This is a Mage's Guild RP.


Summary: Quintessa makes a bunch of younger students help her run a scavenger hunt put together by the Mage's Guild. Raphaline, Lanlan, and Odharnos compete but only one will be named Master of Magical Mysteries. Magik, Mahri, Karasu, and Dyraxdiin spectate while Jaelyn watches from the shadows.

Winner: Raphaline


Town Well

Just south of the Xalious Village rests the town's well. At it's bottom is crisp and pure water, filtered through the rocky mountains by the many hydromancers who come to study at the Mage's Guild. It is the sole water source for the entire village as well as those within the Tower, and as such is protected by a plethora of arcane defences. Many of the villagers spend their days here, discussing various aspects of their lives, as well as keeping an eye on the multitude of visitors who frequent this town; more so now that the foul smell which once came from it has been expelled by the mages. It is whispered that beneath it lays deep tunnels which link up to other wells in Hollow, and perhaps even the Underdark, but no villagers are brave enough to learn the truth, content enough they are knowing they're well protected. The northern road leads back into town, to the east is the entrance to a grand park. South is the magnificent Xalious Tree, restored once again to its former splendour. And to the west is an ancient guard tower which houses the few guards who ensure peace is kept in the village.



Quintessa said, "Who left the rats?"

Quintessa looked at Magik.

Quintessa said, "Rats are not a part of this contest."

Magik picked up 2000 dead rat.

Magik said, "Well pardon me."

Quintessa said to Magik, "Thank you."

Karasu appeared from the north.

Raphaline dances around and other bard stuff.

A small stage has been set here, enough for one person to stand on. Dark curtains shroud the area backstage as a few students Quintessa has intimidated into helping her stand around casting various spells. Some of them cast dancing lights to light up the stage while others use presiditation to cause them to strobe in multicolored patterns. Another pair of students cause obscuring mist to swirl around the floor of the stage and pour off like a waterfall to intermingle with the crowd. After a moment, the sound of a drumroll emits from somewhere backstage and a student rushes up to draw the curtains, reveling Quintessa standing behind a large, cast iron cauldron, wearing a very simple, nondescript, black robe fitted with a hood. A toothy grin can be seen from under the hood as mismatched eyes examine the crowd. "Ladies, gentlemen, and all those that lie in betwixt, I welcome you to the Celestial Celebration's Magical Mysteries Scavenger Hunt." She glares at some of the students planted in the audience and they begin to cheer loudly. "I Madam Quintessa, shall be your host for tonight. As Arh-Nuk's chosen I have been burdened with the responsibility of casting the closing ceremony spell. But fear not! The lot of you are going to help me. Before me is a cauldron which I can use to make a powerful potion, but I don't have all the ingredients. Here in a moment I'll give each of you a piece of paper with the first clue on it. Bring me the correct item to learn the next clue and so on. The first person to being me all of the objects I need will earn a very special prize."

Quintessa said, "Everyone who is participating say 'aye'."

Raphaline is here among the crowd, listening to the hustle and bustle when everyone seems to stop and turn towards the stage. Proud of her friend for everything she has accomplished, she offers a small smile as she listens to her. Items? Well this will be interesting for sure.

Raphaline said "Aye!"

Odhranos said, "Aye!"

Lanlan closes up his tent and walks over to the crowd forming to participate in the scavenger hunt. "I can't believe the crowd my attraction created," he says to a random person. "There were so many people in line and I made sooo much money, but this is more important. I have to support my guildmates!" He appears forlorn for a moment and adds, "I was performing such great magic in there. I hope I'm not too tired to win!" Actually, now that he's become so familiar with the magical rune-inscribed gem he uses, it doesn't take much for him to turn someone into a critter for a few minutes.

Magik quietly claps at his student's presentation and the use of the even younger mages. He manages a small smirk on his face as he folds his arms infront of him, watching everyone rush to the small stage.

Mahri appeared from the north.

Magik pushes Mahri towards the small stand. He does a terrible job imitating Mahri's voice as he yells, "Aye!"

Quintessa said, "Here in a moment a note will magically appear in your pocket. Spooky! So keep an eye out for it, you don't want to give the other contestants an advantage."

Mahri glares at Magik and steps back, arms folded. "I am not."

Lanlan rolls his eyes and nudges the person he was annoying. "Madam Quintessa. Clearly becoming Arh-Nuk's chosen has gone to her head! Haha, right?" Lanlan's jealous.

Odhranos stands near the back of the crowd quietly with a half smile on his face. It had been some time since he had shown his face around these parts, but at the very least it seemed the Guild had been thriving in the interim. Drumming one hand idly on the ornate gold cage slung at his side, he spotted a familiar drow amongst the crowd, resolving to reacquaint himself with Lanlan before the event was out.

Magik chuckles at Mahri, offering her a wink.

Quintessa said, "Check your pockets!"

Quintessa shouted, "Race over!"

Quintessa said, "Everyone come to the stage please!"

Raphaline dances towards the stage.

Odhranos leans heavily on his staff. He's getting to old for this sort of thing

Raphaline offers to help Odhranos towards the stage. "Care to lean on a pretty lady?"

Odhranos can't help but grin and takes Raphaline up on her offer.

Lanlan isn't wearing a hat, so he takes someone else's hat and throws it on the ground. They get mad but he gives them a look DARING them to say something about it.

Raphaline looked at Odhranos.

Odhranos offers Lanlan a blue cheese in this trying time

Quintessa takes Raphaline's items and puts them in the cauldron as the students she bullied start casting dancing lights again. "Arh'Nuk, these three have all rushed to the four corners of the earth for you, but only one can be named the Master of Magical Mysteries!" She gestures upward to the moons and the caldron begins to billow purple smoke. "Arh'Nuk! Bless the winner, Raphaline, with your glorious medallion!" After a moment she reaches inside the brew and pulls out the bard's prize. "Congratulations!" She looks to Lanlan and Odhranos. "There will be prizes for you two as well!" She gives a nod to the students and they roll a goldfish tank out where they struggle to catch and bag them. "Because everyone is a winner when I'm around!"

Quintessa gave 1 Master of Mysteries Medallion to Raphaline.

Quintessa gave 1 bag of goldfish to Lanlan.

Quintessa gave 1 bag of goldfish to Odhranos.

Lanlan takes the blue cheese in his gloved hand, pounds it to mush, and then pulls his arm back getting ready to throw it in Odhranos' face. Then he stops, "Odhranos?"

Raphaline helps the terramancer up to the stage and once he is steady, she makes her way up to the stage to accept her prize from Quinn. With a brilliant grin she says, "Thank you. I knew one of these days my knowledge of all the shops in this land might come in handy."

Magik golf claps once again, "Yeah alright."

Odhranos smiles warmly at the drow with his handful of cheese and waves rather plainly. "Glad to see you haven't changed a bit." He smirks in a good-natured manner

Odhranos joins in the applause.

Mahri golf claps.

Quintessa said, "This closes the Magical Mysteries Scavenger Hunt! Any complaints must be directed to Magister Dyraxdiin at the Mage's Tower."

Magik applaudes once again, but with a bit more oomph behind it. His hands are quickly engulfed in his familiar black flames. He groans out of frustration, throwing his hands to his sides to try and shake off the flames while offering his apprentice some praise, "Very well done, Quintessa. Well executed!"

Raphaline accepts the medal graciously before calling out, "Drinks on me at the Dancing Desertrier?"

Quintessa gave 1 bag of goldfish to Magik.

Magik said to Quintessa, "I shall name them with each letter of your name."

Mahri said to Magik, "Shut up. You're such a brown noser."

Magik said to Mahri, "Shut. Up."

Mahri said to Magik, "Make me, blood sucker."

Lanlan takes both his cheese covered gloves off and throws them on the ground before pulling a new pair out of his pocket. "I'm going to complain," he says to Odhranos, "I saw Quintessa and Raphaline dancing at the ball a few days ago. Clearly this game was rigged." Then he appraises his goldfish of shame menacingly, deliberating on what awful fate it might soon endure.

Magik said to Mahri, "Oi. Not lately. Can't keep it down anymore."

Odhranos examines his goldfish critically, already picturing the terrible time he's going to have trying to remember to feed it. "Well, I won't try dissuade you. But at the very least wait til you have the excuse of being drunk before going to complain."

Jaelyn really hadn’t planned on sticking around in the shadows, but found it vaguely amusing to watch them scatter like rats for attention. The bark of the tree bit into bare shoulders as she tensed, then flicked a fingernail idly, “Who knew lackeys were so easily obtained.” She really had just wanted to test the well, she’d been hearing so much about it. Nostrils flared briefly with each flash, a dull ache taking up residence behind her eyes. Shifting, she mumbled, “The hell is this anyway?”

Raphaline holds up a couple of bottles of different liquors and says, "Who wants one?"

Raphaline dropped 5 brandy.

Raphaline dropped 5 dwarven ale.

Raphaline dropped 5 whiskey.

Raphaline dropped 5 red wine.

Mahri has a fleeting sense of concern for her old friend, Magik. Then, she rolls her eyes because vampires don't get sick, do they? "C'mon. Your type don't get sick." Mahri was ready to go, not even the offer of alcohol would keep her around. There were too many bodies here and she was feeling pressed in, despite the openness of the area. Walking past the tree, she slides a glance Jaelyn's way. "A scavanger hunt."

Jaelyn : If she was bothered about being noticed, she didn’t show it. Instead, a slight smirk curled up one corner of her mouth, “For what exactly?” Looking back between the two that had been talking she guessed, “Cough syrup?”

Quintessa picked up 1 brandy.

Quintessa drank 1 brandy.

Quintessa should be cleaning up but she makes her underlings do it instead while she drinks brandy instead. "Hmm, another successful mission." She reflects on all her careful planning while backstage and takes pride in herself.

Raphaline drank 1 dwarvish meade.

Odhranos pauses to pilfer a bottle of red which he brandishes in Lanlan's direction. "What say we head back to the tower and see what became of my broom-closet of an office while I was gone? You can fill me in on what I've missed, and I can get very drunk while you do so."

Odhranos picked up 1 red wine.

Lanlan is about to agree before realization hits him, "...You have an office?" Lanlan obviously shouldn't care. He practically has a castle in the underdark. But this preferential treatment was wrong! It's the principle! "Yes, show me your office," he says grumpily.

Raphaline is definitely drinking some of that dwarven liquor--strong, and delicious.

Odhranos laughs and offers the drow the bottle as they head off. "See, office is a pretty strong word. Glorified cupboard would be more appropriate. I had to get one of the students to teleport the desk through the doorway..." The grey robed mage rambled on as they strode off towards the Mage's tower.
