Karin nearly rolled her eyes at the man's insistence. She could appreciate the gravity of the situation but nevertheless the man rubbed her the wrong way. And thus she moved back and away from the keep.

Roland watched the magic knight move back, away from the keep entrance. "So what happens now? We cannot just leave the staff out here, for any fool with half a brain and delusions of grandeur to take for his own use. And be mindful that your man over there requires a healer's attention."

He decided to leave his own introduction for later. There would be time for that once the more pressing issues had been sorted out, but at this stage, he wasn't even sure if Zerithor knew what he was doing.

"Fate would not be so kind as to remove that perpetual thorn from my side, " Zerithor said, casting a glance at the unconscious man.

Ignoring him, he planted his staff on the ground, and it glowed for an instant. In the next moment, the dirt had turned into a small pool* of a transparent brown liquid, resembling a syrup of some sort. He pulled the staff away - the bottom somehow had nothing dripping from it, despite the tip having been in the pool. "Throw that thing in here before anything else happens" he said curtly to Karin.

Meanwhile, the three other members of the Order*, reached the group. Narkus set the stretcher down between him and Palan, while Miss Blackiron* planted a hand on his shoulder and stared at his face. "What happened?" she asked flatly.

"Tortured, Miss Blackiron, " Roland muttered, equally flatly. "We can consider ourselves fortunate that his captor wanted him alive, at least: the leprechaun wanted to get information out of him. Something about killing a girl, if Miss Violet over there spoke correctly. I leave him in your hands, and I presume that he will have quite the tale to tell when he wakes up."

He paused, fishing into his monk's robes and pulling out the evidence that he'd gathered from the scene. "Speaking of which, Captain, we retrieved a gold coin and a shard from the exploding cauldron which the leprechaun used. I don't know if they'll help in the investigation, but please try to temper your response with a little more dignity."

Without too much ceremony, Karin lobbed the staff to make it fall into the pool of brown liquid.

"One problem sorted out, " Zerithor said to Karin and the others after the girl had dropped the staff. "Give it a minute for the block to harden, and then pull it out and carry it to the vault. As for your coins, " he turned to Roland. "A leprechaun's life is 'worth his weight in gold' - and several other metals: The price he pays for escaping. But his magic shouldn't have been able to do that in the first place with the Keep so close - the same as with your shambler. It does need more investigation, but I can't leave the keep - hence why we need the Queen of Rylaath, " he pointed at Zerithan, "to grace us with his presence."

"Tortured..." the chirurgeon said as she inspected Zerithan. "No major blood loss or injury, save the head wound - most likely cause of his current state. That, and half a barrel of mead." Without warning, she slapped the unconscious man in the face with one of her large hands. He started and partially rolled onto his side, mumbling unintelligibly as he came to, though still lying down with his eyes closed. Violet somehow managed to recover from the Captain's verbal barrage and crawl over to Zerithan, trying to completely wake him up.

"What did I bring this out for, then?" Narkus asked as he kicked the ground and picked up the stretcher again, half-joking.

"Shambler?"

Eh, you guys know who's asking.

"So basically, we need the reparations that were meant to be done to the core in the keep?" asked Karin as she waited for the liquid to solidify.

"That's a possibility, " added Roland. Karin's theory made sense - if the Keep was meant to suppress or defend against magical threats, the fact that two events - no, three - had popped up in rapid succession suggested that something was amiss. But they needed more information. "Captain, what exactly is the purpose of Engate's Keep, and how is it supposed to work against magical phenomena? And there is still the matter of Bahtan's Heartstone, which I believe you were investigating before we left the Keep... Are these all connected?"

He paused, remembering belatedly that newcomers were present and that none of them would have any idea of what he was talking about. "Actually, Sir, for the benefit of our recently-arrived comrades, perhaps it might be better if we could summarise what information we have, so that we may bring them up to speed. Our suffering sot over here could use some time to recover as well, seeing as how we're not going to get anything out of him in his current condition. I suppose that part is best left to Miss Blackiron - gods, we can't be calling you that all the time - and her expertise, though."

Zerithor laughed. "I know those dimwits in headquarters might lose their heads if they weren't fastened with ropes, but I keep this Keep in top shape. We swap out the core gem when there's still years left on its lifespan, I don't wait for one to burn out before ordering a replacement. And if it were the core gem, we would have had the alert system blaring at us right now. No, whatever is goingc on is being caused by something else. I had a theory that could explain the shambler, but there's nothing that could account for all three events. As for how the keep works... the simplest explanation that doesn't require knowledge of void theory is that it forces dark magic from the void into a single location, and burns it"

"Time?" Miss Blackiron said. She grabbed Zerithan again, and once again slapped him in the face.

"SON OF A WHORE!" Zerithan yelled out, roused from slumber. "Hells, that hurt - what, what happened? Where's the little bastard, I outta' tear his spine out."

Laeven stared at the chain golem. "The kind of force that could use you as a projectile, I hope I never meet."

"Feels bit tingly. But me not as squishy as you, so feeling might be bit different."

Suddenly, a dimensional rift or some such thing opened up under Laeven's feet. Even as he fell into it, the rift started closing around him, giving him barely enough clearance to get through and sealing shut before anyone could do anything.

Lolz.

A Heart of the Order, barely used, bounced on the spot of grass where he had been.

If, as slim as the odds are, this RP is ever revived, I'd be only too happy to devise another, non-drifter-type character.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
