Testing Prowess (Raven's Tale).




- Testing Prowess. -



After a meditation & prayers to my godess, Shar, were complete - i went to test my new powers.

Spells were succesfully cast, but i need to find enchanted studded leather armouur that does not hinder arcane spellcasting.

Mage Armour was an invisible barrier for combat, my greatsword was set aflame.

In Nars Pass found a straying zombie, and after a short combat rendered it's bones and flesh burnt and inert.

Without much of excitement offered this test of prowess to Shar, and went on my way.

-- Raven.




- An offering. -

Animi Vidi Tenebrae Incarna (Raven's Tale).



Meditating before Shar's Altar.


... i've meditated before the Altar of Shar in Oscura, i've seen the darkness incarnation in my Mind's Eye.

... a sweet sinister chant in my mind soothed pains, troubles flew away - and i felt a power transfer from Godess to me.

'Song of darkness, song of fire,
Living torment, mind's desire'.


... soon after, energy centers in my mind and body opened, energy channels were aflow.

... i've felt unholy rush and an ecstasy, and new powers awakened in me.

... now i can send rays of necrotic energy at our foes, can set my weapons aflame.

... mage armour spell lasts longer now, as well.

-- Raven.

A Poem - Tribute to Attentus.

Dear Journal,

My chores at Ashald's Park flowered with Arts, for i have a new Poem, written by myself, guided by insights.

'There is moonlight,
There are shadows,
Poison tear,
At meadow.

Many planes,
Many worlds,
So challenging,
Forces there.

Who is hero?
... he who suffers,
Love victorious,
Against Forces.'



it's a tribute to my Master, Attentus.

... i've glimpsed that even when he was aware how heroic he is, it brought him no light.

i doubt this poem's quality is enough considering the torments that Attentus went through, but it's only what i have for now.

... i wish to improve in Arts, Dear Journal.


-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Witch-student of Master Attentus.

Raven (Character's Description).

Race: Human.
Class: Fighter 2 / Sorcerer 5 (a Male Warrior-Witch).


Deity: Follows Shar (godess of Darkness & Hatred, enemy of Sel√Ľne) - since his youth, in a deep way - but not fanatical. He can hate intensely, but can love & protect as well those he considers worthy, while looking with disdain at those he considers unworthy.

Occasionally, in challenging life moments he whispers a prayer chant to himself, to motivate himself.

'... Nocte Odium Ignis Mors,
Fiat Voluntas Pugna Luna ...'


Too often, he becomes bold & angry in these moments, barely controlling himself.

Sinister Whispers (Raven's Tale).

He was called 'Raven' since the day his captors brought him to the Temple, after burning his home village, after killing his parents.

He was raised in Temple, he learned basics of the witchcraft & a sword-play, since youth.

Often he heard sinister chants of those cultists, and by the time they resounded in his mind when he needed to think about his Godess.

'... Nocte Odium Ignis Mors,
Fiat Voluntas Pugna Luna ...'


He repeated these words in his own sinister whispers, as a form of chant & prayer, when he needed to remind himself of his destiny, when his life became too complex or challenging, when he needed to turn to his Evil Godess, Shar.

...

After his temple was burnt he fled to cold north, to Narfell.

He'll find his own way, he'll forge his own destiny in Shar's service - he thought.

Tower of Love, a Den of Power.

Dear Journal,

... i had unsettling dreams,

... in my dreams i had a vision of a Tower, in which Beautiful Women of Power offered Love.

Tower of Love is a great Spiritual Challenge, for those who dare to enter.

... it's easy to annoy all women of the tower, by loving improperly.

... Tower is a symbol of Catastrophe, of Ruin in TAROT, Divination Deck of Cards.

... it's not easy to emerge victorious from that Test, but those who succeed will advance in Spirituality & Love, will achieve Great Success through many lives.

... Those who fail, will have their Karma Ruined for many lives, as well.

... i had insight that i'll visit the tower to serve there after many Reincarnations, as well - and won't fail the Test for Tower's Staff.

... had insights that many of our friends, including Attentus & Liliana will pass the Tower of Love's Challenges as well.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Witch & a Seeker of Enlightened Energies.
