Nandine's Healing Centre: The Carnage continues...

Postby Hatsuo1980 » Tue Feb 01, 2011 1:08 pm

Upon reaching the healing centre, the Sentinel can see the doors smashed in by some large, blunt object.

Inside, bodies litter the floor and blood splatter decorate the walls. Screams echo the room. Focussing, the life elf can hear it coming from behind a door. Many voices crying out in terror as a large demon with skin of rock bashes at the door with a wickedly evil mace. Clearly, the door must be barricaded from the other side in some fashion.

"Please help us someone" ...

As she scans the room, another demon, this time one who appears made of wind, holds a young boy aloft. The boys arms outstretched as they are held by the demons. Tears run down the childs face and he bellows in agony as the demon begins to pull. The scream gets louder as the shoulders dislocate...

A fiery demon throws over a bed with a fragile old woman on it. The woman attempts to scramble to her feet but is kicked with incredible force, sending her crashing into a wall. She falls in a heap to the floor. The demon raise it's axe high above her body...

Rilla knows she has to stop the demon before it kills another innocent and acts fast "By Life's power, hold fast!" (OC: Holy Touch) she cries and leaps forward slapping her hand down on the demon's back before the axe can fall.

Precious time bought, she inwardly curses Mercy as she hastily bends to tend the the old woman, praying devoutly that it is not too late
(OC: DNW) and prepares to cast a spell of healing "Dragon of Life I call the power of life to these wounds" as she gently touches her hand to the wound before scrambling to her feet to confront the wind demon

(OC: Greater Heal if the woman isn't dead, if she is then ignore spell and get up/move straight away)

The sounds of the screams attracted one of the trainee Healers who had been returning for her shift.
Eryssa appeared in the doorway, dumbstruck by the sight of the carnage that greeted her.
She scowled. Those poor people, she said under her breath.
I call upon the holy power that my birthright grants me!
A bolt of light flashes across the room, hitting the Wind Demon in the back, hopefully getting its attention away from the child. (OC: Light Bolt)

The sword at Rilla's side glows with light, and a familiar voice fills her head.

"I am here, if you need me, but I fear more of my use will draw my brother to us. Call me if the need is direst."

Life and Light energy flows from Doki, streaking around all in the area. Those who are demonic the light smites, avoiding those who are alive.

The Fiery demon is struck still at Rilla's touch. The elf, checking the wounds, see's the helpless women is indeed still alive.

With the spell incanted, the women comes around and, taking Rilla's hand, struggles to her feet.

A pulse of light shots forth from Eryssa's hand, striking the Wind demon in the back. The demon, holding the child by just its left hand now, turns and glares at her before skulking towards her then, Silver and Light fills the room and all the demons wince in pain as the holy power of Nature's Wrath strikes out at each of them.

The Earth Demon near the door turns and moves toward Rilla. Meanwhile, the one who was frozen by the powers of life, continues it's strike downward, freed by the storm of life magic, striking Rilla in the back (ooc: quad)

Eryssa bites back an oath and rushes forward, shouting the same incant the master healer had used. "By Lifes power, hold fast!" She slaps her hand against the fiery demons arm, releasing the power, (Oc - Holy Touch) forgetting the other demons in her rush to help the Life Elf.

Eryssa's touch holds the demon fast, stopping any subsequent blows into Rilla''s back...

James was feeling well, off that demon island, back on solid and safe ground. Nandine they had called it, place of the (apparently-not-so-extinct) druids. He had asked for a brochure quite tactlessly - apparently druids weren't big on paper - he should have seen that coming...

He followed the instructions to the letter, wondering if they had used any algorithms to plan the route in the most efficient way. Still the area was quaint, there were mud huts. Not as impressive as the brick of Ingolé granted, but nice in a 'rural' sort of way. He shuddered and vowed he would never use that word again. Cities were the way forward, order and progress, the watchwords of a functioning society.

He grabbed his bandaged arm and winced in pain, he knew that if he ever got used to the constant agony the curse would change to a new type of pain. Right now it was in it's 'hot' phase. He was certain it would change to cold if the temperature around him rose.

He wheeled round the corner and saw his destination;
A real healing centre! Like the one that had been in Pathway!! How exciting!
He thought to himself; Maybe they have expenses? What about the need of an accountant. The Deeps, he'd even take a secretary job with the way his week had gone.

His head popped round the corner to see the carnage inside, with some frozen and some angry demons smashing... well... everything.

He took a deep breath, and then;
WOAH! WOAH! Why is this always happening? Did I upset someone without realising it and they've decided to punish me? I only wanted a massage! But no, demons of course. Are you all craving relaxation, is that it? Is that the reason you keep appearing whenever I want a break??

he paused realising he had probably said that all pretty loud, and in a provocative and attention drawing manner...
Um... guards? Do druids have guards? A legal system? Some level of authority or assurance, or security or comfort??

He looked around, trying not to cry from self pity.
No? Okay then... erm you... big fellow... I challenge you to a duel...?

He said it with a depressed resignation.

This adventuring lark was rubbish.

The Wind turn turned to the tiny human, walked towards him and took a mighty downward swing...

James' mind kicked into gear, momentarily forgetting the pain in his arm. He for a split second thought about trying to parry the blow with his sword. remembered he wasn't very strong himself, and that it was sheathed. The probablities of death where pretty high in that case.

Instead he leapt backwards trying to judge the distance so he could have enough time to draw his sword. (just moving, or if it would still connect will take it to dexterity hits). He drew the sword, took his stance, and another deep breath.

This would be fine, all he had to do was not get eaten or bleed to death before someone who actually knew what they were doing sorted out the problem. Preferably someone with a degree in demonslaying. Where the final exam involved hunting down Azazel and cutting out his eyes, 'wow' he though to himself, 'brutal'.

Reality caught up with him, healing centre. Demons. Priorities. Profit Margins... wait. Demon!!

*after ensuring the safety of the refugees at camp Hardes stormed through the streets with two of his fellow guards, running through the streets of the city, hearing the commotion from the healing centre they changed course and charged straight through the door, grabbing James by the shoulder and flinging him aside out of the way  as 2 of them barged in. 
Not Pausing  for a second as He took in the situation, the plight of his people now destroying others lived, the fires of anger filling his veins as he drew his sword gifted by the hero of wind*
"Drive the foul taint back into the void! Protect the injured!"

*holding his shield tightly Des charged into the fray, using it as a battering ram as he forced his way to the ladies on the floor, standing resolute between them and the demon swinging his blade furiously at the demons mace with all his might (shattering blow) as he let out a bellowing battle cry.

His fellow guards following their leaders example the first taking a step back to line up a shot drawing his bow tork as he paused for an opening, letting the arrow fly straight into the wind demons left shoulder in attempt to free the boy as the second rushed into the building, the large fighter headed straight at the fire demon, his shield ready for the demon as he plunged his sword at it's heart.*

(lols, this is gonna be difficult to keep up with now)

The bigger fighter plunged at the heart of the frozen fire elf, barely missing as it clipped off one of the ribs. The demon roared in pain and, with its demonic strength, grabbed the fighters weapon and through him into a wall stunning him.

The demon charged towards the similar figures of Hardes' guards.

Hardes, now engaged with one of the demons, parried and blocked with all his might as the demon sprouted foul talons and flailed mercilessly at him....

James stood up, dusting himself off. The last thing he wanted was to look like a local.

peering tentatively round the corner of the door he saw the battle continue. That would do, trained warriors. Okay it might be trained by experience which everyone knew actually meant little compared to someone of learning. He strongly doubted their ability to count their own wages but he'd rather it was them than him. Still feeling useless he chipped in;

Um, don't forget the earthy one...

His arm exploded with pain as he reversed his sword and gripped it. Breathing slowly and repeating "3574" over and over again.
Of course, it was Despairs Law; constant pain when safe, and the only time he could forget it was then he was in constant danger. Sort of like spending all night reading balance sheets to find that anomaly and then realising your original work was correct...actually thinking about it... that was far worse.

He stepped into the healing centre....
