>FurReality was initially founded as a group of cosplayers who enjoyed dressing up as natural animals and having sex with them, as well as drawing such things. They advocated the belief of letting anyone be who ever they want to, which attracted Naveen's interests. She commandeered the group, using their slogan to attract artists and actors of all kinds. They currently control the majority of the entertainment industry in Neotis.

It seems the crowd from yesterday has vanished without a trace, so I let myself into the Sorcerer's Guildhall.

There are 2 doors here, each with 2 doors inset into the doors. I see a binding circle, with what looks like an air elemental bound to it. The room's only decorations are the Sorcerer's logo on each side, and on the far end.
No. 57445 ID: f4963f

Ask the air elemental what it's doing here. If these things can talk, anyway. Ask how long it's been here, and what it knows about the place.

An 'outsider's perspective might be useful. And I'm sorta curious.

The nameplate on his desk reads "Dr. Cornelius Vox."

"I was mostly wondering about the guild's political affiliations."

He chuckles. "Ah, a young politician, are we? Many kids these days seem to be genuinely interested in such matters these days. Strange times, eh heheh. Strange times."

"...Right. Well, I was wondering about your groups' political agenda. What sort of policies do you support?"

"Well, the guild's main goal is to make everyone a member. Magic shouldn't be cloistered for just a select few. We're willing to teach anyone who wants to know anything about magic! In addition, we perform magical research here, which mostly consists of finding new ways to deal with mana backlash. Politically, we mostly try to keep to ourselves, but the Church of Life are very close allies of ours. We share many, ah... common interests."

"Since I'm self taught, I have a few questions about magic..."

"Certainly." Dr. Vox replies. "I'd be quite happy to answer any and all questions you have."

"Is magic innate?"

"Magic is essentially life force, dear, so anyone with a pulse can do it. It just takes a bit of knowledge to work it properly. This comes easier to some than it does to, ah, others." He glances at the large portrait to my right.

"Can you learn several kinds? What sorts of magic have been found so far?"

"You certainly can! In fact, anyone who is capable of casting each kind of magic is called an Archmagus. The known schools of magic are Abjury, Conjury, Divination, Evocation, Necromancy, Psionics, and Transmutation. Each school varies greatly in how they are used. We only, ah, have, um. One archmagus." He glances once more at the portrait.

"Who teaches each school?"

"Well, except for Conjury and Necromancy, we have dozens of teachers available for each school of magic! Almost everyone has an aptitude for one of the schools, you see. Archmagus Kisaki's specialization is Evocation, for instance. Mine is Abjury. Anyone who has passed a competency test is considered capable of teaching that school of magic. There are 3 such tests per school, which vary by difficulty. As you might expect, you can only teach someone who is, ah, lower level than you. Like in those RPG things. Archmagus Kisaki is, ah, the only one to have passed at least level 1 of each test."

Hm. They don't have a lot of conjury specialists, I note. That puts us in a unique position, given your talent for conjury, Cora.

Ask Mr. Vox what sort of relationship the Guild has with the current administration. Rastin seems a bit oppressive, how do they manage to thrive?

Also, how do they get along with FurReality?

No. 57794 ID: 34e41d

Ask about fixing the eye and what mana backlash is (though if i had to guess, i'd say your blind eye suffered it).

Regardless of politics i think you should learn some defensive magic for starters, then learn the others. I wonder if Transmutation could improve your summons.
No. 57795 ID: 895b3e

adding to this,

Why don't they have very many Conjurers? Limited materials or is it just really that hard?
No. 57801 ID: e3f578

I assume conjuring teachers are rare because it is a morally debatable magic like Necromancy. You can conjure up anything, even demons or Rudy fucking Mann. Lonely housewife mages would conjure up the man of their dreams, and I doubt Coralina knows if its possible to bear a summons child or not.

Vox doesn't seem like the person to talk to about politics much. He knows a lot more about magic. So, I'll focus on questions about magic for now.

>What was that bit about mana backlash?
"Mana backlash is the phenomenon experienced when you try to work magic beyond your means, and it unravels. Mana backlash varies greatly by school. For instance, Psionics produces mana backlash whenever you use it for anything over 20% or so of what you're capable of, and the mana backlash ranges from a simple headache to completely blacking out. On the other end of things, Evocation's mana backlashes occur when you lose control of the spell, and usually end with explosions. Most of our time and effort is spent trying to find new methods of reducing and predicting mana backlash."

>Why don't you have many conjurers?
"There are many different reasons. Mainly, most people don't have an aptitude for it. It takes a very unique type of person to prefer conjury over abjury or evocation. The three schools have many similarites. In addition, its one of the more difficult schools. People who started conjury years ago still have trouble making someone the size of a person. Its an overly difficult school, and the backlash is particularly harsh. People who fail at it tend to become... blind... ah. Um. Er. Your eye... are you a conjurer, bychance?"
No. 57816 ID: 7eda8b

"Yes. I don't suppose there's any way to fix this?"
No. 57818 ID: f4963f

Yeah. Actually, I was hoping you might know something about that. I'm not expecting there to be a way to unseal the eye, but if we had a way to restore my depth perception, that would be great. How much do you know about sealed eyes?

He seems a bit forgetful, you already said that. From what he says it seems they might not have much to teach you.
No. 57823 ID: fc854e

"Yes. You can see why it interests me. So, there's no known way to cure the backlash, then?"

"That's fine, really. It burned out 6 years ago, I'll live. I was wondering if there was some way to just, yanno. Restore my depth perception?"

"...I suppose if you learned Transmutation, you could transmute yourself a temporary eye. However, there, uh, currently, um. Isn't any, ah, safe way to do permanent transmutations."

Alright. This is all very good to know. Thank Mr Vox for his helpfulness. <3

Ask him who we should direct political sorts of questions towards. Even if he can just give us an email that doesn't spit back form letters, we'd appreciate it.
No. 57834 ID: fc854e

Well, that does seem useful. Inquire about our options there. Also inquire about Vox' own school of magic. We should probably also see about getting tested in their system to see where we stand.

"Tell me more about Abjury. I'd love to hear about it." I don't even have to lie about that. I've been wanting to know more about magic for 6 years, and now I have all this info at my fingertips... yay.

"Ah, of course! Abjury is also known as Rune Binding magic. Abjury's main drawback is that it takes a long time to set up, and can be easily disrupted. However, it draws in magical energy latent in the atmosphere, with only a small boost from the caster himself to get it started. As a result, there is very little mana backlash from abjury magic. Its heavily favored by Arcanitech, since its the only permanent form of magic, discounting some transmutations. We mostly use abjury for reinforcing things and setting up protective wards. It also features heavily in the set up for the magical tests.

Abjury is the most open ended school of magic by far, but is also considered to be, ah, er. Boring. If you make even the slightest mistake, the abjury will simply fail to work. There is a science to abjury." He smirks here. "Archmagus Kisaki hates abjury."

That sounds suspiciously like my conjuration circles. I guess those must be a form of abjury. Would you look at that, I already know a bit of it. Neat. "How about Transmutation?"

"Transmutation magic is one of the more dangerous schools. Transmutation involves rearranging what is already there. Its used to heal injury, tear things apart, pull things together, or shape one thing into something entirely different. We don't get a lot of transmuters. More than Necromancers or Conjurers, easily, but still not a lot. The transcendants highly value Transmutation magic, as their name partially implies."

"Extremely so. Necromancy magic involves manipulation of the soul. Whenever you do the mildest necromancy magic, lives are on the line if you mess it up. Its dangerous, its immoral, and its unnecessary... in my esteemed opinion."

"I see... What's the mana backlash for that?"

"You age. Considerably and instantly. It might be a few years, it might be a few centuries. I've seen men ground to dust by a Necromancy backlash. If I had my way it'd be outlawed. But, ah. You, ah, er, didn't hear me say that."

"So what do you think about the archmage? Kisaki, right?"

"Yes, Archmage Kisaki." He shoots an icy glare at the painting. "She is the most talented sorceress the guild has ever seen. That is all I have to say on the matter."

So since abjury is a permanent magic, could we say use abjury binding runes to force a transmutation to become permanent?

"...That is a terrifying idea. As an Abjury magus with a level 1 in Transmutation, I would have to respectfully tell you not to even attempt that. Nothing good comes of forcing a transmutation beyond its limits. You would not WANT a transmutation that could never go away. That's just... no. No. Perish the thought."

Sure, you can have a look at the portrait. I assume that's Archmagus Kisaki. She's actually quite pretty. It feels weird saying that about a goblin.

"...Sorry. Um, better question then. Can abjury be used against mana backlash?"

"Indeed it can! However, we've only perfected the method for preventing Evocation backlash. We can reduce most other types of backlashes, however. The main problem with this is that it means you need to set up the abjury in advance of the spell you need to cast, and much of magic's usefulness comes from its spontaneity."

>Joke a bit. He seems nice.
He certainly does.

"If you botch a divination job badly enough, do you see something you absolutely didn't want to see?"

"Usually you just see something incorrect. Its hard to tell when you botch a divination unless you only partially botch it. Then it gets really incongruous and strange and you know you screwed up something."

"The level 3 test is the same as the level 2 test, except you take both at once. In other words, you have to perform the same list of advanced conjurations while inside the heightened dampening circle. You MIGHT be able to do it, but I am uncertain."

The level 2 Test.

Power: I can barely conjure in the circle, but its enough. Its like I'm back at the beginning of my studies again.

Finesse: I tanked the Technology section. The handgun I made fired, but was quite inaccurate and was a very simplistic mechanism to conjure anyway. However, for the Composition, Duration, and Creatures section, I passed with flying colors. I could keep the conjurations going well over the required 5 minutes, I was able to use well over a dozen materials in a single summon, and I was able to conjure any creature asked of me.

Thankfully, you're allowed to fail up to two portions and still pass. So, success!

I guess onward to test 3 then.

That second part. I understand the basic mechanics behind a pistol, but I've never really... yanno. CARED. I can summon a pikachu that makes actual lightning, why would I want a gun?

...I'm bad at machines, shut up.

>Level 3 Test.
I once again tank the tech section, with another pitiful gun. This one explodes. I guess the dampening field lowers the capability of magic in addition to the quantity.

I pass the other three sections once more, but have some trouble with the Duration section this time around. Composition and Creatures hold no candle, however.

I am now a certified level 3 conjurer.

You are awesome. I recommend expressing that you have at least some level of interest in the position, but would like to learn more about what that would entail and about the rest of the factions in the city before you make a final decision.

You don't know what obligations you will face, whose feathers you might ruffle, and what ideological enemies you will make if you accept the offer. Vox seems a reasonable person, and putting it in these terms might make you look better.

>What does the job entail?
Well, if I accept the position, then I'd need to spend some time at the guild hall here every day [Only one free "time slot" to visit places per day, instead of the 2 you currently have]. I'd also get my own place, and I'd be in the Teaching economic class - 20 luxury tickets a week. I'd also be allying myself with the Sorcerer's Guild. If they have any enemy groups, I might not be able to consider them as options anymore.

Do I accept anyway?

No. 60077 ID: 099247

I really don't see why we wouldn't. The Bleeding Hearts dislike the Mages, and anyone who has an issue with reality bending shit (which isn't a lot of people) will distrust us.

Hmm... lets do this, we put the offer on hold, then go around to the people we know might be difficult, inform them that we might be taking a job in the guild and say that we have plans to change things for the better.

No. 60095 ID: 904da4

Well, as far as we know, the two primary groups against the Sorceror's Guild are the Experientialists and the Bleeding Hearts, neither of which you seemed to be considering seriously before. And they're not overtly hostile to magic-users, they just strongly disagree with the lack of responsibility regarding who gets taught magic.

If your genuinely worried about it, you could always ask how long the offer is good for.
No. 60096 ID: cd08c0

Let's not accept. It's not like the option will be closed to us later, right? After all, you're the best conjurer around, apparently.
Right now we still need to get a feel for the city, the factions, and how we're going to go about this whole 'take over the city' thing. We haven't even decided who we're going to go to for backing, and if we end up devoting half our time to the Sorcerer's, that kindof shoehorns us in with them, doesn't it?
All our needs are met already. We don't really need extra luxuries. If we decide to join up with the Sorcerers, we'll take the job then, and enjoy the benefits and prestige.
But for now, we really need the extra time.
No. 60099 ID: d2ec7d

You should tell him to provide information for the technology test. Schematics and such. Not everybody knows how a gun works, and that doesn't have much to do with conjuring.

Though it does point out the fact that knowing physics and chemistry will allow you to get more from the same effort.

I wonder if you can summon a critical mass of plutonium.

It looks like this one is Project Titan, and the other is Project Angelic. Kinda... lamely named.

Project Angelic appears to be having problems with internal bleeding, muscular development of the wings, and some problem about bones. Possibly weight.

Project Titan seems to be growing too fast - He looks like his chest was ripped open halfway through the development. The progress notes say "results too unstable." Maybe they're scrapping the project?

What's wrong with them? They clearly show no concern for public safety in favor of their own profit. They are exploiting the mild lawlessness of this state for their own gain. They are clearly being overly secretive if 2 short sentences are all they want the public to know. I bet those people in the tubes (YES THESE WERE ONCE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!) weren't exactly willing subjects to these experiments. Probably took too many of some pills similar to the very pills you took today and were no longer in control of their own bodies. Maybe they didn't read the fine print on one of the forms like the one you are so willing to sign and when their family members came looking for them, there was nothing they could do since the company had "proof" this was what they wanted.

Even better is if it decides to spread to other areas, including the brain (a good portion of which is fat!)

I'm of the opinion that leaving her eye sealed for a while would be good, from a teaching standpoint. Nothing would tell students to be careful with their magic more than Coralina's one-eyed gaze. It's a very important lesson that hasn't been getting taught lately at the guild, apparently.

So, if we do find a way to restore her eye, I say we hold off on using it until it is absolutely neccisary. Having a safety-minded instructor would make the public think very highly of us, judging by that angry mob from before.

... though.

HEY, real quick, when we got the list of factions, Vresch's notes for the Church of Life, Men's Club, and Neotis Weaponry Association said to "Be Careful". While we've got him here, ask him why.
Dependant on the answer, it may be better to meet those people out in the open. Or even not meet them at all.

Cora: "Oh! Yes. About that ascension thing. The Sorcerer's Guild has offered me a teaching position for Conjury."

Vresch: "Did you accept?"

Cora: "I told them I would give them an answer on Monday. I was wondering how you felt about taking the job."

Vresch: "It is certainly a very lucrative position, but I don't imagine a humble schoolteacher would make a believable overlord. Unless you have a plan to push you into the higher ranks of the Guild, it does not seem a practical choice."

Cora: "Are you saying I shouldn't take it?"

Vresch: "At this point in the game, I'm willing to let you have free reign over yourself. If it gets down to the wire and you are making no headway, I will intervene as I see fit. At any point, I will freely give you help with anything you ask of me, but I would rather see you succeed on your own, if possible."

Cora: "How strong is Hope when she's possessing people?"

Vresch: "Not particularly. She has a fair amount of magical skill, but she loses her bond to the crystal when possessing someone. So, she has about as much magical might as whatever she possesses. If she gets her hands on an experienced spellcaster, this would be dangerous, but on most things, no."

Cora: "How about a two inch tall summon?"

Vresch: "...I'm not sure I entirely like where this conversation is going. But, summons have little magical power in and of themselves. Most of their magical power holds them together, so she would not have much to work with, no."

>We have an appointment with Arcanitech Thursday, but I've completely forgotten what today is.
Today is Tuesday. We'll do Arcanitech in the thread after the next one. Man this quest is going to be long. We're on Day 3 of 30.

>Where are we going next?
Well, we still have the Bleeding Hearts, the Church of Life, the Experientialists, the Men's Club, the NWA, Nihilism Tech, the Retirement Association, The Secluded, and Technotics. I feel like I've done so little so far. But, the plan is to visit the Secluded and Nihilism Tech tomorrow, unless you guys have other ideas.

Alright, do you guys have more questions for the big V, or should I go see Hope now?
No. 92447 ID: c42be6

How much influence will we have? What even are Vresch's plans for improving the world, especially once he has us in place?
No. 92451 ID: e31b4e

Ask Vresch for his opinion on a new plan.

Step 1: Accept a position in the guild.
Step 2: Use your field of expertise that nobody else could master to gain supporters in the guild.
Step 3: Use newly found connections in the media to get out a message about freedom of information, learning and creation. Mix it up with reminders that you also need to act responsibly with the stuff you learn and not be a dumb fuck who sets his own house on fire.
Step 4: Get more involved in guld politics as well as intercompany and party politics to set up an anti Rastin power base.
Step 5: Take over after Rastin and find a way to do an epic troll on him.

After you get Vresch input on the plan I suggest we find hope and play some mario kart with her. She only has one hand so we should win easily.

Remember that Vresch is a damn demon, no matter what else is true about him. We shouldn't ever tell him any more than we have to. Go see Hope.
No. 92642 ID: c42be6

This sounds like a very good plan. And getting Vresch's support will be useful, so we should keep him informed of anything that we doing that isn't related to trying to get rid of him.

Don't forget that we still have the leader of the Sorc Guild to deal with. Who, if the professor we talked to is to be believed, is a big gobbo bitch.

Let's look at some of the other institutions first, and then lay out a roadmap to power.

>Time limit?
That's when we're scheduled to take power from Rastin. It would be a pretty big event, and will probably require a lot of coordination on Vresch's part. That's why there's a deadline.

If we need to, we can probably talk to Vresch about pushing that back, but let's not unless it's clear we need to. So far, we're only a few days in.

>This plan
Cora: "...and when that's all done, I'll hopefully have some sort of loving power base to form an anti-Rastin agenda with, and stage some kind of take over or another. Do you think that'd work?"

Vresch: "Hmm. Yes, that is feasible. Playing to your strengths is always a sound strategy. I will be attentive to news concerning the Sorcerer's Guild in any way, and keep you informed, so you can best accelerate your way through the ranks."

Cora: "...Oh, thank you. I didn't even think of that. This is only a temporary plan, in case nothing better presents itself."

Vresch: "Of course. We are not very far in, so there is plenty of flexibility available in planning."

Uh... huh. On the upside, it looks like she isn't angry at me anymore. She still seems pretty sullen though.

If I got Vresch down here he could probably hook it up so she could play too... or I could try summoning a body for her to possess so she could play. Or we could try doing something else entirely. Orb?

Summon a body that looks like hers, but with no magical ability.

Then hug her. :3c

Offer to ask Vresch to hook something up first THEN you try offering to summon a body for her.

Would allowing her a direct connection to the outside world via the controller be a security risk? If not just do that.

Summon a body for her.

> She seems pretty sullen.
Of course she's sullen. She's stuck inside the crystal, probably bored and lonely as hell.

Even if she has no magic, giving her something full size, or even child size, means she can walk around, open doors, and search for some way to restore her full power and/or burn the world. There's a reason the Rastin clones she possessed were trashed, right?
Even if we're trying be friends, you can't forget that she's potentially very dangerous.

So instead, let's make her very tiny. Like, we're talking pocket size.
It'll prevent her from being able to pick up or interact with most objects, opening doors, and generally making her as helpless as possible without our direct interaction. Which means it will be much easier to watch her, and help prevent Vresch from flipping out. Most importantly, it'll be easier to squash her if she gets uppity, even without summoning, and might even teach her some humility.
Rastin might even be amused.

I suggest anywhere between two inches tall... to maybe about a foot, dependent on how careful we want to be, and whether it's important or not that she be capable of being hugged and/or holding a controller in her own hands.
Essentially; cricket size, or plushie size?
No. 97107 ID: 048b92

If we'll summon her a body, just give her normal size, and be sure to not let her leave the room.

No. 97112 ID: e2d500

Guys, if she summons a body, she won't see anything.

>Can we dispel MiniHope?
No, but Hope could dispel MiniHope. Basically, she formed a new mindlink with it. Except I don't see the eye rune thing, so I'm... not completely certain how it works.

Regardless, the body has barely enough magical power to hold itself together. If she tried any magic, it would obliterate MiniHope. So we should be pretty okay.

So that's all for tonight. Hope and I played Mario Kart for a couple hours. She eventually figured out that, since she was made of magic, she could reshape herself, and she replace her wings with another couple arms. After that, she got good enough to actually play decently.

We both still lost miserably to the CPU though.

For tomorrow: What should I do with MiniHope? Take her with me or something? And should I wear casual or business outfit tomorrow? We're currently planning on seeing The Secluded and Nihilism Tech. Unless people have other ideas.

The point is I don't want to wear the same outfit 3 days in a row.

Normally I'd be all over the business suit, but considering who we are checking out, let's go casual.

Let's take mini-hope, it'll cheer her up at least.

good job at following the 3 day rule btw.

Still think we should check out the NWA at some point.
Also I vote casual too.

I'd say wear the casual clothes. Wearing a tuxy suit while claiming to be a "reporter" might set off alarm bells.
