Tatsuo & Rene's CellTatsuo Full-round: cast Charm Person on key guard (using Conceal Spell), Will DC15 but passedcontinues to concentrate, but his expression falls into another frown. He can't say that he often finds lust throwing off his ensorcelment. Anyway, the spy can work with what he has.

Tatsuo raises his scratchy voice with a wry almost sympathetic chuckle, "Impulsive brothers, so much trouble ... You know he is going to get you both killed or castrated." His smooth words flow into the charmed guard's ear. "Best to lock him up in the back cell, keep him safe until he cools off, don't you think?"

Taevar quickly tried to do his vanishing trick when he suddenly realizes his hands are bound and unable to make the gesture need. Secretly cursing himself he instead tries another plan as the pirate comes in he gives him a smile and a little whistle.

Well its not my fault the shackles just popped of come here and have a look. he said despite the shackles still being firmly on his wrists. In fact come here and take a look at me, you want to know if I am dangerous. There is something about me isn't there... it just draws you in.

Olesia Knox: Free at Last
left-aligned image

As though touched by a divine whim, the shackles securing Olesia’s hands and feet magically unlatch. Olesia immediately ripped off her gag and threw the nasty rag to the side. The time of reckoning had finally arrived.

Thank you, Eryka, for hearing my prayer.

The paladin stood up slowly, her hawkish gaze flaying the unsuspecting pirates. The door to each cell was open, slightly ajar. Olesia flew a cold little smile, methodically stretching the toned muscles of her back and the stiff ligaments of her arms and neck. A tough night lay ahead of them, but the blessing of their gods would undoubtedly see them rise above adversity. She had every confidence that it would take more than a handful of shabby currs to block their glorious escape. Regardless of the consequences, Olesia Knox was free as a bird, sooner to embrace Eryka’s Light than ever be thrown in chains again. Now, its do or die. Accepting this with firm resolve, Olesia flung Aria a sidelong glance, aglow with the fiery mirth of a Paladin’s zeal.

“Let’s begin, shall we?”

One by one shackles are undone and doors are unlocked through the small man's magic, a magic that at this point is all but impossible to not notice. At least for the prisoners, the guards seem to be rather preoccupied through diversions both natural and magical. Throughout the process the busy reptile scurries back and forth among the prisoners, apparently making sure all of them are alright. Xan'cha uses the time to Healing hex on herself
Dice Healing:
1d8+4 (1)+4 Total = 5
heal the lingering wounds on her back while the reptile makes its rounds, the jagged wound left by the whip melted away, almost as though it had never been. Truly these pirates know nothing of power if they think the power of life itself can be quelled so easily. The lizard returns to its master once more when she is free, the shaman chanting words of power and petting the creature on top of its head. Whispering something to it in her own language she points to Tatsuo, the creature dashing back over and conveying the shaman's Casting CLW on Tatsuo
Dice Healing:
1d8+4 (4)+4 Total = 8
healing magic to the still-wounded man while Xan'cha disentangles herself from the chains. Battle is certain to follow, it will not do to have anyone running into it half-dead.

With its rounds apparently completed the small reptile hustles back over to Xan'cha's cell, hops onto the tatters of the green skirt around her waist, onto her chest, and then onto her shoulder where it perches, eager to rest. A few more words in the priestess' native tongue that sound like praise follow, the reptile seemingly happy to be with its master again. As the others prepare themselves the priestess tears off what little remains of the dark green sash tied around her chest, modestry apparently little to no concert of hers. Reaching behind her back she wipes clean some of the lingering blood from the wound to her back and uses the blood to mark a tribal design on her face. A call to the spirits for strength in the coming battle, though the specific meaning is certainly lost to the others. Quietly she approaches Olesia and nods her head in agreement, tracing a pattern in the air, whispering a short prayer in her own tongue, and pressing her hand against the other woman's shoulder. A Placing her Hex of Warding on Olesia, granting +2 to AC and saves until she is hit or fails a savesoft, green glow that bears a passing resemblance to serpent scales forms around Olesia before contracting upon her and fading away. "Tey will die or we will. But I feel it will be tem," she answers sternly, nodding at Olesia to lead the way.

Taevar had wrapped the pirate in a story so thick and so silly that he could not help but be enamored with it. It was quite easy for the sea fearing man to weave a tale, but it was quite easier to keep the attention of a man who just wanted to hear how great and powerful he could be. The problem was that this particular pirate had no skill that was worth telling a story about, so that was exactly what Taevar had used. For the last minute he had been weaving words and tales putting the man in the light only he could shne in.

And when they asked them to do anything.... do you know what they said? he aske suspensefully. We are the pirates who don't do anything! Their captain could ask them anything but they insisted they were the pirates who... he lead letting the sitting man finish the sentence.

Sayyida looks out into the dimness. She sees her compatriots free and feels the 'click' as her own manacles suddenly open. Waiting, she smells the pirate who looms over her; a mixture of grime and rum, of sea-salt and leather. His hands are like fire as he runs them over her cold exposed skin. She widens the stance of her free feet a little, which moves her into the pirate. He makes some inarticulate sound; half pleasure anticipated, half feral incoherence. Looking down watching his hands move to grip her hips as his desire nearly crashes upon her, Sayyida has waited long enough. Leaning back, she turns her face to him as if she is going to kiss him as his head tips over her shoulder. Lips barely brushing his ear, she instead whispers to him as her free left hand slips past the pommel and turks head of his rapier to grasp the handle.

"Time to die," she whispers softly to him.

For a moment, the parts of his body are disconnected from each other. One hand still roams to the curve of her lower back and the other still grips the rim of her right hip as he leans slightly away bringing his eyes up. In those brief seconds as understanding dawns on his face while his hands still find pleasure in Sayyida's body, Sayyida says those words again. Although louder, they still roll from her lips softly with a silky roundness as Sayyida draws his sword and steps away from him, leaving his hands to search empty space for her.

"Time to die."

RanaFeeling as ill as her cousin, it took her moments to awaken to the shifting about in her cell. Of course her cousin wasn't in such a grave state to have died but that seemed to have fooled the men in this prison, But of course, they are pirates. She could only breathe out a sigh and a prayer to herself while Sayyida distracts them, sacrificing gentle amounts of her own chastity on the hopes of freedom on the kinds of people Rana wished to distance herself from in worth.

Commotion seemed to cascade, one prisoner freed himself, then a bard-like man began to fascinate the guard. Person by person, the shackles were undone. In little time, the acid-worn bindings upon Rana's wrists and ankles fell open, allowing her drop a foot upon the ground.

Despite the fever, she stood straight with her breathing ragged. She gives a loose glance toward her cousin. She swallows the immediate urge to offer advice or fling protective magics her way. With a calm breath, she concentrates on conjuring help from a Hellfiery pit. At the end of an incantation and rhythmic sways of the body like an unbidden dance, the smell of sulfur begins to fills the air as, from flame a hound with reddish-brown fur begins to appear.

So far the plan seems to be going well. The two guards at the far end of the prison block are completely unaware of what's happening behind them. The priestess already knew they were idiots, but it's a nice surprise to find out they're this stupid. The prisoners have freed themselves, silently made a plan for battle, and are waiting for the moment to charge at their tormentors. It seems, however, that the woman in the far cell that the pirates had their hands all over, though she contributed greatly to the plan, wasn't quite in on the details. Pulling the sword from the pirate is unexpected to be sure, and snaps the guards out of whatever, or whomever, had been entrancing them. Though Xan'cha had intended for Olesia to lead the way, it seems the other woman in the cell is caught off guard as well. No plan of battle, as they say, survives contact with the enemy.

Speed is of the essence, and Xan'cha's movements and reactions are swift to be sure. A lifetime of living in a dangerous jungle rather than stuffy courts and "civilized" lands has taught her that much. Always be aware, always be ready to act. Abandoning all sense of subtlety now that the ambush has been sprung, she quickly pushes open the door to the cell and moves into the hallway, grabbing the bars of the cell to help her turn quickly. Once in the hallway she sets her sight on the guard with the key, eyes narrowing and furious expression on her face. She may not be the trained warrior that some of the others are and may not have the size and mass that they do either, but sheer fury can count for a lot. As she rushes at the pirate a faint, spectral image of a man-sized, swift-moving reptile forms in her wake, overtaking her as she throws a punch at the pirate so it looks like the spectral reptile pounces on him. Though the force of the punch is minimal, the magic behind it hits the pirate with much more force, a snarling roar coming from the spectral form as it crashes into him and dissipates. Magic can count for a lot too.

Seizing the moment as chaos and pandemonium breaks out Taevar rushes out of his cell while the pirate he was distracting slowly breaks out of the effect of his alluring words. In a desperate attempt to arm himself he reaches for the pirate's cutlass after closing the distance, but the distance as too great and by the time he was there the pirate had caught on to his ploy.

Pulling away before Taevar could steal the sword the pirate had gained the advantage on the sailor. It was not enough to break Taevar's thirst for freedom however. Looking the pirate straight in the eye he offers him salvation. Alright.. I'll admit it, you've grown on me, I'd hate to see you go down for someone else's big plan. If you surrender now I'll let you live. he offers with his hands slightly on guard.

Sayyida moves gracefully. The tendrils of her ripped clothes float about her like smoke. She smoothly sidesteps the pirate's first attack and, as he looks up at her, blood and guts spilling from him, she leans in extending her arm and rapier. The movement is a blur, the point of the rapier entering the man's eye and piercing the back of his skull before she returns to stand over him. She tries to shake away the feeling of the pirate's warm hands on her skin. But they stubbornly stay with her, just like the smell of him.

He is barely alive. His breathing is harsh. His ruined eye seeing nothing.

Whoever Aria truly was, clearly she was a warrior that had seen her fair share of battle. The exotic woman tore her top off and decorated her face in blood; and, sensing there was no time to waste, charged out of the cell before the stunned paladin could even react. Olesia marveled ever-briefly, before her own gusto kicked in. Rushing from her cell right behind Aria, pleased to see that the woman’s attack connected, Olesia swooped in beside her to corner the guard.

“Surrender now, or you’ll end up like your friend.” Olesia warned, gesturing to the bloodied man in the adjoining cell. Her icy gaze failed to hide a glimmer of anticipation, angered by Rita’s pale, half-frozen corpse still splayed there as an open spectacle outside of Taevar’s cell. "A one-eyed pirate."

Pacho was content to let the mob have their vengeance, Rita was not worth getting stabbed for. Besides why risk injury when others are willing. With the pirate girl armed, sulfur glazing the air, and a foreign diplomatic beauty skilled as a bowling ball he was sure his captors’ time in this world was numbered. He was more concerned with their next move. Pacho casually shed himself on his shackles and exited his cell, giving Rita’s corpse a farewell nod as he made his way to the door and braced against it. He covered the window with his chest and put his ear against the wood, trying to 19 perception checklisten to what might lie on the other side. Copying the tongue of his captors heVoice Mimicry saysYa dumb Kluts” in darakyan hoping to hide his comrade’s slaughter.
