    *Wandering around lost and seeing no sign of his compainions. Dark Blade walks a few more steps*

    Dark Blade: This is patheticly boring...

    *Sensing a strong dark energy source nearby Dark Blade thinks to himself that nobody should have that much dark energy, except him. Dark Blade runs toward the energy and sees a dark stone*

    Dark Blade: What is this?

    *Reaching out and grabbing it Dark Blade feels his power sky rocket. Looking down at himself seeing his sword was now glowing black*

    Dark Blade: Amazing...

    *Dark Blade now with his new powers senses the group and uses his dark teleportation as close as he can to them. Dark Blade emerges from the dark energy ball to see his comrades a few feet away*

    Dark Blade: So there they are...

    *Dark Blade starts walking towards the group and Ryu is the first to notice Dark Blade's presence*

    *Leaps from the tree Dark Blade was obviously standing under, unhooking the strap to his guitar, then taking a striking blow to Dark Blade's forehead!
    (Unknown Character): Heyo! Aww, looks like that hurt you a bit.
    *The unknown character straps up his faithful guitar on his back, then gives a little smile of glory, a bit too trigger happy at that! Dark Blade just utters a few words as as sweatdrop falls from the side of his head. The unknown character, reveling his tail from the severly torn cape that covered his body, made everyone soon to realize then and there to freak out.
    (Unknown Character): Ooo, what a nice stone, looks spiffy! May I join your little travel, eh? ^^
    *The Unknown Character swiftly runs to a nearby edge, where he spots a few more people, discussing the defeat of Ryu.
    (Unknown Character): I'm sensing an enormous amount of power from the South..do you think it's..him?

    Gregorian appears ten miles south of Outpost 9.

    Gregorian: Now....that battle begins.

    Gregorian summons a Death Golem. It towers over him, but Gregorian is able to barely control it. It growls a bit, but moves due north to the outpost.

    Gregorian: Hmm...the more destruction the better.

    Gregorian summons three fanatic blademasters. Their blades were painted with the blood of their many victims.

    1st Blademaster: Your orders, master?
    Gregorian: capture the outpost, with everyone alive.
    2nd Blademaster: Yes, my lord.
    Gregorian: If they come, kill the girl. You know who.
    3rd Blademaster: Yes, my lord.

    The blademasters run after the golem with frightening speed.

    OOC: I was going to wait for Tacitus, but...
    Faint, just to tell you, Tacitus might be a little disjointed at your introduction. This thread started with "For Whom the Art Burns", and, on page one, it says that new characters can only join in allied townships. We are, currently, outside an enemy's outpost. We're also a decent distance from any NPCs.
    Oh! And Ryu wasn't defeated. His skill took him out as a "sacrifice" for using Dimensional Press.
    BOT:
    [color=royal blue]
    As Ryu is about to open the first portal, Fascia stops him. Ryu opens his mouth to speak, but Fascia frowns and shakes his head, negatively. He looks to the distance.

    Fascia: May... I am afraid our current plan may now work.
    May: Why not?
    Fascia: Gregorian has returned. His Death Golem is moving this way.
    Ryu: *closing his eyes; reaching out* No... A Death Golem and three blademasters.
    ???: What are you talking about? Mellow out!
    Lina: May, I do not suggest we split up now, if Gregorian is involved.
    Aphra: I'd have to agree.
    Ryu: *to himself* I promise, Gregorian, your end is near.

    An odd sight occurs as Ryu's emotions boil to the surface (in a sense). His right arm begins to convulse lightly, and his skin seems to wrap itself into a shape and seperate from his body. The shape becomes a sword, created from his own dragon's scales. The sword appears to be as much a part of him as the skin and scales that once composed this now metal sword.

    Tsukin`asu: What happened, Ryu?
    Ryu: It's only a new skill. *to himself; looking at Lina* I sense something...[/color]

    *Cloud*Hey, Tidus, think you can survive the battle? This is sure to be the most fierce we'll ever have, until our next encounter with William and Giles. I hate those creeps.

    *Tidus*I'll live. Everyone, Cloud and I have something for you.*Tidus and Cloud take out the swords that the Smith aquired for them, and gives one to each of his comrades*

    *Ryu*It's unbelieveable. Clearly the work would be worth at the least 10 platnium pieces.

    *Cloud*He said the whole bunch was worth more than 100 platnium. He gave them to us as a gift. Charge it with any element, and it takes it and forms into and elemental blade. It also has the ability to retract into the hilt using strange and strong magic. Therefore it is strong, lightweight, and easy to carry around. It has some range of adjustable lengths, such as a sword for a smalkler person to a sword the size of a Claymore. You can change it's element at any time too.

    *May*Amazing. Simply amazing.

    *Ryu*Wow. Thank you Cloud, Tidus.

    *Tidus*Don't thank us, thank the Smith, he went on the trip and got them for us.

    *Cloud*Yea. One more thing, itm is extremely dificult to break. Maybe impossible, although none have tried and succended.

    *Group*Thanks!

    *Cloud*Are we all ready for battle now?

    *Tidus*Let's do it!

    ooc: ok, i'm sorry faint, but you;re outta here! i think i mentioned soewhere that i was cutting off entrants, but it may have got erased when someone was ****ing around with my account so I am sorry to inform you, but that post has just been IGNORED, anyway...

    BOT:
    May: At any rate, once this outpost falls, and it shall fall, I will be leaving you to distract them while you reign as much distruction as you can. I want no objections, cause i will not heed them.

    *the Gem slowly begins to glow*

    May: If it looks that I am in danger at any time, fear not, for my Guardian watches over me. [do YOU get it?] Now, on tot he outpost. We are The Brigade of Avenging Light, we know no fear! Only Victory! (coldly) They will know the taste of cold steel.

    Gregorian is two miles from the outpost, when the blademaster approaches Gregorian. He is bloodied and wounded badly.

    Gregorian: What happened to you?
    Blademaster: They would not listen to us. They simply attacked us, and killed two blademasters. The Death Golem is running back towards us.
    Gregorian: Resistance, eh? Then......

    Gregorian summons a Dark Executioner. He is cloaked in black, and he holds a scythe in both hands.

    Dark Executioner: Master, your orders?
    Gregorian: Escort me to the outpost....I shall deal with them.

    The Death Golem can be heard. It stops in front of Gregorian.

    Gregorian: Well then....they shall feel the pain!

    Gregorian move rapidly towards the outpost. Soon, he reaches the entrance. Bloodstains could be seen on the walls. The sentries were dead. But they were replaced by five new Master Swordsmen.

    1st Swordsman: Well, well. You must be the intruder.
    Gregorian: Get outta my way!
    2nd Swordsman: Hmph. We've better teach him a lesson
    3rd Swordsman: Agreed.

    All five charge at Gregorian, swords at hand.

    Gregorian: So...you dare to defy me?! Devil's Spear!

    Gregorian throws the black spear. It pierces through all the five adversaries, killing them instantly, and turning them ino ashes.

    Gregorian: Hmm.....they made me waste some energy...damn them.

    Meanwhile.....

    Lina: Umm....Ryu?
    Fascia: It seems that the base is toughter than I thought. This is very good news. At least we will have some time, to convince those in that base to join our cause.
    Cloud: Yes. They seem pretty tought, Ryu?


    OOC: I wrote this because I did not know what to write..and to show that the outpost is harder than it looks to takeover...

    May: They would never join us, even if they were faced with a superior adversary. We killed many of their bretheren. Some most likely twice. You may try and convince them to join us, but don't expect me to come running to save your ass if they try and kill you. Screw this shit, I'm going to take out one of the outposts in the network, alone. Hmm....I have an idea....

    *She takes off, high into the air, hands glowing with a spell she seems to be preparing*

    Gregorian: Now.....

    Gregorian enters the outpost. Everyone bows down to him, seeing that he defeated their best.

    Gregorian: Excellent. Now....

    Gregorian spots the leader. It is a battlemage.

    Battlemage: Well, well. I praise you for defeating my Swordsmen.
    Gregorian: Yes. Now......

    Gregorian summons five Dread Hawks. They circle around him.

    Gregorian: See if they are nearby....

    The Dread Hawks fly north.

    the fall of outpost 8

    BOT:
    *Of in the distance Ryu can see May glowing with a golden light as spells begin flinging at her. She stares straight back at Ryu for a moment and then dives at the ground. Right as she hits the ground a huge golden globe surrounds the Outpost as the spells fizzle out and die away. (unseen) May stands in the center of the outpost, a group of battlemages surround her, tryiggn to cast spells, but they all fail. A Battlemaster steps forward.*

    BM: So, you've foiled our priests and Battlemages, ooo, we're scared. What can a single woman like you do to us?
    May (monotone): You really want to know?
    BM: Oh yes, by all means, show us what you can do!
    May: Very well, if you insist.

    *She pulls out the elemental blade, retracted*

    BM: You're going to kill us all with that?
    May: Why of course, but don't forget my other blade. *The Holy Avenger falls from the sky into her hands*
    BM: I'm so scared, its a longsword!!!
    May: You should be.

    *The elemental blade, now dubbed Animus Caritas by May bursts forth with terrible flames, singing the Battlemasters beard from the intense heat. A blue aura makes the flames seem to pierce the sky when she swings it around and over her head.*

    May: This blade is good...especially after my enhancements.

    *The Battlemaster lunges at May, but falls to the ground, quartered*

    May: Anybody else in the mood for some fun?

    *Nearly all the militia rush forward and begins slashign at May, doing minimal damage. Several Adamantine Golems walk up behind the militia, ready to take May down. In the distance the globe flashes with white light as a teleportation spell hits it, and is reflected to the center of Rurikan Territory*

    OOC: Okay then. Outpost #9 will fall.
    BOT:
    [color=royal blue]
    Ryu: *smiling* Well now, let's take this outpost!

    Ryu and the others rush the oupost, surprised by the minimal defenses. They quickly take the front lines and hurry to the wall, expecting tougher opposistion. Ryu has Cloud's gift sheathed at his side, holding his original sword as it formed from his body. The archers atop the walls are quickly taken by Tsukin`asu's skill, and mages are silenced by Aphra's clerical spells. As they are attacking, Fascia stops suddenly.

    Fascia: *to himself* He's here?!
    Ryu: *looking at Fascia* I thought so. *looking at Lina* Is the time coming?

    The doors to the oupost open and more militia flood out, followed closely by a few mages and clerics who can no longer cast and a variety of battlemasters. They quickly cut through the militia, and the battlemasters line up, one on one on Ryu, Fascia, Lina, Cloud, Tidus, and Tsukin`asu.

    Ryu: *smirking* We've got this made![/color]

    *The Globe flashes several times as Teleportation spells try to get through, finally, they get smart and teleport to just outside it, but they still cannot enter. With each spell or weapon that strikes the Golden Globe, May winces slightly.*

    May: Pitiful militia, but then I have to deal with these damnable Adamantine Golems.

    *she spins around at high speeds and just as she starts to get dizzy, she juts out her weapons, gutting several militia and setting a few on fire*

    May (to self): I'm not really looking forward to those golems...

    Gregorian: Hmm? They're here?

    Gregorian summons a portal.

    Militia: Hmm? What's that for?
    Gregorian: Don't ask questions......

    Gregorian throws a spear ar him. It instantly is vaporised.

    Gregorian: Now.......everyone, take care of them. I want no survivors!

    All of the militia, battlemages go to meet the enemy party.

    Gregorian: Now...master...

    Liana appears from the portal. He seems displeased.

    Liana: Gregorian......you have not destroyed them yet....
    Gregorian: master, I have not the time....
    Liana: Well then. I shall have to do it myself.

    *May drops Animus Caritas and turns quickly to look in the direction of outpost 9*

    May: A great evil....

    *Several of the militia jump onto her back and begin stabbing her, most of their blades break with a white light, while a few puncture her, but only in non-vital areas. She rips them off her back and throws them into the croud. Slowly her Gem begins to glow with a bright blue light*

    The sky quickly turns dark. Suddenly all turns cold in outpost 9. Gregorian feels the cold, but does not say anything.

    Gregorian: Master.....
    Liana: Not yet. Now......

    Liana casts the Devil's Touch. Instantly all within a twenty metre radius is destroyed, except for Gregorian and Liana.

    Liana:....feel my power. At last...I have regained all my strength...
    Gregorian: Master.....
    Liana: What, mortal?
    Gregorian: I wish to kill them personally.
    Liana: Fine with me.
    Gregorian: Yes, master.

    Meanwhile....

    Fascia: Oh shit......he's back.
    Cloud: I'm sure that we can kill whatever it is. Right, Ryu?
    Ryu: I don't think so....he seems really powerful. Even more powerful than me.

    Ryu, and the rest of the party easily dispatch the remainder of the enemy forces.

    Ryu: Now! Let's go!
    Gregorian: Now.....this is the end.
    Ryu: Huh?

    Gregorian throws the Devil's Spear at Ryu. Ryu almost got him, but managed to dodge it.

    Ryu: Is that the best you can do?
    Gregorian: No. You haven't see the worst of my powers.....
    Ryu: Hmm? Right then.
    Fascia: Stand back, Ryu. I shall take care of him.
    Gregorian: Now, brother.......

    Gregorian casts Dark Strike. It hits Fascia straight in the chest.

    Fascia: Heh, heh. Is that your best shot?
    Gregorian: Hmm....you're more resilient than I thought. But.....

    Fascia charges at Gregorian with is sword. HE slashes Gregorian on the arm, but it seems that he was not affected.

    Fascia: Hmm? Not affected?
    Gregorian: I grow more powerful everytime I get defeated......

    Gregorian summons a Dark Sword, and attempts to slash Fascia. Fascia fortunetely blocks his blow with ease.

    Fascia: Damnit.....

    OOC: A good warrior never reveals his strength. Ryu would never say he's more or less powerful than someone unless it's purerly to annoy them (i.e. saying his brother, Darz, is less powerful).
    I also hope you don't mind me taking liberties with Lina now.
    BOT:
    [color=royal blue]
    Ryu: *seeing Fascia engaged in a battle he knows he won't win* Fascia!
    Fascia: *in his mind so only Ryu can hear* I already know what the outcome will be. Help her!

    Ryu looks around the battlefield. His aura is protecting them from the evil force and any instant death effects it may decide to use. Aphra is handling, specifically, injuries. Tsukin`asu is protecing her. Tidus and Cloud are handling any straglers. Lina is in easy veiw and Ryu knows what must happen.

    Between Lina and Ryu in the realm of the mind​

    Ryu: Lina... You are the only one who can defeat Gregorian.
    Lina: *looking around, and at herself in "angel" form* Where am I?
    Ryu: In your mind. SoulLore has lead me here.
    Lina: SoulLore?
    Ryu: *as Lina turns to her "angelic" form* You will see...

    Ryu cringes in pain for a second as he, himself, takes on a visage similar in form to Lina and retaining all of his physical characteristics. He looks deeply into Lina's eyes, and she begins to realize her own power.

    Ryu: Lina! Take hold of your power! Fascia has been protecting you so that you could aquire it! I was sent to pronounce it! Reach toward it and you will be chanced, forever!
    Lina: I...I don't know!
    Ryu: Do not fear! I will be with you to learn it! Part of SoulLore is a merger of souls.
    Lina: A merger?!
    Ryu: Only long enough for you to gain confidence in your power. Will you accept it? Will you take hold of your own power?[/color]

    OOC: I leave the rest to you, D.F.I. You can choose how your character permenentally changes.

    *Cloud*Yes, all it took was studying the poison barbs from our encounter with.... them

    *Tidus*William and Giles?

    *Cloud*Yes. Ok, now... lets see...*C;loud begins throwing knives at the enimies near him. Each one that is it dies almost instantly.*

    *Cloud*Good. Now, lets see what we can do elsewhere....

    The original Sin City LAS VEGAS!
    OoC: Ok, I've been a tad quiet for a while put the above post from Cloud just will not do. Each of William's poisons are specially prepared for their individual tasks and created from William's very blood. No matter how much studying of the poison coated needles you did it would be IMPOSSIBLE to even remotely recreate their affects. For that matter, how would even be able to study them? Each needle is tipped with a minute amount of the poison and you won't be able to remove it without high tech scientific gear that I can guarantee is not available in a fantasy setting. Lastly, and most importantly for future reference, the poisons are such a diluted form of the blood that even if you did manage to acquire a sufficient amount through magical means not only would it be useless to you beyond it's intended use but the pressure of the magics would probably contaminate the solution anyway.

    Now I know some may see this as power-gaming but most of it should be OBVIOUS, you're not going to get a large amount of poison off the needles nor would you be able to reproduce the affects of a highly magical substance without a sample of that substance. So yeah, if you had a sample of William's blood, which you don't, you MIGHT be able to reproduce the effect.

    Thank you for your time.

    Greogrian: Brother....you know you cannot defeat me......
    Fascia: I know.....but.....

    Gregorian pushes Fascia back twenty feet. Fascia seems to be injured.

    Gregorian: But what, brother?

    Gregorian throws his sword at Fascia, which he easily dodges.

    Fascia: You are easily fooled......

    Fascia charges at Gregorian again. Gregorian easily blocks Fascia's attack.

    Gregorian: I was easily fooled.....

    Gregorian counterattacks, attempting to deal a mortal blow to Fascia. However, Fascia blocks every single attempt.

    Fascia: This is too easy....
    Gregorian: Now.....

    Gregorian summons the Devil's Spear, and throws it at Fascia. It flies at lightning speed. Fascia attempts to dodge it, but fails. Fascia is severely wounded on his right side.

    Fascia: Damnit.....

    Gregorian towers over Fascia, Devil's Spear in hand.

    Gregorian: This is the end.......brother.
    Fascia: You're wrong, Gregorian.
    Gregorian: And how am I?
    Fascia: There is never an end to this.......

    Meanwhile.......

    Ryu: Will you accept it, Lina?
    Lina: Why must I accept that responsibility? Why cannot someone else do it?
    Ryu: I do not know......but all I know is that out of us, you can only defeat Gregorian perminantly.
    Lina: Must I?
    Ryu: It's your choice. I cannot make the decision for you.......
    Lina: But I do not want to........

    Back to the battle.....

    Gregorian: Now....feel the wrath of Gregorian!

    Gregorian brings the spear down onto Fascia. However, he does it in a slow motion, allowing Fascia to escape the killing blow.

    Fascia: I...must give time....to Lina....
    Gregorian: Never! This is the last time!

    Gregorian throws the spear at Fascia. This time however, Fascia is able to dodge it. THe spear smahes into a nearby building, destroying it completely.

    Fascia:...for only she can defeat this evil......

    Fascia summons the Devil's Spear, and charges at Gregorian.

    Gregorian: What the?! Only......
    Fascia:.....There is no other way......

    Fascia attempts to stab Gregorian wiht the spear, but Gregorian is too fast for him. Fascia feels a sharp pain in his stomach. He looks down, and sees a dagger, tipped with a very potent poison, in Gregorian's right hand.

    Gregorian: Now.....this is the end.

    Meanwhile.....

    Lina: Oh god....
    Ryu: Will you accept it?
    Lina: For everyone...yes......I will....for Fascia......

    An aura suddenly surronds Lina and Ryu. Everyone in outpost 9 can feel this unnatural power, even Liana.

    Lina: ...Now.....with the help of my friends.....I shall.....

    Lina has transformed into her "angel" form. She is holding her sword.

    Lina:...Defeat you, Gregorian, for the crimes you have done.....

    Gregorian looks up.

    Gregorian: Oh no.....
    Fascia: Gregorian...it's too late. Your fate has been chosen.....
    Gregorian: Not yet.

    Gregorian stabs Fascia another time, this time in the neck. Fascia bleeds uncontrollably from his neck wound.

    Fascia: You cannot kill me like this, Gregorian......
    Gregorian: No. But you will die......

    Gregorian summons the Devil's Sword. He grabs it from mid-air, and readies himself for Lina's arrival.

    OOC: Do we not pay attention? D.F.I., the powers of SoulLore must be dispersed. To disperse it, Lina must accept her powers. I do not know what you have in planning for her, so please activate the final sequence. I'll clean it up if I have to.
