The Forsaken Sovereign

"The veil of sanity is a lie we tell ourselves when we gaze at the night sky, hoping, in a stifled corner of our mind, that the stars aren't gazing back." — A nameless, insignificant, yet ambitious young man once attempted to rescue his family from poverty. But as he found hope, he also stumbled upon despair. After losing everything to the darkness of death, including himself, he woke up in another world, stuck in the body of an eleven-year-old boy with a peculiar appearance. He soon discovered that he was a Celestial Offering—a holy sacrifice, carefully groomed by the Temple of Stars to be given to the Gods Beyond. His fate had already been sealed, for his blood would spill under the seven-pointed star and consecrate the birth of a new era for his nation. Armed with nothing but his wit and the trail of good fortune, he would attempt to challenge this destiny, braving the countless hurdles that lay in waiting and the unfathomable horrors they harbored. In a realm of magecraft, occult rituals, madness, and prowling Eidolons, he could only count on himself to survive, as the threat of insanity loomed over everyone equally, and nothing could slow its ineluctable embrace. — Discord: Naphulae#1813

A Smiling Night

The crackle of a bonfire rang amidst the ominous chirping of insects, forming a discordant melody in a lone section of the forest.

Meilyr looked up as the strands of daylight slowly ebbed, leaving the night's watch to the pitch-black moon and its serene glimmer. 

His Mana danced in and out of a misshapen dome he had created, encircling the position of his shoddy group—Lady Tsuji and Ando on one side and Sept, Vivi, and Emil on the other. Gal-Enshu gloomily took care of the fire, his head slumped. 

"This is amazing," Sept said, joining his corner. "I've never seen such manner of Mana control. This isn't quite a Theurgic Field nor even barrier magecraft, but it's impressive nonetheless."

Meilyr listlessly nodded. "I figured leaving us wide open could be trouble. I can detect anything that touches these ethereal coils, so it should work effectively as an alarm."
