Topic: ~*Whom Gods Annoy*~
Subject: Cinema Bizarre

Krim Mountains, Far Northern Tar’Talon

”You’re very good at crowd control.”

It was a complement, but it had accurately described their encounter with the bandits which now lay in piles around Toby. His whip had preformed admirably, holding his enemies at bay and keeping the frail Killoren safe from harm. Toby replied light heartedly, giving the cleric a wink and Chancer a quick ribbing while he went through the belongings of the bandits. Four axes, two shortswords, some dirty clothes and 53gp, they certainly were travelling light, giving an indication that their hideout was not far away.

Chancer, his absence in the battle a source of both slights and aggravation seemed to hardly even notice, although a slight sneer did cross his face as Toby pointed out his conspicuous lack of help.

”Nature called,” he shrugged, ”…loudly.”

He headed absently over to where the bandits had emerged from over the bluff and looked out across the mountains. For a moment he stood still, and a sort of pensive look washed across his face. Then suddenly he grinned, and pointed to something in the distance, calling back enthusiastically.

”I think I’ve found our destination!”

Following his extended hand you can see a thin trail of smoke, black against the otherwise clear air.


The Temple of Magnagoth, Camatcha

“Nice bedtime story. But say we agree to tracking Rakdos, the vampire who did kill someone here, and say we find him, with his multitude of collected artifacts, and lets even suppose that we through his minions and guards and defenses so that we can maybe try and kill him. What the hells are we going to do then? And what does that thing even do?”

Raen’s disapproving questions were directly aimed at Kaene. It was clear that the woman would not put her heard somewhere without first checking to see if it was safe.

”I never said the work was easy Raen.” Kaene said solemnly, ”And I can guarantee that it is not. What I did say is that you seem destined to do it. The gods work in mysterious ways, and there is no denying that your timely appearance here to defend that which matters most is more than coincidence.”

Kaene paused a moment before rising to his feet, his hand once more resting on the Sphere of Truesight.
”This is the greatest gift ever given to man by Magnagoth. It is a potent scrying focus, the greatest in all the planes. There is no place you can go that it cannot find you. Therein does its value lie, and the very reason Rakdos sought to claim it. The sphere could be used to discern both the locations and defences of other artifacts and so it is to our great advantage that it remains in our possession. While Rakdos has at least 200 years of preparation more than us, we can use this to even the odds.”

“So, if I understood this whole story, Rakdos needs this thing here along with the other major divine artifacts to break this seal, correct? Then if he’s missing one of the pieces, won’t the whole deal just not work?” said Raen. “Why don’t we just destroy the shiny thing and be done with it? If it doesn’t exist, Rakdos would be missing the piece or source of Magnagoth’s will and wouldn’t be able to break the seal, right?”

This sudden assertion by Raen seemed to shake Kaene, and for a moment his brow contracted in anger, and all those in the room were suddenly aware of a slight cracking feeling in the air. Within seconds the feeling passed and Kaene’s face had returned to its kindly expression.

”If only it was so easy my dear.” Kaene said, regardless of the fact that Raen was probably never called “dear” in her life. ”Being the very embodiment of the god, it would be impossible for mortals such as us to destroy these artifacts.” To prove his point Kaene absently swatted the orb with more force than the group had thought possible, sending it sailing into a wall and shattered instantly. The group looked stunned for a moment before their gazes returned to Kaene and the Sphere which was sitting wholly in front of him.

”They are possessed of the regenerative powers of the gods themselves, and only their divine will could prevent their reformation. However, the same barriers which bar them from his plane prevent them from ever reaching the objects, hence the dilemma we now face.”

Raen deliberated on this new information, while the usually silent Katriana gave her consent.

”If it be the will of the God’s that I take up arms against this evil most foul then so be it, I pledge claw and steel, heart and faith to the cause. If it truly be fate that we, all of us have come here on this day, then I would dare state it is fate too that this stranger has made their way here as well, that new life is destined to be breathed into them so they too can aid you in this endeavor. Please Master Kaene, gift them with new life, it is all I can ask.”

Kaene stared into the feline eyes of Katriana for a moment before nodding serenely.

”Your points are quite right, warrior of Ragnarok, and while I am loathe to return the dead from their rest, this fey creature was taken before her time.”

Kaene paused a minute and drew a pair of diamonds from a pouch at his side, his hand began emitting a gentle white light. He set his hand on Kumadel’s brow and within seconds she coughed out a breath. The killoren’s eyes opened slowly, and she lay there a moment, clearly unsure of what had just happened.

”Rest easy Kumadel,” Kaene said gently, ”The passage back to life is not an easy one, you may find yourself unfamiliar with life for a short time.”

"This story of yours is quite thrilling. The dangers of this mission were already shown to us, even before a word was spoken. Already one of our own was taken away from this beast, and we have yet to begin. If only to give revenge to the fallen ones, we must accept. We are the last line of defence for all of the good in this world, and if we do not try and stop this monster, all of our lives will be wrought with untold terrors."

Lheriel’s words rang out in the now silent room. His partner Jeskell nodded affirmatively, adding the necessity of all their efforts in pursuit of this goal. Raiel however, seemed more inclined to agree with Raen, though her honor bound her instead to the quest.

"Would that I did mistake you words, but I do not think I did or that you would lie to us about this. We few are a slender hope that the world now depends on, don't you "think?" Perhaps you called the wrong Ranger out. I was one of the lowest my order that were allowed to take up this quest. I will not forswear myself as I am duty bound to carry out this quest but I think you should have been more specific about the level of ability that is needed considering he gravity of the situation."

Kaene nodded again. ”When I had called you here I had no idea of the magnitude of this undertaking. However, just now you staved off the wrath of Rakdos in defence of this relic, I think you will find yourselves much capable. Now…”,he turned to Raen, “..will you accompany your comrades?”

Raen nodded grudgingly. ”Someone has to make up for the half-elf’s incompetence…” she muttered under her breath.

Kaene’s face little up with a smile. ”Excellent my friends, excellent. I should think by now that Rakdos has possession of at least one artifact he will be seeking the others much quicker. Obviously he knows of their powers, though by what means he has that information I cannot fathom. I myself know only a handful of them, and it seems likely that he would assault the most obvious of them quickly so as to limit our advantage. I do humbly entreat you to head north, near the base of the Krim Mountains, to the metropolis of Portluck. The great temple of Carselt lies there, and I should suspect, with Rakdos so adverse to the healing power of that church, that he would want to strike there while he has the element of surprise. Go, the time invites you.”

((OOC: Ryst and Reralae, you are about 3hr walk away from where you perceive the smoke. Main group, you have your destination, and Philo you have life. Make your way there however you may.))

Subject: Click

Arcturius's eyes snapped open in unison just as they had at the same time every day since before he could remember. There was no room in the Imperium for sloppiness, perfection and order must reign supreme. To leave the waking hour up the chance was to invite chaos. He had long since incorporated a chronometer into his person for that express purpose. His life would be ordered, as would his work.

Arcturius rose stiffly. His neural wiring firing up after its brief downtime. He felt power flow through him, and with a mechanised hiss his breathing implants released their first waking "breath" of the day, just as they had at the same time every day since they had been recieved. His silent prayer of thanks to the Omnissiah and machine spirits followed, its timing perfect as always.

Next was the inspection of his equipement and quarters. Perfection was not merely an accident, it required toil and effort. Arcturius inspected each of his guns in turn, disassembling and cleaning them with precision and grace. His attention next turned to his quarters, every object placed just so as to create perfect angles at every glance. There would be no disorganisation here. No chance for chaos to tempt him with its disorder. His room was shaped for maximum efficiency, and he could recite the placements of every item from memory. His inspection done he paused, but only for a moment. He was two seconds early, he would have to compensate for that.

A quick beep alerted Arcturius to the presence of a notice. Malfunctioning Guard Servitor, Deck 29. His task had been decided for the day. He would need to fix whatever imperfection had resulted in this error. There was no place for error.

He travelled there directly, taking the most direct route. His robe graced the floor with his presence as he walked. Others passed him but he gave them no heed. They were not his purpose to be here. He had one order, to obey the Inquisitor Carrigan. She had requisitioned him from Mars, and his life had the express purpose of serving her. Others on the Black Ship had less dedication to him, and he knew this. During the brief periods when he allowed himself to hope he privately wished they could understand the glory of perfection, but they were fleshy, and unworthy of the gifts he had been granted...the gifts he would improve upon.

He arrived on Deck 29 without fanfare, and made his way to the malfunctioning servitor.

"1110110001100101100110011001100101010101" he said, devoid of emotion, his voice twisted and squeeking as it made his way through his implants. The servitor was defective, a rewiring issue affecting its system. Imperfection. For such a thing to happen was common, for such a thing to occur three times at once as it had in this servitor was a possibility to small to even consider.

His electrograft hummed to life, and he set about to the repairs. His skill was formidable, and he quickly fixed two of three errors. He had just begun the third when the vox systems throughout the ship hummed to life.

“Everyone! Stay where you are and continue doing whatever you were doing! Nobody is to leave their current locations. Complete lockdown!

Piscivorus get to deck 29, NOW!"

The summons of some Piscivorous to the deck he now occupied registered within his brain, but the order to continue his work overruled his need to remove himself. He returned to his work on the servitor, and did what could be his best attempt at a smile.

In listening to the announcement he had spent those two seconds.

The crow's nest had been much better...

Ja'ara frowned as he and the one called Jon made their way below deck. While he had trained at the monastery he had been forced to wash dishes before, and it was not a pleasant task, especially when one was confined to the gloomy darkness of belowdecks. Still, Ja'ara had been given orders, and if anything, he would follow them.

When they arrived, Ja'ara was surprised to see two others already there. One bearing hte characteristics of a dwarf and the other perhaps the tallest halfling he had ever seen. Jon made no delay in introducing himself and seemed to get into a stumbly conversation with the kender. The dwarven dishwasher added his voice to the mix shortly, a catchy song which quite accurately summed up the situation.

They seemed to have quite some work before them, and humming quietly to himself, Ja'ara started washing.

"I am Susska, Chief of Ssecurity for the Dathu Mining Guild. I am here to inquire as to whether or not any of you have any information about the destruction of that transsit ship."

Despite the fact that he had just apprehended a criminal, possibly discovered an assassination plot and possibly earned himself some sort of reward, the term "Chief of Security" (even hissed) filled him with dread. As inconspiciuosly and quietly as he could he holstered his heavy blaster, and did his best to keep a pleasant look on his face.

The arcona was still at his feet, and due to his proximity to the situation there was little chance he could feign uninvolvement. Best to continue the charade he was already in.

"Greetings Susska." the words rolled off his tongue without the slightly reservation, "Name's Rok, and I believe the one you're looking for is right here." Lysander gestured at the arcona, who had already seemed to clam up.

Hopefully dumping the arcona on the scaley would be enough, and he could walk out of here without a hassle. Acutely aware of the guards' blaster rifles, Lysander gave a curteous bow and prepared to make his way out when the guards went to the arcona.
