Berry had to admit, it was awe-inspiring to see the ogre start bringing the house down. He hoped the others had time to get out...he could see three of the ladies by the window, but didn't see the mage or the druid.

I have to give them more time, he thought, hoping to at least get the ogre's attention and slow him down. "Hey! HEY! Over here!" he yelled, firing another arrow at the giant beast.

Creepy

 

 


Just barely making it out of the collapsing house, Lily scrambles back to her feet and turns back around towards what's left of the house. Seeing the ogre's head towering above the debris, Lily suddenly starts to giggle. In an exciting sounding voice she looks down at the skull hanging from her waist.


"Look Mother!" Look what I'm going to do!!!" She suddenly waves her hand in the ogres direction. The sounds of bells start to ring around it's head.

The Farmhouse Berry was finally able to draw the attention of the ogre to himself with a well placed arrow and some words and as the beast extricated itself out of the structure it plucked another of its allies off the ground and threw him at the halfling. The impact was enough to stagger the ranger who was appalled to see the formally sleeping man was now dead after the impact. Amy attempted to remove rubble and debris off of the mage Araceli but was unable to budge the stones and beams. Lily, with a view of the monster over the decimated building was able to cast her tolling bell spell to some effect. It was then that the Holy Mother Tahira showed the power of her deity and summoned forth a blaze of divine fire that tore into the ogre to great effect. The beast roared in agony as its thick hide was melted where the flame had scorched it.

oocWon't be able to update the map until tonight but the scene is pretty simple at this point. The ogre is just around the south corner of the house but most of you can see it over the rubble. Only one human left sleeping from Araceli's spell. One more round of attacks should down the ogre.

"Hold on, Araceli! I'll get you (*grunt*) out of there!"

Amy continued to pull at the heavy rubble. Her persistence paid off. With a final heave, her muscular limbs dislodged the obstacle. She tossed it aside; Reached into the newly revealed alcove; And scooped up Araceli in a bridal carry. She looked down at the smaller woman now cradled in her arms.

"It's all right. You're safe."

At this point, the ogre roared.

"...Well, safer."

Araceli Naeva Hazesun
The short woman crys out in horror, closing her eyes shut when the building collapses around her before she can make another attempt of getting out. When she dares to open them again she realizes that miraculously she's still alive but completly burried under rubble, making it almost impossible for her to move. At this point her whole body is shaking as she struggels against the pieces of wood and stone on top of her but to no avail.

The young mage does not dare to call out for help out of fear of the monster finding her. But what if her companions think she's dead? Will they leave without her? They can not leave her here, please don't let them leave her here to die. In a fit of painc she is about to scream out when suddenly some of the rubble gets pulled away, revealing Amy's face. Tears stream down the young girl's face as she reaches out for the paladin with both arms. She clings to the older woman's sleeve and just sobbes both in fear and in relief at the calming words of her companion.

The roar of the ogre makes Araceli jump. Still shaking she slowly lets go of Amy's armor and gets back on her feet. This nightmare has to end. Still holding on to the paladin's chain mail with one hand her other arm trembly stretches out to once again point at the monster on the other side of the house. As she closes her eyes to try to focus again white energy starts to crystalize around her hand. With a sharp exhale the young mage reopens her still teary eyes to
Dice Attack Ray of Frost:
1d20+5 (9)+5 Total = 14
Dice Damage:
1d8 5
release a bolt of ice-cold energy right at the source of her fear.

The ogre roar in pain as the frost hits it. Its scream of pain and rage makes Araceli shiver and she quickly hides behind the knight, still holding on to a part of her armor like to make sure the woman will not leave her alone.

Creepy

 

 



Still giggling, Creepy points a finger at the ogre.

"Look at what I'm going to do now! I'm going to burn it alive!!"

No sooner then she spoke the words, when a white, flame like fire covers the ogre, descending from above it.

Berry picked himself back up, extracting himself from the crumpled human. Glancing at the unfortunate missile, Berry looked back up to see the ogre get blasted with varying beams of hot and cold, increasing the creature's misery and anger. It was a good sign...it meant at least some of his companions had survived the house collapsing.

Best hit the beast from all angles, Berry decided, sending another shaft its way while it was distracted, sinking it into the creature's side.

Victory and a Prisoner
right-aligned image
As Berry, Lily and Araceli all assaulted the battered ogre, its chaotic rampage was finally put to an end. It collapsed in a heap, damaging what little was left of the foundations of the farmhouse. In its battle craze it had killed two of its allies. However, one of them, a man with long black hair and dressed in well made black robes with red gloves lay asleep, still caught in Araceli's spell. Of the druid, Huern, there was no sign. No cry for help for sound of movement from the rubble. The half-elf was most certainly dead.

With the ogre down and dead. Creepy now focus her attention on the sleeping human. As she approached him, an eyebrow goes up. Then a slightly puzzled look. Then she tilts her head to one side.

"Hummmm….."

Reaching the sleeping person Creepy removes any weapons that she can see on his body. She then squats down beside him and starts poking him with her quarter staff.

"Wake up! Wake up! Me and Mother have some questions for you! We want to know why you are here! Wake up! Wake up!" She keeps poking him until he starts to come too.

Berry frowned slightly as the crazy girl prodded the sleeping prisoner awake. He wasn't too keen on a possible spell caster being woken, but perhaps he would realize the futility of attacking at this point. And they did need answers...

Still, there was no harm in taking precautions. Slinging his bow, Berry drew both short swords, taking up position on the other side of the sole survivor of the group that had attacked them. He was feeling particularly vengeful, in fact, as this group had caused the death of the person he knew the longest out of all his companions. Granted, only by a day or two, but it was closer to being a friendship than Berry usually enjoyed.

Poised and ready to strike, Berry would waste no words on a warning. Any fool who couldn't take his position and demeanor as warning enough deserved to die.

The ogre and its allies fell at last. But Amy had trouble viewing this as a victory. So much damage had been done. The poor couple who owned this house were dead; As was one of Amy's own companions. Victims of an insane, vindictive cult, who pursued revenge beyond all rational sense. What was the point of all this? Even the criminals had gained nothing by sending this hit squad. Nobody had gained anything! Sheer madness.

Amy could do nothing to undo this harm. All she could do now was protect what still remained: Like the terrified Mage who clung to her. This poor girl needed more than just a halberd by her side. She needed compassion. Amy faced Araceli, and enveloped her in a warm, comforting hug.

"It's all right. It's all right. They're gone now. You're safe. I promise I won't leave you alone."

Lily was able to rouse the prone man from the slumber of Araceli's spell and his look of shock and surprise at finding himself on the ground quickly turned to joy as he saw the face of the black priestess.

"So nice to see you Lily. Its been far too long." He glanced around and saw the carnage and destruction including the slain ogre. "So uncontrollable, ogres. Better at bashing walls and smashing through a line than abduction. Speaking of which, if you were to come willingly, it wouldn't be abduction. I realize I'm probably in no position to demand but the least I can do is ask. Let me take you into the depths of Khul Boldohr to add you to our ranks. It is truly a wondrous existence. Service to something greater than yourself, something tangible and reliable. I'm sure your friends would be welcomed with open arms as well."

Araceli Naeva Hazesun
Araceli's hand falls limply back to her side as she watches the ogre finally falls. She can't help but stare at the giant corpse and her grip on Amy's armor tightens, still trembling, not daring to look back at the rubble that has once been a nice farm house. This is not what she had wanted. Of course she had read about situations like this she did not expect the feeling of emptiness and pain in her heart that follow this encounter. Do the heros in her favourite books feel like this after a battle won? Is this the life of an adventurer? For a moment she thinks of her newly attained half-elven friend before she quickly pushes the thought to the side and she doesn't dare to look back to the house out of fear of what she might see.

All of the sudden the young mage feels two arms wrap around her and pull her close. It takes her a second to realize that it's Amy who starts to comfort the terrified girl but once she does she just collapses into the paladin's arms, silently crying, mourning Huern and the nice couple who owned this place.

She barly takes notice of the words of the last surviving attacker. A part of her wants to hear what he has to say as it maybe, hopefully offer some kind of explanation for all the death and destruction since her mind can't comprehend it. But the other half of her just wants to hide in a corner or go back home and at like nothing ever happend.

Not knowing what to do she just keeps holding on the taller human who is the only beacon of light at the moment as she trys to calm herself down.

Creepy

 

 



Creepy's face breaks into a huge smile. She stands up and looks down at the now waken man. In an cheerful voice she answers him.

"Hi Nheisin! It has been a long time. You look well indeed! I heard that you where kidnapped by a group that is going around abducting members of the Couriers. It's good to see that you are doing just fine."

Still smiling, Lily tilts her head again to one side.

"So..... who do you work for now? And who ranks are you talking about? What greater service is there except for that of the Couriers and working for David? Your group can't be that great if you have to kidnap citizen in order to fill up your ranks."

Lily glances down at the skull and then looks back at Nheisin. She suddenly starts to giggle.

"Mother thinks you are crazy. But I think your are mysterious. I want to know about the mystery that's you!!"

She continues to look down at Nheisin, the smile still frozen in place.

Berry frowned grimly as the prisoner began chatting amicably with the crazy woman they'd recently picked up. "Why am I not surprised", he said with an almost-sigh, "that you two know each other?"

Laying his blade across the prisoner's throat, he drew just enough tension to coax a drop of blood from the brigand's neck, while keeping his steady gaze on the priestess. "Enough chat. Enough chatting with 'mother'. If we have questions, ask them directly. If not, you folks move on your way, and I shall deal with our prisoner."

Berry wondered what he would actually do if the group moved on. He could handle killing in defense of the realm...but to slay a defenseless man in cold blood? It also beggared the question as to how well these two knew each other.

Far better than the 'priestess' knew them, it would seem.

That was definitely a problem.
