Zg Session 27

Xambria: "Oh, I got it! Sijhen doesn’t care about the train because it plans to leave, and bring an invasion back. It planned to get captured, and I’m not really in control. Oh, bloody—"
A sudden wave of extraplanar energy washes over you, pouring out of the stone walls to the south. You stagger at the sudden sense of dislocation, and as you struggle to regain your senses, every inanimate object around you not carried or worn turns impossibly translucent. You can see through stone, down to the sewer, out to the under-construction subrail tunnel, sideways to the band of black-clad murderers sneaking into the basement, up to the ground floor and all your equally confused coworkers.
And then the world turns transparent, nothing but contour lines and faded textures. The sight is too much for your mind to grasp, and vertigo drops you to your knees. But you do see one thing clearly. Xambria stands, jumps into the ceiling, digs fingers into invisible handholds, and pulls herself up through solid stone to the ground floor.
Your vertigo passes, and the world has started to darken back to translucence, and further still to solidity. But you can feel another wave coming, and for a moment, when everything was transparent, you saw monsters flying through the building above.
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 26:Garrett | 25:Gerald | 21:Zane | 19:Phyllis | 11:Ernst | 10:Delft | 7:Chandrasekhar |
Aleith|DM: Garrett?
Gerald‘ puts a hand to a wall as he takes a few seconds to steady himself and get his baring back.
Garrett: "Oh, damn-"
Phyllis whirls on Delft, eyeing his reaction.
Gerald: "Yup. Today is definitely a shoot to kill kind of day."
Aleith|DM: He seems to be reeling from the disorientation, worse than the rest of you.
Zane sways and shakes his head, clearing the disorientation. "I think I really am going to kill someone tonight. Sorry, boss."
Delft: "No, this is an emergency. I’ll-validate it. Monsters can go to hell. Try to take at least some intruders alive, though."
Phyllis: That's good enough to sate her for now. She's had her suspicions, but they don't seem well-founded.
Gerald: "We'll see."
Garrett: "What a mess." With that, he hustles off. [Double Move]
Chandrasekhar: "Dear goddess."
Aleith|DM: Gerald?
Chandrasekhar staggers to his feet. He really should have seen this coming, but why would Sijhen want to be -here-?
Gerald‘ runs up the stairs and stops in front of the door [Double Move], before taking a deep bretah and preparing to lay waste to a lot of mother fuckers. [Cobra Spiting Stance]
Aleith|DM: Zane!
Aleith|DM: Door’s closed, would take a minor to open it by the way.
Aleith|DM: I'll let someone do it during their move action if they have the movement to get past Gerald, however.
Zane runs up the stairs behind the others, rolling past Gerald with ease in the confined space to hit the door and roll into the hallway. [double move, minor]
Aleith|DM: Zane, turns out one of those Eyes you found back at the ziggurat is in front of you when you get out of the stairwell.
Aleith|DM: Phyllis?
Zane: "Shit, we've got contact in the hall."
Phyllis moves up the stairs and places her [Mage Hand] just outside the door.
Gerald: "S'why I didn't open it yeah."
[OOC] Phyllis: Double Move, Minor
Aleith|DM: The eye of madness sneds a Horrid Hallucination towards Zane!

Aleith|DM: Chandrasekhar?
Chandrasekhar runs towards the staircase and then displaces himself up the rest of it, which is honestly his favourite thing to do with that ability, then [Divine Challenge]s the eye.
Aleith|DM: There's a couple of staffers in the hallway, huddled in fear.
Ernst also activates his [Repulsion Armor] for good measure and +7 THP.
Chandrasekhar: "Try to evacuate as quickly and safely as you can! You may want to consider using the windows, though!"
Aleith|DM: Alright! Round 2! The walls turn translucent. You can see up to the 2nd level, and there seems to be another of those Worm Maws lurking in the hallway there.
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 27:Eye of Madness B | 26:Garrett | 25:Gerald | 21:Zane | 19:Phyllis | 16:Eye of Madness A | 11:Ernst | 10:Delft | 7:Chandrasekhar |
Gerald‘ frowns as Chandrasekhar pops up in front of him. "I wish I could do that."
Ernst: "If only, right?"
Aleith|DM: Looks like there’s another of those eyes of madness in one of the guard rooms, and the two guards in there charge each other and take themselves out.
Chandrasekhar blinks a few times, disoriented, then notices _all of this other mohya_ fucking around and says something rude under his breath.

Ernst chews at his lip. "Do you think I should be rushing Saxby's office with all of you guys or should I stop all our coworkers from dying on the floor? I don't want you to jump into more than you can chew and not have me around to patch you up."

Zane: "Shit."
Phyllis: "Sunrods at the ready?"
Gerald: "Hmm."
Chandrasekhar brandishes his glowing-ass sword, as one does.
Aleith|DM: The gaslit lamps above Gerald and Zane explode with frigid energy. They each take 9 cold damage! The staffer goes down! [Shatter the Light]
Aleith|DM: Ernst?
Ernst drops down his robot on the stairs before nodding. "You're gonna make sure all our prisoners don't find a way to break out during this." He then moves towards [Eye of Madness B] as his robot goes downstairs. He fires a [Magic Weapon] at it.

Aleith|DM: Delft runs up the stairs, yelling, "alright men, snap out of it! We've got trouble afoot, so help your fellows out of the building and let us handle it!"
Gerald‘ squints at the ceiling. "Honestly don’t remember. Been a busy few months."
Phyllis: "I'm bitter. They kept doing the same thing to my conjurations."
Phyllis: "Mages hold grudges over counterspells."

Phyllis gestures between the killer and the eye.
Ernst: "I think they're just here to fuck us up."
Garrett: "Everyone wants a piece of us today, I swear."
Ernst: "They aren't with Xambria."
Chandrasekhar: "Clusterfuck error in our favour. Don't question it."
Ernst: "I mean, if I saw my enemies HQ going to shit I'd certainly jump in head first."

Gerald: "Zane, want I should mow these guys down or priority on the brainpire?"
Chandrasekhar: "You can certainly have fun trying."

Aleith|DM: But, I mean, so are you…?
Gerald: "Ya'll catch up."
Aleith|DM: Yeah sure I won't call for an Atheltics check like that.
Chandrasekhar: "That wasn't intensely weird at all."
Aleith|DM: The killers seem a bit taken aback by this.
Killer B: "…what?"
Aleith|DM: The shadow walker just raises an eyebrow.
Phyllis: "That isn't your doing?"
Chandrasekhar: "Told you this wasn't amateur hour, gentlemen."
Aleith|DM: You see another killer head into the other guard room and take out a guard.
Aleith|DM: Zane?
Aleith|DM: You hear another voice in the darkness. "Wait, this isn't the normal thing when you guys come through the gate?"

Aleith|DM: Don't ask. Although the killers seem to have a Whole Lotta Knives, too. He clatters heavily to the ground as he drops and several knives fall out onto the floor.
Aleith|DM: Yes, that's the name of their melee basic attack.
Zane flicks one of the scattered knives up off the floor with the toe of his boot, catching it deftly. "Run. Or die."
Aleith|DM: Killer A heads into the morgue's corridor.
Aleith|DM: Phyllis?
Phyllis: "I like that you're all nice and huddled up."
Chandrasekhar: "This is gonna be good."
