Skinning the angels

3 posts in this topic

4,500,000 Years Ago...

... they turned the corner in the Mortuary of Adamant, fanning out into a wide chamber, surrounding a being. A monster. A demon.

An angel.

"Hold!" the Surgefolder said, casting Stress-Energy Tensor Manipulation, binding the angel in place.

Then the Allolurgist flashed a Coinspike bomb at the thing, flaying it.

Hidden underneath its apparent skin was another mass of skin. "Fools!" the evil creature shrieked. "You will never reach my true..."

A Sandmistress slammed the thing with her power. ripping off the kandra shell. Now, a writing mass of insect-like entities composed a humanoid form, which cackled.

"Still, you cannot...!" it began to say, until a Shardfriend used Spiritcasting to Soulvoid the hiveling.

With the insects gone, the host of wizards and sorceresses confronted what they suspected was their real foe: a carefully wrought table. The table's legs wiggled weirdly, as if incanting something with their motions. "A ChayShan attack!" the Surgefolder and Allolurgist realized at the same time.

The Sandmistress, unprepared, died as the table hit her with Ferumancy, causing her to collapse in on her own gravity.

"Fools!" the table continued to shout. "Fools, fools, fools!" No flaying-magic touched it.

The Shardfriend got a good hit in, knocking the table over. Everyone saw the symbol of Hemaforgery on its underside, and a Shadesniffer reacted with a vial of ralkalest, The bloody symbol washed off, and the table went silent.

"Whew!" Rise said, lifting herself off her floating banana-bread carpet. "I thought I was gonna have to..."

Abruptly the table burst into flames. Dragon flames.

"No matter!" the dragon screamed. "I am not only a dragon, but a Shard! The Shard of twist endings, Convolution!"

Whereupon it defeated the magic-users easily.

Hahaha, totally unexpected. Looking forward to the next 24 installments.

Maybe the next one could feature a Tropewakener or a Windrunner fused with a Skybreaker...A Windbreaker. Investiture from the spiritual realm converted to...uhm...wind that gets broken mightily...
