"You lookin' at something, warm-blood?" the scarred Arcona spat.

Lysander did not want to hear that. He was kind of hoping to not be noticed. These Arcona just set off a bomb, they tried to kill Jedi. Killing a jedi was certainly much harder than killing him, Lysander knew that. Yet here he was, trapped in a corner of a cantina by some ugly and angry looking terrorists. Maybe today wasn't such a good day.

"I was uh..." Lysander fumbled for words for a moment before inspiration struck. Giving a quick look out the window at the jedi and judging the distance he made a quick decision as to how he was going to get out of this one.

"Banthas' Balls look another one!" he shouted, pointing directly behind the two Arcona (OOC: Please work bluff check) before taking a quick kick at the lead one's crotch.

Hoping his distraction would work, he made quick dive for the door, hoping that if he could just get clear of teh cantina the jedi would have to see him, or hear him...or something. Hopefully the jedi would be able to help, and maybe they'd even appreciate his newfound knowledge.

Appreciate, as in pay him for it.

Subject: Lightning


The Krim Mountains, Far Northern Tar’Talon

Where there were once seven, only one remained standing. Two of his comrades were dead, four other lay on their backs, and he stood face to face with the imposing figure that was Toby. Toby’s lash cracked out again, and his comrades that tried to rise found themselves on their backs, this time for good. Toby was effective at what he did, no one could move within with range without taking a hard lashing. The last bandit looked about, and without a moment’s pause made a run for elsewhere. He didn’t get ten feet before Iskanna’s arrow took him down.

The fight had been quick, having only lasted a minute and no sooner had the last bandit hit the ground than Chancer stepped out from behind an outcropping, a look of supreme satisfaction on his face which quickly turned to shock as he stepped out and noticed the pile of bodies surrounding Toby.

”Can’t I leave you guys alone for a minute?” he said jokingly, a half smile on his lips. ”Let’s get this mess cleaned up and get ready…looks like we’re getting close…”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Temple of Magnagoth, Camatcha

The vampire had escaped, taking the body of the necromancer with it, but for now the group, and their cargo, was safe. While some breathed a sigh of relief, Raen’s thoughts on the situation could be easily determined from her choice words. Her call of ”Fu**er! echoed oddly throughout the room, it was obvious she did not like having her opponent run off instead of fight her. Without skipping a beat, Raiel reappeared and moved toward the Ecclesiarch.

"I think we deserve some answers to our questions."

“I think we deserve a lot more than just answers,” added Raen as she motioned around the room and to the body of the priest. “But first is this place safe now? And if it is, we should get him out of here. We all may be killers, but that doesn’t mean we enjoy the presence of the dead. At least, I do not.”

The elderly priest nodded grimly. ”I had thought this place to be safe as it was, but it seems our enemies have more resources at their disposal than we thought. The man, or rather the beast, you just encountered is called Rakdos, and if he is involved I fear we’ve entered something far worse than I ever thought possible.”

He sat himself in a chair around the table and motioned for the others to do the same.

”Previously I had told you why I had called you here, the theft of a potent artifact of the Church of Gob, although what I know now is that this not a catastrophic act of chance. Before I continue, I must ask if you have heard the story of Arcanaloth, brother of Magnagoth and scourge of the gods. I fear you do not, for in truth few other than myself can recount such a tale.”

Kaene waited a moment, giving a silent census to those assembled. Their looks of puzzlement and silence told him clearly that none of the group knew anything of the story. The priest drew a quick breath, and proceeded to tell them the tale of Arcanaloth and sealing of the material plane from divine influence (OOC: See First Post For Refresher).

”Now as I told you, the seal can only be broken by the will of the deities that created it, and even in the direst of circumstances not all of them would personally grant their consent, the risk is too great. Unfortunately, their personal consent is not required. The will of the gods holds the seal in place, and the will of the gods can break it. But even the magic of the gods is flawed. Their divine will flows through all their followers, their temples and their lands, but not one of those is concentrated enough to worry us. It is their gifts to us that cause me worry. This artifact of Gob’s that has gone missing is the last remaining ”Rack of the Sadist” a tool of interrogation and torture gifted on his most devout followers personally by the Pain Bringer centuries ago. A potent symbol of Gob’s favour, it is undoubtedly infused with some bit of himself, possibly enough to act as his will in the destruction of the divine wards.”

Kaene paused a moment, but whether if was for effect or to catch his breath the group could not discern.

”While I had initially thought its theft was a horrifying coincidence, the attack on my very temple has convinced me otherwise. There is no question in my mind that Rakdos came here looking for this.” He said as he gestured to the crate. ”And I fear had you not been here, he would have succeeded.”

Kaene gestured lightly, and the crate rose into the air as if supported by unseen helpers. It hovered slowly over and set itself gently on the table. With another wave of his hand the top of the crate lifted itself off and moved across the room. The side of the crate fell harmless over, revealing the ornate and finely crafted crystal ball contained within.

”This…” Kaene pointed at the ball, ”Is only remaining ”Sphere of Truesight” in all the planes. It has remained safe with our order for six-hundred years since it was granted to us by Magnagoth, and was kept hidden for the past century. Only now, in lieu of these recent events, have we decided to use it once more.”

Kaene stood, and lightly laid his hand on the sphere.

”Rakdos is an ancient being. He has been undead for at least two centuries, possibly even more. I had thought him dead as no news of him had surfaced for some time. As one can expect, my compatriots and I make it our business to know all that occurs on this world of ours. In life, Rakdos was once an…”agent” of our temple, performing services for us of a rather delicate nature. However, he was granted access once before to the Sphere, and learned of Arcanaloth and the stories I have told you. He fell quickly from our order, dedicating himself to the cause of the exiled one, and disappeared for quite some time. It seems now that he has discovered that which I have long feared, and now seeks to restore his unholy patron to power. We cannot let this happen. YOU cannot let this happen. The fate of the world hangs in the balance, and it is no coincidence that you have come here on this day. You have been chosen to prevent Rakdos’s apocalyptic quest from bearing fruit.”

Kaene paused, and quivered slightly. He sat down slowly, a tired look on his face.

”Destiny has picked you. But the choice is yours, I await your answer friends.”

((OOC: Actually Philo, you’re still dead, will deal with you next update…so sorry. Uh…info dump. Main group answer, react, what have you. Other group, you killed the bandits and are close to the supposed camp, do what you will. Also, I very tired.))
