Look at this gorgeous art that Sophie commissioned from Claudia Cangini. It is amazing. Front: Ram the Holy Killer; behind him, from left to right: Rahi the Relic Bearer, Merit the Trickster, and Kanta the Mage. Sophie writes more about the commissioning process and how it makes for a wonderful gift to friends here.
The Celestial Armies Clash
In heaven, our heroes found three armies blocking them from the tower on which the False Kanta perched.
Kanta (the True) used her sitar to summon forth an army of Indra’s golden soldiers.
Rahi met a mighty demon in single combat. Felling the beast but suffering a mortal wound in the process.
Ram leapt upon the infantry with ferocity that would make his goddess smile had she been there to see it.
Merit out maneuvered the archers causing them to fire upon the priests and turn False Kanta’s forces against each other.
When the battle was coming to an end, Kanta, who had learend the name of the celestial winds, called them to lift her up to top of the tower where she finally faced her opposite self!
