    Quick question- with National Novel Writing Month coming up, would it be possible to use the word count widget in my signature as proof of words written? Just asking because the more separate places I'm trying to upload stuff, the more uploading will cut into time when I could be writing...

    Ooo, awesome. I'll use the challenge to help bug me to do NaNo if I get round to doing it. Still not sure if I'll have time, but I might try it.

    The UKitP meetup is no excuse for not writing- as somebody who is hoping to get to it... If I make it, I may well still be writing on the friday night (or parts of it)

    Can I enter something retroactively? I just found this challenge today, but I wrote parts II and III of this Dungeons and Dragons work in the past few days. The wordcount for those is 2286, and it even includes the fire theme!

    (I hope I'm reading the rules on "works-in-progress" right, 'cause the WLD is my only current project that's able to be published right now).

    Sure. Works done in the week of your entry counts towards that week (but you can't go further back).

    "works in progress" is in place to prevent sketches and barely-strung-together written works. But 250 words out of a larger piece definitely counts. We can't have people write six novels every week

    Welcome aboard to you, too!

    Finished about a case file and a half. This one was much shorter, too. Case File 8 was only 1400 words, so it's good I started on 9.

    History:
    Alexander Patrus Seraphiel Sky was born to a relatively poor family within the Kingdom of Dawnstar in the year 297. From a young age, Sky showed interest in doing good, and potential for becoming a protector of the realm, picking up the basics of swordsmanship by watching the Knights of Dawn when they would train. At the age of twelve, he started his apprenticeship. He was recognized for his drive to good and to improve himself, and in 311, at the age of fourteen, Sky was selected by Knight Commander Gabriel Castitas Virtue to graduate apprenticeship a year early and become the Knight Commander’s personal squire.

    Sky became known even as a squire, joining Knight Commander Virtue on a range of notable events. It has been noted by his peers among the squires, many of them now Knights of Dawn, that Sky was an inspiration to be looked up to, even among those several years older. Sky rode alongside the Knight Commander and the Knights of Dawn into a number of missions generally beyond the expectation of squires, on both his own and his Knight Commander Virtue’s insistence.

    In 314, Sky passed the Morning Trial and became the youngest Knight of Dawn in the history of the kingdom, at the age of 17. As one of the Knights of Dawn, Sky pursued his duties with a fervor and righteousness unseen even among other holy knights, tempered with a compassion and mercy he was renowned for throughout Dawnstar. In a number of different encounters, Sky was able to find merciful solutions to scenarios other knights could were unable to peacefully solve.

    The most notable event within Sky’s early career is the revealing of the Twilight Dragoons. This organization had existed within the Kingdom of Dawnstar in secret for approximately a century, operating outside the eyes of the royal family and the Knights of Dawn, carrying out vigilante acts deemed as justified by their order. Sky discovered the Twilight Dragoons through another Knight of Dawn, Sir Michael Aurum, as many of the Knights also served within this secret order, attempting to bring their own ideas of justice to those they felt were not fully dealt with by the kingdom’s laws. Sky joined the Twilight Dragoons, completing this secret order’s training so as to learn as much as possible about their methods and their leaders. In 316, after six months in their ranks, Sky revealed the Twilight Dragoons to the world, capturing seven other Knights of Dawn and presenting them as vigilantes to the crown, including the four primary leaders of the Dragoons, with extensive evidence to back his claims. In doing, Sky also freely offered himself to face the same trial and charges as a member of the Twilight Dragoons, despite his not having carried out any of their missions during his time in the secret order. The seven Knights, as well as a number of other revealed members were tried and sentenced appropriately, most of whom willingly accepted their sentences, which as with most in the Kingdom of Dawnstar, centered around imprisonment and productive labor to benefit the kingdom. The royal family refused to put Sky on trial, deeming his actions to be entirely within keeping of a true Knight of Dawn. Sky however, still joined the other Twilight Dragoons in simple manual labor regularly over the next decade when he was not acting as a Knight, serving out an equivalent sentence of his own volition.

    In 319, Knight Commander Gabriel Castitas Virtue resigned at the age of 59, and the position of Knight Commander was won in divine trial by Sky, to the celebration of his peers among the Knights of Dawn. It was universally acknowledged by the Knights that there was no better leader among their number. Over the course of his over twenty years as Knight Commander, Sky accomplished an incredible range of feats of heroism, primarily within Dawnstar but many with even worldwide significance, including traveling to the Empire of the Sands to serve as a general during the First Demon War in the year 329. In addition to being one of the most capable warriors of the world, Sky was renowned as a talented channeler of divine magic, and over the course of his numerous encounters, duties, and adventures, he is known to have acquired a variety of other capabilities.

    As with most Knight Commanders, Sky became very close to the royal family, often serving as champion, escort, and royal protector, as well as a personal friend to the king and queen. After the heir was born in 330, Sky even supported her schooling as heir to the throne, as well as teaching her the basics of swordplay as she grew older.

    Over the course of his service as Knight Commander, Sky had taken several squires, and trained them to full Knights of Dawn. In 334, Sky took another squire, a young woman by the name of Aurora Caritas Mera, and as usual committed a large amount of his time to her training, becoming slightly less active among the rest of the Knights of Dawn. In 339, Mera fought alongside Sky in Dawnstar during the Second Demon War, with the exception of a number of forays made by Sky alone into enemy lines.

    Also of note was one assassination attempt made during the war against the royal family. Through methods not known, a demon reached the royal chambers and attacked the three members of the royal family, however Sky was present at the time, and was able to kill the assassin.

    Shortly after these events, the Second Demon War came to a close. Aurora Caritas Mera passed the Morning Trial and became a knight, however though he was no longer training a squire, Sky remained somewhat detached from the Knights, spending more time directly protecting the royal family.

    In the evening on the 24th day of the 7th month in the year 340, Alexander Sky walked out of the royal palace. People noted he was extremely reserved and serious, much more so than Sky usually acted, and did not respond to any comments or greetings. He was wearing his full Knight Commander’s gear, with his sword, armor, and shield all spattered with fresh blood. Sky left the palace on foot, walking to an unknown destination.

    Within a few hours of this event, the royal family was found in their room, dead. All three had been struck by simple lethal blows from a large blade, fitting the description of the Knight’s sword of Alexander Sky.

    The following morning, Sky arrived on foot, still in his full Knight Commander’s equipment and still bloodied at the Lock prison facility. He stated outright that he had killed the king, queen, and princess of the Kingdom of Dawnstar the previous evening, and offered himself for imprisonment in the Lock. Knight Commander Alexander Patrus Seraphiel Sky was tried and found guilty of 3 counts of Regicide, and was sentenced to life in prison within the Lock prison facility. Sky’s squire, Aurora Caritas Mera has taken it as her responsibility to determine the reason for Sky’s murders, which he refuses to explain, and has taken the role in the prison of Lock Scholar 8.

    Known Capabilities:
    Alexander Sky is an extremely capable warrior, armed or unarmed, and with a variety of weapons, however his specialization is with his Knight Commander’s greatsword and his shield, which he is capable of wielding together to great effect. His tactics and military strategy are widely renowned, having served as general in both Demon Wars. It is also believed that the general and gradual influence of the divine which supports Knights of Dawn, gradually built over a period of twenty years, has left him stronger and faster than an average mortal human.

    Sky is also known to be a highly capable channeler of divine magic, able to heal, harm, and interact with spirits in the same capacities of an experienced cleric.

    Scholar Mera has reported that Sky also has a slight hand for arcane magic, primarily defensive, but between his interactions with such a large number of arcane beings and objects of enormous varieties, he does have some capacity.

    Sky’s training as a Twilight Dragoon is also of note, as it provides him with certain covert operations capabilities, including training in stealth, ambushes, and poisons. It is believed that as a Twilight Dragoon, Sky also has built a natural immunity to common poisons.






    History:

    The first information regarding the Alias case was unearthed by Independent Investigator Jacob Havoc. In the year 329, a wealthy businessman by the name of Ermine Calx within the Spire city of Peak was found killed, with his soul damaged in an unrecognized way, the whole of his positive emotional range seemingly violently removed. After a full investigation, Spire Authority filed the case as unresolved, and Investigator Havoc was hired to further pursue the situation. After about one month’s research, Investigator Havoc was unable to produce any further information regarding the case.

    Two months later, a second case, the death of a Spire politician named Lorian Black, was filed unresolved and passed by a relative to Independent Investigator Jacob Havoc. His investigations discovered a similar damage caused to the soul as in the Calx murder, with the victim in this case seeming to have lost the capacity to interpret language. Havoc linked the cases and began a more extensive investigation into the apparent pattern. After undertaking several further investigations of several other unresolved Spire Authority cases, Havoc concluded several other unresolved murder cases filed during this two month period followed the same pattern.

    Havoc’s investigations continued over the course of the following year, finding numerous additional cases occurring following this same pattern of soul damage. Havoc eventually linked the events to a highly illegal procedure referred to as “Soul Grafting”. The particular damage pattern observed in each case was in keeping with the theoretical results of this highly illegal procedure first developed in the year 292 by a pair of independent medical researchers, Jonathan Kale and Xerxes Sveran.

    When Kale and Sveran discovered potential methods to interact surgically with the human soul, the two concealed their research, considering the potential ramifications to be serious enough they chose to avoid publishing. In 301, Xerxes Sveran was reported missing, and no details regarding his disappearance were ever recorded. In 315, Jonathan Kale was killed in a laboratory accident, although some theorize the man’s death was not accidental, but a suicide. Kale and Sveran’s research regarding surgical interactions with souls was unearthed by the team of doctors investigating their papers, including a young doctor Amadeus Conte, who would later go on to become the head surgeon of the Halls of Hope.

    Havoc continued tracking the cases of soul grafted murders, keeping records and working alongside the Spire Authority. Over the course of the next two years, Havoc began working further and further on his own, focusing a large portion of his time upon this case. Eventually, after extensive research and several possible encounters with the killer, Havoc concluded that while there was a single killer, they were capable, by methods unknown, of changing their appearance. In 332, Havoc stopped all other investigation work, focusing on the so named Alias case to the exclusion of all other research, turning down all other cases offered to him.


    As far as "fiery intensity" I'm not sure if I meet the theme. Both Alexander Sky and Jacob Havoc are fairly intense, but not necessarily in a fiery passion kind of way?

    1,891 words of various things. Which, this time, aren't nicely separated into different quote tags, just split with dashes inside one, since I'm simply not up to doing that right now, what with the forum search being down and everything.

    Fortunately, to avoid burning them as well, the long skirts they had been wearing had been set out of the, quite literal, line of fire, as, despite the clear impossibility of their doing so, a pair of girls, plainly siblings, often known as "The Mirror Girls" for their opposite colorations, stepped out of the patterns on the clothing, smiling at the other two as they did...

    Specimen's withdrawal has made it difficult to ascertain details about her history, especially the period after she received her squad assignment, and the other members of said squad, as such questions generally lead to a near-complete shutdown, often followed by at least a day of total inactivity, including eating and drinking; attempts to force answers, whether with pain, physical enticements, or emotional lures, simply caused her to retreat deeper into her shell, with each attempt having a longer period before she returned to her normal state, likely progressing towards a permanent state of effective catatonia.

    The one exception to this was when one of the specimens taken with her (#1251) was subjected to intense pain each time a question was not answered, or was answered in a deliberately unhelpful way; however, as the variance was such that it resulted in the examiner having numerous bones broken, with #1257's attempt to eviscerate him only being prevented by the timely intervention of several guards (some of whom were also seriously injured while attempting to subdue her), and no new information was forthcoming as a result, the method was deemed overly hazardous, and likely to, if continued, especially in such a way that #1257 would not have access to her interrogator, cause her to become, at best, prone to fits of violence,

    As such, all lines of questioning as concern this period more than obliquely have been discontinued, in order to maintain the specimen's viability as an object of study, and for the protection of staff and other specimens.

    Despite the infeasibility of direct interrogation on this period, we are not entirely without information; #1257's increased reticence seems to indicate that her general withdrawal is tied to events that took place during this time, likely related to her squad because of her reluctance to talk about them even as regards the time just after she joined, when, from the few useful answers she has provided, she was quite happy. What the nature of the trauma that seems to have occurred her, and possibly continued until the time she was brought here, as nothing beyond the cut-off point has yet been found which she is willing to discuss, save for events that took place within this facility, is unknown, and current theories do not account for the multi-year nature of the gap.

    "Hey, Rei!", Kessia called, grinning at her, and, when the dragon got in range, darting over to hug her friend. "We weren't expecting to see you out here either, though admittedly, it's probably a good thing you were this far out, considering how we got here..."

    Merani, meanwhile, had headed over to Keika, going to hug her as well, since the second of the twins seems to be fond of such things, though likely for less time than Kessia, being less comfortable with physical affection than her half-sister; if Keika tries to hold it, she won't mind, but otherwise, she's uncertain how long is appropriate for such things, and thus will make it quite brief. "Nice shot. How have you two been doing? Pick up anyone interesting lately?"
    -----------------
    Kessia laughs as well, snuggling into Rei's arms, and resting her head on the dragon-girl's shoulder, nodding. "It can be a bit disconcerting, yeah, even for us... But it's a lot more convenient than it would have been to track you down normally, so it's probably still worth it."

    "Oh? We've got a few pictures I could take you into, set you loose on a city or two, if you like... It's been a while since I did anything like that too, so we could even go together, if you're up for some company,"Merani replies, grinning at Keika, and bringing a small portion of the flames on her arm to life. "As for why we're here, we wanted to see what was up with you two, and if you wanted to hang out for a while or something."
    -------------------
    Deireadh smiles as she slips into class, the afternoon sunlight gleaming off the silver raven skull at her throat, and takes a seat next to Kurt and Reika, looking over at Keiko and Darren with obvious amusement as she does.

    "You know, I've never gotten what your sister sees in people like that... They're so boring, and usually prudes, too. You can't even get anything good out of them in the way of work. I mean, it could be fun to get them to break all that training, I suppose, but with all the effort you have to spend, it's just not worth it...

    Anyway, how are you today, Rei?", she asked, her faint Irish accent, something she'd only acquired just before she came here, when the Morrigna chose her, somewhat more pronounced than usual.
    ----------------
    "Day-re-aad-hah," she corrected coldly, glaring at him; as Reiko was likely well aware, getting her name wrong, especially when it seemed deliberate, was one of the best ways to anger her. "In the future, I would appreciate if you at least attempted to get it correct. Or if you feel incapable of doing so, you could try asking if I have a preference of nickname, rather than assigning me a ridiculous one.

    Also, I didn't say this particular person didn't have better things to do than deal with Keika, or necessarily that he was typical of his kind, simply that I didn't understand the attraction that that type of person has for her. Does that clarify matters?"
    -------------------
    "You're welcome," Kiran replied just as quietly, and, judging by the sound of his voice, smiling. "And of course, I will, Bianca. Guiding you but then not letting you know if there was something you could trip over would rather miss the point, wouldn't it?

    Also," he went on, leaning in slightly, and dropping his voice still more. "If you'd like, I can take a look at the designs for your eyes, assuming you have them... I might be able to fix whatever's making them mess up, though obviously we'd need a way to test the new design without risking you losing what sight you have if I could."
    ---------------------

    The Wild Elves. Shapeshifters all, turning from beast to elf and back again, even in the most feared, taking on the flesh of others of their kin, or bodies harvested directly from their minds, and never seen in the world before they changed.

    But, while it is true that, to some extent, that makes them more bestial, they are certainly not uncivilized; the changes are minor, or at least well hidden, and none who have truly visited them claim they are less than their kin.

    The Wild Elves use Geisthounds and Barghest to hunt humans (and sometimes Outsiders) for enslavement, and have the idea of training animals now should it come up for other reasons.

    Geisthounds: Large, sleek, dark grey and/or blood-red hounds, with serrated fangs. They are quite literally tireless, capable of chasing prey for any duration without stopping, have the ability to track near-perfectly, and can become ethereal.

    Barghest: Great black dogs, with amazing endurance, and luminous eyes. Their howl induces intense fear in those who hear, and they are capable of sensing, producing, and feeding off of emotions.
    -----------------------------
    Kansheri smiled gently at the young goddess in her arms, a thin flap of flesh growing from her body as she did, forming a soft, fur-lined, area in which Ceryna could ride, whether asleep or awake, as she did, and going to gently set her daughter in it.

    "Bodies aren't the important bits, dear. They change, and anyone can make any kind they please for themselves. They're not entirely worth ignoring, but it's how the person thinks and feels that really matters, and your Witch-mommy loves you too, even if she isn't as snuggly as I am, and her beauty takes a different form from Joika's or mine. So give her a chance, alright?"

    And then Vetasz spoke, words which made Kansheri shudder, and cling more tightly to Ceryna in unconscious protection, though there was nothing here that was truly a threat, for that very concept terrified her.

    For now, though, she remained silent, forming a pair of new arms just under her existing ones, this time made of strange silvery wires, and night-black machinery, of a type that, by all rights, should be unknown for thousands of years yet, considering that electricity doesn't even exist yet, and going to slip one around her remaining sister, or at least take her hand, before she steps through the portal that Melaira created.
    -------------
    [Sunheart]

    Kansheri flowed to her sister's side as well, reaching out to gently fold Joika into her arms even as Melaira did the same, concern plain on her face, and, when she spoke, in her tone.

    "Do you require healing, sister? Or at least something to ease the pain? I could give either, I think, if you allow me..."

    And then Melaira spoke again, this time from the mortal world, in response to which, Kansheri raised a finger to her mouth, and bit it off, a new one forming in its place even as she sent it winging its way towards her sister, growing a new body as it did.

    Making a second head, that she might look at and speak to both Joika and Osramus without difficulty, she frowned slightly, liking his aesthetics, but disapproving of the intent behind his change of flesh.

    "Forms are cheap, meaningless in terms of true power or wisdom. As you see, I have changed my own many times, just as you did just now, and could do so until the world ended, should I choose to. I would see more proof of your fitness as leader than impressive looks before I join you."

    [Mortal World]

    The Finger flew on, growing a body, and, eventually, raven-like wings, as well as overlapping plates of midnight chitin, musical when they moved, eventually coming to a halt next to the shard of Melaira.

    "Greetings again, sister. Is there some purpose to this, or is it simply for our amusement?"
    --------------
    [The Heart of the Sun]

    "At present, aside from us, nothing capable of becoming either of those exists, much less something that can be both. So it would likely be more fruitful to table such discussion until something is, which I suspect will be be soon."

    Turning her second head back to Osramus, she smiled, and shrugged, with her lower set of arms, the ones not around Joika. "I have no tests for you, and as my sister has joined you, I will as well. I was simply informing those who might have been swayed for no other reason that appearance is not a good indicator of leadership abilities."

    CheesePirate passes with six face drawings in different artistic styles, including a fire-headed Loki.

    Neoriceisgood passes with eight comic pages and a ton of character colouring/shading.

    Icewalker passes with 1,889 words of case files.

    Castaras, I'll put you on the list when I have a confirmation and an idea how to find/check your writings

    Icewalker, I'd say "fairly intense" doesn't count in a fire theme. But I think flyingchicken has final say over that.

    flyingchicken, doodles don't count towards the Challenge. I'm a bit torn in regards to a full doodle page, but so far it's only been okay'ed for someone who was trying to learn.

    The Second: Oh my gosh, I'm sorry, I completely missed your post until now. Welcome! Just provide a link to your writings (or post them here), and you're all set.

    I'm now rushing to get the required amount of words done on my DND WIP, due to shenanigans earlier in the week. I'll edit this post with the link once I'm done with that.

    In the meantime, have a poem resembling the Fibonnaci sequence ascending then descending:

    Done in that form because I am a nerd and also why not.

    Edited to add:

    World's Largest Dungeon: Lots And Lots of Blood Part IV. The word count on that is 1110. I'll have to get another poem or something up so I can qualify.

    Second edit:

    I wrote a haiku. It's not my best work, but hey, I got another week under my belt!

    The rest of case file 9, and all of 10. Just only over 1500 words.

    Over the course of the next five years, Havoc hunted the Alias killer across the entirety of the Spire, between Peak, Old Chasm, Hawkhaven, Iron Heights, the Living Market, and the Spire Halo. In 337, Havoc pursued the Alias killer to the Empire of the Sands, in which he reported several further encounters with the killer. In 338, Havoc broke into the royal palace in the Empire of the Sands, and cornered and confronted the crown prince, holding the boy hostage. Havoc demanded the prince’s room be investigated. Court Mages arrived on the scene shortly afterwards, and disabled Havoc. However, within the same period of time, Vizier Satef acted on Havoc’s statements, and returned as the Court Mages intervened, having discovered the dead body of the crown prince hidden within his chambers. On the Vizier’s orders, the Court Mages accosted the crown prince Havoc had confronted, stopping him from leaving, and contained him.

    Havoc insisted that the Alias Killer had taken the form of the crown prince of the Empire of the Sands. Vizier Satef supported the investigator’s claim, as did certain others. In agreement with the royal family of the Empire of the Sands, the Lock prison facility held trial for the accused, and concluded that there was insufficient evidence to convict, and would allow the Empire of the Sands to conduct investigations hold trials against both Investigator Havoc as well as Vizier Satef for their actions. As the royal family left the courtroom, Havoc attacked the accused with a blade he had smuggled into the court. Witnesses in the courtroom, including the royal family, report seeing the accused’s body shift in a way utterly impossible for a human body. Havoc struggled with the accused, whose shape changed between several forms before Lock staff and Court Mages separated the two and took the accused back into custody. The accused was re-tried given new evidence, and was found guilty of 62 counts of Murder of the 2nd Gauge, 1 count of Regicide, and Practice of Priority II Illegal Magic, and was sentenced to life in prison within the Lock prison facility. Upon the request of the court, Investigator Jacob Havoc took the position of Lock Scholar 9 to continue observations of the convict.

    On the 19th day of the 3rd month, in the year 440, the occupant of Cell 9, having often changed form and appearance with its confines, returned to its cell after a regular scholar’s session in the appearance of Scholar Jacob Havoc. The occupant of Cell 9 has retained this appearance through the last year and a half, continuously claiming to be Scholar Havoc. On the outside of the cell, the effectively identical Scholar Havoc has stated that this is a further manipulation by the Alias killer. Some have theorized otherwise, however no conclusive evidence has been drawn in either direction.

    Known Capabilities:

    The particulars of the Alias killer’s abilities are unknown. Havoc has stated that it is capable of changing its appearance and form with great rapidity, with no known way to differentiate between Alias and those who it has taken the form of. Alias has not been seen to take the form of anybody it has not encountered and attacked. In battle, Alias has been seen to change forms with sufficient speed and precision to avoid the blows of weapons. It is unknown how the being is capable of such changes.

    Havoc has noted that Alias is capable of learning any and all knowledge and memories of those he has taken the form of. It is unknown whether he also gains the skills of those he has harmed, both physical or otherwise, such as magical ability; Alias has not been seen to use any clerical or arcane magic in encounters.

    The Alias killer’s victims have been found with their souls damaged, in keeping with the soul grafting procedures designed by Jonathan Gabriel Falx and Xerxes Sveran. It is unknown what capabilities this grafting may confer, nor whether his knowledge of soul grafts is different or more extensive than the original designs proposed by Researchers Falx and Sveran.



    Prisoner File for Cell 10

    Occupant:
    Amadeus Conté

    Crimes:
    Murder of the 1st Gauge (171 Counts)

    Date Imprisoned:
    Imprisoned the 29th day of the 5th month, in the year 337
    Transferred to the Lock prison facility on the 14th day of the 9th month, in the year 337
    3 years, 3 months, 2 days to the date.

    Classification:
    Human

    History:
    The early life of Amadeus Conté is almost entirely unknown. Orphaned young, he was adopted in the year 308, at the age of 14, by the then retired medical researcher Jonathan Gabriel Falx. As Falx lived a highly reclusive lifestyle, there are effectively no records of his early or late childhood. In the year 315, Falx died in a chemical laboratory accident, leaving Conté his estate.

    Shortly after Falx’s death, Conté discovered old research files written by Falx and his colleague Xerxes Sveran detailing the procedures of soul grafting developed by the two in the year 292, which were never published by the researchers. The procedure was considered by the officials of the Halls of Hope and deemed immoral and illegal. This ban was acknowledged and brought into effect by the Spire and the Empire of the Sands, as well as by the Kingdom of Dawnstar.

    Conté followed the career of his adopted father, becoming an official surgeon in the Halls of Hope at the young age of 23, and was considered among his colleagues to be one of the most competent surgeons in the Halls, even right from the end of his training in 317. Over the course of the next 9 years, Conté continued to serve in the Halls of Hope as a surgeon of renowned ability. In 326 he was given the position of Head Surgeon within the Halls of Hope, a position he held for the next 10 years, generally considered to be one of the most capable surgeons in medical history.

    Between the years 330 and 336, a number of deaths occurred within the Halls of Hope, seeming to be the result of unexpected allergic reactions and abnormal responses to medication. In 336, a Hope doctor named Raphael Ophiuchus Oros and a Knight of Dawn named Iustitia Ariel presented evidence that this large series of deaths was the result of intentional malpractice, via the modification of medications given to certain patients. Oros had concluded that the pattern in the deaths was the result of the same modification in medicine across over a hundred cases. Dame Ariel noted that every patient found dead in such a way seemed to have some history of crime, including numerous criminals who had served and finished a sentence, and individuals tried but found innocent. When investigated by the Halls, the pattern was acknowledged, and the lethal changes to the medication was traced to Amadeus Conté. Conté was tried by the Kingdom of Dawnstar for the murder of 168 patients over the course of 8 years. Conté was found guilty, and sentenced to life imprisoned with productive labor for the Kingdom.

    Shortly after his imprisonment, Conté escaped his guards during a session of labor, and was found afterwards with the dead body of another prisoner, a Twilight Dragoon and Knight of Dawn named Michael Iblis brought in by Alexander Sky ten years prior. Conté had killed the man with a scalpel, without apparent evidence of a fight. It is unknown where the prisoner acquired the blade, but it was confiscated and removed from the facility. Conté’s sentence was modified, limiting his allowances out of his cell and ceasing labor opportunities. Weeks after this incident, Conté was discovered to be missing from his cell, and was found with the dead body of another prisoner, similarly a Twilight Dragoon and Knight of Dawn, named Opalus Telemachus. Again, via methods unknown, Conté had used a scalpel. Conté was moved into high security solitary confinement under high watch in a separate facility within the Kingdom of Dawnstar. A month after this second incident, Conté was again missing from his cell. He was found back in his previous prison facility, with the body of the third major leader of the Twilight Dragoons brought in by Alexander Sky, the ex-Knight Jahanna Navis.

    After this third killing, the Kingdom of Dawnstar requested the assistance of the Lock prison facility to deal with Amadeus Conté. Amadeus Conté was tried on 171 counts of Murder of the 1st Gauge, and was sentenced to life in prison in the Lock prison facility.

    Known Capabilities:

    Amadeus Conté is primarily known as a surgeon, and not as a combatant, thief, or mage, though he is known to have clerical knowledge within the scope of a skilled cleric. Conté has extensive medical knowledge of all sorts as well. It is likely that Conté is capable of the soul grafting procedures developed by researchers Falx and Sveran, however whether this is true is unknown.

    It is unknown how Conté was capable of escaping his bonds and guards during his three escapes in prison. He had shown no previous experience of similar abilities or knowledge prior to his imprisonment.

    What happened in my case was that some things came up RL (the details of which I can PM you, if you want) which left me in no state to gather things before the deadline.

    You must not fear to blister if you'd live a life in flame -
    I am girl and firebird and solace is my name!

    No worries. I hope you're okay.

    It appears that the opening post is slightly inaccurate : although the [per 8 weeks] prizecrafting is still unavailable due to material issues*, the figurine for reaching the 18 week mark** (one time occurrence, not per 18 weeks) is still available.
    It can be pretty much anything, within board rules and reasonable size constraints. See thread for a general idea of what i can do.
    So:
    The Grimmace
    Current run: 18 weeks
    Longest run: -
    Themes: -
    congratulations for being the 2nd participant to reach the prize . Figure out what you would like and PM me so we can get started.


    *might be resolved at some point in the future, the hobbyshop that i thought closed had simply relocated into the most baffling location possible.
    **originally 24 weeks, lowered to 18 weeks as per here
    It is more of a disclaimer than a name. Essay, Inc., or the like are all fine as shorthand.
    Things i made from clay, wire & paint.
