Saturday Group 5/14/16
In game: 1/1
As the group gets ambushed by the remaining champions, the Hatter and Dale crawl out of a pit, seemingly from nowhere (odd how they always show up at just the right time). Kreg, possibly spooked from near burial by his own bomb, skitters off into the woods. Hopefully he’ll show up again soon.
Nitro disappears almost immediately and begins pelting the group with arrows. Trying to control the situation, Roren lays down some tentacles and a stinking cloud to trap Blaze and Gemini. Blaze escapes and begins to attack Roren as Gullycloak, Reyes, and Dale try to locate and subdue Nitro. Suddenly, one of the Hatter’s infamous hats lands on Nitro’s head and suddenly the area is covered in some effect that suppresses magic. Roren and Blaze plummet to the ground and try to get out of the area of effect so they can kill each other. Hatter and Dale team up on Nitro, trying to kill her. Gullycloak desperately tries to revive Reyes, who has fallen victim to Nitro’s deadly assault, as he drags her out of the area of antimagic so he can heal her. Gemini, freed from imminent tentacle death and eternal nausea, flees into the woods. Roren manages to disable Blaze temporarily by causing his lips to be stitched together, sending his foe into intense confusion. Blaze rushes back into the antimagic field for backup and finds things have gone WAY south.
Reyes, revived, chases down Nitro (who realizes that now is the time to escape) and she tries to escape with Blaze, but is entangled in Gullycloak’s trusty net and she gets tied up. Blaze is captured, alive, as Gullycloak wishes to question him. Roren promises to Blaze for troubling them if he doesn’t give them any information about Grimsbone or the other Silotown Saviors’ whereabouts. Blaze quickly tries to weave a lie, trying to lead them into a trap, but Gullycloak sees through it and allows Roren the pleasure of eating Blaze. Dale is naturally appalled by Roren’s perverse glee, but Gullycloak and Roren reassure him that he is an enemy and dead already. Roren adds that it’s a waste of good meat. Dale warns Roren that he’s watching Roren for misbehavior, but the creep just cackles and goes back to his meal.
As they decide to rest in the antimagic field, knowing that it seems to be the safest place against the spellcaster champion, Gemini, Reyes offers to take watch so the spellcasters can regain their stamina. With Nitro unconscious and Blaze neutralized, only Gemini and the many dangers of the jungle remain before the search for the elevator pieces can really begin anew.
