It Lies Underground (Closed)

Recommended Posts

Percival    766

The larger pieces fit together roughly, though there were certainly gaps between the cracks, and few of the smaller pieces between the cracks. The resulting creation was a thulecite flat disk, slightly unstable from a few hundred years of crumbling underground.

 

What caught the worm's attention, though, was that it had a carving on it; the same carving on the chest, a mirror image, though not perfect, as it is missing pieces. What was also interesting about the carving was that the bumps that were on the chest were dips in the thulecite carving, depressions on the chest thrown into relief on the stone disk.

The disk fit almost perfectly in the mirror carving, albeit crumbling, and the disk rotated a half turn. The top of the chest popped open in a way almost like mocking how hard it was to open it.

(Take away the shapeshifting please. You can take off the telekinesis too if you want to. But the shapeshifting feels like a bigger problem to me at least. Or, add a weakness or two or maybe even three.)

(Okay I will)

Weaknesses: cannot throw items with telekinesis, only pick them up. Items picked up with telekinesis must be light enough for Aisha to pick up with only one of her arms. Can use telepathy in a 10 meter radius. If she uses one ability more than once in one day, she shall be put in a coma for anything between an hour and 6 hours.

(Is that good?)

Inside the chest appeared to be empty, filled with no more than the dust that time brings.

 

At least, that's what it looked like. There was so much dust that it wasn't apparent that there were two objects in the chest; a leather tube with a golden cap, and a cube of an unknown material buried in the grime.

"Hmm what is this?" Thynik takes the cube up and weighs it in his palm. "Interesting" He mutters.

(That's fine. I'll update the OP soon but not yet. You're accepted basically.)

Oh great, its useless. He doesn't notice the cube or the other item yet because he is lost in thought about what to do now.

Serenei observed all of this unfolding with interest. He was rather bored, and decided to pull out a dead rabbit that he had stored in his satchel earlier. He also pulled out the firefly, and, nimbly detaching the abdomen, put it aside. He then took a scalpel and gouged out one of the eyes of the rabbit, and clumsily poured some formaldehyde to keep it fresh. He then put the abdomen of the firefly into the rabbit's eye , and put a stitch keeping the abdomen inside the socket. This was where he got stuck. He opened his journal and tried to decipher the scribbles that were written in an unknown hand.  He suddenly realized that he could decipher some of the words...The page read: For summoning...summoning...summoning...creaaturesss...... Before Serenei realized what was happening he blacked out.

 

 

Serenei's pupils dilated.

(I have no clue how to help...)

far away in another tunnel of the cave is light.

Bolts blue horns are charged up, maybe lasting 1 or 2 days.

The Volt Goat asked himself where he should go, but after his stomach grumbled he decided to look for food.

The cube was surprisingly light compared to its size, which resembled the size of a cantaloupe. There were several small disks put into sockets of each side, familiar gemstones twinkling back. One side, however, was missing a disk, and a pale light shone from it.

(He's a special worm, isn't he?)

 

Again, the tube was far too large to fit in the socket. However, the gold end of the tube got caught on the socket's edges, and it slipped off, falling to the floor with a clatter. The contents inside the tube fell out; a scroll of papyrus and a small disk of thulecite.

Stitchovsky was ecited. Turning his attention to the lifeless creature in his hands, he decided to try to bring it to life.

He set it on the ground, and chanted:

"Ur shra shra san'goh if'she she lie frash frash san'goh shrahra shra shra!"

After this, he passed his hand, which now had a dull red glow, over the taxidermized rabbit...and it twitched with its first spark of life. It's eye opened, and the other socket flickered on with a bright glow. Stichovsky descended into maniacal laughter.

The disc had a simple swirl design carved into the material.

 

The scroll, on the other hand, had far more interesting contents; while part of it has rotted away, most of it is retained. The writing on the papyrus was, surprisingly, written in English, instead of the unusual ciphers of the ruins.

 

Alchemical Servant Runes

 

Mutter runes once conditions are met.

 

Activate - Allows the sentience of the creature. Requires Thulecite Disk. Takes virtually no time for the spell to activate.

 

Marke - Allows the creature, when sentient, to mark a certain individual or landmark mentally. When commanded, it will return to the mark. Requires contact with individual and/or structure. Takes five minutes for rune to activate.

 

Followe  - Causes servant to follow marked being. See Above.

 

Heale - Creature emits an inconspicuous aura that allows wounds from failure or battle to heal in a shorter time. Requires Mandrake or its byproducts. Takes fifteen minutes to prepare.

 

Flyte - Gives flight to the servant, allowing it to search unusual areas. Requires feather, preferrably of the Redbird. Takes five minutes for runes to activate.

 

Protos - Provides a short lasting sheild at the expense of bodily fluids. Requires blood. Takes three minutes to activate.

 

Corporealize - Allows servant to make insubstantial creature corporeal, allowing one to manipulate or befriend the creature. Requires presence of unnatural being. Takes twenty minutes to activate.

 

Collete - Commands servant to collect resources neccessary to survival. Will only pick specific resources; speak clearly what you need. Can only collect one product at a time. Takes virtually no time to activate.

 

Alche-

 

 

 

The rest of the scroll was rotted and/or ripped off into incoherent pieces.

The disk fits perfectly into the socket on the cube, and began pulsing a pale orange light, a faint aura.

 

Even so, the cube doesn't show signs of activating.

 

(Mutter the words.)
