Closeup of Slately, he's got a grim and determined expression as he stands in front of the throne. Two stabbers stand to either side of him, drawing their swords.|||
Slately and Parson look at each other, ignoring the fighting around them. Slately is standing straight, arms at his sides, with the Ray Gun in his right hand. Parson holds his sword ready but isn't advancing, regarding Slately with cold civility.|||
Slately grimaces as he shoots at Parson with the Ray Gun, but he's raised the Staff of Suckage in front of him. It absorbs the blast creating a brilliant red shield. A female decrypted is falling to the ground, possibly from being shot through by the blast.|||
Closeup of Parson holding up the Staff of Suckage to his chest. His eyes are wide and his face is showing shock as it disappears in his grasp, vanishing in a cindery red burning effect.|||
Parson switches his sword to a reverse grip in his right hand as he kicks Slately straight in the chest, sending him flying backwards. Slately looks like the wind has been knocked out of him. What's left of the Staff of Suckage vanishes as red sparkles. The Throne of Jetstone is in the background, the scene is still filling with smoke.|||
SFX: ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED Battle Royal: Hit a King |||
The upper wall of the Throne Room bursts inward in a crash of masonry and wooden beams. The cause isn't visible in the dust, though Slately can be seen slumped on a wall.|||
A scorched Battle Bear walks in through the hole, carrying an Incapacitated but conscious Ace Hardware in its left paw. The fire in the Atrium is visible behind the bear as an orange halo, with fresh white smoke trailing in from the hole. Holly Shortcake's destroyed Raggey Ann Doll is suddenly whole; it's raiment is changing from gingham blue to an olive green and face paint as it's healed with glowing green Dollamancy light.|||
The camouflage Doll takes a screening position in front of Slately, crouching and holding a right hand back protectively. Green glowing Dollamancy in the form of needle and thread is finishing repairing the doll. Slately is slowly getting up to a kneeling position, holding up his Ray Gun. He looks unamused as he speaks.|||
Slately: Unnrh? |
Just... Just close your mouth when you fight.
