The Nuggie Revolution
At some point since the First Word War and the dawning of the New Age of Literomancy, House Felis had a grand feast in The Shallows. Someone left some discarded chicken nuggets in the Void, and they sank down to the Netherlayers, as objects left in the Void are prone to do. There, they mingled with the fell energies of the Pit, and spawned into a self-aware species of moldy chicken nuggets, with arms, legs, and tentacles, who can respawn themselves through some sort of budding process. The self-aware Nuggies soon realized they were trapped in the Void, and, perhaps goaded by some instinctive awareness that they come from physical reality, they first made war on the Demons of the Pit in order to establish their own territory; then began fighting for access to the physical Realm. Lord Galakrond, friend to the Demons of the Pit, recognized the threat that the Nuggies posed, and quickly enlisted the aid of any and all other Voidtouched Literomancers he could find. The Voiders, perhaps being less chaotic and disorganized than the Demons, soon assumed command of their combined forces.
George and I have a long standing...understanding. I try to kill him with a frying pan, he tries to hide from me after one of my tentacles smacked him into a wall.
...is that blood?...oh wait no...it's ketchup.
Oh, he's fine. He's just currently doing his thing. Y'know, Voider stuffs and things. The nuggies and whatnot. I think he's covered in crispy nugget goo or whatever. Totally fine.The Nuggies have weaponized many of the components of their particular type of fast food. They sling frying oil and crispy nugget goo like boiling oil. They use ketchup to blind and confuse their opponents, and to obscure their injuries so that their enemies don't have a clear idea of the rate of attrition when fighting them. Iron seems to be effective as a weapon against the Nuggies, prompting Princess Sunny to make use of her frying pan as a weapon, and Sable Aradia to frequently use her iron mace, Fluffy. Items that are said to have special properties against spirit entities seem to cause extra harm to Nuggies, and prevent them from regenerating: such as jade, charoite, iron and silver. Items specifically designed for use against spirits, such as lead-sealed boxes and flawless crystals, are not effective against them, however. Much of the conflict centers around control of the Demonic Spawning Rocks in the Pit, the all-important healing and respawning resource that assures that troops on both sides can be replenished. Portals are also a highly-contested resource. The Nuggies cannot create portals, but every time one is formed by a Voider, they attempt to seize control of it. They seem willing to throw unlimited numbers of troops at this effort. Perhaps once they seize control of a portal, they will be able to harness its use, and spread that ability to others of their kind. Recently, Sable Aradia has begun making use of a new strategy; she brings dark mirrors into the Void to use as escape portals, which can be immediately shattered by her allies as soon as she has crossed back over to the physical Realm, preventing the Nuggies from being able to use it.
Nooooo Dazz, leave the Nuggies in peace! It's like descending upon a less civilized planet and ruining their growth!
...don't encourage the Nuggies please. Me and George have...conversations that usually include a very large mallet, me screaming obscenities and him cursing me in Crisplin.Strangely, a number of A-Voiders have developed sympathy for the Nuggies. Whether this is because they think the Nuggies are a gag, are unaware of their savage and brutal nature, or simply because they're sort of cute remains unclear.
