On another note… You guys should start getting into your next dungeons. Or at least form some groups already.

Topic: Forum Games / A "Small" Adventure (Gameplay) - Tutorial Levels! (The second battle begins!)

Dragon Mantis

In other situations, the Dragon Mantis would have preferred to observe its opponents for some time before making a move. But the situation is rather urgent at the moment. If the Mantis doesn’t make a move now, it is likely to get overwhelmed by the swarms of enemies.

The Dragon Mantis attempts to fly into the air, where the baby beetles cannot reach it. It then breathes a gout of flames at the baby beetles, hoping to kill at least 3 of them in one attack.

[Fly into the air, then Fire Breath (5 energy, ranged) at baby beetles.]

Be careful what you say. I have an extremely fragile ego, so I just might be tempted to destroy your character for daring to suggest that he could easily defeat the main antagonist.

And now, another NPC. I did say NPCs yesterday, plural.



Name: Akazaki Airi (赤崎 愛璃, real name); Iris / Airisu (アイリス / 愛璃子, stage name); Ai-chan (あいちゃん, nickname).
[Being Japanese, her name is written in the order of family name before first name. Do not get it backwards.]

Gender: Female.

Age: 18?

Class: Exorcist.

Appearance: Iris appears to be an extremely attractive 18-year-old Japanese girl. At 154 cm, she is rather short, and has a petite physical build, so that she generally appears cute and huggable, though she still has curves in the right places if she wants to display sex appeal; her three sizes are 80 cm / 57 cm / 80 cm (I’m only including this because I included Lilia’s measurements, m’yes). Her skin tone is clearly eastern Asian, though on the fairer side, and appears smooth and nigh flawless. Her face is beautiful in a bright, cute, lively way, projecting an air of almost childlike innocence and enthusiasm, with an extremely infectious smile. She has wide black eyes, and her long, straight black hair is tied in the twintails hairstyle that one sees all the time in anime, tied by cute-looking hairclips that seem to be different every time she appears.
Iris’s dress code is somewhat similar to Lilia‘s, generally appearing to be cute and feminine, though most of Iris’s outfits are brightly colored to reflect her name and more energetic nature. Like Lilia, Iris likes zettai ryouiki very much, and thus almost always wears a miniskirt combined with thigh-high stockings or boots. Iris is also fond of cosplay, so sometime she may dress like some anime character she likes for no reason other than the fact that she feels like it. Or she may just dress up as a catgirl maid. She does that a lot.
Iris’s Ordo Exorcistae uniform is similar to Lilia’s, with some differences. Her top is not as tight, and doesn’t show cleavage. Her skirt is pleated. Her top and skirt are both more frilly. And instead of thigh-high boots, Iris wears opaque thigh-high stockings and shoes. Of course, the whole outfit is in Ordo Exorcistae’s color scheme, and has the dark blue cross on it.

Personality: Iris’s real personality is possibly unknown, or only known by her even more enigmatic boyfriend, but the personality she projects to the world is very apparent and distinctive. She is an incredibly cheerful and energetic girl, full of enthusiasm for practically everything she does. She lives to have fun, and is thus very spontaneous, completely disregarding any and all schedules if something catches her fancy. She wants everyone else to have fun too, so she’s generally a very kind and pleasant person. She is also quite eccentric, her thoughts often wandering to random places at random times. But despite the way she acts, no one can deny that Iris is scarily competent at anything she does, and is very likely far more intelligent than what her behavior suggests. She does occasionally show a more serious side, during which she’s surprisingly calm and mature. And that’s not even mentioning that aside from the surface of her personality that is visible to everyone, practically no one can read beyond the surface, even those who are extremely skilled in reading people’s thoughts and emotions.
Iris is known to be a seriously hardcore otaku, with an extreme passion for anime, manga, light novels, and video games. She loves all things cute, especially cute girls, to whom her attraction is very obviously not chaste. But she also has a boyfriend with whom she’s very affectionate, so most of her fans agree that Iris must be bisexual, though she herself hasn’t confirmed this.

Skills:
- Inscrutable Mind: Practically no one can read beyond Iris’s surface thoughts and emotions. If someone attempts to read her mind using a telepathic ability, all the person will find is confusing, meaningless psychic static. This renders her practically immune to all mind-affecting abilities.
- Languages: Iris is fluent in both English and Japanese, and can speak both languages without any accents.
- Singing: Iris is an exceptionally skilled singer. As befitting of her personality, Iris’s voice is extremely bright, cute, and energetic, making her particularly suited for fast and upbeat songs. In addition, her voice is highly versatile; she is able to change it to a powerful and mature voice at will. The main weakness of her voice is that Iris is not as good at slow, gentle songs as some other singers, such as Lilia.
[I imagine that Iris’s voice is similar to the voice of Hanatan, who is my third or fourth favorite singer or something. Here are some samples of her singing in different styles: 1, 2, 3]
- Dancing: Iris is a skilled dancer. Like Lilia and most other idols, Iris usually does cutesy and upbeat dances that are fitting to her songs.
- Anime Otaku Knowledge: Being the hardcore otaku she is, Iris has a staggering amount of knowledge regarding anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture in general.
- Gaming: Iris is a hardcore and extremely skilled gamer. Easily beating all of the toughest bosses in Touhou is among the least of her achievements.
- Combat: Iris is highly skilled in almost all forms of combat, including various forms of martial arts, melee weapons, and firearms. No one knows how she came to acquire such combat expertise, and her fans generally settle for treating her as some kind of memetic badass.
- Occult Knowledge: Iris seems to know everything there is to know about magic and the supernatural. It’s anyone’s guess where she learned all that stuff.
Iris also possesses a myriad of other skills, which tend to pop up when people least expect them. They’ll be added here when revealed.

Biography: Absolutely nothing is known about Iris’s past before she made her debut as an idol singer when she was (supposedly) 14 years old. Four years ago, she mysteriously and suddenly came out of nowhere, and took almost all of Japan by storm with her first song, which went viral and memetic in terms of popularity. Due to her skilled singing and dancing, her cute appearance, and her energetic personality, Iris’s popularity never waned; as of now she is one of the most popular singers in the world. Even now, her legions of fans know almost nothing about Iris’s history before her debut, but most of them are content with seeing her as some kind of memetic figure whose past is utterly inscrutable to them mere mortals. It doesn’t help that Iris is an eccentric person who frequently says whimsical things, with no clear indications as to whether she’s joking or not; she once said she’s “probably” 18 years old, that she’s actually “some kind of alien” who came to Earth two thousand years ago who later became an angel, and a whole bunch of other surreal things. Some of her fans like to jokingly make up all sorts of wacky and convoluted backstories for Iris, while others insist that her past is some incomprehensible thing not meant for mortal minds, but none of them mind much; the past four years are all they need to know to love and worship her. Of course, Iris has her fair share of haters too, but she doesn’t seem to mind at all.
Iris has a very close friendship with Hoshi no Lilia, another famous idol singer. When Lilia made her debut two years ago, Iris was smitten with said debut, and approached Lilia to befriend her. Being the nice person she is, Iris helped Lilia on many things in the showbiz world. The two girls shared many interests and hobbies, and they quickly became close friends. They would frequently hold concerts together, play video games together, watch anime together, and generally hang out together. Some fans even jokingly suggested that the two of them were in a lesbian relationship… until they both got boyfriends, to the mild disappointment of said fans. Iris is still Lilia’s closest friend today, and do things together with Lilia regularly.
Iris is known to be in a relationship with “Albus”, a young man her age who is even more of an enigma than she is. Aside from being the bassist of a band that frequently accompanies Iris in her concerts, even less is known about him than about Iris herself. Among her fans, all sorts of rumors about Albus abound, to which Iris reacts with great amusement.
When the demons started appearing three months ago, Iris was one of the first people to be recruited as an exorcist, as was Albus. Albus stayed low-key, but Iris quickly proved herself to be one of the most powerful and skilled exorcists in all of Ordo Exorcistae. It is speculated that her power rivals, or perhaps even surpasses, that of a Sephirah Seed host. Because of her ability to teleport across the world in an instant, Iris is nowadays frequently tasked with scouting and communication, but the same ability allows her to continue her activities as an idol.

Powers:

- Ghost Partners: Iris does not have any ghost partners. All of her power and abilities are entirely her own.

- Oversoul: Boundary of Existence and Void (存在と虚無の境界, Sonzai to Kyomu no Kyoukai).
It is not clear exactly what Iris’s oversoul is, or what its ability is. Most of the time, it takes the shape of Flandre Scarlet’s wings, i.e. multicolored crystals arranged in feather-like patterns by two strips of some unknown black material, attached to her back. This oversoul gives Iris a plethora of seemingly unrelated abilities, some of which are listed below.
Conjuration: Iris is able to conjure all sorts of objects at will, out of her own energy, and manipulate these objects with her mind; all conjured objects are permanent. She can unconjure a conjured object by converting it back into her own energy, though this can’t be done if the magical signature of this ability is purged from an object. Technically, she can infuse an ordinary object with her magical signature, then unconjure said object as though it’s an object conjured by her, but this requires great effort and only works if she’s vastly stronger than the magic that the target object already has. Rather than combat, Iris mostly uses this ability to conjure various clothes for herself, and to aid her musical performances.
Illusion: Iris is able to create highly detailed illusions that affect all five senses and even the sixth sense. Solid objects pass through the illusions, and deal little damage, but the illusions are far more easily damaged by energy-based attacks. More powerful and/or skilled individuals have an easier time seeing through the illusions.
Teleportation: Iris can teleport to any location she can sense with her sixth sense. This can be done several times in rapid succession, but doing it too many times without resting will tire her out, like sprinting. She can also do a long-ranged teleport, to anywhere she has sensed with her sixth sense before, including halfway across the whole world, though this takes a few seconds of concentration. She cannot teleport into solid objects. By saturating an object with her own magical signature, Iris can teleport the object along with herself, though this process requires great effort. If it’s done against the object’s will, it’ll only work if Iris is vastly stronger than the object’s own magic. This is why she typically needs some time for preparation if she has to teleport someone else with her. When she teleports a foreign object, Iris must teleport herself along with said object; she cannot stay at her original place and teleport only the object.
Rainbow-Colored Bullet Curtain (虹色弾幕, Nijiiro Danmaku): Perhaps as an extension of her Conjuration ability, Iris is able to create multicolored projectiles of light to attack enemies. She can create a stupendous number of these bullets at once, and weave them in beautiful, psychedelic patterns, making her attacks outright resemble bullet hell games. Each color in this ability has an associated elemental damage effect, which are listed below:
Red – Heat damage.
Orange – Lingering burning effect.
Yellow – Corrosion damage.
Lime – Soaks into solid matter, weakens structural integrity.
Green – Soaks into solid matter, poison damage over time.
Teal – Soaks into solid matter, paralytic poison effect.
Cyan – Cold damage.
Azure – Freezing effect.
Blue – Electric damage.
Indigo – Electric shock effect.
Magenta – Ethereal damage, passes through solid matter, damages internal magic circuits and energy constructs.
Pink – Affliction of overwhelming sensory input, typically pain.
White – Holy damage, extra strength miasma purification.

Yes, I am aware how unrealistic this character looks. Yes, this in intentional. Yes, everything she has can be fully justified by secrets that I have yet to reveal. Yes, I will reveal more as the plot develops.

This character will be the one to pick up Samuel and escort him to the Ordo Exorcistae main HQ when Samuel’s Sephirah Seed powers are discovered, because of her teleportation ability. Other Seed hosts could be escorted by her too, if you want.

And now, for some NPCs.

Oh, and also. The leader of Ordo Exorcistae, Lucius, is technically an NPC as well. My real characters are Johan and Lilia. From now on, NPCs will be indicated as such in the character list.


Name: Thaumiel (Duality of God).

Gender: Male?

Age: Unknown.

Class: Demon?

Appearance: It is uncertain if Thaumiel even has a human form. If he does have one, no one has ever seen it.

Personality: Thaumiel’s personality is virtually unknown by anyone other than himself. He is almost always a perfectly calm, collected, and civil individual, but his every word and action hint at incredible intelligence and cunning. He is exceedingly cold and callous, treating everyone and everything as mere tools to further his own goals, without a hint of sentimentality or attachment. He also appears to be extremely arrogant… but one may get the feeling that such pride stems from a completely realistic assessment of his capabilities.

Skills:
- Occult Knowledge: Thaumiel possesses extensive knowledge of ghosts, demons, exorcists, Sephirah Seeds, and everything else related to the supernatural. How he gained such knowledge is unknown.
It is unknown what other skills Thaumiel has. At the very least, he has the collective knowledge and skills of all the minds he has consumed with his False Duality ability.

Biography: Thaumiel’s past is completely unknown by anyone other than himself. Those who have dealt with him before all know that he is an almost unimaginably powerful demon, perhaps the most powerful in existence; some even speculate that he was never human to begin with. Using a stealth-related ability fueled by his immense power, Thaumiel has eluded Ordo Exorcistae completely so far. Few exorcists know of his existence at all, and those that do know are not aware of his power. Currently, Thaumiel appears to be trying to gather an army of powerful demons, supposedly for the goal of obtaining an “ultimate power” of some sort. Because of this, he tends to try to nurture the growth of demons that have great potential, so that he may recruit them into his army.

Powers:

- Demonic Form: Thaumiel appears to be roughly in the shape of a 180-cm male with a lean physical build. From the neck down, his body is almost cleanly divided in half. The left half is completely clad in imposing, demonic, but still slender, graceful, and lightweight-looking armor, made of some black metal that seems to absorb light and emit some of it back out as a sinister dark sheen. Arcane sigils are carved into the armor, the eerie pale white color of bleached bone. Many of these sigils group together to form patterns resembling skeletal faces vertically split down the middle, the left side of each face frozen in fear and the right side contorted in rage, giving off an overall very unsettling effect. Gemstones and edges of the same bone white also decorate the armor. All of the skin on this left side of Thaumiel’s body are covered, including the hand and fingers. The right side of Thaumiel’s body is entirely made of a pitch-black darkness, seemingly straddling the line between solid and liquid. The darkness is roughly bound in humanoid form, with the right leg looking more or less in the same shape as Thaumiel’s more corporeal left leg. However, instead of a right arm, several shadowy tendrils instead sprout from the right shoulder. Growing out of Thaumiel’s shoulders are two wings, the left one a jet-black feathery wing of a fallen angel, and the right one a bat-like wing made of darkness like the rest of the right side of Thaumiel’s body. From the neck up, Thaumiel appears to be entirely made of darkness, but his face is covered by a nigh-featureless oval mask made of some unknown bone-white material. Carved into the mask is a black inverted cross, with the vertical part running down the middle of the mask; the horizontal portion of the inverted cross is at a height where it can split the mask open to resemble a mouth, though only darkness can be seen within. The mask is devoid of eyes. On the back side of Thaumiel’s head, he seems to have long, straight hair made of darkness. On top of his head, Thaumiel wears an elaborate crown made of the same black metal as his armor, decorated by bone-white edges and sigils, though the crown appears to be vertically split in half in the middle.
Thaumiel’s voice is highly distorted, sounding like several voices speaking in tandem. It sounds roughly masculine, but almost utterly inhuman.
This demon form grants Thaumiel the following abilities:
False Duality: After beating an opponent to the point of defenselessness, Thaumiel can consume an opponent, by dragging his opponent into the right side of his body that is made of solid darkness. He may also consume ghosts and wraiths this way. Doing so allows Thaumiel to absorb all of the victim’s memories, knowledge, and skills, and manifest demonic abilities from the victim’s personality as though the victim is one of his wraiths. When manifesting abilities in this fashion, the right side of Thaumiel’s body may morph into a different, more corporeal form, depending on the abilities. The limit of how many he can absorb, and how many he can manifest at once, is not known. However, it is known that the souls of those consumed by Thaumiel are indeed sent to the afterlife; only their knowledge is assimilated.
Thaumiel may have other abilities, which will be revealed as the game progresses.

- Wraiths: There is doubt as to whether Thaumiel was human to begin with, or if he is even a true demon at the moment, so it is uncertain if he truly has any wraiths like a regular demon. However, he does have several groups of consumed minds within himself, which provide him with abilities like wraiths do, though they’re obviously incapable of influencing Thaumiel’s own actions. These groups are the following:

The Knight: The conglomeration of the minds of various knights, warriors, martial artists, and other forms of melee fighters. These minds grant Thaumiel expert proficiency with practically all forms of martial arts, all types of melee weapons, and all aspects of physical combat in general. He can also manifest a number of melee-based abilities from them.

The Magus: The conglomeration of the minds of various scientists, engineers, politicians, strategists, and thinkers in general, giving Thaumiel the knowledge of these people. He can manifest a number of powerful energy-based abilities from these minds.

The Hunter: The conglomeration of the minds of various hunters, bowmen, gunmen, thieves, assassins, and individuals focusing on subtler forms of combat. These minds grant Thaumiel expert marksmanship, proficiency with all firearms and ranged weaponry, stealth, and assassination techniques. Out of these minds, he can manifest a number of abilities based on stealth and ranged combat.

The Scoundrel: The conglomeration of the minds of various people that do not fit into any of the above categories. These give Thaumiel various miscellaneous skills and abilities, with no real unifying themes.



Yes, this is the demon leader character I talked about some time ago.

Bloodroot

Lilah takes the pain of having her vines snapped exceptionally well, and even manages to sacrifice the rest of her vines to avoid being flattened by the falling treant. As she rolls out of the way, she summons a sharp thorn that bursts out of the ground. Thanks to the treant’s downward falling momentum, and the thorn’s own upward thrust (MAKE A SEX JOKE AND I’LL KILL YOU), the thorn impales itself into the treant’s torso… But the treant’s body is still exceptionally tough. The thorn ends up snapping in several places, and does not manage to penetrate the treant’s whole body, though a shard of it is still embedded rather deeply in the treant’s body. The treant does not appear to have suffered any fatal wounds, but its movements are a bit slower as it gets up, with a bit of noticeable struggle in them, indicating that it is in pain.

A fragment of your thorn is still inside your enemy, Bloodroot says to Lilah telepathically. Your own magical signature still lingers in the fragment. Take advantage of that. Reach out with your power, and ignite the thorn. Burn your enemy from the inside.

[I didn’t post earlier because I was waiting for gammaflux.]

[You can kill the moth demon in any way you want, qwertyuiopazs.]

Lilia

So the fire moth demon is being taken care of by the second exorcist. Ha! Take that, you gankers! And with that, all of my clones surround Cierra, golden starlight charging at the tips of their wands.

“Grrr… You think you’ve won today, Hoshino?!” Cierra snarls. “If killing random humans won’t get to you, then I’ll hit you where it hurts! Heh heh… How about your parents?” Her lips twist into a maniacal grin. “The spoiled little bitch you are, I bet you care about them a whole lot, don’t you?!”

My eyes widen at her words. “What… What did you say…?!”

“I said I’ll kill your parents, cunt!” I can hear the sadistic glee in Cierra’s voice. “And who knows, maybe the rest of your family too! I’ll let those shitheads know that they should be sorry for being related to a piece of trash like you!”

An icy cold rage seems to envelop my thoughts. At any normal time, something like this probably would’ve scared me, but I can hardly bring myself to care right now. She… She threatened my parents. And she looked like she meant it too. I can’t have that, now can I?

“Heh heh, I think I’ll enjoy tearing them limb from limb…” Cierra continues with her mad laughter. “What’s the matter, Hoshino?! Cat got your tongue? Oh, I know! I bet some of my servants would like a piece of you! If you become their fuck toy for the rest of your life, Hoshino, maybe I’ll consider giving your parents a short and painless death! How about it?”

“Shut up, bitch.” That’s all I say before I unload my full power on her.

For a moment, the whole world seems to be engulfed by a burning, golden white brilliance. But it’s all my own power, and I can see through it perfectly… see Cierra’s dark and greasy presence, as I guide thousands of bolts of starlight toward her. The starbolts are launched from all of my clones, who have surrounded Cierra, the countless streams of golden light converging upon the demon in an inescapable barrage of searing, starry death. “AAAAAAAAAAARGH!” I can hear Cierra’s scream of pure agony, louder than ever before. But I’m not done yet.

Soon, my clones run out of power, and fade away into wisps of starlight. Cierra’s whole body has been reduced to a pile of quivering, oily black ooze, looking barely alive. It looks like her regeneration has kept her alive, if barely… But I’m going to change that in a moment. With a blink of golden energy, I appear several meters above Cierra, an elaborate magic circle swirling at the tip of my wand. Energy scattered into the environment by my previous Star☆Shower attacks is rapidly gathered back into the wand for one final climactic attack.

Star☆Breaker.

An instant later, the massive beam of blinding starlight descends upon Cierra.

[No, this fight isn’t over yet, but it’s almost over. I will give each of you one more post to finish up your respective fights before I end this encounter.]

Basically, what Sypher said. If you introduced the enemy yourself, generally you can decide its actions and the results of your actions against them, as long as you don’t do anything blatantly impossible. If you created the enemy, but some other player is fighting said enemy, then you two will have to discuss between yourselves the results of the conflict. If an enemy is introduced by me, I’ll always tell you beforehand whether you can control it or not (if I forgot to do that, remind me).

So, when demons die, do they disintegrate into miasma and disappear, or does the main body stay?

A demon leaves behind a corpse when slain. Usually, the corpse is destroyed and its miasma purified by exorcists. But if left alone, the corpse will turn into miasma as it rots.

Also, can a wraith and a ghost inhabit the same body?

No. If one of an exorcist’s ghosts turns into a wraith, the exorcist will turn into a demon, and all of his other ghosts will be turned into wraiths too.

Bloodroot

Seeing Lilah trying to trip the treant with flaming thorny vines, Bloodroot mentally commands the treant to keep moving. And Lilah’s vines do not hold on for very long as the treant tears through them with its incredible strength. The treant’s movements are still disrupted by the vines, and it is not very graceful, so it begins to topple forward. Unfortunately for Lilah, it looks like the treant is going to fall on top of her, and whatever she does in retaliation is likely to be less effective due to her concentration being affected by the pain of her vines being snapped in half.

[Sorry for not posting earlier. I was kind of busy with schoolwork.]

Johan

“Take care of the other four demons”, huh? At other times, I might’ve tried to joked about it being somewhat of an unfair expectation. But now, the anger burning in my mind is leaving little room for anything else. Aranoc is putting it somewhat accurately. But for someone who has killed as many people as I have, it’s even worse. I can never bring myself to kill someone whom I consider innocent… yet Cierra killed those innocents simply because they annoyed her. To me, that is absolutely, positively unforgivable. I don’t care if this person used to be Lilia’s classmate or not. I will see to it that she does not survive past today.

Suddenly, another exorcist appears, and proceeds to quickly kill one of the demons. But I don’t bother greeting him. In a big chaotic fight like this, losing focus like that is a good way to get seriously hurt or killed. Aranoc is occupying himself with the earth-based one now… Out of the six demons Cierra summoned, there are indeed four remaining. “Didn’t you hear Aranoc?!” I shout toward them, the words blaring out of the speakers on my mech armor. “I’ll take care of you four at the same time!”

Enraged, the four demons snarl in anger and all rush at me. A humanoid moth-like demon shoots two fireballs out of the eye-like spots on its flaming wings, but they don’t even singe as they splash over my fire-resistant armor. The second demon, a vaguely slug-like creature, spits several globs of acid that cling to my armor, but the acid is rapidly burned away as I will the outer layer of my armor to become red-hot and wreathed in fire. The third one, a jackal-headed beast, delivers a lightning-infused punch at my gut. This attack isn’t as totally negligible as the other two, but it still does no more than a scratch on my armor, and the lightning barely conducts past the surface before it is destroyed by my own fiery magic. Before the jackal-headed demon can recover from the attack, I have already conjured a large flaming chainsaw attached to my right arm. The demon screams in terror as I swing the chainsaw at it, and tries to block the attack with its arms, but my weapon simply saws through its arms and then the rest of its body with a sickening sound, accompanied by more screams of terror and pain. Even though the demon is diagonally bisected now, I don’t want to take any chances, so I materialize a plasma torch on my left hand and blast the jet of superheated plasma right into the demon’s head; the demon doesn’t even get time to scream some more before its head is vaporized by the intense heat.

However, before I can do anything else, a circle of black and purple energy suddenly flares into existence on the ground around me. My head snaps up, and gets a glimpse of an armored knight-like demon of similar colors, before everything around me suddenly feels noticeably heavier than before. And then the roof collapses under me.

The roof of this stadium is quite tall, but not tall enough. By the time I’ve recovered from the surprise and thought of trying to brake my fall using rockets, I have already impacted against the ground. The fall creates a small crater on the floor of the stadium, though it doesn’t hurt much; my armor is very durable, and its insides have plenty of magic to dampen the shock of impacts. As I stand up, my mind quickly races to analyze the last few seconds. That was some kind of gravity-affecting ability, adding downward gravitational force in a cylindrical area… That knight-like demon must’ve set it up while I was fending off the other three demons. It felt stronger than the other three, and certainly smarter too; that demon is the one I should watch out more for.

Up there beyond the hole in the ceiling, I can see the knight-like demon levitating three pieces of rubble with its mind. Each piece of rubble is suffused with purple and black energy, before dropping down on me with far more speed than something of its size should have. I’m not nearly nimble enough to avoid any of the three rocks, and each one hits like a truck, despite its small size. If my conjecture about that demon’s gravity-related powers is right… those pieces of rubble must’ve been enchanted to increase their weight. Those attacks actually hurt a little. Yes, definitely watch out more for that demon in particular.

The slug demon and the knight seem to coordinate their next attacks. Streams of purple and black energy shoot out from the knight’s hands to once again draw a circle on the floor around me. As the circle completes, I immediately feel some kind of magic circuit snap into place; then the weight of everything around me feels heavier than normal once more. Taking advantage of my decreased movement speed, the slug demon sprays a large cone of acid at me from above, covering my whole armor with the stuff. The acid begins to slowly eat into the armor’s outermost layer.

Despite my current situation, I allow my lips to twist into a battle-hungry grin. “Heh… You think that was enough to hurt me?!” I shout. Then I immediately shoot a missile out of my right shoulder pad toward the slug demon. Despite the increased gravity around me, the missile still has far more than enough power to propel itself toward its target with incredible speed, far more quickly than the slug demon can react. A direct hit, a powerful explosion, and the slug demon’s whole body is reduced to hundreds of nasty flaming chunks that fly in every direction.

It’s only the gravity knight demon and me now. For a moment, the knight infuses its own body with black and purple energies. As we look at each other, I get the feeling that this particular demon is far more intelligent than it lets on.

The demon jumps, doing a diving kick at me. Concentrating power into my right arm, I deliver a rocket-propelled punch that intends to collide with the demon head-on, as I prepare to engage it in melee.



Lilia

Wow, Johan is taking care of four demons at once… Hehe, just like him. Ain’t afraid of no gankers. And the other demons are being taken care of by the two exorcists helping us. So that leaves Cierra to me. I… I’m going to have to put an end to her. She may have been my classmate, but she’s a demon now, and long past redeemable after she killed those innocents and turned them into demons. I’m going to get serious now.

The second exorcist that has come to help us shoots a few bolts of magical energy at Cierra, before teleporting away. She hisses in pain as those strike her in the back, the holy energy burning some nasty wounds in her flesh. But then a sickly green energy emanates from her body, and all of her injuries begin to quickly heal, including the ones dealt by me earlier. “Hah… That isn’t nearly enough to kill me, you pieces of shit!” She screams. Then, Cierra seems to concentrate for a moment. The pitch-black skin on her back writhes, and a pair of black leathery wings burst forth. “Think you’re the only one who can fly, Hoshino?!” With a flap of those wings, she launches herself into the air toward me, her spiky tentacles ready to strangle and shred me again.

Except it’s pretty obvious that Cierra is not very used to aerial battles. Maybe the wings are a newly developed ability? In any case, I sidestep her flying lunge easily; she doesn’t stop her own movements in time and goes way past me. I then turn around and whip out a shotgun blast of a dozen starbolts, the golden light searing holes into the membranes of her wings. Cierra grunts in pain and begins to fall, but her wings promptly regenerate, and propel her back to my height. She then snarls and sprays several jets of poison at me. But those are even easier to dodge, now that her aiming is thrown off by her inexperience with flight. I prepare to hit her again, and-

And I’m suddenly hit in the back by a fireball. Ouch!

The moment the fireball hits me, a burst of golden light is released from my body to destroy some of the enemy’s magic. As the fireball was a purely energy-based attack, the damage I took was decreased by a lot. My body also immediately releases restorative magic to heal the burns. I turn around, to see a flaming moth-like demon shooting fireballs at me. That’s one of the demons Johan taunted earlier, isn’t it…? I guess it’s not attacking Johan anymore because it realized that fire attacks are not effective against Johan? Either way, I’m now getting ganked too, with Cierra shooting poison at me from another direction. “Ahahahahaha! Die, Hoshino!” She cackles like a madwoman, as she and her mook spam various harmful projectiles at my direction.

Well. If they want to gank… I can do it too! I briefly cover myself with a flash of blinding light. When the flash is gone, there are now four of me. My three clones and I each move in a different direction to dodge the projectiles, while firing projectiles of our own. Hehe… Even though I look less intimidating than Johan, underestimating me is a very, very bad idea. I’m going to teach Cierra and her mook the hard way.

Sorry for not posting, guys. I have some homework due tomorrow, so I might not be able to post today either. I’d like to ask the players in my characters’ current battle to not advance it much without my input, since it would not make sense if your characters just fight off all the demons while mine stand there and stare blankly into space. This’ll only take a day.

Eclipsion

Annie, Annie, Annie,” Eclipsion speaks in an incredibly patronizing tone, while shaking his head. “If you don’t grow out of that temper of yours, you’ll never become strong enough to tear me to pieces, you know? Ekekekekeke…” Then he turns to Justin and everyone else, and sighs. “Yes, yes, you’ve all done your fair share of fighting,” he says with surprising amiability. “I was going to let you all go soon anyways, but seems like I lost the track of time! Annie is such a delightful person to be around, isn’t she?” He make a few more grating cackles. “So I’ll be going now. But Annie,” he turns to Angeline again, and his expression is practically dripping with glee. “Those swords of yours look pretty weak and pathetic, don’t you think? Such a shame… You clearly don’t need them yourself, so I think I’ll be keeping them for now. Who knows, maybe I’ll find ways to make them better!” As he finishes speaking, all of Angeline’s swords pull themselves out of her body, and fly hilt-first toward Eclipsion; he then takes hold of each with one of his tentacles. “So long, dear! I look forward to spending time with you again!

And with that, the darkness suddenly vanishes from the golem’s body, as do Angeline’s swords. A moment later, the golem collapses, having melted into a puddle of water. Another moment later, everyone finds their senses engulfed by an all-encompassing purple energy. When it clears away, they’re now all inside the healing pool, feeling the water’s energies slowly seeping into their bodies and replenishing their lost power.



Bloodroot

The treant is too large and slow to avoid most of Lilah’s explosive seeds. They blow out chunks from the creature’s wooden body, and set it on fire, dealing a fair amount of damage. However, the treat is extremely tough, and thus its movements do not seemed to be hindered by the injuries. It walks toward the Tree of Life, and attempts to grab Lilah, but to no avail; she’s far too high up for it to reach.

Using the terrain to your advantage, I see, Bloodroot speaks telepathically into Lilah’s mind. This time, through the mental contact, she’s able to feel his cold and uncaring nature somewhat more clearly. Very good. However, you will not be able to rely on terrain every time, Bloodroot says. Leave the tree. I want to see how you will deal with such an enemy if you do not have the environment to your advantage.

Dragon Mantis

The Dragon Mantis dislikes small, enclosed spaces. As such, it ignores the rotting tree trunk, and continues trying to escape from the swarm of baby beetles.

[FYI, Cierra has an ability that creates a wraith out of anyone killed by her, using her own demonic miasma and the fear and pain of death as catalysts. The newborn wraith will be weak, which enables her to control it; it might break out of her control later if it grows strong enough. Just pointing this out in case it isn’t clear. It is normally not the case that someone killed by a demon will become a wraith for sure.]

Johan

“From Lilia’s exchange with it earlier, that demon is an exorcist-turned demon,” I say to Aranoc gravely, “so it’s likely more than just ‘somewhat powerful’. I don’t think it’s a match for Lilia… but we can almost never be too careful, especially in situations like these.” Oh, right… I should introduce myself too, shouldn’t I. “I’m Johan. And you already know who Lilia is, so.” After confirming that he’s held on tight to my back, I activate the thrusters in my armor, propelling us upward in a burst of fire.



Lilia

“God fucking damn it, Hoshino!” Cierra continues to scream like a madwoman. “Stay still so I can kill you!” At the same time, a solid glowing green eye has opened up on each of her palms, out of which she’s shooting jets of nasty-looking green energy with alarming frequency and speed. When one of those grazed me earlier, I began to feel numb in the affected area, like from her venom earlier, until I healed it away again.

Agh. I don’t like attacking someone I once knew personally, but dodging around like this won’t accomplish anything either. And since I can fly while Cierra can’t… I conjure my wand again, and gather a ball of starlight on its tip, before shooting the ball at Cierra.

“You think that’ll work on me, bitch?!” Cierra hisses, and fires two streams of green energy from her palms. They strike the ball of starlight head-on… but the ball simply explodes, bathing her in waves of searing golden energy. “AAAAAAARGH!” She shrieks in agony. After the light fades, I can see the surfaces of her skin charred, a foul burnt smell emanating from it.

The next moment, I see Johan flying up to the roof, carrying the exorcist with him. He nods at me, and I nod back, before turning my attention back to Cierra.

“God damn you to hell, you fucking half-Japanese shitcunt!” Cierra is literally hysterical with rage. Wow, she was never this bad when she was human… Then she sees Johan and the exorcist. “Oh, so it’s three against one now, huh?!” She snarls. “Then let’s see what you’ll say about this! Come on out, guys!”

With a broad sweep of Cierra’s arms, numerous glowing green eyes seem to open up in the air itself; it takes me a moment to realize that those are actually portals. From each portal walks out a demon, until there are at least six more, before the portals close and disappear. The demons all glare at us with eyes full of malice.

“Heh heh… What do you think, Hoshino?!” Cierra’s face twists into a crazed grin. “Anyone killed by me becomes a wraith under my control! That includes you three… After I fucking tear you to pieces, you’re all going to become my slaves! Ahahahahahaha!”

For a moment, I just stare at her in shock. This demon… Is she really the same person as the girl I knew in high school? No…

Before I can say anything, Johan is the first one to speak. “These people… You killed them. Why?” His voice is cold and hard.

“Oh, them?” Cierra laughs harshly. “They were fucking annoying, so I killed them! The pain and fear drove them insane, and now they’re all my servants! Isn’t that great?! I have power now, and I can do whatever the fuck I want!”

Johan says nothing more, but I can practically feel his anger. The next instant, several machine gun turrets have already appeared on his armor, and began spewing red-hot bullets toward Cierra and the rest of the demons.

“Aaaaargh!” Cierra shouts, while trying to dodge out of the way of Johan’s bullets. “Get them!”

And then the six demons rush at us all at once.

[You can make up abilities for these demons, but they shouldn’t be too advanced or powerful. Those are practically newborn demons, after all.]
