    You were bored as you watched the various traders hurry through your village on the way to Unvurn. The merchants ignored your people for the most part, finding little profit among sheep-herders and potato farmers. They traveled between the mountain halls of the dwarf lords and the courts of the human kings, exchanging sunlight crops and other goods for precious gems and steel implements.

    You don't care for economics though. You don't really care for anything anymore. Not since your mother died in the winter, finally wasting away after months of wretched coughing. She deserved it, the whore, having you before she ever found a suitable husband. You were ridiculed with her, and the stigma of society made you resent her.

    Something catches your eye as you idle near the town's inn. One of the merchants, in their haste, has dropped a crate. Miraculously, neither the trader nor the townspeople have noticed the missing goods. You dash over, and drag the box to a secluded corner of the village.

    Inside, you find a simple iron sword, a ornately carved gemstone, and a beautifully embroidered robe. As you're about to reach for your spoils, a voice choes in your skull.

    "Hear me! Child of the Sun! Take the blade, and I shall guide your blows and shield your flesh! Trust in the might of the Father, and you shall have great strength." Confused, you look around, but there is no one around you.

    "You would trust your body, when your mind is so easily swayed?" a softer, more feminine voice whispers in your ear. "Take the cloth, Moon-Child, and give me your cunning guile. I shall give you dominion over your lesser kin, and hide you from the barbs and flames of those who would harm you."

    Your hand sways between the two pieces, but a third voice, cold and distant, resonates within you. "Forsake the worldly crutches for the power of the soul, Starborn, and give unto me your mind. Take the gem; I shall unlock the secrets of the universe to you, and give you power over flame and frost, light and shadow."

    You waver, confused and disturbed by the voices.


    What sex are you?
    What is your name?
    What gift do you choose?

    "Do not reject our generosity lightly, little one," this voice sounds like an amalgamation of the three, terrible and convoluted. "Forsake us now, and you shall suffer in our absence."

    "Hey, whatchoo got there, whorelass?" a voice cuts in. It's one of the village boys finds you and your spoils. "You steal that from the trada's?" You know this boy, his name is Datan, and he has always been the most vocal about your uncertain heritage. "Thieves always git punished, and the ones that bring 'em in get rewarded..." he grins evilly at you. "Hand it over, lass and we won't have any problem."

    The crate is too heavy for you to break off a piece, but you snatch the gem in your hurry to defend yourself against Datan. A quick inspection of stone reveals that it is an emerald of dwarven make, with a star engraved in its largest facet.

    "Oh, takin' the pretty gem and makin' a run for it," Datan leers. "Well, they say it's a good thing to beat the thievin' out of a thief." He dashes at you, and you are surprised by his charge.

    "I see you have chosen well, Starchild," the cold voice again speaks within you. "Look within yourself, and find the power you have always had."

    Energy begins to run through your fingers, and your eyes glow with an eldritch light. Datan's fist falters, and fear crosses his brute features as he begins to retreat. "What'choo are, whorelass? You been sleepin' with demons?" there is a strong element of terror in his voice.

    A mad, insane flash of fury burns within you, and a blast of flame erupts from your fingertips as you swipe at Datan. He falls back, screaming, as his eyes begin to boil and his flesh sizzles and pops in the heat. You're breathing heavily, your chest heaving in the thralls of the magical ecstasy.

    "Good, my child," the cold voice is silky now, proud of your accomplishment. "But you must excercise control if you wish to take your talents far in my life. Leave this village, for the kin of your foe will soon find his fate."

    You can still feel the power coursing through your veins. Datan is no longer moving, the skin of his skull scorched away to reveal white bone beneath.

    You take the other two objects, but no otherworldly voices acknowledge your acquisitions. You incinerate the box with a brief flash of fire, and dash into the forest bordering the south side of the town. You can hear shocked cries emanating from the direction of the village.

    "My name is Utin, my daughter," the voice tells you. "I am the Lord of Starlight. Move yourself deeper into this growth, until you find a grove of ancient trees. There, you shall find a cave. Enter it, and learn of your benefactor."

    You chance upon the grove, which seems to be filled with a silvery light. A small protrusion of rock hides the mouth of the cave, which is engraved with various symbols and images, some of which are rather disturbing to you.

    The mouth of the cave is lit by a faint silvery light, but you create a makeshift torch from a branch and a surge of fire. The mouth of the cave seems much more ominous with the light of the torch.

    You destroy the other artifacts, experimenting with your newfound power. You notice that the flames of the burning robe do not harm your skin, and that there is no divine retribution for your actions. It appears that you merely disposed of some common goods.

    You keep a piece of the blade anyway, as a memento.

    Inside, you find a narrow junction of eight different passageways. Above each passage, you find a different engraving: a sun, a moon, a diamond, a square, a circle, a cross, an eye, and what appears to be a gaping eye socket. For some reason, you cannot discern what lies beyond a few yards into each passage.

    You take the path of the diamond, for it seems best suited to your whims.

    After a brief walk, you find yourself in an artificial cave, its walls clearly blasted away by some unimaginable heat. The air is warm and dry, and gems in the ceiling give the illusion of starlight. The room seems to sap your power, and grow dark.

    A small column of fire erupts opposite of you, and you notice for the first time just how wrong this room seems. The walls behind you seem to stretch back further than the distance you traveled, and the dark portal behind the burning plume seems to shimmer and sway. The starlight is harsh and bright, sparking brighter than the sun at random intervals.

    "You think you have the power of Mars?" the column of flame whispers. It speaks with a sarcastic, aggressive female tone. "You think you can channel the power of our Lord Utin? See if you can control /me/!" It manifests into the form of a beautiful woman, her hair a mane of fire, her eyes gleaming red in the darkness.

    Her words incite such passion within you that the whole world seems to be covered in flame, and you see red for what seems like an eternity.

    When you regain control of yourself, the woman is standing uncomfortably close to you. You can feel her hot breath on your neck, smell traces of cinnamon and charcoal in her hair. "You've done well, little sister..." she leans into you, and gives you a long, deep kiss, her tongue burning like a fiery snake. You can feel her warmth flow into you, like the sun beating down on your skin on a summer's noon, and the shimmering portal lies open before you.

    You're a little unnerved by this, but you feel much more confident with your fire abilities now.

    After a few brief experiments with fire, you find that the fire woman is wholly a part of you, and that there does not seem to be a way to communicate with her in any fashion.

    You enter the portal, and find yourself in a vast night sky. Stars circle all around you, and you realize that you have no body, you are a ghost floating in the infinite span of space. This thought is terrifying, and you struggle in vain to have some point of reference.

    Suddenly, a bloodied eye appears before you, and somehow within and around you, and all you can see is its mangled form. Despite its grisly shape, you are somehow comforted by it, as it blocks out the plethora of stars.

    "I am Utin, the Star-Ghost." The voice no longer is within you, but rather /is/ you, shaking you to your very core. It is neither feminine nor masculine, simply an intonation of ancient chants and whispered secrets.

    "You have chosen my grace, and so I shall bestow it to you. I have given you the Spirit of Flame, the succubis of Mars, and granted you some small dominion over all the the heavenly designs. I trust that you will use it well.

    So the deal is that i set up a priesthood for you, and i get power in return? fine, i can deal with that.
    But what was with the other two? What competition will there be, and what are my limits? will the fire ever run dry, and so on.
    Also, fire ice light shadow were mentioned, is this all?

    "The Mother and the Father are not of your concern, Star-Child." Utin sounds slightly annoyed. "They are what you could call my siblings, but the word has little relevancy to one of our nature.

    "Your flame is that of the heart, and it is kindled from passion. Be careful that this passion does not overtake you. As for the other Signs, they are eight: Earth, Water, Air, Light, Darkness, Spirit, and Aether. They are subject to their own limits, but your natural choice will be your greatest power."

    The eye seems to turn itself inside out, so that the gory iris regards with with cold objectivity. "Too long has my presence been absent from your reality. I demand that you enlighten your kin to my existence, and let them know me. I do not care if I am loved or feared, only that I linger in the depths of their souls.

    "Succeed in your duties, and I shall grant you power everlasting.

    "Fail, and I shall harvest your soul, shred it to pieces, and scatter it across the Blank Infinity so that your very essence will scream for eternity, and even the gods shall wince at your agony. Do you seek any other knowledge, child?"

    "Your sire..." Utin's damaged pupil dilates for a moment, then sharpens. "You will return to the mortal realm now. Your body will be destroyed if you do not defend it from the kin of the one you purged." The eye seems to move into you, its bloodstained void enveloping you, and you are cast into the abyss.

    You awake to angry cries. You are curled naked on the floor of a small cave, small engravings and offerings scattered around you. Somehow, the battle with the fire woman and Utin's vision seem to have happened long ago. Ruby sunlight streams in through the entrance of the room, and you can smell the acrid smoke of pitch. Datan's parents must have inflamed the entire village against your crime.

    You create a splendor of flame to compliment your crown, and emerge from the cave, the moss of the grove igniting with every step of your foot.

    "I have seen the form of Utin, the Star-Ghost!" you announce to the seething crowd of nearly a hundred villagers, most of whom are too blinded by their anger to realize the threat you now pose. "I demand that bow before His glory, and allow Him to examine your souls!"

    A woman you recognize as Datan's mother, a stout, ugly old bitch, charges you. A wicked looking hand scythe is gripped in her fat fist, and a tide of peasants follow her onslaught. A few of the older ones hang back, too cautious to charge a girl wreathed in flame proclaiming an almost-forgotten deity.

    All of the names echoed in your head as you watched Datan's mother galvanize her disgusting body toward you. The anger builds inside your soul as you reach for the comforting heat of the flame. A wave of fire ignites all of the first rank of villagers save the bitch, who charges at you with reckless abandon.

    You catch her in midstep, your fingers digging into her eyes as you channel more flame into her face. Her screams of rage quickly turn to shrieks of pain and fear as she suffers the same fate as her pitiful son, the skin popping under your burning grasp.

    The other villagers contain themselves, ignoring their panicked comrades to stare dumbfounded at you and the tortured woman.

    This power, it feels good.

    You challenge the shocked villagers as Datan's mother dies beneath your palm. "Bow before the might of Utin!" you scream at them, and after a few seconds half of them drop to their knees, some visibly crying.

    The others break away and begin running. Most of the villagers you burned have stopped writhing, and the smell of burning flesh is heavy in the air.

    The sun is setting.

    You take the dead woman's scythe, and make it blaze with Utin's power. "Let the stars illuminate your worship of the Star-Ghost!" you shout, and the villagers begin to kneel. The same men and women that had ostracized you and your mother now bowed before you, submitting themselves totally to your will.

    "Good...good," Utin's voice sounds within you. "But these are not enough. Even the lowest of spirits can hold the adoration of such small hosts. Make an example of them, and exhibit it in such a way that it glorifies Me."

    You seem to be losing some of your sanity, as your thoughts are becoming muddled and confused by Utin's power.

    You call the villagers to your heel, and quickly rip out each of their left eyes. Though they squeal like pigs from the pain, they are too deep in Utin's thrall to defy you. You order them to travel to Unvurn and begin preaching of Utin's glory to the people there.

    As an afterthought, you attempt to reanimate the corpses of the burned villagers, but your power is too feeble. Your soul is weary, your heart fatigued. You need rest.

    You dismiss your newfound acolytes, and they immediately begin their journey to Unvurn. You reenter the cave, find it as small as before, and decide to create a barrier of fire to guard you while you rest.

    Blissful quiet overtakes you, and your dreams are haunted by Utin's form and burning bodies.

    Alright, that's it for tonight. I should start chapter 2 sometime tomorrow evening, unless something significant comes up.

    Archive it if you want.

    Also: a note on powers, each element is controlled by a specific state of mind. Fire seems to be the most natural element for Harvey, as she seems pretty emotion-driven. Water (Ice), on the other hand, would be the opposite.

    You might be surprised by what sort of state of mind triggers each element. I'll tell you straight off that there really isn't any sort of good/evil alignments.
