>>Any cultists that I run into unexpectedly while doing this are targets of opportunity and should be beaten into the ground.

> Four left.
Leave at least one.
Probably aim for two in case the others get too trigger happy.

563-05-12
Night

~~~

The Captain rushes out of the building, looking around and spotting four of the cultists grouping up. She rushes towards them while Kanas hunkers down inside and Diamond sprinkles the doorway with sulphur.

Langley and Maxim are already on their way, however, taking advantage of the cultist’s reloading effort to close the distance.

The rapier is the first to strike yet again, its fencer driving the steel through a cultist’s eye and mincing what’s behind it, while Maxim and the Captain each beat down a cultist of their own.

The final cultist manages to reload in time and fires his weapon, only for the bolt to be swatted aside by Sei’s reinforced arm. Realizing that the fight is lost, he flees.

Giving chase through the dark forest would most likely be a fruitless effort.



A couple minutes later, the bodies are all lined up in the clearing - three dead, and two hogtied captives.

Charlotte: ”I guess I was the bait.”

The detective frowns while looking at her torn coat, and then at Maxim and Langley’s weapons. The latter two carefully clean off their blades, undisturbed by the lives they just took.

You clean off your blade with a cloth - a weapon is only effective if maintained.

The blood doesn’t bother you, even if you’re not accustomed to killing.


This is justice.

You watch Langley and Maxim clean their bloody weapons, unfazed by the events that just occured.

One of the gifts of Solis, strengthening the will of those who fight in his name.

Clasping your hands together, you recite a short prayer to relax your own nerves, calming yourself down enough to look at the corpses without fear.

Three dead, with the Demon Eye still imprinted on their hands. All in the same place - perhaps they were all cursed in the same manner, somehow.

"Do you suppose there's more of them in the forest? With apologies to Diamond for imposing, I don't think it would be wise to move out of here until the sun rises."

"It wouldn't be an issue with me if I kept a party here, but aren't you and me still suspects, Max?
Oh, I just can't find it in my heart to nap in the same building as someone who could think we're affiliated with the same ilk who tried killing us."

>Shrug, haul one of the captives onto my shoulder.

"I mean, you stabbed one of them. That's something. Though I've seen heretics do more to try and pass themselves as law-abiding citizens.

SPEAKING OF STABBING. Oi stabgirl, you're a feisty bastard, eh? If you start chopping people down whenever they look at you wrong, we won't have anyone left to bring to trial.

Anyways. Alchemist, you have a bathtub or pool or other water feature? I'm going to teach these boys some good old fashioned witch questioning techniques."

"If we stand and let them shoot us, there'll be no one to bring them, Captain. Besides, I left one alive for you.

In times like that, it's do or die. You should know that.
And I was not trained to die."

>Head where Diamond indicates. Find water container. Set the cultist down.

"Alright, heretical scum. This is how it's gonna happen. You're gonna get tortured, tried, imprisoned, then probably burnt on a pyre. You can't change that. What you CAN change is how hard we'll need to torture you. So spill the beans. Who are you people, and what are you planning? Why did you attack us?"
