    Golden sunlight streams in through the pillars of the temple, washing away His silver starlight with vengeful yellow. The city rises fitfully, grimly, moaning as it pulls itself to its feet, spitting the vomit from its mouth before shambling to its duties. Whores quietly weep in their stained beds, drunks sleep in gutters, and guards swarm to your conquest.

    This place, Unvurn, is so alien to you. You are accustomed to the graceful humility with which farmers and shepherds awaken, slipping silently from their meager beds to move in the gloom of predawn's mist to begin their simple tasks. Those same villagers now glumly serve you, so that you may bring them closer to the Star-Ghost and thus further from His wrath, yet they still retain a glimmer of that grace. Just a glimmer.

    You feel Utin's Eye upon you as the city guard surrounds the temple, their spears glinting in the rays, their eyes hard. A pompous man glares at you from the back of his horse, an iron sword clamped in one gnarled hand, a scroll in the other. "By order of Lord Iton Unvurn," he shouts, "I demand that you lay down your arms and submit to his fair and righteous justice!"


    Your name is Harvey. You are a woman of approximately 18 years of age.
    You are a prophet of the Elder God Utin.
    You have significant control over the element of Fire, and a blossoming control over the element of Earth.

    You look around for diamonds to hurl at the guards, but find none. Apparently, the god you liberated the temple from did not believe in such earthly symbols.

    Your followers peer expectantly at you. There are seventeen in all, a calculating couple you converted when you first entered the city, five young men eager for power, and ten villagers you forced into Utin's service when you first manifested His glory. Four of the young men are wounded, possibly blinded from your fight with the high priest of this temple last night.

    You create a halo of Utin's flame and wrap yourself in His fiery garb. "Do not worry, we shall deal with this intrusion," you assure the man who slew the noble elf.

    "Tell me first what I have done!" you shout back, wrapped in glorious flame. Your appearance unnerves the guards, and many folk flock to see the commotion. A low roar of voices surrounds the temple.

    "You are accused, nay, convicted of slaying worshippers of Aenor, the Dawn's Light, of defiling His radiant house, of the senseless murder of His beloved child!" the man is undaunted by you, and urges his men forward. They reluctantly respond, and slowly begin to edge their way upward. They are many, and you are unsure of your ability to fight so many.

    You create a barrier of rock before them, and they shout in alarm. You hear the curses of their captain, the sudden roar of the crowd, and a fainter, more desperate sound. You shout of the glory of Utin, and scream his name, lost in your own drunken power.

    Something strikes the back of your skull, and you tumble down from the temple's precipice to slam into your own barrier. Your vision blackens, fades, and you are lost in oblivion.

    You wake up in a small, windowless cell. You are naked. There is a heavy iron door at one of the cell. There is a pitcher of water near the door, as well as a loaf of dark bread. You are laying on a thin mound of sour-smelling straw. You are thirsty, and your head feels thick and sore.

    You take a small sip of the water, and find that it tastes slightly bitter but otherwise fine. A nibble on the bread reveals that it is rough and gritty, but having lived as a peasant you are used to such things.

    You have absolutely no sense of Utin in this place, nor his power. This is unusual to you. As you strain your ears, you can hear the faint sound of water somewhere, as well as muffled voices.

    You attempt to garb yourself in flame, but cannot. In your effort, you see what appears to be a long, thin, grey tattoo along your arm.

    You wait, but you know not for how long, until footsteps can be heard behind your iron door. The rattle of a key, and three people step into your door.

    The first visitor is a tall, powerful man, with a short, black beard and piercing blue eyes. He is garbed in fine silks, and wears many rings upon his long fingers. The second is the captain who captured you, a shorter, more stocky man with a bald crown and a permanent smirk carved in his jaw by an unlucky scar. The third is a sickly-looking female grey elf, with large, almost luminous grey eyes, her spine curled and her spindly fingers gnarled beyond all recognition. She smiles at you, and you are deeply disturbed.

    "Well, it appears you are awake. What is your name?" the tall man asks. You get the distinct impression he is some sort of nobility.

    After a brief internal struggle, you answer, "Circe."

    The man examines you for a moment, then smiles. "I see...Circe. Well, I've found you to be very special, Circe." He slowly looks you up and down, somehow being simultaneously incredibly lecherous and utterly detached. Your skin crawls. "I have spared your life for one reason and one reason alone. Would you care to guess what that is?"

    The elf smiles, revealing an ugly mess of misshapen teeth.

    "What," you spitefully ask, "you want to sleep with me?"

    "No, but I'm flattered by your assumption. I have need of you, or rather, one with your sort of talents. When I first discovered poor Sodel here," he laid one hand on the elf's decrepit shoulder before quickly withdrawing it, "I was...shocked, by the ability magic users had. I've studied the works of Såkzul Vabôkstukón and Asmel Othsinkot, of course, but she was the first encounter I had with the glorious power of Aether." The elf nodded, purring in her throat.

    "I have many, many enemies. There are those who envy my wealth, or rather, the wealth of my city. They would dare to harm me, and kill my poor citizens." You notice the captain glaring at you from beside the noble. "I need these enemies gone." He smiles, and reveals perfectly straight, white teeth.

    "So, in return for your service, I promise you that you will not waste away in this cell. Do we have an agreement?"

    "We have an agreement." Your answer is without hesitation. Anything to be back in Utin's sight.

    "Good. My name is Iton. I would shake your hand but...I do not touch peasants." He nods to the captain, who throws down his cloak. "Put that on, and we may continue. Sodel?" The elf seems to murmur something, and you feel your head clear and Utin's grace flow through you.

    Iton leads you from the dungeon, with the filthy grey elf ever close upon your heels. You pass torture rooms, cells overpacked with dissatisfied prisoners, and chained screaming lunatics who lunge at you as you pass. Eventually, you emerge from the dungeon, where Iton presents you with a simple cloth servants garb and tells you to eat and sleep. Sodel brings you to a room, where a small table lies waiting with good food and a bed rests in one corner. The elf doesn't speak to you, nor does she avert her eyes when you are ready to change.

    Now would be a good time to converse with Utin, or reflect upon your elemental abilities. Sodel is clearly gifted with Aether magic.

    You seek Utin's presence, and after a while He fills your soul with power. The elf's eyes widen.

    "Yes, Star-Child? What is it that you seek from me?" His voice is soothing to you.

    You question him to Aether, and he responds: "Its symbol is the space between stars, the unreality that simply Is. It is the domain of the schism, of the shield, and of silence." When you ask him how it was able to cut Him you, he tells you that he felt no break in truth, only a weakness of will and a frailty of the soul.

    In your mind, you notice that Utin's Eye seems slightly less bloody.

    No, no setting the place on fire! Taking over the world in the name of Utin is better (plus, we can burn things and be protected by law).

    Does Aether require a specific emotion, or is it something that can be used to enhance the other elements?

    You continue with your inquiries of the Star-Ghost, asking him of the opposition of Aether.

    "Aether is the antithesis of all and yet none. It is nothing, and thus the obverse of everything. But to mortals, its strongest polarity is that of Spirit." He senses your third question. "Little one, Aether rules with apathy and rejection, a denial of others and yourself. It is a lonely and quiet path."

    "Wait in child, for the stars are not yet right for your second awakening."

    He fades from your mind, and you begin to think of Earth. After a brief moment of reflection, you notice how vulnerable you were when you created the stone wall to hold back the soldiers, and this moment of weakness allowed you to be struck down. The energy required to shape stone must have impacted the flames shielding your body. You also recall that you had to rely on your followers when you created the four stone golems.

    You feel refreshed as you ready yourself to meet Iton. You begin to reach for your fire, but Sodel quickly wraps you in iron threads of Aether. "Not here," she whispers, her voice disgusting, "you can't do that here." A glare causes her to flinch away.

    The elf leads you to Iton's throne room, where you find the throne empty. The lord is instead resting on a couch, reading from a small, leatherbound book. A beautiful girl softly plays a harp nearby. He stands when he sees you.

    "Good." He smiles that perfect smile. "Now, about our agreement." He returns to the couch, leaving you standing. "Recently, the city of Libash has been causing me problems. The ruler of that city, a hateful bitch by the name of Lady Deler, once thought I should marry her. Ha!" He motions for the girl to stop playing.

    "Now, normally this wouldn't be reason enough to dislike someone. It happens frequently amid the higher echelons of society, you know," he smirks. "Or rather, you don't know. Anyway, she has been bribing several steel dwarves to denounce my city and its people. Unfortunately, steel dwarves, being as they are, have a rather heavy political influence, and thus in recent years the caravans passing through Unvurn have been significantly more meager than what I would like.

    "Kill her? No no no," Iton laughs, and the sound has a keening, wretched quality to it.

    "I want you to /destroy/ her," he grins. "As for the dwarfs, they will know who has done this and why. You need not worry your little commoner head with the politics of the matter, dear.

    "Go out, and slay Deler, her court, and all of her immediate family. Violently. And do try to stay alive, as I have more little tasks for you, yes?"


    Sodel hands you a small purse filled with travel supplies as you exit the city. "Don't even think about vengeance...Circe," she whispers to you. It is nearly nighttime, and the gates are remaining open only for her. "I can smell you coming a mile away." She turns from you and shuffles through the heavy doors, which shut with a resounding crash.
