“Sure, sounds easy enough.” Mark said semi-sarcastically as another attack cane towards them.
The attack got absorbed by the shield that was protecting them as Magnus glared at them. “Now is not the time to be playing sarcastic.” He said to Mark. “Didn’t you saw it?” He asked. “How he in the beginning summoned five blades and made them clash against one another? Those blades are for their each embodiment of the multiversonal energies.” He said.
“For Primordial energy there is Umbra’s Bane for Xalnergy is Blackedge and there are three more.” Magnus told him. “Perhaps if we get them all together, we may stand a chance against him. He didn’t scatter them across this field for no reason this is the Architect we’re talking about. He is probably planning something and we need to act quickly.”
“Yes,” Axiom manages to mutter. “Yes.”
He stretches his arms, the wave of particles surging out to meet the vortex. The blades cut and stab, and slowly start to force past the particles.
Axiom gasps, the muscles on his arms straining violently to maintain the particles. More surge out from the “angel’s” form, building up the wall as the blades cut deeper. The metahuman lets out another sound, a roar of two voices.
“CREATOR YOU SAY YOU ARE, BUT CONSUMED WITH DESTRUCTION.”
“YOUR MANDATE CANNOT PASS.”
Something rises above Axiom, something shining bright and cold and hideous. Something with the colors of a thousand dying stars all turned hollow.
Something that cannot exist, and yet does.
A string of glimmering un-matter rises, and then another and another. More rise, until a whole figure stands, hovering in mid-air a foot behind his left shoulder.
In between the flickering, one could almost see something like a person.
Luxatium directs it in a different direction with Ignotium energy. "Omniscient, maybe. Blinded by emotion, definitely. " He says calmly. "Maybe you would like to discuss this over some tea like civilized people. " Luxatium continues such taunts.
Dr. X began to intensify his efforts to call on, to invite, The Energies to help them.
“You asked what power we have and I have one answer:” He said, Crimson gathering around him from within himself, “Each other.”
“Those who stand alone never achieve anything but those who stand together stand the tallest.” He said to The Architect.
The Architect did not even rebut Luxatium’s statements. He just attacked him blindly and viciously, roaring.
“That’s a good idea and all, but we first need an opening to be able to recover these blades.” Mark said to Magnus.
Magnus glanced at Mark. “I will be your opening.” He said.
“How exactly?” Asked Mark, telling out ofthe way to dodge as another of the Architect’s attacks.
“I’ll keep him preoccupied.” Magnus said. “It will give you enough time to get at least one of the blades.”
“Got it!” Mark said, nodding confidently.
At that moment, The Architect attempted to surround Magnus with his shadows and stab at him with shadow blades
“Ready for round two, Architect?” Magnus asked as he it came to nis notice that shadows were surrounding him, an easy solution he rose his hand up towards the ceiling and he opened his palm from it came a large bright light that burnt all of the shadows.
The Architect began swirling up around Magnus’ field, in a sort-of “Vortex”.
As Magnus held up his hand with his palm spread out, the light would turn into a purple dark color, using the void for his next move as he flew up as the Architect was swirling around him like a vortex before he would counter that move with a nova bomb, which was a destructive blast that came from the void itself.
The Architect absorbed the blast into himself, as the swirling vortex of blackness took on the form of an enormous beast. Roaring, the beast charged head-on at Magnus.
Magnus took Chaosbreaker and held it up as it he summoned the force of the thunder and lightning and redirected the burning hot thunder and lightning at the beast.
The Architect formed a giant black hammer from his substance, blocking Magnus’ attack as he brought it down on him.
Mark eventually saw Umbra’s Bane lying on the ground nearby. He scrambled for it, but found himself stopped by The Architect.
“GIVE UP. I KNOW ALL YOUR GREATEST FEARS. ALL YOUR INSECURITIES.” The Architect said, as he shapeshifted into a dark version of The Gamemaster. As Mark fought the dark doppelganger, he took on the form of his other greatest arch-enemies: Savager, Plague Knight, Gamemark…
“Uh, a little help here!” Mark called pit to the others as he struggled.
Luxatium puts a light barrier around Mark. He then fires needles of light at the Architect.
The Architect roared at Luxatium, diverting his attention from Mark and scampering towards Luxatium instead, as the light needles impacted him. He lunged Luxatium, attempting to gulp him whole.
Luxatium launches into the sky, sending more solidified light crashing down. "For an all knowing being you seem to be making quite a few mistakes. " he says under his breath.
Dr. X tried to reach out to help Mark and the others.
“They’re only illusions!” He called, “They’re only as real as you let them be.”
