Re: Chapter Six: Narrow is the Way

Post by Stephen »

A tall man with an athletic build suddenly shimmers into existence next to @steelbrok. He is wearing heavy furs and a matte gray mask with a design resembling that of a spider. (those familiar with the federation of magic would recognize it as a mask of a Lord Magus)

"I beg your pardon," he says cheerfully, "but did you say Tomorrow Legion?" he speaks in Russian with a slight American accent. "I've heard many good things about your organization, and if you are assembling to go off somewhere, I think I should come with! Stephen, by the way, A pleasure."

He holds a simple wooden staff in his hand, gripped in a way that tells you he knows how to use it. He simply folds himself into the unit as if he belongs.

Palach mutters out of the side of his mouth at @Par. "You were almost squid food. We saved you. You slept. Only some days. Not weeks."
He glances at @Stephen who blinks into existence near the cyborg. He barks out some questions in a less-than-friendly tone. "Otkuda ty? Ty s etoy devushkoy? Ty demon?"
"Where did you come from? Are you with that girl? Are you a demon?"
He shifts his stance slightly to accommodate a potential new threat.

Jose sees the walking Stick up and then the Mage pop in. What is this Grand Central Station, what ever that means? he doesn't say anything to Parr. He doesn't know him that well and it seems that Palach is talking more and bringing the Stick up to Par .
He turns his attention to the mage typ that just popped in! Oh, a mage type, No it's spiderman, someone just gave him a super wedgie. Dang it a lord magus, bet you he can do some cool card tricks. If it were Deadpool we would have a lot more fun. But some of those guys help escort the refugees out of Tolkeen with me.
"I beg your pardon," he says cheerfully, "but did you say Tomorrow Legion?" he speaks in Russian with a slight American accent. "I've heard many good things about your organization, and if you are assembling to go off somewhere, I think I should come with! Stephen, by the way, A pleasure."
Jose steps up to welcome the newcomer, "I don't think we mention the tomorrow Legion here? May be because I mention Tolkeen, Recently? do you Know the Birds the word?"

Jose is in Heavy Enchanted Armor, with Branaghan Special Armored Overcoat over it. he starts to head toward the new comer.

Jose scratches his head and speaks, "Well I guess he might of, and you knew the bird is the word, if your from the Old Empire. So welcome. Name is, Jose the Just, they seem to be big on titles here. So I was thinking just Jose, but it sound more important the other way." Jose smiles and offers his hand.

"I hope you are up on Demon fighting. Seems the ones we are going against are fearful of fire! so get ready yo light them up."

Steelbrok nearly jumps out of his metal skin when Stephen suddenly appears next to him.
Fortunately his EDAS shows no threat before Vlad decapitates the stranger.

(Internal grumbling: More new TL people arriving, is there a permanent Rift following this team? He'd better ask one of the arcane types about that. After dealing with the potential threat to the front. And still none of the magic brains have piped up to say whether this girl is real or not and a threat or not. Maybe I should just aske her directly?

It's a Party!
The bleak Russian wildness suddenly seems crowded as Tary and his crew arrive the same time as the stranger Stephen and the Russian girl emerges from the woods. It is a moment of sheer chaos as every tries to determine the true nature of everyone else. Radecliffe actives his psychic awareness and sees most people are who they claim. The girl appears human to his third eye, however, she is very frightened.

"They took my family you must help. They said they would kill them all. Help please!" She screams in Russian and pointing at the forest. It's obviously a trap, but the girl is certainly not lying.

Palach relaxes somewhat, although he didn't look tense to begin with. He translates the girl's cries for help to the American-speakers. He nods at the Russian girl. "My pomozhem tebe."
We will help you.
Gesturing to his comrades to follow, he begins moving quickly towards the forest. As he moves, an armored shell begins to encompass his form. Within a few moments, he is

Realizing things may become dangerous Par reaches out with his soul, asking the spirits of light to protect his allies from any dangers that may lurk.

Protective Spirits - Deflection (adept)
Exalted Deflection with Hurry on everyone including the girl 1d10!! or Wild 1d6!! +1 to highest roll: [5]+[10!!] = 15
Then Once he has seen to it the others are safe he reaches into the cloak on his back infusing it with enough of his soul to turn himself invisible as he moves forward.
I am assuming the holy staff does not help activate the cloak. As a GM I would not allow it.
Activate Shadow Cloak Faith 1d10!! or Wild 1d6!!: [19!!]+[3] = 22


Then moving forward he says to the others. "Lets see what this danger is."

"She said, 'They took my family, you must help...'" DB-B1 started to translate but as soon as it got to "help", Tary interjected, "We'll most certainly help!"

Tary quickly talks to his people, instructing them to assist, but primarily their main role will be to extract the family and any other "civilians" from the target area. Tary himself will charge in with the front line, maybe at the back of the front line, but he won't shy away from the action.

DB-B1 sticks with the Mountaineer, taking the wheel while the militiaman takes his place in the turret. The others follow behind, leaving room in the truck for the rescuees. The soldier stays on point making sure nothing sneaks up on the truck.

With the main group, Tary introduces himself again, "I'm Tary, these people travel with me, so they will help out, but stay back if there's a big fight. After we rescue everyone, beat the monsters and all that, we can help fix anything that's broken. We're real good at that, but mostly me and DB."

"So, where do we start?" Tary says snapping his helmet in place and looking tough loading an e-clip into his Wilk's 320 rifle with a slap.

"Where to start is an excellent question, stranger," Radecliffe grates, pitching his voice above the rising wind.

Glancing at the girl he grimaces and continues, "rather wait for this storm to pass but maybe no time. Go now, might be worse. We might die. Go later, other people might die."

Turning to the cyborg. "What say you metal man? Do we go now? If we go let's go. Storm getting worse."

A Dark and Stormy Night
  • Outskirts of St. Barlaam
  • Horror Factor: 3
  • Conditions: Heavy rain, lightning.
When the small girl emerges from the woods claiming her family is being held by demons the group immediately agrees to help. They are quickly joined by reinforcements as Tary and his team of adventurers arrive on the outskirts as well.

Before anyone moves too far, Steelbrok sends a hail of suppressive fire into the trees. The shrieks of the girl can be heard over the shooting, the rain, and the thunder overhead. She leaps and grabs Steelbrok’s arm screaming, begging for him to stop. Those who speak Russian can make out her words amid the screams.

”Stop. My Family!”

Silence falls on the group, the echoes of rail gun fire ringing in their ears, the girl sobs on the ground, soaking in the rain. Par prepares to descend into the shadows to see what remains while, Jose links everyone's minds so they can communicate wordlessly, and Stephen reaches out with his senses — the woods crawl with dark (ooc: demonic) presences and he can sense some humans among them as well. They all seem to be moving away, deeper into the forests.

OOC: The forests are too thick for vehicles.

Before anyone moves too far, Steelbrok sends a hail of suppressive fire into the trees. The shrieks of the girl can be heard over the shooting, the rain, and the thunder overhead. She leaps and grabs Steelbrok’s arm screaming, begging for him to stop. Those who speak Russian can make out her words amid the screams.

”Stop. My Family!”

Silence falls on the group, the echoes of rail gun fire ringing in their ears, the girl sobs on the ground, soaking in the rain. Par prepares to descend into the shadows to see what remains while, Jose links everyone's minds so they can communicate wordlessly, and Stephen reaches out with his senses — the woods crawl with dark (ooc: demonic) presences and he can sense some humans among them as well. They all seem to be moving away, deeper into the forests.

OOC: The forests are too thick for vehicles.
DB-B1 quails at the machine gun (or whatever, he doesn't care) fire wantonly into the woods. It looks around wary and scared for the source of the noise. It wants to stay out of the way. Fighting is not for it. It is worried about Tary though, the reckless humanoid rushes in to things with nary a second thought.

Doggo and Captain Dog circle around the cowering droid, who somehow gives off pheromones the snarling wolves pick up on.

Tary gets on the radio. He recognizes the situation...sort of. He quickly organized his team, maximizing the heroic with safety. For the most part that meant he sent everyone but his legit soldier friend to hang back and make a triage station at the Mountaineer.

Forgetting for a moment that he'd already dramatically reloaded his rifle, he does so again. He slings the rifle across his chest and much more expertly checks his med kits as he runs forward. The soldier covers him as they move with the larger group.

Tary staggers and falls holding his head as the psychic contact is established. He shouts, "Get out of my head, please, thank you!!!"

Thursday (Back again!) sees the young girl upset as she latches onto the cold man of metal to get him to stop. Another encounter with demons, much like when they first gathered together. I wonder if these demons have a treasure trove they're hiding. Or perhaps to turn into my minions. They will all praise me as their overlord and bring me shinies. But first, we should probably follow them if I want a chance to find out if either of these will come true. Thursday flies in the air and tries to look for any movement, ignoring the cat-man that slammed face-first into a tree.

A Dark and Stormy Night
Charging into the woods, rain drumming down heavily, the team finds themselves in a dangerous position. Villagers are staked to trees, pleas and cries emerge from the shadows. Some are real victims, some are demons in disguise. In the dark and rain it is hard to tell for sure. Rescuing the villages of St. Balam is no easy task. In fact, everyone might die trying!

Dramatic Task
This is a multi-person dramatic task to find and free villagers while avoiding demons. It is dark, raining, and confusing. Creatures move and lurk through the shadows while others pretend to be villagers and attack as your approach. We need one success per player (7) per round (3). You can choose any skill to roll as long as it makes narrative sense.

We are going to do three rounds in one week! This gives you a chance to up your post rate! Include your actions and rolls for all three rounds in your reply to this post. I will post new rounds on Friday and Sunday - you can let your rolls stand and narrate them or (as circumstances change) make new post with new rolls - it's like a free benny for posting more! You don't have to post three times, I will just use your original rolls to keep things moving.

1) Each Token represents a saved villager. Each missed Token is a dead villager.
2) Treat each round as a Dangerous Encounter (meaning success grants a level of Fatigue, Failure a Wound, and Critical Failure 1d4 Wounds).
3) If you save everyone I will throw some loot your and a Conviction Token your way. If everyone posts all three times I will up the quality of this loot.
4) Include a 1d4 roll. A 4 is a Club (ie complication). If you get a 1 roll again. If you get a second 1 it's a Joker (with a +2 bonus and a benny for all). If you have quick or level headed you can re-roll a Club.

Stephen grimaces, but quickly grits his teeth in defiance of the challenge at hand. He makes a gesture and speaks a few words and suddenly everyone in the party can detect the arcana! He speaks a few words in Russian, a slight yet charming American accent

Jose knows that there might be traps out there, he brings up his arcane defenses. He glows so now he becomes a beacon in these misty woods of fear and death. He can hear people crying out and he knows that the devils can shape change. So his vision is might lead him into making a wrong choice, so he uses something they might have forgotten. He uses his sense of smell to help direct him to tell weather it might be a demon or human. His first target he sees a demon near a tree but there is no smell of demon.
Complication, the glow from arcane resistance, the flaming Sword, and the Sun Sword is giving his position away in this misty forest

Hearing people are in danger Par does not hesitate to head into the battle. His mind already opened he reaches out looking for the demonic hostiles to avoid. Then as he closes in on the hostages he begins healing them, skimming their minds for other types of trauma. His broken Russian is not very strong as he tells them, "Come with us, we will get you out of here." letting the others more designed for war handle the hard bits of battle.

Palach strides boldly into the forest, looking for demons. Unfortunately, what he knows of demonic behavior doesn't grant him much benefit, as he fails to discern human from hell-spawn. One of the demons manages to strike him in the back. The blow doesn't hurt much, but it does put a dent in his armor.

Re: Chapter Six: Narrow is the Way

Tary does enjoy being in the thick of things, in the action. But sometimes he does stop to ponder the difference between heroic and stupid. Running into a crowded melee, in the dark, with unknown enemies might be on the stupid side, since he wasn't a front line warrior. But heroism, by his definition, meant putting your own wellbeing aside to help others, especially those in dire and desperate need. That certainly described the situation at hand. He brandishes his weapon only long enough to do something smarter.

He takes a moment to fuss with his radio and reaches out to everyone else getting comms aligned for coordinated communication. He works quickly flitting from warrior to warrior, radiating charisma the entire time. He is cool even in the tumult.
Electronics 1d10 1d6: [4]+[4] = 8

Everyone on the same page, Tary turns his keen powers of observation on the scene, calling out bandits when he spots one, or noting a civilian in need of assistance, and otherwise trying to bring clarity to the situation.
Notice 1d8 1d6: [1]+[5] = 6

At every opportunity, he quickly dismantles any of the demon's stuff, re-purposing it for all manner of defensive or deceptive devices, He does wish he had the laser torch though...
Repair 1d10 1d6: [3]+[5] = 8 (MacGuyver Edge in play!)

Safety in the woods is far more than just not being murdered by demons. As an extremely accomplished woodsman, Tary uses knowledge to find the right kind of tree for a splint, or tracking down runaways (bad guys or victims).
Survival 1d8+4 1d6: [1]+4+[2] = 7

Tary also calls upon the soldier with him to keep the demons off his back while he does his various creative tasks.

"DB!! We will need the trauma kit up here soon! Get prepped, and send (Vagabond person) to the front to help with the wounded. Bring the Mountaineer in as close as possible let the (Civilians) man the wheel, with the (Militia person) on the turret keeping it safe!! Come on DB! Let's go!"

Tary Card 1d4: [1] = 1
Second Card 1d4: [2] = 2

Oh my, this is bad... DB-B1 frets. It hands over control of the Mountaineer to one of the civilians (when it's parked, of course) and zips up through the hatch and out over the fight. Unlike Tary, it remembers to grab the laser torch.

Its wolves jump out the hatch after him and keep on DB-B1's trail as the droid goes about its business. They bark, intimidate and attack anything that gets aggressive towards their droid "poppa".

From overhead he studies the situation, using his vast store of knowledge to look for discrepancies that would tell a demon from a villager (you know like, a Russian peasant always uses their thumb to pick their nose, but that guy over there is using his pinky! Demon alert!).
Academics 1d12+2 1d6: [6]+2+[2] = 10

Similarly, the droid is also versed in the more prosaic aspects of life, etiquette and protocol and the like. Now currently there is no need to talk to vaperators or binary load lifters, but it still knows how to spot incongruity with a situation.
Common Knowledge 1d10+2 1d6: [4]+2+[6] = 12

Zipping (well, not zipping, more like carefully maneuvering) through the forest well above the forest floor, DB-B1 uses the scope built into its stun gun to survey the situation. The multi-optical enhancements are perfect to detect the demonic presence and separate them from the villagers!
Notice 1d8+2 1d6+2: [2]+2+[2]+2 = 8 (Multi-optics scope)

While not possessing the repair genius Tary possesses, DB-B1 is a very good hand with a wrench. It zips down from on high to burn through shackles or tear apart cages with the venerable Wilk's Laser Torch.

As the villagers come into view Radcliffe calls on Gaia's Sight to help him tell friend from foe. As his second sight comes into focus the nature of the scene before him becomes clear. Several of the so called hostages are in fact demons in disguise.

Concentrating once more Radcliffe's mind reaches out into the air summoning a minor air elemental to him. Pitching his voice so only the creature can hear. "Free the mortals as best you can. Do not draw attention to yourself. We will deal with the demons."

Whack a Demon

The storm, darkness, and confusion take their toll on the rag-tag band of heroes but their combination of technology, magic, and skill help them to avoid the most perilous of consequences. In fact, they manage to quickly nab a huddled group of villagers and return them to safety before plunging back into the trees to rescue more victims.

Round 1

Palach spins to locate the demon that had struck him. Despite the advanced technology in his armor, he simply cannot discern human from demon. His failure nearly costs him. Another demon takes a vicious swipe at him. The demon's strike lands, and lands hard, but Palach reacts quickly enough to twist away from the worst of the blow.

Card 1d4: [3] = 3


Par looks as the demons continue coming from everywhere and even villagers are turning into demons. "This is not good, this in not good." he starts saying to himself as he works as hard as he can to help those around him. The sky darkening around him makes him think perhaps they have some attention they do not really want. "Guys, I think something is behind this? Don't waste all your energy before it comes." He says as his senses flush around him with the malevolent energy. "Lets go people, I will see what I can do to help." He says still keeping his senses out feeling for signs of the supernatural monstrosities toying with them.

Notice 5, takes 1 fatigue
Notice 1d10!! or 1d6!! +2 to highest: [3]+[3] = 6
Moving through them he shouts warning to the villagers they come across, each time looking for risks and signs of danger to the villagers more than to himself. The consequence being that twice demons where able to get in on Par and strike at him before one of the others come in and helped him.

Repost from above, details added:

Everyone on the same page, Tary turns his keen powers of observation on the scene, calling out bandits when he spots one, or noting a civilian in need of assistance, and otherwise trying to bring clarity to the situation.

It's easier now with the civilians more or less collected. Tary keeps moving, staying close to the civilians, making sure no demons come near unannounced. He's hoping the soldier on his team can help with keeping the demons at bay once identified. "Hey folks," Tary says, pretty sure no one understands him, but hoping his chipper tone and body language will communicate, "we're here to help, this is what we do! We've got you covered!" he finishes with a

Similarly, the droid is also versed in the more prosaic aspects of life, etiquette and protocol and the like. Now currently there is no need to talk to vaperators or binary load lifters, but it still knows how to spot incongruity with a situation.

With more order now, DB-B1 can utilize its core programming more effectively. Noticing the social hierarchy within the rescuees, it works to ensure harmony among them with its superb grasp of human behavior.

Conditions: Dark -4, Difficult Ground (Deep Snow and Forests)

Villagers flee from the woods as the group finds demons in the trees and drives them deeper into the dark forest. The running battle takes a turn as the forest opens up into a snowy clearing, driving snow and sleet block their vision but a group of villagers is tied to a tree on a large rocky outcropping as demons move through the treetops on either side of the heroes.

Par looks around setting the group surrounded by demons and most the villagers safely away. Time to help his friends he decides as he reaches within his connection to the universe and draws on the power. "You cannot harm us, you wish avoid us." He says in words that ring true to the feelings as his power flows out shifting the cosmic pattern.

the situation his potential to contribute,
Pace 1d6: [3] = 3
. Or in his mind it's sprinting. In reality he starts slogging through the snow with all his strength. Snow is snow. But he hates the supernatural nature of the demons: it doesn't scare him, more it's revulsion over the very concept of magically infused beings. Oh well. He can't very well escape that sort of thing in the modern world. Still, he doesn't have to like it.

Anyway, he slogs through the snow trying to make his way to the prisoners. The warriors around him can do the shooting, he'll do the rescuing.

He doesn't shout, he uses the comm this time. "DB, we need to release those prisoners. You can fly, I can't. Check it out. I'll get there as soon as possible.

He nods to the soldier at his side. Understanding, the armored man does his best to keep up with Tary and provide cover fire.

"Everyone fall back to the Mountaineer and get it ready to roll in here and receive the prisoners. And shoot demons, if you can."

through the multi-optics scope towards the prisoners to try and discern any details that might be important -- and dangerous if missed.

The two wolves bound through the snow to keep pace, but they have no qualms about an attack of opportunity if something harmful to DB-B1 gets in their way. Grrr.

The rest of Team Tary mounts up into the Mountaineer and spends a few precious seconds arguing over who will drive (snugged safe and sound in the cabin) and who will man the pintle mounted laser rifle. The vagabond wins the argument through sheer charsima and the militia warrior mans the gun.

  • Conditions: Heavy rain, lightning.
Reacting quickly Palach is able to cut through the chaos, and cut through two demons at the same time! His vicious strikes hit hard disemboweling two of the creatures as they approach.

Meanwhile, Alexander and Thursday the dragon stand their ground watching and waiting to see what the foul beings are up to (Hold).

Using his connection to nature, Radecliffe summons forth fire beings made of pure fire.The elementals strike hard with fire damage but the hellspawn laugh and cackle with glee as the flames tickle them like a warm wind. However, the dry winter forest begins to erupt into flames,despite the recent rainfall. The blaze is spreading as the elementals thrash around the battlefield with no sense of their destructive power.

Helping his allies to get a grasp on the situation, Stephen boosts their arcane sight. As he becomes more aware of the demons Radecliffe groans, they are immune to fire! Tary can also see the demons for what they are, and their weak points.

Such attacks inflict +4 Mega Damage to Lesser Demons and Wounds caused by such attacks cannot be regenerated.
    Weakness (Silver): Silver weapons and attacks have the same effect as holy weapons, inflicting +4 Mega Damage and negating demonic regeneration.
Steelbrok bursts through the trees and uses Vlad to cut down one of the demons. Basil’s Blessing gives the weapon righteous fury burning the demon into non-existence. Forever banished from this realm. Cooly, the cyborg looks around for additional targets.

After giving some orders Tary starts sprinting toward the prisoners, sending DB-B1 out in front of him to try and help. As the two clear the treeline and enter the rocky foot of a mountain they can see the prisoners tied to a large evergreen tree. Suddenly the ground shakes and booms as the two heroes, caught in the open, spot the mighty Morozko Frost Demon, a tall, thin, and menacing looking humanoid beings with pale skin and piercing, ice blue eyes, stepping down from the mountainside toward the prisoners left there for his mollification. It slowly ascends the stone steps toward the villagers, a smile spread across its monstrous lips.

Calling forth his power Par radiates holiness giving the demons pause. They begin to glow with bright light, and their skin boils and smokes, making them obvious targets. Their spirits flag but they manage to stay in the fight.
Lower Trait
Fighting reduced two die types. Parry reduced to 4
Running through the trees Jose draws power from his sun sword and slices through a demon while it dances with a fire elemental.

What remains of the demons struggle to move past the fire elementals while those still deep in the woods flap their wings to stop Tary and DB-1 from reaching the villagers. They let forth a blast of eldritch energy that floods Tary’s mind with illusions, although DB-1 seems non pulsed.
Opposed Roll
Tary must make a Spirit roll vs. 9 or be Stunned.
Everyone: Fear check at -2 vs. Frost Demon.

Jose surrounded by the forest doesn't see much , but he goes on his hearing and his ears focus on the closes battle sound he goes to attack the closest devil. He arrives and sees the fire elemental going after a demon and he attacks it, once finished he mooves toward the south and sounds of a battle.

All the fire elementals are on hold. All the earth elementals moved so they are done for this round. The demons to the left of Radecliffe as he faces the hill are entangled as are the ones near the hostages. The ones to the right are still loose as that Elemental failed his roll.

He doesn't like leaving an enemy in his rear but has to trust his tem0mates to handle them (besides with 360 vision he can see if they mess things up and let the remaining pit-spawn come after him).

TARY
Tary groans seeing the demons for what they are, "Demons, I hate demons, why does it always have to be demons?"

He is scared out of his wits of course. Shooting his way out seems like a good idea, but he is well aware now how pointless that would be. Not for the last time he wishes for a jet pack.

Seeing the futility, but not succumbing to it, for the moment at least, Tary tries to draw the demons' attention to him. By shooting at them anyway. He hopes that DB-B1 can get to the prisoners in time!

DB-B1
The droid is worried about its companions, but it is no fighter. Its best contribution is getting the prisoners free. Of course, that big ice demon could be a problem. Still, DB-B1 zips through the forest, focused on the prisoners.

The friendly neighborhood wolves are indeed fighters, and not being dumb animals, know that big demon scary thing is out to hurt their pet droid. Not cool bro, not cool. The dogs charge, snarling and slavering in full attack mode.

Snapping out of his adrenaline induced delay Par concentrates for a moment, then meditating as best he can he calls on the powers of the cosmos to help him weaken the demon. Reaching out he shifts reality around the demon, twisting the probabilities and nature of the world to reject the demon, destabilize it and force it away.

Hold
Alexander and Thursday
Par bends the cosmos to his will, swirling time and space around the frost demon as he ascends the stairs toward his dinner. The creature feels the uneasy sway of chaos around him and seems to slow and stagger for a moment before continuing his ascent.

Dashing through the trees and snow Palach tries to close the gap but the terrain works and he rages against the storm and calls out loudly to the demon. It casts one of its many eyes toward the trees and chuckles, ”I hear desert in the forests!”

The earth and trees come to life as Radecliffe summons the spirits of the earth to aid in the battle. Rocks burst forth from the ground encasing the demons in stone, forcing them to struggle to break free of their bonds.

Steelbrok bursts from the treeline and leaps up onto the rocks, landing hard next to the tree where the villagers are tied. He levels Vera just as the giant steps up the last stair.

Tary and his more aware comrades, a few are panicked by the ice demon and retreat to the trees, open fire on the demons allowing DB-B1 a straight shot toward the tree. The little droid looks comical next to Steelbrok’s hulking cyborg frame but the villagers of Saint Balam will take any help they can get.

Moving through the trees like a jungle animal, Jose circles around a demon engaged with a fire elemental and cuts it to pieces with his blessed sword.

Stephen holds steady waiting to see what happens next.

The Morozko smiles at the two robotic beings in front of him as a long blade of pure ice extends magically from his hands. Up close the hulking 18 foot tall giant is a gruesome sight. Long spindly limbs and a large head with multiple rows of eyes and a mouth with many rows of razor sharp teeth. It appears to be smiling, but it is not a happy look, as it tries to cut a swath through Steelbrok.

Morozko Frost Demons
Use Greater Demon stats
Old Man Morozko is a demon lord and King o f the Frost Demons. He rarely interferes in the affairs of mortals, but there are legions of comparatively less powerful Frost Demons that do. These are greater demons often confused with the demon lord himself, or sometimes said to be his multitude of children. Whether they are actually Old Man Morozko' s offspring is unlikely, but they consider him their ultimate master, share many similar powers and are elemental in nature. Consequently, they are generally referred to as ''The Morozko," or "Frost Demons." They never gather in large numbers unless summoned by Lord Morozko and are typically encountered as lone, solitary figures or commanding a group of lesser demons or evil woodland spirits.
The Frost Demons may also associate with evil humans, particularly black-hearted men of magic.

Frost Demons are cruel and cold-hearted. They enj oy causing hardship and suffering for lesser creatures and frequently battle the human War Camps. This includes stirring up other demons and instigating trouble. They prefer to use their own natural abilities and innate magical powers, but are willing to use man-made weapons. Furthermore, they recognize the power of human science and high-technology, and rarely underestimate the power of high-tech weaponry, machines, science or magic.

All Frost Demons are tall, thin, and menacing looking humanoid beings with pale (whitish) or light blue colored skin and piercing, ice blue eyes. Their bodies feel firm and their skin cold to the touch. Most are ill-tempered, mean-spirited, spiteful and vindictive. Many wear fur trimmed boots, a tall, fur trimmed hat, and pants for show, and light armor that seems to be made of crystallized ice. Others wear little more than a loin cloth and a few bits of crystal armor. All can magically create a Frostblade an extra Damage Die to creatures of fire/fire elementals).

Sword is glowing due to the Fire that Basil put on it and Arcane protection glow. his armor also has farsight and darksight. He is still using his senses to try to locate the devils.

Once finished he speaks to the elementals, "I hear the sounds of battle toward the Southeast and to the East, I shall head East."
Jose heads south using the trees as a highway and following the sound of battle, ( new edge Free Runner and speed 12) He eventually gets to the edge of the woods and sees one of the new guys battling.

He sees Tary in a battle he gets to the devil and slashes at the Demon.

William thinks that Tarry is in need of help so he strikes the ones close to his new friend and hits with the Right Sun Sword as the devil tries to block. But it is the left hand that seems to slice the devil in twain. He speaks to Tary and those near him, "Tary, I hope you do not mind me bugging in on your fun.?"

The little droid is next to him, gamely trying to free the villagers. It needs time. The rest of his comrades are still either fighting the minor demons or too far away hold up the boss monster. And this monster is fast.
"So, looks like this is it," he says, resignedly, "Serves me right for not keeping my distance and sniping. Little dorid!" He addresses DB-B1, "Get these people out of here. I'll keep this thing at bay as long as I can"

WIP (rolling some dice)
TARY
Condition: Stunned + Fear: Fear 1d20+4: [18]+4 = 22 Heart Attack! Vigor-2: Vigor Roll: 1d8!-2: [8!, 2]-2 = 8 Vigor Wild Roll: 1d6!-2: [5]-2 = 3 Success w/ Raise
Fear. Magic. Demons. This is not Tary's best moment. He gibbers and mutters, not sure what to do next and his brain in a fog. Falling to the ground, he struggles to regain his composure, failing. His heart beats like it's about to explode. Red creeps in from the edge of his vision, and he loses consciousness, and for a moment Tary is sure he's dead. His eyes open, much to his surprise. He looks towards the Soldier, hoping the more aggressive fellow would be in better shape. As that is not true, Tary is even more wracked with fear and his aversion to the supernatural just compounds the condition. Tary remains paralyzed by fear, his mind included, he is senseless to everything going on around him.

BD-B1
It knows Tary and the others are in big trouble, but the small droid also knows where it can best contribute. Fighting toe to toe with demons (fighting in general, actually) is not where it has any utility. So brandishing the small laser torch, it gets
DB-B1 Repair Roll 1d8!+4: [3]+4 = 7 DB-B1 Repaire Wild Roll 1d6!+4: [2]+4 = 6
freeing the prisoners. It also radios the Mountaineer to see if they can move into a position closer to the prisoners. It instructs each prisoner as they are freed to make haste towards the vehicle. It's not like the multi-ton ATV is easy to miss.

Seeing its wolves quaking in fear is a new experience, and DB-B1 does not like it at all, it whistles to them while it's working, maybe they will focus in on him instead of the monsters surrounding the group. But that's all it can do, its primary focus is freeing the prisoners.

Stephen notes the...man? No, his magical senses say that isn't fully correct... regardless, he notes he would be more useful were he closer to the target. He makes a few arcane gestures and speaks the words of power. Suddenly @Palach finds itself right behind the giant frost demon.

As things pick up and the battle is soon engaged full on, he looks for the injured and wounded that may need his help.

Since I go last, I would like to wait and see if I can heal someone after the demons act.

Seeing the captives escaping the demon howls in rage and send a a wave of frost at them, hindering their progress (sloth), before turning his attention back to Steelbrok (23 AP 12). The bitter cold slows the prisoners down considerably making their retreat nearly impossible.

The danger represented by the demon is a serious one and Par advances moving even closer, while trying to stay under cover. Then as he closes he reaches deep within drawing on more power crushing the demon's ability to tap its magic and its ability to fight. The prayers sink into the demon as its ability to concentrates drops even further. The creatures mind growing hazy as it finds its will, its powers and its natural combat ability breaking down.

Par then focuses on himself, calling on nature to send spirits to protect him from harm.

A bunch of effects here
Demon should be;
additional -2 to break out rolls for all three these effects,
-2 die types Spirit and -2 to spirit rolls,

Frozen Hell
  • Outskirts of St. Barlaam
  • Horror Factor: 3
  • Conditions: Heavy rain, lightning.
Villagers in hand the group stares down an ancient Morozko Frost Demon — something that haunted the forests and steppes of Russia long before the cataclysm. An ancient, primordial foe, embolden by the rejuvenated ley lines criss crossing the planet. Worse still it commands legions of demons!

As lightning flashes dark shadows can be seen in the sky as more Storm Riders descend toward the fray. They move with dizzying speed, buoyed by the power of the storm. Surely the group will be consumed. Fortunately Thursday the Dragon comes bounding through the trees, with the priest, Basil the Blessed, on his back!

Like a Bogatyr of old Basil, riding a dragon no less, cuts through demons with bolts of holy power screaming prayers at the tops of his lungs before shouting directions to the group.

”The church, they cannot enter the church! Get the people to safety!”
Dramatic Task
A horde of flying storm demons is coming toward you, ruled by the giant frost demon.

3 Rounds, 20 Successes needed. Each person picks a skill and narrates how they are herding villagers toward the church, holding off demons, or otherwise assisting the cause. Each missed token is a lost villager. Fail the task completely and everyone is wiped out and Basil sacrifices himself to stop the hoard, but gain a Conviction.

Bonus, earn 24 successes and you slay the Morozko Frost Demon and earn a Conviction token!

Clubs impose a -2 penalty. Failure on a Club means the entire task fails.

Bennies reset!

Palach realizes he is outmatched. Still, this demon must be wary of flashing blessed and silver blades. He ensures, then, that the frost demon has a good look at those blades to bar the creature's reach towards the herded victims. Where they approach, some of the other demons who get too close get

from those blades. He urges the captives forward. "Davay, druz'ya. My dolzhny idti. Toropit'sya!"

Wounded, his powers for the moment exhausted Radecliffe pushes himself into motion by strength of will alone. Gritting his teeth he gives his final command to his surviving elementals "

Psionics 1d10!!-2: [4]-2 = 2

Spending a bennie which adds in Elan

Psionics 1d10!!: [9] = 9

!"

The fire and earth elementals turn as one to face the pursuing demons providing crucial seconds for the villagers to make their getaway. Radecliffe feels a pang of guilt as the demons tear into the outnumbered elementals but he knows they are buying the time they all needed to get to the safety of the priest's church. Turning he grips his spear as follows the others knowing it will most likely come to hand to hand before this ordeal is done.

Par tries his best to encourage the villagers to move in the right direction. Not wanting them to panic or move into location of greater danger. "Come on guys, we will protect you, head for the church."

Seeing some of the panicked people heading away, Par rushes in front of them, unable to stop them with brute strength or force alone, he uses his words. The Russian broken and not perfect he is still able to get his purpose across. "Please, you must trust us, we saved you from those other demons, but if you run into them, they will still get you. Let us get you to the church." The pleas not enough as his language means little, he ends up simply yelling "The church, the church" repeatedly.
