[BR-F25] Paving the Way to Floor 26 [Shadow, the Malevolent]


Recommended Posts

Emotional reactions were always highest when something happens out of nowhere. For example, the smell of burning ozone and stale air striking you in the face where there originally was none. Itzal kept himself composed, but he made a silent prayer in thanks that he couldn't throw up in this game. He turned his attention to the entrance as everyone made their way inside, and followed suit while keeping to the shadows. With night vision he was able to see most of the area, but there was a portion of the darkness which even he couldn't see with his mod. He was fine with this though, and chose to risk standing in that deep, thick darkness as a hiding spot. The darkness obscured things, often making them seem more frightening and dangerous than they really were. Even in a video game, game devs used darkness for that reason. So here in the darkness he would wait. [The irritant gnats have returned, or most of them at least.  And you’ve brought friends!?  How nice.  More pawns into the field, and puppets to be played against each other.] The voice came from every direction, but Itzal wasn't exactly phased by this. The way it sounded was creepy enough, but he could tell it was just a game of intimidation. One he wasn't going to be playing anytime soon. [Come, at me, fools, bring forth your 'just wrath' and 'righteous fury', and all the tantalizing sass that goes with it.  Let’s play for awhile, and see if you're still smiling as your lights go out.] And with that he watched as Orgoth, the minotaur he heard about, rise back up from the ground. It's body clearly possessed by the shadow.

He said nothing as he watched the other players charge forward first. Shield attempted to attack it, which was an odd play for a tank, but completely failed to land a strike against the beast. "You like darkness? I hold no ivory tower or higher pedestal." Itzal didn't quite understand that, but he could tell it was a howl skill, so Raidou was pulling his weight there. Good. Baldur was the third to move in, starting with playing a debuff crystal. Wait, so he had some as well? That would be useful for certain he thought to himself. From what he could tell it was an evasion reduction song. Which meant that Itzal would need to use his accuracy debuff song to keep it's hits from landing too often. He went ahead and pulled that from his battle ready inventory just to be ready when the time came. He then attacked and dealt a rather intense blow to the boss which made him smile. Baldur was a shining example of a front liner, and he wished he could deal as much damage. Sadly however, he was determined to stick with the straight sword. Which SHOULD have an advantage over most weapons due to it's importance in the real world, but no matter. Hopefully his surprise attack would pull it's weight and actually make a difference in his damage...

Kiluia attacked next, once again landing and dealing damage. And after them was Night, who activated another debuff of their own: Incarcerate, before attacking from the shadows as Itzal planned to do, applying status effects. So they chose the trickster mod over the assassin one? Interesting. Itzal knew he had to make his move next. It just so happened that he was on the other side of the field as Night, so the two of them would be attacking Orgoth from two different sides. He rushed forward, launching out of the darkness with a trail of it's mist following close to him. As he ran he activated the accuracy debuff, and then moved to attack. With a flash of his blade he activated Meteor Burst, Charge, and Surprise Attack: Assassin, all at once. He cut as fast and deep as he could, hoping to get a critical hit to maximize his damage as much as he could... However.

When he retreated with evasive maneuvers, he noticed with a crushed spirit that he only dealt a measly two hundred and thirty points of damage. With every possible damage buff the game could possibly provide him, save of course for the wedding ring, he was only able to deal that much?! He knew the cause of it was the weak sword art he was given, but... No, he would NOT be made useless this fight. He had DoTs, he could use them. And he held debuffs. They would get through this fight one way or another.

It was a struggle, really. A struggle to figure out where he belonged. Was he to be on the front, bringing all the damage he could squeeze out of his weapon to bear? Or, was he to hang back? Read the room? Strategize? He could be equally competent in both. Against a brute as massive as the one standing before him, Oscar couldn't imagine that he would need to focus that hard just to hit it. But out of all those assembled, he was among those with the least experience. True, he could carve through spiders like no one's business. He'd even killed a Giant Peep or two in his heyday. But nothing like this. Nothing so important. No fight had ever been so crucial. He put his life on the line every day simply by trying to make it in the godforsaken game. But now everyone's lives were on the line. His, his party's. Hell, even the people who weren't even in the damn fight. He was not ignorant of the gravity of the situation. It weighed heavily on him.

This was further complicated by the fact that he barely knew half of his party. Zandra had been his shadowy benefactor when Oscar had joined the upper echelon. Freyd was quickly becoming one of his best and most trusted allies. The others though? Oscar didn't know them from Joe. Yet, he needed to trust and rely on them all the same - just as they did for him. The pressure weighed on him from all sides, crushing and cracking his psyche. He had never been one to let his nerves get to you but when you're thrust into a life-or-death situation with 23 other people knowing that the lives and futures of thousands - many of which you know personally - hangs in the balance, things just happen.

A storm of emotions raged in his head, chaotic and dark. A black-and-red nebulous mass heavy at the fore - crackling and arcing with shocks to his synapses. Shocks that would then wrack his entire core. His hands were shaking. Perspiration beaded on his forehead. Eyes bulged, darting about the room in search of anything to latch onto. Anything to focus on. Anything to bring him back. 

A brief respite from the chaos was desperately needed.

He closed his eyes. 

Breathed deeply.

And reminded himself of one very important fact:

You know you made a career teaching people how to manage these right?

And with that, a tether. An anchor back to reality. He didn't so much cling to it as he just let it do his job. You won't be any good for anyone if you just sit there like an idiot. Hit the fucker already.

Right. They were in the middle of a fight, after all. Oscar's right hand sliced through the air. With a single motion, his Battle Ready inventory propagated in a small screen. Not obtrusive enough to block his focus, but not small enough to be completely ignored either. He spooled up a skill - Quick Change - and quickly navigated the interface as he rushed into the melee. One of the perks of his ensemble not directly reflecting the equipment he was wearing was the fact that it wasn't readily apparent that he'd even changed gear at all. But, he decided that having some health and energy regeneration was more important than raw stats right now - especially as he'd noticed in his rush that a debuff had been applied. With his change done, all that remained was for him to swing. The blade of his axe took on a violet glow - signaling the activation of his Sword Art. He stopped short before the massive beast and planted his feet. From there, he threw all of his strength into swinging his axe like a baseball bat. The black edge sank deep into Orgoth's thigh before being stopped by the sheer density of the warrior's muscles. Oscar wrenched his axe free and hopped back. Something told him raid bosses had one hell of a counterattack.

Oh. What a massive cow. She thought initially. She had not paid any mind to the echoing warning, but the sheer size of the minotaur caught her of guard. Her newly acquired spear was trembling. It was not from the fact she was afraid but was excited to join the fight on the floor. She watched as her group started their own massive attacks. She watched as her beloved launch himself at the boss and a grin spread upon her lips. Both hands latched onto the steely pole of her spear and she took off realizing she was up to bat now.

“I want steak!” She shouted at Kiluia. She hadn’t eaten minus this food that the feast had provided earlier but she wanted home cooking. With that thought in mind, she wondered if this thing would drop perhaps food for a reward. That served to enhance her attack as she spun the spear into a drill like state. Four separate lunges drilled into the frame of the creature followed up with a thunderous overhead arc swing. She wasn’t going to mill around close to this thing as she had no idea what it would do to them if it caught them.

Little after teams were formed, the impenetrable vail dissipated as in response to the raiders' burning passion. With a slight gesture she confirmed the nametags of her teammates, smirking at the blue knight and the dragoness with whom she was more intimately acquainted. As they entered, she started scanning the room around them for any changes. None so far as she could tell with her Night Vision but she felt that even her mod wasn't enough to pierce through all the darkness around. 
"Of course he won't show his face again..." she muttered, gripping hard onto the sheathed blade she had in hand. Shadow's taunts did little to affect the blonde, instead she directed her attention towards Orgoth. His appearance almost nothing like the hero statue she passed by on her way here.

With a long sigh, she brought forth her weapon and started walking towards the minotaur. Already team 1and a pair from her's, started swinging with little retaliation from the 'boss'. 'Guess we ditched the purification attempt, they all seemed hellbent to put him down.' The lioness stood in front of the minotaur and looked him right in the eye as her familiar made its way next to her. With a loud metallic 'schwing' she drew her sword and brought the saya in a reverse grip. The sound effect would hurt the ears any who had trained with such a weapon, knowing how fake it was, added just for the sake of dramatic effect. She eyed the sheath, the corner of her mouth turning slightly upwards as she knew that it was the best items that allowed her to use a altered form of nitojutsu.

"Face me with all you got Orgoth!" she challenged the giant before her, Kimba's Howl amplifying the intensity as her voice boomed inside the room. "I'll grant you a warrior's death!" she felt it was the least she could do for him. After all, he ended in that state because he held the shadow back and allowed all the scouts to escape. Reminiscing to that day, Ariel's eye narrowed and flashed green as she glanced around for their cowardly foe. "Then I'm coming after you, bug!"

Freyd stood watching as Ariel declared her taunts and the other groups charged ahead.  His red-eyed gaze was locked upon the eyes of the immense minotaur before them, watching the insidious black roiling over them.  He felt the same darkness stir inside him, longing to be one with that which stood before him.  His black-gloved hand gripped and relaxed repeatedly over the hilt of the strange sword in his hands.  It, too, longed for its darkness to be unleashed and rejoin the whole.

"This may have been a bad idea," he whispered to himself, his lips pursing as he struggled to regain full control of his arm.  Had he straddled the line for too long?  Had the toll come due?  Cold swept over him in the form of a memory and his heart stilled and girded against loss.  His hand steadied and jaw set.  Darkness would be joined alright, and torn asunder from within.  Hefting the blade high, Freyd set himself to follow the rest, having chosen his target and timed his delay to let the first wave pass. 

"Persi, if you please.  It's time."

The shadow mongoose's black silhouette emerged from beneath his cowl and scampered down his arm, where its void-like body turned a violet-hued blue akin to a clear night's sky ablaze with an endless field of distant stars.  It was like watching a field of hopes and dreams made manifest.  She stretched herself over and engulfed the dark and light alike, annealing Samael's Pride in something wholly other than the polarized forces at play within. 

A burst of speed propelled him towards the minotaur - their prey - and bit into the beast's torso just below its left arm.  His strike left a glaring gash in its digital mesh.  It was merely one among a growing number, but combined they would eventually fell their foe.  They had to.

"...and so it begins..."

Time seemed to slip by as the bluenette gave a small sigh, his vision being filled with the battlefield before him. Standing against them was their for, Orgoth, whom the first two teams already took to engaging. What seemed like a chaotic scene, after years of experience revealed to him familiar patterns. The frontline battle started like clockwork, something he had witnessed many times before. Eyes locked onto the target, his mind steeled as a metallic breath faintly hung in the air, his exhale reflecting off the surface of his helm, "Now it comes down to the strategists...Shield, Bal, everyone...I'm leaving it up to you..."

"Roc, you're already there right?"

A blue glint hovered overhead as his blue peregrine falcon familiar circled over the battle, already following the Ultramarine Knight's mental command. His Accuracy shot up as the bird-shaped marking appeared just below where his right eye would normally be. Pulling both of his arms back, Calrex leaned his body forward, shifting most of his weight forward while digging the balls of his feet into the ground. A burst of air remained where he was standing as <<Charge>> activated, his heavily armored form propelling across the battlefield. Bright blue light gathered both in and around his right gauntlet, shining brightly before starting to shoot out of the upper opening like a jet turbine.

Rapidly closing the distance to Orgaoth the blue armored player drew his powered arm back, extending his left arm forward to focus his strike. Moments later his <<All Might>> powered hook crashed into the minotaur's face as a single bright red number flew by, the signifier of a critical hit. Pushing back off Calrex backpedaled back into position, readying himself once again, "Heh, sorry Ariel, didn't mean to catch up on aggro that fast."

Amidst the dim and darkened world The Shadow had created, sparks of hope flashed and flickered in the form of various Sword Arts. Although subdued and muted, those colors were the harbinger of the frontlines’ rallying charge. Like fireworks in a cloudy sky, light beat back the darkness as power poured into weapons. Debuffs pierced the shadows, peppering the towering Orgoth as he lifted the axes over his head.

If the minotaur noticed, he gave no indication; he did not so much as swat away the effects before taking a step toward the waiting players. Each move the creature made was jarring, as if his muscles strained painfully with every action. His red eyes rolled violently in his horned head, and a grimace drew taut across his maw even as he turned to the nearest player. The keen edges of his double blades caught the dim light; they made a soft whoosh as they cut the air, and a sickening thwack as they met fabric, then flesh. Then, like a marionette commanded by an unseen hand, Orgoth jerkily drew his weapons back again.

The puppet master’s laughter bounced off the walls, his eerie amusement wrapping the players as efficiently as his cloak of darkness. “Did you really think such cheap tricks could work against me? Clearly, you’ve forgotten just who you’re dealing with.” As Orgoth’s bulk shifted to face yet another victim, the Shadow’s voice came again. “Allow me to remind you.”

Once more, the beast swung his twin axes over his head, then lodged them firmly in the nearby tank’s heavy armor. When no crimson gash was left behind, a flicker of awareness came into Orgoth’s eyes. Though he quickly readied his weapons for another strike, and the recognition was extinguished like a wind-swept flame, its presence was unmistakable. The battle between the minotaur and the players was not the only war being waged.

This was it. It was finally happening. Adrenaline fired through Bahr's veins and into his heart as though multi-point fuel injection into the cylinders of an engine, virtual blood surging in and then through so fast that he could feel it pulsing through all of his extremities. He trembled with anticipation as he experienced the cocktail of hormones, every molecule of his frame tingling with pent up excitement. He'd trained so hard, and so long, for this moment. He'd grinded out his levels, skills, equipment, and technique tirelessly. The ultimate test of his efforts stood before him, and he was incapable of holding himself back from taking the lead the moment he was able.

The gigantic lumbering monster was tearing its axes through the other parties. It was distracted. Bahr saw his mark, and the line he needed to take to get there. He rushed forth, the tepid air encircling the arena protesting his rapid approach by pulling back at his clothes and skin. It wouldn't stop him. Nothing would stop him. This was everything he had ever wanted, all in one place. The danger. The challenge. The excitement. The fear. It was all present. Now he just needed to harness it.

He got there just in time. Leapt forward, planted his boot against the head of one of its gargantuan axes, and sprinted along the length of its haft as it rose the weapon from the ground. He adjusted his balance and pitch in accordance with its movements, feeling the element of control gradually slipping out from beneath him. Just before he lost it entirely, he rocketed from the beast's weapon and sailed through the air, Dawn's Demise igniting in a furious crimson as he spun his frame counterclockwise twice, lined up his shot against Orgoth's neck, and...

Missed.

A puzzling cross of disbelief and horror masked Bahr's visage as he soared past his target, replaying the scenario over and over again in his mind's eye. He was sure he'd timed the jump correctly. He was positive he'd calibrated the trajectory of his attack properly. He'd put everything he could into that attack. So why? Why had he missed?

He landed, spun, then slid until his inertia surrendered to the friction of his boots against the ground some distance away. A guttural growl seethed through his teeth as he hung his head in shame. The rest of the DPS Frontliners had landed their marks without fail. Was he really so inept that he couldn't do the same?

The sands began to fall and the fight began. Within the darkened shadowy catacomb-like battlefield stood the great minotaur that tried to aid the Penguin Rangers, captured and ravaged by The Shadow they had tried to fight but instead unleashed. Macradon brought up his warhorn and made a great effort as the first two parties rushed in before the rest. Engaging in combat with the great minotaur, Macradon would follow behind them, ready to get close to that dual axe wielding bull monster. “ALRIGHT FRONTLINES. THE TIME HAS COME, SHOW CARDINAL YOUR WORTH!” he roared, stuck his banner into the ground and leapt past it to get as close to Orgoth as he could.

With a quick thrust, Macradon held his sword high and proclaimed “I’m known by many as Macradon, and so shall you know. I may have tactically retreated from you once, but now that my fellow frontliners stand with me, I do not fear the dark as I once did before. You might have taken over Orgoth, you might have shunned us away from fighting you initially, but now you will have to face us!” he said and activated his Focused Howl, grabbing as much attention from the Shadow as possible without uttering his title/name.

“We have fought before, the penguins and the tendrils of darkness, but this time we aren’t alone, this time we don’t have to huddle together just to stay safe, this time I’m not hiding behind another human being for them to be my shield. If you want to hit someone, hit me, just like you did before!

Macradon, Commander of the Vanguard, lone member of the Knights of the Blood Oath, hereby renew my oath, like my Vice Commanders before me!

Let my blood be spilled if I cannot complete my task, Macradon, The Silent Butcher, The Scarlet Templar, the Imperial Topaz, the Commander of Vanguard, Second in Command of the Knights of Blood Oath declare that I will provide every fiber of my digital self to protect those that need my protection, to help those that need saving ...“ he said, paused for a short while as he made a mental note of the people he had met, either from saving them from some stupid creatures that were out of their league, or helping the newbies getting some proper equipment to survive this game

“... and to free the people chained to this castle, to free the people from Aincrad!” he said and lowered his guard, taunting the boss in front of them.

1657529536_ChaseDBPDefaultUncertain.png.182258935a3ce01f427e3054040ab912.pngThe first two parties had already been sent off after everybody finished meeting and conversing with one another. That wasn't even that long though- it just broke out as soon as they had all gathered. Taking a deep breath and seeing Bahr run in and Macradon howl to get its attention, Chase turned to Mari with a hopeful smile and gave her a nod as he slid his new blade out of its scabbard. "I'm off, Ma. Back me up.", the blueberry told her and before long, he was dashing right at the boss himself. With how much its health had dropped, he assumed it wouldn't be long before with some good luck, the boss was felled and almost nobody was really hurt. He relied on his stone blade to use its extraordinary effect, but... nothing. He ended up just slashing at the boss with more strength than he thought he had, but still dealing considerably low damage for what he could have done. He quickly backed off to let it steer its attention on the heavily armored tank, exhaling deeply. "Mac, if you need some heat off of you, I'll use my own howl. I can dodge as many hits as I have to."

It was difficult to ascertain what the other party was doing - all Mari knew is that she had to keep her eye on the health off those in her party. She gripped her polearm. This...was how she almost lost Alkor last time , this was how Rebekah died - the players in those groups were selfish, and all were vying for last hit. But this.... This was different. Felt different. Mari trusted those in the other groups. She had faith in them - and somehow...despite everything. She didn't feel scared.

Mari stared up at Orgoth, a towering beast with wisps of shadow eminating off his hulking form - a formidable beast to be sure. Then there was that voice that rang off the walls. Dark, cold, and callous. Despite that, despite everything. Mari didn't feel afraid. She wasn't scared nor spurred forth by any sense of urgency. Was she worried about her fellow players? Yeh. She wasn't completely heartless. But herself? No.

This was the first round of battle for their squad. Mari would attack this round, and if she needed to fall back and heal the second, she would. Mari ran forward - past @Bahr who had fallen back after his miss, Mari glanced over her shoulder at him and gave him a short, sympathetic look before focusing back on her target. She knew all too well what it was like to miss. 

Orgoth had been distracted, and the booming voice around them gave Mari the perfect opening - she followed suit in the footsteps of a man who hated her. And jumped up onto the large axe, teetering as she caught her balance before running up its handle and driving the tip of her shadowed weapon into Orgoth. "Tch.." She ripped it out of his body then thrust it again, and again - quickly in succession between the Boarish Brutes rock hard abs. 

Finally Mari finished off with an overhead swing - and managed to roll away back by her group. 


"Keep hittin' him hard - I'll fall back and heal if we need it next round."

Eyeing her party, she could tell she didn't like most of them too much or trust them. Pinball was the guy that attacked her in the twenty-third boss fight. She wasn't too pleased that he was still around. Macradon, while he may have been one of the higher level players, she remembered that he was from the same group as Hirru. As long as he didn't try to help the boss, she supposed there was no problem. She didn't know the blue-haired boy, but he seemed to be familiar with Mari by giving her a quick remark before setting off.

She shook her head, focusing on the fight instead of her own party. She had forgotten to hide, missing out on extra damage. Her eyes narrowed as she darted forward, streaking across the floor. Violet eyes cast on the bull-man as she past him by, eyes flicking to the walls for a moment where the true enemy's voice echoed from. She changed directions, aiming her attack for her opponent's back side. Several thrusts of her dagger sent splashes of red shards into the air and bringing its life down a bit more. 

'This time... This is the first fight that I am strong enough to take care of myself.'

As Jomei finally snapped back to reality, the rest of the raid party was proceeded forward. The invisible barrier had fallen and it was time to commence the fight against the floor boss. Taking in one last deep breath through his nostrils, Jomei followed behind with his rapier at the ready. Half of the party he had been assigned to were new to him, aside from possibly being there during a previous boss fight. Mac and Mari, on the other hand, Jomei was glad to be fighting alongside them yet again. 

The group ahead of them slowed to a stop, and a voice like a slithering, venomous,  snake crawling into his ears began to speak and taunt the players. Jomei's eyes wandered for the source of the voice, but he could see from the confusion of his comrades that this disembodied voice seemed to speak directly into their minds. The voice, however, took their attention away from their true target for just a moment, before the towering mass rose from a crater before them. Olive eyes widened in surprise as the body of Orgoth brought its axes up in preparation for a battle. 

The first group attacked first, taking out a huge chunk of the minotaur's heath in mere seconds. Jomei watched in awe, his fingers clenching the handle of his rapier, anticipating his chance to participate. Orgoth retaliated, his axes cutting through the air and sending a gust of wind over the players with the amount of force behind it. And with that, it was their turn. 

Jomei's olive eyes flickered for a moment, the image of a crosshair appearing with his pupil in the center, signifying his <<Concentration>> skill had taken effect. He wanted to make sure his first hit as he charged in actually connected. Taking off into a run, Jomei slowly increased his speed until he was sprinting forward. His <<Charge>> kicked in, and the ginger vanished in a blur of green. Leaping from the edge of the crater, Jomei launched forward, his rapier connecting with Orgoth's thigh. Jomei's body began to plummet down the length of the giant's leg, his rapier cutting into the minotaur's flesh at any moment he could get. The moment he hit the ground again, Jomei rushed back to the far end of the crater to avoid any sort of attack from Orgoth.

Entering the boss room, the hairs on Yuki's arm rose covering her skin with goosebumps. Would be hard to admit that she was nervous, but that didn't mean that she wasn't. This wasn't the place to be having doubts though. She had been training for months to make it to this boss fight before it happened. No matter what happened, she would protect everyone that she could. The paladin kept her place in front of her group alongside Morgenstern, who seemed to have no words for her on the way in. That made her a little nervous, but she wouldn't let that bug her either.

Time to get this all started. Orgoth made himself present, as did the shadow who was likely controlling the actions of the beastly minotaur. Yuki would take a deep breath, her auras shining brighter than anything in this space of existence. As she spoke, that light seemed to burn towards Orgoth like a ray of sunlight peaking through the clouds after a storm. "I am you're foe! Just see if you can even scratch me!" The paladin screamed, then turned back to her group. "Attack, I will protect you all!"

As Bahr made his attack, Yuki would step in closer to make sure she could deflect any oncoming attack towards him, likewise for any other members of her party.

The first two parties mobilized faster than he anticipated. This would be the second boss battle that he's been a part of and he didn't want to mess it up. He kept his eyes on the situation, his left hand gripping the hilt of his katana. "The common strategy we have is for the tanks to gather hate..." Crozeph began moving while Mari and her group attacked "... must look for an opening" he tried to look for a spot at Orgoth to take advantage, trusting Yuki to get its attention.

"Attack, I will protect you all!"

That was all he needed to hear. Crozeph can already feel the buffs that he took earlier and now it makes sense when he took a shot from the bottle of cooking oil, his movements were smoother than he expected. Two feet away from Orgoth, Crozeph unsheathed Skadi and landed every slash he could. Never mind the damage just deal it at the boss "Yuki never says things that she won't do" Crozeph muttered to himself.

The fight was finally here. The fight she had been preparing for since the day she left the Town of Beginnings. The thought sparked an indescribable feeling in her chest. Hope? Triumph? Determination? Or was fear? Distress or anxiety? Her heart was pumping full of adrenaline, but because of what? Was it because she finally had a chance to help everyone, or was it the sheer terror she felt emit from that thing. 

Soft lavender eyes gazed up at the towering beast. This was not going to be no easy fight, no, that was for sure. She wasn't even sure she would make it out of here alive. There always was that chance, but she wasn't going to let that stop her from doing her best to take down.

The first two parties moved quickly, chipping away at Orgoth's health in just a few seconds. They got a good bit of damage in before it was the last two parties' turn. Focusing back to her own group,  Cordelia watched as Bahr sped off to land his blow to Orgoth, only to somehow miss and retreat back to safety. "Alright, I suppose I should get going now then," she muttered quietly, shooting a small smile at both Crow and Yuki before she unsheathed Onimaru from its scabbard. Before she prepared to attack, she placed a reassuring hand on Bahr's shoulder and gave it a soft squeeze. She's been down that road many, many, many times, and she knew exactly how it felt. She just hoped he wasn't too disheartened considering that it was a boss fight. 

She took a sharp breath. "Alright, Pacco," she breathed, her eyes locking on to the behemoth in front of her. "Let's go."

As Orgoth was busy handling the fighters in front of him, Cordelia decided to go for the good ol' flank attack - with blinding speed, Cordelia rounded behind the minotaur, her sword strained black glinting in the pale light that illuminated the room. Just as her boots skid to a halt, she forced herself into the air with her katana beside her. Her sword glowed a dim blue as she activated San Ge, though to her surprise, she had coincidentally procced her holy, (for the first time in forever) which left the sword emitting an almost blinding white light. 

Her blade pierced through the back of the beast, the light still being released from the blade whilst it impaled Orgoth. However, she didn't allow herself to stay on his back for too long. Any longer and she'd be probably dead. Detaching Onimaru from his body, Cordelia jumped back down on to the ground and cautiously made her way back to the party.

And so the fight begun. 

Like every other fight he'd participated in, Pinball watched as the front two parties - the vanguard - of the frontlines attacked first. The idea that this raid was much more organized than those that had led to this one once again solidified in Pinball's mind watching the fighters, newcomers and veterans alike, take practiced strike after strike at the boss. Pinball wasn't really sure what the lore was behind the fight, but it looked as though there was some sort of possession going on due to the abnormal way the minotaur jerked around. 

Macradon would lead his party forward with a rallying speech, raising his sword and encouraging its members of the importance and honor to be had participating in the boss fight. There was a lot of self-centered talk in it, too, but Pinball was really only listening with one ear.

It sounded like a lot of roleplay bullshit to him. 

What a loser. 

Pinball would call Zomekko to his side, and he'd be surrounded by that shadow, even deeper than the darkness that surrounded them already. In a puff of smoke, he was gone, but still he watched, waiting for his opportunity.

Beat stared at the Minotaur as it rose from the crater, the heat already beginning to rise from his body from the adrenaline that had begun to pump through his system. He rarely felt nervous or fear during a fight, but there was something monumental about the fight before them. Shield had often talked about how this fight was supposed to be special somehow as it was the last fight before they unlocked the next tier of strength on the frontlines. 

Well, if they are going to throw the kitchen sink at us, now is the time to do it. 

With a new tier of strength, the frontlines only stood to become stronger, so if Kayaba was planning to thin their ranks, this fight would be a good chance to do so. Still, they had prepared well and with a myriad of buffs, Beat's usual smirk rested on his face as his party charged forward. The red aura of his charge skill surrounded him as he closed the distance to the boss in moments, his spear charged and ready to unleash his strongest sword art. 

"Greetings from the frontlines!" He shouted as his form distorted, raining blows into the creature, chipping away at his health bar as his critical effects went off. The black aura from his pendant flowed through his weapon and combined with his holy effect to produce a black and gold shimmer as his attack expired.

Stepping onto the battlefield, his eyes would search into the dark room that awaited him. Laughter reverberated across the walls as the boss began to taunt them. The minotaur, Orgoth, would emerge from the shadows and brandish his twin axes. ' "Hiding behind his toys as always" Jonathan would observe, unsheathing his weapon. The metal hissed as it was revealed, the normally yellow sparks red instead. The Paralyzing effect of his sword was often useless in boss fights, however now the Vampiric effect would endless restore his own health. 

As Orgoth settled into a ready position, the fight would finally begin. Bending his legs, he would push himself off the ground and hurtle towards the foe. Making one clean swipe, he would open a gash at his opponents abdomen. Red shards would flow from this wound, being absorbed into his weapon. 

Light shone from around the former-paladin's body coming from the Pillar fragment. He sheathed his weapon, keeping a watchful eye on the shadows. He wasn't sure if the shadow could still attack while puppeteering Orgoth. He hadn't done it with the dragon, but this was the actual boss fight and was a far different story.

Resounding laughter rang out from the void, echoing in the deepest recesses of their minds.

“YES!  That’s it!  Hit him harder!  Make the mad cow suffer!  See him truly, my friends, how humiliated he is at the very notion of being brought low by the likes of you.  It will make a fitting end, though I think it more sporting to see you carve each other up more first.”

Orgoth’s actions still came in awkward jerks and spurts, but the speed and strength behind them was terrifying to behold.  All that power, and yet he was no more than a plaything to The Shadow.  Its infectious darkness could be seen boiling within his eyes and blood alike, emerging in the form of black smoke from his flaring nostrils as he seethed.

“You think yourselves the bravest and the best that Aincrad has to offer?  Yet you can barely manage to take down this over-aged meat-puppet!  Where’s the one with the hot dog cart?  Maybe he brought a barbeque with him, and we can throw on some nice, thick, juicy steaks.”

The boss’ taunts turned against his own pet, as more and more steel struck home, chipping away at his health.

“See the ones with the orange lamps, Orgoth?  Isn’t it thoughtful of them to have clustered as they have?  I’ll take them next, when you’re gone, and see their talents turned against their fellows once more.  They have the knack, you see, and the taste for their fellows’ blood.  It would be so easy to let their darkness out to play.”  More sinister laughter followed, laced with malevolent and hateful intent.  Each player silently prayed that the monster’s mentions were but bluffs, though one or two might harbour secret desires that such a thing were actually to manifest.  They felt a coldness coiling around and down their spines, as if the dark tendrils of the puppetmaster were slowly slithering inside, just waiting to take hold.  A battery of mockery then boomed in a voice that seemed to be growing deeper and grander with every passing moment, splintering into a dozen thundering and overlapping, cacophonic calls.

 

“Ooh!  An impressive title that counts for nothing, and will stand for nothing when the mantle it sits on falls!”

“A lost child, perhaps?  Desperate for recognition and kinship?  Who would bring such a whelp to the party, and then leave him abandoned in the dark?”

“I like the next one, with the past dripping in blood, who deludes herself that a tint of orange can serve as sufficient cover-up.  Her sins are black enough to match my own.  She thinks to heal others, yet cannot heal herself!”

“A sneaky one, full of malice and bile.  I’d like her, if it wasn’t but a thin veil and paltry glaze to conceal the weakness within.”

“There a touch of infectious madness, in that one.  His bile and blade are vectors for spreading it to others.  He hides, but isn’t sure who he should stab.  A simple answer: everyone, before time dwindles.  Soon, there will be no more targets.”

“Green and orange?  I think that’s one’s a leprechaun, and hits about as well as one without his lucky charms!”

“So much pink, and doubts abundant.  Her strength is but weakness behind a thickened shell of eggs.  What will she do in the moment after she cracks?”

“Oh look, another samurai forgotten in an endless sea of origami copies.  Unremarkable, yet clinging to bright clothing as if it will distinguish him in the dark.”

“That other one’s a bundle of doubts wrapped up with insecurities.  Even the others see no worth in his laziness, cowering behind their bluster, he knows all too well that his every effort leads to failure.  Why bother to try at all?”

“Flashy moves in a blinding red blur and haze, yet without substance.  Poor, impotent fool.”

“Look at the majesties on that one!  Oh, and well done!  A bright little prick of light, so magnificently proud, yet soooo completely unreliable.  All light flickers, little dear, and then ultimately fails.  Soon, yours will surrender itself to ashes along with all the rest.”

“Black and red all over?  It’s a lovely the colour scheme, but about as relevant as the papers it emulates.  He, too, will fade soon enough, along with any hope of victory.”

 

Light dimmed about the room, closing in to crowd the battlefield more tightly and encroaching on the ringing obelisks.   The hanging lamps dimmed, as the air thinned and cooled.  Despite the strength of their opening salvo, the front lines felt suddenly smothered and chilled.  Breathing grew harder as Shadow’s angry bark commanded his hated minion to assault them anew.

“MOOve, flesh-sack!  Keep them busy a while longer.  They’ve already taken the bait and pulled their strength out of position, leaving their kin and homes exposed.”  

Then, just as suddenly, blasting thunder became a subtle lilting tone as Shadow sang himself a twisted little tune intended to drive a dagger of doubt into their brave and boastful hearts to slay the hope that dwelled within.

“Darkness reign and rain away, linger with me while we play. Watch these ‘heroes’, wastes of clay, as I end their final day.”
