Meanwhile... P4

The regulars gathered around, eagerly toasting Virtak, then Matches and finally Kintargo. Malone graciously accepted their thanks and filtered among the others casually asking them about Virtak and his new friend. By the time Matches took his leave, spirits in the tavern were so high that no one noticed he had hardly touched his ale.

Malone left the tavern, pulling his collar up against the unseasonably strong wind. He walked no more than two blocks down the street before stopping at a corner. He plucked the match from between his teeth and snapped his thumbnail against the head.

From a side alley, a tall, fully armored and armed blonde woman emerged from the shadows. The metal of her immaculate armor gleamed in the soft light of the street torches. She was the very picture of confidence and beauty.

"I finally hit pay dirt in that last dive."


"Splendid. Am I correct in assuming that the illusory image did the trick?"


"I'll say it did. They bought it completely. Even I was starting to believe I'd been in Varisia with Virtak. Let's get out of here."


As the pair rode out of Kintargo, Malone twisted his head sharply to one side. The bones cracked so loudly that it sounded as if he had broken his own neck. His head began to resize and reshape itself. The once wide nose, all but vanished. His skin took on a sickly grey hue and eyes became dark orbs. But it was not until the hair that had just moments before covered his face and head receded, leaving his skin free of any stubble, that he dropped the voice of "Matches" Malone.

As Blight curses the branch still separated under his foot things start to happen- fast. The sound swooshing flames, skin tingling screams, and the sound of trees falling apart. It's all happening around him but he can see nothing.

The thread gave way. Hissk tumbled from the tree tops thrashing through the branches it's black hairy legs scrabbling wildly in the darkness. With a crash he hit the ground.

"Flyeeeeeeeeeee!"

Blight takes his opportunity and closes his eyes since they are obviously useless. Using the speed of the spell he concentrates and tosses bombs at the location where the spider screamed. He then tries to figure out where the litgle-itsy-bitsy-spider might worm it's way into another hole for the necromancer and alchemist to pluck him out of.

"I smell a spider a' cinder, Virtak!" he roars, laughing.

Caught in a trap of his own making Hissk seethed, livid at his own blind incompetence. Not only was he stuck and unable to move but he'd dropped the deeper darkness pebble in the fall. The Necromancer must have seen him or been able to sense him. How? he was not sure but it did not bode well.

Hump! at least the other idiot is as blind and just as stuck as me.

*chik...skik...chik...crick........chik.chik..chik .*

some thing flew towards him through the thick vegetation.

What the..?...Oh NO!

*Whooooooooommpfh!*


A ball of searing heat erupted all about and as the livid flames grabbed him, their tongues licking across his blue black carapace, the drider screamed.

"AAArrrrrrrrghrrhhreeeeeeeeeeeEEEeEE!"


*chik...skik...chik...crick...chik...skik......chi k.chik..chik.*

a second missile arced in. This one fell short, burst with a dull pop and showered him with yet more burning material.

Frantically the Drider pulled against the strands of flaming web.

"it.....Burrrrrrrnnnssssss..ss......s.sssseeee.e.. .....!"


A muttered word was all it took to dismiss the web and suddenly the Drider was free. For a fleeting moment he considered a retaliatory strike but the assasin would now also be free.

He wasn't stupid...

There would be another time...

Another place...

There was more than one way to take revenge...

"Take it Flyeeeeeee.... If you can find it.......Enjoy it while you can....."


He yelled before stumbling away through the undergrowth...

and a few moments later from a distance called...

"Vinny.......come!"

The call wasn't answered by voice but by the crackling, cracking passage of the less than quiet bandit as he too tried to escape unseen. He headed North, away from the searing heat.

North and straight at the waiting assassin.

The drider was finally running. For a moment Virtak almost couldn't believe it. Most of this fight the odds had been at least somewhat in the arachnid's favor, with Virtak himself nearly dying on more than one occasion. Much of it, admittedly, was the result of his own carelessness as anything else. Any number of things he could have, should have, done differently. A lot of which to think on, including how to avoid the destruction of his father's, his family's, legacy. But that was for later once this was finished. The spider had to die, left to live he would no doubt come after Blight and himself once more in the name of vengeance. So the necromancer continued in pursuit of the duo's enemy even if it was at the half pace required as he felt around. So far, he had been quiet fortunate to pierce the naturally magical resistant aspect of the drider, whatever the thing's name was, but would it continue and prevail once more?.

Blight hears the spider crash through the forest in escape. He can't hear Virtak and has no idea where the young man can be, only hoping they can find each other in the middle of these dark woods. Driving forward blindly, he tries to stumble out of inky darkness until his darkvision takes over.
