Previously: Kazuma Yagami was recruited to collect a magical item. He failed and went after the people who took it. Backed by the noble mercenary organization Mithril, Kazuma battled Red Ghost and his Super Apes while the Mithril Special Response Team Armed Slave mecha fought with the Winter Guard.
Red Guardian called the Winter Guard members that were outside and told them to stand down. But message was too late. Most of the Mithrel Special Response Team Armed Slaves were down. The only one that was left was the Arbalest piloted by Sosuske Sagara.
His heated contest with Darkstar was looking glim as the other Winter Guard supers started coming their way. A great relief came over Sousuke when they pulled her away.
“We are not enemies here.” Vanguard declared. “Red Guardian is calling for back up. The fight is inside the building.” He regarded Sousuke. “Join us if you like.”
“My team is out of commission.” Sousuke announced. “Because of you.”
“We used non-lethal force.” Vanguard responded. “Your recovery teams should be on the way. Our objective is obviously the same. Stop whatever is happening inside that building. If you are a true soldier, then you will do your duty.”
Sousuke couldn’t argue with that.
Most of the rooms and halls were large enough to fit his thirty-five foot Armed Slave mecha.
Crimson Dynamo led the way. Titanium Man walked along side Vanguard. Sousuke in his Arbalest brought up the rear.
They felt the winds from Kazuma and rushed to see whom he was fighting.
“Red Ghost!” Crimson Dynamo informed his comrades.
The rouge Russian scientist was phased, which made him invulnerable to Kazuma’s winds.
The Super-Apes were doing all of the work, trying their best to get to the wind magic user but his gales were too powerful even for the super-strong gorilla.
When they noticed the Winter Guard approaching, the monkey and the oragatan went to properly welcome them to the battle.
The battlefield was too small for the Arbalest to fit in so Vanguard, ‘suggested’ that Sousuke hold back and make sure no one escape.
As out numbered as the Super-Apes were, they managed to detain the Winter Guard while their master, Red Ghost, went about his business.
He stole away from the fighting and was annoyed to find Red Guardian waiting for him.
“Surrender! Now!” said the Russian super-soldier.
Confident in his ability to defeat him, Red Ghost phased again, and reached out. Red Guardian held his shield up but the intangible hand went right through it and his arm and his chest. When Red Ghost’s hand was inside of Red Guardian’s body, he began to solidify it.
Red Guardian grunted and fell to his knees.
Anxious to finish his job, Red Ghost didn’t take the time to finish him as he moved on and pulled the magic item the Kazuma had intended to retrieve from his pocket.
Before him was a mystical doorway, the item in his hand was the key to opening it. The simple act of holding it to the doorway unlocked the passage.
As Red Guardian recovered, he regretted that he didn’t have the strength to do anything yet as beings began to step through.
He could however call for backup. Kazuma stayed behind to finish off the Super-Apes and Sousuke Sagara’s Arbalest was too big to come in so the Winter Guard was all that stood between the world and this new threat.
They arrived to behold seven demonic creatures congratulating Red Ghost.
“You have succeeded where our brother Shendu failed.” One of them said.
Another once declared, “Now we will resume our plans of old and take this world.”
Just in case they hadn’t noticed them, Vanguard called attention to the presence of the Winter Guard.
“Not if we can help it.”
The demons glared at them. One monstrous being who crackled with lighting addressed their challenge.
Stop the demons!
Vote for the Winter Guard if you think they can stop the Demon Sorcerers from leaving the facility through killing them, sending them back to their prison dimension or whatever.
Vote for The Demon Sorcerers if you think they will kill the Winter Guard and continue on with their plans.
The Winter Guard members are:
Red Guardian- basically a Russian Captain America
Crimson Dynamo- basically a Russian Iron Man
Darkstar- darkforce powers (think Green Lantern only with blackness instead of green light energy)
Titanium Man- basically another Russian Iron Man
Vanguard- carries a hammer and a sickle and repels concussive attacks back to the aggressor.
The Demon Sorcerers are:
Dai Gui- earth controlling powers
Xiao Fung- frog-like demon with wind powers
Bai Tza- water elemental powers
Hsi Wu- winged demon with shape shifting abilities
Tso Lau- gravity powers
Po Kong- giant Jabba the Hutt looking demon no powers displayed but she’s like 100 feet
Tchang Zu- lighting powers
Shendu is not in this fight (he we killed by Hordak a long long time ago in the early matches of my megastory)
