Blood Crystal Mage

Blood Crystal Mage

0 INK

After 1000 years, a great evil has reemerged. Power hungry magic users that drain the life from the lands. You are that evil.

809 readers have visited Blood Crystal Mage since Aniihya created it.

Introduction

In old Ybsterian legends, there was a figure feared by the Ybsterian citizens. The figure sapped the power of beings for it's own gain. The figure was know as the Blood Crystal Mage. He used to be an acolyte of the temple who lost a loved one. The man decided that he must kill to become a god and create the perfect world where he could be together with his loved one and where everyone would be immortal. However the mage died in a stupid incident where a falling rock crushed him. It has been almost 1000 years since then. But now where the city states of Ybsteria are in conflict, not one but multiple blood crystal mages will rise bringing an age of fear and terror. You will be one of them.

You as a blood crystal mage: You have lost a loved one or are desperate to stop the global conflict. In your eyes, you are doing good and live in the delusion that you are the good guy. Yet you may kill indiscriminately or cause fear and suffering once you reveal yourself. There will be people who will try to stop you. Your enemies are mostly the temple and mage hunters from the city states.

Ybsteria: Ybsteria is a mountainous continent with some wide valleys. The city states are usually located in a valley but some are built alongside or even within mountains. Valleys are usually used as farmland. Some rivers flow through the continent. There is only one port in the south of the continent within the story.

Plot beginning: The story begins in a tavern in the mountainside city state of Lyran. You are meeting up with some old friends who have suffered like you (other players). But one has found a book that shows a solution to your problems. Upon touching the book, red crystal forms on the back side of your hand (the book chooses the players while other people who touch the book do not get a crystal). While some are hesitant at the beginning, they start getting acquanted with the thought that they need to kill to reach the world they desire. Some may go all out on their journey while others may remain more covert.

Note: There is only one playable side, however if you don't play a blood crystal mage, you can play an ally (such as a templar who acts like a spy).

Amendea then materialized a spectral black blade and made a single slash. It first seemed as if nothing had happened to the two guards in front of the camp but the two wooden towers behind them first slid on the cut and then collapsed. As the two guards started to turn to see what happened, they heads simply fell off. Amendea then dashed towards the camp and began to slash wildly, decapitating about ten bandits. As she absorbed their souls, her aura started to become barely concealable. One man ran up to her and was shocked to see his fallen comrades. Amendea then began to feel a burning inside of her and all of a sudden she was engulfed in darkness becoming a shadowy figure that began to chow down on the man. When it was over, she was partially shocked by what she had just done, but at the same time it felt really good.

(She is pretty much so far on the dark side now, that it is probably impossible to bring her back. She is aware of her actions, but becoming the villain is enjoyable for her now.)

Ishon followed behind Amendea after her initial assault, she made for the other half of the camp as Amendea was busy massacaring the other half of the camp. At first they chuckled when they noticed the branch in her hand but their laughter was soon silence when she knocked two of their head off with two quick swings, afterwards she rushed at the rest of them easily cutting them down and absorbing their souls in the process until only one man was left out of the 12. The man knew he was dead but he charged at her with a sword, she easily deflected the attack and threw a kick at his neck separating it from his body. After it was all over she dropped the tree branch and looked around in case there was one guy who was indeed hiding. After making sure it was clear she gave a deep sigh, she had done what needed to be done, she did not feel happy or sad, she just felt strange like she did not know what emotion to show.

(Yes...join the dark side of the force, muhahahahah. For me on the other hand, it seems she does not know what to show anymore but will keep on killing for the future. Neutral at best.)

Amendea approached Ishon with a smile on her face, the smile was nearly wicked in nature. "Can you feel the power? With this strength we could build a new world, where we can be goddesses and bring the people eternal peace! Haha. Hahahahahaha." Amendea said, ending in a pretty much outright terrifying crazy laugh.

"Ishon. I am counting on you. Together, we will end this stupid war and end the suffering of the ill and the hungry. It is a horrible world to live in. If you are starving, you cannot be guaranteed to not suffer if someone brings you food once." Amendea said to Ishon.

(It should be a bit clearer now, that Amendea IS a villain. :D)

When Ishon saw Amendea with that wicked smile an her face and crazily laughing, she knew that her mind was unstable. Although she did not want to say anything, they were partners in this and the only way they had a chance of stopping this war was to work together. She smiled back polity. "Don't worry Amendea, I will see this to the end." Of course she was not sure what Amendea had planned after everything was complete but she had to make sure she did not do anything too crazy, even if it meant having to fight her in the end. they were helping these people, not killing them off, they could easily rebuild the world but in a way where no more blood had to be shed.

(Now she is worried at what she may do in the end...hint hint nudge nude...For now she is going to keep an eye on her and continue to fight.)

When Ishon said that she would stay by Amendea's side until the end, Amendea said: "That would be great. I would hate to have to take you out shall you turn against me." Amendea then looked around and saw lights down in the valley. "You see there? That looks like a village. Maybe we can save some of their sickly or maybe the entire village if they are blighted." She said. "They are bound to need help with something." Amendea started walking downhill towards the direction of the lights in the valley.

(80 posts! Probably one of the longest roleplays I have had on here.)

Take her out?...Ishon shuddered at the thought. Did Amendea believe she would turn her back on her? She had to drop the thought when Amendea was walking to the village to see if there were any sick people or if the town was blighted. If the town was blighted she would be more willing to end them if they wished but for sick people she could help them by making a remedy, she had read enough books on medicine to cure certain ills.

(1X1's Tend to last the longest...for obvious reasons...Longest RP I had was a 1x1 with 1091 posts. Anything else just ended within the first week due to people up and leaving.)

Amendea then put up her hood and led the way towards the village in the valley. It seemed further away than it looked and it took them nearly an hour to get there. Once there, Amendea started to frown as there were dead people in the streets and ill people along the homes. A group of people seemed to be burning corpses for some reason. "Looks like a blight, epidemic or plague to me. It is unlikely that a cure will be found. Worst part is that it could spread elsewhere and the village is too close to the citadel. I am afraid we will have to raze this place. Not just kill, we have to be a bit more extreme. We might have to turn this place into ash and dust." Amendea said to Ishon. "But first, I will check the symptoms and take samples so that I could eventually make a cure in the years to come. A cure would also bring people to our side. But by the time, I would have a cure, these people would die from the illness." Amendea then went to take samples from the villages and stored them is airtight vials.

Ishon followed Amendea to the village in the valley. Although it was quite far away their trip ended as they arrived to the village with the first things to greet them were dead bodies and people who seemed to by very ill. The smell of burning bodies filled the air curtesy of the fires burning on the streets and some people covered from head to toe in clothing were tossing them in so they themselves would not get infected.

The sight was disgusting and when Amendea suggested they Raze the village so nothing but ash remained, Ishon thought it would be a less painful death then slowly getting killed by some sort of disease caused by the war. "I...agree with you. This is just horrible, these people are probably victims of the war, wherever death comes there are sure to be vermin swarming the battlefields and spreading plague to villages such as this. We should at the very least give the dieing some comfort before just killing them, some mercy killing sounds better than having your insides burst open and having disgusting things popping all over your skin. I shall leave you to gather the samples, I will see if I can locate the village mayor and get his permission to end the people's suffering." Ishon replied as he began to locate the most expensive looking house, of course there was a chance that he either ran away to avoid the plague or was hiding in his house until everyone around him died and he would come out unscathed.
