Title: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII

Hey everyone.

This week was a physical and emotional whirlwind and so I really didn't get a chance to even think about the boards. I'm also busy today yet but I should be able to work on something tomorrow.

Absolute worst case scenario, I have an emergency day off work on Thursday, so if I don't have anything up before then, I should have something up then. Thanks for your patience.

Cameron! Can we please get an update? ^_^

I finally managed to get some time to work on this today, and now that I have the rough outline done, that should be motivation to keep working. Only issue is that I'm having some trouble getting everything in an order that makes narrative sense. Also struggling to determine just how much collateral damage from Ahriman's final attack would be considered "fair." I'll work on it more tomorrow.

My post is live. There's a couple things I feel that I need to clarify.

First up is the anti-magic orb that Ahriman detonated. This was an extremely rare artifact that Ahriman was saving for an emergency. It was an extremely powerful, single use item. It was enough to even lower all of Ahriman's defenses, which lead directly to him being killed. Given this, I feel that the following consequences are fair:

-All of the skeleton mages have been destroyed. RIP.

-I did not specify the fate of Danyael's remaining echoes, but it is my judgement that unless some kind of massive, miraculous undertaking occurs involving multiple characters, that they would have been destroyed as well.

-Magical artifacts were not permanently destroyed or even damaged, but they definitely should have been rendered useless temporarily. Obviously, the more powerful an artifact is, the less it was effected, so while something like Blooddrinker would have only been temporarily stunned and will recover almost instantaneously, other less powerful artifacts may take some time to get moving again. Note that this only effects MAGICAL artifacts, not technological ones. Think of this as an EMP bomb but for magic instead of tech.

-Ahriman is dead. His soul is trapped in the Book, which is still surrounded by the tesseract, as I determined that having all of the poor little skeleton mages sacrifice themselves in vain would have been unfair to Kitharsis and Danyael and also would have needlessly prolonged this stage of the fight.

-Everyone here should instantly recognize the voice of Abbadon the Despoiler, but those characters who knew Kalana from previous Board Battles (pre-Eye of Terror) will also recognize her voice mixed with his. Abbadon is otherwise completely obscured by his robe at this time.

Please let me know if anything needs clarification.

No need to worry about the Echos, as there were only two: the one who did the kamikaze run and the one who was supposedly healing Mary. And isn't the Book of Magnus still wrapped in the Everworld Cloak, which was reinforced by the tesseract?

That would have been blown off when Ahriman detonated the sphere. I'll edit my post to account for it.

It would have been blown off while still inside the tesseract? Umm... ok then. That being said, would you mind checking your pm for a small, non-battle related, request?

My apologies. Jharm and I went back and looked at your earlier post. I was mistakenly under the impression that the tesseract was around the book, and then the Cloak around that, and not the other way around. In the interest of moving on with this part of the story and to not have Danyael become seperated from one of his signature items, I've edited my post to indicate that the tesseract was briefly disabled and the Cloak was impacted and removed during that brief period. I hope my post is clearer now.

I also replied to your PM.

Hello! ^_^

It has been a week since Cameron's last post! I have sent Idle notices to the following users:

Daccio
Shadow Chorus


Kitharsis and Danyael are not yet idle as they have been active in the OOC thread. Thank you Jharm and Soul Reaver for replying promptly!

Don't forget that I cannot put Cameron on the clock until either everyone has posted or has been warned about being idle once and given a week to respond! The sooner you post, the sooner I can make Cameron post more things for you to reply to! ^_^

Hello again! ^_^

I have sent idle notices out to the following users:

Danyael

This delayed idle notice was because we were seeing OOC activity from the users listed above but it has been a week since the last OOC post and they still have not posted. We are also still waiting for posts from Daccio and Shadow Chorus! Thank you for posting since my last update, Kitharsis!

If there is no further activity between then and now, I shall return on 6/8!

Hello again! ^_^

It has now been two weeks since Cameron's last post. I have sent second Idle notices to the following users:

Daccio

Anyone on the above list is now eligible to be god-modded. Shadow Chorus, thank you for posting since my last notification! Danyael is not scheduled to receive a second notice until 6/13.

Hey Cameron! What's the plan? <_<

Hey Cameron! What's the plan? <_<

Since it would appear that everyone who I'm not already free to god-mod has posted, the plan is that I will proceed.

I'm still on 24 hour on-call until Monday, so my chances of posting tomorrow are slim. I'll see what I can do either Monday or Tuesday night.

I am extremely sorry for the delay. This weekend was a total loss due to a family situation, and I had a lot to do this week to make sure I had all my work stuff wrapped up before today. I did manage to make progress but I am definitely not done yet.

Good news is the reason for that crunch: I am now on vacation for the next 10 days. And this is a Staycation: I am not leaving the house if I can avoid it. So I should have a ton more free time to write. I'm looking to have my post finished either tomorrow afternoon or Saturday at the very latest, and I am going to attempt to use time later in the week to write a rough outline of my post after that to make sure that I don't have too much to do once I'm back at work.

Thanks for bearing with me. Once this fight is underway, keeping up with this should be easier.

This one was entirely on me, guys. No excuses. I completely forgot to finish working on my post. Got distracted by the charity gaming marathon I took this week off to see and just completely blanked on this one. Throwing up an OOC here to admit to my wrongdoing and keep Hanako from reporting me. I still have today off and have already made a promise to Jharm that I will finish my post before the day is over. He knows where I live, and so he'll make sure this happens.

My deepest apologies for fucking this one up.

My next post is live. Your opponent is Peterson. Cameron's intention is simply to slam straight into Peterson, but Peterson is going to easily deflect his attack unless Cameron gets some backup. Abbadon and the Soul Sphere are wrapped in a massive ball of chains which will actively resist being attacked.

Oh, Cameron. You were doing so well, too! ;_;

This post was supposed to mark the removal of the Eye of Terror thread from it's probation enforcement! I was going to give you a cake and everything! But now that you were almost idle for a week, I just don't think I can justify doing that. :<

But since you technically posted an OOC (and updated the thread) before I was able to put you in Step 1, I won't reset your counter back to 5 posts. I'll just keep it at 1. Make the next post on time without going idle and the Eye of Terror thread will be removed from probation! ^_^

As for everyone else, you're now free and clear to post a reply! Let's get things moving again! ^_^
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Danyael on July 02, 2018, 05:44:18 PM
Wrote the post quickly, so I'll edit it after I get home. Danyael has opted to run interference for Cameron by using his speed for a stealth attack on Peterson. He rushed from behind then, just at the moment Cameron was close enough to Peterson, slid from underneath for an upward strike by both swords. By amplifying the gravity around his swords has he added greater potential to inflict harm with every strike. This, combined with his speed has inacted a sort of slingshot strike tactic, for which he's used to attack Peterson before Cameron. Effectively, he has put himself in between the two to act as both sword and shield to Cameron, at least to give the elemental time to opt for a different tactic.

By the way, do you have any art for what Peterson might look like? Or perhaps an older description of him?
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Jharm on July 08, 2018, 05:24:54 PM
Jharm is pretty much focusing on defense at this point, bolstering and protecting the rest of the Companions so they can focus attacking Peterson

Post by: Soul Reaver on July 08, 2018, 08:06:22 PM
Apologies for the delay, I've been ill recently (still not 100%).

Soul Reaver is trying to do two things in very rapid succession:
- Get the Book of Magnus (if releasing it happens to resurrect Ahriman then too bad - at least he won't be likely to be friendly with Abaddon)
- Punch enough of a hole through the chains surrounding Abaddon that he can glance inside (I'm assuming Blooddrinker should be able to cut through them faster than they can regrow)

Assuming he manages to do the second one, he's planning to teleport inside the cocoon.  If there's some reason that wouldn't work that Soul Reaver could sense or see, please let me know - he'll change his strategy accordingly.

Post by: Kitharsis on July 09, 2018, 02:02:27 PM
Kitharsis is keeping a hair trigger on the Tesseract.

While he trusts Soul Reaver's judgement, he won't allow Ahriman to return if he's able to.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on July 09, 2018, 08:55:49 PM
Soul Reaver is going to telekinetically pull the book to himself pretty much the moment that Kitharsis opens the tesseract (though seeing as the tesseract hasn't been completely destroyed I guess he could pull it along too).

That said, Cameron will need to let us know if:
- Ahriman is still 'alive' and his presence could be felt
- If yes, whether that would be detected fast enough for Kitharsis to react BEFORE Soul Reaver seizes the book

So, will need to wait on his arbitration on that one before I can reply.

The opening of the tesseract is going to cause two things to happen simultaneously. I'll cover both in my next post. Ahriman is still alive inside the book.

Well, this is going to get interesting very quickly.

Personally I'm not sure Ahriman will be friendly with a guy who just stabbed him in the back and wants to steal his carefully-crafted rune.  Plus it doesn't necessarily prevent Soul Reaver from carrying out his own plan either.

Guess we'll find out! :D

Hello. ;_;

At Cameron's request, I have retired Daccio's character from the Epic Battle. Cameron has informed me that he will write the character out of the current fight in his next post.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Cameron on July 25, 2018, 11:12:37 PM
My post is up.

The Book of Magnus and Sepher have been removed from the Imperial Plane. A powerful warp traveler might be able to track them,. but not with a fight happening. Neither Peterson or Abbadon can access the book themselves without bringing it back.

Going to leave what happens to both the Book and Sepher open ended in case Daccio wants to write a wrap up post for her character. In the mean time, you still have Peterson to deal with.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on July 26, 2018, 04:18:34 AM
Ok, quite a lot happens in this post and some of it is dependent on other stuff, so send me a message if anything needs correcting.

Soul Reaver planned to telekinetically pull the book to him as soon as it was freed but it being grabbed by the chain ruined that idea.  However, he mainly wanted it as it might have given him an edge in carrying out his main plan.

Soul Reaver's main plan is to teleport into the cocoon the moment he gets a glance inside.
The reliability of a teleportation spell hinges on a bunch of stuff, including how close the destination is (in this case, right in front of him) and how well he can visualize the space he's trying to enter (now that he's seen inside, quite well).
Certain focussed magical interference could also cause it to fail if not overcome, though Soul Reaver's a pretty good mage.

He WAS going to teleport in the moment an opening became visible in the chains, but since Abaddon did some talking after the hole closed I've made it that he does so afterwards.

Once inside, Soul Reaver wants to wrest the same spirit energy as Abaddon is using to try and counter him/keep him busy.  Soul Reaver has soul absorbing powers too, and he'll be able to observe how Abaddon is doing it (without setting off the rune/sphere of annihilation) now.
As a secondary measure, he's also launching a surprise attack by thrusting Blooddrinker at Abaddon.

Let's see if any of the above works.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Danyael on July 30, 2018, 03:26:11 PM
Messaged Cameron, pending the approval of something. I don't think it steps on any toes, but it's a bit unorthodox, so I'd prefer to get the greenlight first.

Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Cameron on August 22, 2018, 01:35:44 AM
Congratulations, Soul Reaver. Your gambit worked. Welcome to the final phase of the fight.

Peterson is technically out of the fight for the moment, though if you want to chase after him, you may. He is not an immediate threat. Abbadon was at the epicenter of the explosion and you won't be able to sense or see her just yet.

Your next post should detail the efforts you are taking to survive this explosion, which has leveled the top of the Spire completely. Soul Reaver and Danyael will obviously have the least amount of time to react, due to their position at ground zero.

I don't believe I missed anyone, but please let me know if I did or if you have any other questions.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on August 23, 2018, 07:05:33 PM
Soul Reaver makes a point of memorizing his surroundings before teleporting - particularly in this case where he teleported somehwere that there may not have been any other way out.  As such, he's made use of that foreknowledge to quickly teleport himself AND Danyael back out to the far wall.

He's currently bodily shielding Danyael, with his back to the explosion.  However, he hasn't had time to cast any other protective spells, so unless Danyael manages to pull something out of his hat, he's going to take the brunt of the blast when it goes off.

Danyael, I took the liberty of assuming both the tackle and the teleport would work on Danyael, but if for some reason it doesn't, let me know and I'll edit.

Kitharsis decided that the turtle strategy was his best bet, even if he took a lot of damage in the end.

He's hanging from one of the exterior walls chilling out for a bit until we find out whatever happens next.

Post by: Danyael on August 27, 2018, 10:49:31 PM
Danyael made use of his wings to shield both he and Soul Reaver, with the former taking the bigger hit. It hurt. A lot. And after a tender moment of realization (D'awww! He really does care!), he's now calling out for Kith and Mary to see if they survived. I don't think any inappropriate liberties were taken, but let me know if there are concerns.

I am going to try and get a post up by Sunday night, since I'm on call again starting Monday and won't really have time to post that whole week. Stay tuned.

Per the Idle/Inactive Battle Rules, this Battle has fallen idle and is now subject to STEP 1 of the Idle Battle Process! The Battle Master has been contacted. Further action will be taken if 7 more days pass without an update. In the meantime, anyone who has not replied to the Battle Master's last post in encouraged to do so now so that we can move on as quickly as possible when the Battle Master returns!

My post is up. I again apologize for the delay.

I wrestled with this one quite a bit. I just could not get what I was writing to match what I was envisioning in my head. I had this post done a few times over the past week but kept scrapping it cause I didn't like it. I'm still not happy with it, but at this point I can't justify holding everyone up any longer. I may go back and tweak the description of Abbadon later. If I do, I'll let you know.

For now, the important takeaway from this is that Abbadon's final form is revealed. Go nuts.

Jharm has become the Avatar of Light, the physical manifestation of the Light itself.  The aura radiating around him that is mentioned in the post is not actually anything harmful as it is "uncomfortable" perhaps.  Evil creatures such as demons and whatnot would undoubtedly not liking being near the literal physical representation of such a force of good.

Hello! ^_^

It has been over a week since Cameron's last post! (Sorry. Cameron asked me to give you more time!) I have sent Idle notices to the following users:

Danyael
Kitharsis
Shadow Chorus
Soul Reaver


Thank you Jharm, for replying (somewhat) promptly! :p

Don't forget that I cannot put Cameron on the clock until either everyone has posted or has been warned about being idle once and given a week to respond! The sooner you post, the sooner I can make Cameron post more things for you to reply to! ^_^

Considering that Kitharsis had to scale the spire again, I didn't think it would be realistic to have him attack also.  Just from a timing perspective and all.  I figure he would jump in after a few of the others act?

I can edit and add an attack at the end if you would like, Cameron.

Sorry for the late post.  Imminent baby is making things difficult.

Soul Reaver is unsure of Abaddon's power level or what he can do, but is worried about Jharm, so he intends for now to distract and support.

He's casting a Lightning Bolt spell (moderately powerful Mage spell that does what it says on the tin - intense blast of electricty, completely bypasses non-enchanted armor and very difficult to dodge) to test the waters as he approaches, and once in range intends to assist Jharm in melee as required to make sure Abaddon can't focus on just one foe.

Danyael isn't going to fight head on, but rather put a strategy in play instead. He has appeared directly behind Mary and Cameron, offering support to Cameron with one hand and then producing his spellcraft with the other.

Abbadon's new form has grown significantly and is regenerating flesh and growing new flesh by absorbing the warp energy coming from the Spire. Cameron and Mary have not acted yet. Abbadon has attacked Jharm, Kitharsis, and Gulgrim but is currently only defending against Soul Reaver and Danyael. Let me know if I missed anything or if an attack wasn't clear.

Well, Jharm is continuing his all out assault on Abaddon.  As mentioned in the post, those of the companions that have been around Jharm the longest (I believe at this point that would likely be Soul Reaver mainly, with Kith and Danyael having a "slight idea" would realize that something is clearly different/off about the Seraphim.  His power levels are WAY beyond anything he normally wields/shows, and with each pulse of light the levels seem to increase....as does his ferocity.

I've received a report that there is apparently some confusion regarding the wording of the Idle messages that are being sent out automatically by *Hanako when users are marked idle. In order to help clarify things, We are going to overhaul the Idle rules and re-write the tracking notification messages. Idle tracking has been suspended until further notice.

Not enough people have posted to really justify me writing a post yet. I'll wait for a few more replies.

Based on the time of my last post, I'll be eligible to god mod anyone who hasn't posted yet on Monday. However, I start an on-call rotation at work Monday and I have had little to no success finding time to post during previous on-call periods. Therefore, I either need to post before that, or I more than likely won't be able to post until my rotation ends on 11/12. And that's unacceptable.

Therefore, I am calling back to what I said at the beginning of the Ahriman fight, that I may need to god mod people and move them along before the two weeks listed in the Idle rules in situations where it's warranted. I feel that getting a post up this weekend so that you all aren't waiting an entire additional week for me to post is the correct play, especially with the complaints *Hanako has been receiving regarding pacing.

My next post will be on Saturday, Anyone who has not posted by Saturday will be god-modded.

The post was written in haste, but if I overstepped, let me know. It wasn't made to look like I godmodded Mary or Cameron, but if that's a problem as well, then I'll edit. So far, Danyael is still not attacking. But two more echoes are now on the field.

Thank you to everyone who was able to post. This one was a little bit shorter, but it gets the job done. I did god mod Gulgrim slightly but not too much, though Jharm may not agree. :p

As I stated in an earlier post, I'm on call for 7 days starting Monday, so I will more than likely not be able to post again until the 12th. If anything changes, you'll be the first to know.

Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on November 08, 2018, 05:28:50 PM
Soul Reaver has erected a magical seal around the tower.  It's designed to block things getting in or out - specifically Warp energy, to block Abaddon from continually soaking up more.  Unfortunately that may affect Mary too unless she can generate her own.

Soul Reaver controls physical access through the barrier - by default it will resist phsyical access and respond with a violent jolt of energy, but he could choose to let friendly elements through (they'll feel some resistance like trying to walk through a wall of molasses and something similar to electrical static, but it won't do any harm).

Peterson unfortunately is inside the barrier, as he arrived before it was erected.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Jharm on November 09, 2018, 02:45:26 AM
Jharm continues his head-on assault to keep Abaddon focused on him and not whatever the others might be up to, though the Seraphim doesn't really seem to be acknowledging anyone else in the area at this point outside of his brief response to Peterson.  The glow coming from within him is so bright at this point that even for the Companions its almost...uncomfortable to look at him, and for Abaddon its is as if she is trying to look directly into the Sun.

Soul Reaver has erected a magical seal around the tower.  It's designed to block things getting in or out - specifically Warp energy, to block Abaddon from continually soaking up more.  Unfortunately that may affect Mary too unless she can generate her own.

Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on November 13, 2018, 05:58:19 PM
I've edited my post.  As per Cameron, the Warp Energy is spewing from the broken seal.  As a result, Soul Reaver's spell has manifested differently - it's been cast not on the tower, but on Abaddon, and is much smaller.

- Being considerably smaller, it's more concentrated and harder to break
- It's only blocking the warp energy that Abaddon has been absorbing.  Other things will pass through just fine in both directions including spells and physical objects.  Its surface rejects Warp energy violently though, including raw warp energy inside other things.
- It will travel with Abaddon and its size (and shape if necessary) will adjust according to his own.  Trying to teleport will teleport the shield as well, and trying to teleport 'into' a source of warp energy will result in the barrier displacing either the warp energy source and/or the teleportee at the instant of arrival to keep them apart (possibly with physically violent outcomes).
- Because the barrier is now on a sentient, mobile being rather than an inanimate location, Soul Reaver requires more focus to keep it in place.  He's taken a more defensive stance in preparation.

Post by: Cameron on November 20, 2018, 11:23:59 PM
Abbadon has gone completely on the defensive as she works on a counter to Soul Reaver's spell. This will make it harder to land hits on her during your next post but at least gives you time to come up with something that doesn't have to include a defense.

Let me know if there are any problems or questions.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Jharm on November 22, 2018, 05:43:21 AM
Jharm is pretty much attempting to do a sensory overload of sorts to Abaddon.  Thousands...millions of voices all shouting and screaming around her at one time, intending on hampering her ability to focus on completing whatever spell she is trying to cast right now through all of the din.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on November 26, 2018, 05:08:49 PM
My post is pretty straightforward.  Soul Reaver's Shockwave spell is a very high-level, fast-casting combat spell.

It's normally fired in a wide arc, but he's focused it into a narrow cone.  It's basically pure force and damage, appearing as a shockwave of white energy with a bluish trail behind it.  Human sized targets would be blasted completely off their feet (and turned into a fine red mist).  Abaddon's too big for that but she'd struggle to remain standing, let alone maintain a defensive stance/retain concentration.

Post by: Danyael on November 30, 2018, 10:34:34 PM
Apologies for the delay. Danyael's still not attacking, but he is taking action. He's taken the echoes of the field, but is now (as described in the post) making more use of the spheres, quadrupling their number from 4 to 16. Through the Yamato and the 16 spheres, a strong frequency is emitting from them, with Danyael now (through use of his perceptions of energies) taking on an eerily unpredictable form. He's not attacking, however, but those who are particularly sensitive to warp energy (Mary and Abbadon) could sense the coming disturbance - if you so choose to write it in your next post. The voices coming from his new (and very temporary) form are also so focused that the physical waves of sound are subtly pushing against Abbadon (or Abbadon's barrier). But this isn't, and shouldn't be, considered as an attack.

I'll be posting something for Cameron, Mary, and Peterson later on. More than likely this weekend. But for now, this should be enough for everyone to respond to. The "hastily borrowed from the Fei Serumen playbook" attack Abbadon unleashed is targeting everyone on the field, so be sure to react accordingly. Let me know if I missed anything.

Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Jharm on December 09, 2018, 10:39:59 PM
So Jharm has kind of done something similiar to what Abaddon did earlier.  All of the Light energy he had been using during the fight he was actually gathering inside of him until finally it was too much for his form to contain and it all exploded outwards into a "nuclear" explosion.  Course in this case its an explosion of pure concentrated Light instead of any sort of "conventional" style explosion.  It has seemingly left him completely exposed though as he has returned to his normal state and seems to be unresponsive at the moment.

Think I'm going to need a bit of an idea of how Jharm's attack will affect the battlefield before I can reply.

Does it affect the companions in any way (positive or negative)?
Will it hurt or disintegrate all the tentacles?
Did it affect Peterson?
Did it affect Abaddon's shell (or Abaddon itself)?

Well since its pure Light I would say it is harmful to the tentacles, Peterson, and Abaddon (or at least the shell, dunno how strong the shell is if it can punch through that and still reach Abaddon).  As far as the Companions it would be the opposite (destroys evil restores good sort of thing.) with the only semi-evil aspect of any Companion being Blooddrinker (who since he is within the sword as well as a very powerful demon would likely just not enjoy it) since Sepher has poofed.

Post by: Soul Reaver on December 18, 2018, 05:44:20 PM
Soul Reaver has cast Fire Shield on himself - it will burn anything that attempts to attack him.  The spell is defensively reactive - that is, it's hottest in response to offensive, close range action.  Unless the tentacles are immune to magical fire they'll be incinerated.

He's also trying to use a Shatter spell to destroy Abaddon's cocoon.  The spell basically is designed to break things - the more flawed a thing is, the easier it is forthe caster to break.  A normal item would definitely be destroyed with little effort, while a powerful magical artifact would be much more resistant, or even immune.  If the obsidian shell has taken a beating already from Gulgrim and Jharm, it'll likely have more flaws and will be more prone to being destroyed.

If it succeeds, an Implosion spell will go off to drive the obsidian shards into Abaddon.  Soul Reaver is ready for Abaddon to respond violently to his attack (probably with Drach'nyen) so he's ready to parry with his free hand, but his ultimate goal is to capitalize on the Implosion and skewer Abaddon with Blooddrinker.

A bit of a god mod there from you, Danyael, but I can write around it so don't worry about editing. I'm guessing that the reasoning for that may have been in the OOC you were planning on posting, but I understand people are busy this time of year.

No, please don't bother editing. This is the last day I have available to post until after the holidays, so I don't have time to wait for an edit. Like I said, it was minor, and I wrote around it.

RIP Abbadon. Hope you didn't think we'd be ending a Board Battle involving the Eye of Terror without the Ruinous Powers showing their faces. We have now officially moved into the final phase of this fight. Everyone is essentially inside of the Warp at this point. Mary gave you all a shield before she left so you don't have to worry about any negative effects, but keep in mind how this may affect certain spells or things that you summon. As stated, the Avatar is about 6 stories tall and bristling with weapons, but it is not actually attacking (yet.) Cameron, Mary, and Peterson are essentially gone at this point. You would have to enter the warp to try and locate them and doing so will remove you from this fight permanently.

As stated, I will not be posting again until after the holidays. Have a Merry Christmas for those who celebrate it and a Happy New Year. I'll be back in January.

Gulgrim's spoiling for the biggest fight of his life, and spent this post getting psyched and powered up to fight an avatar of twice the number of gods he typically has pulling behind him.

Basically, Danyael said this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tRLkiYeZVo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tRLkiYeZVo)

Sorry for the delay. I'll be posting either later tonight or early tomorrow. This is probably going to be one of two posts.

Apologies. I should have not allowed this much time to pass without an OOC update.

I was on 24 hour on-call for a bit there and was also under the weather. Check back here tomorrow night and there should be something waiting for you.

As promised, my post is live. Everyone has been targeted by a specific aspect of Chaos. Except Soul Reaver. Soul Reaver drew the short straw.

Heck yes Gulgrim is up for god-fueled Kaiju battles.

I was planning on posting this weekend, but since only one person has replied, I'm going to hold off.

Fixed it :)

Apologies, it's been crazy at both work and home so this post sat half-finished for a while.

Soul Reaver is being attacked on so many fronts that the post is dedicated mainly to him just trying to survive and create an opening for himself.
The antimagic burst he cast is pretty crude and similar to what the antimagic amulet can release.  The downside is that it's snuffed out his own Fire Shield spell, but on the upside it should also blow away that lightning that's zapping him, even if only for as long as it's still expanding.

Assuming that works, Soul Reaver will take the chance to cast a (boosted) Protection from Magic spell.  This is a particularly draining ability to cast but willl erect a white sphere around him that resists magical attacks.  Being boosted means he's combined it with the Dark Sorcerer's 'Boost' spell, meaning it will be more taxing than usual to cast, but increases its power (and lets him cast it faster)

The Protection from Magic spell doesn't mean spells can't get through if the sorcerer is powerful enough, but even then it will likely lessen the impact of the hostile spell and, more importantly, buy him some extra time before it gets through.

Sorry, I was having a little difficult time putting together a post.

Kitharsis is countering the violet tendrils with ones of his own.  Then he is pushing through, trying to overwhelm them while shooting energy blasts at the staffs in order to destroy them.

Also, sand!  And its red!

I'll give Danyael until Sunday. I'll be posting then.

Danyael and his echoes have formed a mass equivalent to a human chain (or rather a human web), while also grappling the figures. When pulling themselves closer, they have all, with the figures, become interlocked with one another (not merged). Think of a crowd of people, like at a concert or public event, all linked with one another. He's also shown interest with the avatar's offer.

Got some work done on my post but this one's going to take more time than I have available tonight. It's going to be a bit long due to me needing to include Cameron and Mary in it as well as deal with some unexpected decisions by Gulgrim and Danyael. :p

I should hopefully have time to work on it more tomorrow. I'll keep you all up to date on my progress.

Post by: Cameron on February 27, 2019, 10:27:14 PM
I was able to get most of the Cameron side of my post done yesterday. Still need to finish the side for you guys. I didn't have time to work on it tonight, so I'll try to get to it either tomorrow or Friday.

Post by: Cameron on March 05, 2019, 11:11:58 AM
Sorry, everyone. Meant to get either my post or an update up this weekend and then the weekend was crazy and I lost track of it. Setting a hard deadline for end of the day tomorrow to have this post up. Jharm, you're authorized to make a move along post in my stead if I don't.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Cameron on March 06, 2019, 10:30:54 PM
The threat of Taskmaster Jharm has forced my hand and so I have posted. Enjoy. This is frontloaded with a lot of exposition. Anyone who had allies hanging about back in the Eye (Daccio, Jharm, Gulgrim) may want to post something about them reacting to the Eye collapsing. Soul Reaver, thank Gulgrim for your moment of freedom. :D

Sorry, post wound up being a bit on the long side but as it was both regarding Jharm (of course) and removing the Seraphs from the Eye I feel its acceptable.  Pretty much Jharm has withdrawn deep inside himself and "changed forms" once again.  While the Avatar was your basic "form transformation", this time Jharm has more...revealed his true appearance, the physical "appearance" of the Light that forms and resides within his body.  Appearance-wise something like https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/babylon5/images/3/34/JasonIronheart_become.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080708211120.  He isn't attacking the shell or anything "directly" (in all reality other then continuing the mantra he doesn't seem to really be doing anything) but the fact he IS pretty much Light itself is kind of hazardous to evil by his simple existance in this form.  While not exactly a "power surge" or anything like that, the others would be able to likely sense that something has...."changed" with Jharm.  Not so much a power level increase but more of a....purity of power you might say.

Only one reply so far. I'm going to wait until this Sunday and then move on.

Sorry, I've been slow to post.
I recently sent a PM to Danyael with an idea I had and hope to get a reply, but it wasn't long ago so my fault if I haven't given him enough time to reply.  If I'm holding everyone up I can try to get a post up.

Soul Reaver. Responded.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on March 25, 2019, 08:32:58 PM
Same.  Will probably know how to proceed after this one.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Danyael on March 26, 2019, 12:30:55 AM
And responded.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Soul Reaver on March 28, 2019, 07:40:57 PM
We've decided not to proceed with the idea we discussed.

Have got another post up now - Soul Reaver is assisting Kitharsis so that he can break out of Tzeentch's magical onslaught.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Danyael on April 06, 2019, 08:05:07 PM

Yep. Should be getting a post up tomorrow. Kitharsis also still hasn't posted, so I'm giving him one more day to reply.

We waited patiently for you, so please offer us the same courtesy.

FYI, I woke up too late to get anything accomplished tonight. I will be working on a post tomorrow and will endeavor to have it up as soon as possible.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Kitharsis on April 08, 2019, 09:55:05 AM
And then I waited too long and didn't check the boards for a while.

Posting now, just in time to mess up Cameron's post he's working on.

Post by: Cameron on April 10, 2019, 05:34:27 PM
Thanks for posting, Kith. Always happy to change up my post if it means I'm not having to god mod anyone.

For the purposes of transparency, here's an update. I'm fairly close to being done with my post but there's one particular aspect of it that I'm stuck on right now. Trying to write my way out of a block without stepping on anyone's toes. I'm going to take some time and brainstorm some ideas and see which one works best. I'll make a decision and post no later than Saturday.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Cameron on April 28, 2019, 02:00:45 PM
Sorry, everyone. Writer's block is something that I have very little experience with and I wasn't expecting it to be so stupid to get past. I finally got a plan laid out just in time for an on-call week at work to completely divorce me from any free time I had, but tonight's the last night. I'm going to try to post tonight if I can, but if not, I will definitely get something up tomorrow.

Post by: Cameron on April 30, 2019, 08:04:59 PM
Post is up. THere were a couple of different ways I could have gone with the Danyael situation, but I think this one is the most entertaining. Also, now would be the chance for Soul Reaver, Jharm, and Kitharsis to help Gulgrim fight a kaiju.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Cameron on May 16, 2019, 02:56:29 PM
Only one reply so far. I'm not going to start working on a reply until I get at least one or two more responses. Trying to minimize the amount of people I have to god-mod. I'll keep checking in.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Shadow Chorus on May 16, 2019, 09:14:05 PM
I'm holding off until there's a couple more because this is something I don't want to have Gulgrim just handle on his own, so I want to see if anyone else has any interference on the situation before I put my post in.
Title: Re: The Eye of Terror: OOC Thread XII
Post by: Kitharsis on May 17, 2019, 11:31:20 AM
I'm working on working on a post.

I'm still here.
