Missives from Sky (Part 1)

Well we made it to Stoon safely, so that was a success. The pairing is interesting, though I think so far we make a good team. The human, Gunther, seems to be a better sneak then I am as well as Malec. Not surprised with the goblin. I’m not sure how we all got up there, the adapt was loud. I’m sure she’s part Dwarf. I’m sure that the Prelacy won’t be able to hear her when the time comes. The Brinchie, well we will have to keep him entertained and killing things. He likes action not talking and well there are times that I can’t find him and I can’t more than likely they won’t be able to. Time will tell. We check in with Sergeant Artivan Galadrius. He’s been promoted! And now I believe the fun should begin.

Missives from Sky (Part 2)

Objective: Scout, Rescue, Kill and Gather Intelligence. Attempting to take out the bridge is apparently over my pay grade and I shouldn’t even try if I find a way to - So. Leave. The. Bridge. Alone.

Gunther was handed a pouch of two single doses of Healing (one marked not so bad and one marked for really bad).

We decide to go in as stealthily as possible. I keep to the rooftops for cover, scouting for the others and don’t find any one till we come across a small nest of homes and a storage building. I see two Prelacy Scouts hiding in the bushes off hiding, not sure why. The leader is standing watching three others threaten three natives. One is hiding in a building facing the storage building and one other is sneaking to kill the natives.

After a quick conference, Gunther and I are headed up to the roof, the Brinchie was going to head off the assassin, Malec is going to take out the hidden archer and the Adept is going to attack the closest one that she can get to. I am surprised, the Adept was silent. I see, she used a spell to make her so (Once we have time, we should really teach the Adept sneaking!)

This leader is very aware and almost catches us. As he asks “who’s there?” I put an arrow through his throat, not actually killing him. Gunther takes out one of the Prelacy next to the natives, while Malec sneaks into the building and then does something that causes the hidden archer to come crashing out. The Brinchie starts to engage the assassin, not sure why he took so long. Gunther takes out their leader with an difficult shot. I found out that I’m not as good as Gunther and then take out one of the hidden Scouts. The other starts to run away as Malec chases him and is taunting him. I’m surprised that it worked, I then rescue Malec. The natives take out the second Prelacy that was surrounding them while the third starts to run away. The Adept fences with a Prelacy for a while and manages to kill him just about the time that the other runs up to her. Once the second one, that was hiding in the bushes falls, the Brinchie has finally finish off his and loudly (in his way) asks for a surrender.

The Adept and Gunther attempt to binder her wounds as I tress up our prisoner. Malec searches for documents that might be useful. The Brinchie checks on the natives and directs the more injured ones to the healer. As I start to interrogate the prisoner two individuals run up to us. We really need to tell the Priests not to walk in on wounded with out calling a “Hello” first. After realizing that they were just wanting to help, I lower my guard to gather more information from the lower level Prelacy. Malec finds a map of the sewers. The Brinchie quickly instructs the natives how to more effectively defend their church. The Priest, Sarah, quickly heals the group and Arcounus, a sorcerer, helps Malec understand the map.

We leave the prisoner with the church and head off to the sewers. Arcounus and the Brinchie start using weird hand gestures to communicate while we approach the sewers. They lead off as they can communicate and they are sneaky. Very quickly they find the guards near the entrance, and take them out without a sound. Malec and the Brinchie go check out a hall that branches off. While the rest of us wait to see if they find anything/one. The Adept gets a funny look on her face and heads down the hall. Shortly after they head off we hear more coming down the sewers. Arcounus motions for us to hide. Most of us successfully do, after the relief shows up they see Arcounus and start to say something, unfortunately for the first guy—- he met one of my arrows. The second took one of Gunther’s. Arcounus yells something in their language and gets a response. He indicates that we are ok at this time.

Most of the party; Gunther, the Brinchie, and I with Malec on my shoulders (Gunther and the Brinchie are in the Prelacy’s uniform and Malec has thrown the cloak about him and my wings) head toward the sound of the response. As we are leaving the Adept comes out and tells Arcounus, Sarah that a chest with Archmancy was in one of the rooms.

Gunther moves up and to the left side of the lake and nods to the other three Prelacy guards. The Brinchie nods to them as well, but backs up to the right. Arcounus starts yelling at them, as they start to see my shadow. The guards, shaking their heads, start to line up. The third notices something about the Brinchie and starts to draw on him. The Brinchie takes him down and then swings again and takes out the one in front of him. As the last one attempts to open his mouth to sound an alarm, Gunther takes him out. Malec jumps off of my shoulders as I dive for the last one and manage to catch him before he falls into the water.

As the Adapt tells everyone what the chest was locked with, I fly to the far visible door. As I land on the far side of the door, it opens to show four more Prelacy. Gunther takes one down (I have to say I like his multi-shot crossbow). Malec runs across the platform on to a boat and across the boat to jump across to the door and fully extend his blades to hit two more targets. They attempt to hit him, but I think they were very confused. One turned and ran sounding an alarm. The Arcounus shoots into the room and takes out two of the four in the room, as Gunther takes out another at the door. I leap over Malec’s head and land behind the last one at the door. I stab the last one at the door with an arrow, pull it out and shoot the last one leaving the room.

I found out after the fact that Sarah, the Brinchie, and the Adapt waited at the other door for the reinforcements to come through and held them there.

I as I was attempting to shoot the second one leaving the room, I stab the one at the door again- taking him out and then take the downing shot. The first one to run from the room has turned into a hall and we heard several voices talking about business and pests. Malec runs past me into another room to see a woman in a gold mask attempting to make her escape. He starts to taunt her, and calls for back up. Gunther and I make our way to him. Gunther and I both take a shot at her and she still remained standing. She attempts to damage us with Archfire. Malec still taunting, and Gunther takes aim and shoots her. As we finally look into the last room we see several more, as two die. Gunther takes aim and shoots at the same time Arcounus’ third bolt hits and takes out another leader/type figure. The last individual surrenders and says he has important information for us, as long as he remains breathing.

We take him and the chest back to command to report.

Objective: Catch up to Artivan’s group that has already left to help them out with everything. And Don’t. Take. Out. The. Bridge.

I catch up with Artivan and the rest of the party, at a warehouse. I see several new faces and it should be good to fight with the Liarra and Sarah again. It is decided that we are going in with the ogre, Artivan and Sarah at the front. I and Liarra at the back diagonal from the front door. And Luna along with Aldonis at the other back door. Liarra makes it so that every group has some sort of communication to the other. The ogre knocks open the door and Artivan sounded like he was pained by what he saw. After shouting out something about blaspheme I hear several loud blasts and then a female’s voice taunting. Aldonis runs into the room quickly followed by Luna. I fly to Luna and launch myself into the room, seeing two orcs that looked like they had been cut into pieces and then put back together with metal holding the pieces together.

The new trick doesn’t work here, and they are a lot harder to hit. Artivan takes out the woman who has a metal arm and her guard. The other Priest tells Artivan “Thank you, she was getting to be a bother, but you will have to be dealt with as well.” As I am focused on the two in front of me, I don’t know why several move away from those of us in the front entrance area. The ogre takes out one of these dead-but-moving orcs. The other swings and misses me, and I take him out. Turning to see what was still left to fight, I see a lot more Rangers in the room, moving towards the enemy Aldonis takes out two of the Prelacy’s forces and Luna takes out another one.

After the fight, Aldonis takes the heads of the dead. Artivan starts to yell at him, until it was pointed out that Aldonis was just making sure that the dead didn’t rise. Artivan has me go get a cart, so that command can see what we are now fighting.

Objectives: Clear out as much as we can, see about bringing back one, gather intelligence and to NOT. Blow. Up. The. Bridge.

It looks as if the earlier missions should have allowed for us to at least attempt it.

Gunther, Arcounus and Malec are on this mission with me, it will be an interesting time!

Before leaving for the mission, Gibben hands me a potion and tells me to drop it in the water and to make sure it breaks. I get it to the river, throw it down and it breaks above the river, the effect is nice and big, it could have taken me out with the wind. I go back to Gibben and let him know what happened, he looks surprised that it didn’t make it down to the river. He asks Aldonis to remind him to get more glass from the new makers. And then he promotes Aldonis, I’m not sure that he really meant to say Sargent, but after all Malec is calling Gibben General. Gibben hands me two vials of Healing (both for not so bad).

We start to head out, I fly ahead and at a gate we encounter Prelacy, Builders and another one of the animated dead (Dead-but-Walking {DBW}).

After deciding that Gunther, Aldonis, Arcounus and I were the destraction and Malec and his cousin Jack would climb up the wall to see about taking out this group.

Arcounus starts off exiting the house that Gunther is on and draws a lot of attention, for some reason he’s not going back in. Aldonis runs out and pulls him back while he’s acting like it’s a struggle. I attempt to blind the big guy and fail. Gunther takes out the archer Prelacy. They in turn put holes in our cover.

I drop the mirror on the group and take out the other archer. Arcounus hops out of a side window and takes out a Builder. Aldonis runs out and attempts to take out a few Builders. He gets one and then sees no cover.

I attempt to shoot the dead-but-walking but miss, it hits me. Then Aldonis gets hit by several other Builders. Gunther takes out a Builder, while Arcounus and a Builder attempt to take each other out. Jack and Malec have climbed the wall and are now looking around at the gate equipment and they make a plan.

I make a dive for Aldonis, grab him and stuff one of the healing potions down his throat while dragging him away from combat. Arcounus attempts to take out the Builder again, then when that didn’t work he jumps out the window. The orc shoots me in the back, Aldonis opens his eyes and sees Arcounus brush himself off and says: “Don’t go in there.” Aldonis gets up as I say: “Malec said there are more incoming.” charges into battle with the Builder.

As I turn and fly up to the roof, I see that Jack has tied a rope around DBW and Malec has been attempting to get this thing off the ground. Jack turns to the Builder that is riding something and says, “I am the sword of Stoon. I have never been defeated, surrender now.” As the Builder starts to laugh and is focused on Jack, Arcounus slams him with one of his bolts and takes him out. Aldonis and the Builder at the house are still exchanging blows.

I fly down the hole in the roof and slam into the Builder pushing Aldonis out of the way and the Builder into the grass outside. Aldonis jumps on top to take him out, while saying: “Stay off my grass.” That seemed to take out the Builder, finally. Arcounus takes out the new Builder. Jack goes over and helps Malec.

Aldonis hurries over and helps the goblins and get the DBW upside down and off the ground.

Aldonis sends me to report, get a wagon and a healer. After reporting what I needed to Gibben, he brings a small group with him to see with his own eyes what we caught for him.

He had the DBW crushed and took the Builder and what he was riding back to camp and handed Aldonis (to his, “where are the healers”) the reins to a pony.

The group heads back to camp, to fill out reports, get healed, repair items and get food.

Gibben tells us that we have lost Stoon. And tells us there are two missions.

Objectives:
Gibben gathers several of us up and give us the option to either rescue one of our own or to rescue an important Goblinesh Family. Gunther, I, Sarah, another scout and Adlec are headed off to escort the family out of town.

Gibben has no more exploding potions for us, and I still can’t blow up the bridge. This is a shame.

Gunther, Luna, Aldonis, Sarah and I go after the family. We are given a map to the rendezvous spot. We decide to use the rooftops were we could.

After several hours and close calls, we get to the warehouse. There are six Prelacy at the front doors and none at the back. Luna, Gunther and I get on the roof and start to take them out. Aldonis and Sarah attempt to get in the back door.

Gunther steps up to the ledge and shoots one of the axe wielders in the head and drops him. The others at the front door start to yell at him to get up. I shoot the leader in the eye and as he falls down, the one next to him starts to run away. Luna shoots one of the lounging forces, as they realize that there are archers on the roof.

After several tries, Sarah and Aldonis manage to get into the warehouse and tell the family that we have come to escort them out.

One Prelacy attempts to shoot the deserter as he runs away and misses. Luna takes out the other axe wielder as he has stepped more out into the open. I fly over the head of the Prelacy that just shot his companion and drop him. Gunther shoots and drops the last one.

We re-gather and decide that we are going to get the family out, by rooftops.

We finally get out of Stoon and are headed towards the rendezvous spot, as we approach the river we are attacked by more DBW (dead-but-walking) and I see a very familiar looking woman that shouldn’t be here. I give the alarm to the others and attempt to shoot to bring her down as I say “Did we kill you this morning? Your mother was an Elf” At least that is what I think I said. She didn’t look happy.

I have to say I was so focused on her, I didn’t see what the others were doing.

She shoots three different black things at me, that knock me out of the sky. I know that Sarah came over and healed me, then I got hit by a DBW. I taunted her with my borrowed taunts and repeatedly hit her with no results. She kept casting something, then Sarah started yelling about bring her down and something about the DBW getting back up. Then she really got upset and headed towards the river. As I turned I noticed that several of the family were on the ground. She grabbed one of the family and started to shock him with the Arch-magic. Sarah jumped to attack her to get her loose from the family, as well as Aldonis and myself. We knock him loose and he falls in the river. I fly by and make sure she’s not getting up in a second and rescue the family member. I notice he’s not breathing and use first aid to get him breathing again, then take him to Sarah.

Aldonis, Gunther and I start the process to make sure that these dead stay dead, after Sarah is done healing the family members she helps out while Luna keeps an eye out.

After everything was separated, we escort the remaining family members to the rendezvous spot.

Missive from Sky (Part 6)
Too Ready for Us

Objective: Notify Commanders

I pull Artivan and Gibben aside to let them know that there was another Prelacy Necromancer waiting for us. They set up an ambush in order to take the family. The force that was at the warehouse wasn’t even a real attempt to take this family, it was a farce.

The other fact is the crystals that are used in the Archnancy individuals can be loosened, not that I was trying to hit it. Artivan informs me that he has a trustworthy report of a crystal being hit and destroying a large town and killing lots of enemies along with friend. He tasks me to inform my group that we need to make sure not to target the crystals.

Artivan and Gibben start talking about a different mission and I look like I’m not listening, as I think it’s not about why we are all gathered. And I don’t want to be on a diplomatic mission, it’s not a strong ability that I have. I either make them dead or very pissed off at me.

I let Gunther, Arcanis, Malec, Tor and Sarah know that we need to make sure NOT to target the crystals. Sarah mentions that she has seen a crystal shatter with no effect. I inform her that this was coming from Artivan and that he has a trusted report of a crystal taking out a large town along with enemies and friendlies. Arcanis and Gunther just nod at the news and Arcanis looks thoughtful. Luckily, no one seems to need me to translate Gunther. I’m glad I’ve had the past three weeks to learn that non-verbal language. Tor states that Tor not attempt for crystals, but may hit on accident. I let Tor know that’s fine. We all head over to Gibben and Artivan as they start to give the new mission brief.

Missive from Sky (Part 7)
No, Really It's Ours!

Objective: Take back Sog and take out as many forces as possible.

Artivan and Gibben call several of us together, and tell us that Stoon has fallen and at the moment we won’t be able to get it back. However, we have intelligence that shows that Sagg had the Prelacy’s forces pulled to the front lines. So they should have a small presence in the town and we will be doing a multi-frontal attack. Sarah was given a field promotion to be our group’s leader and we are headed to the North gate and the other group to take the South. Hopefully we squish them in the middle and take out as many forces as possible.

As soon as we get within sight of the wall I do an aerial scout of what is at the gate. These gates are not like the ones in Stoon, so we won’t be able to disable any of the forces by dangling them upside down. I head back and let the others know that we have for most of the gates: three Prelacy archers guarding on each of the turrets that are on each side of the gate, just over the gate there are two Builders, behind the gate there is a builder riding the controlling unit and we are back to the normal war golems, two of those. There seems to be just a few random of the enemy doing wall patrols, however the further that we go in the more enemies that we will be seeing.

After some debate, we decide that Gunther and Malec are going to approaching the enemy on the wall and Tor, Sarah and Arcanis will be on the ground after going over the gate. I am supposed to be the distraction.

I dive down in order to see about getting some of the archers knocked down so that Gunther and Malec don’t have to fight so many right as they get on. I manage to knock one down, but the other grabs a hold of my bow then attempts to throw me off the turret. I had hoped to pull him off as we reached the edge, but he let go causing me to flip and land on the ground. At least every one on the wall is now focused on me as I yell out in their foul language that their mothers were elves—it looks like I said something that angered them, maybe I should actually learn the language to see if that taunt means what I think it means. Na, I think even if it’s not that it works effectively as they all turn and shoot at me.

I hear Tor hit on the golem and it sounded like that hit hurt. Arcanis and the Builder on the controlling unit fire at each other, (it looks like Arcanis didn’t get damaged) and he ran back into cover. Sarah runs up to Tor and casts something—I hope it was deflection as I hear Tor getting hit by both of the golems. I fly back up and start to use the insults that I’ve just learned while Gunther and Malec climb up on the turret. Man I’ve got to see if I can be as cool as Malec was—he gets all the way up the turret and stabs an archer through the throat and makes that archer just fall down. Gunther shoots across the turret and wounds the third one on this turret. Both of the archers back up.

Malec runs up to them and takes them both out, it looks so cool that the goblin runs out to them and appears to want to hold their hand and down they go. I manage to royally tick off the remaining guards to the point that they can’t seem to do anything else other than to scowl at me, not that it lasted long. Sarah attempts to hit a golem. Then things get fuzzy on me as I look down and see three arrows through my wings. I somehow get down to Sarah as the battle rages, maybe I shouldn’t take on so many people. Malec attempts to damage a Builder while Tor attempts to hit a golem. I get back in the air and take out the control Builder, which stuns the rest of the golems. Arcanis shoots the remaining three, and then we slowly take them down.

We make our way into the center of town and then get on the roofs as we start to hear fighting from the other side. We get almost to the river when, just before we are spotted an alarm comes from across the river that there are Rangers in the town.
I take another shot to the wings. I shoot the archer dead and the Builder walks over and takes a shot, man I really don’t like the Archfire. Gunther jumps the gab while shooting over his shoulder making the Builder run for cover.

We make it across the river, I am so glad that Malec and I have an arrangement regarding my feathers. Arcanis runs a head and shoots at something, and I see a lot of forces attempting to back out of combat and look at Malec who looks at me and points to a limping leader. We nod at each other as more reinforcements start to walk across the bridge, one points at me and the others start pointing their bows at me. I use my favorite taunt and he indicates that I should say it to his face. I bow and drop off Malec behind a leader then turn to shoot the one back on the bridge. It sounded like Malec did hit, I hope that he’s ok, I have five targets and I dropped him in four. A large DBW slams out of a warehouse, followed by a Prelacy Necromancer. I call out to all of the Rangers “There’s a Necromancer, take her down.”

A rather large fellow that I had never seen before, the wonderfully nice big Orc, charges the DBW and knocks him right down. Then he continues to the Necromancer and says “The pretty winged one says I have to smash you now.” And she falls down, although she does look like she’s breathing still. The one directly underneath me tells the downed Necromancer that this failure is all on her and then he and the one I just shot disappear.

I really would have liked to finish our discussion about his parenting. Then a silver light appears and the image of the Silver Unicorn appears, as I make her out I almost fall from the sky as I see that she is flying with her own wings. At this the rest of the enemies surrender.

We have taken back Sog!

Seige of Stoon Mission Log "Command and Control" Part 1
To The Frontlines, or A Romantic Beginning

The Alakar Rangers were slow to ask for volunteers to answer the call to aid Stoon, to the point where I almost left aid the besieged city of my own accord. But eventually they accepted the call for volunteers and I was among the first to pack up and head out.

Arriving in the command camp for the Rangers, I was immediately pulled into a briefing with Lieutenant Gibbon Daxx, and Ranger Artivan. The mission was to use the distraction of Artivan’s main thrust against the enemy forces to find and disable the command and control for the Builder War Golems that were being utilized by the Prelacy. Two teams were sent; my team consisted of Myself, Liara Byrne, Sarah of Tourchwood, Falosia Naillo, Crescent Moon, Luna Sky, and Ta’or Cha’la.

We snuck our way toward the location indicated as a possible command and control center. On the way I acted as mid scout while Crescent and Luna kept us appraised on the enemy forces. They found a group of Golems, Prelacy Soldiers, and Builders at work destroying a Temple of Archanon and we took it upon ourselves to stop their rampage. Crescent and Luna snuck up as I creeped stealthily to a position where I could snipe at the Soldiers. I heard a twang and saw one of the soldiers fall. The Battle had started and I fired my bow at another soldier catching him as he turned to see his friend fall. The golems started to move toward us as the rest of the squad set up an ambush. Sarah called out to the enemy, declaring herself, and calling the enemy to attack. Finally taking a full notice of Liara, I was besotted. A woman, while human, in elvish armor, and bearing an elvish rapier she immediately became the focus of my attentions. Her eyes narrowed and suddenly one of the Golems that was marching toward us was a pile of scrap. Ta’or, the korindian, thought to offer her a drink. I couldn’t let the islander get the better of me, so i doubled his offer, drinks and dinner and proceeded to remove another of the prelacy soldiers. With the sniping from above, the magics of Liara, and my own efforts from the ground the enemy soldiers had little in the way of resistance to us. As the fight drew close, and in an effort to impress Liara, I aimed between the armor of one of the Golems, taking a breath and letting it go as I loosed the bow. My aim stayed true, and the golem went down. I shook out my hair and winked to Liara. The fight finally ended when the water in the fountain flowed out and encased one of the Builders inside a bubble of Ice as the last of the Prelacy soldiers was shot through.

The Battle was won, but the mission yet remianed

Journal of Felosia Naïlo
Morning, First Mission, Defense of Stoon

3123 Thunder Hawk 12,
Morning First Mission

First day in the Rangers and I’ve got to say it was interesting. I’m not sure how well this journaling thing is going to go but it’s been recommended to me by my recruiter Artivan Galadrius. He suggested that this might help me in my training, possibly help me remember the things I do that work and those that don’t. Well hopefully he’s right. There have been stirrings across the land, in the forests and the darker places far away from the eyes of civilization. Rumors of a dark power had reached my ears, rumors which under normal circumstances would send me running into the shadowed areas of the forest in search of the evil, the nasty, and the dead. But I’d also heard rumors on the wings of the air and in the whisper of fur in the grass that more was hiding in the shadows than usual and that the unusual darkness was forcing the usual further afield than normal. I was searching the wilds for the rumors and hints I could find, hoping to stumble across one of these shadows when Artivan found me. He told me of the battle for Stoon and I knew my services were needed for the Goblinesh defense so I joined him in his journey to Stoon.

As I gathered in front of Commander Gibbon Draxx alongside the other members of the unit I was assigned to, the outlook of the Rangers around me was bleak. Commander Draxx outlined the situation of the Goblinesh inside the city limits, detailing how the Prelacy was enslaving the Goblinesh and rumors of their doing other horrific things to them. Commander Draxx then detailed groups to support them by withdrawing the civilians as they held the Prelacy at bay. Afterwards he enlightened us to some information and rumors that have been circulating about a control golem which apparently gives the golems special abilities and makes them more dangerous. Command had decided to send out groups to locations near where their information suggested one of these control golems might be. Our first mission was to figure out where a control golem might be and capture any Builders we could to see what information we might be able to get from them. We were then tasked with taking out the control golem if possible and getting back to the command center with what information we had gathered. From what I heard around camp and from my compatriots the Builders apparently have some new fancy magic and armor. Though speaking of fancy armor and weapons, there seems to be a human wearing finely crafted elven armor with an ancient elven sword. The armor has a weird inscription on it… but I’m getting ahead of myself.

We headed towards the middle of Stoon where our current target was supposed to be. As we approached our target the Aevakar ranger (Luna Sky) who was assigned to our unit flew ahead and alighted on the roof of a building. As we approached we watched her take a shot from the roof and duck back behind the eave of the building. Our unit moved forward, most moving in stealth, but our main healer (Sarah of Torchwood) ran forward and yelled at the courtyard to come and get her if they could. As she did that we saw a beam of glowing light shoot into the sky and bright wings of light wrapped around her then dissipated. As the Builders, Prelacy soldiers, and golems turned and started moving to intercept the one target they could see I noticed shots coming from Luna and taking out targets while our Brinchie member (Crescent Moon) tried to engage. The human Adept (Liara) of our group stepped out from behind the outhouse she and the Korindian Ta’or had been hiding behind and with a glare the golem nearest her blew apart. Ta’or called out asking Liara if she’d grab a beer with him after the battle, and I watched my old friend Galashorn snort next to me then take a calculated shot around the corner of our building, taking out a soldier in one shot and calling out to Liara with a counter offer. As amusing as it was to watch I left the show to run around the back of the building with a grin and watched as a Builder and a soldier hid behind the fountain. I wasn’t going to let such a perfect opportunity go to waste so I convinced the fountain water to surge up around its new buddies, encasing them both. I watched Liara blast another golem apart with her mind and heard a massive crash from a building behind her. More arrows arched after the soldiers and after the dust and ice settled we were left with a couple of Builder captives, some scrap metal, and dead soldiers.

As our unit started trying to interrogate the Builders that none of us knew the language of, Liara mentioned that she could strip the information we needed from their minds. She reached for one of our captives and touched his head, creating a glowing aura that stretched between where she touched him and her eyes. After a second Liara turned to all of us and told us that she had the location, a general map, and layout of the guards. She also had gotten the impression that the Builder was very concerned about what would happen if the control golem went down. Our unit decided that the best move was to drop our captives off at a command center along with the information Liara had gathered from the Builders mind on our way to the control golem’s location. On the way back Liara started a discussion with me about spells and concentration tools to keep from being interrupted in combat. We decided that we would have to train together, practicing both our spells and avoiding/breaking each others spells. Outside all of that I noticed there was an interesting competition ongoing between Ta’or and Galashorn over Liara. And that she was completely oblivious. I shook my head, made a joke with Liara about clingy fountains and sat back to watch and enjoy as the situation developed.
