The World of Skara Brae:

"No further death will be had but yours, foul demon!" Cried Mellara the Druid to the demonic being, her expression one of pure wrath "You thrice accursed being from the lower planes do not belong here! You evil abomination who brings corruption to all life you touch, I, Mellara shall bring forth your destruction and send you back to the pit from which you crawled out! In the name of the Oakfather I am the talon, the beak, the horn, the fang, the claw, the fire, the ice, the lightning, the will of nature that shall cast you out of his garden!"

Followed by such challenge, the roar of heaven's could be heard as yet another lightning bolt followed Mellara's instructions to strike at the demon.

"I am the Omega, the end of all things."
Kalan not having known Deimos for a very long time, they hadn't even exchanged words didn't cry out, instead he reached for two large knives and began to sneak up behind the Druegar, if he came close enough he would stab one knife to for right armpit and the other towards the side of the head

Aaron, despite his condition was able to get up on his two feet (even if it is with the assistance of a nearby table) and face the demon. "Hey demon...you said you wanted to find someone to process, maybe I can be your target? The stories say you always find the pure and naive ones most interesting to corrupt, and people keep on seeing me as naive. I just don't want you to hurt any of my friends..."


James was quick to follow Drek. The trail of the man has to wait, whatever it was down stairs

Mellara's lightning bolt hit the demon-possessed Thurten just as Kalan was close enough to strike. Thurten took most of the blast, but Kalan also got a bit of a shock. Not a large shock, just enough to make his hair stand on end and his finger tingle. Thurten, on the other hand, was well and goodly finished. What was left of the body disintegrated and collapsed into a pile of ash.

Seeing this, Mal said: "You fools, didn't you hear what the demon said? You're just feeding the demon by offering it violence. All you've succeeded in doing is destroying Thurten; The demon itself is still here somewhere, it's probably looking for a now host as we speak. Aaron kind of had the right idea, not offering it hatred or violence although offering yourself as a willing host is an extraordinarily bad idea. Instead, next time it comes at us in a new host body just be passive or fight defensively: Don't attack it, just defend against it's attacks. The more you attack it, the stronger the demon becomes. We need to find a way to banish the thing back to the lower planes, and permanently this time. I tried to do that back in the market square, but the spell failed. I guess that means I'm not strong enough to banish it back to hell. However... and I hesitate to suggest this... but if the Druid and I combine our prayers together, we might just be able to banish it permanently. What say you, Druid?"

Just then Drek arrived on the scene, followed closely by James. Drek, with a very concerned look on his face yelled: "What's going on here!? What did that to Deimos?"

"I am the Omega, the end of all things."
"A thing that cannot be killed?!" Kalan wondered quietly, in his mind this was bad, very bad. He had been thaught on how to kill the most efficently, or slowly if need for that arose, he was not however thaught on how to keep on the defensive that much. ''"I am a weapon... Not a shield... Fuck it..."

Kalan looked around hastily and sank down into a basic defensve position, his knives held out and crossed infront of him. He had seen the power the demon had behind his attacks and such he knew he could not block, parrying was a slight chance that it might succeed, but dodging it all togheter is most definetively the best option.

Then he heard his masters voice and the boy answered " A demon, master. It's body is destroyed but according to the Drow it's still around here somewhere."

Mellara tried to calm and quell the fury within her like a gentle rain might quell a raging fire "I understand, priestess. In wishing this thing banished to where it came from... I can certainly join you in such a prayer"

Sam for her part grasped her sword a bit tighter in her hand. She didn't know exactly how not fighting would help them defeat a foe... but still she nodded her head. Should the thing come again she would not strike at it but try to protect those around her. She gently touched the ring resting on her pocked for courage and then nodded her head in understanding once again.

James looked at Deimos. He was pissed at what happened to a former comrade but he had to keep his anger under control. Thurten was the one possessed so he readied his glaive towards the now demonic dwarf.

"Let me help..." said Aaron, "I know my powers don't come from any gods or spirits but they're still divine..."

Drek said: "A demon, you say?"

Mal said: "Aye, and I believe it was the same one we fought back in the market square. It had the same... feel."

Drek then said: "So, you intend to banish it back to hell? Very well, be quick about it before it kills someone else."

Mal said to Aaron: "Are you sure you're up to the task, boy? You look exhausted."

Mellara for her part was already hard at work, taking from inside her cloak a sprig of mistletoe to use as a focus in her prayers to nature and the Oakfather.

"We need all the energy we can Mal" said Aaron, "We can worry about my fatigue later..."

Cecilia crawled back in through the same window she'd been thrown out and said: "I am not a cleric, but I too shall add my prayers to yours and pray that God banish this demon back to hell."

Mal nodded and said: "Alright then." Mal took out her swords and began to dance and sing to her goddess, beseeching her to banish the demon in their midst back to whence it came.

Cecilia began to sing a different song, and as she did, her face and hair began to shine with a golden light. The flame on her sword seemed to grown in intensity.

Just then, Zelph woke up with a jolt and rose to his feet. His eyes were blazing red, and his skin was turning dark. He said, in a voice not his own: "No, stop it... stop praying... I'm not ready yet.... can't go back now... need to harvest more souls."

Surprised, Drek just looked at Zelph oddly and said: "Zelph!? You in there, buddy?"

Mellara continued her fervent prayers to the Oakfather.

Sam however, was not so calm at the moment. Seeing Zelph wake up with blazing red eyes was exactly the kind of thing she didn't want to happen "No! Zelph! Please, get out of Zelph!" she said, quickly closing the distance towards him.

Aaron got distracted by Zelph's cries. He was about to copy Sam, it was only natural due to his need to save some, which is only heightened by the person needing saving being someone he knew.

Despite seeing what has happening to a former comrade, James remained calm. He just need to pass it onto someone who needs it right now. "Hey Aaron, you're supposed to help with the prayers! Don't let the personal feelings get the best of you and do what needs to be done!"

However, Aaron couldn't focus, he needed to know if Zelph would be okay first so he focused on helping Sam. It was a bit tricky moving as fatigue was effecting his movements but he still manage to run at a somewhat decent rate.

As Sam approached Zelph, the red light in Zelph's eyes seemed to fade and Zelph said: "I... I feel strange..."

Just then, Mal's, Mellara's, Aaron's and Cecilia's prayers seemed to be answered as a portal opened in mid-air just above Zelph and a black smokey substance was sucked out of Zelph and into the portal, accompanied by a horrible shrieking and wailing sound. A voice could be heard saying: "No! Not now... so close... can't go back... Noooooooooo...." The voice faded out and the portal closed as Zelph fell down.

Mellara grinned in victory as she saw the dark smoke of the demon disappear through the portal. It seemed that no matter their beliefs, everyone here was joined in their hate of demons even if the reasons varied a little from person to person.

Sam however could not relax just yet. She crossed the remaining distance between herself and Zelph and knelt at his side, trying to shake him away "Zelph! Zelph! Wake up, please!"

"Ah... Zelph... You're in the inn... in an inn... Anyway... you're safe now Zelph. Everything is alright" said Sam, incredibly relieved to see him wake up and without those nasty red eyes.

Zelph sat up and looked around. He said: "How did I get here? Last I remember, I was in Suldeneselar City, and there was a fight with some dark elves. I was captured... and they cast some sort of spell on me... and then I found myself here."

Drek said: "Ah, I think I can explain. When Eruantian was fighting Lloth back in the market square, Lloth mentioned that she had been using Zelph as a her eyes and ears to spy on me so she could be notified when Eruantian returned. She must have surmised that if and when Eurantian returned to this world, one of the first things he would do is try and find me. This would explain Zelph's strange behaviour when we rescued those merchant seamen from the Illithids: His true personality must have been fighting Lloth's control, causing him to behave as if he had a split personality. Since his true personality was submerged all that time, he doesn't remember anything after Lloth took control of him."

Mal said: "That's entirely possible. There is a spell called Dominate Person that allows the caster to use a victim as a puppet that the caster can see and hear through. If Lloth had a sufficiently powerful version of that spell, then in theory she could have sustained it indefinitely and used it over vast distances. But that would mean she was on the surface long before Zelph even met you."

Orren said: "Assuming you are correct, then why is his skin no longer blue?"

Mal said: "It must be because his skin is normally his current colour but for some reason the domination spell turned his skin blue. When Lloth was removed from this world and trapped inside the ring, the spell was broken and his skin turned back to it's normal colour. I don't understand why he disappeared during the fight with the dragon and then reappeared later on, though."

Zelph looked scared and said: "Dragon!? What dragon? And who's this Lloth you're talking about? And who are you people anyways? I want some answers, dam it!"

"We are friends, Zelph" said Sam simply, taking his hand and looking at him in the eyes... hoping her words would calm him down a little. Then she looked back at Drek and Mal and asked "So... is there no way to make him remember us? He won't remember us meeting? Traveling together?"

"In my studies of the wild I have never encountered such a problem... I can pray to my God for guidance, but it might be beyond the realm of my magic to cure" said Mellara with an apologetic look on her face.

Zelph stood up and said: "This is too weird. I'm getting out of here.... wherever here is." He started walking towards the front door.

Nobody tried to stop Zelph, so he simply left. Then Drek said: "Well, that was unfortunate. But at least Zelph is alive and well. That's more than can be said for Deimos. It now falls to us to provide him with a funeral. Orren, take Edvin upstairs in put him in a bed. The rest of us shall take Deimos out past the walls and bury him.

Orren said: "Aye."

Mellara nods her head as she approaches to help them take the body of the fallen man outside... though when she steps close to Sam she touched her shoulder and said "Perhaps you should go follow that elven man... he should be mighty confused. Probably not the best time to wander alone'

Sam for her part nodded her head and moved to pursue him.

Aaron, finally doing his part, collapsed from the fatigue. James was quick to catch the boy.

"Geez, you keep pushing yourself don't you" James commented to himself." The werewolf than turned to Drek and said "It looks like Aaron will need to be sleeping with Edvin."
