Re: The (Nearly) Final Hour

[18:29] Scene: As Byron starts to lift the artifact it seems quite sturdy, but as soon as it draws to the edge of the pillar it crumbles to dust just like the coin did, the whole pillar winking out as soon as it does. Fleurdemort's voice echoes out from the center once again "Shub'Niggurath! Unleash...

Re: The (Nearly) Final Hour

[18:01] Scene: As the first altar shuts down a massive rumbling begins, the ground in the area feeling like it's about to tear open, then suddenly Fleurdemort's voice screams out from inside the barrier "YOU WOULDN'T DARE!" and the area goes still again.
