  3. Illusion III: Little Trouble in Neo-Tokyo

    The third Illusion Game, hosted by The Silver Paladin.

    Science... One of humanity's most proud achievements. It has brought us almost everything our lives use. Virtual Reality, cellphones, military equipment, computers, medicine, you name it. In the right hands, Science can be productive, in the wrong ones, Science can cause mass chaos.

    In the year 2019, a nuclear weapon's detonation caused mass hysteria, and caused a global nuclear war. Corporations saw the weaknesses of nations, and took over the nations. Japan came out stronger than ever, and built the biggest city known to man. The weapon's detonation woke up powers in some people, and the government began to test these, and the United Nations was notified of these, and allowed the testing of these Psychics.

    When Anti-government sentiment began springing up in Neo-Tokyo, the United Nations formed an organization to deal with the anti-government forces that have cropped up. These forces would come against Corporation forces as well, a force that had been trying. Meanwhile, using science, the Neo-Tokyo Corporations have drawn people from the Multiverse, and captured them. Using their power to give ultimate power to the Emperor of Japan. This closes off the minds of the people who crossed the bridge, and drains their power. The corporations give them new Identities and histories, and sends them out into the city to do what they will.

    You are one of these people. Welcome, to Neo-Tokyo. Enjoy your stay.

  4. Kidnappable?: Yeah, for the most part. But I prefer to be in no more than 4 Rps at a time so I can focus all my posting energy and time on em. So I may refuse. :P

    Playing Habits: I check Iwaku a lot but I may be moving soon and whatnot, so I may lose internet access for a while. I'll inform any GMs about it though.

    Gender You Prefer Playing: Male, but I can do both just fine.

    Favorite Genres: Fantasy, sci-fi, post apocalyptic, parody.

    Genre You DON'T Like: Not big on modern RPs, not a fan of Mass RPs due to past experiences. I may make exceptions though if an RP is particularly interesting. I will NEVER get involved with anything like yaoi or furry FYI, those I do not make exceptions with. Also not too keen on perverse RPs.

    Playing Style: I am in the middle between passive and aggressive. But I prefer to plan things out with my fellow RPers so I don't mess them up. Although I do keep plot twists under wraps. I believe planning things out helps make for better posts so I do it often.

    Plot Candies: Plot twists[well executed ones, not failed ones], epic battles, good pacing. Mechs are also very appealing to me.

    Character Stereotypes: Hot blooded heroes or heroines, pure evil villains, cold hearted characters, anti-villains.

    Character No-Gos: Hopeless Emo type characters, sympathetic villains, know it-alls, Mary sues, self insertion, etc.

    Random Notes: ICSYL2 FTW! My favorite RP here at Iwaku.

    Scene Sample: Coming soon.

    Iwaku Roleplays I'm currently in:

    Current RPs:

    Shintaion Resistance: Monsoon & Ramia

    Versimo: Art Jones

    Finished RPs:

    ICSYL 1: Kraw Zieg

    ICSYL 2: Neil Dia

  5. Kidnappable?: Invite me anytime! I might not always be able to play, but I'm happy to check out new roleplays!

    I am Seeking: Both one[x]one roleplays and group roleplays.

    Playing Habits: I can be a daily poster. But on weekends I am usually offline running errands or hanging out with the family, so don't expect posts then.

    Gender You Prefer Playing: Female. I can play males as secondary NPCs, but I prefer my lead character as female.

    Favorite Genres: I love playing a little bit of everything and trying out all kinds of different genre! But my favorite usually leans towards Generic Fantasy, Space Saga Sci-fi or Modern Mystery Crime Drama.

    Genre You DON'T Like: Mecha, Furry (without human characters), pure Yaoi/Yuri, Pokemon/Other battle monsters or card game bases, or roleplays based on fight scenes or battle tournaments.

    Playing Style: Aggressive. I've got ideas or I can make stuff up on the spot. I WILL direct the plot and makes things happen. I play more passively in someone else's game so I don't step on any toes. I am very very flexible between passive and aggressive playing when I get comfortable with a partner!

    Plot Candies: Give me a love interest and I'm yours. I don't need/want it to be the focus of the whole plot, but a love interest is pretty much a Scoobysnack for Dianas. >:] Even if it takes forever to build up to it. I love the process of building a relationship between characters. I really like there to be a good Action and Drama in the plot! Putting the characters through some massive danger and developing a story!

    Character Stereotypes: The nice niave girl. The princess. "That girl who gets kidnapped." Basically, the powerless/weak one that other characters must protect and worry about. One of my favorites to play is that Mean/Bitchy/Badass/Distant character that has to learn to connect with others. I like that process. I also enjoy playing "insane" or quirky characters that seem like they're completely senile but seem to have a method or reason behind all that madness.

    Character No-Gos: I really don't like to play male characters as my primary, and I try to avoid it unless I have a specific idea. Again, I don't do yaoi/yuri as my main character, animals, pokemon, robots. I prefer playing characters that don't use magic, but it's not a total no-go. I HATE HIJACKING. I don't like to do it to others, and I don't like people doing it to me. I want to play my character myself, not have someone else do it.

    Random Notes: I am always willing to throw in an arsenal of NPCs or secondary characters to help fill out a storyline or plot. You can count on me to help make things happen when necessary. Just say "Diana, do this." >:] Sometimes I have issues with partners that are too passive in their playing styles and don't add anything to the scene or help progress the roleplay. I don't want to be talking to myself in a roleplay, I want to interact with characters and environments. I'll get turned off to a roleplay really quick if things get too pretentious or nit-picky about details and perfectness. I'm in it for the fun, baby. >:D

    SAMPLE SCENE: From the Hunted roleplay.
    Selene's Post (open)
    I'm so glad that's over.

    It had been her last day at work. She had only been working at the clothing retail store for a few months before the managers decided to close the place down. Who knew how much work was involved in packing up all that merchandise and demolishing the insides of the store? Selene had been stuck with twelve hour days for a couple weeks now, but finally she was leaving the store for the last time.

    Night had already fallen, leaving a pale red haze far in the distance where the sun had set. Stars were starting to twinkle in to view and the moon was a crooked crescent in the sky. It's a shame she hadn't managed to save up enough cash to get the car she needed. Walking home after long days was rough. On the bright side, she had been staying with a very nice old couple. She would eat, sleep the weekend away and then start the slow annoying process of looking for a new job.

    Or a new city to live.

    Selene glanced around warily as she crossed the street and started down a sidewalk. Maybe she was just being paranoid. There was always that feeling that someone was watching. Or following. Even now as she turned around to walk backwards for a moment, there wasn't anyone there. Years after.. and she still didn't feel safe.

    As she turned around, paranoia was justified! There was someone standing right there and she nearly ran in to them.

    "Hello Selene."

    She staggered backwards, turning on a heel in a fraction of a moment to switch direction and dart off the sidewalk to run through the grass. All the while fumbling in to her jacket for the small handgun she had hidden. She could hear the footsteps hitting fallen leaves behind her, as she turned around the corner of an empty house and squeezed between the wooden doors of the backyard fence. Once inside she slid under an overgrown bush trying to catch her breath and load bullets in to the gun.

    Kidnappable?: sure why not!
    Playing Habits: eh depends on the day and what's going on in my daily life. While at school it may or may not be sporadic but I try to post when I can ^^
    Gender You Prefer Playing: I've played both so either or but I do tend to lean toward females more but males are fun too
    Favorite Genres: don't really have a favorite. I'll try anything once if it captures my attention
    Genre You DON'T Like: eh haven't found one i've really hated or not liked..if i'm not interested i just won't join xP
    Playing Style: little of both I guess
    Plot Candies: excitement! I don't know haha random twists that give my character something to do and such. I don't like to start my character right int he action with everyone all the time so sometimes I end up rping by myself for a while so when something massive happens that forces everyone to interact somehow whether it's nearby or at a distance I enjoy it ^^
    Character Stereotypes: Independent sarcastic woman with a hidden softer side (if anyone says tsundere I will end them!!! D:< ) or just crazy individual with some deep psychological problems
    Character No-Gos: well I've played them before but the super cute extremely naive girly girl can't do anything for herself character. Though at the same time they can be sooo a musing to put in certain situations (:< (yes i'm evil)
    Random Notes: I'm good at bringing in random NPC's to move plot along or get my character interacted more with the main plot/other characters. Again I don't like just plopping them in the middle of everything unless it's necessary.

  7. Kidnappable?: So long as I can be distant if I need to be.
    Playing Habits: Pretty much get on as much as I can, if found I'm rather impatient with other peoples posting habits - but I keep that to myself when I feel that gnawing feeling.
    Gender You Prefer Playing: I think I can play either sex rather well. I favor women of late, though.
    Favorite Genres: my biggest like would be fantasy. Second is Romance. If it isn't glaringly generic, I enjoy a good sci-fi as well.
    Genre You DON'T Like: Yaoi/Furry and anything like these, also if it's big on modern religions. I'm not a fan of religion.
    Playing Style: I'm actually rather passive poster. I tend to let other people take charge.
    Plot Candies: Romance, kidnapping, swords and magic.
    Character Stereotypes: Man With Tragic Past, the gritty-badass girl who stabbages people.
    Character No-Gos: Gunslingers and Softies
    Random Notes: STICKY SITUATIONS. and not the dirty kind.
    Scene Sample: OPTIONAL. Otomo Kisei watched as a man floated unsteadily to the ground. The young student wasn't close enough to see the outcome, but he assumed that the floatation was just a figment of the distance between the two men.

    Why in the hell would a man jump out of a second story window.
    Kisei's family was no stranger to drama, and on that family instinct he continued on: Perhaps that woman's husband came home?

    Of course, it was always in his family's best interest if he kept out of people's home life, even if a man had fallen out of a second story window. The 20 year old hadn't stepped thrice into the threshold of the alleyway when he suddenly found himself in the dust, glasses scrapping across the ground.

    Scene Sample:
    sample (open)
    I feel I must explain this odd trend of mine, often the most awesome character that, in my opinion at least, I've created I have frequently been unable to name, and so a friend of mine has always, for expediency reasons named them after me, this is one such character, an alcoholic, womanizer, brigand, and one of the most powerful pyromancers to walk the earth.

    Steve stood there, his back to the bar, as three brutish looking thugs stared at him, intent on easy prey. Such was not the case, the fools had no idea what they stood against.

    He was a slender man, and tall, his physique obscured by heavy red robes. an almost stereotypical red mage's hat rested on his charcoal hair, his matching beard went past his collar and a pair of Orange eyes smoldered from beneath the brim of his hat.

    at the instant the thugs charged two were immediately reduced to ash and the third hurled back with tremendous force, 3rd degree burs covered the majority of his body. More thugs charged in, some from outside the bar, some from within. All suffered the same consequence, Immolation, burnt bodies were hurled into tables, chairs, through windows, and one even found himself hainging from the chandelier. The mage then walked out of the bar after paying his tab, and reparations for damaged furniture he then flipped a gold coin into the blouse of the rather chesty barmaid and winked at her before walking out into the night air. his body seemed to fade into smoke as the guards arrived to investigate the scene.

    Genre You DON'T Like: Modern?((Usually))
    Playing Style: A bit of both, I suppose.
    Plot Candies: A really BAD bad guy. Mindfuck is always great, IF they can back it up. I also like to see more personal relationships in an RP.

    Playing Habits: I have a reputation as an unreliable poster who has a tendancy to up and vanish. But I'm working on it.
    Gender You Prefer Playing: Male. I can't do reliable women, and if I tried, they'd probably turn out like Revy from Black Lagoon, or the Major from Ghost in the Shell.
    Favorite Genres: Sci-fi, Fantasy, Mecha, Magic anything
    Genre You DON'T Like: Romance, Magical Girl, Yaoi, Furry, Vampires (ala Twilight, I'll do some World of Darkness Vampire Hunting, though).
    Playing Style: I'm a switch (haha), but I lean towards Aggressive.
    Plot Candies: Guns, mecha, swords.
    Character Stereotypes: "The Super Bum." A tough-guy with a devil may care attitude, who knows how to kick ass and sits back and chills in the face of danger. Ex: Roy Fokker (Macross), Kou Hiko (Houshin Engi), Gourry Gabriev (Slayers), Ken (Street Fighter II), Han Solo (Star Wars), Sanosuke (Rurouni Kenshin), and Dante (Devil May Cry). I think you get the idea-- the "relaxed, tough-guy/scoundrel."
    Character No-Gos: Wussy-boys. The Ikari Shinji-type. The "has no testicular fortitude to face what needs to be done" type. That sort.

  16. Kidnappable?: Mostly, yes.

    Playing Habits: I believe I can check in with this place everyday and may be able to make a post a day.

    Gender You Prefer Playing: Male

    Favorite Genres: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Modern, Magical, Horror, Adventure, Post-Apocalyptic, Urban-Fantasy, new to Space Pirates, maybe some kind of heist stuff.

    Genre You DON'T Like: Not good at romantic stuff.

    Playing Style: Mostly passive

    Plot Candies: Comedy makes me laugh. Adventure is what I'm looking for. I like the idea of forcing unlikely or diverse kinds of characters to have an adventure together. Randomly started things are great. Warped worlds.

    Character Stereotypes: Depends on my mood. Lately I've been in a Man With A Tragic Past vibe. Mostly though: man of few words. Basic super powers that I like to use are super strength and emotionaly triggered catastrophicness. Still trying to find what works best for me. I like to play crazy guys sometimes.

    Character No-Gos: Don't do gays

    Random Notes: A lot of times I am not decisive so I may be more comfortable throwing characters together and deciding finer detail as we progress . Not skilled at keeping role plays afloat. Emotion is good. I am willing to sacrifice my character if it will be able to sustain the game, and I'm a rookie.

    Scene Sample: Guy walks into a bar. Guy says "Ow." Man watching Guy says "Why'd you do that?" Man says "Because I'm in a joke." Man watching says "That sucks." Guy says "Yeah it does." THE END.

  17. Kidnappable?: Mostly yes. I would have to see the plot first before deciding.
    Playing Habits: During the summer months, I tend to be more active and can post anywhere from three times a week to once a day. However, I cannot guarantee more than one or two posts a week during the school year.
    Gender I Prefer Playing: Female. I'm willing to NPC males, but I don't like being a male character as my main.
    Favorite Genres: Fantasy, mystery, suspense, slice-of-life/realistic.
    Genres I DON'T Like: Mature roleplays and excessively gory role plays.
    Playing Style: Mostly passive except for when I'm the owner of the RP. I may do a few things here and there, but don't expect my characters to do something that'll make a plot twist without me consulting the GM or other players who are more involved in the plot.
    Plot Candies: Boarding-Schools, Old mansions, Magic, and Music/Dancing/Clubs, just to name a few.
    Character Types I Typically Play: The misunderstood pretty girl, the snoody girl forced to get dirty, the mentally-challenged girl who just wants to help, the introverted day-dreamer who keeps her opinions to herself, and the pretty girl that secretly does very bad things when nobody's looking.
    Character No-Gos: I won't play as characters that are loud and bold, bad-ass gunslingers, narcissistic super-villains, or a prostitute.
    Random Notes: I can sometimes have activity slumps and then suddenly become active again.
    As of the eleventh of November, 2010, I am trying to become more active again. School's been kickin' me in the butt but I think I can manage to post during the weekends.
    Scene Sample:
    From Kazeyama:
    And so Amelia's eyes continued to drift along. She was pretty zoned out until Aisha appeared. There's something, I don't know what, I just don't like it, Amelia referred to Aisha as she placed her hands on her hips and smiled. What is she trying to be? A temptress? Amelia wondered as the clumsy girl's sister began to speak to the group gathered near Kenta.

    "hey guys, how was lunch?" Aisha asked the others.

    Amelia made brief eye contact with the girl. Honestly, her blue eyes could've been stating anything, but what she had meant to give was a questioning look. Was there really any point to that question? I mean, I guess it's a social obligation, but . . . what's the point? Amelia thought as her eyes drifted off into more pondering thought. Eventually, her mind returned back to reality as she noticed in the distance the clumsy girl and the very tall boy. Hm? Amelia thought as she looked at the two. I would say something, but it would come out as mean. She needs to calm down.

  18. Kidnappable?: If you think I might enjoy your game, sure, why the hell not.
    Playing Habits: There's numerous factors. Such as when my muse is actually being reasonable or when she's off sulking in a bar, or if I have a shit-ton of deadlines looming. Or if I'm drinking a lot.
    Gender You Prefer Playing: Dudes.
    Favorite Genres: Horror (In all it's varieties), Sci-Fi, Dark Fantasy, Cyberpunk (hell, -punks in all their forms are awesome), Modern with Supernatural/Fantasy twists
    Genre You DON'T Like: High Fantasy, Excessively Optimistic and Cheery stuff (general Grumpy rule; NEEDS MOAR GRIM-DARK), and stay the fuck away from me with any furry stuff; that's really not my thing.
    Playing Style: Generally, I'm happy to let the plot of a story unfold if it has one. I'm not one for pulling game-breaker shit on people, either, so if I do go aggro I'll let you know first and square any plans I may have with you.
    Plot Candies: Gritty settings, cyberpunk (or any other -punks, that said), atmospheric horror settings, Cthulhu Mythos-related games
    Character Stereotypes: They will monologue. Without fail. If you don't like it, I recommend not inviting me, because it's just how I prefer to write. Aside from this, my characters tend to be villains with a human streak, substance-abusers, Rorschach-esque anti-heroes, grim bastards and the occassional serial killer should the mood take me. Not to say that I can't do anything else, however. I love a challenge.
    Character No-Gos: Happy, bubbly, over-cheery characters, characters who's immediate reaction to seeing scary shit is to curl up in a corner/cupboard/ball and scream, and villains who are villainous for no bloody good reason.
    Random Notes: I've not got a problem with making a post particularly unpleasent, gritty or gruesome should the story call for it. If you do, let me know.

    Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, that's all. Quickly, though; I don't fancy getting caught by the guys chasing me.

    Turn. Spit blood. Stagger a little. Keep moving.

    Just gotta keep moving. Nothing to it.

    Charge up stairs, down hallways. I barely notice my surroundings; the pain's kinda obscuring it all. The cracked ribs grate, which is really, really not good. I shouldn't be straining my body in such a ridiculous manner, but I'll be damned if my last act is to get killed running away from a bunch of fucking nutters through a castle.

    Spit blood again, cough uncontrollably, continue forcing legs forward.

    I'm not dying here, not now. I've got a job to do, after all, and I'll see to it that it's done.

    Might wanna get my ribs fixed first, though.

    Great, Grant, well done. Joking to yourself will totally help the situation.

    Shoulder my way through doors, continue running. My pace is beginning to slip; I can only force my body to do so much. The voices behind me are growing steadily louder, closer. At least these guys don't have guns; I'd be fucked if they had guns.

    Burst onto the roof, head straight for the remaining transport ship. No sign of Uriel or Sakura, which is really very not good. A few of the remaining Shapeshifters guard the ship, looking at me with fear and confusion in their eyes. Around us, the town is ripped apart; nothing's gonna survive in this place for much longer.
    “You okay, Doc?” one of the Shapeshifters asks as I lean against the side of the ship, breathing heavily.
    “I'll live,” I reply quickly, “Now get your guns on that doorway; they're coming.”
    “No need,” the leader of the group states, “We're about to take off--”
    “Not a fuckin' chance,” I interrupt, “There's still people on the way, and we ain't leaving them to die. We hold 'till the last minute.”
    “You're not the one in charge, Doctor. Now get in the transport--”

    Snarling, barely able to see from the pain, I manage to dart forwards and jam the barrel of my handgun into the man's mouth.
    “Don't tell me what to do, you little shit-poke. I said we hold. 'Till. The. Last. Fucking. Minute.” I look over at the Shapeshifters, who are all half-beginning to aim their weapons at me. “Don't point those fuckin' things at me, you idiots! Get them on the door! There's survivors on the way, and we're waiting for them!” The 'Shifters exchange looks, and with a sigh, level their weapons at the door I came through.

    Who says I don't have very good people skills?

  19. Kidnappable?: Sure! Feel free to message me any time, and I'll have a think about whether and how I can contribute to your RP.
    Playing Habits: This is my main limitation; due to long work hours and other responsibilities, I might not be available for more than one or two RPs at a time, for a few hours a week. I'll probably be checking the board every couple of days or so as opposed to daily/multiple times a day, unless I'm on vacation or it's a weekend.
    Gender You Prefer Playing: Mostly male, I think.
    Favorite Genres: Fantasy, sci-fi. Things with a romantic flavor are cool, but not a purely romantic emphasis. Open to anthro themes when it's not the main focus and not expressed in an obsessive manner.
    Genre You DON'T Like: Not too interested in the horror genre, or in modern settings for now.
    Playing Style: As a relative newb to RP, I'll probably take a passive approach for the time being. Please provide guidance, constructive criticism and assistance whenever and wherever you see fit! I crave it!
    Plot Candies: I enjoy a certain epic quality to RP - saving the world one post at a time. Progress towards a goal, yeah? Imperfect characters with significant flaws are a plus. I like there to be challenging obstacles in the way of advancement. Guidance and unifying vision from the GM or other leading characters, as opposed to a chaotic free for all.
    Character Stereotypes: Quiet, thoughtful types. And guys that like guys, in one way or another. But I'm trying to branch out and diversify from these. Also, more generically, I think my characters tend towards the "lawful" side of things--they like playing within the bounds of whatever the current world-system is, and don't cause trouble or rabble-rouse. And they may in fact be the type to resist change, for better or for worse.
    Character No-Gos: Magical angel girls? I dunno, lots of things. I stay away from playing very feminine characters, I think. I don't do hyperactive, zany, boisterous types that often, either. Also, I tend to play either good-aligned or perhaps neutral/self-serving characters. Pure, unmitigated evil just isn't in my system. And I lash out at the sight of chaos and destabilizing influences in life, being drawn to peace and order of one kind or another... though I may give such concepts (
    destruction, chaos, decay, evil) a shot sometime.
    Random Notes: I am nice! I will try my best to fit in and contribute to the story in a constructive, yet non-obtrusive way!
    Oh, and an important disclaimer--I have a bad habit of obsessively poring over each sentence I write, editing and re-editing over and over, sometimes adding detail and tightening sentence structure, but at the expense of actually adding any more action or plot development. Don't be surprised if pretty much all of my posts have edit marks at the bottom, as I come back to them, add to them and tweak them day after day. That is to say, my posts probably tend to be less numerous than other peoples', and a bit shorter than average, but denser in content matter and writing style. I have a tendency to use long sentences and unnecessarily big words, habits which I am working to ameliorate. This is just my style.
    Scene Sample: I'll have to come back to this... maybe drop something in once I've posted in some RP threads.
    Iwaku Roleplays I'm In: Just joined Pantheon - Prometheus' Will, and can't wait for it to get started.

  20. Kidnappable?: I'm always available for some writing shenanigans!
    Playing Habits: I can always get a post once a week if not more.
    Gender You Prefer Playing: I tend to stick with male characters. I can't write women to save my life.
    Favorite Genres: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Modern, and just about anything else so long as it's not that mushy anime love crap.
    Genre You DON'T Like: Mushy anime love crap as mentioned above.
    Playing Style:
    Plot Candies: Romance, action, regret, just about anything tickles my fancy... except that mushy anime love crap. >: (
    Character Stereotypes: The man with a tragic past, and is running from dealing with it, the man with power, but has no real regard for it's use, or idea for how to truly control it, the man who doesn't give a damn about anything other than his needs, desires, or loved ones, and the cliche suspicious enigmatic man. I do however have other talents.
    Character No-Gos: I don't really have one that I won't do... unless it ties in with that mushy anime love crap. FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU
    Random Notes: I have a tendancy to take cliche characters, and give them an odd twist. Like a completely controdicting twist.
    Scene Sample:
    sample (open)

    Seeing the Mage call to life a spell of great power, Zagara regained his senses, and saw the immediate danger that flew in a flock towards him. The spell he should have casted failed to be called to his mind, and his mind, and arms worked with instinct. Slowly he circled his arms in wide paths. The air around him lit ablaze, and sucked the oxygen from the air around him leaving it blurry. The hall cracked with raw magic as it seemed to pour straight into Zagara setting his eyes aflame. Their light radiated inside the hall for a moment blinding the occupants...


    Zagara screamed hauntingly, and then slammed his palms together creating a spark of fire. The spark ignited on the oxygen, and spiraled forward into the flaming projectiles burning their fire with more fire. The vortex of flame seemed a being of absolute rage as it pulverized the eagles into ash, and continued forward.

    [size=+2]"MAGI!"[/size] Zagara yelled once more, and pushed his hands forward adding to the speed, and power of his spell. As the spiraling beam of flame neared Steve he could see faces moving in between it. Five faces... a young human woman, an elf male, two small human girls, and an elderly looking human man. Their mouths opened in a hungered expression as they neared, and then....

    The force slammed into Steve's chest lifting him up off his feet, and carried him into the air towards the wall. The force of the man being slammed into the rock was deafening, and left the Hall's occupants blinded by dust as the man disappeared from their sight leaving only an open hole with the view of the skies beyond the continents edge where the castle was perched.

    Amidst the settling dust, Zagara had collapsed to the ground in a wheezing mess. He struggled to catch his breath, and his body wracked with coughing fits whenever he did catch his breath.
