Zg Session 09

Aleith|DM: The sun descends brilliantly, gleaming off the waters of Flint Harbor, though the light is dulled by a haze across the city. Buildings far below cast long shadows in the streets. The darkness grows, consumes the city, and for a moment the mountain top is the only thing still illuminated. Then the night claims it as well.
Aleith|DM: City lights smear out below you, but overhead the stars are brilliant and clear. Nevard says that he must study the stars for as long as possible, and that in the morning he will sleep.
Aleith|DM: Within an hour the air drops from the warmth of a tropical summer to a soul-chilling winter freeze. The wind fluctuates wildly, sometimes eerily still, then bursting with gusts that shake every tree on the mountaintop. Moans slide across the peak like waves, and when the wailing wind quiets, the party can hear suddenly-dry leaves cracking underfoot, and erratic bursts of malevolent laughter further down the slope.
Aleith|DM: Ernst, make an Endurance check.
Ernst rolled d20+3 and got 14 ( Total: 17.0 )
Aleith|DM: You're fine, the cold isn't that bad with the fire.
Aleith|DM: Garrett, you can hear voices all around, but the sound is muted, like a party down the street.
Aleith|DM: Everyone (Chandra, Ernst, Garrett, Gerald, Phyllis), make Stealth checks with a +2 bonus from the camoflauge Zane setup.
Ernst rolled d20+1 and got 20 ( Total: 21.0 )
Garrett‘ sinks into the foliage.
Ernst is really fucking good at hiding. The party didn’t even realize he was there when they climbed the mountain.
Garrett‘ rolled 1d20+11 and got 3 ( Total: 14 )
Gerald` rolled d20+11 and got 7 ( Total: 18 )
Aleith|DM: Seems like it, Ernst.
Phyllis frowns, looking at the ring of blood with some trepidation, then scuttles in at the last second.
Chandrasekhar rolled d20 and got 1 ( Total: 1 )
Phyllis rolled d20+3 and got 9 ( Total: 12.0 )
Aleith|DM: You start to see shadows moving in the trees, creeping upward toward the peak. Wispy white spirits circle and swoop lazily to the silent music, and though they do not seem to see you, slowly more and more float by the camp, as if attracted by a scent.
Aleith|DM: Then the actual monsters show up.
Aleith|DM: First something that looks like a semi-transparent legless man, its head just a bare skull, crawls hand over hand toward your camp. It’s hard to make out details in the dark, but it stops when it reaches the ring of blood, and then it turns to follow. Eager, maddened chuckling comes from the thing, like it's excited about an imminent meal.
Aleith|DM: Then a crowd of foot-high goblin-like spectres approach from the other direction, cavorting and jumping in wild circles like it’s a celebration. They suddenly stop when they spot the ring of paint, and they too start to follow it, gibbering to each other in a gutteral language.
Aleith|DM: In the following minutes they’re joined by horned vestiges of tiefling-like demons, a growling lion whose head is framed by a cluster of writhing snakes, bat-winged rats whose screeching rattles your heads, and more-–all of them barely visible, like they’re pressing up against a veil trying to reach into this world.
Aleith|DM: None of them cross the ring, but within an hour you are surrounded on all sides by crowds of monsters, all of them mindlessly tracing endless circles in search of something to devour.
Chandrasekhar watches the monsters with rapt interest and not a trace of fear.
Aleith|DM: And this is going to go on all night. Anything you guys want to do to prevent yourselves from going a bit crazy from the mind-eroding cacophony of wails on the wind?
Gerald: "This isn't so different from when the bars do last call, all things considered."
Ernst passes the time by tinkering with his robot. He seems to be a bit on edge honestly. (Also summoning my robot early since I have a literal entire night to do so.)
Phyllis: You know…
Garrett‘ is content to stay well hidden and watch the parade. Chews a bit of feyweed.
Phyllis: We could use a little bit of [Silence.] (Ritual.)
Aleith|DM: Nevard starts humming to himself as he begins looking at the stars in the sky.
Chandrasekhar has solved this problem by already being a bit crazy; there’s something a little wild-eyed about his interest in the monsters. Phyllis is probably used to this.
Aleith|DM: Yes. That will do quite nicely, actually.
Aleith|DM: …do you have ritual components?
[OOC] Phyllis: don't we handwave it as spending GP and going 'they were components the whole time' also can I borrow 25 GP
Ernst has 5 GP to his name.
Chandrasekhar: "Fae lifetimes in which to develop and further the concepts of harmony and visvaram, and yet we cannot match the… -power-, the hunger, in these animal wails." He's turned on Phyllis, breathlessly regaling her, absentmindedly handing her the components she'd asked him to pick up and keep on his person.
Garrett‘` has 40 on him, almost as if he had some aside so Phyllis could ask for them, OR WAS IT HER DOING ALL ALONG?
Gerald` is probably mostly playing solitare while keeping an eye out.
Aleith|DM: Well, as long as it gets covered, I’ll handwave it.
[OOC] Phyllis: let's say Chandra covered it and I owe him the 25
Aleith|DM: Anyway, good job, nobody loses a healing surge from psychic damage.
Phyllis takes a few minutes to further ward the area from sound, inscribing a few runes in the dirt behind her hiding spot. "It's not really something to aspire to."
Chandrasekhar: "…mm. I suppose I was getting a little carried away, wasn't I?"
Gerald: "Yup."
Aleith|DM: Occasionally unnatural drowsiness will slide across one of you, only to snap back away moments later. Or you might hear eerie horns playing in the night, despite the zone of Silence. Phyllis spots the party sitting on the opposite rise for a moment at one point, before the image disappears.
Aleith|DM: Then an apparition manifests in the center of the circle of blood: a velvet red curtain hovers in the air, looking completely solid, glowing as if hit by a spotlight that doesn’t exist. The curtain sways, and there seem to be figures on the other side.
Chandrasekhar tilts his head to the side.
Aleith|DM: Nilasa, slightly transparent, steps out from behind the curtain, putting a hushing finger to her lips, then points out into the night and says, "The man who killed me is coming. His face is scarred, so he hides behind many faces." Then she raises a featureless black mask to her face. When she puts it on she fades away, as does the curtain. The air is suddenly thick with the stench of burnt engine grease.
Gerald: "Garrett I think maybe you are smoking too much, I'm seeing things."
Aleith|DM: You've only just begun to see things.
Aleith|DM: The stars overhead seem to streak in lines as time stretches out, and then to the north, down by Parity Lake, a building catches fire with dreamlike swiftness. Suddenly you find yourselves standing between two factories, and two tongues of flame leap from one to the the next, like a pair of burning dragons. Screams erupt from the people trapped inside, the conflagration consumes the factories, and the charred buildings collapse to reveal tomorrow morning's sunrise. A blackened sign sits in the ash, saying 'Sechim's Alkahest & Etchings.'
Aleith|DM: Then the vision ends with a snap, and you're again standing on the black peak of Cauldron Hill.
Garrett: "So long as they're the same thing I'm seein', it's okay."
Aleith|DM: Nevard, still looking at the stars, gives a knowning hum. He points up at a red star. "Jiese, the plane of fire, is brighter tonight than usual. Its light reflects off the lake. You saw it, didn't you?"
Gerald: "Uh, the girl that jumped out the window being some kind of weird opera performer and then factories burning…?"
Garrett: "Saw it, heard it, wish I hadn't, glad I did."
Phyllis: "I told you guys, back on the island. Astral interference from Jiese."
Phyllis points at Gerald.
Chandrasekhar blinks, repeatedly, switching into a breathing exercise against mohya by training, beginning to understand why a skyseer may have wanted to use this hill. "Yes."
Gerald: "I have a lot more experience with narcotics than I do weird planer energy hallucinations."
Aleith|DM: Nevard continues watching the sky for more signs as the hours pass by.
Ernst chews at his lip. "Those creatures aren't bothering any of you, though?"
Phyllis doesn't flinch from the experience, having been through more or less the same thing many times when inflicting Charm spells on herself to familiarize her with the effects.
Gerald: "Tuning them out, mostly."
Phyllis smirks at Ernst. "You want me to show you worse?"
Chandrasekhar: "Now, now. Be nice."
Garrett‘ wordlessly reaches a hand over to Ernst. There’s a pinch of feyweed between his fingers.
Phyllis looks out at the city. "Though. Sechim's factory. When is it safe to move from here?"
Gerald: "Morning, I'd guess."
Garrett: "Even though this stakeout is going swimmingly, probably want to get the local forces on the horn ahead of us."
Ernst glances at Phyllis. "I'm sure I'll see worse eventually. Everything seems to be going to shit lately."
Garrett: "When we dragass back down that is."
Nevard: "The spooks will have all left by morning. If the vision is accurate, the fire won't start until a bit before that. I want to see as much as possible, but we can leave well before dawn. Just need to distract the spooks before departing."
Phyllis: "Distract them with what? Other than tossing a glowstick very far away."
Ernst shrugs. "I can throw the robot at them."
Nevard: "Pretty much exactly that, actually. Light is a brilliant distraction for them, pardon the pun."
Phyllis: "Well…"
Phyllis: "Give me a signal and I can make it glow."
Phyllis: "And just tell it to keep running."
Aleith|DM: Slightly after midnight, a brilliant glow lights up the mountaintop, filling the other peak with bright light. All the monsters surrounding the ring of blood turn to look.
Aleith|DM: A humanoid figure holds the sunrod, its body inhumanly angular, its skin featureless and black like a silhouette. It sprints to the near edge of the other rise and then hurls the sunrod. The glowing beacon arcs and then hits right in the center of your camp. As one, the monsters surrounding the blood ring lock eyes on the party and attack.

Ernst: "So uh."
Garrett‘ sighs.
Gerald: "Uh."
Phyllis: "Son of a bitch."
Ernst: "I’m guessing nobody took the vision seriously when they said that guy was coming?"
Gerald: "Yeah, weird fey hallucinations are always direct and upfront and honest and helpful."
Phyllis: "I thought she meant eventually."
Aleith|DM: The lion jumps over the line of blood and strikes at Chandrasekhar!

Gerald: "Okay I got it."
Garrett‘ gives the remaining spirits a wide berth.
Gerald` reloads, collapses.
[OOC] Phyllis: so, +1 AP?
Aleith|DM: Yep. Milestone.
Ernst gets to work right away. He sends two Curative Admixtures Geralds way healing him for a total of [+22 HP] He then uses the next five minutes to jack two of Chandras healing surges and refresh the daily item power on his repulsion armor.
Garrett: "Nevard, you’re gonna have to help us carry Gerald on down the hill."
Garrett: "Oh wait he's got the pink back, nevermind."
Nevard: "I believe I've seen enough, and need to rest to understand what all I saw means."
Gerald: "That was pretty unpleasent though!"
Nevard: "Thank you for protecting me."
Phyllis: "Sure. Meanwhile there's at least one thing of, um, immediate import."
Chandrasekhar nods, stretching out a bit, cleaning wisp goo off his sword, etc.
Nevard: "The vision of the fire dragon at the factory? I'd like you to see if you can help my nephew, yes. That would be greatly appreciated."
Garrett: "Well, you know. Some of the fire might get on the rest of the city."
Phyllis: "Precisely."
Gerald: "Woah woah woah. Dragon?"
Ernst: "Were you nodding off during that part of the vision?"
Gerald: "All I saw was fire! Also aren't dragons, like extinct?"
Ernst: "I'd say it's more accurate to say no one has seen one in X amount of years and reported it."
Nevard: "The flames looked like dragons, though how symbolic that is remains to be seen."
Garrett: "There weren't dragons, he's just being dramatic."
Gerald: "Oh, okay."
Garrett: "There certaintly aren't any dragons and if there are we'd never see them in our lifetimes ever for sure."
Phyllis: "Metaphorical dragons."
Chandrasekhar: "So, the upshot of this is that we're absolutely going to need to deal with a dragon in the future. Better get Zane to crack the history books on how to deal with them."
Phyllis: "In any case." She looks to the others. "Should we … return the amulets and all? Or are we beelining to the factory?"
Garrett: "Chandra I just gave this whole spiel."
Garrett: "Factory, first."
Ernst glances at Phyllis. "Amulets? I got here a bit late."
Garrett: "Mayor's probably not even awake enough to register that we returned 'em."
Gerald‘ grumbles, starts making his way back down.
Chandrasekhar deadpans at Garrett`: "Oh! Sarcasm." Anyways, time to hightail it to the factory.
Phyllis: "Agreed, then. And, uh. Pretty sure we handed you one when you arrived. Was supposed to protect from the evil around here."
Ernst: "Oh, that? I’m sure they can wait until morning."
Phyllis: "Yup."
[OOC] Phyllis: To the Factory! press x button etc. etc.
Garrett‘ nods. "You coming with, Nevard, or can you get back once we put you on flat land?"
Aleith|DM: The sunrod is more-or-less where you wanted to go, but it doesn’t take you long to skirt around the spooks. With the light distracting them, the hour-long climb back down is uneventful.
Phyllis has [Light] as a handy cantrip to distract their attention more-or-less anyway.
Aleith|DM: True.
Aleith|DM: Bringing Nevard with you, or dropping him off somewhere, or…?
[OOC] Chandrasekhar: we asked him!
[OOC] Garrett: I asked him what he wanted lol
Aleith|DM: Oh, I missed that, yes
Aleith|DM: When you get to the bottom, Nevard wishes you luck with the factory and heads off. He knows some people in the Nettles he can stay with, and will sleep on the visions. He thanks you again for your help and says he'll get in touch with Gale about setting up a meeting.
Aleith|DM: It's just after 2AM when you get to Heward Sechim's factory. The small protests outside the two neighbouring factories have dispersed this late. A pair of sleepy guards still stand outside Sechim's Alkahest & Etchings.
Aleith|DM: Seems to be torchlight coming from the alley between Heward's factory and the one on the right.
Gerald: "Things seem okay…?"
Garrett‘ subtly checks out that torchlight, peering around the corner.
Ernst: "Didn’t say when it was happening at least."
Phyllis: "Means we're in time." She points at the fire. "Vision had something about neighboring factories."
Phyllis: "Yeah, just knew it would be charred by sunrise."
Aleith|DM: Around the corner, you see 4 people unloading stuff from a wagon, with a dragonborn nearby, directing them.
Gerald: "I'm gunna go climb up on the roof and take a nap if nothing's happening."
Phyllis: "(Garrett, want to get in for a look?)"
Garrett‘ slowly turns to look at Phyllis. "(What, alone?)"
Phyllis shrugs. "(Any idea what’s in the wagon, at least?)"
Gerald‘ climbs up onto the roof after hearing no objections.
Aleith|DM: Gerald, on the roof (there’s a handy ladder at the mouth of the alley) there's another dragonborn.
Garrett: "(No, don't you go to sleep.)"
Gerald‘ pauses.
Aleith|DM: Looks like large, heavy bags.
Aleith|DM: That they’re unloading.
Aleith|DM: Some sort of sand inside them? They're flexible.
Garrett‘ will walk around the corner but he’s being flanked by Chandra.
Garrett‘ wait no

Aleith|DM: Stealth?
Garrett` rolled 1d20+11 and got 5 ( Total: 16 )
Gerald` sloooowly raises his shotgun, trains it on the dragonborn’s head. "Ahem. RHC. Slowly put the bags down and raise your hands in the air."
Aleith|DM: The dragonborn on the roof yells, "cops!"
Phyllis: "I was going to say that it's possible they're legit, but that shout from the roof negates that notion."
Aleith|DM: And the dragonborn in the alley, noticed you, Garrett, and was about to say something, when he reaches for his greatsword.
Gerald: "Ugh why does no one even listen to me!"
Gerald: "Now I'm going to have to shoot you! And it's going to hurt! And then I'm going to have to file a lot of paper work and you're going to need a lot of stitches!"
Chandrasekhar smiles.
Phyllis looks up at the roof and jerks a thumb up at them, then glances at his comrades down below. "Seriously, you can't even think of a cover story like that?"
Ernst: "Please. I file most of the paperwork anyways. That's why I was late to the mountain."
