The Guardian raised an arm to defend against the ice beam, which became encased in a block of ice. A sharp movment of the elbow shattered the majority of the ice, only for the rest to be melted off by a tongue of flames from Shinsei. The scorched,
heavily fractured torso of the Guardian was splintered into several large chunks by 401's bullet, which promptly lost their hold of each other, and the Guardian fell apart.
"Very impressive" The etherial voice of the Archstiana spoke. "I certainly have faith in you, although I know not what you will face." His translucent, blue hand gestured towards the misty pool below him. "Being one with a Stianakind spirit gives comes with it's perks, such as being able to harness celestial energies. This below me is a lunar pool. Not only is it a mode of transport, but it will restore what strength you lose on your journey. It's not currently powerful enough to get you to this... entity that threatens us, but it can take you to the gatekeepers. Tell them I sent you, and they will unleash the full potential of the lunar pool. He paused for a moment. "Their names are Aldernaris and Jorthin. The first is a strong,
aggressive man who fights with his heart. The other is a more frail, but wise man. Both, I imagine, will want to test your strength as heroes, and both will provide you with useful tools for your journey. You may choose who you wish to visit first,
simply step into the pool once you have decided... oh" He hastily added "Could one of you please hold onto this Lunar Amulet of Convenience? It's terribly useful."

I'm with stupid
