Welcome to Banished Quest!
You take the role of a young mage labeled a criminal by his people and cast out into the wider world. In the last thread you got gored by a charging corpse monster.

It is currently the 26th of Svarthi, in the year 936 NH.

You're struck by just how immense the pain in your abdomen is whilst hurtling through the air, further into the hallway. The only indication that your attacker exist at all is your own red blood outlining the shape of an otherwise invisible horn. You land hard upon the rough, uneven stone amidst a stagnant pool of blood and rotting vegetation, your armor only partially softening your fall. Fortunately the wound in your abdomen has already healed, though you don't recall exerting any conscious effort to close the jagged gash. A benefit of your expertise in the magical arts, no doubt.
>Vys Pool: (51/66)

>Combat Initiated!
>Allied Turn!
>Enemies Remaining: 1x Wandering Spirit
>Allies: Darzi, Fulvia, Mortia, Profectus
>Status: Unharmed

Profectus angles his shield, sparks streaming from the metal surface as your unseen attacker carries on his assault. Darzi, standing just behind your elven compatriot, shoves her long bladed spear forward and buries it deep within what you assume to be the creature's chest. Cracking fills the air as a blue bolt of vys discharges from the spear's tip, sending shards of bone and bits of singed flesh flying through the air.

Flame, accompanied by the stench of burning hair, licks across some unseen surface suspended in midair. No doubt Darzi's attack caused the beast's fur to catch fire. Fulvia seems to use this as a marker for her own attack, willing into existence a half dozen globules of liquid fire and hurling them towards the patch of burning flesh. The first strikes the beast and spills across its shoulder, revealing much of its torso and right arm. The second strikes lower, exploding within its now gaping chest cavity. Unfortunately the others are snuffed out before they can reach the creature, simply vanishing as they make contact.

Darzi is a whore

>>45015913

Fulvia's monocular eye narrows to a singular point of blue light, glowing brightly in the darkness of the hallway. Her voice forces its way into your thoughts, thundering despite your prior mental reinforcement. {It is assembling a runic array.}

>Use Surya's Vice to hurl a bolt of lightning at the creature before it can complete whatever it's doing, though this runs the risk of harming your companions. (4 vys)
>You've still got your Rhynian Officer's Pistol, charge a shot with enough fire magic to level a small building and see how if it can survive without an upper body. (3 vys)
>This creature is made of meat, and Water Magic is particularly good at destroying meat. Rot the flesh off its bones. (2 vys)
>The beast doesn't seem particularly well put together. A good slash from your shortsword might be able to bisect it completely.

By the way, now we know that the Shortsword does

We should toss Prof that if his sword doesn't have good effect.

I've been a follower from the start
>>
>>45016230
That's a contingency plan mate. I'd much prefer to blow it to smitheroons using our trusty handcannon. I think we could actually do both by chucking it to Darzi, who's almost a legendary tier combatant. We could also toss the shortsword to Prof too, if his falcata isn't...cutting it.
>>
>>45015921
Say, boss. We're getting a few suggestions for tossing more powerful weaponry to our companions. Could we include such actions in our action phase assuming the shot is successful and we get a bit of breathing room?

ROOOOOOOLL 3d10+12 (+6 from Fire Magic, +2 from Warlock Armor, +4 from Shield of the Scorpion) vs DC 27 (Base 25, +6 from Spirit Fuckery, -2 from Cramped Confines, -2 from Large Target)

You'd have an additional +4 to the DC from partially obscured/invisible target, but due to >>45016068 remembering your armor's various and manifold useful enchantments I'll waive that.

>>45016307
Sure, Mik could toss his shortsword to Prof and draw his trident from his cloak. I probably wouldn't require you to roll for that, because your shortsword is metal and Mik is a fairly competent Metal Vatis. It'd be easy to get it to go where he needs to.

I'll tack it on if the roll is successful, otherwise Mik probably won't have the opportunity.

So, are we just assuming the void monster is dead? Seems like Soma thinks it's a bossfight; even wrote a few paragraphs about the mechanics behind the monster. I doubt a single shot is enough to take him out.

You leverage yourself onto one knee and brace your shield against the stone, steadying the barrel of your pistol against its rim. A thought occurs, and channeling vys into your armor's helm your perception of the world shifts. Lights and colors bloom everywhere, vibrant yellows seeming to radiate off the body of your prey and claw at the ghostly strands of blue and purple which seem to represent the ambient vys in your surroundings. Twin spirits composed of ash dance around the roiling ball of fire and vys that is Profectus' arm. It almost seems as though the power within is struggling to get out, but finds itself trapped by its stone shell.

You also note with some curiosity just how vibrant Fulvia appears. She gleams through the lens of the Sight, a walking embodiment of magical power. Designs etch their way across the surface of her skin, runic arrays you'd been unable to perceive previously filling the air around her for no obvious reason.

Unfortunately you have little time to study Fulvia or your other companions, the more pressing matter of concern is the beast before you. Though you're still unable to perceive the 'body' of the creature you can see something else. A pale white, worm-like creature running up roughly where you think the monster's spine ought to be. Branching off the larva's body are innumerable thin yellow tendrils, spreading throughout what is presumably its patchwork body like the roots of a tree. What's more, a runic array assembles itself rapidly in the air just in front of the beast. At a glance you can discern the rune for blood being affected by the rune for leech, but there are a number of others you don't recognize.

(1/3)
>>
You adjust your aim, settling on the center of this maggot-like spirit and pumping Fire magic into the barrel of your pistol. Red begins to seep from the metal, polluting the air around you with surprising rapidity only to be swept away by the tide of ambient vys around you. Just as you squeeze the trigger, the veins of yellow begin to twitch and contract.

It leaps to the side, slamming itself bodily against the wall of the tunnel and trying to twist itself to face you, but you adjust your aim and fire. You're blinded by the resultant flash, a beam of red carving through the space between yourself and the beast. The explosion is immense, the roar of flame and the crash of stone against stone suddenly filling the tunnel even as a wave of blistering heat washes over you.

Cutting the flow of vys to your helmet reveals the full extent of the damage caused. The beast, now visible, lies amidst a blackened portion of the tunnel, now partially collapsed. Fortunately your companions seem mostly unharmed, but oddly thick rivers of once stagnant blood flow towards a point in space just in front of where the creature once stood, forming a thick, circular glob hovering apparently under its own power.

>Enemy Turn!
>Enemies Remaining: 1x Wandering Spirit (Severely Wounded)

>>
You think the fight over and the monster defeated, but Fulvia's voice intrudes upon your thoughts. {It flees down the hall, spreading corruption in its wake. It would be unwise to allow this entity to survive the day.}

Channeling vys into your helmet you're once more struck by the veritable assault of color and light, but cutting through the excess you see what Fulvia is talking about. From the pile of rubble where the remnants of the creature's body lies shattered, a slowly degrading trail of yellow leads further into the complex of caves and tunnels.

>Seal this place and be done with it, surely the spirit won't be able to cause your brother or his people any trouble in its reduced state.

Spend 5 vys to make it a Great Success?
You're at 48/66 currently.

>>45018599
To a limited extent, yes. However it's specifically referring to the Hidden rune, as in a hidden enchantment. It will still appear thanks to the sight, but fainter than it would have otherwise. Basically, without the Sight you wouldn't have even been able to roll. I would've rolled instead for Fulvia to see if she detects it in time.

>>45018545 25

spend 8 for great success. It doesn't matter if the thing sees us spending for this since it's so weak. It's better to spend 8 so we can catch it faster before it can recover its strength.

Just a PSA folks; the spirit possessed monster could weave runic arrays on the fly. It was confirmed that it did in fact, leave a trap. Our success allowed us to avoid it though. In the future for such pursuits, it would be highly advantageous to send out a swarm of Meseeks to trigger traps or ambushes.

Sighing, you reach through the connections afforded to you by the brooch to communicate with your companions. {Everyone, the creature is still alive. It seems to be some sort of parasitic spirit which, due to the destruction of its vessel, has become disembodied. It's fled down the tunnel, likely to recuperate. If we wish to end this we'll need to hurry, and destroy the spirit before it's able to reform.}

You're met with a vague sense of agreement, though Darzi seems concerned. Before proceeding you glance from your shortsword to the heavy falcata that Profectus wields. They seem roughly similar in nature, even vaguely the same shape now that you really think about it. Plus he's probably far more skilled with a shortsword than you are. {Profectus, trade blades with me. I think mine will serve you better.}

He seems leery, but hands you his falcata without complaint and accepts your shortsword. He swings it experimentally through the air, apparently deeming it an acceptable replacement. You tuck his falcata into your cloak and instead extract your trident, it's ability to damage the soul of a creature directly should prove advantageous while fighting a spirit.

As a group you advance down the tunnels, Profectus and Darzi flanking you on either side while Fulvia and Mortia follow behind. You maintain the flow of vys to your helmet, wary of encountering any unexpected surprises left for you by the fleeing worm. Your caution proves warranted, because just as you round a corner into a narrow hallway you spot a runic circle glowing faintly on the stone floor.
(1/4)
>>
Almost by reflex you reinforce yourself with Metal magic, but unfortunately you don't notice the rune quick enough to stop Darzi from activating it, but channeling vys you pull moisture from the air and form it into a block of ice. Pulling it forward you slam the block into Darzi's helmet, knocking her away from the now activated runic array just as it activates. There's a momentary sensation of being pulled forward and then a deafening crack, the world suddenly gone silent. It appears as though a perfectly spherical portion of the tunnel ahead has simply been removed, cut away and leaving only smooth stone behind.

You feel something wet trickling down your checks, and focusing your will manage to repair your shattered eardrums. Profectus is less fortunate, having been pulled off his feet and now writhing about on the floor, his hands over his ears. He's screaming, cursing the gods from what you can discern, but you doubt he can hear himself. Darzi got the worst of it by far. She's missing her left foot entirely and seems like she might be unconscious.

You comfort yourself with the knowledge that at least nobody died. That's what's really important. Channeling vys you manage to repair Darzi's eardrums without too much trouble. She still isn't moving, but you'll deal with that later. For now you focus on regrowing her foot. Profectus stops shouting obscenities as Fulvia channels vys, apparently healing his wounds.
>Vys Pool: (47/66)

(2/3)
>>
Darzi's Elaudian armor repairs itself as rapidly as you regrow her foot, soon sealing itself off once again around her healed limb. She jerks upright almost as soon as her armor finishes repairing itself, throwing herself to her feet and stumbling forward into the crater left by the activation of that rune. You manage to stop her before she gets too far, allowing her to steady herself.

Profectus has likewise pulled himself together, Fulvia and Mortia blessedly unaffected. Unfortunately there's no time to rest. {We're wasting time. Follow me.}

You set off again down the tunnels, your companions allowing you a greater lead this time. You don't have to travel far to find the spirit's nesting ground. Bones lie scattered about the floor, many of them so decayed they look as though the slightest disturbance could reduce them to dust. You spot the larval spirit immediately, spreading its roots through a skeletal figure still clutching a rusted sword and shield.

It rises jerkily to its feet, the bones held together seemingly by force of will alone. All that remains of the spirit is its head, but as its roots grow so too does its body. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to end this as quickly as you would've otherwise hoped. It's wrapped itself in a thin veneer of blue vys, glowing brightly even through the lens of the Sight.

Fulvia fires off a spell, a ball of sickly green vys latching itself to the surface of the barrier surrounding the spirit and spreading tendrils of black across the formerly unmarred surface. In its wake the barrier is left either destroyed or at the very least severely weakened, pockmarked by holes and held together only barely by the thinnest of strings.

There's no time to wait for Fulvia's spell to weaken the barrier, the spirit will have recovered much of its essence before either you or your companions are able to harm the creature. Thus, you opt for a faster method. After all, why learn the Vys metamagic if you never even bother to use it?

You brace your shield on the stone floor in front of you, bracing your pistol against the rim just as you had earlier. The spirit doesn't even attempt to get out of the way as you channel vys into pistol, far more than you did last time. Perhaps it's overkill, but you'll be damned if this bastard survives another shot.

The spirit is in the midst of assembling a rune, the intention of which seems to be to destroy vys in an enormous area judging by the sheer number of overlapping 'large' runes modifying the central vys rune. Fortunately it will never get the chance to complete its enchantment. A thought sends tendrils of vys extending across the intervening space between you and the walking corpse, and latching onto the barrier you rip it away with only minor difficulty. You don't allow the monstrosity to react.

Electricity crackles in the air as the second flint wheel begins to spin, the hammer's steel tip sending smoke and sparks flying as it ignites the powder in the flash pan. The effect is immediate and devastating. Where once a decomposing corpse stood animated by the power of the spirit's will, now there was nothing. Charred fragments of bone and rock rained down on you and your companions, and in the wall behind the skeleton there was a massive crack running from floor to ceiling, and a crater where the bullet actually made impact.

We survived by bugging the fuck out as it came through.

It knew we were there and sent his guy ahead to get us to leave. If it wanted us dead we would have been. That thing probably looked into our soul in the milisecond it saw us and understood everything of our being.

The spirit is as close to dead as a spirit can be. It had been a larva roughly the size of your arm when you first encountered it, crawling up and down the spine of its patchwork body. Now it is a worm barely the length of your finger, writhing in the floor. You're surprised there's anything left of it at all after the damage wrought by that shot.

You tuck your pistol away in your cloak and stand up straight, considering what you ought to do with the creature. You don't think you could actually, truly kill it but it might be worth trying, or perhaps you could somehow imprison it in a vessel of some sort? Gemstones seem good candidates, and you have a few stored in your cloak.

We don't know how to enchant yet, we're just imprisoning it. Plus it's to weak to actually power any useful enchantment, soma confirmed.

<~Soma_QM> It will be reduced, as Atma was when you found him. However, since it's a larval spirit it's not going to end up like atma. It will end up like the minor spirits which hang around Profectus' arm.

it will still degrade it. DE is corrosive to normal matter and Wood would hold up for less than shit.

A large strong Gemstone would hold ot for quite a long time. At the very lease until we have the proper ability to contain the thing.

Wow. I'm pretty sure Mik has the knowledge to make WMD's and in fact, has pocket WMD's in his cloak at this very moment.

Couldn't we meditate on our newest acquisition to see if there's any runes that more directly affect spirits so that we could fight against them better? Currently we're using the Divinity stuff for all our anti-spirit needs, but maybe there's something more descriptive and thus more effective.
>>
>>45022232
I'm down for this
>>
>>45022211
Hmm. We're have to damage the crystal a little bit and create channels for such a hypothetical vys bomb to output it's energy, sorta like how the shockwave sword's gem was cracked. Maybe have Chryssa erode channels in the Anthusian crystal. Remote doesn't allow Mik to just set things off by thinking at it. It'll need a modifier like Touch. We can have the bomb be set off by iron or something, and engineer and arming device to have a piece of iron trigger the runic arry on our Vys bomb

There's so much shit Mik could pull. Something to destroy all the air in a huge radius would be hilarious.

Nice shitpost anon. Threats of both yuri and NTR at the same time. The lack of capitalization was a nice touch too.
>>
>>45022332
The shockwave was more of the idea since we don't really have any way to keep new air from coming in without sustaining the enchantment. It'd fuck everyone up from being in a vaccuum and then they'd get smashed by the onrush of tons and tons of air.
>>
>>45022332
>>45022382
Would turning the area into a perfect vacuum for that split moment pull their guts out?
>>
>>45022285
Soma said just smashing it would set it off.

Have Chryss hit it with an arrow from a mile away. Or use one of a dozen other ways to break it.
>>
>>45022511
Drop it from 15000 feet in the air with armor on that provides internal air.
>>
>>45022476
Probably not. Expansion of gut gasses is what usually causes organ distention in explosive decompression scenarios and the hypothetical rune would also get that gas inside of them. It'd collapse their lungs for sure, though.
>>

You advance upon the shattered remnant of the spirit, using a simple manipulate spell to pin it down and cease its squirming. It's amazing how much weaker it is now in comparison to before. You barely have to exert any sort of effort at all to control it.

Folding your legs underneath yourself, you reach into your cloak and extract one of the gemstones you bought on the vague assumption that you could use them to contain the essence of others' souls. The soul is not wildly dissimilar to the divine essence that spirits are composed of, so in theory gemstones should work just as well to contain a spirit.

Before you allow yourself to slip into your trance, you reach out through the brooch to your companions. {I'm going to attempt to imprison the spirit so we'll have something to take back to my brother, thus proving Mortia's innocence.} Also because you want to experiment upon a captured spirit, but you'll keep that to yourself for now. {Fulvia, I must admit that new body of yours proved useful. Darzi, Profectus, get some rest. That trap very nearly killed you both. Mortia, you're welcome.}

You can feel Mortia shrink into herself mentally, obviously ashamed. Had it not been for her irrational panic and indignation, you wouldn't have had to deal with any of this nonsense. Granted you also wouldn't have discovered a shortcut to Elaudia, but that's beside the point. Her desire to clear her name could have gotten you or one of the others killed.
(1/4)
>>
Darzi collapses against the wall of the cavern, her helmet peeling away to reveal sweat-slicked hair and pallid features. She's still breathing hard, and doesn't quite seem herself. Profectus is doing much better by comparison, though his hands are shaking. You passively wonder if your relative lack of affect regarding near-death experiences is a sign of your mental stability, or lack thereof, but quickly dismiss the idea in favor of the spirit clasped in your magical grasp.

Your initial efforts are simple, all you do is take the spirit and try to 'channel' it into the gemstone as you might vys. However, this quickly proves useless. The most you accomplish is perhaps pumping some of your vys into the spirit, which has little if any effect. Next, to test a theory, you actually try filling the gemstone with vys and much to your delight it actually works, the gemstone, an emerald, starts to glow with a soft internal light.

Having proven in theory that you can use gems to store at the very least vys, you shift your attention to contemplating how you might go about imprisoning a spirit within one. It strikes you after only a few minutes of meditation that you've been ignoring the obvious solution: enchanting. You know the runes for both mind and soul, if you carve them together you should be able to entrap the spirit while also maintaining its mind.

While you're testing theories, you decide to try inscribing the rune a little differently than you might usually. If you were to do this the traditional way, you'd need to use either two runic arrays, one on either side, or a composite array using two separate enchantments. Instead, you inscribe Contain as the base rune using some simple Earth magic to erode the surface of the gemstone, and then inscribe on either side the runes for Mind and Soul. Then you connect all three runes in a chain.
(2/3)
>>
You're not entirely sure this will work, or if it does what effect it might have on the enchantment. However, you're not exactly stressed for time here. If it doesn't work, you can just try again. You channel vys into the inscription into it glows bright green, and then you allow yourself to slip deeper into your trance. The ebb and flow of ambient vys comes into view only to vanish a moment later, replaced instead by the souls of yourself and your companions, as well as what little remains of the spirit's divine essence and a thousand thousand twinkling points of light in the distance.

Finally even the souls of others fade into black, and the thin golden threads which bind together the mortal realm replace them. Here the rune glows brightly, burning bright and blue in your mind's eye. You allow instinct to take hold, 'grasping' the ghostly symbols and using Earth magic to slice away a portion of the golden threads you know intuitively correspond to the carved emerald. Just as reality begins to unravel, you replace the thread with the glowing runic array and the vys is rapidly transmuted into simply another length of gold.

You allow yourself to withdraw from your meditative trance, though not fully. Only far enough that you're aware of the spirit's divine essence and the now enchanted gemstone. You're careful not to touch the latter, just in case you risk imprisoning your own soul within the gem. Instead you simply use manipulate to 'press' the spirit against the emerald. Much to your chagrin, it's sucked inside with little difficulty, the emerald flashing white as it seals within itself the spirit's divine essence.

Your eyes snap open, only to wince against the brightness of the glowing gem. Any hint of green has been overpowered by the divine essence of the spirit, and instead it glows a brilliant white.
