In the morning we headed down into the city. With our familiars spotting overhead, we determined that the devil was in the Northeast, but when we started to move to confront it, we saw that the House Grey soldiers were holding and interrogating prisoners near the river side. We decided to free prisoners first.
Juniper ambushed them in water elemental form and Anduin and I engaged them, quickly cutting through them. Anduin used a suggestion to prevent them killing prisoners while Juniper and I cut through them quickly. I had not intended to rage, but fury overtook me anyway and the fight quickly turned our way.
While the devil awoke and approached, one last soldier succeeded in fleeing with a prisoner. I gave chase and calmed myself enough to cast spells, trying to use eldrich powers to drop him without him killing his prisoner. I failed, hardly wounding him. Juniper healed the fallen citizen while I gave pursuit around the circle of stones in which he had killed her.
I returned to find Juniper being racked with magic. Perhaps the magic of the circle? Anduin’s blood wand revealed a syringe hidden it that seemed full of blood. They decided to inject it in Juniper and arcane struggle came to an end. I wish we had the time to study this circle and its ancient power, but I doubt it has any real power to offer us and it seems to me we must find a way to end this war.
These journal entries are going to be in-character play reports from ByW’s campaign, which we alternated playing with the Tyranny of Mundanity campaign and now the Primordial Frontier campaign. My character, Raglan “the Light”, admires RiH’s character, Anduin Damian and follows him believing his place in history will be as a companion of the royal adventurer. He is impressed with their elven companion, Juniper (played by BiW), but does not know her well.
