Session Start: Sun Jul 21 11:52:26 2019 Session Ident: #gnomeland
* Daifan is now known as Korivan
* NPC1 ( has joined #gnomeland
* NPC2 ( has joined #gnomeland
<YOAW_Narrator> Check check?
<May> yo yo
<Induriel> Hi ho
<May> Who you calling a ho?
<Induriel> :P
<YOAW_Narrator> I have some stuff in mind, but did anyone have anything specific they wanted to do today?
<Induriel> Nope
<May> I do want to ask my uncle for more details on that crown, and maybe do some research on it, but other than that no.
<Induriel> I'll just sit and eat unspiced crackers in the darkness. :D
* Eyllia ( has joined #gnomeland
<YOAW_Narrator> Heh
<YOAW_Narrator> Heya Terry
<Eyllia> hello
<YOAW_Narrator> How goes?
<Eyllia> doing ok... need to get lunch though
<YOAW_Narrator> Fair
<YOAW_Narrator> Lunch is good. You need lunch to live. :)
<Eyllia> on that note, brb
<YOAW_Narrator> Tuck, you want to go ahead with talking to Sahhiru about the crown?
* NPC1 is now known as Sahhiru
<May> sure
* May will send a messenger to have him meet her in the library.
* Sahhiru will meet her at his earliest convenience.
<Sahhiru> You sent for me?
<May> Uncle... yes. Thank you.
* May will set aside the scroll she's been reading.
* Sahhiru says with an mildly amused but proud smile.
<May> Uncle... I need to know more about the crown.
* Sahhiru sighs.
<Sahhiru> Yes, you do.
* Sahhiru takes a moment to consider.
* May won't rush him as it's obviously something he'd rather not talk about.
<Sahhiru> As I said before, I recognize its like.
<May> From 'Home', you said...
<Sahhiru> I truly do not understand how Lady Morelos came to possess such a thing, and I am deeply curious.
* Sahhiru nods.
<Sahhiru> You're of course familiar with the Lords of the Nine.
<May> (I assume May is, but I am not)
<YOAW_Narrator> (The lords of the Nine Hells, essentially Turath's pantheon of gods)
<May> Of course I am.
* YOAW_Narrator pauses again.
<YOAW_Narrator> (ww)
* Sahhiru pauses again.
<Sahhiru> They wear such crowns.
<May> This... belonged to a Lord of Hell?
* Sahhiru nods.
<May> I take it that they will probably want it back.
<Sahhiru> Any of my kind would recognize one.
<Sahhiru> It is perhaps more complicated than that.
<Sahhiru> It is...a mantle of authority, from Asmodeus himself.
<Sahhiru> It holds power of its own, and strengthens its bearer.
<Sahhiru> Mamitu, with that crown, one could lay claim to one of the Nine Realms.
<May> ...
<Sahhiru> Which is not to say one could take or hold it single-handedly.
<May> Surely it takes more than possession of a crown to do so.
* Sahhiru nods.
<May> Which realm does it belong to?
<Sahhiru> I am not sure.
<Sahhiru> I have been searching my memory, but the crown is...overwhelming.
<May> I'll need to research. Surely if the crowns are that important there are references to them. Depictions maybe.
<May> Regardless... if anyone knew it was here. Any of the other Lords... or the other powerful courts...
* Sahhiru nods.
<Sahhiru> As I said, it makes us a target.
<Sahhiru> It would be a beacon to my people, and their enemies.
* May considers.
<May> Damnit.
* Sahhiru nods sympathetically.
<May> We need to know more.
<Sahhiru> I agree. I may be able to make some discreet inquiries to some old allies.
<May> I will check the library.
<Sahhiru> Kalu or Temu might be helpful resources, but the majority of what they know, or that you will find in your library, will be filtered through mortal sources.
<May> Well, we mortals can be pretty observant sometimes.
* Sahhiru smiles.
<Sahhiru> Yes, but there's only so much you can see.
* May rolls her eyes but smiles.
<May> So research, containment, and secrecy. Luckily those are things we can do.
<May> I still want to know if it was the crown that blinded Induriel or something that the Queen did.
<Sahhiru> My guess would be the crown.
* May nods.
<May> Then maybe there will be a reference to it in the literature.
<Sahhiru> I believe all Morelos did was provide the box and key.
<May> Anyway, thank you for being honest with me. I know you don't like talking about... home.
<Sahhiru> Without a bearer, the crown's might lacks a focus.
* Sahhiru nod.
<Sahhiru> It is...difficult.
<Sahhiru> But, in this case, necessary.
<May> If you remember anything else, or if you discover anything... please tell me. The more I know the better I can deal with this.
<Sahhiru> Of course. We bear this burden together, esibaru.
* May gives him a hug.
* Sahhiru hugs back.
<Korivan> !roll 6d6
* Lan-werk rolls for Korivan: [ 6d6 ] getting [ 6 2 6 4 2 4 ] for a total of [ 24 ].
<Korivan> (22 to scry on my missing dudes)
* Sahhiru is now known as Hrieffen_Spirit
<YOAW_Narrator> The bad news is your messenger is dead. The good news is the ancestors were able to find their spirit and bring it to report to you.
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Gaath...
<Hrieffen_Spirit> How have I returned?
<Hrieffen_Spirit> I was on my way back...
<Korivan> The ancestors have called your spirit to me, now that you have joined them _
<Korivan> Tell me your fate
<Hrieffen_Spirit> I...went to find the Ankai...I found them in battle
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Foul beasts...demons...
<Hrieffen_Spirit> I meant to bring word...
<Hrieffen_Spirit> I remember claws...pain...howling...
<Korivan> you will be ...avenged
* Hrieffen_Spirit nods hesitantly.
<Korivan> tell me of this demon force
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Some like bulls...great horns...some like insects...many like gabburim...twisted and foul
* Korivan nods
<Korivan> How many?
<Korivan> (also would those types together mean anything to me?)
<YOAW_Narrator> (Offhand, you recognize them somewhat, but demons come in a lot of shapes, sizes, and horde compositions.)
<Korivan> (figures)
<YOAW_Narrator> (The bull ones and the gabburim-looking ones were favored by Maazikai summoners, though)
<Korivan> (yeah I thought they sounded familiar >.>)
<Korivan> (is he gonna answer my question?)
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Few of the bull-demons...and of the bug creatures...many of the others
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Dozens...
<Hrieffen_Spirit> The Ankai...took refuge in their caves...
<Hrieffen_Spirit> Trapped...
* Korivan nods
<Korivan> We will call back our forces... and you, Hrieffen Askrult Fyl... will go to Avelas to join the ancestors in the eternal battle _
<Korivan> (so follow up here is - send a runner to Kraaz and Mygal, and probably go to the city myself)
<Hrieffen_Spirit> I serve Bane and the Hrieffen...
<YOAW_Narrator> (Well, presumably you're at the city? You just lead Urath and her people there)
<YOAW_Narrator> (And no reason you couldn't scry from there)
<Korivan> (right, yes :x)
<Korivan> (Then I should go talk to May)
<Korivan> (I do need to do rithes for Fyl and anyone else who was with them too)
<YOAW_Narrator> (Valrek can do rites for Fyl, if you want to go talk to May quickly. Time may be of the essence.)
<Korivan> (good good. the aprentices can help him)
<YOAW_Narrator> (Faasha will be solemnly eager to do so.)
<May> (#YOAW?)
<Korivan> (sure, unless Josh wants sahhiru there?)
<Korivan> (in w\hich case maye let somene else have a scene?)
<YOAW_Narrator> (Yeah, we can switch over to Induriel for the moment)
* lan_phone ( Quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
<Induriel> (Yay!)
<YOAW_Narrator> Klorro or Klooro
<YOAW_Narrator> Gotta make it goblin-y ;)
<Induriel> ww
* Hrieffen_Spirit is now known as Laito
<Laito> (Whoops, yes)
<Induriel> (Yay!)
<Induriel> (I've been waiting for him to come chat with me. :D )
<Laito> (Them ;))
* Laito will call upon Induriel after the meeting with May, if possible
* Induriel has returned to his apartments
* Laito will knock politely.
* Induriel has Laito admitted, and invites him to sit while Mifflepon brings refreshments
<Laito> Thank you for your hospitality, ambassador.
* Induriel nods
<Induriel> It is my pleasure, Captain. What can I do for you?
<Laito> I had merely hoped for more private time to speak with you, one servant of Aethrennar to another.
<Induriel> Of course.
<Laito> I thought you might have some insight into the situation here.
<Laito> I'm still learning the lay of the land, as it were.
<Induriel> Well. I'm afraid I am not a professional diplomat, as you may already know. However, I'm happy to help if I can.
<Induriel> I was appointed in hopes that my previous relationship with Heri Mamitu would be of benefit.
<Laito> Do you feel it has?
* Induriel smiles wryly.
<Induriel> Alas, I'm afraid it is a double-edged sword in some ways.
<Laito> Oh? How so?
<Induriel> I think - and hope - that she still respects me as her old tutor. However, she is also eager to prove herself to me...
<Induriel> particular, to establish her independence.
<Induriel> You are aware that the Vanilorrans have established a trade embassy here?
<Induriel> I count that a signal failure on my part, alas.
<Laito> She is young. It is youth's prerogative to break from teachers and parents.
<Laito> I had heard.
<Induriel> Yes, of course. I simply regret that she has chosen this means of doing so.
<Laito> That seems...ill-advised on Siru Lalu's part, but I'm sure you told her that.
<Laito> My wayward kin are...more entrenched than I would like, in many senses.
<Induriel> Oh?
<Laito> Vanilorra is a site sacred to my liege Corellon, and they are traitors to his rightful deputy, our Queen Alcarinel.
<Laito> That they have held it so long in defiance is an affront to the Seldarine and all elduar.
* Laito sighs.
<Induriel> Yes, alas.
<Laito> Can you tell me of the representatives they have sent?
<Induriel> They sent a squadron of what appear to be highly trained warriors. They are led by two sisters of the former House Camellia:
<Induriel> Ettelëa, who is the formal "ambassador", I suppose...
<Induriel> ...and Lócë, who is of a more martial bent.
<Induriel> The Traitor chose his emissaries well, I fear.
* curtana_phone (~AndChat1693.167.194.46) has joined #gnomeland
<Laito> I am familiar with them. Their parents were friends of mine.
<Laito> It is sad to see them led so far astray.
<Induriel> I understand that they are both too young to have been participants when the great schism occurred. I am sure they are simply following what they have been told.
<Induriel> They are both youthful, an excellent counterpoint to myself. Exactly the sort who could appeal to a young woman eager to prove herself wiser than her mentors...
<Induriel> And of course it can seem churlish to hold them responsible for events they had no part in.
<Laito> Iomelinde was always a brilliant strategist and politician.
<Laito> That's why the Queen relied on him so.
<Induriel> Indeed.
<Laito> This breach has been a terrible wound for our people.
<Induriel> I have tried to point this out to Mamitu, but I fear I must tread lightly.
<Laito> As all ambassadors must. I'm sure it is a difficult position.
<Laito> That is why I confine myself to battles of a physical nature.
<Induriel> Yes.
<Laito> When conflict is necessary.
<Induriel> Well, I am sure you will find plenty of such activity here.
<Laito> And it seems to somehow have become moreso after the empires fell.
<Laito> Yes, this is quite the contested land, it would seem.
<Induriel> Not only in battle. Mamitu also has a number of suitors.
<Laito> Oh?
* curtana_phone is now known as Laris
<Induriel> I expect you are already aware that the Queen's cherished cousin, Lord Eren, is here in Nesu Abamatu.
* NPC2 is now known as Sahhiru
* Laito chuckles.
<Laito> I had heard.
* Induriel throws up his hands in exasperation
<Laito> And one of Roane's children as well, if I recall.
<Induriel> I am not entirely informed of the circumstances that led to Lord Eren, ah, 'deciding' to visit; but I know enough to be sure I don't want to know more. :/
<Induriel> And yes, Lord Faire is also here.
<Laito> Eren is harmless.
<Laito> Well, that's not entirely correct.
<Laito> But he's easily managed.
<Induriel> Well, so far we have managed to avoid any incidents.
<Laito> That's good to hear.
<Laito> I take it our people are not the only ones courting Siru Lalu?
<Induriel> No. Lugal Corvis went to Thantopolis not too long ago, and brought back his own host of suitors.
<Laito> Of course.
<Laito> Has she shown any favor?
<Induriel> Caelius Latens Sakkors of his own people; Sagax Nykona, who shares Mamitu's own heritage; and Marcus Castus Zorika of the vrykola.
<Laito> Sakkors is an old House, and I knew a few Nykona before the Doom. Zorika...I'm not familiar.
<Induriel> He, alas, does not seem to favour Aethrennar.
<Induriel> I had an unpleasant conversation with him when he first arrived, and had to steer Lord Eren away from him.
<Induriel> He seems to see us as representatives of an unwanted past, and the Traitor's faction as the future.
* Laito sighs.
<Laito> A fashionable, if poorly thought out, opinion in Thantopolis, I hear.
<Induriel> Caelius Sakkors, on the other hand, studied in our city and seems far more sympathetic to us.
<Induriel> Sagax did not want to comment... which leads me to believe he is more of Zorika's opinion than Caelius'.
<Induriel> I'm afraid I don't know which of them all Mamitu will choose, if any.
<Induriel> I *think
* she likes Lord Faire. It appears that she spends time with him, and they have common interests.
<Induriel> Unfortunately she has also spent not inconsiderable time with Zorika.
<Induriel> The rest... appear to be on even footing, so far as I can tell.
<Laito> Alas, there is only so much you can do to influence her decision.
<Laito> Does she seem likely to make a personal decision, or a political one?
* Induriel sighs
<Induriel> Who can tell?
<Induriel> It will most likely be a combination of the two, I expect.
<Induriel> I am sure politics will play a significant role in the choice.
<Induriel> However, it must also be someone she likes and can trust. And... I do want her to be *happy*.
<Laito> You're sentiment does you credit.
<Laito> Ours are the gods of love and beauty, as well as their other spheres.
<Induriel> Yes.
<Induriel> She appears to have an attachment to the Hrieffen leader, Gaath Korivan.
<Laito> An attachment?
<Induriel> But that is a separate type of relationship, of course. Marriage there is not on the table.
<Laito> Ah, an 'attachment.'
<Laito> I would think not, no.
<Induriel> Well, if it can be called that. A "thing"?
<Induriel> Obviously there is an alliance, but this is apart from that. Physical enjoyment.
* Induriel shrugs
<Laito> Again, she's young, and, unlike us, she won't stay that way. Far be it from me to judge her taking what pleasures she finds.
<Induriel> Of course. I think our people take a most sensible and sophisticated approach to such things.
<Laito> And the Turathi a close second to our 'sophistication.'
* Induriel smiles, possibly thinking of Sahirru...
<Induriel> Indeed.
<Induriel> Oh. There's a dragon.
* Induriel says suddenly.
<Laito> I understand the need for the bloodline alliances among the nobility, but it seems...limiting at time.
<Laito> ...I'm sorry?
<Induriel> Forgive me, that is a non-sequitur. But important for you to know!
<Induriel> Not too long ago, a dragon named Gladius arrived here with his daughter Meghan and a significant number of his people... kobolds.
<Induriel> They came in peace, thankfully.
<Induriel> They are still here.
<Laito> There is a dragon, here, in Nesu Abamatu.
<Laito> I'm surprised Siru Lalu didn't try to have him killed immediately.
<Laito> The Turathi were always zealots on that front.
<Induriel> Well, he is a *dragon*. Slaying such would have been no easy task.
<Induriel> As we found, actually... an enemy of his followed him here, and the entire city was forced to resist her. Kepeskmiiriv, was her name.
<Induriel> Gladius is not actually within the city, I understand. Though it is not banned to him; he and his people have simply decided to establish themselves outside it for now.
<Induriel> They are cohabiting peacefully with other peoples of the region.
<Laito> Is ally?
<Laito> Or merely not an enemy?
<Induriel> They are not involved in politics so far as a I know... but they are a *factor*.
<Induriel> He is the latter, I think. I would not expect him to mobilize to help Mamitu in her wars... but I expect he could be counted on to help defend the city, should it be attacked.
<Induriel> I don't really know, though.
<Induriel> I did meet him, and he was entirely civil and cultured.
<Laito> Even only as a defensive asset, that is significant.
<Induriel> Indeed!
<Laito> Is he Arkhosian?
<Induriel> He was, but no longer considers that relevant.
<Laito> That's good, at least.
<Induriel> He and his people were travelling this way on a different quest...
<Laito> A quest?
* Sahhiru is now known as Rufus_Metillius
<Induriel> Yes. They were in search of another dragon, one who was on the same level of power as Ratha and Arkhos. One named Terus?
<Laito> I've never heard of them, but I was never a scholar of such.
<Induriel> A third child of Tiamat and Bahamut.
<Induriel> With the fall of both Arkosia and Bael Turath, this Gladius decided to go in search of this third one in a quest for knowledge.
<Induriel> In any case, he and his people have been entirely peaceful since their arrival here.
<Induriel> And they owe us all something of a favour, as we helped significantly in defeating Kepeskmiiriv.
<Laito> I never shared the Turathi's hatred of dragonkind. The few I've met I found to be, well, people. For good and ill.
<Induriel> Though I'm not sure one can press such a point with a dragon. :/
* Laito chuckles quietly.
<Laito> "For they are quick to anger..."
* Induriel shudders
<Induriel> Well, as I say, he was perfectly civil the one time I sought him out to pay my respects.
<Induriel> I just thought of him when you mentioned the Turathi.
<Laito> Well, it seems the situation here is significantly more complicated than I had been lead to believe.
<Laito> At least I am now informed.
<Induriel> I am glad to have been of service.
<Induriel> I will certainly consult my aide, Valtheriel, as to other issues that may be of interest to you.
<Induriel> And my bodyguard and military advisor Malliel can also doubtless offer some insight.
<Laito> I'll be sure to avail myself of their services. Thank you again for your aid and hospitality.
<Induriel> It is my pleasure, Captain. Please do not hesitate to let me know if and when I can be of further service to you.
<Laito> Likewise, ambassador.
* Induriel rises and bows, and sees his guest out. Er, guides his guest out. :P
<YOAW_Narrator> Eyllia, I believe you returned to Hearthspire with your prisoners?
<Eyllia> (yep)
<YOAW_Narrator> You and the Drake's crew will have a bit of time ashore in Hearthspire. House forces take custody of the prisoners to question them further.
<YOAW_Narrator> Eyricia will send for Eyllia later that evening.
* Laito is now known as Eyricia
* Eyllia arrives in ships attire, still full of nervous energy
<YOAW_Narrator> A servant will see you into your mother's private chamber, the outer portion of which serves as an office.
* Eyricia sits at a table strewn with maps, charts, and other papers. She looks up as you enter and smiles.
<Eyricia> It is good to see you home again, daughter, though not under such circumstances.
<Eyricia> You did well saving that ship.
<Eyllia> I assume you've looked at the report on what the Drake found?
<Eyllia> We failed at saving the fisherman, which is what they were after
<Eyllia> How do we protect against an enemy that can create portals from another plane?
<Eyricia> Even losing one of our people is a tragedy, but the entire ship would have been lost if you weren't there.
* Eyricia sighs.
<Eyricia> I have our people attempting to find a solution to that as we speak.
<Eyricia> Some believe we should move on, abandon these islands. More don't want to give up the refuge we've found.
<Eyricia> We've little enough forces to patrol the area.
<Eyllia> Just when I thought things were turning around for us... it was too much to hope for
<YOAW_Narrator> (May and Korivan want to do the scrying right now? Or are you busy with new house stuff, Heather?)
<Eyricia> It's a problem, not a crisis. Not yet.
<Eyricia> I was hoping our nearby allies might be willing to help.
<Eyricia> Or this Lord Gladius I have heard about. Our people have treated with dragonfolk before.
<Eyllia> That should be easy enough to broach. Im sure Nēšu Abamātu would be interested in these raiders as well
* Eyricia nods.
* Eyricia motions for you to have a seat.
<Eyricia> These islands are a windfall we can't afford to lose.
* Eyllia will reluctantly sit
<Eyllia> I know that
<Eyricia> I know you do.
<Eyricia> I'm's oddly more difficult coordinating now that we have somewhere to defend.
* Eyricia smiles wearily.
<Eyllia> What can I do to help?
* Eyricia smiles more pleasantly.
<Eyricia> About what you are doing, dear.
<Eyricia> How fares the Drake?
* lan_phone ( has joined #gnomeland
<Eyllia> She is good. Repairs from the trip up river are solid and no real damage in the fight with the raiders
<Eyllia> the crew is holding up good too, although this recent encounter has unnerved them a bit, but that expected.
* Eyricia nods.
<Eyllia> If we need to head our right away, we'll be ready
<Eyricia> Your brother still wants me to let him go with you.
<Eyricia> He's quite jealous of your exploits.
<Eyllia> I'd love to have him along, but he's still a little young.
<Eyricia> Perhaps you can explain that to him.
<Eyricia> Lysa is well?
<Eyllia> If were bound for Nēšu Abamātu and back, it should be safe enough and give him a feel for the sea
<Eyllia> She is saucy and disrespectful, so she is quite well.
* Eyricia smiles.
<Eyricia> She takes after her mother.
* Eyricia considers.
* Eyricia nods thoughtfully.
<Eyllia> regardless, I can talk to Xyrin
<Eyricia> Perhaps you should take him with you, just to Nesu Abamatu.
<Eyricia> To court as well, if you can. He'll need to learn to navigate those waters.
<Eyllia> there is typically something going on which I'm sure he can attend
<Eyllia> He is going to be so excited
* Eyllia beams
* Eyricia smiles.
<Eyllia> Am I bringing a prisoner with me, or just reports?
* Eyricia frowns.
<Eyricia> It might be prudent to bring one of the prisoners along with you.
<Eyricia> Our allies might want to question them themselves.
* Eyllia nods
<Eyllia> how soon do I leave?
<Eyricia> On the morning tide. Surely your crew have earned a night with their families.
<Eyllia> Agreed
<Eyricia> And you can stay and have a meal with your family, as well.
* Eyllia nods
<Eyricia> Now why don't you go tell your brother he gets to go with you?
<Eyricia> I'll attend to...this.
* Eyricia motions at the paperwork.
<Eyllia> I'm on it
* Eyllia hops up
* May will work on getting the scrying circle set up, having Korivan help where he can.
<May> I know this isn't your normal style, but we should be able to meld our energies well enough for it to work.
* Korivan nods, looking around and frownign at all the unfamiliar symbols
<Korivan> I don't know.... that this is the right time for that kind of rite _
<May> ...scrying? I thought that was the whole point?
<May> Don't worry, I'll walk you through it.
* Korivan grins
<Korivan> I have.... done this before
<May> Then what are you... oh... oh for... is that all you think about?
<Korivan> no
* May sighs.
<Korivan> its...nicer than demons :p
<May> Ok, I have to give you that.
* May grins.
<Korivan> What do you...neeed
* Korivan will let you take point, since this is your space
<May> Ok, let's see... light the incense and then sit just outside the circle.
* May will also sit crosslegged outside the circle.
* Korivan can do that
* May will also light a small fire in a bowl in the center of the circle.
<YOAW_Narrator> (Y'all can roll Will (or Knowledge if you prefer) whenever you want ;))
<May> Now concentrate your thoughts and your energies on the fire. Let it be guided by you to show you what you want to see.
<Korivan> (+ rituals?)
* Korivan rolls [ 6d6 ] getting [ 1 1 4 3 5 4 ] for a total of [ 18 ]
<May> !roll 5d6
* Korivan rolls for May: [ 5d6 ] getting [ 6 1 6 1 6 ] for a total of [ 20 ].
<Korivan> (17)
* Lan-werk rolls for May: [ 5d6 ] getting [ 1 6 1 1 1 ] for a total of [ 10 ].
<May> (20)
<May> (I assume)
* May will close her eyes and chant a few prayers and wait for the flames to take shape.
<YOAW_Narrator> (Yeah, + rituals_
<YOAW_Narrator> )
<YOAW_Narrator> You hear faint whispers at the edge of hearing, which Korivan will initially take for the ancestors until he realizes he can't understand them at all. The flames take shape, a steep hill with a cave opening, a wooden palisade blocking it. Dozens of demons scrabble at it as Ankai inside stab with spears and fire arrows over the wall, pushing them back.
<May> (Does it seem like they'll be able to last a few days? Do the demons have any way of piercing the wall?)
<Korivan> (and is there anything we can do from here to help reinforce it?)
<Korivan> (Like, can I case something through a scrying, if May 'holds'? Something likestoneshape, or summon an elemental to reinforce it or similar)
<YOAW_Narrator> The demons are certainly doing damage, but you sense there are spirits helping to hold the wall as well.
<YOAW_Narrator> You think they can last, but the Ankai do seem ragged.
<YOAW_Narrator> You could theoretically cast through the scrying, though it's difficult, and it would depend on what you're trying to do.
<Korivan> (Cna I reinvigorate the spirits at all?)
<Korivan> (Feed them? >.>)
<May> (I'll try to help with that if I can)
<YOAW_Narrator> (You can try to do that, sure)
<YOAW_Narrator> (May, you'll need to stabilize the scrying)
<YOAW_Narrator> (So you shouldn't split your focus)
<May> (k)
<Korivan> May.... hold the vision. I am going to strengthen their spirits _
* May nods and continues chanting.
* Korivan gets out the knife and will do an offering for them in gaburim, cutting his hand squeezing it t get the blood flowing, letting it drip into the circle (which I assume is where we are seeing the vision?)
* Korivan will call on the ancestors to help guide this offering where it is intended to go, also

<YOAW_Narrator> You feel your strength flow out, through your blood and into the circle. You feel rush of heat, like standing to close to a ritual bonfire, and the whispers in the room rise in volume, still unintelligible. In the vision in the flames, you see the Ankai fight with renewed vigor, and shapes flit among them and the demons, flickering shadows turning aside demonic blows leaving wounds and demonic ichor in their wake.
<Korivan> (huzzah)
<May> (Woo!)
