Gineye sent out some ropes to tie his ogre to the tree before he heard Arwyn shout. His eyes glowed bright red and he cast Misty Step, appearing next to her. He grabbed her shoulder and a horrible hissing growl type sound spilled out of his throat before he misty stepped again, getting her away fron the Ogre. He then summoned his ax, though it seemed different somehow then before he hurled it at the Ogre, the Ax glowing faintly before it sunk handle deep into the monsters chest
Gluttony devoured the heart of the ogre before a very tired sin took over. Sin gagged at the taste in their mouth, trying their damned hardest not to vomit. They put a hand over heir mouth. Ogre tasted rancid. They hated gluttony for doing this. Envy had completely maxed out on strength, and while it was slowly filling up, it left Sin feeling weak and vulnerable.
"It's a luck potion," Zerath said. "One of the many things I want to study is alchemy, potion-making, that kind of thing. This was my first ever successful potion. I kept it on me as sentiment, a reminder of hope that I could make things like this without any discrimination or repercussion one day," Zerath said with a nostalgic sigh. "If it means that much to you, we couldn't possibly take it," Finn said. "No, I insist. You guys gave me the chance to live out my dream. I have no reason for this anymore, I'm free now, thanks to you," Zerath said. He handed the bottle to Avalon.
Arwyn yelped in surprise as Gineye appeared and teleported them away from the ogre. He threw the ax at her ogre and it died on spot, Gineye's aim fair and true. Arwyn totally intended on thanking him later, but for now she instead ran away from him and towards the ogre again. She started searching everywhere for her dagger. Arwyn seemed to be completely frazzled without it, she was breathing hard and on the fringe of an anxiety attack.
The ogre Gineye had blinded yelled from his place, tied up on the tree. "What happening?!" He yelled, "Brothers!?"
(Puppet's character is essentially eight characters, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, but we still haven't found out much about each sin and therefore it's impossible to say whether they're truly overpowered. One of the more major weaknesses this character would have is probably the fact that eight characters in one body, contantly fighting with their different powers, would weaken the vessel a crap ton)
( exactly, as if one reads sins character sheet, I only talk about about sin , but sin has no actual combat prowess, and as seen with envy, even the sins have embodiments. Of course if sin manages to regain their memories this may be a different story, until then, squishy healer it is.)
Gineye made the sound again and stretched his arm out as if he was reaching for his ax. As he raised his arm, the ogre his ax was in turned black, before dissolving into ash, which was quickly absorbed by the ax. The ax then vanished and reappeared in Gineyes grasp before he spun in spot and hurled it at the blinded ogre
Sin collapsed against the tree, breathing in heavily. While gluttonies strength had doubled, sin needed a moment, the switching itself took quite a bit of their energy ,while the depletion of the sins reserves usually exhausted them too.
With envy having been fully depleted
Wrath having been diagnosed off guard, and sloth just in general..sin knew they’d have a migraine pretty soon.
"I'm sure," Zerath said with finality. "And, ah, no offense Finn, but from what I've observed of your teammates, the naga is the only one I trust enough to carry it safely," he smiled sheepishly. "No offense taken, I'd probably burn it," Finn said. Zerath nodded at that and said "I think it's been long enough, we need to head back. If they're hurt, they'll need back up. If they won, they don't know where to find us, and if they died.. well, we need to know," Zerath says. "Oh, don't worry about them finding us, I made a trail so we could find our way back," Finn said. Zerath pondered this, "A trail that could also lead my kin right to us if they won," Zerath says with a frown. Finn gasps, "Oh man, you're right! I-It was a good idea in retrospect.. oh man, oh man," Finn said.
With all of the ogres finally dead, the group was victorious!! Wow, look at our heroes, powerful and cunning and brave. Gineye, a weilder who killed two ogres and helped out his teammate. His teammate, Arwyn, shivering on the ground and quite possibly having an episode. Sin, a little one who defeated a whole ogre via brutal combat choices and who was exhausted, drained, depleted, and every other synonym, against a tree.
Avalon put the potion in a small knapsack he had to keep his map and compass. He said "Thank you very much, my friend. I'll keep it here and use it in an emergency." He then patted Finn back and said "It was a good. Sometimes little oversight like that can get to you and it happens to everyone. Don't let it get you down."
Gineye had his ax absorb the ogre the same way he did the first and then just stood there for a few moments before hos eyes went back to normal. He stumbled slightly and then he walked over to Arwyn "what are you looking for?" he asked, sounding a little tired
"Oh, I won't let it get me down," Finn said with a smile, "There's always a way out of situation, you just gotta believe in yourself," He said, holding up a thumbs up for Avalon. Zerath began his descent down the tree. "We must hurty," he instructed. "R-Right!" Finn said, following after him and trying not to fall. Stupid trees with their stupid flammable leaves and flammable wood.
"I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine," Arwyn said to Gineye. "G-Go help Sin, I'm fine, I got this," Arwyn said. It was such a struggle to actually form comprehensible sentences when she was in this state. She saw a glint of silver in the moonlight and crawled towards it like a hecking demon in horror movies. When Arwyn saw that is was just one of her regular knives, she threw it in anger, bullseyeing it right on the tree the blind ogre had been on. It had been thrown with such force that it buried itself deep in the wood.
