You go to cast Lightning fingers and the burn at the tips of your fingers starts up. But before your hands are engulfed the electricity dies down and then stops despite your will to keep it goingThe wolf laughs which you think is odd considering he's only a wolf. "You can't escape me, you might've been able to if you had had the Ranger with you but the Ranger isn't with you. But since you're obviously new to this thing, I'll make you a deal.I'll only take one of your virgins you have there.""What!?" >Give the wolf a girl>Flee>He's bluffing, I'll fight him>Other >Last thread: https://warosu.org/tg/thread/S35794586#p35794586>Twitter: @pecan_pie_land
oh this is thread 2 by the way
>>35825282Yeah not happening. Either let us past or we'll have to fight, i'm not leaving the innocent behind. I will fight if you threaten those I will protect.
You draw your sword. "Back away.. Whatever you are, I won't give up the innocent. I will fight if you threaten those I protect." You say firmly. Suddenly you feel a wave of exhaust fall over you, it gets more and more extreme until you drop your sword into the grass. You then too fall and hit your head as you do. Witchcraft is all you think as you phase out of consciousness and you hear"Very well" Time passes, you don't know how much but you're awake now. There's no light until a thin veil of light opens and you see a great eye before you. You see nothing else, hear nothing and only feel the floor beneath you. >Run>attack the eye>other
>>35827662>attack the eye
>>35827662>>attack the eye
You go to draw your blade but you grasp air where the hilt is supposed to be. The eye blinks curiously at you. >run>attack the eye>flee
>>35827986Talk to the eye, ask it what's going on.
>>35827986>use lightning fingers
"What's going on here?" You ask but the eye just blinks and tilts a little bit. Your voice echoes like you've never heard anything echo before. >write in
Your fingers erupt into electricity as you think the spell into life. Soon your hands are burning up, but the eye doesn't seem affected at all. Even when the electricity touches the glaze of it. "Leave it alone. It never responds to anything." A voice calls from the dark>Write in
You look around at the surrounding darkness and a figure draws forward towards you. "A mortal.." The figure says. "What did the forest spirit send you here for?" >Write in>Tell him who you are
>>35828498>>Write inNot allowing him to eat people we were protecting.
"Not allowing him to eat people I was protecting." You say. He nods and steps a little closer. "Yes Yasuo is a terrible ruler." You ask him if he there's a way out and he shakes his head. "We're here until Yasuo is dead." >write in
>>35828683Ask him what he got sent here for.
>>35828683Where is 'here' and how would one kill this 'Yasuo' from it?
>>35828683Well how are we gonna fix that then?
>>35828683>introduce yourself>ask his name
>>35828683what is that giant eye you said to leave alone?
>>35828683"How long will that take?"
You and the stranger have a long conversation where you ask him many things. He answers all of your questions but seems uninterested in asking you anything. His name is Jora and he was exiled into this realm because he tried to escape slavery of Yasuo. When you ask him how you can kill Yasuo from within he says he has no idea. The giant eye and him are spirits, he is a shadow spirit and the eye is another kind of spirit that he's never heard of and knows nothing about. But he says it's not hostile at all. He tells you this realm is Yasuo's prison that Yasuo made himself. Jora has been searching for a way out of the pitch black for months and thinks he has an idea of a way out. He was headed towards a crack in the prison that a tree spirit told him about but when he got to the crack there were forest spirits from the outside fixing it and guarding it. He's been trying to evaluate a plan to escape for a few days now and invites you to join him. >Try and escape the prison with him>try and find your own way>other
>>35843764>>Try and escape the prison with himSounds like as good a plan as any, let's get this jailbreak started then.
You follow him through a few different areas. He guides you past an odd assortment of different spirits just drifting around.He runs much faster than you through the prison realm and you're lagging behind after a few hours of running one day as he comes to a door and goes through it. But before you can reach the door you hear a whining coming from your left. You look and see a glowing well thing. >Investigate the well>catch up with Jora>other
>>35844684>>Investigate the well
>>35844684>Investigate the well
>>35844684Do the well
>>35844684>>Investigate the wellBut make sure this Jora knows what you're doing. Gotta stick together and all a that.
You go towards the well and look into it. Suddenly you feel a jarring shake come across you and a blinding light flashes before your eyes!...You open your eyes and your head feels like it's about to explode. An odd spirit looks down at you and smiles. "He's all better now, whatever stasis he was in is gone." He says and begins packing up odd equipment. >ask what's going on>run >other
>>35846194>>ask what's going on
You ask what's going on but the odd spirit doesn't respond. Instead a woman comes out of the shadows that surround you and speaks. "You were some kind of stasis. Some kind of paralysis. I finally found an amazing spirit healer and he was able to bring you back paladin." >Write in
>>35847734Who the hell are you?
"Who the hell are you?" You ask. "My name's Feona. I was exiled here a few months ago.
This art is shit and your writing is more shit
>>35847846>Ask if she wants to join your party
>>35848611"Do you perchance want to join me on my pursuit of justice?" You ask and she considers for a moment. "What pursuit exactly, we can't do much from inside here." You look around and realize she's right. You're in a world of odd ins and outs, you wouldn't know good or bad in this prison.
>>35848660we should have gone through the door...ask her where she found you. see if you can find it again.if not, explore, and talk to spirits. Maybe you would find someone else who has some idea as to how to escape. Or if not at least might teach you something about magic (might as well spend our time here productively. so that when one day we do get a chance to escape, we possess the skill to use it)actually wait, what kind of paladin are you? the kind with a god? I am thinking praying for guidance might be useful here
You kneel and begin to pray for guidance in this desolate place. Feona watches you for a moment and then laughs. "Your gods won't hear you from in here, not that they'd respond even if they could hear you." You look at her, offended for a moment and then ask her where she found you.She takes you to the well which is no longer glowing and has a large crack through the wall of it. "This is it, there was a demon living in that well but a few good spirits took care of it." She says in casual tone. You sigh and think for a while. "Do you know of anyone who might know a way out of this prison?" You ask, beginning to get a hopeless tone in your voice. "I don't think so, this is a very advanced prison. Escape is usually only due to interference from outside." She says. You're frustrated. You spend a while trying to find the door next to the well but it's gone.. When you ask Feona about Magic she says she knows some but she learned it from someone much greater, a tree spirit she knows. >Learn magic from the tree spirit >find a different kind of magic to learn>Write in
>>35848919>>Learn magic from the tree spirit
"Take me to this tree spirit, if you'd be so kind." "No, no of course." Feona says and takes you. She guides you through the darkness and slowly but surely the area starts to fill with more and more spirits. The area even has this green glow to it and there are even large vines and odd growth here and there. "The tree spirit has made a home for the prisoners of Yasuo here. Though it's not perfect, it's better than the abyss out there." Feona says. "I understand completely." You say. You come to the den of the Tree spirit, there's a mound of dirt piled in the darkness and on it is a great tree. It's roots planted inside the dirt and stone steps lead up to a hollow entrance.You follow Feona as she walks up the steps and into the tree. Within it smells like fresh cut grass and flowers and you see a huddle of spirits and people surrounding the Tree spirit. It is no question which one the Tree spirit is. "You'll have to wait some time to get the counsel of Agathi." Feona whispers to you. You nod and look at the tree spirit. All of a sudden you catch his eye and before you realize what's happening he calls out. "Ah behold, the one that I have foreseen, the one that will grant us freedom from this prison!" Agathi says and gestures to you. "Leave us, leave us" Like a king's nobles they all scatter from the tree, even Feona who gives you a questioning look before stepping out. "You know me?" You ask and Agathi laughs. "No but I know what you will do." Agathi says confidently. "And I know what you have come to me for. I would gladly teach you magic, Paladin." >Accept teachings>Ask him why he favors you, a stranger to him>Write in
>>35849184>>Ask him why he favors you, a stranger to him
"Because my oracle has seen it Paladin. I will aid you in whatever way you desire." Agathi says. "Now would you have me teach you my knowledge of nature? I have many beneath me who know many different forms of combat, magic and so on." >Learn nature magic>Learn _____>write in
>>35849356>>Learn nature magic
>>35849356I was thinking start with the basics, broad strokes. So we can better see and detect magics. So we can see the nature of the prison better as well as interact with our fellow spirits better.Followed by defenses against hostile magics, in particular mind affecting. Something that would have prevented us from falling into this trap in the first place, or that of the demon in the well.Then magics related to the creation and breaking of traps such as the one we are found in specifically. That way when/if we do find a crack here, we could exploit it to break the trap open and release all inside. Perhaps working in tandem alongside our teacher (a circle of mages surely has a better chance of breaking open the trap than a lone one)I guess this all falls under abjuration if we are using DnD terms
>>35849556that all being said, I am interesting in nature magic. It is a very useful magic. After all, it allowed this nature spirit to create this sanctuary for all the others in this void. So I guess adding it to the list can't hurt.I just figured we would focus on getting out of here.The way I see it, either we figure out a way to break out of here once we have learned enough magic.Or we get lucky and end up outside, and at that point manage to kill our previous captor which destroys the prison and releases them all...or just break it open from the outside actually without killing him.also, the nature spirit looks awesome
"I want to learn about magic at first, how to see it and detect it. I am completely unfamiliar with this place and it's inhabitants.""Ah, yes." He looks around with an almost suspicious look on his face and then leads you to an exit through the back of the tree. Agathi shape shifts into a plain and undefined spirit as you do. You two walk away from Agathi's area in the prison and through the black again. "When I first arrived her I found many magical beings, many unlike I had ever seen." He pauses as a random spirit passes by you two. "I think you may be better taught in their schools." You walk intrigued, through a zone of rock that came upon slowly in the darkness. Suddenly Agathi stops and points to a tall structure not too far from him. "Go there and ask for Alyssa. She will know what to do. Tell her I sent you." "Okay." You say, having trouble taking all of it in."Come to me if you have any trouble or help." Agathi says and then leaves. You hesitate for a moment, watching the Tree spirit leave and then looking towards the structure ahead. You make your way there and when you try to enter the seemingly empty place a tall figure appears from thin air and grabs your shoulder. "What's your purpose here mortal?" He asks. "I'm here for Alyssa. Agathi sent me." You say defensively and the figure, lacking any and all definition laughs. "Agathi? Sent you?" He asks and laughs again. Suddenly a woman rushes past the figure and grabs you by the arm. She takes you past him and up a set of odd stone stairs. They go on for quite some time and when to a certain room she pulls you in. "What- are you Alyssa?" You ask but she puts her hand over your mouth before you can finish her name. "Don't say my name." She says but you don't see her mouth open. All of a sudden you realize she spoke within your mind. You tell her that you'd like to learn basic magics and she says of course. You're surprised she asks no questions. >1/?
You wake up the next day to a half elf peering down at you. "You're a new student too huh? Well you should lose the helmet. Won't really need it in this place." His voice is high pitched and annoying. "Say how about you and I have a little duel. A little magic duel eh? After all we're both amateurs no doubt." He chuckles. >duel>deny>write in
