Win to Nil Explained [2020] - Full guide to this market

Half-bear, half-owl, all-murder. The ferocious Owlbear might look cute, but its only interest in you is how tasty you are - Lore & History

If we had to rank the ugliest Dungeons & Dragons monsters, the Owlbear is definitely near the top along with the otyugh and the AD&D orcs. The Owlbear was created by Gary Gygax who was looking for new monsters for his players to fight. He found this kaiju monster toy in a small shop that labeled it as a ‘prehistoric animal’ and, along with other great monsters like the rust monster and the bulette, inducted it into the game. While the Owlbear was originally modeled by a toy company in China, it’s growth and development in Dungeons & Dragons can be credited to Gary Gygax and all the designers after him.
If you find yourself curious as to what the original toy Gygax designed the Owlbear off of, luckily Tony Diterlizzi, the awesome artist who did a lot of work for Planescape and the 2nd edition Monstrous Manual, shared it on his blog as well as a few others that Gygax had created. It’s fascinating to see these old chinasaurs and makes you want to run to a dollar store and see what horrifying ‘dinosaurs’ you can find to throw at your own party.

The Owlbear, or as it was actually introduced Owl Bear, was featured in the supplement, Greyhawk (1975). The story behind its creation was that Gygax used a plastic toy from the Godzilla movies created by the company in Hong Kong. These toys were the inspiration behind a few of the early monsters Gygax used in his early games. Tim Kask, one of the first playtesters who later became the editor for Dragon magazine tells the story as follows:
There once was an unknown company in Hong Kong that made a bag of weird animal-things that were then sold in what once were called dime stores or variety stores for like $.99. I know of four other very early monsters based on them. Gary and I talked about how hard it was to find monster figures, and how one day he came upon this bag of weird beasts…He nearly ran home, eager as a kid to get home and open his baseball cards.
Tim Kask, Forums on Dragonsfoot.org
Kask goes on to say that the figures were the inspiration for the rust monster, purple worm, carrion crawler, umber hulk, and, of course, the Owlbear. Looking at a picture of this odd yellow-colored toy, we aren’t sure how he thought the creature looks like a combination of a bear and an owl. It seems more like a twisted version of Big Bird from Sesame Street if Big Bird was a flesh-eating, homicidal maniac.
The creature that Gygax created is described as having a ‘horrid visage and disposition’ but we suppose if people kept calling us horrid looking, we’d be angsty too. Their bodies are furry with thick skin, and its head has feathers covering most of that area. Our poor, genetically confused creature is one nasty customer, as it had multiple dangerous attacks. The Owlbear was able to attack with its giant beak, though calling the thing on its face a beak doesn’t really do it justice as it is a massive curved protrusion. While the attack is actually listed as a bite, we’re sure its not the Owlbear’s teeth that cause the damage. We’re convinced it’s the beak that the creature tries to impale you upon that does most of the damage.
Next up for our horrifying genetic mistake is that it gets a bit goofy with its claw attacks. Instead of trying to open your head with its can-opener beak, the Owlbear can make two claw attacks. If the DM rolls an 18+ on the attack, the Owlbear gets to hug you. Now, this isn’t a nice gentle squeeze from grandma, but a hug from a creature that is 8 feet tall and weighs around 1,500 pounds. You’ll take 2-16 points of damage and settle for a handshake next time.

The Owlbear is introduced in the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set (1971) followed by the Basic Sets from 1981 and 1983. For such a confusing and strange creature, the description is incredibly brief and a bit… strange. We understand why the Owlbear would live in the deep dark forest, but underground? Owls and bears live in the forest, not a dungeon. Described as a bear-like creature with an owl head, there is no picture in the book, leaving our imagination to conjure up all sorts of horrible visions, speaking of horrible… they are still described as 'horrid', which we are sure only makes the Owlbear angrier.
The Owlbear is described as being over 8 feet tall when it’s standing on its hind legs and weighs over 1,500 pounds, this doesn’t paint a very cuddly picture. They are also described as being foul-tempered and that they attack when encountered as they are always hungry. Now, what could you imagine a ferocious Owlbear likes to eat? Well, you probably guessed correctly and its meat, and guess what humanoids are made of… meat! So, the Owlbear is just one more monster in the long line of them that likes to eat your character. Tasty.
The Owlbear retains their painful hug, but now it only happens if they hit you with both claws instead of just getting a high roll on the attack. Add that to the potential of being hit three times and you could be having a very bad day very quickly. Their hit dice are nothing to scoff at either, as a White Dragon in this version only has 6 HD. They also have an AC of 5, which is surprisingly decent, especially for a creature that is unable to wear armor. So now we have a giant owl-headed bear with a good amount of hit points and decent armor that can hug you to death. Fun times.
The Owlbear later gets some time to shine as it shows up in Dungeons & Dragons Game set (1991), the Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia (1991), the Classic Dungeons & Dragons Game Set (1994), and the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Game Set (1999). Unfortunately, the creature’s stats and descriptions never see an update.

The Owlbear appears in the Monster Manual (1977) and this edition brings it just a bit more information to chew on. Before we dive into talking about this horrid beast, we have to talk about the picture that comes along with the description. The drawing is based on the toy that was the inspiration for the Owlbear, and it is incredibly spot on… in the worst way. Its body looks nothing like a bear and its head has no resemblance to that of an owl, and the last time we checked a bear doesn’t have a giant tail. We’re not sure why it’s arms and legs have less hair on them, but they are noticeably paler than the rest of the body. It has a hunchback and a strange gizzard-like neck. The head is… ridiculous is the only appropriate word for it, it looks like it’s wearing a strange looking hat made of what we can only assume is feathers. The face is less of a face and more of one giant beak with tiny little teeth and one narrow eye. Thank goodness for the Owlbear that the only other picture on the page is that of the otyugh, who has a face, not even a mother could love.
The Owlbear gets a tiny bit of backstory, as it is surmised that the creation of this foul beast may have come about at the hands of a wizard, which is just code for 'Nobody wanted to think too hard about a bear and an owl getting it on'. This makes us feel slightly bad for the Owlbears, they are incredibly grumpy and hungry and they didn’t ask for this life!
Owlbears are described as a combination of brown fur and yellow feathers, it’s beak is a much lighter color, from yellow to ivory. They can still weigh up to 1,500 pounds, and it’s cruel eyes are usually red-rimmed, as if it had been crying. Maybe it saw itself in a mirror or the highly polished shield of a paladin perhaps, and finally saw what it looked like. We feel for it, that’s a daily occurrence for us.
The Owlbear can be found in deep dark forests or underground labyrinths. While exploring those lost ruins and labyrinths, you may also stumble across Mr. and Mrs. Owlbear in their lair, and there is a 1 in 4 chance that they’ll have a few little ones running around. There is also a chance that their young haven’t hatched yet and that there are up to 6 eggs just ready to be plundered by adventurers for a nice omelet. Since the Owlbear comes from an egg, we have to figure that the genetic experiments resulted in more owl DNA than just the strange owl head and feathers. Now, we talked about using the Owlbear eggs to make an omelet, but before you get that fire going, let’s talk about gold. Owlbear eggs are worth up to 2,000 gold while the young go for 5,000 gold. Of course, the Owlbears aren’t just going to let you take their young, Owlbears fight to the death, no matter the stakes plus there is a 50% chance that the Owlbear ‘cubs’ you are hoping for will be full-grown and fight side by side with mom and dad.
The rest of the Owlbear is largely unchanged from the previous editions and they are still known for giving their bear hugs, though it states that anywho is locked in this hug takes the damage at the start of the Owlbear’s turn every round… which is gotta be horrifying for those trying to save their party member. All they see is the fighter get a massive hug, and then they start hearing screams as bones begin breaking and the gleaming owl beak of the Owlbear begins pecking and biting into the fighter’s head, trying to break it open like a kinder egg… We wonder what the surprise will be! Probably nothing, we all know that fighters aren’t the brightest.

The Owlbear appears first in the Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989) and is later added to the Monstrous Manual (1993). The picture in the Monstrous Compendium gets slightly better and features just the top half of the ferocious beast and you can make our more details! Wicked claws, horrifying owl beak and… teeth… lots of teeth. It’s like staring into the mouth of a penguin and being horrified by what you see. In the Monstrous Manual, we get a full-color drawing of the beast by Tony DiTerlizzi and it is as whimsical as anything else he has drawn! Brown fur with owl feathers, a tongue sticking out, and wicked claws… we still don’t want to get lost in a forest with one of them, but at least it won’t be as embarrassing to die by this beast than before. No one wants to die to a homicidal Big Bird.
Their description and background remain the same except for a few humorous additions, and it's actually kind of sad. Typically in 2e, we get a full page of information about the exotic life of the creatures and how they reside in their ecosystem with words crammed into every part of the page… the poor Owlbear has plenty of room leftover on the page and has a glaring block of white space that could be used to give it a more interesting backstory and ecology! Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Instead, our Owlbear is still created by a mad wizard, it is implied that upon creation, the Owlbear killed the wizard. We hope it was a slow and painful death, Mother Nature should not be screwed with in such a horrifying way. The Owlbear also gets its own language, if you consider screeching at various pitches a language. We can only imagine the terror of being trapped in a labyrinth and hearing that noise echoing throughout the maze.
How and where they live also remains mostly the same, and now they can also live in caves and hollow tree stumps. Caves we get, but hollow tree stumps? That had to be one big ass tree, especially if they expect there to be a pack of them. Speaking of packs, when an Owlbear couple decides to settle down and make a family, they claim up to two square miles as their own. Don’t trespass, as they are very touchy about visitors, and will try to kill you immediately. As we have mentioned before, the Owlbear will fight to the death. Now you can use that to your advantage, as their crazed fury blinds them to the dangers you can create for them. The text suggests that you lure them off a cliff or drop a bunch of boulders on them. It does go on to say, of course, that is only if you can find a cliff. Even with a low Intelligence, we’re pretty sure the Owlbear won’t do this, but if it does, you’d better hope you’re not being hugged when it happens.
We are given a bit of information in regards to the ecology of the Owlbear and the text describes a creature that lives with the results of two creatures being smashed together through magic. Living 20 years, they are warm-blooded animals, like a bear would be, but like an owl, their cubs are hatched from what must be really, really large eggs. They are carnivores and are only interested in anything tasty like rabbits, snakes, bears, and one must always assume humanoids because we are incredibly delicious. Their sleep patterns are a lot like that of a teenager in that they don’t rise until noon and then hunt all afternoon and night until they tucker themselves out and go to sleep at midnight. They hate the cold and their bear tendencies shine through in the winter when they hibernate, though there are rumors of arctic Owlbears… so watch out. Lastly, they can’t be domesticated, and why anyone would ever want one is beyond us. If you need a hug that badly, go visit your mom. They are captured and sold in markets throughout the world, where they command a high price and many a powerful person has purchased an Owlbear to serve as an unwitting protector of their owner’s property.
In 1995, we are given an interesting article in Dragon #214 (February), the Ecology of the Owlbear by Johnathan Richards. This article tells the story of how two adventurers almost got themselves killed by Owlbears. The two adventurers, a grizzled old veteran Griff, and a young apprentice Colin who has no business going out in the wilderness. They track down an Owlbear and use honey to distract the poor creature and end up killing it with a poisoned crossbow bolt. Of course, you’d assume that Griff, who basically brags to know everything about Owlbears would know that some Owlbears mate and have babies. While Griff is skinning the first Owlbear, the second Owlbear comes out of a cave and gets a little upset, and we might say unreasonable, and begins attacking the two. Somehow, they survive the encounter and find a few Owlbear eggs to sell in the market.
Now, this piece in the article is especially interesting because they provide ways of augmenting the normal Owlbear and giving it even more owl and bear traits, this does make a stronger monster but does give it a lot more flavor to its mechanics. Owlbears, even after you killed them, still want to fight for several more rounds before it finally decides to die… We recommend distracting them with the one thing bears apparently can’t resist. Honey! Honey is one of the few things that an Owlbear loves to eat, the other things being you and anything else filled with delicious meat.
Owlbears, like bears, mark their territories by sharpening their claws on trees, though they can’t climb a tree… which seems a bit weird seeing as how bears can climb trees and owls can roost in them. Luckily for you though, you can hide in a tree and be safe from the horrid beast below you on the forest floor, unlucky for you because you are stuck in that tree. Owlbears are known for waiting days, angrily waiting for you to come down so it can show you just how pissed off it is. They are also known for being so strong as to knock fully matured trees down, so there’s that too.
This updated Owlbear also gains a few other characteristics of its owl half, like it can swivel its head a full 270 degrees and can quickly whip its head back and forth with ease. In the realm of the weird, the Owlbear has a third transparent eyelid that provides an extra layer of protection, as the young Colin finds out when he tries to blind the Owlbear by throwing dirt into its face. Just as the owl does, the Owlbear tears its food into chunks and doesn’t bother chewing as it gulps those chunks down. What it can’t digest gets turned into leftover pellets that it spits up as owl pellets.
At the end of the article, we are introduced to two new Owlbears, which are later reprinted in the Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Three (1996), The Artic Owlbear and the Flying Owlbear. As you can probably guess, one lives in the cold and snow, and the other can fly. The Arctic Owlbear has more hit dice than our regular Owlbear and is a snowy white color, giving it great camouflage as it waits in the snow, ready to pounce. Also, its a mix of a polar bear and a snow owl. The Flying Owlbear can fly, which is a very disturbing thought. As if dealing with a regular Owlbear isn’t bad enough, now it can rain down death from the sky and are incredibly stealthy and hard to notice until the wizard suddenly learns to fly and soars away to be eaten in the clouds.
The last Owlbear of 2nd edition is featured in Dungeon #63 (July 1997) and is part of an adventure called Hunt for the Heirophant by Chris Doyle. The Owlbear featured is a Dire Owlbear of immense size and strength, it has more hit points, deals more damage and is a ferocious brute who was placed in stasis because a wizard wanted to use it as a guard. The party must fight the Dire Owlbear and the wizard asks that they don’t kill it… which we are sure is going over well for the fighter caught in its hug and is currently being lobotomized by a bird beak.

The owlbear appears in the Monster Manual (2000/2003) and before we talk about the shockingly small amount of information our fine-feathered and furry-murder-beast received in this edition, we first have to discuss the Owlbear’s picture. It’s once again back to standing upright and its arms are these odd feather-covered appendages that look more like wings than arms. Its yellow-brownish color gives it a regal look which would be great if its facial expression wasn’t one that said it was going to rip your throat out. All in all, it looks like a person dressed up in a giant bird suit screaming because they can’t get out. Or maybe someone is playing a horrible prank on a bear and glued on some feathers and a beak, and the bear is upset… either way, probably best not to get too close, they look dangerous.
The short description provided leaves a lot to be desired, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to talk about. They are active during the day or night, and it largely depends on the available prey in the area, so now breakfast is no longer safe from them. Eggs and young Owlbears still fetch a handsome reward, and now you have the privilege of paying an exorbitant amount, 2,000 gp, to an Owlbear trainer if you want one of your very own… which, is probably the safest thing to do. If the Owlbear is going to murder someone, its better that its the trainer and not you… that way you can get your 2,000 gp back from the thoroughly shredded body. Finally, the term ‘hug’ is dropped, as the attack is now referred to as an improved grab ability and honestly… we kind of miss the idea of the Owlbear squeezing people to death like their a tube of toothpaste and it's trying to squeeze every drop out.
Fortunately for us, the Owlbear appears in many other places during this edition and even appears as an Owlbear Skeleton in the 3.5 Monster Manual! The creature provided is based on a template for creating skeletons, so while it doesn’t build on the lore… it does mean that just when you thought you were safe, clearing the nearby lands of Owlbear infestations, you now have the distinct possibility of having to fight one of these undead monsters. Life isn’t fair sometimes.
In the Forgotten Realms supplement Unapproachable East (2003), you can take your very own Owlbear feat called the Owlbear Berserker. Your barbarian lodge totem is an Owlbear and when you take this feat you get to make an unarmed attack, dealing 1d6 points of damage with a successful grapple check. We assume it's based on the owlbear’s hug ability since you probably don’t have a giant beak to peck with when the target is grappled.
After that comes a few other variant Owlbears, like the Flying Owlbear in the Dungeons #84 (January 2001) adventure The Dying of the Light, or the Ancient Owlbear in the Dungeon #107 (February 2004) adventure Mellorn Hospitality. The last type of Owlbear in this edition appears in the Bestiary of Kyrnn (2004, 2007) which has an Ankholian Undead Owlbear as one more creature to feed our nightmares. The Ankholian Undead is a template that you can apply to any monster you want and provides several additional undead abilities that provide a far more fearsome opponent than some sort of skeleton. An interesting fact about Ankholian undead creatures is that they get a breath weapon that gives them the ability to spew a 30-foot cone of green flame that doesn’t burn you, instead, it does slam you with cold damage and its usable once per minute. And just when you thought that that pack of Owlbear Skeletons would be the worst thing you had to face today…

The Owlbear appears in the Monster Manual (2008) and the first thing that we should mention is that they are now considered fey beasts… will get back to that. To keep up our tradition, let’s talk about the artwork. It looks good… suspiciously too good, which makes us wonder if some sort of Big Owlbear lobby is out there and bribed WotC to make a fearsome, scary, and accurate drawing of an Owlbear. Long claws, deadly beak, and a beautiful blending of feathers to fur… it took up till 4th edition to finally get some good artwork of the Owlbear and it was worth it.
Going back to the fey beast, the creature is no longer described as the creation of an insane wizard, but a predator from the Feywild. They live in the forest and in caves, hunt either during the day or night, mate, and reproduce. They somehow slipped over to the natural world and as far as we are concerned, the Feywild can have them back.
The claw/grab/crush attack, formally known as the hug attack remains, with the Owlbear grappling the target if it hits with both claw attacks and automatically bitting any target they grab on to. Owlbears also gain a new attack called the Stunning Screech, which allows them to screech so loud it will make your ears bleed and cause you to be stunned. It will then charge you down and begin attacking you with even more aggression and renew its tight squeeze to get at your meat flavored filling.
We are also introduced to the Winterclaw Owlbear, which is just a meaner, colder, and probably angrier Owlbear. While the Winterclaw loses its Stunning Screech, it gains a new cold attack known as Frost Wall. While this ability no longer stuns their prey, it instead sends out literal ice and immobilizes their target so that the Winterclaw can hang out a bit, talk about life and then begin squeezing you like a twinkie.
The lore goes on to describe how the inhabitants of the Feywild like to tame the Owlbears, using them to guard their territories. This is further expanded on in the Monster Vault Box Set (2010) which provides several new Owlbears to hug your party to death as well as a bit more information about the ecology of the Owlbear. They are gifted with the vision of the owl and the raw power of the bear. They just love to kill things and if they are in a prey-rich area, they will strew their territory with lots of dead bodies to attract scavengers. They will then sneak up on those pesky scavengers and eat them, displaying any leftovers to attract even more scavengers for it to lazily feed on.
Most describe the lairs of these Owlbears as horrendously smelly, and we are sure that the smell of rotting meat has to be bad… though some in the Feywild use this to their advantage and specifically set up their treetop communities over the lairs of these smelly Owlbears. The elves will have their beautiful cities guarded below them by the Owlbears, and hopefully, they have a constant strong wind to push away the overwhelming stench. This book also provides information on Young Owlbears, Trained Owlbears, and the Wind-Claw Owlbear who gets a new ability called Disembowel. Much like a massive hug, the Wind-Claw can attack you twice with its claws. If it hits on both attacks, it stuns you by disemboweling you… We are pretty confident that that would do a bit more than just stun us but probably kill us too.

The Owlbear is introduced in the Monster Manual (2014) and the picture of the Owlbear is well-drawn and looks like a bear with an owl face. We’ve got some questions for the artists though, the Owlbear has had fur that has been brown, yellow, light yellow, dark brown, light brown, and is described as having the body of a bear… So why the sudden change to light purple? It may be nitpicking, but the purple color is throwing us off, along with it just feeling a bit uncanny. Honestly, we prefer the 4e version of the Owlbear whereas this just feels a bit too abstract with its strange arm wings.
Luckily for us, the lore provided for 5e makes up for its odd artwork and the Owlbear, instead of getting one origin story, gets two. Our first story is that an insane wizard created the Owlbear, which makes for a good story but still has no basis in fact that anyone can find. There is still no name, and all we get is that the Owlbears probably killed their creator. Maybe the wizard’s name has been in front of us the whole time. Just like Frankenstein is actually the name of the doctor who created the monster, maybe Owlbear is the name of the wizard who created the monster! Just let that sink in, these creatures were created by the Archmage Owlbear and he created them in his image… err… name? Your welcome for fixing this bit of lore you never knew you needed.
Of course, their second origin story is from 4e and is that they are from the Feywild and somehow made the crossing over to the Material Plane. While this second story seems more plausible, how much do you trust Elves? Let us ask that question a different way, how badly do you want there to be an Archmage Owlbear? You know which story we prefer.
Focusing on the facts known about the Owlbear, it is still extremely mean and will attack anything or anyone on sight. They live in the deep dark forest or caves, and apparently, they are very bad housekeepers. Their lairs are made up of scattered bones, blood, and the remains of their victims. They live either by themselves or if they have fallen in love with the right Owlbear, you may encounter a happy family of our furry-feathered-murder-beasts. A lot of the lore is actually taken directly from 4e’s Monster Vault, though some of it is slightly rewritten, and we still have elves using them to guard the ground beneath the tree-cities. While we are sure that the nearby neighbors of the elf-cities would complain about their property values dropping, no one in their right mind ever says anything since there is an Owlbear!
The first of the two biggest changes to the Owlbear deals with how it attacks. While the claw and beak attack remain, there are no more hugs of any sort. Our incredibly friendly Owlbear no longer has any chance to grapple its target and squeeze it to death. Is this even the Owlbear anymore? That was its signature move and they decided to take it away! While the damage is relatively high for its challenge rating, it just isn’t that terrifying. This travesty has yet to be resolved and they have had 6 years to correct their error, so one has to imagine this was done on purpose. Shame on you WotC, shame on you.
The second change is kind of cool, although nothing will compensate for the loss of the hug attack. Building on the 4e Owlbear that could be tamed, 5e takes it one step further. An Owlbear can now be trained to do all sorts of ‘domesticated’ tasks. Hobgoblins use them as war beasts and certain giants keep them as pets. Out in the wild frontier, the inhabitants love themselves some Owlbear as they use them as guards, which isn’t exactly a new thing, but they also train them to be ridden. We are pretty sure riding into town on an Owlbear would make you the biggest badass the locals have ever seen. Of course, what is even more badass is that you could ride them in Owlbear races! The image of a dozen or so of these 1,500-pound creatures galloping around a dirt track in the middle of nowhere is both exhilarating and terrifying. Especially as a lot of the people bet on not just who wins but who gets eaten first by their vicious mount.
Unfortunately for the Owlbear, it has largely been used as part of a random encounter and rarely provides much to the story across every edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Even in 5e, it appears in several adventures as a random encounter like in The Lost Mine of Phandelver (2014), Princes of the Apocalypse (2015), and Storm King’s Thunder (2016).
If you’re a DM and have a burning desire to watch your players freak out at the sight of this horrid creature, throw one into your campaign. If you are a player and you see one of these horrifying creatures running towards you and screeching like an owl out of hell, well… hopefully, you are playing 5th edition and you don’t have to worry about that massive bear-hug that will pop you like a pimple.
On a side note, we have created something that no one asked for! Now YOU can create your very own genetic mistake and throw a surprise curve ball at your players!

the guardian part 4 :15-20 THE END. by fredrik granström

CHAPTER 16: Road to the capitol part 2
-Where have you been? Tobias asked after coming out of a teleportation hole.
-A place that does not exist.
-You are LATE the council will NOT be happy. And furthermore I heard Bruce is dead surely that’s not true? And what is this nonsense about a house that, does not exist? A place either exists or it does not.
-Sadly, he is Robert answered with a solemn tone of voice. And as far as the house goes, don’t even bother a stupid simpleton like you would never understand.
-Breaking the rules AND losing another slayer, your kind don’t grow on trees you know the council will be absolutely furious.
-Fuck the council! Robert cursed.
-E-excuse me? Tobias stuttered.
-Never mind… let me handle to council when we get there.
-And when WILL you be getting there?
-Asap. I am speaking with Tor via telepathic link as we speak, he is coming here with his electric tank and Tesla car.
-Telepathic? Tobias asked.
-Yes, a skill all guardians learn after taking the test to become a slayer, but you would not know about that you glorified postman now piss off!
-O-h okay-y Tobias stuttered and teleported away steaming mad.
Robert looked for his mirror shield and found it at the dead Gorgons corpse.
-I fucking hate gorgons Robert said if only we could kill the real Medusa then maybe we could get rid of them once and for all.
-I agree said Ivana I fucking hate snakes and this bitch got snakes for hair.
-This bitch needs a haircut said Robert and cut the snakes off, when thinking about it she needs a beheading the slayer cut her head off.
-Well she looks a lot better without that face! Ivana made the team burst out laughing.
-What are you going to use that ugly head for anyway? Nils asked.
-You will see was the only answer he got from the slayer.
The team waited for a few hours for Tor to come and get there.
The powerful electromancer from the capitol arrived in his electric powered tank it had machineguns and a big cannon on top following it was a auto driving Tesla a car fueled by electricity it had two M-60 machine guns mounted on it.
-Robert my old friend! You are in bad standing with the council, but you must know that already…
-Fuck them! Robert said.
The two slayers joined each other in laughter.
-Anyways so these must be the young guardians, but there is four and not three as I been told and they seem to be older than I been told to.
-Well you must grow up fast on the battlefield.
-I am betting that’s the only explanation you care to give.
-Sure, but on the upside these are all in appropriate age for taking the slayer test soon.
-Four new slayers that would be a blessing indeed! It would really increase our numbers in the capitol. And the hydromancer Paul to…
- I would not expect much from the water boy I left him at the school because it is not an important place so these more useful guardians should not waste their time there, they are more needed in the capitol. Paul seems to be to afraid to take the slayer test anyway.
-If you say so! Now young guardians let`s roll out. Tor said.
-Me and Nils will take the Tesla and the rest can join Tor in his tank.
Robert was driving the Tesla.
-Will you let me drive!? Nils asked excitedly.
-Ha-ha NEVER! Cars are real rare in the new world and even in the old world these cars where expensive as fuck and this one is tricked out with machine guns and autopilot to boot I will not let a non-slayer hand touch it period.
-Oh, you are no fun! Nils said.
-Well but I am alive and have been for ages and I intend you keep you alive to little friend.
-How old are you anyway?
-Never ask a slayer his true age.
Also how does turning seventeen feels? You are old enough to take the slayer test and you and Elina are both above fifteen now that makes you both legal to do you know what, but that’s none of my business.
-Damn right its none of your business!
-Well the guardian gene seems to be more common in families where one or both parents have it so it`s important to reproduce.
-Well that’s IS true, Nicklas his brother and his father all had it. But worry about your own reproducing and I will worry about mine.
-I am hearing what you are saying kiddo and I think I might be a father soon away.
-WTF!? Really? Who is the lucky bride?
-Well she is no bride, but you might consider her lucky and I will keep this secret as a surprise for later. Now I know for a fact that one of the members of the council is a demon I will need you to figure out which one.
-You don’t think its Tor do you?
-Maybe if it is he got the upper hand in that tank.
-You don’t think its Arne, Nicklas dad?
-Maybe and if it is be ready to kill him without hesitation.
They kept driving and eventually arrived at the capitol.
CHAPTER 17: THE CAPITOL
They entered the castle in the capitol it was surrounded by a great wall with mounted machine guns and mortars ready to fire grenades at any occult threat or of course Satanist`s some humans had chosen to fight for evil selfish and un-empathic people often did the dirty deeds of demons wishes, wishing themselves to be rewarded with demonic powers in return. Three thousand people lived inside these city walls making it by far the biggest city in the country of course it was said that in the old world this city had hold over one million people but that was before the demons invaded now there was far less then a million in the entire country. Nils walked looking around at the people seeing the approving and wanting looks of young girls, mostly blue eyed with blonde hair but also dark eyed beauties with dark hair to match and even a few gingers with freckled faces. They were eating him up with their eyes eyeing him from head to toe which granted him a most unapproving gaze and a shove from his girlfriend Elina.
-Don’t get any funny ideas! She told him off.
-I would never he assured and kissed his beloved.
The crowd erupted with cheers of joy the only thing better then two guardians were two guardians in
love because this meant more guardian babies in the future.
The girls looked all looked at Elina with jealousy in their eyes and the boys with wanting eyes.
Nils caught his girlfriend eyeing they boys all tall and of muscular build with six packs of abs and big strong arms all of them with their shirts of it was a sunny day after all. Most boys were blonde haired and blue eyed like Nils himself and a few had darker hair a few had red ginger hair and a few were even dark skinned. Nils pulled Elina`s arm
-Now you don’t get any ideas.
- I would never! She said and kissed her truelove.
The crowd started cheering again.
Ivana was wanting for attention and did not want to be outdone by Elina and she kissed Nicklas.
This really mad the crowd go wild the only thing better than ONE guardian couple were TWO things were really looking up. Nils could see the older women looking at Robert with dreams in their eyes but he seemed uninterested which was strange he was usually the player type. The team entered the castle once a King of the old world had lived here Nils knew but now it was the base of the Council the strongest slayers in the country.
-You are late dark slayer! I woman screamed Nils was in awe by her beauty she had a body to live fear but eyes you could die for, she was wearing high heels and a short white dress that exposed her long slim legs that just never quit. She had an hourglass body with a slim waist and big tits and big ass with more curves on her body than a motorway.
-Nice to meet you to Alicia I been missing you sweetheart. Robert said in return he could not take his eyes of the woman.
Nils was thinking Robert, in love? But with such a beautiful woman maybe it was not surprising, and she was a slayer to boot. Maybe she was even the woman that was wearing Roberts baby in her stomach? But she did not look pregnant.
-Don’t call me sweetheart dear. Alicia said to the dark slayer.
- And where is that dark armor of yours? I always thought you looked good in it, at least the helmet covered up that face of yours.
-Thanks for the compliments sweetheart but I am afraid I lost it in a fight with necromancer and a zombie dragon.
-A fucking zombie dragon!? You got to be kidding me.
-Actually, the slayer tells the truth. Elina intervened.
-And who is this young lady? A guardian I suppose.
-Yes, a guardian and an angel to boot. Robert answered.
-An angel!? A man wearing all red joined the conversation. It was David the pyromancer one of the most powerful slayers in the country and supposedly the world.
-Robert speaks the truth Tor the electro-mancer joined in on the conversation. Tobias joined the room via teleportation.
-So the dark slayer is finally here… Alicia the aero-mancer, Tor with electric powers, David with fire now we are only missing Arne the one with ice powers.
-My dad! Where is he? Nicklas asked.
-Oh, he was out closing a demon portal last I saw him.
-C-closing a demon portal!? The guardians were all surprised by this news.
- I did not know you could close them? Nils asked confused.
-Oh, but you can well you cannot but a powerful ice magic spell can close them so Arne can do the job and maybe his son can also learn the spell after he becomes a slayer.
-Yes, this is my hopes we cannot have kids standing around guarding these portals from hell all the time sooner or later they will fall to a demon.
Everyone In the room knew that Robert spoke the truth.
And then Arne joined the room with his familiar a huge polar bear wearing armor and with two miniguns mounted on him. Arne was looking old and tired he had a long grey beard and grey hair looking 90-100 years old.
-I closed the damned portal now lets discuss what we should do with Robert the rulebreaker.
CHAPTER 18: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
-Robert should immediately be stripped of his rank as number one slayer is anyone opposing this, Arne asked and was met with silence.
-Furthermore, he should be sent to the dungeons while we figure out what to do with him is anyone opposing this?
-I am! I sure as fuck am what are my crimes really? Robert screamed in anger.
-Well you broke the rules which released the demon lord Gargos on our lands and furthermore you got a fellow slayer, Bruce the shapeshifter killed.
-Oh, fuck the rules! Don’t you get it the demons set the rules and try to bend them all the time. I got you no less then four new guardians soon to be slayers all of them and all of them strong, one of them is even an angel for fucks sake! A fucking angel! Do you hear what I am saying?
-Quite frankly I think everyone can hear your screaming there is no need for that or your crude language show the council a little bit more respect.
-Fuck the council! Robert said in anger before realizing that was NOT the right thing to say.
-Show him to the dungeons at once since he is no longer number one I am, confiscate his weapons before locking him away this meeting is over.
The guardian team sat at the dinner table enjoying a meal fit for a king of course the guardians and slayers could eat all they wanted here as they could anywhere in the world. Nils felt a bit uneasy buy this looking around seeing jealous gazes from other kids and grownups. The kids still had hopes at least sometime around twelve to eighteen years of age there was always a chance that he guardian gene would kick in but once you were adult… if it was not meant to be it just was going to happen and they would have to seek out hard work of building walls or risking their lives on dangerous expeditions scavenging for supplies outside of the walls and then he knew the people inside of the walls were the lucky ones.
The less introspective boy Nicklas seemed completely unfazed but all of this and keep stuffing his face with one plate after another without a deeper thought in his mind. Elina was enjoying the food to chicken, pork, fish even potatoes and greens she was not a picky eater. Ivana was eating to either though she rather have her food alive so she could suck the blood out of it she was a vampire after all but she knew there would be time for such pleasures later she did not want to make a scene at the dinner table. A one armed boy stepped over to the guardians table.
-So these are our new protectors and overlords? He asked with a condensing voice filled to the brim with jealous.
-Sure, are and who are you a thief buy the looks of it? Nils did not care for the tone of the voice of the one-armed boy one bit.
-Stealing once off with your arm if you do it again off with your head, sex crimes of with your dick and for murder you will be hanged.
- So, he is a thief then are you not boy? You do have your dick left I presume? Ivana said and laughed.
-Shut up you vampire bitch! I was starving and stole some chicken what about it? They boy was steaming mad and grabbed the chicken off Ivana’s plate.
-You are not even eating it anyway. You fucking spoiled bitch! That really made Nicklas angry he rushed at the boy but boy was older and stronger and knocked Nicklas down with a powerful punch to the jaw.
-I had enough of this shit! Nils punched they boy with a boxing knockout punch like Mike Tyson used to do in the old world the boy fell back and his head hit the floor… dead.
-Fuck! Nils had forgotten about his new robot arm and accidently killed the boy with his punch.
-Take him to the dungeons! Arne the slayer said.
Nils and Robert were sitting in cells next to each other.
-Come on that’s bullshit he started it and did not mean to kill him it was an accident they will not hang you for that. The slayer informed his guardian friend.
-I sure hope so.
-When you get out don’t forget to take the scraps of my armor on the world’s highest mountain there is a dwarf master weaponsmith he will use it to craft the dark blade for you the most powerful sword in existence.
-If I ever get out of here I will.
Patricia entered the dungeon keep wearing a white dress with her shoulder straps strategically pulled down exposing her young smooth looking skin and the top of her big firm tits. She was holding a bottle of vodka in one hand and a Havana cigar in the other.
-Just the three things I needed, smoke, drink and the touch of a woman Robert said.
-Oh, we will be doing more than just touching each other but you young guardian you must go to your friends I put in the word for you and you are free. The guard opened Nils cell door he could not wait to get out of there and join his friends.
-Oh, thank you so much I owe my life to you, and have fun.
-Yes, you do and we will the female-slayer answered him.
Nils joined his friends at the hell gate a young woman stood ready it was Paulina, Paul`s twin sister also a hydromancer with long blonde hair and bright green eyes. She was holding a big sword that seemed to be made out of water. Today’s opponent appeard from the flaming circle a goat headed fire demon holding a devils fork a poor match for the water user. The demon swung at Paulina with the trident but she quickly parried it and with another quick strike separated the demons head from its body.
Late at night the guardians was sleeping Ivana and Nicklas in the same bed in one room and Nils and Elina together in their bed in another room. In the darkness a shape appeared he was sneaking slow and carefully to their bed with a knife in hand just when he was about to strike Nils suddenly woke up shooting and electric beam at him Tobias opened a portal and Nils charge disappeared to god knows where.
Elina was also awake now and cut the teleporters throat with a dagger she always kept under her pillow. So Tobias was the demon Elina said to Nils.
-N-no, Tobias spat blood from his mouth finding it difficult to talk as he lay dying in a pool of his own blood. But I am working for him.
-Why did he want you to kill me? Nils asked.
-Kill you? No, he wanted the school… it was the last words Tobias ever uttered in life. Nils looked at Elina in shock when he realized what they meant.
CHAPTER 19: THE SCHOOL
Paul was standing ready to guard everyday there was a new demon to slay which did not bother him much since they kept being fire types which was an easy match for him and his water-powers. He had created a shield and axe out of water, the demon appeared
in front of him it was a coyote burning with fire holding a sword and shield, he rushed and attacked it.
The demon launched a fireball at him but he easily guarded against it with his water-shield he tackled the demon and while it was laying on its back he began chopping it to pieces, legs, arms, chest and head all were cut apart by his fierce axe swings. He laughed at the stupid demon and kicked its head like a soccer ball into the crowd who erupted in cheers.
-PAUL! PAUL! PAUL! PAUL!
A young good-looking girl he had not yet bedded caught the gaze of his bright green eyes, yes everyday there was another demon but there was also another girl.
At night Paul was in his bedroom with the girl her name was Erika.
-Wow I really wish I was a guardian like you they are so cool! The girl told him.
-We sure are but there is still hope for you, you are only seventeen years old.
-Yes, I really hope the spark awakens in me soon, before I turn eighteen and becomes useless.
-A pretty girl like you will never be useless there is always kitchen work and bed work for that matter, about that come here.
He grabbed her and kissed her lips and kissed her neck and then began to wander downwards with his lips to her big breasts, she felt her nipples getting erect and grabbed his boxers where she could feel something else getting erect. She moaned with pleasure as he licked her nipples.
-And what about you, you are nineteen years old are you not going to take the slayer test?
-Enough talk! He pulled down his boxers and gently pulled her head down by the hair.
-I am tired of your babbling find a better use for your mouth. And she did they had a whole night of pleasure.
Next day Paul stood ready again the fire was burning as it usually did but something was different, wrong it was way bigger then before in fact it was enormous he began to worry exactly what was he going to face today? Never mind as long as it was a fire type he could easily bet it as before… and then he saw it, it was a fire type but he could barely believe his eyes! A long snake like neck the size of a fullgrown anaconda and on top of it an awful head scaly with big burning red eyes with a complete lack of empathy for humans in them. On top of the ugly reptilian head there was two goat like horn on its head a dragon… in fact a fucking demon dragon.
The crowd was shrieking in terror, Paul saw children crying of fear even nurse Anna looked terrified. But fucking shit did hear tits look amazing Paul thought if he were to be killed by this overgrown lizard he had only one regret that he had never had that woman, but she never had shown any interest in him he wondered why, he did not think it was the age difference plenty of older women had shown interest in him before, it must be that baby growing in her belly it had recently began to show.
-I AM THE DEMONIC SCALELORD, THE BURNER OF CITITES, EATER OF HUMANS, MEN, WOMAN AND CHILDREN, THERE IS NO DIFFERNCE FOR THE SCALELORD YOU ARE ALL FRESHMEAT, ALL WILL BE CONSUMED FOR A HUNGER!
Paul was feeling afraid, he had only one chance it was to make a big defensive wall of water he began summoning it at once.
The demonic dragon blew fire at him, but his water barrier was still protecting him against the flames.
-MY BIG BROTHER RULES THE BURNED COUNTRY AND THIS TOO WILL BE A BURNED COUNTRY, FIRST THIS SCHOOL WILL FALL, THEN THE CAPITOL, THEN EVERYWHERE ELSE, ME AND MY SPAWN WILL RULE THIS LAND FOR CENTURIES JUST AS MY BROTHER DOES IN THE COUNTRY ONCE CALLED “CANADA” BY HUMAN TONGUE, NOW BURNED TO THE GROUND, ALL WILL BE ASHES…
-Shut the fuck up you stupid fucking chameleon with wings! Paul was getting tired of the scale lords bullshit, no one ever told him dragons were such dramatic speakers and why the fuck did it have to scream all the time.
-Boast all you want reptile brain your fire attacks will never break this water wall and you will never defeat my you hear that? Never!
-OH, BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK HUMAN, A DRAGON ALWAYS COMES PREPARED IN FACT I DEFEATED YOU BEFORE I EVEN CAME HERE WITH MY MASTERFUL PLAN…
-You are lying, fire a firebreather you are sure blowing a lot of smoke… and then Tobias portal opened in the air above him, Nils lightning bolt came out of it and shocked the water user, his whole body was in agony and pain but it ended just as his life ended with one big bite from the dragon devouring the boys entire upper body leaving only his legs and feet. The dragon then quickly swiped at nurses Annas belly and killed Roberts baby inside she had little time to mourn her loss before she to was eating alive by the giant dragon. After that he began to burn, teachers and kids both, and then he burned the school to the ground before flying to the capitol.
CHAPTER 20: THE DEMON
Ivana and Nicklas were making love when suddenly a knocking on the window interrupted. Ivana quickly got up walked to the window in only her panties she looked out and saw a bat knocking on the window.
-It must be my new familiar she told her lover.
-Are you sure? I don’t know if we can trust that thing it might bite us and suck our blood.
-Too late! Ivana opened the window and in came the bat flying. It took a rest on her shoulder and she petted it.
-It’s kind of cute I am going to call him Bruce after the fallen slayer.
-Yeah, Yeah, her boyfriend told her seemingly unimpressed he wished that the flying rat had not interrupted before he could finish. They could her Nils and Elina screaming in the room next door, the both quickly got dressed and ran to check on their friends.
-What the fuck happened, is Tobias… dead!? Ivana asked.
-I sure as hell hope so I slit his throat good. And could you please put a top on… Nils stop looking at her tits. Nils blushed his cheeks red with shame.
-I was not looking, he lied but to no avail Elina could see through his bullshit. Also, there is more important things to worry about then tits.
-More important things than tits!? I found that hard to believe said Nicklas still horny.
-Well, there is the dead man on the ground Ivana intervened.
-That fucker tried to murder me in my sleep, I tried to shoot lightning at him but he opened a portal and then luckily Elina slit his throat.
-A portal? But where did it go… oh fuck! Ivana realized.
-Paul! The school! We must alert the grownups Nicklas said full of fear.
-Yes, lets get dressed and tell them. I like your new familiar by the way, its ugly but kind of cute at the same if you know what I mean?
-Oh, I totally know what you mean said Ivana and she and her boyfriend left to get dressed in their room, Nils and Elina did the same thing.
Alicia was struggling to fit the slayers big hard cock in her mouth like usual she looked him in his eyes, she knew how much he liked that.
-Oh, my god baby I am cumming! You have tits to live for but eyes to kill for. She swallowed then told him…
-I might make you keep that promise. They both got dressed just in time for the guardians to enter.
- Tobias tried to kill us, he must be the demon Nils told the slayers.
-Tobias the mailman? I hardly think so he is to much off a bitch, he has always been jealous of slayers with useful powers he might have been working for the demon though… yes that makes sense it probably promised him great power in exchange for his services.
-Okay but who could the demon be? Its not you and its not Alicia or she could have killed you just now.
-I agree with your deduction, also I think Tor is blameless or he could have used his tank to kill me and Nils both when we were driving the Tesla.
-That leaves only David and Arne said Alicia.
-My, d-ad Nicklas stuttered.
-Yes, he is closing the demon portal just now. Said Alicia.
-But if he is the demon he might summon a legion of demons through it, instead of closing it Robert said with a voice full of terror.
-Fuck! Guard let me and the dark slayer out.
-I am afraid I cannot my lady, you may leave but Robert must stay, Arne gave strict instructions I am afraid.
-But its an emergency! She screamed with anger.
-Sorry no can do.
-May I look at the slayers confiscated weapons? Nils politely asked.
-I am sure that is in order the guard told him.
Nils grabbed the gorgon head and with a shock of lightning made her open her eyes, turning the man in front of him to stone.
-Quick grab the keys and release them both Arne must be stopped.
Elina grabbed the keys and unlocked the door.
The team all ran outside where Arne was at the demon gate ready to summon a spell, David was there with one hundred men.
-Now the gate will be closed by my spell, Blizz…
-BALEFIRE! Before the old man could finish, he was interrupted by a fire spell from David, burning Nicklas dad alive killing him in the most painful way, he died screaming in pain.
-No! Nicklas screamed!
-Fear not he was a demon and I have saved us all David tried to calm the boy down.
-Oh, really? I am afraid you just used balefire the most powerful fire spell and seem unbothered by it, I think in fact you might be the demon the man closest to David said.
-Oh, you stupid human of course I am David said and ripped the mans heart out of his chest and crushed it by closing his hand into a fist. In fact I am Damian the son of lord Lucifer I will overthrow my father and sit on the throne as the demonic king the true ruler of hell. And balefire is not the most powerful fire spell, but this is.
-Run! Robert told the team and the all ran inside to hide in the castle walls. David snapped his fingers.
-INFERNO! The castle yard erupted in hellish flames burning one hundred men alive the air filled with smoke and the stench from burned corpses.
-Before I leave, I summon legion.
Damian disappeared into the flaming hell gate and ten demons appeared as one the all said…
-WE ARE LEGION!
-Fuck there is ten of them, ten that’s just too many, in fact its should be an illegal amount Elina said.
-Well lets make them one less Robert said before taking aim at a one cyclops his first shoot making it a no-eyed cyclops the next five shoots annihilating what was rest of its head making brain and blood splatter all over the other demons.
-And then there were nine Alicia said she threw two daggers that guided by her wind powers easily hit their goals and penetrated the brains of two demons, both falling dead to the ground.
-Now there is only seven Robert counted and with lightning speed quickly emptied his other revolver into one demon making them only six.
A half man half rhino demon was quickly rushing towards Nils he used the gorgon head to turn it into stone.
-That makes five, make yourself useful you can mourn your father later he said to Nicklas.
-Sure, and that makes four Nicklas obliterated a troll-demon with a shot from his plasma cannon. Then he summoned his dads polar bear to attack another troll the huge bear struggled with the troll and eventually overpowered it and began eating it alive while it screamed in agony.
-Only three left said Elina flying high dropping stones crushing another demon a lizard man with her rocks from above.
-This one is mine! Ivana burned a vampire demon alive.
-Only two left! Great work team said Tor as a werewolf came flying at Ivana but the slayer saved the girl by frying the werewolf`s brain with a lightning bolt.
-Last one! Said Paulina and attacked it with a water attack but the demon seemed unaffected.
It was a chimera it had a goat head and lion head on top of a half goat half lion body and its tail was a long snake.
-Fuck snakes! Why is it always snakes! Why can the not be cute like kittens, I fucking hate snakes.
Ivana said appalled by the look of the demon.
-Well you would not kill a kitten would you? Said Elina swinging down from above quickly cutting the snake tail of with one swift sword strike. She flew up again and summoned another rock crushing the chimera. And then she saw it a huge dragon approaching.
-Fuck! A dragon approaching, and its fucking huge. Everyone take cover in the castle. Everyone got in the castle including the polar bear. More and more demons were coming out of the hell gate they seemed to be a never ending army. Humans on top of the castle wall attacked with all they had shooting and killing demon after demon with machinegun-fire, bow and arrows, sniper rifles and grenades, countless demons was laying dead on the ground but more and more came out of the cursed hellhole and the humans were starting the get low on ammo.
And then the angel came riding on Pegasus’s winged horses of heaven four of them and the fifth one, their leader the angel lord Klara was riding on a unicorn with a longhorn and wings.
The unicorn pierced through the body of a frogman with its horn and Klara swung her angel blade left and right decapitating frogmen and lizard men both they were laying on the ground holding their lost limbs and getting trampled to death by the Pegasus’s and their riders killed even more of the enemy hordes.
Then Gargos appeared riding the big dragon it launched a fire attack against the angels, they all escaped except one both she and her winged horse were burned to ashes. The angels were flying towards the castle, but the dragon was close behind them, all the humans started shooting at it but the dragon seemed to not even take notice, its thick scales protecting it, it did not slow down one bit and swallowed one of the angel riders whole leaving only her Pegasus. The angels were inside the castle walls now and Klara walked towards Elina and hugged her.
-Hey, how did you escape? I thought I was to find my father to release you. Elina told her aunt.
-Yes, sweet child but I fear your father must be dead and the magic spell used to lock us in heaven vanished when his life ended. Klara told her niece.
-What, my father locked you away, why would he do that? I thought he was an angel just like you!
-Well sometimes a man can be demon and angel both, but we will talk later, this is your ultimate test to see if you can became a slayer and the same goes for your friends, I can see you are wearing armor and look battle ready now drink up from the Holy grail you need all the enhancements you can get to stand a chance.
The dragon was flying around burning everyman it could find on the castle wall, Elina could hear them screaming in pain as they died.
Alicia was trying to blow the dragon away with her wind magic blowing a powerful wind of gust it subverted the dragons breath and blew it in opposite direction.
-Good try slayer but ultimately pointless the demon lord riding on top of the dragon told her.
Gargos launched a quick fireball at her it hit and burned her entire body. Paulina quickly hit her with a water spell putting the fire out.
It saved Alicia’s life but not her beauty. The dragon breathed fire at Paulina but she quickly put up a water wall protecting her and saving her life. Ivana stood with four men surrounding her they were all shooting at the dragon.
-The eyes try to hit its eyes! Ivana launched a fireball at the dragon which only made it laugh.
-Ha-ha fire will not hurt a dragon young girl. It returned fire burning and killing the men surrounding Ivana, but she seemed unhurt.
-I am the daughter of Vlad Tepes the impaler, the most powerful vampire of all time also known as Dracula. He fed me and my brother both on dragon brains and dragon hearts. I am immune to both sunlight and fire you bitch! No overgrown iguana with wings is going to kill me.
-D-Dracula? Gargos stuttered the winged demon seemed shocked by this news. Ivanas bat flew towards the dragon, morphed into the form of a man and cut its head of with a quick strike.
-Yes, it is me Gargos you little bitch! Dracula was levitating in the air in front of him holding the mighty sword called dragon slayer. I will not let anyone kill my daughter and I am no friend of Lucius or Damian as you know, the throne of hell belongs to me and no one else.
-Fuck Damian, and fuck Lucius both! Gargos cares only about Gargos. The winged demon lord flew away.
-Dark slayer! I will give you your sword back but in return you must keep my daughter safe and also Transylvania wants peace with your country, the enemy of my enemy is my friend or so they say. We both have a common enemy in this child of the devil Damian, we must unite our forces and crush him! Should you say no to my offer, trust me your country will be invaded and my vampire forces will drink blood from men, woman and children all.
-Seems I have very little choice I agree to your offer bloodsucker.
-Go after Gargos he must not escape! Klara sent her two remaining angels, Tilde and Sara after him. I will stay here with the young one, two against one you will be able to handle him.
And then out of the hell gate Nils could see Lucius appear.
PART 3
-This is it! Time to finally kill that horned motherfucker. Nils screamed at the top of his lungs. Nicklas created a slide made of ice for Nils to slide down towards the demon.
-Robert and Elina stay close to me, Nicklas stand back and attack from a distance.
-But!
-No buts just do as I say Nils told him, assuming the role of team leader.
-I will fly my unicorn into battle and you can take the leftover Pegasus young one, Klara told Elina.
-Sure, my own Pegasus so fucking cool! I am going to name her Peggy Elina said.
-Lightning storm! Tor summoned his ultimate lightning attack against the enemy horde, demons exploded, and were lit on fire, hundreds of them they all died in immense pain. Tor passed out by the strain of using this powerful attack.
-Two against one it is an easy win! Sara told Gargos the demon lord, she and her fellow angel Tilde was heading towards him.
-It sure is! Gargos responded he ripped the left wing off Sara the angel, and Tilde ripped off the right wing. Then the demon pushed her of the Pegasus, she fell with her head being smashed against the ground killing her with her brains out.
-Finally! we can be together my love! The angel Tilde kissed the demon gargos.
-Yes, my love I have missed you so much and I need you to enter a house no demon can enter.
-Of, course it will be no trouble angels can enter after all.
Tors powerful attack had really thinned out the enemy hordes, but more and more demons appeared out of the hell gate all proclaiming:
-WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE MANY.
Robert emptied both of his six shooter revolvers with straight headshots.
-Well you might be many but now you are fewer.
Nils was running towards Lucius with sword in hand.
-My sword sings, but it knows only one song, the song of death for demon kind! Nils screamed and swung his sword left and right, splitting skulls, cutting demon heads of, cutting bodies in half and finally stabbing a demon straight through the heart as it was dying it proclaimed:
-WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE M-
-Yes, but now there is one less of you, Nils stomped its face in. Shutting the demon up for good.
Nicklas was in the back as Nils had told him, he was riding his dads polar bear, killing an insane amount of demons with its twin machineguns.
Paulina was ending demon lives with her water sword, Nils shot an electric ball at Lucius but the demon was ready for it, he countered the attack and smashed Nils electric charge like a tennis ball with his devils fork the ball was sent flying towards Paulina and hit her, frying her brains out instantly killing her in the most painful way.
Elina dropped rocks from above that smashed demons to death under her, Klara shot her bow and arrow piercing demons brains, eyes and necks killing another then. The legion appeared to be running low on demons finally. One gargoyle flew to Gargos for support.
-WE ARE LEGION, WE ARE MANY, LORD GARGOS HELP LORD LUCIUS. Gargos ripped the heart straight out of Legions chest.
-Fuck Legion and fuck Lucius too! Gargos is only concerned about himself he said before starting to eat the still beating heart of his fellow demon.
Lucius ran towards Nils trying to pierce him with the devils fork, Nils rolled and cut the demons left knee.
-Shit! Fucking shit! The demon lord screamed. He tried to pierce Nils brain with his sharp tail but Nils quickly cut it of with his dagger and then quickly threw that dagger into the demons back.
Lucius drew the dagger from his back and his wound began to have blood flowing out of it. He again strikes at the young guardian but Nils parried the strike with his sword, Lucius cut the boys chest with a quick stab with the dagger.
Nils fell to the ground he had managed to save the life of his friend but not himself.
-Ha-Ha, finally revenge for my brother! My legion will kill all your friends, then everyone in this town, then this country will fall, I will rule for eternity, and Damian will be the true ruler of hell… excuse my what were you saying? Nils spit blood from his mouth.
-L-Lightning storm! And a giant bolt of lightning hit the horned demon making his entire head explode and all of his troops around him too exploded leaving only blood and guts left of them.
-But I thought you had to take to Slayer test to use such magic? Elina asked.
-He has completed his test, he is now a slayer and I trust you and all your friends will be to.
-Okay so now Nicklas can close the demon portal. Elina said.
-Wait just one second Robert said and walked towards the demon gate disappearing into hell.

THE GUARDIAN PART 4 BY FREDDEGRAN

CHAPTER 16: Road to the capitol part 2
-Where have you been? Tobias asked after coming out of a teleportation hole.
-A place that does not exist.
-You are LATE the council will NOT be happy. And furthermore I heard Bruce is dead surely that’s not true? And what is this nonsense about a house that, does not exist? A place either exists or it does not.
-Sadly, he is Robert answered with a solemn tone of voice. And as far as the house goes, don’t even bother a stupid simpleton like you would never understand.
-Breaking the rules AND losing another slayer, your kind don’t grow on trees you know the council will be absolutely furious.
-Fuck the council! Robert cursed.
-E-excuse me? Tobias stuttered.
-Never mind… let me handle to council when we get there.
-And when WILL you be getting there?
-Asap. I am speaking with Tor via telepathic link as we speak, he is coming here with his electric tank and Tesla car.
-Telepathic? Tobias asked.
-Yes, a skill all guardians learn after taking the test to become a slayer, but you would not know about that you glorified postman now piss off!
-O-h okay-y Tobias stuttered and teleported away steaming mad.
Robert looked for his mirror shield and found it at the dead Gorgons corpse.
-I fucking hate gorgons Robert said if only we could kill the real Medusa then maybe we could get rid of them once and for all.
-I agree said Ivana I fucking hate snakes and this bitch got snakes for hair.
-This bitch needs a haircut said Robert and cut the snakes off, when thinking about it she needs a beheading the slayer cut her head off.
-Well she looks a lot better without that face! Ivana made the team burst out laughing.
-What are you going to use that ugly head for anyway? Nils asked.
-You will see was the only answer he got from the slayer.
The team waited for a few hours for Tor to come and get there.
The powerful electromancer from the capitol arrived in his electric powered tank it had machineguns and a big cannon on top following it was a auto driving Tesla a car fueled by electricity it had two M-60 machine guns mounted on it.
-Robert my old friend! You are in bad standing with the council, but you must know that already…
-Fuck them! Robert said.
The two slayers joined each other in laughter.
-Anyways so these must be the young guardians, but there is four and not three as I been told and they seem to be older than I been told to.
-Well you must grow up fast on the battlefield.
-I am betting that’s the only explanation you care to give.
-Sure, but on the upside these are all in appropriate age for taking the slayer test soon.
-Four new slayers that would be a blessing indeed! It would really increase our numbers in the capitol. And the hydromancer Paul to…
- I would not expect much from the water boy I left him at the school because it is not an important place so these more useful guardians should not waste their time there, they are more needed in the capitol. Paul seems to be to afraid to take the slayer test anyway.
-If you say so! Now young guardians let`s roll out. Tor said.
-Me and Nils will take the Tesla and the rest can join Tor in his tank.
Robert was driving the Tesla.
-Will you let me drive!? Nils asked excitedly.
-Ha-ha NEVER! Cars are real rare in the new world and even in the old world these cars where expensive as fuck and this one is tricked out with machine guns and autopilot to boot I will not let a non-slayer hand touch it period.
-Oh, you are no fun! Nils said.
-Well but I am alive and have been for ages and I intend you keep you alive to little friend.
-How old are you anyway?
-Never ask a slayer his true age.
Also how does turning seventeen feels? You are old enough to take the slayer test and you and Elina are both above fifteen now that makes you both legal to do you know what, but that’s none of my business.
-Damn right its none of your business!
-Well the guardian gene seems to be more common in families where one or both parents have it so it`s important to reproduce.
-Well that’s IS true, Nicklas his brother and his father all had it. But worry about your own reproducing and I will worry about mine.
-I am hearing what you are saying kiddo and I think I might be a father soon away.
-WTF!? Really? Who is the lucky bride?
-Well she is no bride, but you might consider her lucky and I will keep this secret as a surprise for later. Now I know for a fact that one of the members of the council is a demon I will need you to figure out which one.
-You don’t think its Tor do you?
-Maybe if it is he got the upper hand in that tank.
-You don’t think its Arne, Nicklas dad?
-Maybe and if it is be ready to kill him without hesitation.
They kept driving and eventually arrived at the capitol.
CHAPTER 17: THE CAPITOL
They entered the castle in the capitol it was surrounded by a great wall with mounted machine guns and mortars ready to fire grenades at any occult threat or of course Satanist`s some humans had chosen to fight for evil selfish and un-empathic people often did the dirty deeds of demons wishes, wishing themselves to be rewarded with demonic powers in return. Three thousand people lived inside these city walls making it by far the biggest city in the country of course it was said that in the old world this city had hold over one million people but that was before the demons invaded now there was far less then a million in the entire country. Nils walked looking around at the people seeing the approving and wanting looks of young girls, mostly blue eyed with blonde hair but also dark eyed beauties with dark hair to match and even a few gingers with freckled faces. They were eating him up with their eyes eyeing him from head to toe which granted him a most unapproving gaze and a shove from his girlfriend Elina.
-Don’t get any funny ideas! She told him off.
-I would never he assured and kissed his beloved.
The crowd erupted with cheers of joy the only thing better then two guardians were two guardians in
love because this meant more guardian babies in the future.
The girls looked all looked at Elina with jealousy in their eyes and the boys with wanting eyes.
Nils caught his girlfriend eyeing they boys all tall and of muscular build with six packs of abs and big strong arms all of them with their shirts of it was a sunny day after all. Most boys were blonde haired and blue eyed like Nils himself and a few had darker hair a few had red ginger hair and a few were even dark skinned. Nils pulled Elina`s arm
-Now you don’t get any ideas.
- I would never! She said and kissed her truelove.
The crowd started cheering again.
Ivana was wanting for attention and did not want to be outdone by Elina and she kissed Nicklas.
This really mad the crowd go wild the only thing better than ONE guardian couple were TWO things were really looking up. Nils could see the older women looking at Robert with dreams in their eyes but he seemed uninterested which was strange he was usually the player type. The team entered the castle once a King of the old world had lived here Nils knew but now it was the base of the Council the strongest slayers in the country.
-You are late dark slayer! I woman screamed Nils was in awe by her beauty she had a body to live fear but eyes you could die for, she was wearing high heels and a short white dress that exposed her long slim legs that just never quit. She had an hourglass body with a slim waist and big tits and big ass with more curves on her body than a motorway.
-Nice to meet you to Alicia I been missing you sweetheart. Robert said in return he could not take his eyes of the woman.
Nils was thinking Robert, in love? But with such a beautiful woman maybe it was not surprising, and she was a slayer to boot. Maybe she was even the woman that was wearing Roberts baby in her stomach? But she did not look pregnant.
-Don’t call me sweetheart dear. Alicia said to the dark slayer.
- And where is that dark armor of yours? I always thought you looked good in it, at least the helmet covered up that face of yours.
-Thanks for the compliments sweetheart but I am afraid I lost it in a fight with necromancer and a zombie dragon.
-A fucking zombie dragon!? You got to be kidding me.
-Actually, the slayer tells the truth. Elina intervened.
-And who is this young lady? A guardian I suppose.
-Yes, a guardian and an angel to boot. Robert answered.
-An angel!? A man wearing all red joined the conversation. It was David the pyromancer one of the most powerful slayers in the country and supposedly the world.
-Robert speaks the truth Tor the electro-mancer joined in on the conversation. Tobias joined the room via teleportation.
-So the dark slayer is finally here… Alicia the aero-mancer, Tor with electric powers, David with fire now we are only missing Arne the one with ice powers.
-My dad! Where is he? Nicklas asked.
-Oh, he was out closing a demon portal last I saw him.
-C-closing a demon portal!? The guardians were all surprised by this news.
- I did not know you could close them? Nils asked confused.
-Oh, but you can well you cannot but a powerful ice magic spell can close them so Arne can do the job and maybe his son can also learn the spell after he becomes a slayer.
-Yes, this is my hopes we cannot have kids standing around guarding these portals from hell all the time sooner or later they will fall to a demon.
Everyone In the room knew that Robert spoke the truth.
And then Arne joined the room with his familiar a huge polar bear wearing armor and with two miniguns mounted on him. Arne was looking old and tired he had a long grey beard and grey hair looking 90-100 years old.
-I closed the damned portal now lets discuss what we should do with Robert the rulebreaker.
CHAPTER 18: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
-Robert should immediately be stripped of his rank as number one slayer is anyone opposing this, Arne asked and was met with silence.
-Furthermore, he should be sent to the dungeons while we figure out what to do with him is anyone opposing this?
-I am! I sure as fuck am what are my crimes really? Robert screamed in anger.
-Well you broke the rules which released the demon lord Gargos on our lands and furthermore you got a fellow slayer, Bruce the shapeshifter killed.
-Oh, fuck the rules! Don’t you get it the demons set the rules and try to bend them all the time. I got you no less then four new guardians soon to be slayers all of them and all of them strong, one of them is even an angel for fucks sake! A fucking angel! Do you hear what I am saying?
-Quite frankly I think everyone can hear your screaming there is no need for that or your crude language show the council a little bit more respect.
-Fuck the council! Robert said in anger before realizing that was NOT the right thing to say.
-Show him to the dungeons at once since he is no longer number one I am, confiscate his weapons before locking him away this meeting is over.
The guardian team sat at the dinner table enjoying a meal fit for a king of course the guardians and slayers could eat all they wanted here as they could anywhere in the world. Nils felt a bit uneasy buy this looking around seeing jealous gazes from other kids and grownups. The kids still had hopes at least sometime around twelve to eighteen years of age there was always a chance that he guardian gene would kick in but once you were adult… if it was not meant to be it just was going to happen and they would have to seek out hard work of building walls or risking their lives on dangerous expeditions scavenging for supplies outside of the walls and then he knew the people inside of the walls were the lucky ones.
The less introspective boy Nicklas seemed completely unfazed but all of this and keep stuffing his face with one plate after another without a deeper thought in his mind. Elina was enjoying the food to chicken, pork, fish even potatoes and greens she was not a picky eater. Ivana was eating to either though she rather have her food alive so she could suck the blood out of it she was a vampire after all but she knew there would be time for such pleasures later she did not want to make a scene at the dinner table. A one armed boy stepped over to the guardians table.
-So these are our new protectors and overlords? He asked with a condensing voice filled to the brim with jealous.
-Sure, are and who are you a thief buy the looks of it? Nils did not care for the tone of the voice of the one-armed boy one bit.
-Stealing once off with your arm if you do it again off with your head, sex crimes of with your dick and for murder you will be hanged.
- So, he is a thief then are you not boy? You do have your dick left I presume? Ivana said and laughed.
-Shut up you vampire bitch! I was starving and stole some chicken what about it? They boy was steaming mad and grabbed the chicken off Ivana’s plate.
-You are not even eating it anyway. You fucking spoiled bitch! That really made Nicklas angry he rushed at the boy but boy was older and stronger and knocked Nicklas down with a powerful punch to the jaw.
-I had enough of this shit! Nils punched they boy with a boxing knockout punch like Mike Tyson used to do in the old world the boy fell back and his head hit the floor… dead.
-Fuck! Nils had forgotten about his new robot arm and accidently killed the boy with his punch.
-Take him to the dungeons! Arne the slayer said.
Nils and Robert were sitting in cells next to each other.
-Come on that’s bullshit he started it and did not mean to kill him it was an accident they will not hang you for that. The slayer informed his guardian friend.
-I sure hope so.
-When you get out don’t forget to take the scraps of my armor on the world’s highest mountain there is a dwarf master weaponsmith he will use it to craft the dark blade for you the most powerful sword in existence.
-If I ever get out of here I will.
Patricia entered the dungeon keep wearing a white dress with her shoulder straps strategically pulled down exposing her young smooth looking skin and the top of her big firm tits. She was holding a bottle of vodka in one hand and a Havana cigar in the other.
-Just the three things I needed, smoke, drink and the touch of a woman Robert said.
-Oh, we will be doing more than just touching each other but you young guardian you must go to your friends I put in the word for you and you are free. The guard opened Nils cell door he could not wait to get out of there and join his friends.
-Oh, thank you so much I owe my life to you, and have fun.
-Yes, you do and we will the female-slayer answered him.
Nils joined his friends at the hell gate a young woman stood ready it was Paulina, Paul`s twin sister also a hydromancer with long blonde hair and bright green eyes. She was holding a big sword that seemed to be made out of water. Today’s opponent appeard from the flaming circle a goat headed fire demon holding a devils fork a poor match for the water user. The demon swung at Paulina with the trident but she quickly parried it and with another quick strike separated the demons head from its body.
Late at night the guardians was sleeping Ivana and Nicklas in the same bed in one room and Nils and Elina together in their bed in another room. In the darkness a shape appeared he was sneaking slow and carefully to their bed with a knife in hand just when he was about to strike Nils suddenly woke up shooting and electric beam at him Tobias opened a portal and Nils charge disappeared to god knows where.
Elina was also awake now and cut the teleporters throat with a dagger she always kept under her pillow. So Tobias was the demon Elina said to Nils.
-N-no, Tobias spat blood from his mouth finding it difficult to talk as he lay dying in a pool of his own blood. But I am working for him.
-Why did he want you to kill me? Nils asked.
-Kill you? No, he wanted the school… it was the last words Tobias ever uttered in life. Nils looked at Elina in shock when he realized what they meant.
CHAPTER 19: THE SCHOOL
Paul was standing ready to guard everyday there was a new demon to slay which did not bother him much since they kept being fire types which was an easy match for him and his water-powers. He had created a shield and axe out of water, the demon appeared
in front of him it was a coyote burning with fire holding a sword and shield, he rushed and attacked it.
The demon launched a fireball at him but he easily guarded against it with his water-shield he tackled the demon and while it was laying on its back he began chopping it to pieces, legs, arms, chest and head all were cut apart by his fierce axe swings. He laughed at the stupid demon and kicked its head like a soccer ball into the crowd who erupted in cheers.
-PAUL! PAUL! PAUL! PAUL!
A young good-looking girl he had not yet bedded caught the gaze of his bright green eyes, yes everyday there was another demon but there was also another girl.
At night Paul was in his bedroom with the girl her name was Erika.
-Wow I really wish I was a guardian like you they are so cool! The girl told him.
-We sure are but there is still hope for you, you are only seventeen years old.
-Yes, I really hope the spark awakens in me soon, before I turn eighteen and becomes useless.
-A pretty girl like you will never be useless there is always kitchen work and bed work for that matter, about that come here.
He grabbed her and kissed her lips and kissed her neck and then began to wander downwards with his lips to her big breasts, she felt her nipples getting erect and grabbed his boxers where she could feel something else getting erect. She moaned with pleasure as he licked her nipples.
-And what about you, you are nineteen years old are you not going to take the slayer test?
-Enough talk! He pulled down his boxers and gently pulled her head down by the hair.
-I am tired of your babbling find a better use for your mouth. And she did they had a whole night of pleasure.
Next day Paul stood ready again the fire was burning as it usually did but something was different, wrong it was way bigger then before in fact it was enormous he began to worry exactly what was he going to face today? Never mind as long as it was a fire type he could easily bet it as before… and then he saw it, it was a fire type but he could barely believe his eyes! A long snake like neck the size of a fullgrown anaconda and on top of it an awful head scaly with big burning red eyes with a complete lack of empathy for humans in them. On top of the ugly reptilian head there was two goat like horn on its head a dragon… in fact a fucking demon dragon.
The crowd was shrieking in terror, Paul saw children crying of fear even nurse Anna looked terrified. But fucking shit did hear tits look amazing Paul thought if he were to be killed by this overgrown lizard he had only one regret that he had never had that woman, but she never had shown any interest in him he wondered why, he did not think it was the age difference plenty of older women had shown interest in him before, it must be that baby growing in her belly it had recently began to show.
-I AM THE DEMONIC SCALELORD, THE BURNER OF CITITES, EATER OF HUMANS, MEN, WOMAN AND CHILDREN, THERE IS NO DIFFERNCE FOR THE SCALELORD YOU ARE ALL FRESHMEAT, ALL WILL BE CONSUMED FOR A HUNGER!
Paul was feeling afraid, he had only one chance it was to make a big defensive wall of water he began summoning it at once.
The demonic dragon blew fire at him, but his water barrier was still protecting him against the flames.
-MY BIG BROTHER RULES THE BURNED COUNTRY AND THIS TOO WILL BE A BURNED COUNTRY, FIRST THIS SCHOOL WILL FALL, THEN THE CAPITOL, THEN EVERYWHERE ELSE, ME AND MY SPAWN WILL RULE THIS LAND FOR CENTURIES JUST AS MY BROTHER DOES IN THE COUNTRY ONCE CALLED “CANADA” BY HUMAN TONGUE, NOW BURNED TO THE GROUND, ALL WILL BE ASHES…
-Shut the fuck up you stupid fucking chameleon with wings! Paul was getting tired of the scale lords bullshit, no one ever told him dragons were such dramatic speakers and why the fuck did it have to scream all the time.
-Boast all you want reptile brain your fire attacks will never break this water wall and you will never defeat my you hear that? Never!
-OH, BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK HUMAN, A DRAGON ALWAYS COMES PREPARED IN FACT I DEFEATED YOU BEFORE I EVEN CAME HERE WITH MY MASTERFUL PLAN…
-You are lying, fire a firebreather you are sure blowing a lot of smoke… and then Tobias portal opened in the air above him, Nils lightning bolt came out of it and shocked the water user, his whole body was in agony and pain but it ended just as his life ended with one big bite from the dragon devouring the boys entire upper body leaving only his legs and feet. The dragon then quickly swiped at nurses Annas belly and killed Roberts baby inside she had little time to mourn her loss before she to was eating alive by the giant dragon. After that he began to burn, teachers and kids both, and then he burned the school to the ground before flying to the capitol.
CHAPTER 20: THE DEMON
Ivana and Nicklas were making love when suddenly a knocking on the window interrupted. Ivana quickly got up walked to the window in only her panties she looked out and saw a bat knocking on the window.
-It must be my new familiar she told her lover.
-Are you sure? I don’t know if we can trust that thing it might bite us and suck our blood.
-Too late! Ivana opened the window and in came the bat flying. It took a rest on her shoulder and she petted it.
-It’s kind of cute I am going to call him Bruce after the fallen slayer.
-Yeah, Yeah, her boyfriend told her seemingly unimpressed he wished that the flying rat had not interrupted before he could finish. They could her Nils and Elina screaming in the room next door, the both quickly got dressed and ran to check on their friends.
-What the fuck happened, is Tobias… dead!? Ivana asked.
-I sure as hell hope so I slit his throat good. And could you please put a top on… Nils stop looking at her tits. Nils blushed his cheeks red with shame.
-I was not looking, he lied but to no avail Elina could see through his bullshit. Also, there is more important things to worry about then tits.
-More important things than tits!? I found that hard to believe said Nicklas still horny.
-Well, there is the dead man on the ground Ivana intervened.
-That fucker tried to murder me in my sleep, I tried to shoot lightning at him but he opened a portal and then luckily Elina slit his throat.
-A portal? But where did it go… oh fuck! Ivana realized.
-Paul! The school! We must alert the grownups Nicklas said full of fear.
-Yes, lets get dressed and tell them. I like your new familiar by the way, its ugly but kind of cute at the same if you know what I mean?
-Oh, I totally know what you mean said Ivana and she and her boyfriend left to get dressed in their room, Nils and Elina did the same thing.
Alicia was struggling to fit the slayers big hard cock in her mouth like usual she looked him in his eyes, she knew how much he liked that.
-Oh, my god baby I am cumming! You have tits to live for but eyes to kill for. She swallowed then told him…
-I might make you keep that promise. They both got dressed just in time for the guardians to enter.
- Tobias tried to kill us, he must be the demon Nils told the slayers.
-Tobias the mailman? I hardly think so he is to much off a bitch, he has always been jealous of slayers with useful powers he might have been working for the demon though… yes that makes sense it probably promised him great power in exchange for his services.
-Okay but who could the demon be? Its not you and its not Alicia or she could have killed you just now.
-I agree with your deduction, also I think Tor is blameless or he could have used his tank to kill me and Nils both when we were driving the Tesla.
-That leaves only David and Arne said Alicia.
-My, d-ad Nicklas stuttered.
-Yes, he is closing the demon portal just now. Said Alicia.
-But if he is the demon he might summon a legion of demons through it, instead of closing it Robert said with a voice full of terror.
-Fuck! Guard let me and the dark slayer out.
-I am afraid I cannot my lady, you may leave but Robert must stay, Arne gave strict instructions I am afraid.
-But its an emergency! She screamed with anger.
-Sorry no can do.
-May I look at the slayers confiscated weapons? Nils politely asked.
-I am sure that is in order the guard told him.
Nils grabbed the gorgon head and with a shock of lightning made her open her eyes, turning the man in front of him to stone.
-Quick grab the keys and release them both Arne must be stopped.
Elina grabbed the keys and unlocked the door.
The team all ran outside where Arne was at the demon gate ready to summon a spell, David was there with one hundred men.
-Now the gate will be closed by my spell, Blizz…
-BALEFIRE! Before the old man could finish, he was interrupted by a fire spell from David, burning Nicklas dad alive killing him in the most painful way, he died screaming in pain.
-No! Nicklas screamed!
-Fear not he was a demon and I have saved us all David tried to calm the boy down.
-Oh, really? I am afraid you just used balefire the most powerful fire spell and seem unbothered by it, I think in fact you might be the demon the man closest to David said.
-Oh, you stupid human of course I am David said and ripped the mans heart out of his chest and crushed it by closing his hand into a fist. In fact I am Damian the son of lord Lucifer I will overthrow my father and sit on the throne as the demonic king the true ruler of hell. And balefire is not the most powerful fire spell, but this is.
-Run! Robert told the team and the all ran inside to hide in the castle walls. David snapped his fingers.
-INFERNO! The castle yard erupted in hellish flames burning one hundred men alive the air filled with smoke and the stench from burned corpses.
-Before I leave, I summon legion.
Damian disappeared into the flaming hell gate and ten demons appeared as one the all said…
-WE ARE LEGION!
-Fuck there is ten of them, ten that’s just too many, in fact its should be an illegal amount Elina said.
-Well lets make them one less Robert said before taking aim at a one cyclops his first shoot making it a no-eyed cyclops the next five shoots annihilating what was rest of its head making brain and blood splatter all over the other demons.
-And then there were nine Alicia said she threw two daggers that guided by her wind powers easily hit their goals and penetrated the brains of two demons, both falling dead to the ground.
-Now there is only seven Robert counted and with lightning speed quickly emptied his other revolver into one demon making them only six.
A half man half rhino demon was quickly rushing towards Nils he used the gorgon head to turn it into stone.
-That makes five, make yourself useful you can mourn your father later he said to Nicklas.
-Sure, and that makes four Nicklas obliterated a troll-demon with a shot from his plasma cannon. Then he summoned his dads polar bear to attack another troll the huge bear struggled with the troll and eventually overpowered it and began eating it alive while it screamed in agony.
-Only three left said Elina flying high dropping stones crushing another demon a lizard man with her rocks from above.
-This one is mine! Ivana burned a vampire demon alive.
-Only two left! Great work team said Tor as a werewolf came flying at Ivana but the slayer saved the girl by frying the werewolf`s brain with a lightning bolt.
-Last one! Said Paulina and attacked it with a water attack but the demon seemed unaffected.
It was a chimera it had a goat head and lion head on top of a half goat half lion body and its tail was a long snake.
-Fuck snakes! Why is it always snakes! Why can the not be cute like kittens, I fucking hate snakes.
Ivana said appalled by the look of the demon.
-Well you would not kill a kitten would you? Said Elina swinging down from above quickly cutting the snake tail of with one swift sword strike. She flew up again and summoned another rock crushing the chimera. And then she saw it a huge dragon approaching.
-Fuck! A dragon approaching, and its fucking huge. Everyone take cover in the castle. Everyone got in the castle including the polar bear. More and more demons were coming out of the hell gate they seemed to be a never ending army. Humans on top of the castle wall attacked with all they had shooting and killing demon after demon with machinegun-fire, bow and arrows, sniper rifles and grenades, countless demons was laying dead on the ground but more and more came out of the cursed hellhole and the humans were starting the get low on ammo.
And then the angel came riding on Pegasus’s winged horses of heaven four of them and the fifth one, their leader the angel lord Klara was riding on a unicorn with a longhorn and wings.
The unicorn pierced through the body of a frogman with its horn and Klara swung her angel blade left and right decapitating frogmen and lizard men both they were laying on the ground holding their lost limbs and getting trampled to death by the Pegasus’s and their riders killed even more of the enemy hordes.
Then Gargos appeared riding the big dragon it launched a fire attack against the angels, they all escaped except one both she and her winged horse were burned to ashes. The angels were flying towards the castle, but the dragon was close behind them, all the humans started shooting at it but the dragon seemed to not even take notice, its thick scales protecting it, it did not slow down one bit and swallowed one of the angel riders whole leaving only her Pegasus. The angels were inside the castle walls now and Klara walked towards Elina and hugged her.
-Hey, how did you escape? I thought I was to find my father to release you. Elina told her aunt.
-Yes, sweet child but I fear your father must be dead and the magic spell used to lock us in heaven vanished when his life ended. Klara told her niece.
-What, my father locked you away, why would he do that? I thought he was an angel just like you!
-Well sometimes a man can be demon and angel both, but we will talk later, this is your ultimate test to see if you can became a slayer and the same goes for your friends, I can see you are wearing armor and look battle ready now drink up from the Holy grail you need all the enhancements you can get to stand a chance.
The dragon was flying around burning everyman it could find on the castle wall, Elina could hear them screaming in pain as they died.
Alicia was trying to blow the dragon away with her wind magic blowing a powerful wind of gust it subverted the dragons breath and blew it in opposite direction.
-Good try slayer but ultimately pointless the demon lord riding on top of the dragon told her.
Gargos launched a quick fireball at her it hit and burned her entire body. Paulina quickly hit her with a water spell putting the fire out.
It saved Alicia’s life but not her beauty. The dragon breathed fire at Paulina but she quickly put up a water wall protecting her and saving her life. Ivana stood with four men surrounding her they were all shooting at the dragon.
-The eyes try to hit its eyes! Ivana launched a fireball at the dragon which only made it laugh.
-Ha-ha fire will not hurt a dragon young girl. It returned fire burning and killing the men surrounding Ivana, but she seemed unhurt.
-I am the daughter of Vlad Tepes the impaler, the most powerful vampire of all time also known as Dracula. He fed me and my brother both on dragon brains and dragon hearts. I am immune to both sunlight and fire you bitch! No overgrown iguana with wings is going to kill me.
-D-Dracula? Gargos stuttered the winged demon seemed shocked by this news. Ivanas bat flew towards the dragon, morphed into the form of a man and cut its head of with a quick strike.
-Yes, it is me Gargos you little bitch! Dracula was levitating in the air in front of him holding the mighty sword called dragon slayer. I will not let anyone kill my daughter and I am no friend of Lucius or Damian as you know, the throne of hell belongs to me and no one else.
-Fuck Damian, and fuck Lucius both! Gargos cares only about Gargos. The winged demon lord flew away.
-Dark slayer! I will give you your sword back but in return you must keep my daughter safe and also Transylvania wants peace with your country, the enemy of my enemy is my friend or so they say. We both have a common enemy in this child of the devil Damian, we must unite our forces and crush him! Should you say no to my offer, trust me your country will be invaded and my vampire forces will drink blood from men, woman and children all.
-Seems I have very little choice I agree to your offer bloodsucker.
-Go after Gargos he must not escape! Klara sent her two remaining angels, Tilde and Sara after him. I will stay here with the young one, two against one you will be able to handle him.
And then out of the hell gate Nils could see Lucius appear.
PART 3
-This is it! Time to finally kill that horned motherfucker. Nils screamed at the top of his lungs. Nicklas created a slide made of ice for Nils to slide down towards the demon.
-Robert and Elina stay close to me, Nicklas stand back and attack from a distance.
-But!
-No buts just do as I say Nils told him, assuming the role of team leader.
-I will fly my unicorn into battle and you can take the leftover Pegasus young one, Klara told Elina.
-Sure, my own Pegasus so fucking cool! I am going to name her Peggy Elina said.
-Lightning storm! Tor summoned his ultimate lightning attack against the enemy horde, demons exploded, and were lit on fire, hundreds of them they all died in immense pain. Tor passed out by the strain of using this powerful attack.
-Two against one it is an easy win! Sara told Gargos the demon lord, she and her fellow angel Tilde was heading towards him.
-It sure is! Gargos responded he ripped the left wing off Sara the angel, and Tilde ripped off the right wing. Then the demon pushed her of the Pegasus, she fell with her head being smashed against the ground killing her with her brains out.
-Finally! we can be together my love! The angel Tilde kissed the demon gargos.
-Yes, my love I have missed you so much and I need you to enter a house no demon can enter.
-Of, course it will be no trouble angels can enter after all.
Tors powerful attack had really thinned out the enemy hordes, but more and more demons appeared out of the hell gate all proclaiming:
-WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE MANY.
Robert emptied both of his six shooter revolvers with straight headshots.
-Well you might be many but now you are fewer.
Nils was running towards Lucius with sword in hand.
-My sword sings, but it knows only one song, the song of death for demon kind! Nils screamed and swung his sword left and right, splitting skulls, cutting demon heads of, cutting bodies in half and finally stabbing a demon straight through the heart as it was dying it proclaimed:
-WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE M-
-Yes, but now there is one less of you, Nils stomped its face in. Shutting the demon up for good.
Nicklas was in the back as Nils had told him, he was riding his dads polar bear, killing an insane amount of demons with its twin machineguns.
Paulina was ending demon lives with her water sword, Nils shot an electric ball at Lucius but the demon was ready for it, he countered the attack and smashed Nils electric charge like a tennis ball with his devils fork the ball was sent flying towards Paulina and hit her, frying her brains out instantly killing her in the most painful way.
Elina dropped rocks from above that smashed demons to death under her, Klara shot her bow and arrow piercing demons brains, eyes and necks killing another then. The legion appeared to be running low on demons finally. One gargoyle flew to Gargos for support.
-WE ARE LEGION, WE ARE MANY, LORD GARGOS HELP LORD LUCIUS. Gargos ripped the heart straight out of Legions chest.
-Fuck Legion and fuck Lucius too! Gargos is only concerned about himself he said before starting to eat the still beating heart of his fellow demon.
Lucius ran towards Nils trying to pierce him with the devils fork, Nils rolled and cut the demons left knee.
-Shit! Fucking shit! The demon lord screamed. He tried to pierce Nils brain with his sharp tail but Nils quickly cut it of with his dagger and then quickly threw that dagger into the demons back.
Lucius drew the dagger from his back and his wound began to have blood flowing out of it. He again strikes at the young guardian but Nils parried the strike with his sword, Lucius cut the boys chest with a quick stab with the dagger.
Nils fell to the ground he had managed to save the life of his friend but not himself.
-Ha-Ha, finally revenge for my brother! My legion will kill all your friends, then everyone in this town, then this country will fall, I will rule for eternity, and Damian will be the true ruler of hell… excuse my what were you saying? Nils spit blood from his mouth.
-L-Lightning storm! And a giant bolt of lightning hit the horned demon making his entire head explode and all of his troops around him too exploded leaving only blood and guts left of them.
-But I thought you had to take to Slayer test to use such magic? Elina asked.
-He has completed his test, he is now a slayer and I trust you and all your friends will be to.
-Okay so now Nicklas can close the demon portal. Elina said.
-Wait just one second Robert said and walked towards the demon gate disappearing into hell.

[NEXT LEVEL EFFORT POST] Innovative gamemode for Clash Royale - could change the entire future of the game Idea

“DeckChallanger” - Worked on this for two months… Lets go:

Incorporates deckbuilding and poker-ish strategy thinking
But also: ability to bluff, surprise and outsmart your opponent.

Purpose: To enhance the tension before the game, and get at the same time rid of the “rock, paper, scissor”-problem. Either a CR game can look like this: Two players select without any regulations - thus, it is completely random - each one a respective deck. The only tension created, comes from the fact that the two players have no idea what deck they are facing. This often results in unfair matchups, where the winner is already decided from the first 1-2 minutes of the game.
So... if the matchups already are made in a random way:
→ why not make the <> a bigger part of the game...?

This gamemode will make everything more challenging and diverse on a level never ever seen before - and fun at the same time - and not only fun.
But a ridiculous level of fun with new and fresh mechanics, that will never seem to get old and boring.
[I think this gamemode even could awake CR from the dead]
The gamemode is that good.
And guess what? I don't care about the money! I could probably sell this idea, but no. I want to share it with the community. Because I love Clash Royale gameplay, but the peak potential of the game is so far away. This gamemode would take the CR experience from a 2/10 of its possible ”game potential”
So... let's explain this, and stop talking:

- A luck based wheel decides the two decks facing off eachother, a primary and a secondary time
- Before the wheel is spinned, both players has to select one wincon (one circle sector) each, that gets banned from the wheel in their match
- Each sector in the circle is consisting of every win condition (or perhaps another regulation that will challenge the player to build a deck: like ”5.0 or more” or ”2.5 or less” and so on (and for these special ones, the advantage is the the player gets to pick the win condition by himself, but has to compensate that by getting around the challenge of the regulation)
- Then you build your deck from an empty cardslot-interface, from the ground up.
- Every win condition has a group called ”hardcounters”. Since the player knows the opponents win con (in the case of that regulation) - he can pick a hardcounter that fits with his deck - his regulation - but also hard counters the wincon from the opponent
- If a ”neutral” wincon gets selected, like the Pekka or Mega knight, a maximum of 1 ”firsthand” win con can be added
- Also, the miner, skeleton barrel and rocket (I could have forgotten someone) has a special category as ”secondary win conditions”, and can be added to any win condition, but max 1 of them
- All of the other cards can be chosen when building the deck
If matchup is defined as ”advantage to one player” - For example [ballon - ramrider]
—> the player in disadvantage gets to pick two hardcouters, while the one in matchup advantage only get to picks one hard counter for the opposing wincon
Max 2 small spells (not tornado, including royal delivery)
Max 1 big spell (including EQ)
And ofcourse - Max one hardcounter to wincondition (if defined as equal matchup)
When you have built your decks, you lock them in. Then you have to show 1 of your cards to the opponent. You can pick by yourself what card to show the opponent. Here lots of different strategies will develop, for example: bluffs, surprises or to just outsmart your opponent into thinking you have a deck that you may not use, different strategies and of course reversed psychology. Then you get the ability to change two cards in your locked deck, but only two. But the card you show and your wincon, are locked, and cannot be changed.
Then the same thing happens to the other player.
This interchange of cards happens one time, and then a second time - showing your opponent a total of 2 free cards plus your given win con.
(The card you choose to show is automatically locked, and very much like your given win condition, can not be interchanged.)
Then the decks are finished! This adds up to the tension before the game like never before, and creates a whole new level of strategy. Instead of just saying ”of well, this is an unfair matchup. What a shame.”
There is so much potential to be captured here. Really note that.
This maybe even could bring CR back from the dead, and enhance the esport side of the game, but LIKE A SHIT TON. This not only makes the game more developed and skilled in a new way for the pros, but also gives viewers a new level of curiousness and tension as a part of every game, instead of just players picking a meta deck from some of the few viable archetypes in the current meta, and then it is pretty much rock paper scissor to see which one wins, because:
So, ultimately this makes the matchup less ”rock paper scissor”, that is Clash royales biggest problem right now. Players would have to not only need a skill to build good decks, but be prepared for anything, and create strategies for their own new deck, tailored for the opposing deck AT THE LIVE TIME as the game is played
The level of skill in E-sport with this gamemode would be on a whole other new level - that's some good entertainment, let me tell you.

- It creates a challenge for both opponents, that they need to solve with their <>
Skill 1.
+It is up to the players SKILL to first build a deck that counters it in a FAIR way (with all the rules)+
Skill 2.
++And finish the game with even more skill to create real time epic strategies in game, tailored for that specific matchup++
[I can guarantee you that this will create results, like when someone has the advantage in matchmaking defined by their wincon - but still wins a CR game because of the deckbuilding skill and real time strategy combined with quick reaction and precision gameplay.]
—> this would be a new level of CRL entertainment (but also as a Casual/Competitive mode IN the game for normal casual players)
Also, since every wincon will be inte the game, you can't get a weak card. That would not be fair. So ebarbs for example. They are too weak on ladder - well, buff them to the viable point in this particular gamemode. But jezzz. Don't screw it up SC, have a separate feed of this gamemode-balances, and survey how cards are performing. This gamemode needs to have every wincon that is on the wheel, 100% balanced.

*Sidenote* - SCROLL PAST IF NOT INTERESTED, it is not relevant to the gamemode!
(logical preposition for ebarbs when we're at it:)
Motivation: “ ebarbs could be used as a counter pushing card, that's effective on defense, and after; be used in a counter attack. One problem today is their health, they die easily. And, since they are whole 6 elixir today, it is hard to combine other cards with them, to support them while active in game (Like ice golems, ice spirit etc). Therefore, make them 5 elixir (IN ONLY THIS GAMEMODE), but set their crown tower damage to 40 - 60 % of their normal damage - since they need to be able and two-shot ranged support troops like wizards and musks, because it is one of their main interactions (They have a slow hitspeed, but when they do get their shot in, they are effective, and can quickly move on to a different target, like a giant) . This way, if an ebarb gets to you tower, it won't punish you as much, and the ebarbs can easily be killed on offence, since they have such low HP - if the opponent doesn't support them with more elixir”
I´m just using common sense here guys, don't be hard on me. But I think that would make ebards more of a card that has a place in the game, an ideal way to use them effectively, that every card should have a clear definition of: Like most other cards. Right now, ebarbs have too many things that they are good at, and way too many things they suck at. This idealized concept of them, would actually make them quite unique in the game, and add a new nuance to the possible card-choices for counterpunching tank killers. The other problem is also that they are way too rewarding when reaching the tower - but also way too undervalued when used on defence - since they die so easily, and bam: 6 elixir down the drain, and you can't support them with other cards, because of their high cost.
→ Therefore it could be tried to see what happens if they cost 5 elixir, and had reduced crown tower damage. If they are to strong, lower their HP to balance out the question of how hard it should be to kill them
If you are not using this thinking process when balancing cards already SC (cause of your history, lol XD), maybe take some inspiration: because I have a strong belief, in that [Every card in the game has a place, and can get balanced. There are no such things as: “Bad designed cards”, that just a sad excuse] - imo
*Sidenote finished*


This would basically be the peak of CR potential - if we get this gamemode in the game - or at least in CRL... imagine this, instead of 2v2. (If you have lost track, read the paragraph over the sidenote again”)
The purpose of this gamemode is to enhance the player's ability of deckbuilding, incorporated into the gameplay. The player also has to know what cards fit good with exactly every archetype. This gamemode would make for an extremely DIVERSE and always FRESH and SURPRISING gameplay, never seen the likes of in CR history. That's of course depending on the pros innovative skills… and them skills bro… they will most certainly create a good basis for this.
This is the gamemode that I think everyone wants, including the developers of Clash Royale. They have always been nagging about making a gamemode, that is more
  • diverse
  • and has deckbuilding as a bigger part of the game itself
THIS. IS. IT.
The gamemode would also be extremely, EXTREMELY entertaining to BOTH:
- watch, for example CRL, because we would get to see what cards they are picking, and see their strategy - made under pressure and small timeframes. This would add soooo much content to commentary for the casters. Extremely interesting. Pros have to be wearing soundproof headphones, we also need to check microphone-cheating way more in this case of gamemode - since the audience knows the decks that are facing off - but the players don't. They only know 3 of each others cards
- Or as a gamemode in Clash Royale, live time with random players. Imagine playing this, as a casual gamemode, or as a separate ladder with kingtower level brackets... (*orgasm*)
The ”balance-rules” of this gamemode would be :
- ”what cards are defined as hardcounters to each wincon?”
- ”What matchups are defined as; advantage - to one of the wincons facing each other?”
The cards in each group could be a subject to change, very much like the balance changes each month. It gets better and better the more we get experienced within the gamemode
TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK REDDIT! I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Let's make Drew of Seth hear this. We could be changing the way CR is played
- FOREVER!
//Cheers:)

P.S
This mode - could be a new "competetive ladder" bracket. SERIOUSLY.
(Like you just read way less than half of the total text:)
Main notes:
- Supercell needs a healthy relationship with their playerbase (They don't really have that now)
- The player should be offered a small piece - a limited, but still fair opportunity- of the beautiful game they are working on - for <>
And theeeen...
- If the players tries it, loves it, and decides - “I WANT MORE, I think the money is worth it” , that's when you as a free-to-play game developer offer the player a less limited offer, for real money - for example a pass royale with mer premium features (Still not changing the game mechanics tho, just progression, but not in pay to win way. In a “Pay to experience less grind”- way) You´ll understand more soon!
That is a healthy way to make money. You as a free to play game developer should give players the <>, and if you make a damn good job - you should automatically get more money, BUT IN A FAIR AND HONORABLE WAY
The system SC today uses in today's ladder, with pay to win walls from the gem-currency:
- That has to be the worst business model to make money on a free to play game.
That's a fact. It doesn't matter how much supercell has made from these games, they could have easily made way more with a more healthy business model.
But... there is hope! Because, with this gamemode, I would stand by the opinion to say:
- Clash Royale would not only be the BEST mobile game ever made
- But perhaps, one of the best games ever made on this planet.
THAT HOW MUCH POTENTIAL THERE IS IN THIS BEAUTIFUL GAME - in my opinion
—> but supercell doesn't see it
However - I do.
With my vision for supercell though, if I were in charge: I would incorporate this gamemode, in a <> way with the pass royale each month if they give me this kind of freedom and gameplay opportunities - and a need to grind less.
—> I would pay for that pass royale. That's how much fun I think CR is
So let me present the business model:
- FREE CHOICE: 5 free daily matches on this gamemode. You get 5 new ones every 24 hours, and if you can't play for 1 day, there is a bank that can store a maximum of 10 matches
THIS IS LIMITED - but free. You get the taste of brilliance and entertainment
- PREMIUM CHOICE: 15 battles every day, and banks that store up to 3 days of not playing - 45 battles capacity. (This would be the current passroyale)
THIS IS FOR THE ENTHUSIAST. If you have a good logistic when playing - this will be enough for anyone - for a small monthly fee (the same value as a cheap lunch in town - is CR DeckChallanger worth that to you, personally?
- UNLIMITED CHOICE: a new more expensive version of pass royale, like ”legendary pass” gives you an unlimited amount of matches.
THE HOLY GRAIL. No boundaries. Infinite fun.
BUT. IT. IS. YOUR. CHOISE.
*More in depth:*
You get the mode in lv 9. But when you start over for each season, you get to CHOOSE what kingtower leauge you wanna play in: if you are king tower 12 for example, you can't access the lv 13 league, but can choose between king lv 9 all the way to lv 12.
If you choose lv 9, you will have a better opportunity to level up most of the cards you will use in the game when building the diverse possible amount of decks. Since versatility is key, this will improve your chances to perform and reach higher. In lv 9 league, the seasonal end rewards are the lowest point in the pair of leagues, though. So you have to compensate for: FairPlay- and The size of rewards
—> BUT IT IS YOUR GOD DAMN CHOICE
Then again, if you are in kingtower lv 12, and have most of the card you still will do fine with, at lv 11 and some at lv 10 → Then maybe, it is worth the sacrifice of lowering the FairPlay to king tower league 11, but increasing the potential rewards - as you progress on the global leaderboard for your bracket.
Each season you pick what kingtower leauge you wanna bet on.
(The more wins you have, the higher you get on the GLOBAL leaderboard for your separate king tower league. If this is a trophy system or just K/D, it's up to supercell to decide, or you guys on reddit.)
I prefer the good old trophy system, and then we incorporate your highest ever reached trophy number on OLD LADDER, to define the starting place you will have in your kingtower bracket. Therefore, you will get an advantage if you are high on ladder - which is heavily dependent on spending money on the game via supercell’s current method, so that you need to, agan:
Spend money on the game - and SC gives you advantages in fair ways - which makes supercell sustainable money making company
- still because of this game mode.
This system will also not compete with ladder, since you won't be having “Your own deck”. This gamemode will hover ever be a method, to get more resources, to upgrade your cards for the normal ladder - that the current supercell-business model for making money, is in charge for.
So the higher card levels you have, the easier it gets to have more cards in higher levels - to compete in leagues with higher rewards - and again:
  • spending money on the game gives you an advantage to progression
BUT! The player WHO WANTS to play CR fair play, can still do that with a fair-cost passroyale and in lv 9 - with low rewards, but again: with fair play.
If you on the last hand thought, do completely fine with only 5 matches a day (or how many SC would evaluate that to be sustainable for them), then you don't even need the pass, but:
  • you will start way lower in your king tower league each month
  • have to push for longer ro reach the competition of your skill level
  • the rewards are crappy
  • thus is a disadvantage in ambition, energy consumption and time, but it is still
FAIR PLAY. AND FAIR LEVELS when doing the grind. The frustration being created, will be way different than the one on ladder. That feels like just pure pain ass bullying… to be real here.
If you want to do that extra work, do that good old grind, IT SHOULD BE UP TO YOU, THE PLAYER,
However:
  • If you feel like skipping that extra work is worth a pass royale to earn more gold, play more matcher every day, to upgrade more of your cards, to reach higher ladder records, get better starting place - and finally be able to progress <>
    • to compete in higher leagues for more rewards
- that´s in this business model - up for you, and ONLY for you to decide.
*next:*
My last wish or idea is to have live spectating on top 500 on each of these king tower brackets, where live matches are in a little interface, so that you also easily can find the live ones. This way:
  • You can just log in to CR, play a few games, but then if (lol, WHEN) you get frustrated
chill and watch a few pros play, get inspired - and then get in the game again with that new motivation and focus!
THIS IS WHAT CR NEEDS TO STAY ALIVE, and not in a few months, or a year,
NOW!
Supercell, spend the work on this, instead of making amazing looking new arenas every month that we then throw away and never see again...
We have plenty of arenas now! Save yourself that work, vary insead between the beautiful 15-25 arenas we now have (why not have some lower season arenas a few times a year? That would still be refreshing for the +4000 trophies players)
  • All while developing this system instead. I also think this tops the clan wars update, but if you could start working on this as the next project after the CW update, that would be amazing.
And I mean... the work that needs to be done, are just a couple of interfaces that take care of the logistical system. No new arena. No new animation with cards. No boats or whatever the huge and complex stuff that you have worked on in the new update.
THIS IS VERY SIMPLE COMPARED TO THAT —> and still... still this would be so much more:
EFFECTIVE on both
  • Grade of how healthy the relationship is with your playerbase
  • Money income, on a predictionable and regular basis each month with the increase of passroyale purchases
***
Let's leave that for now, and look at this idea I have… for the community in Clash Royale:
<>
Shoutout to LEGENDARAY! I know you are reading this, if my comment gets upvoted ;) been watching you and your creative ideas for over a year now. Been there since like 12k subs- so you kind of owe me not just this- but all of your subs, and everyone else in the world:
  • that loves Clash royale, but doesnt play it any more because it is so far off its maximum potential of being a both FAIR, COST FRIENDLY and FUN game
To Legendaray:
If you see the same potential in this gamemode as I do, please make a Concept video of it. Both explain, and literally play it with one of your friends or co-lab with other youtubers - for example KFC (would be awesome)
(This is possible, because the gamemode is so simple to develop. It is just basic logistics)
You are studying engineering, very much like I want to do (just finished high school baby, and I got into design engineering - my dream - in Sweden!) - so I know that you not only this, but do this . Damn good.
Together with my idea, innovative skills and ability to make a well thought out basic described concept - combined with your videoskills, problem solving-ability AND your youtube channel that has blown up recently...
We. Can. Change. CR. Forever.
I mean this dude. That's why I'm hyping this up...
We can not only make an awesome concept and create some excellent content for you channel:
But we can spread this to a whole other and new level than never ever possible before. (Cuz you are very smart, and have a youtube channel AND looks at reddit!! All at the same time.)
It is meant to be
Here is how you (or anyone else that feels entruiged) - can do it.
- Make a virtual luck based spinning wheel, or a physical one (that would be AWESOME) with every win condition and/or also with other types of regulations the deck should be built around (for example [5.0 or more]) - on all of the many circles sectors on the ”spin the wheel” like wheel-thingy
- Then you spin the wheel, and see where it stops *intense thrilling musicccc*
- Switch to the deck building interface with empty cardholders (the wood thing-slots), and have a small animation that locks the wincon that got chosen by the wheel, for example: ram rider
- Then the same thing happens again to the other player
- now the players vote for how long they wanna build. Tryhards will go for the lowest allowed, like 10-20 sec, but noone will be able to pick a maximum of... hmm lets say 40 sec. The middle point between the votes, decides the time both players have to build their decks
- A timer starts ticking down : 3, 2, 1, START BUILDING! *creative, intense music*
Display both players at the same time. For each player: Facecam, Mobile cam, card collection of the hardcounters you can use one of, spells, ground attackers ect. All the categories in a pedagogic way to more easily build a deck, and display at last a separate 8-slot card holder that shows the deck´s cards being inputted over time.
- The less time you have to build a deck, adds to the skill of having diverse knowledge within every win condition, thus: what cards fit ”in the current meta”. (Haha I always hear your voice there) You really have to be up to date with the cards that will fit with any wincon or archetype
- Time stops. If you do not make it in time, the remaining card slots will get a random card.
- The first player gets 10 sec to pick a card to show.
- The card is shown to the other player in 3, 2, 1, GO
- The other player (he is named player 2 from now on) gets 15 sec to change two of his cards 7 cards.
- Then player 2 gets 5 sec to decide what card to show: 3, 2, 1, GO
- player 1 gets to change 2 out of his 6 cards, since the one that he exposed earlier is ofcourse locked
- Then, player 2 again gets to show one card again, because that is more fair. (If you do not get that, think again.) Anyway - the same thing happens again, but he also has only 6 cards to choose from.
- At last, player 2 gets his last, and second chance to change two of his cards.
If anyone plays poker, you should be noting the vibes right about now;)
- and that's it! That's how you can make a fun concept video of how this game mode works, and then actually play. We don't need supercell to check if this is fun!
Us, we in the community can do that by ourselves, and then publish it on Legendarys channel, to get feedback on if this is something the game wants.
Together we can do some amazing stuff guys! Lets change Clash Royale forever, together! They can't ignore us if we do this really well. And if we really want this, then use that motivation to really get this concept video top notch Legendaray-quality.
Let's continue on the gameconcept a bit more thought, got some more ideas:
Now the match plays out much like any other, but you know 3 of the opponents cards, and you also know [that your opponent knows] 3 of your card in the deck, and you know which one you have showed (if you have a normal IQ memory)
The last thing you <> to the concept, is to add a crowd and commentators to this. Try to see how that works out. Let the casters have a prep talk about the players:
THIS IS JUST FOR <>
for example: (I'm trying to add some bad humor in to this - so that is is just like the CRL we all love)
”Hello and welcome to CRL west, spring 2020! This day we will be starting off by talking about our week top crl player, KFC, that will be kicking off the season today in just a couple of minutes.”
(KFC is a content creator known for making a fool of himself - for entertainment)
- Yes that's right [other casters name] KFC is looking real focused down there, but hey! Now he is looking at us, and he is still looking at us...? *5sec pass* now it is just weird - what are you doing down there KFC? *KFC smiled and says ”ha! Gotd you!” *But you can't hear him, only see him and his awkward gestures*
*casters*
- Ooookey... anyway! At Least KFC is looking to be having a real fun time down there! So, KFC as I was about to tell you, is known for his lethal choice of quick deck building time frames to stress out his opponents, but always tends carefully select what cards to reveal in his deck - to lure and surprise his opponent with an innovative deckbuild”
- ”that's right [other casters name], in just s few minutes we will get to see him in action”
Wheel is spinned:
”And here we go! Kicking of the first spin of the day. [wheel spins] ohhh and it is looking to be... the ram rider!”
*Fill in the commentary between with some bullcrap here etc, you get it*
Player2-wheel spin:
”The second spinn of the season starts... now! This is going to be a good one, let me tell you that [casters name]. *other caster* ” That i for sure can reassure you of, because it is looking to be the Pekka!” ”What a way to kick off the season. It will be interesting to see how this matchup turns out...”
- Yes that's right my friend, you can just see the sheer tension in Legendarys face. He knows he's up for not only a deck building challenge, but also a real-time problem solving when playing to get his ramrider around that moma Pekka. He has got to outsmart him somehow…”
The deckbuilding begins:
”Oh, looks like KFC is going the other way today, with some conservative card revealing - While Ray on the other hand is surprising us by showing his big spell!” *surprised, chocked, stunned* —>*other caster* ”Yes that's right [casters name], that not something you see happen every day”
The match begins:
”Okay! Let's go, this match is looking like a real thrilling one, and the smile on Rays face actually seems to be making KFC nervous of what's to come” *other caster* ”to be honest, I have quite frankly never ever in my career of CRL - seen a pro player look that terrified as, KFC does right now.
Lets lean back, and have a good look at this game.”
After that, the rest is just like the already existing seasons of CRL...
- But! With waaay more entertainment, and possible outcome of amazing results, when pros wins - even when getting a matchup disadvantage in the beginning by the spinning wheel…
The end:
”BUT THE PEKKA GETS TORNADO’D AWAY!! AND THE GOBLIN CAGE IS’NT IN CYCLE THIS TIME FOR KFC, AFTER RAY JUST BAITED IT OUT
  • RICH! The ram rider is going to hit the tower!
AND THE RAMRIDER BREAKS THROUGH, and Legendaray comes out with a clutch victory, sniping the win from KFC with just a couple HP - despite the matchups disadvantage Ray’ received in the beginning of the match… What a staggering prestige from Legendarays side!
  • Yes my friend! That is som top notch Clash Royale gameplay right there, and this is just the beginning of CRL West spring 2020. For weeks to come, the show you now are watching will be filled with dussions and dussions of these kinds of matches, every, single, week. (Get the CRL exclusive membership for more content, green room and so much more...)
So ultimately:
”The skill in the new mode DeckChallanger, lies not perhaps in knowing a small amount of certain decks in the current meta very well, but rather in adaption to the situation, and therefore a good pro has to be very diverse and versatile - and good at finding creative ways to surprise and outsmart his opponents in real time gameplay:
—> in order to dominante in Deckchallanger 2020”
//Cheers again!

Second and last "quick" P.S
To supercell:
Please add this as soon as possible to the game - if you decide to go for it. Start with just a launch of a <> that has no ladder. Let us taste the game mode. Let us give you guys feedback. [Just a Casual - then it will require less work for you guys to let us try it out.]
If you, SC, already here start to see a noticeable increase of pass royales being bought, put the stakes ever higher on creating a separate ladder for this mode - to create a competitive feel.
That's when the money will start to pour in.

But… not just yet. Hehe (A lot of text down here for supercell, or anyone else that is interested in business, future technology and innovation)
note this supercell:
The idea and concept of DeckChallanger, is only
one of the
many
Ideas <> for Clash Royale. However…
  • This is the only one you will get for free.
  • And - this is not even the best one, this is just the one with the most:
  • favorable effect on the game, in the ratio of:
The need of money, work and energy to go from concept to practically working - in ratio to - The effect the finished concept has on the game.
This concept has the highest ratio in that aspect amongst my other ideas and concepts for CR.
Other than this concept - I have multiple ideas and visions for how we could completely change the general view of what Clash Royale is, and what it could become in the future…
If you decide to work on this game mode, launch it, and then notice the significant increase in Pass Royale purchases not only the first month, but keeps at a constant high throughout many months - <>
Hit me up. If one of my ideas made you that much money, just imagine how much money you would make if you got all of my ideas:
  • Both the Best ones, the more Huge ones and the Smaller ones. Try imagine what is inside my head, if this idea, the DeckChallanger, made you that much money
By
Itself.
Therefore it might be smart to get my contact information right now already, if you guys decide to go for my concept gamemode.
I wouldn't be offering this to just any game. I only want to do this with Clash Royale, because this game is the only game I truly love, and have really deep knowledge in. After many years of playing with the innovative thinking process I have - I have not been able, to not, start developing ideas for the game. They have just appeared naturally.
So, if you decide to hit me up, what would I want in return?
**I tell you that in my other post**
So. That why I´m going to tease my <> top 2 ideas:
** They did not fit in this post. Go to my profile to see the other one (New account so I will only have two posts)**
Let's make a clear structure for the vision of for when new gamemodes gets added to the game, and what purpose they would be serving:
LADDER - The main mode. Play all day, choose your deck - but levels are unfair
  • You need a method to get more resources to upgrade your cards...
-
Beneath this main gamemode, there are other gamemodes to be played along side ladder, that when played - gives you resources - to upgrade the cards for the main mode: Ladder
Therefore since Ladder already is unfair - why ALWAYS make <> of the gamemodes supporting the main mode: ladder - also level dependent?
-
The list of supporting game modes:
  • Clanwars
  • Classic and Grand challenges (If we had tickets in chests, that would be nice.)
  • Special challenges
  • Global tournaments
-
My idea is to <> in game modes in this category, with the focus on Fair Play, and a Freedom to the player. The gamemode then offers a free version of its brilliance: And then it is up to the player if they want more → get a pass royale. That moral works fine with any human being that I have ever met.
This way, haters probably gonna say: “AHH, YOU ARE ONLY ADDING NEW STUFF FOR THE PAYING PLAYERS. AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A FREE TO PLAY GAME?!”
  • But you can calmly respond with the obvious argument: “So <> the gamemode that gives you 5 free daily matches, and a bank of max 10 - is not free content? Isn't that <> that gets added to the game, in the supporting category to ladder - the main mode - to get more resources - to upgrade your cards?
Think about that. Anyway:
The category could look like this, If my ideas were added:
  • DeckChalllanger, bracket king tower level dependent seasonal leagues
  • A new Clan Wars system (This should still be completely free tho, only new modes get the new business model I am describing)
  • [Idea 3]
  • [Idea 4]
  • [Idea 5]
  • …..
And so on. (And don't forget my tease for the ESPORT side of Clash Royale…) (other post)
That is the direction I would want to be taking this game. Clash Royale has a business model that is out of date in the free to play gaming-world, today.
  • But it is not too late. Clash Royale is a beautiful game with huge potential, now after 4 in game years of development - A FRICKIN MASTERPIECE - and is more than possible to completely turn around and generate huge streams of income again/even more than before
All you need. Are the right ideas. Not the bad ones, not the average ones, not even the good ones:
  • But the necessary ones.
*
*
Remember one thing from this. This crazy, but passionate guy <> completely reimagine the definition of what Clash Royale is and its status from all over the world, and throughout all gaming-industries. The potential you can't see - I not only see, but know is there. You could also at the same time get a stake in the potential future world leading company of autonomy, delivering spherical wheels to the whole GLOBAL mobility market, in monopoly (Only we have the new technology, we develop it highly confidentially) for the first few years:
  • just by hitting me up.
Only remember that when you are on the cusp of ignoring this offer. That's all I ask for, along with you testing this gamemode out with your developers:
  • For the sake of everyone out there in our world: that absolutely loves Clash Royale.
And the gamemode… You're gonna absolutely love it.

Also: Watch this advertisement from Supercell, and think about my tease for the future of CRL esport
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Jdp_dkduJc
(You will look at it - from a whole new perspective…)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBRWUwm0_gY
And finish things off with this one above.
  • Now you get the idea, so take that imagination, and look at this CRL 2020 spring first episode. Fast forward the first 5 minutes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tkqWCto7yg
Do you guys see how polished CRL has become now? How it feels, like <>? (Despite the corona pandemic that took away the studio the casters are in, and the OGN arena. The feel of CRL is there, ands it’s real)
Then imagine that (The beautiful 3D environment graphics and special effects) with the [number 1 and number 2] problems solved (that I presented earlier), and combine that version of how CR is played (for example DeckChallanger) - with the excellent format CRL now has developed, to be a real established esport that feels totally REAL, although it is all virtual.
It is all about perspective. To open your eyes. To start dreaming.

Bye

Win to nil betting is a type of football betting that involves simultaneously placing two bets – a bet that a team will win, known as a back bet, and a bet that the other team will fail to score a goal in a match. To Win To Nil Example: Most choose the Win To Nil market in order to enhance odds, so let’s take an example of a game between Manchester United and Leicester. As the home team, Manchester United are priced at 4/7 to win the game, not particularly profitable odds. To Win To Nil, United’s odds are increased to 13/10, making it a much better If they are likely to win to nil, we have 9 possible scorelines: 1-0, 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, 5-0, 6-0, 7-0, 8-0, and 9-0. This international weekend offers us plenty of examples. Let’s start with two examples from this evening’s matches. The first match kicks off at 7.00 p.m. this evening and involves Ukraine v San Marino. Ukraine are 1.01 to win Add Goals – Win to Nil or Win & BTTS Betting. There are two different ways of doing this, and it all depends on how you envisage the game going. The first way is to back your team to win to nil bet, instead of backing them to simply win the game. This means that not only do they need to win, but they also need to keep a clean sheet. Win to Nil is the same as win and BTTS no, but you seem to get better odds as its less sexy than win and BTTS which is a more popular bet but very tricky to pick in our opinion. Best Win to nil betting site guide. Below is our top 3 bookmakers for the win to nil market and our reasons and justifications for choosing them.
