    The Divine Mage

    As Itori confirmed splitting up, Gaia gripped a hand as she gave a sharp nod back. A small smirk was on her face as she listened to the kitsune explain she could delay them for quite a long time. The slight acceptance of the dragon summons had Gaia nodding as well as towards Queen Dorolth and King Apalala as they stood nearby Itori. She turned her head towards where Nenet was after Itori mentioned her, taking a deep breath before she turned her attention back to her partner. “I hope you won’t need them to keep conflict at bay, but just as a precaution to make sure that everyone is safe. And I hope you won’t need to use illusions for more than you need to.” She then quickly turns on her heels and starts to rush up to the mountain, Knight Pachua right beside her as she runs towards the mountain path.

    She trusted her companion for this job, as well as her summons. Even if she were to have trouble, they would help her out. Pachua was being her eyes and ears while the tarot mage let her feet slam across the steps of the path before it reached the slope of the mountain. She looked up to the top before she looked over to Pachua.

    “Apologies, my lady, I don’t think there’s enough room for me to travel through the trees and carry you up to the top.” The dragon hangs his head a bit.

    Gaia shakes her head and holds up a hand. “That’s fine. I can run up here enough.” She assures the dragon before she quickly his scrambling up the mountain slope steps. Despite the flat rocks, they were a bit hard to stay steady on as time had loosened the rocks in some places, but Gaia’s dancing was something that had been able to come in handy. There were only a couple times where Pachua had to catch onto his summoner's hand to make sure she didn’t fall off before she reached the top.



    As Itori sat down and began using her magic, Queen Dorolth and King Apalala stood a distance to either side of her, at her 10 and 2 respectively. They were going to do as Gaia suggested, help protect Itori to keep her from having to deal with conflict if they needed to. They were both pretty confident in the kitsune’s abilities, though, and were mostly doing it for their summoners sake. Of course they wouldn’t slack off either.

    The Queen turned her head just slightly to Itori as she hummed, having a small smile upon her face as she listened, lightly tapping a claw on her disk as she did so. King Apalala held his cup in both claws and kept his gaze off into the forest, though he was also interested in the tune that the kitsune was humming as well. Curiosity piqued his interest as to what it was that she was humming.

    Nenet's attempt at delaying those mountain scalers from advancing any further had been going well so far: she hadn't been able to stop them completely, but they were going forward at a snail's pace, constantly having to keep up their barriers so the phoenix's relentless barrage of flames didn't scorch them or, even worse, destroy their footing and send them sliding back down. She also was enjoying herself quite a bit, grinning widely as she spun and twisted to throw fireball after fireball, sometimes only using one hand and sometimes gathering a large mass of flames between her palms and launching it like it was some kind of beach ball. The flames, for the most part, harmlessly died upon hitting the stones that formed the slope of the mountain, but the people down there should be beginning to feel the heat even through their barrier as the air itself was warming up to the point of becoming uncomfortable.

    However, it looked like they weren't satisfied with just enduring Nenet's onslaught. Even as she prepared another big ball of fire to see if she could maybe cause an avalanche to descend upon these nuisances, another projectile shot through the air and pierced her other wing. Nenet let out a surprised gasp, the flames dissipating as she lost her balance. Flapping her wings fervently to regain her altitude and stabilize her flight, she was unable to react when a magic circle activated above the heads of her targets, aimed squarely at her. Her gasp was followed by a pained, sharp exhalation. One moment she was fine, and the other it felt like her body had been pierced in a myriad of places, small but numerous puncture wounds going all the way through her. Blood began to flow freely as the phoenix let out a startled cry before falling down, hitting the ground right before the shrine along with the cracking of bones from the impact. Her phoenix flames were already beginning to repair the damage, but now those competitors she'd been holding at bay were once again quickly making their way up. They'd probably reach the mountaintop before Nenet was finished healing.


    The mountaintop was relatively flat and smooth, both because of time itself and because someone clearly had gone out of their way to make it a suitable location for a structure. The shrine itself was of a simple, classic design, pillars of marble forming several concentric rings with a path leading from the outside to the middle. Arches connected the rings and formed a dome, although one with enough gaps in it to let through plenty of light. In the middle of it was the legendary sword Divinus, sought after by all who had come to this island out in the middle of nowhere, floating above a pedestal where it was held by some kind of barrier. The pedestal had been inscribed with an elaborate system of runes, meant to last for a very long time and keep people from stealing the sword.

    A larger barrier encompassed the entire shrine, faint enough that it was barely visible. It didn't appear to block the air either, the wind blowing between the pillars without encountering any resistance. However, it was still a powerful barrier, easily perceived by all who could sense magic. As such, it would probably be rather confusing that if Gaia tried to pass through she'd do so with only a slight tingling on her skin. The runes that upheld this larger barrier explained that only those who were Stroke's like would be able to pass through and that others would have to accept that it was not their fate to claim Divinus.

    Gaia would have to figure out for herself how to get through the barrier that protected the pedestal supporting the legendary weapon. The runes only spoke of some feat of either skill or intelligence required to part the barrier and claim Divinus, but no further details were given.


    Itori's humming was of an ancient song, so ancient that it had long since been forgotten by all mortals. She didn't sing the lyrics, but if she had sung them, and had bothered to do so in a language known in this day and age, then it would have spoken of a young hero who had set out to defeat a mysterious evil that lived in a gigantic forest clad in mist. At every turn the hero lost his way, wandering from tree to tree without knowing where he was going or how he would even get out. Throughout the story, he'd encounter many things within that eternal forest of mist, other people who had gotten lost and who needed his help, or secrets which had been lost. Only at the end of the song would the hero finally find the evil and slay it, at which point the mist would lift and all who had been trapped inside could leave.

    So it would also be for the raiders who had decided to claim Divinus, although Itori wasn't planning to let them escape her illusionary forest until Gaia had her hands on the sword. She also wouldn't consider herself a mysterious evil, even if she was playing the same role as the antagonist that was contained within the song.

    Unfortunately, listening to her humming was an important part of this magic, so her two draconic spirit companions deciding to focus on it meant that they were also partially affected by it, even if they weren't the focus of the spell and weren't inside the area which Itori had claimed as her own. If they looked around they'd experience the curious but problematic sensation that every direction was up: there was no way to distinguish between uphill and downhill, and it would be harder to remember directions and landmarks.

    As the three of them remained there, Itori keeping the raiders going in circles, their shouts becoming louder and louder as they violently argued with each other, a rustling would come from another direction. Some of the raiders, having been smart enough to realize they weren't making any progress, had intentionally returned to their longboat, and then made a long treck around the area in which their companions were getting lost. Having bypassed the area which Itori had turned into a maze they managed to make their way up the mountain, and noticing Itori, Queen Dorolth, and King Apalala, they had decided that it was worth seeing if killing these three would allow the rest of the raiders to continue their uphill march.

    With Itori busy keeping the illusion in place, it looked like the two dragon spirits would have to deal with this handful of raiders. While they didn't appear to possess any magic abilities, their minimal clothing revealed strong, muscular bodies, and they moved with a confidence which spoke of their combat ability.

    The Divine Mage

    Gaia managed to make it up to the top of the mountain just as Nenet crashed in front of her. She gasped as she looked at the phoenix before her. She quickly pulls out a card. “I hope my summon is able to heal you.” She says as she holds the card up quickly. “Harmony.” She says before a white and purple female dragon with her eyes closed and an extra long tail behind her emerged. She opened her purple eyes before she glanced around the area. The dragon was tall, about two and a half heads taller than Gaia at least. “Please heal Nenet, Harmony?” The dragon looked to Gaia, then towards the phoenix.

    “They seem to already be healing themselves though…? Would my healing speed it up?” The dragon knelt on the ground before Nenet and calmingly looked the phoenix over curiously.

    Gaia nodded slowly as she let Harmony take over the situation before she looked over towards the shrine. She stands up and makes her way towards the entrance of it. Her burnt sienna eyes were glittering with excitement that she was actually finding the sword! It looked glorious from where she walked from. She felt the barrier around her, and shivered just a little as she made her way to the sword. She slowed down after passing the barrier, and looked around slowly. She wanted to be sure that nothing was a trap and wouldn’t come out and suddenly whack her upside the head.

    The tarot mage didn’t realize that her other summon was outside at first. He was peering in, not making a move to enter the barrier. Gaia only thought that it was because he was too big or didn’t want to disrupt the magic in there. She looked over to the runes and blinked a little at what they said. “What does it mean to be Stroke’s like…?” She murmurs to herself. She was trying to study the runes a bit, honestly unsure how to get to the sword and hesitantly put a hand out towards it, wanting to touch the outer side of the barrier.



    As the dragons were affected by the humming, they were a bit startled by the area around the clearing looking a little topsy turvy to them suddenly. Though, both of the dragons seemed to stop listening as they heard something that didn’t seem like it was their summoner. Multiple steps. They glared in the direction that the new presences were coming from.

    Queen Dorolth held out her disk before letting it fall to the ground. It crashed into pieces and buried itself into the ground before the pieces made their way towards the new presences. “King Apalala…”

    “Don’t worry.” He started to smell strongly of cucumbers before he tilted his cup upside down and let the rush of water come out of the cup and rushed towards the potential threat that was vikings. He seemed unimpressed as he was doing this. Of course the smack of the water knocked them back a bit, but they seemed to have some fight in them. Queen Dorolth seemed to sneer before her vines shot up out of the ground and shoved some of the vikings back as well, even spiking some of their limbs with the vines.

    Nenet let out a groan before opening one eye to look at Gaia, raising one hand weakly. "'Sup?" While her choice of words was nonchalant, it was clear that she was in a bad state after being hit by the attack that had knocked her out of the air. It was fortunate that her phoenix flames kept her from bleeding to death, and by the time Gaia had summoned Harmony and the dragon moved closer to tend to her Nenet was already looking like she was no longer about to faint, even if she was still covered in blood and her wounds hadn't closed yet. "Hey there beautiful, mind patching me up? Normally I wouldn't ask, but we're about to have company and I think your summoner is busy with her own thing." Gaia had already passed through the outer barrier and entered the shrine proper, so Nenet together with Gaia's two summoned dragons would be left to defend against the three outsiders who were coming to claim the blade.

    And indeed, it wouldn't take much longer before three figures flew up from the mountainside and landed on the summit, one of them using magic to slow down their descent so they wouldn't have to worry about fall damage. One of them was male, the other two female: the male one was in the lead and was shorter than the other two, dressed sharply in a stately, shamrock green robe, but also of a stout build. He wielded a staff which looked like it belonged to a lord more than a wizard, crafted of finely carved hazel with the tip shaped into the appearance of an owl, each eye a polished piece of lapis lazuli. Thin lines of gold spiraled up the length of the staff and adorned the feathers of the owl in a lifelike pattern, making its plumage glimmer in the bright sun that hung above.

    The two female companions were dressed in a more pragmatic fashion, dark fabric hugging their frames to not interfere with their movements and leather reinforcing the joints of their clothes to increase durability. However, the person who designed these outfits had clearly also meant for them to be visually appealing: a belt around the waist helped emphasize how their hips flared out underneath, the collar was cut low to reveal part of their cleavage, and subtle, flowing decorations of a slightly lighter shade than the surrounding fabric would draw eyes towards their shapely legs and their slim figure, right up to the underside of the chest.

    One of them was wearing a hooded cloak over her outfit, the colour akin to the night sky with a silver clasp holding it together at the base of her throat. She was holding a staff of lacquered redwood with a rich brown hue, straight and unblemished. At the tip, a peridot teardrop was solidly held by twelve wooden talons.

    The other had doubled down on the practicality of her outfit by adding a pair of gloves and boots, the leather of which reached up to her elbows and knees and secured with clasps. Lines of bronze reinforced the leather, with caps adorning the knuckles of the gloves, and the heels and noses of the boots. Her weapon was a spear with a long, maple shaft. The tip was made of bronze, the edge flat despite being exposed to the sun. A deviation from the standard design, however, was the sharp hook that extended from the shaft at the base of the speartip, pointed downward as the woman leveled her spear at the phoenix and the two dragons guarding the shrine.

    The man stepped forward and raised his staff, puffing out his chest in pompous indignance as he proclaimed his demands. "Halt! I am the Right Honourable Viscount Shawn of the House Connal, son of The Right Honourable Earl Darrot of the House Connal! You may address me as Your Lordship, or Lord Connal!" While the man was busy introducing himself, and completely failing to say anything about his companions, the other two remained silent and kept their eyes on the mythical figures in front of them. The one holding the spear was balanced on the balls of her feet, her eyes focused, while the other had a more relaxed posture but her staff was slightly leaned forward.

    "The legendary blade Divinus was gifted upon humanity by the gods themselves as an acknowledgment of our nobility and grace! Only those of noble blood are allowed to wield it!" The man ignored Harmony, Nenet, and Pachua as he instead fixed his eyes on Gaia, speaking loudly enough that she would hear him. "In the name of House Connal, I am claiming the sword! You, who consorts with beasts and monsters, have no right to it! Apologize for your transgressions, and I shall allow you to leave this place in peace!" The look on his face was arrogant, clearly believing his offer to already be generous and merciful.

    Nenet snorted as she slowly pushed herself back to her feet. "Thanks. I owe you one." She shot Harmony a grateful grin before turning her attention to the nobleman. "Boy, does he have a mouth on him." While she was no longer stuck crawling on the ground, she'd still wait and give herself some more time to recover. It'd be up to either the two dragons or Gaia to answer Lord Connal's claims.


    The barrier was smooth to the touch and felt neither cold nor warm, like room-temperature glass. There was a faint humming at the edge of the consciousness, barely perceptible to human ears. While touching it didn't cause anything to happen, trying to push through it would quickly prove to be fruitless.

    Further studying the runes would reveal additional information, but only if Gaia was familiar not only with modern readings of the runes but also with more traditional interpretations. Stroke hadn't been a sage or a scholar, but for the sake of protecting the blade a lot of effort had been put into this shrine and the runes that sustained the barriers.

    The modern reading of the runes was "Those who possess great skill can claim the blade most divine from the pedestal." A more ancient reading, however, would yield "The blade will yield to those who have the ability to sever heaven from earth."

    A second look at the barrier might also allow Gaia to notice that there was an intentional flaw in its design. At the height of the top of the pedestal, there was a line, ever so faint, which ran around the circumference of the barrier. The line was thinner than a hair, and even after you saw it once you might just lose track of it after blinking.

    To sever heaven from earth: to disable the barrier one had to slash horizontally through that line as if severing the air from the pedestal. However, given the thinness of the line, the cut had to be precise, straight as an arrow's flight with no hesitation or deviation. A single, decisive Stroke, matching the skill of the one who had held that name once and who had placed Divinus here, to ensure it could only be claimed by one who could be considered a true heir to one of the greatest swordmasters to ever live.

    Of course, once you knew that the trick was to divide the barrier into two parts, one covering the height of the pedestal and the other reaching to the heavens above, you could probably think of some other methods to achieve the same effect.


    As Itori was tied up keeping the majority of the raiders from climbing the mountain slope she was limited in her ability to ward off attacks from those few vikings who had been smart enough to move around the forest of illusions. It wasn't exactly impossible, but she'd have to divert her attention, which would cause her illusion to lose some of its complexity and create gaps for the vikings to slip through if they knew what they were doing. As such, she'd have to leave it up to King Apalala and Queen Dorolth. Not that this was a great concern: she was quite confident that these two dragons could handle a bunch of humans, no matter how physically robust they were.

    The fact that the two dragons now had something else to focus on than Itori's humming also meant that up and down started to make sense again. Although Itori herself couldn't help but have her nose twitch as it was assaulted by the scent of cucumbers, fresh but also quite strange given the circumstances.

    The raiders were met with a wave of water as they advanced on their target, and they cursed as they were pushed back. Being used to fighting against the waves as they entered or left their longboat their strong legs allowed them to anchor themselves, resisting the flow and slowly resuming their advance, each step deliberate as they planted their feet as if planning to take root.

    The vines, however, pushed them off balance again, leading to more cursing as they felt the sharp thorns cutting their skin. Their durable bodies, however, once again allowed them to persevere: the vines failed to pierce their muscles, and after being caught off guard they lashed out with their weapons, axes and swords, to cut through the vines.

    One of them released a fierce roar as he leaped forward, barbarian longhair trailing behind him as he brought his axe down in an attempt to split open Dorolth's head. Given that Apalala had already revealed himself as the one to produce the water, he'd correctly deduced that it must be the other dragon who was responsible for the vines.

    The other raiders were a bit more cautious, spreading out to try and surround the two dragons while holding their weapons out in front of them. If one of them saw an opportunity they'd quickly dash forward, closing the gap to engage the dragons and the tenko in melee combat. This was hardly the first time they'd dealt with either monsters or spellcasters, and they were afraid of neither.

    The Divine Mage

    As Nenet showed she was fine to the summoner, she did give a nod of approval before leaving Harmony in charge of her. The dragon smiled at the phoenix and put her claw on her shoulder. “You can ask to be healed any time you want to.” She looked back at Gaia briefly before she nods to Nenet. “I hear our company coming. Though I feel you all can keep them at bay.” She muses before healing the phoenix with her magic. At the sight of the new ‘companions’ in front of the shrine, Harmony looked up and just stared at them. “Ah, a human showing off his glittering feathers…” She murmured as she shook her head a bit. Pachua snorted a bit as he held onto his chalice still.

    The two dragons seemed unphased by the overall outfits of the trio, clearly not their type, then he spoke.

    Pachua snorts and puts a claw in front of his mouth. “This poor man doesn’t know his place, does he? Nobility? Humans? Clearly he doesn’t know our summoner. But no where do I remember that only nobility can hold the blade. I don’t think Stroke was a noble anyways.”

    “Pachua… you claim to be a knight, behave.” Harmony had a throaty chuckle as she chastised him over his comment.

    Gaia did indeed hear the words that this ‘Lord Connal’ spoke, and simply didn’t turn around. “Thank you so much for introducing yourself first, Lord Connal. Please address me as ‘Your Grace,’ as I am of a higher status than you.” She simply calls back. She wanted to figure out what these words said. “Divinus is not a sword someone who is not fit can take by any whim they desire, especially a desire of greed. So I suggest, Lord, that you back off.” Would this man think her rude to ignore him like so by etiquette standards? Yes. She didn’t care. They weren’t in a noble social circle setting right then. But she heard his voice. He would attempt to step on her, but she wasn’t allowing this.

    She touched the barrier and had her iLac out to read the runes. She had a few e-books downloaded and was managing to decipher the old runes text. Being familiar with a few kinds of text made this a little easier for herself. She had studied the barrier and the blade and the text for a moment, then glared at her staff. She was holding onto her staff. This one had been gifted to her by her dragons before she unlocked the cards completely to protect herself till she did so. At the top of her staff was a blade, and she gripped it tightly before she took a step back and lined up the blade with that on the barrier. She knew the line was thin, and that she was somewhat losing it already as she watched it, but she needed to try.

    Glancing over her shoulder, she let her burnt sienna eyes glare to Shawn Connal and smirked. “If it is you who is deserving of the blade, why don’t you come and retrieve it?” She eggs him on. Of course as soon as he made his way to the entrance, she turned her attention back and sliced down on it.

    “Oh? He can’t get in.” Pachua had been about to dump his chalice when the man had crashed into the barrier. Gaia had turned around to see that Shawn was stuck outside, and her eyes grew wide as the two females went in after Shawn was unable to.

    “Those who are Strokes like can enter.” She began to laugh as it clicked near instantly. She quickly turned around to notice that the barrier was no longer around the sword and she grabbed the sword quickly. “Stroke was a woman!” She laughs as she held it in her hand, pointing it towards the two women in the shrine with her. She straightens her shoulders and tilts her chin up. “You said you were Viscount Shawn? I dare say, I am the daughter of Marquess Sabin. Also one of the Heirs of the Sabin Company in Bellum. I am also a Divine Summoner of the Legendary Sabin Summoners, a long line of skilled Summoners of divine status. You dare have your lackeys raise their weapons to me?” She raised an eyebrow as she kept Divinus drawn. Her voice sounded rather confident in herself and her station. “If you call back your eye candy, and apologize by kissing the dirt before my shoes when I leave this shrine, I shall forgive you for your transgressions against ME and let you leave this place in peace.” She smirked as she shrugged a shoulder, purposely throwing his words back at him.

    Though, if these women didn’t back off, she would fight if she needed to. Those few fencing lessons she took as a child come in handy sometimes, especially since she also had her bladed staff with her as well. And pair that with her superb dancing? Maybe she’d be well.



    Apalala and Dorolth were a bit relieved that the world righted itself again and did what they must to attack the oncoming men. Of course they were near immune from the water rushing at them, but the tsunami type water shouldn’t be too easy for them regardless of any progress they were making.

    Queen Dorolth tsked as they started cutting her vines, so instead of targeting the men, she let the vines target their weapons and start yanking them out of their grip, letting some vines get pressure points to release them. As the one man jumped out at Dorolth, she scoffed as King Apalala stood right next to the earth queen and focused the tsunami force water at the man as he was in the middle of jumping. Can't ground yourself in the air. The man was knocked down to the ground with the water, and Dorolths vines instantly went to hold him against the ground, arms held at the wrists and legs held at the ankles. As soon as the barbarian was disarmed, the vines at least tossed him down the mountain to keep him away from the party. His axe was given back to Dorolth and she looked at the weapon carefully. “Interesting weapon.” She commented as she held it in a defensive stance.

    Just because she was a dragon summon, and a queen of a deck, didn’t mean she didn’t know how to wield a weapon not of her deck suit. With her vines, she used the axe to push back some of the raiders when they attempted to come after them. The dragons didn’t mind how the raiders acted towards the sight of them, it was a rule to never underestimate an opponent. Their skill level is unknown. Dorolth used her vines in tandem with her borrowed axe to push the men back, and Apalala made sure to mostly use the water to keep the men somewhat rooted in place for Dorolth to use some vines on them to disarm them, or focused it on the jumpers to knock them back better.

    Nenet closed her eyes briefly as she felt the healing magic wash over her, accelerating the pace at which her wounds closed even if the blood she'd already shed didn't disappear. Rolling her shoulders she gave Harmony a grateful grin. "Thanks love. I'll have to buy you a drink after this."

    Lord Connal either was too busy espousing his own glory to listen to what the dragons had to say or simply didn't care. Either way, he ignored them as if they didn't exist, his full focus on Gaia as he confidently expected the only human adversary to accept his obvious superiority and concede the blade to him. So confident was he that when Gaia instead corrected him and pronounced herself to be of higher status than himself he actually took a step back in surprise, blinking repeatedly as if trying to process this defiance that went against all he knew and expected from the world.

    However, his arrogance wouldn't allow him to be deterred by something as insignificant as reality disagreeing with him. His nostrils flared as he glared at Gaia as if she had committed a grave offence, levelling his staff at her so the gilded owl was peering straight at her.

    "I was so generous as to offer you the opportunity of a peaceful retreat after being so brazen as to stand in my way, and you respond to my kindness with false claims and insults?" He planted the staff on the ground in front of him in a gesture which he imagined looked intimidating and assertive.
    "I see that my altruism is wasted on your ilk. Your association with these creatures already proved your rejection of all that is just, but I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. I will not make this mistake again."

    The fact that Gaia wouldn't even face him made him grit his teeth as he strode forward, treating Harmony, Nenet, and Pachua like mere statues as he walked past them and approached the shrine holding the divine blade all present parties were staking a claim on, if for different reasons. "It's pure folly for you to believe that you can instruct me on what to do! I am the Right Honourable Viscount Shawn of the House Connal, son of The Right Honourable Earl Darrot of the House Connal! Perhaps you will understand your transgressions once I have claimed the sword Divinus proper-!"

    The earl's words were interrupted as he walked straight into the barrier, his anger and his arrogance having ensured that he didn't even consider the possibility that he couldn't pass through. Fortunately for him, the barrier merely stopped him, but his face coloured red from anger, confusion, and humiliation as he realised what had happened. "You-! What-?!" He sputtered as his two guards did manage to walk past the barrier, the one wielding the spear shifting her gaze between the four potential enemies while the one wielding the staff seemed more curious about the staff itself, and the fact that her master was halted by it whereas she had barely felt anything while passing through.

    "Stroke... a woman?!" Lord Connal's eyes went wide before his face turned a deeper red. "Preposterous! Stroke was a legendary swordsman, without peer! So great was his skill that even the divines acknowledged him and gifted him with the most magnificent blade ever forged! To claim that he is in any similar to a blasphemous wench like you is an insult to his memory!" He took a step back so he could point at Gaia with his staff once more. "I don't know what trickery you performed to prevent me from claiming what is rightfully mine, but your bluffs and your deceptions won't save you! Whatever claims to greatness you might have had, you abandoned them the moment you consorted with these creatures!"

    "Hasta! Deal with her! Virgam and I shall take care of her foul minions!" The spear wielder nodded as she remained in the shrine while the staff wielder retreated to rejoin her master, turning to face the two dragons and the phoenix.

    Hasta stood balanced on the balls of her feet as she studied Gaia, her bronze spear levelled and at the ready. After several seconds of analysing her opponent, the lancer moved... and suddenly she was standing right in front of Gaia, her spear shooting forward in an attempt to pierce the mage's midriff. One might believe that she must have used magic to close the gap that quickly, but the truth was that this spearwoman was simply that fast.

    The one who designed her outfit might have divided their attention between practicality and aesthetics, but Hasta herself was all business.

    Her thrust was fast and decisive but didn't extend as far as her spear's length could have allowed for. The reason for that was that after the thrust Hasta would twist her spear to try and catch Gaia's weapon with the hook attached to the side, then pull the spear back with a surprising force in an attempt to disarm her opponent.

    Nenet cracked her knuckles as she trusted Gaia to take care of the guard with the spear while she faced Lord Connal and his magical guard together with Harmony and Pachua. "You guys back me up, I'm going in first." With those words she took a low stance before shooting forward, flames erupting from her fists as her wings left behind blazing trails.

    Virgam, the guard wielding the staff, looked at Nenet's advance and lifted her staff. The peridot at the tip glowed, and between herself and Nenet, a shimmer filled the air as if a heat haze had manifested without warning. Being a phoenix Nenet wasn't deterred by the threat of heat, but as she ran into the shimmering area she didn't feel any warmth. Instead, Harmony and Pachua would see that the spirited phoenix's charge came to a halt despite the fact that her legs were still moving. Somehow Nenet was running at full speed while remaining in place.

    Realising that the distance between herself and her target wasn't decreasing Nenet stopped running, instead stretching out her arm and releasing a wave of flames from her hand. From her own perspective, it was an impressive blaze, but for everyone else in the area, it would look like the flames didn't even extend one meter from her taloned fingers.

    Virgam held her staff in Nenet's direction, the peridot still glowing even as she shifted her eyes to the two dragons. Lord Connal only gave Nenet a dismissive huff before turning his attention to the other two monsters as well, pointing his staff at Harmony.

    "Disable that one first. The sooner we can get rid of this rabble the better."

    Virgam nodded and lifted one hand towards Harmony, the same glow that the tip of her staff was emitting now also forming between her fingers. From her hand a shimmer shot towards Harmony at high speed, the projectile invisible except for how it left a distorted trail in its wake. If not dodged, however, the dragons and the phoenix would find that this projectile had tremendous penetrative power, as it would pass straight through flesh, stone, and steel without slowing down, leaving a very clean hole behind.


    The raiders tried their best to keep a firm grip on their weapons, slashing at any vines that came close enough to be a threat to them once the first two had lost their weapons to Dorolth's verdant lashers. The combination of having to push back against the water and strike at any vines that came close enough meant that they were only advancing very slowly, but for all their cursing and swearing they didn't appear discouraged in the least.

    The one who had tried to close the distance with a jump was quickly disposed of, Dorolth's vines and Apalala's water disarming him and throwing him far enough away that he wasn't involved in the fight any longer. Even more so because he'd ended up within the area which Itori was controlling with her illusions, so even as he recovered from the fall he'd find himself unable to go anywhere other than back towards the beach.

    Dorolth's inspection of the weapon would make it clear that it didn't contain any unusual properties. It was surprisingly well-made, however, even if the design clearly was geared towards warriors who relied on raw physical might to deliver destructive strikes with no concern for finesse. It was also quite heavy, heavy enough that anyone who wasn't used to sitting at the oars for hours on end in a longboat might find it unwieldy.

    With one of the raiders having been removed from the fight the others were moving more cautiously, and seeing that Dorolth was able and willing to use their weapons against them they decided to change their tactics. Most of them remained in place for now, focusing on cutting down anything that came close to them, but one of them would let out a roar as he charged the vine-controlling dragon at surprising speed, as if the water didn't deter him at all. A closer look would show that there was another man behind the first one, pushing him forward so the two of them could overpower the tidal waves that Apalala was summoning to close the gap. Both of them had also tossed away their weapons to avoid Dorolth grabbing those as well, instead relying on their fists to strike at anything that got too close to them and even displaying enough physical power to ripe vines out of the ground.
