So! The Platinum Priestess really was responsible for building the Walls between Hell and Earth! (Or, at least, partially responsible, anyway.) And Flyboy was so flabbergasted, he let something slip that he shouldn’t have!

What part did The Platinum Priestess play in the building of the Walls? What are those things out on that ledge? What makes them a “last resort”? And was Mitch able to change the topic fast enough?!

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

Armament for a whole D&D party. Plus one party member.

I wonder why PP was the only one left alive. Was it because she prefered it that way?


Well, I see two possibilities.

Either the process of building the Walls was so difficult, the other adepts died…

Or Sircea sacrificed the others to power the spell. Knowing that human sacrifice is not beyond her, I’m assuming the latter.

As for the Gallery o’ Stuff: I’m thinking that the various items might hold either the power of the other magicians who built the walls, or possibly their souls. Either way, a finite resource she’s unwilling to spend unless absolutely necessary,


On an unrelated note, is it just me or does past!Sircea look a bit older than her modern incarnation, even pre-depowering? She even dresses more conservatively (relatively).


I think this is a great guess!


Ha! Yes.

And that’s a very good question, Klaus.

I like how you’re thinking about this, Nate.

Very interesting. :slight_smile:

We’ve only seen her at work before. This is her bumming-around-the-house attire.:smiley:

Sircea shows up in a haute couture dress

“Oh this? This is my casual outfit, dahling.”

It’s true I can’t picture her hanging out in capri pants and a baggy sweatshirt. :slight_smile:
