The scorpion on the left, unhindered, managed to land an attack on the overwhelmed Ryia. She caught a claw to the side and was lifted off of the ground a full foot. After this it started to squeeze, trying to cut through the girl's armor. On her right the other scorpion pulled its stinger back again and thrust forward, the tip aiming for Ryia's face.

 

Keres noticed this and cursed. She turned with the crossbow aimed and realized that she wouldn't be able to hit. It'd be hard enough if she were a good aim but as she was she'd likely just hit the girl instead.

Then she saw something rush past her as the stranger leapt up and brought his sword in an arc, cutting the stinger off the creature on the right and, much like earlier, landing on its back. This time he didn't have time or space to position himself so he simply brought his blade down across the scorpion's back. It moved backwards as it tried to shake him off and he crouched low to keep balanced.

 

Keres, hoping someone would be able to help Ryia better than her, reluctantly turned. The southern scorpion was headed straight for Anis and, though Gilly, claiming a desire to show off her "Hero power" got between them, Keres didn't want to leave it at that. She fired another bolt at the scorpion, injuring it and, with the arrow in it already, slowing its advance considerably.

 

The water mage groaned, her shoulder becoming sore from the recoil on the crossbow. It was slight but, for the untrained, it was starting to wear on her.

 

The monster before Reinaan took some time to get over the sudden flames but it still seemed intent on killing the group. Food was hard to come by and it was getting harder every day. The scorpions couldn't resist a potential meal.

 

The scorpion swung both its claws at Reinaan in an attempt to grab him but it failed. The small Draken managed to get up close and personal to the scorpion. And, as he made his attack, the scorpion lashed out with its tail...

 

With one claw lost and both its tail and legs injured, the scorpion was a bit wobbly as it turned around to face Lindow. It seemed a bit lopsided, favoring its right side, as its claw came across at Lindow, snapping towards the human.

As the Draken moved in to attack the scorpion attempted to intercept him with both its claws. However the boy was fast and small enough to slip through the attempt without injury. However it wasn't out of the fight yet and it moved its tail to stab the Fire Chosen with its stinger. While he saw it begin to move, Reinaan's sprint was still going strong and his claws and spear were both positioned to attack. He wouldn't have the time to attempt to deflect the blow and so he stayed committed to the original plan of attack. He leaned into the run and both weapons found their mark as they ran through the scorpion's face. However he hadn't been fast enough to avoid the incoming tail and so was stung squarely in the back. His muscles contracted painfully as the stinger entered. The sensation was similar to when his neck had been stabbed though thankfully this wasn't affecting his breathing.The scorpion fell lifeless and the boy's flame claws quickly retreated as streams of fire gathered back to his core. With a small roar the boy quickly turned about and ripped the stinger out of his back.

 

"Dammit..." he swore as he felt about the wound. More than anything he was initially upset at the hole in his prized jacket. As he brought his hand back it was a deep red as the blood reflected dimly off the liquid over his black scales. But there was hardly time to stop and consider the effects of the sting. As he looked around he saw more scorpions approaching and most importantly Ryia floating in the air. She was being held in in one of the scorpion's claws as it attempted to crush her. Her armor had delayed the effort but it wouldn't hold forever.

 

The boy steadied himself as he held his spear now with both hands. Another charge ensued as he moved to the Earth Chosen's aid, his spear tip leading the way. He passed by the stranger fighting another scorpion toward his actual target. Using his momentum initially, then his weight and strength after, the spear connected with the side of the beast and pierced through it's external armor.

With his foe still seeming determined to make a meal out of him, Lindow could do nothing to but oblige the scorpion as it came for him with it's single remaining claw. Dodging the strike with a quick pivot and forward step, he hastily removed the claw used to attack with a downwards stroke with the cleaver. 

 

His intention was to end the battle there. Though before he could draw his dagger and bring it down on the creature's face, it's tail lashed out at just before he could complete the strike...

 

The blazing heat from the sun and the strain from wielding the Bandit's Cleaver were beginning to take their toll on the man now. His breathing growing rugged, the witch hunter hastily dodge to the side, before swinging the Bandit's upwards into the monster's face, watching as it's life with an insectile screech. 

 

Panting Lindow rolled his shoulder and attempted to regain his composure. His mind drifted to Bandit Chief and marveled at how easily he had been wielding the Bandit's Cleaver against the chosen. The man's stamina most have been even more monstrous than they thought...

"Tch!"

 

Anis' arrow missed the advancing scorpion (10), and she became closer and closer to reach Gilly. Thankfully, a crossbow bolt from Keres managed to hit it. While it was not fatal, it considerably slowed down its advance. Anis wasted no time, and fired another arrow towards it as Gilly seemed to be winding up, seemingly finally getting into the battle situation, although Anis was unsure yet. In the meantime, Shirin continuously gave Anis update regarding the stranger, who didn't notice Anis calling out to him earlier, and said that he was now helping Ryia who was being grabbed by one of the scorpions. It seemed that it was imperative that she also needed to take note of the situation on the other sides.

 

"Gilly! Can you hear me? Please, now's your chance to attack that thing with your ice spears!"

While the scorpion's claw had loosened up, she was still suspended in mid-air. Trying to take advantage of this opportunity the girl struck at the claw with her mace, only to find it too difficult to break apart. Trying to figure the way out of this grip, there was only one other thing that the girl could be able to do, and that was pry herself out. Moving her arms back, with great strength, she started to push the claws apart, freeing herself from its grasp. Pushing away, the girl rolled across the sand, getting some in her armor, before standing back up and going to strike back at the creature.  

 

Not wanting to get grappled again, the girl had decided to go and strike it at the side opposite the one Reinaan was occupying. Striking at the creature's far leg, after many swings, the girl had managed to break the leg off, causing the creature to become a bit more lopsided. While the girl was about to strike another leg,the creature's stinger came down to try and skewer her. Managing to block it, Ryia then decided to strike and take care of the stinger itself, striking at it with her mace and causing the carapace around it to become battered.

The scorpion between Reinaan and Ryia seemed to be struggling. Its life was fading away and it was damaged in several areas. However it couldn't escape so it tried to flail around in a last ditch effort for survival.

It turned its body around, trying to bowl over Ryia with its tail while trying to hit Reinaan with a claw. However if the Draken kept his grip on the spear he would simple be dragged to the side.

 

However it was then that the effects of the scorpion's sting appeared. It started with a painful sensation at the point where he was stung. However soon after a numbness began to spread across his upper back, into his shoulders, causing it to be harder to lift his arms. As it turned out the poison in the Scorpion's stingers was some sort of paralysis that was now spreading in the area of injection.

 

Anis once more shot an arrow at the approaching scorpion. It struck the creature as it pressed forward. Its body now a pincushion of bolts and arrows, the beast seemed to not be entirely stable as it reached Gilly, lunging at the small girl atop of Hob.

 

Standing on top of the scorpion to the north, the stranger was having difficulty staying up as the scorpion rocked back and forth. Noticing another approaching from the north, he decided to leap off of the beast. As he did he brought his sword in an arc, severing two of the creature's legs.

It tilted to the side, and he hurried towards its right claw, cleaving through it as well on his path to the head. He was about to slash across its head when the scorpion's tail came down and he barely moved to the right to avoid it.

 

The other scorpion was approaching from his right now, as well as several others.

 

Keres fired off a hasty bolt at the nearest of those to the east, missing the creature entirely. She dropped the weapon, knowing she wouldn't be able to load it again before the scorpions reached her. However before she began to cast her magic she noticed something...the wind was picking up. "The sandstorm." Keres called out. It would be here soon, they didn't have much time left to finish this before it was upon them...

Though the scorpion was taking a continued beating, Ryia wasn't able to finish it off before it attempted to go into one last hurrah. Bringing its tail down and towards her, sweeping and trying to strike her with it, the girl stepped back a bit, holding up her shield to absorb the blow. Though she was able to defend against it, the creature kept moving, trying to continue to push her off her feet. Knowing that she couldn't just stand still and hope to stop the full weight of the attack, the girl began to back pedal, following the momentum of tail rather than pushing against it. When all was said and done, the girl had managed to have gone a complete one hundred eighty degrees from her original position. While she could've struck at the scorpion, she was confident that her draken ally would be able to finish it off. 

 

Her attention was more shifted towards her right, where the newcomer seemed to be. Though he seemed to have one of the scorpions under control, she wasn't sure if he could continue to manage that while being flanked. So, with Ackrin splitting off from her, using his ability to make the ground more even terrain, the girl charged at the newest of the scorpions. Rushing at it, the creature swung his claw at her. Seeing this coming, Ryia stopped and backstepped, causing the the attack to swing against nothing but air. Resuming her charge, as she got closer to the scorpion's head, the stinger came down towards her. Without stopping her forward movement, the girl parried the stinger with her shield, deflecting the attack away and giving her a clear shot towards the scorpion. Though her arms were arms were starting to feel on fire and her breath was running ragged, the girl wasn't about to stop. Bringing up her mace, she swung it down onto the scorpion's face.

The scorpion continued to struggle despite the spear lodged in its side. Reinaan continued exerting himself to drive it in deeper if possible but the creature's movement's made that difficult. It started turning about to attack Ryia with it's tail and the boy with a claw. However the Draken held onto his weapon and was dragged across the sand with the turning of the beast. The Earth Chosen began attacking again and the Fire Chosen thought he was ready to join her until a fresh surge of pain shot out of the boy's wound from the stinger. But then it quickly subsided into nothing. Simply nothing. There was no feeling there. It felt like it was spreading as different parts of his back twinged in pain then just nothing after. It had reached his shoulders and with it his ability to use his arms faltered. He released his grip on the spear, the weapon still lodged in the scorpion's flesh, as he began to stagger backwards.

 

"What is this..." he muttered to himself as he tried to raise his arms and found it much harder to do so than it should have been. Kloqah had come to his side as if feeling something was wrong and defensively positioned herself between her little lizard and the remaining scorpions as best she could. Flames began escaping from the boy's core as Ziiyol materialized in the air nearby. The spirit seemed to be in a giggling fit as sensation of self returned to her. But it was quickly interrupted at the sight of her wounded partner who seemed to be lifting invisible weights.

 

"Reiny!" she cried out, concerned for her partner who seemed slightly fatigued from the separation with the spirit. "The battle's not over? What happened!?" she began questioning as she caught sight of scorpions still fighting with the other Chosen. "Sting... poison... I think..." the Draken responded through heavy breaths. He felt like he could just take a moment and get a hang of himself before getting back into the fight but he knew this was only going to get worse.

 

"Ziiyol, you have to help them... burn the scorpions..." he said still not entirely sure of how much the spirit could do on her own. The spirit nodded, a serious expression on her face for once as she drifted toward the newcomer and the scorpions he was fighting. She readied her fans and began to dance about, conjuring red flames at the ends of the accessories. Bits of flame would fly off in a circle about her position. They would sit on whatever they landed on for a moment before either fizzling out on things like the sand or attempt to continue burning should it be something flammable. The hope was to hit the scorpions but there was no real accuracy with this ability. The best she could do was dance her hardest and continue trying to create flames.

 

Kloqah meanwhile began slowly moving herself and her little lizard back a bit towards Keres and the others. There were less scorpions that direction so best to be over there. Reinaan could do little but curse and try to make his arms move as he wished to no avail.

Lindow's eyed narrowed at the water mage's words. Moving over to the fallen enemy that his scimitar had be resting in, he quickly yanked his blade free from the oversized vermin before moving over to his fallen crossbow and scooping it off the ground. 

 

"We wont be able to defeat them all in time..." Lindow called over the sounds battle whilst watching the incoming enemies. His voice was fighting through the rapidly intensifying gusts of wind that had now begun to sweep across the desert, making the imminent danger of the storm even more apparent.

 

Dying in glorious battle was always quite acceptable, but the man would be damned before he let himself be a causality of the environment...

 

"Break off, and begin to fall back towards the building! I'm going to open the entrance up..." As Lindow spoke, his feet began to sink down into his shadow. His glowing gaze shifted to the entrance of the ruins as he plucked one of the bolts from the quiver on his back and began loading it into the crossbow.

 

He managed to just complete the process before his arms and chest sunk into the darkness. Paranoid whispers began to crawl their way up his spine, sinking into the back of his neck and bouncing off the edge of hearing.

 

Visibly agitated for a moment, Lindow grit his teeth whilst the last of his form slipped into the shadows.

 

"We'll just have to drive them back from within until the storm hits..." The Thunder Chosen's voice floated through the air upon his departure.

 

Unhindered by the sand whilst traveling from the dimension of darkness, Lindow quickly reappeared again moments later. Having sudden stepped out from the shadows inside the ruins like a ghost, Lindow knelt down and began channeled Lily's power.

 

The crackling azure aura of Thunder magic appeared almost instantly, filing the ruins with it's mystic light. Though Lindow didn't bother to study the inside...

 

Folding his hand into a chopping motion, the witch hunter focused on channeling the third blade into a denser form using his newly acquired Bandit Cleaver as inspiration. The blade of magic lighting that sparked into existence was one that was better suited for cutting and carving rather than shooting forth and impaling his foes, and it would quickly prove it's effectiveness as Lindow swung his hand into the stone entrance of the building to begin widening enough for the mounts to enter.

The scorpion who had intended to attack the mysterious swordsman was interrupted in the most abrupt of ways. A mace smashing against its face. The beast wasn't used to resistance like that so, for a few precious moments, it wasn't sure what to do. The creature carefully backed away from Ryia. But only far enough to get out of reach and right after it tried to lash out with its claw.

 

Before the claw reached her, it was severed by the stranger's sword. "You know." He said. "I'm getting really tired of maiming these things, how about we find a nice spot to kick back?" He nodded over at Lindow. "Looks like your dark friend there is good at breaking things, why don't we take advantage of that?"

 

He then began to run towards the opening, past the scorpion he had finished off before helping Ryia, while sheathing his blade. His eye went to the right, where two more healthy scorpions were approaching, and headed towards the north-east. Still on the way towards the building but heading out to get the scorpions to divert their course. "You better get moving, you kinda broken my shelter for this you know."

 

The other scorpion, with Reinaan's spear in its side, slowly tried to make its way towards Reinaan. It wanted to finish off its prey but there was a problem. Flames were sprouting from thin air and dancing around. The scorpion instinctively knew to stay away but its hunger was growing. The beast remained where it was, too frightened of the flames to advance.

 

Keres knew it was time to go. The sandstorm would be here soon and it would take too long for them to kill the remaining scorpions before it reached them. And if even one remained while the sandstorm hit...it was likely some of them would die.

 

The problem, however, was Gilly. Who looked to be gearing up to fight the farthest scorpion. Keres turned towards her, crossbow still on the ground. She gathered up her magic and concentrated. Directing it from the container at her side she launched out a torrent of water at the scorpion trying to attack Gilly. It struck it head on and pushed the creature back. "Gilly...Hob, it's time to get inside now." Keres said, speaking as loudly as she was able.

 

She wasn't sure Gilly would listen. But maybe...Hob would.

As the girl had struck the scorpion dead on, it seemed to begin its retaliation, only for the new person to dash in and sever its claw. The girl was a bit in awe in both the speed and power the mysterious man had, though, she knew that time was still of the essence and continued her own onslaught. With one final bash to the scorpion's face with her mace, she managed to fell the creature. Looking towards where Lindow was, with the prompting that they all needed to make a break for it, the girl knew that staying still any longer would only result in herself and everyone else likely being in more danger than necessary. As she began to run, with Ackrin's assist on the sandy terrain, the scorpion that had been nearest to her before had begun chase. Running in a left curve to the entrance, the girl had attempted to lead the scorpion away from everyone else, while also not trying to make it a roadblock for everyone else. Though she had to put great effort into her run, she had eventually made it over to where Lindow was, though the scorpion was still in hot pursuit.
