Goldergon snorted.

“Does she wish death? I could give her that. Otherwise, no. I am currently in the mood for murder.”

He turned away as he saw the creature nearing. He could finally discern it as a large werewolf in hybrid form with long horns, glowing red eyes, and unusually large claws.

“Have you seen such a beast before? I never thought werewolves to have horns,”Goldergon asked, pointing at the creature.
~~~~~~
A knock on the door woke Malcolm and he growled angrily. However, as he started to get up, he heard a breif shriek and a thud. He paused a moment, then burst into laughter.

“Dumbass people. Look up!”

He continued to laugh as he got comfortable again.

(This post is going to get dark very fast)

“Oh, it’s approaching us as I speak. Quite unusual for a werewolf. You cannot see it? Is it ethereal?”Goldergon said, humming.

The werewolf creature stood only a few trees away, its glowing eyes glaring at Goldergon. Those evil eyes then turned on Axel and a low growl of anticipation came to its throat.

“Well, Axel, you wish to meet a phantom werewolf? It’s likely quite deadly, and hungers for you. I must say, I’m curious what will happen if it catches you. I doubt you’ll notice it, despite it standing only a few trees away,”Goldergon commented.

He backed away from Axel, a cruel smile growing on his face. The creature seem to notice Goldergon’s actions and approached, its ghostly form passing through the grass with ease. But, the grass swayed a bit with its movements, as if being blown by a gentle breeze, marking its passage.

(Malcolm sleeps, and will return when dawn hits)

Goldergon huffed and snatched his robe out of Axel’s hands. He turned on the boy, his eyes flashing with a crazed gleam.

“Why should I protect you? You hold no use to me, boy! I told you I am a loner, and I intend to explore this forest alone, regardless of our previous arrangement,”Goldergon hissed.

The creature charged and lunged at Goldergon. He simply vanished, reappearing a few feet behind the werewolf, and the creature’s momentum carried it to Axel, where it fell onto him.

“I also told you I am obsessed with death. If you shall die, I shall watch, unless I am the one to kill you,”Goldergon added.

(You can definitely join. Fair warning, graphic violence/death and cursing. The character template is on Page 1. For context, look at the other characters and posts, if you haven’t already)
(My character sheets are on Page 1, Seeba’s on Page 2)
(Ignore the ‘Deleted User’, their character was viciously murdered by Goldergon)

@Seeba petsINKC President

The boy kicked and screamed, using what little strength he had to pull the monsters claws from his body
"PLEASE! PLEASE I DONT WANNA DIE" he sobbed, the material of his boots scraping aimlessly against the monsters pelt.

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

(I am honestly not trying to kill Axel, and I profusely apologize for the way this seems to be going, but Goldergon is just this dark. I also flipped a coin)

Goldergon stood there, watching in amusement.

“If I find your father, I am sure he will be pleased to see you waiting at the doors of oblivion for him,”Goldergon said, chuckling.

The beast rose up and snarled at Axel, its large claws tearing at Axel. It’s eyes flashed with unnatural joy.

“A raw portrait of beautiful death in the making,”Goldergon hummed, smiling wide, his red teeth showing.

(I don’t want to kill Axel without your permission. So, let’s just say, he’s getting a pretty harsh beating)
(An idea that might save Axel: dawn is beginning to approach)
(The fate of Axel is up to you, Seeba, since he’s your character. If you want him to die then make another character, or want him to live another day, it’s up to you)

(let's not kill him off yet, just leave him beaten up)
The break of dawn graced the sky just as Axel began to lose consciousness. It's sunkissed glow graced his skin and left the remains of blood and tears glistening in the light.

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

(‘Thumbs-up’)

The werewolf creature howled, seeming both upset and terrified, and ran off, fading into a spiraling mist. Goldergon sighed.

“Why must dawn drive away the fun? Oh well, onward. There will always be another creature marked by Death,”Goldergon muttered.

He turns to Axel with a disdainful gaze.

“Can you even get up?”
~~~~~~~
The shining light of the morning sun blinded Malcolm, waking him. He sat up with a growl and stared at the window in front of him.

“Damn it, I miss the hazy fog and dim sunrise,”he grumbled.

He stood and dressed, heading downstairs and searching for something to drink or eat. Thankfully, the place was packed with dried foods, and a jug of water was easily accessible. He also found the stash of alcohol and couldn’t help imbibing a bit.

He eventually headed back to the dining table, now his work table, and noticed the blueprint. A smile crossed his face as he remembered the evolved nanobots.

“Nothing like good bourbon and fond memories to brighten a rough morning,”he mused, spreading out his tools.

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

( @RiverTheSeawing, this originally started with the characters popping up at the edge of the forest near village. If you want to do that, you can, or you could be arriving via the abandoned road running through town, or just appearing in the village. Something like that, since the only character here who isn’t a newcomer to the village is Axel)

@Seeba petsINKC President

Axel's eyes settled on the blurred monster, he opened his mouth to speak, out nothing more than a groan left his lips.

@RiverTheSeawing

(I'll do the abandoned road, makes her seem more cryptid-like.)

As everything that was happening took place, the rest of the village seemed to grow quieter as a slightly mangled cat-like figure walked down the abandoned road, coming into town.

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

(Just for hell of it, I’ll admit that the forest creatures, like the werewolf, are just pure improv.)
(Fair warning, this one’s a bit long)

Goldergon huffed and walked away, leaving Axel to his fate. He stroked a few trees as he wandered, humming a random tune.

Minutes after Goldergon had left, an abnormally thin, elf-like creature with small horns where eyebrows should’ve been approached Axel. She knelt down and looked at the boy with concern.

She spoke to him, but her words were a strange mix of humming, clicking, and groaning. She then looked around and moved to a strange tree with massive leaves nearby, placing her palms and bare feet on the bark and climbing up as if she were climbing a ladder.

She grabbed several of the leaves and climbed back down. She gently picked up Axel and placed him on one of the leaves. She then ripped apart the others and squeezed them a bit, tapping the now sticky pieces onto his wounds. She continued to do this for a while.
~~~~~~~
Malcolm stepped back from the small machine and hummed, calculating. He looked at the blueprints, then the machine.

“You sure this will work?”he asked aloud.

Two blue flashes answered him.

“Alright.”

Malcolm grabbed the full vial of nanobots and gently dropped one onto his finger. He placed it in a slot on the machine, fiddled with the dials, and waited.

Moments later, three more nanobots formed in the slot next to the original. Malcolm grinned. He opened the lid and the three bots crawled away.

Malcolm then started testing the machine’s limits, slowly increasing the number of bots made. The maximum was a thousand, and the machine didn’t stutter when he turned it to that, nor when he turned the speed of it up.

“Brilliant. Shall I try one of you then?”Malcolm asked the two evolved nanobots that had made the blueprint.

Malcolm took out the other nanobots and searched for something to place the new bots in. One of the evolved nanobots volunteered when he returned, crawling into the slot by itself.

He kept an eye on the machine as it poured out thousands of copies. Malcolm opened the lid to the new bots and they swarmed, crawling to the floor where they burrowed. The floor seemed to ripple, becoming smooth, but mostly retaining the appearance of wood.

“Damn. A floor I have missed.”

Commotion started outside and Malcolm glanced out the front window, noticing many people moving away from what appeared to be a strange looking cat.

“What damned cat is this? Shit! Just as this day looked good, now an alien feline has to appear,”Malcolm hissed.

The nanobots had changed most of the floor in the room by this time and started crawling up the walls. They didn’t touch the furniture though. Malcolm appreciated that, though he wouldn’t have really cared anyway. He inhaled deeply, smiling.

“No more smelling old wood and sap. Damn, I love the smell of metal!”

@RiverTheSeawing

(Tsuki is basically me when I read fanfic or roleplay. Now that that's out of the way, is it just me or does the idea of soul swapping the child and the tall murder creature for a bit sound funny?)

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

(Lol, that would be funny. Only issue, it wouldn’t work on Goldergon, aka ‘the tall murder creature’.)
(And to clarify, Axel, Goldergon, and the elf creature are deep in the forest next to the village. They’re not in the village)
(Did you read the previous posts for context? Or jump right in? Just curious)

@Serpentess health_and_safety language

(To Tsuki: Don’t mind the four corpses on the porch. They’re for decoration)

Malcolm whirled around at the strange sound, eyes narrowing into a glare.

“This damn alien feline is going to get on my nerves if it keeps that up.”

The spidery robot perched above the door leaned down, fan blades spinning a bit in contemplation. It then jumped down and attacked Tsuki, its many sharp blades slashing or spinning at the feline.

The nanobots reached the ceiling, most of the house already modified. Then they started to build something out of the floor behind Malcolm.
