EX3 West

The Interrogation

The Neomah looks at you with disgust. Small wounds ooze black blood from its face and eyes. “Kill me then. I’m bound to kill that one, whether I choose to or not.” It nods in Starfall’s direction.

Side note. Add 5 XP and take 5 Solar XP for our first battle finally being done lol.

OOC: so i rolled int + occult trying to figure out ways around binding. Spending 3 motes on exelamcy. Got 6 successes. My thought is twilight anima as a player but im not sure if he knows it and he probably doesnt know everyones caste at the moment.

The Interrogation
 

I’m actually glad you did that. I was trying to think of a way to bring that up. At 6 successes you actually access some of your first age memories and remember that binding a demon as a familiar will indeed break the original binding and may even instill some positive intimacies………

The Interrogation
 

Scythe smiles and asks a question to the other two, “Are either of you a twilight?”

Turning attention to the demon, "Answering my questions may means i might let you go. If you are dead you fail your binding alive you can try again.

Who bound you?

What is the exact wording of your binding?

Are they in the temple?

What defenses do the temple have?"

The Interrogation
 

The creature spits black blood towards you and whimpers “She knows who we are and why we are here.” It nods towards Starfall again. “I don’t know what temple you mean. We were sent here by her former master to kill her or take her back. Those were her exact words for the binding. I don’t want to be here anymore than you do, so if you plan on killing me please make it quick.”

The Interrogation
 

OOC: did my 8 success threaten action fail?

The Interrogation
 

I missed that part. I saw where you rolled to learn about the binding but didn’t see you roll a threaten?

The Interrogation
 

My attack in thr last thread was an attack flurried with threaten

The Interrogation
 

Ah I see it now. That would be why. Go go gadget post edit. New stuff should be showing now.

The Interrogation
 

Wren watches the interrogation cooly. His arms crossed as his eyes go between the demon and Starfall.

The Interrogation
 

Starfall looks toward Scythe, the top half of her fade hidden beneath the shadow of her cloak’s hood. A moment later, the mark of the Twilight caste begins to glow, bathing her face in otherworldly light.

“I would be,” she says to him, then crosses over to the demon he has pinned to the ground. She kneels down, straddling its waist as she takes its wrists in her hands to pin them to the floor of the alley, leaning down until her lips are almost touching the demon’s left ear.

“You know who I am,” she purrs to it, voice low and soft, the shadows in the alley seeming to grow just a bit deeper as she speaks, “and you know the one by whom I am favored. You failed, little thing, and now you have to die.”

That being said, she rises to her feet. Her eyes stay trained upon those of the demon until she has drawn herself up to her feel height, whereupon she steps gracefully away backwards.

“It has nothing to do with the temple,” she murmurs to Scythe, “so if you would be so kind as to end both its misery and our own?”

((Spent 1 peripheral to activate my caste mark.))

The Interrogation
 

Watching the exchange Scythe sighs and speaks, “Assuming this demon has enough essence left to dematiarilize she could still be useful to us. Starfall you have the ability to break her binding with your anima. If you do so she can enter the temple immaterial find our rescue target and get close to her. If she doesnt have the essence to materialize herself i can call her forth with my own anima ability. Allowing someone to defend out charge if we are forced to fight our way there.” Looks at the demon, “Would you be willing to help us in return for being freed from this binding and do you have the essence to what we need?”

The Interrogation
 

Wren raises an eyebrow at this, plan. “Using demons this early in our adventures? With a Wyld hunt sort of in the city? It might not help our case…..”

The Interrogation
 

Scythe shrugs, “We neither summoned the demon nor forced it to be here. Also demon or not if we have an option that not only doesn’t hurt our goal and may actually help it. Why destroy a helpless enemy. I am not keen on unnecessary slaughter. She answered my questions so if there is another option we should at least consider it. Freeing her and getting her aid benefits us now and gives us intelligence on the person trying to hunt down starfall. It may just be a few questions answered but at least we can move on past there. Remeber this is a rescue not a destruction mission having a creature that can move through the realm of spirits may be enough to turn the tide.”

With a smile he looks at the demon, “Would there be a better name the demon or her to call you.?”

The Interrogation
 

“Summoning it or not isnt the point. we are called anathema, if we use demons it furthers an agenda. Dont be so shortsighted. This is my home if we do things that make me have to leaveit nor not return for a lifetime I vote against it.”

The Interrogation
 

Everyone please roll Dexterity + your choice of Awareness, athletics, or dodge.

The Interrogation
 

“Doing the right thing even when its hard is more important then outward apperance. We have another option and we should not discount it. As i said its Starfalls ability and she must decide if its something she is willing to do. " Scythe keeps an eye out for further dangee.

Ooc: 3 success.

The Interrogation
 

((3 successes – holding my next action until I see what we were rolling for.))

The Interrogation
 

(( 3 suxx on dex + awareness)) He sighs deeply and shakes his head. “Having the ability to do something doesnt mean it should be done. There are other methods and we had a plan before running into this…thing.”

The Interrogation
 

The demon lashes out with claws that it has formed during the discussion. Everyone manages to see the transformation and use their respective defenses against it. You are now back to deciding the fate of the demon.

“Navky. My name is Navky. End this so we can be done.” It lowers its head and waits.

The Interrogation
 

Also take 5 XP and 2 Solar.

The Interrogation
 

OOC: in the intrest of giving starfall a chance to respond since she delayed because of not knowing what the roll was for. Just understand that of her amswer is no or maybe since the demon attacked scythe will slay it.

In all honesty he should slay it for trying but that feels like unfair play since starfall has not yet even spoken on this discussion.

The Interrogation
 

No worries.

The Interrogation
 

Starfall leaps into the air, her cloak billowing out around her like the wings of an angry kestrel, her feet tracing a pattern like unto a dance as she reaches the apex of her jump.

“Then by all means, Navky,” she sneers down at the demon, “please allow me to grant your desire. Should there be an afterlife for such as you, give it my regards when you reach it.”

And then the metal stilts of the sandal on her left foot scissor down toward the demon’s head as she makes her wrathful descent.

((Using Martial Arts to make a withering attack on the neomah. 4 successes on the attack, 2 successes on damage.)

The Interrogation
 

Sooooo. This creature is pretty much done for. If you want to attack it I will let you either kill it or knock it out. Your choice. Just let me know and I will move it along.

The Interrogation
 

Starfall gives the demon a last look of contempt, then brings her left foot down onto its throat to send it to whatever lies beyond life for its kind.

“I’ve found that if you are not the one to summon them it is best to give them no trust,” she says to Scythe, then turns to resume walking toward the temple.

The Interrogation
 

" If my memories were to be belived your latent talent is stronger then the binding of sorcery however whats done is done. " Scythe replaces his scythe but also leavea the armoe active taking a moment before he continues to cast invunerable skin of bronze, " allow me to activate the rest of my defenses since the most obvious one is active" Once the spell is complete he continues towards the temple.

OOC: since its out of combat time i didnt bother rolling since it will complete either way it just figures into time.

The Interrogation
 

Wren Follows, a single gang member approaches them after the fight to whisper something in his ear and he nods. " My men and women are slowly congregating. We wont be alone once we reach the temple.’(Gathering my command if necessery/needed). He moves to be loser to Starfall. “I think you made a wise decision. Using him would have painted a bigger target on our backs as far as im concerned. I worry about the day when we use them above all others…” he turns his head to look at the still twitching body.

The Interrogation
 

The body goes up in the same green flame as the others. The alley appears to be empty now. Any that were not involved in the fight have shut their doors and windows. The big man seems to have fled all together. The temple lies at the far end of the street just out of sight in a patch of shadows from the looming buildings…..

The Interrogation
 

Scythe heads for the front door and knocks taking point on the strike into the temple. His steps are heavy due to the full platemail and bronzed skin.
