Shrooms! (Private) (Closed)

Aiva'ihl rolled her eyes. That was going to work nicely.

- Just stop saying "purge" and let's move on. - The warden verified the equipment: armour, knife, mace. All good. - As for you question, it could indeed be troublesome to find ourselves in the middle of a fight inside the city with non-combatants, it all depends on if and who will volunteer to stay here and watch over them.

- Many things may have driven them away without being of trouble to us. Detir spoke of lack of food...

Aiva looked on the direction of the village looking for signs of life, mana or anything that could explain what happened.

"Noble Templar, I do believe that he is simply attempting to make an apology for a possibly rude reaction. Are you refusing his apology?" Elk asked rather calmly as he stepped off the wagon, readying his weapons and gear, not actually looking at the Templar, instead scanning over the village ahead of them, careful eye examining for any dangers.

"Warden, do you have any recommendations on an approach? If my memory serves right, Templars and Wardens use partner tactics. I can take the lead, with Elh'vir taking rear and the pair of you taking middle, perhaps."
He observed, tactical knowledge sliding out.

"...Bossprince, I think you meant 'flank' when you said rear. No way I'm taking the rear, you should know that really well."

This been said, Elh'vir jumped down from the cart and started to walk bit to the left compared to the road, pulling his blade from around his waist and starting to spin it lazily around himself.

"Oh yeah, Prince. Let's remember the basics: Two simultaneous shots in the air means help, in case you people need it."
with large grin over his shoulder, Elh'vir took few running steps away, nearly expecting a mana bolt or two to launch in his direction.

The walk down to the village was surprisingly uneventful. And unnerving. There was no sound. No whisper of wind or sound of life.

The area seemed utterly dead.

As the party approached, they could see lights flickering through the windows. Nothing strong enough to be seen from half a kilometer away, but just bright enough to be visible at the outskirts of the village. Superstitious drow would call it ghosts. Realistic drow would draw weapons.

The Elk, Aiva, and Garrus advanced down the center, the Village Guard Post looming from the mist, dark and probably deserted, while Elh'vir and Alderic advanced from opposite flanks. Umrae'sin found cover and waited to be called.

Elh'vir's approach took him around to the Mayor's Mansion/Office, with its associated buildings. There is no activity, and the flickering lights have grown stronger. They are suspiciously like fires.

Alderic's approach leads him into a set of allies between houses. Many seem to be deserted, but others have shadows moving through the flickering light.

Ghosts or raiders? This is the most pressing question as the party moves to secure a building as a fall-back point.

Garrus stayed quite as the Val questioned him, but he chose to listen to Avia and let it go.

As they approached the 'Ghost' town, Garrus noticed the young crusader found some cover and waited for them to clear the area. He never doubted her abilities in melee but he felt better that the younger members stayed back and out of danger.

"It looks like this place still has a few scavengers left." Garrus said, taking note of the lights. He slowly drew his sword, not willing to take any chances. He didn't see any Sarghress wolves or any signs that a Clan was around.
He was also beginning to think that the odds were that the town didn't have the mushrooms Detir was told about. Who ever gave him the information might have told somebody else ahead of time or the human left with them, or even ate them who knows.

He looked over to Avia and Elk "Should we call out and see if anybody home, I dont want another fight if we can help it, perhaps we could talk to them."

So, he was going back to the hellzone, eh...
Elh'vir shook his head while walking, pushing yet again the dark memories behind him.
This wasn't the underworld, not some demon-infested place, and the only drow here were them.

Going around, blade still whirling in his hand slowly, Elh'vir started to collect small amount of mana to his hand, forming it into charged air. He cursed bit in his mind while doing this. It was rather hard here, as mana was more scarce.
When he had collected all he needed and reached a reasonable distance to the village, he blasted a small mana-rich wind toward it, lifting bit dust and some small leaf-like pieces from the ground. At the same time, he rushed off from the path of the wind, taking possible cover he could find and waiting for few moments.
If there were any demons in the village, they would surely come out for this lure.

Immediately, there was absolutely no response. Noises that vaguely resembled voices could be heard, but the weird acoustics of the area muffled them and it was difficult to tell if they were actually voices or if it just something falling over.

...Great. No way to tell what's in there. Just perfect.

Elh'vir spun his blade in a ready-motion and stopping it, pulling out a throwing knife to his right hand and walking slowly toward the buildings.
When he got within few meters of the buildings, he let out a low whistle, a one that sounded bit like a wind blowing trough the town but at the same time sounded bit weird. He needed to see HOW off the sound got in this city.

((Waiting for others for now...))

"Don't wander!" Elk barked as Elh'vir began to move from the group, his sword still at the ready. Something here wasn't right. It was... almost off, in a way. Elk's eyes scanned for any noticeable buildings, specifically Town Halls or towers of some sort, that possibly looked damaged or otherwise suspicious.

Something about this was running a chill up his spine.

Garrus couldn't help but feel like they were walking into something. Aiva was quite, maybe she was feeling it too...because it looks like their companions also feel something is wrong in the air.

He took a few steps ahead of Aiva and smoothly shifted in front of her, if things were going to go down Garrus would take the brunt of it. Garrus closed his eyes and steadied his mind bringing his mana vision up, if there were other Fae around, he might be able to see he them and give the group some much needed information.

Like the crossbow bolts about to land on their heads? Their appeared to be an entire volley heading their way with more following, sparkling in a strange manner as they descended. As they approached, a high-pitched whistling as the air passed over the flights of the crossbow bolts began to fill the air.

Elk's eyes flew up to the sky as the bolts came flying at them. Oh, that's not good. "Mana Shields! Go for cover!" He quickly yelled, throwing up his mana shield as the bolts descended, dinging off his shield, the occasional one getting through and deflecting off his armor. He'd try and gesture for the others to head for cover in the nearest building, throwing out flashing bangs to cover them and try to attract attention.

...Shi-

Elh'vir didn't really have time to concentrate, so he just dropped his knife to the ground and shot away uncontrolled (but little weak) wind blast, pulling most of the bolts off from him or making them land sideways to his chest. The rest, however, came howling down, bouncing against his chest armor and right hand gauntlet protecting his face. But few of them managed to hit, nibbing the side of his head, left arm and legs, and Elh'vir gave away silent curses and twitches of pain.

Luckily he was at the flank, and not gathering as much fire as the rest of the team. So he rolled up on the ground, brought his heavy cloak to cover him and ran to the nearest building, diving down and hugging the wall, thus giving him quite good cover against the bolts.

Up there, he started to slowly gather mana around, forming slowly a good wind gust. He grabbed some dirt from the ground, and got ready.
They needed some smokescreen fast. Prince couldn't keep them up with flashes forever.

Note: Django, you can post ahead of Reva and Zickman. Reva's pulling out temps and Zickman's disappeared and I dunno how to reach him. Anyone with information on contacting him should do so then tell me.
