The Journal of the Mage of Poets Corner


Entry 1 – January 16th, 2012

This Journal belongs to Hobby, the Mage of Poets Corner. I have started this journal to help keep track of my thoughts and activities over the course of the following year. Last year was such a mess that I feel that this could be a good idea.

Entry 14 – January 30th, 2012

I was in Ravenshead today and have heard rumors that a witch in Sherwood Forest is eating children. Although it sounds like an old wives tale and as I’m the only Mage in the area, I feel I should investigate. I have already found out that no children have gone missing. But many claim that the witch lives in a gingerbread house, which the witch uses to lure small children there. I have also heard that she is apparently mugging those that would travel through the forest. It almost sounds like Hansel and Gretal.

Entry 20 – February 5th, 2012

I have been shot. But not by a gun. By an Arrow! Who the hell is firing arrows at people these days. I don’t know that the muggings of travelers has anything to do with the so called witch, but this group of people held certainly mugged me. They knew I was a Mage too. That demanded a piece of Tass. When I refused, a women shot me. With an Arrow! I’m going to go again, this time I will go as a hobby.

Entry 23 – February 8th, 2012

I have found the Witch. I was flying over and spotted the cottage in the middle of the forest. I marked the location on my map. The house does actually appear to be made out of gingerbread. The witch is a Mage called Scree. She is pretty powerful from what I can tell. She says that she is an Artificer and that she doesn’t lie the city. She has lent me some stuff to start setting up a lab, so that was good. She also introduced me to the highwaymen. Turns out that they are Changelings. They helped me get the stuff back to my cottage, here in Poets Corner. They will also grant me safe passage through Sherwood Forest, on one condition. That I bring them one measure of Tass with me.

Entry 99 – April 23rd, 2012

Awesome, got my tickets for the Opening Ceremony today. Got them for Wendy, Kevin, Mike, Trev, Louise and Carol as well. Cannot wait for the games. Go Team GB!

Entry 106 – April 30th, 2012

After a visit to Scree, I have learnt there seems to be some foul deeds a foot. Her mirror that sees the futures shows that I will be dead very soon. The 21st of July in fact. Wishing I didn’t fork out for those tickets now. I might give them to Will.
P.S. This is especially for those that were prophesised to be ready my journal less than an hour after my death. You Pricks!
P.P.S. Now that that is over feel free to take any of my stuff that may help you defeat my enemy. Whomever that may be. It maybe a good idea to go an visit Scree while you are up this way.
Note to self, remove Lunargent so they can get in easily.

Entry 154 – June 16th, 2012

So I read in the paper today that a young girl was killed at Stonehenge. Definitely Occult. As much as it isn’t in my territory, I feel that need to go check it out. Maybe it can stop my own demise.

Entry 156 – June 18th, 2012

I have returned from Stonehenge. Most interesting. It would appear that the girl was summoned by a PVC pipe. Some cheap arse enchantment. The girl would appear to be a Werewolf. There was also something else that seemed to take on her essence. I have come to believe that this thing will be what kills me.

Entry 169 – July 2nd, 2012

Nineteen days and counting. I heard of another murder at the Merry Maidens. I went and checked it out. Similar sort of thing except that this time it was a Promethean. I didn’t even know there were Prometheans in England. And the spirit, it calls itself Legion.

Entry 175 – July 8th, 2012

Thirteen days left on this Earth. Another murder, this time at Hilly Fields. I am heading down to London tonight. While I’m there I must catch up with Lord Dylan and find out what the High Council knows about this Legion Character. Might also be a good idea to check out the Mysterium’s Library.

Entry 176 – July 9th, 2012

Twelve more to go. This time it was a geist. I was as a Hobby when I saw the stone circle in London. A group of Geists came to investigate. I saw one of them with the PVC pipe. The one that was used to summon a geist. I took my chance and swooped down, clutching the pipe in my talons and flying north as fast as I could. As I flew over London, I saw an explosion in an apartment building. Three Mages chased a Werewolf, but it got away.
I headed to catch up with Lord Dylan. The High Council is not investigating Legion, But he told me that a London Cabal was also investigating this. The Knights Errant. I wanted to meet up with them, but they were having some issues at the moment. Something to do with the explosion i saw.

Entry 177 – July 10th, 2012

Eleven and counting. I have headed to the Mysterium’s vaults. Is it wrong to promise favours when you know that you will be dead in a fortnight? Anyway I have access. If I am going to find out anything about Legion, it will be here.

Entry 180 – July 13th, 2012

Eureka! Oh, and eight days to go. I found him. Legion in some ancient manuscripts. Apparently this spirit can absorb all living creatures. He is fond of the supernatural. It makes me wonder why he hasn’t targeted the Vampires yet. I think I will be the Mage. Makes sense. Anyway, Legion has a ban! I can use this. Once he is destroyed, to stop him manefesting again, his ashes need to be swept up and put in a box measuring no bigger than a half cubit a side, made entirely of Mongolian Pine. Can you belive somebody in London was selling one on eBay? A Woman called Stacey Anderson is going to sell it to me on Sunday.

Entry 182 – July 15th, 2012

Six days. When I get back to Poets Corner with the ban of Legion. Will is at my door. He tells me that his sister has disappeared. I fear the worst. I get a feeling that I should head to the Nine Ladies. I get there with all haste. I manage to stop one of the cultist. In the scuffle I mananged to get the PVC pipe that teleports Changelings. I have two now. I think I’ll head in and see Scree.

Entry 184 – July 17th, 2012

Four days left, life is too short. I have found out from Scree that the PVC pipes can be destroyed, I need to get all six. I have only heard of four so far. I feel the one for the Mage will be used soon. There must be another for Vampires.

Entry 187 – July 20th, 2012

Only one day left. The sun sets on my life. I shall know but one more sunrise. I have sent my faithful friend Fully to the Mages of the Knights Errant. They will be the only ones that can finish this. He shall get there in the morning.

Entry 188 – July 21st, 2012

Last day on Earth. I have prepared to meet my maker. But I’m not going wihtout a fight. I have a couple of aerosols and a grenade. The Knights Errant should be on its way.
P.S. Avenge Me!
