    "GLoG." Legion blinks, as if just now remembering something. She baps her wrist against her forehead. "GLoG. Yeah. Let's go. But you might wanna put some pants on first." The Lady gives a small smile.

    "That's right. Coilguns, also." Bellan says, looking curiously at the bowl. He takes a spoon, far too small in his tremendous hand, and starts daintily scooping out some of the food. The giant glances at Cerebrian, spoonfuls of beef disappearing amidst his mandibles. "Cannons? Of what sort?"

    The beast would be easy to approach... if it hadn't just been dragged around a bend in the riverbed.
    There's a sort of clicking around the bend.

    The goat's bulk obscures the low-slung creature that's hauling it around the curves and bends.

    Eventually, they'll reach what looks like a failed set of canal locks. Concrete foundations.
    There's a maintenance tunnel. The goat's legs disappear into it...

    It's a bit too fast for her. And dark in here.
    The goat's feeble flailing may push her off balance, possibly giving the goat-dragger a few seconds of headway.

    Suddenly, the goat stops and there's a noise like a bunch of empty suitcases falling down stairs. Something tumbles in the gloom, clicking.

    Well, I don't like really bright light and there's some actual light in the place I was heading to. Lemme show you.
    She grips the now-dead goat in her claws and continues her backwards journey around a couple of corners. Up a ramp, around another corner, and they're in a room bathed in soft light.
    First of all, the girl can be seen now. She's pale, with brown hair and large dark eyes. Her scorpion body is a dusty brown, which matches the color of the camisole top she's wearing.
    There's a pile of softworn tarps and army blankets in a corner, a battered and scraped old set of lockers on one wall, and other stuff.

    Solid stone of what kind? Such things may suddenly be called into question as stone meets steel. The steel of Keld's gauntleted fist as he simply attempts to slam it through the stone armor. And possibly grab Cessie. He's quite strong that way.

    Whisper, satisfied that Ezra is getting his just punishment, even if it's by water instead of fire, returns to searching for Grass-bringer.

    Since most of the fight (except Cessie and Keld) is over, I'll go ahead and reveal what is found in the wagons:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Wagon 1: Purna's wagon, with Grass-bringer. Fled!

    Wagon 2: Supplies

    Wagon 3: Slaves (one human male, one elf girl, that Harnel has seen) ON FIRE!!!

    Wagon 4: Slaves ('Up' and the troll woman)

    Wagon 5: Slaves (6 slaves)

    Wagon 6: Supplies

    Wagon 7: Slaves (6 slaves) Empty, slaves rescued and at the forest's edge

    Wagon 8: Empty slave wagon (formerly Whisper's)

    All of the slaves are gagged and manacled, hands behind back. The keys will be found on Ezra. The woman called Up in wagon 4 is half dead from starvation and dehydration. The two slaves in wagon 3 have suffered a bit of smoke inhalation, but should recover quickly once put in the open air and ungagged. The rest are in good health.

    Back at the forest's edge, Richard remains encased in glass, one goblin man is unconscious after losing his arm, one human man is unconscious from near asphyxiation, and the other three rescued slaves are healthy.

    Whisper is distraught that Grass-bringer is gone, nearly catatonic with grief.



    Since I'm travelling this weekend, please treat the slaves as npcs and Ezra as godmoddable (or dead, if Cessie chooses to drown him) and carry on without me.

It's most likely larger then him and also pretty determined to protect it's summoner, slamming him with a surprising speed as he attempts to get close.

    Cessie won't drown the centaur however, the elemental will retreat from his lungs eventually and choose to just keep the centaur in place. I can't imagine him going anywhere any time soon after nearly having drowned though.

    With the fight wrapping up, hopefully no one will noticed the glamoured glass-head moving at a slow jog into the forest. He's invisible now, and since Cessie's occupied, Nayir hopes she won't be able to spot him leaving.


    ((I'm going to do a bit of godmodding to wrap things up. Let me know if I went too far and I'll edit.))

    Captured slavers:

    2. Balik: A male goblin with an amputated arm, unconscious but stable
    3. Arturo: Unconscious human male
    4. Lisor: Female goblin, missing a few toes** (Harnel)
    5. Richard: human male, encased in glass

    ((If anyone wants to claim a slave to make a PC of them, let me know. The ones with ** already have players.))

    "The nightskinned owner woman took Grass-bringer away," Whisper says mournfully. "What if I never see him again?" She doesn't appear to be talking to anyone in particular.

    After having taken Keld and put him with Erza (and possibly having someone tying them up). She goes to unravel the glass spell on Richard and let's her other elementals keep a good check on the slaves.

    She summons a water elemental to help the dehydrated woman.

    "Nightskinned owner woman? I didn't see her, you don't know where she went? There might be ways of tracking her." The mage glances at the others for ideas.

    Harnel will attempt to pat Whisper on the back, trying to comfort her, "I promise you, I'll do my best to find her. If I have anything to say about it, You'll see grass-bringer again."

    "Whisper's talking about an elf with midnight skin, Cessie. She was one of the leaders of the group, I think."

    "She means Purna," Kent says. "A drow or dark elf of some kind. She was Ezra's partner - some kind of magic user."

    "Priestess," Ushna says. "She used potions to control us."

    "Up" is helped a bit by the elemental, but it's going to take time for her to be healed.

    The halfling family is huddled together, hugging each other and crying in relief.

    ((As extensive as you like, Harnel. It was the damage done by Jasper's overstrained teleport. ))

    ((Going to wait for Murkus to say if Richard's glass spell was undone or not))

    Since I was 20, so about 20 years.
    She looks around 20. I guess her race ages at half-speed.
    Anyway, she gets a pair of large steaks in her claws and heads out into the main room and into another room, this one a kitchen. This place is the old crew quarters for the engineers...

    The pair of wolfen found with the halflings had been heavily chained, shackled until they could barely move. Both were muzzled, and their claws look like they were clipped down to just a nub. It's not visible under their ratty tan fur, but they've been badly beaten for killing a guard who came for Pansy one night, and mauling a couple others. The only visible mark on one, is a swollen eye, a few days old.

    When they're finally unchained, one, with red stripes painted down one arm, kneels down next to the halfling family, holding them all close, trying to make them feel safe and comfortable.

    The other, blue chevrons painted onto his back, staggers out of the wagon and begins making his way to Renetta, his good eye showing deep concern.
