Welcome to Banished Quest!
You take the role of a young mage labeled a criminal by his people and cast out into the wider world. In the last thread you resolved to travel to Licae and had a chat with a friend. Just a friend.

It is currently the 10th of Svarthi, in the year 936 NH.

Character Sheet:
Current Missions:


Ask Page:

Using names or trips in this quest is heavily discouraged. While it is impossible for me to prevent you from doing so, I ask that you not. I will also not count any votes made while using names or trips.

Your more reasonable half wins out. {It's probably for the best, Chryssa. As much as I value your friendship it would be unwise to take things any further. Hopefully you'll find someone eventually.}

Her thoughts still and her response is calm. {Indeed, though it seems unlikely considering my current place of residence. Get home safely, I would be loathe to see what becomes of our group without its leader.}

With that the connection severs and you're left standing alone, the only sound shattering the stillness of the morning the sound of your guar uprooting a stand of grass. Your thoughts are interrupted by the sound of the woven grass mat rustling as it's pulled aside, Aylin poking her head out of the ruined tower and glances up at you, confusion writ large across her face. “So where are we going?”

You glance over your shoulder, shrugging. “Licae, and from there Anthus most likely. I've nothing better to do.” Raising your voice, you call into the tower. “Regulus! We're leaving, mount up.”

The construct comes stomping out a moment later and wanders over to his guar without a word, pulling himself onto its back. Aylin eyes him suspiciously the whole way, while you make your way over to your own guar and pull yourself into the saddle. You're about to tell Aylin to pick a guar and climb on, but as you're turning to face her she grabs onto your arm and hauls herself with surprising ease onto the back of your guar, wrapping her arms around your waist to keep herself steady. You dig your heels into your guar's flanks and it sets off at a brisk jog, it isn't long before the beast's heavy footfalls are ringing out across the cobblestone road. Worryingly, you spot a few tendrils of smoke rising in the distance, from where you think Anthus ought to be.

Guys just to continue with a point.
The land idea.
WHile great in theory, the shah could simply say nope.

So I think it would be better to just build up a reasonable amount of land. Buy a lot then, from the wealth there. Build our own city. With our wealth + connections we could easily build a town paying for earth and metal GM's to build a palace/city around it. over a couple weeks.
Make it a half way point between the aleamodian city states and el armin.

As the day wears on you reach towards your chest. You undo the straps at your shoulder and let your chest piece slump forward, affording you some access to the pendant hidden beneath your clothes. You grab hold of the heavy, palm sized ruby where it hangs from its delicate chain and begin to channel vys into it. Tendrils of visible energy wrap around your hand as you push more and more power into the crystal, warping light around it as the ruby begins to glow brightly with the reserves of your vys.

After pumping perhaps half of your vys into the crystal you release it, tucking it underneath your clothing. You rebind your armor, a warmth spreading through your torso and into your limbs. It's a strange feeling, it reminds you of being drunk. That sense of intoxicated warmth as your blood thins and your heart races. Reaching into your cloak you extract the handle of your Shockwave Sword and leech its reserves carefully, at a slower pace. Once you feel that you're back to full power you release the handle and let the blade fall into your cloak.

That done you turn your attention to Regulus. “We're going to be riding for quite some time. Why don't you tell us a tale about Old Rhynia? Something light, preferably. No sense spoiling the mood so early in the journey.”

Regulus stares at you in silence for what seems an eternity before finally his alien, two-toned voice rings out across the plains. “I have a store regarding my creation that I believe may fit your very loose definition of 'light', if you would be willing to listen.”

You gesture elaborately, swinging one arm towards him with a flourish of your wrist. “By all means, regale us Regulus. We've nothing better to do, after all.”

Once more silence reigns for an awkward stretch before Regulus begins speaking. “I was created by a young woman. She was hailed as a prodigy. She could not feed herself. She could neither dress or clean herself. However, when it came to the field of enchanting she was peerless.

She was swiftly recruited by the Rhynian Empire and given an unlimited supply of resources to pursue her research.”

“I, as an individual, was created when she was many years older. Nearing her sixtieth year as I recall, and I recall everything without error. I was to be her greatest work, the model which she finally declared complete. The model that she showed to her overseers and declared perfect.” He'd pause for only a moment before continuing. “But I was not perfect. I was deemed too willful by her overseers and a new revision was ordered. The Third Edition, Fourteenth Revision of the Regulus personality was limited in a number of ways which I am not, and ultimately it was Fourteen who was placed into service, while I was relegated to the role of a personal assistant for Mother.”

Aylin interrupts. “This doesn't seem particularly light. In fact, this subject matter seems quite heavy.” You must agree, this isn't exactly what you were expecting. It is interesting, but not what you were expecting.

Regulus buzzes in annoyance. “Allow me to finish, I assure you that the ending to this tale is a happy one.” After ensuring that neither you nor Aylin was planning to interrupt, Regulus continued. “As I was saying, I became Mother's assistant in all things. I cooked and I cleaned and I aided in research whenever I was able. Our supervisors, the Dux and his underlings, interrupted frequently but we were largely able to ignore them. During this period Rhynia was experiencing hardships. We had lost the Northern plains to a resurgent Dwoveth Jarldom and the Hiacians were pushing into Provencia. Our research base in the mountains was threatened by foreign invaders but the shitslinging sand monkeys-” Wooah, you were not expecting that kind of obscenity from Regulus. “-Were unable to breach the gates. My Mother had enchanted them, so of course they were impenetrable”

Regulus buzzes oddly, it's high pitched and warbling. Almost like some sort of distorted laugh. “The invasion force was eventually repulsed and the Rhynians regained our research station but my Mother had fallen ill, and was not long for this world. She intended that I take over her research but the Dux was displeased by this prospect and instead ordered me put into storage. I went quietly, for I knew that allowing myself to be put in storage would allow me to live for the forseeable future, and it was a statistical certainty that I would eventually one day awaken. Now I am here today, traveling with two lesser peoples. Is it not a happy tale?”

You cough, turning your attention towards the road. “It's quite the story alright. I think you may want to readjust your definition of a 'light tale'. Typically when one remarks that they wish to hear something light, they mean that they wish to hear something comical.”

Regulus stares at you for a time. “Was that not comical? I found it to be quite funny.” His warped voice responds.

You reach into your cloak and extract the heavy metallic codex which has served you so well as a meditative aid since you bought it. Pulling open the book you press your hand against the stiff surface of the vellum, channeling vys into the pages. Almost immediately the ink begins to swirl upwards, twisting itself into the form of a six armed, approximately seven faced masculine figure. In its hand it wields a wickedly curved sword, which it slices through the air. In its wake a golden rift is open, which the figure swiftly melts into.

You're not really sure what to make of it, to be honest. This has never happened before when you channeled vys into the book. Regardless, the pages begin to flip themselves at a rapid pace as you and your two companions watch in mystified silence. Even Regulus seems impressed. Finally the page stop flipping and the ink once more begins to flow off the page, forming itself into a depiction of a man in a meditative pose, a golden ball sitting in his chest. Iron wraps itself around the figure, words etched in bright orange copper scrawling themselves across the rotating disk.

The text is a commentary on the nature of self. The self, as the text explains, is strength. However, the self is tainted. The self must be purified if one wishes to truly master Metal magic. As one purifies ore by holding it within the heat of a flame. It is important that one do not hold the self within the flame too long lest they lose their sense of self and become like Those Who Came Before.” You note with some interest that 'those who came before' is indeed a proper noun.

Soma really fucked up this time, he tried to make us go into a distant war zone for the inquest reason of killing some faggot so Mik could waifu Chrys, while El-Amin is in danger of being razed by dragons and our son is alone.
It was just not worth the risk and effort, and since they could not free her up, players decided that they would just give up on Chrys completely instead.
I still think she could be re-seduced though. We just have to fix her sanity.

As the text completes its first full circle around the central figure it starts to wipe out the text which came before it, replacing it. It's sort of hard to follow and your eyes begin to ache, but you manage it. This next passage seems to relate to ways to annihilate the self, as far as you can tell. It suggest eroding one's soul until nothing except an ember is left, reducing yourself to a bare wisp of your true self so that you might recover what is valuable and discard what is not.

You're not sure that sounds like a good idea, but you suppose it's not the worst idea you've ever heard. To you, it almost seems like something you'd perform for a Grandmaster meditation but you suppose you are working towards expertise in Metal right now. It's not entirely far fetched.

The book slams itself closed with a weighty thud and Regulus regards you passively. He begins to buzz, but before he can speak Aylin practically shouts into the early morning air. “That was SO COOL! Do you get to read books like that all the time? That was amazing! Reading is sooo boring but I would read all the time if it was all colorful and swirly and it moved and-”

Regulus cuts her off. “Indeed, that is quite a feat of enchanting. It would require the ink itself to have been inscribed with runes whilst still in solid form and then mixed with pure water generated from a runic array. The pages themselves would then need to likewise be enchanted with the ink itself before the text and decoration is applied over the enchantments.”

Huh, the more you know.

The rest of the trip is fairly peaceful and you reach Licae by the time the sun is just beginning to set. You'd guess it's about two or so in the afternoon. Riding into town you find that the streets are practically thronged by crowds of eager adventurers, a massive pit opened in the distance where you think the entrance to the Rhynian ruins ought to be. The inn which you stayed in so long ago has burgeoned into a massive, sprawling construction with four stories and six outbuildings, dominating the center of tone. You hear the voices of actors reciting an old Rhynian play carrying from the theater on the opposite side of town, even over the din of commerce.

You note that the early stages of a wall are underway, stone walls with a metal core. Just like in El-Amin, curiously enough. You wonder if that will become the fashion in fortification.

You navigate your guar through the dense crowds of carts, pedestrians, and shouting merchants hawking their wares. Aylin clings more tightly to you, burring her head shyly into your back. You glance back at her briefly, but assume that she's simply not used to crowds. Chrys was much the same when you first met her, though she handled it quite a bit better than this. In a larger setting too.

You pull up on your reins as you near a guard leaning against a long spear, a bored look on his bearded face. Calling down to him in Rhynian, you speak loudly and slowly. After all, you're not sure what language he's a native speaker of. “Have you seen any refugees pass through here? Humans, from Khmedi. They were wearing ragged clothes, slightly singed.”

He raises an eyebrow before responding in rough Rhynian. “Seen them I have, they run through last night. Not stop even for meal they did. To Anthus, I hear. Perhaps Chiron in the north. Say dragons come.”

You sigh, nodding your head. Perhaps Aylin's mother remained behind? You'll check the inn, at least. Ask the innkeep if they've seen a panicked woman by herself recently, you suppose. You bow as best you can to the guard from your saddle and then dig your heels into the beast's flanks, spurring it into an easy walk as you navigate the flow of people. Eventually you reach the inn, and move to tie your reins to a post. Before you're able Regulus grabs them gently from your hands, speaking in his strange voice. “I will keep watch of the animals, take the girl and seek her mother. I wish you luck.”


>> No.39843858

No we're going to have to put our dick inside her, Anonym ous.

>> No.39843877

You stare at him a moment before nodding. You think you can trust him. Why would he screw you over now? Lifting Aylin with surprising ease from the saddle you set her down on the ground. Immediately she clings to your forearm with the sort of desperation born only from fear. Her eyes are thrown wide, glancing between all of the various and manifold attendents, adventurers, servants, nobleman, and villagers who seem to frequent this establishment.

As you step inside you find the inn packed to the metaphorical gills, every single table full of opportunist, thieves, and cheats. They drink, they talk, they argue. The inn truly is the best source of information on the road, if you can tolerate its occupants. As you begin to navigate your way towards the bartop, where the inn keeper is polishing a glass with a dirty rag, a man shouts out from across the bar.

“YOU! I knew I'd see you again, you dirty camel-fucker!” He shoves himself from his chair, the fine wooden furniture clattering to the inn's floor loudly. “You have done me a disservice which must be corrected!”

The bar falls deathly silent as people move to make room for you and your accuser. He's a young man, perhaps around your own age. A human. He wears a fine black shirt and leather vambraces styled with gold filigree, some manner of tight leather pauldrons garbing his shoulders. None of it seems particularly protective, but his clothes are indeed fine. He's got thick black hair cut to about shoulder length, and a quick burst of nature magic reveals him to have a vys pool far too large for him to be untrained.

You stare at him uncomprehendingly. His name is just right there on the tip of your tongue, but it's just not coming to you. “I'm sorry, who are you again? I seem to make a lot of enemies and increasingly I find myself unable to keep track of their names.”


>> No.39843901

Your jab earns a round of nervous laughter from the patrons of the bar, even as the man you seem to have offended in some way fumes. “Maximillien, scion of the House Klossner! One of the most powerful noblemen in the Norther Marches! You faced me to earn your Master's Robes when you were obviously overqualified and you ruined my reputation as a Vatis!”

You shrug your shoulders, utterly uncaring. “Hey, you win some you lose some. Anyway, I'm kind of in the middle of-”

A ball of flame flies across the bar, which you swat away with a flick of your wrist. It goes soaring off to your left, nearly impacting with a bystander before fizzling out. Seems this man is disinclined towards conversation.

I've lost a lot of strength though. Feels shitty. These days I'm only pushing 195 bench, 315 squat, and 135 clean n' jerk. That's absolute max, single rep. Used to be I could do eight reps no problem, back in my prime. I've also fucked my back up real bad because I was taught improper form by my high school fooseball coaches. Ah well.

I can only hope there are many of those people.

I am so jelly of your stronk Irish potato muscles. Like, peanut butter and jelly. Weak South-Eastern Asian rice body only gets me sets of 140lb 8 reps. I can run real fast though, so I got that going for me.

>> No.39844711

Mildly, but I don't really get worried. I breezed into my SATs hungover from the night before with not a care in the world. I hadn't even opened a book to study since my expulsion from high school.

I'm pure strength, I've got no endurance. My usual workout looks like 3-4 sets on bench stating at 135, doing two sets, and then either a last or second to last set a 155. Then I do leg and arm days. I've lately been replacing leg day with core day, working on them showing muscles.

Have you ever worried that you might be a sociopath?

>> No.39844809

Yeah, but ultimately I don't think it matters. I'm sociable and I have no urge to kill people. I feel genuine emotion even if I do so to a lesser degree than my peers.

You might want to have some one who hasn't read your quest to help you out on the book, just in case you write things assuming people already know it when they don't.

Funny enough America is a place where sociopaths thrive and rewards them for it.
I remember reading a study saying that the top earners in wall street would be considered sociopaths.

>> No.39844853

Most sociopaths don't. And most people aren't afraid of sociopaths for murdering people. It's how being emotionally detached from humanity makes sociopaths able to manipulate and do terrible things to people, without feeling strong feelings of remorse that makes people afraid of sociopaths.

Fun fact: I was thinking about joining the navy about two years ago. I applied and everything, even took a test and shit to determine my aptitudes and intelligence. They said (and this was a recruiter, so I mean, take everything with a grain of salt. Slimy little bastards) that I was highly suited for active combat and that they'd probably stick me in a sniper role.

Indeed I do, I find it endlessly amusing

I gotta admit I'm sorta emotionally detached. I've found that I often treated my exes as problems to be solved rather than people who's company I ought to enjoy. I try to fix people. Probably not healthy, but eh.

Yeah yeah, Fortune 500 CEOs I think.

Probably more emotionally stable than me.
I'm the guy who clicks with every one, but at the same times isn't really your friend.
So my social life hangs around my environment and the second i leave you lose contact with me.

>> No.39845009

Holy crap boss. You're like, really weirdly similar to me. I started college at 15, currently am double majoring in Political Science and Economics, and am seriously considering joining the Navy right after I get my degree. Only my emotional and social problems are because of my severe daddy issues.

Full disclosure: most of the probing, 300 character asks you get about how you feel on things and your outlook on aspects of life are from me. I kinda always suspected you at least had sociopathic tendencies, and was trying to figure out if you really were one.

>> No.39845043

I maintain that I'm not a full blown sociopath but yeah, I probably have sociopathic tendencies. I attribute it to moving around so much, I've never lived in one places more than two years since the age I was 9 years old. Gotta learn to separate yourself when you live as essentially itinerant.

Secondary full disclosure: I ask if I've done good a lot because I'm unable to accept or comprehend positive feedback from anyone but very specific people. Just want to say thanks for being one of them and for being cool about it. Don't want to sound like a faggot, but it seriously makes my entire week when you tell me I did a good job.
