There were some IDP on calls, so some will have survived. But as for in the headquarters themselves? None. Bodies everywhere, broken machines everywhere, but no other living beings but Colt and Valzar remain. With them both wreaking havoc on the machines the number of machines drops quickly. Though the machines leech off energy, both have energy to burn. The energy of a thousand generations.

You do not find the mechanics body. There are signs, with your newfound increased ability, that indicate she did make it into a portal to her 'Hell' plane. You see Valzar burning through other machines. Quickly dismantling enemy after enemy. You are matching him kill for kill though. Only a few remain now..and you can easily take care of them.. when a fiery portal opens up. Out saunters the mechanic, tail swinging back and forth.

You are no longer fatigued, the energy of your ancestors easily replenishes your energy.. and in fact you feel you could almost burst with it. You see Colt and he is as a man possessed.. killing faster and more efficiently then would be expected. Only a handful of machines remain.. and they are in between the two of you. Easy prey. Then a fiery portal opens up, and a very curvacious form saunters through the portal.


The form has a large metal ball in its hand.. she tosses it to Colt. The machines close on her. "Now boys.. I am a lover not a fighter. These guys?" You see twol other fiery portals appear and 9' tall creatures come through. They are red from head to toe, with two large horns and black wings. "They are the fighters." She smiles a wicked smile. "Get em boys." With savagery equal to Colt.. they leap like wild animals and start tearing the machines apart. For such large creatures they are very swift and nimble. Between the four of you (two of the 9' creatures), the machines are down in seconds. "Ok boys, your mother has some business to take care of. Go back home." The portal opens up, and they step back through).

((Tyg3r.. you have Steel back))

The female frowns as she looks around. "I see I am too late.. time works.. differently where I call home."

In classic geek-speak, Colt replied, "Those still only count as one, y'know, Morgana."
When no one got the joke, Colt face-palmed.
I've gotta get you guys a copy of the Earth film, "Return of the King". It's a reference."

As they cleaned up the headquarters building, Colt knelt over every piece of remains, crossing the air above them, intoning gravely, "In nomine Patris, et Dominae, et Spiritus Sancti. Mayest thou rest in peace, Amen."

Why do you do that?!
"I do so because it is the only bit of the Last Rites I know. Who gives a damn I've said it until even Morgana can say it in her sleep, I'll say it until even God Himself is tired of hearing it. These people deserve no less, Steel."

"I actually got the joke, Colt," Blaze said, "Though, I do admit it's hard to see my reaction with a fairly blank mask."

After a brief chuckle, Blaze wondered out loud, "What's our next step?"

As Colt shoved yet another headless torso into yet another bodybag, he said, hollowly, "We wait for the universe to let us know Strongarm is dead. Then we go after Death with everything we have left."

Time passes, and soon the nexus starts shutting down. A good sign that the force that had kept it running for who knows how long is no more. With Strongarm's chosen successor also gone, there is no power feeding the core. The crystal is expending the energy it has in order to keep things running, and as that power empties, it has to shut down more and more of the nexus to compensate to keep running just that much longer. The last two rooms will be the room you two are in, and the core itself. Nothing bad will happen when the power is out, but the nexus will be dark once more. Morgana hangs her head in a moment of silence, knowing what this means. "Thus passes probably one of the greatest men the multiverse has known."

She turns to the two of you. "The others.. if we defeat death.. they can be brought back. For him there will be no more coming back. He was sometimes a hard man, sometimes an evil man, but for all of his flaws.. the worse is that he cared too much. Me and my clan stand ready to aid you. Races and people from all over the multiverse will come, for they owe Strongarm that much. We will probably not be enough, but.. "
You hear her voice change, her eyes glowing, and you see vast armies.. billions and billions strong.. various races, various dimensions, all with one thing in common.. they owe IDP great debts. Some you recognize, for your group were there when you saved them from various things. She speaks with one voice, but it is many voices in one "We stand with you, and we will fall with you if that is what must be."

Colt nods. "Oh good! I was afraid it was just the six of us," he motioned to Blaze and himself.
At Morgana's blank look, Colt rolled his eyes, "Blaze, Steel, Remington, Smith, Wesson, and me?"
He indicated each pistol with a roll of his wrist.

"Before we go," Blaze said, "I would like a few moments to power down and process everything. I'm almost beginning to forget that I have my own face under my armor."

Tyg3rW01f 07-17-2014 05:36 PM

"Morgana? Question: We're down to the Nexus crystal, Prime Earth, Earth 317, and Gaijin no Jiutsu... No successor has stepped forward. What do we do to save not only the IDP, but the Multi-verse?"
