"Still moving on"

 

A few turns after you got past the gap you spot a ladder and it leads to a backyard of a building you know so you can use this as exit and entrance if you have to take a brake.

Direct Go to Step 08

Failure: You move a few of the lower stones to the side when suddenly everything starts to move. Some of the stones hit you on you feet and so you had to limp out to try it at a other day again.

Vitality -1; Go to Step 07

 

2) Revision: make the rumble transparent

Success: After all this normal rumble get transparent enough for you to look trough there is a single stone well carved stone that didn't become invisible. Using a other well placed Revision spell the stone slowly moves trough the rumble toward your hands.

Go to Step 07

 

3) Dedication: You won't give up even if it means you have to find a needle in a haystack

Auto Success: Its a lot of work to move the rumble away and not just once you where about to give up. But finally the well carved stone you just spot must be the thing your looking for.

+1 or +2 Stress; Direct Go to Step 08

 

4) Brute Strength: You have 2 healthy hands so move the stones.

Requirement: Investigation 1 or 2

Direct Go to Step 08

Success: You lift 2 of the heavier boulders away and there this stone must be it! Its a well carved that is distinctive different from all the other rumble.

Failure: You move a few of the lower stones to the side when suddenly everything starts to move. Some of the stones hit you on you feet and so you had to limp out to try it at a other day again.

Vitality -1; Go to Step 07

 

5) Concentration: Levitate the stones

Requirement: Investigation 1 or 2

Success: You move two of the largest stones using a levitation spell and there it is, a well carved stone.

Failure: You finished your spell and starting to move the first stones but instead of moving how you direct them they shoot direct at you wand-hand. So you decided its better to come back at a other day when you squeezed fingers are healthy again.

-1 Vitality; Go to Step 07

 

6) Incantation: Use wind

Requirement: Investigation 1 or 2

Direct Go to Step 08

Success: You wind moved some of the lower stones and the complete rumble heap started to move. When the movement ended you spot a well carved stone what apparently is what your looking for.

"The Gate Stone"

 

As soon you touch the stone that appears to be the artefact you are looking for you find your self all of the sudden somewhere different.

While you look around at this small room with just a desk and a simple bed where a human skeleton is lying on you hear.

"Hi,hi,hi we have visitors hi,hi,hi"

To your horror the skeleton is rising from the bed with a mad red light in its eyes.

"They found poor Izael, poor, poor Izael"

"They wont get Izael!"

"We must kill them and get the stone, yes we must!"

The skeleton stumble toward you holding a paper in its left and trying to hit you with the right.

 

Investigation 1) Theory of Gates: can some of your gate knowledge help you here?

Success: Maybe its this strange realm that keep the mad spirit and the bones together so if you let the skeleton touch you and activate the portal stone to return it most likely will crumble to dust.

 

1) Flawless Timing you activate the portal stone again

Success: right before a hit of the skeleton connects but then your out, back at the destroyed house. Next to you is the skeleton now turning to dust only leaving the paper it was holding.

Direct Go to 09

Failure you managed to get out unhurt but dropped the stone on the other side.

You don't want to wait to see if the skeleton makes it over as well and so abound this quest.

Adventure Ends

 

2) Composure: Let you hit by the skeleton and use the portal stone at the same time

Prerequisite Investigation 1

Auto Success: The skeleton hit you as planed and you use the stone. As you suspected the skeleton crumble to dust as soon your back in Mineta. Only the paper it was holding in its hand remains

-1 Vitality; Direct Go to 09

 

3) Wrestling tackle the skeleton

Success: You tackle the skeleton down but it managed to activate the Gate Stone your holding. So both of you got teleported back to Mineta. Back at the crumbled house there is no more opposite force coming from the skeleton as it turn to dust only the paper remain.

Direct Go to 09

Failure: The Skeleton manage to hit you in your stomach before you get a hold on it but then you managed to garble it. Suddenly you find your self back at the crumbled house and the skeleton you just managed to grab turns to dust in your hands. Only the paper it was holding remains.

-2 Vitality; Direct Go to 09

 

 

Artefact: Gate Stone to Izaels Study

 

Izaels Study is a small room with only a desk and a simple bed in a other dimension.

Time flows there more then twice as fast as in Mineta.

So a Student can use his time there to study and get the most needed rest.

There is a safety measure so that the portal stone can only be used every other day to enter this room as it would be to taxing for mind and body to visit this dimension more frequent.

 

Effect: Night Rest; +1 Study

"Read the paper"

 

You read the papers the skeleton left

"They hunt me to get my cloistered!"

"So I had to escape to my secret room that was useful to me trough all the years I was at Academagia."

"By the dragons I dropped the portal stone when entering my Study Room and so I can't use the normal way out!"

"But I'm not sure if this way would even work when I wanted to return as I left the hunters some nasty surprises in my house."

"Even worse I also forgot my wand and so I have to use my fingers to cast spells"

"For now I will get me some rest before looking for some other way to exit this dimension"

 

"Damn the persons who made the ban of Gate magic law."

"How is knowing Gate Magic is worse then using the way we bind our familiars on a human as done by a friend?"

"Thanks to this law I'm now stuck in this dimension"

"Till today I only used this room to read books to study and to get some rest so I didn't realise that magic works different here."

"All my gate magic spells that I managed to cast without a wand don't work!"

"Maybe I should have taken more then just 2 years Gate, maybe then I would know a way out of this?"

"Slowly I reach the time where the gate stone usual force me to leave the room but I don't have it with me this time."

"Also my storage in water is used up by now because I didn't managed to fill it up before they found me so I getting thirsty and hungry!"

 

"Is it a week I'm already trapped here? Hard to tell as the light is always the same."

"I hardly feel anything any more so the hunger and thirst are gone also."

"Looking at me I see that only bone and hide is left from me"

"I always wondered why I only could use the room every other day but now I realise that extended exposure is not good for ones mind and body!"

 

"I try to focus my last clear thought to who ever find this letter."

"Don't overuse this study like I did, this place Is clearly never meant for a human to stay for a extended time"

"As long you keep with the limited time the gate stone let you stay and only return every other day every thing should be fine"

"The much faster flow of time here was great for the days I need some extra time to get some rest or study some books."

"Also say my cousin Raoul that I'm sorry to not be able to follow his advice regarding this room.

 

"Signed Izael"

 

After you returned to the surface you now have to decide what to do with this Portal Stone in your hands.

As it is clearly gate magic you think that you only have this 3 option

 

1) Bureaucracy register it (Cost money and if fail the item is lost)

Requirement: Enough Pims

Success: The argumentation with the bureaucrats and the testing of this Item trough a other mage took seemingly for ever. But you managed to convince them that this item is not dangerous and a item that was manufactured within Mineta from the pre ban time. So after you paid the usual fee for this kind of test you got a document that this item is legal allowed according to the laws of Mineta.

+Legal Gate Stone to Izaels Study; -Pims

Failure: It was a bad idea to register this item now you not only paid a huge sum in Pims you also are not allowed to keep the Gate Stone. The words that your did the right thing for sure don't help either.

-Pims

 

2) keep it secret (The Gate Stone is flagged as illegal)

You feel you was destined to find this item so you will keep it. Sure this means you have to keep it a secret that you have such a item but who cares.

+Gate Stone to Izaels Study

 

3) turn it over to the Academy

Auto Success:

You walk over to the main gate of Academagia and see the Legate who just ended a talk with a stranger.

He spotted you then and greet you with the words "Hello there. Can't await till the next year start young one?"

When you mentioned that you discovered a dangerous device that you didn't know where you could bring it to he invited you to his office

In his office you showed him the paper and the Gate Stone.

After he silently read the paper he told you.

"You where right to bring this thing to me. I will take care of it."

"Now I think some reward is in order because of the summer break I can't award you Merit points but moment ..."

He looks trough the drawer of his desk and then put a ring on the table.

"This ring might help you from getting to stressed."

"Anything else you need of me? Otherwise I suggest you leave the academy now as I have work to do."

+ Relationship with Orso Orsi

+ Ring that can restore 5 points Stress once a week as free action
