PostSubject: The Forest of Nemus [private]   Sat Dec 14, 2013 1:19 am

Aldon found himself in the forest of Nemus a forest technically out side of the city where a second wall was build around it. Where he was to learn knowledge from the spirits which were said to inhabit Nemus. Well, being in search of knowledge from spirits seems to require finding sprits in the first place, and why am I sarcastic to myself when I am thinking Aldon thought that he saw somthing moving in the dark of the night but he couldn't be sure. Somthing lunged at Aldon but rather than his usual methods of majorly injuring somthing he quickly subdued and and let the creature go.

An unknown voice said from a tree "And why not your usual methods of killing or hurting?"

"I guess you could say it was a... a change of heart." Aldon replied.

"I can give not the knowledge you are seeking but without me you will never find your way to the knowledge you seek. I can give but the first few of an 1000 step journey, but you have to be the one to walk." The vioce replied

"You must be the spirit of Nemus, I am but a vessel here to fill myself of knowledge." Aldon said truthfully as he bowed to the spirit

Nemus replied "Truly the wisest words I have heard in decades, but even the wisest of men must face trials along his path. I am merely the first hurdle you must pass along the pursuit of wisdom."

Aldon stood as he said "You may be the first obstacle along my journey, but you may very well be my last obstacle. Just because the first sage in existance was first does not make him any less wiser than the rest."

"Indeed you are more than mentally ready but morally so you are truly dedecated to the path which you have chosen. Tell me why is it you brawl is it for the enjoyment of fighting or money perhaps?" Nemus replied.

Aldon paused for a moment as if to think before making up his mind and saying "well I guess it goes back to the theory of classical conditioning and mental associations. I orginally needed to brawl for money, I started to associate brawling with money and money with good. My mind began to then associate brawling and good as if to take out the middle man of money. Soon enough as I realised that I really don't need more much money than I need to spend and money's association with good bagan to fade, the association of brawling and good just stuck. Truthfully I tell you that to this day I still feel as if I need to brawl to live.

Nemus said "While minds are somthing I cannot read to the full extent truths are somthing I can pick out of a crowd, and indeed you, whether you know it or not took the first step to being a sage long ago where most fail their journey where they start, you trully will make the journey if you choose to continue."

Aldon replied "Perhaps I do have all the potential of which yoou described but I doubt even the guardian spirit of the great cherry blossom tree can tell the future. Howeveer this could just be a simple test to see if I am paying attention."

Nemus laughed "Not a single soul has caught that since the group that talked ot the guardian spirit of the great cherry tree. It makes me happy to see that at least a few have sharp ears for detail."

"I am but a vessel, here to take as much knowledge into myself in the short period that I may be able to hold knowledge." Aldon said humbly

"Truly you are a vessel," Nemus replied "but before you can be filled with the brew that is true, you must wash yourself of the poisonous brew."

"Indeed I began washing myself of the poisinous brew long ago  however the residue still retains it's poison" Aldon said

Nemus replied "As with all fine wares they must be scrubbed especially hard to remove the dirt"

Aldon stated "Indeed, just as the new moon meets the full they both wane and wax on their way"

"You are ready to face my challenge. Do you dare venture into the woods?" Nemus inquired

Aldon replied "I am only here to venture through these woods.

"Then take a seat wherever you please and we can get started" Nemus stated

Aldon without another word began to climb trees, he then began jumping from tree to tree to get to the tallest ree at the heart of the grove. When he was there Aldon Climbed to the highest surdy branch that he could sit on and said "Whenever your ready Nemus." Aldon closed his eyes and was seemingly transported to another world. Aldon found himself standing in a forest not unlike Nemus however infested with the monsters of the badlands.

Aldon thought to himself This must be one fo two things the entire forest is projecting illusions or the illusions are directly in my mind, but I am no doubt actually walking in the forest of Nemus. Aldon felt prying eyes scan over him as the beasts stalked the bushes. "A nice style Nemus, I have no clue wether these beasts will hurt me mentally or physically. However I have no doubt that these are some sort of projection that will hurt nothing if I kill."

"A rather a fast conclusion to make what gave it away?" Nemus asked

Aldon pin pointed a beast and began waiting it to charge before he replied "Well you had me close my eyes right? Since ther is no doubt I am actually walking in this forest but these creatures weren't here before, so one of two things is happening. One you are simply projecting images whether into my mind or into the forest, or two you projected a perfect copy of Nemus which is also in many ways different." Aldon scratched an itch on his arm just before the beast charged. Aldon At first let the beast hit him once before he threw the beast into a tree. Aldon stomped on the beasts neck as if to kill it, He then grabed a stone from the ground and cut himself. "Had to hurt myself a bit to figure it out but ou have simply projected a copy of Nemus into my mind. So where do I go what do I do?"

Nemus praised Aldon for making such a fast and correct conclusion "Even going as far as to not hurt the beast before you have your conclusion. If I had wanted the beast could have killed your mind why did you risk it?"

"I'll answer your question but then you answaer mine in return." Aldon said "See you had yet to even tell me where I am going or what I am doing so it would be almost too bold of a move to try to kill me now so I knew that I didn't have a high chance of dieing."

Nemus replied "A smart move now it is my turn to answer a question. You must simply escape the illusion that I have planted in your mind."

Aldon turned himself to where he knew the center of Nemus was and beagan to walk along a path on the ground. "Should I have to escape my own mind gates will do me no good no doubt, what I am seeking is in the heart of the forest. Aldon said as he continued to walk And rushing will do me no good either, I have to assume that there are beasts lurking in every shadow.

Despite the monsters lurking all around him Aldon continued his journey towards the heart of Nemus in a nonchalant manner. Aldon heard a rustling all around him it was evident that he was about to be ambushed. Aldon saw a beast pounce and reacted by running up onto a tree and rebounding onto the beast with a strong punch which incapacitated it. Aldon Then saw five more feline creatures suround him. In a single moment they all pounced Aldon jumped up and pulled himself onto a tree branch barely fast enough to dodge the closest one. All of the feilne creatures struck one another which Aldon saw as an opportunity to take out the two on the top of the pile. He dropped down with a strong stomp to kill one and a punch to the neck to take out the next feline. three down and three to go Aldon thought before he said "Aw come on, attack me. Here kitty kitty kitty, here kitty."

Aldon grew impatient of waiting for the felines to attack again, after they had circled for a minute or two. "Fine have it your way. BANG!" Aldon hollered as The three felines exploded form an enchantment Aldon had cast. Aldon then continued on his way towards the center of the forest, as he picked up a good fifty rocks and put them in a leg pouch. Aldon proceded to enchant the rocks with various things on his way towards the center. Aldon sang as he walked "I'm off to see the spirit, the wonderful spirit of Nemus"

Aldon continued to collect small rocks into the hundreds and procede to enchant and put those rocks into every puch and bag readily accessible by Aldons hands. Aldon continued collecting rocks until he could hold no more rocks in any of his pouches. "Nice I literally have infinite magical energy in here" Aldon remarked as he was collecting rocks. When he was finished finding rocks Aldon found his way into the core of Nemus where at least 1000 creatures of many diferent types were looking to kill Aldon's mind. Aldon noticed that they were all surounding the tree comparable in size to the great cherry tree, which Aldon was sleeping on in real life.

Aldon grabed two handfulls of rocks which would each light on fire, freeze a creature, or explode, Etc. on impact. He threw the rocks at all the closets monsters in a spray as they began to attack Aldon. He then started throwing rocks one by one at the monsters knowing each one would kill a mionster in a different way, ranging from poison, to rotting their insides during the battle. Aldon threw a single rock at a bear looking creature, which then began to attack the creatures it was fighting alongside only a second ago. Aldon then pelted a rock at a giant spider which proceded to catch fire and die slowly in the flames.

A giant wolf jumped through the fire to get to Aldon, ti which Aldon replied with two rocks causing the animal to begin roting and explode all at once. He the notices a horde of felines rushing at him to which he thew a barage of rocks at taking the entire group out in seconds. Aldon then climbed a smaller tree to get a better area from which he could throw rocks. He the proceeded to pelt another three wolves.

Aldon began casting an enchantment, which he liked to call hellfire, around the entire area off the tree. He did this knowing it would take a long time to cast but it would destroy every creature around the tree and probably the tree itself. Aldon began taking rocks between his index finger and his thumb nail and shooting them at unhuman speeds, moving his fingers into the shape of a gun after every shot "Bang! Blam! Boom headshot!" Aldon yelled as he shot three rocks at a few creatures. Aldon was now taking multiple creatures out with each rock with the way he was throwing them. Aldon jumped off the tree as he threw a single rock which was enchanted with spell that would blast through anything in it's path and that it did. That single rock took out at least thirty creatures and a good ten trees.

Aldon saw a Chimera like beast almost three stories tall charging at him while breathing fire at Aldon. "Well ain't you just a real hot shot?" Aldon joked as he reached for a rock enchanted with lighting.
"A flash of lightining and you will be sunder,
at the power of on single rock this giant beast will go under.
A quick throw is all I do,
and this great beast will end up in two.
A breif flash of death,
and it will draw it's terminal breath."
Aldon Rhymed "Are you ready to die freind?" Aldon shot the rock but it did not seem to fly to the beast. There was a breif but large crack of thunder and a light show of lighting, in that same instant the beast disintegrated. "Who is next in line?" Aldon said smugly as the beast turned to ashes.

Aldon opened a pouch made from a somewhat large peice of cloth and threw it in the air. As the pouch unraveled every rock that was in it began to fall. Aldon grabed each rock as it reached the height of his head and threw it in a seemingly random direction. Aldon caught the cloth and saw that not a single rock hit the ground, but that about twenty yards in a circle around him had no beasts at all just corpses. Aldon noticed that even with all the corpses around it seemed for every beast he killed another one took it's place. "Seems I just need to stall until hellfire is cast" Aldon remarked as he reached for some more rocks.

Aldon grabed a rock in each hand an took a breif break before the beasts charged for another assault. When a coyote like creature jumped at Aldon, Aldon replied with a swift kick to the face followed with a strong punch. He then threw a rock at a giant rat. Aldon then noticed that he had no more rocks to throw after wasting so many clearing a cricle around him. "Seems you liked the appetizer but now it's time for the main course." Aldon said as all of the bandages around his body were forced to tear off of his body.

Aldon ran towards a gathering of felines seemingly at the speed of a lightning strike. In a single instant Aldon took out twenty felines while ony seeming to run through the crowd. "A real rush knowing that I can do this with no limitations." Aldon remarked as he took out fifty wolves. In the real world I could do this, but I would put myself in a coma simply by using it for more than a second. Not that a second isn't long enough with this power. Aldon thought as he flew through a crowd of over 200 beasts killing each as he passed.

Aldon started running full speed to which the air replied with a loud crack and the forest replied woth an echo. Aldon ran all around the tree killing every beast around the tree. However, every time he was at one side of the tree, the beasts on the other side had all ready regenerated. Damn they are being replaced, and barking fast too.

Aldon decided to attack the tree at the center of Nemus. Aldon continued at full speed and turned to the tree however when he was within five feet of the tree Aldon was hit back with as much force as he would have hit. "Brilliant defense mechanism seems hellfire will have to do it or I am lost" Aldon said not phased by getting hit with his own force. Aldon restarted his attack on the ceatures to kill them as they regenerated.

Unless... My galeforce sprint can take it down but the chances of that are low so I'll save it. Aldon thought as he stopped and took a break from killing creatures as they regenerated. Aldon almost fell to the ground but caught hiself before falling He then remarked "What's this? Either my mind is geting tired or my real body is slowly geting hurt as this goes on." Aldon fell to the ground no longer able to stand. "Guess I fail huh?" Aldon inquired rehtoricaly.

"Not like you to give up" A figure standing over Aldon said

"Not like you to intervine in personal matters Tim" Aldon retorted

"Just playing my role in the game of life my friend" Tim said as he disapeared

"Guess I should get up before I get eaten." Aldon said as he struggled to sit up "But one thing I figured out after a breif rest. This  does not simulate me having infinite magical power but having much more power than I currently do." Aldon stood himself up and climbed up a tree.

"I can use hellfire but with this much power and not enough time I should advance to Phoenix of a down." Aldon pumped out all of his magical energy into his enchantment circle as he climbed to the top of the tree. Aldon looked down and saw all of the mosnters clawing at the bottom of the tree but only a few actually making it up.

Aldon climbed higher as he continued to cast his magical circle. "Well as they say what goes up must come down" Aldon said as he cast an encahntment on the tree which caused it to attack the creatures which were after him. Aldon then continued on to say "Exept me I can go as high as I want"

The creatures bagan to back away from the tree and circle around it as to wait for an opening. "Aw come on up here I won't bite" Aldon joked before thinking but the tree might. Aldon then stopped climbing and sat at the top of the tree.

Aldon then began to pump every last drop of his magical energy into his phoenix of a down enchantment. Aldon continued to sit at the top of the tree as he looked at the tree of Nemus. "Funny my enchantment has phoenix in the name when it stops creatures from regenerating... Might have to re-think that name. Now however it is time to put my encahntment into effect. Aldon said as he put his enchantment into effect.
