    Terrenus Fan Event "Legion of Doom"

    As much as I love the idea of villain on villain combat. I'd love to get more folks involved in the LoD arc. We've got a new thread coming up soon. While we have a decent member amount, currently in the story we will have a small army that's for raids to help us build up our supplies to recruit more into our organization. All are welcome to join our discord and kick it or just hang here on the page.

    @Grubbistch @BiggieSmalls @Zashiii @PurplePanda @bfc While Dredge loved the theatrics and flair of music accompanying the slaying of goblins, Dredge also knew when fun had to end and one had to get serious. He had to start supporting his teammates in battle, or this wouldn't be a goal that could be accomplished. While many of his teammates had their own personal agendas and more than likely they wanted to see the other fall. Dredge didn't share in those ideals. He knew he had served along side cultures and ideologies that valued one's own ambitions and pride, but also knew the value of teamwork and using combined might to achieve conquest beyond one's own limits. So it was for that reason that Dredge shifted from leading in as a tank doing damage, to doing damage control and support. Cutting off his music, Dredge noticed that he was surrounded by all these negative emotions and blackened haze of smoke and ash. The perfect combination to steal power from. While he had yet to be able to muster up power from thin air like his comrades could, but in places where hatred, desperation, anger, and pain were weighing heavy and in concentrate. He could grab that power and take it to fuel his own attacks. It wasn't an ideal system, but it was all he could do. So pushing his way back towards the Fire King, Dredge began to bat goblins away from him that attempted to strike at him. The Fire Giant was up to something while he wasn't sure what it was, he knew it had to do with getting these little bastards on their side. He needed to make this quick and as efficient as possible, and in the ensuing chaos, he hoped no one would see this as he was covered in the cloud of smoke and ash. Levitating his own body a few inches off the ground, a massive almost Kaiju sized claw made of pure Stygian abyss black energy pushed its way out of Dredge's armor and form. It's massive size dwarfed all around it, it's body reached up and touched the very roof of the cave and as if it were a specter, it's massive size was hopefully concealed by the smoke. All the negative energy produced by his teammates, the goblins, the souls of the dead and their final moments of agony and pain, even the smoke and ash funneled into it. It circled down into a vortex and the hand used that to conceal itself from others. Though the silent one, the elf from atop the rafters would have a more than good look at what lurked behind Dredge's armor. Sucking it all in, Dredge quickly brought the hand back in cleared the path for Fuerer. Then it came down like mana from heaven. The Fire King's spell had begun to nourish and feed the goblins, even calming a fair amount of them. They might be able to even listen. Though Dredge doubted that this would last long. For in the rear of the horde he saw massive figures as tall as him began to push their way back up to them. He could not allow this to happen. Hopefully the elf had positioned herself in a manner that could get a drop on them and kill one or even two. That way Dredge and Shug could move into strike while Fuerer could bewitch the goblins with his magic and words. Using some of his new magical power seized from the air around him. Dredge tapped into it and would send a mental message to all around him with his mind. Hopefully it would get through, he had only ever communicated mentally with one person in this world and that was with his hand touching directly against her forehead. "I know we all might hate one another, but we need to band together. The Fire King has the main horde distracted. But pushing up from the rear appear to be their leaders. We can't allow them to rally them. Move quickly and strike now." With any luck, the message would go through. Dredge himself would let the Fire King work and he would begin to push towards the incoming figures with haste. They needed to end this quickly.

    If there was one thing Dredge cared little about. It was the plots and schemes of those around him. From what he remembered, he had been grown up and was trained in a culture where lies, treachery, and murder were the core elements of life. There must only be two. So the way he saw his comrades or hidden agendas was what made Dredge truly dangerous. If he failed at stopping them and he was killed, then he deserved it. He was not strong enough and therefore the rightful ones to rule took their claim to it, and he respected that. Yet he hoped that they only saw Dredge as a big man with a sword, a fool and freak. It was best to have your potential future enemies think little of you. But all of that took an even further backseat when the goblins arrived in a horde. Hundreds and perhaps thousands were claiming for the burning meat of his former employees. A deep smile formed on Dredge's lips, genuine joy of what he saw. What set Dredge further apart from his allies was one crucial thing, his imagination and creativity. For them, these goblins were simply a means to an end. Cheap, easy to kill, canon fodder that would serve as a stepping stone. But that's not what Dredge saw at all, for him he saw a people who were suffering. A people with low intellect that could easily be manipulated and then raised to help drive home a message to the rest of the world. The demi-humans can be saved, we will be hunted no more. Though that was enough of the plans. It was time to fight. The group of men had never seen him fight, and boy were they in for a show. Dredge's armor had various devices and equipment integrated into it. Devices that needed to be charged with some of the more energy reliant devices beginning to fail. Though there was one that still worked extremely well, and very loud. So before Dredge even drew his sword to face the oncoming horde, he doodled on a device where his armor flipped open like a hatch to reveal. After a few moment, a faint sound could be heard coming from it. It would then grow and grow until it was finally revealed at a loud and clear volume even in the midst of the cries of goblins being slain or letting out war cries. https://youtu.be/SX75KJfg2lo It was music. Music from a completely different world and it could met your damn face off. And with that music, Dredge let out a torrent of gleeful laughter as his sword magically flew to his hands and he charged forward. To gaze upon Dredge in battle was to see a man who cared only about one thing. Claiming the head of his enemy. It was like watching someone do something as natural as breathing. The sword he gripped clashed into the horde sending scores of goblins flying in the air. Waves of the little green bastards slammed against cave walls and were stomped beneath his massive boots. Hell, he even picked up a few and crushed them with his own hands. But as the horde surrounded Dredge they began to tackle him with the full weight of their bodies. Slamming into and grabbing on like tics trying to sink their bone blades in his armor and find its weak spots. They did this to the point where Dredge had vanished out of sight. A few moments passed and the Fire King would get a wonderful surprise. Goblins began to scream as smoke rose from the pile. And in a massive upwards blast of scorching white hot flames, the goblins that surrounded Dredge were turned to ash. Dredge commanded fire like it belonged to him, and once the flames around his body began to settle he looked across the battlefield to see the Flame Giant and give him a mocking head tilt as if to say "Sup with it." The gauntlet had been thrown down. There was no reason they couldn't have a little fun before getting the job done. @Grubbistch @bfc @BiggieSmalls @Zashiii@PurplePanda

    @Zashiii @Grubbistch @PurplePanda @bfc @BiggieSmalls While the fight was beautiful and very entertaining to watch, it's entertainment soon wore off very very fast. Between the entrance of another to their group who would undoubtedly talk way too much, and Shug just continuing his talking, it was all almost too much. Looking towards the ground, Dredge saw a small sword that he could easily use to find the gaps in his armor and stab himself in the neck. For a few moments Dredge had entertained the thought to escape from the priests constant and unending wave of words. It was if being trapped by a poisonous cloud that killed you slowly. So with one last look at the sword, Dredge spoke softly to himself. "Not today." And with that, Dredge turned to his comrades and while he wanted to tell them to shut up more than anything. It was more important to be diplomatic about all of this. So with a bit grace, Dredge looked at the newcomer aka female Mister T, and gave a gracious bow with his hand giving a little flourish on the way down. If Dredge was anything, he was polite to his fellow entities of evil. He needed to make sure that this was a strong alliance that presented a unified front, otherwise other people might perceive any infighting as weakness and strike to become the leader or even try to destroy them. Even a beast like that realized this was the best course of action, unlike the priest who prided himself on his sermons and vocabulary. Dredge didn't need to talk crap, his actions were more than enough for others to know his disposition. "I welcome you to our little group, my lady. While I would love to get to know you a bit more, the more how should I say this... warrior based members of us have a task ahead. Shug if you would be so kind as to accommodate and protect our guest, I would appreciate it. Now please excuse me." Dredge said in a very polite and sincere voice. But before Dredge was to start his methodical schemes and plots, he needed to acknowledge strength and power. He needed to commend the Energy Vampire.... suddenly Dredge's mind halted. Images of a young woman in a throne consumed his mind. Her grace and beauty sat there in a throne made of ivory and gold, and in her grip the crescent moon bladed weapon was in her possession. A monster who fed on those weaker than her. It all came flooding to Dredge, her face and her words, but yet he could not name her. He could not find the words or fractured memories to know who she truly was. After a moment of spacing out, the overlord shook his head and turned his gaze to the Vampire. "You did well, child. You have earned your reward. Stay with us and you will know true power and destruction. Stand against and I will do what I must." Dredge was fairly clear as to what might happen if the woman were to step out of bounds. Turning around to the Fire King to render help for the task at hand. Grabbing four corpses at a time, Dredge dragged their limp carcasses over to the entrance where the different tunnels opened up which lead to their new recruits. Dredge would strategically place each corpse and then return to grab a few more. After a few moments, Dredge stood back and looked towards his ally the Fire King. They needed to get the scent of cooking meat in the air and traveling down the tunnels. "Light em up my friend. Ready yourself assassin. Battle will be among us soon. If they bring out any leadership, take their heads and be sure the underlings see it." Dredge only saw words for having really two uses. For communicating with your comrades, and to inspire fear, and Dredge wasn't in the mood to make these people fear him. He had a job to do and when that happened the overlord was a man of action. All they could do now was wait for the Fire King to light the corpse up so they could start up the plan.

    @Grubbistch @BiggieSmalls @PurplePanda @bfc While Dredge would of loved to have responded to the Undead's questions, the priest's problem kicked in once more. He just kept talking and talking, it was like drowning in a sea of his words. He'd go from something about the gods, then something about some other crap, and then stop and give a very long report as to what was expected and could possibly happen. While the last bit of information was indeed helpful, Dredge decided to just ignore the earlier pieces of conversation in favor of all the Intel they had just been given. Three paths, three enemies, and limited resources. Dredge's mind then began to go to work. They could divide their forces and then try and fight them one at a time, but that would be too time consuming, not to mention resource and power draining. Sure they had the Fire King and the Undead Priest, but even they would have limits against battles with potentially hundreds if not thousands back to back to back. So then what was the second option? They could try and stealth down, find their leaders and gut them in their sleep. While it was a viable option if they wanted someone dead, it wasn't one of they wanted to convert anyone to their side. No, this had to be done quickly and with as much precision as possible. They had to start and end this battle with one decisive blow to the head. But how could they do that? How could they lure all their forces to where they now currently stood or where they planned to set up? Dredge's eyes scanned everything around them until his gaze fell upon the mercenary Vanguard. There was no moment of hesitation, no second thought. Dredge took charge and reached towards his belt. A heavy sack of gold was tossed and hit the deck of the cave with an echoing thump. The bandits would be able to see its contents sprawled among the ground. Shining pieces of gold mixed with a few precious gems. "The strongest among you gets all of the pay and a seat at the big boys table. I want you to kill each other for it." Dredge then looked back at his two comrades. "This is to the death. Oh, and if any of you think about taking it and running, or ganging up on us." Dredge then raised his hand up, and with a twitch of his finger something terrifying happened. One of the mercenaries began to grasp at their throat. As if an invisible hand had been strangling them, the man pawed at it in a vain attempt to free himself from its grasp. It was not long before the man dropped to his knees and soon after to the floor dead. "Well get started then." Dredge then turned to his comrades. "We move the bodies to an open location. The scent of blood should attract their curiosity. Once were in a good spot. Fire King you light them up, a nice medium rare should suffice. The smell of cooking meat should drive them into a frenzy. We need to fight them head on and quickly end this." There was no time for them to bicker about a plan. While Dredge was concerned about Mayumi, he knew she was the scariest thing in these caverns. They needed to act and act fast to make sure they didn't die in these caverns.

    @PurplePanda "Well that's terrifying." Dredge said in response to her homeland's fairly creepy trees. Which in all honesty was not a place Dredge would like to visit. But when the comment of the attic beginning to smell came from the girl's mouth, Dredge stopped in his tracks and sniffed the air. It was the dank and moist smell of a spider nest, they had pushed through the labyrinth of useless crap and now found themselves here among the spiders. "We're here." Dredge said and then took a few steps forward. Now having cleared the maze, they entered an open room where space opened up only to be enveloped with the thick webbing of these spiders. They were in the belly of the beast now, and Dredge could see unworldly and ominous shadows moving against the webs. The massive spiders had no doubt spotted themselves and were preparing to strike. Their goal was to take the queen alive along with any egg sacks she might of laid. Dredge made sure to convey that to the child. "Now Mayumi. You might see a really really big spider. About the size of a pony. We are to take it with us alive. So you can kill any other spider, just not the really big one." the man said plainly hoping Mayumi would understand. While he did that, slowly and with stealth. Two of the cat sized spiders began to weave their way behind Dredge without noticing. Dredge was too focused on informing Mayumi and keeping an eye ahead for any who would rush them that he had failed to spot them. Their venom was certain lethal with enough bites, and even Dredge's armor had opening that could be exploited. "Okay, Mayumi?" Dredge asked to confirm.

    @PurplePanda Mayumi was a good kid, at least as far as flesh eating monsters went. In truth, Dredge had no idea what age she was. While Dredge was slowly gaining his memories back, he remembered that where he hailed from there were many species that may of looked young, but were much older than they appeared. Dredge of course was no exception to that rule. Though whatever this child's true age might be, she had the mind of a child. Something that was mailable and could be shaped. While she was still most likely grasped tight by the claws of insanity, Dredge had a soft spot in his heart for her. She reminded her of a young girl that was still very fuzzy in his mind, but still felt love for. So rather than say something cold or dismissive of the child's thoughts, Dredge didn't say anything at all. He showed a moment of vulnerability and weakness with the child, he reached down and with his hand rubbed the top of the girl's head lovingly. The overlord smiled beneath his blackened helm and gave a soft chuckle. He didn't want the girl to be lost in the prison of her own mind, so he figured the soft touch and gently jostling of hair might help snap her out of it. There was silence for a few moments afterwards. Dredge had continued to walk with the small child through the labyrinth of relics and crap. Eventually he began to spot cobwebs and he knew spiders would soon be on them. But before any of that, Dredge wanted to make sure the child had something to focus their mind on. Something positive and pretty. It wasn't that Dredge was this complete being of evil, in truth he did have these moments where he could show very humanizing elements behind closed doors. "Tell me about these big trees, Mayumi. Were they pretty? How big did they get?" The overlord said in a friendly voice. He didn't want her to focus on the wolves or the tragedy that was so clearly obvious.
