At this point I only care that Vara'nin and maybe Fame escape from Felde alive. And I'm not even sure Fame is in Felde...

ikr? B) they're down to just two, and one of them is pregnant. when that summoning stone smacked into #3, I thought for a second that it was the pregnant one. the fact that the child-bearer still lives must mean there is some significance to that baby she carries, eh?

oh, I know you meant "sympathetic and relatable" tongue-in-cheek :) the emotional roller coaster of everything going to hell can be tiring, but I do want to see how things work out, this close to the end. you might not care much for the characters, but call me a fool, but I'm kinda invested in how things will come to a conclusion: a screaming, roaring, gut-wrenching finale; or a tepid, negotiated settlement to wrap things up for convenience? with this author, my money's on the former ;)

3 years ago at the gathering fiasko, there was a pregnant one too, but nothing on-panel came of that. Maybe they replenish others, maybe they provide supply of replacement parts, maybe they're someone's secret ...steal? babies (not Mel's, at least then; now's a different story)

What's interesting here is that the ethereal forms of demons are supposedly unsuitable for aura/mana manipulation. Yes bodies provide one with replenishible supply, but the demon nurses have not shown particularly high care for themselves. Yet we only see the three, and not the ones left over from the giant one that closed Neh'lenaee's gate (also why the f was she not told they do that? Did Snadhya'rune just expect Nidra'chaal to not open demon gates when told in peaceful setting?)

Wait, no, the giant body was ethereal, and more suitable for mana manipulation. I don't know, then.



Also for the gem to come loose means the ceiling is deformed. That's quite substantial structural damage; I'd say the entire thing might split in two, and do a cascading collapse of the entire tower - if there wasn't so much plot armour on it. Still, the RRRRR sound might mean someone is ....Ah. The Sarghress did (just now) and do use earth foci, don't they.

Though, given how removing the gems closed the demon god gate and how they need active, hand manipulation, I guess this won't be exploding in an avalanche of demons. Just what was in the gem.

The crystal that crushed the nurse sent her nether form falling through the floor.

Would be funnier if it takes over and assumes a pregnant form.
