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. :)

"That I can handle. I got into the habit of keeping spare clothes in my locker. My years at Avalon were not kind until recently. Well, before all this, anyway. It was nice until this."

"Pretty sure that Kitty had everything to do with that. She's kind of amazing like that. She was the one person I couldn't ever drive away when Esperanza was forcing me to be awful to everyone. She sees the best in everyone. Which is why she's probably going to take it hard when she finds out how she was betrayed by that little bastard. I mean, you have to tell her. She'll find out anyways. Best coming from you."

"Anyways, I'm around if either of you need me. For anything. No matter how stupid. I don't exactly have a lot of friends, so my social calendar is pretty much wide open for whatever. I know Kitty already knows that, but I wanted to make sure you knew that it extends to you too."

No such things as days off for Healers," she said with a shrug. "So I should see him at the infirmary. But I can send him a message just to be sure. He gets called away for emergencies fairly often. If there's one thing that this school needs more of, it's psychic healers."

"Alright. I'll ask Krays, then. He is proficient in raising ex-champions." he says teasing a bit.

"Yes, well, hopefully that ex part will be temporary. If not, you might want to look into gaining cold immunity," she replied, teasing him right back, although he can tell that she's still very stressed.

There are people on the infirmary staff who have the ability to override the isolation protocols. Or you could try contacting Tamina or Phaezeriel via telepathy (I can't remember if you have that or not). But would you know about Phaezeriel's Schism, and would you risk jogging his elbow if you don't know?

Alys smiles at Talysmyn and helps her slowly to her feet. Once she is steady, Alys begins to lead her back to the school, one arm around her shoulders.

Talysmyn can't seem to stop talking as they walk. "He was dead. That gnome was dead, wasn't he? I mean, of course he was. You can't exactly be alive with an arrow through the eye. I mean, duh. I just never saw anybody die before. Was I dead? Only that was an awful lot of blood you cleaned off of me. Oh, man. Mom would totally freak out if she knew. She sent me here cause this was supposed to be a safe place, you know? Cause I was so tired of always moving around. She's way paranoid, my mom. Ever since my dad died I think. Not like I remember what she was like before that though. I was too little. I don't even remember my dad at all. Maybe Mom was always super paranoid. I guess I wasn't paranoid enough. I mean, really, I can't believe I fell for that. It's so obvious in hindsight. Of course Zane wouldn't be inviting me to go for a romantic walk in the woods. I don't think he even knows my name. It was totally an illusion. Like, duh, Lyzzie, of course it wasn't real."

Alys smiles at her nodding at the appropriate parts to assure Talysmyn that Repp is dead and that the whole setup was a scam.

A perceptive person might notice that Alys is also experiencing some negative emotions that she is doing a rather admirable job of hiding, Oh how I WISH I could talk to people!

Training Montage!

Ginni paced back and forth for a while, basically arguing with herself, before she walked out across the landscape straight towards the mist. Her expression was determined. And a little terrified. Okay a lot terrified.
When Ginni get close to the mist, the parts that have managed to seep out through the cracks coalesce into the version of Ginni that Phaeze saw in the mist before.
"Oh, hell no!" Ginni said, horrified. "I may not be able to help being a demon, but that outfit is NOT happening!" This reaction so startled her demon side that she forgot to fight back when Ginni reached out and grabbed her wrist. She dissolved into mist again, but the mist had changed color now. It was silver.

The next attack was more subtle, although she couldn't help but notice that demon her was wearing a classier outfit now. It hit her right in the jealousy next. And she had plenty of that. She'd always been jealous of people who had families. It was the only thing she'd ever wanted and the one thing she apparently couldn't have. "Okay, I get it," she snapped, frustrated. "I don't get to have everything I want. So? It's not like you're offering anything better." The demon didn't have a good answer for that one and this one also dissolved into silver mist, but it was close.

She lost count after that. It was a long, long parade of every doubt and insecurity she'd ever had. Every nasty thought, every possible perceived evil. Except...well, it was kind of...shallow. I mean, yeah these were negative aspects of herself, but...was this really all that the demon had to work with? No, it was probably holding the big guns for last. This was just the warm up act to wear her down. And to some extent it was working. Every time she faced down a piece of her demonic essence it took effort. It might be making her stronger, but it was also making her tired.

The latest one formed up. They were starting to look downright sophisticated now. Still sexy, but not slutty. "What are you holding out for anyhow?" Demon-Ginni taunted. "Love? Love is a joke. All it ever brings is pain. Are you going to try to contradict me? That boy...I know he hurt you." Ginni put her hands on her hips, totally fed up with this one. "Seriously? That's where you're going with this? Yeah, he did hurt me. So what? Do I look like the kind of girl who is just going to lay down and die because the boy I like isn't as perfect as I wanted him to be? Just no. This isn't even worth my time," she said as the latest demon vanished into silver mist.

Ginni sagged, breathing heavily. She wasn't sure she could keep this up. She eyed the barrier still....ugh.....still full of red mist. And the barrier was getting weaker.
"Phaezeriel? I don't know if I can keep this up," she said nervously.

Phaezeriel stands and watches in admiration as Ginni engages with her demon side. She is clever, strong, resourceful, and above all, determined. But she clearly does not know how to fight an endurance match, ::Ginni, step back for a few moments. This will be an endurance match. You are doing really very well, but let yourself have a moment to recover.::

Once she returns to his side, he reachs out and touches her shoulder. Her fatigue drains out of her like water running off a duck's back, and she can feel Phaezeriel's strength being offered to her. All she need do is accept it and it will become her strength.

Seen closer he can see that the signs of a struggle are limited to this area. Whoever was involved in this most likely either teleported or flew away. And shoved under a bush so it wasn't immediately obvious from the air was a messenger style bag with the Avalon crest on it.

Ginni was more than happy to step back from the fight. Especially when Phaezeriel restored her energy. "Thanks. I don't think I could have done this without your help. Still not sure if I can. I've got a feeling the really nasty parts are still coming up. But if nothing else I'll go down fighting," she said, trying to psych herself back up for this fight with herself.

Ace, unable to gain access to the isolation room(and thankful that he couldn't since that meant most others could not either), reaches out to Ginni telepathically ::"Hiya love, Repp is dead, which I'm guessing you already knew. Krays trapped his soul inside his spooky staff, which I'm told is possibly the worst thing in the history of things to happen to a soul. Anyways, I'm outside your room if you need me. Not sure I can enter or help you without being in there, but I'm here for ya"::

Tybalt sighs a little when Pyry finishes.

"What did I tell you about getting in fights, man? That's only giving them what they want."

He ruffles the icebird's hair as he likes to do.

"I know it sucks, believe me, I know. But fighting people isn't gonna help. It only ends up with both of you stuck in here."

He hands Pyry a set of two black sticks.

Ginni's mind

The pillar that represented her connection to Ace lit up like a Christmas tree. Ginni seemed to gain energy from that, but at the same time she looked concerned. She knew that demon-her would see this as a weakness.

Ace gets the impression of happy to hear from him but really, really busy now.

It's fairly true, he's very charismatic, akin to the manner depicted in tales of heroic sorts, Captain America types, etc. All this without effort on his part. Certainly not based on his looks, at all, just an 'aura' around him of sorts.

"That being said-- sure, I'll take a crack at it, but I ain't sure what to talk about with a lot of these people.

He takes a breath now, and closes his eyes as if calming himself. "Maya assured me that to the best of her awareness, and ability, I'm not being influenced mentally. My usual innate barriers are in place, blah blah. Science talk. She seems happy though, teaching and all that. Glad she's found a home." Then a shrug, and the smile comes on his face.

Alys shakes her head, then pulls her notepad out of her pocket. She stops for a moment to write on it, concentrating mightily. After a few moments, she hands the notepad to Talysmyn and resumes walking.

The note is full of tangled letters, characters that are utterly alien to Talysmyn, and scribbled out parts.

Can write in common. Very hard. Can talk to foxes in fox form, largely non-verbal. Nothing else works. NO telepathy, please! Don't want to carry you.

"Okay, so you can talk. But nobody can understand. Wow. That must be a total bummer. Have you tried, like, sign language? I mean, if you're not actually saying anything out loud would that help?"

Alys shakes her head, then pulls her notepad out of her pocket. She stops for a moment to write on it, concentrating mightily. After a few moments, she hands the notepad to Talysmyn and resumes walking.

The note is full of tangled letters, characters that are utterly alien to Talysmyn, and scribbled out parts.

Can write in common. Very hard. Can talk to foxes in fox form, largely non-verbal. Nothing else works. NO telepathy, please! Don't want to carry you.

"Oh, I can't do telepathy. That might be useful. Just low-level empathy. And languages. I understand all of them. Well, not all of them. Duh. I didn't understand those crazy words you just said. But I could probably understand fox. I don't know. I've never really tried talking to animals. Well, except for this one really mean dog that used to live near us because it broke its chain and I didn't want it to eat me. But mostly we lived in cities, you know? So not a whole lot of animals to talk to. Well, except the rats. Not really a big fan of the rats, to be honest."

Sorchan nodded. "I'll go and see what if anything I can find out about who took her," he said. "Show me where her belongings were found," he said to Cindra.

Cindra nods, "Flying will be faster, sir."

Regardless of form, she will lead the way to where Lucas is as fast as she can manage.

The Headmaster looks up a little startled and pushes a letter to the side before opening the door.

"I'm sorry if you were waiting long. I was distracted."

"It's okay, Headmaster. Umm, it's just that Adon has had some disturbing news. I should probably let him explain. But he needs your help."
"Of course I'll help. You may stay if you'd like. Having a friend nearby may help as well."

adon closes his eyes, and takes a breath.

"Alright, well... Firstly, I've got some sort of horrible.... Thing, contained inside me. Reality melting abomination. And I was told you'd know who to direct me to."

"What can you tell me about it?"

"It's... Hard to look at. Tends to associate with static."

that last bit might be evident, due to his eyes being nothing but static, right now.
"Causing minor skeletal changes. And it exists... Outside. And it'll drag me with it when I die."

Once they are clear of obstructions like students and such in the hallways, Sorchan will transform into his bird form and follow Cindra to the area where Lucas found Raelle's things. He lands and changes back.

"Tell me as much as you know," he said grimly.

While he is on that thought he takes a few hairs out of raelle's comb in case it might be useful later.

Morrivan arrived at the scene, out of breath and looked around wildly.

"Oh, no!" she moaned. "That's definitely Raelle's scarf. I gave it to her for her birthday."

"say calm now. Panicking helps no one, least of all Raelle. Now then. She's probably still alive, try to focus on that if you need to. Do you know anyone who would want to kidnap her but not kill her.

Michael spent the walk back to the school in silence as he thought of how to explain all this. There was going to be a lot of crying and probably some hitting too, but he couldn't keep this from Kitty.

He grabbed his clothes from the locker and then went to the gym to shower before going looking for Kitty. Quietly he took her back to her room and handed Saffire to her.

"I have news about the murderer, Kitty. He's dead now. I went with Ace and Keme and Keme's sister and... we killed him. He can't hurt anyone else now."

"Pretty sure the ex-boyfriend wouldn't stoop to kidnapping, she could have a stalker but if so they've been hiding well, as far as special powers go she's some kind of mathematical genius but I don't think that's exactly widely known, but politics.....You'd know them better than I would. Start with the council and work your way down," she said, standing there looking utterly miserable.

And then Sorchan showed up and demanded to know what had happened.

"Raelle was supposed to meet me by the lake after classes. She never showed. So I asked some people to help me look. I didn't want to sound the alarm if she was just with her sisters or something. Lucas found her scarf on the ground there. And her bag. And everything else as you can see. We have no idea where she is."

"Hmm." Sorchan stalked around the area, examining the broken branches and the disturbed dirt. "Where did you find her bag exactly?" he asked Lucas.

Kitty sat there speechless for a moment. "This is what you were hiding from me when you left? You know what he did to me....what he did to my animal friends...and you didn't think that I deserved a chance to be a part of that?" she asked, her voice rising as she spoke. She was the angriest that Michael had ever seen her.

"I didn't want to see what would happen when you learned it was Rep. I didn't want you to see what I was going to do." He didn't balk at her reaction. He deserved this. "What we all did."

"A nexus is, by definition a center or connection. There is nothing saying it has to be a nexus that produces something, yes?"

She went pale. "It was Repp? But he...But I never even....." She seemed to fold in on herself and Saffire desperately licked at her face making meeting noises.

Then she set Saffire down. "How dare you!" she screamed at Michael. "How dare you decide to hide parts of yourself from me! And how dare you treat me like some...some fragile doll who can't handle hard things! I may not be a shinobi, but I was raised as one, and I very much doubt anything you could have done out there would have shocked me! I'm the one he hurt, and I deserved to be out there too!"
