    Ignatius looks to Manachan.
    Celestial
    " Any thoughts? "


    To Davaulus he says, " I suppose we can move on then. "

    Would it perhaps be better if I/we just used a distinct font when speaking in another language, rather that my sblocking it?
    -Kaodi

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    "I don't like it . . . not at all. Trying experimental cures on those stricken with the blood-veil would, perhaps, be acceptable. But performing these experiments on un-affected citizens?"


    A look of outrage blooms on Manachan's handsome features as he turns to the "good doctor."

    "And from where, pray tell, did these citizens come? I mislike the this abuse of citizens unaffected by the plague, and believe that the Marshall would mislike it as well!

    "Is she aware of the use to which you put these good people?"

    Mhairi grinned as Red tried to resist. "Who says I'd be willing later?" She continued to tug at the ties to his pants, watching his face closely.

    Re: language blocks. I like them in sblocks. I don't read sblocks that aren't addressed to me in some way, so it helps compartmentalise information.

    Doctor Davaulus' sad smile looks almost like a smirk as he responds to Manachan.

    "The Marshal? Her feelings on the matter are irrelevant. I am acting on direct orders from Queen Ileosa to solve the problem of this plague by any means necessary. The momentary discomfort of intransigents and Sczarni thugs is a regrettable but ultimately unimportant matter in the grand scheme of things."

    " Unimportant? " asks the ifrit, eyes flashing with fire as realization dawns on him. " How is it unimportant that you treat people as animals to be tested upon as you wish? How is it, in the 'grand scheme of things' unimportant how we justify what we do? "

    " Perhaps now would be a good time to explain such an unimportant detail as how your physicians' masks have been magically enchanted to protect specifically against the Red Veil, when you claim you do no not understand the disease very well. "

    "I had hoped you were men of vision," says Davaulus sadly. "Consider this. Your Queen wants a perfect city. What better way to achieve perfection than to remove those elements of society that hold it back? The weak, the poor, the undesirables? Will you not help me in this wondrous endeavour?"

    Ignatius grits his teeth and his eyes flare more brightly with inner fire. " Yes, Dr. Davaulus, we will join you in removing the weak of heart, the poor of spirit, and the most undesirable of men. " The ifrit reaches for his blessed morningstar, proclaiming " Defend yourself! "

    Manachan senses the Ifrit's mood - indeed, it mirrors his own closely. He rolls his shoulders, loosening his muscles in preparation for the contest to come. And now we're in it . . . let's hope we're correct! Even if not, I mislike this man. He is . . . broken.

    He prepares his mind, taking his thoughts to that place where he's "stored" the language of his Celestial ancestors, and speaking the arcane words.

    "Biotilleacha a chosaint dom!"

    "Assist me!" cries Dr. Davaulus, stepping back behind the physicians who draw unpleasant looking medical tools from within their long coats and advance menacingly. The doors behind burst open and the two Grey Maidens from the landing are there, swords and shields at the ready. From below comes the sound of running feet.

    Mhairi

    "Well... couldn't hurts," says Red as he sits back to enjoy. Then suddenly his whiskers twitch and he points to the skylight. "Something goings on, looks!" The Maidens and Physicians in the warehouse are moving to the northeast corner, including those on the gantry.


    OOC


    Initiative
    Manachan
    Mhairi
    Ignatius
    Davaulus
    Maidens
    Edmond
    Red
    Physicians

    Manachan and Ignatius have fate on their side - for the duration iof this encounter they gain a +2 bonus to all Consitution-based rolls (so, that would be Fort saves and Concentration then...) and +10 temporary hit points. I'm giving Majenko's Harrow Choosing to Ignatius because, well, one of them is here and the other isn't!

    Manachan's moving even as the good doctor calls for aid. The nimble Aasimar bobs and weaves through the opposition, but they're ready for just such tactics and move quickly to prevent him from reaching his target.

    Actions
    Attempt to close with Dr. Devaulus - unsuccessful, move stops and he provokes AoOs.
