This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

Cultist City Assault

Casseus Rex wrote:

"Understood. So as I understand things...you've entered into a sort of bet with those powers on the opposite side of the fence as you to see who could claim this girl first. 'Sam came by and took her before she could be delivered, and threw your plans into...chaos. So, you are now using this person as a bartering tool with us to get this girl, on the condition that you will release 'Sam once we've done so. Is this correct?"

he pauses
"Just so we're clear, you don't care about the rest of the cultists here, you just want the girl?"

"I would be completely lying if I said I did not care about the cultists. They hold a place in my thoughts, and even now in their deaths by your hand, more so. The dead ones seek revenge and beg such cruel things in response to your assault, it's a delight of voices. Quite ...delightful. Back to the discussion at hand, however."

A moment passes.

"Yes. You have the gist of it. Though, we /had/ the Chosen One, before the intrusion. The cultists had fended off the efforts of the opposition for more than a decade as the Chosen One grew under their guidance from the sweet innocence of a newly born. It was so delightful, having her, yet, not allowing the cultists to do their usual perversions and acts. Oh, the rage and dances they performed, the bartering and anguish they expressed, delicious. The heinous acts they did performed elsewhere to vent their vileness. Surely you can see the position I am in now. Chaos is a good way to put it, a delight to see, yes-- but, your hand thus far, crude work, if not your original intent. I'm all a fan of death and destruction, but ... artistically done, with guile and class. The measure of one's worth isn't by the body count from a tool, but by the mind, yes? If you want to destroy and kill more, by all means, you and I can work out an arrangement if interested, Prince. Perhaps you wish to let your pet there with the snake figure rend some flesh or flay people with magic, as a gift, as well? I'm so glad I heard you just before I fully left, so very glad you were not paying heed to your pet's words or thoughts, Prince."

One can almost imagine some feral grin occurring on the owner of the voice, if it were capable of such, given the tone. He's finding some odd delight in the conversation now.

Verris nods.
He picks up Julie in a bridal carry and brings her out after him quickly.

Kaetar is nowhere to be found. However, there is a massive pile of cards that have residual psionic energy on the floor.

Phaezariel:

The cards seem to be keyed to Iolth's mind. They may carry a message for him...

Sorry about the mix-ups. I should've been hitting the sack about two hours ago when I wrote those posts.

mid-welding Romulus looks at you curiously "how do you run without being wound, or have a steam engine?" he inquires

Romulus looks at you as if you are speaking in a manner he does not understand anything that you said... returning to work on the conglomeration of medical parts, shooting you an odd glance every so often...

Phaezeriel takes note of the pile of cards, and though he wants to investigate, caring for the living is a more critical concern. I will have to come back to this as soon as Julie is stable; and I am if truth be told.

"Well, that's up to you, Jessa. We won't force you to take classes, but the option is open to you. You don't need to make a decision about that right now," she said, walking over to the door and opening it, gesturing for Jessa to follow her.

The tunnel leading out of the isolab is long and has a couple of decontamination stations they have to pass through, although they are currently shut down so it's just walking through them as opposed to going through the whole process. Eventually they reach another door.

"We'll be stepping into the infirmary so things may be a little crazy at first. It will be somewhat quieter once we get out into the hallway."

Jessa follows Nala down the long hallway not speaking. Her movements remain stiff, and seem to grow more so as they near the door to the infirmary. When Nala reaches the door, Jessa again speaks, "Can you wait just a moment before we go out? She is being difficult right now."

If Nala agrees to wait, Jessa moves a little ways back from the door and lowers herself down a wall until she is sitting on her heels and wraps her arms around her knees. For a few minutes she sits like that occasionally twitching. With any attention and skill at reading people, someone might notice that her motions seem like she is controlling the gestures a person might make if they were arguing with someone.

Finally she seems to relax a little and stands, straightening her school uniform where it was out of place, "Okay, thanks. I am as ready as I will be." She does, in fact, seem more relaxed now than at any point since she first tried to control her psychotic personality.

Mel simply nods. then says, I didn't know I left. but sure, I don't have any objection, It was fun last time.

Mel will follow Phaeze back into the room and use her sonic device for a temporal energy scan. looking for traces of Artron energy.


Female Human image

Nurse Julie open her eyes slightly, but the feeling of warmth and comfort about her, and seing with whom she is resting she quickly closes her eyes again.

she seems to feign unconciousness, enjoying the comfort being provided. a feeling she has not experienced in a very long time.

Kitty gave a reassuring pat to both Saffire and Nova. "Sorry, but he's right. You have to learn to get along. You'll just have to wait for your breakfast."

"Okay, let's go see about breakfast...and apologies to your parents."

Kitty padded quietly down the stairs. She was still wearing the dress she'd borrowed from Michael's mother the day before, although it was quite rumpled now from being slept in. And dirty from being tossed aside at the lake. Her hair was still damp from their swim. She gripped Michael's hand tightly. Unlike her, it was easy to hear him walking down the stairs.

If she needs to be recalled someone will need to take her place for the time that she is back here. We can't leave the children unsupervised.:: Her mental voice sounds very distracted. Likely by whatever put Vai in the infirmary.


Cindra gives a small smile to Archena and speaks quietly, "Something called 'Gunkata'. I think it has to do with guns."

"Follow me. This is the infirmary. But I'm guessing you are eager to see something that isn't a medical facility," she said, smiling, leading Jessa towards the hallway.

In spite of his earlier agitation, Jeran now sat completely still, tail wrapped around his legs. He appears totally calm. Which seems a bit strange for him since he usually seems to be wound a bit too tight. Kind of a worrier.

Sense Motive DC 25:
It appears that Jeran is keeping his mind and emotions calm so as not to give this abyssal kidnapper any further information about him.

Cindra blushes and ducks her head, and her voice is a little defensive, "Well, it seemed interesting. I have never really seen one, only read about them." She shrugs, helpless to explain her choice.


Cultist City Assault

If either Jeran or Vickory were expecting a response, it appears the disembodied mental speaker provides nothing to support such.

Clearly, whatever 'status' Casseus has with this being, seems to only prompt it to speak with him, thus far.

Then again, it had referred to the two as Casseus' pets, or the like.

Cindra smiles warmly at Lucas, then waves to the group as she touches the wall and begins to walk away after the arrows.

Some short time later, having dropped her stuff off in her new room, Cindra steps hesitantly into a classroom and stands near the door waiting for the professor to arrive.

Mel finishes her scan and quickly loads the data from her sonic device to her datapad.

she seems lost a bit in thought as she starts running through all the information.

basic racial information, normal vitals, physically no problems. hmmmm, a lot of brain activity, psychic energies?

she look to Iolth, do you possess mental abilities, such as telepathic communication? or are you what they would call innately "magic"

she uses the finger quote thing at the word magic, her tone seems to indicate that she does not truly believe in what most would call magic.

In any event. you have a very unique and also very dangerous situation here. I am detecting a concentration of Artron energy, it is a mutated energy wave, emanating at over 1200 Mev while the usual levels, such as those that surround me operate at only about 500 Mev. Now while this is not really a concern, what is a concern is the source.

she sets the datapad on the floor and taps the screen. suddenly a 3D hologram of Iolth appears floating above the pad, with a slight reddish aura. the red aura glows brightest in the center of his chest.

Now see this spot here? she says pointing to the chest. This is the receiving point of the energy field around you. now of course you must be holding some sort of receiving device.

she makes some motions and its like she zoomed out as the hologram shrunk and the red aura seems to form a line that extends out a few inches from his chest there is a red sphere then it continues on off the view area.

where this line goes, is actually across the Time-Space Vortex, I guess you could call in another dimension. but in short it goes to another timeline, another reality. I have no idea what is on the other side, but it has a great deal of influence over you in this time line.

Mel pauses a bit as though there is something she is suddenly realizing... just a sec,

::Phaeze, I need you to see this, it is real important, and possibly a danger to the school::

there is more but time for your input
