Description

Hoargraskr, spurned, was unloved even by the other Colossi, for his was the force of Spirit, deemed to be a lowly, mortal aspect. He appeared as a giant, legged serpent of snow white scales. Though he was lesser than his siblings, he was the most cunning and brutal. He alone could communicate with the People of Gaia, and in that regard, could give them hope that only ever failed. In vain, the Children would try to bargain with the White Wyrm for protection from the other Colossi, and every time, it would be for naught. In time, when the Firstborn had grown wary of the White Wyrm, he reverted to the simple minded violence of his brethren, and spread waves of anger and sorrow across all the planet.

So begins...

The sound of glass shattering echoed throughout the Crystal Tower.

The Stone of Spirit, placed here long ago, had shattered. Something that would have been thought impossible by Those Who No Longer Roam. In the ages since they wandered Gaia much had changed. External forces came into play, and so the native forces of Gaia were weakened. In their weakened state, Eras flexed his power. A colossus officially woke up. Hoargraskr laughed; let Nightfall begin.

While the Stone of Earth remained in it's safe spot, it hummed. Far off in the Exalted Mountains, Ni'Thorne began to stir. Though the mind of the great Colossus was still trapped here, it seemed Eras himself was channeling power to puppeteer the Earthen beast. As grateful as Ni'Thorne was for being brought to life, part of Ni'Thorne resented Eras for being the cause of his entrapment.

Of similar opinion, Maelstr stirred.

A white serpentine being slithered out from under the foot of the risen jotunn. The Jotunn was not a colossus, despite what the rest of Gaia may perceive. Hoargraskr warmed with excitement as he made his way to Iskjerne Bay. Yes, a Colossi had risen; not as expected. It had been too long since the Colossi had been allowed a mind. Thanks to otherworldly forces, the stone which trapped the mind of Hoargraskr had shattered. Let Nightfall commence.

Kettil Flatnose continued through Asvith's Ravine on his way to the forge at Iskjerne Bay on the edge of the Weargtooth Mountains, being driven along in his spoked wheeled supply wagon by four giant oxen. As he neared the steep rocky trail over the mountains, a gust of wind suddenly blew his wide brimmed pointed hat off his head. Kettil placed his hand on his head to catch it as he looked up to see an enormous jotunn towering high above him. There before him was a single dwarven fisherman, whistling and singing a dwarfish folk song while fishing in the,,, sand? What was he expecting to catch in the ravine?

Just then, his questions were answered as Dvalinn the Dvergar felt his line go tense. He had snagged something with his hook. Something very big, as he struggled to hold on to his fishing pole. Suddenly, a massive white serpent would emerge from the sands and slither around Asvith's ankle on it's way up the mountains towards Iskjerne, directly ahead of Kettil along the winding trail. Dvalinn held on tightly and reeled in, jumping off of Asvith's toe on to Hoargraskr's scaley back as the colossus zoomed past him. Kettil couldn't believe his eyes. He shook his head quietly and continued on his way.

They would find the ground increasingly hard to cut through. It was a harder road in the frozen mountains sucked dry of life. The caves weren't quite as large as the aliens had initially thought.

As it so happened a strange chill came about the place. It wasn't cold, though it did send a shimmer of glory down their spines. There was a whisper in the aether of the cavern, whirling about in the shadows, breathing unto their hearts glory; despite the task ahead.Invisible to the naked eye it swam.

General Hama felt a shiver down his spine, it was an odd sensation. He stopped for a moment to look up from the map, only to see Kozuki offer a shrug.

He was about to go back to the map when he caught the sight of a young woman off to the side, the sound of her feet on the muddy ground not lost on him.

"Yuriko?" Hama said, looking up and to the woman as she walked past him.

"I'm going to save Seno." She said, as psionic energy welled up around her, causing the ground to shudder.

She slowly began to levitate, and move towards the Iron gate, stopping just short of the threshold.

"We're supposed to wait until we get a report from our agents on the other side!" Hama called out, but it was no use, Yuriko was going to do her own thing.

She slipped through the gate, fists clenched, and faded into the darkness on the other side.

The great white serpent had dove into the snow and disappeared into the mountains, chuckling about it's game with the mortal. With a shimmer Hoargraskr was again unseen.

As Yuriko entered Gaia's fields a presence made itself glaringly obvious. While the white serpent was invisible to the naked eye there was very clearly something large and powerful present. Faint winds echoed around Oor cavern despite there being nowhere for it to come from. The breeze playfully kicked up dust before Yuriko.

From down Nyrman pass Hoargraskr psionically called out to Yuriko, beckoning her to follow the energy. There was something irresistible about the call of Hoargraskr. Being the titan of spirit Hoargraskr was always better than the others at touching the hearts of the Children of Gaia- the mortals who walked her realm.

The pull was strong and coming from the large cavern to the north. It seemed to be harboring a secret.

The sound of whispers grew stronger, clearly coming from an opening to the west. The terrain grew harder to traverse the closer one got to the western opening. The challenge was easy to ignore considering the pull coming from there. Anyone who came to Pannig Pass struggled to resist the urge to follow the pull, if it wasn't the pull to bring them here in the first place. No matter how hard one tried, the whispers were impossible to decipher.

Yuriko 'Omega' Matsui entered into the cavern and looked about, the darkness was getting to her, so she coalesced a sphere of brilliant white energy, and threw it into the center of the room to illuminate it. She was going to find the source of the whispers, and crush it.

The great sphere of light cast thousands of shadows about the cavern, the stalagmites glittering in the light. It was a beautiful sight to be seen, if not for the chill which set in as Yuriko progressed deeper into the cave system. The sound of running water wasn't far off- as was the sound of scales on scales.

Something large was moving about.

There was a cacophony of shattering as calcium deposits broke and fell, the reverberation of psychokinetic energy blasting through them. Within the shattering the slithering continued.

"Me too, child, me too..."

The whisper echoed about as the last of the broken stalagmites and stalactites clinked to rest- and the slithering came to a distinct stop.

Yuriko looked up, and then all around, she was still floating a few inches above the ground, her eyes glowing brilliantly with a violet hue.

She focused her attention on a singular point in the cavern above them.

The earth rumbled in protest as rock fractured, and dirt lost its form, like a great atlas, Yuriko exerted her psychic energy to lift the dirt above her.

"I am going to save my friends!"

Yuriko called out, the ground rumbling even louder as her psionic energies coalesced into the ceiling above them, her eyes flaring a brilliant purple. It was about to reach a fever pitch, and the mountain about to blow it's top, those above could be thinking a volcano was about to erupt, and that was almost the truth.

"What are you!? Show yourself!" The woman demanded.

"I have no desire to rule this world, I only want to see my friends!" Yuriko called out. She started to vibrate the air around her, sending out psychokinetic pulses to gauge the reflection of her surroundings, a clever sort of echolocation.

"Now show yourself!" She demanded.

Some time Later...

In the time since the first incident with the Iskjerne Vikings, the orders finally came down to reinforce the breach point with the gate that lead into Gaia. One thousand and three hundred Taiyou soldiers were working to pour concrete, reinforce the cavern walls, and install a thick, reinforced carbon nanosteel door in place of the iron gate.

In the days that followed, Taiyou construction personnel, and the handy Yunboros worked to install the door, sparks flew, and the sound of arc welders filled the cavern, as General Hama quietly oversaw the construction.

"We need to make sure to install failsafes here, and here." The General instructed, as he placed his hand on the map of the cavern. "We have a two tier design, we'll build a concrete redoubt in the middle chamber of the cavern, so if the initial doorway is breached from the other end, the failsafe will go off, and flood the chamber with nerve agents." Hama said, gesturing to the designs, while glancing over to a group of Taiyou Engineers who were pouring reinforced concrete on the far side of the chamber, while another group were installing duct-work for the gas.

Hama brought his gaze to the reinforced door, there was an audible, metallic thud as iron slugs engaged locks, and the door sealed shut, a handful of welds being applied, the lead engineer returning to the General.

"The door has been installed, sir!"
