WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH


[Khadran] Freakin' BOOM! [Shei]

Summer, Era XXIII Post Fractum

This explode-y stuff was pretty loud, and it burned hot, and it made some pretty big booms. The Warlord could probably do a lot of stuff with it! Like... explode-y... stuff. Yeah. To make the enemies explode. Or at least hurt them a bunch. Or at least spook them. The stuff could be scary to people who didn't know what it was.

Yeah. That seemed like a good idea. Perhaps they could start off with a simple throwing device, something that the boyz could toss into the ranks of the enemies in order to sow discord and terror among them. A wee little explode-y noisemaker thing.

Right then! Experiments started simple. Get some wood, make a nice hollow sphere, the walls rather thin. Pour in some explode-y powder. Make a little hole for the wick. Find a nice open space, light it, toss it. See what happened!

Luckily, finding an open space in the wide plains flanking the Khadran mountains was of little difficulty.

The suns shone bright in the sky.

It was not light then, that flashed in the warlord’s vision as his barrels went over the foothills to crash on the ground below, but flames and smoke.

It was too weak to be termed a cataclysm, but it had seared the grass with blackness. What nature’s touch had once covered with green was now rendered into nothing more but a streak of pitch ash.



OOC - Mod plan approved. Please describe in your next post the nature/quantity of your retinue, as well as any items you have with you.

Warlord was just on his own at the moment, carrying with him his trusty axe (as was per usual), covered in his dreadnought armor (in case anything went boom), and... well, that was it. Yeah.

First test? Meh. No booms. Just sort of sputtering flames. How to add a bit more pizzazz to that?

He did have a recipe for a "boom bomb" of sorts, but that one had been derived from plants and stuff, not the boom powder they had now. It generated a big noise but there was no real 'explosive' component to it. So, uh... maybe they could be combined? Take the plant gunk that was the basis of the 'boom bomb', mix it up with black powder. Just really mix it all up.

Stuff it into a thing and toss the ball and see what happened.

Given enough lifetimes, a room of monkeys with the Herald’s printing press would eventually write the Holy Triance.

Then again, considering the number of inconsistencies in that text, it quite possibly had been written in that fashion.

Similarly, orkish engineering – if one so desired to deem the rather haphazard approach to creation held by our green-skinned hero – would eventually happen upon the answer. Often in quite unexpected and lethal ways.

Luckily, dear reader, a lifetime was not needed. For upon WAAAAAAAGH’s second attempt, a satisfying explosion followed. Operationalizing and duplicating the results would, again, be a matter of time, but the key combination had been identified.

Time, however, was something not in great abundance that brightening.

The mountains peered down, and the skies had darkened as he worked.

It was too early for the evening. Both of the twin suns still floated in the firmament.

And yet, the skies darkened.

Great clouds had gathered, and on them, the chill wind of something entirely unnatural to this area.

He felt it in his bones – something was coming. Something powerful, something malevolent.

And he was running.

Out.

Of.

Time.

Neat!

Hey, things were happening.

Hm. Mmm.

Did the Warlord need to poop? Nah, that wasn't it. Oh, it was getting dark. Storm, maybe? No point in continuing the experiments, then. Time to go on home, then. So the orc made to do that.
