Chapter 15a: Apartment Hunting (Everyone)
Seeing Darkan react to WW hitting the altar gives him an idea.  He turns to the altar,  and shoves the flame into it up to his hand, and lets go.

WW is still crumpled, unconscious on the ground.

Kat tried to capture Darkan's free hand, she was able to get start of the manacle on, before Darkan pulled away. He pulled at the chains and they started to creak, as Darkan tried to break the chains and free himself. Kat stretched her fingers and was gratified to find that her talons were back.

Ali continued toward the altar and Darkan.

Knuckles shoved the flaming torch inside the altar and let it go.  The flaming torch lay on top of the altar next to Darkan.

Magus started to chant again, as he followed along behind Ali.

Whether from the chanting or for another reason, the glow of the flaming torch brightened. And the clear white light of it seemed to have an effect on Darkan, causing him to flinch away and scream. He threw himself harder and harder against the chains to free himself.

Kat steps back and then tries to go around his back to get the maniacal on him.  She strikes at his side of the free hand to get him to turn towards her, hoping swinging his arm back.

Kat struck at Darkan again, but was unsuccessful as he flailed against the chains, which started to creak and the altar began to crack further, as he struggled to free himself.

Knuckles jabbed the firebrand at Darkan's chest, but this time, the entity wasn't able to get out of the way. The burning torch sizzled at it sank into the darkness that was Darkan's chest, seemingly swallowed. Darkan shrieked.

Ali continued to approach with Magus trotting behind her, chanting as he moved.

The light in the room continued to swell, growing brighter and brighter, which seemed to burn at Darkan, who began to flail harder and harder to try to free himself.

As Draken flails around, she tries to impale his arm with her claws to hold it still while she puts on the chain.

Kat released her talons and impaled Darkan's arm, pinning it to the altar. Darkan shrieked in pain and outrage. She slapped the last manacle on the wrist.

The darkness in the room faded a bit more.

Knuckles stabbed his burning torch into Darkan's chest. Darkan's shriek grew louder.

Ali continued to close, as did Magus.

Those that were proficient in Latin (or at least familiar with it) may have recognized some of what Magus was chanting. HIs voice started rising, as he continued to chant and trot.

Darkan continued to flail and try to free himself. The chains creaked, but didn't break.

Ali got there and then a few seconds later, Magus arrived.




(OOC: BTW, congrats on the natural 3 to Kat for the impaling attack.)

Once she sees Darkan is immobilized and the job will soon be finished, Ali rushes over to WW. She'll use the little knowledge of first aid she gets as a police officer to examine WW.

Knuckles walked away from the altar, leaving Kat alone at the altar. She gave into her rage and struck at Darkan repeatedly, screaming "Die! Die! Die!" as she did so. As she did so, Darkan stopped flailing.  Blood and ichor splashed back over her.

Magus hurried over, chanting as he did so. The room continued to grow brighter and brighter, especially by the altar. As the altar grew brighter, Darkan seemed to fade, until he finally disappeared.

Kat continued to attack him, as he faded beneath her.

Knuckles headed over to WW to see if he could help. She didn't look well. He could tell that she was breathing, but was unconscious. Ali made it over and started to render first aid. She didn't seem to be bleeding and she couldn't tell whether there was anything broken due to WW's hardened skin.

The adrenaline and urgency for the child she's cared for keep Ali focused and driven as she tries to help WW.

John checks WW's pupils, he'd seen his share of knockouts ringside, hopefully that's all this was.

Kat stands there breathing hard, just being able to control herself. She looks around to see how everyone else is doing.

As Kat is struggling to get control of herself, Magus moved over to her and put his hand on her shoulder.  He whispered to her.

Ali and Knuckles checked WW and did their best to help her, which was enough to start to rouse her.

Everyone was able to go through the place, find some mystic texts that survived the bookcase fire, grab Carnacki's body, and travel back with Dr. Magus to Empire City.

WW is weak-kneed and more than a little loopy, but with some guidance, she can be lead back home. As soon as she's in a safe place, she'll try to change back to herself to see if that helps.

Once she changed back, all the damage she took was gone. She felt much better.

"I think I am fine now. Guess we will see." she says to WW. "Now I just want to take a long shower, I feel so dirty"
