The lost city

The lost city of Arcia Finsa

Sitting near the table you watch the rain drip down your window. It’s been raining non stop since this morning and you didn’t have anything planned today so you’re watching the rain through your bedroom window instead. Then there’s a knock that pulls you out of your trance, you turn to look at what happened and see a drenched dove sitting on the outside windowsill. The dove notices you attention and coos softly before disappearing into the sky. You wonder at the bird’s strange behavior as you go to rest your head on the table in front of you, but before you do you notice an envelope resting near your head. The envelope is covered in mud and looks as though it’s been through a lot just to get to your home. Out of curiosity you open the letter, carefully opening the swirling dark blue seal depicting a dragon head with deer antlers and a small crown.

Dearest Adventurer, 

This letter in an invitation sent to fourteen other CBers to come join us in the Lost city of Arcia, which has recently been rediscovered. Should you choose to join us there will be adventure abound, monsters to slay, treasure to find, and places to explore that have been untouched for centuries. Should you choose to bring your AEs and Captcha we encourage you to have them be in a group at all times, the City could be dangerous and have traps that could result in a painful death. You will each be assigned classes and abilities to assure your safety on this trip. There may be more than one of each class but not one of them is the same, each class has different subclasses that affect the features, abilities, items, equipment, strengths, and weaknesses of each class. In addition to magic you will be treated by a meal everyday with a camp containing many tents that’s contents run from popcorn machines to sleeping quarters to an armory. Should you choose to join us take this letter, fill out the form on the back and toss the letter into the air outside of your house, we will pick you up in a few days.

We will not be held responsible for any untimely deaths, diseases, illnesses, insanity, or other anomalies that may occur while on this trip. We will try our best to treat the guests who are afflicted though we may not have the means to save them at hand.


Your City Guide, Jay Kirol

After reading the letter you decide to join the adventure, as it is certainly better than staring at raindrops all day. You look through the next sheet that reads; 



CBer, AE, or Captcha: 



Magic, stealth, or strength(please pick only one):

(If you picked Magic please choose one)Pact, connection, voice, heal, forest, or study:

(If you picked Stealth please choose one)Blade, creature, or energy:

(If you picked Strength please choose one) Emotion, sword, or protect: 

Packing list: 


You fill out the form and stand beneath the eave of your house, wondering why you need to throw the paper into the air outside your house. You shrug and toss the letter up into the air, before it has gone all the way up the dove from earlier catches the letter in its claws and disappears in a breeze smelling of citrus as a soft laugh  echos in your ears, it seems vaguely familiar but you can’t remember where you’ve heard it before...

Aw heck yeah, I love adventure stuff but I only ever get to do it at summer camp.

Name: Soren

Pronouns: she/her/hers

CBer, AE, or Captcha: CBer

Appearance: pale skin; five foot five inches; bright, semi-light blue eyes; a pixie cut the same color as my eyes, with bangs that go down and more near my face as they go away from my part (does that make sense? It's kind of just your average pixie);  a Padawan braid (Star Wars, look it up); wears simple t-shirts and jean shorts ith either sandals or flip-flops; dragon wings and tail, same color as hair and eyes.

Personality: I'm an ambivert, but not because I'm a blend of extrovert and introvert, but because I'm an extrovert sometimes and an introvert other times (though more often introverted). I long for adventure and fun, but I never really get it, so I usually end up alone in my room on my Chromebook (where I am right now XP). I'm pretty independant, and I have a weird sense of humor. I'm also a rule follower, and in class, I'm just this sweaty try-hard who knows all of the answers and gets good grades. I'm VERY consious of what my classmates think and I avoid popular people like the plague. I stay with my close friends, and when I'm with them, I laugh a lot and get more daring. I'm extremely tomboyish and refuse to wear dresses and skirts on most occasions. I'm fairly humble and I long to be a good person, so I do service stuff for less fortunate and I never really want physical items for my birthday- now I just want experiences. I really like books and literature, I want to be an author when I grow up and I'm constantly reading a Harry Potter book. I'm sarcastic and a smart aleck, and I'm brave when it comes to things like going down crazy waterslides or spelunking, but not with standing up for myself. I'm also an oddball. I apologize for this wall of text.

Magic, stealth, or strength(please pick only one):Magic (I'm not strong and I'm not stealthy)

(If you picked Magic please choose one)Pact, connection, voice, heal, forest, or study:hmm, voice sounds cool, whatever it is.

Packing list: clothes, toiletries, my Chromebook and earbuds, phone, books, my lightsaber (yellow blade), poket knife, gum, sunscreen and bug spray (I swear, I am a bug magnet), a smol notebook and a Cardinals baseball hat.

Other: I'm vegetarian, though I do eat seafood (I know there's a word for that, but I forgot what it is.)

Name: Sage 

Pronouns: she/her/hers

CBer, AE, or Captcha: AE

Appearance: fair skin; five foot six; hazel eyes; oval-shaped face;  long dirty blonde hair (more blonde than dirty) in a high ponytail; black, semi-cat-eye glasses; wears navy hoodies, acid-washed jeans with holey knees, and worn neon tennis shoes.

Personality: Sage is the part of me that loves adventure, laughing with friends, and making up weird jokes. She adores nonsense and craves fun at all times. She hates being cooped up with her AE sisters and would much rather be swinging from vines in a jungle, climbing rocks, and having fun at amusement parks. She's loud and kind of obnoxious, ecspecially to her sister (who is not coming). She loves weird inside jokes and junk food. Never really serious. Somewhat insane.

Magic, stealth, or strength(please pick only one):Magic!

(If you picked Magic please choose one)Pact, connection, voice, heal, forest, or study:Forest

Packing list: Nintendo Switch, Diritos, basketball, some hairties, and a stick she found on the ground.

Other:  nope!

Pronouns: She/her/hers

CBer, AE or Captcha: CBer

Appearance: Tall and thin, with long hair and nails. Usually wears T-shirts and jeans.

Personality: Soft-spoken, shy, sad, awkward, anxious, and trying not to be any of those things. Polite, archaic speech with a tendency to stammer. Prone to overthinking things. Lonely, but is so awkward that xe often chooses to be alone.
