Kita Blackthorne


Race / Imp

Sorcerer / Summoner


A fashionable Imp with gothic flair, Kita seems to be the epitome of your typical black mage. She wields dark elemental magic using elaborate hand gestures. Despite her allegiance to Scale Emblem, she doesn't seem particularly interested in pushing the tower. Instead, she heads up the Lost Adventurer Network, an unaffiliated volunteer group which does artistic missing person posters. Trapped along with her girlfriend, Jurou, the two are known to adventure together. She can sometimes be found strumming random riffs on a lute which sound oddly like melodies from the little known J-rock band Prophetic Underground.

"We are kind of trapped here against our will, so excuse me if I don't fart rainbows of enthusiasm for the the place." - Kita Blackthorne

But with the goblins backed into a corner, and their new leader surely commanding the keep's defenses personally, reclaiming the citadel will by no means be a small task.

Duty Session 399: Karluin Reclamation - Town 2021 December 23rd
Even with the defeat of the fifth floor boss, Karluin is still a monster-infested ruin filled with precarious traps, ancient dangers and just plain old fashioned half-collapsed architecture. Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

LOONS Assemble! 2022 May 1st
An irregularly scheduled meeting of the Loosely Organized Open Network of Students (we need a name with a better acronym...)

Open social meant to continue as long as people want to keep it going, so it's possible the scene might be going even a long time after the starting time (to accomodate different timezones).

OOC: Scene to discuss findings and Lore. Open to anyone who's willing to participate in the cross-alliance effort to crack the Alv Language with the main goal of getting the Chaos Gates working again. Other related Lore (especially about Song) is likely to turn up. The only requirement for taking part to the group is accepting the principle of open research with Responsible Disclosure (results deemed potentially dangerous will not be published for the public at large) and sharing of any information found.
