I gave Columcil an advantage in his dice rolling since he is using holy water and invoking divine assistance. Hopefully this isn't counted as cheating.

Just a reminder to our current scenario that Master Darcy has ward cubes in his sea bag.  I have not thought of a way to introduce the fact (and pending a possible roll of the dice).  A sudden "Hey, looky what I have in my sea bag!  Dice!" does not seem to be the best approach.   ;D

If Darcy agrees to join the rest of us in the attempt to destroy the amulet, we'll discover soon enough that he has shields. Granted, it's not too unusual for a human (which we still assume him to be at this point) to have shields if he's been around Deryni long enough, but that discovery (and telling Darcy about them) might be enough to make him curious about why he has shields, and that could prompt further investigations.  Did Darcy know that the person whose belongings he is carrying in his sea bag was a Deryni?

I didn't read this until after I posted my latest scene, but Aliset discovering Darcy's shields worked out very well for me. 

Darcy knew that his Quartermaster was Deryni, though few of the rest of the crew were aware, and it may be the Captain was not even aware. Mariners can be a very superstitious lot.  The Quartermaster discovered Darcy was Deryni, and that was the reason he took him under his wing.  He taught him nothing about magic but made sure he was educated enough otherwise to rise through the ranks.

If Aliset were to look more closely into Darcy's mind, she would discover expertly set training controls. Darcy comes from a very old Deryni family.  These controls, however, are beginning to weaken over time, and more of Darcy's inherent magic abilities may break through.  Though if we are depending on a roll of the dice for that, it may never happen!   ;D

Maybe we should use the Quartermaster's dice for that roll, then.  I'm sure they're luckier than the dice in the dice roller!

Oh wait, the Quartermaster died, didn't he?  Let's hope it wasn't from rolling those dice....   ;D

Noted. In my experience works like that in the real world too😊

Perfect Revanne.LOL
Well done.
I did intend to make a focused advantage roll of 3d6 once Wash had the blessing. But knowing his luck, I still afraid of messing even that up. If that had happened, I had planned to remove the amulet from the pouch and make a direct strike. That however had it's own risks.  I would have to roll to see if the amulet affected anyone near by before Wash could strike it. Would not that have been fun?

NO? 

It worked out perfectly the way Columcil did it.  Thankyou.

I found it hard to write about the destruction of the smulet because the image that was playing in my mind the whole time was of Ron Weasley destroying the locket horcrux with the sword of Gryffindor. Oops wrong fandom!

Thats too funny. I did not think of that.
KK did not give words to the counterspell that Kelson used to diffuse the Jerraman cyrstal after it had killed Kevin and Bronwyn. But that crystal had been spent of most of its power with only residual magic remaining as Kelson walked in. I figured this crystal was active and needed a stronger form of destruction. The counterspell Wash used would be one that evoked the four archangels and used the blessing of the Lord as its energy source to turn the magic. The dagger then destroyed the gem to keep the magic from returning.

Question: should be bury the gem shards, scatter them in the river, or bring them with us? I am thinking of burying them.

Hm, let's not kill the fish.  ;)  And I don't think we'd want even the last shards of something with a dark taint journeying with us.  Can we bury it, sprinkle the burial site with holy water, and scorch the ground it's under?   ;D

Sounds reasonable.

Not sure why my "sounds reasonable" appeared in an odd place.

 Looks like you clicked inside the quoted section by accident before typing your reply, so it ended up prefacing Laurna's quote. Next time, just make sure you click somewhere after the end quote code (the one that looks like </quote> but in square brackets) before typing.

Thank you.

Comes of typing late at night on my phone with a small screen. #middle-aged problems.

I found a perfect image for Washburn. Check out his character page.

I am in love.
