    A Second Chance
    Spoiler: OOC

    This is the IC thread of A Second Chance.
    You can find the OOC Thread here

    Spoiler: prelude
    Show

    All you know is darkness. Darkness and cold. It surrounds you, it envelopes you. It is you. Past, present future, all doesn't matter, all is one. There is no love nor hate, emotions and feelings don't exist.

    A voice. You hear a voice. It forms a strange melody and even stranger words. Like a claw it grabs a part of you and rips it out.
    For a brief moment it stutters. This gives you the opportunity to hold onto the voice. To follow it. It leads you out of the darkness into the light. Yet the cold still remains. Then the feelings start to flush over you like a flood. Love and hate, joy and pain, all at once. All feels a little dull and distant, but it feels good to feel again.
    You start to be yourself once more. Only the memories of your time before the darkness are still missing.
    The light gets bright, very bright. Your eyes hurt. Slowly, very slowly they adjust themselves.


    You are laying in a room. It seems to be a cellar of some sort, the walls are made of large stone bricks and the ceiling is made of some rough looking wood. The interiour is a weird looking collection of morbid things. Skulls and black candles are all over the place, from the ceiling hangs a large chandelier made from human skulls. In one corner is a table next to a chest. On the table is a mess of old rags and rusty weapons. A set of stairs lead to a trapdoor above. The floor is covered in magic symbols, circles and eyes.

    In front of you stands a young man, dressed in expensive black robes with silver clasps and buttons. He wears a necklace with a large silver skull and holds an old tome in his hands. A tiny rat sits on his shoulder. He has stopped chanting and looks at you.

    Next to you are four skeletons lying on the floor. Each of them has its left eye socked filled with a ball of onyx, the other one has a tiny dot of green light in it. Just like you do.

    The man in front of you starts to cheer when when he sees you move. "We have done it Sir Rendoman, we have done it!", he says to his rat. He then coughs and puts on a straigh face.
    "Rise my minions! We have things to do! Hear my first command: Stand up!
    And then go to the table and dress and arm yourself!"
    He then turns around and points at the table. He clearly doesn't seem to realize that you are not mindless.

    A human set of bones does rise up. Confusion fills its mind, but without a brain where do those thoughts come from? It looks around the room without proper eyeballs in its sockets. The room seems to bounce uncontrollably at first between full color to black and white. Magic symbols on the floor, what are they? Weapons are mentioned. Yes, being able to protect itself is a good idea. It goes to the table. Short of there being a spear laying up against the wall it takes a couple of rusty daggers. It then pretends to study the daggers but has turned in a way to face the room and is actually studying the situation.

    Another skeleton rises. This one does not move to the table immediately. It clacks its jaw. Why was the stupid young man giving it commands? It... it did not feel right, it was not an it but it could not yet say what it was. What it had been. Certainly not a minion. So it stood and studied the young man, until it decided that its questions might be answered more quickly if it had a weapon in hand. It studies the weapons on the table, looking for one it might prefer.

    Another skeleton rises to a sitting posture, its empty socket traces along the wall until they fall upon the man... Speaking to his rat. He attempted to show a look of disdain, not yet realizing his state made the attempt a futile one. He would look to one side, a slight twitch running through his skeletal form as his gaze fell upon one of the other skeletons? "Undead? Where am I?" Still, they showed no immediate hostility, perhaps they were under the control of the wizard. At least he assumed the man was a wizard, probably a mentally unstable one at that.

    He would plant one of his bony hands upon the ground, and pushed himself up. In doing so realized that felt... wrong. The hand he had used to push himself up would raise up in front of him, only for he skeleton to suddenly freeze in place as its "eyes" caught the first glimpse of the limb. After a moment of shock, the other his other hand, a right hand with the bones from the fingertips all the way to the wrist stained a deep black. His gaze would shift from one hand to the other. What is this?

    Images. Hazy and indistinct. Sun. Sand. Blood. Fragmenting and spinning away well before they could be focused on. Fading into darkness

    But then, something bright. Something burning. Something to focus on. If there was focus, there was SELF.

    And something was calling it.


    It opened its eyes.

    That wasn't right, was it? It had no eyes. It? No, it had a self. He. Yes, it was a he once.

    'Stand'

    He was indifferent. Why not? Standing was as good as lying there. At least it was something. Yes, there was a world around him. Distance. Objects. Sound. Color.

    Weapons.

    He remembered that, it only in fragments. Motion and fluidity. Jerkily he rose to his feet, rattling towards the table. There-- twin short swords, faintly curved. And old bow. Fingers twitch over them, rattling on the wood.

    He focused on that. That made things far more clear. Fingers shouldn't look like that. Ah, he must be dead. But where was the fire, surely hell could not be so... small and tawdry?

    The last skeleton slowly rises to its feet in a shaky way. He was not used to being... well a skeleton. He did not being given orders, for in his previous live he remembered being free, with no obligations or bonds. However he also knew that he shouldn't just ignore the order, until he was more powerful. There was a possibility that this person would destroy him if he did not listen.

    He walked over to the table, and looked at the extensive pile of weapons and armor. Looking through he remembered that before death he liked leather armor, more specifically the one reinforced with studs. For a weapon he chose a scimitar, one of the weapons that he had trained with.

    After getting himself armed he turned to the man that had brought him to life. I have one question for you, are you a wizard or some sort of arcane spell caster, or a cleric or some wort of divine caster?

    In the mess of weapons and cloathing you find a few daggers, two twin shortswords, a short bow and a scimitar.
    There are others laying around, two light crossbows and a couple of bolts, a morningstar, a battle axe, a sickle and a warhammer. Against the wall leans a scythe. The only other two handed weapons you can spot are two crossed halberds behind a heavy shield that's been used as decoration.
    The weapons all look very old, rusty and tarnished.

    The bundle of cloathing you see is mostly made of black robes and cloaks with large hoods, but you manage to find some leather and studded leather, as well as a hide armor. Almost hidden underneath the hide you spot some scales. They are old and very rusty, almost falling appart. The hide and the leather look very old aswell, tarnished and with parts where patches are missing. But they will do the job.

    Your voice sounds like the lid of a coffin being shut, you havn't spoken in a very long time.
    The man looks at you in shock, his eyes wide open. He then emits a high pitched scream and jumps back. Then he starts to chuckle nervously. "You almost got me there Sir Rendoman, I know that Skeletons can't speak." The Rat squeeks and hides in his collar.
    He then turns arround, not without giving you a last nervous look.
    "So now dress my minions, and hide your face underneath a hood, so noone shall see your face and see that you are no living men." he says with a shaky voice. He calms himself quickliy.
    "And hurry, we have work do and not much time"

    The skeleton shakes it's head. Stupid and delusional. She would have to...! She, that was it. And with it, the realization that few of the weapons were suited to her. Robes, yes, but weapon and armor? A dagger, a crossbow, the morningstar if none of the other skeletons picked it up... Of course, she couldn't be sure they were all intelligent. One had spoken, with the voice of a man. If she could distinguish him, he would be the one she stayed near for now.

    Delusion. that is what he heard in those words. One of the skeletons had spoken, that should be impossible. THIS should be impossible. A sense of panic was welling within him, a yearning for answers to... A lot. But he kept it in check, for now. Instead slowly dragging over to the table. Among them, his skeletal phalangeshands would pick up a dagger, as well as the morningstar, also pulling on one of the suits of studded leather. His blackened right hand would grasp the crossbow, hollow sockets staring intently, before relinquishing grasp of it. Finally he would don the robes on top of this, best to just play along for now.

    "Good my minions, very good indeed! You have a task waiting for you!
    Tonight is the perfect night.
    You shall go to the laboratory of my arch-rival and destroy everything inside! But do not kill him if you see him. No no, Not yet. But I think he will be occupied with other things anyway ahahaha!
    You know your task Sir Rendoman? Show them the way.
    Minions! Follow the Rat and destroy all that's in the Laboratory!
    No one will know it was me ahahaha!"
    He laughs manically, but it sounds a little fake.

    The Rat squeeks eagerly and hushes towards the trapdoor.

    Assess. Plan. Execute. Never catch them when they are on their guard...

    The sorcerer thought them mindless. At least some of the others were not. But best to keep that silent for now. Not to let the sorcerer know.

    Where had that come from? More fragments. His hands acted with practiced ease, outside his focus. A layer of black robes, then some rusted chain shirt.. then bindings to catch the slack, to hide its rasp and rustle. Another robe over that. Some tested movements. There, as close to silent as he could.

    Boots. Something to hid the rattle of bone on stone. He started tearing some of the tattered robes into strips, wrapping his bones. When it's enough to muffle his movements he stops and stands silent and unmoving, awaiting orders. When they come he silently drifts after the rat.

    Given that there's scale in there, would I be right in assuming a chain shirt is a safe bet?

    As you are looking through the mess of cloth you find some interlocked metal rings.
    You pull a chain shirt out of the pile, together with a cloud of rust. It is badly corroded and many rings are missing. This thing hasn't seen oil in a very long time, but it will do its job.

    he would pause for a a moment, the most minute glimmer of azure momentarily lighting within the shadows of his eye sockets. He would swept his gaze briefly across the room. "Interesting."Still, best keep up this charade. the caster might be delusional, if not outright insane, but could very well hold considerable might.

    Clutching the morningstar tighter in his cold, dead grip, the skeleton slowly took steps to follow the rodent.

    She follows the rat, almost letting out a sigh (how does one sigh as a skeleton?) at the laughter of their summoner. Perhaps his rival was better suited to answering questions and wouldn't be so... annoying. The robes and boots on, with a dagger strapped to her waist and the crossbow and its bolts readied, she made her way after the rodent, being sure to keep near the skeleton who had spoken earlier.

    With determination one of the skeletons put on one of the pairs of the studded leather armor, and one of the scimitars at his belt. Finding a cloak with a deep cowl and a pair of old, but still whole, boots. When he had finished getting equipped he turned to the man commanding him I asked you once already, you did not answer. Are you an arcane spell caster or not. This information is vital for knowing what will happen in this... attempted sabotage.

    The skeleton that had rose first turned back to the table to better equip from the table now that there was no immediate threat. He took the other crossbow and some bolts to the side for himself the went to the clothing pile. He was lucky to find another metal pile of rings that would give some protection. A chain shirt over a bare skeleton made a strange non-fit but apparently there wasn't much time. Comfort not being an issue the skeleton then grabbed and donned a black cloak with hood. All that clothing was one thing, but putting rotten and rat-chewed boots on skeleton feet with skeleton fingers was another level. He needed to stay focused on the moment to make sure there was time later to figure out what was going on. While working on the boots he realized he knew about skeletons being animated, but that he and the others were thinking and acting on their own was beyond what he had learned, somewhere. That this living human had animated several skeletons meant he had some significant skill with magic.

    Picking the crossbow back up he tried prepping it. The rusty parts made it tough but he finally broke through the rust. The daggers went into the cloak's pockets.

    Clothed and armed, he turned his gaze to each other skeleton in turn. Without skin or eyebrows there was no emotion to read. Finally ready to go the departure is interrupted by the skeleton with the scimitar. This would be interesting, and the time to start figuring out what was going on and who the living one was.

    The man stares at you blankly. After a few seconds of just stairing he says "The skeleton speaks, the skeleton really speaks. How is that possible, they don't have lungs! They don't have brains!"
    He then gives you a nervous look
    "I... I am no priest of some sorts, I am... more of an Arcanist."
    He tries to calm himself.
    "Now go and do my bidding"
    He starts to flick through the tomb in his hands to find some kind of answer to the mistery, mumbling things under his breath.

    The Rat squeeks eagerly and points towards the door with it's nose.

    The skeleton followed the lead of the rat, before pausing, bare phalanges grinding against the worm-chewed handle of the morninstar, before taking a few steps of it previous path to lean over and yank free the shield that had been serving as decoration, knocking over the halberds in the process. It felt strange, heavy. With no flesh upon his bones, his body felt lighter, his center of balance shifted that much more easily by the weight of the shield. This would take getting used to.

    You yank the shield free, feeling the cold and heavy steel against your cold bones. It's a weird feeling.
    Once there was a decal or something alike painted on the shield, but the colors have faded and you are not able to recognize what it once was.

    The Rat is waiting in front of the trapdoor, waiting for someone to open it.

    When the arcanist buries his head into the tome, the dagger and crossbow skeleton shakes his head in disbelief then heads up the stairs. As he passes the rat he flicks the rat at the wall with his foot. Without looking back he pushes the trapdoor open and climbs through. Covered from head to toe he studies the new surroundings while waiting on the rat to catch up.

    When you open the door, as if you flicked a switch, sound from outside washes over you.
    You can hear the sound of seagulls screeching and waves washing on the shore. And then shouting and screaming. There must be a battle going on somewhere.
    As you step through the door, you realize that you are standing in a back ally of a larger city. The air smells of salt, smoke and too many humans living in tight space. The wind is cold and the sun has just set.
    The ally comes to a dead end on your left hand side and leads onward to your right. The sound of battle must be coming from somewhere behind you, but there are buildings in the way, so you can not see from where.

    The rat comes through the door limping, trying to avoid your feet as good as it can. Once it is outside it looks at you angry, or at least you think so, holding one of its tiny paws close to its body. Then it moves a few feet to the right and seems to be waiting for the others.

    The skeleton who decided to stay near the speaking skeleton, now in robes and with a crossbow in hand, decides to follow the rat outside. She pauses at the sight and sounds of battle. Strange. Is it wise to pursue a petty rivalry in the middle of a battle?

    As you walk outside you notice a small booklet, bound in uninteresting looking brown leather, laying on a shelf next to the stairs.

    She picks up the tome and flits through a few pages. Perhaps it was their summoner's journal. It could provide insight on what was happening

    It is empty, except for the first page.
    It contains a few words and a drawing of a movement, written in dark ink. The whole page is covered with side notes and scribbles on how to correctly pronounce the words and how to concentrate. Much of it is incomprehensible but you are sure it must be a spell of some sorts, written by a Person trying to learn it but who had clearly no Idea of the practical use of magic.

    Away from the wizard but aware the rat may be able to communicate at some level to its master, the rat-abusing skeleton finally speaks after a small cough to test his voice. . "A distraction makes the perfect time. Since he isn't coming along, did he assume this is a one way trip for some mindless undead? With who the target is there are probably magical protections, but also items of note for us to keep instead of destroying. The sooner we get there the more time we have before the battle ends. What is in the book?"

    The skeleton closes the book, but keeps it close. A spellbook would prove useful and holding it felt natural. A novice spell for moving small objects. The writing is amateur, but there can be no mistake.

    Taking a moment to secure to strap of the shield as far as it would go, it still rattled slightly against the bones of his forearm. It would have to do. The skeletal creature would follow up the trapdoor both the rat and the other skeletons. Somethign had seemed off about them, but he found himself still surprised when they spoke as well. He would humm for a bit. OR try to at least, wht cam out was more of a coarse noise, like a pair of granite slabs being rubbed together. "I suppose I might as well drop the charade." He would speak, pulling up his hood slightly so as to see a little better. "It sounds as though a battle of some size is going on. Perhaps our arcanist "friend" is using the ensuing chaos to eliminate a competitor. What a fool." There was a certain air of class to the voice, of which it was mostly robbed by the slight hollow echo it carried.

    After letting the others go out before him the last skeleton stood right in front of the trap door. He looked over his shoulder and the necromancer and smiled. This was no regular smile, this was one of those ones that imply something bad, or some fiendish trick is going to happen. Then he turned away and finished walking up the steps.

    When he entered into the room he looked around. Finally! I can smell the sea, feel the warm summer air, see bird flying above, and know nature is still with me. So what have you guys found? the Skeleton asks his comrades. And most importantly what are we going to do?
