We're Materia-adjacent, we have nice flexible magic. I'm entirely curious.

Permalink

My magic is purely destructive. Fire, death, annihilation, that sort of thing. Good for curing infections and I can de-oath people and I killed our Melkor and Sauron with it. Doing it requires being connected to a disappearance point, which destroys matter and also space around it. The disappearance points got faster unexpectedly and my planet has a few puncture holes now, which is why as a last-ditch I tried a spell to slightly destroy the barriers between worlds on the hypothesis there might be such a thing. Landed in my Arda.

Wow.  - wait, are you a Bell.

Permalink

A what?

Permalink

- Ardas almost always have an interdimensional visitor drop on them and it is almost always a Bell. Mine was a Bell's daughter. And they are characteristically good at magic and like saving the world and so on. The peal would probably have noticed...

I talked to a Common You for a while and was not asked if I was a Bell, what is a Bell?

Permalink

Set of alts. Like Maitimos except with more variety in origin stories. And - less variety in inclination towards unhealthy coping mechanisms, though the standard-timeline ones do commit kind of a lot of murder. I don't get the notes, I don't know all the Bell identifying traits - Cam is a Bell, Loki is a Bell, Tireh is a Bell but we're sort of playing I-don't-know-if-you-know-if-I-know...

I have not met those people. Do you mean standard timeline Maitimos or are you saying my alts commit a lot of murder -

Permalink

I was referring to standard timeline Maitimos. Cam and Loki have both committed a lot of very defensible murder, I think the other ones mostly refrain.

Permalink

How do I tell if I am this thing and what happens if I am?

Permalink

Then you get all the goodies, Bells really like other Bells. I suppose you could go read up on them and if you find yourself going 'yep, that's right' stop by again and ask someone to check?

Permalink

I wasn't given any reading materials.

Permalink

I will ask my Findekáno to bring us some peal history for public consumption.

Permalink

They said the other Findekános carried him off, did he come back?

Permalink

No, one of the standard Maitimos committed suicide and his Findekáno, who the Valar had straightened, decided to come be advisor/liaison. He's the reason we finally have healers.

Permalink

Oh good for him.

Permalink

He's been so helpful.

Permalink

There's a pop. "Hi!"

Permalink

"Hi! This is my new alt and Cor who might be a Bell and wants to read about them."

Permalink

"In a few cases the public summaries do not include relevant reasoning but here you go."

Permalink

"Thank you." He starts in.

This is a pamphlet from Cube, where Isabella Marie Swan (Butterfly) is loosely running a planet having freed it of evil aliens with the help of a guerrilla team of good aliens, made fast friends with the local Maitimo and when he got arrested kept the local Curufinwë company in his efforts to end death, which he has now done. This is from Edda, where Loki touched the Tesseract, got sorcery, landed on her Arda, dueled Sauron, taught Elves modern technology, tried and failed to kill Melkor with that, and developed interdimensional transit so she could go get the Tesseract again and rip him to shreds. This is from Elendil, in Warp, where Boots landed on an Arda, hacked her magic system to fix up the Arda, offended the Valar in the doing, and eventually fled for an Earth where T'Mir was a political prisoner, having saved several billion lives by smuggling their worlds the warp equations that would qualify them for galactic membership. This is Gem, empress of Mîr having saved her world and its adjacent Arda...

"I see a theme, although it is odd that they're mostly girls."

"Cam's war does not have a friendly accompanying pamphlet. Kib's is in there somewhere."

He finds Kib's.
