Zg Session 22

Aleith|DM: Garrett: You're in the Nettles, introducing Gerald to your favourite halfing, 'Essy'. She's talking to Gerald about prices for Leaf of Nicodemus when the door starts rattling.
The door's flung open, and three orcish mummies are standing outside.
You find yourself back in the entrance hall of the ziggurat, and the three mummies have just broken free of the ropes that once held them against the wall. The notice left by Xambria to her students flutters to the ground as they advance on you and Gerald.

Back in the room with the false seal, you hear a faint trickling sound coming from the door. Some dark fluid is slowly pouring into the room, just an inch deep now, but swelling to ankle deep with an alarming speed. As the water crosses over the threshold it carries away the rug, revealing a glowing icon of concentric rings beneath.
At the same time, the corpses on the ground twitch, open their eyes, and fix them on you.
Aleith|DM: Zane!
Garrett` exhales. He steps back from the dust and looks over to Gerald.
Zane delays until after Phyllis.
Garrett: "…Hey."
Garrett: "How’s it been?"
Chandrasekhar: You're on a trail in the Chessboard Forest in the Dreaming, enjoying the sounds of nature.

Ernst: "If we go through the pit room again are those vines going to come back?"
Phyllis: "Not if we're quick enough."
Ernst double moves down the hall. He activates his repulsion armor for good measure just in case something tries to grapple him again.

Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 27:Garrett | 23:Crushing Force | 19:Fire Trap B | 15:Gerald | 15:Zane | 13:Chandrasekhar | 13:Ernst | 13:Phyllis |
Garrett: "Gettin' more humid."
Aleith|DM: Water keeps pourin' in.
Aleith|DM: Things explode and crush.
Aleith|DM: Zane?
Gerald: "yeah there was something about water in the last message they sent…?"
Gerald‘ casually strolls out of the temple and to the side of the entrance.
Zane just sucks it up and runs through the fire. [Double move]
Aleith|DM: You make it through between explosions.
Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar, Ernst, Phyllis!
Ernst snaps his fingers as his robot vanishes again. [Free Action] He then drops it right in the fire trap. "Alright Stocke, I’m going to have to tune you up a bit after this."
Phyllis [runs!]
Aleith|DM rolled d20+9 and got 11 ( Total: 20 ) for vs ref
[OOC] Ernst: Minor Action - sets off fire trap.
Aleith|DM rolled 2d6+7 and got 6, 5 ( Total: 18.0 )
Aleith|DM: 9 fire damage!
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 27:Garrett | 23:Crushing Force | 23:Fire Trap A | 19:Fire Trap B | 15:Gerald | 15:Zane | 13:Chandrasekhar | 13:Ernst | 13:Phyllis |
Ernst has stocke waddle up to Garrett and Gerald.
Phyllis appears next to Ernst, panting and out of breath. Academic, short stubby dwarf legs…
Garrett: "First past the post! Good job, Stocke."
Ernst then nods to Phyllis before smiling and teleporting next to Stocke.
Ernst: "Place is flooding by the way."
Chandrasekhar briefly considers picking Phyllis up and running through with her on his shoulders but decides that'd be an unnecessary logistical challenge, and just hauls ass.
Aleith|DM: You need line of sight to teleport. Can say you teleported with each move action Stocke made, so goodenough
Garrett: "Oh yeah?"
[OOC] Ernst: Do I? I just see it say 'Within 10 squares'
[OOC] Ernst: Of your tether
Aleith|DM: Teleportation still needs line of sight.
Aleith|DM: Anyway.
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 27:Garrett | 23:Crushing Force | 23:Fire Trap A | 19:Fire Trap B | 15:Gerald | 15:Zane | 13:Chandrasekhar | 13:Ernst | 13:Phyllis |
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 27:Garrett | 23:Crushing Force | 23:Fire Trap A | 19:Fire Trap B | 15:Gerald | 15:Zane | 13:Chandrasekhar | 13:Ernst | 13:Phyllis |
Aleith|DM: Zane, Chandrasekhar, Phyllis!
Chandrasekhar hauls ass through again to meet up with the others. "Well, this has certainly been exhilarating."
Ernst: "What did we even get from coming here, again?"
Ernst: "Asides from a headache and an all nighter fixing stocke."
Gerald: "Don't remember."
Zane: "Directions to another temple."
Gerald: "On sight investigation?"
Phyllis just double-moves this time, saving some breath, then turns back, looking for Zane. "I'll give you a rundown when we're not dying. But our benefactor may have taken the wrong seal."
Garrett: "Oh, you're all back."
Ernst: "Right. We're heading back."
Zane just strolls up between explosions like he's an 80s action hero or something.
Phyllis waves a hand. "Alright, alright, everyone out."
Zane: "The wrong seal? You think the stone one back there is the genuine article?"
Phyllis nods. "Given the vision that Gerald - and later, myself - saw, I'm pretty sure."
Chandrasekhar: "…then why did breaking it cause all hell to break loose?"
Phyllis: "Can we not discuss this in the doorway of a still-flooding temple?"
Aleith|DM: The water has made it to the entrance by now, though it is still only an inch deep.
Garrett‘ hops on out of the temple. Don’t get your shoes wet!
From the mouth of the ruin you spot shapes moving beyond in the rain, advancing from all directions. The three corpses from the camp stand nearby, reaching out to attack them, and out in the swamp it seems as if every dead creature within a mile has risen and is shambling toward them.
There must be thousands of creatures—peat-coated skeletons, zombified crocodiles, hollow carapaces of spiders, and swarms of centipedes, bats, and blood-thirsting birds. Beneath the cries of the throng, you hear a deep sound, like a growling voice.
Gerald: "Are you kidding me."
Phyllis: "I should have prepared Battlefield Elocution for such a shouting match."
Zane: "Good thing we are getting the hell out of here."
Aleith|DM: That might be a little difficult.
Phyllis: "… oh hell." May I make a religion check?
Aleith|DM: What for?
Aleith|DM: You hear a slithering whisper urging you, "climb."
Zane: "… Up the temple. Lets go."
Phyllis: "Ernst, was that you?"
Gerald: "Sounds as good as any other plan to me."
Phyllis: " - true. High ground has a vantage point."
Gerald‘ makes sure his shotgun is stowed and begins scampering up the side of the temple.
Ernst smiles. "Haha. Very funny."
Garrett: "We all shoulda’ brought shotguns." He begins scaling the ziggurat.
Zane will worry about 'who' said shit later, right now he needs the higher ground if he's going to have to fight off an army.
Chandrasekhar: "…dear goddess." He scrambles for a handhold!
Aleith|DM: The horde continues trudging towards the ziggurat. As you reach the top, the closest ones begin climbing the sides of the ziggurat after you.
Chandrasekhar: "What in the world is…"
Phyllis clambers up. "I figured you were practicing different voices in ventriloquism to make your mechanical simulacrum talk."
Gerald‘ swings his rifle off his shoulder, finds a decent spot to perch, then starts shooting the ones highest up.
When the horde is within charging distance, a massive shape moves in the rain, almost as if the swamp itself is rising up, alive. Swaths of the hungry dead are pulled beneath the surface, and then the head of the marshy shape snakes out of the rain from the side and cuts off the approach of the undead. A titanic serpent, its half-rotted skull 20 feet long, snaps its teeth down upon the front line of the horde, and as it devours the dead it locks one enormous, milky gray eye on the party.
Gerald: "Uh -"
Garrett: "…thanks?"
With a few brief thrashes of his coils, the titan—who is so large that you can hardly make out the scale of his body through the haze of rain—destroys the gathered undead. Then he withdraws into the drizzle, partially hidden. You can only make out his general silhouette, but the dull light from a single eye shines like a beacon. The voice of the titan is at once both guttural and sibilant.
Voice of Rot: "My slumber is disturbed. You, agents of King Kelland, shall redress this offense."
Voice of Rot: "Most that fled your mortal trap were mute beasts. One had reason. It can be judged."
Voice of Rot: "Follow the scent of its homeland’s blood. Find it. Cut its flesh, then do as you please."
Voice of Rot: "Kill it, and it will rot. Send it home, and it will despair. Either, and I shall be appeased."
Phyllis stares, frozen in fear. And maybe missing a few years from her life now. (( THAT’S why she wanted to make a religion check. ))
Gerald: "Uh…"
Aleith|DM: You are now all capable of performing the Detect Planar Energy ritual as if you had the Ritual Casting feat (though it still consumes components).
Gerald‘ blinks a few times slowly, turns his head towards Zane.
Gerald: "…I think the giant thing just hired us for a hit on a zombie…?"
Zane: "Are *you* going to tell it ’no'? Becuase I am not only doing the job, I'm doing it for free and with a smile."
Gerald: "Just… making sure we were all on the same page, it talks weird."
Voice of Rot: "It still lives, but more mind than man."
Phyllis: "… the 'giant thing.' Did you not pay any attention to your parents' storybook tales?"
Gerald‘ turns back to the giant snake, squints up at it.
Gerald: "I don’t know its name! I figure if I'm going to be rude on accident anyway I might as well be kinda vague about it."
Garrett: "It's… it's a deal."
Zane: "I'll be honest, Phyllis. I am too busy being relieved it is not a dragon, and terrified because it's still large enough to be a decent substitute."
Aleith|DM: The eye stares directly at Garrett for a moment, before leaving into the night.
Gerald: "(Someone should ask it for a uh description? I'm not entirely sure what it wants us to kill.)"
Phyllis: "Or … any attention in history classes? It's one of the fey titans that, uh."
Gerald: "Oh wait there it goes."
Aleith|DM: You could try searching for Apet energy…?
Zane: "I think I know."
Gerald‘ waves at it.
Zane was gonna get to that, GM! Jeez!
Gerald: "I’m gunna be honest, Phyllis,"
Gerald: "I have no idea what any of the fey titans outside of ours are."
Ernst: "… this isn't in my job description."
Chandrasekhar listens, carefully - and then nods his head, slowly, in acquiescence. Yes, when a Titan asks for a favour, one… ought to do it. Especially if it just saved your lives.
Phyllis: "It … It is one of ours, though?"
Gerald: "Oh."
Gerald: "… Which one was that?"
Chandrasekhar: "Y- yes."
Phyllis: "The Voice of Rot. … Then you have She Who Writhes, Father of Thunder, Ash Wolf, and Granny Allswell."
Zane: "That last one doesn't sound so bad…"
Chandrasekhar actually looks a little awed. "Honestly, I wasn't… ever expecting to see one of Them with my own eyes."
Gerald: "She Who Writhes is the one in the ocean right?"
Phyllis grabs ahold of Chandra's - I guess his hip, given the height difference - to steady herself. "Yeah."
Gerald: "Yeah that's the only one I know."
Phyllis: "That's more than what I expected from you, honestly."
Chandrasekhar: "Get me to sing you the founding myth of Risur, once we're home." He puts a hand on Phyllis' shoulder, gently. "How long has it been, I wonder?"
Gerald: "I think one of the two in the middle were involved with the mountain and the king selection…? I duno the one in the water is the only one that was ever even tangently related to day to day life."
Garrett: "In short let's just stay on his good side. For us, and Risur."
Garrett: "Mostly us, though."
Gerald: "So I guess that was probably kinda weird and eventful and like, newsworthy, huh?"
Chandrasekhar: "Risur exists by their grace in the first place. And I've always… /heard/ them, in the background, their slumbering songs. If you know where and when to listen." His eyes are gleaming, a little.
Chandrasekhar: "You could say that."
Phyllis: "Also, Ernst. Technically, this falls under keeping the stability between the very beings that let Risur to be a nation here, so … it falls under 'supernatural and magical threats.' Right?"
[OOC] Chandrasekhar: what are the components for the detect fooby bletch ritual
Gerald: "Neat! Suxsby's gunna hate us."
[OOC] Phyllis: just some amount of GP of vaguely defined 'components'
[OOC] Phyllis: I have plenty
Gerald‘ fires a round into a stay zombie, before shouldering his rifle and sliding back down to the ground.
Aleith|DM: …17 gp.
Aleith|DM: That’s pretty cheap, come to think of it.
Garrett: "Saxby already hates us."
Gerald: "That's why it's funny instead of disheartening!"
Ernst: "Why are you asking me? You've been here longer, so if you say so."
Gerald‘ glances up, flashes Garrett a winning smile.
Chandrasekhar: "Well, knowing that we met a Titan is going to really chap her ass."
Garrett` thumbs up!
Phyllis: "That’s what she gets for messing around with us. We get all the good assignments anyway."
Phyllis: "Just … just Titan-placating. Totally a job in demand."
Chandrasekhar: "Let's perform that ritual while the trail's fresh, as it were."
Garrett: "Maybe we should deal with this geas first, then, before filing a report."
Garrett‘ nods at Chandrasekhar.
Zane moves slightly away from the others and pulls a small pinch of dust out of a pouch. "We should not tell her." And he snorts it. He takes a deep breath, his jaw relaxed to let the air roll over his tongue. He can almost taste the different energies in the air, mostly the aftertaste of the Voice of Rot, but there’s a solid thread of something else…
Gerald: "I suppose it's possible she might not read the reports we send to Delft…?"
Aleith|DM: Zane: Perception check
Ernst: "After the last few incidents? I'm reasonably confident that audit was entirely for our sake."
Aleith|DM: Ernst, Phyllis, Arcana checks, btw
Ernst rolled d20+12 and got 10 ( Total: 22.0 )
Zane rolled d20+8 and got 16 ( Total: 24 )
Aleith|DM: Zane: One entity left here over a month ago, trailing a lot of Apet energy. Some time between then and now a group left here, trailing lesser amounts of energy. Several other creatures have left the ziggurat, but they have very faint trails of Apet energy.
Aleith|DM: Ernst: Tracking the trail in the wilderness is fairly easy, but in a city it’ll be harder. Numerous minor energies from magic items and spellcasters will muddle faint trails, but strong bursts of planar energy should be easy to locate. Those might lead to useful trails, but also could produce false leads left by people who just happened to come in contact with the energy.
Aleith|DM: Some magic exists to block planar energy. Reed Macbannin had purification rituals. Certainly whatever magic originally sealed the portal in the ziggurat could conceal or erase a trail.
Zane: "I'm serious. We have been given a job by a titan. I don't want her gloryhounding ways interfering. Also, the biggest source of Apet energy left here a month ago. A while later, a group of much weaker energies left. I am betting that first one is our keystone."
Gerald: "Oh naw I just mean…"
Chandrasekhar: "Almost certainly."
Phyllis: "Could it be the one archaeologist that lived?"
Gerald: "That seems like a thing you don't really leave out of the reports, you know?"
Gerald: "Kind of big."
Garrett: "I was being incredibly facetious- I'm okay with not saying -shit-. But who'd ever tell the titan to never sing?"
Zane: "And yet, that is exactly what we need to do. Out of the written reports, at least. We absolutely need to tell Delft about this, I just don't want it getting passed up to Saxby."
Garrett‘ shrugs. "So- it’ll be later. Way later."
Garrett: "Let's crack this cold case."
Phyllis rolled d20+14 and got 9 ( Total: 23.0 )
Gerald‘ scratches at the back of his head. "I guess we can talk to him about it first, sure."
Aleith|DM: Phyllis: Apet is the source of magical energy used in divination and teleportation, so practitioners of such magic might be false leads.
Gerald: "Can’t see what harm letting everyone in the RHC know about it could do though."
Chandrasekhar: "As revealing of her preferences as it would be to see what she does knowing we've orders from a Titan… I agree with Mr. Bietto."
Phyllis: "… I have my reservations about hiding it from Saxby but not Delft. Either we have total transparency, or none, given how easy information spreads in our halls."
Aleith|DM: It's a bit after sunset. What are your plans?
Garrett: "Mind an inn, first?"
Phyllis: "Please. After today?"
Aleith|DM: There's about 12 hours of bayou between you and an inn.
Gerald: "Maybe some sleep will make the perception thing go away… although …"
[OOC] Garrett: "Yeah, well, the city looked a lot closer with this eye disease."
Gerald: "Man."
Gerald: "I really hope Mister Snake didn't eat our vehicle."
Zane smiles slightly at Phyllis. "It's a test of Delfts trustworthiness, yes. I need to know if he can keep something close to his vest if we ask him to."
Gerald‘ goes to check where they left it.
Aleith|DM: You’re boat's still tied up where you left it, though it's been jostled a bit.
Phyllis: "He's already doing our audit paperwork."
Gerald: "Oh, phew!"
Phyllis: "Though if that's not enough litmus for you…"
Zane: "Not when we have something we legitimately need to hide, no. Thus far we have been completely honest."
Garrett: "We're actually nice fucking people!"
Phyllis nods and waves a finger. "Thus if something were fabricated in those audit reports, we'd know. … But you're right, it would still be under flimsy grounds."
Gerald‘ plops down onto their little boat thing. "Anyway uh all I’m saying is, is someone goes " hey Gerald why is there a crazy ass super powerful ancient orc mummy running around downtown and why are throwing molitives at it', I'm probably gunna go with 'Titans Made Me Do It'. "
[OOC] Gerald: are you throwing^
Phyllis: "In any case. Let's travel as much as we can for the night and make camp along the way."
Aleith|DM: Well, it's already dark. How long do you plan to travel for?
Phyllis: … Or make camp now!
Garrett: "I'll take a first watch. Like we're an adventuring crew or something."
Aleith|DM: But probably a little bit away from the ziggurat, I take it?
Zane: "I'll take the sunrise shift."
[OOC] Garrett: no way we shoudl totally stay in it a bit, it's proven to be reliable shelter…
Phyllis: Whatever's reasonable, probably!
Aleith|DM: Alright. Chandrasekhar, Garrett, Gerald, Zane: Insight checks
Aleith|DM: +2 bonus for Garrett and Gerald
Garrett‘ rolled 1d20+4 and got 2 ( Total: 6 )
Zane rolled d20+3 and got 8 ( Total: 11 )
[OOC] Garrett: well 8 for me but lol
Gerald` rolled d20+6 and got 3 ( Total: 9 )
[OOC] Zane: aw yea we are so on that shit
Aleith|DM: Zane’s Distant Madness remains unchanged, but Garrett and Gerald's increases by one stage. Both of them grant Combat Advantage and suffer a -2 penalty to attack rolls.
Phyllis swaps out [Shield] back for [Glib Tongue] if we're taking an extended rest.
Aleith|DM: You are, yes.
Chandrasekhar rolled d20+0 and got 5 ( Total: 5 )
[OOC] Phyllis: hm. Can Ernst make any Heal checks to assist with recovery?
[OOC] Chandrasekhar: +12
Aleith|DM: Teak: You're fine. No more Distant Madness
Aleith|DM: It's amazing what a good night's rest can do for you.
Aleith|DM: Ernst can make a Heal Check to replace someone's roll, yes.
Aleith|DM: If it's higher than the Insight roll, yes.
[OOC] Zane: fix Garrett first, I think. he spends a lot of time in melee, having him granting CA the whole time is a terrible plan
[OOC] Ernst: Back
Ernst rolled d20+10 and got 2 ( Total: 12.0 ) for heal check
[OOC] Phyllis: Well it's higher than a 6.
Aleith|DM: Garrett's state remains unchanged instead of getting worse.
Ernst rolled d20+10 and got 11 ( Total: 21.0 ) for Gerald
Aleith|DM: Only one person per rest, sorry.
[OOC] Ernst: RIP
Aleith|DM: Alright, Phyllis, do you want to make some Nature checks to navigate the bayou on your way back? 3 of them?
Phyllis rolled 3#d20+10(1) and got 16 ( Total: 26.0 ) for sure thing
Also rolled 3#d20+10(2) and got 2 [Total: 12.0 (Low), Avg: 2.00]
Also rolled 3#d20+10(3) and got 8 [Total: 18.0 (Low), Avg: 8.00]
Total: 56.0, Avg: 8.67
Gerald: "NOPE and also Nope, and futher, nope, fuck everything, I am done." Gerald shuts his eyes a few minutes after waking up, lays back down on the boat.
Phyllis also prior to that tries some amateur therapy on Gerald. [Heal?]
Aleith|DM: Sure.
Phyllis rolled d20+5 and got 1 ( Total: 6.0 ) for rip gerald
Aleith|DM: Rip indeed.
Aleith|DM: You get a bit lost in the early afternoon, and the sun's already set by the time you get into the town of Agate.
Phyllis: "How long has it been now? Three days in this part of the country?"
Garrett: "Beautiful place, can't wait until it's all paved over."
Chandrasekhar: "Now, now."
Gerald‘ is still basically refusing to open his eyes. Only does so long enough to somehow clambering ontp Chandrasekhar’s back and hangs there.
Gerald: "Too long."
Zane: "I could live here. We've already made friends with the most important neighbor."
Phyllis: "There's a sleeping car on the train, right?"
Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar, Garrett, Gerald, make another Insight check.
Chandrasekhar makes a pretty good pack mule, and he's feeling better so he doesn't seem to mind.
Aleith|DM: Other people can make Heal checks if they wish to help
Chandrasekhar rolled d20+12 and got 17 ( Total: 29 )
Aleith|DM: wait not Chandrasekhar
[OOC] Phyllis: Not Zane?
Garrett‘ rolled 1d20+6 and got 15 ( Total: 21 )
Aleith|DM: Zane
Aleith|DM: Chandra can use the 17 for a heal check though.
Gerald` rolled d20+6 and got 18 ( Total: 24 )
Aleith|DM: Hmmm okay Zane gets the heal check I guess
Aleith|DM: Gerald is back to Stage 1, Zane and Garrett are fine.
Phyllis does, at least, try to [Detect] some Apet [Planar Energy] in the meantime.
Aleith|DM: Perception check.
Phyllis rolled d20+5 and got 20 ( Total: 25.0 )
Aleith|DM: A boat has a large amount of Apet energy. Asking the owner, someone rented it a couple weeks ago and came back a few days later.
Phyllis: "Do you remember what they at least looked like?"
Phyllis: "Hell, even a gender?"
Aleith|DM: He only spoke to the person that rented it, but she was a female tiefling.
Aleith|DM: The boat was large enough for several people.
Phyllis: "I see. Thank you for your time." Well, that at least narrows it down to a description…
Aleith|DM: Staying in Agate for the night?
Zane runs a hand over his head and sighs. "I dont suppose they were kind enough to tell you where they were headed?"
Phyllis: We can sleep on the trip over, right?
Aleith|DM: It’s a day's walk from here to Bole.
Aleith|DM: Then you can take the train back to Flint.
[OOC] Phyllis: guh. Right. Sure sleep the madness off
[OOC] Garrett: probably staying then. this is the bed and breakfast we're looking for
[OOC] Garrett: unless it's like 8 am or something
Aleith|DM: It's like 8PM after asking around
[OOC] Garrett: yup beddin' down
Aleith|DM: Gerald, make an Insight check. Ernst, Heal check?
Gerald‘ rolled d20+6 and got 1 ( Total: 7 )
Ernst rolled d20+10 and got 15 ( Total: 25.0 )
Aleith|DM: Gerald is better again by the next morning.
Aleith|DM: Fall 8, 500 AOV
Phyllis: Walking to Bole, probably!
Aleith|DM: Yep. You get there late afternoon.
Phyllis: "May as well keep triangulating our quarry."
[OOC] Phyllis: Detect Planar Energy: Apet] again?
Garrett` nods.
Aleith|DM: Sure. Trail leads to the train station, then heads down the tracks towards Flint.
Aleith|DM: There’s some scattered pockets around the city as well, but they're centered in shops and a few homes.
Phyllis: "Not much reason for our suspects to stay in the area. I don't think the dig's benefactor stays here."
Garrett: "At least this trail's starting off easy."
Garrett: "Not that they'd have a lot of choice if they wanted to reach civilization…"
Zane: "I'm sure it'll get more exciting quickly."
Chandrasekhar: "Not looking forward to hearing the signal in the noise once we get to the city."
Zane: "Mm, I am definitely leaving that to the better trained amonf us, yes."
Aleith|DM: It's a couple hours until the overnight train. Doing anything else? Staying the night and leaving in the morning? Taking the late train?
Ernst seems to be spending most of his free time tinkering with Stocke and not much else.
Garrett: "Here's hoping not." He produces and eats a banana.
Gerald‘ isn’t doing a whole lot other than cleaning his guns, either. Fucking swamp humidity.
Zane is all about the late train back, that way they can travel at night and sleep at the same time.
Garrett‘ can do that, and pretty much instantly hops up into the top bed, not unlike a cat.
Phyllis also votes for the night train. But aside from that…
Phyllis: Nothin’. At least, nothing she can think of until they get back to Flint.
Aleith|DM: It's early in the morning when the train pulls into flint on Autumn 9th.
[OOC] Garrett: is the city on fire
Aleith|DM: It looks like when you left it.
[OOC] Phyllis: I roll to disbelieve
[OOC] Phyllis: nah not really
Phyllis does immediately attempt another [Detect Planar Energy] here. How bad is the noise?
Aleith|DM: From the Flint train station, the energy trail is impossible to follow precisely, because it doubles back on itself many times. Clearly the entity has been in town for a while.
