The Plane of Fire

I thought I could stand the heat, but I wasn't expecting this...

I knew the place well, my confidence had built... big mistake.

It was eleven days after my birthday, the fifth of Aenterki. The year was 44NM. I had just picked up a crystalline amulet from the astral plane, and was heading out to the fire plane to fight for a while, to hone in my skills and to generally experience myself. I had done this many times before, it was a routine run for me.
I had grown attached the firey ground and the endless deep blood red sky. I was always alone there, which made it so much easier to concentrate. The air was always still, but not too dry. It was almost perfect. I had been killing throughout the night, exceeding my normal run. It was the seventeenth now, and I was getting a little bit tired. My mana orbs were running low, and I only had a small part of a single vial of salve left. "One more chaos knight," I told myself, "then I'll leave and get some rest."
I was heading back for the temple, where I could leave, when I came across a chaos knight. Grinning, I took the knight down no sweat. He never touched me, and his lifeless body dropped to the ground, bloody. I picked what I could off the corpse, and then left it to fry.
I could see the temple, just a bit to the northwest. I trotted on to it, and I was almost there. I wiped the sweat from my brow, and took the crystal amulet into my hand. All of a sudden this small gnomish creature came out from behind the temple. I turned to stare at its firey red eyes, and it grinned at me. I turned to run, I had seen the thing before, and it was not something you ever want to meet.
Raising his hands, a gargantuan flare was hurled towards me. I couldn't outrun it, I tried with all my might. It connected right with the back of my torso, and I watched as my legs and body went sailing forward as my head stayed behind. It was one of the most horrible things I had ever seen, and luckily it didn't last for long. My mind had left my body before my head had hit the ground, and I was back in Cabeiri as an ethereal presence. I shivered for a second to think about what had just happened. I sighed and headed off to get my things, another death had taken me.
