    Default [Nexus - Plot] Prisoner Rescue

    Presumably, everyone is here, all of them having gone through the portal from HALO.

    But where is that?

    A courtyard, abandoned for several years by the look of it. The walls are cracked, and sand has blown in, covering the stonework floor. The suns, both of them, beat down with extraordinary force.

    Behind the portal back to the Ballroom, there is a large building, probably a temple.

    No doubt they're at the farthest from the bright centre of the universe...

    Quinn looks around apprasingly as Dani peeks behind the portal for any potential ambushes!

    There are no obvious threats visible to Dani. She might notice that the walls of the building are extremely thick, and there are few windows, though.

    There's not much else in the courtyard, except for the bones of some sort of animal, picked clean and scattered by scavengers.

    Matt and Kevin are here. So what's the plan?

    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    Matt and Kevin both look uneasy about Dani going in to scout around, but they know she can teleport, so they keep quiet.

    Ashley also can't help but laugh a little at Dani's enthusiasm. "Sure." She goes over to try and put a hand on Dani's shoulder. If that's successful, the illusionist casts the same spell she just cast on herself.

    Ignoring Quinn's stare, Matt looks at Dani. The second you feel something is wrong, teleport back here.
    Kevin, set up a perimeter! Carrie, take Quinn and check out this temple. Make sure it's empty.

    The brown haired druid steps out of the courtyard and starts dragging his warhammer in the ground, drawing a huge square around the whole building while he quietly chants.
