(What in the heck? Everyone pulling out their magic mojo manipulations... oh wait... ah the limit bar IS maxed out).

Ethan floated face down in the water and would be dead if he actually breathed through his lungs, his tendrils were stunned for a few seconds at another teleport, rearing up it's color flared to a deep burgundy. When Ray cast his spell or whatever it reared back at the strange occurrence, it's senses confused and objected.

As soon as it ended it looked... conflicted, the color turning to a mute green. Parts of it stretched towards Ray, then at the beach, and for a moment it writhed in a seething black mass. Then it all seemed to pause, and slowly receded back in to Ed's back.

*GASP* Ethan's head shot up like a rocket as he began to wade in the water, looking around he looked a pale shade of sick.

Finally noticing Ray, "Uh what did I miss?" Looking at himself and running his hands to check he was still whole and "normal". A few of his tendrils stretched out, some went to go see what they could consume in the water, another went on stretching downwards and coming back up with the soggy bag of his.

With the odd interlude in the group's fight for survival over, Mistet took no time to rest. Grabbing Teka and shoving the injured girl behind her, placing herself between the majority of the crystal monsters and the demon mage. "She will not allow you to harm her. If you step forward she will cut you down." Mistet intoned in a threatening voice. She ignored the small cuts that marred her mostly naked frame from her earlier encounters with these fiends. It wasn't important. All that mattered was protecting Teka.

Her words seemed to dissuade the creatures at first. They made circles around the pair, like lions waiting to strike at wounded prey, fanning out to surround them. And as they did so, the pack's leader grew bold. In a sickening laugh, it spoke to it's comrades in a harsh language, unfamiliar to Mistet's ears. The rest of them nodded, and then charged. Mistet, the instant before they did so, whispered to her companion. "Get down."

Two things happened so fast in succession that only a master would catch them. The first was that the small swordswoman once again shoved her injured partner, this time down to the ground. The second was that when the creatures were about to strike, the amnesiac warrior swung her oversized long sword in a 360 degree arc. Several impacts that sounded more akin to a ballista shot penetrating a castle wall then sword on crystal sounded.

Perhaps the only one who didn't seem terribly effected by the all too brief encounter with whatever sort of creature Spiriah was had been Bismarck. In fact he didn't even seem too shaken up to find himself back again on the same beach he had been before he had been whisked away in the first place. The fact that they were now mostly surrounded by jeweled guardians however did worry him, and almost as soon as he regained his footing he sought cover behind the same rocky outcropping from before. He really didn't worry about Amra too much, he knew the man could handle himself and he had faith in the man that he wouldn't try to plant his blade in his armored back. So that left Bismarck to deal with his current problem concerning the overwhelming numbers of floor guardians that were more than likely going to spring to life at any minute.

"This is no good." he spoke to himself as he withdrew a fresh bolt from his pouch and clenched the projectile between his teeth. Placing his boot inside the metal ring at the very end of the weapon's frontal prow he ensured that the weapon would remain still while he wound the action back with the windlass. Placing his right hand upon the crank of the winch he began to wind the mechanical pulley at a steady pace, the crossbow slowly pulling the steel cable like wire back up into a ready to fire position. It would take some time, perhaps 20 to 30 seconds before he would be ready to fire again, but it was well worth the effort in his mind. If not than he had both the rocks and his shield as a barrier between himself and the enemy, as well as his melee weapons should the need arise to defend himself in close quarters. Overall things were still pretty bad, but he wasn't about to start bellyaching about it.

With only the brief respite, it seemed Ed finally got his bearings, looking back at the beach he saw Bismark and Amra were up against, while he noticed that Teka and Mistet were MIA from the water or beach, by looks of things the monsters.

"Ray, help Bismark and Amra!" Ed shouted out as he dived underwater, tendrils coiling and sprouting from his back. His back began to bubble and flesh out, like a grotesque mutation of horrid proportions. The tendrils began to join together, rapidly changing to 5 larger ones. All looking to wrap around and crush, toss, and kill the remaining creatures like a Kraken. He made to be sure to give Ray space to get to the beach, as Ed's body got lost in the mass of his limbs.

"AMRA!"

Ray grabbed his bow and arrows and started picking off the shard warriors (still no time for armor, clothing, or underwear).

He would have summoned spears but he was out of manna and his focus was with his armor. no time to search it out. no desire to either. these crystalline bastards shot Amra. All of them die.

(I don't think Wobble would appreciate getting shot up, and doesn't he have a shield!? Look at his bio, clearly says he does... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-wuWOAJJuE and play this as you read.)

Ethan could "see" everything, his tendrils and it's own biomass was covering his body, and the only sensations he could really feel were his own limbs, he kept his eyes shut and tried to get lost in his tentacles... he knew he was getting nervous and desperate when he started to refer to them as tentacles. Anytime he did this kind of thing, there was always a seeded fear of losing himself to it.

It was an odd connection to "it" and he could hear it's intent, the voice like a hiss of hungers edge.
Many, death, ours, foo... friends, dead, dead, escape
No! Save, help, escape to tunnel!
Can't, food, more, need, rock, too long, weak
The last word punctuated his mind like a taunt oddly enough, not the normal hiss. he wondered what he could do, so he decided to ask it, something he hadn't really done sense he was young.
Save, how, need, what?
The conversation seemed to take a century in his mind, while mere seconds passed in the world. The tendrils pondered, and he could almost sense hesitation in it. The tendrils seemed to stick to deflecting, blocking any of the creatures assaults.
Then fresh blood was spilled, and the tendrils coiled in the sense of it. "Amra, damn! Help them, no matter the cost!" he yelled in his mind at "it".
"Consume..."
Convulsions racked around him, and with near blinding pain, he could feel his very own "body" begin to eat away at his flesh.

(Desperado Break Activated! Didn't expect to do this any time soon...)


His mind felt shattered, and his very own being was racked with pain. He retreated out of his head, and in to the only other mind around. With that, Ed ceased to be Ed for the time being as it seemed.

Any onlooker would see a hellish abomination had formed, the tendrils split in to a writhing mass, each tendril sprouting smaller tendrils to push it through the water at astounding speeds. It rushed towards the beach, its action to follow to grab It's comrades, and rush in to the exit. Lashing out and knocking aside any obstacles or consuming anything organic (It's comrades are an exception).

The last of the guardians dispatched, Mistet gave a quick glance around at their surroundings. The entire place was self destructing. The walls were straining under the pressure of the ocean, whatever magic had been maintaining them suddenly failing, and the glass ceiling was cracking, water pouring into their refuge. If they did not move quickly, then the whole place would be their graves.

Mistet had not come this far to die that way.

"Come on. We must move!" Mistet said, grabbing Teka's hand and pulling her toward the exit. The only way they could make it would be to be the wind, moving fast before the entire place collapsed onto them. Water splashed as they moved. This would be close.

(misclick posted too early)

Consume, devour, destroy PAIN, KILL, help, save , too many, take, lea- Never!No!

To describe where Ethan was, a void of dark space, strings of colorful light pushing past him like the wind. Mixtures of different shades streamed past him, primarily dark and red, "Help, save, too many, take, lea- never! Yes!" With his last shout it echoed around him like he was in a cave. A reply didn't come as he shouted, he sat down in a huff, looking back down at his hands.

Where he was was anyone's guess, his was that he was in the tendrils mind, and for some reason he was a little kid again, dressed in brown rough clothes that would blend in a farm. He gingerly touched his face again and reached across his back, feeling the sensation of smooth HUMAN skin. Sighing deeply out of sadness and pleasure of feeling whole despite his surroundings.

The lights constantly streamed past entering from the void, and going vaguely off to a single direction, seeing nothing better to do he walked in the same direction. Occasionally he would gingerly brush his "hand" against one of the lights, the darker shades caused him pain, hunger, wrath, and all sorts of emotions that he felt were a darker part of life, while the brighter shades were pleasant, if not happy feelings.

The one color he hadn't felt in years after the lost of his... was a deep rosy pink. It was a lust of sorts, but he considered it more of hunger mixed with love, it felt oddly sickening compared to his memories. Walking on in to the abyss, he saw the stream of lights streaming in to something.

Finally approaching the very apex of the lights, it was an opal, the size of a mango, lying flat in the void, it looked like a mood ring, shifting colors and in between shades of all kinds.

Ethan knew it well, it what was the very cause of his pain, his gain, his loss, and his life as it was. Picking it up, the lights began to focus and stream in to him, pushing and plunging past and through him to small stone. Emotions flooded in to him, a bizarre mixture but leading him to just feel pain. Dropping it and gasping, he breathed hard as the flow of light resumed going past him.

Steeling himself against what it was and what it would do, he picked it up again in both hands. Slowly like the grains of sand in an hour glass, he began to inch it towards his mouth, his path to having what was once his clear. Fighting against every emotion he felt and trying to remain clear who he was.

It felt like pushing against the tide upon a cliff, every moment was pain, and if he faltered he would be dashed against the rocks. Dropping the stone again, he fell in to a fetal position, gripping his stomach, oh so real tears dripping down his face.

Sitting down again he wondered what he could do at all? Staring upward in to the darkness, he watched as the lights streamed past again, creating an aurora of a rainbow. Relaxing a bit at the sight, he realized what he had to do, grabbing the stone again, he held it, letting the emotions overflow, and hit him head on. Not trying to resist and simply letting himself be filled with it all rushing in to him.

Breathing slowly he brought it to his mouth and swallowed it. It slid down and rested in his center, the lights again flowing in to him but at a steady pace, and his vision with the tendrils began to clear, he was back in action.

Ethan's "body" pulsed for a moment and seemed partially confused and in control at the same time. A few lashed out and picked up Bismark, Ray, and the luggage, carrying them through the water and in to the tunnel with speed. Other parts of his body seemed to fall off and die, others looked to attack and basically do what they had done before hand. A few stuck close by shielding the two. Injuries were numerous and parts looked cancerous as he flooded in to the tunnel dragging the others with him.

(who is dming next? I'm ready and set).

Bismarck was never a man to be on time, it was perhaps his one flaw he could never really seem to correct. That being said he was still lugging with him all of the equipment that he had been so desperately trying to protect since they had managed to arrive at this floor. It seemed like ages ago that he had stepped off of the boat unto what he had hoped to be a peaceful beach that wouldn't really see fit to test his combat prowess. However the now soaking wet crossbowman was doing his best to rejoin his group all while lugging that huge pack of gear. He hadn't even had a chance to finish winding his crossbow after he had fired his last bolt before he took a dive into the water to follow along before the whole damn place fell down around his head. He grunted in disapproval as the scene at hand turned to chaos with three different factions vying for control o the immediate area around the area that lead to the next next floor above them. It was a stroke of luck, it seemed, that many of the floor's guardians were focused on dealing with Spiriah and that meant Bismarck was going to try and slip by to at least make sure everyone and their cargo were safe.

"Get going! this place is coming down around our ears! MOVE FASTER!" his voice seemed to boom and echo within the crystalline halls as Bismarck swung that bag of supplies as his improvised bludgeon, knocking aside a guardian and clearing a brief section to give him just a moment to make sure his aim wouldn't be obstructed. With a loud huff and a grunt Bismarck thrust his crossbow into the straps that held the equipment lashed together, making sure it was secure before he gripped the large set of packs in both of his hands and gave it a mighty swing. Up, up up! Up and over the bags went, landing right at the base of the crystal spire before it too was sucked up behind Teka. that left him to fend for himself while everyone pulled back and hopefully made their way upward. Gripping the head of his axe in his left and the hilt of his blade in his right Bismarck drew both of his weapons from their respective places on his hip, each hand flourishing a deadly weapon that served to work well in tandem in the hands of the aging warrior. He wasted no time in doing his best to carve a path for his fellows to follow, swinging his axe low to hobble one of the guardians with a mighty cleave like blow that would hopefully knocking it up off its feet and down unto his back, where he would then plunge his sword in a downward thrust into its exposed chest. Both weapons were quite heavy and he was confident that the forged steel would be able to cleave through the guardian's armor.

Teka
http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/ ... 30sir5.jpg

Teka was propelled upward in to darkness, then for a brief moment gravity said "Hey! Your falling up?!" A sensation of falling, and then a circle of light. Literally coming out of a hole on the ground like it had just spit Teka up, in front of her was a dusty road about 5 feet wide, with a few wooden buildings ahead in a circle. The Well just behind her had water at the bottom but looked very, very deep.

The clearing Teka landed in was empty, and the sounds of birds could be faintly heard, but no other signs of animals were evident around her. The air held a certain buzz, as if magic was in it.

(Details concerning the world will be given when you reach the town)

Ethan

Ethan was trying to focus, but it felt like his head was split in to his entire body. Seeing Bismark holding the exit, he moved to help Amra, his tendrils moving to lash out and constrict the Ai's movements. A few other tendrils that weren't directly under his control went and began to attack anything that wasn't Bismark, Ray, Mistet, or Amra. His entire body was aching, and parts of him that weren't were beginning to die, but still constantly trying to replicate and attack.

As the situation rapidly spiralled into madness, Mistet briefly looked back toward the exit. Judging from the structural damage, the place would go down any second. However, with all the guardians within the area, not mention that crazed... thing, there was very little chance the group would be able to retreat unmolested.

Mistet's mind was rather lateral in the solution of such problems, using the Gordian Goblin method. She performed a backflip into the wall, then launched herself off the wall horizontally across the room, using her sword to perform a single slice through the masses of guardians, and rolling to her feet. Sword in hand, she looked at the maddened creature before her. She did not hesitate at charging at it, ready to strike. It was large, several times her size, with accompanying reach, and it was utterly focused on harming the man before it.

Mistet was a good woman. It was a simple fact. And it was against her own thoughts to do anything but save Amra. It could almost be called honor before reason, but there was no reason to begin with, only the desire to protect people. Something like that just wasn't reasonable.

"Die monster. You don't belong in this world!" Mistet cried, swinging her sword arm at the limb that was currently on it's turn attacking Amra. The crystal blade tasted foul ichor.

Still no time for clothing, focus, or anything else(despite the shrinkingly cold breeze. Grabbing his bow he ran forward, firing arrow after arrow into Spiriah's legs and hips as he ran. 20 feet out he unsheved his sword and hooked one of the monsters' legs. Every muscle in his body leapt against his inky black skin in effort as the molted, grey-brown leg began to move out from under Spiriah.

Tentacles grabbed Amra and moved him to the exit, they coiled and wrapped around his wound merging slightly with his own body (stem cell powers go!), Ethan didn't know how it was doing it, or even realized that they were. Sealing the gaping wound and restoring what it could.

Ethan was barely paying attention to their actions as his own body began to emerge from rotting chunks of mutated flesh, his body was covered with scabs, scars, and what looked like even chunks of his own body was bitten off from his arms and legs. His body was left mostly unscathed asides from wearing nothing, and having nothing hanging to speak of.

A tendril idly grabbed and ate the monsters severed hand, it didn't like the "taste" but any food would help. Delivering a crushing curb stomp and a smashing punch to any nearby creature, Ethan could still deliver a mighty attack bare handed even in his state.

"We need to leave!" He shouted out to everyone, as he noticed the water coming in.

The battle between Mistet and her foe was short lived. Down an arm, the creature quickly shifted attention from the man it was toying with to the much more immediate threat of the crazy fast swordswoman. Leaning forward, it attempted to take Mistet's head with one bite, a narrowly dodged strike. In retaliation, Mistet swept her crystal blade acrossed the giant's red eyes, before following with a second slash to it's legs. With ichor dripping down it's face, blinded, the now quite mad creature made a desperate swipe, only to discover Mistet was gone.

Mistet had run out of the way of it's blinded strikes, before grabbing Amra, her real reason for attacking Spiriah. The man was in bad shape, half conscious, and losing a lot of blood, but Mistet had not given up hope he could be saved. Pulling along the barely conscious man, she shoulder charged her way through stunned guardians toward the exit.

"She has no time to do this easily" Mistet said, before pushing the man into the tube. Considering she had no idea what was on the other side, this could be good or bad, but in her mind, another minute here would mean dead either way. With that in mind, she quickly followed the person she rescued.
