    If only they could find the way. The corruption seeded throughout the planet seemed to leave them in that stupour, neither living nor dead.



    Though currently preoccupied with the gathering of what ki remained independent of Auroc's curse to empower the collective effort, in his silence he remained in his state of heightened awareness of all proceedings on this planet. Railing against his expanded meditation field it was like a great ocean of subliminal noise. Still, the greater powers that roamed on the planet's surface, those who would determine its fate, stood prominently.

    "This would be the handiwork of Auroc and the Maven," he said, "I heard it from one of your Knights, they believe that serving their master will allow them to transcend their mortality...I suppose that is true, in a manner of speaking."

    The battle on the surface must have been turning to their favour if they'd found the time to come down here. Nevanlinna, and one other.



    Still seated in the throes of deep meditation, by the skill of his sublime sense he still felt a crawling sensation at his back. There in her hand, crystallized ichor, with a presence unmistakable.

    "...where did you get that?"
    "From inside Auroc. Ah saw it there so Ah spear-fished it out. He turned to black rain for a while, then he started to reform, only last Ah saw he's missing half of himself." Dash walked it over, her gloved hand holding it out to show them, "An now ah have no idea what to do with it. Was hopin' you or someone else might know."

    She narrowed her eyes.

    Was it Inanna?

    No, he wouldn't have been able to sense her energy. Perhaps Auroc.

    Neva took her mother's hand and gave it a squeeze.

    Nodded slowly, Etrina spread her hands, focusing her vast energies and then expanding it outwards. The energies flow from her to each foci, floating above the four corners of the array, who in turn mimic her actions and focus that energy down upon the Rune. "My foci will act as the array, focus our efforts.....Neva, Queen....when you are ready."
    Releasing her mother's hand, Nevanlinna nodded and took up position. Her mother was far and away better with these rune arrays than she was, so the best she could do would be to act as support. Injecting Hozon into the array to stabilize the thing was also a good idea.

    ...probably.

    Regardless, she readied herself to do her part.

    The Nevadian barely spared a glance at the slain Noble, apathetically watching his body begin it's long descent.

    Breathing heavily, the Nevadian let out a sigh of relief between breaths.

    That was a close one....

    Held scanned his surroundings, intent on avoiding another surprise. There was little time to waste, as for all he knew, yet more foes would rush forward to intercept him. Furthermore, with every moment that passed, more lives were lost, the planet was more corrupted, and Auroc's power grew greater.

    The Gold and Silver spears were gripped tight, as the spiraling power of purification hummed loudly above them.

    The Nevadian peered into the soul of the Threshling planet, seeing both the life stream, and the corruption of Auroc's taint within it. A deadly disease required a potent cure.

    SPIRALING......

    He reared back his hands, pointing the razor sharp tips of his blades, heads surging with power, towards the earth below.

    Horn......

    The spheres rotated at a feverish pace, a high pitched whining as to beg--nay, plead--for release as he prepared himself, forcing himself to go just a tad further.

    A moment passed, and he knew he could go no further, the burning white of the attack so intense as to force even him to look away slightly.

    ....PURIFICATION!

    He thrust forth his arms, and a beam of energy as wide as The Nevadian himself shot forth from each spear, twisting, turning, drilling through the air.

    The Nevadian brought the spears closer together, and the beams crossed, easily tripling in size, a massive spiral beam boring into Reshlan.

    Soon it would reach the heart of the world where Auroc's power lay, and soon it would seek to rend that wicked strength asunder with the power of it's light.

    "Well, it's not much, but I'll see what I can do," Zaofan said. "Ah, what a shame. I had to make a hard trade to get two jugs of Baradur spirits...but we'll get through this, I guarantee!"

    All he could do at the moment was monitor the situation for any changes in the planetary mantle. Hopefully what energy Ochazuke and Zaofan had gathered to intercept would be sufficient to contest the Majin sovereignty. Yet within the span of his planet-wide meditation field, the reverbe of battle shook the very leylines, and there was little sign of Auroc slowing down.

    Ochazuke said nothing in response, only silently loaning a portion of his focus to determine what, if any, effect this piece of Auroc might potentiate in the middle of his own network of spellcraft.

    Perhaps there might be something revealed from it...

    Soon it would reach the heart of the world where Auroc's power lay, and soon it would seek to rend that wicked strength asunder with the power of it's light.
    "You conduct yourself well... Nevadian," came a cool, calm voice from behind the Admiral. Suddenly, there was a power... a massive, oppressive, overwhelming power behind him, as if it had simply appeared out of nowhere. "You, however, are an invader, and I, Sefiroth the One-Winged Knight of Auroc, shall expel you and your kind, including the Infidel princess, from Holy Reshlan."

    Behind him, he would find a threshling knight, clad in black armor, and with long flowing white hair. In his hand he held a sword... a ridiculously long curved sword. Far too long for any sane man to wield, but one got the sense that this 'Sefiroth' could wield it with deadly speed, power, and precision far beyond what one would expect from its impressive length.



    "Prepare yourself!" The knight raised his hands and dark clouds formed, swirling inwards until an ominous twilight had settled upon the region...


    ...more oddly, a distinctive, almost "boss music" orchestral theme began playing just as the clouds gathered. The Nevadian would not have time to enjoy the music, however, as Sefiroth, with amazing speed, charged at the Nevadian, swinging his blade towards the Nevadian's neck.

    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    She followed his finger and found a... mysterious being floating down to meet them. His manner of dress was simple, but unrecognizable. As was his aura. Her brow furrowed in confusion. She activated Observational Focus to gain further insight into this stranger beyond what she could see and sense. "Who are you? What do you want?"

    The shrine shreds apart, and amidst the ruins, a swift and short figure darts in and punches Blizzar in the throat.

    Relaxing slightly, Dash waits patiently for Ochazuke's next response. As she waits, she looks down at the crystal with a mix of apprehension and curiosity.

    The crystal seems to be a control nexus to Ochazuke, something Auroc could use to better control the various energies he was siphoning and feeding in through his taint.

    As you realize this, a massive surge of power seems to make the entire planet shudder. Anyone who is sensing the planet and can sense Auroc’s taint in it can feel a slow but steady pulse of pure unadulterated purification.

    The leylines seem to cry out in relief as Held’s attack travels like liquid quicksilver through the energy veins of the planet, scouring away Auroc’s taint on the inside like a high power pressure washer.

    His taint remains in the air and soil, but his access to nearly limitless energy is gone, not can he siphon from his people anymore.

    The Runic Sigil of destruction remains primed however.
