Hag Battle 4

Destiny – Mount Hotenow 5 – Hag Battle 4

While the battle rages around him, Almego fights for his life…within his mind and body! On his knees inside the forcecage, the young Olvander wages war with himself…and quickly comes out victorious.
Though disorientated and aching Almego feels in control of himself again. He looks around to see how much time he has cost himself. Around him the battle rages and the blood wages of the crows start to pay their grisly dividends. The Storm Sisters have moved past him and are about to engage his companions. Damn!

Turning, he sees Alison unscathed and stalking one of the murderous stone trolls. With the powers of The Statue of Kane he wonders about her new loyalties and how much this will get in the way of his plan. I will deal with it when the time comes...
"When the Time Comes" a strange voices whispers in his head followed by a vision of the Hand of Time striking Midnight. Again he wonders to himself about the greatest power of the artifact. I should be finding out soon enough I'm sure...
Shaking the vision away he brings his attention back to the battle. My friends need me! Stop daydreaming and kick it into a gallop you dolt!

Almego attempts to draw upon on the power that gives life to magic in Faerun rather than the Shadow Weave which battles to extinguish it. He hasn't use the pure power of the Weave since that fated day in Thornhold where he gave his soul to The Shadow and he wonders if he even can anymore, but he tries.

He starts chanting the words to one of his spells…when he feels a tearing in the weave as if…a portal is opening. He feels a dark presence and turns to try and find its source.
Mount Hotenow suddenly belches dark smoke and ash sending the ravens in the trees into flight, the animals of the forest scampering for cover – as a being of shadow begins to take shape in the air…
“Valkur save us! What have they unleashed upon us?”

Nearby, ST1 destroys the last of the elves, including Celadon, their leader. The vicious beast looks around for other prey as it rips the dead elf apart, stuffing bloody chunk in its black maw.

G1 flies back down the mountain and tears into one of the Aurilians protecting Alison, killing the young adept easily, while the yeti and ST2 beat and claw each other; but the yeti seems to be getting the worst of it.
And just as Alison is about to unleash another frosty spell upon the troll, she hears Amra scream behind her.
She turns to find Amra on her knees, weak as water. The hag has her long fingers in the druid’s hair, holding her head up, cackling maniacally. Samson rushes the hag, clawing her viciously, but the tiger’s attacks do little damage against the hag’s thick hide.
“She’s mine!” Alison says, covered in bluish ice. She pushes her hand toward Oleeda and an arctic spray slams into her…and into Amra and Samson, leaving the great snow tiger lifeless in the snow. (D18)
Oleeda screeches and staggers backward…and then grins.

Little Wren moves so quickly, that Raynal and Graham hardly have time to turn to see her coming. She flings her greasy black hair back from her face, revealing her horrific visage. Raynal staggers backward but is not overly impressed; Graham on the other hand, screams in terror and slumps to the snow, too weak to stand.
Wren is on him in a heartbeat, picking him up in her amazingly strong hands, and flinging him toward…the eating stone troll.
“There my pet – another morsel for you!” she cackles before turning back to Raynal.

Mirko grins as he turns to meet the oncoming hag. His boots speed him toward the confrontation. “Come on then!” he cries as a bestial roar bursts from his chest. “GRRRAAAAAHHHH!”
The warcry staggers B’Hara and Mirko charges in swinging the Burning Blade with all his might. His overzealous attack actually works against him however, as he completely misses the hag once, twice! (OOC: Dude, I rolled a “1” and a “5” – even with his bonuses, he still missed - sorry!)
B’Hara ducks under the heavy mace and rakes Mirko across the stomach as the warrior passes her, but the power of the Burning Blade protects him from the worst of the damage (D3).
Growling in frustration, B’Hara sweeps her black staff through the air in front of her, laying down a greenish killing fog that washes over Barnes, Dreys, and the charging Quaggoth, dropping them like flies!
As the Quaggoth and the Aurilian fall to the ground to die, Dreys wades through the cloud, barely affected, but Barnes looks sick, even though he manages to stay on his feet
