    Ben, crashing into things seems to a be a calling. Glad you’ve decided to embrace it.

    • BaronHaynes

      And swearing, too!

        “Did you hear him!?
        Did you hear him!?
        Oh, the monster overbearing!
        Don’t go near him!
        Don’t go near him!
        He is swearing!
        Yes, SWEARING!”

        And the funniest part is that Mal was probably too caught up in the magic beam to catch it.

  • …and Ben gets the Malley-Vision?

    • Sanjay Merchant

      And O’Malley can do actual wizardry?

    • That’d be awesome.

    • David Argall

      That would be the first guess, but another is that both of them gain the vision, or part of it. And then there is the question of can it be reversed?. Since he can only steal what he does not have, Voss would not be able to take the vision away if they both had it.

      • Silly Zealot

        I think he could steal whatever share of the vision Ben got. If he got any share at all, that is.

        • David Argall

          Voss’ talent was described as letting him steal whatever ability he didn’t have. So if he has gained any degree of ability to see spirits, he can no longer steal that ability from others no matter what amount of ability he or they may have. So unless Voss got nothing, Ben is “safe”.

          • Silly Zealot

            I don’t think that is how it works.
            And besides, Voss wouldn’t have Ben’s share of it. One of the defining traits of envy is that, even if everyone has the same amount of stuff as you, you still want it.

    • If Mr Thackeray could see the malforms as well as desummon them, then he could decrease his workforce by one third, which is certainly going to help his competitiveness against Herr Voss’ operation and he won’t have to clean up so often.

    • Just what I was thinking!

    • noidea

      I would guess the vision will go loose through the town, big panic o/

  • Voss takes an Attack of Opportunity when trying to use his spell-like ability? >.>

    • r2d2go

      Nah, that was a readied action. The trigger is “O’Malley does something idiotic” and the specified action is “stop him”. He spends most of his standard actions on it.

      • AJ

        Nerrrrrrrds! :)

  • See kids, all problems really can be solved with violence

    • JediaKyrol

      If violence isn’t solving your problem…you clearly aren’t using enough of it.
      also…everything is legal as long as there are no cops around…I learned that gem from a Disney cartoon.

  • Nightsbridge

    Okay. Normally I dislike Ben. But not right now. I think he’s won me over here.

  • Qwefg Lockheart

    And the worst case scenario had just happened. The spell was disrupted and we all know that magic sight isn’t natural. I am willing to bet that “spirit vision” goes wild since it isn’t tethered to anyone at the moment.

  • wanderingdreamer

    Ah, the simple solutions are the best!

  • Oh…

    • Unless, y’know, I’m completely wrong and it just bounces back to Mal. CURSES WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR FRIDAY TO KNOW

  • Euodiachloris

    I love it: the “if in doubt, pull the plug” school of thought. ^_^

  • Nin

    Oh, Ben. You are awesome. I always knew it!

  • BaronHaynes

    Woah. Maybe the vision is just lost, since it was pulled out of Mal but no one received it?

    • QueenBol

      Oh man that would both be horrible and exciting cuz MAN will Wolfe be pissed :D

  • awhorl

    What is happening/what happens next might depend on how Mal got the vision in the first place, and if that green squirk is JUST vision or a package of stuff. Spose we turn around and find out that Mal the Human is really a . . . a . . .

  • Silly Zealot

    Man, that stealing ray was slow if Ben could talk to himself so much!

  • Mia

    OMG OMG just received my copy of Darken :D woohoo thank youse much Kate!

  • Gravejoke

    Well, well, well, the Mage interrupts the spell with an attack!

  • Ciara
