Link | by on 2014-05-12 00:26:38 (edited 2015-05-28 14:06:18)
Greetings everyone! It looks like things have slowed down again. My summer has started up so i have enough free time to actively watch over an RP again. This RP will have a limited cast of up to 6 people (Including myself). If you become interested in joining, please remember to post your profile to me for checking before posting here in the thread. If you have any questions, you can also PM me and I'll answer to the best of my abilities!

I really don't want to scare anyone away because I'm doing a Kingdom Hearts RP. If that worries you, please note that this RP is a Super Prequel - meaning you can jump into this RP without ever having played the games to know what's going on.

This RP has an intended of theme of 'Growth.' Something to keep in mind. The plot is much more mentally fleshed out in my mind than previous RPs. So if things do slow up in places while this runs I will easily 'push' things forward.

The RP has officially began. If you simply MUST join you can still PM me your profile.




Square Hex 2014 Presents:

*Not a Real Company!










Background


Alpenashia - the World that Once Was

Map of Alshia (Kind of Big)

Once upon a time, during the age of fairy tails... before the universe of many diverse worlds were formed. There was just one world. This world, Alpenashia - was the one world where all worlds originated from.

The world of Alpenashia was massive. So much so that no single person knew the full extent of the world's lands. Upon these lands, there lie many different beings, who lived in peace with one another. These races had developed for centuries on their own before they came into contact with one another - thus many sorts of diverse cultures existed. This world was filled with an abundance of Lux. Fragments of light which the beings of Alpenashia used to perform dazzling magic, and power fantastic Magiteck machines. Indeed, after the races became aware of one another, there was a long age of peace and prosperity, as the races sought to explore all of the world.

Far in the north, the explorers of the nations came across a frozen wasteland. Here, they where assailed by dark, malevolent beings known as Phantoms. These phantoms where openly hostile to these travelers, and in the explorer's frightful retreat, they ultimately lead the Phantoms back to their homes. The Age of Prosperity came to a frightening end, as the beings of Alpenashia found themselves under attack for the first time in recorded history.

The world survived the first assault after the practitioners of Magus turned their magic against the attackers. Despite the progress and power of 'Offensive Magic', there was simply not enough people who could perform Magus available. The lack of Magicians in the world made it impossible to defend all parts of their Realm, and thus some areas where forfeited to the invading Phantoms. These places quickly turned dark, foul, and foreboding as their realms where corrupted by the shadow of the Phantoms. Even worse was that these areas slowly but surely encroached out further, threatening to someday engulf entire towns and cities. These places, known as the Dead Zones, became unapproachable. Some towns and cities had to be abandoned after Dead Zones blocked their lines of transportation. Indeed, the People of Alpenashia have been steadily retreating for the past hundred years.

The key to Alpenashia's survival was believed to lie in Kingdom Hearts, the source of all Lux in the world that would give the power to turn back the tide of the Phantoms. In the Town of Twilight - a place where swords are used exclusively for peaceful meditation - there were a set of children whom lived out their peaceful days, unaware to the dangers that plagued their world, and neighboring Dead Zone that was slowly encroaching upon their homes.

Though unaware of it now. Someday, they will change the world.


The Heroes - and the Power of 'Bonds'

Throughout the RP. The heroes will be faced with making choices as they proceed with their adventure. While some choices are simply made to progress things forward, some choices have wider effects on what happens in the world. Making the 'right' sort of choices can lead to better outcomes, and even avoid some conflicts altogether. On the other hand, making bad choices can lead to a deplorable spiral that will be difficult to get out of. As RP master I keep track of the choices that are made against the intended storyline, and map out - as well as implement the outcomes later on.

Along with these choices, the characters share 'Bonds'. Opinions and feelings towards one another during various points in the story. The state of people's thoughts on one another show their worth during important parts of the story. Characters with strong bonds will be able to overcome crisis's that may come up due to bad choices previously, though - alternatively - bad bonds may lead to the story following darker paths. Bonds also may affect how tied fates of individual characters are, such as who happens to end up in the same group when the party is separated. At certain parts of the RP I'll ask participants to write out their character's thoughts and feelings towards the rest of the major cast for me to interpret.

The first such check will happen after the Childhood Prologue arc. This first arc will have a time skip between it's end and the start of the story proper.


A Prelude of a Prelude - Differences from Kingdom Hearts Proper

This RP is meant to be standalone from the actual Kingdom Hearts series. This RP utilizes ideas from it - but nothing else. You're not supposed have to had played the games to know what is going on in this RP alone.

[But Muh Canon!]


Boring Stuff - Rules

Rules:
Gendou City Rules
Be Reasonable
If you're going to have an extended absence make sure to please tell us here. Otherwise I'll assume you've dropped.
There is no such thing as 'waiting for your turn to post'. If you can post and continue the RP, do it! We don't bog down the story to wait for one absent person here!





Creating A Character


There are two major parts of your character bio. First is 'Basic info' such as your character's name and appearance. Second is your character's 'Skillset' which describes the abilities and traits your character carries into battle. Please do not post anything in this thread until your profile has been ok'd by me!

Basic Info

Name:
Age:
Gender:
Appearance: (Pic or Words, but everyone loves pictures more than words)
Weapon: (For this RP, practically any weapon is fair game to use except for Guns. If you know what a keyblade is and want to use one, please note it's entry in the 'But Muh Canon' section)
Personality: (Let's be diverse, yeah?!)
Bio: (All the characters will share something about their pasts in their final bios. This will be explained further when I start reviewing your profile.)



Skillset
This part of your character details your character's skill and expected performance in battle. This profile will ultimately need to be ok'd by me before it can be posted - so if you feel unsure about anything then please fill out what you can and PM me with your current profile and any questions. We will be able to resolve any issues together from there - what's seen here is just enough for anyone whose interested to make their first draft!


Way - Choosing your character's Way dictates the sorts of abilities you will be able to write for your character. The three ways all have inherit weaknesses in them - thus it is important for the party to work together in order to overcome each others individual weaknesses. The Available Ways Are:

Way of Strength - Impressia
Characters whom specialize in close range physical combat that favors aggressive tactics.
(+) Acess to 'Medium' and 'Strong' Phys Skills. Typically greater physical endurance and speed.
(-) Limited to 'Weak' Magic Skills. Limited to magic that reinforces your character's stats or heals. (Limited to Light and Darkness Elements). Limited to weak defensive skills.

Way of Balance - Battailia
Characters who seek to have the widest array of combat possibilities.
(+) Able utilize full range of elements. Capable of casting medium strength barriers.
(-) Limited to 'Weak' or 'Medium' Strength Skills in all Physical and Magic categories.

Way of Wisdom - Magus
Defensive and Long Ranged Characters who utilize powerful magics to defeat their foe's.
(+) Access to 'Medium' and 'Strong' Magic Skills of any element. Capable of casting Barriers. Larger Magic reserve. Can also posses strong defensive skills.
(-) Limited to 'Weak' Physical Skills, Strong Magic takes time to cast. Oftentimes severely disadvantaged when the fighting gets up close.



Basic Skill Set (Up to 4 skills total) - These are special skills outside of basic weapons swinging and magic casting that a user can readily call on in any fight. Basic skills merely need time to recharge between usages for the most part. Depending on the Style you choose, you can write Strong, Medium, or Weak Physical or Magic Attack Abilities, as well as Defensive, and Non-Attack skills. Though Kingdom Hearts has it's own library of skills and magic ready to use, please don't feel limited to those skills alone. Feel free to consider making up new skills of your own.

The 'Strong Medium and Weak differentiations are based on the power of the attack and it's recharge rate which are both positively correlated. (The more the power of the attack increases, the longer it should take to recharge). The complexity of the skill also decides what magnitude it is.

Advanced Skill Set (Up to 3 skills total) - These are advanced skills and techniques your character can use to change the tide of a fight. Be careful though, as each skill this powerful toolkit can only be used once per battle. More often than not, you will find all sorts of strong abilities listed here. These are your character's 'trump card' skills. You can get your skills in this category okay-ed now, but they will be available for your characters to use in the RP ONLY after it's progressed a little bit story wise. The limitations set by choosing a 'Way' are not as strictly enforced in this set.







Current Records

Phantom List
1) The Shadow - A Common Phantom
2) The Darkball - A Floating Phantom

Journal

Childhood Intro

Ch 0-01 - Beginnings in the Town of Twilight
Forta and Her Brother, Fujiin, are siblings living in Twilight Town. After Fuujiin loses his book, Forta enlists the helps of the local children to help look for it. This leads them to the tunnelways under the town, where they are suddenly chased by a malevolent 'phantom'. Thanks to a Powerful Magus named 'claudius'. Forta is saved. But Fuujin's whereabouts are unknown after that. Months later, Forta returns to school, with no memory of her brother. A group of friends forms around her, worried about what had happened to her due to the incident.

Ch 0-02 - Magic Cannot Make Dreams Come True
Some time has passed and Forta is fast friends with the group that surrounds her. But Celia, a Magus user, is scheduled to leave Twilight Town to continue Magus Training at Magus Order. Forta promises to make her wish come true before she leaves.

Later, Fatuita and Celia are pitted together in a match where they must choose a partner to fight with them. Celia chooses Forta, and Fatuita - a haughty magus prodigy, chooses Lico - one of the most powerful fighters in the class. Fatuita hatches a plan with Lico that involves trying to draw out a Phantom that had harbored itself inside her after the incident by injuring Forta severely but not killing her. To which Lico agrees.

Using her new move, Lico unleashes her previosuly limited power on Forta. Which results in her death.

Ch 0-03 - Childhood's End
With a Dead Zone, a wasteland inhabited by phantoms, spreading towards Twilight Town, the population is quick to try to abandon it. The children meet one last time in the Ice Cream shop where they met a week before the fateful match.

Fatuita approaches them and reveals that she was behind all of what had happened to Forta. The party give calm responses, save for Vadim - a normally quiet and timid boy - who lashes out violently against Fatuita. Lico comes to Fatuita's aid, and blocks Vadim's attempts to strike at Fatuita. The boy leaves the group, emotions astir.

Later, Vadim tries to attack Fatuita in an ambush. But it defeated. Fatuita leaves him Forta's Key Shaped Toy attached with a keychain and mysterious heart shaped emblem on it. Telling him to bring it back to her the day he 'grows up'. Fatuita says that she will admit Forta is someone worth saving when that time comes.

Thus, their childhood comes to an end as the children leave Twilight Town with their families.


The Departure

Ch 1-01 - The Story Begins Anew
Many years after Twilight Town Fell, the adjoining cities nearby are now being hounded by the expansion of the Dead Zone that similarly took Twilight Town. To avoid that fate, the Blade Schools banded together and decided to utilize their normally peacefully skills in order to oppose the Phantoms assailing their homes. Thus, the children such as Lynette and Roland found themselves in the Blade Union, passing their skills to many eager candidates to face the terrors outside.

Constantine was the ftonrline for attacks against Phantoms. And demanded many bodies to assist in it's defense. Thus, when the relatively peaceful town of Sprockett came under attack, the Blade Union had little to immediately spare in terms of manpower. Instead, Lynette and Roland where sent their with a small contingent of soldiers to hold out until the main force arrived. It was there that they would all meet again.

Fauita and Celia, now apart of Magus order, were dispatched to the town to deny the Phantoms of the Lux Node that they saught to take for themselves. It was their job to Absorb the large quantities of Lux in that node prior to the town falling into the Hands of the Phantoms. Though uncertain at first, Roland, the overall commander of the blade Union forces there, allowed Fatuita to do this, in exchange for her assistance in protecting the people leaving the town.


Ch 1-02 - Out and About
The group fought together to ensure the Lux node would be adsorbed, and for the town to be evacuated. The node was adsorbed, but the taks of protecting each and every civilian was too much for the few people at hand. Taking whoever they could, they left Sprokett in the wake of a large movement of Phantoms. After days of marching, to everyone's suprise, they came upon a large army from Blade Union. The one that Roland was supposed wait on.

The Failure of the defense of Sprockett was pinned on Roland. Who was then banished from the Cities under blade union control. Much of the group, including Lynette who wasn't held responsible for the event, decided to work towards helping Roland redeem himself. Fatuia and celia on the other hand, with their mission complete, were stranded, and the most common ways to get out of the area, save for walking on foot were denied to them. They all ultimately decided to head to Constantine, the next logical stop on the journey. There Roland could have a new start as a Blade Union member, and Fatuita and Celia could get closer to being able to report back home.

Fatuita and vadim had a minor spat over the wooden key Forta had left behind, when Fauita attempted to make use of it as firewood. It wouldn't be the last time tensions would flare up between them.


Ch 1-03 - The Enchanted Forest

To get into Constantine from the Magus Order's fortress, the group had to go through what was known as the Enchanted Forest. At the entrance to place, they encountered an Old Wizard who pleaded with them from help. When Fatuita ignored him, the group were ambushed by a wave of Phantoms.

After the phantoms where defeated, the Wizard explained that the entire forest was now crawling with Phantoms. All due to a spell that he had used which was meant to drive the phantoms away. Instead, as the party just experienced, the spell was attracting phantoms to the location. The forest was a critical path for Blade Union members going to Constantine, and apparently the were still people trapped in the castle. The group ultimately agreed to help out. They were lead through the forest by the Wizard, and encountered many phantoms along the way.

Close to the Castle in a clearing, the group took a rest from all of the fighting. They came upon an abandoned wagon, possibly owned by a trader had attempted to pass through when the phnatoms arrived. It was there that tensions flared up between Fatuita and Vadim, over the key. The two attempted to talk it out, but it only seemed to confirm that they mtutually didn't understand each other at all.

While tihs was going on the wizard had been scouting the castle for ways in that didn't have too many phantoms. The groups respite ended when he came back, announcing he found a way in.

My Characters

Edit 1 This profile reflects this character as she appears in the prologue arc, including her basic skill-set. Both will see changes after the prologue is over representing her personality as well as summary of her time between the prologue and the start of the story. This basic skill-set shown here is at the 'childhood level' below as what is seen for the rest of the characters below.

I didn't meant to seem to pull a fast one here everyone! I originally wanted to have characters edit their skills to have a 'childhood' version, but that would've been too much work for you guys! The basic skillset seen here was meant to show the format I was looking for when writing them.


Name: Forta (Childhood)

Age: 12

Gender: F

Appearance:

Personality: An energetic girl with an earnest disposition. Forta has spent much of her life helping in caring for her weak brother. Though not considered the smartest of the two, Forta is admired by the adults for her honesty. When she grows up Forta wants to become a Hero(ine) of Justice.

Weapon: Wonder Key - A durable large wooden key purchased as a souvenir from the Town of Locks. It's about as large as any regular training blade. Though considered a toy key, it can open up real locks if you hit them hard enough!



Skillset
Note that at the start of the RP your advanced skills WILL not be immediately availible. Rather, they're picked up as the story progresses forward. I've shown my character's Advanced Deck here for referance.


Way - Impressia

Basic Deck:

1) Limited Striker (Non Attack) - The user is a fighter who limits their attacks to a limited but quick and powerful strikes. The user's sword strikes hit with a bit more power as opposed to their contemporaries, increasing damage she inflicts by a little bit. Forta can overpower opponents when using her weapon, increasing the chances that she'll overcome an opponent during a parry, or simply when striking blades against one another.


2) Swing Strike (Phys Medium) - A powerful wide slash where the user swings their weapon from behind and down onto an opponent. The movement of the attack allows the user to reach close range opponents just beyond their weapon's length while attacking. The user can alternatively strike upwards to send the enemy flying.

Swing Strike can be used as the start an attack chain, or as a sort of finisher skill for a combo. 20 Second recharge Period.


3) Sonic Stroke (Phys Strong) - The user attacks the enemy with two Successive Thrusting Attacks with their weapon. The attack can quickly close in up to medium distances - though alternatively they can combine the two thrusting attacks into one to reach enemies from a long distance.

40 Second Recharge Period.


4) Lux Convergance (Non Attack) - The user reinforces their strength with the power of Lux for a period of 30 seconds. While under the effects of this skill, the range of the user's weapons are slightly increased. Each attack the user performs will also have additional light damage in addition to it's regular physical damage with each strike.

45 Second Recharge Period.



Advanced Deck:

5) (Locked) Brilliant Countermeasure (Mag Medium) - The user summons an array of 6 Spears of Lux that then rush into the sky to strike a distant opponent. The spears fly out in a wide pattern, meaning that they will strike the opponent at different angles (in front) when the attack reaches it's destination.

The skill can intercept opponents at long range. A fast opponent can dodge the skill at longer ranges. Up close however requires more specialized techniques to guard against an attack form all sides very quickly.


6) (Locked) Zantetsuken (Phys Strong) - The user takes a brief moment to focus and ready their sword, and then performs a powerful sliding dash that strikes the opponent with a lightning-fast sword stroke, dealing serious damage to the opponent.

The powerful slash from this skill requires specialized defensive skills in order to feasibly counter. Otherwise the attack is practically guaranteed to hit an opponent if the user isn't intercepted during their moment of set up. Medium Range.


7) (Locked) Ougi: Naiyatetsuken (Phys Strong) - Forta's ultimate skill - a mastered version of Zantetsuken. Like the previous incarnation - Zantetsuken, after a brief moment of preparation, the user punishes the enemy with a powerful single sword strike. Additionally, after the initial attack, the opponent is immediately struck with a powerful burst of light planted by the initial strike that. The force of this secondary blast can send an opponent flying.

This powerful move requires specialized and very powerful defensive magic in order to even consider defending against. Otherwise, the only way to defend against the skill is to intercept during the brief set up period.

7) (Locked)Anti-Magic Strike (Phys Strong) - The user focused at the foe for an extended time(10 seconds) to pinpoint the spots that the user needs to strike to seal the foe's ability to use magical skill for some time(1 minute). The strike was a swift strike to a point of their opponents, though the strike doesn't hurt much as it just felt like bee sting. The target suddenly find themself unable to use magics.

The skill can spell doom to Magus, but facing foes with Ways other than Magus that would be just a slight annoyance to them or even didn't affect them at all.

Character Sheet

Name: Celia Ravenholm
Age: 18
Gender: F
Appearance: [Show]

Personality: Celia is the type of person where she prefers to do more rather spending time talking. She tends to be quiet most of the time, but she occasionally shows her warmer side.

Weapon

> Garland

An intricate, golden colored magical rod that constantly absorbs Lux from the environment, giving it a distinctive bluish aura when the rod was fully extended. Can be retracted into half of its size to promote easier transportation.


Skillset

Way - Magus


Basic Deck:

> Icicle Explosion [Magic: Strong - Active - Medium Range]

Celia materializes a medium to large shard of ice in front or back of her enemy, before exploding it, turning into a set of deadly icicle projectile that go straight towards to the enemy and travels in high speed. If the target is close enough, it will also receive ice explosion damages.

It has a cooldown of 45 seconds per cast.

> Undine's Breath [Magic: Medium - Active - Close Range]

Celia casts an icy mist which freezes everything the mist comes in contact with. Frozen enemies can be easily destroyed with Physical damages, although the enemy that has been frozen before can break out from their current condition if Celia stops casting. Sustainable skill, though Lux will be constantly consumed more than the initial casting period.

The skill's cooldown period lasts about 30 seconds.

> Frozen Barrier [Defensive - Sustained - Close Range]

Celia casts a personal barrier that protects her from Weak, Medium based Magic projectiles and Weak Physical attacks. It also protects her partially from Medium Physicals and Strong Attacks, though the barrier can be instantly destroyed with Strong Attacks. The barrier can be purged manually, creating a self defense Nova Blast that deals ice damage around her within anything that was close to her.

Its cooldown lasts for 40 seconds.

> Resta [Non-Attack - Active - Close/Medium Range]

A multipurpose healing magic that heals nearly all magnitudes of injury, although severe and critical injuries requires even more Lux and stamina. When fully charged, she can cast a field of healing magic, healing herself as well as her companions. Half charged allows her to heal only herself, or a particular person.

Cooldown is about 35 seconds.


Advanced Deck:

> Frostbite [Magic: Medium - Defensive - Sustained - Close Range]

Celia casts a swirling misty barrier around her within a short radius, freezing whatever the barrier comes into contact with. The barrier is also stronger than the Frozen Barrier, as it is able to resist multiple Strong Attacks. It can also be manually purged to create a freezing field around her that is much further than the Frozen Barrier version. Without purging, the barrier lasts for 30 seconds.

> Hydra Claws [Magic: Medium - Physical: Weak - Close-Medium Range]

Celia will conjure a pair of ice whips which deals considerable damage, especially to lesser beings. Every hit from the ice whips are capable of slowing down enemy movements, and more hits can result in freezing the victims, should they survive the multi-hitting whips. The Claws are strong enough to shatter other enemies frozen by other means, such as Undine's Breath. Effective against large crowd of enemies.

The conjured whip lasts about 25 seconds, and takes 10 seconds to cast.

> Frozen Hex Blast [Magic: Strong - Active - Medium Range]

The final skill within Celia's moveset. She will focus all of her Lux storage into a single opponent, creating a blue magical hex on its body. The hex will grow larger and larger as the time passes by. Once the hex has reached its maturity, it will explode, creating a large ice shard on the opponent's body. The shard will explode afterwards, dealing even more damage. It has a long casting time about 13 seconds, and can be interrupted. As for the hex itself, it also takes 13 seconds to mature.



Name: Celia Ravenholm
Age: 18
Gender: F
Appearance: [Show]

Personality: Celia is still basically the same person as she did from the small town of Twilight, now currently consumed by a Dead Zone. Even in those dire times, she prefers to do more or getting straight to the point, rather than beating around the bushes. Her indifference to other people that she considers not important actually increased as Celia realized the outside world people are more talkative compared in Twilight.

Bio

Just like Fatuita, Celia was inducted into the Magus Order as soon she was graduated from the famous Orpheus Magus College in Junpeter. Unlike Fatuita who has gained fame and popularity due to her consistent efforts in making Magus more accessible to everyone, Celia however, enjoys being under the Magus Council's radar, as she felt that the added publicity was nothing more than a nuisance to her, hampering her efforts to help the world from the Phantoms' threats.

Coming from a small town named Twilight, Celia lived a relatively easy, carefree life until the Great Constantine Dead Zone consumed the idyllic town, not before she and her family left for Junpeter where Celia would further her study as a Magus user. Even then, she has couples of fond childhood and teenage memories coming from Twilight, and most of them notably involves with a girl named Forta. Then, tragedy happened. After all these six years, the guilt still remained with her, although reduced, and it is also as her source of willpower to continue on with her life.

Back at the Magus Order, Celia is just merely a rookie member, despite the Dean of Orpheus Magus College continuously insisted that she was an exceptional learner in Magus. As for the white-haired girl, she was glad that she started out small, even though she has to share an office with another newly inducted, but noisy Magus Order member...

Weapons

> Esca Hermes *New!*

A spellrod for Magus users which harmlessly disguised as a flower brooch decorated with fake ruby gems. When Lux is applied on the brooch, it transforms into a rod with a red flowery design on the top. Celia treats it as a memento to Forta, as it was given to her prior to that 'faithful' day.


Skillset

Way - Magus


Basic Deck:

> Icicle Explosion [Magic: Strong - Range: Long - Airburst Range: Short - Area of Effect: Narrow] *Updated!*

"Icicle Explosion remains the same as ever as it is 6 years ago, but Celia has modified it to suit her role as a pure Magus that deals as much damage as possible within a short timeframe."

Celia materializes an ice shard in front of her, before hurling it to her enemy. The shard explodes upon contact, dealing strong damage if fully charged. The larger the shard is, the slower it moves.

The shard can be manually detonated, causing surprise attacks and distractions. Through her studies in Junpeter, Celia learned the 'Airburst Tactic' from the Magus Instructors. By throwing a large ice shard up high instead of directly to her targets and detonate it in the air, it can dispatch a small group of weak Phantoms, although it is not effective against larger or armored enemies. The airburst version of Icicle Explosion is effective in close ranges, especially when the shard is detonated just above a person's head. Any further and it will less effective, doing nothing more than a distraction.

The charging process is interrupted if Celia gets attacked, and the projectile disappears as a result. If she manually cancels the charging process, it will produce a small to medium sized ice shard, depending on the duration she has charged. These smaller shards will travel faster, but has lesser damage.

It has a cooldown of 45 seconds per cast.

> Shiva's Gust [Magic: Medium - Range: Short - Slow Range: Short/Medium] *New!*

A modified skill from Undine's Breath under the Magus Instructors' recommendation. Celia will cast an icy gust of wind in front of her that knocks away any enemies that was close by, and slowing their movements for 10 seconds, but does not do any damage to the affected enemies.

This skill is one of Celia's efforts to defend herself from melee adversaries should her Impressia or Bataillia partner was occupied with another enemy.

Its cooldown period lasts about 30 seconds.

> Iceblade Shield [Defensive - Magic: Weak] *New!*

Another evolved skill from her previous skill Frozen Barrier. Celia casts an ice shield that absorbs a certain amount of damage before giving out an icy explosion. Stronger skills can set the shield off much faster, or even penetrate through and harm Celia. As for normal physical and magical attacks, the shield will explode after receiving a set amount of hits, or damage, whichever comes first. Even a single, strong normal attack can set off the shield to explode.

The Iceblade Shield will automatically dissipates away after 20 seconds without doing any harm if it does not expended. As for the shield explosion, it will have similar damage to a weak Magic skill. Aside casting for herself, Celia can cast it on to her allies as well, empowering their fighting abilities.

The skill's cooldown lasts for 40 seconds.

> Resta [Non-Attack]

A multipurpose healing magic that heals nearly all magnitudes of injury, although severe and critical injuries requires even more Lux and stamina. When fully charged, she can cast a field of healing magic, healing herself as well as her companions. Half charged allows her to heal only herself, or a particular person.

Cooldown is about 35 seconds.


Advanced Deck:

> Frost Blast [Magic: Strong - Area of Effect: Wide] *New*

"While relearning her Advanced Deck skills under the Magus Instructors' in Junpeter, Celia took up this simple, but effective Magus skill. Despite its simplicity, mastering Frost Blast and bringing its potential to the fullest is no easy feat."

With this skill, Celia will enter into a focused state and channel her Lux, in order to cast it. Then, she will create a powerful blast of frost and ice to a location or target. The main target that receives the Frost Blast will get the most damage and freezing it in the process, while those who are near the epicenter of the icy blast will become frozen as well but receive lesser damage. As for the enemies who are even further apart, they will not receive any damage, instead they will have their movements slowed. It has a wide radius.

[Freezing Range: Short - Blast Range: Medium - Slow Range: Long]


> Iceforge Spirit [Non-Attack, Summoning] *New!* 「Locked」

"Ever since that sparring incident back in Twilight, Celia always wanted to fight on her own, without help or assistance. When the Instructors told her that she could learn how to summon an elemental spirit to fight for her, she finally found the solution. Was it a permanent one? Only time will tell."

Celia summons a towering, ice Elemental Spirit. With its large size and heavy strikes, the Iceforge Spirit can make short work of weak Phantoms and can stun bigger foes. Even so, the Spirit will not last long, as it will disappear after 60 seconds. It is not intelligent as well, and can be easily defeated with smarter, more powerful Phantoms.


> Absolute Zero [Magic: Strong - Area of Effect: Wide] *New!* 「Locked」

"Basically a reworked Frozen Hex Blast, and a more focused version of Frost Blast. The final skill that Celia can reach. Who knows that Ice and Darkness are a good match, eh? At first, she feared that she could not handle the Darkness element as good as Lico did, when the Instructor proposed this advanced skill to her. Regardless, the force of that notorious advanced skill was quite enticing, and she took it up as her last card. Still, every time the Frigid Magustress casts this ultimate, for some reason, she felt some kind of emptiness within her. It is not like Celia lost her memories, or feelings as a human.

Is it that feeling, acts some kind of precursor for her fate in her attempt to protect the world? Or was it, she was slowly losing herself to the Phantoms?"


Just like casting Frost Blast, Celia will enter into a focused state, and starts to channel Lux into the advanced skill. When the spell starts, her chosen target will have a visible pentacle mark inscribed on its body. Once the mark matures, a mini black hole forms on the mark, made with Darkness element, which then sucks nearby enemies toward the initially cursed target, before giving out a powerful freezing explosion which is twice the power of Frost Blast, possibly destroying the first target while dealing severe damage to around its vicinity. The black hole has a short range, but the subsequent blast however, has a wide range.

It has a cast time of 13 seconds, and depending on Celia's health at that moment, she might be fatigued from that advanced skill, unable to cast her Basic Deck skills for that day, or even lose her consciousness, due to extreme amount of Lux that the advanced skill consumes.

[Black Hole's Range: Short - Final Blast: Long]

Weapon:
Warlock Wisdom- A black staff made from pure onyx. It was used in a dark ritual. On top of the staff is an engraving similar to snake with purple eyes

Personality: Calculated and cunning. Xeno is talkative but very much observant too. Not much of a risk taker. Often avoiding long duration battle and flee whenever he feels like defeated.



Skillset

Way - Magus

3) Dark Eye (Magic-Non-attacking) - Analyzing magic. 2 eyes hover around Xeno and analyze enemies data and find weaknesses. Cast at the start of a battle

4) Shadow Prison(Magic-Medium-Close range) - Usage of shadow to bind enemies. Usually Xeno used his own shadow but it doesn't limit to his own, he can use pretty much any shadow within his range.

30 seconds recharge time.



Advanced Skill Set

5) Graviton Impact(Magic-Strong-long range) - Infused Dark Element Magic and manipulation of gravity to create concentrated force.

6) Dark Rain (Magic-Strong) - Magic combination of Water and Darkness. Summon An acidic rain that corrode anything on the battle field for 10 seconds. All the enemy on the battlefield will suffer from corrosion which degrade their battle performance until cured.

She can pick it up, though she is unable to properly wield it because of its massive size and weight. She spends most of her days just polishing it and keeping it clean. Others find it strange how she is attached to such a dangerous looking object for her age.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Lico
Age: 17
Gender: Female

Appearance:

Weapon: Dark Blade- A large blade which her father once wielded that cannot be held easily by anyone besides Lico. It packs a punch, and Lico can easily wield it, but the size and weight of it limits the speed of swinging it. It emits dark purple flames when she uses a skill.

Personality:: She loves to fight and win but detests it when she battles and acquires victory against an opponent she deems weaker than her, so she tends to show some arrogance. She prefers challenges and has a very harsh, invective behavior towards those who are vulnerable, frail, and fear easily. She has developed a more sadistic mindset, so she does not mind killing or torturing anyone as long as it is an opponent who she thinks truly deserves to die and suffer. She is still the loner and boredom-killer she was when she was younger, but she separates herself from others more often due to an incident in her childhood that she might as well have been hold accountable for also. Despite this, she is now found to talk more, whether she has little to no interest or involvement.

Bio: Her past that occurred before she came to Twilight Town in her childhood was a blur. It was because of this past, even though she could barely recall it, that she moved away from her hometown, Halloween Town.

Later, however, she had no choice but to return home because of the Dead Zone that has creep its way into Twilight Town, making its inhabitants flee from it permanently.

As she made her way back to her hometown on a train, she encountered a dark individual who claims them to have a significant past together. Seeing how clueless she was, the individual explains to her briefly about the events that changed her childhood forever, focusing on the day that her parents disappeared. Lico now remembers part of her past. Still much of a blur due to the individual's very brief explanation, but she also remembers why she chose to run away and forget about it: because of how traumatic it was to a girl of her age during the time.

The individual claims he had been watching her since the day of her parents' disappearance, especially her every action in Twilight Town. He told her he witnessed the development of her dark powers through her Dark Blade, very similar to the powers her father possessed when he wielded the blade before her. He even noted to her that if she practiced to harness and develop her dark-attribute abilities, her power could tremendously exceed her father.

This obviously caught Lico's ear, but she had second thoughts due to what happened in the sparring match. The individual notices this and assures her that he will offer his assistance to her in controlling the strength of her power, which is one of his main reasons why he presented himself to her in the train. Lico, of course, had more second thoughts because she barely knew the individual and was uncertain whether she could believe him or not.

Being observant, he tells her that he was actually her father's closest friend before he disappeared, which he claims why he knows Lico so well and why he was much involved during the day of the incident. He has been investigating and gathering up what exactly happened, possibly finding her parents as well in the process, but he needed her help. After much pondering, Lico finally takes up on his offer, to much of the individual's satisfaction.

Starting from her arrival back in her hometown, she underwent constant, severe training under the assistance of the dark individual, who finally told her his name, Ivilis.

Through about 6 straight years of training, she developed her dark-attribute abilities and was able to harness them more. Her health was not drained anymore every time she materializes her Dark Blade (Unless she uses a skill that has to drain some of her health) and is not susceptible to faint anymore. However, the increased darkness in her came into contribution of developing her more sadistic nature.

Her immense strength and dark abilities have quickly spread throughout her hometown and eventually through parts outside of her hometown over the years, making her well-known to the Blade Union, which she does not approve. Her proud guardian and Ivilis might have had something to do with that....Because of this, she has been sent many offers to become a member of the Blade Union, which she accepts, only reason being she had a lot of spare time. She never shows up at meetings or involves herself in their affairs, but she often keeps tabs on their activities in her spare time.

The prologue starts 5 years before the established age of your characters. This is our starting point. Try to avoid having everybody start all over the place - to keep this story focused.

As stated in the RPers united thread - this prologue introduces things as well as serves as the 'weed out chapter'. If you seem to drop posting in this chapter without giving a reason why, then I'll assume you dropped.

Welp, here goes!




I wanted to look at them just one more time. Even after all that's happened, the fact that they were my irreplaceable friends wasn't going to change.

The all looked so worried, so I passed my words to them even as I disappeared, to relive their worries.


"Someday... This will all be set back right. I'm certain of it!"

"I know this because..."

"We've left behind the keys to reach it."


Square Hex 2014 - Presents:

The Legend of Lux




Many years ago, in the World of Alepanashia, there existed a a place known as the Town of Twilight - whose golden hues in the hours before sundown charmed charmed visitors for many years. Here, an art known as 'Swordsmanship' was practiced. Involving a long sharpened piece of metal with a point at it's tip, known as a 'Blade'. The locals handled these tools of meditation in expert ways, repeating the movements of these exercises with pinpoint precision and accuracy.

These 'blades' was never meant to be a weapon. The blade was only a tool of attuning one's mental and physical harmony. Indeed, the time before was a much more different period. A time of different thought - a time of different problems. The peoples of the world had never fallen into conflict with one another. To 'fight'; to 'wage a war' were phrases that where born out of the troubles that came later in history.


This time of Prosperity - the Age of Fairy Tails, could not last forever however. In the wild and untamed far north, the peoples of Alepenashia journeyed to seek new lands, and potentially new people to meet and trade with. What these explorers found in the frigid ice-lands and tundra was worse than they could've possibly imagined. Dark and Malevolent beings - that they dubbed 'Phantoms,' relentlessly attacked the first pioneers without provocation.

The few survivors whom crawled back to civilization inadvertently attracted the Phantoms away from their dens in the frigid north. The dark beings launched an invasion of the whole civilized world. The only thing that stood against the invasion where powerful Mages who utilized the latent Fragments of Light in the world known as 'Lux' for use in 'Magus' - an offensive art that was able to challenge and defeat the Phantoms that attacked their world. But - Mages were few and far between. Despite the valiant efforts of the few bright, dedicated, and powerful Mages who existed, the Phantom presence ultimately took permanent residence in other parts of the world. The efforts of these heroes were not in complete vain, however.

The Phantoms where contained in certain areas after being turned back by the Magus practitioners. The lands that the Phantoms settled into and claimed rotted and decayed. After a century of occupation, these places where reduced from fertile grasslands and snowy mountains into dry and foreboding wastelands, and sharp rocky crags. The incursion of these places called 'Dead Zones' disrupted travel, and split apart the cities of the world. In some cases, whole cities were abandoned due to the presence of these dangerous Dead Zones. At the lest, the people who escaped where safe so long as they remained out side the boundaries of these now forbidden places.

Now - after a century of Rest, the Phantoms have began to grow restless, and and began to venture outside their realms once more. The world now is now somewhat more prepared for this expected second invasion, however. Thanks to the formation of the Organization of Magus practitioners in the world. These men and women have honed the art and craft of Magus throughout the years after the conclusion of the first Phantom Invasions. But, worryingly - Lux, the power behind all Magic, has shown signs of weakening in some places. The fact remains that the Phantoms can still easily overrun any force that opposes them once they attack in full strength.



Despite the encroaching darkness, the matters of the world was not of much concern for our Unknowing heroes. Living in the Town of Twilight, some practicing their way of the Sword, others taking up their skills in magus; lived in peace and security despite living so near the Great Constantine Dead Zone. Sadly, their peaceful days were numbered. Someday soon, their homes would be lost, their way of life shattered, and their ways of peaceful meditation would put them on the front-lines of a conflict 100 years in the making.

This is The Legend of Lux. The tale of a band of heroes who sung one of the Final Chapter of the Age of Fairy Tails. Intertwined with this narrative is none other than the Fabled 'Kingdom Hearts.' The fabled source of All Lux - the Heart of Alpenashia - and the final catalyst that brought about it's ultimate destruction.





[Chapter 0 'The Person You Choose To Be']
[5 Years Ago]

[Forta - Age 12]
[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]


["The Most Important thing You Must Remember is this: "]

["The Blade must not be used against Others."]



A young girl with blue hair swiped for the item. But the one in possession merely turned away, evading the girl's reach.

"Give it back!"

Amongst the stucco colored town streets, there is one big open area that everyone calls: 'The Sand Lot'. This big place is perfect for the kids to play games on days off from school. Events and festivals are usually held there - but otherwise it was just a big plot of land that was perfect to play in.

"Wha-? I'm sorry, I didn't hear you~."


The girl in possession of the important thing - a similarly aged girl with black and white hair, eyed the thing in her hands with interest. It certainly wasn't something she'd ever seen before up close.


"Give it back! My little brother needs that!" The girl pleaded.

"Just gimme a second here. I'm just super intrigued by this flask and all. It's so shiny..."


Forta had to get it back. The fact that the flask was glowing was because it was a Magus Based Potion that only had a limited lifetime. Forta had to take it back home Magus maintaining it wore off and turned the solution back into some strange looking, inert liquid.

Forta had to get it back whatever the cost. Forta knew a thing or two about catching a quick opponent. She learned a thing or two from her parents about how to catch a target - knowledge they themselves learned from the Blade School that they went to. The school that everyone in town went to. She'd be able to grab it... with just the right timing she could.

Of course there was a chance of the girl dropping the flask by incident... but knowing this particular girl, she would probably be 'intrigued' by her Little Brother's Medicine for far longer. Just one moment, and...

"Hya-!"


The girl evaded once again.

"Tsk, Tsk. Forta. Aren't Goody Two-Shoes like you supposed patient? Wait your turn!"

At this point, it started to become apparent that the Black and White girl was actually doing all this to annoy Forta.

"This isn't funny anymore Fatuita! The doctor said I had to get that to my brother before it expires!"

"Well, judging by the stability of this thing I'd say this thing will last another couple hours or so. So what's the problem."

"I don't trust you at all!"


The girl with black and white hair - the little prodigy amongst the children - gave a little smile. She didn't come out very often because she was always studying - as she was apparently adept at being a Magus User. Fatuita was smart, but she also had a bit of a warped sense of humor. Sometimes, it seemed like she did mischievous things for the sake of attracting the adults' attention.

Today was her chance to pick on the one girl all the adults seemed to like. The girl before her - Forta.


"Well if you don't trust me then I'll just have to hold on to this potion until you do, I guess."

"Come on Fatuita, give it back! Fujin is hurting really bad right now!"


Earnest to the very end. Fatuita could say all sorts of things to Forta. About her intelligence, about how much she disliked Forta's Goody Two-Shoes attitude. But really, going that far would probably just make her get into REAL trouble. Indeed, Fatuita knew her own limits. Rather than go that route, why not force the Goody Two-Shoes to do something she knows will get herself in trouble?

"If you want it back... Then why don't you take it from me?"

Fatuita took the extra belt wrapped around her waist, and pulled it out. Revealing it to actually be it's own whip. A whip was one form of Magus Tuner, typically associated with combat. Was Fatuita intending to utilize Magus here?


("Of all the days to run into her... Fujin's in a lot of pain right now.") Forta thought to herself.

The young girl gritted her teeth, and reached behind her to the large wooden key toy she carried around today. It was a toy she used to pretend to 'sword meditation' with, in place of the real 'training sword' she would get when she joins the sword school. At this moment, there was a chance she'd have to use it in order to get her brother's medicine back. Forta wasn't smart enough to play along with Fatuita's words like the others sometimes did. And she couldn't waste anymore time while after leaving her brother in pain.

He depended on getting that medicine - and Forta was trusted to deliver it. There was no way she was going to betray the trust put into her.


The kids in the Sandlot - some of them familiar with these two girls, some not so much - where present and watching over the scene. What set our heroes of light apart from the others that were there that day... was by the choices they chose to make...

The air between the two girls was beginning to look tense. Were the kids going to simply stand by and watch? letting the scene unfold into the confrontation as it seemed to be heading?


[INFORMATION]


Decisions, Decisions: Much of the involvement in Legend of Lux involves the party making decisions as events are presented to them. The scene moves forward based on what actions that the end up taking in response to the 'question' the scene presents them. While others may just be there for fun or to move things forward. Beware of the important choices, as they may shape the challenges you face ahead into terrible beasts or even avoid conflicts in the future altogether.

Not everyone is required to choose to move the story forward. Rather it's more along the lines of 'whoever posts before the RP master makes their next reply'. 'Stacking up' replies isn't a bad thing either though.

For example, if multiple people post their attack on an opponent during a battle, the attacks stack up when the RP master finally gets around to replying. In story mode, you can stack a reply to help reinforce a point - or even potentially overturn a choice that you believe isn't right!

[Vadim Bortsov - Age 15]
[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]

Vadim was taking a break from training. His normal break consisted of taking a walk around town and looking at various things. Sometimes he would buy a snack and eat it while walking. Today, he had a small bag of cookies, baked by his mother. He did not eat them yet though. He would save them for the sandlot.

Out of all the places in town, his favorite one was the sandlot. There were always kids playing there, looking like they were having a fun time. Though he never participated, he enjoyed the vicarious pleasure gleaned from watching them. He thought he would experience the same today, but realized something was wrong.

A blue-haired girl was trying to grab something from the black-and-white haired girl's grasp. Vadim often saw the blue-haired girl around, and knew she was Forta, from the adults' gossip; she was apparently a bright and honest girl. Vadim didn't doubt it; such a kind smile couldn't come from a bad girl. He liked her the most when she was smiling. But now, that face was stained with pain.

He gasped. Before he consciously realized it, he had walked up to the two girls. He blinked rapidly in surprise, panic filling his head.

("Oh nonononononono! Whatamidoingwhatamidoingwhatamidoing!!!!!")

Vadim's face began to turn crimson from embarassment. He made brief eye contact with both girls before looking at the ground. He took out the bag of cookies out of his pocket and presented it with both hands, his head still looking down at the ground.

"U-u-u-um... I-I-I-I-I-I d-d-d-don't..."

Vadim couldn't finish his sentence. He took a deep breath.

"Don't fight!"

Head still facing the ground, he let the cookies drop from his hands and turned around to sprint towards his home... But, he tripped and fell flat on his face. Vadim quickly pushed himself off of the ground, but in his haste, was about to fall yet again. Fortunately, he caught himself this time and successfully got up. Not even brushing off the dust and debris on his body, face, and hair, he sprinted towards his home.

("Oh nonononononono! Whywhywhywhy...!")

His mental admonition would continue for some time...

[Lynette - Age 14]
[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]


A girl with dark blue hair was seen leaning to a tree as she lick her ice cream. This girl was a student in the sword school that often gets in trouble not because she caused mischief. In truth, she usually gets in trouble with her action in maintaining order.

This girl is known as Lynette, the energetic warrior of justice. Of course that title is self proclaimed, but she really is the figure that help the childrens from getting bullied or even stopping childrens from fighting each other.

She was still enjoying the ice cream she had until she heard...

"Don't fight!"

She immediately looked at the source of the voice. She saw a boy running from 2 girls that were about to fight. She recognized one of them as Forta, the girl that the adults seems to like because of her attitude. She also recognized the other as Fatuita, the little prodigy amongst the children with her tendencies to cause mischief.

Seeing that she immediately put the ice cream on her mouth and approached them. Getting closer, she realized that Fatuita was holding what seemed to be a Magus based potion that would expire in some time. She took that fact as the potion is something that Forta really needs. As she gets near them, she immediately took the flask from Fatuita.

Thats enough, that was what Lynette said but it came out as a mumble as she was still having ice cream in her mouth. She then gave Forta the flask and turned to Fatuita. She took out the ice cream in her mouth first.

"Thats not funny at all." Lynette said as she put her hand on her training blade's grip.

[Xeno Night- Age 22]
[The town of Twilight-The Sandlot]

It was a fine day. Xeno walk along the street of Twilight, slowly making his way to the Material Shop, a regular shop where he went for ingredient in making basic potion. The town is crowded with people. Some that he knows of waving at him and of course being as he is, he waved back with a smile. As he turns to a corner, he heard a yell.

"Don't fight!"

Then he saw Vadim dash passed him. Curious Xeno continue his walk and about 20 feet in front of him, he can see a girl holding a flask of magus based potion with 2 more girls near her. They are not far from Xeno. He recognize all the girls there. The one that holding the flask is Forta, The girl with the training blade is Lynette and Fatuita is near her. Xeno wonder, what should he do?

"Maybe I should just let them be"

Then he heard Lynette said "That's not funny at all" as she put her hand on her training blade's grip.

It was an empty threat he thought but still he can't just let the situation escalate. Xeno walk towards Lynette and gently put the tip of his staff on Lynette's hand.

"That's not funny either Lynette-chan" Xeno said as he grin evilly

He turn around to look at Fortuita and Forta, he also glance at the flask in Forta's hand.

"That Magus based potion is about to expire" Xeno said as he let out a sigh. "Better quick Forta-chan"

Xeno remove the tip of his staff from Lynette's hand before turning around and walk away but stop for a brief moment to glance at the girls. He smile a little and continue to walk along the way before making a brief turn into the shop that he plan to go before. Before entering he give the girls a quick look and enter.

[Forta - Age 12]
[The Town of Twilight - the Sandlot]


While the two girls faced off, they were soon approached by one of the boys. Vadim, - a child who usually kept to the sidelines, seemed to be inclined to come out forward today.

Fatuita turned to him.

"What do you want, Twinkle Toes?"

The boy reached into his pockets and held out a bag, like some sort of offering.

"U-u-u-um... I-I-I-I-I-I d-d-d-don't..."

The two girls mutually had difficulty understanding what he was getting at.

"Is there something wrong, Vadim?" Forta asked.

"Don't fight!"

With that, the timid boy had enough. He dropped the small bag and stumbled his way out of the sandlot. presumably running all the way home.

"Huh, really? You getting protected by Twinkle Toes now?" Fatuita said laughing.

Forta began to realize she was forgetting something important. The Blade.... wasn't meant to be used to hurt other people. But still, how was she supposed get the potion back from a person like Fatuita?


...!

"Wait? What the!?"

Fatuita realized the flask that she had in her hand... was gone. Before she realized it, a girl in blue hair was handing the flask back to a similarly surprised Forta.

"Th-thanks?" Forta asked.

After this, Lynette turned to Fatuita, taking out the ice cream in her mouth.

"Thats not funny at all." Said the blue Haired, Self-Proclaimed hero of justice.

"Oh, so it's you. You know, I'd call you by name, but I hear you calling yourself Hero of Justice all the time that I don't even know it. Ah- I remember now. It was: 'Idiot.'"


it was at that moment that an adult magus user arrived. He stayed Lynette's hand, and spoke carrying an evil grin.

"That's not funny either Lynette-chan"

The Mage then turned around, and looked at Forta - taking notice of the flask in her hand.

"That Magus based potion is about to expire - Better quick Forta-chan."

After this, Forta nodded. Relived one of the adults had come by to help.

"Yeah, I will!"

Fatuita's aggressive aura immediately dissipated as soon as she saw Xeno the Mage. She simple wrapped her whip back around her wait, and proceeded to walk away like nothing happened...

That was how that first encounter ended.




It was one of Forta's last memories as a carefree young child. But that simple little encounter did make her remember one thing: - The blade was not a tool to use out of anger. Though not apparent now, it would affect the sword of Swordswoman she would someday come to be...



[The Town of Twilight - the Sandlot]

The children's summer continued to move onward - and like always, the children came to play in the sandlot once more. Their life here in the town of Twilight was markedly peaceful. A much simpler time that many would fondly recall many years afterward...



"....I know it has to be somewhere. Fujin and I didn't go anywhere else on our way to the sandlot. I it has to be somewhere we went through."

Today, Forta was here with her brother. The meek looking boy with dark green hair, standing beside her.

I wasn't every day that Forta's brother was able to come out, he seemed a lot weaker as opposed to the others. But Forta took him out to play with the others on days he was allowed.

However, today they managed to lose something important on the way here.

"Well, we actually took the way through the Walking Tunnels. You guys know the way my sister is. We kind of spent a bit of time going to all sorts of different places in the tunnels on the way here - so it could've ended up in many different places. Could you guys help us out?"

The walking tunnels that ran across all parts of the town allowed for people to reach all sorts of different places without having to navigate Twilight's streets. Before he tram was built, they where the quickest way to get across large parts of town.

With their dim walkways, and secret passages that became lost to time. The tunnels where pretty old - but still well traveled. The tunnels were like an adventure waiting to happen.

Forta hung her head.

"...so it really was my fault then!?"

How were these at the Sandlot today going to answer this request? Did they happen to wonder what the item even was in the first place?

[Celia Ravenholm - Age 13]
[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]


It was a nice, cozy morning, as a bunch of children are thoroughly enjoying themselves playing by the sandlot. However, there is a white haired adolescent girl with a light blue pinafore dress, sitting by the sidelines, quietly reading a book without being noticed. The atmosphere was initially filled with the cry of joy, until a particular voice with a desperate tone stood out.

Celia stopped reading her daily dose of Magus Tales, and looked at the source of the cry. It was Forta and Fatuita, with the latter doing her typical antics on the blue haired girl. But this time, Fatuita was holding a glowing flask, and Celia knows what that flask is meant to do. It was for Forta's sick little brother.

("Good Lord... Just give her the flask already. These medicinal Magus Flasks can expire pretty quick.") She thought, while shaking her head, looking at the event unfolding in front of her.

The situation escalated further when both of the girls drew their weapons. She planned to intervene. Vadim arrived first to dispel the fight, although in his typical clumsy way. Lynette joined in as well, got the flask with a quick sleight of hand, and passed it back to Forta. But it did not end there. She shortly armed herself with her training blade.

("Hey! Oh God, Lynette! Did you forgot what our Elders reminded us about Blades? One does not simply use the Blade against another?! Just leave her be! Forta already got back her Magus flask!")

She screamed internally, looking at the scene in disbelief, displaying her rows of teeth and gesturing her arms. Celia already got up, ready to intervene, but one of the young adults, sporting a short silver hair and a calm demeanor, stepped in, and subsequently disarmed the situation.

("Thank goodness that Night is around here...")

Celia lets out a sigh of relief, and sat down on the wooden bench she was sitting before. With that, the day went on smoothly with Forta rushing back to her house...


The Next Day...



[The Town of Twilight - the Sandlot]

Once again, the familiar ensemble of children gathered here, playing around, oblivious by the dangers posed from the Great Constantine Dead Zone. These days were so nice, so nice that Celia would remember forever despite what was happened, earlier on...

Back to the Sandlot, Celia continued reading the book named Magus Tales, an assortment of famous stories depicting Maguses in triumphing evil and protecting the nations, with mighty fight scenes and all out battle using Lux.

"....I know it has to be somewhere. Fujin and I didn't go anywhere else on our way to the sandlot. It has to be somewhere we went through."

Celia, who was wearing a light blue long sleeved sweater and a white pleated skirt, stopped reading and looked at Forta. Beside her, there was a boy with a dark green hair, presumably Forta's little brother, Fujin. He looked weaker than Celia initially thought.

"Well, we actually took the way through the Walking Tunnels. You guys know the way my sister is. We kind of spent a bit of time going to all sorts of different places in the tunnels on the way here - so it could've ended up in many different places. Could you guys help us out?"

After hearing what Fujin said, Celia sighed in response.

("Another trouble. Good Lord...")

She placed a clover leaf on the last page that she has stopped reading, acting as a bookmark, before closing the book. Celia approached both Forta and Fujin.

"...so it really was my fault then!?"

While carrying the book with a thick dark brown cover, Celia asked them, with a neutral expression.

"What did you lost at the Walking Tunnels?"

[Lico- Age 11]

[The Town of Twilight- The Sandlot]

There stands a girl in an alleyway with pink hair, tied up in short pig-tails with black ribbons. This peculiar little girl’s name was Lico: she is not an original resident of Twilight Town. Until she came to Twilight Town about one month ago, she has lived in another area when her parents were still around. Due to being a “foreigner”, she had the most difficulties fitting in with the rest of the children: things worked differently around here than where she once lived. However, she didn’t mind. She wasn’t shy, but she preferred to be alone and to be not involved with conversations that wasted her breath.

She is leaning her back against a wall with her arms crossed as she witnesses on what looks like a scuffle between two random girls she did not know. They both looked to be about her age. One girl had blue hair; the other girl had black and white hair. From where she was, it seemed like the blue haired girl was currently being overwhelmed by the other girl. That object she was trying to get back must be that important to her, seeing how desperate her expression was.

”Hmph..bullies. They are nothing but helpless cowards who refuse to deal with their own personal problems, and instead attempt to take out their problems on others who don’t deserve it.” From how it looks right now, the object’s effect will wear off soon, unless the blue-haired girl steps up her game to retrieve her object back.

”I should probably do something. Cowards don’t deserve to win.” She began to leave her place to walk to the girls, until she sees the blue-haired girl pulling out a large toy key. Oh? Lico backs up again to where she was in the alleyway to see what will happen next. ”What an interesting shaped weapon. Let’s see how she will deal with this now."

”Don’t Fight!” She suddenly heard from the brown haired boy who walked up to the two girls. He then dropped his bag and ran off as she watches with a sweatdrop. *Sigh* How disappointing… I worry for the people who live in this place..” She sees the blue-haired girl lowering her toy key. ”How even more disappointing.”

A dark-blue haired teenage girl then came up and took the flask from the black and white haired girl just like that. The girl gets back her item, which relieved her, although she was surprised she felt relieved for a stranger. The teenager looked so full of herself. Yes, she did get back the item, but Lico had a feeling the teenager was going to screw up somehow. An adult mage then came up to drive the bully away. The girl leaves shortly afterwards with her item. Lico makes a smile and decides to return back to her house for the day to make sure the blade didn’t pick up dust while she was gone.

[Later on in the Summer]
[The Town of Twilight- The Sandlot]
Lico continued to come back throughout the summer to the Sandlot to spend a certain amount of her time each day, hopefully to come across something interesting in her current dull life. She saw the same blue-haired girl every day from a distance. However, today, as she was sitting on one of the benches out in the open for once. She sees from a small distance the blue-haired girl coming up to the kids.

”Well, we actually took the way through the Walking Tunnels. You guys know the way my sister is. We kind of spent a bit of time going to all sorts of different places in the tunnels on the way here- so it could’ve ended up in many places. Could you guys help us out?”

”…so it really was my fault then!?”

Lico narrows her eyes at the girl’s statement. She questions herself on what the lost item might be. She thinks for a moment. This could be interesting... She decided to go up to the two and reply: ”Well, I don't know what use I will be, since I don’t exactly know my way around here, but I’ll help you out. I have nothing else better to do.”

[Roland - Age 13]
[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]


Roland was just walking towards the sandlot as he had nothing to do.Sure there were other places that he could have went but somehow, he just liked the sandlot. After all, most of his friend that he knew was there. When he reached there was a commotion. He went to take a look. He arrived to see a blue-haired girl was trying to grab something from the black-and-white haired girl's grasp. Roland knew both of them. The blue haired girl was Forta, a good friend of his and the black and white haired girl was Fatuita. Roland took a good look to see Fatuita holding a flask that was glowing. Roland immediately knew that it was a medicine for Forta's sick brother. Fatuita, as always, was just doing it to annoy Forta. Actually the 2 of them had always been bickering over something. However, ot had never escalated to a fight before. Roland was about to stop them. As he reached for his sword he remembered what his father had said, "The Blade must not be used against Others" Roland then smacked his head and said,I know that but how do you expect me to stop a fight without a weapon to defend myself?"Just as Roland was having a whirlwind of conflict in his mind, a boy much older than him with something in both hands stepped up in between the 2 girls.

"U-u-u-um... I-I-I-I-I-I d-d-d-don't..."Both girl looked at him puzzled, having trouble trying to understand what he was trying to say.Roland looked at him and said,"I'm not sure if he is just full of bravery or just plain stupidity."Is there something wrong, Vadim?"Forta asked."Don't fight!" However, directly after Vadim said that, he dropped a small bag that was in his hand and ran off. Huh, really? You getting protected by Twinkle Toes now?" Fatuita said laughing.

Afterwards a dark blue haired girl with a ice cream in her mouth went up, took the flask form Fatuita and gave it to Forta."Th-thanks?" Forta asked.The dark blue haird girl then turned back to Fatuita and said"Thats not funny at all." as she put her hand on her training blade's grip. A man then palced the tip of his staff on the dark blue haired girl's hand and said,"That's not funny either Lynette-chan"Roland took a step back as he saw the man and mouthed 'Xeno the mage...'. Xeno looked at the 2 girl then at the flask in Forta hand and said,"That Magus based potion is about to expire. Better quick Forta-chan" "Yeah, I will!" Forta said after nodding as she went off. Roland looked as Forta ran back home. "I can't help but fell bad that I didn't help Forta as a friend. But that's settled either way. I guess I'll go home too."Roland said as he walked off.


LATER IN THE SUMMER
[The Town of Twilight- The Sandlot]


Like almost everyday other day, the children would come to the sandlot to play. Of course Roland, being a children himself was not going to be left on of the fun.Today, Forta brought her brother along. Forta's brother wasn't able to come out everyday. But whenever he could, Forta would bring him out to play when he was allowed to go out

"....I know it has to be somewhere. Fujin and I didn't go anywhere else on our way to the sandlot. I it has to be somewhere we went through." Forta said to the group around her.

"Well, we actually took the way through the Walking Tunnels. You guys know the way my sister is. We kind of spent a bit of time going to all sorts of different places in the tunnels on the way here - so it could've ended up in many different places. Could you guys help us out?" Forta's brother asked the group.

"Wow, that will take quite sometime. After all, the tunnel is quite long." Roland thought.

"...so it really was my fault then!?" Forta said as she hung her head.

"Ah!Don't worry!We'll find it somehow!" Roland said, trying to cheer Forta up.

"What did you lost at the Walking Tunnels?"Celia, a girl the same age as Roland, asked them with a neutral expression, also carrying a book.

”Well, I don't know what use I will be, since I don’t exactly know my way around here, but I’ll help you out. I have nothing else better to do.”A girl with pink hair, tied up in short pig-tails said as she came up to the group.

All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration.We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively,there is no such thing as death,life is only a dream, and we are an imagination of ourselves.

[Forta - Age 12]
[The Town of Twilight - the Sandlot]


Luckily enough, some of the kids where happy to help out with finding Fujin's lost item.

"Ah! Don't worry! We'll find it somehow!" Said Roland - the young boy wearing his signature white clothing. He was reassuring Forta who was convinced Fujin losing the item was her own fault.

"Sometimes I wonder if I'm the one taking care of you Forta..." Fujin said with an exasperated expression.


"What did you lost at the Walking Tunnels?" Said a girl with white hair. It was none other than Celia, walking over with one of the storybooks she always liked to carry around.

"Oh, Good afternoon Celia." Fujin said. "I actually lost one of my Magus instruction books in the Tunnel walkways. I was hoping to try out a new spell while I was out here but I ended up losing it." He explained.

"Hey, you know, Celia and Roland can do some basic Lux illumination spells right? They'll make our search a lot easier!" Forta Exclaimed.


”Well, I don't know what use I will be, since I don’t exactly know my way around here, but I’ll help you out. I have nothing else better to do.”

To their surprise, a girl with pink hair offered up her help. Forta didn't know her name because she always seemed to distance herself from the others. So it was pleasant surprise to see her come forward today.

"Everyone who can help out is welcome! I'm Forta, by the way!"


Afterwards, with a couple of other helpers, the group made off to the Tunnel Walkways...





[The Town of Twilight - Market Street Tunnel Entrance]

"Huh...? What's going on?"

The group finally arrived to the nearest tunnel entrance. Only to find that it's sliding collapsible gate was closed shut.

"This is really strange Forta. The walkways aren't supposed be closed at this hour. Why would they close it now?"


Forta walked over to the crooked old gate. It was defiantly closed.

"Maybe we should just look for it tomorrow Forta."

"But we already got all of this help today Fujin. Who knows what might happen to your book if we leave it there all night."

Fujin was reluctant to try challenging his sister.

"Uhm... what do you guys think?"


The gates to the Tunnel-ways where Made out of Wood, and had been around for a long time. Some of them - like this one - where on the brink of breaking. A quick thwack would easily let the children in.

How should they proceed with the gate locked like this? Where they going to leave Fujin's book to stay there for the night?"

[Vadim Bortsov - Age 15]
[The Town of Twilight - Vadim's Home]

When Vadim returned home on the day of that event, sobbing from embarrassment, his older brother asked what was wrong. After hearing what transpired, his brother laughed for a few moments, then rubbed Vadim's head with his hand.

"How nice! I didn't know! That's nothing to be ashamed about! You did well, Vaddie!"

Vadim sniffled.

"R-r-really?"

His brother frowned.

"Have I ever lied to you before, Vadim?"
"N-n-n-no?"

The frown was replaced with a grin.

"Hey, what's with that tone? Geez... The answer is 'no', Vaddie! Hey, let's get that chocolate milkshake you like from that store! And some cookies to replace the ones you left! Heck, let's get whatever you like! All on me, of course!"

Vadim's eyes sparkled with delight, but were then turned towards the ground. He fiddled with his fingers.

"B-b-b-but dad..."

His brother let out a snort and rubbed Vadim's head again.

"No sweat. You earned it, and I won't let him say otherwise. When I'm here, I won't let anything bad happen to you, Vaddie. I'm stronger than him!"
"R-r-really?"
"Really. Just look at these muscles!"

His brother struck a comical pose, which caused Vadim to laugh.

"Now, let's get you cleaned up and we'll get going!"
"Mmm!"


[The Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]

After that event, Vadim's brother encouraged (or more appropriately, forced) Vadim to play with his contemporaries. Sometimes, he would even watch in secret to make sure Vadim didn't run away. Though Vadim's shyness was frustrating to watch at times, his brother accepted the fact that changes take time. His brother was now no longer in the Town of Twilight, having left the town for his work. Though Vadim was still shy, he was able to participate in games, no longer a mere bystander.

Vadim fidgeted with his staff while looking down at the ground. He was hoping to say something reassuring to Forta, but lacked the courage to do so. When Roland reassured Forta, Vadim was awed.

("Roland is younger than me, but he always has the strength to speak what he wants to say... I wish I was him.")

The cool-headed Celia walked up to Forta and Fujin and asked them a question. Vadim took a quick glance at her and looked at the ground again. Vadim thought she was prettier than Forta, but something about her demeanor made him feel uneasy; he was scared to say or do stuff in front of her.

He was briefly depressed that only Celia and Roland received praise from Forta. Though it was true that he didn't learn those spells and as such it was normal to not be addressed, he wished he learned them just for that brief moment.

His moping was set aside as a pink-haired girl offered her assistance. Like he did with Celia, he took a glance at her and looked down at the ground. He muttered a "hello", that was too soft for anyone to hear.


[The Town of Twilight - Market Street Tunnel Entrance]

When Fujin asked for the group's thoughts on the matter, Vadim, to his surprise, found himself to be the first one responding.

"I-I-I don't think it's good. They might have closed it for d-d-dangerous things."

Vadim glanced at Forta with an apologetic look on his face, then looked at the ground.

"L-l-let's go back and play tag? I-i-i-if the book's gone then I can maybe buy a new one? I have some allowance saved..."

[Lynette - Age 14]
[Town of Twilight - The Sandlot]


The situation between Fatuita and Lynette were getting tense instantly.

"Oh? I'm an idiot? Heh, I get that alot from the likes of you." Lynette grips her training blade even harder. She was about to do something she'll regret later on but thankfully, Xeno put a stop to it.

"That's not funny either Lynette-chan" Said by Xeno as he gently tap his staff to Lynette's hand. He immediately suggested Forta to hurry take the medicine to the one who needs it. Forta quickly run back to her house. As for Fatuita, she returned her whip back to her waist and walk away like nothing happened.

"Hey, do that again on my watch and I'll definitely punish you." Lynette gave a warning to Fatuita as she walked away. Lynette then noticed her ice cream slowly melting and left some noticeable stains on the ground.

"Ah!" She quickly put the ice cream back to her mouth.

Later in the Summer

. . .


[The Town of Twilight - Market Street Tunnel Entrance]

Lynette along with some other kids decided to help Forta and her brother to retrieve something that she lost in the tunnels.

But the tunnels were strangely closed, it was not the time for it to close. Fujin, Forta's brother decided that maybe they should try it tomorrow, but Forta insisted as they already received that much help. The gate itself seemed to be on the brink of breaking down. Vadim voiced his thoughts on the matter, he think that maybe there's something dangerous inside. Though Lynette somehow doubted that.

"Maybe they didn't close the other gates? The tunnels are connected with each other right? Maybe we could go in from the other entrance."

If Lynette was right, the tunnels should connect every entrance with another. But to use that method would be really time consuming and maybe get them trapped inside when it's time for the tunnels to close. Then again the option to break the gates doesn't seem to be a wise choice.

[Celia Ravenholm - Age 13]
[The Town of Twilight - the Sandlot]


Fujin greeted Celia and explained his plight, saying that he lost one of his Magus instruction books at the Walking Tunnels. She finds it a bit dubious.

("How do you actually lose a book in the tunnels? Never mind, I guess anything can happen after all.")

Then, a happy Forta spoke afterwards.

"Hey, you know, Celia and Roland can do some basic Lux illumination spells right? They'll make our search a lot easier!"

The white-haired girl immediately raised her eyebrows and hands. Celia was taken aback as she did not made the decision to find the Magus book with them.

"W-wait, I just---"

Her pleads did not came to attention as another, younger girl with pink twintail stated that she wanted to help as well. Forta once again happily accepts her offer of assistance.

"Everyone who can help out is welcome! I'm Forta, by the way!"

Celia simply sighed as more and more are jumping in, finding herself with no opportunity to speak out her thoughts...


[The Town of Twilight - Market Street Tunnel Entrance]

Everyone arrived at the nearest Walking Tunnel's entrance, but unfortunately, it was closed way earlier than its stipulated time, as Fujin pointed out afterwards. Forta did a double check on the sliding collapsible gate, and it was definitely closed shut.

"Maybe we should just look for it tomorrow Forta."

Her sickly younger brother suggested. As for Forta however...

"But we already got all of this help today Fujin. Who knows what might happen to your book if we leave it there all night."

The following words coming out his older sister was enough to shake his will. Instead of directly arguing his sister's idea, Fujin asked for everyone's thoughts.

"Uhm... what do you guys think?"

Celia initially broke into a frown, and crossed her arms, while letting the others to speak first. She knew that breaking into the tunnels will bring them trouble, or at least, herself into trouble if her father finds out what she did. However, with Forta putting so many hope on Celia that it is quite cruel to suggest cancelling the whole plan, leaving her in a bind.

Surprisingly, the timid Vadim was the first one to spoke.

"I-I-I don't think it's good. They might have closed it for d-d-dangerous things."

Despite his stammering tone, Vadim made a point. There might be some kind of reason, perhaps a collapsed tunnel that happened earlier on when Fujin realized that he lost his book. He even invited Forta to play tag and promised to replace the book for a new one with his allowance. Upon hearing this, Celia's lips curved slightly, indicated that she smiled, but it was not obvious enough for everyone to see.

Then, it is Lynette's turn to speak. Usually, Celia does not have a high hope on whatever she says, though.

"Maybe they didn't close the other gates? The tunnels are connected with each other right? Maybe we could go in from the other entrance."

For the first time ever, the self proclaimed Justice Girl actually said something surprising, as the suggestion was quite rational, unlike her last act with Fatuita. Upon hearing that, Celia was surprised.

("Wow. Now that's something I didn't expect. A logical suggestion.")

With that, Celia decided to speak out her thoughts.

"Lynette and Vadim is right. I also think that breaking into the tunnels is a bad idea. My father will kill me if he finds out."

She sighed afterwards, crossing her arms.

"I understand that a Magus Instruction Book is quite expensive. If you insist, I'm with Lynette's suggestion on finding another way in."
