[OOC: I just realized I used the word "burst", like, 3 times in a row in my post... that's a very unattractive writing error T_T

@Kei: Thanks! I'll be sure to tell her. She did this totally for free and spent many hours on it, so I am grateful to her and promised to give her all of your guys' feedback. :)

@Arth: Hey, thanks! :D I'm not that great of a creative writer, so I hope that it was okay.]

[OOC: @Arth: Your a fan of Ghirahim?]

@kiya: Ghirahim as in Skyward Sword? I have not played it myself, though from videos he seems like a huge troll. If not, I have no clue what you're talking about. Why do you ask? I'd rather not take up space in the thread, so PM me if you can.

OOC: As a random thing to note, Round 2 is typed up and the whole RP section is over 26 thousand characters according to GameFAQs. All that is left is Round 3 and then wait for the time to come to reveal what I have been working on this week.

Well, this just kept getting better. Renge had awakened his eidolon, and no fight was needed. The Condemner had sent us to another realm just like Syntche and the others, and two new enemies were here. However, Angelus and Asura unleashed a devastating attack, both healing us all and staggering the enemies. It was time to go on the offensive.
“Vincere, if you and Diablos can kill one, target the first one, I will keep the second one busy.” Azra'eil hoped it worked.

Running toward the dark enemy, he dodged an attack and, planting his left leg firmly on the ground, Azra’eil kicked the enemies chin and lifted him up into the air. As he brought his leg down he brought the dull side of his katana up, hitting the lord with it, and threw him up with all his might. Leaping, Azra’eil slashed the enemy twice before twisting and pushing off of him with his feet, land back on the ground. Hopefully this prevented the Dark Lord from attacking anybody while the others finished off the other guy.

Attack/Attack/Attack->Dark Lord D
5280 damage! (with stagger and blindside, launch as well)

[I got distracted yesterday when trying to find what would work as a theme for Vincere and didn't post...anyway...]


(I survived with 16 HP. Yay me. x_x

But now I have full health, so I'm good.)


(Since I predict complete overkill on this particular enemy with all things considered and the likelihood that this enemy doesn't have more HP than the Condemner...)

Reaching an arm forward, Diablos began to draw in the other Dark Lord with an irresistible gravitational pull. Moving forward and planting his feet forward, Vincere lunged his katana forward and impaled the Dark Lord on his blade. Numerous gashes appeared on the Dark Lord as Diablos took the opportunity to break all of its resistance to the upcoming deathblow. The chain coming from the end of the hilt began to rattle as dark energy began to form and spiral around the base of the blade, as slowly cut after cut began to appear across Vincere. "BEGONE!" The energy was unleashed on his enemy, launching it flying as the energy propelled it off of the blade and a short distance.

Staggering a little, he turned his head half-attentively at the remaining Dark Lord. Diablos took that as a cue, the aura of the Gestalt form surging forth in its direction as it began to solidify in to Diablos' upper-half, tearing at the Dark Lord thrice with its clawed hands.

Yuki Roleplay and Battle start
This time, Yuki was hit with two of the creature's attacks. "Oomph..."

However, it wasn't the pain that bothered him: it was the fact that their attacks appeared to have no effect. "This is bad..." he said to his allies. "Physical attacks don't work, and it's doubtful that even using elemental strikes would have an effect."

He remembered that Angil's last attack had some effect. "Angil: Do whatever it is that you did last time. Kyte, try using elemental attacks. I'll see if elemental strikes do anything."

He charged at the creature, his sword bursting into flame as he did so. He made an overhand swing with his blade and then followed it with a diaganol upward swing. The dust in the underground then coalesced around his blade, extinguishing the flames and leaving a makeshift sheath of earth around it. He brought this down on the creature, and then jumped back.

He prayed that these attacks would work. If not, they would be meeting the Goddess far sooner than he wanted to...

Target: Phantom
