Take the Magic: The Gathering 'What Color Are You?' Quiz.
Swift sat upright swiftly he had found it the bit on knowledge he had ben looking for, quickly he scribbled the fine details done upon the tablets, then with a huge smile he organized them and set them aside. It had waited this long it could wait a bit longer first he had 1 other thing that needed done for tablets were to much they took up to much room and swift had thought of a better way to document the events of the world.
Swift summoned forth some of his power creating a leather bound book, Upon the pages of the book text began to etch itself with golden letters, the edges of each page were lined in a very thin silver and the cover set with many different gems. The book continued to scroll text upon it’s open pages as it did the tablets faded out there text appearing within the pages of this book every so often a spectral figure would glide away from the book and place a much smaller book upon the shelves of the great library.
Within short time all of the tablets had ben replaced by leather bound books each titled and organized, for now these books stood out upon a single full shelve each one containing divine knowledge and each one would help with the creation of divine objects.. But soon these book would be much harder to find as the shelves already began to fill with the events of the past,
The book in the center of the Library documenting everything that had already happened every so often sending it’s spectral librarian off to place another book from it’s pages onto the shelves. Though the book scrolled fast and constantly flipped pages it seamed to always be opened to the center instead producing new books from it’s pages rather then actually flipping pages. And so it was that swift gathered the 1 book he would need and left the library to do it’s work.
The library would soon fill it’s shelves and create new ones after that, the shelves within would constantly move each day a new subject would be addressed, each moon cycle a new power available to access. The book would open this knowledge for the gods to use so long as it’s one true owner allowed them to freely enter the library.
Swift floated away from the library down to the earth below reading the book as he went, he could not believe he had forgotten such knowledge so soon after he learned it but with his great library in place he was sure he would not lose the knowledge again.
Swift began to pull on the strings of reality and as he did all the draconic creatures within could feel a divine eye fall upon them, they could feel swift presence as he bound himself and the draconic essence together. His children felt comforted they would know that swift would watch over them and all of there brothers and sisters.
The chromatic dragons however felt themselves being bound to a strange god who they did not know, and as such swift became fully aware of the chromatic dragons, He for the first time could truly sense them. This was not necessarily his intent as he never knew those mighty beasts were of the same as his children. This he would need to look into further. With his task done the book he had read vanished from his grasp to once again return to the great library.
With his new connection Swift knew much would need to be done, he summoned forth some of the gems from the ground beneath him the gems of all varius shapes and sizes glittered in the sun. These gems were particularly large and valuable for there kind and swift smiles, slipping them into a pouch at his side swift flew off to where he knew a very large Red dragon laired, He knew this was one fo the strongest of the reds and it had amassed a large hoard. It would be proper to start with the strongest after all.
Swift landed at the entrance to the dragons cave and it could feel his divine presence, however swift realized he had no way to communicate with the creature as yet. As such he fashioned himself a mortal form in his own image so he could be Sean by the draconic creatures of the world.
So it was that swift stood there waiting for the strongest of the red to respond to his presence outside it’s cave.
0PP Fashion Domain Draconic- Swift takes up the active domain of Draconic - all things draconic become bound to him and him to them. They are not forced to warship him but they will always feel his presence and them his. 1 PP stored from the action in post #248 and 1PP provided by the great library.
2PP Craft artifact - The great book -this book for now only documents the events of the world past and present and produces new books with this info in them that get placed within the library for now all it can do is create the books more PP will be spent on it soon to expand it’s uses.
2PP Craft Avitar - Swift created a avitar in his own immage so that he may direcly interact with his children and draconic kind.
OOC: Tag anubis I think chromatic dragons are your creations at least, swift is standing outside the strongest red dragons cave in avitar form waiting for it to great him. Because of his new domain it should be able to sense his close presence and recognize him with ease.
0PP remaining 1 command from glitter remaining.
As swift stood there the Red dragon slowly stepped out of the cave being very sure to take it’s time, but this is what swift expected the dragon was making sure that it was meeting swift on it’s terms and time.
Swift Bowed to the large dragon and offered up the small pile of rare gems he had brought, “I know your kind covets gold but I bring you yet another rare thing found within the earth and give it to you as a gift. For gems will be coveted by the mortal races and useful in many things so it seams fitting that the mighty dragons hoard them like gold to add to there expanding hoard.
The Red dragon looked to the small pile of gems, it had to agree that they were appealing and surely not as abundant as gold had ben. This would defiantly be a good addition to it’s hoard. The mighty dragon snatched the gems up with a clawed hand and asked swift to speak further, he did not like the god who would forcefully bind itself to him yet he also did not dislike this god, he could sence a kinship of sorts and would listen.
Swift and the dragon talked long before finally reaching a agreement, The dragons would warship swift however, would not warship him in his current form. As such swift would be tasked with making something they could warship in swifts stead. Swift would work on this later. Further the dragons grew bored with simply gathering the gold of the world and watching for this swift was tasked with making things for them to rule over and manipulate,
But the great dragons demands would not end here for it could sense the power of psionics however because of it’s connection to the weave the dragon could not use them so swift was tasked with making a form of psionics that was neither part of nor apart from the weave, this form of psionics would only be usable to dragons but would be usable even though the dragons used magic from the weave allowing dragons to use both effectively.
Lastly though the dragons were mighty they were to few in number and still not strong enough so swift was tasked with increasing there numbers and with making them a place where dragons could gather to compare hoards.
Though the dragon had asked a lot swift knew that he held sway over the other chromatic dragons and they would follow his lead in this, As such swift agreed to the list of terms, the terms would be worth it to have his children united in there warship if not love of him.
After there talk swift left returning to his deific form and back to his island, he took note of the large city starting to form across the sea and would help them soon but for now he would talk with glimmer and figure things out.
OOC: anubis gave me permission to do with the dragons as I wanted and isn’t sure if he will come back I suggested he message admin or post on OOC forums to the effect but have the message all the same. So am taking controle of chromatic dragons as my own creation.
List of things swift will do at some point near or far subject to change as the game goes onMake a new avatar for chromatics to warshipMake a exarch to lead the chromaticsMake a special home for dragon kind within the prime materialMake a new form of psionics (should be a 0PP action)Nourish the dragons and help them grow and expandMake races for the dragon to control and useExpand the influence of the draconic races of the world.Those are the things swift agreed to when convincing the dragons to follow him
After talking with Glimmer for a long time catching up on what he had missed swift set to planning the first task was making a form of psionics that could be used my weave users, swift still did not like the weave his interactions with the god of magic had very much soured that for him however he had made the promise.
It did not take him long to design the new form of psionics, the weave friendly psionics he decided would only be usable by those with draconic blood, he did not even like it existing however the dragons whished it so draconic kind alone would be able to use it.
As such he tied the new psionics into the blood of all dragon kind, because this psionics was effected by the weave and could be used alongside the normal magic’s of the weave swift dubbed it dragon magic, however it assuredly was not truly magic. But then the difrences between magic and psionics were primarily only different in source anyhow and the name sounded good to Swift.
Next swift set forth the task of gathering energies from across the realm so he could create the other tasks he swore he would make, He glanced to the great library, it could wait but eventually he needed to finish the crafting of his prize treasure.
0PP - Swift foot made a separate kind of psionics stronger then normal psionics and only usable by draconic kind, the new psionics does not force the user to give up there connection to the weave as such may be used alongside of normal magic. This new psionics fuels many of draconic powers now and the combination of it and weave magic is referred to as draconic magic.
