"So cold... so cold... help me, Headmaster, please..." moans Salazar.

OOC: Since we already are called Executioners, should we go and massacre some people at a podunk town for the 600 XP? ;)

Ravenblade crumples to the floor in exhaustion and from the lingering pain of the fire-acid toxins that ravaged his body a moment ago. "That was...unpleasant."

OOC: Tsk, tsk. Such evil thoughts you have, Josh. What would Mal say. ;)

Picking himself off the floor, Daggoth dusts himself off.
"Well that was... unpleasant"

OOC: I dont think experience grinding works to well in PBP anyway :mrgreen:

Hedoni stands up and looks around, glad to be back in the familiar space of the Headmaster's office. Seeing her ask for the token, Hedoni inquires, "Where exactly did that thing come from? Was it the result of his pact, or the cause of it? In all my years knowing Salazar, he's never let me see it."

Answering Hedoni, Aurythia explains "A warlock pact token can be anything, a ring, a book, a piece of string ... as long as it tempts the mortal. Once the token is accepted, it is a symbol of the pact and the bond between the devil and the warlock. I assume Zoldathra presented Miller with the token shortly before he destroyed our advanced practice laboratory. The new and untamed power the pact presented probably overwhelmed him, and unfortunately, our classroom as well."

Not too worry. All in good time. However, you all should start thinking about leveling up.

To both Hedoni's and his own amazement, Salazar draws forth the dark metal coin and offers it to the Headmaster.

The headmaster takes the coin and then gently, but forcibly, takes away his rod, wand, and imp book.

As she stows Salazar’s belongings in a chest, she explains further, “Very few warlocks survive a broken pact for very long. It is not uncommon to feel lethargic, wistful, guilty, depressed, and even suicidal. The loss of such a bond is not unlike the death of a loved one,” she pauses and thinks a moment “or perhaps more like breaking up with a lover. In any case, we will need to buoy his spirits and, to some extent, replace what has been lost.”

She reaches up and takes Salazar’s head gently in both hands, her fingers moving and probing his skull. Aurythia concentrates on her ministrations and the pained look on Salazar’s face fades. After a few moments, she looks him in the eyes and then kisses him. No one is more surprised than Salazar. Then suddenly, he feels a portion of Aurythia's draconic power coursing through his veins, the dark shadow that had been on his heart only a memory of a nightmare now.

Aurythia steps away and walks to a nearby glass cabinet. She takes a decanter and pours an amber liquid into two crystal glasses. She gives Salazar a glass, says “Drink this,” and downs her own glass.

      The liquid burns as is goes down. It looks, smells and tastes like whiskey.

"Thank you, Headmaster," Salazar says with a bit more strength. "I needed that. What exactly did you just do to me?"

Fascinated by Salazar's new powers and surprised by the question directed at him, Hedoni responds, "Thank you, Headmaster. But I feel I have much yet to learn, myself. In a few years, perhaps, I'd be happy to teach new students about the art of teleportation."

Salazar bows his head. "Thank you, Headmaster. I will do my best to live up to your expectations... finally."

Turning to Hedoni, Salazar kids his old friend. "How about it, Professor Mindartis?"

Hedoni looks around the office and grounds of the school with fond memories, then says to the group, "Let's rest here for a bit, then head on out. Our newly pact-less friend has orders to do away with evil, and I'm not one to disobey orders from the headmaster."

Having finally, wearily picked himself up off the floor Ravenblade says weakly. "Yes....let's rest. Salazar, I expect you will now be helping the elderly cross the streets of Overlook."

OOC: Extended rest or rather spend the day and night her, then off to Overlook. We can stop at the Iounian Temple, resupply, and then save the world in a few days. Speaking of which, weren't we going to all chip in for Hedoni to buy Comrade's Succor ritual?

"Ahhh! You coward!" shouts Ravenblade in pain at being stabbed by the invisible foe. "Shouldn't you be reading books in a library or something."

Still groggy, Hedoni shifts back a space and says "There's always something, or someone, keeping me from getting a good night's sleep." He then raises his arms and twists the space around Daggoth, transporting him to safety while hitting both warriors.

Move Action: Shift to E3
Free Action: Fey Step Daggoth to F4 using Twist the Arcane Fabric.
Standard Action: Cast Twist of Space on E6, hitting Pink Warrior and Orange Warrior (and Blue Blademaster if he's at F6).

Twist of Space attack: (1d20+11+1=20, 1d20+11+1=27, 1d20+11+1=32, 1d6+9=15)

Twist of Space hits Will 20 on Pink Warrior and Will 27 on Orange Warrior (and Will 32 CRIT on Blue Blademaster, if he's in the zone) for 15 damage. On a hit, Pink is transported three squares above B5 (so he'll fall 25 feet, into the trench) and Orange is transported three squares above F5 (so he'll fall 15 feet into the fire). If in the zone, Blue Blademaster is transported three squares above E6 (falling 15 feet). Daggoth is Fey Stepped to safety (F4) using Twist the Arcane Fabric.

Shield spell and Staff of Defense are readied if I'm hit. Wizard's Escape is readied in case I'm hit with a melee attack.

Thanks! Rolling fire damage for Orange as well. I'll let Emily roll falling damage, because I don't know what their Acrobatics modifiers are.

Crit Damage: (2d10=9)
Fire Damage: (1d12=6)

"You really could be a professor of teleportation one day, you know," Salazar comments to Hedoni.

OOC: Mike, could you change the code on Salazar's pre-formated speech to darkorange? Thanks! Any change of getting the other new games added, while you're in there?

The pink warrior is whisked away for 15 damage. She falls in to the bottom 2d10=16 of the trench, but she easily somersaults and lands lightly on her feet. "Ahh, what just happened?" She yells. Orange is deposited in the air above the camp fire and quickly tumbles to a safe landing. "1d10=5 Orange chokes and coughs on the smoke "It burns!" She takes 21 damage, including fire damage.

Pink easily climbs out of the trench and goes for Hedoni. Her blade flashes twice "Take that for tossing me into a trench." As soon as the katar is about to slice the wizard, in a flash he is gone. The warrior seems confused as her target disappears "Whaa...." (I put hHedoni on top of the tree at F2. I figured that is what he would do. Let me know if that is not okay).

Orange shifts out of the flames and swings at Ravenblade with her katar. The hot coals must still be clinging to her feet because her aim is horrible.

Initiative: Status
Blue Blademaster: no damage, invisible
Spectral Panther: no damage, insubstantial
Hedoni: 53/53
Pink Warrior: down 16
Orange Warrior: down 21
->Ravenblade: 60/68, blinded
Shadar-kai witch: no damage
Daggoth: 72/80
Salazar: 67/67
Mal: 60 (4 temp)/60
