"Sorry, not sorry, looked

"Sorry, not sorry, looked deep." Tobias glanced at the victims to make sure nothing was bleeding too much, read their auras for signs of fading. Tobias didn't keep any tags, or zip ties or anything, so he just stepped out of the way of the unconscious bodies. Tobias nodded. "I'm sure we can overlook a few mortal wounds inflicted prior to the "No kill" clause was in effect."
Tobias shrugged, he'd dealt with demons, and half is one, there's always a change of death or dismemberment. Tobias walked ahead again down the hall, sensing ahead as he went. He cloaked himself again as he walked, he really kind of enjoyed the look of surprise they had, sometimes.

Permafrost held up one finger

Permafrost held up one finger as he levered himself off the wall and began to follow Tobias. He instinctually kept to the shadows, keeping an eye on Tobias by way of infrared 'eddies', seeing where the air around him was warmed slightly by his body heat.

Putting yourself in another persons shoes emotionally is something that everyone has to experience eventually. It's part of learning to be a human being. Roleplayers do it for fun.

Crux resumed her position at

Crux resumed her position at Tobas' left, and was somewhat surprised to learn a moment later that his cloak was affecting her IR. So she kept an ear out and otherwise trusted him to not get too far ahead.

Tobias' body was a bit colder

Tobias' body was a bit colder since light was passing through him, and part of Tobias was enjoying this, distraction made him forget to let them notice him. Tobias glanced back, "Sorry." He whispered as, for his allies, the "somebody elses problem field" dropped, so they could notice the blurred air and wisps of black. "Sorry, got excited, so... worst case scenario, and we drop in on all nineteen in one room..." Tobias muttered back at them. "How confident are you guys that we can handle it?" Tobias raised his eyebrows, not realizing they couldn't see his facial expressions, just a human-shaped blur. The IR should show him, though the SEP Field might have interfered, even in IR he was hard to notice cause of his temperature being closer to the rooms, and the light bending as it passed through him.

With the drop of the S.E.P.

With the drop of the S.E.P. field - which would not have worked if Crux's helmet psi-shield hadn't already been told Tobias was a friendly - she could now make out the faint emissions of his body, a bit lower in temperature than she expected, but still above the background temperature. Her Death Sight also showed him as healthy.

"Depends on what we're facing, and why my long sword is glowing. If it's just a necromancer and his minions, easy peasy. But my sword didn't glow last time we fought a necromancer..."

Up ahead was another rune

Up ahead was another rune stone trap this one glowed white and soon the hall started to fill with a fog. They could hear movement from the other side of the fog as a group of mages prepare to attack. "Counting my Zombies there are ten of us. Tha necromancers should be prime targets. Take them out and any undead summons they have drop as well." Rotten said as he looked at the fog. "Seems like tha next group going to be prepared for us."

Tobias was looking out for

Tobias was looking out for traps as they went, and lunged for it first, aiming to drive his blade through the rune before it could detonate elsewhere. He did what he said he wouldn't, because he expected a big problem, and transformed to his demon form. His sister had enchanted his clothes to change for him when this happened, so when he became visible from lunging for the room he was basically just wearing a loin cloth and some skull strapped to his shoulder and waist with leather. The jacket and jeans disappeared.

He had five pairs of spikes running down his head, and the mask looked like it wrapped around from the back in a split skull, most of his hair covered. Other than the weapons, his metal had grown around his body and limbs, still colored like dull chipped obsidian, the skin around the plates thickened and turned red, he disappeared again a moment later. He hoped he could pull that trick off twice without them figuring out where he was. He didn't know how powerful the passive S.E.P. field really was, just that it worked when he stealthed. He moved cautiously into the fog and sensed around for the necromancers, expecting their robes to give them away, but there was usually a taint to certain magicks.

"Carmen, redesignate Tobias

"Carmen, redesignate Tobias as 'Friendly but Tricky'," Crux said softly, and the psionic shielding in her helmet would now block certain psychic tricks from Tobias, just in case he forgot to exclude her from his S.E.P. field again. Or if this demon-side of him got out of hand. She double checked the seals on her life-support, in case the fog was poisonous, and sprinted forward to the edge of the fog, and again activated her impellers, pulling in the air (and the fog suspended in it) from in front of her and sending it at high velocity back towards the open doors far behind them. If it was poisonous, hopefully it would be dispersed enough by distance and ionization to allow the mages tied up behind them to survive.

The rune stone fell thanks to

The rune stone fell thanks to Tobias however this seemed to alerted the mages that something was up as two fireballs came flying through the fog and exploding. This followed by the Necromancer's zombies the necormancer himself was standing in the back of the hoard like such type mages do. Now clearly seen thanks to Crux banishing the fog. Well except for Rotten he still was in front of his zombies when the fireballs sprayed flames around.

He grunted having been hit by the fireball blast then sent his own blast of dark magic in retaliation. "Get theem booyzes." Perhaps the fireball did more damage then he thought as he took note of his slurred speech. "those fiiree magges arue stroong."

Crux put the slurred speech

Crux put the slurred speech together with R.L.'s earlier warnings about what to do if he went down and why the necromancers were high priority targets... The fog cleared, she returned her gladius to its sheath as she moved up to him and placed a suddenly bare palm on his shoulder, feeding a bit of healing energy into the undead hero. Meanwhile her right arm pointed at the mages, and she sent a spray of laser lights at them, red and green and blue, not powerful enough to burn skin, but more than enough to overload their retinas...

Just like it always does time

Just like it always does time flows on. Days and stories fade and new days and adventures arise.

The Druid's Den open sign turns on. Finn looks out the window his fingers scratches the reddish brown hair if his beard as he looks out with gray eyes. His hand goes down to his pouch and he removes a small river stone with a rune marked on it. Looking down "Uruz, hmm a change is coming. Young man where ever you are I hope you are ready."

He turned back and headed deeper into his shop. On the walls were various herbs and spices, artifacts of different pagan types and styles. At the counter were where he kept the meditation crystals ranging from just simple quartz to diamonds all uncut but polished smooth for holding. Sitting down he pulls out a book and starts reading again. The book was about Russian and Eskimo rituals. "Defiantly Sharmastic... but where?"

Gabriel stuffed his work

Gabriel stuffed his work uniform into his backpack as he secured his locker, making sure to grab his keys and jam them into a side pocket. He didnt want to forget them again... like last time. Slinging the bag over one shoulder, he scrolled through the messages on his phone as he made his way out of the store, absent-mindedly mumbling a "See you tomorrow," to one of his coworkers, who answered in kind. There were worse places to work than SpeedMart... It wasnt exactly a glamorous job, and upward mobility wasnt exactly a thing there... But it WAS a job. It payed his rent, put food on the table. Kept him from having to move back in with his adopted parents.

"Hey, Gabe!" Somebody yelled out from behind him, forcing him out of his silent message scrolling as he wheeled around, recognizing the voice of his manager. Cassandra was a few pounds short of what most would call 'heavy,' and her tone had a tendency of shifting between sweetly condescending and angrily stern, depending on who she was talking to. Thankfully, Gabriel had managed to stay on her good side... She had a weakness for cheap paperback romance novels, and he'd been steadily supplying her for almost a year now, right out of the dumpster of the public library down on Factory Circle. I mean, if the library was just going to throw them away because nobody was reading them... might as well put them to good use, right? "You uh... You got something for me?" His manager asked, lowering her voice a bit as she stepped closer.

"For you, Cass?" Gabriel chuckled, rummaging around in his backpack for a few seconds. Finally he pulled out a slightly beat up paperback, the image of a shirtless man, wielding a large glowing blade, adorning the cover. A scantily clad maiden was draped across the guy as they rode a beautiful winged horse into battle, the title 'Hearts of War: The Seduction' emblazoned near the top. "Of course I have something," He grinned as he handed the book over. "What about..." He lowered his voice to match his manager's. "What about that shift next Wednesday? The one I requested off?"

Cassandra's eyes lit up as she stared down at the book, waving his question off with a quick, "Oh, sure. Sure. You've got the time off," as if she wasn't even paying attention anymore, her attention drawn completely to the synopsis on the back cover.

Gabriel just smirked triumphantly and turned to leave again, a bit more of a swagger in his steps now. A group of his friends had planned a whole trip out to the nearby lake that Wednesday, and up till now? He had no idea if he'd be able to go with them. "Oh yeah, Gabriel's got it," He muttered to himself with a decidedly self-pleased expression, popping his earbuds in as he queued up a playlist on his phone. As he got into his car and started it up, he tossed his backpack into the sideseat. He'd lived in Clarkestown most of his life. Knew the place like the back of his hand, and had explored most of its nooks and crannies as a kid with only a bike, and a moderately decent sense of direction.

The thought of his conversation on the Cape Chasers forum popped into his head as he pulled down 3rd Avenue, and he considered the other user's offer. The guy who called himself Norseman had said he owned a shop near here... Druids Den was it? He seemed to have some knowledge of magic. Or at least wards, like the one on the necklace Gabriel had been sent. He glanced at his backpack. He'd made sure to bring the piece of tribal-looking jewelry with him last night when he got on shift, just in case he decided to pass by the place on the way home, but now he... wasn't sure. Messing with mages was obviously dangerous. Pretty much everyone he'd asked about this had warned him about those who would try to use him... prey on him, even if his magical abilities were limited. They'd find a use. Another user on the forum had even said that there were spirits who would try to 'consume' him. Possess his body and eat his soul... A little over-dramatic description, he thought, but- what if it were true? He tapped on the steering wheel pensively as he neared the old Leland Warehouse, seeing the different shop windows passing by, still not certain what he would if he spotted this 'Druids Den.'

And then he did. There it was. The Druids Den. The cheery looking welcome sign blinking slowly. For a moment he considered just driving straight on by. Throwing out that stupid necklace and forgetting about all this stuff. But that grainy image of his mother popped into his head at that moment and something almost seemed to compel him to turn into one of the vacant parking spaces that lined the sides of the street. He parked the car, twisted the key back, and let the engine come to a stop as he stared out his windshield at the... rather vacant looking store. "What am I doing here?" He whispered to himself, sounding almost irritated with his own curiosity.

Finally, he opened the door and hopped out, shoving his keys back into his pockets as he walked toward the shop and... after a further moment of hesitation... stepped inside.

Detective Sergeant Guiseppi

Detective Sergeant Guiseppi Venerdì ("Joe" to his friends, and "Sergeant Venerdì" to anyone who makes too many "Dragnet" jokes) slipped the stylus back into the slot in his phone. "Thank you, Ms. Hudson. We'll let you know if anything develops." He gestured to his new partner and she followed him out to the car. "So, Detective Kowalski, what do you think?"

"I think someone crashed through their plate glass window just after they locked up, went straight to that amphora, picked it up, and walked out the way they came in. The perp went about twenty feet down the street, got into a vehicle, and left. I think that stop-and-rob might have caught the vehicle on their surveillance camera."

"I think someone's been reading too much Mercy Thompson." He shifted his stance as he looked down the street, and caught the glimmer of broken glass, presumably tracked by the perp. "But that does look like glass, and it stops there. Let's go see if they'll let us look at their tapes." He proceeded down the street, pausing to take samples, and also took a few pictures of the parking space where the trail ended before continuing across the street to the SpeedMart

"But you recognized the reference, Sergeant." There was a twinkle in Detective Kowalski's eye.

"Yeap. My wife eats that suburban fantasy right up. And I think you've got the makings of a good detective. So I'll let you talk to the manager, Heather." There was just a touch of emphasis on her first name, enough to accentuate that it was the first time he'd used it in her presence.

"Sure thing,... Joe."

Hearing the door chime he

Hearing the door chime he closed the book and slipped it under the counter. Looking up he saw the young fellow looking around. "Welcome to the Druid's Den. Anything I can help you with or are you just curious? I don't deal with any of the black magic items so don't ask. Other than that, if I don't have it I have contacts that might." Finn was dressed in what would be considered normal look jeans, a green button up shirt. There was no sign he was into magic except for a pouch tied to his belt that has runes on it.

Once inside more of the store could be seen near the herbs was a sign 'Potent, rare, or life threating herbs are kept in back if you don't know what you want chances are you shouldn't have it.' On the opposite wall were decorations from native American dream catchers to African masks. There were even bookshelves with books ranging from new age meditation to books about ancient pagan traditions. Again another sign 'Books of spells are available by request only'. The oddest part was some stools set up at the sales counter with another sign this one 'Fortune telling done on request'.
