At last! The group is all back together. Well….with the exception of Rinaru, who apparently has been working for not only Daedra(yes I’ll say his real name dammit!) but also Loki, right behind our backs. That traitorous double-dealing bastard. But he got what he deserved, a shot to the back of the head and then frozen and shattered into tiny pieces by Zexion. I’m sure that did the trick, though I’ve seen Rinaru come back from some pretty devastating injuries. So who knows? Either way, the group is back together, and we’re working to help the elves of Mitra’Nora deal with Daedra and his minions.
But lets go back a bit, to how we got to that point.
Zexion, Rinaru, and myself set out to Zexion’s old fortress where he says his ship should be. Of course, thanks to the planar binding, we can’t use any kind of fast transit, so we took the long way. We went first by horseback, Zexion kept us at a pretty grueling pace, until we couldn’t bring the horses any farther. Then we walked the rest of the way. One of the nights, when we were getting up to press on, Zexion got up, and took a seemingly random shot at me with his pistol. First thing that came to mind was “DODGE!”, second thing was “WTF, I thought you were on our side”. But I turned around to find that the shot was not meant for me, but for the bastard who appeared right behind me…Loki. After being shot, Loki went into his dark spirit form, and Zexion responded with a little red crystal, which I’m guessing would have trapped him. But Loki got away. We looted his corpse, I got the Book back, and Zexion discovered Loki had been using a telepathic back door in my head to track our progress. He got rid of the back door, and we continued on.
Once we got to Zexion’s fortress, he took control of it and had his machines clear the place out. We had to fight a big construct, but it was dealt with quickly enough. The enemy tried to flee on Zexion’s ship, and we were stalled with three of Zexion’s corrupted androids and a demon. Zexion went ahead of us to stop the ship, and three of Zexion’s uncorrupted androids, Rinaru, and myself dealt with what was left behind. The androids fought each other and the good ones won, and I cut the demon’s wings off and ripped its heart out.
Zexion returned with his ship, and we started to get on board. That’s when Zexion blew the back of Rinaru’s head off, and revealed that the asshole of a devil had been working for Daedra behind our backs. So we looted his body, and reduced it to tiny little frozen pieces and continued on to Mitra’Nora. Along the way we found Oni in a cell on the ship, apparently without any of his abilities. First thought “Haha, that’s what you get for going off for blood magic”, second thought “That really sucks, because now we are down one powerful ally”. But onward we went.
Upon arriving at the city, we were escorted to the library where we were told Miles and the rest of the group were currently at. After a short update there, I had only one thing on my mind. This was the biggest library I had ever seen and I just had to check and see if they had anything that they could offer a near powerless Me. The librarian was helpful, and set me up with a book on Spatial magic, and Rune magic(which looks to be rather complicated). Oni also got the idea to look into Tattoo magic. So we got a book on it, and went with Miles to go see someone about it.
Just when things were getting good, they went and got better. Valanon showed up with a friend who turns out is Jerle’s sister, and had a good bit of news to share. Penndarin is dead! He also had a book left behind by Dearin that seemed to have information on how to use the corruption against its masters. After a bit of fiddling about with it, Oni got it open, apparently because he had the intent to use its knowledge. Miles and Oni used the information inside it to inscribe runes and spells into Oni(similar to the ones used on Will). This has allowed him to use the corruption without being controlled by our enemy, and through it, he can channel blood magic.
Not much else was done after that. Zexion helped me to activate the Dragonborn DNA that I had obtained, and Miles taught me a bit about finesse in combat. After a bit of sparring with Valanon, Ventrace, and Oni, I decided to go off to write this journal entry and read up some more on Spatial magic. So with this all written, I’m off to learn some new tricks.
