    The Circle of Creation is the gathering hub for all Pentacle mages in the Sacramento Consilium, with chapter houses for all five Orders inside.


    Located east of Sacramento and far outside the prying eyes of the inner city, the Circle of Creation awaits the mages of Sacramento. Despite being a replica of the Westminster Abbey, the sleepers who come by never seem to notice it. The wards built into the structure have made sure of this. To all but the Pentacle the Circle is essentially invisible, ensuring the safety of those who enter and engage with one another. Whether it had always been here for the Awakened was hard to say now, but it was the site that the Awakened gather to mingle and discuss official matters.

    Today is informal: no official business.

    The choir where the Awakened gather is empty and the nave is silent.

    Please read this for information on Consilium, Sanctuary, and the differences. Come here to be Recognized!

    As a reminder, Consilium is the official meeting but business should not be handled until after the first seven days. This is to give everyone a chance to enter the thread without missing anything. After seven days the thread is closed to new arrivals and the official business may commence.

    The sweet, fragrant smells of roses mixed with lilacs emanate from her as she casts magic. The scent intensifies, bordering on intoxicating, when Life magic is cast. When Aurora casts Vulgar magic, the scent takes a nasty turn, to the putrid, nauseating odor of a rotting corpse. The stronger the magic, the more those around want to retch at the smell.

    Not an Official meeting, but she was there anyways. Not that anything got done last month, big surprise there. Seemed they were destined to go around and around with no solutions. Whatever.

    The color of the day was black. From her fitted leather pants, to her suit coat and heels. She just wasn’t feeling colorful for whatever the reason.

    Walking in, she forgoes the chairs to lean against the wall, coffee in her hands.

    What excitement would today bring?

    Kaze arrives and enters, looking around. "Hey." He says, smiling when he sees Aurora. "I guess I got here in time to get a good seat, huh?" He says.

    Honestly, he's really just looking forward to the first one of these things where he isn't brought up as some kind of agenda item, at least not as a bad example to be avoided. Can't let that get to him though, and keep him from showing up and maybe missing out on a chance to help with something.

    Phoenyx slips in, giving the present mages a smile. She looks better - recovered - than last month, and is wearing a simple black top and workout pants. Her usual knives are on her belt.

    "Hey. How are you both?"

    Engaging with others? Apparently the Arrow was feeling social today.

    Seemed the time for impressions by dressing up was over. He wore a pair of khaki cargo shorts, birkenstocks, and a blue button-up that was only half-way buttoned it was hot out and he was doing what he could to keep the heat at bay. As always, his messenger bag lay across his shoulder and at his back. Unlike usual though he came bearing a series of two Tupperware containers and set them at the bottom.


    “Afternoon everyone, you all well? I brought fresh bread and cupcakes if anyone’s interested. No frosting on the cupcake, I used a honey drizzle to sweeten the nut ones the chocolate ones are just chocolate. ” Smile bright and just absolutely brimming with energy. He opened the containers revealing two loaves of bread, one was a whole wheat loaf and the other was a solid, if dense, irish soda bread. The cupcakes were split into two kinds, a nice honey-nut cupcake and a chocolate one but no frosting on it.

    He grabbed one of the honey-nut cupcakes and sat down at the seat next to the one he’d been usually residing in. “Told Camper I’d bring in some fresh baked goods, took a few hours but I think it all came out well.”

    A nod and smile to Kaze, “Hi.” Then a shrug, “Seems that way.”

    While the Arrow might be feeling social, the Shaman didn’t appear to be feeling the same way. She gives a smile and little wave to Phoenyx, “Hey.” And sips her coffee, seemingly content to lean against the wall and drink coffee.

    An eyebrow raises as Guru declares he baked. And told…Camper?...he would? Camper?

    A shake of her head, “No thanks.”

    Nimbus:
    A flowering of wildflowers accompanied by their scent and the sounds of a calm wind dancing over the sea. The more vulgar the spells, the meaner the magic the stronger the winds, the flowers blooming only to quickly decay and spread the scent of death with them.
    Appearance

    Standing 152.4cm tall, her hair color changing on a regular basis, usually braided but not always.

    Her body seemingly quite petite and small but upon closer inspection so is it unexpectedly sturdy, her left arm well trained with more defining muscles than her right arm.

    Rarely seen without an armguard and archer glove on her left hand.

    Each and every movement always precise, rarely if ever wasting any more effort than needed to achieve her desired result.
    Equipment

    Zippo lighter
    Arm guard and archer glove.
    Waterskin 1L
    Wooden coin worn around her neck, magical tool.

    Walking over from the arrows wing, preparing her senses to be able to see the magic around then sigh she had needed to do this a lot more lately than she was used to but with so many awakened all around it had a much bigger function and served a completely different need than it had before.

    Getting in, her knives strapped to her legs as she looks over the ones in attendance before getting over to the cupcakes, taking a honey nut one.
    "Thanks Guru, I will make sure to enjoy it."

    Taking small nibbles whilst getting into the room, not really having any other goal than to get to know the people and get closer to them for now just trying to see how the group dynamics takes hold.

    Kaze grins at Phoenyx, looking really happy to see her or at her interacting with him in a positive way anyway. Or just...happy.


    "Hey. I'm good. Good to see you, Phoenyx." Kaze says sincerely.


    Kaze smiles politely, and gets up to grab a chocolate muffin from Guru's stash. "Nice!" He says, offering a fist bump. He doesn't immediately take a bite as he goes and sits back down, possibly keeping it in reserve.


    He glances over at Aurora, just maybe a little concerned. Aurora seems down, or maybe just had a late night. He considers asking, but then everyone else starts arriving, and he decides that respecting her privacy is probably what she'd appreciate most anyway. He smiles and nods, shrugging just a little in reply and perhaps a little commiseration.


    "Hey, Skye." Kaze says, smiling and getting up to offer a hug in greeting when Skye comes in. He moves over just to offer but not insist if she's not feeling huggy today. Either way, he sits back down afterwards.

    The Silver Ladder arrived, looking sharp and fabulous. She had to uphold the style standards of her Order, after all.

    "Good day, everyone. I hope you're all doing well," she smiled to those already present. "If anyone needs to speak with me, well, here I am."

    As informal as this meeting was, Naga decided not to stand on too much ceremony. She simply grabbed a chair and made herself at home.

    Vulgar: Color drains from the immediate area and depth perception becomes temporarily skewed, everything seeming to draw in uncomfortably close, making rooms smaller and all but distant objects seem in reach.
    Vice: Color drains from Avis and her facial features seem indistinct and grainy, as though her identity is growing less defined.
    Virtue: Colors appear more vibrant and everything seems to become grander in scale.

    Once upon a time, the Circle of Creation had been the only place in the world where she'd felt safe, though that was the thing about places: one's attachment was truly what was important, not where they sat in the world. She'd used to love to sit and stare up into the vaulted arches when no one else was there and just drink in the silence. She'd even used to love the feeling that came with cleaning floors, or the walls, of wiping away all of the dirt and seeing it shine. It had made her feel proud at a time when there wasn't much to be proud of, though now that was only a distant memory.

    After all, the Circle had changed.

    Or, rather, her perception of it had.

    At one point in time, it was her safe haven. And then it had a Clock ticking down to the end of the world. And then she'd heard the rumors of what lay beneath it, buried under the foundations. Maybe those had just been stories, but it didn't matter. It was just another thing. Just another lens that had skewed the building she'd used to love, though in truth, the biggest factor of all was simply the amount of unpleasant experiences she'd had within the building even without anything important actually going on. So many arguments, so much heated blood...

    The Existence Might Be War, but War was conflict, conflict was contrast, and she still had her preferences.

    Regardless, she'd chosen to commit herself to walking the path of improvement, and for a Warlock that meant walking through Hell.

    That meant other People.

    So she arrived, looking remarkably more colorful than last time, and after scanning the few people that had arrived, she made up her mind and strode right up to Naga .

    "Hey, you're resonate with Pandemonium, yeah? Tell me, what half do you favor. The mental nonsense, or the spatial nonsense?"
    "Aw-Vee". Pres 2 (Moody). Mastigos, Adamantine Arrow. Trace of a Cajun accent.
    Defense: 8. 3 cloaked spells. Phone (pot 6), Belt (pot 5), Self (pot 2 +3) Spell tolerance: 1/3, Accumulation: 3/7
