If it bleeds.

If you find this page a little hard to read, then my mission to show a hectic and fast-paced battle has succeeded, especially if you can tell what’s happening after staring at it for a moment or two. Sort of like watching a fight between transformers in a Michael Bay movie, only a lot easier and with a drastically-reduced special effects budget.

As the fight itself goes, the initial motions with the hellfire and iron cage were simple formalities. Each side testing out the other for their specialties and vulnerabilities, the slight problem being with archmages the former is a very broad list and the latter quite distinctly lacking. Consequently this fight only promises to get more complicated, but hopefully I’ll manage to get the action across with reasonable comprehension.

Right now though is where things start to actually get quite serious indeed.

  1. I just find it entertaining that the chosen method of battle between arguably the two most powerful spellcasters in the world is… melee.

  2. Well, it does sound like a good way of ‘leveling the field’, given each can probably turn the entire area into a smouldering crater easily enough.
