The mists danced and played around Elquin, toying with his senses. Aurea? Yes, of course it was her! How had he forgotten the woman...! "Aurea... Can it be..." The Ethenorden man paused. The path of mists play tricks on even the sturdiest of minds; and Elquin was well aware of his affliction. Was this real? Or was this his own mind turning against him? Elquin hesitated before reaching out - he peered at the shrouded woman, and also at the mists around and behind him.

With much fury, Aeomi's staff loosened its bolts of telekinetic energy and the force hammered into the breastplate of the black knight, lifting it up and slamming it into the ground. A small rift was punched into the armor and black ooze dribbled through.

Then Rune's spell hit, but it just fizzled and died, neutralized by the Ekauri's aura.

The Ekauri's blinked out of existence, but not before the mutilated Ugeroth barbarian strapped to Rune's back chopped off the left and right black armor boots.

The Black Armor winked into existence just behind Ronal, somehow it managed to stay erect, and it's huge greatsword split the hapless apprentice in twain, sundering him from right shoulder and down to the waist, fully removing his right arm - which slid forcefully and disgustingly down on the muddy ground.

Ronal let out a horrified scream, and an immense fountain of blood gushed from his right side. He was down in an instant, his life blood seeping from him rapidly.

Ronal is dead in 2 rounds, he is bleeding immensely.

Meanwhile the Ekauri attacks again and rolls initiative.

"Aurea!", the words escaped Elquin's lips. He squinted suspiciously at her vague and obscured shape.
Was there trickery at play?
Was the Dreamer sending him a waking vision?

Many thought passed through his wary mind, yet he felt deep down, deep inside, that he knew Aurea. She had been part of his childhood, and early adolescence, yet something had happened.
But those memories were too vague, too distant and lost in the dreamscape for him to remember now.

Looking at her shape, he did not get any sense of dread or malevolence at play. She just seemed eager to bring him along.

"Phaedroso... Please!", Aurea held out her hand, a Sundra wreath in her fingers.

She always used to make me wreaths of the yellow Sundra flowers.

To his left was the light, and he could see the Treskenmauer buildings vaguely on the other side

Surely this must be truth, and not a delusion of his mind. But why here? Why now had she come back to his thoughts? His head hurt.
For the time, his mind lapsed; regressed onto adolescence as childhood memories enraptured him, "Aurea... " Elqiin grinned, "I am starved!"

Elquin took the mist shrouded woman's hand.

Elquin grabbed her hand and Aurea pulled him close, kissed him passionately then put the wreath on his head and ran through the mists.

"I love you Phaedroso!", she cried on top of her lungs.

The mists swirled, and Elquin found himself alone. Aurea was no longer present and he looked around anxiously, wondering where he was; where she was. This was an unknown place in the mist rift, and as a youngster his parents had cautioned him. "Never stray from the paths in the mists, Elquin. There are dangers there, and no Ethenorden has ever strayed into the wild and returned to tell the tale!"

But now he was lost in the Wild. He looked around again, whirled about a couple of times.
His eyes noticed something ahead.
There.
On the ground lay the wreath, now old with age, the Sundra flowers wilted long ago.

Then the mists cleared, and a battle scene presented itself. Elquin recognized Treskenmauer, but the buildings were strangely murky, like he saw them reflected in muddy waters.

"Behold, an Ekauri; an elemental of dark essence, and an Elemental Prince at that", an old man's voice said in his mind.

The Dreamer.

Elquin gazed upon a majestic shadow, humanoid, but consisting of swirling black tendrils of smoke. It had searing white eyes, and the black smoke tendrils seemed to orbit something glowing fiercely red in its chest.

"Behold, Elquin. Even a being as powerful as the Ekauri has a weak point"

Suddenly Elquin was surrounded by children. He recognized one of them as himself - Phaedroso-, another was Aurea. There were others too. Granto, Siclias, Fendaras, Throustou. They were singing a childrens song, and skipping in a circle around the Ekauri, each one holding the shoulds of the child in front as they skipped merrily in ecstatic circles around the fiend.

"Prince of Shadows, Prince of Hate"

They clapped their hands.

"Magic Eater, Judge of Fate"

They squatted down, then sprang back up

"Whatever will your weakness be?"

They started pointing at the Ekauri

"An Amorphae for all to see!"

As the glowing red in the chest of the Ekauri started to glow brighter and brighter, Elquin fainted.
Everything went black

*******

"I love you, Phaedroso. I will always love you!"

Aurea pushed Elquin's sword to the side and embraced him; gave him a loving, deeply passionate kiss.

"I will stay with you... In here!"

Aurea pointed to his heart, then to his short sword.

She was gone

*****

"RONAAAAL! NOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!"

Elquin recognized the wailing voice of Eurydice through his clouded mind. Looking up, he realized he was flat out, prone in the grass, his face squeezed unpleasantly down into the coarse strands of green grass.

OOC: Elquin can participate in the combat this round, but due to his state of waking up in the grass, his initiative roll is modified by +5

Aeomi stomped her staff to the ground and shielded her allies with psionic energy.

The staff description says shield 7 armor points 10 feet radius, it doesn't specify that I need to pick only one target soooo....  :P But IF I must, I suppose I pick Rune and hopefully through extension U'kriel.

Kuth, taking on the massive Rino form, hurled himself at the armoured foe.

The Black knight had already turned to fight Kuth, but he was too slow to bring his blade up in time.

As the knight brought up his blade to cleave the armoured rino, Kuth's horn slammed into his breastplate with thunderous force...

Location, the 14, so assuming near centre mass.  Damage: 10:33:39) Minion: valadaar rolls 7d6 and gets 6,5,2,4,2,4,6 + 2 or 31 in total, minus armor....   WHAM.
Attempt to toss or trample if possible.

The huge rhino slammed into his breastplate with thunderous force! Actually the black knight was hit in the right arm first, but it crashed right through it and into the breastplate, and soon bits of armor flew in every direction, the immense creature just crashing through the ethereal wraithlike being.

Kuth's furious charge came to an end, as the enormous rhino halted, bringing its bulk around for another charge. Kuth shook its head, loosening the right pauldron which had gotten stuck on the horns.

***

Aeomi and her disciples stood watching in awe, as Kuth totally shattered the black knight, dispersing its bits of armor in various directions with furious force.
Her telekinetic shield was put to good use as the bulletlike bits of armor harmlessly bounced off the invisible barrier.

***

Elquin got to his feet, just in time to see the charge. For a minute he thought it over, then the black tendrils of smoke reformed, drawn to the pulsating red amorphae in the Ekauri's chest - Just like in his Dreamer visions in the mist.

***

The Ekauri could sense the latent magics, the power radiating from these adventurers, this buffet of delicate magical morsels. It was so hungry. So hungry! Food should not resist like this. Food could not resist like this. It let go a piercing shriek of frustration.

***

The tendrils of dark smoke began moving faster, and the monks saw what seemed like a face begin to form on top of the vaguely humanoid wraithlike being. And in that head; two glowing slits of cold white, intense light. Pinpointing Kuth with a calculating evil, an unfathomable hunger.

The dark essence elemental pointed its right index finger at Kuth, and from that finger sent a tendril of black, swirling smoke in Kuth's direction.


Kuth can attempt to dodge the tendril. He certainly sees it shooting for him.
Due to his immense size, his chance to dodge is close combat -30 (80 - 30 = 50) 50 or below on 1d100

If he fails his dodge:
The tendrils shoot straight through is rhino form, and he is drained of 10 mana and 1 hit point. He will also be forced back into half-giant form by the magic eating properties of the Ekauri. Additionally, the Ekauri will heal itself with the leeched life force and magic drained from Kuth.


(19:58:08) Minion: Ancient_Gamer rolls 1d100 and gets 46.
(19:58:57) Ancient_Gamer: A hit. Now mana drain.
(19:59:03) Minion: Ancient_Gamer rolls 2d20 and gets 5,5.
(19:59:16) Ancient_Gamer: Now hp leech
(19:59:20) Minion: Ancient_Gamer rolls 1d10 and gets 1.
(19:59:46) Ancient_Gamer: Now magic eat
(19:59:51) Minion: Ancient_Gamer rolls 1d100 and gets 14.

With an agility belying his immense size, Kuth managed to evade the fell energies. 

(15:15:29) Minion: valadaar rolls 1d100 and gets 28.

A bestial snort, and Kuth began his second charge, hoping that the others would make use of the things undivided attention.

Entril and Caldu fire, scoring hits against the thing, though to unknown effect.
