    Stop is the word I'm looking for

    Tendrils shatter than seems to melt a little and reform. The fires change color into more of an see through, more of an outline of fire than fire, but every fire burns something for fuel, for these Time itself is the wood. Things start to slow down, as time burns around the mountain that is Dark Lord and the Amen base.

    Rileybeast might run into Jakob, who is somewhere around here and actively trying to evacuate as many civilians as possible via clever use of summoning.

    Or he might not, since Jakob's a bit high on the power scale and I have no clue where Rileybeast is and really unbalanced fights aren't very fun. Jakob's about B+/A-, for the record.

    After a while, it lands on the ground. If nothing interferes, it will grow legs, and begin scuttling towards the city at about the speed of the plot.

    DC is not cloaked, and the Mainframe-Drone will find itself in a rather odd place-a malevolent-looking, huge dark red aura swirls around the psychic like a terrible cloud, though it's not actually anything material and thus isn't harmful to be in.

    "I'm staying. This isn't over yet." The psychic looks as if he's focusing for a moment, and the 'cloud' shrinks and swirls significantly more slowly as he suppresses his own now nigh-uncontrollable powers. "Find KR and...Wenomir for me." He would've said Decker, but he's sure she's fine, and he's mostly looking out for KR there. That's probably where his brief hesitation came from.

    Of course their players may or may not be available for it, but that's what he's saying.

    [Inside Red Zone]

    Can a 10-foot tall man made out of metal fly? Of course he can! Of course, now he's looking more like a 6-foot tall metal man now. The rest of his massive frame has been morphed into an equally huge set of wings, which are currently holding him aloft. Spotting Jakob, Kampilan descends for a graceful landing, his wings shrinking as he does so in order to restore him to his usual height. His fine clothes have long since been shed. There was a time and place for such things, and this, most certainly was not it. The giant androgynous metal construct approaches Jakob, its deep voice booming from its, only without any of the supercilious, nasally pitch of its usual speech. Again, not the time.
    "Are you a member or WATCHTOWER?"
    Don't ask how it knows.

    [Meanwhile, at WATCH]

    A cat sits in the courtyard, staring into the distance at events otherworldly. Watching, waiting. Soon.

    [Meanwhile Meanwhile, at the MagCave]

    Kal is still here! Seriously Kal! What are you doing here? Don't you know the entire world is going to Hell in a handbasket?
    ...
    Oh wait.
    Not caring in the slightest if the mortal realm becomes the new home of a bunch of squiddly things, Kal, wanders around the MagCave lobby/foyer place, pouring himself another glass of punch before looking for someone else. Probaly so he can taunt them as their puny world collapses all around them.

    [Meanwhile Meanwhile Meanwhile, Back at WATCH]

    Typical, really. You skip out on one apocalypse. 'Doesn't matter', you think. 'You're meant to be in Hestopia, enjoying Cessie and Harnel's wedding', you think. 'You've just been through three apocalypses, you better take a break on one, or else you could get Post Apocalypse Fatigue Syndrome', you think. You know, because you're already such a well adjusted and mentally stable person. And then all this happens. Well, screw it. So it's just the waking of Cthulhu and the inevitable end of everything you know and love (in this timeline, at least - you're vaguely aware that a splinter timeline was created, though of course the fact that there's another you that gets to live isn't quite as comforting when it's a your head on the chopping block instead). But so what? You have a plan for this sort of thing, right? You ALWAYS
    have a plan!
    ...
    Right?
    ...
    Sighing, KR sits down on the observatory floor, turning off all the view, one by one, until just the one, staring at Inside, remains. End of the world, and for the first time ever (not counting that time, that time... oh, and that other time too), KR has no idea what to do.

    Mainframe hesitates, as he was ordered to take people by force. But DC is still in its records as a GLoG member, and as such, his orders supersede Magtok's. "Acknowledged." And the drone vanishes..

    Watchtower

    ... and reappears at Watchtower. Assuming its okay to handwave it getting inside, it will search for and locate KR.

    "Your presence is requested at the MagCave for the purposes of survival. You have five minutes to pack."
    it announces.

    If it's not okay to handwave it getting inside, then it will be outside attempting to get in.

    Red Zone Streets

    Jakob's blade twirls, cutting down another cultist where he stands, and a family of four fairly average NPCs is teleported to safety unless someone chooses to stop either of those things for some reason.

    "Yes, I'm with WATCHTOWER. And no, I have no idea what to do about the enormous far things currently tearing the city apart. I'm trying to save as many lives as I can right now. Except for the Cultists, of course. They can die like rats for all I care."

    [Streets]
    The pod has arrived in the streets, and is looking for someone to run into (not literally, though, unless you want to be run over by it).

    At this point, it's hard to say where it is, so it could encounter anyone, especially if they're in the part of Inside closest to Cthulhu.

    (By the way, BladeofOblivion, there's someone new in the MURDER rec room, if Sarah's still there.)

    Temple of Dalachrech- Null Zone

    Terrowin stops the sermon, an idea having been implanted by Dalachrech into his head. "Everybody, follow me. I can get you somewhere safe." He leads the massed cultists, everybody that worships Dalachrech in Inside, upstairs to his bedroom, where he opens the wardrobe and kicks down the fake back. "Please make an orderly queue and enter the Scuttling Pits calmly and in a controlled manner. You too, Reverend Siblings. I'll stay here to close the portal and stop anything from following you."
    "Sorry, Sir, but I'm staying with you. Stop anything from interrupting the ritual." Narahar the tattooed half-elf states.
    "Fine, but we'll both die. Does anybody else want to stay?"

    Skies

    Nephrim is still here, and in her natural form. She flaps over to where DC hovers, gripping the Object Fear in her left hand and an ornate, serrated dagger with a sharkskin-wrapped grip and a red pommel jewel. "I'd like to join WATCHTOWER. At least until this is all over with. How can I help you?"

    Reinholdt is confused and has a hard time believing this sudden change in... everything.

    "End of Days? What? Since when? Where were the signs?" Silly Reinholdt. While you were selfishly trying to work on stealing the Cloning Plans while the end of the world was starting.

    He gets up and rubs his paws though. Bindings hurt!

    [Running through the Streets of Inside]

    Formerly Fez Hat Reinholdt slowly stops screaming, but shifts into a cat in order to run faster. Just a few more running posts and he may very well make it out of the city in one piece!

    [Watchtower]

    Butler will open the door for the drone and let it in!
    ... And then see it's a drone and scowl at it.
    But will let the drone through.

    Ilpholin is busy in her room, imaging what it'd be like if KR liked her instead of Wenomir. Silly girl.
    Mister Squiggles has to knock on her door repeatedly to get her to come to it so he can tell her the news.
    "... That sucks. Go get Margret."
    Mister Squiggles chitters and goes to fetch the robot.

    [Crazy Cthulhu Cultists]

    Among those who gathered, is one who prays fervently. One who begs Cthulhu to eat them first. One devoted to the cause of the old ones. One who...
    "Hey baby. It's the end of the world. We should, you know, share this special moment. In my bed. I hear if you get high enough in your bliss that Cthulhu will eat you first. Doesn't that sound like something you want to do?"
    Is opportunistic and hits on hawt Cultist chicks?
    ...
    STU!

    [PACK]

    The Admiral stands on the deck of his ship, glancing outwards as he puffs his cigar. To be honest, he just came out here to enjoy the sky. Maybe try to figure out where the band could set up out here for some really killer performances where they literally fly down from the sky performing their best hits.

    Course, the end of the world sort of puts a damper on all that. Not many people will show up to performances when they're doomed to die at the hands of... whatever those things were in the distance.

    Well. Hell. Admittedly this might be the one time for the best performance in the history of the world. Music was, after all, all about the timing.

    The Admiral takes his cigar out of his mouth and stares at it. Before flicking it away from him and off the ship. No time like the present to quit smoking. He folds his hands behind his back.

    "Take us up."

    The Cryxian begins its ascent.

    "Kill every hostile you can. And watch out for friendly fire." Friendly fire? What's DC talking ab-oh...

    The 'cloud' around him resumes its prior state from before he began suppressing his own abilities, swirling faster if anything.

    Great red streams begin lashing out of the cloud at targets below. Hostile starspawn and Far-beasts are likely to find a dent in their population as these titanic, amplified psychokinetic blasts begin striking at them.

    Not that way. That way is bad. Far too many starspawn. Not the good kind, either. Nope, these are the feeding on people while smashing things kind.

    So, go the other way. Clearly.

    Turn left...

    And almost run into a giant squid MagBot around the corner.

    Magtok shakes his head at the screen, watching Mainframe hop from place to place in search of people worth saving from the oblivion.

    "Months, years if we're really lucky. Hours, days if we're not. Maybe long enough to escape to the moon or Mars, maybe short enough to be annihilated on day one. It all depends on how long it takes them to swallow up Inside and GLoG, and if we can get everyone in, lock down immediately afterwards, and then keep absolutely quiet and unnoticed."

    The big ugly squid pauses, deep in thought. C'mon Squiddly, we don't have all day! There are shoggoths out there! Shoggoths! D=


    "You may enter, Mr. Kaer."

    Whoosh! A tentacle of Squiddly that had been barring the doorway is lowered.

    Not that way. That way is bad. Far too many starspawn. Not the good kind, either. Nope, these are the feeding on people while smashing things kind.

    So, go the other way. Clearly.

    Turn left...

    And almost run into a giant squid MagBot around the corner.

    Can't be any worse than those things, right? Right?
    Squiddly repeats his demands for skills and competence before one can be granted entry.

    I know I'm throwing all of this at you really fast, but I need an answer, Rein. Are you in, or do I have to throw you to the shoggoths?"


    Wow, that's harsh, Maggy. 'You're with me, or I kill you'? No middle ground at all? Jeez.

    "As it so happens, I do have a plan." Says the metal giant.
    "However, it requires that the both of us get to WATCHTOWER immediately. There is something that resides there that must be set free, as loathe as I am to admit it."

    [WATCHTOWER]

    ...
    "I see."

    Says KR blandly, looking up at Mainframe. Standing slowly, she calmly walks down to the Security Room, and opens up a small, locked drawer, retrieving a small disk from the inside. Then she steps over to a keyboard, typing in one quick command. The self-destruct. Almost immediately, the computers in the room, and indeed, all over the base, start to spark and fizz, as in the Office, the WATCHTOWER mainframe starts to melt, slowly sinking into a molten puddle of plastic and metal slag. And in the library, a series of small firebombs tucked in among the shelves start to detonate, rapidly igniting the paper of the books. It won't take long before the entire Library is a raging inferno. And in the Hanger, several significantly larger bombs detonate, the explosions scything through the garage and rendering WATCHTOWER's airship fleet into nothing more than several flaming husks of twisted scrap and shrapnel.
    Meanwhile, in the Security Room, a full duffel bag flies through the door under its own power, the strap slinging itself over KR's shoulder.
    "I am ready."

    A very small hole opens in the front of the pod. A tendril of mist comes out, and quickly forms into a humanoid head.

    "My name is Harin Grael. I am not a horror, though I'm not quite human. I have skills in magic, several years of combat experience, and a really tough vehicle that can change shape. You shouldn't have to worry about that, as I'm not a shoggoth."


    The mist retracts, and the hole seals itself.

    KR is telewarped to the MagCave. The Mainframe drone remains behind to search (unsuccessfully) for Wenomir.

    Temple of Dalachrech To Streets, Null Zone

    Two male humanoids leave, each armed and armoured although in a quite medieval fashion. One, the taller, is wearing platemail made of brown chitin and is carrying a morningstar with its head shaped like a scorpion's telson and a round shield emblazoned with a massive two-tailed scorpion. His head is covered with a ferocious helmet made out of an ankheg's head, the massive insect's cranium emptied and reinforced to make it servicable.

    The other is shorter, wearing chainmail under a red tabard emblazoned with a black two-tailed scorpion. He carries a sickle and a large square shield, also emblazoned with the two-tailed scorpion device. His head is uncovered, revealing a brown-haired half-elf, quite plain and unmemorable bar the two-tailed scorpion tattoo covering his face, the claws resting on his forehead and its tails curled on his cheeks. They are slowly making their way towards where the Remnant building stood, hoping for support.

    Skies

    "Got it." Nephrim swoops down, shooting any that survive the telekinetic blasts and psychic death with an automatic pistol taken from the red rucksack upon her back. She's careful not to shoot non-farspawn, probably the 'watch out for friendly fire' thing.

    I see. Can you teleport or would you prefer to be disintegrated and reformed at the location?


    Regardless of the answer, Jakob will collapse into Cyan dust, which proceeds to travel at an absurdly fast rate in WATCHTOWER's direction. If the answer is yes, the Giant may find himself doing the same.

    ...before reappearing out of a sizable chunk of Airship A. Airship that happened to land in the courtyard. The small white cat glances at the metal man without muh interest.
    "About time you showed up."

    Poor Butler. I think the library fire might just be a little bit too big for him to put out. The ones in the hanger are smaller, though there's all those bits of airship and UFO and car and motorcycle to account for. And now the office just smells plain terrible.

    The Cyan dust touches down moments later, reforming back into Jakob, sword still in hand and armor still on.

    His reaction to the current level of destruction is...

    The Magbot snaps its fingers, and a big pair of burly Magbots, each at least twice as tall as Kal, stare down at him menacingly.
