The Multiverse

Exalted Mountains

74.5 INK

a part of The Multiverse, by Remæus.

You find yourself in the Exalted Mountains. They reign over a fair portion of Skyfall, some thrusting up from Gaia's surface and some floating freely in the air. Bridges reinforced with spells run from mountain to mountain, making safe passage for those that travel into them. Patches of cloud hang around the snow capped peaks giving the Exalted Mountains a sense of mystery. And at the highest point lays a citadel, shimmering in all its glory.

Yvandír holds sovereignty over Exalted Mountains, giving them the ability to make limited changes.

Setting


The majestic Exalted Mountains are more than awe-inspiring for those who wander upon them and set eye on the chain of risen earth. While most are fastened to the soils of Siv’en and tied to Mother Gaia, there are some which float lazily in the air and tied by nothing. Long bridges run between them in order to give passage between the portions which hover above the natural ground. Motes of magical energy manifest easily and glide along invisible shifts in the atmosphere.

The Exalted Mountains were not always a part of Siv’en and are only a few thousands of years old. A legend is known for their creation and it is said they were created by the Colossi Ni’thorne which The Precursor had bound. Such legends are found in only the most elder of tomes and scrolls which speak of Siv’en’s history.

A wide range of creatures make their home in the mountains including griffons, manticore, dragons, the great eagles, and even giants and trolls. Every now and then an elemental golem rears its maw and creates havoc on travellers. A system of crypts are found inside of the mountains but travellers beware. Many a soul has been lost to them.

Now after many millennia, an ancient people return from their home deep within one of the highest peaks of the central mountain range, the gate that hid the entrance now opened and all who come with peaceful hearts are allowed entry into the mountain home of the Realm Forgers.

A large valley also sits, the memory of a creature far too large for this planet who came with knowledge for others like he.

Ni'Thorne turned his attention to the taunted one as a lightning bolt struck his hand. Ni'Thorne, unable to feel pain, was simply ticked that his favorite finger was plummeting down. No, not the Children's favorite- his was the useful one. The broken finger tumbled down the mountain leaving a drag in the trees.

Sheodin spoke of promises and of Masters. Ni'Thorne paused for a slim second in his movement. Eras broiled with rage at this! How dare! The light in the sky began to grow brighter. The clouds were beginning to shift away. The pink of the sky seemed to have subtly faded as well. So, who did Ni'Thorne serve?

Ni'Thorne didn't really have the time to get existential with the question. Ni'Thorne was fully aware that he lived and breathed through Eras in the beginning. Especially now he owed Eras his life but for what?

A debris cloud puffed around Ni'Thorne's hip.
It took almost ten whole seconds.

Then Ni'Thorne wobbled.
And then his leg,
(the left one),
wobbled
in the complete
opposite direction
than the rest of him.

In what might have been slow motion Ni'Thorne reached for the nearest peak to the right. His hand crumbled the peak as it clenched around it, bracing himself for the inevitable. The leg, officially detached, began it's descent to the east. It plummeted towards the mountain, breaking over the tops of them into two massive segments, crushing the border of the Whispering Woods, entombing all who suffered under the fall of Ni'Thorne's leg.

This enraged Eras, and had Ni'Thorne the Colossus version of distraught - berserk. With his free arm he swung for Sheodin. The great mass of mountain rained dirt as it sailed high through the sky. Now, Ni'Thorne was relatively stuck. Gaia's heart pulsed with hope.

Suddenly, a swirling vortex appears to the southwest. You can see something appear in that direction.

Meanwhile, Sheodin also floated amidst the Exalted Mountains. He stared down the great titan Ni’Thorne with swirling arcane energy in one palm and his bristling hammer in the other. The archmage started to charge another spell when the deafening explosion rocked the mountain range.

Wind billowed past Sheodin, but he stood resolute against the shockwave. He watched as the massive stone limb tumbled into the earth, wishing that he could do more to help those unfortunate to be underneath - but his power would be helpful elsewhere.

Sheodin grabbed his robe and spun away from Ni’Thorne’s flailing fist. He transformed into a cloud of billowing mist that reformed on the opposite side of the swing. As he recovered, a tingling sensation made the fur on his neck stand on edge. Static was rapidly building up in the air, and he could feel an inferno of magical power intrude on his senses like a rising sun. Low rolling thunder rumbled from beyond the horizon.

He reached out, grabbing a handful of air, and whispered into his clenched fist. Sheodin cast it away and it sped across the mountain range to any listening ear.

“Whoever hears this message. Flee. Take cover. Do whatever you must to survive. Gaia’s judgment is about to fall upon this titan of stone, and it will shake this land to its foundations. May Ha’Ari have mercy upon you.”

Looking out from his cubby hole at the centre of the great titan's stomach Riak, saw the damage, a soft sigh escaping his lips. shocked back into reality by the voice carried by the winds.
realising and sensing the oppressive presence of magic the Builder cast a simple but powerful spell upon himself. his arm turning to black smooth metal, he checked he could articulate his fingers; nodded when he could and then punched his fist into the rock of the cave, finishing his spell so that the rest of his flesh and form transformed into this same fantastical material he closed his eyes and froze. becoming a near-indestructible statue, but he in no way could interact with the world until the spell wore off but that could take as long as untold centuries.

Sheodin teleported away from Ni’Thorne, his spell leaving a concussive burst of energy in his wake to stun the titan. Time slowed from his perspective, and he saw the flying mountain soar into view. Veins of lightning danced across the molten surface, and a crown of red and white flames shrouded the mountain’s horizontal peak. The air rushed to get out of the missile’s way, but was compressed and heated before being shunted behind like a meteor’s contrail.

A moment passed - like a fraction of a heartbeat. The mountain range held its breath as the sky burned with magic and fire. Sheodin met the eyes of his doppelganger, and they stepped into one another. He slipped into the ethereal just as the uprooted and reforged island struck Ni’Thorne’s chest like the fist of an angry god.

BOOM!

A shockwave tore across the region. Forests were incinerated. Smaller meteors were launched for miles like grapeshot. The floating mountains spun and drifted from the cataclysmic impact. The earth itself trembled from the destructive power brought down upon the titan, and collateral damage swept across the land like a wildfire.

Sheodin’s heart was as heavy as the mutated hammer in his hand, but he hoped the lives lost would be an acceptable sacrifice in order to stop the sure destruction brought about by the Colossus.

Sheodin Thundermane vanishes into nothingness, but you get the feeling they are heading somewhere else.
