    A1.0 - Académie de Conflict

    Post by ★Yuki~♪ on Thu Oct 13, 2016 2:45 am

    People are petty, always thinking about themselves. Luckily for them there are those who would think about others for them and lighten their terribly heavy burden from them - usually in the form of money. It's really quite easy on a day like this; Lots of people. Lots of chatter. Distractions as far as the eye can see, and all of that makes this almost a joke.

    Meanwhile a few minutes later, in a different part of the building...

    Info
    Rauj has joined.

    New Rotation: Yuki -> Rauj

    Investigation
    It's rare that things just fall into place by itself when you're looking for something. Often times you will have to go out of your way to find ways to extract information. Feel free to get creative. Anything from overhearing conversations to digging through someone's personal belongings and reading their notes to intercepting letters and messages can be a good way to go about this... but there are also other methods, like through force and violence, or through bribes.
    Close

    ...After having attempted to find clues as to where this key might belong to Rauj finally finds himself with some rough answers. A mage, likely a teacher based on his looks, is talking to a colleague of his, neither of them paying any mind to Rauj. Whether because they are occupied or because he is simply that good is best not questioned.

    "It's true." the man in the red robe exclaims while the man in the dark blue suit shakes his head and retorts; "Well I hear they've been quite busy in the labs. One of the Acolytes that recently moved in here is supposedly working with one of the professors on some 'revolutionary new product'."
    The robed man frowns questionably. "Professor... what was his name? Winters?"
    "Yes, Professor Winters and Acolyte Kaavi. Down in Lab 52." the other reminds him.
    The robed man seems almost shocked.
    "Why, if that's the case. Whatever they are working on must be worth a fortune. I just wish that some day I could work on a project like that... until then it's teaching the common rabble, right?"
    The two men laugh and part ways.

    Rauj decided to leave the odd group undisturbed for the moment, figuring that if they lived up to their looks he'd be running into them again soon, and attempts to find a few hints on any particular goodies that this 'fountain of knowledge' may be holding.

    After a few minutes of merely strolling on no particular path, using all his senses to hopefully at least gain some info as to where his most recent acquirement led, he finally happened upon a conversation that caught his interest. He slows his steps and peeks into the room. Two men, one in red and the other bearing blue. He walks past the room as they mention the two main contributors in this 'product'.

    "Hm hmm..." he muttered to himself at the two men conversed. A 'revolutionary' project... he notes the modicum of surprise in one of the men's voice as they mention just the number he wanted to hear. By the time they've finished speaking he's already on his way, guessing that 'down' is a good indication of which direction he needed to travel.


    He keeps his eyes open for an indication as to which direction the labs would lie and keeps his pace quick, but calm as if merely in a hurry to get to a class he might miss.

    Rauj keeps wandering around in search for anything that might point towards the labs. He winds around a few corners, walks down a few halls - is the place ever big - and eventually finds himself in a rather short hallway with some stairs leading down to the basement level and a double-door opposite of it with heavy metallic frames. He takes a moment to peek down the stairs. They seem to double back and lead further down. He then takes a look at the double doors. There are small windows on each door and he can just barely make out what's on the other side. Looks like some kind of storage hall or... an office? Perhaps a maintenance room, or a generator... it's really difficult to tell.. There are some boxes and cables everywhere. There is a messy desk full of scrap and lamps and papers and binders, and some kind of machine with a tarp over it. There is a man inside, fiddling around with the side of the machine. He leans back and wipes some sweat off his brow and turns towards the doors, getting ready to exit.

    "Whoops." Rauj's eyebrows raise slightly with surprise at the man's sudden interest in leaving. For now he hops down the first flight of stairs, landing lightly despite his size and continues down at a somewhat brisk pace. He glances further down the hall of the downstairs area to get a better look, making sure nothing was coming his way from that direction, then about faces when he thinks he should be out of the machinist's view, waiting for the man to leave. He wasn't about to continue on without having a peek at whatever the man was toiling over... "After all, a person's work is best enjoyed when its viewed, and who better to see it first than me?"

    Rauj muses with anticipation, keeping an eye out for the man's appearance and which direction he's headed, as well as any unwanted onlookers. As he waits he considers asking the man for directions, but decides its a bridge he'll cross only if necessary... That and he was having a bit too much fun exploring.

    When Rauj gets to the bottom of the first few stairs and takes a peek down the hallway he notices it is actually rather short. Almost directly inront of the end of the complete staircase is another similar set of doors, beyond which seems to be a more prestine hallway with various doors and big glass windows lined up. Above the door there is a sign "Laboratories B - 30-60".

    He makes a mental note and glances back up the stairs; Sure enough the doors open.
    As the man exits the room, he turns to close it manually, and waves his hand over the door. A small glowing sigil appears briefly on the middle of the two doors, and without looking around the man heads down the hallway to where rauj initially came from.

    Rauj grins after peeking down the next hallway, his heart aflutter at the thought of closing in on his current quarry, but quickly realigns his focus on to the task at hand.
    He waits a few seconds for the man to vacate the area before turning his attention to the door.
    He pauses before the door, remembering the sigil the man placed on the door before leaving, and reaches into one of the pouches on his belt. He pulls out a lock pick, but this one gleams with an eerie blue aura, its enchanted. "Its a shame, i didn't want to have to use these so soon, but whatever that dude placed on this lock needs to be disarmed first if i want to get in undetected."

    Now a magic lock or enchantment on an area is a bit different from an average lock, which is why it requires a special lock pick to deal with. Average lock picking requires the pushing of pins within the locking mechanism, not too hard once you get the gist of it, and almost all locks are a bit alike in that regard... Magic... is a bit more complicated. In order to even have an attempt at it you must either enchant a lock pick of your own or acquire one (though it doesn't need to be a lock pick, they just happen to be the easiest to work with besides ice picks). The spell necessary is as simple as 'magic sense' in order to allow you to see and therefore interact with whatever enchantment has been placed on the lock, after that its a matter of loosening the spell weave on the area its being hosted. A spell put on a lock feels almost like a concentrated mass when interacted with an enchanted pick, its a matter of loosening up that mass slowly and carefully, like a volatile knot; which is what makes it more complicated, if done badly, it could go very south, very fast. Anything from merely alerting the caster, to a magical backlash which would cause not only a lot of noise, but depending on the intricacy of the spell, varying physical harm to the one doing the picking. In reality no enchanted lock is impossible to undo, its just a matter or patience and time, the spell woven into the area being the determining factor as well as the lockpickee's own personal skill and experience.

    With these thoughts in mind, giving himself a bit of a refresher course since he hadn't done one in about 3 weeks, Rauj sets to work on the sigil, giving himself about 1 minute to get it done before moving on, pass or fail. He wouldn't like to get caught attempting this when his prize is right around the corner, after all.

    There is quite some tension as Rauj meddles with the magic lock. Almost akin to a musician playing in an orchestra... his tool straining under the pressure, skilled fingers swiftly dancing from here to there and back again with the skill of a trained perfectionist on his big night. Exhilarating and terrifying all at once, as the beautiful rhythmic movements creates the most gorgeous of sounds while the tiniest most insignificant of slip ups might cause the whole orchestra to fall into disarray and collapse.

    And just like that, the sigil comes to life.
    At first, one can never be too sure if success or failure. But sure enough and to all of Rauj's confidence the sigil shatters into tiny pieces and dissipates.
    The door is open.

    Two quick takes down the hall; no one is coming or leaving. He gently opens the door and slips inside, closing it quietly behind himself.

    The room seems a lot smaller on the inside than it did from the outside. There is a desk directly to Rauj's left with two drawers on each side of it and a bunch of paperwork. To his right are a few metal shelves with random tools, blueprints and boxes. And across from him the large box with the tarp covering most of it.

    Rauj looks around the inside of the room, keeping his movement swift but cautious. He checks quickly through the desk drawers, glancing at each of the papers to see if any of them are plans or notes of any importance... Though in all honestly the best thing he's hoping for is a map or floorplans of some sort.

    After a few moments of drawer diving, he places it all back and he looks to the shelves, glancing at the tools to see if there're any materials he could possibly use for later, taking a decent look at the blueprints for any devices that could be easily stowed away and pawned off for a decent price. After arranging those back in a relatively decent manner (possibly more neatly than prior), he heads towards the mystery box towards the center of the room.

    With a gleam in his eye and smirk on his face he pulls the tarp back and gazes upon the object of his current interest.

    As Rauj rummages through the room, he finds a few things of interest to him. For starters; two rectangular light-blue crystal gems, encased in some kind of light metal frame, as well as a blueprint to go with them. It's not too difficult to get a rough overview of what the blueprint describes the crystals are for. Some form of long range telepathic communication? The crystals themselves seem to be comprised of multiple modular parts that are then fused together into one rock within the metal frame, but, just on the fly he wouldn't know how they worked. There are a few notes regarding various studies; Some lab room numbers, some names, and a few projects. Most of them are generic material enhancing, but two in particular seem out of place: "2 - Synthetic spectroscopic samples, stem-cells, autopsy sample" as well as "52 - Cases of Amytial Zhynophlex , cases of variant 11 veneficus enhancer"

    Given his experience, Rauj can easily assume that these refer to tissue samples, perhaps even experimental, and drugs. Both of which sell well on the black market.

    Lastly he finds a small notebook with many pages ripped out of them. There are various numbers written down and sections of the campus, such as Hall A, Hall B, Labs B, Labs D, and so on, alongside a note that says "Don't forget to update the pass-codes for Labs B and D"


    Finally, the long awaited climax - the big box in the center of the room.

    With a gleam in his eye and smirk on his face he pulls the tarp back and gazes upon the object of his current interest.

    Well it sure is a box. It's completely comprised of different metals and alloys. There seems to be a terminal in the middle of the box, and an open panel on the side where the man from earlier was messing around. Looking behind it there seem to be large cables and a pipe running into the wall in the narrow space between the machine and the wall. The terminal seems to be flashing some numbers... coordinates? And when Rauj examines the open area on the side he realizes the man earlier had tampered with this machine. Some wires have been cut, and a device has been screwed in haphazardly on the side, connected to some of the other cables and wires.

    Info
    Rauj receives AQL#1502.
    Rauj receives AQL#1498.
    Rauj receives Pass-Codes notebook.
    Rauj receives AQL Design-Sheet.

    "The haul has been good so far..." Rauj thinks to himself as he peels back the tarp covering his final prize in this little size-quest. He tilts his head to the side while squinting his eyes in thought as he studies the bespeckled box. It was obvious that he would be unable to transport it in its current state and by the looks of it he assumed the terminal was holding a secret in the form of information, rather than a chest of some kind. He studies the numbers on the terminal for a moment, seeking any patterns in their appearance, intending to write them down on the notebook he recently acquired if he happens upon one. He then glances over the odd device attached to its side, studying it before tracking its wires to see if they're connected to anything within the room.

    Rauj studies the terminal for a good while. Different symbols slide across the embedded screen, at a pace a little too fast to accurately write down the different symbols. They seem to be part of various formulas which Rauj can only assume is displayed on screen for reference of whatever the machine is processing right not. He's seen a good number of constructs like these in different shapes and sizes, though, usually connected to a bigger machine to reproduce some kind of great magical effect with little effort. Regardless, he tries his best to write down as many symbols as he can remember, just in case it becomes relevant sometime down the line.

    He studies the foreign device and comes to the conclusion that it's hooked up to the machine itself. It, too, has a small display that seems to flash two types of equations, occasionally exchanging one symbol on the left with a symbol from the right equation. Again he doesn't seem to understand the language, but the device doesn't seem to be connected to anything else in the room. The machine however has thick cables and a pipe running between it and the wall into another room nearby.

    Unfortunately Rauj isn't fluent enough in the language to understand it. He flips through the passbook for anything on the topic, but then decides to move on deciding there's not much more to gain from this room. He keeps the run direction of the cables in mind for future reference in case finds his way to the nearby rooms. He paces the room one last time making sure everything is, for the most part, the same way he found them and then leaves, closing the door behind him and immediately making his way back downstairs. He stops at the landing once more before turning around to see if the man who originally occupied the room is on his way back. Ready to decide his next move from here... If the man was on his way back, he'd continue downstairs; If not, then what would be the harm in at least checking the adjacent room for a few clues as to the magical function the box was serving.

    There is no sight of the man from earlier. Though, Rauj sees two men turn the corner and start to descend the long hallway. There isn't really any way away or past them without ducking down into the labs, and he has a feeling that whoever they are there is a 50-50 chance they're either here for the room he was just in or to enter the labs.

    Rauj decides to descend down the stairs and see what the lab has to offer on his way to 52.

    He opens the double doors and heads inside the hallway. The artificial lighting is a little brighter than the natural lighting upstairs, and the clean laminate floor shines brightly with all kinds of reflections. The whole place smells a bit odd. Not unpleasant, but very artificial and laden with chemicals. He sees a number of doors, fairly far spaced between each other in just such a way that plenty of labs can fit within the space the hallway provides without being so small you can't get your lecture or research done.

    Rauj takes a peek into the first window, being discrete not to be seen by anyone. Who could potentially be inside. Nothing, however.
    The room is lit but no-one is inside. There are various solid square desks lined up inside and a few random tools you would expect from a lab. This specific one is likely designed for studying.
    He looks into the adjacent door and finds much of the same. About roughly 10 labs down they start to change, becoming a little wider and starting to showcase more tools and even some machines.

    While he is fairly knowledgeable, most of this stuff he doesn't seem to recognize, either that or it's equipment too big to reliably smuggle out of the campus. He finally arrives at a lab that has occupants inside; Lab 13. There are a handful of students, maybe 5 or 6 at most, leaning over a table that has a bright light shining down on it. On the other side of the table is an elderly woman who gestures down to whatever it is they are looking at.
    Rauj can't really make out what they're working on, but there sure are a lot of chemicals standing around all neatly bottled up in that room.

    The adjacent room, 14, also has some people in it. Two older looking men, maybe in their late fourties, sketching up some diagrams into the air with their fingers and arguing between one another. On their table there are various metal parts, and a mechanical arm, complete with each finger and muscle details, which continues to grasp the air.

    The next few rooms are empty, though, lab 21 catches his attention.
    The lights in the room are all turned off, save for a small contained blue sphere that seems to illuminate half of the room. The table is empty, though, there seems to be a liquid dripping off the edge closest to the door. Across the room are three large black metal boxes, one of which seems to have a dent in them. There is also a chair, with a woman slumped over in it. She is wearing a simple lab coat over-top of a school uniform, but seems to be sleeping. She is holding an AQL in her lap, but seems to be completely out of it.

    Rauj casually walks by each of the rooms with limited interest, pausing by Lab 13 for a cursory view of the class being taught before moving onto the next room. Lab 14’s mechanical appendage receives an quizzical look from him as he smirks to himself at the elderly’s expense and continues on his way… that is until he gets to lab 21. As he stops at the window to the room, the amused smirk drains from his face until nothing is left but a cold steely gaze.

    He walks into the room, carefully walking around the edge of the room as to avoid any possible residue left by the liquid dripping from the table, across to the three large boxes, interested to see if the dent came from within the boxes or is coming out from them. After a quick look at them he goes to check the woman in the room, hoping for a better turnout than his original thought.

    As Rauj circles the room he takes a look at the table. It's pretty messy, but he can't seem to make out what kind of liquid is smeared all over it.

    He examines the boxes. Two seem perfectly intact, with a very generic magic sigil flashing in-front of the two indicating that they are locked. The third seems to have a dent in it that bends the metal inward and upon closer inspection the box opens up like a closet. The inside is lined with padding and straps, almost like a coffin or something to transport bodies, and the entire interior seems to be singed by heat. There is no residue inside.

    Next Rauj carefully and cautiously examines the woman who is slumped over on her side in the chair, holding an AQL tightly in her hand on her lap. She is wearing a student uniform and a lab-coat over top of it. She has a pair of glasses in her coat's pocket, and medium length blond hair tied back into a ponytail. Her face seems to be bruised but by the incredibly subtle shoulder movements and her faint exhaling he recognizes that she is either asleep or passed out.

    It is at this moment he hears the main door outside swing open and a man outside explain;
    "A demon is a being that is not from this world. Mostly living in the depths of hell. Demons come in a number of form ranging from monster to human-like. A large present of demons are only interested in power and controlling the weak. But there are a few who have other goals. There are some people who are skilled enough to summon a demon. A very tricky and dangerous thing to do. Why do you ask?"

    Footsteps start descending down the hallway as another man answers his question;

    "Forgive me, I did not mean to offend you in any way, I'm from a simple land with simple values and just some of these people just don't sit right me. I also don't hate those with wealth just those that use it as a weapon or abuse it...
    I've fought monsters before but I've never seen ones like these demons...And what is Hell?"

    Rauj eyes the two remaining boxes with curiosity, in the low light he can likely see more than most, but not enough to tell exactly what once occupied the box previously. He sighs slightly figuring the only way he could actually get an inkling would be to break into one of the remaining two. Putting that aside for the moment he checks the woman slumped in the chair. Relieved to see she's still breathing he exhales a bit. She appears to be a student, but before he's able to check her personal belongs for some sort of ID he hears voices coming from down the hall...

    "Great, just what i need..." he thinks to himself scowling as he quickly considers his options. He can't stay. Not without putting out the light, and although his hearing was above average, he could assume they were pretty close. The sound would make too much noise, and just do exactly what he wouldn't want; draw attention. "Hmm..." There was another possibility... he realizes as he begins to actually tune into the conversation the two were having. From the context it was easy to tell that at least one of them was relatively new to the building/area in the same way Rauj is. If, by some sick stroke of luck, the other participant in the ongoing conversation was also merely one of the many guests touring the building, this could go EXTREMELY well in his favor.

    Now he was getting excited, he stands with a bit of a smirk, which he quickly catches as he collects himself for his soon to be oscar worthy performance. He exits the room, but stands in the doorway making sure to put a somewhat worried look on his face as the owners of the footsteps came into view; "Hey you two, i could use a hand here. Do either of you know first aid?" He says, eyebrow raised quizzically.

    The two men seem to be getting towards the end of their conversation as Rauj pops out the door right in-front of them. A good call, too, as it seems that they were heading to the same room as well.

    Neither of them look like they are actually part of the academy, but both of them look vaguely familiar to Rauj even if not necessarily the other way around.

    Reymondo stops opening the door and turns to look at the man Infront of him with an equally quizzical look. "Um...the very basic first aid. If it is an emergency you may want to look for someone who works or attends here." He looks at Dethrial, hoping that he doesn't know anything. Normally Rey would be willing to go and help the random stranger in need, but not now. Not while he is so close to getting the answers he needs. "How about you? Know any healing magic or first-aid?"

    Dethrial notices the man from before and readies himself for combat. What is he doing here and what did he done to Kaavi Treis? With a calm tone he answers Rey and looks at Rauj. "I know the basics of battlefield medicine and some healing skills, but none concerning magic. And why might you be here?" He then begins to slowly walk towards Rauj and the door to the lab, ready for any fast attacks or an attempt to run.

    As Rauj gets a better look at the pair  he realizes he had passed by them earlier soon after he first entered the building,which in turn has him a bit curious as to exactly what they're doing down here of all places... He supposes that the building was indeed 'open to the public' considering the lack of security... His thoughts wish to dirt towards the 'whys' but he is quickly snapped back into reality by the Alv towering towards him requesting he reveal exactly what he happens to be doing here. He pauses before answering his question, not in thought but to give the man the once over, his tone seemed to convey a veiled threat that translated easily as he noticed the man tense up.

    Rauj wasn't looking for a fight, and he'd never encountered an Alv in combat before; nor was he planning on taking one on here, it'd ruin his own investigation. He slowly lifts his arms palms facing towards the man and slowly backs away, "... I just got here, same as you. I was checking out the other labs here when i came across this one. The lighting was odd and i thought i could see someone sprawled out at the desk inside so i decided to check it out... Place was like this when i got here." He backs out of the man's way as he steps into the room, merely gesturing towards the woman behind the desk. "... Luckily she's still breathing, but she's a bit beaten up... bruises on her face." He gestures towards the other end of the room, I dunno what was going on in here, but it seems something broke out... I was hoping to get an idea of what kinda situation i... and to a further extent, we may have walked into."

    Rauj then turns towards the more lavishly dressed man, regarding him with a more stern tone, his passiveness shifting to a more serious edge as he slowly lowers his hands."...I heard you speaking of demons as you came down the hall... do any the materials in this room hint towards their presence? I'm not all too familiar with them, but i'm definitely not interested in running into one here."

    Rey takes a peek into the room. He was on his way here to begin with, so his best guess would be that the woman slumped in the chair clutching her AQL must be none other than Kaavi Treis. Which makes him wonder where this professor she supposedly works with is at, as there are no traces of him at all.

    To rey, and only him, there is a sort of hostile feeling in the room. Traces of aggression... blood-lust... and hunger. He can feel his blood calling out to it's peers. There was definitely a demon about, though the scent is so faint and so vague he can neither make out what it was or how long ago it left, if at all.

    Reymondo walks over to Kaavi and lets out a very irritated sigh. He had hoped to get his answer right away but now he not only has to wait for her to get better, but look for blood hungry demon. Rey looks over at Dethrial. "Can you look her over? I need her alive and well if I am going to talk to her. Also, leave our random stranger be. I have a feeling that we are going to need him." He then looks over at the stranger. "Unfortunately you are correct. There was a demon here...I have no idea where it could of gone but I can tell you this, its very angry and wants to cause pain and harm. I would rather not get the entire academy freaked out by telling people...Can you fight? I guess I could tell you our names before drafting you."

    Rey clears is throat. "My name is Reymondo." He rolls his R and you could swear you hear the quick strummings on an acoustic guitar in the distance when he says his name. "My friend over there is Dethrail. I was looking for her..." he gestures to the unconscious Kaavi. "And that is when we found you. Now what is your name...and can you fight?"

    Dethrial enters the room and shutters as a chill goes down his spine, his eyes are then drawn to the dark corners of the room where anything could be hiding in those deep shadows. The pale blue light made everything appear as if it was the last light of a sickly moon, as he stepped towards the woman. Dethrial then quickly checks her vitals and determines that she took quite a beating and slowly picks her up in his arms and covers her with his shield. Before the other man could answer Rey's question Detheial interrupts.

    Dethrial lowers his voice in to one that sounds like cold steel and speaks quickly and calmly. "Rey, I believe something is still here, it has set a trap, and we just fell into it. Light up the room and ready yourself,you too stranger. I'll keep the woman safe and if need be I'll jump in too."

    Rauj scowl deepens as he catches the rather flamboyant man say 'I have a feeling we're going to need him'. He could already tell what he was about to say next, although the man mentioning the impression he got from what Rauj could only guess he was sensing, was odd; "if this demon was so pissed... why was this woman still alive?" His glance quickly shifts towards the unconscious woman as the Alv begins to pass him to enter the room, then back to the gratuitously dressed man as he prepares to identify himself clearing his throat to draw Rauj's attention.

    ...

    Rauj lets a beat pass, not even remotely amused with his play on words, coughing slightly and looking away as this 'Reymondo' continues on to introduce his companion, Dethrial. He glances at him and nods in acknowledgement as the man covers the woman with his shield.

    Dethrial warns them of the oncoming danger, which causes Rauj to instantly bounce outside into the hallway in a ready stance, one that indicated that he fights with a more martial style. He hadn't heard anything other than the woman's breathing, the sound of the dim lighting and the strange liquid dripping off of the table towards the center of the room; and much less had he seen anything in the darkness though his night-vision is better than most; realistically though, he had never attempted to confront a demon, and wasn't about to limit his ability to maneuver. He speaks to Reymondo from his new placement, his voice low and almost a growl, "How does he know this? Does he have some kind of connection to demons?" Rauj shifts his view left and right to make sure the halls are clear in case this gets out of hand or he needs to escape, then focuses some of his senses to the dark of the room, waiting for... gods knows what.

    The three get ready, preparing themselves for the potential attacker to strike at any moment. Or perhaps even two attackers. In fact, if the layout of the room is to be believed there may even be three!

    ...There is a great tension in the room, the only sounds the slow and steady dripping of the unknown liquid... the soft pulsating humming of the light orb... the rapidly increasing heartbeat of all three men.
    The atmosphere is thick, mind numbing, and the smell of death looms in the air...

    A sudden sound sends jolts through everyone's body. The door of the hallway opens and a man steps inside.

    It was nothing, after-all.

    The man descends down the hall, reading through some papers on a clipboard. He's wearing a rather fancy suit- likely a professor- and turns to lab 2. He pulls out a magicked key and waves it in-front of the door, causing it to unlock.
