Zg Session 37

The engineer, Steeg Leon, checks his watch. "Fifteen minutes out from Sid Minos now. Right on time." He checks the engine, beginning his procedures to eventually bring the train to a stop in the upcoming enclave.
Stocke glances up from his book before nodding. He puts it away and stands up stretching.
Steeg: "I still think it's a big strange that we go to this offshoot to Sid Minos instead of heading straight to Vendricce. It'd be a few hours later, but we still could've made it in one day."
Stocke: "Is that the route you normally take?"
Steeg: "Nah. The Avery Coast line runs to Sid Minos day 5, then loops around the bay to Vendricce on day 6. Always been like that."
Steeg: "Probably politics to make the train divert here."
Stocke chews at his lip before glancing out of the window.
Light rain obscures your view, but the air is clean, thick with the fresh scent of the sea and only the train's own smoke to ruin it.
AveryCoast: Not that you have much to worry about at the front.
AveryCoast: The door to the fuel car behind you open, and through it comes Conductor Xorin, followed by Ms. 'Bree' Kaldeckis.
Stocke gives a nod to the group.
Xorin: "Steeg, do you mind if Ms. Kaldeckis comes up front for the arrival? Says she wants to watch."
Steeg shakes his head slightly. "Nah. Long as she stays out of the way. Welcome, miss."
Stocke: "It's not all that exciting up here, let me assure you. But feel free."
Bree watches Steeg work one of the levers down slightly, as the train decelerates slightly. "Gradual deceleration, right? I'm surprised you don't start a bit sooner."
Steeg: "Don't want to give the passengers too much of a shock. The schedule's designed for slow and steady braking. Can't have everyone tossed about like a couple days ago."
Stocke: "Tossed about is one way to put it, sure."
AveryCoast: He grimaces. "Wish I'd just roared through that barricade back then, 'specially since it turned out to be smoke 'n mirrors, but I guess they made the 'explosives' hard to miss on purpose."
Bree turns to Stocke. "And you're the one that managed to drive off the bandits then, right?"
The gas-light lamp in the locomotive flickers red for a couple seconds, then flickers back to a more normal colour. A gust of wind?
Stocke nods. "That was me, yeah. I wasn't about to let them take advantage of a situation like that. There are quite a few people that would have a sour taste in their mouth if their cargo was -' He pauses before frowning. " Hrm. "
Bree: "And you had some robot helping you, I heard? Did you make it, or is it someone else's design?"
Stocke: "I made it myself. Started off as a hobby mostly. Nowadays I'm hoping others would also be interested in using them. You can project your attacks through them from a distance it's a handy thing to have."
Stocke gestures at the light. "I take it that's not normal, Steeg? We may want to examine the cause when we pull in."
Steeg: "Sorry, what?" He looks at the lamp. "Seems normal to me. What happened?"
Stocke: "The light flickered red. As far as I'm aware that wasn't a diagnostics error."
Steeg: "That's odd. Colour doesn't usually change that much. Not just the wind, you think?"
Stocke: "If it was just flickering, certainly."
AveryCoast: The guard nearby shakes his head. "No, I saw it too. It was definitely red for a couple seconds."
Steeg: "Huh. I heard they did some work on the train overnight. Wonder if that had somethign to do with it."
Steeg: "I'll keep a careful eye on the engine as we go in, but the lamp's got its own oil supply, so it shouldn't affect it."
Stocke frowns. "Do you have the logs? Everything was operating to standard after we did tune ups from the Malice Beast. I'm not sure what would have needed to be changed."
Steeg hmms as he checks the shelf beside him.
Steeg: "Just some standard maintenance steps. Nothing beyond the norm…but…"
Steeg: "I wouldn't have heard about it if that was it. Suspicious…"
Stocke glances over at Bree and the guards. He's probably talking to Bree though. "Any insight on this matter?"
AveryCoast: The guard shrugs, shaking his head.
Bree: "That does sound strange. I must've missed the lamp changing, but extra maintenance…?"
Steeg: "We'll have to take an extra look at it once we pull in. You wanna assist again, Mr. Alistel?"
Stocke: "Regardless, even a simpleton knows that the engine and the lamp are mutually exclusive. If there was an issue with the lights then one would probably want to inspect the lamp. How long until we reach our destination?"
Steeg checks his watch again, and adjusts the brakes again. "About 5 more minutes now."
Stocke makes his way to the side of the train before poking his head out. Everything looks normal, right?
AveryCoast: Mostly.
AveryCoast: There's this purple light coming from the top of the locomotive, though…
AveryCoast: Meanwhile…
The gas-light lamp in your room flickers red, then starts to deepen to purple, and the sound of rain swiftly fades away. Outside, the sky begins to turn black.
Jeremy: "?"
Hilda: "I could have sworn we were out of the Malice Lands."
Jeremy: "….Yeah same."
Jack: "…night sure did fall fast, didn't it."
Ananth: "…shit."
Ananth‘ looks out the window.
Jeremy: "I wonder that lady know’s what up - or do you, Ananth?"
AveryCoast: The sky seems filled with ash, and the landscape outside looks like it has been abandoned and decayed for centuries.
Ananth: "We're not- shit, Phyllis, come here."
Jack: "To be fair, I'd leave this off the cruise brochure for sure."
ChefBatali stops cleaning up the serving station and frowns out the window. "Well, that's never good."
Hilda raises an eyebrow. "'Hilda.'" But she complies. If Chandra's asking for her expertise, that can't be good.
Ananth‘ pauses. Swears under his breath. "Hilda. Whatever. This- this isn’t good."
AveryCoast: Doris isn't even at the piano anymore, but there's a purple light glowing from the underside of your station, Mr. Batali.
Jack‘ attempts to leave the cabin.
ChefBatali bends down to look under his counter.
AveryCoast: There’s a rune scratched in there, glowing purple.
ChefBatali: "Balls."
AveryCoast: The same rune is glowing above the doorframe of your 1st-class suite.
AveryCoast: And on the back of those coins you got from Bree.
Hilda: "What exactly am I looking at."
Hilda: "There's a lot."
Jack‘ also leaves the coin on his seat as he leaves.
Jeremy: "Huh."
AveryCoast: You reach for the door knob and your hand passes through it.
Jeremy: "Huh."
Jeremy: "I didn’t know you could turn insubstantial!"
AveryCoast: The sky outside-even the sun-seems a bit dimmer.
Jack: "I can't… but my spirit can."
Hilda: "So the lanterns, for one. We saw this before."
Jack: "We may be dead, y'all."
Jeremy: "Bummer."
Ananth: "The, uh. The… where are we? Like, /where/ where. For real where." Has she ever seen him this scared, actually letting it show?
AveryCoast: It's common folklore that the land of the dead lies on the far side of the Bleak Gate, and that ghosts almost never stray more than three miles from where they died.
AveryCoast: And this doesn't feel like the Bleak Gate.
ChefBatali can no longer pick up that knife on the counter.
Jack: "Give it a try, Jer."
ChefBatali: "Goat balls."
Jeremy: "Oh man I wonder if I can -" Gerald turns around in his seat, then attempts to push his head through the wall and glance into the cabin on the other side.
AveryCoast: All of sudden, Doris appears beside you, Mr. Batali.
Hilda: "I'm not one hundred percent certain, but if I had to guess … the lanterns took us to a different plane."
Doris: "Heavens!"
ChefBatali: "… Color me shocked. Hello, Doris."
Doris: "Where are we, Anthony? All of a sudden it looked like you fainted-when I went to check on you, all of a sudden you were standing here instead."
Ananth‘ stares, desperately, at the unreal sun, his resolve faltering and shattering into fragments, visibly, on his face, before picking itself up, mending at the seams. "We need to stop the train. Somehow. Despite being… dead." Beat, then immediately: "Where in literal hell is our chef?"
AveryCoast: Jeremy: You peer through, and see a frantic Damata on the other side.
Hilda rolls around the possibilities in her head. No islands in the sky. No permanent storm of sand and dust. The only plane it -could- match is the one we don’t know much of. [Arcana or Religion to know for sure? I mean I think it's obvious as a player but]
Jack‘ frowns as he was hoping Gerald would facesmack himself into the wall.
Jeremy: "Hey Damata!"
AveryCoast: It’s probably Nem, yeah.
Hilda: "Do we need to stop thet rain, or just the mechanism that - well. That took us to Nem?"
Jeremy: "We may or may not be dead - I'm feelin' 'probably not dead but fell into some weird overlapping plane' myself."
AveryCoast: What rain?
ChefBatali: "Hm. I think… I think maybe you ought not to have done that, Doris. Though your concern is touching."
[OOC] Hilda: *The train not thet rain
AveryCoast: Ah, yes.
Ananth: "The distinction between 'dead' and 'in the place where dead things go' is frankly academic."
Doris: "Oh. Oh! Do you know what happened?" She places her hand on her chest as she looks around, scared.
Jack: "At some point theoretical planar analysis becomes practical, yeah."
ChefBatali pats her hand. Ish. "Not… precisely? But I have an idea, and it puts us in a very awkward spot.
Jack: "Watch your asses for Luc and that whoever he was with." He wanders into the hallway and towards the dining car, still trying to use doors like he can't glide through them.
ChefBatali: "I think someone is trying to kill me, and a few other people that were involved in a scuffle last night at the arena."
Jeremy: "On the bright side, good thing your family isn't here?"
Hilda holds her hands on her head and waves at Jack and Jeremy. "One of you two. There was something about a lantern before, right? The coins are glowing, Luc did something to the coins, Luc had -something- to do with a lantern that I'm trying to fully recall - hey!"
Jeremy: "I Suspect we may be in for some trouble though, so you might wanna crack open that case with the totems again."
Damata nods, slowly. "I'll…take a look."
Jack‘ shrugs at Hilda before powerwalking away.
Hilda: "Keep an eye out for that lantern!"
AveryCoast: Well, the door opens if you want it too, but closes behind you after several seconds, Jack.
Jeremy: "Since like, all the help we can get if that is the case." Gerald then pulls his head back into the room. "Lamp what now? Oh. Uh."
Jeremy: "One: That seemed a hell of a lot like that time everything got weird and fucked up at the office. You know, when the general manager was caught stealing from the company?"
Jeremy: "And two: that secret weapon project that was making water errupt out in the distance when used."
Hilda: "More details than that? How did it work, do you remember?"
Jeremy: "Hell if I know I’m not a wizard on the cutting edge of magic items used as large scale weapons."
Damata reaches for his case, and can't seem to grab the totems. He comes to knock on your door, and his hand passes through. "I can't seem to grab the totems. Help?"
Jeremy: "Light in the lamp went weird, shit happened."
Jeremy: "There was some kind of key word I think?"
Jeremy‘ pulls the door open, glances over at Damata.
Ananth` pushes off from one wall and goes -sailing- through the air towards the dining car. *Fuck* physics, to be honest.
Jeremy: "Okay so the thing with being a weird not-actual-ghost -"
AveryCoast: Jack: you step into the next car, and are confronted with several spectres wielding scythes.
Jeremy: "Is it’s all in your mind, you got be like " okay I'm really gunna fucking pick this thing up " when you do it, otherwise you just slip through."
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 27:Reaper A | 27:Reaper E | 25:Zane | 25:Reaper D | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 16:Reaper C | 14:Phyllis | 12:Reaper B |
AveryCoast: What do you do?
[OOC] Jack: opposite way aleith haha
AveryCoast: oh that dining car
[OOC] Jack: yeah I'm meeting up with my buddy first :>
AveryCoast: oh okay
AveryCoast: okay not in battle mode quite yet
Jeremy: "Okay so lets practise a bit. I'm gunna hand you this gun, and you're gunna wanna hold onto it. Because I doubt you have a weapon otherwise." Gerald then picks up his rifle, and offers it towards Damata.
Hilda grunts. "Whatever. It's probably the key and we'll wing it."
Hilda tries interacting with a doorknob via [Mage Hand] just to experiment.
AveryCoast: It opens, sure.
Hilda tries picking up a sunrod from her pack nearby!
AveryCoast: Damata tries again, after managing to grab your rifle, and comes back half a minute later with the totems.
AveryCoast: You grab it!
Hilda tries grabbing it with her actual hand. Still just kinda phasing through?
Ananth‘ keeps on sailing down the dining car, waving to Jack as he scoots on by. Maybe sound carries through walls here, too? "HEY CHEF BATALI CAN YOU HEAR ME."
AveryCoast: Nah, you can grab it.
Jeremy: "Awesome! You might wanna go back to the dining cart and get one to Jack and anyone else back there too."
Hilda: Oh
Jack` chuckles. "I don’t want to get -too- used to that."
AveryCoast: Ananth and Jack make their way to the last car, the lounge, where the chef is consoling the piano player.
Jack: "Ah, boy, that's unfortunate."
Jeremy‘ steps out into the hallway, peering out the windows just in case this is like that weird forest appearing in the middle of the fortress and the gloom and doom isn’t on both sides.
ChefBatali: "I dont suppose you know how to fight to you, dear?"
ChefBatali may be kinda bad at this.
Doris shakes her head, sniffling.
Ananth‘ sails through the lounge door, then halts on a dime in midair, righting himself. "OKAY, so, there is some very bad-news mohya happening." Pause. Why’s she- damnit.
Jack: "Yeah you may want to sit tight for this."
AveryCoast: Well, you can't fly, Ananth. Just walk through walls. Try not to fall through the floor, though.
Jeremy: "Hmhmhm."
ChefBatali: "Guys, hi, you remember Doris. She decided to valiantly come to my aid when I fainted, and is stuck here with us."
Jack: "There are worse people to be stuck with."
ChefBatali: "She does have a marvelous voice, yeah."
Jack‘ chuckles. "I meant us."
Hilda steps outside of her room, quirks an eyebrow, and peers right to left, trying to sense the source of whatever magic brought them here. [Arcana to sense the presence of magic? Or at least a direction]
ChefBatali: "Oh, well, that too I suppose."
Jeremy: "So you reckon you got some kind of spell in your books that could, I don’t know, pull us back to normal or something Ms. Hilda?"
Jack: "Don't you worry, we'll be back under the blue skies and walled enclaves as soon as possible."
AveryCoast: Well, I mean, if you open the window, or even stick your head through the wall, I guess, you can see a purple light way down toward the front of the train.
Jack‘ kind of sticks his head out and looks ar- yeah that.
Hilda: Well yes but this is Phyllis. Habits are hard to break!
Jeremy: "By the way giant ball of purple light at the front of the train." Because yeah why *wouldn’t* he do that.
AveryCoast: There's some magical energy off in the direction of the front of the train, then, Hilda.
Hilda does some mental math before responding to Jeremy. "Oh. Perhaps if we weren't … on a train."
Jeremy: "Fair enough."
Ananth‘ doesn’t fly, then. That's boring. DEFINITELY isn't bothering with walls, though. "Not sure if sticking with us is the safest or least safe option but we'll work that out."
Jeremy: "Should I go investigate?"
ChefBatali ponders. Reaches behind the food counter. Emerges with a bastard sword.
ChefBatali: "Probably shouldn't stay here, if nothing else.
Hilda: "There are tales about a three mile limit that spirits can roam from where they died. It might be from our corpses proper, it might be from where we died in general. I don't want to chance it."
Jack‘ pulls his his head back in. "Something’s up near the front."
AveryCoast: The train is still moving, underneath you.
Hilda: "There's probably something, but given the rate we're travelling, we'd … hit three miles before I finish casting anything."
Jeremy: "Saw it! Check it out?"
AveryCoast: It's slowing down, though, gradually.
[OOC] Jeremy: wait n/m that
Jeremy: "Oh man that sounds exciting."
ChefBatali: "It's something, at least. Hilda, stay close to Ananth if anything unpleasant happens."
Hilda is way the hell over by Jeremy two cars over, Batali!
ChefBatali was talking to Jack! Gosh.
Hilda: "Let's, uh, grab the others at least. As much as I'd like to split up and investigate, there's … not much room to split up in a linear railroad like this."
[OOC] ChefBatali: also oops wrong name! I meant Doris
Jeremy‘ sticks his head out the window, cups his hands around his mouth. "C’MON JACK LETS ROLL!"
Ananth‘ nods to Zane and starts heading back towards the car with the others. Hopefully they’ll have come up with a plan by the time they get back?
ChefBatali brings up the rear, trying to keep the helpless noncombatant safe.
Jack‘ hustles forward.
Jeremy: "Okay so."
AveryCoast: Alright. You get into the rearmost second-class car, and spot some spectres wielding scythes ahead of you.
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 27:Reaper A | 27:Reaper E | 25:Zane | 25:Reaper D | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 16:Reaper C | 14:Phyllis | 12:Reaper B |
AveryCoast: We’ll call this….round 25?
AveryCoast: 26, rather
Jeremy: "There's some kinda weird light thing, and we're gunna go check it out, and I'm gunna shoot the fuck out of anything that doesn't look friendly between here and there. Cool? Cool."
Jack: "Damata! Whoof, sorry, but it looks like you took a bit of collateral damage, here."
ChefBatali: "Consider it me calling in my debt. Means the rest of your vacation is worry free!"
Jack‘ hustles forward and hurls daggers down the hallway. [Cloud of Steel]
Hilda catches the others up. "Short version: We’re in what's most likely Nem. We're on a time limit. Find how we got here, and go the other way."
Jack‘ rolled 3#1d20+19(1) and got 12 ( Total: 31 ) for vs AC, First Strike, totem, reaper A B C

AveryCoast: All of you?
Jack‘ picks himself up and hustles forward. [Stand] [Move]
Hilda moves further ahead again, poking her head out to see how many cars down the big purple thing is.
Ananth` forges on into the next cabin!
AveryCoast: Looks like it’s near the front.
ChefBatali waits for Damata and Doris before moving on.
Jeremy‘ movin’ on up
AveryCoast: They catch up to you.
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 28!
Jack‘ goes between the cars and then climbs up to get a full panoramic view.
Jeremy` keeps hustlin’ forward.
AveryCoast: From the roof, you can more clearly see the source of the light-seems like something embedded in the back of the locomotive's stack, illuminating the area around it in purple.
Jack: "Well, shit."
[OOC] Jack: can I phase back down to the ground
Jeremy: "What's up?"
AveryCoast: Sure
Jack: "Something's right behind the smokestack of the train."
ChefBatali: "… Oh, then we should probably hurry."
Jack: "Yeah we got a run ahead of us."
Hilda continues on, turning possibilities over in her head. Not sure what the runes had to do with it exactly. Were the ones on the coins made, uh, mechanically? She'd have to ask Garrett what he saw. [Double move and … arcana?]
Jeremy: "Hm. I wonder if I should get my rifle back…"
AveryCoast: Mechanically?
AveryCoast: Done by hand with a tool.
Hilda: Well, she didn't ask!
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 29!
Jack: "Someone look for an emergency brake or something!"
Jeremy‘ heads up to the rooftop and continues sprinting.
Jack: "Don’t trains have those, like a rudder stop or… fuck if I know I'm not a train-ist."
Jeremy: "I 'uno, goin' to make myself an enticing target."
Jeremy‘ wooooosh.
AveryCoast: Jack, Hilda, Ananth, Anthony?
Jack` zoom.
Ananth` runs into the car before Hilda, just in case there’s something horrible waiting for them.
ChefBatali pops through the roof and hauls it forward
AveryCoast: Phyllis, as you move into car 13, you see four spirits standing still in the middle of the car.
Hilda: "More trouble!"
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
Hilda: "Well. Maybe."
Hilda looks around. Are they reacting to her?
AveryCoast: It's darkened enough outside now that the light is just Dim now, unless you have a light source.
AveryCoast: Did you, uh, activate that Sunrod already?
Hilda has darkvision, so isn't it just bright to her?
AveryCoast: you have low-light vision
Jeremy: "Ugggh."
Jeremy: "Zane never be human."
AveryCoast: so yeah you're fine still….
Jeremy: "This whole 'can't see good in the dark' shit blows."
AveryCoast: Garrett?
Jack‘ shuffles forward, goes "Oh hell no-" and hurls his magic dagger at the closer Vestige. [RBA]
Jack` rolled 1d20+16 and got 7 ( Total: 23 )
AveryCoast: Hit! [KO!] You vaguely recognize it as one of the passengers that was killed by the Malice Beast when you got to this car a couple of days ago…
AveryCoast: Hmmm wait
AveryCoast: no
AveryCoast: The dagger phases through it
AveryCoast: but you still recognize it.
AveryCoast: It still looks at the floor, seeming to ignore you.
AveryCoast: Zane?
Jack: "Fine by me."
ChefBatali continues to sprint over the tops of cars. Being human must suck!
Jeremy: "Fair warning,"
AveryCoast: Chandra?
Jeremy: "I’m about to start shooting the giant ball of light."
Jack: "I ain't stopping you!"
Hilda: "What. JEREMY NO."
Jeremy: "Oh no that was for Zane's who's now in the line of fir - huh?"
Hilda: "Let me at least take a look at it before you go damaging it!"
Jeremy: "I thought you said we were on a time limit????"
Jeremy: "And your legs are really small."
Ananth‘ double-moves into the group of Vestiges and then [Challenge]s them all. If their deaths are on anyone’s hands, they're on his for not being able to save them…
As you step close to the spirits, their blank-faced heads turn to you. Their bodies flare up with spectral energy and they lunge forward, both arms extended.

Hilda does too!
ChefBatali likewise.

AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 35!
Hilda makes a [Light] around Zane and keeps moving!
Jack‘ zooms! "What a bright idea!"
Jeremy` will slowly progress down the train then, moving a bit and taking aim again so that he can stay read to shoot as soon as there’s a target lit up.
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: The world fades to darkness.
AveryCoast: Good thing Zane's lit up.
ChefBatali keeps pace with Jack.
Hilda: "Sunrods out if you can keep 'em?"
Jack‘ is glad Zane is the light source.
Jack: "Ah yeah, that’s also a great idea."
AveryCoast: Well, really. You'd only need 1 sunrod.
Hilda: Well!!!
AveryCoast: It's a 20 square radius or something ridiculous like that.
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 37!
Jack‘ takes a second to crack a sunrod of his own, sliding it into his back pocket, before running to catch up with Zane.
Hilda also moves!
Jeremy` still slow moving in the ready stance until Zane or Garret spots something.
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 14:Phyllis |
Hilda: "So - I’m curious if it needs to be operated instead of damaged. Whatever it is."
AveryCoast: As Garret moves closer, another figure appears, flying above the fuel car-this one dark.
Jeremy: "Finally."
Jack: "Oh boy."
AveryCoast: Zane?
AveryCoast: I'm guessing a double-move?
ChefBatali keeps on running yeah
AveryCoast: Same with Chandra and Phyllis?

AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 11:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 40!
AveryCoast: Go, all of you.
Hilda double-moves up to hereabouts!
Jack‘ rushes forward!
Gerald` moves up those 6 spaces needed to target the smoke stack and keeps his aim up.
[OOC] Hilda: Wait did I forget totem thp or what
AveryCoast: Maybe?
AveryCoast: Battle Order: | 28:Garrett | 25:Zane | 22:Chandrasekhar | 19:Gerald | 11:Phyllis |
AveryCoast: Round 41!
Jack: "Alright so, Hilda - plan of attack here?"
Hilda walks up to the stack and sees what this is all about.
AveryCoast: Alright. From Gerald’s description, it kinda matches up with what he says. There seems to be an eight-sided lantern built into the stack of the locomotive.
AveryCoast: It's glowing with purple light, without a flame.
AveryCoast: It's cracked.
Hilda raises an eyebrow. Anything she can do to repair it in a short amount of time?
AveryCoast: Doesn't look like it. You can't even see a way to turn it off.
AveryCoast: Not without breaking it, anyway.
AveryCoast: Round 42?
ChefBatali breaks that shit.
AveryCoast: And you all wake up, back in your bodies.
Hilda has one thing she wants to try before resorting to that. What's, uh … what's in a sunrod? If witch oil is from the Bleak Gate, and - oh well then.
AveryCoast: Some of you are slightly tired, but otherwise uninjured. [Wounds manifest as fatigue and soreness]
ChefBatali smiles at Doris. "We've got to stop meeting like this. People are going to talk."
Doris: "Oh my!" She picks herself up. "Mr. Griento and I fell behind a bit, but you must've done something up at the front, right?"
Ananth‘ comes back to life with a deep, sudden breath. "W- well, that was certainly…"
Jack` flops forward, leaning his elbows on his knees.
AveryCoast: Stocke, you hear the sound of shattering glass from above as you stick your head out the window, and the purple light goes out.
Stocke chews at his lip before glancing at Bree. He smiles.
Bree: "Something amusing?"
Jack: "Alright."
Jack: "So who’s ready to go a-huntin' and mount a horned beasts' skull on the wall?"
Stocke: "It seems the problem outside has fixed itself, is all."
AveryCoast: The train continues slowing down. You're currently crossing a bridge to the island of Sid Minos.
Stocke: "A shame. I was wanting to look at it but it appears to be shattered now."
Bree: "Oh? Was that the sound I just heard?"
ChefBatali helps Doris to her feet and stands as well, brushing himself off. "Much too kind, ma'am."
Doris: "Well, alright. If I could just get a cup of something to sooth these old nerves of mine, please?"
Hilda stands up and peeks into Damata's room.
Stocke: "It would seem that way. From what I can tell whatever adjustments were made last night were not made in good judgment. I'll have to have a closer look when the train stops, of course."
AveryCoast: He's huddled with his wife and kids. Looks like they were worried about him suddenly falling asleep.
Steeg: "Sounds like a plan. I want to have a good look at this."
ChefBatali: "I have just the thing, of course." And he makes her a warm soothing cup of tea.
Ananth‘ still seems a little shaken now that the adrenaline’s worn off a bit.
Hilda knocks.
Stocke: "Pardon me for asking though. Were you not a bodyguard? Where is your protege?"
Bree: "Sadly, not on the train. Thought I'd take a trip to Vendricce and look for business there since it was already paid for."
Jeremy: "By the way Jack - carbines suck. Muskets all the way, eesh."
Jack: "I'll take it up with the cruise director."
AveryCoast: The train pulls into the enclave, right on time.
Jeremy: "Oh man though -"
Jeremy: "Wanna see something funny?"
Jack: "Sure." He's hoping for the facesmack.
Jeremy‘ gets up out of his seat and exit the cabine as the train rolls to a stop, making his way towards Luc’s.
Hilda shrugs and goes back to see to Ananth. "How're you holding up?"
Jack‘ also follows Jeremy.
Stocke gives a nod to Bree. He doesn’t seem to be doing much outside of his usual affairs though. Helping the engineers inspect the train as soon as it pulls in.
AveryCoast: You see Ottavia and Luc, carrying a bunch of their stuff, hop off the train and run towards the carriage station.
Ananth‘ stands, and smiles. "I’ll survive. Curious what 'something funny' is, though." He follows his charge, bemusedly.
Jeremy: "Holy shit they're leavin' in a hurry. Actually maybe you should duck out right now and follow them while I be a distraction."
Jack: "I'm on it." He makes for a crowd, to blend while keeping an eye on them.
Jeremy‘ then leans out the window and gives a super exaggurated wave in their direction. "Mister Luc! Just wanted to say thanks for the coin! It’s appreciated!" Big ass smile.
AveryCoast: They don't even stop.
Hilda: "Sounds good." She also follows! "I'm curious how our, um." She tries to find the right word. "Counter intelligence is taking it."
Hilda: Though Jeremy just seems to have answered that for her.
Jeremy` frowns. "No fun at all."
Stocke makes his way to the front of the train when able and recovers whatevers left of that lamp.
