Re: [Chapter 1.3] A Theater of Gods

As in all good warriors, Jane displayed no hesitation. There was the slightest pause after she landed as the gunslinger found her sky-legs. Then she drew her holstered revolver, and set her sights on those six forward-facing eyes. A blind spot would be a huge boon to any potential targets. Jane unle...

Re: [Episode 2] Two Minds, One Body

Johann, not knowing where to go, stood dumbfounded long enough for Manon to strike a second time. Realizing the error of his ways, he fled before he could be confused a third time, completely at a loss as to how he would find-- "Chuffy!" he exclaimed in his eureka moment. The dog produced an eager, ...

Re: [Episode 2] Two Minds, One Body

"Maybe-" before Johann could make his suggestion, the hall burst to life with groggy students and swinging doors. He was immediately overwhelmed and subsumed by silence. Unconsciously, he sidled to one wall. Sensing his anxiety, Chuffy placed his skull under one of Johann's hands, which earned him a...

Re: [Episode 2] Two Minds, One Body

Johann scratched at his turban while he listened to her rapidfire explanation. His eyes were directed at his feet, so he could focus on her words, but he realized he was still in his sleep clothes: a hooded long-sleeve and thigh-length athletic shorts. "...seen Drysi?" He shook his head. "...a bad p...

Re: [Episode 2] Two Minds, One Body

Chuffy gave a disconcerted grumble. Johann jumped in his seat, the Abridged Necronomicon crashing to the ground. Startled eyes glanced around the common room for trouble, but saw nothing. The necromancer gave Chuffy a concerned look. "What's wrong, Chuff?" The dog rose to its feet, and padded warily...

Re: [Chapter 1.3] A Theater of Gods

The gunslinger's path was as steady and even as her trigger fingers, in sync with a rhythm only her body knew: the pull, the recoil, the reset; each perfectly timed from a decade of grueling training and harrowing conflict. Aurus was cracking, melting, falling apart, but he was nowhere near defeated...

Re: Session 1: Drysi Maelgwyn

Lady Sumedha pondered the simple question for several seconds. "I think writing it down would help you the most." She rose and approached her desk once more. "So, I'm going to give you some homework. Due in... two weeks, let's say." She sat. "Very simple." She picked up a pen and began to write in h...

Re: Session 1: Drysi Maelgwyn

All the pieces were falling perfectly into place for Dr. Sumedha as she listened and led Drysi through the final motions. This seed in the young student's mind was sowing wild discord in her, leading her to behavior that was contrary to her nature. She quickly sought out an appropriate metaphor. "Pi...

Re: [Aside] Unfound Destiny

Zhangjie had a subdued, smug smile on his face as he folded his arms over his chest. The glowing veins along his chin seemed to turn up the brightness a degree, as if stimulated by his amusement. "Destiny, please , these feels like a pretty drastic overreaction, which I think only makes our point fo...

Re: [Aside] Unfound Destiny

Uso thumbed toward Kashevski. "Kash is right, y'know. The Draths would have better luck in winter than either of us would have of convincing you to stop hunting down a century-old relic with virtually no leads." He waved a hand as if brushing the topic aside. "Regardless, the report is why we're her...
