Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

"Oh that is all kinds of not fair."

Trina takes another shot at the clockwork in the back of the room, hoping to further damage it, maybe even knock off the bits it just put back on.

Reload, shoot at 3.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 3

Second verse, same as the first. Trina takes a step back as she reloads then puts another bullet into the clockwork at the rear of the room.

Move to E7, shoot at 2.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 7


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina reloads as she sidesteps forward, then takes aim and fires off another shot at the clockwork in the rear of the room.

Move to F7 and shoot at C2.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 7


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

"So much for stealth...."

Trina draws her pistol as she makes her way into the room, stepping through the entrance and a few steps inside before lining up a shot at the machine looming over Sylvia.

Move 30 ft to G6, draw pistol as she moves, then fire at C1.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12 (Touch)
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 5

What knowledge check would be appropriate here? Arcana or Engineering I presume?


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina relocates to outside the door the others entered, staying in the hall with Jeremiah and keeping an eye out for any trouble that might come along.

After a few moments of thought, she tugs her hood back up after the latest bout of her hair shoving it off; the last thing they need right now is some unsuspecting teacher or student to catch a glimpse of her and run screaming to the school authorities.


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina mutters a curse under her breath and nods to Jeremiah. "Seems we're penned in," she announces quietly. "Unless we find another exit, we'll have to break our way out."


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina acknowledges the dwarf's arrival with a short nod, continuing her examining of the (possibly) blockaded door.

Having surrendered the lead of the investigation thus far to Sylvia's obvious experience and familiarity with the school, Trina has spent the majority of their time here thus far hanging back slightly, following the others' lead.

The tiefling is visibly on edge following the strange outburst of noise at the first door, and her gaze keeps drifting back toward it following the departure of the voices. She spares the dusty storage room/office merely a passing glance before making her way quietly back toward Jeremiah and the possibly-barricaded doorway.

While Sylvia and the newcomer investigate the other door in the newly-opened chamber, Trina gives the first an experimental push, quietly testing to see if it is indeed held shut somehow.


Qlippoth-spawn tieflings are very fun =) Very good choice. =D


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina listens quietly to the professor's short speech, especially the portion about observing the empty sections of sky and the ensuing rush and anxiety for information. Given their current situation, she can't help but feel the coincidence to be more than accidental.

"Thank you again for your assistance, and apologies for the intrusion," she offers, giving the older man a slight bow of her head, then turning to Jerry and the others. "I believe we should begin the search for the professor's 'belongings' swiftly. Sylvia, if you would lead on once more...?"


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

"A step ahead of you already," she replies, gesturing vaguely with the parchments in one hand.

At Sylvia's cue after their arrival, the tiefling steps up and lays out the parchments on the desk, then retrieves the rod from her satchel and lays it aside the documents.


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

"We would have made slightly better time, but we were a bit waylaid along the way," Trina explains, her expression still bright. "Sadly banditry has evolved with the times and whereas in the past their targets would have been lone travelers or easily-overcome carriages, they seem to have managed ways to disrupt even trains now."


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Trina waves brightly to the familiar faces. While her face is somewhat obscured by her hood, her appearance is probably distinctive enough that it really isn't necessary to recognize her. How many robed and hooded priestesses of Shelyn with six fingers to a hand could they know, anyway?

Train Group:
Trina observes the office scandal discussion with a passive expression while waiting for Sylvia to take the lead as to what to do next. While she waits, though, she retrieves the scraps of parchment with their odd drawings from the pocket where they are stored along with the strange portal-controlling rod, while leaving the latter in its hidden compartment. The drawings instead are moved to her coat pocket, for easier retrieval when Sylvia finds the right person to show them to.

Train Group:
Trina watches the interaction between Sylvia and the professor with a somewhat mystified eye, and can't quite keep up with the constantly-shifting path of dialogue until a few moments after it's over. As soon as she starts attempting to retrieve the scraps and parchments recovered from the elder things' "experiment", suddenly Sylvia is off again, and Trina's stuffing her pack closed once more before giving chase, attempting to keep pace with the excitable elf.

Gripping her satchel with one hand and her hood with the other, she follows the alchemist through the halls of the school until they arrive at a room to her looks as nondescript and unmemorable as every other in this place, with only minor variance of decor and arrangement between each to differentiate them. If nothing else she's certainly decisive about the place, Trina observes, somewhere between bitter and impressed. At least she seems to know what she's doing, at any rate.

The tiefling relaxes into a random desk chair and sets her pack on the table before her while they wait for whoever Sylvia has brought them to see in this case. When Goodwin arrives, she sits up a little straighter and checks to make sure her hood's in place, but doesn't yet stand.

Train Group:
Trina remains a step or two behind Sylvia, allowing her to take the lead in conversations and directions.

Train Group:
If the inn serves meals as well, Trina will see to acquiring breakfast while she waits for the rest of her group to rouse.

Once everyone is up, she approaches the group to repeat her recommendations from the evening prior. "Good morning. Do we need any further errands or stops along the way, or should we head to the University to begin research while we wait on Jeremiah and Caladrel?"

Spoiler:
"Seems a problematic solution," Trina says quietly, between bites of the provided food. "We can't guarantee they will have come this way, we might attract the wrong travelers looking for parted-ways companions unless we make the sign extremely specific, and I don't know if we have the resources to make such a thing."

After a few moments she shrugs. "We said when we parted ways that we would be coming here to investigate what we could find at the university. I imagine if nothing else that they would be able to find their way there, so why delay our own arrival? We can begin our research, and once they arrive they can join us."

Train Group:
Trina, clearly out of her element in a city easily ten times larger - if not more - than the biggest town she's ever visited before, follows Sylvia's lead. She tugs her hood repeatedly back into place and attempts to keep her tail hidden beneath her skirt, not wanting to attract more attention to herself than necessary. The crowd of the city is clearly something she has little experience with, and at the moment Sylvia is the person she knows best who has experience with this sort of thing.

"I would not be opposed," Trina says simply.

Train Group:
Trina merely shrugs, having no real way to gauge the proper speeds of such things.

"That sounds good to me," she replies, glancing toward Sylvia.

Train Group:
"We've a few more of our party arriving in a day or two," Trina explains calmly, reflexively tugging at her hood to make sure it's still in place.

She decides it's best not to mention the lion at all.

Trina gestures for Sylvia to lead the way. "You know your way around here better than us, where to first?"

Train Group:
Hearing their destination announced, Trina immediately begins packing up what things she had used during the short trip... which, admittedly, is mostly limited to her combat equipment. Making sure she has her cane at hand and the hood of her cloak still in place - thankfully not yet pushed aside again by her tendrils - she collects her baggage and makes for the exit, glancing back to make sure Smitty and Sylvia aren't far behind.


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Train Group:
Trina gives a thorough and as accurate recollection as she can, speaking calmly and precisely as possible.

Train Group:
"Yes, let's not cause any more damage than necessary," she mutters, while taking the time to bandage the bullet wound in her arm. Once that task is done she turns her attention back to the train officials. "I apologize for the mess, terms of surrender were offered and I would have much preferred to handle this without bloodshed but it very quickly became clear that until convinced otherwise these brigands were uninterested." She gestures to the safe and, unless he's evacuated in the chaos, the railway agent who had been forced into opening it by the first two bandits. "The thieves had one captive who was being encouraged at gunpoint to open that safe, until our interference."

Train Group:
Trina manages to regain control of her anger when the remaining thief drops into a surrendering pose. She points a clawed finger back the way the other surviving bandit fled. "I strongly suggest you join your friend and evacuate this train immediately. And find another occupation if you don't wish a repeat of this." The tendrils under her hair sway irritably, twitching and writhing, the eyes blinking and staring mostly at the cowering, trembling survivor or off after the fleeing man.

If he flees, she relaxes almost immediately, rage evaporating into nothing as the focus of her fury departs. "I'll take care of the bodies," she announces to her companions. "Would you two see that the other passengers are well? I fear I might elicit an undesired reaction." She takes the gutted thief and drags the body toward the car's nearest open-air exit, hopefully not leaving too much gore in her wake.

The blurred tiefling gives a bestial snarl as she drives the glaive forward in a violent sweep, cutting upwards diagonally across the bandit's torso as the long blade whirls through the air.

Trina motions toward Sylvia and Smitty, signifying someone's approach. She then steps a short distance away from the door and prepares to launch herself at the first thing to pass through that isn't a train official.

Readied action.

[b]"Leave him," Trina hisses, shoving the dead bandit's body aside and making her way forward toward the opposite end of the car. She pauses at the next door, listening for the sound of the other bandits beyond.

"T'would be appreciated," she manages to growl between her teeth.

Blur 20% miss (lower is better): 1d100 ⇒ 69

The tiefling snarls at the pain of the bullet wound but doesn't relent her assault; rather, if blood is going to be shed then attempts to handle the situation nonlethally have come to an end. She takes another swing, this time lunging with the blade of the glaive rather than sweeping with the blunt end.

Activating Justice Judgement - +2 attack
Attack: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 7 + 2 = 14

Train Group:
Taking advantage of the woman's moment of confusion thanks to Sylvia, Trina swaps her gun for the glaive in her tail and lunges, charging the perplexed bandit. She interposes herself between her and the cringing mechanic, and sweeps the blade in a low arc, attempting to pull the bandit off her feet.

Move to F2 and trip attempt.
CMD: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13

"Set down the gun and kneel." She nods to Sylvia. "Do take it off his hands, if you would."

She then turns her gaze to the other bandit. "You'd be wise to do the same. Or we can shed some blood, which I'm certain you've factored into your plans for today, haven't you?" She turns, pointing the pistol in her direction now, while her glaive is still gripped in her tail. "There are three of us and one of you. We have both guns and blades, plus healing magic, which I would wager you lack save perhaps a potion or two. Let's be practical here."


Female Tiefling (Motherless) Inquisitor [Sin Eater, Preacher] 4 [HP: 25/28] [AC: 16 | T: 11 | FF: 15]

Train Group:
"I am afraid that is not an option. The contents of this vessel do not belong to you. Drop your weapons and yield, or we will be forced to remove them." She bares her fangs slightly at the bandit in front of her, and as if on cue, the eyes on the tendrils curling out of her hair suddenly open, glancing around the chamber before locking onto the nearest thief and glaring in their bizarre cephalopodian way.

Train Group:
"Go," she whispers, tugging down the hood of her cloak, drawing her gun, and charging into the room.

Trina doesn't give the bandits time to think. The path is clear, and it's a much swifter, much more direct path to simply bolt at the first bandit, putting herself between him and the cowering worker, than try to sneak up on him. The blurred, freakish tiefling lunges at the worker, pistol in hand and bared toward the robbers. "Drop the guns," she snarls, hefting her own weapon toward the head of the man in front of her.

Move to H3. If the man makes a hostile action, she's not averse to putting a bullet in him after what she's seen.

Train Group:
Trina signals subtly to Sylvia and Smitty toward the redheaded woman off to the side, then gestures to herself then toward the man with the worker at gunpoint.

How far is it to the loud man, and are there any cover or obstacles - boxes, storage, etc. - in the room? That'll affect how she goes about this.

Train Group:
"Lovely, a hostage situation," Trina mutters under her breath. "Our time is likely regretfully short. Time to act swiftly."

She closes her eyes, and her entire body seems to shimmer, suddenly blurring, fading into the surrounding air as if she had begun to go incorporeal. She then attempts to open the door as silently as possible, get a look at what awaits her on the other side, and move before the opponent gets the opportunity.

Activating extended blur SLA. Stealth roll was posted above, if I don't need to make a second roll.

"Voices ahead," she says, speaking low and quietly to her two companions. "We might be able to catch them unawares." Trina attempts to sneak closer to the other door and listen in on the conversation within before bursting in or being noticed.

Train Group:
"Which means I'm going in first, then?" Trina replies with a slight smirk. "Best we not be caught unawares, I think. La beno de la eterna leviĝis sur nin ĉiujn." The same bolstering fearlessness fills the trio as the tiefling finishes her spell, then glaive in hand and healing wand in tail she pushes her hood back, steps up to the door, and nods to Sylvia. "Let's give our bandits a little panic attack, shall we? Open it up."

Bless to the party.

"So. Do we have a plan? Or are we merely bursting in hoping to catch them unawares?" Trina glances between her two companions as they make their way toward the rearmost car, absently patting her belt to make sure her holstered pistol and her chirurgeon's bag are in their expected places.

Trina was just heading back to the car to get her equipment, after that it'd be much quicker to follow on the ground, where they won't have to fight crowds and doors.

"Bandits. Clever of them." The tiefling flashes the alchemist a fanged grin. "Shall we go ruin their day?" Without waiting for an answer she's headed back to their car to retrieve her glaive and gear.

Trina always liked the rain, even during the less pleasant days of having to trudge for miles and miles in it. The chill never really got to her - a blessing of her fiendish blood, she was told - and something about the grey skies and misty air was refreshing. She remains watching outside the window while engaged in conversation, glancing occasionally at Sylvia or Smitty whenever one of the two speaks up then turning her gaze back to the passing scenery when discussion lulls.

When the stop comes, she rocks in her seat as the train screeches to a halt, clutching her satchel with one hand and grabbing the anchor-post of the table with her tail out of reflex. "Something's gone wrong?" she asks of no one in particular.

Train Group:
Trina presents her ticket as well without complaint or comment, hoping not to attract further unwanted attention, then follows the alchemist to a seating area. She gives a nod of thanks to Sylvia for the offered sweets and chews on one thoughtfully while watching the windows as the train begins to move.

"I would be most interested in visiting, and not only for the purposes of the investigation," the tiefling replies with a broad smile. "I must say I've never visited a city as large as our destination, they tend to have their own doctors and hospitals and have little need for traveling physicians as a result. So I'm eager to make the most of the experience. It's a pity we're looking to deal with this situation as swiftly as possible, I'd love the opportunity to spend more time there."
