TBCSS: S03E08 – In The End

Sendor has been defeated, but our heroes are not out of danger yet. The dark magic evoked by the Black Crystal Sword is still venting its destructive charge on the castle which is falling apart. The thick and voracious clouds are still looming on the towers and getting lower. Violent, mysterious purple bolts of lightning wrap the manor like electric shocks, turning each stone of its walls into raw rocks. Frequent earthquakes shock the floors and create large crevasses, the stairs collapse, and the windows explode in a myriad of sharp splinters.
The kings must find a way out and escape quickly.

Daltor leads the way, urges his companions to hurry up and warns them of the dangers of the route. Rahed and Alron drag the bodies of Sendor and Surod, so that they can receive a proper burial and not be trapped in the castle at the mercy of black magic. For Shena the escape is excruciating: she is still suffering from her wounds and from the loss of the last hope she had of recovering her lost love.

Once out of the manor, the heroes realize that the island itself and the sea are also agitated by the power of the sword. Sharp thorns have appeared on the plants, their branches grow rapidly creating tangles that make all the paths disappear. Reaching the pier is very difficult.
Rahed and Alron are exhausted and can no longer transport the fallen. Daltor opens a passage with the Silver Sword and is finally able to spot the sea: the current is very strong and huge tidal waves rise. In the hope that the raft is still safely docked at the pier, the king of the West takes both the bodies on his back, takes Shena by the hand and crosses the narrow passage he created before it closes.

Arriving at the boat the heroes breathe a sigh of relief. Of course, a stormy crossing awaits them, but the worst is now behind them. The goddess of war is on their side and they know that once they reach the shore they will finally be safe. Good always wins, in the end.

8.IN THE END

[Daltor]

Move it guys, let’s get out of this place,
everything is falling down.
Turn around, we cannot go this way
‘cause the last flight of stairs has collapsed.
This doomed castle is changing its face.
see, the walls turned into rocks!
and the floor so uneven and thick
waits for us to stumble down its clefts.

…hurry my friends there’s no time to hesitate…

Follow me on this meandering path,
put the corpses on my back.
Careful now, we all better crouch down
or these tangled branches will strike us.
There’s the sea and the stream looks so strong,
hope it didn’t steal our raft.
Come on Shena, I know it is hard,
but we have to get soon to the pier.

…hurry my friends there’s no time to hesitate…

[The group]

Tribute we pay to the goddess of war
who stands by the side of those in the right,
calming their fears with the feeling that good
always wins
in the end

These two bodies need a proper burial that’s for sure,
we’ll give them a due funeral and then return to our realms.

Tribute we pay to the goddess of war
who stands by the side of those in the right,
calming their fears with the feeling that good
always wins in the end.

Tribute we pay to the goddess of war
Who stands by the side of those in the right,
calming their fears with the feeling that good
always wins
in the end!
