The Homeless Shelter ((OPEN RP))

It was a quiet night at the shelter when he came.... a man dressed a futuristic Plague Doctor suit and belt full of vials and potions could be seen sneaking in, his dark form blending into the dark walls of the shelter's corridor like a phantom of the night, the green lenses of his mask glowing in the night like a toxic flame. Whatever he's here for... it can't be good...

Aradwen Kelebril slid her

Aradwen Kelebril slid her longbow into the quiver - which was far to short to hold it, and yet it did - and secured the cap. She refreshed the translation spell before entering the shelter, carrying the quiver and a haversack. She approached the desk and addressed the clerk. "Good evening. I need a place to stay and have no local money. Do you have any beds to spare?" Her accent was noticeable, but for most mortals it would be unidentifiable.

"Many thanks," replied

"Many thanks," replied Aradwen, as she followed the woman out of the lobby.

In her travels, Aradwen had

In her travels, Aradwen had come across many customs for dealing with the victims of disease, though they fall into three broad categories:
In those worlds where the healing arts are advanced enough, they cure the disease on the spot.
In those worlds somewhat less advanced, the victim is isolated, studied, and perhaps experimented upon to find a cure.
In those worlds whose inhabitants have the misfortune to be so ignorant that such methods would be useless, the victims might be carried to isolation.
But in all these cases, if the victim is moved, it is done with care to avoid injury, with only immediate danger being an excuse for excessive haste. One person, dragging a sick person along the ground, did not fit any of these pictures. And so, despite the attire, Aradwen gathered her will as she asked her hostess, "Do physicians wear such attire here?" If the answer was no, or if the "doctor" turned to flee, she would speak the word which would be untranslated, that would cause magical forces to bind him from further motion...

"No... they don't..." just

"No... they don't..." just then the doctor turned and exhaled a large cloud of toxic gas in your general direction

"Repnoshlod!" The hold person

"Repnoshlod!" The hold person spell was almost used anyway, it would be a shame to waste it as it was Aradwen's best chance to subdue the bandit (the tag would do until she found a better one) without injuring him. City guards were not very understanding about the use of deadly force; she didn't expect the ones here to be different. Meanwhile she reached into a pocket of her haversack and pulled out a folding silk fan. She opened it and flicked it, causing a stiff breeze to flow down the hall just before the toxic cloud reached her. She moved forward, following the now trailing edge of the cloud.

The Doctor remained held, though the poison dispenser in his mask kept on flowing as he hadn't had time to turn it off before being frozen in place

As the toxins continued to

As the toxins continued to pour from the mask and were blown down the hall, Aradwen reached out with her free hand to grab the beak and lifted up. If she could get the mask into one of the pockets of the haversack before the bandit broke himself loose from the hold, she was sure everyone would be much safer. Unless he needed the mask to live...

It takes a moment but the mask finally tears off revealing an inhuman face, something more akin to a mix between a human skull and a frog, like bloated, slimy flesh wrapped tightly around human bone, his face in an eternal, stretching smile, his lips incapable even touching each other any more, and as if by either timing or by pure rage he manages to snap backwards, a clear sound ringing from this action like a greasy chicken bone breaking in two, he lurched forward like some sort of goblin like creature, and with heavy breathing and slurred speech he screamed "GIVEF ME BACK MY FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!!"

"Not until you promise not to

"Not until you promise not to spread nasty vapors around with it," answered Aradwen, her decision punctuated by a cough from the unconscious man as the mask went into one of the pocket dimensions that comprised the haversack. She held her breath, then dived through the cloud to open the back door. Using the fan here pulled the last of the toxin out into the night, where hopefully it would disperse until it broke down. Perhaps it would actually start raining; that would help.

The cloud disperses after a short while, the doctor meanwhile turns all of his attention on you, his face while still stuck in that stretched smile of his, was clearly bulging from equal parts madness and anger "I'll MAKE you give it back!!!!" he reached both his arms out and from both his wrists he shoots a stream of acid toward you "I'LL MAKE YOU GIVE IT ALL BACK!!!"

Aradwen spun to catch the acid on her cloak, which gained many small holes as the waterproofing almost protected it from the acid. "Summon the guard!" She called out to the hostess as with a gesture she closed the door behind the strange bandit. She dived to take shelter behind a metal bin of some sort, and pulled out her bow.

The clerk has already started running down the hall to the nearest phone, the doctor on the other hand has already thrown a flask, aiming behind the dumpster "You cannot stop me.... I WIL CLEAN THIS WORLD OF FILTH!!!"

Seeing the flask arcing over the dumpster, Aradwen sprang back, stringing her bow and hoping that five feet would be far enough to avoid the contents. She was ready drawing her first arrow when it struck the pavement...

The mist begins growing out from behind the dumpster as the figure marches on silent in his fury, the only sound now emiting from his person was the sound of steady, heavy breathing

The arrow would look normal

She stepped to the side of the alley as the mist expanded, drawing aim on her target as she cleared its edge. The arrow would look normal to anyone without some sort of arcane sight, at least if they considered a chisel-point arrow to be normal. But the enchantments cast upon it ensured that it would pass through living flesh doing no harm beyond casting a sleeping spell that would put down an oliphaunt. The enchantments on the bow were fairly standard: Accuracy, Damage, and Range (not that her target was far enough away for that to matter). But the light that flared around the arrow as Aradwen loosed it was visible to all, as it drew a line in the night pointing straight at the strange bandit's - well, torso. She wasn't certain where he kept any particular organ...

"Cooward... jussst like him..

The arrow went through him, and at first he stumbles, but he keeps moving toward you, in a lurching fashion "Cooward... jussst like him.... weak..." he raised a flask of toxins in his hand and squeezed it until it shattered releasing even more green smoke everywhere, his form getting harder to see against the green glow of the encroaching mist "I'll show you...." his plodding boots ever moving forward

Aradwen used the fan again to blow the cloud away, revealing the bandit staggering towards her. She retreated enough to be certain of catching the mist from the flask by the metal box in the breeze from the fan, blowing it all down the alley. She paused long enough to cast another sleep spell, hoping the combined effect would put him down long enough for her to secure him and his poison flasks...

Banshees? No, this was an

Banshees? No, this was an artificial sound, and getting closer. But first things first. Two cooking pots came out of the haversack and went over the flasks to slow the spread of the poison. They'd need to be cleaned, later... A length of silken rope came out next, and Aradwen bound the bandit. The she started looking for the devices of artificers, such as the source of the acid he sprayed earlier. If she didn't find them and remove them before he woke up, well, silk ropes didn't do much better against acid than hemp did.

The lights seemed to be

The lights seemed to be coming from the same sources as the noise, and very close now. Aradwen picked up the arrow, stepped away the sleeping bandit, and laid it and the bow behind her. As the vehicles came into view blocking each end of the alley she was pulling the mask out of the haversack, putting it into her last cookpot and covering it quickly. The emblems on the vehicles made her fairly certain they were the local guards.

The cars roll in, and the police start pouring out. One of them, as far as you can tell is a dwarf, the dwarf looks at the unconscious man and then back to you. "Did uh.... did you do this?"

Aradwen nodded, keeping her

Aradwen nodded, keeping her hands still and in plain site. "Make him sleep and tie him up? Yes. The poisons are his work, and I hope I didn't damage him taking off the mask, but at the time I hoped it was his only source of poison. He has several other artifices in his coat, and possibly some more flasks. The cooking pots are mine, and as long as those vapors are coming out from under them, I recommend caution. There is also a victim of his in the shelter, who may need medical aid."
