Your boots disapear and instead you yank on your wires until two claws slide perfectly over your hands; "You're going to die in front of everyone princess..." You say as you advance just above a walk.Magma chunks are tossed, but you barely move, just short little skips to the side and short hops backwards enough to dodge them. "Any last words?" She screams as she slams a club across in a wide arc, you face the side and slash down in 6 parralel cuts. Her face visibly pales as you leap towards her and stab deep into her gut. You begin climbing up her front like some kind of deranged abseiler while she screams from the deep cuts.She falls, you could finish her. But instead you leap back, letting the wires run until they tauten. Then you use all your muscles to pull her back to her feet with claws still embedded, you have her like a cruel marionette.You laugh long and loud, cackling like you haven't done in months.> DEALERS DUE> SKYFALL> STORM OF SAWS> Write in an emotion for it's special move

>>858514> DEALERS DUE
>>858595>>858540>>858525"DEALER'S DUE!" You shout, your claws and wire disapearing to be replaced by overlarge steel fists. Your knuckles rev as the blades in them cry out for blood.Familiar black energy forms around you, the purple sparks of lightning running through it doing little to distract you form the coalescing caressing infernal energy. You step forward and two more of you slide out of the black energy; two all black oily shades mirroring you down to the crazed look in your red eyes. By the time you've taken your next step you are the point of a six starborn strong wedge.You can see the chieftan's daughter fighting the urge to scream as you charge her. She tries to punt you as you sprint towards her giggling. The size of her foot is nothing before your strength and your punch embeds your saw-knuckles in the sole of her foot.One of your clones lands an uppercut, another rams her other foot with a double axe handle. The remaning three unleash a thunderous combination of punches that both shred and pummel the woman until her abdomen is laid bloody and bare from the destruction of her clothing. You can feel your moment.You step back, tearing your right fist free and dashing to the side even as one of your clones does the opposite on the other side. Fur arms hold her arms out wide and another four keep her from falling as you and your final clone both leap into the air and slam her skull between a pair of titanic left hooks.Your clones fade even as the impact sends onlookers sprawling, A cloud of dust slowly parting to reveal the aftermath.A Giant, with a skull so crushed that she may as well be decapitated and a giggling demon clad in her foe's blood. The red in her eyes seeming to glow as she looked around for more.Some unblooded flee.Others are stunned by the way you dismantled one of their elite.You feel your friend's pleasure that he got such a mighty soul.Good.> NEXT> Two blood victories, guess you're an adul giant now.

>>858715>>858638>>858630"Next." You whisper. Nobody moves. "Next,next,next,next,neeeeeexxxxttttt!" You cryout before a screaming giant charges you with a halberd. He's barely over 7 foot tall, probably a kid.But you don't care, just nimbly jumping back to position opposite. "WITNESS?" You ask, noticing a woman shakily raise her arm.He charges you intending to skewer your face with that huge halberd. You grin.> Let him hit you> Time to die kiddo> Write-In

>>859139>>858794>>858747You meet his charge with your saw in standard form, you duck and dip and weave and dodge. A smile on your face the whole time. He raises his halberd to slam down upon you amidst the craters created in the aftermaths of your previous battles, but this would be hero is stopped as your wire tightens around him."Time to die kiddo." You say as you recall the saw.The blades spins around as it traces back the path of your wire, the revs barely audible over the young giant's screaming asd his flesh is stripped from his bones in a display of mechanical efficiency that sets your heart aflutter.You turn before the boy has hit the ground, already beckoning for another challenger. It's only that which lets you dodge the warhammer that was enroute with your face."General! Have you come to inspect my work!" You say as you skid back in to the dirt."Violet. Stand down." He says coldly, letting his warhammer fall to the ground in an earth shattering display of power."Oh, so you want a rematch?" You reply, keeping your feet from months of fighting alongside that srength. "This time you don't have your soldiers backing you."He looks almost sad as his eyes meet yours, enough to give you pause for a second. "This time I can't hold back." He says.You hesitate but the thought of fighting richter gets you all fired up. You really can't remember coming closer to your limits than when he came to bring you in the last time you had fun like this.> You're excited> You're cautious> You're going to come out on top this time> Write-In

>>859267>>859374>>860069You inhale and exhale, wanitng to play it cautious after the last time you went up against him. "Honour duel. The whole town is our borders Violet. Do you accept?" He asks as you both begin slowly pacing towards one another.You have your saw by your side and he drags his hammer. "Witness?" You ask and see a storm of giant hands raised immeditaly. Good. Everyone should be witness to this.You both stop just outside striking distance, one more deep breath as the two of you meet gazes. His stormy blue crashing against your blazing red. Your movements are precise and his are in perfect tandem.You dash in and he dashes backwards, huge hammer swining high and forcing you to duck but still you come.Your saw comes in from the side and he spins his body around, using the new momentum for an upswing. You Leap off the ground and ram your feet into his hammer, riding it up with wall walking and launching into the air. The shapr wind flies past your cheek as you rise higher and higher and higher. A purple and red star in the afternoon sky. You flip, facing down to the ground where you see Richter raising his rifle to the sky one handed, you know that even if he isnt the best shot you're going to be dealing with a full drum in a moment.Gravity begins to remember you exist.> Deflection time> Storm of Saws> See if you can cut his rifle on the way down> Write-In

You cry as your weapon splits into countless buzzsaws of purple energy.They begin slamming down as Richter's heavy machine gun responds with thunderous reports. You tuck your arms and legs and begin careening to the ground behind a saw, watching as it is shot to pieces enroute to the ground. The saws overwhlem the gunfire and the General is forced to fall back from his position, taking a strike from one of your saws across his leg as he does. You land, crouched like a panther as purple saws rain down into the ground, hiding your position amidst the great gouges and dust clouds your attack has kicked up.> Hit fast and hard through ther dust> DEALERS DUE and set up some clones> Richter really knows how to get your engine running...> Write-In

>>860984>>860974>>860956>>860899>>860894>Sorry for delay, nephew being a prick and I had to ground him.You move as quick as you can, boots coming into existense on your feet as you sprint so fast you displace some of the dust in your wake. You kick out at where Richter should be, only to hit nothing. Riding out the momentum you spin and bring a knee up to block his hammer as he tries to counter. You fly back a few feet and have to rely on the saw in the sole of your boot to slow you down as your right leg is tasked with matching your foe's flurry of bone breaking strikes. Each impact's shockwave sends jolts up your body and spine whilst the surrounding giants are doing their utmost to remain standing. You come to a stop and pivot, forcing a block as your roundhouse nearly decapitates the General. You leap into the air and kick at his mid section twice, putting your comarade on the defensive.You smile as you flip forward, a dveetsating axe kick from your steel boots finding purchase on Ricter. The smile is replaced by a grimace as his hammer pummels you. Crumpling in mid air you hear a series of booms and see walls rapidly getting further away until you are buried in rubble.Emerging from the pile, you find yourself in what looks like a giant sized washroom.

>>861002>>861007>>861008You promptly exit from the hole in the wall you entered from you and walk up the neighbouring wall. Giant buildings mean giant roofs and more height advantage. That's good. In fact that's more than good, because it means you get to pick your moment. But your hardware doesn't work as is. So you switch it to you rnewest toys... ones that even Richter isn't privvy to.But you scale the giant's houses and begin leaping form huge improbably designed roof to huge improbably designed roof. It's halfway across town before you see Richter dragging his hammer through formerly pretty cobbled streets. The ditch he's leaving is flanked by Giant to each side eager to see the winner of the contest.Obstacles.Innocents.You don't really care though, this is about Pride for you.

>>861165>>861080>>861074You move paralel to Richter, making sure that you're hidden behind chimneys and outcroppings.The giants fan out and fall back the longer Richter's march becomes. Eventually he makes it to your landing site and waits. For the first time he looks uncertain, he doesn't know if you died under that rubble or not. He stands on the threshold, hesitating.And you silently squeeze two triggers, sending two spinning buzzsaws to their destination. The gungry blades slam into his back and pierce the armour with ease, Richter falling to the ground face first.You grin. > Finish him off.> Stay on the roof and enjoy your victory.> Write-In

You're just out cold, I didn't kill you?" You beg.The Giants come closer. You can hear the mutterings."Demon.""Monster.""Murderer.""Unstoppable."Facing your audience, you no longer feel the showman's flair you did. The joy, everything is gone."Violet." You hear before you feel your legs fail to support your weight.

He stumbles back and you both exhale in unison.Your legs shake, his face is paling from the two wounds in his back."I gave you a chance Violet. To prove you weren't that beast anymore." He says as you both size each other up.You're panting slightly, "and here I thought you brought me here because you needed that beast. I thought you understood me." "I do now. You're too dangerous. A demon wearing a pretty face. For what it's worth I'm not enjoying this." "Bullshit. You're loving this as much as I am. You haven't stretched your legs like you have today or the first time we fought." You twist your head and pop your neck. "So for what it's worth I am enjoying this."You steady yourself and charge.The last words you hear, "Max Density hammer Grade six." The last thing you see is your headless body and Richter following through a swing that could shatter mountains.And your hands are clasped over your ears as Hona and a troll roar at each other in what you hope is civil discourse.> Faint> Stumble (DC 18)> Write-In
