You feel as if you might crumble to nothing, yet you endure this odd and unpleasant sensation. It leaves you feeling unpleasant but nothing else.

Go.

Is that staff just an affectation or is it needed to channel the guardian's power? Alicia isn't sure but she's content to try more than simple violence here given he endured her initial attack well enough. So her giant hand reaches out to pluck the staff from his grasp!

You snatch the staff away with one deft move. It is a plain wooden stick as far as you can tell, but now it's your plain wooden stick.

Got it. Anything else this turn?

Tossing the staff behind her gigantic body so it's out of reach, Alicia swiftly restores her prescient spell!

Quickened many moments of prescience.

That done, she bolsters her magical capabilities with Seira's handy spell!

Quick cast Seira's Arcane Thesis.

Done now.

Init is Alicia (Supreme Init) > Jessica (38) > Queen (36) > Old Man (35) > Jessica (25)

With this chance, the old man unmoved, Jessica strikes with her full wrath, rapier a blur.

Blow after blow lands - and the creature shifts. You're suddenly 70ft away from it, just at the entrance to this arena. The old man is now a beautiful woman of ice and snow. A moment of memories of days past with Seira flares under her cold gaze.

"Continue," The Guardian's voice, "Continue to prove yourself worthy of existing."

Init is now Alicia (Supreme Init) > Jessica (38) > Queen (36) > Jessica (25)

Queen is up.


Queen holds her position, her song becoming one of learning, of music and warmth. Summer's warmth, trees ablossom as tiny, leafy blossoms gather over all of you.

Song of Nature's Embrace, party is immune to cold now.

Queen is up.


The Guardian gestures as you hear a loud, sharp sound behind you. A glance shows that a whirling maw of hungry, black nothingness is now behind you, back the way you came. It reminds you of an Eye of Shar, of one of the Blackballs that consume everything it touches. The winds blow intensely and heavily, screaming winter's invectives.

Alicia, go.

To clarify, was the blackball summoned by the queen and is on our side?

Yes. The Guardian is 70ft away from you, you're back at the entrance to here. The hungry nonthingness is 20ft away from you, straight back behind you. So it's:

Guardian----70ft-----Heroes--(20ft)--Hungry Nothingness.

Isn't Queen next to us?

Are you using Queen to refer to both our lillend pal and the icy woman?

No, just a really stupid typo that's fixed.

Okay, but to go back to my original question - what side is the hungry nothingness on? The description made it sound like Queen summoned it.

Fixed THAT typo, too.

This reminds me of a certain frostwind virago, who in turn always felt like a queen to me. My brain get confuzzled.

"Jessica I'm making a path for you," Alicia says, compressing space between her sister and the frost-maiden while she slashes out with her sword to strike both of them at once!

free action to space compress between Jessica and the guardian's back. This also puts the guardian in my melee reach so whirlwind attack go.

DC 44 fort or -10 penalty to armour and natural armour.

Will use last swift on seeing result of this. +83 fort with mettle and can't fail on a one if any saves are prompted from hitting the ball.

Only the first part of your action goes through.

The moment you twist space, you feel it. Another force twisting space, another one changing it. With a sharp, electric jerk space is not twisted either way - it's now a simple 70ft to the Guardian.

"Space manipulation," Jessica calls, "Trying to trap us into oblivion!"

Continue with the rest of your turn from there, revise as needed due to interruption.

Okay, that does change things. Will full attack the sphere instead.

Alicia tuts at that. "Fine, I'll deal with the orb first then," she says, turning fully to engage the threat at their rear and rending it apart into nothing with enchanted blade and divine all-consuming acid!

If the first 2 attacks miss i'll use many moments of prescience for +30 on the next 4 of them
