The teens trudged down the road, talking and complaining about the mission they were on.
ERIC: What I don't understand is why we have to go and fight this Dread Warlord anyway. It's not as if he's threatening to conquer the world. He just has one measly mining town.
HANK: Dungeon Master said from the smallest point great changes can be made. I guess that means if we don't stop him here he could become more dangerous. Maybe even more powerful than Venger.
BOBBY: More powerful than Venger? Whoah!
ERIC: If you ask me this whole thing is a waste of time. We should be looking for a way home, not fighting some idiot who actually calls himself Dread Warlord.
DIANA: Well, the Dungeon Master said the guy has the power to swim through the walls of the world. That might mean he has a way to get home. And we might be able to take it from him.
SHEILA: Besides, the place we're going to is called Diamond Point. Which means what they mind is diamonds. I wouldn't mind picking me up some jewelry.
ERIC: Diamonds! Well if that's the case, what are we waiting for? Let's go save that town!

SHEILA: There too many of them! We have to run!
HANK: Cover your eyes! I'll slow them down!
The blond ranger launches a bolt of energy from his magic bow, which flies into the midst of the gargoyles exploding in a brilliant flash of light. Blinded by the sudden burst, the gargoyles stumble in the air, trying to regain their bearings. Several collide into each other, tumbling to the ground. This distraction gives the teens enough time to reach the entrance of a nearby mine.
PRESTO: Hey, it looks like there recovering from your flash, Hank.
ERIC: Not that it did us much good, since now we're trapped in here til they come and get us!
BOBBY: Like you can do better?
ERIC: I probably could!
DIANA: Guys, this is not the time! We've got an army of angry gargoyles headed right for us! Quit arguing and help hold them off!
The army of gargoyles rush toward the teens, determined to capture or kill them for their master. Fortunately for the party, the confines of the mine entrance only let a dozen of the creatures able to maneuver inside, keeping the gargoyles from overwhelming them with sheer numbers. They all fight ferociously to hold off their attackers. Bobby smashes some with his club while Hank blasts others with energy arrows. Diana hits others with her javelin while Eric shield bashes and Sheila trips others while invisible. Still, despite their valiant efforts, it looks like that sooner or later, the gargoyles would eventually overcome them
HANK: This isn't working! We can't outlast them! We're going to get tired before they are!
ERIC: Brilliant deduction, Sherlock.
SHEILA: Presto! You've gotta be able to pull something out of your hat that can help us.
PRESTO: I'll try, Sheila. Ummm, Oh magic hat, wonderous and wise, give me something to get rid of these guys!
A gust of air puffs out of the hat.
ERIC: That's it? Oh brother!
PRESTO: Wait guys, look!
The gust of air begins whirling and growing rapidly until it becomes a small tornado. It rushes over the gargoyles in the mine and sucks them up, growing even bigger in size. Once outside the mine it grows to a full size twister and begins to sweep across the gargoyle army, sucking all of the creatures into its maw. Once all the gargoyles have been scoured from the surrounding land, the tornado rises into the cloulds and then vanishes.
ERIC: Wow! I take it back Presto. Way to go.
BOBBY: But where did they go?
PRESTO: Umm, Oz?
HANK: Well, I don't care where they went, just as long as they're gone. Let's go, guys. We've got a town to save.

A few seconds later DW FBH pulled up with in loud hailer distance of the teenage heroes.
D.W FBH: "good morning. i didn't think you would get past those gargoyles quite so easily. Thankfully I can generate more minions at will. I don't really need this miserable town... but I'm going to try and kill you teens anyway because your annoying and it means when I do want to take this world then Its one less problem. "

The Dreadwarlord responds to this with a blast of plasma. It would have killed the entire group if it wasn't for Eric's shield getting in the way, generating a dome of force to protect the group.
ERIC: Look, can't we just talk things over?
DIANA: I don't think talking's going to work with him.
The Dreadwarlord launches another blast, which sends the group scrambling. It misses them all, detonating against the ground in a large explosion. Unluckily, Bobby's little unicorn is wounded by flying rock.
BOBBY: Uni! He hurt Uni! Let's get him!
The angry barbarian strikes at an outcropping of rock, sending shards flying at high speeds to impact on the Dreadwarlord. Even with his body armor it hurt him.
Hank: Look! Just leave us alone!
The Dreadwarlord launches another plasma blast, only to have it detonated in front of him by one of Hank's energy arrows. He's engulfed in the explosion. Immediately afterward another arrow strikes him in the chest, almost knocking him out of the air.
DREADWARLORDFBH: I grow weary of this battle. I go now to attend to other matters, but when I return I shall destroy you.
BOBBY: If you come back it's you who'll be destoryed!
With that the DreadwarlordFBH flew away and phased out, leaving the lost teenagers to tend to the wounded unicorn.

Flicking through a copy of forgotten realms he picks ....Selgaunt in sembia knowing that this will be a more difficult target than his last he buys him some power armor before leaving. (NB for those of you who own rifts the armor is naruni mecha knight) the city will be a much more difficult proposition than his last attack sight but much more profitable if he can pull it off.

Quickly the city's troops and spell casters assembled on the wall ready to face this hoard with blades and spells. The hoard did not oblige them. instead it just sat there. after a few minutes (when the city defenders were starting to get jumpy) a red star flying at high speed toward the citadel. dread warlord FBH flew over the citadel he bought up his Plasma bow wave to the maximum his speed allowed. the massive plasma wave flashed over the wall and exploded in the bailey vaporizing out buildings troopers waiting there. the blast coincidental killed every man on the wall with in 100 meters point of impact. to complete the destruction the Dread warlord launched a pair of mini missiles into the keep blasting it flaming rubble.
the Dread warlord continued his strafing run clearing the walls with plasma waves and blasting towers with his suits weapons. Several wizards managed to deflect the incoming plasma waves. but it didn't do them much good soon they went under in swarms of gargoyles.
Dread warlord FBH flew back out in a lazy arc. it looked like the city was his at least for now.

Dread warlord FBH circled over the roof tops of Selgaunt blissfully unaware of the fact munchking had been sent after him. It looks like this stage of the plan is going quite well. The city has been taken more or less intact most of the population is alive and his troops have not taken significant losses. Now all they had to do was loot the place before a counter attack in sufficient force to dislodge him.
The Looting began. A rifts generator was set up in the main square and the varies goods were taken through it back to Dread warlord FBH's phase world ware house complex. Everything that could be taken was; the city's treasury was quickly emptied and it contents taken through the gate. Merchant guilds where raided Gold and gems were taken first followed up by varies trade goods, finally the city's inhabitants were chained together and taken through the gate on mass, they would sell quite well in the slave markets. Almost as an after thought varies animals where taken through some one would no doubt buy them.
The only things left untouched was the city's temples (dread warlord FBH didn't want any gods coming after him at the moment thank you very much.)
as he watched the proceedings the dread warlord smiled to him self. yes the plan was going very well so far.

Above the city, a storm brewed up instantaneously from nowhere...
Thunder rumbled... a sign of Divine Wrath...
DWFBH looked up. He had a bad feeling about this...

To speed up the remains of the looting DW FBH created another huge wave of gargoyles to load up the city's goods.

Among those who did go and execute their soldiers inevitably found that quite a few of their men had somehow learned of their fate and defected. No amount of scrying or searching could find these escaped soldiers.
Meanwhile, the divine storm above their heads continued to build.
b) Unfortunately, his efforts were for naught as lightning suddenly ripped through the heavens. A rain of fire and brimestone rushed forth from behind dull black clouds. Within moments, the gargoyle army was decimated to but a few survivors. Among DWFBH's human army, all was chaos as soldiers and officers ran for their lives in panic. Each had the mad look of mania in their eyes, as their minds were afflicted by the vengeance of the deities. Many were also struck down by the fiery rain, and only a few were lucky enough to survive.
Alas, the rain not only destroyed the Dread Warlord's forces, but also ruined most of the loot he had been trying to gather. DWFBH fumed as he looked upon his completely ruined plans. He would have to start anew elsewhere... again.
Written by FBHthelizardmage 04-27-2002 07:16 AM
The first plan assault fort knox DW FBHs spies had detected a nice non super non limited earth and with MDC1 weapons and armor he was sure that his forces could take the places after that looting it should take to long (considering he could make thousands of gargoyles at will) he would lead this operation.
Second he would send a large force of gargoyles to Oearth (the world of greyhawk) to raid caravans and small towns every three days there loot would be transferred back to his phase world base.
Third the Dread warlord had obtained and refitted an old gigantor heavy destroyer (named the Black wednesday) as a commerce raider (fitting it with phase cannons so it could kill a ships crew without damaging the ship) and trained a crew of gargoyles (with a flash learning rig) to fly it. he intended to send this to the star trek galaxy act as a pirate. Since its FTL drive was several thousand times faster than those used there it shouldn't have a hard time escaping anything its superior technology couldn't kill.
(the fort knox raid )
the first sign of trouble the army units around fort knox had was the plasma tsunami rolling over them. Dread warlord FBH clad in winged powered combat armor flew over the burning military base towards the main depository. In his power armors wake six anti gravity APC followed in tight formation.
about a mile out the raiders launched a wave of fragmentation mini missiles the hyper sonic fragments blasted apart the few defenders out side and the front of the depository a few ground to air missiles launched in response were blasted by the APC point defenses (not that they would have done significant damage to the MDC hulls of the transports)
MDC armor clad gargoyles stalked into the ruined front of the depository building to be meet by waves for fire from the guards bullets pinged off the gargoyles armored forms, the grenade launchers and plasma rifles the gargoyles were using swiftly annihilated all opposition in the enter hall. Two squads of gargoyles were sent to clear the rest of the building as FBH and the rest of the gargoyles headed to the main vaults.
Plasma beams made short work of the doors quickly an rift maker was set up in the center of the vault. FBH tossed out a hoard of gargoyles to expedite loading. those gargoyles with MDC weapons and armor set up around the depository as guards.
DWFBH stood near the rift wondering what would go wrong this time.
on of DWFBHs gargoyles watched a caravan pass laden with trade goods. the poor humans didn't know they where walking into an ambush. the master would be most pleased with the goods and gold the caravan carried.
(star trek verse)
the galaxy class USS new york lay in space its shields off line and most of its crew dead from phase beam fire the Black wednesday locked onto it with its tractor beams and prepared to jump with back to phase world.

phase world. )
Currently he is plotting the down fall munchking and who ever sent him.
Dread warlord FBH: I'm sure Munchking didn't come here on his own he's far to stupid to attempt to have thought of tracking me down on his own. no some one sent him and I want to know who. I then want them and there family and friends and any pets the might have ripped limb from limb with extreme prejudice .
Gargoyle captain: all right sire....how would you have this done.

At this point the AG APC FBH has bought with him open fire a storm a rail gun and mini missile fire puts munchking on the floor (not that he'll stay
there with all the life magic he's using if he can get out of the anti magic cloud that is).
Dread warlord FBH walks over to above mountings position and drops a small d hopper tag on him (it quickly burrows inside him so he will need
surgery to get rid of it) he set the controls on his dimension shifters to hurl munchking into another world and keep him there until the D tag is removed.

Just then ominous shadows fell on both the Dreadwarlord and the Munchking. The Dreadwarlord's reconnaissance let him find a world without superhumans. Unfortunately for him, it didn't reveal why there were no super humans.
It had been a few years since last they needed to be used, so there was a delay in dispatching them. But once they were reactivated, the Mark V Sentinels were operating at peak efficiency level, ready to deal with these new superhumans who somehow had escaped the purge.

dread warlord FBH decided to change tactics on mucnhking since even with the amount of gunfire being put into him he wouldn't seem to fall over.
instead DWFBH launched a small phase tech device through the building to take up position in munchkings chest cavity.
the device was a small dimensional remote which would hurl munchking of world if the AM cloud went down FBH pressed a remote and munchking was very surprised to find himself being flung through time and space.
DWFBH dumped out a wave of gargoyles to continue the loading and flew over to his hover tanks to see if there were any more sentinels inbound.

As the DreadwarlordFBH looked, a new wave of Sentinels roared into the area, blasting at the Naruni tanks with powerful energy blasts. Besides their durable armor, these Sentinels enjoyed the benefit of forcefields to protect them from any return fire. Then they started attacking the Gargoyles, blasting them with energy, freezing them with cold beams, and knocking them out with gas attacks. Just then a trio of them spotted the Dread Warlord and moved to attack him directly.
YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF THE GYRICH ACT, ANOMALOUS HUMAN, AND THUS HAVE BEEN SENTENCED TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION!
The three Sentinels then let loose with everything they have at the Dread Warlord. Energy blasts, cold beams, gas attacks, the works. It looked like they were really determined to carry out the sentence.

Seeing that ordinary Sentinels weren't enough to defeat the leader of these anomalous humans, the powers that be decided to dispatch their most advanced model, Nimrod the Ultimate Sentinel.
The Ultimate Sentinel teleports right in front of the Dread Warlord and locks on to him with a tractor beam. Having grabbed him, he then proceeds to blast him with several different types of energy weapons at once. All blasts directed at him are absorbed by his incredible force field. It was beginning to look like the Dread Warlord was in deep trouble.

As a further precaution a hyper velocity missile system was set up in front of the depository to shoot down any more sentinels air craft or missiles that where thrown there way.

Meanwhile, freed from the continuing damage inflicted on it, Nimrod's more advanced self-repair systems restored him to peak operating efficiency. It used its scanners to determine the Dread Warlord's position and then fired an energy shockweb to entangle him.
As for the other Sentinels, with the anti-air missile system destroyed, the half-damaged robots focused their attention on the Juggernaut Tanks, while more Sentinels flew in and attacked the gargoyles loading the gold.

He grabbed the ultimate sentinel and phased with him into another dimension. there was a good one just to the left on this world mutants under magneto ruled. he tossed Nimrod into the mutant ruled earth then phased back into the dimension where his minions were continuing to battle the sentinels.
back around fort knox The naruni tanks were doing quite well despite being heavily out numbered. blasted sentinels littered the ground around them having learned from there earlier encounters the tanks now vaporized the sentinels they shot down with the particle beams and mini missiles. still the numbers against them were great. then from behind the bank a pack of eight hover APCs appeared munchking having departed the APC were free to engage the sentinels.
Dread warlord FBH phased back into the depository his suit guns hammered the sentinels attacking his gargoyle loaders and some plasma grenades took them down for good. once he flew over his promethion made and warranty protected rift maker he launched a plasma bow wave to clear the sentinels away from his loaders. As the robots fell back under his savage onslaught he called his base to bring in a replacement missile launcher.

Suddenly an immense technological cube apeared in a flash of light and locked its own tractor beams on the Black Wednsday.

The Black Wednesday, witnessing its peril, tried to jump dimensions with its newly captured prey. Unfortunately, it found that its dimension traveling drive would not work. Nor were its more powerful weaponry and defense systems. Its engineers frantically checked and rechecked the ship's systems, but could not find the source of the problem afflicting their ship.
In the Nothingness, Q smiled. It wouldn't do for his new plaything to get away so early in the game, now would it? Expanding his awareness, Q became aware of the Black Wednesday's goals and its master...
'Hmm...' he mused. 'Seems I won't get bored waiting for Jean Luc's next trial after all. This Dread Warlord character might be worth some moments of amusement too. And why should I hog this opportunity to myself? Perhaps a few small wagers with some of my extradimensional friends....'
In the Nothingness, Q laughed in glee. It was NOT a nice laugh.
In several universes, nigh-omnipotent cosmic beings and high level deities received a memo from a Star Trek Universe trickster. Many ignored it as a frivolous exercise; others were too busy with local problems. However, a few took notice of this chance to engage in some good old cosmic fun. It seems they're going to be getting an interesting new plaything again.
Once such being was Toltiir, an Elder God of Crossovers and Mischief. Currently in the form of a great black cat, Toltiir looked into Mirmir's Well at the fight between DWFBH and the MunchKING, and smiled.
Like Q, his was NOT a nice smile.
Written by FBHthelizardmage 04-28-2002 02:26 AM
"huh?" Q said and then noticed a official looking letter next to him.
he opened it and read. "dear sir the Gigantor class heavy destoryer-black wednesday is protected by the third clause of the promethean phase tech warranty to wit interference by near omnipotent forces of the multiverse. If you attempt to continue your interference with the systems of the black wednesday then legal action will be taken against you. M smith. god of lawyers. the admin sector, center, phase world.
Q frowned god of lawyers huh? He'd only meet the being once but being sued by it would was not a good idea even for a being so powerful as him, still Q could still have fun with the ship just not mess up its systems.
Q lent back in the void and created him self some popcorn.
On the black wednesday the captain smiled systems where back online. the Dread warlord would be pleased if he bought back a borg cube.
the wednesday swung in towards the cube its main weapons blasted away at the borg shield there none frequency nature rendering the borgs shielding much less effective than against a star fleet system.
as the shield began to fail the 3 heavy phase beamers the ship carried lashed out burning there way through borg drones in the corridors as the sort someone vital like the queen.
the borg cube swung round to put its undamaged shields between it self and the black wednesdays unexpectedly powerful weapons torps flared out from the cube most died in the black wednesdays point defense fire but a few managed to get through stinging the pirate ships shields. The return fire from the Wednesday ripped through the cubes shields and blow chunks out of its hull, again the phase beams fired again they killed drones but failed to find the queen. again the cube swung but this time the heavy destroyer snapped round with it. the Dimensional raiders scanners finally locked down the queen and three heavy phase beams converged on her. The cube went dead. The black wednesday prepared to retrieve it. "captain" one gargoyle on the bridge asked "how are we going to get all this stuff home? "

Another setback for them is the borg drones managing to take one of the armories, assimilating the weapons and armor stored there for their own use. The security details run into drones with power armor and railguns of their own. The battle for the Black Wednsday was turning out to be a serious and bloody conflict.

on the bridge of the wednesday the captain flicked two switches the first took the main computers off line and switched to the back up (so far untouched by the borg assimilation) containment doors begun to go up. the second activated the rift generator in the a joining guard room more power armored gargoyles began to move into the ship.
with near equal number the security teams began to push the slower and less proficient borgs back. rail guns and missile launchers pounded the borg out of corridor after corridor at the same time power was cut to the affected areas of ship slowing the assimilation of the ship.
On the bridge the captain smiled it looked like a blood battle but the master could always make more crew.

So decided, Toltiir turned back to the well and began to do a search. He stopped when the image fell onto a duo of young anime characters handcuffed to each other. Oh this was puurrrfect!
Picking up a pebble from the ground near the well, Toltiir squinted at the image in the well, then tossed it in. The pebble made about 10 skips in the water before it sank in. Smiling in satisfaction, Toltiir sat back and watched the ripples of reality weave and reweave around the action.
In the Star Trek Universe:
The captain of the Black Wednesday was startled from his thoughts by a yell from somewhere nearby.
(off screen): WHERE IN THE SPACE TIME CONTINUUM AM I NOW?!?!?!!
Sure enough, the Eternally Lost Boy and the Bane of Washuu has arrived. Immediately, they were converged upon by both borg drones *and* Black Wednesday officers. Finding themselves among a hostile crossfire, Ryouga did what comes naturally. He picked up Mihoshi and started to run off in a random direction, hoping to get lost again.
However, when he finally stopped, he found himself in one of the half-assimilated and abandoned main enginneering control rooms of the Black Wednesday. Of course, he did not recognize it as such, and only thought he was in an abandoned random tech room. So busy was he in expressing his relief that he paid no attention when Mihoshi dragged him over to the control panels.
Mihoshi was, of course, intrigued by the control panels. They looked like nothing that Washu had, but maybe they can get them home. So thinking, she began to play around with the consol.
All over the Black Wednesday, drones and people began to get transported off. Some onto the borg cube and some onto the dead Starfleet ship. Soon, Mihoshi and Ryouga were the only two beings remaining on board the Black Wednesday.
That was when Mihoshi accidentally hit the dimensional hop buttons.
With a *pop*, the Black Wednesday disappeared. Leaving its erstwhile officers facing off the borg cube in a deactivated Galaxy Class starship.
In the Nothingness:
Q fumed as he saw what Toltiir had done. The dratted cat had gotten around the whole lawsuit threat by sending in mortal proxies to do his dirty works. And what great mortal proxies at that! Two almost complete avatars of fortune and chaos.
But he also saw this display, which took place in *his* territory, for what it was. A challenge from Toltiir. And now, he must come up with a better prank on this DWFBH character, or lose the title of the multiverse's greatest trickster to the Elder God.... again.

Meanwhile, on Oerth, the DreadwarlordFBH's gargoyles were in their camp counting the loot they had gathered. All the gargoyles stationed on that world were attendence, ready to deliver the treasure they had stolen to their master. They had set up a beacon so the Dread Warlord could find his way to their camp site.
Suddenly, above the campsite, the immense bulk of the Black Wednsday materialized into the dimension. Heavily damaged in the battle with the Borg cube, and with its systems scrambled due to the conflict within, it was unable to stabilize its flight. It lurched unsteadily in the air, and then suddenly its engines cut out and it began descending toward the surprised gargoyles. Fast.
In the aftermath of the explosion, there was no discernable trace of the camp or the loot.

seeing there danger the gargoyles on the bridge quickly bought the ships shields up to block the borg ships cutters (at least for a while. )
since most of the gargoyles where still wearing the TW power armor teleporting over to the borg vessel seemed the best option (since magical teleports work through force shields) From there they could use the borgs transdimensional drive (which the borg have remember 8572) to get home the master would be angry at the loss of the wednesday but the alien technology on the borg cube would much more than pay for an new ship.
on the borg cube the collective was most surprised when several hundred gargoyles in power armor and several containers of lethal gas appeared on board. after the boarding area was secure a the wednesdays computer specialist used a damaged drone to down load a virus to the collective. borg defenses began to crumble as the gargoyles gained control of ship systems and drones began to disconnect from the collective.

Lt. Zedar: Captain, our sensor indicate that the Borg Cube appears to be in some form of disarray. Some of it's vital systems are offline and power distribution is intermittent in many portions of the ship.
Captain Blaine: We appear to be in luck. Still, we can't take the chance tha they may recover. Attack pattern Beta. We'll destroy the Cube while we still have the advantage.
At this the five vessels went into attack formation and started bombarding the helpless Borg Cube with phaser bursts and Quantum Torpedo barrages. With neither the Borg nor the Gargoyles in control, no one was able to raise defenses against this onslaught. In a very short time, the Cube was rendered inoperable, and then its power systems overloaded and blew up, leaving the five Federation ships to fly back to the Starbase with the impressive deed of a Borg Cube destroyed on their record.

the star gate had a Iris the ghould who owned this naquiter mine did not want any unwanted quests.
this didn't help at all. the Jaffa guarding the gate we greatly surprised when the gate activated from off world. they were even more surprised when something overoad the controls for the Iris. they had just time to call the main Ghould base and set for defenses when they where terminally surprised by a storm of self targeting anti personnel missiles that emerged from the gate.
As the last blasted jaffa slumped to the floor seven beings stepped or floated out of the gate.
5 were human all dressed in heavy powered combat armor. they all had the same faces (mine)
The other 2 where drones about the size of a human head.
communications beam issued from one of the drones.
In orbit a ghould mother ship hung news of the intrusion on the ground had just reached them and they were on full battle alert. It didn't help them.
In the time it took for the impulses from the eyes of jaffa sensor operator to reach his brain the ship was already dead a pair of culture type CAMs hit it turning the ship into a large cloud of energetic gas.
the NWO SSV (system supremacy vessel) "nice doggy (where a rock?) " pulled into orbit.
"orbit secure said the ship mind."
On the ground the two primary targets were the ghould main planetary base and the Naquiter mine.
The NWO strike teams assigned to this operation took the mine pretty easily the jaffa there were out numbered and massively out gunned.
The base took a little longer. there where more jaffa there. not that it change the out come.
slightly latter the slaves working the mine were freed and set home.
now the Naquiter at the base was about to be sent to SG earth.

Now Dread warlord FBH was back on phase world getting the next phase of his plan ready.
to ensure his continued monetary security he sent three more gargoyle armies to Oearth. then he dispatched three ships (two heavy destroyers and an old Psyclo Main battle unit bought from the battle field earth verse) to the star trek verse he then hired a research team to create a hegmonizing swarm(1) under his control.
another three psyclo MBUs were purchase and docked over phase world. these would serve as DWFBHs personal fleet.
next Dread warlord FBH hired some computer engineers and purchased some micro chips cheep micro chips about a generation out of date by phase world standards but insanely fast and brilliant by the standards of say 20th century earth. the engineers were set the task of installing the chips with a back door so the devices they were set into could be controlled or made not to function.
next DW FBH set about wear to get minions from he would visit his home earth and recruit some of the supers who lived there.
He would visit the galaxy of total annihilation and take some of there technology.
and he would visit wild storm earth and steel the gammora bio reactor and cloning tanks.
he then set out to hire (and create ) him self some minions.
OOC ( ghosti'll recruit bestial in a separate post so you don't have to read all of my other actions before I get to recruiting your mirror self. )
(1) a hegmonising swarm is a term from culture novels. basically they are being who live to make copys of them selves and make others into there swarm.
a good example of a hegmonising swarm is the replicators from SG1 or to a lesser extent the borg from star trek.

Accountant: Boss, I've got some...bad news about the raid on Fort Knox.
The gargoyle quivered in fear as the Dread Warlord turned his gaze toward him, but then gathered up his courage and carried on.
Accountant: According to my calculations, due to the loss and damage of expensive equipment in the battle with the Sentinels, the failure to bring back the projected amount of gold, and the extra expenses incurred by having to use unexpected contingencies, we actually lost money on the raid.
DreadWarlordFBH: Lost money! How can this be?
The gargoyle cringed at this.
Accountant: Well sir, the damage incurred on the Dimensional Rifter alone is going to cost a small fortune to repair. Those things don't come cheap. Then there is the destroyed anti-air missile systems. Not to mention the Naruni Juggernauts and numerous power armor units which were irretreivably lost. It's doubly bad for us due to our neglecting to opt for insurance and extended warranties.
The Dread Warlord frowned at this.
Accountant: Then there are the medical cost for injured personnel. And then there was the matter of much of the gold being scattered or vaporized by stray shots during the battle. Plus the fact that due to a recent flood of gold in Phase World markets by an organization called the New World Order, the price of gold fell to below the value we had estimated in our budgetary forcast. All of these factors put together means we actually came out with a net loss after everything had been calculated. And that's even before taxes.
And with that news the Dread Warlord let out a shout of pure rage and frustration.

Umm... Sir? muttered one of the gargoyles
Yes, oh loyal servant?
It appears that we've... umm... well you see... about the gold....

Well it appears that the damage to the Rifter was more extensive than we'd previously thought...
Well, the gold.. it's... gone.....

Somewhere in the Nothingness, Q fumed. The dratted cat had beat him to it again! How did he do it?!?
At Mirmir's Well, Toltiir blinked. He didn't do that, and he knew that Q didn't either... then who? Huh. It seems we have a new player on the field.
Elsewhere in the Nothingness, an purple-haired trickster priest looked upon his handiwork and smiled. It was a singularly sinister smile.

Unfortunately, DWFBH failed to anticipate the fact that the Star Trek Universe is the LAST place one should get new tech to be invented, especially after the Voyager run. What the research team DID accomplish, though, was the accidental recreation of Barclay's T-cell Syndrome... which then proceeded to sweep through both the research station and all three ships. By the end of the day, nothing was left of the organic beings in the area except lemurs and oversized spiders.
Thus, they were helpless when the new Threat To The Alpha Quadrant Of The Season Or Movie (TM) passed by the area and destroyed them all. By the time Federation forces (not that they matter except for the Enterprise/Defiant) engaged the thing, all that was left of DWFBH's forces in the STU were free-floating particles.
In the Nothingness, Q smiled. Now let's see Toltiir beat THAT.

After much effort spent in scrying for his lost ships, DWFBH finally succeeded in locating one of them.... in several junked pieces on many separate worlds. However, the culprits were nowhere to be found.
At Mirmir's Well, Toltiir smiled again. Toltiir two; Q one.

He then paid a massive fee to the temple to get a full guaranty against further divine tricks guarantied by Mr. smith (god of attorneys). with his fee paid Mr. smith proceeded to slap restraining orders on the trickster gods preventing them from affecting FBH or his operations in any way.
Finally DWFBH returned to his base. now he would have to find a way of making some more moneys but at least he was free of meddling gods.

However, even if Q drops out of the game, it would hardly matter. Quite a few new players have sent out their assent to playing this game already, and most of them have plenty of experience in getting around little things like lawyers...
Smiling, Totiir turned to the figure standing next to him. The person was quite short in stature, and was dressed in a mini-version of Batman's costume. He was looking in to the well in interest as well. I believe it is your turn.

The caravan approaches the guards are alert but relaxed after all who would attack them here at the foot of mount celestia?
Snipers suddenly open up guards and merchants die. gargoyles close assault the remaining caravaners cutting them down to the man. the pack beasts try to bolt but gargoyles quickly catch them. pulling them round and after checking the cargo is what they were after (it is) they lead the first cart into the rift.
It vanishes with a pop and reappears in Dread warlord FBHs warehouse. the rest of the wagons aren't far behind.
federal reserve raid.
this time an open assault isn't the way to do it. no this time no one will even know he's been here dread warlord FBH crouches on a roof near the federal reserve. he carries a strange device that looks like a cross between a high tech Video camera and a laser cannon.
he points the device at the federal reserve on the screen a multicolored image of the reserve appears showing the inside as well as the out side the view moves in to the vaults Dread warlord FBH pushes a button and the device activates shoving out of this dimension and back to his ware house. DWFBH moves on to the next vault.

On the bridge that captain yawns sometimes he would like a bit of excitement.

In one of infinite numbers of underground parking garages throughout the multiverse a gate appeared. The Meddler had looked before hand with his clairsentience in case it was an ambush and detected nothing capable of killiing him. He'd also confirmed his evaluation with multiple sensor sweeps a mile away.
So, having ascertained that the message he had been sent anonomously was not a trap, he stepped through while leaving the gate open for a quick retreat. Once he did so a shadowy figure emerged from the darkness.
Shadowy Figure: Ah, good. I'm glad you came. I was afraid you might be too paranoid to come in person.
Well, your message intrigued me. There's not many people who could locate my secret lair, penetrate my multiple redundant defenses and pin a note on my back without being detected. Whoever you are, you could easily have killed me then and there. So I figured that probably wasn't your intention. What I'm curious about is why you asked to meet here. You could have easily just appeared before me in my lair. Why rendezvous here on the X-files world?
Shadowy Figure: Because, my scheming friend, this is the traditional setting for meetings with mysterious informants. And one thing about humanity that I do appreciate is their sense of the dramatic. So call this an indulgence of my aesthetic sensibilities.
Very well. I assume, of course, being the genre purist you seem to be, you won't reveal your identity to me, so I'll skip that question. So let's cut to the chase and tell me what this is all about.
Shadowy Figure: What this is about is a potential rival of yours. I believe he calls himself the Dread Warlord FBH.
I'm aware of the Dread Warlord and kept an eye on him and his organization.
Shadowy Figure: Ah, but you haven't been watching him as closely as I have. He has initiated a number of operations that you and your organization are not yet aware of. Luckily for you, I'm here to fill you in.
And how do you know what I know and I don't?
Shadowy Figure: Let's just say membership has its privilages. I happen to belong to a very exclusive and elite club. You were almost approached for membership but then after you lost your godhood you no longer fit the minimum qulifications.
At this the Meddler glowered silently
Shadowy Figure: Anyway, all you need to know is on this. He reaches into his coat and pulls out a data crystal I'm sure you'll find this information useful in your endeavors.
And why should I assume any of this is accurate and true? What do you get out of all of this?
Shadowy Figure: Why amusement, of course. What else would I want?
You do know that I will attempt to confirm all of this information. If you are looking to trick me, it's not going to work.
Shadowy Figure: Don't worry, son. You're not the butt of the joke, the Dread Warlord is. With your scheming and manipulating, you're practically an honorary member of my little club.
He hands The Meddler the data crystal
Very well. I'll still have this checked out, but assuming you're on the up and up, thank you very much.
Shadowy Figure: You're welcome. I hope you use what I've given you to its maximum effectiveness.
Oh don't worry, I will. It's a pleasure doing business with you.
The Meddler steps back through his gate and then closes it behind him.
Now alone in the garage, the figure emerges from the shadows, his grinning face illuminated by the dim flourescents above.
Q: Indeed it is, Meddler. Indeed it is.

arm construction air craft 45,6789,0988,823,345 moved along the ridge towards the metal node some 900 meters away. near by dread warlord FBH and a small force of power armored gargoyles watched.
as the construction craft hung over the metal nod. the gargoyles attacked phase beams lashed out passed through the hull and killed the crew quickly
Dread warlord FBH flew over to the now rapidly dropping craft and phased with it into another dimension. the gargoyles followed.
back in one of the Dahaks cavernous hangers dread warlord FBh dropped the craft of near a core construction plane. With these he could replicate every technology of the total annihilation universe he had choose carefully these flyers where equipped with not just the tech to build normal units but star ships and other arm/core super weapons as well.

on board the Dahak DWFBH had set up the second part of this plan a huge technomagical engine which converted the belief energy into a more useful form.

The Meddler was in one of his lairs using his powers to watch one of his many schemes unfold when figure emerged from one of the metal walls and walked up to him.
Robot Techno: The Immutability Enhancer you wanted is finally ready. Here you go.
He hands the Meddler small metal wristband with a display screen and a set of buttons on it.
Excellent, excellent. I trust it fits all my specifications?
Robot Techno: Yup. A capacitor with enough energy stored to allow for a year of continuous use before recharging. That's at regular amplification levels, of course. If you need to crank the power level to take a Death Star shot or something it could probably last four or five hours before running out of juice.
Good. And the security precautions?
Robot Techno: All in there. Adamantium casing. Total insulation from electromagnetic disruption. A quantum stabilizer to keep it from being transformed or beamed off of you. A dimensional anchor to prevent it from being displaced away from you. And the enchanter you hired has attuned it to respond only to you, preventing all forms of remote override, as well as making it highly resistant to all forms of magic.
Amazing. How did your team manage to pack all of that into something so small?
Robot Techno: That was easy. We didn't. The whole thing took up half a warehouse. We just shrank it after we were done assembling it and then put it in the adamantium casing.
Clever. Well, thanks for the good work. You and the rest of the design team will of course be receiving a huge bonus for this. An Imperial Governorship for each of you.
Robot Techno: Thank you. Warren and I were just talking about how cool it would be to have planets of our own.
Well, enjoy them. You all have earned it.

In his lair the Meddler had finished admiring his new Immutability Enhancer and was about to turn his attention back to events at Rick's Place when an incoming call registered on his primary comm console. The Meddler flipped a switch and a hologram of the caller shimmered into existence before him.
Yes, what is it?
Imperial Intelligence Officer: Sir, our sources report that Dread Warlord FBH has just reached the critical point in his plans.
The Meddler sat up.
Just what I've been waiting to hear. Inform our agents in place that it's time for the FBH protocols to be enacted.
Imperial Intelligence Officer: At once your Majesty.
The hologram shimmered into non-existence, only to be replaced by another of a figure dressed in the yellow jumpsuit and hood of an Advanced Idea Mechanics scientist.
Ah, Doctor Williams, the FBH protocols are about to be enacted. I trust everything is ready at your end.
Doctor Williams: Everything is at optimum working order, sir. Our receptors have been attuned and calibrated to receive the incoming energy and channel it into the containment device at your location.
And the device itself?
Doctor Williams: According to our readings, all sensors indicate that it's in perfect condition. We adhered to the exact design specifications of its predecessor when we created it. It should function exactly as desired.
Good, Doctor. I'm glad to here that. I'll let you attend to your end of the operation. You should be receiving the energy any time now.
And with that, he cut off the hologram and sat in his chair, laughing with joy at his impending triumph.
