[Starshadow Spire]Useful Trinkets (private)

11th of Immanis, Era XVI Post-Fractum
Winter of Miracles



The elflord sat gazing down at the set of beads sitting upon the table in front of him. They were, for lack of a better word, perfect. Each bead could, theoretically, hold it's own enchantment. He'd spent the past cycle, mostly brightening and darkening, studying a single bead in Clara, his arcanic staff Gil'dae comfortably across his lap. His House Caster, the Master Mystic Encobri, had been present with him, doing an identical ritual. The sorcerer glanced up at the mystic, grinning lopsidedly.

"Can it be done?" Encobri said nothing, but merely cocked an eyebrow at the suggestion that she could pull it off. She was a Master Mystic, after all. To the first bead, which she touched with her finger, she began to weave her arcane magic into it, denaturing the bead before beginning to construct the arcane enchantment that would dwell within it.

By conjuring Thought Essence and altering them into the necessary forms and shapes, the Mystic can produce seemingly life-like illusions. Coupled with divined weaves and strings of abjuration, these illusions can move and interact with all five senses. The focus of this Illusion Mastery spell, however, was not a separate entity, but upon the wearer. With this, the wearer could, by thinking the word 'Transform' while focusing on the necklace, illusively alter their appearance to be any the caster might desire. In addition, a second layer was added to the enchantment, the illusion that the person who was altered could also alter others' perception of the wearer's vis, even making them seem like a normal, non-practicing member of society. As the spell solidified into the bead, tying the spell to the vis of the bead that she had infused into it to allow it to regenerate it's own energy, she sat back, exhausted at the use of her magic.

Meanwhile, Motito began his own work. On the next bead he pulled it apart and began to infuse it with his own energies. It was a skintight field of repellent force and protective energy that protected the wearer from anything physical or metaphysical. It was simple enough by Altering the reflexive Vis around the wearer when activated, then Abjuring it to give protective energy about her, tossing in the Evoking power of energy for good measure. Lastly, he Divined the energy, connecting it to the wearer, so that they had but to mentally send the word 'shield' through to the necklace to activate it.

As Tito finished, the spell coalescing much as Encobri's had and being tied to the bead's vis, he sat back, taking slow, deep breaths and wiping the sweat from his brow. It had taken the better part of a candlemark for each to do their work, but the end result should be very useful...but that was only the beginning.

Another cycle of each studying a bead and they were ready for their second installment of enchantments.

Encobri's second enchantment was a constant-effect enchantment, one that blanketed the wearer at all times. it was an Initate-level spell, but cast at Master-level its power would be mesmerizing--and an initate's spell would be easier to make a constant-effect besides--by Divination the Suggestion spell would make any who beheld the caster looking for enchantments or arcanic weaves that none were existant, ever, and all equipment and items upon the bearer were mundane. It would obscure the arcanic nature of everything Tito had, so he'd look like far less of a walking weapon considering the number of enchantments he was collecting on various trinkets and weapons. As her spell came into being, again being tied to the vis of the bead, she sat back, wiping her face. Once she could regain her feet she'd go wash her face and rest for half the brightening, meanwhile Tito continued his own enchantment.

His next one was another of his staple spells, Portal. By altering mana into a field at a fixed point, conjuring the destination from a location divined from the wearer's memory, and abjuring the mana to force it to remain in place for the duration of the spell. He of course divined it in a fashion that it could only be activated by thinking of the location, overlaying it atop a mental image of the necklace, and sending the word 'portal' mentally to the necklace. This spell too he allowed to close, leaning back and sagging in exhausted effort. He too left to get some rest. They'd gather again when they were feeling better to continue their work.

Sleep wasn't an option...it wasn't possible, muchless necessary in Arios. So, they simply went about their day with relaxation, and after about a half-brightening, they regathered to continue, each selecting a new bead to study for a cycle. There was still much work to be done.

Tito began this session, having a clever idea. By utilizing Master-level energies on an Initiate-level spell that still required a trigger...he would be able to, in theory, create a neigh-infinite number of them, as the Master-level vis would recuperate before it could run out unless the spell was used exhaustively. Every spell enchanted thusfar had been either defensive or guileful in nature, perhaps he should equip it with some attack ability, even if it was rediculously low-powered...it just meant he could fling a lot of them in quick succession.

So, he took the Master level energies and held most of it in reserve. He took an initiate-level amount and conjured it into the shape of a slightly curved blade, as if he were holding an elven longsword. It could be held by the bearer, and then thrown into a spiral if he so wished. The [b]Star of Force[b] spell held several possibilities. Rather than letting it come into being, however, he sealed it within the bead, then layered it over and over with Master-level energies. He strengthened and powered it countless times over the course of a candlemark, making sure it had enough vis to be able to cast over and over, before sealing it within the bead in the same fashion as the others, by thinking the word 'star' while focusing on the necklace in the mind's eye. If they included their hand in the mental image it would appear in their hand, otherwise they could imageine a target instead and it would fly towards the intended target.

As he finished, Encobri was already deep into her own enchant; the Absorb spell. She first conjured a field and shaped it into the appropriate size and shape using alteration, making it a formfitting spell that protects the bearer of the necklace. The conjured field is then laced with patterns of abjured and divined weaves which absorb spells directed into the field and filters the shaped essences back into its separate properties: Ara, Vis, and the respective sphere's essence. Only particles of Vis are reabsorbed by the field, which is transferred directly back to the caster via a secondary weaves consisting of abjuration and alteration. Then she divined the activation, making it a mental image of the necklace while thinking the word 'take' at the necklace. Unlike others, this one could be dangerous if sustained and taking in too much magic, so she included the ability to deactivate it by the same manner, only thinking the word 'off' instead.

Once again, after a bit of rest, each picked out a bead to study for a cycle...they were almost done.

Encobri started off the final round of enchantments, the next bead being another special mysticism spell. The magic she created caused a temporary two-way Telepathy link with the wearer and the target of their choice. After a few moments of use it would need a candlemark to regenerate, but it allowed for communication. As she pulled the weave together, she set the activation trigger as Motito has asked her, to focus on the target, overlay the image of the necklace in their mind and think the word 'connect' at the necklace, connecting the spell to the bead's vis as it was sealed within.

Motito was next, this time intentionally making a low-powered weave. He altered a field around the necklace, wrapping it so tightly that it would be unnoticeable. Then he abjured the energy in a single direction, making it into a protective shield that wouldn't repel contact, but would act as a structural support, ensuring the necklace would be incredibly difficult to break. Then he layed and relayed extra cords of mana throughout the spell, making it a constant effect, one that though low in power, would be able to remain intact while enduring a lot of punishment. As he finalized the spell, letting it coalesce, he sat back, grinning softly while blowing out his breath.

At last, for now, the pair was done. A necklace that could take a beating, open portals, create shields, craft illusions, connect minds telepathically, and all while convincing those around that the wearer had no enchantments at all...and this was just on the necklace. Tito sighed, grinning, and slipped it around his neck once more, where it usually rest...and thanks to the amount of focus he could put into shaping them all, it had taken him and her far less time then it likely would have otherwise.



Secrets :

Summary
Over the course of four cycles, various beads on the glass bead necklace have been enchanted, and the total enchantments are thus, all using Master-level energies:
~Portal : 3 times a brightening
~Force Shield: 3 times a brightening
~Telepathy: five minutes before needing a candlemark to recharge
~Illusion Master: Can only be used to alter their own appearance/voice and vis levels. Can be used/held for a total of 5 candlemarks a brightening.
~Absorb: 3 times a brightening, and can be deactivated at will but cannot regain the extra energy
~Star of Force: At Initiate power-level. Can be used neigh-limitlessly should he care to use a low-powered attack spell.
~Suggestion: Constant Effect convincing others the belief that no matter how scrutinized, the wearer has no enchantments/spells placed upon his person.
~Force Shield: Constant Effect protecting it from harm while keeping from repelling contact; acting as structural support.
