I nod, and close my eyes for a moment to regather my energy. Wonder if the weird stuff cursing the outside applies here?

((dispel magic))

I watch and wait, being sure to give our companions a glance and a smile.

Mizuki, you take the scroll case and cast your spell and immediatally recognize that it has caused the case to put up a secondary defense. You can tell that there is a strong compulsion being put forth, but since no mortal can compel you to do anything, the effect dissipates to nothing.

Similarly, your attempt to remove the protective magics upon the case meets with less than stellar results. The abjuration is very strong, and your dispel doesn't seem to do a thing!

OmniFrost, you are pretty sure that the case actually absorbed the magical energy of Mizuki's spell.

My head cocks to the side slightly as I think about what just happened.

"Mmmhmm"

((No response sooo..))

I will step over to the parchment, take my glove off, roll up my sleeve, and reach in to take it. "This will be interesting."

So, actually touching the parchment itself?

Okay, Omni, you attempt to actually remove the scroll itself and you are suddenly seared with a bright flash of heat and light. Now, you aren't able to get out of the blast* (though Mizuki ducks the blast to avoid getting much of the heat), but you can tell that the damage would have been much greater had you not been properly equipped. You stand smoldering, your hand gripping the cool parchment of the scroll - it is out of the case. Scratch too, has steam rising from her scales and she staggers around.

Um... ow... that was not pleasant at all.

Aros and Malak, you are mulling over your situation when all of a sudden you both feel the sting of a thousand yellow jackets all over your bodies. The pain is surprising, but it is gone in a moment. You can both see blisters from severe burns on your arms and hands - it feels all over your body.

Tiber speaks up -

I smell cooked meat! Normally we only have simple rations. What a nice change...

I turn to Mizuki, "Ooowww! That smarts." I shake my head trying to clear it some, and then heal myself.

Then still holding the parchment tight, "Do you want to, or should I?"

"Oh, I want to." I hold my hand out. "Let's guess.... some form of compulsion next? It seems like it's about time for that. What do you think?"

With your action, OmniFrost, everyone is healed. Do you hand the scroll off to Mizuki?

Sorry to disappoint, Tiber, but what you smell is us. It's rather difficult to explain, but it would appear that our companions have gotten into some trouble. I pause to debate whether to explain further, when I feel a warm glow encompass my burned hands. Ah, that's better.

I look for the track of an explosion on the ground. If I find it, I'll write "WTFBBQ?" on the ground in Giant.

(Lol)

As I hand Mizuki the scroll, "It probably says, 'Sorry you are not a winner! Please try again.'" then I crack up laughing.

I chuckle, "That's alright, I don't believe everything I read."

and read the scroll.

The scroll unrolls easily and you can tell that another harmless (to you) compulsion attempts to have you set the scroll on fire, but it has no hold on you. You see three glyphs drawn with ink on the page, and then some writing down in the corner of the bottom right corner of the scroll. The writing is much more recent than the glyphs:



There is also a symbol in the bottom right corner, likely the signature of whomever wrote the note in the first place. The scroll is worn and seems to have some singe marks, as well.

I look at OmniFrost. "Well, there's something on it that is supposed to make me want to burn it, but that didn't work. Here, I'll draw what it says on the ground. See if it makes sense to you."

I wipe off the 'WTFBBQ?', and quickly write 'roflcopter111111!!!'.

Underneath, I sketch out the glyphs.

(For that matter, does it mean anything to me? Also, what language is the "place the three symbols" bit written in?)

Oddly enough, the language written on the scroll is the common trade tongue of which you, Omni, Aros, and Malak are all familiar.

The glyphs are not clear to you, Mizuki, though when you sketch out the glyphs, OmniFrost can see the look of a powerful transmutation spell, that is, changing one inert substance into a animate (if not living) substance. What that specific substance is difficult to quantify - the glyphs are not particularly detailed.

"Hmmm, I use a similar type spell to create the defender. I wonder what it's altering?"

I look around to see if anything is changing.

OmniFrost, you see the glyphs in place, but they don't seem to be properly attuned, and so, nothing has changed. It is likely that these glyphs are tied to a specific location, or at least a specific proximity to an object or location.

Malak, you will see the new writings as Mizuki places them on the floor. In fact, Mizuki has replicated the scroll exactly on the ground. You see all of it, and Aros, you would recognize the glyphs as potent transmutations to be used together - changing the inert into the animate, but you cannot tell what is to be changed.

I'll take the emerald, then the book, then each of the various gems and place them in the center of the runes. If that accomplishes nothing, I'll copy the first page from the bok and add a footnote in giant <translation? Helpful?>
