The giant turtle slowly grabbed an entire small tree and chewed it up before it walked back out of the cave and swam away.
"brilliant, Now we're stuck here" Death said.
"Unless there's another way out" the tiny bloodstalker swung around the cave on silk for a few seconds, when she dropped back down, she said "nothing, that was the only entrance"
"We'll have to wait for another of those turtle thingies" Mischief said.
"I think it's called a megachelon, I heard about them from a bloodstalker who travelled across the biomes with a survivor"
A pack of what looked like very spiky pulmonscorpius crawled across the floor towards them.
"What are tho-" Mischief started to say, before he was paralysed by one of the beasts, Death caught a few in silk, but soon one of them stung her and she immediately curled her tentacles into a sphere to stop the creatures attacking more.
The venomous monstrosities scuttled towards the tubby mushroom creature, which was trying to disguise itself as a normal mushroom, several stung the little thing.
The mushroom started making an odd whining noise, then it clutched at it's temples as if it had suddenly developed a headache and started inhaling so much air it actually inflated until was nearly spherical,
It's cap started to split and crack, the mushroom creature made a slight squeaking noise before it's cap exploded, spraying the most massive explosion of fungal spores Mischief had ever seen through the air, it was even bigger than the spore clouds of the golden capped spidershroom that had fought for the master of the bog.
The pulmonscorpius creatures made chittering screams and exploded into patches of fungus, all of which instantly came to life as even tinier versions of the mushroom creature.
The original mushroom creature, now with cracks around the top of it's stalk and totally lacking the red, white spotted cap that it had had before faceplanted it's blue cylinder and was sucked inside.
Actually, moeder does not come from the German word mörder, it comes from the also German word. . . Moeder, which means mother, obviously because of moeder's army of little mini-moeders that are confirmed to be her offspring similarly to the broodmother lysrix and the crystal wyvern queen.
The ferox fire chapter 6

Mischief found himself in a huge mechanical looking space made from the same black metal as the artefact of paranoia, with luminescent blue lines running through the floor.
In the centre there was a quite small podium with a few oddly shaped grooves and sockets on the top,
"The podium thing's grooves and sockets match the tongues and knobs on the bottom of the artefact" Death said.
"Maybe we have to put the artefact onto the podium then"
Death scuttled over to the podium and put the artefact on top,
It fit perfectly over the podium, the blue glow of the room turned somewhere between turquoise and lime, and a portal opened where the podium and the artefact were before, Mischief and death stepped through it, into the ocean biome.
The ferox and bloodstalker stepped out of the portal onto a small island with many shrubs, bushes and mushrooms, but no trees, that was surrounded with a swarm of small tropical birds.
"I wonder what that blue thing the biome master gave us is"
"Let's find out" Death replied.
Taking the cylinder out of her claws with one tentacle, Death tossed it lightly onto the ground, and in an explosion of hexagons,
A small, pale creature with a toadstool cap above it's huge brown eyes, a small smiling mouth, and incredibly short arms and legs on it's little tubby body appeared.
"That. . . Is not what I was expecting" Death said.
As Mischief and Death were discussing what the strange tubby mushroom creature's purpose was, the island they were on lurched suddenly.
"What was that?!" Mischief and Death both said.
The island started to sink, Mischief clung onto a branch of a shrub, Death silked herself onto the ground, and the mushroom creature made a yelping noise and dove back into it's blue cylinder.
The island sunk deep below the water, luckily there seemed to be some sort of air vents on it and breathable bubbles were rising up from tiny cracks in its surface.
The island sank deeper and deeper, before it abruptly changed direction and swam into large hole in a rise in the seafloor,
Before coming out in a large crystal-lit cavern filled with plants and trees.
Mischief hopped off the edge of the island,
and Death followed carrying the mushroom creature's cylinder.
On the ground, Mischief could see that they had not been on an island, but rather the back of a huge turtle with six
Legs and four eyes.
I'm confused, every time I try to write chapter eight of the ferox fire, it claims I'm asking for 🔼s, but I'm not, the most consistent thing it seems to think is asking for 🔼s is the mention of arthropods, this is weird.
