Last Soul Standing - Chapter 1
Eight days had passed since Rou, Stark, Nicolai,  Keyen, Vulcan, Kye, Sanya, and Alexsi left the order’s world in search of Eldritch Civilization. They found themselves in an underground system of caverns, but later found the surface. They’re making their way south, hoping to run into The Haven Knights, so they can regroup with the Eldritch Council of Warlords.
The Order and their friends let them pack a large manner of items, along with a large food supply. But, with their eldritch heritage to thank, they had enough food to survive in the caves, as Eldritch men do not grow hungry as fast as humans would.
The Eight of them were walking all day, taking a 3 minute break every hour or so. They ran into several corrupt monsters attempting to pick a fight with them, but the Eight of them working as a team were able to crush any demon in their path.
Keyen and Nicolai were the ones doing most of the direct fighting, and both of them received slight injuries. They were not in

Gabriel, Rou, Gill, and Kate, who held knowledge pertaining to cooking, got to work on preparing a meal for everyone after the Corruption within the Order’s world was now destroyed.
Grateful for their Efforts, The Order wanted the Eldritch Warriors to stay before they head off to their World again to head back to the fighting.
“You want us to stay with you?” Stark asked.
“Yeah, I mean, I know you have places to go, but… want to stay and have dinner with us?” Jess asked.
“I could go for that. Afterwards, you mind if we pack some things we may need? Like, Potions, maybe?” Sanya asked.
“Of course.” Said Gabriel.
People were willing to help the four of them prepare a meal, and things got done quicker. With their cooking knowledge, Kate, Gill, Rou and Gabriel did a majority of the work.
Eating dinner and talking took up most of the evening, where they had shared personal stories, and mockery of shipping continued.

The Sun finally rose.
Everyone was waking up and getting ready for a massive battle. They have no idea who or what lies within that Infernal Dome.
Gill prepared a breakfast meal for everyone, much to their delight.
“Well… I guess there’s nothing left to do but to go for it.” Magnus said.
Everyone got in a position to see the Dome.
“What’s the plan?” Aiden asked.
“I suggest we use stealth methods to thin out the Corrupt Forces, and gain access to the dome itself. After that, We can bombard the place with cannons.” Nicolai suggested.
Everyone liked that idea in one form or another.
“I’ll go do that. I can use my power to cloak myself, and kill off a bunch of the Corrupt Minions.” Kate said.
“I’m a trained Assassin, If anyone can get in there, it’s me.” Stark said.
Ivor handed  Stark an invisibility potion. Stark walked over to the chest were everyone had put their items, and he pulled out

By the Time Alexsi and Isa managed to return back to the Order’s town, The sun was beginning to set, While the townsfolk returned to their houses and took shelter for the night.
“Hey guys. How’d it go?” Olivia asked, looking at Alexsi and Isa.
“A Mechanical Spawner was placed there, but we smashed it to bits.” Isa replied.  
“Okay, So, The Formless Flesh was destroyed, As well as the spawners in Isa and Harper’s world's.” Jess said.
“Well, What about that Corrupted Tree? And, Petra and Axel?” Alexsi asked.
“They took Sanya, Gill and Magnus with them to destroy it.” T.T. told him.
“How’s Kate doing?” I’m surprised she took Nethra’s Death harder than we did, really…” Alexsi added
“I can go check on her, perhaps.” Aiden said.
“Alright,  just hope she isn’t beating herself up.” Maya said as Aiden walked into the temple.

Kye and Olivia, being the only two who hadn’t gone on some kind of journey, were each looking up and down the streets for any sign of danger. With all of their friends on some kind of mission, they needed to kept a watchful eye for a corrupt presence.
Olivia was checking on the main street leading to the fortress when she heard a familiar voice call to her.
“Olivia! We’re back!” Said Jesse. She, along with Sanya, Rou, T.T., Petra, and Nicolai walked up, back from the surface.
“Jesse…?” Asked Olivia worriedly.
She looked down and saw the blood all over her amor. “Oh, don’t worry, Olivia. It’s not mine, but it’s still gross…”
“How’s the town holdin’ up?” Petra asked.
“Haven’t seen any corrupt monsters within the city. No sign of Oxidai either.” Olivia informed them.
“Maybe your friends found something in the Darkest Dungeon…?” Nicolai wondered.

Back in the warrens beneath the town for the third time, Jess, Rou, T.T., Sanya, Petra and Nicolai descended the labyrinth of the Swine to destroy the festering abomination.
“This place gives me the creeps…” Muttered Jess.
“That’s natural. It still disturbs me, even after being at that hamlet for two years.” Sanya replied.
“What about you Rou, you ever seen anything like it?” Petra asked
“No. I have heard stories from the Elders before. Some good, some… not so good.” Rou told them
“This place DOES kind of scare me.” T.T. told them.
“Verrall was killed a place like this back home.” Sanya said.
“Who’s ‘Verrall’? A Friend of yours?” Asked Petra
“Yeah. She died trying to fight the swine, and… she reminds me a lot of T.T. A crafty thief, and very good with throwing knifes.” Nicolai explained.

No Attacks of any sort took place overnight. Dawn rose, and the citizens began to walk the streets and take care of daily work. They were cautious of any Unholy attackers, however.
The Order and their friends were waking up and eating breakfast. Some of them by themselves, others with their friends.
Everyone was getting dressed and doing their morning routines.
Isa went downstairs to see Gill and Maya eating some pieces of bread and a cookie, sitting on the stairs.
“Maya, Gill, Hello. Mind if I take a seat with you two?” Isa Asked
“Not a problem, Isa. Have a… stair.” Gill replied. He was going to say ‘seat’, but they were sitting on the stairs.
Maya rolled her eyes, but Isa chuckled. She sat next to Maya, leaving her in the middle.
“So, this ‘Darkest Dungeon’ place…” Isa began

Dawn rose an hour and half later. Nothing had happened before dawn, so they had no worries of fending off an ambush.
Some of the group were waking up while others were still asleep. It had been a long night.
Ellegaard, Jesse, Lukas, Nicolai, Alexsi, Gabriel, Harper, Soren and Emerald were awake at the crack of dawn while everyone else was still asleep. The nine of them were gathered around a table at one of the corners of the large room, discussing a plan to take back the order’s fortress.
Kate and Axel slowly opened their eyes. After checking their surroundings, they saw their friends gathered at the table.
“Huh? Kate?” Asked Axel, looking around more.
Kate sat up and put on her glasses, looking over to where everyone was gathered, she rose to her feet.
“I guess they’re thinking about a way to get the fortress back without getting slaughtered by Ghouls.” She said
Some more people began to stir.
Axel got up and walked over to the table where the disc

No one dared make a sound. Ghouls did not relent on pounding the door, but, thankfully, they couldn’t breach it.
“What are we supposed to do?” Asked Ellegaard.
“Well, Going out to fight them would be a bad idea… half of us don’t even have armor.” Said Maya
“Will they go away at dawn?” Asked Soren
“They don’t like the light, but it doesn’t kill them.” Said Rou
“They ARE much weaker in the daylight, but i don't think that will help. We’re in a building. The sun can’t reach in here.” Nicolai added
“We best look for another way out.” Gabriel said. “But if that was the only door… does anyone have a pickaxe?”
“I got one. Should I dig out the ceiling?” Asked Lukas
“Don’t let it cave in and crush us.” Said Kye.

Dawn rose over the sea of the Eldritch world. Petra, Lukas, Axel and Jesse were sleeping calmly underneath the deck of the ship they took with the Nomadic army, as if the tide’s waves gently rocked and cradled them to sleep.
Axel’s eyes slowly opened. There were Eldritch people walking about the ship, but, thankfully, they did not disturb Axel or his friends in their much-needed slumber. Looking over to his left, he noticed Jesse, Lukas, and Petra sleeping peacefully and silently.
Jesse still had a bandage over one of her arms, where a Corrupt, Mutant Jellyfish dug it’s tendrils deep into the flesh of her arm, causing her to bleed profusely.
Petra took a slash from the Scythe of a Wraith they encountered before reaching the Nomadic Stronghold. She appears to not be in pain, but Axel couldn’t help but worry.
Lukas had his fair share of injury before, but as of right now, He was in good condition.
Physically, anyway.

Having gathered the weapons and potions needed for the fight, T.T. Led Ivor, Alexsi and Gabriel to the caverns underneath the town.
“Looks like some sort of underground tunnel system…” Ivor said, looking around the place.
“Oxidai built this?” Asked T.T.
“I looks too old for it to be built by him…” Said Alexsi.
“Didn’t Aiden and his friends say they built a bunker underground?” Asked Gabriel.
“... Gill and Maya said so, but… they never said anything about a place like this.” T.T. pointed out.
“It’s dark and unclean. We’re only here to kill the monster, not catch The Plague. The Sooner the Better.” Ivor grumbled.
They walked down a hallway. No monsters or items to be seen. Just a wooden door.
T.T. opened it. Nothing inside other than a pile of bones.
Gabriel rummaged the remains.
“Nothing of interest here.” He told his friends.
They found another door.

Eight days had passed since Rou, Stark, Nicolai,  Keyen, Vulcan, Kye, Sanya, and Alexsi left the order’s world in search of Eldritch Civilization. They found themselves in an underground system of caverns, but later found the surface. They’re making their way south, hoping to run into The Haven Knights, so they can regroup with the Eldritch Council of Warlords.

The Order and their friends let them pack a large manner of items, along with a large food supply. But, with their eldritch heritage to thank, they had enough food to survive in the caves, as Eldritch men do not grow hungry as fast as humans would.

The Eight of them were walking all day, taking a 3 minute break every hour or so. They ran into several corrupt monsters attempting to pick a fight with them, but the Eight of them working as a team were able to crush any demon in their path.

Keyen and Nicolai were the ones doing most of the direct fighting, and both of them received slight injuries. They were not in serious pain, and still able to walk.

“We still can’t find anyone in the wasteland… how many people have been killed?” Asked Kye.

“Way too many. Seen a lot of fallen adventurers in my time.” Said Keyen

Alexsi was slowly waving around the Order’s Amulet to scan for corruption.

“So, What do we do now…?” Asked Vulcan as they walked along the stone path.

“We can’t fight The Cultists given our current condition. We’ll head back to Solanguard and come up with a new plan.” Said Nicolai.

“Still, as the way things stand, we’re going to need powerful tactics. Ide, Iona, Nethra, Lovet, Vaux, Carnet, Vane, Dougal, Verrall, and Darcy are all dead.” Alexsi said sadly.

“Well, If we’re finding a new plan in the haven empire, I’m sure we can come up with something. There has to be SOMETHING  we can do.” Said Rou

“Well, I suggest we head back to the knight’s realm. We’re within the area of the Haven Empire, and we’re bound to find someone.” said Alexsi.

“Good point, wasn’t Northcross up ahead?” Asked Vulcan

“No. You’re confused with Dunmoor, I believe.” Added Nicolai.  “I doubt it’s far, and there should be some kind of Haven outpost not too far from here.” He Told them

“So, you guys have a whole nation of knights like you guys?” Asked Kye

“Yes. There have been Human wars in the past, and we’ve recently fought with Demons. But we’ll vouch for you that you're among the good humans.” Said Rou

“Alright. Thanks.” The Houndmaster replied.

Kye, Rou, Nicolai, Vulcan, Alexsi, Keyen and Sanya kept walking along a grassy path, with nothing in sight but some destroyed towers and outposts.

They scoured out the area for any supplies that may be helpful for their survival.

There was a caravan trail with two broken down wagons, damaged beyond repair. But inside, there was some food, a sword, and some medical supplies. Stark took the sword with him, and the others packed the rest of the Items.

Nicolai and Keyen were poking around the abandoned stone tower to search, when Nicolai, taking a brief look out the window, spotted two people in the distance.

They were both Eldritch Females. One had short brown hair and green eyes, dressed like some form of Doctor, Like Alexsi. The Other was a Knight in silver armor and a helmet, but the woman’s face was visible. She had brown eyes and white hair.

“Excuse me! You two, can I ask for some assistance?” Asked Nicolai

The two of them turned around. With Nicolai, Vulcan, And Alexsi dressed in similar attire, it was safe to assume they were Eldritch.

“Uhh… May I ask who you two are?” Asked Kye

“I am Sylvia, A Knight of The Haven empire. This is Ellaine, The Doctor who came with me out here. Do you people need some help?” Asked Sylvia

“Yeah! Is there a nearby town or something?” Asked Vulcan

“We’re not far from Dunmoor, actually. Are you alright?” Asked Ellaine.

“Yes, we were battling The Necromancers in the Human world, but… now we’ve returned. Kye here is from that place that was attacked.” Said Alexsi.

“We were out on a supply run. Come with us to Dunmoor. We have many enemies to fight, and many miles to travel.” Said Sylvia.

Sylvia, Ellaine, Keyen, Sanya, Kye, Vulcan, Stark, Alexsi, Rou, and Nicolai.

“You’re willing to trust people just like that?” Kye Asked Rou

“It works differently than in the human worlds, actually. You see, with so many people and things around here dead or dying, plus the fact that a lot of other people from other worlds hate Eldritch people, Those of us here think it’s best to put old rivalries aside, and fight a common enemy. We’re all the same people. We all want the same thing. There’s no point in making the situation even worse by starting senseless battles with one another.” Explained Rou

“Others hate you to the point where they start a war with you? What, because your skin is blue? Seems a little absurd.” Said Kye.

“Other Humans have waged war to take over Stashan, It’s resources, or simply wanting Eldritch Genocide. But you’re better than that, Kye. The Haven Knights will be happy to learn that not all humans are bad.” Rou Added

Kye Nodded. It seemed understandable. I mean, people may not have a choice but to form alliances where their world is at the edge of extinction. And Bigger groups only means more safety.


The 10 of them made it to the top of a hill when they spotted a castle in the distance.

“Dunmoor. Solran was actually here, trying to parley with the Sylvan Domain.” Said Sylvia.

“Solran was here? Well, he was the one who organized the expedition force to that hamlet. I’d be best if I could tell him the status.” Said Nicolai

“That would be best to tell everyone the news, I suppose.” Said Vulcan

“Here we are.” Said Ellaine

The Gates opened to grant the group access. It closed behind them, and inside, there were all kinds of buildings, shacks, houses, and stone towers, with the main castle in the center. The walls look like they have recently taken a beating, as there was a large group of Eldritch men and woman working on them.

“Now, I should go talk to Solran. It would be within our strategic interest to tell everyone the news of the Necromancers, The Hamlet,  The new findings that there are more surviving worlds, and that not all humans are bad.” Said Nicolai

“I think we should look for a place where we can talk with the local warriors and rogues, maybe embark on a mission and find some supplies for the army here.” Said Rou.

“I’ll tag along.” Said Sanya “Plus, We can dump off the extra supplies the order gave us to let someone else use them.”

“You know what? Why don’t we all go? We could use the extra strength of a large group.” Suggested Ellaine.

“You guys should do that. I’ll tell The Knights about everything that has happened.” Said Nicolai

“Alright. We’ll attempt a foray into the Weald just north of here. Let’s go to the stockhouse and get what we need.” Said Sylvia

Everyone except Nicolai followed Sylvia to the guild, and then the warehouse, so they could find an objective to complete, and the supplies necessary to do so.

Nicolai took a deep breath and sighed.

He turned the other way and began to walk across the streets of Dunmoor.

He walked past a blacksmith. The entire town and everyone it looked as busy as a massive bee’s hive, forging weapons and armor, and getting troops ready to fight demons. Catapults, Hwachas, Ballistae, Ammo Carts, and Cannons were being moved up and down the streets.

Nicolai went into the main castle tower, climbing the stone stairs, passing by one or two Eldritch men as he ascended the tower.

He made his way to the top, now gazing high over his knightly home.

Looking to his east, he saw what seemed to be a sea of cabins, barns, farms, and wells. A stage coach was rolling through the area, and what seemed like a hundred men were tending to the fields of wheat, potatoes, carrots, and pumpkins.

Looking to his South, He saw towers that seem to cut into the sky. The Mage guild, The Training Grounds, The Garrison, The Archer’s tower, and City Hall. You could almost touch the sky atop the towers of the Haven Castles

Looking to the North, he saw a part of the wilderness. An Abundance of trees, hills, grass, and a river. The route was littered with broken tanks and war machines used in the sieges against the demons, with some men currently salvaging the scrap from the aftermath. And taking a closer look, he saw his friends, heading toward  the corrupted woods.

The Town was holding up well, in spite of terror and madness all around the entire Eldritch world.

Nicolai descended the tower. With his friends gone into the haunted woodlands, the best thing he could do was go to Solran and tell him about the situation.

Back on ground level, he made his way across the streets, and headed to the base of city hall

Opening the double doors, he finally saw him. Solran was there.

His white hair, Luminite armor, and Eldritch blade made him easy to recognize.

“Oh? Is someone there?” Asked The Old King, as he turned around, now facing Nicolai

“Yes, how can I-”

Solran cut himself off when he saw Nicolai. He remembered him.

Those Blue Eyes. That Red Hair. Recollection flashed in Solran’s eyes.

He remembered Nicolai. When he was only 15, he had followed Solran as a mentor, teaching him the ways of battle.

“N… Nicolai…?” Solran stammered in disbelief.

“I am here, Solran.” Nicolai firmly told him.

“... So you have returned from that… unholy abyss… dare I ask what happened?”

“Solran, Nethra and Vane have fallen, but my brother lives. There were several Knights, and even a young druidess by the name of Carnet, from the Sylvan domain, who rallied to that cause. Several other renegade warriors joined us. Sadly, I must inform you that among all the brave Eldritch warriors, only a quarter survived. I was not up to this task.” Nicolai explained.

Solran tilted his head downward, looking at the stone floor for a moment, then refocusing his attention to Nicolai.

“How many…? How many are dead because of this…?” Asked Solran

“Ten. Ten of those warriors have failed in their attempt to breach the abyss, however, we are alive.” Nicolai said

Solran looked down again, and slowly walked to the left side of the room. Nicolai walked closer.

“Do not fear, Solran. Not all hope is lost… I found another world, the land of the order of the stone.

Humans. Good Humans. They were willing to help fend the vile cultists. They are not barbaric and bloodthirsty like our ancestors fought for centuries, in fact, i’m as shocked as you are.

They risk their lives, fighting for justice… simply because it’s their nature.” Nicolai explained.

“Good Humans…? And… their populace was willing to help us?” Asked Solran in a surprised tone.

“Yes. one of them was left with no other place to go, and a deep hunger for battle, so… he came home with us. He’s fighting in the mournweald alongside Eldritch people as we speak.” Said Nicolai

“For the longest time I had thought Eldritch kind was cursed by all…” Said Solran

“Those Brave Humans most likely saved our lives, Solran.

Lukas, Kye, T.T, Petra, Magnus, Emerald, Kate, Gill, Maya, Olivia, Gabriel, Soren, Ellegaard, Aiden, Ivor, Harper, Isa, Axel, and human twins both named ‘Jesse’... but opposite genders.”

“... I am… I am not sure what to say.” Solran muttered loudly

“Well, Not only the humans. The Surviving Eldritch Warriors are here,but they’ve embarked to the Weald. Keyen, Vulcan, Alexsi, Stark, Rou and Sanya. On our way here we ran into two more: Sylvia and Ellaine.” Nicolai explained.

Solran nodded.

“Nicolai, if what you say is true…” Solran tried to say

“Yes, Rational Humans.” Nicolai replied

“I really wouldn’t want to start a conflict with those humans. Maybe… you could be our ambassador to the humans?” Asked Solran

“They consider me a friend, even after all that’s happened. I accept, and
I can fill out this order. They trust me.” Nicolai firmly told the king.

“Good. We can cooperate and establish an alliance. I don’t want to fight him.” Solran said, as he sounded worrisome as he spoke. Being 51 years old, he is well aware of what humans may do…

“Alright. Thank you, Solran. that sums up the basis of what happened with the 2 years I was gone. Might I Ask what transpired in our absence?” Asked Nicolai

“Well, more Eldritch Warriors have died, our engineers have been working on advanced war machines, and… We’ve heard about Earth.” Said Solran

“Earth? Well… based on stories I’ve heard, it may be best not to intervene with them.” Said Nicolai

“I’m Well Aware of that, Nicolai. A Rogue named Caen explored the world. A few Humans saw her, but she bolted before anyone got hurt. No trouble with the humans, but traces of demons.” Said Solran

“Demons on Earth? Well… would it be within our interest to destroy them? Maybe the humans would see that we’re not the monsters we’re portrayed as, and prevent another human war.” Said Nicolai

“I personally think it would be best to kill the Unholy monsters on earth, without attracting the Human’s attention.” Said Solran

“True… What do you suggest?” Asked Nicolai

“We can send rogues willing to fight them. They’ll be able to destroy the demons swifty, and not trigger another war.” Said Solran

“So, people like this Caen girl?”

“Yes. That was the plan.”

The Doors to City Hall swung, open, and another eldritch man entered.

“Melchior. What’s the status with the humans?” Asked Solran

“Caen reports that some humans are beginning to build weaponry using Corruption...” Said Melchior

“It’ll poison the environment…” Said Nicolai

“Let’s have Caen and the other rogues go and destroy them before they can cause any harm. We don't need to cause trouble. Get in, destroy the corruption, and get out.” Said Solran

“Well, we can organize some operations.” Said Melchior

“Alright. We can’t let it spread too far.” Added Solran.

Melchior exited city hall.

“I may have an idea. Do you know where Caen is?” Asked Nicolai

“She usually hangs around the thieves guild, in the basement of the tavern. She’s got a black stealth suit, with brown eyes and short orange hair.” Solran told him

“Thanks. I’ll be going.”

Nicolai exited and went to look for the Thieve's Guild. Entering the Tavern with several people at various tables, he walked down stairs, to find even more tables where people were talking, enjoying a drink, or some other activity.

He saw saw the woman that fit into Solran’s description. The young rogue was in fact wearing a black suit, and had short orange hair, with brown eyes.

Caen was talking with another Eldritch friend of hers, who was also female. She had short orange Cyan eyes.

“Excuse me?” Asked Nicolai

The two of them turned. “Yes?” Asked Caen

“Caen, is it? Yes… I was wondering, may i have a seat? There was a… concern. Regarding the humans.” Nicolai said

“Yeah, if you have an idea, spit it out. We think these humans may have some beef with us…” Said the other girl.

“Alright, May I ask what your name is ma’am?”

“I’m Romenel. Who might you be?”

“Nicolai. Anyway, Solran had the idea to send rogues like you two to the human world. They were suing corrupt weaponry, but we have no clue as to who they intend to use for, or how they got it…” He Said

“Alright. We’ll have a chat with the old man, and we can work something out.” Said Romenel.

“We don't need to hurt anyone, really. Just need to get in close and blow those corrupt machines sky-high.” Said Caen

“Works for me.” Said Nicolai.

Nicolai left for the guild after he finished talking to Romenel and Caen. He scaled the stairs of the castle walls, and looked over towards the rest of the city.

He hadn’t been here since he left for the helmet with all his friends, two thirds of which are dead.

2 Years. Nothing has changed. Humanity for the most part still hates eldritch kind, as they are left with a horrible, warped, false impression of them from rumors and lies.

If The Humans plan on using Corruption to kill of Eldritch people, Solran would have no choice but to start another human war.

Romenel and Caen will need to be very cautious. They have no reason to expect any mercy from the Humans.

The sun began to set. All of his friends were currently in the Weald do who knows what.

Walking down several streets, Nicolai eventually found and Inn, and he arranged to sleep in a room for the night, until his friends arrived.

Nicolai was safe within the Inn, as there were more than enough knights watching over every inch of the city.

He removed his armor and set it on the floor, right next to the bed. He leaned his sword against the wall.

He decided to sleep in his normal clothes. He laid down on the bed, and didn’t even bother getting under the covers.

Nicolai dozed to sleep about a minute later.

Gabriel, Rou, Gill, and Kate, who held knowledge pertaining to cooking, got to work on preparing a meal for everyone after the Corruption within the Order’s world was now destroyed.

Grateful for their Efforts, The Order wanted the Eldritch Warriors to stay before they head off to their World again to head back to the fighting.

“You want us to stay with you?” Stark asked.

“Yeah, I mean, I know you have places to go, but… want to stay and have dinner with us?” Jess asked.

“I could go for that. Afterwards, you mind if we pack some things we may need? Like, Potions, maybe?” Sanya asked.

“Of course.” Said Gabriel.

People were willing to help the four of them prepare a meal, and things got done quicker. With their cooking knowledge, Kate, Gill, Rou and Gabriel did a majority of the work.

Eating dinner and talking took up most of the evening, where they had shared personal stories, and mockery of shipping continued.

The townspeople as well we're also grateful for their help, seeing how The Eldritch warriors had fought so valiantly.

“Still can't believe Oxidai just bailed like that.” Gill said.

“I find it odd too. He doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who’d just go running scared.” Petra added.

“Maybe that was a cowardly move, but we did end up running from that Formless Flesh, so… Touche.” Kye added.

“Good point. I guess it’s the smartest thing he could’ve done.” Ellegaard said.

“I get the feeling he’s got something up his sleeve, though.” Nicolai added. “He always does.”

“I mean, with the army he had, plus his own power, he had a reasonable shot at beating us. Why would he leave? It makes no sense!” Kate said.

“Not to us. Only to him. And that makes me very, very worried. There’s a greater plan at work here.” Vulcan explained.

“Man… He can summon those blob things that almost killed me, too. He scares the hell outta me.” Magnus said.

“The important thing is that he’s gone.” Aiden added.

“I’m with Aiden. We did Win.” Maya said.

“I don’t know, It seems to easy… like he was toying with us. You’re gonna need strong tactics to beat that guy.” Jesse said to Nicolai.

“Understatement of the century.” Sanya added.

“Well, thank you all so much for your help. You knew about Oxidai, and… half of us could’ve died if you hadn’t come along.” Lukas said.

“You’re welcome. And thank you for your Help.” Rou said.

“Sure Thing.” Axel said.

After everyone was finished eating, they helped pack up as many items as possible. Food, Firewood, Potions, and Troches to help trek the Eldritch plains upon their return.

“Alright guys, That should be everything.”

“Bye! Thanks for everything!” A citizen said.

“Good luck!” Another called out.

They all headed down the portal hallway.

“Guys, mind if we talk with you before you have to leave? Individually?” Maya asked.

“What do you mean?” Gill asked her.

“Like, one at time, talk to you before you head off, I think that’s what she means.” Emerald said.

“Alright, sure.” Stark said.

Alexsi walked up the group first.

“Hey Alex. Thanks again for everything you did. I must say, your chemical weapons are very intriguing.” Ivor said.

“Well, you know me, sort of a bookworm. Alexsi told them.

“Huh. you like to read a lot, Alex?” Kate asked.

“Yeah, I’m into books too. Glad to hear we’re on the same PAGE.” Alexsi joked.

“Book puns speak VOLUMES about you, Alex.” Kate replied.

“Book puns speak real courage. You’ve got great SPINE, Kate.” Alexsi shot back.

“What do books and knight have in common? They both have good COVER.” Kate added again, giggling.

“Oh God, just… stop.” Ivor said, facepalming. Most everyone else laughed.

“Yeah, Well, I had hoped to brew together and antidote for the corruption sometime.” Alexsi said.

“That would be great, if you pulled that off.” Petra said.

“Well, Glad to be back with the rest of my friends, and to meet you. Take care.” Alexsi said as he put his mask back on.

“Heh. You’re alright, Doc.” Soren called out to him.

Next, Sanya came up.

“So, Uh… Yeah. Thanks for helpin’ us out there, guys.” Sanya said. “Not too good with words.”

“Yeah, I get that.” Axel said. “I hope you guys can handle yourselves out there.”

“I’m sure you can, Sanya. You were utterly immovable in the face of danger, and I commend the incredible bravery of you and your friends.” Emerald told her.

“You’ll do great, Sanya. Besides, you and your friends have proven to be very strong. Perhaps strong enough to get past Oxidai someday.” Ellegaard said.

“And I’m glad i meet you, too. You taught us a lot about preparedness.” Olivia said.

“Alright, thanks for the vote of confidence.” Sanya said, shrugging.

“Good luck.” Isa said as she walked off.

Keyen walked up next.

“Man, Keyen, you’re really cool. Glad to have your help with all this.” Magnus said.

“Hm.” Keyen replied.

“Well, Yeah, I’ve been doing this for a really long time. If you run into me again, I can give you a few pointers with fighting.” Keyen offered.

“I may take you up on that.” Petra said.

“Well, Good Luck dude. You are, Without Question, one of the coolest people I’ve ever met!” Axel said.

“Wait! I had a question.” Gill called to Keyen.

“Mm?” Keyen muttered, turning around.

“What would happen if i took off your helmet?” Gill asked.

“It would be very painful.” Keyen told him.

“Really? You seem like a strong guy.” Maya replied.

“Oh, I meant for you.” Keyen replied. Magnus stared in awe as Keyen left.

“So Damn Cool!” Magnus said.

“Keyen is awesome, I know!” Jesse said.

Vulcan walked in next.

“Yup, Well, you’re lucky to have me on your side. The whole arrow can and ballista thing worked out. Hey people, am I a genius or what?!?” Vulcan said, full of pride.

“You are a Crazy, Crazy Man, Vulcan. But you’re okay.” Olivia said.

“And proud of it.” Vulcan added.

“Well, Vulcan, you’ve got a long, twisted road ahead of you, and you’re really smart… so…”

As Jess continued to spoke, she pulled out a pulsing Red Cube. The Redstone Heart.

“I want you to have this.” Jess said, holding it out to Vulcan

“Seriously?” Vulcan said, eyeing it in shock.

“Yeah! I bet you can put this thing to some good use. It’s the strongest power source across our entire world.” Jess explained.

“Woah, that’s way too much responsibility for me to handle. I accept!” Vulcan said happily as he grabbed the Heart from her hands.

“Thanks guys! Take care!” Vulcan said, walking away with the Heart.

Rou was next.

“Wow, Rou, Let me tell ya, That place you grew up was pretty cool. Quite the life you got.” Axel told her.

“Well… I’m sixteen…” Rou pointed out.

“And here’s your first adventure, with many more to come.” Jesse said.

“And… Thanks for standing up for us back at the Eldritch Tribe. That was cool of you.” Lukas said.

“Thanks for helping them with the humans.” Rou said back.

“And, Thanks for cooking! You really know your stuff.” Gabriel added.

“A lifetime of practice only leaves more to learn.” Rou pointed out.

“Wow… Poetic. I like it.” Kate said.

“So Long, Everyone.” Rou said, walking off.

“What cool young Alien Girl, Huh?” Jesse said.

“Yeah. I guess they are trustworthy, and Rou proved that the Eldritch Warriors can be trusted.” Gabriel pointed out

Stark walked up.

“Stark, You were really smooth out there. You hardly ever seemed scared, even in the face of Hell itself.” T.T. said.

“Yeah, I think I handled myself pretty well.” Stark said.

“We really cut it close.” Aiden added.

“Eh, Not Really. We had a few setbacks, and yeah, Oxidai played us, But I’ll bet we can handle It. I can take any demon or human on.” Stark told them.

“And Stark, I’ve given you several invisibility potions. You’re masterful assassin, and I wish you only the best of luck.” Ivor said.

“You were Good, Stark. Real Good.” Petra commented. “Couldn't have been easy with so many of your friends dead, let alone Oxidai’s power. Well done.”

“I know you’re not too much into social stuff, but take care, man.” Gill said

Nicolai approached the Order.

“Well, If i had known Redstonia would have been destroyed by my actions, I wouldn’t have done this. I hope you can understand my wrongdoing.” Nicolai said firmly.

Kate thought about it, and realized if Nicolai had not shown up, none of this would have happened to her or her friends. But she still understood it was an honest mistake.

“I Forgive you, Nicolai.” Kate said.

“Alright. And… Thank you. The Consolation of your being had been very helpful.” Nicolai told them

“... I didn’t understand a word of that, but, you’re welcome.” T.T. said.

“Your help has been very valuable. Should I survive, I will tell the Eldritch warriors of what you have done.” Nicolai told them

“And Might I add, Even after everything that’s happened to you, when you first met me, I wasn’t sure if I could trust you, but showed me could. Even in a hopeless situation, you and your friends powered through.” Kate said.

“I did what I had to do.” Nicolai told her.

The Order loved the way he worded that.

“Take Care, Nicolai. You’ve done great.” Kate said.

Alexsi noticed Kye hadn’t said much.

“You okay, Kye?” He asked

Kye looked up, not expecting anyone to talk to him

“Oh! Yeah! I was… just… daydreaming.” Kye replied.

“You sure?” Alexsi asked.

“Sorry, just that… I missed fighting with you guys. Not really gonna have anywhere else to go, so-”

“Kye, how about you join us?” Alexsi offered.

“Really?” Kye asked, surprised.

“I mean, if you don’t want to, I-”

“No! I’d Love that! I Was always hoping to fight some evil in my life, and this is perfect! Thank you so much, Alex!” Kye said happily.

“Great.” Alex said as he High-fived Kye.

Rou, Sanya, Alexsi, Stark, Vulcan, Kye, Nicolai and Keyen were gathered at portal to the Eldritch world, provided by Kate.

“Well, I’ll see you guys around.” Jesse said.

“You be careful out there. Oxidai is no pushover.” Isa said.

“We’ll manage. I mean, didn’t you see how awesome we were?” Vulcan asked.

“It is a long and twisted road that led to this place, but it is only a stepping stone.” Alexsi said

“The Portal that stands before us will take us to Hell, but in that dark abyss, we will destroy the Corruption.” Vulcan said.

“Don’t worry. We’ve been prepared to die all this time, and… I can make it worthwhile. These may be my final words to you, but I can ganturee the Eldritch Warlords will not succumb to corruption so easily.” Nicolai said.

“Goodbye.” Harper told them.

The Eight of them charged into the portal at the same time, and it sealed behind them.

For a time untold, Corruption had destroyed world after world.  Will it be possible to destroy the malevolent force?

Only Time Can Tell.



The End.

The Sun finally rose.

Everyone was waking up and getting ready for a massive battle. They have no idea who or what lies within that Infernal Dome.

Gill prepared a breakfast meal for everyone, much to their delight.

“Well… I guess there’s nothing left to do but to go for it.” Magnus said.

Everyone got in a position to see the Dome.

“What’s the plan?” Aiden asked.

“I suggest we use stealth methods to thin out the Corrupt Forces, and gain access to the dome itself. After that, We can bombard the place with cannons.” Nicolai suggested.

Everyone liked that idea in one form or another.

“I’ll go do that. I can use my power to cloak myself, and kill off a bunch of the Corrupt Minions.” Kate said.

“I’m a trained Assassin, If anyone can get in there, it’s me.” Stark said.

Ivor handed  Stark an invisibility potion. Stark walked over to the chest were everyone had put their items, and he pulled out a Firework.

“Unload all the TNT you have in the cannon to bring down the dome, and come over to the shoreline. But wait for my signal.” Stark said, holding the firework in front of Magnus.

“Ellegaard and I can build a barge to get everyone across the sea quickly. Try to kill enemies with ranged attacks.” Olivia said.

Soren gave and Olivia and Stark a salute. Kate rolled her eyes and dived into the sea between where the group was, and the Infernal Dome. Stark dove in right behind her, and they both swam towards the wall.

When Stark got to the wall, He pulled out an Iron Pickaxe and began to chop a hole in the side of Wall, just a few inches of the sea level.

Kate helped Stark grind away at the Steel Wall with her power. She made her hands glow red hot, and padded them as hard as she could, slowly melting the steel.

They didn’t need to burrow inside, they only needed a hole large enough to fit some TNT in.

“Kate, you got something I can use to muffle the sound of the blast with?” Stark asked as he placed the TNT inside

“I can create a sound barrier around it.” Kate said.

Stark placed the TNT in, and pulled the fuse back to where he could light it.

Kate used her power to make a sound barrier, in the form of a dim green sphere that surrounded the TNT. Stark used his lighter to ignite the fuse. Hearing the hissing noise the sparks made, Kate and Stark both took a Deep Breath and dove as deep as they could.

The Explosion didn’t make much noise, but tore a hole in the wall. They both emerged from the water to see that it wasn’t quite big enough to fit into, but it was nothing that couldn't be fixed.

Kate used her power to make her hands red hot. Wit her Molten Touch, she melted off the bottom part of the hole to carve out a tunnel. Stark did the same, but with the use of an Iron Pickaxe instead of molten magic.

They made a hole big enough to crawl through and made their way inside.

Redstonia was once a proud city of engineering, but now reduced to corrupt hive, malformed for the sole purpose of making weapons of war.

“Okay, Stark, I’m going to cloak myself and trick the demons into attacking each other by hitting one of them.” Kate explained.

“Uhhh… as good of an idea that sounds, it’s not gonna work against corrupt forces. They’re all in sync.” Stark explained

“Sync?” Kate asked

“They’re all controlled by that same malevolent force. Vane explained this to me. They’d notice a mere human was in their midst if you did that.” Stark explained.

“Darn… I liked using that strategy. What do you suggest?” Kate pondered, looking at the Eldritch Assassin.

“Try to go for the neck. A common weak point among many beings, living or dead.” Stark explained.

He then chugged his invisibility potion, fading out of Kate’s sight.

Stark had his knife imbued with a blight charm, giving it a poisonous effect. He rounded the corner to see a Cultist Brawler marching his direction. He simply let him walk right past him before he drove his poisoned knife into the back of it’s neck, making it fall flat on it’s unholy face.

He eyed a staircase, being guarded by 10 feet tall skeleton, holding two large swords. He needed to scale the top and dispose of the ranged skeletons, to ensure the Order could reach the dome safely.

Using a poisoned crossbow bolt, he shot the skeleton right in the back of the head. It stumbled forward and growled, walking in Stark’s direction.

That gave Stark an opportunity to scale the wall while Kate, who was cloaked under her power’s influence, used Starlight to slash right at its leg. It stumbled on it’s hands and knees, but she stabbed it in the neck and destroyed it before it could rise back up. With no more immediate threats, She followed Stark up the stairs.

Stark was now on the walls that the Demons had built to fortify the place. Surely enough, the entirety of that wall’s top side had skeletons armed with bows and arrows.

Being invisible, it was a pretty straightforward Tactic.  He simply walked up to each skeleton, grabbed it by the chest, stabbed it in the neck, and threw off the wall so it would land outside the fortress, into the sea.

Kate made it to the top of the stairs, but her power was beginning to wear down, and there were still several skeletons in the distance.

With her power to cloak nearly gone, she simply pulled out her sword and said. “Oh, to hell with it.” She muttered as she charged forward.

She sliced the torso of a Corrupt Skeleton Archer clean in half before she turned visible again.

Seeing Kate reveal herself, the five remaining skeleton archers on her side of the Wall pointed their crossbows her direction. She ducked underneath a shot, and much to her dismay, she was facing against a volley of Unholy Arrows.

“Crap… I really don’t wanna get hit by that again…” Kate muttered.

She charged forward again, making sure to dodge any arrows. Being on top of a wall, she didn’t have a ton of room to do so.

She kept rolling and ducking under each shot as she approached the second skeleton and kicked it into the sea. Four Left.

Kate made it the third one without getting hit, but she wasn’t prepared for what happened next.

Rather that shooting her, the skeleton stabbed her with the crossbow bayonet, that Kate sadly did not noticed prior to having the sharp metal burrow into her chest.

She fell right on her back. Hard. Her chest was bleeding, but lucky for her, it was a minor flesh wound, and she would survive, with or without medical attention. Needless to say, it was painful.

Slowly standing up, clutching her wound, She slashed at the skeleton again, and barely dodged another stab from the bayonet.

A blast of fire tore the unholy skeleton to pieces. She flinched as an arrow flew a feet feet by her, but it was flying toward the skeleton, not away from it.

She turned around to see Stark had already finished off the skeletons on his side, and was now shooting at the ones Kate was trying to kill.

“Stark killed them all already? Wow. Well, he IS a professional Assassin, I guess it would make sense if he killed them faster than I could.” Kate said to herself.

Kate, Using Fire Magic, and Stark, using Poisoned Arrows, were able to kill the last three skeletons.

They surveyed the area for any more.

“Clear.” Stark said, looking around.

“I think That’s all of the Archers. Let’s let Magnus do his job.” Kate replied.

Stark lit the firework. It soared into the sky and exploded into a bright red light, clear enough for the Order to see.

“That’s the signal! Do you stuff, Magnus.” Jess said.

Vulcan pulled a pair of goggles over his eyes while he and Magnus got into position.

“If you have earplugs, you better put ‘em on now because YOLO BITCHES!!!” Vulcan yelled as he fired his ballista, hurling a TNT charge on the end of a giant crossbow bolt at the Dome.

Magnus pulled a switch, making Seven TNT charges soar into the sky.

“The Barge Ready?” Jesse asked.

Ellegaard nodded at him and said, “Alright, Everyone on. Let’s go!”

They climbed onto the wooden platforms beneath the redstone device.

One by one, they climbed aboard the massive barge. Vulcan and Magnus stayed at their weapons and kept shooting, blowing down pieces of the dome. Stark and Kate had taken cover.

Olivia was the last one to climb on the massive barge, as she started the machine up with her flint and steel.

The Barge sprang to life and began to push itself through the air towards the Dome. But Olivia had tripped as she came over to climb on. She quickly got up.

At that point, the barge was several feet away from the cliff face, so she took several steps backward to get a running start, and charged for the Barge. She took a great leap in an effort to reach the Barge, but it wasn't far enough.

Lucky for her, Petra grabbed Olivia’s hand before she could fall into the sea. She started to pull her up, and T.T. grabbed Olivia’s other hand to help her up.

Petra and T.T. pulled Olivia up, where she was now safely on top of the barge with her friends.

“Thanks.” Olivia huffed.

“Are you okay guys?” Emerald asked Soren and Nicolai

“I can’t keep balance on this thing…” Nicolai said, trying to balance.

“It helps if you sit down.” Ellegaard said. Nicolai and Soren did what she said.

“Okay. Sorry, just… never flown on anything before.” Nicolai said, sitting down.

“It is kinda hard to keep your balance on this odd device.” Alexsi added.

Yeah. not too used to flying either, but it doesn’t take much time.” Harper added.

The Barge had closed the distance between the cliff and the city. They looked down beneath the walls to see Kate and Stark fighting with a pack of skeletons armed with broadswords.

Gill, Maya, and Aiden jumped off and charged for the pack, running right by Stark and Kate to lend them a hand.

Harper, Olivia, and Lukas used their bows to try and thin down the small skeleton army that they were fighting.

The Barge was now parked against the edge of the dome, and the damage caused by Magnus and Vulcan opened an entry way for them. .

They began to run inside.

“Guys, We’ll need to get the ones outside the dome, then we’ll come in and fight on the inside.” Aiden yelled from below, dueling a skeleton army alongside Maya, Kate, Stark and Gill.

“Got it.” Soren said.

They headed inside. Ellegaard was very uneasy to see how horribly the place was wrapped.

The Ducts she once used to transport items were now being used to transport corruption. The entire place was dark, brooding and mostly likely crawling with monsters. She held a sad and grieved look on her face.

“You alright?” Petra asked her.

“The Things Oxidai did to my home. In less than a month…” Ellegaard said.

“It’s natural to be upset about-”

Before Jesse could finish, he was interrupted by Ellegaard. “It’s not sadness. It’s fear. If he can do THIS to a place on such short notice, God knows what he’s done in other worlds.”

“Ellegaard raises a morbid point.” Ivor added.

“Alright, This place has gotta be swarmed with Corrupters, right? Do you have a map, or some kind of layout?” Emerald asked.

“I remember the layout, but… No. No map.” Ellegaard said.

“Guys! How ‘bout you get up here, and Emerald and I can hold this point with the Wolves?” Kye called out to them.

“Alright, Help us get up there!” Maya called out from below.

Keyen threw his hook down to them so they would have a rope to climb. Kate was able to hover through the air with the use of her power, safely landing on the top with her friends.

Maya, Aiden and Gill climbed Keyen’s rope in that order to regroup.

Emerald and Kye Stared down at the crowd of corrupt monsters that was building up below them.

“Emerald…? You’re not gonna jump, are you?” T.T.

They seemed to ignore them.

“Get in that Dome. We’ll take care of this.” Kye said.

Emerald held an enchanted Diamond Blade in one hand and a Golden Apple in the other. She leaped downwards and landed right on top of a skeleton, shoving her blade into its spine.

Kye whistled loudly, and he, along with 15 angry wolves rushed in alongside Emerald.

They all headed in beyond the main gate, ready to fight a Necromancer and his Unholy army.

“Wow…” Lukas said, surveying his new surroundings.

“Okay, When we came here to rescue Petra, Jess and Olivia, Oxidai held them in the basement. Do you suppose he’d be down there?” Isa asked.

“The lower level seemed to be morphed into a labyrinth.” Nicolai added.

“Well, If we all rush him at once, we can beat Oxidai. We should all move at once and look for him.” Petra suggested.

“Alright. He took us down in the basement when we were captured, So maybe he’s working on some evil plan beneath us.” Jess reasoned.

“I Say we check the basement first, as unfond of them as I am.” Ivor said, raising his hand.

Everyone looked around, looking for an objection.

“The Motion Carries.” Alexsi said, heading towards the steps. Others began to follow.

Aiden and Gabriel held torches to illuminate their path. Walking down the stairs, Every inch of the dome was completely warped.

Everyone, especially Ellegaard, looked uneasy.

“Such Morbid Changes to take place…” Harper muttered aloud.

Sanya stopped when she stepped on something hard. It felt like steel.

Taking a closer look with light provided by Kate, it appeared to be a pipe. It ran upwards, into a ledge on the side of the stairwell.

“I Feel like I wanna check that out.” Axel said.

“I’ll take a look. Can you give me a boost, Big guy?” Petra asked.

Axel grabbed her ankles and hoisted her up. Petra grabbed the ledge with her hands and pulled herself to the top.

“Can somebody come with me? I really don’t wanna take two steps in this place alone.” Petra said.

“I doubt anyone does.” Soren added.

“Yeah, I can go with you Petra. We’ll check it out and head right back to you guys. If we see Oxidai, We’ll just run back and regroup with you.” Kate said.

Axel used the same Method with Petra. Lifting her by her shoes, She was up high enough to where Petra grabbed both her hands and pulled her up.

“Okay, Get back to us as soon as you can.” Jesse said. Kate and Petra nodded, and turned around to follow the pipe.

Petra went first, and Kate used her power to light up their surrounding area.

“You’re unsettled that the whole place was turned into a mecca of pure evil, right?” Petra asked Kate.

“Understatement of the century.” Kate added.

Petra froze as a Cultist Brawler nearly hit her square in the chest, striking from the shadows.

She slashed it right across the neck, making it fall backwards. Leaping in the air, she landed right on top of it, plunging her blade right into it’s chest, killing it.

“My heart skipped a beat when he just popped out like that.” Kate said, with wide eyes.

“Yeah… that could’ve gone worse.” Petra added.

They kept going until they found a valve.

“What do you think is in here?” Kate asked.

“I’d take a stab at Corruption.” Petra replied. “But… It could have some kind of power source. Water or some kind of Gas.”

“Maybe stab it open and find out?” Kate suggested.

Petra took a deep breath and drew her sword. It didn’t go so well when she was burned, as she tried to cut herself free from the corrupted vines and thickets that tried to hold her in place.

She thrusted her blade into the pipe, cutting all the way into the center of it.

No noise. Nothing sprayed out. Petra slowly drew it back, and both girls eyed the fluid now on the sword:

Blood.

“What?” Kate asked herself in disbelief. She looked over to the leaking pipe, now oozing blood.

“Oh God…” Kate muttered, shocked and scared, taking on step back, eyeing the growing blood pool next to the broken pipe.

“Ugh…” Petra graoned in disgust. “Well…. That explains what he did when he had me prisoner. He can use Blood as a power source.”

Kate didn’t say anything.

“Kate?” Petra asked.

Kate ignored her. Staring at the leaking pipe, she only stood in total shock. Enough people were hurt and killed to the point where Oxidai could build a system of pipes to use as a power source.

“He… My God, did he really…”

“Kate?” Petra asked again.

“All those people living here, and across the world… he would just…”

“Katelyn!” Petra shouted.

Hearing Petra shout her full name, she was faced with reality again.

“Kate, Listen to me. Standing in shock isn’t gonna help anything, so snap out of it and focus, alright? I find it pretty morbid that he’s killing people for that reason too, but, just... stay calm alright?”

Kate was silent, but she slowly nodded.

“... Okay. Thanks, Petra.” She said.

“It looks like a dead end, so let’s get back to everyone else. They might have found where that pipe goes, or comes from.”

Petra and Kate turned around the backtrack the area and regroup.


Meanwhile, on the outside of the Corrupt Fortress, The Walls and the top of the dome were completely torn apart.

“Magnus, I think we should go inside to regroup with the others. We can blow the place down on the inside, and the whole thing could collapse.” Vulcan suggested.

Magnus liked the idea.

“Alright, We can boat our way across, and then we’ll blow the place down after Oxidai’s done for.” Magnus said, as they both climbed down the face of the cliff and used a wooden boat to make their way to the broken walls.

Once to shore, the craters they carved were big enough to walk through. Looking to their left, They saw Kye and Emerald with their wolves up against a small army of Cultist Brawlers. Magnus drew his enchanted Iron sword and charged. Vulcan aimed his crossbow and stood where he was to provide cover fire.

“Magnus?” Emerald asked, glancing backwards.

“Let’s finish these guys off so we can get in there already!” Magnus shouted, as he charged forward and drove his blade into the chest of a Cultist Brawler.


Back within the basement of the Dome, The Group slowly marched along, surveying every inch of their surroundings. Some kind of monster, corrupt trap, or Oxidai himself could pop out at any second.

“Where do you think he is…?” Isa asked, in an uneasy tone.

“I want to find him, but at the same time, I don’t.” Lukas added.

“I Think I get what you mean by that.” Keyen said.

“Where’s Petra and Kate? We didn’t go that far ahead of them, did we?” Soren asked.

“Not too far… just down the stairs.” Gabriel added.

“Hold up. A lot of Corruption nearby.” Alexsi said, holding the Amulet. A bright purple glow filled the area.

“Any Idea where?” Haprer asked.

They kept walking down the stairs until they were met with a lake, no, a sea of corruption. There was a series of platforms acting as islands, with skeletons standing on some of them, armed with crossbows. The was a large Iron Door on the other side.

“Wait…” Nicolai said, surveying the room.

“What is it?” Rou asked.

“Haven’t we been here before?” The Azure Knight asked The New Order.

“I remember the sea of corruption with the islands, but… not in that layout.” Isa said.

“Oxidai must’ve rearranged them to throw us off.” Aiden said.

Ellegaard remained silent.

“You alright Ellie?” Jesse asked.

“Just been… getting to me, is all. My Home has been turned into a Demonic Fortress, Chock full of monsters and corrupt acid. No remnants of it’s former glory, and no hope to return it that way.” Ellegaard said.

“What are we gonna do with it after we beat Oxidai?” Asked Jess

“... It took me a year to build the Dome, and years longer to make the city. I Think we should just blow it up so it can’t be used for these terrible things.” Ellegaard said.

“Alright…” Olivia said.

“Oxidai could be behind that door…” Lukas said. He stepped forward towards the edge of the platform they were on.

“Mostly Skeleton Archers around here.” He said.

He fell flat on his back as an arrow hit him right in the chest. Jess gasped as she pulled him back with the help of Harper.

Alexsi pulled the Arrow out and applied a bandage to his wound.

“Don’t worry, Lukas, Just a Normal Arrow.” Jess said. Sure enough, Alexsi wiped the blood off the arrowhead. It was light grey, not glowing purple.

“Well, Not gonna hurt as bad, then.” Lukas said to himself as he sat up.

“Alright. Got any potions that will help here?” Soren asked.

“Ivor, how about a Stamina Potion?” Isa asked.

The Alchemist pulled out a glass bottle containing a light green liquid, and he handed it to Isa.

Isa drank it down and leaped unto the first platform, followed by Jesse and Keyen.

“Guys!” Kate called out from behind them

Petra and Kate descended the stairs behind them, regrouping with everyone.

“Lukas, you alright?” Petra asked, seeing the young adventure sitting on the floor, with a hand over his shoulder.

“Took and arrow to the shoulder, but Alexsi took care of it. I just need a minute.”

“Take Cover!” T.T. shouted.

Ten arrows rained down on the ground, sending them diving towards the stairs. Haprer and Maya were hit. Kate pulled the arrow out of Maya’s back and healed her, only using a fraction of her Elixir power.

Sanya pulled the arrow out of Harper’s back and applied a bandage.

“Hey! Any chance you could get those archers off us?!?” Jesse yelled from a distance.

They all looked over to see that the archers were shooting at Jesse, Keyen and Isa, while some of them were also focused on the larger group.

Rou, Stark, Harper and Sanya wasted no time with drawing their ranged weapons and firing poisoned or flaming arrows at the Skeleton archers on the balcony above them.

Kate threw trailing spheres of fire at the undead archers above her, igniting one of them as she hit it square in the face.

“We have Two Ender pearls. We can use them to get up there.” Ivor said.

“Shouldn’t we save one?” Asked Sanya

“Can't think of a better time to use them.” Petra reasoned.

“Alright, who should go up there?” Asked Kate

“I’ll handle those skeletons. You guys get across the platform and kill the archers.” Gabriel said. He grabbed the Ender Pearl and threw it. In a faint flash of light, he was teleported to the top, now on the same level with the undead archers.

Stark and Rou provided cover fire for Gabriel by shooting skeletons on his side of the upper floor.

Nicolai and Axel leaped unto the island platforms on the Corrupt Lake, beginning to make their way to the other side. Rou jumped over to the first one to try and shoot the undead from another angle with her bow.

Lukas stood up and drew back his bow to fire at the Undead. Him, along with his friends, were able to cut down the remainder of the skeleton archers.

Gabriel had taken arrow to the shoulder, but he was still able to fight. Slicing at each skeleton as he charged up to, as he was careful to dodge the shots fired at him.

The Skeletons on the platforms were being torn apart by Isa, Keyen and Jesse.

Isa was the furthest ahead and had killed the most of the skeletons. She jumped from platform to platform with ease, and butchered skeleton after skeleton with ease, as she could hack and slash duel swords for hours without pausing for breath.

More and More people began to make their way across the corrupted sea. But what they heard next made them froze.

“OW! G- … Son of a bitch, that burns!” Keyen shouted. He was sitting on the edge of a platform, holding both hands over his leg, burned as he had tripped into the corrupt acid.

“Crap! Keyen got burned!” Jesse said, about two platforms away. He hopped over towards him, hoping to be able to help him from getting hurt even worse.

Isa was preoccupied with fighting the remainder of the skeletons. Keyen was on his feet again, but he was bent over with his hands over his burning leg.

Jesse hopped over to where he was and handed him a glass bottle holding a pink regeneration potion.

Keyen grabbed the bottle from his hand and took off his helmet. “Thanks, Man.” He said as he chugged it down, and put his helmet back on.

He tried to walk, but Keyen ended up stumbling from his burnt leg. He nearly tripped, But Jesse caught him.

“Guys, Keyen can’t jump to get across!” Jesse shouted. Rou heard him and began leaping her way across the massive corruption pool below them, towards Jesse and Keyen.

Rou made it to their small island, where she used medicinal herbs to ease Keyen’s wound.

“You guys get in there, I can still fight.” Keyen told them.

“Right. Just go. I can watch him.” Jesse said to Rou.

Everyone was now either on the other side of the Corrupt lake, or nearly there.

“Duck!” Shouted Olivia.

Three Corrupt Spheres of Fire flew by Aiden and Rou as they tried to jump across. Corrupt Blazes had engaged.

Rou drew back an arrow and shot one square in the forehead. Another Arrow from Harper took it down.

Despite being unable to properly stand up, Keyen still had a few tricks left in the back pocket. He threw a flashbang directly at another Blaze, stunning two of them simultaneously.

Lukas, Sanya, Stark made short work of the Blazes with well-placed shots.

“Let’s keep going. We’ll be right back, hang in there, Keyen.” Jess told them.

They entered the large Iron door. Inside appeared to be a large amount of machinery.

“Wow… Olivia, what does this all do?” Gill asked.

“Looks like… some kind of Generator. It must be the Dome’s Core.” Olivia said.

“Oh, It Is! I build this directly under my workshop to power my Command Block build.” Ellegaard said.

“Let’s get some TNT here and blow it up, then.” Aiden said.

The gang emptied out all the TNT and explosives they had, but it wasn’t much, even with T.T. and Axel. Magnus had much more on him.

“Guys, We’ll have to come back to destroy the place. Magnus took most of the TNT.” Kate said.

“He didn’t use it all, did he?” Ivor asked.

“Let’s hope not.” T.T. added.

They all made their way back upstairs.

Meanwhile, Kye and Emerald had finished with the outside forces, and had regrouped with Magnus and Vulcan. Out of the fifteen wolves Emerald and Kye assembled, only three survived the fighting outside the dome. Kye and Emerald themselves had minor wounds.

Magnus and Kye held their swords out, while Vulcan held a crossbow, and Emerald held an enchanted bow.

“This doesn’t look like Ellie’s home at all anymore.” Said Magnus.

“Oxidai got rid of all her inventions, it would appear.”

The Road ahead was desolate. Normally, Redstone could be seen left and right, but now, it was nothing more than a dark, eerie hallway.

They advanced forward, passing by purple blinking lights, pipes, and ducts.

“Wow… Everyone had been corrupted so fast.” Kye said.

“Oxidai truly is terrifying.” Emerald added.

They scaled the stairway leading to Ellegaard’s main workshop, where she, with the help of Jess and Olivia, attempted to build a Command Block.

Skeletons blocked their path. Six, to be exact. Two held crossbows while the other four held swords.

Kye combat rolled to the left as arrow nearly hit him. Emerald Sniped the Skeleton archer with ease, the arrow’s power and fre enchantments being strong enough to take it down with one shot the skull.

Magnus dodged to the left as a swing from a Skeleton’s sword nearly cut him. As eager as he was to blow the unholy skeletons to bits, he wanted to conserve it to fight someone like Oxidai, or to destroy any trace of corruption.

Vulcan only needed two or three shots on each skeleton to kill it. Emerald switched from her bow to an enchanted diamond sword, thinking it would be faster and more effective. It didn’t take long for them and the wolves to tear up the six skeletons.

They took a left turn and found there to be a ladder leading upward. Sadly, Wolves are unable to climb ladders.

“Okay, just stay here, alright?” Emerald said to the wolves, patting their heads and feeding them bones.

They scaled the ladder and made it the Iron Door, with Ellegaard’s workshop on the other side.

4 Swine blocked the way, however, as they guarded the door. They were each armed with meat cleavers and wooden shields.

Vulcan’s crossbow bolts were blocked by the Wooden Shield of the first swine, but the Shield was eventually broken after several shots. Emerald took a slash at the Swine without a shield, wounding it, but was immediately hit back with the meat cleaver. She was protected by her armor, but still hurt by the cut. Magnus rammed one as hard as he could, square in the face, making it fall over. Kye leapt right on it’s chest and ran his sword all the way through it, killing it.

Two of the remaining swine ganged up on Vulcan. He smacked one of them with a crossbow, but the other tackled him to the ground. Magnus dived into action, grabbing the swine by the neck and tossing it across the room, away from the four of them.

An Arrow suddenly flew right by Emerald and hit the Swine in front of her. Turning around, Lukas had came. They were back from the basement, and more people were on their way.

Keyen came in and buried his Axe right in the skull of the Swine Lukas just shot. He yanked it back out, but then stumbled on his knee.

“Keyen! Wait! J- just don't push yourself.” Jess said, helping him standing up.

“It’s my own problem, just get the swine!” Keyen protested.

After scaling the ladder, Harper and Soren both shot at what was left of the defending force. As each member of either the Order(s), Blaze Rods, or Eldritch Warriors made it to the top, they immediately charged down the swine.

It didn’t take much longer for the lot of them to tear down the Swine.

Ellegaard looked up.

“Yeah... My Workshop...” Ellegaard muttered, staring at the door.

“I’ll bet any amount of Iron Oxidai is right behind this door.” Lukas said.

“We really need to talk about your gambling problem.” Petra said. Jess and Olivia giggled while Lukas  rolled his eyes.

“What?” T.T asked, confused

“Lukas and I always bet on things like this. And I usually end up winning.” Petra explained with a smug grin.

“I believe that is a gambling problem, by definition.” Rou added.

“So you don’t think Oxidai’s there?” Lukas asked.

“No, I believe you. I was just pointing out a problem.” Petra replied.

“Well, We’re all a bit banged up. Why don’t we heal first?” Stark suggested.

“Here Here.” Harper said.

They all sat down while Rou, Ivor, And Alexsi tended to their wounds. Kate used some of her power on Keyen’s leg.

“You gonna be alright?” Kate asked him.

“Relax Kid, We’re literally built for this kinda thing.”  Keyen replied.

“You guys were genetically modified soldiers created by humans, right?” Kye asked.

“Right.” Sanya answered

“Really?” Asked Soren in an interested tone.

“Correct. For instance, Eldritch skin is somewhat thicker. Not saying we’re better than you, but we’re given certain advantages.” Nicolai explained.

“Well, sure comes in handy for situations like this.” Emerald reasoned.

Wounds were tended by the work of Alexsi, Rou and Ivor. It didn’t take too long to get everyone back in fighting shape. Keyen struggled to walk, as his leg was still in slight pain.

Everyone stared at the door, not saying a word. Sanya put her hand on the handle to pull it open, and Gabriel did the same with the other side.

“Ready?” Stark asked. Everyone.

Some people nodded. No one dared utter a word.

The Doors creaked open, and everyone walked inside, weapons drawn.

“... Where is he?” Isa asked.

Everyone looked around the room. The Chests were empty, and the machine used when Ellegaard tried to build a command block was no longer there, as it was replaced with some form of odd, cylindrical shaped machine with a few purple blinking lights on it. The only light was provided by Kate whom had illuminated the room with a sphere of golden light, hovering on the ceiling.

“Where is he then?” Vulcan asked

Rou drew back an arrow with her bow, pointed at the ground, as she was the first to see some kind of corrupt creature rise from the shadows.

Rising in the air, it appeared to be a normal black sphere of some kind of amorphous gel.

The Eldritch Warriors had their weapons ready as tentacles grew out from the sides, but they noticed their human friends, simply staring in horror.

“Is that…” Ellegaard gasped.

“It can’t be!” Magnus protested.

“... It is! Oh Good God!” Kate shouted.

“You know what this is?” Keyen asked.

“This thing almost killed me in cyberspace after I found ellie… No way… No way! That was  Oxidai all along?!?” Magnus shouted.

“Oxidai tried to Kill us in cyberspace! This is unthinkable! He knew about us the entire time!” Soren said.

“Magnus? Magnus!” Stark shouted.

The Griefer was in too much sheer shock and horror to realize a gelatin spear was heading right for him, but lucky for him, Rou tackled him out of the way.

“We gotta kill this thing, fast!” Petra shouted.

“Is it the same one as before?” Lukas asked, panicked.

“Who Cares? Kill it!” Ivor shouted.

The Amorphous monster formed a grotesque set of sharp, black teeth and tried to bite Alexsi. He ducked underneath it, and Nicolai jumped on his back and stabbed it in mid-air.  It hovered away quickly, but stopped when Rou and Sanya nailed it with two arrows.

Kate threw some fire, making it fall to the ground. Keyen threw his hook to pull it forward and try to keep it in place. As it writhed furiously to escape Keyen’s grasp, Nicolai charged forward, jumped high in the air, and landed right on top of the monster, with his sword pointed downward.

“Begone, Foul Thing!” Nicolai barked.

The monster flew in the air, out of Nicolai’s reach.

Lukas, Vulcan, Harper, Rou, Sanya, Ellegaard, Stark, and Olivia all shot their bows at once, with only three out of the eight arrows missing. The Amorphous Alagam Flew Left and Right, Up and Down in an effort to get itself off Keyen’s hook.

Keyen was struggling to hold a grip on it, so Jesse ran over to help him secure it.

Kate threw a lightning bolt from her hand, electrocuting the monster it fell on the floor, where Petra and Jess each managed to get a hit off.

A rain of spikes flew down from the monster, hitting half the group, inflicting small wounds. Jesse was hit in his right arm, making him lose his grip.

Keyen fell on the ground as his hook was furiously ripped away. A spear like appendage was used by the monster to cut the rope dangling on the ground, with the hook buried into it’s gel.

It dashed forward and picked up Ivor, scooping him in the air and slamming him to the ground. The Alchemist struggled to get back up.

Flying around, dodging most arrows, the blob formed four sharp, black crystals, and spun them around in a circle in the air. They were fired at Harper, Isa, Gill, and Rou, who fell on the ground

“Guys!” Jess shouted, worried by their injuries.  

The Alagam Floating down to the ground and took the shape of a Human holding two swords, and began to duel with Isa.

Everyone was so panicked and reoccupied by the fighting that they didn’t realize more corruption creatures were sneaking up on them.

A skeleton smacked Lukas on the back of the head with a club, making him fall to his knees. Sanya cut it’s arm off with her machete, now given a sharpness enchantment.

Kate felt a sharp and hot pain on her back, and turned to see that spider had spit corrupt acid on her back. It burned like acid, and Kate was in moderate pain.

She yelped as the spider leapt right on top of her. Fear completely consumed her mind, as she desperately used both hands to pry the spider off. Luckily, Aiden came to her aid and stabbed it in the neck, causing it to fall to the floor, and off Kate.

T.T. Threw a TNT charge directly at the amorphous monster. Landing about 3 feet away from it, the impact and shock wave of the blast threw it back.

Isa charged with her two enchanted Iron Blades to try and stab it, but it flew in the Air beyond her reach, flew back down and slammed her right in the face.

She got up, momentarily holding a bloody nose, and threw the blade in her left hand, landing right in the center of the monster.

Just as Olivia drew back and arrow and aimed for the gelatin monster, but before she could fire, A Ghoul Smashed her right across the back, making her fall over.

Lukas, who was also just about to fire, turned to see Olivia on the ground face first, bleeding from her back. He hit the Ghoul right in the shoulder, making it growl in pain.

Stark threw his knife, landing his shot right on the Ghoul’s chest, making it stumble back even more, before it howled loudly.

Aiden took a slice towards the Ghoul, but only to have the beast dodge the attack. He thrusted forward and hit it right in the chest, falling on it’s back, the Ghoul was killed with another downward stab.

It took another round of arrows to bring the Amorphous alagam to the ground, where it was open to melee attack. Gabriel stabbed it as hard he se could straight for the center, inflicting massive damage.

Olivia got up close with a point blank shot from her bow, a moment before Sanya hit it with a Molotov, setting it on fire.

A Cultist Priest came in from the side of the room and shot it’s spine, nearly hitting Nicolai. He was able to move to the left in time before he could be hit.

“Where do the monsters keep coming from?” Jesse asked, loud enough to where it could almost be considered shouted.

“There must be a spawner around here somewhere!” Ivor shouted.

With the last finishing blow, Jess drilled her Diamond Blade into the alagam, where it then exploded, sending black ichor flying in all directions.

As everyone was preoccupied with killing the alagam, no one had noticed cylindrical shaped machine spawning the corrupted monsters. The Lights began to glow again, as something new was about to spawn.

“That’s all you, Big Guy!” Petra told Axel, pointing to the machine.

Magnus, T.T. and Axel readied some TNT charges to destroy the Machine, as they packed their charges on all sides of it.

Even as the odd mechanism was buried under TNT, they didn’t light it fast enough to stop it from spawning an Undead Bulwark, A Skeleton dressed in Iron Armor, holding an Iron Axe in one hand and a wooden shield in the other.

Gill used a downward strike to try and hit it, but he got blocked by the wooden shield. Seeing an opportunity, Kate threw a sphere of magic fire right at the shield. Surely enough, as she hoped, it caught on fire.

Maya leapt forward and stabbed the shield, hoping Kate’s fire and her attacks could break it.

Alexsi Threw a Blinding Gas Grenade, hitting at it’s knees. The Skeleton, Now Dazed and without a shield, was open for attack.

Nicolai cleaved the Skeleton Clean in half with his Luminite Blade, separating the skeleton’s waist and torso, as well as putting the unholy monster out of commission.

“Okay, We’re lighting the spawner up! Take Cover!” T.T. shouted.

The hissing of the burning fuse invited everyone to run and duck from the area, towards the door. Either running to a safe distance or ducking down and putting  their hands over their head, crouched down on the floor.

The Machine Exploded along with all the TNT charges, sending rubble flying in all directions, making a deafening explosions sound, and filling the room with dust and ash.

Everyone looked up to see the cloud of dust fading, and a massive hole in the wall. The machine was completely decimated.

“Alright… I Think we’re in the clear.” Emerald said, standing up.

“But where’s Oxidai? Is he still hiding?” Lukas asked.

“We’ve been in every room!” Ivor protested.

“Hey guys, check this out!” Lukas said from the right side of the room, looking at billboard.

Everyone saw what seemed to be some kind of Entry Log.

“What’s it say?” Gill asked.

“The Last Entry says something about working with Redstone Devices. That Spawner, I believe.” Lukas said.

“How does that tell us anything about his location?” Stark asked.

“This Entry is more than a week old, and it’s on the newest page… which means…

Oxidai’s long gone.” Lukas said.

“He just left? Just like that?” Jesse asked, bewildered.

“Why would he do that? Isn’t he hell-bent on stealing my power?” Kate asked.

“Well, he did something similar with us.” Nicolai pointed out.

“Care to elaborate?” Soren asked.

“We are out there in effort to stop him from spreading corruption too far, but… we usually ended up running away from him in certain fights. He had to run from us sometimes, too. About an even match.” Nicolai explained.

“So what does that mean?” Isa asked.

“He knows he can’t beat all of us head-on. He fled to the Eldritch world to prepare something, I’ll bet…” Sanya said.

“How does that explain the attacks?” Ellegaard asked.

“A Diversion. He doesn’t want us chasing him, so he made us think he was still here by having troops patrol the dome, and by occasionally having attack forces go for the town…

… The Bastard Baited us.” Vulcan told them.

“Damn… That was actually a good move on Oxidai’s part.” Keyen said.

“Necromancers are pretty smart.” Rou added.

“He may be an ass, but I’ll give him this: That plan was pretty boss.” T.T. said.

“I still despise Oxidai, but I have to admit, that’s a good play from him.” Kate said.

“While I’m still pissed off, A part of me is actually impressed.” Magnus added to what Kate and T.T. said.

“Still can’t believe that after we escape the dome, he was just toying with us the whole time.” Aiden muttered angrily.

“Yeah, like some kind of Sick War Games to keep us busy while he does something else.” Jess pointed out

“Damn! As much as I hate to admit, that’s good!” Gill said.

“Damn it all to Hell…” Stark muttered.

“What do we do now?” Harper asked.

“I say we blow the place to Kingdom Come.” Keyen said.

“As much as I hate to destroy the place, I have to agree with Keyen. We can’t give Oxidai a free fortress if he decides to come back here.” Emerald said.

“We can burn the place with Lava.” Axel suggested. “I brought a lot. Like, all a brought was a little food, a sword, and as much Lava as I could carry.”

“Do your stuff, Magnus.” Alexsi said.

Thanks to Jesse having a Diamond Pickaxe Handy, They Dug their way into the ceiling and out to the top of the dome, where Everyone got to work on placing TNT all across the bottom layers of the Dome. They didn’t have to stay within a dangerous range, as Sanya kept a single C4 charge handy. She could use the remote detonator to trigger the rest of the TNT after everyone was at a safe distance.

In the basement of the dome, Axel, with the help of half the group, flooded the place with lava, slowly burning away the corruption.

“Who knew Lava could burn Corruption?” Olivia asked.

“Of course! Lava is amazing!” Ivor shouted happily.

“You never get sick of it, do you Ivor?” Kate asked him. The Alchemist only shrugged.

TNT was placed at the foundation and support structure of the massive dome. T.T. and Magnus had brought prodigious amounts of it.

Plus, Vulcan had a good supply of gunpowder handy. Using some Sand from the beach, they were able to make even more.

Placed all along the rims and edges, The Detonation sequence was set. Everyone rode the massive barge back to where they had set up camp last night.

Sanya held the remote detonator in the palm of her hand

“Here.” She said, handing it to Ellegaard. “Your dome. You pull the plug when you’re ready.”

Ellegaard hovered her thumb over the small button.

“You okay, Ellie?” Magnus asked.

She took a deep breath and said. “Well, there’s nothing else left to be done with the place.


Goodbye, Redstonia.”

She pushed the button.

The Explosion set pieces of rubble, stone and glass thousands of feet in the air. Purple plumes of dust rose as debris flew and scattered into the ocean.

Everyone just staring at the pieces of metal and rock flying and splashing into the tainted sea.

“Hey… We Won.” Gill pointed out.

Everyone looked at him. Alexsi pulled out the amulet. Even the water below began to turn to it’s normal state with Oxidai’s fortress gone.

“Hey, We did!” Jess said cheerful.

“Yay… We… Sort of won. Corruptions gone from this world, but Oxidai baited us into the whole thing.” Petra said.

“We killed a crapton of demons and made a strong alliance. Let’s put it in the ‘Win’ column and move on.” Vulcan said.

“Agreed.” Isa added.

“I agree. Corruption’s terrible influence is driven from your world, but the fighting is far from over.” Nicolai said.

“Well, We can rest Easy, for the most part. Nethra’s death, luckily, was not in vain.” Harper pointed out.

“Let’s go home, and we can celebrate this properly. Not sure if it deserves one, seeing as Oxidai played us, but we kicked Corruption’s ass in this place, so what the hell. I’ll make a Cake.” Gill said.

With that, everyone followed him back home.

Corruption was purged from Three Worlds, but there was still a threat standing within the Eldritch Domain.

By the Time Alexsi and Isa managed to return back to the Order’s town, The sun was beginning to set, While the townsfolk returned to their houses and took shelter for the night.

“Hey guys. How’d it go?” Olivia asked, looking at Alexsi and Isa.

“A Mechanical Spawner was placed there, but we smashed it to bits.” Isa replied.  

“Okay, So, The Formless Flesh was destroyed, As well as the spawners in Isa and Harper’s world's.” Jess said.

“Well, What about that Corrupted Tree? And, Petra and Axel?” Alexsi asked.

“They took Sanya, Gill and Magnus with them to destroy it.” T.T. told him.

“How’s Kate doing?” I’m surprised she took Nethra’s Death harder than we did, really…” Alexsi added

“I can go check on her, perhaps.” Aiden said.

“Alright,  just hope she isn’t beating herself up.” Maya said as Aiden walked into the temple.

Aiden left to head over to where Kate was.

“Guys, I think we should put a team together to Storm Ellegaard’s dome. You saw how Oxidai completely twisted the place.” Lukas pointed out

“Why don’t you wait for your friends to return, build up some Iron Golems to guard the town, and then ALL of us can storm the place?” Stark suggested.

“That… That actually sounds like a good idea to me.” T.T. said.

“I’ll go see if Magnus and the others are back.” Ellegaard said.

Ellegaard headed down the street, being greeted by local townspeople. She was a famous engineer, after all.

She scaled the later build into the wall. Sure enough, Magnus, Sanya, Axel and Petra were heading her way. She flipped the switch to let them in, and flipped it again to close the gate after they were inside.

“Welcome back.” Ellegaard called out to the five of them.

Kate and Maya approached the group from the opposite end.

“You okay, Kate?” Kye asked.

“I’m doing okay…” Kate firmly told him. She didn’t look sad nor happy, but held a blank expression on her face, with barely any sign of emotion.

“Well, took another spawner down.” Sanya told everyone.

“Good.” Harper replied.

“Guys, The plan is that all of us head to Redstonia, and take the fight to Oxidai.” Emerald said.

“Well, Let’s see… Three Spawners down across three worlds, we’ve killed off most of the monsters, such as the Formless Flesh… yeah. I think that would be our best option.” Soren told them.

“So, Should we just stock up on items, and head off in the morning?” Lukas asked.

“Sounds good to me. We may be able to sneak in at night, but It would be better to fight them in daylight.” Vulcan added.

“Ellie, Vulcan, Axel, could I have some help setting up some cannons we can use when we storm the place?” Magnus asked.

“Sure, Let’s get to work, because we may need to blow down the walls.” Ellegaard added, walking off with her fiance’.

“So… What about enchantments? Should I apply some buffs to everyone’s weapons?” Ivor asked.

“That'd be cool.” Jesse said, pulling out his diamond sword.

“I think I could help with that.” Kate said, stepping forward. “I’ve practiced this kind of thing.”

Kate and Ivor left, as several of their friends, eager to enhance their weaponry, came with them.

Everyone had decided to go about some form of business. Soren gathered up all of the gold the Order’s fortress had within in order to forge some golden apples, as they couldn’t solely depend on the healers among the group.

Jess gathered together all the Iron and Sticks she could find and made several Iron swords to use as backup. She passed them to Kate to have them enchanted.

After Ivor was finished with upgrading weapons with his magic books and enchanting table, He worked with Alexsi to brew an abundance of potions, with all kinds of effects.

Using a new type of herb and recipe provided by Rou, they were able to brew their first samples of a grey Guardian Potion, which would increase the defense of the one who drank it. Another result of a moonglow flower with some Nether Wart and Ivor’s brewing standing resulted in a second lime green potion to increase the stamina of it’s user, allowing him or her to run or fight without growing tired.

They had two new potions at their disposal: The Stamina potion, and The Guardian Potion.

Sanya found small, spherical shaped items that appeared to be made from some kind of molten material. When she asked Ellegaard what it was, she called it a Fire Charge. With the help of Stark, they were able to make Fire Arrows for their crossbows using the molten charges.

Gill had brought a large basket full of food and presented it to the group. A variety of carrots, apples, cookies, and bread, with a cake resting ever so gently on top.

Ivor had armed everyone with poison arrows for their bows, and various enchantments for their swords, such as an incendiary upgrade to light targets on fire, or Sharpness, so induce bleeding and more overall damage.

Kye and Emerald gathered an army of wolves, amounting to about 15 to take with them. They also constructed more Iron Golems, but they would be left behind to defend the town from a potential attack.

Soren had a compass and a map of the Order’s world to bring along, ready to find the road to Redstonia.

Keyen was using a whetstone to sharpen his axe, after Ivor gave it a sharpness enchantment.

Nicolai and Alexsi both walked in the room, and Keyen held out the whetstone in his hand and asked. “Need to sharpen your gear?”

“Sure, but, Keyen, Alexsi, could I talk to you?” Nicolai asked

“What’s wrong?” Alexsi asked putting a hand on his older brother’s arm.

“It’s Kate… We’re about to fight Oxidai, and I’m not sure if it’s such a good idea.” Nicolai told them.

“Why Not?” Keyen asked, confused.

“Don’t tell her I said this, but… I fear she’s too emotional to confront Oxidai.” He explained.

“... I think it get what you mean. The Whole Nethra thing got to her, and… well, her resolve may crack in some kind of situation like that.” Alexsi said.

“Are suggesting that she doesn’t go along?” Keyen asked.

“Well… No…” Nicolai replied.

“Alright, So what do you want to do?” Keyen asked back.

“It’s not a matter of action in this case, but… Alexsi, I want to know, is my paranoia getting the better of me?” He asked.

“Perhaps that is the paranoia talking, but I think you do bring up a valid point. I wouldn’t want Kate breaking down in Redstonia, especially in front of Oxidai. If he saw that, needless to say, a vulnerability like that could be her downfall.” Alexsi explained.

“That or the Corrupt Hordes. That’s what I was most afraid of. She still feels terrible after she explained what happened with some kind of ‘Dark King’ back on Earth who killed her cousin. I think her name was ‘Maria’, but I can’t remember off the top of my head.” Nicolai explained.

“Well, okay, we’ll just keep an eye out on that.” Keyen added.

The three of them left the room to regroup and see how the others were doing with their preparations. They had gathered a large sum of arrows, food, and everyone was armed with at least an Iron sword with some form of enchantment on it.

“Can you guys think of anything else we’d need?” Olivia asked.

“Uhhhhh…. No. I’m pretty sure that’s everything.” T.T. added

Gabriel held a clock in his hand and looked at the time.

“Well, It’s about 11 at night… If we leave now, we’ll end up outside Redstonia at about 1… we could set up camp and rest, and then we could storm the place in the morning.” He suggested.

“I’m game.” Magnus added.

“Here here.” Aiden added

“I can’t think of a better idea. Let’s get moving, then.” Isa pronounced.

The engineers and griefers had finished the construction of their long ranged cannon so they could blow down the walls if necessary.

They Had 16 Iron Golems patrol the town in their absence, and they were officially ready.

Both Orders, The Eldritch team, The Blaze Rods and the rest of their friends, along with 15 wolves all headed out. Ellegaard and Soren had crossed these roads many times before to and from Redstonia, so those two served as pathfinders across the woods and plains, making their way to the island.

The Entire pathway there, Alexsi held his amulet in his hand, slowly waving it in all directions. The Green, Red, Blue and Cyan lights lit up to indicate the presence of Ellegaard, Ivor, Magnus and Gabriel, but he couldn’t get any trace of Corruption.

An hour and a half of walking later, Jesse had scaled a large tree so he could get a better view of his surrounds. Everyone kept walking until they heard him say “There it is.” From on top of the tree.

Jesse climbed down, and led everyone to the top of a hill, as he then pointed to a dome in the distance.

“Wow… The place really changed.” Emerald said.

Redstonia was nothing like it was weeks before. The Water held a faint purple tint from being corrupted. High, Iron walls were built in a ring around the area, with a few skeletons archers visible on top. The Dome had been reinforced with an Iron bracing, and the glass on top was now purple.  

“It really was warped. In under a month, no less.” Magnus added.

“Not to mention all the citizens are dead…” T.T. added

“They were huge jerks to me when I was a kid, but… man, I doubt they deserved something like that.” Emerald muttered.

Lukas was already setting up a camp at the base of the hill, and the rest of the New Order began to help him.

Magnus, Ellegaard and Vulcan began to put together an array of TNT cannons, ready to fire at the Walls of the Infernal Dome.

Kate, Emerald, T.T., Ivor, The New Order and The Blaze rods helped put together a campsite, so they could get a few hours of rest.

The Eldritch Team helped Vulcan put his catapult together, as Well as Magnus and Ellegaard, who were setting up a battery of TNT cannons.

The Camp was finished before the cannons were, and with all of them working at once, they were finished in a short amount of time.

They emptied out the remainder of their supplies in a chest Aiden brought along. It was a large amount of enchanted Iron Swords, a Few Diamond Swords, Several Bows, A ridiculous amount of arrows, A large sum of food, cookies, and a cake supplied by Gill.

Sanya put out a large pile of matches, lockpicks, a single C4 charge, 3 pocket knives, bandages, and a compass.

“You carry all that in your vest?” Kate asked with a surprised look.

“Comes in handy.” Sanya replied.

“Alright guys, let’s get some rest. At the crack of dawn, I wanna begin a raid on the place.” T.T. told them.

“I can take the first watch.” Nicolai offered.

“Alright. I can take spot number after an hour.” Maya offered.

“We've got a big day ahead of us. Some sleep will be much needed.” Soren added.

Everyone began to settle in for the night. Either in beds or sleeping bags they brought to rest on the hillside, or resting themselves atop the tree branches above them.

Nicolai sat on top of a tree, overlooking the hillside. He also had a good view of the Dome. Ellegaard was lord of the place, before the demons and undead made it their domain.

He found soon be fighting with Oxidai again.

‘How many times have I fought with that Necromancer? I’ve lost count.’ he thought to himself.

Nicolai climbed down, careful not to wake anyone up. He climbed his way up to the edge of the hill and sat down on the cliffside, with a sea of tainted water being the only thing standing between him and the Infernal Fortress.

“Nicolai?” He heard someone whisper.

He turned his head to see his younger brother climb up the hill and sit down next to him.

“Something wrong?” Nicolai asked.

“Well, yeah, just… I never really got to talk to you after I found you back in this world. It’s been awhile, has it not? Alexsi asked back.

“Yes, and… Things over time gradually grew to terror. There were points at time where I was wracked with fear. But… It helps to know you’re back.” Nicolai added.

“Say, Can I tell you something?” Nicolai asked.

“Yes?”

“Back when I had recently got to Earth and told Kate about what was going on… I was… scared.”

“Scared? Of Kate?” Alexsi asked. Nicolai slowly nodded.

“You remember how Dad always wore that eyepatch, and how he told us a human did that to him?”

Alexsi nodded. “Well, I didn’t know what to expect from Kate. Seeing an Alien, her next action would be… unpredictable.”

“I see. I was really scared without you, too. When we were kids, you had made it your job to protect me, but… after I got banished, I was alone, and… really scared. I was so relieved to find you after two years.” Alexsi explained.

“Glad to hear it. Oxidai had dumped me in the Warrens before I managed to escape, and your presence makes the Infernal Dome less morbid to me.”

“Thank you.” Alexsi said, patting his Older brother’s shoulder. “Thank you too.” Nicolai replied.

“Feeling better now that we got that stuff off our chest?” Nicolai asked.

“Uh-huh.” Alexsi replied. “I think I can sleep better now. Good night.”

Nicolai bid him goodnight and went back to staring at the Starry sky and the Infernal Dome.

“Yes, These humans along with my friends makes the task of destroying corruption seem more… possible.” Nicolai said to himself.

Kye and Olivia, being the only two who hadn’t gone on some kind of journey, were each looking up and down the streets for any sign of danger. With all of their friends on some kind of mission, they needed to kept a watchful eye for a corrupt presence.

Olivia was checking on the main street leading to the fortress when she heard a familiar voice call to her.

“Olivia! We’re back!” Said Jesse. She, along with Sanya, Rou, T.T., Petra, and Nicolai walked up, back from the surface.

“Jesse…?” Asked Olivia worriedly.

She looked down and saw the blood all over her amor. “Oh, don’t worry, Olivia. It’s not mine, but it’s still gross…”

“How’s the town holdin’ up?” Petra asked.

“Haven’t seen any corrupt monsters within the city. No sign of Oxidai either.” Olivia informed them.

“Maybe your friends found something in the Darkest Dungeon…?” Nicolai wondered.

“A way to stop corruption would be nice.” Said T.T.

“Let’s hope someone of the Eldritch Armies can undo that great foulness.” Rou added

“Yeah…” Muttered Sanya.

Kye rounded the corner.

“Guys, You’re back! Are you okay?” The Houndmaster asked

“That disgusting monster did a number on us, but we took it down.” Sanya told him.

“I Think I saw Jesse in the distance. Looks like they’re back from Soren’s place.” Kye said.

“Really? I wanna see.” T.T. said, heading towards the gates

The Griefer scaled the wall, and sure enough, Isa, Axel, Jesse, Soren, Lukas, and Gill were on horseback, heading for the gates.

“Maybe some of our friends found something?” Jesse asked.

“Best case scenario, I guess.” Petra added

The Gates opened, allowing them to enter in. a few of them looked slightly bruised and beaten, with one, maybe two cuts on a few of them.

“Bro, you alright?” Jess asked

Jesse held his arm over a small cut on his hip. “Just a Scratch, Sis.”

“You think everyone else is okay…?” Soren asked nervously.

“I would hope so. I mean, Isa said skeletons tired to raid her kingdom, hopefully Harper is doing okay in her world…” Said Olivia

“It would suck if Crown Mesa was turned into a place like my dome was.” Ellegaard added.

The gates opened again.

“Guys, I think that’s Ivor!” Soren exclaimed, pointing toward the end of the street.

“Dad? You okay?” Jess asked as she approached him.

“It’s alright, Jesse. Turns out that Oxidai had already sown corrupt seeds within Crown Mesa.”

“We found one of those corrupt spawners and destroyed it before any damage was done.” Stark explained.

“So, are one of these spawners in my world too…?” Isa asked, worriedly.

“Maybe some of us should look for it.” Suggested Lukas

“Well, Things have gotten rough in THIS world, so it may be best to look for a spawner around here.” Aiden reasoned.

“True. Don’t you think there’d be a spawner in Ellegaard’s dome?” Asked Ivor

“Possibly…” Muttered Petra

“What about Keyen and Magnus? You think they had any luck with the Darkest Dungeon?” Asked Gill.

“Hope Maya and Alexsi are alright…” Aiden said, eyeing the ground while nervously tapping his right foot.

“Well, If the tasks we have to take on get progressively harder, We might need to be better equipped. Any chance you got some spare armor?” Kye asked Soren

“I could use some too.” Said Aiden

“Same here.” Gill added

“You boys can get some from the spare sets, if you’d like.” Ivor told them.

While everyone else carried on with their discussions of events that have been taking place so rapidly, Ivor led Harper, Isa, Kye, Gill, and Aiden to where the order kept their spare sets of armor.

“Alright,  had some more sets in the back pocket, and I have six left. Plus, I can just wear the old armor I had when we fought the Enderdragon.”

There were Six sets available to the five of them.

Gill approached a purple set of Armor.

“Ahhh, Dragonsbane. I remember making it.” Ivor Told him. Gill decided on that one and began to put it on.

“I’ll use this one, If that’s alright with you, Ivor.” Isa said, putting her hand on a set of Yellow armor.

“Golden Goliath. Go ahead and put it on.”

Isa left the room to switch out her golden dress for her golden armor.

“How about this Blue one?” Aiden asked

“That’s Star Shield. And don’t worry, I’ve got a few spares.” Ivor informed Aiden as he nodded and then began to put it on.

“The other blue one? Think I’ll wear it.” Harper said.

“I named it the Shield of Infinity.” Ivor added.

“I’ll have this one here.” Kye said, taking the armor off the stand and putting it on.

“Ahhh…. I remember the day I forged the Adamantite Impervium. Makes me feel so young.” Ivor said, looking at Kye. “I have my own set I used back when I was with the Old Order, so I can save The Ender Defender for another time.”

Ivor walked into another room containing more armor.

“Wow, That looks really good on you, Aiden. Bet Maya will t-” Gill tried to say

“Oh, Shut up…” Muttered Aiden, his tan face turning a very faint shade of pink.

“This looks positively lovely on me.” Isa said, looking at her new armor.

“These do look really good. Points for Ivor, Huh?” Asked Kye

Ivor walked back inside wearing blue and golden armor, along with a helmet to match the set.

“This is incredible work, Ivor.” Harper complimented him

“Why, Thank you, Harper.” Ivor said. He was very flattered by what she said, but she didn’t blush. He was able to control his emotion to an extent.

They all headed back outside, and to their relief, all 8 of their friends were alive.

To their dismay, on the other hand, they all had some form of visible injury.

“Maya…?” Aiden asked worriedly, eyeing the burns all over her armor. Maya lifted the Iron helmet off her head

“Took a few burns, Aiden, but We’ll be alright. We all took a bit of beating.” Maya explained.

“Yeah, Guys, That place was… Really hard. I think trying to storm the place is a really tall order for anyone.” Vulcan said.

“We all took a pretty hefty beating… And If we were to go back, I doubt I could keep up with everyone’s injuries.” Kate told them.

“On the bright side, we did manage to snag a little treasure from the place.” Magnus reminded them.

“Well, Yeah. There’s That. Things didn’t go completely wrong.” Emerald added.

“Well, We found what we think Oxidai has been using to spread that horrible corruption everywhere. Some kind of heart-like structure that spawns them.” Aiden told them.

“So, We know how the Corruption is spreading. We just need to bash up these spawner, then?” Asked Petra

“Sounds correct.” Alexsi added.

“So, Where do we look for the spawners then?” Asked Maya

“Wait! Petra! That Tree you got burned by! Maybe there’s a spawner inside it or something?” Axel asked.

“You may be onto something there, Axel.” Petra said, pacing while she thought.

“That tree that burned Petra… It was all corrupt and evil looking, right?” Jess asked

“Oxidai must’ve hidden a spawner. I say some of us go out and look for it.” Sanya added.

“Hmmm… What about my world? Is there one there?” Isa asked

“You said a small army of skeletons, right?” Nicolai asked her.

“Yes. that’s what we saw. Purple eyed, and armed with swords.” Isa explained.

“I rebuilt the Order’s amulet into a Corruption Tracker. Miss Isa, perhaps I can look for trouble in your world. And some of you guys can organize a party to destroy that tree Axel and Petra speak of.” Alexsi suggested.

“That’s actually a good idea, Alex.” Magnus said.

“Isa, Can you guide me to your world? Once we’re there, I can seek out any corruption in the area.” Alexsi asked.

“Yes. Let’s get moving now. We don’t Oxidai’s forces to overrun my kingdom…” Isa told him.

“You two be careful. We’ll have a plan in action for that Corrupt Tree when you’re back.” Ivor said.

“If said plan wasn’t already carried out.” Gill added.

Isa led Alexsi to the portal network, where after passing through the ill-lit, narrow hallway of seemingly endless portals, The Sky Queen led the Plague Doctor into a light blue portal, with a frame built from Gold and Quartz.

“Well, Here we are Alex. When I came back here for the first time, the city we were building was just down the hill, if memory serves correctly.” Isa told the Doctor.

“Alright, Miss Isa. Once we’re back with your city guard, I’ll need details.” Alexsi told her.

Scaling a small hill, they saw a large town in the distance, with a stone brick wall built around it.

As they approached the city, The Gates were opened by it’s citizens to grant access to their queen.

Isa stepped inside, and was approached by two familiar figures: Reginald and Milo.

“Miss Isa, You’re back!” Milo called out to her.

“Wow… Neat armor, Isa.” Reginald said, eyeing her down.

“Thank you. Jesse and her friends gave it to me.” Isa explained.

Milo turned his attention to Alexsi. “Oh? A new friend of yours?”

“Yes. My name is Alexsi Sorenson, but you can call me Alex if you so wish.” Alexsi greeted, shaking Milo’s hand, and then Reginald’s.

“Pleasure’s all mine, Alex.” Reginald Said. “I’m Reginald, head of the city guard, and this is Milo.”

“Hello you two. Listen, I am here on serious regards to the demon presence in this world. There was a skeleton army attacking, right?” Alexsi asked.

“Yeah… but, what do you mean, ‘Demons’? Some kind of new monster?” Reginald asked, raising an eyebrow.

“From what I take on the situation, Jesse’s world is being attacked by some kind of monstrosities from another world. And Alexsi’s world is fighting them, too.” Isa explained.

“So, Those Skeletons that attacked…” Milo began.

Alexsi nodded at him and spoke up. “Where’d they come from?” He asked.

“Huh?” Isa asked, looking at him

“I mean, which direction were they trying to break in the city?” Alexsi asked again.

Milo, Isa, And Reginald led them into town, passing by a large sum of buildings, where they eventually came up to a wall that about 7 people were working on.

“They broke in here.” Milo told them.

Alexsi pulled out the amulet. There was no glow of any kind of color.

“Well, no trace in this general area. Maybe us four should head out into the wild and see if the amulet gets a reading.” He suggested.

“Alright.” Milo Agreed. “Let’s get some weapons.”

“Should we bring some of the city guard, ma’am?” Reginald asked Isa.

“We can bring a few guards along, we may need their help if we find another skeleton army.” Isa told him.

After Reginald gathered two uniformed men to take along, Alexsi led them into the wild towards the south, from the direction where the skeleton army came. He slowly waved the Amulet in all directions, hoping to get a trace of the foul blight.

“Got anything there, Alex?” Reginald asked.

“Not yet. May be a ways away.” The Doctor Replied.

“Alright, Mister. Just help us find it, We need to protect the citizens.” one of the guards said to Alexsi.

“Oh, I don’t believe we’ve met.” Alexsi said, turning to face the two guards, who are in the same uniform.

“Oh, I know these two guys. Knox and Noel. They’ve been employed as guards after Sky City went down.” Reginald told him.

“Honor to meet, you, Alex.” Knox said.

“So, You can help us with these purple monsters and the town?” Noel Asked.

“Can do. My Older Brother is a master swordsman who’s killed hundreds, if not thousands of them. He’s far better at it than I am, And besides, I’m more of the brains behind the operation.” Alexsi explained.

“Your Brother Does seem like quite the fighter.” Isa added.

“Thank you, Miss Isa.” Alexsi thanked her.

They kept walking for another 3 minutes before Alexsi stopped.

“Got something?” Knox asked.

The amulet emitted a faint purple glow. Moving his hand to the left, it faded. When he moved it to the right, it began to glow again.

They took a right turn, and the Purple Light began to shine brighter.

“Maybe towards that hill?” Noel Asked, pointing upward.

Isa, Knox, Noel, Reginald, Milo and Alexsi all climbed the hill.

Right on the other side, they found some sort of mechanical capsule emitting a bright purple glow. Standing around it were 3 Cultist Brawlers.

“That must be the device that summoned the skeleton army!” Knox Exclaimed.

“Who are those guys? Those must be the most morbid soldiers I’ve ever seen.” Milo said, his tone of voice implying he was spooked.

“Must be an Artificial Corrupt Spawner that our demonic enemies manufactured.” Alexsi said

“Well, unless we want another attack, let’s smash the damn thing to bits!” Noel Exclaimed.

Isa jumped out and dashed towards the Spawner, followed by her friends and her guards.

The Cultist Brawler swung as hard as it could at Isa, but she was far too fast for the Cultist. She jumped backwards out of the way, and then jumped back forwards, slicing it’s chest in two with her Iron Sword.

Knox and Reginald sliced at the second Cultist Brawler, making it growl in pain, before it took a stab at Reginald’s shoulder, making him bleed.

The Captain of the Guard stumbled backwards and almost fell over before Noel caught him.

Alexsi pulled out a large, sharp, jagged knife and made a deep cut in the Cultist’s back.

The Infernal Machine lit up, summoning a Swine with a sharp Iron Sword and a Wooden Shield, along with a large, purple eyed Spider.

Noel was bitten in the leg by the Spider, but having a size advantage, he thrusted his Iron Blade downward, killing the Spider with a well-placed blow.

Isa cut the Wooden Shield in Half with a single swipe, and used a downward thrust to make the swine gorer squeal in pain, fall to the ground, and die.

Knox was focused on the Spawner, using slice after slice to chip away at it.

The Second Cultist Bled out from it’s wound inflicted by Alexsi, while Isa turned her attention to the third Cultist, who picked a fight with Milo.

Milo managed to dodge each swing that came his way, and thrusted his blade into The cultist’s leg, making it stumble on one knee.

Isa raised her Left arm skyward and buried the Iron blade in the Cultist’s chest, only to notice that her Iron sword in that hand snapped in half upon doing so.

Alexsi threw a Blighted Stachel inside the Corrupt Mechanism, causing it to sputter.

With all 5 of them bearing an Iron sword, Reginald, Knox, Milo, Isa and Noel tore the Spawner apart bolt by bolt. Pieces of metal and solid corruption flew left and right.

Isa ripped a control box of the wall and smashed it under her foot. Reginald tore a massive hole in the center, while Knox and Milo completely mutilated the Spawner’s interior device. Noel and Alexsi climbed on top, grabbed the upper metal layer, and ripped it right off.

It took them another 30 seconds, but the spawner was reduced to scrap metal.

“Well, that’s one less threat to worry about.” Isa said.

“The Town is Safe, Ma’am.” Knox said, giving Isa a salute.

Alexsi held the amulet. The purple glow was completely gone.

“All clear, I believe. Let’s regroup with Jesse.” Alexsi said.

“Thank you for your help.” Noel said.

“Yes, thank you, Alex.” Milo said.

“My Honor.” Alexsi said, as he nodded and turned to face Isa. “Let’s get back to The Order. I have a feeling there’s a spawner we have yet to find.”

Isa and Alexsi, after being led back to town, returned into the portal network.
