The local news, on the other hand, seems to be the same everyday: dead teenagers involved with the "Fantasy Gangs" by means of bloody skirmishes. It seems to be in different spots all over the city, and there is no possible connection to these battles. Will these wars never end?
Jemal and Ethan Blackstone:
The Blackstone Apothecary sits as always in Starlight Bay's slums. The shop itself is fairly common on the outside. Jemal seems to be browsing along and enters the store about an hour before closing. Nothing of interest seems to catch Jemal's eyes as he looks through the shelves.
Ethan, who just happens to be in the back of the shop, was looking through a book that caught his sight. It was a book about some magic rituals that could possibly work with his magic. He could sense a being of dark magic in the storefront and another magical being just outside the store who seems to be coming in.
Jemal then notices a girl in a trench coat and a witch's hat heading toward the store counter where Ms. Lang was preparing the cash register for the next day. The enigmatic girl asks Mrs. Lang, "Can you help me? I am looking for something like this." and hands Mrs. Lang a scrap of old paper. Mrs. Lang's eyes widen and says "You had better leave, young miss! You do not know what you are dealing with here!?" Ethan can hear what Mrs. Lang said from the back and heads toward the front to see what is going on. "I think you should." the girl in the witch hat said as her eyes began glowing a strange purple and lifts her and toward Mrs. Lang. The next thing Mrs. Lang knew was that she was regurgitating her lunch all over the store front. "What about now?" the girl said.
Abberant and Halcyon:
Abberant was in the back alley of the Ace of Spades Casino. He had just dealt with a scuffle between two of "The Hoodlums" and was relaxing just at the corner. With is constant state of "Evolution," Abberant kept under cover as he kept his hood over his head and fact to avoid anybody from turning face and running in terror. It was here that Abberant saw a couple of goons with crossbows enter the casino through the back door...
Halcyon was dealing a set of cards at his table of Blackjack. The night was like all others: many bet, some lost too much, some won some, and the rare case of a Jackpot; however, this night was different as a couple of young adults, wearing clothes bearing the "Dwarf" gang, entered the casino and sat at Halcyon's table. They play a few rounds of Blackjack when, all of a sudden, a crossbow bolt strikes one of the three goons and falls to the floor, creating a pool of blood on the beautiful carpet. Behind Halcyon, a group of thugs with crossbows are rushing toward your table, bolts pointed at the other thugs at the table, who are currently pulling out long knifes and short swords and charging into the fray.
Ace and Visionary:
Visionary, who had just finished his lectures for the week, decided to head to Blaze Corp's main building. He had just joined the last tour of the day and saw the facility's many floors that are to be in public view. Many things caught his interest, especially one of their custom-made telescopes inside the building. Certainly, there were many utensils of education that Visionary could use for his lectures.
This was when Ace, the Blaze Corps poster boy, ran through the tour group and into a nearby office bearing the following words: "Lincoln Blaze, CEO." Ace had received word that Mr. Blaze would like to see Ace for a special project. Inside, Ace had taken his seat as Lincoln, having blazing red hair and goatee, sat in a comfortable chair just on the other side of an ebony desk. "As I have told you, I have a project that I must ask only you to do. Recently, I have been receiving messages about thugs stealing some computer equipment from shipments between this building and the storage facility. I need you to see who is doing this and stop it at once. I have a bad feeling about this, a VERY bad feeling."
It was just then that one of the tourist, who just happened to be wearing a trench coat, threw off his coat to reveal his upper, well-built body and his mechanical right arm with a shovel instead of a hand. The massive man then began charging toward the office of Lincoln Blaze and burst through with ease. Catching Lincoln and Ace by surprise, the massive man grabs Lincoln by the collar, lifts him up, and asks in a deep voice, "Where is the proto-type? NOW!"
