War of Magic I

The human magic users require a lot of knowledge and information to grow stronger. This knowledge takes a long time to acquire and thus those who already have access to it are in a much better position to ascend in power. Thus, the magic users from the great Houses of the Magi are usually more powerful than the others.

The Seven, or the Council of Seven, is a council of the seven leaders of the most prestigious and powerful of the houses. These houses hoard the power and every member is required to submit his life's work to the house. Every house-member has the house's surname, and most of them are focused in certain powerful bloodlines. There are some people adopted to the houses, however. The council regulates magic and acts as one against outside forces, but there are certain bitter rivalries between the houses. The symbol of the whole council is a circle, divided in seven parts. The house crest has this symbol with the house's own symbol in the middle of it, and the symbol of the council has the symbols of the houses in their own slices of the circle.

The seven houses each have a leader, whose title refers to the house's special knowledge. The titles are:


Caster's house is the house of Lethan. Their symbol is a teardrop and their specialty is special magical places, areas with a high concentration of magic.

Magician's house is Mithar and their symbol is an ancient rune, literally meaning 'magic'. Their specialty is a wide variety of different spells. Cessie's house.

Wizard's house is Raken and their symbol is a spellbook. Their specialty is the study of new and more powerful spells. They have the best researchers of all houses.

Sorcerer's house is Yuran and their symbol is a crystal ball on a pedestal. Their specialty is the use of one's inner magic source and thus the wordless spells one can use even while muted.

Warlock's house is Khares and their symbol is a crooked dagger. Their specialty is war, and the warmages of this House are feared all over human-controlled lands.

Shaman's house is Tarken and their symbol is a branch turning into a hand. Their specialty is nature and the magical powers one can affect it with and derive from it.

Conjurer's house is Shin and their symbol is an emerald. Their specialty is using magic to modify the abilities of items and pouring their own magical energy inside them. They are known for having a large collection of jewels filled with magical energy, and they are said to possess enough power to utterly destroy any of the other houses in one shot. Afterwards they would be less powerful than most, though.


A short while after Deat taps on the frozen door of the Inn, it begins to shudder.

The Northman took a sudden step back from the door after it shook.  He then composed himself and forced the door open to whoever was stuck in the freezing rain.

"Oh thank gods" A voice says from the darkness outside. A figure caked in ice quickly steps into the warmth and light of the tavern. "I thought I was going to freeze to death out there." The woman complains, pulling down the hood of her cloak and shaking the ice out of her hair.

Karen notices the stranger enter the inn, How many people are there here anyway? This place was supposed to be deserted....

She tries to pull the cowl further down her face, its important that no one except Nathan recognize her here. It could ruin the whole set up.

She frown as she make place for the newcomer.

Nathan glances up at the sudden chill, glancing over his shoulder at the newcomer. The young vampire's eyes narrow slightly, annoyed at yet another interruption, before turning back to the fireplace. With one hand, he makes sure his cloak's elongated collar is still in place, the fabric forming a tube around his chin to hide his lips.

Deat chuckled at the newcomer.

Aye,  you would have too if you had stayed out there much longer
.  He nodded his head to the other two.  Those two are lucky that I had been here.  They were a good ways away when the storm started.

Deat bowed.

My name is Deat Justinian.  And I do hope you'll introduce yourself unlike the others.

The newcomer stops shaking the ice out of her clothes long enough to retun the bow. "My name's Kiara. Nice to meet you."

Karen nodded briefly in Kiara's direction. She had just wanted to continue the discussion she had with Nathan, but with all these people around it would be impossible to keep it a secret.

The glanced over at Kiara again and decided to say a few words of greeting (just to be polite).

"Greetings Kiara, it is nice to meet you too. I'm Anya and this is-
*she lets Nathan finish that sentence*

Nathan gives the two new humans a subtle glare, wishing they would just go away so he could finish his business and go home before the sun rose. Uncle Phillip did not expect him to be gone for more than a night. And Uncle Phillip wasn't the kind of man who liked to be wrong.
"I'm David." The boy says, lying as well. He watched them for a little bit longer, before returning his gaze to the fireplace, trying to melt the ice off his cloak.

"Well met." Kiara nods to them before shaking out her cloak and hanging it on a peg near the door.

Deat nods and takes a seat on a nearby stool. Now that we are all introduced, I only have one question.

Why were you all out here in the first place?

I can at least take care of myself, speaking as he nods towards his weapons but the three of you look like a little pack of Grizzly Bears could run you off.

"Oh, we were just passing by David and I when we got caught in the rain." As she utter those words it looks like she realizes something.

She quickly continues "These ruins seemed to be good enough to stay at, we didn't knew anyone-" She pauses looking directly at Deat trying to see his reaction "lived here?"
