    10 KB Will you join me? Anonymous 01/02/09(Fri)13:50 No.3299918  
    Hello, /tg/, I am a long time fa/tg/uy. I have participated in multiple DnD games, I have seen everything from the 4e shitstorms to the banning of Jim Profit. I have watched it all, I have seen you play as wizards, I have seen you all roll dice to fight monsters.

    I am here to tell you that you have been right all along. There IS magic, and I am its sole wielder. The monsters you pretend to fight- werewolves, vampires, dragons- they are real. Just as real as the magic I wield. For the last two years I have hid this fact, testing out my magical abilities on the scum of the earth. Gangsters, rapists, murderers. They have all become toys to test my powers out. Yet now I have gone beyond fearing the light of day, of fearing becoming the test subject of ignorant men who would rather dissect me than let me save the world.

    You will, in all likelihood, call bullshit. But within a few hours, Cairo will go into quarantine. They will call it a chemical attack, or a terrorist bombing, or an invasion. In truth, it was *me*. The monsters mentioned earlier are coming, /tg/, and they do not wish to be stopped. Only I have held them off for so long, and today was the day of the largest attack yet. A large undead appeared this morning, fully intent on leveling the city and slaughtering its inhabitants. With the aid of several major government agencies I was able to destroy this creature, and it was at this point that I realized the wind is changing.

    We are not holding this planet, Outsiders- the same creatures we have all fought with clerics and wizards- are winning this secret war. I know that within a few hours, when Cairo is quarantined, this thread will be gone. But while it is here, I come to beseech you, /tg/. I come to ask you for your brightest minds, for I know that only *you* have been disillusioned with the strange and paranormal.

    The proof is all around you. The fires in California? Fire elementals that escaped onto our plane. The war of Jerusalem? Cover for the SPI's raids. Which brings me to the reason for my secrecy up until now.

    The Sector of Paranormal Investigation. They are the American government's own special forces, drawn from all branches of the military. They police the supernatural, using technology well beyond the current standard to track down and "Eliminate" anything that goes bump in the night. For a long time I feared them, capable of only minor cantrips. Yet now that I have grown in power, even they are powerless to impede my plans.

    I come not as a conqueror, but an educator. So, tell me, will *you* join the new era of magic? Or will you side with the SPI and their dogs, content with letting the world wither and die, magic remaining long forgotten?

    Do? You must listen, and understand what you face.

    I, too, was eager to learn. I was once a normal person, a chiropractor in New York. On one of my many vacations, I took a trip to Egypt. It was there that I discovered the Book of Ra, secreted within a hidden chamber of one of the temples. It has since been compromised, but there are other places. Places where magic still flows strong. It is also easy to wield, much easier than what cinema portrays.

    The sheer power of human belief is what fuels the basest magic. Belief in omnipotent gods, belief in the capabilities of other humans. Though we do not know it, the subconscious controls much of our universe. In order to shape reality, belief must be established. Self-confidence is a major asset of any caster, but not vital. I learned this in my studies of the Book of Ra, the most powerful grimoire ever composed by the last generation of wizards. It was invaluable, and I shall pass it on to those who truly wish to see humanity aided.

    Upon the stroke of midnight on the eleventh, you shall hear a rapping upon your door. It does not matter what time zone you are in, for the effect will happen regardless. When you answer the door, there shall stand before you my greatest ally- the mummy Al-Kali. Bodyguard to the Pharaoh, and personal servant. He shall take you to a place you have never been before. One filled with trials intended for those who were to take up the robe of the magi. You will receive no outside aid in those trials, and the peril will be immense. Should you survive, you will fully understand what has happened, what will happen, and what must be done.

    Commitments? You are required only to do one task for me, and do it well: Aid humanity. Make it flourish. I have already begun the machinations required to transform the harsh deserts into verdant meadows, but I still require people; men and women who will safeguard mankind from the monsters and its oppressors.

    You will be richly rewarded for your services. I myself have secured the epitome of luxury in my works. After all, the grateful *do* find pleasure in giving to those they adore.

    Board has already been set up in my location. Rest assured that all the luxuries you could ever wish for, as well as a few you never knew you wanted, will be available during your studies.

    I have bent *reality itself* in my quest to save humanity. I have flayed werewolves alive with but a snap of my fingers. Do you so believe that things like time and distance can truly impede me?

    Contact is quite simple. Al-Kali shall gather you all at the stroke of midnight at this coming full moon. Do not be afraid of him, for he beys me and me alone. He will answer what questions I permit him to, but his sole goal is to retrieve you.

    Yes, full medical and dental coverage. As well as a *very* large pension.

    Then you obviously do not wish for this.

    Ah, you understand quite well. Yet have you given into vice before? Do you have things you indulge yourself in? Do you give in to urges? Your will may indeed be powerful, as is mine, but it is not impenetrable. Thus, without proper training in focusing your belief and will, you cannot manipulate reality on such a grand scale. Yet.

    All of the above. You may bring things like firearms, for what little good they may do you. And do not worry about being found. A man once tried to assassinate me from the tenth floor of a parking garage three miles away.

    His body remained crucified on top of that building for an entire week.

    I will find you. Even if you are hidden within the deepest hole of the most magically-dead place on this planet, I will locate you. Fear not, for my power- though not limitless- is a powerful force in itself.

    Yes, they will wish to silence you. They will possibly try to arrange dangerous "Accidents" involving you and your loved ones. You may receive a mysterious visitor in the night, or a coworker will seemingly lose his mind and try to shoot you. Yet so long as you keep your confidence and remain alert, they will not directly harm you. Of that, Kali has made sure.

    Remember: To lose the power of belief is to lose life.

    You may bring any personal belongings you can carry with you. Things like Xbox 360s, PS3s, watches, computers, and so on will be provided. Bring only personal possessions like lockets, pictures, so on. Things that cannot be replaced through purchase.

    1) Return? You can never turn back from this, once you have chosen it. You will live your life in power, luxury, and constant peril. You will have the epitome of life, but in the same time have to leave everything in order to aid me and ensure humanity's prosperous survival.
    2) Death, but do not fear, for- if your will is strong enough- you may be able to return as a shade. Yet it is an...unlikely prospect, and death *will* be permanent during your trial.
    3) Both. The power of belief stretches beyond any boundaries, as does the power of the more complex magic. Yet keep in mind, whatever magic you specialize in will affect you just as much as you affect it. I myself have specialized in healing and electricity, and through experiment I have found myself superhumanly agile. When I had all of my ribs broken by a punch from an SPI Custodian in full power armor, they regenerated back to normal not a week later.

    I can forsee you going far in your studies. A honed mind, even one that has been honed against a rock, is still something sharper than most.

    You also show potential. Yet you must also ensure your will is prepared to face horrors not of this world. If your mental confidence is powerful enough, you will become a monk unlike any other, your fists capable of shredding even the most powerful alloys like wet papyrus.

    Thing is, I do not underestimate the power of technology, as you seem to do (and honestly, I find that to be very dangerous to your quest). Finding someone without any cloaking ability is laughably easy in the current world. What good is it that you try to recruit us, if half of us end up getting killed before you can tell us more?

    Yes, but have not men broken boards of will through sheer determination? Did not a man lift a helicopter off of his friend when it crashed? A driven person can shatter bone with enough willpower. It is evident in the world around us that mankind's mind conquers matter.

    Now you know that it can conquer reality as well.

    That's what is so wonderful about this exercise. If we show that we are willing to believe by watching that door on that day, then Al-Kali will come according to OP. If he doesn't come, then what's the downside? A few minutes spent out of bed or away from the computer?
    I honestly doubt anything will happen but I am willing to give this a shot. He isn't asking anything different of me. If he asked me to go out in a boat in the middle of the Atlantic beneath the moon at 03:28 GMT 11/01, then yes, I would laugh and say no. However, he's just asking us to turn an eye to the door. It's as easy that so wait and see.

    Yes, but have men not broken boards of wood through sheer willpower? Did not a man lift a helicopter off of his friend that was trapped beneath it? As history has proven, the drive of mankind can summon almost infinite reserves of strength from within us. It is mind over matter, a commonly accepted fact.

    Now it is simply a matter of mind over reality.

    As I warned you before, you will have to be alert. Yet the biggest threats to your life, particularly SPI snipers or their power-armored Custodians, will be intercepted long before they even come within miles of you.

    Yes, they can track you. Yes, they likely plan on visiting you even now, intent on putting a bullet between your eyes. Yet they will vanish, their radios will go silent, their beacons inactive. They will watch you to their hearts content, but you will be guarded by things far more powerful than railguns and plasma warheads.

    You say power comes from belief not any will. But these people of /tg/ who would supposidly be your followers lack any sort of belief. They do not follow you because they believe that you are truth but becuase they want you to be truth.
    They follow you becuase you are simply a line of text,a disembodied voice with no proof for your claims. They believe they have nothing to lose and that is why they follow you.

    That is not belief, it is simply a statement, a wager, they say yes becuase they think it will bring them profit with nothing to lose, not becuase they believe.

    True belief, true faith comes from believing in something when it's difficult, when some evidence has been provided that points you in the right dierection, but evil wants to pull you back.

    I will not follow you, I will not be your disciple becuase belief in you demands the forgetting of any other belief I have, to lose belief in reason and everything I have experienced.

    If what you say is true then I will stand by my beliefs, the utturings of a madman with a god complex will not deter me.

    My God is YAWEH and though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for my God is with.

    You will disappear from your places of residence. Questions will be raised, perhaps a manhunt given. Yet where you shall go, not even the most advanced searching technology will locate you.

    Go anywhere, go right ahead. Visit your local post office, and spew out whatever you please. Say you'd like to join the Sector of Paranormal Investigations, and see how long you last before you're committed to one of the worst mental asylums in the country. Your life will be a living hell until you finally get a single guest, a doctor. He will give you a spinal tap of the utmost agony, and your memories of all of this will be erased. You will then spend the rest of eternity in that hellish place.

    You will be taken to a place unlike any other. A place well beyond the reach of any entity, and it is there you shall learn from the greatest minds in the universe. There will be no other human contact beyond your fellow students and myself. Time will pass normally, and any length of time may pass during your stay. Yet in the end, you will become a *true* spellcaster.

    It's a deal. Upon the night that the others are collected, you will find yourself in possession of a rifle quite unlike any other, as well as a series of pleasure homunculi and a few cases of cider.

    but I will always watch you, you who hides in darkness, no darkness will be great enough to hide you from light.

    If my God truly gains his power from the belief of his followers ,then that is quite a power to contend with, we are equals. You hide behind claims of brilliance and majesty but you and I both know that if what you say is true then we are equal.

    My apologies at the delay, I did not see your post. Now then, I shall inform you of what events occurred that day.

    It had been unlike any other until the attack, the heavens darkening as the Skirr appeared. It was easily the size of a warship, its bandages as wide as a city street. The battle was long and fierce, the undead monster employing several different methods of attack from mind controlling the inhabitants to trying to absorb me in its wrappings. Eventually we slew it, however, before the entirety of the city. The SPI agents that joined during the middle of the fight did not quite know what to do now. It was a major city, and their orders hardly had anything about capturing me after I saved the city in front of millions of eyes.

    In the end it was agreed that the quarantine be put in effect as the city was repaired. I'm currently taking a break to recompose myself after summoning some earth elementals to help clear the debris. I also have several other projects waiting to be designed, including employing controlled planar breaches for infinite water, waste disposal, and electricity.

    But loyalty is something fa/tg/uys with a little time can produce in droves. Even in our games as we may have characters that strive for the destruction of good and humanity, put that fa/tg/uy in a position of power and tell him humanity depends on him, and I doubt you could find anyone who would hold their position with more respect and determination. It's a quality that we have, quality you'd be hard-pressed to find elseware.

    Bah. I wish that OP is telling the truth. That there is some gigantic conflict between those forces which we perceive to be good and evil;, that there is magic in the world, that we can at least have the power to die for something that we know in our hearts to be right.

    Because otherwise we are trapped in a world of grey, where we have no other alternative but to spend our time toiling away just so we can live another day of mediocrity.

    So do most guys here I think. Everyone is waiting for something to happen so we don't have to continue on as robots.

    But it's already been a couple hours since OP posted. This has been fun, but it's back to the grind soon enough.

    Don't get me wrong. I want to believe. But surely OP understands why we're a little...reluctant. Like I said in >>3300870

    You'd be hard pressed to find a group of more dedicated guys. But all we need is that one little inkling of truth. That one tiny spark to set off the fire in all of us.

    If it comes, he's got an army. If it doesn't? We had fun talking about this and pretending but we won't be surprised.

    Fuck you OP. Really. You come along promising everything a fa/tg/uy could ever desire - magic, power, adventure - and give not a shred of proof. If only you could open the way and show us the truth, then I would follow you into the jaws of hell.

    Until then, I'm siding with Nyarlathotep. Then I might just get eaten first.

    You are awake. Thus I cannot scry upon dreams that are not happening.

    All of them, any of them. I can tell where a fly shit without even thinking about it, but I cannot tell where a person will excel, where an army will strike next, when I will die. Yet the full capabilities you will grow into will be unique for each of you, the end of a very long and trying road. First you must master basic spells.

    And then I will be the monster that tears out my fangs and cuts off my claws.

    Ah, but I did not specify the number of hours, have I? I must admit, the SPI has been slow on their enactment of the quarantine, but it is not a matter to be done messily. It is a subtle machination, to shut all of the major highways leading in and out, to cut off all means of communication, to render a city an empty space on the map.

    I suppose I'm in. After all, life's main purpose is to grow stronger, in some way, and spread it to generations to follow.

    If what you are saying is true, then we have everything to lose by not accepting your offer. There is a secret war going on right under our noses, and if we don't rise up to help end it, who knows what amount of damage it could cause.

    I would be proud to be your student.

    Hmm... its not exactly a quarantine of Cairo, but things to do seem to be heating up between Israel and Egypt. Grasping at straws, and I suppose it was easily predictable, but still interesting.

    This... troubles me. Again, it's a matter of belief vs blind faith. Were there a trial, I would want to wage my odds first, then decide.

    Unless you are looking for cattle and slaves, not students and allies.
