Nekron is pulling a "Come to the dark side" combined with "Take the shot, I dare you" moment. EPIC.

It's the reference this epic deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

As usual, Vorex threw in some new characters, had Inc act completely out of character from the last time we saw him, and referred to the end of the world half a gazillion times. :PHe also included some action and plot twists, and tried to bring the Time-Keepers back together to give the story something remotely resembling coming full circle. (Read it as Vorex the author (:P). Although, if you read it as Vorex the character, it's kinda funny)And having plot development or character development for the sake of plot development or character development is not a recipe for good writing.

I don't see any new characters. Any currently existing characters have been referred to previously (even the 'True Mystix', who might be seen as new characters, were referred to in the prologue of Shadows). Incommodo isn't acting completely out of character -- if you look back to the prologue of DM:PI, he had already started on this way.Full circle? What's this about a full circle? We're not even finished with the first part yet... :evilgrin:- Vorex

Bit 1: Hooray for extensive apocalyptic destruction!Bit 2: So why did Nekron get hurt if only the lower class ones get hurt when their host does?Bit 3: Owned.

... you killed the world.”

Erm... That was kind of a lame line to end on. Couldn't he have said 'ended the world' or 'destroyed the world' or something less meh?

I disagree, those two lines that you offered are much too cliché. I like the line that Vorex gave.

Have a look at the changes and then look back on DM:PII.3: As I said, Inc and Reich's conversation. Also, what Kal said.@Scratch: Thankyou, and wait and see...@Kal: I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. :PAlright people, I hope you're all looking forward to the next chapter -- because starting now, plot armour means :censored: . :evilgrin:(I will happily accept bets on the first to die)- Vorex

Nikarra. I'm just throwing caution to the wind at this point. I stopped trying to see what will happen around chapter 9, so anything from here on out is a surprise to me. Feel free to share my history with the younger gentlemen, Vorex. :fear:- :s: :c: :r: :a: :t: :c: :h:

Proditor... What a way to go...Anyway, back to the review. AMAZING return to form (and it figures you'd start out by killing a main character!)And the rift between Incommodo and Pirok continues to widen! Meanwhile that sneaky chronicler,(as I call him), continues to get his facts wrong.Wait... is it me or does Nekron seem a bit like Smith from The Matrix now? And what is the true nature behind Terror glitch and there are MORE of the Society of Shades?In conclusion, fantastic return chapter. Just, please don't make us wait too long for the next one!-Eredar

I've made a few other references to the Matrix here and there, as well.Also, I thought you'd have the nature of the glitch figured out now, from all the clues I've been dropping...I'll try not to. :biggrin:- Austin Powers

You may ask, and you will be answered, if you look back at previous chapters and think about recent events. If that doesn't work for you, just wait for the final chapter of Part I, and all will be explained.No comment on Horror's name? :P- Austin Powers

...How did you know that I was planning to have the next chapter be the last one in Part I? (or, the second-last)*backs away, slowly*Not all of the Mystix -- just Zarnarax, who engineered the deaths of other Mystix and planned to escape with Aclaraung, who disappeared after beginning the battle between the Mystix and the Shadows, who are now pretty much invincible.Also, I get it, everyone is sad because Pirok's dead.

I can't believe Pirok died but Frustro survived.Also it seems like Inc's character development is all for nothing now that he's just gone back to being all fourth-wall-break-y.On the other hand the ArkNik shenanigans were tres enjoyables.

Greatest. Penultimate chapter. Ever. Of all time. Not even kidding. I mean we start out with the arrest of Nikarra and Arkrak. Incommodo, who it appears has finally begun talking to himself. Enough said. Frustro is threatened be an unknown assailant, who gives him a very clear warning. And all the while, Nekron prepares his endgame. WOW. Looking forward to the next installment. -Eredar
