Round 4

J'landria and Rammid having already made the leap, they are followed by Aalistair, Mirna, and Wraith.  Aeletheros steadies the helm and prepares to follow.

The air sailors scurry over the rigging and sails, still rushing to tuck and secure everything after the rapid stop.  The windship floats and bobs, creaking and thumping as it rubs against the tower.

Athellin and Rioniv prepare to follow the others over the side of the windship as well.


OoC:  will follow this up with a simultaneous post from the tower side.

The battle over, most of the crew has returned to the upper deck of the Wind of Fate.

The badly injured Arimites slump down upon the deck near to where J'landria ministers to Mirna.

The Marukan air sailors halfheartedly continue rigging the vessel to sail, moving as if in a daze.

J'landria hums, sings, and purrs as she mixes the poultice, applying it to the visible wounds on those near her, waiting for her ministrations.  She patches each bit with a leaf - or several depending on the size of the wound, and the whole thing adheres to the skin.

"Let them fall off naturally," she tells them with a sigh.  "My spirit, aided by Jakar and the herbs will knit your wounds closed."

Tirtha walks over to Dromak, and motions her aside to a corner of the ship.

"Well, what do you think of them so far?" she smiles. "Let's invite them back to our camp, where we may discuss futher plans. We all need food and rest."

"Yes, perhaps we might get back to the camp, though it will be full dark soon.  I am accustomed to flying on my own, not in a contraption such as this."

Looking this way and that about the deck, the little Kasmiran approaches Rammid.  "I know you must still be hurt from the battle, but might you take charge of security while Mirna recovers?"

Athellin shakes his head at Wraith Zephyr. "We'd best get that arrow out of your arm, while there's a chance for recovery.  We'll get to everyone in time."  He then gives Wraith a leather strap to bite down on, and prepares to remove the arrow.

Feeling considerably better after Tirtha's ministrations Aeletheros takes the wheel of the windship; "Which way are we heading for now? Anywhere away from this tower works for me. When we do return we should do it in daylight so those damned night demons won't be as dangerous."

OOC: 01:39, Today: Aeletheros rolled 26 using 1d20+7. Pilot (Windship)

After returning to the top deck and seeing everything contained, Aalistair excuses himself to check the Fate's stores to be sure everything is as it should be. It would do no good to escape peril so narrowly only  to be felled by poison or misfortune days hence. While he walks, he prays to Aa. "Oh great and powerful Aa, I know you asked me to seek you here, but I fear I was unworthy to the task. Allow me, I pray, to learn humbleness from this and return soon to your all-knowing mind, your all-seeing gaze, and your all-powerful embrace."



Aalistair rolled 22 using 1d20+3. Conveyance (Windship).

Rammid nods at the Kasmirin and takes a watchful stance near the rail. He holds the blue iron axe in hand, going over the words that Rioniv spoke that activated the light.

23:56, Today: Rammid rolled 11 using 1d20+3. Guard.

As preparations are made for the windship to depart, some groans and movement are heard from among the downed Rajans on the deck.

((OOC: How long is Mirna down for?))


OOC:  The count, I'm afraid.  I generally run that once you go below 0 hp, you're in the bedrest category.  She'll need at least a night's sleep, and really ought to have a couple, even with the magical healing.  Remember, 0hp is pretty much death for your common NPC grunts.

Turning back towards the wheel, Tirtha comes to Aeletheros' side. "If you come about and head due north-west about a few hundred yards, there is a spot along the northern slope of this mountain." She turns to point into the dark distance. "It is in sight of the tower."

"Will you need a lookout?" she presses. "I can see at night."

Sensing the stirring of the fallen Rajans on deck, Tirtha suddenly calls out, "Rajans, still alive!"

Wraith emerges from the hold, clutching his left arm and bristling when he hears Tirtha's declaration.  "Where?"  he says, left arm now dangling limply at his side.  His right hand curls around the hilt of his blade.

Realizing that some of the Rajans are still alive. Rammid gets a few of the crew members not overly burdened to help him tie them up.

Wraith approaches Tirtha and, smiling, says, "Forgive me, but I don't think I've introduced myself to you."  The airman bows.  "Wraith Zephyr."  He clutches his left arm again and says, "Forgive me for doing so, but may I impose upon you to attend to this wound before it robs me of my arm?"  A sharp grin punctuates his speech.  "One would think, given the amount of scrapes that I endure, that I would've learned how to close my own wounds."  Wraith shakes his head.  "Anyway, welcome aboard."

"And I am Tirtha of Tamaranth," the Ariane politely replies. With a weary sigh, she nods and waves Wraith over to one side of the ship. "I am at my limit, but I can try."

Laying a gentle hand on the arrow-wound on Wraith's arm, the Seeker chants a few syllables in the Elder Tongue. A yellow glow infuses the wound, sealing it from within and sending a tingle of warmth upward.

As Wraith's arm suffuses with warmth, the remaining tension lodged within him begins to evaporate.  "Thanks," he says, kneading the wound with his the fingers of his right hand; he retrieves the arrow and casts it over the side of the vessel.

Next, the airman quickly preens himself, and, retrieving his cloak, carves a strip of shimmering cloth from its tatters and fashions for himself a sash and winds about his head.  "Now I look more like a corsair than a proper airman."  He flashes Tirtha a cunning grin and stalks towards their captives.  "We can use the rest of my cape to tie them," he says, feeling better with each step.

As several folks go about their business, Aeletheros flies the windship to the location Tirtha has indicated.

Aalistair, still sore from battle, moves about the windship, checking stores and goods. 

J'landria moves from Mirna on to Hakim, Nohren, and Dromak.  Each seems better off from her care.

As twilight fades, and the full dark of night comes on, it appears that all have survived the battle, though everyone is battered and exhausted.

"All of us would benefit from long rest, I think," says Wraith, overcome by his own weariness.  "In truth, that was one of the most vicious battles that I've participated in."  He stands, arms akimbo, and shakes his head.  "There were a few dicey moments during that melee.  I wasn't entirely sure we'd survive," he says, unabashedly."  The corners of his lips curl upwards.  "Remind me to hire a Thrall or two at our next port-of-call."

Tirtha disembarks from the ship at the rocky clearing, and checks on her silvermane, Shivar.

Later, back on the ship, she eats a simple meal of vegetable tubers and seeds. She spreads out her spinifax bedroll on whatever surface is provided and performs a short meditation before sleep.

From her shoulder-bag she withdraws a smooth, violet orb of stone about 4 inches in diameter. Placing a hand above its surface, the orb pulses faintly with a violet glow. After a few moments she lays down, cradling the orb and whispering into it.

After making sure the windship is securely anchored, Aeletheros looks over at the trussed Rajan soldiers. He looks at his companions and gestures at the Rajan; "So, what are we going to do with them? As I recall they tend to be somewhat resistant to interrogation due to their fanatical views on death."

In reply to Aeletheros (msg # 615):

Mirna gives a weak smile from her bed on the deck, "Well," she says almost casually, "We could cut their heads off, throw them off the ship once we reach a nice high altitude, or, cut their heads off and throw them off the ship from a high altitude." she pauses for a moment. "I'm in favor of the last option myself."

The injured are treated and moved to bunks belowdecks as it gets colder with the dark coming on.  During the night, a cold rain falls, washing the blood from the decks.

While most are exhausted, a watch is managed throughout the night, though it passes uneventfully.
