Miroslaw felt the fury swelling up within him. His face grew flush at the thought of what this contraption did to him. This crystal was the reason he was forced to go through such a punishing journey only to end up right back to where he started out. He desired nothing more than to dismantle this thing in one way or another, but it was powerful. He just wanted to leave this place, but he did not want to leave without Gargamel. He was not certain what he was doing. Though, he didn’t think he would be able to remain out of sight for very long at all. He had to think!
The last time, he was taken by surprise. He was unknowing of those strange claws that it controls. Still, he was unsure if he could face it head on. He thought about shooting and arrow at the giant crystal, but that would likely do nothing. It was like a giant one that the spider things had, and probably much more durable. He decided to very discretely pull his bow and notch, but continue to observe what was happening to try and pick up any information that could be helpful.
Death is no more than turning us over from time to eternity. Whether that eternity is damnation or salvation is determined in the time we have.

Hearing steps behind her, Dionne stopped in mid step, and turned around on her heel.
"I thought you said you were going to get help?" Being the lone rescuer would look better in Neko's eyes, and Dionne kind of wanted to impress her. Not sure why herself just yet why she wanted to do that, she was a little bit pissed at Red for earlier, as they could've maybe avoided the encouter.
"That's the wrong spot, it's the one on your left." "Please, I'm tired." "I'm sorry, that didn't sound like a magic converter going into its slot."
Gargamel whimpered as he carried a metal cylinder into the pedestal the giant crystal rose out of. Still safe from their view, Miroslaw could hear a great many things going on in the giant room where he fell from, including the giant metal claws moving about. He could move closer to see his employer, Gargamel, tinkering with the artifact he came to study in the first place only now as a laborer working for the mysterious entity that resided in the giant green crystal.
"Hurry up little meat bag, do you want to be swallowed by scarabs?"
Redblade grabbed hold of his arachnid and managed to hop on the back, making the monster rotate and shake to try shake the warrior off. As it took the masked man for a ride, Miroslaw charged in and stuck his sword in its abdomen before ripping it, causing a flow of organs to spill and the monster to weaken as it collapsed to the ground.
The werebear had covered its eyes as webbing got in them, and roared defiantly as it was becoming encased in the sticky thread. So concentrated was the arachnid in trying to suppress this new threat that it had not accounted for Dionne as the beauty came and slashed its legs, causing it to stumble.
"No!" was all it had time to say before the creature came and stabbed its claw right into the chest before ripping it upward. The bear's strength was massive and easily freed itself from the web prison made in haste.
When Dionne spoke to it, it appeared to not have heard what she said as rage was the only thing that left its growling maw. With another swipe the bear attempted to kill Dionne as well, before an ax flew through the air and struck its mighty claw.
"There's no man in this thing! It's just a beast now, run!" cried Dieter as he prepared a spell to try and halt the beast in its tracks.
She rolled her eyes at him and turned to face the corridor. Wondering what Red took her for, she gave a heavy sighed, reflecting both pain and dissapointment.
"If I had some sort of equipment, or you can find me some healing plants that grow down here then I might be able to. I'm not a fairy! " She said with anger, and went down the corridor, staying low and quiet.
I can't believe you're making do this, Gray. Don't you dare make me count these points again or I'll cry, 392 points out of 394.
Race: Human Age 20 Height: 5 foot 7 inches Weight: So rude, but 130lbs. Hair: Black. Eyes: Green. Skin: Pale. Notable Features: One of Marlena's most noteable features is evident in the fact that most men, and some women, rarely look her in the eye. The other asset is best viewed when she is walking away.
Marlena is beautiful, extremely so and she has learned to use this to her advantage. Tall and slender, she chooses her garments carefully, enhancing features that would draw the eye of someone foolish enough to trust a pretty face, but a fit and cut that would conceal a weapon or two. Green eyes, pale skin with long black hair that falls well past her shoulders, she can imitate sophistication and education when she must, but communication is rarely needed except to offer a glass of something to her host. Apart from these encounters, she is an unsociable creature, always leaving well before the sun breaks free over the horizon and disappearing into her fox hole.

He spoke to himself as he kept his eyes on the mutilated deer then towards the rustling bushes ahead. It seemed like some wild hungry animal was nearby. Whatever ate this deer would probably make for a great meal for him he thought. He licked his lips as he slowly made his way towards the bushes where the noise came from. His axes at the ready to cut the beast down.
Dionne dropped even lower and froze at the sound. Something wasn't right, and she wasn't sure of her next steps.
Knowing the pain of being left alone, she considered saving, what she thought to be a child, but knew that it'd be a huge risk for her. Her internal struggle continued for a few seconds, and her past prevailed. She couldn't leave a child that she has suffered.
Looking around, she attempts to find a way to sneak inside, to see what she can do. Holding back her own tears, Dionne finds it quite difficult to keep her mind off her past.
There was no response from Zarr's exclamation of warning save for the rustling of brush ahead. As he neared the source of the wail he discovered what had made it. A deer lay mutilated and ravaged by the bank, it's head twisted and partially submerged in the water, the source of the blood.
There was not much left of the inside of the animal and much of the back end, primarily the legs seemed to have been all but devoured. Whatever had done this it was swift, and efficient.
