The Deep Roads, a place where the dwarves have been fighting a war for centuries, though it can't be called much of a battle and more of small skirmishes. The Deep Roads holds many evil things such as demons and undeads.

Though all of the Deep Roads used to be the mighty dwarves' kingdom, roughly 90% of it has been lost to the demons and undeads and to Time it self. Still, the dwarves hold massive land under Umoba and have bases throughout the Deep Roads to keep the demons and the undead from reaching their city.

But in recent years, the worrying fact that more and more demons and undead have begun to appear may point to the resurrection of something much more evil, something that has long been forgotten, something that the Gods themselves banished to our world in the beginning.

"Comon Boys, where almost there" The captain said as a small platoon of Dwarves and Gnomes walked through the deep roads, the Platoon was made up of around 30 Warriors, 10 rifle men, and 1 scout. the small platoon was heading to a small outpost deeper in the Deep roads to relieve another platoon that had been there for about 5 weeks now, the last message received is that they had about 10 casualties and would need to be relieved soon, the long dark massive hall way of the part of the Deep roads they where in stretched for what seemed to be forever, but soon they could see the out post, at first every one was relieved but then horror griped the small platoon as shrieks rang out, the captain took a look through binoculars, His hands began shaking and his face twisted in anger
"What the hell" is all he could mutter, small talk began to sound through out the platoon.
"Warriors! FORM RANKS!" he yelled, the warriors at first where confused but formed a double line crossing the entire hall way
"Sir, what is it?" one of the younger warriors asked
"Ive never seen so many demons in one area before... they have taken the out post, RIFLE MEN AIM AND PREPARE TO FIRE!" the Rifle men ran up putting there barrels through the holes in the warriors line using the warriors shoulders to steady there aim.

The captain turned and faced the scout who immediately stood at attention
"Go... deliver this note to the king" The captain said hurrying scribbling a few paragraphs onto a piece of paper "Go, before our line breaks" the Captain turning back and taking out his weapon "DRINKS ARE ON ME BOYS! FOR HONOR AND GLORY!" the Captain yelled the Warriors and rifle men Yelled and cheered with fury in there eyes, there morale was higher than ever.

Bazzle was sitting on a box in one of the outpost in the Deep roads, a fire roared a few meters away from him with a few elite Soldiers sitting around it, most of them special forces. Bazzle sat there smoking on his pipe looking around the massive hallways, it was damp, dark, and cold in the Deep Roads, the Roaring pits with lava where all near the Dwarf and Gnome kingdom, Bazzle thought of this as a... nice change of scenery, for once the temperature was actually normal instead of 150 degrees or so, though since he had become accustomed the the heat he had an extra blanket wrapped around himself, even if he could handle the cold it wasn't necessary so why bother? he though to him self taking a long deep puff from his pipe and blowing the smoke out through his nose.

"Hey, when is the relief team suppose to get here?" Bazzle asked of the dwarfs and gnomes around the fire
"Hell if I know" one said "But they should be here in a few days, its been so boring at this level" The dwarf said, level referring to how deep in the cave they where, they weren't too far in, a few hours of walking and you would reach the Dwarf and Gnome kingdom... and the lava pits, the kingdom was built above the lava pits.

"Open the gate!" one of the gate guards yelled from outside of the Outpost's small wall, the message was received by two more guards on the inside of the gate and the gate slowly opened, after it had opened enough for someone to fit through a Scout came running in, he collapsed near the gate and the two guards help him up. Bazzle and the other special forces unit that where sitting around the fire watched the scene, but soon most of them lost interest, Bazzle though got up from his box and walked over to the young scout.

"Whats your name boy?" Bazzle asked
The scout looked at him, pure terror in his eyes, his right hand gripping a letter as if he loosened the grip it would jump up and kill him, the scout was breathing heavy and sweating tremendously "Jorock" he said
"Jorok, it seems you have been running for a while, why dont you take a rest" Bazzle said offering the scout a chair
"No...time" he said "I...come from out post.... with a message...for the King" he said desperately, pushing his self to walk forward
"Hold on a moment" Bazzle said throwing the scout into a chair, the guards assisting him with the task "You on the verge of collapsing how long have you been running?"
"5...days..." the scout said through heavy breaths, at this Bazzle was shocked... 5 days of continuous running and at that a scout doing that, he probably came from one of the deepest outpost.
Bazzle thought for a moment and then looked at Jorok "Ill deliver your message, you rest" Bazzle said taking the letter from the scout, the scout's eyes closed and he passed out "Get him medical treatment" Bazzle ordered two of the guards who saluted and ran off.

Bazzle's eyes moved tot he closed envelope "What could this letter hold that this scout pushed his body to the limits" Bazzle said to him self and slightly worried look on his face as he walked to the other side of the out post, the guards opened the gate for him and he walked off towards the Kingdom and Tarrog.

Arwyn and Ethan had been wandering for hours, a silence between the two as they walked further and further into the dark tunnel
"Your lost aren't you" Arwyn said
"Shut up" Ethan mumbled
"My Master would never get lost" Arwyn said
"SHUT UP!" Ethan yelled
'Hmph" Arwyn turned her head looking at the walls "Hey" she said touching the walls"
"Shut up already! I know your Master would Never get lost I KNOW YOUR MASTER IS APPARENTLY GREAT!" Ethan yelled out of rage
"Not that, the walls... there a bit wet" Arwyn said
"So?" Ethan said and continued walking
Arwyn turned to see Ethan a bit a ways down the tunnel "Hey! Wait up!" she said and ran after him "And not so" she told him when she caught up to him "If the walls are getting wetter, that must mean we are getting deeper into the ground"
"Who says? your Master?" Ethan said sarcastically
"Yes! He does... and if you want to get to the surface it would be wise to turn around" She said
"Look, I don't know who this Master of yours is, but he dosen't seem to bright, I mean you where just collapsed in the middle of the road when me and Tyler found you, you apparently aren't that strong, and if your Master is the one who trained you, he must be weak to" Ethan said waving his hand and continued walking
"TAKE THAT BACK!" Arwyn said as the two continued to walk arguing amongst themselves.

***

After another few hours they could see a slight glow at the end of the tunnel "HA! See I told you this was the right way" Ethan said running to it
"Impossible!" Arwyn said running after him, Ethan came to the end of the tunnel and stopped, Arwyn almost running over him
"Ow! Hey! why did you sto-"
Below them about 300 meters below there where thousands of fires going, and millions of... creatures, moving around, thousands of large red dots could be seen, and where identified as Beserkers
"What the hell...." Arwyn said "Where did you lead us!" She yelled, Ethan threw a hand over her mouth and pulled the flaying Arwyn back into the cave, trying to shush her, a roar was herd and a massive Dragon flew past the Tunnels end landing on a Bridge above the massive Chasm, it gave a massive roar letting fire rip forth from its maw, its perched there for a Second as hundreds of other Dragons flew past it, it expanded its wings again and took off into the air, both Ethan and Arwyn crept up tot he Tunnels exit again taking a better look at the ground
"What is it?" Arwyn said
"And army of course" Ethan said
"Yea! but what for?" Arwyn said, both of them struck with Fear and awe at the same time
"I don't know... but for now, lets cross that bridge" he said.
There was a large Bridge and multiple others, one of witch the dragon had perched on, Arwyn and Ethan looked to there left and right.
to the right was a small path going along the edge of the Chasm's walls at the end was a large area with what looked to be ruins and few bridges connected to it, to the left was another small path along the Chasm's walls leading to another tunnel, falling off the Edge would mean plummeting to your death about 300-500 meters below you... and if the fall didn't kill you it was sure that t he Army would, both Arwyn and Ethan gulped, they decided to go tot he right both of them pressed against the wall as they inched across the edge to the larger ground area, as they finally reached the other side both of the ran and ducked into some ruins, they peered out of them to see some Orcs sitting around a fire eating some meat.
"Now what?" Arwyn said
"I dont know... we try to sneak past?" Ethan said looking around him "And we run across the bridge to the other side
"Yea ok..." Arwyn said nervously

Both of them were unaware of the shadow that had crept up behind them and sidled up next to Ethan.
"Come on-" Suddenly Ethan stopped, his body going rigid, then he relaxed and looked up, a different than usual expression on his face.
"Pretty girl, pretty girl, how do you do?" He said then snickered. "What a beautiful day." He danced around Arwyn.
"What the hell?!?" Arwyn frowned at Ethan. "Whats wrong with you?"
Ethan didnt reply and peered down at the demons. "Bad demons. Demons bad. " He grabbed her hand. "Wheeeee." He dashed across at full speed, dragging Arwyn behind him.
"Ethan!!!!!" Arwyn hissed, praying that the demons wouldnt see them.
No luck.
With a grunt, one of the orcs pointed at the running duo and the others roared and launched after them.

The Rook was a fortress at the entrance of The Deep Roads. It had been built for the Fallen War by the dwarfs to fend off the Uzkul. Abandoned after the war, it was later taken over by a cult that worshipped Hakkar: the Fallen Order. Their leader, Vincent Lhuillier, had just been in a meeting with Adam and Eve, whom had just left. A Pawn -the equivilent to a peon- walked in and bowed.
"Speak," said Lhuillier's metallic voice, distorted by his mask that covered his face.
"Your Lordship, orcs have spotted intruders," reported the Pawn.
"Dwarfs wander around here all the time. The orcs can devour them and the dwarfs will be considered lost to the cave."
"Tis not dwarfs but humans."
"Humans? Interesting. Humans have not walked these hallowed caves in a long time."
Since his entire body was covered, even what looked liked blonde hair was actually prostetic, it was hard to guess what species Lhuillier was. Most made the mistake to guess he was human. In actuality, Lhuillier was a vampire, one that had served Hakkar from the beginning. He was also the only living resident of The Rook, since the rest were either his marionette creation Pawns or Undead; sometimes orcs were stationed at The Rook but was rare.
"Your orders?" asked the Pawn.
"Keep me updated," ordered Lhuillier. "If they manage to defeat the orcs, guide them here. I would like to meet them."

Ethan whooped and raced ahead,yanking Arwyn behind him.
"Ethan!!!" Arwyn snapped then heard roars and turned her head to see the orcs chasing them. "Oh damn!" She cried and ran at full speed, overtaking Ethan.
"Pretty Lady is fast." Ethan yelled happily as suddenly he was being dragged after Arwyn.
They reached the other side and Arwyn swung Ethan aside and raised her hand. she gave a smirk as a bright glowing circle appeared in front of her, from it Glowing blue Arrows flew from it at least 10 in all they flew at the Orcs and collided with them giving off explosions, some stone shattering and flying into the air as dust.
"Are they dead?" Ethan asked
"I don't know" Arwyn said
"NO THEY AREN'T!" Ethan yelled as they both saw some orcs run through the dust cloud, cuts and bruises on there body.
"Yea but there badly injured" Arwyn yelled as she took out her dagger and launched her self at the first orc slamming the dagger into its chest stabbing its heart, the orcs arms flailed for a second and then slumped to its side, Arwyn began to push the body off her as a sword launched through the body cutting her cheek, she gave a yelp and jumped back, the body falling forward sliding off the sword of a fellow orc, the Orc standing there gave a roar and jumped at Arwyn, Arwyn raised her hand forming a magic circle, the circle stopped the sword in mid swing, Arwyn turned her body spinning out from under the circle and slammed her dagger into the orcs side, the orc gave a yell of pain and Arwyn a wry smile
"Not done yet" she said as she dragged the blade through the orcs body all the way to the back severing its spinal cord, the orc's body froze and it fell down dead, Arwyn looked up to see the last orc charging at her
"You wont even get close" she said raising a hand, another circle formed and from is launched a stream of fire engulfing the orc in flames, its flailing body running around the bridge screaming in pain, it hit the side of the bridge and tumbled off the side.
Both Arwyn and Ethan peaked over the side as they watched the burning body become smaller and smaller.
"Pretty Lady strong." Ethan said wide eyed and stepping closer, hugged her tightly. "Thank ye, Pretty lady for saving my life" And he kissed her deeply.

"How disgusting," commented a metallic voice.
Ethan and Arwyn turned around to see a masked character in a black uniform. Arwyn recognized him. Arwyn had read about him in several history lessons. He was the famous vampire who had been self-exiled and eventually became the leader of the Fallen Order, a cult that worshipped Hakkar. Historians thought he was dead.
"Lord Vincent Lhuillier," identified Arwyn.
"Very good," complimented Lhuillier. "You seem powerful. Would you like to conform to the way of the Fallen Order? No? What a shame."
A Pawn, a puppet, jumped down from the ceiling. Lhuillier began to walk away.
"Kill them," ordered Lhuillier.
The Pawn erected karatas and charged at Ethan and Arwyn.

"HEY! WAIT UP! YOU!" Arwyn yelled as she threw a punch into Ethan's face, wiping hers with her other arm, her eyes where glowing with Anger as she looked at the pawn
"I AM NOT! IN A GOOD MOOD!" She screamed looking at Ethan on the ground rubbing his cheek
"Ill deal with YOU later" she yelled and turned back to face the pawn, she took out her dagger and spun it around in her fingers.

Whether the Pawn didn't comprehend what Arwyn said or just didn't care, it charged at them, karatas out. Arwyn sensed dark magic in the metal, probably poisonous.

Ethan observed from a distance, his eyes wide.
"GO PRETTY GIRL. GO." He cheered loudly.
"Keep it down you idiot!!!!" Arwyn scolded.
Sure enough, behind the Pawn's back, she could see more demons approach.

Arwyn turned around, her back to a dead Pawn, it was cut up into multiple peices, Ethan who was acting weird jumped up and tried to kiss her again, the slapped him tot he ground grabbed his collar and started to walk into a small cave in the wall of the massive Cavern.

After walking f or a few hours they could finally see light, Ethan was still being dragged by Arwyn and once she got close enough threw him into the sun light, Arwyn stepped out, Lava flows still plagued the mountains of Umoba and the sunlight burned her eyes for a second
"Damn... so bright"

The wooden gate opened up in front of Bazzle, Kyle, Yunna, and a few other Special Ops soldiers
"There ya go, now hurry on out, I wanna close this gate as fast as I can" The Gate keeper said to them
Bazzle looked up at him and laughed "You think this gate will even hold?" He said in a joking manner
"I Sure hope it holds for a good 10 seconds, long enough for me to bolt back to Bal'Azul" The gate keeper chuckled back

The team exited the gate and the gate closed behind them
"Well here we are, on of the main highways of the Deep Roads" Bazzle said
Kyle and Yunna looked around the tunnel or "Highway" was a good 20-30 meters wide and a 40-50 meters high
"ONE of them?" Asked Yunna in a slightly surprised and shocked voice
"Yea, there is about 50 or 60 of these" Bazzle said
"SIXTY!?" Blurted Yunna
"it will take about 5 days travel to reach the Front lines out post" Bazzle said "But, we are taking a hidden way, about 4-5 hours up this road is a small outpost, they have been digging a small one man hole straight down for a few weeks now, and have finally reached a small tunnel, we think the tunnel may lead to one of the large gathering area's of the Uzkul, its our mission to jump down the hole and mark on the map where we end up, and if there are Uzkul mark that on the map also"
Both Kyle and Yunna looked at Bazzle, both of there faces held slightly confused looks
"Dont worry, ill be the one marking, your jobs are to keep us alive and get the map out of the tunnels if you fail the first job... and im sure as hell hoping you wont fail the first job" Bazzle said with a laugh

"Well then, lets get going" Kyle said
Bazzle and Yunna nodded and the force of about 10 started walking down the long tunnel.

After a few hours they had reached the smaller out post, though there wernt any walls around it, just a larger Metal box int he middle of a bunch of dwarf and gnome warriors, Kyle had guessed that was the box.
Bazzle walked over to the boxed and a few warriors came over unlocking different locks with keys they had been given, finally Bazzle opened the door, pungent air rushed out from the entrance, a smell of Sweat, year old cheese, blood, and a host of other smells mixed up in there, Kyle and Yunna covered there noses.
"Your up first" Bazzle said to Kyle, Kyle gave a slight nod and walked forward, his nose still covered as he walked through the door and started to climb down the hole
"Your next" Bazzle said, Yunna still a bit unwilling walked forward and followed Kyle, Bazzle after her and the other 7 soldiers after Bazzle

***

Kyle jumped down a few meters into a small cave, the cool air rushing past him, it was a refreshing feeling, one that wouldn't last to long, a few minutes after he had gotten out so had all of the troops and Bazzle, Bazzle took out a map, that to Yunna and Kyle looked like nothing more than squiggly lines on a piece of paper
"This way" Bazzle said as he turned to his left and walked down the cave
Kyle could see a orange glow slowly glowing brighter, at the end of the cave were some rocks, that Bazzle and the other troops ducked behind, Kyle and Yunna did the same
"Blast, we need to take this route to get to on of the other Highways, one that we think they are using to move troops around" Bazzle said peeking over the rock, Kyle and Yunna did the same, on the other side was a slightly larger cave, about 10 meters in height and 20 meters in width, so the problem obviously wasn't the size, it was the some odd 30 Urks, 40+ goblins and 5 Beserkers that had set up camp there.
"Well, you two are up" Bazzle said to Kyle and Yunna "we will give you assistants with our rifles"

Kyle nodded.
"Let's divide them." Kyle said. "I'll approach from the right and you take the left."
Yunna nodded and they separated.

The berserker let out roars as they spotted Kyle, who stood in the open, clearly drawing attention to himself.
They again let out roars as they spotted Yunna on the other side. The army separated going for the two.
