High in the mountains, somewhat southeast of town, a pass leads through the mountains to the desert beyond.

The pass leads to an arid, high-altitude valley deep within the rocky crags.  Precious little rain or snow ever falls to moisten the dusty ground, and there are no plants to speak of.

At one end, an imposing technological fortress sits in ruins.  Once built by an eccentric from the Town, it succumbed to the endless intrigues that surround the place.

The debris of the fortress still holds a smattering of advanced weaponry, including a single intact energy cannon of some variety.

Six zerglings hop eagerly toward the metal walls and begin pounding at a gap in an attempt to make it wider and get at the people inside.

Krystal tries a lightningbolt next, which also reflects from the hard polished carapace of the insectlike zerg.

die already!

Something bellows again from the Town side of the mountains, and four serpentine creatures crest the pass. Krystal calls down to the others

More on the way. Different things, though.

Fox-Exachix darts up to near her and hmms.

The wall shudders from the zergling's continued poundings as the four hydralisks approach. The sturdy alloy of the wall proves difficult for the zerglings to penetrate, however.

Krystal calls up an ephemeral swarm and sends the flitting shadows to rend a zergling. They do rather little damage, but somewhat more than her last two spells had.

I need to try something less direct, I think.

Exachix shifts to hybrid, and removes his crystal from his neck. He smiles.

"Maybe."

He concentrates.

Krystal summons a 2nd edition Ice Storm (ice sheet mode) in the air above a zergling, and watches as it is most gratifyingly squashed flat with a crunching sound.

The remaining five continue to pound and the hydralisks move into the lit area near the wall. They hiss and flap gill-like appendages.

Exachix's Crystal glows a red as he casts Fireball. The Crystal helps though, so It's about half as powerful again.

Three of the zerglings crisp nicely and fall into smouldering heaps. The remaining two hop about angrily.

The four hydralisks fire on Krystal and Exachix. Krystal is hit by two spines and tumbles backwards off the wall in surprise.

Something big crests the top of the pass and bellows in elephantine rage.

Exachix is hit by one in an arm and curses, before running down tho heal Krystal.

"Myobu! We need out!"

He looks around and eyes the cannon, if he can, humming.

Krystal broke her arm in the fall, and the spines punctured her right lung, but Exy's spell gets her back on her feet.

Myobu slices a makeshift door into the metal wall with the lightsabres and vivisects the zergling who came to investigate.

Bloody hell! Get away from the wall!

Myobu turns and runs toward the center of the compound at top speed. Krystal does her best to scramble to her feet and follow.

Exachix follows turning breifly to cast Flame Wall, before running.

A massive impact shakes the wall violently, denting it inward and causing a fractured crease above the gap where the zerglings had been working.

Two of the ultralisk's tusks even manage to pierce completely through. With a series of angry grunts and mighty tugs, the thing pulls free. A giant yellow eye peers at the group through the tusk-hole before it backs off for another charge.

Exachix curses and thinks, before looking to see if Krystal is ok. He hmms and casts Flame Strike at where he thinks the ultralisk is.

Krystal is annoyed, but unharmed.

A loud and enraged bellow indicates that the ultralisk did not appreciate Exachix' spell. It hurls itself at the wall again and the crack opens wider. As it backs away this time, the hydralisks come up to the opening and shoot at the group.

Krystal promptly disintegrates one of them.

Exachix's arms begin to 'burn' as it were... as he casts Flame Wall at the opening.

The hydralisks darts fail to cross the flame wall, and they back away again anyway as the ultralisk charges a third time.

This rends a large gap in the wall (though not enough to allow the huge thing by, and the zerglings and hydralisks enter the courtyard.

There, they mill around in front of the flame wall, the hydralisks firing pointlessly into the flames. Krystal disintegrates another hydralisk.

Exachix growls and Flame Strikes something.

Exachix flames the last two hydralisks and the lone zergling.

With a thunderous roar, the ultralisk blasts through the wall and stands towering over the group. A patch on its back shows only mild scortching, and it seems completely unimpressed by the wall of fire.

(( Didn't we have Aiki here? ))

((Yes.
*yells* AIKI!))

Exachix hmms and casts Implosion on it.

It blinks and snorts at Exachix, stubbornly refusing to implode. (( Though it was remarkably tempting to shower one and all with ultralisk goo)) The thing appears confused, as if expecting a rather different set of targets inside.

Krystal whispers to Exachix

It doesn't know what to make of us.

Exachix smiles.

"Oh good."

Although his flaming does seems to be located entirely on his lower arms.

"It is rather large."

He smiles.

((Must... resist.... Protoss... assault...))

(( Oh, but why? Wouldn't that add more fun? ))

Krystal fades incorporeal and slips into the building.

Myobu looks at Aiki

It seems a bit overlarge to attack directly.

The ultralisk snorts and turns around several times, as if looking for something.

At a grating noise from the keep, it turns abruptly to see a large turret laboriously grind against sandy grit to point an unpleasantly large tube at the thing. It wastes no time and charges the keep violently: the people outside momentarily forgotten at the appearance of a recognizeable threat.

((Oh yes... so it would >=) ))

Exachix hmms and watches.

Aiki is completely lost as to what is going on at this point; the foxes crowd Krystal, following her and giving her a general helping paw.

The Canii looks for a friendly face, whimpering upon finding none. He climbs atop Argen and the two take to the air. From one of his bags of holding he produces a simple hand-crossbow and begins attempting to pick the things off from the air.

The zerglings that have gathered outside are honestly not impressed by a hand crossbow.

Myobu sees him on top of the wall and calls to him

Aiki, over here! The big thing is about to get...

His sentence is cut off as Krystal and the little foxes trigger the massive ion cannon. With a thunderous roar and a blinding flash, a blue sphere like a small star flies from the tube and hurls the ultralisk back through the gap in the wall and down the entire length of the valley.

The zerglings outside hop and chitter in consternation.
