Horus grabbed the mop from him and started to mop away the orange juice. He then walked over to the closet and saw Jeff lying on the ground.

"Uh...did you know about this?"

Finally snapping out of his train of thought, Huey (which is just way easier to type than !#%$) looked over. Upon seeing Jeff on the ground, he spoke not a word, and just gave a simple shrug.

Horus lightly tapped Jeff on the shoulder with his foot. "H-hey. Hello?"

JEFF DID WAKE UP TO THE PRODDING, FEELING INCREDIBLY WEAK. HE GRABBED ONTO HORUS, USING HIM TO PULL HIMSELF UP, LOOKING AT THE SPILL ON THE GROUND. "What all happened there?" HIS FACE DID THEN GO PALE, AND HE LOOKED AT HORUS. "Did she do it? Did that monster steal mah power?"

"U-u-uh," Horus was visibly frightened. "I...uh...."

Horus looked over to Huey. "YOUR DUTIES BEGIN NOW!" And he ran away.

Huey stared forward with a sharp intensity, a very serious look on his face as he looked in Jeff's general direction, but more as if he were looking past him than at him. "Yes, I believe she has. It'd certainly explain her sudden spike in power recently. She's begun infecting the world with her... malfunction, and trying to snuff out the beauty that is the Fellbird." he explained, his previous friendly demeanor having apparently run away with Horus. His eyes finally shifted their stare to Jeff himself, "It's good to see you're against her too, then." he went on, "And good to hear that her power isn't innate."

JEFF DID SHIFT UNCOMFORTABLY ON THE SPOT AS HUEY SAID THAT. "Ah'm..." JEFF'S NECK DID SUDDENLY TIGHTEN, AND HE GRABBED AT HIS SHIRT COLLAR. A VERY FAINT BUZZING SOUND COULD BE HEARD UNDER THE SHIRT. HE SEEMED TO CALM DOWN, AND UNBUTTONED THE TOP BUTTON ON HIS SHIRT, REVEALING A SMALL METAL NECKLACE. OR RATHER, A METAL COLLAR. IT HAD A GREEN DOT ON IT, AND AN UNMISTAKABLE CAT PAW PRINT ENGRAVED ON IT.

JEFF BUTTONED HIS SHIRT AGAIN, CLEARING HIS THROAT. "A'hm not against her, she's the best leadah we can hope fer. A'h jist hope we can all git along, an' be supah kayweh friends." JEFF DID GRAB THE MOP AND STARTED CLEANING UP HORUS' MESS, A SMALL SMILE COMING TO HIS FACE. "S'not like the powah in tha crystal can be negated by ahn equally powahful negacrystal created bah the moons alighnin over the south pole." JEFF DID CONTINUE MOPPING, SHRUGGING.

"Thah would be too simple, raight?"

Huey's eye twitched slightly, a frown quickly forming on his face. He scratched at his stomach a bit, but otherwise seemed fine.

Choosing to simply ignore the first half of what Jeff said for the time being, Huey mused "Yeah, that would be simple." He paused, seeming to suddenly be lost in thought again. After a few moments of this, he snapped to attention again, shaking his head, going on with "Yeah, that would be too simple. What's the point of beauty when it becomes conformity? This holy magic hullabaloo isn't my style. Can leave that to someone who gives a !#%$."

With that, !#%$ turned and began to walk out. "Perhaps it's time I show her just what my style's like." he finished to no one in particular.

After a few more steps, he stopped in his tracks. Wincing his face, he grumbled, "In due time. I suppose I still have that "babysitting" to do." At that moment, though, his good ol' mischievous smirk returned after far too long, it seemed, as an idea struck. "No, I suppose that's fine. All good things start small, and there's no time like the present. Yes. That will do nicely." he practically muttered to himself, making his way out once again.

"Time for the world to burn in beauty."

((OOC: So, I've got a pretty big problem. Two actually. I'm going to address them right now, as a final say on this sort of thing. First of all, mentioning actions that were just rolled for has to stop. While you can use your roll in preparation of other gods actions, acting as if they will happen for sure is a bad idea and that should be stopped. While you know this now, I'm going to continue with this post as I had planned to.

The other thing I wanted to address is that creatures have free will and while you can influence them to do things you can't or can't always control them, no matter how good your roll is. I've tried making this clear several times though action. I've given leeway based on rolls and what you're trying to do, but I'm laying down the law right now. To explain this further you're stating what you're trying to do, not every minute detail of what happens if you succeed.

So here it is: The law.))


Mecha wrote:
HE USED THE REMAINDER OF HIS POWER, AIDED BY THE PRAYERS OF HIS PEOPLE, AND HE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE ATTACKING THE FISH. AND NOT ONLY DID THEY LET THE FISH GO, THEY ALSO FED IT THE FRUIT OF THE FOREST AND AIDED IT ON ITS JOURNEY. BUT BEFORE IT WAS GONE, JEFF DID REACH THROUGH ONE OF HIS CHILDREN TO TOUCH THE FISH, GIFTING IT THE GREAT POWER OF THE FRUIT OF THE METAL FOREST. GIVING IT A MUCH MORE POWERFUL SWIMMING SPEED, AND THICKER SCALES.


Jeff finds that he is too weak to do this and not only is he too weak but he is also trying to control a tribe that does not worship him. While he did have a little power from prayer the most he could do is contact other gods, and even that caused effort when it was normally effortless. Nothing happens, the fish is caught by the Zasah and the Ayla and a great feast is held in the honor of this grand bounty. They saw its strange marking and only regarded it as a minor oddity.

Nekomusume~chan wrote:
Bastet grinned, watching the moons begin to line up above the crown. Not yet, but any moment. She didn't have time to waste. If anything were to go wrong, it would be her roll. She grasped both dice in her hands, closing her eyes. She then tossed them both, letting fate take over.

Jeff's dice, naturally being full of his abnormal luck, landed on 99. She watched her other dice tumble across the board, landing on 98. Clearly, fate was on her side. She then used her remaining power, the power she had stored, to power her role further. It was time to go to work.

The fellbird had returned to its nest, wounded. Bastet started stirring the clouds around the nest, creating a great storm over it. Her mightiest warrior reached the top of the tower, ready to face the massive bird as thunder echoed around the forest. She held her weapon to the air as she addressed the fellbird with a mighty war cry, a cry that boomed over the thunder. Lightning rained down onto the tower, striking the fellbird in several places as her weapon lit up. She then ran at the fellbird, leaping onto it and climbing up onto the bird's head. She raised her weapon high into the air, lightning striking it several times, the symbols on the blade glowing a bright pink. The warrior then turned the weapon on herself, piercing her midriff. Pink lightning erupted from the tip of the weapon, covering the fellbird. It let out one last, weak cry, before erupting in a bright, white light.

The girls at the bottom of the tower also started glowing slightly, as their bodies started to change. Wings of different colors erupted out of their backs, and their cute kitty feet turned into sharp talons. They continued their singing, praising the fellbird for its gift, as they looked up to their mighty huntress. She had grown, not quite as big as the fellbird, her arms covered in pink feathers and two huge wings having sprouted out of her back, covered in the pink feathers. She had four eyes, and sharp talons on the ends of her feet. Even her tail had feathers on it now.

Bastet nodded, turning her attention away from her new creations briefly to address her lands. The massive crystal that sat on top of her mountain was fully covered in carvings now, and it had an ominous feeling to it. She reached down to the planet, and picked up this crystal. She then put it in the center of Cogus as it lined up with the top of the volcano.

The world trembled, and all life paused for a second, looking to the moons. A bright flash of red light erupted out of the top of the tallest volcano, and went through the three moons, empowering them. The two stars turned a blood red, and the entire land was bathed in the color. All of the creatures in the land would feel a great power washing through them, as the planet rejuvenated itself. Areas that were brown would become a little greener, oceans would have more life in them. Existing tribes would have a population boost, and feel happier. And the world was a bit more kawaii.

The light would end after the next turn.


Because of the detail nature of this post I'm interpreting each action separately. The first action is to mutate the physical form of the cat girls. The second action is to change the sun red and rejuvenate the world. Anything else is not an action.

First, the Suegoy tribe are empowered by the storm and mutated. They sprout wings that match their various colors and grow talons. One of them is changed further becoming a beast of their own. A larger cat harpy with four eyes and feathered arms and tail. She became the chief of the village. If anything this was an act only showing the might of the god they worshiped. The tribe did not return to the sugar lands as Bastet had pleaded them too. Instead they stayed and worshiped the Fellbird, their god, for giving them power. A small amount of the cat harpies were sent back to the homeland, with wooden idols carved in the image of the Fellbird with their tools. They would bring their religion to their homeland. The rest of the tribe spent their time tending to the Fellbird's wounds.

Next, everything was set for the plan. The twin stars of night and day were aligned and the crystal was placed in the center of the gear. When the gear was under the stars and above the volcano a burst of energy shot from the core of the planet straight through its astral eyes. The world was bathed in red light and life was flourishing all over the planet. Animals and tribes alike all reproduced abundantly under the red stars. The wounded Fellbird and Writh both healed quickly under the red light. For the next turn it will be easier for all gods to create life, even without worship.

Finally coming upon a decision, !#%$ chose to move the egg. Specifically, to the the southern pole of the planet, completely opposite from the planet's crown, and thus no doubt mostly, if not entirely safe from the crystal's light. Horus' penguin-like creations rested there, after all; perhaps he might even take some responsibility over this offspring that was basically a descendant of his and have them protect it in some way, or something.

Rolled a 58.


The god hid his creation's child away from the red light of the moon and sun in the frozen crown opposite of their gathering.

However, Serapyr took notice of this. He looked to the ice cap's demi-god who has since aged. No longer a child yet not full grown it was beginning to realize how different it was from its peers and how truly alone it was in the cold. The Panoar had became his companion as he rode around the ice looking for meaning in his life. Serapyr tried to manifest to the penguin-like bird, to tell him of the horrible egg of great monsters and that he alone was the one that could stop the creature from hatching.

Rolled 81

The holy child saw the shimmering of an ethereal fire in the blizzard and approached it with curiosity. He had never seen fire before. It showed him visions of the creatures parents, the ruin of the battlefield where they fought, and the egg's location. The bird, lovingly named Squawk by its parents as they are not quite to the level of intelligent naming a tribe might be, saw this as meaning in its life, its purpose, and set out to find the egg. There it was, the snow around the egg had melted as if receding in terror and it lie there in the frozen grass. Squawk's mighty stead reared back and dashed the egg, the contents spilling out. He returned to the others of his kind though they were simple animals.

However in the remains of the egg something stirred and the fetus of the abomination moved as if it was too horrible for even death to accept it. Though the creature was horrible and deformed in its premature state and could not grow it was still half alive.

Thankfully, he has the perfect way to use his enhanced power.

He looked to the rivers, then to the icecap. It's time for his namesake to return to the forefront. He's the falcon god, gosh darnit.

He focused on the entirety of the rocky mountainside surrounding the river. With his rested power, this would not be a problem at all. He then willed the rocky terrain to form a new type of falcon. These falcons, born of the rock, would be naturally resistant to many ills of the world, including potential sludge and acid from the fellbird's presence. They would also be naturally engaged in the well-being of the Ayla and Leyar tribes, to the point that a few of those tribesmen would be able to tame the lesser falcons if they so desired. Regardless, they would aid the tribesmen in any way they can.
Meanwhile, the falcons would be naturally friendly to the penguins of the south, as they shared a creator. The benefits of aided relief to the tribes near the metal forest as well as the penguins of the south would make traversing the river easier for those three groups.

He held his makeshift die up in the air, then cast his roll in an albeit overdramatic action. TIME TO FLY!

Rolled a 70


Though the tribes showed him no kindness and literally ate his face Horus set forth to building them protection. Large, stone birds that laughed at gravity and flew to spite it came crawling from the mountains. They had a natural resistance to acid of creatures like Writh. They protected the Ayla, Zasah, and penguins. The Zasah were the only ones interested in the birds friendliness and tamed the smaller ones. Flying gave them a clear advantage in the ecosystem of the jungle. Ayla preferred the ground and their pools while the penguins were just animals and thus simply not interested in anything other than eating fish and reproducing.

EVENT: The Ayla are now considered intelligent enough to be a tribe though they do not operate like one as they eat from their pools and reproduce as a mountain. Because they can travel between pools quickly and easily they will all be considered one tribe. While their population count will be together, at any given moment there will be about 25 at a pool and 75 males at the volcano.
EVENT: Other creatures had heard the call of Writh and arrive in the jungle to meet it. First to arrive are its four Fathom kin. From the desert by the jungle arrives. It looks like all the Fathom did when they were made. The Fathom from the brightdark ice caves arrives with a perpetually frosted look to it. Then the Fathom from the Desert of Sorrow arrives. It looked as if the aura of hopeless had even been weighing on a beast such as itself and though they did not age it looked like it had as it looked tired and its feathers turned grey. And then the Fathom from the sea arrives with glowing red eyes. A great serpent came from the swamp continent it had beautiful scales it would use to lure people to it so it could eat them with its monstrous mouth. A large and lumbering creature came from the desert continent with brown fur and large claws, it was the reason life stood there no longer. Then from the center of the earth came a huge, green insect like creature. Its many spawn ruled the remains of that half of the world's sprawling cave system.
NOTICE: The Golems do not gain the bonus of the sun as they do not reproduce normally.

TRIBES
Bolba 1: Yic'sil: Worshiping !#%$. Pop. 75

Looking over the events that took place, !#%$ sighed. "Life's nothing without risks, I suppose." he said to himself.

---------------------


!#%$ approached Bastet, his trademark smirk as present as ever. "Hey, just came to say thanks. Thanks for helping me realize how I should be doing things. Thanks for showing me to never hold back. And most importantly, thanks for giving me something to fight against." he said with a chuckle. "Have a little gift for your troubles." he went on, closing in with the most vile of actions: a kiss, right on the cheek.

Immediately, he began spewing chunks, as one might expect: but he managed to quickly launch it directly into a sack he had brought with him. This went on for about a solid minute; makes one wonder just what this dude eats.

"Oh yeah, and thanks for the idea." !#%$ finished as he swung the bag over his shoulder, trying his best not to look as horribly feeble and meek as he felt, his skin now ghostly pale.

With that done, he turned and made his way off. There were things to do.

---------------------


!#%$ sighed at the loss of the fish he noticed on the way back, and considered making a replacement, but there were more pressing matters: namely, the fetus. He was hesitant, but as he said: what was life without risks? With its current position and how he was handling things, he could work double time and enact the next part of his plan while he was at it. Without another thought, he opened the bag and poured the vomit over the fetus, first, hoping that such a vile creature would obtain the nourishment it needed from it. Once that was finished, he turned the bag over to the penguins that lay around him. He wasn't about to pretend they even began to have a chance at such, however, he used some power of his own on them. They would be partially-melted, no doubt, looking like some sort of horrible zombie-penguins, while simultaneously fusing with the vomit, turning them into creatures considerably larger, considerably tougher, and considerably more vile.

He took special care that the dear Squawk would not take part in this puke bathing, though. !#%$ had a special plan for that one. That would come in due time. Indeed, he went to great lengths to make sure Squawk would not be tainted, but still live all the same, away from the likely-hostile puke-penguins, now.

Rolled a 29.

Noticing the monster party going on up with the Writh, but not really having the resources to do anything with it at the moment, !#%$ knew exactly what he had to do.

Free action: High-five Corves.

Horus walked back to his little area. He knows the amount of risk he took putting another in charge of his duties. He probably didn't realize just how much risk putting THAT ONE in charge.

Nonetheless, he saw what occurred and was amazed and disappointed. The Fellbird was at full strength now. No fish to help him see his true creator.

No hope.

Horus sat down on the ground, close to his globe. He took out a fabled second die of unspecified origin. It would allow him to calculate his plan. He rolled. He saw the number in secret and muttered to himself. Having such time away from his flock, both old and new. Not to mention poor, young Squawk. Nonetheless, it was an opportunity he couldn't pass over. If his plan works, all strife in the world will end.

Nonetheless, it was something he must deal with if he is to finally deal with the Fellbird once and for all. And in doing so, his name will be echoed throughout the chambers! He won't be such a worthless fraud anymore.

He will have saved the world.

Horus closed his eyes and dropped into slumber, his power charging.

Rolled a 68

((OOC: Since I'm charging up and it would be rather dumb to just repeat "he continues to charge power", could I utilize Free actions to just keep an eye on the Fellbird even if the character's asleep?))

The Omnisphere radiated a booming power, reflective of the might of the clouds. It spoke to Aether.

The Great Curiosity sees that you, like he, are a being that wields great power. He is curious as to your mechanisms and intentions in the world. Do you limit yourself to the clouds? Have you begun to form life to dwell on this planet?

A few days back, I got OFFICIAL PERMISSION from the almighty Raxy herself to post something to tide people over as an intermission (because a single still image totally counts as an intermission that'll tide people over for X number of weeks), so cue some wonderful elevator music in your head!

Is it playing? Catchy, right? Nice and relaxing, too.

Yeah, that's pretty smooth, ooh, got some jazz going in there even, it's nice.

Okay, I think we're about ready.













ENJOY, THE WRITH.

I was listening to a Lets Play of Elevator: Source when I read this post. I literally heard elevator music in my head.

Yeah, I'm afraid.
