"Figures." Samen always knew it would end suddenly and in futility.

All joking aside, I echo everything Abnaki said. It's been a joy playing in this sandbox for the past few years. Thanks for being the man behind the curtain. Enjoy this new season in your life, and maybe traumatize a few kids with some epic TPKs. ;)

Samen can:

1) Cast ray of frost continuously. Average of 2 dmg per round means 1200 dmg per hour, not taking into account if it might be weak to cold.

2) Use Elemental Sight periodically to detect any differences in structure or signs of changes.

3) Throw in a couple shatters to break up bigger chunks (targeted far enough away so shrapnel wouldn't hit anyone).

(Also, completely unrelated, I heard a great name for this guy over the weekend. Osteo-ferocious.)

Sorry for not posting, I've been a little under the weather the last couple of days. I'll get to it tomorrow.

Samen thinks about it, and realizes that all of his magic is purely utilitarian, and most of the utility is violence. He had become so accustomed to it that it seemed the only use for it. He thinks back to when he was as callow as these, how the elements were a fascination and mystery rather than barely manageable disasters. Those were simpler times. Quieter times.

He throws out a few rays of frost and acid splashes at the ground and trees around them. Hold onto that curiosity, little ones. I hope you live long enough to satisfy it.

Samen happily leaves Hearth behind. Many interesting adventures and discoveries had happened there, to be sure, but it's also where his family broke apart. Perhaps Wamblee and Iniga could yet be saved, but he isn't optimistic.

Hearth does, however, hold the distinction for Samen of being the only town he's ever left that hasn't been destroyed, had agents chasing him out, or both. So at least there's that.

I'm going to be on vacation and unable to post until Sunday. Feel free to bot me if necessary.

Sorry if I read the situation wrong, I thought the tree was trying to kill us. Honestly, I still don't understand how killing Odebie and threatening to kill the rest of us counts as a friendly plot-forwarding message, but miss-reading the room is on brand for Samen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Craft Calligraphy: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (10) + 15 = 25

Samen looks over his handiwork and offers some pointers.
"Hmm, not bad, but your majuscule descenders are out of proportion with your minuscules. You want them to draw the eye, but remain in balance. Embellish, but not overpower. As with everything undine, it's all about the flow and motion. I once had the privilege of working in ice for a competition."

He remembers why he's here and gets back on topic. "But yes, I am interested in some of your wares. This spoon, specifically."

Samen taps his fingers to his chin in consideration. "Fascinating. Has "plasma" always existed, or are you the first of your kind? In any event, I've heard of just the sort of thing that you're looking for. Let's go see if we can find it."

I'm going shopping for one of those classic gruel spoons that never run out but are always horrible.

Knowledge Planes: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (9) + 15 = 24 (Have I ever heard of plasma before?)

Samen goes out into the streets and starts walking in that direction, giving Abby a dubious side eye. "Potentially. What were you thinking of snacking on? Before your latest infusion, your aspects happened to balance out with elen civilization in such a way that cohabitation was tenuous, but possible, given you had interesting foes to consume. We've been in no short supply on that front.

Now, though, I don't know your needs and I don't know how to trust you. I don't even know what to call you anymore. You've clearly transcended mere "Smoke". You suggested eating a Blessed yesterday, which is understandable, but more ambitious than I'm accustomed to. If you had pursued that goal, we might all be dead now. So please, speak to me of your nature. Give me a taste of it, if you must. But I need to know if 'I need a snack from the magic shops' means you want to consume potions, magic items, merchants, or simply some more bacon.

If any elen is going to trust you, you know it would be me. But I'm no fool, you're an elemental and slave to your nature. So if I am to trust you, I must know your nature."

Ha! Stof isn't done being useful!

Samen rotates the woodcut of the known world around and points out Hearth, and a rough estimation of where Wamblee and Iniga would be by now. "They're both physical specimens, though, and in a hurry. There's a good chance they've made it even further."

What has it even been, 4 or 5 days since they left?

To Abby, "It seems as though you may have internalized some aspects from Moon's champion, just as you did by eating elens. I would like to discuss this further with you away from..." He glances around at the assembled chosen. "... erm, away from here."

With a pin put in that concerning development, Samen chuckles softly at the confusion. "It would seem our Fey friend is playing a trick on us by haunting more than one of us at once. I know Krz, or Krzystoff for short, as the spirit that makes Abnaki partially Fey. How do you know him?"

Samen's gaze roams from the Declarative to the golem to Abnaki. I could maybe finish her off, but...

"Volc it."

Samen swoops down and scoops up Abanki like a hawk, then flies up and over the golem toward Gabriel, maintaining a height of 30 feet.

"You're no good as a symbol of resistance if you're flattened, Abnaki."

I figure a full round action fly speed of 60 ft (30 while "grappling" Abnaki) should put me roughly where I placed us, but feel free to adjust as necessary.

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Samen cringes as Abby turns back against him. Well Volc. That's not better.

He considers his options, and, perhaps it's the Fey blood, but he smirks at the irony he just realized he can exploit in this magical battle of linguistics.

He calls out to Abby. I have been many things to you, Abby. I have been your enemy and friend. I have been your student and teacher. I have been your lover. I have been your advocate, your defender, your provider, and your guide. But I have never been your master. No, indeed, the only master you know right now is the one giving you orders. As she has declared, so let it be done. Far be it from me, or even from her, to contradict such a profound declaration. Let it be so. Love her last breath."

Falling damage: 2d6 ⇒ (1, 1) = 2

AoO:
ToHit: 1d20 + 15 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 15 + 7 = 29
Damage: 1d6 + 12 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 12 + 6 = 19

Samen takes a moment to collect himself and have a brief conversation with this new old threat.

You execrable malignancy! Quit punishing me for crimes done in innocence you odious abomination! I have been nothing but patient and tolerant of you, and this fight is as much yours as mine. If you don't like controlling golems, imagine how Moon will make you dance in the wind if he wins. You issued me three banes unjustly. Now you owe me three boons. Release those three dust spirits animating those golems back to the dust plane, and we're square. Refuse at your own peril.

That business aside, he resorts to conventional tactics.

Charging up staff to be +5 flaming, casting (fire) frostbite, then 5-foot stepping into the strike zone.

Attack from spell:
ToHit: 1d20 + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 ⇒ (1) + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 = 23
Damage: 1d6 + 12 + 6 + 2 + 2d6 + 9 ⇒ (5) + 12 + 6 + 2 + (6, 4) + 9 = 44

Normal attack:
ToHit: 1d20 + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 ⇒ (16) + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 = 38
Damage: 1d6 + 12 + 6 + 2 + 2d6 + 9 ⇒ (1) + 12 + 6 + 2 + (6, 4) + 9 = 40

Haste: iirc, you nerfed this so I can't get the attack from the spell and haste, right? If I remembered that wrong...
ToHit: 1d20 + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 ⇒ (1) + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 = 23
Damage: 1d6 + 12 + 6 + 2 + 2d6 + 9 ⇒ (5) + 12 + 6 + 2 + (2, 2) + 9 = 38

Second iterative attack:
ToHit: 1d20 + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 - 5 ⇒ (1) + 15 + 7 + 2 - 2 - 5 = 18
Damage: 1d6 + 12 + 6 + 2 + 2d6 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 12 + 6 + 2 + (1, 6) + 9 = 42

Edit: Wow dice...

Samen is starting to get a little nervous about all these golems under his control. It goes against his style to not liquidate threats permanently, but two of his allies are in danger, so he goes deeper down this path.

"All of you, restrain the Sylph."

Spellcraft: 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (18) + 18 = 36

As the golems approach, Samen takes a deep breath of air energy and takes flight into the air.

Using arcana to gain fly speed. Sorry for the last minute buff; it's been ages since there was a fight where it would've been relevant and I forgot I could do it.

Taking liberties ahoy!

Samen hasn't done anything particularly strenuous or emotionally taxing today, so he doesn't need the rest. Instead, he wanders the halls of the temple, etching elemental runes, much like he uses on his staff, in defensible positions and instructing guards on how to access their power when the time is needed.

Moreover, he takes Moon-form to have a proper grasp of Doppish, so as to prepare traps that only those who know Doppish would be susceptible to. (The old 'I prepared explosive runes today' gag.)

Samen considers coming to Gabriel's defense as well, but Abnaki had, as usual, stated it far better than he was capable of. It was clear they had different motives for being in this fight, but nobody's devotion could be questioned.

He scans their assembled menagerie, and each, to an el, bore the touch of extra-planar power. We're are the ones that have the tools to fight, for the freedom of all elenity, so we're the ones who will fight. How can so few stand up to the power of a God?

He ponders this in silence as the temple looms larger. Today, it was neither civic center, nor seat of pious dogma, but a citadel from which to make a stand. All division is irrelevant in the face of an overwhelming foe.

"Aren't you on the council?? We're with the Happy Swords, mercenaries, who at the moment are focused on destroying Moon for the good of all elenity. And presumably profit; that's not my department." He looks over at Abnaki. "The captain is handling that part, right?"

Upon close inspection, Samen is a dour Oread, covered in mystical tattoos for those with an eye to discern them. Though his body is young, it's covered in scars from fights old and recent. For those with the ability to sense it, he clearly bears just as many emotional scars.

"Anyway, my name is Samen and I'm an elemental specialist. This delightful femme fatale here is a Smoke elemental named Abbigailiwy. Don't get her too curious or she might eat you, just to see what you taste like. Don't try to change her, it won't go well with you."

Samen only slightly unclenches when he realizes who just tore open reality. He makes a mental note that he should learn that trick, given the chance.

He quickly glances back and forth from the preening bird to Abby. They're either going to be the best of friends or this is going to be a problem. I don't think this bar is big enough for two narcistic elementals.

Putting that thought aside for the moment, "That was as stunning an entrance as we've been led to believe is your custom. Well done. We've done our best to prepare the city as a whole. What can you tell us of Moon's plan of attack?"

Samen raises an eyebrow at Abnaki quizically. "Couldn't you feel it yourself? I expect you would've been feeling more subdued, but then, you've only been this version of you for a day or two. Hmm, maybe your elenity stabilized things? Intriguing."

"Ah, I did it again. Sorry. It seems the Fey have developed a method of ordering chaos. It makes Fey be... well, bland. Given time, I imagine it would make Abby sullen, or worse, capable of long term planning. If anything, it might empower ol' Dusty I'm carrying around. And most importantly, Moon's madness should be attenuated."

"Given how powerful this weapon would be against themselves, they've also wisely created this enchanted fabric to dampen the dampeners."

We need to get the word out; Sylphs who don't need to be out and about tonight need to be sheltering here. If they go mad, they're of no use in a fight."

Samen is in an uncharacteristic good mood. Perhaps Abnaki's tale had an impact on even his cold soul, or perhaps it's just the mood of the town seeping in through his pores. Regardless, he tries to make a joke. "Figured out? No, we thought you were dead. We were just coming to complete the mission. I'm glad you're not dead."

Samen glances back and forth between Abby and Gabe. "This smells like conjuration magic. I think you made Krz jealous, m'dear. We should probably head over to the elder to retrieve him."

Samen clears his throat awkwardly. "Ahem... Their return and moonfall happening on the same night... Seems a little convenient, doesn't it? My understanding is they lead with their hearts, not their heads, and the people love them for it. I also get the impression their heads are fairly empty and their hearts lack discernment.

You, on the other hand, strike me as an el who plans three tiers of backup plans. Suppose these blessed do something... let's be charitable... stupid. Are there contingencies in place to... let's be discrete... remove them?"

Samen gives the merchant a backhanded wave. "Bah! That feels like a year ago. Bygones and such! You may be pleased to learn that the purchaser we were after, V'Apore, has shed all pretense and assumed his true form, that of a cowardly snake."

He leaves that subject on that cryptic, yet inarguably true, statement.

"This time we've come to shop." He raises an eyebrow at the gentleman's "hat". "But I see you're taking Moon's influence seriously. You rightly should. He can be resisted. He can be fought. He can be overcome. Spread this news, and if you can, help with the creation and distribution of will enhancing materials. Time is short, but the battle will be won or lost on the backs of our infrastructure, not the strength of our steel."

"Now then, what do you have?"

After the couple of day's Abnaki's had, this seems like an appropriate level of attention. :D

Samen does his best to subtly step back.

She's either going to kill him or kiss him. And then kill him. I've tried to tell him you can't negotiate with smoke from a fire. You either feed it, kill it, or with much effort, redirect it. Perhaps once he learns this, I'll feed her v'Apore's fingers. He won't need them much longer.

Samen shrugs in indifference, glad that he sees Abnaki coming over. "The kindness isn't false, the words weren't misleading, and they certainly weren't intended as weapons. We're obviously curious of your intentions, plans, and motives, but I don't begrudge you following your convictions. Of course, those convictions leading you to attempt sneaking an army in is at the very least problematic. The fact your 'god' robs els of their ability to have convictions of their own isn't great either."

As Abnaki gets into earshot, he makes one final statement, deferring to the el with the golden (perhaps wooden now?) tongue. "But I'm not a diplomat or inquisitor, I'm just a guy with a stick, some bacon, and a hungry elemental friend."

Samen thanks Shema one last time as the spell fades and the twinkling ceases. He frowns. Two disturbing visions for the price of one. This was meant to be a happy end to a rough day.

He tosses and turns as the dreamlands evade him. In his anguish, he cannot decide which is worse; Soulless Sylphs, as mechanical as the golems they create, or a universe big enough to make all Elenity a mere blip of a rounding error.

Samen's heart warms a little as he sees the familiar sparkle, and thinks of days long ago.

"First, I'll update you on what's new here. We have successfully negotiated an alliance with the non-gem Fey and at least a détente with the Salamanders. Gem is working with Moon. Moon inquisitors are seeking to teleport an army of golems here through the Dreamlands, which we've at least temporarily thwarted. Wamblee and Iniga have gone North to rejoin the tribes."

"As for why I called you, what is going on in Light right now? Is it torn asunder, dead and asleep, or building a war machine? We need to know if our fight is just with Moon, or with all of Light."

"On a more personal note, did Mar make it there okay?"

Samen gathers up materials for an offering for Shama. Silver shavings, diamond dust, and glittering gold. Scintillating baubles for a star's pleasure. He spreads it out over a black mat and hangs a torch over it for light and shadow to interact and sparkle.

"Come, Shama. I have questions for you, and new friends to meet."

Thank you Oread magi, for teaching me this spell.

Samen points at the bulk of the mirrors and, with uncharacteristic calm, simply says, "Be still."

Casting AoE Shatter on the big group of them. Any pieces of glass weighing 8 pounds or less, well, shatter (DC 15 will save negates). I put a green circle on to mark the AoE.

Samen finishes his ritual before answering Ozhna. "Small sparkly things. They have light magic purer than Volcano, live in the Breathless Valleys, and have fraternity and hope as primary aspects. There's more that exists beyond what Dark and Volcano allow us to know. Ask me later, and I'll call one up so you can see."

"WAUGH!!!" Samen jumps nearly out of his skin. A creeping sensation goes down his spine as the elemental attempts to restrain him. The magical intrusion is bad enough, but the real terror is that he could've done this at any time.

"My goodness, I forgot all about you in there." He pulls a wooden disc out of his pack, with the geography of the known world carved into it. It's not obvious by looking at it, but Samen talking to it implies a spirit lives within. "Stupid, I know, but it is your nature to be happily neglected. Nevertheless, it's always good to learn the weaknesses of those who will inevitably one day turn on you."

"There's no need for today to be that day, though. I must join my companions investigating these dank tunnels, but I offer two possible compromises. One, I can channel you into some dry dirt and put you into a stoppered bottle, or two, I can simply fly over the water and avoid the whole conflict."

He looks up and notices his companions quizzical stares. "Ah, yes. Everyone, please meet Stof. Twice as murderous as Abby and half as polite. I keep him around because I honestly don't think I could take him in a fight, and I'm afraid to let him out of my sight. As a creature of Dust, he's mostly only dangerous if disturbed. Apparently, water is quite 'disturbing'."

Samen, not confident he could lie about it later, drops his trousers and adds to the feculence. Putting his head between his legs, "I must admit, this is an odd way for an elen to make introduction, but what's your name? I'm Samen."

Samen simply nods, acknowledging the awkwardness of the situation. "Yes, indeed. He proposed an alliance between us, Gem, and Moon against the Dark, with only a slight bit of purely unintentional enslavement." He holds his fingers a centimeter apart, for effect.

"Still, though, good to know where the players stand. So how about it, Bozhe, and the other two undoubtedly listening? Where do you stand?"

Samen nods in acknowledgement. For some reason Julian seems to have fixated on him. "Today's 'small mistakes' are tomorrow's legends. An unintentional, yet unrelinquished enslavement is enslavement nonetheless.

As for the Dark..." He gestures at Gabriel. "He is the second elen I've seen living reasonably independently while touched by the Dark. What you present is a false choice for Elenity. If we are plunged into Darkness, then we will do what we do. Adapt. None of us here may survive, but some fraction would. In thousands of years, tales would be told in a language we cannot know of how the righteous Dark heroes overthrew evil Volcano. Better to have no elemental masters at all, but what tales would be told among elens in a world dominated by Gem's conformity and Moon's madness?"

Samen strokes his chin in thought. "Philosophical differences aside, why tell us? What influence do we have over what Gem and Moon decide to do? If you wish to fight Dark, I cannot stop you. But being the enemy of our enemy does not necessarily make you our friend any more than it makes Dark our friend."

Samen winces in pain as the arm squeezes, but what else did he expect to happen? He repositions once again, so that he's holding it down with gravity and his feet. He then threads some rope between the radius and ulna, wraps it around the humerus and across the palm, and ultimately even the fingers. He pulls tight and ties it off.

(Tie up action, which when writing it out seems like a lot for one standard action, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. It should take a DC 30 CMB check to escape.)

Samen realizes he was staring. "Oh, uh, indeed. You said you smelled strange magic. I don't know if it's the magic you're interested in, but I specialize in... mutability."

He plants his staff on the wood beneath him and drives magical tendrils roots from it into the ground and himself, making a channel for the essence to flow.

You might want to make way for a moment, dear.

He draws deeply of their nature and displaces his natural Oread heritage once again. Done so many times now, it simply feels like changing a shirt.

His skin softens and gets grainy, turning light brown instead of grey. He grows a foot taller, but loses weight in the process. As the spell finishes, he stretches out his long limbs, feeling the boundaries of a novel body.

I'm guessing from the guard outfit that Bozhe has possessed an Oread in a procedure similar to Abby. How confident is Samen that he could infuse himself with Fey essence now?

Samen bows in respect to all three of them. "Of course. I am not as talented as my friend, but I will tell you my tale. I was in Light when Moon rose. I watched the city rip itself apart in his wake. My family and I surely would've been consumed by the cacophony of maddened Sylphs if not for the intervention of Star and Dust. I've inhaled deeply of the essence of Smoke and been guided by the prophecies of Mud. You speak of gems; I've battled gemling infiltrators in the north. I've rejected nature and have learned to alter my own essence; to choose my own aspects."

He pauses for a moment, considering if he need mention anything else in his resume before getting to the point. "More has happened in the last year than in the last hundred. The Steams have vanished, the inquisition evaporated, Moon emerges, Dziecko emerges, there's a drake on this city council, Undines are going comatose (probably due to an as yet unknown elemental), and just this morning we found a Salamander making deals in the cracks of the city. Elementals are on the move in an elen world.

To get to the point, I want to ensure this realm is preserved for elenity, though Volc knows it doesn't deserve it." He thinks of the 'honored' Oreads. "To that end, I would seek to oust elemental tyrants claiming godhood and send them back from whence they came. This certainly includes Moon. Possibly Volcano. Frankly, I'm here to evaluate if this Elder will aid in the fight, or if elenity must stand alone. Secondarily, if you can shed light on why the boundaries of the realms are thinning, it would be good if we could prevent further degradation and perhaps even push it back."

Samen has an instinct to prepare for a fight, but realizes that this deep in, it would be pointless. As much as he would have elens stand on their own feet, he is now at the mercy of elementals.

Samen steps in fearlessly. "Certainly. Host? Mouthpiece?" Samen's eyes narrow a bit. "Slave?" Just as quickly, the moment of hostility is gone. "I am Samen Firenze, a humble mage of no account, interested in studying elementals to understand elenity."

Samen, well versed in all sorts of languages, translates for Abnaki. "It seems collecting knowledge is high on this list of Wooden aspects and they've got you pegged as a story teller, my friend. Careful, though. Tell too many too well and they'll make you a prophet. Remind me some time and I'll tell you about the time a tree tried to steal my soul in exchange for forbidden knowledge up north in Branch."

Samen turns back to their hostess and bows in assent. "So be it. If the elemental has gotten so big he's developed his own bureaucracy, there is no hope in fighting against it."
