    "Oh, I'll show you the burn..." Zurg growled as he felt his upper-right lip corner twitch. Ohhh, make a fool out of him, will she? We'll see about that!

    The Scarab, meanwhile, got another good face-full of sand and it was none too pleased at how the battle was progressing. It was time to wow the crowd and gain the upper hand.

    And it did this by splitting.

    With a clean snap, its lower half left its upper, and the Scarab made circles around the other robot, talons still swiping at the damaged hind legs before both darted back into the safety of the sand.

    "Whoa," Jo marveled. That was a nifty trick. She'd have to implement that in future schematics. It was mightily impressive. It probably had two drive cores which--but she cut her thoughts off sharply and focused on the battle at hand again. It wouldn't do for her enthusiasm in mechanics to make her attention drift.

    It appeared as if her robot still had the upper hand. Despite being attacked simultaneously from two sides, it managed to keep out of harm's way, long enough for the now split-Scarab to burrow beneath the ground again.

    Her robot paced to the left, then to the right. Its sensory plating unfurled as it whirred, contemplating its next move. It would pause occasionally, tilt its head, making clicking sounds, and after a few moments, it loped over to the center of the arena, then thrust its fists into the ground, causing another tumultuous tremor to shake the arena.

    Uh-oh.

    Sparks flew as the Scarab halves popped out, both of them landing onto the hard sand with a back-breaking thud. But they didn't mind, or rather, it didn't. The Scarab re-attached itself now, and it was beyond peeved. While a robot was commonly perceived as emotionless, this one wasn't. Just look who programmed it.

    With an arch of its back, the robot bounced into the air, its talons fully extended and it latched on its opponent's back, digging and trying its hardest to pry the rusted plating away so it could rip out the weak stuff.

    Arrow yawned atop the sunlit rim of the arena, smacking his dry maw and slowly trailing his gaze across the field. The robot war had earned quite a bit of attention it seemed, not all from engineers. Aside the dragon, hovered a small robotic orb, it's blue eye focusing on the battle below.

    "So what do you think, Sranko?" inquired Arrow to the mechanical eye. The optic merely bzzd as it focused on the competitors. Small projection devices on either side of the orb displayed holographic rotating stats and readings of the constructs. To which the red dragon "mmm'd" and "ahh'd" in accordance.

    "Well it should be interesting then" he acknowledged without feeling. Arrow yawned again and rested his head in his claws. One eye kept open to the ensuing battle.

    The robot screeched, its pain sensors flaring, as the Scarab attached itself to its back and began to tear and claw into it. In a desperate move to prevent it from reaching its core, it flipped over and slammed its back into the ground, hoping to crush the Scarab beneath its combined weight and flatten it against the ground.

    But the Scarab had anticipated this. After all, didn't I say it was a learning robot several posts ago? It had come to realize that this robot was all physical and little else. And it could work with this.

    Easily.

    The moment the large robot had tried to body slam it, the Scarab jumped off and like an elegant diver, it contorted its shape and seamlessly slipped into the sand; a ripple barely created from its unearthly entry.

    Now back in the sand, it began to shift and change tactics. If it could not master the world above, it was going to drag the robot down into the world below.

    With sickening speed, it latched its talons onto the robot and attempted to take it down with it.

    (First die for attack, second coin for dragging)

    The robot tried to resist, but the Scarab's hold was too strong; it dragged it into the earth after it.

    Its sensory perception greatly diminished in these confined spaces, it desperately tried to release itself from the Scarab's hold, flailing by punching and kicking.

    "Hmph...I can't see a thing...." Zurg grumbled to himself nervously. What was going on down there? Was he winning? Was Jo's robot defeated? What was happening?!

    Back in the sand, the Scarab felt something important disconnect, but it paid no need. Victory was close; oh so close. 'Swimming' away from the flailing robot, it moved with ease, practically doing circles. Its attacks were a blur as it swiped and picked at the robot, playing and teasing like a cat did with a mouse.
