RP Topics will go in here. It's buried inside this forum to keep it from getting confused with the main RP room section.

Oddestsey V: The Seven Lords

Post by Alexjh » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:02 am

The chamber has sat untouched for centuries, with nothing but disturb it but the scurrying of geckos and spider-gnomes over the cool polished walls. A slight pulsing of concentric rings of light ascending it's vast chimney like structure all that would tip off an observer that there had even been purpose to this place at all.

But things change, and somewhere off in the gloom, the sound of a half-rusted lever being pulled sends the geckos and spider-gnomes rushing to the nooks and crannies they call their homes. The pulsing light rings grow brighter and flow in waves up the tower and the colours shift from a dull orange to brilliant white. The rippling light reaches such speeds that it lends the entire chamber something of the essence of a zoescope with each rapid flash seemingly illuminating only slight movements.

And then... a tick like a metronome but a thousand times louder....

TICK
A being composed entirely of light plummets from the ceiling before steadying itself to drift in the air confusedly. Around it showers a few small objects; a yellow silk umbrella, a set of chess pieces made of marzipan, and a small golden ring with the image of a prarie-dog inlaid into it in enamel with a whiff of magic to it.

TICK
A man of human appearance in a brown coat and jeans plummets from the ceiling

As eyes adjust to the doorway, two beings come into focus and you realise you can hear the chanting of a vast crowd coming from through that door. One can best be described as a Wereflamingo, the other is probably a woman but the best part of 10ft tall and covered in armour that was probably invented in a Jack Kirby fever dream and carrying some huge electrified rod that looks like it was designed as a cattle prod for glaciers. She smirks, possibly hoping one of you will try something.

The being does not know what it is or where it is. It knows nothing, though faint ideas float through its head. It only knows what it wants to, or maybe needs to do. It reaches out to take thoughts from the one speaking, but pulls back at the last moment. It decides to copy what it needs instead. It starts to pull concepts and ideas from others. It learns what numbers are, and people, and language, and time. It finds that these concepts vary. It understands that objects fell down with it that might be of value and that it may want to pick something up, but first, it turns to face the one that came in after it and reaches out again to copy its size. It turns back to the pink, birdlike man who was speaking and reaches out to copy his understanding of the situation.
