  1. Introduction: Tomas Rivera

    Sitting by the window, Tomas watched people flock to the [House of Worship] for the Coming to Age Ceremony. Tears cascaded off his face, he too reached the age for the ceremony, yet his quadriplegia has stifled his rite of passage. It is not to say that those born with such conditions could not join. But awakening the soul would affect every individual and in Tomas’ case it could lead to death. And as the first son of the Kingsword, Fernando Angel Rivera, and the Royal Mage, Dolores Mercedes...
  2. Infiltration P3

    The monument was carved of earth and hematite. It spiraled from the earth as if reaching for the sky, coiled into itself and spread like the branches of a tree. Tomas made out a few figures walking out from underneath the now opened structure before his vision faded. Five figures slowly rose from the depths of the earth, as they stood before Elaine and the others they noticed an unconscious Tomas. "Well now, who is this asleep before my very eyes?" asked a middle aged man with tightly...

  4. Infiltration P1

    It was barely past 2 in the morning when Tomas hobbled to the outskirts of the city. He had injured himself previously when acquiring the cloak and necklace. He made a left at his most frequented bar, The Sink and The Drain, walked until he came upon a decaying Great Basin bristlecone pine and walked counterclockwise around the trunk, “they said the entrance was around here”. He frantically searched for the gates that led to a passage, which was connected to the churches dormitories. As he...
  5. Historian's Dream

    Blood and pus oozed from Tomas’ fingertips as he read The Elemental Contracts by Franz Luminous; a book he has read frequently since his childhood. “There’s a balance between sacrifice and reward when contracting the elements. But how is my sacrifice measured? And is it mutually beneficial for the spirit and myself,” he pondered as he pulled the back cover to the last page. He could have published his own treatises on questioning Franz, if it wasn’t considered heresy to acknowledge magic. He...
  6. Introduction to the Eight Vosha Kings

    The rituals of the moon counteract those of the sun. And those of the mountains counteract those of the skies. For although they were created at once and have created together, they too have their independence and volatile natures. The mountains tried to reach the skies to crush air. The sun tried to burn the moon. These forces have their own wills and their own strengths. To become one with any of them will make anyone less of a mortal. - Franz Luminous. The principles of elemental...
