    Last Time on Gargoyle Quest:

    >>You call one of the gargoyles playing cards "Jerry". He looks at you in confusion. None of you have ever had any names.

    >>The one you repeatedly call jerry is confused by the spectacle, and inevitably loses his playing cards. they spiral down through the cityscape

    >>The man leading the priest to the limousine looks up at the three gargoyles spiraling through the air, catching the falling cards.

    >>"What the fuck!" He shouts, firing his gun off at them.

    >>Two of your friends, distracted by the sudden noise, crash into each other. There is a loud crunch as they hit the ground.

    >>Jerry is unresponsive.

    >>Why isn't Jerry moving?

    >>You have learned: What it means to die.

    >>It starts to rain, the droplets of water running down your stone cheeks in a mocking facsimile of tears.

    >>Jerry's open mouth serves as a cup for the rain, his lifeless eyes staring out at you, almost as though he wants something.

    >>What does Jerry want?

    >>The old man. The black stick that was pointed into his back made the sounds that caused Jerry to fall. The old man might be hurt by it as well. The stick might cause the old man to die, just like Jerry.

    >>No one should die. Jerry wants you to keep the old man alive.

    "Say your goddamn prayer!" The man's voice rings out like an explosion through the lonely warehouse, his fellows still as statues as they regard the old priest, soaked in his bed robes to the bone, tied to a chair and sobbing. The man points the black stick that rang out and caused Jerry's death at him.

    You are holding: fist sized stone.

    You have already entered the warehouse.


    You throw the rock with a practiced hand, the missile sailing into the startled man's hand, a sharp crack driving the stick from his hand as he shouts in pain. The other men with him pull metal sticks out from their coats, pointing them in your direction.

    "Who the fuck threw that?" The man who held the black stick shouts angrily, his youthful features wrinkling over in anger.

    Their eyes aren't made like yours. They can't see you.

    What will you do?
    >> Anonymous 03/02/11(Wed)18:05 No.14102584
    Now we wait. The men will grow impatient and will start to search for you. They will not realize that you are a threat. When one of them is close, grab him and break his neck with a quick twist.

    Then set the body aside and wait for another man to come. They'll keep coming like that until they decide to run. If they try to harm the priest before they run, kill them. Otherwise let them run.

    You will wait. But you cannot kill them. Not like Jerry.

    Your heavy body is silent as you climb up the side of a nearby crate, and you wait.

    "You think you can hide, asshole?" The man shouts, and you can hear leather shoes trying to be silent on the concrete. One looks below you, to his right, to his left, never above.

    You reach down, half climb down in fact, and plant your fist against the base of his skull with a dull "thunk". He makes a quiet gasp, and you catch him by the neck as his gun clatters to the ground, easing him down to the floor. You only realize now how big these men are, probably two feet taller than you if you stand on your tip toes.

    "Chris?" You hear one of the men, one who has not spoken yet, call out as he makes his way over.

    You hunch back up above the structure, still as stone.

    Two men approach Chris' prone form in the dark from opposite sides. One has a small pen light.

    What do you do?

    They can see him, and each other. At least the man with the pen light is visible to his friend.


    "Hey, Chris?" One of them says, kicking his downed friend. Chris lets out a muffled groan.

    "He's KO'd. Christ." The other one says, putting his fingers to Chris' neck. "Alright, spread out."

    You drop on one's back as he turns around, your clawed toes finding purchase in his ribs as you bop him solidly across the back of the head. He falls forward, and you skitter off as his friend turns around, the pen light rolling to illuminate your granite leg.

    He doesn't fire at first. "The fu-"

    You lunge, grabbing for purchase on his body. His stick rapports a few times, with an echoing zing as you kick him in he stomach, sending him flying bodily back across the hallway. You drop the tattered rips of his jacket as you stalk over to him. He clutches his stomach and groans. You give him a pat on the head, and he falls into a dreamless sleep.

    The final person in the group stalks into the hallway just near the light. You leap atop one of the crates, clinging to the sheer metal with your amazing strength. You pull him up and smack the side of his head, and he loses consciousness, dropping his stick. You still hold him as the man, still in the light cast by the overhead lamps, quickly picks up his black stick with his uninjured hand. He points it at the old man.

    "You come out here or I'll kill him right now!" He shouts, panic in his voice.

    "Lord have mercy." The old man whispers.

    What will you do?

    Chris had a metal colored stick, not a black one.

    put the man you just knocked unconscious up on top of the crates, and then pick up the metal stick. It feels strangely light to you, and is an L shape. You hurl it from the ground, hoping for a repeat performance, but the lightness of it causes it to sail past him harmlessly.

    "You think-" He says, angry as his stick makes a clicking noise. "THIS IS A FUCKING JOKE?!" Two sharp cracks issue forth from the stick with bright flashes as the ground near the old man smokes, powdered stone rising into the air. "YOU GET OUT HERE NOW OR HE'S FUCKING DEAD!" He shouts, the stick clicking again.

    The beams of the building are rounded, with little room for purchase, and the skylight would betray your position. If you had time, you would certainly try it, but you know you have to act now.


    You silently creep back up the side of the crate. You spread your wings, gliding down into the light towards the man. Your stony features illuminated, your claws outstretched, you fly, impossibly, towards him, mouth open in a silent hiss.

    "What in the FUCK!" The man shouts, turning his gun from the old man towards you. The stick cracks once, twice. The second time, you feel a sharp pain in your right wing as a hole is formed in the stony membrane. You smash into him, the force of your attack and the pain of your wing causing you to lose your grip on him as he is bowled back a good 15 feet. You stand between him and the old man, jaws open as you let out a ferocious hiss. He looks at you, eyes wide, and begins scrambling to get up, trying to run away.

    "Jesus Christ." The old man gasps.

    Your wing hurts, but you're still fully capable of moving.

    Your legs spread slightly, your tail curls as you coil mineral sinew for a pounce. This is the man who did it. This is the man who killed Jerry. This is the man who wants to kill the old man, who put a hole in your wing. He cannot escape. You feel a terrible heat well up in your chest as you let loose an animalistic snarl, springing like a tiger at the man just as he finishes standing.

    "Aaah!" He screams, high pitched and terrified. His stick levels at you and makes a single crack. You feel a vibration through your head as the right side of your vision goes dark. A terrible, piercing pain penetrates the spot, and you taste powdered stone as you land just in front of the man on all fours, your right hand clutching at your eye.

    Or, rather, where your eye used to be. You feel jagged unworked granite in its place, raw and unformed. You scream, a terrifying blast of primal noise that shakes the man into inaction for a moment. You head the stick click hollowly after a silent moment as you writhe in pain, and then the man starts to run.

    Your vision is blurred, you're in a lot of pain, but you know you can still catch him. You feel a black malice in the pit of your stomach.

    What will you do?

    (That'll teach me not to refresh)

    You feel the emotion course through your body as you run on all fours, leaping onto the sides of crates as your body flows like a missile at its target. You don't know if he can shoot that thing again. And you don't care. He gets a hand on the door just as you spring with a screech on him. You reach out, clutching into his meaty calf like it was a paper sack full of sponge with a stick inside. Warm red liquid runs out onto your hand, and you pull, the man screaming as he falls backward. He tries hitting you, his hand bruising on impact as you grin, a row of caringly sculpted teeth bearing a grimace.

    He tries next to remove your hand from his leg, and you twist his outstretched wrist like a doorknob, a sharp crack eliciting from within it. He yelps, and you grab his shoulder, slamming his head down onto your stony horns, the impact puncturing his jawbone and breaking it. You dig your claws into his skull, lifting his upper body off of the ground as you savagely slam his head into the ground till it cracks like an egg. Blood and spinal fluid pool around his head as he struggles to maintain consciousness. You reach and grab his ribcage like it was a hatch, pulling the front of it out of his chest with a sickening crack. You grasp his still beating heart in your mouth and crush it between pointed stony teeth, the remains deposited in a freshly sculpted stomach.

    You hope that hurt.

    You have learned: What it means to hate.

    You are half-painted with his blood.

    You feel better.

    Perhaps the best way to deal with the old priest is to make the sign of the cross at him, and then back away. Let him wait awhile, and then approach again, hands open like a supplicant. If he doesn't become too agitated, untie him then.

    He needs time to get used to the idea that the gargoyle isn't hostile to him.

    You stop walking, looking the priest in the eye. You raise your right hand, putting it on your left shoulder, then your right shoulder. He looks on, bewildered. You touch your forehead and then the center of your chest. He stops trying to get away. You walk slowly, calmly towards him, and as you grasp the ropes, he stiffens, as though expecting you to pull him into your grasp, but you shred the weaved nylon as gently as possible. The priest stands.

    "How... What in the hell are you?" He says, looking down at you with a mixture of fear and confusion.

    Your words surprise him, and he takes a single step back.

    "My god, I'm not dreaming, am I?" He rummages in his pocket, pulling out a rosary. The old man looks at it without much relief. "No, no I'm not. Jesus."

    "I will answer as much as I know, but not here. We must return to my home at the Cathedral. I grow weary..." You feel a sharp pain where your eye used to be, and clutch at it with a quiet hiss, the pain nearly causing you to fall over.

    "At which Cathedral?" The priest says as it slowly dawns on him. "Oh god, you're what he was firing at." He shakes his head. "You're right. Let's go."

    You walk in front of him, your hand protecting the sensitive stone in your face as you walk out the entrance.

    "Oh..." The priest puts his hand over his mouth, balking for a moment as he sees the remains of the man who would have killed him. He continues out the door quickly.

    You lead him back to the cathedral from rooftop to rooftop. He seems weary when he reaches the heavy doors, and you can feel lethargy from the coming dawn setting in. Your fellow gargoyle has already gone to sleep. You know you can stay awake while the sun is up, but you will slowly become more and more weary until you freeze up.

    "Justice was served through fist and stone." You say, turned partially away from the priest.

    "Not the kind of justice I'm used to." The priest says. "Your face, is it-"

    You get onto your perch, giving the remains of Jerry and the other gargoyle a glance as you do so.

    "I... I suppose I should get some sleep as well." The priest looks around. "You're still bloody, I brought a rag for you..." He looks around for something. "And I could have sworn there was a bucket of water up here."

    You could honestly care less what the people down below will think if they see you covered in dried blood. You cross your arms, hunched up with your knees near your chest, your single eye gazing into the first rays of the rising sun.

    "Good morning, Father."

    Now you sleep, until next evil wakes.

    The next gargoyle quest will be friday night. Do you guys want to archive this or shall I do it again?

    Sorcerer quest will start in a couple minutes, if you guys want to stick around for that.

    I will have a meeting going on at :30, but I should still be able to update at a fair pace.
