You are Charlie Dennet. Magician, student and, assuming you make it out of this apartment, vanquisher of demons.

Through a mix of luck, both good and bad, and your magic you managed to stop the Hell Hound that was mauling your new 'friend' Amon's wris. Unfortunately, it seems hell hounds are made of tougher stuff than you would anticipate and the four legged monstrosity slowly gets to it's feet, seemingly ignorant of the weight of the fridge it toppled over when you sent it flying.

This thing has you beat in the physical department, which means you're going to have to think of something quick if you want to get yourself, Adrianna and Amon out of this apartment alive. Given what you know about Hellhounds, you know that Amon is lucky to be alive; a Hellhound is stronger than your average man, capable of hitting almost 50 MPH and are fairly smart.

This is not going to be an easy win, that's for sure.

The Hellhounds shakes itself, throwing the ridge to the floor with a crash, it growls and takes a single step forwards, gaze shiting from you to Amon and back. You're no expert on animals, but you know what's probably going on in it's head; it's trying to decide which of you to go for. Amon is weakened and vulnerable, but you seem to be protecting him. It doesn't want to give you another chance at it's flank or back, but it's instincts are telling to jump on the boy it started on.

It's indecision is giving you an opening to...

>A. Use MirOsis to try and keep this thing guessing
>B. Grab Amon and tell Adrianna to run for it; at least one of you should make it out
>C. Toss a coin somewhere in the room and take a run at the thing, try and distract it
>D. Take the broom from Adrianna and try to keep this thing busy

Throw two coins, one behind the hound one at our feet, teleport in for a sucker punch/kick then teleport out.

Potentially. It depends on how smart a Hell Hound is, which Charlie doesn't know for certain.

>Multiple Coins
Charlie can only teleport to the last coin he threw.

Tearing a coin out of your pocket, and subsequently spilling the contents of your pocket onto the floor, you fling it in a random direction. This seems to set the creature off and it lunges towards Amon, only to skid to a stop as you take off towards it. It barks loudly and turns to meet you, you ready yourself to use your magic before it's jaws can rip you to shreds.

However, rudely, a broom comes flying from over your shoulder and smashes the Hellhound right in the face. It bounces off, seemingly doing no serious damage, but causing the creature to shake it's head in obvious confusion. You don't even bother turning around. You know there is no way Amon could've done that, but his sister...she's just odd enough to chuck a broom at a Hellhound and consider it a good idea.

Fortunately , her interference has caused the creature to leave itself open as it turns to face it's newest assailant.

>A. Kick it hard as you can! You're already half-sprinting, might as well make it for a reason.
>B. Jump onto it's back and use the towels you tied together to try and gag/suffocate it; you might end up like Tyr, but girls dig Norse gods, right?

Swallowing your urge to yell something like 'Yeehaw!', you leap clear over the hellhound, dropping the towels over it as you do so. Hitting the ground, you spin and, to your amazement, the towels are actually forming a closed circle around the beast.

So you focus your will and the magic in the very air at it and with nary a sound, the barrier is erected, trapping it within your holding circle. You then immediately lose your balance and fall to the ground, having closed the circle before the inertia took you clean off your feet. You crash into the fridge, eliciting a gasp as the corner of it drives into your lower back.

Good gods, that hurts!

You fight the urge to flop like a fish, and instead, maintain your gaze on the circle, intent on holding it up as long as possible. The hellhound, smacks into the wall of the circle and then adopts a confused look as it sits, seemingly thinking. God this thing is creepy.

But at least it's contained. You can hear Adrianna coaxing her brother towards his wheelchair, which you assume she has picked up and turned upright.

"Charlie"
You grunt, still focusing on the circle and ignoring the pain in your lower back.
"Do Hellhounds have teeth?"
"What?"
"Do Hellhounds have teeth?"
"No, I heard you, I mean, why are you asking?"
"If you meant to ask 'Why', you should have said 'Why?' and not 'What'. 'What' in this context, is usually meant to express that you did not hear me y-"
"Adrianna, please just tell me WHY you are asking"
"It does not appear to have broken the skin on my brother's wrist. Also, I believe Amon is unconscious"

Wait, what? How could it not have broken the skin? You've seen this thing's fangs, they're huge. What is going on?

The circle will hold for 1 minute even if you look away.

And the circle exists both in the spirit and the physical world. It's actually far more noticeable in the spirit.

"Adrianna, bring Amon over here, but do not cross in front of the Hell Hound, walk the long way around to me"
"Alright then"

You begin to hear her doing just that and though you see her enter into your peripheral and then back out, you never turn away from the circle. While you're proud of what you just did, you know that there is no way in hell you are landing that same stunt twice in the same night. Especially not on this hellhound. You can FEEL, the damn thing staring right at you. It's not even bothering to test the strength of the circle, which, truth be told, you're not even sure could hold a hellhound. Though, it did once hold an angry Criptanian transcript, so it might just be up to snuff.

You hear Adrianna roll the chair a bit too close to you and to the side for you to see. She'd need to take another couple of steps to be where you want her to be, but she's close enough, assuming you're more worried about the demon dog than her brother's comfort. So, you fumble about blindly with your left hand until it closes on Amon's wrist. You wince sympathetically as you prod with your fingers and feel the injury. Yep. This thing is pretty badly broken. Oddly, though, you're fairly certain it more broke due to jerking than it did due to crushing. Why would a hell hound do that?

It's anchor!

A demon needs SOMETHING or SOMEONE to anchor it to the physical world, whether that be it's summoner or something else. However, if the anchor is something poorly suited for the task the demon is given, it can interfere with it's methods or warp them. In this case, it seems the focus is more along the lines of playful dog than killer attack dog, so it was treating Amon like a rag doll, not a target.

Weird, surely anyone capable of summoning a Hellhound would know not to use a playful dog...

Your heartbeat slows to a crawl. Your breathing grows more infrequent as the necessity for oxygen is lowered. Your eyes slowly close as your brain shuts down most of it's functions.

But not before your spirit slips free from it's mortal prison.

Things are...different, when you've slipped out of your body and become a spirit. Most of the room is duller, the colors of the carpet or the fruit or paint are less interesting. Sort of all smudged together and very difficult to really pay any attention to. However, on the other hand, the towels you tied together have become a dazzling circle of bluish light, from which, a translucent pillar extends up and away, out of your sight. The circle appears to be attached to you by a thin string of the same light.

Thankfully, due to the translucency of the pillar, the hellhound's horrible features remain hidden, though you can hear it growling softly. Walking around the prison you crafted, you marvel at seeing your magic in it's truest glory. This is something that you did. You made this thing. You take the time to glance away from the pillar, though you make sure to keep it in your peripheral to ensure it remains intact, to look at Adrianna and Amon.

Whoa.

Amon is....Amon is worthy. You can see it as a thin coil of lightning that zips about his body. It disappears under the dull smudges of his clothing, but it always returns into sight as it zips this way and that throughout his body. Amon is worthy to become Shazam.

Or, he could be.

Adrianna is...what? Adrianna is just as smudged as the wall behind her, or her clothing. As far as you can tell, there is no difference between Adrianna and any of the other inanimate things around her. But...does that mean she's some sort of robot?

"Have you come to gawk, or to talk, Mortal?" You hear from the circle.

Hellhounds can talk!?

"You can talk?!"
"I can do many things, Mortal"
"Like, maybe, leave?"
Part 1/2
>>
>>45291441
"Not that"
"Lame"
"You are beginning to agitate me, Mortal"
"I get that a lot. My startling wit and flawless humor intimidate people"
The hellhound does not reply beyond it's growl growing notably louder and deeper.
"Fine, what're your terms?"
"Standard deal of three questions. You may not ask for my True Name. Nor may you give me a command that contradicts any commands I am currently under. You will then destroy what binds me to my anchor and I will return to maelstrom"
"Maelstrom is a dorky name for hell"

John taught you that capturing demons is more about making deals that take your strength and their's into account. The Hellhound knows you can just pick it apart from outside the circle, with relative ease. However, it also knows you need SOMETHING from it, or you would have done it by now.

In return for it's safe return to hell, you are being offered information, so long as that information does not include it's 'True Name', so that you can summon it yourself.

This thing is a shrewd negotiator.

>>45291646
"Alright, just giving you a heads up, I'm going to be calling you Fido"
"Do not ca-"
"Alright Fido! Who sent you?"

You can practically FEEL the growl coming out of the hell hound's throat, but it makes no move to test the strength of your holding circle before it seems to regain control of itself.

"I was sent by a fellow demon. He is currently possessing a body and was used to complete the ritual, that the identity of my truest master remain obfuscated."
"That sounds like a needlessly complex plan"
"It is. You mortals are idiots"
"Coming from the mutt in the circle"
"Fair"
"Yep"
"The True Name of the demon escapes me, but I believe it is pronounced 'Archeon' in your barbaric tongue"

Wait. You know that name. That's the name of one of John's old allies. Back when John was messing around in the UK, he rolled with a bunch of other mages and a demon. A demon who wanted to be a good guy. One named Archeon. What is Archeon doing trying to....Archeon is the reason for the crappy anchor.

He chose a dog he KNEW would make it harder for the Hell Hound to kill it's target. Archeon is a demon, which means if he is being bound by his true name by a sufficiently powerful mage, he can't disobey a direct order, but he can certainly just botch the job by using less than 100%.

Well, there's that mystery solved.

Fucking Demons! Always trying to squirm their way out from under a deal. Though, it is worth noting...you never said yes to his deal, which means, technically, you aren't bound by it.

Well, either way, might as well get the most out of any misconceptions this thing might have about what's going down.

"I don't have that information either. That is three questions, you may now proceed with the severing of my anchor"

You pause for a moment, pointing your finger at the Hell-Hound's silhouette in the circle, sincerely considering what you're going to do. If you hit it with a Wallo Spell, it'll destroy the circle and assuming it intends to fulfill it's part of the bargain, it'll just present it's anchor and you can finish the shattering of it....or it might maul you.

OR, you could keep it trapped and maybe pressure it into answering more questions...

>A. Go through with the deal; demons may be tricky bastards, but at their core, they usually just want to go back wherever they came from
>B. Inform him that you never formally agreed to the deal and that you're going to need more answers before it can go

"Actually, Fido, my kind canine companion, I never agreed to your little offer"
You hear the Hell Hound curse in some language. French, maybe?
"Hey! Language. But, more seriously. I've got you backed into a corner and it might be a good idea for you to humor me here"
"...Or what, Mortal?"
"Or I keep you trapped here until I know a way to kill you"
"...You have made a grave error, Mortal"
"And what's that?"
"I'm stronger than you"

And with that, the Hell Hound throws itself at the walls of your circle and you FEEL it through the thin line connecting the circle and yourself.

It's going to break through. This thing IS strong enough to smash through your circle, but you can feel your circle beckoning, BEGGING you to throw more magic, more of your will at it.

You see the line grow taut between yourself and the circle and you...

Way less risky. There's a chance you're just trying to lull him into a false sense of security by pretending to be a weak mage.

If he just 'answers' some questions about people he doesn't even like, and you let him go with risk, he loses nothing and gets to walk away unscathed.

The line between you and the circle grows thicker, turning from a single string into a piece of rope and then into a seemingly solid bar of light as thick as a flag pole. The Hell Hound throws itself agains the circle again and again, but to no avail as the cracks it forms with the impacts repair themselves almost instantly. You grit your teeth, unused to the feeling as you draw in more magic from around you and force it out through the line connecting you to the spell.

After a few more attempts, the Hell Hound stops, and sits back on it's haunches, obviously exhausted as it gasps for air.

"H-how? How are you so powerful?"
"It's the terrible jokes, for each one I tell, my power grows"
"You truly are insufferable, and I hail from the Maelstrom, so I know insufferable"
"Was that a joke?"
"It was an attempt. I'm counting that as one of the questions, by the way"

Whatever. Seems like this thing is going to give you some more tries at questions.

No hard feelings Fido, but you seem like the type of guy who would say 'An eye for an eye'"

The hellhound grumbles but fulfills it's part of the bargain, saying what you've proposed.

"Now what do you want answered so I can leave, Mortal"

"Alright, first things first, Where did you arrive when you were summoned, Fido?"
"I was summoned in the basement of an abandoned home. It was 88 Finger Street, as far as I am aware"
"Hmm. Interesting. Why did you only attack now?"
"Your presence fulfilled the criteria for me to attack."
For a moment, you consider asking it what those criteria were, but, then you shrug it off. It's not like it really mattered what bullshit limitations Archeon put on this thing.
"Did the demon know I was going to be here?"
"I do not have that information. Now let me go"

You sigh and then set to work setting the Hell Hound free without endangering yourself. For a split second you suspect it might pounce on you, but then it sort of bends itself backwards, revealing a myriad of strings that appear to be connecting it to a dog, somewhere inside of it's body without hurting it. You blast away at the strings and soon the Hell Hound dissipates as the dog runs around in circles.

Sighing, you sort of force a loss of concentration and feel yourself slowly sliding towards something. Your eyes snap open and you see a dog, whose head is far too large for it's body, running around the circle of towels you laid do-

HOLY FUCKING EVERY GOD!

Your brain is on fire, your everything hurts. Is this what drowning is like? This must be what drowning is like. Your eyes roll back in their sockets and you feel yourself losing consciousness, even as Adrianna's voice, sounding only mildly concerned asks something you can't make out.

The darkness claims you.

Your chest feels odd. It's like you can't breath right. You weakly raise your arms and brush at your chest and your fingers bump into something soft and warm. With great effort, you open your eyes and there is a dog laying it's very heavy and oversized head on your chest.

You are also laying in a bed you don't recognize in a room you do not recognize. Sitting a ways from you, tapping at a laptop is Adrianna, who does not appear to have noticed you are now awake.

You kind of want to groan or maybe complain, but, truth be told, you feel amazing. You haven't felt this good in weeks, though you do feel a bit tired, truth be told.

You take a moment to look about the room and your eyes land on an alarm clock on the bedside counter. It indicates that it is 9:55 PM.

Oh. You must've passed out.

Your hand drifts over to the dog's head and soon you are scratching it behind the ear as you begin to speak to Adrianna.

"Hey"
Without turning around, Adrianna responds
"Hello"
"What happened?"
Adrianna never stops typing or turns to look at you as she answers your inquiry
"We were attacked by a being you called a Hell Hound. You managed to do something, I imagine you entrapped it with your wizard powers, and then you seemed to fall unconscious, and then the Hell Hound started to speak in Latin. It was strange. Then, the Hell Hound dissipated into smoke that smelled like sulfur and it left behind a dog. You then fell unconscious and then you woke up for a few minutes to go to the rest room and drink water. I think you were sleep walking. And then you went to back to sleep and the dog followed you. And now you are awake"
She pauses to turn to look at you

"You have been using my bed for approximately 29 hours or so. I am going to need it to sleep tonight" She then turns back to her computer and gets back to typing.

29 Hours.

That means it's Sunday night. You missed an entire DAY!

You pet the dog as you get to your feet, or, you attempt to. You stand awkwardly, sort of wobbling as your legs, which seem to be asleep, throb. You aren't wearing your shirt, either. It seems to have been removed before you were placed in the bed. How did Adrianna even get you in this room, you wonder.

"Is Amon okay?" You ask as you tug your t-shirt back on. It was on the bedside counter.

"He is at the hospital. I believe he will be healthy soon. Are you leaving?"
"Yeah. Sorry for loitering in your bed"
"It is fine. You received more than one call while unconscious. I did not answer them"

You glance at your phone, which, miraculously, managed to survive inside of your pocket, despite not being charged in more than a day.

You got a call from Kitty. One from your Mother. Another from a blocked number and one from 'Walters', according to your caller id

Part 1/2
>>
>>45294516
You rush out of the apartment, noting that, somehow, Adrianna manged to put the door back on without any issues. That girl is a handy one.

You're on your way home and according to your battery, there is no way you can handle more than one phone call. And god, you feel so exhausted. You're probably going to crash right after getting home. Which might actually be to your benefit; you have your first class tomorrow at 7 AM.

>>45294936

She never did.

The closest thing she ever said to something like that is that she could find out Charlie's real identity pretty easily.
>>
>>45294597
You dial your mother's number and before the third ring is through, she answers with a very merry sounding.

"Hello?"
"Hi Mom"
"Charlie? Charlie is that you?"
"Yeah, it's me."

"I'm glad you called me back...I wanted to tell you..but" She keeps pausing, and you think she might be crying. You clench your fist. You've been ready for this call for a long time. Every kid of a cancer patient knows about this call and every one of them dreads it.

You feel yourself starting to walk faster, as if moving quicker will make this any easier to bear.

"Charlie, oh god, Charlie, Charlie are you there?"
"...Yeah. I'm here"
"The doctor he...Charlie...I'm going to be okay"
You feel yourself slowing down. You're a few blocks from your house, but you're going slower now. You can hear your heart pounding in your chest.

BA-BUMP

"He said" she gasps, you can feel your eyes aching at the back "Charlie, he said my cancer" BA-BUMP "He said it was in remission"

BA-BUMP

"Charie. I'm coming out to see you. Not soon, though I want to. I want to so bad. The doctors want to keep me for some more tests, but it looks promising. Charlie...I'm go-" Your phone dies.

You slip your phone into your pocket and then you start running. The tears are warm but grow colder the faster you go and the longer they are exposed to the air.

Your mom is okay. She's going to BE okay. You take the stairs to the house two at a time, you breeze on through the kitchen and grab a bottle of water, smiling greeting Impulse, who is doing push-ups in the living room and Arrowette and some black haired kid who are watching tv.

You walk into your room, plug in your charger and phone and just crash.

And for once...for once you aren't haunted by anything.

You are NOT going to be late! Not on the first fucking day.

You can't believe you forgot to set a fucking alarm! You idiot! You manage to round the corner of hallway and burst into the room. Ignoring the looks of obvious annoyance from the people inside of the room, you actually vault a table in your pursuit of a front row seat.

You are NOT going to be anything but the best student in this class, even if it costs you everything. Hell, you haven't even had time to call back any of the people who called you, as you sprinted to class.

You slide into your seat just as the latest person to enter the room slowly closes it, smiling politely at everyone. As the rest of the students slide back into their seats or otherwise quiet down. You follow the blonde-haired, admittedly handsome Professor who sets his things up at the podium and then steps out to stand in front of it.

"Hello everyone. As I'm sure you imagine, I am not your regular Professor, Professor Sage. I am a guest lecturer that she has called in to substitute for her while she handles some business" He pauses to turn to the board and write out his name, making slow, deliberate motions.

"My name, is Barry Allen. But you guys can just call me Barry"

He smiles as he turns around.

Charlie left the dog at the Tomaz's. So far, it did not follow him.


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.

2 OA Banked
1 OA Gained

3 OA available

>1 OA to Advance
Hawkeye
Parkman

>2 OA to Advance
Rockin

>3 OA to Advance
Smogline
Holding Circle
Hopscotch

>4 OA to Advance
Backbreaker


Ritual Spells available (Ritual Spells cost 1 OA to acquire)

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.

Jaw Breaker - Requires Charlie to eat a dog treat. Magically increases Charlie's grip strength to superhuman standards and allows him to break bones should he clamp down. It lasts approximately thirty seconds. Does not increase his general strength.

You can also bank your OA for another day. (Your bank currently has 2 OA)

Good for when Supes figure out what we did.
>>
>>45295556
Yeah upgrade holding circle, certainly get enough use out of it.
>>
>>45295556
Holding Circle takes it.

It's Personal Spell is Innalov, followed by the target's name.

Charlie throws his circle or the material that is going to be the basis for the circle into the air and it flies towards them to form a circle. It is much faster if Charlie throws a completed circle. Can be used to activate a circle Charlie has made in the last three minutes. Charlie still has to be able to see the circle to keep it running for an extended period of time. If anything outside breaks the circle, then the spell is broken. If Charlie looks away, the circle lasts 1 minute.
>>
>>45295787

Does it work with aliases and not just true/real names?
>>
>>45295787
Can we use string tied in a circle? Also whats Barry teaching?
>>
>>45295802
No. It has to be given (as in by parents) or a True Name. Aliases will not work.

>>45295803
Yes you can use a string tied in a circle. Barry was set to guest lecture a week after the first class, but recent events have necessitated someone like him giving his lecture early.

He was in the news, about a month ago, for helping Central City PD finding The Rogue's due to his forensic work.

>>45295816
If you throw the material (Chalk, Blood etc) then it will slowly form itself into a circle and then sort of lazily drift to entrap it's target.
>>
>>45295849
>Given or True Name only.

Aww, okay.

>Forensics Class

Cool.
>>
>>45295849
if we ind a spell book would that give an occult advancement or would it give us spells
>>
>>45295849
Thanks for the Run DCCT.
>>
>>45295875
It would give spells, a particularly well written that is MEANT to teach someone might give one Occult Advancement.

However, spellbooks designed to actually teach magic are few and far inbetween. Mages are generally assholes. Because anyone could be a mage and if everyone is special, what makes you special?

so most are encoded an we have to figure them out

Glad you stuck around. Hope you join in next time as well!

>>45295980
Most are complete bullshit or only designed to help someone who has particular knowledge. Though, yes, a few are encoded.

>>45295958
So if we were to bang two erasers together, how long would it take for the chalk dust to form a circle? Purely theoretically of course.
