[===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==]"Servants of God"Andrew Thomas writes about the Hebdomad. These servants of god were described in the ancient Nag Hammadi texts as parasitic off-world beings who infected the minds of kings. These servants feed off human fear and create as much bloodshed, agony, and chaos as possible."The Voynich Manuscript"Taylor Davis comments on the enigmatic document. Dated back to the early 15th century, experts have failed to decipher the encoded script. So far, experts have been able to identify 12 words, mostly the names of plants and planets.[======]

>5Tonight Vlad is using a medical auditorium within the Academy clinic. He explains that tonight and for the next few weeks he will be working double duty as the on call night shift. “Protege if you really wish to learn from me you too will have to assist me.” Vlad rolls over to a number of different electrical equipment and mythical alchemical components and burners. “We will need the Ethylenediaminetetraacetic and the thaumtical iron. And please set the centrifuge on stand by” Vlad leaves the room while you hunt for the alchemical materials. He comes back wheeling in a gurney. On the bed, robes cover a silent and lovely figure “Protege Faust, this is Kiru, our Patient, and a very old friend of mine.” Kiru does not stir. “We will be doing some blood work, along with some additional tests both mundane and mythical” Spreading out the Needles Vlad walks you through the use and caution of Ethylenediaminetetraacetic. You begin the procedure of drawing blood and applying Ethylenediaminetetraacetic to the test samples.
>>1441712A loud CRACK is heard from the Front. “VLAD you Kure! When last we met you swore swore to heaven and hells to never make a move on her” Three men storms the room. One with a receding hairline and carrying many pouches and scrolls. A man in red robes, wielding a cross sword brandishes his weapon thusly. And finally what looks like a mildly mannered clerk with a three day weekend walks in with a coffee mug. The distraction is not much, but just enough to jostle the continents you are measuring causing the Ethylenediaminetetraacetic to splash onto the thaumtical needles. The Ethylenediaminetetraacetic mix catches your mask, neck. And a number of measuring gems causing some sizzling from somewhere.
“Romero, this -isn’t- the place, if the Ethylenediaminetetraacetic were to-” Vlad is cut off by the man with many pouches and trinkets “No more Excuses this ends tonight” Romero Holds up a skull lantern “Show thy true form” You and Vlad both feel a nauseating blurg as the Skull’s eyes pulsates, and you feel yourself losing focus. And then Red. It is hours later
You feel the dawn breaking outside. Vlad is struggling from on top of a pike. The pike has impaled his rip cage. His face is an ugly snarl and his throat hisses. He kicks the staff in half and he falls to the floor. On the floor there are bodies and blood. You are covered in a slick metallic tasting substance. “Ruined Everything Ruined” his usually regal suit and slacks are torn and shredded. His strut is pained but focused. “You, you, that stupid mask, and that Ethylenediaminetetraacetic.” He brings his clawed hand and grabs what’s left of your scrubs. The morning light of the sun is seeping through the upper level windows. There is a measuring gem in his other claw. It is burning and boiling his skin leaving barron bone claws. “Everything I have tried, years of research, love drained, and forsaken. And it’ll only work for You.” Using his bone claw as a scalpel, your ribcage is cracked and the measuring gem is shoved into your heart chamber. And then It beats. Vlad throws you aways from himself into the Sunlight. It does not burn. You still feel a shadow in the pit of your heart, but no pain. Looking back into the shadows You can see Vlad picking up a limb form and spiriting it deeper into the building. You feel just a bit lost and confused, but over the next few days, which you can finally enjoy. But at night you also feel the draw of the inner darkness. The seal weakens and you realize you are not completely separated from the undead curse.

>>1432189[Suzzanna Yossarin] >55 +5 -5 +4 =59With your telescope you cast your gaze to the heavenly bodies towards the Galilean moons, the satellites that orbit Jupiter. There are a variety of different energies on these moons, from Io's volcanic atmosphere to Ganymede's oceans of frozen ice. The link between Angels and the planets could trace back to an renaissance idea that these beings controlled the movement of everything in the universe. Or the ancient idea that planets themselves can portrait disaster and that divination can only come from the antagonist. Some class the House of Celestials that commanded the orbits of Planets as well as the flow of Time as Nibiru. Looking through the telescope again, you mind boggles at how anything so far away and just plain massive could be guided across the night sky. Setting up the listening radio and calling out, you hear nothing but static when you play the tape back. Repeating the call continues to produce no results, besides an eerie feeling of something wrong. A terrifying idea creeps into your head. Between yourself and the wide universe, cosmic in nature, your voice may travel into the air and never reach anything past the lights of the Madrid cityscape. But past the lights you can see below and the lights you can see above, there is an unquantifiable distance and anything could be listening. Setting aside what you may believe and the miracles you've created, the possibilities of different benevolent or malevolent intelligences intercepting your ping and responding are both incredible likely and incredibly unlikely. Above your head, a black shape flies, flapping its tenebrous wings which make no sound at all, only to land atop an adjacent building. It's massive, somewhere around three meters tall and staring at you. The only reason you can assume its stare is because of the glowing red eyes set into its head. It doesn't move, it doesn't make a sound. Whatever light source you brought with you is flicked off. And the static from your radio shrieks to life deafening you with its ear splitting crackle. In the enveloping darkness, you are blind and particularly deafen. Within a few moments, the crackle settles and something you could recognize as a [Static Voice] pipes through the mad noise, "Hello Suzzanna Yossarin.">You have called out to the universe, and something from the universe has answered. You may respond with RP freely.>Gain Basic Cosmic Theology, the field of theology that seeks to understand the heavenly bodies and their movements.

Located at the base of your spine, this is the Chakra closest to the earth. It keeps you grounded and focused on physical survival. Whenever the adrenal starts pumping, spiritual energy is channeled through this Chakra to keep your legs running, either towards or away from danger. Blocking this Chakra may cause paranoia, fear, procrastination, and helplessness. >+1 Chakra Theory>86 - 5 = 81 You volunteer to work at the Cafeteria and use your Heat Thief as a thawer/defroster for the frozen meats.

>>1442204Suzy stumbles a bit onto the flush grass of the clearing. In a low hushed voice she utters "oh wings." Her eyes dilate untill they're saucers, trying to adjust to the darkness and to the amazement of this darken spirit? Star? Black Hole? A localized blackhole? Suzy decides that is as close to an actual explanation as anything else. Physically it's Gravitation could be distorting electrical signals. While stealing the light from it's immediate area.Calling half into the radio half to the darkness "Yes that be me Suz. What be yourself?" Suzy is not yet ready to give the black hole in space her full name. She has heard stories. The story goes that if you give an evil spirit your full name from your own lips, it acts as conduit of power for them to control and influence the summoner. The armature astronomer quickly scrambles to change the arrangement of the astronomy telescope into an Invoker's call stand. She takes an [Occult board] from her pack and places it between her and the blackhole. "I warn you I am not without Arcane might. I would not be an easy meal should you choose" Fluttering her YoYo before places that onto the Occult board. All of this a show courage rather than with any real strength to back up such a claim. Finally with one last motion she flicks a vial from her pocket, inside a small Fluoride sample clinks off the glass. "Be you Lailah Protector this fluorospar shall be quicken and an ultraviolet light shall spill forth"
>>1428232>>1429013The girl reholsters her weapon while listening to Arthur's questions. Jozin can tell she received his telepathic message, as she gave him pretty scary look, before refocusing on the blond knight."Y'all haven't heard about the cultists ? Freaky hooded guys, mumbling unintelligible stuff. They've been quite active 'round these aprts, stealing livestock. I guess the government's trying to keep things down. Villagers hired me to scare the varmints off. Usually, I fire a couple warning shots, an' that's enough to make 'em scatter. Haven't seen any in a few days, so hopefully they know better than to mess with the folks here."She seems trustworthy enough, and none of you find any reason to doubt her. She then escorts to the village, whistling while you walk. The villagers welcome you, and the bus driver is carried to the doctor's office. One of the inhabitants recognizes Arthur as the Belrose's son. He mentions that he hasn't heard from his parents in a while, but then again, it isn't that uncommon for them to stay off the grid for extended periods of time, as they're quite self sufficient.>You're now at the [Small Village] Here, you can rest, gather information, and stock up on supplies.>Reaching the Belrose farm will take less than one day of walking, but the villagers warn you that the area seem to be crawling with cultists>The villagers will attempt to recover the bus while you are away.>Madison is still in town, and will leave for a patrol next turn.
>"Devin Hines. A pleasure to meet you too." Clasping the newcomers extended arm. "Sounds like you've already been at work around here. How is it out here?"Caiden will return Devin's gesture, Devin may notice an artificial quality to the arm but there is a sincere civility in Caiden's speech and mannerisms, " Thank ya kindly." Taking a more relaxed position he responses, "Around here in the Outpost, it's pretty bare bones survival but livable. This place has cycles of lots of activity whenever we receive patrols or resupplies, and then just long periods of boredom. The food is… well it's nothing to write home about, Friday's are rubber steak night. They try to make the ground beef into something you'd find in a restaurant. But the taste and texture dissuade you from that idea real fast. Myself personally, I've driven around the local area in the Walker. Some parts of the area, like Black Hill Woods will change on you based on old powerful obfuscation magics, which gave me some ideas to improve the Wards.""As for 'action,' I haven't seen anything. But I've definitely heard stuff. Late at night, you hear them in the darkness. It's like something between the howl of wolves, and the scream of wild-men. Now you think to yourself that you're safe in these Outpost partitions. And yet those wails never let you totally forget you're in the middle of a corrupted forest."

"You lovebirds done staring into each other's eyes and shit? You kids should decide quickly. Heal her up inside the outpost, if you want.

The figure before you still stares with large red dish lights atop its head. The radio responses to your inquires with a harsh metallic electronic voice. "That being is not here. You called, I answered. I am Indrid Cold. Others have taken my words as truth, because they are. I speak truth. I have spoken with Jerry Phelous, the man and the monster.

>>1444542[Angelica Shanyrria]>Rolled 93+1+2+1+5=102As you place your hand upon the blackened and oozing tree, and you speak the language of the Fey, you feel an immense power welling up inside of you. It surges down your arm, and into the tree, and an intense light begins to shine in the wood, blinding you and everyone else for a few moments.When the light fades away, the tree and the grass around it are all vibrantly green, practically glowing with life, in stark contrast to the gloomy darkness of the woods and the pouring rain from the dark skies above. It's like a vibrant piece of what had once been, the last piece of shining hope in the Grimwoods. You feel your Grimwood taint fade away.Colonel Aldana whistles. "Now, that. That's impressive. You guys certainly aren't your normal bunch of kids." He draws his sword. "The only thing is, you probably just aggravated every shitty deertaur in the area. You kids should probably get inside. I'll protect you all, with my life, if I must."You aren't done quite yet, though. You sprinkle the ashes of the flower upon the trunk of the tree you just purified. Again, a bright light covers the area, and when you can see again, the tree has twisted itself into some sort of gate.Fey soldiers begin to march out of the gate. These seem taller than the average fey, around five feet tall, if you had to eyeball it. The last soldier to step out of the gate bows with a flourish before you. The gate closes behind him, and the tree reverts to its prior state. He seems more decorated than the other soldiers, with slightly fancier armor. "You have called upon the Court of Spring, and we have answered. Ambassador Maelthas sends his regards." The soldier stands up straight. "I am Captain Ailean, and my soldiers and I are here to serve you, my lady. My only regret is that we were not able to rally up more soldiers for the fight- my kin are in the midst of a war with the Council of Winter. However, the twenty men that are here are some of the highest trained in the land, that I can assure you. What are your orders?"You can hear Colonel Aldana swearing in shock behind you.[Caiden Matthews]Colonel Aldana turns to you, in shock. "Kid, if these are your friends, then I'm certainly glad you came here."[Devin Hines]Colonel Aldana nods. "Nice to see you're determined, kid. We need that fire around here."Aldana faces all of you. "Alright, I can certainly see that you're not all just an ordinary bunch of kids. Whatever you decide, though, you'd better decide soon. I'm not sure how strong those fairy soldiers are, but a deertaur attack will probably be here pretty damn soon, especially with all that fancy light shit you did, so you kids better either skedaddle out of here and go on your suicide mission into the woods, or get inside the outpost so that we can defend against the deertaur.">The deertaur will reach the outpost the next live-action turn.

Could you call the distance between her and the black hole space? Are those really two red dwarfs about to pop? Those wings nothing more than solar flares. "Will," Suzy corrects herself in a small effort to gain back her courage. The amature Invoker clearly did not expect to get this far "shall you speak truth to me? Can you tell me the truth of Jerry?"

>>1446811The presence of the tenebrous figure continues to draw in every shred of light from the scene, ferrying it away into a vacuum never to grace this earthly plane again. The warmth of the season always seems to disappear, radiating away into the void. The incomprehensible blackness wraps around you like a constricting snake forcing the very air from your lungs, as even now it becomes harder and harder to simply breath. The silence is deafening, everything is cold, dark, and silent, expect the static of the radio seemingly to settle into the cosmic background as your soul continues to float there in nothingness and oblivion. "You were there," the radio whispers between cracks and hisses, "He became monster to escape the pain of being a man, to escape the nocturnal tortures of another. He was set on that path before your involvement, and just after his first sin." The bright red dishes of light seem to grow dominating the entirety of the scene stretching towards each horizon. "You will uncover many truths from those that cover them up. The society of sacred lines will find you. And you them. You will see the face of your father, again." With that another burst of static erupts from the radio causing you to cover your ears and turn away. When the static stops, the light returns. You find yourself alone in the clearing. >After falling upwards into space, you find yourself back on solid ground.
[===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, the forecast for this week includes sunny skies and moderate temperatures as we slide into Spring and further into Summer. But you would not think it on the Eastern Front, we turn now live to our Eastern European Correspondent, "Thank you, for the past four years we have seen a strengthening of the Russian Imperial Legion, like we haven't seen in recent history. They have already gained the fealty of several eastern satellite kingdoms and are poised to encroach on traditionally Western Kingdoms such as the Germanic Municipalities, Italian and even Greek City States. At this time we will not presume to know if the Emperor also has his sights on traditionally Spaniard, French, or Nordic territories. Many credit the successful conquests on the Imperial Legion's fine control of Ice Storms. And back to you in that very warm studio."Feeling lethargic? Like you just don't have the motivation and energy to get through the day? Many students around the academy are expressing general symptoms that healing and alchemical experts are still working to figure out. However one apothecary, called R And S, is advertising a cure-all for what it claims are impurities within the air. "Reptiles and Scales! We've got the cure of what ails you. Purify yourself with our powerful cleansing medicine. Become more Powerful and Stronger with our Natural Alchemical Potions. Come on down while supplies last. We're here at many convenient locations!"
>>1449856And now returning to news stands after a very long time:[==Madrid Enquirer==]"Servants of God"Andrew Thomas writes about the Hebdomad. These servants of god were described in the ancient Nag Hammadi texts as parasitic off-world beings who infected the minds of kings. These servants feed off human fear and create as much bloodshed, agony, and chaos as possible."The Voynich Manuscript"Taylor Davis comments on the enigmatic document. Dated back to the early 15th century, experts have failed to decipher the encoded script.

In truth it shares plenty with the other schools of magic, evocations and conjurations, but the problem is one of assocation and application. Some of the results may be the same but the methodology is completely different. A few of the examples listed of Invocation practices; Supplication, prayer or spell. A form of possession. Self-identification with certain spirits. Command.Roughly the Class explains it thuslyInvocation is to call inwards. Evocation is to call outwards. Throwing your energy into the worldConjuration is the specific practice of summoning energy or beings to yourself All religions in general use invoking prayers, liturgies, or hymns; see for example the mantras in Hinduism and Buddhism, the Egyptian Coming Out by Day (aka Book of the Dead), the Orphic Hymns and the many texts, still preserved, written in cuneiform characters on clay tablets, addressed to Shamash, Ishtar, and other deities.

[=== Interacademy News ===]Due to a demonic incursion, the Mageknight Academy of Amsterdam has chosen to relocate their students to the Mageknight Academy of Madrid. The MkAM will be hosting the refugee students from the MkAA. A new spatial dormitory has been erected on one of the empty plots of land around the campus. They will take classes and do their best to adapt to their new environment. Students are asked to be on their best behavior towards them, as to make sure everything goes seamlessly.[===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, the forecast for this week includes sunny skies and moderate temperatures as we slide into Spring and further into Summer. But you would not think it on the Eastern Front, we turn now live to our Eastern European Correspondent, "Thank you, for the past four years we have seen a strengthening of the Russian Imperial Legion, like we haven't seen in recent history. They have already gained the fealty of several eastern satellite kingdoms and are poised to encroach on traditionally Western Kingdoms such as the Germanic Municipalities, Italian and even Greek City States. At this time we will not presume to know if the Emperor also has his sights on traditionally Spaniard, French, or Nordic territories. Many credit the successful conquests on the Imperial Legion's fine control of Ice Storms. And back to you in that very warm studio."

Getting closer to this tree, you start to feel how enormous it really is.Walking closer and closer, the land feels grassier and stones start to form that lead the way. Once you’re close enough. you look up to the tree and see the beautiful multi-colored leaves and the branches bearing fruits of all types and finally, after passing a few trees, you see a building engulfed by the roots of this tree wit a sign above ‘Gardening and Cooking Club’ written in nice handwritten cursive letters.

You talk to it and give it basic instructions to do. Sometimes the little thing doesn't listen and finds some random place to cough up some acid but as you talk to it more, it starts to understand and follow more often. The first test, you tell it to run from point A to point B in the open grounds and sadly, As he starts running, you don’t even look at the timer and can tell that he isn’t the fastest with his short and stubby legs. The next thing you do is test his acid spit. You tell to hit certain things like a trash can and give him some distance to do it too. For awhile it has a difficult time understanding, but you show him yourself with your fire spit and he follows. You continue to do it and find that his acid as strong as it looks can’t break metal.. You continue on with the next exercise which is to test its flight capabilities. You start off and start conjure your dragon wings and flap up. The dragon copies you and really, it can’t flap enough to bring his body up. You try a different approach and bring the dragon up to the skies. As you fly carrying him, he reacts excitedly and soon copies you in posture as you glide through the skies above. Soon, you let go slightly and he’s doing it! He is soaring through the sky!. With a few more minutes, you realize he was gliding more and couldn't bring his body higher but you think it would be a great experience for him to feel the wind anyway.

>>1467415>>1455471[Yossarin Suzanna]>61Coming around during office hours, you spy the Professor rummaging around his desk for a coffee mug. He sets you down with a steaming mug and begins explaining his own exploration into solar energies. It seems that ambient sunlight is a popular idea as a source of energy, going back to the ancient civilizations of the fertile crescent. He takes a second to withdraw a two meter high staff with a crystallized stone at its cap. He demonstrates that if he placed the staff in a certain position as a precise time of day, then his lockbox would open. During the demonstration, the lockbox actually falls off the shelve and goes clattering to the floor. You eagerly help the Professor collect the scattered notes and photographs. You notice a much younger Adalbert Waffling standing next to a young woman and what seems to be the Principal of the Academy. On the back of the photograph you read, "May the society last, 1989." Besides the photo you also spy an incredible diagram and design. It seems to be a amplifying and magnifying Mana collection and firing design centered around ambient mana sources. This must be the basis of the crystal staff the Professor just shared. There also seem to be variants of the diagram from the staff, to a wand, and even a firearm, along these designs don't seem to be as flushed out. The Professor explains that he'd move onto different projects and the spark to continue just wasn't there. In answer to some of your specific questions, he explains that the potential for energy transmutation is endless, from the sound of a gunshot to an emotional outburst of anger. But to simplify it into a single theory he outlines it as such: Physical Forces, such as Kinetic, Light, Sound, Heat, Electricity, and Fire can be Transformed between each other with a minimal efficiency loss by first capturing the energy into a collector. After collecting these energies, you may instantly convert them between each other, or convert them into a Potential Energy Mana substance. Somewhat like an Mana Battery you can tap when you need that extra power.
>>1467422There are more complex and power Physical Forces such as gravity, radiation, and even the weather(taken as a huge system rather than its individual components), but manipulating those forces takes more time and expertise, constituting a more dedicated study. Winding down this session, the Professor hands you a plug with a glass lens fastened to it's end and etched with a simple circles. The design looks almost like a sun or an eye. He also passes you his diagrams of Solar Mana collection, encouraging you to create something better than his old crystal staff. >Gained [Acquaintance Adalbert Waffling]>Gained [Sol Lens], a lens designed to collect ambient sunlight and convert it into mana.>Gained [Small Mana Battery], a battery that holds less than a standard mana battery.>Gained [Professor Adalbert Waffling's Notes], these notes detail the parts necessary to collect Solar Mana, store the Mana in the [Mana Battery], as well as a [Frame] to direct the magical energy in whatever effect you desire. The [Frame] seems to be a key part because unless the released energy is directed it'll simply revert into it's natural state once released from the Battery.>>1456532[Nicholas Penn]>73 +5 =78>Study AlchemyMan is inherently greedy and will continue to make the same mistakes until his race breathes no more. Alchemy can be broken up into two broad philosophies. The physical alchemy of changing the compositions of different substances and even the wholesale transmutation of metals. In this school of thought, transmutation of one metal to another can be effected by the rearrangement of its basic qualities. This change is mediated by a universal solvent. The philosopher's stone then is that universal solvent that allows these changes to take place. On the other hand, spiritual alchemy is much more concerned with the alchemist's enlightenment and a divine understanding of the universe that facilitates his transmutation process with methods and theories unknown yet still valid. Another term for the philosopher's stone, perhaps more apt in the spiritual context, is Azoth. This term was considered the representation of the supreme wholeness between the beginning and the end. This "fluid" would connect the maker with divine understanding. There's also the theory that Azoth itself is the Divine Fire stolen by Prometheus. This substance is an animating force within the universe, an unrefined soul with great unattained potential. Golemancers are experts at manipulating the substance and using it to animate their creations. >Gain Basic Alchemy (T1)[1/2]>Gain the book [Azoth: The Divine Fire], a book detailing various alchemical theories in the physical and spiritual context.

So I will be substituting Don't worry the rivets are the same.“ On the table at the front of the lecture hall is an Imp and a toilet. The man is dressed in overalls and a red cap with the signal of the academy on it. Attached to the cap is a lone pin on them with the letters MMM edged into them “I am Carlo Sanchez, plumbing professor and janitorial staff of the school” “This here imp we’re going to transmogrifying into meat. Specifically prime cut beef. Now I’m just going to take this here Axe of splitting and chop this bad boy right up into choice cuts” The vaguely Italian man than Slams the Axe onto the imp and in a puff of smoke the imp is gone and in it’s place is a whole lot of blood and some wrapped meat. “Transmutation is practice and study of taking what’s already here and forcing them to break down and realign into the desired shapes. It is the practice of break down and rebuilding.”With a wicked grin he also adds “Which is why Necromancy is nothing more than emo Transfiguration.” Before moving on to the Toilet “For this class we’ll be using this as a cauldron of cleansing.

These 'chakras' are actually whirling, vortex-like points of energy in which mana circulates within our bodies. The book explains how you can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries aligned vertically along the spine. Flipping through the pages you settle on a passage describing the "Crown Chakra."The Crown Chakra is the seventh chakra and it is located atop the skull and at the top of the spinal arrangement of Chakras. Energy within the system flows bidirectionally, but this is the point where the divine source of creation and the personal earthly sources intersect. By allowing access through this Chakra a person may experience the gift of unity and the understanding that everything is connected at a very fundamental level. This level is sometimes called the "Aksha" or "Zero Point Field." Thinking it over you see some similarities between the Crown Chakra and Azoth. >Gain +1 Chakra Theory>Gain +2 Mana Theory

Unfortunately your are not scientific researchers as much as you would like to play one on TV. I mean seriously those CSI guys are the only thing that make microscopes sexy. You make due with some lab equipment and creating an outline of different tests you wish to perform. You soon discover that the Sap collected from the tree and Blood collected from the monsters have already decayed into identical substances. The specific organic material that would separate these two samples are gone. From these observations you can conclude that this black ichor infected both subjects and corrupted them in a similar process. The plant drawing up through its roots, and the former animal eating those plants. Simple, right?The actual composition of this ichor is much like the consistency of maple syrup left at the bottom of a dish. Throwing a cracker into the dish, you watch as the ichor spreads itself evenly over the crack and seems to break it down. Watching the cracker break apart you can almost see it being dissolved as well. It does seem to be solvable within water, surprisingly enough. To your eyes it all but disappears until you notice a small thin layer of gunk stuck to the bottom of the dish. Moving onto the next test, you place a flower in the dish. The stem of the flower turns a coarse brown and the bright yellow petals grow and curl themselves, becoming a flytrap before your eyes. Exposure to mana at any of these stages seems to accelerate the procross of corruption. One of your final test is to cut the flower away from its stem and let it decay in a separate dish. Before long the second dish is full of a substance identical to the black ichor you started these experiments with. Moving onto how the [Grimwood Monster Sap Samples] reacts to various energies. The three subjects you now have are: the [Pure Sample], the sample has you brought it into the lab; the [Dissolved Sample], the ichor within a dish of water; and the [Corrupted Sample], a small collection of flowers you've exposed the sample to. You find that subjected the [Corrupted Sample] to environments ideal for the flower causes the flower to grow much larger and into a much more gruesome state. With the [Dissolved Sample], freezing temperatures causes the sap to fall into the bottom of the dish effectively trapping in under the ice, supposedly to be thawed as soon as the temperature picked up. When exposed to higher boiling temperatures, the water evaporates into the air however the sticky sap stays within dish. Thank whatever divine power you prescribe, this thing isn't airborne.
>>1467452The hours creep further into the early hours of the morning, whatever is pushing you through these tests, you're starting to peter out. One of you carelessly hangs their ear buds on the dish where you keep the samples. After returning with a refresher cup of coffee you notice that the flower has regained its natural color. You quickly realize that your ear buds is having a positive effect on the flower and a negative effect on the corruption. You very quickly cross out the small magnets or electrical power as the cause by running a powered magnet over the dish. No, it was the sound, NO, the music spilling out of the earbuds that caused this. You run a quick test by bringing out a speaker. A gentle melody pours out, a piano that sways with each beat and note. The effect is nearly instant as each one of the samples seems to fizzle into nothingness. With a celebratory cheer you give each other highfives. With all the derivatives samples destroyed you decide to crank up the volume and blast the original sample with some Hard Rock and Roll. Which prompts it to explode violently destroying the radio with a loud BANG. Note for further tests, reacts violently to Hip-hop.[Nicholas Penn, Yossarian Suzanna, Joachim Johnson]>Gain Basic Laboratory Proficiency >You've created a [Magical Scientific Study of the Grimwood Taint]>This study details the composition and how to identify similar samples. It also details the various tests you've ran on the substance and your final conclusions. >The Grimwood Taint seems to seek out energy and food sources to produce more of itself. The taint also seems to infect living tissue as a means to leech off their vitality and to twist them into more predatory forms to continue hunting food. >The substance is resistant to extreme temperatures and is unphased by exposure to electromagnetic waves, light or otherwise. It however is extremely reactive to sound waves and melodies. The gentle piano being enough to diminish a sample to nothing. [========]

The tree probably held a Dryad of extraordinary power, or some other for m of nature spirit. And the lake would probably have nymphs in it as well.

[===Madrid 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].Scandal rocks the sporting community. Flash Masters, a football star has been discovered to have used performance enhancing magics during his training and just before hitting the field. These enhancements included physically altering muscle mass, rewiring reaction triggers in the mind, predictive divinations of other players actions, as well as a whole host of different spells. Our sport analysis today says it's not uncommon during training for athletes to recover from injuries or seek blessings for game via various pre-game rituals. Huddling together, praying to various gods, slapping each other's backs for good luck, etc. However the extent that Flash Master and his team relied on these magical processes has put an asterisk by his name in sports history.
>>1477731We find ourselves this evening giving some grave news. Gerald Brigands has passed away earlier this morning after surviving sixteen months of terminal lung cancer. A well know monster and witch hunter within his home province of Bavaria. When various monstrous creatures attempted to escape facing their crimes within neighboring states, Geralt was quick to step in route out their menace. A hero and controversial figure, he was loved by the surrounding populations. But would sometimes act contrary to the legal authorities, offering sanctuary to some creatures others thought too dangerous. He is best known for this single handedly routing out a conspiracy against the crown of Bavaria. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones and family at this time. And now returning to news stands after a very long time:[==Madrid Enquirer==]"Whale Whisperer" Patricia Rhodes reports on how our oceans are under attack by "sonar blasts" from the Royal Navy which are adversely affecting whales, dolphins, and other marine life."Blood Moon Rising"Mark Trevil, decodes the hidden heavenly messages from 'Blood Moons.'

[Find info on Martha]You do some critical thinking and start to think of when Devin could have been spied upon without too much suspension. You settle on classes Devin would have taken. You walk your sexy sleuthing ass up to administration. Settling on Ice Theory you ask around the Elemental department about Devin. You find male student studying grass blades who does remember Devin and about a girl “Martha? Oh Mary you means Devin’s Girlfriend? The girl that always sat behind him in class and give him kissy eyes.” Being cool and casual you push him for information. The blonde the ginger or the brunette “Nah the shorty blonde if I recall. I only know because I asked her out and she said her ‘eggs’ were only for Devin’s purity. Some chicks dig the white hair I guess. Why what you looking for?”
>>1477736You thank the student and reply you are looking to return an old book “Oh funny that she dropped her spell book after last period. Must have been months ago, but I haven’t seen her in the elementals lately. Can you return it for me? It’s full of Devin poems. I think she lives off campus, but hell if I know. Man when the chick finds out she’s only one of four I do not envy that conversation. Know what I mean” wink wink.Looking through the text you do find more loose leaf paper. The loose leaf paper contains Devin poetry and a few drawings of Devin. Not to mention a few more lewd drawings. Along with a rough thesis of divine right and sex practices.

Shoes on a outside porch with a raven pecking at the sole and laces. You’re not sure why but this sight gives you a feeling of foreboding. For the first time since your curse, you find the lab initially barred from your egress. With a little bit of elbow grease you shove the doorway open. For the first time you feel the cold draft and wet stone under your heel. Strange you never noticed it all before. Shallow and Hollow echoing greets you. You finally make it back to the slab you last laid the female vamp on. But to your eye, instead of a torso, you see a dress of beauty and grace draped upon a noble female soul. This soul Marred by but a single silk handkerchief about her left eye speaks. “You should not come here while the master is away.

>>1477850>>1467698[Emilia / Dietrich Neunhause]>Class>Attend: Rune crafting classToday, the teacher leads you out of the classroom, and hands you a hammer and chisel. He explains that you are going to work on a project only a few students in runecrafting ever completed : Your very own runestone. Back in the day, runestones were made to commemorate important events or celebrate heroes. Here, they’re a project for master runecrafters. Once you complete your first runestone, you’ll be a master. You spend the afternoon looking for a suitable stone, and start working on the design of your stone. >+1 Runecrafting>19>Do: I still have that word rock turtle thing lapis gave me. I might as well check on it and see how it's doing.You find your baby adamantoise munching on the wall. Looks like it made a pretty impressive hole in it. When you try to get near it, it glares at you menacingly, and snaps its beak. It seems like neglecting it for so long left it quite bitter. At least it seems relatively healthy, even though the gems on its back look less shiny than when you first got it.>>1467851[Abby Dragfirm]>55>Hang out with Valerie in Frederico's Bar. I wanna know what she thinks about the baby dragon living in our dorm now.You finally get the time and invite Valerie to Frederico’s Bar. “You really like his drinks now eh?” She remarks. Not surprising since this has become your usual hangout. Both of you start the night with some weak drinks and plan for it to get stronger as the night goes on. At the first few drinks, she talks about her band and all the small time concerts they have been doing across town recently. “I’ve been busy and well you know how it is, rockin every night and sometimes partying. You should definitely come sometime.” She then brings out her guitar and shows you some gnarly licks and riffs on the it. As she finishes, people in the other tables clap and cheer. Somehow this leads you to stage. You can’t quite remember how it happened, All you know is that the peer pressure and the alcohol got to you. You end up singing some songs, not even sure about how good you were. You get handed out more drinks for the songs and the night gets blurrier and blurrier from there on out.
>>1477853The morning after, you find yourself in your dorm room with a light headache and some body pains. Somehow, you and Val made it back. You look over to her and she’s on her bed looking more lumpy than usual. You don’t take notice of this instantly as you go get a glass of water and as you are just about to lay back on your bed and you realize ‘Valerie isn’t that big’. Well you jump up at this realization and come to check her and as you lift the blanket off of her slowly, you see the Vussora in her arms. Slightly hungover, you get up and find some breakfast somehow. You cook something up and when she wakes up, you hear her call to you in a whispery voice. “Abby! Abby! Help! What is this?” She asks pointing to the tiny dragon biting Valerie’s shirt. With that sight you could even see a somewhat erotic scene with a small sight of her cleavage and some skin. You head to Vussora and pet him gently and he lets go and continues to sleep in the bed. As soon as Valerie is released, she jumps out of bed and you explain the situation as you both eat breakfast. “That explains the new floorboards. I’m fine with it as long as it does not eat my clothes again or burn through my stuff but are we even allowed to have pets in the dorm?” >+1 relation with Valerie>40Once you head to the roof of the dorm, you see two students observing, one kneeling down and talking as the other takes notes. You notice that the boulder you wanted is already close to the plant, which seems thicker and somewhat larger since you last saw it. The tips of the roots are also starting to grab the boulder a few feet away. As you walk closer, the two students take notice of you and stands up after kneeling and greets you. “You must be Abigail Dragfirm. I am Hunson. I work with the Gardening and Cooking Club. I mostly do cooking but I know my way around some plants. Anyway… Your plant grows pretty fast and I’m not sure about it but if my observations are correct, this plant might let some fruit out.” He then continues to explain the process of it. “Oh and also I’m not sure on it but it seems very sensitive and its growth speeds up whenever you are in the building. I haven't validated this fact yet but I honestly think it holds some connection with you.”>Met Hunson of the Cooking and Gardening Club>You learned that the Plant reacts more whenever you are close by>The [Moonlight Plant], After a few turns will bear some fruit.

Your approach is rather uneventful until you are within their domain. Then you hear a rumbling and the world you stand on begins to violent shake. From side to side the sky turns into the ground and ground turns into the ceiling. Large stone blocks come whizzing past from behind you, narrowing missing your transport. As you right yourself you see the stones are now far off into the distance. You see a man with a broken cleft as he gets closer you realize he is a living rock person. “Ello how is you? Earthquake?

Many aspects of Transmutation are simply a step up from Alchemy which deals with mixtures and solutions. The first few principals of changing matter is first the understanding of the inherent structure and properties of the alpha material, as well as the final destination material, this is called Comprehension. The next principle is Deconstruction. Magical energy in the form of mana must be directed into the alpha material until it is completely broken down. And finally the flow of energy must be directed to reform the material into the new shape desired, this is call Reconstruction. The entire process is fraught with error prone processes if the magician flatters in a single step. Because of this, many mages design an elaborate set of sigils and runes in order to present the necessary components to reality without overly taxing their own minds. Traditionally these sigils and runes are arranged in a circle around the material to be transmuted. Besides the complexity that these Transmutation Circles can take to design and inscribe, the fundamentals laws of the universe, Equivalent Exchange and Conservation of Mass, have a massive impact on the process.>Gain +2 Transmutation

But can’t seem to get too much of the Eastern metaphysics or graphics right away. Putting it away you grab [Azoth: The Divine Fire] and get a much better insight in the material. You read about Alkahest the hypothetical universal solvent, having the power to dissolve every other substance, including gold.A potential problem involving alkahest is that, if it dissolves everything, then it cannot be placed into a container because it would dissolve the container. However, the alchemist Philalethes specifies that alkahest dissolves only composed material into their constituent, elemental parts; hence, a hypothetical container made of a pure element (say, soil) would not be dissolved by alkahest. The old remark "spit is the universal solvent" satirizes the idea, suggesting that instead of a solvent that would easily dissolve anything, the only "real" solvent to anything is a great deal of hard work. In modern times, water is sometimes called the universal solvent as well, because it can dissolve a large variety of substances, due to its chemical polarity and amphoterism.>Gain +1 Mana theory>Gain +1 Alchemy >Gain [Allnighter] Turn 126.

One hooded figure is quick to point out that by your own emission you have wandered into the Forbidden Forest off campus putting yourself in danger and in violation of the Academy's stated rules. This voice is waved off by another hooded figure, which you can see is Stephan Rice. Stephan Rice you have seen before during your first few days on campus, he was the dark haired cutie, totally a cutie, not a beefcake but you could eat him up in anycase. He ends the performance piece of these vaulted proceedings by asking for the lights and lifting his hood from his head.

You know that Stephan Rice is also the Secretary of the Council with his eyes on the President position in the upcoming election.
