((A lot of bad cr*p is about to go down...))
One of the shadows clawed at the gauntlet, not pulling it off but still managing to scratch it slightly. Not a great idea.
Out of that one, tiny scratch, arcane energy began to pour out slowly, like a fog. It sizzled lightly through the shadows, eventually reaching the ground, where it spread out across, covering a few square feet.
Suddenly, it burst with glowing energy. It spread out rapidly, covering the entire field, beginning to distort into strange positions. It flew up into the sky, forming a massive raincloud that hailed, rained, and struck with lightning all at once. Across the ground, the earth itself began to shatter, burst into flames, have torrential winds blow across it, and be covered in a beaming stream of light. Nothing was left untouched.
Jay drew a sharp breath. "The...the soul of the gauntlet...can't let it escape..."
He tried to reach for the crack, but he wouldn't be able to cover it unless the torrent of elemental energy destroyed the shadows. It had already struck down the golem; maybe it was enough to stop the shadows.
((Let go or we ALL DIE.))
