Dwig grabbed the glass of whiskey, checked his watch, ate the rest of the chouta and finally summoned his Shardblade. He mumbled something sounded like "Scadrial Gotspy" and cut his way through the wall onto the street.

He didn't pay and had taken the whiskey with him.

Awww don’t destroy it again! I like this place! :P 

 

It's probably bad you had to say "again"

You're actually the worst, Ark.I just got that door reconstituted! Do you know how much the spendthrifts charge for that stuff? A LOT! Can we say that this thing never showed up in the Tavern please?

No, sorry, I need to attack a random civilian location.

Plus Dwig just cut a hole through the back of your wall.

A hole in the back of my wall is one thing, a monster invading is a whole different story. 

Plus, I don't exactly trust that your choice here was random after the whole Waiter incident.

Unless there's a story reason why it has to be this location, I'd ask that you try to respect the wishes of the creator of the thread.

It is attacking a heavily populated building, and I don't want it just doing a bunch of NPCs?

Also, Invo, it very much was random, I even tried to think of an alternative thread

But is there an actual story behind what's about to happen, or is this simply atmospheric combat? I know that killing some random NPCs might not seem as dramatic but it's also not going to irritate people whose characters are being dragged into a plot against their will, especially if there's not a particular purpose behind it.

A loud screeching sound, like nails on a chalkboard a hundred times, fills the tavern.

Some of the patrons cover their ears, in pain.

Suddenly, a human skull, surrounded by red transparent liquid, broke through the door.

Small tentacles broke through one by one, eack with random bones within. Then the door exploded.

Something similar to a mistwraith, but redish, and made for violence, broke through. It was huge, at least five times human size. Some of the bones inside were burnt, melted, or broken. It opened the mouth of the skull, and massive fangs became visible. It screeched louder, the same sound resonating. The sound came from behind the tavern as well, and the sound of breaking glass can be heard from upstairs. Bodies covered the street behind the creature, bitten into, destroyed. A nearby building was in flames.

Bel woke up with a start to the loud screeching sound. She smelt the smoke.

"damnation" She exclaimed, realising they were being attacked. She stood up and realised she was wearing nothing more than her shifts and sighed, putting on her armoured robes and Aon Daa gloves. She woke up Alson.

"We're under attack." She told him

"damnation" He replied. Taking his weapons and jumping climbing out the window onto the roof. He quickly set up a zipline from the tavern to the building across from it and got into a vantage point there. He assembled his rifle, the wooden stock engraved with the letters Ati's hand. He sighted at the monster, loading in an armour piercing round and fired.

Bel got downstairs as she heard the gunshot. She nearly vomited from the stench of blood but managed to regain her composure. She punched towards the creature and her gloves flashed, a concussive blast was emitted from her fist, being sent straight towards the skull.

Nuemark downed 3 shots of whiskey before summoning Dark. He launched four tables at the evil-wraith with fifteen bindings each before they connected with the monster. Then he rushed forward, shardblade held high.

Maxwell turned around and saw a skull with tentacles attacking people, so he did the natural thing and started firing his revolver at the creature.

The bullets were absorbed, untouching. It wrapped around the table, moving past it.

Then the concussive blast hit. It's skull shattered, and it screeched again. It lashed forward, a tentacle wrapping around Maxwell's leg and pulling him closer, another gripping the hand holding the shardblade. It screeched again, and it was answered by the same sound upstairs.

Malu raised his hand, sucking in Stormlight, using his Illumination to manifest a series of attacking figures around the creature, hopefully distracting the thing.

Because that's a thing that works. :)

Probably.

We actually have a WoB about this. Theoretically it would work, but it requires way too much Stormlight to actually be usable.

It screeched, throwing Maxwell at the nearest illusion, whipping tentacles at the others. They blurred as the tentacles moved through them, and it ignored them. It moved towards Malu, then threw Nuemark at him. Crashes sounded from upstairs, and a screech.

Malu ducked behind the bar, suddenly realizing that he probably should have thought this through more and hoping to the Heralds something else would draw the thing's attention while there was still some tavern to rebuild.

"AAAH! Shattering glass that hurt!" Maxwell said then he saw the creature distracted and pulled out his carbine rifle and shooting at it wildly.

The creature screeched, grabbing Maxwell's limbs and throwing him out the broken door.

Nuemark jumped back and threw one of those new-fangled pipe bomb things into it, already lit. He chopped at the tentacle and bound himself away again. The other three tables connected.

The tentacle severed, becoming a burning white. It hit the ground, and sizzling sounded.

Hey invo, what is the floor made of?

Spoiler

Wood

The bones fell into the now ashen hole, and fire began to spread quickly from the coals where the floor had been.

Spoiler

Stone

Splashes of molten rock flew, and when the smoke cleared, the bones were fused into the now melted stone.

Mostly wood, closer to the bar, since I believe that's where the creature is. If it's closer to the door, though, it'll be stone.

Tels jumped up in surprise as soon as the... thing came through the door. He began controlling large blasts of sand, coupled with smaller, blade-like ones, about 25 ribbons all together. They began to bludgeon and slice the thing with incredible precision and skill, severing one tentacle, which immediately caused destruction wherever it landed, and damaging a few others. Others in the tavern began to attack it as well, but the thing somehow still stood, despite the incredible force of the combined attacks. Sheesh, Tels thought. You just can't seem to find a good bar these days. Tels casually walked over to the bar, took a pitcher of water, along with a couple of coins left on the counter, and began to drain it while his ribbons continued to attack the monster.

The pipe bomb went off inside the creture.
