[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 03:53AM
Deep within the nightmare lay the remnants of a monumental clash of wills – a testament to the bond between the queen, her faithful maid, and their tutelary. That testament was strewn across the island – part of the body of the great serpent, Jormungandr, who had been slain by a band of heroes summoned by Magicia to help her wrench that final ingredient from the stubborn jaws of the monster. A titanic battle had tested the heroes’ resolve and nearly destroyed the island altogether, but at last, the World Serpent had been put paid to and the ingredient wrested from his forked tongue: the admission that Helvegen was indeed his son. And as the serpent had fallen, Helvegen had risen, with his father’s bones remaining to litter the island as a reminder of that epic clash.
 
And now, they would be reminded once more, far more vividly than they could ever have wished.

The uncontrolled emotions that powered the nightmare and raged across the land now converged and coalesced here, in this place. The dream reached out to envelop the colossal bones and bone shards that constituted the serpent’s remains. A clattering shiver passed through the entire thing, gargantuan ribs rattling as this divine monster was given new, unnatural life by the power of the nightmare. There, hanging in the air, was Helvegen, his arms crossed over his chest and black robes flying in the wind, as the World Serpent reared back its head and roared its hellish oath of world-consuming hatred to the artificial sky. It then brought its impossibly huge head low again, to peer at the man who floated so brazenly before it. Hollow eyes darkening in recognition.
 
“Helvegen.”
 
The man smiled coldly, his blue eyes alive with rage, resentment and bitterness.
 
“Hi, Dad.”

-It seems the barrier around the island can hold the serpent in, the mental energy of Paroxysm awakening those bones and holding them in place. But nightmares have already made it past the barrier. What will happen if this one breaks free as well? Magicia’s laughter resonates throughout the island at the realization of what she’s caused.- “Well well… after all the trouble I went through to get you to loosen that jaw of yours, you’re back for more? Ah. How cute. But I think this time I will let your son play for a while.”
 
-The map that is held by Randall Wayne glows with a new dot, marking the northwest cliffs and its magic waterfall that cascades into the sea, directing him and heroes to the next conduit of strong mental energy. The Serpent himself.-

“Seems god gave me a sign,” the man spoke before shaking his head. “Well, Queen But….: Ah who gives a shit….: just ramblin’ to myself anyway…. unless you wanna converse?” He pointed to a bobbing drowner nearby. “……. okay you might actually be dead, but that’s beside the point!” Rising to his feet and grabbing his gear, the Wanderer known as Randall prepared for the trip northwest. Hopefully disrupting another place of power.

-Portals tear open across Hellifyno, enticing heroes to enter the nightmare realm. As they come through, their bodies are deposited outside on the beach beyond the barrier, while their souls carry on through to the western cliff waterfall.-
 
-The water churns in a sickly dark ooze, and body parts can be seen floating in it. Once in a while, a maid fishes out a leg or ear from the pool before it can be carried into the ocean below and devours it within seconds.-
 
The ghostly moonlight is blotted out by a giant serpentine cranium looming above you in the seas that remain within the barrier.-
 
-Jormungandr has reanimated.-
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 07:55PM
And into this nightmarish hell of death and vicious carnage, one such Hero would emerge to oppose this congregation of Evil. Well, not really that he emerged but, one moment he wasn’t there? Next moment, he was! He had appeared; eyes closed and face to the sky as he had spawned into this Reality. The Multiverse shaking that the reanimation of a World Eater had created summoned the attention of many Realities, and one of which? Sent their best Man. Came he then to open his eyes, and take a hard breath of the rancid air; Medical Captain Kanuckel of the L.A.F was sent in to stop these fiends from doing their vile deeds. The destruction of One World can often lead to the crumbling of many, and through dimension he had came. He was an average looking Man, five foot eleven with a round head and short, dark hair. He wore a blue shirt, with a kevlar vest and backpack with a red cross stitched into it, and two bands with the same symbol on his arm; Healer. A few ammunition belts wrapped around his abdomen as he put his thumbs into them and looked out at the world of Paracosm.. “Bleh.” Was his only comment, before producing his service pistol from his pocket, the P30L 9mm handgun.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:00PM
Ready to face the fears that got the best of them the first night, a woman with blue hair peers through a portal at towards the now familiar beach. Two blades are strung by her sides as well as a pair of pistols snugly tucked into a shoulder holster. “Ready or not…” and with that she steps through the portal, her body lying on the beach as the two half souls of Hasira and Jemini get carried to a waterfall. Hasira looked to her blue haired counter part and smirked. “Ready to see dear ol’ dad again?” Jemini sighed. “Ready to over come it this time, yes.” Jemini looked around hoping that they weren’t the only two crazy enough to show up.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm

Seems the man was rather early to the sadistic party. His silver bastard sword stuck into the ground so he can prop an elbow upon it. Looking over his map of Paracosm, or Paroxysm as the hellscape goes by. Picking off some piece of gunk beside the main keep. “Gross….” he muttered flicking his fingers clean as he watched over the waterfall. Keeping an eye on how it cascaded for any form of anomaly besides it being magic. And then the giant snake head. That wasn’t there before…. or was it? Who knew. Maybe this place was taking a toll on his already degrading mental state. Whatever it was, he simply checked the black submariner watch on his wrist. Trailing a finger cover the crack in the lens. “Now if I know Hellifyno…… there should be *Atleast* four people on their way…..” he said to himself. Watching the maid fetch limbs in the water and having it a wave.
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:03PM
Zara made her way to Paracosm. Why not? She’d only been back on Hellifyno a /day/ and already things were back to hell, huh? She had her flintlocks, her saber, and her clawed gauntlets. It was the best she could hope for, along with her vials of potions. Health, stamina, boosts for her fire, etc. She popped out of her own portal, stretching as she landed on the beach. Zaire had warned her that this place wasn’t for the faint of heart. But, what did this Yuki have to fear that she hadn’t faced before? Hm. That was a good question, really.

“One.” The shadows churn and roil, sensing the arrival of the Captain. “And another…” Randall is accounted for as well. “And two thirds…” Hasira and Jemini. “And a fourth.” The nightmare quivers, shifting beneath your feet, hissing like a living mass. HE watches. They all watch.
 
Atop a mountain of bones sits the Angel of Paroxysm, bone scythe in hand, black robes trailing down his body to pool around him and meld with the dark. They come, all of them, to trample the queen’s dream, the dream he shares. He exhales and sinks into the dark, traveling though the nightmare as a spider would its web. He will give them a proper welcome. A proper Paroxysm welcome…
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:07PM
The Medic looked over to his sides and his back, where the four others were along the reaches of the beach. Where then the earth began to shift and churn under his feet like angry mud, and he looked down at his boots and lifted one foot. “What the hey?” If it weren’t then too much for them, he’d walk over to the other four members and greet them. “Yo. My name’s Captain Christopher Kanuckel, Medical Captain of the L.A.F. I have been sent here from my reality to assist yours, or I at least assume this is yours. My orders are to exterminate the World Eater that has been brought back into your Reality, and then return to my own.” He greeted each one, offering a remarkable smile and a wave, nodding to Randall and Zara and everyone who was present. “Hello, Hello. Nice to meet ya, blah blah. What’s the deal, yo? What’s with this fuckin’ mud here, it always do this or what?” Unaware of the rapid approach of Helvegen, since they were at his back.
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:10PM
“Fuck if I know,” Zara muttered. “Never been here before. Fun, huh? Name’s Zara Huon, I’m an alchemist, blah blah blah.” She didn’t care for formalities. Just wanted to get the job done.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 08:13PM
-Laughter resonates through the air. She is watching you. She wants to see what happens now.-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:13PM
The earth beneath you shifts. A shadow falls across the ground, though there is nothing overhead. It curves to encompass all of you. It is almost palpably thick and heavy, like molasses around your feet.
 
“Hey.” There’s a voice, but not from these shadows. He’s leaning against a tree – the dark-haired boy in the spiderweb cloak. He smiles jovially at all of you. “Welcome to Paracosm. How can I help you?”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:17PM
Jemini looks around and spots Zara again and is about to call out to her when she is interrupted by Hasira. “FUCK! These were my favourite boots!” JJ’s head snaps around to look at Helvegen. “I remember you from the costume contest. I was never able to catch your name though.” Unlike Hasira who was preoccupied by her ruined shoes, JJ managed to keep her tone in check. Getting angry would not help the situation.
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:18PM
Zara frowned at the….stuff….surrounding her legs. “Oh, are you fucking kidding me?” She groaned. “I just got these damned boots today!” Of course one hand rested on a pistol. She wasn’t taking chances. Her eyes never left the dark haired one standing nearby. “I swear to Zenith, I get out of this shit, and /you/ owe me a new pair of boots!” Zara, of course, kept her tail lifted so as to /not/ get the weird substance all over it.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:19PM
“Oh, you didn’t catch me in these clothes, though.” He grins cheerfully and waves to JJ and Hasira. “M’name’s Helvegen. I live here. You don’t, though. What’re you doing here?” His eyes flicker to Zara, and though his smile remains, something dangerous sparks in his eyes. “Don’t owe you shit. There aren’t -my- shadows. Island’s got a mind of its own.” And then, he looks at Randall, and his grin widens. He says nothing to the man, just… stares, and waits for their answers.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:22PM
Capn looked down at his feet in disgust as he kicked a bit of the sticky stuff away, only to have to plant his foot back in it to keep, ya know, standing. “EW bro! That’s nasty as hell, man!” But he did not care about the boots, or the pants. Simply striding through this sticky stuff towards the Man leaned against the tree and putting his pistol away. Why? Because now was not the time for fighting to him. Because this was a game of combat, /and/ trust. Greeting them with a well renowned smile as he passed his colleagues, he came to them with an outstretched hand and said, “Hello! You must be in some kind of command or knowledge of this place, I am Captain Kanuckel! Man donned in spider clothing, where might I find a World Devourer in this place?” Now it was obvious he knew what it was, but was simply trying to crack a laugh out of the character before him by turning around and looking at the great big snake skeleton, and turning back with a quizzical look on his face. Funny as hell, and even funnier was the way that he said, “Is it that thing, bro? Dog that thing is fucking HUGE, looks like my cousin.”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:22PM
He peered over to the voice and shrugged. “Meh, everyday ‘ere is a mindfuck. And my name is Randall… you must be one who wants to die or be trapped on this forsaken cause….” he opened his arms. “It’s all this place is fuckin’ good for!” He grinned a bit before tilting his head at the dog woman. Scratching at his rather overgrown beard. What? It’s bit like he gets to go back to his body to shave once in a while. “Zaire? You….. cut your hair?” He asked squinting before shifting his footing to feel around the thick substance about his feet. Then that WINDY FUCKER shot a glance his way. He couldn’t help but grin back and give a wave. “Hey, Helvey…. miss me? Oh and we’re ‘ere to kill yo pops. Probably…. maybe…. I doubt it….”
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:25PM
Zara blinked at Randall. “Uh. No. I’m /Zara/. Her sister.” She rolled her eyes, still miffed about the damned boots. They’d cost a /lot/ back in Tenrai. /And/ they were functional. Not just bad ass. She looked at Helvegen. “Fine,” she muttered. “I’ll be…./nice/.” That last word seemed almost impossible for her to get out. She looked over to Randall. “And you? I’ve got some fuckin’ words for you if I get out of here alive.”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:25PM
And just like that, the Unkindled had suddenly made his way there. In the thick of it. Quite literally, it seemed. What was this around their ankle? The Unkindled looked around, wearing his black leather armor, no cape, longsword tucked at his side. His dark hair was tied back in a tight bun. He looked around, then sighed under his breath, reaching up and scratching the bridge of his nose. “Certainly eventful…” He murmured under his breath, the dryness of his humor not going eluded.

10/10 08:26PM
“S’a big snake, yeah.” Helvegen looks over at his father, who is currently coiled up and motionless, looking for all the world like a gigantic mountain of bone. He gives the World Serpent a smile, before turning back to those present. “So, you wanna fight my dad? That’s all right, I guess. Follow me. I’ll take you to him.” The serpent is unbelievably massive, but he seems to be quite a ways away. Helvegen turns and gestures to the spooky, scary forest, at the edge of which you are all currently standing. “This is the quickest way. Coming?”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:26PM
Hasira crosses her arms in front of her chest with a harrumph. She looks over at Zara. At least THEY were on the same page. The blonde spoke up. “Hasira. Ms. Suzy Sunshine with the blue hair is Jemini. Now, the fuck we need to do to get outta this nightmarish hell hole?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:27PM
“I’m with you!” As the Captain redrew his pistol and held it by his side, stepping beside Helvegen and looking back to the others. Waving a hand and saying, “This way, folks! One way ticket to spookyville.”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:29PM
A brow was raised beofre his eyes widened. “O-Oh! Z-Zara…. s-Sorry…. my minds been a mess ever since I got stuck ‘ere….” he said before hearing her remark. “Yeah, you always seem to do….” he mumbled to the Yuki before shaking his head. “No you…. literally can’t leave alive….” he said before pulling his blade from the soil and following Helvegen. He didn’t really hate the guy. Didn’t like him either but….. meh, it’s sorta like…. minimal mutual respect?
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:30PM
The corner of the Unkindled’s lip twitched, his eyes scanning along the area. He did not know anybody. He saw Randall in passing at Red Sun, but that was about it. And that woman… why did she resemble Zaire so much? He blinked. Zara? Zaire had mentioned her. He turned his head back to Helvegen, brow raised, then to the Captain. He did not say anything. He merely looked ahead across the forest. Thinking to himself, then followed.
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:31PM
Fuck it. Why not? She clicked a small button on the gauntlets, claws extending from the knuckles. “Giant snake? Sounds fun.” She grinned, her canines lengthening into points. She rolled her eyes at Randall, following behind Helvegen. She looked at the taller one, the newcomer, and she kind of just….shrugged. She walked with them, falling into step beside him. The rest knew her name now, but he didn’t. “Name’s Zara,” she said. She flexed her hands a bit, rolling her shoulders. “You are?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:34PM
“You’re coming? Beautiful. Brilliant. Bananas. Bonkers. Brutal. Let’s go!” Helvegen cheers, flicking his grey cloak before traipsing along into the woods, whistling a spooky, scary tune to match the spooky scary woods. The shadows deepen as you enter, and the ambiance begins to shift. It’s pretty whimsical Halloween-ey stuff: jack-o-lanterns, fake spiders, sheets with eye-holes cut in them dangling from trees, skeletons and such..
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:35PM
The two woman start heading to where Helve and the Captain are now standing. The two look like they could be twins. The slightly taller of the two has blue hair and heterochromatic eyes that are constantly surveying the surroundings. The second woman, the blonde, would be just as tall as the blue haired woman if she didn’t slouch. Still miffed about her boots, Hasira follows her brown eyes scowling at the alliterative dark haired…whatever he was.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:36PM
Helvegen’s demeanor… casual, cheerful, erratic. It reminded him far too much of somebody else he had met. Those words that were spoken still were digging at him to some extent. He bit his lip, inhaled deeply, then slowly let it out. His hand rested over the pommel of his sword, eyes looking around carefully. His bicolored eyes not at all blinking, even if he should. His caution was high. Something did not feel right. That was saying a lot. He was in a foreign area, surrounded by people he did not truly know, following a man that he did not trust. Gods, it never ended, did it?
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:37PM
Before they would dare enter such a dark, and spooky place, he lifted his head to the sky for a second. Closing his eyes and focusing… and then suddenly boom! It appeared, a large metal sphere of dark metal with two, red spots on the top and the bottom if you were able to see the top of it. It was about the size of his abdomen, and just hovered in mid air and was completely static. He took his pistol and reached up, making sure that it was completely no-collided with everything. His hand and gun passed straight through! And satisfied with this, he ran back up and kept pace with the rest of the group. Holding his pistol by his face now in a position ready to fire at any moment, he progressed and looked at all of the silly little cosmetic Halloween props and chuckled. “What, did I miss a little kid’s October birthday party before I came out here?” Now he wasn’t sure if Zara was talking to him or not, because honestly he wasn’t even that tall. Just a dude, so he kept his mouth shut other than the snarky comment..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:38PM
Helvegen looked over his shoulder to stick his tongue out playfully at the Unkindled. When looking straight at him, the resemblance to The Other would be uncanny and unsettling… no, suffice to say that, besides their differing attire and the colour of their eyes, they looked EXACTLY the same. Completely identical, right down to their hair.
 
And then, he started whistling again. Only… a bit differently this time.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:40PM
The man smirked and grabbed a sheet from a branch. Giving it a once over before folding it, tucking it away into a pouch. “Oh, Lavy and Raoul will get a kick outta this…” he said to himself as he proceeded. Of course mostly with his eyes clothes. As usual he kept his ears out for the slightest ruffle of leaves, suspicious breeze, or footsteps that don’t belong. He glanced around occasionally, taking in the surroundings before looking back at Zara. “How’s Zaire? I haven’t really….. been off this rock to see ‘er…… and I’m guessin’ since your her sister you…. prolly met ‘er first when ya got ‘ere, right?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:40PM
Tears appear in the bedsheet ghosts. Their eyes flare as they are granted a facsimile of life, and something almost physical twitches beneath their sheets.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:40PM
The immediate realization did, in fact, cause the Unkindled to briefly halt. There was a brief urge; an urge to withdraw his sword and plunge it directly into the back of Helvegen. He refrained. He did not know if they were the exact same person or perhaps an extension. That was the biggest problem with the Other; he knew /little/ of him. What he was, /who/ he was, he was a mystery. He suppressed a frown, then quickly began to follow again.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:41PM
The spiders’ legs curl up and stretch.
 
The lit flames within the Jack-o-Lanterns sputter and die.
 
The skeletons’ bony fingers flex, closing around the hilts of rusty blades.
 
And the shadowy substance around your feet rises.
 
Slowly, but noticeably, it rises. Before, it was like walking on a wet floor. Now, it’s more like standing in a puddle.
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:42PM
Zara scoffed. “Oh? She’s still fuckin’ heartbroken. But, hey, what can I do, huh?” She rolled her eyes. “But, hey, I hear she’s been training with someone and she’s been pretty happy about all that.” She looked around. “Okay. This is all just fuckin’ weird. Seriously.” She didn’t like this place. Her ears twitched, and she glared at the shadows. “Are you….look, can I /not/ get groped by a shadow, please?” She was grumbling that under her breath.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:43PM
“D’you like the decorations? I helped make them.”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:44PM
The Unkindled overheard the conversation between Randall and Zara, the man training her. Neither of them knew. He would like to keep it that way. His eyes then flickered over to the ‘decorations’, his posture stiffening, shoulders squared. Just when he thought he could not get more cautious. In some sickened way, it almost reminded him of his realm. So long ago, yet fresh in his mind. He decided to be more prepared. Thus, he withdrew his sword, the icy mist slowly falling from the blade and to the ground.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:44PM
“Ah, shit…” The Captain said as the shadow rose and the props animated. Due to his loving nature of all Men, he reached his hand out to Helvegen to stop him by the shoulders. “Hold the phone, homie. Something’s going down. I got your six..” And in saying this, turned around and put his back to their’s with a space of about, two or so feet. Helvegen was the closest one to the Captain, and he figured it’d be safest to buddy up with people. Holding his pistol in both of his hands as he fiercely looked over his surroundings, prepared to deal with what ever hell he was about to go through..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:45PM
Helvegen’s hand snaps back with inhuman speed, closing around the Captain’s hand as he tries to grab him. There’s something not quite right about his smile.
 
“I asked, do you LIKE the decorations?”
 
The trees groan. From some of the branches comes… sobbing?
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:46PM
“Ah-!” He said as his hand was grabbed, and looking down at it and then back up to Helve’s eyes he said, “What? I mean, yea I guess so, come on buddy I need that.” Referring to the hand
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:47PM
The Unkindled’s attention immediately went to Helvegen. Dammit. Not now. Not here. He frowned, grip around the hilt of his blade tightening as he took a step closer to the two. “The decorations are fine, dammit. How is this relevant, exactly?” His brow raised, tone calm, but firm.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:47PM
“Oh for fucks sake, if a goddamn spider web chokes me out….. I’m bombin’ the damn island….” he said before taking out the ghost from his pouch, wrapping an arm around it with one arm before sheathing his blade and I holstering his Mateba, keeping the barrel to its supposed head. Is he…. holding it hostage? “Hey, Helvegen! What’s this…. oobleck shit?” He asked the god. Swishing his foot around briefly to see if the shadowy liquid was familiar. “And the decor is cute…. that good enough for ya? Nice n’ spooky….” he said swatting his hand away from Kanuckel if he could.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:47PM
“They are the dog’s fucking bollocks, Helve.” Hasira always had a peculiar way with words. “but..what is with the rising goo?” Jemini kept walking in silence. The snap in Helve’s demeanor was unsettling, as was everything else that was around here. What revelations would they come to after the night’s purpose? She wondered.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:47PM
“Brilliant. I’m so glad.” That smile is still fuckin’ wrong, somehow. He flashes Ash a glare that could only be describes as hate-filled before turning and walking on. The trees are definitely making.. noises. Human noises.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:48PM
With his hand released, he looks down at it and gives it a good shake. “Ouch.” And puts it back to his pistol, stepping back towards the rest of the group and saying, “I don’t like that guy.. something about that smile seems off.” Now he yelled, looking up at the trees and the decor and asking it, “
 
(fuck) And asking it, “Can someone please tell me what’s cookin’ with the trees? Who moaning? What’s wrong, mang?”
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:49PM
“Oh, yeah. The decorations are great. Real festive.” Zara was glad her last comment hadn’t been addressed by the one she directed it at. She’d have to have a “chat” with that one when this was over. She rolled her eyes again. And then she drew her saber, channeling her flames into it. The only magic she /could/ do. And it was a bit…unnerving. She looked at the trees. That did /not/ sit right with the Yuki. She wasn’t /afraid/ of it. But she didn’t /like/ it.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:49PM
The Unkindled’s eyes squinted in return, the corner of his lip twitching, suppressing a growing frown. The noises of the trees. Too much memories of a painted world for his liking. He sighed under his breath, reaching up with his free hand and running his gloved hand along his face. Still, for some reason, he followed. As to the question of to the trees, Ash merely shrugged. “Souls could be trapped within. Maybe they were cursed. I’m sure he knows.” He nodded to Helvegen.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:49PM
“It’s relevant because I say so.” He frowns and looks at Randall before answering thoughtfully. “Think of the stuff around your feet as… I dunno. Shadow syrup?” He shrugs, but then his eyes go to the Captain, who has addressed the tree.
 
“Oh, dear…”
 
The tree has been addressed. It shivers, creaks, and then, SCREAMS in agony.
 
The illusion breaks. Where before there was bark, now is flesh. Where were leaves, now dangle fingers. Roots of muscle and bone pulse within the earth.
 
The trees are people. Or rather, they are… made of people. People whose bodies have been bent, twisted and forced into unnatural positions.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:52PM
Jemini quickens her pace slightly before coming to a dead stop as the illusion breaks. “Dear sweet Lord.” Hasira’s jaw goes slack with a look of ‘da fuck am I seeing’ written across her face.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:52PM
And they are still. Alive.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 08:53PM
“The Fuck? The trees are Soylent Green!”
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:53PM
Zara let out a breath as the scream hit her ears. “Gods….What the /fuck/?” She glared at the one who was addressing the damned tree. “/Some/ of us have sensitive hearing, dumb ass!” She flattened her ears against her head, but it gave her no relief from the ringing in her ears. Ugh. She wasn’t even noticing that they were alive. She was just trying to get the ringing to stop.
 
Unkindled Ash

The Unkindled immediately froze at the scream, then turned his head to the tree, watching. He could not help but slightly grimace at the scene. He had seen a lot, but that did not mean he had grown /entirely/ numb to it. Gods, this reminded him far too much of his realm. It was still moving? Still alive? He took a step back, the grimace fading, lips straight, hiding his clenched teeth behind closed lips. “Darkmoon curse this bloody place…” He growled.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:54PM
“Agh, Sick!” He cried, looking away for a second and stepping back. He had seen such gruesome mutation to people, but not to this extend. The Zombies from his Reality are similar, mutated and altered into weapons by little parasites they may just encounter in the World of Nightmare. He watched as the tree pulsed and moaned in utter agony and shook his head, wishing that he could do something for these people. And did just that.

“Shadow syrup? Is it….. good on toast?” Was he serious? Who knew. But that scream caused him to take the revolver to the ghost and point it at the…. flesh tree? “Jesus fuck!” He said before looking to the bedsheet ghost he had and tossed it in front of him. Grabbing a stick to poke it a few times. Was that tree the only illusion? He turned to the other decorations as well. He knew it couldn’t be the ‘fun’ kind of spooky. It *never* is.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:54PM
“I worked extra hard on those,” Helve says casually, waving at the tree as if it isn’t shrieking in agony. All around, the illusions begin to fall, as more and more of these hideous living-corpse trees are revealed. “Thought it would be a nice touch. Now, come along! I know you might want to admire them longer, but if we don’t reach dear old Dad before long, I might just get bored and turn -you- all into decorations.” He smiles winningly back at them, like it’s a joke. It definitely isn’t.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 08:55PM
Reaching into his back pocket, he pulled out a grenade and pulled the pin. Setting it down at the tree’s base while the lever flew off and wished them peace as he ran away from the imbound explosion. “FIRE IN THE HOLE!”

*William appeared next to a beach, looking around, he saw the weird barrier, he walked in only to see his body stop at the barrier and then fall to the ground, turning to ash.* Hmm… weird… * He looked around, not knowing where anyone was, IF there was anyone else.*

Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 08:56PM
Bicolored eyes immediately shifted over to Helvegen. Everything burned within him to run forward and plunge his sword into the back once more. He knew it would not turn out well. He could not risk putting the others in danger, even if a fight was already destined to happen. But this was their guide, as much as it pained him to admit. If he attacked Helvegen, it would compromise everyone else. Although, there was one person he would not mind to be in that situation. He did not look at them, he just looked ahead, silent, sneering, then followed.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 08:57PM
“God FUCKIN’ damn it,” Helvegen curses, running a hand through his hair. “And I worked so hard. Now you dipshits are ruining my art.” He growls and stares at the Captain. “Didn’t they tell you not to touch the art in museums? Be courteous. Now, come along.” He reaches to the side, and his arm extends away into the nightmare, reaching through time and space. It closes around William and dragged him back, to stand beside the dark-haired boy. “Heya. Welcome to Paracosm. Join the fun; there’s plenty to go around.” Almost before he’s done talking, he starts walking again. “Come along! Don’t tarry, children!”
 
Zara
 
10/10 08:58PM
Zara finally got rid of the ringing in her ears, shaking her head. “Sonuvabitch,” she muttered. She still followed, beginning to question why she came in the first place. Oh, right. She wanted to /hunt/ something. She’d been feeling a little restless as of late. She muttered under her breath, “not like /I/ had anything to do with that fuckin’ explosion. Mine are better.”

10/10 08:59PM
*he blinked and looked around, he didn’t trust this one bit, but he followed anyway, scanning the area every so often, keeping track of where they were going, and any and all exits to places he might be brought into*
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:00PM
A huge flash of yellow light and extreme force with bits of shrapnel bursts forth from the base of the tree, letting those people’s torment come to a sudden end as bits of them flew in the opposite direction. Came then the Captain to only give a stare to Helve, and then focus again as another HE Grenade appeared in his hand and he put it away. Power of the Player, baby; he called it forth from his Loadout to replace the one that he had lost. Pulling the Pistol back out again and only shaking his head as he walked with the shadow puddle around his ankles. Keeping a close eye on Helve, and the Halloween stuff among them while also keeping tabs on his group. Anyone hurt? No? Good. “Yo, if anybody needs me, just cry out ‘Medic!’ and I’ll answer you…”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:00PM
“Fire in the Wha-” oh. That’s a fragmentation grenade….. OH! Of course he ducked his head behind a flesh tree to make sure he didn’t catch shrapnel as it went off. “Charlie you fuck!” He growled at the Captain. “Take it fuckin’ easy….” he grumbled before continuing to follow his sadistic guide. Peering up towards any source of the laughter? Nonetheless he gave the air a wave. “Heya, Ms. Paracosm…. Or is it Paroxysm now?” He seemingly asked nobody. Yeah…. maybe he’s been here a wee bit too long.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:01PM
“Got it,” He replied to Randall with a nod and a smile. Always there to listen, and to assist!
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:02PM
Irritation was becoming more and more prominent with the Unkindled. The explosion made him twitch slightly, then glare over at the Captain as he followed. He inhaled deeply, let it out through his nose. He opened his mouth, about to tell the Captain to just shut his mouth and focus. But something stopped him. The Other’s words. ‘Who the fuck are you to tell somebody that?’. His lips closed, remaining silent. Just focus, dammit. That was all he had to do.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:02PM
“Paracosm, Paroxysm. Tomato, Tomahto.” Helvegen waves dismissively at Randall, before stopping suddenly. “Oh…!”

-Maids suddenly scurry out from between the trees to collect the body parts that were scattered. Shame, they were at least alive before. Captain has killed them. Captain has doomed them to being devoured. As quickly as the maids arrived, they vanish again into the shadows.-
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:03PM
Zara sheathed the saber. She also released the claws. Instead, she switched the gauntlets to their brass knuckle mode. And she had half a mind to punch someone. She looked up at Ash. Okay. Make that /three/ people she didn’t absolutely hate in this merry band of jack asses. She brushed a hand through her short hair and shrugged. “Let’s just get this the fuck over with, yeah?”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:03PM
Hasira lets out a low whistle at the grenade and the resulting outburst from Helve before muttering under her breath. “Looks someone doesn’t like criticism. What a fucking headache.” She originally came to Paracosm at the urging of a hot guy. And where was he now? Anywhere but fucking here, that’s where. She muttered under her breath more, glaring at JJ. How the fuck was she so calm during all of this. Oh. Right. Because she wasn’t. God dammit. “Che, seen better.” At least the handsome devil’s fire had flare. Heh, Flare…
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:05PM
‘Tis better to be dead and eaten than to live in constant, grotesque agony. The Captain understands this to an extremely personal level, knowing full well of the Fates that’re worse than death. One of them; is being hated by your only sort of ‘colleagues’ in a completely unknown World, where you have no other allies than yourself. Captain had an ace up his sleeve though, but didn’t want to have to let it come to that. He wanted these people to know that he was a trust worthy ally, and friend at their sides through all of this. Even though he knew none of them, and they didn’t know him. They should be grateful, but unfortunately they won’t, and they probably never will. Alas, the Captain moved in silence and kept a keen eye on the rest of his group for injuries, outbursts and any sort of random shit.

“Hold on everyone.”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:06PM
Oh, good, it seemed Helvegen might have something to say. Of course he did. He reached up, free hand pinching the bridge of his nose. He glanced over at the maids as they scavenged the bits of remains of… gods, whatever it was. He looked around after, eyes spotting Zara. She did not seem too occupied. He knew her. Or rather, knew /of/ her. Who else would have Zaire’s face other than her twin sister? “Zara.” Ash suddenly spoke up to her, making it clear he knew her name. Of course he did. “A moment, before this mad bastard gets us all killed.” He wanted to speak to her, if she was not occupied.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:06PM
Helvegen puts his hand up, looking a little worried.
 
“We’ve got a bit of an obstacle ahead…”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:06PM
The Unkindled stopped, briefly glancing over at Helvegen, brow furrowed. Dammit, what now?
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:07PM
The Captain came to a slow stop, and listened.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:07PM
Zara looked to Ash. “Yeah?” She was /slightly/ less abrasive with him. She had no reason to be. And then she glared at Helvegen. “Son of a bitch…what now?” She folded her arms.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:07PM
Through the horrible, weeping trees, there seems to be smoke rolling in. Smoke of pure, impenetrable black.
 
Faces leer at you from within. Faces you recognize.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:08PM
Maids…. they’re everywhere, aren’t they? He nearly ran into the medic as he heard Helve call them to stop. Peering over at the…. faces? “Fan-fuckin’-tastic.”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:09PM
“We’re going to have to walk through that,” Helvegen announces, sounding almost apologetic. “M’afraid you won’t be able to see. Well… not what’s around you, anyway. It’s a bit of an inception here – a dream within a dream.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:10PM
“Father..?” He said softly, approaching the wall of smoke as a face similar to his own appeared. Only for it to twist and contort in agony as fangs slide over his tormented expression and it too faded away. A cruel reminder of the past, and wincing at the pain of a memory he remained steeled and determined to carry on. So, with outta guide, he pressed himself boldly into it and disappeared into the smoke. After all, he can not truly die. Should he some how just, fall to his death? A little metal orb would return such lifeforce to underneath of where it hovered..
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:11PM
Hasira claps like an excited child, contrasted by her tone seething. “Theeeeeeey’re heeeeeeeeere!” Jemini has a sense of forboding as Helve says they have to walk through the smoke. Was this to be round two of their nightmares? Probably.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:11PM
Ash looked ahead, he was going to speak to Zara, but that was when the black smoke began to roll in. It immediately reminded him far too much of a darkness from his own realm. Why did so many things here remind him of his homeland? His grip on his sword tightened, blade pointed downwards to the ground. He did not step back, he stood there, throat briefly tightening in a hard swallow as he felt his heart beat slightly. Fear? No. He was just prepared for the worse. They had to go /through it/? Dammit. Those faces… no, not here. He knew better. He knew better back with Weary – illusions, nothing more. That was when he finally spoke to Zara. “I know your sister well. She is struggling, but she is enduring.” He glanced at her through the corner of his eyes, nodding. “She is a good woman. She spoke fondly of you.” He huffed. “Unfortunately, now is not the time for that, it seems…” he frowned, eyes focused on the blackness once more.

10/10 09:11PM
“But fear not! I have just the thing.” Giving you a dashing smile, Helvegen produces what appears to be a violin from his cloak. “Just follow the sound of my playing, and we’ll be through in no time.” Without waiting for a reaction, he prances off into the smoke, playing his fiddle loudly and dissonantly. It is a horribly unpleasant sound, but within moments, it’s the only thing you can hear. Besides the voices…
 
The smoke rolls over you, its darkness making vision completely useless. You see nothing – not the ground, not even your own hands. Nothing but your very worst fears, creeping through the fumes.
 
Which are…?
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:16PM
She was a little relieved to hear Ash’s words. “We’ll talk later,” she muttered. What /was/ she afraid of? Oh, right. She was afraid of needles. Damn things. Pointed and sharp, the idea made her shudder. Ugh. But she followed the hideous sounds. Focused. After all, she needed to get through, right?
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:17PM
Well he may not die but Randall didn’t know that. As he slipped into the smoke he grabbed his shoulder. “Hey! We stay close…. so if one of us is lost, we’re all lost.” He joked. Of course it was the opposite. Easier to find a way out…. Atleast he hopes. But the faces that he feared? Well to be frank….. His family. His *blood* family. His brother, sisters, Father, mother…. especially dear old dad. He could’ve….. maybe David was right? He was able to do something but…. he panicked. Along with a few faces that he wouldn’t expect to see. His toddler son, his mentor….. his friends. He seemed to be fearful of many….. including himself. But he could just look down. Close his eyes and listen to the violin…. right?
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:17PM
In the shadows of the smoke, he heard what they had said. Really only being a few feet away but, trapped behind an impenetrable cloud. Came he then to follow the sound of the violin in a brief run to keep up with their prance, as he saw his nightmares dash around him. Some were simple, others were more complex; a centipede slid on the air and coiled around his head as he shook the smoke illusion free. Next, a series of bubbles danced past his face as he plunged down, down into a watery abyss into the darkness. Only to snap back out of it and continue. The Violin, Christopher; Follow the sound! Only in this moment of courage would he be struck with a vivid, almost too real vision of his worst fear. Blinking rapidly in disbelief, he slowed down to watch it play out. A young man, with dirty blonde hair and a dorky t-shirt and jeans with no shoes on, stands toe to toe with a fearsome creature. This creature worse a torn up Star War’s shirt, big and burly with tattooed runes on his arm and a yellow, four limbed creature on its head. Once a Man; a very important man, as the young one stood alone with his mother and brothers sobbing wildly in terror in the corner of the fence behind him. “Father, Please!” The boy begged, but the creature lunged forwards with razor sharp hands and shambled its feet as it reeled one hand back, and struck the boy in the stomach. He screams, and in his outrage and fury he slashes the beast across the face, again, and again, before kicking it as hard as he could and letting its corpse slump back onto the ground..

*william’s shell enclosed around his body, or at least, a phantom version maybe? he had no idea, but it at least comforted him in thinking he had /something/ to “protect” himself, he walked into the fog with the rest, he tensed as he heard the giggling of little children, but kept walking, at a rather brisk pace, trying to outpace the voices and short glimpses of children around him, he didn’t stop, he wouldn’t stop, soon he was running, rather fast, maybe he passed the man with the violin? maybe not, he had no idea, all he knew was he had to get out of there, then he froze, sliding to a stop, he saw his beloved, dead, on the ground, children around her, holding weapons they had beaten her to death with, he growled, his eyes turning red, his shell and body began to grow spikes as he swiped and swung at the children in his own fit of rage, as he tried to avenge his beloved, but he would probably be swinging at empty air, he realized that he had lost everyone and began to panic, his senses searching for the sound*
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:18PM
“Che…’fear not’ he says. In the realm of fucking nightmares.” Here we go with the nightmares again. Hasira’s nightmare was in the form of that needle wielding psychobitch abomination Jemira – a perverse combination of of Hasira and the other half of her soul, Jemini. Jemini’s fear manifested last time as what Hasira referred to as ‘zombie acid dad.’ Hyde had been killed in a chemistry lab explosion and JJ felt like this was her biggest failure. Not only was she unable to undo what had been done to Hyde, but she also lost the chance to find a way to fix her and Hasira’s own split soul.

Needles drive into Zara’s flesh, as real as the ground on which she walks and the air she breathes.
 
Randall’s family reaches out to him, tugging at his clothes, clawing at his skin.
 
The Captain finds himself in the body of that boy, gazing down at the creature’s corpse with its blood painting his hands and face.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:20PM
The Unkindled’s eyes shut as the darkness loomed in and engulfed them. Then slowly opened. Did he even open his eyes? He would of wondered if it were not for illusions that struck at him. His worst fear? Something that could make an Unkindled’s slow heart come to a stop? To make them pale? He saw faces. Twisted, distorted, empty eye sockets glowing a dim red. Skin peeled, grayed, decayed. Friends he knew in the past, friends he had: Zaire, Antinous, Lucia, even Sarnai, who had already perished. Twisted, corrupted, yet looking as if they were a corpse. Children, previous friends, faces of people he protected, faces of people he fought for. His greatest fear? Failure. Failure to protect those he cared for. Failure to uphold his vows. Failure to stay true to his morals and who he was. He even saw his own face, twisted, glowing eyes, paled. He closed his eyes and took in a deep breath, which almost hitched, his heart beating rapidly. Remember Weary, dammit. Remember what was learned. Illusions, nothing more. His eyes opened, and then began to follow the noise of the distorted fiddle. Gods, he was horrible at the instrument.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:21PM
Williams spiked fists impact with the heads of the children. The noise of tearing flesh and breaking bones resounds through the smoke – but only to him.
 
Hyde lies melting in a pool of acid, reaching for his daughter, as Jemira stands over his body.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:22PM
Zara would wince, flaring her flames to prevent herself from bleeding out. “Shit,” she groaned. Of course she was hyperventilating. She was glad for the darkness. After all, they couldn’t see the proud Huntress being brought down by damned needles. She could only listen for the sounds of where she was meant to go. She did her best to keep the flames over her body. Keeping every wound cauterized as best she could.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:22PM
And when the Unkindled’s fear manifests, Helvegen, your only guide in this darkness, stops playing.
 
He turns, suddenly visible to Ash, and stares him down with familiar red eyes.
 
“Hypocrite.”
 
“Traitor.”
 
“How dare you?”
 
“WHO ARE YOU TO HAVE MADE THOSE DECISIONS?!”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:24PM
Looking down at his hands and at the knife in disbelief of what he had done, he turned to the illusion of his mother and started to sob. Doing that thing that younger people do where they try to hold it in, but choke and let it come out in bursts. “Mama..” He sobbed, and collapsed onto her and wept and wept as she, too, held her boy and wailed. They are joined by his younger brothers, who cry into their mother’s clothing as what was left of the family cried hard. Meanwhile, Captain in the real life probably just dropped somewhere in the smoke, and cried. He had cried harder than he had in a long, long time. Holding his face and clutching at his body while he sobbed into his fingers and let the tears trail down into the darkness around him..
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:25PM
The Unkindled immediately came to a sharp halt as the instrument stopped. Dammit, no. That was what he needed. To get out quickly. His heart quickened. The red eyes were all too familiar. He clenched his teeth through closed lips. That immediate feeling of nausea and twistedness in his gut returned. They were illusions, dammit! This was not real! He sneered, lowering his head, looking away from the red eyes, hand clutching the hilt of his sword more tightly. “You are not real. Not here. This is just… this…” his throat tightened, as if his breath was taken from him, and thus, his words. He listened closely, trying to hear that damn fiddle. Listening closely, which also meant he was at the mercy of those words.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:26PM
All the Unkindled could hear was the hard crying of a grown man, somewhere in the shadows..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:26PM
The arms of a beautiful Greek boy coil around Ash’s shoulders.
 
“You betraying, sanctimonious asshole. Casting your friends aside like trash, for your Darkmoon.”
 
The Other snarls. Antinous cries.
 
“How dare you? HOW DARE YOU?!”

10/10 09:28PM
*Corrupted Springtrap looked around, not caring for the blood on him or anything else, he thought he heard what was what he hoped to be the violin?! *he ran towards the noise, running faster then he probably ever had, if he could be seen he’d most likely be a blur as he ran,his eyes turned a red as he tried to pierce through the fog, his robotic legs spreading to unbelievable lengths*

“All the trust given to you, and look what you do with it.” The Other moves past Ash with a disgusted hiss.
 
“Now excuse me. I have a party to crash.”
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:30PM
Zara took a breath. She felt herself fall to her knees. Shit. Shit. Shit. She knew that her fears couldn’t be /half/ as bad as Zaire’s. She began to reach onto her arms, trying to pull needles from her flesh. “M-make it stop,” she whimpered. “It…. it fuckin’ /hurts/!” Even in this state, she was still trying to seem strong. She kept brushing at her arms. “Fucking…..make it…..FUCK!” She couldn’t get the needles out of her flesh. She couldn’t even /burn/ them away. She reached up, trying to grab at anyone or any/thing/ near her.

Such a pity that in nightmares, you never quite seem to run fast enough. Very familiar voices ring around Springtrap’s long ears. “Keep running mister! You’ll only die tired… just like we did, you murderer!”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:30PM
Those arms, he knew them well. Several embraces, the voice, the tone betrayed. The crying. He shut his eyes tightly. He was… shaking. His hands, his arms, legs. He almost dropped his damn sword, something he never did unless he was forcibly knocked down. His heart pounded in his chest. Eyes then opened, he could not listen out to the fiddle, he knew it would be his doom if he continued to listen in. He raised his head, eyes shifting to the Other as they moved past. He frowned, but not angrily, almost… sorrowful. “For… forever and true.” He merely said, quietly, then slowly lowered his head again. Listen, Unkindled, just listen. The instrument /had/ to return soon. This was just a sick game. It had to be.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:31PM
The tugs made him clench his teeth, scrunch hands, hold his eyes shut. His brother’s hand gripping his neck, his sisters wrapping around his waist, His dad ruffing his hair before gripping it. The gentle hand of his mother giving him a small pat. He couldn’t breathe, it was claustrophobic to him. Having to twist them off and contort his body. “D-D-Don’t f-fuckin’ touch me! Y-you don’t belong….. ‘ere…. please….” Randall’s voice was shaky, on the verge of what seemed to be tears. “HELVEGEN, YOU DON’T PLAY THAT FUCKIN’ FIDDLE I’LL BEAT YOU TO DEATH WITH IT!” He shouted into the smoke as he tried catching his breath. The scratches on his face and neck bleeding slightly.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:32PM
Zara’s hands would grapple onto an ankle of a currently broken Man. As he lay down on his side now in an uncomfortably loud series of sobs..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:32PM
“Hey, don’t worry.” Helvegen – or someone very like Helvegen – reaches out and touches Randall’s forehead. Is it him? His voice somehow sounds even more smug. If you could see his face, you’re sure it would be one you’d just LOVE to punch.
 
“I’ll show you the way.”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:32PM
Jemini let out a slow exhale, looking at the man that was reaching for her. If she were to be honest, she didn’t exist. Hasira is the original one and she herself is the anomaly. Her mission before was to find a way to unify her half soul with Hasira’s, making one complete unified soul. Hasira’s fear stemmed from the unknown. She did not want to cease to exist as she was, even if that meant no longer having to fight one another for control of the single body. If anything, Jemini would be the one to disappear. Jemini continued to look at the twisted facsimile of the man. “It was not my fault. Neither was it your’s. Jekyll did this and yet you had to live with the consequences of his arrogance. This was a failure, but that is how we learn and grow.” She looked to Hasira before looking at the man who never knew her as a daughter. “I am looking towards a different path now. So for once and for all, fuck off dad!”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:33PM
Jemini’s father burns to ash. The way suddenly becomes clear to her.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:34PM
Zara tried to grip at the ankle. She couldn’t let herself grip /too/ tightly. She didn’t want to break bones. Instead, she pulled her hand away, trying to stand up. “S-someone…..G-get me the FUCK outta here!” She was shaking, trying to scratch the needles away this time. Even using the claws on her gauntlets. She didn’t care anymore if her flesh was torn to ribbons. As long as the needles came /out/ of her damned skin.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:35PM
That person, so like Helvegen but intrinsically different, appears beside the Captain and Zara. He reaches out, and in one swift movement, pulls the needles from her body.

Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:36PM
His eyes open slightly to the voice. “Helve-“ his brow furrowed. “Or do ya prefer The Other?” He grumbled before gripping onto the wrist and reaching another hand to grab at maybe a shirt or his hair. “Then get. To fuckin’. Leadin’…..”

William feels a rough shove on his back. “Keep walking. You’ll find your way.”
 
Something opens in Randall’s mind. Suddenly, it’s like he can see not only through the smoke, but the nightmare itself, like a network of pulsing veins woven through the very air.
 
“Walk, or be devoured.”

Zara
 
10/10 09:38PM
She took one last shiver, pulling a vial from her belt. Red liquid poured down her throat, and the claw marks slowly began to heal. She may not have been a mage, but she was one hell of an alchemist. “Then /fucking/ lead,” she said after finishing the vial. “Or I’ll be punchin’ you next.”

The presence is gone, and from beyond the smoke, the violin resumes its playing – only now, it has become assonant. It sounds hopeful.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:38PM
Suddenly pulled up to his feet and slapped, he snaps free! Remembering now that he was out of that moment of brutal terror, that he is to use his father’s death not as an obstacle; but a drive. For his father’s honor, and in remembrance of his life, he had to press on. He had to destroy evil things with that knife to reclaim the honor lost in his awful fate. So he grasps the figure by the shoulder, grinning and shouting “You’re god damn right I do!” And snapping free of his vision! Came he then to stride forwards boldly, putting the pistol away and drawing forth the square hammer. Unfolding its blade and rejoining the ranks of his peers!

The sound. The violin. Gods, finally. He raised his head, quickly stepping forward and towards the noise. “Gods damn this place. Damn it all. Damn this realm. Gods!” He growled, his heart still pounding. He was still shaking. He was distressed, but it was shifting to that of fury.

*he heard it, the violin, he pinpointed the direction and started walking, he was limping slightly, creating a soft scraping sound of metal on dirt as he moved at a rather quick pace*
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:41PM
A sigh of relief escapes Jemini as the image of her father disappears. She looks over to where Hasira was standing before everything went dark. “Face your fears. You’ve got this!” She starts walking at a quick pace to clear the blacked out area. Hasira sneers at the needle-wielding abomination. Instead of freaking out, she stands her ground. “Jemini stole the words out of my mouth. Fuck off you voodoo freak. Even if I do get joined with JJ and change, so what! I could be stuck with far worse.” She sneers at the abomination. “Bitch, you are beneath me.” She starts walking, following the sound of the violin. Fuck this psycho bitch. Fuck Paracosm. Fuck Helvegen. And fuck that huge ass snake in the worst sort of way. She wanted out of here… and enough alcohol to keep her in a drunken stupor for a month.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:42PM
Hasira walks straight through Jemira, who vanishes into the smoke. The way is clear to her as well.
 
Guided by the violin, you know where to walk.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:43PM
She walked, shaking her head. Two more of those potions left. She should have made /more/, but she didn’t expect to be doing this shit. She grabbed another, this one a golden liquid. And she chugged it too, her markings glowing bright for a moment. She had taken a potion to strengthen herself. After all, the sun was down. So she needed it. She followed the sound of the violin, growling under her breath with her saber in hand.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:43PM
“I-I…..” he looked around. Seeing the vein like network and even the others he was here with. And they didn’t seem to get the same gift. So slowly he made his to the closest person to him. Which so happens to be the Unkindled. Walking in front of him as he tried putting on that mask. Cheery, sarcastic Randall. Simply snapping his fingers before the man. “H-Hey? Ya wanna a better guide? Over there….” he said motioning to where the nightmares were minimal and much more traversable.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:44PM
The two halves clear the smoke and stand looking around. Who was left in the smoke? Was everyone out?
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 09:44PM
There was a bird, no it was a plane? It was neither, it was actually Anthem flying very quickly on the back of a dragon shaped like jet plane. She streaked through the sky, in her normal attire with the Sword of Promised Victory on her back, and a satchel around her neck. The Scion observed he barrier from the distance, trying to pierce through it with her Eye of Insight but failing. From what she understood, this island was responsible for the chaos that was now flooding the planet and it needed to be dealt with. “Michu, don’t touch the barrier, don’t even get close unless I call for you, alright?” And with that she stood on the blue dragons back, and once she was within a mile of the island, she jumped off! Gliding into the mayhem, Anthem used a cushion of air to land right outside the barrier before entering, looking around to see what she could see.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:45PM
The Unkindled continued onward. His grip on his sword was enough to where he felt as if he would make indents on the hilt itself. He wanted to get this over with. He wanted it all done with. Damn this place.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:45PM
Capn presses forward with a new sentiment of courage in his heart, holding the Knife out in front of him with one hand clutching the blade’s handle and the other hand out flat with the finger’s slightly curled. This was to distribute balance easier, and make it so that he could slash and hack to a devastating effect with the falcion shaped blade on the knife. Running now towards the sound of the Violin and brushing past some of the others in his journey through the darkness. The Captain didn’t care, nor hate the place in any way. Even after that brutal vision; he had a purpose, and he must slay that World Eater before it turns its brutal eyes towards other Realities..

*as he limped, he closed his eyes, searching the area for any noises, or any sounds of movement, he knew something had to be hear, but where? he stopped and looked around, before continuing, he didn’t want to be here, so he kept on* why did i come here…

-Anthem’s body drops once it touches the barrier, only her soul passing through. And then a large dark clawed hand suddenly grabs her, dragging her across the island to plop down with the group.-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:47PM
“Oh, you made it!” As the lot of you emerge from the smoke, Helvegen wipes his brow – conspicuously absent of sweat – looking oddly relieved. “Wonderful. Well, children, as fun as that may have been, we are closing on the main event. So keep those smiles on your faces. Almost there.”
 
[DM] Fwuf, Nightmares Made Flesh™
 
10/10 09:47PM
Anthem would find herself surrounded by wolf spiders. Not the actual arthropod, but horrible hybrids of spiders and werewolves. They hiss and howl with chitinous throaty voices as they close in. The only safe path is one that leads conveniently to the rest of our little Scooby gang
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 09:48PM
-So she was plopped in with the rest of the gang…. WITH SPIDERS!!!-
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:48PM
The Unkindled did not say a word. Not even a mutter. He merely walked up to Helvegen. His expression was blank, but the fury in his eyes with here. Probably a terrible idea… but his fist clenched, swinging it directly towards Helvegen’s jaw. He did not even care if it hit him or just went through. He just needed to hit him. He was furious.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:48PM
This member of the Mystery Inc. now emerged from the blackness. Face proud and chest flamboyantly puffed in hope and courage as he stepped to Helve. “Even if you may be a strange figure, I am with you!”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:49PM
Ah, everyone else will find their way. So out the smoke he was. His engraved silver Hatchet in his hand. Oh how much he wanted to hack away at someone.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:49PM
This fucker…. Zara was convinced that Helvegen was really a lunatic. She shook her head. Smile? He had to be joking! Zara rolled her eyes. This main event better not get her fucking killed. She sheathed her sword. Then flexed her hands, letting the claws extend again. “Someone gonna fucking go or not?”

10/10 09:50PM
*corrupted springtrap slid out of the darkness looking at himself, then the others, was the blood still there? could anyone see it?* fuck! *he yelled to the sky shivering, his spikes clattering together slightly*
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:50PM
WHAM. The Unkindled’s fist slams into Helvegen’s face, sending him stumbling back in surprise, his eyes wide, as if he didn’t understand why anyone might be upset with him. “Whoa!” Despite his surprised reaction, there’s no hint of an injury – not even a bruise. “Wow, you’ve got a mean right hook. Save that for the snake, though, yeah?” He laughs good-naturedly and turns to lead you onwards. The fuck is wrong with him?
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 09:51PM
Anthem blinks, having stopping short of the barrier as she knew better than to just walk through mysterious, foreboding lights that surrounded large locations. But it would seem that she was actually plopped with the rest of the gang? But there were Wolf/Spider hybrids around and that got her heart going. Instantly, the fight or flight feeling came in and the Kishimoto had opted for fight. Closing her two fists and bumping them together, she took a step forward and released flamethrower like columns of fire towards the disgusting hybrids, making sweeping motions if the creatures were indeed, coming from all sides.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:52PM
Of course. What else would the reaction be? Just play it off, Helvegen. Other. Whatever he was. He sneered, eyes glaring at him. Hate. Pure hatred. He wanted to sever his head from his shoulders right there. But no, a punch was enough. It did not even feel good. Of course Helvegen would not even grant him that. Damn him. “Mm…” He just hummed, then followed. the tip of his blade remaining pointed downwards.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:52PM
“Damn,” Was all he said to both of them. Taking neither side as he just watched and followed Helve. Giving Ash a quick glance before shrugging and saying, “I dunno why that shit didn’t hurt more than it did, but oh well.” Pressing on behind the Angel of Paroxysm. His trust as high as his foolishness..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:52PM
“Oh, motherfucker. Spiderses!” Helvegen chuckles and waves at the encroaching arachnids. “Hey, could you let us through? I know my guests must look delicious, but, um. Oh.” Anthem is now tearing through them with fires. “Oh, okay. That’s one way of dealing with spiders.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:53PM
“Wait, we get to kill spiders?!” He said excitedly, hell yea.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 09:53PM
“FUCKING SPIDERS!” She exclaimed, fire everywhere.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:53PM
“Yeah, go bananas.” Helvegen pouts childishly. He likes spiders, but… eh, they’re just nightmares.
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:54PM
Spiders. Huh. Those were different. Zara had faced giant spiders before. And nearly died twice. She grinned, her claws igniting in flames. And she would launch herself at one, laughing. “FUCKING FINALLY!” Her restlessness being relieved with this. She would aim at one and, hopefully, impale it with her claws. Whether she hit or not, she would spin, flipping herself towards another to do the same thing to it.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:54PM
The Medic didn’t wait a second, before leaping through a tuft of fire to find himself a live one. Grabbing it by one of the legs and delivering a quick slash that’d cut off one of its mouth mandibles like paper. It was a good, strong knife. And yanking it to the point where it’d lose its balance he said,
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:55PM
“Hey, Atleast someone did it….” he applauded at the punch beofre following the wind god once again. Then that…… woman is just going to town atvteh spiders. Shit. He just attached his hatchet back on his belt and crossed his arms. Simply watching. Looking over at Zara for a moment and giving a thumbs up. “You alright?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:55PM
“WHAT’S UP, HOMIE!?” And stomped his boot into its face and gave his heel a twist as its blood oozed forth. He had a mighty stomp to him, all a hundred and seventy so pounds of fleshy man coming down at once.

*he looked around, and then walked up to the group, glancing at the other people, or.. down at them as he was about a good 8 foot 9 inches* well then…
 
Zara
 
10/10 09:56PM
From her place among the spiders, she grinned. “Oh, I’m fuckin’ great! Killin’ ugly sons of bitches like this is what I /do/ for a living!” She actually hummed a little as she sent flames at spiders, and as she stabbed at them
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 09:56PM
Spiders? Splendid. Wasn’t there a damned serpent they were supposed to handle? That was what he kept overhearing. He looked over at the spiders, watching as Anthem tore through them, Kanuckel’s reaction would of made him huff, if the circumstances and recent events did not wear heavily on him. “What are you?” He suddenly asked, his tone strangely calm, not at all matching the look in his eyes. The question, of course, was directed to Helvegen. “Aside from a bloody madman.”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 09:57PM
While most of the group glared at Helve with hatred, Hasira just grinned. Okay, this was more entertaining than she originally thought it was going to be, even if her boots were ruined. She draws her blade before jumping into the fray, careful to stay out of the line of fire of the new pyrochick..and Zara too apparently. Meh, still not as hot as the guy that talked her into coming here.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 09:58PM
“Whoo,” Helvegen cheers hollowly, his bizarre enthusiasm having considerably faded. Killing spiders is not his favourite pastime. He used to be friends with some spiders. But then, he used to be friends with some humans, and they got made into living trees, so… everyone’s equal in death, he supposes. “Well done, you brave heroes. You’re splattering and sploding the spiderses. How truly. Heroic.” Everything comes out deadpan, except the word ‘heroic’, which he spits like a venomous curse. “Now, if you’re quite finished, we can move on, yes?”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 09:59PM
Anthem was careful not to hit anyone that wasn’t a spider with fire, but with great prejudice did she bare down on her own nightmares with purifying fire. She didn’t stay still either, using the flames to pick up speed as she moved around until she stopped by the group; eyeing Helvegen. She stopped, assuming there were no more hybrids after her. “Helve… You’re here? What’s going on? These…creatures, these nightmares; why is this happening?” She questioned the man she thought herself familiar with…
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 09:59PM
The Captain meanwhile was caught in heavy melee, eating a couple bites and slashes now and again with no apparent damage to his clothing. But alas, patches of blood started to soak through regardless, for a Player’s outfit would never fade from his form unless he himself removed the article of clothing from his body. And even then, it could self repair. A Spider-Wolf bit his leg, where it got a knife to the skull and he yanked its dead mouth from his flesh. Turning around to plant a kick firmly on its head and use his other hand to guide its stunned body to the ground. Where he slashed it across the waist and shoved its limp body away to fight another. This one, he side stepped. Slashing it in the butt a couple times in a few, quick light attacks and then following it up with a hard cut that made the beast rear up in pain. Also to rally a better attack on the Medic! Alas, he catches it with a sudden guard break! Slamming into it with a headbutt that kinda curved up and left it stunned enough for a finisher: Grabbing its face, and stabbing its neck before twisting the blade and hurling its body over his back. “YEA-!” Another hard kick sent a smaller Wolf-Spider rolling,..
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:00PM
“Wow…. Like Zaire said…. you’re the muscle and she’s the brains….” he smirked. Occasionally giving a spider too close a kick and looked up at Helve. “Where is your goddamn dad so we can kill ‘im already?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:00PM
“Who, me?” He blinks at Ash’s question. Then he smiles a little, as if remembering some important detail. “I’m your guide, silly! Isn’t it obvious?” He looked over at Anthem and clapped his hands with childish excitement. “Oh, hooRAY! You’re here, Anthy! I was hoping you’d arrive.” He danced a little jig before motioning to the others. “I thought you wanted to play break-the-snake, and yet here you are spider-punting. Come ON!”

10/10 10:02PM
-So many dead spiders. Was killing them really necessary? Or are they dead because you wanted to kill them?-
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:02PM
She paused and rolled her eyes. “Yeah, yeah.” She stepped away from the spiders. “Well, let’s fucking /go/ then!” She shook her arms, flicking guts from her claws. She glared at Randall. “Zaire’s usually right about stuff like that.” She brushed her hand through her hair. And continued onwards. “Come on, Helvegen. Where the /fuck/ are we going?”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:03PM
Not the answer he wanted. Of course it wasn’t. Did he /truly/ expect Helvegen to answer genuinely? Yes, he was the guide, but… ah, forget it. He sighed, watching as the spiders were mercilessly slain. He reached up, pinching the bridge of his nose with his free hand, frustration engulfing him, his other hand holding his sword. He then looked over at Anthem. He barely remembered her. He assisted her in one of the Cards. A battle. That was how he met Zaire to begin with. What was she doing here, anyway? Better not to ask. It did not matter to him. What mattered was this supposed serpent. He was starting to wonder if it was even a good idea to assist at that point. Was it truly wise to assist him?
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:03PM
“Break the snake?” She looked around to the party, not familiar really with anyone else here. So, she bowed her head lightly, introducing herself to the lot. “Greetingsm travelers, I’m Anthem.” Politely, a closed right fist into an open left palm. Then, she fell in line; cautious to her surroundings as she remained on guard.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:03PM
With one last Spider-Wolf having reared up in an offensive position, it was only to receive a harsh knife in its guts as the Medic grappled with it. Pressing the blade deep into it and holding its back with his other hand while he growled and it squealed over his shoulder. He heard Helve’s words, and tossed it away before gesturing to the others, even the newer members of the group. “LETS GO!” And closing the knife. It was oddly clean, despite what it had just cut through. And producing the pistol, he covered anyone’s backs who happened to be running from the Spiders towards him. ‘POP! POP! PO-PO-POP!!’
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:06PM
“HEY SPIDERS,” Helvegen said, turning around suddenly and gazing at the oncoming eight-legged monsters, his eyes blazing with nightmarish power. “IF YOU COME CLOSER, YOU’RE GOING TO DIE. FUCK. OFF.” His voice was strong enough to cause the nightmare to ripple, and blow some of the spiders onto their backs. You yourselves feel as if you’re standing against a powerful wind. After a moment’s hesitation, the creatures scuttled back into the woods, leaving the exasperated Angel of Paroxysm to sigh in frustration. “Jeez. Those silly things never learn.” Without another word, he turned on his heel, walking towards the edge of the forest. You’re almost there.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 10:07PM
-See? The spiders could have been repelled without you slaughtering them. The ones that are dead are dead because YOU WANTED TO KILL. Some heroes.-
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:07PM
Jemini raises an eyebrow, considering what had happened at the masquerade. “Your role has to have a deeper purpose than simply just being a tour guide.” Krieger’s deal was the blurred line between hero and villain..and the whole deal with masks hiding true intentions. What was the connection between Helvegen, his father, and this place? Hasira just smirks, knowing JJ’s train of thought. “Looks like you aren’t the only with daddy issues, eh JJ?”

Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:08PM
The Unkindled raised his arm to shield his face from what seemed to be a form of strong wind, even though he knew better. As soon as it faded, and the spiders scuttled off, he just huffed under his breath. And this was why he did not attack, he had no reason to. They just seemed to desire a battle. He just wanted this over with. That was /all/ he wanted. Kill the serpent, leave. That was all he asked. He should of stayed in that damned cave. He sighed, but followed regardless.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:09PM
Capn watched the spiders retreat and put the gun away. Doing a quick little dance where he rolled his shoulders and his fists. One over the other and slowly lowering with each roll. “Ha ha! Baby go Rat-Tat-Tat-Ta!” After this, he pulled the pistol back out and pulled one clip back out, putting it back into his inventory for it to redistribute the bullets he had into his clips to make another full one, while he himself put a fresh one in and knew that he had sixteen shots. One in the chamber, and a whole ‘nother clip. Not very affected by the Wind and just closing his eyes as he walked against it.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:11PM
Brushing some hair away from his face due to the wind, he caught a glance of the Island’s edge. Pulling out his map and brushing off any spider gore on it, he gave it a quick look over. “Thank fuck….. At least we’re makin’ *some* progress….” he watched the glowing marker before tucking it back into his jacket. Along with taking his silver bastard sword out it’s sheath. He might actually need to kill a thing now.
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:11PM
Zara frowned .Damned wind blew out her flames. She just ignited them again. She stalked off, following still. “We’d better be getting fuckin’ close,” she muttered. “I’m getting /real/ fuckin’ tired of this shit.” Zara stretched her hands over her head. She was /impatient/ now. Part of her was ready to just /leave/. But, hey, it’s not every day you get to punch a giant snake with your flaming claws, right?
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:11PM
There was no way Anthem would have even tried that, nightmarish creatures couldn’t be normally reasoned with.The wind blew by her, but her stance grounded enough to stand against it. But, the Kishimoto woman didn’t look the gift horse in the mouth either, instead with the creatures out of sight she was able to steady herself. A deep breath, a wipe of her forehead, and a careful switch in mindsets and the Scion was back to her normal self. With a flex of her fist, several bands of stone wrapped around her arms like bracelets; for future use. Then, towards the forest it seemed.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:12PM
Walking along the coastal line, Alistra had one hand draped over the silver and blue cutlass on her right hip, while the left hand idly held a half consumed bottle of a dark drink, possibly rum, “…Yo, ho, all hands, hoist the colors high…” She sang quietly, until she stepped closer to the coast, out from under the low trees, she wandered, but, something felt off. Very off. Alistra peaked a scarlet brow and stepped forward, only to find herself definitely not there. But there. But not there. “…Fuckin’ hell is this shit?” She looked back and saw her body just a laying in the sand, bottle in hand. Looking down at herself, she found herself like that too, but standing. Shaking her shoulders, she opened her mouth to say something, but only found herself being yanked into a whirling wind tunnel of some sort of portal. “No, no no no no! Not without my bloody body ya’ fuck!” Alistra felt herself get yanked around, and she tried to control some sort of air to keep herself from flipping, “I’m gonna fuckin’ hurl…” A snap and a crack! Blinking, a single aqua blue eye, she looked around, wobbling on her feet. “Where the fuck am I?” Alistra went forward, her head still spinning. Checking over herself briefly, she walked along, until another snap echoed behind her, only for it to be another portal, and sucked her in. Yelling, cursing, thrashing, she was promptly spit out, landing hard on the ground, “F—UCK!” An long curse was yelled out, and she leaned up, seeing a group of people. “Fuck!”

Paying attention to his medical duties, he looked back behind him and payed no attention to his own wounds as he cried out to them, “Anyone hurt?”

Anthem looked back to the Medic. “I’m fine. Are you injured?” She spied the blood on his otherwise perfect clothes.

10/10 10:13PM
“I think,” Helvegen said carefully, “we’re fine.” And with that, walked out of the forest, to the very base of the colossal mountain of bones that was Jormungandr, the World Serpent.
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:14PM
Zara had heard that voice in her head. Hero? That was funny. Nah. She wasn’t a hero, nor did she /pretend/ to be. That was her sister. Zara was a simple hunter. She just liked to fight. Liked to add pelts to her collection. She looked to Captain. “Nah, I don’t think so.” She looked over herself. Oh. Seems she had bumped something. A bruise was forming on her arm. Oh well. She’s had worse. She shrugged.

10/10 10:17PM
“Yo I’m good, homie. Come on! There’s plenty of blood in here yet for /this/ body to spill!” It wasn’t that bad, just minor lacerations with no sign of any major blood loss. A couple punctures in his leg from that bite, but he felt no poison in him. And he ran as though they meant nothing to them, coming over to Zara and seeing her bruise for a quick look. It seemed alright, so he just looked up to her and nodded before running off to another side of the group. But, might as well be full health right? So came he then to bring that red bar in his top left to full, by producing the green vape pen and pulling that thing till the injuries and stains simply faded away into nothing. He blinked, then let a fat cloud forth from his lips and shook his head. It pleased him to see the rest of his team was A-Okay! “Fantastic! Go green, dog.” He put that away then, and simply stared up in awe at the World Devourer..
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:17PM
“Fine over here.” Jemini and Hasira answered in unison. They sounded similar but their inflection was different. Somehow, it was really kinda creepy.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:18PM
Anthem stopped for a moment to stare, in awe, the massive snake skeleton. She remembered, offering a single bolt of lightning that helped slayed the beast before them. “Yeah. I remember….” She replied to Helve, never taking those crimson eyes off of it.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:19PM
“Well, since we’re all here, I suppose we should, um, get started. Yeah?” Helvegen rubbed his hands gleefully, scanning the present faces. And then, he frowned. “Aren’t we all here?”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:19PM
Alistra got up and looked around, rubbing her rear and then dusting herself off, “Where the fuckin’ hell am I?” She looked around, her single gaze looking over people that seemed to be beaten and battered, or in complete shock. She herself had not a clue what was going on.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:20PM
“Ah, welcome to the party…” Helvegen looked at Alistra. “We were going to kick the shit out of Pop-Pop back here again. But now… hmm. Seems someone’s missing.”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:20PM
“Is that a wha- oh! Holy shit…. ya really meant World Serpent….. fucker’s huge….” he muttered under his breath. Taking out his small notepad from his back pocket to get a quick sketch. He never really got to see it alive but.:.. same difference, right? He simply looked the creature up and down. “Now how…. do we kill you….. again….” he said to himself before looking to Helve. “Huh….. you’re…. just okay with us killin’ your dad for a second time? Mighty odd…..”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:21PM
Hasira let out another low whistle at the sheer massiveness of the pile of skeletal snake bones. “My what big teeth you have…” Jemini looked over the at the group of people. New ones kept popping up so it was a little hard to keep track.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:21PM
The Unkindled looked around, looking across the others. He did not recognize Alistra at first. A second glance, he remembered her as a common patron of Red Sun. Well, at least they would certainly have the numbers for such a thing. He then turned his head to look at Helvegen once more. “Who’s missing?” He frowned.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:21PM
“Um… it should be… simple… enough…” Helvegen’s voice is halting as his frown deepens. “No, seriously, someone’s missing.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:21PM
“I am here to smite this thing, so lets get it crackin dog.” Came he then to reach back into his back pocket, pulling forth the grenade and saying, “Yo don’t get your panties in a knot this time, yo. I’m hurling a grenade.”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:22PM
“No, stop. Stop everything.”
 
Helvegen is starting to sound agitated.
 
“Where is she?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:22PM
Good thing he said something before he continued, looking back at Helve and asking, “What? Who?”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:22PM
Anthem stopped in place, opened all her senses and /listened./
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:22PM
Zara grinned. “Oh. Fuck the hell yes!” She let her entire body ignite in flames. She was grinning almost like an animal. Yeah, that thing about her not being a hero? Pretty accurate.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:22PM
Alistra raised a scarlet brow, and she scratched the back of her head, red hair slightly tangling as she did, “Pop-pop…?” She looked around, “…What is a pop-pop?” Her eyes beheld a mountain. She gawked, in silence, and awe, and stood still.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:22PM
“Where’s Kida?”
 
Helvegen moves to each of you, scanning your faces as if expecting to find her likeness in one of them.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:23PM
“Fuck you, man, get out my face.” He said, pushing Helve back as he scanned him. Cap wasn’t trying that shit.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:23PM
Anthem looked around really quickly. “Not… here?”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:23PM
Alistra pulled her eyes from the mountain, and blinked at him. “What?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:23PM
“Not here?”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:23PM
He looked around. “Who are you…” he raised a brow, glaring at the man as he scanned his face. “Do I really look like the Mother O’ Twine to you?” he grumbled.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:23PM
Helvegen chuckles.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:23PM
Jemini raised an eyebrow. She had not heard of the goddess of twine.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:23PM
Kida? The Unkindled’s brow raised. He knew the name, never spoke to her. He looked directly into Helve’s eyes when he scanned over him. He frowned, eyes narrowing. “Seems like your friend is not around.”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:23PM
“Not. Here?”
 
“After all the shit I’ve gone through?”
 
He runs a hand through his hair and chuckles again, longer this time.”
 
“She’s NOT HERE?”
 
Corrupted Springtrap
 
10/10 10:24PM
*he stood there looking at the mountain, he was not fazed by the mountain, he then looked at them*
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:24PM
“Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME?!”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:24PM
The Captain felt very awkward in this moment, watching them laugh and shout as he took a couple steps back and just sorta, danced in place with the grenade in hand. Waiting for them to settle and him to get cracking on this bony boi.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:25PM
The nightmare begins to bleed. Blood drips from what seems like thin air. It pools at Helvegen’s feet as he continues laughing.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:25PM
Anthem shook her head and prepared herself, this didn’t look good. She too, took some steps back.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:25PM
“Can’t we like… kill the snake without ‘er?” he asked with a shrug.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:25PM
“NO!!!” Helvegen roars. This time, it’s more than a strong wind. The trees closest to you are torn from their roots and tossed, screaming, into the distance.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:26PM
“Oooookaaaaaayyyyy…..” he said, taking a few steps back as well as everything started to bleed.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:26PM
“THAT LYING, HYPOCRITICAL, TREACHEROUS, POSTURING BITCH OF A GODDESS.”
 
“I SEE. I SEE HOW IT IS.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:26PM
And the Captain raised both arms this time to cover his face, as he dug his boots into the earth and slid back several feet through the blood and dirt that was there. Looking down at the ground and around him as he started to say, only to have his voice choked out by the wind, “Whoa-WHOA, WHAT THE HEY!?”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:26PM
Alistra turned her head, “..A snake? That’s what’s goin’ on?” She furrowed her brow as the wind blasted, willing a sphere of it around her, controlling and manipulating the air. Not a hair moved on her.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:26PM
“Helvegen. Enough. Calm yourself.” The Unkindled frowned. Gods, he did not need another explosive reactio–too late. He leaned his head back, inhaling deeply, then stepped back. He then watched as the blood formed around the madman. Then the wind, which nearly knocked him off of his feet. “Helvegen! Calm yourself! Gods!” He growled.
 
Corrupted Springtrap
 
10/10 10:26PM
*he raised an eyebrow watching his reaction*
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:27PM
Hasira stares at Helve. “Aaaaand shit has hit the crazy fan.” Jemini looks at Helve. “What does this Kida have to do with you? And more importantly your father?”
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:27PM
Zara sighed. “You FUCKIN’ KIDDING ME?” Sweet Zenith. She was beyond annoyed. The damned wind kept blowing her flames out.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:27PM
“AFTER ALL SHE’S DONE TO ME, SHE SNUBS ME. PROVING ONCE AND FOR ALL…” He can’t even finish his sentence. His blazing blue eyes rake across all of you.
 
The temperature drops to nearly sub-zero.
 
The Angel of Paroxysm rises into the air, as the ground beneath you trembles and cracks beneath the weight of his power.
 
Corrupted Springtrap
 
10/10 10:28PM
*his metal bones creaked slightly as the temp dropped, but otherwise seemed unfazed*
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:28PM
The hair on Alistra’s arm’s raised and she felt a shiver go down her spine, visibly shaking her shoulders, “Alright, mate… Knock yer’ shit down a notch.”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:28PM
“Father,” he hisses, his words slicing through the air like a knife.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:29PM
Alistra stepped back, away from the ground giving way.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:29PM
The serpent’s hollow eyes blaze with unnatural life. Its bones rattle as it stirs.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:29PM
The blood freezes around Kanuckel’s feet, looking down to it now as he stopped sliding and felt himself grow stuck. The ice was tighter than normal, due to its bloody nature and he struggled for a moment before pulling his left, then his right boot free. Bits of bloody red ice breaking out into little shards as frosty clouds came from his mouth, unfazed by the cold because of his hot blood. “Damn dog who turned down the heat.”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:29PM
“Kill these worthless creatures.”
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:30PM
“Will you fuckin’ chill? And I don’t mean that literally. Now. Can I just….use my damned fire now?” One last try, and she’d ignite herself once more.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:30PM
Alistra reached with her left hand, drawing the silver cutlass on her hip. While she did, she took a few steps back, lining up with the rest.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:30PM
Gods, he wished he had his cloak, the chill sent shivers within him. Then the ground shook. He dug his feet firmly into the ground to prevent himself from staggering over. He raised his blade, watching. Then… the eyes. The bones shift. Helvegen gives the command to kill. Wonderful. “Bastard.” He muttered under his breath.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:30PM
She took an earthbending stance against Helve’s roar, imbuing herself for the moment with earthen energy. “Becoming the mountain.” She muttered to herself as she remained unmoving. Now those crimson orbs focused themselves on the man’s yelling. The Scion looked towards Ash for a moment, getting ready to say what he was saying. Then back to Helvegen, he was clearly manic. Anthem then pulled her sword off of her back, the sliver blade with blue and golden hilt expertly within her grip.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:31PM
“Huh?” Was all he said to Helve, right before shit. Went. Down.
 
Corrupted Springtrap
 
10/10 10:31PM
*he unsheathed his two twin swords, they had celtic dragons along with ancient text in the blades, he growled, changing to his corrupted form as he looked at the snake*
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:31PM
“Hey! I ain’t *completely* worthless, ya sack o’ shit……” he grumbled before getting into a right handed stance with his sword. Taking another couple feet back. Along with pulling up his scarf slightly to keep himself warm.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:31PM
The nightmare strains to contain the power being funneled into the serpent’s remains, powering it and giving it the tremendous strength it needs to uncoil. It rattles once more, before opening its mouth and ROARING – a noise so devastating that the air literally cracks. The nightmare struggles to continue producing that incredible power, directing it all into those bones.
 
Helvegen stands astride the serpent’s enormous head. His clothing has changed – he is now clad in long, black robes. A scythe of bone is clutched in a single hand. In his other, held above his head, is a fireball the size of a small building. Black veins pulse beneath his skin, only slightly less frightening than the insanity blazing in his eyes.
 
Corrupted Springtrap
 
10/10 10:33PM
*his eyes turned red as he glared at the being….before he fell into a hole in the ground, visibly becoming a pancake*
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:33PM
The Unkindled did not even flinch at the roar, the reality seeming to crack. He took one step back. Should he? Was this worthy of the use of one? He came to the determination quickly that he indeed likely had to. Sword in one hand, he reached down into one of his satchels. What did he grab? He did not make it clear, his arm merely tightened, as if he gripped something. Suddenly, a flame erupted from the satchel, up his arm, and across his entire body. It looked as if he was completely engulfed in fire for a brief moment. When it faded, little splotches or glowing red emitted around his entire body, like a hot coal after a fire had died out. He pulled his hand out from the satchel, then gripped his sword with both hands, raising it, stepping back again, watching.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:33PM
While Hasira grins with delight like a child in a candy store, Jemini looks less than amused as she draws her blade. Why does everyone around here have to be so edgy? First Magicia and now Helvegen? Must be something in the water.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:34PM
Many times had such loud sounds struck his ears, many kinds of explosions and screaming and gunshots. Many times has he suffered temporary hearing loss before the suit around his body could restore it to him and let him recover. This, was one of those moments. He was deafened, only hearing the ringing sound of emptiness while he winced and held his head. Waiting for the sound to stop before he looked up at Helve. “Damn traitor! I knew he’d do this shit, man! Come! Come let me give my father his honor back by dousing my blade in your blood and bone!” Came he then to draw forth the Storm Hammer once more, opening the blade and putting himself into the position his father trained him for.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:34PM
The serpent rears back, and promptly vomits a liquid mass of black oil at you.
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:34PM
Oh? Ash had a neat little trick. Pretty cool. She sighed. “So, do we punch it now? Or do we just stand here and fuckin die? “
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:35PM
Helvegen snarls and hurls his fireball. Any struck by the oil are set alight.
 
“DIE!”
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:35PM
Good thing Huons are immune to fire. As if it weren’t obvious while she was engulfed in flames.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 10:35PM
-If you die now, the beast will follow you and be free of the barrier.. best put up a fight.-
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:35PM
This caught him by surprise, as the raging torrent of flaming oil hurtled towards him and his party as he grabbed the closed person to him; Randal, by the shoulder to shove him. “MOVE IT!” and proceeded to sprint far, far out of the way and turn. Watching to make sure the rest of his party made it!
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:36PM
Anthem looked towards everyone, it wasn’t the first time she’d fought with a whole bunch of strangers. She took a deep breath, her dark green aura shimmering around her lightly as it equalized the temperature with firebending. Her crimson eyes were replaced with blood red as three tomes surrounded the central iris as she glared back at the Angel of Paroxysm that stood above her. “Is this how it has to be Helve? I don’t want to fight you.” There was a lot of fire from around her, and fireguns as well. With a wave of her hand, she tried to waterbend the oil away from the party stepping forth and tossing it back at the snake.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:36PM
Alistra had manipulated the air to muffle the roar around her ears. But, it was the fire ball that hurled she turned heel and ran from. With her ass forward, and her feet running as fast as she could, she launched herself to get out of its way
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:36PM
The very second the serpent opened its mouth as it reared back, the Unkindled knew that something was about to come out. He expected fire, and in a way, he would be right. He immediately sprinted to the side to avoid the blast. He might of been that of Flame, but he was not immune to fire. He lunged to the side to avoid the blast of oil and fire. Strike at Helve, that was what he needed to do. But how? He was too far up.
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:36PM
“Hey, Anthem, right? Can you maybe…I dunno. Throw me?” Her idea was probably stupid. But, what the hell?” She grinned.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:37PM
But the Oil was repelled! And relief swept over him temporarily for but a moment as the lady bent it back to the serpent. He cheered, “FUCK YEA! BRINGING IRONY TO A FIRE FIGHT!!”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:38PM
“Did I tell you I killed a village full of people, Anthem?” Helvegen screams with laughter, peppering the ground with random fireballs as Jormungandr’s movement creates large fissures in the earth. “And I tortured a boy to death? And I kidnapped a bunch of people to twist them into living trees?” His voice is manic, as manic as his attacks. Lightning rips across the sky, striking at Anthem, while spikes of earth rise to assail all the rest of you. “COME AND GET ME, HERO!”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:39PM
While Jemini was quick on her feet to get out of the way of the oil, Hasira was about two steps behind. She manages to get out of the way mostly unharmed, her clothing singed slightly. Ugh, this was going to be one hell of a night. Fucking snakes.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 10:39PM
-Why…-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:40PM
The burning oil splashes along Jormungandr’s body. The serpent roars as the flames begin licking across him, but his bones are preserved from damage by the power of the nightmare.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:41PM
The Captain saw his spikes coming for him, quickly jumping in the air and squatting at the same time to narrowly avoid them. Miraculously, he is unharmed! Coming then to land on his feet and watch as the lightning flared. It was both beautiful and deadly all it once as static filled the air and his hairs stood on end. Kicking the earth spike in anger due to his lack of proximity, he took out his P30L Service Pistol and began popping shots up at Helve. Knowing that if he were able to destroy him, then surely the Serpent he awoke would crumble and fall. They were far, far away though. So more than likely, each of the nine shots he was able to pop up at him would just fly past him, either way off or almost grazing them with the ‘WHIFF’ of 9mm bullets.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:42PM
Anthem looked back at Zara and nodded, “Brace yourself!” And with a circle movement she not only switched to Buaguanzhang, but put away the Sword of Promised Victory at the same time. Underneath the flaming Huon was a pillow of air, that quickly turned into a cannon that shot her directly at Helvegen. Listening to his battle taunt, she stored her emotions for later as she focused entirely on the rain of elements; underneath her a sphere of air to keep her moving at high speeds and and away from the fireball. Catching lighting bolts and redirecting them quickly to the ground, shocking her lightly as they passed through her body.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:43PM
Alistra ran forward to the line, somewhere between The Unkindled Ash and Randall, “Alright, don’t know what that fuckin’ thing is, but, I’ve fended off sharks.. and the likes. Even Black Flags. What ya’ want me ta’ do. I can manipulate the air.” She paused and held up her sword, “And I got a bloody toothpick.”
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:44PM
“HEY UGLY!” Zara was launched through the air, claws extended and aimed at the snake mostly. If she hit, she would stay attached up there as best she could. She grinned broadly, half expecting to be thrown.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:44PM
He looked to the person who pushed him. “Did you just fuckin’ shove me? What an ass-“ he was cut off as he dove behind a flesh tree. Avoiding as much of the oil as he could. Of course his long coat was flame retardant but….. Fire is still hot as fuck! So once that flaming tsunami was over he still had to dodge more flames! Sidestepping those hurled in his direction as he pulled out his revolver loading the proper rounds. Then an earth spike jutted out the ground, nicking his pistol arm as he quickly climbed the tree to avoid the rest. And with his rather…. uncomfortable position on the tree, he fired thrice at one of Jormungandr’s vertebrae. The bullets were somewhat like a hollow points, however they had specific chemicals and oils that specifically targeted enamel like substances, causing most bones to dissolve. But even if they did hit, the serpent was HUGE. The damage would only be cavities of eaten-away bone about two feet deep.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:44PM
“Somebody strike at Helvegen, dammit!” The Unkindled shouted, then turned his head to look at Alistra when she mentioned manipulating air. He blinked, then looked over at Helvegen, then back to her. He seemed to have the same idea as Zara. “I need to get up there. Or you need to force them to lower themselves so I can get in close!”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:46PM
Hasira has a realization of sorts as she dodges a pike of rock hurtling towards her, her voice loud enough, hoping that someone she had met in Paracosm before could hear her over all this ruckus. “Oi, wasn’t the last time solved with some psychological bullshit with the face eatin’ masks? They seem to have fucking cows every time we kill somethin’. So why kill us now? FUCK!” She was getting tired of getting hit with rocks and bits of dirt. Jemini is a bit dumbfounded at what Hasira was saying. She was usually the one who was gung ho, front and center of the line to beat things to a bloody pulp. She must be getting bored.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:47PM
The god atop the snake’s head turns his head the nanosecond the bullets are shot. His free hand shoots out, seeming to glitch through the air. Within the span of a few seconds, he has -caught- a handful of the bullets sent his way by the Captain. With a quick movement, he pops them into his mouth, chews for a second, and then opens his mouth again to launch a massive blast of air, filled with iron shards. The blast rakes along at each of you. There is time to dodge, but the window is very narrow… made narrower when Jormungandr reels from Randall’s own gunfire, before opening his gargantuan maw and spewing a toxic mist. The serpent then slithered forwards, aiming to crush the insects before it with its incredible bulk.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:48PM
In reaction to all three of these?
 
He ran.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:48PM
Zara attaches herself to Jormungandr’s upper jaw. She can see Helvegen not far away, blindly lashing out at the earth with his elemental power.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:49PM
That homie ran like the very whips of Satan was on his ass. He outran the blast, and the toxic mist and the massive serpent mountain and started to curve off to the side with his sprint. But the Captain was a heavy guy, and couldn’t keep it up for long at this rate. Catching a few heavy huffs of air and looking back at the rest of his party to make sure that they were alright.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:49PM
Alistra nodded, “Ya’ got it!!” Alistra set her gaze on Helvegen, and with a manipulation of the air, she formed it to be heavy, and pushed it down, like a weight over top of him. She had drawn the air up and around, like a flat disk, pressing Helvegen down closer to the ground, “Get-the-fuck-down-here! I want to talk to ya!!”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:50PM
Helvegen’s frigid eyes flicker to Alistra. He lifts his hand, and suddenly that same air would be pressing down on -her-, only with twice the pressure.
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:50PM
She smirked. And slowly pulled herself up on the jaw. She’d be silent for now, at least until she was on top of the snake’s head. Hit him? Ah, what the hell? Why not? She hoped that she wouldn’t get shaken off as she climbed. And if she made it up there, she would gather her footing, crouch, and launch at Helvegen. Aiming for his side with her claws. That was only to catch his attention for the moment so someone else could help her out a bit.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:50PM
“Well, WELL. Another aeromancer? WhAT a TwIST.”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:52PM
Instead of dodging, the master Earthbender chose to endure. To give everyone some cover, those red eyes flashed white for a second as a massive stone wall erupted from the ground. A foot thick, ten feet high and twenty feet long as a physical barrier against the attack. The next moment, with a double palmed motion in now her Hung Ga stance, the ground underneath the massive skeleton phase shifted from rock to lava; trying to pull it down forcefully into a fiery tomb.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:52PM
Helvegen’s flesh is like solid stone as Zara’s claws scrape along it. He turns his head and lashes out with the end of his scythe, fast enough to cause a sonic boom from the movement of his arm.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:52PM
“DAMN, THAT FUCKING LADY STANDS ALONE!” He cried, watching Zara tangle with the God alone. Came he then to rush over to someone after the mist had cleared and the shrapnel settled, shouting “YO, CAN ANYONE ELSE THROW ME UP THERE!?” He wasn’t about to let her fight that guy by herself.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:52PM
Alistra’s feet slid, and she went to her knees, cursing trough her teeth, “Sh-shit!” She rolled out and pulled herself up to her knees, “Fuck you!” She looked at The Unkindled, “Hope yer ready, Cause this is gonna suck!” Alistra ran to The Unkindled and kicked the air up from under him, taking him up into the air. “Jump, boyo!!” When he would jump, she would press the air harder, taking him up to Helvegen.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:53PM
Jormungandr is partially dragged into Anthem’s fiery trap. He roars in frustration, his gigantic jaws lunging directly for her. His mobility has been hampered, but he is hardly less of a threat.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 10:53PM
Hasira, already dodging other things, quickly jumps back. This time Jemini was the slower one, shrapnel grazing her arm. She lets out a sharp his in pain looking at the snakes maw and the mist that is spewing from it. Things were quickly spiraling in a direction she did not like. She could just put a stop to it and wuss out, but no way in hell would she purposefully let this thing out. If she had to go down, it would be fighting. Her mind was racing. “Think think think…there had to be a way to put an end to this. What was the endgame? The nightmares wanted out, but how could they keep them in without causing the senseless deaths that seemed to appall Magicia?
 
Zara
 
10/10 10:54PM
Oh, of /course/ she got thrown back. Son of a bitch! She felt herself being thrown away from Helvegen. If she could, she would dig her claws into the serpent and try to steady herself. Captain had it right. She was up there /alone/ and she was a little miffed about that. All right. So. She couldn’t use those? Fine. The only thing she could do? Lash out with her flames. She whipped her tail around, lashing out with a flaming ‘whip’ towards his torso.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 10:54PM
Zara was clung to the jaw, Alistra was forcing the air down against the being, only for it to then seem to turn on her. He frowned, an idea of his own sprouting – why not piss the creature off as best he could? Distract it for the others? It was just a serpent. A large, giant, skeletal serpent, controlled by some insane god-like being. “Dammit…” he growled. Suddenly, he charged forward towards the serpent, that was when Alistra sent the air under him, sending him up in the air. His eyes turned wide, but he appreciated the warning. His heart stopped for a brief moment, his mind focused. As he was launched towards the serpent and Helvegen, he raised his blade, prepared to strike it down right on the madman, aiming directly for the center of the chest. The momentum of his fall, his strength enhanced with the flame within him… gods, he hoped it worked. If not, he might be able to catch himself on the serpent, much like Zara did.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 10:56PM
With a windmill kick, a massive earthen pillar with a sharp point came out the ground alongside her, aiming to fit itself in within Jormungandr’s massive open maul. If she could, she’d force it through and through, trying to unhinge a jaw. If that didn’t work, her position called for more rocky defense. Surrounding herself quickly in a bubble of thick earth as she waited for impact.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:56PM
Alistra manipulated the air to give The Unkindled one last press up to where he was going, and with it, an assisted gust of wind, a straight tunnel across the air, picking up dirt with it, but she didn’t care.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:57PM
The fragments were indeed barely avoidable. Shrapnel peppered into his thickened jacket, the metal deep enough just to penetrate half his chest as he ducked behind the tree. Hearing The captain he offered his rounds used against the snakes skeleton. “Chris! If ya go up there, try for the eye sockets maybe it’ll blind him? Otherwise just distract that windy fucker!” He said with a wince, raising his coat and scarf to cover from the mist. This time sending rounds to expel both cold and heat towards Helvegen. Why? The convection of the air would throw the air around him out of wack. Causing it to distort and less accurate attacks for a few short moments.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 10:58PM
Even in death, it seems the World Serpent retains some of its former intellect. Instead of ramming his head onto the earthen pillar, he turns his head sideways. His jaws are big enough to crunch through that pillar, and beyond it, Anthem. The jaws of death incarnate slam shut on Anthem’s bubble of earth, coming VERY near to crushing her bones. As Jormungandr has no digestive system, she begins to roll down its throat, towards its open ribcage. She’ll get there in a bit.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 10:58PM
No one had answered his call, so the Captain did all that he could from down there. He focused, and called forth a molotov cocktail to appear in his hands. Using his left hand to pinch the wick, where it suddenly burst into flames and he rushed the creature. “YO WHAT’S UP-” Kobe! he hurled thing as bottle and flame spin head over heels of one another. Crashing into a vertebrae of the great serpent where the flames poured down its body and joined the ranks of the other fires down below with the lava. Came he then to retreat back where Randall was, shooting him a quick intense glance due to the heat of the situation and say, “I gotta have pistol rounds, bro! I don’t know if your bullets will fit!” He produced the grenade then, and pulled the pin as his turn came to an end.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 10:59PM
Alistra held his weight in the air, gusts of wind throwing clothing and armor, possibly cooling off people at the same time, if it wasn’t still already freezing. “Who else needs a lift up there??” Her gaze was focused for now, but she could hear where everyone was.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:00PM
Helvegen pushes down on his scythe, vaulting himself into the air – where he is most comfortable. His favoured magic, after all, has always been aeromancy. He times this in such a way that the Unkindled’s blade, instead of striking his chest, impacts instead with Zara’s flaming tail. And then, calls a lightning bolt straight down on the two of them, not caring when it nearly bursts directly through Jormungandr’s skull. That won’t be enough to kill his father.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:01PM
He slowly nodded. “You take .45 or 9 millimeter? It’s all I got besides .357’s….” he said to the man before shrugging. “Fuck, you can take my revolver if ya want….” he said offering up his Mateba 6. He did have a second pistol should he ever need.
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:02PM
“OW!” Fucking piece….She may have been immune to the flames, but not to the lightning. And it made her go rigid, her claws releasing from the serpent. And she began to fall. If she hit the ground, would she die? She wasn’t sure. But the lightning made it impossible or her to move to catch herself.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:02PM
Randall’s bullets are close, but Helvegen is impossibly fast, his aeromancy allowing him to change his trajectory in midair. “Fuckin’ little insect…” he growls, summoning a spear of frost. With strength fit to lift a mountain, he hurls it, where it would shatter upon impacting, whether or not it struck Randall or not.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:02PM
“NINE MILL!” He screamed, hurling the grenade at the serpent at just the right height to not reach the ground before exploding in the air. A huge force of yellow light and air pressure would assault one of his many ribs, and he focused as he called forth another grenade to replace it. After that, he looked around and searched for other purposes on the battlefield. Searching for wounded people who were still on the ground.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:03PM
CRACK. A rib was broken. One rib, out of hundreds. And the serpent showed no signs of slowing.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:03PM
She was exactly where she wanted to be, instead of rolling down the skeleton’s bony body; she bent the earth; all of it, to simultaneously explode outwards against the bone, but from the inside! With concentrated force to the inside of the creatures head; the Scion tried to grind the dirt into the bone with a sanding method. All while still inside of her protective coating of earth in a stone skin fashion.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:03PM
“Haha, I got one!”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:04PM
Alistra pushed up on the air, holding the Unkindled and Zara up. It seemed like a platform for them to stand on, solid, but feet felt like they were walking on sand. “Shit…” She dropped her sword, and used her hands, forcing the air to her will.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:04PM
The Unkindled’s eyes widened slightly as he was instead forced to strike the Yuki’s tail. Dammit! He went to catch himself on to the serpent, but then the lightning struck. The shock immediately made his body seize up and fall as well. He was not immune to lightning either. The fall would be great, certainly, but would it kill him? Even if it did, it would not be the first time.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:04PM
-… Why?-
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:05PM
Thankfully, it seemed Alistra was there to help, causing a slight hitch in his breath of relief. He might have came back anyway from dead, but dying was never pleasant.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:05PM
The power of the nightmare pushes back against Anthem’s earth, forcing her to focus more intensely in order for her to achieve her desired effect. Noticing her efforts, Helvegen extends his hand and mutters a brief incantation. Within Jormungandr’s ribcage, a horde of axe-wielding phantasms howl and strike against Anthem’s sphere of earth, seeking to break through and hack her to pieces.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:06PM
Alistra pressed them upwards so that the two, the Unkindled and Zara, were level with Helvegen. It hopefully made it easier for them to attack.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:06PM
Zara and the Unkindled fall, their bodies shattering against the ground.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:06PM
“… Why are you like this?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:07PM
Kanuckel sees this! Watching the phantasms go ham and putting his new grenade away to produce the pistol once more. Using what he had left in his pistol to pop a few rounds at them. Even if they managed to hit those beasts from all the way down there, it may not have even worked. Oh shit! Came then his eyes to fall upon Unkindled and Zara as they fall down, down to the Earth. It wasn’t the first time he’d seen people fall from great heights, and he anticipated their deaths with a, “Oh, god..”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:07PM
Think think think! There has to be a way out of this like the last time. Hasira was getting frustrated. “OI! FUCK OFF, HELVEGEN!” She looked at the snake and then back at Helve. “No one has answered why? Why are you being so stubborn? You love Magicia right? Is that why you are adding to this madness? There has to be a better answer than all of this?” She stands her arms out to her sides.
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:07PM
Ah. And she was dead? This was unpleasant. She woke up on the beach, of course, gripping her head. She was /not/ expecting that part. She took a breath. And looked at the barrier. Oh hell no. Not going back in there. No. She shook and looked around.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:08PM
He rolled his eyes and tossed the rounds to the man before the ex-thief bucked a grenade off of him. “Keep ‘em busy up there, I’ll be busy down ‘ere…” He said watching as the bolt of lightning was summoned by Helve. “If we cant kill the serpent, his son could…. m-maybe make ‘im cast somethin’ and let it hit the snake instead?” He suggested before off he was. Running to the lower body of the serpent. Of course he wouldn’t be noticed with the commotion on top. So once he got where he was, he climbed the beast just enough to stick the grenade in between some vertebrae, pulling the pin and lever before running back to cover. Maybe it’ll dislocate them, or just stun the creature for a bit.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:08PM
Helvegen locks on to Hasira, his eyes almost enough by themselves to tear a hole in her body, such is his rage. “WHY?” He demands, his voice once again ripping through the air like a claw of sound. “WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?!” Directly above Hasira, the nightmare takes shape, churning the air into a deadly, spinning mass, and projecting it downwards in a tornado.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:11PM
Cap’n caught the clips, dropping his empty normal ones out and shoving the new rounds in. Where he proceeded to empty an entire clip of those special, enamel eating rounds into their massive vertebrae, third one down from the top. Where the bullets would sting and eat their way into the bones in fifteen of the little, black cavities formed by the wanderer earlier. “Hell yea, man!” Feeling like he was really doing some damage, he dropped the empty clip and shoved a new one in before it was the end of his turn once more.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:11PM
-Something quakes. Two people have died and left the barrier. The serpent is free.-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:12PM
Jormungandr roars. He is on the very edge of triumph.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:12PM
-If the heroes can’t stop it, it will leave the shores of Paracosm and attack Hellifyno.-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:12PM
Soon, all of Hellifyno will know his wrath. Unless, somehow, these heroes can prevent its departure.
 
Helvegen senses its will. A clench of his hand stops it from attempting to leave. It strains against the god’s will, but Helve will not relent.
 
“No.” He snarls. “Not until every last one of them is broken.”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:13PM
“… Why, Helve?”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:14PM
Oh fuck. She dash to the side, hoping to get at least more words in edge wise. “What does it matter? I’m not a hero. Nor a villain.” Jemini, having had enough, Jemini joins in too, if nothing else to call his attention away from Hasira. “You send the maids with a call to arms to stop the nightmares from escaping and yet you act as if that is exactly what you want to happen? Which is it?” The blue haired woman knows what happens when they die in here – those things get out.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:14PM
“…Don’t ask me why.” Helvegen shakes his head. Jormungandr twitches suddenly, a tremor passing through his gargantuan body, jostling Anthem’s sphere and the phantoms attacking her.
 
“…Shut up. SHUT UP.” The tornado rips itself apart, expanding in a massive, far-reaching blast of wind.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:15PM
“What does all this chaos accomplish?” Jemini looks to the others. She was no fighter. She could if she had to, she just hoped it didn’t resort to that
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:15PM
In the midst of all this, the Captain unloads another clip of these special rounds into the beast. Aiming for the face and eyes now as he ran over to the left and side stepped his ass a bit out of the way of the carnage. “Eat shit, bony motherfucker!”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:15PM
With Anthem concentrated more intently against the snake, she looked down and saw the army of phantasms coming at her. Now this was a problem that she needed to break her concentration and pull out her sword for. The creatures slashed against the rocks, and Anthem moved down the line with blinding speed and strength; trying to cut through the nightmares with the power of Hope, as the sword glowed faintly its familiar gold. Feeling the quake, she did not exit the serpent, instead she decided to up the ante. “Exxxxxx….” She started as her Aura flared, pouring energy into the weapon. It glowed more brightly Her Soul now extended, covering the area in 100 meters in a black and white orb of light with a spirit intertwined with a yin-yang symbol on the outside.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:15PM
Alistra dove, picking up her blade and manipulated the air to give herself a boost. If that thing was bones, that means she can get air inside, in between them, and tear them apart. Launching herself to the serpent, she landed, gripping onto a section of bone, and pulled herself up to stand, “Fuck! What is this???”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:17PM
The World Serpent roars, as the nightmare power within it continues striving to crush Anthem’s aura – this time, to no avail. Now Alistra is inside with Anthem, who has devoured the phantoms with her aura. Their axes clatter to the ground.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:17PM
Alistra found some sort of solid footing. She pulled the air from around, and forced it into the bones. She began to push, willing that air to separate the bones.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:18PM
The Captain continues harrying the serpent from the front, eliciting irritated bellows from nonexistent lungs.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:18PM
“Helvegen! She calls to you doesn’t she?” Jemini and Hasira were trying to split his attention, alternating their questions. Even if they made themselves targets, it might give the others some time. “Why are you going to such lengths? What is it that you have to prove?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:19PM
“OH WHAT’S UP!?” He taunts as the fiend howls and yells. He sees it trying to leave and attack the World he sought to protect! That, is not in his duty. He put the pistol away and started to wave his arm. “HEY! HEY DUMBASS! YOU CALL YOURSELF A WORLD EATER!?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:19PM
Slowly, ever so slowly, the gargantuan body of the World Serpent is buckling. Even with the power of the nightmare, it is nowhere near as powerful as it was in life.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:19PM
“YOU COULDN’T EAT RHODE ISLAND.”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:19PM
Anthem looked towards Alistra, the sword glowing more and more intensely. “Xxxxxxx….” As it gathered more and more power as she aimed to try and slay the thing with a single stroke of the sword. She gestured for the woman to move behind her.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:19PM
“What are you trying to prove?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:19PM
Helvegen flickers into existence, just in front of Anthem. With a derisive snarl, he lifts his hand, to catch her silly sword and crush her hope…
 
And then, Magicia’s thought flashes through his head, and he howls as his hand is severed by Anthem’s blade.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:20PM
Alistra moved behind her. Still willing the air to pull the bones apart.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:20PM
“AAAARGH!” He reels, his face twisted in a hideous, animal snarl.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:20PM
“Stop bein’ stubborn!” Hasira continued to move about, still trying to grasp his attention. “Why do you not answer her?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:20PM
Captain sees an opportunity! Helve’s in the open! With one last attempt, he pulls the pistol out and while they weren’t paying him any attention, fired five rounds of the enamel eating substance bullets up at him!
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:20PM
NOW! “CALLIIIIIIIBBBUURRRRR!!!!!” As the Scion of Hellfiyno swiped her blade downwards, towards the…. directly at the Angel of Paroxysm. That sword blade also followed by a massive blade of white yellow light of pure energy.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:21PM
A bullet buries itself in his ribs. Helvegen gasps, looking down at his broken skin, then at the Captain. Just before Anthem’s sword impacts, the nightmare EXPLODES.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:22PM
Alistra wooped, “Yea-hea!!!” Alistra readied her own air manipulation to keep herself and Anthem in a safe fall, should they fall.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:22PM
The last thing he saw was a middle finger.
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:22PM
Wait. Why the /hell/ was she just sitting out there on the beach? She got up, and she began to run back to the barrier and braced herself.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:22PM
A flash of what can only be described as dark light sends all reeling away. Anthem and Alistra are sent flying, hitting the ground at brutal – but not fatal – speeds.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:22PM
“Come and suck on these nuts when I see you in hell, you ugly son of a-” BLAST! White light…
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:22PM
The Unkindled was already making his way back to the battle. He might of fallen once, he would not do so again. Continue trying. Never give up.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:22PM
-The Captain is Blinded! And asleep..-
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:23PM
Jormungandr bursts, his body flying into pieces. His bones scatter across the island after one last defiant roar.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:23PM
Alistra was flung, and she spun in the air, she couldn’t get the air to work with her while spinning, and landed hard, the wind knocked out of her.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:23PM
The light slowly dies.
 
Helvegen does not.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:23PM
Anthem screamed a bit as the nightmare exploded! Falling backwards as the sword left her hand, but fortunately, Alistra had her back as they crashed, but didn’t die. “OWchhhh..” She groaned.
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:24PM
Zara grinned as she ran back to the battle, chugging another vial of golden liquid. Only one of those left. Oh well. Her speed increased as she felt her markings glow. She’d get back to the battle as fast as she could. No snake was gonna keep her down, dammit. “That the BEST YOU GOT, FUCKER?” She didn’t care how far away she was.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:24PM
The Captain was knocked over onto his back, his arms laid out above his head and his legs flat on the ground. Eye shut and mouth partly open as his chest slowly rose and fell, and he was put into an unwilling sleep..
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:24PM
The Angel of Paroxysm touches down, his scythe discarded. He looks down at his hand regenerates. His face is no longer enraged, or conveying that insanity from before. Only grim.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:24PM
The Unkindled had made it, but then… the explosion, bright white, he shielded his eyes with his arm, then crouching down to level his weight to not fall over. “Gods!” He hissed.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:25PM
“…”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:25PM
Groaning, Alistra tried to get up, but it hurt. A lot. She deemed herself a piece of this ground temporarily until she could breath again. Oh.. idiot… she used her air manipulation to push some air into her lungs. It burned, but it worked. She looked to Anthem, “Next idea?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:25PM
“You blew him up.”
 
“Blew up the old snake.”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:25PM
Anthem slowly got to her feet, glowing white eyes staring down the Angel of Paroxysm. A cut above one eye covered half of her face in blood. Her stance proved that her bones were pained, but she still stood tall and tough.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:25PM
Ash slowly stood up straight, lowering his arm, sword in hand. He looked over at the seemingly grim offender. His eyes narrowed, but he remained silent, watching.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:25PM
“A whole village huh?”
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:26PM
“Aw. Did….did I miss it?” She frowned. “Dammit.” At least she had a chance to punch the snake. Sort of. She looked over at Ash. Huh. Seemed she had the same idea as him, huh?
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:26PM
Helvegen grinned nastily, revealing his serpent fangs. The nightmare twisted back into existence, twice – no, thrice as strong as before. The unreality of Paroxysm danced with power – his power.
 
“A whole village.”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:27PM
Alistra stood up, shakily, but she did. She drew her sword and prepared herself, right hand set forward, left holding the sword, prepared.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:27PM
“I’d destroy a hundred thousand more, if I had to.”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:27PM
The pair are sent back off of their feet by the sudden blast that came from Jormunwhateverthefuckthelongnamewas. Hasira shook her head, her ears ringing. She looks over at Helvegen who now seems calm. What in the bloody hell. She looks over to where JJ is pushing herself off of the ground.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:27PM
“I’d break this world into pieces if I had to.”
 
“I don’t have to kill you all.”
 
“But I’m going to anyway.”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:27PM
“… Why?”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:27PM
The Captain meanwhile, was still asleep. Unaware of the outcome of the fighting…
 
Lost in a headache and a sorta woozy feeling in the dark..
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:28PM
With his luck, Randall was struck with a piece of bone across the face. Once able to see again, he gently rubbed his bruised face and looked around, in hopes the captain made a safe descent down the exploded beast. Slowly turning over at Helve as he spoke and gave a nearby rib a kick. “Huh…. that’s a dick move……” he muttered before giving Kanuckle a kick in the side. “Hey, if you die in your sleep….. I’m gonna curb stomp ya…”
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:29PM
Zara was getting /really/ tired of that one damned word she kept hearing. So, she said it. “Why, you fucking lunatic? Why would you want to? I mean, hell. This world is all kinds of fucked up. But, you know, it ain’t /that/ bad. Plenty of work for a hunter like me, eh?”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:29PM
Her voice rang with the chorus of five hundred. She looked back to those around her, then back to Helvegen. “Oh, how you have fallen. And to think I might have called you a friend before.” The Kishimoto shook her head, putting her hands in front of her as she prepared to face off again against him if she had too. “You’ll have to break me first.”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:29PM
“To what end? To please yourself in a sense of entertainment? For some vendetta?” Jemini pushes herself off of the ground, standing shakily. “You do not seem to like the question why, but that seems to be the question of the month, does it not?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:29PM
He raised his fist. The nightmare coalesced, merging with the wind, flame, earth, frost, water… the weight of all the world, contained in one blow. His dead blue eyes stared into the Scion of Hellifyno. He hated her. She represented all he had left behind, all that he had given up. All that he had lost. The moral integrity and strength of character that he had lacked. The power of will that could’ve prevented him from becoming a monster.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:30PM
“After all I did to revive you…”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:30PM
He wasn’t strong like that. The only power he had left was the power to destroy all in his path.
 
“…Then break you I shall.”
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:30PM
Alistra’s grip tightened and she drew the air up around her silver blade. This seemed to be a fight between the two, so she would simply stand ready, and attack when she needed to.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:30PM
“You didn’t come back to me.”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:30PM
The Unkindled was no longer glowing with flame, he was back to normal. Much to his dismay. Damn, a waste. He frowned, listening to Helvegen. “You’re a sick bastard.” He said flatly. His grip on his sword tightened. He glanced over at Anthem, then to Helvegen again. The way he looked at her… they must of known each other. But to him, it mattered little.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:30PM
“ZzZzZz…”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:31PM
Helvegen’s teeth are suddenly bared. His eyes are wide. That power above his head, capable of decimating the entire island if uncontrolled, wavers.
 
“What?”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:31PM
“.. Where is my Helvegen?’
 
-A purple mist swirls around the dark angel’s body.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:31PM
“…I’m… here.” The gathering power wavers again, nearly faltering.
 
“…Aren’t I?”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:32PM
“… My Helvegen wouldn’t do this.”
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:32PM
Zara could only ask herself one thing. If… if this ended… how would she get out? She frowned.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:32PM
“If you want peace, prepare for war.” She said, willing the Excalibur back to her hand. She waited to see what Helve would do next. Waiting, watching for the proper moment to strike like any student of battle. But, it would seem that something was amiss. For now the Scion watched.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:32PM
“He would maybe give up on trying to pretend that justice exists.”
 
“But he wouldn’t cave.”
 
“He wouldn’t become like Ruby.”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:33PM
Wait. It suddenly clicked for him as he heard Magicia’s voice repeat. She was the one that solved the last conduit. Just needed her to weaken her grasp on this on as well. “If you were there….. you wouldn’t be ‘ere tryin’ to kill us- oh Mags got it….” he muttered waving his hand about and sipping his flask, listening to them speak as he checked the marker on the map.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:33PM
Alistra watched with a concerned look, unsure of what was going to happen.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:33PM
“ZzZzZz…”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:33PM
The Unkindled watched closely as well, sword in hand, pointed downwards to the ground at his side, hands clenched, eyes watching intently, closely, ever observing. He was not entirely sure what was going on. It mattered little to him. He made it clear with Tearlach, he made it clear with Sarnai – it did not matter if, at their core, they were a good person, it did not wash away what was done. He felt no sympathy for what was in front of him.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:34PM
Both aspects watch the exchange between Magicia and Helve. Yup. psychological bullshit. Called it.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:34PM
Wouldn’t he, though? WOULDN’T HE? Helvegen spat and drove his fist forwards. That power blasted forth, nearly ripping the island in two, carving another colossal furrow down through its middle identical to the one carved by his father, months ago… but Anthem, and all those standing there, were unharmed, even as the terrain was devastated.
 
…No, he wouldn’t. He couldn’t.
 
“…I wasn’t strong enough.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:35PM
All those laying there, too
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:35PM
Alistra took a step back, “….”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:35PM
-A gloomy aura of sorrow falls over you all. You can feel tears welling up in your eyes.-
 
“Did I do this to you?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:35PM
Helvegen fell to his knees before Anthem – the failed hero, falling before the true one.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:36PM
Alistra wipes at her eye, “…w-what…?” She wipes again, “..where did this sorrow come from..?”
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:36PM
“Aaaaand cue the water works. Again.” Jemini just sighed, and whispered as her eyes watered, “Enough with the commentary, Hasira.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:37PM
Tormented, sorrowful dreams took to light inside of the Captain’s Wandering mind as he was still unconscious over there. Laying in the dark mud and still sprawled out even after the world had been split..
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:37PM
Kneeling? And then… he blinked, reaching up and wiping his eye. The feeling of sorrow. It was not his own. What was this? He frowned, looked around, then back to Helvegen. He watched. Silent.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:37PM
Anthem raised her sword to strike him, for what he did, for what he intended to do…. But instead she didn’t, she put away her weapon. Anthem then looked down at the man, putting a finger against his mind’s eye chakra.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:37PM
These aren’t your tears, nor is it your sorrow. But it is no less real for it.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:38PM
Trying to put a finger against his mind’s eye chakra*
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:38PM
Zara was silent. What in the hell? She had never really /cried/ like this. She didn’t like it. She wiped at her eyes. She hadn’t even cried when she learned of Ayane’s death. Well. Not in front of anyone. She frowned. And more than sorrow, she felt angry. Because she didn’t like this.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:38PM
“Did I turn you into this? Did I snuff out the one light in my world?”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:39PM
The Unkindled disapproved immensely as Anthem put away her sword. To Ash, the man deserved death. He deserved his head severed. There was no other way. He reached up, wiping another tear away with his thumb, the frown lingering. He would give Anthem the benefit of the doubt and continue to watch closely, tightening the grip around his blade.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:39PM
The power of Helvegen’s mind, unstable as it is, is almost unfathomable. And yet, none of it is brought to bear against Anthem as she touches his chakra. He kneels there, unspeaking and unmoving.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:39PM
“ZzZzZz…?”
 
-The Captain Awakens!-
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:40PM
-The mental energy in this area is wavering. You can feel it.-
 
-The nightmares here are weakened.-
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:40PM
Anthem closed her eyes and focused, the arrow on her head glowing white. Outwardly, she remained unmoving. But, inwardly, she directed the power of her soul. Trying to seek out the corruption that gathered around what was once her friend’s soul.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:40PM
“… Helve.. I’m sorry. I never meant to turn you into a monster. I was okay.. I was okay with you giving up on justice. It’s stupid to believe in justice.”
 
“.. But I didn’t want to see you become like this.”
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:41PM
Zara let herself sink to her knees a bit. Slowly. Just so that she would be able to catch her breath really. Even if she was still crying. Even if she was exhausted. The potions were wearing off again. Ugh. She shivered. Her warmth would be gone for a while, but might come back once she rested.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:41PM
Corruption swarmed around his soul like fish in an overcrowded pond. There was hardly any purity to be found there, hardly any left. But there it was, like a single star in the blackness of outer space.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:42PM
“Huh… what the..” Came he then to wipe his eyes, and pull his feet up to a point where he was just sitting there now. Looking up and around before just staring at the dirt underneath of his feet. The World Eater was gone, and there were tears in his eyes. That was the point in him being here; no operations to cure someone’s chakra or purify the wrong. Make light on fallen heroes or any of that business. The L.A.F, and the Multiverse were safe once again through the combined efforts of many heroes this day. So the bone shards lay in ruin among the many peaks of broken earth on this shattered reality. He’d seen a broken reality like this before, and that made him think of an old friend. Then, he thought of Smiley… he thought of their face and the expression on their mask, the time they had spent together. Smiling then, as he beat back on both sorrow; and nightmare, with his own steel will and hope.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:43PM
He watched the marker on his map carefully before looking over at Helve. “So there’s to options….. We off ‘im, or…. he goes back to the lovey dovey Helve the queen likes…..” he said to himself. Dabbing his eyes with his sleeve before cursing himself. Instead he just rubbed his blood into it. All he could really do is wait for either Magicia or Helvegen to cave in. It worked at the last marker.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:44PM
The Scion focused carefully, not to lose her own soul to the corruption. It took every ounce of her mental training, brought about by many, many years of meditation and conditioning. Combined with the wisdom of those before her, 10,000 years of experience. She sought out that needle in the haystack, that pinprick of light in the abyss of darkness that was Helvegen’s soul.
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:44PM
Hasira wipes away tears with the heel of her palm. Ugh, she hadn’t cried in front of people since…well, since the masquerade but before that it had been since she was a child. Jemini didn’t try to stop her tears. She let them freely fall, although none fell from her discoloured eye.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:44PM
“I just wanted us to all be happy without inhibitions.”
 
“You and I and Fwufikins… eventually… maybe. “
 
“Where did the laughter go?”
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:45PM
The pinprick of light, dancing in the abyss, reached out for Anthem, calling to her. Asking for succor.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:46PM
Still silent, the Unkindled looked around, watching the others closely. He was not entirely sure what the Scion was doing. He sighed under his breath, keeping his blade lowered, but he was still cautious. Still skeptical.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:46PM
Suddenly! He stood! And in this emotional scene of pain and resolution, he could be seen in the far distance. A stranger to this whole group, dancing and waving his hands down by his waist as he rolled it. Moving his bulky built body in a manner that followed the beat to a song, only he could hear. Kicking it over there and rolling those red crosses like it was his business. And it /was./ The World Eater was eliminated, and he’d surely hear praise from his colleagues when he returned.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:48PM
Anthem replied, her own Soul trying to extend a hand outwards towards the light. Though the darkness, the corruption, it was heavy, suffocating. It pressed against her chest, against her stomach. Her physical body stopped breathing for the moment, mind over matter as she could feel the dark trying so desperately to corrupt her very own soul, her mind. But she couldn’t allow it; she would not allow harmony and light to fall to chaos and darkness. Not today.
 
[DM] Helvegen, Angel of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:51PM
Deep within the destructive, hateful monster kneeling before Anthem, a kindly, bright-eyed boy stood up, dusted himself off and took the hand offered to him. He had been sitting back and watching for far too long, he decided. Now was the time to show the monster its place. And while there was a time and place for the monster to come out and fight, there was also a time to smile, laugh, and enjoy those things that made life truly worth living.
 
The boy smiled.
 
“Thank you.”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:52PM
-Two of the Dancers appear behind Randall, whispering a reminder to him.- “Help her…” “Save her…” -And the glowing point on his map starts to fade.-
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:53PM
Ha Ha! Something positive happened up there! He shouted with glee and spread his arms out to the rest of his party members. “AY! We did it! Ha Ha, baby go Rat-Ta-Ta-Ta-Ta!!” And continued to roll his hips, moving his hands around and ducking a little off to the left. Slowly tilting his shoulders towards the ground as he genuinely celebrated this moment. For every victory against Evil is a personal victory to the Medic, who has lost so much to such things..
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:54PM
Zara stood as well. Gods she was tired. How the hell….She shook her head. Yeah, she was a little wary of Helvegen. But…he didn’t /seem/ hostile at the moment. So, she stayed silent and waited.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:54PM
Anthem had taken a few steps and fallen onto her butt, breathing heavily as the glow disappeared from her arrow. Even with the beads of sweat combined with blood that ran down her face, the Scion smiled at the boy. “You’re welcome, Helvegen.” Was that her friend again? It seemed a bit less destructive than the monster a moment ago.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:54PM
The Unkindled watched as Helvegen seemed to rise, back to normal? No, he would not see it that way. What was normal with him? Just purified? Like that? Unlikely. And even if it did work just like that, it still did not wash away what was done, as far as he was concerned. However, he then tilted his blade, suddenly sheathing it. However, he kept his hand over the hilt, just in case.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:54PM
“… I’m sorry I did this to you Helve.” -The nightmares around the cliffs and waterfall completely fade away. The point on the map is gone.-
 
-The nightmare realm has been weakened a bit more.-
 
-And the serpent has been stopped.-
 
[DM] Helvegen
 
10/10 11:55PM
And so, the Angel of Paroxysm was no more.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
10/10 11:56PM
Alistra set her sword into its place on her hip, and stood at a rest. Lost, confused, and defiantly misunderstanding this whole thing. The lot killed a giant snake. Some guy managed to come to terms with… himself? Alistra shrugged and stepped away, looking around at the devastation.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:57PM
He started to do a dance, where he bounced his shoulders and dusted them off. Twisting off to both sides and then doing a spin before clapping. “Woo!” A Victory Celebration: Done a little /too/ long, but the Medic cared not. He wasn’t doing this for anyone other than his own part of the Multiverse.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
10/10 11:57PM
Shakily, Anthem got to her feet. She looked around, noting the weakening of this nasty realm. She nodded a bit, satisfied with the result. “And now what Helve? You’ve still done lots of bad stuff you need to answer for. Wanton destruction can’t go unheeded…”
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
10/10 11:58PM
“Yeah…. Yeah….” he muttered to the dancers before waving them off. “Do you need anythin’ else from me? Besides the queen? And errand perhaps?” He said keeping his distance beofre they began to feed on him once more.
 
[DM] Helvegen
 
10/10 11:58PM
His eyes shining brighter than they have in ages, Helvegen gives those present a shy little wave and a lopsided grin, before fading into the wind.
 
He will be punished. This much he knows.
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
10/10 11:59PM
The Captain waves back to Helve, watching him go and offering a huge smile and a, “Goodbye, mister! Sorry I told you to lick my nuts!”
 
Unkindled Ash
 
10/10 11:59PM
And just like that, Helvegen was gone, it seemed. The Unkindled frowned, then looked around. He had no reason to stay either. How did he leave? Oh, right… dammit.
 
Zara
 
10/10 11:59PM
“Aw, what the /hell/? Now we’re fuckin’ stuck here?” Zara wasn’t having that. She folded her arms. “You gotta be fuckin’ kidding me!” The Yuki flicked her tail angrily. She hated being /stuck/ somewhere. She didn’t wave. She didn’t smile. She was too….agitated for that.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
10/10 11:59PM
-Small portals open up near the group.-
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
10/10 11:59PM
Jemini goes over to Hasira and helps her off the ground, blood dripping from her arm where she was grazed by the shrapnel. Hasira looks at it concerned. “Uhh… you okay? Cause… ya know.” Jemini grinned. “Guys dig scares?” She chuckled softly. “I am fine. Just a nick.”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:00AM
-They reached their goal.-
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
00:00AM
She sighed, this wasn’t the end with him; Anthem was sure. But for now, she needed to rest. “Fuck, that was one hell of a battle.” She limped back towards the party. “Right. How should we get out?”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:00AM
-They are able to leave this time without consequence.-
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
00:00AM
“Yo, before I piss off here, anyone need some heals?”
 
[DM] Helvegen
 
00:00AM
But before he can face Anthem’s justice, there is a queen to whom he owes an apology.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:00AM
-… But they better leave soon before these rifts close.-
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
00:00AM
Alistra pointed to a portal that opened. “…That way maybe?”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
00:01AM
“On the outside, yeah.” And with that, the Scion exited the nightmare realm.
 
Alistra Windsorrow
 
00:01AM
Alistra followed behind quickly.
 
Zara
 
00:01AM
Zara started walking off. No. She wasn’t getting stuck. She was out. Maybe she could get an answer from Tai. Oh, there was a portal. She wouldn’t listen to reason. But, before she left, she looked at Randall. “We still need to fuckin’ talk.” And she hopped through.
 
Unkindled Ash
 
00:01AM
The Unkindled turned his head to look over at Anthem. He knew he had to leave, but for a moment, he suddenly approached the Scion. He had only one thing to say to her. “You should of killed him. If more die from him, consider yourself at fault as well.” He frowned, then turned. He would not harm Anthem, not unless she herself were to commit such sins. It was his own way of telling her he did not agree with what was done.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
00:03AM
He looked around. “I…. I can leave?” He asked the dancers and Mags voice before looking to Zaire. “Yeah….. c’mon….. don’t wanna keep ya from tearin’ me a new one….”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:03AM
“…”
 
-The nearest portal to Randall gets blocked by a Dancer.-
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
00:03AM
Having no reply, the humble Medic nods and lifts his face to the sky. Closing his eyes, as he thought of all the things that connected life. Water, Air, Hope… and the Console. The great grid of Reality that stitched the Multiverse together like a massive quilt. Each dimension its own little patch in the massive blanket that is the Unity. With one last thought, he opened his eyes and cupped his nuts. “PEACE OUT, BITCHES”
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:03AM
“Help her. Save her.”
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
00:03AM
Boop. He was gone. Just like that..
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:03AM
-It seems his work here isn’t done.-
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
00:03AM
The two walked to the portal with a sigh. They give each other a look. Things would get interesting on the other side depending on how close they were to the bodies of the others. With a nod, they both step through the portal.
 
[DM] Fwuf, Nightmares Made Flesh™
 
00:04AM
A maid popped out of the bushes and played a “Wah, wah wah waaaaaaaaaah” on the kazoo
 
Captain Kanuckel!
 
00:04AM
To be a faded memory, until the Multiverse calls upon him once more…
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
00:04AM
A brow was raised. “Yeah…… I will…. now could I please……?” He slowly tried slipping into another portal.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:05AM
“… Save her.”
 
-They aren’t letting him leave.-
 
Hasira Edvardas/Jemini Jindrich
 
00:06AM
Jemini wakes up on the beach, some what surprised, she was sure that it would be Hasira. Not looking at her arm, she opens a portal and heads back to RSI. Tonight, even she needed a drink.
 
Randall Wayne, Wanderer of Paroxysm
 
00:08AM
“I’m. Bombing. This Island. As soon as possible…. he grumbled before cupping his hands around his mouth to call out to Zara. “You take care! And uh….. tell Zaire I-I uh….” he scratched his neck with a blush. “I miss ‘er….. and that I still love ‘er even if I can’t see my ray o’ sunshine…..” he said with a smirk beofre stepping away and looking down at the bedsheet ghost he folded up. “C’mon….. your comin’ with me now…. hell, might even try and find away to bring life into ya…” he chuckled to himself before returning to wander the Island. Waiting for the next marker once more.
 
Zara
 
00:09AM
Zara scoffed. Oh well. “Yeah, whatever. Don’t make me come back for you.” And she was gone too. Just like that. Because fuck it. She was done with this shit.
 
[DM] Magicia, Queen of Nightmares
 
00:30AM
-The Queen cannot forgive herself. The realization that Helvegen became so corrupted at heart, all to be with her… the sorrow is beyond words. She leaves her chambers in the castle tower behind to remain overrun with thorny vines and wilted flowers. She flees to the top floor of the Dark Tower, hiding in the office that once belonged to her dear adopted father, Mearo, curling up in a fetal position in a corner to cry.-
 
-She cannot face Helvegen right now. The office is blocked off by a pair of Dancers who keep watch, sadly waiting for their mistress to find solace.-
