Random Planar Locations II

For use for planar hopping plots.

------------

Kar screams and staggers back.
Who

"You are lucky to have come this far. But my little ones shall not be denied."

The creatures tries to grab him by the throat.
Obscurejones

He's grabbed, stares at the creature with a mixture of defiance and fear.
Who

The creatures pumpkin head leers back in a cruel grin as his hand starts to squeeze.
Obscurejones

Kar's eyes start to roll back in his head.
Who

See, old Kar would have had a crafty escape plan.

The creature keeps his grip firm, attempting to knock Kar in to unconsciousness.
Obscurejones

As Kar's eyes finish rolling back his new black ones slide into place.  He slips out out of the creatures fingers and drops to the floor.
Bad Idea.
Who

The creature seems unfazed by this and slashes at Kar.
Obscurejones

He flows around the claws and flicks a claw of his own at it's eyes.
Who

Despite the eye appearing to be just a cut out part of the pumpkin his claw stops just in front of the eye. The creature tries to grab him and hurl him out the window.
Obscurejones

He lets himself get hurled.
Who

He's going to hit the jaggedy rocked ground pretty hard.
Obscurejones

He twists and flattens at the edge's gliding down towards the ground.
Who

Then I guess he'll be fine.
Obscurejones

It's still a bit of a rough landing.  As he land his eyes return to normal and he seems confused.
Who

Well the creature in the tower thinks he's dead so he's safe for now.
Obscurejones

He stumbles at first but starts running for the exit.
Who

It's still there, and as luck would have it he'll be uninterrupted back.
Obscurejones

He dives through.
Who

Dei and Steph appear in large dance all, the people around them of many different races, all immaculately dressed.
Metakirb

Steph looks around.
Who

"What do you think?"

The place is beautifully decorated.
Metakirb

Wow...
Who

"I'm, er...not very good at dancing."
Metakirb

I don't remember if I am or not.

She smiles and tries to start dancing with him.
Who

Dei nervously takes her hands and begins to dance slowly, stumbling quite a bit.
Metakirb

She's as good as him.
Who

Well then I guess it's going to be pretty awkward, Dei's not going to stop until she does though.
Metakirb

She dances for a while, then tries to find somewhere to sit down.
Who

There are some seats off to the side, Dei sits down next to her.

"You were good."
Metakirb

So were you.
Who

"Thanks, enjoy yourself?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Dei smiles at her.

"Good. Want another dance or should we head back?"
Metakirb

One more.
Who

He stands up and tries to take her hands again.
Metakirb

She lets him, smiling.
Who

And the dance begins again as he pulls her close, he's ever so slightly better than last time.
Metakirb

She's the same as before.
Who

He's smart enough not to bring that up and holds her close as they dance.
Metakirb

She blushes a little.
Who

He's not showing it but she can probably feel his hearts going like jackhammers all the way through the dance.
Metakirb

She doesn't feel it.
Who

"Ready to go home?"
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

Dei attempts to lead her out of the dance hall and call up a portal.
Metakirb

She stays with him.
Who

He gestures for her to step through the portal.
Metakirb

She heads through.
Who

And Dei follows
Obscurejones

Jeska, Dei, and possibly Rabbit/Clark will find themselves in a large Bazaar.  Demons and devils of various kinds fill the streets, trading for souls and goods.
Who

Well Jeska was just aiming to send Dei and Rabbit so unless something else's happened it should just be them. Thought I'd check first.
Metakirb

Jeska isn't there, she only sent Dei and Clark
Who

"Okay this actually worked we need a plan. Ideally we get out this with our souls intact. We need to find out who's got the power round here."

"Better start asking."

"You really thinks that's going to work?"

"Got a better idea."

So off they go, to make what is essentially a gather information check.
Obscurejones

I'm feeling generous.  Roll it.
Who

I was not expecting that, you know what on second thoughts lets do it the regular way. Dei decides violence has yet to fail him and decides to try and track down some lower demon he can threaten, preferable somewhere that's not going to draw too much attention.
Obscurejones

A dretch wanders through his field of veiw carrying an armload of books.
Who

A dretch? To the Monster Manual! Okay it turns out the monster manual is one of the few 3.5 books I don't have on this laptop. Nevermind.

"You distract him."

Rabbit nods and moves to block its path as Dei slinks off.

"Excuse me, a moment of your time?"
Obscurejones

The dretch looks up over it's spectacles at Rabbit.
What the solar are you?
Who

"Well you see my friend kind of went missing and I was just sort of wondering whether you'd know where the high ups around here hang about?"

This'd be so much easier if those lies Nadine spread about him had reached here. Dei's in position to jump out and be all gun wavey and threatening but he wants to see how this goes first.
Obscurejones

The dretch frowns at him.
You're that holy warrior sort, aren't you?
Who

Maybe they did, either way Rabbit puts a hand on his sword and tries to act tough, hard when you've got pink hair and rabbit ears but he'll give it his best shot.

"I might be. Gonna tell me what I want to know?"
Obscurejones

I've nothing to say to the likes of you.  Lucky I don't have you run in for trespassing.
The dretch tries to hurry past him.
Who

"Sorry to bother you."

As he lets the dretch past he attempts to knock him over, making it look like as much of an accident as possible. Aiming to make him drop the books he's carrying.
Obscurejones

The dretch sprawls onto the ground, books flying.  A few of the more impressive demons look over.
Who

"Sorry about that, clumsy me."

He casts his eyes over the book, do any of them look like they might contain useful information?
Obscurejones

Does Rabbit read Infernal?
Who

With a quick Comprehend Languages spell he does.
Obscurejones

Factotum... Right.  Forgot about that.  In that case he'll notice that at least one of the books has a title that translates roughly to "Grazzt's Guide To The Greater Realms: Happily Hellish Hangouts"
Who

Very Happy So glad I picked that class now.

He tries to grab the book in question and leg it back toward Dei.
Obscurejones

The dretch points and shouts theif, but the greater demons seem more amused than worried.
Who

What a stroke of luck.

"What's that?"

"A guide book, hopefully it'll show us where we need to go."

Dei looks at the cover, he can't make hide nor hare of it

"Wait, how can you read that?"

"Magic."

Dei nods with a slight frown and Rabbit starts flicking through it.
Obscurejones

There's a variety of likely locations.  It's a fairly thick book.\
(deadtime)
Who

Well dang...that's unhelpful.

"Anything?"

"Nothing specific."

"Okay we can go back to that then. I was just thinking we found this spun smoke stuff, anything about that?"

Rabbit goes back to looking through the book, his searching narrowed down.
Obscurejones

Well there is the rather large fashion section.  It mentions the infernal equivalents of Milan and Spain.  Pictures are included of succubi and lilitu stalking the catwalk.  There's a smaller section in words only that mentions that of course, all of the very latest fashions can be found at the Fiery Dance.
Who

Ah ha! I knew it.

"Ah ha! I knew it! I told her going there was a bad idea!"

"What?"

"I think I know where she is."

"Got any way to get there? Cause otherwise we're kinda stuck."

Rabbit shakes his head rather nervously as he realises the implications.

"I'm pretty spent magicwise."
Metakirb

Rhias pulls the two of them back.
Obscurejones

Ha!  Factotum your way out of this one Rabbit boy.
Edit:  Well dang.
Who

Bam! A van appears over a crater strewn landscape, oddly floating in the air.
Who

Uh... Not what I just said?


"You paid someone, to steal eyes!? What the hell?!"
Obscurejones

To be fair I gave them right back and she'll be fine in a week or so.
Who

"That doesn't matter....why eyes!? That's just, euck."

She waves her arms around emphatically to help indicate her point.
Obscurejones

Soft organ tissue that's relatively stable and won't incapacitate the donor.
Who

"Could you not just have asked to borrow them?"

If anyone cares there seems to be some kind of battle going on down below them.
Obscurejones

... That had not occurred to me.
He looks out the window.
Who

Below them what might be demons, or possibly devils clash as mages sling spells this way and that.

"How would you like it if I stole your eyes?"
Obscurejones

I'd grow new ones.  They'd probably have superpowers.  Should we do something about that?
Who

Dawn winds the window down and sticks her head out the window.

"Dunno, do you want to?"
Obscurejones

A little exercise might be good.  Kinda want to get a chance to test the upgrade that isn't fighting ominous tentacles.
Who

"Lotta guys there though, thinking we pick an easier fight."
Obscurejones

Weapons system could probably disperse 'em.
Who

She shrugs.

"Your call."
Obscurejones

John flips the system to non lethal and unleashes a volley of stun cannon on the battle below.
Who

What kind of strength are we working with here? Cause when Dawn tried to stun a demon it pan out terribly well for her.
Obscurejones

It's designed to be fired in ship to ship battles.  It should drop an elephant's worth of enemy.
Who

Well then, down the little buggers go.

"Nice shot."
Obscurejones

John nods.
So... Want to investigate?
Who

"Sure, this thing shouldn't be floating for this long anyway. Bad for the mileage."
Obscurejones

John keeps the guns trained on the stunned demons as Dawn lands.
Who

They touchdown with a bounce and a thunk. Dawn slowly clambers out and surveys their current surroundings.

"Certainly different."
