"Well.  I have some idea where to find powdered chalk -- don't they use it to mark the field for jugger?  Or we could just get a lump of the stuff and draw the circle with it.  But where would be find crushed, salted demon bone?"

"Probably at ye friendly neighborhood Hadereum..."
Grimaldi noticed their "leader" had reasserted himself. He hoped this wasn't going to like working with Broderick.. Grimaldi leered, from within his hood.

Had the recently slain demons been salted, the remains would have lasted long enough to be harvested for such alchemical purposes.

Your full group is gathered, the Thuggees have brought the statuette and the scroll, as well as a goodly supply of marigolds.

Ardenas quickly acquires some chalk.

"This will have to do.

"Are you sure you can pull off a summoning?"

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
After a short prayer to a goddess of knowledge he remembered from childhood, Mancini walked over to Ardenas and grabbed the chalk from him.

As if he was not fully control of his being, Mancini began to draw the shape of the pentagram, instructing the Kali followers where to place the items so they would be most helpful to the summoning. After he finished, he instructed the group where to stand and asked Norman to keep watch for them, as he would not be able to do anything else while attempting the summoning.

With everything in place, Mancini began the summoning.

12:50, Today: Mancini rolled 8 using 3d6.  Ritual Magic (IQVH att-2 +6 prep bonus)= 15-2+6=19.

(Ooc: Mancini plans on using 12 fp and burning 8 hp as fp for a total of 20 fp in contribution to the Great Kalima summoning.)

The priest and his three Thuggee devotees are able to contribute 9 FP between them. Any non spellcaster participating can lend 1 FP, any spellcaster can lend up to 2.  Between Norman and the cultists,  you have  10 FP, plus whatever Aoife and Ardenas (up to 2 each) and Oly (up to 1) give, with a comfortable 15 out of 20 FP com8ng from the circle.

Grimaldi, being a loner, and wanting to reserve his strength for security purposes, hangs back, looking on, leaning against a wall, arms folded.
15:49, Today: Grimaldi rolled 15 using 3d6.  thaumatolgy ~ 16.
He follows along, with curiosity observing the ritual, learning from the experience...

A magic circle drawn in chalk, with a garland of marigolds, an extra-large red and orange silk sari, a statue of the goddess Kali, a blessed scroll, and a pile of demon ash, and an invocation lasting ten minutes...

.... there is a shimmer in the air, a scent of hot metal and garam marsala... and a shape of flame begins to form...

The flame forms an orangy red aura around a four armed Silhouette  that gradually begins to solidify into a familiar three eyed form.
Hair of flame, flesh of obsidian. Coral at her wrists and ankles, wreaths of marigolds around her throat, a spear poised at the ready.

Grimaldi raises from a crouch, having heard the name spoken. He was a bit relieved, fearing someone or something else may have been summoned. Still, this was his first encounter with Kalima. Although he heard heard good things spoken of her, he was wary of the group.

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Mancini, spent from performing the summoning and in shock that it worked, bows politely before the minor god. "It is nice to see you on this side of the plane, Kalima."

He waits for a second before continuing. "We have a lead on the demon shop. We would be grateful for any assistance you can lend."

"I am impressed that you were able to call me back to this place,
Perhaps we can make this transit a more frequent thing"



Summonable Ally at 110% of character value: base cost is 6, summonable is +100%, requires ritual is -10%
6 pts for appearance rate of 6
11 for summonable with an appearance rate of 9.

Gathering your forces to summon her in the first place is 2 points each, I never thought you would try to get her back!

"We've not met before...I'm Grimaldi. Welcome back to our plane, Dame Kalima."
Grimaldi approached and joined the group. He was also impressed, as well as curious, with the whole thing.
