Okay. Can you give me a number? I was expecting a limit, since there are only so many hours in a day.

Your trainer thanks you very much for the gift of the fine staff weapon. He will cherish it for many years to come and make sure his children and their children learn to use it as well.

In celebration of his new acquisition, he starts to spin the staff with blinding speed. A black aura begins to form in the spinning staff. He then makes a mock strike at you. Make sure you're on your toes. But instead of a mock strike, you are hit by a solid wall of wind that knocks you and everyone standing behind you to the ground.

Yeah, he really likes this fine gift you've given him. He's certain it will be a treasured family possession for generations to come.

OOC) Contested ownership. If he believes he owns it, he can take it away from you when you verse out.


I look embarrassed as I say, "Oh, nonono! I can't give this to you to keep. It was given to me by a very good friend of mine who trained me as a Blacksmith, and helped me in more ways than I can number. I cannot possibly part with it, it means too much to me. If I am able to make anything like this I will happily give it to you, but I can't give you my staff. Please forgive me for the confusion. I just hoped that you could help to protect everyone just in case the Chaosmancer Sam Elliot tries to attack again."
OOC: what if I believe that I am the rightful owner of, say, the Chaos items in the museum?

Yup

The results are hollow glass spheres about an inch in diameter. They're as fragile as lightbulbs. But they're also pretty close to what you wanted to use as your Order bomb.


Which I then hold the nail, chant, and focus on filling them with different spells. I try dark-silence, stop movement in an area, flash freeze, flash order drain, and teleport item.

I create a wooden handle for my Android phone. I turn on the camera app and set it to flash when I hold the button. I place the nail in the handle such that it holds the phone in place, but can be removed. I aim it an inanimate target, chant, and hopefully fire a lethal laser.

I make that handle such that it can also fit on my bow. Then I chant and fire a test shot with the intention of freezing the thing I hit.

GE26

The guy looks confused, then offended. Then infuriated. He throws the staff at you and grabs his own. He's demanding trial by combat. You want the staff? You have to fight him for it. You get the use it in the fight, but you still have to fight him for it. Denying the challenge instantly forfeits the staff to him.

Nothing happens. In fact, you can almost hear the gods of Order and Chaos laughing at you and saying "What part of 'You must have 2@ skill working the material' do you not understand?????"

You botched with the hammer. Don't you remember? You threw a rock at a lady in Mankato.

However, after several attempts, you're still getting nothing.

OOC) Dice didn't like you.

You get to where you can throw the Order strike 50 feet and still hit the rock. You feel like you could do more if you tapped into an alternate Order source.

BOTCH!!! GE 11 for results

You start spinning the whip to create a force field. As you're spinning it, the whip becomes harder and harder to spin. Finally you cannot move at all. You've accidentally cast stop movement on yourself. You will be a statue for the next 30 minutes before it suddenly and without warning drops off so you can move.

Samantha listens intently and prays with you. You think she might have it.

GE25

The camera flash just isn't potent enough to be Ordered that way. Try as you might, the best you can do is focus the flash into a momentary pointer laser.

Strangely though, when you bring the nail close to the iron katana that you made for yourself, they feel like they're drawn together. The nail seems to want to be hammered into the wooden handle of your katana.

To do this, somehow you just know that you would have to use the nail as the arrowhead.

I modify my Katana to incorporate the nail into the handle. Then I strike at some foliage while chanting and directing the Order into flash draining the foliage of Order and using that source to flash freeze it.

2@ skill using the weapon is required to do magic with the weapon.
2@ skill working the material is required to create a magic weapon.

But let's just cut to the chase here. It's not gonna be as bad as you think.

So you square off with the staff master. And of course he trounces you. You get maybe one good hit in, where he's landing them left and right. He finishes it with a foot sweep that sends you crashing to the ground.

And as you're laying on your back, he tells you that you have honored him by accepting his challenge. Keep your staff. He said you had to fight him. He didn't say you had to beat him.

So no more contested ownership.

OOC) Why are you asking me? You need to ask your other Order weapons.

OOC) You're either going to love this or hate it, but it was an idea that I had yesterday.

OOC) The way I'm imagining your katana is a 10 inch, two handed wooden handle with a 21 inch iron blade. It doesn't matter if that's how you're envisioning it. The results will be the same.

Really, all it's telling you to do is tap the nail into the wooden handle with your Order hammer. That's all you have to do.

When you tap the nail into the wooden katana handle, they both start to shake, rattle and roll. You see both the handle and the blade begin to shrink, becoming denser and more compacted. The iron starts to become darker. The wooden handle becomes lighter in color. Almost white.

When all is said and done, you are left with a 12 inch hunting knife. Five inch handle, seven inch blade. The blade is maybe 2 inches wide at its widest point. It curves up into a razor sharp point. And it's black iron.

The handle is denser than before. It looks like it might be wood infused with iron. Like they melded together on an atomic level. In your left hand, it will fit perfectly, better than any knife has before. In your right hand, it will never feel quite right, no matter what you do.

The blade has a single cutting edge. One side is flat and smooth. That's the Orderly side. Inscribed on that side are two words. "HEAT" and "LIGHT"

The other side, the Chaos side, the blade is rougher and serrated. You get the feeling that you would get smooth, straight cuts holding the knife right handed, and serrated cuts holding it left handed. Inscribed on this side are the words "HEALING OPTIONAL", and "UNDECIDED".

Somehow you just know that the nail has combined with your katana to create a Chaos weapon. However, it's limited to only four Chaos skills. Heat and Light are immutable. You are stuck with those skills. Healing is optional. It's basic healing. Cuts, bruises and broken bones. No regrowing limbs or anything fancy. You can take that skill or choose another.

The fourth Chaos skill is entirely for you to decide. But once you decide on your other two skills, they will be inscribed on the blade and immutable and unchangeable.

The nail is gone forever. Your whip is just a whip until you can replace the black iron nail.

OOC) Magehammer would have told you that black iron nails aren't Order or Chaos. They swing both ways. It was Orderly because you had it combined with an Order weapon. Now it's combined with a Chaos weapon. Also, I'd say your 2@ survival skill justifies 2@ knife skill. But since this is a Chaos weapon, you have to learn to use it left-handed, so you've only got 1@10 skill. Gotta practice using it left-handed to do magic. Sorry. You wanted a Chaos weapon, you've got a Chaos weapon. I've a feeling you would rather have the nail though. Tell me what you think.

Re: Supercharacter Scord
I thank the master for the lesson. (I don't expect them, but any new uses in there?)

Since I'm still healing people, will those skills still rise at the end of 100 days?
Also the ones related to the generator at the end of the 6th week?

I do like it. A lot. Even if I end up with more Chaos items, having at least one is an advantage. I hold the knife in my left hand, and try something I've never tried before: I throw a sphere of ice (first created with the hammer) into the sky, and try to cut it with the knife on the way down. Whether I get the new use for that or not, these are my 10:

1@4* Bojutsu
1@2 Flash remove order with hammer
1@2 create cold Using Hammer
1@3* Order sleep Using Hammer
1@1 Order Teleport Using Hammer
1@1* Manipulate Fire Using Hammer
1@2* Stealth Concealment Using Hammer
1@1 Order Hammer Force Field
1@2* Plant Manipulation Using Hammer
1@10 Left handed knife use

Is there ever a situation wherein chaos healing will work but neither prayer nor Order healing would?

So you focus Order with the hammer. You freeze the humidity in the air into an ice ball and throw it into the air.

The knife cuts the solid ball of ice clean as a whistle. Like a knife through butter.

1@1 Order hammer ice attack
+1 knife use.

You need four new uses, four hundred days practice, four times as much training or any combination of the above to raise it to 2@1.

Should I choose 5 or 10 more or something?

Is there ever a situation wherein every mundane task counts as a New Use? Answer: sure, but you'll probably never end up in it.
I haven't decided on Chaos healing yet, but I have decided on something else:

I use my hammer to create a ball of glass from sand. Then I do 3 more things I've never done.
First I smash the glass with my knife, after tossing it up and behind me.
Then I ask someone to toss the larger shards at me one at a time while I deflect them with the knife and scratch them up a bit.
Next I shave with the knife, because it's random, and I've seen it done in movies.
Finally for good measure: I split a hair, I try half-swording, I hold the knife by the blade and club a tree branch with the handle, and I juggle 3 knives (including the Chaos knife; I can juggle balls, and I have juggled butter knives).

I pour mud and grime on the glass so that it is no longer clean.

Then I stab my Chaos knife toward the glass and pull it back toward me as I chant, "CHAOS IN ORDINEM IN CHAOS" and focus on the flow of Chaos to Flash Drain the Chaos from the dirty broken shards of glass.

On the other side, there are also worlds where you instantly lose all body skills immediately on verse in. Including walking and talking. Magehammer had been to one of those worlds.

Trying to New Use yourself to 2@1 knife skill? You're lucky I'm in a good mood. We'll just say 2@1 knife skill and make it easy.

So what are your other two Chaos skills?

What exactly are you doing here and what are you trying to accomplish? What skill do you want to end up having when this is all said and done? If you're just trying to flash-drain Chaos, it's kind of a waste of the skill, really. Chaos magic isn't as tiring as Order magic. I mean, you're in the sun most of the time so you've got an infinite supply of Chaos energy. If you're trying to flash-drain Chaos energy, I would recommend not getting that and saving it for when you've got a "Real" Chaos weapon.

You heal (and do quite a few other Chaos skills) by removing Chaos. So just pick a (Useful) Chaos draining skill and you'll be fine.

Re: Supercharacter Scord
I'll admit the reason why.

I remember what Magehammer said about becoming a Chaos Mage by draining the Chaos from women he gave Chaos to, so it gave me this idea.

I thought that if I could find a substance for which draining the Chaos turned it into a substance that I could drain Order from to turn it into a substance I could drain Chaos from; that I'd be able to go back and forth between the two unlimitedly and work up to very high energy levels in both - hopefully enough to become a mage.

But I should probably wait at least until I'm better at Order item use and then at least as good at Chaos item use before I try to become a Mage in either or both.

So for that reason, I'm going to hold off until I know some more Chaos spells to choose from.

However, Chaos Teleport is tempting me.

If the Bojutsu Master is willing to use my Order Staff without trying to claim it again, I would like to teach him some Order Spells - especially defensive ones. I think he would be a valuable ally if I have to ((get to)) fight Sam Elliot.

Also, I don't remember - did you say that I couldn't make Order items out of wood? I think I just haven't succeeded yet. I do keep trying to make an Order Staff every night as I continue to make and strengthen regular ones.

Ah, but first he was selected to become an Order mage. (More to come)

Magehammer would have told you that you cannot decide to become a mage. You must be selected by the gods of Order and Chaos. You're lucky you can use Order magic weapons at all. Most people can't even use them. He was just blacksmithing at the forge one day and all of a sudden started doing Order magic. He was selected by the gods of Order and Chaos to become a mage.

He tells you that, if you want him to further train you, you have to make him a staff to replace the one you took back. A staff of the highest quality.

quote:
Also, I don't remember - did you say that I couldn't make Order items out of wood? I think I just haven't succeeded yet. I do keep trying to make an Order Staff every night as I continue to make and strengthen regular ones.


Magehammer didn't say it was impossible. He told you that he had only met one tool user who could make Order items out of wood.

So, first things first, you set out to make a staff of the highest quality for the master. Your Chaos blade is the sharpest, highest quality blade you have or could get. Short of ransacking the museum, that is. Chaos blades never go dull. So you are of course using that.

So you cut down a tree branch to make a staff for the master. And you look at it through your hammer. And you see Order and Chaos in the wood. Then it hits you to look at it through your Chaos blade. (Looking through the tool doesn't count as a skill. It's an ingrained function of the tool.) And you see the Chaos much more clearly. And you shave it off. And the Chaos spreads. So you shave it off. And it spreads. So you shave it off. And it spreads. And you shave it. And it spreads. And you shave it.

All night you work on this. And it's the equinox. The single most Orderly day of the year.

The staff begins to feel different. Harder. More dense. It begins to feel perfectly round, smooth and free of splinters. And you shave it. The Chaos spreads, and you shave it.

Just as you're thinking of calling it a night, you realize the sun is peaking over the horizon. You can finally see your staff in the good light. It's black. Completely black. Made from wood that was a much lighter color. And it's energetic.

Then you look at it through your hammer. It's black. Black beyond measure. It's so black it makes coal look blindingly bright by comparison. Same looking through your blade. There's no Chaos at all. Not even the Chaos from the sun is reflecting off of it.

Did you just make an Order staff using the Chaos blade? Only one way to find out.

And Magehammer's voice rings in your ears. A distant memory. A barely remembered voice from the past. "Of Course The Mage who crafted The Weapon can use it!!"

Re: Supercharacter Scord
And so I attempt exactly four times, regardless of success or failure, each of the Order Spells I know (stopping to recharge Order with my hammer if I need to) using the newly created Staff as I chant, "ORDO IN CHAOS IN ORDINEM":

Absorb Order
Flash remove Order
create darkness
create cold
Silence sound
limit movement
((the following 4, I attempt on insects and animals if possible))
healing
cure illness
curse removal
regrow limbs

Teleport
teleport other object
Invisible
Force Field
Stealth Concealment
Stealth Conceal Other
Flame Suppression
Manipulate Fire
Bonus strike I doubt this one will work, but I attempt it anyway
ice attack
Order sleep
Plant Manipulation
strengthen wood
sand into glass
magic clean
translation

((Perhaps the following is premature - but...))
If some of them worked, then I ask the Chinese to gather together for an announcement, and I ask the Bojutsu Master to come to be honoured.

If I can speak enough Chinese now, I do. Otherwise I use Order Translate - preferably through the new Staff.

Once gathered, I ask the Bojutsu Master to step forward.
Then I speak in Chinese, "Good people. You have accepted me and provided protection to me and to mine. You have shown the greatest of hospitality to me. You have honoured me greatly with your help, and I am grateful.

"This man has been training me in Bojutsu, as I suspect he trained many of you. In the life of a Verser such as myself, there are times to take and cherish items that are given by good friends, and there are times to release them and give them to worthy owners."

Spinning the staff directly over your head creates a soup can of (Fill in the skill) the diameter of the staff. You cannot make it larger or smaller and it stops the moment you stop spinning the staff. That's what they're offering. Take it or don't.

You go to a nearby lake. Spin the staff, create the black aura, etc. When you make a mock throw, frost, snow and ice erupt from the staff. You freeze a 10 feet wide section of the lake for a distance of about 40-50 feet out.

"Let he who is worthy to wield this hammer possess the power of Thor." (Paraphrasing Odin.)

You give it to the master who demanded you craft it. He drops it immediately. Butterfingers!!!! But he picks it up again. And again it slips through his fingers.

A small child in total innocence approaches. He picks up the staff and attempts to hand it to the master. It slips through the child's fingers. Samantha tries to pick it up. It slips through her fingers. People are beginning to snicker.

But then another young boy tries to pick it up. He picks it up with ease. Naturally. But when he tries to hand it to this master, it again slips through the master's hands.

Then, someone else. A different master, calls the boy over. He asks the boy to hand the staff to the master standing beside him. And the boy hands it to him. And he holds it. It size adjusts for him and everything.

So it would seem you've just outed the wisest and kindest among them for the next 2 generations.

My reasoning was that a staff I could do magic with is more valuable to me at this time than one I don't have the skill to use. Also that I'd be able to get myself better at making them over time, or at least find another master to make a better one once I could wield it.

See the thing is that straight up removing Order is how you do a lot of different skills. Remove the Order from a field and you rot all of the plants. Remove the Order from a piece of metal and you rust it in seconds. You made your Order staff by removing the Chaos. That's how a Chaos mage makes Ordered black iron. So why don't you just hold off on that until we can figure out some skills to assign to it?

quote:

GE 8

Spin the staff to build up an Order aura. Slam the end of the staff into the ground. Suddenly the world slows down. Everything except you is moving 1/10th the speed.

1@1 Staff Bullet Time. 1/10 speed slow. Lasts 5X the length of time the staff was spinning. 10 seconds of spinning staff = 50 seconds of bullet time.

It doesn't work with the hammer at all. Magehammer told you some weapons do some things and some do others. The hammer teleports, the staff slows things down.

quote:

Technically your Bojutsu level is too low to use an Order staff at all. I didn't think you would remember that Magehammer demonstrated Samantha's Chaos katana when he himself has no sword skill. So "Of Course The Mage who crafted The Weapon can use it!!"

quote:
Excellent. Someone who aspires to be Order/Chaos ambidextrous shouldn't be Orderly all the time.


If you were an Order mage, that Chaos blade would burn you to pick it up.

Magehammer would be completely baffled that you made an Order weapon. Did it work because it was the equinox? Did it work because you still haven't assigned those two skills? Did it work just because you needed another staff?

Regardless, it's not working again. You can see the Chaos, you can remove the Chaos and make it stronger. But no more Order weapons for you today.

But you present the stronger staff.

It doesn't work quite like that. You try to create heat and light in the air, but it just doesn't work. Seems you have to apply the heat and light to something.

But holding the knife and hammer together, you focus the heat and light onto the knife blade. Then channel it though your hammer.

The rock you were pointing it at explodes.

Then your head explodes as it hits the ground. You pass out.

You wake up later that night in your tent. You feel hungover. Too much energy used at once.

Re: Supercharacter Scord
I try some experiments.

First I choose some rocks to focus on, and let the women of the Chinese know that I am about to create temporary sources of heat that they can use for whatever they like. Then I cast Create Heat on the rocks one at a time, paying attention to any drain on my personal energy. I increase the number and amount until I feel a drain. Once I feel a drain, I use my hammer to absorb Order from a nearby tree and pay attention to whether it refuels me or not. If it doesn't I work myself up into an anger by imagining all of the things that anger me, and pay attention to whether this refuels me or not. If it doesn't, I just let the sun refuel me.

After recharged one way or another-

Just to see what happens, I use my Chaos knife to Create Light on a rock, wood, a tree, a ball of glass, a glass of water, an insect, and a small vertebrate.

I try another experiment.

At night, I ask the Chinese what animals they butcher for food, and I ask to see one which is about to be butchered. I use my Staff to make it sleep (new use since it is an animal?) and once it is asleep, I use my hammer to deepen the sleep (new use since it is the first time I tried to deepen the sleep?). Once it is asleep, I use my Chaos Knife (just because, no magic) to carefully cut off one of its legs. Once off, I hand the leg to a cook to be skinned and cooked. Then, the important part of the experiment. I use my Hammer to Regrow the limb (new use because it is an animal?). I use my Hammer to absorb Order from the night to charge up before and after.

If this spell combination worked, I show it to my new Bojutsu Master so that he can do the same one day.

I try another experiment. I find the hardest hardwood tree I can, and I use Order Hammer Plant Manipulation to cause it to reshape itself to grow a perfectly straight branch out to the side (new use?). I then cut it off the tree with my Chaos Knife, and work it into a bow and arrow shafts - using the Knife to remove as much Chaos as I can. The next time I am at the forge, I use my Hammer and Knife (to see the Chaos) to make orderly iron (I hope for but don't expect black iron). If I do happen to get Black Iron, I'll make it into nails. Otherwise, I make arrowheads. I use the Hammer and Knife viewmodes to add as much Chaos to the edge of the arrowheads as I can manage. Then I carefully select feathers to fletch the arrows. Finally I string the bow, and pour Order into the final creation to give it an extra advantage. I don't expect a magical item - just a good quality one. I give this bow and arrows to Samantha.

Although I doubt that I did, if I made Black Iron and even Black Iron nails, I obviously attach one to my whip, and give one to Samantha.

You can transfer heat to the rocks from a distance. It gets progressively more difficult the further away you are. Easiest way is to put the point of the knife against the rock. You can see the white energy flowing.

First rock, you feel calm and relaxed. Probably more so than you have in a while.

Second rock, you feel down and depressed. Eh screw it. Let Slidehammer win.

Third rock, you feel tired and drowsy. Maybe a nap might be in order.

A Chinese woman hands you a shot of herbal tea with an otherworldly caffeine and other stimulant content. It's known to keep people awake for days. That worked!!!! Suddenly you feel back to normal.

And so you do more rocks.

First rock, you feel calm and relaxed. Probably more so than you have in a while.

Second rock, you feel down and depressed. Eh screw it. Let Slidehammer win.

Third rock, you feel tired and drowsy. Maybe a nap might be in order.

Absorbing Order from a tree knocks you out. It pushes you over the edge. You're over-Ordered.

It occurs to you that maybe you should try using the weapons one at a time. Do Chaos, do Order, do Chaos, do Order, etc.

Working yourself up into anger makes you feel better. But it's difficult.

Being out in the sun makes you feel slowly better.

OOC: no problem. Gives me a chance to experiment and figure out some of the details of how Order/Chaos magic work.

IC: The next time I'm at the forge, I use the knife to heat the iron, and use the hammer to cool the water for quenching the iron. Not being a blacksmith in real life, I don't know what else would be appropriate uses, but I use create heat and appropriate Order magic when I smith. For one session. Then I go back to normal practice. No sense in using magic when I really don't need to. The purpose of this was more to study what affect it has on me.

Reflecting on the deaths of the animals, I wonder if it may have been radiation poisoning, and search the mammal's body for evidence of radiation burns etc. Then I ask the Doctor if he knows of the element Radium, Uranium or anything like that. And if he has any device that can detect radiation, such as a Geiger counter.

If he has such a device, I use it to check the glowing objects and the dead animals.

If I find that any of the items is radioactive, I use my Hammer and attempt to add Order to the effect of reducing or removing the radiation.

If the glass was not radioactive, I use my hammer to make balls of glass, and my knife to set them aglow, and let it be known that I will sell them for a reasonable price.

With my hammer, I attempt to create a sphere or circle of space through which people would be able to walk and exit at another location within my view. If I manage to create anything, I toss a glowing rock through the Portal-thing.

Doing it for a long time wears you out. But oscillating between Order and Chaos offsets that a bit. You feel like you could go longer doing it that way.

Doc Baker does not have anything to detect radioactivity. What he does have are some samples of mildly radioactive ores. They might give him cancer in 20 years if he keeps them in his pocket all day everyday. Looking through your knife, you see that the radioactivity Chaos is remarkably different from any other you've seen. You feel comfortable that you could identify radioactivity looking through your knife.

Nothing glowing is more radioactive than the bulb on your flashlight.

Doc Baker asks you to take a look at a patient of his. Not everybody wants to be healed with magic. Some still go to the doctor. Looking through your knife, you see sickness Chaos. Also completely different from any other.

Between the two of you, you decide he should try some of the penicillin he's growing.

I let Doc Baker know about the dangers of radiation, but also how I. The in the right amounts, the right kinds of radiation can be used to treat cancer patients. It poisons them, but also the cancer- and the cancer often dies first.

Having made metal arrowheads, I try my hand at glass arrowheads. I use flaking methods rather than heating the glass. I use look through my knife to see how to increase their Chaos.

Paying attention to what kind of windows people have, if I can make better glass panes, I do, and I sell them. I use my Hammer to add Order to them to make them very clear and smooth.

If this works, wearing just swimwear, I Order charge up and find a pool of water and attempt to teleport 30 feet above the water, and then as fast as I can teleport to the surface of the water.

You teleport over the water and fall into it. The weight of the hammer drags you down. You cannot teleport and must swim out of the water.

Getting back on dry land, you experiment with teleporting short distances, and come to find out that you can only make one teleport about every minute. You just can't do it any faster than that.

You complete your blacksmithing and copper working projects at 100 days. With all of your experimenting, it took longer than anticipated. But you raised your skills.

The nuns at the asylum hold a ceremony as you heal the last patient there. Every single person in town shows up for it. There's a huge potluck banquet. People are dressed in their Sunday finest. You are the BMOC. Everyone wants to shake your hand and applaud you.

Therefore let us all join together in prayer. I ask that those who are able, please stand with me. Join hands with your neighbors, raise them above your heads giving glory to God on high as we pray aloud together. Repeat after me:

"Lord God, Yahweh... In one voice pray... Bless us and our descendants... Bless the town of Mankato... Give Mankato Just, Wise and Merciful leadership until the end of the world... Give Mankato peace and prosperity until the end of the world... Protect Mankato from those who would wish to harm the residents of Mankato... Let Mankato be an example to the whole world of the wonderfulness of life lived out of love... Fill the hearts of those in Mankato with empathy, charity, and openness. We pray these things together and in the name of Yahweh... Amen

"Now, those who are able, repeat after me as I pray in Greek,"


I suspect I may be praying alone, but I repeat the earlier prayer in Greek.

I quietly look into the government of Mankato. Is there a governor? Is there an election soon?

Re: Supercharacter Scord
OOC) You mean you would...... If not for that pesky E.L.E. botch.

You finish your speech. Everyone starts applauding. And as they do, the world begins to dissolve away. Like the colors on a painting running. Until you are left in a gray environment. No up, no down, no sideways. It's just the purest shade of gray that could exist.

And before you are four chess pieces. The black and white king and queen. Six feet tall. And somehow you just know that these are the gods of Order and Chaos.

They speak. "That world was created by us as a means to slow Slidehammer. And to test your worthiness. None of it truly existed. Only you and Samantha were truly there. It did not exist in any sense that you would be able to comprehend. You have proven yourself worthy to wield Order weapons. Now go."

And before you can even consider saying or doing anything.......
