    Default Grimoire of the Rift (IC)

    OOC : http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=260614

    Everything is normal...but sometimes you wish it wasn't normal don't you.

    Escapist fantasy is everywhere, and we love it. We would love to be princes, knights, merchants, bard, and maybe even the dashing pirate rogue.

    Of course some people take it a little farther.

    It's the real world, a basic D&D group of seven has gathered for their monthly game.

    "It's a shame this stuff, isn't real, but what if it could be?" Mori the nutjob states, pulling out a book. "Check it out, I found this grimoire at a bookstore. Looks legit too, it's got a nice spell, in it."

    He reads from it.

    "From the books you read, to the stories you tell, state your wish and there you shall dwell."

    "I'd be a merchant." One states.
    "A noble." says another.
    "What about you?" One ask Mori, but he refuses to answer.

    We all have a good chuckle at the book and sigh that it could never be true.

    You go to bed in your modern day home, relax and rest in your blankets...but when you wake up...something isn't right..why is your house's walls no longer painted? Where did the curtains go? And where the hell is all my stuff?! Why am I in what looks like (insert profession's place here).

    You bolt out of bed, and look around the room, getting your bearings.

    Zachary Smith wakes, the cool scent of morning air greets his nostrils. It's a pure scent, unpolluted, reminding him of country air. It's surprising chill.

    As the tall, well muscled, and tan man slides his legs out of bed he is assaulted as his toes touch the cold stone for.

    "What the hell?!" Zach let's escape.

    Where am I? Why am I naked? And who te hell is she?! ..... Though, I've done worse... That's besides the point

    His gaze moves around the dimly lit room until his eyes are drawn to a set of shining silver armor, a large glistening sword, and an ornate book left open.

    Those are... Mine! Where am I? What has happened to me?! he thinks emphatically.

    You look around the room and get braced with your surroundings. As you pick up your sword, you swing it as if it were second nature. Somehow you just "know" the stance. A young boy walks in.

    "Sir Smith." The boy bows. "Are you alright? Do you need anything from your squire? Do not forget that today we are suppose to aid with the festival tournament for the Princess's birthday."

    You look at the boy, wondering what in the nine hells he is talking about.

    John opens his eyes slowly wincing as the light glares in his eyes.

    As he sits up he realises he is not in his own bed.
    Where... Where am I?.

    He gets out of bed feeling rough wood floors beneath him. As he looks around the room he begins to panick. In place of his computer desk is a simple wooden table.

    This isn't my room. Something isn't right.

    You hear a knock on the door as you're going through your belongings which seem to include a large amount of accounting forms.

    "Hey are you up yet?" A female voice calls through the door. "We were suppose to go to the market this morning remember? We need to pick up the flowers for the guild's gift to the princess! So get ready!"

    You hear her leave mutterings about how odd it is that you've slept in.

    You gather your bearings and slowly come to terms with what happened. "Prin...cess..." You think, putting two in two together, along with that receipt for a "Belt of Healing".

    As Tabatha awakens and raises her head, a piece of sticky paper loosen from the side of her cheek. She rubs her eyes while a simple thought of recognition crosses her mind. She must of fallen asleep studying again. Well at least that's what she thought. As her eyes adjust her heart skips a beat and starts to pound. Panic sets in as she realizes shes not at her desk.

    She gives the room a sweeping glance checking for any signs of another person. Locked to the chair in a state of fear her mind races trying to find the answer. Did she go to the wrong home last night, perhaps a friends, or worse? Her heart continues to race as she slowly edges off the chair.

    A quick glance reviles this certainly wasn't a modern home. The walls were made of simple wooden planks, the floor just the same, the furnishings and styles of the items looked archaic. She quietly crept her way towards the door then slowly nudged it open, glancing outside into the hall. Empty. Fearing discovery she closed it just as slow as she opened it and turned back to the room. It had to contain answers or some clue to her location.

    Standing near the door she gave the room a thorough look over. A simple bed, a desk with a couple books, and a large chest lined the walls. Nothing too reveling yet. She moved over to the large trunk and tugged at the lid. Her effort was only met with resistance. Must of been locked. Moving over to the desk she peer down at several thick leather bound books.

    While they all have locks, the one she woke up on remains open. She moves the chair to the side and quickly flips to the start of the book. Looking for some type of answer to what in the world is going on. Surprise and shock feel her as she looks down on the strange symbols. She drags her finger down the first one and presses it down at the base. Definitely not english.

    I really shouldn't be posting since I'm so tired but really wanted to get a post in before I went to bed. Hope I don't wake up in the morning and regret the choice xD.

    Lucas wakes up much faster then what he would prefer. Who the hell left the window uncovered, it is my day off!
    He struggles for a moment, but even in his half-asleep state of mind he can easily notice that something is different.
    Wait did I sleep at student's dormitory? ... or did Kate invite me in?...
    He finally opens his eyes and looks around the place...
    ..."This is not a dormitory"... he whispers...

    He stands up, still stunned trying to remember how he got here ... or at least where could be this whole 'here'...

    [half conscious thoughts as he walks around]
    Quite a comfortable bed they have here... Nice and thick carpet, one I would buy I guess... hmm stone tiles? I've never seen these in a bedroom... nice, stone walls, not painted but they remind me of Tuscany... okay... no lamps, but there are candles everywhere... going back to Kate, she has this type of taste... but unless she drugged me I would remember everything by now... wow, these are interesting!...
    As he walks to the other room he notices a desk with a set of high-quality clothes and a huge crystal, lying just in the middle.
    Could as well wear this, better than naked, I guess...

    As you read the book, you realize although it's clearly not in English you can read it as if it were plain English. "Glitterdust" "Mending" "Detect Magic" this things reads like a D&D book written by tolkien, yet something is clearly off about it. Namely the fact that a few items lying around the room are clearly glowing magical in nature and this place looks like a wizard's quarters. You think back to the wish you made when Mori cast the spell.

    Lexin

    You get dressed and hear a knock on the door. "Hey Lucas! Are you up? I got a quick job for you!" The voice is sharp but kind. "I need you to take a letter to the castle. The psionics guild project needs more funding before we can build the necessary items for the project."

    'Psi-on-nic... wait WHAT?!' you think as you look at the crystal coming to a conclusion about what it might be, and realize what might has happened.

    Could it be...? No this has to be some sort of crazy dream or hallucination.

    John continues to mutter to himself as he heads towards the wardrobe. Finding a white tunic, a fine belt and a pair of fine trousers he dressed and headed out of the room into the hallway.

    Okay that's... in his thoughts words 'freaky' and 'fun' are fighting for the place in this sentence and as Lucas couldn't decide on one, he just left it as it was...

    "Just a minute!" He shouts back.

    Okay... I am dreaming. This one is for sure. *Ouch* ...or maybe not... in movies pinching works...
    Okay, if I were in a fantasy realm and became a psion... best way to learn anything would be...
    His eyes are drawn back to the crystal on his desk. He grabs it...

    [telepathy] "Okay, assume that I lost my all memories of this place and possibly life. Now, I need to know what is going on and what should I do. Keep talking... and in easy to understand words, I still feel half asleep.
    Last coherent thoughts as he holds the crystal and looks at it with expectation was Am I really talking to a rock and expecting it to answer?

    You walk down the long hallway into a dining room where merchants are gossiping and eating. A woman around your age greets you. "Hey John." She says. "Glad you finally got up. I'll make you some food when we get back, but we gotta get going!" She grabs you arm firmly and starting dragging you anime style towards the door to the laughs of the other merchants.

    "Go Mana! Show your boyfriend why you're the next merchant princess!"

    "He's not my boyfriend!" She says back, with a visible blush making everyone laugh as she drags you out the door and towards the market.

    The crystal glows, and speaks to you in our mind. "Well you're Lucas, you're the son of the guildmaster of the guild of psions, the studiers of the art of psionics and the main non-arcane, non-divine, non-mundane, power in the Rosewood kingdom. I'm your psycrystal. You're a Erudite, and your goal in life was to travel the world and discover fantastical discoveries. Also today is the Princess's birthday celebration so you might want to get dressed and go deliver that letter while she's in a good mood.

    Princess's birthday... I am Erudite... Not bad for a dream...

    He chooses better clothes to wear, more suitable when attending the court (How the heck do I know which clothes would be more suitable for attending the court?!?). Black, with arcane/psionic symbols sewn with silver thread. And long black cloak with lots of pockets, which seemed as natural to wear as a part of is own body.
    He notices leather straps on his belt, thinks a short while and puts the psicrystal there.
    Now ready, he opens the door.

    She shakes her head, questioning the sanity of her last thought. It's just not possible... though if it were true that would explain a lot. She takes a slow deep breath then slowly exhales. As her racing heart begins to calm and her mind settles she decides a change of course is in order. She closes the book in front of her, it locking with a notable click, then turns around to face the door. Pressing it open again she calls out into the hallway as she moves about, "Hello?"

    "Not to my knowledge. You did have a bit of ale though, so unless someone in the guild drugged it..." The crystal trails off.

    A man stands there and hands you a letter addressed to "Princess Teru". "Take this to the castle and deliver it. It's important you start dealing with the courts, for when you finally take over the guild. Also calm down a bit, you look like you don't know who I am." He shakes his head. "Talking to the courts isn't easy I know, but it's something the guildmaster has to do..you know just as well as I do the 6 main guilds of this kingdom. Psion, Arcane, Divine, Nature, Merchant, Mercenary. We need to make sure we pull our weight! Now go deliver the letter, the cooks should have a meal ready for you when you get back." He pats you on the shoulder and leaves.

    "Um...the market?" She points to what is clearly some kind of medieval style market. So unless you were magically teleported to a renaissance fair, and everyone is VERY good at keeping in character....chalk a point for...well...something. "Come on, I need you to help me carry the flowers back." She drags you to a florist and starts examining the flowers. "It's a shame more people don't like flowers. I personally think a good flower brightens a room and helps raise morale." She goes up to the counter and starts talking in what you would think would be slang, bartering with the clerk, but you clearly can understand what she's saying. Eventually get gets a large amount of flowers and pulls out her coin purse...to pay with copper and silver pieces....

    "Are you up my apprentice?" An older man walks out of a nearby room. "Ah...good, you're up, have you prepared your spells yet for today? Remember to prepare at least two glitterdust spells. We need to use them to help decorate the arena for the tournament." He smiles at you. "You've come so far since you apprenticed under me, I cannot wait til I get to teach you fireball, which is one of my favourite spells. Go prepare your spells, I'll go to the kitchen and conjour up something nice for breakfast."

    "Her BIRTHDAY. Her COMING OF AGE BIRTHDAY." Mana emphasizes. "Geeze how much did you drink!? The whole country has been planning this celebration for months! This is the day where she steps up and becomes the official heir to the throne, aka the NEXT RULER OF THE KINGDOM."

    She looks at you like you're high. "Are you sure you're okay? I better make you a good meal when we get back...you seem like you might be sick..." She puts her hand to your forehead. "No fever..."

    She stays silent looking at you for the rest of the short walk back.

    She stops in her tracks and turns to look at you. Her face looking like someone threw a brick at her. "The SHIPPING COMPANY?!" She almost yells. "The network of carts between the Capital of Oda and the Hara Family?! The project we've been setting up with the guildmasters for weeks?!" She starts breathing heavy. "Come. We need to get you back to the guildhouse. I'm starting to worry about you. I'll cook you a meal and then we can talk alone." She leads you back and you drop off the flowers. "Go to your room." she orders firmly. "I'll be up in about 20 minutes with your meal."

    When Danil woke up that morning, he thought for a while he was still dreaming. He looked around the room and saw the acoutrements of his wildest dreams. There a shirt of shimmery chainmail, there a shield actually painted with his own made-up coat of arms, there Veramorte real-sized and shiny.

    On the second sweep, his eyes registered stranger details. the lack of electricity, the presence of candles and torches, the presence of only two suits of clothes, one fancy in blue and gold, one practical in blue and gold. But what really clinched it was when he happened to notice his arms. Those were definitely more muscular than the arm he'd had when he went to sleep.

    Well that line of questioning was probably less subtle then I had intended.

    John heads up stairs to his room to think so thinks over.

    Okay so I am a member of some sort of shipping guild I have 20 minutes to figure out what I do before that girl comes upstairs maybe I can find something with my title or at least some sort of map.

    John hurries around the room looking for anything that might help him understand what is going on

    You hear a knock on the door. "Master Danl? May I come in? I have your breakfast prepared for you?" The voice is timid and sweet, and subservient.

    You eventually find a map of the "rosewood" kingdom. Please refer to the OOC thread shortly.

    Sir??...with a Squire??... I can work with that...

    Looking to the young boy and making sure to use the greatsword to maintain his decency in a nonchalant manor, "Squire. Please use my full title as you would introduce me at court. A little practice couldn't hurt."

    Waiting for the boy to respond his gaze moves back to the women in his bed.
    If my fiance knew about this part of my dream she'd kill me!

    "And pray tell, name the lass in my bed."

    I'm going with not knowing who she is for a little spice. Anyone would be fine, maybe a castle servant, or princess' aid? Have fun with it.

    "Sir Zachery Smith. Knight of the kingdom of Rosewood. Currently situated in the Capital Country of Oda." The Squire replies.

    "Also...that's Leila...the Princess's bodyguard. You two sparred for hours yesterday, then came back here and got drunk. You two went through 4 barrels of ale before collapsing." He looks at you. "Do you require assistance with anything? Sword sharpened? Help getting your armour on?"

    A Knight?...

    "Thank you, please show Leila out. I will not require your assistance, come to me once my presence is required."

    Sir Zachary Smith, Knight of the Rosewood Kingdom, stands tall and bids the lass farewell with a kiss on her hand, "It was a thousand pleasures."

    Once alone, he dresses in his undercloths quickly before donning his armor. He takes his time, letting his fingers remember the clasps, and feel of the surprisingly light silvered chain....Mithril...Made by my hand... as he traces the intricacies of the metal work. Next he dons the crafted Mithril braces, and finally the intricate sword. It is as if the great blade was made by his hand for his hand and his hand alone.

    Once his armor is donned he turns to the book in front of him and begins to read and flip through the pages, his mind afire with the traces of the magic in the words...

    The squire wakes Leila and helps her leave. Apologizing to her for anything that happened last night.

    You flip through the book and find it full of magical terms that normally you wouldn't understand, but you can read them as if they were plain English. The odd part is that you KNOW you shouldn't know what they mean, you just do. (Like Harry speaking snake language in chamber of secrets).

    Eventually you start hearing the other Knights in the barracks get up and prepare themselves as well, and before long you can hear a large amount of footsteps outside in the hallway.

    As he flips through the pages, absorbing and reaffirming the knowledge within the book...I'm a Knight....and a Mage...I'm a battle mage?a real life Gish! This has got to be the most realistic dream I've ever had.

    Zachary stands up and uses his small personal mirror and a bit of water to clean up his appearance. He also uses a small blade to clean the hair off of his face.

    It is then that he hears the others in the hallway. Finding his key he stores everything but his blade, belt pouches, and his coin purse. He locks his room behind him and joins the group of people looking for his squire.

    Also, did I catch my Squire's name when he helped the girl to leave? I would be listenign for it.

    He did not state his name. However shortly after he approaches you again, and bows. "Sir Smith. The knights are all prepared for the tournament. They are looking forward to your match with Lady Leila. I am sure everything will go well for the Princess's birthday celebration." He gets to his feet. "Do you require anything prior to the tournament?" He asks. "If not may I have permission to go prepare for the squire's pre-game match."
