Festag 10 Nachexen
Kadfina awakens in the middle of the night, stabbed by a pulsing hot icicle. Looking around the room she can see nothing – no-one in the room, and no blood or wounds on her body. As she staggers to her feet she is struck again, and calls out for Andred.
Andred slowly wakens, and Kadfina, feeling even more pain yet being unable to see her assailant, flees the room. Upon crossing the threshold, she falls, as she feels even more pain, as though a red-hot sword was being pulled out of her stomach. However, within seconds, the pain has ceased.
Andred is struck, and using the light from the hallway, also flees, feeling the same inexplicable pain. They hammer on Gard and Detlef’s door while the other occupants of the Inn start to shout out that they be quiet.
Detlef, armoured up, checks the room, and sees a horrendous cloud of screaming faces in the reflection of the room, but not in the room itself. He is struck with fear, but the Daemon, for some reason, cannot reach him. He runs back to the room and the heroes (minus Gard, asleep in the arms of a serving wench somewhere) discuss what to do.
Finally, in testing one of their theories, Andred takes with an axe to the bureau in Gard and Detlef’s room and use the chopped free mirror to look into Andred’s and Kadfina’s room. Sure enough, they can see the Daemon in that mirror as well. Kadfina throws a knife at the Daemon and seems to injure it in some way, so Andred borrows Gard’s bow, and without stepping into the room, shoots the creature until it disappears in a cacophony of howls.
They then gather their gear, and wonder where Gard is, while the Innkeeper brings the Watch. As the Watch explore the crime scene, and inquire of the events, the Innkeeper goes to find Gard (as he has some inkling of where he may be).
Little sleep is likely for the remainder of this night…
