The drop onto her head is enough to knock her out.

Urrun continues tripping, as the veils between the spheres start to slide away....

OOC Goran have any luck trying to straighten out Unrun?  Assuming no, but he's trying whatever hocus pocus he has up his sleeve.

To Urrun's perspective that is what is going on beyond the physical effect. Will roll to get out of it.


Ooc the spell is Ecstasy and I am just flying with it. I believe RAW just gives the same -2 to everything that Agony does.

Urrun starts to feel the  the good effects tapering off... he fights to prevent them going away, but has no ability to do so and slowly and unwillingly comes back to reality.

Goran finishes tending to Unrun as he starts to come out of his stupor.  The priestess sighs, but he really doesn't care about that.  She's still seemingly unconscious, or in some sort of delirious state, and that's good enough for him.  He begins to pick up his things and pack them so they can prepare to leave.

"Might be fun if she did not dabble with demons. But she does. Come on now, lets get her back..."

He hands Urrun his unconscious burden again, seeing how much he enjoyed carrying her last time, before taking back his crossbow, making sure it is cocked but not loaded, before slinging it and readying his axe and shield.

You exit into the sunlight on temple hill. There is no sign of the various  escaped cultists, who may be anywhere. It is a fairly smooth walk of twenty minutes back to the Hadereum.

Goran will add the content of his questioning, explaining that none in the Hadereum are implicated in their religious rites.  He will also add in appropriate details about their worship practices, based on what he saw of their rites.  Finally, Goran will point out that they are outside of religious guidelines as set out by the Hadereum, as they were consorting with demons and other foul creatures.

He's be willing to help question the priestess if they needed assistance.  He has a certain zeal about these things.

Upon arrival at the Hadereum, you are surprised to see the plutocrat leading a procession of acolytes and guards leading a few men in robes whose hands are tied together, and linked by a rope. He seems to be in a bad mood. A couple sets of laborers are pulling handcarts that are loaded with bodies.

Goran does not address the pleurocrat directly.  Instead he turns to his fellow adventurer and asks in a quiet voice "Hograth, do you know how to interpret this?  It seems as if they are bringing home the dead and the murderers from an event.  How do you interpret the situation?  It seems like we should pause for a time to let this settle down."

The plutocrat  glances toward you with a look of frustration.

Goran is quick to interject "Be sure to keep her gagged.  She has the ability to manipulate people using her spiritual favors, and could be a problem to manage.  The weak willed could easily be swayed by her."

"There has been a grave incident. Flavius, secure that one, and see that she is bridled. Hograth, take these four to detention separate from her. Goran is it? And the dog man? Once you stow that one, I need your help taking these to the necrotorium below. Remember, don't walk on the mosaics unless you are wearing our robes. Flavius, put something on Goran and the dog."

Interesting.  Goran finds this very interesting.  And to his liking.  He's perhaps too eager to see where they are going and get involved with what they are doing.  He'll nod assent silently, and then get busy assisting the Plutocrat with his work.

Urrun doesn't like the big words he doesn't know and doesn't like the sound of this ... this place is not his friend either.

"The dogman's name is Urrun, and he has proved very useful for sniffing out demons, something we should get back to doing. It sounds like this incident would be better dealt with by us, and you take care of the prisoners...tell us more about it, or should we walk and talk?"

Noticing Urrun is uncomfortable he will try to comfort him a little with a pat on the back.

"It would appear that the incident has been dealt with;There were a set of contractors from the guild that slaughtered a group of cultists and demons engaged in unspeakable rites, and then later slew a demonologist. In so doing, they lost my envoy, who was here to hunt demons. What is this battered woman about?"

Goran considers the conversation for a moment.  The dog man did not have religion, but he had proven himself worthy as a traveling companion.  He seemed honest enough, and was definitely someone to be counted on in a difficult moment.  Perhaps he could still be persuaded to accept religeon some time in the future.  It was a worthy exploration, and so Goran speaks up for his fellow adventurer.

"Urrun was more honorable in our travel than many I have worked with.  I would count him as a friend, and ask you treat him as such.  He helped us find demons among the common people, disguised as they sometimes can.  Without him, our work would not have been a success.

Also, this woman led many good people astray into perverted sexual rites with demons disguised as humans.  They used her to prey upon your citizens and create more of their own abominations as progeny.  She knowingly consorted with them and facilitated this abuse.  I have run into few as corrupted and evil as this woman, and she should be treated accordingly.

Be careful, she can twist even the most honest man with fake pleasures.  Given even a moment without her gag, and she could easily take control of a man, someone who you believe to be trustworthy.  Someone such as this...  It may be better that she is put to death instead of allowing her to continue this trail of shattered humanity."


OOC The disads on this character seem to warrant some strong words in this situation.

Hograth noted that she was still unconscious.

"But see if you can find out how she came upon them. I am not convinced that she had the magics to summon them herself. We need to find her co-conspiritors..."
