I'm glad Irel survived. It was kind of sad seeing how many of Shomei's devils fell, although I suppose the world is safer for it. I presume they are permanently gone, not merely returned to prior infinity?
Eadric's death- I don't remember a previous one, but nor do I recall succor and wrath. Can anyone help me out? (Maybe it is time for me to reread the story...!)

When they were fighting the evil cabal. Visuit the demi-goddess IIRC.
Shvar Choryati encroched. Now it phased nearby in contempt of the Quiescence of the Spheres, first here and then there, slaying hundreds each time it appeared; half at random, but always closer, as if some instinct drew it obliquely inwards.
Nwm stilled his thought and considered his options. He observed its pattern, and pondered.
"You will not escape it," Nwm spoke to the Sela. "No magic can speed you fast enough now; all has been stilled. It hungers for you, albeit circuitously; it is does not perceive the route to you in linear fashion. Many are dying as it seeks you; we may never recover them. It will eat everything near you. Will you trust me and do as I say?" Nwm asked.
"Yes," Tramst replied. Even in the darkness, Nwm knew that his expression was open.
Nwm reached out and felt the Sela's helm, and placed a hand on either side.
"Invoke her," the Preceptor said.
"Nehael," Tramst whispered. A supplication.
"Rest until the morning. I will wake you at sunrise." With a strong twist, Nwm snapped the Sela's neck.
His death passed unnoticed by all except the Darkness.
Become an enormous hunting cat, Nwm bounded north and west. Two minutes later, beyond the range of Prahar's invocation, he assumed the form of a great eagle, and powered his way away, in search of a likely refuge.
Meanwhile, the void turned its attention to the brightest remaining source of light.
Bad couple of pages for Eadric.With three mighty strokes, Visuit dropped the Ahma like a stone, whirled her blade over her head, and clove into Ortwine, driving her backwards in a daze. With a back-handed swipe she slew Tahl the Incorruptible – who was moving to revivify Eadric – as an afterthought. Mostin had resorted to magic missiles which pulsed into the goddess.
"We are all Individuals! They chanted in unison...

It's when Visuit attacked Furamil with her immortals; where Nwm got one shot, got saved by Ortwine retroactively, then one shot again after he smacked her with a spontaneous transvalent ritual fwoosh.
After which, before his Resurrection, Tramst let Eadric 'choose two' from seven (times seven unnumbered times). Fultum and Anto turn out to be certain meditations; their Sovereign manifestations are stated up in the Legacy thread where Sep used to post stats.

I have difficulty considering Nwm, who dropped a bolide upon an elder abomination, "common-folk".
Then again, he may very well be as only people of his stature have survived to this point. It's all relative, I suppose.

i would agree with the Baron... no way that Nwm is "normal" now. He might not be a Pseudonatural Spellwarped Demigod like Mostin or Eadric, but he is dropping comets on Divine Emanations and teaching gods.
Normal would be a commoner, etc.
Morne doesn't really have any normal people left IFAIK though because of the Mass Resurrection done, they all came back with some celestial templates I think.

Soneillon doesn't appear particularly evil, either. Not like Surab- remember how he tormented Iua, drawing her into madness and evil... breaking her? (I looked it up- the post was from 06-25-06, page 8 of the compilation thread.)
I can't recall Soneillon doing anything like that. But I've forgotten a lot.

But you should be warned: there are things here which you would regard as obscene, debased and insane. You are likely to be offended."
"I’ve come this far," Eadric pointed out. "I will reserve judgement."
"It will still shake you to your core."
Eadric found that she was right. The suffering there knew no limits, and the pleasure derived by those who inflicted it was transient, grotesque and depraved.
It was, after all, the Abyss.
Pursuing irrational ends by any means necessary.
