The Terisiare Final Four on EMPN - Chewie! Slate (9/15/2006)

[Editor's note: In trying to fix the weird HTML gremlins that decided to pop up in this article, the forum link got lost. Here it is in case anyone wants to discuss this article:

Good day and welcome to EMPN - the Entertainment and Magic Programming Network. I'm Jim Sportsinterviews, and today on EMPN, we have a real treat for you. It's the culmination of weeks of planning, preparation, and warmongering. It’s the final battle for the fate of our world, the Terisiare Final Four, only on EMPN!

We have here tonight four mighty planeswalkers from across the multiverse, each with his own particular stake in today's event. First up is the true power behind the Rime, the unimaginably powerful Rex Michaelus! He wants the Thaw stopped at all costs. He's out to ensure that the groundhog sees his shadow and we get 10,000 more years of winter. Why? In his own words from the pre-battle press conference, he looks really good in a Wumpus-fur coat.

Necromancer Chewie is here, with his undead legions. He fights for nothing more or less than absolute power over life and death, mostly death, is that too much to ask? Too much to ask? Who is that idiot behind the teleprompter? Taaveti Kelsinko? Get him out of here! This is not one of those sitcom rerun channels, this is EMPN for Bosh’s sake.

. At the same time! On a public holiday! Apparently, he’s in this contest because he wants those darn kids to stay out of his driveway.

And finally, we have the leader of the Thaw Movement, the left hand of Freyalise herself, The Pendragon Zero. Apparently her right hand man just gets her coffee and paints her nails. He’s here to put Heidar and his crew down for good and let the Thaw continue. He apparently also wants a Terisiare Powerball Lottery instituted because it would be great for the post-Thaw economy. There’s going to be some definite tension between the Pendragon Zero and Rex Michaelus, a staunch anti-lottery lobbyist, here today.

Here to offer some insight, we have the best-loved Task Mage herself, Jaya Ballard! Jaya, what do you think will make the difference in today’s match?

Thanks Jim. I think whoever can make the biggest explosion is a shoe-in for this one.

Thanks Jaya, for your wonderfully penetrating commentary. But it looks like the whistle has been blown! Thank you Arcum, you might want to get back in your sleigh and get out of the way. Have you people ever seen a sleigh with a weathervane on top? That Dagsson is a funny guy.

Chewie is the first one to act, although I’m not entirely sure what he’s doing. It looks like he’s staring at a compass of some sort. Maybe he wants to draw a perfect Circle of Protection? Oh, it’s a sextant with a thorn on it. Wait, that doesn’t make any more sense than the compass. Oh well. The Pendragon Zero has been Brainstorm

During all this commotion, Rex Michaelus has been studying the semi-frozen battlefield. Grinning with glee, he gestured once with his hand and a literal wall of frozen skeletons has leapt up in front of him. The Taskmage has hung a little wooden sign up on it that says Drift of the Dead

. How creative. The Dirk has responded by bringing up the Woolly Mammoth’s mate. It appears that everyone is on defense at the moment. Rex saw the second mammoth appear and decided to call in the heavy artillery. Yeah, that’s definitely a Frostwaker. I believe he’s Balduvian, too. He can turn the snow around him into giant flying what’s-its to crush the opposition.

The Pendragon doesn’t seem to like it though. He’s focusing his willpower on a spot just in front of the Frostwaker. Whoa! The Aether just Surged forth from him to envelop the newly arrived wizard. He tried to maintain the spell long enough for it to Ripple into something else, but he just couldn’t manage it. Well that Frostwaker is gone until Rex can find him again. And Zero’s not done yet!

The Dirk doesn’t seem to like all the defense that Rex Michaelus has set up, though. He sends the Yeti and both of the mammoths over to say hi. The Taskmage merely pointed at the Yeti, who fell face-first into the snow. It looks like Rex is just standing his ground with a giant mammoth pounding towards him. What is he thinking?

It melted the wall and sent the massive cascade at the remaining mammoth, who promptly gets crushed. At least now we know what that Viscerid is there for. Another Taskmage has shown up to help the war effort, along with the lost Frostwaker, who is looking bewildered.

I really do fail to see how Zero thinks that’s going to help him, although it has stopped Resizing. A forgery has appeared behind the Yeti, and he’s taking the sword over to it. He’s heating it, and beating it with a hammer. What the...? Oh, I see. That Pendragon is clever. He’s used some old magic.

. The other Ghoul, not wanting to be left alone, jumps in front of the other Bull. So basically, everything just died. That’s ridiculous. Fed up with all the death for no purpose, Chewie summons Sek'Kuar, the legendary Orcish Deathkeeper. It would have been a good idea to think of that before that last assault, huh? The Deathkeeper is rumored to be so revered that his followers rose from their pyres to serve him again as Graveborns. Had he been around a few minutes ago, maybe Chewie would have a fleet of Graveborns with which to defend himself. All powerful planeswalker? The jury’s still out. That was a severe technical error on his part.
