Toby crying, while Rowan looks like a cinematic badass.
"Die." ~ Sinu the Red


Episode 245 - Dance of Undeath

With the Lich finally revealing itself our brave heroes now have the chance to put this evil to rest, murder style! Something makes me think that Liches are really powerful…maybe maintaining an illusion of a whole town for several days including towns people with personalities. Wait…what did we eat? What about that rad new cocktail everyone is talking about…my god.

Long Story

Well, this is how it is. Sinu the Red has just revealed his great trick: that the entire town of Tarry Hollow was no more than an illusion, created to trap the Ätlän-tã Fælcons and retrieve Katrina's amulet. They are now standing before a large army of zombies and former townspeople, now revealed to be skeletons and monsters and the like. Sinu himself leads them. He says to them, "Give me the locket." He then asks Toby why he is wearing his robe. The fight begins...

Jaela is still holding Teddy, so she hands him to Toby. As she does, he whispers "Free me..." Toby, having cast Detect Magic last episode, doesn't detect any magic from Teddy, but senses that something is definitely off. Jaela notices Katrina a few feet away, in the crowd of decomposing zombies. She is also a decomposing zombie. Toby puts Teddy in an Adamantine box with breathing holes, and an immovable rod on top. Teddy says, "No, you fool. Free me." Jaela casts Locate Object and determines the locket to be in the box. Teddy's appearance becomes a lot more menacing, and he has sharp pointy teeth. Rowan's dancing sword she got earlier is rattling around and asks to be let out, so she does that. Teddy is actively becoming more and more terrifying. He is hissing, and his skin is becoming more leathery and taught. He looks deranged. Toby grabs him and shifts into the Astral Plane with him. But when Toby gets there, Teddy is not with him! Sinu turns to Steve and says just one word. "Die." Steve falls to the ground dead.


There is a mighty battle between the Ätlän-tã Fælcons and Sinu the Red. Sinu demands his sister's locket. Toby puts Teddy in an Adamintine box, and Teddy begins transforming into a monster. Jaela determines, using magic, that the locket is in the box with Teddy. Toby grabs Teddy and shifts to the Astral Plane, but Teddy is gone when he does this. After doing almost no damage to Sinu (except Jaela), Sinu casts the spell Power Word Kill on Steve, killing him instantly!
