Jorm and Elincia
“And the prize behind door number 0 is…” Jorm spoke as he and Elincia jogged over to their newly revealed opening, “Huh…”
The Kiffar and Togrutan stepped inside their new revelation as it became an extended pathway that abruptly stopped at what looked like a moving room of sorts. They suddenly heard a loud calling, “We need a bit of help here!”
Jorm grunted, “I’ll get them out of trouble again,” as he pranced off to see what was the matter.
Elincia took out her notes again, walking into the passage further. The walls and ceilings were covered with art work. She walked up to it as it gently swayed from side to side, Obviously being struck by the force of the sonic blast, Elincia presumed. The room was fairly small, fitting with the edges of the tunnel ever so slightly. At the back of the room lay a console, which the Seer would get to soon enough. She stepped into the room itself, as it had no actual doorway. And she felt some of her weight move the room. She stepped further across into the threshold. “Yes, yes,” she looked up and then towards the console.
“WE NEED TO MOVE,” a random soldier could be heard yelling getting closer to the passage opening.
The Tech-Weaver moved into action. The force echoed through the bright energy of his hands as it struck a few more coming in further, heads exploding in green delight. Lexiconus would feed off of this energy, making him stronger in the process. Two more appeared on the left, but something was different about these ones. They were slightly more bulky and had multiple heads each. One of the soldiers aimed a direct head shot at one of the head. It stumbled temporarily, but regained itself and moved further inwards. Two more appeared from the right. Three…no FIVE from the front.
Fwecking land-dwellers, always spoiling my fun.
Those in the entrance hall started to become overrun. One of the soldier’s called back to the entrance hall, “We need a bit of help here!” “Silence!” Qor responded, “Feed your anger and hatred. Focus on the brutal destruction of these beasts!”
“Damn, Lexy, thought you could handle yourse…,” chortled Jorm as he suddenly realized what they were fighting. “Uuuggh.” The Kiffar pulled out his automatic carbine and aimed for each of the heads of the beasts, but they weren’t slowing down. They started piling into the entrance way, climbing over dead versions of themselves.
They all were thinking it, but none of them said it. They slowly moved back, picking off whatever they could. One of the soldiers yelled out, “WE NEED TO MOVE.”
Calindra, Delak, Eether, and Rosh
In unison they each worked together to fight off the fungal beasts in front of them. Eether swiped high, Delak shot mid, and Cali alongside Rosh swung both low and behind them. The beasts were slowly thinning out in this tunnel. They eventually smelled some smoke in the air as the last of the beasts were taken down. They collectively swarmed ahead of them to the blast site; a tunnel with Elincia inside a slightly swaying room, and group of soldiers along Lexiconus and Jorm fighting off a massive hoard.
They immediately sprung into action, but Delak, getting a better perception of the fight from a slighter higher vantage point, saw what looked like 100-200 of them still filing in the entrance way. Dammit! Was just about to get more action!
They all felt the pressure of moving into the hallway. “Get in here,” Elincia hustled, “Quick, quick, quick, quick!”
“Am I going to die with all of you standing next to me?” The thought sounded sickening to Rosh; dying even when other weaker being could have done instead of him.
“It’s an elevator,” Elincia said examining the controls.
The team rushed in, but not before one of the soldiers tripped and was subsequently ripped to shreds by the monsters. That was motivation to go into the elevator, portable shield and all. After a few hanging moments, the elevator jolted down into the abyss.
Dek dusted himself off for a second. Those chamber bars were quite a mess to get through, and frankly he was sick of being trapped constantly. Time to make my own decision for an event, he said as he walked up to the artistic metal door with groans on the other side. This seemed like a terrible idea to open.
“Open the door, Dek,” a proud voice commanded behind the Duros.
Rushing down the stairs was Arch, followed by Lucyeth and a couple soldiers. Lucyeth spoke up, “Seems as though the entrance hall is overrun, and we got a couple hundred beasts coming this way.” Arch interjected, “However, I’ve already contacted those on the outside, and I trust they will be cleared soon enough, or at least thinned out if we come back this way.”
“You don’t want to stay and fight,” questioned Dek.
“I do,” started the Battlelord, “But I have other mission priorities to attend to below as well.”
Dek proceeded went to the side of the door, and attempted to fiddle with the controls, eventually releasing the artistic doorway. Almost as soon as the door opened, Arch and Lucyeth had stormed in and dissected the few beasts that lay within. “An elevator?” Arch was both happy and surprised, but wouldn’t tell anyone that. “Let’s go,” one of the soldiers said.
Both elevators landed and doors opened, each facing each other. They opened up into a vast circular room with different metallic doors in different parts of it. The roof was completely dark, as the force users and soldiers walked out into the room. Arch looked up, “Prepare for battle.” Millions of tiny, dull lights blinked in the roof. Some of the doors opened, revealing beasts, and from the roof came small robotic tentacles with different limbs attached to them. Arch leaped up and swung at it, dicing it in two. The room turned red in color, and 20 more robotic tentacles came from the roof. This might not have been the belly of the beast, but it was sure close to it.
“Haven’t seen stuff like this since I brokered Muz Ashen’s adult holo collection,” laughed Jorm, as he and others activated sabers or guns.
