Day Three: First Wave

These are the old posts from the original Eiyuu Kishi Den, dubbed “The Chaos War” (no relation to another Lodoss website). This RP ran from June 2001-2004. Regrettably, I deleted all the old group posts, though I did save them in archives, they are out of order. I will not attempt to make these continuous, it's far too much of a hassle.

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.
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.

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.
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...
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.
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.
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.

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…
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.
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: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.
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…

"Stupid beasts don't even know when they're dead!" Kai shouted in frustration as his sword failed to cut through the armor plating once more. And with Sevrina still grappled it like a wild horse Kai's options were limited as to what he could do to it without putting her in danger. The knight channeled his aggression and balled his armored fist. Kai's back was at the tower of water, so he didn't see whatever had distracted the Yoroi nor did he waste time to find out.

Kai summoned all his strength and used his free hand to punch the creature directly in the throat. It was a blow that could put a fatal crimp on the larynx, but at this point he only hoped it would stun the yoroi long enough for Sevrina to make her move.

Sevrina hung by one arm and knees gripping the Yoroi's side as she drew a fist full of daggers from her boot top. She then swung back up and jammed a dagger into the remaining eye as deep as it would go and hopped off it's back onto a wagon sitting in the street. She yanked her whip from her belt and prepared to use it if Kai's punch and her stab in the eye didn't drop it.

Azala smirked, water surrounded the Yoroi. They have have slowed down the flows, but the King Spirit Maris was still summoned. "Maris, I beg you stay a little longer. And let us create a watery grave for these creatures!"

As he said this, the water continued to flow, enveloping the Yoroi that he braced for impact, and forming a pillar of water. But it wasn't done. The pillar began to swirl, and soon enough was a whirlpool. With water all around them, the Yoroi would either drown, or let go and try to escape, and be thrown into the whirlpool. Faiza, who had foolishly tried to stop a King Spirit's power, was first, his body dragged into the whirlpool. The king spirit kept him there, sending water into its lungs forcibly, and drowning the creature. "Let go, hold on, it doesn't matter! You're FINISHED!"

The Yoroi howled as the blows struck its throat and eye in the same moment. The scream died away as its throat crumpled in on itself and the body slumped back leaving Sevrina and Kai in safety.

Faiza struggled against the tower of water he was trapped in. He clenched his jaws shut but he knew he could only hold his breath and keep up the struggle for so long. However he continued until he heard the voice. Sacrifice yourself for your God. Vesper's, the Lord of Sky entered into his mind. Sacrifice.

Vesper had thrown Cray down after he had been struck. Through Cray would require all his attention a Spirit King could not be ignored. Vesper had raised his fist in the air, concentrating his power towards the pillar of water that had crashed and began flowing towards the first wave of heroes.

Though the first wave of the Yoroi army were still standing they were completely consumed in water that continued flowing at them at full force. Behind them the water began to slow as it hit buildings and stone, only entering into the battleground as a small shin hitting waves.

Vesper spread his fist and commanded the power of the Sky into a single blow from the dark heavens. The "Hammer of God," a lightning strike from the heavens targeted Faiza and struck the artificial river of water that now had flowed into the first battlefield. The lightning spread from the point of impact through the entire body of the water. Electrons burst through each and every Yoroi left in the water and the battlefield around the first wave. The water and metal of their bodies allowed the lightning to flow freely through their bodies and continued over the first battlefield…

One of Aiden's air and fire propelled arrows hit an oncoming wyvern between the eyes, killing it instantly. It's rider tried desperately to control the falling beast, yet it still steadily sailed downward and directly into the building Naclia, Orion, Luria, Aiden and Aaewin were on.

"Oh SHIT!" Naclia cursed as she saw it coming. There was no time for a spell. The building crumbled beneath them and sent them falling to the ground. Naclia gripped her bow preciously as she fell back and twisted in the air like a cat. "Sylph! Spirit of the Wind! Give us a soft place to land!" she called to the spirits in desperation. Just before hitting the ground, Naclia fell into a soft blanket of air.

Aiden flew backwards as the wyvern hit the building and as he fell, he saw his life flash before his eyes. This would be the end of him, he would probably fall in the rubble and break his back or snap his neck, or get buried. And there wasn't time enough to do anything. Yet, through some miracle, he landed on pad of air. He glanced to either side of him and saw his companions had all landed safely as well.

Luria fell with the building into the soft pad of air provided by the spirits. "Thank you sylphies," she said, but her spirit was no longer as high as it had been. They were on the ground now, a much more compromising position. Now to mention that she suffered a few bonks on the head even with the sylph's help. "Hey," she said to her comrades, "Should we find a new perch or go join the fighters? Or should we just fight it out here?"

Orion was in mid-shot when the building crumbled beneath his feet, gone in seconds. His stomach lurched horribly as he fell, the sensation strange and unexpected. Since he was sure he would feel himself crumple in a heap on the ground at any second, being caught by a cushion of air and landing safely was a shock. For a second he stood, to exasperated and confused to make a move.

Darrenii struggled over to the archers. Falling, no matter how light he landed, disoriented the old man. "We need to find new ground! We are combat dummies down here!" he yelled.

Luria shot off another Wyvern threatening to scoop up her allies like a predatory bird. She stepped in line to keep them off Orion until he recovered and the man who had walked up to their group. "Yeah that sounds like a swell idea," she said, between shots. "You tell me when you find some place to go. Getting in another building is just asking for them to topple it again, and the Sylph aren't going to save us every time."

Aiden helped Aaewin to her feet and carefully checked her over to make sure she wasn't hurt. Wrapping a loving arm around her shoulder, he glanced to Darrenii. "That sounds like a good idea to me," he said, then looked at Naclia. "Thanks Clia."

Naclia nodded to Aiden and looked around at the chaos in the city. "DAMNIT!" she cursed and stamped a foot. "We're going to destroy the city if this keeps up!" she sighed and forced herself to calm down. "Some one check to see if that wyvern and it's rider are dead," she said and gestured toward the people with her. She couldn't wait for the chance to finally relax, but that might be months in coming, assuming they actually succeeded to save Raiden.

Aiden cast a worried glance at Naclia. She had been a wreck ever since she met Terin and maybe even before, he was worried that she was on the edge of her sanity. What his old friend needed most was a break since from what he heard, she'd been under far too much stress.

"I'll check," Aaewin volunteered and drew her short sword. Carefully, the ranger approached the fallen Wyvern and it's rider. Aiden wanted to go and comfort Naclia, but he cautiously followed a few steps behind Aaewin.
