Summary
Image

The night of the Samhain was a turning point for witch laying dormant and unaware in the small village by the name of Austere. As the veil between the dead and the living thinned so did the protections of the villages against the fearsome Fey wavered. Deep within the forest a ritual was made to awaken the unknowing witches to their dormant powers.

Indeed, one love old witch lived in the forest and was on her dying night. Filled with resentment against the villagers that shunned her and a desire to pass on her knowledge, she laid down the last of her life-force and brought power dormant to the surface, starting a chain of events that shook the whole area in a shower of dark energies. Girls between the age of eight and twenty were suddenly aware of a change within themselves then and strange occurrences prompted them to be publicly hailed as witches, indeed, but a day later they were to be burned in the village square but managed to escape into the dark Devil's Forest. There, their new lives would start.



The Game:
Image

Think of this as a mix or a Choose Your Own Adventure and a Freeform Roleplay in that I will sometimes guide you through a world of my making and throw various obstacles and mystery at you that you will have to overcome for various rewards. We will start in a conundrum of danger and mystery so be prepared!

Do however know that Death is not the end but hold consequences.

Witches have a great variety of powers but since your character just awakened hers she can't control or even manifest them very well. the use of grimoires and the aid of the Fey are needed for further deepening and unlocking of these powers.

Guttural chanting reverberated in the dark forest as merriment resounded in the air from the nearby village of Austere as an old crone summoned her servants. One by one they appeared from the lowliest of Changeling to Queen Farbentel herself, the queen of the Unseelie of the forest. Long has this night of the Samhain been awaited by the inhabitant of the dark and terrible land of the Fey as the old crone was the dreaded witch Gretchel, the Mistress of the Devil's Forest and the last remaining chain upon the dark Fey's malicious ankles.

The Fey made a circle around the old witch and started to chant with her, unwillingly summoning the dormant powers of younger witches of the area. Various creatures inhabiting the forest cried and growled, merging their own power to the ritual as the village was flooded with dark powers, strings of magic going into the very soul of young girls of the village and awakening something deep inside some of them. As her chanting grew more desperate, the old witch hoped that at least one of these girls would answer her call.

That was how a young maid found herself suddenly the worst enemy of the village that saw her grow, her terrified cry and frenzied running into the forest heard by a young man, the witch's son, that was tasked with the protection of the forest's sanctity. With her last breath, the old crone of a witch banished her servant back to their trees and thorns, giving her successor a night of respite but no more...

Valeria ran as fast and hard as her feet could take her. She pulled her long skirts out of the way of her feet and clung to the bag thrown over her arm. Running into the forest wasn't a conscious decision -- it was instinct. She paid no heed to brush that scraped her ankles, nor to the cool air that sank into her body. She only ran, ran, ran until she could no longer breathe.

When she collapsed in the clearing, that was whens he felt it -- the chill in her skin, the stinging in her lungs, and most of all, the jabbing pain in her feet. She lay there on the earth and curled around her bag and tried to regain the power of coherent thoughts. As much as her feet hurt, she was alive. She was really still alive. She sat up, looking over her shoulder, and wondered how long she had been here.

Adamah was speaking to his house when he heard the message, It came in a rustle through the leaves. "Really? what an oddity." he murmured under his breath. he stroked the inside of the tree where he lived as he picked up his staff, and a opening stretched wide in front of him. he stepped out and relaxed as his bare feet touched the ground. Turning around to face the massive tree that was his house, he whispered a few words, and ran his hand from the top of the opening to the bottom, shutting it as if it were a zipper. He took a breath, and looked around. Apparently there were people in his home, and he was in need of discharging them immediately. he deftly caught a leave that was blowing around him in circles. "Show me the way." he breathed, pressing it to his lips.

It blew away, flying through the air in an erratic path, but keeping in a generally straight direction. he followed it, running swiftly as the wind, and even more gracefully. His grassy robe pulling behind him like a ribbon marked the path he had taken moments before. Soon, he came to a girl curled up on the ground. She looked tired and beaten, almost dead in fact. after a few minutes, she awoke and sat up. She looked around as if frightened of something, but did not see him. His robe looked very much like a dead tree covered in moss, so he was very used to going unnoticed. In fact, he preferred it. after a moment of observing the girl, he spoke, "Why are you here?"

The villager's torches and bellows grew faint as the girl ran and, slowly, all went silent but for the ambient sound of the menacing forest as she collapsed on the cold muddy ground in a small clearing exhausted, wounded and afraid.

Her wounds would have to be treated soon else they would infect and potentially leads to the loss of her feet but for now Valeria was safe. Technically, that is, as the night was cold and the Devil's Forest was notorious for being the deadliest in the realm, full of dark fey and other more feral creature, each more bloodthirsty than the other. That fact of life was hammered into the mind of every child of the village and no other place generated more terror than the forest.

The young woman would have various things to do before she was to be even thinking of being safe. She should heal her wounds, find a shelter and find warmer clothing than the ragged dress she wore, not to mention that it was starting to rain. Indeed, the dark moonless sky cracked open and down poured a torrent of cold and stinging water as was the usual in that time of the year when harvest was in it's full swing. Food was also needed, of course and so did water.

Valeria had to act, and fast as various howls and skittering could be heard in the dark confines of the forest. No apparent trail were visible in the darkness but a great three had a decent groove in it's roots, maybe even good enough to act as a shelter with enough luck and material. Was it safe so close to the ground, however?

Suddenly, a voice was heard: 'Why are you here?' A friend, or a foe?

At the sound of the man's voice, Valeria bolted upright. She looked around and considered running again, but when she studied the stranger, she realized she didn't recognize him. Maybe he wasn't from the town. Aside from that, now that the adrenaline had worn off, she wasn't sure if she could run. She could see a little blood seeping through the bottoms of her shoes. They were mere cloth-- no match for a forest floor of jagged rocks and sticks.

Valeria winced as she rearranged herself. "I'm here because--" She paused. "I'm here because I can't go home." She shuddered as the torrent began. Each drop stung like a frozen needle. She looked at the man again, and the tears in her eyes mixed with rain. "I don't know where to go. Even here is better than there." For the moment, her exhilaration turned to fear.

Adamah almost pitied the girl. she had no clue where she was. if she did, she would be begging to go back to her home. he stared at the girl for a long time, trying to make a decision. He could kill her right here, that would be no problem. but there was something strange about killing a girl who did not even have the strength to stand. he never had to do it before, so he never considered the possibility. After what felt like an eternity of deliberation, he stepped down to where she was, frowning at her. "I hope you can walk. I really do not want to carry you."

After a moment for the girl to find her footing, the duo walked slowly under the pouring rain as they made their way through unseen and faint trails unknown to anyone but the man and his deceased mother. It took nearly an hour as the young woman limbed and tripped over root and the man took the time to talk to his verdant companions on the way, but they arrived.

The clearing was inhabited by an hut that seemed nearly completely hidden by thorns and vines. The construct was made of solid stone and wood but still seemed to be in disrepair as a strange circle in the muddy soil near it's left slowly disappeared under the relentless pour. This was the old witch Gretchel's hut, as could be seen by the corpse of the woman near an end of the circle.

Indeed, Valeria could walk, but it took time. She cringed with each step. "Where are we going?" she asked, glancing up at the man from time to time. She had been told never to talk to strangers, but now the whole village was a stranger to her. She might die here, but she would surely die there. Thus, she kept quiet and walked where she was led.

As Valeria spotted the unkempt house, right in the thick of the dreaded forest, she had to ask, "Do people really live here?" Next, she saw the woman. Valeria began to ask if she was alright, but the stiffness and stillness of her body was unmistakable. The woman looked like a bird Valeria had once seen crumpled atop the winter snow. Valeria covered her mouth and backed up a few steps. "What happened?"

Adamah was frustrated by the pace they were moving. he was tempted to throw the girl over his shoulder, it was taking so long. Or even better, he could just end her and go back to his home. but he gritted his teeth and bared it. after what seemed like hourse to him, they finally reached their destination. He scowled at the girl, "Shut it. I am doing you a favor merely by not killing you, let alone going through all the trouble of actually helping you. The least you could do in return is keep your mouth shut. Unless I say you can speak." His patience was running thin, but he knew that this girl was most likely important. "My mother just died last night. and the next day you show up running from your own village. There are no coincidences." He said this slowly with a forced calm as he looked at his mother's corpse. "You are one of her successors. Make yourself at home." he added the last part as sarcastically as he could.

The hut was a simple one with a wooden door engraved with strange writings that were in fact protective runes and one window closed by shutters inscribed with the same strange language. The walls were made of clay and stones in a circle of approximatively thirty feet in diameter and were covered with hay and branches for a roof with twine and mud to keep it waterproof.

The interior was simple with two cots made of hay and furs of some animals near the wall and a great cauldron over a fire pit bubbling in the center of the dirty room. A broom for tidying was near the door as was various cooking utensil as well as various shelves with what seemed like grimoires on the walls.

The mixture in the cauldron seemed to be stew and smelled heavenly to the starved girl. The cots were tempting as well.

Valeria's eyes widened at the man's words. She opened her mouth to reply but said nothing. Instead, she slunk inside the house. Her body relaxed as she approached the bubbling cauldron. Even if she was walking to her death, at least it would be a warm one. She glanced back at the man, but she could wait no longer. She found a bowl and filled it. After all, he had said, "Make yourself at home."

Taking a seat on one of the cots, Valeria studied her surroundings while filling her mouth with stew. She had never seen so many books! "A successor," she found herself saying, despite the way the man snapped at her. She got up to take a closer look at the books, but before she got there, she winced and lifted one foot. Peeling off the shoe, she looked around for something to bandage herself.

He sighed and followed the girl inside. he watched her do exactly as he said, despite the fact that he clearly did not mean it. He sat down on the cot net to her, leaning his staff on his shoulder. He reached inside of his robe and pulled out a small bag. "Give me your feet." He said curtly, opening the bag to show that it contained an odd green ooze.

The stew seemed to have strange magical attributes as Valeria felt herself relaxing and felt her wound hurt a little bit less as the stew warmed her insides in a delicious melange of spices, vegetable and meat. Soon, the bowl was empty, as was the one filled soon after and the girl gingerly gave her feet to the man before her and let him go about his self inflicted task.

Adamah for his part did go about his task meticulously, first washing the feet with his gourd and applying the ooze on the other's wound. An odd sound them came from the concoction as it sizzled and knitted the wound closed, leaving the young witch drowsy with both her warm meal and the soporific effect or her remedy.

A howl resounded outside but it was late and the cot were oh so inviting... Morever, she felt incredibly safe in this small hut.

Valeria was unharmed but incredibly tired.

Under normal circumstances, Valeria would have marveled at the way her wound closed itself with no more than an application of ointment, but her eyes could hardly stay open. The day had held far too much exertion and excitement for her to be able to resist -- she had never felt so tired in her life. She put her head down on the cot and closed her eyes for a mere moment before she dropped into slumber, one she was not likely to awaken from anytime soon.

once the girl fell asleep, Adamah looked at her for the first time with something other than resentment. He truly pitied the girl, and her fate. But the only way to keep himself from growing too attached was to treat her with anything but kindness. The only reason he even healed her feet was so that she would not be completely helpless, needing him for everything. But now that she was asleep and could not know how he felt, he allowed himself to soften.
"Lennavanmo Lennavanmo who is it swinging you to and fro
With a long low swing and a sweet low croon
loving words of a mother's rune
Lennavanmo Lennavanmo who is it swinging you to and fro.

I am thinking it is an Angel fair
The Angel that looks on the gulf from the lowest stair.
And swings the green world upward by its leagues of sunshine hair
Lennavanmo Lennavanmo who swingeth you and the Angel to and fro.

It is he whose faintest thought is a world afar
It is He whose wish is a seven-mooned leaping star
It is He Lennavanmo to whom you and I and all things flow
Lennavanmo Lennavanmo
It is only a little wee lass that you are
Eilidh mo chree
But as This wee blossom has roots in the depths of the sky,
So you are one with the Lord of Eternity
Bonny wee lass that you are, my morning star,
Elidh mo chree, Lennavanmo Lennavanmo."

He sang deeply and slowly, lacing his words with magic. His voice sounded like the rustle of leaves as he calmed her spirit, and called the trees to protect them for the night. He never stopped rubbing her feet as he sang.

When he finished, he looked at her again, "I am so sorry for what will happen. But I will not always be able to help you."

In the morning, Valeria woke with a start. She seized and wrung her blanket. This was not her room. This was not her home. Soon, her memories returned, and her grip on the blanket relaxed. Rubbing her face, she let her feet hit the ground. She hesitated, shifting weight onto the foot slowly, but her eyes fluttered as she felt no pain. She turned her sole up, and it was as if no cut had ever been there. The man's spell really had worked.

Speaking of the man, she hopped out of bed and looked around. "Morning," she said, voice soft. With the shutters closed, she could not tell what time it was. She felt her way across the room and fumbled for candle and match.

"It is about time you woke up, girl." Adamah sat near the hearth, and shifted a few embers so that the fire caught the fresh wood he had just placed on top. soon, the room filled with the soft orange glow. "I am leaving. Don't touch her body." he spoke as he stood up and walked toward the door. he needed to talk to the plants nearby, it has been quite some time since he had been here, and they may need to tell him what has happened since his last visit. "And don't get into trouble. If you need me, follow the leaves in the wind, but not the wind itself. Only bother me if you absolutely have to." He said over his shoulder walking out the door.

Re: Witch's Diary

I can only speak for myself, but I'm fine with it. Characters naturally evolve as they encounter more things. Valeria is a pretty new character, so I can't say for sure how she'll end up. Right now, she's obviously really naive. xD

Re: Witch's Diary

sorry I keep changing his personality. I normally do not do that. I think I am done now.

Re: Witch's Diary

It's all good from my point of view :)!

Re: Witch's Diary

Don't worry, if I have any suggestions, I'll let you know!

I hope that first post is suitable. If I misunderstood anything, please let me know.

Re: Witch's Diary

Alright, I doubt I'll get another player in a while so we may as well start and lure them with our awesome rping x3! Let'S begin!

Re: Witch's Diary

That makes me happy, but please don't hesitate to ask if you want something in here, I'm flexible in my ideas :)!

On another note, the first post is in the work!

Re: Witch's Diary

I'm just excited in general, I think. The way you plan to run this -- with survival aspects and choose-your-own adventure style -- sounds really interesting. I look forward to exploring this spooky, dangerous world.

Re: Witch's Diary

Feedback time!

What would you like to see in this game?

Re: Witch's Diary

You're accepted :)! I'll wait for a day or two in hope of more will apply and then we'll start.

Re: Witch's Diary

I'm trying to work up a witch character sheet. :)

Re: Witch's Diary

This RP seriously needs Witches, I made an exception but no more until the slots are -all- filled!

Re: Witch's Diary

Go right ahead, I'm happy you are interested :)!

Re: Witch's Diary

I'm going to PM you about a character idea in a few minutes, if that is alright.

Re: Witch's Diary

Sorry, the rp takes place in the forest where no one would set foot without a reason or get permanently dead really fast :(.

Re: Witch's Diary

Could I make a character that is not a witch? Like a guy?

Re: Witch's Diary

Yes, the ritual only awakened the females. There COULD be male later on, though, but there should be another ritual.

Re: Witch's Diary

Just out of curiosity, are the only players you are accepting the female witches?

Re: Witch's Diary

When you are accepted please wait for my introducing post before going on ahead! This is a guided story even though you can do what you want, let me give you some information before rushing in, you will regret it otherwise!
