I interpret Madeline's actions as a Taunt at the Lili-owl.
Madeline Taunt: 11
Lili-owl Smarts: 5

Madeline wins with a raise. She gets +2 on her next action against the Lili-owl, and the owl is Shaken.

Unpossessed owl screams.
Anna Spirit: 3, -2 =1, failure. Anna takes 13 damage = 2 wounds. Benny spent per Discord chat; Vigor: 7. One wound soaked.
Madeline Spirit: 6, -2 = 4, success
Aress Spirit: 4, -2 = 2, failure. Aress takes 10 damage (including the +1d6 for her curse) = 1 wound. Benny spent per Discord chat; Vigor: 5, wound soaked.
Rikku Spirit: 23, -2 = 21. Massive success.

Lili-owl Spirit: 1; does not recover from being Shaken.

Rikku Aims at the Lili-owl

Aress Aims at the Lili-owl

NOTICE ROLLS
Anna: 11
Madeline: 5
Aress: 4
Rikku: 3

Anna hears the distant sound of rustling in the underbrush. It's impossible to say what's causing it, or how far away they are, but they're in the forest ahead and they're getting closer. You probably have a few rounds before whatever is making that noise gets here.


Madeline's heartening singing and calm attitude seems to infuriate the purple-eyed owl, which launches into a veritable tirade of venomous-sounding hooting; none of it, however, carries that supernatural chill. Anna hears a vicious stream of abuse directed at the snow leopard. "Puling wretch! やりまん ! 醜い獣 ! Your trite melodies mean as little as crickets chirping, or small dogs yapping! It will please me to know that you die with this filthy place!"

The other owl takes wing, soaring silently overhead and emitting a sustained screech, loud and piercing enough to shatter glass, momentarily deafening you all. Madeline, trained in the musical arts, and Rikku, centered like never before, barely flinch. Anna and Aress feel the sound like knives driven into their ears; something within them seems to shatter in agonizing pain. Blood trickles from Aress's pointed ears, and Anna coughs, spitting blood.

Rikku coldly takes aim, as does Aress, a bit less steadily.

Spoiler: Show

ON HOLD - Anna [d12 Spirit, 1 wound]

10 diamonds = Lili-owl [SHAKEN]
8 diamonds - Other owl
8 spades - Rikku [d12 Spirit, Aiming]
7 diamonds - Aress [d12 Spirit, Aiming]
2 hearts - Madeline [d12 Spirit, +2 vs Lili-owl]

Anna drops to her knees, growling in agony, blood trickling from her mouth and ears... that damned curse.... wicked spell... She glares at her sibling.... snarling in pain... and stands up.... She focuses and casts, working to heal herself of the internal hemorrhage of Lili's blood curse... she pants as she casts the magic, her pain more than physical....

"I've had enough of this feathered freak show," Rikku says, as she lets her throwing knives fly.

Madeline smirks at Lili as she hears what she can only assume is a string of insults. She almost wants to stop singing to tell Lili she's heard better in rundown taverns and from bums in the gutter, but she's a bit busy trying to empower her friends.

Seeing Anna go down a bit angers her however, but she continues to sing, although now she begins directing her energies towards Anna. If she could empower the Kitsune's magic, perhaps Anna could properly fight back against Lili rather than being forced to sit on the sidelines.

OOC: Boosting Anna's Spellcasting now

Aress flinches at the pain, but endures. The pain and the accompanying curse hurt like the dickens, but she bears it. Now she's angry, and wants revenge for that stunt.

She throws her dagger at the possessed owl.

OOC: Throwing dagger at Lili-Owl, benny if needs be.

Anna waiting until after Madeline's action per Discord chat.

Lili-owl Spirit: 9, unshakes and can act.
Lili Spellcasting: 10. Lili-owl uses Invisibility! It's super-effective!

Other owl hoots at Madeline. Madeline Spirit: 5, success

Rikku throws her daggers at the Lili-owl.
Throwing: 5, +2 Aim, -2 size, -6 invisible = -1, miss
Throwing: 8, -2 size, -6 invisible = 0, miss

Aress follows suit.
Throwing: 5, +2 Aim, -2 size, -6 invisible = -1, miss

Madeline casts Boost Trait on Anna.
Madeline Music: 6, success. Anna's Spellcasting increases to d12

Anna casts Healing.
Anna Spellcasting: 11, -1 wound, -1 self-healing = 9, success. Anna healed.


The Lili-owl masters herself with an effort. "You, sister, might still have a chance," she calls, though to all but Anna it's only more hooting. "Leave these others to their wretched fate and surrender yourself to me. I could be persuaded to take you back, to save us both."

The owl-form shimmers and vanishes, visible only as a faint warping of the leaves behind it. The other owl lets loose another eerie cry, causing all the fur on Madeline's tail to poof out, but the snow leopard does not flinch.

A moment later three daggers whizz through the air towards the Lili-owl, but her sudden invisibility defeats even Aress's nightvision.

Madeline's song changes to something more complex, more specific, encouraging and inspiring Anna to new heights of sorcery. With the song as her guide, she weaves her flesh back together with minimal effort, spitting a last bit of blood.

Anna hears the rustling sounds drawing nearer. Whatever it is, it's either something big or more than one.

Anna stands tall, feeling her mate's music flowing through her mended veins... and presses the top of her fist into her palm, pulling it away and summoning her fires to their full fury... and screams, her tails arcing up and her hands thrust out, a wave of ravenous flame lurching forward through the grass, trees, underbrush, the entirety of the forest toward where her sister was, all the strength her mate giving her, all the rage at her sister, all the pain and sorrow... everything anna has being forced into one mighty unleashing of fire...

Spoiler: Show
anna is unleashing a burst at Lili's last known position, since lili never 'officially' moved she'd still be there unless she dodges it...

With the bird being invisible and out of range, Madeline shakes her head at Lili and continues her singing. There's not much she can do unless Lili gets closer or appears in her fox form and she can close the distance. And she's not sure if her magic would get absorbed or not.

OOC: Continuing to boost Anna's spellcasting for the moment Also Notice 16 per Discord


When she hears the sound of something heading this way, she calls out to the others "Girls, we might have more company soon!" She idly wondered if it'd be something Lili was drawing forth... or something that'd attack Lili just as readily.

"What the-?! Oh this is bullshit!" Aress cries out when the owl disappears, causing her shot to go wild. If Lilli keeps doing this all night, there's no telling if they could even avoid her.

She diverts her attention to the other owl, and grabs a rock. If she can't kill one owl, she can kill the other. For now, she aims.

OOC: Aress picking up a rock and aiming at the visible owl.
