Maina was quite taken aback at all the commotion. She watched the pangolin hurtle towards the sponge, which seemed to have just created a large amount of quickly spreading fire throughout the arena floor. While a precious second passed she saw the rabbit turn the fire into grass, but then she ran as fast as she could to the stairs leading to the network of raised platforms that were blissfully free of fire. Finding one that was out of sight and mostly protected from the circling phoenix and sponge above, she settled down to work.

This power she has, to change ones emotions in the blink of an eye, is usually very underestimated. Most of the caprice deimons seem to have no intention to actively change that, which she supposed was a blessing in this case. No one realizes how much of their minds- their actions- are governed by emotion, and how unbelievably easy it is to turn that against them. If you let an ill wishing caprice deimon run loose it could go turn a government against its country, neighbor against neighbor, sister against brother all in the blink of an eye. It could leave destruction, sadness and death in its wake, spreading faster than a plague, all without lifting a finger.

Maina knew it was time, that it was necessary to counter now while everyone was distracted, and because of this she also knew what to do.

She thought for a second, who first? After watching the sponge hurtle thin pieces of itself into the pangolin and fling it up in the air like a rag doll, she decided on the rabbit. This attack took a different sort of focus, one that was full of iron and stone, that would not break for anything. She stared at the rabbit, watching for its emotional center, until a small colored flame appeared in its head. Emotions were visualized differently for every deimon, and it often said something about their own personalities. She captured that flame and reached inside it, sorting it into its respective parts, picking out almost every one. When she was done the fire was a dull gray color, as if all the life had been leeched out of it. She stored the rest of the colored fire in herself, minus the blue sadness, which she left in the rabbit partially to increase the efficiency and partially because she just hated the color blue. This was a state she liked to call the empty one, and it felt like nothing was worth it. Fighting, moving, talking, thinking, breathing, living, none of it was worth it. Nothing remains but an empty soon to be lifeless shell, and as the breath faded from the rabbit's lungs and the red from its eyes the grass around it began to smoke and return to fire. The rabbit slumped to the ground unconscious as the flames closed their hungry jaws in around it.

Behind the barrier, Alya smiled sadly. She knew Maina hated this attack, but they chose it for its effectiveness and speed, in addition to the ability to save the affected party later down the line if possible. That should keep her satisfied enough for now. Alya turned her attention back to the rest of the battlefield. She grinned, "Things have begun to heat up, no?" After laughing to herself she send a wave of emotion that could only be described as the feeling you get when you've just helped someone, somewhat akin to pride down the connection between her and Maina.

Maina laughed while she turned towards the phoenix and the sponge. She didn't like the sponge's motion. back and forth as if there was some secret purpose behind it. The wave of pride from Alya gave light to a risky plan. She stared at the phoenix watching until the flame appeared inside it. Reaching in she grabbed it, but instead of taking away emotions she increased them, all of the joy and pride of living and the adrenaline, especially the adrenaline of flying, and as a phoenix tends to do, being reborn from ashes. The only thing she took was fear, which she threw to the fire where it created a patch of smoking air upon contact. This was a limit breaker, one that would let you preform superhuman(or animal) stunts and for a short period of time release the hidden potential inside of them. However after the moment of power it breaks the one who used it down because the strain on their body was too great, tearing muscles and ligaments, and eventually bursting the heart. She hoped the phoenix would use it well, grateful that there was fire to create its ashes just below.

The Third Movement

Teddy takes in his surroundings from his position on the wall. Pyrelight continues to hover above dousing the factory in radiation. That needs to be dealt with, he thinks as he plans to make another move towards the phoenix. Suddenly he remembers the fifth deimon in the fight who had seemed the least dangerous in the beginning, but had been keeping their head down so far, Maina.

Teddy scans the room as quickly as he can. He catches sight of the porcupine on one of the raised platforms just in time to watch her drain the life force of Agrajag who slumps to the floor as the grass around him reverts back to flames.

I have to act now or I won't last long enough to act again.

He sees the sorceror Alya smile as Maina pauses, presumably waiting for a command. It is this moment Teddy chooses to strike. Performing a similar manuever to the shot he had taken at Pyrelight in the very beginning of the Rumble, he launches four 1 g pieces of himself in a diamond formation towards Maina at 2000 ft/s.

Alya laughs, unaware of the doom hurtling towards her deimon. Then, as Maina turns to check on Teddy's position, the shots hit her directly in the face and neck. Their diamond pattern making it impossible to dodge all of them. They rip through her leaving traces of acid.

Well, Teddy quickly surmises, better her than me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The fire not having been nearly as bad as he had predicted Syril Dawntreader removes his blindfold just in time to watch his deimon spring into action. That timing was perfect, Syril contemplated, almost as if he had been waiting for her to pause to take her out.

This was entirely possible as it had been exactly what he himself had been doing, but Dawntreader fully expected to have to order Teddy to switch his focus from Pyrelight again. It was a good thing too. There was no telling what Maina might have done in the next second.

"Great initiative. Keep it up." Syril looked at the bodies of the three defeated deimons. Agrajag would probably have been fine with the help of some Caprice-Umbration therapy deimons. Heck even Seth could probably heal him. Those other two though, Maina and Daril, are just being kept alive by the lethality suppressing magic.

He glances at the Deimon Master I wonder how he is doing that without a summon. Could he be a deimon himself? He would have to be pretty powerful.

On second thought, there is no way he would be able to hide that from this many sorcerors. Probably.

Dawntreader looks over to Val. I wonder what his plan is. Has he just been waiting for us all to take each other out? Ha. 1 on 1 against a radience deimon. This feels familiar, but this time I don't have Xiuhcoatl. Instead I have Teddy at under half power. I doubt he can afford to loose more than 6 more grams of mass and still retain conciousness even if he doesn't feel pain.

"Well then," Syril shouts as he turns to the crowd of spectators. "Shall we finish this?!!"

lifeless shell, and as the breath faded from the rabbit's lungs and the red from its eyes the grass around it began to smoke and return to fire. The rabbit slumped to the ground unconscious as the flames closed their hungry jaws in around it.
Well then... I've got an unstable internet connection and I looking at it this is probably the only way Agrajag was going to die in this fight. So maybe that should just be cannon. That being said, I might as well make a bit post that takes the true power of Agrajag into consideration and show how the fight would have been over in a few seconds if Agrajag was in the right mood. (He's never in the right mood)

TAKING IT FROM THE TOP

The crowd cheered as the Deimon Master ended his speech. A smile, a flick of his cane and the fight was begun. Five combatants there were in total, though the crowd's attention was drawn to one. The magnificent balefire-pheonix, bright green radioactive flame in the shape of a bird. Next of note would be the defensive looking pangolin and porcupine shaped deimons. Yet there were five combatants in this fight. The small rabbit shaped Agrajag and a rock made up the last two combatants.

Agrajag was insane both in sanity and in ability. The instability of both his metal state and his powers made summoning him a risk to the summoners health but since the deimon master had proven his ability to ensure the safety of spectators, Tee felt the level of risk was well within acceptable parameters.

As soon as the fight became the rock, which turned out to be a fast moving sponge, made the first action. Splitting a piece of itself off and using it as a deadly projectile. Meanwhile the pheonix bathed the battle ground in harmful radiation. Every deimon was active, making their move, except one. Agrajag stood still in the middle of the battlefield. Slowly the motion around him started slowing down.

Soon everything had come to a stop. The crowd looked on perplexed. The pheonix was just hovering there motionless. The same expression on its face. It appeared as if time had stopped but Tee knew better. Time wasn't mearly stopped, time was broken. The small rabbit Agrajag took a moment to sniff at each deimon in turn. As his little snout booped the tip of Pyrelight's tail, the majestic pheonix started to dissipate into confetti. So it was with the other deimons. As soon as the last deimon was confettized, time appeared to flow normally and the field was sprayed with confetti.

The crowd was stunned, unsure of what they had just witnessed. Then the Deimon Master made an annoucement.
"We have a winner!"
The crowd erupted in cheers and whistles.

Agrajag looked straight at Tee, but the little rabbits powers were still contained within the arena. Tee hastened to un-summon Agrajag just in case the Deimon master decided to lower the barrier sooner than expected. As soon as the rabbit was gone, the confetti started to move. The confetti reformed into the four deimons. Does Agrajag win count?

---------------------------------------

Fire.
There was fire everywhere.
And while the crowd looked alarmed at the fiery arena, Val couldn't help grinning like an idiot...
Let there be fire...

---------------------------------------

Pyrelight dodged just in time to avoid being knocked out of the sky by the flying pangolin. She soon spotted the origin of the unconventional (and probably uplanned) attack: it was that grey sponge thingy again...
But suddenly she picked a familiar scent: burning flesh... Indeed, the small, unconscious rabbit was being devoured by the flames...

Then she felt it.
Something was happening to her. She looked around, and saw the porcupine focusing on her. And she heard a voice in her head... Pyrelight! Help! ...it was... her? Not the porcupine. No. It was the last time she heard her voice. The last time she saw her. The One who Cares...
Velvet...

She felt the surge of emotions taking over. Was Velvet alive ? What did Maina do ? Was it... her..?
But in the blink of an eye, the porcupine was shot by the firesponge.

Anger and adrenaline took over. She needed to take this thing down. Now.
She needed to get out of sight, but how do you hide a brightly-glowing, large green bird ?
With even brighter flames.

She banked sharply left and swiftly flew to the far side of the arena. Then, just as quickly, she dove, right into the fire.
Well, not exactly into the fire, but just above, accumulating energy but not turning to ashes. Not yet.
She soon spotted the grey stone, barely distinguishable from the wall, but it was there.
She took all the energy she had, all the radiation she had accumulated in the past, and all her anger towards that damn velocity deimon, and focused it into a single, most powerful blast of deadly radiation she had ever created, aimed straight towards Teddy.
The green and gold beam flew across the arena in the fraction of a second. The sponge soon began to melt under the power of the atomic desintegration, loosing pieces of himself.
Half a second later, it was already over.
Unconscious, Teddy fell to the flames below.
And so did Pyrelight, exhausted, as her body began to ache terribly, no longer able to maintain flight.
She soon turned to ashes in the blazing fire.

---------------------------------------

Val looked in amazement at what his deimon just did. That was one of the most powerful acts of magic he had ever witnessed!
"Well that was unexpected..."
The crowd looked around, amazed but confused. Were the five deimons out? Who won?

---------------------------------------

After just a dozen seconds, Pyrelight's ashes began to glow bright green, taking the vague shape of a bird...
And as any phoenix, she rised gracefully from her ashes, flying all around the arena, chirping and singing her joy to be alive.
But she quickly turned around. What happenned to Maina ?

As Syril spoke, Teddy watched Pyrelight carefully. He saw the bird dive into the flames. Phoenix + Fire = Death he calculated. The math just makes sense, but it doesn’t have to be a final death. Oh no. He remembers Syril’s idea from the beginning of the fight. That could work here.

He buds as quickly as he can. Producing four buds which he then scatters. Teddy stays behind keeping the phoenixes focus. The blast comes instantly.

They say at death your brain moves quickly enough for your life to flash before your eyes. The same is also true at birth.

The buds awaken.

β€œHi, I am Teddy”

β€œNo, I am Teddy”

β€œI am Teddy 1.”

β€œI think that was Teddy 1.”

The four continue to discuss as Pyrelight finishes his blast.

β€œHi,” Syril projects to the Teddys. β€œCould you kill that deimon before he falls into the flames?”

β€œOf course”

β€œNo problem”

β€œCertainly”

β€œDuh”

Teddy 2 blips over to Pyrelight like a light beam and slams his falling body up into the air. He disintegrates from the effort and the residual heat emanating from the bird.

Teddy 3 builds on the work started by Teddy 2, and slams Pyrelight over towards a non burning platform. He disintegrates as well.

Teddy 4 quickly propels himself through the wing of Val’s deimon rendering it completely unable to fly even if it could build up the energy.

The acid burns Pyrelight and she soon passes out from pain and exhaustion.

Teddy 5 thinks to himself. Aha! I win! I get to be Teddy!

β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”--------------------------------------------------------------------

Syril Dawntreader stares at the sponge that is now Teddy. He knows that soon the memories will return, and he will he berated for putting his deimon in a situation where the budding plan actually had to be used. But for now he thinks to himself. I was right! It totally worked.

Oh. And I guess I won too.

Syril Dawntreader removes the black cowboy hat from his head. Gesturing grandly with it, he takes his final bow.

β€œThe Symphony of Violence is complete!”

I'd like to put in a response from back a bit ago since I wasn't on while Syril and Val were fighting.
also pain is an emotion look it up if you don't believe me
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Maina had been peering out from behind the metal beam she had positioned herself behind on the scaffolding while she was working on helping Pyrelight, and this was the only reason she was still in one piece. A whooshing noise had appeared out of nowhere, and she was pulling back behind the beam again when there was a thunk of sponge against metal, a groaning sound as the metal bent, and then searing pain all along the side of her face. She screamed as she flew backwards a ways hitting the wall with a thump.

Alya screamed as well, clutching her face as she dropped to her knees, tears leaking through her eyes. This was the problem with creating a stronger link, everything transfers not just her commands. She knew their time was almost up, but not just yet, so she forced her face out of her hands, red lines running down the side where she had scratched at it and continued to watch.

Maina had seen what this sponge had done to the pangolin, how the acid slowly ate it alive. "If I'm going down you're going down with me" she growled and let everything out. Sudden intense pain filled the thoughts and bodies of every inhabitant in the arena, crippling pain as the deimons felt Maina's face disintegrating like it was their own. She screamed again, the primal sound of a dying creature, and increased the output past even what she was feeling. She knew she would drop unconscious soon, but the pain they were feeling could prove fatal by overloading their systems with shock and causing organ and nerve failure.

Screaming could be heard from the phoenix now, the two deimons creating an orchestra of seething sounds that seemed to reach out an steal a piece of your soul. The sponge however seemed unaffected for some strange reason, almost as if it couldn't feel pain.

Alya yelled to Maina "Just get it to multiply! Now!" Maina rolled slightly so her remaining eye could see the sponge. She grabbed the flame inside him and frantically threw out everything but greed. She was sobbing now, her vision blurred and hazy, starting to go black around the edges. She whispered into that greed, the greed to multiply, to cover as much space as possible, more, more, more.

Suddenly everything stopped, the screaming, the pain, the world seemed to slow down as the phoenix fell to the ground, and maina fell with it. She had slumped over, the last of her strength gone as her face started to collapse in on itself and it was only a matter of time until the rest of her followed, barely being held alive by the Deimon Masters magic. The phoenix had fallen into the patch of ground where the fear had hit, dissipating the fire previously, and because of this had no ashes to arise from. The sponge hovered for a second before grinning and splitting into hundreds of fragments "more! more! more!" it shouted, as they spread all around the arena. In their haste to cover more ground some of them ran into the fire and burned, some of them ran into beams, but in their constant ricocheting the acid coating them ate through the beams and the scaffolding until the spectators were just looking at bits of crushed sponge under metal, unconscious deimons barely hanging onto life, and a raging fire that showed no signs of stopping anytime soon.

The crowd was silent. The summoners looked at each other, and at Alya, still on her knees, her face as pale as the moon tokens they were fighting for. What had just happened?

Pyrelight was laying in agony on the ground, her body failing but not quite dying.
She wanted to die... why wasn't she dying... but soon the pain replaced all rational thought.
---------------------------------------
What just happenned ?
Val was looking at his phoenix, unable to understand what Maina just did.
Instead he just stood there, hoping for nature to do its job.
"A phoenix does not need fire to revive. It simply accelerates the process. Originally, phoenixes eventually turned to ashes when they were of old age or heavily wounded. It took a minute for the bird to become ash, and then around a dozen more for it to rebirth. The only way to truly kill a Phoenix is to cut its head from his body. This way the magical connection between the heart and the mind is broken, and it cannot revive."
That was what Val had read about phoenixes in an old library in Dustmark.
Pyrelight should have turned to ashes by now, even without fire...
But she wasn't truly dying. The Deimon Master's magic was preventing that. And by preventing her death, he was blocking the rebirth process...

Val slumped to the ground, accepting his defeat.

Matchbook City may need a new namesake, after tonight...

Daril had been the first to fall. His brave aerial assault may have resulted in his defeat at the hands (buds?) of Teddy, but his timely warning to his unlikely ally Maina allowed her to escape the flames just in the nick of time. In turn, Maina was able to use her power to its terrifying extent. Her first victim, Agrajag, simply slumped over as though utterly exhausted. The only sign that he was down for the count was the dissipation of his reality-warping field, which led to his quick near-death within the surrounding flames.

Meanwhile, the constant waves of deadly radiation from Pyrelight were beginning to take their toll. Maina, with the aid of her larger mass and emotional fortitude, had barely seemed to notice the effects. Teddy, on the other hand, had begun to waver erratically, becoming less precise with his motions due to the dizziness and disorientation associated with severe radiation sickness. Perhaps this is what saved Maina from the lethal diamond-shaped strike Teddy had launched in Maina's direction. Two of the projectiles veered off course, missing her entirely; one struck the I-beam she was sheltered against, while the last barely grazed the side of her face.

Alya and Maina's scream had been a shock to the already-nervous crowd. Almost immediately, however, their attention shifted to Pyrelight, who had swooped into the flames just after witnessing Maina being struck. The otherworldly beauty of Pyrelight's green glow mingling with the raging inferno below briefly transfixed the audience, just in time to witness a blinding flash of green and gold that outshone all the matches of Matchbook.

As the shining spectacle dwindled to nothing, the audience had burst into cheers and applause. Their celebration was short-lived, however, as three streaks of gray blurred towards Pyrelight, one by one by one, knocking her backwards onto a metal platform above the flames.

The screaming hadn't stopped, however.

Maina, still screaming with the pain of the acid eating at her face, focused her attention on the only combatant still conscious: the last remaining bud of Teddy. Within moments, the minuscule gray lump that remained of Teddy had begun splitting again, and again, and again, each new bud splitting smaller and smaller, zooming this way and that. Had more mass remained of Teddy when the process began, the entire factory would have been reduced to rubble by his ricocheting projectiles. As it was, however, the tiny fragments had barely enough mass to dent the machinery and scaffolding. Not long had passed before each new bud was no more than a single cell, quickly destroyed upon high-velocity impact with any surface, or burned away in the flames he himself had started.

As the last visible remnants of Teddy dispersed into nothing, Maina's screaming had finally ceased, as she slipped into unconsciousness from the pain.

The Deimon Master, untouched in the midst of all this chaos on his platform ladder perch, raised his arms and shouted for the crowd to hear above the flames:

"And so ends the Second Amathæan Umbra Rumble! By virtue of being the last deimon able to battle, victory in this Rumble Royale goes to Maina! Summoner Alya Nathair, I hereby award you these four power ranks, as a reflection of Maina's prowess in besting her four opponents."
With a sweeping wave of the Deimon Master's cane, an invisible breeze snuffed out the roaring fire engulfing the factory floor. Still shaken by the pain she received from her link to Maina, Alya staggered forward to receive her prize. Upon handing her the four moon tokens, the Deimon Master addressed the crowd once more.

"Let tonight be a lesson to all of you. No force in this world can compare with the sheer, unbridled power afforded by magic. Take this lesson with you, wherever you may go in this world. Keep the flame of magic potential burning within your hearts. Let it draw you towards the next Umbra Rumble. There are still infinite possibilities left to explore. Good night, and safe travels."

Just so everyone knows, it's going to be a little while until I kick off the next round of Umbra Rumble. Last week took a lot out of me for a number of reasons, and keeping up with Umbra Rumble happened to be one of them. As much as I love running this event, it's mentally taxing to balance it with all the other demands on my time right now.

For the sake of keeping myself well-rested down the stretch in order to maintain the level of quality I've tried to achieve so far, I'm putting Umbra Rumble on hold for now. I'm hoping it'll only take one week or so to get myself back in top form. As soon as I feel ready, I'll start up the next round as usual.

In the time being, everyone is welcome to submit new or old deimons to me via conversation, like usual. I probably won't approve or deny any until the next Creation Phase starts, however.

I look forward to resuming Umbra Rumble as soon as I reasonably can!

Here's a status report for all you rumblers out there: I feel much better about my current workload, so a resumption of Umbra Rumble activities after this upcoming midterm week isn't out of the question. However, if I do start a new rumble in the near future, expect phases 2 and 4 to last considerably longer than usual.

Just letting everyone know that I haven't forgotten about Umbra Rumble. I simply want to make sure I have everything well in hand before I start another one. Thanks for your patience, summoners!

The Creation Phase has begun!

Submit your deimons to Deimon Master Avidro using the Conversation feature!

Remember, deimons must have the following traits to be approved:
  • Animal shape
  • Umbration
  • One (1) magic talent
  • Name
Feel free to add a personality, physical description, backstory, or any other extra information.

I would love to give constructive criticism, but as Deimon Master, my role is simply to facilitate your own efforts at defining each umbra. If I imposed my own ideas on how the umbras work, it would only serve to stifle your creativity. As long as I can see the logic behind a particular talent deriving from a particular umbration, you'll get my approval on that front. If the logic is fuzzy or hard to understand, I may ask for clarification on the link between the talent and umbration before I approve it.

In other words, if your goal is to get a better idea of how Cresnovians understand the umbras, I can't help you. If your goal is to get a better idea of the possibilities each umbration holds, from our own limited AmathΓ¦an perspective, then I would recommend submitting deimons that, in your view, push the boundaries of what might be possible through a given umbration. You might surprise yourself!​


Phase 2 begins Sunday, January 13th, 2019 at 7:00 PM CST.

ATTENTION:
There has been a minor change to the Creation Phase rules. See the quoted change below, as reflected in the Official Rules in the first post of the thread.

Even if the Creation Phase is over, players are encouraged to submit new deimons to the Deimon Master for future Rumbles. create new deimons, but they must be submitted to the Deimon Master during a future Creation Phase to be eligible for approval.

The original intent of requiring deimon approval during the Creation Phase was to ensure that only summoners who were willing and able to participate in the current Umbra Rumble would have their deimons selected. However, the old rule, as stated, allowed for anyone to submit deimons for approval at any time, whether or not the most recent Creation Phase had ended. This ran the risk of summoners' deimons being entered that were submitted long before the next Rumble took place, which meant there was no guarantee that said summoners would be available to participate. As such, the new rule requires all deimon submissions to take place during a Creation Phase.​
