Here it is, Episode 5!
I'm going to say one thing: I am very bad with procrastination.
Well? What are you waiting for?
About this creation
Three Demigods are being led through the forest by a deadly huntsman!
Timotheus, son of Apollo,
Yusauf, son of Apollo,
And Zimphex, son of Posieden.
Around the rocky path lay many bones and skeletons of fallen warriors...
Soon they came upon a small outpost, made out of the ruins of a fallen tower.
Zimphex seized his chance, and lunged off his horse, intending to escape!
An archer tries to stop him, but he iis no match for the powers of Poseidon!
His head struck the rocks, and he fell to the ground, dead.
Zimphex's horse ran away out of fear!
Suddenly, a war horn sounded, and three more huntsman came out of the bushes!
One charged at Zimphex,axe ready!
Yet Zimphex cut him down!
Yusuf tried helping by shooting arrows,
But then the leader lunged forward, spear poised to stab! He quickly tried to dodge it,
Yet he was not quick enough.
Timotheus: "Yusuf! NOOOO!!!"
He threw down his bow, and drew his sword, intending to fight to the death, to avenge his fallen companion!
Meanwhile, Zimphex is being pushed back by two other huntsman!
He knew he could not win this fight, so he fled into the trees.
Timotheus is fighting a valiant battle,
And pushes his enemy back!
Only to be joined by his two warriors!
Timotheus relaxes, and closes his eyes, accepting his death.
A blinding flash of light!
And his enemies are naught but ashes!
Timotheus: "Thank you father." And set off after Zimphex...
(Sorry, no choices)
Meanwhile, at the Satyr village, a terrible sight meets the Demigod's eyes!
A giant boar is crashing through the village, fire coming from it's nostrils, and crushing houses like tinder!
Satyr: "Dionysus, please, save us!"
The boar turned it's head, staring straight at the Demigods.
What will you do???
The Demigods on Riptide are leaving the ship, heading towards Camp Demigod, which is in flames!
Bearing their chests of gold, they began to disembark,
And travelled towards the pillar of smoke, rising in the sky.
Karbol: "Dardanos? Is it you?"
Dardanos: "Yes brother, we were separated at birth, you stayed with our mother, while I was sent away to Sparta. I have been studying the art of summoning the dead, as have you, I can see!"
Karbol: "It is good to see you, brother."
Suddenly the gates opened with a crash, and in came the Demigods from the rescue mission!
Nearly all of them were sporting large, wooden chest, filled with gold!
They all streamed in, and crowed around the entrance area.
Euaristos: "Finally, we have returned. Our rescue was successful, and on top of that, we have discovered the lost gold of Posieden!"
Karbol: "Good. We have decided that this location is no longer safe. We MUST move camp, or be destroyed by the forces of Kronos!"
Patroclus: "I think you're right about moving camp Karbol. Now might be a good time!"
"Dark devilry of Kronos! RUN!"
A massive red light,
Then all was black.
Kringos extricated himself from the rubble.
He saw Galbatorix, stuck beneath a portion of the wall!
He helped him up,
And they gazed at the rubble:
Nothing was left of the camp, but a mound of rubble and bodies!
Soon people began to regain consciousness: Dardanos,
Karbol and Quimera,
Euaristos and Arigarn.
Zeono had thrown himself on top of Aeson, to shield him from any rubble.
They too, rose up, unharmed.
Arigarn: "Quick! Bane is trapped!"
They ran to rescue him.
He crawled out from underneath the rubble, not seriously injured.
Semperi lay on the ground, with blood on his back.
Bane: "Semperi! NOOO!"
He ran towards him, praying that he wasn't dead.
He rolled him over.
Bane: "He's breathing!"
Semperi: "F-f-farewell, my friend, I now go to the halls of my mother, Hecate.
Bane: "Farewell Semperi. Be at peace."
Semperi's eye's saw no more.
Euaristos: "We must find any more survivors, and leave this place at once!"
As the Demigods were shifting the rubble a gruesome sight met their eyes!
Laying in a pool of blood, were the remains of Patroclus, decapitated, with limbs separated from his body.
Galbatorix: "He must have gotten the full force of the blast. Goodbye, Patroclus."
Euaristos climbed up on top of one of the bigger pieces of the camp, to address the Demigods.
"This location for our Camp is no longer safe. We must move to a more stronger, and fortified position. We also must-
"As I was saying: Kringos, Arigarn, and Thesticles, you three will take Riptide down river, to scout out any safe positions."
"The rest of us, we will take the remains of the Camp, and transport it to a safer spot, to rebuild our Camp."
"Kronos' war, has begun."
The Demigods loaded all the bricks and stone onto horse-drawn wagons.
While Kringos, Galbatorix, and Ariagarn,
Kringos: "Keep on the lookout for any good locations. I don't like the feel of this water..."
Thesticles: "Yes sir!"
But he did not notice, a snaky tentacle, rising out of the water...
It slipped on board, and Thesticles raised the alarm!
It snaked across the ship,
While two more climbed up the helm!
More began to come, when-
They began to tear apart the ship!
They grasped the middle of the ship,
And all was still.
With an ear-splitting crack, the ship broke in two!
Debris flew everywhere, while the Demigods held on for their lives!
Thesticles: "What is it?!?!"
Kringos: "It's the KRAKEN!"
Arigarn: "I-I-I can't hold on much longer!"
"AHHHH!!!" He fell right into the gaping mouth!
The tentacles grasped the ship, and then-
The ship sank under the waves, never to be seen again.
There are only choices for the camp group, (which includes the rescue mission people, and the ones who stayed at the camp), and the Satyr group:
a) Help construct the Camp
b) Scout out the area
c) Investigate more areas
d) Go looking for Riptide
a) Fight it head on
b) Attack it from the sides
c) Help the Satyrs
d) Flee for your life!
Hey Caleb sorry I'm so late. First, happy birthday and second, outstanding episode! I vote for b) «scout the area», since we don't know what dangers lie ahead and we currently have no base, we should inspect out circumstances and then move on to think about building it. Besides, we sent a party out to search for new areas for the camp and we don't really know they were attacked. Side note: inspiring sequence with the kraken and the tentacles sneaking in, loved it!
Ok well I don't know what to choose. I know this is not in the options but could my character perhaps leave the group to be a lone wolf? Or he could gather some followers and lead his own reblelion if not then I will pick option c.
