Vireylda Saharn is a malevolent Minion


The Best Defense, Is A Better Offense (Icefyre)

It was perhaps, the more outlandish of the ideas Vireylda Saharn had come up with. Yes, she was quickly becoming a more than moderately powered necromancer, but the pale elf did realize that her academic excursions into experiments might soon become a tad dangerous. She'd messed with Acid, shoved the powers of decay into a ring. Now?

Well, now it was a bit more.

Vireylda stared at the fruit in front of her. An apple, lay on the top of a simple table. Next to it, pages of scribbles detailed the plan. She sighed, looking through it again. This has so many possibilities to turn out bad. It would make more sense to just abandon the project, but progress was never achieved by giving up, was it? Of course not.

She went over the plan again, and then grabbed her stuff, and left her house. The shadow elf walked until she was well out of Ziel Aerca, ending up outside at a fairly large rock, where she sat the apple down. This way she wouldn't end up destroying her furniture. The pale elf made herself comfortable, concentrating. "Interitas En Viridus" She would summon her staff, and then slowly close her eyes.

In theory, the field of concentrated decay should just surround the apple, stagnate, but not diminishing. Vireylda envisioned it in a sort of cocoon, but it would take practice to get right. Even more for her to be comfortable enough to use it on herself. The final product would have to radiate from around her, but not harm her. It would be tricky, but where was the fun in easy?

The necromancer grinned wickedly at the thought of whomever was unfortunate enough to battle her, when the field was active.

Channeling through her staff, she cast. Surround the apple, stagnate, don't affect it.

Icefyre is a dubious Denizen


oocohhh this is going to be fun.... let the decay begin..

This whole idea was dangerous to an extreme level... If this went wrong anytime when cast upon herself, the spell could in theory cause severe, and maybe permanent damage, maybe even drain her lifeforce to zero, which would mean to control of the dead would include herself...

So practice was going to be the watchword for this particular situation. Even with the staff this spell was going to use a significant amount of Vis / Mana creation, but starting small was a good idea, and also not on her own body... Was an apple a fair representation of her Elven form? No! But it did represent something that was going to be easily bruised, and that would give a fair indication of the spell working correctly, to some extent.

As an initial attempt, this wasn't a complete failure. The spell surrounded the apple alright, but it also was a little too close to the apple skin, meaning that the decay began to affect the apple flesh underneath but not too deeply. If she were to cut through the apple Vireylda would see a defined line could be traced in the flesh where the boundary of the spell ended. Perhaps this would give her an idea to the extent that the decay spell could affect an object, and the ideas of boundaries.

Vireylda knew very well that it would be dangerous, that was why the apple was there. The necromancer hadn't survived up until now because she made a habit of doing stupid things. When your power was one of entropy, what idiot would test it on themselves first? Could easily lose a finger like that. Or worse.

So, she'd approach the apple to look. The level of decay on the fruit suggested that her spell had at least, been marginally successful. She'd been able to create some manner of void in the middle of the field, where something could easily fit without fear of attack. Mentally, Vireylda knew that her own sentient body was very different than that of a stationary fruit, but she'd get to that later.

For now, the elf pulled another apple out of her sack. Extending her hand, she carefully replaced the decayed apple with a fresh one. The rotten fruit was set aside for later study. Then once everything was in order, and where she wanted it, Vree cast again.

It was tricky business in the first place. Essentially she was creating a void within the entropic energy. Something that had to be fluid enough to be shaped, but solid to the point that it wouldn't collapse in on her. The elf sighed, it would be so much easier if she could simply negate the effect on herself. That way the need for a safety bubble was rendered mute.

Theories however, didn't matter. Maybe the answer would come to her in the following experiments. The energies were again shaped, this time with finer control. Vireylda was thankful for her staff, because without it the experiment would probably have been hopeless. This time, she wanted a defined field. No bleeding of the energies into the flesh of the fruit.

Better?
