    Default The Black Mages of Corneria (IC)

    Matoya's Academy for the Normalcy Challenged

    It nears midnight in the isolated mountains north of Corneria, the moon rising over the towers carved from the mountain itself. Despite its appearance, the inner architecture regularly changes according to Matoya's whim, certain rooms only being available and connecting when she wants them to be.

    For now, only the bare minimum is available: your rooms, each suited to your individual tastes, the dining hall and kitchen where you make your own meals (anyone so unpracticed in alchemy not able to cook themselves a meal would starve under Matoya's tutelage), and a few small studies.

    Besides you lot, there are two other students: Scraggle, an elderly dwarf artificer, the only senior of you that's still under Matoya's tutelage, and Aki, a beautiful young human sorceress on her first night at the academy. Currently Scraggle is fast asleep in his room, inaccessible to the other mages as all of the bedrooms are, and Aki is stuck on guard duty outside the front gate. Not that a guard is even considered necessary, Matoya just gives that punishment to whoever ticks her off the most, effectively grounding them outside on the cold mountain nights.

    Panting, sweat running down his face and bare chest, Raiden grinned at the practice dummy in front of him in his bedroom. The faceless humanoid mass of straw and twine stood there upright, alert, almost tauntingly, as if to say, "Is that all you've got?" Raiden was sure that if the thing had a face, it would be grinning right back at him. After a full evening of enduring lightning strikes, its appearance was no more serious than a slight char around the edges.

    "She sure makes 'em tough", Raiden admitted with a chuckle. The practice dummies he set up in the fields outside of Corneria, where his latent talents for the arcane were awoken by the power of the crystals, lasted little more than ten minutes against his lightning magic. But Matoya's practice dummies were different -- her magic-infused constructs of straw were able to withstand just about anything Raiden could think of throwing at it. Raiden even knew that he'd awake in the morning and there would be no sign of a full day of training, as if an invisible maid cleansed the walls as well as his "training buddy" of all magical residue. The magicks that enveloped this mountain were truly formidable, and yet, strangely comforting, reassuring Raiden that he was where he needed to be.

    Grabbing a cloth and patting himself dry, he threw on his battle robe over his well-matured upper body. He was still only nineteen years old, but over the last few years he'd grown immensely. Despite the fact that during combat training he mostly relied on his arcane talents rather than his athleticism, it took a tremendous physique to be able to handle the amount of teleportation he could endure. It was only weeks ago that he taught himself the skill of disassembling himself in a flash of lightning only to reappear nearby to the amazement of anyone watching. He knew hard work would open the door to his next trick...

    He grabbed his mother's dagger, flawless despite years of use. When he held it, he could almost hear the air crackle with energy around its blade. We sure have used this in very different ways, haven't we, Mother?, he thought to himself. Although the jagged, brutal sharpness of the blade suggested to its wielder it had seen a lot of battle in the shadows, it also gave him a sense of protection, knowing his mother ended up on top time after time. She was a damn good rogue and even though you didn't talk about them, the thieves in town revered her as something greater than she'd ever let on. By wielding it, he felt like Erwyn the half-elf was close by, proud of her youngest son.

    Finding his father's battle staff, he held it out at arms-length and inspected it. Having recently received it as a gift, he was learning how to reliably draw power from it to strengthen his magic. Reminds me of your strength, Father...though it's abrasive, just like you!, thought with a smirk. He admired Corwen deeply, but was eager to emerge from his father's shadow and tell his own tale of adventure.

    -----

    Wandering out into the kitchen, Raiden grabbed some meat he had caught the day before and hacked off a sizable chunk of flank. Wandering out into the empty dining hall, he grabbed a seat at the table, setting down his implements away from his plate. Placing his hands just over the meat and closing his milky-white eyes, he focused a hint of his energy in his palms, zapping the meat for a few seconds. He opened his eyes, inspected his work, and couldn't wait to dive right in. "Just the way I like it!" he exclaimed, lacking the willpower to keep that thought inside.

    Eating until he was satisfied while wrapping a sizable warm chunk in a cloth, he dropped his plate off in the kitchen, grabbed his tools, and walked toward the open door. He eyeballed a study on his way to the front gate, scoffing to himself. "Like hell you'll catch me in there if I can help it! He hadn't been able to shake his aversion to studying.

    Approaching the gate, he dimly saw the figure of Aki leaning against the mountain wall. Why not chat up the new girl? "Hey lady, could you keep it down? You're causing quite a racket out here!" he calmly joked with a smile. He grabbed a spot on the wall opposite from Aki, and offering the still-warm meat wrapped in cloth, he asked, "Hungry?"

    By warm candlelight in the frosty study room, Malreth continues to intricately analyze the workings of thermodynamics and the breaking thereof using arcane applications. He mouths the words of the compendium silently as is a common habit he insists he shall break.

    Inside of the study sat Jykil, thumbing through a tome on curses, their causes, and their effects. This wasn't the first of these volumes he had thumbed through, and certainly wouldn't be the last, but no matter how many he had looked at he had found little to no knowledge of his own affliction. If it even WAS an affliction. Maybe freaky magic powers and a split personality were just part of who he was, no matter how much he wanted to deny it and just be a normal paladin serving under Bahamut.

    He looked toward the elf also studying, mouthing the words to himself. A silly habit but also an understandable one. Briefly he considered asking the elf a question, as elves were known for their prowess in the mystic arts, but he decided against it. The last thing he needed was to be forcibly hushed by some mage's silence spell again.

    Thina, Bard of Blue

    Thina had been in her room for way too long, and she was getting cabin fever. She went out and ventured through the public areas, curious as to what other people were doing. Needing to get some air, Thina ventured outside. She was trying to watch where everyone was from outsife and see what they were going. Eventually she got bored of this and felt the need to sing. She went out in the middle of the courtyard and started to sing. It wasn't a sad song, necessarily, but a song of a powerful yearn to be back home with her family and see her father. She always sang this song when she hadn't been back home in quite a while and was wanting to go back. Some of the older students knew, right as they heard her voice, if they wanted to get anything done, they protected themselves from hearing her. However, if anyone was too busy or didn't realize what was going on, they would immediately get sucked in to Thina's song and all drive to do anything else but listen to her would be sucked out of them.

    As Malreth began to hear the song of the Mergirl, he tightly clutched his eyes in frustration. After all, he stayed up well past bedtime to read so he could avoid disturbances such as this. Unable to concentrate further on the book and still not quite at the point of tiredness to sleep, he followed the voice to the courtyard.

    Partly not caring about her sorrow painted in her lyrics and partly frustrated at her singing to begin with, his words towards her were chosen harshly.

    "Honestly, you would have the entire school awaken to hear this performance?"

    Thina, Bard of Blue

    Hearing the words from her fellow student, the singing stops immediately and her gaze shoots to who disrupted her. As if she was piercing his very soul, she eyes Malreth down, but not saying a word. She takes a deep breath, and then starts her lament again, determined, now, to finish it until she feel she is done.

    The sorceress is dressed in fine red robes, not at all suited for this sort of "work," but merely taps her foot impatiently while several small balls of fire hover around her for warmth. She was still new, and still self-important, as most of you were when you first came here. "You have to be joking. Eat some animal you charred to a blackened husk? No thanks! She turns her nose up. Apparently she came from a fairly wealthy family in Corneria, and it unfortunately showed. But the story's all too familiar to the veteran students: She would humble herself and adapt or she would quit early. That's just all there was to it.

    Aki rolls her eyes, "Ugh, does that damn bird keep everyone awake this late with her singing?"

    Malreth and Jykil feel a strange chill run up their spine, barely distinguishable from the night air draft, but you learned to suspect everything in these towers.

    Thina in particular when she's done singing is suddenly very tensed, getting that feeling one gets that someone or thing is present in the corner of one's eye when they're clearly not. Sure the towers were well-protected by a series of magical wards and enchantments, but still, it does not feel safe to be alone tonight.

    "Suit yourself", shrugged Raiden as he threw the cooked piece of meat as far out of the tower as he could manage. "If you're not going to eat it, someone, or someTHING else will," he said with a wink.

    "This cool air sure feels nice after a good workout!", said Raiden with a stretch. After settling back against the wall, he looked Aki square in the eyes and said,

    "I'm rooting for you, I really am. No matter the circumstances behind why you're here, Matoya wants you here for a reason. That's why we're all here. Whatever it is that you have to do to improve yourself, make it happen. Malreath & Ezekial study, and that's well and fine for them. Me? I prefer...shall we say...live exercises. But a word of advice, New-Girl. Rely on us, your classmates. No one here is better than anyone else and we're all in this together. For example, you'd do well to respect Thina." He lifted his shirt to showcase a scar across his right oblique. "This one hurt pretty bad, but she healed me up like nothing ever happened. Likewise for everyone else here...we've all got talents to offer."

    Jykil's draconic ear-holes perked up a little as he heard the song. Some mages found it kind of annoying, but Jykil always found it to be kind of relaxing instead. Besides, being so far away from his draconic isles, he could deeply sympathize on how it felt to be fear away from home.

    Of course, Malreth didn't seem as appreciative, and stormed off in a huff. It may have sounded silly, but the loneliness in the study soon began to leave Jykil kind of disquieted. His kind revolved around safety in numbers, true enough, but today more than ever being alone just seemed chill-inducing. Getting up and putting the tome he was reading away, he left to follow the sound of the singing. There would be a lot of people there, and numbers meant safety.

    Then why did so many die under my watch?

    Winter was alone in his private chamber, standing perfectly still in the corner. Were one to venture inside they might be perplexed to find a room rather free of clutter with bare walls, practically empty save for a small wooden desk to one side and what would appear to be an iron suit of armor alone on the opposite wall. Left to his own devices, the living construct did very little to socialize with others, only acting on his own part when he was needed to perform some task for members of the academy.

    As the melodious sound traveled through the corridor halls, it stirred the automaton mage from his stasis. The view of his surroundings became clear as he resumed "consciousness" and taking note of the siren song, he slowly willed himself to clatter to the door and out into the hall to its source.

    Thina, Bard of Blue

    After Thina starts singing again, she feels a cold, daunting chill run up the back of her spine. After feeling this, her song immediately changes to one of defense and warning to all the others. This type of song, too , they have heard before, and it usually meant that someone, or something was around them that shouldn't be. The song is about a little fish that ventured too far out from his home and was stalked by a bigger fish and eaten, and as corney as the others thought of the lyrics, the melody put them on their guard and made them think twice abotu stepping into shadows.....or being alone.

    Raiden can't really get a bead on whether Aki is a complete b!tch or if she's just putting up a brave facade.

    The courtyard is a large lawn and garden, lit only by the stars, surrounded by a roof-covered walkway which, in this lighting, was completely engulfed in shadow. The only artificial light sources come from some torches inside the stairwell leading to the courtyard. There's only one, but it leads to everywhere else that the students are currently allowed to go simultaneously, one of those spatial quirks that took some getting used to. Also, a light is on far up in the highest tower where Matoya resides. Whereas the rest of the building is populated by animated brooms and featherdusters constantly cleaning the place by themselves, out here a series of animated gardening implements tend to the flowers and grass here. Normally this place is a pleasant respite compared to the rest of the academy, but tonight the shadows make it espcially eerie. Thina is here singing her song as the others gather toward her song.

    Following Thina's melodic tune echoing through the halls, he continued at a leisurely pace. Upon hearing the melody change, he perked to attention. Although he couldn't quite make out the words, he knew those combinations of minor-scale notes and recognized the song. He fortunately wasn't too far away from Aki, and sprinting back to her position, he called out, "Get inside and double, no, triple-bar that gate. Ready whatever warding spells you know. Something's not right and we don't need to lose you on Night #1, do we darling?"

    After delivering the word, he hurried through the halls and up the stairs. He could hear the heavy, mechanical feet of the Warforged behind him and his spirits lifted, knowing that one of the "big guys" had also heard Thina's durge of caution.

    Soon he emerged in the courtyard, slightly out of breath but weapons in hand. He took a moment to survey the area, noting Matoya's magical instruments seemed undisturbed in their automated processes.

    He quickly moved to Thina and quietly said, "I heard your song. Do you know anything? Where is it?" This was not the first time Matoya's school had experienced danger. Given her stature, she not only had many allies but many enemies...

    God, that song was so corny. But at least it let Jykil know where to go. Sirens of myth used their song to lure others toward danger, but this song seemed different. It seemed almost . . . almost like a warning. Jykil's scale armor was in his pack, and before continuing to move any further the Dragonborn decided to stop and suit up. The armor would've been horrendously uncomfortable for studying in, but if there was going to be trouble he would want to be fully equipped.

    Through the cold winds of the night Jykil advanced, the voice growing louder and louder as he approached the source. He turned to the merfolk, curious.

    The melody and the lyrics warned of danger as Malreth turned to head back inside following being ignored by the girl. He stopped in place and drew his sword as some other students entered the courtyard. His body tensed and mind sharpened; racing words of enchantment that honed his spells.

    By the time that Winter had made it towards the source of the bard's song, he too felt something, a sort of unnatural disturbance in arcane energies around him. One would say that he had felt what could be described as a "chill run down his spine", that is if he had one. Seeing a number of the other students from his class, the warforged followed after them, slowly but surely, into the courtyard. Assembled with the other mages, his hand just hovered near his broadsword to his side, ready for action.

    Thina, Bard of Blue

    As soon as the big kocking sound happened, Thina's song ended. She shot her eyes around, trying to figure out what made the sound. Generally very fun and mischievous, Thina definitely changes demeanor as soon as there is danger. "I do not believe we are alone", she says in her silky voice. "Be on your guards."

    Raiden looks around at the shadows, but finds nothing but the usual movements in shadows one suspects of foul play, and the knocking only echoes for him throughout the courtyard.

    Jykil swears he sees something move out of his eye and instinctively fires an Eldritch Blast, but hits nothing but a patch of flowers reducing it to a pile of smoldering ash. The gardening implements, enchanted by Matoya to dole out punishments, start chasing him...

    ...but the warlock is too spry and they never catch him, eventually giving up and tending to the not-burnt plants in the garden. Jykil is thoroughly distracted though. The good news is that corner of the garden is much less frightening now that it's well lit.

    Malreth, Winter, and Thina, however, manage to get a bead on the sound's origin, and it's coming from... Matoya's tower?!

    Matoya's quarters are normally inaccessible from the magical staircases. Of course, if Matoya was currently willing it, they'd go straight to her room, or they could lead to the lavatory as they usually do for people who dare disturb her.

    Among the commotion of the assembled mages in the courtyard, Winter could only just make out the origin of the disturbance and cast his gaze towards Matoya's tower. Even in his short time of existence, the warforged had grown to learn that it was never a wise idea to disturb the old witch in her private quarters. Addressing the others, a gravely voice rumbled out between his metal maw,

    "Source of disturbance... located. Course of action... investigate?"

    A very embarrassed Jykil hoped that nobody saw him fire at the flowers, thankful that his scale mail plating didn't inhibit his movement too badly. Fortunately, though, the automaton seemed to have a better idea of what was going on than he did.

    "Sounds like a plan. That knocking can only mean bad news."

    "That came from the tower...Matoya's experiments perhaps...though I have an ill feeling of what has transpired. If something's happened, or she's hurt, we must assist."

    Malreth began walking back inside.
    Many thanks to Ceika for the sweet avatar.

    Raiden muttered, "What is that old witch up to now? I'm sure if she's gotten herself in a mess she could handle it...but I'm afraid of what would happen if she found out we stood around and did nothing." His mind took him back to the study, and he shuddered at the thought of a huge reading assignment. It's just the type of punishment she had doled out on him in the past. "The elf's got it right, it's time to go save the day. Maybe she'll even thank us!" said Raiden as he patted Malreth on the back, jogging beside him.

    Jykil followed the two, thankful he had his armor with him. He wasn't as familiar with the witch's habits as the others were, but he certainly knew that provoking her wrath was a bad idea.

    "Stay on your guard, everyone. If something's happened at the tower of all places, we're probably going to be in quite a bit of danger.

    What kind of power are you two packing for today?"

    As the group neared the stairwell Raiden gently slammed the end of his staff on the ground, creating a small, audible concussive blast.

    Then he, flexing his other arm slightly, created a streaking light through the blade of his dagger.

    "Thunder and lightning, Scales. All the time."

    Thina, Bard of Blue

    Thina walks up next to Jykil and whispers, "You'll have to teach me to move like that when I'm being chased by cleaning equipment." She then looks at him and gives him a wink and a smile and keeps walking with the others. Thina, too, is disturbed by the fact that something odd is going on in the tower. "I hope that this isn't a test. I don't want to walk into the bathroom.....again," Thina finishes with a hint of annoyance in her voice. Clearly this isn't the first time they have been "tested."
