Become a Titan
Sister Flare turns to Cal curiously as she speaks in response.
"I suppose, though we have yet to hunt down the summonor of these creatures, they were tools to sow chaos."
Shepherds phone chirped. A text was sent to him from someone named Syl. "busy?" was all it said .
Shepherd texted her back.
"Portals with monsters opening, could use help"
"In the end there can be only one" The Highlander
"so you are aware of the issues on hand, We've been tracking similar situations all around the globe. Would you be interested in meeting? We're at the Daily Grind coffee house " syl
Sister Flare turned to Shepard and inquires.
"This is a unresolved issue, and I aim to aid you until the end."
Shepherd turned his attention to Sister Flare.
"Glad to have your help. I am contacting these girls I met earlier for some extra help since we can use all the help we can get with this purge."
"why dont you meet us here, we need to show you alot." Syl replied in her text. "If youre dealing with the fissures we've been picking up , i'm sure there is alot of info we can share with each other. " She then sent pics of the tome Sister flare saw in her vision, and the orb. "i think its all related to these somehow"..she said after the pics were sent.
Shepherd looked at Sister Flare as he showed her the picture on the phone.
"Is this what you saw/ Because if it is my contacts have been investigating this an asked us to meet up with them in a local coffee house. I can teleport us there right now."
Cal walked over to stand beside Shepherd. "I'm with ya til' we got this sitchy-ation handled, pardner."
Putting yourself in another persons shoes emotionally is something that everyone has to experience eventually. It's part of learning to be a human being. Roleplayers do it for fun.
"We could use the help."
"I'm in," said Rhythiel. "I'm sure this will make my mother... extremely pissed off." She smiled.

If you can't see an image I've posted, please let me know!
Sister Flare nodded to Shepard, stating firmly.
"Yes, that is the same tome. And please, by all means take us there." She then turns to Rythiel in a rare bout of humor.
"I am going to assume you didn't brew well together." Is she...smiling?
Shepherd then sent another text.
"On our way now." he loke on to the others.
"Hold on.' we will be teleporting there now."
As they grabbed on to him they teleported to the coffee house.
.......A few weeks later.......
The creatures lurked in the alley in the dark of night, Waiting for an oppurtunity to strike. While a few blocks over , soaring high two more grotesque humanoid/animal figures swooped silently through the air lookig for prey. The last figure sat perched atop an older building, standing perfectly still in the shadow of a roof arch. Only the two small red eyes staring out from the darkenss would reveal its presence.
Beeping noises alerted the woman sitting in a coffee shop , staring at a data pad. The Man with her had pure white hair and was alerted to the sounds as well. "Dammit, not again" Roxicon said as she showed the pad to her companion. " At least we can be alerted to thier happening now " Blue said as he read the data.
"Everyone's in egypt,......just us " Roxi reminded Blue. "Thought syl was coming back, " Blue added. "I asked her to stay seeing the grand size of the events unfolding, she could help im sure" Roxicon reiterated. " Then lets go, " blue said he he stood and pulled his shades back down over his eyes. "We need to cut whatever came out off before it does any real damage" .....Then he pulled out his phone and sent a text to his neighbor..."Tracking more portal activity within the city, may need help, heading to here now" then he added the adress from the data pad, a local charity thrift store, near an old warehouse. when he copleted the text he hit send and sent it to Pat. As he was was about to bolt out of the door he took his phone out again. "Dont have many other numbers in here yet, if you could call anyone to assist........" And sent her the second text. Then in a blink he and roxi were gone. Thier superspeed took them to the adress in no time. They began to look around.
A pair of dimly glowing yellow eyes watched the two arrivals from the shadows in an alley. The scent of blood of his last kill still literally dripped from his teeth and off his chin. At his feet the carcass of a stray cat lay picked apart. He moved closer to track his targets, but kept his distance in case they would see him as prey or threat.
“The story so far: In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” -Douglas Adams
Roxicon stared at the small screen on her display. "This is rediculous" she thought. Then she put the data pad in her pocket, and closed her eyes. Sending mental waves like a sonar out in every direction, she could sense life everywhere. people mulling about thier business , some asleep , birds roosting for the night, street cats clamouring about. Everything.....she could hear the thoughts, sense the heartbeats......she even felt the prying eyes gazing on her. Not perceiving them as the threats they came to hunbt down, she dismissed it......Roxicons mental and scionic abilities were tremendous. She stood in the middle of the street, her natural red hair up in a ponytail , and she was dresssed in her trademark purple spandex with revealing cutouts on her thighs, back, stomach, and arms. Her black leather boots laced up to her knee almost shined even with the dull streetlights. She could manipulate things kinectically as well. Down to the molecular level. She waited and listened and tuned in on what she thought the main threat from the portal was. As she did this, her ever vigilant companion, Blue, stood by her. Ever the guardian of his beloved, he made sure she was undistrubed. His ice manipulation and super speed kept things at bay many a time she tranced to seek waht they needed.
"there " she said with her eyes still closed, and she gestured down an alley away from the yellow peering eyes. "4 of them that werent here a mere 10 minutes ago. "
Blue nodded and then the readied to go. When roxi opened her eyes again, she was staring back at the yellow eyes from the other alley. She sent a mental message.
"Hello there " is all she said hoping the creature could hear it in its mind.
The greeting jarred him. Instincts told him to get away, but he knew this alley was blocked on the other side. He could climb it, but if she could sense him here she would know where he ran. He went to speak out a response but his hello came out snarled and guttural.
Roxicon was torn, the alley creatures were a huge threat, she thought, but this one, is he? She spoke up, "Blue dear...go, i'll be fine" as she stared at those yellow eyes she could sense what she thought was fear and apprehension. She also sensed something else.......Above high circling....."Dammit" She thought to herself....watching Blue dissapear with a flash around the corner to confront the 4 alley things, she looked up and saw what appeared to be giant bat like things circling ."They must sense me, or him....." she thought as she quickly glanced at the eyes in the alley. "MY SCIONICS".....she gasped outloud. "They must track it" she closed her eyes and thought for a second , sending another comforting message to the stranger in the alley "Do not be afraid " is all she said . With that the flyers dove.......
He sensed the movement of the creatures and shifted into an attack stance. He took note the violet woman was not a threat, but knew by their smell the creatures diving were more than dangerous. She had gone out of her way to tell him he wasn't a threat, so he chose to do the same.
As the lead bat got close enough, the sounds of paws landing and claws digging into concrete started with rapid frequency and charged near Roxicon. Before they got too close, he leapt, roared, and in full view the great furry hide would intercept the creature. The wolfman quickly dug his claws into the beast's wings and torso, biting in a frenzy at the neck.
The startled and shocked batlike creature took the full force of the wolfman's assault. Its flesh tore away from its wings and back, it's neck was crushed between powerful canines and it struggled to even catch a breath let alone do anything else. Startled roxi witnessed the attack , but recivered quickly and riased her hand at the second diving bat thing. It stopped in mid flight....and just stood there motionless in air. She caught it in a kinetic trap. She held it there with her will, being surpringly far superior than her opponents. "It's like you dont have a mind of your own" She stated out loud as she approached it. "Can't even fight back..you must be so far away from your masters".......Then she donned a wicked look..."You still are a threat....however" with that she swung the creature like it was attached to an invisible handle and smashed it face first into the ground. She lifted it again and smashed down. After doing this a second time , she had heard the snapping of the neck. then she released it and it fell like a limp rag doll . She dialed her phone..."department of sanitation?"..she muttered.." I need a cleanup on Aramingo ave near Greene st"...........she had turned to see her new ally finishing off the other one easily.
Slowly calming from the frenzy, the wolfman looked back at Roxi while still pinning his kill. The yellow eyes clearly reflected his view of her as friend, and his thirst sated long enough to completely regain control.
The wolfman stood on his hind legs as his frame appeared to shrink and become less and less hirsute. He quickly ran to the side of a nearby dumpster and draped himself in the blanket he had left there days before. It was sufficient covering, even providing a hood for his disfigured face. It failed to put it completely into shadow, and the half-muzzle of a dog sat underneath the mostly human eyes, save for their still dimly glowing yellow appearance. When he spoke, his voice had a gruff bark to the words, but the tone still managed to fight through, "Are you all right?"
"Oh yes , I'm fine . How are you? " Roxi replied. She stood showing no fear and with an inner strength and leadership quality. " Not to dispense with the pleasantries then end so abruptly" she continued , I Need to go assist my other half. She refferred to Blue in the other alley tangling with the rat like man beasts. She slowly bowed to her new friend and went to speed away. "That is , unless you want to help further" she paused.
In the alley Blue fought the 4 rat things with the grace of a hockey enforcer. He slammed one down with strength simultaneously freezing its throat solid in his vice like grip. Then seeing another lunge while he was down , shot a frozen spike that hit the lunging one in its eye socket and sent it crumbling to the ground. He stood up and faced the other two with an arrogant smirk. They sneered and charged.
The mechanical construction of Unit One came running in leaping from building to building the 8 foot tall robot was streamlined like a robotic ninja complete with weapons. "Unit Two online. Data transmission good. Target acquired"
Then with a flip into the air it smashes into a bat creature driving sai blades into it's flesh. Forcing the beast to crash down to the ground under the weight of the robotic form. Just before impact Unit Two leaps off and lands into a battle stance. Spotting the Wolfman and Roxi "Madam watch out..." of course there was no real reason Unit one wouldn't know that the wolfman wasn't one of the creatures brought through the rift. He was about to throw the Sai when the audio receivers picked up the talk. "Oh sorry sir I didn't realise you're not one of them." Unit one returned the sai to the hoster and moved closer. "My boss would so chew me out for judging on appearance."
Personal rules of good roleplay
1.) Nothing goes as planned.
2.) If it goes as planned it's not good RP
Shepherd patrolled the streets more frequently after the events that happened a few weeks ago. If there were any new creatures he would find them. The Ghostwalker jumped from building to building, scanning the city.
The wolfman was about to respond to Roxi before the newcomer arrived and slashed into a bat-creature. He slunk into the shadows as best he could at the direct apology. The glowing yellow eyes betrayed his position; never blinking and never losing focus. He could smell the blood, and instead he decided to let the wolf become dominant again and he raced on all fours to the next alley where more prey awaited.
After studying the fight for a moment, he charged and lunged to pin one of the easier ratmen to the ground, biting and slashing his claws as before.
Blue ducked as a large figure hurtled past him quick and agile but feral at the same time. The startled rat thing never knew what hit him. It shreiked in a god awful bray that was like nails on a chalkboard. It struggled very briefly before succumbing to the dagger like claws and viscious canines of its foe. Blue watched the wolfman litteraly shred the rat like creature and as he readied an ice spike he heard a voice in his head. He looked over at the wolfman and when thier eyes met gave a subtle nôd of acceptance. The remaining rat thing should have fled , it should have run and run far. It's group was just dispatched quickly and effortlessly by thier collective foes. It however didn't run, it attacked. It jumped at the wolfman gnashing teeth and swinging its rat like
Unit Two responded lifting his arms and throwing stars shoot out of each arm into the attacking Rat thing. "Okay when my boss said it be like a video game I never thought he meant it for real. Sure enough Giant rats a trademark of every RPG that ever been." A total of three stars sunk into the left side of the rat as it leaped at the Wolf man.
Shepherd started seeing different auras through out the city that did not belong in this realm. as he jumped down to an alley to investigate closer.
The remaining rat creature took the stars with a shrill and rolled over on its side . Still twitching the rat thing tried to wriggle its way toward the wolfman still.
Rhythiel soared through the night sky. She now wore trousers and a halter top, instead of the dress that lasted thirty years in the cooler only to be shredded on her first day out. This outfit was made of much tougher materials, and the blue color contrasted nicely with her red skin as well. The holes her resignation had left in her soul and body alike were much smaller, as well, and were covered by adhesive bandages. Two of these holes, above her right horn and just below her left collarbone, were gone entirely, without leaving scars.
As she flew she noticed a commotion: growling, metal cutting into flesh, dissonance and harmony fighting for control of creation... Heading toward it she recognized Blue and Roxicon, as well as a robot and a lycanthrope she didn't know, all fighting a swarm of unusually large rodents. She flew in, as they defeated the last of the rodents. "More portal creatures?"
The wolfman was unable to avoid the rat creature and it sunk its teeth into a shoulder of fur. Retaliating, the wolfman palmed the ratman's head in one clawed hand, digging deep and flinging the creature into the wall with excessive force. Feeling the sting in his wound, He fell further into the wolf, looking more like a large grey wolf than a hybrid. A howl to the moon and his wound began to close. The wolfman turned around to look at Blue.
At this point Roxi had sped her way to the alley to join the troup. Blue stood meeting the yellow eyed gaze of the wolf. He didnt feel threatened and wanted to make sure the beast didnt either. As roxi approached she said to blue and the wolf telepathically... "play nice boys, we're all on the same team" she wanted to reassure Blue , and thier new friend. Seeing Rythiel land now she smiled and greeted thier other friend, making sure the wolf caught the friendly gesture to hopefully diminish any threat he would feel having a demon land next to the group. Then she greeted shepherd as well, bowing to the ghostwalker ally. Then finally she turned to the newcomer, the tall robotic being that dipatched one of the bat things, and attacked another of the rats. "Hello ", she said in a friendly manner, "I'm Roxicon Vorsza"....she smiled , then gestured towards Blue, "and that is my partner in love, life and all things dubious it appears, Blue"..her greeting was charming and inviting. Blue turned to meet the robot and nodded , then waved casually to Rythiel, and shepherd.
After the quick pleasentries, Blue answered Rythiels question. "well we picked up a portal opening in the city again, but these are different, the creatures come forth like mindless drones programmed to attack, not scattered and lost like the last bunch. They're not from other worlds, so our scans indicate, but somehow magicially mutated to server a master. The egypt team you know about are attempting to deal with the situation and thier last sit rep stated such. I think who ever is doin gthis is on to our attempt to stop them, so they're sending these things in as either a distraction or a show of force."
Three blocks over a portal swirled and the rift opened ......The demons had arrived..........There were alot of them, all sizes and shapes, winged, scaled, wormey, ....it was as if Hell itself had come to Titan city.
The wolfman looked up howled a warning about the portal. The shape shifted into more of the hybrid form as the beast stood on his back legs and looked at the gathered heroes. Gruffly and hoarse he announced, "We need backup to contain it all. Call who you can."
With that, the wolfman started racing toward the rift on all fours, ready to sink his claws and teeth into whatever he could grab.
As roxi watched listened to the wolfman and then watched him dart away, She stood confused for a breif second. Her data pad started beeping as it picked up the portal. "He sensed it before we saw it......" she said....then with a blink she was gone, heading to the direction of whatever may be trying to come through. Blue looked at Rythiel then back to the robot, "So much for down time " he smirked as he took off after roxi.
It only took a few seconds for blue and roxi to arrive at the still opened portal . There was a mangerie of filth pouring through at the site. "Holy hell" Blue muttered...."Exactly" roxi quipped. And with that they went into action......Blue seeing the wolfman already had a lizard like imp thing pinned that was nearly double his size and was proceeding to shred it from its back, turned and fired to ice spikes and a diving imp that was trying to attack the wolfman while busy. The ice spikes peirced the creature in the wing , and in the neck, sending it crashing to the ground a few feet away from thier ally. Roxicon, realizing the best way to try to defeat is to contain, she held some as they came out of the portal as best she could , so blue could either freeze them solid , only to be dropped and shattered, or put mor ice spikes through them, AS she held them , a small implike thing dove at roxi from behind.
Rhythiel flew toward the new portal, Listening to its energies, hoping to be able to close it off. She landed hard on an imp-like creature.
Rythiel heard the energies creating this portal,, she actually saw its creater, on the other side. The Woman was dressed in a long red and black gown, her hair was raven black, and she had an eerie aura about her. She drew on her own powers boosted by somethings else, Rythiel and heard this song before, However now, it was more of a background then main. The energies she knew were sustained and not accidently created and unstable. The caster kept her chant up and the line if hellspawn stood as each waited to enter the swirling field.
Roxi felt the diving imp and released some of her hold on afew of the other beasts. The imp kept its dive, but changed its target. It slammed into another snakelike thing and the two then proceeded to tear at each other. Seeing this blue knew she was turning them against each other as best she could. There were many, and she was only one. He then fired another spike and impaled another imp like thing, then turned and froze the one that had just managed to bite his leg. "Son of a...." He said angrily as he then hurled the frozen thing against the wall to shatter it. Looking down at his leg he cursed to himself......then paused to take in the events unfolding around him. Quickly freezing another he reached for his phone and sent a quick text.
Sitting at a table reading some thing on a laptop, Syl's phone chirped.....She looked down and then back at Jayde and Steel....."I gott go" is all she said .....then she vanished .
The two others looked concerned for they knew the sound in her voice wast a good one.
Another woman was walking out of famous rays, her new favorite eatery when her phone chirped. Looking down, she wasted no time, She was flying as fast as she could over the area......Lilly was on her way.
Shepherd noticed some familiar auras as he sensed a portal open. The Ghostwalker had teleported to the locaton of the portal as he summoned some of his crossblades ready to launch them at the creatures that appeared
Blue struggled to hold back the onslaught. The two winged demons before him were massive. they took turns striking out with thier many appendages including tails and claws. Hed freeze an arm, and get raked in theback by a tail. Roxi tried her best to aid her beloved, but she was barely keeping the beasts off herself. She was using her kinetics to hold as many as she could in place or throw them away from her. The welcomed spinning blue blades rained in on thier collective foes. They hit and struck with precise accuracy. Shepherd's arrival was most welcome.
Behind Roxi the air split, then there was a flash of light, Then a gasp and large grunting growl . Another flash, and a massive hulking rhino looking thing made of pure white light charged into the mellee....Sylvermyre had arrived. Her tanking form smashed a few of the smaller creatures without a thought. She stood in the center of a mob and smashed her foot into the ground. The current carried and knocked over some enemies. Then she made a snort like sound, and the large demons focusing on blue turned her way instead, hearing the challenge. Blue smiled to himself for a split second, and thought " you're in for it now dumbasses" ....As he kept the focus on firing his spikes and blasts to cull the horde, a familiar figure hovered overhead....with a blast of energy sent through him and all allies in the area, they would feel refreshed, and envigourated in an instant. Lilly floated to and fro , dodging attacks and healing as needed, she heal syl fast , then send a shot of healing magics toward blue. She got off the occasional blast of energy herself but she didnt hit nearly as hard as the others.......
The wolfman barked a thanks as he turned from target to another target as his frenzy peaked. The bloodlust built within him and he howled in the crescendo of his rage. The howl was deafening as it shared his strengths with his allies and drew his presence to the waves of demons to him. His sharp claws and teeth tore through every ounce of flesh that came close to him.
Lilly noticed as the wolfman shredded, hed take damage as well, keeping an eye on him shed send her healing auras and magics his way alot. Then she sent him a little booster.......His lifeforce was just increased, ...Roxi too went into more of a support role... shed hold as many as possible, then send boosting burts of kinetci energy to thier teamates. The wolfmans amazingly quick reflexes suddenyl became twice as fast. He'd feel lighter more nimble, full of energy and vigour like never before. Blue admired thier new friend, he enjoyed watching him bowl over a few enemies twice his size and have them finished off before they could even react. "Just like old times" Blue said to himself, sending a sheet of ice under the feet of som eof the ones in the back . Syl smashed and stomped anything close, and she was great at keeping thier focus on herslef. Lilly flew in and out, healing as needed.
During the mellee Roxi sent a telepathic mesage to rythiel ....."so what are you thinking?" she asked.. "We close it? or maybe go through and take the fight to them? can you tell if itll work two ways?".....
Shepherd had launched a half dozen more cross blades at the demons appearing and decided he needed something different to even the odds. The Ghostwalker then summoned the twins as the two guns appeared in his hands. Shepherd looked at the 2 guns he held in his hands with glowing blue runes inscribed on them and then began to fire away at the demons.
"I'm picking up multiple hostiles, damn someone spawned a boss battle or something?" He draws the sai then looks at them "I think I might need a weapons upgrade... activate DPS mod seven." The last part seemed to be to something else besides the party standing there. "Name Trol... er wait Call me Unit Two. At least Unit Two's Pilot." He lifted his arms and fired a few more of those ninja stars as in the distance a device launches into the air and starts flying in his direction.
Rhythiel tried something new, inspired by Cal. She'd not yet managed to conjure a rope, but a chain worked quite well. One end went back to the base of a street lamp, and wrapped around it three times. The other end shot forward, new links appearing as needed. If it went through the portal, it would pass the raven haired woman on her left... and then the weighted end would change direction, to wrap around her. Then Rhythiel would pull...
The striker, Rift appeared on a rooftop just inches from the ledge, quickly taking a step back to regain his balance. Long range teleports were useful, but sometimes, they had less-than-ideal placement. The portal gave a thooming sound as it shut behind him, drawing some attention from demons pouring out. "Strength in numbers?" He asked aloud, his distance from any other heroes making it a private, rhetorical statement. An imp dove towards the Striker, only to find itself short of a wing, and careening headfirst into the spinning blades of a VAC intake. The imp didn't get back up. "Small fry... Where's the fun stuff?" He muttered, splitting a hovering worm open with a powerful clawed slash. It flailed in pain on the rooftop for a moment until finally, it too stopped.
The heroes were getting their momentum up. They were starting to work together to reach peaks that they couldn't reach on their own. So then, the enemies should be throwing out their powerhouses soon enough to try to break through, and eliminate the support capabilities. Rift watched, and waited. His appearance might confuse him for a demon, that was certain, but the slain creatures around him would say otherwise.
Stalkers don't die: They simply... Disappear.
The career device arrived at Unit two's location where he swapped parts attaching guns and other long range weapons "Warning Mod Seven weaponry designed for Unit One. Caution is advised." "Yeah I know, Hey everyone this gear not 100% secure consider me more range type and less melee." He turned and fired a gatling gun at three approaching ... orcs? well they looked like Orcs big strong brutish beasts with tusks.
As rift appeared, he was'nt unnoticed. Roxi had caught his portal out of the corner of her eye. She cautiously watched as best she could , then noticed he was fighting on thier side. A smile and a quick telepathic "Thank you for the assitance" was sent his way. Then she turned and shot a reflex booster at the already nimble lizard, not totally sure it would even work.
Blue fired ice spikes at the mouth of the portal hoping to send one through. They kept hitting the oncoming imps however they did provide enough distraction. The chain flung from Rythiel found it's mark . It passed through the upper corner of the portal just sneaking by an imp that was felled by an ice spike. The chain weaved its way through and struck Syndra in the back as it looped around her left leg.
Lilly hovered over the wolfman now , sending healing wave anf boosting energies down as fast as possible, He had drawn even more attention , and the Imps were starting to swarm him like gnats. Gnashing and slashing, theyd dive in and then dart away. Hed catch two or three with his mighty swipe, only to have 4 more join..... Some were felled by Shepherds blazing guns. Shepeherds bullets were holding back by themselves another wave of hideous creatures. His rounds would come in and drop the beasts on top of each other in a pile.
When the chain caught Syndra's leg, she screamed , Rythiel could see her frantic, not thinking it was even possible. her arrogance had her convinced she was unstoppable. AS she fell to the floor she chanted a real quick spell, then tossed 4 small stones through the portal . SHe was still wrapped with the chain , and she struggled to free herself. SHe barked orders at he mindless dron clones, but they did little as they couldn't understand. Two had grabbed the chain, but did little more than just hold it.
The small stones came through the portal and landed and scattered. One landed near syl and then was thrwon behind her as she stomped and crushed her enemies. Another landed near shepherd. The last two near roxi who was right in front of Rift at this point. As syl smashed a larger foe into the ground , the stone that skidded behind her, split. The marble sized object cracked open, and in a split second, a massive figure appeared......It rose , kept rising, towering 15 feet tall. Its body was that of a large stag beetle, and had massive mandibles. It walked on three odd shaped legs, thick and muscular, and peered around with its 7 different shaped eyes. It roared and before she knew it , syl was knocked across the street and slammed into the car parked by the curb. her tnak from saved her, pretty much destroyed the car, but she was stunned none the less.\
The stone by shepherd, split and cracked as well. And a giant crab appeared, it looked like a crab, but had 9 eye stalks, and two small claws on its left, with one massive one on the right.
The last two stones cracked and the area filled with smoke and ash. As the figure rose from the scene, it appeared scaley, and tall, and big, and tall, and taller , and taller still. the thick choking embers filled the air and burned the eyes. when anyone could finally see....The daemonic dragon stood looking down at Rift with its massive two heads. IT bellowed its battle cry............
Unit two standing near the slain demon-orc things would suddenly realize, the stag beetle that just knocked syl across the street was charging him through the ash cloud..
Chain shortened behind her, pulling Rythiel back towards the lamp post. Chain shortened in front of her, pulling two imps and Syndra towards the portal. And Rhythiel put every muscle she could into heaving her catch through the portal before she could think of a way to cut the chain. Asphalt buckled as hooves dug into it for traction, and a blast of air went out as her wings beat to add their lift to the pull...
The wolfman faltered slightly as the numbers increased. Each foe felled was replaced by two more. Even wide slashing flurries couldn't drop them fast enough. His wounds healed quick, but his wounds were the least of his worries. The creatures kept coming, swarming, gaining...
He looked to the sky and felt the moon shining down on him. The power and curse she granted surged within him and he let out a fearsome and terrible howl as it sent him into a bloodlust. The more orange than yellow eyes had gone completely red. Another vicious flurry and a group of the beasts around him fell.
Then, the beasts rose up. Hungry for blood and drawn to the fear, he made a savage leap at the dragon and attempted to slash through the tough scales.
"Crap... argo!" He lifted his guns again and fired at the beetle as he tried to activate the mod jets. The computer voice broadcasted "Function unavailable due to improper connections. Connect mod unit to Unit One for full function." He jumped to the left as the beetle charged ramming into the delivery unit causing it to explode. "Armor Piercing rounds!" The computer voice "Armor Piercing." He then started shooting his gatling guns again this time with the AP rounds.
At the control room where Unit Two Pilot was sitting in the control system his head in a VR like helmet his fingers twitching as he controlled the Unit. Eric came hobbling in and looked at the display. Then he sat down at the support computer system and put on a headphone set with mic "Peter, I'm back and let see if I can get a scan of that bug and figure out it's weak spots... ugh how you operate this thing you got the key binds all scrambled." Both heard at the battle and at the control room. "Glad your back boss, and don't change my keys! There a method to my madness."
When Rythiel pulled, Then took flight, the woman screamed and began to struggle with the chain wrapped around her leg. The stones she threw had passed through the portal and were about to wreak havock, or so she hoped. The two drone like figures holding the chain actually smacked heads comically as Rythiels end pulled harder. They let go for a second and Syndra slid across the floor towards the swirling portal opening. Screaming again, she cursed the winged foes strength. Thats when the blade fell. A massive sword dropped and cut the chain free of her leg. The daemon knight stood 8 ft tall and then stepped through the portal to the heroes side. A few more beings followed it flanking each side and then in a flash the portal snapped shut.
"You......betrayer......." the knight glared at Rythiel. It was flanked with 4 other knightly clad figures that didnt stand quite so high. all carried various medival weapons, twisted and wicked looking. All wore some type of plate armor, but with open faces only to reveal skulled head with different colored glowing eyes."betrayer...betrayer" they echoed behind thier lord. All of them glaring at the winged foe holding the remnants of the chain. " You do not feel the hunger of the purge....." The great lord of the hell knights said in a powerful, ominous tone. Behind him the other knights echoed " purge" and "Hunger" afew times over. "You shall be the first to feed my blade....." the Hell knight lord unsheathed his greatsword. An eerie green glow engulfed the entire weapon.
The giant beetle creature charged Unit two while the hot rounds came in on it. They peirced shell, and tore flesh. Chunks of carapace flew from the wounds and a large hole started to appear in the charging beasts torso........by the time it reached unit 2, it was a lifeless mass of goo and shell and just fell foward onto the robot, spilling innards and fluids in its wake.
The giant crab thing thrust forward with its claws and tried to grab shepherd and tear at him or tear him apart . It scurried fast for its size and its eye stalks covered every angle of approach to it.
Roxi stumbled a bit , then sped out of the dragons path as it rose to form. Its two heads snapping and roaring and peering around . Somewhat shocked by the size of the creature, It was alot higher than the 3 story building next to it, and it was long, very long. She tried to gain its mind, but it was a futile attempt. These things werent mindless like the others.
Blue's ice spikes passed through the air where the portal was as the Hell knights came through. Missing his target, the woman on the other side, they smashed windows and impaled a car down the block. He stood and watched the knights and listened to thier message. "I dont think so " He replied to the Hellknight and flashed closer to stand near where Rythiel was hovering.
The wolfman clung to the dragons side, claws tearing at the armored scales , some finding flesh. One of the dragons heads turned and gnashed at the figure clawing at its flank. The other stared at Rift, then inhaled and wooooosh. A massive cone of dragon fire hurled its way toward the lizard.
Syl stood up with lilly's healing touch and took stock of what was happening . There was the dragon, a giant crab, Hellknights, the beetle that hit her, had been dispatched , but remaining were a few lesser imps flying about and just two more larger foes, troll looking things, besides the afforementioned foes.
LIl and Syl paused, trying to figure out thier best point of attack.
The dragon's gnashing got lucky when the wolfman slipped on a dodge, taking a full set of jaws right on his side. He yelped, and was promptly flung upward so the teeth could find a better bite. In the process, the wolfman twisted and brought his claws into the eyes and jugular of this particular head. The hemorrhage covered his fur and wounds in dragon goo as he fell further to the ground and lay wounded. As the pain and rage subsided, the fur began to recede and his human form remained.
Lilly witnessed the dragon's teeth finding thier mark on the woflman. She immediately took off and flew in like a dart as the fell , wounded. She sent healing energies to him, hoping she wasnt too late.
The dragon shreiked in pain ad the claws raked the neck and eye of one of the heads. It's mighty wings flapped and the head that was hit snapped back now , obviously injured. It followed the falling hero down and inhaled deeply.....
Syl saw this and charged at it, trying to lower shoulder , before the exhale of dragon fire, she slammed into the beast throwing it off balance and sending the fireball in a different direction then lilly and the wolfman. The head came up again, bleeding still, and with an eye clawed and gouged, Syl stood infront of the dragon, ready to pound. Roxicon also was closeby, she closed her eyes and tried to grab an enemeies mind and make it hers.....
Rhythiel flicked the chain, and it was whole again, and freed from the lamp post. She opened her mouth and let out a single note, high enough in pitch that most mortals would not even hear it. The werewolf likely would, and might not like it. The demon knights definitely would, and might think their prey to be calling for help.
Dropping back into a more normal register, Rhythiel spoke to the knights. "It was your masters who betrayed you, sending you here to die. You may kill me first, but you will not have time to kill anyone else. There is a Knight of Summer in this city, and will arrive shortly to deal with any of you who have not already fallen.
The chain lashed out at the lead demon knight, aimed to wrap around his blade and pull it from his grasp. At the same time, a call could be heard from across the bay in Aurora.
Anyone looking that way would see a streak like a rainbow, arcing over the bay...
The chain wrapped the blade and pulled. The grasp was secure. All the chain seemed to do was keep the sword from moving, but it remained in its owners clutch. A lesser knight charged in at Rythiel, the sinister mace it weilded gave off a flash of light, and a bolt of lightning sizzled through the air at Rythiel. Blue stopped it's charge with blasts of frigid air, that held it somewhat in place, then shot ice spikes towards, and more frigid air. Another knight drew back it's ancient dark bow and fired a volley of arrows extremely fast. One hit blue in the thigh as he was holding the first in place. He grunted but didnt release his hold on the first one that charged. the other two arrows had come at Rythiel as well.
"UGh... " Unit two pushed the corpse off himself and stood. Then seeing the lesser knight charging at Rythiel "Watch out!" He opened fired at the Mace wielding knight.
Rift sent Roxi an angry glare. One that warned her to stay out of his head. Her attempts to enhance the reptile's abilities would be met with temporary success, and then a purging of the effect. "Don't compromise my Pride." He warned aloud, images of ten different ways he could kill Roxi in a split second would flash into his surface thoughts before being refocused upon the appearing twin headed dragon demon thingy.
Rift Couldn't help but smile a genuine smile. A large creature wasn't always the best fight, but they were always fun. The first attack was a plume of fire. And the other focus of the dragon seemed to be a wolf. A wolf? Well then, that wouldn't last long: and it didn't. In a thunderous crack, rift tore a portal open and stepped out onto the dragon's un-wounded, fire-breathing head almost completely avoiding any heat that was ever meant to reach him. He firmly gripped one of the horns, and kneeled down to speak to the beast. "You will bend to me. Understand?" Rift stomped on the Dragon's Cranium with authority as he rose. There would be no wound. No real wound at least. a few small dots of blood would come through, but only a skin deep annoyance.
The striker's claws would then crackle with violet sparks, and in an instant, the Dragon's horns would be sliced from it's head. Two thin discs of horn would appear in the air, teleported off the creature to create a perfect cut along Rift's claw attack. The horns themselves would then fall tot he ground with heavy thuds. It would be nearly painless, but it was a symbolic maiming. If the Dragon was intelligent in any way, it would understand the insult.
Rhythiel flung her wings up and back to force her body down fast; one arrow passed just above her head, and other went through her left wing. The pain was enough to restrict her aerial mobility, so she went low instead. She lunged forward, shortening the chain to increase her speed, under the burst from Unit Two, with the tail of the chain wrapped around her left forearm prepared to block the mace if it came at her, or to strike at the mace-wielder's legs as she passed if he was distracted...
Shepherd saw the crab creature as it appeared out of the stone a the twins disappeared from his hands as he summoned 3 crosblades made of unstable explosive spiritual energy which he launched at the creature after dodging out of the way of the attack.
Roxi saw Rift's reaction to her aid and her telepathy. Then realized he in some way may have threatened her. She knew she could handle the issue ,but now there were more important things to be done. The dragon's horns fell at her feet with a mighty thud , and the beast swung it's head violently against it's rider. The other head came up and gnashed at Rift while he was riding the first. Claws came up as well, all trying to tear the thing from its head.
Lilly was over by blue and rythiel fast and sendi9ng healing auras out to help mend thier wounds.....Unit 2's rounds came whizzing past as she stayed crouched to avoid the friendlt fire. The rounds penetrated the armor of the knight blue had frozen in place and put massive fist sized holes in its armor....it wast until two of the rounds hit it in its face did the thing finally go lifeless. Its helmeted head litteraly exploded with the onslought of the massive AP rounds.
The giant crab thing missed Shepherd and was snapping its massive right claw while trying to pin him with the other two. The crossblades shepherd launched hit the creature and buried semi into its shell. They exploded and sent chunks of shell and innards falling to the ground. This seemed only to enrage the creature who intensified its attacks on the ghostwalker.
Karak , the lead deamon knight said " Betrayer, you shall feel the hunger of the purge when my blade tastes your flesh" with that , tried to pull rythiel in as the chain wrapped around his sword went taught again. The daemon knight with the bow switched targets and fired arrows now in vollies toward everyone else Blue, Roxi, Syl, Rift, Shepherd, all faced down at least two of the daemonic arrows . Another of the knights pulled its hideous looking axe from off its back and charged over to the dragon......
Rift had no grip any longer atop the head. the horn he had held a moment ago was on the asphalt below, and only his balance kept him up. When the dragon flailed it's head, the first good shake sent Rift off. He was sent towards a building's side, redirecting his body mid air to plant his feet against the wall. A clawed hand reached out to grip a window ledge to hold him in place. The dragon seemed frantic to get the reptile off it's head. It definitely didn't seem like it cared to have it's one face clawed up by the wolfman, or it's horns removed at least. Regardless, Rift was ready for another attack.
The mace-wielder was distracted, but hitting his kneecap seemed superfluous. Rhythiel settled for grabbing the mace as it dropped from lifeless hands. She smiled at the leader as he pulled her closer to him, and she shifted from shortening the chain to moving its length up to wrap around the blade. At the last moment she leaped up, swinging the mace around to strike at his sword-arm...
As the rainbow grew nearer, a humanoid figure could be seen at its leading end.
From a nearby rooftop a black and orange striped cat looked down at the demons and licked his chops...
the mace impacted with the armored forearm of Kalak. It dented and sent a sudden jolt through the arm. Kalak muttered, "you dare defy your very being itself?!".....Kalak struggled to swing the great sword, being bound by the chain. Instead he started to use the sword bound in chain as the anchor to swing Rythiel in an arc . His strength was immense....The last unnoccupied knight drew his two blades and slowly stalked the arc of the swing.
Blue seeing all this tried to step in, but was cutoff by a volley of arrows he had to avoid, and then the two large trol looking daemons. A thud behind blue, and a club came down. HE turned and fired ice bolt after bolt at its head and chest. narrowly avoiding the flailing weapons, and clawed arms from the two beasts. Roxi had control of the remaining few lesser imps and had them attacking the dragon . Both heads of the dragon were focused on Rift however as his attack threatened and insulted at the same time . A cone of flame followed by a snapping maw, and two raking claws all in time directed at this ever present foe . Rift would have to be devoured, the dragon assessed.
Syl seeing rift take the attention of the great dragon away from the group , turned to asses threats quickly. Shepherd was fighting the big crab , and keeping it occupied, blue was dealing with the trolls, Lilly was healing as usual, and Unit2 and Rythiel were engaging the knights. THe wolfman hadnt recovered as of yet. Syl seeing an oppurtunity at a moment, charged the bowman when it turned to fire another volley at blue. She put her massive shoulder down, and barreled into the armored knight like a wrecking ball. It flew a few yards and scattered its arrows and bow all over. Syl stomped the ground near it as it stood and drew a short sword and small buckler sheild .....it charged. Well she had its attention she thought as she braced for that nasty looking blade.
Unit two looked at the loudest Knight "News Flash this is the 21st century and we have much cooler weapons. INCOMING!" He braced himself as a micro missile launcher lifted up from his back and fired a projectile about a foot long at the knights head. Think the Tank Buster Missile from Ironman.
In the control room Eric blinked "Careful! You got friendlies there" "Can't help it running low on AR rounds. Had to do something and these Demon Knights are tougher than that bug was!"
The wolfman finally recovered from his exhaustion. The now mostly human form lifted himself up and looked around at the battlefield. Just about everything had lost interest in him, and there in front lay two horns at the foot of the dragon's chest. Racing, he dove forward and picked up a horn and attempted to impale the dragon right in the chest. As he did so, his yellow eyes glowed and the hair on his body began transforming back into a wolf.
Syl had heard the incoming and side stepped as the missle flew past her and into the charging Knight that once had the bow, As it impacted she immediately put herself between it and the fight between Rythiel and KalaK. The blast hit her, but didnt do any permant damage, the daemon knight wasnt so lucky. The missle impacted right below its helmet and then in explosion shatterd skull and bone, and sent metal flying off in all directions. When syl recovered, she a few shrapnel wounds, and light burns. She looked at Unit 2 and before she could get off a scolding remark, a creature appeared behind the robot. It was the vampyr, the last thing of the original portal creatures that never had been found, IT sat waiting for an oppurtunity to strike. As unit two fired off and turned its back, it appeared behind it and attempted to grab hold of the robots head and twist. "Look out!" is all syl could yell, hopefully in time.
The wolfman plunged the horn into the chest of the dragon and felt the hardened scales give way to softer flesh......The dragon was in full fury now, using its tail to swat and try to impale the wolfman.
Rhythiel smiled. At the proper point in her arc, she flung the mace at the archer, adding her strength to Kalak's. And then when the twin-blade demon was in the right spot, the chain was no longer around the sword, it was ready in Rhythiel's hand. And Rhythiel was flying, hooves first, away from Unit Two's Ground Zero and at the twin-blade demon...
Toni, clad in a loose white blouse, tights, and a scarf, landed next to Setzer. The cat started miaowing, and the human nodded occasionally and looked around for live plants.
The creature managed to pin him but one of his arms was loose as Shepherd's hand began to crackle with the fires of the ether and lightning. The Ghostwalker then shoved his hand into the creatures wound.
As the crab thing kept the ghost walker pinned , it tried to crush him with its mighty strength. That's when shepherds hand found its way into the carapace. The energy from his hand surged and crackled with lightning and heat. The giant crab litterally cooked inside out. Its grip weakened . And eventually shepherd was dropped as the huge creature just collapsed to the ground.
The twin bladed knight attempted to dodge the lunging Lillum. It failed. Rythiels hooves came down clean on its chest andknocked it back. As its armor skidded across the stone street it used its only remaining blade to stop its momentum. It stood and leveled the blade and charged.
The knight that had charged the area with the dragon saw rythiel leave combat with Kalak and turned as well.
Kalak having been missed by the missile , only to see the archer get hit and summarily destroyed swing his now free great sword in an arc and nearly hit Blue as he was dodging a troll fist. "Betrayer.... Why do you flee from me? " he taunted the Lillum . That's when he was bowled over by the charging kheldian tank. Syl caught Kalak so obsessed with destroying rythiel he was only focused one way. Kalak flew forward toward where rythiel was about to deal with the now single bladed knight. The knight with the battle axe then turned and charged syl.
Unit two wasn't fast enough and the Vampyr got on his back "Hey no joy rides." He tried to get the thing off shooting a round at the Vampyr's face as it rips off his own head. The body of Unit two stood there like a headless statue.
At the control room "Crap!"
Suddenly,a emerald glow being cast from a streetlight's shadow, near the fray as the asphalt there begins to ripples slightly, before a feminine figure rises from the concrete. Stepping forward onto solid ground, her form solidifies, and her features can be more accurately defined. Her profile is lithe yet fit, developed but not as much as a full adult's clearly a teenager.
Her skin is the color of milky caramel, complimented by the attire of a simple brown lace blouse, jean capris, and black yet fashionable 'gladiator sandals'. If not for her supernatural entrance and piercing now blowing verdant eyes, she could have passed for a glamorous if not spoiled teen. Sweeping her curly and shoulder length black waves of hair back, she sets her sight on charging knight targeting Syl.
Taking in his strength and stature, and the clear battle that was raging around her, she decides to aid by raising her left arm swiftly, edges of green power ticking around her fingertips before she shouts, her voice carrying the earpleasing soft lilt of a French creole accent.
"That's enough, chevalier! How about you tangle with a sorciere instead!" Hoping to draw his attention away from Syl with a taunt, she begins her assault by outstretching her aforementioned palm, and calling upon blazing emerald ethereal chains to wrap around, lift, and detain the man in their grasp with a shout.
The wolfman kept jabbing the horn and digging it around to eviscerate what organs it could reach, hoping to puncture a lung or heart in the process. He dodged one hit from the dragon's tail, but took another full force and flew back a few feet. Recovering, he attempted to grab the tail and swipe the dagger-like tip. His mind knew there were other problems now, and the sooner this one was resolved, the sooner he could unleash a blood frenzy upon the next target.
"AROOOO!" He howled, building up his rage.
The knight dodged the first chain as it came in but did not dodge the second attempt sweeping back. It hung there entangled glaring with peircing yellow eyes and tried to manouver out of the hold . Syl saw the oppurtunity and slammed the figure having being held so neatly for her. her large fist pounded the knight into the ground as it remained held fast by the chains.
The Vampyr held the robotic head in its hands , then dropped it to the ground, in a flash it was in front of the newcomer , fangs and claws raking and gnashing, trying to secure a grip to sink its teeth into .
Shepherd sensed the new comer and noticed her abilities were very much like his from reading her aura. Those that had abilities over spiritual energy shined like a beacon to him since they usual held more spiritual energy with in them than others much like ghosts who were made of pure spiritual energy. He could tell she was inexperienced and she would need as much power as she could use in this fight. The Ghostwalker began to release and transfer some of his own spiritual energy so she could draw from if she needed using him as a conduit. He didn't know if she'd be able to see the same energies coming from him but if she could, she would be able to see is tie directly linking to the ether, the source of of all spiritual energies used to create the souls of men.
A new portal opened up, this one was more of a dark circle of shadows. It was also set overhead so a figure came falling down out of it dressed in blue jeans, a white shirt, work boots, and a sleeveless trench coat. "Hey Spook you didn't say you were having a Party! Can I crash it?" He landed near where the Vampyr was and roundhouse kicked the vamp in the back. Of course it was Rotten Luck.
Unit Two just stood there and at the command center Eric face palmed "I just finished building that!" "Sorry that thing caught me on my blind side... besides at least it's just two pieces Unit One was scattered all over." "Norman That wasn't my ... nevermind I activate the retrieval system." Unit two went over and picked up it's head and then took off flying following the homing signal back to command.
Shepherd looked at his friend Ron and smirked.
"There is plenty for everyone Bones."
Shepherd continued to release what ever energy he could.
Rift's escape from the inevitable assault from the twin-headded dragon was pre-planned. He swung his body up through the window he clung to, smashing through the glass. Flames spewed against the building's side, and seared his back with waves of heat as they poured through the opening. Glass melted, and the walls caught aflame. A dragon head dove through the window after him with the strength to rip through the building. The Reptilian lunged away from the snapping jaws, trading places with an office chair in his body's stead. The dragon's teeth would crush the furniture to ribbons, and when the jaw pulled back, clawed arms would tear the building's wall completely open for another assault. Flaming debris would fall to the ground, littering the battlefield with atmospheric rubble.
After the combination assault was finished, Rift would be standing there, just out reach of the initial strike's sweeping assault. All in front of him, cubicles and cheap desks were broken and thrown about. Just behind him were furnishings still in-tact. The reptile's face was one of mockery. He took some surface-injuries from the flames, but his body was resilient enough to continue. He turned his neck sharply sideways, letting his neck pop, then walked towards the opening in the wall with a grin.
Closing her eyes as she soaks in the energy provided by Shepard, she nods in appreciation as she in turn reverberates energy back to him as a sign of thanks, but also to tighten the link as she stares down the Vampyr in front of her, every particle of her body glowing emerald as she delves into intangibility, intending for him to go through her thanks to Rotten's swift kick, before trying a new tactic.
Now able to further tactically scan the battlefield with relative safety thanks to her current state, the young witch opts to turn back to the Vampyr, before suddenly diving into him in a twisting wisp of green energy, before reforming to her semi solid form once through him. If all goes as intended, her action should act like a agonizing 'lance' through his aura and soul, weakening him hopefully.
With that done, she takes a moment to nod to Rotten in thanks before raising her left arm once more, as a rift of emerald energy forms in front of her, attempting to summon a plethora of the spirits of the lives that the creature has taken to bombard and shatter his essence and physical body. It is also clear that she cannot keep this up for long, and will need support and cover for this to work, as she calls out to the Wolfman and Rotten.
"Can you keep him distracted, mon amis?!"
Rhythiel turned back towards Kalak, one end of the chain wrapped around each forearm. "You threw me at him, don't blame me." Stretching her newly healed wings, she flew at him, extending both ends of the chain to flail at him.
Toni's eyebrows rose. "I know that girl..." Stepping off the roof onto a piece of rainbow, Toni flew out over the fight. Answering the witch's request in passable second-year French, "Mais bien sur, ma'mselle!" A shaft of sunlight stabbed down and rose bushes reached up to grab the vampyr...
Rosella blinks as she immediately understands the boy's request, trying to determine where she heard his voice before a proverbial lightbulb arcs over her head as she realizes they were in the same Advanced Theatre class...and that they constantly fought for lead roles.
"Toni?!" She exclaims whilst continuing the spell, adding as she receives more energy, managing to speak without strain. "Bounjour, and it looks like we both have some explaining to do..should we survive all this mon ami. But for now, uhm...your French is excellent by the way!" She compliments whilst attempting to damn a Vampyr to the spirit plane.
The wolfman was rebuffed again as the dragon's tail swung wildly and knocked him off near Rotten. As Rosella called for aid against the vampyr, the wolfman charged on all fours before a savage leap flew him the rest of the way before he bit voraciously at the neck and tendons of the other nocturnal beast.
Seeing the wolfman come to a sliding halt at his feet only to get up and savagely pounce the Vampyr Rotten shrugged "Seems that one taken care of..." Looking around he spotted Rift "Hey Rift you got that dragon covered? Seems your out numbered one head vs two." Ron smiled he was in his element and didn't expect Rift to ask for help in any way. There was just too much Pride in that lizard. He charged for one of the Troll things leaping up to deliver a flying uppercut to it's jaw.
The dragon was injuerd, it was furious that these lesse beings dare attempt to defeat it, it's target was staring it down from the hole in the building. flames hadnt worked, its massive claws hadnt worked, and it had been humiliated with peices hacked form it like an insect. " You shall feel my wrath " It said as it stared down the scaled opponent. It siad but two other words...."Halki devensi"....and it began to shake and shutter.......the whole area started to quake......the building shook and started to crumble....Its scales seems to glow....then it inhaled, and fired a massive cone of blueand white fire light that seemed to burn the stone itself. The brick disintegrated. the building itself started turning to ash and dust....
The knight Syl just pounded started to rise from the ground when a massive foot came down and crushed its skull.....there was a sound of metal twisting and crushing followed by the pop of bone being splintered......"Another down" Syl thought..then she felt the ground rumble..
Blue had dodged the last troll punch only to have the creatures face be met by rottens fist.....it staggered back and nearly fel over...the second troll came in at blue only to have it met by a slew of ice darts..... they punctured flesh and staggered it , injured the two trolls stood and faced thier foes. "Welcome to the party my friend" Blue said to ron as they stood side by side. "Oh and did you finish that ziti i left in my fridge?".......
The wolfmans lunge was caught before he got to the vampyr. The battle axe weilding Knight was coming in and knocked him in the side . trying to throw him off balance so he could bring his wicked axe down on the feral wolfman.
The vampyr tried to gnash and rake rosella with her claws.....he moved incredibly fast......or so he thought. It would look like to the others he was moving in slow motion. He barely moved at all now........Roxi had him. Her kinetic energy was keeping this lethal foe from using his most impessive blink speed ability. It stood there almost unsure and shocked. "Finish the damn thing off " She yelled as she held it tight......then the gorund shook....
The few minor imps came diving in at roxi only to have Lil fight them off with her minor attacks...she hovered behind roxi's back keeping the 3 little flyers off with stings from her energy attacks.
Kalak was hit with one end of the chain Rythiel used as a weapon. It smashed his helemet, and nearly caught the edge. One of rythiels hooves clipped his upper chest as well, spinning the Deamon Knight slightly. As Rythiel came in he attempted to bring down his sword in an exchanging of blows.
"Naw the days of entering someone's elses home without their knowing are over. So the Ziti wasn't taken by me." He smiled and delivered a right jab to the trolls gut followed by a knee between the legs. "These guys smell off. Worst than limburger cheese."
Rosella growls as she witnesses the Wolfman being attacked by the Knight, and without warning halts her summoning spell, drawing back the emerald energy expanded before forming it into a javelin within her outstretched palm. Calming herself and taking aim before launching it at the axe-wielder's chest, hoping to spear his heart or whatever remains there to end the assualt or at least give the werewolf a reprieve.
Once that is done, she shouts to Shepard and Toni as she resumes her spell, once again attempting to bombard the Vampyr fatally with the souls he's slain like missiles.
"Now mon amis, don't let up!"
As blue fired more spikes into the troll creature in front of him, he stoped as it staggered back....and then sped foward and froze the beast solid.....Knowing rotten hits hard he called out " Shatter the damn thing Ron".........ron had just knoced the other one back as blue approached it to do the same thing.
The javelin streaked and hit the knight under the arm as it had the axe raised to bring down on the wolfman. It peirced armor and sunk deep into the chestplate of the being. The knight nearly dropped its axe as it staggered back. it was injured severly.
The vampyr being held in roxis kinetic grasp had no choice but to try and withstand the barrage snet its direction. the souls summoned hit it like spears as each would pass through and drain more life from the captive creature.......it weekend with the onslaught till it finally wnet limp . Thats when roxi slammed it into the ground and squashed it like a bug. Lilly was doing her best at keeping the small little imps at bay when roxi turned and grabbed two of them and smashed them together in air. thier crumpled forms fell from the sky and hit the ground with a thud.
Toni kept kept the sunlight on the slowed vampyr until Roxi finished it off, then sent the roses after other foes..
Rhythiel blocked the blade with her chain-wrapped left forearm. Links shattered, robbing the blow of much of its force. But not enough. The blade bit deep into her arm.
Rhythiel gathered her magic, not to block the promised "hungering", but to twist it, and change it from a curse to a gift...
Seeing as the Vampyr was finished off by Roxi, Rosella gathered herself and her power before launching another javelin at the knight to further wound it or kill it successfully, as she shouts while eyeing the Imps, pointing towards Lilly as she continues to assault the knight with javelin after javelin.
"She needs help against those Imps, my dancecard is full!"
The javelins came in and hit the Knight over and over. It blocked a few with its great axe, but the vollies never slowed. Then one of the javelins found its mark in the skull. It peirced the eye socket and took the knight back and sent its shattering and clunking to the ground. It lay motionless.
Kalak readied his sword for another clash with Rythiel , his blade fed somewhat already and thursted for more of the same..."You will serve me Lillum, You will feel the hunger of the purge set forth this day."
The wolfman tumbled hard into the ground and looked up to see the axe trained at his head. He thought of death and fear with the moon looking back at him. A renewed blood frenzy took hold when he saw the spear impale the blood knight. Just as the knight staggered back, the wolfman lunged, jumping onto the demon's shoulders and attempting to knock him down further. His claws met their mark and attempted to tear the helmet away from the knight as the wolfman shifted his weight to further unbalance them both.
Ron went and mimicked Sub Zero as he uppercut the frozen Troll. The force shattered the beasts neck sending the head flying. "Good thing these things seem to not trigger my cravings." Followed by a spin kick to the second one as Blue gave it the cold treatment.
