Tony's ability to parry must REALLY suck for him to have such a poor chance at landing a Caestus parry against hollows with daggers. :/

*Nonetheless Tony goes for a parry using the Fire Caestus that strange invader generously left for him when asked for.*

*that was supposed to be 75% not 25%*

Tony flawlessly parries the first Voidkin, whose gaunt features contort with surprise as it reels, arms thrown wide with a satisfying clang.

*Tony decides to go for a riposte, but not one anyone could imagine...*

*His desire for Void power has turned to hunger. To literal hunger.*

*Tony plunges his fist into the Voidsign on the chest of the parried hollow, going straight through the other end of his body, then grabs him closer, and eats him from the outside in. Eventually, the hollow's body snaps in half as limbs stick out from the unseen mouth of his helm, gradually going downward with each crunch and snap of bone, each slush and squish of flesh and organ, down Tony's throat. And to make sure his food stayed down, he struck repeatedly the broken-up hollow with a Coiled Sword, as if cattle-prodding it down his gullet. The surge of Void power was immense. More than it seemed he could handle before he regained his composure. He knew now the purpose of his journey. The path would be arduous, but he had no fear. He would devour the Voidborn himself.*

@eremHaNeoN oh ****

The other Voidkin tremble in fear, the rightmost flinging its dagger, the thin blade no more than a midnight glimmer as it sails past, a hopeless miss.

*With speed unmatched by any encounters beforehand he skewers the remaining Voidborn like pigs on spits - the first one swirls down his throat spinning around like being sucked down a whirlpool. The other goes down just as easily, albeit more slowly. As it goes down it cries out.*

"Ohh, DOMINUS, help me, please... The T H I C C-hood is come to eat us... to eat our Voidsigned souls..."

*Its final words as it digests in the bloating-with-newfound-Void-power Tony. He convulses, collapses, vomiting up a black fluid, then sees a vision... he feels water wash upon him. He looks around. A beachfront of some sort. There are abandoned fishing boats in the distance. Before him a great entity has beached on the surf, dead, for who-knows-how-long. The vision fades, the sea does too, revealing itself to be the black bile he just coughed up. What has he done? What compelled him to do what he did? Any concern he has for his sudden behavior vanishes as soon as he thinks about it though. He reflects on it. He is certain now, this was the right thing to do. This is the only way he can fight the greater Void powers that be.*

*He feels bigger too. Not just fatter, but as though he has grown an inch or two taller. As he stumbles back on his feet he feels the crunch of these newly grown bones. He is dizzy, unsteady on his feet, but finally, is able to move as effortlessly as he had before. Black mists evaporate from the pores of his body, swirling and wrapping around him. His chest tightens, some small circle having imprinted on the front of his armor. It is painful, but with the pain comes power. The mists shoot out of him at intense whirlwind speeds, coiling themselves around him. Faces. The faces of many souls are seen in the mists as they fly by his vision. Then the mists escape upward and take the ceiling with them.*

*Tony is on the floor again, given a sucker punch of a lifetime. He breathes heavily, before calming down, getting back up, again, and acting as if everything is business as usual.*

*There is the matter of the shiny on the ground which he goes to inspect...*

Tony gains 3*70=210 souls (they were hollows, one shot regardless of what you do; eating them however... Somehow, you've happened blindly upon the plan I had for mutation and the eventual grasp of power far beyond Ashen reach... Horny hands act alike I guess...)

The shiny reveals itself to be... Stablemaster's Key!

That or Void-Gael. We will see where Toto's Bizarre Adventure takes him...

*Tony goes and pockets the key. He's glad to see one less chore he needs to do to progress.*

*He goes outside and does a charged attack with his Lute. The ground vibrates a little. Not enough to cause serious damage, or damage at all, to anything, but enough it may briefly stun anyone charging toward him. His Lute may not be able to kill a Voidborn directly save for the one mystery tune penned in blood when he wasn't looking, but it still will serve as a good side tool nonetheless.*

*As he approaches the final two houses he does another charged attack on the ground between them, enough to rattle the ground and doors in front of them. If there is a trap, this would certainly set it off. Assuming there is nothing to trap him, he goes to break down the door of the house on the right where he finds...*
