I need someone with magic or Vail gate stuff to Pull out my wakisashi and give it to me.  I usually travel with katana and tanto only,  but have a plan for the middle sword.  They should say that Jenny foresaw my need and sent it to me.  *I gave it to her character in another game/ reality timeline thing.

Maybe Abraham?

*If I read the relevant post correctly, it is the young fellow in the red coat who's been given elfin features and being dropped off by the officer who's wearing two katanas. Just a minor point, probably.

Changing the bit about Marley seeing someone with a red jacket (back to green; if that were James's young officer, she would have been letting him in before he went to the door and knocked, So I'm assuming the one who came in with Beety was a different fellow altogether. I'll have Marley open the door and let James's fellow in just before he goes out back to spar with Toby and teh others.

I and Marley are not trying to be mean and unfair; that disarming move was supposedly very popular in RL duels, so better for Toby to meet it firsthand and learn to deal with it. The fact that Marley does it with what amounts to a (blunt dummy) hand-and-a-half sword is just a showcase of his skill with that kind of weapon.

James is the one in Green, the green is the 95th Irish Rifles company (see the Sharp series)
The Elfin in red is of the Camalonian Alliance, the red is the old British uniform but just happened to be the same colour needed for the Pendragon's who still exist on his world that he had trained on under the rule of Queen Victoria Pendragon.

I'm assuming the first case is completed then? If so, I'll lock it.

I'll do the same thing I did with the HMAS Marigold threads and compile the completed episodes into a master thread, keeping the current game thread open and stickied.

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

I was thinking some mind control poison or something. Maybe magic that slowly turns the victim evil.

It is to go along with Reid's prophecy really. Might as well make a suspicious reentrance.

Funny how a side bit that I didn't expect to carry much impact can make someone change a whole path.   I was just playing.   Grin

Cool if the prophecy does turn in to something, but I didn't really expect it too.  LOL

I'm wondering about image magic.  Is it enchanted paint/ink meant to redraw his soul?  There's some really interesting mythology with tattoos that Captain Purcell might remember at a suitable point.

Nope, the Vail is a place of pure energy, if one spends enough time there they can draw on the energy and use it to rebuild their own soul and given time learn how to create a new body.
Having an anchor gives a focal point for a persons energys.
The sword also serves to focus his mind on what he was and how he should never be.

The following is Taken from the Diaries of James Purcell and is Copyright James Purcell 2012

On the Subject of James Purcells uniform.
The style was put out of use in the 19th century but a Highlord comes with privileges.
Normally a Highlord only carries one sword however, the Black Katana was given to him when he came to the Kitsune to learn how to control his wolfen side (it was the Kitsune that changed him into a Shadow Kitsune (part Kitsune, Part Werewolf) and is the reason why he is the only three tailed warewolf in history of Albion,England and Draconia) his second Katana is one awarded to him for surviving the trial of the 16. It is covered in the dark green of the 95th rifle (Irish company) and trimmed in gold as is norm for a Highlord.

In this photo he has a red sash, James differs because his is black and yellow with 3 red lines down one side.

And for those not in the know. the man on the right is the singer who sung the sharp theme and the version of British soldier I posted.

Since we're discussing/exposing origins and such...
Been conversing with Ms Walking Stick via PM, Re Bill. and perhaps Marley as well, concerning the issue of Ravens and whether one can be something else as well as a raven, and/or whether or not they stay ravens or humans to some degree 'way down inside.

If I've gotten it right, Bill is far too talkative, articulate, intelligent, and emotionally developed to be merely a fledgling raven. In all probability he was something else before, whether it be a person, a god, demigod, a demon or whatever; his flight through and with the Timewind as well as being inundated with all the magic energy at the Golden Tower probably is what molded him into his present form, or made it impossible to change back to what he was originally, is what i'm thinking. Lord alone knows who or what he was; that will be determined through subsequent events and/or cases.

Now onto Marley; most of this I extrapolated form what Ms. Walking Stick said about Bill; at this writing she has not gotten back to me yet concerning Marley's situation. I'm not sure about him, just that the transformation spell that made him a raven, and the one that changed him back, were most likely both botched in some way; the first one by the miscreant dabbler(s) because of inexperience and youthful hubris, causing Marley to live the life of a human learning to be a raven, and getting pushed off of buildings to teach him to fly, etc.; the second, by Grand Master Mollesly, because of haste in order to salvage as much of Marley's humanity as possible, and to stop Marley's human body from perching on his desk, acting like a raven learning to be a human in the basement of Whitehall, etc.

I was thinking that at some point Marley might get caught in another spell, or just somehow change back due to a glitch in Mollesley's  hastily concocted botch job. As with Bill, to be  developed in subsequent chapters or events. So, that's where all of that is in my fevered brain at the moment.

On another, rather  worrisome note: My Dad has been diagnosed with a condition in the optic nerve of his eye requiring daily injections of a certain drug; that means that for the foreseeable future (hopefully no more than a couple of weeks, but could turn out to be a month or more), I'll be driving him every day to the doctor's office to get said injections. Thus, My posting times may be severely curtailed. Have to see...

Very sorry to hear about your father.     Yes, I know a little about some of the Celtic (and Norse) versions of Ravens, and I figured you were setting Bill up to be something "special" down the road. 


Another reason for his development could simply be his association with ley lines and energies.   Since the Ravens are tied to the tower, and we have said it sits at a convergence point, I am sure he has absorbed some raw magic.....     


Interesting to see what other powers/ effects manifest.......

Prayers to your father.
