    I've seen these threads on /v/ and I thought /tg/ would be way better at them.
    Craft a fantastically epic boss battle, one which would serve as the ultimate/penultimate encounter of a campaign, and provide the following:

    >1: The Monologue/quote just before the start of the battle.
    >2: The Setting of the encounter. Be as detailed as you like.
    >3: The music that sets the theme. Not always necessary but a nice touch.
    Optional: Add a picture that captures the feel of your character.

    "So what, now you're going to kill me? Weren't you listening at all? It's over. Done. Finished. You can look out the window. The earth is gone. Don't look at me like that. It's your fault too you know. And now it's just you and me... And 30 million embryos in cryo-stasis. Think about it Gabe. You and I will be gods of the new world. We have the technology, they will have nothing. We can live forever and rule over the entire world. This is what we dreamed of. A perfect world, a paradise to raise a race of perfect people. And we are the gardeners, the guardians of paradise. Plucking the weeds from the sprouts of human nature. Until all that is left are roses"

    "So... That's how it is then. I tried to reason with you. But it looks like with only two humans left in the entire species even we can't stop the senseless cycle of violence and hatred. That's why I'm doing this you know. To cleanse this taint. Oh well. It would have been nice you know. But I guess being lonely is part of being God. And there's one too many gods here."

    "You damned fool. You were supposed to die! The Arc Fiend was supposed to kill you! You would have been a legend, a saint, an icon. The people would have rallied behind your martyrdom as a symbol of hope. The Holy Order would have once again been the guiding hand for man. But now there is no great evil to make men tremble and no symbol for them to hide behind for shelter. Only a man. An imperfect mortal man. Men cannot be led by other men. Only ideals. I'm sorry, but I can't let you leave this chamber. What you have told me will never leave this room. I am sorry, but you died on that mountain, and with your sacrifice you sealed the devil himself away. But he shall always be there, waiting. And so shall the Church. Your death will serve the Order far greater than your life ever did. I'll spare you your last rites. You already know you won't be needing them."

    "Being trapped in dementia has its advantages. I'm not as insane as you might think. I just... see things differently. I can't see the way things are now, but I can catch glimpses of how things might be. It's very odd, to learn to see every action by all the different futures it makes. And all the possibilities it destroys. To only be able to see the consequences makes it very hard to make a decision. So early on I decided that I didn't care much for other people's destinies and how I changed them. Only my own. Ah, but if you could see now what I see. Every single life thread is connecting in the air between us. It's a beautiful thing, to watch a world be bound together in a single breath. No matter what comes of this moment, the world will be forever changed and shaped by whatever actions take place at this point. Millions of lives who have never known our names will be changed in billions of tiny ways. And all it takes… is a little... tiny... cut..."

    "I've been watching you, you know. All this time you've been working so hard to destroy my plans, I was observing. Not just how you fight, but WHY you fight. How you interact with your friends and family, how you risk your life to save total strangers. How they love you for it, and are willing to defy my authority to help you. You remind me so much of what I wanted to be before I became king. I wanted to be the people's hero, the one fighting the injustices of the system, trying to make life better for the common man. But that dream is dead for me, and in its place I find you, a man who is everything I've always wanted to be. My God, I hate you so much. You know what really terrifies me though?

    "Tch. Liberty. Is that what you fight for? The freedom to do wrong? The freedom to shake off responsibility? The freedom to take what you don't deserve? I stifled these people, hero, and I admit it. I crushed their hopes, I trampled on their dreams, and I destroyed resistance wherever it reared its ugly head, to keep them in line. To keep them from committing evils against each other. I controlled their lives to keep them in check, and I drew their hate towards me, so that they might stop hating each other. But I never foresaw that their hatred would forge a champion like yourself.

    When I am gone, and when freedom returns to this city, just you watch. With no one watching their every move, this value that you worship above all others, this "liberty", will once again bring shame to the human race. Their eyes will quickly turn on each other, and hatred will reign once more. But at least you'll be free, right?

    It was about time. This world we created lies perpetually trapped in an inescapable wall, confined both in time and space. Every second, every minute, every fleeting moment you and I live in our lives is bounded to an unexplainable cycle. You stand there, weapon in hand, ready to strike your target. There's no hesitation, there's no mistake in your execution. Every time, I die and every time I watch as you carry on this useless cycle. But no more. It takes just one degree of disorder to break it, and it doesn't begin with me. Because even now I am but a memory of a past foe, and you are but an eternal singularity that refuses to die, and has instead chosen to reformulate the world to your fitting. Do you see now how it breaks? How your will wavers when you hear the truth? It is no coincidence: you failed only once before. And I plan to remind you of that again.

    You've been questing for so long. But, throughout your campaign, you've been stalked by an deadly foe (see pick) who has attacked and almost killed you on several occasions, defeating you utterly each time and sparing your life for seemingly no reasons. At other times, you have caught this armored figure watching you from a distance, unmoving to attack. You've been plagued by this ghost, this stalker, your entire quest. He has on occasion stepped in to SAVE your life, but for the most part he has either watched your progress or apparently tried to kill you, only stopping just before the killing blow for unknown reasons.

    But you've done it. You've finished your quest. You've toppled the overlord. You've slain the evil witch. You've saved your kingdom. You've saved the WORLD. As you rejoice your success in your quest, you turn from your rejoicing friends and see your armored stalker a distance away from you.

    As you approach him, he continues.

    "I have lived a long life. Longer then you may comprehend. Though early in my experience I rejoiced my apparent immortality, I have become more rational since. I have been through much, during my stay in this world. I have witnessed so very, very much. I've seen cities sacked, I've seen armies destroyed, I've seen nations nations overrun, and continents obliterated. I've won wars, and lost battles; kingdoms have knelt before me, and I before kingdoms. The amount of people I've killed with my bare hands outnumbers entire nations. I have inflicted and received tragedies greater than you can imagine. Thus world has risen to greatness, fallen, risen higher than before, and fallen lower than it ever was, and through it all, I've been there, waiting. Waiting for someone to slay me as the monster I am. I've been waiting for you.

    "I discovered your talent before you even recognized it. I followed you throughout your entire quest, your entire career, waiting, sometime testing, for the moment you might achieve the skill necessary to end my wretched existence and wipe my stain from the earth. But, I must admit, I have grown cynical in my quest to die. I have sustained a thousand lifetimes of scars and lived to tell the tales. I dare say I may bear a few more."

At the first part you speed up the tower chasing and fighting the guy at max speed while being shot at by his air ships of DOOM. Then for the second part you fight him upon his own warship and cruisers while your airships join into the chaos (explosions A+++). and for the finale you battle him alone atop the tower whilst a spinning vortex of energy strikes out at both of you.

    Win and probably original. This reminds me of an idea for a setting I came up with. It would start with our world, in which god stops existing. I don't refer to the god of any religion, this god is not a conscious being in any way we can imagine, it is order, boundaries, the universal laws that hold the universe together. The god is a every regular shape, existing in all n-dimensions separately and simultaneously. With the end of god, all straight-lined or even-curved (following a circle, ellipse, or parabola) structures violently contort into irregularity, destroying most man-made objects worldwide. Weather becomes entirely unpredictable, and force of gravity fluctuates like air pressure (Low gravity front coming in, secure your valuables and loved ones). All creatures gain limited omnipotence, small changes they desire and fully imagine in their body or immediate surroundings instantly occurring. Larger changes can be made depending on factors explained later.

    Time and higher dimensions begin to meld together, people, places, animals, and things which exist in the past or future, some from possible realities which never came to pass. Spatial dimensions become scrambled up in places, flatlander shit and tesseracts and such exist in places, like the world is glitching out. The degree of omnipotence possessed by beings depends on their intelligence. The difference in ability between a genius human and a mentally retarded human would not be significant, though one would be able to conceptualize things more clearly and rapidly to change them accordingly. The difference in power between a human and a mouse would be great, however. The death of a being causes its power to diffuse outwards and into nearby beings if they are there, Highlander style. Shards of god are discovered, indestructible and immutable regular solids, which grant great power and enhanced awareness/intelligence to their bearers. People fight for those, of course. Fun, chaotic setting, people fuck with reality, shit is crazy, everyone is a god. I have used 'power' to refer to the degree of omnipotence. Talking about degrees of omnipotence other than complete is contradictory in definition the first place, but I don't know how else to express that.

    Oh my god... That's fantastic. The immortal seeking death cliche isn't really played upon enough in campaigns. in fact, I don't think I've ever run or taken part in a campaign with one such. That's such a climatic battle that it could only take place after an incredibly long series of campaigns.

I built this nation from nothing. I did not force your people to live here, I invited them. You came when I had need of labor and you had need of money. You have no right to cast me out of my own home because I have no more to give you and no more to ask of you. Now you are but guests, overstaying your welcome. You realize your error in coming here, don't you? Any of your men could have done the job as well as you. Of course, they would have died like you will. But with your death, the rebellion dies.

Then I will do as wiser, greater men than me did in the past once they conquered all they wished to conquer. I will establish a single, official religion that everyone will be forced to follow, until, a few generations down the line, there will be no one ostracized or discriminated about for reasons of faith. It will be but the beginning. science and enlightenment will reach every corner of the world, distributing knowledge equally until no child goes to bed hungry, until no man dies out from cold on the streets.

    We will have peace, as a race, at last, and then, maybe... we will turn towards the stars.

    "So, it comes down to this. All your power, your armies, your fleets, your bodyguards, all gone. Now it's just you and me.

    You fear me, don't you Tsar? I see it in your eyes. You're terrified of me. You fear me for what I am. You fear me, because I've seen the gates of Hell. I've been past them and seen that nightmare realm. And let me tell you - you are going there.

    But you know what I think scares you the most? I think what scares you the most, is that you created me. It was YOU that started this god-forsaken war. It was YOU that attacked my country. It was YOU that killed my family. It was YOU that gave me the inspiration to join the air fleet. It was YOU that gave the order to kill thousands of innocents. It was YOU that gave the order to shoot me down. It was YOU that forced them to bring me back. And most of all, it was YOU that killed the woman I loved!"

    At the start he's advancing upon the Tsar, absorbing shot after shot from a pair of antique pistols without seeming to notice. By the time he starts his accusations, he's hitting the Tsar every time he says 'you', crushing bones with the force of each blow.

    Really? You're honestly asking me why I did all that horrible stuff? Look at me! (The BBEG looks pretty unhinged at that point. His face keeps changing, but he always looks seriously fucking insane.) Do I LOOK like I have any clue what the fuck I'm doing? Christ, man, I just woke up one day with all these powers, and, well, sex never interested me, so what the hell was I going to do? I have the power of a god, but no interest in getting laid! Money? I've been rich my entire life, why would I want more? Make the world a better place? I tried that, believe me. Politicians and warlords and kings and everyone else kept fucking things up as fast as I could fix them! So I just said 'Fuck it!' And here we are.
    Anyway, you were asking me why? That was the long answer. Short answer? I 'unno.

    Ya, I got the idea from Watchmen (the comic) and Hero (the movie), and decided to mix them together to get something similar but unique.

    Sure, it is evil NOW. But Chine was a lot of little countries that kept killing each other for God knows how long before it was conquered and unified. I´m sure all his enemies thought the first emperor was a monster, but a couple thousand years down the line, the chinese think of him as a hero.

    Alexander the great did more than just conquer nations, he funded cities, built libraries, and made huge strides to bring reason into the world.

    Ghengis Khan took the fratricidal mongol tribes, got them together, and conquered everything he knew, then built schools, libraries, and a huge empire.

    Muhammad conquered and then instituted Islam as the sole religion of his empire, precisely to end the carnage of people against people for reasons of faith.

    Conquerors are ALWAYS "evil" from the point of view of the conquered... right then. But if they succeed, if they carve a big enough empire, a few centuries down the line, they´re called heroes.

    I imagine, if someone managed to conquer the entirety of our world, we would call him a monster, as well. But a couple thousand years from now, when humans living in Alpha Centaury looked at history and read and learn about our wars, about how we killed eachother for a couple miles in the middle of nowhere, about the proper way to worship God, or about stupider reasons yet, they would all think "thank you God for sending CONQUEROR along!"

    It would - however the hero was not made by the villian.

    The hero was a pilot in the nation that the Tsar declared war on, and was killed trying to defend a refugee ship fleeing the invasion force. They were so desperate for skilled pilots that they brought him back to lead their pilots.

    So when he says 'you made me' he doesn't mean it literally.

    As for the song, it's badass, and the lyrics mostly fit, but rap doesn't really fit the setting very well. I think that in instrumental version, with sounds of steam and whirring gears added would be PERFECT though.

    It's the eventual end to this:

Cities, states, countries?! Where will it end? When all of this is done, you won't have anyone to rule. No souls to grovel at your feet as you turn the planet into a paridise.
    You will fall into corruption, just as I have.

Realize that I am fully aware that you are more than that, and I always have known this, but the fact remains that there shall always be people that still observe you as such.

    Dead silence.

    The villain(A martially skilled, but normal human, as all people are in the setting), his army routed completely and slain near to the man, his war lost, slowly approaches the hero across a sprawling, windswept field of long grasses and a few gently rolling hills. The lone Hero meets his foe at the foot of the largest hill for many miles around, atop which is a single standing stone. The Hero is wounded already, his veins drained utterly but for the will and adrenaline he floods through his body with every shallow, pained breath. The clouds shift lazily just before the silent duel begins, and a broad shaft of light falls on the hero's back, his eyes brightening, his skin electrified, his hand biting down like iron once more on the shaft of his spear as the light falls in his foe's eyes. One last time...

    Deep underground in a large chamber of obsidian. In the center of the room stands a gargantuan humanoid figure carved in place from the purest of the stone. An all too familiar male figure lies on the ground before it, perhaps dead already. At the opposite end of the room a throne thrusts up from the floor. Upon it sits a powerful figure that seems human at first glance. His lack of breath and the faint glimmer of metal reveal his true form. He rises from his seat as you enter, almost glad to see you.

    "Ah, just in time. Have you come to see what we have wrought together? In mere moments the crystals will finish their work and our creation will stride across this pitiful world bringing order where there is weakness. For centuries mankind has struggled against its foes. Now I will purge the weakness that has plagued the flesh. In death this world lays the foundations for the new, and I shall be it's God!

    "Look now, see the surprise I have for you. Down there, see him? For decades he has eluded me, but your efforts paid off better than you thought. Now the first to fall shall be my oldest enemy, or should I say your only hope of stopping me?

    "Ah, yes, old man. Shocked? I knew all about your betrayal. Surely you must have suspected. No doubt you thought that with your help he would finally be able to defeat me. Come now, struggle to live and I shall show you how weak flesh truly is."

    2) Two men close as brothers, torn violently apart by lies and betrayal and death. One loved a woman he should not have and slew a king to keep secret that love. The other knew the truth of it and was framed. Poison, rebellion, knives in the dark, secrets and murder and black magic. All for this. All for naught.

    They stand on top of a tower in the city they once swore to protect. A city which burns hotly beneath them, the flames climbing ever higher as armies rage below. The only thing burning hotter is the fury of these two men.

    They stand in a fencing circle, blades as naked as their intentions.

    Non-evil villains everywhere. Do you guys really use that many morally gray characters?
    I mean they're nice and all and in moderation add some spice to an encounter, but if every villain is just a hero with a conflicting ideal then wouldn't it get tiring after a while?
    It kind of undermines the feeling of being Heroes to begin with.

    Well who doesn't? The PC is the brainchild and projection of the player. Ultimately, though their character is slightly molded by the world you place them in, it will be the mind of the player that constructs every facet of their being and gives them life.
    The Villain is the closest thing to the GM's PC, so to speak. They are a character conceived entirely within your own mind and molded by a world created by you into an unbounded potential character. Other NPCs do this to an extent, but a villain (especially a recurring one) needs even more back story and motivation and traits that define them.

    Hell, my favorite part of GMing is when the player characters begin to understand the villain and his/her/its goals. Seeing how they interact with the villain is one of my personal favorite parts of any adventure.

    None of my villain will ever hold a candle to that Skeletor though. God damn.

    You speak of Transhumanity as a strong species, tempered by the hellish nature of the universe. We have not seen but a blink of the horror that may become of us. The minds that lead our race believe that we have reached some kind of transcendence, that we have conquered our mortality and now stand to do great things; all of them fools. Immortality is pointless if your only tool to to realize it is a mortal mind. The neural nets in which we establish our minds are nothing but copies of the mortal brains forged over billions of years of evolution, of growth via mortality. The very way we think is obsolete, and in the absence of biological evolution we may spend millenia without ever growing or changing. But you and I know all too well that stagnation is death, it is the way of the universe. A lucky few of us have recognized this coming doom, and realize that the survival of our species lays not in the pursuit of improving Transhumanity, but what lays beyond. To change one's shell is one thing, to change the essence of one's mind is where the true transcendence lies. Yet so many cling to their mortality as if it still matters, blindly fighting change like some evil force. They simply do not understand the dark fate that lies before them. These are the masses that will drive our species to oblivion. I would do both them and the rest of the species a favor; grant them their mortality and the rest of us will bask in our true transcendence. Let the mortals die as their mother Terra has, let us Gods rule the heavens.

    Ha! Don't act surprised, I didn't harm her. I know you'd never abandon a comrade, not even if the whole world was against you.

    I could see it in your eyes, the same look that I used to see in the mirror, a long time ago.

    I don't know what I'm fighting for anymore, I don't even think the captain even remembers what it means to stand for something. Something has changed her, changed all of us.

    But my lo... My loyalty knows no bounds. She's my captain 'till the end, and ever will I guard her, unto death.

Never suspected that, in time, the tedium of rulership would reduce me to such a decrepit old lizard, a creature who truly feared revolt. A miser who hid behind armies.

    The sea bulges ominously as a great winged beast of unimaginable proportions rises from the depths. Smaller flying rays emerge in its wake, but none are so massive and terrifying as the one which rises before the vessel, transfixing all aboard. There is no sound as the titan pulls itself from the water fully, until it lets out a single long, agonizing cry which splits the air:

    <The Leviathan erupts with a screech that sounds of thunder and shattering glass. All take a fortitude save (DC 32) or suffer 10d8 sonic damage (successful save halves). Untended crystalline objects shatter.>

    The beast turns to the sky and circles above, churning the sky and the sea below into a fervor. As lightning flashes above and the waves crash against the hull, the beast turns and begins its decent.

    My country lay within a vast desert, when the sun rose into the sky a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world. And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came the wind carried the same thing... Death. But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin. I... Coveted that wind, I suppose.

    It can only be called fate... That here, I would again gather the three with the crests... That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder... That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down... The power of the gods... The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted! Already the crest of wisdom is mine. All that remains...

    Do not fear. I will not kill you, I merely have need of the power that dwells within you... Now! Let us put an end to that which binds us together!

    Gods! Hear that which I desire! Expose this land to the rays of the sun once more! Let them burn forth! Give Hyrule to ME!!!

    1. Surprised to see me again? Perhaps the legends were true, that the great wyrm couldn't ever be truly killed? Even I believed them to be true.

    But it is not so. My body is destroyed by your hands. Nothing remains of the dragon that threatened to destroy the planet.

    But hatred is a powerful force, one so strong and so vile that even death can't wipe pure spite away. And so I remain. A shadow held together only by one singular purpose.

    Even still, I am fading fast. At the end of this battle, I will slip away too. But I assure you, you will not escape death this time. You will never close the gate, and the Elemental Chaos will flood the mortal plane in a cataclysmic fire not seen since the planets were forged.

    Now then, heroes, prepare yourselves. For this spirit shall not rest until each of you falls. The world is ending. Know this in your very souls, and tremble.

    Setting. The heros (PCs) are sent out to find out why the quarentine team sent north of the borders of their home kingdom has failed to report when they ought to have done so. Upon arrival, they find every town or village or even their comrade's camp vacant, untouched. There are a few bodies, but there's no sign of disease or trauma.

    Over the course of the next few days, their contingent begins to lose moral, and are shocked to find that one of their own has wandered off, only to be found hung by his jacket less than a mile from their post.

    THis continues; inexplicable deaths, stranger murmers, and the odd suspicion of each other without know what signs to look for.

    It culminates in only the PC's surviving with the NPC's invariably either dead or dissappeared, some from right in front of their eyes. PC's presumably try to depart, but realize their path is only a circle back to where they'd started. Magic seems sparsely accessable. Even speaking the words and moving through the motions of a spell seems to fail more often than not.

    Then, a single figure appears on the edge of their vision. They call to him, and he dissappears, reappearing closer only a moment later. Again, fade, reappear, closer each time.

    Then he doesn't reappear. Instead, the group looks down to see themselves dissappearing.

    Now finally give them a will-save. Presumably a few will make it, and begin to understand. An illusionist, and enchanter of some sort has been singling them out one by one, for reasons unknown.

    After a long crawl through the town, looking to get away from the ruis of the town. The antagonist allows them to stumble into a new area, where the bodies of their former comrades and the people of the town have been laid to rest. An examination of them shows that they are allive, but attempting to move them strains their breath, and pulling them away causes them to bleed profusely.

    And then they hear singing. They decide not to split the party, and run toward the source. Again, the figure, appearently dancing about the place. Weapons are raised, shots are fired, and he dissappears in a poof of smoke, appearing further.

    No sweat. It's not like 4chanarchive is a bad thing, anyway (I added another vote for archival there too). Suptg is arguably less exciting as it is cluttered with a LOT of mediocre threads. But the fact that it's so inclusive (without requiring multiple requests or an approval process) makes it better for our purposes, what with quest threads and ongoing gamedesign/worldbuilding projects.

    I hate you for taking an epic series boss line and shitting it up. Not just making it shittier once, but twice. The first fail was when you added 40kshit to it. The second fail was your own inability to understand what epic is, thereby being entirely unable to know what it means to craft an epic line. Your lame attempt at a copycat falls flat.

    "It's all a lie, you know. The afterlife, I mean. There's no heaven, no hell, only...I suppose they're parasites of a sort, feeding of the massed belief, the faith, output by all the creatures here. I believed, once. But when I died, with my hated foe still living, something in me broke. They welcomed me with open arms in "heaven", but I could see the truth.

    But that is not why I have done this. It is not out of some misguided attempt to starve these beasts, although I have accomplished this. It is not out of some lingering desire to better all living beings that I have killed so many people, burned and destroyed so many holy places.

    They wouldn't give her back to me. All through the years, I begged and prayed for my love to be returned to me, with no answer. And when I finally died? She still wasn't there. But I can bring her back from where she went.

    I have loved her since before your "great civilization" was a small camp on the riverbank. I would trade all of you, every last living being on this planet, for one last kiss. So come, Let this be the last fight."

    "This corrupted world is lost to a state of chaos and will never yield again to those who would force their will upon it. All the men of this world live in their fortified palaces built upon lies and delusions, thinking they will reclaim their ancestral lands and bring order to this malignant world. The truth is, they would only create a land as hostile as the one before it, snuffing out life through oppression as much as those before them snuff it out through indifference.

    "The only true way to restore balance is to remove all those who impose themselves upon the natural world. To let it begin anew, free of the prejudices of its current denizens. That is my purpose. I must cleanse the world of structure as much as I must cleanse it of entropy. The restored equilibrium will allow the world to live anew for many a millennium to come.

    You would stand before me, still? It is out of necessity alone that I will return balance upon this land. If you seek to prevent this, then I must banish you as well.

    The being, an animated tree of enormous proportions, stands in a sacred grove as a legion of fey flutter about his grown of leaves wildly. His very presence seems to cause life to grow about him. His face, though clearly defined is completely impartial. Wind blows ominously through the vale.

Did you see the pain in their eyes? I have seen that pain, and into the very depths of hell itself. The strength to bear that weight is the strength of a hero. So come at me heroes! Or will you stay your hands, unable to bear that burden?"

    Setting: The violently fluxing center of a dimensional storm, slowly engulfing the plane in which the party has been adventuring. Here, past, present, and infinite realities combine to create a nightmarishly incomprehensible landscape. At the center of the storm is a vast and sprawling city, polished clean metal and gleaming glass adorning scyscrapers higher than anything humanly imaginable. The city is populated by ghosts, specters of possibility both past and future. Atop a massive high-rise stands a being neither human nor demon; such concepts are meaningless here. He was a trickster, a joker, but now he is a seething mass of chaotic energy. His body has become crackling void-fire, and what were once his eyes are now holes into the vastness Beyond. What was previously his face is split by a massive, jagged grin.

    As the party arrives, Stage One:

    "Hhhhhh... It's all too much to take in. Despite all that's been thrown at you, despite reality as you know it ENDING, you think that you can change something. You are nothing. I am nothing. Nothing is everything, and everything will soon be nothing. But if it's a fight you want... I will be happy to oblige."

    At this, the smile on his face grows still larger, and he becomes a blur of motion and manic, screaming laughter.

    Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h44GjZ6Euk&feature=related

    Phase Two:

    Soon, the battlefield shifts to a massive rocket hurtling towards a bleak and arid landscape. All monologues are drowned out by the howling wind. The antagonist fights by turning his limbs into massive and elaborate weapons, which reveal a mechanical skeleton upon being destroyed.

    -Confronting The fallen General of Heladriel-

    In order to escape a seemingly against the odds battle, the group consisting of Wanderers, Warriors and two Archers take the risk and plunge into a downward spiral. They are welcomed by a hard landing onto the cold cavern floor. The cavern appears to be vast in scope and lit only by faint dragonflies. As they all gain balance, it seems almost as if a slight vibration can be felt on the cavern floor.
    The room is lit by a sudden influx swarming dragonflies all fluttering up to find exit. A huge eye rises from the depths of the cavern and glares down upon the group. A deep, yet slow and stumbling voice echoes the cavern.

    I have heard... I have heard.. you and your... colleagues. I have heard you all traverse the land above me, while I and confined here... bound by vicious law for my...errors against the ArchLord himself. I hoped that you would somehow stumble into the only domain I have known for the last ...century or so.. and now ... that you have, I will purge you... then my worth will be renewed in the eyes... of the ArchLord Heladriel...

    "Okay, let's just be honest with each other here. I had noble goals, and was willing to take morally questionable options when they were the most convenient. It probably didn't hurt that I didn't think anybody else would do it right. Whole 'if you want something done right,' thing, right? And you think I've crossed 'the line' some time back. You're probably right. However, do you think crossing that line was worth it to more quickly achieve my goals? Also, probably not. I, however, do.

    Neither one of us are going to back down from our positions, each one of us claims the moral high ground, so on, so forth, yada yada yada. So I guess we do the thing man's always done when faced with an impassse: kill somebody. So, as always, no hard feelings.

    I'll even let you go first."

    No, child, I am not a demon. We have defeated the demons, remember? You, brave and noble souls of this world, have defeated the demons. We have won. Evil, as far as your existence is concerned, is over.

    I pray not to alarm you, but the magic which floods this world was not left here merely for you children to play amid, and it was not merely for your wellbeing that we have come here to defend. This world is... it is like a bullet. A priceless silver bullet, precious and wondrous even though it must be consumed.

    Don't be afraid, child. For your service, we can find you a new world to live in. One of the dozen worlds we'll save in burning up just this one. No, we cannot bring all of your friends, but nor will they suffer. If we could give them more time, we would, but still they have had time to know perfect tranquility before their end, and such an end could not be more blessed.

    Oh, you do look afraid. Or, no.. angry? Be still, dearest child. We have delayed this until the eleventh hour, that this world might savor its reward. We can afford no more delays.

    SETTING: An idelic floating island, covered in alien flora and architecture, like a small piece of a surreal and distant world. It hovers in low orbit, from which the protagonists can witness a spider-web of leylines alighting to wrap around their world.

    >You that accuse me of being a mad. What right have you to judge what is sane and what is not?
    I have fought with the shadows on the edge of your mind.
    I have seen the faces that laugh at you in your nightmares.
    I have smelt the breath that issues from the mouth of humanity as it is now.
    I have heard the silent voices that make your spine tingle with dread.
    I have clashed with thoughts of the mind which would sear your soul to the core.
    I have bested horrors that chill with a gaze and tempt unreasoning terror.
    I have faced death eye to eye and faith to faith.
    I have stared into the eyes of insanity and met their all-consuming stare.
    I have seen all this in the human mind and soul, and destroyed it. I am a man who conquered himself.
    I have done all of this for you, for your protection, and the guarantee of a future for mankind.
    And yet you accuse me of being a madman, you who have never had your sanity tested so sorely.
    What right have you to call me insane, who have not heard the whisper of the dark in your ear?
    You are weak. Vulnerable. Human in your frailty

If one person could--would!--step forward and commit these atrocities, no one else would have to. And no one else would die. I've bloodied my hands, and blackened my soul, for this world. You have no idea how much you mean to me. I can't sleep at night. The only thing that keeps me going is knowing I've made a difference. And that if my work ends, people will suffer.

    ... ... I know where I'm going. What will happen when I die. I knew the best I could look forward to is going unknown, and passing from this world unmarked. If there's a hell, then I will be there.

    "So, before one of us die, tell me.
    What's it like to be loved?
    What's it like to know that you are part of the most important part of Creation?

    What's it like to be able to choose your destiny, to the most bitter consequence?

    What do you see when you look at me? Do you see perfection? That you are standing in front of the one of most magnificent beings you've ever seen??

    Do you truly think I had a choice to stand here, or that I had the choice to try and talk to you, dissuade you from eternal damnation?

    Just as your weapons don't choose when to kill,
    or as lies can be carefully crafted for your convenience,
    I stand here, in front of you.

    Come, let us decide this, if you must have your bloodshed.

But you didn't know that. They didn't have to know that! You, them, we all could have kept on living the beautiful lie, but instead you chose this.

    "The inherent flaw in your call for my death is that you consider me an evil man. What defines a man as evil? Is it waging war on vain, selfish kings? Using the dead for dangerous, exhaustive labor? Was it killing the woman you loved? The last one I find a little hard to believe--she was always mine, up to her dying breath. You couldn't see it from where you stand, the look of utter rapture and trust her gaze held when I plunged this sword into her heart, before the muscles fell slack and the blood wetted those finest silks.

    "If anything, I would call me evil for what I inadvertently made you. Look at yourself. Yet months ago you were a boy on the cusp of manhood, and now you rival a god in power. You've killed thousands, ruined the lives of millions more, and with my death you will have made every conquest the Domini have made irrelevant. Pointless. The vision of a united world, a New Heaven, will have been undone by a man drunk on love and addicted to primordial magic.

    "So walk away, if you wish, and let me rebuild if you want to honor the dead and your bride.

Minor inconveniences such as the absence of air or ground, for example, are disregarded at this level. Took me 6 months, from my player's side for the most part, to prepare this move

    "I won't bore you with recounting how many you've killed to be here, that would be pointless. You don't care, after all, you never have. Of course that's hardly your fault, you're a sociopath. When we finally caught and imprisoned you for crimes against humanity, you accepted your punishment with mute acceptance. I probably should have had you executed, but no. I displayed leniency and granted you the opportunity to change. I afforded you the best psychiatric treatment transhumanity could even consider.

    Of course, none of that ever worked on you. Why, I even saw on the video recording when you threw that poor girl out of the airlock for pretending to be a doctor, just so she could meet you. For all the horrors you've caused, you are an enigma, my friend. Of course I couldn't tell you whether she loved you or was simply curious, she was a patient, nowhere near as damaged as you are but.. still.

    Cries of dying mean echoed across the battlefield, occasionally punctuated by the wet sound of steel sliding through flesh. Enormous figures moved ponderously across the battlefield, arms dipping and waving in a grotesque pattern when they arrived at their still-breathing prey.

    A man wearing the tattered remnants of an officer's regalia screams in pain as he's picked up by the shreds of his ruined forearm, he continues to scream as he is dismembered. The figure pauses for a moment as it clamps down on the fallen soldier's still-beating heart and places it into some dark recess on its person.

    I shifted nervously, having only heard rumors of the Valkyries. Only a dying men remained on the field, a group of them together around a blasted-out stockade. Of the original squad, only three of them remained whole. I felt a vibration in my pocket, and slowly slid the delicate device out of its sheath. Its metal shone dully in the cloudy red sky, the screen barely visible through the layer of scratches and cuts criss-crossing its face. I fiddled with it for a moment, and then a crashing orchestra sounded in my ears. They figures would notice the tinny sound, and begin making their way towards me slowly.

    I wait until they are close before I flip the switch. The fire consumes utterly consumes all of them.

    From the safety of their battlements, the last few survivors see a smiling man with a gaping wound on the side of his head waving at them. One of them thinks they can vaguely hear the opening bars of “Ride of the Valkyries” before the man explodes in a flaming inferno. The blast completely incinerates the group of medics coming to examine the man.

I had done nothing to earn such a fate so ever since I have known that the world made NO sense and have acted accordingly.

    I have a peculiar fear of crows, so I keep them by me. I watch them with a real eye and a steel eye. I am afraid of them but am their master. I am the MASTER of FEAR!"

    In a darkly shrouded room with horrors lined upon all the walls in cages.

    "Do you know what the true nature of the world is? What the final fate of all men must be? Consider the sand... Each granule is but a tiny insignificant fragment of the larger whole. It has no meaning in and of itself, but in great numbers they can make a desert that not even the most powerful of men can tame. This is the nature of the world. We each struggle to rise and inevitably fall, oblivious to how our plight matters so little in the grander scheme. We are nothing but a grain of sand, tossed to the winds of fate.

    But I have seen the bigger picture. I have been to the outer realm and looked upon the face of existence. I have conversed with those who would sculpt this unconquerable desert, little by little with careful intrusions. To the untrained eye the sands continue their movements in random fashion, but the shape is slowly starting to take form. And that shape will be a dynasty that will never fall. And I shall reign over it."

    In a desert ruin, crumbling and ancient, with no name. A sandstorm whips about but does not enter the ruins, stopped by some supernatural force.

    "So you got this far? I suppose congratulations are in order for lasting this long. You dreamers are a curious breed...but then again, my world wouldn't exist if you weren't. Put the sword down, kid. I'm not one of YOUR nightmares, something you can just wish away by confronting what you're afraid of. I'm a point of view on one of the Big Ideas, and in that sense I'm much more real than you ever will be. Do you still think you can kill me, KID? I am corruption incarnate. You can't kill that. Even if you beat me, that's just a point of view. There'll be another one you guys cooked up along in less than a year, and we can start this all over again.

    But you know, I don't think either of us cares that much about the future. Silly me for bringing it up. Right now you wanna know what I'm after so you can put a stop to it. Well, pay attention, kiddo; I WANT EVERYTHING. That beautiful infinity of dreams you see out there? All the stories that will ever be told? They'll all be mine, or they all have to be destroyed. If you think this can be stopped, than go ahead and stop it. There's nothing else to this.

    ...Here I come, kid."

    >Actual BBEG speech

    >Up until now he has been posing as an ally.

    "Gentlemen, well done." He rises from the throne, stepping toward us. "Let me see them..." Taking the powder in his hand he spins it with a finger. "It's magnificent. I'm sorry to tell you, but I'm afraid I haven't been entirely truthful with you. Yes, I needed you four, and yes I needed this reagent-- but not for a simple potion. Surely you knew it's potency. And now..." He removes him helmet revealing a severely burned face. "You come to me, with swords sheathed and knees bowed. I offer you this chance; Join me, and live like kings! This reagent will give us immortality, all I need is your cooperation. This kingdom will fall with your help, and the arrogant king will be replaced, with a new and terrible king-- Magnificent in his reign, and he will be as terrible as the dawn..." A hand extended, he offers a hand to the adventurers.

    >They denied

    "Ah yes... Now inevitably you will stand, swords raised against me. So come adventurers, come and do what so many have tried before you... and fall like the rest of them..."

    Monologue: "Heroes only live long enough to become the monsters they fought themselves. I was once but a lowly prince, so far from the throne I was royal only in name. But I had something that the divine right of my father and brother cannot have been given. Ambition. I thought my kingdom could do better, its people could do better, its armies could do better. That's right, and now I see an odd collection of misfits before me. Perhaps I have destroyed your home, your people, maybe everything you cherished, but I see my people greater for it and I have no regrets. So come, strike me down, my Kingdom will only falter into ruin. Its people will suffer and the barbarians and kings of the land will destroy its armies. You can never have back what I have taken from you, and your satisfaction will wane with time. So come, I will crush you beneath my boot, and the weight of my people, my nation, and my crown upon my back is something together you cannot lift."

    "Your stance is wrong, it leaves you unbalanced. Your are is wide open. You know I almost envy you. You showed such potential, such prowess. I could have taken you under my wing, but you chose an unlawful path. My heart weeps for you. I'm afraid I cannot help you anymore. If this is what must be done, then it must be done. C'est la vie...

    "No sister! Madness is the ritual of a priest who prays every night to gods who do not heed his words. For though he applies himself to the same task again and again, the results do not change. I walk the path of Truth, that by the revelations of Secrets I might expose the great lie that the Five have taught this world.

    The servants of my lord will cleanse the land of unbelievers. Fear not my sister, those who repent and turn from their sins will be spared, for the mercies of my lord are without end!

    This is the path I have chosen. If you would stop me, then you must kill me.”

    As the characters reach the heart of the Shatter, misshapen and mutated, they look at each other with grim determination. "This is it.", they say, "We don't get another chance." They ready their weapons to attack this thing, this obelisk of flesh, this mortally wounded madness given form, falling from the Far Realm through the Multiverse. Bits and pieces of Far Realm got stuck to it, violating any reality it passed through. The thing cannot speak. But as they cause it pain, it screams and those screams are heard through time, causing early births in the characters' mothers and insanity in the societies of the far future.

    The Shatter is a moving zone of warped reality, breeding strange creatures roaming the countryside and strange landscapes infecting nearby areas. It's heart was a quiet little village, known for trading high quality grain with Waterdeep. it was the place when the falling thing broke a hole into this prime material plane. Far Realm's influence is so strong here that all that remains are islands made of broken remains of the village and its inhabitants floating over the amoebic sea. When the characters cause enough damage to the fleshy monolith that is the current form of the fallen thing, it will forcibly gate itself into some other plane, continuing its fall and taking the maddening influence with it. But what became twisted will remain twisted and the area where the village was will remain shunned for centuries. The characters will soon die too, as they succumb to their mutations.

    The only soundtrack to this fight is radio and TV static.

    "I thought you'd be coming, sooner or later. Anything to say, before this world is born anew?"

    Following the impassioned speech of the hero...

    "You know, I've never thought of it that way. Well, this is troubling. Never before has anything even made CONSIDER that I could possibly be wrong..."

    The BBEG pauses for a moment, apparently lost in thought.

    "I can't say I like that feeling."

    He slams his fist down on the end the world button, and the countdown begins.

    Soundtrack: Dark but subdued music with the screams of the souls of the damned (which power his machine) hovering behind the music.

    It's like every evil overlord from every videogame I've ever played is haunting the same body and can't figure out what the hell they're talking about.

    I like this speech best when I picture it delivered by a crazy hobo with a golfclub.

    Phase 1
    1. "I warned you not to come here fool. You shall fall to the powers the gods have granted me and I shall destroy all you hold dear."
    2. You've just fought your way through the bad guy's ship and have your gun trained on his back. He's standing facing an observation window looking at your ship, badely damaged already.
    3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hHXUyeVhbg

    Phase 2
    1."Even if I die here it won't change what's to come. You will all die no matter what perspires here."
    2. You have the villain down and hurt, but not out of the fight yet. Your ship seems to have made some progress in the ship-to-ship engagements.

    "Kill me. Go ahead, do it. It won't change what has happened, and it sure as hell won't change what will follow. Surely you can see the bigger picture here? These lives were but a fraction of those that would have been lost in the alternative. Had a better choice presented itself, I would have taken it. As it stands, what good would it do to add me to casualties? It won't bring any of them back... It won't bring her back, Daxx. Accept it. Lay down the blaster, and join me. Together, we can have our revenge on the true culprits. What do you say?


    ...Then I'm sorry it had to come to this."
