Introduction

Image
Image

Henrietta, Virginia has a rich history, the least of which has to do with Algionby Boarding School, a boarding school located within it's valleys which is known for educating the children of oil barons, politicians, and mistresses' living off of hush money. Far more fascinating than the lives of these elite youth are the seemingly mundane residents of the town; the man who runs the grocery market, the woman who owns Sammy's, a popular spot for the youth of the town. For they are the ones who have settled permanently in this town, and who have lived here long enough for the magic of the area to seep into their bones, their genes. Some had supernatural blood in their veins before moving here, but those families who have lived here long enough have received it regardless of prior blood status. This is because Henrietta sits atop one of the most powerful, and one of the few active, ley lines of the world. The ley line breathes energy and power into their daily lives, affecting adults and children alike. While the power is not known to those outside of Henrietta, and may be unknown to some of the newer residents, it radiates something that draws the wealthy and powerful to it- hence the establishment of Algionby Boarding School.


Image
ImageThe Town has a sort of hierarchy, based upon how long people have been residents. The older the family, the more powerful the ley line magic pulses through their blood, and therefore the more powerful they are. The oldest family in the town are the Henrys, who founded the town and come from a long line of witches and psychics. They have had positions of power, as mayors, doctors, business owners, in the town for several generations. Most of the family members eventually leave Henrietta, but enough stay that they have become a permanent staple of the town. The family is known to have it's own internal struggles, often the source of branch families leaving Henrietta, but they deal with the struggles themselves, and the police here do not interfere. They are one of the few families with enough money to send their children to Algionby Boarding School, and for this wealth are resented by some of the other residents.

Image
]ImageImageAs far as anyone outside of Henrietta is concerned, Algionby Boarding School is the only thing in the town worth noticing. It caters to the children of the incredibly wealthy or very famous, and is the bane of the normal residents. The students can easily be identified by the raven emblem on their uniforms, and the expensive cars that no one else can afford. Some were sent here to get them out of their family's hair, some to form connections with other future CEOs and Politicians, and others are Scholarship students who are struggling to remain in- as losing their 4.0 GPA means losing the scholarship. Algionby is structured something like a university, with the students taking one or two 2-3 hour classes a day, and having the rest of the day off to do as they please. This often includes going to parties, hanging out at Sammy's, or interacting with the public school kids. Some of the students who have been here for longer, as it is a K-12 school, have developed weakened abilities due to their closeness to the Ley line for 180 days of the year, plus weekends.


Image

It's summertime now, but some of the Algionby students have chosen to remain- namely, the most influential among them, along with a few oddballs sprinkled in. Why? For the Raven's Legend, something which recently surfaced, a tale previously known only to the Henry family. According to the legend, the founding members of the town triggered the Ley Line's magic when they awakened it, over a century ago. The Ley Line has remained steadily growing in power ever since then, but it is suspected that the most recent influx of power is not unlike the last burst of life before passing. The people of Henrietta are now the strongest they've ever been, but it will not last. By the end of the summer, the power will disappear once more, unless the heart of it can be found and reawakened once more, something which requires a sacrifice. Even the Henry Family does not recall where the heart of the ley line is anymore, though they had gained its favor the first time they awakened it. Whoever renews it's life will be given the favor of the Ley Line, and with it the legendary power of the original Matron of the Henry family, Mathilde Henry. Not all of the students who remained truly believe in it- some are just in it for kicks, or because they don't want to return home. Others have complete faith in it, and for their personal reasons, want the power of the Ley Line.

They are not the only ones searching for it, of course- there are Henrietta Locals on the hunt as well, ones who have more power than the students do. But the students have an advantage- a dusty old book from the school library, a journal written by Mathilde Henry herself. If the Henry family finds that they have it, they'll do anything to get it back, because they aren't about to lose their place as the heads of the town. The race for the Ley Line is on.
