Huey.

I hate you.

I am going to go somewhere else now.

Well, seeing that Horus's flood now covers all but the Steppes of this region... I think I shall create some fishing eagles to live there instead of the desert owls I had originally planned for.

Um.

This move was originally going to be much bigger, but as they say about the best-laid plans... Maybe I'll just add some aquatic plant life to the canyon waters.

Rolled an 8 for the eagles and a 20 for the plant life, so I guess that's 0 and 10 respectively. I am so seriously unlucky with this.

Leonardo threw his desk down in anger.

"FINE! I guess this world doesn't WANT me to do anything to it. This is getting me nowhere, I QUIT!"

Leo stormed off but stopped.

"But before I go." He pulled out a pair of dice. "I want to make sure everyone remembers me. I want the core of Darius to be made of solid gold, which will forever be called 'The Gold of Housingfletcher.'"

He threw the dice.

Rolled a 37.

"Figures."

He stomps away in a huff, presumably never to be seen again.

Gene looked between his comrades/competition and sighed loudly, placing his face into the palm of his hand. "Pass for the turn," he mumbled quietly as he drummed his fingers along his table.

((OOC: Gene rests for the turn))

I tap my foot, impatiently awaiting the continuation of this world's development. Even if nothing is going my way, I will see this through, for that is my ninja way holy doctrine.

In short, let's get this ball rolling again!

((OOC: FALCON ALSO NEEDS TO POST, GEEZE, TRYING TO PUT ALL THE BLAME ON ME, I SEE HOW IT IS))

Huey looked over the world, seeming unsure of himself at this juncture. Things were still going about as well as he could ask for, and now that feline fatale seemed to be a... non-issue. That should make him happy, by all rights, but for reasons he couldn't quite place, Huey felt only disappointment. Despite all his gut instincts, there was something about the way she did things... After all, she had summoned that beautiful creature, the Fellbird, which is hardly something he could argue with. Even the Zooth, for as long as they survived, despite a particularly nasty feeling in the back of Huey's throat, had a kind of ferocity to them that !#%$ could respect. Yet now, she seemed as lifeless as that head she paraded around.

Huey shook his head, trying to focus elsewhere. He wasn't sure how that woman managed to infest his thoughts so thoroughly, but he refused to let himself become obsessed with her. There were more pressing matters to attend to.

As he looked Darius over once more, Huey definitely noticed something. There was still a lack of living things, which more pressingly, made it clear that there was a lack of intelligent living things. The Zooth may have had a chance to reach that point, but the furry things wised up, and they reached the same problem that the Gurts have, in that no other gods were bothering to make things that could become part of any food chain either way. Huey was certainly happy with the Gurts, but... not quite happy enough.

As his thoughts slowly began to form together, !#%$ turned towards the so-called "Tree of Life" that he had given attention to prior. It would make a great habitat, he thought, but it would definitely require something strong, but even more than that, something intelligent enough to live there and not fall prey to the very land around them.

Yes, yes... it would do nicely.

Upon the bleak, brown branches of this corrupted tree, !#%$ would bring forth new life. Three spindly legs with sticky feet to crawl all around, with pale, brown fur to blend in with the dead leaves around them, and above all, these creatures would be blessed in their large heads with but a single eye, each of them an Eye as of the one of Cogus, disco ball-like in nature, letting no danger go unseen in this cruel environment. Arguably even more importantly, though, Huey would gift these creatures with the knowledge of how to extract the toxins from the fruit of this corrupted tree, so that they may feast upon the fruit without incident, and perhaps at some point even use the poison in weapons or traps should they reach that level of intellect.

The actions are that a new, brown, three-legged, climbing creature with eyes like that of the Eye of Cogus shall arise in the Tree of Life's corrupted branches, and they'd be given the knowledge of how to extract the poisons from that tree's fruits. Rolled a 10 and a 6, lowered to... snake eyes.

((OOC: Hey, you shut up. Both of you, I have been through a LOT OF !#%$ THIS PAST WEEK MAAAAAAAAAAN))

Horus looked towards the world after his little moment of pure terror to see the new sandy area left by his paint.

"Sniff...well...I guess maybe I could try here for a bit...while the canyon gets a bit of time for the fish to grow."

He walked over, then decided the sands should be his little petri dish. He rose his hand up into the air and decided, well, !#%$ it...make the desert full of various creatures of different shapes and sizes.

Rolled a 79

Four legged horned creates exist

by small rivers and lakes

that have their own ecosystem

and then the rivers and lakes expand slightly past their original area.

Large, towering creatures walk around the desert eating just as large cactus. When they die they are fed upon by vulture-like birds.

You create the eagles but they find it hard to fly around the tall steppes. They quickly become extinct from bumbing their heads on the stone towers and falling to their deaths.

And then you try to make the canyons plant life flourish further but end up creating poisonous plants that begin killing the fish of the canyon lake.

Messing with the core along with the recent seismic activities causes the volcano to erupt again filling up the gap put in the way of the forest.

The Tree of Life begins crawling with spiders who drink the poison from the fruit, purifying them, and the light reflected from their eyes burns away the corruption of the tree. Because of the sheer amount of spiders the tree is quickly purified to its original state in a short amount of time. Still hungry the mass exodus of spiders heads toward the bog.

The desert was full of various kinds of animals, birds, lizards, and other things. They all avoided the black pyramid.

Well, we're doing a fine job of making Darius as poisonous and inhospitable as poss--

...Oh.

Well then. If nobody MINDS...

I hereby create a race of tree people from the earth of the forest, to live around and even within the Tree of Life. They will be roughly humanoid, with bodies of trunks, limbs of roots and branches, and hair of leaves, with heads of chiseled, wooden faces and glowing eyes like dappled sunlight. They will be protectors and nurturers of the Tree of Life and the forest they live in.

Rolled a 84.

YES!

Suddenly, everyone heard a thump above them. Maybe someone landed on the roof? What's that? No roof? Mysterious.

A cool wind blows down the possibly nonexistant chimney of the gods, blowing out the theoretical fire and knocking ficticious hot coals onto the metaphorical rug, causing it to burst into flame.

CRACK! Everyone heard as the blackened fake wood crunched underneath a pair of snowboots. The sound could be heard by all young beings throughout Darius. turning around, the being backed out of the formerly firey figment and stood up, making sure his gigantic red bag cleared the effigal edge of the fabricated flue. His huge red and white coat, complimented by his black belt, glowed with joy and cheer, his absolutely and completely real beard blowing in the wind, and his hat whisping with the whipsers of billions of children's wishes.

Why if it isn't Old Saint Knack! With his rosey cheeks and stylish completely real beard he strode into the godly realm.

"HO HO HO!" He chortled as he opened his bag, and pulled out a die. "I can see this world needs some cheer. Perhaps I may be of service here." With a twinkle in his eye and a hearty throw, he tosses the die towards the ground below. "Let the snow be alive and give them breath. They will be jolly souls of good will and breadth. They'll posses the crystal waters of snow and live as long as icy winds blow. With this request I say, HO. HO. HO."

Rolled a 58.

The butler continues to stand motionless, abandoned by his master. Perhaps another will step up.
