    Gafler ponders a moment. "I've not much experience with casting myself-do any of you have experience with alchemy? Because, you lot!" he addresses the other gnomes. "I need to know everything you know about putting spells in potions. Or anything that suppresses enchantments, or just gives the user courage."

    "Battlebrew," one of the gnomes answers.

    "Are you insane?" Gafler asks. "Don't answer that-because honestly, it might work."

    "I've no experience with alchemy. What is battlebrew? Are you just suggesting we get the city drunk or is this even more dangerous?"

    "The old saws about 'liquid courage' didn't come from nowhere." If Variel was joking, his delivery was completely deadpan. "I cannot dispel the effect from more than, say, two people every hour. And only so many people can stand near me, if for no other reason than physical space. If there is a chance this 'battlebrew' can rouse them from their stupor, well, there is much danger that can be justified given the situation."

    "Battlebrew is a potent concoction," Gafler says. "Difficult to make, especially in mass-volatile, even. But it gives supernatural speed, strength, and courage-alongside recklessness and ignorance of danger. It's the kind of thing you dirnk when you're desperate or suicidal-but the first of that might apply here. If there was some way of making it less potent... Just enough to give an edge against this depression, that might do the trick, but I'm not that well versed in alchemy. Garl!" he addresses one of the gnomes his wife brought. "Variel here will cast a spell on you-don't worry, it'll make you feel worlds better." He nods, and looks to Variel.

    Too low to dispel, but I'll allow a save.


    Garl seems quite a bit better, after the spell is cast. "But... What-"

    As the hour goes on, you can see Gafler and Garl begin to slip back into the malaise, Gafler being hit harder. As they feel it coming on, they start sketching out plans and blueprints.

    Garl turns to you all, after about forty minutes, and says "Alright. We've got a basic blueprint for a sort of potion dispenser-it'll dispense a thin mist of whatever liquid is put in. We can try for Battlebrew, if we need to, but that'll be risky-it'd be better if we can find a way to get your spell that countered it into potion form. Ideally, it'd work with only a few minutes of application, but we can't be sure. I'll get Zantix-she's got the most experience with spell-to-potion conversions. If she can't make it work..." he trails off. "Right, Zantix time," he adds as he stands up and heads off.

    "If your spell, concentrated, only worked for forty minutes, how long will the mist be able to give these people their fighting spirit? Are we to fight in a war where we only have an army for forty minutes? And how long will it take for the malaise to effect us? We need some way to push the advantage while we have it," Leff insisted to the others.
    She then spoke to Gafler.
    "Please try and focus through the malaise for a moment. You say you can put spells inside of potions. Could you do the same with Kadör Ahash... ah, Fireball? And could we take a disperser out into their army and then disperse that?"

    "Hmm. Perhaps Zantix will have more clear answers." Leflabah looked up and around a bit, impatience causing the inferno within her to manifest without as some sparks that exit her nose. She could be calm. She would be calm. She was a representative - no, a third - of the Order of the Shining Plume.
    "When do you expect her to be here, anyway?"

    Taking a moment, Gafler gets up, and leads you out of his home. It's a short walk to Zantix's home, where you can see through the open door Garl talking to a gnomish woman-presumably Zantix.

    Garl looks back. "She's been hit bad, yeah," he says.

    Zantix looks over, and you can see that yes, she is in quite a bad way. Her eyes are red and puffy, and she just shakes her head-not really to say no, but more to indicate she doesn't want anyone else around.

    "It must have been an hour by now. If not, then very soon." Variel turned and kneeled down to address Zantix and ignored her mannerisms. He wasn't sure if talking would help, but he decided it couldn't hurt. "I am Variel, a Knight of the Shining Plume. Zantix, the city is besieged and your knowledge may help save it."

    If she seems as unreceptive as the others have, Variel will cast Dispel Magic, provided he has his Warlock spells back.
