Skyfall will return shortly I promise Bump


Filler Post!

Smitty ship gets close enough to dro p the grappler and bring up Diyena and her soldiers in two trips. Once she was onboard she could see the look on the old mechanics face. Even Joey appeared troubled. "Whats wrong Smitty?"

Smitty looked haunted, shaken by something and merely pointed to the sky. When she turned to look her mouth fell open in utter disbelief...

The sky was burning...


Crosses - Long time no see!

Skipping what happens on the beach as you make your way the hell outta there!

By the time you make your way to wear the Syblade was pulling you to your powers fade. Leon reverts back to his regular Dhampir self. Livain loses the power of flight and returns to her normal self as well. Despite the loss of your strange powers the Skyblade continues to whirl and glow with a dim light. Livain could feel the tingling of excitement as they came in sight of a large building, it's once great windows were mostly shattered and on its very steps stood several undead that milled about aimlessly.

You both easily identify it as one of the greatest museums in the known world, a place that housed artifacts from nearly all the Era's of the Old World that you could recall. It was here that the Skyblade was pulling you. Why though was the mystery...


Cassian & Ael

As Ael makes her heartbreaking decision she feels the power once again tries to wrench itself free of her grasp. As she struggles with a cruel laugh echoes from all around and just as you btoh try to get your bearings you hear the dying Scavenger gasp.

You both turn and stare in disbelief as something made out of shadow stuff starts to emerge from the dying man's shadow. The laughter seemed to be coming from it and in a matter of a few seconds it takes the form of Aelessaer! Although, this one appeared older with silver streaks in her hair and much crueler smile on her lips.

"you failed to spoil my fun little one. You see your just too weak...!" She grips Scavenger shoulder, eliciting a gasps from him as his skin starts to visibly tighten, shriveling as he grew older rapidly. "... to take what is yours! Why waste your own time when you can just kill them and take their's. Take their very soul!"

Whatever she was doing to him was happening rapidly, it didn't seem apparent that it could be stopped either as she stared down her nose at you both. Her cruel smile mirrored by her laughter as she mocked you. "Cassian, ready to die again?"


Mir

The released females nod at your words, the one that had been crying is pulled to her feet as the first speaker. Apparently the most vocal or confident of the three, speaks to you.

"First we should exchange greetings Wanderer. I Am Ginla Faireyes, this emotional one is Shu'li the Flame and the quiet one is Gin The Caller." She gestures to those who remain in the stasis tubes. "I do not know who else succumbed, it may not be safe to release more of us... But tells us your name Wanderer and what you need us to do."


Tyrn

The first battle was won...

You had taken them by surprise, the battle had been fierce but you crushed the masters forces completely in this wing of the temple. Despite them gaining reinforcements midway through the battle they were too weak to take your force of exotic women and your machine priest companion. They failed to stop the juggernaut that was coming for the Master...

At the head of a force counting fifty or more strong you stood on what was once a station for overlooking work being performed by other technician's possibly. It was at the top of what appeared to be a network of assemblylines and stations for putting together some of the elven machinery this temple once produced. However this room became a testament to what you and your force of the chosen intended to do. All around you the bodies of strange quill throwing creatures, over muscled machine men, mutated hounds and the undead lay scattered where they fell.

Standing beside you was the quiet Machine priest, his face a symbol to what elven kind had achieved.

Aucturn was leaning over a rail nearby, wiggling her rear seductively while simultaneously appearing quite bored. However she had inflicted the most severe damage to the machine men, darting out of shadows and disabling them quickly.

The Serpent Twins were at your back, they had both unleashed their abilities on the enemy with savage abandon. Both proving that magic and brute force were sometimes equal in power.

Your forces were mopping up what remained of the enemies you faced, if it moved it was smashed into submission. The Chosen weren't taking any chances. It was Do or Die now...

And Tyrn was at the head of this exotic army, a story no one could or would believe back home...

The machine priest spoke, cutting off your thoughts, his voice a dull tone. "It will get tougher from here, we got the drop on them but many halls yet stand between us and the Master." He puts his foot against the body of one particular mutated elf hound thing. "The Master must die."

I reach out blindly and seize a brown bottle of medical ointment nearby, then I throw it at the apparition, "What are you?"


Ael

When you toss the bottle at the apparition she catches it, throws it aside and chuckles. "I'm the version of you thats going to kill you. Not yet though, the fun is just beginning..."

Scavenger's body begins to shrivel more, his eyes were white orbs as if he were hollow. His life was being sapped away by this dark version of Aelessaer who doesn't even show an ounce of remorse as she denies him a quiet death.

The power is growing more unstable now, as if any moment you'll lose it entirely.

"Just let it go~ Your too weak to use it anyway..." Your otherself mocks you as she runs a hand along Scavengers shriveled cheek. Where she touches his skin flakes off like dust...

Livain? :p Also how many is several?

" I am Mirianissa Death's Shadow.Well met Ginla Faireyes, well met Shu'li the Flame, well met Gin The Caller. If you do not believe the others safe to release then we need to go. These furless ones are with me, and we have other allies in this structure." she says guesturing to the soldiers waiting warily.


Whoops! Aurora... Gah. It was a late night. I was really wore out lol. Excuses Excus... Oh nevermind. :P

Livain was from LoM lol... I was reading that old thread again. :)

Crosses

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (9) + 13 = 22

From your vantage point it appears there are thirteen groups numbering two to four undead each.

So that's several...also do you want use to level up now or later?


Now is fine, however slight change to characters. Maximum HP aquired, no more rolling that. Your heroes dammit and I want to hurt you... >:D


Shadow Assassin 6 (HP AC 19, T 16, Flat 13 -F+4 R+9 W+10 Init +6/8; Senses: Darkvision 60ft Low-Light Vision (X2), Per +13

Max from now on or do you want us to retroactively apply max hit points?


Female Tabaxi Ranger 6 (Skirmisher, Natural weapon style)

So going forth or just max out per level and adjust?

Stats:

With bestial instict, Cassian's hand was at the hilt of his longsword. He unsheathed Selene with such pristine grace that the show it made of decapitating Scavenger seemed almost beautiful.

"We're all ready to die, Shadow. Are you?"


Retroactively and from now on. HP wise.

Sorry Cassian, your actions were interrupted, at least the part of decaptitating Scavenger. I messed it up but please assume that just as you were readying to draw your sword the Other Ael appeared and disrupted the flow of events.

Ael and Cassian

Scene clarification

Cassian was interrupted before he could give Scavenger an honorable death, most likely to mock the noble intent Cassian had. Scavenger is still dying althouh now the Other Ael is doing something far worse to him.

You may Retcon posts to reflect your actions since I messed it up. ;) My bad guys.

Well, that was the best I was capable of mustering up. If you have cinematics in mind then play'em up, brother! In the meantime, here's some random Knowledge checks to identify Dark Aelessaer:

K-Arcana: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24
K-Dungeoneering: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28
K-Planes: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (5) + 8 = 13
K-Religion: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20

With his renewed vigor, Tyrn led his otherworldly herum through the temple, laying waste to the abominations that invaded it.

"Then our battle has only begun. Tell me, should we bring light to this Shadow, will its ranks flounder? Though we have proven formidable, it might be wiser to cut the head from the beast than sever its limbs."

So I just realized that I haven't leveled up in a while. So just to clarify, we're level 6, max hp retroactive, heroic distinctions (vanilla), other class thing (in my case, Youxia), aaaaaand.... am I missing anything?


Shadow Assassin 6 (HP AC 19, T 16, Flat 13 -F+4 R+9 W+10 Init +6/8; Senses: Darkvision 60ft Low-Light Vision (X2), Per +13

Leon silently watches the milling mass of undead. ::So sneak around or cut straight through them?:: He signs.


Tyrn

Sounds like you have it right on the leveling up. :)

The Machine Pirest looks to you, speaking without hesitation. "Your metaphorical speech doesn't apply to this creature. Its a shade. Far harder to kill and elusive, light sources are few since the power destabilized and most of our equipment that was not destroyed initially was not designed to fight something incorporeal. I hope we do not cross its path..."


Female Human Time Thief 6 [Current HP 37 Total HP 37, Init +5, Perception +9, AC 20/15/15]

Just another selfish torturer. Well, I'm used to them...

Deciding that containing this force is more important than anything else, I look in at myself and focus on the force.

I don't know what checks could be made here to better understand this force but if it is what I/Aelessaer suspect then perhaps a little could be siphoned. I'm picturing using raw time to create an effect similar to a maze spell. I'm tempted to pull down some temple around her but imagine she would just float through it.

Does the shadow-me, having grown from Scavenger's shadow, seem linked to Scavenger's corpse in any way? Or can it move independently? Does it bear any similarity to the shadow beasts which were fought, and almost destroyed, by the space-marine-esque soldiers/explorers?


Ael

The Other Ael appears as solid as you do having caught and tossed aside the bottle you threw at her.

Since her appearance she doesn't appear to be attached to Scavenger save for the fact she has her hands on him, other then that she has two feet firmly placed in the mudof the battlefield you are standing in...

The harder you try to maintain your hold on this unknown power the more it tries to escape your grasp as if it had a mind of its own...

The creatures the Grey Riders fought were the same zombie-like creatures you and Bera faced in the beginning, some of the creatures they faced you were unfamiliar with. However when they fought the shadow they were unable to harm it with normal weapons.

Roll a D20 + Class level + Intelligence

Cassian's actions and words bring the Other Ael's mocking laugh. "Oh you will die Cassian but I plan to live much much longer."

Cassian:

Your rolls will be answered in a bit sorry not at my normal computer. :(


Mir

Hallowway and his men are gathered outside and as things calm down he comes striding back in. Rubbing the back of his neck with his free hand he leaves the other resting on his pistol in a non-threatening way. "Looks like I owe you one there, you... Ladies are one tough bunch." He clear his throat as he realizes his pause was far too noticeable. "These three appear a little nicer then she does... So what do you need me to do? Are we releasing more of them?"

I am assumiong you were talking in Tabaxian so Halloway wouldn't have understood any of it lol. :)


Female Tabaxi Ranger 6 (Skirmisher, Natural weapon style)

"They believe that the others' minds may have been to tainted to releas without danger. It pains me but we should head back to the others. There is much adjusting that needs be done and much to discuss I believe." Miri says to the soldier.


Female Human Time Thief 6 [Current HP 37 Total HP 37, Init +5, Perception +9, AC 20/15/15]

mysterious check: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (18) + 9 = 27


*Checks Mysterious page*

Looks at Ael...

::As you wish my love. silent as death and just as deadly.::

Leon closes his eyes and breathes in slowly pulling in the surrounding shadows. They envelope his body like cloth obscuring his form from prying eyes.

Stealth: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (20) + 21 = 41


Stealth: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (19) + 21 = 40
She watches as her husband cloaks himself in shadow, mesmerized by his silent grace. She too begins to cloak herself. Shadows begin to slither like serpents from all around rolling her in a shroud of black. They gently cover her until she was completely conceiled, being one with shadow.
