(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 20: Sam's Downfall  --        Bottles of liquor and lager surround a man laying down in the middle of an open field surrounded by the forest treeline, tears running down his face as he stares at the night sky. He stands up and screams into the sky above, "Fuck you, all of you gods up there! Is this the entertainment the gods seek. My wife was not part of this agreement, I made a contract to make sure that my family will not be collateral damage. I swear that I will find a way to defeat you all, all you stupid fucking gods! I will no longer be your pawn in this game, since you took my wife, I no longer have interest in your games with us mortals." Sam lights the forest on fire, like a flamethrower burning the kindling on the forest floor. "Malthus and Valcia both are responsible for the death of my wife. Wallace said that Arkana is being disciplined for the contract we made. I am grateful that he is not responsible for breaking the deal. I wish I could get to Lil

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

Part 16: Hell's Enforcers --         Brett enters the dimension, "I have now entered hell? This is more terrifying than I was hoping for. I can hear the screams of people being tortured causing a chill running down my spine, and the smell of blood as if they are still living. Malthus isn't going to help me anymore, he wants me to go about this with Chasono, but he is located at the far East section of this chamber. So, the test is for me to survive through the stages of hell and to defeat the strongest monster, the undead dragon. The dragon has spikes across its chin, neck, top of the head and spikes running down its spine to its tail but not on the tail itself. I guess I can easily remember that. There are hundreds of them located at the farthest Eastren part of hell." Brett transforms into a black mist and flies through the air, traveling past the demons dragging the damned to prison cells filled with poisonous snakes and spiders. The screams echo as he flies past

  Part 15: Lila's Realm -- Arkana and Sam enter his pocket dimension, when Lila and the other fairy-nymphs fly around them as Lila speaks up breaking the silence, "Welcome master Arkana and Sam. This is our realm, the realm of Mana. The magical essence gives this place a very paradise vibe, don't you think?" Sam dismounts Blazer. Arkana places his hand on the horse, transforming Blazer into a hybrid of a unicorn with pegasus wings. Sam mounts the horse, "Alright, as discussed before we entered, I will explore the environment and challenge the giant hydras and dragons. Do I have to kill them? Or can I just knock them out?" Lila replies, "Sam you should do either, these monsters are very powerful and the mana they possess grants them healing abilities and elemental powers. There are other magical animals in this realm too! So, you must be careful. Nature has spriggans that protect the wildlife but if alone they will ignore the hydras and dragons

 -- Part 14: The Pocket Dimensions --           Five years passed by. Wallace swings his sword at his five year old son, his son blocks it with his own sword, "Good job Antimus, you are getting really good at blocking and pivoting. I am so proud of my boy, you will make a great knight in the future." Sarlia arrives and demands, "Wallace, we need to start your training in the Antimum dimension. You have made some improvements in our Valkyria hand to hand combat martial arts and your body parts have gotten stronger from the amount of antimum inside of your body." Wallace asks, "So, how long till I am as strong as the gods themselves?" She replies, "If you mean Valcia, then that would take six trillion years. Each pocket dimension is controlled by each different god. The pocket dimensions are the source of each of the god's powers, well they have tried to possess each other's energy source but they could only master one at a time, so they were fo

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 6: Hunter's Fate     --          Sam moved his family to another village far away from king Henry's jurisdiction. The village is in the furthest Southern country, thousands of miles away from the Ice kingdom, on the coast of the country called Francoso. Francoso is a country with forests covering every part of the land, even the sandy beaches are a few meters from the forest treeline.  Sam Belthor buys a house next to the ocean, "Honey I will be out hunting for game. I will bring back money from my market after I prep the meat and give you the coats when I return home at dusk." Sam steps outside, he walks to the treeline as his children head off on a carriage for the schoolhouse in the village, inside of the castle walls. Sam wanders around the wilderness, successfully capturing over twenty five different animals from the traps he set up late at night. He places the animals onto the horse carriage, straps them securely to the
