A Dance With Two Devils:
Act II

Blood dripped onto the parchment a feint smell of burnt sulfur filled the air and was inhaled, regret displayed on the young drowess facial features had she really sold her soul?

K'yon grinned devilish, his plan was finally coming to fruition, he had made inquiries about demon sightings and after what had felt a sisyphean task, rumors had spread enough for truly interesting characters to appear and finally shed light on this troublesome topic.

Not only had the rumours lured the shady Renor to him but also a further curious drowess called Ilhara, that had tried to spy on the two of them. Renor had confirmed his suspicion of a Demon on the surface World, he had also brought up other incredibly silly options of slaying demons within the Underdark some from the namely houses of Sshamath which K'yon knew about to some extend, and would never consider going after however. He was no fool to risk political repercussions of dramatic scales.

After he had layed out his plans to the two of them, Renor furthered his expedition with yet another female drow, he shamefully had to admit he could only describe as beautiful as bland as that was, Aunrae had joined their union. Only minutes later yet another one of the females of his race, Mehbrien Dae'Antares,
had joined them. She had been the hardest to convince to embark on this rather
adventurous with many dangers picked journey. We are going to save ourselves the details of the bribing and coercing done by Renor to finally break her resistance.

Now he had finally had them where he wanted them, they all, but Aunrae, signed his contract with their very own blood. He had ensured them of the fact that the amount of blood being used would not be enough to utilise for blood magic... Which of course was the utmost truth, when in reality he had just played this charade to scare them, he needed to create or further his reputation if he was to keep such a large entrepreneurial activity under control and his "allies" in check.

Later that day he had just openly addressed Zer'uil of house Sshamath of he would be interested in his little quest and as it was to be expected of a man of his standing that was probably bored by his life in wealth and abundance, he has accepted the offer pretending a lack of interest of course but K'yon knew he had sparked his interest.

Now he only one last ingredient and his quest for a demons heart could finally begin. The fellowship of the heart had come together. He chuckled to himself. The crazy one, being Renor, the sneaky drowess Ilhara, the scaredy cat brute Mehbrien, perhaps but very likely Zer'uil, the beautiful Aunrae and as leader and brain to hold them all together of course non other than he himself.

Contract


Hereby usstan swear to keep what was discussed and is going to happen on this venture to usstan and furthermore pledge to help K'yon Oblodra to slay the demon he desires dead without hesitation.

Sign here _____________

//I thank everyone who partook in this little session, I know K'yon can be a bit of a bitch to be around so thanks for enduring. As always I ask anybody reading this to keep it fair and not metagame. If anyone else wants to also join this "legendary crusade" feel free to get in contact I'd love to get us UDers involved and united.

After a harsh meeting with the high necromancer Lyra, K'yon sat down and began writing down the requested essays about "The Alterations of the Weave"

((Metamagic))

((Thanks Max and Aunrae for the great idea, looking forward to the reception of these!))

The Art of altering the Weave
by
K'yon Oblodra
and
Aunrae Releth

Abstract:
For this paper we looked into the different ways to alter the Weave and found a manifold of essential ways of doing so as well as multiple ways that were similar in their way of shaping the Weave yet different in specifics. Here we will talk about the different forms in general, in later papers we will go into details about each of the possible Alterations.


Introduction:
The worlds within the multiverse are magical places.
All existence is suffused with magical power, and potential
energy lies untapped in every rock, river, and living or undead
creature, and even in the air surrounding us. Raw magic is the stuff of creation, the mute and mindless will of existence, permeating every bit of matter and present in every manifestation of energy throughout the multiverse.

Mortals can not directly shape this raw magic. Instead, they
facilitate a fabric of magic, akin to strings, connecting the will of a mage to the very stuff of raw magic. Most sentient beings able to utilise said strings refer to them as the Weave.

While mages mostly call it the Weave others capable of manipulating it might have varied ways of naming and visualizing these strings. By any name, without the Weave, raw magic is locked away and inaccessible; the most powerful archmage can't light a candle with magic in an area where the Weave has been torn. However surrounded by the Weave, a mage can shape lightning to blast foes, transport hundreds of miles in the blink of an eye, or even reverse death itself.
All magic depends on the Weave, though different kinds of magic access it in a variety of ways. We will concentrate ourselves mainly on the weavings of mages and to some extent on that of bards.

Our spells rely on an understanding Iearned or intuitive, incase of bards and very likely sorcerers, of the workings of the Weave. The caster plucks directly at the strands of the Weave to create the desired effect. Whenever a magic effect is created, the threads of the Weave intertwine, twist, and fold to make the effect possible.

When mages use divination spells such as detect magic or
identify, they catch a glimpse of the Weave. A spell such as dispel magic smooths the Weave. Spells such as antimagic field rearrange the weave so that magic flows around, rather than through, the area affected by the spell. In places where the Weave is damaged or torn, magic works in unpredictable ways-or not at all.

Then there are the various ways to altering spells by pulling on said strings in a different fashion.
This enables the fine tuned arcanist to for instance lenghten the duration of spells cast by him, cast even incredibly difficult spells without physically moving or any of its somatic components. Others are able to cast their weavings at incredible speed and then there are ways to increase the devastating power of a spell or to maximise its effects entirely.

Author Contributions Statement :
K'yon Oblodra research on the Weave itself, the impact of specific spells onto the Weave and the different forms of altering the interaction with the weave.
Aunrae Releth research on the intuitive utilisation of the Weave as well as helping to further the understanding of certain forms of altering the interaction with the Weave.

((I hope that this knowledge is not too deep for K'yon to know, I honestly wouldn't think so as it would seem rather basic and the examples mentioned easy to derive, if however DMs should find this information unreasonable, I'll with a tear in my eye, change necessary parts. I hope this is somewhat enjoyable and will extend it further possibly resulting into a guide on the topic and very likely into a book in game. Please do tell what you think and if you see need for improvement or as mentioned before if any DMs object just shoot me a message))

Necromancer Lyra gives it a quick look over to check its not complete garbage and then throws it in her waste paper basket and goes off for a glass of wine.
