A Murder of Demons
The group valiantly slices and dices their way through the swarms of demonic birds and creatures swooping down upon them but more and more keep coming they overwhelm even the most dexterous fighters. They peck, bit, and claw yet the front line fighters manage to avoid the worst of their blows. However, being surrounded brings on dread as a flap of wing and high pitch screech erupts from the ruins.

The Nightingale has descended!

Resist Fear 1d10!! or Wild 1d6!! with -2: [7]+[10!!] = 17


Par sees the demon lord coming in and finds himself filled with fear. Pushing himself it takes all his hope and faith to call out, the grounds around him corrupted resisting. But he does not give up. This abomination does not belong here, his voice, his heart, and his power must be silenced. His deep prayer reaches out as a bush falls over the demon.

Despite the frightful appearance of the demon thief, Palach is
Spirit vs Fear: 1d8!!-2: [6]-2 = 4
WD Spirit: 1d6!!-2: [4]-2 = 2
.

There are too many monsters between he and the nightingale. He will have to thin them out. So he proceeds to do just that. His silver vambraces are coated in a holy light given by @Par, lending just that little extra lethality against the enemies arrayed against them. He starts with two of the swarms surrounding @Stephen,

Fighting right: 1d12!!+2: [1]+2 = 3
WD Fighting Right: 1d6!!+2: [5]+2 = 7
Damage right: 1d10!!+2d12!!+8: [3]+[5, 7]+8 = 23
first, then taking a second even more

Fighting left: 1d12!!+2: [2]+2 = 4
WD Fighting left: 1d6!!+2: [14!!]+2 = 16
Damage left with raise: 1d10!!+2d12!!+1d6!!+8: [3]+[3, 4]+[1]+8 = 19
at the one on Stephen's left. Both swarms fall sizzling to the ground. He doesn't break pace, instead moving inside the crumbled wall to the left. He takes up a
immediately 3:00 adjacent to the golem
next to the golem, practically inviting the demons to charge him.

He calls out to the Nightingale in his standard unexcited tone. "Ty mozhesh' sdat'sya seychas ili sdat'sya posle togo, kak ya podrezhu tebe kryl'ya."
You can surrender now or you can surrender after I have clipped your wings.

Home to Roost
The swarms form a cloud of demonic birds around the heroes engulfing them and blocking out most of the surroundings. Palach swings furiously to keep them at bay but many still break through descending upon Stephen (10 AP 8) and the earth elements at the front of the formation (14 AP 8). Palach finally fights his way through the waves toward Stephen who seems ok despite being completely swarmed.

Par uses his magic to silence the nightingale, although the creature has yet to make a sound, it remains silent (success). The remaining two earth elementals try to tangle up the great bird beast, Binding and Entangling the creature. Meanwhile Jose pounces forward ripping through the seemingly endless cloud of demon birds.

Two demon hounds lope back toward their master and begin gnawing at the vines hold it down. They quickly rip away the bonds (Hardness 5) and the Nightingale is free. Unable to speak it takes to the air, suddenly the sky goes dark as another Nightingale appears in the above! It swoops down and sweeps a claw at Palach (make a Smarts roll at -2, target is 8 -2 = 10).

Finally, a pack of hounds rip another one of Radcliffe's element servants to rubble.

Stephen's wards glow with supernatural powers driving back the demons. One of the hounds vanishings from sight while another swarm of demonic birds seems to vaporize. The rest fight against the power of the wards, maintaining a tenuous grip on this dimension. Above them the Nightingale (illusion) swoops toward Par, sensing he is a threat (Deadly Illusion: Roll Smarts -2 vs a 7). The second shadowy figure, still airborne swoops away deeper into the ruins disappearing into an old crumbling tower.
To be clear
The Nightingale (real) has disappeared into the ruins. The illusion remains fighting.
Radecliffe's commands the elemental forces to harry the demons arrayed against them. Winds whip, trees writhe and grab, and the earth shakes throwing them all a kilter. A gust of wind pushes the doppelganger aside temporarily disrupting the illusion - allowing Radecliffe to see it for what it really is. Smoke and mirrors.

Palach wades into the fray with his silver blades flashing, the demons - momentarily distracted by Stephen's magic - take the blows are with two of them fall to the group cut into vicious pieces.

Par summons a massive seraph to fight alongside the group but the target is not there, only its illusory self. Instead the Seraph send another demon back to its plane of damnation.

The Nightingale (illusion) is in the skies and out of reach of Steelbrok's sword so instead he too cuts down some of the swarms surrounding the group. From the other flank Jose is all tooth and claw as he gleefully shreds demons around him.

Seeing the onslaught two hounds move around the corner and wait for the group to come to them so they can pounce!

Par find himself under the demons gaze and is shaken trying to figure out how it got so far from his illusion. When the creature hits him he is knocked to the ground and injured.

Looking around he does the best to clear his head.

Coming to himself Par mentally command the Seriph to attack the demon now attacking himself. Looking for the other demons.

Radecliffe points at the false Nightingale shouting, "That one is a fake! It is an illusion meant to distract us!" With no other enemies around Radecliffe follows after Palach at a discrete distance shifting his spear to his off hand and jerking a sawed off shotgun from his belt. Knowing its service is nearly complete anyway he releases the lone surviving elemental allowing it to return home.

Nesting Dolls
Radecliffe points out the fake Nightingale as the others make quick work of the remaining hounds. Suddenly the snarl of tooth and claw vanishes and an eerie silence descends over the ruins. Demon birds circle silently above but don't engage. Instead a deep "caw" echos through the hallways. The Nightingale has its voice back and is calling to the group.
Into the Ruins
The Nightingale is hiding within the ruins. It's kind of like a funhouse that isn't fun as demons prowl the ruins and the Nightingale occasionally pops out, or sends an illusion to draw your attention. This is a Scheme Pyramid, let me know if you need the rules, to move through.

Everyone picks a card and describes the opposition (more demons, crumbling walls, darkness, etc. and the suit determines the skill you roll. Each face card is an encounter with the Nightingale, maybe an Illusion (smarts), or an Intimidation (spirit), or some other way it tries to mess with you as you advance to its nest.

As Par begins looking for the real Nightingale he moves out with the team. As he moves a powerful feeling of isolation and being watched begins to come over him. Each time he looks and sees another team members they are in cloudy and difficult to see, as if not really here with him. The earth and walls around him distorting and leaving him disoriented.

As Par tries to clear his head it is all he can do to recenter himself falling into a sort of walking meditation he thinks his relationship to the earth, to the sky, to the dimensions around him. He is one with the universe and belongs in this creation. It is these abominations that do not belong.

Radecliffe somehow manages to fast talk his way past a lesser demon mostly by spouting enough nonsensical arguments it left the creature utterly confounded just long enough for Radecliffe to make a getaway. It takes Radecliffe several minutes but he is eventually confident he has given the creature the slip. Unfortunately he just can't shake the feeling he used up way to much luck in the encounter which will probably come back to bite him in the butt before this is all over.

Hall of Mirrors
Passing into the ruins the group can hear the Nightingale singing. Suddenly it appears in front of them, as they blast away they quickly realize it is another illusion! The illusionary assaults, and games, and other cruel pranks intensify as the Nightingale toys with its prey.

Par finds the compounding of tasks are exhausting him in a way he is unused to. As he moves through, he finds he is spending more and more effort avoiding unneeded conflicts. There is simply to many for the team to brute force their way through. The small breaths he gets as he moves are taken up by checking on the others.

Each time he wastes energy fighting the thing, it seems it is simply another illusion as they pass through this psychic hall of mirrors. Par considered himself the Master of Illusion, but he sees now that while talented he had a long way to go before he could be considered a master.

Addressing Diamonds

Palach's advanced senses, coupled with his magic goggles, begin to
Notice -2 scene +4 skill: 1d4!!+2: [2]+2 = 4
WD Notice: 1d6!!+2: [1]+2 = 3
even as convincing as they are. Still, some catch him by surprise, pushing his calculations to the test. Some of the illusions, despite his senses, still draw an attack or two from him, but largely, he is able to discern what he's looking at (or not, as the case may be).

Radcliffe follows after the others staying alert for the opportunity to offer assistance should the need arise. He looks curiously at Steelbrok as he goes running off chasing something that evidently only he could see. Hoping to conserve his remaining strength for the final battle Radcliffe tugs a sawed off shotgun loaded with silver buckshot, keeping it at the ready. He knows the demon is out there toying with them, just waiting to make its move. When it does, Radecliffe thinks grimly, we have to make sure it's his last move for all eternity.

Looks around puzzled as the Nightingale simply vanishes, sees all of his comrades are heading in the other direction. Did no one respond when he called "Follow me"? Work to be done on
must take some Command edges to get everyone charging in the wrong direction!
