Progressive Monsters: 1895

The Old and New

Vigo is blown out of the building and knocked cold and everyone else is knocked back. From the blast a man appears speaking Aramaic.

Down below Amara Popodopolus, the goddess Circe disguised as a socialite, feels the building shake and power from up above. She excuses herself, turns into a bird and heads up to investigate. Amara recognizes the man as a djinn and steps in, casting a spell so everyone can understand him.

He reveals himself as Ahmad, and ancient djinn who was trapped in the urn.

As Ahmad continues to describe what he is doing there the group hears the elevator come up with a group of polic officers. The building begins to shake again and light bulbs start to light up and explode.

Everyone is able to avoid the police by hiding or moving up to the roof (Alastar loses his watch climbing onto the roof). Amara talks one of them into leaving. Amara looking down below notices all the guests exiting the building but when a firefighter tries to enter someone prevents him.

Everyone feels electrical power surrounding them and building. Amara is then shot by a sniper from across the building. Ahmed tries to fly over to him but finds that he is still linked to the urn which Ohinoko has and he can’t move far from it. Amara is grazed and turns the sniper into a pig.

Alastar swing below and sees the chaos below but decides to look for the watch he dropped. He finds it but it is picked up by Duncan, a redcap. The two get into a fight over the watch.

Ohinoko senses that the electrical power build is coming from below and heads down but it puts in such disharmony that she can’t use her spirit magic. Amara and Ahbed follow closely behind and encounter a strange man wearing a white mask with nothing but two eye slits. The energy is so intense it weakens everyone causing Ahmed to return to his urn.

The man is operating a large generator and a lyre that Amara tried to purchase at an auction a month earlier but lost to a man calling himself, Daedelus, has its string going into the generator. They try to stop him and Ohinoku throws tools at him while Amara turns a pipe into a large snake that starts to squeeze the life out of the man. He manages to cast some magic causing the electrical energy to pop around Amara. He manages to also flip a switch the kicks the generator to full and cause the lyre to light up. The power overwhelmed them and everyone is knocked out.

Alister is taken a beating outside as Duncan is about to bite into him the building erupts with light shooting a beam of light into the error. The power knocks Alister out.
