The Well of Life

Summary: Samiyah, drawn by some sort of internal compass, goes to Sanguinna. Nicholai surprises her there, letting her know that he has gone to the Mountain and that he has lured out the great Phoenix Nataraja, and she is on the way. They go up into the tree, and discuss the task ahead.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'this is a private room now...as long as no meddling clerics show up'.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'alarm at the falls'.

You say (in common), 'so she is coming here?'.

Nicholai nods.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'I'd rather take her to Loth-lorien'.

Samiyah nods, gazing down at her hand.

You say (in common), 'I have heard of casting meteor swarm, but have not ever done so. I have never gotten a score of it.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'It's great fun if you like level whole towns'.

You shudder from the sheer thought of it.
You say (in common), 'no, i do not think i would like to do such a thing.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'she's one down'.

They meet in Loth-Lorien, and on the way there, Samiyah stumbles upon Nevyn, who is heading there to perform. Mnaramenth joins the in the Inn, and they discuss the possibility of using the Master Bard to fight the Phoenix. They decide against casting meteor swarm. Sami unbinds her hand, which she has had to keep tied up to keep from reaching for the phylactery, and prepares for combat. With help from Teva, the four slay the Phoenix, obtaining the needed key to the Well of Life. Mnaramenth and Teva depart, and Nicholai and Samiyah head to Candlespyre Mountain. There, she realizes she has nothing in which to hold the water. She asks permission to wizard-mark Nicholai, dashes back to Riverhold, and then portals back. A brief discussion of the Crowns occurs, during which Nicholai pokes her for not knowing them, and Sami jumps back at the prodding of his finger, stumbles over the fire pit, and sprawls upon the ground, quite embarrassed. He again details the plan, taking her through it step by step, and they enter the mountain. At the Well, she fills the bucket with water, and obtains three crowns. Nicholai exits the chamber, and she follows. As he leaves, the Phoenix arrives, and attacks Samiyah. The two fight for a moment, with Samiyah grievously wounded as they were not expecting combat and she is completely unprotected. To avoid death, she casts Necroport, and lands back in Sanguinna, where she is nearly slain by a baby bat. They meet back at the tree, and discuss the next steps, and potential repercussions of their collaboration.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'well....'.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'Did I come through?'.

You nod.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'splitting of flows alarm'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'and without divine help'.
Nicholai smiles at himself.

You say (in common), '... I do not know what Seraph will do, for this .. collaboration.. but it is worth it, whatever it is, to destroy the phylactery.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'um...send an angel to outcast you?'.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'oh, he already did that'.

You say (in common), '... do so personally... tear my soul from my body and leave me an empty husk.. which Mayhem would just happily walk into '.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'you did kill Nataraja and you made it into the well and out alive'.

Nicholai invites her to wizard mark him a second time, and then portals to Loth-Lorien. She follows him, and they go down the trunk of the tree and wait. When the Phoenix arrives in the area, Nicholai casts Meteor Swarm. Alas, they are not quite in the right spot, and as he sleeps, Nicholai is annihilated by one of his meteors. The next instant, one strike Samiyah, and she instinctively engages the spell’s caster – savagely kicking Nicholai as he is groggily waking up from the meteor strike. He flees.. and the Phoenix enters. Samiyah fights the great bird a brief moment, again to nearly dire consequence, and flees into the roots, eventually making her way to the Inn. Cresom and Mnaramenth meet them there, and hear the tale of the adventure thus far:

> ch nicholai
Nicholai has looked a lot healthier.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I need a heal or 3'.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'I hit Sami with a rock and then she went crazy on me'.

Samiyah blushes, ducking her head and hiding her face in her hands.

Mnaramenth checks on Nicholai's health.

You say (in common), 'YOU hit yourself with a rock first'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'yes..yes I did'.
Nicholai nods at himself; he must be getting senile.

Once prepared, the four fight the Phoenix. She repeatedly causes them all to flee with fear, but at last, they overcome her. They lose track of a blind and deaf Cresom, but he is eventually found, and they regroup at the Inn.

Cresom says (in common), 'where nich go?'.
Nicholai says (in elven), 'here'.

Cresom says (in common), 'hide'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'sorry, auto hide'.

You say (in common), '.. he is mist.'.

Samiyah turns and looks directly at Nicholai - briefly - for the first time all evening.

Nicholai smiles at you.

She bows, deeply and formally.

You say (in common), 'Thank you for your aid, Sahib Nicholai.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'My pleasure'.

You say (in common), 'I could not have done that.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'it was a bit more reckless than I had planned'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'but we did it'.

You say (in common), 'And I am honored that you were willing to teach me how.'.

Cresom says (in common), 'i was told it couldn't have been done '.
Cresom says (in common), 'not without help'.

You say (in common), 'Seraph told me five times I was going to my death.'.
You say (in common), 'that I was throwing away my eq.'.
You say (in common), 'That I was stupid.'.
You say (in common), '.. he was wrong.'.

Cresom says (in common), 'the bird did kick my ass'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I know some have used their god to teleport them out of the room. I think Mas and Golson used Seraph, if I remember correctly, then they took the Phoenix to molotov, got it to sit on one of the vents and set off the island. But I found the way to do it without divine help'.

Cresom says (in common), 'that is great like i said today vex didn't think that zone was a problem '.
Cresom says (in common), 'but he knew because of mael'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'when I was first recovered from deletion, I went exploring there. I just walked right in and died. So I made it a mission to figure out how to get back in and live. And to think some crotchety old man said I wasn't smart'.
