The stranger shouts to Talas "Are you okay?"

OOC: For Carlos's player's benefit, Carlos sees a bloodied man with many
tattoos crucified and being held by a large number of these strange
little creatures.

"Throw down weapons!" the creature cries.  "Master will spare life if
you do so.  We destroy Atlantean otherwise."

Phaeton moans.  "Flee!  Find Rath-Iren!"  Another one of the creatures
strikes him with a red-glowing whip.  The Tattoo Man's skin opens like
sliced butter and blood spurts out.

"Forget name Rath-Iren." the creature shouts.  "Master desires only
one thing, and the rest of you go free.  He want one called Lady
Frost.  She surrender, Atlantean live.  She not, then all die.
Behold, Master give me Soul Drinker!"

With that he holds up a greyish sword with runes scribed on it.  "It
drink Atlantean's blood happily.  It drink all yours as well."  He
swings the sword casually, and then holds it against Phaeton's throat.

Talas moves next to Alex and whispers "Lady Alex you have faced these creatures before. Tell me are they of Supernatural stuff, or are they as soft as mortals?

- If the creatures are soft as mortals (SDC) then Talas calls lightning down on the creatures head in order to kill it.
-If the creature is of supernatural stuff (MDC) or of very, very high (SDC) then Talas will call lightning on the creatures sword hand, in order to make the creature drop the sword.
Talas will then charge them. Hoping that his horror factor of 14 will cause the creatures to become indecisive as to run of fight. To help scare off the creature Talas cries out "I am Talas Leaf-Blade, Demon Queller of Holly Tibet, Bane of the Nine Hells, Slayer of ....” (The 'Slayer of...' is a list of the name of every Demon and supernatural creature that he has killed.)
