Breath puffs from Tony's masked maw like volcano's noxious plume as with arms slashing the air before him, he charges in pursuit. He bursts from the house in a spray of ash and wood splinters as he takes most of the door and its frame with him, mist swirling from his body in tongues of grey and black.



His feet strike the ground hard, impact shuddering through his bones, yet he immediately flexes, sinking into a runner's low stance, and wasting not a moment more. He takes one long breath, feeling the hot air scrape his throat as it passes into his lungs. Then, he surges forward with an explosive burst of strength. Ahead, the Dunes have become a maze of sorts, its corners sharp and sudden, carved by the hands of men. It is a labyrinth meant to foil pursuit, likely here long before these mindless hollows took up residence.

Ash grinds and hisses beneath his soles, whirling up in miniature tempests with each long stride, the crossbow bobbing slightly before him, his other arm lashing the air. Dark motes drift before him, chunks of ash that stain his armor and cling to his features, yet these to are ignored, for his prey lies ahead, vanishing around one of many dunes, soot fanning out as it skids and nearly loses its balance.

He rounds the corner in what could be best described as a "drift", a wave of displaced ash filling the air behind him as he smoothly rises and rushes after his quarry, lungs aching, yet at the same time, filled with invigorating heat, intoxicating power Another dune stands in his way, the path diverging to either side, yet his foe's prints left gleaming and dark in the grime tell him all he needs. He drops low, intuition more than design sending him careening around the hulking mound, his pivot rending the air with choking grime.

Tony surges forward, catching a glimpse of the Sunlight Emblem as his foe clambers up the face of a dune, and slides down the far side. The THICC warrior grunts in anger, and without slowing, digs fingers and toes into the sand, flinging himself upward with terrifying speed. He crests the dune in a corona of filth, his powerful legs absorbing the impact as he slams against the ground on its far side.

Ahead, three more dunes, ash walls on either side; they must have entered a trench somewhere in the pursuit. He spins around another hill, drifting with a screech of iron and hiss of disgruntled soot. Lunging forward, he plants his left foot, and pivots around the next, muscle flaring with heat and power as he surges on, planted foot grinding through ash as he drifts around the piled ash, arriving in a channel of sorts, a straight path that leads to his fleeing adversary.

Huh what a coincidence, I was just finished watching:

Watch on youtube.com


*Voices tell him in his head he's going too fast! and he'll never make it! but he ignores them, believing in the power of the DRIFT, and running in the 90s... 90s of miles per hour that is!*

*He speeds up, crossbow at the ready, sights on his prey, ready to fire...*
Through Dark Souls of futures past. The speed runner longs to see. One boost between a pair of binos. Parry Walk with Me.

Tony hears a familiar chime, then a less familiar phrase: "FOR THA MUTHAF*CKIN SUN!"

A disk of darkness appears before Tony, from which the mimic man rises with arms spread to praise the sun

Crams calls out to the THICC "please stop and explain yourself, it's your old pal Crams, surely there is a reasonable explanation for what you've been doing!" Crams then recalls that the man is not only mute but seems to have lost his memory of his former companions, with this knowledge he brandishes his Split Leaf and prepares to use it however possible to stop the THICC from continuing his rampage, but also prepares to dodge, just in case.

@Mr_Peer @EldritchImagination did you still want to d-d-duel? If so, I can probably set up a discord...

@EldritchImagination
I'M TIRED OF WAITING AT THIS BONFIRE CHARLES
STEP FORWARD AND FACE ME
Or perhaps...
*Grom carefully stretches out his hand towards the shining, writhing Dark Soul in Charles' inventory. When his fingertips are mere centimetres away from touching it, the bonfire coughs up some ash and the trance is broken. It is only with the greatest effort that he can stop himself from taking it. He hisses like a snake while throwing himself backwards, his eyes fixed on the dark mass teasing him. Luckily, no one seemed to have noticed his attempt to steal it. "I need it, I...need it. Dark Souls. B-but why?" Grom doesn't know why he is obsessed with these souls, even though one of seemingly many is already in his possession.
With a pain in his heart, Grom sits down in the shadows of one of the many pillars in the Spear arena and meditates, waiting for the return of his...friend.

A side note: the "harder" dungeons still to "come" will reward multiple dark souls; the "hardest" gives 100 Dark Souls at once

More...
More Souls...
Grom abandons the meditation and takes out his Dark Soul. He tilts it, lets it flow from one hand to another, holds it close to his eye. It's almost possible to perceive a form in the endless dark, although he's not sure what exactly. Then, he looks down on it and...

Grom closes his eyes while still holding the Dark Soul, focused on the flavour. *He had just tasted Dark, and it was like...
