    "Astrana!" He shouts, hoping that wherever she is she can hear him. Oh god, what happened to her? Is she even anywhere near here anymore?

    First he needs to get somewhere he can see before he can do anything, though, and somewhere that isn't that box. He stumbles int he dark toward where he's sure the front of the stage is. He stoops over, feeling for the edge of it so he can carefully hop down. After that... well hopefully he can find somewhere a little more sane.
    That's easy enough to do... nothing keeps Val from reaching the stage's edge and hopping down. He hears a snarl behind him, a scold, a curse. His feet hit the sand beneath the stagetop... and he keeps falling. In fact, unless he has some way to quickly escape his fate, Valente will fall through that soft grit, down into a choking lightless place with sand pressing upon him from all sides.

    After a time, he lands on his back. It is not a hard impact. He is lying in a mound of sand, in the lot beneath Croupelt's dirigible. The dirigible is slowly accelerating to the west. The sky is fittingly overcast, dark as an ink blot. The dirigible makes a faint puttering as it is propelled away.

    "A winter coat...?" Sarina echoes. She only realizes now that she probably should have dressed warmer, but she's been so worked up that she hadn't really been paying attention to the cold. She smiles sadly.

    Rose nods. She has a fuzzy coat, but Sarina isn't all covered by her shell and silly ears. She must get cold.

    Val lands dazed in the sand. He struggles to get up, spitting sand on the pile and trying to get steady. He looks upward toward the departing dirigible, utter despair in the pit of his stomach. "Astrana!" He shouts, his voice cracking. "Astrana!" He tries to run after it, stepping heavily through the sand. There's no way he could hope to do anything, but he tries for the moment anyway.

    Hark! From behind Valente, a terrible retching, and the sound of a body in great pain. Should he turn, he will find the mutilated form of the woman he stabbed, her blood steadily soaking into the expelled sands of the arena. She could be in worse shape, all things considered. Gut wounds take a very long time to kill after all.

    Val turns around to see the woman, and he somehow gets even more pale. "Oh god." He takes an uncertain step toward her. "I didn't know, I-" Okay, don't panic. Focus. He rushes toward her, stumbling through the sand. "I'll call and ambulance. Just try to hold on." He tries to put one hand over her wound and put pressure on it. With the other he fishes out his phone to call an emergency number.

    The girl is saveable! And the ambulance from one of Inside's many charitable hospitals will arrive... though it takes an agonizingly long time. Valente's victim is long since unconscious by the the time they are loading her up... and he is told that the police are going to have some serious questions for him.

    What does Val do?

With the other he fishes out his phone to make a call. Not an emergency number, but an ambulance nonetheless.

    It takes a little while, but a lone ambulance makes its way toward them. A pair of paramedics step out, one an ork woman and the other a human man who shares Val's palor. "Valente? Is that you? What is god's name is going on?"

    "It's need to know, Daniele. She can't croke without me talking to her. I'll owe you."

    "Get the stretcher, Phrang." Daniele steps over and crouches next to Val and the bleeding woman. "And after that?"

    "A mugging? Doesn't matter, admit her normally. Just make sure I'm there as soon as she can talk."

    "A'ight a'ight. Get outta the way. You're gonna kill her if the stab wound doesn't."

    Soon enough the ambulance will make a beeline for Riverside with the four of them in tow.

    "Um...okay." Sarina looks like she might want to hug her sister, but just doesn't know how to respond to all this. So she shirks away, shy.
    "Good luck then." she says at last, and scurries away.

    Mengshi's eyes glow with a purple light as she seem to look straight into their eyes. The two might feel a tingle in their head, though otherwise it is impossible to tell that anyone would be looking straight into their minds.

    ((If there is anything special can see, which she could potentially use, please mention it (if you can think of anything).))

    "Your self-images are strong." The dragon suddenly remarks. "It should be enough. Prepare yourselves."

    Then Steves and Luvons aspects will morph into what they themselves see as them. This is however based of their own self-image, so depending on that their new powers or appearance will be based on how they see themselves and their powers.
    So the exact change will be up to the players.

The woman looks tiny, almost emaciated without her extravagant dress on. She's got heavy bandages around her middle and lies half beneath a blanket, surrounded by monitors producing a steady string of presumably positive sounds.

    Her hair is stringy, swept back from her face as two dark curtains. Her eyes are haunted and dull, but they seem to gleam with attentiveness when Valente appears. Her eyelids fall halfway as she watches him, no expression at all on her tightly drawn face.

    "Thank you for getting me out of that place," she says, suddenly, very softly.
    [Westside Hospital]

    "Well, I couldn't exactly just leave you." He's not a terrible person, he hopes. Val moves closer, standing next to the bed. "But... I need to ask you some questions. I need to find Croupelt, quickly." His expression is grave.

    The girl looks straight ahead, her eyes narrowed with drowsiness and a sort of dull, resolute acceptance of her unfortunate situation. "He's in the Void," she says, a rattle in her throat. The wounded girl coughs, raw and ravaged. "The Circus cuts a hole through to the Void once they've caught a few people they like." She blinks, swallows, slow. Expression hardly changing. "I've seen it a few times now."

    "I know the people he talks to when he does it. They'll have ships. Spaceborers. I can point you at them..." She leans her head back. "Should be close enough that you'll see the Circus right on the other side, if you can make it through..."

    Her eyes flick to Val again. "What else?"

    "Find the black ships," rasps the girl. "From a place called Leng. They're everywhere... everywhere there's a dock to take them. I saw them in Inside." It doesn't sound like she's too familiar with calling a city that. "The little men inside should take you where you need to be."

    Steve's powers return to him. However, since he imagined what he saw as an ideal version of himself, Steve changed somewhat. Although he is nowhere near perfect, and his abilities did not increase in strength Steve now has more of an understanding of what a paladin must be.

    "Okay..." Val takes a moment to consider and then he decisively grabs his purse. "Right. The people hear will make sure you're okay. So, take care." Unless she wants to stop him, he's going to rush out of the room.

    The girl croaks something faint and rather melancholy sounding. She also murmurs 'good luck'. And then she settles back in, a look of something like peace on her face, eyelids slowly drooping.

    [Riverside Cavern]

    Along parts of the River for which the remarkable city is named, stone canals and walls have been laid. Many are in disrepair, crept over by moss and mildew, sagging with the weight of decades. Sticks leads Jim, Eschelle and the good Mr. Barring down a narrow set of stone steps to a place where the wall touches the river. At the foot of the stairs is a crevice in the stone where several bricks have fallen through, and a dimly lit space of surprising broadness beyond.

    Sticks looks at the spot and then at the fellowship. "I'm afraid I can pass no further. I cannot risk encountering something that would awaken latent memories... Or cause some break in my fragile artificial memories. It is likely I would become more a hindrance than a help."

    He extends his hand to Barring, presumably for a shake. He will clap Jim on the shoulder, trying to pull the boy into a short embrace. "Jim, just... if there is anything that is going to put you three in danger, and you know it, just... turn back. Nothing inside the Vault is worth you coming to harm."

    The ancient ruins stand against the desert, shattered marble columns rising from the sand like the bones of some colossal beast long dead, bleaching in the sun. With a pop and a flash of blue light, the rebel demon Tethrik and his companion suddenly appear a short distance away. "We're here." A dark gap in the sand looms a short distance to the west, a marble chamber which may well be an entrance.

    Michalson shakes Sticks' hand, then lets him and Jim say their farewells as he peers into the holes in the wall. He's put an ocular on his right eye, that lets him perceive currents and stirrings of magic much better than his naked eye would.

    Armonia squinted his eyes in the blinding light, sweat already beginning to form on his forehead. "Gods Tethrik, it's as hot as a Fire Elemental's rear end here." Spotting a nearby pillar, Armonia approaches. On the column, nearly faded from years of exposure, runes cross the marble. Taking a moment to read them, Armonia speaks out loud. "May the stars guide those who seek enlightenment......May the v.....vour...a...who seek.......eal..............light. Well I'd say we're in the right place..."
    If Tethrik comes to read the runes, he may recognize the ones that are not worn beyond recognition are written in Primordial

    "I bet I can fill in the blanks. May the stars guide those who seek enlightenment. May the void devour any who seek to steal the light. That sounds about right. Shall we go inside?" Tethrik strides boldly into the dark gateway, ignoring the possibility of traps. He probably wouldn't be able to spot any anyway. His darkvision should allow him to see what is inside with no trouble.

His darkvision should allow him to see what is inside with no trouble.
    While the inside of the ruined temple may appear as bright as day to Tethrik, it appears as a shadowy pit of pure blackness to Armonia. "Great....I knew I should have gotten that Everburn brand torch, well nothing to do but to try this." Unsheathing his sword, Armonia stares at it, his eyes once again burning with divine light.

    "You can't see in the dark. That's going to be a problem, but not for long. Tethrik opens his hand an a small ball of flame emerges from it, glowing like a candle and illuminating the room. It's a small antechamber, strange carvings worn by time decorating the walls. A doorway on the other side of the room leads into another, much larger chamber.

    As light fills the room from Tethrik's flame, Armonia's sword begins to vibrate slightly. "Ah, sweet sweet light, thank you for showing the way Tethrik." Armonia steps down into the antechamber. As he walks towards Tethrik, a barely perceivable aura begins to come forth from his sword. It expands to fill the room. Any magic items Tethrik is carrying that are exposed, begins to glow softly. The doorway into the next room also begins to glow softly.

    The only item on Tethrik's person which glows is the pouch on his belt (unless being a demon, an inherently magical creature, triggers the aura)
    Tethrik moves forward, oblivious to the glowing doorway, and passes through it.

    (Would detect magic detect Tethrik?)
    As soon as Tethrik steps through the doorway, a loud screech fills the room. A wave of air blows strongly past Tethrik. Tethrik's flame will reveal a large room with a pure black ceiling and floor, giving the eerie illusion that he is walking into nothingness. There seem to be 4 more doorways in the room, but it is hard to tell even with the light of the fire.
