Those who refuse change, refuse improvement, refuse to learn are doomed to mediocrity.

Could nature allow those beings exist?

This is your first trial, citizens, your test to see if you are worthy. I would be watching and seeing if my efforts for protecting you from your weakness was successful.

current mood: indifferent

Darkness has swallowed light but is it by superstition? No! It was the next step to perfection.

Vertere is change, change is part of science, science is common sense at its best, therefore what happens next is a logical level to reach. That the Fair Lord changed is sensible, a product of our common sense and collective mindset, our change is the final stage. You are the fruits of science that is the change in the most magnificent state.

I changed to illustrate this. Magician, terrorist, alchemist, genius, doctor, savior, conservative, liberal, good, evil, neutral, scientist…

I, Isaak Fernand von Kämpfer, who was the Avatar of Enlightenment is no more. He was just a residual existence shaped to fulfil a role that has shifted. I am the Avatar of Science and you, dear citizens of the South, are my tools and subjects to perfect at Adam Beliyya'al's image.

Hoh~ Lord Raito has left us recently but it seems that he was unable to depart without a grand farewell exhibition. Good-bye, you will be missed.

The monsters are not the only creatures that lurk in the shadows, one should be careful if they exit their houses. My pretty babies are, too, quite restless and this is a chance they could eat without being bothered.

Should any be lost and need assistance, I am willing to offer my services. In the name of the former Avatars, I announce that Vertere in a state of alert until the Fair Lord is contacted and this situation is solved.

Lord Xuchilbara, are you the responsible for this attack?

Private to AvatarsCollapse )

((OOC: Strikeouts deleted. Isaak’s monsters pets are going to snack on npcs, they are blend with shadows, so difficult to spot. ;) He's going to start to be more villainous as soon as AB enters to the picture)).

‘Tis are the seasons of gifting love and tokens of affection. Aren’t the air crisper and the sky brighter with the glamour of the Aurora Borealis? As fair the landscape that graces Vertere is, it pales to the beauty of our Fair Lord and his beloved Children.

“The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.”


Ah~I have always loved Blake’s talent with words. It flows so honest and raw.

At the blasphemous risk of interrupting the peace in the holy nights with the earthly activities, I must know who amongst you are still looking forward be part of the systems: Education, Culture, Health Care and Justice.

Aptitude test calls.

4:32 pm - XIV (Backdated during Trial after the first half)
The sad duty of politics is to establish justice in a sinful world.
(Jimmy Carter).


Hn~ The trial is, insofar, very insightful for the tender politics of Vertere. I invite all citizens to behold it and extract their own conclusions. There is a lesson to learn from that event, one that would teach us greatly in our daily routine in this world.

Do it for enlightening and justice. What is justice but, as Lord Solzhenitsyn stated, a conscience, "not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity." How are our consciences? Are they identical? Certainly not. Is justice possible if that is the case?

No, never in a perfect sense to satisfy us all. That is clear. If that happened, the worlds wouldn't have different justice systems with their own set of laws. The communities within those worlds wouldn't also have distinctions.

Sometimes we feel outraged by the results. Others, we are pleased by them. But, is that justice or our individual sense of it?

The only way to reach a perfect justice is through enlightenment and become better ourselves. Remember why we are here for.

I await eagerly to know what Lord Raito has kept from my immediate knowlogde.

((OOC: Strikeouts deleted ;P Isaak probably delivered a bottle of wine to Raito/Ky and Reeve/Vincent after the first half as some neutral offering)).

Citizens of Vertere, greetings to you all, this is the Avatar of Enlightenment, Isaak, your humble servant with an announcement of vital importance.

This city and your fellows need your cooperation. We all are part of the same… voyage into the endless possibilities of perfection, however to reach it we need a certain amount of order and a clear division of tasks.

Several among of you have taken jobs already, settling your individual endeavors that I praise as a step forward to accept your new roles. However, many remain unemployed. Talent wasted when is so much to improve and progress.

That is why the Avatars and the Holy Adam Kadmon with your best interests in mind have set the police, an internal security force that will assure the protection of the people. But there are handful public services that still lack a proper organization. Namely Justice, Health Care, Education and Culture.

Justice shall be the second system we will set.

Those citizens with an inclination and a clean record to participate, please, I invite you to respond this entry. You will work in cooperation with the police force (who has briefly taken over the Justice role until the Courts are formed) and directly under Avatar Raito’s jurisdiction. The exams and inscriptions will be open shortly if there is enough displayed interest in this subject.

Private to CaterinaCollapse )

((OOC: Oh, other Avatars, what else could be added in the “public” service issue that will fall under their supervision? Robo-Ky’s got the Police Force, Isaak’s the E&C thing -unless some other wants Culture. Uh Darcia?-, Raito’s the Justice, uhm Dr. Jackal the Health Care- I think-)).

Congratulations for the oncoming wedding, Lord Raito and Lady Misa. May your union be joyous and teach a moral lesson about devotion and perseverance in your shared love.

To the Police Force, it was my pleasure to look your tests. Wonderful job.

Hn~ My guests have been awfully quiet.

Private to the Avatars. UnhackableCollapse )


((OOC: Why yes, Isaak is obviously going to broadcast that in public if only to see Raito's reaction)).

10:37 pm - Calling to those who praise justice
Without delay, here I bring forth the simple examination. The replies shall be only visible to the Avatars in order to examinate the candidates.

I insist you to think every topic before you type down the answer. Take the time you wish.

Filtered to those who wish to become part of the police force, the Avatars & Adam KadmonCollapse )

((OOC: There is trickery within the exam. Good luck :D)).

I’ve listened at the murmur of the unbelievers:

“There is no such a thing as perfection.”


What a lamentable education some of you posses. Truly dreadful. But no matter, no matter, I am here to educate you better.

Tell me, dear citizens, if there wasn’t such a thing as hope to improve, why bother to exist? To cry? To learn? To love? To hate? To live or die? There wouldn’t be a point. This city, your technology, your music, your clothes, everything society built is a reflection of the quest for perfection.

It’s not an easy task, no, but it isn’t impossible either. The “why bother” questioning is absolutely forbidden for has its roots in sloth - in the spiritual, physical and mental apathy that stalls us and lulls us in a comforting crib of mediocrity the Holy Adam Kadmon won’t tolerate.

Neither will I. You have been warned.

I fear that my brilliant colleague, Doctor Crane, was sadly misunderstood by many. No matter how his unorthodox actions are or how eccentric his mannerisms come out, Doctor Crane’s role as the Avatar of Phobia is one of the noblest.

Listen to me. Allow my humble words to enlighten you all.

The pain of that girl is regrettable but those fears she held within weren’t caused by the good Doctor, he only exposed them. Those were remnants she hid inside from her previous life in her world. She suffered that much, deep within her being and lived in denial (as we all do with our own fears). To be able to step into a new life, we must confront our phobias until they frighten us no more, because those nightmares come from a life that cannot be lived in Vertere.

What haunted her doesn’t exist here and, when she realizes that, it would be a step forward to Adam Kadmon’s Paradise (where there would be absolutely no fears at all).

((OOC: Isaak facepalmed at the ruckus from the incident, sat down in front of his computer and wondered: “What could I say that sounded profound enough to buy to fix this mess? Hn~” :p Actually, he made a reasonable point but eh, still evil. Except for Vincent, they all are I guess XD)).

current mood: thoughtful

3:50 am - VII: In the darkness of ignorance...
... all you have to do is question.

Where?

When?

Who?

What?

For how long?

And, most importantly, how and why this is done.

Don't be discouraged to ask the Avatars when doubts strike your troubled minds. However, remember always that some of the answers will come with time and only after your own effort in seeking them.

In the end, the light of knowledge will bathe you and bring you to a better state. Allow me to help you with your queries, dear lords and ladies. It is my duty as Avatar of Enlightenment.

Hn~ Any questions?

((OOC: Isaak's trying to fix the paranoia the other Avatars triggered. He wants to see how far Adam Kadmon reaches in his plan of Paradise, he hungers for that wisdom and ultimate perfection, to know. Even if he fails, Isaak will gain in knowing what he did wrong. So he's not amused at the powergames of other Avatars, but it's too polite/tolerant to address it. He doesn't care cruelty or revenge or mass destruction -he does that often after all- but if that compromises what he wants, he does mind ;P )).

12:44 am - VI: Avatar of Enlightenment
“Of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”


An old rule already discarded for the sake of a New Order. What was once Original Sin is now Sin no longer, but Virtue.

Because of your ancestors, each of you was born with this gift - the gift to learn. This is what the Seraphita would cultivate amongst his chosen people, so that they may reach their full potential.

Life is a learning experience - one is taught of crafts and knowledge and of how that will, eventually, lead to complete enlightenment. This is the key of perfection. Do not fall into sloth and an idleness of the mind, soul and body, lest you should wish to be punished - though, to be sure, there is as much a lesson in pain as in everything.

I am here to guide and instruct you onto light with exceptional patience. Yet in order to reach that state, you must also know darkness and the secrets of shadows. Soon, fellow citizens, I shall provide you with my teachings - and those that become unnecessary will be eventually purged by another Avatar.

Open your eyes and learn all in Vertere, learn all of the gifts that Adam Kadmon has to offer.

As the Serpent once did to Eve, I urge you to eat the fruits of knowledge:

“You will not die, you will be just like God.”


Learn, first and foremost, that should you sin, you will be cast out of Paradise.

((OOC: And you thought highschool was over, uhmm? Less holidays and more homework to reach Paradise! Don’t be misled by his manners and speech, he’s very evil, but also very, very patient to insubordination. Once crossed, though, he’s not polite at all aka will improve you in other ways *coughs*experiments*coughs* Which will be another way for you to learn... what your characters could do with certain "improvements" Heheh. But basically, first Isaak will be a permissive teacher, obviously if his teachings get the pupils in trouble with other Avatars, he'll wash his hands)).

What an enlightening unsettling day this one turned out to be. With that magnificent creation (my apologies for calling you creature, Fair Lord) and now these amusing toys dangerous cyborgs wrecking chaos. I could capture several unscathed to my own research.

Hn~ Caterina, please be kind to suggest Ichimoku and his young Mistress to stay inside until is safe. I will venture out for a moment.

Ohoh~What a fascinating turn of events. I only lament I was amongst that minority unaffected by this brand of magic, I dare to say, very powerful. It is just an educated guess for I am not a connoisseur in this subject.

This place (I find myself reluctant to call this location a mere city, the size is continental with ease) is utterly fascinating. There is a blend of Lost Technology and constructions that belong to different periods of Earth, gathered together. A true pity only two of us were transported inside and we have no contact with the Tower.

The public data I could collect was the following:

- Name: Vertere.
- Dimensions: Unknown.
- Year of Foundation: Unknown (as it is the use of the Calendar. It does resemble to the system employed before the Armageddon).
- Population: Unknown. Some amongst them claim to have died prior. A good portion of them are Methuselah who don’t appear to mind to be addressed as “vampires.”
- Location: After common declarations, I conclude is a dimension-in-between worlds.
- Government: There is a popular rumor about an angelic presence but I could not corroborate the validity of that. For the time being, I will venture a guess this is an Anarchy.
- Laws and Legislations: Still a mystery.
- Unclassified observations: “Events,” the name to identify very unusual occurrences that happen to the population. The extreme excitement I had noted upon my arrival was the product of one of them.

How about your research, Eisendame? Have you finished your report?

Hn~ My, my, my. Lady Fortune has snared me into a very odd situation just when the new order was about to begin.

I was in my studio just about moment ago, enjoying the endless moonlight in sweet solitude. Marionettenspieler, tell me, is this another of your pranks?

This fountain reminds me to the fallen Roma but more magnificent even.

Hoh~ Are the citizens always so... enthusiastic or is this a special occasion?
