Envy quickly started to change the face and body of the ogre, and finished by changing his scent, smiling at their work.
They cast a powerful illusion of a dead ogre. They breathed heavily. “...t that took a lot more out of me than expected.”
Finn went up to Sin and offered them an arm to lean on.
Zerath thanked Sin, just as an ogre came tumbling into view through the trees. Zerath's trap, whatever it was, had done quite a number on him. Two more ogres followed behind him, all three big and intimidating. They were wearing raggeth clothes on their bodies and angry expressions on their faces.
"Where's Zerath?!" The first one demanded loudly, but then the one beside him elbowed him and pointed to the 'dead' Zerath. They growled and two started to hold up their clubs, one held up a flail. The ogres looked to the group for an explanation.
"Who?" Arwyn asked, quite convincingly. She was rather calm about this whole situation. "Look dude, me and my crew just wandered here and it looks like this ogre died a while ago."
Envy remained silent, leaning on Finn. Trying to stay conscious , because the minute they lost consciousness, the illusion would vanish, and then the ogres would know that Zerath wasn’t actually dead.
( it’s your call if envy is able to stay awake, Kat.)
Arwyn looked over at the 'dead' ogre, and she could swear that the illusion flickered. This was bad, Sin was getting too weak to hold up the illusion for long. The ogres seemed to be more focused on the group, though, so they didn't notice it.
"No .. kill?" The ogre asked.
"Are you asking if we killed him or are you suggesting that you're disappointed that you didn't get to kill anyone?" Arwyn asked, walking forward, dangerously close to the ogres.
"No kill," the ogre repeated, not understanding the white haired fae.
"How about this: let's strike a deal," Arwyn said, still walking. She walked right through the group of ogres till she was behind them, and they turned around to face her, not caring anymore for Zerath.
"Deal?" One of the ogres asked, a word they could finally understand.
While this was going on, Finn gaave Arwyn worried looks. What was she planning? Then he caught Sin in surprise as they passed out, and the illusion fizzed away. "Oh no," he whispered. He looked at Arwyn, who was entertaining the ogres by rambling on about trade and marketing. They were still facing her, they didn't see the illusion disappear.
Arwyn made hand motions towards the group for them to run while the ogres had their backs turned. Finn couldn't believe this! Arwyn was trying to face off against three fully grown ogres while they ran, in order to protect them. He hesitated of course, he looked at Avalon and Gineye.
Gineye noticed the illusion disappearing and realised what Arwyn was planning. However, instead of fleeing, Gineye walked up next to Arwyn and put a hand on her shoulder, silently casting Haste on her as hos eyes started glowing and swords started forming in the air behind the group of ogres
Sin’s hand moved to their eyepatch, as it lit up with a blinding flash of wrath.
Wrath stood up, and walked over to Arwyn and Gineye. Wrath scowled, having been summoned as a reflex when one part of their magic reserves became completely drained.
Wrath’s arms became covered in shadows, long claws extended, ready to fight.
Zerath followed Avalon. After all those years of trying to get away, he wasn't going to waste a chance like this. Finn stood still, then Sin suddenly picked themselves up and walked over to Arwyn and Gineye with shadow arms in tow. Finn was even more indecisive now, his group had been split into two!
As Finn was torn in conflict, the ogres, as dumb as they were, noticed when Wrath came walking towards them, arms in a threatening stance.. and then Gineye's swords behind them. The roared in anger and readied their clubs. "Sabotage!" One shrieked, pointing at the place Zerath's 'dead body' had been. Probably the largest word they knew.
"Gineye, Sin, choose an ogre, one for each of us," Arwyn said, immediately getting in a fighting stance and more rejuvenated than ever thanks to Gineye's haste spell. The ogres ran at them.
Finn had decided to follow Avalon and Zerath, though along the way he lit little balls of fire and had them float in place, so they wouldn't get lost on their way back. He wished he could've helped more, but if he attempted to fight the ogres, Finn would cause more damage than actually help.
Gineye cackled, his eyes glowing red as all of the swords spun in mid air to point at the closest Ogre to Gineye "if you insist~ Hang Mans Harrowing" he said, his voice becoming distorted towards the end. At his words the swords shot into the ogre with enough force to pierce completely through it before the blades vanished and Gineye charged forward, summoning his Ax
Wrath grinned. “ Now you’re talking.” They snarled as they jumped at an ogre, bringing the arms down on its head with a force so strong, that it shouldn’t belong to a child.
Wrath closed their eyes, and reopened matching eyes , blazing with the fury of lions.
Wrath formed a sword of shadows and shoved it into the ogres shoulder, jumping on the handle to push it down as they grabbed the swords hilt in their feet and pushed themselves off the ogre, using the momentum to sever the ogres arm.
