    And since Gordon is not a fool, he's trying to direct this wind to hopefully blow the black flames back. Might not work, as they are not normal fire, but worth a try.
    Oh, it works. The flames are slowly driven back. Seems like he'll have to keep it up for a little while to clear out the whole area, though.

    And the creature isn't willing to simply stand by and let Gordon do this. Still in the form of a shadowy wolf, he rushes in from behind and attempts to sink his teeth into the dragon's leg. The wind slows him down a little, but not much, and his teeth are quite, quite sharp...

    Well, with scales and armor, it doesn't seem likely a wolf's teeth will be able to hurt Gordon. And if they did, that does allow Gordon to locate the creature, so Gordon pauses in his flapping to try to kick the creature away.

    The continuous assault of bolts hit Kieth and he just becomes hotter. The forest burns and then when the smoke clears Kieth is gone and only scorched black earth to show where he went. His tantrum must have finished and became bored and that is probably why he left.

    The scales and armour ensure there's no severe wound, for sure, but the creature was seeking to cause little more than a scratch...just enough to get through to Gordon's blood. An ordinary wolf would fail, for sure, but the wolf the creature turned into is native to his home world, and quite a bit stronger than your average wolf. Still, with the armour and the scales and all, even the additional strength of this form probably isn't enough to pierce it.

    The creature is kicked, sent skidding into a heap some distance away. As soon as Gordon stops flapping, the fire surges forward again.

    The creature groans as he shakily gets back to his feet, giving his position away again...

    Gordon starts flapping his wings away, trying to turn his head far enough to breath lightning at the creature, but even dragon necks have limits, so he can't quite do and keep flapping. Given that the fire is likely quite dangerous, Gordon choses to keep up with the blowing the fire back instead of attacking.

    Well, by the time the creature's ready to try anything else, the fire has been pushed sufficiently far back that he and Gordon are now in an arena of light surrounded by a ring of darkness...

    The creature hisses and quickly shifts forms again, now growing into some sort of horrific, vaguely tree-like creature. Standing on four thick legs, the bulbous mass of flesh now standing behind Gordon has a large, gaping mouth...and at the top, like branches extending from the trunk of a tree, about a dozen long tentacles, each one ending in a vicious sharp spike at the end.

    The creature's tentacles lash out at Gordon, seeking to restrain and pierce through his wings...

    Mateo is just staring at her scales and holding her hand for now. The voice screaming that something is wrong is not being listened to. In fact, it's faint enough that Mateo might have difficulty finding it even if he was able to look.

    Swamp

    As Wenomir removes his sword from the fish, it crumbles into a pile of so much dust and dried scales. The swamp, however, has no answer to his dilemma and doesn't see fit to offer up one. He could very well follow the path he's on and push deeper into the Hunting Grounds, or he can turn and walk back the way he came. He might be able to find some sort of colony or camp, but here in the swamp the chances of such a safehold seem dismal.

    Pond

    Once Mateo takes the woman's hand, she rises to her feet. It is a beautiful sight to behold, her long and slender legs unfolding beneath her and pushing her up in one fluid motion. As she stands, the song she sings changes from a soft and enticing melody to an almost mournful dirge. It's much lower pitched and almost heart-breakingly sad. Giving the vampire another smile, she takes a step back and attempts to guide him into the cave behind her.

    Firing fire? Sure. Thenadier's bullet screeches through the air, and goes right through the ram that had attacked him earlier. The fire seems to have been somewhat diminished by the fact that that it just travelled through a floating pool of water, but he can see some steam rising up from the cloud-ram. He can also see smoke rising up from the ground where the fire impacted against the ground. Maybe throwing burning bullets through intangible creatures into more-or-less dry grass wasn't such a great idea, after all.

    Mercutio raises an eyebrow at Thenadier's suggestion. Use fire, sure. Because as a devil he most certainly had control over fire and fire magic and such things and oh wait. No he doesn't.
    Still. There may have been some merit to Thenadier's idea. Mercutio notes the growing patch of grass-fire, and an idea strikes him. He waits until a cloud-ram hurls itself at him, but side-steps the attack and grabs onto it's horn. Before the ram can throw him off, he vanishes with the ram in a puff of blue smoke, only to re-appear near the fire. Holding the ram's horns with both hands, he thrusts it into the fire. It opens its mouth in a voiceless below of pain as the fire boils it, steam rising up into the air like curtains.

    Mateo gets up and follows the singing siren. He's looking mainly at the patterns of hair and scale on her back rather than her legs, still completely captivated by the song. Well, not quite- a small portion resists, but it's still not enough to do anything. It's also slightly smaller than it was last post.

    Now that he has some breathing room, Gordon turns to face the creature. Part way through the turn comes the tentacles, seizing his wings, the armor protecting them holding for the moment, but that won't last forever.

    Yeesh. Yoshis are terrifyingly well adapted predators, aren't they?

    Thankfully the vampire isn't precisely a weakling itself. That slimy film covering it's skin is a natural adaption against being fried by sunlight, but it's also a potent defense against fire, acid and all sorts of other things. Obviously it wasn't enough to stop the vamp from being grabbed, but it does keep keep the claws from getting stuck in the brief moments they strike at the yoshi's tongue.

    Still, the clawing obviously isn't having much of an effect and although the vampire's grip on the tree ain't about to give anytime soon, the tree itself is beginning to protest under the strain. Time to try another tactic.

    Puffing up it's chest, the elastic undead spews out it's last meal at the yoshi. As the creativity vampire feeds upon imagination, this means the nom-happy dinosaur will have to contend with two headed crocodiles with more crocodile's hidden inside their many toothed mouths, gun-toting frogs, clouds of candyfloss and razor blades and other such madness.

    Thankfully, being partially digested figments of the imagination, all these bizarre and somewhat-menacing creatures are rather weak physically and will simply dissolve into nothingness if hit hard enough. Mainly it's just a delaying tactic, an attempt to distract the yoshi while the vampire claws at it's own flesh, shredding away the patch of skin the dinosaur's tongue has clung to and freeing itself within seconds unless the yoshi can somehow stop it.

    Yoshis process and assimilate biomass faster than The Flood.

    Think about that for a few moments.

    Of course they're terrifying predators!

    Once all the crazy crap starts flying everywhere a quick enzymatic reaction causes the yoshi's tongue to loose itself from the vampire's body!

    And this leaves the critter opportunity to fend off all these weird random attackers!

Seems What murdered a collector of historic blades recently. Well that, or an entire museum full of innocent people. Honestly, both are equally likely, knowing him and his zany homicidal ways.

    His knees bend slightly, his gloves tighten around the grips of both blades, and the pumpkin-headed figure stands perfectly still there for a moment. He stares up the Disco Elemental with his eyeless pumpkin-face, no doubt glaring at the thing with the kind of pure and undiluted hatred that only someone as mindless and driven as What could be capable of. He lingers there just for a moment...

    And then he's stabbing right at the Elemental's chest with the trench knife! How the hell does a suit and a pumpkin move that fast?!

    The Elemental seems to walk smoothly backwards even though his footsteps look like it should be making him move forward. After backing up a number of steps, the thing seems to smirk at him before spinning on a heel, doing a 360 as with a "Yow!" sound before pointing a finger right at What. The pieces of mirror that make up his disco ball afro seem to shimmer with fiery light before it suddenly arcs down his body to be shot out of his finger in a beam as he unleashes the dreaded Disco Inferno.

    Well Tovpir doesn't know what the C4 does, but he knows what a fireball does. Both may notice a blue gloome in the hole a moment befor the fireball comes in.

    In fact Tovpir uses his ability to imprision someone into a gemstone prision. Nothing he can do oftern, but against so massive attacks his only choice. The demon may have a problem now since thsi prision crated another skin around his stone sking so the tail will be bigger causing a much larger wound while still impaling the demon.

    Also the bomb should cause most parts of the area to colaps as the tunnels Tovpir digged fall down.

    For now Tovpir won't be able to do anything until his prision wents of. it should be durability enougth to survive the explosions.

    The blast doesn't throw him back for he is already high up. Grantz feels his demon companion's life force weaken but struggling. Since his demon is still there it means the underground target is still alive.

    "Amir, it looks like this thing is tough. I've no more demons to summon and I'm running out of options. If this doesn't kill it its up to you to do so! Try not to let it kill me......"

    The Decarabia uses focus on Grantz, focus increases physical output, and throws him in the air above the hole.

    !PROMINENCE!

    Grantz body is covered in flames, even with his resistance to fire it eats away at his body. With the dagger Zanken he makes a few waves of force dive ahead of him. Grantz body dives into the hole fists out. This is Grantz last card so to speak. He was not sure if this would hurt his foe but this was his strongest move: Prominence. He still hadn't mastered it so after using this he will faint with serious injuries. To the very least Grantz hopes for a double K.O.

    Blood pours from the latawiec's side and the beast utters a high-pitched shriek of pain. It begins to trash around in the air, diving and rising again, as its world shrinks to a small center of agony located at its belly. The brothers will find that the skin at the spot where they're trying to cut through is quite soft.

    Forest's Edge

    Whee!

    Already stretched taut by the tug-of-war, the vampire goes flying the moment it's released. In a bout of quick thinking it unwraps one leg from around the tree, so that rather than slamming into the trunk it whips around it, picking up speed as it goes.

    The imaginary horde is easily dispensed with, a single swing of the chain-chomp cutting through them like a hot knife through butter and reducing most to an oily opalescent sludge. A few escape the carnage, but the fate of their kin convinces them not to try another assault and they flee into the forest.

    Which is good, cause the yoshi's got bigger problems now. The vampire's coming back around the tree now, stretched out like a living flail and swinging at breakneck speed right for the dinosaur.

    Forest

    The arrow sinks deep into the offending tree, the sounds of timber cracking and splintering filling the air as the hawthorn sprouts within. That's one tree severely hindered and soon to be dead. About six more in the grove, including the treant controlling them.

    Two of these remaining trees animate next, one taking a wide sweep at Spreagadh while the other remains still, waiting. Dodging the first blow should bring the fey archer right under the second trees branches, at which point it will spring into action and bring them down in a brutal smash.

    Meanwhile, the treant is beginning to unroot itself. Faint furrows appear in the loamy soil as it's tendrils unwind from around the dying oak's roots, withdrawing from the various trees too far away to help in the battle as well.

    Big Game Hunting

    The big ol' monster truck is flipped full on it's side by the fox's paw, weaponry and munitions spilling from the bed and the passengers going tumbling out the open roof, one mouse lucky enough to be thrown far clear of the wreck while the driver ends up being pinned to the ground beneath the car.

    Seeing their allies and comrades vulnerable the rest redouble their efforts, firing again and again at the male fox. One of the mouse mobsters even discards his machine gun, grabbing a rocket launcher instead and sending a tiny guided missile blazing towards the fox's skull. Said missile is packed with a pretty powerful magitech explosive, not enough to kill but certainly capable of putting out an eye or leaving a dent in the vulpine's noggin.

    The Oldsmobile swings back around, Fritz pushing the pedal to the floor and trying to bring the vehicle's path as close by the vixen as possible to give the Don a clear shot. The rodent kingpin doesn't waste the opportunity either, firing right for the fox's flank and sending a barbed harpoon flying towards the tender flesh, a chain trailing behind.

    Seeing no other choice at the moment, Michicora let's go of the scimitar and whirls around the woman, outside the range of her sword and quickly backs away. She then goes back to watching her like a wounded prey, pulling up another knife hidden within her harness.

    "Amir, it looks like this thing is tough. I've no more demons to summon and I'm running out of options. If this doesn't kill it its up to you to do so! Try not to let it kill me......"

    The Decarabia uses focus on Grantz, focus increases physical output, and throws him in the air above the hole.

    !PROMINENCE!

    Grantz body is covered in flames, even with his resistance to fire it eats away at his body. With the dagger Zanken he makes a few waves of force dive ahead of him. Grantz body dives into the hole fists out. This is Grantz last card so to speak. He was not sure if this would hurt his foe but this was his strongest move: Prominence. He still hadn't mastered it so after using this he will faint with serious injuries. To the very least Grantz hopes for a double K.O.

The demon may have a problem now since thsi prision crated another skin around his stone sking so the tail will be bigger causing a much larger wound while still impaling the demon.

    Also the bomb should cause most parts of the area to colaps as the tunnels Tovpir digged fall down.

    For now Tovpir won't be able to do anything until his prision wents of. it should be durability enougth to survive the explosions.
    So as I understand it, Tovpir is using this power to imprison himself in a mass of crystal? Well, given the magical properties, that's probably durable enough to survive a packet of C4. Though Tovpir might still take some damage from the sheer concussive force and high levels of heat.

    In any case, Adir can do little but stand by, ready another arrow of some very particular properties, and wait for things to happen. The move Grantz uses is quite impressive, but the stag worries this fellow will burn himself out.

    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.

    A strong move still deserves to cause something. When he dives through the ground, just a few meter deep he fast hits crystals still inside of his other demon. His attack hit's since the creature behind them isn't able to move away. As a result he crushes the armor. With even less power he should reach for the scorpion himself. Weakened from the shield Grantz attack doesn't seem to break through the stone skin. Indeed he cause some damage, but nothing that would kill him.

    ((Now I'm not sure about the situation so I tell you what I assume:
    Grantz digged himself into the earth going to hit Tovpir. Causing a small explosion there is a free space under the earth. So it seems there is a meter of earth still between Adir and Grantz. And may I ask why you allways say Amir?))

    Tovpir, free before he normally should be, now starts reacting. Having something that caused damage to him, even if it isn't visible, makes him use his tal to kill it. (Assuming the demon is gone before/in the attack)

    ((Sorry I misread the name and never actually looked again, I have pretty bad eyesight.))

    The demon Rakshasa was already dismissed so he is gone. Grantz is heavily wounded and within a moment faints and falls on his face. Given time he may wake up but will be unable to do anything. that usually happens when you use your strongest attack without mastery over it.

    Decarabia sensing his master's weakening life force decides to go to Adir
    to ask for help.

    Thenadier has only ever seen one kind of demon or devil. The demon he fought controlled heavy amounts of fire. Of course, Thenadier knew of other kinds, but was in a battle and therefore wasn't really concentrated on the demon's type. Instead he sees the devil's wonderful knew plan! So he continues to fire the magma bullets down to the forest ground, most likely starting a fire large enough to burn most of the rams. Unfortunately, the trees nearby would start to burn heavily too. Probably not the greatest idea.

    The armored woman reaches behind herself, watching Michicora as she does so, and draws the blade from the back of her knee with a wince. She still felt pain in her "undead" state, but it was dulled. That said, this was more than "dull". With a growl, she stabs the scimitar into the ground behind her before pushing herself back up to her feet. Even so, Michicora will note that most of her weight is now on her good leg to keep her able to stand. Taking a deep breath, the woman raises her sword into a mid-guard position, ready to defend herself.

    Hilly Plains

    At the renewed thrashing, Waterstrider digs his good paw into the rapidly growing wound, getting a firm grip and using brute strength to keep himself attached. He'd have to wait for the creature to slow before continuing his work.

    Unfortunately for Pathfinder, he lacks his brother's strength, and a growing panic rises in him as he finds his claws slipping from their hold. He gives his brother a look of complete fear before his grip is lost, causing him to fall...

    At this height, Pathfinder had a few moments before the ground hit him to think. He was amazed by how quick the fear faded, and once he closed his eyes, he could even smile a bit at the new sensation of the air rushing through his fur. He doesn't bother flailing about or looking beneath him.

    Call it cowardice if you like, but he simply didn't want to know when the end came.

    Spirit Realm

    When it came, he didn't know it. All he felt was his motion stop. His back was on soft grass and the scents in the air seem muffled and different. His ears could still pick up the sound of the monster and his brother high above, but they seemed distant. Opening his eyes, he saw a world of dim light and mist. It was the world he left, but it was the whole world, not just the physical half. This was the spiritual as well. Normally, he could only appear in it for short times, and even then, only got a glimpse of what it was like.

    Standing, he felt no ache or pain physically, but he felt a great sadness in his heart, knowing that, at least for now, his brother was alone. You're next, you know. A thought tells him, cutting through his worries and making him look behind himself. Standing there, a thin and young female Wolfen with blackened fur gave him a slight Wolfen smile using her ears before gesturing at him with her one silver paw. Worry not, I won't take you from this place just yet, but you needed to know. The Shaman, for his part, is completely at a loss for words or expressions, too shell-shocked by the fact that Dark Step came to visit him so soon.

    The spirit chuckles at his silence and walks forward, staff tapping quietly on the earth beneath her paws before leaning in to nip his shoulder. You will be marked, but I have no gifts for you as tradition calls for. Your parents have already taken care of that. She tells him cryptically before fading into mist to travel where she's needed most.

    Pathfinder feels a weakness enter his "body" and he begins falling to his knees as blackness crawls at the edge of his vision...

    Gordon tries to breath a bolt of lightning at the creature.
    And the creature is lightning bolt'd. The grotesque mass of flesh and tentacles stumbles back slightly, looking rather charred where the lightning struck him, icky green stuff slowly oozing out...

    But the attack doesn't seem to have done all that much. It does only look vaguely tree-like after all. Could simply be that this form, whatever it is, is simply quite tough. There's not exactly much in the way of obvious weak points...aside from the mouth, perhaps, and I suppose the legs since he has to stand on them...but they are rather thick, sturdy legs...

    The creature's tentacles continue their assault, seeking to pierce holes in the armour near the centre of each wing, then tear outwards.

    Gordon roars with pain as the tentacles start getting through to his wings. Seeing as lightning isn't doing much, Gordon loosens a catch in the armor, releasing to his clawed hand the only weapon he can use in both human and dragon form. That weapon, his shock pistol with the railgun attachment.

    As the holes in his wings are being ripped open, Gordon aims the railgun at the creature's mouth, and tries to blow a hole through the creature.

    The siren sings and smiles as she leads Mateo into the cave. Water slooshes up around his legs. As they enter the cave, it grows dark. Soon all Mateo can see is the siren's almost radiant figure, almost glowing in the gloom. With every step they take, the water grows deeper and colder. It is up to Mateo's ankles, then his knees, then his waist. Here, the siren comes to a sudden halt and releases his hands. She's still smiling, but as she stops so does her song. The last few notes echo in the cave and then fade away. With the silence comes clarity of mine - Mateo will gain control of his faculties and realize where he is. But before he has a chance to react, long and vine-like pondweeds come to life under the water, aiming to ensnare his ankles and wrists.

    And so Wenomir pushes further into the swamp. Even on the path he's been following, the going is slow and difficult. In many places, the path is lost to quicksand or over-run with weeds and he must double back to pick his way around. After about ten minutes of exploration, he begins to notice things are subtly wrong. If he looks carefully, he can see faint faces in the bark of the skeletal, leafless trees that surround him. Shadows twitch faintly like living beasts at rest. The overcast sky is choked with black clouds but somehow he can see faint silver stars through them.

    In a display of strategic brilliance, Thenadier focuses his efforts on creating even more fire! As the flames begin to burn in earnest, the three remaining cloud-rams lift up into the air. On the ground, surrounded by flames and choking black smoke, Mercutio wrestles the fourth by the horns. Wreathed in steam it bleats and jumps and kicks, trying to throw the devil off. But as the fire causes it to evaporate, it loses its strength. Slowly but surely the cloud-ram shrinks before it is lost to steam.

    Meanwhile, the other three have figured out the dangers of the burning ground, and float up to safety. They turn, converging on Thenadier in his tree. Snorting, the three cloud-rams lower their huge, spiral horns and launch themselves at the gunslinger from three different directions. By this point the fire has spread to the base of his tree and is licking at the trunk from one side. Before they can hit, Mercutio teleports in with a puff of blue smoke and brimstone, grabing a second cloud-ram by the horns from above and using his body-weight to force it down into the flames below. Thanks to Mercutio, Thenadier now has two cloud-rams charging at him instead of one. Yay?

    "I should probably let you know," Mercutio yells up, lost in the smoke, "that unlike other devils I am not fireproof!"
