Of Mages
and Metalsmiths
YjgcHC5.png


Lightning has discovered a new form of technology that could in theory replace magic in everyday life completely. Its reception has been mixed between the flights. Arcane, Light, Nature, Water, and Wind dragons think using it would be disastrous and wish to destroy all evidence of this technology once and for all. But dragons from Earth, Fire, Ice, Plague, and Shadow territories think that it could do profound good and want it to be adopted and accepted into all parts of daily life. Debates turned to fights. Fights turned to war.

The future is uncertain and so is Lightning. Only time will tell who will win: the mages or the metalsmiths.




I started a coliseum challenge by Dreamnorn but real life pulled me away. Now I'm back with no memory of what I did besides the theme.

Oops.

Anyway, I'm here to give it another try with some fresh dragons. This thread will record my progress and notes. Most updates will just have my personal commentary which will include light jokes and jabs at my dragons. Occasionally I'll do just a little lore writing, probably when I get special effects and stuff. Most updates will use a format similar to this one made by Gender which was adapted from Dreamnorn's original.

The main rules for the challenge are here. :) I'm using the Neutral Entities and Carry Over optional rules, and the Extra Random rule for buying dragons. Starting at week 2 I also use the Loot Insurance and Priority Party optional rules.

I also don't plan on changing anyone's energy stones. I plan to stat dragons using the Sedona build for scratch users, Culex's mage build for meditate users, and the Ghostlight Anticitank build for anticipate users. This should minimize the number of eliminates I have to buy.

Dragons from each faction will be differentiated by apparel. The Mage's Guild will have mage hats, the Metalsmith's Coalition will have scale helmets, and "canyon crawlers" (my wandering dragons) will have rogue hoods.

I'll track this challenge with "challenge days." At the end of seven of these, "challenge rollover" takes place. I might make short lore updates on those days recapping the main events of the previous week. This way if I miss a day because of real-life stuff, I won't fall behind or lose count of how many days have passed.

Progress is progress and a lot of magic just ain't as efficient in comparison, you hear? ...You still there? Heh. Guess you may be more genuinely interested than I thought. Right. This way to face your trials. Prove your loyalty and worth and we might just make you a space in our liar. An interview, metalsmith test, and weapon test await you. Our standards are strict, but only because we want the best of the best. The Coalition may be new, but we hope to forge mighty stronghold held together with teamwork, trust, and fighting for what's right. We're like a family here, you know. Yeah, it's corny! So what?

The Metalsmith's
_____Coalition_____
YjgcHC5.png


So you want to join the Metalsmith's Coalition, eh? Then you'd best start growing a spine, chump. We don't got time for boasters and braggarts barging in and claiming they got what it takes for glory. If you're really interested, you'd best have only the good of our team at heart and our ideals wedged in your brain case. This tech ain't the monster the Guild is making it out to be. Progress is progress and a lot of magic just ain't as efficient in comparison, you hear?

...You still there? Heh. Guess you may be more genuinely interested than I thought. Right. This way to face your trials. Prove your loyalty and worth and we might just make you a space in our liar. An interview, metalsmith test, and weapon test await you. Our standards are strict, but only because we want the best of the best. The Coalition may be new, but we hope to forge mighty stronghold held together with teamwork, trust, and fighting for what's right. We're like a family here, you know.

Yeah, it's corny! So what? Deal with it and get to work!

Foundry the Forgemaster
Level: 7
LP: 12

A bubbly personality who loves collecting flowers, keeping the forge warm, and combusting small objects for pleasure. Her urge to gather can be distracting to herself and others.

Sandcast the Sharpshooter
Level: 7
LP: 10.5

An arrowsmith with deadly and precise aim. A gentle soul you can trust for honest answers, but if you want to live, never ask him where he got his lucky tail corsages from.

8hAAs8i.png
Ether the Explorer
Level: 7
LP: 10.5

Loves venturing far and wide to collect materials for the Coalition. Unafraid of getting dirty and going the extra mile. In fact, he never bathes, so his odor is known to offend.

Transitioned to the Metalsmith's Coalition when he sensed a "a change in the wind." Now he wants new goggles... badly.

Amidst a shrine of bones and steel lies a graveyard shrouded by shade. Broken artifacts glimmer dimly in the flickering lights of dusty bulbs strung together by rusting wires. Witnessing this firsthand is just as surprising to you as it is chilling. The War of Mages and Metalsmiths hasn't even begun that long ago, so why is this tomb made to honor fallen soldiers in so much disrepair...?

"Welcome."

The hoarse voice is startling. It seemed to have come from nowhere and it didn't sound draconic. You spin around.

UbnsRFg.png Do not be alarmed. I am Kronos, the keeper of this tomb.

...I am aware of the outside's state. It is intentional. The fewer come here, the less the fallen are disturbed. Though I speak with them on occasion to tend their graves to their tastes, I mostly let them rest. They had very hard lives and all I can give them now is peace in death.

But... if you wish to pay respects... leave them offerings of things they found significant in life. Perhaps if you do so, and hold your hand to their graves, you may see them as alive as they once were. Maybe they'll even whisper to you, telling of who they fought for and why they died.

With that, Kronos hobbled to the end of the tomb, lighting candles at an altar and immersing himself in prayer. You don't want to get into any trouble, as his ears are perked back towards you. But perhaps you will take him up on his offer...
