A Joe in the Bush replied to Seonid's topic in Sanderson EliminationDay 7: Quicker Than Sight First of the Sun slept a sleep of resurrection. Lines of Shardic power coursed through its ley lines like blood through the veins of a living being. In the oceans, bacteria and algae churned in a vast mixing, while mosses and ferns colonized the sterilized ground. The mountains of dead flesh, not even rotting after the sterilization event that had brought this world low, were now slowly melting away. The putrescent scent was horrific, and the sight was enough to turn the stomach of the occasional curious worldhopper, but to those who had eyes to see, it meant something. Life had returned to First of the Sun. The pool of green liquid on Patji had grown slightly, though the island stubbornly resisted the few organisms that tried to survive their. Lingering radiation had left the sands nigh uninhabitable, but even here, the heart of the destruction, life was finding a way. - - - - - - - - - - - - The man who stalked the streets of Scadrial was not a vicious man, nor was he callously cruel. He was, on the whole, well-regarded. His peers knew him as a kind and generous man, and a fine upstanding member of society. He had a temper, of course, and he was a little overly fascinated with particle accelerators, but one could easily forgive something like that. And if a man had to have quirks, it was fitting that they should be so...harmless. The man was not a killer, either. He held the power to do so, of course, but many had done so in the past and many would do so in the future. Simply holding the power did not mean that one was required to use it, of course. Unfortunately for the Chameleon, today was a Friday. The man of Scadrial hated Fridays. They were spiteful things, cultivated to give the illusion of hope to a despairing mass of humanity. Not for the last time, he wondered if it was worth it to go for a clean sweep. Wipe everything out and start over. Try it again from the top. Too much work, though, and nobody who wanted to work with him anyways. Which was right about where his train of thought had stopped when the Chameleon tripped into his way, falling to hands and knees right in front of him. In a tangle of bodies and a crash of luggage, they both came down together. There was a cry of rage, a flash of light, and then the Chameleon was gone, replaced by a slightly dispersing smoke and a fine rain of ash and dust. What had he been doing again? Ah, yes. His palace in the cognitive Realm was low on Scadrian delicacies. And so on he went, leaving behind the last remains of the Chameleon. Pearl Chameleon was killed!
