Chapter 17 – The Magenta Worms Lair!


Sana is the first one out of the four that was awake, and then she channels her light spell using her (Ful) Rune. The light-spell illuminated the chamber where the adventurer’s slept. It awakens the rest of the party as Karna gently rubs her hazel eyes, wondering where all the light had just come from, so suddenly.
“Oh, good morning Sana!” said as she makes it to her feet.
“Sana, Let the guys rest for a while, Rheill deserves it always having me on top of him. Isai does too for comforting you as well. However, most importantly we can now have some girl talk!”
‘Damn, I hate having to lie about Isai to her, and I only know the truth of this matter too!’ thought Karna ever so silently.
“Good idea, Karna, tell me do you plan to marry Rheill after this quest is all done?”
“Hmm Sana, that is a remarkably interesting question! I have not decided yet, and I do not plan to rush things, but my heart tells me I should! However, one thing at a time. Oh, and he has to ask me, Rheill is the man after all!”
“Yes, damn right he should Karna!”
“What about Isai… Sana, share your true feelings with me please?”
“I have mixed feelings, Karna… my heart tells me to trust him, but my mind says he is after one thing. I will wait a little longer, but much like you dear, I would like to wait until we defeat Chaos! No point us starting anything if one of us gets killed. I know I should not say this, but it is the reality of this quest!”
After the girly conversation had just taken place about their love lives; both Isai and Rheill then awaken from their deep slumber to see that the girls were both up and chatting.
“Good morning girls, so you talking about us?” Said Rheill, as all of them then get ready to continue exploring as they all knew they had very little water left.

The party of adventurers then head on over to the wooden semi-circular door; this was where Karna had found the empty flask that she had given to Isai before they went to sleep.
“So this is the way forward, huh?” Asked Rheill.
“Yeah, this is the only way, Rheill! Get your weapons out as I am opening the door!” Stated Karna.
Karna, just let me use the open (ZO) Rune, so you are both ready!” Explained Sana.
“Sure Sana, we learned that magic was so useful yesterday. The more spells we can get you to learn and master. It will give us such an easier time, as we descend deeper into the dungeon!” Answered Karna.
Karna unsheathes her sword while Rheill already had his two-handed axe out. Next, Karna readies her shield as Sana channels the Rune of (ZO), and the door opens automatically; they then come face to face with two more extensive Magenta Worms.
“Let them into the room everyone. Sana can you close the door once they are inside with your spell!” Suggested Karna.
“Okay, Karna, but keep them away from me if possible!” Replied Sana.
Karna continues to strike and thrust at both of the two Magenta Worms; she then suddenly retreats, and they slither and follow her slowly. Sana channels her Rune once more and the door slams shut, which thunders throughout the chamber; the Magenta crawlers turn around as they also hear the sound and realise they are now trapped. The lengthy crawly creatures show signs of brilliance.
Karna does not give them a chance to regroup, “Rheill, now strike… they are distracted!”
“Yes, Dear!” replied Rheill as Karna and Rheill take out the first Magenta Worm with a double thrust to its extensive magenta coloured body.
“One Down!” shouted Isai.
Karna lures the worm towards her by moving in first and blocks the lunging bite style of attack with ease; Sana hastily throws her dagger into the upper body of the remaining Magenta Worm. Next, Isai throws his shuriken which lands into the lower body; Rheill then severs the Magenta Worms head decapitating it from its body, and the worm remains motionless on the ground.
“A nice lucky break we just got from the door slamming shut! It allowed you and Rheill to take the first one down before they even knew what had hit them!” Said Isai.
“Grab your projectiles from the ground!” said Karna as she starts chopping up both of the worms. She knew the group had to act fast; as the lingering thought of only one day of water left for the group, coursed through her mind.
“Thank you, Karna, I almost forgot about my dagger there!” Replied Sana thankfully.
Both Rheill and Karna hand over the Magenta Worm rounds to Sana who now has more room in her backpack as they ate some of the crawler rounds from her bag yesterday.
“Okay, the food is packed… let’s see what lies beyond the door, now that the worms are dead!” said Sana.

Next, Karna opens the door, via the button this time and the entourage enters through the door. Karna then closes it behind them, once all of them were passed the archway; the door slams shut again, which echoes throughout the corridor.
They instantly see that the passage winds towards the right and then turns to the left; there is additionally a demon face on the wall to the right of where they entered the corridor via the wooden, semi-circular door. Also, next to the strange-face is some green slime coming out of an annular hole inside of the stony-wall. The party moves swiftly to avoid the stench and the disturbing visual images of the ooze dripping out from the dungeon-wall. The passageway then changes course again to the left in the form of a sudden ninety-degree turn, which leads to the corridor turning right. However, earlier on the left-hand side just before the right-handed corner is a portcullis leading off somewhere; which the party cannot see until they finally reach the door, but moving branches were heard coming from the direction of the metal-grated entrance.
“What the heck! There are eight Screamers in this room!” Yelled Rheill as the shock finally hit him.
“Wow, there is! Not sure if we even want to fight this many at once, That will be so much food for us. We need to take it with us!” Demanded Karna.
“Let’s do what we did with the group of six. We split them up using the door, but the problem is the close spell will not work unless we are directly in front of the door!” Suggested Sana
“Also, another thing! We have not explored past the door, so let’s leave the giant trees in there for now. Maybe there is a better place to fight them then this corridor, and we are certainly not going inside there. Four versus eight is not good odds, right?” Added Isai with is own input.
Karna solely nods in agreement; she then leads the entourage onwards and around the corner leaving the Screamers behind the portcullis. They come to an oblong-shaped room with the upper-left corner being jagged, as a wall is sticking out on that part. On the right, side of it is an alcove. On the left side subsequently to that wall sticking out is another demon-type face, which looked similar, to previous ones. Also, next to that is some more slime coming out of the partition from a circular outlet; which is right next to the demon face that appeared carved into the wall flawlessly. “This looks indeed a better place to fight them, but how do we close the door, I do not know? We merely cannot enable all of the Screamers to escape either, or we will be pretty much in trouble. However, if all of us can take a few of them out here before the others get to us, we might stand a more realistic chance!” Explained Karna to the rest of them.
“Why don’t one of us just simply rush back to the door and close it?” Suggested Sana.
“Hmm, yes that would work!” Replied Isai.
“Either Isai or Sana should do it… I think, or maybe even, I should do it. Karna can keep them occupied somehow!” Mentioned Rheill.
“Okay, so this is the plan; let’s put it into motion!” Said, Karna.
“I am going to go open the door now and see how many Screamers I can lure out here then. Sana can you stand at the end of the passage as I need your light source!” declared Karna.
“Yes, Karna, it is a good thing you mentioned that or you wouldn’t be able to see over the haziness of the darkness!” Replied Sana.
Karna goes back to the portcullis and presses the button; the door opens automatically as it standardly does, and the first group of screamers move towards the door; Karna quickly runs back to others, but suddenly the door shuts before they could get out of the room.
“Something triggered the door to close… maybe a hidden trigger or pressure plate?” Said Sana using her intellectual prowess.
“Well now we know this is going to happen; it will make it even easier to split the two groups of Screamers up. We will fight them four at a time, which we are used to!” Stated Karna.
Karna goes back to open the door; she then sidesteps to her right and waits for the Screamers to pass through the portcullis. The sound of the Screamers moving their branches sounded as they swayed in the illuminant light from Sana’s magical torch spell. Karna then rushes back to the group, and the portcullis slams shut leaving the screamers outside as they pursued Karna towards the room.
“Do not use the rain-cloud spell please, in case it messes up the food at least the Screamer slices are delicious!” stated Karna.
“Was not planning to… however, we need to test those Magenta Worm rounds out that Rheill has in his backpack. We shall do this the next time we eat, as eight screamers will give us plenty of food. I truly hope we can carry it all!” Mentioned Sana as the trees draw closer to the party.
Karna wields her sword above her head and readies her sword for combat, “Get over on the right side of the room please, Sana and Isai!” Declared Karna, so they had better range and less chance of getting hit by the Screamer’s branches.
The gigantic trees make it into the room as Karna greets them with a slashing blow; this catches the first Screamer by surprise, and it cuts the branch off, which makes it shriek out loudly. The party is used to the sound now, so they are not affected by it at all; Karna prevented several attacks using her small metal shield after that from the rest of the Screamers. Next, Karna smartly jumps back to get out of striking range from further attacks.
“Shoot the Screamer with only one branch left… I am going back in to keep the rest busy… Rheill, Help me as three is a bit much!” Yelled Karna ferociously.
“Of course, Karna!” Answered Rheill.
Both Rheill and Karna move in Rheill chops off branch after branch with his two-handed after Karna had blocked each one with her small iron shield or parried the attack. Meanwhile, Isai throws his shuriken followed by Sana’s dagger, and it hits square in the top right where their life-source was, and the first Screamer comes crashing down to the ground.
“One down!” roared Isai.
“We should be able to finish them off as they have hardly any branches left, but no cockiness allowed!” Shouted Karna while fighting.
Karna then evades the next attack sideways and thrusts her sword into the top of the second Screamer, which dispatches it swiftly. Rheill throws his two-handed axe with such force, and it lands in the top of another Screamer’s Lifeforce killing it instantly.
The feat of strength even amazed Karna, ‘what power!’ she thinks to herself while suddenly ducking a branch that she saw out of the corner of her left hazel eye.
“Karna, careful!” Shouted Sana worryingly.
“I am fine!” Replied Karna.
The two remaining Screamers attack Karna relentlessly, but they are just too slow for her. She expertly ducks and defends herself on every single attack. Meanwhile, Rheill sneaks up behind the two woody-plants and then draws his rapier out silently and thrusts into the head of one of them; it shrieks and collapses. Suddenly, the remaining Gigantic-Tree turned towards Rheill, but Karna quickly slashes without hesitation several times into the life-source of the remaining Screamer. The party is then victorious; although the party knows that four more Woody-plants still await them inside the room with the portcullis back down the corridor.
“You want to fight the second group of Screamers inside that room or here?” Asked Karna softly.
“Here please, Karna, so all the food is easier to gather up!” Suggested Sana.
“Such wisdom as always, Sana!” Praised Isai.
‘wow suck up to her even more, you might get into her knickers soon!’ this time was the thoughts coming from Rheill before Sana was able to answer.
“Awww, Isai thank you!”
Karna noticed Rheill’s body language, knowing him closer than the others she could sense it was probably the same thing she was thinking; before she speaks again, “Going back to the door now and letting them out. Please get your weapons while I do that!”
Karna disappears momentarily while Rheill, Sana and Isai collect their weapons from the dead Screamers. They all re-arm themselves as Karna comes back after letting out the second group of gigantic trees, the door slams shut behind them; Karna hurries back to the group, and she is ready for combat again.
Karna jumps back against the wall that was sticking out not realising it was a false-wall. She loses her balance but manages to stay upright and she then quickly moves towards her left and out of the illusionary-wall.
“Watch out that wall sticking out is not what it seems!” Shouted Karna.
Rheill swings his two-handed axe violently but is unable to land any blows on the Screamer directly. Although, he does manage to chop an incoming branch off with it into two, causing large chunks of bark to fall onto the floor and make a horrific noise. Sana throws a dagger, but the screamer shoves it away in mid-air with one of its branches; Karna then sees the opening and chops off that Screamer-branch, which got exposed to her.
“Nice, Karna!” Said Rheill.
“Isai try to hit the Screamer now… I will rush the other three Screamers!” Demanded Karna.
Isai followed Karna’s guidance perfectly as soon as she had rushed towards the other three Screamers; he throws his shuriken, which lands in life source killing one of the gigantic Screamers. Next, she suddenly puts her shield up to defend herself and blocks all of the incoming branches with relative ease. Karna continues to hide behind her shield and peeks out every now and again; finally, she thrusts into the life force of another Screamer, and it shrieks out loudly. Karna goes back to concealing herself behind the small iron shield and blocks some more incoming branches with it. Rheill then begins to chop off its branches one at a time with a bunch of forwards and downward-slashes until all of them are gone; as that particular Screamer, was injured from Karna’s stabbing motion. He eventually chops the tree in half from the top, which left only two Screamers alive.
Sana pulls out another dagger from her quiver and gets it ready to throw at the other two Screamers; this time, however, she waits for Karna to start attacking them in between her defensive stance. Karna lands a few blows, which separate their branches from their tree trunks, Sana then throws the dagger straight at the top of the Screamer; it sticks inside of the life force area, and it dispatched yet another Screamer. Next, Karna moves towards the remaining Screamer, joined by Rheill. They both slash away at the remaining gigantic tree, which they then take down with ease; the party then stands victorious over the second group of trees.

“We Win! We Win!” Shouted Karna triumphantly.
We sure did, Karna!” Replied Rheill.
“Let’s check this secret area… during the fight. I almost stumbled to the ground due to this wall deceiving us. This is much like the one we found a while back in the cavern area of the dungeon on floor three,” explained Karna as she shows the rest of the party as she disappears through the wall.
“See, come through. There are items, lying on the ground here!” Shouted Karna to the others.
The others traverse the illusion, and they see a pair of chain mail boots known as a Hosen. They are coloured silver and appear constructed out of a steel-chain link material; which matches the rest of Rheill’s mail aketon, chainmail set, “Rheill, do you want the boots since you already have a full set of mail aketon?” Asked Karna in a magnanimous gesture.
“No, honey, you are our protector, please take the boots as they are better than your leather boots and I already have a full set of armour!” Replied Rheill.
‘Aww! So sweet, but I could have that type of love in my life!’ Sana thought to herself feeling a little bit of jealousy build up, but she controls it very well, as she watches Rheill and Karna talk to each other.
Meanwhile, Isai watches on and smiles as he starts to gazing at Karna’s legs, getting ready to perving on her feet and lower legs. Luckily for Isai, Rheill did not notice this as he had his back to him. Karna then begins to remove her leather boots one at a time and exposes her radiating calves and petite feet; Rheill watches her and does not shift his gaze from her.
Karna senses Rheill is inspecting her, and she smiles back at him, knowingly that Rheill loves her to death.
‘I truly love him more each day!’
Karna thinks to herself, and she then realises every day as these thoughts run through her mind. ‘We must get through this… so he can take me to the altar!’
Unfortunately, Karna did not know she had a second male-viewer, which she would not have appreciated at all. Karna knows how notoriously creepy Isai is; as she next places each Hosen boot onto her feet offering her much better protection from possible attacks.
“Look there is another drumstick here and a torch that we could take. Even though, we do not need the light from it. We could still find a use for it to solve puzzles in the future!” Said Sana.
Karna takes the drumstick, which looked the same as the ones they found earlier; although, they have yet to encounter or come into, contact with such a beast. Karna takes the torch as well and places it inside of her backpack as Isai and Sana’s backpacks are full up with Screamer and Magenta Worm rounds.
“Let’s cut these trees up. Rheill you carry this lot of Screamer slices and give me the Magenta Worm rounds that we think could have been poisonous from coming, in contact with Sana’s venomous raincloud spell!” Asked Kana softly.
“Sure, here you go!” Replied Rheill.
“I will take a bite now to check if it is poisonous from being killed by the venomous attack. I have an anti-Venom potion, make me drink it if I collapse suddenly!” Explained Karna as she takes a bite into the worm around and nothing seems to happen to her at all.
“Looks like it is safe,” said Karna while Rheill chopped up the dead Screamers by himself, which he had no trouble with using his two-handed axe.
Next, she gives the other Magenta Worm round to Rheill to eat for his meal as Sana pulls out two more Magenta Worm rounds for herself to eat and Isai. All of them get stuck into eating their food, while they exit out of the false wall section as it was a dead end.

After the champions finish eating their Magenta Worm, round meals. They then all get up and prepare themselves to resume their journey through the dungeon. The party subsequently decided to leave out of the room to the right as they knew that the other chamber only contained food. Next, the grey-scaled walls of the dungeon take a right-handed turning and then a left-handed turn. The party then walks down the corridor after taking the two twisted turnings and come to another left curve, which leads into a medium sized chamber. The chamber has regular grey-scaled walls, minus the one with the demon face on the top of the right-wall.
“Look something is on the ground!” Said Sana, excitedly.
Karna moves towards the entrance as a lookout, as the area beyond was yet to be explored by the adventurers. Sana notices it is another coin, but this time it was coloured in golden, and it looked polished and shiny as if it was brand new.
“Wow, that is shiny, did chaos put it there or what?” Asked Sana.
“No idea, Sana-baby!” Replied Isai.
“Awww, Sana-baby that is so cute!” Shouted Karna from the chamber’s exit, “it was a cute name I need play along or Sana will suspect something!’
‘Why, is he calling me that? Who does he think he is, I am not his girl yet… I will smile back to avoid drama!’ sana thought to herself silently.
“Look, Isai, this is what you have been waiting for since level three and for a quite a while too! A very nice wooden bow!” said Rheill as he points towards it on the ground.
“Look, Isai, this is what you have been waiting for since level three and for a quite a while too! A very nice wooden bow!” Said Rheill as he points towards it on the ground.
Karna quickly returns to the room, as Isai lets loose an arrow, which flies all the way and hits the grey-scaled dungeon wall. Next, Isai picks up the arrow-shaft; he just fired from his bow as Karna motions them to follow closely behind her that.

The corridor turns sharply to the right and back to the left after the brown square-shaped grating that got carved into the ground. It then moved two paces forwards before it curves again towards the right and again twisting to the left. The passage then leads north a bit; before it turns to the west Into a small room that has a passageway, leading out towards the south-west.
“Watch out!” Yelled Rheill to Karna.
Karna stops suddenly and asks, “Why?”
There is a pit to the left and with some cryptic text carved into the wall to the left of it!” Explained Rheill, spotting the hole out of the corner of his eye.
Sana starts to read out the enigmatic text, “This is my prisoner, let him suffer!”
Sana notices a Mummy is across the pit in a dead end; although, it is standing on top of a square-shaped, pressure plate. Sana screams softly after noticing the Mummy, but she soon realises that the mummy cannot cross the trap door to get her; next, Isai cuddles her comfortably in a friendly manner.
“Leave the Mummy for now and explore the rest of this corridor!” stated Karna.
The party starts walking and notices an empty alcove towards the right on the wall; it is almost adjacent to the pit trap but is slightly after it. After that is a brown, squared-grating, which is a few steps beyond the alcove and then there is a crack on the ground. The fracture is minor and coloured black, but is far too small to fall into it. After that, the corridor goes to a junction with a wooden door that appears to have no way of opening it.
“This door needs to be chopped?” Queried, Sana.
“Yes, I think so, but check the end of the corridor, so we know what we are dealing with!” Replied Karna to Sana.
Karna heads down the corridor that leads away from the wooden door and learns that the passageway turns towards the right into a dead end; so, she solely rejoins the party.

Rheill starts to chop down the wooden door, Karna offers her assistance in the form of swinging her sword, and they both cut through the doorway. The party of four then enters through the archway and come to a four by four room with a long corridor leading off to the west. Sana shivers slightly, as she sees yet another demon-face on the left partition. Karna’s face then captures a disgusting look as she holds her nose as she suddenly, smells that same disturbing odour again.
The scent was coming from the green-slime dripping out of the wall again to the right from a circular outlet; which was adjacent to the right of demon-face on the wall. Next, The party observes a strange type of horn lying on the floor and a sealed metal-grated portcullis; leading to the right and some stairs heading down to level five of the dungeon.
“Here is an exit, there must be some water fountains below, but we need to solve this prisoner enigma now!” Suggested Sana to the party.
“Yes, let’s go back… I think we need to kill the mummy as it says, let him suffer?” Said, Karna.
“Hmm, that probably is the answer, but I sense a trap from it!” Said Sana, worryingly.
“We will have to deal with everything, just like we have in the past!” Explained Rheill.
“Spot on, Rheill!” Said Isai.
The champions traversed all the way back to where the pit was situated, and they can now see the mummy; Karna withdraws the torch from her backpack and holds the flambeau up high. Next, Sana channels her Ful Rune and ignites the fireband so Karna can throw it towards The Mummwhite bandaged-entity. She hurls it at the creature, and the Mummy started to burn. All of its white bandages went up in flames until there was nothing more than burnt black obsidian charcoal and ash. It now resided on the floor, and then a chain of events seem to have been put in motion.

The wall suddenly starts opening, which was to the right of the Mummy, this seemed to be in between the stairs and the pressure pad; where the mummy was. At the same time, the portcullis door rattled open, which now allowed them to exit the level. Suddenly, now the trap had been thrown into full motion as there is now a load of Magenta Worms crawling about abruptly. They could see this from looking over the deep hole in the ground and through the wall, which just opened. Also, on the right wall, some new, cryptic text appeared; Karna then notices the feint un-readable text, on the right wall before the pit, and asks the following question, “Sana, please translate this, quickly!”
“There is, four packs of Worms… they were not there when we just explored it!” Screamed Sana in desperation, she then moves quickly towards the wall to read the text, which Karna previously asked her too.
‘YOU WILL REGRET THIS!’ she read out in despair as the writing was in huge capital letters.
Karna rushes over to Sana, “Sana, Focus, this will be a tough challenge, although, we have a bow and arrow now; we know it is safe to use your rain cloud now!” Said, Karna, as she holds Sana by her shoulders with both of her delicate and firm hands gently.
She shakes her softly to reassure her that just because there are a large, number of Magenta Worms, eight to be precise.
Karna quickly draws out her weapons as she knows they will head through the door that they had chopped down earlier.
“This is there Lair!” Shouted Rheill.
“It may be, their lair but they need to get past me… NONE SHALL PASS!” yelled Karna loudly as she stands her ground.
“Karna stand to the right please once the first set of Magenta Worms reach you… so that Isai can use his new bow and arrow to reign death on them from afar. I can use my poison bolt spell as you will move around a lot. The venomous rain cloud will not be as effective here as there are many worms and we need to keep moving!”
Explained Sana in detail to the rest of the party and mainly to Karna.
Karna moves quickly to her right and Isai starts to shoot arrows. He fires two and they both land inside the head of the first Magenta Worm; which kills it before it even reaches Karna. Sana channels a few poisonous bolts, which lands on the remaining worm. Suddenly, more groups could be seen approaching Karna; so, she motions them to move back a little bit towards the first square room.
Isai has two arrows left; however, he saves them for when they need them to kill multiple Magenta Worms at the same time. The other crawlers had succumbed to Sana’s toxic bolts as only the second group of worms had arrived in the small room.
“Kill them quickly as there is four more somewhere!” Shouted Isai.
Karna begins to slash her sword at one of the Magenta Worms, but then she quickly blocks and parries their bites; she shield-slams, the worm that bites her stunning it.
“Die Worm!” yelled Rheill as he decapitates its head from its body and it dies instantly.
Karna then parries and stabs the other worm, but it does not die yet until she thrusts it a second time deep into it’s purple, slithery skin.
By now four more worms had reached them, but alas they were all together now.
“I cannot defend four of these at once… they are too fast! Isai, shoot at them, do not worry if you miss as we will run back to the room where we found the secret, dead-end with the Hosen boots, we need to get least one of these dead and fast!” Stressed Karna in a desperate tone of voice.
Sana channels her rain cloud several times so that the Magenta Worms get severely poisoned by the toxic vapour as it covers the corridor. The sound of the gushing green and vile storm pours down an intense noxious liquid into the passageway; as she stood in front of the rest of the party and shouts, “Isai, shoot now!”
However, the worms were smart and did not move down the corridor, but Isai lets lose two more arrows into the air; unfortunately, they miss due to all the toxic rain clouds, blocking his vision.
“Damn it!” He yelled.
“Do not worry, damn these worms are smarter than we initially thought! We will go hand to hand with them as we are out of arrows!” Suggested Rheill.
I can channel more spells, but it drains my mental strength with each spell I cast, per day it seems. I can only invoke a limited number of magical spells before resting!” Explained Sana.
“Use the corridor, Karna!” Said Isai.
“I think it is best only two can attack me then, and they will not hit me then!” Stated Karna.
Karna hides behind her shield; Rheill then goes into a frenzy as the worms try to kill Karna, with their bites. Karna remains calm and uses her stillness, to not get hit.
“Oh jeez, he has gone into a barbarian rage… he did this once before!” Yelled Karna.
Rheill fights with pure power and Karna aids him by getting in the way of a crawlers strike. It, unfortunately, gets Karna, bitten by one of the Magenta, poisonous worms on the arm through her leather jerkin sleeve; she screams in pain, but not as loud as when she got burnt by the rock-pile. Suddenly, blood starts to flow from the arm, as the bite went extremely deep into the deltoid that was her weapon arm. The danger is now upon Karna as the severely, dangerous toxic venom enters her blood-stream and she is unable to take the anti-venom potion as it forces her to drop her weapon on the floor.
“Karna drink the anti-venom now!” Shouted Isai.
“I am a little busy here! Rheill, give me your anti-venom potion or take mine out of my backpack before I die!” Screamed Karna in Agony as she feels the venom flowing through her body as she collapses, but lucky she falls backwards.
Isai quickly snaps Rheill out of his berserker rage by shaking him violently, “Why is Karna on the floor?” He queried as he breaks him out of it.
“You went into that raging place again!” Replied Isai.

Now that Rheill possesses all of his senses back he heaves her away from the worms along the ground; he subsequently removes her helmet, revealing her attractive face. Karna is in a critical condition and starts to close her sparkling hazel eyes as the poison proceeds to torture and kill her. Much like it did to Rheill, but he is considerably larger, so it took longer to affect him. Rheill takes out the Anti-venom potion from his backpack, “Karna, stay with me!” He shouts; but not as in as much despair as Karna did three days ago. He experienced this; because of how powerful the Vi-Bro antidote is, as it spared his life once before.
He hastily decants the liquid into Karna’s soft and pretty lips, and it flows down back of her throat. Karna then feels the deadly-venom getting purged from her blood and arteries; she then opens her hazel eyes. Sadly, for her, the first thing the protector sees is the four extensive Poisonous Magenta Worms crawling over her sword and towards the party. She looks in horror as she sees the blood dripping from her right arm.
Karna clutches it tightly and picks herself back up with all the strength and fight that she could muster and yells, “I cannot fight like this, we have to retreat unless you can kill the remaining four Worms!”
“Please let’s retreat to the screamer room unless the worms can bite through metal… we should be safe, and we can patch you up, Karna!” Demanded Isai.
Both Isai and Rheill, help Karna back to the room as she is unable to walk. Although her right deltoid is giving her severe pain every time she moves, more blood is waiting to drip out; as she holds it tightly to prevent further blood loss from her upper arm.
“Thank you, both of you! Rheill, I will discuss with you how to help your berserker rage… it is starting to become a real issue as you can see the results from it!”
She pauses and speaks again, “We can do this while Isai, makes me a new VI healing potion and Isai finds me something to conceal my wound with!” she presses on it tightly, and the pain visually appears across her face.

They finally reach the portcullis; Rheill presses the button and opens it for Karna to enter the room. She then sits down against the left-handed, wall; she remains holding her arm as Isai passes her a VI, potion to her. She takes her hand, away from the wound and drinks the potion to eradicate the pain from her right bicep, and speaks with relief, “Oh, thank you Isai, this pain is gone and so happy, Theron brought you to the Adventures Inn. Your healing skills are what have saved us two from two near-death experiences. Also, you saved Sana a great deal of pain when she got hurt by that clubbing blow as well!”
“Don’t mention it, Karna… every one of us is playing their part in this quest to save the world!” Answered Isai.
Karna then begins to help Rheill with his berserker rage problem; as Isai, cuts off the leather material from Karna’s right arm and shoulder exposing her flesh.
Sana turns her head away as she sees the large teeth marks on Karna’s right tricep all the way to her bicep, “That does look nasty!” Shuddered Sana.
“Yes, but least it is no longer bleeding, thanks to Isai’s first aid skills!” Said, Karna, as she then turns to look at, Rheill.
“You let your barbarian rage get the better of you… I got hit because I had to jump in front and defend you, but I missed timed it by having to do extra work. You need to focus and learn to forget everything. I need to teach you the art of stillness. Even though this is extremely dangerous when this happens, you do gain such strength as well. It is almost a double-edged sword!” Explained Karna.
“Yeah, it just happens Karna, in middle of battle. I saw you in danger, and my inner-beast got activated. I welcome the help with open arms as I would rather fight in control than a killing machine!” Replied Rheill.
“Yes, Rheill, learn to control your emotions, and you will discover how to anticipate the enemy’s movements as I can!” Replied Karna.
Sana screams suddenly, as she sees two of the remaining four worms, at the entrance; they attempt to bite through the steel door as they can see their prey inside of the small chamber.
“The Magenta Worms are here!” Yelled Rheill, as he pulled out his Rapier silently from his weapon-holder.
He then stabs one of the magenta-crawlers through the bars of the alloyed-portcullis in its jaws. It slays it with the element of cunningness and surprise.
“Rheill, give me that rapier, these worms have hell to pay!” Demanded Karna.
“Hell no, my baby, Sugarpuff, you rest here… we will finish them off!”
Karna could only smile as she finds her new pet-name extremely cute. She manages to rest her frame against the dungeon wall, exhausted from the ordeal, she had just suffered.
“Isai, you still have your shurikens, right?” Asked Rheill.
“Yes, oh, I just realised why you asked that!” Replied Isai as he throws the throwing star through one of the lower, squares within the portcullis striking the Worm in its mouth killing it instantly.
After the worm dies; the shuriken makes a metallic sound as it hits the ground.
“There is only two left, but I am out of spells. However, I do have my daggers still!” Declared, Sana.
“Let’s open it and go after the remaining two, poisonous worms!” Said Rheill, wanting to avenge his mistake that left his lady in an injured state and he holds himself responsible.
“Close it after… in case the creatures, go for Karna, she needs to rest!”
Rheill gives Karna his rapier, “Please use my sword, Karna, and protect yourself. It will make you feel safer from being alone in here!” Said Rheill, lovingly.
“Thank you, Rheill, I truly do love you!” She replied as she sees him open the door and leave with Sana and Isai.
They take a single step towards the worm’s lair; suddenly a loud sound echoes throughout the dungeon, as the portcullis slams shut sealing, Karna inside the room.
“Oh, by the gods… they split up. I see only one worm!” Yelled Rheill as he looks at the single worm in front of him.
“To make things even worse the door shut from the hidden mechanism!” Said Isai.
The other worm, then suddenly slithers around the corner from behind towards the three-party members; Luckily, Karna sees the creepy-crawler and flings the Rapier that Rheill had left with her. The blade travels flawlessly through the squared-hole of the metal portcullis. The sword connects with such precision into the side of the crawler it collapses in pile of green blood, she then screams, “Rheill, I just killed a worm creeping up on you guys… now kill the last one for me!”
“I am so glad I left that rapier with her now… she just saved us a major ambush!”
“That Is a problem I knew would arise eventually; it wasn’t a question of would it happen. It was a question of when we would have to deal with such a problem in this dungeon. Usually, we have been lucky enough to deal with all of these threats contained between closed doors. However, it is not over yet, the worm approaches!” Explained Sana.
Rheill hastily throws his axe straight into the head of the last and remaining worm; the party finally stands triumphantly over the eight Magenta Worms, “Great job to everyone, seriously!” Praised, Sana.
Next, the champions reclaim all of their lost equipment from the dead Magenta Worms that are close to them. The three of them also checked where Karna had got bitten by the Magenta evil-crawler. Rheill places the axe over his back; so that he can pick up, Karna’s Helmet and sword.
He then returns to Karna to give her equipment back, she then places her full-plate helmet back over the top of her head and then retrieves her sword. She gives Rheill his Rapier; so that he can put it away inside of his weapon-holder for emergencies just like this. Karna is now able to make it back to her feet and move around pretty well again; the VI Healing potion effects are effectively influencing her body. She returns with Rheill to Isai and Sana’s position; as they were standing by the first lot of worms that they eliminated.
“Let’s cut these worms up, take the food and eat any of the food we cannot carry and then find your arrows Isai!” Said Rheill.
“I already took my arrows and placed them inside my quiver, and Sana retrieved her daggers… while you were giving Karna her equipment back!”
Rheill and Karna cut all the worms up starting with the closest worms; Karna is, able to help Rheill slice and dice the worms into round slices. They then do the same with the Magenta, worms corpses all the way back near the screamer room; Karna and Rheill keep the new food as Isai and Sana both have their provisions full.

Next, they then all decide to head before the opened portcullis in front of the stairs that descend to level five of chaos’ evil dungeon. Sana then pulls out four more Magenta Worm rounds and hands them and says, “Here is your food, we will eat now!”
“We are all out of our water, but we need to rest, and I am exhausted after that last battle. I got hurt badly!” stressed Karna as she rubs her hazel eyes and slumps down to the ground next to the wall.
“We should be okay to rest for at least a few hours until we find a water source on the next level, or we are running back to get more from level two!” Said Sana.
They all slowly get some rest as they all sleep, tightly together as they are all fatigued from the fights against the Screamers and the large group of Magenta Worms.

The adventurers awaken after only four hours of sleep. All of them knew that they desperately needed to find some new water to fill up their water-bottles. Sana channels her Ful Rune and illuminates the area again, so it becomes bright again. Next, they head towards the stairs, and they all step boldly down the stairs into the fifth level of the dungeon; The party observes a lion-headed water fountain facing them as soon as they descended the stairs, “WATER!” Yelled Karna loudly.
However, Karna’s yelling attracted a new type of entity from down the long corridor. Only a shadow appeared of it approaching them; it was nothing they had previously encountered. Karna draws her sword ready for combat.
