Approved by Lightwolf The city was abandoned. More than half of the combatants had been killed, while others had fled for their life. All that remained was the Norse god Tyr, the Chinese princess Sun Shang Xiang, and the wizards that had summoned them. Four dead handmaidens surround the one armed knight. He had dispatched Sun Shang Xiang's servants, but from a distance her arrows were wearing him down. Gelu and Yu Ji, Tyr and Sun Shang Xiang's masters respectively, mustered the last magical reserves they could. They both had the same idea; fire. The weakened champions were knocked out, but not dead. Both wizards stopped for a moment to catch their breath. It was only a matter of time before one champion bled to death, ending the tournament. Yu Ji struggled to produce the spark of magic once more, but his reserves had emptied. Suddenly, Gelu stood up and dashed towards his opponent. He struck the old man right in the face. However, his opponent was not so weak as he had thought. Yu Ji fought back, driving his younger opponent away. The finest competition of magical prowess had now descended to fisticuffs. Punched in the gut, Gelu reeled backwards and tripped over his own champion's leg. As Yu Ji came in to finish him, he picked up Tyr's shield and slammed it across the old wizard's head, knocking him out. Gelu got up, grabbed a sword from one of the handmaidens, and finished off Sun Shang Xiang. With this he won Philosopher's Stone War and was granted half of the stone by Nicholas Flamel, to be used as he sees fit. That was 10 years ago. From all walks of life. From all over the world. But most importantly, hidden. You are a Mage. You have toiled in secret your whole life to master an art and science long forgotten. Amesbury, Wiltshire, England. June, 2021. Flamel." You receive this message, vague to an outsider, but something hundreds of Magi yearn for their whole life. You have been chosen to participate in the ritual to create a new Philosopher's Stone. You know that this is not a bloodless ritual. You will fight seven other Magi, and only one will come out alive. However, the stone grants unlimited wealth and immortality. But for most Magi, the allure is in using the most powerful summoning magic in existence, the summoning of heroic champions. As I said before, knowledge of pathfinder or the D20 system is not a requirement to play this game. All you need is creative problem solving skills. Big note: IRC is super required. Being in the IRC channel on a regular basis means that events can be run super fast if both players involved are in the channel. In fact, when you sign up please hop on over to #Flamel so I can confirm your ability to use IRC. A spell list and magic, combat, order spell guide will be posted below. This is an 8 player game. I welcome players from the last game, but I'd also like some new faces.
