Laurel crouches by the body, taking a few moments to see if it’s regenerating. “Dusk!” She calls out to him “come take a look at this.” As she examines the creature, a look of somber recognition crosses her face. “Is this what killed all of you? And do you know who killed it?” She asks the spirits softly.

Dusk comes at a run and examines the seen.December 19, 2019 at 3:11 am #124674Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel looks up at Dusk as he approaches. “I knew this werewolf. Not well, but we’d met before. He showed up with that bounty hunter from the gate wars. The spirits say he started all this” she gestures to the mess of bodies around them.December 19, 2019 at 4:41 am #124691TBirdParticipant
The spirit will point at the mangled corpse
“This he brought on himself. THAT (pointing around to the carnage beyond the torn apart werewolf) was wrought by those he made”December 19, 2019 at 5:25 am #124704Thomas whiteParticipant
“Damn.” Dusk says tipping back his hat. He tries to get an idea of how many new werewolves there might be by the tracks.December 19, 2019 at 6:21 am #124717TBirdParticipant
Unlike the last massacre, these monsters have not tried to hide their tracks, and Dusk can ascertain that there is at least 10 separate sets.
The main group of tracks seem to converge on the fallen werewolf and then spread out into a circle of death and destructionDecember 19, 2019 at 6:33 am #124718TBirdParticipant
The spirits have begun to unravel, some vanishing completely into the ether
The one that has been speaking with Laurel looks at her “Time is short…the power, the rage..something about them has destroyed us to the core, sending us elsewhere…ask your questions fast….”December 19, 2019 at 6:42 am #124719Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel looks both pained and frightened as she sees the spirits unravel. “No… nonono just hang on.” she’ll look for a body that she can reunite with it’s spirit.December 19, 2019 at 9:48 pm #124832TBirdParticipant
The spirit will smile “It’s all right. We move onto the next life in the cycle. Questions. Ask them fast before we fade or we die for nothing”December 19, 2019 at 11:52 pm #124869Estrella NeishParticipant
“No, I can help you!” She desperately tries to use restore to return a spirit to it’s body. When is is unsuccessful she grows more agitated “I… I’m so sorry.” Laurel takes a shaky breath, trying to calm herself down. “Questions… do you know why he attacked you? Was it just random?”December 20, 2019 at 12:53 am #124886TBirdParticipant
The spirit will nod as others fade out behind him
As he begins to walks towards Laurel, his spirit will become more solid, able to be seen and heard by those without See Spirits
“He joined us as a guard just after the last full moon. He seemed dangerous, which is what we wanted. We didn’t know how dangerous…..My daughter was the first he seduced. Not her body, but her mind. He spoke to them in whispers, promised them strength….last night he gave it to them. The ritual was simple, he said, but needed 12 of them to share their blood in a cup, there” he will point to a shattered ornate chalice on the ground at his feet “and soon after midnight, they all drank.” A slight glow can be seen around the chalice, moving into the spirit
The spirit will look pained at Laurels expression “You will see us again, little winged one. Nexus provides, in 3 moons time we will rise. Please, find my daughter. All of the newly made they went berserk… tore this monster to pieces and devoured what they could. the sounds that they made, rage and pain and confusion….they’re not BAD, not evil….just afraid and confused”

Tears prick Laurel’s eyes as she watches more of the spirits fade. “How do we help them? And where did they go?”December 20, 2019 at 4:39 am #124969TBirdParticipant
Looking sad again, the spirit will start to fade as glow from the shattered chalice fades
“The scattered to the winds. I can only hope that they are not too far gone into the madness”
His look will change to one of determination “I WILL return from the ground. I will find my girl and protect her, even from herself”
The spirit will fade completely, the chalice crumbling to dustDecember 20, 2019 at 6:58 am #125006Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel watches in horrified silence as the final spirit fades. “We’ll find them” she whispers, tears wetting her cheeks. She will reach for the chalice, attempting to identify magic whatever is left of it.December 20, 2019 at 9:20 pm #125039Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk places a comforting hand on Laurel’s back while she inspects the chalice.
