Arkady looks at the idol, then at Piper. "Is it protected by magic?"

"Is it as simple a task as that would seem?" Felix says as he levels his shotgun at the idol, finger on the trigger.

"It will be protected," says Piper. "I don't know how. It will be made of oven-baked clay and can be destroyed by any means that will destroy such clay. As long as it remains whole, it is a direct conduit for the power of Azash; destroying it will cut that conduit, and weaken the power of the Elder God throughout this entire region."

(Roger goes to retrieve Ivan. Hopefully he hasn't gone too far. He informs the hunchback that the idol needs to be destroyed.)

"If you'll give me a moment to head out to the truck I have a whole collection of poppers bangers fizzers foomers flashers flamers and frags that should do the trick. Also guns. I should probably go grab something a bit more robust than a pistol."

Though Ivan ran as fast as he could, he was not too far to hear his name being yelled. (Fortunate, since this castle is a maze and Roger doesn't know the route to the chapel). He is, however, more than a little frustrated at Roger changing his mind so quickly.

Piper glances up at the roof. "Hurry," she says, "I'm not entirely sure how long that succubus will take to recover."

Felix helps Nate grab some explosives from the truck. That should do the trick against the idol and whatever protections it has.

Arkady stands guard. He looks over to Sir Ulath. "I'm sorry about your axe."

"I can always get another axe," states Sir Ulath, philosophically. "And that could have gone a lot worse."

Nate and Felix rush off to the truck. With Ivan to show them the way (this castle really is a maze) they get there and back very quickly, bringing a fair amount of explosives with them.

The idol does absolutely nothing while they're out, but then again, no-one approaches it, either. The continued tension prevents anyone from relaxing and recovering their mental stress - that will have to wait until you're pretty sure there won't be another surprise popping up the moment you do relax.

Nate hands Sir Ulath an axe he pulled off a wall somewhere. "Ivan says this belonged to Count so-and-so the bellicose, so try not to lose it."


He turns to Ivan.

"Do you know if there's anything behind that wall the idol is in front of?"

"Hmph. Very poorly maintained," says Sir Ulath, giving the axe a critical eye.

"Better than nothing?" suggests Ivan.

"Barely." But despite his opinion on the matter, Sir Ulath does hold on to the new axe.

"It's mostly wine cellars down here," says Ivan. "So... rack of wine, probably?"

"Load-bearing wall?" asks Sir Ulath, giving the wall a very critical look

"Um," says Ivan. "I have no idea."

Felix sets up the explosives and ushers everyone out of the blast zone before commencing the count down.

"5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Fire in the hole!"

Felix pushes the plunger and detonates the explosives around the idol.

The trouble begins the moment that Felix starts setting up the explosives. Abruptly, without warning, a different translucent shape appears - a tall, vaguely human-shaped creature in a long, black cloak, with a greenish glow emanating from under the hood. One claw (that is not a human hand, though it comes from a sleeve) reaches out to grab Felix' arm...

Felix: Alertness: +0 Sidekick: +4 Roll: +0
Creature: Fists: +1 Roll: -2 Total: -1


Theresa yells in shock as the thing appears out of nowhere, and Felix twists aside and backs rapidly away, his arm remaining ungrabbed.

"Seeker!" warns Piper, presumably naming the creature. "Don't get too close, and don't look directly at that glow! Destroy the statue and the image will collapse!"

Arkady sighs, and starts trying to cast this new manifestation back to where it came from by exorcising it. He focuses his attention on the arm and lower, not the hood.

Felix backs away and decides to opt for the simpler route of shooting the idol with his shotgun.
