Your name is Mildred and you are a witch; a full blooded broom flying, potion making, spell casting witch. Well sort of, you would be one if your master hadn't gone and ditched you, so technically you’re just an apprentice witch for the moment and fairly young as well, Sixteen years-old.In a day and age where the control of the Imperial church goes unchecked being in the witch craft business is risky work, but that doesn’t bother you much. This is what you would like to say but due to your rotten luck life can’t be that easy. After arriving at a town named Bordesly, you and new found friend Tamzen were swept into a raid on some forest bandits. Once that was done with you had killed a rouge mage, looted his stuff, and got the local Paladin arrested for the burning of three innocent women, busy day.It’s been a week since then and you’re sure you’ve put enough distance between your group and the witch hunters that would be coming after you. Rounding the bend of the road you see giant white walls surrounding a gleaming city, if you’re not mistaken this is the city of Finchale. Driving up to the gate filled with hurrying people you are suddenly stopped by a city guard.“Sorry miss but this is a random exception”Random my ass, smiling you say “What seems to be the problem sir?”Waving his hand he says. “Nothing much, there have just been a string witch related events going on lately and the local church doesn't like to take chances when it comes to this stuff. So now we need to look at any supplies in your cart or on your person, please step off the cart miss.”How are you going to take care of this guy?>Bluff>Give him the puppy dog eyes>OtherRoll d100, best of three
Current Inventory:1 ornate dagger1 potion of healing3 scrolls of Great fireball1 Scroll of wind-blade1 Scroll of flight2 Scrolls of Invisibility1 scroll of thunderstorm1 scroll of water breathe1 gold coin, 12 silver coins2 bottles of alchemy fire2 mana jewels (needed to create scrolls or enchantments)List of current know spells:Unlock (allows you to open almost any lock without a key)Lesser fireball (Basic combat spell)Charm (Charm other people, must be done through eye contact or touch)Make potion of healing (This takes time and ingredients)Force push (You can affect objects up to six feet away with varying degrees of force)Also side note, I’ve revamped the magic system a little:1) Scroll casting with count as a magic roll (needing to roll a d100), however you will receive a bonus of +30 to the roll when using a scroll2) Creating a scroll is rather difficult as magic hates to be trapped, this will mean you will need a minimum of 70 to actually create one on your own. Also, you can only create scrolls of the spells you know.3) Scrolls will have a time limit of 10 minutes and take up to a minute to cast unless they are insta cast combat spells

We're looking for witches, not little girls."Beaming a smile you move along, haha sucker. After entering the city you hitch your cart to a post and get really to go.Tam asks. "Where are we going">Find a shop>Wander the city>other

>>31126003Wander the city.
>>31126003>Wander the cityGrabbing Tam by her arm you lead her through the streets. It's seems to be really busy today as the roads are jam packed. Walking around you find out that the city has a dock, a merchants area, a university and in the centre is a small castle. After a while you find a street that's a little less busy, while walking down it a man steps out from behind a building, you immediantly notice that he is of the town guard."Well what do we have here" He smilesTurning you bump into another guard and you notice another one standing between the two. You push Tam behind you.>What are you doing?>Who are you>Other
>>31126290>What are you doing?MORE ruffians?
>>31126290What are you doing?"You shouldn't do that--she's just a girl."
>>31126290>What are you doing?
>>31126290>What are you doing?"Excuse us, is there anything amiss sirs?"If they ask what WE'RE doing we say Mildred is a traveling student who came for the university and decided to go look around the city while we're here.
>>31126290>What are you doing?Keeping Tam close you ask. "What's the big idea"Grinning the first one says. "Oh nothing, I just thought a couple of pretty girls like you would want to have a good time."The one next to him laughs "Ya, a real good time"Ok, you don't like where this is going. Sliding your hand down to your dagger slowly you grasp the handle. The three guards also reach for their swords and you all stare at each other for a couple of tense moments.Suddenly you hear "THERE YOU ARE"Everyone turns to see a man in his mid 20's rushing over to you "I've been worried sick about you girls"After looking you over with great concern the man turns to the guards "I'm so sorry about my daughters sir, I hope they haven't offended you"Looking over to Tam you mouth "Do you know him?"Tam shakes her headWalking closer to the lead guard the man quietly slips him a small coin purse "Please forgive them"Weighing the purse a little, he smiles "Well I guess we can let them off, just try to teach them some manners""Will do sir" With that the man garbs you both and drags you away.After turning the conner he turns to you "You were lucky I was here">I could have taken them>Thank you>Other
>>31126681>Thank youCould you explain what that was all about?With guards like these, looks like we're skipping town again.
>>31126681>Thank youAsk if he can direct you to some stores.
>>31126681>Thank youBowing her head Tam says. "Thank you"Rubbing your hand little you say. "Ya, thank you for that but you really didn't need to"Scoffing the man says "Sure you might of been able to scare off a couple of goons but what would have happened if they came back with reinforcements, besides I don't need you making a fuss in my city, well not now anyways"Looking around he says "Look it's not to safe right here, you should come with me">Go with him>No thank you
>>31126913>No thank you.This is a setup.
>>31126913>No thank youWe appreciate the concern, but have things to do. Can't hide forever anyway.

>>31126913>No thank you"Although we're thankful for your help and concern we really should get going"The man frowns "Ok but take care of yourself, there has been a lot of strange stuff going in the city lately."After heading back from the way you came you end up back on the main street. In the distance you see the sun starting to set, guess it's getting kinda late.>Head to an inn>Wander the city more>other
>>31127147>Head to an innNo point taking risks. How are our funds?
>>31127147>Head to an innProbably safer, and we need to stay somewhere.
>>31127191The money is in your inventory and a couple of silver a day should keep you going
>>31127219Ah, alright. Well still, try to be frugal and get a somewhat cheap room, not a cheap inn though because that's just asking for trouble. Decent inn, fairly cheap room.
>>31127147>Head to an innNot wanting to risk another run in with some of those guards you head to an inn. The first one you find is called "The Sleeping Giant", seems like a decent place. Heading in you find the owner by the bar."Me and my friend need a two bed room, what's the cheapest you got?"After some haggling with the owner you get a room for two silver a day (1 gold = 100 silver, 1 silver = 100 copper)Entering the room it seems fairly unused and in much better condition than your used to. Thank god for that. Plopping down on bed you stare at the celling, well that was wild ride.You hear Tam's voice coming from the other bed "Hey, Milly, what do we do now?"Sitting up you say "I really don't know, I guess we just try to live our lives""Ya I guess so" closing her eyes Tam goes to sleep.>Rest too>Go down into the inn>Other

>>31127451>>Go down into the inn
>>31127451>Go down into the innTired you get up and leave the room, careful not to wake Tam up. As you descend the stairs you hear the noise of the crowd getting larger and larger until you're standing in front of the large room you entered from. Inside you see the hustle and bustle of the late night crowd, barmaids are running back and forth taking orders and delivering them while the customers laugh. At one table you see a group of what looks like locals, at another you see what looks like a group adventures judge from their gear, and by the bar you see the owner serving drinks.>Talk with the locals>Talk to the owner>Talk with the adventures

>>31127757>Talk to the ownerWalking over to the bar you take a seat "I'll take a drink"The owner looks you up and down "How old are you?""Sixteen"Filling a cup he hands you it and you take a sip, milk? You're sixteen, not eight. Sigh, whatever."So, as the owner I guess you hear a lot around here"The owner smiles "Well I guess I do hear some things, what do you want to know?">Ask anything

>>31127965"So, I got to know, do you have any quests?"The owner looks at you funny "If by quests you mean washing dishes then I've got loads of quests"You give him a blank stare "Oh come on that was a joke, look if you're looking for adventures as those guys over there" He points towards the adventures."Oh, ok, by the way can I ask about the guards"The owner shakes his head "Bunch of trouble makers they are, the church says they're here for our protection but all they really do is rob us and hunt down any one that doesn't agree with the church. Half the towns fed up with them""Ya, me and my friend had a run in with some of them earlier""You ok?""Ya, a nice man helped us out with them""Nice man huh, what he look like?""Ummmm, he had brown hair and brown eyes and looked like he was in his mid 20's"The owner strokes his chin "Sounds like Rob, he's always trying to make this town better, I just hope it doesn't kill him">Ask something else>Talk to the adventures>Go to bed

>>31128378>Talk to the adventuresAs you get off your seat and head over to the table the adventures are sitting at you begin to hear what they're talking about."I'm telling you Sasha, it's clearly over here" says a blond man with small scar running across his nose as he points to a map.The woman with rad hair tie into a ponytail looks down at the map "Randolf, you have the worst sense of direction ever, if we listen to you we'll end up in another country""Hey that only happened once""Ya once to many"The conversation starts to get heated but when they see you standing there they quite down"Umm can I join you" you askThe woman frowns "I don't know maybe you should sit somewhere el-"Before she can finish the man stands up "Sure you can dear, my names Randolf by the way"Sitting down you scan the table, sitting there is Randolf, Sasha, and two other that look very bored."So sweety, what do you want?" Asks Randolf"Umm well I heard that you were adventures and I was wondering if I could join you"The four of them look at you for a second and then start laughing"What?" you demandWiping a tear from his eye Randolf says "No offence sweety but you're a little young to be in this busisness"Buffing your checks you say "Hey, I'm plenty tough, I fight anything you throw at me"This just gets even more laughter. "Sweety, we only let people we think are strong enough join us" Randolfs says."Fine, then I'll just prove how strong I am"This stops their laughing and they huddle a little bit, after little bit talking they look up. "Ok sweety if you can beat me in a fight then we'll let you join, if you're serious about this then meet us at our adventure guild three days from now.""Ok, I'll be there, and by the way my name is Milly, not sweety."Their table erupts with laughter again, damn it that sounded cooler in your head.Getting up you go back to your room and fall asleep.The next morning you are waken by Tam.

>>31128981Uh, what? You just gave the MC an appointment with the guild. We were just going for conversation, not actually trying to join the group of adventurers.
>>31129001>Explore town moredon't forget to look in garbage cans, they always have neat loot and stuff
>>31129069Welp if we aren't serious about this then we can just ignore the invitation.
>>31129069It might be a good thing, adventurers have incentive to accept the power of a witch, and the church would find it harder to mess with us.
>>31129001Check out the university
>>31129121But we're not trying to adventure as a witch. We're an unarmed/ knife fighter / second rate archer for now.Speaking of which, QM, do we have a bow and arrow and sword from the bandits?
>>31129001>Explore town moreGetting up you head down stairs to the inn. You see that most people have cleared out and those that haven't are asleep at their tables. Exiting you look around, it's a nice morning, perfect for stroll and checking out the town more. But where to start?>University>Docks>Castle
>>31129121I think a low profile might be better than a high profile.
>>31129233Well in the fight you dropped it so no but you could go out and get one
>>31129285University.Docks are begging for trouble.Castle is going to get us inspected.
>>31129285>Universitylets get our learn on
>>31129301-_-I asked to grab a spare sword and bow off of bandits last thread, but I guess we got none.
>>31129285>UniversityWalking around town and asking a few people for directions you eventually make it to the university and if you didn't know what it was then you would have guessed it to be a church. Stained glass windows cover every wall, huge white crosses stand tall and proud on top of the builds, and graceful carved angles hug the walls. Shesh, the church really likes to go all out.After walking around the campus for a little bit you find a huge library, on entering it Tam imminently rushes for the books. Leaving you standing there, as you go to chase after her you hear a familiar voice."Milly, is that you?" Turning you see Rupert standing there.>Hello>Make an excuse>Other
>>31129490uuuh who is Rupert again?
>>31129600Oh, it the first thread you meet Rupert on the boat you escaped on, he's a student of the church. He also believes that you are also a student of the church as well.
>>31129490>Hello"Ummmm hi Rupert, fancy meeting you here""Ya, I know the worlds so small, so how have you been"Thinking bad to the last two weeks you had, you've done better "Ummm good I guess, so how's school going?""Well I just got to the city so I'm still settling in but things are going great, my classes seem so interesting. So, how are your classes going?""Well, they're going fine"From across the library you hear Tam yelp and a small crash"Umm I need to go". Spriting away you head towards the sound.Turning the conner you find Tam covered in a small pile of books. Picking her up you help her collect her things.>Stay for longer>Head some where else
>>31129781> Stay for longer
>>31129781>Stay for longer
>>31129781>>Stay for longerGotta get our learn on
>>31129781>Stay for longerFinding a quite space for you and Tam you both sit down. Tam begins to dig into what she has selected and you search through a couple books until you find a book called "All you need to know about witches". Opening it out of curiosity you find it filled with ridiculous myths like how pouring holy water on witch will make her skin peel or how burning a witch cleanses her soul allowing her to enter heave, so technically it's kinder to burn a witch then just kill one. No wonder everyone hates witches, putting the book back in disgust you continue searching. After what feels like hours Tam stretches her arms "Hey, Milly I think we've been here for long enough">Head somewhere else>Go back to the inn

Apon entering you are greeted by a short chubby man."Welcome customers, ewhat can I do for you?""Well we would like to look at your goods">Potion of health (30 silver each, can save someone's life)>Bandages(5 silver for a roll, used for light wounds)>Pain killer leaves(chew on these and they dull pain, 5 silver a leaf)>Other

Rolled 87 + 60>>31130343Have Tran see what she wants/needs to make potions. Ask the shopkeeper if he has any 'special' items
>>31130343Turning to Tam you ask "What do you need to brew potions?"Looking around Tam says. "Well I need a pot, and a grinding cup, and a few other things" Walking away she goes to collect what she needs.Leaning closer to the shop keeper you ask. "Do you have any 'special' items"Looking around the shop keeper grabs a jar and puts it in the counter "Leaches, they fix almost every sickness""Ummm well I meant more of the magical type special"The shop keeper holds his finger to his mouth and shushes you. Walking around the counter he closes the blinds to his shop. Coming back he grabs a box from under the counter, in it are rolled up paper scrolls."Blank scrolls, every mage needs them">Buy some blank scrolls (20 silver each)>Nope
>>31130574Hm, buy 1. We can use it later if we find a useful spell to make a scroll of.
>>31130574Looking over all the supplies you pick out 1x bandages, 1x pain killer leaves, and 1 scroll.This cost about 30 silver, a little later Tam comes back with the basic equipment she needs to brew potions (Big pot, grinding cup). After talking with the shop keeper you get the stuff for 20 silver. After everything is done you spent 50 silver. Leaving the shop you see it's getting late.>Head back to the inn>Go where else
Rolled 2 + 60>>31130574he is either scamming us with normal paper or selling us a ok item. plus can't we just cast a spell insted of a scroll
>>31130833>Head back to the inn.We are not dealing with guards or other shit right now. Lets get our stuff safe and proper.
>>31130855Mildred's a witch though. She should know if it's just a regular paper scam.
>>31130855That's true but casting scrolls makes your life much easier
Rolled 57 + 60>>31130833>Head back to the innlets head back and go over all of the notes we got form that rouge mageAlso lets ask the barkeep if there has been any news on captured witches we could save
>>31130833Back to the inn.
>>31130833While heading back to the inn you see a large crowd gathered in a square, some seem to be watching with long faces while others cheer.>Check it out>Pass it
>>31130943Ye gods, a witch burning? Pass.
>>31130943>>Check it out
>>31130943>PassWe don't want to be caught out after dark.
>>31130943>PassTam stands and stares for a little at the crowd but you quickly pull her away. "You don't need to see whatever that is"After walking for a bit you make it back to the inn. Inside is almost completely deserted except for the owner. Walking over you ask "Where is everyone, what's happening?"You owner gives you a grim look "They claim they caught a witch and they're holding a trail for her right now, if it goes like these things usually go then she'll be sentence to death tomorrow.""Do they know if she's a real witch?""They claim she is but I wouldn't put it pass them to execute her from a different reason and then claim she's a witch."Taking in this troubling news you head upstairs to your room. Once there Tam sets the stuff she got down and falls asleep, soon you follow too.I think that's it for tonight, I'll continue tomorrow. Also I want to apologize for starting this latter than usual.
>>31131062that's hardly a concern when the whole crowd is out.
