Otso looked at the candles and scribbled circle. "I don't pretend to understand magic, but couldn't we use this..." He motioned towards the magical... things. "...to find Robor or your uncle? Either we go straight for Robor or we put you and your uncle together, limit his targets from one to two and force him to confront us where we want to fight him."

Tamati "Taheka" Stevens
HP: 2
Condition: Normal

Tamati wasn't too sure what to think of the older boy Lex, yes he had help rescue him and his brother and there was a real sweet moment at the end when the Murphy whanau had came together yet now Lex seemed to be taking the piss or was that just how he normally acted?

Looking at the magical runes and paraphernalia laid out Tamati didn't have anything to aid he was struggling to keep on top of normal maths and stuff, magic was something completely different again.

He shrugged his shoulders slightly looking at Shelby to see if she was following what was now going on.

"Lex, stop bitching." Dennis snapped. First he put up a sound-masking field in case Robor might have left a watching simulacrum plant. "And no, Otso. For one, we don't have any divination magic users. And I doubt the ritual paraphernalia works for any arcane link."

"Blow it out your ass, hey you," Lex said, standing as he puts the book and pen back into his pocket, "There's plenty of magic users out there. Ask Martin before giving up and whining at me."

"Hey, Randy? Seems to me he's going to kill you either way, then come kill us either way, so instead of just waiting to die- maybe do something?"
Lex mutters.

"Either way I'm done. Randy's free, bad guy is gone. Call me tomorrow when you figure out what you're all doing next," Lex calls over his shoulder as he walks away.

"No, but recent research suggests 'ormonal fluctuation creates somezing akin - fluctuations in mood, anxiety, irritability, depression... Some researchers call it 'Irritable Male Syndrome' or I.M.S." Fluxx says.

Otso snorted in annoyance at Dennis. "I said I don't pretend to understand magic. I was just thinking that if Robor was using this spell or ritual or whatever to find his brother, shouldn't another divination magic user be able to use? Surely Headmaster Newton knows someone who could use it. Or maybe not, what do I know, I'm just the big, dumb bear trying to actually solve this problem instead of sitting on our hands waiting for the crazy guy to come find us."

"Oh It's not magic, eet's 'ormonal as I sai.... Oh, you meant Robor. Yes... well..." Fluxx starts smelling for what might have magic lingering in the room, items or areas of spellwork.

“Da isn’t a mage,” Randy said. “He just... knows enough to perform rituals like this. They take hours and he needs a book to do it—means he won’t be doing it in a fight.”

“Fascinating,” Sidestep said dryly. “Can we please get back to the school? These uniforms always give me a hell of a wedgie.”

Without waiting for anyone to say yea or nay, the youth joined the ruins of the cottage with the Wreck Room. The two areas seamlessly blended together.

“New kid has a neat power,” Randy said, looking to Ursa. “American, by the accent?”

“Another world’s future America,” said Kiln. “It’s been a weird few months for us.”

The Vindicator walked forward and into Vienna. Once everyone had followed—including a hesitant Randy—Sidestep disconnected the gateway. “If anyone needs me, don’t,” he said as he skulked off.

“So, uh...” Cacophony looked to the Drifter, “what’s the danger the Astrolabe has you here for?”

“It may be on the cusp of hitting us,” said Magnitude as he removed his helmet. “When we first met Liz, we were gone for quite some time in Sophie’s world.”

“Oui,” Beatrice said, “we spent two days in ze world ze Armada ‘ad attacked. ‘Oo knows ‘ow long zey will be ‘ere for.”

Violet watched as Sidestep skulked off. "Him too? What is it today?"

"Very nice to get you back, Randy."
Violet gave him a gentle hug. "I was worried about you."

“Oh, you know,” Mickie Daniels said, “his mom tried using her powers to evacuate our world and wasn’t in this dimension when your buddy decided to sacrifice our entire timeline. Now he’s an orphan. Oh, and his best-friend was actually a psychopath who murdered his brother and sister.

“Or it could just be a case of the Mondays. Whatever.”

"I.M.S." Fluxx adds, watching the Sullen space-folder leave.

"Yes, Drifter, Martin, what is ze danger and 'ow can we 'elp?"

“The hell if I know,” the Drifter said. “One minute, I’m in Oubliette-969, I’m celebrating the defeat of the Kin, then the Astrolabe took me to Martin’s world. We’d met before, actually.”

“Oui,” Martin said, “Liz and ze Aurelius ‘elped to free me from Robor.”

Randy pounced on that. “Robor? What do you mean? Why did he take you?”

“Because of my ability,” Martin said. “‘E wanted me to rewrite ze genetic code of people ‘e captured—to make zeir genetic makeup match his.”

Hubris’ jaw dropped as he looked at Fluxx. “Can you do that?”

Otso crunched his brow in thought. "Could that be it? You and your uncle are the last onez left, right Randy? If Martin could adjust your dna to make you no longer 'viable' for your father to use in his pursuit of power... It wouldn't eliminate him as a threat, he worked with Faustus before, but it would keep him from coming after you. You'd be free Randy."

Lex grumbled to himself as he made his way into the band room and dropped himself into chair.

Leaning back he considered screaming at the top of his lungs, the room was soundproofed after all, but instead settled for slouching forward and burying his face in his hands.

It seemed like every time they did this there was always one person screaming about how it couldn't be done. Like the lives they were risking for these unappreciative jerks didn't mean anything.

"Why in the hell am I doing this?" Lex asked himself as he closed his eyes.

All he could see was a throne on a hill of bodies.
