❯ ❯ After much hesitation, your friends agree to try the new spell. You flip to the page dogeared in the grimoire and start reading off a list of ingredients necessary for the potion that accompanies the spell. Your friends give you a funny look. You cannot get everything from within your house. For this, you should have been prepared. Now one of you has to go around gathering the necessary ingredients while another draws the summoning ring, and the other two set up the altar.
❯ ❯ Who gathers the supplies?
A] Tales or
❯ ❯ Who draws the ring? [[ Must be different than above ]]
❯ ❯ And that leaves setting up the altar to Elegant and you.
❯ ❯ ❯ ✖ ❮ ❮ ❮
❯ ❯ The person in charge of gathering supplies must go on a scavenger hunt, visiting these six members:
@DigitalAtlas, @kitty_mckechnie, @Androssi, @Ienzo, @temples, and @Arcade Rabbit.
❯ ❯ Five of them will have the ingredients you need. You must come back with the ingredients they give you and decide with everyone else which one does not belong.

❯ ❯ @. : tale_wind has been charged with the task to gather all of the necessary potion ingredients. It will be some time before he returns. Everyone wishes him the best of luck.

>>femur of a holy man
[ U P D A T E 3 : okay hold up now i've got six ingredients because i also got cat's blood what do i do ]
In all seriousness I'm not even sure..
Hyuge cleared it up on my post on her profile; there are supposed to be six ingredients, but evidently, only five are actually used in the potion.
❯ ❯ After a great deal of time, Tales comes walking through the door. There is a small plastic tote under one arm that he sets down on the coffee table before handing Roxam her keys. "Well there it is. Only took forever," he tells his group of friends. There's dirt caked under his fingernails and a peculiar dark red stain on his sleeve. "Are you sure that's the stuff you needed?"
❯ ❯ He looks at you uncertainly as your index finger runs down the worn page. "Yup. This is everything. Although, it's a bit hard to read. I think one of the ingredients is used for something other than the potion. I can't quite make out what though. I've been staring at it for awhile." You turn the grimoire to face the others and tap on the page. "See here? Only five of the ingredients are listed in the potion, but it's so faded and smudged I can't tell what. The other is for the summoning."
❯ ❯ You look at them nervously, trying to decide which doesn't belong.
❯ ❯ Inventory:
❯ Cat's Blood
❯ Purified Water
❯ Femur of a Holy Man
Femur doesn't belong
I think the [ Cat's Blood ] doesn't belong
Everything else is pretty tame (or flowers). Blood in that mix seems more than a little out of place...
but there's blood and water, both of which are (shockingly) liquids, and lavender, aconite and sage, all of which are plants. the femur is out of place.
Maybe, but a femur doesn't seem too useful for summoning a spirit. Blood would make more sense for a spirit to me.
idk Wormtail summoned The Dark Lord with his fathers bone, sooooooooooo...
❯ ❯ After a good amount of debating over the ingredients, you go with the most logical option. The Femur seems as if it is the least likely to be a part of the potion, so Roxam carefully crushes up the herbs and mixes them with the purified water and cat's blood. While she is doing that, you crush the femur and sprinkle it within circle. Roxam pours the potion into a couple of small glass cups and gives you a sidelong glance. You dust your hands off and move to the grimoire once more.
❯ ❯ You and your friends are unaware of the fact that you messed up the potion and spell. Instead of stirring the contents of the potion with the femur, and burning the sage to cleanse the room, you have swapped the roles of the two ingredients. You won't know the outcome of such a careless mistake until long after you attempt to summon death.
❯ ❯ Your eyes are glossy as you look at each of your friends. This is the part you've been keeping to yourself. "We need two people to drink the potion." You chew on your lower lip, wondering who, if anyone, will volunteer.
i volunteer tales and roxam to drink the potion. i'l watch from a distance.
