(Part 17) The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom

Part 17: Heaven's Guardians        Wallace visits the different sections of Sarlia's realm, she explains, "This is where the souls go to be judged. The good souls and chosen warriors by Valcia rest. The chosen warriors get to keep their bodies and are escorted to the champion's hall. That is where you will go after you die." Wallace and Sarlia enter the stadium from their last sparring session. They enter the middle of the stadium battlegrounds, "Wallace, you will have to challenge three guardians. The gargoyles, the gryphon, and the mightiest guardian of heaven, the chimera. The gargoyles are strong through numbers but weak by themselves. The gryphon flies through the skies and maintains the policing of the different sections. The chimera protects the warriors entrance, it challenges any warrior before they can enter. The chimera never fights to its full potential, but if it deems the warrior to be strong enough, it will accept them into the warriors' Co

  The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom -- Part 13: Mana Harvesting --             Brett stands before Malthus. Malthus commands, "Brett, I want you to continue absorbing the mana out of the worthless beings. You gained a lot of mana from the plants and animals surrounding the villages and forests. I want you to start harvesting your own peasants' mana too. I want you to gain enough mana to crush Wallace and Sam! I can't grant a straight increase of mana into you, it's not within my abilities, that's Arkana's jurisdiction, but since I told you that all life forms have mana inside of them. You have gathered up enough to stay on even ground as the other champions. I can gradually increase the weakling's Mana the same way I granted you a little bit of my own to take over the kingdom; although, unlike you, it may kill them. Brett, if need be absorb the mana out of the peasants before they explode. You must succeed, at all costs!" Malthus teleports Brett back to th

   The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom - Part 11: Destiny's Crossroad --    Sam kisses his wife before  he climbs atop his horse. He touches the horse's fur, the horse begins to glow as Sam creates an aura of battle armor for his horse. The armor is embedded with the power of wind and fire. Sam says, "Now your name really fits you Blazer!" He rides off towards the North. Six days passed by as he arrived on the outskirts of Nalloia. Sam dismounts his horse, Blazer transforms into Sam's battle armor. Sam stares at his legs, waist and arms as he says, "Lila, why did my horse transform into my own armor?" A small one-foot tall fairy-nymph appears from thin air, "Your horse loves you. You take great care of your horse, and you have granted it magical powers. It is willing to protect you and stay by your side throughout the coming battles." Sam replies, "Lila, how do you understand what the horse is feeling?" She responds, "I am a woodland f

The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom - Part 10: Arkana's Superior Power -       With a quick swipe of the hand, Arkana forced the air around him to blast Sam across the training hall, "Good you stood back up. Now, your turn to use the power of wind." Sam closed his eyes and whispered to himself, "I have the mana within me, I just need to focus on the image and direction of where I want to move the air around me towards." Arkana replies, "Yes, but make sure you control the amount of mana being released. Mana interacts with the natural laws of physics. Mana is something that is inside every living cell, no matter the organism. Some beings have greater mana storage, but others lack enough to manifest it, they practically have near zero mana. Your home planet lacks enough mana; although, I granted you enough mana to defeat even my brothers. Hahahahahaha!" He smiles, "You just need to learn how to control it. Over time you will be able to use more and more po

The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom - Part 9: The Champions Of The Gods --       Servants place plates of food and drinks on a massive table as six of the gods sat at the table. A gorgeous brunette goddess asks, "Arkana, are you going to choose a champion to fight our brothers'?" Arkana smiles, "I chose mine a long time ago. I knew Malthus's intentions from the start. He complains about his position, even though it fits his personality. Malthus is an open book. Speaking of books, my warrior is about to stumble across the first gift I created for'em." The bright yellow eyes of the gods focus with intense intrigue as the image of a man changing the diaper of his newborn baby daughter is projected inside of a crystal ball that is five feet in diameter. A light brown haired goddess asks, "Has anyone else decided to join the bet and picked, or are going to pick a champion too?" Breaking the silence she continues, "I also have a champion. Mine is goin

The Shadow Of The Ice Kingdom - Part 8: The God Of Time, Destiny & Order -      Wallace sits up, removes the blanket covering him as he sits on the edge of the bed, placing his feet on the floor. He stands up, yawns as he stretches as his eyes begin to tear, "I am glad that Khaan decided to end the conflict between us, as my name has finally been cleared from the accusations. Belthor will be captured one way or another. He murdered the princess, those traveling merchants delivered her corpse to the queen and I. They were paid handsomely for their part in this investigation. Sam, you are a monster. I cannot wait till I get to torture you for all the torment you have been causing the queen. She was frozen with fear at the sight of her daughter's corpse. No tears, no talking, nothing but blank stares and psychological paralysis. She didn't come to bed." Wallace walks out of the bedroom, making his way to the throne room. He stops as he stares at the thrones, "D
