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. :)

Oh yeah, descriptions.

Ghalen sees Fei, and bows. Upon seeing his dress attire, it reminds him to alter the appearance of his robes. He concentrates for a moment, and the clothes begin to shift and swirl with new color, as he now appears in the military dress attire for Laeren, as appropriate for an armsmen in personal service to a member of the royalty, although no visible marks of rank appear, as not to offend anyone there that has earned a rank in Laeren's armed forces. Between the library and personal assistance from 'Thel, he has it right down to the gold leaf stitching. He also alters his raven hair to grow, appearing mid-back in length, with elven side-braids that join under a gold clasp behind his head. His weapon changes to look like an armsman's longsword on his hip.
He leaves enough variance in his attire as to not be a direct copy, but the styles, cuts and colors fit the bill well.

"I hope this style of dress is to your liking, M'Lady." he says to Tyrrin.

Tyrrin turned around to greet Fei and raised an eyebrow at his appearance. Although it was amazing she could turn and pace and such given the dress she was wearing. It was a relatively modest off the shoulder white dress covered with intricate silver embroidery. But it was tight enough that it might as well have been painted on, and there were no slits in the skirt, which didn't even flare at all until well below her knees. Presumably the fabric was at least a little stretchy to accommodate movement. Before she could say anything, Ghalen called her attention back to him and she blushed and turned away from him. Seeing him like that made her want to do things. Things there was definitely not currently time for. "Yes," she squeaked, and then put her hand over her mouth before she embarrassed herself further.

The djinn raises an eyebrow to Andromeda as the first one passes out in the order he gave, the second eyebrow comes up with the second, and as the third falls, he's totally grinning about it.
"Ah, no need to do that. I don't keep debts, plus we didn't put anything on it. We'll save the fun stuff for next time."
Pocketing the rest of the bottle, which had less than a third of it remaining, they make to leave the train. Jasper holds his hand out to help Andromeda across the gap of the tracks, if she chooses to take it.
"Well, given the eventful ride, and the new commentary, I'd say we should be able to find something fun here."

She gladly accepted his help, and grinned at his comment. "Yeah, this should be good."

Once they stepped out onto the platform, they got their first good look at goblin town. There were no roads once you left the station, but there were dirt paths that meandered throughout. The whole place looked like a forest, except the trees were actually giant mushrooms, and there were large green ferns in clusters throughout. There wasn't much in the way of sunlight, but the ceiling and walls of the enormous cavern were covered with glowing lichen in various colors, creating a feeling of stepping into a surreal painting. There were streetlamps lining the paths at irregular intervals, each lamp sculpted in a different shape. There were no permanent structures here. There were brightly painted wagons, tents, folding tables with merchandise spread across them. And the people....the two of them didn't even begin to stand out here. There were humanoids, and various other oids, in all different shapes and sizes, hawking wares or wandering around the market. A parade of fruit sellers nearly bowled them over when they tried to step off the platform, but they didn't pause to actually try and sell them anything. They only glared and marched on.

After a wonderful, quiet lunch with Ginni and Squeaky, Ace got ready for the festival. Which for him, only required a quick investigation into the latest Laeren fashions, and then altering his appearance to be slightly elven looking.

He shows up to the teleport room shortly after Fei arrives, and smiles to his best friend "Hey Ty, all ready and good to go."

He nods respectfully to Ghaelin and Fei "Oh good, I'm not the only one who is gonna feel a bit outta place." He says teasingly.

Fei bows back respectfully to Ghalen, then prepares himself for Tyrrin's iminent evaluation of his appearance. Ghalen's change of wardrobe and the ensuing awkwardness, however, halts that, and the young monk quietly steps back outside of the room to await the others.

"Thank you," Tyrrin said, still blushing furiously, and trying to gather the scattered pieces of her dignity.

"Ah. Fei. And Casil. Good you're all ready to go.....er...." she said, a bit taken aback to see Fei in traditional elven dress. This was apparently an evening for surprises.

His momentary reprieve probably over, Fei starts to turn around but stops when he sees Tyrrin's apparent struggle with her own sense of composure. He politely returns his gaze back to the hallway.

"As my body type is not conducive to most styles of elven dress, I had to make certain...concessions. It was not my intention to be disrespectful - if you feel that this will not be respectful attire, I will change it."

I just realized that I never posted the description:

Fashion Fu:
A fusion of a man's formal mandarin robe and a nehru long coat over pants and a vest (think Neo in Matrix 2). It accentuates his form handsomely, but still allows for great range of movement based on its cut.

The color scheme is that of his monastic order - warm colors associated with the dawn (red, orange, rose). There is intricate embroidered patternwork on the coat, but not in any contrasting colors - it can be noticed either by the angle at which light catches it, or by touch (a nod to elven senses, of course).

"No, there's nothing wrong with how you're dressed! I was just surprised. Given how last minute your invitation was, I wasn't expecting you to have time to find such an appropriate outfit," Tyrrin hurried to reassure. "And I do apologize for the lateness of your invitation. There was some last minute rearranging when Ginni decided not to come after all. Completely understandable and certainly the right decision given certain...uh....other factors...." She hurriedly glanced out the door and down the hall. Not seeing Ehos and Jaiye, she continued. "My idiot brother got himself into some trouble involving a demon recently. It's probably best not to confuse things."

Ace nods in agreement "I'm sure if she had another week to get a handle on her shape-shifting, she would have accompanied us. But, she has some research to keep her occupied, so that good. I feel bad, but I totally understand, considering my personal history."

"I had heard from my fellows at the Infirmary that Ginni is undergoing some...changes. I hope she is alright, the young monk says to Casilkasheyith.

"I....was wondering why I received the invitation in the first place. I hope that Ehos is alright as well...did this occur before or after your mother's visit to Avalon? She asked me about him while she was here."

"I suppose that depends on which visit," Tyrrin said, keeping an eye on the corridor. "She's been here a lot lately. Jaiye went to her for help getting some stuff together in case the demon shows up again. She has to hide it all from Ehos because the demon still has a connection to his mind and can easily influence or control him," she said scowling. "So I've had to act as go-between so he doesn't notice so he can't unconsciously pass the information on. It's totally messed up. And not a word about any of this once they show up," she said with an all-purpose glare at everyone for good measure.

"I have only seen her one time - when the firebird camp was first being set up, and she had brought a contingent from Laeren to assist in accommodating them here."

"Of course," Fei replies with a conciliatory bow. "Let us discuss other subjects then. Could you tell me in what capacity I will be serving during my attendance?"

Those in the Teleportation Room hear a conversation just outside the door.

"We're right here, so can you guys just give me one night without any outbursts? If you shoot him in the foot while we're out, it won't stop what we're doing, and we won't go to the infirmary."
"Of course we can. No promises."
There's a sigh and the door gets pushed open, one elf enters holding a sort of cape.
Elf is somewhat of a loose term here, seeing that he has numerous other affectations besides pointed ears. His right half has Platinum blonde hair, blue eyes, cat like claws, and a large white feathered wing. His left half has black hair, a red eye, tough black claws, and a leathery black bat wing.
Most of this, however is covered over in a new guise as he throws the cape over his shoulders. With that done, he appears almost completely Elven, with purple eyes and salt and pepper hair, and no wings or claws.

Having entered with his eyes to the floor and then being preoccupied with the cape, he now looks up and sees the occupation of the teleport room.
"Oh, uh, excuse me. I can wait for the next one..."

Fei (and presumably the others) stop conversing immediately and look up at the unknown new arrival. He looks to the others.

"Shall we step outside and wait for the rest of our group? If others are going, we should probably not prevent the use of the teleport room."

"If it's all the same to you lot, I'd prefer you all go through at once. No need to be fussy about who's using a doorway and it drains the power something awful to keep opening and closing it. Just saying," the grumpy dwarf who most often manned the teleport room in the evenings called out. "Everybody take a token from the basket and let me know when you're all here and ready to go," he added grudgingly.

At this point a clicking sound can be heard in the hallway and a glance outside reveals Ehos and Jaiye heading towards them down the hallway, Jaiye clinging to Ehos's arm and muttering curses against the sadist that invented the high heeled shoe.

"You're late," Tyrrin snapped.

Ehos rolled his eyes and held up his data pad with the free arm. It read: Shoe trouble.

Fei looks over to the dwarven operator, a small smile on his face. "I....think we can honor your preference now, sir" he says with a grateful bow. (^-^)

Returning his face to its normal serene appearance, he turns back to rest of the gathered group.

"Are we ready to depart?"

"I will seek this Melody Waverider," Djalos says simply, before vanishing into the shadows. It isn't a dramatic thing for him, apparently. It's actually a conscious effort to not always be in stealth-mode around people when he has the opportunity.

Djalos communicates his intent to his bracelet, creating a series of vibrations that serve as arrows similar to the school's. He follows them presumably to Melody's room.

Ghalen retrieves a token for himself and Tyrrin, handing hers to her. He doesn't say anything to the dwarf, however, preferring to have Tyrrin give the word.

As Fei gathers his token from the basket, he reflects on Tyrrin's words regarding her brother and the possible repercussions if the worst was to happen (and presumably the real reason he was invited in the first place).

While listening to the others speak, the young monk uses his Neural Lace to link to his school email and the communication system, he quickly sends messages to James, Sabumnim Sunwake and the Infirmary that if he is needed he will only be reachable by technological means.

Once he delivers the messages, he brings his Lace's mental defenses online so they will be in place before they arrive in Laeren.

He makes a hand motion, somewhat lackingly illustrating his agoraphobia.
The set of citrus sellers sally sourly southward of the sightseeing students, slightly slowing their shop searching. Jasper raises an eyebrow as they march past. Undeterred, the two set forth into one of the paths, looking at the scattered wares.

"That's nice. That you always have Hunnin. That way you don't have to feel lonely," she said, resting her chin on her hands. "I don't know what spirits are. They have their own world?

A hag standing behind a table of ceramic flowers grinned back at her. There was a stirge on a perch behind her, looking depressed. "Care to buy a flower, dear?" the hag asked maybe a little too eagerly.
An stopped and glanced over the flowers before shaking her head. "Sorry," she said. "Not what I'm looking for." She quickly backed away from the table before things with the hag could turn ugly. "Geez," she muttered once she was out of earshot of the flower seller. "how dumb does she think I am? Every one of those things was cursed."
She paused to let a gelatinous cube pass by on its way who knows where, and quickly changed direction when she saw a group of drow down the next path. "This way! I have a really good feeling about not that way," she said, taking a sharp left.

Jeran decided to go and check on Pyry to see how the young icebird was adjusting to life at Avalon, but there was no answer when he knocked on the door. Probably still sleeping.

Well, there was that other guy who helped out with the whole mess with Tryko'Sam and Cho. Kevin. He could at least stop by and let him know how things had turned out in the end. He touched the wall and waited for the arrows to show him where Kevin was.

Ace flashes a grin at Jaiye "Spectacularly bad ideas can often also be incredibly fun ones." He says, grabbing his own teleport token.

"weird in what way?"

The cat playfully punches him on his shoulder. "Hey, you coulda had as much as you wanted if you ordered it all to start with."

He produced the credit stick and plugs it into a port on the console, a number steadily ticking down until flashing green with a little noise indicating it had been payed. He pushes a button and they're both gently lowered to the ground as the door slides open with a soft hum.

Limmor finally notices the ears, prompting half of him to be very concerned for her safety and the other half to excitedly hope to see her publicly executed. The part of him given control for hopefully the length of the festivities settles on nervous indifference, being that it's not his problem if it won't affect him personally. He didn't really have any strong feelings towards Lycans, equally unconditionally loving and hating basically all of existence. He may have been breed to fight them, but that's what his parents wanted, and that meant he didn't.

He tugs at the edge of his sleeveless purple tunic, always wondering why normal elves enjoyed holes in their fashionable clothes.

Jasper smirks a little at the large depressed mosquito. Poor thing was probably her familiar, and that kind of bondage wasn't something he could end with a snap of his fingers. "Shame. They all looked kinda nice."

He raises an eyebrow as the large acidic cube passes by.
"Huh, free range gelatine."
He sets a quick gust up to air jump them over the caustic trail it leaves behind, making sure An lands on her feet on the other side.
As they go through the next lane to skirt the drow, he looks to a Ratfolk vendor in a pair of red breeches unloading things from a fine white carriage old and broken from use, all sorts of things from glass shoes, wands, and hats to old mops and brooms and lots of other things around and about, many with a faint glow of magic.
"What about right here? Could take a look."

The arrows would lead him to one of the alchemy testing labs.

Inside Kevin is staring at a chalk board full of evenly spaced letters, all of which are G, C, T, or A. There's a section highlighted.
For some reason there's top hat the size of a soup can, a hermit crab, and a few jars of chemicals on the table nearby.

Sorry! Tired Lyn makes stupid mistakes. Like forgetting that Djalos is blind! I'm so used to making visual descriptions of everything... So what Djalos would notice...let's see...probably can't tell pajamas from normal clothes, although messy hair might still register....would have some sense that the room is bigger than standard what with standing in front of the open door....otherwise I have no bloody idea how to write descriptions for a character who echolocates. :P
We really need to get Djalos a Cyclops style mask....

Tybalt leads the two out of the restaurant and back to roughly the place they arrived in.

"Okay, my favorite market is in Sindria, unless you have one you like better. It's around one o clock in Sindria right now, so a little hot."


"Alright, we seem to all be assembled here and ready to depart," Tyrrin said stiffly.

The operator gave a nod and a grunt, pulling various levers in order to open a magical portal, that hung on the wall like a door made of light. "Go on through, one at a time please. Break the token when you want to return. You don't need to be all together. Break the token at any point for a safe return here. Something to keep in mind," he said with a pointed look at Jaiye. He wasn't born yesterday. It wasn't like he didn't know what kinda trouble they were bound to stir up. But that was the way with students. Couldn't resist poking metaphorical hornets' nests. Sometimes literal ones too. Gotta let 'em learn on their own.
