Muffle Project [Story Hook, Small Project for anyone interested]



OOC NOTES:
This is open to all who wish to participate and is meant to be a small side-project to create IC enchanted talismans for guild members who want to harness a "Muffle" spell so that their clanking metal armor, metal parts on leather armor, or other similar 'noise-making' costume/jewelry is silenced for a time.

Goal:  Do stuff together.  Get to know others working on the project as well as for your own character development and RP fun.

Limitations once the talismans are made and the project is completed:

  • Limitations should be that the item(s) can only be used once a day (or twice if we get enough IC power harnessed) and each one is attuned to it's intended owner so that they won't be too over-powered
  • If you are using it with other players around they should have a chance to "Resist" the power of the spell - example, let them decide if their character notices no noise or if they still hear the metal noises of the armor as usual (can also use dice rolls or Rollcall or other similar means too, whatever is comfortable and/or agreed upon)
  • We can also have a chance for failure if you want to roll dice to see if it works each time you use it

A Letter In The Guild Hall

((A Letter to Invicta Mercenary Company in Angelique's flowing script, left in the guild hall next to an inkwell and a rather ridiculously fluffy and colorful feathered quill pen))

Dear Invicta,

I have been theorizing on a small project which some of you might find of interest.

The illusion spell which muffles the sounds of clanking armor and quiets the sound of footfalls is an exceptionally useful yet perhaps underestimated talent which may have a delightfully broad scope of use if applied to an object with a number of magical charges stored within it’s confines.

I have been pondering and researching various techniques as to how to go about capturing the essence of magicka for the illusion in such a way that would infuse a personal talisman with ‘Muffle’.  Ideally, I am looking for a highly skilled illusionist to aid in my research.  In addition, some of the components for such an undertaking will require us to delve into dangerous territory and we will need our warriors and heavy hitters to accompany us for retrieval of these materials.

The talisman would have to be something significant to the one who wishes it enchanted and it would have to be attuned to them, no other person would be able to use the object.  This is a limitation but I think it may be a necessary one.  If we put our heads together to make such a device, I think it is safer if it’s attached to only one person at a time so as not to be abused by others who may stumble upon it and use it to their detriment or the detriment of others.  That said, each of us can have our own personal totem or item.  Once the enchantment is perfected, anyone who wishes their own talisman can be issued one.

Simply put, I wish to try to make a charm that can be easily carried and that can be activated on armor or a weapon when we need stealth and quiet to better carry out our contracts and missions.  Please leave correspondence or send a messenger if this is something you'd like to help with - I look forward to hearing from any interested parties.

Sincerely,
Angelique
