The Avalon Chronicles

Game Master lynora

This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

He nods, and gives Ephebe a quick "I'm glad you're ok" hug n kiss, and walks toward where Anwar and Lysander disappeared to.

The brothers were stopped and talking in their birth language until Krays joins them.

"Yes, Krays? I hope you aren't going to get teary-eyed too. It really won't suit you.""


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

Looks confused.
"No, not really my way to sad...

Your end seems to be such a waste, and you've been very helpful to my family. I came to see if I could do anything for you, any thing you would need that I could provide."


"As cliche and.. pun-like.. as it may seem, my time has run out. My brother is going to do what he can to send my spirit back to the point I would've died of old age. You could help with that, if you wish."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"I would, and I will. If it's a painful ordeal, I can ask my Patron to ease the transition..."


"Thousands of years will catch up in an instant. I won't feel anything. My soul might feel a twinge going back to when it left time, but I'll be fine."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"How may I assist, then?"


"You're Death's latest champion, yes?" Anwar asks, looking Krays over. "I'll remove the curse on my brother and you can use your power over death to hold him here briefly before I send him back."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"Still might be more accurate, but yes. I will do so."

He gathers in the power of his station, blackness of negative energy and shadow roil around him, the runes on his staff burst into sickly blue light...

"I am ready."


Anwar nods as phantasmal scales appear overlaid on his body, titled heavily to one side. As he hugs Lysander the scales slowly even out. As soon as they are even Lysander's body just.. vanishes, leaving only his spirit kept in place by Krays.

"I'll see you soon, big brother..." The Champion of Balance says before he sends the spirit back to the time it belonged.

"Thank you, Champion Krays. It was easier without having to pull him from an afterlife just to put him back in one."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

Krays bows
"You're welcome. He has done many things in defense of my wife and children, even though we are dragons, even defending us from other hunters. It's a debt not easily paid, so it was the least I could do."
He pauses
"On another note, welcome back. I hope your return means that Light and Hope will settle down."


"I'm not sure if they will, but I can try to at least help. I've been out of the loop for several thousand years, after all."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"Well, you're welcome to come back to Avalon with us, and see how. It's probably the largest gathering of Champions in one place. Deception, Luck, Courage, myself...my wife was the Champion of Time. The previous champion of Hope is as well, but he literally died to get out of it. Love and Shadow are friends also, and visit.
Light...well. We'll see when we return.

Hopefully it's time to restore her to life."
Ponders
"I don't suppose the Champions were as... chummy in your time, with all that happened."


"Second time I meet any Champion I died, so it's really surprising. I suppose I'll just have to get used to it." Something bothered him though. Why were so many here? What Patron plan was going on...?

While they were waiting for Anwar and Krays to come back, Andromeda sidled up to Ephebe.

"So, ummm....awkward question: What did I miss? Since I've been gone? Err....how long has it been?"

"About a year since you faded completely. I'm not sure what the last things you remember are," Ephebe said, distracted. "Lots of babies. Most of which will hatch in a few months. James and Fi have four. Taron's a girl now. She and Kam have three. And your mom's pregnant. Twin boys. But they won't be born for quite a while yet. That's pretty recent. Grandma is doing well. She hangs out with Ryo's kids a lot. She likes being around small children. And she made a friend. The guardian of one of my students. They drink a lot of tea together. Umm.....let's see....I started an elementary school division. I'm the headmistress and teacher of the 'special' class. You know, the kids most likely to destroy the building. Well, not really destroy it, but you get the idea. Still doing the part time demon lord thing too, so there's never enough time. Ironic, I know. James built a bunch of factories in town and is cranking out hover cars and shuttles as fast as he can. Taron's ritual that caused you to get kicked out when you did turned the planet right side out. So that happened. And then he and Kam tried to assassinate Mezzenbone. Tried. And the Emperor retaliated against the resistance pretty bad. You can imagine how well your dad is taking that. I think that sums up the highlights."

"All of that! I was only dead for a little more than a year!" Andromeda cried in dismay.


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

Ephebe glared at her. "Don't you dare complain! You dropped me there, in the middle of your life! In the middle of your family! Who all thought that I was you! And you weren't there to help or explain. I was raised by demons, for gods' sakes! Like I even know how to be around normal people?! And I've been faking it as best I can because that's what you stuck me with, and now you're back and all of these people I've been working so hard not to disappoint are going to be so happy to see you and I don't even know where that leaves me! Because I've spent the last year scrambling to understand what I am and where I come from and what the history is, and the only person who can really tell me about Hunter stuff is dying right now, and there's so much I still don't know, and how the hells am I supposed to ever explain this stuff to my kids and teach them how to use their Hunter powers when I barely know what I'm doing myself?! And do you even know how much time travel it took to even start to understand the history of the amethyst dragons? It's not like there were records left! "


Image Cleric (Divine Gunslinger) 16/ Vigilante (Blitz) 16

"Feel better?" Andromeda said coldly.


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

"Not really!" Ephebe yelled back before stomping off, keeping a good distance between herself and Andromeda.


Image Cleric (Divine Gunslinger) 16/ Vigilante (Blitz) 16

"Well....that's a lot more awkward when it takes place out loud where everyone can hear it," Andromeda said self consciously.

"yeah I wasn't going to say anything but... Yeah... Don't know if the fact that I have no idea what's going on makes this more or less awkward...."

He beckons Anwar to follow him as he heads back where the others were.

He knew his wife. Through the anger, he sensed her trepidation.

Advice from the kobold that technically did/didn't carry on a semi-polygamous relationship with the same woman... Just saying.

Ignorance is bliss :)

Oh, please. After the whole Spin debacle she wouldn't allow me within a parsec of her love life. It's not as if it were all my fault.*. And I will admit to looking at some memories after the fact because I was curious, but that's it, I swear!

*:
Okay, so trying to continue living my life after I was dead and while I was sharing someone else's body was my fault, I admit. But I had good intentions! Mostly...


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

It's ok...I was more than happy to be un-friendzoned. It worked out for the best :)

::I know I told them, but I'm not sure they actually truly understood. Having Andromeda's ghost as a ride along during that time really muddied those waters. I'm not really sure how they're going to take it now that we are very obviously separate people. I'm not sure that there's still a place for me...I don't really know where I fit now that she's back.::

::Trust them to do the right thing. They will not do wrong by you. At the very least, Ryleh is not going to talk herself out of 4 great grand-children. Not to mention your role at Avalon.
And if it doesn't go well, if they suddenly completely change their personalities and abandon reason, then you still have our family. You will always fit with me and our children, Love.::

::This does remind me, however, we did mention to your mother that if she sees "you" to be extra careful it is "you". We should all go back together. Can you still teleport?::


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

There was a long pause. ::Okay, you make a valid point about Grandma. Maybe, just possibly, it's going to be okay. I don't think I'll feel truly at ease until after this is over, but I will try to not totally freak out any more than I already have.:: He can feel a surge of love and gratitude over their bond. ::And I am so very glad to have our family. I'll try to hang on to that thought.::

She looked up as Krays and Anwar returned. "It's over? He's gone?"


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

Nods.


"Try not to mourn him too much. He really didn't like people worrying over him when he'd get hurt."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

Ponders Anwar's suggestion, and then nods.


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

Ephebe shook her head and sighed. "That certainly sounds like the kind of messed up thing he'd say. Being dead still doesn't give him the right to dictate my emotions. But I already had this argument with him once."

She looked around at the group. "We should get back to Avalon. I am running out of time, rather literally, before it will become annoying and someone will have to fetch me a starcaster to make the trip. My connection with Kronos is already starting to fade."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"Alright. To your mother's shop?"


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

"Yes, that should work."


Male Kobold (Adult Black dragon) Gestalt Sorceror/Oracle Necromancer; Champion of Death

"Ok, you first. Not that I don't trust your former Patron, but...I don't trust your former Patron."

You were returned to your proper time a while ago. You're just in the location you teleported to before you were dragged through time.

"The split personalities does tend to make her unpredictable, yes. Although the better question is why she chose to split her personality in the first place. That's the question that's going to keep me up at night," she agreed.

With that she teleported into Aananda's lab mere milliseconds before her Champion powers switch off for good (probably).

"Ummm.....what went wrong?" she asked noticing the fist sized hole in the table.

Arthur looks at the screen in shock muttering "no no nonono this shouldn't-can't be happening nonno" he begins clutching his head "useless useless useless brain!" He then sweeps his hand across the desk and the data pads papers and other clutter get thrown across the room, one data pad in particular makes an arc to impact Hermes on the torso neither pad nor robot are significantly damaged by this any telepath in the area can hear what at first sounds like a high pitched background noise that gets progressively louder, at two points bolded above it spikes becoming almost painfully loud before fading to a level comparable to the mosquito phone ringtone. At no point in this tantrum does he notice the new arrival.

"We got the breach closed, but Melody was trapped inside," Aananda said, tersely, wincing at the psychic whine Arthur was producing.


Imagefemale weredragon (amethyst) gestalt Soulknife17/oracle10/divine gunslinger7

"Ah. Umm......okay. I got this. Just...calm down...everyone," she said, looking pointedly at Arthur when she said it. "Ummm.....there's a whole lot I need to explain, but not a lot of time to do it in, so just know that the whole threat is over so you don't need to worry about it. And do you have a spare starcaster I can use? I...can't so much with the instant teleporting anymore."

"I guess it's as good a place as any..."

Jasper waits for other people to jump back wherever they were going so he had a point of reference to jump to.

He arrives back in the lab where Ephebe landed.

"Oh, uh. People. Hi."

He glances around at the tersness in the room, narrowing his eyes at the one armed robot.

"I guess this is maybe a bad time... I'll, uh, I'll just be... not here..."

He glances over the collected people before edging out of the room... And finding himself in a storage closet. And then he's back into the room. And then he finds the door to the hallway, ducking under it as he leaves.

Hermes makes an attempt to catch the datapad, but he hasn't compensated for only having one arm quite yet. When he goes to catch it between his hands, he only succeeds and skillfully batting it away while gesturing towards it with his left upper-arm stump.

He looks down and back up to his hands, then back down to the datapad.

"My apologies. I will attempt to fix any damage I caused to the device."

"A demon lord? Well, that's interesting. Do you know which one? Might be someone she knows," she said, nodding towards Ephebe. "Professional interest and all that.

"Nice suit, by the way," she added to Jasper. "I really like the color."

Much earlier than he should have...."

Dave looks around as he is returned to the same place but different time.

He ports back to the infirmary to check to make sure that Tybalt was ok, believing them, but needing that confirmation anyway in order to relax.
Upon seeing the cat's sleeping face David smiles softly and ruffles his hair. He pets the hedgehog next and then tries to decide if he should catch the last bit of meditation class.

Tybalt is in fact asleep, but he seems ok. He rustles in the bed just a bit when his hair is shuffled, automatic cat reflexes pushing his head unconciously towards the petting before flopping over a bit in his sleeping state.

Jericho makes a small squeaking sound of appreciation when he too is pet. He likes it just as much as any pet, but people are often afraid to pet a hedgehog.

A small ball, about the size of a billiard ball has been sat in the cat's lap. It's half red and half white with a dime sized button on the black band between the two halves.


Just to clarify...did Anwar and Andromeda also come back to the lab with the others, or were they left behind?

So far only Ephebe and Jasper have ported back. Dave ported to a different location within the school. Krays, Anwar, and Andromeda have not teleported in yet. Of course that's about to change. But so far the excrement is still traveling towards the fan. ;)

I hope I did not throw said excrement

Bottom of page 1462. Ephebe's post. It was in the middle of a bunch of other important action stuff.

"Ooh, boy. Well, at least that gives her someone she can take out her anger on," Andromeda said, shaking her head.

"Well.....guess it's time to go home."

She took a deep breath and teleported back into Aananda's lab.

"Whoa. Well, this looks a lot different than the last time I saw it." She blinked back tears, surprised a little bit at the strength of her reaction. "Mom. Dad. I....I'm home," she said hoarsely.
