A rapid fire of howls and yelps erupted from the beast as the malicious attack continued while it struggled in vain. Its bodies weakened from the prior combat it was only able to lightly scratch the material of Velfur's hammer.Granite Stoneheart wrote:The Yoroi fell in a violent twist as a blown out knee forced it down and the blow to the head forced it back. Nagnar ended up landing in a roll just behind it which brought him back to his feet. He turned and ran back at the Yoroi, axe raised to smash into it's head again. Meanwhile, Velfur raised his hammer again and began smashing at the Yoroi's hip and abdomen with fierce strokes.
"Don't...Mess...With...Our...SISTER!" Velfur said to punctuate his hammer smashes.
The Yoroi moved forward to meet the blow. Gilgamesh's blade cut into the metal around its skull. The Yoroi intended to continue his motion forward, pulling himself into close combat but stopped, its attention elsewhere on a tower of water.Zatch wrote:In the mean time, Kai had time to recover Gilgamesh and was prepared to retaliate as soon as his opponent was back down. It had one knee out, one eye gone and was without full range of motion in it's arms. A soon as he had a clear line of sight, he went for it's one good eye...Sevrina wrote:As they flew back, Sevrina wrapped her arm around the Yoroi's neck and turned on her side. Instead of being smashed against the wall, she braced with her feet, let her knees give a little, then pushed off with all the strength she could muster. She winced as she could feel muscles straining and tearing, but she was no stranger to pain. As long as she could walk, she would fight. The Yoroi was propelled back down to the ground.
Faiza instructed his soldiers to brace for the impact in a language foreign to Lodoss. Most of the quick and strong Yoroi impaled the earth with their clawed feet and tails. Faiza stood at the head of the falling tower of water and awaited it. He cocked both of his arms back and waiting a moment before the water struck.Little Knight wrote:Azala frowned, using Sylph to move in front of the forward moving Yoroi. Well, if they were just going to ignore him, he would make himself well known. Apparently they weren't totally immune to magic. And if air did that much damage, he wondered how well water would fair. Raising his index and forefinger to the front of his face. "King of water, Maris. Come to me! Reveal the contract that you and I have made!"
He had never summoned Maris, but he was doing his job. Take these metal abominations out. Opening his eyes, he beheld the king spirit before him. "Alright Maris, destroy these creatures of darkness with your crushing waves!"
Anyone near Raiden Bay would have been in awe at what they would see. A pillar of water shooting skyward, then ground ward at the group led by Faiza.
The Yoroi struck the water with both fists. A strong shockwave exploded out from his muscles and against the water. The water seemed to explode around them but none the less flowed near full force around the anchored Yoroi tribesmen…
A moment of shock over took the Yoroi as it saw something besides Thangroth. The dwarf's axe tore through the softer layer of metal around its neck and tore through flesh and bone…singularityman wrote:The creature was worse off than the young dwarf had guessed, but Thangroth's thoughts of battle were spurred on when he heard Granite's name shouted amidst the fighting somewhere. Grimacing from his still bleeding shoulder, the red-haired dwarf was pulled down towards the beast as it caught his leg with it's good arm. But, in the beast's desperation it had given Thangroth an opportunity. Taking advantage of his smaller size and the fact he was on top of the beast, the Dwarf got up from his prone position and swung his axe at an angle. Gripping the axe handle with both hands solidly as he put all his strength and weight behind it. Aiming for the creature's under chin, the dwarf hoped if not to sever the creature's head to cause a near-fatal injury on the beast.
The Yoroi nearly froze in place as he saw the pillar of water. He had stopped after the spin and watched with his guard down towards Azoth as the pillar of water crashed not too far ahead and water flowed down the streets…singularityman wrote:Azoth ducked under the tail and now that his sword was freed from the monsters grasp he had his full mobility again. The only problem with ducking under and back like he had meant he was not in a position to strike back. Doing a quick spin he readied his sword for his next attack, but the sounds of water rushing around was not the normal sounds of battle he was used to.
