Introduction

Every decade in the queendom of Akasia, a handful of girls turn into witches by crusting up into a cocoon like state and coming out of it in a more mature form. The thing is that their disposition will be the opposite of what they were before. Pure and kind girls turn pure evil and psycho brats turn good. If they are in a solid balance they will barely change. The witch (one of there more good kind) queen of Akasia personally brings those destined to become witches to the capital so she can monitor them and stop them if things turn for the worst.

Setting: A modern fantasy world that has magic, but also mostly modern technology with mana crystals as a power source. Mana crystals offer a nearly endless supply of power as when unused they regain their power over time.

Places: Most places in the roleplay are within the Akasian capital of Ruvos. The city has a population of about 250,000. The country itself is more of an empire that expands an entire small continent (about the size of Australia) and has a total population of about 90 million. The capital is however only the tenth largest city. Most of the landscape is forests and farmland as well as a central mountain range. Ruvos is situated at the foot of these mountains about a two hour train ride from the nearest coast. The nation is not an absolute monarchy, but a parliamentary monarchy where the queen also fulfills the role of president and decides over whether to sign legislation and usually does if they make sense. Places within the city are:

-The witch dorm: A dormitory on palace grounds. It has ten rooms with two beds each, a dining room (however occasionally the queen joins them at lunch or dinner or invites them to the dining room in the palace), a recreation room, a studies room and a living room.

-Royal Academy: A school where the witches to be attend to get an education. Since it is an upper class school, it is an uniformed school. The witches to be are generally treated as outcasts within the school and even wear different uniforms. All for a good reason, if they learn to be angry from time to time, they wont turn out as bad as witches. The normal uniforms are shirts with blue ties, blue jackets and blue skirts, whereas the witches to be wear white and black sailor collar school uniforms with black ties and black lace trimmed shorts. In the summertime the uniforms are sleeveless and have long fingerless gloves. In winter they are long sleeved and have white high collared shirts underneath as well as long thermal leggings and a black hooded robe for outside.

-Palace: A large palace with many rooms, a large dining room, a ballroom, an office and various other rooms. The palace constantly had servants and politicians walking its halls.

-Downtown: Has malls, boutiques, restaurants, arcades etc. Pretty much what every downtown area has. The city also has an urban railway with trains that also connect to other areas within the capital region.

-The Great Wall: A large, high wall surrounds the city and is older than the palace. It is said to be 5000 years old and is manned around the clock with mages, cannons and soldiers with guns. The top is reachable by a long staircase.

-The Proving Grounds: A forested area behind the palace. Here royal family members go to train, but also the witches to be come here for shady things.

Outside the capital:

-Goldshore coastal town: A two hour trip with the high speed train from the capital. Goldshore has beautiful beaches and the royal private beach resort. Due to the royal private beach there is a higher police presence in the town than elsewhere.

-Ausur historical village: The birthplace of the empire and the royal family. It is one of the oldest settlements in the nation being over 6000 years old.


Other info:

Witches: Witches come in good and evil. They are mysteriously chosen by a force to become so and go through a cocoon stage on their 16th birthday and when they emerge from the cocoon, they have an adult form and their alignment is the opposite. It has been tradition for the queen to take these in and make sure they do not turn evil. However this practice has only been that way since the coronation of the witch queen after she overthrew her tyrannical father. Before her reign, it was common practice to kill any children destined to become witches or hide them until they became witches. Children who become witches are exclusively female.

Witches to be: The queen made it mandatory for the witches to be to wear a choker or collar with a tear crystal pendant that changes colors depending on the alignment of the wearer. The type of choker or collar can be chosen freely as long as the pendant is attached. Necklaces are too loose and move too much around for a correct reading and the only alternative is for the crystal to be fused into the forehead which is a painful process and remains permanent.

School uniforms are only required in school and during school related training or non-sports afterschool activities.

Some time passed, and after waiting they were invited to another room, for dinner. Raina was happy that waiting ended, but Cole wanted more time for thinking.

Both ended up mildly satisfied at the dinner, Raina thanks to the tremendous amount of food, and Cole who still wanted to consider few things, yet his mind drifted towards food.

Cole Renhedge

“That’s a rare Quishy Sea fish, this is chicken parm… Chilli Crab” he paused, realizing that all he thought now, he also said outloud.

“Uh, forgive me… I have a knack for, well not a knack, but more…”

Raina Crow

“He loves all kinds of food” Raina interjected, smiling lightly, then sighing. She glared at the strange looking fish, covered in something bright, that she never saw before.

“I’ll stick to onion soup, if you have one…” Cole chuckled, and judging by his smug smile… he knew in what this fish was covered.

OOC: Sorry about the long wait. Been constantly sick. Then the site hasnt been working for me the last few days.

Queen Ea

"We have great cooks here. Some even provide food for the poor. So don't be surprised that soup kitchens don't serve worthless slop." Ea said. "I am glad you like the food. And yes we have onion soup."

"So once Mayu wakes up, we are going to the royal ancestral village for the admission ceremony among other things. You are welcome to tag along for the week we are there and I will provide you will accomodations. Just the village has some rules, such as wearing old traditional clothing and that any witches present must participate in the ceremony to admit Mayu among witches. Also touching holy elements within the shrine is forbidden and can be punished with exile to Harvest Island if the actions are severe enough. So are you willing to tag along?" Ea said and smiled.

Cole Renhedge

Cole expected Queen to have great cooks, but he did not expect an invitation to a ceremony. Ceremony that he longed to see since he heard of it from an old woman, but question was… why would she of all people invite them… a question to which he had no certain answer.

“That’s… unexpected, I’d be honored…” He managed to say, before being interrupted by Raina's yawn, who found ceremony as a boring event in lives of witches.

“Uh, I’d like to ask… how…could you tell me a bit about the ceremony itself? I heard that it is a rather fragile, that one can easily ruin it, but is it true, and if it is true, is it really that easy to…”

Raina Crow

Raina Crow only cared about the onion soup part, at least at the begging for as time passed, as they ate and as Cole couldn’t control his excitement by constantly asking about the details of the ceremony… chance to tag along grew to be more interesting, dangerous chance to annoy Queen for once.

She would say nothing, but decision was made, she will tag along.


OOC - Well, this is a terrible post ^^

Queen Ea

Ea listened to Cole: “Uh, I’d like to ask… how…could you tell me a bit about the ceremony itself? I heard that it is a rather fragile, that one can easily ruin it, but is it true, and if it is true, is it really that easy to…”

"It can be ruined, but basically the ceremony involves me dipping my hand in the shrines holy water, touching Mayu's forehead and the other witches chanting an incantation. The actual ceremony only takes about 20 minute, but the feast and the reception afterwards however are included as rites. But tomorrow, I will have the royal tailors discuss your apparel with you for the village since it is a rule to wear traditional clothing." Ea said. "That said, you might enjoy the village as it has many facilities considered to be luxuries, but we in fact rather common in the old days. The village has a private beach on the nearby lake, a sauna, a massage parlor, large sleeping quarters with bamboo mats and heating, lots of trees and gardens and a couple of traditional taverns. If you want souvenirs, you have the option to get those too. For the ceremony, it is request you stay at least three days, but you can stay up to 10 days."

“Ah, I see, that explains a lot, and tailors are bit unexpected, but surely reasonable…” Cole lightly nod, already considering things he’d like to buy as souvenirs, but question that popped in his mind was…

“Wait, what kind of souvenirs can I buy?”

Raina Crow

It was all acceptable for Cole, but Raina wouldn’t accept tailors.

“Tsk, if he wants to wear your stuff, fine, but I’m wearing whatever I want.” Raina wouldn’t even consider wearing something else than her old and sturdy…maybe bit tarnished clothes, but still favorite and probably the only clothes she happens to have.

Queen Ea

"Raina, if you want to come along, you will have to adhere to at least the basic rules of the village. If you wear a hooded cloak, it should suffice. Otherwise we will have to go without you." Ea said.

She then turned to Cole: "Souvenir wise, you can buy dishes, statuettes, decorative weapons, amulets, trinkets, snacks, etc. Usually more old era style stuff. The royal village is like a living museum, you know."

OOC: Sorry again for delay. Also should we soon do a time skip?

Raina Crow

Raina crossed arms, her face had that look of an unhappy child, when the sweet is taken away.

“Fine.” She said, or rather muttered.

Cole Renhedge

Cole’s eyes shining, lips lightly parted as he sighed. Collection will have a new addition, and hopefully it will be a beautiful statue, or a sword from ancient times, is what he thought.

“Ah, good, I see, when shall we go?” He asked.

Queen Ea

"We can go once Mayu has completed her transformation. So probably tomorrow. Until then, I will have to make arrangements and I will have the tailors discuss with you preferred clothing in traditional style. Also I will need to know if you prefer a modest accomodation or a more luxurious one. The modest one has a small room with a futon style bed, whereas the luxurious one has a larger room and a thick mattress that is elevated." Ea said.

"If you don't know the Akasian traditional clothing, it is basically long flowing gowns and hooded cloaks for women. Royals, warrior and shamans sometimes wore bodysuits underneath so they could change quickly in case of battle. Men usually have baggy pants boots and padded shirts. Robes were also a thing. Nobles usually covered parts of their faces." Ea explained.

OOC: So I don't have to explain in OOC.

Cole smiled at the choice of clothes, and accommodation. Idea of wearing something more traditional sounded interesting, for him, Raina on the other hand listened to it with crossed arms. The idea of traditional clothing and flowing gowns was far from her comfort zone, but cloak made her relax a bit, which was notable by the fact her arms were no longer crossed, the moment she heard about them.

When it comes to accommodations… Cole was slightly more interested in luxurious one, but considered resting there as inappropriate, because of his status. Fact that he somewhat betrayed by closing eyes and shaking his head when luxurious one, was mentioned.

He cared, while Raina did not, either would be fine.

“Ah, b-but of course, when it comes to accomodations… I’ll be fine with the modest one.” Cole said, blinking bit too much, sight to which Raina sighed.

“Such an… he’s interested in both for sure.” Was her guess, and so she said it. “I don’t care which one, but full gown is a no.” Once more crossed arms were back.
