Inside 9/11: The Culprits behind the scenes

All of us Americans know what today is. The 10th anniversary since the calamity of the attack on the twin towers on 9/11. The tragic and horrific event played a significant role in our history and made a great impact on those who were affected by it. Even those who were fortunate enough not to have lost anyone because of it were impacted by it, because they had been so shocked and scared because of what had happened. But I'm about to tell you something about 9/11 that not everyone may know about what happened on that fateful day. There was another group behind the attacks of 9/11. I'm not talking about the Islamic Jihadist Terrorists, Saddam Hussein, or even Bin Laden. Can you guess who? I'll give you some hints. Here are some photos of them leaving the scene shortly after the crashes:

Got any guesses as to who or what they could be? Demons. Yup, although you may or may not know it or want to admit it, demons did play a role in this. How? Well what may not be hard to believe is that the terrorists who crashed the planes into the towers and the pentagon were demon-possessed. Don't believe me? Well you don't have to take my word for it, you can see the demonic entites appearing in the smoke. And they didnt appear just once, but multiple times. These are only a few photos of the demonic shapes that appeared. And you may be thinking that these are photoshopped, but I guarantee that if you'll go back and watch the videos, you will see these shapes appear. And I'm sure there are 9/11 videos out there on the web by the millions. Well, I will continue to pray that God will bless those who were impacted and lost loved ones in the attacks of that day and until next time, see you in the Spiral.

The Necromaniac Chapter 6 "Mythic Marauder" Part 7

"Mythic Marauder" Part 7

I had to know it was coming. That Kiroshiza would finally decide to show up at some point. Now I can find out the whole point of why he had brought me here in the first place. "So you finally decided to show up," I said in response, "So let's get down to it. Why did you drag me here and for what was the point of this whole thing anyway? I know you were behind the attack in the commons and we figured out that it was Nemean Lion that you summoned and brought to Wizard City. Actually, now that I think of it, why do you bother doing these things anyway? Like intruding on Sorceria or waking the Frost Giant on Frostus and now here on Mythania. What do you hope to accomplish by doing all this? What kind of ultimate goal are you trying to reach here? Because all of this seems pointless!"

Kiroshiza then said something I didn't expect, "You're exactly right. It does seem pointless. But that's exactly what I wanted you to think. You know why I am doing all of these menial tasks? The answer is simple. Everything I've done so far has simply served as distractions. I've just been playing games with you this whole time just to keep you busy."

"Distractions? From what? Why were you trying to keep me occupied?"

"The answer to that you may find in due course. That is, if you're going to survive what I am about to use against you." He snapped his fingers and then there was the sound of something large approaching. And walking out and appearing at his side was the Nemean Lion. "I'd love to stick around and see how this turns out, but I have things to do and big events to prepare for that are soon to transpire." He walked around the Nemean Lion, opened up a portal to a familiar place, and disappeared into it. The portal closed up, leaving just me, Sestiva, and the Nemean Lion.

What we needed to do next was clear. Defeat the Nemean Lion and chase after Kiroshiza. The Nemean Lion roared, issuing its challenge to me and Sestiva. "According to the myths, the Nemean Lion was invincible. The only known way of killing this beast is to strangle it to death," I told Sestiva.

"But," Sestiva began saying, "Neither of us is strong enough to strangle something like the Nemean Lion."

She had a point, considering the creature was almost 8 feet tall. "Precisely. But we may be able to summon something with enough strength to do it."

"Like what?"

"You'll see, but first I need you to do me a favor," I pointed over to where the shadow of the Colosseum loomed, "If you can, I need to you lure the creature into the shade over there. If you can do that, then I can summon what we need to take this thing down."

"Okay, just hurry because I can't distract it forever without it trying to kill me." She took off towards the shade and the creature began sprinting after her. It was faster than I had expected. I followed behind the creature. I began speaking the words of power as I began the ritual to summon what I was about to use to accomplish this task.

Sestiva got into the shade and lured it far enough under the shade. Once this had been done, I threw a rock at the beast to redirect its attention. Then it turned around and was immediately thrown to the ground by a strong force. The Nemean Lion began its struggle with the Vampire. Vampires are very strong and if anything was going to be able to strangle this creature, it could only be done by Vampiristic strength. Vampires evaporate when they are in contact with direct sunlight, which is why I had Sestiva move it into the shade. The two forces went back and forth, trying to get the upper hand. In the end, the better strength went to the bloodsucker. It didn't kill the mythical creature, it just wore it out and made it slip into unconciousness.

The Vampire was sent away and we were left to celebrate our moment of triumph. But that moment wouldnt last. We remembered what we had to do and ran to look for the spiral chamber. We found the long cobblestone path and followed it a pretty long distance until we could see the hole where the chamber was dug into the grass. We walked to it and went into the chamber, where we found the spiral door. I dug in my pocket until I pulled out the key to Wizard City. I turned the key in the lock and opened the door and entered Wizard City. We quickly ran back to Ambrose's office to report what had happened (excluding the part about Kiroshiza being a demon). After we finished our meeting with Ambrose, we hurried out to get to earth. I opened a portal and we walked through and entered back on earth. The first 2 things that welcomed me when I walked out the other end of that portal was black clouds that hung in the sky and a sense of extreme panic in the atmosphere...

Busy, Busy, Busy

You may notice (for those of you who still actually look at my blog) that I've been posting less and less often. Well ever since school started up at Athens Bible School, I've been worked to death for the past 4 weeks. I've been up to my eyeballs in homework and I've had to stay up late on some nights. I haven't gotten to write much for the Necromaniac either, since my brain's been occupied by homework and school crap. Well hopefully I'll get to be posting more soon. Until next time, see you in the spiral!

The Necromaniac Chapter 6 "Mythic Marauder" Part 6

"Mythic Marauder" Part 6

Now I can see why most didn't survive the challenges in the Colosseum. Because everything in the colosseum was a killing machine. Now the question was if I was gonna be able to outrun a bloodthirsty Orthrus while having a huge weight tied to my back. If I could get to my flag first, the Orthrus probably would no longer be allowed to chase after me. And besides, it will probably not consider going after me first. It will probably choose going after the easy kill first, which my guess would be the Humongofrog, because it's so big and slow. Well that and it's probably got tons of fat and blubber.

I kept on moving as fast as I could, dodging the obstacles and hurdles layed out before me. The Orthrus barreled forward and leaped into the air and - just as I had predicted - attacked the Humongofrog first. The two creatures tumbled forward and began bouncing across the Colosseum, smashing obstacles as the Humongofrog's fat, bouncy, body made each bounce. The struggle drove the humongofrog off course and began bouncing away to another end of the stadium. They even squashed a few of the competitors. They didn't crush Sestiva though, thankfully.

After avoiding the last obstacle, I reached down and yanked my flag, pulling it from the Colosseum ground. A Cyclops soldier had been sent to release the weight off my back. The rope tied around me was cut off and the weight dropped to the ground with a loud thud. The other competitors reached the end of their course and pulled out their flags. Only Me, Sestiva, the Minotaur, and one of the Bloodbats had made it through the course. 2 of the Bloodbats had been killed by the Humongofrog's crushing weight and the Orthrus had eventually killed the Humongofrog. Sadly though, Brutus was also crushed by the Humongofrog. He hadn't seen it coming and was blindsided.

The victims of the challenge were dragged off the field and the competitors left were congratulated. We were given a 10 minute period of rest before the next challenge. Those 10 minutes felt more like 10 seconds. The next challenge was earth-shaking. Literally. Cracks would form in the ground and chase after us, causing fissures to open up. We'd have to keep dodging them until one of the challengers fell in a fissure. Since the bloodbat could fly, it would be way too easy for it so its wings were tied, forcing it to have to walk on its two dangly legs.

And I bet you can guess who the first challenger to fall was. You guessed it, it was the bloodbat. Without their wings, bloodbats can barely even keep balance. It fell on its side clumsily after the first few seconds of running. The crack reached it and the fissure swallowed it up easily. I could almost hear the sound of cracking blood bat bones as the fissure closed on it.

The final challege was a magic duel to the death. The last 3 remaining competitors were me, Sestiva, and the Minotaur. All 3 of us had to fight to the death. Well, actually it was me and Sestiva vs. the Minotaur since me and Sestiva were kind of put together. Thank God I didn't have to kill Sestiva, I could never bring myself to do it or even hurt her. We each got our spells ready and entered the battle circle. Me and Sestiva both had around 3,000 health, but the Minotaur was tough with a whopping 30,000 health. It was definitely gonna be a long battle. And long it was.

We each started by stacking boosts, powering up for a good hit. I used the first attack and summoned Skelly, and he ended up taking off about 4,000 health. Then the Minotaur attacked Sestiva with an Orthrus, which did about 1,500 damage, since Sestiva had only put up 1 tower shield instead of 2. I used a Sacrifice to help Sestiva gain some of her health back. She gained back the rest of it by summoning a Wraith, which ended up being a critical hit and dealt around 5,000 damage. The Minotaur then summoned a Satyr to heal itself but Sestiva had put an infection spell on him which was combined with my Doom and Gloom aura put around the field to reduce his healing spell to naught. After what seemed like hours of battling, I finally dealt the final blow and brought down the Minotaur.

We were crowned the winners and our names were engraved with the list of other names of those who had survived the Colosseum. We were dismissed and we began walking out. "Where do you think you're going?", said Kiroshiza in a cold tone...

The Necromaniac Chapter 6 "Mythic Marauder" Part 5

"Mythic Marauder" Part 5

We spent the rest of the day training and exercising in our cells preparing for the Colosseum competitions. We did manage to make a couple dumbells and weights to lift and me and Sestiva helped each other with some other exercises. Normally I hate exercising but tomorrow I'm gonna be fighting for my life so I might as well be as well-prepared as possible. We were pretty tired by the time night fell and we got to catch some z's.

The next day, the Cyclops guards shouted and woke us all up. All of the cell doors opened and we were lead to a room. I took a look around and saw different myth creatures as our competition. I saw 3 bloodbats in a group dressed like gangsters, a Minotaur with a scar across his face, and a Humongofrog wearing shades. I know, a strange and suspicious group of characters. Can't believe these guys are our competition.

After a small wait, the cyclops guards led us out to the Colosseum. We walked though a tunnel and I began to see light at the end of it. We kept walking until we reached the light and we entered into the Colosseum. The Colosseum looked like a real Roman colossuem. The myth creatures in the crowds were all wearing togas for some reason. And there was a special box in the stands specially reserved for Anguise herself.

We all stepped onto the grassy field. I could see blood stains on the grass from previous events. The crowds started cheering seeing us here. But I don't think they were cheering for us, they were cheering to watch our blood shed. Then Anguise stood out of her chair and raised her arms to quiet down the crowd. Within seconds, the Colosseum went silent.

Anguise began to announce loud enough so that her voice echoed throughout the whole colosseum, "The moment you have been waiting for is finally here! The troublemakers of this land are here and are at the mercy of the Colosseum! Who will survive and who will not? Well now you're about to find out! So let the challenges begin!!!" And the crowd began to cheer. "Bring on the first challenge!"

For the first challenge, Cyclops soldiers began lining us up side by side and layed some obstacles in front of us such as hurdles, rocks, and spikes. They then went and grabbed large mallets from Cyclop hammers and tied it to our backs. I guess this was part of the challenge.

"And now," Anguise began to announce once again, "For the mallet head chase! Let me explain the rules. Each challenger has an isle of obstacles laid out before them. They have to clear these obstacles with the mallet head tied to their back and get the royal blue flag at the end of their isle. The challengers will have a 10 second head start until the chase begins!"

I had no idea who or what would be chasing us but I had a feeling I was about to find out soon and that I wasn't gonna like it. One of the Cyclops guards told us to get ready to start. I got down in a crouched position, ready to start running. The Cyclops guard then blew a horn to give the go signal and the mallet head chase was on.

This was even harder than I thought it would be. Not only is the weight on my back slowing down my speed, but it's also make it harder to jump over the obstacles. I nearly tripped over a rock and almost didn't make it all the way across a patch of spikes. Then the horn was blown to show 10 seconds had passed and that whatever was chasing us was going to be released. There were some gates near where we had started and they blew wide open and coming out of the gates... was an Orthrus....

The Necromaniac Chapter 6 "Mythic Marauder" Part 4

"Mythic Marauder" Part 4

The worst that could've happened at the time had just came true. Kiroshiza was behind this. It's because of him that I went to Mythania. But why would he want me here? What could his nasty little plot for me be this time? I guess I'll figure this all out in due time. I showed the little note to Sestiva and she agreed that kiroshiza was definitely behind the scenes somewhere.

I decided to go to the front of my cell and look around to see if there was anyone else nearby. I looked at the cell across from us and I saw a troll in it sitting in a corner. Perhaps he could help.

"Psst," I whispered to the troll, "You over there. Could you perhaps help? I was wondering if you knew anything about the tests in the Colosseum? Name's Timothy and my friend behind me is Sestiva."

The troll lifted his (or at least I sure hope that he's a he) head and looked toward me. For a moment he observed me and then he started pulling himself up and lumbered over to the front of his cell. ".... Name's Brutus," he began in a bellowing, troll-like voice, "The Colosseum is usually either a sentence for a crime or it is sentenced to foreigners who are trespassing. And just by looking at ya, i can tell you aren't from around here and the second reason is probably your case. I am here because I was wrongly accused. You see, my twin brother is a notorius criminal in Mythania. He is known for usually beating some citizens almost to the point of death and then takes all of what possessions he can carry. He usually carries a spiked club he uses for his beatings. But then a few days ago, he went to go plunder a store and I saw him going in so I decided to run in after him and try to stop him. When I got in there, I saw he had already grabbed the storekeeper and started beating him. I then leaped into action a delivered an attack from behind. He wasn't expecting it and I was able to catch him off guard and knock him away from the storekeeper. We then fought each other for a while. I thought I had him and then he did something I didn't expect. He threw his spiked club at me and I caught it by the handle. But once I had caught it, he then ran out of the store and jumped out an open window. Immediately after he had escaped, the cyclops patrol showed up and seeing the club in my hands, they automatically assumed I was my brother. They arrested me and I was given an unfair trial. I barely had a chance to even defend myself. I was sentenced to the Colosseum and have been in here ever since. Tomorrow is when we all will start competing in the colosseum."

Wow, he's certainly been through a lot. I looked to see that while Brutus had been speaking, Sestiva had gotten up and stood beside me to listen to Brutus. I felt bad for Brutus. I knew the feeling of what it was like to be accused of something you know you didn't do and having people turning against you because of it. "I know how you feel, so I've decided that we'll help you out. We'll team up in the Colosseum and overcome the tests to prove your innocence and to get me and Sestiva out of here", I said. I also explained to him what had happened in Wizard City and why we were here.

"I see," he began, "The Nemean Lion is so rarely seen it has been thought to be just lore now. But it is very powerful too and whoever has been controlling it is even more powerful, if that's possible. The Nemean Lion could probably overpower Queen Anguise herself. That's how dangerous it is. And it's important you get out of here too."

"Agreed. So we'll team up and work our way out of the Colosseum."

We both reached as far as we could through the bars and across the hall and we manage to shake hands...

The Necromaniac Chapter 6 "Mythic Marauder" Part 3

"Mythic Marauder" Part 3

In case you don't know what blacking out feels like, I'll try my best to describe it to you. For one, it's not fun. At first, you think you're dead. But it all started coming back once I regained conciousness. I didn't feel the impact of getting knocked out, I only just saw something about to hit me before I blacked out. Anyways, so when I woke up I began to become aware of my surroundings. I was in a cell. And by cell I mean like a prison cell. I've been captured. I looked around to see Sestiva laying on a bed. I went over and starting shaking her, quietly whispering her name. After a few attempts, I saw her eyes start to flicker open. "...Timothy?", she said faintly.

I heard feet shuffling behind me from outside the cell. Two Cyclopses wearing centurion helmets were standing on the other side of the bars, seeing us awake. "The prisoners have awakened," one of the cyclopses said to the other, "They shall be taken to the Queen."

"The Queen?", I ask, getting a bad feeling about this 'Queen'.

"No questions, just come with us," the other Cyclops guard persisted. They unlocked the cell, opened it and pushed us out and led us down a hall. At the end of the hall, there was a door. The cyclops motioned for me to open the door. I opened the door and we entered what appeared to be a throne room. Sitting on the throne seemed to be a woman, but I found out that she was no woman once she got off her throne. She was a Medusa. But me and Sestiva haven't been turned to stone yet, and we've both already looked into her eyes. But why?

She loomed over us and began speaking, "I am Queen Anguise, and the only reason you two aren't turned to stone right now is because I can control my stone glare. And in case you're wondering, I am the one who knocked you out. It was my serpent tail that made you black out."

That explains it then.

"So tell me, it's obvious that you're not from around here, so who are you and what are you doing in Mythania?"

"I am Timothy Lighttalon and this is my companion, Sestiva Shadowbreeze," I said, introducing myself and gesturing to Sestiva, "Our land was attacked by a creature from Mythania. One of our people was killed during the attack and we've come to seek out the creature. We also believe that someone had brought the creature into our world and then sent it back here through a portal." It was pretty much the whole reason why we are here, so I didn't know how else to put it.

Anguise didn't say anything for a moment, almost as if she was processing what she had just heard. Then she started speaking again, "Well, regardless of why you're here, trespassing is considered an offense in this world. All trespassers must prove their worth in the Colosseum. There, you will be put through trials and you will be pitted against powerful opponents. If you prove your worth and survive in the Colosseum, you will be allowed to stay in Mythania for as long as you need. If you do not survive, however, then your last days will have been spent here. I must warn you that most competitors do not survive in the Colosseum and make it out alive. The trials are gruesome and the opponents are fierce and merciless. Best of luck. I will be watching as will many of the citizens here in Mythania. Now, escort them into the competitors' cells!"

The guards began pushing us out of the throne room and down the hall again. This time, we were lead to another door and a hall with some different set of cells. These cells looked a little more hospitable than the ones we were in before, so that was good. We were lead to the 5th cell on the left and me and Sesitva were pushed into the cell and the door was locked behind us. We walked over to our bed and sat on it. I looked around the room to get used to what it looked like. Then I noticed something on the ground. A folded up piece of paper. I walked over, picked it up, and unfolded it. The paper held these words...

"Welcome to Mythania, Lighttalon.
                               - K.S."
