Thanatos of Fire & Ice Summoned[]

Thanatos of Fire and Ice says: "Chaos will reign!"

Thanatos of Fire & Ice Slain[]

A massive dragon rises from the horizon. However, this is no ordinary dragon. The dragon seems to be half comprised of flames and the other half encased in a thick frost armor. Never have you seen such a terrible looking monster.

Thanatos: "I HAVE BEEN REBORN INTO THIS WORLD!!!!! Far too long have the dragonkin been under the reign of mortal man. As the avatar incarnate of dragonkin, I will see that my brethren take their rightful place as the rulers of the planes."

The armies are quickly deployed to battle the formidable beast. Catapults, ballistas, and every weapon at your disposal is sent to combat Thanatos. The battle wages on for many moons and it seems you are hurting the monster. However, it seems that no matter what you do, you cannot defeat the monster. It is like the monster cannot be completely harmed. Is it because the monster is comprised of different elements?

As the battle wages on, it seems as if it will not end and as your men fall, you will have less of a chance at victory. The long nights of as the commander of the battlefield has made you weary and day's battle has exhausted you. You decide to leave your army to the second-in-command and retire to your tent for the night.

As you fall into a deep slumber, your dreams seem more vivid than usual. You see yourself yet you look much different. Your skin seems cold and taut as if half-dead. You speak out to yourself and he responds.

"Who are you stranger? I seem to know you quite well but yet I cannot place you from my memory."

"I ask the same of you. What brings you to my dreams."

"I am engaged in a terrible fight against the dragon incarnate, Thanatos. Yet I cannot defeat him no matter what I do."

"Then you and I are involved in the same predicament and it must be the will of the gods to bring us upon this meeting."

"It seems that I cannot hurt the monster fully from my end and I assume you have the same problem. Then we must coordinate our attacks."

"So be it."

You finish your strategy discussion with your counterpart.

"We shall part ways now but I have a feeling I will see you again soon."

"Godspeed brother."

You awake from your dream and quickly rush onto the battlefield. You instruct your men that at the peak of the moon's wane, to concentrate all attacks at Thanatos of the Fire. You are hoping that your counterpart will react to the same signal and have his men attack as well. This will be your only chance.

Your men strike at your signal! Then you can see a veiled glimpse of soldiers attacking Thanatos of the Ice. You see your counterpart atop the mountain directing the soldiers. Thanatos reels in pain and starts to de-materialize from your sight.

Thanatos: The dragonkin will rise again!

You are thankful the battle is over but your mind wanders back to your counterpart....
