    The scene is just as described: one of the new fields in the south of the temple complex is on fire, the plants all in peril. In the center of the flames is a great black beast, a fox-like thing the size of a bear, its two tails waving wildly.
    Around it, the fox-people who were working in the fields and garden surround it in a half-circle.

    The priestess arrives with the horn and does a double take at the sight of the balloon-fish-lizard creature. But they follow Karl's instructions, pressing the horn against the side of the repitilian balloon and sounding it as loud as possible.

    Then, guessing from his warning that it's going to amplify the sound somehow, they drop the horn and cover the sides of their head.

    When she blows she might be confused at first as the creature seems to swallow every sound. A look at the creature tells her that the noise gets thrown back and forth inside the baloon creatures body even blowing it up a bit. This is just a thing of a few moments befor it opens his mouth which seems to be his total front. The sound the horn made comes out amplified several times which might even make them deaf. The main noise is aimed front which might suggest those creatures can be used for speeches or festivals to carry the sound over the crowed.

    Karl will after that point at the people and point back at the temple. Hopefully that worked out so they have to act fast. he keeps an eye on the giant fox as he hopes it is stuned for the moment. He charges in either way trying to lead the people out and preparing to engae the enemy if it didn't work.

    I think it's safe to say she's never seen anything like that.
    Who would have thought of using a fish as a megaphone?

    Thanks to Karl's warning the priestess isn't deafened, though her ears are ringing.

    The people in the field, though, have a rude awakening. People cry out at the awful sound, folding and trying to cover their ears, and look around in a daze. The ones who are faster to recover flee the fields as instructed, but a few are still there trying to get ahold of their surroundings.


    As for the giant fox monster, it's more infuriated than stunned. It turns towards Karl, growling, teeth bared, getting ready to pounce.

    That is properbly because her world had a different branch of technology. Karl's world was never in need of many tools we use. For example those 'Frogs' work very well as megaphones and they can cover things like washing machines, hearths etc with the use of summons.

    Up until now all seems to work fine, just the not stunned part is a hugh fallback. Guess he underestimated the effect of the horn. Next time they need a pipe which makes high piched sounds most feline people can hear but no normal people. Since the big one is locked on him he has to head straight for plane B. he takes a look around until he sees a way where near none fled and which doesn't head for the church. Then he runs straith for that way, trying to pass the monster to get even more attention. Let's hope this bait plan works out. Since he is quiet good at running he should at least lure it away for now.

    That's true. Simple machines and direct magic are more the speed of technology there.

    Down to the south and southeast there's a relatively open stretch of field, with nothing there except, eventually, a fence.

    The monster jumps towards Karl as he starts running, and then it's chasing after him, right on his heels.
    The creature speaks, hissing angrily at Karl while it follows the bait.
    "What are you doing? You don't belong here!"

    ((I like to imagine worlds where they got magic or something simular and how it effects the evolution of the society. Especially the Level of technologie))

    "And who are you to judge that." Karl replies while still running. In his mind he wonders why this thing can speak and what exactly it means. Maybe it is some kind of corrupted person which serves in the temple? Strange that this crosses his mind first. So he should try to keep it alive. There is only one option so far that might help , but he didn't got a chance to test it before.

    As the fence comes near he just puts a hand on it and swings over it. it doesn't look glamorouse, but then again he runs for his live not a 10 Point result. On the other end he starts preparing the summon of Mukade, the Dragon-Eater Centipede. Let us hope the beast doesn't get a speedup for now.

    "I am a beast of fire and autumn, I have lived a this temple since-"
    "No, who are you to question me, human, outsider?"

    The monster leaps over the fence in a single bound. It's incredibly glamorous. Almost seems to move in slow motion as it jumps over the fence and all the way over Karl, to try to trap him between the monster and the fence.

    Well that was unexpected.

    "You may consider changing that. Go for summer, it fits the fire theme or maybe earth to fit autum." He says.
    "I'm a guest here, so you should treat me well." with that he pushes the hand on the ground which then creates the summoning circle under him. Let us hope this works and the talking distracts the beast enougth.

    "You're funny. But I'm here for revenge, not jokes."
    "You're in the way."
    A ball of fire sparks and grows between the monster's teeth, and it spits it towards Karl. But probably it is a moment too late to stop the summoning.
    It can't resist conversation.

    [The other side of the Fence]

    Right when the fireball flies, the summon is complete. And throught the circle without breaking the ground comes a big centipede. It's much smaller then the one Karl fought but every part is around the size of Karls chest. It swirls around the summoner creating a living hut to cover him. As a dragon eating centipede it got quiet a good resistence against fire so Karl is safe while the centipede only got a little damage.

    "Revenge?For what?"
    he says and prepares the merge. lets try to get out as much informations as possible

    "A cowardly betrayal, long ago and far away, that still has brought disgrace upon all the spirits here."
    The monster growls, quite unhappy to see the centipede's armored form emerge.

    A few flickers of flame grow and swirl hypnotically around the fox monster, trying to catch the centipede's buggy eyes. There seems to be something in the depths of the flame that is just must figure out and get. There's magic in those sparks, that tries to tear the bug away from its summoner for a few important moments.

    "Can you give me more information on that one? Maybe a date or so. Wouldn't mind if you write it down" comes from the safe zone.

    The centipede's attention is caught up by the flames, thought I don't even know where or if he has eyes in the first place. Karl watches his breaking defense. He is aware that any gap will be his end right now so he will just grab the centipede to force the merge.
    A light will cover the both of them, which reforms to a humanoid form. It looks bigger then Karl and while forming it is visible that it got the forms of the centipeds shell. Every part appears to be round and made of several chitin plates making the person look a bit bubbly. Especally the torso appears to be unnaturally big. The head is very flat and close to the main body only a visir shows where the eyes are which appear as yellow glooming eyes. His weapons appear to be two shield like parts of the armor which emerge from the lower arms. One side is sharp.
    All over this form appear a bit raw and also is quiet more bulky then someone might think is good. Whwn you listen closly you can hear the armor scrathing at itself even while he is only standing around.

    Karl has to get used t this body first and the centipeds mind so he doesn't seem to do anything then testing, like moving all the fingers and such.

    "Just as soon as I destroy you, filthy, meddling, summoner!"
    The monster seems particularly mad about that part. More mad than it would be at other heroes.

    While the Karl-Centipede-Combo is busy testing its new body, the fox monster pounces on him, trying to knock the bulky form to the ground, snapping its teeth.

    Karlciped will be easily knocked down to the ground and the monster will wonder why this bulky form is so light and appereantly the armor will give in as if it's not really filled.
    Should the fox try to bite into the armor it will come to the problem of getting it's teeth somewhere to bite somethign off. The armor appears to change so the teeth will need to slip through a full scale . strange howmovable the armor is.
    Shoudl the fox just try to pin him down Kalcipede will slash at it's paw with the sharp edged scale. Again here it seems the arm can also move in a wider angle then the appereance suggests.
