    CSI: Coconut Bee Island

    Val doesn't care about the robot arm, instead dealing with snapping off a tree branch to improvise as a walking stick.
    Since twisted ankles are no fun at all.
    Testing her weight, she winces, then heads in the direction of the rock outcropping!

    As the group moves along, they'll find that the tundra doesn't actually have any but slimes and a few snow creatures on it, which should be dispatched easily enough. That is, besides the woolly beasts.

    Eventually, they'll come to a cave. It's very dark inside, and it appears to be carved out of an outcropping of ground. it seems like a completely natural cave, and obviously, this has to be where the boss fight is going to take place

    Allen thinks about this for a moment, and nods. "Alright, how fast can we get this place packed up? We're moving camp to the light house. We'll get more visibility there, and it'll be easier to defend. Where are your provisions?" He asks Ivan, proceeding to poke around in various boxes to see what was essential and what wasn't.

    Claude rolls his iris-and-pupil-less eyes at Allen's ignorance. It sorta hard to see, given that they're nothing but big ol' balls of black. Even so, he's still totally surprised that anyone could possibly not know what a lighthouse is, given its self-explanatory name and whatnot.

    [Icy Plateau - Crystal Cave]

    Inside the cave is numerous amounts of strikingly blue crystals. They don't even appear to be ice!

    The monsters inside are more powerful than before, but as long as one avoids letting themselves get hit too hard, it should still be as much of a cakewalk as it was outside.

    Eventually, they'll come to... an opening? At the furthest point of the cave, there's an opening you can see daylight from, rather than the light shining from just the crystals; this is because it's canyon walls leading down into a roughly circular area. Off in one corner is what appears to be... a nest?

    Just before the entrance is what appears to be a floating crystal, spinning in place. It heals both health and mana if you get close enough, so they should be going in with full power

    "WRONG. Our friend wasn't turned into a demon. So start telling the truth or else."

    To emphasize her point, she dunks the gnoll again, before a reply can even be given.

    "Please! Then I don't know who did it! Don't kill me! I have a pup!" The gnoll howls as she submerges what could be her watery grave. "I can tell you other things, just let me go!"

    Lighthouse is a pretty self evident name, isn't it?

    And Allen is very bossy.

    Murry rolls his eyes. "We've already got people in the lighthouse. It's one of the safest places in town since that Fog won't go near it. If you lot want to try checking out that beached ship... well..."

    He glances back at the wall of fog only twenty feet away.

    "If you go at night you'll have to walk through the fog. But there won't be any zombies. If you go during the day there won't be any Fog, but there will be undead everywhere. If you ask me I would go with the zombies. You can at least shoot those."

    Filthy zombies!

    "Ai, I'd suggest the same," Ivan adds. "If ya want head toward the lighthouse. Talk to a few a' the other folks. Few of 'em have seen some of the other things that have been lurkin' 'round."

    "What things?"

    Better make it good gnoll woman! Ilpholin doesn't seem to like the idea of letting you live!

    That's quite enough, Ilpholin. Wenomir is not fond of torturing information out of people. What she says might be true. Darcy might have been recaptured by the slavers before she could be made into a demon.

    And weird? Vincent doesn't know the half of it!
    She's half-half-werefox, after all.

    Her battle tactics include daggering, vibration-causing and, on larger critters, kudzu-entangling! And when they arrive at the crystal cave, she appreciates the effect of the healing crystal. Nodding to Vincent (even when looking at him oddly).

    [That One Forest Mentioned a While Back]

    It's the dead of night, and the sky is overcast. The sounds of the sleeping forest echo throughout the trees. A lone figure stands in a wide clearing, inky black robes concealing his form. He stands alone, a summoning circle made of a solid, unmarred stone encircles his feet. Similarly, a circle encases the entire clearing.

    Behind the clouds, the moon reaches the highest point in the sky. Steadily, a red light washes through the clouds, staining the forest with it's light. Suddenly the clouds part, revealing the moon. It is not the moon as the Nexus knows it, however. It's a blood red orb, three times the normal size.

    The Blood Moon has risen.

    The figure pulls back the hood on his robe, revealing a head of long white hair, dark yet pallid skin, and blood red eyes. Gulaghar stretches his arms out wide and looks up into the Blood Moon. This is it. What he's been working for for so long. Soon, oh so soon, it will be done. All he has to do is speak one word, and it begins.

    "Luralima."

    The summoning circles flare a deep purple, as so do a myriad of trees throughout the forest. If viewed from above they would form another, much larger and much more complex circle, containing the entire forest. Each previously marked tree serves as part of a massive network of interconnecting lines.

    A huge pillar of that same purple light throws itself into the air from the clearing. A swirling vortex of magical energy pierces the moon. The torrent of power tears at the ancient vampire's robes and hair, wildly whipping them about his body. The trees of the forest start to look sickly, and begin to wither.

    And then... Slowly, slowly a woman of pure, pristine beauty descends through the pillar of magic. The red light stains her porcelain skin red. She looks shocked. The Nexus hasn't seen her face for an age, yet it feels her influence daily. Confusion is clear on her face as the goddess of the moon looks down at the vampire who summoned her.

    "Why have you called me here, child of the night?" Luralima feels strange, as if something is sapping her strength.

    "I am sorry." Gulaghar mutters before beginning a chant. The language is foreign, but it seems to drip with an untold power. The trees' death accelerates, as does all other signs of life in the forest. As the forest dies around him, Ghar seems to only strengthen.

    "What are you doing? Please stop." The goddess begs. Something is pulling the very life from her body. She's dying. There is no stopping it though, and there's nothing she can do while the circle binds her. Powerful magic indeed to trap the divine.

    At length all life has been extinguished from the forest. Not a tree, animal, plant, or even the smallest life form remains alive. Not even Luralima. Only the dead thrive in this place.

    Ghar stands as still and silent as the dead forest around him. No light remains, save for the light of the bloody moon. A small smile turns up the corners of the vampire's lips. "It is done." And without further ceremony, Gulaghar vanishes into the red light.

    "Ai, I'd suggest the same," Ivan adds. "If ya want head toward the lighthouse. Talk to a few a' the other folks. Few of 'em have seen some of the other things that have been lurkin' 'round."
    Allen knows of other self evident names, though! One of them rhymes with "art sasses" and starts with an 's' and an 'm'.

    The cowboy, for his part, is noticing that his new companions aren't exactly jumping to follow his orders. He grunts and swallows a twinge of annoyance. If these country bumpkins want to ignore the advice of a seasoned professional and get eaten by zombies, that's fine by him.

    He breaks off a piece of wood from a box (or lacking that, a nearby door works just as well), and leans over to light it in the fire. "I'm dunno about y'all, but I ain't gonna waste any ammo if I don't haffta. I'm goin' to the light house. The rest'o ya can come with me or y' can stay here and sit on your asses."

    Bellan finally speaks his piece, raising one of his intact fingers and giving Allen another look. "As much as I hate to agree with the mercenary, charging blindly into the source of the fog could prove disastrous. During the day, we'll have the opportunity to remove some of the undead on our way to this beached ship." The giant looks at Murry and Ivan, eyes wide per usual. "Take us to the lighthouse, if you would be so kind."

    And weird? Vincent doesn't know the half of it!
    She's half-half-werefox, after all.

    Her battle tactics include daggering, vibration-causing and, on larger critters, kudzu-entangling! And when they arrive at the crystal cave, she appreciates the effect of the healing crystal. Nodding to Vincent (even when looking at him oddly).
    Caroline gives Jamie a confused look. What's the difference?

    Once at the Crystal Heal Point Caroline pulls out her Flaming Dart Gun. Is there a save point? If there is, we should save first, right?

    ((Jamie's got nothing on Caroline. She's quarter each: Ghost, Human, Nymph, and Were-Catgirl. ))

    Yay for save points! Life needs more of them.

    "There isn't any. Jamie's just being silly." Vincent shakes his head. And equips his gear before he walks up to the nest and presses A.

    As it turns out, Vincent won't even make it to the nest. Half-way across the snow field, he activates the cutscene just by entering the right area. A giant white creature looks down from above, and with a blinding moment of speed, it drops in front of our hero and roars hard enough to shake the ground under your feet. It should dawn on those present that the Carset isn't just some lizard; it's a cat-like snow wyvern.

    ... This may be tougher than expected.

    Jamie jumps in surprise as the Carset arrives!

    Then pulls her wand from her belt, and goes to assume her Alternate Form!

    [That One Forest Mentioned a While Back]

    It's the dead of night, and the sky is overcast. The sounds of the sleeping forest echo throughout the trees. A lone figure stands in a wide clearing, inky black robes concealing his form. He stands alone, a summoning circle made of a solid, unmarred stone encircles his feet. Similarly, a circle encases the entire clearing.

    Behind the clouds, the moon reaches the highest point in the sky. Steadily, a red light washes through the clouds, staining the forest with it's light. Suddenly the clouds part, revealing the moon. It is not the moon as the Nexus knows it, however. It's a blood red orb, three times the normal size.

    The Blood Moon has risen.

    The figure pulls back the hood on his robe, revealing a head of long white hair, dark yet pallid skin, and blood red eyes. Gulaghar stretches his arms out wide and looks up into the Blood Moon. This is it. What he's been working for for so long. Soon, oh so soon, it will be done. All he has to do is speak one word, and it begins.

    "Luralima."

    The summoning circles flare a deep purple, as so do a myriad of trees throughout the forest. If viewed from above they would form another, much larger and much more complex circle, containing the entire forest. Each previously marked tree serves as part of a massive network of interconnecting lines.

    A huge pillar of that same purple light throws itself into the air from the clearing. A swirling vortex of magical energy pierces the moon. The torrent of power tears at the ancient vampire's robes and hair, wildly whipping them about his body. The trees of the forest start to look sickly, and begin to wither.

    And then... Slowly, slowly a woman of pure, pristine beauty descends through the pillar of magic. The red light stains her porcelain skin red. She looks shocked. The Nexus hasn't seen her face for an age, yet it feels her influence daily. Confusion is clear on her face as the goddess of the moon looks down at the vampire who summoned her.

    "Why have you called me here, child of the night?" Luralima feels strange, as if something is sapping her strength.

    "I am sorry." Gulaghar mutters before beginning a chant. The language is foreign, but it seems to drip with an untold power. The trees' death accelerates, as does all other signs of life in the forest. As the forest dies around him, Ghar seems to only strengthen.

    "What are you doing? Please stop." The goddess begs. Something is pulling the very life from her body. She's dying. There is no stopping it though, and there's nothing she can do while the circle binds her. Powerful magic indeed to trap the divine.

    At length all life has been extinguished from the forest. Not a tree, animal, plant, or even the smallest life form remains alive. Not even Luralima. Only the dead thrive in this place.

    Ghar stands as still and silent as the dead forest around him. No light remains, save for the light of the bloody moon. A small smile turns up the corners of the vampire's lips. "It is done." And without further ceremony, Gulaghar vanishes into the red light.


    [Dead Forest - Some Time Later]

    So sad, to see what was once teeming with life to be reduced to ashes. Nothing left but the empty husks of what was once hale and healthy, and their ghosts, white-robed figures with no drive left but indignance and fury at what seems a cruel and heartless world.
    Well, there were certainly some form of white-robed figures inhabiting these desolate woods. Not ghosts, however. These quadruplet beings were not formed of base spiritstuff, nor of flesh or blood, or earth, or air, or any other such crude mortal matters. No, they were beings of Divine Resonance, beyond light and sound and energy and matter, beyond all forms of mortal, magical or even mathematical comprehension. They merely were.
    They glided effortlessly across the uneven ground, hovering inches above the ground, so that their tall, cowled frames gleamed untarnished by dirt and debris. One stopped, bent over. Celestial Bronze grasped at loamy soil, soil in which even the measliest of invertebrates and bacteria no longer survived. The gauntleted hand dropped dead earth, and carried on.
    Eventually, the four sovereign figures came together, facing each other at corners of a square visible only to them, examining each other with cool regard under that alien, blood red moon. All evidence had been gathered. Not a stone unturned, not a tree unchecked in their search. They knew what must be done. They had known what must be done since before they had even set their metaphorical foot upon this world. Decisions, after all, were not part of their job description. That had been done, by beings far more powerful than they. All that remained was the execution of the deed, and the deed to be done was execution. Without compassion, without mercy, without reason.

    It was inevitable.
    They were Inevitable.
    And they were coming.

    As one, four figures raised flaming swords that clashed without sound under that alien, blood red moon. A flash. Vanished.
