stop that person as well, but that is no good reason not to try to deal with the issue for good this time and let Larson escape into death."
Jeffry said calmly.

Nicole perked up a little at this news, but remained ready for action - as well as continuing to perform Overwatch over the group. The tide may have turned, but no way meant the battle was over. In fact, often this was the most dangerous time as people would start to relax too early...

"If Larson is down it is likely her gang of fallen assholes are either going to try to flee, that they will rally around her until she recovers or try to execute the plan without her."
Fran said and frowned and she kept her eyes on the entrances to the room your group where now in clearly having the same idea as you that now might be the time for an counter attack by the enemy.

The old wizard deflexted the lead bullets but the sword managed leave a gash in his arm. The darkely robed man looked worried for a moment then with another wave of his hand he sent Vincent flying into the bush."

Serge drew the dynamic duo and their strangely effective teamwork. The old man distracted by the bullets for long enough so that Vincent was able to get in a hit.

However their victory was short lived as Vincent was thrown to the side with a wave of magickal energy. As Vincent was flying through the air he yelled "WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING TO ME!"

It seemed that getting magickally tossed aside was becoming a common theme in the story, especially for Vincent.

Rosa took over and said.
"Upon seeing that the crystal sword was effective against their foe Princess katine called out to her friends to keep the old man busy so Vincent could get at him with his sword, and she and the other spellcasters started lopping spells at the old man, each one of them where reflected but at least his attention where upon Liliwater, Katie, Dr Moonlight and Jonah, which alloved Vincent to get to his feat and the priate got the time to reload his muskett."

A barrage of multi-colored spells came from the spellcasters causing the old man's attentions to be fully drawn towards them. The old raised his hand and traced a magickal sigil into the air erecting a protective barrier in front of him that reflected all of the magickal energy back at their casters.

To the side the pirate could be seen reloading his gun and Vincent was standing back up, sharpening his crystal sword with his normal one as he was getting ready to eviscerate the old man for throwing him to the side like a ragdoll.

Yu Die took over again.
"The spellcasters continued the barrage of spells to keep the old man busy as Vincent where more or less dulling his own blades to try to look impressive as he crept up on the old mage, with a roar of battle he tossed himself on the old man's back and tried to stab him with the crystal sword. The old mage struggeled and he managed to hit Vincent in the face with an bolt of energy but eventually the swordsman managed to stab the dark robed man in the guts with his new sword."
It was Liv's turn and Jane translated for her.
"The dark wizard sank to his knees grasping his guts and shourted curses over the party of heroes. Vincent was about to give him the finishing blow but then the wizard made another sweeping gesture with his hand and he sent Vincent flying into the bush again."
At this the young girls giggeled.

Serge drew the entire scene, drawing Vincent swinging his incredibly sharpened and not dull swords at the old man, effortlessly cutting through his fragile robes and looking cool while doing so. A bolt energy was fired at the agile swordsmen which hit him square in the jaw but he managed to stand upright despite the magickal attack.

Just as Vincent was about to land the final blow, history repeated itself and with a sweeping motion Vincent was struck with an uncanny sense of deja vu as he was thrown back into the bushes again.

Just as Vincent was about to land the final blow, history repeated itself and with a sweeping motion Vincent was struck with an uncanny sense of deja vu as he was thrown back into the bushes again.

Jane took her turn and said.
"Vincent got up from the bushes now he was really pissed. The pirate took a shoot at the old man's head with his muskette but the wizard deflected the bullets, the spellcasters to tried their best to take the enemy down but no matter how hard they tried his magic was stronger, and all the spells they cast against him they got in return so by now the enetire party where rather bruised and in ill spirits."
Rosa took over.
"Vincent again tried to rush the old wizard but while he was wounded this time the enemy was ready for him and he grabbed the swordsman in a ball of air and lifted him off the ground. It was at this time that the pirate fired his muskett again and this time he hit the old wizard in the shoulder, the old man cried out in pain and he dropped Vincent who fell to the ground."

Serge drew the rest of the battle scene. Shots being fired and spells being cast, each one hopelessly deflected by the wizards spell shield.

Rosa took over.
"Vincent again tried to rush the old wizard but while he was wounded this time the enemy was ready for him and he grabbed the swordsman in a ball of air and lifted him off the ground. It was at this time that the pirate fired his muskett again and this time he hit the old wizard in the shoulder, the old man cried out in pain and he dropped Vincent who fell to the ground."

Quick as ever, Vincent suddenly appeared behind the wizard only to be thrown into a ball of air and hoisted far off the ground.

The pirate seeing his chance (for both landing a hit and bringing Vincent down a peg) fired his musket with surprising accuracy. Serge drew a close up of the bullet, which unlike previous bullet had a skull and crossbones etched into it.

The death bullet found it's mark, hitting the old man in the shoulder causing him to lose his concentration and dropping the dexterous swordsman onto the ground.

The expression Serge drew on Vincent's face made it quite clear that the charming swordsmen was getting tired of being thrown around.

Cava took her turn and she smiled and said.
"Vincent now angry rushed the old man intent to end the man's life but again a flick of the man's hand sent him flying, it seamed that even with a fancy sword thought had to be used to defeat the old wizard and not just muscle."
Yu Die took her turn and said.
"The wizard was injured but he still managed to send energy bolts and fireballs at the heroes that they bearly managed to dodge. The pirate fired again but he was less lucky this time and the bullet was deflected. "Keep fieering on him!"
Vincent said as he tried to be more sneaky this time and move around the old man to attack him once the next bullet distracted him for a moment."

"Vincent now angry rushed the old man intent to end the man's life but again a flick of the man's hand sent him flying, it seamed that even with a fancy sword thought had to be used to defeat the old wizard and not just muscle."

Another humorous scene was drawn of Vincent charging headfirst and getting thrown away with very little effort.

Yu Die took her turn and said.
"The wizard was injured but he still managed to send energy bolts and fireballs at the heroes that they bearly managed to dodge. The pirate fired again but he was less lucky this time and the bullet was deflected. "Keep fieering on him!"
Vincent said as he tried to be more sneaky this time and move around the old man to attack him once the next bullet distracted him for a moment."

Serge drew the weary band of heroes desperately trying to dodge each and every one of the attacks thrown at them. Each attack that was dodged was returned in full force, only to have it bounced back by the old man's infernal shield.

The pirate reluctantly listened to Vincent as he continued firing bullet after bullet at the old man. Vincent was now using his cat-like agility to sneak up on the old man while he was distracted by the onslaught of magick and gunpowder.

[Dalisse's Chambers, 2ish]
"It is one of our ranks, right under Prelati. The ranks being Pawn, Nephandus, Adsinistratus, Prelatus, Gileddian, Aswadim."
The old Handler explained.
Colin nodded, "Obviously, your ranking system differs somewhat from that of the Traditions, I gather. I presume it is some manner of meritocracy?"

"They will be traumatized...their Gifts having been thorn out of them."
Dalisse said and she looked down and shivered reembering her own past.
"It is such a horror and I might never forgive myself for this, but it was...necessary unfortunatly."
She said sadly a few green tears rolled down her pale face.
"I have no eyes in the armory but yes where I have eyes I can not be kept out."
She muttered and closed her eyes.
"Will the prisoners be saved before your group leaves?"
He nodded, "It's terrible, but the gas was not made to be permanent... The two will have their Avatars back, and we will be able to help them heal. Did you have the time to sense if Larson was actually taken out by the gas, or whether her scream seemed to be one of fear rather than pain?"

You got a reply back from Jeffry.
"To: Mr Wainright
From JM
Topic: Are you sure?
Are you sure Larson is down my good man? Are her men still in the armory? Very well we will recover the prisoners before we leave, whatever faction they are of they do not deserve to be left here in such a state. Please keep me apraised of where Larson's forces are located and where they move if possible.
Be Well.
JM"
He sighed and replied, 'Fairly certain; Larson screamed as the gas entered the room. Unfortunately, the Handler's link to the armoury was severed immediately after, and the ship has no suitable sensory organs in that room. I will try to get information on the disposition of the group once they move into a passageway with eyes and/or ears.'

"Isn't every solution nothing more than a patch which needs to be sorted out eventually?' the large woman retorted, taking on a bit of a philosophical air which jarred with her appearance and perhaps her words and deeds to date. 'Next week, a thousand years time... soon enough, that ball of garbage is gonna come back.' ending with a shrug.

"We'll see about that," he said.

"New trouble will eventually come this is true, the world we live in is no paradise but this particular problem can be dealt with for good, it many be another Nephandus will one day decide to try to finish Larson's work and we will have to stop that person as well, but that is no good reason not to try to deal with the issue for good this time and let Larson escape into death."

He nodded to the Chief and then looked at Fran a moment. "Let's hope that even they have the sense to forestall that last choice," he said with a frown.

Another shrug to the other's views, and a glance at the Chief. After all, if the Boss was knocked out, wasn't this the best time to press the attack?

[Serge] (At Rosa's apartment babysitting the mage girls at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

Serge drew the weary band of heroes desperately trying to dodge each and every one of the attacks thrown at them. Each attack that was dodged was returned in full force, only to have it bounced back by the old man's infernal shield.

The pirate reluctantly listened to Vincent as he continued firing bullet after bullet at the old man. Vincent was now using his cat-like agility to sneak up on the old man while he was distracted by the onslaught of magick and gunpowder.

It was Liv's turn and again Jane translated for the young Hermetic.
"With the barrage of bullets that a muskett should not be able to deliver but still did, and the onslaught of spells to send back the old man did not notice Vincent as the swordsman crept up behind him, raised his new crystal sword and planted it into his back, deep enough to pierce his black heart."
Jane took over and said.
"The dark wizard gave a final scream and then he vanished into a a mass of black smoke that slowly floated apart, the first obstacle where defeated leaving the party free to continue on their quest. The party members congratulated one another though Vincent was a little miffed that there where no loot to collect from the old man."

[Adley and Nicole] Jeffry's strike team at the Labyrinth 2 30 in the afternoon.)

"It didn't seem many were too keen on it,"

Jeffry just nodded at your words with a grim look in his eyes, he really did not want Larson to escape this in death or through any other means.

He nodded to the Chief and then looked at Fran a moment. "Let's hope that even they have the sense to forestall that last choice," he said with a frown.

"We can hope but you know these guys have to be rather fanatical or cowed to go along with Larson's crazy plan in the first place, who knows what they will do if Larson is out of the picture for a while."
Fran said and sigh.

Another shrug to the other's views, and a glance at the Chief. After all, if the Boss was knocked out, wasn't this the best time to press the attack?

Jeffry looked at Nicole for a moment his phone in hand, he was just waiting for a confirmation from Colin, when his phone pinged again he typed something back quickly and said.
"We can not let this chance pass us by, we will be moving on the Nephandi now but remember that Larson is not the only mage they have, this fight will not be easy."
The old Hermetic said and then he turned towards Cecilia.
"Can you lead the way towards the armory Miss?"
He asked and then he sent Adley a look to ask his apprentice to confirm the way the hedge wizard lead them to avoid any teachery. Cecilia nodded.
"Shit...yeah...I guess I can."
She looked rather scared, she where about to find herself in the middle of a fight behind completely defenceless herself.
"Thank you Miss in return I will do all I can to make sure that you are pardoned by the Traditions."
Jeffry pomised and Cecilia nodded and she swallowed hard.
"This way."
She muttered and started moving, being careful of traps along the way.

[Colin] (Talking with Dalisse in the Labyrinth at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

Colin nodded, "Obviously, your ranking system differs somewhat from that of the Traditions, I gather. I presume it is some manner of meritocracy?"

"To some degree, a pawn is anyone who work with us, knowingly or not, they are servants and slaves though often they have their own deals with the dark forces the Nephandi serve. Some pawns do not even know that they are working with the Nephandi at all, others might be members of other factions who do favors for us like the Italians. Nephandus is the rank of an Awakened mage who have joined us, one step up are Adsinistrati who have a commanding role, then there are the Prelati who are generals, Gilledians who lead a Labyrinth and then off course the Aswadim who are reversed Oracles. It is a meritocracy to some degree, ability will have to get further in the ranks, but so will ass kissing and being the favorite of one of your leaders, as well as back stabbing and trickery."
Dalisse explained.

He nodded, "It's terrible, but the gas was not made to be permanent... The two will have their Avatars back, and we will be able to help them heal. Did you have the time to sense if Larson was actually taken out by the gas, or whether her scream seemed to be one of fear rather than pain?"

The Handler nodded sadly.
"I know, but I never thought I would end up doing to others what was once done to me."
She said and sigh.
"It was a scream of pain, fear as well but it was a uncontrolled howl of pain."
Dalisse said softly.

He sighed and replied, 'Fairly certain; Larson screamed as the gas entered the room. Unfortunately, the Handler's link to the armoury was severed immediately after, and the ship has no suitable sensory organs in that room. I will try to get information on the disposition of the group once they move into a passageway with eyes and/or ears.'

You got a reply back from Jeffry.
"To: Mr Wainwright.
From: JM
Understood, keep me appraised, we will do what with can with the chance you and your new friend have provided for us.
Be Well
JM."

Nephandus is the rank of an Awakened mage who have joined us, one step up are Adsinistrati who have a commanding role, then there are the Prelati who are generals, Gilledians who lead a Labyrinth and then off course the Aswadim who are reversed Oracles. It is a meritocracy to some degree, ability will have to get further in the ranks, but so will ass kissing and being the favorite of one of your leaders, as well as back stabbing and trickery."
Dalisse explained.
Colin grinned wryly, "I'm sure the bloody Italians would be happy to learn that they have a formal ranking as 'pawns' among the Fallen..."

The Handler nodded sadly.
"I know, but I never thought I would end up doing to others what was once done to me."
She said and sigh.
"It was a scream of pain, fear as well but it was a uncontrolled howl of pain."
Dalisse said softly.
He nodded, "It's not quite the same, though... The one who... did unto you was deliberately trying to harm your connection to your Fount, willfully experimenting on someone with no concern as to what might happen to you later. The two poor fellows in the lab today were unfortunate collateral casualties in the deliberate attempt to temporarily disable a clear and present threat - but you know that the separation is not going to be permanent for any of the three people in question. That doesn't make it any more right... but perhaps a little less morally wrong."

You got a reply back from Jeffry.
"To: Mr Wainwright.
From: JM
Understood, keep me appraised, we will do what with can with the chance you and your new friend have provided for us.
Be Well
JM."
He sighed softly at the phone, "Right, then, now we wait for the people in the armoury to come within line of sight again... Did you notice anyone of particular power or authority in the armoury?"

[Colin] (Talking with Dalisse in the Labyrinth at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

Colin grinned wryly, "I'm sure the bloody Italians would be happy to learn that they have a formal ranking as 'pawns' among the Fallen..."

"Yes they would be overjoyed to learn their rank among us, I doubt anyone would like to say it to their face though."
Dalisse said and she smiled just a little.

He nodded, "It's not quite the same, though... The one who... did unto you was deliberately trying to harm your connection to your Fount, willfully experimenting on someone with no concern as to what might happen to you later. The two poor fellows in the lab today were unfortunate collateral casualties in the deliberate attempt to temporarily disable a clear and present threat - but you know that the separation is not going to be permanent for any of the three people in question. That doesn't make it any more right... but perhaps a little less morally wrong."

"I did not want to hurt those two prisoners...but I did and no it do not make it any better but at least the prisoners will be given care when this is all done, it will not be to long before their Faunts are returned to them, but I still feel horrible for what I did."
The Handler said softly.

He sighed softly at the phone, "Right, then, now we wait for the people in the armoury to come within line of sight again... Did you notice anyone of particular power or authority in the armoury?"

"Brandon's brother are there he have the same rank as me, but he is just what the Traditions would call and Adept so it is unlikely the others would follow him. Then there is Jamie Lebronte a Master of the Art, he is one of Prelatus Jace's apprentices, those are the ones I noticed."
Dalisse said.
"But there are quite a few pepole in the armory...wait...someone is coming out, one person, a scout then...yes it is one of the apprentices...."
The handler said and frowned.

It was Liv's turn and again Jane translated for the young Hermetic.
"With the barrage of bullets that a muskett should not be able to deliver but still did, and the onslaught of spells to send back the old man did not notice Vincent as the swordsman crept up behind him, raised his new crystal sword and planted it into his back, deep enough to pierce his black heart."

A final epic scene was drawn of the glistening crystal sword piercing the old man's heart and bursting forward through his chest. A look of satisfaction could be seen clearly on Vincent's face as he had finally gotten revenge for all the times he was magickaly thrown to the side.

Jane took over and said.
"The dark wizard gave a final scream and then he vanished into a a mass of black smoke that slowly floated apart, the first obstacle where defeated leaving the party free to continue on their quest. The party members congratulated one another though Vincent was a little miffed that there where no loot to collect from the old man."

A celebratory scene was drawn of each of the party members high-fiveing each other and Vincent looking pissed as he desperately searched the bloody mess on the ground hoping that the old man had dropped something of value before he evaporated.

"We can hope but you know these guys have to be rather fanatical or cowed to go along with Larson's crazy plan in the first place, who knows what they will do if Larson is out of the picture for a while." Fran said and sigh.

"Or blackmailed...maybe they will be glad if she's gone and run."

Jeffry looked at Nicole for a moment his phone in hand, he was just waiting for a confirmation from Colin, when his phone pinged again he typed something back quickly and said. "We can not let this chance pass us by, we will be moving on the Nephandi now but remember that Larson is not the only mage they have, this fight will not be easy."

If his pater needed assistance again to send another group message, he offered to help again. He nodded at his words. It looked like they were heading in...

The old Hermetic said and then he turned towards Cecilia. "Can you lead the way towards the armory Miss?" He asked and then he sent Adley a look to ask his apprentice to confirm the way the hedge wizard lead them to avoid any teachery. Cecilia nodded. "Shit...yeah...I guess I can." She looked rather scared, she where about to find herself in the middle of a fight behind completely defenceless herself. "Thank you Miss in return I will do all I can to make sure that you are pardoned by the Traditions."
Jeffry pomised and Cecilia nodded and she swallowed hard. "This way." She muttered and started moving, being careful of traps along the way.

Another nod to the Chief, keeping a mental track of where they were going compared to what he'd learned from June and others. He tried to provide what cover he could as they went along the living hallways.

[Serge] (At Rosa's apartment babysitting the mage girls at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

A celebratory scene was drawn of each of the party members high-fiveing each other and Vincent looking pissed as he desperately searched the bloody mess on the ground hoping that the old man had dropped something of value before he evaporated.

It was Rosa's turn and the young Cultist said.
"After a short respite to let Dr Moonlight heal their wounds the party continued deeper and deeper into the forest, eventually it got so dark due to how tall and thick the trees where that our heroes had to light torches and Dr Moonlight's horn started glowing a pale blue again."
It was Cava's turn and she said.
"The party went deeper and deeper into the woods, they had a light lunch on horseback and then continued, then right before evening when all the light that could be seen where from the torches, Dr Moonlight's horn and the glowing eyes of the robot unicorn, there was a sound in the forest, a slight swosh and then Lilywater cried out and fell to the ground bleeding, as if she had been attacked by something to fast to see."

[Adley and Nicole] Jeffry's strike team at the Labyrinth 2 30 in the afternoon.)

"Or blackmailed...maybe they will be glad if she's gone and run."

"We can hope...if someone try to run, do your best to take their lives we do not want them to get second thougts and attack us from behind but if they make it past us do not pursue them our goal is Larson and shutting her plans down."
Jeffry said firmly as he nodded.

If his pater needed assistance again to send another group message, he offered to help again. He nodded at his words. It looked like they were heading in...

"Mea filius can you send a letter to the strike team leaders for me, and tell them that if they are not presently engaged in combat to converge on our location, I want an as strong a force as possible going in, also remind them to be vary of the vampire woman, the spirits and also the rune mage which are still unnacounted for."
Your Mentor asked and handed you his phone.
"I think it will be faster if you send the letters than if I do."

Another nod to the Chief, keeping a mental track of where they were going compared to what he'd learned from June and others. He tried to provide what cover he could as they went along the living hallways.

The path seamed to be right according to what you had learned from June, then as your group walked into a long, narrow corridor with eyeballs in the roof and several sexual organs along the walls along with another liver, this Labyrinth seamed to favor livers for some reason, you saw two spirits...they where tall and thin, looking like consentration camp prisoners, they there roughly human looking but taller and elongated, their skin where gray, one of them lacked eyes and they looked like they had been burned out of his skull, the other had black eyes that focused on the party when he saw you. Both had horrible wounds all over their gray bodies and their movements where like images of pain and suffering, as if they where pain manifested and personified. Both of the spirits suddenly let out a horrid howl, it sounded like a thosand children tortured and several members of your party clutched their ears and shouted in horror.

(OOC: Strife please roll Willpower to see if Adley manage to think clearly through the pain spirit's horrid screaming, the sound really are like every cry of pain he have ever heard, from Beatrice's screams during the ritual to William's terrified whimpers when he was afraid Adley would harm his hands, a sound of pure agony. Nicole I rolled for you and scoered 1 sucseess so she keeps her head, if bearly. Nicole can see these spirits both though the glasses and otherwise as they are manifested and grumpy.)

"Yes, sir." He took the phone and typed up a message to the team members that he had sent the message to before with the details that his pater wanted included then handed it back to him.

They had to be the pair of pain spirits - and very suddenly, his hypothesis was confirmed as they screamed, the sound ripping right across his senses and bringing with it a lifetime of painful memories.

// WP: 5, 2, 1, 9, 4 - well, dang not a botch but it's looking a fail. He does have some mental protections up if Darrian's potion works, though this seems more a spiritual thing than mind magick.

"After a short respite to let Dr Moonlight heal their wounds the party continued deeper and deeper into the forest, eventually it got so dark due to how tall and thick the trees where that our heroes had to light torches and Dr Moonlight's horn started glowing a pale blue again."

Serge drew the warm glow emanating from Dr Moonlight hands that evenloped the party and healed their wounds. Gashes knitted backed together and burns slowly turned back into regular skin.

As the party ventured forth and their surroundings got darker, each of the heroes lit up their own version of a torch to help them see.

It was Cava's turn and she said.
"The party went deeper and deeper into the woods, they had a light lunch on horseback and then continued, then right before evening when all the light that could be seen where from the torches, Dr Moonlight's horn and the glowing eyes of the robot unicorn, there was a sound in the forest, a slight swosh and then Lilywater cried out and fell to the ground bleeding, as if she had been attacked by something to fast to see."

Serge drew the rapid attacker. A blurred image that seemed to be in multiple places at once to indicate his speed.

In one panel the blurred figure suddenly appeared behind Lilywater and in the next panel the figure was gone and multiple gashes suddenly appeared all over her body as she fell to the ground, defenseless against such a fast foe.

"Yes, sir." He took the phone and typed up a message to the team members that he had sent the message to before with the details that his pater wanted included then handed it back to him.

"Thank you."
Jeffry said and he put his phone back in his pocket before leading the group out of the punishment room and down the hallways.

They had to be the pair of pain spirits - and very suddenly, his hypothesis was confirmed as they screamed, the sound ripping right across his senses and bringing with it a lifetime of painful memories.

You could hear Dylan's screams as he was tortured in Abigail's Labyrinth, his sobs after the Gilledian herself was done with him for the night, you heard Claire's screams from the Caul chambers as she sacrificed herself...her Avatar to save her brother. You heard Arto scream as Enje crushed his hands, you heard Beatrice screamed as you where finally back with the documents that would save her soul. You heard your Mentor weep when your borther died, every time you or someone you loved had been in pain you heard in all, overwealming your senses as the two Umbrood's screamed, you heard the screams of those left behind during your Seeking and the soul fragments in the storm crying for you to save them, and yet you could not.

(OOC: It is more spiritual one can say he hears the things so it have a mind element but the scream is more than just a sound. It is a failiure but because the scream have a mind element as well I will let Adley act but at a minus one to all roll. And talking of rolls I am going to need a initiative roll from you. Nicole your initiative roll which I forgot in the last post ended up at 7.)

[Serge] (At Rosa's apartment babysitting the mage girls at 2 30 in the afternoon.)

Serge drew the rapid attacker. A blurred image that seemed to be in multiple places at once to indicate his speed.

In one panel the blurred figure suddenly appeared behind Lilywater and in the next panel the figure was gone and multiple gashes suddenly appeared all over her body as she fell to the ground, defenseless against such a fast foe.

It was Liv's turn and Jane translated.
"Again there where a swosh and Vincent felt a knife cut into his arm, but before he could turn to counter attack the figure where gone again. The pirate fired a lead ball into the bushes but it hit nothing but plants. "The rope...pull the rope across the road to trap the attacker!" Alexa shouted and Princess Katie brought the holy rope out from her bags, before she could do anything with it though she was shrown off her horse by the attacker."
Jane took her own turn and said.
"Princess Katie tumbeled to the ground, the foe was to fast for her but she managed to toss the rope to Dr Moonlight who held onto one end and tossed the other to the pirate and the two of them rode to the edges of the path and held the rope firmly, there was another swoosh and then the rope tugged and when the party looked a young girl with a dagger in each and and fire red hair was caught in the rope, struggeling to get free."

On the news that they were moving again, Nicole straightened up and followed, naturally keeping alert for hostiles.

On seeing the pair of Crypids, she aimed the rifle at one, but didn't open fire; didn't know if they were hostile or not. Then... the screams. With all the abilities of nails on a blackboard; to seemingly travel through and hit every nerve. Fuckers. The fact she was annoyed may have been the only thing keeping her functional; while her instinct was to simply open fire, she quickly looks around to see how many have been affected by this...

Alexa shouted and Princess Katie brought the holy rope out from her bags, before she could do anything with it though she was thrown off her horse by the attacker."

Another action packed scene as Serge depicted each of the heros attacking the agile foe and each one missing in a spectacular fashion.

He drew Princess Katie digging through her bag for the magick rope when suddenly the blurred figure appeared behind her and just like her nymph friend multiple gashes appeared all over the cat princesses body and she was thrown off her horse.

Jane took her own turn and said.
"Princess Katie tumbeled to the ground, the foe was to fast for her but she managed to toss the rope to Dr Moonlight who held onto one end and tossed the other to the pirate and the two of them rode to the edges of the path and held the rope firmly, there was another swoosh and then the rope tugged and when the party looked a young girl with a dagger in each hand and fire red hair was caught in the rope, struggeling to get free."

Serge drew the young girl getting tangled up in the rope. She tried futilely to break free of her binds to no avail. It seemed that the more she struggled the more she got tangled up.

Each of the party members gathered around their now-trapped foe, wanting to see who had nearly bested all of them on speed alone.
