Morph Banishment Experiment

This log is from the viewpoint of Iscikella Zinnonn. All second person references, therefore, refer to said character.

Leyan, day 11 of the month Imaerasta in the year 5103

[Foothills, Snowy Trail] The curving hillside is covered with pine and maple, their snow burdened branches creaking in the fierce winds. The only break in the forest is along the barren face of a sheer rock slope just to the north. At its base, a deep mound of snow buries all but the roots of a few splintered trees. Eastwards, a snowy trail winds its way across the foothills. You also see the Errethe disk, a lesser ice giant, a swirling mist, a snowshoe hare that is sitting, a rock ptarmigan that is flying around, a v'reen morph that appears stunned and a narrow gorge to the south. Also here: Errethe, Mekthros, Lord Maeror, Pheyrmerrin, Desorceri, Tayre, Great Lord Khaitiff Obvious paths: east

Khaitiff coldly says, "I'm good"

Tayre traces a sign while petitioning the spirits for cognition... Tayre gestures. A sense of peace and calm settles over the area.

Khaitiff traces a sign that contorts in the air while he forcefully incants a dark invocation...

Mekthros exclaims, "Tayre!"

The cold arctic winds begin to whip around you violently!

Daina steps out of the swirling mist. The swirling mist begins to speed up as it spirals back into the opening and fades away.

Tayre says, "It's bound"

Tayre says, "And stunned."

Tayre says, "Etc."

Errethe calmly says, "Well done"

Pheyrmerrin asks, "Keep it pinned! Who sanctified the place?"

Mekthros says, "We can't re-stun it now."

Desorceri says, "we need it stay bound"

Tayre says, "I did."

Tayre stares off into space.

Mekthros says, "Tayre, out."

You say, "Not me."

Tayre says, "Iscikella can bind in a sanct."

Khaitiff traces a sign that contorts in the air while he forcefully incants a dark invocation...

Pheyrmerrin says, "Perhaps she can, but I did not practice in a sanctuary. The spiritual forces surrounding one might cause problems."

Desorceri says, "We need to attack it after the ritual"

Tayre says, "I didn't want another critter killing it."

(Errethe moves out of Pheyrmerrin's way.)

Tayre says, "Ah"

Tayre says, "well then."

Pheyrmerrin nods to Tayre.

Mekthros says, "Drop the sanctuary."

Tayre says, "Let me know when it falls"

With the tip of his staff, Pheyrmerrin quickly traces a circle around the perimeter of the v'reen morph, stepping inside the circle's boundary as he finishes it.

You trace a sign while beseeching the spirits to empower you with the Bind spell... You gesture at a v'reen morph. Warding failed! A v'reen morph suddenly stops all movement.

Pheyrmerrin says, "Now, then... it just requires this sanctuary to fail."

You say, "That could take a bit unfortunately."

Maeror asks, "would it drop faster if i killed tayre..?"

Khaitiff chuckles.

You look at Maeror and shake your head.

Desorceri grins at Maeror.

Desorceri chuckles.

Desorceri sighs.

Pheyrmerrin gives a sigh of relief.

The sense of peace and security passes away from the area.

Mekthros says, "I am going to have to beat Tayre after this."

Khaitiff gestures at a v'reen morph. Warding failed! Its eyes flash with a searing jolt of light! It is badly stunned!

Pheyrmerrin scuffs out the containment line and then redraws it again more carefully.

Daina says, "There it goes"

Maeror says, "ah there we go"

You trace a sign while beseeching the spirits to empower you with the Bind spell... You gesture at a v'reen morph. Warding failed! A v'reen morph suddenly stops all movement.

Maeror yells, "tayre!"

Pheyrmerrin says, "Someone yell for him."

Daina says, "Sanct is gone"

Tayre just arrived.

Daina grins at Tayre.

Pheyrmerrin takes a deep breath.

You see a fairly typical v'reen morph. It appears to be in good shape. It is stunned. It appears to be frozen in place. It has a tendril of amorphous goo.

Tayre yawns.

Pheyrmerrin dips his hand inside a pocket of his cloak and then quickly dusts the morph's gooey body with a fine, faintly silvery-green powder.

Flashes of iridescence burst from the morph's body as the powder strikes its flesh, and the creature twists and keens miserably, though it cannot escape its bonds.

Tayre says, "I think.. it's frozen..."

The ground begins to ripple and a v'reen morph flows upward out of it!

Tayre says, "Oh"

Mekthros traces a sign that contorts in the air while he forcefully incants a dark invocation... Mekthros gestures at a v'reen morph. Warded off!

Pheyrmerrin places his palm flat against the morph's gelatinous forehead, shuddering in disgust as he does so, and then chants a litany of twisting arcane syllables.

Tayre traces a sign while beseeching the spirits for empowerment... Tayre gestures at a v'reen morph. Warding failed! A v'reen morph suddenly stops all movement.

Tayre says, "Weee."

A bolt of iridescent energy lashes from the v'reen morph within the circle to strike the v'reen morph outside the circle. The second v'reen morph is frozen!

Mekthros says, "Keep the second one stunned."

You trace a sign while beseeching the spirits to empower you with the Bind spell... You gesture at a v'reen morph. Warding failed! A v'reen morph suddenly stops all movement.

Pheyrmerrin says, "No need..."

Pheyrmerrin says, "They are both frozen, now."

Khaitiff coldly says, "Excellent"

You say, "Good."

Khaitiff chuckles.

Pheyrmerrin says, "I had not been certain that would work, but the containment of the first will hold the second, so long as the circle is unbroken."

Tayre yawns.

Tayre says, "It's frozen."

Tayre gives Desorceri a little prod between the shoulder blades.

Pheyrmerrin says, "Now, then..."

Pheyrmerrin takes a deep breath.

Pheyrmerrin raises his staff high overhead as he completes his incantation.

Desorceri says, "I'm doing as advised."

The body of the v'reen morph within the circle shimmers slowly out of existence.

Maeror says, "hmm..."

Maeror rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Pheyrmerrin quickly steps out of the circle.

Mekthros ponders.

You say, "Hmmm..."

Tayre says, "I didn't do it."

You say, "One gone."

Pheyrmerrin says, "Brace yourselves. The fragment should appear in a moment."

Mekthros asks, "Where is the remainder?"

Mekthros nods.

Desorceri nods to Pheyrmerrin.

The cold arctic winds begin to whip around you violently!

Pheyrmerrin shivers in the freezing wind. A frosty blow to the neck. Bet that smarts! Pheyrmerrin has been injured by the gale!

Khaitiff shivers in the freezing wind. Khaitiff winces at the cold blast to the left arm. Khaitiff has been injured by the gale!

Tayre says, "Ick"

A pillar of shadow swirls into existence in the center of the circle of protection, and coalesces into the form of a v'reen morph, which gazes out of the circle with dark red, hate-filled eyes.

Daina says, "Bah, stupid wind."

Zosopage's group climbed up a narrow gorge to the south.

Mekthros says, "So who wants to attack it first."

Errethe calmly says, "I think its mad."

Several of the thorns jab into the morph! Shot shatters hip and severs right leg! A v'reen morph falls to the ground grasping its mangled right leg! Shot shatters shoulder and severs left arm! Strike punctures thigh and shatters femur!

A shroud of brilliant rainbow light abruptly blazes around a shadowy v'reen morph, almost blindingly bright in intensity. Before there is time to blink, the center of the rainbow shroud turns to a pure white hue, and then shroud and morph alike have vanished entirely.
