"If you're real, I'm sorry." You say, generating a telekinetic tug on Tayn. You pull him down at first, and then he quickly disappears in a puff of smoke. You use the force to pull the weapon spinning through the air, back over to Van Skewer.
He lets out a defiant cackle as his clawed fingers wrap around the stock, lowering the barrel in one smooth motion as he braces his gun with the hand already holding a pistol. "Now, let's spice things up a bit, Amelia." He croons. You see the sides of the barrel illuminate with a pair of blue lines, blinking along to give the image of movement. He fires the gun once, but every figure in the mist on his side disappears. You also see a large number of bullet holes in the deck at the edge of the mist.
You clear the remaining ones on your side with a blast of cold, ice tearing through the mist with unbridled fury. "I'm tired of whisking through shadows; Reveal yourself!" You shout to your attacker.
"I already have. Do you really expect someone with my abilities to come out of hiding just because you asked?" The man's voice rings out from the mist.
"That's ventriloquism." Van Skewer whispers over to you. "Not the party trick, but the spell. He has to be within sight of it, and its point of origin is above the deck."
You look around, examining the surroundings. You can see only a few places he'd be able to see from while hiding from you. One is a spot atop the foredeck, a few crates sitting between the stairs that block your view. Atop the aft deck, near where the doppel-Tayn was, there are plenty of barrels to conceal even a human-sized observer, as well as a tall railing. Finally, there's the crow's nest, a strange place on the ship used for viewing things far off.
