And it's a Syl shape for that matter - I didn't even think about that when I picked that shape, I just had the thought that Morgana was using a shape similar to Aranwen to get close

Speaking of Aranwen...

What's its face going to look like when Kith uselessly tries to stab it there?

The face of the enemy

It's one of Morgana's masks... impact of the steel against the unknown material is like scraping against something very smooth.

Well, aren't you rather fiesty, dear Kithran?

The lips don't move when she speaks...

For the record

I got a 97 on the roll for Morgana ambushing Aranwen. As Aranwen expected, Morgana isn't inclined to attack Aranwen because she's not one of the targets. What she didn't expect was what Morgana said...

Oh yeah

As with all her masks, this one does have a high quality gem in the forehead - this one being emerald

I supoose...

...I could have gone further with that but, I found myself curious as to what the puppet's reacion might have been and didn't want to guess too much as this is technically Ch'dau's first encounter with such a thing.

Butterfly, feel free to carry on from the puppet's perspective or, if you prefer, just shoot me a note or two via PM and I'll carry on depending on what you decide to share.

Thanks.

Same!

I am in the same curious boat as Eol  PM me if you need it!

If she talks Kith might listen for a for a minute but anything otherwise or any chance for a sucker punch and she'll just keep stabby stabbing.

EDIT: Kith to the puppet: Hey, you there, with the stick hands.

Morgana's tactics...

With the loss of surprise as her usual and generally most effective tactic, her intention now with the puppet is to maintain a hold on either Ch'dau or Kithran for long enough to bind them by spell and thread (think hold person, but as a maintained touch to establish it and with threads rather than a mental paralysis effect), but with the appearance of Ch'dau she's switched target to primarily be aware of him. The single puppet is at a disadvantage with both Ch'dau and Kithran on the offensive. That said, somehow she still keeps track of Kithran's movements while inside of the apothecary.

Of course, the crux of this encounter is how she's able to keep track of Kithran, preventing her from striking precise enough to cut the strings that keep the puppet animated... like one of those dolls with strings inside the limbs for controlling them.

Alternatively, if her puppet is knocked back long enough for Kithran and Ch'dau to retreat from the apothecary, she does not pursue.

As you can also tell, she also tries to unnerve them enough to make some manner of mistake. Given she's not actually in the battle herself, she has the luxury of not being in danger while she tries to psych out the two of them.

Let me know if you need a specific response from her; otherwise, this should not actually take that long to wrap up, as far as encounters go. It's a retreat or incapacitate type encounter - Morgana cannot be killed here, but her puppets can certainly be made to stop moving, if temporarily.

So

We are able to see the strings holding the limbs together? It might be something, say, Kith might be able to take note of as it reached back for her?

Not quite yet

The cloak obscures the limbs - damage the cloak more, and the limbs become more visible. If they can see the doll's major joints in particular, they can see the threads inside of the ball joints

Though, a careful examination of the hand would show the threads in each ball joint there too

I didn't even design that to work out this way, but it makes me giggle that the enemy Aranwen couldn't defeat is one that she could have been able to with Kithran's help. Yay synergy!
