Default The Deep Umbra (Jocelin, Tues. 4/3/07)

When you come to, you see that your silver cord is no longer attached to your body. You're no longer tumbling, but you do seem to be drifting... West? North? You see the full moon somewhat lower in the sky than it was before, and also in a more southerly direction compared to New Orleans.

When you look down, it takes a little time but eventually you recognize the western coastline of Alaska resolving under you. You look to the west, and you can see Russia from where you are! Nobody who was above the mansion in New Orleans is within sight.

What now?

The Justicar does not answer. You hear a faint clicking sound off in the distance, from a south-ish direction. A squint that way reveals something vaguely... insectile in form approaching you. It seems to be moving much more slowly than you, your allies, and your foes did during the battle above the dome.

Jocelin says a prayer to St Anthony, and then goes to investigate the clicking thing

As you move towards it, you see it's kind of like a hybrid between a praying mantis and a human. There's a second pair of arms extending outwards from just above the hip bones, and all four arms are insectile. The legs still seem human. The head is definitely more mantis than human.

At a distance of about 1,000 yards, you realize the clicking is some form of communication, and that there's more than one of them. Maybe 8-10 all told.

It's not Morse Code. It may be like Morse Code, but you can't really understand it. There are no dots and dashes, f'r instance.

From what distance, approximately?
