Chapter 1: Bomb Squad

Post by KingmunkeyX on Sun Sep 11, 2016 8:31 am

That night each of the members of the "group"  had visions of a skeletal figure rising from ashes. His flaming bones sending waves of heat that feel as if you were truly burning. 

Loud knocks are heard in the six rooms. You awake from the dream with what feels like a burn on your arm. Guards await you outside of the room waiting to take you to meet with Artemis before beginning the adventure.

Zilyana doesn't dream. Elves don't dream. It's impossible for them to dream, but the vision comes to her as an invasion of her short 4 hour meditation. Awakening before the guards come to knock, she sits for a time before performing the Korumn, the weapon pattern dances of the Bladesingers until she has sweated the vision of fire from her veins. Following that, she studies the small dragon leather book that contains her spells, choosing carefully for the day (Mage Armor, False Life, Sleep). She is just finishing a second round of deeper stretches when the knock comes.

"Enter!" She says from where she stands, left leg firmly firmly planted on the floor right leg above her head on the wall. She leans into the stretch for another moment before turning to see who enters.

"What is this creature? It is so hot here!" Crash looks around, its as black as a witches soul. The creature rises slowly, it has no skin, muscle, our cartilage. Flames roll out of its eye sockets. Crash takes a step back, really feeling the heat now. Pain runs over his entire body. Observing his figure, Crash sees blisters forming on his limbs. The skeleton figure was upon him, three hits from his weapon "BOOM, BOOM, BOOM." 

Crash opens his eyes. No longer feeling he effects of his dream he realizes the loud noises in his dream were knocks on his door. "I'll be out shortly! Let me grab my wears."

Dressed and ready for the adventure ahead, Crash walks out the room and proceeds to follow the guards to  meet with Lord Artemis.

The wooden door opens to a tall,  slender man,  his armor lighter than the rest of the guards has a symbol on the center chest piece.  The symbol is of a hand holding what appears to be scales.

"Miss Irithyl,  my name is Tomas.  I will be escorting you to the main hall. Please follow me."

Tomas then heads out of the room as Crash walks past him. "Good day to you sir,  Master Artemis is in the main hall. If you wouldn't mind taking Zilyana with you.  While I tend to the others. It seems they are late waking on this day."

----

The main hall is decorated with curtains of the holy symbols of the gods who built the prison.  Artemis can be seen knelt before one of the statues. The statue is of a man with blindfolds over his eyes, a longsword in one hand and a large hammer Attached to his back. 

Artemis stops his prayer. He approaches the those who just entered the room. "I hope your accommodations for the night were better than they have been. As soon as the others are ready you will be able to head out. I have arranged for a trip to Bamor,  the city of guilds. There you will meet with the alchemist Philoscent Featherstone,  a Gnome who runs a guild of alchemist within the city. Philo will be the one who gets you the explosive. From there I have arranged another ship to take you to your destination. "

"For a prison guard in The Gauntlet you are... Not what I expected." Zilanya says, looking him up and down. "Polite, easy going, well kept and respectful. This is the strangest incarceration I've ever experienced. Well, I suppose it's also the only one, but it's just really not what I expected." She follows him out, trying to make small talk. "So how long have you been a guard here?"

Alexi feels the presence of a being invading his mind, curious he allows it in.

A gruesome vision manifests in his mind as he welcomes the heat of home and the smell of burning flesh. It was been many centuries since he has been back. The homesickness has long worn off, leaving him numb to the feeling of what home really is.

Hearing the knocks on his door Alexi raises from his rest and don his garb. As he heads out as very polite man passes in a hurry, "Good Morning.... Sir?(Curious as to what to call a demon), please make your way to the Main Hall."

Alexi bows his head slightly as a sign of thanks and understanding and makes his way to the main hall without a word.

Morthos is troubled by the vision, not having seen anything like it in his lifetime.  Thrashing in the soft bed cloth, feathers, and straw cover a portion of the room.  Standing up he puts his equipment back on and taking the bed roll out of a pocket at the small of his back he puts it out next to the bed and lays back down.  Sleep comes slowly and not as deeply, so when the first knock comes he is awake, by the 3 on his feet and before the 5th can land he opens the door with his scimitar in hand.

At Artemis's words Zilanya feels a thrill, she will be traveling sea again! "I would be glad to lend my hand to sailing the vessel if there is a need." She says, unable to keep the yearning from her voice. This morning she wears no armor, only a lose white silk shirt with a tooled leather bodice and black silk pantaloons tucked into her knee high folded down boots. Her tricorn hat is perched at a jaunty angle and her scimitar is thrust through a bright red sash.

Tomas surprised by the point of the e blade in his face jumps backwards. "Easy killer." He lifts his hands up showing Morthos he bears no weapon. "Just cane to let you know Artemis is waiting."

Artemis acknowledges the others as they make their way into the hall." the ship is waiting at the port. After everyone gathers we will head out.  He did not respond to the question from Crash,  but gave a slight smile towards him.

Re: Chapter 1: Bomb Squad

Post by Alucard on Sun Sep 11, 2016 4:04 pm

Dragons and dragonborn have always held a resistance against the elements, particularly fire.  But this… this was no ordinary flame Alucard was dreaming of, and that was no ordinary figure either.  A sudden movement in bed and noise from beyond the door drove Alucard to awaken.  He reaches for the burning sensation that is on is arm.  This burn is something that should have scaled through any other race’s skin, but this was strong enough to cause even himself pain.
After the pain lessens, his hand goes down to his gem that is embedded in the gauntlet.  He feels he can use it once again.  Alucard thinks to himself that if he is truly going to accomplish his goals and keep the others safe, he is going to need more power.  As if answering his thoughts, a magical sensation comes from the gem like before.  His mind fills with the thoughts of spells and incantations to replace the jewel as it dissolves.  Everything he needs to know about each spell is already in his head and how to properly use them.  Though he is still a beginner, he knows the spells are perfect for his use.  (Cantrips: Shocking grasp, Dancing Light. Spells: Thunderwave, Alarm, Chromatic Orb)
A single knock is heard on the door.  Alucard stands from bed and moves himself to his belongings, equipping himself for the day.  “I will be out shortly,” he responds.  Placing his leather mail upon his frame and pulls upon his trousers.  For someone trained in knighthood, he wasn’t much for the heavy armor and shields.  He continues to place his longsword on his left side and his dagger strapped to his back.  He keeps an eye on the door as if expecting a visitor.  He tends to the room, leaving it as he found it.  Respect is something he will never hesitate in. 
He leaves the room not a moment later than Alexi.  He hears the guard’s advice, following Alexi into the hall.  Entering the hall he can make out voices, but misses what was said before.  The last thing that is heard is “…waiting at the port.”  Instead of asking questions, he will wait for the full word with the rest.

Crash noticed the smile that Artemis gave upon answering his question. He is quite intrigued to find out what is in store for them.  

“My Lady, I am no guard here. I have been offered a position within this group by Lord Artemis.” Crash replies to Zilyana. “I just arrived here yesterday. I was a simple Templar of the Shine of Broken Worlds. My…….mentor promoted me into the ranks of the shine’s paladins a few weeks ago.”

Crash goes on to tell Zilyana how he became to be here as they wait on the others.

Listening to Crash's story, Zilyana turns pale. "That kind of thing just doesn't happen in the Elven Kingdoms. Or it doesn't when the Lords are doing their duty to defend them. You say Artemis ... Dealt with the problem?" She lowers her voice, "I sensed darkness in him before. When he was angry, something vast and terrible seemed to rest about his shoulders like a mantle. Is he ... safe?"

"Lady Irithyl, I did notice the darkness that he expelled from himself. Whether this quest is for his personal gain or has the world's best interest in mind, either way we are all in this together." Crash continues to wait for the others to arrive.

"That's not good enough for me... Did you see a vision of fire?". She chews her lower lip, a nervous habit, " I have never... Dreamed before."

Her eyes go wide, "Identical. But you don't understand. Elves don't dream. We don't sleep. This just doesn't happen to us... Which means it wasn't a dream."

Alexi walks into the rooms and observes from afar, leaning against the wall. He listens in to his "teammates" speaking.

He pulls a book from his cross body satchel, leaning his sword against the wall and studies some Warlock magic. (Spells: Arms of Hadar, Hellish Rebuke)

Alexie, Morthos, Alucard, and Chomski walk into the room. Artemis walks to greet each of them as Crash and Zilyana have their conversation. His smile waivers to a frown for just a moment before going back to smiling and approaching the rest. "Now that we are all here let us revisit what we are doing here."

Artemis walks back towards the rest. "It seems all of us here experienced the dream from last night then. I informed you all that there was evil growing in this world. One cannot guaranatee but it may be something we must deal with." He pulls one of the scrolls from his side. "For this mission your objective is to destroy a temple for the lizardfolk and destroy the eggs and whatever they may be making their mutations with. The temple has begun mutating the ground surrounding it and word is its spreading. If you find any hostages you will also be responsible for rescuing them." He points to the scroll. "You will take a ship to Bamor and meet with a Gnome named Philoscent, leader of the alchemist guild. He will supply you with the device needed to destroy the temple. Be careful Ssha'Karass has tormented the area for years and has many followers, Many reptilian relatives follow him as their king. Whenever everyone is ready we will move to the port. I will await outside."

Artemis tucks the scroll away. As he walks towards the door you notice something must be on his mind.

Artemis turns towards Crash. "Sometimes you cannot let go of your past. Sometimes your past latches itself onto you.  Worry not about me. The others shall be your focus now."

(Alexie needs an perception to see if he hears their conversation)
