Post Re: Equilibrium Universe RtD Q&A
Code:
(Rough translation of the twelve passages of Caelum)

The great sky of Caelum stirred,
and with two great arms,
one of light and one of dark,
gave substance to the world.

Barren lands without power,
so seven gifts sent down
to nourish the wastes,
each a blessing and a curse.

The first of earth,
strong and steadfast,
upheld stability,
and forced conformity.

The second of water,
flowed as one,
in a uniting faith,
and unrelenting horde.

The third of wind,
soared unbound,
travelling free,
and heartless neglect.

The fourth of fire,
rushed outward,
a measure of courage
and recklessness.

The fifth of ice,
cold and still,
maintained a calm,
and effort of sloth.

The sixth of lightning,
a stroke of command,
an order of law
and oppression.

The seventh of life,
brilliance of thought,
a soul of art
and evil deceit.

Overwatch to Kamilla, what is your status?

Kamilla to Overwatch, status is unchanged, no contact, location is still east of the forest bulge.

Overwatch to Kamilla, we’ve just lost contact with Seer Three. Right before losing contact, one of them pulsed the signature of a witch they located, matches one of our targets.

Kamilla to Overwatch. We’ve found them then. What’s the location of the identified one?

Overwatch to Kamilla, location unknown, but Seer Three was about three kilometers south of your location when we lost contact. We’re moving now to regroup with you Kamilla, sit tight and

The telepathic message ends.

Kamilla to Overwatch, status.

Silence.

Torrent: ”We’ve lost contact with Overwatch.”

Plague: ”Looks like it’s up to us.”

Mission: Hunt down and kill a pair of witches that have been razing towns and cities in the area. The witches are supposedly stronger than normal, reducing everything to ashes and rubble, only leaving a handful of survivors to spread the tale.

Contact with Seer One, Two, and Four were all lost within the past ten minutes, and now Seer Three and Overwatch.

The last remaining party, the kill-team, armed with the legendary Disaster weapons and led by Kamilla herself, should be more than enough to deal with two rampant witches.

Torrent: ”I want a large circular formation, about fifty meters of space between you and the people to your sides. If these witches took out the other parties fast enough that they couldn’t let out a distress pulse, best not to make ourselves an easy target.”

The seven Disaster weapons get into formation - Whirlwind, Quake, Blizzard, Plague, Wildfire, Thunderstorm, and Torrent, the last wielded by Kamilla, the Second of Caelum’s weapon master.

Wildfire: ”You think it’s really just two witches? Those things aren’t supposed to get any stronger than a top-of-the-line chirop fire mage, and I’m pretty sure two of ‘em aren’t capable of wiping out Overwatch that fast. There’s gotta be more of ‘em.”

Torrent: ”However many there are, whatever they are, we’ll be ready. Broad daylight, open field in every direction for a few kilometers, we’ll see ‘em coming long before they’re in casting range.”

The seven weapon users wait, scanning the horizon, alert for any sign of movement. Minutes pass without any sign of life.

Blizzard: ”Think they just took out our eyes and communication and then ran?”

Torrent: ”No telling. Stay alert.”

Several more minutes pass, some of the warriors shifting from foot to foot, twirling their weapon, waiting for something to show up.

An ear-piercing shriek and an energetic explosion, Kamilla whirls around only to be blinded by two white-hot explosions.

Torrent: ”CONTACT!”

Wildfire, Plague, and Torrent leap away from the destruction, taking a quick second to take it in.

Where Whirlwind and Thunderstorm once stood are craters filled with molten rock, the weapons floating on top unharmed, the users nowhere to be seen.

Two dark figures stand on the plains, one where Blizzard was, the other over Quake. The telltale pointed, brimmed hat with the top sagging slightly back, the black, flowing dress. They're witches, but not the normal ones that stood no taller than a human. Both were easily four meters high, with stout, powerful beaks of shining black metal sprouting from their faces, a dozen glowing red eyes visible under the shade of their hat.

Each of their fingers end in a white-hot claw-like blade, one claw in each hand longer than the rest, surpassing that of a greatsword. The charred, shredded remains of a weapon user falling out of each of their grasps.

Plague: ”No...”

The witches surge forward, moving faster than their size should permit. Wildfire unleashes a stream of flames, only for one of the witches to charge directly into it and, reaching the source in the blink of an eye, slicing apart the weapon user’s armor and body into pieces with a few swipes.

Plague ducks and backpedals, avoiding two lethal swings only to be struck with a glowing orange orb, exploding into a burst of heat and gore.

Twin water lances shoot towards the witches, both nimbly dodging before rushing towards Torrent, the last weapon user moving like a blur to avoid the storm of burning, razor-edged claws and searing flames. One of the witches grabs on to the Torrential Glaive, pulling it away. The weapon, not wishing to be taken, forces its master to keep hold, tearing off her right hand as the polearm is flung across the field.

Kamilla’s armor disintegrates, and just as a glowing scythe comes down upon her, she flicks her left hand up, forming an arch of artificial matter that slows the strike long enough for her to leap out of the way, the witch’s claw cleaving clean through and striking the space where Kamilla once stood. As the last member of the kill-team lands on the ground, she stumbles and falls over, her right leg missing below the knee.

The twin witches stand over Kamilla, scrutinizing her form.

”I like this one.”

A crackling whisper, sounding of an old hag with charred lungs.

”She will get stronger. Will be more fun.”

The witches turn to leave, Kamilla pushing herself up into a sitting position.

Kamilla: ”Is that it!? Aren’t you going to devour me, feed me to your bastard witchlings!?”

"Already ate."

Kamilla looks at them, angry, confused.

"This is our sport."

The air shimmers around the witches as they bend space around them, gradually fading from view.

Kamilla: ”I’ll kill the both of you! I’ll gut you like pigs and turn your cores into weapons to slaughter all of your kind!”

One of the witches turns around, its appearance distorted by the barrier forming. The many eyes narrow and its beak bends into a monstrous replication of a smile.

"Call us, the Chaos Weapons."

Quote:
An ancient Caelum tale of a woman that would appear during a battle, turning the tide and leading one side to victory. The woman was called the Hero of the March, and later the Saint of the March, eventually being shortened to Saint March over time.

In Caelum tradition, the title Hero of the March is an honor bestowed upon the rare woman in conflict who takes the front lines, leading their allies into the fray and claiming victory, with the belief that she is empowered by the original Saint March.
