The seductive vampire called out to the snake one “wait Nissa, maybe these witches just want to talk”. Other vampires come out of the trees and introduce themselves. The seductive one is named Daria, the snake one Nissa, Dru is the crazy one, and Thalia can meld out of trees. After talking to Daria for a while, they discover she does not know about vampires spreading AIDS (probably because she doesn’t care about mortals at all), although they do suspect she is hiding something.
Vincent appears between (flew in as bats) them and they both look very angry at each other. Vincent raises his shotgun and opens fire at Daria with incendiary rounds, the fire grievously wounding Daria. Daria dominates Marigold and makes her shield her to reduce the damage from further gunshots. Nissa bites Adilha with her snake hands and Adilah retaliates with her knife, wounding her. Sionnach shoots at Daria causing some minor damage. Ben fires at Nissa hurting her some more. Dru starts her crazy ramblings again, giving the PCs penalties. Thalia touches Nissa and “consumes” her wounds, turning them into blood. Vincent shoots Daria again, causing so much of her to burn that it is likely she would have been turned to ash if it had not been for the mage shield. Daria fails to keep her composure in the face of so much deadly fire and she runs away screaming. Nissa summons snakes from blood that attack Ben, poisoning him. Adilah stabs Nissa again, Marigold no longer being given commands from Daria acts of her own free will again and uses life magic to control the snakes and make them leave Ben alone. Ben opens fire on Nissa again. Again Thalia heals Nissa. Several other vampires come out of the trees, surround and pin Marigold, one successfully bites her and begins draining her blood, also unintentionally transmitting HIV in the process. From out of the trees Pierre shows up, holds up a cross which glows white, causing the vampire biting her to turn to ash and the others to scatter. Nissa turns into a giant snake. She is much tougher in this form. Adilah tries to stab it again but is unable to hurt it through its tough scales. Sionnach uses fate magic to improve his luck to help cancel out Dru’s penalties. Ben shoots the snake again, causing some minor damage. Vincent, out of ammo with his shotgun, pulls out a flint-lock pistol and fires a magical flaming bullet into the snake, burning a hole in its scales, then runs off to chase the fleeing vampires. After Daria. Sionnach fires at Dru causing moderate damage. Dru runs off saying the prophecy will be fulfilled. Marigold heals herself. Pierre fires at Nissa, his shotgun doing minimal damage to her tough scales. Adilah stabs the snake, barely scratching it. Nissa Bites Adilah, piercing her with huge, sharp fangs. Ben fires at Thalia, causing moderate damage. Pierre and Sionnach both also shoot Thalia and Thalia runs into the tree and teleports away. Adilah stabs Nissa again, more effectively this time and again Nissa bites her, causing her to collapse unconscious in a pool of her own blood. Marigold heals Adilah, and she regains consciousness. Ben fires at the snake again, and with an incredibly well placed shot blows its head clean off. Blood and snake bits fly through the air and fall back down as ash, and the body turns to ash as well.
The hunters and other vampires show up looking worse for wear, especially the extremely bruised and bloodied hunters, but they looked happy. They killed most of the vampire minions, only a few managed to escape. When the PCs get back to their vehicles there is a cop car waiting, and after panicking and quickly hiding their weapons with the helps of Ben’s space magic, Marigold recognizes the officer as officer Jenny, a fellow mage. She offers to take Marigold to her hallow to heal up and have Dr. Morgan meet her there. The others decide to follow. Dr. Morgon heals the party, especially marigold and Adilah, of their wounds, leaving only minor wounds to heal naturally. He also cures Marigold of HIV and then returns to the hospital. Marigold and Pierre stay in the hallow for the next few days to rest and for Marigold to get her mana back while the other PCs return to the city to finish recovering themselves.
