Battle at The Temple on The Edge of Forever
The Father of DJinn and The Sapphire Djinn came to bear witness to the final battle, threat to them as well.
The Snake Cultist who labeled himself ‘The Betrayed’ would not stand down, and continued in his terrible quest for vengeance unneeded and unwarranted against the Royal Family, now even trying to destroy the Djinn along with Sanctuary for the dark powers that are taking over his mind with the possession of the Gems of the Scepter. Miriamne went forth to stand against him with the Stave of Defense, her own set of Gems united.
Miriamne squares off against the Cultist. “I am sorry for you. But you must be stopped…” It is like a song from the heavens as she speaks. Lord Larkin, Gamer, and Prince Bobby have also come to stand in support of the defense of Sanctuary. Meiun, the Father of Djinn speaks. “Use my power and he will know true peace in death.”
Then the Cultist speaks; “Silence you devils” points to the djinn.” My family and all my friends are dead because of you. My city is in ruins and my very mind is ripped to pieces” suddenly a door would appear behind him, “I know even with all the gems in this staff I have now I do not have the power to beat you all. But with this partially formed staff I can summon the rest of me!” Suddenly the door would open as a giant beam of black light would stream into the staff “To empower me!” suddenly his body would become shadows and flames and grow 15 feet tall, gripping a flaming ax! His head sprouted horns and his countenance turned demonic “NOW DIE!” suddenly he would slam down with his ax in mirriane’s direction.
Miriamne Raises her glowing Stave of Defense and his attack simply shoots off into the sky. “We shall not perish from this place!”
This time the Cultist attacks Meiun, Father of the Djinn, declaring the Djinn to be devils.
Amarok, the chaos angel unleashes the captured louse and rat spirits to choose sides. The Sapphire Djinn proclaims Djinn kind as the lesser of evils if you take care your desires.
Miriamne says : “Lut was careless…and we have all suffered…even as had we not, we should all have been condemned to destruction long past…including you and all that you held dear.”
Zodiac of the Amazons draws her ax on behalf of the side of the Royal family and the city of Sanctuary. Bast calls out to her Goddess Bastet for aid.
Meiun ‘s body slams back into his throne, as a large fissure breaks through his marbled skin. “You have power fool, but I have more.” He proclaims. His daughter, the Sapphire Djinn cries out in fear!
The Cultist was pushed back by the attack and screamed as it hurt him yet he stood up again and narrowed his eyes” DAMMIT YOU BEING POWERED BY THE DJINN. I NEED MORE POWER” would then hear the voice of his dead wife” OPEN THE GATE, LET ME IN I CAN HELP” suddenly he turned and screamed ” HOOOOOOW” Then a softer voice “Death.” He understood now. He looked back at the door and screamed “NOW!” His staff flared with power, and he impaled himself! His blood pooled on the ground, not red, but black, so black that no light would ever reflect from it. the substance then showed unknown horrors, things unnameable. The nameless ones were coming though!
“NO!” Miriamne Gasps. “They must not pass into this domain!” A huge blast of light hits the door, and tries to keep it from opening further or allowing the horror to spill from it. “Not here. NOT IN OUR HOME!” Her cry is like the crack of thunder at the dawn of time, as rays of blue and lavender corruscate about the opening.
Amarok’s spirits go to heal Meiun! The Cultist is truly betrayed now. He does not see the horrors, but instead his wife and children nd he pushes the Scepter deeper into himself, and bleeds more. He is uniting himself from all the universes. They all come to destroy!
Miriamne aims another blast of light at the Cultist himself. “See TRUE….see what you bring to this place. SEE what is coming…it is not what you think! The Betrayal is in the Staff of Despair…killer of Djinn, Destroyer of ALL the Gods themselves!”
“Yes Pure one! Make him SEE!” cries The Sapphire Djinn.
And he did, but that did not stop him, now in the depths of madness he cried I don’t care let them devour you all, let them devour me” Even as he spoke, the many of himself were at war with each other. One jumped through to make clear that the portal must be shut.
AS SOON AS I PULL THE STAFF OFF THROW US IN” he cried, and the evil version would scream” WHAT YOU DOING?” The good version screamed” WE BECAME WHAT WE HATED MOST. WE SOLD OUR HUMANITY TO BE MONSTERS TO FIGHT A MONSTERS. NOOOO MORE”
Tears begin to stream down Miriamne’s face as this other one comes to make a sacrifice beyond time and belief, to condemn himself to a place of ultimate horror and sadness…likely for all of eternity, to stop the madness and the destruction. Raises high her staff. “Gratitude…” Her voice echoes again, with a beauty now from the magicks of the Stones of Defense like creation at the dawn of time, that first burst of incredible, life giving LIGHT…and it aims to throw them both through the horrid portal.
More cultists pour through. Bast cries for more aid. Meiun casts a shield of pure white light around himself and his daughter. Miriamne cries : “ALL of you see TRUE! ALL of you DEPART. THIS is not the place for you!” Raises high the staff, and brings it down in an enormous cascade of light, blasting several of the Cultists right back into the maw of the otherwordly horror. Prince Bobby cries that he shall go Chernobyl on the Cultists, and goes Bruce Lee! Meiun turns two to ash. Bast shreds them with her swords, shielded in magic. Amarok joins the battle on the side of sanctuary. Zodi gives a mighty hoofen kick to a cultist’s chest and sends him back through with a hole in him. Meiun endows her hooves with the power of light and a blast of electricity! Bast howls “For the Princess!” as she reaches her hand around one cultist’s neck, and yanks his spine free.
It is all out war. The defenders fighting cultists, the cultists fighting each other. There is blood everywhere. Meiun hopes that it does not stain his lovely white skin.
Prince Bobby yells “for my babushka borsch , they are regenerating !! * he yells as he grabs his nunchakus from his belt and start to break skulls ” Bast shouts out her ancient language and a vortex of fangs, claws and rasp like cat tongues would fly around her, shredding cultists as fast as they appeared near her.
Amarok is quickly over come by the clones.. pinned beneath a mass of cultists that bludgeon the angel mercilessly…broken feathers stuck with blood litter the floor when they move on to attack others….while smaller downed feathers float in the air about the lifeless angel on the floor. “Then Blood for Blood it shall be!” cries Meiun as he expends ever more power toward Miriamne. “Father!?” Cries the Sapphire Djinn, and lends her power to him as well. Prince Bobby”Does what he does bes and makes a healing sandwich as he watched Amarok on the ground and kicks his way to him shoving the healing mayo into him “No comrade no one will die…”
The fight goes on. Prince Bobby gives a left hook to the scrotal sack of one cultist. Amarok gets a sandwich smashed into his face adding insult to injury, the healing sandwich does nothing but make a mess of his face as he continues to lay on the ground unconscious. Bast pauses and directs her vortex of cats around her, panting as she watches clones sucked up one by one like being taken up by a Hoover on steroids, and flayed. The Sapphire Djinn drains power from her very being, going ever more pale, and sends a healing to Amarok! Zodi sings “Kung Fu Fighting” as she smashes cultists! Meiun also sends healing to Amarok.
The Evil occultist finally has the staff ripped free by the other, and is torn from the ledge, and both fall into the void. The suction of the thing is terrible…and the other cultists, good or bad, fall into it…it even tries to draw in the defenders!
Miriamne raises the Stave of Defense in a burst of light that will hang on to the Defenders and keep them from falling in! “Hold Fast! IN the name of Sanctuary, The Djinn, and the Royal Family of Sanctuary! Hold FAST!” Meiun raises a wall of power to keep the Defenders from falling in, and his daughter gives him all but the last bit of her energy. “Those cats were faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast as lightning” before she falls back from hitting the wall “ouch” sings Zodi.
Finally nothing remains of the Cultists and the door is shut. Miriamne falls to her knees and weeps for all who have been injured…and for the Cultists most of all. “We have won…Sanctuary is Safe…HOME is safe…our entire reality…is safe!” The Sapphire Djinn then rises, and Miriamne goes to her place, to present the Staff and Stave both, giving them back into the guardianship of the Djinn.
The End…for now.
