    The fog withdraws to the interior once again, and the hole seals itself.

    Most of the Cult of Dalachrech has evacuated to the Abyss through Terrowin's emergency escape portal. The only two left are Deacon Terrowin of Xela's Howe, High Priest of Dalachrech, Twice-Survivor, and Reverend Narahar VI. They're described in my previous post.

    Missy and Edijar enter (godmodding for Wolfy). Missy looks around at everyone inside, mentally assessing their threat levels.

    For the benefit of others, she and Edijar are both in ludicrously over the top power armour, though sadly for Kal, it's not the kind that comes with metal boobs and curves. It's not even clear it's a female wearing it. What a travesty!

    ((Happy hasn't been wheelchair bound since her resurrection. Remember her fighting bad guys (and hypothermia) on the island? Though since Happy didn't get carried over to the splinter timeline, you can make a cut scene of searching for her on Gersemi's Island.

    "But if I leave, who's going to provide comic relief? You? Didn't think so. Besides, call me ugly if you want, but I'm going to be betterfor the morale of this place than you ever will. I mean, think about it - loads of people, cooped up in a cave for months and months, with the end of the world looming over their heads? Some of them are going to get a little desperate. Eh? Eh?"

    "That pretty much describes what we're doing, too. I'm Reverend Narahar, and this is my superior Deacon Terrowin of Xela's Howe, High Priest of Dalachrech." The half-elf motions with his sickle towards the man in the bug suit.
    "We're also performing a noble act of self-sacrifice; just before we left our fortified Temple we closed a portal leading to the Realm of Dalachrech where we evacuated all the other members of the Cult of Dalachrech." I just remembered Terrowin owns an automatic pistol with a flintlock-style grip.

    The metal man gestures towards what appears to be a rather ordinary white cat with a black collar, which is staring rather balefully at the two of them.
    "The Movement of Fire must be freed." Repeats Kampilan.
    "Rather generous of you, seeing as you're the one who had me bound in the first place." Says the cat.
    "If I recall, you must unravel each of the five bindings present in the cat's collar, then remove the collar." Says Kampilan, pretending the cat hadn't just spoken.
    ...
    "You may wish to step away, once you do so. It is probable hat, once free, the Movement of Fire will likely try to kill you. He was always tricksome that way."

    "Dalachrech is the Lord of Invertebrates. His realm might not be very hospitable to those with whom are not of His faithful. And then there's the fact His worshippers were gathered in our Temple and His clerics are few; had we attempted to find others to save, we may have been overrun and then nobody would have been saved and our dead would be threatened." But basically they didn't want non-worshippers in His realm.

    Becket and co manage to get past the squidpig without much trouble. Seems the thing was just warning them to stay away from the person it was busy devouring. Wasn't intelligent, really. Just a really creepy animal.

    Meanwhile!

    The fellow pulled out of the rubble grabs a bit of wood and leans heavily on it. His leg is in downright awful shape. "Thanks for the help you two. Any idea where we're going? I'm not sure anywhere is safe anymore."

    There is now a Zee puppet in the MagInfirmery. It will prove to be completely vegetative and non-responsive. Yay?

    "We're here Father!" Divaonar calls out as he bounds over to Raril. "You should go without us. Bring someone else. We can fight and we'll be okay!"

    The chimera rubs his head against Raril's arm, trying to encourage him to stand.

    Meanwhile...

    One of K'rax-Naggath's massive blazing eyes slowly opens as her body slowly begins to move. As with any of these horrific mountainous monsters even slight movements are enough to send tremors through the earth.

    "Mother is awakening,"
    Raven observes. "I doubt she will be pleased."

    Eadin's expression turns grim. She heard of him, the city and the other horrors slumbering inside the ocean. "Always thought it was some horror story.."
    She sighs, thinking of the people she cares about here. "I can't leave..."
    She takes a deep breath before returning her gaze to the horror. Looks like other people noticed him too. "Should do something..." She mumbles.


    Ace nods. He hadn't expected her to have a way out - he doubted anyone who did would still be here.
    "Alright. You're welcome to come with me, then." A little company would be nice. And would probably help him survive for a while longer. He follows her gaze, looking out at R'lyeh for a little while, before gently reaching out to put his hand on Eadin's shoulder. "C'mon." He says, quietly. "We need to keep moving."

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."

    He chuckles bitterly, and then turns towards Moon with a smirk.

    "Y'know who's screwed, though? Those nincompoops who had their entire base under the sea. Betcha fifty bucks all of HALO is already dead."


    Moon Called lifts her head, looking up at the ceiling as she considers Magtok's projected survival times. "So either we're really, really really screwed, and we're all gonna die tonight, or we're all just really screwed, and we might make it a few years if we're lucky." She says. "And either way, we're going to be stuck in a building together for the duration of the time." The ice elf shakes her head, chuckling darkly.
    "What, HALO?" Moon replies, snorting. "Those rabbits? Yeah right. They've probably got some sort of anti-doomsday shield that takes them even deeper into the sea so they can live out the rest of life on Nexus having mad, poorly thought out and barely justified sex."

    Rahona nods at her gun as she begins explaining her plan the the crutch-man.

    "Not where, when"

    She gestures with a wing-arm at the surrounding madness.

    "At sum point we entered an alternate timeline, or I did anyway, and I'm trying to figure out when."

    Wow, what a drama queen.

    "Almost nothing. I need to eat and drink like humans, but that's it. My vehicle charges itself magically."


    The fog withdraws to the interior once again, and the hole seals itself.
    "...You may pass, strange being."

    Squiddly eyes the thing suspiciously. Definitely looks pretty horror-ish, but it doesn't seem to fall under the definition Magtok installed. Damn.

    Being wheelchair bound and a little girl, respectively. For some definitions of little girl.

    He had intended to ask for a Magvehicle that could double as a boat and a car and drive to GLoG and then Gersemi's Island, but the telewarpers will definitely be faster.
    Magtok shakes his head.

    "Reinholdt, if I start letting sentimentality choose who I pick, I'll end up with the entire Nexus inside here, along with every last shoggoth, squid man, and horror that can pass for a mortal being. If people see a cripple and a little girl walk in after being denied for having spent their lives as seamstresses or cooks, I'm going to have a riot out there. What the hell do you want me to do?"

    Hey look, there he is! Still there with Moon! Speaking of whom...

    Magtok snickers.

    "Maybe. I can't help but hope they built right on top of R'lyeh, though. Y'know, just so they finally get some measure of comeuppance for everything."

    He doesn't mention the hideous mess that's become of AMEN, though. Probably for the best, as that'd be kinda depressing.

    "And yeah, cabin fever's going to be nuts. Like one of those godsawful reality shows about strangers living together, except getting voted off the island means some sick monstrosity slimes its way in through your eyeballs."

    A man arrives here. He heard there was hope of survival here, and it seems he heard right. He's dressed in a pinstripe suit and fedora. "Heardya takin people in." Mister Pinstripe Suit addresses the MagSquid. "I'm friendly an got skills." He says. And he totally does, but no time to explain now!
    The stranger might not have time, but MagSquid's more than willing to hold people back, just on the off-chance someone's trying to smuggle a shoggoth or a cripple through the door.

    "Elaborate upon the nature of these skills, mortal!"

    Oh, Maggy understands.

    ...Or maybe he's too busy trying to repress a grin as he slowly but surely establishes himself as the new ruler of what's left of the Nexus.

    One of those two, I'm sure.

    I think he's trying to imply something here...

    "What's a duodenum?"
    "It's umm...this intestine thingy. The boss mentioned something about kicking someone in it once, and I thought it sounded kinda neat, so..."

    Magbot, stop talking about duodenums! This crafty devil-boy is trying to talk his way into staying!

    "Nevermind that! You can just go whore yourself out to that one GLoG cabin or something! Or like, half the people in Watchtower! Or some cultists! Or anyone else! We're trying to keep some small piece of society alive, and Magtok says we totally need souls for that!"

    That's totally enough to get him in, right?

    Missy removes her helmet, and steps over to Kal and the Magbot. "You know, demon boy has a point. Mating urges tend to go way up in this sort of situation."

    Damn it, Missy, didn't your Remnant training include identifying Outsiders?




    *Missy's intervention has nothing at all to do with Kal's hawtness. NOTHING, I TELL YOU!!!!
