( okay, so I’m going to have Sloth go overboard and exhaust the energy they have, rather than just have greed take over since I feel it raises the stakes if Sin doesn’t have sloth for a while since they can just f--- with time and apathy)
Sloth gritted their teeth and raises the Apathy barrier to cover the area around the ship as well, making a mobile apathy range.
They were applying so much magic that the water affected by their abilities lost all colour, and this effect started to seep onto the wood of the boat as well.
Sloth’s physical appearance began to twist much like Wrath’s had previously.
Arwyn, though she doesn't even dance, gets tired out and sits out for the rest of the shanty. In contrast, Finn doesn't seem to run out of energy. Aspen doesn't sing anymore but he does claps to keep with the beat. He thought that this was quite amusing.
While Finn dances away, Arwyn notices the gray seeping into the ocean around them and the boat. She immediately becomes alarmed and looks at Sin (though, she supposes it's not Sin at the moment). "Yo, uhh.. are you.. don't exhaust yourself," Arwyn says, standing up.
( if yall are okay with it, Sloth can temporarily affect your ocs? Their apathy brings around a feeling of emptiness / nihilism. I plan to have them fade out next turn so it won’t last for long, but if they’re affected they could slowly start to turn grey?)
Unlike with Wrath’s sharper and more dangerous look, Sloth had taken on a softer more subdued appearance. There horns were long and curled, pointing downwards like a floppy rabbits ears.
Their eyes were he same grey as the ocean with distinct clockwork markings.
Their arms and neck all held the same runes as Wrath had held, inky , black and seemingly spelling out their sin ina. Different language. Infernal most likely.
Their white hair had become grey, and was continuing to darken.
Their skin had taken in a greyish tint.
Sloth seemed to be unable to hear anyone. It seemed that right now, the only thing that could grab their attention was heir true name, and only one who spoke infernal would know what that happened to be.
The water had lost all colour, and a few fish that had been swimming nearby gave up, and just Stopped moving, floating to the surface to die.
They recovered when apathy ceased being applied to them, as the longer you’re held under it, the longer you remain affected until you stop greying.
Creatures of a lower intelligence were affected much more quicker,
The crow from before seemed to be trying to disrupt the Latham but it flopped to the floor of he boat, alive but unable to move,
Arwyn is immediately affected by whatever magic is seeping from Sloth. The grayness shoots up her arms and legs, but then starts to go slow as it reaches her center. She is filled with a sense of nihilism, even more than usual. "We're all gonna die," Arwyn says, just thinking out loud. She sinks back into her seat dejectedly.
Aspen straight up turns gray. However, he has no soul and little emotion so the apathy effect doesn't really change his personality at all. "I don't know what's happening but I guess I'm not opposed to it," Aspen says casually.
Finn doesn't get affected immediately. In fact, the grayness just barely oozes into his fingertips. "Guys? What's wrong? Sin, please stop this," Finn says, waving his hands in front of their face and jumping to get their attention.
Inside their soul space, one lock fell away from the hidden door, as the soul sword retrieved one fragment,
However no one was able to force Sloth out. They were far too engrossed.
“...nothing matters.” Sloth muttered as they began to tire. Their apathy completely flattered after killing several fish, and possibly some weaker monsters.
Sloth passed out, utterly drained.
Greed stepped in to assess the damage.
“ s---.” They said. “...f---.”
( the effects would slowly fade out depending on will level.
The higher he will the longer the fade out?
For an estimate in Sin’s tale it would likely be around ten minutes while sloth is this weakened, which could be 3 turns?Medium is 2 and low is 1?
"Cussing is baaad," Finn says admonishingly to Sin. The grayness is gone from his fingertips about as fast as Sloth had passed out.
Arwyn is still gray on her arms and legs, though it's painstakingly slowly starting to recede. "It's all my fault, all of my old teammates died because of me," Arwyn curls up into a ball to hide her face and to sulk.
"God, you're such a pessimist," Aspen says to her. He's still gray, it doesn't seem to be fading.
Greed hissed at the water, they knew something was approaching and they were five seconds away from straight up diving into the water and attacking.
The reason they were aware was because they had stolen a trackers soul a long time ago. So they were always aware,
