Gretta accepted the gifts of the newly minted cosmo knight. Something had also changed within her. Determination had settled in where fright had been. She looked up at @Sir Ndreare not shying from his brillance, instead accepting it. Her hands gripped his former weapons as she said with a sense of humble fortitude, ”Thank you heavenly knight. I will do what I am here to do, and do it well with these.”
One of the rangers, a dark skinned man pointed at a rocky formation whispering unnerved, ”There... something in the rock.” A light was brought to bare and nothing was behind the stalagmite as the ship listlessly passed. Karl laughed flexing his biceps and snapping a quick selfie. He wrapped a muscle bound arm around the man grinning, ” Don’t worry ranger, if death comes it will meet a mountain. Did I ever tell you the time my papa killed Angerworm?”
Audrey, standing near, admonished Karl for recklessly tempting the return of such a foe, ”Quiet Karl! Least you tempt something darker to emerge...” She grew quiet gathering some technowizard doodads as something sounded in the waterway. split splat splash.
The haughty taunting voice echoed again, ”Hansy... How do skin a cat? Or take apart a robot? Haha... Oh this is rich, I got some wench going on and on about Kir... Is he even with you? I thought his god died... Hahaha. You and your mates are too late. From what I gather these vamps are one bottle of Malort away from making themselves invulnerable. It’s hammer time...”
Clang, something from above was dropped onto the deck. A silver skull medallion! The voice of Hans’ Nemisis, Justin Hammer boomed clearly enhanced this time by mechanical means, ”See what I am saying Hansy..! Normally, I would not want these vamps or Lord Ruthvan to cover the land in darkness, but a deal is a deal. I get you, they get the world. Hehe... Fair I would say.” The heroes allies glance at the silver skull medallion but none pick it up or touch it.
The breathing of the huddled rangers looking out with laser weapons at the ready, and the occasional groan of the wooden hull was broken by Soldad stepping out of the hold. His voice was low and poignant and his wizened hand poked out into the darkness, ”Do you hear them? Do you hear the groan of their exoskeletons?” He cast his gaze out, ” Be ready... I can smell blood, and we have a long way yet to go.”
The shadows near the boat and in the rocks loomed large, danger was near, and the exit while straight ahead was far... Suddenly the shadows stirred, and a small lone row boat appeared in front of yours.
Soladad yelled, ”Look out, its a trap!” Something was about to happen!
Please post a reaction or any RP, but end your post with a notice roll at -4(if you lack any way to deal with darkness like infrared, nightvision, or lowlight, make the notice at -6), danger sense and or sixth sense applies. Just make one notice roll and we will count it accordingly. Note: the foes are not supernatural monsters or supernatural evil. I think some folks get bonuses against those kinds of creatures.
After you post, we will move into some fun combat.
Note: You are at full PPE and ISP.
