Caelis walked through the gates for the first time as a student and not as a supplier. While he wasn't gawking at the sight since it was somewhat familiar... he couldn't say with confidence where this gymnasium was. Usually, someone had guided them and showed them where to drop off the delivery. This was a little bit different. Though it was odd that it wasn't clear where the gymnasium was. Was it a bit of a test, or... was the school not that concerned about guiding the students on their first day and expected them to rely on upperclassmen?

Caelis didn't know the answer, but it never hurt to ask around rather than blindly walk around and trip over the janitor or blast a locked door open indiscriminately. Caelis wondered if the school fined students for property damage. Still, looking around, it was kinda clear who was a freshman and who wasn't. The freshmen were seemingly causing all sorts of commotion while the upperclassmen were a bit more relaxed about the whole fiasco and took their time to walk.

Caelis looked around for a friendly looking upperclassman and once he spotted one he approached them, asking "Hi, sorry to interrupt. I'm Caelis, a new student to the Academy. Do you know where the gymnasium is? This all seems kinda disorganized. Unless we're supposed to try and find the place by ourselves, but then again... some people might not even know what the letter says since they're from another world or illiterate due to unfortunate circumstances."


Name: Caelis Wolff
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Discipline: Jack
Element: Light
Skills:

Flash: Caelis found out, much to his surprise, that he has some magical ability though it seems to be very minimal. One day, he was startled by something moving in the forest while he was camping at night. Next thing he knew, a quick, bright light burst out of his hand and blinded him for a few seconds. The spell isn't very powerful or long lasting, meaning it couldn't be used as a light source, but it can blind people around him (or himself too if he's not careful) for a few seconds.

Distract: Caelis is able to draw attention to himself through various means whether it be saying something outrageous to anger a person, tell a really good story, or even flirt a bit.

Racial Abilities:
N/A

Passive Abilities:

Silver Tongue: Caelis has been educated and brought up in a business environment. Needless to say, he seems reliable and cordial to most sentient beings that he meets for the first time, giving them a more positive disposition towards him than towards a complete stranger.

Bookworm: Caelis is a very quick reader and well read. While he might not be the most talented fighter, he could tell you quite a bit about some of the most renown sword masters in history or the theory and development of the mordhau.

Personality: Caelis believes in two fundamental principles. One is that the wealthy and powerful have an obligation to take care of and treat those who work for them like family. Two, to always treat others cordially despite any differences. While it may come off as privileged at times, he does genuinely hope to use his abilities to make positive changes for all, and is rarely ever rude or malicious in his interactions as he believes that everyone has their own circumstances and being cordial to all makes life a lot more easier for everyone involved.

History:

The Wolff family is an a relatively well off merchant family that has its history tied to the Academy. The Wolff Trading Co has long been a contractor for the Academy, getting the school whatever it is that they need. Need Ice Phantom Ectoplasm for a lecture in two weeks? The family will get it in 10 days. Need to find out the location of someone who is being smuggled/on the run? Well... the Wolff family does know some people in Valcroft who might be able to help the Academy find this person.

Caelis himself was brought up to continue the family business and began participating in caravans and trade envoys ever since he was 13. By 16, he was leading one himself and meeting all of his family's acquaintances as his parents wanted to slowly give him more responsibilities to eventually take over the family business. Then on one caravan trip, it had happened. The Flash. Caelis, who never had any magical ability suddenly emitted a burst of light from his hand. Knowing that his discipline had manifested itself, Caelis finished the long trip and returned home to attend the Academy.

Little did he know that he was a Jack, which was a disappointment. But even in these circumstances, he found a way to be closer to the Academy than ever before. Determined to help the Academy and his family, Caelis continues his studies to better learn how the Academy operates and what more that he and his family can do to make positive changes in the world.

To Lothair's surprise, a familiar group of people found their way to the barracks. "What a coincidence." He commented to the group as theycwere led into the building. Lothair looked around the barracks and was impressed it was a cozy, sturdy building, very well designed. The devs took a lot of time with the artwork and paid attention to the little details.... or maybe... this was just designed by the NPCs? If so the AI was VERY intelligent to be able to do some serious architecture and interior design. This game world was HUGE. If the entire game was this well-designed... James couldn't help but wonder how many hours developing all this took as Tu Tuari Al began to speak to the group with natural charm and convincing personality.

Lothair equipped the little badge that they had received though it seemed more like a cosmetic item like his cape as it difn't seem to have stats based on his cursory look. Still, it would likely help him stand out in the wave of new adventurers. Lothair looked around for this Fumb fellow. Every guard seemed pretty big and armored, but then he spotted one who seemed particularly big and armored. Lothair approached the man and said "Hello Captain Fumb. I'm Lothair. I was asked to help with the wolf problem that the city is having and wanted some advice as Tu Tuari Al pointed me to your direction if I had any questions. So, I was hoping to find out where the wolves are, and learn a bit about them before I set off. If you have a bit if time, I would love to learn things like: How do they fight? Anything I should look out for? And what's going on that the city is suddenly having wolf problems? Are they a pack that just happened to recently migrate here?"

Lothair also made a mental note to visit the market to see if he could get new equipment before setting out to fight the wolves. He got some coin from the slime mission after all.
A discord would be nice!
Interested!
The small girl quickly turned to look towards the mage, grimacing at the appearance of an Imperial man in their city acting so friendly. "One copper for a slice, five for a loaf. We've also got some cheese for the bread, but that'll raise you another five copper, but it's really going to transform the taste!" Angie's salesmanship was stronger than her disposition towards others, all paled in comparison to the great and mighty coin!

Lothair smiled at the ambitious, young entrepreneur. She kind of reminded him of himself when he was younger. Lothair fished out two copper coins and replied "Just one slice for now, but if you're up for it. I'm pretty new to the town. Mind showing me around the town for a bit for a little bit to get yourself another coin? You look like you know the place well and I'm trying to find a certain Tu person to hand in a quest. Anything else interesting in the town that you think would be helpful for an aspiring adventurer like me would be appreciated... might even be more coin for you if its really fantastic."

"Ahhh? There's guides in town pal. If you want my expertise for thart sorta stuff, it'll run you more than a handful of copper. You have any silver? The Adventurer's Guild Secretary here is my older sister." Angie flashed her toothy smile to the mage, though would quickly snap from her wit and jump up attempting to swipe the two copper from the man's hand. She would then wink at him playfully, stepping back for a moment before speaking. "There's lots of new adventurers in town - nothing makes you special Mr. Imperial. Though, I will sell you some bread!"

Lothair chuckled and replied "Never claimed to be much more than a potential customer. Still, thank you for the little bit of information, Miss." as he lowered his hand to give the girl the two copper coins. "Now, I at least know who to come to for fresh bread in the morning. Pleasure to meet you, my name is Lothair." as Lothair reached for a handshake as well. He planned to wrap up the conversation and try to get the little girl's name. The Adventurer's Guild seemed like a good place to go to. Someone there could probably help Lothair meet with this Tu fellow.

"Angie Sanguiram, make sure you tell any adventurers you see that my bread is the best or I'll tell the guards you made a move on me." The young girl's hand reached out to shake Lothair's hand, clasping it delicately with her small hand. "And if you decide you're willing to drop a silver on some guidance, I'm your gal! But yeah, adventurer's guild is right next to the entrance of town - the building is too large to not notice." She smiled and nodded the man off before turning on her heel to walk away and continue selling to adventurers.

Lothair waved at the girl as she continued on her way. James on the other hand, decided to follow Angie's advice and check out the Adventurer's Guild and began to make his way to the large building and see if he could find some information there about Tu or anything else that seemed interesting.

As the mage entered the large redwood building he would find that it was filled to the brim with NPC adventurers sitting at tables with steins of ale, there were women in cute uniforms perched against the walls standing in attention awaiting someone to approach them and ask for information. The tavernkeep was an eldlerly man, muscular and tall, grayed hair, whereas the Guild Secretary who sat at a desk near stairs that were gated off simply glanced around the room making sure to keep the peace.

A few moments later...

After talking with one of the girls at the Guild Hall, Lothair stepped out of the giant Guild Hall where the helpful lady pointed out that he would find a guard standing by. He approached the nearest one and began to speak "Hello Guardsman, one of the ladies working at the Guild Hall told me that I should speak with you. She recommended that I speak with Tu and a certain Guardsman Fumb at the barracks. Would you mind bringing me to them? I have a quest to turn in to Tu and well... the lady told me I could find more work there as well."
Lothair - Level 3 Mage - Eastern Imperial

Lothair continued his way to the nearby town as the arrow indicated. Thankfully, it seemed that the game was willing to hold people's hand through navigating this new world at least a little bit. Imagine if they had to figure out where everything was just by world of mouth with no UI guidance... suddenly Lothair wished he had been a part of the boy scouts when he was younger, but regardless, Lothair followed the direction of the arrow so that he could meet with the NPC to hand in his slime cores.

However, once Lothair got to the city, he was met with a wave a people, players, NPCs, new sights.... everything. He was a bit dumbfounded as it became clear that finding this Tu Tauri Al would be harder than what he initially expected with all these people running about. In the corner of his eye, Lothair caught the sight of gold, fluttering through the chaotic streets. Turning his attention to it, he noticed a little girl peddling bread. Lothair remembered the info he heard about food helping with temp stats... plus... maybe there were secret stats like hunger as well? If your character didn't eat, then they started to suffer negative modifers or something. Regardless, Lothair approached the young, blond haired girl ... maybe she would know some stuff and help out a customer and asked "Excuse me, Miss. How much are you selling your bread for?"
Will be able to get a proper CS up this coming weekend. Work has been killer for the last few weeks. Earnings season...
Starting Zone: Lothair - Lv 1 Mage


Lothair casted magic missile from a distance and watched as the slime's HP was slightly chipped away. "Jeez, this thing is pretty beefy." He said out loud as he accepted the party request. Lothair was confused by Lynir's comment. "Wha... ducks? There's ducks in the game?" as he looked around the area with nothing that looked like one in sight. Was this guy just roleplaying or something? Lothair wasn't too sure what was going on, but he quickly returned his focus to the slime that they were fighting and began to cast his next barrage of magic missile.

16 this time around. The party had almost chipped away a third of the slime's health so far... this grind really would be a grind at this rate. He figured that they would have to rest between each fight. "I don't think it's particularly weak to magic either! It just has a lot of HP for some reason!"Lothair yelled back.
