(2206) Sanctuary

    The Circle of Creation is the gathering hub for all Pentacle mages in the Sacramento Concilium, 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.

    It is a time for simply for mingling among the Awakened. The common area is large and open, but over the course of the month it's inevitable that people may bump into each other. The official concerns of the Consilium are put on hold as a more lighthearted experience is shared among this community of the Wise. Ultimately, this is the opportunity to let the proverbial hair down. How much so is up to them.

    This is the opening post for Sanctuary. Please read this for information on Sanctuary, Consilium, and the difference the two. Come here to be recognized!

    Also a reminder, Sanctuary threads are not official Consilium threads. Those under an incarceration sentence may not attend a Sanctuary thread.

    Sancturary is not a single event, or formal Consilium. It's a compression of time to represent the comings, goings, and intersections of Awakened throughout the month at the Cirlce.

    Corn, dressed in somber colors and not in a particularly good mood went to the Circle. He took a seat at the benches, sipping iced coffee from a Styrofoam cup.

    As Belle enters the Circle it's almost like visiting a friend's house after she'd been gone for a while. She'd never been one to avoid facing tough decisions, but given the time she'd spent away from this place...

    But that was the past; this is the now. The now where anything an happen because magic and willpower and pixie dust and other such positive things Belle was trying to cram into her head to prevent her mercurial Warlock mind from changing. It's in this state of mind that she finds Corn. For a moment it looks as if she hesitates approaching the Moros, but that moment passes. She sits at the same bench just far enough away that she isn't encroaching on Corn's space. She's dressed in a muted yellow top and jeans, nursing an Italian ice soda from a favorite place downtown. "Hey." She motions her cup towards Corn. "Good to see you, Corn." ​She smiles, hoping to extend an olive branch to her Mysterium leader and to, she hoped, a good friend.

    Corn, unaware that he's being offered an olive branch or what he should be given an olive branch for, looks at the Neokoros and smiles, his mood improving and bad thoughts banished. Or at least sent back.
    "Welcome Belle ! You are back in town, I see. I am glad to see you. Look, I am a bit late in calling the Mysterium meeting but it will happen soon. How have you been? For me it was ... not very good but I am trying to look forward."

    After Belle replies, Corn continues,
    "So, Neokore, I was considering that this consilium needs a Herald. Someone we can have announcing upcoming events to the magi of the consilium and I think you would be good for this job. Furthermore, since the consilium here is as it is, I think a couple more minor responsibilities like being aware of which areas of influence or neighborhoods are taken or perhaps representing us to other consilia or other supernatural creatures should also be part of the job.
    I have not discussed this with the council and I plan to discuss it first within the Order. But I do think that you would be good for the job.
    But before I bring the idea to anyone, I would like to know whether you would be interested.

    Phoenyx walked quietly into the Concillium room where she heard the voices. She could hear Corn's voice long before she realised Belle was in there as well.

    The Arrow was wearing a simple black top to go with her loose combat pants - always ready to fight.

    "Good afternoon,"
    she said, offering a small smile. "I am glad to catch you both here. Have you managed to make any progress with scrying the potential banisher?" she asked Belle. "If we need to track them down sooner would be better than later."

    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.

    New month. Another meeting.

    Not an official one, but as Councilor, it kinda meant she had to attend. Whatever.

    It might be warming up, but that didn’t stop her from wearing a pair of leather pants and a loose flowing shirt.

    Walking in, energy drink in hand, she quickly observes who’s there, nods, and finds herself a place to sit. Kind of off to the side, but close enough to be social.

    A wave to Corn and a warm smile to Belle, “Hey you! We’ve missed you, hope things are well.” It was true, she had been looking forward to hanging out with Belle more.

    Seeing Phoenyx, a wave was offered.

    The winds of chance blow, and the Enchanter follows. Puck had other things he had planned to do but he felt the unmistakable pull of Fate as he happened to pass the circle on his way somewhere else.

    The Enchanter entered in black boots, jeans, and a black t shirt. He scanned the assembled mages. His surprise at seeing Phoenyx outside an official meeting was obvious by his raised eyebrows. Eyebrows which quickly furrowed in concern when he sees Corn talking again. It's not that Puck wanted to dislike the Moros, it's that the guy just never took a hint. He was unrelentingly self absorbed and didn't care about the social norms he stomped on along the way of his delusional pontifications. Well, okay, also the eugenics thing. Maybe Puck did want to dislike the Moros a little bit.

    "Wassup?" Puck asked, smiling as he wandered over to Aurora. They weren't exactly friends, but they did have common interests in the spirit arcanum. Also never hurts to try and mend bridges, especially when you need to work together to lead the concilium.

    Corn first spots Phoenyx and offers her a smile. "Greetings councilor. Thank you for your concern. For my part I have not had news of the fellow. Not seen him since that event." He looks at Belle to see if she has anything to add.
    Aurora gets a respectful nod of the head and a smile "Hello, Dadouche Aurora. Always a pleasure to see you. Any news?"
    While Corn was aware that he was not Puck 's favorite mage, months have passed since their disagreement and he wasn't one for grudges. "Greetings, Councilor Puck." he said towards the acanthus councilor although Puck seemed to ignore him and the others except for Aurora. At least with Puck you knew where you stand even if it was a bit rude to give them all the cold shoulder.

    Turning back to Belle he said to the Mastigos, "We can discuss that suggestion at a more private setting, Neokore. How are your studies going? In case you are not aware, Aurora is now a 2nd degree Master, so we have one of the most powerful mages of California in this consilium!" he said with a smile, quite proud for his friend.

    Now this was unexpected. Puck approaching her. Did he want something…or was there something she said he wanted to give her a hard time about? Only one way to find out.

    “Hey.” Ball was in his court for this.

    Looking toward Corn, “On what? I have no news on anything, been quiet actually.” Was she supposed to be doing something? Oh shit, she was, wasn’t she?! Fuck.

    Then came the whole thing with her having Mastered Spirit. A subtitle shake of her head, “Again, not a huge thing.” She should have kept the news to herself.

    The libertine strolled through the doors to the sanctuary and snuffed the cigarette he was smoking between his fingers, stuffing the but of the cigarette into the pocket of his well tailored suit pants. He'd gotten his house in order, somewhat literally, and now was more than a little curious as to the goings-on of the city as he dropped into a seat to people watch and listen, tossing a nod to Puck as he entered.
