Wu's attack hits its mark, but is woefully meager in effect.  Facing this foe head on would be a death sentence.

The monk braces himself as the dragon takes evasive maneuvers.  Hopefully they have enough of a lead to escape the wrath of the Hunter.

She gripped the spikes along the dragon's back tightly, when suddenly the dragon dipped verticle, wrapping its wings around himself. As the dragon dropped like an arrow in a corkscrew, she could not help but be thrilled by the exhillerating descent

"WOOOOOOOOO" She yelled out, grinning, before grunting at the sudden deceleration. She looked around to her companions blushing slightly. She grumbled.

"Erm... sorry"

She would look around for the Werewolf then, keeping her eyes pealed and ready to use earth dragon to block an attack if necessary.

The air became unnaturally still after that maneuver. The sounds of the hunter became ever more distant, and Valorkoth's steely focus on the environment around him rendered him silent, his eyes scanning the horizon for any further threats. His wing-beats were spaced out, creating as little noise as possible as he glided through the air just above the canopy of trees. As the danger seemed to slowly leak from the area, colors seemed to return and time resumed its normal pace. The hunter seemed to have called off the hunt, at least for now. It was uncertain what its reasoning was, or when it would return, but at the moment, the group was safe.

"I will take you back to the main body of our group." Valorkoth finally spoke, his voice rumbling as quietly as a being of his size could manage. "We will have to discuss our strategy moving forward and what to do about our missing ally."

He made a slight turn and began to soar in the direction of the rest of the force. "Our first strike has been successful, but not without cost."

Vil glances around as everything seems to grow quiet.  No longer does he hear the sound of the hunter pursuing them.  It would seem that, at least for the time being, they had escaped the creatures grasp.

"I will take you back to the main body of our group." Valorkoth finally spoke, his voice rumbling as quietly as a being of his size could manage. "We will have to discuss our strategy moving forward and what to do about our missing ally.  Our first strike has been successful, but not without cost."

He ponders the dragons words, especially seeing as how they never really did receive any information yet as to what transpired that led to the disappearance of the dragons rider.

Her cheeks red from blushing, she scanned the ground below, observing for other threats.

As calm washed over the group, she would fall quiet.

Valorakoth would speak eventually

"I will take you back to the main body of our group. We will have to discuss our strategy moving forward and what to do about our missing ally.  Our first strike has been successful, but not without cost."

She goes introspective, thinking about how the could have done things better. She hated losing anyone... she took out her flask and took a drink, before replacing it with a sigh.

It would seem that the coast is clear.  The Hunter has been shaken off of their tail, and the air has become still.

Valorkoth mentions returning to the main part of the group.  A welcome idea.  Hopefully some rest can be had.

Wu nods solemnly in response, knowing the dragon could not see him regardless.  It is not often that his composure breaks like that.  The Hunter struck him a blow that will take some time to recover from.  He focuses inward for the rest of the flight back, hoping to reconnect with his inner calm.

The rest of the flight carried on in grim silence as they soared through the air, eventually landing some distance off from the fortress they had just raided. The dragon alighted on a high, rocky cliff face with a view overlooking much of the land around the black city. The bulk of the Crusade's forces could be seen marching out of the city, preparing for the next assault that the main army would be undertaking. Banners of the crusade hung from the city's walls and a small force within the walls was establishing supply lines to the shore, likely to receive new forces and equipment in what was to be a lengthy campaign. From this high vantage, the main battle forces seemed like a distant sea of banners and armor, with a few monstrous silhouettes breaking the tide.

"So. Our dutiful taskforce has returned, one member shy. I thought I smelled danger on the winds." The dark, smooth voice of the mysterious vampire Alucard cut through the silence like a knife, his presence chilling as always as he seemed to materialize from the shadows of the treeline, a short distance from the side of the cliff. Behind him, the armored form of Sir Walter of Gandrick strode silently into the clearing. The master of the crusade walked to the very edge of the cliff, gazing out at the forces arrayed below, before speaking. "So. Tell me of what has transpired in the Fortress of Screams."

The Dulluhan slides off of the dragon as they land, patches of frost manifesting on the ground as his ebony plate boots clank upon the landing.  He gazes at the vampire as he speaks, and then over towards Walter.  His raspy voice rattles out from within his desiccated floating skull.

"We reached the Banshee Queen.  It would seem she is not quite as..."loyal" to the enemy as originally thought.  We then withdrew to rest and eventually our friend here (he gestures back towards the dragon) found us, his rider missing in action.  We then had to flee as the enemy chose to unleash the Hunter upon us, which we only barely managed to escape."

Vil slips his shield on his back, his hands resting on his belt as his head floats above the severed stump of neck.  His eyes flit about in their usual erratic nature, his mouth returning to the almost psychotic smile as he waits to see what everyone else says.

"It is as the Dulluhan says. She is powerful, but her loyalty may be fractured."

Mizuki sighed a bit and shouldered her spear. "I hope that she can be convinced to turn, but I do not think the Werewolf will. He tried pretty hard to kill us as we fled on the back of a flying dragon. Fairly Brazen if you ask me."

She looked to the beastmaster

"Sir Walter, how fairs my men?"
