Nicodemus shouts out, "Garrett Woodson! Zane Bieito! Phylis Lenz! Gerald Cooper! Chandrasekhar Singh! Ernst Gohins! You will not stop my plans today!"
Ernst strokes his chin. "Honestly surprised he knew my name. It's not as though I've spoken to him ever."
Aleith|DM: You have a feeling of dozens of people on the zeppelin speaking your names, as well.
Aleith|DM rolled d6 and got 5 ( Total: 5 )
Zane bellows back, "William Miller! Today you die."
Gerald: "William Miller… when have we *ever* failed to stop your plans?"
Phyllis: "William Miller. Today, you meet your proper end."
Gerald: "Also we're kind of world wide famous, Ernst."
Aleith|DM: The energy tendril from the centre rotates 30ยบ counter-clockwise.
Aleith|DM: Garrett!
Garrett: "William Miller, the nation of Risur sentences you to death for crimes, conspiracies, and atrocities against the state."
Chandrasekhar: "William Miller… the Hook has forsaken you, and the world -will- survive you."
Gerald: "… Is that fucking Wolfgang?" Gerald groans, before letting his voice bellow out towards the zeplin. "WOLFGANG YOU HAVE ONE CHANCE. IF YOU STAND DOWN BEFORE ERNST GETS THE BUFFS RUNNING, I WON'T SHOOT YOU IN YOUR GODSDAMNED HEAD."
Garrett: "Crew, keep this heading, we make for the ghost council ahead."
Aleith|DM: You can't actually see Wolfgang, for the record. There's no windows to his position from there.
[OOC] Gerald: is there a wall between the bridge and where he and lya are and that's not a step down?
Aleith|DM: Yes, there's a door in the middle
[OOC] Gerald: oh my bad then
[OOC] Gerald: but i can see jierra and kasva through the bridge windows right
Aleith|DM: Yep.
Aleith|DM: Well. Maybe through a scope…
Aleith|DM: You just see figures in at this distance.
Gerald‘ definitely wasn’t assuming without the scope, no.
Garrett‘ crosses his arms. [Hold init until 34, I guess?]
Gerald: "Hey team how are we feeling about Kasva being on the blimp?"
Zane: "I don’t."
Zane gives Chandrasekhar an apologetic glance.
Garrett: "The same as if Risur faced Inacht, or any countless of the Obscurati in thrall. At the edge of the universe, none shall obstruct us."
Gerald: "He *could* be mind controller her, rather than her memories coming back and her doubling down on being a dipshit."
[OOC] Gerald: controlling^
Garrett: "Surrender is judged as acceptable for Kasvarina." A nod of his head sends a small wave through the air, not unlike the thwack of a gavel.
Gerald‘ rolled d20+24 and got 7 ( Total: 31 )
Garrett: "Were the mind control loosed, judgment shall change."
Gerald: "…Hmm…"
Phyllis: "Mind control, or some other form of soft control. Consider her familial relation to Borne, and Borne’s apparent admiration for Nicodemus."
Gerald: "…Actually I wonder if she's a hostage, she looks kind of nervous and out of place."
Phyllis: "A concerned mother, present for her child, perhaps?"
Gerald: "I'll hold off on putting any bullets in her for now I guess."
Aleith|DM: Nicodemus moves to the north, closer to the Air pillar.
Chandrasekhar: "…I believe that she may yet -choose- to survive. Perhaps given the chance. Yet, at this moment, she stands opposed to us. I would… prefer… if she survived."
Aleith|DM: Gerald!
Garrett: "The group ahead is likely a worthier target for your rancor."
Gerald‘ waits for Ernst while he considers.
Aleith|DM: You all are startled as you remember the first bit of what happened in the Gyre-landing on the rocks of Urim with devils and void spiders, and meeting Calily, as well as visiting Caeloon.
Aleith|DM: You gain the option for one of you to manifest the icon Phyllis made for Urim as a free action, once.
Gerald: "Oh."
Gerald: "That’s why we were gone for a year."
Chandrasekhar: "!!?!"
Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar!
Zane puts a hand to his forehead.
Phyllis stares at her hand, or at least the hand associated with this aspect of herself. The hand of her Gyre-self places the icon to her material-self. She stares in disbelief. [takin' that free action]
[OOC] Phyllis: or not, just acknowledging she has the option, possibly?
Chandrasekhar delays until…. sometime?
Aleith|DM: Ernst!
Phyllis: "Does anyone remember my ramblings from our time on the train?"
Gerald: "Something about philsophy?"
Phyllis: "About building one golden, shimmering timeline with the fragments of failures elsewhen or elsewhere."
Phyllis: "I did not know I was so literally close to the truth."
Ernst [Fleeting Dweomer - +9 ele damage] [Lightning Sigil - +12 Lightning damage] on Gerald before placing down Stocke and then making a clone of himself. [EoT]
Phyllis: Another aspect of herself, elsewhere or elsewhen, flips 100 coins.
Aleith|DM: Gerald, Garrett, Zane?
[OOC] Phyllis: full defenses possibly
Gerald: "Actually I guess this is gunna hit Kasva with a lil splash damage but it won't kill her so whatever."
Gerald‘ ’s gloves flare up for a moment [Caustic Gauntlets Free Action] as he loads a bullet with "Hans Jierre" on i, then takes a deep breath. [Oak Skin] [Quarry Nicodemus] Then, takes a shot at Hans through the window. [Twin Strike]

Aleith|DM: The ghost council swarm floats southwards in a defences positioning. [Total Defence]
Aleith|DM: The Coaltongue flies onwards!
Phyllis: "Get us in close enough, and we can have an [Arcane Gate] boarding party."
Aleith|DM: The Revolution makes a turn to the right as it moves towards you.
Aleith|DM: Borne steps forward, one massive step carrying him beside the Air pillar. Which he lifts straight out of the ground and puts down gently beside it.
Aleith|DM rolled d2 and got 2 ( Total: 2 )
Aleith|DM: The Coaltongue suddenly list to larboard, immoblized, as the levitationals can't draw enough energy to sustain movement, barely enough to keep it aloft.
Gerald: "Ah.
Gerald: That's why they went with a blimp. Okay. "
NinjaWeazel: "Alright, let me down and I'll deal with the biggun I guess."
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 46:Garrett | 41:Lya Jierre | 39:Nicodemus | 37:Gerald | 37:Kasvarina | 37:Elite Crews CD | 36:Han Jierre | 35:Chandrasekhar | 34:Ernst | 32:Zane | 30:Phyllis | 30:Ghost Council | 30:Elite Crews EF | 28:Elite Crews AB | 22:Wolfgang | 0:Borne |

Aleith|DM: Garrett!
Garrett: "Crew, descend."
Gerald: "Do you… still not have boots or a ring or something that at the very least lets you fall safely if not fly at this point, Boss?"
Officer: "Your Majesty, the engineers report that they can't get the levitationals to respond!"
Aleith|DM: As a result of the Air Pillar being unseated, reduce by half all lightning and/or thunder damage that would be dealt.
Garrett‘ clears his throat. "Constable Bieito, looks like you’re taking the free falling way down."
Zane: "On it."
Garrett: "We are remaining on the Coaltongue. Constable Singh, as you possess similar scarament strength to Constable Bieito, we would ask that you join him in his task."
Chandrasekhar salutes Garrett.
Chandrasekhar: "Someone's got to keep you out of trouble, after all." Somehow just from his voice, you can tell he's grinning.
Zane eyes the behemot automaton and audibly cracks his neck. "You and what army?"
Phyllis peers at Borne. "I should… join them, perhaps. Not for planar rearrangement, but if Borne truly has a sentient mind, that may not be as thick as the rest of his skin."
Gerald: "Proally a lot easier to rip into that than his body from what I remember, yeah."
Garrett: "As you will."
Garrett‘ [Full Defense]
Nicodemus throws up a Blade Barrier to block the direct approach to the Air Pillar before moving southwards again.

Aleith|DM: //Secrecy protects the mastermind of the Obscurati with a cloak of shadows. You’re uncertain if your attack even struck him. [Shadow-Cloaked] [0! 0!]

Gerald: "Hmm. Garrett, can you sense anyone we're not seeing getting shot with your weird soul seeing powers?"
Garrett‘ surveys the battlefield.
Garrett: "No. His protection is from a different source."
Gerald: "Uugh okay ghosts first it is."
Aleith|DM: There’s a sense of a flood of tendrils to Nicodemus-including to the ghost council swarm-but it is much the same as to yourselves from the Sacrement.
Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar! Zane!
Zane grabs ursinho by the collar of her robe. "We go." And leaps over the railing of the Coaltongue. By the time he hits the ground he has grown to 50 feet tall and moves with a constant trail of afterimages brandishing various weapons and shields. But still has a hand free to carry his good friend.
Chandrasekhar follows Zane off the side of the ship- and as he falls, he… expands, shimmers, grows golden and glowing, six mirage-wings of light unfurling, curling, twining tendrils, like the vines that break the rocks. They lope towards Nicodemus.
Aleith|DM: Phyllis!
Phyllis stands up [Move], braces herself [Second Wind, minor because dwarf], and readies a spell for when Borne returns to the field. [Standard]

Gerald: "Oh, that let me get a better idea of how the barrier works. See those three orbs?" He points, they’re a bit out from the carriage. "They're coming out of those. Looks like there's actually no barrier around the gun deck."
Garrett: "Good eye."
Aleith|DM: The forward two pairs of guns are covered, but the back set and the rearward guns, plus some of the engines are not.
Nicodemus spends a couple of actions lifting the Life Pillar part-way up, but not enough to uncover the icon yet. "You're going to fail, you know. You'll fail, and I will kill you. The wisest minds of twenty generations agreed to join with me, but you-." His eyes flare like bonfires. "My new world is almost complete, and I'll burn you alive before I let you ruin it."
Aleith|DM: The Revolution Elite Crew members are reloading the cannons this round.
Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar!
Gerald: "I may not be able to kill you, Miller, but I can kill the *fuck* our of your cause."
[OOC] Gerald: out of^

There's a sudden gust of wind as Borne reappears and displaces the air where he was.
Reeling a bit, Nicodemus makes a flicking gesture as if tossing away a cigarette, and thick black smoke surrounds him. It spreads and covers the entire valley. [Smoke fills the entire battlefield, lasting until the end of Nicodemus's next turn. This smoke provides total concealment for all creatures except Nicodemus, who can see through it.]
[OOC] Aleith|DM: A Future Obscured
Aleith|DM: Zane!
Phyllis: "Take me in a little closer."
Zane chuckles. "Hide all you want, William. I don't need eyes to find you. I can smell your desperation."
Ernst: "It would appear that William Miller forgot a certain technique I have been using since the very beginning."
Gerald: "I mean… When has he ever been good at dealing with us?"
Zane reaches through the smoke with one flickering arm, effortlessly lofting the Air pillar and sliding it back into its proper place. Meanwhile another arm lashes through the smoke, the Arsenal gleaming white in the darkness. [fix pillar, MBA]
Zane rolled 1d20+48 and got 18 ( Total: 66.0 )
Aleith|DM: Hit!
Aleith|DM: Normally, it would take an entire round for the pillar to slide back into the hole. However, with From On High, you reseat it immediately, causing a burst of Air energy!

Nicodemus falls to the ground, then pushes himself up, looking around in a sudden panic, for he has landed atop a tall pile of smoldering books and scrolls, as spectral and insubstantial as he. The papers ignite, and he screams with shock as his ghostly form is engulfed. For a moment it seems he might fall, but then the pyre flares to fifty feet tall, and he emerges, incandescent with rage. [151!] [Miller's Pyre]
[OOC] Aleith|DM: Nicodemus loses Shadow-Cloaked, and gains Incandescent Soul (Aura 10): Each creature that enters or ends its turn in the aura takes 50 radiant damage. The area is brightly-lit.
Aleith|DM: Phyllis!
[OOC] Aleith|DM: Zane takes 50 radiant damage at the end of his turn
[OOC] Phyllis: okay so how does movement work for me with me being zanebound
Aleith|DM: You can move your speed within his reach by guiding the hand as a move action I guess.
Zane then moves closer to Borne. "Alright, Tiny. Let me show you some things I learned in school…"
[OOC] Zane: AP for another move action, and done
Phyllis: "Give him a few more minutes before the lesson. We've got some pillars to rearrange." [Arcane Mastery: AP -> regains the use of Refocus] [Minor: Refocus -> switch out Wrath of Battle with Maze] [Standard: Maze]
Zane cups his hand that ws holding the Air pillar and then opens it toward his allies. Each ally within one mile gains a speed of fly 40 (hover) until the end of Zanes next turn. During that time, the first time each of them hits an enemy on their turn, they can slide that creature 10 squares.
Phyllis magics Borne away to her own mental prison, leaving a rune in midair where he was.

Phyllis rolled 3d12r1+36 and got 9, 2, 5 ( Total: 52.0 ) for psychic damage. The target is removed from play. At the end of each of its turns, the target makes an Intelligence check against your Will. On a success, the target returns to play in the space it last occupied or in the nearest unoccupied space of its choice, if that space is occupied. On each failure, the target gains a cumulative +5 bonus to the check.
Aleith|DM: Borne disappears again! [52!]
Phyllis: Phyllis' current Will defense is 52. (base 50, +2 from Trick of Knowledge.)
Aleith|DM: …technically you had a -5 to hit due to total concealment, but I guess that still hits.
Aleith|DM: The Revolution flies some forward….
[OOC] Phyllis: The only thing the tohit roll would change is if it does damage or not. The maze itself would still be on.

Aleith|DM: There’s a flash of light across the entire world. An eladrin woman appears beside Ernst and Gerald, looking confused.
Ernst: "Gonna laugh if that's Kas." He turns around.
Aleith|DM: It's not. Though she looks somewhat like a younger version of her.
Aleith|DM: You saw her in a vision at the top of the Lance of Triegenes in Methia.
Garrett‘ accelerates further! [AP] [Martial Mastery: Refreshes Circling Predator]
Gerald: "You’re… Kasva's daughter, right?"
Gerald: "Last thing you remember is the ritual?"
Dala: "…yes. And what you told us when you visited our grave in the Gyre."
Gerald: "Oh good we don't need to bring you up to speed then."

Aleith|DM: Nicodemus sags and shakes his head in disbelief. His form begins to dissipate, and he reaches out towards Garrett, saying, "It'sall still chaos. Whatever world you create, it will always fall apart."
Aleith|DM: Then he convulses, bends backwards upon himself, and explodes with blinding radiance, spreading outward like a wave to all his followers across the world. [KO!]
Phyllis: "We know."
Ernst: "… who cares? Ours didn't destroy dimensional boundaries. What a dumbass."
Garrett: "Sustaining freedom… sustaining life… is something we always must work toward."
Phyllis: "A better fate than ossifying into an unjust hierarchy."
Aleith|DM: All of the enemy forces on the airship are annihlated. The ghost council screams as they're ripped apart.
Garrett: "It can't be built and not entropy."
Gerald‘ nods towards Ernst with his head before shifting his scope back towards the blimp.
Chandrasekhar: "…you don’t know that, Miller. You can't know that. The world is not a frozen fractal inscribed in the flaws of an unchanging crystal. The world is a growing, living, changing thing. And it will always survive."
Aleith|DM: …the zeppelin continues forward…but then starts slowing to a stop, hovering in place before slowly lowering.
Aleith|DM: The rune marking Borne's place burns out.
Garrett: "Let us finish the repair of the universe."
Aleith|DM: There's not much to stop you from proceeding with rearranging the Axis Seal's pillars as you like.
Aleith|DM: Over the next minute, the rest of your memories of the Gyre come back.
Gerald‘ makes his way over to the blimp to check on anyone inside of it that needs double tapping, and also see if Kasva survived.
Chandrasekhar: "No, my king, my friend. Let us -begin- the work."
Phyllis waits to see if Borne returns.
Aleith|DM: Kasvarina is the only person left alive on the airship as it lands, a bit roughly.
Aleith|DM: Borne doesn’t.
Garrett‘ looks to Chandrasekhar, and with a pause of a thousand heartbeats… he smiles, and nods.
Phyllis frowns.
Gerald: "Hey, you’re in luck. You're not dead, this can prove to Zane we don't need to kill you, *and* Dala's back." He gestures towards their airship.
Kasvarina: "…what?! My daughter lives?!"
Chandrasekhar is… visibly relieved.
Gerald: "She appeared when Miller started leaking divine energy."
Phyllis: "At the very least."
Phyllis recalls her plan from within the Gyre and manifests the icons for Jiese, Caeloon, Av, Ostia, Urim, Apet, Ascetia, and Nem.
Phyllis: "Zane."
Zane: "Let us be about it, Ursinho."
Aleith|DM: You don't have Ostea's or Jiese's icons. But they're already in place.
Phyllis: Close enough
Chandrasekhar lifts Av's pillar himself.
Gerald‘ helps Kasva up, and will fly her back to their airship if she can’t do it herself while Chandra, Zane and Phyllis deal with the seals.
Zane gladly allows his friend that right.
Aleith|DM: Kasvarina has her own flight magic, but the thought is appreciated.
Aleith|DM: Alright. Just those 8 planes, as per the Case Notes page, and no extra ones?
[OOC] Garrett: hey now that we're not time stressed
[OOC] Garrett: do we have time to double stuff oreo
[OOC] Gerald: I'm still in god mode with my sniper rifle >:(
[OOC] Zane: I will retire from the RHC JUST TO KICK YOUR ASS GARRETT
Aleith|DM: You could try it if you like. You've got some time at least. God mode is still around for at least half a day, though the Gyre might have other plans if you take that long.
Garrett‘ will easily let those better versed in planar energies deal with the seals.
[OOC] Phyllis: whatcha got in mind hachi
[OOC] Garrett: I literally have no ideas w/r/t this, I’m just stirring shit
Gerald: "Anyway, I think we're ready to turn it back on whenever you are."
Aleith|DM: Once you've got all of the seals arranged as you like and the last pillar is seated, those of you that placed the seals feel a surge of energy, and you can move the golden seal with ease with this energy back into place.
Aleith|DM: When the golden seal falls into place, the whole valley shakes with the impact, and the once-blinding light pouring out of the center of the ritual vanishes. In the following few seconds, magic readjusts on a worldwide scale, and clouds roil overhead as energy gathers to this spot.
Aleith|DM: In the midst of the crew's celebrations, and your own reactions, a beam of sunlight shines above the mountains at the edge of the valley and illuminates the forest on the far side.
Aleith|DM: Within minutes, night is pushed away for the first time in months by the sunrise.
Zane brushes his hands together and takes a deep breath as the sunlight cuts through the clouds. "I need a vacation."
Ernst glances around and once he has discerned that everything is done and over with he steps into his Astral Seed. "I'm taking mine right now. Bye."
Garrett‘ looks amongst his compatriots.
Chandrasekhar holds his breath until he sees the sun, and then laughs- almost-hesitantly, delightedly, drunk on the light.
Gerald: "…Dammit he’s just doing that to avoid the paper work!"
Garrett: "All personnel… take five."
Chandrasekhar: "Yes sir."
Kasvarina and Dala are celebrating their own reunion after five centuries.
Phyllis: "One shimmering, golden timeline."
Garrett‘ ’s countenance fades from the multilayered personas, thoughts, feelings, eyes… it's just Garrett, now.
Pemberton's duplicant re-activates on the ship. "Congratulations, constables, Your Majesty. You surely pulled it off."
Garrett‘ flies back up to the Coaltongue.
Garrett: "We had to," he says as he hops back up over the railing and toward the duplicant.
Garrett: "Of course… now we have to take stock of what Nico…" He shakes his head, "Of what Miller’s death has done to the world."
Garrett: "But… I think that can wait for at least a day."
Phyllis: "What am I even going to do with myself now?"
Garrett‘ cracks his knuckles and stretches his arms. "I think that’s a question that doesn't really have a time limit, you know?"
Garrett: "Ever consider stage directing?"
Phyllis: "Something of the sort."
Garrett‘ laughs.
Garrett: "Nah, I’m absolutely talking about a non-philosophical, non-abstracted layer."
Phyllis: "So am I."
Garrett: "So what kind of sort is it?"
Phyllis: "You'll see. It can wait for at least a day."
Garrett‘ laughs again! He’s in high spirits!
Garrett: "I greatly look forward to it."
Garrett: "For now!" He heads down the deck. "Coffees! Teas!" he calls out. "Anything that one would do for unwinding!"
Garrett: "Soothe some nerves before we finish confirming the site's security,"
Garrett: "And before we go home."
