Chapter 16 – Learning the Usefulness of Magic!

 

As soon as the dungeon door opened automatically, the party is due to face against yet again two more Magenta Worms in battle; they could see the monsters hiding around the corner. The two Magenta Crawlers slither closer towards them. Additionally, the sound of moving branches could also be heard in the distance, “Screamers as well, let’s use the door to crush the worms or isolate them?” Suggested Sana.
“Let’s isolate the crawling menaces from the Screamers and if we are to completely crush the Magenta Worms using the door as a weapon. We will not be able to salvage any food from them at all. The door will crush all of the Worm’s flesh!” Replied Isai being stressed about the lack of food lately.
“You make a pretty good point, which is it and hurry the worms are almost on top of me?” Queried Karna shouting.
“Let them through, Karna, I will close the door with an open spell over the top of them as they are low to the ground!” Explained Sana using her wits again.
Karna steps back just a little bit to allow the worms to pass through the semi-circular windowed wooden door; while the screamers are moving closer to the party, the sound of their branches becomes much more deafening. Next, Sana casts her open/close door spell using the (ZO) Rune, and the opening slams behind the two Magenta Worms trapping them between Karna and the wooden exit. Karna holds up her small iron guard and instantly goes into a defensive stance; she then keeps her sword ready to parry and block any incoming bites with her shield. Both of the Magenta Worms attack at the same time, one of the crawlers tries to bite her over her bulwark while the other worm strikes a low attack towards her; this forced Karna to quickly block the lower strike and parry with the sword at the same time, “Oh god! That was extremely lucky! They have never done that in the past; please kill one of them and do it as quickly as you can. I do not know how much longer I can defend such speed and cunningness!” Yelled Karna in desperation.
“Just move back, Karna, there is no need to keep them against the door!” Suggested Rheill.
“Yes, but this whole area is one massive corridor here, and this is the best spot to keep them away from Sana and Isai. I have an idea though… we discussed earlier on using the poison cloud spell, and it may not work on the creatures as they are venomous. However, we have yet to test it, and if Sana, knows the spell by now she should be able to use it very effectively. The Worms are not getting past me while I defend here. Although it might poison the food, so the choice is yours!” Explained Karna, while she continued defending against the two Magenta Worms attacks.
“We will risk it! I can always have us take an anti-venom potion after we eat it and have Rheill store this food separate, so we know in the future!” Replied Isai as he pushes the issue of obtaining more food.
“I have learned those two runes, but have not mastered the combination yet. So the cloud may not be as powerful as it should be yet, but Karna duck!” Shouted Sana.
Next, Karna ducks behind her shield and Sana mumbles the Runes of (OH) and (VEN) then a green-coloured projectile flies from Sana’s hands. It was the same as the poisonous bolt, but it expanded into a massive green rain cloud. Karna does not dare to move as she hears the venomous rain cloud pouring down against the ground and then on top of the two Magenta Worms. The two Magenta Worms suddenly start to shriek out in pain and desperation; the crawlers look for a way to get past Karna, so they are no longer inside of the green poisonous rain cloud. However, Karna denies the creature’s passage. She starts to attack them to force them back to the door; suddenly the crawlers die as they could no longer withstand the venom from the poisonous rain cloud. The vapour then vanishes from sight as well as all the water from the toxic puddle that was on the ground as Sana stopped channelling the spell; this made it safe to move onwards and collect the food.
“Now that is some powerful magic indeed, so maybe the rain cloud is only poisonous while it is active. Although we will use, Isai’s, advice earlier when we eat these Magenta Worm rounds!” Said Sana.

Next, they gulp down their anti-venom potions as a precaution as they walk to where the toxic rain cloud was to be merely safe; Rheill and Karna then start chopping up the two dead creatures into Magenta Worm rounds.
“I will make you two new anti-venom potions, just hand me back the flasks please,” asked Isai as Karna and Rheill gently hand the empty glass flasks back to him.
Isai Additionally creates two extra Serum to protect them against poison for future battles and hand-delivers them back to both Karna and Rheill.
“Keep your weapons out… we got to deal with the Screamers next!” Demanded Karna.
“Yes, Ma’am!” Said Rheill in reply mocking her teasingly, and she smiles back at him.
Karna then opens the wooden door with the semi-circular, window. The Party then swiftly charges into the room as there was a lot more space and see that there is only just two Screamers.
“Only two, but let’s not get sloppy!” Said Isai forcefully.
Karna is already closing in to engage them armed with her sword and small iron shield; she blocks an incoming branch as Rheill chops it off from the side. The second immense Screamer swings a branch at Rheill. Karna’s timing was so spot on her move as she quickly leaps in front of Rheill and the woody-plant parrying the blow.
“Thank you, Karna!” Said Rheill thankfully, knowing he needs to get better at dodging; he will not always be able to rely on Karna’s protective skills.
“Do not mention it, now let’s finish them off!” Yelled Karna.
Karna thrusts at the tree, but misses and ducks another incoming branch and this time she lands a perfect piercing-stab at the top of the Screamer; the woody-plant shrieks out loudly, and Rheill endures the horrific sound then sticks his axe in the same spot, which takes down the first Screamer. Sana and Isai throw their shurikens and daggers, which stick perfectly in the life source area of the second screamer, which is then hurt severely. Next, Karna and Rheill both thrust and chop the tree-top to make sure it dies swiftly, which it does.

Karna and Rheill then start already chopping the two dead Screamers up; so that Sana could hand over to Isai the Screamer-slices as reserve provisions since her backpack was full.
“Thanks, Sana! Now we have more food, I feel a bit better now knowing that our food is under control again, but we must make haste still!” Said Isai.
“You are right, Isai, we need to get to a new water source soon. Our water bottles have only about two days left in each of them!” Answered Sana worryingly.
“We will be just fine!” Said Karna encouragingly as she continues to speak, “We have to push ourselves to levels, which our bodies have therefore yet to experience over the next two days… it will make sure we succeed and get off of this floor. Also, we should pray to the gods that there are more Lion-headed fountains on the next level or we will have to rush back via the short-cut!”
“Yeah, despair leads to chaos and that is exactly… what Chaos wants!” Added Rheill as he then opens his mouth again, “So, What do we have in this room?”
After Rheill said those words; the champions begin to start investigating and examining the chamber they are in, minus the dead Screamer’s tree trunks.
“Look a rapier! A very long thrusting weapon, Rheill, please take for yourself, so you can switch weapons when we meet slashing resistant creatures!” Suggested Karna.
“Okay, if you say so, Karna!” Replied Rheill.
“Yes, just take the rapier already!” replied Karna as she slightly raises her voice while glaring at Rheill with her radiating-hazel eyes that grow bigger.
Rheill quickly without hesitation secures the rapier. The sword is long and sharp much like a fencing arm. It is coated in a pale silver colour and has a brown sword handle for wielding the weapon; this makes it a primary two-handed arm or a one-handed weapon due to it being lighter than Rheill’s Axe. Although Karna’s sword is a lot sharper and is more suited for cutting; however, this blade is pure-ace when it comes to piercing the heart of the frail armoured foes. Next, Rheill sheathes it away in his scabbard and then continues to wield his two-handed axe.

After the party explored the rest of the massive chamber, where they had just fought the two Screamers and two Magenta Worms. The adventurer’s spot on the left side of the room inside of a narrow niche another wooden door; which barred their way out of the room heading in that direction. However, the exit had a semi-circular window carved into it again at the upper part of the door; it additionally had a button on the right side of the gateway to unlock it as usual.
“Another button-operated door here!” Stated Karna.
“Let’s open the door and continue and remember to close the other door that we came here through!” Suggested Sana.
“Oh damn, good thing you mentioned that Sana!” Shouted Rheill.
Karna quickly goes over to the other door and presses in the button to close it sealing them in the room, “Rheill, open the door! I am on my way back now!”
“Okay, Karna, the door is being opened as we speak!” replied Rheill across the room as he presses the button on the right of the semi-circular wooden door as it opens automatically.
The passageway is now revealed to the entourage as Karna takes point once again; they see it is a winding passageway, which turns ninety-degrees to the left, “Follow the passage I guess… nothing else is here!” Suggested Isai.
“Yes, but please be cautious; stay close behind, Karna!” Replied Sana to Isai.
Karna slowly traverses her way around the corner, which then leads to an odd-shaped room; the room is almost square but has a dead end leading off to the west. Alas though, the dead end was empty, “WATCH OUT!” Screamed Karna as she sees out the corner of her eye from down the long passage to the left of the squared-part of the room was a massive Rock-pile.
The Rock-pile was about the same size as the one they met at the entrance to this level; Karna draws out her sword and gets ready for combat, “Oh jeez, more Rock-piles!” shouted Rheill.
“Wait until it arrives at the room, this is a narrow passageway,” declared Karna.
“Good Idea again, Karna!” Answered Sana, heeding her combat advice.
Karna waits very patiently for the Rock-pile to arrive at their location as soon as it does Karna without hesitation thrusts with her sword near the ground, but she misses and remembers the defensive prowess of the first larger Rock-pile they encountered. She begins to think to herself, ‘Stillness again, I guess!’
“Wait a minute, Karna, I have an idea! My rain cloud will pour down between its rocks and kill it. Are you able to keep it in one spot for me?” Asked Sana.
“Oh Gosh, yes we did not have that spell before… great idea, love!” Replied Karna.
Karna draws her shield and gets close as she can to the evil gigantic Rock-pile; she then stabs not trying to hit it. It forces the Rock-pile to attack her, she hastily jumps back. She knows she cannot block the fiery glands of the Rock-pile, and it will catch her on fire again; she for sure does not want that to happen again to her.
Sana channels her spell using the (OH) and (VEN) Runes and the green- magical cloud appears above the Rock-pile; it starts to even put out its fire from its fiery area below all the rocks and boulders, which is the Rock-piles armour and def I am opening the door!” Said Karna a bit louder than her natural tone to make sure they were all ready.
Next, Karna pushes the button, and the door opens revealing the way to party; it appears to be a large room again after entering through the doorway. The chamber is pretty massive, and another wooden door appeared in the distance on the northern wall; suddenly, two Magenta Worms was visualised from afar, “More Worms!” Shouted Rheill, which drew their attention.
Karna slaps Rheill and then says, “That was stupid! You could have just whispered or something! Now the worms know we are here!”
“Shush dear, they could see us anyway!” Answered Rheill.
“Can you two stop arguing and like she usually does; Rheill had been carrying his two-handed axe all the time while his rapier is now in his Scabbard. just fight!” Shouted Isai.
Sana shuts the entrance, which they solely came into the room through because she was the closest to the door. Meanwhile, both Karna and Rheill engage the two Magenta Worms after the protector drew her sword out of her blade-holder; Rheill already had his axe out. The shield-maiden grabs both of the Magenta Worms attention, by arriving at their position in the middle of the large room. She slashes at the first Magenta worm and cuts it slightly; she then quickly blocks both of their bites with her small iron shield. Rheill Slashes at the same Magenta Worm from the side on the area that Karna had cut it already. It opened the wound, even more, injuring the crawler further; the crawler suddenly falls, down in pain, but remains alive still somehow.
“Rheill, watch out; the worm still lives, let us focus on the active one!” said Karna warningly.
Rheill quickly moves back away from the injured Magenta Worm and helps Karna deal with the other one. Next, Sana and Isai throw a dagger and shuriken each into the severely-damaged worm to finish it off as they heard Karna mention it was not fully-dead earlier. Karna continues to defend the other Magenta Worm’s attacks by blocking it each time with her shield. Next, Rheill strikes several times with his two-handed axe and finally delivers the killing blow chopping the worm in half. Both Karna and Rheill slice up the crawlers and Karna takes the food as both Sana and Isai’s backpacks were already full of food.
Additionally, the worm rounds that Rheill stored in his backpack earlier were the ones that were possibly poisoned by Sana’s toxic rain cloud.
“Look some elven boots here and some leg mail to match your mail aketon chest piece, Rheill!” Said Sana as she spots the items on the floor.
The party now heads over towards the elven boots; they were of a bright- illuminant green colour, they were smaller than most boots, “I will take them as I feel they could be magically enchanted and suited for me. I cannot wear heavier armour anyway, so this will be perfect for me!” Explained Sana as she takes off the black leather boots one at a time from each of her feet.
Next, she places the green elven boots on her feet one at a time, “They look good on you!” Complimented Isai.
“Awww, thank you, Isai!” Replied Sana.
“Rheill, Take the Leg-mail; it will serve you better as you are our defender. I will be more careful until we find a set of armour that is more suited for myself. Also, I do have a small iron, shield whereas you don’t have a protective guard to defend incoming attacks better!” Explained Karna.
“Okay, I will remove the leather slacks and use this then!” Replied Rheill.
Rheill begins to take off his brown leather slacks and reveals his long and muscular legs as he is then only wearing his warrior hide. Karna takes a distinctive look at Rheill after he had removed it and was just in his warrior- hide. She smiles and thinks to herself, ‘Damn I honestly missed watching Rheill before he got this armour… I could see his shape better in only leather. I better take this time to sample those lovely built legs. He will most likely not be taking this off again until we are out of this dungeon. Unless he finds some plate armour!’
Rheill noticed Karna was watching him and he smiles and takes his sweet time on purpose to tease Karna some more; he then finally puts on the mail aketon legs.
“You look lovely, even when your body appears covered in chainmail, darling!” Said Karna, slyly.
“Why thank you, dear, I need to get used to moving in this still as it is heavier than my leather armour. I already noticed I am a bit slower at moving and could be why that worm bit my leg two days ago. Now they will have to bite through steel!” Replied Rheill.
“Now we have you well protected, Rheill!” Stated Sana.
“Shall we eat and rest here or want to push on to the next secured area,” asked Isai.
“Here is good! I want to practise using my Axe using this full set of mail, aketon before we continue,” declared Rheill.
“Okay Rheill, go ahead! I will prepare us some Worm rounds, and this will be the last of our water… we need to get more tomorrow!” said Sana worryingly.
Rheill begins swinging his axe and moving about; he appears to be unhindered as much as he thought he would be. He gets used to the way the armour moves. However, he probably will not be able to jump around as much.
Suddenly, Rheill approaches the northern doorway still swinging his axe, and this door remained closed and unexplored. Also, it appeared constructed from hardwood with the semi-circular window carved into the top of it. He notices there is another empty, glass flask sitting upright on the ground.
“There is another vial here, Isai,” yelled Rheill from across the room.
He picks it up and brings it back to the party and then hands it over to Isai.
“Thank you, Rheill! We now possess six flasks. We need to reach the next Lion-headed fountain or whatever the shape of the next fountain is. I will utilise one of them to carry more water for us as the other three have the (VI) contents in them right now. Also, you and Rheill have one anti-venom potion each!” Explained Isai.
“The Magenta Worm rounds are ready, let’s eat now. I know, Karna, said this before when she tried one and that it didn’t taste very nice. However, as she said previously this may have been her unique taste of food, and so the rest of you and I will like it!” Said Sana, as she handed out four Magenta Worm rounds from her stock of provisions.
Karna does not like these at all but knows she must eat and that this is the oldest food they have and need to eat that first.
“You are right, Karna, this does not taste as nice as the Screamer slices. However, this is what we have to eat and to survive!” Said Sana.
“That is right, Sana!” Replied Isai.
“For sure!” Mentioned Rheill as well.
They all finish up their meal and take the last drink of their water-bottles that now become just a water-skinned bottle. The time for finding more water is now becoming the time of the essence. They all put their water-skinned bottles away inside of their backpacks. Next, they decide to get some rest as Karna sleeps close to Rheill on top of his armour, which makes it a bit colder to lay on top of; although, she does not care and only wants to be close to her new love.
Sana decides to lie extremely close to Isai as she slowly closes her eyes. The room then becomes pitch black as Sana falls asleep and her illuminant light Rune now fades into the darkness.
“Good Night Sweetie!” Whispered Rheill to Karna.
“Good Night, Dear,” replied Karna as they raise their plated helms to share a gentle kiss good night.
