The wind is blowing fiercly along the coast of a beach whose name has been forgotten for nearly a millenia. The planet was in shambles. The sun was piercing hot when it was in the sky, the moon a bringer of cold and death for all who stayed outside. This was not the planet that the gods and put so much work and love into. And now... well, the elves were lucky to still be alive, along with the angels and demons. The humans and dwarves weren't so lucky, and it's considered a rarity to find their remains.

The wind was unrelenting on the ocean, and the ocean was just as determined to keep coming. It's surprising that the beach is still there, sand so perfect, with no rocks or debris anywhere in sight. And Raniel Icesage appeared like a ghost cast into shape by the wind. His once beautiful face was haggard and stricken with grief. This wasn't what anyone had in mind. Raniel would have perferred that all existence as we know it would be demolished before this atrocity happened.

Did Skar even know what was going on? Was he paying attention? Why did he let them all die? Well, gods can only die as much as being forced into a mortal body. But Phasmaal, Valroim, Aeris, heavens above even Lenwe. All forced into a mortal existence. By him. That venemous snake that exists only in whispers. The god who sole purpose was to upset the balance in the world. Vuurin. The very name brought a look of disgust to Raniel's face.

What the Snowy Deity once thought of as a mere annoyance turned into an obsession. He tracked them all down, which was rather hard because none of the former gods remembered who they truly were. But he was always too late. The locals always told him the same story, they were killed in a "freak fire." He thought of Lenwe and his cockiness and single tear rolled down his cheek, only to be frozen into an ice bead before it reached the edge of his mouth.

And now he was here, on the beach. Behind him laid Vuurin's "holy" temple. And Raniel wanted revenge. He drew his Sword of Snow, his trusty blade that looked as if it would break a mortal mans' arms if he tried to wield it. Raniel walked through the wind, and the wind parted and created a small path for him to walk through. The elements were with him. All of them, other than fire and the other evil deities elements. Skar only knows what happened to them. Raniel wasn't too sure if Vuurin realized what he did by killing the others. Maybe he did, and he killed off his comrades so he could be even more powerful.

Did Vuurin think that he would just fade away and let him destroy this world that he looked upon lovingly every single day? Not likely. Raniel reached the temple's open archway and walked in, feeling a chill go down his spine that had nothing to do with the wind. The priests of the templeran from the sight of him. Raniel had no mercy left in him, Vuurin saw to that. And with his snowy-white blade a dozen elves robed in the garments of Vuurin fell. When someone fell at Raniel's hand, they stayed down.

Raniel walked up to the life-size statue of Vuurin sitting in a throne of flames. He licked his fingertips and gripped each arm of the throne with each hand. Ice spread up the statue. Soon the throne, along with Vuurin, was frozen solid. Raniel cracked his knuckles, formed a fist with his right hand and he punched the sneering likeness of Vuurin's face. The effect was immediate, the entire statue, besides the throne, shattered and every last pebble and every piece of debris fell off the icy throne, leaving it clean.

Raniel took a seat at his new throne and whispered so that only a deities ears could hear, "I have come for you."

They were dead. All of them. Finally, he had killed them... Except... Except that last one, Raniel Icesage. He had eluded him thus far... but what did it matter? Few could do anything now to him. He wondered if even Skar could destroy him now... Yet was that not a foolish question? Skar had said they were his children, yes, and if one is capable of making a god, he should be the one able to destroy one -- without a doubt. Yet where was he, this maker of gods? This God of Gods, the one who was meant to lead them all. Where was he? He sat somewhere, perhaps dimensions away, idling his time his son destroyed his most favored of creations. While his son destroyed his other children. How could he stand back and watch?

His original intent in destroying the gods had been to draw Skar out -- for Skar rarely appeared lest to end their fighting. But it did not work, and once he discovered that it was indeed possible to kill his brethren... by something so simple as forcing them into mortality and then ending their mortal lives... And after he did indeed kill his first -- his brother, ironically, the God of Death, Morferi Deathhand -- he could not stop. The power if gave him, of absorbing another god's power... It was... Intoxicating. It had an almost possessive quality, making him lust for more, for the blood of the other gods. And one by one, he murdered them. It became easy eventually... to destroy another... to steal away their immortality and then their power...

He started with his fellow Gods of Evil, those who were said to expect attack from their allies just as much as their enemies. Yet they didn't. When it came down to the facts, there had been a strange sort of trust between the Gods of Darkness. None expected such betrayal as that which he brought... None expected death... Least of all from him. His fiery temper and dark demeanour forced wariness upon any who saw him, yet nothing could have warned them of his attacks. And one by one, as he defeated them, he gained strength... And he knew he had strength enough to destroy his true enemies.

And eventually, the Gods of Neutrality, and then the Gods of Good, fell to his increasing powers. Yet Raniel remained, his last chance to bring Skar to his rage... To his lust for power and blood. His need of Skar's wisdom had escalated into a need for Skar's power. A need to destroy him as he had destroyed the others. And a twisted hope that destroying the God of Creation would destroy Creation. Would destroy the universe. Would destroy him.

It was not a need for destruction of those things around him that he required. It was his own destruction. He had found in this tortured time that he could only destroy... No, he could not bear to think of it. He need merely destroy Raniel and draw Skar out. He need only wait for Raniel to use his powers, and he would be able to detect him...

And then there it was, a spike in the energy forces of the world. It was small, yet he could tell it was the power of a god. Such signatures were always slightly different -- still made of the same energy, yet in the background, there was something that hinted at amazing power. Power that could not be wielded by a mortal...

In an instants, he had moved through the world to the place where the energy had come from. A temple of his, it seemed, though he cared little for those within. His followers meant nothing. No living thing meant anything anymore. All would be destroyed eventually, due to the instabilities in the atmosphere and fabric of the universe his battles with the gods had created. But Raniel, he had to take care of him himself.

The temple was a relatively curveless building. From the entrance, he could see Raniel sitting upon the throne where a statue had once sat, about two hundred yards away. Perhaps he could end this here...

Raising up his hands, a dark mist seemed to flow out, coiling around two pillars on either side of the entrance. He tightened his hands around an invisible object, shaped like a cylinder, and then lifted them up. The pillars wrenched themselves from the rest of the ability, moving in the same motion as his hands. He threw the invisible objects forward, like a javelin, and a moment later, the two pillars were sent flying at amazing speeds towards Raniel.

Where can he be... I doubt the death of his statue or his followers mattered to him but surely he must be looking for him... Raniel, so deep in thought, didn't notice Vuurin until he felt a large spike of energy in the balance, or lack thereof, of power that existed around Arevin. He raised his head in time to see two pillars flying towards him, hell, he thought that if given the space, they could break the sound barrier.

Raniel made a sweeping motion with his hand, and the pillars were flung into the side of the temple, like a mouse flung against the wall by a hungry cat. Had he always been able to do that? That was porbably what Aeris did every single day of his doomed existence. So it was true...

Not wanting to waste what little time he had, Raniel concentrated... and yes! There it was! Two large spikes of earth emerged from out side the temple and were flung at the entrance where he presumed Vuurin was hiding.

I must be unrelenting like the evil before me. While I cannot fight fire with fire, I think I can think of something to give him a bruise... Raniel conjured up thousands of water spikes from the liquid in the air, he electrified them with his new elemental powers, and he turned them into ice spikes. He flung them all at the entrance.

Raniel jumped. High. His head crashed through the marble ceiling, not even giving him a headache. He manipulated the air so that he literally flung himself at the beach in front of the temple. He landed on his feet, right when the tide was coming up.

He drew his blade, completely forgetting that he sheathed it to freeze the statue, and ran towards the temple entrance, using air to lift him off the ground and rocket him forward.
