“When you light a candle, you also cast a shadow.”
--Ursula K. Le Guin
The encompassing dark encroaches all. You could feel it writhing and grasping aimlessly. Screams from that pit gnaws at you from the utter fear welling from the very walls of your stomach. From the dim light emanating from the lighter, you could barely see it.
Fangs. Sharper than any razor edge, could be seen as its skeletal maw opens wide, eager to sink into flesh. Its tail aimlessly sways side by side. As if contemplating how to best sample the walking piece of meat that is you.
There's no need to use the lighter for it, you know what this is. A Horror
, the evil that continues to feed upon humanity. Your very bane. But you know duty calls you to slay it. Trepidation crawls through your very spine, teeth closed grimly shut. You--
[ ] -hold up your sword to assume the basic stance.
[ ] -aim the deadly point of your halberd, ready to sink itself into its accursed demonic flesh.
[ ] -heft up your axe diagonally above your head with its wicked edge keening against the dim light from your madou lighter.
[ ] -start spinning the chains of your flail side by side you to generate maximum force.
[ ] Write-in.
First time for me trying out a Quest. So I'll do my best to make it nice as I can. Critiques to improve would be great too. Also I'll be posting up the next reply tomorrow hopefully.
