Inadequate Skillset, part 4Several fresh body parts were laid out on the table. Like many of the bodies lying in the corner of the room, this had a chitinous exoskeleton and many extraneous body parts. This one, however, was much larger than any of the others. To test the strain of a newly designed muscle fiber, the body was made heavy and large. However, there was an unforeseen problem with this design.Inadequate Skillset, part 4 by Zorafin
“One more time.”
Zorael rushed a torrent of water against one of the claws, pushing it towards the body.
“No, too far!”
The claw nearly rolled off the table, passing the body by far too much. Intending to move it more gently, he attempted to lift it an orb of water.
It sank, and fell right out of the orb.
He tried it again, pushing the water up to create a counter current against the claw’s weight.
The claw made it halfway across the table before it popped right out of the orb.
He switched the water to a dis
Inadequate Skillset, part 3A simple creature, nearly a foot in length, lay on the crystalline table in the center of the room. Its outer flesh was hard and brittle, colored a reddish brown. However, many open wounds on its top showed that the flesh underneath was soft and vulnerable. Its most striking characteristic was its legs, numbered around half a dozen. Each leg had many segments to them. Along with its legs, it had many appendages underneath its body, serving an unknown purpose.Inadequate Skillset, part 3 by Zorafin
The room had changed little since the years before. The glass separating the air inside with the waters outside have become perfectly clear, seemingly blending in perfectly with the waters themselves. The pile in the corner, cleaned of the muck it had before, was now littered with tiny bodies. And in another corner of the room was a small vial, containing a tiny worm suspended in water.
Zorael hurried along with his construction. This creature, with its many segments, wa
Inadequate Skillset, part 2Tiny droplets of water soaked with a sickly pink substance gently weaved around the body of a tiny creature. Large chunks of it were missing, and it betrayed no movement. Each drop of water was placed on its body in a precise motion, causing the items in the water to bind to the creature as the water was evaporated away. The rest of its body was formed, as piece by tiny piece was slowly added on. Its body lengthened as dull nerve and loose flesh was formed into a tube. Finally, the weaving stopped as the tube of flesh ended in a tiny point.Inadequate Skillset, part 2 by Zorafin
Zorael’s workshop has suffered very little change in the centuries since its formation. The only real movements are the flow of materials between the two piles in the corner, and the scraping and reforming of ice on the walls. Pressure, time, and idle hands have crystallized the once coarse walls to give a better view of the outside waters. The table in the middle, while structurally the same, ha
