The group thanked Lady Annona, and began to make their way towards The Empire State Building, following the streets. Lady Annona’s protection was evident, as the group passed numerous packs of zombies prowling the streets, which ignored them.
After about 25 blocks, there was a woman’s scream of terror from a nearby building. The group charged into the building, to rescue the damsel in distress, seeing about a dozen kids being attacked by a Sister (Irina Shayek, (Magog)). As Irina fired at the kids, the oldest girl put up a shield of water that seemed to dissipate the bullets. Tauriel fired at Irina, hitting her in the left arm. The girl who shielded herself, moved the kids into one of the open elevators. Andrea leaped at Irina, missing as Irinia sidestepped Andrea’s leap. Eric charged Irina with his sword, sliced her left arm, injuring her. Vlad drank his Potion of Fight. Cassie threw Fire at Irina, the fireball hitting Irina, blowing off the flesh of her right leg. Alex fired at Irina, missing. Irina became a ‘WoW Succubus’ and said, “Two can play at that game” and hurled a ball of Hellfire at Cassie, hitting he, seriously Burning her severely. Tauriel fired at Irina, injuring her right arm. Andrea slammed Irina in the revealed metal leg, ripping off her right leg. Eric attacked Irina with his sword, dodging his attack. Vlad pulled a dagger and threw it at Irina, hitting her in the right eye, dropping her, a coin rolling towards Vlad, who avoided it, along with Loiosh. Andrea slipped gloves on and picked up the coin, wrapping it in a handkerchief and slipping it in her bag.
The group approached the elevator, Andrea, calming the children down, the eldest asking where they came from, the oldest introducing herself as Sarah, who told the group that they were trying to get home, which was a fortress that used to be a library, led by Donna Moroder. Sarah led the group, along with the kids, to the Library, which was a virtual fortress with walls made out of cars and busses, tanks, guard towers. Sarah led Cassie first to the infirmary, to get her arm treated. Sarah then led the group to Donna, in the same room she originally met them in, working at a computer. Sarah introduced the group, Donna amazed they took on a “Sister”. Donna asked for the coin, and Andrea handed it to her, it dropping to the ground, Andrea stopping Sarah from getting it. Andrea quickly, and with little breath, explained the current plan.
Donna told the group of a portal to Shadow in the ruins of Madison Square Garden, guarded by a tribe of kobolds living there, and that they could use the watch to find the island in Shadow, and access the tear in time to get to the point where time was changed and that correcting the timeline would send them back to the point where they first blacked out.
The group debated their next move, Sarah offering to go with the group. Vlad gave Sarah a potion to conceal her, and headed out for the Empire State Building. Rubble blocked the streets around the ESB, House and Cassie recognizing pieces of Olympus itself. Cassie and Eric started combing through the rubble, finding the items needed, as well as Athena’s body
