Is it wrong that I was hoping for such a thing?   Maybe since she is tied so heavily to the city, she could message them through the walls of the building? or something?


Or maybe Beety could do something since she knows the fight was not going great when they left?  I dunno.

OOOoooohhhh    one of the Djinn could actually intercede by pitting us against the enemies of the boy?Huh

I don't know people......... work with me here!!!

Ah the forbidden mirror could work just fine. I was thinking it was enchanted and slightly addicting but not super harmful. Celia mainly hates it because it has an attitude and is narcissistic.

I was thinking Morgan might wake me with an offer of a deal.  She would allow Mall and me to arrive in time to save you, but she would remove my protection from my curse.

(the same old man who taught me sword taught me to meditate so my curse doesnt drive me insane.  If I accept her deal, I take my chances like every other male in my line.)

Okay, on my way.     I included a pic of the magic mirror I liked.    Thought it was cool if he helped in spite of himself.

Yes, I hope Mallard "heard the ranger call, and just missed him as the door slammed, he followed the trail of lights right behind....  or something

Are deus ex machinas allowed or strictly "plausible" (quotations because you know, magic)?

I am still wondering if there isnt a power struggle between the men in white and the morrigan, and maybe an enemy of my enemy......


I think she should appear to Celia and offer to help her out of her jam, but Celia must help her with the men in white somehow....

What if the men in white think they are the good guys but are trying to wipe out the Morgan's influence is a sort of burn away every thing she has ever touched sort of way.  Like an antibody gone wrong.

Just putting it out there that I actually do not know where the black eyes are going. I am thinking it is either what the charm absorbed, or the charm acts of some sort of vessel for the Nrse gods, like MAsk from the movie of the same name.

They wouldn't be harming innocents like Abraham then, the Morrigan does not reach as far as his homeland, the goddess Hel takes over.

It could just be because you are helping us.  I think maybe mallard could help stop Toby from being kidnapped during this fight.  Maybe I have watched too many fantasy movies but I like the idea of magical knights waiting for Arthur.

I have a suggested plot plan.......

Moeganna appears to Celia and offers a truce of sorts.

The spell at the tower is one of 5 places in London the men in white and/or the man trying to be king has set up a spell pentagram etc.   They are using the power of the 5 spells to try to force the Morrigan to bring forth Camelot. 

She thinks Celia,owes her.  Using her name got you,your way.  So if we will find the 5 points of power and,destroy the spell at each, she will be free to,exact revenge on her tormentors/ those who tried to,yet her.

This would,ask be from,the point of, view.  The truth might be that she tried to,yet them, hoping that if she helped Arther return then she could,rule,by his side.  When they didn't call for,it, she was trapped helping but not,getting her way.

Either way, we break the 5 spell points the two powers fight each other, we get out ok.

The 5 place tower of,london, big Ben, windsor Castle, ?, ?

Any thoughts?

Buckingham.

And the clubhouse. Though Celia doesn't know.

And I think the men in white should serve Mordred.

Morganna states : "every one of your group is indebted to me whether you know it or,not,  either by your actions (Celia -Toby. Reid - family history) or by my inaction, when you stumbled into my,way and I,chose not to oppose you.  I am,calling in the debt now.  Help me now and I,will not,interfere with Toby, nor will those who serve me, I will allow the ranger his meditation again, etc.  A boon for each who assists....."   

Oppose,me, and the whites will seat a false Arthur upon the throne, and Camelot, a mutated evil twisted version will unfold."

Hey, idea, anyone else thinking that all of us should have been brought together by fate to do this quest specifically because our characters were actually related to people from the legend? it seems that Reid and the Captain both have links, it would make sense?....

That was where I was headed but didn't want to shove it down anyone's throat.  That's why. Morrigan said we all owed her in some way.    Now, like Reid, he wouldn't agree that he "owes" her.  She pretty much devastated his clan.   But she sees a debt there.

We all could have some issue that either wronged her or that she "could have" taken issue with, so she feels like we should set her free.


Up to y all.

Lets just say that if events happened 5 years later then they are then things would be seriously bad due to the actions of James and the Knights of Camalot!

I wonder if Celia would be connected to Lancelot. They both are honorable and dutiful but when their heart led them they followed even though they knew it was braking their vows.

Not sure who Mallard would be related to, based on his character, who would you suggest he was like? sort've a flawed hero, very show-offy, socially inept, fit any characters? i'm thinking Merlin- a magic user. How ironic would that be....

Considering Beety's penchant for handing out useful objects perhaps she's descended from one of the ladies of the lake, the one that handed Arthur his sword.

I would think that if Abraham is related to anyone, it would be the Green Knight, as the Green Knight is an outsider like Abraham. Problem is , is that I was thinking Abraham was 100% Scandinavian. I could always change his story.

Any input?

Don't forget, relatives are only one facet of how they could be connected.   

Maybe Mallard or Abraham defeated a villain who was a relative of........Huh?

Or Morrigan had a plot in play and it relied on two people meeting.  Mallard got one of them arrested. 

Mine was really easy since I already had the backstory in my head with a normal witch, and the whole premise was inspired by the MacGregor name being banned in real life.  (twice I believe Rob Roy was a McGregor, but couldnt use that name....)
So I had come up with this curse, and the idea that other people thought they were doing witchcraft, so that is why their clan was officially disbanded.

A lot of what I write is taking something historical and twisting it to impact or be impacted by my character.   

Sorry if this comes off as know-it-all-ish.....   

Last words on this from me I promise....................   have fun.   make it whatever makes sense to you.
