((Ah, I so should have left him in the gardens...))

Hawkeye finds a good spot out the way of the thick of the fighting and fires several fireball imbued arrows at areas that the cultists are in.

The infected will quickly come under Chimera's control unless some VERY strong magic is protecting them. Then they change sides. And regardless, Chimera quickly copies the werefox lycanthrope and spreads it among is minions.

When this happens, the cultist all suddenly become werefoxes. About 6 leap at each of the guards, attacking savagely.

Of course no delay. Having that option just doubles the overall damage output. The zombie cultists are now roasted zombie cultists.

Ilias' blade swarm successfully cuts down several cultists and wounds others. And then the wounds heal. A few of the dead ones that were left in one piece get up again.

The fireball arrows re quite effective, though a few cultists aren't simply turned to ash and arise as zombies.

Ilias frowns and his eyes glow with a bright white light "Foul things at work here. Looks like keeping a distance is a good tactic". A heavy storm cloud forms above the scene of the chaos, unleashing powerful strikes of lightning at the cultists.

The guards were doing reasonably well against humans, but they don't do so well against other foxes and one falls.

Fenric blinks

That's not FAIR.

Fenric casts Undeath to Death to see if he can put an end to the zombies.

******

Ironically, at the same moment, way in the corner in deepest shadows, L'Naith's agent casts Unhallow and places a weak taint of the nine hells.  You'd have to stumble into it to notice, and who ever goes here?

((If Kyrain had one of his characters here that one would stumble across it Wink ))

Hawkeye sticks his tongue out "Blech, Cultists, zombies, we're just one elder god away from a god-damned Lovecraft novel..."

As the arrows worked well last time he fires another volley of fireball embued arrows into the pack of zombies/cultists.

The cultists suddenly seem to lose all of their advantages, and stop receiving reinforcements. So they are now humans punching whoever's left.

The lightning seems to do a very good job of downing cultists.

Fenric's spell seems to work, as the zombified cultists fall. In fact, it wipes out all of them

(To avoid setting a precedent, that didn't actually work. Chimera was pulling out)

The fireball arrows fry a lot of cultists.

(( True enough!  Very Happy ))

Fenric misintreprets the sudden turn of events

Awww!  Such a pity when your buffs wear off.  Find a higher-level caster, next time.

Hawkeye lowers his bow semi-suspiciously "That was an awfully short attack."

Fenric nods

Something's not quite right, to be sure.  Who are these guys?  Why did they attack us?  How did they find their way through the tunnels?  Why did their enhancements all wear off so suddenly?

Fenric walks over to a dead cultist who is more or less intact, and flips him over.

Can't say I recognize the symbol... it'll take a bit of research.

"I think it's safe to say more is to be expected at some point" Ilias says, remaining in the tree for now

Hawkeye frowns and tries to analyse it from his experience as a commander "Unless this was a diversion...it certainly kept our attention."

Fenric looks up at Hawkeye

Val, perhaps?  We left him in a bit of a rush...

then over at Deadly

I would think it is safest to assume that we have not seen the last of these guys.  We also need to find some way to counter their enhancements.

Healers have come to tend to those who can be tended.  Acolytes carry the others off to the morgue.

Val, meanwhile, is lying where he's always been, straining his ears for an indication of how things are going, and trying not to get irritated by his incapacitation.

Hawkeye shakes his head "Perhaps, but I suspect not. That method of attack on the temple and sudden retreat smacks of 'look at me and don't pay attention to the guy that's about to stab you in the back'. Going on my gut as a former mercenary captain I would say that something else has gone on, but I don't know what."

Ilias jumps back down from the tree "Better check on him, then, and better keep the bodies for closer examination." He says as he heads back to the sanctuary

Fenric nods, giving the bodies of temple-folk a sorrowful look as he goes

Holy Inari, mother of foxes, grant your peace to the souls of your slain servants.

Ilias returns to the sanctuary to make sure Val is still there


Meanwhile a certain fairy decides to break Continuity, as well as her earlier decision to not visit the temple again. Now she finds her there anyway

Fenric sees Val and Ilias, then looks at the fairy, and slumps a bit

Hello, again.  I must apologize for being quite so rude the other day.  I'm never at my best after... that... happens.

The sanctuary looks normal, but Hawkeye's warning has Fenric distressed.

Val looks up at Ilias. What's going on? Everything okay?

Hawkeye crouches on the ground and tries to think things through more.

A black and red cat, now with a huge scar running vertically through one of his eyes, walks in the front gate and through the sanctuary. It looks around for the highest up member of the church available.

Fenric looks over from the fairy to the cat and blinks

... Kalidas?  Is that you?

(( I don't remember.... wahhhh! ))

"For now, though we've lost some of the clergy I'm afraid. Also something sinister may have transpired, and we're not yet sure what"


The fairy blinks, clearly having expected a different welcome. "Oh, well, apology accepted. I'm sorry my rats got free, too. I'm still not sure how, but I hired the wolf as a guard so hopefully he can help."

((heh, yes it is))

"What's left of me at least, I had an unfortunate incident with one of Tempus' divine agents. I'm calling the result a bloodied score draw. But I digress, I'm here about a slight oversight by my temple that has just become aware to us that also, I think at least, might have be of some interest (or concern) to this temple or most probably to your family. Is Krystal available as well?"

((better start taking numbers again Wink ))

Val frowns at the news Ilias has, then sighs. Typical. The one time I'm here when the temple actually needs me, and I'm next to useless. He says, bitterly.
