A final charge, the air ruptured as a bolt of elemental lightning burst from Truth and Justice.
Curren gasped as Truths blade fractured, splintering into shards.
Burning ozone filled the air as the lightning exploded into the stone head, a serpentman blistered and then exploded as the lightning passed by it.

Another serpentman lunged for the miniscule form of Drake, however the gnome was quicker.

'Fitch' danced a merry dance, weaving between the serpents.
Curren stood shaking his head at his broken blade, before sensing the impending reaction, diving for cover he shouted to Drake.
The Gnome hit the ground, Fitch leaping behind a rock as the stone head broke apart releasing a wave of energy that tore across the clearing, flattening it.

Dust, gravel and copius quantities of grass seeds were thrown into the air forming a raging cloud, which promptly billowed across the clearing completely enshrouding the Crusaders.
Drake was lifted and hurled across the dirt, Curren left coughing and spluttering, Fitch rasping and snarling.
Each felt as if they'd been pummelled as the escaping energy battered them.

After several long minutes the cloud dispersed, revealing the scene of carnage the ruined forms of the serpent men.

The Crusaders breathed a sigh of relief it had been a long hard fight.

As Curren's relief and adrenaline faded; he realised that he only held the hilt of Truth in his hand. The sword had shattered with the energy that had been passed through it. Just a sharp shard of the metal was still attached to the hilt.

'Ah, bollocks!' He snarled in frustration. 'Now what am I to do?'

'And did this in fact hold some deeper meaning?' He thought. 'If the truth had failed, could the crusaders continue their journey to find the truth about the Gagglepuss?'
'Damn these tests.' he thought as he shook his head.

Something else far more urgent was nagging at his mind, and with a start the memory returned.

'Oh no. Nebs!' he exclaimed as he looked around for his companion of whom he had seen wounded during the melee.

Casting his sight around and eventually through the smoke, wreckage and cadavres Curren saw the rotund form of Nebblesworth.

As the Crusaders reached his prone form, they saw that a grey discolouration had covered his entirety, even his clothing and great coat.
The tubby goblin looked quite serene.

Fitch twitched uncomfortably, grinding his fangs.

'Ah shit... Nebs!' his concern evident, Curren dashed over to the goblin.

Looking upon the still form of 'Nebblesworth', a thought occured to both Crusaders, he was a spirit.
As they reminded themselves of this fact, the realisation hit them that 'Nebs' aura was not one of him being dead, more that he was in a form of spiritual stasis.

"Sssso waz uze doinz, juz stanin zez" snarled Fitch angrily

The astral winds gathered and flowed across the clearing.
Currens hand rested upon the stone like form of 'Nebs', he focused calling the mana to the form.

For a long while nothing happened, nothing stirred.
Fitch gnashed his teeth, figgeted and then stalked off to the edge of the clearing, swiping chunks out a serpentmans corpse before retreating to the outskirts.

The clearing became deathly silent as the Crusaders watched time slip by, Curren pushing the energy of the planes into the still cold form of Nebblesworth.

A strong breeze picked up across the blasted clearing, Drake's dreadlocks lifted by it, dust washed across the Crusaders.
A shock of energy jolted from Malthalamus Curren's hand, the dust spreading into a circular arcane pattern, a darker soot lying upon the sandy ground.

Nebblesworths form flickered to such an extent that he vanished only to then appear again, Curren wrestled with the threads of power, the spirits form was different from anything he'd encountered previously.

After a battle, the energies subsided, Curren opened his eyes, a solemn silence settled over the companions as the dust clear, Nebs form had gone.

'Eh?' Curren mouthed in confusion; which quickly turned to fear for their astral helper. He dug through his memories on what may have gone wrong, trying to pinpoint the breakdown of the formulae he was attempting.

He dared not let go of what remained of Nebblesworths form; lest he lose him forever.
Have I heard of this happening before when others have tried to bind a spirit? Do I need to attempt to reform it? Is Nebs still present in some form in the Ether? What is so different about him rather than other elementals/beings.

Do I feel like I am weaker for the attempt? I.e a magic point has been lost?

Is Nebs actually resisiting my attempt?

Curren wracked his brain, he had to admit that such things as Allied Spirits and the like were not his speciality, it hadn't felt like Nebs had resisted, more like he'd just slipped away.

It was then that the companions in unison looked up as a figure stepped around the remnants of the stone head, Nebs doffed his bowler hat and looked somewhat impatiently at the disbelieving faces.

He seemed more solid somehow, more substantial "Wazall gawpin az!" he growled before rather nonchalantly wandering back onto the track and off ahead of the companions.

What has just happened? Was I successful? Or did Nebs just regenerate?
Is Fitch as surprised as I am?

So what does this mean?
Did I invest a magic point into him? Is he now an allied spirit?
Or did I essentially just heal him?
