Well, I hope they turn out well for you. SPARKLES!)) _"Well, things went south fast when Shurima's leaders and warriors went power-crazy. Good to know there is a force keeping things in check so I never have to play messenger between here and Targon. Can you image me heralding tidings of death and undeath and cosmic order to and fro?"_ She paused for a moment, considering something, and then began giggling at the idea before voicing it. _"Bilgewater would be a mess every year before the Mists swept over them."_ Said idea was her alerting the populace of the Mists' approach in, quite possibly, a variety of ways ranging from tidal waves of sparkles and magic to a fog of crackling and cackling sparkles like the night sky, and most likely a number of things in between one could only wonder about. _"It would be fun though! Oh! Maybe I could get Aurelion to help me! But only if he's a good boy and doesn't try to trick them into believing that he put the stars in the sky."_ Zoe said this with a more stern demeanor than in the past; the topic of her favorite space dragon being an important one to the aspect.

Good luck to ya!)) Zoe's attention wavered for a few seconds when he began speaking of his ideology regarding death and undeath. She had heard this before, back when they first began hanging out and she took him through those handful of other dimensions, so she watched the skeletons at work. When he finished, a question came to her in regards to his believes. _"What about people that come here to die? If they don't want to die, but they come back to life anyway, then what? Or is that why some are mindless?"_ People came for power, as he said, or to fight the undead of the Shadow Isles or try to cleanse or treat it, but what about the people that just died here on purpose or accident. She felt that some fishermen likely ended up here due to the ocean currents, others possibly on the way to the islands only to wash up ashore. Some came for power, knowledge, or looking for something, and others came to fight. So... she could not help but wonder what happened to the unwilling and how the mindless came up.

: It's the End of the World as We Know It! Let's Play Tag! (Ask Zoe)
((ARGH! I've been busy! So very busy! And so stressed too! Really, really stressed! I am back now! Hopefully until at least February or March when I do my taxes, but I don't know! Aaaaargh! Maybe I should just sleep and not worry about this stuff until it comes out... but still set aside funding incase I need to do damage control!)) _"This is a 'bump'. Not like the cars, although those are really fun. Can you image that as a game mode!? Everyone moving around in this cute little cars, ramming each other until they take too much damage and get destroyed. And then you have to go all the way back to base to get a new car and start the game over again."_ Zoe stops to consider what would be the competitive aspect of this game mode if it were a thing. _"Not based on kills because that would defeat the perhaps of the fun aspect, but maybe damage dealt? Abilities still work fine, maybe tweaked a bit, and it would be like that ARAM thing too."_ She considers mechanics now. _"The cars would get faster as you moved without hitting something or turning, and they would have these long corner and strafing turn motions... Hitting terrain would slow you down, but you can also go backwards at a reduced speed acceleration and maximum speed. Now I'm wondering about people like Malphite, Thresh, Lissandra, and Kalista doing this. Some of them can't fit, others are ghosts, and still more probably can't hit the brakes or gas pedals."_ She ponders something. _"Can the Void monster things even enter? They don't have hands... right? Just claws, blades, tentacles, and... what are Kog'Maw's called?_" She resumes pondering. _"Where did this conversation begin again? Oh yeah, bumping this thread so people know I'm still here. Anyway, give Cyber Pop some thanks people! She's the computer wizard out of the me's. Bye-bye for now."_ Zoe vanishes through a green and yellow spotted portal for a few seconds, and then returns, shaking uncontrollably. _"There's an old man in that world that does nothing but burps, swears, and drinks beer all day. I don't want to talk about it anymore. I'm going to find a rock and stay under it for a few days now."_

Things are finally over and I can get to this again. My older brother had a wedding, family came over to visit for that and Thanksgiving, I've been sick with a cold and stress, and it's been raining like crazy lately! Finally, it's all over and I can RP and reply! YAY!)) _"Nah. I'm a tad low on the spell mojo powers. I can still feel the weave of magic and touch, but being limited like this is really not something I've known before. Is this how every spell caster feels? -giggles- No wonder people want to be ghosts, liches, or immortal animal hybrids."_ Another thought came to her, but this one made her shrink back in mock fear. _"And cold-hearted popsicle people! Without legs!!!"_ She faked being scared for a few seconds, and then returned for her cheerful disposition. _"Wait a minute. Are you the lord of this land? I mean, you own it by power and everything, but you have subjects and servants that aren't brain-dead zombies or animated skeletons taken from graves?"_ This was news to Zoe if it was true. Even with her deity-level senses, she always thought the Shadow Isles were home to the dead and undead with the occasional random living person of who knows what demon or nightmare. The Mists did make the entire area foggy to her and others, prompting them to consciously search it if they had need to, which was nonexistent given the geographic distance between the Isles and Mount Targon, but the possibly of a village, or even a small city, of living people surprised her. This coming from a girl that loved nothing more than traveling through dimensions to cause or seek chaos and trouble.

Thankfully, we finally have a new guy to take some of the workload off of the rest of us.)) _"Yep, but it's not like something this world's not encountered before in the past. I don't know if you were around when the Void first appeared in Runeterra, I'm kind of surprised I was there actually. I think the rest of the aspects called me back there for some reason."_ Shurima had its share of problems internally, from the ascendant rituals to their relationships with the Void to their god-warriors threatening Targon. In truth, Zoe's actions, while childish and mostly just her being bored, left both favorable and unfavorable changes on the world for both mortals, aspects, and those in between. _"So, what's up first? Do we cut up the croc'o'lisk? Find more of those parasite snails or eyeball berries? Chopping wood or moving ovens and cutting boards?"_ She asked as she moved around, making such gestures with little things she found around the area, but leaving the easily breakable or very large items alone.

Not risky, just hard to get her out of. She's a real perfectionist when it comes to making sure foods are being cooked."_ Zoe informed, recalling her past experiences with the little monster of unknown limits. While it was true Zoe would have difficulty facing Tasha in combat, assuming that even came up, and impossible on worlds the eldritch creature had dominated for her master, the opposite worked too. Worlds in which she only found or were suffering from hunger problems weakened Tasha by her being there, reducing her own abilities and making it easier to banish or kill. However, killing her would only be a temporary fix. The power of an eldritch god meant that it would revive its servants with a thought, and Tasha was very important to hers. _"Actually, we could probably send her on her way in the oven if we leave it on. After she bites off my shackles, we can wait until she's in one, and then I'll open a portal out of her vault and into some random dimension I've not been to in at least two hundred years. She'll find her way back to somewhere, and she won't even be mad."_ The aspect informed with a smile on her face as she walked backwards. And then a thought came to her and she stopped to think before adding another bit of information. _"You may want to undo and remake your vault though. She may be able to find her way back to that specific one."_ She added with a nervous chuckle. A portal was a portal, door or magic. If Tasha found her way back to Karthus' vault area, even if it did feel like another dimension, she could just walk out of it the same way Zoe and Karthus were going to walk in.

Zoe shrugged her shoulders, smiled, and, using the stick, smacked the skull with its homeowner inside away. The blow did a little more than she thought it would, causing the fragile bone to break where she it it, but the result was the snail being flung away a few meters, coming to rest somewhere in the brush. _"Okay! Probably not a stove though. She really likes stoves, and it might be hard to get her to leave with one of those available to her."_ As strange as it sounded, this was not a false claim. Tasha, when able to, liked to be in the middle of heated areas, as her lack of concern the first they Karthus saw her, dancing atop a heated slab of steel she used as a grill, should have told him. Giving her a stove or an oven would mean she might make it into a little apartment for herself. _"Unless you wanted to keep her around for awhile. Probably not the safest thing to do. She's hard for me to match in most places, and impossible in a world she's already claimed for her master. She's really scary when she wants to be."_

Zoe titled her head and looked at the items she held, the snail poking its head out to stare back at her from the left eye socket. _"They don't seem dangerous. The snail is actually really cu-"_ She began to say, and then stopped and looked at it with a nervous expression on her face as it exposed more of its body from the other orifices of the skull. Thick, slimy tendrils emerged from the ears, mouth, and bottom as what seemed like a hand, three digits with slightly pointed ends, began wiggling out of the bone and toward her arm. Zoe adjusted her grip on it, tossing it slightly into the air and gripping the back of the skull with her fingers, putting as much distance from the tendrils and her skin as possible before setting it down on the ground and stepping away from it. The snail attempted to move closer to her, half rolling on the ground, until she picked up a stick and used it to hold the animal in place. She then looked at Karthus with an odd expression on her face. _"She usually brings her knives wherever she goes, but then makes due with what she can find. She travels very light, but is also a master of makeshift-making all of the things!"_ Zoe informed before turning her attention back to the snail, which had now retreated back into the skull, waiting for her to move on.

It was 80 degrees one day, 54 the next, and now it's around 65.)) _"Oh, I see! Now I wonder how pickled pig feet taste. Wouldn't that be hard to eat though? I mean, those are like hooves from horses and goats, right? Bones or something similar?_" Zoe would say as they moved from sea to land and land to castle in the marsh. This and other comments would be made in regards to the beast. Now and again, Zoe did take note of things nearby and within sight, or things she saw, and walked over to investigate briefly before returning, something with something in her hands. Said items included an armful of thorn-covered apples the size of her fist, a cluster of grapes with marks on them that looked more like blood-red eyes with pupils, and a skull made into the shell for some kind of snail. Inside the marsh, she had gotten close to a some kind of beehive, but did not grab it when she saw it was over a pound of mud with an unknown depth. She had stopped when her first step in sunk her down to her knees. _"Oh! We need stuff! Like a stove, firewood, and kitchen utensils! Do you have any in your castle? I think you said there was a cauldron."_

The bubble burst after an inch or two of pulling, popping in a shower of reflective purple and pink sparks as they fell to the water. _"That was fun! Now I really want to meet a kraken and play tag with it too!"_ She had fun, something she often did at the expense of others but a typical day in the life of a chaotic deity with seemingly unlimited access of magical powers. When Karthus summoned their boat back over, Zoe climbed in and shook off part of the water on herself. She did not show it, but she had little magical powers left. She could cast perhaps two or three powerful spells, but her lower, weaker, but also more useful and utility spells were used up reducing the underwater beast of great strength to the strength of a common minotaur; still strong, but much less so. At his comment about moving it, Zoe tilted her head at him curiously. _"We were moving the whole thing? I thought we were just going to choice parts, like the liver to go with onions, the tongue to roast or grill, maybe a leg to deep fry, and the... what's that other part of the animal people really like? The one streaks come from?"_ While she did favor most of the pastry and sugary dishes, Zoe did have a little knowledge of other types of food.

Or perhaps not. She was not sure how much of her magical defenses were hers and how much of them were from her being a deity. At least the swimming was fun, and the beast was slowing down to the point she was not having to dodge it as quickly. When it's movements were slowed to a degree she assumed it to be mostly harmless to her, Zoe turned around and began swimming away from it and up toward the surface. She was not going far enough to be at the surface, but she did know that her water breathing spell was fading, and she did not want to find out if she could cast spells under water. After a fair amount of strokes away from it, she began looking around for Karthus, not sure where he was since she was more focused on playing with the creature (or rather avoiding its attacks and getting off her own).

If it makes you feel any better, I work in retail, so the next 2 and a half months are likely to be really tough and tiring for me. Which means I should be more active for the rest of this one.)) Dude to her own lack of natural of how much damage she could take, Zoe decided to stay back, focusing more on avoiding the beast's natural weapons of claws and fangs and using basic, even if they are greatly empowered due to her level of spell-casting ability, spells (such as Magic Missile, various orbs and splashes, and rays). ... Or so one would think, but, rather than doing that, she increased her natural swim speed and used that to dart around the beast, playfully dodging its attempts to hit her and slapping its claws. Based on the pieces of ice that drifted off of it with each touch, it was easy to identify that Zoe was using Chill Touch, or at least some form of it; a spell that dealt cold damage, but also had the added bonus of weakening a creature's physical strength. Perhaps the most dangerous position she could be as a mage, but she was relying on her small size and better mobility to dodge and sneak in her own attacks when it missed her. Besides, this way was far more fun to her than fighting defensively, and it was not like she was having no effect on the beast.

Breaking the water's surface and going into a swim after landing, Zoe demonstrated that she was actually a very good swimmer. For all of her magical abilities, being athletic without the aid of magic was probably the last thing on one's mind. The water stung at her skin, most likely tiny organisms trying to bite into her skin, but she ignored them and moved her hand to her bubble helmet to make sure it was working. The spell acted as both a helmet to keep her from drowning and a way of recycling air from the water and vice versa. The mechanics of it was not something she thought of, mostly due to the complexities of magic itself, but, thankfully, the way to active the spell was just to have the materials and know the spell or hand motions. The problem with the spell was that her vision and hearing were distorted. Seeing through the water was already a problem, but now it was harder. She'd work on that as they went. She followed Karthus' silhouette, barely more than a humanoid blur in her vision, and found that the shackles did not hinder her movements as much as she first though it would. Small stature did have its upsides from time to time. When they found and were attacked by the creature's acid breath, Zoe swam away from the acid and moved her air bubble from her head to her right hand, giving her better vision, and used her left to make the hand symbols for a Light spell, targeted on the creature. She needed the bubble to breathe, but, if the creature was glowing, she could use both of her hands. Instead of a golden or bright light, the creature began to shine, a green and purple aura around it that shone like a torch in a dark room. It was not an amazing spell, she considered trying to cast a Cone of Cold on it to freeze it in place, but she wanted to be able to see it.

Just got a surge of demotivation before I got motivated again to post recently! ^^ Speaking of which, I’ll respond both to this and to your thread! Two portal buddies has now become... three portal buddies? Or is technically four?)) _Yuumi meowed as she stared at the human, leaving quickly to get something. Huh, what a strange human! Must be getting her some fish! Sure, it isn’t lunch time yet, but this cat can improvise her eating times. Staring at the screen, she squinted and tilted her head. This thing was such a weird thing. Why did it have all these bright lights on? Extending one of her front legs, she began to paw onto the screen as she asked her friend behind her,_ “Book? Do you know what this is?” _She became a bit entranced by the PC in front of her._ _Book quickly rose up from his place, floating in the air to stare at this strange device. He saw something about ‘electricity’ concerning this somewhere, but there was no thunder nearby. Must be some sort of magical spell. The book moved himself towards the screen, standing in front of Yuumi’s view as he shrugged the corners of his open pages. Turning around, the book then floated back a bit to take a good look at what was on display._ _Yuumi kept pawing and pawing until her eyes noticed something. Out of instinct, Yuumi tried to catch this new pop up with her two palms, though she was disappointed when she saw that her new catch wasn’t actually tangible. Aww, that sucks! Meowing sadly, she squinted at these strange symbols before the pop up went away. The cat gasped as she saw... a human?! Wait, she was trapped inside this evil device! She kept trying to paw onto the girl, exclaiming,_ “Don’t worry human, I’ll get you out of there!” _Book was dumbfounded as well. What was this human doing there? Was she actually trapped? He floated a bit closer to the screen, trying to watch this strange human glide across the device. Yuumi might not be able to read, but he sure can! Though, even if he can read, what were these ‘firewalls’? What was this ‘hacking’? Did she mean a literal wall made out of fire? In that case, that’s actually kind of neat, though a bit scary to think about! Hopefully she doesn’t set the place on fire... but what if she does?_ “Book, do you know what she’s saying?” _Yuumi turned to her friend as she stopped pawing onto the screen for a second._ _Honestly. These words that this girl mentioned were words he never heard before. Thus, he replied honestly by tilting himself downwards and shaking his head. No, he does not._ “But I thought you can read!” _Turning back to the screen, Yuumi stared at the screen again before an idea suddenly came up in her head. This screen must be a portal that they have to jump through! With a smile, she let her paws go away from the screen and stepped back, getting into position to jump,_ _Aaand Book knew exactly where this was going. It was not a pretty solution at all! He tried to do float nearby her, perhaps she could rethink her actions? The book shook itself, trying to tell the cat that it was a bad idea to just jump straight into the screen. But he already could see that she wasn’t listening. Thus, he floated upwards, ready to catch her if anything really bad happens,_ ((Poor cat can’t read! Now I’m contemplating whether or not to let Book have a page with a portal to the PC just so they can hop in))

I go through the same thing weekly. Also, I am basing a lot of Zoe's interactions here on the animation series by Alan Becker and his 'Animation vs' series.)) As Zoe watched the cat and book through the other side of the monitor from within the computer itself, the method by which she ended up this way due to her own powers and perfect understanding of mathematical world as she knew it and others lived in it, she began to wander if the cat knew what it was doing and if the book was the more intelligent of the two. She debated her options, and then decided to look for a more direct way to communicate with them, and she had seen her way to do so in the menu options. She went back to the Start icon, climbed through it until she found what she was looking for, and opened the voice chat, enabled it, messed with the settings, and, when she turned back to the cat and book, and saw a jumping cat flying toward the her. _"AH! Don't do that!"_ She called out, her voice coming from the speakers of the computer, but there was nothing she could do to stop the cat from crashing into the screen. She could open a portal into the computer, saving the monitor from damage, but, in her panic, she did not think to do that.

Or something like that.
: OOC Lounge
I've returned to brain storming the Star Guardian Academy thingy I made mention of ages ago but stopped because of life crippling stress and depression. Anyway, instead of just the SG stuff, I was thinking of including the Battle Academy stuff too. Characters, let's say Ahri and Ezreal, can pick either version they want, but there can only be 1 of both. Example: Ahri can be SG, and Ezreal can be SG and BA; or vice versa. There will be teachers, students, teachers that should be students in another school (10 to 15 year olds teaching 18 to 23 year olds is hilarious to me!), and students who show up only to say they are at school but never attend classes, and all in between. Program and Battlecast ones are also fine (anime high school FTW!), as well as others we could work out. I do want there to be a series of plot points and activities for other in them to do if they want. These include silly things like essays, stories, working together on projects, emergency situations and how you would get out of them a group of your personally selected friends, and other stuff.

Zoe considered the lich's words about the dangers of running into a kraken and how much effort went into killing one, and he thoughts quickly turned to comparing it with octopi and squids and other similar creatures... including eels and turtles. Her expression turned from smiling to a straight, thinking expression to, lastly, a smile again as she chuckled at various mental images of combining the creatures in her head into what a kraken might look like. Her thoughts were broken, her eyes blinking several times, when she heard the water splash from the harpoon attack, and then down to the water as she saw the creature retreating. She turned her head to him, tilting her head as she did, and nodded her head with a smile. _"I'll dry off, no problem!"_ She took a deep breath, cupping her hands in front of her face as she did... and then reached into the water with one hand to get a bit of the creature's blood on her finger. She used this as a material component and her other hand for the somatic component to create a bubble, blowing into the 'O' of her touching pointer finger and thumb toward the ichor to create a temporary bubble of air for herself. While not an amazing spell, this would serve as a kind of helmet for breathing underwater; at least for an hour. _"CANNONBALL!"_ She shouted as she quickly stood and splashed into the dark water. Aspect powers or no, shackled ankles or no, she was still a fairly reckless and over confident mage.

Zoe moved to the other side of the boat, giving him room to throw his weapon as well as watch the shadow beneath them. She had not been able to see much of the figure when she dunked her head into the water, it was too dark and either it was too deep or had a natural camouflage to it.
: ((Good meowning! Figured i'd do a really quick intro beside Mount Targon!)) _A swirly, yellow symbol started to glow by the edge of the mountain, right by the 'entrance'. It wasn't any normal sort of glow either, nono, the glow was strong and the symbol kept moving in swirls. After a few seconds, it began to rapidly dim down after someone hopped out of it._ _Strutting away with absolute glee, Yuumi held her head high with a fish caught within the grasps of her teeth. It wasn't after a couple of steps that she slowed down her pace from the mountain. Opening her eyes as she began to scan the area in front of her, she frowned as she looked back, asking,_ "Where are we now, Book?" _Book slowly followed her, trying to catch his energy from having to quickly grab and transport someone. Tilting his pages around to look around, the sight of the mountain behind him suddenly made him hop a bit higher into the air. Floating really quickly past Yuumi. Setting himself on the ground in front of her, he began to flip his pages until he finally found the right page._ _Yuumi stared at the page opened, her head tilted to the side as she began to paw onto the page. It was... a mountain! With weird drawings on them! Wait a second, Master always loved illustrations! This was the right place to check!_ "You're right Book! If Master went to a mountain filled with people who draw those symbols, then she would be here!"

Figured i'd do a really quick intro beside Mount Targon!)) ((It's fine. I will think of something.)) The land of and around Targon was in its transition period from one season to another. It was a warm, cloudy day, fresh pools of rainwater dotted the landscape, and a handful of small wildlife could be seen around the area, as well as a few barrels meant to collect the fresh water. It was among these puddles that Zoe could be seen, ducking in and out of portals as she searched for something she was sent to retrieve for one of the other aspects. Normally, her duties meant she would be a messenger or harbinger, but she was also called upon to collect an item or deliver an item to someone somewhere for some reason. After a few instances of her failing to complete her task, it was decided that culinary deliveries would left to those attaining the item. Zoe was, after, a lover of sweets and all things pasty related. As her search drew her closer to the base of the mountain, she stopped when she saw a portal that was not hers open and out appeared a cat and a book. They did not notice her at first because of where they appeared from, but she saw them almost immediately. She waited a few seconds, and then smiled and waved before calling out. _"HEEEEY!!! Are you chasing the giant, magic catfish!?"_ She called out from her portal, halfway out of it.

If it makes you feel any better, the other day was crazy for me. A retirement agency van left a grandmother and I had to keep checking on her while she waited for them to take their sweet time getting to the store, and then a couple locked their keys in their car and I had to help with that too. Hopefully things will be better.)) Zoe considered this for several seconds. She could disguise her aura with some practice, and it would likely prevent most spell caster from trying to immediately banish her, futile as their attempts were. It would help her get closer to animals and interesting creatures. _"Do you think we should ask the spider lady first? Targon will be fine it's attacked, a lot of them will probably be thrilled to have some fights, but you'd have a couple visits from angry crazies banging on your door and demanding revenge for killing their god._" Of course, she was assuming the Targonian traditions hadn't changed and warriors were more than willing to go to war with just about anyone for any reason. For her, Zoe was born a Lunari, which meant she was to be a scribe or spy, and so she was freed from the intensive training regiments of most Solari went through. She recalled her father being out from sun rise to sun down training with others under the unforgiving sun, preparing for battle. From him, she learned that these regiments were reduced during war times, as warriors had to be more rested in case of sudden enemy attacks. Less exercise and more combat, as opposed to training every day. As she pondered this, her eyes caught the outline of something in the water below them. She took a breath before leaning over and dunking her head into the dark water. It felt strange, unnatural, and did little to improve her vision of the thing, but she could see that it was fairly far below. After a few seconds, she pulled her head out of the water and shook it partly dry. _"What kind of giant fish are there here?"_

As a little girl, when she was mortal, she could still get along with cats and dogs by calling out to them or offering them treats and small portions of food, but now, as an aspect, they did not want to be around her. _"I leave for only two millennia and it feels like everything's evolved to be afraid of me."_ Her main problem being that she was, usually anyway, a deity that gave off a powerful aura most animals and gifted or experienced spell casters could identify easily. It wasn't that she was coming off too strongly in trying to get their attention, but that animals could immediately detect that she was a threat and fled from her as quickly as they could. _"Are spiders even edible?"_ She asked as she looked over the side of the boat and into the water. After a few seconds, she put her hand into the dark sea, testing it for signs of danger, and then pulling her hand from it. _"Vilemaw sounds really poisonous. Like even touching it would make you sick."_

Drag would be a problem, but would the standard length be a larger problem? Also, WoW Classic has been more fun than I thought it would be.)) _"Maybe."_ Zoe would reply with an innocent smile and tone. Shackled and limited as she was, she did indeed still have some powerful spells and abilities at hand. Even if she could not use them to shape the world and warp reality, she could use simple spells at a higher level and alter the fates of others. The spells were simple enough, magic missiles, mage armor, and shield, plus a few elemental orbs (nothing like fireballs, meteors swarms, lightning storms, or moving the earth), but it was that fate altering that gave her the edge in making it through the Shadow Isles and its surrounding waters. _"What about that spider thing? The one the crazy people come to visit and get eaten by for..."_ She stopped mid speech as she caught sight of something moving in the brush, and then snapped her fingers in its direction; conjuring four bell-shaped lights to appear. _"Hey! I see you there!"_ She called out and waved her hand before the thing moved away, dashing through the brush and away from the lights. In response, Zoe made a pouting face and glared in the thing's direction. _"Why does that keep happening? I tried petting them with Mage Hand, I tried sneaking up on them, I tried spooking them to show that I can be scary too, and now they even run away when I notice them. Do animals just not like small aspects?"_ It was a constant problem for her that she just could never notice: she tried too hard too quickly to become friends with the wildlife. At least most of the larger ones, like horses and cows, didn't seem to mind when she hugged them immediately.

I wonder which would be harder to swim with: the weight of the chains or the length of the chains.)) _"That mist is a real thing? I thought it was a low-hanging storm this whole time."_ Deities, and aspects such as Zoe, had the ability to gain information on anything they so chose, but one had to want to know that and consciously activate this ability. Zoe pushed on the boat with her foot, testing how stuck it was and what kind of rot had set in to the boat. Small as it was, it looked to be seaworthy with some mending magic and carrying it back to the water. _"I don't really know how to sail. I kind of got here with a catapult and some magic I could muster to keep myself from hitting the ground too hard. I felt like a shooting star! And then a meteor! Oh! I think I'll do that again when we get these shackles off me."_ ((I forgot how I said Zoe got to the Shadow Isles, so I made up or changed it to something fun.)) She giggled at the memory of her journey, the short boat ride from one island to the other (someone was missing their boat, but there were two so it shouldn't be that bad), and then her walk through the swamp to the lich's castle, and then the ideas of how she would have changed the method to make it brighter and prettier.

: _”I think I like deserts at night more than during the day. So many more creatures and critters out- Oh! Found one!”_ She said as she picked up a rock and saw a lizard underneath. It looked up at her, she looked down at it, and it skittered away. _”Bye-bye. Fine some shade.”_ She said before places the rock down and standing back up. She had somewhere to be and people to see, after all. Shurima really was a much different place than she remembered. The great cities, small towns, hidden cults, and scenery had all changed. At least there were not grand armies led by giant people armed with weapons possessed by hateful spirits. How they ever got into their heads to make such things were... not beyond her thinking but something she still did not see a point in doing. She guessed it was corruption of the Void mixing in to Ascendants and their ways of being created, but she couldn’t tell for sure. Nothing like that ever happened in Targon. For her though, she was off to meet herself. Well, another version of herself that had found her way into her home Runeterra. It seemed this Zoe liked to explore and play pretend, influenced by these stories of a place called Egypt and the curses rumored to be in them. For Zoe, they were undead wrapped in bandages. For this other Zoe, they were the mummified servants of the pharaoh; whatever those were. For Zoe, she was just curious to meet another version of herself and say hi. For this other Zoe, she wanted to leave a trace that she had been to the world using something called a pyramid… not the math thing, but a building. ((Yep. Zoe's going to meet Pharaoh Zoe.))

The pyramid tomb was huuuuuge! ...or at least it would seem that way by the size of the opening, which was the tip of it. Standing fifteen feet from the point to the sand, then being buried in the sand for another ten feet, and sloping down at a 60 degree angle, it had the potential to be rather large. However, as Zoe knew from touching it and a quick pulse of magic to examine it, that was it. The rest was more like that of a three story house, with this sandstone triangle acting as a very impressive roof. Finding this out actually made Zoe chuckle nervously as she sent another pulse through it, gaining a good idea of the interior structure. _"-sigh- Well, even I don't know how the old Shurima people made these things, I guess other versions of me wouldn't know either."_ She took a deep breath of the warm, desert air, and then walked around until she found a doorway in. She had to press a loose brick into the rest of the stonework, and waiting as she heard a clicking inside. Seconds later, the door slid backwards and to the left, revealing an opening into the rest of the tomb. After she skipped in, humming to herself, she stopped when she heard a voice from below. **_"Close the door please! I'm still working on that!"_** It sounded like her, but it also sounded dusty and dry, like she had a mouthful of sand. _"Right away!"_ She called out in reply, and then turned, made a shooting motion with her hand, and the brick moved back into place. She repeated this with the door, and it moved as well. _"I'm Zoe, by the way! This dimension's Zoe! How are you doing!?"_ There were a few seconds of silence as Zoe made her way through the shrinking darkness, torches becoming lit as she approached and glowing with yellow flames, until the other Zoe spoke. **_"Oh! Hey there! I'm Zoe too, but I'm from a dimension where Shurima didn't have the god-warriors and they just kind of kept growing! Don't worry though! Targon didn't fall, the cultures just kind of mixed together."_** Didn't have the god-warriors? She guessed that meant the ascendants were less powerful in that dimension. Now she was really looking forward to talking with this other version of herself!

Zoe was glad to be closer to more natural water for nothing more than that she could see deeper into it. She had nothing against necromancy or swamps, but she liked to know where she was stepping in the event that she had to walk on the ground, through water, and the like. _"Are you talking about herons? The birds with the long spear-looking beaks? I remember watching some nomad people fishing with their hands in open streams, standing there and thrusting their hands in to grab a fish, but I don't think either of us are fast enough to do that."_ And yet the image of the two of them trying made the aspect smile and giggle. Maybe Karthus would have more luck doing that with his skeletal hands and the reduced air resistance they provided, but she could image herself trying to catch them before resorting to chasing after them and shooting off magic missiles. She paused for a moment, something catching her eye, and then turned and started toward the remains of a rowboat along the coastline. The wreckage appeared a few weeks old, the boat broken at the front before the first seat where it hit the sand. Nearby were oars, four of them, and mostly empty save for what looked like a torn fishing net and some rotten rope. When she was only a few more feet from it, Zoe began to lean toward it as she began to more closely examine it, picking up one of the oars as she passed it and then the net when she got closer. _"Does this happen a lot, or are there little fishing colonies on smaller islands here?"_

The eldritch creature liked unusual ingredients to cook with, always trying to turn something into a dish for a meal, but never knowing what or who might like it. The Shadow Isles, with its unusual energies and properties, had potential to make normal plants and animals unique, but what could they find? The answer: most anything on the islands, probably, but Zoe wanted her shackles off sooner rather than later. To that end... _"Let's go fishing! You said there was an aquatic plant around there anyway, right? Why don't we get a swarm of piranha and other fish too, and see what we can find along the way there."_ She suggested with a smile. Something fun that Zoe did whenever she was crossing the sea or near beaches was to reverse the gravity on the water in a selected area, sometimes just swapping the top with the bottom but mostly moving a large shape of water, fish and all, out of the ocean, into the air, and diving in to see what she had gotten before dropping it back in. Never mind the untold damage she likely inflicted onto the wildlife and geography (sometimes these were several to many miles of water cubes after all), she had fun just the same. Of course, she wouldn't ask Karthus to do that; she'd fell kind of bad for any of the undead fish that might get crushed from the spellwork.

I've not been motivated to do much lately due to stress over bills, hard work days because of summer, and making up sessions for my dungeons and dragons groups. So, let's do something like that.)) It was late into the day, dusk closing in on the world, and it seemed there were no signs of civilizations across the hilly landscape of the grassy plains. As Kamilah crossed into a collection, she would see some of the hills that appeared different from others, containing windows and doors made of thatch, tall grass stalks, and tree bark. The light of an oil lantern gave off the tell-tell sign of habitation from one, along with a shadow cast against the wall from inside. Within this home of a hill, Zoe emerged through the door, opening it with one arm as the other held a large basket; the head of a dog peeking out and panting happily. _"Thanks for the puppy! I'll take good care of it, promise! Oh! Can I come next week for that pie eating contest too?"_ There was a short conversation before Zoe waved bye and closed the door as she left, walking a short distance before her feet left the ground and she began to lazily float in the air. With gravity no longer keeping her land-locked, she took the puppy from the basket, a small, brown dog with patches of darker fur on her body, and began to nuzzle and hug it to herself. _"Oh! You're so cute! It's been a long time since I've had a puppy! Aurelion Sol's gotten too big for me to hug and cuddle, and, just between me and you, I think he's trying to run away and get away from me."_ She told it, and the dog merely barked happily. _"I know! He's been getting harder and harder to find lately though."_ She said before pouting.

He didn’t say much just watching her building with the sand and listening. He then had an curious question came to his mind, a bit personal but not sure if he should ask “ so um, Zoe have you fell in love with anyone?

She then poured a little sand out inside what would be the courtyard before making two more mini-Zoes. _"You, work on the stairs. You, start on the bedrooms."_ She then leaned down, looking inside the castle for the original one. _"How's the structure? Do we need supports?"_

Sorry for the late reply. The last few days were hard for me.)) _"Ooo! Those sound really cool! Are they like whatever that plant lady, Zyra I think she goes by now, or a sprite inhabiting it like that one tree-guy?"_ Zoe stopped in mid-stride, putting her feet to the ground as she thought. She put a hand to the side of her face and began to ponder and think to herself, considering something as she looked around, seeing a world and the possibilities that led to it. After a few seconds, she shrugged her shoulders and smiled again, putting the thoughts to the side for now. _"Oh! Tasha loves potatoes too! She calls them the perfect ingredient because they go great with lots of different dishes. Are there any around here? Actually, do those grow in the wild, or are they just a farm crop? I'm a consumer, not a provider, after all."_

She also knew enough about the forces she manipulated to prevent them from being as dangerous as many people might thought they would be. Outside and looking around, even if only inside the castle courtyard, Zoe was on the lookout, holding her hands to her eyes like binoculars as she scanned the area with each step. _"A carnivorous plant sounds fun!

While her powers as an Aspect certainly overshadowed those of her normal abilities, it was her innate, but unpolished mind you, abilities as a sorceress that let her survive her journey to the Shadow Isles and toward Karthus' castle. During her time as a mortal, it was not rare that one would be born with some kind of ability, but gifted mages were also not a common thing. Had her life turned out differently, Zoe would have likely been a student of magic for the Lunari, or perhaps a spell-smith maintaining their weaponry. _"So, what are looking for first? I saw this weird, bleeding moss growing off a shambling zombie on the way here. Well, it might have been an open sore. I didn't get close enough to tell because there were a bunch of bugs around."_

: It's the End of the World as We Know It! Let's Play Tag! (Ask Zoe)
_”I think I like deserts at night more than during the day. So many more creatures and critters out- Oh! Found one!”_ She said as she picked up a rock and saw a lizard underneath. It looked up at her, she looked down at it, and it skittered away. _”Bye-bye. Fine some shade.”_ She said before places the rock down and standing back up. She had somewhere to be and people to see, after all. Shurima really was a much different place than she remembered. The great cities, small towns, hidden cults, and scenery had all changed. At least there were not grand armies led by giant people armed with weapons possessed by hateful spirits. How they ever got into their heads to make such things were... not beyond her thinking but something she still did not see a point in doing. She guessed it was corruption of the Void mixing in to Ascendants and their ways of being created, but she couldn’t tell for sure. Nothing like that ever happened in Targon. For her though, she was off to meet herself. Well, another version of herself that had found her way into her home Runeterra. It seemed this Zoe liked to explore and play pretend, influenced by these stories of a place called Egypt and the curses rumored to be in them. For Zoe, they were undead wrapped in bandages. For this other Zoe, they were the mummified servants of the pharaoh; whatever those were. For Zoe, she was just curious to meet another version of herself and say hi. For this other Zoe, she wanted to leave a trace that she had been to the world using something called a pyramid… not the math thing, but a building. ((Yep. Zoe's going to meet Pharaoh Zoe.))

Sorry. I will be just a touch more active now.)) _"There aren't many things in these Isles with actual appetites, right? So, as long as she does not find a way off the islands, things should be okay."_ Animals, insects, fish, and undead did eat, in one way or another, but not in a way that Zoe thought the embodiment of hunger would be much interested in. Maybe as snacks to see how they tasted, but that probably was not a problem. _"Let's go gathering!"_ The aspect exclaimed as she threw her arms into the air, and then put them down again. _"You know, this will be the first time in... maybe 3,000 years I've looked for anything without knowing exactly where it was and what was around it. I'm excited to see what might jump out me and how I'll instinctively react!"_ Despite most of her powers being locked away by the shackles around her ankles, Zoe was still a powerful sorceress. Not the most powerful, but able to conjure more magic than an above average mage. With the thought of danger, adventure, and feelings she had not felt since before becoming an aspect, she stood up, stretched her arms above her head, and turned toward the doorway... before falling forward as she tried to levitate off the ground and zoom forward. _"OW!"_ She quickly got back up onto her knees and blinked her eyes in confusion. She was not hurt, that much of her powers still active, but she did come to realization that spells and magical enchantments would have to be consciously used. _"Haha. I'll walk for now."_ She said to herself, and stood up, smiling and turning her head to Karthus to show that she was okay.

I mean, they are, but they have their beginning and ends like all of us. Well, except aspects; we kind of just reincarnate into new vessels and don't really die."_ The laws and ordering of those beyond mortal minds and comprehensions were as mysterious as they could get... _"I think. I've never paid that much attention to the others. A little trickle of power comes to me whenever someone plays a prank, uses magic or a portal to travel long distances, or sends a message via spell. Pantheon gains power from fighting and death, Solar siphons a little every day from creatures under its light, and Lunar draws a little from worship in the shadows and at night. I think Ornn gets power every time someone makes anything at a forge or bends metal, but I could be wrong."_ Then again, the current Aspect of Twilight did what she wanted to, whenever and wherever she wanted to, and to whoever and whatever she wanted to for little more reason than a whim or because she thought it would be fun to interact and see what happened. _"Are there any unique plants and animals on the Shadow Isles that can't be found anywhere else? I'm sure Tasha would love to try to make them into common treats and foods. She's even worked with rotten and spoiled foods to turn them into edible and delicious dishes."_

She's nice and is the best cook I've ever known, and she only wants to end world hunger on the worlds she knows of and finds."_ Zoe said, but then her expression turned from happy and causal to unsure. _"How she does that seems to vary though."_ The aspect had been to worlds Tasha said she was finished with. Some were what others might call a paradise in which all creatures got along, some were average in their appearance and structure, but then there were others that felt wrong. Some were empty save for nature, and others were in a state of constant distress. However, all of them had one thing in common: none went hungry. Plants, animals, sentient creatures and humanoids were all well fed and maintained good nutritional values, but there were problems in other aspects of the world. There were some that even made her afraid to stay or return to. _"She's easy to keep contained, at least. We'll just need some food and empty stomachs. She lives to feed others, and she gets some kind of energy from people eating around her. Kind of weird, but then again I get power from people playing pranks on others... or at least I would if these weren't here."_ She said, and then clapped her feet together, making the chains of the shackles rattle.

I will look at it soon. A little busy with bills and work and other stuff.)) The explosion and its effect on the magical bindings spread through the chains did indeed leave their mark, but structural damage was already being mended by the enchantment placed on them. To be fair, they were made by a deity and improved by mortals, and who knows what improvements were placed on them? The resulting effect went off and after it finished, Zoe was forced back and off her seat, which she quickly recovered from with a smile and a laugh. _"Hahaha! That was fun! Even if it didn't work."_ She pulled herself back up onto her seat and crossed her legs in front of herself, placing her hands on her ankles and rocking back and forth slightly in silence for a time. When she finally did stop to speak, there was the hint of uncertainty in her voice. _"I can show you how to, and then you could summon Tasha to this Runeterra."_ Tasha... the cook the two of them had met that served a master unlikely anything Karthus likely knew of and prepared worlds for said master to one day devour. The creature who's body served as a mouth and worked within a kitchen that served as but another part of its body. If the void was a danger to Runeterra, Tasha may very well be the worst thing that could happen to it... Or maybe she's the best thing for it. After all, the creature looked like a monster, and yet it only wanted to cook food and be accepted as a chef. From the living to the dead and possibly to the sentient and not, everything that lived had to eat, and she was a veteran cook that knew how to feed almost everything (constructs still eluded her, for now). _"She might be able to eat the shackles, but then again she will also know how to get to this world."_ ((I am working on a champion concept for Tasha actually. I think she'll be fun.))

Don’t you feel lonely sometimes all by yourself?” He ask with curiosity not sure if it’s to personal talk about her life, even tho he know zoe’s Mind set is care free, positive, and always playful.

A family...? Zoe shook her head, still smiling, as she made her way her work in progress sand castle. It looked like a mix between Mount Targon, Noxus, and Demacia structures, like a city built into a mountain with natural walls around it. _"My family died out a really, really, really, REALLY long time ago. I may have some descendants around somewhere, but I've not been interested in looking for them and meeting up with them."_ She used her hands to mold the sand into a rough design of a tower, but then shook her head and decided to make it larger. She took some of the water contained in her hair to wash away the walls she had made before Jamie arrived, and made them again two inches away. _"I'd rather explore and play and go back to previously explored areas of the dimensions and universes I've been to. Besides, they wouldn't be related to me, just the mortal I was as a brother, a sister, or something like that."_ Zoe was only a child when she became the Aspect of Twilight, and so she left nothing of herself behind. No demigods, no half-gods, just her parents and any other family she might have had but did not start or spread herself.

I am back! Also, I think I've mentioned that I am a DM for a group of friends. If not, I am. Last time we played, they stopped a balor from being bound and contained in an iron flask for a surprise attack by a very unexpected round of events. One of the players has a ring of blinking and a ring of silence, so he just blinked through a wall, interrupted the binding spell, stole the flask, and then blinked back out. Now, there is a balor that has followed the evil NPCs through a teleportation circle and into an area the PCs don't know about. I love my group of out-of-the-box thinking friends.)) _"The universe isn't that interesting, but other dimensions are. You're the grim reaper in one world, the singer of a heavy metal band in another, and a popular figure of freedom and diplomacy in another, but those are just the one's I've been to. I know another me in another world of technology and hextech is a hacker that can change the world by writing numbers and equations on a notepad!"_ ((I like to image the skins of champions are alternate realities.)) Exploring their home universe was something she had done a few times already, but it was traveling to new and different ones that she had the most fun with. She couldn't bring but a few, if anything at all, creatures and items from these other worlds, but it was fun and interesting. Well, there were a few mistakes she had made that caused irreversible damage to a few worlds, universes, people, and cultures, but she did her best to not forget to clean up after herself... at least for her Runeterra. _"Okay. Fire away! And, if this doesn't work, I have another idea that could be very dangerous but also very fun!"_

I am moving to a new home soon and won't have internet until later this month. So, sadly, Zoe will be off somewhere for some reason causing trouble, pranks, panic, and hi-jinks to other poor, poor souls.

Mortal magic is cool! I mean, they can't change reality or go where they want without inviting who knows what from only aspects know where into their world, but did you know about those moving boxes on the giant strings in Piltover? So cool!"_ > > Technology was not something Zoe understood very well, but, as a deity, science was magic to her. The way humans could make so many things into one thing was simply amazing, and very difficult for her to figure out even with help. > > A tram system that went from the bottom of a cliff to the top by means of gears and a pulley, refinement of naturally occurring oil from the ground into a power source for machines, turning plants and animal products into food and resources... these and more were seen as magic to the reality breaking, dimension traveling, and seemingly all powerful aspect of twilight. > > Besides, her favorite treat, moon pies, were made by mortals without the use of magic. It was something she could not duplicate with her powers. > > _"Oooh! That's a good one! Is it empty? I don't want to take someone's home from them."_ > > She asked as she looked at the shell Jamie held. > > ((I like to think Zoe doesn't understand technology and instead views it as magic, while she views her own magic and that of others as their own abilities.)) Listen to Zoe talk he finds her pretty amusing and fun, Jamie knows what she is but wondering how long she had lived and place she had been to. He wonder why Zoe Still in form of a child, could she been trap in this form? Or is she Remain in a child form just for fun. Jamie wanted to ask many things about her but decide not to for now worried it would be too personal for her. “oh um, it’s ah, it’s empty....empty, yeah ” response quick nodding awkwardly, been thinking a lot of questions in his head. “ the moving boxes on the giant strings, you mean Ferris wheel? I been on it once tho but flying with magic is more fun don’t you think?” He said offer her the shell (( I see i see, I gotta said I love the way you rp zoe. It’s like totally like her xD

Zoe reached over and took the shell from Jamie, not in a stealing way but to look into it before holding it to her ear. She stayed like this for a few seconds, and then started giggling before taking it away from her head. _"I can fly anytime I want, but I can't sit in a moving box that often unless I use magic or someone or something launches it off the ground._" She then turned toward the water and used her buckle and shovel to gather some wet sand, packing it into the bucket before putting the shell on top and turning back around. _"Okay! Time to make the second floor of the third layer!"_

Then again, she was more preoccupied with the wildlife as she walked across the water. Her deity powers were mostly sealed due to the shackles, but Zoe was still a powerful sorceress. Walking on the water's surface and chasing fish and sharks or dolphins that showed themselves in the water was more fun than she thought it would be. There was some charm in not being able to teleport around the world and having to journey the old fashion way... at least as old fashion as a centuries old spell caster could. _"Neat!"_ She said with a smile. _"I don't know how to imbue spells into gum though.

Powerful is a force that alters reality, but it can also reinforce reality. I like to travel and go places and see new people, places, and things, so I can change where I am quickly and effectively. I also like to play pranks, so I can change how things works in funny ways."_ (Taking some inspiration from Dragon's Age on this because I am stressed to all heck because of move) Zoe was not a trained magic user, so her spells were based on instinct and wants as she imposed her will on reality. Those that were trained and understood how magic worked could construct barriers and wards against her. If Zoe were a coming flood, all one had to do was build a dam to keep her at bay. The problem was that most obstructions people had placed against her did not account for her aspect-based powers and were simply plowed through or over without her knowing. She followed his example of inscriptions to enchant the bubble gum, but it was clear, as it rumbled and bubbled, deflated, popped, or turned dense, that she was struggling to refine her millennium old technique not working. If Zoe's magic was breaking reality, Karthus's wards were reinforcing it, effectively countering everything she was trying to do to some degree; the same as what the shackles did, only to a personal degree.

She chewed for a few seconds, swapping from the left side of her mouth to the right, and then blowing a bubble that she had expected to lift her into the air but instead popped, covering her face in pink sugar. When it happened, she leaned backwards, surprised by the sudden **POP!**, and remained still for a few seconds before she sucked in through her mouth, making a hole in the bubble gum face mask, and made a humming sound. _"I think my magic's going wild in here. I tried to make the gum make me float, but I ended up enlarging it and popping it."_ Using magic, intentional or not, was second nature to Zoe. She often did not realize she was doing it, but others could certainly tell as reality was changed or laws of physics were broken around her. Using portals, conjuring her paddle and the stars that went with it, storing items in her hair for later, and altering the timestream (forward or backward a few hours) were things she knew to be spells she was casting, but floating, levitating, enchanting mundane items (like bubble gum) usually just happened without her knowing she was doing something. What gave it away this time was that had been expecting to float up, but didn't, and she knew it wasn't the shackles since those only seemed to affect her teleporting spells. After a few seconds in thought, Zoe reached up to her face and began tearing pieces of bubble gum off. _"Anymore gum? This time, I'll try not to use magic."_ The mischievous giggle that followed said otherwise.

It's complicated how Targonian deities and aspects work, and the others wouldn't like me talking to a mortal about them. I don't understand kings, queens, grand generals, warlords, and chieftains."_ It was strange to her that mortals would revere other mortals for different reasons and caused by different things. Animals were one thing, the alpha was usually the best male and could protect the rest more easily, so it should be the one that led its herb. Humans and humanoids were a different story to her. Such as how the nobles in Piltover held greater sway over the city than the wardens or artificers, how the Demacian king was ruled his kingdom instead of the younger, stronger prince or one of the military generals, or how most of the powers in Noxus were kept secret from the public and said powers fought one another for control. Zoe did not understand legacy and how one's accomplishments in the past caused their descendants to enjoy a better life than others. Zoe did not grasp the concept of a monarchy and how countries and nations could be led by a single family line regardless of the current leader's condition. Zoe did not know that mortals could be driven by greed and obsession for power or revenge, and would fight rather than work together to attain higher status or keep control. In Targon, for the rakkor of her time, aspects would choose a vessel or prepare trials for an avatar to empower and intervene in the affairs of the world, mostly for the good of Mount Targon, but sometimes for the benefit of the rest of the world. They may argue with one another, but they always worked together in times of need. _"Hmm. Could I come with you? I'm curious too why you'd want to climb the mountain without knowing that you have to."_

Do you want to change the setting? Another adventure is always an option, or a portal mishap that sends our heroines to separate locations because Zoe saw an inter-dimensional butterfly in the thin stream between existence. Something like that anyway.))

I'm currently working on stuff for my D&D campaign world. The skeleton is in place; I'm working on fleshing more of it out and editing the details. I'm making a wiki for it. I can link it if you're interested. It's an updated version of the old AD&D Isle of Dread module.)) ((If you want to share, sure. I've heard of Isle of Dread and looked a little into it, but I don't think my group would be too interested in it. Currently, I'm DM'ing a campaign themed around 'a dying world'. I don't think it's as ominous as you may think, but the main idea of it is that souls are rarely created in it, so most of the actual life is through the use of the Reincarnate for a new body followed by an altered version of the Mind Blank spell by neutral-aligned deities after all the good-aligned ones left. It's fun.))
