"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."
    Tabatha puts her hand up to the back of her head and firmly presses her hair down, a nervous tick shes had for a great many years. She lets out a small chuckle, "Apprentice?" Confused and somewhat prideful with the tittle shes been given by the older man. But without really giving any room for a reply she continues onwards, "I don't think I've prepared any spells today..."

    As the man smiled and honestly confessed a point of pride she felt slightly ashamed. She didn't really know anything about this man, whatever feelings he's expressing did she really deserve them? Unable to honestly return the mans sincere feelings she sticks to one of her more standard deflections to complements, "Thanks. It's not a big deal..."

    She slips back into her room watching the older man as he heads to wherever hes going to conjour up breakfast. Things were starting to make sense in a weird kinda way. Whatever was going on she'd play along with it for now, it'll be funner this way.

    The so called apprentice moves back towards her table and pulls up a chair. Four large leather bound books sit in front of her, she goes for the one she was the most familiar with. As her fingers move across the spin it dawns on her all the books are locked and she has no clue were the key is.

    A cursory look wasn't going to be enough. She opened a couple of the tables draws and shuffled through them, nothing there. She moved over towards the chest and tables and searched them as well, nothing there. Next she looked at her own cloths..well that's certainly new. Definitely not something she would normally wear but it breaths well and is pretty comfortable. Besides the new looks the dress didn't have what she wanted. Having gone through most of the room and turning it into a completely mess in the process she was running out of hiding spots till she got a funny idea. Were would she hide some keys? She moved over to a pouch she neglected earlier since it seemed to be a coin purse. Carefully dumping the coins onto the table, she spots a key ring.

    She takes her seat once again and tries several keys until she hears a click. She slowly opens it and looks back down at the strange text. Strange but readable for some odd reason. Continuing to play along she shouts out towards the hallway, "I'm preparing my spells now."

    Her hand following her quicker than usually reading pace, she starts to list out a couple spells quietly to herself. "Resistance..Acid Splash....Penumbra." Wait these are all low level spells, glitterdust should be father in the book if it is at all. She skips a couple pages at a time, "Open/Close...Prestidigitation..Identify." Ah here it is! Glitterdust. Staring blankly at the page. It's two pages long! She starts to fret at how impossible the task before her is. Palming her forehead her eyes focus on the first symbol, giving it her all she starts to trace the symbol with her finger while translating. The symbols slightly altering colors as she traces over them, but fading shortly after. About half way through a grin crosses her face, sure she had already witnessed several impossible things today but this was different. This was something that she was making happen. As she went on the words came to her faster and time quickly passed.

    Before long she had prepared her two gliterdusts and started searching through her other spellbooks. Another grin crossed her face when she spotted a spell that was sure to be a crowd pleaser. She continued to trace as many arcane symbols as she could till during the memorization of a new spell caused a splitting pain to shoot through her mind. Gripping her forehead hard she must be at her limit.

    Danil quickly ran through a series of facts and arguments about his position, speaking them out loud to help him think.

    "Fact 1: I have appearntly gone crazy. And not only crazy, but so crazy that I'm not going to wake up until the nice ladies in the psych ward shoot me full of drugs, if then."

    "Fact 2: Since I have already paid the price, I might as well enjoy the show. And if God has, for some unknown reason, granted me a miracle, it would be the height of ingratitude not to enjoy it."

    "Hmmm.... I already thought I could work magic when I was sane, let's see if I can do it while mad. Nothing too explosive, don't want to make a mess."

    Danil closed his eyes and turned inwards, seeking the familiar upwelling of skrizz energy. Forms of power flashed through his mind, and he knew the powers available to him. He selected one, and thrust out his hand. Four pale white orbs appeared in front of him. He concentrated, and the lights deformed into a luminous white cross.

    The gleam of the white cross sparked off a silvery cross among his gear. Danil let the Dancing Lights wink out as he went over to investigate this new discovery. A pair of silver crosses rested on top of a bible and what appeared to be a blank spellbook.

    "How many classes do I have?" Danil wondered out loud. He was faintly surprised when he realized that he instantly knew the answer to that question. He was a Cleric, a Fighter, and a
    Sorceror.

    "Okay, what am I supposed to be doing here?" No response.

    You prepare your spells and head down the stairs to the dining room. The old wizard causally spots you coming in.

    "Create food and water."
    "Pregditension".

    And food and water appears,then gets altered to taste better.

    Apparently the spell casting in this world works on order-of-the-stick logic where the verbal command for a spell is the spell's name.

    Reader

    There is another knock. "Master? Are you okay? Should I just leave the food at the door?"

    Lexin

    The crystal speaks to you. "Go to the castle, present the letter. You should be escorted inside, when you're inside, get on your knees and give the letter to the princess. Only speak when spoken to, and do not leave until dismissed."

    So be it.

    Lucas tries to follow the instructions as well as he can. Trying to sort out everything in his head.
    Wait, if I am here...

    "Hmm, do I have any friends here, that I should know about?
    For example people like... Zachary Smith?"

    Okay so I have some points of reference to refer to but I still know next to nothing. Maybe i should just follow others around and see what happens. Lets see if i can get any information out of these ledgers

    John picks up a nearby ledger and begins to read the contents.

    The door swings open and a young maid walks in with tray of food. "Your breakfast Baron." She sets it down on a nearby table. "Do you require anything else Sir?" She bows to you. She is wearing a meido outfit that looks a tiny bit out of place actually.

    You find journal and log entries about warehouses being placed in Oda and Hara to finalize a central shipping route between the two countries. You also find a long-term plan to create a network between all the countries to enable faster shipping with better security. Everything is signed by you and Mana.

    Taking a seat at the table, Tabatha garbs a fair portion of the summoned food, "um.. what are the plans for today? Not that I forgot, I would never do something like that." A sly grin crosses her face. Normally she'd be worried about food served with this kind of technology level but this is probably the safest food around. Pure magically created breads and cheese.

    She takes a couple bites of it, "This is pretty good!" Honestly she wasn't sure what to expect, but it was better than some store bought breads that's for sure.

    "Uh huh..." Lucas answers eloquently.

    Fight in the tournament? I guess my situation is not that bad...

    I would list them by name, but I am afraid that asking for John, would not bring the results I expect. And Lucas (the character) should know their last names, or physical description if needed.

    The wizard look at you. "We're suppose to be adding some final touches to the banners and arena, for the tournament for the Princess's birthday. After that we pretty much have the day to ourselves, to study and celebrate. Maybe make some more magical items to sell. We'll see how everything goes."

    He's not super old, but he's clearly at least middle aged. Probably in his mid 40's.

    Reader

    The maid takes the silver piece. "Thank you sir." She says as she bows. "You are to meet up with the other nobles and take place in the festivities for the Princess's birthday. It is important that you maintain good standing status with Princess Teru, but of course you would know that. I believe the meeting place was the castle."

    The crystal thinks for a while, before listing off broad generalizations for the other's positions.

    "That's all I really know, but I've never heard of this Morithias guy. There's the Mouri family to the west, but he's not in charge of them."

    After finishing a quick breakfast and cleansing himself, Danil plunges into prayer and meditation. The familiar sense of God's presence enfolds him, stronger and clearer than usual outside church. He spends a little time simply luxuriating in the clean and pure joy of God's presence before reluctantly turning his thoughts back to the real world.

    God, please grant to me the wisdom and the power to spread your glory today. May my body, mind, and soul be expressions of Your power, and my word and deed witness to your truth. In the name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, so be it.

    As Danil opened his eyes and began to pack, the comforting sense of God's power faded, but it did not pass entirely, and Danil knew that God had granted him strength and power this day.

    Danil quickly clad himself in his fancy suit of clothes, donned his armor, packed his supplies, and set off for the castle. He was not terribly surprised to find that he had a horse with which to do so.

    So we are all here... except Morithias maybe... or it is just that he wished to be a spy or something and is not so well known as the rest of us...

    He finally reaches the castle and tries to look for someone to show him a way, so he could deliver the letter.
    First things first, later I will look for others...

    A guard nods to you and takes you into the throne room, where who you assume is the young Princess Teru is waiting doing some work on some other letters.

    "Present yourself, and state why you are here." She says calmly. Although her voice is strong, it's a sweet voice that shows little arrogance or hostility.

    Please note. Lucas would ask Loiosh how he should behave and what to say as he walked to and inside the castle. So any mistakes in etiquette would be mended in preparation stage.

    "That is your choice, Sir." The squire says bowing before heading off to the squire's barracks to get changed. Eventually coming back in medium armour, and mundane equipment, clearly not masterwork. "I am going to head to the Arena now Sir to do last minute preparation." He bows again and leaves towards the arena area. Clearly nervous about his future in the games.

    Lexin

    The Princess's aide takes the letter, and hands it to her, which she opens and reads. "Ah...I see. So they need funding to finalize the link between Oda and Hara." She scans it a few more times, before taking out some parchment and writing a quick reply her penmanship is excellent, and fluid like that of a ruler, which makes sense. She seals and hands you the letter. "The funding will be approved. My economics minister Lee, will report to the guild with the funds. I look forward to future work by the psionics guild." She nods to you. "Please give my best regards to your father and the guild. You are dismiss." As you're about to leave she says one final thing. "Oh, and be sure to enjoy the festivities today."

    Reader

    When Danil reaches the castle he is greeted by the guard. "Baron Danil. You grace us with your presence. Please proceed into the dining hall. There are some basic refreshments there. Princess Teru is checking over some last minute paperwork before the festival begins. She will greet you and the other nobles shortly. She had told me, to tell you to enjoy yourself at the festival."

    Rupert woke up after what seemed an eternity, sunshine filtering through his eyelids, "Wow, it's been a while I sleeped so much..." he looked around, still not completely lucid "Why mt phone didn't rang, and why there is so much light."
    It took him a few seconds to realize "What! Where am I?" he rose hurriedly, looking franticaly around "I am going crazy."

    ~Reader~

    You eventually find your way to the dining hall, and find the other nobles there in discussion, you listen in and find they are talking about the Princess taking heir to the throne.

    "So what do you think Baron?" One suddenly asked you. "What do you think of the Princess coming of age?"

    ~Zman~

    You find your way to an open arena that has a bunch of young kids and teens running around, squires, getting ready for their matches. They're training with dummies and with each other, and a healer is on hand tending to any minor wounds they take.

    ~Lexin~

    "Well the coming of age ceremony is at noon, after that the parties begin, celebrating another generation of leadership. Then after today, it's back to the daily routine."

    ~Blue~

    You hear noise from the beds that seem to line the room, you appear to be in some sort of dorm.

    "So what do you think we're going to cover in class today?" One boy asks another, that you can hear even though you can't see them.

    "We don't have class remember, the festival?"

    "We still better prepare our spells anyway, just in case something happens."

    "What about Rupert?"

    "Meh, let him sleep. It's not like they expected the students of the academy to do anything for the festivals. At most we'll be asked to do a dancing lights show."

    They laugh and start getting dressed.

    Danil shrugs. "I think it is a great gift to the realm to have a new heir, ready to take up the throne when necessary. Is that not why there is such celebration?"

    [OOC] What's the available food? [/OOC]
    [OOC] Various noble foods, breads, fruits, etc, mostly small eats, before the actual meal at the festival [/OOC]

    "Makes sense I suppose." one noble replies and goes back to eating slowly.

    Zachary simply watches the squires spar, probing the depth of his understanding of fighting techniques.

    The squires notice you, but do not comment. Most of them are well-trained, not quite on your level, but it's clear the kingdom puts heavy focus on their military forces. Occasionally you'll spot problems with their form, but they're just kids.

    Your squire is sparring with a red headed girl, and she's kicking his butt. Almost fighting him without a care in the world. She looks like she'd almost be better than you, she also seems very defensive in style. Your squire is slowly growing tired and eventually gives up trying to hit her. You notice she's the only one here wearing heavy armour. You have to question how she afforded the masterwork full plate she's wearing.

    "Aw..." "Ok cliched pinch in the arm check, does not seem to be dream, at least not the usual one." he keeped looking around, more calmly, trying not to look too inconspicuous, from what he saw and heard he was in some soert of boarding school, but of what nature "Back to school hum.". He hurriedly dressed himself and started rummaging through all the nearest stuff, looking for clues.

    Lucas nods to himself... thinks about the directions to the knights quarters and the letter in his hand.
    I could go there... but what if it is just a name coincidence...? Nah, to many strange things happening for anything to be coincidence.
    ... If you don't know what to do, go eat something... it solves at least one problem.

    ...And he resumes walking towards the Psion Guild, trying to decide if he should be proud because he managed to do the task or think of it as a menial task without much importance...
    ...At least I met a princess...
