Yeah, I imagine she unsummoned it. That doesn't mean she can't summon it again... discreetly... :ninja: :P

 

I actually left that open as an escape possibility, but I admit I totally just realized that I neglected to mention Maugrimm, who also would've just been killed and eaten. So, uh, he will magically come bounding out of the mountains to happily reunite with Agethar once everyone is free, like the dogs in Homeward Bound, or something. Sorry about that. :P

I assume she'd still have to get out of the void iron in order to do that? Or does void iron not affect that kind of magic?

That... is actually a very good question. Void iron does block spiritual magic, but does it block a familiar's anchor? Hmm.

 

I'm going to go with "no," at least in this situation, so that you have something to do, if nothing else. :P

Just a few questions.

1: Alden is in the cage with the rest of the Humans, and not with Hallvard, right? It was a bit confusing in the post.
2: Can he change out of his disguise? And what abilities would he have?

Aside from that, I'm excited to get this going.

1. Yes, he's in the cage with the humans. Thought I clarified that; sorry. Might've only done that in my outline and forgot to put it in the final post.

 

2. Demon-kin can change into, and out of, their human disguise at will. It's not painful at all, either. Maintaining the human disguise takes a small, but constant, amount of concentration.

 

As a demon-kin, you have innate demonic magic; for more info on their powers in general (including their human form), see this little section on the wiki. If you haven't already, of course. :P You also have some abilities based on the fact that you're a demon of Vengeance, such as a curse you can put on individuals to lower their defenses (i.e. dice rolls) against you for a time, as you enact your vengeance upon them.

 

Your demonic magic can vary; your most powerful magic would simply be soul related, as most black magic is: harming another's soul and weakening them, drawing another's life force into your own body, and minor necromancy spells.

 

Using any of your demonic abilities, however, draws you closer to your demonic corruption and increases your urges, as this magic is evil in nature. As for your true form, it is as most demonkin of Vengeance are: pale skin; bright, frost blue eyes; and black feathered wings.

Don't worry, I will forgive you for now, as I was prepared for this situation.

So, does that go for Bale, or can he telekineticaly do stuff?

Telekinesis is just arcane magic, so yes, that's definitely blocked.

Alright.

 

Also, I just posted. I assumed that everybody, not just the mages, were restrained (and that Agethar could break free of such restraints), and that Guldarnok is infamous enough to be the subject of rumors.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong on either account.

Not everyone is restrained (just the mages); otherwise it's all fine. ;)

 

Everyone is in cages, so that's restraint enough for the normal folk. :P

Hmm... I just realized something, Wolfy: Where the heck is Nefer's horse? (Maybe he's hanging out in the woods with Maugrim having fun and whimsical adventures? *crosses fingers*  :D  )

 

Realistically, though, if you want horsie to be dead, I can't exactly argue with you. That might be one bit of convenient providence too far.  :P

I guess Agether can just ask if Alden needs help?

Dalton, you may wanna have Agethar calm his veritable tits over breaking people out of their shackles so easily. Those are void-iron. They won't just bend like tin foil. This is gonna be a tough strength test requiring a roll, even for a ridiculously strong character. Like, go and grab a piece of re-bar and try to bend that... now imagine it being in a circle around somebody else's wrist, where you don't have the advantage of grip or leverage... Many people, not just you, often seem to think that slipping out of manacles or breaking restraints is easy, but if they weren't effective, there would be no point in using them. Being bound by shackles and chains is serious business, and even the hugest of beastfolk can be restrained by ordinary iron forged thick enough. Even roughly hammered void iron is gonna be stronger than that.

If I might make a suggestion, perhaps he should try using his head before his muscles. Venators are resourceful folks, and I'm sure Agethar knows at least a little about how manacles work based on past experience using them on beastfolk and other monsters when they need to be subdued. Perhaps he could try picking the lock, or looking for a weakness to exploit, like a weak hinge that could have the pin removed with a stick or something. 

Just outright bending the metal might sound awesome, but it's far from realistic, and just doesn't make for as dramatic and tense of a story, and I know you're way creative enough to come up with something more original. ;)

You beat me to the punch, Ambad!  Well, at least Dalton can't say I'm the only one who chastises him for mistakes now, lol.

 

I was going to say you took the words right out of my mouth, but let's be honest, I probably would have been more along the lines of:

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

In other news, look who's back!  Errant's favorite Venator, Night Hunter edition!  Now with the exclusive Percula Saffron companion!  XD  Glad to see we're not done RPing with the longest-serving and rightfully popular NPC yet.

You're still the one who does it the most frequently, lol.

 

Anyways, I'm gonna post now.
