    [Forest Clearing]

    As the vine reaches Michicora's leg she have already unsheathed her scimitar and prepared to hack away at flower woman. But then it reaches her leg and her attention is pulled elsewhere. But her reaction time is almost supernaturally fast and she attempts to hack at it before it have managed to pull her away.

    The spikes still pierces her skin though but somehow she manages to suppress the pain.

    As the demon gorilla hurtles out of the earth towards Finbar, First throws himself forward as well, trying to grab their employer and pull him out of the way before the photographer is stomped to jelly, render in twain or otherwise murdered. Perhaps a suprising action on the part of a mercenary who's already been paid and thus has no reason to further endanger his life, but the triplets are nothing if not loyal.

    His brothers pause only to draw blades before rushing in, the beast's proximity to no less than two allies ruling out ranged attack. One aims a slash at the beast's legs with his sickle, Alpha lunging in an instant later to try and tackle the Fyarl Demon of it's feet entirely.
    [Heading for the Mountains]

    The act of First grabbing him is probably a little more shocking to Finbar than the fact that a large demon-creature just popped out of the ground. Given the alternative, however, he'd rather a moment of discomfort to a giant monster crushing him.

    As First drags the wincing Finbar out of the way, the Fyarl crashes onto the ground on all fours and roars something in Abyssal. As One closes in, the Fyarl will fire a stream of mucus at him. If he's not quick enough, it'll dry and harden upon contact. It's a defense mechanism meant to immobilize victims before consumption. Regardless of how the situation with One turns out, the demon will not be able to recover from the mucus expulsion fast enough to effectively counterattack Alpha. Fortunately, the creature is very stout and it may be difficult for Alpha to actually tackle. It is not an impossible task, but it will surely be quite difficult.

    Furball's claws pierce the boar-beast's small eyes and it shrieks in pain, redoubling its efforts to get away as it's blinded. It's probably not concerned with survival at this point; it just wants to lash out at the things hurting it.

    Acacia grips her glaive tightly in both hands and uses it as a stabbing weapon against the beast's side, between ribcage and pelvis. Her energy is badly sapped by now, so she's putting her weight behind this move, rather than performing the typical whirling slashing move she typically uses.

    If she's successful in penetrating its hide, she'll keep going until the blade part is embedded, and then push on the staff part to cut through its insides, using the staff part as a lever to enhance the force she's using.
    Is it okay to skip me? Probably.

The head.

    Aladar is hit on the shoulder but easily pulls out the weapon, still holding it in his hand. The damage dealt isn't vital because Fade didn't hit a vital area but also because Fade's abilities allow the damage dealt to be reduced (which explains why Fenghar didn't die from the clap attack).
    Aladar attempts to pull the weapon close to him but past the side of his body which would, if successful, pull Fade forward as well. After that, Aladar would attempt to grab Fade by the neck and slam him into the ground.

    Fenghar runs over, jumping next to the pile of defeated rats as shadow Fade creates his fire breath attack. When it's fired it manages to deal alot of damage to Fenghar. Fortunately he manages to use the rats to cover the majority of his skin so it doesn't do any damage to it but the heat produced and the rats insulating the heat causes Fenghar to try and evade the fire breath as much as possible. He jumps on a tree and looks around, noticing the burning rats on his skin then throws them off, aiming them at Fade.

    The burns will do damage to his hands but he doesn't focus on that.
    That is how Fade looks.

    ((I take your effect since I never gave a propper description, but it won't be so seriouse.))

    As the hit goes Fades had hang for a moment his eyes close, but his body still working. As the blade hit's Aladar his real strength shows off. The black part of it starts sucking on his soule while the white part seems to reach for Fade. As the healing beginn and shows of in the most hurt place (the head) Fade's eyes open again and he get's controll back.

    Aladar has a problem now. His attemp to pull out the blade fails since it isn't that easy. As Fade awake again, noticed Aladar grabing the blade ha made a short cast and now a slight green aura surrounds his body. As the rat comes he strugles a bit giving Aladar a chance. What he is doing is up to him.

    Shadow Fade seems to dissapear again returning to his master, but why? Aren't they stronger fighting 1v1 then Fade v2? maybe a bad plan or just exhaustion?

    Fenghar didn't like what was going on one bit. He immediately sprints to where Aladar and Fade are, glaring deep into his brother's soul whilst Aladar still trys to pull out the weapon from his shoulder. Aladar begins to glow bright red and attempts to reach forth and grab Fade wherever he can. If he successfully does so the disease will take place in that area and if that's successful he'll try reaching for other places in order for the disease to spread. Whilst the attempts to touch Fade his mouth remains wide open, producing vast amounts of rats which go forth and attempt to nibble Fade away once more.

    With the rat Fade's strength on the blade has passed, but when Aladar begins to glow Fade makes his return dragging on his sword as well. If he still grabs the blade Aladar should notice something. The blade still drags energy from him and gives it to Fade. The wounds the rat caused earlier start to heal. He still tries to keep the blade between him and Aladar steping backwards to prevent Aladar from coming closer. He can't do much against the rats and uses his free arm to push them away while Fade beginns to glow blue.

    Clearing

    As soon as the vine is cut from the ground, Trisha drops her knife and scoops up her zweihander with one hand as she lunges forward. The blade comes in low as she swings, aiming for the base of the flower. The sword itself is razorsharp and quite light in Trisha's hands as she swings it with her more-than-human strength. Even so, it's merely a one handed attack with a blade that's over 4ft long, so it won't be as effective as it would normally be.

    Icy Glacier

    What's sheer willpower and perseverence catch the Disco Elemental well off guard, so when the bayonet gets hammered through his head, it's all he can do to reach up and touch the pommel of the blade as hundreds of little cracks appear in his disco dome. Right in front of What, the elemental's eyes roll back and he falls, collapsing into hundreds of pieces of mirror when he hits the ground, defeated.

    Rainforest

    Once the creature is blinded, Furball steps back just slightly to give Acacia her shot at killing the beast. He pants heavily, having a bit of trouble breathing, and sets a paw over the wound in his stomach, trying to keep it from bleeding too much to worry his mate until the fight is over.

    Perfect.

    He halts and backs off, staying clear off the dragon as it blasts the fire with gusts of wind. Don't want to get caught up in that. Another ball of black fire forms in his hand, but he holds off on throwing it yet. His foe clearly dislikes fire, but at the same time blasting wind about like that means it can easily deflect his shots if it sees them coming...

    So for now Damon decides to try and divert its attention. Black fire starts to spread out around him, creating an area of darkness around him that spreads along with it. If fire is such a threat, maybe the dragon will seek to deal with this before it spreads too far...and that might give Damon another opening...


    And we're back, from wherever it is we were, to the Stormy duel-battle-skirmish.

    Damon is getting clever and Yolvich is getting snipey.
    The dragon is getting completely and utterly ticked.

    As the last vestige of flame is removed from its scales, it snaps its head in the direction of Damon with nothing but contempt and hatred visibly glowing through its eyes.
    He was right about it seeking to stamp out the new flames as they appeared.

    Everyone was wrong about the winds dying down after the first fireball was thrown.

    In what is possibly a record case of tactic whiplash, the dragon has gone from vaguely playing to becoming completely seeing-red enraged.
    Yolvich is forgotten briefly (which is probably useful, if he's pulling crossbow shenanigans) and the wyrm screams into the sky, inciting more thunder and lightning to erupt from the surrounding storm.

    Then it proceeds to charge straight towards Damon, a frenzied twister of air surrounding its form as it goes.
    Has the fellow ever wondered what it's like to be charged by a tornado full of teeth and claws? He's about to find out.

    Mateo manages to cut through the first wave of pondweed, if sloppily. It's hard to build up enough momentum under water, so the tear is jagged and slow. But even though he manages to fend that much off, there's still much more behind it. The pondweed surges up out of the murky depths below, wrapping around Mateo's limbs and torso with surprising speed and agility.

    The blades are quite interesting. The triplets can tell they're magic almost as soon as they pick them up, but right now the magic is weak. The swords have opposing energy, like aligning heads of magnets. The closer together they are, the weaker they are as well. Right now, they function as little more than swords - albeit very well-made swords. Each of them fits their grips perfectly and is weighted just so. Should the triplets experiment in taking the blades further apart, a small, blue flame will coat the blade once they're a good ten metres apart. As fire goes it's very weak, won't do much damage, and would probably get put out quite easily. But it stands to reason that the further apart the blades are, the more powerful the flame will grow.

    Well. All of the horns seems like a bit of an overestimation. There's four rams, each with two. It's pretty hard to hit eight targets in direct succession, especially if they're all quite close to you and moving closer with alarming speed. Thenadier manages to cut off one ram's, sure, but his vorpal blade whiffs through condensed water for the rest. The flame is certainly much more effective, burning through the cloud-rams with remarkable speed. But since apparently it needs to be announced, the act of announcing it gives at least one or two time to crash into him. That's gonna hurt.

    Speaking of things hurting! The description of Thenadier's fire is alliterative, but not helpful. The fire bursts out, yes, but thanks to the wonders of polearms Mercutio is standing quite far away. Does it reach quite far enough to singe the devil, or does the act of directing it upwards to the rams negate most of the threat? You didn't really describe how Mercutio's attack effects Thenadier, either, so I'm going to say that by leaning backwards all Matrix-style, Mercutio is able to complete his attack.

    Well, One certainly wasn't expecting that and his reaction time suffers accordingly, the mucus splashing over his shoulder even as he scrambles back to avoid being immobilized entirely.

    The goop hardens fast, forcing him to quickly swap the sickle between hands before his fingers freeze around it, slashing angrily at the solidifying mucus. Not a very effective method of removal, but the blade cuts deep and draws blood in the process, activating it's enchantment.

    Regardless of how the situation with One turns out, the demon will not be able to recover from the mucus expulsion fast enough to effectively counterattack Alpha. Fortunately, the creature is very stout and it may be difficult for Alpha to actually tackle. It is not an impossible task, but it will surely be quite difficult.
    At six feet three and with a physique that can only be described as Olympian, Alpha ain't exactly a pushover himself. Simply ramming the Fyral off it's feet might be out of the question, but what with the exoskeletal armor and all the demon should have plenty of weight to be used against it.

    While he's up close, Alpha tries to hook his leg around the demon's and pull, while at the same time shoving forward with all his might. Thanks to their mental link, Alpha and First are moving in synchrony, so that the latter's attempt to cripple the creature's other leg should aid in Alpha's attempts to topple the demon.

    ((You should keep actions in one turn. Well speaking of DND terms you go 2 terms in this post. Just an advice. I know it's hard, but some actions may not work due to the enemy.^^))

    Fenghar is able to hit the neck, but it doesn't seem like it killed him. In the same moment the blue gloom seem to dissapear and even Aladar could notice that he loose his grip on the blade. as the disease should take place...it doesn't. It appears like this Fade isn't affected by disease. Well bad illusions, but it worked. Because right in the moment Fenghar hits it the real Fade appears to his left swinging his sword right at Fenghar in an attemp to dissipate him.

    Well for clearing. As Fade fought Aladar his shadow came back. Fade backing away. His shadow cast an illusion around him real enougth so the rats don't brak it, but also covering Fade's real movement. since his shadow is on ground he sees Fenghar and Fade makes his move to the side.

    If Fade hit's of miss he will after it fall down into his shadow. ((Assuming the clod from befor showed it's effec in the plants around))

    Finbar (still wincing slightly from the physical contact) nods quickly, scrambling to get up and running in the direction opposite of the fight. He drops his zippo lighter, and as a result stops and bends over to pick it up. The glint of the sunlight hitting the silver casing seems to disturb the Fyarl.

    The Fyarl is distracted and again does not counterattack against the oncoming triplet, but the blade probably won't do much damage. Only a specific type of material can cause lethal damage, so chances are the blade will not dig into the armor deep enough to cause serious damage. It will grunt in pain and try to deliver a powerful backhand slap against First with enough strength send a normal human flying several feet.

    The razorback is stabbed in the gut, and its wounds finally overcome the massive beast. It drops to its knees, then to the ground, and its breathing becomes ragged and laboured. It won't be long until it dies.

    The vine attempting to grab Michicora's leg is hacked at and within a few blows it falls away...

    In the time that takes though, two more vines emerge, aiming for her arms this time. If they can get a grip on those, she can't hack away at the rest of them...

    Meanwhile, the vines coiled round the flower are quick to react to Trisha's attack. One falls to her strike, sacrificing itself to keep the flower lady safe, but the others, three to be precise, launch their attacks at her. Two attempt to pierce straight through her, aimed at roughly the right location to hit her lungs (seems the plant has done this before, perhaps?) and the third lashes out for her neck, trying to wrap round and get to work on crushing it.

    A certain half-dragon lands here, looking out over the valley curiously. He'd heard about this place, and wanted to see it for himself.

    Harnel is currently wearing a few lighter plates of armor, including a helmet, because it's easier to move around in and deal with than a suit of full plate is, and that would be vaulable in a place like this. the plates are crafted from adamantine, shining darkly in the sunlight. His greatsword, Conflict, rests within its sheathe on his back.

    As she hacked through the first vine her hacking arm get's grabbed by another by she manages to avoid the second one by quickly pulling away. She was still stuck though without being able to use her swordsarm.

    But the elf had an ability which was one of the reasons she got chosen as a servant of Kuori. With her free hand she puts her hand on her other scimitar in the same motion as she pulled it away and makes a slash against the other vine. Ambidexterity was a true blessing from the god of the hunt.

    Meanwhile she attempts to somehow wriggle away from the other wine which grips her right arm. But while she probably won't have much success she tries to at least get a bit closer to her in the same motion.

    [On a Cliff]

    As Harnel looks over the cliff he will suddenly hear the deep voice of an old man behind him. "That's a mighty sword you have there oni..."

    If the half dragon turns around he will see a emaciated balding elderly man slowly approach him, supporting himself on a sturdy cane as he walks.
    Besides the cane which looks like a true craftsmanship, his clothes are pretty much linen rags, his feet covered in simple bindings rather then shoes.
    "Would you be willing to trade it for something?"

    Harnel turns around to look at the man. Something here wasn't as it seemed, certainly. One of the half-dragon's hands goes to the hilt of his blade.

    "I doubt you have anything as valuable as the sword is, both to me and to what it's worth monetarily. And I'm not an oni - I'm a hybrid dragon human."

    A good warrior will be able to tell that Harnel is in a stance to fight, but to the untrained he should seem like he's standing at ease, if a bit tensely.

    [Rainforest]

    Once the boar-thing is finally dead, its head will start to glow, cutting off where the throat was slit. It will change into the shape of a pair of weapons, both of which are two-handed mauls, made from the bone and tusks of the boar they slew. Each is carved with whorls and patterns personalized to the pair, and perfectly sized to be an effective weapon for Acacia and Furball, should they choose to accept. They can also take the stress of steel, rather than the bone they are made from. Despite this, the hammers are non-magical.

    Alpha and First are a bit occupied with fighting for their lives, but One notices the demon's reaction to the gleaming metal. Assuming it's at all noticeable that is. Something like the demon grimacing or growling would probably be attributed to First's attack and duly ignored.

    Either way, into the fray! The adhesive mucus being launched in all directions might have given One trouble before, but now he's moving nearly twice as fast as normal thanks to the sickle's magic, so I think it's fair to say he manages to evade the frenzied attacks easily enough.

    On the downside though, the short range of the weapon pretty much ensures the Fyarl will be able to flail a claw at him once or twice before One can get in an attack.

    The Fyarl is distracted and again does not counterattack against the oncoming triplet, but the blade probably won't do much damage. Only a specific type of material can cause lethal damage, so chances are the blade will not dig into the armor deep enough to cause serious damage. It will grunt in pain and try to deliver a powerful backhand slap against First with enough strength send a normal human flying several feet.
    In that case, no, the blade probably doesn't inflict too much damage. On the plus side though it does help unbalance the beast, which in turn makes dodging the backhand a piece of cake.

    With a sharp step backwards First avoids being crushed beneath the falling demon, as well as putting himself directly behind it where the mucus-blasts shouldn't be able to reach him*. Turning the point of his blade towards the Fyarl's throat he stabs downward with all his genetically enhanced might, hoping the creature's armor might be weaker at the neck.

    The Fyarl's attempted attack against First will probably fail due to the synchronous attacks of both First and Alpha. In this case, the pain felt in his leg will cause the demon to lose focus and fall backwards. Surprised by this turn of events, it will attempt to kick Alpha away (which will almost assuredly hurt a lot provided it succeeds, as the Fyarl's kick is more powerful than the combined strength of three horses), and begins to just shoot streams of mucus at a wide array of angles.
    Alpha's hit full in the chest and thrown back into a nearby dune, sand cushioning the landing somewhat. Letting out a strained grunt as he tries to breath and dull pain blossoms in his lungs, Alpha begins struggling back to his feet, movements beleaguered by the two broken ribs he's just acquired.

    *Unless the Fyarl can pull that Exorcist thing where it rotates it's head a full three hundred and sixty degrees. Then he's screwed.

    Seemingly ignoring Harnel's argument the old man reaches into a sewn in pocket in his clothes and retrieves something. "But your sword only lead to conflict. Those who live by the sword die the sword. That sword, that armor, will lead to your death." He argues as he reaches out with his closed first and then slowly opens up his palm, showing five straws of grass. "I trade you this for the sword and the armor. Then you can go home to your wife and children in peace. No more war."

    "No," Harnel says, "I choose to carry these because conflict will follow me wherever I go, whether I have a weapon and armor or not. If What you say is true and that I'd be at peace, I wouldn't want someone to have taken the burden for me. Because of this, I will not give up my Sword and armor."

    His hand remains on his sword as he watches the old man curiously.

    "If everyone game up their arms, there would be no more conflict." The old man replies with a shake of his head. "Man is unworthy of their tools. I have seen that. They only use them to kill each other rather then hunting and farming as they were meant for. That's why I'm taking them back." He pauses and let's out a deep sigh. "Now, are you ready to give up your arms? I won't be asking this again."

    "I don't think you quite understand my position. I'm also fairly certain I don't understand yours. So unless you're willing to offer more explanation and a compelling reason for me to give them up, you will not be getting my equipment from me," Harnel says dourly. No matter what this old man really was, he had no right to Harnel's possessions - that was both draconic greed and stubborn human pride right there, as well as the desire to protect his family, "There's a religion of pacifists in the city of Inside. I'm certain they'd be more your sort of people."

    The man nods gently. "Then there won't be any more talk. I have to disarm you by force. I gave man her weapons long ago but I can also take them away." He says before letting go of the cane.

    Then he seems to fade away giving place for something completely inhuman.

    The being in the old man's place seems to be entirely made up of armors, weapons and other tools. It have no general humanoid features at all. It just seem to be a gigantic mass of weapons and arms. The various tools are of various quality and age, some seem to be simple spears with stone points while others are more modern swords, some that seem to carry enchantments. There are also shields, shoulder plates, helmets and even guns stuck to it along with countless other weapons not even Harnel might know the names of.

    Circling around this mass of weapons are other weapons like planets around a sun.

    When the new thing fades into view, Harnel draws his sword, looking the being over, looking for any weak points that might be present and obvious at a glance. He falls into a combat stance, Holding Conflict out in front of him.

    Then, he waits for the weapon being to make the first move. "Whether or not that's true, anything can be used against a creator."

    "You created the weapons, but I gave you the idea. In a way I a all weapons. My spirit exist within them. The spirit replies. "Now, give up what's mine or I am forced to rip you apart. See these weapons? They all 'belonged' to mortals, mortals who no longer draws breath in their ignorance that they could use their weapons to destroy me."

    The weapons circling around the being suddenly stops and all turns towards Harnel.

    Harnel smiles, his eyes narrowing, "Then it sounds like they didn't know how to sunder."

    The majority of his stance doesn't change when the blades are pointed at him, but Harnel takes a hand off of conflict. He has an idea for if these swords suddenly come for him, and he really hopes it works, because he's lacking many other ideas at the moment.
