Title: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 16, 2013, 04:00:44 AM
The party walked toward the final tower, not knowing what would happen to them in there. The massive tower looked plain on the outside: Mossy stone bricks on the outside rising up what seemed like to no end. They all looked at each other, debating how they should approach the unknown. Mikthanius and Sulnara both appeared next to the group, looking rather concerned and frightened.

Mikthanius spoke. "This will be the most difficult challenge you'll ever face and you've ever faced," he said. "Do not enter unless you are truly ready."

Then, Sulnara spoke. "To win, you must face many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. You must overcome no matter what. The fate of everything rests in your hands." Mikthanius looked at Sulnara wryly. "No pressure," he said.

Meanwhile, Ivan continued his fight with the Eternal Guardian, making no apparent headway in the fight.

Ivan was exhausted. He was no match for the eternal guardian, but he wouldn't give up. He was going to press on no matter the cost. Ivan straightened himself up and fixed himself to a pose. He slowed his breath and concentrated.

The Eternal Guardian cocked his head to the side. "Thou art weary and nearly out of energy, yet you continue? Why?"

Zealot looked around. "If I die here, so be it. I have never had another dream to fight for, so I'll die for this one. I am ready." He said as he took one step forward.

Strato took out his bow and prepared an arrow. "Ready when you guys are."

Amye and Alcarius looked at each other and nodded solemnly. Eguid looked at everyone and beamed. "Well, this should be fun!" he said merrily. Amye and Alcarius shook their heads with a hint of a smirk on their faces.

(wait...how do I introduce Aeron?)

Ivan looked down sighed and his mouth formed a kind smile. "Because I don't want people to get hurt by this chaos anymore. If I want to even make a mark I must fight till the very end. Even if I die here, fighting against one who's only motive is to guard what lies beyond, at least I tried my best, and if I tried my best, that means that I couldn't have done any more to save people from the chaos and that it wasn't my fault that it didn't stop. As long as people know that I didn't give up there will still be a reason to fight, because if I didn't give up then why should they give up? I'm here only to try my best to end this chaos once and for all and I will not give up now, because the battle has only begun! Let darkness take me away, let me be drowned in light. As long as I always keep on fighting hope will never die!"

Ivan charged at the Eternal Guardian putting all of the energy he had left into the attack he was going to make. He put all the spells he could cast into his blade and into his body. Quickening himself and giving power to his blade. As he neared the Eternal Guardian, he jumped and brought his sword down upon the Eternal Guardian, not caring what the outcome was, because he had tried his best and this could either end his life, or end the battle.

(Do so however you see fit.)

The Eternal Guardian was actually astonished and dropped his guard slighly. Ivan's attack landed!!!
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 17, 2013, 03:33:12 AM
Aeron was a weakling. He had no true physical strength. He was more into Wind Magiks than anything, but he did have a light sword for close combat JUST IN CASE. In this particular case though he was being attacked by monsters. Kinds most warriors would deem 'easy' to kill. but Aeron wasn't strong at all, he was running low on Magiks and he wasn't going to pull out his sword now or else he'd get eaten. "SOMEBODY HELP MEEE!" Aeron shrieked. He found his way to the group at the entrance to the tower. "HEY PLEASE HELP! I'M GOING TO DIE!" the monsters were close behind.
_______________________________

The hit landed! Ivan was now standing on his feet panting. He slowly collapsed to the ground for he was exhausted. He had used up all of his energy. If the Eternal Guardian was still standing and ready to guard Ivan was dead, or close to dead at least. He couldn't move that well. He needed rest. The Eternal Guardian didn't seem hostile so maybe he would let him sleep. 'What a foolish idea to think Ivan' he thought.

Serena walked over inbetween Amye and Alcarius and put her arms around their necks.
"We'll be just fine!" She said confidently with a smile. "We've come so far already."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 18, 2013, 02:56:47 AM
Aeron waved his hands above his head as he clumsily ran. "I SAID HELP!!!!!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 18, 2013, 04:42:57 AM
Zealot ran behind Aeron, pulled out his scythe, stuck it's head on the ground, spun, kicked the monsters onto it's blade, then stepped on their necks to finish them.

"You disgust me. You are far too weak to be here. Go. You will only die or get someone worthwhile killed. Go home." Zealot said as he cleaned his scythe.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 19, 2013, 02:04:01 AM
Aeron sat down. He was exhausted from all that running. He was relieved that somebody had saved him. Aeron suddenly realized what that guy said to him. Aeron jumped up and started to shout. "HOW RUDE! I KNOW IT MAY BE TRUE< BUT THAT DOESN'T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO SAY THAT!" Aeron then looked down in shame. "Yeah i know I'm weak and I'm not proud of it. The thing is, I would go home, but I don't know how...I don't even know where I am anymore. I was unlucky enough to get caught by those monsters when my magic was low...I've been running from them for about 15 minutes! but I shouldn't bother with my troubles..I should probably try to find my way home before it gets dark. Back home to humiliation. I'll never become a great swordsman like my father....he could wield most any blade..." Aeron slowly slumped his way away from the group. He never felt more embarrassed in his life. Humiliating himself in front of skilled and proud warriors. Couldn't even fight of those monsters. He was a failure. A complete failure. He would never become the man he wanted to grow up to be. He would always be a weakling. Aeron was shedding tears as he slowly made his way in a random direction. He didn't realize how slow he was going.

Post by: Scorpio on October 19, 2013, 04:23:30 AM
Zealot truned Aeron around and punched him in the face. He then dropped a sword. "The punch was for crying, the sword is for training." Zealot pulled out a sword of his own. They were both blunted, but it was all the same to Zealot.

"Do you want to cry about being weak? Or do you want to be strong? Pick up the sword. I'll win. I'll win the next hundred bouts. Ut it's the journey, not the steps. Fight me and I will make you stronger." Zealot said, spinning his sword.

"I'll do for you what a man once did for me. The only cath is that you will one day have to do this for one YOU deem worthy as Brian did me, and as I did you." Zealot finished and pointed his blade at Aeron.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 19, 2013, 05:38:33 AM
Alcarius nodded thoughtfully. "Yes, Aeron, training with either myself or Zealot would be your best bet," he said. "To be honest, I'm sure I'd be even more brutal in my training, but it's up to you!"



The Eternal Guardian merely stood there, waiting for an attack. He looked at Ivan thoughtfully. "You remind me of someone," he said. "I cannot place it though. But, if you need rest, rest you shall get."

Post by: Ivan Strider on October 19, 2013, 06:09:31 AM
(how large would the sword be in aeron's point of view?) Aeron was knocked to the ground by the punch. He got up and looked at the sword. Was he really going to do this? That punch did hurt and he wanted to get back at him for punching him in the first place, but....Aeron trained a lot with his father...were they implying that his father's training wasn't good enough? Aeron just kept looking down at the sword with so any thoughts running through his head.

Ivan slowly closed his eyes and drifted off to sleep, letting himself regain his energy.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 19, 2013, 03:58:47 PM
(It's a normal three foot long sword.)

"Well?" Zealot said. "I'm waiting. Remember, you can always improve, but even the best student will fail if he has a bad teacher. Come. Try me and see if I can teach you."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 19, 2013, 08:54:23 PM
Aeron reluctantly picked up the sword. Blunted, of course, for training purposes. He knew exactly why it was blunted. His father did the same thing. Aeron slowed his breathing. He had to think of how to use his sword for strength purposes. Aeron was used to using it for counter attacking, because he was a fast person. Sadly whenever he struck it never did much damage and that's what made Aeron so ashamed of himself , because he could never deal enough damage. Aeron then charged at Zealot not knowing how he was going to attack.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 19, 2013, 10:49:58 PM
Zealot kicked Aeron in the ribs. "Lesson one! A sword fighter fights with more than swords." Zealot said as he helped Aeron up. "I'm sorry. If I could blunt my other attacks, I would. I did pull my kick so it was half-strength."

Zealot smiled. "You've earned my respect for fighting instead of running. Come on, kid."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 20, 2013, 12:30:38 AM
Aeron gritted his teeth as the kick landed on his ribs. His father had told him that the more you show pain the weaker you will be mentally. His father was right. Aeron had spent quite some time trying to be able to not fully show how much pain he was in and soon some pain became less painful. "You just end up making me jealous of your strength. Nothing more." Aeron insisted as he mad made to slash Zealot. Aeron wasn't intending to hit him. Either Zealot would move and attack, or not move and attack before Aeron's attack landed. What he really did Aeron wouldn't know, but he was ready for both.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 20, 2013, 12:46:06 AM
Zealot stood there and took the attack in his arm, but stuck his own sword to Aeron's chest. "Lesson two. When you have a chance to end it quickly, take it. That would have been a kill to you, and a scratched vambrace to me. Try to think about every move your enemy makes, then plan for every outcome." Zealot said as he took a step back to let Aeron get back into position.

A low rumble could be heard coming from the tower. Something big was coming out. Alcarius smirked wryly. "What about creature annihiliation tips?" he said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 20, 2013, 01:57:59 AM
"Cut it's head off. That usually does it." Zealot said, tossing aside his training sword and grabbed his scythe.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 20, 2013, 04:38:27 AM
Strato aimed the bow at the source of the noise, and released a couple of arrows
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 20, 2013, 05:23:12 AM
The arrows held no effect as a massive statue walked out of the tower. The statue was about 300 feet tall and was armed with a sword and shield.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 20, 2013, 05:28:00 AM
Strato switched to his faeblades and took on a battle stance. "What should we do to this guys?" he asked hurriedly
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 20, 2013, 05:29:22 AM
The statue stopped. "For what reason hast thou come, strangers?" it asked in a gravelly voice.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 20, 2013, 09:16:09 AM
"To protect the innocent and kill the unjust." Zealot said far too bluntly as he stood in front of the titan.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 21, 2013, 12:26:11 AM
The statue looked at the group with interest. "What is unjust to some may be just to others. Now, please elaborate: For what hast thou come?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 21, 2013, 12:42:33 AM
Aeron almost fainted as he saw the Giant statue. He couldn't answer the giant thing, because he just got here, he didn't know where this was or why the other people were here.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 21, 2013, 01:10:21 AM
The statue looked at the entire party and looked curiously at Aeron. "You, young one. Thou hast a presence that differs from all the others," he said interestedly. "Thou hast a grand potential that shall someday be unlocked. Embrace thy training and keep thy friends close."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 21, 2013, 02:28:23 AM
Strato looked at Aeron with interest. "Seems you have a great destiny before you."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 21, 2013, 03:40:27 AM
"By 'unjust' I mean those who would and have killed others. stealing the precious gift of life before He Who Judges All has deemed time. The type of people who want to destroy the world for their own petty reasons." Zealot said, lowering his scythe. "We do not wish to fight you, we have no animosity toward you."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 21, 2013, 01:39:57 PM
The statue seemed surprised. "I sense shadows within your heart, but you seek the road of light. For this, you alone may enter. Each of you must prove your worth not by power, but by strength of moral or desire for good."

Alcarius looked at the statue. "Great Colossus, I wish to enter to protect those who could lose all they know and love, even if it means my life comes to an end." The statue nodded. "You may enter."

Amye tried to follow Alcarius, but the statue's foot stepped in front of her. "And why are you here?" Amye gulped. "I go in to protect my brother."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 21, 2013, 03:47:42 PM
"I go in because People will die if I don't. My life has never been my own, I live to protect those two. They're... Different from others." Zealot said, looking the statue in the eye.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 21, 2013, 04:37:55 PM
The statue looked at Zealot. "Thou hast been permitted entrance. Please enter. This young woman has not. She has yet to provide a proper reason for entry."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 21, 2013, 07:28:15 PM
"I refuse to go without Amye. She's... Different." Zealot said, standing by her.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 21, 2013, 11:12:44 PM
Amye looked at Zealot with shock evident on her beautiful face. "How?" she asked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 21, 2013, 11:42:17 PM
"Different. I do not know how else to explain it. You are... Special to me..." Zealot said with a far off look and a rushing red overtaking his face. "You're... Kind. And beautiful... I... Enjoy your company more than the others'."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 22, 2013, 01:52:22 AM
As Aeron heard that he had a great destiny he fainted. He was in too much disbelief.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 22, 2013, 02:06:32 AM
"Uh... He's with me too..." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 22, 2013, 03:22:18 AM
The statue shook its head. "The young one must be trained and quickly or he shall surely perish within the temple. The rest of you are now permitted to enter. Keep a close eye on each other."

The party walked into the temple, but all Amye could think about was what Zealot had said. Was she really that special? Was she really that different? Her face became a light shade of red. Now that she thought about it, she too enjoyed the presence of Zealot. He was...different. Though he had shadow in his heart, he is taking the road of light and peace.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 22, 2013, 05:09:29 AM
Zealot would not walk near Amye. He had said something he could not take back, but did not know how to follow up. He was more worried about that than enemied. He had trained all his life with weapons, not words. He knew how to kill an enemy and how to kill a whole brigade, but not this.

"Maybe the monks were right..." He thought to himself. "Maybe I am only made for killing, for death. Maybe I am just a weapon... Maybe I am an affront to He Who Judges All... I don't know any more..." He thought as he kept looking at Amye. Her hair swaying back and forth as she walked. The way she held her shoulders when she walk to show how pround, powerful, and secure she was... Her hips, how they moved back adn forth in a hypnotic way... "Why am I looking there?" He thought as the creeping red began to take his near-colorless skin again.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 22, 2013, 05:23:07 AM
Amye steeled her will and dropped back to Zealot. "Hey, Zealot," she said. "Did you mean what you said to the statue?" Her face was expressionless but there was a spark of hope in her eyes.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 22, 2013, 05:25:49 AM
Zealot gave a blank stare. He knew not what to say, so he said the truth, and as little of it as he could. "Yes," he said. "I meant every word. You're different from the others and I enjoy you being alive. Please do not change that by dying." He said, trying to be affectionate.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 22, 2013, 06:23:39 AM
Amye blushed. "I enjoy having you around too," she happily admitted. "You have shadows within your heart, but you walk the road of light. I'm proud to know you." Then, she hugged him. Alcarius looked on approvingly.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 22, 2013, 02:44:43 PM
Zealot freaked out and jumped when she hugged him. Honestly, this was something he never expected. "My feelings toward you... They are more on the... Amorous side... I love... Talking to you." He said as he could not help but look at her face and chest, for some reason.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 22, 2013, 07:49:32 PM
Amye smiled. She buried herself in Zealot, enjoying the embrace. Alcarius began walking over to perform big brother duties.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 22, 2013, 08:20:40 PM
Zealot broke the embrace. "We have a mission. If we both survive this, I'd like you to be my wife. For now, though, we must fight them."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 22, 2013, 09:34:24 PM
Strato was about to speak, but the statue permitted entry to everyone. He walked in and followed the others. When he caught up Amye hugged Zealot. At the sight of it he saw Vena hug him as he was about to leave to the ship.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 22, 2013, 11:08:24 PM
Aeron came to and almost fainted again, but he quickly regained himself. 'No! You cannot faint again, you must not faint or you could end up getting eaten by monsters in your sleep.' Aeron picked himself up and brushed off his pants. "I'm guessing I'm too weak to go into that tower huh. Well in that case I'm going in anyway. There's nowhere else to go, the surrounding places will be filled monsters as well, no reason to not go in anyway. Sheesh, how did I get myself into this mess anyway." Aeron started to think out loud.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on October 23, 2013, 03:32:40 AM
Amye was blushing furiously. "I'd love to-" she began. She was cut off by a sharp blow to the back of her neck. Strangely, Zealot was the one who dealt the blow, but it also wasn't Zealot. The party quickly realized that this place was more dangerous than anybody imagined.

Alcarius leapt after the fake Zealot, but a copy of Eguid smacked him out of the air with his staff.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 23, 2013, 03:45:59 AM
"Oh joy... Everyone! Attack one at a time and gang up on them!" Zealot said with his eyes burning with the fire of passion.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 23, 2013, 10:16:06 PM
Aeron's eyes darted around, if everybody had a clone here, then shouldn't he have one to? It was the perfect match too, because if you can beat yourself as you are, then you have become stronger. Everybody here was stronger than Aeron himself so wouldn't their copies be the same? Aeron had to find his own or else he would be useless. He would die, and he would never become the person he wanted to be.

__________

Ivan awoke with a gasp. Was it a dream? His once comrades. They were being attacked by themselves? This was horrible. Not only would they be attacked by themselves, but people who were with them at one time! Unless...no it was too obvious that Ivan's clone would be there all the evidence pointed to it, but..it was a dream. There was a possibility it wasn't truth....Ivan tried not to think. He needed to move forward anyway. He had survived and regained some strength. His stomach growled and that made Ivan jerk in pain. He hadn't eaten or drank for a while either. Maybe the eternal guardian could help.

Strato jumped forward by instinct and sliced the Eguid clone with the faeblades.

Post by: Halcyonic Legend on October 24, 2013, 03:26:11 PM
"We should all just attack our own clones so we don't mix anything up." Serena stepped forward and unsheathed her twin knives. She sprinted forward with her knives at the ready, and her clone did the same. They began hitting and countering at amazing speed, not a single slice getting through to each target.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 24, 2013, 07:34:04 PM
Strato sighed. "See, this is why your plan won't work. You're fighting yourself, it's nearly impossible to win. Fight someone else who's weaknesses work with your strengh." He shot a hail of arrows into the sky, landing at the Zealot clone
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 24, 2013, 08:31:49 PM
"Thank you, Strato." Zealot said as he pulled out a long knife and stabbed at the fake Eguid.

"But Nobody here HAS a weakness to MY 'strength'. So I guess I'm useless. Why did I get myself in this mess?! I'm useless! I'm only going to slow you guys down. THAT'S IT! IF I'M GOING TO DIE NOBODY SAVE ME! I'm the one that got into this mess and I don't deserve to be saved by anyone here!" Aeron exclaimed angrily spamming all sorts of magic everywhere. Healing, Strength, boosting, speed boosting, attack magic, you name it. He was spamming it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on October 25, 2013, 04:08:14 AM
Zealot looked back in shock. "You can heal people, Aeron? Good. Keep doing that!" He said as he bent over backwards to avoid the fake Zealot's attack.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 25, 2013, 05:56:53 AM
"Well yeah..If I couldn't I'd be dead already." Aeron stopped spamming magic and started  healing whoever needed healing. At least he wasn't useless now, but it still mad him sad, because that's all he could do. Heal. Fighting would get him dead. Aeron wished he were stronger. A wish that he would always wish until it was granted, by magic itself or by physical help. he wouldn't be able to get stronger by himself.

Post by: Halcyonic Legend on October 25, 2013, 10:16:38 AM
Serena disengaged the clone and fell back. She was trying to catch her breath.
"Whew... I didn't know I could give myself a run for my own money." She laughed to herself, as she hunched over with her hands on her knees.
"Well, I guess we should all pick different targets then."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on October 25, 2013, 10:41:00 PM
Strato smiled at Aeron. "I like this kid."

He used something he hadn't done in a while, and infused fire to everyone, buffing their attacks. "There, we get a little advantage now."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on October 25, 2013, 10:57:32 PM
Aeron dodged an attack from a clone. He didn't counter-attack because what good would that do EVEN with a slightly upped strength. Aeron wasn't going to waste this strength on attack things. He was going to use it to keep himself alive so he could keep others alive. Aeron rushed over and healed Serena making sure she was the right one. "Here ya go!" Aeron said as he rushed away to figure out differences of other clones, while ready to heal somebody at the same time.

Post by: Aether on October 27, 2013, 07:25:03 PM
Strato fought with his clone. Any advantage no matter how small is still an advantage, he used it. The fight is taking a while though, but he still has energy.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on October 27, 2013, 10:02:29 PM
"Strato! Which me!" Serena yelled.
She jumped into the fight with Strato, waiting for him to take her clone.

Fluently he spun and attacked the Serena clone. These alterations were tough, but Strato wasn't even tired yet. He slashed downward.

A loud rumble came from within. The clones scowled and revealed their true forms: Massive globules of white and black and red. They glided further within the Tower.

Eguid came running in, huffing and panting as though he just ran a hundred miles. "You...have to...realize: I'm...not...young!" Alcarius couldn't help but to smile,  but Amye's expression was distant. As though she sensed more danger.

Zealot  looked dissapointed. "I wanted to kill them." He said. "What's wrong, Aye?" He asked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 02, 2013, 03:54:57 AM
Amye shuddered and her eyes darkened slightly. Alcarius' face lost all its color. Eguid even looked taken aback.

"Am I not getting something here?" Zealot said, runnin his finger down his scythe's blade. "Am I supposed to be scared?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 02, 2013, 04:18:38 AM
Alcarius spun his sister around and said something quietly. The shadows faded from her eyes. "The darkness...it was...frightening..." Amye buried herself in her brothers arms. Alcarius looked at Zealot and nodded. "When we found Amye, she was possessed by a wicked spirit of shadows. To this day, she is susceptible to possession. She was getting possessed."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 02, 2013, 04:42:55 AM
"Hmmm.... Ha.... HA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!" Zealot burst out in a sinister sounding laugh. "I was feared because the people thought I was under demonic influence! Because they thought I was going to end the world! Well look at me now! Amye! You've made me a hero instead of a demon! I WILL NOT LET THE DARKNESS TAKE YOU! I PROMISE! EVEN IF I HAVE TO DIE! I WILL PROTECT YOU! THIS IS MY VOW!" Zealot screamed to Amye, the shadows, and the heavens above.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 02, 2013, 04:44:44 AM
Amye started tearing up. "You don't understand, Zealot," she cried. "I slaughtered twelve cities before I was found and powered down." She was crying hysterically now.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 02, 2013, 05:40:10 AM
"So?" He said as he whispered into her ear. "I acually gave them a reason for keeping me there after being locked up for so long. I killed half of them when... My eyes turned red.

 "I've controlled it for a very long time. I'll try to help you. But... You must let go of your guilt. If the darkness controls you, it's the one who did those things... You were but a tool... A weapon... Just like I was. I will keep you from going to those dark places. Trust me and calm yourself." Zealot smiled an honest smile, but behind it there was a hidden agony. "What if I have to... No! It will not come to that!" He thought.

"But it may... And I will be there if it does..." He heard in his head. "NO! I WON'T LET YOU! LEAVE HER ALONE!" He said aloud, even though nobody could hear the Other Voice.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 02, 2013, 12:44:21 PM
Alcarius understood what was going on with Zealot. He was a master of shadows, after all. "If my sister becomes a threat, I was the one who was charged with ridding this world of the threat by any means necessary. That's why I began to learn the dark arts: To dispel the demonic influences. You've seen an example of this."

Amye shuddered as she felt a malevolent presence heading right toward them...

Aeron was freaking out in his mind. 'How did I get myself into this mess? I'm not going to survive this at all!'

(Umm hey I thought Ivan woke up? maybe you skipped over that?)

Post by: Aether on November 02, 2013, 08:01:20 PM
Strato just stood and watched this drama. He could make a play about this, it would make a lot of money. He grinned and spoke to Aeron, noticing his panic. "Calm down, boy. You're here now and there's no turning back. Just go with it and keep moving forward. Don't think any of us could do this alone either, that's why we're together in the first place."

Post by: Tetsu on November 04, 2013, 02:40:24 AM
A man appeared out of the shadows. No features were clear, but he radiated pure chaos and malevolence. "Welcome to the tower," he said. "You've met a couple shadows of the Tower, but those were nothing compared to what you will face further within. Have fun! Bwahahahahahaha!" Then, he disappeared.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

"HEY. COME BACK HERE." Strato ran towards where he heard the voice, but soon found just a wall. "Where the heck did he go..."

Post by: Ivan Strider on November 04, 2013, 11:46:26 PM
Aeron sighed. The most he could do was heal people, but he guessed that he would be able to keep them alive because of that so Aeron guessed it was good enough.

Post by: Tetsu on November 06, 2013, 03:02:51 PM
The party continued to walk forward, the wicked laughter of the shadowy man constantly reverberating off the walls, giving the tower an eerie feeling.



The Eternal Guardian waited for Ivan to do something. He was not going to attack unless he was attacked.

Serena holstered her knives. 
"It'll be alright, Ayme. If you're ever in danger, I have power over light as well." She put up her hands, palms up. A orb of light appeared in her hands.
"I'll make sure that any forces of darkness are at least weakened." She smiled.

A flame danced around Strato's hand, causing a small illumination. He walked on, looking in every direction for the hidden enemy.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 07, 2013, 05:08:04 AM
Ivan readied himself still thinking of the dream. Maybe fighting the Eternal Guardian could be like fighting himself. He was going to have to try to do things that he never did before. Like maybe fighting while hungry. Ivan sighed. He hadn't eaten for a while, but with no food around he'd have to starve. Ivan calmed himself and then rushed toward the Eternal Guardian. WInging it was something Ivan would normally not do. He would devise multiple strategies to go from. But if he wanted to beat the Eternal Guardian, he may have to do things he wouldn't do. So instead of swinging his sword when he got close enough to the the Eternal Guardian, he jumped over it, landed, and shot fire at it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 07, 2013, 01:17:27 PM
The wicked laughter grew. Alcarius looked at Strato. "Strato, he's not here. He's projecting his voice," said Alcarius. "Amye, things have changed since we used to train here. We must exercise caut-DUCK!" He pushed Amye to the ground, but he, himself, was slammed by a massive, black manticore that was double the size of a regular one.



The Guardian recoiled slightly at the flame, but food appeared in front of him. "Eat. I wish not to fight a hungry foe," he said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 07, 2013, 04:22:29 PM
Zealot smiled. "Finally. I get to kill something!" He said as he ran towards the manticore.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Strato spun the faeblades like a bladed wheel and sped towards the beast.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 08, 2013, 03:46:42 AM
Ivan stared at the food. Was it real? It sure looked and smelt real...but could it be some sort of trick that the Eternal Guardian would pull to protect what lies beyond?

Aeron saw Alcarius get hit by the Manticore, he rushed over to him. "You okay!?" he asked as he healed Alcarius anyway.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 08, 2013, 04:40:03 AM
The manticore roared loudly, causing more to show up. Everybody seemed to forget that Eguid was there until now, when a massive power radiated from him. He seemed to grow young again as his energy radiated out, shocking everybody.

Alcarius smiled weakly at Aeron. "Thank you, friend," he said quietly. He proceeded to sleep, as was necessary, but Amye stood back up, standing over her brother...again.



The Eternal Guardian put down his sword and shield. He disarmed himself and took off his helmet to reveal a human face. This Guardian was a Giant. He reached down and picked up a turkey leg and ate it.

Ivan sighed. He was hungry so why not. What harm could it do? Ivan began to eat,
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 13, 2013, 02:43:50 PM
Amye was somehow holding off manticores, but her strength was quickly waning. Eguid was fighting off five different manticores, but his strength was also waning. "I need help!!!" screamed Amye.



The Guardian looked upon Ivan with a cocked head. "Why are you here? For what purpose do you wish to enter?" he asked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 13, 2013, 04:28:09 PM
Zealot ran and pulled a knife out of his boot and forced it into one of the manticore's eyes. He then started hacking at them to give Amye some space.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on November 14, 2013, 05:40:30 AM
Serena delayed the manticores, casting spark plasma around the group. When she finished, she pulled out her knives and used the winds speed to quickly strike at one of them.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 14, 2013, 06:59:57 AM
Aeron shot lightning at a Manticore to distract it. Big Mistake. The Manticore lunged straight for him and Aeron almost screamed his head off, but without think he suddenly dodged the Manticore, jumped up and over, doing multiple front flips with his sword sticking away from himself. His jump wasn't strong enough to help him get over the Manticore so Aeron's sword had dug into the manticore and caused Aeron to forcefully land.

Strato slashed at a few manticores, then jumped off of one and shot it while in midair. Fire sprung up from his hands, currently a small flare.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 19, 2013, 04:29:30 AM
More and more manticores appeared, bombarding the team. "There has to be a way to defeat them!" cried Amye.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 19, 2013, 07:24:31 AM
Sheesh. The Manticores everywhere. He was going to die. He prayed to the lord that he would be purified of his sin before he died.....wait..monsters are impure...and corrupted...LIGHTBULB! "PURIFICATION!!!" Aeron squealed happily, because he had thought up a great idea for once. The Manticore he was on shifted and Aeron almost fell to the ground, broke his back and neck, and died . Well maybe he was exaggerating.

Aeron hopped off the Manticore and focused his energy. A protective seal was set up around Aeron. Aeron closed his eyes. "Hey guys! You might wanna cover your eyes! I don't think you guys wanna be blind!" Aeron shouted. Aeron gathered his energy and lightning struck and wind whirled around the young boy. He hadn't successfully performed the monster purification process before, but he certainly had to try.

Manticores pounded against the seal, straining it. It wouldn't last long. The wind became more fierce and the lightning turned to deadlier beams of electricity. 'Come on! I have to get past the wind seal! I hope I don't preform it!' WHile the wind seal covered a wide area, it wasn't that damaging. There was a shattering sound. The manticores had broken the seal. Aeron sighed inside. 'this could be the end, but at least I tried.'

The electricity soon then became too bright to be called electricity. The wind around Ivan formed into a hemisphere and light encased it. Well it looked like light, but technically it was a 'spiritual cleanser'. The area grew to be extremely blinding.

Serena was part light, so she was able to take it.
She stared at Aeron curiously. "What are you trying to do??"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 20, 2013, 02:54:13 PM
Eguid nodded furiously. "Good, Aeron! Keep it up!" He jumped on this opportunity to copy the essence of Aeron's spell and blast Manticores left and right. Eventually, there was only one left, but it was massive and completely white. It was obviously the strongest. Eguid cursed as his purificiation attacks did nothing. "Aeron, I commend you on finding the weaknesses of the Manticores, but this one isn't corrupted. You may want to stand back." He added the last when he noticed Amye's eyes grew pitch-black. "With both the power of shadow and water, I shall reign supreme!" She said with a demonic voice.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 20, 2013, 04:10:49 PM
Zealot grabbed Amye. "What are you doing? I thought you had this under control." He said as he moved her away from the manticore's swooping claws.

"Come on! Stay with me, Amye!" Zealot said, trying to save her from her darkness.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 20, 2013, 05:47:40 PM
Amye shrugged out of Zealot's grasp and looked fiercely at the Manticore. She smirked wickedly. Everything grew cold and dark, ice forming on the floor and walls. The Manticore cried out in pain.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

"Stop!" Zealot said as he tried to bind her with a cord. "I will not let you go into the darkness!"

Post by: Tetsu on November 20, 2013, 06:28:49 PM
Amye spun around and looked angrily at Zealot. "Let. Go," she said menacingly. Then, her eyes lightened some. "I am trying to tap into the darkness's power while keeping myself. Please, trust me," she pleaded. Amye's eyes went dark again and slipped out of the cord. The party noticed that there was ice crawling up the Manticore's legs.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 20, 2013, 07:32:38 PM
"But... What if I lose you?" Zealot said as he released whatever hold he had on her. "Fine."

He ran toward the manticore. These "emotions" were just confusing him, so he went back to doing what he was supposedly born for: Chaos.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 20, 2013, 10:44:03 PM
A wall of ice appeared in front of Zealot. The demonic friend looked at Zealot and said, in a normal voice, "This is my fight." Alcarius placed a hand on Zealot's shoulder. "I've been teaching her to control her inner shadows," he said. "Don't worry, she'll be fine." By now, the manticore was fully encased in ice. Amye ran forward with her legendary blade and began to slash.

"It's trying to kill an innocent! If the ice weren't here, I'd let the Storm out upon that thing! It! Is! Evil." Zealot said in a blind rage.

Post by: Ivan Strider on November 21, 2013, 06:05:20 AM
Aeron laid a hand on Zealot's shoulder, trying to calm him. "It's okay. I was only asking a question. There's no need to rage. Also I'm sure Ayme will be all right."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 21, 2013, 02:55:24 PM
With a demonic cry, the ice shattered, along with the Manticore. "There, now you all may pass," she said with a slightly demonic voice. Her eyes grew back to normal and she fainted. Alcarius ran over to her and picked her up. "Wow, I guess it's finally my turn to stand guard over her," he said with a smile.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 21, 2013, 04:37:42 PM
Zealot for once did not run to her. He was afraid to show emo+ion to her because it could stress her out even more. He did not want to hurt her, but he believed that was all he could do, so he stayed back.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on November 21, 2013, 06:17:33 PM

Serena walked over to Alcarius. "Does she need any light? That was an awful lot of darkness..." Maybe it was the ice, but the darkness made her shiver.

Alcarius waved everybody away. "Please, stand back, all of you," he said. "There is an excess of leftover shadow energy, so I must syphon it. Zealot, if you'd be so kind as to help, I may need it. If I begin to become as she did, please knock me out."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 22, 2013, 06:02:26 AM
"I'll try not to shed blood." Zealot said as he looked at Amye's face. How could someone so gentle, so wonderful, so beautiful got through this awful thing? His thoughts never wandered from how unfair it was.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 22, 2013, 06:05:38 AM
Alcarius closed his eyes and began to chant something in some odd language. A massive sphere of shadows encased Zealot, Amye, and Alcarius. Tendrils of inky blackness traveled up, toward Alcarius and burrowing themselves in him. He groaned in agony, but kept on. For his sister. "Wow, that's more than I anticipated," he said with his teeth gritted.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 22, 2013, 07:07:56 AM
Aeron sighed. He was worried. He barely even knew them, but he felt he needed to do something to help poor Ayme, but what could he do?
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 22, 2013, 02:41:28 PM
The sphere disappeared and Alcarius' eyes were pure black and his skin took on a smoky gray tint. He was still whimpering with pain, but the black and gray began to disappear.

Eguid looked at brother and sister in pure shock and disbelief. "Two who are this close? This is most impressive."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Post by: Tetsu on November 24, 2013, 05:15:16 PM
Alcarius chuckled and shook his head. "Zealot," he said. "I'm not dead. I do, however, have a very important favor to ask of you. I need you to watch over my sister until I recover. Can you do this for me? She trusts you even more than she trusts me, so it'd only be fitting."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 24, 2013, 09:33:44 PM
"YES!" Zealot said loudly. "I, uh, mean... Sure..." His face was red, is this the "Love" Brian told him he'd find? The reward for those who follow the Good Path? Zealot hoped so.

Post by: Tetsu on November 25, 2013, 12:04:01 AM
Alcaruis, using the staff of Eguid, walked weakly to Zealot and put a hand on his shoulder. "I approve of your feelings for my sister, but know this: If you even slightly harm her, I shall rip your head off," he whispered. "You've seen the shadows that Amye can produce. Mine are doubly dangerous and I can control mine." He smiled and walked back to Eguid, leaving Zealot to ponder his words.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Aeron quickly butted in. "Eheh. Sorry to interrupt, but since we're in such a dangerous place, you guys must have some important mission. Why don't we quit talking and move along or talk WHILE we move along 'kay? Okay! Let's go!" Aeron said as he waited for somebody to start moving so he wouldn't have to go head first into what was going to happen. He ran out magic. That purifying spell took all of what he had left. "oh and uh..." Aeron hesitated. Should he tell them? Well might as well so they don't get angry at him later. "And...uh..I kinda have no more magic left to use...I used it all on that purifying spell...so..I hope you have another healer...cause I can't heal people anymore...." Aeron ducked down and put himself into fetal position, expecting somebody to either explode or get mad in some way.

Eguid laughed merrily. "No, my boy, you have not," he said. "Come here. It is important that we rest before plunging further within."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 25, 2013, 04:47:37 AM
Zealot put a hand on Aeron's shoulder. "It's OK, nobody's perfect. But if you ever suggest we move Amye when she's in this state again, You'll die. I'll kill you. It is bad for her to be moved right now." Zealot let out a light chuckle. "OK? I knew you would be. You've such promise."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 25, 2013, 06:10:00 AM
Aeron was confused. "You knew I'd be what?" Aeron asked as he got out of fetal position. "Also truthfully I am out of magic! Unlike most people, my magic is actually limited. I've been trying to find a way to make it so where it's not so limited. I realized it one day when I was practicing. All of a sudden my magic wouldn't be casted anymore, it's like I had reached a maximum and something was capping it off. I don't know what happened, but I realized I had to conserve my magic. It restores if I est though. Speaking of rest that sounds like a good i-" Aeron fell to the floor.

"Oh. Ouch."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 25, 2013, 02:41:04 PM
Eguid offered his hand. "Your magic is only limited by your mind, so it can be a fickle thing. One is never out of magic," he said. He resumed his elderly form. "You can be exhausted by overuse, but you never truly run out of magic. Give me your hand, young one."

Alcarius looked upon Zealot inquisitively, his face expressionless but the wheels in his mind turning on overdrive.

"Yes, Aeron," said Eguid urgently. "Now cast aside all doubts! Quickly now!" Then, that's when a figure clad in all black armor appeared. It had red slits for eyes, glowing from deep within the helm. A demonic voice boomed, echoing off the walls.

"There is no rest for the weary," it said. Then, it blasted a beam of darkness at Aeron and one at Eguid. Alcarius saw this and threw himself in front of the beams. He took the hit full-on, but strangely, it seemed to heal him.

He spoke with a slight edge to his voice. He said two simple words: "Darkness begone!" Then, a massive pulse of inky blackness mixed with blinding light barreling toward the armored creature, but it did no good.

"Agh! We almost died there!" Aeron gasped. "Well then. If we can't rest that means you can't kill us. Dying is a form of rest you know! A horrible form, but still. You aren't going to beat us down! Time to get serious! Let's do this!" Aeron sat down and began to meditate. 'I know what I'm doing. I just have to believe that it will work!"

Zealot ran at the being with his scythe, laughing. "HaHaHaHaHaHaHa! I'm going to make you feel every drop of blood leave you body before I allow you the sweetest embrace! I'm going to kill you only once I've taken everything from you!" He said with a raging laugh and a slasher smile. His eyes were red.

Zealot ran at the being with his scythe, laughing. "H4H4H4H4H4H4H4H4! I'm going to make you feel every drop of blood leave you body before I allow you the sweetest embrace! I'm going to kill you only once I've taken everything from you!" He said with a raging laugh and a slasher smile. His eyes were red.

Strato got up and took out his bow. He carefully chose the arrow he was looking for and placed it on the string.

Amye stirred slightly. "Unnnnngh..." was all that could be heard from her.

The living armor looked at Zealot and growled. It summoned a dual-ended scythe and easily countered Zealot's attacks and had one side open for a quick slice at him.

Alcarius's eyes took on a blackened color. "I said: BEGONE!" he shouted, sending another wave of the darkest light (or the brightest shadow) at the thing.

Aeron was trying to focus his energy. He began to slowly left from the ground. 'Come on! You can do it Aeron! You are full of surprises remember?'
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 27, 2013, 07:17:54 AM
"HA! That would have killed a lesser being, but I am stronger than you! I am the prince of the shadows! I will destroy you!" Zealot said with venom in his voice.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 27, 2013, 02:50:28 PM
A laugh resounded from within the armor as another dual-ended scythe appeared along with two additional arms. "I adapt to the battle," it said simply as it rushed Zealot with four scythe blades. Amye looked on in horror, wanting to get up to help, but not being able to do anything.

The armor saw Alcarius's blast coming and bounced it at Zealot, following with a swift kick at the back of Zealot's legs. Eguid leapt in, but was batted aside by the scythes.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Zealot fell, but rolled out of the way and tried to cut it from the back.

Post by: Ivan Strider on November 28, 2013, 07:45:22 AM
'Hopefully I did this correctly.....only one way to find out.' Aeron opened his eyes. They were blank and glossed over. "..." Aeron sat there in mid air. He was still for sometime before speaking. "Death comes to those who are careless in battle. Eternal slumber comes to those who think of themselves higher than one. Never ending darkness awaits those who dare try to exceed a god. NOW PERISH!" nothing happened...or so it seemed...

(I really have no idea what I'm doing right now. Do whatever with what Aeron just did...my creativeness has dropped low. I'm resorting to word vomit for now.)
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 01:33:39 AM
Nothing appeared to happen, but for some reason, Eguid looked proud. "That's right, Aeron!" The armor staggered back, its weapons and extra arms disappearing, leaving an opening for an attack.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 02:48:10 AM
Zealot ran to try to kill the ghastly armor. His scythe poised to end its life.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 03:31:38 AM
The attack landed, but the armor lived. It laughed wickedly. "Bwahahaha! You thought you could kill-" It was quickly silenced with a powerful beam attack from both Alcarius and Eguid. Aeron's magic ensured that the thing would stay still and not move.

Amye got to her feet. She wobbled over to Zealot. She looked at the remains of the armor. "I-I'm sorry I couldn't help you," she said guiltily. "A-and I'm sorry you had to see me in my shadows."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 03:38:14 AM
The purple returned to Zealot's eyes. "I'm so sorry I couldn't protect you... I failed you..." He knelt. "Forgive me. I am unworthy of your kindness." He said to Amye.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 03:40:39 AM
Amye stood him up. "I swear upon all that is holy AND unholy that the next time you kneel to me without a ring in your hand, I will decapitate you with my hand mirror," she said in good humor. "Got it?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 04:13:58 AM
"Why would I need a ring? What does a ring mean? I don't know what rings have to do with penance." Zealot said, puzzled by Amye's answer. " And how can you behead someone with a mirror?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 04:16:41 AM
Amye's jaw dropped. She snapped it back shut. She was sure he knew what that meant, but she sighed and just said "Oh...I'll explain it later. Oh, and for the mirror, it'd be VERY painful for you." She winked at him and Alcarius smiled at the byplay.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 05:03:05 AM
"Amye. I have a few questions. Is it true women have different private parts? Why do you have those things on your pectorals? Are they for cushioning? What are panties? Or underwear for that matter? I -- Are you blushing? Why? What is the ring for? Do you want one? I have my mother's ring, it's the only thing I have of her but..." Zealot knelt. "I want you to have this ring."

Post by: Ivan Strider on November 29, 2013, 05:49:02 AM
"Does he really know what he's doing?" Aeron leaned to the side an whispered into Eguid's ear. "Because it seems like he's clueless as to what a marriage proposal is."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 02:53:32 PM
Amye was astounded by the questions Zealot was asking. "I...er...let's talk about that in private...I mean, where others cannot hear us," she stammered. "These kinds of questions are a little personal, you know?" Alcarius laughed merrily.

"No," said Eguid. "He does not know what a marriage proposal is, but I get the feeling he shall soon learn."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 05:36:43 PM
"Then will you at least take my mother's ring? I want you to have it. I'm propositioning you." Zealot said with a smile.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 06:47:45 PM
Eguid looked mildly surprised, but Alcarius was beaming. Amye was blushing furiously as she wordlessly nodded, tears of joy rolling down her cheek.

Eguid's head snapped toward the inner area of the tower. He hearda faint clanging sound, like blade against blade.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on November 29, 2013, 06:52:02 PM
Strato was grinning at Zealot's cluelessness. But when he heard the metal on metal, he crouched down and walked to the source.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 29, 2013, 06:54:15 PM
Eguid followe Strato and what they saw astounded him. They saw a lone swordsman battling ten of the living armors.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on November 29, 2013, 06:57:03 PM
Strato, still not wanting to be seen, set up 5 arrows and placed them side by side on the string.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 29, 2013, 09:33:29 PM
Aeron sat down to Meditate again. "Come on!" he said as he began what to repeat he did before, this time a bit quicker though.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 29, 2013, 11:22:03 PM
Zealot stood up and ran toward the sound, leaving Amye standing there. Not a good sign of what kind of husband he'd be.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 30, 2013, 03:27:32 AM
Amye followed suit and Eguid cloaked them all by bending the light around the group. Between strikes and blocks, the swordsman said "Didn't think I'd have an audience in this fight."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 30, 2013, 05:04:55 AM
"Is that how you address the man who is going to end your life, you vile dastard?" Zealot said scornfully.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 30, 2013, 05:59:53 AM
"No, that's how I shall address the man that I'm actually saving, unless you'd rather fight all these Armors yourself," he said casually.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on November 30, 2013, 06:41:04 AM
"Yes. I'd rather fight and die than owe you my life." Zealot said with disdain.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on November 30, 2013, 01:52:37 PM
The man grunted. "Mind if I help? I'm kinda having fun."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on November 30, 2013, 07:54:12 PM
Strato released the arrows, each hitting an armor. It stuck in there for a few seconds and then detonated in a fiery explosion.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 01, 2013, 12:36:20 AM
Amye threw a dagger at one of the armors and then stabbed another through the chest with her blade. Alcarius summoned up a huge sphere of inky blackness and threw it at the armors. Eguid bashed one upside the head with his staff. The mysterious swordsman parried attacks from five armors and swiftly beheaded one of the armors and gutted a second.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 01, 2013, 02:40:01 AM
Zealot made a false swing at an armor with his scythe and he buried his knife in its eye slit.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 01, 2013, 02:59:38 AM
Each armor was defeated quickly with the help of the mysterious swordsman. He sighed and cracked his neck. "Well, that was fun, but it's over, I guess." He didn't seem too happy about that.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 01, 2013, 04:10:52 AM
"Speak or fight." Zealot said to him, unsure if he could trust this man.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 01, 2013, 04:30:17 AM
Strato lowered his bow, but kept it ready. "Who are you, how did you get here, and why did you come here?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 01, 2013, 04:32:27 AM
The man looked upon them in indifference, but Eguid looked upon the man with a twinkle of recognition in his eye. "Ask the old man," he said gruffly. "Maybe he can tell ya."

Eguid jumped at the opportunity. "This man is the legendary Warrior of the Rising Sun!" he cried out in giddy excitement. "Drelys is his name!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 01, 2013, 05:17:34 AM
"He appears to save us, shows of some fancy sword skill, and looks like some hero. That doesn't mean he's not a demon in disguise." Zealot said, poising his thowing knife in his hand.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 01, 2013, 05:59:33 AM
Aeron stepped in the way. "HEY! STOP IT! Nobody would save somebody's life just to end it themselves! Be reasonable! Besides, I know a good person when I see one. My judgement has never been wrong before. If you're going to kill him, you'll have to kill me first!" Aeron had his arms and legs spread out.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 01, 2013, 03:13:13 PM
Strato put his bow back. "Well, suns are good right? I'll trust you. But you never answered how and why you came here."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 01, 2013, 04:01:09 PM
"How I came here was how you came here: I walked," he said gruffly. "As for why I'm here, my king sent me here to aid a group of wandering heroes, but I'm now wondering if that was a mistake." He looked sharply at Zealot. "Listen here, sonny, I've been swingin' this sword around since before your parents even met. I'm a lot older than I look. Living in the Solar Kingdom does that for ya."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 01, 2013, 04:29:22 PM
Aeron turned around. "So you live in like a place where there is something that can preserve your age? That's kinda cool...but I don't think I could handle living a long time."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 01, 2013, 09:35:59 PM
Strato grinned. "Group of wandering heroes? Unless there are others, we're probably the ones you're looking for."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 02, 2013, 12:47:54 AM
Drelys looked at Aeron. "What is your name, young one?" he said. Then, he looked at Strato. "I'm not sure. Your group was quite hostile toward me. Well, one member was." Then, he looked at Zealot. "You intrigue me," he said simply.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 02, 2013, 01:13:48 AM
Aeron smiled. "Me? I'm Aeron! I just so happened to stumble upon this group while running away from monsters...since I didn't know where home was I decided to join them. There may be stronger monsters here, but at least I have help so I don't feel as vulnerable."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 02, 2013, 01:17:09 AM
"And you, me, sir." Zealot said with venom in his voice. "But that does not mean I trust you. I will, most likely, never trust you, but maybe you will prove yourself to me." He said with less venom this time.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 02, 2013, 01:56:32 AM
Drelys held his hand out toward Zealot. "I don't trust you either, but I'm sure that'll change soon enough," he said.  "I currently mean you no ill will." He looked back at Aeron. "I sense untapped potential within you," he said. "We could use one such as yourself in the Solar Kingdom, where you'll learn from the finest magician I know. Are you interested?"

"How old is this Solar Kingdom you speak of?" Serena was thoroughly interested.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 02, 2013, 02:37:46 PM
"As old as time itself," said Drelys. "It has been around since the beginning of existence with a single village that grew into a massive kingdom."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Post by: Tetsu on December 03, 2013, 02:33:01 PM
"All of you are welcome if, and only if, you prove your worth," said Drelys. Eguid nodded and Alcarius walked over to Amye. "Are you okay?" he said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 04, 2013, 06:08:49 AM
"Really? I'd love to learn from the most powerful. They would know so much and I could learn so much too! I wouldn't be weak and unable to fully defend myself. It may be hard, but I'm willing to give my best and help!" Aeron was all hyped up. "We can do whatever it was that we are doing!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 04, 2013, 12:32:13 PM
"Well then we better get to doing it faster, eh?" Strato started walking on to wherever.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 04, 2013, 02:28:04 PM
Drelys nodded and began to walk forward, leading the group to where they need to go. "The Solar Kingdom built this tower to seal away the primary force of Chaos many ages ago, but as you can see, the forces of darkness have taken over."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 04, 2013, 03:57:40 PM
Serena cocked her head. "If they built this, shouldn't they do something about all this?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 04, 2013, 05:21:07 PM
Drelys nodded. "That's why I'm here," he said. "Unfortunately, we've not got the manpower to keep a close eye on this place as we are in an intense war with the Lunar Empire, our rivals and enemies."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 04, 2013, 06:06:45 PM
"Dare I ask, but why are you enemies with this 'Lunar Empire'?" Strato questioned
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 04, 2013, 09:59:21 PM
Drelys turned sharply and faced Strato. "Let's put it this way:" he began. "If it weren't for us stopping them, the Lunar Empire would have covered this world in an eternal shadow."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 04, 2013, 10:44:05 PM
"A form of order. Who to say you're not the ones in the wrong? Darkess is under-rated." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 05, 2013, 01:34:40 AM
Drelys's eyes narrowed. "The proper balance of light and shadow is essential for life to exist! Think of your plants, your trees, your vegetables! Without them, no life would exist for they are the fundamentals of nature!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

"Whatever you say, hero." Zealot said with a smirk.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 05, 2013, 02:40:47 AM
Drelys smirked, a look that sent chills down the spine of Eguid, Amye, and Alcarius. "Tell me, sonny boy, do you know much about the history of this world?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 05, 2013, 02:47:01 AM
"No. I'm... Not from here. I'm from from another world. I was taken through a void and landed here. Everywhere I told you about is from another world." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 05, 2013, 02:51:35 AM
Drelys nodded understandingly. "Ah, so that would explain it," he said. "The rules of this world may be different from where you reside. Here, light is very much necessary for growth of plants and, without plants, life here would cease to exist."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 05, 2013, 02:55:17 AM
"Sorta the same problem as Zealot, though I figured it was universal knowledge of plants needin' light," Strato said as he walked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Drelys grunted. "Ahead is the first challenge of the Tower: The Desert Duels."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

Zealot smirked. "Some things thrive in the darkness." He said, glad to see a battle ahead.

Post by: Tetsu on December 05, 2013, 03:17:14 AM
Drelys considered Zealot's statement. "Aye, they do," he conceded. "Is everyone ready for this first challenge?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 05, 2013, 04:33:04 AM
"Born ready!" Zealot said with a smile on his face. He thought back to his home. He was torn between all he left behind and the woman he loved.

Post by: Ivan Strider on December 05, 2013, 04:40:30 AM
"I'm guessing there could be quicksand? In that case I'm ready! In any other case I'm still ready! All this time I've lived here in this world and yet I never knew about the Solar and Lunar Kingdom." Aeron chirped up.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ivan finished eating. "Thanks. I haven't eaten like this in a while. I feel much better. You seem like a nice guy! I'm sure your true name isn't 'Eternal Guardian'. Would you mind telling me your real name? Unless you really DO have such a boring name."

Post by: Tetsu on December 05, 2013, 03:39:17 PM
The group walked forward into a portal where they were placed in an expansive desert with blistering hot sands and the hot sun beating down upon them. Drelys looked at the group. "Beware of--" Here, he slashed behind him at a scorpion. "Scorpions. They are not fun. Their venom is incurable and will make you die a slow and painful death."



The Guardian looked at him. "I was originally known as 'Drelovariousarkondolok.'"

Post by: Aether on December 05, 2013, 08:31:59 PM
Thinking that they're just your basic scorpions, Strato shot a hail of arrows around. Unless these were super defensive, his arrows should be able to penetrate their skin
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 06, 2013, 04:31:01 AM
The scorpions all fell to Strato's arrows and Drelys's blade. "Nice work, archer," said Drelys. The sands began to subtly shift...

Post by: Ivan Strider on December 06, 2013, 06:19:57 AM
Aeron smiled weakly. "No quicksand? and I was so ready for it. It just seems like something huge is buried beneath...and coming up to the surface..." Aeron gulped.

-----------------------

"What an interestingly not boring name that I can't even remember. No wonder you're called the Eternal Guardian. but...I do wonder, what's the point of Being a Guardian when you don't know what you are guarding?"

"I can already tell this isn't going to be fun..."
Serena pulled out her twin knives, ready to strike at a moments notice.
She looked at Zealot spinning his scythe. "Show off!" She yelled with a smirk.

Post by: Tetsu on December 06, 2013, 04:07:54 PM
An army of giant arachnids appeared before the party. Even Drelys was taken aback. "Guys, be on your guard and fight hard and well," he said. Eguid gulped. Amye got closer to Zealot and Alcarius just readied himself for battle.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 06, 2013, 04:14:05 PM
Holly recoiled. "Eww. I hate spiders." She said with the droopiest face.
She held out her palm and cast a constant Destruct Ray to keep them at bay.
"So... Any ideas?" She asked the group.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 06, 2013, 04:27:30 PM
Drelys rushed forward shouting the following: "Yeah, two words! Don't! Die!" In a flurry of flashing blades, spiders and scorpions fell left and right. Alcarius tapped into his shadows and unleashed a form of himself that hasn't been seen in a decade.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 06, 2013, 04:49:23 PM
Zealot kiseed Amye and then ran off to fight. He decided it would be more fun to kill the scorpions, cut their tails off, and impale the spiders with them.

Aeron weaved in and out of the arachnids. Arachnids were usually killed easily by being squashed. Using this logic Aeron used his magic to summon large rocks to crush the Arachnids. (which Scorpions are also claimed as an Arachnid). Unfortunately summoning two was enough to leave him like he was when he was being chased by monsters, except, just more worn out. Aeron's speed was lowered some.

Amye ran after Zealot. "Zealot, I'm going to have to re-enter my dark form," she said. "Otherwise, I'll end up dying if I fight."

Alcarius blasted several arachnids with powerful bursts of shadows. "D*mn creepy crawlies..." he muttered.

Eguid knocked a spider upside the head with his staff and blew another up with a light pulse. He then walked over to Aeron and gave him an amulet. "This is the Amulet of Karalosos," he said. "It takes your will, duplicates it and turns the duplicate into energy which you can tap into. My gift to you."

Drelys just kept tearing them apart with his swords. The arachnids just kept coming!

"No, Amye. I forbid it. Stay out of the battle if you cannot fight. Do not sacrifice yourself." Zealot said with a stern face that hid his fear of losing Amye.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 07, 2013, 09:38:43 AM
Serena ran over to Zealot and conked him in the head. "Moron, you can't tell her you" forbid" something. If she thinks she needs to do it, she's gonna do it." She looked at Ayme. "I can control light, Ayme. Can I help in some way?" She asked as she cast spark plasma.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 07, 2013, 09:56:36 AM
"Thanks!" Aeron replied. He took the amulate.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 07, 2013, 03:58:57 PM
Amye smiled at Zealot. "I refuse to slow you guys down," she said. "Lately, I"ve gained control of my shadows. Please, trust me." She turned to Holly. "If I end up turning on the rest of the gang, blast me with light. Yeah, it'll hurt me, but it'll counteract the shadows. Unless you know how to funnel shadows out of a person."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 07, 2013, 09:13:27 PM
"If you promise me you will be OK. Do what you think you need to." Zealot said with a smile. He then turned to Serena. "If you ever strike me again, I'll strike you, and I will strike to kill."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 07, 2013, 10:04:03 PM
(Who's Holly? :P)

Amye nodded and a dar aura enveloped her. She became her darkness and blasted scorpions with a rain of shadows.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 08, 2013, 12:58:48 AM
(I confused Legend's character with another of his.)


Zealot smiled at the chance to fight along side his love.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 08, 2013, 02:20:12 AM
(I'm giving you a hard time. :P)

Amye gave Zealot a quick kiss on the cheek and began to, quite literally, tear scorpions apart and smash spiders with the scorpion halves before throwing them at other arachnids.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 08, 2013, 02:33:14 AM
Zealot was impressed. He decided to just cut the legs off of a spider and impale other with them.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 08, 2013, 02:47:32 AM
Drelys was shredding arachnids and so was Amye. Alcarius was stunned with the ferocity of Amye's attacks.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 08, 2013, 04:19:28 AM
Strato was spinning and slashing with his faeblades, his eyes glowing bright. He manipulated the wind to lift himself up with the sand and began shooting arrows at the arachnids
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 08, 2013, 05:19:59 AM
Amye continued to shred and maul and demolish the arachnids and the party noticed that the army was dying down.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 08, 2013, 06:41:39 AM
Serena moved with the wind and slashed under every spider as she sprinted. She created a whirlwind to jump herself into the air and on top of a spider. Jamming her knives into the beast's back, she made it ram into another spider right next to that one. Creating another whirlwind, she flew into the air, and cast spar plasma on the two spiders below, cooking them.

While doing this, Serena contemplated on how to funnel excess darkness outside of somebody. She knew Holly could, but without her here...
Serena landed on the ground. Observing her work on the spiders. She gave a quick half smile before continuing on to the next one.

Post by: Ivan Strider on December 08, 2013, 09:46:19 AM
Aeron grew serious. "It's time to finish this!" Aeron put his lips to the amulet. The air around him swirled. He felt his spirit doubling. An aura seemed to glow from him. He looked up and the held his sword into the air, summoning lightning to strike down on the beasts. "DESOLATION!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 08, 2013, 03:20:13 PM
"Yes, Aeron!" called Eguid who was fending off five of the creepy crawlies. "That's how you do it!" With Aeron's naming of the spell, rain drops of light fell upon the battlefield, only hitting the arachnids and completely wiping them out. Drelys looked at him. "You realize you just took down half an army with that one attack, right?" he asked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 08, 2013, 05:57:07 PM
"What'd you do that for, kid? I was having a blast!" Zealot said as he put his scythe away.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 08, 2013, 07:33:02 PM
Serena landed next to the group. She looked at the ground, still contemplating about the darkness. "I wonder..." She said to herself. She looked up to Ayme.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 08, 2013, 08:11:35 PM
Shadowy Amye tuned and looked fiercelty at Aeron. Her face softened. "Good job, " she said simply.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 08, 2013, 11:34:46 PM
Zealot looked at Amye. "You have never loked as beautiful as you did when you were fighting. You also looked odd... I don't know what I'm feeling, but it's some sort of attraction.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 09, 2013, 02:00:00 AM
Amye started blushing. "Thanks, Zealot!" she said. "You didn't look too bad yourself!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 09, 2013, 06:13:08 AM
Zealot smiled. "Now if only we could find more things to fight!" He said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 09, 2013, 06:18:22 AM
Drelys overheard that last part. "Yeah, we're in the Tower of Balance, so that shouldn't be too hard. Keep on your guard."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 09, 2013, 06:22:35 AM
"My guard?" Zealot said. "I'll be counting the minutes. This is what was promised to be in the afterlife by the monks kept me prisoner! This is paradise!" He said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 09, 2013, 06:26:06 AM
The sands began to shift again. "Welp, yer wish's been granted, Zealot," said Drelys. Amye rolled her eyes and readied herself for another fight.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 09, 2013, 07:47:02 AM
"Isn't this the best Amye? I want to live and die like this! Always fighting and taking some time to remind eqach other how much we love the other!" Zealot said, spinning his scythe.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 09, 2013, 10:42:32 AM
Aeron was dizzy with realization. "I just did that?" Aeron then sighed. "Now I know I can protect myself with magic and be mentally strong, but...my dream was to be physically strong...was it just not meant to be? Is this who I truly am?" Aeron looked kinda down. How would you feel if your dreams were crushed?

"Dreams are liesone feeds himself to deal with dark times." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 09, 2013, 08:22:12 PM
Strato looked at Aeron. "You could always just take some more o' Zealot's training, buff you up. But if you're naturally gifted in the arcane arts, make sure to use it."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 09, 2013, 08:35:40 PM
Aeron rubbed the back of his head. "Heh, I guess. I'm sure you've had your own dream before Zealot."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 09, 2013, 10:14:58 PM
"No. I don't lie to myself. My only 'dream' is to die in battle, and that's a goal that is attainable." Zealot said. "I will train you when we are not fighting, but only if you put everything you have into it."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 09, 2013, 10:50:06 PM
Strato nodded. "There you go. If you truly wish to become more powerful, you'll probably feel more pain than all the pain you've ever felt before."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 04:26:30 AM
Drelys nodded. "If you train under me, you get the same quality training, but probably not quite as comfy."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 10, 2013, 06:05:42 AM
Aeron sighed. "I've never really been comfy. My dad used to train me till I could die from the loss of blood, then he would stop and make sure I was nursed back to health. It was hard, but I learned that people out there can be cruel."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 07:17:41 AM
"I would push you even harder," said Drelys. "The very first lesson is learning how to take a beating. It's to make sure pain's never a hindrance."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 10, 2013, 07:21:57 AM
"You see, I'd just beat you within an inch of Lord Death and leave you alone in the wilderness to see how you survive. That was how I was trained." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 07:26:38 AM
"Sounds like what our second-years go through," said Drelys.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 10, 2013, 07:35:49 AM
"I was but five when Brian did that to me. But I refuse to think it was cruel, it made me pwerful, which is all that matters in one's training." Zealot said proudly.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 10, 2013, 08:11:45 AM
"Heh. I got here, because my dad ditched me because my lesson was how to survive. I didn't do a very good job of it." Aeron sighed. Come on. We're wasting time.

"Are we all sharing sob stories now?" Serena asked.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 02:49:45 PM
Drelys shook his head. "No, we're just waiting for the Guardian of Shifting Sands."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 10, 2013, 06:44:49 PM
"How is mine a sob story? That was one of the greatest moments of my life!" Zealot said.

"Now let the guardian come." He said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 08:35:46 PM
A statue popped it head up out of the sand and it came up out of the ground. It stood at about 160 feet tall. It was some sort of strange desert creature. "I am the Guardian Statue of Shifting Sands. In order to progress, you must defeat me," it said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 10, 2013, 08:44:38 PM
Strato knew he didn't have any ice covered arrows, so he went for the next best thing, he took out moar bomb arrows and pewpewed away at the statue
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 09:00:48 PM
The bomb arrows had little effect on the statue. "Ah, straight to the point, are we?" it said. "Here, here's mine!" A blade of solid sand hurled itself at Strato at a very high speed.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 10, 2013, 09:15:05 PM
Strato cursed under his breath and sidestepped to the right, but the blade tore his cloak and left a gash in his left arm.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 10, 2013, 09:22:52 PM
The ground quaked as the statue took two steps toward Strato, but was blasted by Amye's shadow blast.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 11, 2013, 12:10:26 AM
Serena followed up with a blast of light energy.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 11, 2013, 12:55:59 AM
Zealot ran behind the thing, jumped, and stabbed it in the back with his knife. Not to kill it, but to climb it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 11, 2013, 04:04:11 AM
The statue reached toward its back and took the blast head on. He fell...right onto his back, where Zealot was. Drelys kept firing his own light blasts as Alcarius and Amye shot beams of shadow.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 11, 2013, 06:51:26 AM
"MOTHER--" Zealot jumped off right before he was killed and started to attack the statue's eyes.

Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 11, 2013, 03:03:03 PM
Serena grabbed her twin knives. She ran up to the beast while it was down, and jumped on it's stomach. She lit the knives with light energy and fused the knives together, creating her sword, Joyeuse. Using her full might, she attempted to pierce it's chest with the sword.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 11, 2013, 03:59:21 PM
Tendrils of sand grabbed at Serena and Zealot and a mighty roar sent them flying, the tendrils attempting to capture the two fighters.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 11, 2013, 04:59:47 PM
"****!" She yelled as she flew through the air. She created a whirlwind around her to catch her from falling, while also that dissipated the sand around her. As she levitated in the air, she defused the sword into her knives.
"Hmph. Fine." She sheathed her knives, and held up her hand.
"You know what happens when lightning hits sand?" She yelled.
"Spark plasma!" She yelled as she cast her magic.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 11, 2013, 06:15:10 PM
Zealot hit the ground rolling to avoid most of the pain. "Amye! Serena! Look out! Cut them off now!" He said, cutting the tentacle closest to him.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 11, 2013, 08:49:39 PM

Strato took off the string and separated the bow, revealing twin blades. He charged in, jumped, and stabbed the beast.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 11, 2013, 11:48:22 PM
"He's the Guardian of sands..Sand...I KNOW!" not exactly sure his logic works, He put all his might into trying to use water magic. All he got out of it was rain. "Well that was disappointing...and boring. Such boring weather. Let's make it a storm!" Aeron said gleefully as this was his specialty. Making rain turn into an actual storm. Lightning began to strike down and thunder boomed. "Haha! See how you react to my lightning! May the weapon of from the heavens strike you down!"

Aeron made himself levitate so the sand wouldn't effect him unless it actually came up into the air and grabbed him.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 12, 2013, 07:10:10 AM
Serena looked up at Aeron.
"Ahh. It seems the weather calls for a tornado!" She said jokingly.
She controlled the wind so that she could levitate, and she began to create a windy vortex around the beast, attempting to rip it apart in the strong winds.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 13, 2013, 03:28:42 AM
Strato looked at the storm brewing. "Well, guess I might as well add in." He put his hand on the ground, and released searing heat on the sand below the statue, turning it into glass. He then used his power of the winds to move the storm in circles around the beast.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 13, 2013, 04:57:16 AM
The rain actually helped the beast as it solidified the area around it, making its attacks more potent. Hands of mud reached for everybody.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 13, 2013, 06:06:13 AM
"HA! NOT SO FAST!" Aeron stopped the rain and took the emblem and put his lips to it. this time the ground softened up and became soil. Vines began to grow and shot toward the muddied beast. The vines also grew thicker and more sand became soil and more vines sprouted up and shot toward the creature and they also became thicker over short periods of time. "WOAH WHAT?! I never knew I could do this!" Aeron remarked, surprised."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 13, 2013, 06:16:30 AM
Zealot tossed his ruined coat aside, letting his bleeding chest show. He ran towards the mud statue and blasted it with a not, sharp wind gust that would bake normal mud to a brick.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 14, 2013, 06:54:54 AM
The ground opened up from under Zealot, but the vines created a safe bridge for Zealot to get across, but the Guardian wasn't done yet. The statue hardened, but it was a bad idea to harden it as it retained mobility. "I am complete!" it shouted.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 14, 2013, 01:08:57 PM
Strato started using short wind slashes to slowly carve into the beast
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 15, 2013, 04:19:39 AM
Aeron twirled around. "You may be complete, but you have become heavy. The sands are hard to walk on you know, even more so when you aren't as light as the sand. Your fatal flaw. It will be so hard to move into the sand that you won't be able to do somethings, and you are more prone to falling AND not being able to get back up." Aeron did a motion and the earth began to shake. "Have fun staying afoot with an Earthquake at hand~"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 15, 2013, 05:34:54 AM
The statue jumped into the air and fell back down, creating a tremor that was far more massive than the one Aeron sent out and a sandstorm began to whip in out of nowhere.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 15, 2013, 09:13:53 AM
Aeron jumped into the air and stayed. "hmm. I see. you defy logic. Well then, you leave me choice. he only hope I have left, because I have run out of Ideas." Ivan summoned a large cake which was tossed at the statue's face. "TROLOLOLOLOL. Okay I'm done. I'm out of ideas. If anybody has any Ideas please tell me so I can help." The thick vines still attempted to wrap themselves around the beast and held on tightly. Aeron had to be weird and do that. He hadn't used his sense of humor in a long time.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 15, 2013, 04:17:44 PM
Strato jumped in front of the statue's face and ate the cake in midair. "NOMNOMNOMNOM," he said, munching on the deliciousness.

Strato kept at the slicing, moving back and forth with each slice. The cuts were slowly getting deeper.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 15, 2013, 09:21:35 PM
(Time to blow y'all's minds. >: D)

The cake splattered all over the statue's face, blinding it severely. It roared in pain as the wind pounded upon it, making it crack. "Keep it up!" called Drelys, hacking and slashing at it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 16, 2013, 02:18:51 AM
(So it doesn't like cake? or it doesn't like lies?)

"WOOT! TAKE THIS!" Aeron started extreme power washing the statue's face, aiming to get water in it's eyes and also trying to get enough water pressure to hit the statue hard enough to crack it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 16, 2013, 06:45:24 AM
(XD)

The statue roared in fury and the very ground trembled. "I've had enough of this!" it shouted. Cracks appeared everywhere on the ground.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 17, 2013, 09:07:42 AM
"Everybody up!" Aeron said as he raised everybody up into the air.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 17, 2013, 09:02:44 PM
Serena created a whirlwind below her and held herself in the air.
"So... How do we beat this thing?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 18, 2013, 12:42:54 AM
Strato walked up the air like steps and kept at his wind slashing. He felt the carving became large enough and started running at midair towards the guardian.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 18, 2013, 06:04:06 AM
Drelys shouted back. "KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING! IT'S WORKING! SEE THE CRACKS? SOON, HE'LL FALL APART!" Then, Drelys blasted the Guardian with an endless barrage of lightning-fast attacks.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 18, 2013, 06:46:12 AM
Aeron summoned a bow and Arrow. He aligned it all up, but before releasing it, the arrow head became a sideways blade and was shot with extreme force, causing it to speed with more velocity than a normal arrow.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 18, 2013, 02:47:29 PM
The blade caught and stuck in the statue's head, but it fought on. With a massive roar, the statue sent out a massive blast of sandy wind. Even Drelys was knocked off his feet.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 18, 2013, 11:32:06 PM
Serena sent out a jolt of wind to boost herself high into the air, enough to get her out of the sandy winds' way.
She then sent out a constant blast of dry out toward the creature from above.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 19, 2013, 12:26:16 AM
Strato held his arm up and a shield of wind was blocking the sandy wind. He continued to dash until he was next to the crack he made. He corkscrewed upwards and stabbed his swords into the crack, holding on.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 19, 2013, 03:32:32 PM
Another roar summoned GIANT scorpions and spiders along with some giant king cobras. The statue batted Strato away and began shambling toward Aeron.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 20, 2013, 12:16:05 AM
Strato sighed as he landed back onto the ground. "Uh, more bugs." He put his bow back together and fired some arrows at the scorpions.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 20, 2013, 06:19:34 AM
"Ack! Go for the weak link eh?!" Aeron notched another blade arrow. "Well take this!" he shot it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 20, 2013, 04:47:47 PM
"You are not the weak link," said the statue. "Each and every one of you has equal po--" Then, his head fell off from a deft blow from Drelys. The spiders turned to ash as the Guardian fell. "You talk too much," muttered Drelys.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on December 21, 2013, 06:59:57 AM
the arrow missed it's target and headed for somebody Aeron couldn't make out who it was. He brought himself to the ground quickly and sprinted toward the person. "WATCH OUT!" he shouted as he lunged at the person to knock them out of the way of the speeding arrow that was previously shot by Aeron himself. He could tell it was a guy right when they made contact, for Aeron had his face in the guy's chest as he tackled him out of harm's way.

(could be anybody. anybody can take liberty of saying it was them knocked out of the way.)
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle

(I would make it be Strato, but he would probably just dodge both the arrow and Aeron.)

Strato tried to see who Aeron tackled, but his adrenaline ended and the pain leaked in. He clutched his shoulder and sat down. "Don't mind me, go kill the other critters."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 21, 2013, 04:36:19 PM
Alcarius fell to the ground under a full-bodied tackle from Aeron. "What the---" he began. Then, he was hit, and finally, he saw where the statue fell. "Oh. Thank you, Aeron. You have saved me. I owe you my life."

Amye turned to Strato. "Are you okay? Here, I can heal that."

Drelys watched all the giant arachnids turn to ash. "Wow, impressive," he said simply.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 21, 2013, 07:59:54 PM
Strato smiled. "Well, not if it involves some kind of magic. I don't really like any healing magic on me, feels weird. Thanks for the consideration though."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 21, 2013, 09:10:44 PM
Amye pulled out a healing salve and handed it to Strato. "No magic," she said with a smile.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 22, 2013, 02:27:54 PM
Strato took the salve. "Thanks, Amye. I owe ya one." In a couple of minutes, the wound healed and he got up. "Well, this fight over?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 22, 2013, 03:06:45 PM
A portal opened where the Guardian had been originally standing. "Does that tell you?" asked Drelys.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 23, 2013, 05:33:28 AM
Strato jumped back when he saw it, but gradually got closer to it. "Jeez, that freaked me out. We all ready to go in?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 23, 2013, 06:17:32 AM
Drelys looked at the group. "I don't know: Are y'all?" he asked. Amye and Alcarius nodded.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 23, 2013, 08:02:30 AM
Zealot walked out of the shadows. "I am... Now that I've dealt with... An enemy... For the time being..." He said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 23, 2013, 02:33:30 PM
Amye walked to Zealot and looked at him curiously. "What's wrong?" she said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 23, 2013, 05:28:39 PM
Zealot smiled. "Oh, nothing. I had to take care of something, and it is taken care of. Let us go."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 24, 2013, 06:32:27 PM
(PLOT TWIST!!!)

Then, Zealot walked out of the portal and stood before Amye. Now, two Zealots stood by Amye, one on either side.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 24, 2013, 07:31:45 PM
"Hmm. I suppose you should attack us both." Zealot said with a smile.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 25, 2013, 03:06:59 AM
The other Zealot smiled. "Well, that sounds like a brilliant idea!" he said with a wolf-like grin. Amye looked at them and took a frightened step back, shaking her head. "I-I can't!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 25, 2013, 03:24:00 AM
"Then we must fight each other." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 25, 2013, 03:27:46 AM
Alcarius stepped forward. "Or I could fight you both," he offered. Zealot nodded excitedly.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on December 25, 2013, 01:23:40 PM
Strato nodded at this. "This is bound to be interesting."

Serena noded and sat down. "Let me know if you guys need help." 
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 26, 2013, 05:01:07 PM
"Hmm... But if I severely wound you, Amye would be quite angry, and I cannot promise I won't. Battle can change a man." Zealot said.

(Zealot was talking about "you" meaning the group.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 26, 2013, 10:28:25 PM
Serena scoffed. "Only the weak lose themselves in battle." She looked up and gave Zealot a challenging half smile.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 27, 2013, 01:06:32 AM
"So you think, but it happens to the strong just   as easily, if not more so." Zealot said, his face like stone.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on December 27, 2013, 04:58:03 AM
"To be considered strong, one must be prepared not only physically prepared but mentally as well. When not in the correct mindset, physical is weakened. There must be balance. If you do not know friend from foe, you are not ready." She said with her eyes shut.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 27, 2013, 05:28:44 AM
"That's stupid. People are strong when they can defeat every oponent. Plus... Everyone has a dark side, and using too much power can tire you out and let them take hold." Zealot said with a look of sorrow on his face.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 27, 2013, 04:27:38 PM
Zealot rushed toward Zealot, slashing and hacking in a seemingly wild manner, but there was a method to this madness...
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 27, 2013, 05:32:22 PM
Zealot sighed. This was boring to him. They were the same person, if they.  Battled, it would end in a deadlock.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 27, 2013, 05:47:32 PM
Zealot was almost upon Zealot. If the other did not act, he would die.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 28, 2013, 07:45:33 AM
Zealot waited until the other Zealot was upon him to act. He swung his scythe up to meat the fake in the face.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 28, 2013, 01:48:55 PM
Zealot jumped over Zealot and slashed at his back. Alcarius's eyes grew dark...
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 29, 2013, 01:19:24 AM
Zealot bentnovr backwards to dodge the blow and tried to kick the other him in the face.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 30, 2013, 03:48:26 PM
Zealot knocked the leg away and slashed with his staff, but Alcarius blocked the attck anddealt a swift punch to Zealot's chest.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on December 30, 2013, 07:19:24 PM
Zealot swung his scythe at Zealot, hoping to cut his face off.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on December 31, 2013, 04:26:10 PM
The blow landed on Zealot's neck, decapitating him. Alcarius rushed at the standing Alcarius and put him in a headlock. "What is my name and who is my sister?!" he demanded. Shadows poured from his body as he was charged up and ready to kill.

Post by: Ivan Strider on January 01, 2014, 01:10:17 AM
Aeron had not payed attention to what was going on. He was too busy thinking about his father. He was probably searching for Aeron like mad. Aeron missed his dad. When they weren't training him his dad would hold him tight and comfort him. Returning home for his dad was mind changing. His dad would remember the night that his mother died and immediately reenact the last part of it, which was 1)cook dinner 2) then eat dinner 3)collapse to his knees on the rug in their common room. 4)get up and hug Aeron while crying (as Aeron came into the room to calm his dad down) 5)bring them both down to their knees stay like that until he cried himself to sleep.

Aeron had to admit that he would cry too whenever he was at home. He missed being held by his dad. Truthfully it did calm him down. It made Aeron feel safe and wanted, and maybe even needed. Not to mention loved.

Aeron came back to the present and was immediately confused. "What's going on?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on January 01, 2014, 07:03:24 AM
"Your sister is the beautiful Amy, and you are geting on my nerves, Alcarius." Zealot said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 01, 2014, 06:07:50 PM
The shadows subsided and Alcarius released his grip. "My apologies," he said. "I had to make sure you were the real one."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 01, 2014, 07:09:20 PM
It was nice watching a fight for once" She said as she stood up.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 02, 2014, 08:25:28 PM
Strato got up and thought a bit. "Well that portal thing just makes another you, and I don't see any other exit here. Where the hell do we go now?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on January 03, 2014, 05:47:14 AM
"um maybe that way?" Aeron pointed in a random direction that seemed like a good way to point
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 06, 2014, 02:35:22 PM
Alcarius nodded and then the sands began to shift again. Drelys cursed. "This is new," he said. The Guardian rose again!
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on January 08, 2014, 07:02:43 AM
"Not this time!" Aeron hopped up on the air like there were platforms there. Up he went until he brought his sword out forced himself downward while the blade, also pointing downward. Lightning would strike when he made contact.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 08, 2014, 02:50:26 PM
Then a hand shot out of the ground and grabbed Aeron! Drelys was slashing quickly at the arm, but it was doing nothing. Amye was firing shots of ice at the Guardian, but they were being shot down by powerful sand blasts. Alcarius was firing powerful shots of shadows at the Guardian, but a wall of sand blocked it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 09, 2014, 01:21:32 AM
"Seems we can't use range against this thing..." Strato threw a fireball to curve to the Guardian's head, and he dashed in to attack.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 09, 2014, 07:33:12 AM
Serena walked over to the Guardian and looked at what she thought was a face.
"Uhh, hey Guardian? Yeah, Uhh how about we stop fighting and how about you tell us how to leave this area with that portal thing?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 09, 2014, 06:11:10 PM
(>8D)

The Guardian stopped fighting back. "It seems as though the challenge has been thwarted," it said. "For knowledge of the terrain reigns supreme. Your battle was impressive, but it seems as if you have learned the point of this challenge: To use your brains to solve problems." The sands shifted into a "sandpool," a whirlpool of sand. "Step into the spiral to take you to the next area."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 09, 2014, 10:07:18 PM
Strato was dashing in, heard the thing speak, and jumped in the sandpool. Whoosh.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 09, 2014, 10:49:52 PM
Serena smiled at the Guardian.
She bowed.
"Thank you."
She walked over to the whirlpool.
"You all can thank me later. Let's go."

Post by: Tetsu on January 13, 2014, 02:55:41 PM
The statue looked at Aeron. "Oh," it said. "I kind of forgot I was holding you. My apologies." He set Aeron down and the statue dove back down into the sand, final words ringing in their ears. "Know when to ask and when to fight, for not all reveal the next portal just through questioning."

The party walked into the sandpool and they arrived on the summit of a great mountain. Drelys looked at the group. "Be careful," he said.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 13, 2014, 04:52:22 PM
Serena looked far into the distance. The view was breathtaking.
"Wow..." She managed. "I feel more powerful up here. It's very windy."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 13, 2014, 07:03:12 PM
Alcarius had a deep frown on his face. "Something feels off," he said. "Be very careful here, Serena. Do not let the beauty cloud your judgement."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 14, 2014, 01:12:57 AM
Strato smiled. "I used to climb up mountains like this. Always going everywhere, exploring new things. This view reminds me of home." He set an arrow, "Well, gotta focus on the task at hand."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on January 15, 2014, 08:12:27 AM
"This doesn't feel like a normal mountain. It's too...bare? Most mountains usually have trees growing and where they don't near the top, there's usually snow..assuming that there isn't snow, but I dunno. I could be blind for all I know." Aeron replied.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 15, 2014, 04:36:34 PM
Serena was still taking in the scenery. She opened and closed her eyes, steadily breathing in and out. .
"Č cosė bello qui." She mumbled.
"There is a similar place like this from where I'm originally from... I would go to the top of the mountain with a friend of mine to train. She was a Mercury adept..."
Serena then remembered that people here weren't considered 'adepts'.
She looked to the group. "Well, here it's considered magic."
She went back to enjoying the view.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on January 16, 2014, 07:30:45 AM
"Adepts?! I haven't heard that term used by anyone but my dad....uh...nevermind...I don't feel like talking anymore..."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 24, 2014, 08:07:34 PM
Drelys loked at Aeron. "Good," he said. "Because this is another Test." With that, a loud explosion filled th party's ears. Alcarius conjured a shadowy shield to protect his sister. Eguid nimbly dodged all debris that came his way.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 24, 2014, 08:25:31 PM
Serena created a whirlwind around her self to redirect the debris coming toward her.
When she was finished, she looked into the distance.
"Where did that come from?"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 25, 2014, 04:33:30 AM
A huge statue could be seen behind Serena. Well, "statue" wouldn't be the right term here. It was made out of magma that stayed in place due to some unknown force. It roared loudly.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on January 25, 2014, 08:22:42 PM
"Molten magma?! I wonder what would happen if it hardened." Aeron pondered as he sprayed the thing with a powerful surge of cold water.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 26, 2014, 02:57:19 PM
Strato stayed behind Serena's shield to cover from the debris. The molten "statue" appeared, and Strato thought about it. "How the heck is this thing staying up?" He tried to convert the wind pressure around the statue to push it down.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 27, 2014, 07:03:20 PM
Serena looked behind her, seeing her teammates begin attacking the magma statue.
She stopped using her wind, and turned fully around to fave the beast.
"Interesting... "She said, and crossed her arms." Let's see if their attacks do anything. "
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 30, 2014, 03:45:45 PM
The water turned to steam before it hit the statue. The downward pressure only succeeded in making the Guardian notice Strato. Lava shot up from the mountaintop, the statue willing it toward the party.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 30, 2014, 06:37:18 PM
Strato willed the lava to arc off the side of the mountain, away from the group. "What are we supposed to do to this thing..."
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 30, 2014, 11:40:48 PM
"Hmm... Well, cooling it would be a good idea. Maybe if I encased the statue in a tornado? We can try that."
She unfolded her arms and stepped forward. She picked herself up into the air with her wind, and looked down at the others. "Try to distract it for me!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 31, 2014, 05:51:41 AM
The statue bellowed and took a step toward Serena. Each step it took left a lava-filled hole in the ground.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on January 31, 2014, 12:34:08 PM
Strato forced pressure on the beast once more, this time to actually draw its attention. He then started pelting it with mini arrows
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Scorpio on January 31, 2014, 01:04:00 PM
Zealot kept attacking with small tornadoes. He had hoped to draw its fire.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on January 31, 2014, 01:32:43 PM
But the statue had a trick up its metaphorical sleeve (as a shirt would just burn if the statue wore it...and they don't make shirts in his size). The statue hunched over, as if it was going to hurl, but then flung its torso back up with a roar, sending out huge flares of fiery energy, extending 500 feet 360 degrees around it.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on January 31, 2014, 07:02:35 PM
Serena eyes became wide as the energy came towards her. She had herself inside of the tornado and braced herself.
The fiery energy dissipated her tornado and sent her flying toward the ground.
She fumbled around for a second before regaining composure and stopped her decent using wind, just a few inches before hitting the ground. She met the ground, and stood up, brushing off a burn she sustained on her left arm.
"Ow. " She said simply.
She took out her twin knives and put them together, creating Joyeuse. She winded back her arm and imbued the sword in a jet stream of air, and threw the sword straight at the beast. The sword was traveling at the speed of sound.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 01, 2014, 08:43:43 AM
"OWAA!!!" Aeron ran for his life to not get burned. "HEY MR. STATUE! COULD YOU NOT BURN THE WEAKLING PLEASE! I MEAN, IT'S NOT LIKE HE KNOWS HOW TO DEFEND AGAINST YOU THAT WELL. ALSO DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO AGAINST YOU! GAAH! WHERE"S THE OFF SWITCH?! I'M BURNING UP!"
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Aether on February 06, 2014, 03:02:08 AM
Strato's eyes widened as he got hit straight in the gut by one of the flares. He rolled on the ground, using wind to take out the flames. "Man, I just can't dodge today, can I." He rolled behind a rock to cool down.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Tetsu on February 15, 2014, 02:54:08 PM
Joyeuse hit the statue in the shoulder, the entire arm falling off. The statue screamed in agony and fury.
Title: Re: Balancing the Chaos Chapter IV - The Final Battle
Post by: Ivan Strider on February 15, 2014, 05:47:19 PM
Aeron got an idea. "Hit it where it's limbs join! That might do the trick!" Aeron skidded to a halt and hurled a blade of wind at the Statue's other shoulder.
