Songs of a Restless City

Songs of a Restless City

0 INK

[Modern magic and swords] The gritty underbelly of the city bends its knees in prayer to the fat cats that rest in their oppressive skyscraper, smirking down at the homeless, the ill, and the debtors. Gunpowder and Spells fill the air.

1,890 readers have visited Songs of a Restless City since Lord General created it.

Introduction

Image


As you walk through the litter-ridden streets of your neighborhood, passing the homeless man with the pus-filled, rotting leg, and the little kid who just shot down a man for a scrap of bread, you have to wonder why it is that you have the power you do. It's not uncommon for the rich - looming overhead in their magnificent, gilded palaces of iron and glass - to have a magical ability, but it's almost unheard of for someone born in the streets to do what you can. You've heard the rumors, though. A man making water? A woman turning trash into bread? It's not impossible... but it's rare.

Every day, another person starves. The black market has practically slashed the prices on firearms to nonexistence. The body count has risen to the point that - in some parts of the streets - you have to wade through a sea of rot and rats; a daily danger nowa day. There's backalley talk of a civil war - not really a secret anymore when every man has a gun and the knowledge to use it.

But... there was the man. He had called you in from the rain of the upper city's waste to talk. He wasn't like the others - his dress, the way he carried himself... his card... - He was from the upper city. It was obvious when he talked to you about being hired. maybe... you should stop the resistance before it starts. Mercenaries were in high demand right now...

However your song is played... it's time to sing. Sing for this restless city.

Circe
Circe's head snaps up hearing a loud rap at her front door. Giving a small frown at the disrupting noise, she sets down the bills she was reviewing before scooting the wooden chair across the laminated flooring. Making her way across the tiny apartment, she opens the door to see a rather distraught looking man dressed in a professional black suit. "Um...Mi-miss Marks..correct? Blinking, she stares at the man with emotionless icy eyes before he continues, obviously in discomfort under her stare "Mr.Snatch...um..requests your...presence for a noon luncheon... I'm here to drive you.." He trails off seeing the cyborg raise one eyebrow and,relishing in his confusion, flashes him a half smirk. A small chuckle escapes her as she gives a slight nod of her head "I'll be out in a few seconds then." Closing the door, a triumphant smirk bursts onto her lips as she almost prances back to her bedroom, changing into her "professional" outfit. "So.. he's caved huh?" Making her way back to the door, she ignores the driver's surprise at the sudden change of her apparel and brushes past him.

Before she knew it, she was back in front of the wooden oak doors from the previous day. Sending a glance over, she frowns seeing the hole had been patched up and she couldn't help but miss opening in the wall. Giving a small sigh, she starts to shift from foot to foot in the silence of the hall, getting bored.

“Oh me either-“ Elysium remarked. She set the man down with Rowan at the same time, and once her hands was free- they came to her hips and she glanced over Ares with a concerning eye. It was not her position in life to judge whether or not people were worthy of leadership as she was far from it. No she figured that Ares deserved this bit of respite from his usual stalwart demeanor. “Ah- well I guess we are done here. Night Rowan.” She really didn’t leave much interpretation to that as she slipped from her leader’s tent.

Tomorrow was a busy day, and she was more than aware the taxations of staying up late would have on that. More so she didn’t think her thoughts or motivations required any more explanation than that.

Carson

Carson sighed, smiling inwardly. Suddenly very aware of the fact that he was still wearing his clothes from the day before, he began contemplating if he would be getting another set any time soon--after all, he wasn't about to wash his only set with Shadowfax around. He watched, closely, as she opened the refrigerator, and cocked his head at what she had pulled out. The carton was almost alien to him, as there had been none like it in the lower city. "You can afford milk? Really?" He laughed softly in wonder, making sure to give her plenty of room as he did so. He didn't intend to be taught any more 'lessons' before he had even gotten breakfast.

Rowan watched as Elysium walked out of the tent, bidding her good night. "Yea..'Night." She said and slipped out of the tent herself. She made her way into her own tent, snatching a bottle up along the way. Once in her tent, she peeling off her clothes, slipped in a long night shirt and decided she'd lull herself to sleep with whatever she had in this bottle.
