I checked everyone for wounds and it was decided that Moxie would escort GrAnne and Sheldor back to the other mirrors and destroy them and then meet up with the rest of us in the large room. (Players missing at the beginning of the night)
I cast true seeing on myself and shield other on Friedrich. I was about to cast true sight on Davok when many voices shouted at once ( telling us to keep the screams down as we died, the master was in his study and was not to be disturbed). That's when the fireballs came raining down on us and Davok ran screaming (just to piss them off) straight into the large room. I told the troupe that the Peacock in the center was an illusion and healed myself. I then cast mislead, (turning me invisible and creating an exact duplicate of myself) my double and I split up. I needed to catch up to Davok in order to allow him to see the foe but he had a large lead on me. Friedrich and Kori'el went towards the center, Davok and Rikert moved straight down the left side of the room. I had my double moving straight till he got half way into the room then turn right.
As I got farther into the room I started spotting the enemy as they reached my true sight's range. At first I tried to avoid them for fear that they could see me but I realized that they couldn't, as they cast spells at my double. I had my double fend off the attacks like he was being effected by the spells. I finally reached Davok but he ran off before I could give him sight. I took a deep breath and raced after him again, this time giving him Desna's grace to see the enemy. He was very excited for his new sight. And started firing away at the enemy with his bow. At the same moment I gave Davok his sight I heard GrAnne scream in pain. I turned in time to see her falling from the sky and off her broom, she landed hard on the ground.
I had no time so I dimensional hopped to her and breathed a healing breath into her body. then healed her she groaned and looked right past me.. I turned to see what it was she saw but it was just her little dragon, I realized that she couldn't see me and might have thought that her dragon had saved her. Good enough for me. At that same moment Davok went down in a horrible display of bodily contortions. As if being eaten. I couldn't get to him in time to save him but I went anyway. I started to bring him back from his sleep but was interrupted by two of the mages running in our direction, they were being chased by the rest of the troupe, Friedrich, Kori'el, and Rikert. I readied myself for their arival and when they reached us I gave one of the mages a mighty whack with Simon's sword. It's much harder to swing than I thought and even mages with no armor don't just die when hit with a sword, I think it's best if I stick with the healing.
As the fight moved on from Davok's body I started the prayer again to bring him back to us. I finished the prayer at about the same time that the rest of my troupe mates finished the mages. I explained to them that there was a secret door next to Davok and I and after picking through the mages for loot we moved into the secret room.
There was a deceased man sitting at a table looking into a mirror. For what ever reason no one wanted to look at the mirror. One object of note other than the many books (many, many books) was the cloak the dead man had on. It looked like peacock feathers, so brightly colored. I'm pretty sure that i moved without even realizing it as I stroked the soft cloak and marveled at all the bright colors. Every one in the troupe agreed that I should have it. These guys are great. Wait till I tell them or show them what it does. Not only is it beautiful it is very functional as in dimensional door three times a day functional.
