Fall of the Sorcerer-King

MUSIC:

  • Confronting Ras Ozymandias
    • The Mirrors of Alqazh the Djinn
      • Sentient mirrors in a pocket dimension
      • Forged by his djinn
      • They attempt to use their intimacies against them.
      • The Hound of Ar hunts them through the maze of their own intimacies, forcing them to bleed essence, willpower and in the end, health levels.
      • Defeating the Hound:
        • Outsmarting it with your own empathy and ties to your Intimacies.
        • The eyes! They gaze into your soul.
        • VEMO: Kinda effective
          • His friends in the Steel Lotus
          • His master
          • His beloved
        • BELL: Not effective
          • Her father's ship in a Storm
        • HORIZON: Not really
          • The blood in the streets, screams of the innocent
          • He defies the evil
        • PASSION: Effective
          • Chiaroscuro
          • The pained screams of his brother, the Valiant Zephyr
          • The distraught shouts of his wives
          • The others manages to get him back to full speed.
    • He envies the Exalted for their unearned power
    • The Seven Faces of Ras Ozymandias
      • Fighting **Naji Feathers-of-Magma the Garda Bird**
      • and **Karatas ap Esha** the Demon-blooded Warrioress
      • Fighting him to a standstill while the smart character judges which Ras is him.
      • Last defence of the Sorcerer - He says that he has bound himself to these principles of Creation's pillars - Nice little addendum, there is no way to tell which one is lying.
        • Face 1: The Grand Vizier
          • "I am foundation, strong of soul and might, who carries on me the weight of civilised society and without me the world will crumble."
        • Face 2: The Scholar of Desire and Ambition
          • "I am the font of knowledge, the seeker of hidden lore who reclaims what has been lost by petty squabbles. Without me, you will lose any chance of reclaiming the past."
        • Face 3: The Hermit of Envy and Spite
          • "I am the strength of character, the iron of the soul. Without me, there will be no true soul in the world."
        • Face 4: The Lord of Demons and Fury Tamed TRUE!
          • "I am the tamer of wickedness, the one who bend the enemies of the Gods to my will. Without me, the Demons will run rampant across Creation."
        • Face 5: The Sorcerer beyond Compare
          • "I am master of secrets untold. The lord of a thousand and one words of power and prosperity. Without me, the glories I have built will be lost!"
        • Face 6: The King of Ruins and Ashes SECOND
          • "I am the King of Glory of Grandeur. Sovereign of thousand lands and an empire mightier than any in Creation. Without me, there shall be ashes and ruins."
        • Face 7: The Tattered King FIRST
          • "I am the soul who have seen the truth, and with that I shall bring the mighty to their knees. Without me, there will be no hope."
      • Social Conflict - Judge him on his Lies to find the correct one.
    • The demise of the Sorcerer-King

COMBAT:

  • Karatas duels with Horizon and Vemo
  • Neji fights Bell
  • Passion attempts to shoot the Ras Clones to find the right one
    • Tattered King and Ruins and Ashes first
    • Then, the Hermit
  • Karatas seems to gain the upper hand against the two, almost bisecting Horizon, but he dashes sideways and attacks Neji instead, bringing the Garda to a standstill instead of destroying Bell.
  • However, Karatas then turns on Vemo, and even though the street thug has plenty of resistance, he falls to her immaculate bladework.
  • Horizon clashes with Neji in a mighty display of fierce swordsmanship, although even as they exchange swordblows, one of sunlight and one of fire, no one can claim the advantage.
  • Bell, as a true tigress, is loath to leave a opening unexploited and with a lunge, she surges forward in golden rush, ploughing her claws into the back of the garda, opening him for a swordcut through the stomach as he reels in pain. He explodes in a fiery blaze, his mission failed and his beloved is alone, but manages to fiercely singe the Solars.
  • Bell and Horizon stumbles to their feet, running towards Karatas, engaging her
  • She manages to fend them off with great difficulty, even as the archer shoots her with a Phantom Arrow, stunning her advance. Her demon-blood is strong at this point.
  • Bell goes down to Karatas blade-weave, but Horizon exhales a galestorm against on of the Ras, hoping to kill the sorcerer. By a miracle, he finds him, as he is weaving a spell of potent destruction against them. Passion unleashes an arrow, bringing the sorcerer to his knees and fueled by his fury, Horizon unleashes the storms in his soul once more, casting the fallen king through the mirrors of his illusions again, slaying Ras Ozymandias!
  • A small wooden figure is placed at the dying king, as he withers into nothingness.

AFTERMATH

  • The Palace of Dreams dissolve
  • Karatas is distraught, her master is dead, her beloved is gone
    • Mara fetches her to her mother's side, which is witnessed by the Solars
    • Passion attempts to claim Karatas as a prisoner, but Mara just chides the Iron Wolf, and speaks of the oaths and terms that was forged (?) (burned into the sand)
  • Horizon finds his father that dwells within the mirror
  • Raknar is the first to approach, and explains what has happened in the hours since Ras' death.
  • Nala is hunting the looters and within hours, the once mighty kingdom of the Sorcerer-King is ruled by free men.
  • Ambrus Khar explains what it means to be a Chosen of the Sun. In broad terms, more or less, he speaks of power and of the deception of the immaculate faith.
