History

This place is full of both ancient and recent information. If it's magical or just plain odd, there's something related to it here. This place is believed to have been founded in 2,975 B.C. by the original Sorcerer Supreme. It is a once secret location that was used to to store ancient artifacts and information. The Sorcerer Supreme had compiled a vast of information that they had come across on their travels. Allies and colleges of the Sorcerer Supreme would have also donated a large amount of artifacts and information that they had. The building is located in what is now known as down town Metro City, 177B Blecker Street to be exact about it.

Many different magic users would come here to share knowledge with another and preform different practices for various reasons. However, like many things, this place was eventually forgotten and became a nothing but a myth. The reason being that many people back in the day weren't comfortable with practices that had occurred here. This prompted it to be closed and left to rot as time washed over its existence. But that all changed when the original Mister Surreal found this location and restored it to its former glory. He then used it as his home as well as lair afterwards, a mysterious place that would be unseen by public eyes for decades.

This location was inherited by new Mister Surreal shortly after the passing of the original, he has lived here ever since. He has had several great battles here, and used this place as pool of information and resources. He eventually decided that he could do a lot of good by sharing this place with others who may need it. Accesses to this place has once again been granted to general public so that all may be able to utilize what it has to offer. However, it still remains a place of sacred content, and should remain as such. In many ways, the location itself could be considered alive, and as such, only adds to it's strange and psychedelic nature.

Building Exterior

No Caption Provided

The sanctum has taken a neoclassical form from the outside, even though its look have changed greatly overtime in order to fit the style of the time period. While it may seem like an unremarkable, dusty, old building, it is actually an extraordinary place within, humming with arcane energies from countless regions across the multiverse. The building stands at a height of is four that is compounded and supported by 1,200 square ft. of space. But those are merely the dimensions of the sanctums's exterior.

The interior of the already massive structure actually much grander than how the exterior would suggest it to be. Through space-time manipulation magic, there are countless rooms and halls that exist inside of this location that are interconnected through interdimensional gateways. An extension of the structure's capability, it can rearrange itself to enhance its already extreme area, making unlimited amount of space inside of this building. This makes it so that the number of occupants inside of the sanctum do not have a finite capacity. Moreover, the building itself does not exist within a fixed point in space time, and can travel somewhat freely on any axis.

Main Hall

No Caption Provided

The sanctum, being the vast and chaotic place that it is within its enormous walls, can be quite difficult for the the average visitor to navigate. Decorated with candles, tables pots, chandeliers and the like, its instantly gives off an accurate impression as to what the archaic nature of the place is. As such, the main doors of the building lead directly to a long hall of numerous halls all of which the public have access to. This hall also happens to serve as a nexus between all locations that visitors are permitted to enter, and while cluttered with various objects objects, maps are also available, it proves quite effect to find one's way. For those who need directions, the layout of the permitted areas are located on the first map that they would encounter, for navigating the place can be quite difficult, one door always leading to three more. This is also the building's main exit.

Training Room

No Caption Provided

While violence for the sake of violence is by no means permitted in the sanctum, that does not include the practice of sparring in order to enhance ones power and tactical abilities in the throws of combat, a practice that is highly valued by practitioners of the sanctum when deemed necessary. As such, a training room of sorts had been provided in an isolated area within the sanctum in order to allow for a safe space for battling opponents, or simply for the practice of sharping one's skills, whatever they may be. The room is naturally accustomed changing its dimensions and environment to fit the number of combatants and their desires, though it exists in a resting state. Damaging the environment of this location is permitted, as the place is enchanted with a the nature of being able to repair itself moments after damage occurs. Beings of any power or skill level are welcome.

Dormitory

No Caption Provided

One of the most notable and important locations within the sanctum is is its massive library of information. Spanning the seemingly endless number of rows and shelves are a sea of countless books and ancient texts that ranges from the occult to the arcane, the list of selections including nothing short of history, mythology, philosophy, biographies, metaphysics, magical practices and so on. The knowledge contained here stems from all corners of the multiverse, and while by no means omniscient in its knowledge, it does however contain a broad selection of virtually all that could be inquired about the mystic, magical and supernatural. All books contained here may be borrowed for a total of two weeks, before being taken back to their original place. In order to select a book and check it out, one must simply approach the counter and ghostly librarian will appear to help them... Much like the ones who wander the place to see the peace being kept.

Artifacts Room

No Caption Provided

Throughout all of reality, there has never been a shortage of weapons and objects of great power that held capabilities that far grand death, destruction, rule or achievement. Trinkets and objects that can defy what one may think that they know, just as much as they could lay waste to entire slews of worlds. As such, a great many artifacts of power are held within this chamber, put on display by what would seem like nothing more than a glass case, but indeed protected numerous curses and charms as as means of defense. While these objects are mainly kept in display cases for the sake of basic education, some may be permitted to be used for various reasons, but only with the consent of the master of the sanctum. Overcoming said charms and curses would require either a skill or power level comparable to that of a supreme sorcerer, and if such attempt and attempt were successful, the result would be the sanctum's natural defenses taking places and ensnaring the perpetrator in the form of the very walls of the building itself.

The Halls of Healing

No Caption Provided

The sanctum has always been a place to help those who deserve it... Or to amend that statement, help those who need it, and help has been provided This area serves as being a med bay for those who are injured by anything inside or outside of the sanctum, especially if they are magic or spiritual based wounds. These halls are capable of healing people simply by them being inside of them. But those for those are severely injured, there are operating tables available for surgery, as well as all the needed supplies that goes along with them. If someone is just extremely tired or generally lacking in a lot of energy, they may lay in one of the beds here until they have become fully rejuvenated. If you feel like you have a mild injury or feel slightly sick, it is recommended that you come to this area and take a seat. Just taking a stroll through these halls may do you a world of good, from any physical ailments that you may have, mental, or otherwise.

Meditation Pad

No Caption Provided

The Meditation Pad is a room of spirituality serves as an excellent place for those who want to clear their mind, pray, or as the name would suggest, meditate. The room located away from the nosier areas of the building and is generally kept under the conceptual influence of being quite and peaceful, so that any person could stay here in near complete silence and tranquility. Many have found it to be extremely cathartic for them to be in this area and at times, it can even be a bit difficult for one to leave once they have entered and experienced its soothing atmosphere. But the most intriguing part has yet to come. This area has three different doors that lead to different locations, not in the sanctum, but the world itself. Just imagine where you want to go, turn the door nob and you will manifest a gateway there (keep in mind that the doors only register relatively safe places). For those who would like to make the most of their experience of this location, pads for comfort and books instructing in various relaxing methods exist in order to educate themselves on the various available practices.

Sanctorum

No Caption Provided

And finally, the Sanctorum. Located on the top floor of the building lies the most remote and mysterious aspects of the entire sanctum, the very the living quarters of the sanctum's master and their own personal study, in this case, the Sorcerer Supreme. While the entry into the building may be allowed by the master of the building as a public property, this area is owned and kept by the master's ownership, and they alone. This area provides the master of the sanctum with a desolate, quite and comfortable living space to carry on with their basic rituals, needs and living requirements, giving the access to all resources and materials that they may need or want: furnishing, books, weapons, food and water, ambiance, etc. It is a particularly sacred and exclusive aspect of the sanctum that may only be accessed by others if the master specifically states that they have their permission to enter. Otherwise, the consequences of invading location may be severe.

Defensive Measures and Security

While the location is one that is open to beings of all kinds, it does of course have certain protective measures in place that are designed to deal with all manner of potential threats that come upon the location. There are hundreds upon thousands of spells, charms, enchantments and even curses that restrict nearly any and all beings from being able to traverse or even enter the environment. The only cases of beings allowed to negate these rules being an instance of inconceivable magical or supernatural power:

  • Damage Reflection: Should someone attempt to break into the sanctum by using force, such as, attempting to break down the fronts doors or windows, they will find themselves being repelled by an invisible force that would will naturally resist the attacks set by whoever, or whatever it was that threatened the structural integrity of the location. While all objects collide will experience a residual force being applied back on the at the point of impact, the sanctum in particular is laced with a hex that will naturally reflect nearly any and all attacks onto the building back onto wherever it had originated from. being an attack of a blunt instrument, a blast of unspecified energy, otherwise.
  • Teleportation Rejection: The nature of the building is infused with powerful protections of godlike space-time magic that will naturally bend and manipulate the the regions of space and the very fabric of reality in order to maintain the integrity of the sanctum, counteracting intruders who would seek to appear within the sanctum by using methods that would normally be impossible. More specifically, methods pertaining to teleportation and the like. If one were to attempt to enter the building by using dimensional-breaching, spatial manipulation or physical projection or something of that ilk, the building's very extensional frequencies will act accordingly and nullify physical entry.
  • Paradoxes: Upon entry of a building, even the most impure of heart may be able to skulk about the regions of the location without necessary fear of being attacked or contained, however, that is only as long they follow the rules set in place for the sanctum. If they should attempt to steal an item, destroy property, attack another person or otherwise, they will find themselves in a situation most unfavorable. While the sanctum itself already exists as a complex set of halls and doors always leading to numerous more, the building is capable rearranging itself as its host dictates. Upon the master's realization that something has gone array, the building with lock all conventional methods of entering and exiting, doors windows and all, and turn each room and hall into an endless labyrinth of insanity.

However, certain rules will be revoked for visitors if the master of the sanctum allows them. These rules do not apply to the master themself (please sell defenses).

Occupation

As of now, there is a job being offered for those who are interested in making money. The library could currently use a librarian to help organize the books and sort of the location process of the other reading material. The time of service is 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, the wage is a flat rate of $800 a week but maybe enhanced based on performance.

More Information

This is an "in character thread" and an "out of character thread", so don't worry about how you respond here. Mister Surreal is also a "magical consultant", so I will be able to talk to you one on one if you would like to have a chat with me.

Rules and Regulations

  • Destructionof property - Only small scale destruction is allowed in this location, such as destroying a table, a shelf, or even damaging a wall. Anything more than that inside of the building, beyond the training room, is not permitted.
  • Theft of property - Any and all objects within this location are allowed to be taken without my consent, but please sell the sanctum's defenses.
  • Relocation - The matter of sending the sanctum outside of Metro City, to another reality, dimension, realm, universe, timeline, or otherwise needs to be cleared up with be before doing so.
  • Normal CVnU rules apply

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here or PM my Mister_Surreal account.

Have fun!

"Hold up one second while I get this home and put away." Lucy glances around, noticing the cameras are now looking away, so she grabs as many groceries as she can, runs home reeeeeeeeeally, really fast, puts her groceries away and repeats until her mountain of groceries are gone. Precisely a second later, she smiles at Mr. Surreal, "Now, I'm ready." She winks playfully at him before she hops through the portal.

Once inside his home, she is immediately amazed by how big it is, "Oh wow, this is awesome!"

"Thank you.", Matthew said as he closed the portal behind them. "I too was quite amazed by this place when I inherited it." Mister Surreal and Lucy were currently standing in one corner of the sanctum with a few chairs around. He walked over to one that was nearby and then offered Lucy a seat.

He could see how amazed she was by all that she was seeing before her eyes. "So, do you have any questions that you would like to ask?", he inquired.

Lucy seems to blur before disappearing for a moment or two before she comes back and has a seat. She didn't even disturb the air. A smile creases her beautiful face, "How did you inherit this place?"

Matthew looked down at his feet when Lucy asked that question. He didn't even think about having to answer that. "This place became mine shortly after my master had died. He passed this place off to me to protect in his will.", he said without making eye contact.

Matthew just sat in silence after answering her question. He did always blame himself for what happened that day.

Lucy places a hand on top of his, feeling sympathy for him, "I'm sorry you lost someone so important to you and I didn't mean to bring up a painful memory. I'd say he'd be very proud of you right now if he could see the man you have become."

?????'? ?????'? ???k?

It was a rehearsed and over used cliche, but that wasnt to say it lacked in its visual potency. One by one a string of all black, moderately bullet proof luxury sedans fell into formation alongside the curb outside the ScS. The calling card of the San'Vun Syndicate.

Metro City had never held much interest to the Voice Unheard. Or at least that had been true up until the secret sanctorum had become publicly known. Opening its esoteric doors for the first time and allowing the ordinary, a glimpse at the extraordinary. A waste as far as Yazhun was concerned. Such a supernatural privilege should be an exclusive right for those who's power held sway over the normal complacency of the average man or woman.

Yet for what the Shadoking sought to uncover demanded his personal attention. It could not, would, not, be left to chance.

The doors opened in ceremonious unison and the entire San'Vun entourage spilled out into the streets and onto the sidewalks. Black shades, black suits, black hearts. *Wait here* Yazhun signed with a quick flurry of articulated finger movements. Much to the uneasy reluctance of his people. His personal protective detail.

As he stepped inside the smell and ancient aesthetics filled him with a sense of the familiar. Tradition and lore dripped off every piece of art. Every cataloged and archived scroll. More then just a monument for the mystical arts, the Sanctum itself was a breathing extension of magical marination. A true treasure in a city of ill-repute.

No Caption Provided

Without hesitation the Black Hand slowly strolled through the grand hall towards the library. His uniquely negative shaded fingers tracing along the various volumes until stopping at one in-particular. Its magical pages full of living illustrations pre-dating any of equal merit or source. This was it. The one true book that could help the Voice Unheard unearth the greatest treasure the World had never known. A book of maps. A book of legend. A book of, the Last Dragons...

Matthew looked up at Lucy with the look in his eyes now being less solemn that it had been before. "Thank you. I hope that he is proud of me, wherever he is.", Matthew said as he leaned back into his chair.

"Now, I would like to ask you a question...", Matthew asked as he forwarded slightly. "How did you get your powers?"

Lucy has to admit, she knew that question was coming. This time, it's her turn to look uncomfortable and look away, "My father experimented on me using all kinds of chemicals before electrocuting me...repeatedly. If I hadn't gotten my powers, I'd either be dead or I'd have serious burns all over my body."

Lucy loves her powers, she loves what she can do. But the price she payed to have them... She can only imagine how horrified Matthew might feel after hearing this. What kind of sick monster would do that to their own kid?

A rather gorgeous young woman looks up from the book she had been reading. Wait...she wasn't there a moment ago. Then again, this place is a magical place. She smiles politely at the Voice Unheard, "That book is a fascinating read. The living illustrations really bring out the detail of the book. So, your interested in Dragons, hmm? Amazing creatures, but don't believe all the legends you hear about them. Not all of them are evil, some are quite intelligent and are fun to have a debate with. I should know, I used to know some Dragons before I arrived in the modern world."

Then this woman suddenly looks embarrassed, "Oh silly me, I forgot to introduce myself. I am Brenna Luther. Co-Sorcerer Supreme to the one who owns this place. May I ask why you seem to be so interested in that book and who you are?"

Matthew's face only showed horror in return to what Lucy had just told him. He had seen and experienced many unspeakable terrors in his line of work, it was simply inevitable. But he very rarely had to deal with matters that were this...real. Everything else felt like it was some bedtime story from a book, but this hit closer to home than any of those experiences.

"My god...I'm so sorry", Matthew said as held her hand in his. "No human could do that to their ownchild. I'm sorry that I asked you.", Matthew could see the sadness and pain in her eyes. He could barely believe that she had that in her past. He also couldn't believe that despite her childhood, she became the woman that sat before him today. She could just have easily turned into a violent sociopath who used her powers for selfish reasons. But she instead became a hero did nothing but help other people. Matthew then leaned in and gave her another hug.

Not a man to startle easily or forfeit his stoic demeanor in a sub-conscious moment of mental distraction, Yazhun barely acknowledged the sudden, all be it alluring voice. Or at least that was until he observantly picked up on the stranger's very specific use of language.

Not all of them are evil,

No Caption Provided

Are. Not were. And so it was to be this sentence alone which promoted the surrender of his undivided attention.

However without the subordinate aid of his loyal orators, he was forced to convey his interest through physical articulation rather then verbal communication. *Are there any left?* he inquired with the use of his hands and fingers. Slowly signing but unsure if the apparent mistress of the mystical myths would understand. Yet he had faith she would not be yet another disappointment uneducated in the finer points of sign language. In his opinion one of thee purist forms of communication.

Sliding his hands up along the pressed collar of his suit holding the edges on either side with prestige and pride, he smiled before removing one hand to sign his name. *I am Yazhun San'Vun of House San'Vun. The Voice Unheard. The Shorinji Shadoking.* Returning his hand to its aristocratic position he socially bowed, as he did with most meetings he considered of an honorable accord. But notably omitting his immediate interest as it pertained to the spectacular book itself.

Brenna recognizes sign language and it's simple to understand...with a little magic. The gift of understanding and a rather simple thing to use. She doesn't even need to use her hands to make a gesture or say a word. Just a look, that is all it takes. Oh...and a bit of mental focus but that part is relatively small.

After he introduces himself, Brenna rises from her chair and walks out from behind her desk and bows in return and choosing to treat him with the same honor and respect he has chosen to treat her. "It's nice to meet you, Mr. San'Vun. And to answer your question; Dragons, as humans know them, no longer exist thanks to being hunted to near extinction." She frowns at that, glancing away for a moment and remembering her friendship with a few of them.

Then Brenna looks at Mr. San'Vun, "I say near extinction because some ancient texts say that the few that survived escaped this world and went to another in order to ensure their survival. Sadly, there aren't many surviving texts because the Dragons didn't want any humans to come after them, so they destroyed all the evidence they could that would seem to indicate where they went. But, as I have learned through my time on Earth, nothing remains hidden forever. May I ask why you seem so interested in Dragons?"

@mister_surreal: Lucy hugs him back, wiping a tear from her cheek and then takes a deep breath, "It's okay, you didn't know and my father is in jail. The first thing I did with my speed was convict him of illegal experimentation and child abuse. He escaped recently, gaining speed of his own but I put him back in."

-Of course- he internalized with silent disgust. *Humans have little regard for true beauty. Little to no understanding of supernatural purity.* signing and shaking his head, sharing in the Sorceress' obvious but temporary bereavement. Tucking one arm behind his back systematically curating his cultural affluence, he proceeded to look around the room and take in its otherworldly enticements. *Dragons have always been part of the Japanese tradition and folklore. Esteemed and sacred creatures. The San'Vuns religiously believe themselves to be pure blood decedents of the Ryō. But as you so profoundly pointed out, much of their true history has been lost or destroyed. Much. But not all.*

With little effort the Voice Unheard flipped the lone button of his jacket lose and expanded the quarters outwards. Taking a seat, crossing his legs and adjusting his shoulders for maximum comfort, he stared at the mystical mage with serene attention. Using his fingers he requested, *Please, tell me more. I would be honored if you would share with me all of what you.*

*Humans have little regard for true beauty. Little to no understanding of supernatural purity.*

Sad but true. At least in most cases. There is the rare exception, but most of the time it's true. "Indeed. Humans also fear what they don't understand." And she knows that all too well. Yes, Brenna may be human herself, but she uses magic and that alone has made her a prime target of persecution in times's past more than once because of a lack of understanding.

Then when San'Vun asks her to tell him more, she smiles as she also sits down and makes herself comfortable, "If I told you everything I know about Dragons, you'd have to live here. I'll try and summarize."

Then she thinks of a tale, "As you may know already, Dragons have appeared in legends all over the world. America, Japan, China, Europe and many more countries. What the legends don't say is more interesting than what they actually do say. A lot of myths and legends tell of evil dragons killing humans or burning down villages. This is true to some extent, but it's not nearly as exaggerated as the legends tell it. There were plenty of Dragons who were wise, benevolent beings who acted as protectors, philosophers and teachers. But then it all changed when Cinder showed up. A rare Black Dragon, large and powerful. A lust for power like no other Dragon before or after her. She started the Dragon wars and she is responsible for the Dragon's poor reputation, but you won't find very many references to her as most documents concerning her have been destroyed. It's almost as if no one wants anyone to know who Cinder is or what she did."

The Dragon Wars? That kind of thing has never been written about. If it's true, then what was the Dragons Wars about? And how does Brenna know it's true? And who is this mysterious Dragon known as Cinder? Brenna never once looks away, talking as if she's been there. Almost as if she lived it.

He found the conversation fascinating. Such a profound understanding of Dragons could be met with nothing less then humbled intrigued. The San'Vun Shadoking's mind raced through the sparced together fragments of memory, of tales his mother had told him as a child. Legends, myths, stories. Yet even then he knew there had to be more. Had to be something tangible.

Leaning in, arms folded yet extended beyond the halfway point of the table, he swiftly swiped the book to the next page. A page with little more then a faded illustration of an egg. He let the silence linger for a moment gently rapping his finger on the picture to drive home his unspoken intent. Eventually assuming a more relaxed and withdrawn posture, once again angling into the back of his chair with folded leg stoicism, he shrugged before signing, asking really; *Where?*

@yazhun_sanvun:

So, that's what he wants. Brenna thinks to herself. Through kindness, and a story or two, she is able to determine what this man wants without resorting to demands. Demanding an answer from him was her first instinct the first moment she layed eyes on him. But no, she chose to be polite and it payed off.

Could Brenna trust this man with the location of a Dragon's egg, if one even exists? She decides that if San'Vun is determined enough, he's going to get his hands on one with or without her. Let the Dragon's themselves decide if he is worthy. "Remember when I said that Dragons were hunted to near extinction and that they fled to another world to escape persecution? A Dragon's egg, I'm afraid, can be found no where on Earth. But there are ways to obtain one or even simply observe. Do you believe in other dimensions, Mr. San'Vun? As the Sorcerer Supreme, I have traveled to many of them. That is where you will find a Dragon's egg. The dimension that the Dragon's fled to, a dimension that leads to their world. But, if you wish to go, I must give you a fair warning. They do not trust our kind, they will look upon you as a trespasser and an enemy. I can show you where that dimension is, I can even open a portal to it. But the dangers that lurk within are yours alone to take for I cannot go with you. If you wish a Dragon's egg, it must be earned for if you steal an egg, you will incur the wrath of the mother. And that mother will never cease hunting you. Me being there with you would ruin that if you decided to earn the right to have an egg. In the meantime, I can show you something."

Brenna snaps her fingers and pulls something from the air. It's an egg! But...it looks more like a rock. She brings it over to him, showing him the intricate details of it, "This is part of my personal collection. This is a petrified Dragon's egg. When I found it in Nupal inside of a cave, I decided to keep it as a reminder of the tragedy that happened to them."

They egg has a cracked hole in it. Inside of the egg is empty. One question lingers. How does one earn the right to have a Dragon's egg?

@knight101:

He sat there silently for what seemed like an eternity. His facial expressions conveyed nothing, and betrayed little to nothing of his sub-conscious calculations. Finally, while staring straight ahead at his gracious host, his finger's began to slowly sign; *How much?* As in how much to purchase her expertise and physical guidance through the portal she had so openly suggested. How much to abandon her previous statement and accompany him and his Shinobi Death Cult as they attempted to obtain the impossible.

And although she did not know it yet, the Voice Unheard would not take no for an answer. One way or the hard way, as far as he was concerned, she was going to say yes.

At first, Brenna doesn't get his meaning. First, she thinks he wants the cracked petrified egg for a price and she is about to give it to him as a gift. But then she discerns his true meaning. One way or another, he's not going to give her the option of saying no. He wants a Dragon's egg and he wants her help to obtain one weather she wants to or not.

Unfortunately for Mr. San'Vun, he shouldn't have presumed too much about assuming he can get her to help him by force. She is the Co-Sorceress Supreme and she does not fear him or his power. She is perhaps one of the few on the planet who can say no. She smiles, but not politely as an eldrich flame erupts from her hand and her eyes glow white. The cracked petrified egg vanishes in a puff of smoke, "The reason I was so open to you about all this, Mr. San'Vun was because I wanted to know your intentions. And now that I do, I will not help you...for any price. And if you think to presume that you can force me to say yes, then your forgetting something."

Brenna snaps her fingers and Mr. San'Vun might find himself back in Tokyo, Japan. Brenna is no where in sight, but her voice whispers in his ear, "I'm a very powerful Sorceress." Her voice sounds like a slight echo, as if she's far away. "Do not try and return to the Sanctum. From this day forth, it's magic doors are closed to you. And if you try to find me and force me into this, I'll turn you into a pig." Brenna's voice fades away, leaving the man alone.

Brenna immediately searches for @mister_surreal and if/when she finds him, then she tells all that has just transpired, "And I know this is your home, not mine, but it wouldn't hurt to use a little magic to make sure he cannot enter this place or find it again."

@yazhun_sanvun:(OCC: Please let me know if this is okay, if not, I can edit and you have my utmost apologies for moving your character. )

@knight101:

Mister Surreal was sitting in the sanctroum as he studied a book studiously, only to notice Brenna who had just entered the room. Matthew listened quietly as he took in what Brenna had to say, sitting in his chair as he stared into her eyes with each passing moment. He was hardly surprised by the events that had transpired, in fact, he was surprised that it had not happened any sooner that it did. Opening his doors to the public was a very bold move, especially considering all of the people out there who would like nothing more than to take advantage of the opportunity. People like Mr. San'Vun were everywhere and made his life more difficult than it already was.

Once Brenna had finished explaining everything that she needed to, Mister Surreal stood up from his chair. "First of all, Brenna, I want you to remember that this is not only my home but yours as well.", he said as he took her hands into his. "Second of all, I do see your point and I have thought about this carefully." He tilted his his neck slightly as he readjusted his head. He paused as he got lost in her eyes once again. "Before I do something as final as banning this man from the sanctum, I would like to have a word with him. I think that we should learn more about him before seeing him off. But if you don't want him here, then I will keep him out. "

Before he could react. Before the Voice Unheard could loosen his jaw and let go with his devastating assault of audio brilliance, he was gone. Near instantaneously returned to the neon lit ambiance of Tokyo, Japan. Home. The Sorceress Supreme's words trailed off into the ether, but were recorded to memory for he would never forget them. Not out of fear or noted warning. No. For him it was a declaration of vendetta. He had foolishly shown his hand and been dealt a temporary, all be it inconvenient set-back. But he would return one day soon. And he would bring the full force of his rebuilding Syndicate with him. Mystic masters or not, he would get what he had come for. That, and now so much more.

@mister_surreal:

Brenna has to smile at that, "Thank you, Matthew, that means a lot me. It's nice to have a second home." Aside from the Nexus of Eternity that is. Which, she REALLY needs to show Matthew one day. But then at the second thing Matthew says, Brenna frowns softly. "Could you perhaps have a word with him outside of this place? Or maybe it's better to have it here since your the master of this place and not him. That way, he can't set a trap and if he does manage to set one, you have the home field advantage. I don't trust him, Matthew. He's the type that won't accept no for an answer."

Then Brenna takes a deep breath, bowing her head for a moment before raising her face to look into those enchanting eyes of his, "The Dragons are my friends, my allies. Well...some of them anyway. I will not betray them by stealing an egg from them, nor will I ask for an egg. Dragons do not belong on Earth anymore, there's a reason they left. And every fiber of my being tells me this Mr. San'Vun will use a Dragon's egg to hatch a Dragon and use that creature for evil. If I give him an egg, I become part of that evil. So, he's going to have to accept the fact I won't say yes. So, if you must talk to him, be cautious. Oh...and I recommend talking to him through an illusion of yourself. Do not be physically present with him. I sense a great and terrible power within that man."

@zephyr186:

Matthew was still fairly surprised by what had come of this woman despite the pain that she had endured in the past. But he was no less upset with himself over not being there to stop the whole matter. "It may not be my fault, but I still wish that I was there to help you." The irony, a sorcerer making a wish. He looked down as his eyes glazed over, only to look back up and give a meek smile in response to Lucy's optimistic statement. "At least something good came out of your troubles; a hero that the world needs.

Brenna can easily hide in her home known as the Nexus of Eternity. A place where very few, if any, assassin can actually get to. But she refuses to live in fear. Men like Mr/ San'Vun won't take no for an answer. But thinking back on those events with him, she realizes she may have acted in haste. She should have asked more questions. But it's far too late now and she senses a storm brewing on the horizon. A hidden danger lurking in the shadows and waiting to devour her if she let's it.

But Brenna is the Co-Sorceress Supreme along with Matthew Walker. She doesn't fear what Mr. San'Vun will do. She has faced beings both big and small who were far more intimidating. So, come what may, she waits for the inevitable outcome of her potential mistake. A smile creases her lips, thinking she's going to rather enjoy defeating San'Vun's purposes if he happens to send some people after her. Perhaps then he will learn not to mess with such a powerful Sorceress.

The normalcy of the day was instantly interrupted as an illuminated sphere of esoteric energy burst into existence. The surge causing vehicles to swerve off the road and into nearby shops and eateries. It even took down an entire electrical grid, as sparks and live wires wickedly danced around with unchecked freedom. Unleashed to inflict as much carnage as possible to those nearby or caught off guard by the unexpected catastrophe.

"Metro City...what a shitwhole." Her voice was serpentine. Her costume, sexually provocative. BDSM leather with a matching mask for added illicit visual effect. Her partner said nothing. Towering over her, he's Victorian garb was a reminder of a forgotten era. His ivory mask bore no expressive interpretation. His cloak was black as night. There names were lost to history but each one was a member of the Wicked Wands. A group that had undergone many transformations in its secretive existence. And now seemed tethered to the bidding of the Voice Unheard. Summoned to bring forth his vengeful retribution after having been banished from the mystical monument known as the ScS.

"Well my darling. Shall we begin?" she wickedly grinned. Standing out front of the Sanctum. Her slender fingers reached into her outfit and when they reemerged, they were stylishly coiled around an object ingrained in the superstitious minds of people both young and old. To call it a wand would be to do it a disservice. For few items in the Universe were as deadly as wand in the hands of a magical magistrate.

With perfect timing the unnamed duo subtly flicked their now weaponized hands, casting luminescent streams of unexplained energy. Seeking to blow open the main doors and seek out their target.

@yazhun_sanvun: (OOC: Sorry it took so long to get to this. >.<)

As the evil magicians try and blow the doors open, magical wards spark in protest as they protect the door, making an odd pinging noise. Suddenly the Sanctum seems to come alive with eyeballs and the door for a mouth. It glares angrily at the two would be assassins, "Oh for crying out loud! Can't people knock now-a-days?! If you want to come in so badly, all you have to do is KNOCK!" It's eyes turn to the side, as if the Sanctum's attention is turning elsewhere, "One moment, please." It says to the two magicians.

After a moment, the Sanctum turns it's menacing eyes towards the two assassins, "Looks like the lady of the house wants you inside. So, COME HERE!" The house opens the doors, or it's 'mouth' if you wish to call them that, and all of a sudden the magicians might feel themselves attempted to be pulled inside, much like a black hole likes to swallow things in space.

Assuming the Sanctum is successful, Brenna's voice will be heard all around them with a slight echo, "Welcome to my home. I'd offer you both something to drink, but we all know your not here for such pleasantries. Mr. San'Vun sent you to kill me, didn't he? Well, he will be most disappointed."

Brenna emerges from behind a corner of a hallway, "You have two choices. Leave and I will spare your lives. Stay and try and kill me, I'll send you both back to Mr. San'Vun in pieces." Her eyes glow with a menacing purple light as she crosses her arms.

@mister_surreal:

Night time in Metro City was always a refreshing sight. It wasn't anything like Gothic city, which always brought out a feeling of dread and danger. Didn't change the fact there still was danger and mystery however. Something that had both qualities was a building, or at least Aranea was convinced there was something odd about it.

There had been multiple reports by both police and bystander of fantastical lights and noises erupting from this place. It was always brushed off as paranoia, but the Spider's curiosity got the better of him and it didn't take long for him to go and investigate.

Aranea was perched on a rooftop opposing the mysterious building, he'd been there for about half an hour now. "Hmm. Doesn't seem all that spooky. Looks more like a museum, but a boring one... A paperclip museum? It'd be a waste to swing all this way and not take a closer look, right?"

The hero removed his hood and leaped across the street in a single bound, sticking right against the window where he landed. "Pretty neat design, doesn't look like it's from any culture I know about though." He thought to himself, peering into the window to inspect what was inside.
