Blended Solo RPG (Session 3)
"I'd rather not anger Thassa any further by launching into an attack of her avatar," Ptolema says, hesitant. Looking at her sisters, she notices as Thyia steps forward, her hands already full of the gifts of food from the grove of Nylea.
"Great Thassa, wild Thassa, goddess of the stirring sea," she holds up a huge acorn-cap bowl of nectar as the Hydra comes thundering toward them, its heads slithering over the trees like huge, angry snakes. "We make this offering as an apology for our transgressions! We prostrate ourselves before you. We ask for your guidance and your protection as we travel home.
The hydra pauses, huge feet clawing the ground just short of Thyia, but she does not move, does not startle or try to run. She kneels before the beast instead, laying the offering at its feet.
OOC: Is the Sea Goddess's rage sated?
(Oracle:) Yes, but. . .
The Hydra rears up suddenly, and when its feet come down, they smash the offering and splash the nectar all over Thyia. Startled, Elovar raises his bow and looses a pair of arrows immediately, but they bounce off the hydra's glittering hide. Enraged, the avatar of Thassa's rage roars, and suddenly Ptolema realizes that they have no choice but to fight to defend themselves from the great beast. Her eyes go wide, and then she raises her shell-bangled spear and rushes in, howling her own battle cry.
