    Default Raven's Nest [Acronym]

    On the side of a cliff overlooking the sea is a little log cabin, small enough that it could have been hand built by a man working alone. One might wonder how it got there. It is on a ledge that is inaccessible by ordinary means. No roads or even footpaths lead to it. Though the ledge has grass and shrubs, it could never have supported enough trees to supply the materials used to build the hut. Someone had to bring the logs in from elsewhere.

    This is the home of Peter Raven. He lives in the Acronymverse, but is not affiliated with any of the organizations. Approach can be made by air, by scaling the cliff from above or below (normal humans will require climbing gear), or magical means.

    In addition to the hut, the ledge contains a single twisted tree and a small stream which emerges from a spring in the white cliffside, winds along the ledge, and pours over the edge. Beneath the tree is a shrine to Woden.

    Atomsized, with climbing gear, appears in the front of the cabin. He knocks on the door.

    Atomsized, peering over the fourth wall, decides not to go into the cabin. However, he scales the area for footprints or any sign of the path Mr. Raven took. Nevertheless, before he does that, he sets a note onto the door of Peter Raven.

    To Mr. Raven:

    My friend has been recently been kazapped and shrunk to a small size by unknown means, however, he says provided me with information that a person/creature named Kaela had turned him to his size. I came to you to find out more about him/her/it, seeing how your setting resembles an Oracle.

    Atomsized finds a path from the cabin to an outhouse. And another path from the cabin to the spring. But no path leading off the ledge, either up or down.

    It's a spring bubbling out of the side of the cliff.

    It is very cold, and the water is very refreshing.

    Late that night, a white raven flies up to the ledge, then shifts into human form. He reads the note.

    Presumably DC floats himself up as well.

    DC does. He also needs something, so he leaves a note.

    I'll be back, just need to get something.

    He is, of course, referring to the ion power core stolen by LaRoth.

    The first note Peter examines has no signature. So he decides there's nothing he can do about it. The second note doesn't require that he actually do anything. So both notes go into the fire.

    Turtle flies up to the ledge, silent and invisible. When she sees her uncle carrying water from the spring, she folds her wings back and dives at him, blade arms first. One blade slices straight through his throat, the other one pierces his chest.

    Peter goes down, hard. Looks like he's bleeding to death.

    With a small rippling of water, Kaela, in the form of a pink dolphin, made, seemingly of shimmering mother'o'pearl, rises up from the water of the spring, cawing, birdlike.

    Kaela, who previously was going to be all mysterious and secretive, in bright pink, sense Atomsized, and, shifting into the form of a pink ball of light, roughly the size of human head, glowing brightly, teleports in front of the newcomer.

Kaela giggles, his light, so pink and perfect, becoming an angry red when his speech does, and then returning to the prior colour. I be Kaela! ... Who be you?

    I'm Atomsized, nice to meet you.

    Then his head clicks, and he remembers.

    Kaela, I came here to ask the Oracle or Raven or whatever about your location, but since you're right here, I need to ask you if you could possible change Dipsnig back to his normal size; he said that you shrank him in the first place.

    Raven's bleeding body disappears, and then reforms on Turtle's back in the form of a tiger. The tiger grabs Turtle's head in its mouth and shakes her violently.

    ... and because it's boring to write a fight scene where I'm doing both combatants, I'll just fast forward to the end....

    Turtle is lying on the ground--bloody, bruised, and with several broken bones. She kept fighting despite this, until her hip was shattered.

    Raven is also hurt pretty badly, but the worst of the wounds, which occurred during Turtle's surprise attack, are healed completely.

    He kneels next to Turtle and touch heals each of her wounds.

    "Better,"
    he says.

    Turtle sits up, beaming in pleasure to receive any approval from her uncle.

    "Can you work with me on my shifting?" Turtle asks. When she was last training with her uncle, her shapeshifting was still uncontrolled, so he had focused on more traditional combat techniques.

    "Mind armour first, Chelonie," Raven says. "Help me carry in the water. Then we'll begin."

    Raven has the three of them sit on a circle in the floor in front of the fire. He puts his fingertips on the side of Turtle's head, with his thumb at the corner of her eye. The end of his thumb goes liquid and seeps into her eye.

    "I can't see into someone's mind the way you do," he says to Darkcomet. "I'm physically reaching into her mind--following the optic nerve back to the brain. It's limiting in some ways, but in other ways, more powerful."

    He is silent for a moment, and then continues. "Now, I want you to try and attack her mind. Chel, I want you to try and keep him out."
