13 Successes over 5
Currens eyes slowly became accustomed to the gloom, a small measure of light permeated the caverns emanated by crystal veins weaving their way throught the spaghettified root sytems. The air smelled of earth and salt, a heavy musky scent, as he carefully wound his way deeper he continually pushed the thought of the mountains weight looming above him.
As he progressed he also felt the eddies and flows of mana around him, he reached an intersection in the tunnels, here the mana flow was strong, very strong a if he'd stepped into the rapids of a river. Steadying himself amongst the energies he became aware of a fiery heat flare in the palm of his hand.
Raising his palm he saw the stone, its fiery glyph raging at its heart, embers of mana spluttered from the symbol dancing up into the mana currents.
He felt the rise and flare of power a moment too late, flame pouring from the stone and enshrounding him in a sphere.
He felt both emmense heat playing across his skin, his eyes although squeezed shut were emblazoned by red light, his eyebrows smouldered as he was propelled in an unknown direction.
Curren opened his eyes to an inferno, he stood upon a blackened rock plane, behind him a sheer drop as the black granite descended into lakes of golden molten liquid, looking back at the planes before him he saw great forms boring their way through the rock and shale.
Past the boring creatures he noted large towers, his immediate situation however was more pressing his Shielding was keeping the air which itself was alight from incinerating him, however it was weakening, worn down by elemental energies.
