Iskandar and Aeloru feel like although there are hints of madness and despair in the voice and it is not be telling you the whole truth plus changing a few details, it honestly just wants out and wouldn't attack those that freed them. In the other hand there may be enough room to push the being inside to a greater reward for freedom, but trying to force their hand too far may end angering them.

Dyson's memory confirms that the 381th celestial host back in the time of Asmodeus did exist and roughly 75,174% followed Asmodeus to hell. There's also records of roughly 12,1521% of fallen angels regreting their choice in the next century and trying to escape. Several were dragged back to Asmodeus by the Inevitables themselves for their servitude had been sealed by the Pact Primeval. One of them was named Lucius.

Since Asmodeus seems to have broken/violated the Pact Primeval, could Lucius' contract of servitude be viewed as nullified (by an Inevitable...)?

Everybody can see some smoke coming out of Dyson's head as it computes through the infernal clauses of the Pact Primeval, but after a minute and six seconds the inevitable can 100% rule that a lawful release is in order due to exceptional circumstances em situ.

After the long pause, Dyson proclaims in an even more mechanical voice than usual "Lucius of the 381st, I hereby release you on agreement that you will join us in battle as the final penance for your crimes. This release is largely predicated upon the unique circumstances of the multiverse presently, specifically concerning Asmodeus' abandonment of his primary role, which is in violation of the Pact Primeval, and which nullifies any claims that he has upon your soul."

Having said this, he then strikes the weapon with his own conjured psionic weapon with a blow calculated to do the most damage possible (Greater Insightful Strike).

There is a long eerie silence in the castle, then suddenly the sounds of battle again. But different from last time, the sounds of metal and lighting instead of flesh and fire.

Iskandar readies himself, his sand kukris in hand as the commotion begins.

Dyson says "These units are malfunctioning. We must decommission them."
Roll twice and take best for init:
Rolled 1d20+10 : 13 + 10, total 23

Rolled 1d20+10 : 9 + 10, total 19

The inevitables glitched actions give you an opening to act first.

OOC: SO... what kind of inevitables are these things, and what does Dyson (or... maybe more likely... Vist) know about their capabilities?
K:Planes 1d20+11 : 8 + 11, total 19

K:Planes 1d20+11 : 9 + 11, total 20

K:Planes 1d20+11 : 16 + 11, total 27

Dyson says to Lucious “A quarut, varakhut, and archived prototype that was meant to guard against dimensional breaches. Target the third. It has the ability to nullify some of my powers. Be warned that it has formidable elemental powers, and is immune to most elemental attacks. It also typically has a sound-based attack based on enforcing order, although given its currently corrupted state it is perhaps likely that this attack may not function as initially intended (OOC: it normally can cast Dictum). We may wish to envelop ourselves in a barrier that protects against sonic attacks.”

It is obvious that there are similarities between Dyson and this other prototype inevitable; to the point that you might guess that they were different branches off the same project. There are notable differences, however, such as the new inevitables increased number of limbs.

Vist

*Sigh* Vist flicks the back of his hand in a downwards motions and a well of inky dark blue clouds with luminous glistening specks of frost surges up from the elaborate tiling of the palace.

Aeloru stands, rising, and her clothing adopts a black hue as she casts another amulet forth--this one striking forth at the Quarut before exploding in a wash of light!

And then she got behind the others.

Dyson shields himself from elemental damage and activates the Machine Cog, and then uses his boots to warp space around him to appear adjacent to the Varakhut  inevitable and deliver a carefully calculated blow to it, aimed at its most vulnerable spot using the shimmering blade he had manifested from his mind earlier. He then blinks briefly out of and back into existence again in the same spot and attacking it again, but instead swinging with what looks like a wild haymaker rather than a calculated blow. He then beckons with one hand towards Aeloru, and she feels time speed up around her, granting her a new round of actions (White Raven Tactics).

Enemy after enemy, battle after battle, you manage to stand your ground as the castle’s defenses around you crumble down bit by bit until the very ceiling and walls are gone and you find yourselves fighting on top of the floor remains, miracolously held aloft by the random combination of powers unleashed by all the planar forces converging in your position, gravity itself starting to behave in strange ways. Or maybe it was a true miracle, a last gift from the weakened gods to at least give you some stable surface to stand on as Vist continued creating a new plane from the genesis scroll.

In the last moments a true torrent of angels and demons, devils and eladrins, slaads and inevitables rushed to your position now that you were in the open. Some of previous enemies that had escaped you before, several new, all drawn by the Skull of Setrous. Luckily Tymio still stood with some of her guardians, while the general of Light himself appeared riding his shadow dragon and flanked by his honor guard, providing some distraction for you to hold the line, all the while the maddened outsiders started turning on each other to try to be the ones to reach the Skull of Setrous in your possession.

As Vist spoke the last words and drew the final runes, the Genesis scroll glowed brightly before imploding, creating the passage to a new world, a vault where the wizard could seal himself with the cursed artifact. This ritual left Vist tired, more tired he could ever remember or even dreamed possible, but he can feel it’s been worth it, all worth it, all the work and planning he put forth, the new plane will serve well as a safe place for countless generations, and the planes will have a chance to heal once the skull of Setrous cannot spread its nefarious influence anymore. At this very moment it seems to be screaming louder than before, leading the outsiders around you to even greater heights of frenzy, threatening, demanding and begging you to don’t go inside that new place where nobody will be able to listen to it, but you’ve learned well how to resist its call by now. However Tymio’s voice also speaks inside Vist’s mind before he has time to step inside his final home:

“Wonderful, I had my doubts at the very end, that yours was a foolish desperate gambit, but I had faith in you all and now you’ve succeeded. I’ll make sure your saga is told to all, present and future. If you have any last words that you would like shared with others, public or private, I’ll do everything in my power to make it happen whatever happens next.”
