    The crowd pushed back against the Dottari's advance but their bravery held out for only so long. The doors of the Opera House burst open and Nox stormed out. Behind her were dozens more Dottari, but the beast at her side was what really sent fear through the crowd. She held in one hand a metal leash tied to the collar on a massive, redish brown dog with eyes that burned with the fires of Hell. Voltarus recognized it immediately as a Hellhound. A dangerous, unnatural beast that was a common servant of stronger of outsiders or worshipers of Asmodeus. It was a common saying in his family that all those who broke a contract would eventually find themselves hunted by a pack of the beasts and dragged down to Hell. The thing howled and a burst of flame soared out over the crowd. Terrified protesters screamed and ran and trampled each other to get away. Nox showed no emotion. "Remember, dead ones are extra paperwork," they could hear her shout to the Dottari spreading out among the crowd. The protest was over; now there was only chaos.

    Luckily, Voltarus, Aphra, Jaem, and the Page were all towards the back of the crowd. Recognizing each others skill and knowing they had much to discuss, they quickly and efficiently picked a path to escape. In the confusion of the crackdown on the protest, they had no trouble at all in vanishing from the scene. Jaem took the lead throug the city streets, following the path his contact had taken. They just needed somewhere safe to lie low for a moment or two and catch their breath.

    While on their way to a possible safehouse, Jaem heard a commotion down a side alley looked around. He was greeted by a strange scene that made him pause. Four of the Chelish Citizens Group with the red bandannas were laying unconscious on the ground, while five more seemed to be beating a man almost to death. Though it was hard to tell, Jaem thought it was possible the unfortunate man was his contact he had seen moments ago, the man with one glove. "This doesn't concern you," one of them said, turning and seeing the group at the mouth of the alleyway. "Yeah, official business," said another with a hearty laugh as he stomped on the now unconscious mans face. The two groups stared at each other, wondering who would act first.

    OOC:
    Reinforcements arrive at the park, and the crowd begins to disperse. Voltarus Knowledge (planes):(12) + 9=21. Recognizes the Hellhound, knows it breaths fire and has a weakness to cold. You guys all manage to escape the protest successfully.

    Perceptions: Jaem= 20; Page= 13; Aphra= 9; Volatarus= 16. Jaem succeeds, hears the commotion in the alley.

    Initiative! Group:(20) +5= 25. This is ridiculous! Second twenty on initiative for you guys. Thugs:(6) +0= 6.

    You guys are up!
