You are Charlie Dennet, High school student and apprentice to one of the world's greatest mages.

And today? Today is your fourteenth birthday.

You study under THE John Constantine. He's taught you all about the basics of magic, how to cast rituals and incantations. He says he'll even teach you to cast spells using just words! How cool is that!?

So, jumping down the last few stairs, you can't help but feel this birthday is going to be best one ever. For a moment, you think you smell the scent of something burning, but it's probably just your mom cooking you your birthday pancakes.

So you round the corner, big stupid grin on your face. Oh, there's smoke coming from the frying pan on the stove. Wait, why is the stove on? Why isn't your mom watching it? She's a real stickler for that type of stuff. Glancing about the kitchen, you see your mother prone on the floor, crumpled in upon herself as if in terrible agony.

Diving for the landline, you punch in the number for John Constantine. For some reason, suddenly out of breath. How did that even happen? The phone rings once.

Why is your mom on the ground. Why are her eyes closed and her arms wrapped around her?

The phone rings twice.

Why didn't you listen to John when he said you might need to learn some sort of healing spell? Why are you such a shitty son!?

The phone rings a third time.

The questions continue. You beg and you plead quietly for John to answer the phone and just as you think all hope is lost. A voice appears on the other end. Breathless and female.

"Hey, I'm sure whatever it is, it's important b-
You cut her off. You have no time for John and his 'female friends'. Your mom is lying on your kitchen floor and you're fairly certain the pancake she was cooking has now caught fire.

"PUT HIM ON THE BLOODY, FUCKING PHONE, YOU CHAV CUNT!!" You scream, hysteria and anger driving any thoughts of manners clear from your mind. You can hear the girl suck her teeth, but then there's the fumbling of a phone switching hands and an exasperated John Constantine answers.

"Make it quick, kid"
"My mom is lying on our kitchen floor. I need your help"
"...Where's your house?"

You give John the address and you can hear him explaining he has to leave to his companion

"Kid, whatever you do, don't touch her. And call a bloody ambulance"

You go about following your teacher's instructions. Soon, an ambulance is at your home and you're riding in the back, holding your mother's hand as an EMT attempts to soothe your nerves.

Why is your mom like this? And how are John and you going to fix this?

You are Charlie Dennet, a high school student and apprentice to one of the world's greatest mages.

And yesterday? Yesterday was your fourteenth birthday.

Today? Today is the first day of the rest of your mother's life.

Terminal. That was the word the doctor used to explain your mother's condition, after you wore her down enough for her to share with you why she was on the kitchen floor. You're a pretty good student, so you know what that word means. It means you're mom is going to die. The doctors don't know how to fix her and cancer kills people, so that means your mother is going to die. You have the ability to turn black pepper into sneezing gas and the power to see like a hawk. And you can't do anything.

You are Charlie Dennet. You study under THE John Constantine. And he's nowhere to be found.

After speaking to him last night. He hasn't called you back and it seems like his number can no longer be reached.

Blinking awake, your mother smiles at you from behind her oxygen mask. She weakly reaches out and grabs your hand. Oh god. Was your mom always this weak? Or have you just gotten stronger. Is this what puberty means? You grow stronger while the people you love get weaker.

You...you have to DO something. Anything.

>A. Call that emergency 'Only do it if things have gone to utter shite' number John gave you
>B. Get that page you picked back up after John tore it out of your tome
>C. Call your father...maybe he can help, somehow.

Squeezing your mom's hand, you give her your best reassuring smile and then slowly get to your feet. At first your mother's eyes grow wide, but then she seems to relax and take her hand, tucking it under her blanket.

"I promise, I'll be right back mom. I just have to get something"

You're lying. You aren't 'Right back' it takes you the better part of an hour to get home and get your hands on that tome page. The page is, if you're reading this correctly, detailed instructions on how to summon a powerful demon, capable of, well, anything a mortal could fathom. Whoa, that's saying quite a bit, considering you're fourteen and can fathom a lot.

Well, the question is....just how bad do you want to save your mom?

>A. Get started on the ritual

You hesitate for only a moment before punching in the numbers. You aren't particularly fond of phoning your father, and you doubt he is going to make this anymore of a pleasant experience. The phone rings only once before the familiar voice of your father's secretary can be heard.

"Hello, Maxwell Lord's Office, how may I help you?"
"Um, hi Kara" you whisper weakly. You only met your father's secretary once, and that was almost a year ago, when he gave you that book that led to the whole Constantine thing.
"Wait. Is that Charlie? No way, that is you, isn't it? Your voice sounds different"
"Yeah, I've grown too"
"Ah! That sounds abso-" Kara is cut off by a bark of a voice and then you can clearly hear your father's voice saying

"Then hand me the phone, Kara!" followed by the muffled passing of the receiver.

"Son." your father says curtly. You've always hated talking to your dad. His voice always makes it sound like he'd much rather be doing something different. The ass.

"Dad"
"What do you want? If this is about your next visit, let's wait until school is out, okay?"
"No, Dad. Mom is...mom is sick."
"Then call a doctor, Charles"
"Not that kind of sick....She has cancer, dad"

There's silence on his end. But only for a moment

"Is it bad"
"It's...it's terminal, dad"
"I'm sorry to hear that. I'll have my people have her sent to the best medical facility for whatever she has." and with that, your father hangs up, leaving you holding a phone to your ear.

Was that things going well or not?

You are Charlie Dennet. A highschool graduate and former apprentice to one of the world's greatest mages.

And today? Today is the day you move into your crappy new apartment. It was hard living so far from your mother, but with your recent graduation and the money you saved up working on your uncle's farm in Alberta, you have finally managed to move to Metropolis. The only issue is that your crappy apartment is in Metropolis' worst neighborhood, the Suicide Slums.

But then, you're a wizard, Charlie. What's the worst that can happen?

Suddenly, the world explodes. The buildings crumble in upon themselves. People falling from their windows or crushed by the rubble. The streets heave like the stomach of some diseased beast. They split here and there, the cracks growing wide enough for people to fall into, to disappear with nary a scream to mark their previous existence.

You stand in the epicenter, somehow safe but unable to help your fellow man. You watch in abject horror as children die, as couples are torn apart, some, quite literally. You watch as the things you've done in the name of love tear the lives of those around you apart.

You watch as the choices you've made damn you to hell, all for the sake of your mother, who you desperately hope never learns of what you've done.

(Part 2 of 3)
>>
>>44996851
You awake with a start, bolting upright in bed, the word for one of your Personal Spells already on your lips. You gasp, eyes darting around the room, attempting to make sense of how the very architecture of your crappy apartment could have changed so quickly and without your noticing. Then you hear the patter of rain on your window and the sound of a car zooming by on the slick roads and you remember.

You don't live in the Suicide Slums anymore. You don't attend Metropolis University anymore. Because there is no more Metropolis University and every part of Metropolis looks like the Suicide Slums on crack

Sighing, you stumble out of bed and grab a shirt from atop your desk chair and walk out of the room, slipping it on. Finally, you're in the upstairs bathroom, blinking at the annoyingly bright glare of the light and staring at yourself in the mirror.

You look like a zombie. Not that you've ever had to deal with a zombie, thank god. According to what you learned, those things are terrifying.

Being biracial, you have a slight brownish tint to your skin and hair that's not quite dark brown but also not quite black. Under normal conditions, you'd be alright looking, but with the lack of sleep you've been getting has resulted in dark circles under your eyes and cheek creases, making you look downright sickly. You sigh in frustration and turn away from the mirror to get started on your morning routine. Your alarm clock may say it's only 3:30 AM, but if being Cuntstantine's apprentice has taught you anything, it's that a lack of sleep is par for the course.

But, what're you going to do after you get ready for the day?
>A. Go for a run around the neighborhood. You haven't worked out in forever, and it may help you sleep tonight
>B. Study. It's now Saturday, technically, and you have your first class on Monday
>C. Go downstairs and watch tv. Maybe watch the news and learn some stuff about the city

After slipping on one of your trusted hoodies, you take a seat at your desk and get busy. Typically, for you, practicing magic is as simple as getting a feel for the magic that exists in the area around you. Magic exists independently of those who use it, and so, a large part of being a mage is simply knowing just how well an environment is going to be capable of supporting what it is you do. Some places on earth are completely devoid of magic and if a mage should unwittingly walk into a place like that, things can get tricky.

However, while stretching your senses outwards you find yourself catching something. It's a bit like a dog catching a scent, you pick up on something there and you begin to home in on whatever it is. That is so odd. The magic is new. Not the magic in the air, that stuff doesn't exactly DO age. But whatever someone was doing with the magic, they did it recently.

And that means theres some sort of user of magic who lives in your neighborhood.

>A. Focus harder and try to pinpoint WHERE in the neighborhood the user may be

You are tumbling, rolling, falling, spinning. You are a star crashing from on high to the earth below. You are raindrop hurtling from above to splash into the lake below. To merge the body of water and become it. Embody it.

You crash to the ground, bouncing off the floor. Groaning, you struggle to your feet, stumbling to lean up against one of the dojo's beams. Ugh, crap. That hurt. Looking about you, you realize in some sort of Dojo. Like that one time your dad tried to get you to take martial arts lessons. How did yo- OH SHIT. OH No. OH god.

You know what this is. Oh for the love of...how did you fuck up this bad?!?

John once taught you that astral projection can be dangerous around people with very vivid imaginations...or people who are sleeping. Usually, you need some sort of connection to them. Whether intimate or otherwise. In this case, it seems you linked yourself to the other mage while trying to figure out where they were. Now you're stuck in their dreamworld until you figure out a spell to get out, or you get the to let you go...or they kill you. Dying is also an option.

Just as you consider what spell you might know that could help, there's an audible sort of popping sound above you and you look up to see...

GIRL IN GOLD AND PURPLE WITH SWORDS DODGE! You leap to the side, just in time it seems, as the girl impales the chunk of floor you'd just been standing on.

" Don't speak! "

There's a blank spot in your mind where the words that girl said exist. You know she said SOMETHING, you know it was in a language you understand and now you seem to have forgotten how to make your vocal cords work.

The girl grabs yanks one of the swords from the ground and throws it at your feet.

" Fight! "

Oh crap.

You're half crouch facing down some sort of weird psychic girl in her dreams. Well, at least you've got a chance.

A master swordsmen, you are not. Thankfully, it seems, all that time spent not dying in the last 19 years has afforded you a reasonably quick set of reflexes and some solid footwork.

The girl swings high and you duck only to see her throwing a knee at your face, you leap back JUST far enough to avoid the back swing of her sword. And the cycle starts anew. Each and every time she swings, you avoid getting impaled or bifurcated or otherwise grievously injured. However, it seems she has no intention of letting up. In fact, you're fairly certainly she's been slowly increasing the speed of her attacks as time goes on.

She's not trying to kill you; she's having fun. Jesus, whoever this girl is, she's one sadistic psycho.

Also, it seems she's forgotten to do that weird, no-words-amnesia thing she did at the beginning of this whole fiasco. So, you can start mixing spells into this shindig.

>A. Take it to her with the sword. She's been fighting fair for the last little bit and besides...you might just win
>B. Use MirOsis to summon a bunch of fake Charlie's to throw her off

You duck below a particularly savage swing and then point your index finger at where you predict the sword is going to be just before she begins her back swing. "Wallo" you whisper as the beam of brown comes out as always, a thin streak that collides with it's target and suffuses it for a split second. For a moment, the girl hesitates, but then she swings with her sword and you bring yours up to block and things get interesting.

The swords snaps as easily as if it were a glass bottle being smashed against a brick wall. Just as you predicted. What you did not predict, was the girl's arm also shattering, as if it were made of glass. Her arm, from the fingertips to the elbow breaks apart into pieces and she's left stumbling past you, pitching onto her face.

"AAAAAAAAH!" she screams, clutching at her broken appendage. Oh. Well ain't that a rotten bit of luck. Seems your Wallo spell is capable of harming incorporeal constructs as well as physical ones. That's new. You're fairly certainly it couldn't do that before. On the bright side, however, it seems to have torn a hole in her dream world, through which you leap.


Immediately, you snap to attention, still sitting at your desk. However, not all is peaceful, as you can hear a young woman screaming from down the hall and the sounds of feet pounding on floorboards.

Uh-oh. Looks like the other mage wasn't just in the neighborhood. They were in the house.

Sighing, you get to your feet and begin to make your way out of your room, stopping only to wipe the drool off your chin. Apparently, elegance while astral projecting is a skill you have yet to master. Actually, now that you think about it...you haven't astrally projected since that time John forced you to during a meditation session. And you've only successfully cancelled one spell. And you've never just TAKEN one from someone else.

Weird. How HAVE you been doing half this stuff?

You exit your room just in time for Conner, who appears to have been about half the hallway away to lunge at you. Oddly, it seems like he blurs as he approaches and before you can even react, he's got you by the collar and has pinned you against the opposite wall, leaving you breathless. His other hand begins to rifle through your pockets and in areas where you may hide some sort of weaponry. After finding nothing, Conner turns from you and grabs hold of your chin with a grip of iron.

"He's clean, Tim. You want to come question him now?"
Stepping into your room, helping Anita walk by supporting half of her weight as she shivers in seeming shock, Tim deposits the young girl on your bed and she curls in upon herself...much like your mom did all those years ago.

"I'm not giving you the chance to speak, Charlie. And if you try any, more complex spells. I assure you, you will regret it." he pauses to gauge your reaction and when you give him nothing but a blank stare he nods.

"You will raise your left hand for no and right hand for yes. Am I understood"

You meekly raise your right hand, doing your best to shoot Tim a 'The fuck is all this' look while doing so.

He seems unfazed by your apparent mix of fear and confusion. Instead, he only nods at your hand and then returns his gaze to your eyes. "Conner, put him down. I'm pretty sure he's not going to try to escape"
And with that, Conner drops you, backing up to stand beside Tim menacingly.
"I'm not trying to ruin a potential friendship or business relationship, Charlie. So, I'll tell you what, you can ask me three questions about myself or Conner and I'll answer honestly. In return, you have to answer any three questions I have. Deal?"

No. I'm getting questions out of the way since the scene works out as Tim and Charlie rapidfire asking each other questions and getting answers.

i.e.
Charlie - Question
Tim - Answer. Immediate Question

Then why not also quote in DCCT's post as well, to show that there's support?
>>
>>45000914
Can we please instead ask "What superpowers do each of you have?"

As a mage, we should probably be well aware of the possibility of people rules-lawyering us out of shit, and word our questions and requests properly out of sheer instinct.

We may have severely injured her through our inexpertise, and we're not a dick. We probably understand why they're doing this. Hopefully they don't hold it against us either.

"Is Anita okay?"

>>45001311
It was actually the other way around. You astrally projected yourself directly into her head, which is incredibly dangerous for both parties.

She jumped you because she assumed you were jumping her.
>>
>>45001237
>B. does everyone here have something that makes them "stand out"?

and question 3 How'd anyone figure out that I "stand out" as well?
>>
>>45001370
This is true, but she did then proceed to demand that we fight instead of talking things out and press her attack against us even as we defended passively.

So we're arguably not ENTIRELY to blame for this.
>>
>>45001370
Well now I kind of feel bad. We jumped into her headspace uninvited and then fucked her up. That's messed.

>>45001703
No. We're more just determining what questions Charlie asks during the exchange that he and Tim have. It's more less just us determining what questions the players would like answered.

The scene itself is all but written. Truth be told, no quantity of information you share or acquire is going to stop Tim Drake or Conner Kent from doing what they're going to do, for the most part.

The questions will be

Question 1 - "Do either of you have superpowers?"

Question 2 - How is Anita?

Question 3 - Who do you work for/with?
>>
>>45002096
That will just make them not pull out before finishing.
>>
>>45002109
Brushing the front of your hoodie down to give your hands something to do besides shake. You frown at Tim before slowly nodding your head as if someone had just said something that you agreed with.

"Decide on a gesture" You say
"I'm sorry?"
"Decide on a gesture we can both do in case we have a question or answer that does not directly pertain to the three we are guaranteeing one another"
"Good idea." Tim says, nodding "Okay, you tug on your left ear, I tug on my right."
"Cool. What superpowers do each of you have?" You ask immediately, hoping to get at least one of them off guard.
Tim raises his eyebrows and begins speaking but is cut off by Conner
"I'm essentially a younger, more handsome, Superman and Tim's only superpower is the ability to sound pretentious under any circumstance and only get dates with weirdos"

Tim turns to Conner, obviously exasperated but then turns to you.

"Who taught you how to cast spells?"
"A surly, English asshat named John Constantine. How's Anita doing?"
"Not well. Whatever you did to her, it seems you've caused some nerve damage to her arm. It'll be fine after a few days, but the next week or so is gonna suck for her. Did you purposefully attack Anita?"
"No. I made no intentional effort to hurt Anita. Who do you work for 'slash' with?" You say the slash outloud eliciting a chuckle from Conner.
"I work for Wayne Enterprises under their 'Batman Incorporated' Project. I also work with a vigilante group known as Young Justice. Can I trust you not to hurt any one of the three of us again?"

>A. Yes
>B. No
>C. "...I can't make a promise like that Tim, Magic isn't a precise science"
>D. "Only if you three promise to leave me be in return"
>>
>>45002373
>C. "...I can't make a promise like that Tim, Magic isn't a precise science"

Take today for example. All I was trying to do was find out who else was using magic. Instead I end up inside her head. With some wierd costumed chick throwing swords at me. I tried to weaken one of the swords and I end up wrecking her arm.

>>45002373
"I can't make a promise like that Tim. Hell, I wasn't TRYING to hurt anyone tonight! I was just...I thought I sensed another mage and-"
"Bullshit" comes a weak whisper from your bed. Turning your attention to Anita, you see that she is now sitting up, her back against the wall and has rolled up her sleeve. Her arm looks awful It's all bruised and shaky.
"You jumped right into dreamspace! You're either a meta or some sort of practitioned magical assassin"
"I swear, it isn't like that! I was ju-"
"You're full of SHIT!" She screeches, tearing the sleeve of her thin, long sleeved t-shirt, revealing more of her injured arm. "Look at me! Look at this! You knew EXACTLY what you were doing"
"Anita, you have to believe me, that was an accident. I didn't even know that spell could effect spirits or incorporeal beings"


"ENOUGH!" Conner shouts. This is actually the first time you've heard him raise his voice. It helps that he's also holding your desk in the air with one hand. He places the desk back down with a note of finality and locks eyes with you.

"Be honest with me Charlie....were you trying to hurt Anita?"

"No. Conner I"
"WHOA! Dude, don't give me those puppy dog eyes. Give em to Anita" and with that, he sort of shoves you towards your bed and you end up falling onto it beside Anita. For a moment, you assume the flinch she gives is more her restraining her urge to hit you, but you know that rabbit look in her eye.

That's not anger. That's fear. That's the same look you'd see in your own eye when you got ready to visit your dad's.

Anita isn't angry with you. She's...she's afraid of you.

"Anita, please. You have to understand. I didn't mean for what happened to happen. All I wanted to do was figure out if there was someone else like me...if I wasn't alone"

The girl holds your gaze, and for a moment you fear your heartfelt words won't mean anything to her, but then she looks away. She looks down and then back up to you.

"Fine. I believe you. No wanna-be Voldemort would say something that sappy." And with that she gets to her feet and begins to walk out of the room. However, just as she reaches the doorway she stops and turns to face you. "But if you think this is over, you have another thing coming" and with that she walks out.

Tim looks from the doorway to you and then to Conner and finally back to you. "Well, that sounds like it's definitely not cleared up. But it also sounds like it's not my problem. Conner, shall we go downstairs so I can pummel you at a game of Halo before breakfast?"

"Oh please Timmy-boy. Charlie and I are gonna roast you! Ain't that right Charlie?" Conner asks as he follows Tim out of the room.

Well....it seems you've gotten out of a potentially dangerous situation. And it's only 4:10 AM.

Occult Advancements can be used to either change Ritual Spells into Personal Spells or research new Ritual Spells. Changing a Ritual Spell to Personal Spells can change the requirements to perform or maintain. Typically speaking, the more requirements there are, the harder it will be to dump any of them. The more magic you encounter, the more your list of potential Ritual Spells will increase.

>1 OA to Advance
Hawkeye
Parkman

>2 OA to Advance
Rockin

>3 OA to Advance
Smogline
Holding Circle

>4 OA to Advance
Backbreaker


Ritual Spells available

Makeover - Requires Charlie to eat a makeup sponge. Allows Charlie to copy the physical features of any human or humanoid being he has a picture of. It does not fool electronics

Fish Whisperer - Requires Charlie to be in contact with the water. Allows Charlie to control the mind of any 'non-sentient' fish he encounters. So long as he remains in contact with the water the fish is in, it is his to control.

Hopscotch - Requires Charlie to have touched a coin and then throw it. Charlie can instantly switch positions with the coin he has just thrown. Charlie can wait a maximum of ten seconds between the coin being thrown and the switch.

You can also bank your OA for another day. (Your bank currently has 1)

It allows Charlie to harm incorporeals and spirits. It also spreads a little bit from where it hits, allowing for more complete weakening of whatever it hits.

If you improve it anymore, it will start causing damage to corporeal beings as well. Acting a bit like a toxin

>>45003232
Backbreaker is a ritual that requires quite a few components. So improving it would really just remove some of the more extreme requirements.

i.e. Charlie would have to say the Activation word, break one finger and drink 2 Oz of blood from his victim, all the while the victim is in sight.

Backbreaker has nothing to do with the 10 you rolled. It's just a really big curse John taught you because he knew you'd ask for one and he wanted to give you one that wouldn't kill outright and that would require so many components you wouldn't want to use it.

I'm not even going to lie to you. It's not a possibility. It's a certainty. You're going to have an adventure with John Constantine it's going to be pretty heavy.
