It was a dark and stormy night; shadows danced about the torches. They stood watch, ever vigilant, over the sleeping denizens of the castle below. Damn, that was a good movie. I’ll have to watch it again sometime! But on a brighter note! Apparently hitting level 85 on a mage makes you a Mage! Well, in my case, a Lunargent Thorne! A.K.A.: A pain in the ass? If you ever thought it was difficult just keeping your schedule straight and being on time for things as a college student, you’re right! And you’re life is sad! Because unlike me, you can’t do anything about it! HA! I only kid! Well, I really am only a kid! I’m barely 19! I can’t even drink yet, but I can Know, Compel, Unveil, Rule, Veil, and Shield Time and Fate! O.o; This is crazy sauce! And best yet! I can’t really tell anyone! Well, other Mages are alright to tell! But apparently some of them are also Nephandies (left hand path mages, evil!)! This is crazy! But so totally awesome!
I will become the greatest Librarian Ever! R.O.D. will have nothing on me (insert maniacal laughing here)!!!
I started off Awakening while playing WoW, ya… it was my first time playing it too. My friends finally convinced me to try it, and what do I get? Access to only the most powerful stuff in existence? WTF!?!? Luckily Gustov saw the event, and showed up to rescue me! And a rescue it was! Shit would have gone WRONG without his tutelage! He mentored me for a few months in the ways of being a true Mage. By the end of it, I was at least an apprentice in half the Arcanum! Not bad for a newbie, right?
Seems I’ve also gained a Familiar, I named him Kodex. He’s a really awesome Cat! Definitely amazing!
So, after finishing my training under Gustov, I was introduced to the other students of his Cabal. They placed us together as a Cabal ourselves, that we named the Drinkers of Aleph! Pretty spiffy name if you ask me! Jack, Dina, Mobius, and myself! We have a home that is our territory as a Cabal, with a Hallow, and what we have dubbed the Haven. So far, we all seem to get along rather well, and work together even better! I’ve taken up the role as the Cabal’s Librarian of course, and have made a GIANORMOUS Cabal Grimoire for us to use. I have filled the first 200 pages with amazing basic information that will forever more be useful! And always be able to be used to help give us a start on almost any project. Mobius helped find the right information to put in there as well. He also helped put in the first selection of Rotes to be recorded into it as well.
I had to retrieve an Artifact from a Sleeper as my task for joining the Free Council. It was pretty easy. Doesn’t even really warrant more reference than that. So I am now officially a member of the Free Council! HUZZAH!
Other than that, there’s been this guy named Tom. I’ve watched him do some strange things. Like purposefully leaving freshly dry cleaned jackets and a discarded path tool for the Adamantine Arrow to find. Well, we found it first, before I saw him put them there. (Hello, Acanthus! I can do things like that!) Well, Mobius and I have been working on figuring out Tom’s M.O., and piecing together the puzzle.
The other fun puzzle was the whole Eron thing. Dead boy not dead! He’s like a ‘familiar’ to a ghost, that brought him back. The refer to themselves as the Bound. They aren’t mages, so we can’t say too much about our side of things, even though he’s been rather open so to say. But he’s also not really a sleeper anymore, since he’s no longer under the Lie… its confusing. But eh, things happen.
I’ve been enjoying the Jade Buddha, Kathleen has been my waitress there, she’s a student of fashion. She doesn’t know anyone in the area, so I’m trying to be nice and friendly with her. Across the street though, there’s a guy named Christopher! He work’s in the occult shop there named the Dusty Tome. Picked up some really good finds in there so far! And definitely want to work on being his friend! So far, I know I amuse him, hooray for being an Apprentice of Mind! He’s studying for a degree in the metaphysical field. I’ll be heading down there again before the week is out. Gotta make a shopping list of books to pick up as I can. Not like I get a lot of money for the month, but eh, 700$ is more than nothing! The great thing is, I can totally do my homework while doing something else just fine now!
Kodex loves the pictures in the journal’s that the mentors gifted us. It was the starting point of our library (for the Cabal). I sanctified us as a Cabal through Fate itself. If anyone breaks the tenants of the Cabal, or basically betrays us, they will lose from their mind any and all knowledge of the Cabal and its members, and be forced to leave the area of the Cabal. We, as a whole, agreed upon the Cabal Charter and what all it depicted. Mobius helped put it into legalease [ sic ]!
Alright, I’ve been writing this while reading my homework assignment, which I just finished btw, so I think its time for a snack! HUZZAH! I’ll write more in my Grim-Kept-Thoughts, or GKT for short, later!
