Ok, right now, I am far enough. No matter what I will do, the worst that will happen is me destroying a nice little forest. Not that big of a problem. So, what can I do to create that purple sun, because, it seems like a pretty good spell? A moving blackhole, what can bring more destruction than that. I was really aiming too low, just wanting a small meteor to destroy a small group. While Oslo was looking big, something capable of annihilating armies without a single problem. Except one, my imagination.
Ok, I see a representation of a black hole, I mean, the one from Earth. I have no idea if all those scientists are right, but I really hope they are. I am betting myself on that, so please, don't be wrong. So for me, that phenomena is looking like a vortex, not even letting light escape its grip. But, I heard a theory that this attraction was because of the weight of the black hole. So, in this case, I have to think about something incredibly heavy as well? Think about your physics classes, did I ever hear a description of a black hole? I don't think so, and on the book, it's like a small note, with barely three sentences.
The truth is, I have no idea how this is working. So let's forget all the theories, and proofs from Earth, let's just try what Oslo said. A purple sun, so a purple little star, not that big, but still large enough to affect a lot of objects. So let's see, a sphere of 5 meters in height? Sounds good, sounds big but not that big. Then, it floats, of course, otherwise, it will just fall to the ground and dig its way toward the center of this planet. I don't want that. A purple sphere, grabbing and attracting everything around it. And floating and moving away, while doing the previous action.
As for the thing that touched the sun? Destroyed? Melted? Oslo?
(Hey, I just heard of that strong spell and the history behind it. I have never seen it, just heard the description and thinks that's what you currently need. As for the deadliness of that spell, I can assure you that nothing that was in contact with the purple sun survived. That's what I heard, as to whether the objects are destroyed or broken, I have no idea. The god that told me that only said that a trail of destruction could be seen behind the creation of Xerces.)
So, we will think about, everything in contact is slowly melted. Since I am quite good with acid, I can potentially do that, otherwise, I will not be able to destroy the cannons and sniper rifles. A big brainstorming now. Purple sphere, moving and floating at one meter from the ground, attracting everything a huge area, and melting everything in contact of the sun. That's good enough?
(Yes, I have no objection. Oh, wait, just one. Precise that the spell has a huge duration. You want it to last for thirty seconds or something like that. It won't be instantly dispelled; you want it to last.)
Right, you are totally right. I am certain that the System would have just make it appears then disappears the next second. Ok, I have everything, now think again. Purple sphere, float, move, grab everything, destroy everything, last for thirty seconds. Sphere, float, grab, destroy, long duration.
"Congratulation to the user for creating a new spell. Please say its name."
Great, it worked, I have no issue with my mana. That was potentially the scary part, but now, I am fine. What should I call it, I can use the name of his creator, I don't even know if it is the same spell. But I did shape it as a purple sun too. Or, more exactly, a purple sphere, not necessarily a sun. What is shaped like a sphere too? Hmmmm.
"System acknowledges the choice of the user, the spell: [Purple Moon] has been created."
(It is really low, what you just did. Seriously, you replace sun by the moon, and expect me to not say anything about that?)
Actually, yes. Because even me think it is mediocre. But I had no other name in my mind, the only other sphere I could find is a moon. And, it is supposed to be deadly, so moon, death, shadows?
(No, I won't follow you on that thing. At least the sun was logical, you have something that can melt metal, because of its high temperature. But what does the moon do? Nothing? Besides influencing the seas and oceans, but even that, we, as gods, can deal with that. So it doesn't make any sense.)
Oh, you can remove the impact of the moon on the sea? Well, you can do a lot of things, like creating a perfect summer for all eternity, I guess making the seas peaceful is not that hard. But let's forget about the bad naming, okay? Now, let me see what is the power of my [Purple Moon]!!!
RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE
BLOODY HELL! RUN AWAY! I immediately begin to run away, not expecting the spell that I cast 30 meters away from me to still attract me. Even at that distance, I still felt the power of my newly created purple moon. As for the trees around it? Nearly all can be seen stuck on the purple sphere, and slowly be destroyed. Only the strongest and oldest trees, that have deep roots are resisting, but I can see more and more fail to do so.
Now, the spell is continuously floating forward, a little slow for his size. I mean, he should approach the 30 km/h, that's a good speed for something that has the size of a human. But it is three times that size, so, I hoped that it was a little bit faster. Well, I can't have everything. Its attraction is powerful enough to make me forget about the slow speed. And I will use it against static targets or in a situation when the enemy won't be able to avoid it.
I and Oslo can see the trail of destroyed trees on its way, and at that point, we begin to count. To see for how long the spell is active. When the purple moon finally disappears, dozens of trees fall to the ground, with more than half partially melted. I counted to 35, while Oslo only had 32. I guess he is better at that than me, and I have to confess that I was a little too excited. But the spell has a huge duration, and with its speed, it can travel for …. Nearly 30 km/h, thirty-two seconds, I multiply and it gives me … nearly 250 meters. Didn't you say that the distance of the purple sun was bigger?
(Yes, but you created a moon if I have to remind you. And, I think that a sun is better than a moon, you should have checked for that before doing this.)
Ok, so that means, I will have to hide underground and cast it right in front of Ronta. That's really not what I hoped for. I wanted something that could provoke chaos from far away.
(And if you try to cast it from far away?)
That's true, I only tried it to see the impact, but we still don't know the range of the spell. Maybe I can truly cast it from a kilometer, and that way, it will still work as we planned. But I have to wait to try that. I don't have enough mana; this spell is really costly. I have 6/1750 MP, if I only had just one level missing, I couldn't have cast it. And in the meantime, how is my army doing?
(We lost thirty-three ghouls, but still no lich. The good number of spirits allow me to prevent that, but they are getting more and more ambitious. It looks like they care even less about their death squads than you about your ghouls. And, in the numbers department, we are not winning in the short term. Either, you will have to retreat after casting your purple moon, or the fight will really be hard.)
No, we can't escape anymore, especially not after we showed them how dangerous we are. The truth is, besides potentially the dwarves, we have no allies in that war. So, they will hunt us to the end of the world if they have to. We need to show them how strong we are first, by destroying and killing millions of ratmen. Then, we will be able to escape, when they are fearing me and my undead. And my newly created spell.
For another 8 hours, I waited in the destroyed forest. After that, I float in direction of my army, and when I think it is far enough, I turn to face the forest once again. That way, I will have a clear distance and will cast the spell where I want. I try to cast it on one of the closest trees, at a little less than a kilometer. I activate my [Purple Moon], and, seeing the purple sphere appears right in front of the tree, I think that it's enough. I can truly attack Ronta this time.
