Thanks for understanding. ^^ Hell yeah! That mind-splitting ability is something I borrowed from my own story that I'm working on. That said, Dasgreil's magic, and the others who've been brought up to follow that way of sorcery, is not the only way to use magic in TDatG. The Empress, for one, uses magic in a way that is tied directly to nature, allowing her to bypass the need for spells. The demon was able to mask his ability, which comes from being taught another lifestyle of using Terraria's magic. About hell (Move your mouse to reveal the content) About hell (open) About hell (close) The confusion is probably on my part for not making it clearer. :] The Wall of Flesh is a player (and actually has been a player for some time, but its involvement has been off-screen and in the past, so don't think you've missed the signs or anything; also, this doesn't count as a spoiler because I've mentioned before in some earlier post that WoF would appear at one point). And yup, the demon worships the Wall of Flesh ("another red god," although the validity of this deity is up for debate), along with the other denizens of hell. Also, the demon's existence is news to both Elaine and Dasgreil. As far as they and everyone else knows, hell is a made-up place--even blasphemous, since the Church of the Red God doesn't recognize it. The people of Terraria, above ground, worship the Red God that Dasgreil has reflected on, has appeared in Adam's dreams and is present in the beginning of this chapter in a dream while speaking to a disloyal disciple. The Empress is not the Wall of Flesh. Lol. Although I could see how that might be possible, what with her tendrils spilling out at unfortunate times. But the WoF is a creature of fire and the depths, whereas Elaine, while certainly a ruthless person, is a dryad -- to a certain extent. Much thanks. And your patience is appreciated. I feel I should make something else clear, in case there's some confusion. The Fiery Great-Sword (which, as far as I'm concerned, will not be called as such in this story if only because it sounds...kinda lame. [Sorry. But in-game, the title works just fine!] I'll just refer to it as the great-sword for now.) The timeline as it stands now with regards to the Great-Sword: the god-killer took it from hell; the Empress took it from him before she states also killing him; the great-sword was stolen from the Empress; and now the sword has appeared in the mansion/house that Adam and co. are staying at. The missing information will be filled in as the story continues, so nobody worry just yet about me starting to make shit up willy-nilly. So. There are some other hints/clues in this chapter but if y'all have already read the thing once, then it's not fair to have to read it all over again to pick up on some other stuff.
