Hate. There are no words to express the sheer totality of the hate you feel. You could encode every possible fibre and molecule in every level of existence and it would not amount to even one iota of the all-encompassing hate that forms your makeup. You hate and you rage and you spite. That is enough.And now you find yourself locked and bound, enclosed with seals that hiss and dig into your flesh, metal that screams at you as it scratches itself through muscle and sinew. Outside, you hear the scrabbling murmuring of the apes that locked you away. Creatures that aren't the Jailers, but still think themselves your better.It does nothing to diminish your Hate.Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=999+QuestThe room you are in is dark, lit only by runes of glowing thaumaturgy.

Eat whatever parts of him are still being held and not splattered across the wall.You don't even hesitate before reaching forward with a malformed limb to grab one of the four advancing apes, tearing into its flesh as you do, before swinging him down into his companions. One of them is immediately smashed into a wet pasts from the force of your blow, splattering against the walls and floor. Another tries to call up whatever pitiful magical power it wields, only for you to break it across the ground, twitching only slightly before you bring your makeshift club down on it again and again and again and again.And again. And again. And again.The last one remaining apparently musters their paltry courage, blasting you with a wall of raw concussive force that makes you shift slightly. Apparently its intent was to shove you agaisnt the wall and try to flatten you.Pathetic.You take your time breaking the last one. Your club was little more than broken meat at that point anyway, so you scarf it down before starting to tear into the last remaining parasite.Its screams are wonderful.When you are finished you are left in the hall, blood and viscera splattering the walls in color. Wondrous color, the one thing the primates have to their name.The hall they came from extends deeper into the structure, and you can hear more voices from that side.

Feeling them pop between your jaws with cold satisfaction.The last one, and the one who seemingly set up the distortion that sought to split you apart, falls to its knees. It stares at you, in some kind of silent acceptance of its end.Oh, that will not do.In a moment, you draw a claw against its skull, pressing into the flesh but not enough to completely destroy its skull.

Scrawled with runes and words that pulse with a very, *very* potent mystical power. And yet even that pales compared to what you can feel beyond the door itself.The ape, now completely drained, falls to the floor. Cast like a dead skin as its body and limbs sag hollow and empty to the stone ground. Feeling like there's little point in leaving so much of the parasitic dancing shadow to taint this place further, you devour much of the remains.

It seems the vermin have gathered as many as they could to try and make their stand. You probably have mere minutes before they're on you and ready for the slaughter.Shifting your awareness farther back, you detect multiple 'cells' deeper into this complex of twisting caves, pathways and tunnels. Many of them thrum with old magic, power deeper and older than what those apes would no doubt claim. And you can feel a number of wills sequestered away there, patient and deep.You almost laugh to yourself. Oh, how much fun it will be to unleash them upon the primates.In your musings of inflicting pain and horror beyond their wildest imaginings upon the worthless parasites, you feel...something. Something tickles across your senses deeper into the complex, *far* deeper. Something distant, yet approaching towards your location.Something powerful. It practically bursts with thaumaturgy. Just what have these apes done now?You move your gaze away from the mystically potent thing steadily approaching, and focus forwards, on something arguably no less potent if not greater.You almost don't comprehend what you're looking at, due to how bound it is. The bindings on it are so immense and complex you're almost certain the shadows didn't do it. Behind the wards, something deep and complex twists and turns and writhes.

The King slowly advances, offering no words or boasts as it does so. It simply moves and the insects are crushed beneath it like so much mud.You grin to yourself, even as you place yourself in front of it and tear into an oncoming spell, which detonates into a plethora of colors that spiral and wrap around you.A word in an unfathomable tongue sets them ablaze with black flames as they spring from you and wrap around the nearest mystic, the life and magic-draining flames quickly reducing them to screaming ash that soon disintegrates.More quickly trickle in down from the hall, or barrel out of sudden spontaneous ripples in reality, spells and curses already on their lips.What shall you do?>Adapt/Counter/Hate (-5 Hate).>Disrupt/Counter/Dismantle.>Roar/Bend/Wound/Destroy.Hate: 62%Something is approaching

The energy ricochets off from your mass and the opposing force and impacts their prisons, shattering their imprisoning wards in an instant. Within moments, a massive breach starts and ancient things begin pouring out from their terrible cages to inflict retribution on their captors.Another flash, and you see something beneath this complex shift and stir, vast and formless and worming, as the magic from your fight and resultant backlash reaches out. It awakens.Finally, you feel yourself, mind and all start to plummet. You crash into the earth, hard and your body vaguely aches. But looking around you, you slowly come to realize something.You're outside. No longer trapped in the awful complex of the apes.Looking around, you notice a mountain in the distance from which you feel string strings of magic leaking out.

The mage tries to scream, but his tongue is also gone.You leer over him, body a writhing mass of Hate ready to snap down and-"Hey there."There is a figure before you, a female standing tall and impassive. She looks like one of the shadows, but there's something...*More* to her.>Query/Inquire/Determine.>Ignore/Continue/Finish.Hate: 1%
>>4437191>Ignore/Continue/FinishEating.That's all you say before you go back to the mage, who writes underneath you, before you crush his head between your shadowed jaws."Ouch. Tough crowd. But I guess I can't interrupt a good meal."The female waits until you finish your feasting, which only takes a couple minutes. By the time you are done, your form has returned to its standard shape and you feel unreasonably drained. You look up, and you notice that the female has not moved since, simply stating down at you.Of course, that's what you would say, if she had any visible eyes at all. Instead, all you see are dark voids filled with falling stars. She smiles."Nice to meet you. I'm Juva Oregon, and I'm hoping we can be good business partners."Juva Oregon. The One Who Gazes Through Falling Stars.Where is the King?"Oh him?" Juva waves, tilting her head only slightly. " We got him out of there quickly, once you set the place to blow. Seriously, you really did a number on their pylon back there. I don't think they're ever recovering this one."'We'? You shake your head, deciding to focus on something else.What do you want?Her smile widens, and in that moment you actually *look* at her. Her skin is too perfect, the clothing she wears a dark suit, too immaculate and her expressions too composed. Around her neck, a strange piece of jewelry hums and writhes. Like a worm."I'm glad you asked! See, I'm not here for pleasure, despite what you may think. No, I'm here to offer you membership, 682."Membership?"This world is wrong. All of it, everywhere. We both know this. And so there are many who want to rectify that. We've come together to finally bring an end to the wrongness, but we're still pretty small. So that's why we wanted you and the King."She turns to the remains of the ape you consumed."We also wouldn't have minded having that mage for tests-their magic is potent you see-But c'est la vie."Turning back to you, her face becomes...Not emotionless, but there's something else there. Something alien."Whilst I won't force you into it 682, you're free to go if you want, but we could really use your help with this."What do you say?>Accept/Take up the offer/Explore.>Refuse/Deny the offer/Leave.Hate: 3%
>>4437240>accept/take up the offer/ExploreWe may feast our hate upon this world.
>>4437240>Accept/Take up the offer/Explore.
>>4437265>>4437305>Accept/Take up the offer/Explore.You decide after some consideration.The world shall drown in your Hate.Juva Oregon smiles, the expression almost splitting her porcelain face. It shares in your Hate with its own alien disgust for this world."Great! Let's hurry up then, Since we don't want to keep them waiting. Word on the grapevine is that Lexiarchos Caducine went out with some others to assault those nosy Overseers, and it would be good to get some ground now with the rest of the Host distracted."'Overseers'? Does she mean-You have no time to voice your confusion before Juva snaps her fingers and the world breaks away into a green-colored expanse of flame and crystal. She grips one of your vestigial limbs with her own arm and starts dragging you away before you can question anything."Come on! Throne's this way."You walk for what seems like several eternities, past endlessly spiralling crystalline towers, lit by the backdrop of dying stars that sicken with green flames. But before you know it, you have arrived and Juva lets you go. You stare dazzedly forward.Before you, sits a throne of dark green crystal situated before a massive 'wall' of darkly hewn stone. And standing in front of and beside it, numerous presences have gathered. You recognize some faintly (Sarkic? Daevite?), but others like the hulking furred brutes you catch base glimpses of amongst figures shaded in dark cowls, you do not.Juva skips forward to a group of five standing near the base of the throne, all of them dressed extravagantly and all possessing the same dark eyes as herself. To the opposite end, another group remains. Dark creatures, chitinous and with dark green eyes like the terrible flamesall around you. In their arms, they weave and unweave atomic bonds. Then you feel it. A monumental presence. One that causes all of the accumulated forces to bow. Even Juva and her bleak eyed contemporaries and the green-eyed monsters bow as the figure on the throne casts thier attention down.Down, down, down.It lands on you. A trinity of eyes like burning emerald suns piercing into you. And a whispering voice, like conspiracy and forbidden secrets enters your mind, enters all minds."So we welcome a new acolyte. A new follower of the Coming End."Behind the throne-bearer, you see the dark wall shift, writhing as though it were a thing with will and purpose."A new vessel for that which lies outside all."Endless tendrils stretching out beyond infinity. All to highlight a faceless mask of cold void and end."Welcome, brother Leviathan."As one, they see you."Welcome to the Church of the Black Thorn."-Leviathan Quest End-
