As we were taking our first steps back in the academy and we were taken to the hall were the Grand maestres gather to take decisions. I’ve been here once before and it wasn’t a good thing, so I was guessing it wasn’t going to be pretty. as we debriefed them on the on the great many things that had come to pass. I noticed they were a little skeptical about the stories we were telling them, even though they knew we couldn’t lie in there. although I liked the weird expression in their faces when the founding master Ziggy appeared from i-don’t-know-where, and believed what we were saying it was hilarious I must admit it felt good especially the face inInsertGrandMaestreEternalBladeName , priceless. We got a lot of points, we lost some because of the whole deal with the devil thing, I knew they wouldn’t like that part but I thought they at least would be amazed that pulled trough all that, but it looks like we are probably going to get expelled they’ll tell us the result but i think i know what the end result is going to be. I know I’m not liking the academy as much as i did before, but it has its perks even if we loose that much freedom and for some reason I don’t want to leave just yet.
The ten days they said they would take to make a final decisions are up, so i think the fun and games are over. Although I did make the most of the days I had left here, Ireth and Calaelen did showed me some good times and I’ll miss them but I’m going to see Isilra and say good bye, I learned so much from her and I’m gonna take one last crack at her, I can’t believe the magnitude of the crush I have on her. While leaving the room a couple of hooded guys jump me and try to abduct me, I managed to break away from their grapple and I shadow jaunted to the nearest hiding spot and made a run for it. It seemed like the best course of action, because I wasn’t geared up and they seemed quite capable of taking on me even with my gear on. I escaped from them and stalled for as long as I could but long story short they took me captive. I was expecting getting expelled, but abducting us and sacrificing us in this weird ritual is too much even for the academy, I wonder what people would think of the academy if they knew the way they handled expulsions.
Waking up it comes to my attention that I’m hardly wearing anything and I’m Chained to a pillar, it’s not the first time it happens and I’m sure as hell this isn’t going to be the list time (I hope), but something told me this wasn’t one of those fun times, maybe it was the twenty something people wearing robes with daggers and branding irons chanting by the pyre. As a struggled to break free, one of the hooded figures with the branding irons approached me. While feeling like most cows do when branded I managed to escape from the chains, I made a Death Mark attack at the person branding me as I jumped from the ledge of the tower a dagger caught my hand,the dagger has a thunder themed hilt and blade and i felt a shock as it pierced my hand leaving the thunder mark etched in my hand, but at least I got out of there. After walking for a couple of hours god knows where I came across a person camping, to my surprise it was Ziggy and explained to me that actually that was the ceremony for promoting an Expeditioner to an Initiate and gave this shirt with that said “I jumped from the initiation tower and all I got was this lousy T-shirt” he told me it was a lucky charm and lent his donkey with the condition of me returning it. After two months of trying to find my way back to the academy a meteor hit what I think it’s the fifth burro I get killed, damn this is gonna come back and bite me in the ass. As I enter the academy I encounter Ziggy so now to pay for the life of the burro I have to go get him the meteorite that killed it and he wants 8 i GP so I need to get my hands on another one because there’s just 7 in my bag. Also remember how I said I sucker punched the person branding me, well apparently it was Isilra, it was that or she’s mad at me for something else, but judging from the hell of a punch she threw at me I’m willing to bet mine did really hurt. Well all and all apparently Constantine Van Belmont got a kick out of the performance I did at the initiation tower so I guess maybe it wasn’t that bad, I hope.
