  1. The trio finds themselves all collected in a field, a square, or wherever it was that Adonis had planned to open up his first portal. Preparations are made within the air as the magic spreads and the tug of the lifestream can be felt..
  2.  
  3. Adonis, feel free to set the scene further with your destination in mind. The others may RP before the next post as well.
  4.  
  5. It was supposed to be a simple trip.
  6.  
  7. An exercise to show how far he had come in his lessons and training. With the basics and even intermediate lessons for the art of Wayfinding taken care of, the next step was to actually Wayfind!
  8.  
  9. And with Nym's time occupied by a certain Ultovex, he had to find others to show off to. Naturally, Siegfried was at the top of that list. With a charming smile on his face, the blonde twists his wrists to create the massive green circle that had become the first step to his art.
  10.  
  11. Supporting glyphs come after, and before long, all the makings of an average portal are there and glowing - begging to be utilized.
  12.  
  13. " Mmn… alright! I think this should do it. Are ya ready? "
  14. (Adonis Lowe)
  15.  
  16. Siegfried, completely across the continent from the others, sitting in his room within Niklaus and Taiga's-
  17.  
  18. No, Adrian's home.
  19.  
  20. The rune looks picture perfect to what he's seen etched in the book, atleast as far as he can tell in the dark room where he's been huddled over candlelight for the last many moons, trying and failing to replicate what he'd seen. The glyphs, as is warned in chapter 8, can result in being sent wildly off-course if there's the slightest miscalculation, but if he's right, well, he hasn't miscalculated.
  21.  
  22. How could he, Siegfried, Agartha's greatest fuck-up and aspiring alcoholic and depressed swordsman possibly fuck up, like he'd fucked up his love life, social life, family life...
  23.  
  24. You get the point.
  25.  
  26. A connection to the physical and spirit world is formed via the Glyph. Siegfried is unfamiliar with runeweaving on its own, but he takes his time with this step, taking special, delicate care to start small. The Magic Circle is formed as instructed, and the glyphs, sub-commands,
  27.  
  28. Conversion. He dissipates into pure mana - the sensation isn't that alien. Strange, but for one so adept at molding mana in it's rawest state, energy magic, it comes quicker than it arguably would some. Since his teenage years, he has refined his control.
  29.  
  30. The magic circle previews a large castle. In his haziness, it makes perfect sense. The destination was a few kilometers to the east - Reimara Academy, a large, standing castle that he'd occupied for his teenage years, running around with a gaggle of rambunctious youth.
  31.  
  32. Everything seemed up and running, so it became time to dive on in.
  33.  
  34.  
  35. ..
  36.  
  37. Except it doesn't work.
  38.  
  39. Siegfried can't figure out why the hell it doesn't work, but he's intent on figuring it out.
  40.  
  41. ---
  42.  
  43. And so, the boy winds up in the company of Adonis Lowe, his young protégé. The boy'd also come across a wayfinding tome, and while his junior, was far more experienced in runescribing. The kid has a much easier time getting a portal up and running, or atleast, so it seems...
  44.  
  45. ---
  46.  
  47. "Damn. I couldn't get this shit operating for the life of me," he admits.
  48.  
  49. The boy stares into Adonis's portal for some time, blinking, again and again. This kid was 17, and he'd taken to this like a fish out of water. He'd said again and again that he was simply untalented when it came to magical adaptation, and things that others learned in breakneck pace took him years, but this..?
  50.  
  51. Heavens.
  52.  
  53. "To adventure, my boy."
  54.  
  55. Siegfried raises up his bottle, saluting seemingly the heavens above, and then chugs down a large amount of alcohol. It spills down his chin and strikes Godfrey's shirt underneath his jacket. The lad smirks, wipes at his mouth with the back of his hand, and then dives in, shouting his signature catch phrase:
  56.  
  57. "BOOOOOOOOOONZAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!"
  58.  
  59. (Siegfried)
  60.  
  61.  
  62. The green circle twists in the air as Adonis twists his wrists and inverts the lifestream in front of them. Strands and collections of green light start to glow as the circle appears. Glyphs mark themselves one by one, and when it starts to open there's a faint breeze that can be felt from the portal but not the air around them.
  63.  
  64. It begins to open, green magic swirling in the circle as a path looked cut and clear. An abandoned brothel on the far side of Agartha hidden in some of Dusk's fallen ruins. That was the easiest shoot in the world, right?
  65.  
  66. As Siegfried leaps forward into that portal? The glphys start to wane and flicker.
  67.  
  68. Roll a D20!! Adonis, roll as well if you leap forward.
  69.  
  70. Adonis follows suit, prepared for the worst but hoping for the best!
  71. (Adonis Lowe)
  72.  
  73. Adonis Lowe; Your portal holds up. It absolutely and perfectly comes up when you cast the glyphs and morph the mana in the air. So when Siegfried went to leap forward, he's send on a trip. The runes all start to dial and turn in accordance to the point they look like knobs and gears.
  74.  
  75. As the two of you go into the portal, Adonis finds himself navigating and trailing through the millions of different strands within the lifestream. They were not cutting it open, or tearing through it. They were moving through veins of life as if they were but single cells of blood. Colors wash over their vision as a rainbow of all visible shades and hues washes over them.
  76.  
  77. One small miscalculation and they'd be off track horrendously. Since the stream lead to everything? They could access it with rerouting, or detouring. Regardless, Adonis had made the perfect portal. Beginner's luck, or so they say.
  78.  
  79. .. A separate green rift opens up near the eastern flank of the Dusk ruins..
  80.  
  81. And the both of them land. Siegfried lands on his ass, whilst Adonis lands on his feet. Clothes and hair as perfect and poised as ever.
  82.  
  83. Siegfried tucks and rolls, landing harshly, but managing to keep his bottle intact and in hand. To celebrate, he takes yet another sip of that bottle.
  84.  
  85. On the way, he'd glimpsed the lifestream. Gorgeous and radiant as he remembered it, scenery that, transcendent of the physical world as it was, would still always remind him of things less breathtaking. Things more human than angel. Taiga's smile as they braved into the unknown, Ethan's mischievous smirk as he sent him careening through a portal...
  86.  
  87. And now they were dead, and all there was was him, and Adonis, the next generation of Wayfinders, paving the ways to new pastures - literally and figuratively.
  88.  
  89. And right now, that younger amateur was standing tall and pretty, stepping after him relatively unscathed as he tumbles gracelessly. His ego tells him that this is due to Siegfried having absorbed the initial vertigo for him, baring the burden for the two of them, or some other complete nonsense.
  90.  
  91. This was quite doubtful, but preserved his pride for now.
  92.  
  93. "Ya' did it!" He cackles, standing up and dusting himself off with one hand. "Ya' did it...oh yeah, Adonis, you're the-"
  94.  
  95. Pause.
  96.  
  97. "Where the hell is this?"
  98. (Siegfried)
  99.  
  100. Beginner's luck indeed.
  101.  
  102. Despite pushing himself day after day to learn the various ins and outs of the art, Lowe wasn't entirely confident in his ability to put that into practice. A single bead of sweat rolls down the side of his face as he leaps forward after Siegfried, hoping that everything would go according to plan.
  103.  
  104. And it does.
  105.  
  106. For the first time in a long time, there is a genuine, wholesome smile on the boy's face as he leaps through the Lifestream. Traveling alongside the various threads while coated in a green light that doesn't seem to impede his speed at all.
  107.  
  108. And out they go, arriving on the other side of the ruins with his golden hair still in perfect condition.
  109.  
  110. That smile wouldn't die down anytime soon.
  111.  
  112. " Textbook. We're looking for an abandoned shack that Artaghh told me about once. It-- " He stops to make sure that Siegfried is alright, offering him a hand up. " He said that some of the most beautiful women around used to be there when he was young. I can't imagine that it's held up too well, but I figured this might be a good way to catch up.
  113.  
  114. We've been worried about you. "
  115. (Adonis Lowe)
  116.  
  117. As the two of them land and Adonis starts to chat with Siegfried, something in rubble a few meters into the city starts to rustle and move about. Something is here, though it doesn't seem like a threat or particularly invested in the rather large entrance they had.
  118.  
  119. Now that they were in Dusk's ruins, faint motes of fog can be seen rolling in from the ocean behind them as they're left to look out across the ridge. It's cool.. Perhaps a little too cool. They'd have some time to talk as they looked for the shack.
  120.  
  121. [Roll a D20 and ping me when you're ready to continue and have finished interactions.]
  122.  
  123. There was a lot to talk about! But he knew it would be best to take it all in strides.
  124.  
  125. " For starters... Clara isn't dead. " He lets the words sink in as they move east, making their way through the outskirts of the ruined city with rubble.
  126.  
  127. " Well. She is. But she isn't. How much do you know about Sors' ability to claim souls? "
  128.  
  129. Adonis is still very much alert as they go, but it is possible that he overlooks something while occasionally glancing to Siegfried.
  130. (Adonis Lowe)
  131.  
  132. "Mertaisyl told me that. Then she vanished."
  133.  
  134. The news that Clara wasn't actually dead doesn't startle him only because Calael and Mertaisyl had warned him. He's had weeks, months now to digest everything.
  135.  
  136. "I don't know anything about it. Whenever Clara tried to talk to me about somethin' serious..."
  137.  
  138. Siegfried just drinks from the damn bottle again.
  139.  
  140. He's also on edge, surprisingly so, at that. His eyes scan the shadows, seeming ready to, at any moment, attack him. He was very paranoid nowadays...being on the roads all this time had done that to him. He didn't have the same boyish charm that he used to.
  141.  
  142. Things were prone to attacking him, nowadays.
  143.  
  144. "Adonis, if Clara's not...Clara anymore," it seems like it is tearing him the hell apart to talk about this, "I..."
  145.  
  146. Kraus damn it.
  147.  
  148. Pull yourself together, Siegfried.
  149. (Siegfried)
  150.  
  151. Adonis can't notice a damn thing, so the conversation continues for a time. As they're speaking about the morbid tune of Clara's fate now, the figure in the rubble starts to rise as Siegfried catches it out of the corner of his eye. Two silver glints shine in the sun's light as the fog started to grow heavier.
  152.  
  153. .. Two rings rested on his hand, and he cackles as he picks up what looks like golden coins from the mess. He starts to turn to the north, moving to go for a building that looked half destroyed. Upon narrowing his eyes, Adonis catches onto the building as well.
  154.  
  155. It matches up with what Artaghh described in the very least. The Spirit's Hourglass.
  156.  
  157. P-Promiscuous?
  158.  
  159. And there it was.
  160.  
  161. Lacking all of the women and festivities that the Commander mentioned, but it was still standing. Mostly.
  162.  
  163. With his stunted vision, he couldn't see the figure with the rings. But he could see that Siegfried was hurting. His expression sours a bit, remembering how the Ultovex wanted Nym to also get her soul snatched by him.
  164.  
  165. Sold to her own father.
  166.  
  167. He had run over the same thoughts Siegfried had, for sure.
  168.  
  169. " I know. I know. And she'll never be the same, unfortunately. But the only real way to free her is to. Well... "
  170.  
  171. He already knows the answer. Adonis moves torwards the fog and the Spirit's Hourglass, hoping to arrive at the entrance soon.
  172. (Adonis Lowe)
  173.  
  174.  
  175. Siegfried just kind of stares, questioningly, at what looms ahead of them. He doesn't verbally warn Adonis, instead just staring at it without speaking and hoping that the youth himself notices it.
  176.  
  177. The conversation topic from Adonis brings him back to reality. It's rare nowadays, for that omnipresent smirk to be wiped from his face, but this is seriously bumming him the fuck out. Every word Adonis speak seems to visibly age him.
  178.  
  179. And then, he just kind of looks at the Spirit's Hourglass.
  180.  
  181. "What kind of place did you say this was?" He asks, abruptly changing the topic.
  182.  
  183. He's right behind the kid.
  184. (Siegfried)
  185.  
  186.  
  187. Adonis Lowe says, "A brothel."
  188. Adonis puts on a shit-eating grin.
  189. (Adonis Lowe)
  190.  
  191.  
  192. Siegfried says, "..."
  193.  
  194. Siegfried says, "Rock on."
  195. As they go to approach the brothel at the far end of Dusk, it's missing a lot to it. When the allies hit Dusk, they didn't discriminate. The sign is hanging off of it and swaying.. In front of the door, an absolutely massive amount of rubble lay completely and utterly preventing them from entering.
  196.  
  197. They can -hear- something inside. Now if only the duo had a method of transportation between two locations. The hooded figure with the rings is nowhere to be found.
  198.  
  199.  
  200. Adonis Lowe says, "Mmn..."
  201. " How well versed are you when it comes to the chapter on territory? "
  202.  
  203. Hopefully he would understand what Adonis was getting at.
  204.  
  205. His hand raises up and the wrist twists to the right, conjuring green energy that takes the shape of a large circle. The supporting runes twirl and lock, only to create a whispy projection of a nearby location - inside of the house.
  206.  
  207. It was primarily used to place 'bookmarks' and mark locations, but it had other uses as well.
  208.  
  209. " We can bypass the rubble just by making a portal here. " Eventually he speaks up, walking forward to drag his fingers on the outside of the structure. The supporting runes could do the heavy lifting, and due to the short distance, it would even take much mana.
  210.  
  211. " We can turn it into a competition, you know? Watch this! "
  212.  
  213. Once the brief step of interpolation is made use of, he prepares to slide through. It was from Chapter 12 - warper magic. Placing the destination close by, rather than making it a constant stream from point A to B.
  214.  
  215. It was risky, but he had to see what was inside, if anything.
  216. (Adonis Lowe)
  217.  
  218. There's nothing for Siegfried to do here but wait for Adonis to go ahead and pave the way, for the most part.
  219.  
  220. And so he just kind of rests on his laurels for the moment.
  221.  
  222. Until the lad suggested that they make it a competition. Siegfried gets a kick out of that.
  223.  
  224. For a minute, he remembers what it's like to be young and full of that spark of life again.
  225.  
  226. His hands work, the tip of his finger alight with a spectral blue light. A manic grin spreads across his face, and then he begins to work - the runes he forges are identical to Adonis's. They're moving damn near in sync, and that's when he realizes what his work had been missing, locked away in a dark room, why Adonis has been soaring when Siegfried struggles so...
  227.  
  228. ---
  229.  
  230. The two of them moving side-by-side, emanating with light.
  231.  
  232. It's the voice of the angels, it's the motion of the soul.
  233.  
  234. ---
  235.  
  236. Collaborating, it was a wonder now, to see which of them would successfully coerce pure mana and flow with the lifestream forward and into the building.
  237.  
  238. And to see what they'd find within.
  239. (Siegfried)
  240.  
  241. The two of them work dilligently upon the runes and inner workings of the magic itself. Wayfinding was a tad bit harder than Riftmancy, and to be honest? It required a lot of set up. Runes and glyphs coil together and turn like the gears on a well oiled machine.
  242.  
  243. And now - A rift appears that very simply gets them past the rubble inside. It's taxing on their mana, but thankfully it closes when they're inside. And what do they find..?
  244.  
  245. .. Lights are on, the building itself seemed to be in tact. There is dancing music, a few pairs of bras and panties hanging up on a nearby rack that have long since gone abandoned. For whatever reason.. It didn't seem all that abandoned.
  246.  
  247. There is much more fog inside of here than outside - And it's easily recognizable as some kind of energy mist by the two energy magi. Now things get weird.
  248.  
  249. Footsteps can be heard, laughs are audible. It's then when the spirit of a pale, white woman walks across the main hall in nothing but her underwear. Leaning forward and blowing a kiss to some hidden person down a hallway before running off towards him.
  250.  
  251. Jiggles and motions and all. What was going on here...? More laughter and other noises can be heard from closed doors, but no shadows dance below the doors.
  252.  
  253. .. Spirits?
  254.  
  255.  
  256. Siegfried says, "...Oh."
  257.  
  258. Siegfried says, "OH."
  259.  
  260. Adonis Lowe says, "...."
  261. The moment they arrive, Adonis raises a hand up to smooth out and fluff up his hair.
  262.  
  263. If there were ladies present - a fact made evident by the interior décor of the 'lively' joint, then he needed to look his best.
  264.  
  265. For their sake, not his own.
  266.  
  267. Sapphire eyes watch with a great deal of interest as the spirit-like form bounces across the lobby. " This is my kind of place. Even if it has a bit of a fog to it. " He slows down and squints down the hallway in the direction of her blown kiss, only to start paying attention to the energy-like mist around them.
  268.  
  269. " But somethin' ain't right. We better follow her to find out what the deal is. "
  270.  
  271. Yeah. JUST to get to the bottom of things.
  272.  
  273. Despite the eerie feeling in the establishment, he cannot help but grin a bit.
  274. (Adonis Lowe)
  275.  
  276. Their tandem efforts work, and for the first time, Siegfried proceeds through a portal that he's collaborated in forming. He doesn't really get the time to revel in the accomplishment though.
  277.  
  278. Siegfried doesn't make any kind of motion to proceed into any of the rooms here. Could he? Was it ethical to pursue ghost skirt when he had an undead girlfriend? Was she even his girlfriend if she was undead?
  279.  
  280. Actually, no. He wasn't going to entertain this notion. Until confirmed with her walking corpse, he was single. But regardless, he wasn't in the market for spirit tail.
  281.  
  282. "Well, Adonis, it's high time you became a man," he says sagely, stroking at the stubble on his chin.
  283.  
  284. He claps the boy on the shoulders, nudging him forward.
  285.  
  286. "You're what...twenty one?"
  287.  
  288. But Adonis is able to completely flip the tables on him. The boy is utterly unshaken. Oh no.
  289.  
  290. The teenaged accomplice is supposed to be mortified at the mention of sex.
  291.  
  292. "I...uh...I cannot do that, Adonis. Tell you what. Open the door. Tell me what is within. If you need me.."
  293.  
  294. The grown man pauses.
  295.  
  296. "Whistle twice, and think good thoughts."
  297. (Siegfried)
  298.  
  299. You cannot gain more RPP today but you can continue to gain Activity Points for future checks. You currently do not qualify for an RPP reward in the upcoming check.
  300.  
  301. When the hand clamps down on his shoulder, Adonis snaps out of his trance.
  302.  
  303. It had been quite some time since Seigfried had the time to talk and hangout with the youth, hadn't it? The last time he saw the pretty boy, he was just a troublemaker.
  304.  
  305. But recently, he had been officially dubbed a full-blown womanizer. A title that didn't actually concern him all that much, oddly enough.
  306.  
  307. " Come on, Siggy! We gotta live a little. What happens in the ruins, stays in the ruins? No? Alright. We'll keep it clean. "
  308.  
  309. He really was a stinker.
  310.  
  311. Moving down the hallway, he aims to follow the spirit to the closed door and knock a couple of times.
  312.  
  313. " Hey, uh... think you can help me? I need a mirror to style my hair - but looking into your eyes might be just as good. "
  314.  
  315. Damn.
  316. (Adonis Lowe)
  317.  
  318. The knock is met with a collective gasp from two people inside of the room. There's slow footsteps at first before the door slowly creaks open. Inside the room is the dark hooded man - Two fingers on his fingers as he grins and points a finger gun towards Adonis.
  319.  
  320. The spiritual woman is at the front of the door was it was opened, staring back at Adonis for a time with a surprised expression. She shakes her head, "You look a little young, sweetie." A hand comes down atop Adonis' head before the voice calls out behind.
  321.  
  322. "Close the door, Rosanne. It's our time, ah?" At the tip of the finger gun, red lightning seemed to have formed.
  323.  
  324. The door closes.
  325.  
  326. Oh fuck.
  327.  
  328. Siegfried realizes immediately that he's let young Adonis make a terrible mistake, so his next move is to take a running start, a series of phantasmal images trailing in his wake from the velocity with which he's able to fire himself off from the ground. Having mastered energy transmission to the point he no longer made a visible aura, he slams his whole body into the door, trying to come crashing in...
  329.  
  330. At the risk of saving Adonis from nothing at all.
  331.  
  332. Better safe than sorry, right?
  333.  
  334. "UNHAND HIM, WHORES!"
  335. (Siegfried)
  336.  
  337. … A little young?
  338.  
  339. Probably.
  340.  
  341. But for some reason, Adonis doesn't walk away. There was something about not getting his way with his charm that set Adonis off. He puts his foot in the door to keep it from closing, only for Siegfried to burst forward and smash into the doorway to be his hero.
  342.  
  343. … Phew. He didn't have to play the absolute villain to get his way this time around.
  344.  
  345. " Siegfried, he's gonna' hurt her with the red lightning! We gotta do something! "
  346.  
  347. There's a shit-eating grin on his face as he remains behind his companion and a golden aura of energy explodes out around him.
  348.  
  349. This time, he points his index finger at the man with two rings, and golden energy forms at the tip.
  350.  
  351. Nobody told Adonis 'no'.
  352. (Adonis Lowe)
  353.  
  354. UNHAND HIM.
  355.  
  356. The screaming alerts the whole brothel as there's a gasp from the room they were desperate to slam into. When Siegfried charges into the door and snaps it right off its fucking hinges, it blows up into splinters and collapses right ontop of the blonde spirit. Her thick body keeps herself from too much damage, but otherwise there's this look of bewilderment in the hooded man's eyes. Oh no.
  357.  
  358. His body cloaks up in red lightning now, charging himself for an attack.
  359.  
  360. "What the hell is ya' problem!? Ya' downed my woman!" The rings shine in the sunlight, seeping in through the cracks.
  361.  
  362. Siegfried stands there, wreathed in astral fuckfire, the raw energy magic for which his body was a conduit sending the winds a flurry around his impressive stature. He genuinely looks like the hero out of a comic book pan-
  363.  
  364. Wait a second.
  365.  
  366. "Wait, I didn't mean to cramp your style," he points out, sweating. "You can go ahead and do your thing. That's your woman? All good, man, all good."
  367.  
  368. Siegfried moves over, quickly, utilizing his vast speed. His hand moves down to begin picking wood splinters out of the woman's cleavage.
  369.  
  370. "I'll clean her off for you, man, make it like we were never here, alright? Jus' calm down."
  371. (Siegfried)
  372.  
  373.  
  374. Swan says, "Y-YOU'RE DIGGIN' INTO-"
  375. With the shift in plans, Adonis adapts.
  376.  
  377. Making his way further into the room, one hand raises up and the other moves to start brushing off debris from the woman's thighs while Siegfried works on the upper half.
  378.  
  379. " Yeah, sorry! If we would have known... " His other hand drops to help brush the wooden chunks out, and his head tilts. " Wait, do you moisturize? Your skin is silky smooth, girl! "
  380.  
  381. He could hardly believe it.
  382. (Adonis Lowe)
  383.  
  384. "YA' GROPIN' ROSANNE-" The woman below though? She didn't seem to have a single problem in the world. The two-ringed man points his palms at both Adonis and Siegfried and fires hellstorm from his palm at the two of them.
  385.  
  386. No, really. Rosanne looked like she hadn't had a whole lot of excitement in her life. Swan leaped forward with full intent to drive a boot into Adonis' gut. Rosanne's cheeks are red, but otherwise- Well.
  387.  
  388. They had "other" things to focus on.
  389.  
  390. His sword moves in a flash to intercept the blow that's intended to land in Adonis's gut, and then transition seamlessly into an elbow strike, countering the blow.
  391.  
  392. He would be Adonis's shield, for this battle, and the lad his backline nuker, in traditional RPG fashion.
  393.  
  394. And here...
  395.  
  396. We...
  397.  
  398. Go.
  399. (Siegfried)
  400.  
  401. You cannot gain more RPP today but you can continue to gain Activity Points for future checks. You currently do not qualify for an RPP reward in the upcoming check.
  402.  
  403. " Fuck- "
  404.  
  405. Siegfried saved him.
  406.  
  407. But he couldn't let him do all the work.
  408.  
  409. That brilliant aura of gold erupts around him once more, and he aims to ignite the battle in their favor.
  410. (Adonis Lowe)
  411.  
  412.  
  413. Siegfried says, "why is that literally ssj2 lol"

  519.  
  520. Escaping Light [DM] drops Ethereal Ring.
  521.  
  522. Escaping Light [DM] drops Ethereal Ring.
  523.  
  524. Adonis Lowe picks up Ethereal Ring.
  525.  
  526. You pick up Ethereal Ring.
  527.  
  528.  
  529.  
  530.  
  531. You have received an INJURY:
  532.  
  533. Name: "Hellstorm Burns"
  534.  
  535. Desc: Across his chest and arms, long and sharp burns have been made into the man's skin. Occult magic can be felt from the lightning burns.
  536.  
  537. Inflictor: Escaping Light [DM]
  538.  
  539. Class: TEMPORARY
  540.  
  541. Duration: Medium (4 days) (-20% VIT)
  542.  
  543.  
  544.  
  545. Siegfried, working in tandem with Adonis, is able to land a series of devastating combinations on the man. Whenever it was that Adonis created an opening, he was able to capitalize, blurring in to capitalize on those precious seconds during which the teen landed a debilitating blow by following it up with vicious, bone-shattering strikes.
  546.  
  547. Ultimately, after a montage of picture-esque moments ranging from cosmic bolts launching him off his feet and Siegfried appearing behind him to ping-pong the man into another, him being launched into the air and Siegfried smacking him back down to earth...
  548.  
  549. They ultimately prove victorious, and he's even got a pretty new ring for his troubles. He slips that bitch on his finger, and it gleams.
  550.  
  551. "Phew. You're free to go, Roseann...y'know, unless, this is your thing. I won't judge."
  552.  
  553. And then he turns to Adonis.
  554.  
  555. "Y'know...could always uh..."
  556.  
  557. He looks between the youth, and Roseann.
  558.  
  559. The boy, and the girl.
  560.  
  561. He winks, and then steps out of the room, whistling a tune.
  562. (Siegfried)
  563.  
  564. You cannot gain more RPP today but you can continue to gain Activity Points for future checks. You currently do not qualify for an RPP reward in the upcoming check.
  565.  
  566. It hurts every bit as badly as he figured it would.
  567.  
  568. What starts off as a dangerous situation escalates to a bout for survival as the two go toe to toe with the hellstorm magi in the close quarters of the brothel room.
  569.  
  570. Try as he might to keep up with the two older combatants, Adonis finds himself falling victim to the overpowering force of occult and lightning time and time again.
  571.  
  572. Getting thrown across the room.
  573. Getting tossed into the cleavage of the blushing woman.
  574. It seemed like he was a ragdoll partially until Sigfried made it known that they would begin a final assault.
  575.  
  576. Bursting forward, he steps out to toss a powerful blast of golden energy at the offender, practically overkilling it for the sake of a dramatic finish.
  577.  
  578. " Naaaah. Nym's the one for me. Thank you for your time though, Ma'm. "
  579.  
  580. Roll credits.
  581. (Adonis Lowe)
  582.  
  583.  
  584. Siegfried says, "Adonis. Take me to Clara."
  585.  
  586. Adonis Lowe says, "Not sure if I can. But if you hang around long enough, she'll show up."
  587.  
  588. Siegfried asks, "Eh? You don' know where she is?"
  589.  
  590. Adonis Lowe says, "Not really."
  591.  
  592. Siegfried asks, "Then where'd you see 'er?"
  593.  
  594. Adonis Lowe says, "Like I said, hang around in the north for a while."
  595.  
  596. Adonis Lowe says, "Come on."
