    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    The ornate double doors closed behind Astrid and her ghostly doppelganger, sealing the pair in the spacious foyer to the Ulfrson’s Calibration distorted manor. Walls of sterile white stone rose around them - and distant sounds of phantom servants echoed through the chamber. Both women, however...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    Pale white light filled the darkened space of Astrid's workshop, supplied by one of Jahrl's light crystals. The chamber had seen little use recently - the debacle of Freyda's birth having sucked up most of her attention until now. Her operating table's leather had bleached white and some of her...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    Dark Portal, the ghost of Astrid sent to the mage of the mines. Aware, it was more a thought of Jahrl assenting, then anything else. Of course he already knew. She didn't send that. Instead, The Behemoth? A demon. The message was accompanied by a patch of blackness, somehow visible against...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    She came upon another place of churned earth at the wards' edge. Here, the footprints in the soil were frenzied. One set human, the other monstrous. Only the human steps continued beyond this point - following the edge of the wall of shadow wards, and mingling with those of the vengeful ghosts...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    The orange-red aurora winked out. The Astrids hastened to the estate. They paused at the place where Castamir fell, though. Uncertain, they looked at each other. The Essence in the air was palpable. "One of us ought to address it," the living Astrid decided. "Then which one tracks the...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    ...the dull violet light faded from Astrid's eyes. Once again, she was inside Jahrl's sealed chamber - its black walls lit by candlelight, and her blood circle still wet. It no longer smelled as delicious as she remembered, though. A ghost was in front of her. Gaunt, short and clad in loose...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    The plains were quiet that night. Tundra shrubs, patches of brilliantly coloured lichen and sparse wildflowers stretched out endlessly in all directions. A fire crackled before her, shedding heat and light. Above, the moon was absent - but the stars were bright. On the other side of the...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    Still deep under the earth, she'd passed through a few abandoned mine tunnels to get here, what she was pretty sure was Jahrl's workshop. Unlike before though, when she touched the boundary, she bounced off. Seemed Jahrl didn't give her a key to this lock. "What the hell are you doing Jahrl!"...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    Astrid stood still in silence for a moment, her legs shaking as though she somehow expected her foe to get back up. After a moment of inaction, the reality of it sunk in. She hesitantly stepped forward and searched through the fae's scattered remains, collecting what she could. Amongst the...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    ((This thread will be used to store complete scenes. Its quicker to play the actual battles out via IM.)) Jahrl's cave was on the outskirts of the Ulfrson Estate - literally the furthest point she could have ended up at. She moved as quickly as she was able still - and had to hope the darkness...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    Frustrated and in a panic, Astrid fled Jahrl’s ritual chamber. The stone doors gave way to a dark hallway of smooth black stone, shot through with veins of dark gold – not the grey-blue stone she remembered. The light-stones that should have provided light were gone as well, replaced by tongues...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    There was sigh from the old man in front of her, and he snapped a quick gesture. Behind her, the portal she'd entered through snapped shut - leaving only the stone wall of the cave. "Cynd, would you please attend to Dr. Mustonen?" He seemed tired, as he drew a handkerchief from his sleeve of to...

    Realistic or Modern Magical Teacher Professor Landry! - Character Creation (Here Be Text)

    Works for me. Approved. We've talked a bit about this before, for any observers wondering. Also: Yes I would like some tea.

    Realistic or Modern Magical Teacher Professor Landry! - Amid the Ghost Blossoms

    "Saraaaaah!" A pink blur leapt from the crowd at the edge of the stage and captured Sarah, from the side, in a sudden hug. The air warped briefly, as an invigorating spike of jasmine filled the air – and she felt her mindreading powers activate. You’re so cool! The girl hugging her thought, as a...

    Fantasy Cold Nights (Exalted 2.5e) - Astrid Mustonen

    There was a surprised squeal, and the grip on Astrid's ankle vanished. She felt the scalpel strike only air though. "She has a knife!" "A knife!" "A knife!" A chorus of whoops and jeers rose around her - the creatures she could not see sounding positively gleeful. She could hear quickly...
