      [New Stuff]

          [Sepes 29th, 1634TH]
          [Location: City of Samma, Donara]

          [Time: 1:49:01 am - Samma city, Donara]

          [Military Center - Phase 1 - 1:49:01 am]

            Z'leyra casts her spell to inflict in-fighting of the

            Raban swings at the nearest ape but fails to make an

            Unali moves toward the nearest thief and swings slicing
          a deep wound in his left hand and missing with the other

            Ape #1 swings his club and hits Raban doing 8 points of
          damage and forcing him back toward the wall.

            Ape #2 charges Z'leyra.  The Ape leaps and grapples
          the Shaman.  She tries to use her staff to parry but the
          ape sinks his fangs in her left arm doing 6 points of damage.

            Z'leyra swings her staff at the ape and bashes him away
          but only gives him 3 points of damage.

            The humans move but the spell from Z'leyra affects them.
          They move toward each other.  Two fight each other wounding
          each other.  The other two gang up on the last one.  The
          third ganged up on is killed by a sudden slash to his

            But from the room the thieves came from a gloves hand
          is seen.  The hand belongs to Thon a man recruited for
          this mission in hopes for a better life.  The winged one
          promised to make him smarter.  So the others would not
          tease him.  They called him ditch digger and horse dung
          hauler.  But today he will prove himself worthy.  The
          winged demon said if the group is attacked to slide the
          box toward the enemy.   Then simply open the box.

            Then the Mighty they will call him.  Thon the Wise.
          The thief slides the flimsy box into the hall and opens
          it.  The magical device in the box springs out three
          ball objects they go flying in opposite directions.  These
          small magical objects explode in light and a sonic wave
          causing a concussion wave to hit anything within 30 feet
          of the objects   While not directed magic they can't be
          swayed by magic defense.  They are essentially magical
          grenades that do physical damage.  The waves hit each
          person forcing them toward the walls.

            Z'leyra is knocked against the wall but her magical
          helm protects her from the blow. The ape over Z'leyra
          is knocked out but his bulk helps to take the effect.

            Unzli is slammed forward onto her knees and then
          toward the ground on her face.

            Raban with his bulk feels the damage but is not
          knocked in any direction.  Neither is the ape that
          is nearby.

            But then at the same time the magical device sets
          off the second trap.  It ignites a concentrated
          bag of pure magical naptha.  This material is rare
          and only found in the upper world.  The resulting
          explosion sends a fire ball that engulfs the entire
          hallway west and east.

            Unali can feel the back side of her burning under
          the heat of the fire ball.  Skin blister and shred
          under the heavy damage.

            Z'leyra is slammed west down the hall with the heat
          of the fire.    She is tossed back and forth losing
          her staff and her helmet almost falls off.  Her armor
          saves most of the damage but she takes 21 points of
          damage from the fire.

            The first ape is engulfed by the fire and screams
          as his hair vanishes from the fire.  The ape roars
          in pain and collapses.

            The second ape takes less damage but is slammed
          down the hall.  Raban is staggered and walk-crushed
          toward the wall.  His leathers catch on fire and he
          slowly begins to be a human torch.

            Thon the mighty one is shocked in that split second
          the explosion hits him and kills him.

            But the explosion hits the ceiling.  With Fremea
          and Etain only 10 feet away to the right the wave
          shakes the fire.  This causes Etain to slip and the
          dagger move toward his heart.  As the rumble dies
          down he breathes his final gasp of shocked air.

            Fremea only feels the shake of the explosion and
          is uncertain what just happened.

            Z'leyra pats out the flames of her clothing and tries
          to look for her staff but the blinding flash of the
          grenades seems to have made her vision only white spots.

            Unali tries to roll over to douse the fire on her
          back but the pain is intense and she can't feel her
          left arm anymore.  She is barely breathing as it seems
          the damage is so great the shock is settling in.

            The first ape now hairless leaps toward Z'leyra.  The
          necklace given to him by Korlic helps against the
          flash but not the fire.  The ape rips the rest of
          Z'leyra's helmet and clamps on her neck drawing a
          deep bloody wound giving 5 more immediate damage.  Z'leyra
          can feel her limbs starting to become numb.

            The other ape charges toward Raban and bashes the giant
          with his large club.  The giant takes a direct blow and
          knocks the giant out.

            The other humans were all killed by the explosion since
          they had no real armor on.


          [Time: 1:49:01 am - Samma city, Donara]
          [Ozon's Warehouse]

            Kiet and Arawn move toward the front door.  Aft
          Kiet disguises the bouncer, Arawn uses his gem
          to open the door.

            Invisible now both men move toward the cage where
          Kell and Will are found.  Arawn opens the door and
          then escorts Kiet toward the stairs.  Giving the
          acrobat his gem he releases Kiet who becomes visible.

            Kiet using his speed boots rushes up the stairs in
          hopes not being seen.

            The bouncer has now started a argument with one of
          the other guards and starts a fist fight.

            upstairs Kiet sees one of the guards already inside
          the cage.  It seems two Faerry are already on the ground
          probably dead from the blade of the guard.

            Kiet raises his ring and incinerates one of the other
          guards nearby killing him instantly.

            The other guard in the cage turns and sees Kiet and
          exits the cage with sword in hand.

            Downstairs Arawn tries to rouse Will who seems to
          be knocked out but not waking.  He turns to Keltl
          who seems to be more responsive.

            upstairs Kiet throws one of the magical javelins at
          the guard but the guard is too agile and the javelin
          flies by missing him.

            Charging Kiet the guard swings his sword but the acrobat
          ducks and weaves and blocks another blow wish his shield.

            Arawn finally shakes Kell awake and the half-Elf begins
          to sit up.  Arawn feels unease as this is too easy.  But
          then Kell rolls over and gets to his knees as if waking
          up from a simple dream.  The trader stares at Arawn
          and Arawn can see blood shot eyes.  But Arawn also can
          see the dagger moving straight for his chest.

            Arawn tries to roll away becoming invisible to Kell
          again.  But Kell lunges toward his last known position.

            Both men grapple and wrestle for the dagger as they
          can now see each other.  Arawn is far stronger than
          Kell in most things but it seems the half-elf is in
          berserk mode for some reason.  He has extremely high
          motivation and strength.  Inch by inch the dagger lowers
          toward Arawn.   Then with a burst of power Kell plunges
          the dagger into the right rib and lung of Arawn.  The
          Druid takes 19 points of damage.

            Upstairs Kiet bashes the guard with his shield and
          forces him back.  Raising his hand for another ring
          strike the move dives behind the crates.

            Kiet looks to the cages and finds no guards there
          and moves toward the crates.  The man takes his chance
          and dashes toward the stairs.  Kiet throws the javelin
          at the man and impales him in the back.  The man falls
          down the stairs likely dead or badly hurt.

            Kiet rushes toward the cages but only finds the two
          Faerry on the ground dead.  He starts to open the
          other cages.  The Faerry are so distracted by the
          dead that they don't see the thief Ozon sneaking out
          of his office.

            Ozon with stealth rushes toward Kiet with dagger in
          hand.  Just as Kiet opens the last cage the acrobat
          feels the cold blade inserted in his left kidney.

            "Don't turn your back on a thief."

            Kiet falls to his knees stunned.

            but the Faerry upset and now free fly toward the
          thief and swarm him with claws and fists.
