(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

Part 19: The Gods' Entertainment --         A  pegasus ignited the sky with bright variations of blue flames, bends its neck and points its unicorn horn at a castle below, "Blazer! Blast a massive fireball at the roof of that section of the castle." Blazer launches fireballs from his horn, collapsing the roof over the throne room. "Land on the roof and summon a blizzard around the castle." Sam jumps off of Blazer, his legs bent as he  crashes into the ground. Sam stood up, staring Wallace in the eyes. Wallace is sitting on his throne, his elbow resting on the armrest, his hand bent with his chin resting in the palm of his hand. Sam pulls out his sword, in a full sprint he charges forward, his sword in high-ready as he drops the sword from a forty-five degree angle as his left leg half-moon steps with his foot stopping in the middle of Wallace's stone throne. Sam turns around, "You can move faster than my melee attacks! I am here to settle what was firs

  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

Sam Belthor's home is located near the ocean on the outskirts of our lands. His wife designs clothing for the wealthy and peasants. He does really well for an assassin. It states his bounties from the three kingdoms is one million for each bounty. His wife and children are worth five hundred thousand each. I want my soldiers to apprehend them right away!" The guards surround Sam's house, six guards kick open the door and drag out the woman and her three children. They are thrown into the dungeon below the castle courtyard. The king approaches the bars of the cell, "Wow, you are one beautiful woman. I am not going to kill you or your children. When Sam arrives at the house, he will be much easier to

   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

The thorns on the chair were sharp and maintained by the servants of the being. The guy grabs a chalice, grips the stem, then drinks from the chalice. He sets it down, stands up, growing taller than a hundred thousand feet tall. He shrinks down to six feet three inches, "I think I will visit the planet Loama. I want to see the progress that my servants have made." As he grows back to ten feet tall, a being standing around his height forcefully pushes open two doors that are thirty miles tall, six miles thick, and twelve miles wide. A man walked into the room as four other people followed from behind each one standing at ten feet in height, "Malthus! What games are you playing on Loama? Answer now!" He stands up again, "Valcia, Valci my elder brother, is this how to speak to your own sibling, afte
