Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
"I have been given a Drachenorden cell of six members to assist in the conflict," said General Oura. "Alas, the Drachenorden has lain dormant for too long, and their numbers are still stretched thin. We have their official support, but besides the six-man team, little else. It is, however," she smiled, "More than I was expecting."

She smiled further at Pitcarn's worries.

"Do not worry on that front. The Drachenorden are known for their stubbornness, their ability to get mixed in business they have no right to, their arrogance and their status as a wild card.. but I have been given the commanding seal from Grand Constable Dracul himself. They will obey me, or their lives will be forfeit. Odin's Tables support us. There is no ulterior motive. They are there to purge the area."

She glanced again at the map.

"And, to be honest," Oura continued. "You weren't considered, truly, in my calculations for bringing down the Last Hand. No.. I did have something else that might help. Dhelvanians. I think.." She shrugged. "When Janethus was still a young Goddess with dreams of dead lands I was her guide and lover. Now, as you know, she is Councilman and the Ambassador to the Realm Void. Even one could be enough to rattle the magic out of Tushmuthut, but they are the Conclave's greatest assets - and the rarest."

Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
Pitcarn considered the notion. Use one of the rarest of creatures that the Conclave was allied with, in an attack on a city that they may be able to break without it?

He aired his concern to Oura, but added: "It may be that they are incredibly powerful, and able to shatter the walls, but what if the life of the Dhelvanian? It would put my mind at rest if we had one, but I personally would not want to deploy it unless other options had been exhausted. However, Janethus is your friend, not mine, and it would be you that would suffer should the Dhelvanian come to harm.

"Would the Dhelvanian's power affect Mythcrafted creatures and divine power? if not, Highlord Anik may be able to assist us in battle, as a craft god, I'm sure he would be able to fill small holes in our tactical forces on the fly, if need be."

"They are intriguing, the Dhelvanians," said Oura. "We know that they can be killed - but we are not sure how, or even why. Sometimes they simply disappear. There is never a corpse. Sometimes, in battle, they can take hundreds of gunshot wounds, knifings, slashings, explosions.. and return completely intact. Sometimes it is one bullet - or even a word - that strikes the fatal blow.."

She sighed.

"There is still so much we do not - perhaps cannot - know about our friends from the Void. They may, in fact, be killed in this battle. Day certainly strikes down night, at least according to," she smiled. "Conventional mythology."

He looked down, fear on his face for the fate of his people. He steeled himself and looked back up.

"We should do whatever it takes to remove the cult from existence. Too many innocents have suffered at the hands of them. If the Dhelvanians are willing to join us, any of them, they will know the risks. This is war. The cult attacks anyone without thoughts of anyone but themselves. We know we fight for a cause greater than ourselves.

"Need we discuss anything more, or are we ready to greet our troops?"

Pitcarn wanted to smite the cult, and smite it now.

"You're.."

Oura smiled, softly.

"You're emotional. There has been great tragedy. Do not.. do not allow it to cloud your judgment, Pitcarn," she said. "It cannot help you."

Pitcarn felt the rage and the sorrow slowly ebb away, drained by the mystical forces of High General Oura. He felt better. His head felt clearer. Tears streamed down his face and Oura was stroking his hair.

"Fat Friar," she said, softly. "The God who gave you that title has passed from this world."

Pitcarn the balanced
"So he has." Max had not exactly been a friend, but his intentions had seemed honourable enough. The loss of Max was one more strike, but against whom, and how Pitcarn should feel about it, he didn't know.

"We should go, Oura. The longer we talk, the more the defenses of Tushmuthut will ready themselves. If the Dhelvanians will join us, they needn't be there from the start. We should ensure that our troops are ready first."

"Of course," said Oura. "And you are fully prepared? You need nothing else before I escort you to your Fifteenth Legion? Now is the time to speak up.. once the assault begins, once our Master Craftsman arrives, it will be difficult to step back."

"If I may, I will maintain a presence here. Otherwise... I think I am ready to go.

"Except for one thing. Oura, do you know of Khor? A Vicious God with a red knife that drips murder? I believe I and Apotheosis circle member Desafon of Perigo are just having the pleasure of meeting him."

Anik appeared here. He went up the the gate unthreateningly. "I am High Lord Anik of the Conclave, I beleive I am to be expected and brought to General Pitcarn and High General Oura."

Pitcarn

"Khor."

The word was spoken with dripping venom. It was obvious that Oura had, in fact, heard of the God of Murder, and that she hadn't been entirely impressed. She bit her lip.

"He is an unstable, religious zealot with a penchant for butchering those he comes across and a thoroughly blended sense of justice. He is a killer and the deadliest warrior that the House of Tushmuthut possesses. And he is hunting you? Pitcarn, I have read your energetics. You have experienced your first death. Perhaps that was worth it. Your second.." She shook her head. "Leave your Realm. He does not leave a foe unscarred, even when defeated. If you can destroy him.. he will take something of yours. He will mark you. It.. you are my comrade. Do not face this man."

There were tears streaming down her cheeks. Blood welled up from her bottom lip; she had bitten so hard that she had broken the skin.

"Do not.. do not fight him. Run, Pitcarn. Please. You.. must.."

She wept, and tears fell upon the stone floors.

Anik

"Of course," said the guard at the inner entrance to Fort Sah. "High Lord Anik. I trust that you have your Seal of Odin present for inspection? I apologise for the formality," he quickly added, "But the spies of Tushmuthut are tricky ones."

"You pass," said the guardsmen. "Would you care to be taken to a resting chamber - where you can check your visage, prepare yourself for the meeting? I will inform General Oura that you've arrived."

Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
Pitcarn started; he had not expected this from the General.

"Oura, please. This is worth the risk. If Khor can be detroyed, we may have the edge in the coming battle. I am not alone, either. I have an ally by my side, and help is incoming. Khor will be defeated.

"Despite my words of stregth though, your sentiments trouble me. What is it about Khor that makes you worry so? What has he done?"

Pitcarn

The tears continued to fall. Oura, High General and high-standing member of the Conclave, looked at Pitcarn with a heavy mixture of concern and dismay. Pitcarn could tell that she didn't know if he was stupid or courageous - or both. Her dark grey hair swayed softly.

Slowly, she pulled up the loose sleeves of her shirt, and showed Pitcarn the long, blood-red slashes that crossed in the dozens across her arms. The scars looked barely healed, as if they could burst open at any time, and seemed to bring Oura a great deal of pain.

"In my last.. incarnation, we faced, Khor and I," she said. "I was a great warrior, and I had broken the general of Tushmuthut, Sura Al'Amun, leaving a corpse of sand within the marble ruins of that terrible city. He came to me, livid, and we fought. I barely escaped with my life - I, despite all of my prowess, could not match him. He was ferocious." She stopped. "He was.. maniacal. We fought, and he slashed me with the Murder Knife, and my body was covered in wounds.." She looked away, suddenly.

Pitcarn knew, now, that she was ashamed.

"My body is riddled with these scars, reminders of my failure as a warrior and tactician. I have reincarnated once and experienced five deaths between those times, and each time my theoelectromagnetic field refreshes, almost entirely new - save for one feature. The scars. They never.. they never leave.."

She looked at Pitcarn, and something turned over in his stomach as he realised the full extent of her claim.

"What kind of monster.. can permanently ruin the image of the divine?"

There was a knock at the door.

Anik

"Of course," nodded the soldier. "Come with me."

He took Anik past soldiers and dining halls; past a barracks and a library; through a winding hall; until he was finally led to the door of High General Oura's chambers. The soldier knocked twice, bowed, and left.

(Pitcarn'll be told properly, tomorrow evening (in person!) that the game's on. I did mention earlier in the week that I was making efforts to revive the game, but I don't think he quite believed me.)

After Anik was done retching all over the door, he quickly scooped up the material which came out crafting it into a ball surrounding it with a carbon shell from his raw materials.

Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
(by 'effort to revive the game', I thought defibrilators and long, intense periods of looking into the patient's eyes and mouth to mouth etc. Not updates :P)

Lest the visitor should enter and see the scars that shamed Oura so, Pitcarn placed himself between the door and the General, his back to her so that she might not see the worry that crossed his face, not just at the horror inflicted by Khor, but by the trauma suffered by a being he considered a friend, despite only knowing her for a short time.

Oura's revelation had set Pitcarn's course in his mind. Khor had to be destroyed, and if he shared a bond with Oura in such a permanent marking, then the sacrifice would be worth it. His face set, he glanced over at the General to ensure she was ready, eye contact seeking approval to allow the petitioner entry.

Oura nodded, pulled down her sleeves.

"Come in," she said, her voice a little strained.

As the door swung open, however, she smiled softly to herself.

"Low Lord.. Anik?"

Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
"High Lord actually." He said though without any pomp. "Yes, I am here about the invasion. I am to observe how the conclave roughs up the cult of the sands. Though I can also offer my assistance in the form of tactical warheads if necessary.

But first there is the matter of Khor. While I have been ordered the fight, and Pitcarn refused the use of a mini fission bomb, I can do something about better equipment."
He drew an assault-weapon sized plasma rifle from the side of his pack. I made this a bit ago, but I have grown in knowledge and power since then, let me make some adjustments."

Anik's eyes went white and suddenly the gun became and exploded diagram of itself. Anik's power ran through it quickly making adjustments to better improve efficiency and to reduce the theomagnetic imprinting needed from it's creation. But his main focus was on the laser improvement. "I'm strengthening the result of the laser, since that's the least destructive in terms of area (instead all that destruction is focused), so that should be your best setting. It's only a 20% damage increase, but a 40% power efficiency, and won't overheat the gun, so it can continuously be used."

He then continued working on the battery make-up and micro-powerplant He modified the nuclear-decay driven drive with an single atomic anti-mater power plant (though keeping the crystalline divine-energy transformer). He also put in a special over-drive feature in the current battery which can only use his own theoeletromagnetic power which fortunately he didn't have to be there or even have the gun to use. He reassembled the gun and then pressed his hand to his chest suddenly creeping out from under his skin a small forest green emerald came forward, as it entered the room the simple crystal seemed to fill the room with energy, like that of a god.

He placed his energy-stone into the battery in the slot he had just made. As he pressed it into the gun the feeling of power subsided.

He quickly did a once over on his work. ((aka gm check))

Re: RP PUBLIC SAVAGE: The Sunken Jungles of Logthsah
Pitcarn watches the creation of the weapon impassively; most of the science goes over his head, but the effects interest him. If the raw energy attack is powerful enough, it may be a tipping factor in the fight.

He turned and met Oura's eyes briefly, then commented to Anik: "Well met, Highlord. I'm glad you are able to offer your assistance regarding the emergency in my realm. it is, however, not the biggest threat. It is merely a distraction from the larger and infinitely more important fight to come; our fight for Tushmuthut.

"The High General and I were just discussing some possible tactics we may use against the walls of the city, but I feel this conversation is best continued as we awaken our armies. I have no doubt we will be able to fill you in adequately. Your talents may prove a boon in the engineering side of our assault, without you ever facing direct combat."

Outa nods . "High Lord Anik, my apologies," she says. She seems sincere. "I was not aware of your promotion. Forgive me." She stares for a long while in silence. The Gun fascinates and enchants her. "It is a mighty weapon..." she sighs.

"It may not be enough. The two of you may have noticed just how... strained Conclave operations are at the moment. We are beset on all sides: by the cultists of the Sphere of Force and Fire, by the Mad, by insurgent rebels, by the death of Yggdrasil itself."

She looks at Anik. "Nevertheless, a mighty weapon indeed. Please, gentlemen; discuss tactics and strategy for as long as you need. You have my support. Do whatever it takes to secure our realms."
