    'Silas' gratefully takes the ladder and climbs up it into the unknown above.
    "Well, at least that's something."

    Climbing up the ladder, Silas eventually arrives in some sort of basement room. The floor seems to be a bit damaged by fire, but is otherwise empty.

    Annie's interest is still captured by Vernon, watching his every move with deep interest. Not one of those affected by his spellbinding words, she is nevertheless willing to follow him.

    She gives Ei a glance, stating; "He smells like me." and starts her short trek down the hallway. Passing Jack along the way, she provides him a flirtatious wink while biting her lip. She then enters the dining room to face Vernon, checks over her shoulder to ensure Ei has followed.

    Vernon has his arms nonchalantly folded, back rested against the far wall of the room. He wears an emotionless face.

    Ei, as promised, follows Annie into the dining room, glaring at Jack as she passes him. "Smells like you?" Ei asks Annie, slightly confused. "How do you know that? Besides, why would he smell like you in the first place?"
    As Ei enters the dining room after Annie does, she pulls the door closed behind them to ensure those outside don't get to hear the conversation going on. "So, you wanted to speak to us, Vernon?"

    nah clearly we should keep our eyes closed and try to navigate that way. We definitely won't collide with anything. No way. Anyone claiming it's a bad idea is Fake News.

    Hannah moves onto search through the other boxes around her, opening them up and seeing what is inside of them.

    Most boxes are empty or contain only items of very little practical use.

    Jaxton flips a coin, heads north tails south ok heads why are there so many heads recently. Jaxton cautiously opens the north door and steps in

    Taking the north door leads to a small closet for storing jackets and such. There are a few jackets in it, but most are worn out beyond repair.

    Pipers head turns listening for the footsteps. "Huh? What was-..." She realizes that if there is someone following them, it probably isn't best to be too loud... She walks over to the window. "I don't know, this fog is making it really hard to see." Piper checks the other windows to see if she can get a better view. "If there are any cultist guys out there... It's probably not safe to go where you can't see anything," she says, walking back to the other door. "Maybe it's better if we..." As she reaches for the handle, she remembers the footsteps. If they were coming from inside the house, then... "Wait, hold on. Shh..." Piper quietly turns the nob and slowly cracks open the door, to see if anyone is on the other side.

    "Well, yea, but the thing is. If we can't see anything through the fog, do you think anyone could see us through it, right?" Sune says, trying her best to see if she can spot anything outside. "I can't see anything out there."

    Piper looks through the door just in time to see someone bursting through the door into the room with the electric chair. A middle-aged man, wielding an axe, enters the room, and turns and starts walking towards the greenhouse.

    Bob is nowhere to be seen or heard...

    I will hereby assume that you are no longer interested in participating. This means that Bob is dead. Whether he shall be missed is a question I cannot answer.

    Fin looked at the two fighters, before immediately running out of the room through a nearby doorway. These two don't look so reasonable... I better find someone else. I've gotta find that girl FAST. Fin knew the urgency of this mission. If he didn't find the girl without color soon, he'd be as good as dead... Literrally.

    (If the Kitchen connects to the main hall, he entered into it and meets the people conversing in it. If not, he runs out into some random room you have in store for him.)

    Fin rushes out of the room, and trips on the doorstep, landing in the dining room with a loud crash.

    Allie doesn't remember why she has this weird obsession on trying to keep her shoes safe, but apparently she's fine with getting her nice white dress dirty. Allie looks back and sees someone there...

    "Ah, yeah, I think I need help..." she mumbles quietly.

    The person reaches out and grabs Allie's hand, pulling her up out of the mud. The person who helps her up is a girl, probably in her early twenties, with short brown hair and a green dress. Floating beside her is a small, neatly-made wooden doll carrying a basket covered with a cloth.
    "I thought everyone here left, why are you here?" The girl asks Allie, as she takes a handkerchief out of her pocket and uses it to wipe Allie's mouth clean of mud.
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    In the foyer…

    …Annie is regarding Ei’s question with disappointment, which, in light of the events about to take place, is no doubt a ruse to further deceive her –

    A horrendously loud noise is heard throughout the mansion, that of inhuman yelling and heavy crashing, as though a fight between monsters has suddenly erupted from direction of the attic.

    Ki then appears beside Annie, instantly speaking to Ei with the words: “You left your post.”

    Annie finds Ki’s sudden appearance and the sound of the upstairs battle infuriating, as she yells out ‘no’ in frustration and grabs Ki by the neck with intent to strangle her. As she takes Ki to the floor, Annie’s form changes to that of a shadow, while Ki, being choked by this ghostly form, looks to Maras for help.

    Ei doesn't seem very convinced by 'Annie's' dissapointing look, and opens her mouth to say something, but is interrupted by the noise coming from upstairs. When Ki arrives, Ei sighs.
    "Maras, help Ki. I got business to attend to up in the attic." Ei says, fading away, while Maras doesn't waste time, running his spear through the shadowy creature and pulling it off of Ki in an attempt to stop it from choking Ki. As he does so, a person standing in the doorway decides that now is as good a time as any to try and be useful and throws a dagger at 'Annie'
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    In the Attic, Vernon now looks much alike a man made of granite, while he and Ezra are locked in battle. The two embroiled bodies crash through a wall then down through the floor as their battle spills out into the hallway of the second floor.

    As their battle progresses through the mansion, four dark figures appear surrounding Annie’s chamber.

    Each of the four figures waste no time raising their hands high to strike the chamber with a sharp blast of crimson light!

    As the blast of light hits Annie’s chamber, a large shadow appears on the wall on the opposite end of the attic, which proceeds to pull all colour in the room into it, along with any magic the figures might launch. It doesn't take too long before the shadow takes up a more recognisable shape, and Ei emerges from it.
    "Sorry, but the show's over. I'm gonna have to ask you people to either leave Annie alone or perish, I've run out of patience so I'm giving you five seconds to make up your minds."

    While the five seconds slowly tick away, Ei's shadow begins to expand, soon it covers most of the floor like a large oil spill, and Ei, assuming the figures haven't fled, sighs.
    "Well, I was nice enough to grant you one final opportunity to flee, but you seem to not want to live." She says, as she reaches forward.
    Out of the shadowy mass on the floor in front of her emerges a sword, with a large blade that seems to occasionally ripple like the surface of water. Ei firmly grips the large sword with her outstretched hand, and clenches her fist with the other, in response to which the door to the attic fades away, leaving no exit.
    "So then," Ei says, as she moves forward, closer to the figures. "Do you have any last things to say before you perish?"

    Silas, not wanting to pick another fight, quickly mustered a quick explanation. "The vision I had. Annie has a child. It called me father. That's all I can tell." He refuses to say much more on the subject.

    Maras mutters something along the lines of 'That's something she needs to know', but doesn't respond to Silas.
    Quote from Merry_Pippin»

    Fin looked out at the ocean again before turning back to the cloaked 'man'. "Are you... The Grim Reaper?" If he was who he thought he was... Fin would have preferred to face a nest of Snakes alone over this.

    The hooded figure chuckles, though it sounds more like a deep humming noise. "No, I am not the Reaper. The Reaper only visits the dying, and you are already dead."
    The figure extends an arm and moves it across the open sky, and the scenery changes, now the duo are in the house, witnessing Chisille kill Fin.
    "I am here to... give you an offer. An offer to bring you back to life, if you agree on something that is. Are you interested in hearing my proposal, or would you rather... pass on?"
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Ei’s attention is caught by a sharp sound. She looks to see that Annie’s encasement has ruptured. Cracks continue to form in various areas before the shell decorticates. Annie rises from within the open chamber. She appears older by only a few years, a beautiful young woman in her late teens. The soft locks of her lustrous pearl-white hair seem to glow with an unnatural aura, as does the silver rings of her iris’s, beading like gems against her otherwise powder-blue eyes. Her skin is exquisite, also aglow with a texture that seems somehow out of focus, while her lips are full, glossed with a frosty purple hue.

    She rises from her chamber and stands beside the bed, unclothed as she was prior the transformation. She takes her eyes to Ei, a spectral reverence in her gaze.

    “Ei… my love, you’ve done well in keeping me safe. Behold, I am no longer under threat.” She smiled attentively. “The Order can no longer defeat me.”

    She opens her arms, welcoming Ei’s embrace.

    Ei turns around once she hears the sound, and watches as Annie emerges, stunned by her new appearance. It takes her a few seconds to get used to Annie’s knew look, but she soon rushes over to embrace Annie.
    "The vision, was it true? The child, is it ours?"
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    In a peculiar moment, Maras discovers himself alone in the dining room with Ezra. The event seems… ambiguous, rendering him uncertain as to whether the others with him had vanished, or if he had simply missed the moment when they exited via the door. Whichever the case, while Maras is still coming to terms with being forsaken by the others, Ezra looks up frightened from his position on the floor to propose the question:

    “Where… where have the others gone?”

    Maras looks around the room, confused.
    "I don't know, so stay close." Maras says, as he reaches out to pull Ezra up onto his feet.
    "Let's explore, hope we find some of the others." He says, as he approaches the nearest door and opens it.

    Trixie took a step forward towards Ezra, and looked him over for a breif few seconds. "Who is Ei exactly? And how would spinning us up into a tornado 'convey gratitude' ?" she asked, slightly accusatory, but not making any hostile action.

    Quote from Nucleep»

    "Gratitude?" Silas inquired, out of the blue. "I can already surmise what sort of gratitude you are giving... Anyway, could you explain to us more about yourself, and Ei, other than whatever relationship exists between the two of you?" he then questions passively.

    "Lady Ei saved this man, that's the relationship they have." A voice speaks, coming from the doorway into the dining room. Maras walks in, apparently the person who spoke. He walks up to Lyudmila, pokes her with the back of his spear, and mutters the words 'Can't handle alcohol, huh?' before looking at Ezra, and then at the other people in the room.
    "As for answers to your questions, I'm afraid neither I nor Lyudmila can answer them all, even though we are her servants. Lady Ei's species for example is something nobody knows, and I'm not sure even Ei herself knows nowadays. She's not here right now because she's got some... intruders to deal with. Those figures that have entered this building are targetting her friend, Miss Annie. She has, however, asked us to not interfere, and that goes for you too, Revel." Maras says as he points his spear at Revel for a bit before stabbing it into the ground.
    "But, since Lyudmila here passed out due to being drunk, I do believe I'm the only one here in any position to answer any questions about her you might have. As for you," Maras says as he looks at Ezra. "Lady Ei is busy right now but she should be finished soon. I must ask you to wait for her to be finished and not try and get to her before that."

    "I̛n͡sįd͡e̕ tha͟t h͏oúse..͞.͠"

    Allie notices a figure that passed by. It also started raining suddenly...
    It would be best to shelter from the rain, but it would probably help to follow this figure, maybe it will lead to somewhere with people.

    Allie immediately runs toward a house... an abandoned house. She doesn't know why she chose to look inside that house, it must be her instincts. Inside the house, she found... an umbrella! Old, worn, and patched up, but still useable. She for some reason also decided to leave her shoes and started running barefoot outside in the rain to catch up with the figure. Maybe she'll be able to pick up better shoes in the way...

    Allie runs down the street in an attempt to catch up to the figure, it's cold and wet outside, and the stones that make up the road are slippery, and the muddy bits of dirt aren't very nice to step in either. Inevitably, Allie slips and lands in a muddy puddle. Before she can get up though, she hears footsteps coming closer.
    "Need a hand?"
    Quote from People Having Dinner »

    [Dinnerstuff, also Ezra making an appearance]

    Meanwhile, Lyudmila has spent most of dinner drinking wine. She didn't have many opportunities to drink alcohol, so now that she had one she was going to make the best of it. Unfortunately for her though, she quickly becomes too drunk to hold a decent conversation. When Ezra comes in and makes a mess, Lyudmila is thrown to the floor. She tries to get up, failing several times before she manages to stand. She then tries to say something, pointing in Ezra's general direction, but instead falls over and passes out.

    Revel just lets Ei drag his human form around, thinking that it's all very entertaining.

    "Well duh, Ei, I'm aware of what's going on." He says with his face pressed against the glass. "It kind of goes hand in hand with being omnipresent. Why did you think I was offering to help?"

    Back in his seat, he turns himself back around and smiles for Lyudmila. "Told you she loves me."

    Revel then grabs the hand of the arm Ei sent out as it is retreating, and gives it a gentlemanly kiss. "The pleasure's mine, my lady. And do let me know if you actually want some help. Not that I'd want to spoil all your fun." He takes another bite of his turkey leg, then mumbles under his breath to Lyudmila;

    "How was it not obvious I was offering to help so she could take a bit of time to have dinner with us? She must be a real headache to live with." He shrugs. "Oh well, I guess if she doesn't want me to help then I won't. I can take a hint."

    As he holds up the bottle and offers Lyudmila another drop of the wine, the animal sounds not-so-coincidentally start up from somewhere else in the mansion. "Maybe one more sip of this and we will find ourselves in the mood to join the fun those two are having. I've always liked the circus."

    Lyudmila sighs, and takes another sip of the wine.
    "I don't think we'll have a lot of time to finish our dinner in peace."

    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    The capillary formations within the transparent compound on Annie’s body continue to branch out and multiply, becoming an intricate vein-like network over her skin. Soon the clarity of the words on her stomach become lost in their webbing. In addition, the area of compound covering her eyes is starting to change texture to that of a brown crust-like substance, while brown strains of the capillary lines begin to grow from her nostrils and ears.

    A Colossal creature swoops down from the heavens with intent to snatch one dark figure, while Maras approaches another with sword drawn, and Ezmond launches his own attack upon yet a third. This combined attack, however, happens to coincide with the climax of the rapid succession of sharp sound given off by the dark figures –

    All at once, the ten dark figures release a charge of energy, depicting that of many currents of electricity that connects all ten figures, while simultaneously discharging across the ground and into the air like an explosion of purple lightning. This immense explosion of energy strikes everything within ten meters of each figure, be that merely an instant before the colossal beast makes contact, but also the instant directly after Ezmond made contact with his own attack.

    As a result, the creature from the heavens, Maras and Ezmond, are all blanketed in the power of this powerful charge of energy. All three of them, for an instant in time, are rendered inert. In the following instant the burst of energy has ended. The colossal creature is repulsed and sent spiraling up towards the heavens. Maras is propelled backward at an alarming rate and impacts the wall of a stone building some twenty meters away. Ezmond is also sent back, crashing through the door he had once been blocking and into the mansion, where he proceeds to tumble onward for quite some distance.

    There is then a second void of any activity, but that one second of calm is shattered when every floor within the mansion bursts into flames and hundreds of black raven materialize, flocking down the corridors and into each room in search of Annie. These ravens’ eyes are ablaze with red fire, as too are their beaks and talons, ready to attack any individual that manages to stand in their way.

    Nevertheless, while the floors of the mansion are burning wildly and the Ravens go about their hunt, the one Dark Figure that Ezmond managed to strike before receiving his own fate, also succumbs to flames. Their person is engulfed in fire for several second while they release a tortured scream like that of dog being wounded. The flames, however, do not last, soon they are doused by an intense wind that encircles the figure like a tornado, but the garments of the figure have already been turned to ash, leaving exposed the figures true form. Unwilling or possibly unable to be seen for what it truly is, the figure flees from the mansion, departing with haste to conceal themselves in the darker shadows of night.

    Upstairs, in the Attic, Ei is staring out into the distance when the figures release the charge of energy, and she grins.
    "They're here. I hope you're all ready and hungry, for it is time to feast."

    Maras quickly recovers from his impact, but takes the time to smash a hole in the wall next to him before he charges towards another of the figures and throws a trident at it. The creature too turns around, and dives straight down, it's shape constantly changing, making it near impossible to fire an accurate attack at it. And as the figure flees towards the shadows, something emerges from the shadows and lands on him, pinning him to the ground. A large creature, taller than a human, vaguely resembling a hybrid between a fish, a frog and a man, it has a long tail and webbed, flipper-like feet and sharp claws. More of these creatures emerge from the shadows surrounding the mansion, and proceed to charge towards the figures, some running only on their hind legs, while others move about on all fours, agile enough to dodge incoming attacks while they close the distance between them and the figures to get within range to rip them apart with their claws and sharp teeth.

    Inside the mansion halls, the ravens have trouble navigating, as the twisted hallways ensure the stairs are hard to find. To make matters worse, they're not alone. Out of the walls and ceiling emerge shadowy claws that reach out to grab the ravens and smash them against walls, ceilings and floors, while water pours out of the holes in the walls, soon dousing the flames and filling the corridors with enough water to reach up to one's knees. Strangely enough, the upper floors have this too, creating waterfalls down the staircases. Out of the water emerge more of the strange creatures, who chase after the ravens to try and devour them, jumping from walls to increase their momentum as they chase down any ravens they find.

    Back in the attic, Ei curiously watches the change the substance covering Annie is undergoing as several other Eis, each with green skin, finish barricading every possible entrance with far more furniture than was originally found in the attic, having somehow taken furniture from other places in the mansion. Once the entrances have been barricaded, they give Ei a thumbs up, and melt into puddles of water.

    "Pester pester, that's what pests do." Revel replies. "One can't help their own nature. But we both know she loves me." He jests. Once Lyudmila was done dishing out the potatoes he places them back on the table for her. "And why put yourself down like that, my lady? The only thing I'm desperate for is a little bit of... fun with that special person, maybe? Given, sure, I'm not the fussy type, but you can hardly call that desperate." Thinking a moment while licking away a dab of potato that got stuck to his thumb, he then says; "To be perfectly honest, thin walls are my thing, why sleep when you can listen to the doings of the couple next door? But you know..." He says, looking like a light turned on in his head; "...I really should get myself a cow bell."

    A cow bell appears on the table beside him.

    "Would you like one too?"

    "She's not a pest!" Lyudmila says, and sighs. "But yea, it's in her nature to behave like that. She's just a bit... peculiar, I'd say."
    "And I'm not sure whether or not to be surprised about you being interested in listening in on other people's business. And I'll pass on the cowbell, thank you very much." Lyudmila says, as she fills a glass with wine and starts drinking.

    After a while of the others chatting, she decided to question them. "Lillid... What are you talking about? You say they're having fun? What do you mean?" she asked Lyudmila, then turned to Revel. "What fun you talking about? Why does Betty want cookies and love angels?"

    Lyudmila spits out her drink as Chisille asks the question, which seemingly came out of the blue.
    "Well... err..." Lyudmila tries to think of a good explanation. "Ask Revel, he's more of an expert than me on the subject I'd say."
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    Ei’s behaviour makes no difference to Annie’s condition. Furthermore, while Ei circulates her finger in the air, the yellow compound enveloping Annie is gradually changing. Dark capillary lines are starting to take shape within the thin layer of the compound, branching out like fine, black roots over her arms, legs, face and torso.

    What is however most curious, is that some of these capillaries are taking a different type of form above Annie navel. They are taking on the shape of four words, and soon their formation is clear enough for Ei to read:

    As Ei sees what is happening, she starts to worry even more. Is the substance slowly killing her friend?
    Then, however, Ei notices something, above Annie's navel, text seems to be forming. Ei waits until it becomes readable.
    "Dont... let... them... come..." Ei repeats the words she reads, becoming silent after she finishes. Then, she starts giggling, her laughter echoing throughout the mansion, seemingly coming from all directions at once, as Ei's red eyes are slowly replaced by a starry void.
    "Don't worry, Annie. I'll protect you at all costs."
    Quote from NightsRemnant»

    The dark, cloaked figure makes no effort to prevent this assault. Boris simply falls to the ground as though he’d been thrown against a concrete pillar. The figure does not react, they do not take counter measures, they do not show any sign of retaliation. They remain perfectly still, unperturbed, while the rapid succession of short, sharp sounds they emit continues to intensify.

    Maras’ group has been ignored.

    Maras seems rather... annoyed by the lack of effect throwing Boris at the figure has, when something catches his attention. Maras looks up as the clouds fade away, revealing a night sky full of bright but foreign stars, stars never seen before in the night sky. Then, he spots the creature from earlier. It swoops down to ground level, and flies right over the group, targeting one of the cloaked figures, seemingly with the goal of catching the figure in it's mouth, which is big enough to swallow a man whole.
    "Well, that creature seems to be on our side. You guys go inside, I've got business to take care of out here." Maras says, pointing at the front door leading to the foyer, while drawing a sword and approaching the nearest figure.
