Hiro spun his sword around, creating a bright flash to capture some of the surging draugr's attention. His flaming blade was quick to pierce through a draugr's chest. He flung his arm to the side pulling the draugr out of his way and his blade out of its chest all in one move. Moving on to the next, he jabbed one two times in the chest before knocking it aside with a spinning slash. Two draugr had gotten passed him and were charging straight for Elspeth Deciding his sword to be insufficient for the fight, he dispelled the flames and sheathed his sword. As he did so, a small swirl of darkness appeared behind him. Reaching around behind him, he plunged his hand into the swirl. In one swift slash, he retrieved a monstrous sword from the whirl and knocked aside several charging draugr. The blade was nearly as long as he was tall and shared his width at the cross guard. "Worry not of precision, instead try to kill without serious structural damage to the body." He hastily traced some symbols on the flat of the blade. They were symbols of force, concussion, and kinetic prowess.
Grabbing onto the pommel with his left hand to stabilize the blade, he continued the fight only allowing the occasional draugr passed him. His greatsword didn't favor precise strikes to swiftly kill individual enemies but rather worked well to knock aside large amounts of enemies. With the added enchantments, the force of the blade alone was enough to kill the oncoming draugr with minimal damage to the body. The bodies began to pile up outside the reach of Hiro's new blade where they had been carelessly been flung. The tiny sparks of what little life remained in the discarded draugr faded away. This was only the first of an unknown number of waves, but the scales had already tipped in his favor.
Getting up from where she was sitting she watched head towards the bath as she paused. " I would take your offer but watch come first before rest, I need to stand guard encase." With that she headed out the bed room door, down the hall towards the front door. With a heavy sigh she opened the door then slammed it shut as the pain inside her twinged. walking out past the steps she unsheathed her sword as the moon hung gingerly in the sky. Taking a glimpse into the setting of night Kiren jumped onto the roof and took a perch on the edge. there she sat and stared into the darkness of the forest as her mind began to wander.
Lady Elspeth did well to funnel her shots into the tunnel enterance as to funnel her damage output amongst the undead coraling out, but it did little good in the end. It wasn't long before they began to trickle around Hiro, but he did well to remain calm and filled his role well as front line soldier. His tanking was impressive with his large new armament. But even so, she had to pull out her other flintlock to begin fireing in tandem towards the undead making their way towards her. She was just able to keep up with putting them down with the shots of light she let loose. The battle's end was finally within sight, but did they have the stamina to endure?
Out of orchestration, two drauger wielding greataxes would leap high into the air to bring all their weight down in an attempt to slam down on the would-be tank. But it was all but a distraction, for the Death Overlord would make his move to flank Hiro and let loose a powerful thuum.
"Fus Rho Dah ! " it'd shout with intentions of locking him down with the other two. Then it'd charge to shield bash him down!
Meanwhile some other stragglers would begin climbing towards Elspeth on her perch, forcing her to withdraw her supportive cover fire and shoot them down, one at a time.
Florian would soak for nearly an hour in bath salts with rejuvenating qualities before adorning his hakama once again and turning off all lights but a dimmed lamp. How long had it been since he'd slept in a bed? Far too long, he'd look at the soft surface guiltily before falling down upon the feathery surface and release a sigh of the utmost gratitude... Thank you God. The pillow was almost as soft as Kiren's tail, and his eye lids had already become truely heavy. His lower half hung droopily off the bed, but he didn't care, the sensation was so relaxing he was satisfied regardless. His wings dropped like a blanket on top of him and he didn't bother to summon the strength needed to crawl all the way on.
For once, he felt like he could put off worries about being hunted.
For once, being fused to Jaakuna didn't bother him as much... awfully quiet as of late too.
And for once, he had a friend in Talm who'd go as far to stand outside and keep watch for his safety. It was like peace of mind. But in a cute furry form.
There had to be some way he could repay such kindness. But what was there? He still had to find his clue here in The Rainbow Forest. Well, best not to ponder it now. Tommorrow is a new day. Sleep came quietly and quick, and about halfway into the night , Florian would curl up to fully use the bed' s space. Finally... sleep.
Location: Mirth,Mara Farms Mood: Posessed In the company of: Feodore,Charity,Ancilla and Mephisto
Seige - or rather to say - Mephisto,grabbing tight the reins of the dragon,swung him aside just in time when a fire flame charged right next to them.Feodore suddenly jerked down,his energy visibly decreasing,but Seige pulled the reins violently again,kicking him on the side with his leg,all the while not taking his eyes off Ancilla's figure.He,however,let his eyes down for a moment to swing Feodore's body around,and that's when Charity charged at him with her lance.BArely enough time to react,he tilted his body,but not enough as to completely avoid contact with the lance.It sliced through the fabric of his uniform,leaving a cut starting from his neck,ending on his arm.Not even a flinch crossed Seige's face - the demon that controlled the vessel was away,safe and sound. " Cursed wench - do you not realize it?" he shouted,directing Feodore after her. " You'll never hurt me like this!"
He gave Feodore a command,and the Blackbitter couldn't struggle anymore - he charged at Ancilla,managing to grab Ancilla's tail with his teeth.Seige,completely soaked in blood,took out his sword,ready to strike. "Die,human!" he shouted,swinging his sword above Charity.
Hiro made no attempt to stop the draugr with greataxes, keeping his attention on the Deathlord, Hiro turned his backs to the leaping draugr. Just then, a most curious thing happened. Two draugr shambled into the way of the oncoming attack. Hiro didn't see this happen as his back was turned to stay focused on the Deathlord. As the Deathlord took in a breath, Hiro held out a hand and spat out a word. "Cemahla!" The Deathlord finished his shout which blew away the four draugr behind Hiro, but seemed to leave him untouched. Hiro returned his hand to his greatsword and swung to meet the Deathlord's shield bash. Hiro continued to press down with his attack to keep the Deathlord still for a few moments. "Fear not the risen dead, for they are our allies!" True to his claim, the fallen draugr had picked themselves up off the ground and had entered into combat with their former allies. They still seemed to move as before, the only difference being the lack of a spark of life in their eyes.
Sensing her new found friend had fallen asleep Kiren took out her ocarina. Pressing her lips against it she began to play a calming melody as the thoughts of her past flooded back, feeling the ridges of each finger whole the thought of her family, her friends, her lover all just flowed out as tears glistened into the moon light. Many night she felt the pain of being the only one of her kind left in the world but for one night with her new found friend asleep she felt at peace. As she song ended Kiren put her instrument away as she jumped off the roof, making a soft landing on the ground below she a thought came to her mind as she began to patrol the area.
The young Aasimar watched in awe, pausing from her desperate attempt to keep the undead at bay to witness the gaunt figures begin to fight amongst themselves. How was this possible? Did Hiro know necromancy? Could thuums do this?
"Hiro, how are you doing this?" She'd call out to him in curiosity, relieved that with this latest turn of events, that she had time to breathe. The tunnel entrance had ceased spilling out hostile drauger, and with their latest bolster of underlings, the match was easily tied. In the meantime, the Death overlord would crouch low and tackle against Hiro with his shield and sword together to break the dead lock in an attempt to bull rush him.
The hunched cloaked figure would stop in his tracks suddenly within the tunnel he traversed as shapes under his cowl swiveled. "What is it?" inquired the shadowy human shaped figure behind him; authentically curious.
"The drauger... the combat falsetto has changed. The fighting should not have lasted this long. Which means... something is amiss." the hefty figure would speculate bringing a heavily clothed hand to caress his chin. "You can't be serious-...you mean to tell me the ones behind us are still alive? the black misty figure would ask the obvious in an agitated tone resident to noble flair. A slow nod from his companion would confirm it.
"...I'm going to check it out." he'd state bluntly, sinking into the ground.
"Suit yourself... something tells me he's determined to do things his way... what a bother. the decrepit robed figure would slowly shake his head before shuffling onward through the freezing tunnel of frozen glowing mushrooms.
The slumbering angel eater would strive to dream this night... but it was sad to say all he'd receive was bad company in the bowls of his new wretched soul...
He found himself sitting on a flat mountain peak, seated on the ground, and right acrossed from him stood a mountain peak of identical likeness; there Sat Jaakuna. The clouds around them were angry with snow and lightning. The ground below could not be seen for it was a pitch black morass.
"Listen a**wipe... we need to talk." Jaakuna would state.
"There is nothing I want to talk about to the likes of you." Florian answered coolly, but he couldn't hide a quizzical look in his face. Jaakuna wanted to talk? Since when did he ever legitimately want to talk with an enemy? Ever?
"I'm not giving you a choice... Things are going to he'll pretty dam fast with the way things are going, and I don't have time for bull****. So tell me... what's the deal with this 'clue' the hag mentioned? Why the f*** are you sleeping when you should stills be out looking for it!? Why did you spare Alamareshadine!? For f*** sakes, she's a hunter! The Sodekisap wont take this black horse victory sitting down... it's only going to get closer to hell from here, and f*** learning how to cooexist with you. I don't share. And lastly...mind telling me what your connections are with the hussy keeping watch outside? You into sex with underaged girls now,bub? Or do you have a new fetish for dangerous untrustworthy preteens with furry attributes?" Jaakuna pulled no punches with his questions, and being rude was intentional. His patience was already spent, and he wanted answers.
