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. You make due though and lately things have been looking up, going on an adventure, becoming a warlord of a magic city, helping out in a revolution; busy, busy.
>>33382219As your eyes flicker open, barely any light fills them. Shifting your head back and forth slowly you see that darkness surrounds you, must be night but something doesn't feel right. This darkness stretches on as far as you can see and there is something else about it…. Like it’s unnatural.This scene feels familiar to you though but you can’t seem to put your finger on it, clearing your head of the uneasy feeling with a good shake you look down and see you’re floating. Slowly touching down on an invisible floor a thought crosses your mind, where are the others?Cupping your hands around your mouth you shout “TAM!? JODIE!? GUYS!? WHERE ARE YOU!?” As your voice leaves your mouth it bounces all around and echoes into the distance. You try a few more times but no response comes.Suddenly off in the distance a speck of light appears and holds steady. Smiling at the sudden appearance of this light source you take a step towards it, as you do a breeze passes by and you make out a light whisper on the wind saying “Danger… follow me…”>Head towards the light>Follow the whisper
>>33382263>>Head towards the lightNope. Fuck you whisper. You aren't the boss of me.
>>33382291>Head towards the lightSpinning on your heels you look around franticly and shout “Who said that?! Who’s there?”. The only reply you get is the dead silence. Choking back fear you turn and sprint towards the light. Light is safe, light keeps away the darkness.Soon the light begins to grow brighter and you can make it out as a bonfire. Getting closer you see some figures standing around the fire just staring at it. Coming to a halt within the fire’s light, you stop and bend over breathing heavily. After a minute you suck in air you and stand up straight, examining your surroundings. In front of you is a roaring fire that seems to dance but like everywhere else this place is also pretty bare, turning your attention away from the fire you take a look at the figures you saw before. Now that you’re close enough to make out their faces you see that it’s your party.Sighing in relief you smile “Where were you guys? I though I lost you”When none of them reply your smile slowly fades “Guys?”Walking over to Tam you wave your hand in her face but she doesn't take her eyes off the fire. Stepping backwards, the uneasy feeling returns.>Nope out of there>”Guys? What’s going on?”>Get them away from here
>>33382803>>Get them away from hereLet's start with Tam. She's the weakest of the group, which means when she turns on us we can beat her to a pulp.
>>33382921>Get them away from hereSomething doesn't feel right. Darting your eyes between the party and the fire you say “Let’s get out of here…”When none of them make any attempt to move you grab onto Tam’s arm and pull her to her feet “Guys, we’re going. Right now”Turning around you take a step but stop dead in your tracks. The camp is completely surrounded by people of various ages and size, ranging from young to old, tall and short, but the only thing they share is the blank look on their face.As you stare in shock one of the people yells “Burn the witch!” and soon the whole mob is yelling and throwing objects at you. Taking a few steps back you feel something clamp down on your arm. Yelling out in surprise and pain you turn to see Tam staring at you with the same blank look, you try to pry her hand away from your arm but her grip is like a vise.Wincing in pain you say “Tam let go, we need to get away”Continuing to stare at you see says “Burn the witch, make her suffer” and her voice joins the others.As you franticly pull on your arm the mob moves in but right as they are upon you the light suddenly goes out leaving you cowering in the dark.Off in distance you hear laughing and a voice passes by your ear “Scared are you child?”>Who's there! Where are you! (Anger)>What happened? (Confusion)>Run
>>33383499>Who's there! Where are you! (Anger)Fuck you!
>>33383582>Who's there! Where are you! (Anger)Lashing out you yell “Who’s there? What’s going on!!?”The voice chuckles “No need for that child, we are not your enemy”A second voice speaks out “Yes, we have given you power in your time of need have we not? It is them who are your enemy”Gritting your teeth you say “You mean my friends? They would never do that and you know it! This is all fake!”A third voice glides past you “No child, this was a vision of the future, a gift you can say. Those lower than you will always seek to destroy you”On the opposite side of you the first voice says “Agreed. One with your destiny cannot befriend others, you must rule them.”Turning to the voice you scream “And what destiny is that?!”Quickly something grabs your throat and lifts you into the air. Gasping, you claw at what ever it is but your hands pass through nothing.As you struggle red eyes appear all around you and slowly the first voice booms “Be careful how you talk child, we could destroy you were you stand”Coking out your words you ask “Then why don’t you?”The voice laughs “You are important, you are the deliver of doom to the unbelievers. You will be the one to bring back the true gods of this world” choking you tighter the voice adds “Remember it”Suddenly light floods your vision and you rocket forwards smashing your head into something hard. Rubbing your head you look down to see Randolf clutching his nose and rolling around on the bottom of the cart.You hear a loud laugh and looking over to the end of the cart you see Sasha smiling at the scene. Giving you a smirk she asks “Bad dream?”>How’d you know?>You could say that>Don’t want to talk about it
>>33384246>You could say thatTell them.
>>33384246>You could say thatTell them
>>33384348>>33384363>>33384492>You could say thatGrumbling you stand up and step over Randolf, hoping down from the cart you say “You could say that”Patting you on the back Sasha says “How about you give me the run down on the way to some grub” Gesturing backwards she points towards a makeshift camp.Pointing back to the cart you ask “Umm what about him?”Giving you a lazy wave she says “Don’t worry about him, he’s a big boy” call out she yells “Isn’t that right?”A groan comes from the cart and Randolf weakly says “Yeah, you two ladies go ahead, I’ll be fine. Just a busted nose”Putting her arm around you she smiles “See? Let’s get going”. Before you can say anything she pulls you away towards the camp. Along the way you try your best to tell her about the dream but the details are a little foggy.Once you finish she bares a worried expression but says “I don’t know much about this magic stuff but try to not let it bother you”. Putting her hand on your shoulder she says “Just remember that we’ll always be on your side”Smiling you say “Thanks Sasha”Patting you on the head she points over to a small clearing in the camp and says “Now go get some food while I check on that big baby”As she leaves you turn to where she pointed and see a large gathering of people eating their breakfast. Following a line you eventually get to a large man standing behind a pot, scooping some grey mush out of it he splats it onto a tray and hands it to you. Poking at it with a fork you say “Ugh thanks?”The man grunts in response and you step out of line, well no one said that army life was glamorous. Turning to the clearing you look for a place to sit.>Sit with your group>Sit with your army buddies>See if you can find the commander
>>33385136>>Sit with your group
>>33385221>Sit with your groupPicking your way pass the crowd you eventually find your group, minus Randolf and Sasha, sitting at a table having a lovely discussion, and by loving discussion you mean total chaos. It looks like Jodie and Balthasar are locked in a shouting match about something; both of them look pretty pissed and you think Balthasar’s ears are on fire, Tam is sitting at the edge buried in a book, a skeleton feds Lilith and another holds her down because after every spoon full was tries to wiggle away, Deniece and Weston are sitting beside each other in their usual awkwardness, and Rylan is trying to see how many knives he can stack on top of each other.Staring at this train wreck with your mouth hanging slightly open Tam looks up from her book and sees you, waving in your direction she yells “Milly! Over here!”Rushing over, you sit down and cover your head; looking back and forth you ask “Did anyone see me?”Tam gives you a confused look and asks “What-”Cutting her off you say “Never mind” Leaning over you ask quietly “So, what’s going?”Quickly looking back to the others she says “I’m trying to not get involved so don’t ask me but they’ve been like this all morning.” Looking at little panicked she adds “Don’t tell them I told you that”Sigh, whatever. Well you better deal with the two fire hazards before the whole camp goes up in a blaze, but with Lilith being fussy like that you’re not sure if zombies are going to start popping out of the ground and start eating people, or some early morning teasing could calm the situation down.>Deal with the fight>Deal with Lilith>Teasing
>>33386107>Deal with LilithTeasing so tempting though...but responsible Mildred wins out.
>>33386161>Deal with LilithPicking up your tray, you move over to the other side of the table and sit beside Lilith who is currently gnawing on the arm of a skeleton.Smiling at her you ask “What’s the matter sweetie?”Wiggling in her seat she yells “This food is gross! I don’t like it!”One of the skulls in her hair screams “YOU’LL EAT IT AND LIKE IT MISSY”Whining she says “But masteeeeeeeeeeeeeer”“NO BUTS, ONLY FOOD” with that the skeleton shoves more food into her mouthPicking up your spoon you say “It can’t be that bad”. Scooping up the mush you put some into your mouth and immediately regret it. The mush has almost no taste to it, kind of like soggy crackers. Forcing yourself to swallow you give her a smile “See?”Giving you a suspicious look she asks “You really like it?”Nodding you say “Yep, grown ups eat stuff like this all the time. If you want to grow big and strong you have to eat”It looks like she’s on the edge of caving “I don’t know…”Flashing a small bag in front of her you say “If you finish the rest of your food you can have some candy later”Thinking for a second she says “Deal” and stops struggling long enough for the skeletons to finish feeding her. Sigh, that’s one crisis averted. As you return to your own meal Balthasar suddenly stands and slams the table “Fine! If you want to go fight me right here and now you cow!”Standing up Jodie yells “Come at me you small horned bitch!”Balthasar raises a hand and a small fireball forms while Jodie’s eyes turn a stormy colour. Laughing nervously Tam leans over and asks “They wouldn’t really use magic here….. Right?”>Roll a d100 to calm them down
>>33386990>Egg them on"Fight! Fight! Fight!"
Rolled 15>>33386990Here goes nothing.>>33387173Please no.
>>33387326>>33387173haha you guys are great, writing
>>33386990Leaning closer to Tam you give her devilish grin "5 silver on Jodie"With a look horror she says "Milly!"Laughing a little you raise your hands "Ok, ok, I'll stop them" turning your attention to the stand off you say "Stop that, no, bad" looking back to Tam you ask "Better?"Tam gives you a disappointed look and shakes her head. Sighing you say "Fine mom" and turn back to them but before you can say anything a fireball flies past your head.Grabbing Tam you yell "Hit the deck!" and dive to the floor before a loud boom shakes the ground. Lifting your hands from your head after a few seconds you see that the table you were sitting at has been turned to ash and the two magic charged idiots have turn the surrounding area into a battle field.Tam sits up in shock and stares at the fight "what?"Picking her up you say "Yeah, you better get out of here"Following your advise she runs over to where the others went when this started. Looking at the fight you see that they're really into it, wonder what got them all relied up?>Evacuate the surrounding area>Try to stop the fight>Sit down and watch
>>33387826>Sit down and watchMight as well let them get it outThen we can force them to make up with hugs
>>33387826>Evacuate the surrounding areaBetter make sure they don't damage anything or one.
>>33387826>Evacuate the surrounding area
>>33387826>Evacuate the surrounding areaAs you watch them for a few more seconds you notice that the surrounding soldiers are standing around dumbfounded at the current turn of events. Sigh, if you don't get them out of there someone's going to catch a stray lightning bolt. Shaking your head you walk over to the closest group and say "You guys need to get out of here, like right now"One of the soldiers turns to you and says "You're kidding right? This is the best entertainment we've had all week". From behind him someone call out a bet followed by chorus people trying to get it on the action, turning his attention away from you the man yells "Put me down for 10 on the girl!"Tapping your foot impatiently you say "Okay, not being polite anymore, move it or loss it"Brushing you off the man says "No way, we're fine over here"Suddenly a rogue lightning bolt strikes near his feet causing him to jump back, looking at you with wide eyes he says "I stand corrected"After gathering up the rest of the soldiers you herd them away which gets you a few groans and whining complaints, once that's done you turn back to the fight at hand.The two morons have seemed to noticed that the area has been cleared and are going all out.>Watch the rest of the fight>Try to stop it>You have better things to do
>>33388810>Try to stop itFine, fine.
>>33388810>Watch the rest of the fightYell out obnoxious advice to both sidesStuff like "Win better!" or "Stop sucking!"
>>33388810>Watch the rest of the fight
Rolled 81, 81 = 162>>33388915>>33388953>>33389089story rolls
>>33388810>Watch the rest of the fightWalking over to the perfect spot to watch the fight you grab something to sit down on and get comfortable. Looking over the battlefield so far, they have managed to fill the small clearing with carters and burn marks that would put any catapult to shame.Fling a fireball at Jodie, Balthasar yells "Eat this, fatty!"Diving to the side Jodie laughs and yells "You'll have to do better then that, small horn". As she sends a lightning bolt his way Balthasar blocks it with his sword, yelling back he screams "My horns are a least eight inches, I would measure them for you but you probably ate the ruler"Gritting her teeth Jodie charges forwards yelling "Eat shit, you imp!"Taking the bait Balthasar throws his sword behind himself and charges as well. As they draw closer both of them charges a spell and brings their fists up. All you can do is sit on the edge of your seat as they rapidly approach, pumping your arms you whisper "Go, go, go"At the same time they both yell "FUCK YOU!" and punch forwards, like a scene out of a book their fists connect and small explosion goes off causing you avert your eyes for a second.Looking back you wait for the smoke to clear to determine the winner.... when it's gone both of them are face down on the ground.Looking at them in shock you begin to laugh "haha you guys knock each other out! How does that even work!?"Walking over to them you give them a poke and they're defiantly out cold, shaking your head you say "Man, when you guys wake up you're not going to hear the end of this"Just then a group of steel clad soldiers run in a surround you and the sleeping beauties, one of the man points his sword at you says "Halt any and all magic actives at once">I think that already happened>I surrender>I was framed!
>>33389742>I think that already happened
>>33389742>Already happenedlol they both rolled an 81 for combat and got the classic knocked each other outthat's hilarious
>>33389823>>33389868>>33389869>I think that already happenedLooking down then back at the man you say “I think that already happened”Following your gaze the man looks confused for a second and then snaps back to his serious attitude “Quit being a smartass” turning his attention to one of the other men he says “Jenkins, cuff’em”One of the men breaks from the circle and starts to place shackles on Balthasar, shaking his head the first man says “Not the unconscious one, the girl, get the girl!”As Jenkins fumbles with the locks you say “Look, I wasn’t part of this. Can’t you just take them and leave me?”Laughing a little the man says “No can do, got take you in for questioning”.From behind the man a voice says “No need from that”As everyone turns around you see the commander standing with his assistant, standing up straight the man says “Sir! We have captured the hostiles”The commander just rubs the bridge of his nose “If this girl wanted too she could roast you all”. As the man fumbles for words the commander raises an eyebrow at you and silently questions what happened. Giving him a shrug he sighs “Bring them to my tent; I’ll talk to them there”. Turning he walks away.Turning to his men, the man in charge yells “You heard him!”After a few minutes waiting for the two idiots to wake up and walking to the tent, you’re currently standing with the commander in his tent staring at Balthasar and Jodie, who are refusing to talk to each other.>Question them one at a time>Get them to spill the beans>Make fun of them
>>33390521>>Get them to spill the beans
>>33390521>Make fun of themA double K.O? Who even does that anymore? So cliché.
>>33390521>Get them to spill the beans
>>33390521"Alright. I don't know why you two thought it would be such a fantastic idea to start throwing around fire and lightning in the middle of camp. Be glad all you managed to do was knock each other out, If I hadn't gotten everyone around you to evacuate the area we might have been having this conversation under very different circumstances."
>>33390521>Get them to spill the beansTapping your finger against the table you're leaning on you ask "So, what was that? Besides being highly entertaining."Grumbling a bit they both look away, cupping your hand around your ear you ask "Sorry? Didn't hear you?"After few seconds of avoiding you Jodie finally snaps, pointing a finger at Balthasar she yells "He called me fat!"Glaring at her he yells back "I didn't say anything! All I did was say she had a little more food than the rest of us! Plus she said my horns were small!"As they sit there and glare at each other the commander sighs and sits back into his chair "So your telling me you turned my camp into a battle field over that?"Looking down they both say "Yes...."Shaking his head the commander asks "Are all magic users this crazy?"Leaning over his assistant says "Sir, considering the company I believe that statement is a tad bit..."Looking up the commander says "Aw yes, apology's"Waving him off you say "Don't worry, I don't think you'll ever meet a sane magic user". Turning back to Jodie and Balthasar you say "You guys are super powered compared to a normal person and you decided it was a great idea to start throwing spells around in the middle of camp? If I didn't clear everyone out this could have end very differently and be glad that you only knocked each other out, now what do you have to say for yourselves?"Both of them look at their feet and say "We're sorry">Don't do it again>Sorry wont cut it
>>33391061>Sorry wont cut itThey have to apologize to each other, and sincerely make up, or so help us God.
>>33391061>Sorry wont cut itShaking your head you say "Sorry wont cut it, there is only one way to fix this"They both look up at you expectantly, clearing your throat you say "Hug and make up"They both look at you then to each other then back to you, Balthasar is the first to speak "You can't expect me to hug someone!"Jodie makes some gagging noises "I'm never touch that thing"You give them a smile but your eyes say murder "Oh really? And what do you think is going to happen if you refuse?"Both of them swallow hard and look at each other. Jodie shifts uncomfortably and says "You first" while Balthasar looks terrified.Slowly they move towards each other and pull themselves into an awkward embrace. Patting her on the back Balthasar says "I'm... I'm sorry I called you fat"Jodie nods and says "Sorry about the horns"Quickly they let go and shake it off, looking at you Jodie asks "You happy now?"Giving them a smug grin you say "Very, now don't do it again or I'll tie you together for a whole day"Leaving them with that mental image they leave the tent, turning to the commander you say "I want to apologise for their behaviour"Waving you off he says "Don't worry about it, I get it all the time with my men but those are most drunken fights....""Then I'll be seeing you" bowing a little you turn to leave the tent, before you leave the commander says "Just to let you know we'll be heading out soon"Nodding you leave the tent, stepping out into the camp you can see that everyone is packing up their equipment and loading into carts. Well better help your group do the same, when you reach them you can see that Jodie and Balthasar are staying far away from each other but everyone else seems fine.As you start to load things on Sasha smiles at you "Have a fun day?"Chuckling you say "You wouldn't believe me"
