Previously: The sect member (assumed PC) smelled trouble and regretted his involvement with whatever bad business the ritual was. He made his attempt at escape, but his own efforts would not cut it. Unexpectedly, but thankfully, someone appeared just in the nick of time to collect our unfortunate main character from trouble!
This theme: After the series of hectic events, our new assumed ally leads us to a safe place to discuss the situation. For a moment we are safe from danger, and it looks like this place is the place to come to to recuperate - this is a Safe Haven. Think about the unexpected savior, and whether you want to consider the thematic of said character while working on this theme.
Here is the full quotation from Obsession_Dragon regarding the last theme:
The surviving sect member rushed towards the dungeons door as the screams of his companions echoed throughout the halls. His heart raced as he looked back, only to catch a glimpse of the eerie purple mist which swept towards him flooding the previously vacant dungeon growing steadily closer!
The earth began to shake violently as rubble started falling from the ceiling as he returned his gaze forward he could see light pouring through the entranceway while he grew closer to his escape a silhouette suddenly stood within the entranceway shouting,” Quickly, there is no time!” As the surviving sect member scrambled to exit the dungeon…
The purple mist began pouring out taking on large vine like limbs which flailed about violently, striking the ground in attempts to smite the survivor. The surviving sect member struggled to adjust to the light as he rubbed his eyes. Upon his attempts his vision readjusted only to be met by the purple mist vine which lashed towards him. The sect member tried to move but was struck with a glancing blow knocking him off his footing as he stumbled back and onto the ground.
In that moment the survivor looked to the caverns entrance and could see the eyes of the creature approaching the exit. Quickly averting his gaze to his saviour shouting,” It has to be stopped …don’t let it escape!’ The mysterious figure began preparing quick hand gestures as he attempted to avoid the chaotic strikes of the mist which spawned countless vine limbs, which relentlessly pummelled the ground. The sect member watched powerlessly as his saviour took form, a tall male in white robes with gilded stripes. With a long flowing cape matching with the robes designs.
The mysterious figure could see the eyes of the beast approaching as his hands shuffled hastily performing the sealing ritual. The mysterious figure began casting the sealing as particles of frost gathered into ice blasting the cavern entrance. The beast growled intimidatingly as the purple mist resisted the sealing magic! The mist vines snapped wildly like whips cleaving nearby boulders as the mysterious figure masterfully perceived their movements ducking and dodging its strikes whilst continuing his frigid sealing barrage! The eerie purple mist began reeling back as it became overwhelmed by the mysterious figures might…the beast roared angrily as only its eyes could be seen slowly drifting back into the darkness of the dungeon along with the mist as the sealing ritual had become complete.
The mysterious figure extended his hand and helped up the surviving sect member and asked inquisitively, “ what happened in there, and what was that…thing?” The sect member explained what had happened to the best of his recollection still being on edge of what had transpired moments ago. The mysterious figure nodded in understanding and followed up by saying,” I don’t think I fully understand and I don’t know if my sealing will hold it forever. I think it is best if we leave this place. You will be safe with me. The sun is setting we should make haste!"
The two companions set out on their journey! So many unanswered questions…where will they go? What dangers lie ahead? Will the sealing standfast? Why didn’t they exchange names? Why vines not tentacles? TO BE CONTINUED…
