In his frenzied state Zar instinctively tries to evade to the right as the flames engulf him but it was to little to late. The blue fire easily finds the gaps in his armour and licks at his flesh with its demonic heat, burning and searing. Zar felt virtually nothing of the attack, but it did make him more angry as he'd been attacked with magical fire and not a piece of steel...

"Rraaaagghhhh"

The Crimson blade snakes forward eager to drink the blood of the cowardly warlord.


+++++++++++++++++

Dodge https://orokos.com/roll/560149 = 71 vs 18 (fail)
Standard Att https://orokos.com/roll/560150 = 28 vs 73 (+10 frenzy, +10 standard att) = 6 DoS (+1 adroit)
Damage https://orokos.com/roll/560151 = 21 dam, Pen 9 (Power Field, Warp Weapon, Felling (2))

Zar comes in with a quick strike that Korick tries to side step.

Korick Dodge: 50 (2 DoF)

Korick Force Field: 93 (4 DoF)

The side step is slow and the force field doesn't deflect this time as the strike lands true. The mutated flamer arm is cleanly severed and it goes flying as blood sprays around. Korick reels back in pain but he isn't out of the fight yet.

Korick WP Roll: 59 (1 DoS)

A bolt of bright light comes screaming at Zar.

[If not dodged... well you'll see.]

Korick WP Roll: 91 (3 DoF)

After the bolt leaves Korick's hand he tries to summon another power. A burst of flames erupts around him but it quickly dissipates.

The raging Zar doesn't react to severed arm as it falls to the floor, his enemy was still on his feet so Zar is driven forward eager for the kill and straight into the bolt of light...

As the bolt comes racing into Zar the Crimson Blade compels Zar to but itself between himself and the bolt of energy. The blade and the bolt collide and a massive rippling warp wave engulfs Zar. Everything bends and turns at angles that aren't possible in reality. The blade melts in his hands as the arena around Zar disappears into the ripples and Zar finds himself on...

[Continued from Hunting Grounds (Islands of The Ragged Helix).]

The pieces of glass come spitting out of the shard and reassemble themselves into Zar. He finds himself in an abandoned quarter of the Shattered Moons. It's old, dusty, with a few pieces of furniture and weapons scattered about.

There's a skeleton on the ground. Most of its bones smashed to powder or shattered from a great force. It's head is missing.

[Need a -10 Willpower roll.]

Willpower Test:
 

Zar took a moment as his stomach settled, the experience of portal not something he wanted to go through again. As he did so he took in the surroundings and considered what to do next. He needed to find Korick. He considered his previous patron here but he supposed he was considered to have lost his match so would he even be wanted now. How long had he been away? Much might have happened since the arena.

He needed to find out the lay of the land.

Once reality had reasserted its self Zar spends a moment more closely examining the skeleton wondering what may have killed it before heading out to explore. He would find someone to talk to or kill depending on their worth.

Zar examines the skeleton more closely. The missing head says who ever did this was a follower of Khorne at least. The powered and shattered bones pointed to something heavily concussive that did the damage. Something like a thunder hammer or a sonic weapon.

With his curiosity sated he finds the exit. The door needs some help being loosened up but it gives way to Zar's strength and his comes spitting out into the interior of one of the Shattered Moons pieces.

Zar finds himself in the middle of heavy crowds that weren't present the last time he was here. He then notes banners decking the halls and ceilings. The markings on them are of the Chaos Gods. All four of them.

Grabbing someone nearby Zar leans that the Game of the Gods is to happen soon. The best human fighters were to compete for their god and claim one of the Shattered Moons most prized titles beyond being the pit champion. The prized servant.

[Follow up questions or new ones can be asked. The guy Zar has pulled from the crowd seems to be some lowly pit fighter.]

Glory awaited. Perhaps Korick would fight.

"Come. Lets drink and I will question you further. Take me to a suitable drink hole."

It did not take long to find one, there were likely many in the area. The drinks were of course on Zar so he ensures his new friend gets whatever he likes. Within reason. Once they are settled at a table Zar will take a long draft from his Wych skull cup.

Before turning his funeral eyes upon the pit fighter.

"How do I get into this Game of the Gods?"


Zar will listen to answers as patiently as he can, but he was keen to ask of Korick, the Warlord better still be alive.

"Have you heard anything of Warlord Korick, do you know where his domain is?"

The fighter happily takes the offer of drinks. The two sit down in a literal hole in the wall bar.

"Game of the Gods is by invitation only. Rumor has it though that patrons can pay to get their fighters in or fighters themselves can do the same. A hefty price I'm sure."

The fighter chokes on some of his drink at the mention of Korick, "Ah, yeah. After his fight with that... Var he scurried off to lick his wounds. No one's seen him since but there's talk that he's going to be in the Game of the Gods. I still wonder where that Var ended up. Some say he's dead but I swear with that last attack something weird happened. Did you catch that fight?"

Perfect, Zar had to get into the Game of the Gods. It would be all the sweeter wi th Korick in the competition. Zar snarls at the fighter at the mispronounced name “The fighters name is Zar. My name is Zar and I will see Koricks skull adorning my armour.”

Ever impetuous and not one to overly think things through Zar stands. He had little money although the power armour might be worth a bit, but would it be enough for a buy in? He should try and meet with the white clothed lord, that seemed like his best bet.

“Spread the word. Zar is back”

With that Zar leaves to seek out his previous patron. If that didn’t work he would seek out over combatants and start killing them until someone did invite him.

The fighter is dumb struck as Zar tells him who he is and as Zar is leaving the bar he can hear the man yelling, "I knew I was right! Zar's back, baby!"

++++

Zar let his instincts and his own recollection guide him back to the quarters of White, his previous patron.

Inside was exactly like Zar remembered. A spartan room, a single chair, and in it was White and over his shoulder was that Incubi and over the other was the power armored Ork Nob Goldy.

White was busy talking to a group but Goldy spots him, "Zar? Hey, boz, Zar ain't dead! I totally didn't bet against you, bud. Thought you werez going to tear Korick a new one!"

White stands up and motions for the group in front of him to part, "Well isn't this a pleasant surprise." White approaches Zar with his Incubi close behind, "Everyone thought you were dead. There was no trace of you. You have changed though." White says motioning to his face and arms.

"What happened to the blade?" The Incubi asks and it was the first time Zar can think of it talking.

"Oh, I'm still here." Crimson internally says.

"I still plan to" Zar replies to the big orc.

Zar had indeed changed a lot, from the blessings of Khorne to the blades merging. He holds up his clawed hands, metal infused with his flesh "I am still the servant." he simply replies.

"I know not how, but Koricks sorcery sent me to Furia. I bested what was put before me and found a way to return as we still hunger for Koricks head. I have heard there is a grand competition..."


It was obvious what Zar wanted.

"I got bets on you this time." Goldy says with a toothy grin.

"Yes, the Game of the Gods. You want to enter to fight Korick? Since everyone thought you to be dead an invitation was out of the question. So I'll have to spend a pretty penny to get you in." White says, "Ink, is he worth that sort of investment?" White asks his Incubus.

"If he can take me then he's worth it." Ink grumbles.

White looks at Zar, "A fight to first blood? You draw from Ink then I'll get you in. If he draws from you... well, we'll figure something out."

Zars eyes narrow, a fight to first blood did not suit him at all, not that he'd back down from a fight. A fight until one of them took the others head would be much better. First blood would often go to whichever was the quicker and as Zar sized up the Incubus he guessed it wouldn't be himself.

He was skilled on defence though. "That is not my preferred victory condition as you can imagine, but I accept."

If he failed he wondered if he could sell the location of the vault. We'd see.

"Mine either Khornite but the boss has other ideas for you." Ink says he grabs his klaive.

Ink:
 

Zar was right. Speed was the deciding factor when it came to first blood. The servant's speed was blinding, almost Dark Eldar like, and it catches Ink off guard. The claws get a good gash in the Incubus' armor and draws blood.

Ink touches his wound and looks at his own blood then at Zar, "He's worth it."

"We've always been worth it." Crimson says with chuckle.

"Give me some time to collect what I need to get you in." White says, "That power armor you are totting around. Are you going to use it in the competition. If not it will be a great help in paying for your way in."

Zar looks at the blood on his claw; a victory was a victory and it opened up an opportunities to spill Koricks blood. It did feel a little hollow though, the brief fight didn't feel like a really challenge and he wondered how interesting a proper fight with Ink would be.

"I've acquired some Khorne blessed armour so I've been looking for a place to put this."
Zar replies to White gesturing at the power armour. "It is well worth Koricks head. It is yours to do with as you wish."

It took a few days and some waiting but eventually White came back with good news. Zar was in. The time for revenge was now.

However, this wasn't a standard fight in the pits. This was the Game of the Gods. A lot more showmanship and festivities went into it. That meant the fighting had to wait for now.

For Zar and the other fighters it meant they was to be a big showing. An introduction to the competition and its competitors.

At the biggest arena in all of the Shattered Moons Zar was stuck in a holding area. In it were the other fighters and their bodyguards. Well, the bodyguards were there to protect their charges but also to make sure fights weren't to break out.

For Zar that meant Goldy and Ink were with him.

Across the area Zar can see him. Korick, with his Rubric Marine guards and suited up in his power armor. His arm that Zar cut off has been replaced with a finely made mechanical one. The Blue Devil stares at Zar from behind his death mask.

"The man is such a coward. He won't even show his face here. No matter, we'll see that face hanging off our belt when it's all said and done." Crimson says with acid in his voice.

Korick says something to one of his Rubric Marines. One of them produces an icon of Khorne. It shows it to Zar before it crushes it into dust and dumps the remains on the floor.

Korick snaps his fingers and the remains burst into flames and melt away into nothingness.

"You were already ash! Nothing of worth or want! I will burn you away until there is nothing left! Tzeetch will see to it!" Korick yells through his vox speaks at Zar.

Zar turns to Korick. His clawed hands remove his spiked helm revealing his bull-like visage; smoke billows from his nostrils and his eyes burn yellow.

The crimson servant has changed much since Korick last saw him, metal has merged with the flesh of his arms and he is now wears a deep crimson armour covered in spikes.

"You have tried that already and failed for I have returned." Zar shouts for all to hear "Your magicks are nothing to me. I shall take your head and strip it of its flesh. I shall cover every inch of it in runes of Khorne. This spike is where I shall place your skull so you can watch me fight and kill for all the days that I have to come." Zar gestures at the largest spike on his right shoulder.

"Hear me!" Zar shouts to all around "I shall bath my claws in this wizards blood. I swear it for I am the Crimson servant!"

A man in blood red full plate laughs at Zar's remarks, "Not before I crush you with my hammer. Then I'll crush the wizard with it."

Korick takes his helmet off. One thing has changed about him. His once human eyes are now that of a birds.

"We're here with the most blood thirsty and talented killers of the Shattered Moons. If you want to see and fight me, servant. You will have to get to the top because that's where I'm going to be." Korick says.

Before Zar can get a word in there's an announcement that all fighters are to report to the arena. No guards and no funny business unless you want to end up in the warp fiend cages as a snack.

The fighters find themselves aligned along the center of the arena. The whole place was packed even though this wasn't a fight. Everyone wanted to see the competitors before they started to kill one another.

Each was fighter was introduced and Zar now knew who needed to die by his claws.

Lorron 'The Hammer': The man that laughed at Zar earlier. He wears old plate armor that is blood red. His helm bares the crest of Khorne and in he's resting his hands on his trusty thunder hammer.

Blood Moon Prince: A lithe man with minimal armor, a red colored power shield, and a sabre. On the shield the mark of Slaanesh is present for all to see.

Korick 'The Blue Devil': Zar needs no introduction to his nemesis.

Weevil: A Death Priest hailing for some planet called Mire. He smells of death and looks the part. However, by the blessings of Nurgle he stays upright and hungers for the innards of the slain. The rusted spear of his has gutted many in the arenas.

Myrmidon: The most normal looking man of the bunch except for the two khopesh sword he carries with him and the symbol of chaos undivided on his jet black armor..

Finally there was Zar 'The Crimson Servant'.

Ground rules were then laid out for the competition.

1. No warp power. This was a match of physical and martial prowess.
2. No force fields. Localized shields like on power shields are fine.

That was it. The first round pairings would begin shortly.

Zar mostly ignored the other combatants while he waited although he often found his gaze unintentionally drawn to Korick. He was surprised that there would be no warp powers allowed but that pleased him greatly. It would handicap Korick. Zar was not stupid enough to believe that he would be a walk over though.

Of the others Zar hoped he would also fight the Moon Prince so he could take the head of one of hated Slaanesh's servants. Failing that he hoped The Hammer did it instead. All for the glory of Khorne.

He was ready, encased in his spiked crimson plate with his power shield strapped to his back.

With the presentation and showmanship over the first drawing began.

The first fight was to be between Zar and Lorron 'The Hammer'. The second: Blood Moon Prince and Myrmidon. The third: Korick and Weevil.

To Zar's slight dismay the fights wouldn't begin till tomorrow. He could feel Crimson joining his disappointment and anger.

"Gather us here like show pieces but can't ruin the pretty faces till we're told so." Crimson grumbles.

Like that the fighters were herded out and told to report bright and early.

++++

Zar would have to stew for the rest of the day or he could go elsewhere in the Shattered Moons to relieve his anger.

[We can time skip to the fights or Zar could explore the Shattered Moons if wanted.]

The roar of the crowd was deafening even behind the arena doors. The thuds of fists and feet could be felt down to the bone. The want and need for spilled blood was inescapable.

"One fight at a time. Let's not get distracted by trying to reach Korick. We'll get to him in do time." Crimson says offering some rare advice.

The doors in front of Zar slowly open in front of him and he steps forth. He's greeted by a wall of sound created by the multi-storied stands of the arena. The amount of people was uncountable.

Cutting through the crowd noise was the announcer. He must of been using warp powers to do so as his voice was clear as if he was standing right next to Zar in a quiet room.

"Presenting Zar 'The Crimson Servant'! Once thought to have died in a bout with Korick but he has returned and seeks the title for Khorne."

The doors across from Zar open up and out steps Lorron.

"On the other side we have Lorron 'The Hammer'. One of the most decorated fighters in all of the Shattered Moons. He also seeks the title in the name of Khorne. So, today, you violent bastards and blood thirsty goons will be treated to some Khornite on Khornite crime. Two have entered but one will only leave the arena! Let the fight begin!"

[Roll for initiative!]


Lorron 'The Hammer':

Zar steps out on to the sands, he could feel the roar of the crowd in his bones. He looks around the arena for a moment, taking it in. It appeared to just be an open space, he would be wary for unseen hazards at least until he lost himself in the melee.

"I reach Korick through him." Zar points at Lorron as he replies to Crimson "I am focused, this is a worthy head to take" With that be bangs his fist into his chest plate a few times in salute to his opponent before starting to stalk towards him, claws are flexed and Zar tosses his head like a bull as he starts to pick up speed.

Lorron returns the salute as he bangs his thunder hammer across his armored chest.

Zar takes the initiative and is the first to move. Lorron doesn't seem to mind as he sits back letting Zar inch his way closer and closer.

As he closes the distance thick black smoke billows out from the Lorron's plated helm. Through the smoke red glowing eyes spring open as a primordial roar shakes the ground. Lorron takes off with the speed of a train, slow and steady picking up speed with every step.

Action:
 

Zar snorted and billowed out smoke in reply, he to started to charge but Lorron now had the momentum. Just before the two juggernaughts clashed Zar lost himself to his rage, the roar of the crowd was replaced by the hammering of his heart, each beat seeemed to scream “BLOOD, BLOOD, BLOOD…”

Khorne did not care which of the two fell, only that one of his champions would emerge stronger and that blood would be spilt and a skull would be taken. Be it The Crimson Servants or The Hammer.

Zar bashes aside the storm hammer, if he’d not been lost to his rage he would have noted the power behind it and that he really didn’t want to take more than a glancing blow. In reply Zar tries to rip into Lorron, his claws come from all angles seeking out gaps in his opponents plate armour.

Lorron 'The Hammer':
 

Lorron's skill with his hammer is evident as he uses it to deflect Zar's claws away. That and this thunder hammer was much easier to move around than a normal one.

Lorron 'The Hammer':
 

Lorron takes another swing but he stops short. It was a feint. He reverses the action bring the back end of the shaft up with his armored fist.
