”Ummm what? Stop gaslighting, we don’t know all the facts and if you give no examples then I guess you ain’t tellin tha truth. And I am not sure how you causing choas in the city and blowing stuff up and have hostages that you will kill at a moment’s notice means that you are telling the truth.”

Haley Shakes her head ”your plan is horrible and won’t work at all. More likely he will try to kill your ass for trying to take control of mew in the first place, honestly I don’t blame him. And you are lucky if that is the only thing he would do to you.

No I do not understand. Why should we trust you that you will keep them safe? Anyways, the blood is on your hands not ours if you decide to do that. And if you do, I will ensure that you will be punished for it.”



Haley starts to follow Grimm and communicates with the group.

Grimm has hostages, and is willing to kill them if we tell the red hand. And probably willing to kill them if anything does not go according to plan.

"...we'll play along. For now. But Haley's right - you'd better not touch those hostages. Even if Magnus doesn't like what you've got to say."

~Grimm wants to talk, and he's got hostages. So don't attack on sight. But be ready.~


Thinking on it, Izzy voices another idea to the group.

~Anybody know where these hostages are? We might be able to stop this before it gets too crazy.~

Bruce was just seconds away from jumping down after Irene before hearing Grimm's suggestion that any more backup stay away. He refrains from jumping down right away, but does stick his head out the opening to give himself the best view possible, and gets ready to jump in a heartbeat if any violence breaks out.

"Soo, you just want to leave us alone for a while leaving us free reign to explore the temple, and possibly free it from prophecy overload? Works for me, I'm sure the temple's heart won't mind being trapped once it's released."

Haley, Izzy, Irene, Bruce

”Ummm what? Stop gaslighting, we don’t know all the facts and if you give no examples then I guess you ain’t tellin tha truth. And I am not sure how you causing choas in the city and blowing stuff up and have hostages that you will kill at a moment’s notice means that you are telling the truth.”

Grimm seems to let out an annoyed groan, glaring as he let's out his reply. "What are you even talking about? What other inane questions do you have left?! I've no time for this- I've not gained the title of Lorekeeper to be schooled by a bunch of children who believe they know better. Not to mention I've already told you about the bombs, they were meant to be a distraction, and the major ones were rigged to never blow! There is a difference between gaslighting, and you failing to understand."

”your plan is horrible and won’t work at all. More likely he will try to kill your ass for trying to take control of mew in the first place, honestly I don’t blame him. And you are lucky if that is the only thing he would do to you."

"You sound as if you know him. Rest assured I'm prepared for that possibility. By the sound of it, I do believe you shouldn't care if that is what ends up happening..?"

"No I do not understand. Why should we trust you that you will keep them safe? Anyways, the blood is on your hands not ours if you decide to do that. And if you do, I will ensure that you will be punished for it.”

"Nothing I can say or do at this point will be convincing you to trust me, that seems quite clear. At least nothing I've the time for. I can only make a promise: if you do not interfere, none of the hostages should end up harmed. And even if you did, it would not be by me directly, but the Red Hand members themselves lashing out. Do you understand that?"

"...we'll play along. For now. But Haley's right - you'd better not touch those hostages. Even if Magnus doesn't like what you've got to say."

"I'd very much prefer not to. But if that is going to happen, take control of your child!" Grimm calls out, pointing an accusatory finger at Haley, who is stepping closer to follow Grimm.

"One step more, and I will be resolving this issue through another method than mere words. Make no mistake- I do want to trust you. And we can discuss and debate all through the night once all is said and done, but right now there. Is. No. Time. I deal in matters more important than just a couple human lives - Should it come to that point."

"Soo, you just want to leave us alone for a while leaving us free reign to explore the temple, and possibly free it from prophecy overload? Works for me, I'm sure the temple's heart won't mind being trapped once it's released."

"Do whatever you wish, as long as you stay up here and do not interfere. But you may not know me well yet, so allow me to say: as a Lorekeeper, I always have a plan. If you continue to insist on meddling, you shall be dealt with."

"Make no mistake. I want to do this the nice way, for the benefit of a future alliance. But it is also simply more convenient than the alternative."

"Now, time is up. I'm leaving. You know the conditions - Do the right thing."
Grimm states, matter of factly, as he turns toward the exit. Apparently he figures he's made his case more than clear enough, as he spares no more words...

"You said that we should believe you with facts. When I asked what facts you said we already should know. But obviously if I asked that question I didn't know what the void you were talking about. Besides you haven't really said anythin' ta make us trust you asides from you sayin 'trust me!'"

"If you make the command it is as if you did it. You would be no worse than hirin a hitman. So don't fuckin' lie to me."


Haley gives Grimm a grin. "Hah! Ah you think you are intimidating?! Please, I've seen the slaver tear reality like butter. You don't scare me. Besides, some of us know how to piss it off."


Haley follows Grimm with a ready action to do something if he tries to harm her.

Before things can spiral out of control, Izzy calls out after Grimm.

"Waitwaitwait!"

"Look...she's kinda got a point. We don't have any reason to trust that you aren't going to harm those hostages. So, how about you just let a couple of us stay close and watch what happens when you talk to Magnus. If things go like you say, and he agrees to your "alliance", you won't have to worry about us at all. And as a bonus, you get to keep an eye on us. Make absolutely sure we don't screw anything up - accidentally or purposefully."

"And besides, we've already got some friends downstairs with him. So you'll have to deal with us "children" either way."

~Please don't do anything, Haley. If he really wants to just talk, I say we let him talk. Or at least wait until the others are here before you piss him off!~

Haley, Izzy, (Irene), (Bruce)

"You said that we should believe you with facts. When I asked what facts you said we already should know. But obviously if I asked that question I didn't know what the void you were talking about. Besides you haven't really said anythin' ta make us trust you asides from you sayin 'trust me!'"

"If you make the command it is as if you did it. You would be no worse than hirin a hitman. So don't fuckin' lie to me."


Asides an audible groan from Grimm, it appears he gives no further reply- Either figuring his case had been made more than clear, or simply no longer desiring to answer Haley- He does seem to pause ever so briefly when Izzy speaks up however, trying to come to some form of compromise.

"Waitwaitwait!"

"Look...she's kinda got a point. We don't have any reason to trust that you aren't going to harm those hostages. So, how about you just let a couple of us stay close and watch what happens when you talk to Magnus. If things go like you say, and he agrees to your "alliance", you won't have to worry about us at all. And as a bonus, you get to keep an eye on us. Make absolutely sure we don't screw anything up - accidentally or purposefully."

"And besides, we've already got some friends downstairs with him. So you'll have to deal with us "children" either way."


Grimm seems to consider the proposal seriously for a moment... Before attention goes to Haley, who is still trying to approach- Right before she suddenly finds herself halted, almost tripping... Quickly looking down to see something had grabbed a hold of her leg- Her own shadow?! As she watched, the true culprit showed itself, a gengar climbing out of her shadow... Just in time for a gastly to appear as well, it's eyes turning into a hypnotic swirl as Haley falls asleep on the ground.

Perhaps it had been a bit optimistic to expect someone who controls an army of ghosts to meet you all "alone".

"...I've already got my eyes on you." Grimm states, any chance of him seeming to have taken the deal now shot - "Besides, you can talk with your friends, can you not? Do it that way." Grimm states, continuing to leave, the gengar and gastly remaining visible - but appearing only focused on Haley.

The others meanwhile, finally seem to be reaching near the top... At least, they hope the "open" part of the tower coming to an end and turning into a ceiling means that, who knows how many floors might be hidden beyond it- Lucky for them, Magnus does confirm the suspicions.

"Next floor is one of the main halls. I bet that's where Grimm will be expecting us. Plenty of space for whatever scheme he has, and one floor away from the antechamber where I might be able to fix the tower."

"If you insist on helping, be ready... Don't get in my way."
