Lia Xin throws a party on Theros. She invites Antine, Penelophine, Zhiran and Vasilias, Lord of Ariva, but Zhiran can’t stand Vasilias!


There might be some history there...

Quote:
A baby Kithkin is left on Penelophine's doorstep! Now she will have to have to seek the help of Syl of the Dual-Walkers in raising it!


Seek help? Or confront about her weird habit of leaving orphans on people's doorsteps as a weird "prank"? This feels like something the pre-mending Rulus could do when they got bored.

Quote:
Jinsen has a meeting with A gang of merfolk on Siraus, after a duel between Tey'von and Antine left them stranded there.


Somehow two of the least confrontational characters in the M:EM got into a duel with each other, and then one of them summoned a gang of merfolk and just left them there? This seems fishy.

Quote:
Illarion Vale attempts to explain how to get to Regatha to a Timmerian fiend, but it goes poorly.

"...by the way, what were you planning to do once you get there?"

Hehe. "Fishy."

Nicely done.

Re: Maral

In fairness, those are a loooooong twenty paces

Re: Alessa

In her, very promiscuous, defense, Raef is probably the beefiest beefcake in my roster.

Re: Zhiran

I'm not sure what kind of history Vasilias and Zhiran might have. Of course we know his history with the Cabal, but for all the hubris, I think Vasilias might have exercised better caution than other tyrants and despots.
Actually, it makes me consider what ALL the oldwalkers would have to say about Zhiran.

Raiker Venn has decided to write a new poem about Nasperge. Poor Nasperge.

This feels like Act 2 of the story I just recently wrote.

Quote:
Rishima, Queen of the Black Sands throws a party on Janhapurh. She invites Zhiran, Lourima Viiran, Maral, Celestial Wright and Antine, but then Rishima never shows up and stiffs them with the bill!

I love the thought that Rishima would be this incredibly petty rather than simply trying to kill them. Also, poor Antine.

Quote:
After finding a rare map, Morgezka Shanak decides to search for a mysterious treasure on Iun Ilana. For the sake of safety, Morgezka decides to travel alone. After a long and eventful adventure, she finally reaches a desert oasis. After hours of searching, she finds her treasure! Triumphantly, Morgezka raises a mystical sword over her head!

She was dangerous when she was a dragon. But now, she's a dragon...WITH A SWORD!

Quote:
Narissa Enshar starts a band with Ilyta and Annalee V'ray. Their first gig is tonight, on Solphos, but pop idol Raiker Venn schemes to turn the battle of the bands... into a literal battle!!..in bed.

:takei:

Quote:
Syl of the Dual-Walkers throws a party on Siraus. She invites Morgan of Voor, Alar, Lia Xin and Gruff, but nobody shows up!

Chardis called from the patio. "I have the extra large barbeque fired up, dear sister. Where are the 'guests?'"
Syl called back. "Nobody has arrived, dear brother. I fear we may have developed a reputation."

Quote:
Nasperge does an Aubedore reading for Chardis of the Dual-Walkers in the "Crossroads" pattern.

For the corners, he draws the Angel, the Tavern (inverted), the Orphan (inverted), and the Arrow.

For the spokes, he draws the Ghost (inverted), the Snake (inverted), the Gravestone, and the Library (inverted).

At the Crossroads, he lays the Demon vertically as the destination, under the fate card of the Seeker, which is horizontal.

Chardis of the Dual-Walkers accuses him of stacking the deck.

Nasperge: "So it seems that the evil perpetrated on this "Seeker," whoever he may be, will be visited back upon his evil-doers."
Chardis: "Funny, Magician. Funny."

Quote:
Yeong Eode begins traveling with Antine. But when Antine takes the artifact known as An Æther Vent from Lia Xin, Yeong Eode is forced to planeswalk to Kinshala, home of Tember City.

Untying these plot knots seems like quite the challenge.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Ygraine of Segovia wants to cheat off of Renn Winmoore’s test in Raleris, the Lorekeeper’s class. Hilariously, it was just an aptitude test!

Hehe.

Rimarra arrives on Zhiran's Academy, in the possession of the artifact known as Winter's Heart. Rimarra threatens to unleash the artifact's power upon the world!

Zhiran: "Thank you, young lady. You have invented air conditioning! This is fantastic!"
Rimarra: "Well, that's not quite what I was going for..."

Quote:
While investigating mysterious ruins, Elphimas was attacked by a Werewolf. Now, Elphimas is seeking revenge.

Daneera: "Hey, Kerik didn't mean it! You leave him alone!"

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Illarion Vale wants to cheat off of Alessa Rehn’s test in Raiker Venn’s class. Alessa allows it, but they are caught by Mr. Venn!

Alessa: "I really should have seen this coming."

Quote:
Urassaya Vath is deceived by Kimberley Talon, Tey'von, and Hanara.

Why do I feel like this all revolves around different definitions of an angel?

Quote:
Penelophine begins traveling with Kalit Mudroha. Can they stick together despite their differences?

No, they cannot.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Denner Fabellian develops a huge crush on Cara Holis. He tries to flirt with her, but massively embarrasses himself. Cara loses a bet with Ethal and has to take Denner on a date. But cruelly, Cara no-shows, breaking Denner’s heart.

Well, that's just not nice.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Aria and Lumina Revelaris get into a fight in the back lot. After the fight, Aria and Lumina have a new-found respect for one another.

I sort of feel like these are two of the least likely people to get into a fight.

Quote:
Raiker Venn always dreamed of going to Arbagoth--But not like this! *sob* NOT LIKE THIS!

"I had such grand plans for this plane! Ugh, I hate it when Raven beats me to a plane."

Quote:
Mari Gwynn attempts to explain the history of Jakkard to Aloise Hartley, but she realizes Aloise couldn't care less!

Aloise: "What? Yes I do! And I think it's super cute that you studied up on Jakkard history all because of Antine."
Mari: "That has nothing to do with it! Anyway, the area Antine was born is started off as..."

Arbagoth is under attack! Sundar Elarion must gather allies such as The Duchess, Penelophine the Siren, and Kahr-ret-Taris before it's too late, but Sundar is hampered when he receives the artifact known as The Inferno Amulet from Antine.

Apart from The Duchess and the Inferno Amulet, this sounds strikingly familiar.

Quote:
Jakkard is under attack! Aloise Hartley must gather allies such as Kimberley Talon before it's too late, but Aloise is hampered when she gets drawn into complex political intrigue by Jackie DeCoeur.

I feel like this requires at least three different story arcs to have gone drastically differently.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Orida Vise picks a fight with Lia Xin behind the bleachers. Like most fights, it solves nothing.

Orida: "She was giving me the **** silent treatment!"
Lia Xin: "..."
Orida: "See? She's **** doing it again!"

Quote:
The multiverse has it out for Ethal, as she is trampled while attending a sporting event. Poor Ethal now has to find Rishima, Queen of the Black Sands to appeal to her good nature.

HA! Good luck! Give a fish out of water to a cat and see what happens.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Ygraine of Segovia wants to cheat off of Kimberley Talon’s test in Lady Nasina’s class. Kimberley is appalled that she would stoop to cheating!

I can't help but feel like "stoop" was chosen as a slight here...

Quote:
Lukas Harran planeswalks to Aliavelli. There, he converses with Sharaka, Raleris, the Lorekeeper, and Astria.

Something about Sharaka and Astria being in the same room at the same time is just utterly fascinating to me.

Quote:
Aloise Hartley begins searching for the Sword that Cuts Eternity.

:takei:

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Rimarra tricks Mattias the Tinkerer into going with her to the dance. Unfortunately, they turn out to be a really awkward pairing!

"They're Princess and the Brain. They're Princess and the Brain. One is a genius, the other is vain. To prove their awkward fate, they went out on a date, it's Princess, it's Princess and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain."

Quote:
Tryst has a secret admirer! After receiving several gifts, Tryst discovers the secret admirer is Sharaka! Tryst is ecstatic!

Aww... though probably HS is the only place where Sharaka would go for a SECRET admirer thing :D

Morgan of Voor is forced to do battle with Dorn.

Interesting matchup. The lack of Larasa here is troubling.

Quote:
After an unfortunate incident, Elphimas is suffering from mana backlash. Now, Elphimas has to travel to Janhapurh in search of Aamir in the desperate hope that he can help.

This seems incredibly plausible, actually.

Quote:
Sorinne Datharius has gone missing, and now Aria goes in search of her. The search takes Aria from Bolas's Meditation Plane to Dark Rabiah and finally to Ikass, where she is attacked by a Dragon and abandons the search.

Mari: "So, how was your trip?"
Aria: "Same as all my other trips, Mari. It sucked."

Quote:
A thousand years ago, the Dual-Walkers, Syl and Chardis, host the Amphiseum Games, and watch a planeswalker battle a venomous Elephant Samurai.

There is no reason - and no excuse - that we do not have a venomous Elephant Samurai in the M:EM yet. I mean, we do have two other Samurai, but there is always room for one more, particularly when it is an Elephant, and when it is venomous.

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Raef wants to cheat off of Hanara’s test in The Eightfold Lotus’s class. Hanara is conflicted, but ultimately says no.

Probably the right call, but I would expect Raef and Hanara to be reversed here.

Quote:
During a volcanic eruption, Antine saves Zhiran's life. Now, the two team up.

Zhiran: "I am still not sure how you managed to save me, young one."
Antine: ~whimpers~ "Me, neither."

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Lumina Revelaris wants to cheat off of Ygraine of Segovia’s test in Kirsh of the Flats’s class. Ygraine is appalled that she would stoop to cheating!

I picture this as Lumina writing an undercover exposé on cheating in High School. I now really want somebody to write that story for the HS thread...

Quote:
In the M:EM High School, Rimarra picks a fight with Donagut in the back lot. Fortunately, Aloise manages to convince everyone to calm down.

Tough fight. Donny hits much, much harder, but Rimarra has the staying power...

Quote:
While drinking at the Flatulent Turtle tavern on Innistrad, Raleris, the Lorekeeper was attacked by a Sheep Cleric. Now, Raleris is too weak to ‘walk.

Just take this all in, folks...
