@pinkosock TOMO'S TRAVELING INN
THE IDEA OF AN ENCHANTED FLYING BAR, TAVERN, INN, OR HOTEL IS NOT A NEW ONE-- WIZARDS HAVE LONG USED SUCH PROJECTS AS AN ARCANE FORM OF CONSPICUOUS CONSUMPTION, A FLEXING OF ONE'S ABILITY AKIN TO KNIGHTS COMPARING BATTLE TROPHIES OF SLAIN FOES.
TOMO'S INN MAY WELL HAVE BEGUN AS A SIMILARLY JUVENILE USE OF SPELLCRAFT, BUT ALONG THE WAY TOMO HIMSELF REALIZED-- TO HIS OWN SURPRISE AS MUCH AS ANYONE'S-- THAT HE WAS ARGUABLY AS TALENTED AN INNKEEPER AS HE WAS A MAGE.
@toydragon MAGES TYPICALLY BUILD TOWERS FOR A PURPOSE.
SELDOM IS A MAGIC TOWER BUILT SOLELY TO BE A HOME.
THERE IS NO GRANDIOSE MAGICAL HISTORY TO THE NAMELESS TOWER ON THE SOUTHERN SHORE OF LAKE OLIGOR. IT POSSESSES PROFICIENT BUT BASIC ARTIFICE, LONG-LASTING BUT UNREMARKABLE WARDS.
THE MAGICAL INTELLIGENCE WHICH COURSES THROUGH ITS WALLS IS AMENABLE AND GENTLE BY NATURE, FOR TO SIMPLY *BE* IS ALL THAT HAS BEEN ASKED OF IT.
IT IS, SIMPLY, A HOME.
@req THE SPIRES OF THE SERACT ARCHIVES
THE SERACT ORDER ARE A FURTIVE AND ISOLATED COLLECTIVE OF ALCHEMISTS. LEGEND ASCRIBES COUNTLESS MIRACLES TO THEIR WORK, INCLUDING THE HISTORICAL ERADICATION OF SEVERAL PLAGUES BEFORE THEY COULD TRULY BEGIN TO SPREAD.
OTHER TALES ARE MORE FANTASTIC, INCLUDING CLAIMS THAT THE SERACT HOLD THE SECRET TO ETERNAL LIFE (TRUE), THAT THEY CAN TRANSMUTE WATER INTO PURE MANA (FALSE), AND THAT THE ARCHIVES DO NOT TRULY EXIST, AND ARE ONLY A DESERT MIRAGE (HALF TRUE)
@bees THE TILCROFT ESTATE.
A RARITY AMONG MAGICAL DWELLINGS, THE CENTRAL ARCANE TOWER OF THE TILCROFT ESTATE IS FULLY SURROUNDED BY NON-MAGICAL URBAN SPRAWL.
THE TWINS, BALARA AND GHISLAINE TILCROFT, CALL IT HOME.
THEIR MUTUAL SKILL AT MAGIC FAR EXCEEDED THAT OF ANYONE IN THEIR FAMILY HISTORY. THEY BECAME LICHES BY AGE 19, AND PROMPTLY SEQUESTERED THEMSELVES FROM THE WORLD WITHIN AN EVER-EXPANDING TOWER, BUILT WITH SEEMINGLY NO ENTRANCES.
THEY REFUSE ALL CONTACT, BUT ENJOY WATCHING THE CITY.
@cicatriz_jdr MOSSFIRE TOWER.
DESPITE ITS APPEARANCES, MOSSFIRE IS NOT PARTICULARLY ANCIENT. ITS NAMESAKE GROWTHS AND RESULTANT CRUMBLING STONE MASONRY ARE-- IN FACT-- THE PRODUCT OF A UNIQUE APPLICATION OF THAUMATURGY-- THAT IS TO SAY, LONGFORM SPELLCRAFT.
THE TOWER WAS CONSTRUCTED FROM STANDARD MATERIALS, BUT EMBEDDED WITH THOUSANDS MAGICALLY INFUSED SEEDS IN POCKETS OF SOIL.
OVER THE NEXT CENTURY, THE PLANTLIFE WILL COMPLETELY REPLACE THE STONE, A TOWER OF SOLELY ENCHANTED VEGETATION.
uriel: so we're going to give you two lamens
uriel: the first lamen will be a false one. just absolute demonic shit. do not use that lamen if you don't want your ass kicked from here to antioch. the second will be the right one and that's the one you should use
dee: could you just not give me the first lamen
uriel: what's that

what what's the situation with esvrld?? i'm so out of the loop
esvrld made a post that from what i hear could be construed as credible confession to helping stalin orchestrate a famine in ukraine (i'm afraid i can't make heads or tails of it...), a bunch of people called xer out, past bad behaviour by esvrld surfaced, and now the shitposters are screenshot dunking HimmlerFan88's blog post about it in retaliation
ah, so there's more going on than appears at first sight. always guacamole in the taco with these people
