Bones is a malevolent Minion


Watching his step, Bones kept looking up at the portal and the water and the tentacle. He felt the entropic power dripping from above, but was it affecting the portal itself? Was it shrinking or threatening to close somehow?

He kept following WAAAAAAAGH, mostly to see what would happen but also because the orc was heading north towards the uumies. The Warlord would no doubt hold his own, but if necessary Bones could either smash some enemies or blow the horn that he'd been given. That would rally some more greenskins to help kill the uumies.

For all intents and purposes? The portal was getting bigger as far as Bones could tell as the creature beyond almost seemed to be tearing it wider through sheer bulk. The over all effect being that it was speeding up the spell’s innate entropic qualities - all magic after all broke apart sooner or later - hastening the effects that the Eye of Jorel Orok was manifesting.

Up above as they tore across the countryside, for a moment they’d even see the creatures eye. As large as a cart’s wheel, it was orange in hue and looked not unlike a large, angry grapefruit.

Tentacles flailing about, water cascading down from the heavens, and up ahead? WAAAAAAAGH and Bones could see a corpse of trees where a Human encampment was slowly being pulled up. It’d been some time after all since the Baron Leonard had paid for his mercenary army, and now? With the sign of coin being somewhat lacking under the original terms and conditions? They were deserting.

From the shouting and panic as one of the lookouts caught side of the monster in the sky? Very, very much inclined to desert.

The Merchant Baron wasn’t paying anywhere nearly enough for that.

Since the Warlord was perfectly capable of looking after himself, Bones kind of just tagged along for the trip. "The beast is almost free," he shouted at WAAAAAAAGH, while the orc did some shouting of his own. Water continued to pour down.

The ogre grinned as they reached the first uumies. He expected WAAAAAAAGH to drop the tentacled monster on their heads, which would be quite a sight to behold. Then again, the Warlord didn't seem to slow down much. Should Bones deal with the uumies or were they already running for their lives?

They didn’t. They really, really didn’t.

As wealthy as the Merchant Baron Leonard was, as asine as the negotiations conducted by the man named Creed had been to their strong advantage? It wasn’t enough to deal with a massive Orc, an Ogre and whatever in Aeternia was drifting lazily above their heads a few hundred meters up with it’s waving tentacles and was that a beak?

The Mercenaries broke their encampment far more quickly than they’d anticipated, scattering and providing a clear path (well, without opponents anyway) of debris, bedding rolls and the remains of several campfires that had burnt down to mere embers.

Above the pair, the portal was collapsing in upon itself and the creature was becoming that much more visible. Some form of sea monster native to the northern coast of the Imperial seas, something unseen within the Sherian. All orange tentacles, a huge eye and a beak…and it seemed quite unlikely that it’d be contained within the Eye of Jorel Orok’s spell.

No, but it was very likely that it’d reach the Phondra Woods all the same.

The Warlord couldn't blame them. It helped that them running away made things a lot easier for him, of course.

Anyway, where were they running? Well, more north, probably. Up to where the uumies had been gathering up. Best to get as deep into their territory as possible before dropping this giant thing on them.

Bones shifted his attention between WAAAAAAAGH and the sea beast right until the point upon which he reached the edges of recently deserted Imperial encampment. He'd inadvertently slowed down, and then came to a halt. For a moment, orc and Eye were forgotten. Surrounding the ogre were all kinds of hastily abandoned possessions. His eyes widened, and a sly smile formed on his rough face.

"Mine," he mumbled in his native language, and started sifting through the debris in search of treasure. Everyone knew that uumies had the best trinkets.

The Mercenaries were scattering mostly to the east and north, avoiding running at the Warlord and well, given the general state of the Sherian? West was ill-advised. No, the Humans wanted away, and away they were running into the Phondra Woodland and towards civilization.

Gigantic tentacle monsters in the sky and charging Ogres and Orcs were not civilized.

Suffice that as WAAAAAAAGH lost his companion and hit the Phondra Woods? Bones found himself the brand new owner of a mess of an encampment. Blankets and bedding, the remains of a spit that still had a good amount of roast turkey upon it. Saddlebags and a few discarded weapons. Within the saddlebags though were the most likely place of actual treasure – coins in silver and gold that the Imperial’s used as currency along with wads of parchment covered in ink scribbles.

One of the bags also had a small amount of gemstones and a little circular device of silver on a chain that gave off a faint ticking sound.

Up above? The Entropy had run its course and the spell concocted by the Eye of Jorel Orok had run out of power. Up above, WAAAAAAGH and Bones could see the tentacle creature flying through the air at a trajectory to plough into the Phondra Woods.

A Kraken. Scars of fire and electricity alike marked it as the Kraken of the north, that which had once been ‘tamed’ by House Mithania of Syl’rosya before going mad. And now, very, very likely to go SPLAT as it dropped from the heavens, all waving tentacles and rage.

Hm. What now? As usual, the Warlord hadn't really thought any of this through.

On the one hand, just not having it go splat over Vers was already pretty good in and of itself. And arguably, having it splatter all over the Phondra Woods might potentially make the surroundings so gross that the uumies decided to stay on their side.

Then again, if the Kraken managed to land without just blowing up, it could probably cause a lot of trouble. They were pretty close to uumie territory now, so maybe that'd be good if it dealt with the uumies.

Unless it advanced south, in which case, the greenskins would have to deal with it. Which might not be ideal, if it smashed its way through the fortifications at Vers, giving the uumies an easier time of things.

Bah! Too much thinking needed for something like this. Basic facts, then: the Eye had summoned this thing, the Warlord had been told the Eye would help him win some war or whatever, maybe this thing could help with that. Probably meant it needed to stay alive, wasn't no use dead. Maybe. Didn't know.

Deep breath then.

"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! " Just blast the thing with one super big heck of a shout to try and slow it down in mid-air and come down at a speed that didn't involve just splattering into giblets. Maybe, hmm... maybe if he did it at an angle he could push it.

East.

Closer to the uumies and that city they had out there. Because why not?

The gravity of the situation above was momentarily forgotten as Bones moved slowly but deliberately through what was now essentially his encampment. He'd found it first, after the uumies had run away. It meant that everything he could pick up and carry was rightfully his, without the need to bully or threaten anyone. It almost felt like cheating. Not that this particular ogre had any issues with that; in that regard he was more progressive than most of his brethren.

With only a single bag resting on his hip, Bones knew he could only bring small things, and that was perfectly okay too. The small treasures were often the best ones. He collected all the coins he could find, not usually carrying any currency but therefore not unaware of the value of gold and silver. Some things even an ogre needed to pay for. Having briefly held it to his large ear, he also pocketed the silver disk on the chain. Of everything he collected, the gems received the most attention. They sparkled in the sunlight, to the delight of their new owner.

Only when he was satisfied with the unexpected spoils did Bones look up again to see where the kraken was located, intending to once more join WAAAAAAAGH at the front line.

For all that the Kraken of Mithania was alive, as it sailed through the air? There was evidently something very wrong with the monstrosity. To both Bones and WAAAAAAGH, they could sense a great mass of Entropic Essence from the Eye of Jorel Orok permeating the creature and ensuring that it held much the same consistency as a bloated several brightening old corpse.

The impact of the Warlord’s shout didn’t so much knock its trajectory as it caused the Kraken to burst in a north-easternly direction.

Bones ransacked as he was wont to do, looting away and collecting what treasures that the Ogre could find. Shinies that ultimately were designed for a Human’s usage rather than an Ogre, but they were wealth in gold and silver even as they bore iconography of a stern male face for the main wearing a crown.

Blood and guts splattered across the forest of Phondra. The carcass of the Kraken exploding across the landscape and leaving slick oil and a frothy white gelatin across trees and brush and what was most certainly any of the remaining Mercenaries of Phondra that had tried to eke out an extra piece of silver from the Merchant Baron Leonard.

Hundreds of meters of woodland? Trees breaking as tentacles and flesh came crashing down and the corpse began to roll, tearing through valleys and obliterating roads before finally coming to a disgusting rest. A fleshy bulwark between the Imperium and the Horde of WAAAAAAAAGH.

OOC;

The 4th (5th?!?) Sherian War has come to a pre-emptive conclusion due to one side effectively starting/renewing the war and then refusing to fight >_>.

WAAAAAAAGH receives 2 Experience to be distributed in skills of his choice relevant to the thread.
Bones receives 2 Experience to be distributed in skills of his choice relevant to the thread.

The Eye of Jorel + Soap-Onna-Stick (sans soap) of Orok has been retrieved from Orckon/Ire.
Bones has received the equivalent of a wealth rating change to Steel due to being a Weirdboy within the Horde with an obvious association with the Warlord. Plus now has gems! They sparkle!

Cheers, Maddyn
