PostSubject: The Rideps Family Manor   Tue Jun 30, 2015 2:06 am

First topic message reminder :

A large mansion in the middle of (BLAH) Forest, it is rumored to have stood on this land since before the first trees grew in the area. The outside has a rustic look, with ivy climbing some of the walls in a tasteful manner. It seems it may have been put there intentionally, decades past.

The inside, while gigantic, is very well kept. It has a sprawling underground, with only the residents really knowing how many rooms there may be. The largest, however, is the library. The hall of records for all things necromancy, or related to such.  Painstakingly gathered by the family over the years, it also includes incident reports for a myriad of things.  There is no way someone could go through it all in their lifetime.  Even walking the long and short of it in a day is taxing, ignoring all of the vertical space. Near the entrance are two weapon stands, labeled "Ouroboros" and "Scheherazade". Weapons forged by the smith Kuro generations ago to help the family in their efforts to keep the undead in check, and serve the good of the nation. The halberd Ouroboros hangs on its rack, barely touched for years. Scheherazade's rack, however, is empty, as Amelia Rideps has taken it as her weapon of choice.

Despite the cleanliness, there are drastically fewer living here than there were not too long ago. Many of the servants, created over the generations, were unmade recently. There are more guests than workers now, though they help out.  Several of the bedrooms are left eerily undisturbed, as well.  And another goes unused for long stretches, and then is torn to pieces before sitting empty again.

"M-mother..." He mumbles in embarrassment, trying to pull away.

Zeig looks like he's about to reply, but just gives a resigned expression instead.

"Alright..." He says, finally having given up, and sets to it.

Zeig felt a bit like a little kid again, curled up against Azhi on his bed, a book between his knees and his glasses nearly falling off his face. If Amelia hadn't still been out on a trip with Yanshi, he could've imagined her right there next to him. There was certainly plenty of space along the demon lizard's back.
Demons, right. Back to the immediate reality and the book in front of him.
He was trying to decide on the next creature to summon, thinking perhaps he could take it to the next level of circle complexity safely enough. If worse came to worst, there was plenty of protection around. But it wouldn't, he had gotten too good at this sort of thing to make an error. He was a prodigy, after all.
Let's see, here... Blusten, Lalyata, Desco, Nazl'lik, Gadruo... Too many to choose from, and all equally interesting...
Demonology was really something of a hobby to him, not something he thought much of making a career out of. Then again, he had more or less the same approach to every project he took on from both interests. Magitek device that created a light ball that could be grabbed and thrown around? Hobby. Hellfire demon with six mouths and a propensity for specifically attacking elves, or at least seemed like it? Hobby.
Part of him felt like he should try to make something of it, but the other part of him asked 'why?'
Not like he was going to make money summoning demons, and the kingdom had a whole team of magitechnicians already.
He was content, for the most part, with staying inside with his family.
Grabbul... Undead demon, requires sixteen layers and is claimed to occasionally cross on his own...
He held a level gaze with the page before shuddering in sudden apprehension and closing the book.
Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to go outside... Even without Amelia around, Azhi can protect me...
Now, Azhi, Azhi was an interesting subject for the young man. One of the first demons he summoned, and still the strangest. Perfectly contained with a single layer, and yet it held enough power to easily demand fifteen. And for whatever reason... It acted like a pet. There was no doubt of its power, it had demonstrated it at least once or twice, but it had never shown any signs of turning on Zeig, even in the moments after the circle was tripped over and broken. The moment it was summoned, it just seemed linked to him.
Not that he minded. That was the good kind of unpredictability. Not like zombies, which couldn't be put behind walls of paint and picked apart with the knowledge of generations of summoners. Demons were easy to handle.
A lot of things were easy to handle, of course.
Zeig leaned his head back against his friend, closing his eyes. It was getting late, and his sister would be back soon. Wouldn't do to go sleeping on them.
Before long, he drifted off, snoring lightly. Azhi curled a bit closer to him, resting its big head in his lap. It would wait until he woke up before returning to its home space, to wait until it was called for again.
It could hardly wait.

Morgan steps out of the bathroom, having just finished her usual morning routine and wondering why she seemed to be by herself.

"Good morning, Dear." She sees a full breakfast spread on the table in front of her, and no kids there to already have eaten half of it.

"Well, what's it look like? It's not a bicycle, I can tell you that." He grins at her tiredness.
