    A second grenade flew from the launcher as Ghoul let out a shout and closed her eyes tight, readying herself for what was about to come. Rather than another blast of freezing mist, this was an actual explosion. This grenade focused on heat and light which would likely temporarily blind those caught unawares and, while the cold-then-hot method seemed to be counter-intuitive to the layman, the effect would be quite pronounced. On just about all things, suddenly changing temperature from very cold to very hot resulted in greatly increased brittleness, warping of metal, and increased sensitivity to the effects of heat. To relate with a not-quite-accurate analogy, it would be like a person who had frostbitten limbs which had caught fire. The overall pain would be less but the actual damage done would be much greater due to the sudden expansion and rupturing of cold and frozen cells... And, of course, the actual burning.

    As for Edict, however, he was undetectable by her sonar and outside her range of vision. As such, while Ghoul continued to laugh like a maniac and circle around her prey, she would, perhaps unfortunately, walk into or maybe even through the wraith. Depending on if he was affected by the bright flash or not, she might have some leeway as to what happened next.

    There are two separate hisses in the room, at the flash of light.
    One from the re-dissipating Edict, and another from the teddy.

    After the explosion fades away...neither are where they were previously.
    They don't really seem to be anywhere.
    The antipodal explosion seems to have done its job...perhaps too well?

    Oh wait, sonar will pick up something else, much smaller than before.
    The teddy's head, equipped with two much smaller wings, is now streaking back towards her face, maw full of obsidian spines stretching wider than necessary, as if made of elastic.

    Oh.. This again? Might as well put the brainless little snot out of it's misery.

    Given that the little demon was more or less rushing right at her, it would probably be easy to use her gun to 'spear' the little hellion with the barrel right in the mouth. Should she manage that, a pull of the trigger later and the teddy would quite literally be eating lead.

    Should she miss, however, the demon's teeth would solidly strike her first line of defense in the form of a projected barrier. She rather liked this thing as, while it was only good for just a few really solid shots, the fact that it was nearly undetectable by visual observation meant that it was a useful little surprise. A hexagonal pattern would glow with a dim greenish-blue light where the teeth would strike, making a rather irritating shrieking noise as the barrier held them at bay for the moment.

    It's probably a good thing the creature appears to be fairly mindless, or it would have anticipated such an obvious counter to its rush.
    As such, it does not, and subsequently "eats lead".

    This will result in the flying-maw shooting off in the reverse direction for the second time today, but this time in a few more pieces.
    A few seconds later, the pieces seem to be remaining rather apart and not-menacing, so it seems Ghoul has actually killed the thing.

    ...well that was easy, wasn't it?
    Seems ripe for a "Too easy" sort of moment.

    There's a distinctly menacing and entirely too...satisfied-sounding laughter from Edict, from elsewhere in the tunnels.
    Up on the ceiling, jagged letters appear out of green energy.

    Well, that little batch of gladiatorial sport seemed to be over now that 'Caesar' here was apparently giving his thumbs up. Or down. Whatever direction indicated a 'good game, let'm live.' Either way, the muse quickly stopped herself from laughing and grinning like the mad killer she was and resumed her cold, businesslike veneer.

    Reading the name splashed on the ceiling, Ghoul let herself grin just a bit. "Well, seems like our transaction is finished. Pleasure doing business with you." she said, turning to leave. Unless Edict had something else on his mind, she would probably have a very uneventful trek back to her airbike.

    Once there and if left unhindered, the muse would lean on her vehicle and fish out her cigarette carton, taking a few minutes to calm down with a pleasant smoke. Watching the blue-grey exhalant drift away quickly in the wind, she made a plan of which tavern she should visit first. If she remembered Edict's words right, this Kirk was a real booze-hound and a bar of some sort would be the best place to look first. Trog's was her first choice but given that this person was a servant of what appeared to be one of the more 'unscrupulous' types, the Black Dragon's Den seemed more fitting... Hah. In more than one way even!

    Tossing the cigarette end on the ground and snuffing the embers with a boot, Ghoul climbed onto her airbike and would quickly leave the flying castle behind as she headed back toward the more populous zones of the Nexus.

    Ghoul is allowed to leave, uneventfully as desired.

    Back below, in the castle's basement, Edict broods before a large computer monitor, a remainder of Affidavit's occupation of the building.
    He wasn't actually using it for anything, merely brooding over the screen's pale glow as he considered the individual he just allowed to depart.

    Should he have just killed her? It would have been more immediately satisfying.
    But, it has been such a long time since Feia had someone properly stand against, Kirk's little "escape" notwithstanding.

    At worst, he could gain amusement from watching her be torn apart.
    At best, she would somehow kill the witch and free him of his bonds.

    They both seem like perks to him.
    Maybe it'll be a good day after all.

    When they catch up with it, a few most certainly burning holes through its wings, it lets out the breath it had been holding. The acid fog doesn't out out in a wave or a line, but falls to the ground and pools around its feet as the beast exhales slowly.

    The cloud that it's trying to lead them through might not do anything to the ants itself, although it is highly caustic, but since there is very little oxygen in the cloud it should extinguish those that stay in it too long.

    Its trick doon, the dragon lets out a brief roar in pain as more ants burn at its wings.
    Field Somewhere

    The ants die off in droves, and many others are extinguished, causing Jette to hiss and growl in pain from the feedback. About a fourth of them are left unharmed either way, but they fly straight up into the air and into safety. Those with their flames gone also fly off, hopefully to recover.

    A massive centipede like creature burrows under the dragon, moving quickly as it melts the rock in front with powerful chemicals. The dragon might sense Puddin' moving under the ground beneath its feet.

    The dragon doesn't seem to sense Puddin's movements, probably because it is liquifying the rock instead of burrowing properly.

    When the bugs back off, it tries to take flight, flapping its wings unsteadily. One of the holes in the right membrane tears a bit, but it manages to gain some altitude. Unfortunately it isn't stable enough yet to fly away, and it is now hovering above its protective cloud.

    Without a good target, the dragon roars again in defiance, hoping to chase away the flying nuisances.

    Riv's Hamlet

    The sweep with the shotgun neatly knocks the Drone's feet out from under it, causing it to tumble comically and land facefirst in the mud. Although it's spastic, uncoordinated attempts to get back up are no doubt hilarious, the braindead creature slipping and falling down again no less than four times, I'd hate to be poor Rick when it finally manages to regain it's footing.

    Riv's Hamlet- Ruins

    In that case, there's little chance the speed freak will be rejoining the fray anytime soon. Of course, it also means that with one dead leg, he's pretty much a sitting duck should Javert return to finish him off, a fact he's all too aware of. Which is why the villager tries to crawl away while Javert's attention is elsewhere, heading for a mostly intact building a couple feet away and, unbeknownst to him, leaving a trail of blood in his wake.

    The other villagers aren't so lucky.

    The one wielding the pitchfork barely has time to register the makeshift weapon being cut in half, trying to stab at Javert with the now useless farming implement, before he himself is neatly bisected at the neck, his head rolling away across the ground as his body topples over.

    The one with the old eight-shot pistol suffers equally, losing his right hand to single swipe of the powerblade. He screams in pain, grabbing the bleeding stump and trying to run, although bloodloss and shock ensures that that he doesn't exactly run fast. Certainly nowhere near as fast as he'd like to.

    The one with the shotgun is the only one who manages to react in time to avoid dismemberment, raising the lever-action firearm to block the incoming blade. Chances are the shotgun gets cut in half, but it still saves the poor fellow from losing his hands. Tossing the wrecked gun aside, he tries to tackle Javert, an action that is likely as futile as it is desperate.

    Skirmish

    Molodai takes the battlements in leaps and bounds, smashing past one soldier and jumping off the next. It's all a blur of blood and cold air - one second, she's extracting her talons from the soft flesh of an elf's throat, the next, there's a dozen men standing in her way, just as bloodthirsty as herself. Well, perhaps not quite.

    All the while, her wound simply seals up, scabbed over almost instantly and dried by the cold winter wind. So she fights on in a flurry of claws and teeth, no longer noticing the wound.

    It's pretty here; none of the strange, but lovely, sights one would expect if you were used to the stranger places of the Nexus - certainly not the alien beauty of a place touched by the Abyss, or even the magic-twisted vistas that could be seen almost anywhere here - but still quite pretty.

    A small river flows near them, with a few willows and hemlocks on the banks, especially clustered around a few large boulders, and several native birds sing in them - the only thing about this place that's specifically magical, as they sing together, and sound as though each one is a different instrument.

    Behind them, of course, it's rather different; most of the buildings are heavily overgrown, and the hedges that once surrounded the Old Grey Mare have long since stopped being tended. But still, despite the decay, it's beautiful in its own way.

    Grr! Augh! Roar! The Warsh is going to have a few choice words with The Operative if/when he returns to the base of MURDER! Gee whiz! Good golly, Miss Molly! These soldiers are not precision weapons! This isn't the James Bond go loud and leave no witnesses to tell the tale brand of infiltration! This is a covert operation! Covert! Not...uh...something that isn't covert, yeah?

    Civilians are not the target! Eliminating civilians is neither efficient nor professional! Taking the lives of innocents is choosing to stoop to the level of the target!

    At least something good might come of this distraction. It'd be much easier to pose as one of Riv's own horde in the midst of this chaos. All Warsh needs to do is get his hands on a uniform. If he can do that much, everything else will fall into place.

    For now, Warsh merely nods and jogs over to wherever the storm cellar is, checking behind him only once in order to determine whether or not he is still being tailed. If so, this would be the perfect opportunity to obtain that uniform I wrote of earlier.

    [Hermitage of Dalechrech - Percival]

    Eericka yips in joy and surprise as she spies the sea for the first time in her life. She isn't sure of what it is. Looks like nothing more than a massive puddle to her. But there's something different about it. The way the light bounces off of it. The little figurines bobbing up and down within it. The way it seems to extend in one direction infinitely. Beautiful. Nature at its finest. Such power and grace in such a simple thing. In every simple thing, in fact.

    A gleam crackles to life within the core of her eyes. Her long locks trail behind her in a flowing river of air (resistance ). She lives for the first time. She breathes in the fresh of the outside. The outside! And the trees! This world is bright and new to Eericka. That concept only now strikes her, leaving a titanic dent where it hit.

    "The ocean? I've only seen pictures!"

    Whee!
    ...
    You know what's funny?
    I think that Percival is Eericka's first and only real friend.

    Extinct? Why, that doesn't make any sense at all! Not one quark of sense! Mine is entirely dumbfounded! This requires much more inquiry, methinks!

    "Why would we ever go extinct, Mistress? If we are the superior of humans in every way, should we not live as long as they do if not outlast them completely?"

    What? Are we talking about the same Azurelle here? Seriously? Fascinating!

    Toy is quickly roused by Azurelle's kiss! She cringes when she first feels the warmth brush against her skin, but then smiles grandly a fraction of a second later. She must be dreaming. There's no other logical explanation for it. It felt so real, but it cannot be! Azurelle isn't like that at all! Never once has she been kind to Toy or any of her sisters. Not up until now, anyway.

    "Good morning, sunshine."

    Toy mutters, not realizing that she is, in fact, awake.

    [Library of Alexandria]

    Hmm... I can't quite recall what is behind this door... Let's go with a monster or shade, shall we.

    This room is circular and empty. It is expansive, about twenty feet wide radius-wise. It isn't lit at all, but Zero might be able to make out the vague shape of a door stuck into the wall of the room opposite that which he just entered.
    Library of Alexandria

    Zero doesn't like that the room seems to be empty but he does walk forward into the middle of the room. The fact that he can't see the door very well also worries him. If the room is that big or dark then a monster would have a very easy time hiding and maybe sneaking up on him.

    Staring down at the flailing thing Rick barely holds back a laugh at the ridiculous antics of the freak. Upon seeing it regain it's footing he frowns, turns around to tap on someone's shoulder, and shoves the shotgun into their hands while saying "Hold this for me will yah?" and quickly departing further into the crowd so that he may blend in and go unnoticed.

    Molodai twists and sits up, grabbing hold of his horns, laughing as they take off into the sky. Once she got past the deathly fear of heights, flying wasn't so bad.

    Once they land again, Molodai simply leaps off Brythaern's head and splashes into the stream. Luckily, it's deep enough that she doesn't hurt herself, but I'm not sure Brythaern will even fit in a stream with his current form.

    The wildfae emerges from the water gracelessly, the fresh blood that once soaked her now drifting downstream. The water also washes away the dirt and spider webs that had been covering her, leaving only tattered clothing to keep her decent. She does not seem to mind this in the least, which shouldn't surprise Brythaern much by this point. The wildfae splashes about merrily, relieving herself of any remaining blood or woodland detritus.

    In a dream I found a place
    of rotting meat and eldritch grace
    and looked upon his primordial face
    and from my thoughts could not erase
    that sense of time that sense of space
    and my heart the darkness did embrace.
