"Feelers... Scouts and sneakers ... Looking for confirmation and location of folks we are about to kill. "
Elektra grins, looking out over the landscape

"Good evening, Captain." The elf greets Gerhardt. "I know we have movement but I cannot tell you where." She glances to him. "What I can tell you is I think I may know whom we are dealing with...but I'll hold my tongue until we know for certain."

In the far off distance, just beyond the reach of a the eye, stood a figure clad in crimson and violet robes and a Steel Mask...

The elven woman would fall silent upon seeing the figure in the Steel Mask. Her expression hardens slightly and those beside her may sense a tension in her that they didn't see a moment before.

Raises a brow slightly at Lia's change before quietly speaking.

Tired of waiting, the Ruathen just decides to go get the damn Hounds. To hell with orders!

The man hurries down the tower and through the halls. When he gets outside he heads towards the Hounds fort by way of the plains.

If followed, the man would cloak himself in a spell to help him blend in better with his surroundings and duck into thick brush to lose the tail. ((mundane hips, hide 36, ms 24 ))

A masked individual cloaked in shadows continued to watch the defenses of the keep go into alert. Yet he did move or signal his companions. He watched the man leave the keep and head toward the fields causing him to smirk. 'Everything is going according to plan' he thought to himself.

To the north smoke is seen rising in the brush, then the licking of flames as a fire grew.

Alasha'Ur seen nor heard any movement at the west edge of the Misty Falls, what little she seen for tracks or displaced brush lead to no intruder.. at least that she could see.

Unexpectedly, Elektra casts meteor storm beyond the walls , but above the ground, lighting up the landscape and causing those with night vision to endure the brilliant flashes to their eyes. Just as fast , she casts again to the east. The intent is both to expose enemy as well as disrupt their ability to see in the dark.

Seeing the balls of fire falling from the sky, Jaerlsvir picks up the pace and rushes silently through the brush to the forts.

A spell of such size and fire effect in the night was easy to notice by those who lurk in the dark woods. Attracted by the hunger for power, a curious female shyly reveals her presence on the land of Misty Falls, moving with light steps between trees and bushes, trying to figure out what happened. With her eyes glowing gently green in the dark, the night would not blind her. She did not arrive magically unprepared. To inspect the force that hit the land hard, Ivy would approach towards the impact spots. I cannot help but wonder who would dare to do such a thing at this place? Ivy takes her hand mirror and looks at the reflection of herself inside it, that to Ivy's senses displays as horrific version of herself. The reflection would address to Ivy, and would grant her ability to sense any spirits or shadows. The power we seek is not here, not even near enough to what is required for the ritual. But it is a start. Someone is either incredibly foolish or powerful enough to challenge Elektra and her domain. Aid her and you may be able to harvest a portion from her foe for what we require. Ivy nods with a smile to her reflection in the mirror. It shall be done. Ivy places her hand mirror away and approaches towards the walls to offer her help. Ivy is fully warded.

The sudden flash of light causes her to grimace and reflexively shut her eyes against the flare. She attempts to blink away some annoying spots in her periphery as her eyes adjust to the sudden change in the light level. It doesn't take long, however, for her vision to return to peak efficiency.

"This place is a vithing circus..." she thinks to herself.

As Elektra prepared the spells, Sylira said in an urgent voice that wouldn't carry very far "Close your eyes. Big light coming." She would follow the advice herself...once the initial flare wore off the priestess opened her eyes and said to the people in the nearby towers "Open your eyes...look for enemies creeping about again! Call out locations!"

((Lira's Scan is crap, so I doubt she'd see anything. Maybe WR can tell us what the guards' chances of spotting an enemy is? How about Lia and Gerhardt and others on the towers?))

Should Jaerlsvir move through the plains in the right direction, he may encounter the crimson clad figure.

Fully warded, the Steel Mask would simply laugh at the runner, snap his fingers and meld into etherealness.

With the area lit up for a short time, Gerhardt would scan the area from his position on the roof.

The light from the swarm brightens the area. The crouched masked man covers his eyes at the flashes then looks in the direction of where he seen the small female hide herself. After the spell ended he removed himself from his shroud and signaled with a series of swift signals [DS] Have what required. Extract Krag.

Little did he know in removing himself from the darkness he became visible to not only his nearby ally but the hidden scout Alasha who was just a few feet away. However the others would see nothing due to the brush cover and distance. Turning the man moved to stealth away to the west..

In the north some kind of catalyst was used to fuel the fire even more, soon turning it into a roaring inferno.

Staying in her cozy cloak of shadows as best as she could, Felynshura scurried off to the west as well. Maintaining a rather quick pace, even while stealthed and moving through the brush, she easily keeps up with her companion.

Alasha 'Ur Kassalem, a seething boil of hate, vengeance and murderous intent, kept in a lean body of well practiced and agile moves. ( Dex 28 "+9" , Str 16 , Int  22  before buffs of Cat's Grace and Fox's Cunning )  . . . Aches for the joy of killing. It has been over a day since she practiced on a living being, and she craves.  She normally would struggle between orders given , and her own internal drive.. . . but this. .was more than the strongest mind could resist.
  (( classes of Scout, Assassin, Dread Commando  apply here for this , as well as Blind Fight , Perfect two weapon Fighting, Two weapon Defense, Mobility, Dark Vision, Death attack 5d6 , Sneak attack 5d6, Superior Initiative,  Evasion, Improved Flanking, Improved Uncanny Dodge, Skirmish AC bonus))
An enemy suddenly appearing to her in such moment was just too too much to not react. From her hiding position ( HIPS from level 10 Assassin ), she strikes !
   one hand flies forth with a short sword ( +1 and 1d4 electric ) towards the base of the neck , no matter which way the target faces, initially ramming the point in, then her body weight is used to "fall past" the target, ripping the blade through flesh and vital structures as she goes. **
  The second hand, as she falls, strikes for a thigh, preferably high near the body junction , with a Kukri ( +2) ^^

**   the first weapon, if it hits as intended, severs any and many of the following : Ascending caraotid artery ( rapid blood fountain ) , Brachial Plexus nerve tree ( that arm is paralysed ), strap muscle series ( unable to turn head, or look down ), Trachia below larynx ( voice box which now has little air pressure to work ), Vagus nerve ( which slows heart, and if cut, the heart beats uncontrolled, possible leading to heart attack ) ,   and if a critical strike were to happen. .. Spinal damage ( lessor most likely ) but the electric shock of the weapon could easily stun the spinal nerves, leading to body paralysis.  (( this is not even counting Death Attack and Sneak attack effects ))
^^   The second weapon is intended to hit either Femoral Artery ( bleeder you cant stop in time ) - target facing attack mostly   - , and or -  Lumbar Plexus of nerves ( ability to use the leg on that side ) -target facing away mostly.

 Alasha studies anatomy of every species that she can, and often.

The masked black robed priest just keeps watching from a distance propped up against a tree.

Seeing her companion taken down so swiftly and brutally, Felyn pauses for but a short moment. "Should I intervene? No. It would be my death. I need to keep moving." A split-second of indecision and then she continues toward the extraction point. "You will be a avenged, brother. That elg'caress will feel my blade on her throat one day.

[D] "Shadows embrace you, Dusk..." she whispers to herself as she darts through the trees and further into the darkness.

(( i was waiting to see if the DM allowed the assassin strikes to be accurate. But ok , we go !))

Alasha 'Ur , confident the mark has been neutralized, streaks off on foot, leaving what ever quivering bloody mess there was , behind for others to deal with.
As she goes, one hand draws an arrow,while the other pulls out one of her oil pouches ( Warrior of Darkness) and slips the oil on the arrow , soon to burst into flame as it contacts air.
Letting the near empty pouch fall from her grasp, she lifts her bow, as she passes through the brush quickly.
Mid stride , she looses the flaming arrow into the sky towards the general direction of the Keep.
The signal for enemy contact has been made for all to see.

Ivy glances at Lira and listens to what she says. Quickly turning away from the tower towards the night, Ivy's eyes begin to scan the area before her with 60 spot mod, true seeing and detect spirits active for what she requires no eyes to sense shadows nearby, searching for the mentioned enemy, and slowly following after those that she can see moving in towards unknown enemy.

Alasha's attack was swift. The masked figure let out a gurgle before slumping to the ground, eyes wide open he reached for his wound. Looking in confusion he caught a glimps of his attacker who was already rushing off into the brush. At first pain is all he could feel, though as the last minutes of his life became aparent he felt hatred as the cold darkness took him.. Dusk was no more.

To the north his ally having completed his task moved with haste to his extraction point, Ivy might catch glimpse of him beyond the flames far in the distance. The fires that he set continued to grow with the help of his catalysts. Flames reached high into the air, above the trees they were consuming.. for all in the surrounding areas to see.

Not knowing what this catalyst is and how to stop it from harming the nature, Ivy focuses at the figure she detected in the distance. All she needed is line of sight to perform a long range spell with sylvan whispers that contain a very small portion of demonic dialect, and with hand movement to point towards the target, which would at same time allow others to see that she spotted an enemy, and which direction is she pointing towards.

Pain of the trees grows the power I call
Beautiful and fierce flora raise above the all
Spread your reaches to create a wall
Wrap around the coward, make him fall!


During the chat her eyes would glow green hostility towards the figure that is trying to reach extraction point. Vines break through earth around and beneath her target, growing strong and move with attempt to wrap around its prey to stop it from escaping. Ivy watches from the distance to see if her spell will success, her eyes locked on the target as she controls the movement of the plants with her eyes.

Elektra watches the fires raging out in the woods.
She knows her spell could not have caused this much.
" Advisors ! Speak freely... The enemy is burning off the cover they could use to hide behind ... They better not send me a bill for helping us that way ( smirks ) ... Do they expect us to run out there , leaving our walls , to put the fire out???
Might we gather every Druid there is now ? Seems this enemy wants a real challenge, if they keep pushing folks to join our side ...
What am I missing ???"

The Mage had moved
closer to the flames- Fully Warded, even the speed of his steps magically increased.

His Steel Mask glittered in the moon light, crimson robes shifted as his chest heaved in anger - Though, he was here to simply support.

If Ivys spell would, somehow, catch the fleet footed dark-elf, he would (from a distance) cast a powerful dispel. His hands moved in a snake like motion, quickly afterwards pulling his body back into the ethereal plane.

Gerhardt moves closer to Elektra and speaks to her in calm and confident manner.

"Hard to say what their intentions are but.. perhaps they are trying to gather all their enemies to a single point. Multiple birds, one stone or they wish our allies to vacate their positions for the real attack."

Gerhardt scans the area a moment before turning back to her.

"I will take up position on the wall by the gate, with the men. Unless you order otherwise."

"Follow the wisdom of war, Captain. The men do need you, so certainly, be with them, And commend them as you see fit. I will be watching from the tower and will share information as we perceive , and recieve.
They could be simply gaging our reactions so they know how to better form their strategy... That is what I would do. Make sure the long Bowman are prepared to fire for air assault, as soon as there's enough light to see.
Remind the men : dispel magic wands can reduce the enemy to simple targets, magic resistance scrolls can keep us strong. There may yet be a few surprises for both sides."
