""By blood!" you scream, pushing forward with all of your strength, "And Bone!"
The Warden buckles backward, its ruined legs finally giving out.
"In spirit and soul, let this ritual blade show: I am Totemist, Link Between Worlds." you spit, still staring directly into the whirling eye of the skull bound by your knife.
With a grinding sound, the world slows to a complete halt around you. You can hear the whirling cogs of Modi Magni's terrible metal appendage screaming behind you, and as you speak, you feel your voice mingle with tinges of his own.
"Now!" you scream, rearing back, skull in hand, "SUMBIT!"
Your hand crashes to the earth like a meteor, driving the knife through the jaw, through the skull, and deep in to the ground. A sudden explosion sweeps out from the point of impact, and you can see the bone all around the skull your knife has cut dissolving into a fine dust from the force of the shockwave. You see the color drain from the world around you, but deliberation is something that you are long past; your know your prize. You pick the top half of the skull, a perfect vertical crack running from between the eyes down through where the septum would be, and mark it with your knife.
As the world fast-forwards back to speed, you feel disoriented. It whips rapidly between your enhanced speed and the ordinary world before the rapid alternation becomes too much for you.
You hit the ground, knife and skull in one hand, spear int he other. You can feel your consciousness fading from you, even as footsteps rapidly approach from the distance.
You grin, allowing your eyes to drift closed. You think your master would be proud.
