    I've never drank coffee really, I just prefer non-caffeinated drinks.

    Of course gamers are readers. If there is more than one gamer that is a reader, then logically there are gamers that are readers.

    While Trixie is muttering and attempting to reason with herself, baby Revel yawns a couple of times, finishes his beer, then fashions his lips over the neck of the bottle to make some hollow sounding tunes. The music sounds quite nice, if not a little haunting. When Trixie finally asks for his advice, he stops blowing into the spout and tosses the bottle carelessly over his shoulder again. This time the bottle appears in space in the year 2063 and topples into the opening of a propulsion system to a newly designed space craft, causing said propulsion system to malfunction... and ultimately sets human space travel back another 50 years.

    "Sometimes people just aren't ready for new things." Revel looks at Trixie, removing the glasses from his face. "Take it from me, as the old expression goes - and for a very good reason - knowledge is one of the greatest powers of all. Why not try and be at least a little smart about your decision here today. After all, you don't want to mess this up. I'm not going to make any decisions for you, but you're running out of time, I have places to go and people to humiliate, so hurry up and make a decision. Here, I'll make it easy on you, as I can see you're having a great deal of trouble with this.... Just imagine being someone. Give them a name, imagine what their personality is like, what their interests are, what talents they have and what they find important in life. See them in your minds eye where words could never be enough to describe, and I'll do the rest."






    Trixie sighs at what Revel says, she sits down on...whatever she is standing on. She starts thinking about who she would like to be. She didn’t want to be anything like what she was. She wanted to be free, not a person who always worried about what other people thought of her. She wouldn’t care about power or ego like Trixie did either. All of those things didn’t help Trixie in the past anyway. She imagines a girl with no ties to her previous life in any way….

    …This girl would be 17. Old enough to make her own decisions, but she would hardly have a care in the world. She’s attractive, because why not? But she wouldn’t even care about that either…. Her name would be Aella, and would be somewhat short and petite, but stronger than any other girl her size and is very agile. Her eyes are a light green and have excellent sight. She wears modest clothing, a little dull though. Perhaps like a man with trousers, a top and boots. Her hair is a light brown. Not too long, but it’s a little bit messy and flows around wherever, just like her personality…. Aella would go where she pleases and do what she wants whenever she wants to. She would be a free spirit. Just like the wind…. Speaking of the wind, that would be her unique power as well, not fire, ice, dark magic or anything like that, aella would be an air mage instead. Yes, she would have the ability to control the wind, and perhaps even other parts of the weather at times.

    Now Trixie starts thinking about Aella’s history. Where did she come from? What sort of life did she have? Trixie imagines she would be from a small town named Tiago... far to the South of Waise. Aella grew up there, but most of her childhood was rather unimportant. Her parents encouraged the young Aella to learn Air magic, as they were air mages themselves. She accepted and she eventually mastered their teachings. But for many years she had no idea of the great power she was really capable of. This all changed when she was 15. Whilst she was leaving school one day, a beastly bear-like creature attacked the town, and this was the event when Aella realized how truly powerful she was, even greater than that of her parents or anyone else in her town had ever known. That was the day she was crowned a hero to her people.

    When the monster entered town the villagers ran from it, and many were caught by surprise being injured and died. But Aella didn’t run. She confronted it, because the love for her people filled her with unexpected courage and she grew angrier and angrier upon each passing moment the beast was alive. She automatically focused on the teachings of her parents and her anger somehow made her realize much more than she had been taught. A new level of her power was unlocked.... Miraculously, the beast soon collapsed, Dead. Aella had channelled her energy and stole the air from inside it, causing the beast to suffocate.

    After this incident, she was called a hero by the many villagers. She impressed her parents, she impressed everyone. For heroic deed, a green bow, forged from refined Viridium (A green metallic rock found in the mountains near her village) was awarded to her. The Viridium was light, durable and made an excellent material for a bow. The arrows were also crafted from Viridium, and some of these arrows were tipped with Viridium Crystal, a special crystal that is naturally formed in the same way that diamonds are formed from coal, and found naturally in the mountains around the village as well. Since Viridium Crystals were said to hold their own magical properties, Aella separated them from the other arrows and reserved them for special occasions. (the special magic of these arrows will be revealed later)

    It wasn’t difficult for Aella to learn how to use the bow, it was like second nature to her. Over the next two years she became a master of archery. It also turned out to be an excellent tool to use in conjunction with her Air Mage abilities - Naturally these air magical abilities could assist many things such as levitation, helping her move and run at amazing speeds, remove the air from lungs or larger spaces, and slow her descent when falling from dangerous heights - but she could also use the same air manipulation to alter the course of an arrow, speed up its velocity, slow it down, and even bend its path around corners.

    Because Aella is small, the bow was practically the same length as her and she almost always carried it in one hand, not on her back. It was more than just a bow. It became a multipurpose tool; a staff to conduct air spells (even though she didn’t need it to do that), a melee weapon for close combat, a cane to help in hiking and mountaineering, even while walking she would walk the bow at her side in one hand as a companion, and while standing still she would hold it like a native holds a spear to lean on with one foot resting on the knee of the other leg. For all intents and purposes, the bow became an extension of her body.

    While Trixie imagines the existence of this person and all her special gifts, she also knows that in the end Aella is human and has weakness like any other human; she can be injured, she can bleed and she can die. But Trixie also knows because Aella is only young, she still has a lot to learn about herself and her magic abilies…


    She then looked to Revel, wondering what he thought of this.

    In a peculiar moment, Trixie discovers herself alone in the dining room. The event seems… ambiguous, rendering her uncertain as to whether those with her had vanished, or if she had simply missed the moment when they exited via the door. Whichever the case, while still coming to terms with being forsaken, Orson enters the room.


    The hooded man is noticed as the door slams shut behind him. Without a moments further notice, he advances upon Trixie, wielding the blade wildly while yelling all manner of profanities.



    Trixie narrows her eyes at the hooded man. She picks up a chair and hurls it in his direction. She ran around for a little, being careful not to be near his blade. A fiery orange fireball forms in her hand and she sends it flying in his direction. She starts forming another.

    Sluggy was upset, actually he was very distressed when the tornado wind struck, because somewhere in the turmoil he lost grip of Trixie's shoulder. His little soggy, slimy body twisted and turned in the air, narrowly missing all manner of projectiles as he screamed, not just for his life, but for the deep, deep despair he was suddenly feeling for possibly having lost his purple girlfriend forever. Then, just before everything went calm, he was thrown from the tornado and slapped against the wall with enough force to flatten his body on impact. Fortunately, he didn't die, and as his body regained its rounded shape he decided clinging to the wall was probably his best option for now in any case. He looked around desperately for Trixie, calling out her name at the top of his lungs, fearing more than anything that maybe she couldn't hear his little voice from way up high near the ceiling.





    Revel had just polished off his bottle of black label in the moment the tornado struck. Lifted from his seat he laughed merrily enjoying the ride until it sadly came to an end and he was dumped on his back in a puddle of gravy, empty bottle still in hand. He then watched Lyudmila as she struggled to her feet then attempt to speak before collapsing on the floor beside him. He rolled over, gave her a kiss on the cheek and wished her sweet dream before standing up and looking around at the mess.

    "I did say it wasn't going to last much longer," he said to no one in particular, then threw a not-so-surprised look in Ezra's direction; "...So let the games begin."

    He then walks up next to Boris, Trixie and Jack, folding his arms while raising one brow in an aloof kind of way at the charred soul huddled in fear on the floor. But he didn't say anything to him at all.

    Trixie glanced over at Revel and nodded. It took a few seconds for her to hear Sluggy basically screaming her name at the top of her lungs. Trixie sighed and went on over, and tried to reach him. Glancing over at Ezra occasionally, holding her wand in a defensive position.

    "Ohhhh, baby, you know the right questions to ask, don't ya." Sluggy licked his soggy lips and gave Trixie's fine neck a looking over; "I'll eat however you want me to." He presses up against her neck, excreting some mucus on her skin. "Let me tell ya, there's plenty more where that came from."

    Trixie does a sigh at that. "Not now...maybe later. I've got...things to do right now. Not involving you...but later." she smirks. This slug certainly likes her, for whatever reason.

    "I say we rest," Ace says. "This may be the safest place we will find tonight. Best to sleep while we can."


    Sunset lays down on the ground, and uses her bag as a pillow. Its not all that comfortable, but its better than using the floor as her pillow. Slowly but surely, she drifts off into the land of dreams. Sleeping.

    "Oh - please!" Revel actually seems a little upset by Orson's behavior; "Now I may be a God who thrives on entertainment, even in the hopes of bloodshed a lot of time, but harming a caged and defenseless animal, especially a talking freak like this one, is just downright inhumane of you..." Revel raises an eyebrow; "But make no bones about it, you aren't exactly human either, are you?"

    Turning to Trixie, Revel gives a doting look, but probably forced, and reaches into the cage. He touches the Ponies wound, which immediately heals.

    "But you're actually wrong." Revel Tells Trixie with a scornful laugh; "I have been known to throw poop around the place, but I am far from being human. But I tell you what." Revel says with a single clap of his hands. The Cage disappears as he does so. "Why don't you let me know what being human is actually like? I'd be interested in your feedback." And, with those words said, the mummy wraps unraveled from Trixie's body and gathered neatly in a bundle on the floor, revealing her new human form.

    Revel then look's around mischievously, as if making sure no one else will hear an upcoming dirty joke, then leans in close with his hand placed next to his mouth to whisper. "But don't come running to me if you... uh... encounter a few unexpected side effects." He gives her a wink.



    Trixie looked rather amazed at this 'poop throwing ape' 's abilities. She gave Orson a hard glare, and then looked down at her body. Her pony form was completely gone, what was left was quite frankly...astounding and shocking to her. Her pinkish purple eyes go wide at what she sees. She then looks to Revel. "What the..." she mutters and then goes silent. "HECK!??" she shouts in utter confusion, and probably horror. She starts hyperventilating a bit. "How?? You must be...so Great and Powerful!" she says to Revel, and then looked confused at what he said about 'unexpected side effects'.

    She tried to stand up, she barely manages to do so. And shakes, trying to get her sense of balance in her new form. The halo and wings are no longer there, unsurprisingly. She also held a bluish wand of sorts.

    (Looks like this)

    Next to a slug, and a rather small kitten, a blue pony sat down next to the slug. The slug could see she had a rather elegant bluish coat, her eyes were a rather calm pink, she has a set of retracted wings which look rather well kept, and a pinkish halo behind her head, with a smaller silvery one inside of it. On her flank there is a sort of wand and a weirdly shaped crescent moon. She appears to be enjoying whats going on in the arena so far, she looks at the slug and the small kitten.

    Curi awakens inside of the enclosed dark space of a coffin. She is confused, the last thing she remembers is being killed by a rampaging runed pony. She then remembers her conversation with Revel as well. She feels the wood of the coffin, and starts to punch at it, giving a few blows at it. It takes awhile, but eventually she finds herself out of the coffin. Its still dark, she feels along the walls, finding the handle to a door. She gives it a slight turn and the door opens, revealing a graveyard. What she does next is proceeding to drain the life of the nearest tree, she grabs one of its branches firmly and drains its life, leaving the graveyard looking slightly more dead.
