Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part4 Part 5

The scientists quickly organized a team to remove the crystals and transport them to their laboratory. The Snargfargle had to remain somewhat distance from the crystals, for when the Staff of Ages he had been brought too close, one crystal had emitted a searing yellow beam of light that had pierced a fist-sized hole completely through the heart of a mighty redwood tree, after which it had exploded into dust.

It didn't take long for the Snargfargle and the scientists to draw up the plans to create a weapon array, which they hoped would be powerful enough to defeat the horde command center and seal the rift. On three islands would be built three towers, at the tops of each tower would be placed a crystalline matrix. The crystalline matrices would be tuned to emit a their energy beams only when the Snargfargle brought the Staff of Ages to the central tower and touched it to the key matrix. It was hoped that only one tower would be enough to seal the rift but three would be constructed just in case.

The Horde was not going to make the construction of these towers easy and battles raged for months while the towers were being constructed. Many a time did the elite warriors of humanity, the @GhostSwordsman, the @HazardDrake and the Snargfargle fight side-by side as they built and defended the towers. While the humans and the Hazard Drake would never be exactly friends, they did develop a mutual respect for each other. In fact, if the truth be told, even the mighty Hazard Drake was more than a bit in awe of the Snargfargle and his staff and wanted him as an ally much more than as an enemy.

Finally, when all hope seemed lost and all that was left was to die with honor, the towers were completed. The Snargfargle and the scientists then used the array to to destroy the main horde and close the portal from whence they had emerged. In the process, the crystals disintegrated and were lost (that is all but a single forgotten shard, which @Dr_Venture was to find thousands of years later). However, sub-hordes of the army of darkness remained to ravish the land and it was several hundred more years before the Snargfargle and the ghost warrior society he commanded (and who were kept alive for all those years by their proximity to the Staff of Ages) were able to exterminate the last of the hordes. Some say that a few denizens of darkness escaped and still lurk in the darker regions of the continent to this day.

The victory was a Pyrrhic one, however, as the war decimated the once-vibrant civilization to the extent that it never recovered. Although the Snargfargle and the few remaining philosophers and scientists tried to keep the culture alive, with the great libraries and centers of learning gone and the need to eke out an existence at the forefront of everyone's mind, the few remaining human bands soon reverted back to neolithic tribes. These tribes then took new names for themselves and developed new legends and mythologies. The ghost warriors too settled down and the Snargfargle left to live alone in the forest. In another thousand years, even in the oldest tales of the descendants of the ghost warriors, there was no mention that their ancestors had once been the protectors of Atlantis.

Ghostdog's tribes of warrior hounds were amassed. The finest four legged army ever assembled. Almost 100,000 strong from all parts of the realm, the dark forest, the wastelands and the forbidden zone. All pack leaders and Ghostdog still stand ready for the call from SnargFargle and HazardDrake.
