    Calaran: Oh me too...uh Ynot's sidekick? I'm hoping it makes him into an army of hideous borderline unkillable beasts! That'd be so charming! *she stares at the fight* Uh. F*ckaduck? Even for my shenanigans this is a bit weird. Do I have to break out the giant hammer? Because I will.

    "Indeed, man of much rage. I am pilot, and they will contact me back when is needed. For now, I scratch your back, then maybe you can scratch mine if needed, aye?" The weird alien then shut the landing pad, and ushered Kratos to follow him to the control panel.
    "Where do you wish to go? Not sure if you'd know how to drive this junk."

    [Convention]

    *Noticing the chaos, Malygos grins maliciously, teleporting over to Xavalis*

    Malygos: Well, Xavalis, guess all bets are off.

    *Malygos begins to fire arcane bolts at Xavalis, battering him, but he is interrupted by a legion of beasts, each mutated and augmented with blue-green cytoplasts bursts in.*

    *A large troll, augmented by cytoplasts takes one look at the horseman with the bow and rips his head off.*

    Xavalis: Looks like we've got more pressing concerns.

    *A Cytoplast-enhanced human woman enters behind the beasts and stands next to the troll*

    Woman: I am Yarighraya, of the Simic Combine. And he's running a new world order of progress and all that. Anyone care to join?

    *She grins maniacally.*

    Yarighraya: I didn't think so!

    *She laughs as the troll, aided by three drakes and two green elementals which appear to be based on cytoplasts smash things. Simic elves, humans, and vedalken agents scan the fields, abducting people and quickly leaving. Two more elementals, these made of augmented trees, guard these escapes.*

    ---

    [Elemental Chaos]

    *Loki is slammed to the ground by the onslaught*

    Loki: Ugh...I'm not. Going down..so....EASILY!,!

    *He sits up, charging up immense power into his body, his wounds opening up from the strain, dimming the raw chaos immediately surrounding the clearings, and charges the power into three massive bolts of chaos energy that home in on Namah, scorching the air itself and the entire area surrounding it.*

    Loki: This...oughta do it.... *pants*

    ---

    [Datrio]

    Hydraxis: You sure you picked it up?

    Techie: Yes, I know we found another magic surge beneath the surface.

    Hydraxis: Well, then, land the shuttle!

    *The shuttle lands and Hydraxis and his troops exit, heading towards the source.*

    *Blackout looks around*

    Blackout: Why does everyone here insist on fighting all the time?

    *The astronaut continues drifting away, and the cloud leaves the spacesuit*

    *The astronaut's visor hits the camera*

    *The suit is now completely empty*

    Blackout: Am I beginning to make myself clear?

    [ Mad Scientist Convention: ]

    *As he is decapitated, the bow-wielding horseman dissolves into dark mist*

    *His dissociated form returns to the Bogeyman, who is kneeling over Merhiem; flexing his fingers maliciously*

    Merhiem: *Suddenly raises her head, showing her eyes: still hellish black pits, with glowing white circles in the center* GOTCHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Returns to her bestial form*

    *She lunges, grabbing the Bogeyman by the throat and lifting him into the air*

    Merhiem: I'MMA PLANT ME A CREEPER TREE!!!!!!!!!! *Slams the Bogeyman into the floor*

    *The nearby area shakes violently on impact*

    *Suddenly, the door of the blown-up ship is beaten on violently from within*

    *The door finally comes off, and is sent skidding across the floor*

    *Atop a huge, bipedal, weasel-like beast, a familiar woman with lavender hair and a black-and-red blindfold rides*

    *One hand holds the reins, while the other cradles a girl's singed hair*

    Noodle: *Whimpers, tucking her face into Rider's side*

    Rider: I will make you pay. *Flicks the reins, sending her steed dashing out*

    *It suddenly leaps into the air, screeches, and disappears*

    Serrator: ...Well that just happened.

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Elemental Chaos, Loki vs. Namah: ]

    *With a scream, Namah is thrown against a pillar*

    *She desperately holds on, one of her wings mangled and shorn*

    *However, she proceeds to rip the other out, and form it into a glowing pink boomerang*

    Namah: ...Uuurrrrggghhh!! *Throws her impromptu weapon, then devotes all that remains of her strength to clinging to the rock with her sticky finger and toepads*

    *The boomerang closes in on Loki*

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Datrio, West City: ]

    *Hydraxis and Co. find themselves stopped by a ghostly waif of a dreamkeeper girl hovering out of the ground; her pale, crystal blue halo dimly lit*

    Wisp: Ghost? Ghost?? Oh noooooo, Wisp is lost, Wisp is lost!! *Looks over to Hydraxis, eyes turning pale blue* Watery person Wisp needs your help I'm lost and I have a curfew and I have to find my way back or Vi will be mad even though it's not my fault!!! *Eyes briefly flash red, before turning to their normal white sclera with red-orange slit pupils*

    *She hovers there, face contorted, and she clasps her hands as she looks at Hydraxis*

    Wisp: Pleeeeeaaaaaase help?

    ~ ~ ~

    [ And Now, For Somewhere Completely Different: ]

    *In a system of eleven planets, one planet is a hub of ship transit*

    *The planet is surrounded by five moons, maintaining a resplendent, silvery ring around the orange-hued seas and rich jade green landmasses visible on the surface far below*

    *A look at the seas would reveal tempests, raging for millenia, that no life could survive in; barren coastlines, where Ctarl-Ctarl brave treacherous mines as the waves can be heard roaring faraway at all times; and far, far inland, towering cities of silvery and coppery metal*

    *Within one such spire, a group of elderly Ctarl-Ctarl are gathered - led by a female in a long coat, with several medals on the chest*

    *A transmission comes through, revealing a Ctarl-Ctarl oddity; she has dark skin, as is per the usual, but her hair is a messy vermillion, sticking out wildly above her headband*

    Commander: You are connected with the High Command of Home. This is Empress Lorret Hashiyo-Hashiyo XVIII, gathered with Grand Marshal Hauram Nuranura, Grand Admiral Dopuri Miito-Miito II, and the six Chiefs of Staff. Agent Luppu Dargadarga, report.

    Luppu: It is so frustrating!! Sir, we have rested the clues from every crypt and crevasse on this planet, and there is still not a clue to the Galactic Leyline!!!!! Why are we even investigating this planet? They were so primitive! They didn't even perfect faster-than-light space travel!!

    Lorret: Indeed. But that is only because this race shares the distinction with the rest of the planets on your list of having blown themselves to kingdom come with incredibly advanced, incredibly destructive weapons. Be mindful that Planet III will require gasmasks at all times - its air is deadly.

    Luppu: Hmmmmmm...A planet where the air itself is trying to kill us? I suppose that only the bravest Ctarl-Ctarl explorers can handle it! You can count on me, Lorret!

    Lorret: *Grins* I would ask you to refer to me by title, but you'd forget by the morn. Just don't die ya moron. And hurry back with what you find so we can party!

    Luppu: *Pumps fist in time* Best! Empress! Ever! Best! Empress! Ever!

    *A crew behind her joins in the chant, and the transmission closes*

    Lorret: She's a mad cretin, but she'll get the job done.

    Malygos: Yes, yes, another generic doomsday machine, which will almost certainly be counteracted in a month or so. Now if you'll excuse me, we have bigger problems.

    *Malygos indicates the mayhem caused by the Simic beasts and agents*

    Malygos: You could be a help, here, or get out of our way.

    *Malygos teleports into the fray before Blackout can respond, launching cover fire of arcane volleys to slow down the elementals*

    Yarighraya: Fools! Our mutations are the future!

    *She points at Sasuken, making one of the trolls leap upon him with uncanny speed and begin to pummel him.*

    ---

    [Elemental Chaos]

    *Loki attempts to dodge, but such an action is impossible in his weakened state, and the impromptu weapon hits him right in the face.*

    Loki: Ugh...Good fight, good fight. But...

    *He attempts to stand, and manages to get to one knee*

    Loki: We...are done.

    *A lesser devil leaps in, grabs his body, and immediately leaves to Hei Fon 4*

    Loki: Something...to remember us by.

    *The rift begins to fold in on itself*

    ---

    [Datrio, West City]

    Hydraxis: And why would I help you, runt? I've got bigger fish to fry.

    *The company begins to proceed, but Hydraxis halts them*

    Hydraxis: Unless you can tell me...the vergence point of the leylines of this planet.

    ---

    [Somewhere Completely Different]

    *A tall, lean figure, clad in rich white and gold robes, trimmed with black, with a white hood trimmed with gold, is leaning against the stones of the planet Luppu is to land on, waiting near the spot he anticipates she will land.*

    [ Convention: ]

    Bogeyman: *Swings his cloak again, summoning more soldiers; now fully-armored, carrying guns and axes, and lined up in square formation*

    *As they march on Merhiem, the Bogeyman disappears into a pool of shadows on the floor*

    *It darts away, and just as Octoroo launches a binding spell to capture it, it fades away*

    *Still, the soldiers and the scale-carrying horseman remain to do battle*

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Elemental Chaos, Collapsing Rift: ]

    Namah: Damn...Looks like...I won't...Make...It... *Slides in and out of consciousness*

    *Her OverSoul completely fades, as she lies prone atop a half-crumbled rock*

    *However, suddenly, a glowing magenta seam opens in the air above her*

    *Some kind of huge, singing figure rips through, and lowers its arm*

    *It gently scoops Namah up, and carries her through to safety*

    *The seam closes without a trace*

    ---

    [ Hei Fon 4, Desolation Row: ]

    *Now, flaming puddles of unnatural purple oil compromise the battlefield*

    *Tapped into her Beast Strength, Aisha delivers a kick to Heathcance's chest*

    *With an explosion, she's launched away, and Heathcance stumbles out*

    Heathcance: I normally wouldn't do this...But normally...I'm not forced to battle...A Ctarl-Ctarl...In close combat... *Raises hand to chest*

    *Just as Aisha approaches, Heathcance punches open the power core on his sternum, and twists a crank within*

    *A crackling field of purple energy blazes to life around him, knocking Aisha back*

    *She yowls, and crouches; ready to pounce on Heathcance the moment he's open*

    *Suddenly, the field dissipates - revealing Heathcance, now almost twice his previous height, and covered in bulky, dark armor*

    *His right hand is now a massive, burning hammer, while his left hand has become a pair of buzzsaws spinning in reversed directions; mounted over his shoulders are a gatling gun and a rocket launcher, respectively*

    Heathcance: I'MMA SMASH YA #####!! *Launches his hammer-hand on a cord*

    *He knocks Aisha into a wall, just as Loki is brought back*

    Heathcance: YOU'RE NEXT, YOU FIRE-SPITTING BABOON!! *Turns back to Aisha, launching a full set of missiles on her position*

    *For a while, all is silent; then, by chance, the clouds move aside from the moon, as night begins to take hold*

    *The moon is full, an orb of pale light barely visible for the inferno*

    Aisha: *Growls inhumanly within the wreckage, emerging slowly*

    *Something is very, very different; and the silhouette of a big cat, with elongated ears, is becoming visible...*

    Heathcance: GODDAMMIT. *Tries to train his gatling gun on her*

    Aisha: *Flickers out of the smoke, closing her jaws on Heathcance's head*

    *Her charge carries so much force that his huge form goes skidding into a wall*

    Aisha: *Now resembles a huge, white tiger, yet with her usual form's elongated ears; her bell-adorned collar still hangs around her neck*

    *Roaring, she rakes her claws across Heathcance's chest; deep, jagged-edged scratches are left*

    *Just as he swings his saw arm, Aisha darts away to safety*

    Heathcance: WELL. I SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Datrio, West City: ]

    Wisp: *Eyes briefly flash lime green, before turning an angry scarlet*

    *She hovers up and back a ways, claws poised in front of herself, and she mutters*

    Wisp: Is that it...? No it can't be it, no no not possible. He's greedy, they just want to kill and kill and kill and kill and kill...He stinks of them. Wisp has a bad feeling.

    *She glares back at Hydraxis, teeth bared and eyes glowing a more dangerous shade of red*

    Wisp: Why does the water-person want to know?

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Mystery Planet: ]

    *The entire planet is lifeless, covered in scorched soil*

    *Huge burial mounds rise into the air, many topped by scorched, spiralling metal towers*

    *From above the hooded figure, a rounded ship with eight 'arms' ringing the main structure warps in, and descends*

    *Over an intercomm, a voice shouting down, as well as riotous cheers in the background, can be heard*

    Luppu: This is Luppu Narganarga, agent of Empress Hashiyo-Hashiyo of Home, Captain of the Thalli-Thalli, and representative of the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire! We're descending to your position! Retreat and you will be shot!

    *The ship lowers down, before its lower three arms move so that it can stand like a tripod*

    *A circular door opens, and Luppu - followed by five or six fellow Ctarl-Ctarl - leap down*

    Luppu: What is your name, and why are you on this planet, Stranger?

    Calaran: I -like- free for alls! *Smiling she reached into her skirts and with a flick of her wrist extended a toy size hammer to one with a 10 foot pole and a monstrous head. Leaping into the fray she swung it around a few times. Noticing Scales she charged him, burst through his shields with a blast of energy and let loose a blow that would smash his head like an overripe melon.* ALRIGHT WHO'S NEXT >D *Screaming she glared around the fray*

    Shikhazra: Nonchalantly she made her way around a corner to check out the commotion, a stick of cotton candy she'd gotten in her hand. Surveying the fray, she perked up when she saw Sasuken. Sticking the entire sugary wad in her mouth and wiping her sticky hands on her pants. In a blur of black feathers she leaped forwards stabbing through his troll attacker. "Sup babe, how's tricks?" With a wrench she yanked it out.

    *Sasuken flips up, kicking the Troll on it's back, a faint trickle of electricity dancing across it's hide*

    Sasuken: Oh, you know, inspiring peace with intense violence, the usual. Good to see you again. Didn't you stay back at Bei-Fong's School?

    *Sasuken catches a glint of light reflecting off metal and grabs Shikhazra and Calaran's wrists, pulling them behind the stage just before...*

    Ynot: ENOUGH!

    *As Ynot Draws Ka-Oni-Santsu, brief waves of Light, Shadow, Water, Fire, Electricity, and Air arc away from him, the ground rippling beneath*

    Ynot: This. Is. NOT. A Battle ground! Blackout is making a presentation. We are not friends, this is no secret, but I do have respect. Sit down, shut up, and pay attention. Don't like it? Take it to Mars! The War planet has plenty space for your destruction.

    Yarighraya: In that case, Ynot...

    *She raises her hand, and the now-soulless troll rises up behind Ynot and kicks him very hard, causing Ynot to fly out of the hole the Simic troops made.*

    Yarighraya: You'll amuse me. Agents, go home, I'll deal with this fool.

    *Yarighraya steps outside with her minions, leaps atop a drake and commands her trolls, one soulless and controlled by her directly, to start beating the crap out of Ynot.*

    *Malygos scratches the back of his head*

    Malygos: Well then.

    [Mystery Planet]

    *The figure pulls back his hood, revealing long, black hair, pale skin, and golden eyes, along with long, pointed ears and eyebrows, indicating elven blood*

    Robed Elf: My name is Laros. A wandering mage of Light. I seek the same thing you do. The Galactic Leyline. Our desires happen to coincide.

    *He puts his hood back up*

    Laros: And before you ask, light magic can provide a breathing apparatus through minute healing. Now, I would respectfully request to join your adventuring group.

    Ynot: Oh. Now it is ON. Anima, seal the hole, carry on the convention.

    *As the Troll goes to punch Ynot, he catches the fist*

    Ynot: Aura Spear.

    *A bright blue rod sticks out of the Troll's shoulder, blood gushing from the wound*

    Ynot: Hello boys and girls

    *Ynot's eyes have turned black as pitch, and yellow as the sun. A twisted smile stretches wide on his face. The air weighs heavy on all those around with an evil pressure*

    HY: This is the part where you SCREAM!

    [ Convention: ]

    Serrator: Now it's a party!

    *He whirls, and summons a gaudy booth of his own, decorated with dragon bones*

    Serrator: Step right up, place your bets!

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Datrio: ]

    Wisp: *Spins to glare at Hydraxis, eyes still glowing red*

    *Her eyes quickly return to normal, as she hovers lower in the air*

    Wisp: Wisp doesn't know who 'Malygos' is. Wisp knows that you won't find the leyline on the surface. You have to go deep underground. *Eyes glow yellow, as she giggles* Go ahead! Try to get at the leyline from the Cauldron! Either the Armor Thing will kill you, or you'll just die from the seithr!!

    *She suddenly finds herself tugged down to the ground by one leg*

    Vi: Wisp, what have I told you about talking to water elementals?

    Wisp: *Sits on the dirt* ...Vi told me not to talk to elementals at all...

    Vi: Good. *Looks over at Hydraxis* Problem?

    [ Mystery Planet: ]

    Luppu: Hmmm...Well, I suppose a weak race like you has a lower threshold for withstanding poisonous gases. Sure, come along, I guess. Don't expect any compassion unless you've earned it.

    *She takes out a small cube-shaped device, and holds it out before herself*

    *It suddenly begins to blink green, blue, and purple, and hovers into the air*

    *X-shaped openings appear on each side, glowing with blinding white light*

    *The entire planet begins to rumble, and in the distance, white light shines up from every horizon*

    Ctarl-Ctarl 1: What in the name of Ctarl is going on!!?

    Luppu: This is part of the process. We have to awaken the planet's inner sanctum.

    *Suddenly, passages begin to crumble open in various burial mounds*

    *From them, skeletons emerge - with three eyes, canine features, and four arms emerge, coated in a dimly-pulsating, dark green substance*

    *One Ctarl-Ctarl delivers a whip-kick, shattering one of the skeletons and causing its outer coating to disperse into the air*

    *However, every part of his body that this substance touches is badly burned*

    Luppu: *Looks around, seeing that only five mounds have opened* Caster! What do your spells do to undead, specifically undead caused by tampering with Alchemy?

    *Her group prepare to fight off the dozens of skeletons as best they can*

    Yarighraya: Interesting! Incredible power!

    *She smirks*

    Yarighraya: It must be exhilarating to control that power...I'd be unable to face you myself.

    *She points at Ynot, her hand glows blue, and some of the cytoplasts are ripped off the dead troll and grafted to Ynot's armor*

    Yarighraya: Now...that armor...hm. Are you strong enough to bend it?

    *Yarighraya forces Ynot to begin pulling at his own armor, either straining himself or ripping the armor apart, or both, while she readies a magical bolt*

    Malygos: Now that that's over with-

    *A black portal appears next to him, and a tall, bald, bearded demon with pale skin, long, black horns, legs ending in hooves, hands with long, black nails, almost like claws, and black armor trimmed with gold.*

    Malygos: Mephistroth! I haven't seen you in such a long time! How good it is to see you!

    *Mephistroth speaks in a slight Slavic accent*

    Mephistroth: I've been busy, you know, uniting the demon tribes under one banner, letting darkness fall upon the universe, the usual. You?

    Malygos: Oh, same old, same old. Delving into secrets man wasn't meant to know. Though, evidently, I was.

    *Mephistroth chuckles at this.*

    Mephistroth: Anyway, my Mo'arg technicians have managed to fuse fel energy, usually so difficult to control, into a machine of fel iron. Lacking creativity, they call it a fel reaver.

    *Two Mo'arg, grotesque, misshapen demons with multiple parts replaced with machinery, step out of the portal, followed by a massive black robot nearly as tall as the roof of the convention itself, with the chest cavity with multiple holes in it, venting green smog and flames.*

    *He raises his hands, and enriches the area with light magic, rejuvinating the Ctarl-Ctarl and Laros while causing the undead to fall down and crumble into dust.*

    [ Datrio: ]

    Vi: Seithr is pollution from depleted mana. The Cauldron was an attempt to use the qi from the Leyline and previously-stored mana to produce a superweapon.

    Goon 1: And they failed?

    Vi: They succeeded. That particular superweapon escaped during Yellow Thursday. Now, all you'll find down there is scrap metal, seithr that corrupts and mutates, aaand...Well. You'll see when you get there. If you live long enough to see him, that is.

    Kokonoe: Now, now; an expedition to the Cauldron and I wasn't let in on it?

    *She's walking down the street, followed by Makoto and Tager*

    Kokonoe: I can provide you with armagi; they will economically and efficiently disperse the seithr harmlessly from your immediate vicinity. If worst comes to worse, I can send in the Subject - she's almost prepped for combat, and she was designed to process seithr. She'll actually be even more deadly in that element. There's just one matter of retrieval...

    Vi: Oh God, Professor, not this bullcrap again -

    Kokonoe: Shaaaaaddap! *Turns back to Hydraxis* Hakumen has taken up residence in the Cauldron's vicinity. If you agree to defeat him and bring him back alive, I'll lend you the armagi. If you kill him, I'll shut the armagi off while you're in the depths. I have tabs on his vitals...I just can't get him back to my lab.

    Kokonoe: An SS-Class Binding Spell should keep him down long enough to secure him in the apparatus I've prepared. Do we have a deal?

    Luppu: SHUT UP!! *Glares at them* Four times, I told you, then stop. When you guys chant more than four times, you start breaking things. *Hmph!*

    *She turns to look back at Laros, as her comrades scuff the toes of their boots in the dirt*

    Luppu: This planet is part of the puzzle, to locating the Galactic Leyline.

    *She points off to the horizon, where a veil of light still glows*

    Vauer then starts the engine on the ship, and they start to leave system. "One question though, which side of the edge? Any edge? Any way?"

    The two aliens seem to find no trace of anybody with a spare map of the local system in the port.
    "No map, brother. May need to cause trouble to get map, yes?"
    "Trouble, no. We need just map! But no map, no way to get to system!"

    [ Datrio, West City: ]

    Kokonoe: Hakumen is fused to the Susano'o Array. It's a living armor that has made him absurdly strong, fast, and durable. Other than that, he doesn't use magic, and only by virtue of Kusanagi can he even reach mid-range.

    *She takes out a small device, and hits a few keys on it - a hologram is projected, showing a katana, or perhaps a nodachi longsword*

    Kokonoe: Kusanagi, second among the Nox Nyctores in power only to Masamune. Now, if you had Masamune on your side, Hakumen's ### would be grass, and you'd be the mower. Unfortunately, that sword's a fickle broad. She only chooses to listen to that b#####d, and that's only on a good day. Anywho, that's a tangent.

    Kokonoe: The point is, you'll need every bit of power available to take him on. He was the second strongest of the Six Heroes, and is the second strongest being on this planet. Now, no matter what you - specifically, you the water elemental - do, do not let Hakumen slash you with Kusanagi. It'll be the last mistake you'll ever make.

    Vi: ... *Sigh* Kusanagi is specifically designed to harm magical beings. If you get cut, then it will begin to tear apart the magic holding your body together. Basically, you have to dodge. Every single time. Else, you'll just be a puddle on the ground in two strokes.

    Kokonoe: Luckily for you, he's slow as a glacier. The Susano'o unit makes him incapable of using the speed he had as a normal human. If he had Kusanagi, without the Susano'o unit, you wouldn't stand a chance. *Sly kittyface*

    Vi: Professor, don't taunt the people who are helping you. *Facepalm*

    Kokonoe: *Siiigh* Aye, Captain Viriathus. I will behave. *Fingers crossed behind back*

    Vi: I see your hand back there, by the way.

    Kokonoe: Yes, I know. Don't care.

    *Over the armagi, Kokonoe delivers a message*

    Kokonoe: Do not remove these for any reason. Once you're in the basement level, I can use these to triangulate Hakumen's position. If he sneaks up on you, there's no way you can escape him. If I tell you to run, run. Hakumen is slow, but he's persistent. Get to high ground, and rain every binding spell you know how to and can cast upon him. If you need reinforcements, tell me. Vi might just have a few tricks. *Heh heh heh* Hakumen might just get some unwanted air conditioning in his little den. Queen B###h, out. *Klik*

    *The ferry clicks and hums and whirrs to life, ready to be piloted*

    [ Dead Planet: ]

    Luppu: *Leads the group further, and further, and further out*

    *They begin to come across patches of greenery, which grow larger, and merge together*

    *Soon, they are crossing a field of grass and flowers from horizon to horizon*

    *Ahead is a gigantic mountain range, beyond which the purple glow can be seen flowing into the sky*

    Luppu: *Raises her hand, to halt the group* This is simple. *Reaches into her travel pack*

    *She retrieves a vermillion and gold mace, small, with a flowing design and rounded features; below the head are drill-like spikes, ten in a ring*

    Luppu: *Walks around, tapping her mace at the rocks, ears a-twitch* ...Mmhm...Mmmm...Mmmmmhm...Mmmmhmmm. *Keeps her mace laid on the spot, and takes out a small marker with her other hand*

    *She makes a spiral in that spot, which begins to glow a moment later*

    *Then, she leaps up, grabs the mace with both hands, and brings it down onto the spiral*

    *The entire area rumbles, and a network of cracks race up the mountainside*

    *With a tremendous groaning and roaring, the mountain collapses under its own weight of ages, into the glowing abyss beyond*

    *As soon as the way becomes open - a gaping chasm opened so that it widens upwards from the bottom - the purple lights flash repeatedly*

    *The rocks hover into the air, suspended by lavender wires that are invisible from some angles*

    *From below, an aggrieved voice shouts up*

    ???: Good God, is that a Ctarl-Ctarl up there? Don't try to tell me you aren't - only you damnably mad cretins would go through a mountain like that. *Deep siiigh* Well, since you seem so hellbent on invading my miserable existence, come right on in. I'll brew you a cup of loathing for creation, I hope you like yours with extra lip.

    Luppu: For an immortal creation of the First Builders, you are in excellent form!

    ???: Up yours! *Causes the rocks to dissolve in the threads*

    *The group finds a set of stairs at the other side of the divide*

    Luppu: *Looks to Laros* Ready?

    [Space Ship with Kratos]
    After several hours, the ship arrived. "Yes, we are here Kratos. Jump now, this gravity is too much for me to handle very long!"
    He then had to pull thrusters backwards to top speed, barley pulling him out from the gravitational pull.
    "Go, now!" He opens up the side door with the bridge extended.

    *User Malygos shakes his head, as the Architect, User Ferret, and User Ynot turn away, shutting their doors. He looks at his own door, debating leaving*

    UMalygos: No. I refuse. I will not allow this place to be sundered by foolish conflict. I'll be damned before I allow this to happen.

    Malygos: Well, then, you are mine. It is always good to welcome a new minion into the fold.

    Mephistroth: Anyway, Malygos, no doubt you have another brilliant plan up your sleeve?

    ???: Ah, sorry. Forgot to change form.

    *A tall, dark-skinned, bearded human with reptilian eyes, clad in a black labcoat steps forward*

    ???: My name is Nefarian. Birth name Blackwing, if you must, but I prefer Nefarian.

    Laros: I am ready. Although it is unnecessary to indulge in undue athletics.

    *He conjures a bridge of solid light across the chasm, and begins to step across, channeling.*

    [ Mad Scientist Convention: ]

    *Nearby Malygos's group, a pair of human-like figures stand*

    *One is a tall man, with wizened, tan skin, and long, messy gray hair; as well as a thick beard, and a ponytail at the nape of his neck; over his form is draped a voluminous red robe with golden threadwork and white fur trim*

    *The other is a girl of slight build, with fair skin, jawlength, straight pink hair, and amber orange eyes; from above her temples sweep upward narrow, golden horns, and she carries a huge, carved and hollowed horn*

    ??? 1: Hmmm.

    ??? 2: That was a suspect 'hmmm,' father. Was that a 'I'm in the mood for draconic justice'-'hmmm'?

    ??? 1: Your lack of faith in my self-control is disheartening, daughter. After all, he may know where to find that Knowledge girl - he, or perhaps his company. I shall ask my question and we shall take our leave.

    ??? 2: *Puts a hand on his arm to stop him* ... *Leans in and whispers* Do not embarrass me with a juvenile scuffle, dad. Especially not a juvenile scuffle that could upend this station.

    ??? 1: *Rolls eyes, and blows out a sigh* I will be on my best behavior, Latta. Have a little confidence in your father. *Strolls over*

    *He draws near, wringing his hands out of his cloak's sleeves*

    ??? 1: Now, is this young man before me really my old acquaintance? *Offers a hand for Nefarian to shake* It's Groularougarn, in case I've slipped your memory. I must say, despite the more accommodating form for the setting, you haven't changed a bit! Pardon my interruption, but may I beseech you and your distinguished group here for some help?

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Ctarl-Ctarl Group, Dead Planet: ]

    Luppu: You misunderstand. Our contact isn't across the divide - he's at the bottom of the divide. Did you, perchance, notice this planet's lack of a magnetic field? The almost halted rotation? The measly heat, afforded by artificial processes?

    *She throws down a long rope, and connects it to some kind of device that she affixes to her belt*

    Luppu: The native race, thinking quickly, used artificial heating to try and sustain themselves to finish their project - an enormous archive, wrought from the cooled metal core. They all still died. This is as hot as this planet ever gets - a few months from now, and it'll be frozen solid. Buuut that is neither here nor there. I hope you can levitate down! WHEEEEEEEE

    *She gleefully rappels down at high speed*

    ~ ~ ~

    [ Datrio: ]

    *The island is still dead, and still reeks of seithr*

    Kokonoe: Wait. ... ... ... I'm picking up - what the hell?! What is dark energy doing - S**t S**t S**t!! Be on your toes! The mission just went to - kzzzzzztch*

    *Suddenly, the sky goes dim, and the area gets a bit colder*

    *A quiet giggle can be heard - then, the singing...*

    ???: Lo~rd Mil~lenium~ is in search of you~ Looking for the heart, now, have you heard the news~? Maybe you stole it from him? I'll see if it's true~

    *From out behind the main pile of rubble strolls a short, whip-thin girl, with familiar coal-gray skin and a row of cross-shaped scars on her forehead; she has a head of short, messy, dark indigo hair, and as her golden, slit-pupil eyes size up the group, her smile grows just slightly wider*

    ???: What have we here? Did you guys come here looking for the Cauldron, too?

    *She giggles, and steps politely away from the entrance to the Basement*

    ???: The White Susanoo kind of fell down, and hit his head. On the corner of a table. Repeatedly. Unfortunately, he's difficult to make dead, and he almost got me with that damn sword. Do you think we could make a deal?

    *She holds up her hands in a peaceful gesture, which does very little to alleviate her malign presence*

    ???: If you can take the White Susanoo out of the equation, then I can break the wards on the Cauldron. Then, all of its energies will be yours for the taking. That is actually the first step of Lord Millenium's plan for the Cauldron. Serendipity, mm?

    Ynot: It's time to go.

    Sasuken: But Shikha...

    Ynot: Don't care, we have a very important date to keep.

    Blade: By chance are you referring to that parade you want to crash? Cause that's kinda selfish.

    Ynot: No, a funeral to attend. The Parade comes after.

    *Ynot taps his Com*

    Ynot: Crew, load up.

    *Ynot's crew slips out of the convention and back on board the Cabana Prime, taking of into space*

    Ynot: Bearings set, engage hyperdrive.

    Sasuken: Engaging. Hull integrity 78% and degrading. Damage localized in the starboard engine, top deck, ninth deck, and eight. Midsection, floors 1 through 4. Repairs are needed.

    Ynot: On it. Hokagetsu, with me.

    Hokagetsu: Right behind you.

    Blade: He seem a bit edgier than normal?

    Sasuken: A bit. You Toa aren't very perceptive about the lives in the universe, are you?

    Blade: No, why?

    Sasuken: Klak died. Ynot isn't happy about it. I'm afraid he might do something rash.

    Blade: Like what? Kill the guy responsible? That isn't rash for him, that's a Tuesday morning.

    Sasuken: I don't know. I just feel something worse is imminent.

    *Ynot and Hokagetsu return, covered in red goo*

    Shaern: What...

    Hokagetsu: Please. Don't ask.

    Ynot: Any other problems?

    Sasuken: Vultran's still a burnt crisp

    Ynot: I'm not this teams white mage.

    Asumaru: Do we HAVE a white mage?

    *Sonia points to Kurenitsu*

    Sonia: I think Kurenitsu counts.

    Kurenitsu: No. Just. No.

    Shaern: Vultran's kinda our medic. Not really an all purpose healer, but it's close enough...

    *Sasuken and Ynot glance at each other*

    Sasuken: MEDIC DOWN!

    Ynot: OUT OF MANA!

    Sasuken: ABORT, ABORT!

    *The crew gets in a hearty laugh before they arrive in orbit of Malchior IV*

    Xeno: We're 'ere.

    Namah: *Is wearing a sleeveless black dress, with a long skirt; not a bit of decoration on it, save for slits halfway down the side to accommodate her digitigrade legs* ... *Gently squeezes Zev's shoulder* It's okay. We're out of view, for now. Let it out before we're there.

    Zev: *Places a hand over face, and begins to shake* I should have...Been there...I...I should have helped him...

    Namah: By the time we knew, it was far too late. And chances are, you'd end up magnetizing our allies to the situation, most of whom would die. Don't be angry at yourself for being alive. Be thankful that you can mourn Klak here.

    Heathcance: Oh -whassacomeandago- I am so -winga-dinga- tired of this forced self-repair -ai caramba- I was trying to further your -crikey- research and I made one -croissant- mistake and you punish me like this! Also, I personally think the language filter you installed me with is a piece of -maple syrup-.

    Bonney: You seem to have a lot to deal with. I have your replacement body ready, just give information to the Cybots about how to attach you, and Bob's your uncle! Just don't use any weapon systems until I'm ready to see you in person - I don't want you getting yourself killed with the new Stasis weaponry.

    Nefarian: Ah, good to see you again, old man. It has been far too long. What was it you called me...ah yes, "A mad tinker trifling with forces beyond his ken?" Anyway, Groularougarn, how's the family?

    *Nefarian smiles, shaking Groularougarn's hand*

    Nefarian: We've been busy up at Blackrock Mountain, trying to create the ultimate dragon and whatnot. We very nearly succeeded - unfortunately, Experiment Number Seventy-Five proved...unstable. He went mad, and we were forced to put him down. My lesser creations are going well...but my first desire is still unreachable. Anyway, these men are not with me. I certainly know of that infamous upstart Mephistroth, and the tyrannical king Malygos, but I don't have firsthand experience.

    *Nefarian shrugs, still smirking a bit*

    Nefarian: I'd certainly be willing to aid in your quest - however, I have my own request. My mate recently died, and I've had myself a shortage of eggs. If you could somehow find me some, then I'd certainly help you.

    ---[Outside Convention]---

    *Mephistroth chuckles*

    Mephistroth: Devious, Malygos. Always what I've come to expect from you, old friend.

    Malygos: Indeed. So you're on board?

    Mephistroth: One hundred percent. But...I sensed-

    *Malygos grows grim*

    Malygos: I know. We need to go.

    *A teleporter appears before them, with Anzu, clad in a black suit and tie, waves them in*

    Anzu: Come on, you two. Klak...you know what happened.

    Laros: Hmph. Levitation is barely a cantrip; I certainly can do so.

    *He waves his hand, the bridge of light vanishing in a flash, and his own body glowing with golden light, causing him to start to descend gracefully into the pit*

    Laros: Anyone who makes a joke about my feminity gets blinded.

    ---[Datrio]---

    Hydraxis: I don't really care who gets what, only that my master's plans are satisfied.

    *He puts his hand to his face*

    Hydraxis: A simple mission, he said, routine realignment..

    *He waves his hand dismissively*

    Hydraxis: If that's what you want me to do, then certainly we have a deal. I care not for your quest - only ours.

    *Suddenly, a metal man appears out of thin air next to his grave. He looks more robot-like in appearance, with hints of pistons and plating all over his body despite none having existed there for a very long time. Heavy armour is present on his chest and shoulders, dark silver like the rest of him. He stretches a hand out and places it on top of the stone, letting out a deep, croaking voice*

    ???: "Ah, Klak... I never thought death was possible for either of us. So important we were. If you are dead... really dead... your legends are safe with me, and will exist in the millennia you were promised."

    *He strokes two fingers across his grilled brow, realizing that he will be soon greeted by other mourners*

    OOS: Good to be back too guys. I really need something to let my imagination play with.

    *Suddenly, Latta is at his side, with a hand on his shoulder*

    Latta: What about eggs that are dormant? We've been saving eggs that can't hatch on their own. We'll give them to you, provided that you have a way to get them to hatch. *Looks up at Groularougarn* Now, father...Please, civilly, explain our situation.

    Groularougarn: ...Yes. *Hand reverts to normal* You see, the planet we reside on has been experiencing absurd weather - random floods of scalding water, burning snow, lightning, etc., etc. I had suspected that Gorgon who had existed on our soil once, but I received word that she returned with her master injured - and was forced to seek our refuge from a flood.

    Latta: An alchemist discovered that somehow, our atmosphere has been saturated with a strange essence. There is only one mage we could think of who would be feasibly able to tell us what to do.

    Groularougarn: Do you know where we can find Patchouli Knowledge?

    Hydraxis: Alright. Let's get this over with, finally.

    *He raises his hand*

    Hydraxis: Alpha unit, you are to provide supressive fire. Concentrate fire on one area - our opponent has durable armor, and it's going to take all we've got to penetrate that shell.

    *He indicates another group*

    Hydraxis: Delta unit, sneak around back. Look for any openings in its armor, and tag them. I will then use my own power to flood his systems and destroy him.

    *Hydraxis smiles*

    Hydraxis: Give 'im hell, boys.

    Sasuken: He was their friend, too, Ynot. They have every right to mourne a fallen comrade.

    Shaern: How cold can you be, metal head?

    Ynot: You don't get it do you?

    *Ynot begins levitating, drawing his sword and releasing it to Bladewing state, glowing with an orange aura*

    Ynot: I can't heal wounds, but I'll be damned if I let someone like klak go down THAT easily.

    *Ynot's chest glows and the outline of a cube illuminates infront of him*

    Ynot: GET BACK HERE!

    *Ynot punches a whole in time and drags Klak from the moment he was to die, pinning him to the ground*

    Ynot: Where were you during the battle with Omega Supreme?

    Kratos: Wha..What in the name of Olympus was THAT?!?!

    MY: Your curses. Your hopes. Your despair. Your dreams. Your Past, in short. None of it matters to you now that you are permanently in our employ. The rest of you may wish to empty yourself of the same, if you wish not to be burdened by thoughts that may distract you. Kratos here has so much past that he simply could not keep it all in while taking up this post. Those that have grief with you will no longer pursue you, but those who value your life will no longer care, either.

    *It's a being in a skintight, silvery suit, with a pale purple, vertical line down over the face; over the left hand is a huge, double-barreled weapon of some kind, while the right hand holds tightly onto a glowing dagger*

    *Lying there on the floor, though bruised and sickly, is indeed a girl with the exact visage of Noodle*

    Groularougarn: *Gently picks the body up, though it sparks and attempts to kick him* Come. The least we can do is bury this poor wretch like the human it could never be.

    *He and a still-shaken Latta follow Nefarian through the portal*

    [ Datrio, Sector Three Lab Basement: ]

    Hakumen: *Barrels through most of the attacks, although the blows dealt by Hydraxis slow him down just a bit*

    *He roars, faceless mask shuddering, and swings his blade into a console's side*

    *A spray of molten metal is sent hurtling towards the troops*

    [ Dead Planet: ]

    Luppu: Fair enough. Oh.

    *They exit into a huge space, extending far, far out unto a gaping opening in the floor*

    *From above floats down a shimmering sphere of lime green light, which suddenly flashes*

    *It expands into a Zafara, but with lime green fur, six fingers, and four ears*

    *Above his left eye is a row of four smaller, empty white eyes, and a large, jagged hook curves outward from his left wrist*

    ???: Well, welcome to my personal hell - that being interaction. I am Y'tirh, left behind by the blithering idiots I was meant to sheperd to protect their Archive. They said they were just going to collect research data, and naturally, they all went and killed the last of themselves. Take whatever information you want, and please, save asking me for help as the last resort.

    Y'tirh: Before you ask me something, ask yourself - did I reboot the file? Did I read the terminal's guide? Did I ask the moron next to me? If all of those have been exhausted, then, you can bother me with your simpleton problems. I'll be over here in the corner, reflecting on what a disaster I am. *Flickers out of existence, and reappears crouched, facing a corner*

    Luppu: ...Someone needs a snack. *Takes out a handheld device, and approaches the center of the room*

    Other Ctarl-Ctarl: Snack!!

    Y'tirh: Shut up you morons!

    Other Ctarl-Ctarl. Sorry.
