Thom desperately chased after Gloomhollow, who proved very tenacious. Thom was finally forced to attack to end her suicidal journey. With Gloomhollow’s senses returned, the two of them ran and retrieved their flying platforms.
Above the two of them, Azrukal helplessly attacked the emerging Demon, however quickly discovered that she was regaining her endurance using the mist from the surrounding orbs. He savagely continued to attack her while she used debilitating magic to weaken and restrain him.
Thom and Gloomhollow jumped onto the platforms and began flew towards the nearest orb. As the two of them neared, a small creature emerged from the mist and positioned itself to defend the orb. Gloomhollow dispatched the creature with a single blow and Thom followed up by smashing the intact orb and ending the mist.
Thom and Gloomhollow decided that destroying the orbs was the best course of action. They flew from orb to orb and each time the creature seemed to be getting larger that spawned to defend the orb.
Finally after being nearly beaten to death, the demon Azrukal began to see some of his efforts against Oublivae take effect. He noticed that Thom and Gloomhollow were destroying the orbs that surrounded the clearing, and had destroyed nearly all of them. Oublavae’s regenerative powers had diminished.
By the final two orbs, the creatures that emerged were a huge whirl wind of diamonds, and a choking cloud of dust. The two of them dodged around the creatures and smashed the orbs hoping that may get rid of them as it had with the weaker foes. However, the two strongest remained.
The clouds over the clearing had begun to dissipate. Azrukal felt the demonic shell around him weakening. He knew that if left alone, he would lose this fight.
Oublivae let loose a forceful blast that launched Azrukal across the clearing and he landed in a fiery explosion that banished Her Ket’s magic from around him.
Oublivae laughed almost in relief and turned her focus onto Thom and Gloomhollow who were barely holding their own against the whirl wind of diamonds. She raised her claw hand up to blast them, when the clouds above her cleared revealing the Breland Capitol ship directly above her.
The ship immediately set into a dive that brought it full broadside with Oublivae, and opened fire on the weakened demon. Twenty canons slammed into Oublivae and she dissipated into the swirling mist column turning it a combination of black and purple.
The Capitol ship pulled away from the column, which seemed to be speeding up. The violent column of mist suddenly dropped down toward the earth and when the top reached the ground level, it caused a quake like reaction. The initial shock waves set both Gloomhollow and Thom to their knees.
The whirlwind of diamonds vanished. Over the clearing hung a strange silence. Then a sound of tree limps snapping reached their ears. The group turned their gaze out to the forest and noticed the tree twisting and rotting at a rapid rate. They ran to the center of the clearing and discovered the funnel cloud had become a massive hole down into the earth.
