It was an average day, much like any other. You've been living in the apartment your parents' left you when they moved overseas with your sibling, following the same routine, rather, day in, and day out. Until today. An early morning package is found, addressed to you, inside it is an ancient seeming book, in archaic latin. It has a strange feel, and contains a promise of... Arcane power.
Anyways, things can go from there. High school, college, or working between High school, or after college... Any of those time frames are fine, really. I intend to run multiple versions of this, and see how they each play out, much like Jeramiahh's Dungeons of Doom. The book contains a wide array of increasingly powerful, rather erotic spells. Of course, one could get into quite a bit of trouble if they throw their power around too much, as not everyone in setting disbelieves in magic...
Everyone will be faced, muchly, with the same set of characters, though the personalities, histories, and such, of each of them will be changed for each individual version. The person responsible for giving them the book, the reasons why, and other plot details like that will also vary. There will certainly be pleanty of room for having, ah... Fun abusing one's newfound magical powers, summing succubi, and whatever, but I'm more then willing to permit you to get the book stolen, or get yourself killed. There is, suffice to say, such a thing as a 'bad end.'
In any case, all sorts of... Dark amusements await, I require merely a small background and appearance for your character and things can... Get started.
