Shrooms! (Private) (Closed)

"What!" Garrus shouted as the arrows pelted and broke through Elks mana shield, almost without thinking he extending his arms and added his mana to Elks shield. Thankfully the added mana strengthened the shields and no more arrows broke though.

Who ever they were must have been reloading because there was a moment of nothing. "This way!" he waved to Elk and ran into a nearby ally, "God damn it, what the fuck is up with this trip." He cursed as he pulled out his blade from it sheath, so much for doing this easy way. "Wheres Elh'ver?" Garrus asked as he peered around the corner on the other side the the ally and turned off his mana vision.

Unfortunately for everyone, a second volley of weirdly-sparkly bolts impacted the area. While they couldn't penetrate the buildings/stones/assorted cover that the party was taking cover behind, they, and their brothers from the first volley, did do a little something called bursting into white-hot flame like one of Elk's mana flares, only hotter.

This is, of course, a problem. Especially for Elh'vir, who hadn't bothered to rip the bolts out of his armor/flesh.

With the first bolt flashing in flames, Elh'vir just blinked to it for a second there, not really realizing his lower chest had caught on fire.

When the pain message hit the nerves, he fell down on his back, screaming in agony, trying to grab the bolt and clinging to the wall of the building. At the same time, the mana and wind he had gathered erupted violently, and suddenly a large dust-cloud shot out from him, carrying with it screams of pain, agony and cursing. The wind blew around the building and covers, hiding everyone partially behind the thin cloud of dust and sand blowing around.

Few moments later, he actually managed to pull out the bolt, and hurled it back around the corner to the would-be attackers.
Then, he wasn't really there anymore. At least his mind wasn't. The pain of flames had brought back everything, all dark memories, all of the suffering and blood. Elh'vir rose up, not really noticing the pain anymore. It was somewhere back of his head, but it was in the present.

He, however, was already in the past.
Letting out a wild scream, Elh'vir grabbed his blade, swinging it wildly in front of him and rushing around the corner. Any stray shots still in the air hit the wall of blades he created, and reflected around. Well, most of them. Few still got trough, but he didn't care. As white-hot flame erupted on his body, he screamed to the enemies, rushing forward.

"Take my leg, I take your head. Take my arm, I take your legion! Come around, you demons! I'll send you back to your nether realms!"

Elk was wavering a bit under the constant peppering, but the Templars aid helped, pushing back another wave of bolts. As he spotted Elh charging, he glared from beneath his helm, a bright flash of light popping in front of his face. "Get a hold of yourself, or by the Goddess, I will end you myself." He yelled in rage. They did not have the time to deal with this right now.

He moved back toward the alleyway- he'd leave Elh'vir to die if he didn't get a hold of himself and pull back.

Garrus turned his head as he heard Elh'vir shouting something at someone and Elk shouting at the grey to get a hold of himself. "Holy Goddess, fire!" He shouted, looking at the flames lighting up the streets and some of the buildings around them. Elh'vir must have freaked out seeing the fire and set himself into a rampage mode, Sharess please don't let him see me and make me a target, the last thing he wanted was to kill Elh'vir and dwindle their numbers.

"Who ever is shooting at us, don't seem to care about the town that much, the whole place can go up in flames." Peering around the corner again the coast seemed clear for the moment. Garrus was still trying to decided on whether or not they should seek them out or retreat and call it quits... not a bad idea. “What do you think Val? Should we seek them out or cut loose?”

"Crossbowmen, shift fire to the beserker! The rest of you motherless dogs, BRING ME THAT VAL'S HEAD!!!" shouted some deep, gravelly voice of badassitude and general not-good-for-your-immediate-physical-health-ness.

Cue battlecries as an onslaught of halmes, drow, and assorted other militant barbarians charged the alleyway.

Meanwhile, Detir decided that it would be unconscionable to not get involved. He whipped out his crossbow and hiked towards an elevated position.

With the flash of light and Prince's voice of command, Elh'vir actually stopped to his tracks. The past and current were fighting in his head, all while his blade was making even more cuts to the ground and building walls within reach. Finally, as the enemy's voice rang out, Elh'vir snapped out of it and rushed for cover. Luckily the dust cloud he had accidentally launched was just setling down, and allowed him to dodge for cover.

"I'm sorry I'msorryI'msorryI'msorryI'msorry!"

Yeah, he was coming back to senses, but the guilt washed over him and he banged his head nearly to his blade few times. He had just rushed in, once again going alone and possibly even dooming his team nearly there for that.

Three thoughts sluggishly made their way through Alderic’s mind as he finally regained back consciousness. The first and foremost was the fact that his head felt as though someone was ruthlessly pounding upon it with a large hammer. His tongue felt thick and fuzzy and even as he tried to move blackness swam at the edge of his vision.

what the hell…………?

The second thought was that he was alone……..but that wasn’t right for some reason. He couldn’t be alone. He was with people, wasn’t he……..yes, the expedition! Where were his companions? Alderic tried to move again, slower than before. His head throbbed violently but he thought that this much he could bear. He finally managed with intense effort to sit up and take in his surroundings. He was in a dark and empty room….how could that be?

Then the memories rushed back. Storming away from the group after that argument with the val punk, walking blindly through unknown territory and paying the price for his lapse when he was set upon by a mob of Drows and halmes, making them pay in a river of blood for attacking him, and then finally being overrun and struck unconscious. And now waking up in a dark room………….without his armor or arms.

Alderic leapt to his feet as quickly as if he had been burnt at the realization, and almost passed out again for his efforts. But he didn’t care. Oh god, the bastards had his sword! Anger such as he had only known once before overtook him then. He couldn’t allow them to get away with that. He couldn’t allow the bastards to remain with his sword! He needed it for his ultimate purpose.

Alderic began staggering around the room, still weak and still in enough agony to have down a lesser Drow, looking for an exit. But as far as he could tell there was none. The building he was imprisoned in was built of solid stone with a steel door that opened inward. Even at the height of his strength he doubt he would be able to get of it. Wait, what was that?

Alderic stopped pacing and cocked his ears. Yes, there it was again! The sound of battle from outside. It must be the others, it had to be the others!
“Help!” He shouted as loud as he could. “In here!”

((Sorry for the long awaited response peeps. School’s been a bitch. :-(. Anyway, I’m back. Heh heh) )

"Damn their gonna rush us" Garrus shouted, It was another group similar to the one in the cave, a mix batch of drow and local mercenaries. Damn it, what can they do? The alley way keeps them covered from arrow fire but at the same time there stuck here. The alley can work as a choke point, it will work in their favor for the time being.

Garrus pulled back into the alley way closer to his two other companions. He wasn't sure if he was hearing things but he could have sworn he heard somebody calling for help some where.

As the onslaught of enemies rushed them, Elk immediately began throwing out every flashbang and mana bolt he could at the fast-approaching enemies. Every step back he made, he took a cut at one of the enemies, distracted one of them, or blocked an attack. After a rather large flashbang he quickly made his way to the alley.

"Quick, out the other end, before they surround us!"
He ordered quickly, firing off a couple of mana bolts at the halmes present- they couldn't dispel it.

Elh'vir took the rear of the team, swinging his blade in small motions in front of him and toward the people Prince had just dazzled, forming 8-marks and other small loops in the air and spinning the blade this way into a wall of steel and cord. The attacks didn't have any real punch in them, but they kept the enemies at bay and forcing them to step back, as any unarmored part of their bodies that got into that field were cut right away.

Soon, he stepped more into the middle of street, taking larger swings and wide-area motions, bringing most of the enemy movement for halt and nearly cutting his team's last people's ankles off. But it couldn't last for long, there were just too many for him to keep at bay.

"Move it guys! I'll buy them off, be right behind you there!"

Garrus couldn't agree anymore with Elk, getting out is one problem but losing them will be another. Garrus backed slowly, keeping his black metal shield up blocking the small wave of spears thrusting in his direction, pushing him and the group further into the alley.

They were cautious and kept their distance, keeping him on his toes. Garrus lifted his shield up to block the a sudden jab aimed at his face, the spear clanged hard against the black metal and deflected to the side, leaving the halme over balanced and open for an attack but Garrus chose to jump back as a sudden rush of spears came forward.

Elk mana bolt pelted into the mob, sending two toppling and another fumbling back crashing into their unsuspecting comrades. Garrus took this much needed moment and escaped from the melee before they could gain back their footing.

Getting out the alley and back to the main streets, "Come on we need to fall back!" Garrus started to lead them out of the city. But where could they go? could they lead them back to the wagon and then what? damn it how did he get himself into this.

*ffvt*
*WHAM*
*gurgle...*

A crossbow bolt lanced out of the sky and impaled itself into the neck of a merc. Detir mini-fistpumped.

---

The mercs suddenly retreated, disappearing back into the fog as suddenly as they assaulted and became silent. Creepily silent.

---

As Alderic (sorry Zicks!) banged on the door, a shadow in the back detached itself and glided slowly forward. Soundlessly, it climbed onto the ceiling and leaned close to Alderic's ear.

"Hello there."

Alderic screamed at the top of his voice, venting all his rage and frustration to the world. He slammed himself against the door with all his might but to no avail. The sound of battle were getting more and more distant. That means that they were getting further and further away. NO! Alderic slammed himself against the steel doors once more. Then again. But once again to no avail. He considered freezing the door but Alderic knew that even if he froze it he would not be able to break the ice, which would be undoubtedly thick, in his current condition. So in short all that would accomplish would be to deplete his mana and in this situation he desperately needed it.

As if to highlight that point, at that exact moment somebody spoke behind Alderic. At once the Drow exploded into motion he spun around as quick as a striking viper and swung a fist at the dark figure hanging down from the ceiling.
