((Well, Carnage isn't really near the water though... So hard to make that connection. I thought my referencing the dream scape shortly after you did and mentioning a red and blue figure, only distantly would be a red flag.

I will however work something out. Carnage is going down another way then, it would seem.))

Phantom ducked and waved through the massive arms putting his shadowy evasion to the test. He pulled out Executioner and moved forward towards the front of the head where he saw one of his ships being dragged towards its mouth. A group of guards stayed on the ship loading the few operating cannons while waiting for the beast to bring it closer to the open maw. Then within a few yards distance they fired cannonballs into the draken's teeth and Phantom could see some men waving as they prepare for impending death. Roaring with anger, the dark energy surged through the massive blade as Phantom drove it where he thought the skull was and shot a beam at point blank range.

((Again my characters left the dream scape so they would know nothing of what was happening within.I've been kinda waiting for Necro to post so I will after this one.))


The effect was immediate. Carnage's form flickered and the seething hatred that maintained his fiery visage waned. His body was pitch black formed from dark coals, his eyes still smouldered. Carnage tugged at the dragons neck trying to escape its grip and rekindle its power.


((yes he is solid now))

Seawall

As Claude approached the seawall, unknown to him a shade of Koroza slipped from his shadow and disappeared before reappearing on the ruins of a building. The shade was incorporeal and would appear as a tall humanoid black shrouded figure. It watched Carnage with particular interest, and eventually its gaze drifted to Pandora. It watched two greater thought demons with great interest, and it sent the information it perceived back to Koroza.

Never before did Koroza consider the thought demons useful after all they could not directly terrorize, but that seems to have changed. He rather liked their new of interacting; now all he had to was force their submission. That shouldn't be too much of an issue; he could wield his rank as an Arch Demon easily. However, a new presence much closer to his host distracted Koroza. Another angel, he gritted his teeth. These angels were endless and it is beginning to become a nuisance. He just hoped that they would die quickly. Why were they even here? Koroza would have to ponder the question later for now...he had to plan how to make two greater thought demons submit to his will.

Claude encountered a group of merman fighting near the seawall. He was about to charge when he heard a terrifying roar. He looked up into the sky, but saw nothing. He just hoped whatever the creature was it was here for moral support, and not to actually fight. He would rather not reveal his demonic form if he had to. After seeing the skies were safe and another angel, now he really had to play it safe, he charged the group of merman. He caught one by surprise and his blade busted through the merman's chest. His comrades turned but were caught by a horizontal slash that left a deep gash across their chests. He climbed the stairs and engaged another merman whose trident grazed his side. He grabbed the merman and smashed its head against the wall itself before tossing it off the side of the stairs. He climbed the seawall and saw the creature trying to break it down.

Claude knew that he would have to trigger his demonic form in order to get into melee and deal some damage. However, he would rather not risk Koroza taking control of his body and opted to look for some siege weapons of sort like a catapult or ballistae that he could turn and use to his advantage. Preferably away from the cracking seawall, so if his effort failed he would not get caught in the rubble.

Hilde, heading to the Harbor Ramparts

The battle intensified all around Hilde, as she heard the call of the city’s lords for defenders upon the wall. First it was merefolk, then dragons... then angels, and Hilde couldn’t help but feel the presence of demons nearby. She couldn’t verify that in the chaos. What was this, she had simply come here to heal a stray survivor... and now it seemed Armageddon was imminent. Above, Carnage became material, and was fighting the dragon in the sky. Any other warrior would be confused, cower in fear, wondering who or what to fight.

Hilde focused... the gravest threat would have to be the possibility of flooding. The mention of a sea wall, combined with this out of proportion battle, meant that the city’s biggest threat was the sea itself. Bodies flew past her vision as she sprinted her way to the wall, encountering broken buildings and broken bodies all along the way.

She parried and ducked, vaulted over walls and evaded stray arrows, and even had to fight past a trio of merefolk she came across, having virtually no time to draw her sword and resorting to wrenching their tridents from their hands and gutting them with their own weapons.

She arrived at the ramparts, relieving a watch tower of trapped and wounded guards, wasting no time to ambush yet another ferocious but flat-footed Lobsterman, pushing it over the wall and back to the sea below. She was already soaked and slightly battered, but her inner light- not to mention her aegis field- made her shine like a living saint. They opened the door, seeing that the monster was beaten back.
She nodded to the men briefly, and surveyed the sea battle, and saw that the conflict there fared no better. The sheer scale of it all threatened to spill the ocean itself into the city. She could not do this alone- no one could hold the walls.

Hilde took out her eagle badge from within her belt, to the curiosity of the men. She held it in her palm and closed her eyes, muttering a prayer briefly. She looked at the Krizar soldiers- the ordinary men who have had heaven and hell spill onto their doorsteps. It was clear that they were on the verge of giving up.

She takes one of the fallen Krizar banners, and ties it to a fallen soldier's spear. “Your Ramparts are being overrun. It is time to take them back!” She proclaimed, her voice roused the men. She placed the spear in the hands of a nearby sergeant- a bald man in chainmail, bandage over his eye. Her actions stirred them from their exhaustion.

“Men! No angels, demons, devil fish or dragons are taking what we built with our hands! We still count! For Krizar!” Morale was restored, as the next rampart was taken back- and another, the beacons lit and the colors of the city flying once more. Needless to say, observant individuals would feel the great fervour that had returned to the soldiers thanks to Hilde’s leadership.

She only hoped that the real leaders would come up with a better plan and soon!

With the ramparts being cleared out, the reserve troops begin work to reinforcing the walls against breakage.

Harbor Shoreline moving to Ramparts

With the enemy being pushed towards them, the small force of Forsaken Shadow Guards surged forward. Their halberds ripping through the ranks of confused Mermen while gaining assistance from an angel. The chanting continued, growing louder even though there were only sixty some men. Soon they had made it up to the ramparts where the guards stood awaiting orders, but not from any person. Two Elites followed suit making an appearance near the men. One turned to face the humans, seeing if any were true leaders.

Near the Inn

The dragon seethed with rage, lashing wildly now and eyeing the sky nervously. It's eyes widened with each new roar and coiled its tail and wings when the lightning stuck the earth around it. A hiss escaped its bloody fangs, followed by a low grumble in its throat. It turned to the fumbling demon beneath him, and he pressed down with his claws to shoq its strength.

We are the new order... not--" The dragon looked up again as the sky pulsed with a vibrant white light. Two roars filled the sky; the first from the one ready to tear into Carnage, and the second from the sky beast. As all went blind, the ground shattered as far as the eye could see, shaking Agares and any nearby mermen to their knees. Tearing and ripping noises came, followed by horrific screeches from the dragon.

Agares was leaning back on all fours, his sword several feet from his grasp. He was trying to shake the light from his vision, trying to compose himself but to no avail. It wasn't until something heavy landed beside him, kicking up dust into his face. When his vision was restored, the head of the dragon was beside him staring into his eyes, its tongue dangling onto the ground.

His eyes followed the head to the Inn, where an even larger dragon stood with its wings spread far into the sky like pillars. It was massive, twice the size as the first with luminous scales of brilliant gold. The head was long, narrow, with 6 bright purple eyes and two narrow mouths - one on top the others. The dragon was humanoid in appearance; arms, legs, torso, abdomen - granted it was claws, and about 10 times larger. It looked around until it found Carnage.

Its foot slammed down on the demon, much like the first demon and grabbed with its claws. It picked the Demon of rage up and made for the Seawall.

Seawall

As Delmegar woke from his stupor. He did so to a sea of bodies around him in every direction. Both mer and human aly broken and ravaged and one large purple dragon with a hole through its upper torso. A few soldiers were checking to make sure it was really dead. As the fuzzies fled from his sight, he noticed a dark furred yordle face to face, staring at him.

"What Logan...? Told you to wake me when it was over." Delmegar sat up. Someone had rallied the troops of Krizar and they were pressing th mermen back hard. Mages of the White were weaving magical thunder, slinging bolts of energy into crowds of mermen as Thren fled from the sorcerers. Somewhere far below, the sound of cannonfire could e heard roaring above everything, followed by the terrible shouts from draconic creatures. And during his black out, a storm had started. Rain was beginning to pour heavily, increasing the pressure upon the already failing seawall.

"Clever, Lord Amaron... oh, so clever. Did you rest your weary eyes well enough, sleeping beauty? Cause while you were under we lost close to a hundred men before I brought that dragon down. The bloody thing ate three men alive. In one bite! Ridiculous, I say." Logan pointed an accusing finger at first, and then wagged it like you would a naughty child being told 'no.'

"Glad you thought so." Delmegar stood, but not before grabbing his rune sword. He pointed to the horizon with his sword, then shouted. "This is our city! Send them to the depths that birthed them! Fight for your families, and bring honor to your house! For the Dark Phoenix!"

A cheer rose up from dozens of soldiers who ran passed, stopping in their tracks to respond with great fervor, "All hail Lord Amaron, and the Dark Phoenix! For Krizar City!" A terrified growl came from nearby mermen was they faced an angry wave of soldiers. men with halberds and shields attached to their arms lined up in one massive line and pressed back the mermen. Their weapons were enarly double the length of tridents, and supported by archers, gunners and mages.They could not be halted by mer or Thren alike.

The Seawall, below.

The Shadow guard could not be saved. The might of he dragon was not to be thwarted by one individual and his toy guns, no matter how strong they were. Phantom ws simply too late to stop the dragon from sinking its teeth around the hull of one of the galleons, even as cannon fire rained upon its thick scales. It barely gave them the gratification of an annoyed growl each time it was struck. One by one, its arms pulled free, and threatened once again to knock Phantom from the sky.

With a fourth charge, the seawall cracked more. This charge, was weaker, however. Its strength was waning and the wall was for the msot part holding. It shook its head like a dzed puppy, side to side, showing its frustration and fatigue. Now, from above, the white mages were casting bolts of fire, weaving what barriers they could muster in such a short time of span to protect their city.

But it wasn't until the thunder became most powerful that it truely showed the tell tale signs of fear. Lightning graced its presence, illuminating the darkening sky and greeting the dragon with several bolts. It roared in fury, smacking the wall over and over with its arms, but more out of pain then desire to crush the barrier.

Delmegar saw this, and shouted to Logan and the below ships. "That's the last of em! Clean up that dragon, and get to work on the wall!" It was then that his knees buckled. A roar broke through all other sound, shaking Delmegar to the core. A bright light appeared in the sky not far from them and was headed quickly towards them.

Seawall

Claude found his a group of wounded soliders trying to hold the ballistes located on the walls against a group of merman. He rushed to their aid striking down the rear two merman before the others could turn. All but one met a similair fate unable to properly defend themselves from Claude's suprise attack. The last one got kicked off the seawall and screamed all the way down. Claude turned to the wounded soliders, "Load the balliste and aim for the dragon's softer tissue. The eyes! The face! The throat! Whatever you can hit! Just take it down!" he commanded.

The soliders snapped to their new orders loading the working ballistes as fast as their wounded bodies would allow. The sound of 5 large balliste bolts being cranked back could be heard. Moments later there was the loud noise signaling their release. The bolts crashed against the dragon's neck scales doing minor if any damage. However the men adjusted their aim and would fire again as soon as they were able. The next volley would crash into one of the dragon's eyes. A decent shot, but would a bolt that size do any damage?

As Claude turned to address any other threats he heard a familair roar....so much closer. He looked to see a light approaching the city, and getting closer. It wasn't an angel either...it was something much much worse. Koroza on the other hand began to laugh...and laugh...and laugh.

"YES! YES! YES!" he roared in between his laugh. The shade near Carnage saw everything about the new dragon, and it felt its power. The shade followed the dragon with great interest trying to remain out of sight of the being as it was still transmitting information to Koroza. "I want it! I want that magnificent creature's power! With that power Koroza would become even more powerful, and there was never anything wrong with that. However, his host may not be so keen on the idea of taking on the beast. It was coming to destory the seawall after all, and that threatened the lives of the town. Claude was always a sucker for the greater good, "It's coming to destory the sea wall if the other dragon does not hurry up and do it. Either that or it will kill everyone...unless someone stops." Koroza explained.

"How do I stop...whatever that creature is? Claude replied and when he heard Koroza chuckle he already knew the answer.

"With my power of course." Claude just shook his head before making his way towards the approaching humanoid dragon in hopes of stopping whatever it was.

Seawall

"PUSH!" Delmegar bellowed, his blade cleaving a merman from shoulder to groin. Then a second with a horizontal slash, cutting him in half at the waist. "PUSH THEM BACK! Let the sea take them!" A trident pierced his lower back and his eyes flared with rage. He turned, snamshing the shaft with his elbow and back handing the mer across the face. As it stumbled back, his blade rose to thrust into the beast mans chest over and over again. "No merman, no dragon, no anything will take what we have built! We'll stop the sea itself if we must, isn't that right, Krizarians!?"

"HAAA!" Swords beat against shields, soldiers houted, and nearby siege weapons were firing down massive bolts on the draken. Delmegar heard someone shout, "Trebuchet, center walls! Get em loaded, you fools! Break that lizards skull!" He grinned when he saw Agares fighting with renewed vigor. Up and down, side to side, the blade of the Fallen Paladin, former slave of Noxus, tore through a lobstermans face. It wailed as its eyes were severed from its head, but only until Agares launched it off the wall. "My Lord Amaron! Let's wrap things up!"

The moment the two joined together, ready to push the last of the merfolk a light halted them in their tracks. The seawall ramparts shattered and broke, the plates of its surface ripping apart and flying into the air as white light showered over them. Another terrifying roar, larger than all the others and easily dwarfing out the storm that was washing upon them.

"TIAMAAAATTTT~!" The lords heard from the light before they were swept back from a powerful gust of force. Nearby soldiers were shouting, screaming curses and words of fear. All of them at some point saying the word, "Dragon."

It was a second later that Delmegar had to smack his hands to his ears, screaming to block out the rapid influx of noise. Between the roar, the hurricane rapidly approaching, thunder, and the violent screams of the draken down below as the golden dragon landed on its back like a thunderbolt, sunk its dagger claws into shoulder and then its teeth into its throat. The draken fought and fought, beating the gold figure with its powerful arms to no avail.

A surge of pressure, and a violent crunch later the head of the draken was barely hanging on. The golden dragon lifted its head, screaming into the storm before its claws sliced the head off the draken. Somewhere along the way, Carnage had been dropped by the gold dragon.

Logan, the Great!

"Heyyyy~!" Logan had found a strange woman, one who was evidently not from the forces of either Order. Nonetheless, he'd been watching her fight, and she did well as a leader. He was tugging on the him of her shirts, trying to draw her attention. "Blast! Is it absurd that I am dubbed, "the Great." and yet I go by unnoticed until I tug on your attire?"

Whether she knew he was there yet or not, the little dark haired yordle shielded his face from the rain as he pulled her haplessly to the edge of the ramparts. He pointed below, at one of the beaches where some barely visible dark figures were battling what remained of a merman force trying to get into the city.

"You're a good fighter. You've gathered our warriors attention, now I must ask you to do more. Gather a banner, rouse the soldiers and go aid those mysterious warriors. I will help from here in case that gold lizard decides to make a go at us." A visible chill crawled up the spine of Logan. "Not sure we can take a beasty like that... Anywho! Milady!" Logan shouted, his voice carrying only about a few feet over the wind. His arm clicked several times, his left hand glowing like a lit bonfire, and then aimed at the beach. "Logan the Great, mastermind weapon extraordinaire! Pleasure to make your acquaintance." The hum of the cannon stopped and a bright sphere of energy emerged from the Hex Cannon, obliterating a small portion of the beach below and a single merman.

((The draken...wasn't that the one carrying Carnage? The humanoid looking thing? Or is that the one beating the seawall?))
