Arkata made his way through the crate and found a forward facing shielded view port "it only makes sense" he said as a dark metallic planet came into views huge holes and signs of battle covered its surface
"What has happened here?" Atan asked looking out of the port. "Everywhere we go, it seems chaos has ensued."
"This world was already ruined, before my fleet arrived at least" the lich drew closer to one of the huge missing in the shield worlds surface. Ruined forerunner vessels along with covanent ships were visible.
"If only I had appeared to have died and had been left behind on Resort, or Gao." Catina said.
The lich began to slow down as it entered the empty void, sinking deeper into the inky black "blasted i cannot see" Arkata said glaring around through the various holes
"I unfortunately, will do what I have to to prevent anything like how those two wanted to steal parts of my armor." Catina informed Kaz.
"My associate has little patience for those that would disrespect him. It is a miracle she still lives at all." Kaz told Catina.
He moved to a viewport, and rotated a ring on his eyepiece, attempting to see... well, anything.
The crate suddenly stopped knocking everyone about. Slowly the shields faded.Arkata walked to the entrance and a stepped out thankfully making contact with solid ground. He looked around from what he could tell this was a large empty space.Suddenly in the distance ornamental red lights on a wall began to glow, the light spred to the floor creating a path for the group.Arkata slowly walked forward glancing around at the various screaming noises that could be heard from time to time "what is this?"
Kaz dropped to the ground, examining the path. Taarkus grunted, and glared at Sky.
Alexei readied his shotgun "Im not sure...Atan any ideas?"
As they got closer to glowing wall it began to slide open "Why have you come here?" An artificial sounding echoed through the large room as the glowling lights of a five meter tall figure came into view
"To kill some idiot" Kaz answered.
"To show some ■■■■■ you don't break contracts." Alexei told him as Atan nodded. "And to crush his skull under my foot." Atan added
"The brute sent you, well this time things are different mercenaries" the figure began to step towards the group the red light below the figure illuminating his metallic body
Atan activated his sword as Alexei aimed his shotgun at the figure.
Catina drew her shotgun, seeing it as a better choice than her pistol or machete against this tall robot.
Taarkus took his hammer in one hand, and the axe in the other. Kaz slid between his legs, and climbed onto his back.
A beam of light appeared over the figure and another above the group.A very familiar helmet was visible metal mandibles where present his head seemed to be dwarfed by his huge body the few exposed areas of fleash where covered in wires and tubes that went in and out of his skin, each entry and exit hole had been cleaned of any blood "you should have killed Ryanus" he said the metallic hum echoing through the room once again "but i shall welcome you to my world" he said lifting his floating arms up suddenly a mass of glowing red lights appeared far below the group on each side of the path revealing that the areas just off the path constited of chasms. "You can see the beautiful symphony i have created" he said as the screams began loader and the red lights began to move faster
"You got any of that for us?" Kaz inquired.
"Only my children get such a honor" the heavily modified Malcus replied
