Ritual Success? (Back at Nandine)

Postby spsblue » Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:48 am

Fionan Druce arrives back at his grove, his staff ready to defend it in case Demons have appeared even here.

On the way back from the boat he had passed several corpses of demons, one looked like it had been torn apart by a werewolf, others lay amid piles of dead humans but had finally been overcome. He sighed - at least this way they were spread out through out the world and could be outnumbered and defeated more easily than as a standing army gathered in one place. And also the return had been their choice - Velnashar's curse of Free Will and Danahil's gift of Freedom combining allowing them to cause chaos that would (he hoped) be short-lived.

It was a lesser evil - their deaths and even the deaths they caused his allies were the demon's own fault now or the God of Chaos and Destruction - not the taint that would have fallen upon them if they had used the ritual to utterly destroy the demons. He knew that with the fall of the Giver of Life and Des's friend the general the demons would not have been content with merely that island - and a ravaging army would have been more unstoppable and caused more deaths.

Still he wished he could have done more. But confining them by removing their freedom or altering their minds would have been more evil. He had hoped that sending them home would have made them content.. but it was not so. Still they chose to try to kill, to take land and territory that does not belong to them and to die for it. Unfortunately this is the way the world works. However by removing the overwhelming outnumbering and denying them the opportunity to use teamwork against us he feels that at least the evil is not festering and growing stronger like the undead infection under their litch 'Haran' and that the fight has been made relatively easier.

As Fionan ponders the events of the Isle a strange smell enters his nose, the smell of wood and leaf burning. It was a faint smell but noticeable all the same...

Gripping his staff in his hand so hard that his pale almost white silvery skin goes even paler he rushes against the wind towards the source of the burning smell.

Fionan feels the air getting hotter and hotter as he travels toward the smell. Smoke can be seen but a few hundred yards in the distance, along with the sound of heavy feet....

Fionan calms his mind and calls upon his essence. " Power of water, the element of life, come to me, surround me and protect me from the ravages of Fire. Asternia shield us from Venashar's burning - Celestial Dragon protect the innocents and life on Velmanath. "(SHIELD OF WATER RANK 8 )

Thus protected from the heat, Fionan continues to run forward.

The heavy stride sounds more like a charge, heading in Fionan's direction...

Fionan doesn't back down, flinging his shoulder bag off and down to his left, he thinks back to the certainty he had when the Celestial Dragon told him that those undead NEEDED to be killed with heroic blows. He reassures himself that the Rock-skin and Invigorate are in place; having cast those when he found the first body; and mentally attempts to judge the correct moment to start inncanting to hit what is charging with a Water bolt as soon as it enters magic range and he can identify it.

But 20 paces from where Fionan stands a pair of trees burst into flames. Smoke bellows high into the sky and the searing heat soon envelops the surrounding shrubbery. Something very evil was near, that was for sure. A bead of sweat trickled down Fionan's brow and his heart began to pound loudly, deafening him to the sounds of the world. His resolve didn't waver, however, this was his grove and he would protect it...

...Anxious moments passed and anguish began to build up inside the Druid as the roar of the demon flooded his ears...

...The charred remains of twig, branch and bark littered the elf as the demon powerfully burst through the trees, rampaging towards Fionan. The time to protect his grove was upon him..........

Fionan casts as fast as he can, (not being a specialist) " Water gather, cool this Demon with a bolt of WATER" BOLT. Then, expecting this to at best slow the demon, he alters his charge with a sidestep to the left, attempting to swing his staff into the demon's chest, hoping the demon will miss him and barrel past him. If it does, his intent is to get to a burning tree and douse it, then cast again at the demon as he expects it to turn to close with him once more.

The demon's charge is halted as it staggers back, clearly wounded by the concentration of water magic that just struck it. Taking a moment to gather itself, it begins it's charge once more...

Fionan uses the time until the demon closes again with casting.. "Water spirits in the sky, drench your brother tree.DOUSE", then proceeds to meet the demons charge as planned (in the previous post).

As chaos breaks out in the grounds of the Healing Centre, Rilla abruptly breaks off from her conversation with 'Des. She takes in the smells, sounds and the sight of smoke and flame and her normally silver-white skin pales. "'Des, get your people to safety and anyone who can fight to the Grove! I'm going to the Healing Centre!" With that she Runs towards the Healing Centre, her thoughts racing and hoping devoutly that the authorities are alert and will be starting evacuation procedures. In the meantime, the patients have to be protected

The tree that Fionan targets is consumed with water and the fire extinguished. As the water cascades off of the tree, some of the surrounding plants are also extinguished, but the fire still spreads forth from the other tree.

The demon, now close to Fionan, jumps at the Life Elf, it's talons held high above ready to strike down upon him...

Abandoning his initial idea - those tallons look sharp - Fionan casts as turns his dive to the side into a scramble to keep a minimum amount of distance. "Water surround, water protect, water flow, water repel, Water Barrier Wall", CASTLE OF WATER and continuing for as long as he can repeating this mantra.

(ooc: 12 scond cast time but ok, it's only forum fun :-) )

The demon begins to look perplexed as he tries to approach the life elf but is barred. In it's anger, the demon pulses with fiery energy and sends out a ream of fire...

(OOC: fire storm 1)
