((Wait, is that null magic zone continuous or does it only remove anything that is magical when it activates?))

((Alright then, I'll first wait for Equiste before giving my reaction.))

And the Battle has Started...

Equiste feels a little strange as he is released from the shadows, taking a little time to get his bearings. He watched for a bit watching Ryu's comination work its powers. Luckily everyone else seemed to go, so the librarians were safe for now. As the null magic effect started to affect the area he could feel his enchantments go dormant for now. Seems this was going to start physical. It was strange as his condition hid itself in his body to escape the lack of magic. It was magic in nature so it did effect him mentally a bit, but he was way too focused on his revenge to let that stop him. Others appeared in the room but that didn't matter. Ryu could deal with them. Elizabeth was sounding desperate. Even without the magic the weapons he had were still weapons, his armor still armor. As Elizabeth struggled to get her and the ionian behind the group he charged towards it, hextech blade drawn. He came at an angle that allowed the group an unobstructed view of Ryu since he would be their main target but right towards them. Providing none of them charged him specifically he calculated what he would need to jump over them. Regardless if they charged or not he would leap up towards the wall and use it to jump over the heads and weapons of the group, using his cape and sword to defend attacks as he jumped over the top of him. He still was quite fit and somewhat acrobatic, just not to the extent of Cassandra. As the Ionian looked up Equiste was comming down on top of him, using the strength of the fall from the jump and his own power and his anger from the violation of Cassandra, aiming for his neck not for a beheading strike but just to cut into it deeply enough to cause massive bleeding if the attack hits. He was going to pay for what happened to Cassandra. He looked like some sort of lightly armored assassin.

Hinderances Residence

Dulcina winced as the anti-magic went off, temporarily shutting down her connection. It was annoying. Perhaps she should intervene. Then again he had no idea what was going to happen to Hinderance, so she decided to... Her thoughts were interupted by Hinderance's scream. Quickly she charged in, looking down at Hinderances changing form. "Hinderance! No!" She yelled, quickly running to him and grabbing onto whatever form of his was there. He could feel that his life energy was being taken. It didn't take her long to figure out which, but she had no time to act on it. Quickly she began to channel her own life energy into him, changing her magic exchange to that of a life one. It also gave her a chance to test whether it was her vitality giving her the ability to give more magic or simply was just her efficiency. Either way she felt she had plenty to spare, with her power and all...

(OOC: Ugh, a 32 minute rotation... Sorry that took so long.)
(OOC Edit: Ugh, this crippled internet is driving me insane... I'm worried if I activate anything else it will shut down this and I don't want to just suddenly disappear... -_-)

Oh, this'll be fun

Ryu jumps up and watches his prey hide behind the men with dragon equipment.

"Dragon hunters? That's seriously the best you could come up with? Seems like I'll have to rectify some matters."

He lowers his scarf so they can see his black fangs and so he can freely bite. He grins and takes a fighting stance, since apparently he'll have to do it without magic.

"You seem to have something backwards. Dragons hunt, humans are hunted. And that's only normal dragons. Don't think whatever hatchlings you took out were enough to make you capable of taking down a real dragon. Equiste, you take the prey, I'll give these guys a short education."

Unfortunately for them, his shapeshifting abilities aren't magical in nature. He disappears and reappears amidst them with a quarterstaff, which he spins around at knee height, knocking them all over. He then disappears and reappears in front of them again, lifting his weapon.

"Come on now, no sleeping in the library!"

The Dragon Hunters all began to laugh, the leader in particular seemed to be in a chatty mood. "HAHA! Yes! Be it death this day or worse, we do not care for we only live for the hunt! Lets show him what we can do boys and lets not disappoint!" As the leader picks himself up the one in the red scales gets back on his feet and charges Ryu with his shield up front. As he did so the ones in husk armor toke out their napalm arrows and bolts and fired it onto the back of their charging comrade. Immediately the fire over toke his armor, but didn't seem to spread otherwise. Pulling his ku kri over the fire he lights it as well while slashing at Ryu's chest in an exotic movement that seemed to have been taught in order to get beneath the scales of a dragon and into their flesh.

The Dragon hunters seemed to be completely uninterested in Equiste and even moved so that he could continue unhindered. As Equiste approached his target the Ionian drew his blade in one fluid and lightning quick movement slashing Equiste's Hextech blade before he could bring it down. Equiste could at that moment see a chip break off of his weapon and as time looked like it would stop the felt his weapon jerk backwards almost making him do a somersault. Elizabeth seeing what was happening seemed to be complaining even in the condition she was in. "OH come ON! You could have lobbed his hands off the hell are you doing Yang?!" Elizabeth's chest plate glowed brightly bathing anyone near her in blue light.

Hinderance's Residence

Hinderance continued to fight the pull. His mind going blank at certain points was brought back as he recovered some of his life energy. However, when he suddenly felt an external source feeding him he looked over to find Dulcina. In his semi-frozen form Hinderance tried to nudge Dulcina away as he feared she was giving up her own life energy to sustain him. Barely being able to form words he tried regardless. "No....You.....Shouldn't.......You.....no.......sa crifice...." His voice was weakening as more and more energy was being consumed, quite soon he would lose his voice entirely.

Good, the hunters didn't care about him. He still did his leap manaovre. Even though he moved quick to get to them it seemed the guy was able to recover faster and move quick enough to stop his attack before he could get proper momentum down. He did frown a little as a chip came off his blade. When he got it made it had been made of a stronger material than normal. Either he had been cheated a bit or that was a lot of force. As he felt the recoil comming he leaned into it, letting himself do a somersault backwards to get a little distance. He also used it to take a quick glance at Elizabeth to see if she was trying to escape. It was unlikely due to the null zone's affect on her limbs and she would probably want to stay near her protector since the further she got away the more danger she could be in. "Yang huh?" He said upon landing, his voice sounding dark. He dashed back in immediatly making a feinting strike to his leg before bounding back towards the wall, preparing to push off it to throw him back towards his foe for a strike. He doubt he could win in a direct fight so high manauverability was going to serve him best here. He couldn't rely on his magic or his condition thanks to the null magic but it seemed to be preventing Elizabeth from moving at this stage. He still kept an eye on her in his peripheral vision. If she did try to escape he was going to drive his tearing blade into her... Well, if she was going to torture Cassandra that way she should get a taste of her own medicine. But he would aim slightly higher since he'd expect Elizabeth to try to dodge, and left or right would likely hit a leg which will still serve its purpose for now. He made his movements as precise as possible, performing a proper slash and using the momentum to move around him, preparing to defend himself. He found the blue light oddly calming. Blue light? The power source could be in there. It made sense since it could only be a magic light. It seemed Elizabeth felt she had the advantage without magic in the place. He made sure to make all his movements directed only at Yang. He still had to think about how he was going to use what he assumed to his advantage.

Hinderance's Residence

Dulcina ignored his nudge, pressing her entire body against him. "I'm a senior summoner Hinderance, I know what I am doing... You are too vital to lose and so am I... So shut up." She said, but surprisingly for her she was willing to sacrifice herself if it came to it. "You are being used as a magical battery for a null magic device in Zaun. I'm not going to let you get sucked away like that." She had tears in her eyes. She was getting really emotional. However she also had a back-up plan. Her guard were still around the place and they would help protect her. She could get them to give her their life energy, though she wasn't going to let themselves push until death, but if she needed to it would help to use them.

Lets go hunting

"Well, that seems reasonable. In return I'll only kill you, and save the torture part for those people behind you."

Ryu jumps up, the blade only slashing through empty air. He spins on his horizontal axis, his spiked tail coming around going for a direct blow to the back of the guy's head, at the same time releasing spikes all over his body, creating an expanding wheel of spikes.

"Nice try, but you need to hit me before you can benefit from having fancy tricks."

The Red hunter smirked as he changed his movement into a mid air corkscrew jump giving him a brief window at Ryu's wheel of spikes from below. Pulling on a cord on his shield the front bulge of the shield exploded sending fragmented dragon bones up in a tight cone into Ryu's wheel of spikes.

During this time the Husk archers toke up a triangle position and fired off a simultaneous trio-cross explosive shot attack trying to make sure Ryu continues to fall into the blast cone. The leader now up on his feet charged at Ryu's wheel as well making sure not to get caught in his subordinates formation. As he made his way to Ryu he shouted, "Then you have our thanks should we fall, but we intend to have you mounted on a wall this day!" All of them seemed truly happy in this scenario, as if this was the only thing they ever wanted.

Yang stood guard over Elizabeth still keeping a close eye on Equiste watching to see his next move. Elizabeth tried to move her limbs and so far all she could do was bob around helplessly. Trying to get a better view of the battle she looked up from her position. Yang continuing to follow Equiste and moved to intercept him mid way of his next attack. Both Yang and Equiste was fast, but Yang seemed to have an advantage here. Even during this frantic fight Equiste could see the similarities to Yang and Cassandra's combat style only he used a katana while Cassandra fought with her fists. The it hit him, Yang was most likely a warrior monk or an Ionian assassin.

Hinderance's Residence

Hinderance's level of energy was somewhat stable, but would continue to dip as the battle drew on. Dulcina knew a Null magic circle of that size would use up a considerable amount of energy. Even if there were a 100 senior summoners at the circle keeping it up through an Equivalent Exchange formula they would only be able to maintain it for 20 seconds maximum. So far the battle has already lasted 3 minutes.

Hinderance tried to nudge Dulcina away once more, but now with even less strength. "Stop...dangerous...you....must.....not....." Hinderance's voice faded out as another dip in his energy reserves disappeared. It looked like he was starting to melt as well, not having enough energy flow to maintain even that. To Dulcina it looked like Hinderance was wasting away, losing what little form he could maintain.

It seems Ryu is cornered, bone fragments from below, an explosive barrage from the three lesser hunters, and the leader heading right for him. However Ryu disappears, leaving the expanding wheel of spikes behind, and reappears inside the triangle the Husk archers have created with his quarterstaff changed into a battle axe, which he brings around in a wide arc aiming to decapitate the three archers in one swipe while grinning. Their battle lust reminds him a bit of FilFire, which sparks his own.

"Don't mention it. As for your corpses, I'm kind of hungry, so don't get offended in the afterlife if you see me devouring what's left of you."

Equiste could see the unfortunate side of his predigament. Yang was currently at an advantage here. However he had seen the style of a warrior monk and has seen battles on the fields of justice as examples of Ionian assasins. Suddenly he hears a sound of splashing above the battle. He strains to listen it as it seemed to be comming down in a pattern. He allowed himself to rest moving back from the battle a little. It was a code from the institute, one that Dulcina liked to use. 'Remove the source now.' He sighed. Guess he was going to have to take a risk. She needed a lot of magic to conjure water from that far away, so it was a serious message. Looks like it was time to get that blue thing de-activated by any means. He reached back into his cloak and pulled out 3 vials of green liquid. He threw them forward, dash slashing them before they got too far out of his range to release the acid that was inside of them. Some of it may eat into his sword damaging the top a bit but it was a risk he had to take. His focus was towards Elizabeth, hoping that either Yang would move Elizabeth leaving himself open, he would move and open a path to Elizabeth, or something similiar. As he rushed forward he also threw a metal ball aiming to hit where the blue was eminating from. If two hits activated it perhaps one hit would de-activate it. Either way he had to get it out of her by any means.

(OOC: WHat effect on Hinderance did shattering his gem do again?)

Hinderances Residence

Tears ran down her face as she came to that realisation. How was Hinderance holding that much power? She had to get it shut down, but she was a senior summoner. Most of her powers were magical, and although at full strength she would have enough power to be able to circumvent it she had spent most of it on Hinderance already. She had to come up with another plan. She came up with two. However the other one she would use as a last resort, since it would be her last. She thinks, 1% chance of survival. So the other plan she put into action. "Aegis, I need you now!" She yelled. A dark haired person appeared and walked up to her. He wondered if it was now she was going to ask for his energy.
"Yes ma'am, I am here to serve." He said. Aegis was his codename, not his real name. He himself was a skilful fighter learning techniques from all around Valoran with his blade. He had a katana he was gifted to by an Ionaian noble for a service he did for him. It was powerfully enchanted but he supressed the enchantment most of the time to be fair on his opponents. He wasn't the most magically gifted but was better than your standard mage.
"I need you to go to these co-ordinates." She said, stating the position just out of the influence of the null zone. "There is a null magic zone being powered by a saphire crystal. You are to find and stop it from being used. The dragon Ryu and summoner Equiste are your allies. The rest enemies. Go. Help them the best you can." She said. Aegis bowed and prepared his teleportation spell. It wasn't going to take long. However Duclina also prepared another spell. Long distance it would kill her magic, so she casted it while she was talking to Aegis, more of her guard comming over to give her magical energy as they could see what she was doing.

The first two husk archers heads were cleanly removed form their necks. As they were separated a spray of blood came off of what remained of their necks. One of them had the remaining stub of his tongue gurgling around for the rest of his head. The last husk archer just managed to dodge the axe cleave, but Ryu still managed to rip off his helmet with that attack. The archer rolled away from the close quarters combat and fired off an explosive arrow at the husk crossbow man's bolt quiver. As it pierced the container all the explosive bolts exploded in a chain reaction causing a semi-large explosion right underneath Ryu.

The red hunter still holding his shield up crouched into a ball trying to cover as much of himself behind his shield as possible. Thankfully the dragon scale armor was helping deflect a lot of the initial spikes, but the sheer weight of the spike wheel would be his undoing. He still had to try, he wanted to fight longer. He didn't fell a mature red dragon to die here to a chaos dragon. A sickening crackling sound could be heard as the wheel fell onto the hunter.

The leader seeing what was happening to his archers charged through the explosion with his halberd. Although magic was disabled he channeled incantations of law and used his innately order aligned white dragon ivory halberd to do as much damage as he could to Ryu while he was being suppressed by the explosion.

Elizabeth made no effort to move away from incoming chemicals instead she turned onto her back so that the acid would hit the back side of her chest plate. Although Equiste could see his trick eat through the back side of her armor it didn't seem to be doing much asides from leaving her back open to attack.

Yang let the acid trick pass through, and instead charges after Equiste. Yang made another extremely fluid and quick slash intercepting the metal ball before it could get any considerable distance from Equiste. Now with the blade drawn again Yang enters a stabbing motion in an attempt to reach Equiste's heart.

Hinderances Residence

Hinderance could truly feel his mind slipping. No longer able to keep any type of physical form he reverts to a puddle of water. There was still some energy in reserve, but that was draining even faster now as if reacting to something. The pain now becoming tantamount, he let out a request in his moment of weakness. "Dulcina......Please......Kill...mee....Pain ......too .....mu....ch....." His voice was extremely faded and even Dulcina could barely hear it.

((Shattering the gem will make him go unconscious for a few days, until he can regenerate the amount of magic required to sustain himself without the aid of the reformation gem. Other than that, so long as his form isn't destroyed after the gem is destroyed he should be fine.))
