@Wata @Casavay (WBSA) Serpent’s artificial companion would respond to the slaps against the helmet immediately. “You know just asking for what you need is a lot more polite than hitting yourself.” The feminine voice within Serpent's helmet had the usual tone of mild irritation when it speaked. “It says something of ‘The Demon’s eyes are always on you’, probably something of a reminder to the locals to not cross them in anyway. This gang is responsible for more than a few massacres within the slums, Mundane Law Enforcement has cracked down on their activity significantly but they are dug in very deeply around this region. Some officials have speculated it wouldn’t take anything less than military like operations to finally get rid of them. Naturally sending in thousands of heavily armed police officers into areas where there is also a large civilian population to battle with heavily armed gangsters isn’t prefered so Law Enforcement has been looking into at least containing them.” As the AI spoke about the subject a map showing activity and various news reports and documents came up on Serpent’s HUD, unfortunately Aura would be unable to see the information. @GobMaw_HellSmasha The Crimson Monstrosity’s travel would not be impeded by anything else the rest of the way to the manor. The Craveloft woman would go her own way and Nightmare was out of the house on some sort of errand. As such the creature was free to do as it wished in the manor with its various employees and resources at its disposal, provided it asks. Perhaps someone could know something about the Warlock that he seeked? @Wincent (Mystic) @Vulpas Mystic’s attempt at chaining the strange woman riding on a griffin would not go as planned as the chains would not find their mark. She could distinctly feel the interference of a power much greater than hers, divine intervention though she could not be sure exactly what had stepped in . Meanwhile Morph simply raised an eyebrow at what Mystic said but offered no words, simply sighing in a manner that made it clear he was beginning to get used to the strangeness of dealing with this woman. “Well first of all thank you for securing Corgins, I certain he did not make the task particularly easy. Second we have reports of green fire that cannot be put out erupting in different parts of the city. Given your abilities I figured you might be a good candidate to solve the issue.” If Mystic would look inside after failing to catch the fleeing valkyrie she could see Morph was bringing up a map for her to see that showed the locations of the fires that have been reported. Meanwhile in the air the Valkyrie could feel the sun’s rays warm and calm her as her deity seemed to extend a hand to assist her in her situation. The sun would temporarily grow brighter and cause the WBSA agents below to shield their eyes less they go blind from the intense light. This was her chance to escape. @Wincent (Hallow) @The_Raven Hallow and her men would quickly make their way out of the building with a haste that easily showed they were pretty much done with whatever the hell was going on here. Though upon opening the door it is revealed that their activities had not gone unnoticed. A fire truck was parked outside with several firefighters in specialized suits on standby to enter the building which must have been obviously on fire by this point. Though these suited up firemen weren’t attempting to enter the building and instead were just standing there which was strange up until the fire captain(who wore a distinct suit to identify his rank easily) was speaking to a bald man dressed in WBSA issue body armor. The firefighters looked towards the figures that had just emerged from the building. Ben and the gang members stared at them and for a moment there was a shocked silence between the two groups who weren’t expecting one another. Both were unsure what to do until the WBSA agent reached a hand out towards them. At first the gesture seemed to do nothing but then the gang members along with Hallow began to be short of breath and found standing seemed to be a lot more difficult than it should be. Ben, realizing the wbsa agent was doing something fired off a burst from his weapon and began running, pulling another of the gang members by the arm they made a run for it. Though now the WBSA agent and the firemen who looked inside and saw the fire within, luckily Ryshan was somewhat concealed by the flames. Seemingly as if luck was finally turning in her favor the curse was fading as well. The shadows were becoming weaker, their attacks slowing to the point that dodging was something she could do almost subconsciously. @Grall_Stonefist Taking a brief rest within the abandoned distribution center Daniel would hear a disturbance nearby at a doorway. If he investigated he would find the homeless man from earlier was walking up from the same way he had entered. “Hello.” He said, his tone of voice sounding drastically more sane than before as well as his eyes seemed to be focused and serious where before they were clouded and clearly somewhere else. “Daniel Stern, I have something for you.” The man approached Daniel as he reached into his coat pocket and grabbed a metallic case. Upon Daniel taking the case the man walked away offering no explanation when Daniel blinked the man was completely gone. Left with nothing else to do he could examine the case and notice that it had the heraldry of the Neo North Sea Empire on the top. He wouldn’t find a latch or anything to open it but upon grazing the heraldry the box would click and open to reveal two things. An envelope and a usb, of he looked around he would notice there was a terminal over in an empty office. @SpaceHulk With the two Ukranians waiting in agitated patience they would soon find the source of the various noises to resemble what is referred to as a technical. Technical being the term used to describe an improved light fighting vehicle or in this case a pick up truck carrying a prominent crisis era machine gun mounted on an improvised stand on the back of the cab. The bed of the pick up was loaded with both assorted loot like television screens, furniture, and cardboard boxes presumably filled with smaller items. Also in back sat several people, all with their faces covered by masks of different animal heads. A strange sight but nothing compared to the two even stranger creatures observing them. They could both calculate it would be a quick fight if they chose to engage them but perhaps this groups had information two of them could use?
