When Garret spoke up, Cimeies chuckled softly, slightly ruffling Antha’s hair as he looked at the magician. “I am afraid her words had more to do with things not related to the trials and more along the lines of your… appeal. Though she found the actions of both of you incredible, your friend has a heart promised to another. Your innocence called to her. She is the most playful of my companions and I shall miss her dearly. She will serve you well, though, along with the others.”
Cimeies hummed at the magician’s choice, giving a nod of approval.“You choose to be the shield against his opposition, to protect him when he is defenseless. An honorable choice from an honorable man. From your actions in this dungeon, I know you will use the power I grant you well in service to my Candidate. Ensure that others he chooses to keep by his side are just as dedicated as you, loyal companion.”
He would give a small bow to the water magician before turning to Azix once more, awaiting his decision.
When Azix held up the pendant, he gave a small smile and nodded. The pendant seemed to hold significance to the man and he was pleased with the decision. When Azix asked his question, he chuckled at the rapid fire questions.“Loaded questions, with long answers, but I will tell you what I can in the time we have left. These dungeons are our homes, in the other realm. A world we create for ourselves, to test the mettle of those that would be king. We form them with magic, of course. An incomplete answer, I know, but I must keep this relatively short. The ‘little dudes’ as you call them... they are simply a means of company, a chance to create in my boredom. Each of the ones here I came to take special note of and they have been my companions, representing a part of me… playful but dedicated, loyal with an appreciation for carnal pleasures, and my loneliness but resolve to do what is necessary. The city? It is a reflection of what was once my home, Alma Torran. Now, I would love to answer more, but the magic holding this dungeon together is beginning to unravel, so I am afraid I must cut this short.”
He would turn to Garret once again, this time a sad smile playing on his face.“To you, protector of my King Candidate, I grant you a portion of the power of my sprites and this dungeon, embedded into the shield you have chosen. Use it wisely and remember their sacrifice.”
He would then give each of the sprites a gentle kiss before waving a hand over then, murmuring words of a spell that had all three slowly dissolve into pure rukh that spun together, slowly forming a new gem in his hand, the emerald, onyx and glittering diamond swirled together perfectly before he laid it atop the shield, fusing the two together permanently. He would then hold the shield out to Garret with a small bow.
Spritely Plague ShieldTier:
A sickly green shield 52cm across embedded with a tri-colored gem.Function:
*This does not take up any of your item/weapon slots
- By paying 15 magoi, the user may summon 4 Plague Sprites approximately 10 centimeters tall, each equipped with a small thorn fashioned into a D-tier dagger that move at 20m/s to inflict anyone attacked with a plague that deals D-tier damage and halves movement and ability speeds by half for two posts to enemies within 20 meters of the user. This has a 5 post cool-down.

- User may register two Plague magic abilities of B-tier or lower to the orb.
He would then return to Azix, his face tinged with sadness, but a glimmer of hope and excitement in his eyes. Around him, shaking and crashing could be heard and felt as the dungeon began the process of falling.“Use my power wisely, my King, and I shall not let you falter in your goals.”
With a final bow to the man, a brilliant light would fill the room before the light sped over to strike the pendant Azix held, a small magical circle appearing on the pendant and glowing briefly. The sounds of destruction became louder around them. The men would have a few minutes to gather any treasure they could grab before being teleported out of the dungeon in a brilliant flash of light, Garret landing at the cave entrance to the mountain while Azix would find himself in the middle of the Imuchakk village, surrounded by curious Imuchakk children staring down at him.
