How Not to Use Magic

How Not to Use Magic

Patrick had made 3 mistakes that damned night. Well... way more then 3, but 3 major ones.

The first was showing up in the first place, Patrick hadn't belonged there, not in the slightest. He knew it, everyone knew it.

The other two mistakes, however, were much more complicated. They had much bigger consequences, and led to even more big mistakes.

Gold, Gods, And Glory

Gold, Gods, And Glory

From an early age, Alric learned one fundamental truth of the world; life is inherently unfair. While there have been countless "heroes" who have slain the countless "dark lords" over the ages, the way of the world has, ultimately, never changed. Whether they be at peace or war, the vast majority of people are forced to struggle for scraps, while the mighty fill their bellies with more than they can chew. This unfairness is perpetuated by the equally adored and abhorred "Rankings" system. One's "rank" is determined by a number of factors, including wealth, battle prowess, magical prowess, overall level, the type of industry that one works, number of enemies slain, and even one's affiliation with the gods. The higher that one ranks, the more priviliges and bonuses one obtains from the Celestial Maintenance Device or CMD. Naturally, everyone wants to improve their ranking, but there is only so much room at the top of a pyramid, and somebody has to come in last place. Unfortunately for Alric, he is that somebody. Born to a wealthy and respected family, Alric had much pressure on him to continue the family's legacy of smithing. There was a slight issue with this when it became known that Alric was born without the affinity for the skill. As a matter of fact, Alric was born without affinity for any skill. Needless to say, this made Alric's father extremely infuriated and led to him being excommunicated from the family, and landed him a job in beggary, as he was exceptionally bad at literally everything. This might have been the death of Alric if had it not been for the one thing that can change one's fate- divine intervention. That, and a hell of a lot of luck.

Dear Xin,

Nyaa~~

I hope you are doing fine.

I think it's your first day on earth. I wish you success in your revenge. And hope this time the world won't get destroyed like the last time.

Since there is a charge on the number of characters I am using right now, I am keeping it short and simple.

The last time the magical world got destroyed, we tried to reverse time and send your soul there. But because of some unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to do so.

Since trillions of souls were on the line, we merged your earth and the magic world into one.

We have successfully planted the characters of the magic world on your earth, and for magic, it will be added to your world within the span of a month.

Hope you enjoy your stay there.

Nyaa~~

The Dagasi Saga

The Dagasi Saga

Order is the ruling concept of the Andalan faith and the nations that bow before it. Anything done in the name of maintaining order is considered justified, no matter how perverse or cruel. Anything powerful, unpredictable, or free is regulated or destroyed.

It is this thinking from which the Dagasi Order, a system of legal assassination was born.

Designed to keep the grudges of the petty and powerful from spilling into open warfare and stealing the lives of the innocent and weak, the Order is a mysterious but widely accepted part of life in the upper echelons of Andalan society. Andalan nobles scoff at the barbarians to the East who call the Dagasi Order and its practices savage. They tut at the unruly and unregulated magics which lie beyond the invisible line that divides the continent between Andalan and other. They worship the Gods of Order and Chaos, but only one affects their judgement.

Georgiana served the Dagasi Order despite its cruelty. She excelled despite her slight stature and sex. She killed for her freedom and killed some more for her fortune. It was all supposed to end in peace and serenity, but unfortunately for Georgiana she fell in love with an ambitious man and he loves her just as much.

As a nobleman's son, Florin was just eight the first time he witnessed a successful assassination.

By that time had seen two failed, non-lethal attempts already. He averted his eyes as the attendants cleaned up the blood and the guardsmen pretended to search. Later all he could remember feeling was irritation. The man killed was the host of the night's party and his death meant Florin had sat through an afternoon of stuffy formalities for nothing. There would be no four-course dessert banquet and no chance for a few hours of precious, unsupervised play with his peers. A man had just died, but Florin didn't think about it. He didn't think about who sent the assassin, or how they'd breached such a well-protected fortress. The Dagasi were just a part of life and he never spared a moment to wonder where they came from.

But he would.
