EM: Lazarus and Caster Downtown

Post by Kittenboxxing on Mon Jul 27, 2015 1:02 am

Lazarus took a small break from speaking to flop down onto the bed. That spell had used a good amount of energy, and he needed at least a nap. He gestured to the other bed, "Please! Make yourself comfortable. We will have a long day ahead of us tomorrow." He laid down for a few moments before putting up the proper wards so that they would be well hidden from other masters for the time being. After requesting that Caster please let him know if there was anywhere he wanted to go so that they could be safe, he drifted off to sleep.

Caster relaxed in the more private atmosphere. He laid down on the bed and closed his eyes, reassuring himself that there was more time for questions and study tomorrow.

Lazarus woke before the sun. He had never needed as much sleep as the usual person, but this time it was a nightmare that had woken him instead of his biological clock. He ran a hand down his face, wiping the sweat away before heading into the bathroom to take a quick shower. He would have to find a more permanent base today, that was certain. He would settle for no less than a leyline base. It was integral to his plan and subsequent backup plans. As he waited for himself to dry, he wandered towel clad out onto the balcony of his room. He stood still, concentrating, whispering a spell under his breath and reaching out with his magic. He was sure he wouldn't be lucky enough to find a leyline anywhere nearby, but there was never any harm in checking.

[[As Lazarus concentrated, he could feel the hum of magic running under the city. From where he stood, he could feel two sources of concentrated mana nearby; one to the southwest in rural Miyama, and another to the east, across the Moon River.]]

Lazarus grinned broadly and went inside to dress and pack quickly. He shoved things into his suitcase in a haphazard pile. As he moved through the room he chirped to Caster, "We should get ready to go! We have to find a solid base today!"

Caster rubbed an eye with the heel of his hand. "I suppose you have a few ideas on that?" He stretched and yawned, taking the time to swiftly and precisely reorganize Lazarus's things so they fit into the suitcase, latching it closed with the hinges creaking only slightly.

"If you don't mind, if we'll be traveling far, I think I'll stay mostly in my spirit form unless an emergency arises. It'll be less conspicuous that way."

"That's an excellent idea!" he replied. "And thank you! I do get impatient and carried away sometimes!" He grabbed the suitcase and bounded out of the hotel, almost forgetting to check out. He was going to head to rural Miyama first, to see what lay there.

The shape of Caster shimmered and warped until it slowly faded out of sight. Prickles of magical energy flew after Lazarus, invisible to the eye and never more than a half-step behind.

[[As Lazarus and Caster follow the emanation of mana, it leads them south into Miyama's western-style district. They follow the mana very nearly to the edge of town. Just before they reach the forest, their search leads them to a large mansion. A high fence surrounds the estate and its large rear courtyard. The gates leading to the front door are closed and locked. The leyline appears to be directly beneath the mansion.]]

Lazarus looked up at the mansion, the gears in his head turning. He had to choose a course of action. "Caster, do you know anything about this mansion. Perhaps who, if anyone, is inside?"

Caster's voice placed him to the immediate right of Lazarus, a hollow echo. "It is on a leyline, as I'm sure you know already. If you found a way inside the house, I would be able to scout ahead relatively undetected, although magi are likely to live here. The location is far too ideal not to."

"That's what I was assuming. In that case, if you agree, I see no use in sneaking in. Shall we confront them face to face?" Lazarus began to draw several symbols upon himself. Wards for redirection of magical energies, protection against physical projectiles, and ones that projected a peaceful aura.

"As you say. If they sense me, I will reveal myself, as long as the circumstances aren't too..." A smile cut through his tone. "Antagonistic." He moved towards the gate.

Lazarus waltzed up to the gate and looked around for some possible trigger to open it, or at least announce his presence, be it magical or mundane.

[[There is a buzzer to the side of the gates. It looks old and dirty, as though it hasn't been used in years, but still functional.]]

Lazarus pressed the buzzer and waited patiently for someone to approach. He kept his senses as open as possible to be sure no one snuck up on him and his servant.

The response was almost immediate. A young, female voice answered. "Can I help you?"

"Hello! My name is Lazarus Quinlan. I was wondering if I might speak to the head of your household? You have quite a beautiful mansion!"

There was an extended pause, before she answered in an uncertain tone. "Um... thank you. I am the head of the household. What brings you here? I don't often have visitors."

He toyed with the notion of lying vs. being honest. A mansion sitting on top of something like this couldn't be an accident. Perhaps he could make some kind of arrangement.

"The Grail War brought me here. However, I don't want to fight. Perhaps some kind of alliance could be forged between us?"

There was a long and heavy silence. Then finally, the front door of the mansion opened, and a young woman with long black hair emerged in the doorway. Yui peered warily at the magus on the other side of the gate. What kind of Master just shows up at another Master's doorstep, announcing himself?

No visible Servant. One had to be close by, though. Placing her trust in the Bounded Field between them, she walked up to the gate.

"You're brave for approaching a protected stronghold so openly." He looked him up and down. "The War hasn't started yet, but I still must be wary. So, let's get the obvious out of the way: Why should I trust you?"

The voice in Lazarus's ear piped up. "I feel as though we might curry the young woman's favor if I made myself known. Appearing to risk a vulnerability makes the playing field seem more even."

Space warped and shimmered at the strange man's side and slowly filled, Caster appearing. He bowed, arms held out in a gesture of half-showmanship, half display of being unarmed. "Good evening, my lady. I am Phillipus von Hohenheim. I greet you, and assure you no ill will."

Yui jumped when the Servant suddenly appeared, automatically fearing an attack, before she reminded herself that she was safe for the time being. Just behind her, though, she felt Berserker tensing up. "Stay calm," Yui whispered back to her. "We won't be fighting here."

She recognized the name instantly. "Ah, the famous Paracelsus," she said, bowing back. "Well met. My name is Yui."

"Well to be honest, in the end one of us will have to be the victor, however for now I would be happy with not killing you! I won't feign some sort of emotional attatchment to you. As you know, you are sitting on a powerful leyline. I would appreciate the use of it. And I think if we work together, the war will definitely come down to you and I at the end. If you aren't experienced, which I find hard to believe, I will happily assist you in exchange for lodgings here. You will have the use of two very brilliant minds at your disposal!" he grinned disarmingly. The words coming out of his mouth were almost arrogant, but the mage seemed to be completely oblivious to how it sounded, unlike his servant.

Yui was stunned by his honesty, so she didn't know how to answer at first. Forming an alliance this early in the War would be invaluable, but the risks were obvious. Paracelsus had to be Caster; if her Berserker was typical of her class, her Magic Resistance would be low, leaving her vulnerable. On the other hand, her sheer power could easily overwhelm the physically weak Caster. She thought back to everything she had learned about the Caster class.

"I assume you are Caster," she said to Paracelsus. "So you must have the Territory Creation skill, yes? Provide you refrain from creating a Territory within the grounds of my mansion, I accept your offer."
