Subject: Also


Guess what peoples, having survived the bonus encounters and other threats up to this point there are level's to be had.

Aelistae
Linnix,
Xaris
Artanis
you may all level your characters.

For new players:
I believe in rewarding those who stick around for the long haul, and they have deserved this level it also makes for interesting combat scenarios as not every member f a unit is equal to their partners. However, I also try not to let the level's differ between players by more than a single level, or else scaling adventures becomes difficult.

What this also means, is as my Experience is done at 'chapter endings' or after special goals are accomplished, you all may level again at the next interval, or there are certainly chances that only the lower level character's will level based on their actions and such in upcoming posts.

You'll also notice the 100CD point mark is a bonus level, this is the only way (by my design anyways) that character's might exceed that one level difference. (Of course character deaths and such could lead to level diferences, but we'll just see how it goes.

Anywho, congrats to those who have more than earned their level, and a thanks from me to everyone for making this game so muh fun to run for you all.

Subject: Stolen away, once more


Aelistae was feeling somewhat refreshed, and Linnix was in the one as far as combat was concerned. With the Auctioneer in a weakened state, both women advanced with the grim task of dispatching him evident in their steely gaze. Dagger flashed, and Court-blade arced, and both blades struck true, ending the Calimshite’s fell lifestyle in a gargled scream of blood and spit. As the large man fell, his body hitting the wood floor revealed Nash’s form, raising his arms to strike at the wounded mage. The mage defensively cast a spell, an aura of shimmering force appearing around him, hoping to stave off Nash’s blows. No such luck for the faceless creature, as four times the double bladed weapon came in vicious spins and arcs slashing his legs, his torso, and finally, with a reverse spin, the longer blade came back around and completely severed the head of the faceless mage clear from his shoulders, which lolled a bit before coming to a stop some five feet away on the floor.

Aelistae rushed over to Sheeva, checking for life, and finding it, she prayed once more for more healing. Seeing fit to grant her request, Ellistrae poured the healing power through her vassel, and Arcsheva’s eyes shot open as breath found her once more in a gasp of renewed life. (Arcsheva 5/22)

Aelistae turned to Nash, who without any actual enemies around to fight turned on Aelistae and Sheva before him. The female voice reverberated from his lips once more towards those gathered. “You dark one. Our champion has done well by you it seems.” Nashs eyes turned to Linnix and bore into her. “But you, you we will keep our eye on, you carry a familiar fire, and it pleases us.”

From somewhere beyond the black curtain came shouting and the all of the town guard. “By Tyr’s divine grace drop your weapons, we have you surrounded! You’ve got to the count of ten to come out and surrender or we’ll be coming in. Another voice quickly chimed in beside the first. “Careful captain, there is an evil aura most foul in there, the likes of which could only be… oh no… It’s the…” The voice faded to a whisper, and the Captain could be heard forming his men into ranks ready to storm the room.

Nash turned from the curtain to the women, and the female voice laughed heartily. “It would seem now would be the time to make our exit, fear not though, we will keep a watchful eye on you.” With that the black flames around Nash left him, and formed a hole in the side wall, but what lay beyond the portal was not another room or hallway, but a barren flame scorched wasteland with red skies split with black lightning and all manner of fell shadows moving in the background. As Nash moved to step through it, he turned his head, his eyes no longer filled with hellfire, but returned to those piercing emerald orbs which had captivated Aelistae from their first encounter. However, this time instead of being filled with confidence and strength, they were filled with a sense of sadness, and as his lips moved as the portal enveloped him, one could swear he was asking for help.

Subject: coming to a close I hope


The auction house grew suddenly quiet with the quelled patrons and would-be-buyers. There were still two active threats in the room, but the odds had turned to favor those held against their will significantly. Arcsheva had paid a heavy price in trying to aid the strangers around her, and was now unconscious at the feet of the faceless mage she had tried to subdue. That same enemy now turned his sights on the already wounded Nash, the closest threat to the dangerous caster.

With a quick incantation, he set forth another pair of magical bolts towards the fearsome shrouded warrior, the darts of force biting nto his shoulder, but if it harmed Nash, he did not show it, his teeth were in a constant grit, as he stalked towards the caster.

Aelistae stepped back as Linnix circled the Auctioneer for a strike. While Aelistae’s blessings from above were granted with healing energies, (Aelistae 23/30) Linnix would once more be gifted with extreme fortune as her blade flashed across the stunned Calimshite’s throat, drawing a deep gash as he stared wide-eyed as his assailant. (Another critical!) (-10) His left hand came up to his throat which was steadily bleeding between his fingers as he lunged at Linnix in anger. (under effects of ‘wounding’) The falchion whirled over Linnix’s head, a clear miss as the auctioneer was more focused on his own ebbing liquid of life.

Nash approached the caster, and gave a swipe of his sword, though the caster narrowly avoided the bloody blade. Surely this battle would be over soon.

was to indicate you placed both your dodge and mobility feats on the auctioneer for the purpose of passing. If memory serves however the auctioneer rolled an 18 / 20 on the die, more than enough to hit you, and RDI didn't give you a very warm welcome as the falchion scored max damage, thankfully the acid did not.

Subject: Not for the faint of heart.


The auction house had turned into a room not selling life, but filled with the paying in death. The walls and floor were growing steadily thicker with the blood of the fallen, and everyone had suffered greatly in their attempt of reclaiming freedom. Their bodies ached from battle, but none would give up, for to do so was to ensure enslavement eternal, or death which while debated as the better of the two options for some, was still far from anyone’s top of their to-do list.

Nash, who apparently was having some sort of identity crisis at the moment, had his lips curled into a wicked grin filled with malice and spite. Again the voice, a deep raspy, almost female in tone left his lips in a cruel laughter. “More, more must be paid to pay the cost of my vengeance” Nash moved to the terrified trio of auction-goers, and as he moved he gave a quick flick of his wrists, his gloved fingers snapping down as hidden slings fired small shuriken of gleaming silver at two of them. The tiny projectiles flew so fast the patrons had no chance to put up a defense, and while the stars prick was barely registered beyond that of a papercut, the poison attached to them which quickly ran rampant through their bodies took hold, and both fell to the floor, wracked in a convulsing pain while their eyes noses and ears bled, all the while locked in a fitful sleep even the obvious torture they were suffering from could not wake them from. The third patron dropped his feeble dagger, as Nash approached. His teeth clattered and urine stained his once fine pantaloons as he trembled on weakened knees.

“W-w-wait!” He cried, tears flowing freely from his red puffy eyes. “Spare me, Spare me p-please!, I’ve s-seen the error of my ways. I-I’ll make you a very wealthy man, gold, diamonds, Anything you want! You can even have the rest of my slaves, I’ll free them all, and they’re yours!”

Nash strode up to the man, and though had they met on more common terms they would have stood about equal height, Nash, shrouded in black flames seemed to tower before the cowering man. The voice which came from his lips, but was not of his own, spoke once more. “There is nothing you can give me that will repay the pain we have suffered. You cannot buy back the time stolen from us with gold or baubles, only by taking your life will we gain back but a portion of all that was robbed of us!” Nash shot his arm back behind him, and the magical Cross-blade pulled itself free from the woman it had impaled, in another disturbing ripping and tearing sound that left a splatter of blood across the ceiling in an arc as it flew across the room to his waiting hand. The patron finally found the strength in his legs to try and run, and that was all Nash needed, for as the man turned to flee, Nash brought the blade down in a great overhead chop, two hands on the hilt as the man looked up in open mouthed terror at the bloody blade which was coming down at him, and open mouthed he stayed as the blade sank down his mouth and gullet, skewering his throat, torso, and exiting his hind-quarters splintering the wood floor beneath him as blood, stomach contents and excrement dripped and ran along the steel as Nash looked down at the man frozen in a supplicated yell of fear… and smiled.


The women could only look on in awe, horror, or otherwise, for they were engaged in a battle of their own. Linnix and Aelistae both snapped their attention away long enough attack the Orc before Linnix. Linnix’s dagger once more bit into the creature, whose angered growl was matched with one of Linnix’s own. (-5) Aelistae however would have no luck this round, her foot stumbling over a fallen chunk of the orc’s club, her reach overextending and missing its mark, but also leaving her exposed for the auctioneer’s attack. His falchion danced a burning gash along Aelistae’s back, the sting of magical acid trailing behind it. (Aelistae8/30 )

The Orc before Linnix, now weaponless, lashed out with his bare fists, but Aelistae and Linnix both pounced on the opportunity presented to them, dagger and court-blade coming in to lash at the orc. Aelistae still could find no fortune, but Linnix’s dagger plunged into the orc’s chest, even as his dual fists moved to club her shoulders. Black blood ran from the chest wound and his strength was stolen as the small blade protruded from the creature’s chest, the tip just going far enough to pierce it’s heart. (Critical for Linnix) The orc’s eyes glazed over in a flutter that left it staring at it’s eyelids, crumpling before Linnix.

Sheva was on the move, but the Faceless mage was as well. The acid sting bit deeper into his chet, and he cursed out loud in some foreign tongue as his spell was interrupted. The woman who had appeared in a flash suddenly dashed for the cage door, where Aelistae, Linnix and the Auctioneer stood facing off. Sheva directed all her attention in motion on the Auctioneer, and as Linnix moved to retrieve her dagger, ducking her lithe frame to reclaim her favored weapon Sheva came diving past her, even as the Auctioneer took a swing at the woman who passed so close. His enchanted blade caught the woman square in the chest and as the acid splashed over her she crumpled to the ground sliding undignified in a roll and a flop, to land at the feet of the faceless mage, who, for having no lips, could have been sworn to be smiling through the pain he was in… (Arcsheva -3/22)

just meant a final interaction post before morning or what not that was fine.

As far as I'm conerned, everyone has returned safely, gotten some drink and food even though the Gryphon is now way past norma closing hours, the fire kept Bugsy and his staff occupied enough that you all managed to slip back in though techincally all rooms have been booked for the evening.

Knowing you tried to help with the fire, Bugsy will allow you to stay in Tessas quarter's free of charge, he simply wants to go to bed. Meal wil be some leftover strew from dinner (only barely luke warm and some bread and water.)Seeing as Tessa seems to have run off for the evening, a serving quarters with 3 beds in the room all of which are currently empty, is yours for the night.

Subject: She's alive ALIVE!


Katriana watched in awe and bewildered wonder as Kaene worked his mighty magics to breathe new life into Kumadel. Katriana found herself hovering over the procedure, her curiosity getting the better of her as she stared at the ritual which would grant life renewed to the stranger.

It was a slow process, but as Kumadel’s body lurched with the first breathe of a successful resurrection, Katriana found herself crying, unexpectedly her fur beneath her eyes matted with tears of joy.

Her sky blue eyes stopped upon the feline one. The one who had crossed the void with her, to face off against the pirates. "You," she said softly, almost a whisper, "you have saved my life."

Katriana’s lips curled into an instant smile, at the stranger’s recognition of her. Katriana bowed to Kumadel, still weak but alive and well. “It was the lord’s above who saw fit to save you my dear, I was but the messenger, to deliver you to their loving embrace.” Katriana slowly raised her head, before slipping Kumadel’s backpack from her shoulders and placing it before her, and also bequeathing her jewelry back to the rightful owner.

“I’m glad you’re back, but I forgot to get your spear. Guess I might have had my hands full. He offered a supplicated smile, before turning away to the rest of those gathered. Listening as Rael commented on the need for information. “Let us visit the local guild-houses and watering holes, for there we might find one who has traveled to Portluck. Perhaps we can arrange for a guide, or better still accompany a caravan or trade envoy already scheduled for that destination.”

Subject: a change of pace


Somewhere else, while flames flicker away outside, fires raged inside as well. Linnix was seeing red. Gone was the delicate woman who had danced under the candle light and in her place was a woman filled with the need to inflict pain and agony. She lashed out at the orc before her, once again the thin blade darting in and stinging the orc like the stinger of a hornet. (-4) The Orc, for the first time started breathing a little heavier. Perhaps finally the multiple small wounds were all catching up with the orc’s considerable fortitude.

Aelistae flinched back as the magically strengthened Orc flexed its increased muscles at her and hefted his club in preparation for another strike. With a quick step backwards, Aelistae fell into a spell. She pulled from the Orc’s mind memories of his cruel upbringing, the stinging pain of the lash and the flame reddened brands as he was beaten and molded into servitude. Though Aelistae couldn’t see what was going through the Orc’s mind, she knew her spell had a visible effect on the brutish creature, as he shook visibly for a moment, before losing all composure and running from the room, drawing a cursed “Fool” from the featureless mage who turned on the women once more.

Nash took a vicious blow to the side, a short sword slipping past his guard and stabbing deeply in his side. He grunted in pain, but that grunt turned into a seething scream as his entire body began to ‘burn’ in a brackish black and purple flame, much akin to the visible effects of a faerie fire spell, only much more sinister looking. Those standing around him were momentarily shocked by the transformation, as Nash’s colorless eyes flickered with an unholy hellfire. With a low, creepy chuckle in a voice that surely didn’t belong to the Nash Aelistae knew and loved, he set to work in a blur of steel in a fury that left blood and ichors spraying in a grim circle of death around him. One, two, three of his attackers fell to his vicious blade as it cut a swath across and through them, continuing its deadly path unhindered by such paltry things as armor, flesh or bone. The whip wielding woman shrieked at the horror before her, and she too ran for the door. She barely managed to lift the thick black curtain in the doorway before her back and chest exploded in a spine shattering geyser of blood. As Nash finished his cleave, he brought the sword over his head and let it fly with a feral scream. The magical double blade flew end over end with amazing accuracy considering the weight differential in the lengths of the two blades. As it blast through the woman’s back, the longer blade leading the skewer, the sheer force of the impalement, dragging her down as the crossguard lodged in her back and the blade stuck at an odd angle in the ground. The woman slumped over, her blood running down the length of the fine blade to pool at the ground, her body suspended while the magical double blade stood sturdy like a cross in the doorway, her body blocking easy escape.

“Hehehe, you have been tried, judged, and found guilty of sins beyond repent” came a voice laced with infernal undertones.

Sheva meanwhile was racing through the concentration needed to command her flaming sphere while also casting a new spell of her own, as both “No-Face and Music-Man” as she called them moved through incantations of their own. Her laming sphere moved once more against the auctioneer, but this time he managed to dodge around it and he charged Aelistae to replace the Orc which had fled.
The faceless mage’s spell was released first, another pair of magical force darts flying directly towards Aelistae, however they shot over her shoulder and slammed into Sheva (11/22 hp) The mage was staggered as the burning darts bit into her, but gritted her teeth and returned spell for spell with a searing arrow of acid, a trail of stinging green smoke streaking behind it as it impacted the mage, burning into him.

The half elf, who had realized the tables were slowly turning, thumbed a fancy button on his doublet, and pulling it free and throwing it to the ground before him, it exploded in a brief flash of light, and when the glare died down, he was nowhere to be found, hopefully gone for good.

The few remaining patrons in the room had scattered along the side walls, trying to keep away from the man who fought like a warrior possessed, while the Calimshite lunged at his charge at Aelistae whie the orc fighting Linnix swung out in a pain induced rage. Incredibly, both women were able to twist and bend around the incoming weapons, and even more amazing, the Calimshite’s mighty falchion impacted the club of the orc, almost skewering it in half, the top half of the wooden cudgel splintered and dangling by a few wooden fibres.

(3 more random patrons + no face + orc + calimshite left)
