Assault on Esrum Sø

<FakemixRed> A bored voice comes from the intercom "Will the students Elizabeth Winogrodzki, Madeline Maddox, and Daniel Remington please report to the mission briefing room."
<LipstickThespian> Elizabeth shows up at the room after a while of grabbing her things. She's carrying her sword, and a bag she'll probably put on on the ride. Black leggings, plain white shirt, brown jacket. Real casual day for her. She's excited, she hasn't been out in a while and really feels the thirst.
<FakemixRed> "Daniel Vitan please report, Daniel Remington has called in sick."
<Nemi> Mads shows up! This is new and exciting and a welcome change from flailing helplessly about campus. She's got skinny jeans and a tee shirt, the former actually sized for her and the latter still sized for Kat. It's a little long and a little tight but with the grey hoodie over it nobody would know.
<Silvors> Daniel looked around confused before heading towards the mission briefing room. Who the fuck was this Remington dude? He didn't really care anymore as he reached the door, he had on his white shirt, some jeans, and his two pieces of jewelry. He didn't really know what he was heading for but, it was probably going to be interesting. Missions typically were.
<FakemixRed> In the briefing room stands a woman with a white blouse, cold steely eyes, and boots with a knife tucked into them. "Today's mission is paramount to making sure the world doesn't blow up, so listen up." Her voice spreading like a disgusting miasma across the room.
<LipstickThespian> Katlyn looks over to the small girl from the mediterranean and smiles. Walking over and offering her hand. "Hey there, I'm Elizabeth. Most people call me Liz."
<LipstickThespian> Liz*
<Nemi> Mads' eyes get a bit big. Oh. World doesn't blow up. Sure. Okay. That's not unsettling at all. No pressure. She nooods slowly at that.. then manages a weak smile and a taken hand. "Madeline. And um, I guess you can call me Mads. Everybody does." Except Sam.
<LipstickThespian> "Alright," Liz says as she turns back to the woman. World blowing up, well, shit.
<Silvors> The world not blowing up seemed good, I mean the lich didn't need air but, he liked the people here. So, he would stay. Mads was here, that was pretty nice and some other girl who looked like she was from a fantasy novel. Apparently she was named Elizabeth. Interesting.
<FakemixRed> "You will all be going to Denmark, there is an escort there whose assistant will be able to warp you into the enemy fortress. Don't fuck that up and piss him off, his survival makes sure you all don't get swarmed by security." She says as she motions for guards to enter the room, with backpacks for the three of them. Containing rope, flashlights, water botles, beef jerky, and walkie talkies. "You will
<FakemixRed> be cut off from the outside world once you enter enemy territory, and those walkie talkies are easier to mask."
<LipstickThespian> Liz goes about transfering the items into her own stylish leath backpack, which she then goes to strap on. After taking some beef jerky out to munch on as they talk. "A fortress?"
<Nemi> Mads is just kind of staring as she pulls on the backpack of goodies. What. A fortress? What is .. /what/?
<Silvors> Denmark? Was it some kind of viking doomsday cult? Daniel inspected his backpack, rope, flashlight, and walkie talkies. Awesome. "Yeah, they're like castles but better defended." Daniel said to the swordswoman as he looked.
FakemixRed> "The Eye of Infinity has a fortress out in Denmark where they are conducting experiments to create a new anomalous species. It's much more of a mansion however but full of magical defense systems."
yrmKnave (ppm.yhr.512.09|tibbiM#ppm.yhr.512.09|tibbiM) has joined
<Nemi> ".. sooo this is like.. we're walking into Resident Evil One or something?"
<Silvors> "Eye of… Infinity?" Daniel asked, it sounded like a viking doomsday cult. Wasn't there a norse lich god? Daniel smiled at the thought, he was going to the homeland of the lich. Interesting. "Less zombies, probably… maybe."

  • WyrmKnave has quit (Client Quit)
  • WyrmKnave (ppm.yhr.512.09|tibbiM#ppm.yhr.512.09|tibbiM) has joined

<FakemixRed> The woman continues talking, her name is Stacy by the way. "Eye of Infinity, a group of terrorist who use artifacts and anomalous powers for their own gain. I have a warning given by your escort, if the ritual is complete, run immideately."
<LipstickThespian> "What's Evil One?" Liz says as she looks over to Mads, "is that what we're walking into?"
<Silvors> Daniel face palmed at the female fantasy protagonist. "Resident Evil One is a game. It has nothing to do with the magic terrorists, which apparently exist."
<LipstickThespian> "This is a game? Or the real thing? Can we kill them?" Liz has her priorities.
<FakemixRed> "Now unless you have any more questions, head to the airplane, time is of the essence, if the ritual is complete the owner of the mansion will be on par with a Demigod." Stacy says with a stamp of her foot to get the conversation back on track
Nemi> Mads is still bugging out a bit. Kickboxing practice and a little bit of illusions and shapechanging and she's being thrown out to terrorists. They really /are/ trying to get rid of her. ".. um, okay, right, going!"
<LipstickThespian> "We get to keep what we find, right?" Liz says as she makes sure her bag is on, heading to the door without waiting for an answer. She was keeping whatever she found.
<Silvors> Daniel put his pack on, looking around at the two girls. "I'm Daniel… by the way." The lich spoke before sighing. He was going to be like a pokemon trainer and get /all/ the artifacts
<Nemi> "I /know/, Dan, we.. ugh, nevermind. Let's go." Mads hurries out, not liking the prospects of being left behind by the two powerhouses.
<LipstickThespian> Nodding to Daniel, Liz motioned to herself. "I'm Elizabeth," she pointed at Mads, "that's Madeline."
<FakemixRed> The guards lead the trio to the airplane and put on the ankle braces once again. The plane takes off, heading toward Denmark (Tell me when you guys are ready to continue)
<Silvors> "I was talking to Elizabeth, Mads, I already know you."
<Silvors> (Ready whenever)
<LipstickThespian> (ready)
<Nemi> [ red e!}
<FakemixRed> When the plane lands, the group sees a man in a fresh black coat and fedora, he has a smile that looks like the cheshire cat just got out of prison. Looking at the children with eyes that just scream he’s not one to appreciate personal space. From his face, they could probably tell he is in his mid-forties. Besides him is a girl that looks about the same age as a highschooler. She has wavy blonde hai
<FakemixRed> r and blue eyes, wearing a school uniform that consists of a short skirt, and a grey vest over a white button up. It’s torn in various places, and looks grimy. She stands with her head averted from the man next to her, hands clasped tightly together almost as if she was in prayer. What’s more about the odd duo is the man holds a metallic chain attached to the girl’s neck.
<LipstickThespian> Liz spends most of the trip there napping.
<LipstickThespian> Liz says nothing as she walks up to the two of them. She wasn't a fan of the look the two had, and her facial expression showed her disgust with the situation.
<Nemi> Mads looks very firmly and completely without concealment disturbed at that sight.
<Silvors> Daniel looked at the strange duo, a collar, huh? Last time he saw a girl in a collar… never mind. "Are you two here to help us get in?"
<FakemixRed> The man walks toward the group "Hello! I'm Aslaug Innocentius the Fifth, though you may just call me Aslaug, I am your escort today." his voice is crisp and chipper, the girl looks at the three of you with pleading eyes, mouthing the words "Help me."
<LipstickThespian> "She alright?" Liz says as she motions to the girl, trying to get a sense from either of them if. Well. If either of them are natural humans. Tapping her necklace's gem as she looks at the two, a dim ruby red in her eyes.
<FakemixRed> (Roll please~)

<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 2:5-8+5
<Silvors> 4d3-8
<LoveMachine> Silvors: 1:9-8
<FakemixRed> Liz can tell that the girl is definitely not normal, with some magic power within her, though nothing seems wrong with Aslaug. "Oh Hermione? Don't mind her, she's just my cute little assistant, though I have to keep her on chain or else." His voice you can tell is laced with a Danish accent now that he's closer. He yanks the chain forward pulling along Hermione who gives a meek cry
<Nemi> Mads is not incredible at reading people or identifying supernatural beings. In fact, she's .. just agape at what she's seeing. How'd she /get/ in this mess? At least she's not.. Hermione. That's awful. Mads looks vaguely nauseus.
<LipstickThespian> "She been with you long?" Liz says as she walks behind the man and the girl, "how do you know our handler? Just curious how close you two are."
<FakemixRed> "I met her when she was 10, oh the poor thing, if I hadn't put this chain of fate on her then she would be six feet under!" Aslaug laughs while Hermione looks at Elizabeth as if she's been kidnapped which…isn't far from the truth. "I know the principle of Sunnybrook, I offer my help and he accepted."
<Silvors> "Chain of fate? Is that an artifact?" Daniel asked, eyeing the chain. Well, there goes his idea of freezing it after the mission.
<LipstickThespian> "Mind if I hold it?" Liz asks very plainly, "she seems nice. I'll walk with her instead." There was a certain clincal vibe to her voice as she walked behind them. Of course the girl was probably controlled for some other purpose, the mind believes what the eye sees.
<FakemixRed> Aslaug gives a sly wink to Daniel "Magician's secret, now no need for introductions, the school already gave me your files. Though she is bound to my fate, so I cannot let you hold it." He says as he points to the center of the group. Which Hermione nods and starts chanting some unearthly language. "She shall warp us into the mansion now, teleportation is her specialty."
<Silvors> Daniel glared at him, had their files eh? "Let's get going then." Daniel said with a nod, more than ready to get to the /real/ fun.
<LipstickThespian> "You should enroll her at our school," Elizabeth says as she braces herself for. Well, teleportation. Tensing up and crossing her arms under her chest. This magic use, always got her. "She'd like it there better I bet."
<Nemi> Mads bites hard at her lower lip. Teleportation? This.. should be good. Hopefully it's not the 'break you down atom by atom and reassemble a replica of you out of similar atoms at the destination kind. So many metaphysical questions.
<FakemixRed> Hermione's voice is amplified, and becomes a chorus. "Oh my what a ludicrous suggestion, I think she will be much better off as my assistant." and a circle envelops everyone "I guess the distance makes it longer to cast then normal." Aslaug laughs and in that instant, everyone sees nothing but pitch blackness, the cold of space enveloping you. When it ends, the 5 of you stand in what appears to be the
<FakemixRed> entrance of a fancy mansion. 2 doors to the left and right, and in the cardinal directions lay knight statues, each holding a different item.
<LipstickThespian> Liz finally takes a breath as she finds herself dropping out of nothingness. Reaching up to her weapon, gripping the handle as she looked around to make sure there wasn't anything that might be a threat. Seeing them alone in the room, she looks to the two they came with. "Are you coming the whole way, or staying behind?"
<FakemixRed> Aslaug seems used to this as he takes out a magnifying glass to inspect the walls of the room. Hermione is panting and clutching her knees. "So many…people at once, and so far." her voice is quiet and high pitched, definitely young sounding. "We will escort you the enitre way, otherwise the guards will detect you three in the castle."
<FakemixRed> (Hermione also posseses a British accent for clarification)
<LipstickThespian> "Then you'll follow our commands and keep to yourselves." Liz barks at the two of them, turning to Daniel. "You'll be leading our direction Dan. Madeline will be our little detective. Alright Madeline?" She glances over at the girl.
<Nemi> Mads looks like she's about to be ill, arms clutched about her midsection. But she takes some breaths and straightens. Statues holding objects..? What kind of objects? ".. oh god, this IS Resident Evil. Find the Lion Gem to insert into the back of the Scarab Plate so you can open the bathroom." She half-shuts her eyes. ".. detective? Errr. Yes. Yes'm." Authoritative commands like
<Nemi> that are a thing Mads has compulsion to follow.
<Silvors> "Awesome, I love being a meat shield." Daniel said as he looked at the Elizabeth, half smiling at the girl. "So, left or right?" Daniel asked as he walked to the northern statue, if only to look at something.
<FakemixRed> Aslaug jokingly salutes Liz while Hermione frowns. The knights are holding the following items: an oddly shaped dull sword, A golden chalice, a weird ivory wand, and a coin with a pentagram on it
<LipstickThespian> "Always right in a keep, Daniel. So you have better control of your blade when you need to use your weapon." Liz answers as she starts to walk about the room. "Do they alarm their trinkets somehow?" She looks over to Aslaug for an answer.
<Silvors> Daniel looked at the dull sword, were these supposed to be like… golem things? Maybe, you never know with magic terrorists. Daniel glanced over to Aslaug, who seemed to be rather busy so, the lich made his way over to Hermione. "Hey there, any idea on where to go?" He asked before tousling her hair.
<Nemi> So, Mads is, in fact, a rather good student. Does she recognize anything of note about the objects in-hand? Such as the type of sword, any significance to the materials..?
<FakemixRed> (Roll for me Mads, Student Athlete)
<Nemi> ‘4d3-8+2+3
<Nemi> `4d3-8+2+3
<Nemi> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> Nemi: 5:8-8+5
<FakemixRed> "I don’t detect any alarms no. Should be fine to pick them all up, though why they would leave them out is a mystery." Mads should know that the set of items have a connection to something esoteric, the sword also has many grooves that would make it impractical for actual combat.
<FakemixRed> It almost resembles the grooves you would find on a key
<Nemi> "Uh.. The /set/ of them is important, it's tied to the occult or something. Sword looks more like a, uh, sword-breaker. With the grooves. More a defensive thing than for stabbing or anything. Buuuut.. hum. I think these might be keys."
<LipstickThespian> "Take them all, and let's move." Liz said as she motioned for Dan to start walking, "you have your own sword now Madeline. Exciting isn't it?"
<FakemixRed> (Which path do they choose, left or right)
<Silvors> Daniel walked over and grabbed the pentagram and the wand, as quick as he could before sliding the coin in his pocket and the examining the wand. He headed right, expecting the rest to follow him.
<FakemixRed> If they do indeed all go right, they will open the door and get hit with a blast of cold air, the entire room is empty except for a metal door which is covered in a thick layer of ice, in fact all the walls are, and the floor is frosted over.
<Nemi> Mads will snag the weird sword and the chalice. "It's more like a key.. .. keyblade? Oh god. Kingdom Hearts." She hurries to follow Dan. Really, that cold-blast isn't too different from Dan's normal presence.
<Nemi> ".. ohwow was not dressed for this."
<LipstickThespian> "The Kingdom of Hearts? From that book, the Alice one, right?" Liz says to Mads as she walks over and looks at the chilled room.
<FakemixRed> Hermione is shivering badly, being dressed like a skimpy schoolgirl was not good. Though Aslaug pays no mind being nicely covered up. "So cold." Hermione whispers to herself
<Nemi> Mads rests the sword over her shoulder and holds the chalice gingerly in her other hand. That sheer volume of ice and cold is a bit much for her springtime-weight hoodie. Her teeths are chattering in no time.
<LipstickThespian> Liz is not one to forget the plight of those not born in the cold of Eastern Europe winters. She slips her pack off, then her jacket, and tosses it to Hermione. Putting her things back on after.
<Silvors> Daniel sighed, of course it would be cold. It was Denmark, and vikings are always cold. Plus this wasn't that bad, his room was /way/ colder than this before he got the amulet. The lich pulled out the coin and the wand. Maybe they could cast fireball or something. "Any ideas?" The Lich said as he walked into the middle of the room and looked back at the rest of the group.
<FakemixRed> The room is cold enough for everyone's breaths to become visible, and the door slams shut behind them. Hermione yelps and slips the jacket on, giving Liz a gracious smile.
<LipstickThespian> "Check the door," Liz says to Dan, "hopefully we aren't. Well. You know." She bends down and runs her hand along the ground. Even she could feel the chill, but she wanted to see if anything about this room was something other than an air conditioner gone mad.
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5 Attunement
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian, Attunement: 1:4-8+5
<Nemi> Mads breathes into her hands and edges over toward the frozen-over door. A gander reveals anything?
<FakemixRed> Liz detects something wrong in the area, the source of the cold appears to be your good friend Hermione, what a bitch, space magic wasn't enough for her? Dan also seems to be unconciously amplifying it, asshole.
<FakemixRed> Mads' gander doesn't reveal much, other than the fact it seems the frost on the floor is slowly thickening, and the temperature lowering. "Well this is a predicament." Aslaug says without too much worry in his voice
<LipstickThespian> Standing up, Liz considered how much she would enjoy taking either of the freaks down a peg. She spends the next minute considering this idea, smiling about it.
<Nemi> Mads looks at the chalice in-hand, as if it'd tell her anything. At least.. freezing to death isn't too bad a way to go. She figured it'd be by Sam putting a fist through her chest cavity. Once the shivering stops and you get sleepy..
<Silvors> Daniel looks at the objects. Pentagrams were like… hell stuff right? Hell was supposed to be hot. Daniel pointed the coin at the frozen door, "Any ideas about… how to do this?"
<FakemixRed> "I don't think that pentacle will do much for us here, does no one possess fire abilities, what about you Miss Elizabeth?"
<FakemixRed> Aslaug says as he moves to inspect the door, yanking Hermione with him
<LipstickThespian> Liz snaps out of it, blinking her eyes. "Oh, huh? Oh ya. Sure. Ya." She spreads her legs a bit and does a few quick motions of her fingers. Reaching up to pull her sword out, as red tendrils run down her forearm and start to wrap around the blade. She hadn't used palic in a while, forgot it was in her arsenal even. As the tendrils ran up the sword it started to, well, catch
<LipstickThespian> fire.
<Silvors> You would think, in a frozen room, the first thing you would do is use your fire magic. Of course, when Elizabeth finally used hers, Daniel looked at her like she was a fool for not using it sooner.
<FakemixRed> (Liz roll Palic for me)
<Nemi> Mads just watches sullenly, hugging her arms to herself and shivering.
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 6:9-8+5
<FakemixRed> The flame burns strongly on the sword, it's prescensce melts some of the ice around her, giving +3 to ice destruction, nice!
<LipstickThespian> Liz took a few steps towards the frozen door, "you all act like you've never been in the cold!" She laughed, a dry one, as she looked back to the group behind her. "Let's see about this," she says as she takes a stance, feeling weird about hitting her nice sword against a metal door. But, well, ya. She swung it forward, the flames trailing with it as she struck the ice covered
<LipstickThespian> door with her sword.

<Nemi> "I-I'm from S-soCal," Mads chatters out. No, she really hasn't been in the cold.
<Silvors> Daniel looks at her confused, clearly unaffected by the cold as she swung against the ice-coated door. "I'm fine." He grumbled.
<FakemixRed> Liz's blade smashes through the iced door cleanly, and melting the rest off, clearing it to be opened, the only problem is that there is no key in sight, the lock does however have an oddly large opening, for some big key
<Nemi> Mads shuffles forward and attempts to shove the sword into the opening.
<LipstickThespian> Liz steps back to let Mads by, keeping the sword out just a while longer for the warmth. Walking over to Hermione to hold it near her, really.
<FakemixRed> The sword slides in cleanly, convenient. With a turn, something clicks into place letting open the door, as well as the entrance the group came through swinging open. "Can you spare a moment, I need your help." Hermione says with a whisper to Liz, Aslaug not paying to much mind as he looks pleased they won't freeze to death. "Good hustle team!" he says smacking Mads on the back with a laugh, his hands
<FakemixRed> are cold and wrinkly.
<Nemi> Mads stumbles and nearly faceplants at the hearty slap to the back. Standing on ice and being small are not the greatest things in the world. "Th-thanks f-f-f-for the f-f-fire."
<LipstickThespian> Liz nods her head to Hermione as she slides her sword back into the sheath, looking over to Mads as she answered "thanks for the key. Go check the next room."
<Nemi> Mads hurries into the next room. Does she still have the weird key sword or is it stuck in the door?
<Silvors> Daniel walks with Mads to the next room.
<Nemi> Mads slaps at her arms and shivers in attempts to further warm up. What a horrible place, this Denmark.
<FakemixRed> The next room is a large hallway, with noxious gas being sprayed downwards, it's green and disgusting. Everyone but for some reason Daniel feels nauseous. (The key comes out if you take it with you.) "I want to escape, to be free. Will you…help?" Hermione says slipping the jacket back to Liz
<FakemixRed> Daniel actually feels invigorated in face of the noxious gas, perhaps something he ate? (Liz and Mads roll attunement/perception)
<LipstickThespian> Liz takes the jacket back from the girl, smiling at her. "Convince me you're worth it," she says as she follows the group to stand by the entrance to the room.
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 6:9-8+5
<Nemi> Mads is all too happy taking the key-sword-thing if the doors remain open. Never know when it'll be necessary. Seems awkward and needlessly confusing. So, Resident Evil. And now on top of being freezing she's feeling horrendously ill.
<Nemi> 4d3-8+3 eh no real fancy bonuses here
<LoveMachine> Nemi, eh no real fancy bonuses here: 5:10-8+3
<FakemixRed> Liz feels something resonating within Dan's possession, and Mad's sees a small golden glow in Dan's pocket, very faint.
<FakemixRed> Hermione frowns "What do you mean worth it." Aslaug stokes his chin "This is quite a disgusting shower isn't it?" he says not too worried.
<LipstickThespian> Liz snaps her fingers and points over to Dan, "what did you have again Dan?" She ignores the girl for now. They need to keep moving.
<Nemi> "Hey— hey um.. oh god one second.. something's glowing in Dan's pocket.. 'scuse me.." And for the second time in as many days, Mads turns to one side and promptly throws up. Mostly just bile.
<LipstickThespian> "Oh shit, Hermione can you go over there and, like hold her hair?" Liz is more disgusted by the puke than the noxious gas.
<Silvors> Daniel showed her the wand and the pentacle, looking at them confused. "The wand and this star coin." He said looking at them and showing the two objects to the rest of the party
<FakemixRed> Hermione nods and tries her best to not let Mads hair get pukey. The pentacle is currently glowing while in Daniel's hand.
<Silvors> "The star is glowing guys, what's that mean? And what's up with the green fog?" Daniel said, trying to wave the noxious gas away/
<Nemi> ".. who /built/ this place? /god/." Mads leans on the sword-key, chalice held to one side. Both hands are firmly in the sleeves of her hoodie, for what it's worth.
<FakemixRed> "The Eye built this place to be a defensive fortress." Aslaug helpfully comments. The gas is thick and viscous as Dan tries waving it away
<LipstickThespian> "Some fucked up interior decorators." Liz comments to them as she looks down the room, "is there a place to put the coin? Like the coin slot on a vending machine or something?"
<Silvors> "One sec, I'll check." Daniel said before looking around the hall, trying to find some coin-shaped slot.

<FakemixRed> The only coin shaped slot existing in this hallway of noxious gas is in your hearts…hands really. "I think you just hold it and then run through." Hermione says
<LipstickThespian> "Then how the fuck are you two getting through?" Liz says as she looks to the chained couple. "Unless he can set the chain down, and everything will be fine."
<Nemi> ".. uuuarg."
<Nemi> So, this is Mads' /actual/ worst day. Because freezing and puking simultaneously are pretty terrible and all the psychological problems were at night.
<Nemi> ".. so.. you're not sick from it but you're also undead so I don't know if that means anything but the token /is/ glowing so it probably does something and.. guuurkg."
<FakemixRed> "Binding two fates together makes you quite sturdy, we should be fine as long as we're quick." Aslaug says matter of factly, Hermione holds a look of doubt.
<Silvors> Daniel hands the coin to Hermione, a bit worried for the girl before nodding towards Mads. "Mads is right, I can't breath anyways so, I'll be fine without it." To be honest, the lich didn't puke either so the gas was less of an issue.
<LipstickThespian> "You should just, you know, go on. I'll make sure she gets across after you and doesn't run away." Liz says. "Dan. You first."
<FakemixRed> Hermione hands off the coin to Aslaug "Alright, I can extend the chain's length, me and Daniel shall move forward!" He says as the metal chain extends, as he takes a run toward the end of the hall
<LipstickThespian> "What the fuck," Liz is not entirely okay with this as she considers if the chain is strong enough to stop her blade. She needed Dan to freeze it first, shit.
<Nemi> Mads wipes her mouth with a sleeve and forces herself to stand properly, using the key-sword kind of like a walking stick. ".. urg. What."
<Silvors> Daniel thought for a moment. "I'll get the coin and bring it back for you guys." He said before speaking in a voice quiet enough for the now distant Aslaug to not hear, "And we will save you, Hermione." He added before running after the old man.
<FakemixRed> Daniel, for some reason the gas still seems to affect your lich body once you get into the noxious gas, however the lich body makes you resistant. (Roll Brawn+Lich) "I was going to warp the coin back." Hermione says as Daniel leaves
<LipstickThespian> "What a white knight," Liz mentioned loud enough for the boy to hear as he ran off.

<FakemixRed> The gas feels just awful, but Dan is just clear of the gas right before he starts feeling injured. Aslaug is waiting at the locked door, the chain being stretched through the hall. "Hello, nice of you to join me."

<LipstickThespian> "…Can you just bring us over there?" Liz looks at her
<Silvors> Daniel offers the coin to one of the girls. "Yeah, but I didn't get to reply. I wasn't sure if you were going to or not."
<FakemixRed> Hermione shakes her head. "Currently Aslaug is shrouding our prescence, but if I warp under my own power, then it'll lead the enemy to us. But…could I tell you something while he isn't here?" She says fidgeting her fingers, wiping some of the grime off her skirt
<Silvors> Daniel nods. "Of course."
<LipstickThespian> "Keep it quick," Liz passes the coin off to Mads so she can make the run.

<FakemixRed> The door has the same lock as the previous one, and is easily opened with the sword.
<LipstickThespian> "What happens after the window?" Liz asks as she waits for the coin to come back.
<FakemixRed> Hermione focuses and tries to warp the coin toward the group "Well I catch up and die too. It should give me 2 minutes, I looked over his notes myself."

<Silvors> "Did his notes say anything about… breaking the chain?" Daniel asked, looking over at Elizabeth.
<LipstickThespian> "We can break the chain, but will it free you?" Liz asks the girl as she holds her hand out from the coin. "I won't free you just to see you dead."
<FakemixRed> The coin appears in her hand, and she hands it to Elizabeth. "To break it would require very powerful magic, something to break souls or something akin, though a broken chain still puts me on a time limit."
<FakemixRed> "The lake behind the mansion has healing properties, if I warp to there while you engage the enemy, I will live."
<LipstickThespian> "As long as we have a drink after," Liz says with a smile as she turns and runs through the fog, so Aslaug doesn't think they're plotting by waiting too long.
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+4+3
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 6:7-8+4+3
<Silvors> "So… magic lake water huh? Chains, demigods… this is such a weird mansion."
<FakemixRed> Liz isn't nearly as fortunate, the gas' detrimental properties catches up to her dealing 1 HP damage. Hermione smiles a bit "A drink, should be fun."
<Silvors> "So, once you're free, are you going to go to Sunnybrook with us?"
<LipstickThespian> Stopping on the otherside of the fog, she bends over and holds her knees as she coughs and spits out some disgust.
<FakemixRed> "Finally having a reason to wear a school girl outfit would be certainly a boon, now shall we?" Hermione says offering Dan a hand to traverse the hallway

<LoveMachine> Silvors: 9:8-8+2+5+2
<FakemixRed> The two of them get through the gas without issue, proceeding to the next room is another door on the opposite side, and a large red circle filled with runes in the middle "This is your cue Hermione, beam me up Scotty as the kids say." Aslaug gives Daniel a flirtatious wink at that
<LipstickThespian> "What?" Liz turns to look at them, "what are you doing?"

  • SavanahHolland has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)

<Silvors> Daniel looked at Aslaug confused. "What are you talking about?" He asked with a furrowed brow.

<FakemixRed> "Star trek, isn't it all the rage with you kids?" Aslaug says as Hermione cringes
<LipstickThespian> "I love lightsabers!" Liz says with a smile, she loved that movie!
<Silvors> "I…uh… what?" Daniel said, blinking and looking around at the other members of their group completely confused. Of course he's head the term before, Star Trek was like the lamer version of Star Wars. How did that have anything to do with their current situation?
<Nemi> Mads has been awfully quiet the last bit. But puking takes a lot out of you. She gives a bleary look toward Aslaug, then to Daniel, at whihc point she whispers, 'he totes coming on to you.'
<FakemixRed> "Elizabeth, that's Star Wars not Star Trek." she whispers while Aslaug just shakes his heads "I thought I was able to keep up with what's hip."
<LipstickThespian> "Those aren't the same?" Liz says as she looks to the girl.
<Silvors> Daniel just kept his confused look before pointing at the large red, rune-filled circle in the room. "Can we deal with that, now?" Daniel asked, he just wanted to end this weird, cringy conversation.
<FakemixRed> "Star Trek is about space exploration, Star Wars is about jedis." Hermione informs. Aslaug nods "Yes, this is a teleportation circle, simple for Hermione to activate if you're all ready."
<LipstickThespian> "The Jedis are in space exploring. I don't see the difference." Liz says as she walks to the circle and, reaches down to check it. This isn't just some ritual circle to sacrifice them to a demigod, is it?
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+7 (teachings plus overdrive)
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian, (teachings plus overdrive): 8:9-8+7
<Nemi> Mads stares at the circle. She still feels sick and freezing and everything is awful and there's weird mystic stuff she doesn't recognize at all. How absolutely wonderfully useless.
<FakemixRed> The circle is connected to another of it's kind within the mansion, and certifiably not a ritual to sacrifice everyone to a Demigod.
<Silvors> Oh, that weird quote had something to do with the circle. "Cool, let's go." Daniel said as he walked into the circle.
<LipstickThespian> Kat steps onto the circle and looks over to Mads, "don't worry Madeline. I swear it's safe to use."
<LipstickThespian> Liz*
<Nemi> ".. okay, sure." Mads steps onto it too.
<FakemixRed> The two escorts step onto the circle, and once everyone's ready, Hermione touches the circle with a finger tip, enveloping them all in the same cold darkness they felt when they first warped to the mansion. They are greeted with metal doors to the front and back of them, once again having the same lock as last time. Otherwise the room just has a shitty beige paint over it
<Silvors> "So, Geralt, which way are we going?" Daniel asked, looking over at Elizabeth for directions.
<LipstickThespian> "What? My name is Elizabeth," she says as she points to the right door again.
<Nemi> ".. oh god was not ready for that." Mads is left all-ashiver. The doors have locks to fit Mads' sword-key thing? If so, she'll follow Liz's direction and try the rightmost door!
<FakemixRed> (There is no door to the right, it's front or back….)

<FakemixRed> The door is opened with the sword once again, and in the next room is a large amount of odd vaguely humanoid rock monsters, 5 of them standing in a circle facing outward. There's a door behind them though it needs a different key for once.
<Nemi> The humanoid stone beings, are they.. doing anything? Just standing around, blowing bubbles, talking about sports?
<Silvors> "So, are you guys ready to fight five rock monsters? Because this is totally a fight room." Daniel spoke before looking behind them. "Maybe we should check the other option."
<FakemixRed> The stone beings, which we'll call golems for now, have various symbols on them. (Mads, roll me student athlete and Liz roll the teachings)
<FakemixRed> golems*
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5 Teachings
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian, Teachings: 5:8-8+5
<LipstickThespian> Liz starts to walk into the room, pulling her sword as she looks back to Dan. "Ya, how do you know that?"
<Nemi> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> Nemi: 5:8-8+5
<Silvors> "Because, there's rock monsters. Rock monsters are never friends. This isn't the Never-Ending Story." Daniel said as he followed her in.
<FakemixRed> Liz and Mads both know that these beings are magical constructs that are able to be commanded by the runes engraved in them, these ones have simple guarding commands, though they should react to their master's prescence.
<LipstickThespian> "They could just be puzzle pieces," Liz says with a laugh. "Besides they're just simple guards I think. They don't look smart. Like you, rock heads."
<FakemixRed> "I believe they are commanded by Pagus, who owns this mansion." Aslaug says
<Nemi> "Yeah they're um, just golems. You carve them into whatever command. They're just guarding.. whatever's inside that circle, maybe?"
<LipstickThespian> "What's inside the circle?" Liz says as she starts to get close to one of the golems, sword up.
<FakemixRed> No one can see what's inside the circle, you'd need to move one to get it out of the way.
<LipstickThespian> "Hey old man," Liz says as she looks over to him and lowers the sword. "Help Dan move one. You're strong, right?"
<FakemixRed> "I believe either trying to give them a new command may be more efficient, or perhaps faking that we're it's master. Golems are like robots after all."
<Silvors> Daniel walks in and looks at Elizabeth. Of course, make the tireless undead do all the work… alright he wasn't saying it was a bad plan. Just that he was too lazy to do it. "Okay, so, Mads, you told me in the Common Room you could Shapeshift. Do that." Daniel /really/ didn't want to push the golems.
<LipstickThespian> "Faking like we're their mas- Wait, a shapeshifter?"
<Nemi> "Uh.. Yeah, hi. It's a thing. I'd need a photo of the guy or to see him myself." Mads fidgets then and there. She's still a bit a-shiver and now isn't entirely enthused at the idea of actually using her powers.
<Nemi> ".. like, is there a photo or video or really really really good painting or something?"
<LipstickThespian> Katlyn nods her head and looks around, it's a mansion right? Paintings should be around.
<FakemixRed> Aslaug beams "I can draw you a picture! Wait a moment." he digs out a notebook and starts sketching, and then hands it to Mads, it looks like pure garbage, a kindergartner would feel ashamed if he turned this in. "If I described him to you, could you maybe shift close enough?" Hermione says
<LipstickThespian> "There was another door wasn't there?" Liz says as she looks back, "maybe in there."
<LipstickThespian> Liz* Liz* Liz* Liz* Liz* (copy and paste where needed)
<Nemi> Mads shakes her head. "That's not how it works. I need to /see/ him and.. that's.. not quite good enough, sir." Mads shuffles where she is. ".. let's try the other door." Almost a chance to be useful! Almost.
<Nemi> ".. or.. actually, I could /try/ based on that like.. Give me a close description if you can?"
<FakemixRed> Aslaug pouts at his lack of usefulness. "He's about 6 foot 1, spiky blonde hair, and jawline sharp enough to cut a diamond. He's very lanky, constantly wearing gold, he looks quite pimp like."
<Nemi> ".. so.. so he's an anime pimp."
<FakemixRed> Hermione looks at Mads oddly. "What is….ani-me?"
<Nemi> Mads grimaces. ".. all the days to wear skinny jeans.. okay. Please look away? And I'll tell you when you're older."
<LipstickThespian> "What's Annie May's Pimp doing here?"
<FakemixRed> Hermione turns away, leaning toward Daniel "Is..ani-me porn?"
<FakemixRed> (roll snapshot)
<Silvors> Frost appeared on Daniel's cheek at that question. "No! Yes? Some of it? It's like cartoons… some of them aren't kid cartoons though." Daniel said, stammering a bit at the rather sudden and direct question.
<Nemi> Mads' shapechanging is only really physical, so, this is probably going to be profoundly uncomfortable. Thus the request that others turn away. So she can remove her jeans. In the cold. Yes. Chalice and sword-key are placed on the ground and Mads tries and makes it happen.
<Nemi> 4d3-8+4
<LoveMachine> Nemi: 6:10-8+4
<LipstickThespian> Liz watches the entire thing out of curiosity. Hadn't seen a shapeshifter yet, wanted to watch this one.
<FakemixRed> Mads transforms close enough to the anime pimp, which makes the golems turn their "faces" towards ger
<FakemixRed> her
<Nemi> There's no real special effects. More like someone did some photoshop trickery and cut Mads out and pasted in Pagus.. in Mads' clothes. It's a bit of a strength and this Pagus has no pants, but it's good enough for the golems. "Servants. Disperse to the walls and stand by." Gotta sound properly … properly what Mads expects Pagus to sound like from the description.
<Nemi> [ stretch* rather
<Silvors> "Are you almost done?" Daniel asked, looking as far in the opposite direction of Mads as he could.
<FakemixRed> They don't react. "I think you need to seem more dramatic, he was quite loud when we briefly met him."
<FakemixRed> Hermione says.
<Nemi> ".. oh, okay." The false Pagus clears his throat. "Miiiiiniiiiooons! Begone from my sight, for I, the great and mighty PAGUS, tire of your presence! Bwuauaaaa!"
<LipstickThespian> Liz has to laugh a little, but covers her mouth to try and hide it from Madsagus
<FakemixRed> The golems obey and move away to different corners of the room, the fifth walking continously into one of them since there aren't enough corners. In where they stood is a small spike that is the key to the next room
<Silvors> "Are you done yet?" Daniel said, sitting and waiting for her to give him permission to turn back around.
<Nemi> The false Pagus crouches to retrieve the Chalice and Sword.. and Pants, and stride valiantly forward to claim the spike. Time to place that in the door and strut that butt without accidentally moving too much and tearing Mads' clothes apart. "Next roooom! Buwaaa!"
<Silvors> Daniel continues staring at the wall, unsure if he can turn around.
<LipstickThespian> "You can change back, our lord." Liz says as she walks, giggling the whole way behind pantsless Madsagus.
<FakemixRed> Aslaug turns around "Well done, I should have you as an apprentice." he says in a lecherous voice. Hermione turns around as well, silent, looking down at her feet.
<Silvors> Daniel's eyes have no left the wall, still not being told he can turn.
<FakemixRed> The next room has a large pool, with a walkway surrounding the square room leading to the door which requires a special key. (Roll perception everybody)
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+3
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 5:10-8+3
<Nemi> Mads shifts back and, face bright red and burning near hard enough to melt some of the ice in the earlier chambers, redons her pants and sneakers.

<LoveMachine> Nemi: 1:6-8+3
<Silvors> "Can I turn around now?"
<Nemi> ".. no! Just—" she hops into the trousers and tugs them on proper. ".. okay fine."
<Silvors> Daniel hesitant turns around and walks into the next room.
<Silvors> 4d3-8+3+4
<LoveMachine> Silvors: 8:9-8+3+4
<Nemi> Mads is far too embarassed and uncomfortable to use her special eyes.
<FakemixRed> Mads doesn't notice anything, though Liz and Dan see something shining at the bottom of the large pool, Dan especially notices some odd rings and circles on the sides of the pool, they're faint as if they were hidden on purpose
<Silvors> "Hmmm." Daniel says as he looks down into the pond. "Theres some stuff on the sides and something shiny at the bottom… I bet it's trapped."
<Nemi> ".. ugh I'm gonna need a new shirt and underwear after this why did I not get a like sneaking suit or something.."
<LipstickThespian> Liz nodded her head and looked down to try and catch sight of the trap, maybe she would recognize it?
<FakemixRed> (Roll me teachings~)
<Silvors> "Hey Liz, If I freeze this whole pool can you melt us a path down?" Daniel asked as he walked to the edge of the pool.
<Nemi> ".. ugh I'm gonna need a new shirt and underwear after this why did I not get a like sneaking suit or something.."
<LipstickThespian> Liz nodded her head and looked down to try and catch sight of the trap, maybe she would recognize it?
<FakemixRed> (Roll me teachings~)
<Silvors> "Hey Liz, If I freeze this whole pool can you melt us a path down?" Daniel asked as he walked to the edge of the pool.
<LipstickThespian> 4d3-8+5
<LoveMachine> LipstickThespian: 5:8-8+5
<LipstickThespian> "What? Maybe?"
<FakemixRed> All Liz knows is that the traps are water based spells, and affect velocity, but that's it
<LipstickThespian> "Can't Hermione teleport small things like that?"
<Nemi> "Daaaan, can't you just like, walk on the bottom since you can't drown or anything?"
<Silvors> Daniel glares at the girl… she had a point. "What if they force me to stay down there forever?"
<LipstickThespian> Liz stands up and stretches, "why would they have velocity spells on the pool?"
<Silvors> "To force you to stay underwater."
<FakemixRed> Hermione blushes "Everytime I teleport something, I risk signaling our prescence, so it should be a last resort." "I can't keep everything hidden." Aslaug says
<LipstickThespian> "Well you don't drown, so."
<Nemi> "You're undead. Can't you like, if you ARE trapped do some funky magic wizard stuff?"

<FakemixRed> Coming from left field, one of the magic circles roar to life and a high speed current slams full force into Daniel, pinning him against the other side of the pool, sadly his undead body isn't the strongest body. 1 HP damage
<Nemi> "Oh wow it's like a jacuzzi on /hyper/."

<FakemixRed> Hermione grimaces while Aslaug laughs "I want one of these at my place!"
<Silvors> Daniel slams into the far wall, opening his mouth for air to be released as water filled it. He blinked a couple times and looked up at the group.
<LipstickThespian> "Holy fuck, you see that kick the shit out of him?" Liz says with a grimace as she watches him slam into the wall.

<LipstickThespian> Liz, does her part, and cheers him on.
<LipstickThespian> (count it as a helping hand do it)
<FakemixRed> Just barely he gets out of the rushing current, and continues descending to the pool, he's at half depth which is about 9 ft when another current activates, much stronger this time, roll once again +1 from soul infusion (Sadly it doesn't count)
<Silvors> 4d3-8+2+1
<LoveMachine> Silvors: 3:8-8+2+1
<FakemixRed> Daniel really should give up on his swimming career as the raging water makes him ragdoll to the west side of the pool, taking 2 HP damage
<Nemi> Mads ponders a moment, looks at the chalice in her hand (or more properly, being gripped again by the too-long and vomit-spattered sleeve of her hoodie. She walks over to the poolside and attempts to dip the chalice in.
<FakemixRed> the water in the chalice starts glowing, though it doesn't do anything too obvious, for now.
<Nemi> Mads stares at it, looks at the others and nods her chin toward the chalice. "Hey uh. I think .. actually I have no idea what this means. Drink it, maybe?"
<Nemi> Mads is still a little bit resigned to 'well we're all doomed and or I'm going to freeze to death or die of embarassment," so she drinks the glowy water.
<Silvors> Daniel looks up at them, opens his mouth, and then glares at the girl, managing to hear her words distorted, though they were a little distorted.
<LipstickThespian> "What? Why are you drinking that?" Liz says as she looks at her.
<FakemixRed> The water tastes absolutely terrible, and it burns in her throat, take 1 HP damage. However if Mads was at all a bit altered from her shapeshifting this would dispel it
<Nemi> "I don't know, that's what chalices are f— GLAAAAGH."
<Silvors> Daniel attempts to swim further down.

<Nemi> Mads continues throat grabbing, having dropped the keyblade and the spike in the process.. but that weird and disorienting little adventure gives her an idea. Refill the chalice, try not to cough up blood or anything.. and pour the glowy water into the pool again?
<FakemixRed> Dan sure is lucky he doesn't need to breathe because he would have started drowning right about now. The glowy water drips down the side of the pool, and when it contacts the place where the first current was, it fades and the water stops moving on that side, though Daniel is still pinned

<FakemixRed> Dan just cannot channel his inner dolphin today, for a brief moment it seems he can fight the current before he is pushed back.
<Nemi> Ah -ha!- So /that's/ how it works. Mads refills it again, regrets drinking it at all ow, and pours some more in, aiming for what seems to be the origin point of the second current.
<FakemixRed> Thankfully Mads is correct in the properties of the Chalice, which dispels the second current, Dan is now free to be a fish in the pool
<Silvors> (I assume he's at the bottom now?)
<FakemixRed> (Yep, he's free to swim wherever)
<Silvors> Daniel goes to get the shiny thing.
<FakemixRed> it's a little urchin like thing, should fit nicely on the metal door. "Good job!" Aslaug cries while Hermione breathes a sigh of relief "Are you ok?"
<Silvors> Daniel swims to the surface and places the urchin on the edge before leaning over and releasing all the water he drank into the pool.
<Nemi> "Er.. sorry I didn't figure it out sooner!"
<Silvors> "I'm never swimming again." Daniel said as the last bit of water left him. "Never again."
<Nemi> ".. I actually rather miss swimming but not in a doom fortress." Wasting little time, she tucks the chalice, spike and sword under an arm, grabs the urchin, and hurries over to the door it fits in. "Say when you're good for me to open it!"
<Silvors> "I'm ready whenever, just, you know, going to have to get a stomach pump soon." Daniel growled as he stood up and walked towards Mads.
<Nemi> Mads looks back to Aslaug and Hermione, then to the grumbly Daniel, and goes to put the urchin in the door. Bwoink.
<FakemixRed> The door clinks open, and in the next room is a red magic circle like on the first floor, "Are you three ready for the next one?" Aslaug says a bit seriously, only a bit
<Nemi> "Um. About as much as can be."
<Silvors> "Let's go. I'm gonna punch this sadistic asshole in the face." Daniel said, seeming a bit more cheerful as he walked into the circle.
<Nemi> Mads hurries to follow!
<FakemixRed> Hermione taps the circle, hello darkness my old friend, and you all reappear in a place that is like a living room, with couches and a platter of cheese and crackers laid out, with a bottle of fancy wine. there's hallways of guest rooms full of rich bitch toiletries, and a kitcen chock full of things like caviar, lobster, raw filot mignon, truffle oil. Hermione gasps at all this luxury
<Silvors> Daniel walked over to the bottle of wine and turned it into an ice-statue of a bottle of wine. He proceeded to turn ALL the luxury food into ice versions of themselves.
<FakemixRed> Hermione feels herself tearing up a bit "I was hungry….."
<Nemi> Mads boggles. If she didn't feel so sick she'd be tempted. But seriously, this kitchen is wild. This whole /living space/ is wild. ".. bouegie assholes. Uh… hm." Mads looks all around. Any other exits beyond the rows and rows of guest rooms? She imagines this is where the manor's actual guests come to stay.
<FakemixRed> There's a study full of reference books and a teleporter circle whenever you're ready, though Hermione and Aslaug look hungrily at the stockpile of luxury foods
<Silvors> Daniel decided to skip a few foods and drinks for the rest of the party to snack up.
<Nemi> ".. anyway um, I have like.. no appetite at all. Can we just move on?"
<FakemixRed> Hermione decides that the best course of action is to shove as much food as she can into her vest, while Aslaug goes into the guest bathrooms and raids the nice shampoos and soaps. Hermione gives Dan a look, "A word?"
<Silvors> "Sure, follow me." Daniel said before motioning for Hermione to follow him into the study.
<Silvors> "Sure, follow me." Daniel said before motioning for Hermione to follow him into the study.
<Nemi> Mads throws up her hands in exasperation before just going off to one of the nice bathrooms to clean up after her vomitastic and frostbite-inducing earlier adventures.
<FakemixRed> Luckily Aslaug had extended the chain to loot as much as possible, she takes a bite of gouda as she motions for Mads to follow as well, her metal chain jangling as they walked

<Silvors> Once Daniel gets in there, he begins looking for any books on undeath, potions, and magic artifacts. "What did you want to talk about?" The lich asked as he searched through the books.
<FakemixRed> and all the rooms have those amazing japanese toilets that are basically cyborgs
<FakemixRed> All the books are things like science and normal people subjects. "Do you think you can kill Aslaug or break this chain?"
<Nemi> Mads would loot but can't help but think that it'd be really in bad taste. You're too nice, Mads. So after getting some of the gross stuff off she's over to Hermione. She shrugs helplessly. ".. I'm about as useful as a potato right now so I have no idea. I probably can't." Yes, Mads. You're useless. Who knew.
<Silvors> "I can kill him." Daniel said before looking over at her. "But, can you teleport us to Pagus, teleport to the pond, and teleport back to us fast enough if I kill him here?" Daniel says, growling at the book collection.
<FakemixRed> "I'll have 1 minute of time before I die from the chain being broken, but I can get that done in 30 seconds."
<Nemi> Mdas just looks hopelessly lost. "Wait— die? Can't.. isn't there something that you can.."
<Silvors> Daniel takes a deep breath, he's never killed a man before… unless you count stopping his brother from becoming a lich. "I'll kill him, you teleport there and back… Are you sure you'll live?"
<Nemi> Mads rubs at her face. Aslaug was unlikeable and the whole thing with Hermione was disturbing by being accessory to murder was profoundly discomfiting. She just excuses herself and goes to sit by the next portal circle.
<FakemixRed> Hermione bites her lip and clenches her fist "Even if I don't, I would rather die than be chained like this any longer."
<Silvors> Daniel pulled the chair to the study over and sat in it. "I've never killed someone before…" He spoke, thinking for a moment. Was he alright? Taking a person's life? "If you can't, then we'll be trapped here, Hermione."
<FakemixRed> "Well once you defeat Pagus then the defenses go down, since he's controlling most of it all."

  • Roosevelt has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)

<Nemi> And then they have to defeat the would-be.. Magician? What? So a wizard guy with an already horrible house. They have to defeat him, somehow. Mads feels so out of her depth she's actually somewhere in the mesosphere.
<FakemixRed> Hermione turns to Mads "I believe, you'll be the best shot at distracting everyone, because with an opening like that we could get this done in 15 seconds."
<Silvors> Daniel nodded, she had a point. "Here's what we'll do. We'll deal with Pagus, kill Ass-Log, and then teleport to the river." Daniel said after a moment of thought.
<Silvors> "Err, pond."
<Nemi> "Distract how? Like.. what are we even walking into? I don't know /anything/ about /anything/!"
<FakemixRed> "It's a lake, actually this place is named after the lake. And you just need to, give a good performance." Hermione says to Mads "We're trying to free me from an eternal fate with him."
<Nemi> "A performance of like.. what?" Mads has /no idea/ what's happening.
<Silvors> Daniel nods. "We'll deal with Aslaug after Pagus… Immediately after."
<FakemixRed> "A performance when we go fight Pagus, he's showy, and so you can outshow him."
<Nemi> "Uh, really good? Like, even not changing."
<FakemixRed> "Act really cheesy and challenge him in something, it should work. Aslaug should be back from getting stuff right about now, places everyone."
<Silvors> Daniel goes to the circle and sits to wait for Aslaug.
<Nemi> ".. okay. I'll challenge him to a rap battle to the death."
<FakemixRed> Hermione blinks "I have no idea what that is, but for some reason I trust you." and at that Aslaug arrives "Whew that was the best bathroom break i've ever had, onwards?"
<Silvors> "Aye, let's go." Daniel said, smiling at Aslaug.
<FakemixRed> And with that, the three of them are off to the final battle (someone control Liz for this) and Hermione warps them, landing them in a hallway with an open door. There's a large room with a desk and a grand bookshelf behind it full of grimoires, and a red teleport circle in the middle. The office has glass doors to a balcony where the anime pimp man sits, shaking a glass of wine while eating a cracker,
<FakemixRed> from a cafe table. It overlooks the lake which is pristine and clean…unnaturally so (Everyone roll precep, someone roll for Liz)

<FakemixRed> The water is unnaturally clear and clean, and Liz can sense something supernatural from the water, Dan notices something mana like in that direction, and a shit ton of it. "Hello mongrels, you get to die at the glorious prescence of PAGUS!"
<Nemi> Mads draws herself up to her full unimpressive height. "You call that a monologue? I've seen better inside a /fortune cookie!/ The only thing you'll ascend to is demigod of BEING A TOTAL SCRUB."
<Nemi> "C'mon, son! Step it up! You wanna play at being some anime pimp then at least have the stones to back it up!"
<FakemixRed> This causes an angry eyebrow twitch from Pagus "I am becoming a true Magician, an existence beyond your puny mind mongrel." his wine glass is shaking in his hand
<Nemi> "And an existence beyond having a good comeback too, apparently. C'mon man, who are you? Donald Trump in a frilly shirt?"
<Nemi> Well, she /is/ being distracting. Damn.
<FakemixRed> Aslaug cringes a bit at that while Hermione stands confused. "Woah woah I think that went a bit too far there." Pagus says
<Nemi> "For serious." Mads folds her arms and steps onto the balcony, peering out over the lake. Having clearly established her dominance, impetuous style and unfailing swagger— holy shit how am I actually doing this jesus christ—, Mads snaps her look back to Pagus. Any time, friends.

She'll try to shift back to native and holds her arms up over her face, figuring the golems would just be aiming to finish the
<Nemi> job. … and instead gets a drink from a creepy fedora man. Well, she's still shifting back. Getting Pagus' ENTIRE wrath was not part of the plan.

<Nemi> Something in the environs.. the ritual maybe? Could she disrupt elements for that?
<FakemixRed> Oddly, none of the ritual elements are in this room other than the red teleporting circle….

<Nemi> ".. oh, oh fuck, that— no that does NOT look good I fucking /told you/ oh Jesus oh Jesus Christ.."
<Silvors> Daniel couldn't speak, still writhing in too much pain. "What's -GRAH- Happening?" He asked, his whole body tensing up.

  • Civkumeoy is now known as Akumeoy

<Nemi> Mads looks around. Pagus is on his last legs. Are there any objects she could use as an improvised weapon? A chair leg after the GOLEM BATTLE, anything like that? Because /fuck/ /that/ /guy/. So many people are /dying/ because of this and Mads can't handle it.
<FakemixRed> There's a chair by his desk, one of those that spins and has wheels, so much fun. Also the multitude of grimoires on his shelf. Hermione's screams are echoing throughout the lake
<Nemi> Mads may be small, but she still has the strength of a 6'4" basketball player. Which is a lot. Mads picks up as big and heavy a grimoire as she can lift, staggers over— being skewered in the side like that, no fun at all. And will promptly start beating Pagus with it. "Fuck- you- you fucking- arrogant- single-minded- utter /bastard/—" She punctuates each strike with a blow to
<Nemi> the skull.
<FakemixRed> He laughs "I have seen it, my life's work accomplished, I believe Riley would be proud." the blood pouring from the book slams as he loses consciousness, Mads could easily finish him off right then and there
<Nemi> She's gonna beat his stupid face in until it's /flat/. What a /debacle/. The girl they were trying to help has completely lost her mind or worse, Mads herself is covered in vomit and her own blood, Dan's a broken mess, Aslaug's dead..
<Nemi> Everyone is dead or broken and Mads just killed a man with a book.
<FakemixRed> Pagus is now laying in a pool of his own blood with a smile on his face even in death, with his goal accomplished. the grimoire now soaked in blood is unusable.
<Silvors> Daniel pressed himself up, grimacing as he did so. "So… how do we get out?"
<FakemixRed> With Pagus dead, the comm line on the ankle bracelets work again as Dan and Mads receive a call, do they answer?

  • LipstickThespian (||ecafrusbmf) has joined

<Silvors> Daniel answers the call.
<Nemi> Mads lets the grimoire drop and just.. slumps against a wall, sliding down to a sitting position beside Pagus' defaced body. She's completely covered in blood, some hers and some Pagus (and a little of the creep's, too). She's in nothing but tatters, burst jeans and exploded sneakers. She stares off into the middle distance, shaking with a combination of the persistent cold and
<Nemi> who-knows-what-else, the various key artifacts just strewn at her feet.
<FakemixRed> "The block just went down, did you finish the mission? You stopped the ritual right?" Says a worried voice over the intercom, and with the best timing, something starts rising out of the middle of the blood covered lake
<Nemi> Nah. .. Nah. Dan can get it.
<Silvors> "Yeah… we stopped it… Aslaug and Hermione died though…" Daniel said, falling back down and adding a "OW FUCK MY RIBS." In pain.
<Nemi> ".. no. No. She's not .. not dead. Be better if she was." Mads vaguely gestures over her shoulder, out the office's windows overlooking the now blood-red lake.
<LipstickThespian> Liz breathed heavily as she ran her sword over her pant leg, wiping some of the blood off of it as she kicked the corpse. "Shall I go deal with her then?" She says as she looks over to her team mates, a smile coming onto her lips.
<FakemixRed> And from the water comes out Hermione, her schoolgirl outfit in pieces, nearly destroyed, just a vest and half a skirt at this point. She looks at the group, with her eyes full of odd stars, and she's crying "It won't stop it won't stop it won't stop." she cries out
<LipstickThespian> Liz starts to walk over, reaching a hand up to push her hair out of her face. "Come here girl. Let me heal your wounds, come, come." She motions the girl over as she walks.
<Nemi> Mads just hugs her bare and bloodslick legs to her chest and shakes, staring off into the middle distance. This truly was the worst day ever.
<FakemixRed> "Both the escorts died?! how did you fuck up that badly, we're coming over to pick you up right now, where in the mansion are you??"
<Nemi> "N-no.. Hermione's alive. But.. but she completed the ritual. We're… lake? I don't even know. Who even cares. We.. god." Mads just cuts herself off and starts sobbing.
<FakemixRed> Hermione stares at Liz, her eyes bugging out and her limbs in disarray, "I'm sorry, I can't…." despite it all, she seems in perfect health, and something about her just screams 'god'
<LipstickThespian> Liz has a bit of exhaustion in her step as she walks to the girl who had risen from the blood covered lake. "It's going to be alright, let me care for you now, and we will face these horrors together." She tries, as she gets near, to offer her arms for an embrace.

<FakemixRed> Hermione tries her best to warp out of this wretched place but even putting her magic into it, it fails. She stands there and floats toward the balcony. landing with sobs racking her body
<LipstickThespian> Liz watches her go, and considers her chances of dropping the girl where she lay. She thinks better of it, and decides the girl will sort herself out, heading over to Mads as she puts her sword away. "Let me look at you for wounds," she says as she kneels down next to Mads.
<Silvors> Daniel fell back and stared upwards. "Can you look at mine first?" Daniel asked Elizabeth, looking at his broken left arm and smash ribs
<FakemixRed> 1d2
<LoveMachine> FakemixRed: 2
<Silvors> *smashed ribs.
<FakemixRed> Once again to no avail does her magic work. "The chopper is coming right now, if the ritual is completed then run right now, you can't fight whatever comes out."
<Nemi> Mads got pretty badly beaten up. Aside from having a busted nose and facial bruising, along with torn lips, from a /glancing/ punch from a stone golem, Mads was skewered through the side by a stone spear and her legs and feet are covered in strange lacerations. Fortunately, Aslaug DID heal up the /worst/ of it. Mads just stays there crying. There's nowhere /to/ run anyway.
<LipstickThespian> Liz looks up to the girl on the balcony, away from Mads for a second. "They can help you, if you just come with us Hermione." It's as much help as she's willing to offer the girl before she looks back and slips Mads a rose pink vial with a smile. "Should make the pain go away for a bit." Taking off her coat, she drops it around Mads' shoulders and then heads off to Daniel. This
<LipstickThespian> will, well, take some more effort. The same rose pink vial for the pain as she goes about trying to set his arm.

  • Soulless has quit (Quit: I can do good wordcraft when awake, but my best stories are told through dreams.)

<Nemi> Physical pain is temporary. Still, something to dull it is taken, if numbly. Mads isn't really looking at Liz. The cuts all over her legs are probably from the uncontrolled shapechange causing her flesh to have to battle denim and canvas. All that blood's also a biohazard. Should probably dump Mads in a dangerous materials trash bin where she belongs.

  • Roosevelt has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)

<FakemixRed> Finally, her magic works and she warps to parts unknown, in the blink of an eye Hermione vanishes. "Did you escape yet?" the voice over the comm screams in a panic
<Nemi> ".. nowhere to go. Hermione left. Nothing left."
<Silvors> "Hermione disappeared- FUCK DON'T DO THAT ELIZABETH THAT HURTS!" Dan roared as he felt his left arm get set.
<LipstickThespian> "Come on, come on," Liz says as she uses her knife still in sheath and some rope to tie Daniel's arm up and brace it. Then giving him a once over to check for anything gushing blood before she tries to pull him up. "Up and at 'em, Iceman. Goose is gone and we gotta get outta here."
<FakemixRed> You hear something disturb the air as a ladder descends onto the balcony "We're here, get to the chopper and we'll get you home. We'll deal with the loose Magician later, the higher ups aren't going to like this."
<Nemi> Mads isn't moving under her own power, no. This is a fairly ordinary 15-year-old who happens to have a little weirdness who just got thrown into hell for her maiden voyage.
<Silvors> Coming out of Daniel's wounds doesn't seem to be blood but, rather, it's some kind of wispy purple essence. Despite all that, the lich /drags/ his way over to Pagus' body. The lich wanted that fancy gold glove damn it! He wasn't going near death for nothing!
<LipstickThespian> Liz looks over to Mads as she helps the complainer up. "Madeline! You need to find the strength to get up, or I will- alright. I'm getting you. Just a second." She lets Daniel walk away and heads to Mads. I mean he's already dead, he can fall and die on the way up to the chopper. She then heads to Mads, to try and get her up with an arm under the girl's arm. "Come on Madeline,
<LipstickThespian> it's time to go home."
<FakemixRed> The glove is grafted to Pagus' arm, you'll need to chop it off and somehow hollow it out to use it

  • Roosevelt (moc.rr.ser.lacos.963-073-59-29-wfr|wenahtanoj#moc.rr.ser.lacos.963-073-59-29-wfr|wenahtanoj) has joined

<Nemi> Mads doesn't really resist, just walking numbly on as directed. Hooray.
<LipstickThespian> "Dead boy! We're leaving you!" Liz yells back as she guides Mads to the ladder and motions her to climb, following her up.
<Silvors> The lich looks around before cursing and heads towards the ladder. He /really/ didn't like this fucking place though… it did give him a few ideas if he ever decided to make a lair… Liches typically had lairs, right?
<FakemixRed> the guards in the chopper look on with pity at the three. "You did your best…we'll deal with the aftermath later."
<LipstickThespian> "Oh fuck off," Liz says to them as she makes sure her two comrades are strapped in and safe. Before sitting down next to Mads with the helicopter's first aid kit. Working on her legs with some alcohol and wrap.
<FakemixRed> -MISSION…..COMPLETE?-
<FakemixRed> 3 XP and $600 each get. The artifacts are now useless without a magic zone.
<FakemixRed> Daniel 4 XP, Liz 2 XP, Mads 3 XP
