As Emend scried into the vampire's Haven, he saw the bizzare creatures Beats was going in about.

Looking into twilight from there, he saw the gostly shape of Robor laid out on the ground, the sole of one shoe still on fire.

A large spirit, like an odd cross between a star-nosed mole and hippopotamus, sniffed around the area slowly approaching Robor's unconscious form...

"Beats, open a portal back where you came from. I can send Miguel through and he can drag Robor over to this side. Then you can open another portal to the castle and Miguel can drag Robor through that. I don't think we can do anything else for him while he's still in the twilight without Morrowind."

Beats frowns for a second "Aright but be ready for dem when ya see inside" Beats opens the portal, locked to only the deciples and miguel, to on the platform set back a tiny bit from the inferno. He makes it a longer duration one but is ready to force it closed if somthing finds a way of trying to get through.

Emend nods in response to the plan.

"You can try to use your enchanted Cestus to pull him through if Miguel can't manage it," he adds.

As Beats opened his portal, the naked, bloated things without necks screeched an alarm. The other disciples then saw the horrible misshapen creatures - their faces jutting from their round barrel-like chests as they slobbered and champed through wide flat teeth. They  gathered around the portal and battered it with their odd forked limbs, until an angry roar sent them all scurrying away.

Miguel meanwhile, passed through the portal and produced his halberd to drive off the approaching sewer spirit. It didn't appear to want to fight and hurried away.

Hiking Robor over his shoulder, he quickly returned through the portal to set the unconscious disciple down near the Saint. Of course, the Saint (Killer) could only see the blurred outline of his fellow awakened.

"I will have nightmares after this," Miguel said, shaking is head.

As he did so, a massive ape-like mouth and fangs came into view on the other side of the portal - easily twice as large as the magical aperture itself. One of the giant war-ghouls was crouched down, trying to look through the portal. While it had no face proper - it was covered in a myriad of dull eyes randomly sprouting through its skin.

Killer briefly considers making an attempt to control the thing again but decides against wasting resources on something when they're already in a fairly precarious situation with the witches nearby. "Poor creatures. We should put them out of their misery when we can. Too dangerous to leave them in the sewers, don't want to think of what happens if they get into the city."

He looks back at Beats.

"Alright, Robor's on this side now. You can open up the next portal - or we can leave Robor here for now and take him with us when we portal out. This is what, your third portal of the day? You might have some pretty nasty backlash building up."

As Beats was attempting to cast through the portal, it abruptly collapsed.

A nearby gasp, drew the disciples' attention.

"Oh that was strange! Did you see that weird light Harry?" An elderly woman asked her equally elderly husband, as they stepped off the elevator on to this level of the parking garage.

"Just get in the car Ethel," the old man replied, unlocking the doors to a sleek black Mercedes Benz parked nearby.

"I wonder if those nice people saw it too?" The woman protested.

"Haa!" the old man huffed, opening the door for his wife; "Let them be Ethel, it's probably just your new pills again anyway."

As this went on, Beats noticed that his radiation burns were not only failing to go away, but actually seemed to be getting worse.

"Well, Robor is incapacitated, but with Beats we should be able to handle the vampires should they catch on," Emend states, accessing the situation. "I'll keep an eye on them and when they make their move, we'll follow."

Beats swears very very quietly and waves at the old couple, smiling before ducking out of sight of anyone nearby and using his healing abilities to try and cleanse himself of the radiation while leaving the wounds as they are for now (Self purging)

"We gotta get outa sight den I can get us safe." He says

UsdiYona steps into twilight, waves to Miguel with a smile, and carries Robor back to the physical world.

"Do I have to do everything around here? Sheesh! All this hard work is making me hungry again. Can somebody heal him already? I'm gonna need Pepsi and tacos after this. Didn't we pass a taco shack on the way here?" She says with a wry grin.  ;D

As the young Native American girl vanished, only to reapear a moment later with a char-broiled unconscious man in her arms, the woman in the car now driving by, stared - eyes as big as golf balls.

She frantically babbled something to her husband in a histerical panic, only to be met by a roll of the eyes, as the man simple continued driving, to head on down the ramp.

Killer mumbles a spell at the old woman to have her leave (Lizard brain, suppress curiosity, enhance sense of self-preservation).

As Beats healed himself, sudden panicked screams were heard from the car that just passed by. The old woman (already on edge by what she thought she had seen) went completely ape-shit at Killer's spell.

The car swerved abruptly and slammed into another car at the end of the row - only for the woman to flail at the now blocked door, trying to get out.

While the elderly woman smashed at the window, trying to break out in a frenzied panic, her stunned husband tried in vain to calm her down. When her 'flight' mode switched to 'fight' - he opened the door and scrambled out onto the concrete to escape her wrath, crying for help.

"Someone help! My wife has gone crazy! HELP!!!"

The woman meanwhile, climbed out over him and took off running down the ramp - throwing her arms around herself wildly and shrieking manically - as if she was being chased by a swarm of invisible hornets.

"hmm, I should be able to do what Saint and Beats do," UsdiYona says, healing Robor with a newfound power.

"What the hell just happened to that woman?" UsdiYona say with an uncharacteristically darker tone. "Saint, what did you do?!?"

"I used a spell to suppress her sense of curiosity and amplify her sense of self preservation to have her look away instead of continuing to gawk at us, it appears the spell was significantly more potent than I expected and drove her temporarily insane with fear - it's not normally supposed to be so extravagantly effective, especially as I was triggering multiple mental effects at once", Saint explains rather matter-of-factly.

"I'll cancel the spell now, at least she's out of sight and we can heal Robor."

After Usdi heals Robor on her own (much to Killer's delight and surprise), he casts analyze life on both Robor and Beats to make sure that they aren't being afflicted by anything else and are in appropriate condition to go onwards.

The woman stopped running and collapsed to her knees, sobbing.

Robor and Beats appeared fine now.

The old man meanwhile, went to console his wife, while pulling out a cell phone and calling 911.

And now, the team has failed at standing in a parking lot without drawing attention to ourselves. Emend thinks to himself, wondering if there is even anything he can do to keep the disciples on track at this point.

"It seems we can't stay here any longer. Let's move to another location," he states, entering his car. "There should be another parking garage nearby."

Robor opens his eyes with a start. Aftter a few seconds of darting his eyes back and forth to figure out where he is, and whose he with, he stands up.
"Nice." He says with a grin, before scrambling to follow the desciples into the car.
"Where are we going?!?"

"OK, hold on a sec," Usdiyona says to Saint. She then trots down to the crashed car and heals the old lady before coming back to the car and hopping in.

"She'll be fine," she reassured everyone. "I told her not to worry, because angels are real and we are taking care of all the scary stuff."

"The old man said 'Thank You'."  ;D

The disciples piled into the cars and drove to another parking garage a block or two away.

Taking the time to continue scrying out the demon girls at the restaurant, the team observed the four of them finish their meals, down a couple of long island iced teas, and then get up to head into the women's restroom.

There, they shifted back into the Shadow from the physical world - briefly revealing their true form and leaving behind a couple gallons of crimson blood that fell out of the air where they had been standing to splash across the floor in a horrifying mess.

The demons - now gone - had looked like grotesquely emaciated children with ruddy red skin tightly wrapped over their starving skeletal frames. They had charcoal colored cloven feet and no heads to speak of - but rather a long flat tentacle sprouting from between their shoulders that was lined on one side with row upon row of tooth-ringed suction cups.

Just moments after they had vanished, a restaurant server - suspecting that the four girls may have been planning a dine-and-dash - entered the restroom to check up on them.

Her screams could be heard all the way to the front of the restaurant.

"Uhg…" Miquel grunted in disgust; "If that's the demons' blood, why leave it all behind like that?!?"

To the Saint, he added - "At any rate, they passed through my side and right on to the other (back where the horrors lie...)."

"Miguel just said they went to the shadow. They probably have a lot of back up on that side that we can't really deal with."

Killer rubs his temples in frustration.

"I think we should head back to base and plan out our next move. Whoever it was that wanted to buy the heart is probably an extremely dangerous demon if they've got those things as their bodyguards. We need to find out who they are and where they're hiding. Our best bet has to be that sleeper, Robert Swane."

"Strange. I wonder if they understand the way the artifact works, and attempted to react as normal as possible, while still trying to prevent us from following them." Emend says, thinking out loud. He then turns to Saint.

"Regardless, they're clearly a powerful opponent, so I agree. Let's head back for now and plan our next move," he then turns to the remaining three.

"Whoever it was that showed up, was dangerous enough that we had to use the heart. I was hoping we could easily follow the four, but given what they did, it seems too risky to try now."

“Last time I checked those things were just as alive as us. There were some corruptions to their internal structure but I believe that like most other living things they aren’t very big fans of radiation or fire. Hopefully it can do at least part of our job for us, we can’t have monsters like that running around under the city.”

High Oaks Castle; Late Thursday Evening, February 8th 2018

It was beginning to get late, as the disciples finally arrived at High Oaks Castle by car. After settling in and discussing the situation a bit, a plan was hatched to steal Robert Swane's cell phone - the one he had been texting the buyer with at the restaurant.

Scrying out Mr. Swane proved easy, as he had already retired for the evening at his home (and was asleep in his room). The cell phone was charging on a nightstand by the bed and was a simple matter to reach through and take.

Beats carefully opens a small portal and does so, closing it up right after incase it was spotted and hands the phone off to Emend "There ya go, I'll leave the complicated tech part to you if ya don't mind."

Emend nods, and attempts to use his knowledge of forces to hack into the phone. Once he accomplishes that, he retrieves all the info out of it that he can, before attempting to trace where the number the buyer came from (given he was texted during their meeting identifying the number should be easy).

Killer closes his eyes and keeps a spatial map of the castle grounds open to detect intruders. He can't ignore the possibility that the witches were watching Swane and knew about the theft.

Rooting out the info on Robert Swane's phone, Emend saw what he had seen before, plus the number Robert had been texting to.

With a little time on the computer, Emend was able to access Robert Swane's call logs. They appeared to be pretty mundane, being daily interactions between business clients, the office of Blume and Blumenthal, and his wife.

Nothing stood out as unusual, even when Emend spent time rooting out the clients themselves.

Accessing the internet and searching out info on the buyer's number revealed that it was new - as of today - and had only been used for the texting with Mr. Swane and nothing else.

Emend again nods, and attempts to track its current location, going all the way to try and hack the satellite that the phone connected with to send its message.

Amend located the cell phone in an alley near the restaurant they had been at. Looking in, he saw it in the possession of a hobo, who was sleeping in a large cardboard box near a dumpster.
