Smiles

It can't hurt. Listen, I'll tell you something ..

Whispers

There's a shapeshifter causing trouble here. Anyone could be suspect. Anyone act weird, detect away on them ...

You got it. I'll do my best. Let me know if there's anything else you need.

She goes back to the bar area and scans anyone left at the club carefully, using her ability to detect evil on anyone in range.


A few of the exiting patrons flash evil, but since they are denizens of the Lower Planes, that is pretty self evident. Most folk are flashing out for the evening, as Acme has stopped mixing drinks


Alaina starts her day by dressing in formal priestesswear and doing a survey of the ground of her realm. Her altargirls follow along, holding censers, chanting liturgy and a host of other clerical things. She wards the realm with potent magics, trying her best to make sure that thse with bad intent will be shown. After a few hours she calls it off and flops down by the bar.

This is harder than I thought. I can't just bar evil, that's half my client base ...

Calling for a pot of tea, some muffins and a few magical codexes, she spreads out on a bistro table and begins researching.


Well I could install a titanium iris on the omniportal, 1 millimeter from the event horizon, that would block anyone without the proper code. Radio signals would be fine.

Errr...been done somewhere before but I can't recall where.

Seeing the celestial on guard the dwarf beats a hasty retreat.

Never mind!

The Exchange

Angel looks around and bangs on the bar. "Acme, what's the deal? I want a Dark and Stormy, and I want it now."


JH and Lyn (hopefully) arrive at the Club. JH quickly scans anyone within range for weapons, using his x-ray vision insert from the Jacks.

He thinks to himself, 'Hey, this is useful for more than peeping.' He's not one to leave a job half-done so he does a thorough scan of the room's attendees.


LJ casts true seeing and does her own security sweep. She stays close to JH. Partly because there was a good chance he would flip if she tried to go off on her own. He'd been very protective since Angel had delivered her warning of betrayal. Part of her enjoyed the attention, but another part was worried. After all, the only way to truly ensure the safety of everyone was...no, she wasn't going to think about that anymore. It wasn't a path she was willing to pursue so there was no point dwelling on it. She spotted Ash by the bar and gave a little wave, then did a double take. There was something not quite...right. Something about her sister's aura was a little bit...off.

There's something wrong with Ashaundra's aura. she whispered to JH

Sorry I've been so in and out today. Spring yardwork. Yech.

*whisper back* Corrupted? Could she be our shapeshifter? Or in league with your mother's plans?

Frogskin flies in.

"No, she's probably only sick. I have heard tell of a strange disease in the Celestial Plane. Not harmful to anyone, but it confuses the aura."

"No, she's probably only sick. I have heard tell of a strange disease in the Celestial Plane. Not harmful to anyone, but it confuses the aura."

Ack! It's not polite to eavesdrop.


He chuckles darkly.
"Also, what you think? It is wrong. Candle Lighter does not overestimate his power. He knows that he will be betrayed, and the Goddess knows that she will. Right now, it's a battle for who gets the chance first."


LJ frowns. She doesn't trust the raven's words. Well, he was probably right about Candle Lighter and the goddess. They weren't the most trustworthy pair. But a disease that confuses the aura of celestials? It seemed a little too convenient.

Just to be safe, I wouldn't tell Ash too much. she whispers to JH, using her hand to mask her words from the raven.

The Exchange

"Probably for the best," Angel says. "I know someone close to you ultimately betrays you, I just don't know who. JH is the only one who is above suspicion because of his role with the resistance."

Just popped in to see what's up. And now I'm gone again.

Jay shakes his head sadly.

"I am afraid that NOBODY is above suspicion. If a mother would disown her, and a woman indebted to one would abandon him in need, then a lover could turn on her."

Take care bird-brain. I have yet to initiate my new hammer.

Frogskin glares at him.

"I would like to show you why you should not, but I made KC a promise. I must go."
He disappears in a cloud of red energy.


Alaina gets the clubs bar rolling and gets Acme to serve everyone. She listens to the discussions and stays in the background


The omniportal flashes and Warforged rushes in, axe in hand. Spotting LJ and JH he rushes to him, barely slowing. He spots Ash and places himself between them and the celestial.

*whispers as best he can* There may be danger here. Your mother was not your mother. Your sister may not be your sister.

Frogskin looks shocked, reappearing again.

"What?" He says, too loudly. "You think Lynora's sister may be an impostor?!"


Ash looks shocked and hurt.
Lyn, what's going on here? What is this? You know me. Don't listen to this nonsense.


LJ looks torn. She doesn't want to believe anything bad of her sister, but Warforged Jack has no reason to lie. And there was that business with the aura.
Just stay over there, Ash. Let me get this sorted out. Let me figure out what the truth is.


Ashaundra wrote:

Frogskin nods.

"Indeed. Whatever the faults of the mother, you cannot assume that all who are related to Lynora are traitors. What grounds have you to make these false accusations?"


Enough Raven! Perhaps you are the shapeshifter that seeks to sow discord! Perhaps you are just an illusion sent by our enemies. We'll see!

JH swings his hammer.


This will reveal if there is a Fallen among us!

The dwarf begins chanting in a mix of celestial and dwarvish, and a wave of positive energy bursts forth from him.

Frogskin chuckles darkly. The hammer flies away from Frogskin, and will try to fly from Jack hammer's hand.

"Hmm, well have fun killing the 'traitor'. Heh heh. Psychology is very fun, do you not agree?"
He turns to Ash.
"Have fun, dear, and remember that our offer still stands. Since these folk betrayed you, you may wish fro a new job working alongside us for the Goddess."
He turns to the others.
"Jay Frogskin was very amusing, while he lived."
He disappears.

Wasp appears, and counters it with a word.

"Now, now, no suing that unfairly. You don't want to kill me, energy of life can be--wait, what's going on?!"
He looks around, and quickly casts a spell to reveal what has happened.


In Ash's head...

Spoiler:
"Good work, dear. Play along. Act like we gave you an offer, and you declined. Make CERTAIN not to reveal who I actually am."


Warforged Jack wrote:

The positive energy washes over Ash, ripping away her carefully contructed false aura. The young Erinyes chuckles.

That raven really does need to try to keep up with the situation better. I've been working for the goddess all along. You should have seen the look on mother's face when I stabbed her in the back during the binding ritual, Lyn. It was truly priceless.


Hey, Poetry has a profile now.


Wasp frowns.
"Hmm, this is not goo--wait."
He turns to the others.
"The Goddess is your problem now, just as Candle Lighter is ours." He says bitterly. "I will not make Kobold Cleaver's mistake, or Frogskin's. How many of our number must we lose before we learn not to help you? You're all trouble. First KC, then his aunt and uncle, and now Frogskin. We are a dying order."
He glares, and disappears.


JH throws his hammer. As it travels the lion's head animates and enlarges.


No, LJ whispers, tears springing to her eyes. It was one thing to suspect. Another to see for herself. And what did Ash just say? It was her!? Her own sister was behind the suffering she had experienced while the goddess was trapped inside her body...
LJ drops to her knees overcome by emotions.


Warforged charges the Erinyes


Sorry boys. You know I'd love to stay and fight, but I have other appointments and all. We'll just have to finish this dance later.
Ash blows a kiss to WJ with an evil wink as she planar shifts away.


Poetry slashes at the eyrine with her rapier It is a +5 keen, holy, evil outsider bane weapon. Then, using WFJ's attack as a distraction hits Ash with her death touch as well. However, the eyrine disappears before se connect with her most potent attack. A satisfying stain of blood on the rapier's blade makes her smile, as all was not in vain.

'Arrggghh!', screams WJ as he runs smack into the back bar, his axe splitting the first in two.

As he sits, 'At this rate I'll never earn my name.'

Oops, sorry about your bar.


"Warforged Jack, do you think you could make me a weapon that would be useful against undead," Poetry asks. "Something light and elegant if you would please."


The hammer misses its mark and returns to JH's hand, led by the eagle side of the head. He stands close guard of Lyn while she collapses, afraid of another attack.

I'm so stupid. I sat there with her for hours telling her all about everything and all the time she was just gathering information to use against me.
LJ puts a hand to her mouth to stifle a sob.

Why thank you. I've been working to set that one up for awhile:)

I'm thinking Dimensional Anchor on a critical might be more useful.

Now that the prophecy has been revealed, I cannot make you a weapon without a reading. Lest my power be used by our enemies.


Suddenly, the sky goes dark. It is like an eclipse. Above, hundreds of Viking Kittens fly, along with Wasp.
"You murderers! I should have known you were against us! And now all my friends are dead!" He shouts in fury.
The kittens dive, holding their greataxes high.


LJ looks at this scene in stunned disbelief. Just when she thought it couldn't get any worse. She reflexively threw up a shield of winds.

The kittens (and Wasp)stop. Wasp begins countering them, using the power of the Board.


revealed sooner than expected

Narration - JH's hammer (eagle side) screeches in challenge, as does the eagle bracer on LJ.

The kittens' eagle mounts hear the voice of their ancestral queen in the call.

Attack not, my children!

The eagles attempt to circle and land. The kittens pull the reigns, and the mounts stop.

"Stop that, you idiotic jack! Your foul magic cannot stop us!"


What in the blazes is wrong with you? LJ shouts standing up, anger giving her the strength to move beyond self-doubt for the moment. Are you secretly working for the goddess too? It seems to be something of an epidemic lately. We just found a spy of hers here at the club not two minutes before your arrival.

"I know that!" Wasp shouts. "No doubt there for my benefit! But I found all the evidence I need! Now...DIE!!!"

The barrier falls, and he charges at Lynora, slashing at her with his cleaver.
"MURDERER!!!
