(OOC: Well, I havent posted a new topic in a while, and most of the ones Im in right now are ending so heres something new that I hope you all will enjoy.)

Darkness was standing in his room in the Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas wondering what his master was thinking. Raistlin hated company, and the thought of other mages in the tower was appalling. Since Raistlin reopened the tower only a select few had entered, and now that number will more than double due to Raistlins odd request. About a week ago Darkness was commisioned to search out the greatest of mages from all of Krynn and to invite them to the tower. Raistlins motives were unknown, even to his most promising apprentice, but Darkness did as he was told and invited several mages who seemed to be the most powerful on Krynn. As much as he detested to see others in the tower, he reveled at the opportunity to show the worlds greatest sorcerers how weak they truely are in comparison to Raistlin and himself.

Darkness had been training under Raistlins supervision for over ten years now, in secret of course. Only Dalamar knew of his existance, and he didnt know very much about Darkness. The mage with the eyes of fire, that glowed dark red at all times, and hair of pure platinum like the scales of Paladine. Darkness was an enigma to all, just as Raistlin was. He grew to love Raistlin as a father since he was the only one to ever care about him. Over the years Darkness had learned to understand his master, and Raistlin slowly began to open up to him personally and in the form of his most powerful spells. But now everything will change because of this invitation. Why has he done this?You cannot run from the darkness, when it comes to you, it will consume you.

Mirror stood outside of the tower of high sorcery in Palanthas, her silver robes that used to be white fluttering about her as she stood, contmplating. The fear that eminated from the Shoikan Grove was threatening to overwhelm her, but she had to get accustomed to it, she needed to know what was going on here!
She had recieved a letter a few days agao, inviting her to the Tower at Palathas, but the invitation did not say why she was invited, or by whom. Her curiosity had got the best of her, and she had to find out who wanted her here. She stood outside the door, waiting for whoever was inside to show themselves and give her safe passage through the Grove.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

Kalia ran to catch up to her friend. "Mirror wait!" she called, her own silver robes fluttering about in the wind. Kalia's silver hair tangled around her face, as she tried to push it aside in vain. Her gold eyes where wide as she stared at the tower that her Uncle had taken over.... The invitation sent to her shocked her. Fear made her tremble...fear of a man, long since rummered to be dead.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Mirror turned towards her friend and looked at her, pulling the silver robes closer around her to try and block out the fierce chill that seemed to eminate from whitin the tower.
"Hello, Kalia. You got the same invitation I see. Do you know what this is about?"Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

The anticapation boiled up in Simon. He had waited for this day for a very long time. To finaly gain entry to the place that Raistlin Majere studied his arcane arts. His uncle and master, Dalamar the dark, had recieved a invitation from the master of the tower. But being to embeded into his studies he had sent his nephew and imprentice instead. As he walked up the trail towards the tower he noticed two women standing in the middle of the trail talking. Simon hung back not wanting to disturbe them. He waited in silence for the master of the tower to allow them in.

Darkness could sense the presence of three of the mages he had invited, their power levels were indeed high but no where near where they needed to be. He closed his eyes and concentrated on a spell. A moment later he was in front of the two women who gazed at him uncomfortably.

"Greetings, I am Darkness, the current apprentice of Raistlin Majere. I am sure you do not know why you have been summoned, but that mystery will unfold soon enough. Simon, you can come out and join us now." With that said Simon slowly approached the group. "My master has deemed that you should all pass through the forest to the tower, as a test of your determination lets call it. Others may be joining us if they are brave enough. So please, meet me at the tower and we shall talk some more and maybe the master will be gracious enough to enlighten us on the purpose of this meeting." With that Darkness disappeared as quickly as he appeared leaving the others to the task ahead of them.

Back in the tower Darkness found Raistlin in the main laboratory. "Master, why are you doing this, they are not ready?" he asked in an unsure voice.

"Do not worry, all will be revealed soon enough, until then return to your studies, I have everything under control." Raistlin then left the laboratory leaving Darkness alone to his thoughts.You cannot run from the darkness, when it comes to you, it will consume you.

Kalia glanced at Mirror her gold eyes unsure, then she took in all that the Black robe had said. "Raistlin!!!" she murmered.... "How can it be??" she whispered...

"I want to know just what is going on here...I have to know...I am going." she said and stepped within the Shoiken Grove.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

" So he still lives. This is better then i thought. I will meet the mighty Raistlin."
He turned towards the woman walking towords the forrest.
" Hey wait for me."

Mirror looked around her. She was now alone. She didn't like that! "Hey Kalia, wait up!!!!" she yelled, running after the two other mages as fast as possible.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Darkness walked out of the Tower, seeing another Black Robe walk up the the tower's black gates. The sorcerer said nothing, but waved his hand at the gates, destroying them. Raistlin's Apprentice, also known as Veresk Dragonsbane, the Dark One, had entered came to the Tower.
Darkness saw the dark elf and knew immediately that Veresk was extremely powerful, but still nowhere near as powerful as Raistlin. Veresk walked into the Tower and said to Raistilin. "Hello, shalafi."
Raistlin did not respond to his apprentice.
Once all the other magic-users were there, Raistlin announced to them: "You will all battle. Whoever wins shall be my only apprentice."
Of course, Veresk Dragonsbane lived, for he was not to be in the fight. He had not yet taken the Test. Raistlin knew of Dalamar's treachery, but still wanted him to live. He used his powerful magic to secretly kill the other magic-users, leaving only Veresk Dragonsbane, Darkness, and Dalamar to live.

(OOC: To all those seriously wanting to play in this RPG adventure I apoligize for the last persons entry. For some unknown reason he seems to want to take control of my characters and run this topic. Please disregard his entry and lets continue with the adventure shall we.)

Darkness watched from the tower as the three entered the grove. "I hope they can make it, this should be a fun test. I havent gotten to control the forest in a while, this should be a good test for my skills as well." Darkness then focused all of his concentration on the forest, creating winding paths, making the trees come alive, producing spirits from the ground to stop their progress. "They will all make it, but in what condition is up to them."You cannot run from the darkness, when it comes to you, it will consume you.

The light did not penatrate the leaves on the trees. It was dark and hard to see. The elf In the silver robes came after the Simon and the other mage. They walked slowly at first.
" I've heard horror stories about this place from my uncle. If he were here we would already be in the tower. Do either of you know what this is about."

Darkness was concentrating on manipulating the forest to his every command. The three adventurers were doing well, at least for now. But he could not let them get their hopes up, that would lead to them feeling this trip was a waste of their skills, and that would be a pity. He drew forth a earth elemental to attack their party. The three gasped in horror as they realized the rock wall they ran into was really alive. "That should provide me with some entertainment."You cannot run from the darkness, when it comes to you, it will consume you.

Kalia shook her head to Simon's question and then turned in surprise at the Earth elemental. "Woah!!" she cried, and backed away, as her mind slipped into high gear, running possibilities, and weaknesses through her head.

"Water, and ice...weakens earth!" she cried, and set on casting her first spell which was nothing more than her true form's breath weapon. A Frost/Fire, that froze, then exploded what it would touch...the frost would at least slow the elemental down.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Mirror noticed the earth elemental at the same moment her friend had. She began to chant, and drew arcane symbols in the air with her finger tips. She shouted the last word and at the same moment pushed her hands forward, letting loose a powerful lightning surge that intermingled with Kalia's frost/fire. Mirror looked stright ahead, willing the combined spells to d their job and destroy the elemental. There was a bright flash of light on impact that blinded the watcher. When the companions were able to focus again, they saw that the elemental was no longer there..........Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

Simon was surprised by the attack and for some reason was not able to respond. It must be the wonder of being in this magnificent forrest. But he was saved by the two mages that were in his company.
" good job, you are very quick. I apllaud you on your excelance."

Just as the blinding flash of spells dissipated the companions were already celebrating their victory. "They are pretty good." Darkness mused. I guess I will let them pass, but when they reach the tower their real challenge will face them. I hope Raistlin has a good reason for summoning them here.You cannot run from the darkness, when it comes to you, it will consume you.

"I can't belive I'm late!" Jarlass cried as he struggled into his boot, while running to the tower at the same time. He was so excited when he received the invitation, he had gotten almost no sleep. When he woke up, he had realized that he might be too late. "Finally.." He sighed when he reached the tower. Dimly seeing the battle inside the grove, he called out "Uh, hello? Need any help?""All I hear is disgrace, erase them all and reclaim my place."
