As quickly as my new allies and I are brought together, we were dispersed once more. Bound by a common goal, we search for survivors, gather provisions, and do what we can in the limited time allotted.
A short discussion took place, as each of us spoke to what we could do to offer our assistance, before setting out to scour the city in search of completing the task at hand. Supplies were being unloaded as other groups reconvene on our location. One of the elves within our cadre began to transform, rearranging his body into the form of a wolf, darting off into the city alone.
Several others, a human, dwarf, two half-elves and a tiefling, set off in assisting the evacuation of the tenements. There they dispersed once more as they found several inhabitants still clinging to their homes, and what little they have to claim as their own.
Joshua, a rather large intimidating human, and the tiefling, Damala come into confrontation when they attempted to evacuate an occupied tavern. The bouncer seemed reluctant to leave, and with prejudice toward the tiefling, they were forced to find another means for which they could aid in the situation.
With assistance from an old door man at the inn, the others were successful in evacuating the families and children who were held up inside. Just as they were herding the refugees away, a large explosion toppled through the roof of the building. The Dwarf, Marri, and Half-elves, Yiviansey and Theril rushed to find the cause of the explosive crash in search of any who were caught victim.
Fingers, a rugged human, asked me to assist him as he was fond of procuring items in difficult situations. We happened upon a store most conveniently where we were able to gather tools and supplies to aid in the evacuation effort. Before setting back to the park, the battle overhead came crashing down as a body plummeted to our position. Finding a safer way of travel, Fingers lead us through a drainage system which brought us safely to the park.
In the park fingers scampered off to follow his own agenda, leaving me to drop off the procured necessities. Here Kelwyn returned with a group of refugees and alchemical supplies. Teaming up, we set off in search of any others we could find, where we met up with the dragonborn, Rakir who had little luck in his solo efforts.
Meanwhile at the inn, our 3 comrades found themselves confronted with the cause of the crash, as the body of an unconscious wizard sat against the wall. Much to their surprise they also found the bleeding corpse of an old woman, surrounded by chalk scribbled markings on the floor. A demonic ritual manifesting, Yiviansey quickly eradicated the threat of the waking wizard, hoping to gain some footing for the confrontation most likely to occur. Not to mention there were sounds of disturbance behind a closed door nearby, she had certainly made the proper choice as their situation was about to turn worse.
