History

Satogi was born the bastard son of a Paladin. His father was missing for the first several years of his life, and he was raised as a pauper with his mother. The town he lived in was well enough off seeing trade a plenty and visitors many. Only when he had reached the age of eight did his father return and take him under his wing. He was enlisted into the paladin training schools soon after, and learned his father's trade. He studied hard to be just as good as his father, but was interrupted when his father was sent with a team of paladins to help in an effort to purge The Tower of it's corrupted evil. In the end they failed and are said to have died in the Tower. It has taken a great deal of time for Satogi to get over his father's death but he overlooked it and continued training despite his grief. The master paladins became his family and he soon became excellent in his craft. During his graduation into manhood and a full member of the paladin order he was asked what he wished to do with his life to serve god. He replied that he wanted to rid the world of the evil that inhabited the Tower. Although off-put by Satogi's wishes the masters allowed him to leave his home and quest to defeat the Tower...

Now standing before his goal, Satogi has finally made it to the destination of his dreams. He gazes up at the formidable structure and vows to make it to the top floor. "I am ready to avenge my father!"

So begins...

The Tower, standing tall and foreboding against the skyline, was a frightening thing to behold. Satogi stared up at the monstrous structure in both awe and anger. He had heard many tales of this ancient place but this was the first time he had laid eyes on such a thing. The paladin was young, with basic equipment for his class but his weapon a Starlight Sword was rare indeed and stronger than most. His blonde hair and green eyes only added to his fairness and appearance as one of holy design and a bringer of light.

He now stood just outside the front entrance and took a moment to mentally prepare himself before stepping forwards and entered the first floor of the Tower. His armor immediately began to glow with a golden light, as it was his only source of light he had; but the glow traveled far and pierced the blackness of the interior to illuminate whatever might be on the inside.

Drawing his Starlight Sword, which also began to glow but with a white light this time. He held it in front of him as he scanned the entrance of the Tower to judge how difficult it might be, and moved further into the expanse that made up the First Floor. He would examine any monsters that he could find instead of blindly rushing into combat, as this would be a long battle to get to the top of the Tower.

Satori begins delving into the First Floor of the Tower.

Within a few minutes of wandering the halls, he finds a chest; inside, he finds 7 gold pieces and a Scroll of Blink. The scroll, when activated, would whisk Satori away from his current location, and instantly place him somewhere else on the floor he stands on.

After looking around the floor for more things, he is faced with a Corrupt Guard; a soulless human created to patrol the insides of the Tower. The guard does not notice him immediately, giving Satori the opportunity to strike first, or just go around him.

The Paladin wondered the halls and quickly found a random chest. He was cautious of the thing regarding it for traps and found none. The loot he stored quickly, not really caring about it at the moment. His day got more exciting when he found the Corrupt Guard. This foul creature was now just waiting for someone to put it out of it's misery. With a powerful focus on his sword Satogi enhanced the Bright Flash on his Starlight Sword to extremely bright status and would do extra damage but made him less stealthy. With a mighty cry of war, Satogi struck at the Corrupt Guard a blow aimed to slash from one shoulder to the opposite hip.

As the holy blade met the dark creature their energies clashed which caused the light of the sword to burst out and reflect through most of the hallways around Satogi, giving away his position to anything in the immediate area. He wouldn't want it any other way, as he was more than ready to destroy any evil that crossed his path.

Satori's strike filled the floor with light for a brief instant, alerting all presences on the floor.

With his one strike, he nearly cuts straight through the Guard, shattering his shoulder and leaving the blade stuck halfway into the entity's torso. He deftly pulls his weapon out, and lets his opponent collapse to the floor. Upon inspection, Satori found nothing of use on the body.

Satori continues searching the halls, and quickly finds himself faced with a Kobold, armed with nothing much more than a spear made of stone. The Kobold makes a move before he can, and lunges at him violently; thankfully, Satori is heavily armored, and the spear makes no harm to his body.

Sanul was walking amongst the halls when he was suddenly blinded momentarily by an immense flash.

"What the-" he yelled out suddenly, the bright light stinging not just his eyes, but his whole body. The flash quickly dissipated however, and he regained his composure rapidly. Dusting off his robes as if they were dirtied by the light, he picked up the pace; going towards the origin of the flash.

Satogi moved on to find more enemies and quickly came into contact with the Kobold. He was surprised by the little thing's speed but it's inefficient weapon only dinged off of his armor. He almost felt pity for the creature if it was not in the tower. As such, he took up his blade and made to run the Kobold through. He unleashed his Bright Flash and again illuminated a large portion of the First Floor but the Kobold was not evil enough to make these flashes anywhere as bright as the first. If the first strike wasn't enough for the little creature he would continue on his attack with ferocious abandon until it was in at least two pieces.

Recovering his breath from the last fight, Satogi kept on his search for loot and evil to slaughter. The more dark the creature, the more inclined Satogi was to kill it and the brighter his sword's light shined through the halls. He kept searching the halls and rooms he came across, cautious of traps but never fearful of what lies in the darkness. He had heard tales of adventurers finding their lost comrades weeks if not months later, insane and mad from their trials. He hoped he would not meet the same fate as he fought for his right to reach the top floors.

Satori slays the Kobold, and gains from it a set of Chainmail Gloves (+1 Attack, +1 Faith).

Once he finishes looting the Kobold, he continues looking about the Tower. Soon enough, he finds a chest formed from obsidian, lined in golden clasps and shimmering jewels. It radiated with a strong aura; an artifact of great power lies inside. However, it is currently locked shut, protected by a very potent magical seal. It requires a Black Rune, an Attack stat of 25, or an Intellect stat of 20 to force open.

Since Satori filled none of the requirements, he took a mental note of where the chest lay and continued.

After looking hard enough, he found the stairs to the next floor, and was met by Elyzabeth. Sanul also came behind him at a distance, looking to avoid detection. "2 of them, eh?" he muttered to himself. Paladins; the bane of his kind and his practices. He remembered it like it was yesterday; about a month ago, a group of them had raided the Mage Academy where he lived. No one was killed, but they destroyed a few statues and stole a few relics anyways.

With a strong hatred to all Believers, he decided to give them both a surprise. He drew a Summoning Scroll from his backpack, and read at the top of his lungs "Come forth, titan of the Creator! Lay waste to those before me!"

Immediately, a Chaos Elemental formed from thin air in front of him. With a terrifying roar, the magic mercenary ran to them, his massive girth removing any chance to go around him in the corridor the two paladins stood in.

Elyzabeth, naturally, pocketed (well, pouched) everything she could, including the rune-covered obsidian. She didn't know what it did (if anything), but its assumed value and lack of exploding (or worse) on contact justified taking it. Otherwise she was disinterested in the rest of the chest's contents, though not too proud not take the blasting powder. The odorous green pouch could stay.

Satogi did not enter the corridor unheard. Even had she not been an elf, the echo was enough for his steps and mumbling to take her attention. She turned, fists around sword hilts, and regarded him. The lack of monstrous abnormalities, threats, or posed weapons were of some comfort. "Are you the bastard lightin' the whole damnable buildin' with'er light'n?!" She demanded to know, referring to the repeated and obnoxious flashes of his sword. It was likely she'd receive an answer, though, when another stranger angled himself behind Satogi too far away to make out distinct details. She would have called out to the second stranger, likely with more insults and abruptness, but very suddenly a very large thing, much larger than wolves, was charging down the hall. "What in the Hells..." Fortunately Satogi was between her and it, and she assumed any two denizens of the tower fighting wasn't worth intervening yet. Of course she didn't know that Satogi wasn't just another creepy crawly, and wouldn't help until she did. Instead, she slowly (and then quickly) backpedaled.

Satogi approached the corridor cautiously as he spotted the she-elf up ahead. He sheathed his sword as he had no quarrel with this fellow adventurer. When she asked about his light he was surprised that it could have traveled so far down the tunnels. Still, he felt rather proud about it too and drew his blade calmly to show her the glow of his sword as he explained. "Holy Light is one of the few weapons that can destroy dark magic." As he stated this he felt some dark magic nearby, and from the way the elf was backpedaling he guessed it was right behind him.

Charging his sword to a bright light-bearing sword of dawn he turned with his thrust and sent a blade of light straight down the hallway, more than likely skewering whatever was coming at him and illuminating the entire hall with blinding light. When it hits the wall at the end it explodes with great yet silent force. Satogi himself is leaning on his blade, panting from the high amount of energy that attack took from him. As he caught his breath he stood back up and looked back at the she-elf. "That is the power of Light under faith." He puts on his widest boyish smile and leans his sword on his shoulder as if congratulation himself on a job well done.

Satogi's Light Blade struck the elemental with great effect, but it barely injured the apparition; it did, however stop him in its tracks, keeping him from charging Satogi.

The Chaos Elemental bellowed again, his deafening roar rattling the very bones within Satogi (-3 Attack for his next attack.) With little effort, he cast a blast of fiery ice in the paladin's direction, covering the hallway in frosted flames; and coating his target in icicles (-7 Speed, Minor DOT).

With his first target neutralized for now, he turned to Elyzabeth, refusing to let her escape. With a rough grunt, the Elemental teleported in her direction, placing itself in her path. With her escape blocked, he then casted a Mirror Image; a temporary double to surround her.

Satogi was bound to the floor by the ice that encased his legs, the burning cold making it hard to concentrate on anything else. Luckily enough for him the dark creature was more preoccupied with the elf now after it left him. Satogi grit his teeth and charged his blade again, stabbing at the ice to break it away and partially melt it with the light of his blade. It would take him too long to break free to help the elf but he could help her in a different way. Casting a bright sigil into his palm he marked the elf's back with it, and an invigorating sensation would spread from the marking. (Added Effect: Life-Link 50%)

Satogi turned back to freeing himself and kept hacking at the ice to save his now numb legs. One of the strikes of his sword sends another flash of light out into the hallways and he spots the original caster of the dark monster, but he could not tell if his remaining stamina would allow him to reach that far a distance with his attacks. He made no stop in his efforts to break the ice, finally cracking the frost and prying his leg out of it's prison. The second leg would take even more time, and by the end of it he felt drained of strength and needed to rest. Hopefully the fight between the elf and her adversary would be finished by this time, and so Satogi leaned against the wall with his legs and arms barely able to hold his weight off the ground.

Sanul snickered at the results of his actions, now approaching the tired paladin that held himself against the wall. Adjusting his grip on his scepter as he approached Satogi, he stood in front of him, a few feet out of the Believer's range. "Perfect," he muttered to himself.

Waving his scepter around in a subtle pattern, he spoke to his adversary in a soothing, womanly voice, "Oh, you poor thing. You seem a bit out of it, no?" Sanul's eyes began glowing a hot pink, as he used his influence to attempt to take over Satogi. "Let me help you up," Sanul continued, bolstering his enemy with a few sparks of his mana essence (Debuffs Removed). With a slightly sensual gesture, he then waved his specter around a bit more, as he saw Satogi's eyes become a glowing pink as well (Weakly Charmed).

"Perfect; he was tough to crack, but he's too feeble-minded to resist my mind games." Sanul gestured towards the elf Elyzabeth, and said "Get her." Quickly afterwards, Sanul ran up the stairs to the 2nd floor, hoping his little helper would stall long enough so they'd lose track of him.

Satogi, now under the temporary control of Sanul, joins the Elementals in the fight against the elf. Any amount of injury would snap him back into self-control.

Satogi felt something in his head as a figure approached, it felt wild and dark in his mind but a voice calmed him down and brought his exhaustion to a halt. He stood up straight and slowly tried to make out who was in front of him. "What?" He felt groggy and light headed but the voice made no danger apparent to him. The elf on the other hand suddenly seemed like a valid danger, and he was ordered to attack. In the back of his mind he fought the urge to lash out, he couldn't attack a stranger. Then again, he was warned about the false gods of other races and to be wary around them.

Lifting his sword shakily in the elf's direction he saw that he had no choice, he had to take her out now while she was distracted. Lunging at the elf with his blade, he was still rather sluggish but with each attack he made he got faster and faster. His eye's flashed pink as he made a battle-cry to fuel his attack with rage, cleaving the air where the elf would with a bright arc of pink light. This would normally confuse the paladin but right now all his attention was on the elf.

Elyzabeth fought the way she always did: Disinterested, annoyed, and impatient. It felt like she was swiping through air, but the chaos elemental's reactions to each cleave told her she was definitely doing some kind of damage, and the fact that its duplicate hadn't touched her convinced her it wasn't a threat. That's why, when footsteps approached, and a blade came, that she was caught so off-guard. Fortunately, she had been turning, so the stab came sidelong and cut into the back of her thigh without going through the leg. She turned further, weight uncomfortably shifted to one foot, swiping one blade wide to knock Satogi's aside while bringing her gauntleted fist around to catch his jaw or temple. "What the fuck?!" It wasn't the most eloquent inquiry but it about summarized her opinion of the situation. Her fighting style was rough, quick, an dirty; she took advantage of the narrow hallway by mixing in as many fists, elbows, and knees as she did stabs, rhythmically shifting her attention between Sanul's thrall and the paladin.

Satogi barely hit the elf with his first strike, but she got him over with her inhuman speed. He was just able to dodge her fist and jumped backwards before his face was caved in by her knuckles They sparred for several minutes, his sword and hers flashing with every connection. His armor stopped most of her strikes against him and would probably hurt her hand later when the adrenaline slowed down. He was about to start using his stamina again when she got in a good kick in between his armor's plating on his side and knocked the wind out of him. He snapped out of his daze when he was struck, and her next attack knocked him to his knees in front of her.

He didn't remember why they were fighting anymore, but he couldn't let her best him so easily. Seeing the construct about to attack Satogi narrowed his eyes at it and raised his blade once more. Lunging around the elf he charged his blade with light that burst into white flames, his war cry as he cut across it louder than the voice in his mind telling him he had used too much energy. When he hit the ground after his lunge he crumbled into a pile on the floor, his nose bleeding and his face against the floor. He lay still, passed out after using so much stamina. If the elf were to investigate him he would be found snoring from exhaustion.

Satogi's strike, however rendering him unconscious, did put an end to the Chaos Elemental; with a final screech, the beast fell over, and with a soft poofing sound, disintegrated into nothingness.

Elyzabeth turned with Satogi's lunge, expecting it to be targeted at her chest or stomach. She tried to bring one of her blades through his neck, but the swipe went over his head because he suddenly keeled over.
"What in the hells...?" She pointed one sword tip at his back, the other at the chaos elemental until it had entirely dissipated. "I didn't know it was possible to be this annoyed." She snaked the tip of her sword between Satogi's body and the strings of his coin purse, severing it and whatever else looked like it may hold valuables. She kicked them experimentally away, then slowly approached them, like they might turn into snakes or Satogi would recover from his exhaustion very suddenly. "If you attack me again, I will kill you," she warned what she didn't expect to be able to hear her anyway before pocketing her ill-gotten gains. She returned her swords to their scabbards and took a moment to catch her breath. Her left hand did throb, just below and behind the knuckle of her middle finger. She was content to leave Satogi at that, hiding her stolen valuables until she finally reached the staircase.
"And what the gods-be-damned nonsense is this?"

Elyzabeth pressed her left foot against the barrier experimentally. Nothing leaped out at her. "...huh." She backed away from it, and looked back down the hall at Satogi's unconscious body. She thought about trying to throw him through it. "Too heavy," she muttered to herself. She took another step back, then rummaged through her pouches until she found the runed obsidian she had found in the chest. She hucked it; the barrier shattered like glass where it was struck, with the little stone flying up onto the next floor, before it reformed behind it. "Elsir, what nonsense is this?" She crossed her arms and considered charging it, but she didn't know what would happen if it reformed before she passed all the way past the threshold. "I'll make the human do it," she decided. If he proved helpful, she'd consider returning his stolen possessions (still hidden by the latches on her belt). She turned away and carefully approached the fallen paladin. "Hey! Wake up!" She shoved him dispassionately with her heel, carefully training the point of one of her swords at his head in case he decided to attack again. "Get off your ass." She was content to wait; no way in all the hells was she going to take any risks with magic.

The paladin awoke on his back, unsure of what had transpired since his attack on the elemental. He was sore in almost every limb and part of his body, and his armor wasn't making him any more comfortable. The only thing he could see was light reflecting off of some metal on the ceiling that looked strangely like swords, but he couldn't focus his eyes enough to see anything else. He groaned and tried to roll onto his side to get up slowly, but he was cold and stiff. So he had to charge his armor to a subtle glow that helped warm him slightly and show more of the corridor. It was then he realized that the elf was still there and that the swords were actually much closer than he first perceived. He sighed and decided to stay on the ground for the time being.

[color=gold]"What do you want, she-elf? I am sure you have already taken everything you want from me if that is your intent." He suddenly widened his eyes and checked his belt for his sword, only to find it missing. Yes, she must have taken his father's sword along with the chainmail gloves and everything else he had. In short she could easily leave him for dead unable to fight his way out of the tower, and no food since she must have taken it herself. Sighing in defeat he laid there as he had nothing else he could do, she had taken everything from him including his dream of defeating the Tower.

Elyzabeth hadn't taken Satogi's sword, and had no idea what his gloves did for him. Maybe it was the concussion, or the shock of being bested by such a spriggy race. Either way, his hands definitely were covered in metal, and his father's sword was certainly in its sheathe. Only his small valuables had been pilfered, and for good reason. "Get up," she ordered, ignoring his accusation. "Now." She pointed at the stairs. "Go."
Of course, they'd find that there no longer was a barrier, but Elyzabeth saw no point in taking risks. "Walk." She pointed at the thresh hold, not bothering to let Satogi know what hidden danger might exist. "Or I throw your dead body through it."

With little else he could do but die or follow orders, Satogi sighs and stands on his feet after a little trouble. He didn't really see a way out of the situation so he might as well do as he was told. At least it would have gotten to the second floor but it was a small achievement. What the elf was asking of him wasn't the problem, it was the fact that he had already been beaten without having made past that point. He had wanted to defeat the tower in one go without having to submit to anyone, but it seemed that dream was gone. Moving up the stairs he slips up the stairs to the second floor, unsure what the future had for him.





Koko Magenta



The front doors to the Tower slowly opened as a young blonde boy peeked his way into the building. He was almost paranoid as he walked slowly into the area. He drew a quick symbol in the air with his finger, a line of blue light following the pattern and becoming a sigil which floated in front of him and started shining enough light for the boy to see. He hated the dark and was deathly frightened of it. The young mage looked to be about 14 years old and was dressed in a Bretanian mage uniform, his blonde hair and blue eyes showing the status of his family tree as one of high standing. Though he seemed to be out of place as he explored the first floor of the Tower, trying to avoid detection and get to the staircase as soon as possible.

Koko began wandering about the Tower, albeit with fear fueling his search of the stairs upwards.

Almost immediately, Koko found an impressively rare item thrown about the floor, beside a dusty bookshelf; a Tome, an ancient book containing a plethora of information. This Tome was titled: "Wizard 102: Transferring Wounds With A Simple Touch, written by the Demon Saints Cult." Inside was all the information a caster would need to learn the Leech spell; a powerful encantation that allows the drainage of health via direct skin-to-skin contact. This drain would become stronger as the hold is sustained, and can drain an indefinite amount of life force as long as contact is not broken. The spell may only be cast once on an opponent; a leeched opponent cannot be leeched again.

The Tome would take some time to read, however, and would require Koko's attention to learn from.


Meanwhile, a few dozen feet away, the doors to the Tower re-opened as another challenger arrived. A cloaked man, with little noise, ran into the Tower, only leaving a whooshing sound as he sprinted around with impressive stealth; Jeremiad, professional criminal. It wasn't his first time here; once a month, he raided the lower floors for pocket money. But once a year, he challenged himself; how many people could he rob in one trip?

He quickly saw his first target; a young caster, shivering slightly as he looked about the halls. Too easy; looks like he was luckier than usual. He began following him as closely as possible without giving himself away. If his victim ever suspected him, he'd stand still, and his magic stealthing cape would render him almost invisible.

Elyzabeth waited, halfway down the staircase, for the grumbling paladin to cross the threshold. There was a disappointing lack of explosions and/or fiery deaths, meaning she had wasted her time making him her trap tester.
The second floor landing had several branching paths. Elyzabeth left Satogi with his swords and food. She returned the one she had drawn to its sheathe, deciding that if she was going to be attacked again, he'd have already tried something. She narrowed the beam on her lantern, pointing it down a hallway at random. It had something small and shiny halfway to a sharp turn. "You go that way." She pointed, and pushed him in the direction. "I'm going to go a different way. I don't want to see you again. Do you understand?"
With that, she executed a left-face and took a hallway at random. Satogi was lucky she didn't just run him through for attacking her. Bastard's lucky I opened with my right-hook. Now where's the cunt that threw that monster at me?

Satogi was not only angry with the elf, but he was rather embarrassed about the whole thing. He could do little about his situation and all because of a lapse in focus. He supposed it was his own fault but he had to keep his pride strong in his order of light. He was pushed and forced down a single hallway, which he cared nothing for. As soon as the elf took he leave Satogi started emitting light from his armor once again, so he could see where he was going. If the elf didn't want to see him again than she should have killed him instead, it was inevitable that they would run into each other in the Tower again, but he couldn't complain.

Drawing his sword and letting it show him the way, he explored the second floor a little before deciding that he had to find a safer place to set up his base. He found a smaller room with a door, lock or no lock it was safer than sleeping in the hallways. He ate some rations and tried to find a comfortable spot in the room to sleep, with his sword drawn at his side and ready for him to kill anything that dared enter his claimed domain. The light of his armor and sword faded to near nothing as he drifted off to a light sleep, but would spark back up quickly if he was startled by something.
