So, now that Gids has posted, we should probably get around to putting together a joint post.

I reckon the order should be Sammy's part, followed by mine, then Scribe's, purely because that lets Sammy and Forge do the main part of holding the beasties back whilst Scribe gets their little spell under way. Thoughts?

Reasonable. Sounds good to me. I like the order and will read up so I'm ready to work on my part.

Do we want to work on it here in our personal OOC, over group PM, over IM(I have Yahoo and Skype) or in a group doc program like piratepad or some such?

May as well use our OOC thread, right?

PMs have a tendency to disappear from my inbox pretty quickly!

I'll get to work on the opening bit which will be Sammy reacting to the demons Gid threw her way.

Sorry, I forced myself to finish one of the several CS I still owe before working on another IC post. Working on this now though. :smile: Watch this space!

Heh, no worries. Things aren't moving at breakneck pace atm, so we should be alright.

Here we go. Thoughts? Just as a warning, you're dealing with a very different Sammy for the time being though it isn't going to last long. The restrictions will cause her to exhaust this level of power pretty quickly and you'll be back to having a more normal Sammy with added fire-laced bonuses.

Gideon wrote: Four of the Ground Wraith’s ran straight for Sammy, charging at her, gabbering and braying, communicating. As they charge, two split off to the sides, vanishing into the horde. As the remaining two grew closer, Sammy could hear twin shrieks on either side of her and saw the two demons closing in. They were forcing her back and flanking her. They were going to sandwich her between the four of them…
Sammy looked around, panic growing by the second as she realised that she was surrounded and that everyone around her was already occupied with their own foes. For the first time since her consciousness had first come into existence, she felt completely and utterly helpless. Instinctively, she backed away despite knowing full well that she was simply bringing herself closer to the two that were approaching her from behind. The first blow came to the back of her head, the demon's claws cutting into her skin as it knocked her from her feet. She hit the ground hard but felt nothing save for the shattering of the barrier that had been keeping the elements under control. All at once everything was Fire.

The demons, though not exactly celebrated intellectuals, could sense that something was awry and backed off immediately, startled by whatever had happened to the creature they'd been ready to finish off. They watched curiously as a small ball of fire hovered some inches above the ground where the girl had been laid before. Had one of them done that? Could they do that? They exchanged confused glances, not noticing as the ball steadily began to grow, slowly taking on what appeared to be a humanoid shape. The closest demon shrieked, throwing itself at the being and again as it flew through the flames and landed heavily on the other side, significantly singed.

The others held back, heads cocked to one side as they watched the fire, transfixed. Slowly, the flames began to recede, revealing the form beneath. Sammy looked down at her hands, studying each of them carefully before she looked up at the demons, her eyes now roaring with Fire. A pair of curved, jet black horns grew from the top of her once blonde hair that appeared now to be made from Fire itself. The second demon charged, screaming as her arm shot out to grab the creature by the throat. Fire licked at its neck as the demon screamed and thrashed in her grip, his melted flesh slowly dripping from where her skin met his. Smirking, she let go, allowing the creature to collapse in a pathetic heap in front of her where it continued twitched and wail.

"Who's next, then?" She asked, grinning at the remaining two as a long, tendril of Fire slowly emerged from her right hand.

Looks good to me. You take a hit showing your character, despite being imposing, isn't invincible. You show the demons as being at least moderately intelligent(which I've noticed some people NOT doing...), you manage to impart a good deal of detail and imagery without taking too many actions or having the moment drag on too long.

All in all I'd say job well done.

Not to mention the capitalization of Fire makes it seem... raw, and overwhelming. 'Elemental', despite being a bit TOO on the nose, is probably the best way to define it. Which is probably what you were going for.

Do you think as Sammy doesn't actually react with either of you and, in the interest of keeping the length of our post to a manageable level, that I should just post that now and we'll start our group post from the point that the pair of you catch up with her?

It's up to you. I was gonna suggest we add a tiny Sammy portion at the end of the post, if it was needed for clarity, but you posting on your own works, too.
