Scratch was visiting Gerald the Mystic when the demons and devils escaped. Scratch is trapped in the sub-basement, but relatively safe engaging in the sorting of piles of stuff.
Scratch is interrupted by the rest of the party falling out of the sky onto her neatly organized piles.
After brief introductions, the group bursts into action working out a path to escape. Muse creeps into the darkness, Mellie investigates the lay of the land, tyrtaeus ignores all danger and roots through the piles…
I had to run off yesterday, so here's a proper ending to the session.
We see a shot of Gene as he flares with alien power. As he springs into motion, time slows, and we hear the strains of Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun, his face cast in reddish light from the glow of his blade. The radiance intensifies as he slays the Yuan-ti sorcerer, and our camera speeds up as he moves to the second, covering the ground in a flash before slicing the warrior in two.
As the serpentine warrior's upper half tumbles to the ground behind him, Gene is exposed to everyone as a man no longer a paladin, but something different and greater, a harbinger of alien light.
