Burdened Dawn Episode 5

Episode 5: Secret Pathways

Henry set up a meeting with the man the poster called Vega. When he had called him he mentioned not having money, and told the man his story. Henry was sure he’d hang up or get mad, however he seemed sympathetic to his cause and agreed to help him. Despite the mans kindness he still felt nervous, after all, he’d never met a mercenary before.

Their meeting place didn’t make him feel any better. It was cold and creepy with several metallic structures that Henry didn’t understand. Pools of dirty water and long metallic pipes made the floor feel uncertain like he could trip any moment. When he had first got there he thought Vega would be waiting, instead over an hour later he was still alone. He was starting to think he’d been ditched when the sound of footsteps approaching finally appeared.

A massive pair of metal doors opened in the distance revealing a long corridor connected by glowing horizontal beams running up and down the walls like an obstacle course. The floor was a stream of even muckier water that seemed to follow the path indefinitely. Henry assumed this was how the suburbs made sewer ways, because the smell of this path reeked like a thousand dead bodies. Even from far away it was unbearable.

Out of the path a silhouette appeared, his face was covered by a breathing mask, his boots were huge and connected to his camouflage overalls. He waved his hands towards himself as if inviting Henry to go for a swim. Henry knew what he meant, it was time to go. No room for fear now, he had a date with a mercenary.

Kraken Episode 7

Episode 7: Sacrifice

Uma’s body froze in pure terror, the family that had taken them here, had found them. They could possibly face the same fate as the rest of their family in moments. She had no idea what to do, as the slow purposeful footsteps came closer and closer to the bed, Uma lost hope. Even if she tried to fight she’d lose, if she tried to run they’d smell her like they did under the bed. Her time had run out.

That’s when something terrible took place. Before I had the chance to stop him my grandpa popped out from underneath the bed. Revealing himself to whatever twisted monster was out there. The creatures hissed in anger at the site of a perfectly normal human.

“You smell me, I escaped punish me how you must.” My grandpa pleaded

Uma’s grandpa was sacrificing his freedom and possibly his life for hers. She couldn’t help but shed a tear. Her grandpa was so brave and utterly stupid. His disregard for his own safety was instinctual he hardly even thought about it. She had to make it worth while abd save her family.

“Take him to the dungeon with the rest” One hissed to another

Some rustling took place and then silence the family as well as her Grandpa was gone. Uma was totally alone with no plan, no help, and only about 10 years of good life experience. She felt utterly without hope like every opportunity had been squashed away before her eyes. Uma had nothing.

She knew she couldn’t give up, her family was captured and no matter the odds they needed her. Uma’s grandpa was down there, her aunts, her uncles, her mom and dad. No matter what the cost it was necessary they found an escape. That’s when an idea hit her like a lightning rod.

The Kraken the same beast that captured them in the first place. It had listened to her, and cared enough to take her away from imprisonment. It had sparred her and showed her kindness. She wasn’t alone if she went back for him she could use the creatures fondness to fix all of this.

The Magic Profiles: Episode 2

“Power is not good or bad, It simply is.”

-Unknown

“The Leviathan is a terrible and despicable creature, I would hardly want to run into something that scary on open waters.”

MAU Director

Episode 2: The Leviathan

This is a series about the most dangerous beings to ever graze our earth. The creatures that came from a power long forgotten. While some rely on technology, or Martial Prowess to defeat their enemies, a whole other class of combat exist right under our noses. Here we’ll explore that power and its many applications. This isΒ The Magic Profiles.

Today we’ll be talking about a sea monster of biblical proportions. A creature so massive that even the ships currently in our possession get dwarfed in comparison. This iconic beast is considered a threat even by the angels that once battled him, the Leviathan exist in a completely different league even in comparison to something like the Kraken. So, let’s take a deeper look into what makes this beast such a formidable magical being. What is it that separates him as the baddest beast in the sea?

Let’s start with his gargantuan size and significant physical advantages. The Leviathan is about a hundred times bigger than a blue whale. Human beings don’t even get as big as a Leviathan tooth, to make a more understandable comparison. Its jaw size and strength alone is enough to take massive bites out of steel war ship with little in the way of resistance. Whenever it moves its tail in order to swim thousands of gallons of water get displaced in an instant. Its size is so legendary even sailing near him is incredibly dangerous. However, size isn’t all he has.

The Leviathans magic is surprisingly fire based despite his status as a sea monster. He is known to create boiling waters with a devastating fire breath in order to intimidate and even kill his opponents. His ability to discharge fire from his mouth can be used on anything from cities to ships and is often used in conjunction with his tail and body weight. It’s well known that being in front of the heat blast of this mighty creature puts even a dragon to shame. Due to its huge belly and mouth, his breath is often compared to the blast of a volcano or geyser. That being said, he is hardly just an offensive creature.

The Leviathans skin is capable of withstanding gun fire or even explosions. Its hundreds of times denser than steel and because of its massive surface area its considered practically unbreakable. No human weapon thrown at it has been capable of even making it bleed. Angel weapons will hurt it, but its hardly an easy target. During his battle with angel kind the Leviathan withstood several heavy blasts that arguably most creatures couldn’t. All in all, the Leviathan is a complete unstoppable shield from his head to his tail.

The Leviathan is an incredibly terrifying beast with little weakness’s. He is often considered more of a force of nature than a creature. His insane size, fiery breath, and unstoppable hunger do certainly seem similar to an end of days. It is wise to avoid this beast at all costs if one values their safety. The Leviathan is and remains one of histories strongest magical beings.

Draw the Picture Episode 3

“Take the advice or don’t after all, I am just a tree.”

-The Wise Willow

“Take a lesson from the tree down the road little creature. The only way to be happy is to be content with what you have.”

-The Wise Willow

Despite my youthful appearance, I’ve lived on this road for some time. Much longer than any of the humans who come and go from their homes like clockwork. Far longer than the birds and squirrels who make their homes among my branches. Certainly longer than ants that run along the grassy hills. Trees aren’t like animals, always moving around hungry and afraid. You seek greater and greater things with no limit. This is because a beast is forever famished. Never content with what it has.
Take a lesson from the tree down the road little creature. The only way to be happy is to be content with what you have. No prey will satisfy your hunger. Even an infinite bounty would not please your empty stomachs. The sole way to truly find peace is to be like a tree.
How often do you see a hedge request anything? Even if a daisy could talk I doubt it would have a single desire. This is because a plant is never moving. A plant’s job is to be still. It collects the bounty the universe provides. It doesn’t ask it for things only sit there and waits.
Of course, because of biology, this is impossible to fully accomplish. However, I hope that there is a lesson in the way we live. After all, I’m older than I look. I’ve seen leaders fall and rise and I’d like to think I know a thing or two. Trust in the universe, I believe you’ll be surprised. The bounties you miss running about are endless. When you let go of control amazing things can happen.
This is not to say to not have any ambitions, animals need their goals. After all, you’ve accomplished many things with willpower. Things a tree-like me can’t scoff at. Perhaps, all I’m trying to say is be content with where you’re at. I see so many humans who desire and desire until it destroys them. Ambition becomes jealousy so easily. The power of gratitude and trust is incredible. Take the advice or don’t after all, I am just a tree.
