>>1412136[Spoiler]Sorry about the delay on the updates.[/spoiler][===Academy News===]Minor reports of attacks on nearby villages have been televised in local news. It doesn’t seem to be a very major threat, and most believe it is merely a few fey causing ruckuses. No reports of deaths or casualties have been noted, though a few people seem to have gone missing. Some hysterical conspiracists say that the eldritch gods have returned to kill us all, but it’s obviously just a few insane fear mongers trying to make themselves famous.There have been reports by some students that the enchanted woods by the school have grown to be almost impenetrable. The trees have all turned black, and a steady mist expands from the area. Cobwebs have been seen on every tree, and some teachers have reported that the streams coming from the woods are entirely full of a black liquid, that would be extremely unwise to touch. The school administration has stated that examining the woods, or even nearing them, is extremely unadvisable. Teachers will be patrolling the borders of the enchanted woods from now on. First years are strictly forbidden from entering, second years may only come close if they are in a group, and third years have been tasked with examining what is occurring in the woods. Some third years have already vanished, to the dismay of the staff. Most of the students have taken to calling the previous enchanted woods the “Grimwood”. The Academy has set up an Outpost for investigation. The Deertaur had stopped diplomatic communications with the academy several weeks ago, but now they have left a worrying message pinned to the front gate of the school. It was in some sort of black parchment, and written in blood. “We are coming.” Principal Hernandez states that all students and staff must be on guard, and that a curfew is now being put in place- all students must be in their dormitories by 10:30 PM.Principal Hernandez has reestablished the old school organization, [The Watch]. You may sign up in order to help patrol the school, and see whether any problems are arising. However, being a member of [The Watch] requires that one spend at least one action every other turn to patrol the school, at little to no personal benefit. Every three actions of patrolling the school will earn the student a League Point, up until the cap of 9. A tenth League Point may be earned by finding something particularly important, or putting down a major threat. Missing one of these actions results in probation from [The Watch]. Missing two will result in being kicked from [The Watch].
>>1412439[==Madrid News==]Breaking news! Students on the Academy’s missing list have started appearing earlier in the morning. Families and friends are now being informed of their whereabouts. Faculty members, medical team and local authority are on their way to evaluate and take care of the found missing students. More news as events unfold.[===QM Announcement===]Inter-Academy Tournament will be held in the next coming days. For those joining, please spend the action attending and the battle will either be held in thread or in discord.

>>1412443>>1403385[Joachim Johnson]>91, 17It might be that this spell has its own personality. While harassing the fiery power within yourself, it will only reveal itself when the moment is most prefect. You continue to attempt suppressing that explosive moment for longer and longer stretches of time, watching the tail of the Firebolt shoot out in a straight line. You begin to think about the practical applications of such a spell. Obviously the effect is completely worthless in a real dog fight, you couldn't bust it out without your target reacting. Maybe if before shit hit the fan you were in a position unseen, you could be able to get that first shot off. Of course, after the shot went off everybody and their grandma would be on your ass.

How much you become your parents.” “Dad would just take it, said you can’t hit a woman.” a moment’s pause “I’ve been throwing my life into proving him wrong.” She slurs her speech a bit “The last one the one that finally got him to run away. She broke his ribs. You can’t bandage that. You got to get a doctor.” “It wouldn’t be until Summer we’d get word from a Wiseman Construction, they do work out on the harbor. They say he slipped off the pier he was fixing up, but a part of me thinks he might have, well you know, jumped. During the autopsy, the bloodwork the doc did registered positive for mana retention.

Curses Hexes Wild experimentation Monsters from other planes. Did you ever hear about the Kaiju?” He points to tower off in the distance ”Took off the top three floors of the voltration center before the strike team got to him.” In his moment of excitement he coughs and stops himself before continuing “Well maybe not, before your time. One man can only do so much.”“But The school does have liaisons to the local Grimwoods outpost.

Above grounds four mighty and impressive stone statues stand looking outwards towards the four directions. a lion to the north, a shark to the south, a bear to the west and a bull to the East. Each animal statue continuously spewing forth pink mana diluted pond water from their mouths. The plant women onlookers are in awe of your craftsmanship. They have never seen creatures like those before. The tunnel now has breathable air and the pink mana is being funneled out of the temple via a natural ventilation system that uses the wind from outside to push the pink mist out of a series of stone smoke stacks. Plus you have noticed that the local fauna has started producing mating calls… Well, more the usual. They’ve been like that ever since the pink mana appeared in that area.>Pink mist concentrations within the temple has been reduced to manageable levels due to your efficient ventilation systems.

You decide to pick up [I Was a Simple Merchant but Now I’m a Legendary Knight?] again. From what you recall of the first couple of issues you read, it had been fairly amusing, and a nice deconstruction of the traditional hero mangas. However, as you begin getting into Chapter 70, you quickly realize that it had begun to devolve into some trash-tier harem shit. How disappointing. You probably won’t pick up that one again.>>1406619[Markus Milton][Un-unrequited love] +10 to social interactions for next 3 turns>57>DO: With Remi found, track down Ean and take him up on the offer to join his team of like minded students.

>>1412451>>1408041[Jozin Redregard]>87>DO: Improve Psychology. Arthur may will need emotional support.Today’s lesson is about RageAccording to psychologists, rage is an in-born behavior that every person exhibits in some form. Rage is often used to denote hostile/affective/reactive aggression. Rage tends to be expressed when a person faces a threat to their pride, position, ability to deceive others, self-deceptive beliefs, or socioeconomic status. This maladaptive conflict management strategy often stems from cognitive dissonance, most simply put, a 'no' where a 'yes' has been.Cases in which rage is exhibited as a direct response to an individual's deeply held religious beliefs, may directly be related to cognitive dissonance in relation to an individual's ability to manage the terror associated with death and dying. Many researchers have questioned whether Buddhist concepts, such as reincarnation and nibbâna, help ease death anxieties. Coleman and Ka-Ying Hui (2012) stated that “according to the Terror Management Theory, a religious concept of an afterlife helps people manage their personal death anxiety” (949). This suggests that rage, in relation to religious ideas, may stem from an inability to manage feelings of terror.Some psychologists, however, such as Bushman and Anderson, argue that the hostile/predatory dichotomy that is commonly employed in psychology fails to define rage fully, since it is possible for anger to motivate aggression, provoking vengeful behavior, without incorporating the impulsive thinking that is characteristic of rage. They point to individuals or groups such as Seung-Hui Cho in the Virginia Tech massacre or Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold of the Columbine High School massacre, all of whom clearly experienced intense anger and hate, but whose planning (sometimes over periods of years), forethought, and lack of impulsive behavior is readily observable>Gain +2 Psychology>Gain [Rage] Turn 120.

As you continue daring to understand these disparate subjects, the Sigils of the lion of the Creator and the Kinetic Resistance Coefficient weave themselves together in an unfounded pattern. But being so sleepy and tired, your mind just can't make the leap to successfully tie these ideas together. And you end up collapsing into your own bed.

>>1412454Your soul feels lighter than air, floating towards the ceiling of your dorm. Below your body rests soundly as you continue further beyond the ceiling and even roof of the Second Resident Housing Building. Higher and higher you float a persistent torrent whips you above the Academy. From your perspective your entire schooling has transpired in only a few centimeters. Further and Further the Clouds themselves breeze past you as you dare to turn your gaze upwards. The Stars themselves remain so distant. These distant pinpoints of light in the ceiling of Creation move in complete obedience to elaborate, complex laws issued by the Almighty. To dare understand their movements is to see the hidden hand of the Creator. The cosmic wind that swipe your soul from the Earth pulls your soul towards the Gravity Well of a Supergiant Red Star. The angry red inferno scorches your exposed skin, causing your soul to scream in agony. Closer and closer the cosmic wind mercilessly brings into the absolute wrath of the Creator's Laws of this nuclear fire. Until manifested within that burning star is a figure. A Divine Beast just as giant, potent, and graced with such authority. The Lion of the Creator, Ariel, spirit of cosmic winds, wielder of nuclear fire. Speak its name and it may deafen your soul. But today you are not the meek. Your soul invokes its Name and the following Blessing. Instantly the nuclear fire does not scorch your exposed skin. Only now do you see the magnitude of this lion headed beast, its mane red and full of power. Its body covered in a thousand eyes all watching your every movement. And you understand, it is your appeal to laws and powers greater than it, and even moreso greater than yourself, that you stand unharmed by its presence. You awaken with a start back in your dorm bed, completely covered in sweat. The Heater is on full blast and pointing at your head. You grumble standing up to turn the damn thing off. Looking back at your bed, you see how the buckets of sweat have soaked into the covers and you consider a wash before trying sleep again. A drink of water and shower later, and you're back to work at your desk with a new inspiration. These movements, these writings are your own. Unseen powers issue commands and the world spins in obedience. And you appeal to those cosmic laws of the Creator. But they are your appeals and formula. You are the miracle worker.

But first, you need to inform the principal. His secretary lets you in, and you enter his office, with a little apprehension. When you announce that Bob and Jozin will accompany, he sighs. “You won’t change your mind. Very well, I’m a man of my word. You may go.”You can tell his eyes are piercing yours, even through his sunglasses. “However.” He lets a few seconds pass, then keeps on talking. “Be careful, and do not throw your life away. You’re a valuable student, Mr Belrose. You can bring a lot to this country, to this world. But only if you have to stay alive.

Early in the morning, you meet with Bob and Jozin, and, once they’re ready, you all climb aboard the bus. The driver gives you a nod, and you all get comfortable. The bus makes a few quick detours to pick up some more passengers, and then leaves for the countryside. It stops in most small towns along the way, and drops a few passengers every time, until eventually, you and your group are the only ones left. You look at the scenery, and rapidly, you start to fall doze off. After all, you woke up pretty early to prepare.You slowly drift off, the curves of the road rocking you gently in your seat. You’re awakened by the sound of glass breaking, metal against asphalt, and the fact that the bus is doing barrel rolls. You hang on to the seat in front of you for dear life. The bus finally stops in the ditch next to the road. When you ask Bob what happened, he explains that the driver saw something on the road, tried to swerve, and lost control. Thankfully, no one seems badly wounded. The driver fainted, however, and the bus is on its side, stuck in a ditch. You retrieve your bags from the luggage compartment, and get the driver out of his seat. >You are now entering Live Action Mode>[Bob The Jester] [Arthur The Man-at-Arms] [Jozin The Abomination]>You’re lost somewhere in the countryside.

Those eyes give it a regal aura, even when it gnaws on the bathtub rim. Note to the wise, yes he will bite pieces off that porcelain tub given the off chance. Thinking about what a Baby Dragon eats sets your head spinning. You ask your roommate and she comes up with the idea of raw chicken. So you set up a small chicken breast on a plate for the little fellow. He spits acid onto the plate and gobbles up the meat. The plate is significantly melted, but at least the little guy is fed.

>>1412460[Caiden Matthews]Astronomy, not to be confused with Astrology, is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, and chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects and phenomena and their evolution. Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, galaxies, and comets; while the phenomena include supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, all astronomical phenomena that originate outside Earth's atmosphere are within the purview of astronomy. A related but distinct subject, physical cosmology, is concerned with the study of the Universe as a whole. While Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events. Most of this first class is explaining the very distinct difference. But also explaining that most of our practical knowledge did start from astrological beginnings. And the slow understanding that mars and venus are less ‘Gods’ in the sky and more planetary bodies.

[===Academy News===]There have been reports by some students that the enchanted woods by the school have grown to be almost impenetrable. The trees have all turned black, and a steady mist expands from the area. Cobwebs have been seen on every tree, and some teachers have reported that the streams coming from the woods are entirely youwillburninhellfire full of a black liquid, that would be extremely unwise to touch. The school administration has stated that examining the woods, or even nearing them, is extremely unadvisable. Teachers will be patrolling the borders of the enchanted woods from now on. First years are strictly forbidden from entering, second years may only come close if they are in a group, abandonhopeallyewhoenterhere and third years have been tasked with examining what is occurring in the woods. Some third years have already vanished, to the dismay of the staff. Most of the students have taken to calling the previous enchanted woods the “Grimwood”. The Academy has set up an Outpost for investigation. The Deertaur had stopped diplomatic communications with the academy several weeks ago, but now they have left a worrying message pinned youdidn’tpayattention to the front gate of the school. It was in some sort of black parchment, and written in blood. “We are coming.” Principal Hernandez states that all students and staff must be on guard, and that a curfew is now being put in place- all students must be in their dormitories by 10:30 PM.Principal Hernandez has reestablished the old school organization, [The Watch]. You may sign up in order to help patrol the school, and see whether any problems are arising. However, being a member of [The Watch] requires that one spend at least one action every other turn to patrol the school, at little to no personal benefit. nowyousuffer Every three actions of patrolling the school will earn the student a League Point, up until the cap of 9. A tenth League Point may be earned by finding something particularly important, or putting down a major threat. Missing one of these actions results in probation from [The Watch]. Missing two will result in being kicked from [The Watch].[==Madrid News==]Minor reports of attacks on nearby villages have been televised in local news. It doesn’t seem to be a very major threat, and most believe it is merely a few fey causing ruckuses. No reports of deaths or casualties have been noted, though a few people seem to cthulhufhtagn have gone missing. Some hysterical conspiracists say that the eldritch gods have returned to kill us all, but it’s obviously just a few insane fear mongers trying to make themselves famous.
>>1422735In other news, the doctors and local authorities have finished evaluating the lost students found in the academy earlier. Doctors have reported no health issues. In fact, they have even stated that their overall health is better than before based on their past medical records according to the local doctors. Anyone with scars, damaged or missing teeth, amputated limbs or any other lasting medical issues have been miraculously healed “As if they were never there to begin with” says one of the doctors responsible for their check ups. “Hmpf, this is all seems very suspicious to me.” said a local homeless conspiracy theorist “They went missing for a long time then suddenly they all started popping up everywhere, all at same day no less, as healthy as they can be. Like they just went on a magical health spa vacation or something. [He spits at the side, hitting a small brass pot.] Are we really sure that they’re really them and not some sort of imposter pretending to be someone else? I’d watch them closely if I was yous. You’ll see. [the old bearded man coughs a few times before taking another swig of his beer bottle and burps on live television.]”. In the police department’s side during the interview sessions the investigators have found no solid clue as to what happened to them during their disappearances. All of them have reported visions of pink and purple for some reason. As to what this means no one at the local police department has a solid lead as to what these visions means. The investigation for their mysterious disappearance is still ongoing. As of now, the formerly lost students have been sent to their respective families and loved ones.

The exact semantics depends on the language. The concept is a major one in Polynesian cultures. It is part of contemporary Pacific Islander culture. The term came to the attention of western anthropologists through the reports of missionaries in the islands. Its study was included in the topic of cultural anthropology, specifically in the anthropology of religion. Links were seen between it and an earlier phase of western religion, animism at first, then pre-animism.The first modern day reference of mana came from Larry Niven in the 1969 short story "Not Long Before The End", in which mana was a finite resource that wizards used to perform spells.Mana in the practical sense is the energy to call upon the arcane might.

And at this time of the year, they’re usually pretty deserted.With that in mind, you bring her to the Temple of Debod. You heard about it, but never visited it yourself. It is an egyptian temple dedicated to the goddess Isis that was later gifted to Spain by the Egyptian government, in 1968. It is quite impressive, how they moved such large structure from Egypt to Spain. The temple itself is now in a park, near the royal palace. You spend the afternoon with Kyoko visiting the temple. She’s impressed by the temple. “That’s crazy to think that at some point in the past, this was a place of worship, in Egypt. It’s so different from my shrine, and yet... How can I say it, it has the same feel. It’s a place close to Heaven. Isis is the goddess of magic, right ?” Kyoko then seems to have an idea. She takes some incense out of her pocket, approaches the nearest altar, and lights her incense. When you ask her why she did that, she laughs, and answers : “Well, it’s an offering. I was taught to respect gods and spirits, no matter their origins. And I’m sure Isis will appreciate it.” She joins her hands together, and closes her eyes for a few seconds, then comes back to you. “Thank you Devin, that was really interesting.”>+1 relationship with [Kyoko]

And then note an odd thing. The more mana and arcane might you throw around the more the tank responds naturally and loses its mechanical robotic qualities. And then it asks slightly more piercing questions. Where do babies come from? You answer the biological question easily enough, then it asks Where do souls from from. That one you have a harder time with but you basically give it the Term of Self and Essence arguments of who you are. Then it asks, Where did I come from? You made the tank in a garage and say so. … “Does that mean you’re my daddy?” In a way, you built him with your own two hands and his AI is based off of your ideas. But you don’t give him a complete answer. “So those other Walker Tanks are like my little brothers and sisters right? They’re based off of me right?” Well they do hold a number of key similar features. “So I should protect them right?

There are areas where the floorboard still made creaks but overall it’s pretty solid and durable. Ah well, every place has the occasional odd noise anyway.>Damage to the floor has been repaired.>94The tree is now taller than a man and is firmly rooted on the rooftop. It will take Herculean feats of strength to uproot a whole tree out of the concrete. Even if one somehow manages to do such a thing, the damage that it would cause to the dormitory roofing would be significant. Not to mention, you’ve already received a letter of warning the other day. Better not risk it.And so you did Plan B and went to the Gardening Club for advice. You told them of your experiences with the plant. Afterwards you’ve managed to convince a small group of club members to follow you to the tree. As they examine the tree, you noticed that it fidgets and flinches as they poke around with it. One of the steps forward and approaches you. She’s wearing a gardener’s hat. “I have to admit. Of all the times I’ve been on the club, discovering weird flora and fauna, but this one?” She points towards the tree behind her. “I’ve never seen the likes of it before.” she then walks to the side of the roof and looked down. “Though, we do have discovered plants in the garden that uses moonlight as their source of photosynthesis before.” She took out her phone and showed you a picture of a dark blue flower with light blue luminescent petals. “We called them Jena flowers. After the club member who discovered it.” She then drew an invisible hill in the air. “We saw a field of it north-west section of the Fey Wilderness. These plants seem to like growing on top of rock formations and stone.” she then returns to the tree and looked at it from top to bottom. “If my hunch is right, I’d say this tree you got here is a soup’d up cousin of these flowers or at the very least it came from the same region of the fey realm where they originated from.” She then looked at the moon. “Probably from a place where it’s night 24/7. Who knows.” She shrugs.>You’ve learned about the [Jena Flowers].>You’ve learned of the general location of the [Moon Flower Fields] within the [Fey Wilderness].
>>1422761“Oh! almost forgot.” she then opened up her pouch and took out a vial of glowing light blue liquid and showed it to you. “We’ve been collaborating with the Alchemy Club when we found the flowers. Tryin’ to figure out what stuff we can do with it. Turns out it has quite a number of uses. This one, for instance, is a pretty potent sedative. Made from transmuted and brewed Jena flower extract. Makes even the most the angriest of monsters to a calm and chill house pet.” she then put her hands on her hips and smirked “Heh, though the other half of our club managed to make cupcakes out of it. They even have a nickname for it; The “Midnight Snack”. Because it’ll make people relax and eventually fall asleep after a eating a few of them.” she scratches her head. “Pure concentrated vials of the stuff tends to make people unusually sad and depressed. Bawling their eyes out on petty reasons in worse cases.” She put back the vial into her pouch “Hey, come over here for a sec.” A dark skinned students with a long ponytailed cornrows hairstyle hurriedly approached you. He then pulled a baseball sized metallic polyhedron from his backpack. Its markings emit the same glow as the flowers and the tree. He then spoke “This thing’s pretty whacked. Had the Magitech Club make it for me. Used the flowers as a vital ingredient. May looked like a pretty looking glowing paperweight but it can do this.” He then pointed the artefact at a nearby tree on the parking area and began transferring his arcane energies at it. Soon a grey cloud began to form above the tree which soon produced rain. “The plant’s a pretty good catalyst for weather magic too.”>You’ve learned that [Jena Flowers] can be used in a myriad of purposes such as brewing various alchemical potions, cooking enchanted food and crafting arcane artefacts.You then asked them if there is anything you or they can do to keep in check. “Have you tried trimming it? Usually works. Though not always. Especially for fast growing plants. Have to trim it on a regular basis.” You asked them if there was some way of moving the plant. “Hmmm, you said it tends to move on its own when you aren’t looking right? Maybe we can coax it to move to a much more suitable realastate. If this plant is indeed related to the Jena Flowers then it’ll most likely look for a much more suitable place to take root in. A large enough stone boulder placed on top of fertile soil would do. Said boulder should come from a place with high concentrations of fey energies preferably. Makes it feel right at home. Problem is, you’ll have to figure out a way to transport the boulder near your place so that the tree can sense its presence.”>Objectives received:>Acquire boulder.>Transport it near your dorm.>Wait for it to move to the boulder.
>>1422767Another one of them approaches the conversation. She is wearing thick reading glasses. The grade of the lens is so high that it distorts her visage underneath, making her eyes look a lot more larger than it really is. She talks in a heavy lisp “Thith ith a fathinating thpethimen that you got here, Mith. Ith it okay to you if we let uth thtudy it? We promithe not to damage it. Jutht a few tiththue thampleth and hourly obthervation will do.” the hatted girl from earlier intervened and then spoke. “Oh, don’t mind her. She’s pretty enthusiastic when she discovers new species of plant.

>>1422771>26 + 10 Bottle of Château El Toro Blanco 1995>Break out the wine, and have a date with the girls. Let's find out more about them. T5 Character Quest, perhaps.You decide to stay in for the evening and as the Tenia and Isabel sit beside you, you see them throw daggers at each other for a second but end up going back to clinging and leaning on your shoulders. You start the night with a movie. It wasn’t the best and really, it doesn’t look like the girls are interested either. You start to notice the glares they throw at each other as if it was a death stare competition. Now would be the best time to bring out the alcohol. It would easily lighten the mood. You bring out the bottle that Tenia gave to you and after you bring it out, she squeals in delight. Isabel also remembers this and looks excited. “You still have some of wine the wine I gave you!” Tenia saying happily. The thought that you would share the rest of the wine seems to excite her.You pour the wine for everyone and you leave the bottle on the living room table. Isabel starts to test and swirls the drink only a little and tastes it. You can see her face of satisfaction after taking the sip. “This really is a wonderful drink. Maybe you can acquire more of this?” She asks Tenia. Tenia responds unsurely “This was a special request from my parents to the oenologist. I don’t know if they can do that again.” From this, you start to see Isabel’s face somewhat disappointed. Tenia notices this and adds on to what she just said, “BUT, I think they might still have an extra bottle at home. I’ll ask them about it” You just stare at both of them as this conversation continues. They are actually getting friendly. Why can’t they always be like this? Are they like this when you're not around? Is it the alcohol? You’re not really sure about it so you decide not to think about it too much. You are here to have fun tonight as you take a sip from you cup. The drink really does taste great.After a few drinks and conversations later. You don’t notice instantly but you start to hear them being somewhat passive-aggressive in their talks. They throw weak accomplishments and Isabel throwing memories she had with you when you were still children. As this becomes more apparent, you jump in between them and start ask them how they are. “I-I’m fine.” Tenia says as she leans on your shoulder. Isabel on the other hand, not responding clings to you leaning much lower on your arm. You look to her and see her cling down as her eyes are closed. I guess she isn’t as strong to alcohol as Tenia. You take a sigh of relief thinking that the night is almost over and has been great, mostly from the girls looking from having bonded a little. You start to close your eyes but it gets interrupted as you head Tenia start talking from your shoulder.
>>1422775“You know, Isabel isn't that bad.” Wait… did she actually say that? “This was a great night with you (and her). I really appreciate what you’ve been doing for me. I might not be able to do this in the next couple of weeks. Maybe even a month or two.” surprised and curious from this, you just ask why. “As a student council member, I’ve been busy dealing with all the problems from everything that's going on. Grimwoods, complaints on the some plant people and I am still in the works of finding the ‘Jatropha fruit’ for my thesis on poisons. I heard you and your friends are going to go for the Grimwoods, I know I said I was supposed to not involve myself in your personal life but I couldn't help it. I love you and care for you. I would even burn down the whole forest for you.” She gets up from your shoulder and seeing the worried look from your face, she just says “Nothing that I, your top girlfriend can’t handle!” as confidently as she can. She goes and hugs your arm as tightly as you feel her body squeeze on to you. “I love you.” you hear in a fading voice and as you look down, she’s fast asleep. I guess the wine was stronger than you thought for Tenia to get tipsy. You soon fall asleep with Tenia hugging your arm and Isabel now on laying your lap.

Half-humming and half singing a golden oldie classic. And as the storm grow threatening with mighty clashes of thunder, you don't give a single care. The rain attempts to soak you in freezing water, but you give no care. The wind attempts to blow you off your feet, you simply respond in laughter. You face the highest peak of the storm having weather an ever growing terror that sent more sensible persons inside. Much like your dream, you face a phenomenon greater than you in all aspects. And yet again you invoke a phenomenon higher in dominion and authority. For the briefest moment, you imagine the Divine Beast roaring in the thunder. In response you spin, repelling the drenching and chilling rain from your shoulders. And yet, in the rain, in the clapping of the rain on the pavement, the thunderous clatter against stone and the mighty crash in the black clouds, you imagine hearing a coherent message. You can only imagine because there are too many disparate elements to make sense of it.

When I followed them around the store as they picked-up various items, the man saw me, and whispered to his lady friend (the African American female). Quickly, they separated. I followed the man who headed toward a cashier. The woman past us, approaching the north exit, carrying two Tide detergents and a gift bag. She had not paid for her items so I quickly went to her and, about ten feet from the north entrance, asked politely for her receipt. She said she did not have a receipt. I asked her to show me the cashier who rang her supplies. She refused. Meanwhile, the man approached us, blocking my way so the woman could leave the store. I took hold of the items that were not purchased. The two suspects fled the store. I discovered that inside the bag, the female suspect had placed many items that she intended to take (please see separate sheet detailing all the items recovered). The two suspects drove away in an old Chevy truck( license plate # 6N69222), which I was able to make out by standing near the front of the store. Shift Supervisor Carats called the police and they arrived within three minutes time. Five officers were present. Four quickly left to find the suspects. Officer Kimly, the remaining officer, interviewed me. (Please find his card attached.) Officer Kimly asked shift Supervisor Carats if she wanted to press charges.

[===Academy News===]In current news, the Grimwoods threat continues to necessitate regular patrols to ensure the safety of the Academy as well as the greater Madrid community at large. The Principal's Administration previously reestablished [The Watch] as a precautionary measure. But is it enough? Most recently some Second Year students have taken it upon themselves to travel to the [Grimwoods Outpost] in order to tackle the threat where it spreads. Arguably the lost of diplomatic relationship with the Deertaur has hindered investigation of the source of the [Grimwoods Corruption]. Would they not know better what plagues their home? For First Year students and all others this is a reminder that the Curfew of 10:30 PM is still in effect. Please sign in with your Residential Assistants, so that we know you are safe.>Mechanics for [The Watch] >Principal Hernandez has reestablished the old school organization, [The Watch]. You may sign up in order to help patrol the school, and see whether any problems are arising. However, being a member of [The Watch] requires that one spend at least one action every other turn to patrol the school, at little to no personal benefit. Every three actions of patrolling the school will earn the student a League Point, up until the cap of 9. A tenth League Point may be earned by finding something particularly important, or putting down a major threat. Missing one of these actions results in probation from [The Watch]. Missing two will result in being kicked from [The Watch].In other news, students have witnessed a strange arrangements of the Gargoyles atop of Academy buildings. The stone guardians have been seen across the campus perched on the Library. It is known that the Holy Order commissioned the creation and placement of these stone guardians. So we asked the attending priest whose roof is the creation's original perch to help us understand. In response, "Please do not be too overly concerned, unless you are a roofer, haha. These what you might call Gargoyles, or Golems, will not harm anyone. We allow them to roam the campus every do often so that their mobility is tested. And so that if there are problems, we may restore that mobility."And Now returning to news stands after a very long time:[==Madrid Enquirer==]"Harvester of Sorrow"Daniel Olson, discusses his work researching Electronic Voice Phenomena as well as his morbid transformation from skeptic to believer.

He holds out a clawed and scaly hand, and speaks in a heavy scottish accent “AY little Miss. I hear you be wanting some assistance.” He gestures to the boulder “This being the Day of Hard Heart.

The Wind Elemental explains that it can send messages on the wind, and apologizes that you couldn't find them. He offers you a few instructions on how to find him atop of a [Corner Store]. You take the fire escape up to see your recent Wind Elemental Acquaintance speaking with the AC unit about just how beautiful it looks this evening. You begin talking to Zephyr quickly feeling like a third wheel in the conversation. Wandering over to the rooftop edge to sort of scout out the rest of your patrol you realize why it's so dreadfully dark. From your vantage point, you see every single street lamp dimmed or just completely out. And that's also when you notice the disgusting nauseating smell. To your left you notice a horrible sight. A body clutching the fuzebox of what you presume to be the whole block. It's mutated. You can see animalistic features of deers, its antlers. But you can also see the human features of a stretched out nose where its snout extends outwards. Is this the [Grimwood Corruption] at work? Before you can wonder more at the question, you hear an animalistic jeer and glass breaking on the streets below.>It seems as if you've discovered some possible vandals, or worst, raiding the [Corner Store] below you.>You may take a Free Action to decide how you wish to proceed >Do you:>Combat: Drop down to the streets below and charge at whatever horror dares threatens the community>Tactics: Call for backup, we can take on this threat much more safely with numbers.>Magic: Well you're the Mageknight, if you have an idea for a third option...>67Taking inspiration from your nightly nocturnal patrols.

He reached into his robes, pulled out an obsidian sword, and stared into the dark gem in the center of its crossguard. He sighed. "Ava... I-I still miss you..." The man sheathed his blade. Rain began to fall. The man looked up into the pouring skies. "I've cast aside my humanity, and I've done things that you wouldn't be proud of. But this is all for you, my sister... All for you." The man's face hardened. "I can feel it. They have arrived, to stop everything I have been working on." He let out a broken chuckle. "I suppose it's time to begin." The man turned away from the bright lights of the outpost and walked deeper into the woods. He stopped for a moment. "Oh, and Pappiliodya, you can begin with the attacks, now. I know you've been itching for a slaughter, and I'm sorry for holding you back. The time wasn't right quite just yet. Now, it is. Have fun." The deertaur roared into the night, and the man continued on his way.-------------------------------------------------------------------Colonel Aldana stood at the gate of the outpost, watching the group of students approach. "Well well well, what do we have here... A girl who managed to get herself infected with the Grimwood taint already, a white-haired pretty-boy with a bow, a glasses-wearing nerd with a sword and armor too big for him, and a little girl in some fucked-up looking magic armor. And you're all second years to boot!" The man snorted. "Well, I have no idea what the fuck you children are doing here, but I'm assuming you're here to help us out however you kids can or something. Certainly, none of you are soldier material, but I suppose we'll need all the help we can get. If you could at least help out as much as that Caiden kid managed to do with the wards, then you'll be useful enough."Rain began to fall, and a deertaur roared off in the distance. Colonel Aldana began to look around, alert. "Well, you kids can come on in, it's looking to be pretty dangerous out there. We don't have that much food, so if you want to eat, you're going to have to work for it.">Head inside the Outpost.>There's no time to waste.

Rolled 14 (1d100)>>1438280"Thanks Colonel. We'll take a moment to confer first." Ean said as he turned to his friends. "So what's the plan, guys? Want to head over into the outpost, or should we go straight into the woods?" He asked.Afterwards, he turned to Angelica. "I think I've got a spell that might help remove that taint. Hold still for a moment." Ean said as he channeled the energies of nature and life within himself. The mana swirled, and the Nature Mage reached over and put his hands on her shoulders.>Cast Nature's Renewal on Angelica.Relevant Modifiers: T3 Nature Theory, T3 Life Theory, T1 Nature's Renewal.
>>1438280"Thank you. Hope you don't mind. I brought in my creations with me. Don't worry. They can pull their own weight around camp." Agata hears about Caiden's contributions "Caiden? He's a member of my club. He's pretty good with wards among other things." she then looks at the spider tanks. "These guys? Their template was based on Caiden's design. He's pretty impressive." She then changes topic. "If you need help arming your men with weapons and armor, fortifying the outpost or if any of your equipment are in need of repairs and upgrades then I'm your girl." She then salutes with confidence.>>1438747"We could let them know what we're planning in there first before we go. Their help would certainly be nice or at the very least any useful advice from them. They'd probably scouted the area from time to time so they'd probably know more about the place than we do. We'll need all the help that we can get."

>>1438280Caiden for his part was resting his prosthetic arm flipping through a trashy paperback novel mostly about an extended metaphor of Life hitting ya like a Train. The team of protagonists being a bunch of Bushrangers on the Australian coast planning a bank heist. It was the morning before the heist would go down, and the Bushrangers were being as civil as they could with the hostages. The train would be coming in second. The gold bars would be transferred. The train would leave thinking they'd past the gold to bank tellers who were in reality the Bushrangers. However as the clocked speed up to the top of the hour, there was no train bell or whistle. At the top of the hour would be no train, only the sounds of gunfire as a lifetime of robbery caught up with Ted Bundy.It was the feeling, the tension of having a plan, not a tenuous plan but a well crafted plan, and just waiting to spring it into action. Whether it would be subverted by extraneous circumstances, possible but unknown, the clock hadn't reach the top of the hour. Caiden singlehandedly flipped the page feeling that tension in his stomach. It was only the sounds of action at the front gate that caused him to lift himself off his ass and plug the prosthetic back into its sockets. A masterpiece, well crafted and designed, that allowed him the functionality to do anything. It's developer, Caiden owned quite a lot to. She ought to be arriving any day to the Outpost, and maybe that was her, an Agata Stoneworth, at the front gates.For the past week or so, Caiden had settled himself to pitching in around the Motorpool of the Outpost when not fiddling with the different Wards. At the moment, the Motorpool only consisted of the one W-Tank, Curiosity, but he still considered it a Motorpool. Activity around the Outpost always seemed to flow downwards. He was sure that Colonel Aldana woke up before the dawn to hand out people's marching orders, whether it was marching or just standing on the fence watching the front lines. In anycase, Caiden for his part was less Bushranger and more Private to be ordered about checking off long list of plates and silverware in the mess. He put in the work where he could, ate his share at the mess, slept, and repeated it next day. The tension of the train building steadily each day.
>>1439894The sight of Alpha Squad, and of Agata, produced mixed emotions. Most of these students, Caiden didn't know personally but had heard the stories. These were the Heros, a mixed bag of swordsmen, conjurers, inventors, all tested in harrowing combat. Having no real combat experience, he swallowed the apprehension around these proven heros. The paperback stuffed in his vest pocket reminded him that this could be the train whistle or the gun fire at the top of the hour. "Stone," he said with a smile excited about her presence, "Great to see ya again. And great to see the personal you brought with ya and the hardware. It seems you're much more prepared than me, rushing out here on my lonesome." Turning to the rest of the group and reaching out with his right prosthetic arm, "Hello everybody, I'm Caiden Mathews. Nice to finally meet all of you."
