The Watercolor Tribe uses this hymn to worship the many oases of the Southern Basin, which they revere as burial grounds of gods. It functions as both a prayer and a navigation aid, as the lyrics indicate the optimal travel route for reaching the oases without being deceived by mirages.
Hymn of the Cedar-Tree Shrine: Instant, Spell, Recharge 3 after effect ends: Massively increases the target's resistance to all forms of damage for a very brief period. On success, the target will only take 1 Hit of damage from each applicable source of damage that hits them. This lasts for 2 turns, or 3 on a critical hit.
The Country of Red Thunder has been divided for much of its long and fraught history, and many of the civil wars and persecutions have been the result of sectarian tensions between the Country's many religious groups. The Country is dominated by highly animistic cults collectively referred to as 'Turba', with many region-specific variants. Their differences are small, consisting of different names for sacred mountains and lakes, but their sacred territories often overlap, creating conflict with other regions' variants of Turba. This Hymn is the story of one such conflict, when a group of pilgrims seeking ablution for past sins were hunted down by zealots of a rival sect, and took refuge in the hollow of an ancient cedar tree. A miracle took place, and the bloodthirsty zealots could not set hoof in the hollow to attack the pilgrims without being burned by a supernatural fire. When the zealots finally fled in fear of the gods, the pilgrims turned the hollow into a shrine.
The Scroll of Seneh, the Wildfire Aegis: Automatic: Summons a floating shield as a minion with 20 HP. It can be assigned to any target, and will take all damage for them until it is defeated. After it has been defeated, it has a Recharge of 3 before it can be summoned again. The minion has access to the following skills:
- Brushfire: Recharge 2; Single target fire element magic attack, +1 to rolls, can Cleave.
- Hunker Down: Automatic, Recharge 3; The shield braces itself with fire, halving all damage it takes for the round; any damage it takes is inflicted upon all enemies that attacked it as a fire element attack.
- Hakarmell: Automatic: Upon losing all Hits, the shield rolls for an explosion of fire-element damage, targeting all enemies. Always succeeds, roll determines intensity.
This Songspinning spell conjures a semiautonomous, fire-imbued shield, a servitor linked to the will of the user. When fighting against extreme odds, as the Sons of God did, one must develop ingenious uses for one's limited resources. Exploding shields are just one example of such weapons the Sons developed for this purpose.

Pryce's body turns as brilliant as the sun, his robe extending off his body into rays of light, and a crown of flame appearing overhead.

Encore!: 1 spark, passive; The crowd demands more! Spend one spark to use a second standard action this turn.
Sphinx Illusion: 3 sparks, automatic, spell; Warp the senses to change what your audience sees. Pick two targets in combat, swapping their image that all believe is true, causing all actions targeting one to now redirect to the other.
Blind Shuffle: 1 spark, spell, ranged; Conjure a deck of cards to flourish before your foes. Throw a card at a target, with the face value equaling the unmodified roll. Roll an additional 1d4 on use to determine the suit (1 = Heart, 2 = Spade, 3 = Club, 4 = Diamond). On a natural Crit, roll another 1d4 to determine if it is a face card (1 = 10, 2 = Jack, 3 = Queen, 4 = King), with face cards granting an additional effect. Each card is unique and can only be used once until the deck is shuffled. If you roll a card a second time, the skill is re-rolled.
- Heart: Counterattack damage and Crit Fails, if any, deal 2 less hits.
- Spade: Deals double damage on succes.
- Club: Deals it's damage to all enemies near Pryce.

- King: Force - Pick the exact next card Blind Shuffle throws, value and suit, while making the next use automatic too.
Magic Box: 3 sparks, spell; Form a 3-section box around a target (up to the size of an adult buffalo), ready to be split. Each box covers a different part of the target: Their head, their torso, and their limbs. Pryce can then remove one of the boxes from the rest, separating that portion of their body (the removed part remains alive and does not bleed). If their head is removed, all of the target's actions target randomly until reattached. If their limbs are removed, they cannot more or make non-spell skills until reattached. Unless the target has Telekinesis, it is DC7 to reattach their own parts, otherwise they need somepony else to reattach them. For 1 additional spark, Pryce can remove the torso box, splitting the target into pieces and rendering them unable to make any actions at all until somepony else pieces them back together.
Final Act: 5 sparks, instant automatic; Pour all your magic into one final grand stand, empowering your other action this turn (Pryce can only make one other action this turn when using Final Act). Your allies can aid you in this action, sacrificing their own to give a +2 bonus to it. If the action would give an effect or bonus to Pryce, it is given to all allies aiding Pryce in the Final Act. This action cannot Crit Fail if 2 or more allies assist you.

Weapons and Special Equipment
Serpentskin Cloak: While worn, the Cloak stores half of all damage and negative effects that the user suffers while worn, and the wearer suffers the other half of all damage and negative effects they would normally receive while worn. As an Instant action, the wearer can roll to inflict ALL stored damage and negative effects onto another target by touching the hem of the cloak to that target. This causes the Cloak to lose all stored damage and negative effects on success, but the Cloak does NOT lose the stored effects on failure, including critical failure.
A cloak originating in the Onuma region of Circadia. Many swamplanders resisted the efforts of the Dream Crown to integrate them into their dominion, fighting back against Circadia's armies using guerilla tactics and special swamp magic to deter their imperial troops. One such group of these dissident swamplanders were the Serpentskins, a group approximating a rough equivalent of a knightly order for the tribal swamplanders. These Serpentskins formed magic Bounds with trained snakes, undergoing special magic ceremonies that gave their bodies the properties of those snakes, like venomous fangs and heightened ability to sneak. Serpentskins would also collect the shed skin of colossal serpents, fashioning armor and weapons from them that could be enchanted with extremely potent magic.
Conjures a simple skeleton butler who can execute a number of orders and is skilled in all the things a butler is skilled in.

Guarded: Reduces critical failure damage by half.
Amulet of the Familiar
A charm meant to hold a picture of one's chosen Familiar. When worn, if the summoner and the Familiar perform the same action or attack the same target, they both get +2 to that action for that round only. Recharge 3.

Deals elemental ice damage, in addition to creating a barrier of solid ice that can be used to block off areas. Ice wall is DC 6 to climb around if it does not reach to a ceiling, and DC 8 to break through. This can be used out of combat to freeze objects and create wintery conditions out of combat.

Character Info: [Birthday: Lǜdia, 11th of Dawn Reviere]
Pryce was raised in an orphanage, never knowing who his birth parents were. But, he found his true family at the age of 5. One day, a circus was in town and the caretakers at the orphanage brought all the kids to have a nice day of festivities. Pryce was in awe at the show, the tricks and performances enrapturing the young colt. The next day the only thing you could see at the orphanage were all the kids talking bout the show. Pryce, being so enthralled by the show, tried to re-perform it himself to the entertainment of the others. His attempts were as expected a child's to go, not quite pulling off the card tricks or illusion or other such amazement he saw, but everypony enjoyed it just the same. It was at this time too the ringlead of the circus came to visit after hearing the orphanage made a trip to his show. The caretakers were about to lead him outside and introduce him, but they stopped as they saw young Pryce trying to mimic him. Then came the grand finale, the fireworks display. Pryce took a deep breath, and focused his magic as hard as he could as the other kids watched in suspense. A few sparks and embers popped off, which still gained some applause. The caretakers gave their doting words of support from their watch at a distance, commenting the Pryce was always a determined little colt whenever something new came around to try it out. Just as they made their steps outside, a big bolt then fired off into the sky from Pryce's horn, bursting in a shower of sparkles as he managed to make a firework! The sudden bang scared the living daylights out of the caretakers and all the kids cheered and applauded. Pryce himself was ecstatic at pulling it off. Not just that, but as the excitement from the firework wore off, they all pointed out that his cutiemark appeared on his flank! This only cause more elation, and distress for the caretakers as they tried to get everypony calm for their new guest. The ringleader spoke to all the children, telling them all about the importance of a smile and sharing it, this being the reason he travels around himself, and also did a few more tricks at their behest. The kids were left to chatter about their private show, and all surround Pryce over his new cutiemark, everypony wondering which trick it was for. A few minutes later, Pryce was called inside. At first he thought he was in trouble for the loud explosion, but it was good news to his surprise. The ringleader, seeing Pryce's eagerness to not only try to do the show again for the others but succeed with a grand finish (with both the firework and his cutiemark), had adopted him! Pryce didn't know what to think, not only was he going to have a family, but a family he was so awestruck with! He gave his heartfelt goodbyes to the other orphans and set off with his new dad to meet his new family.
When they came back to the circus, Pryce was introduced and their excitement blew his out of the water! His new siblings were quick to give him a group hug and start riddling him with questions. First was the youngest right above him, his new brother Curved Cross, a unicorn who was acrobat in the show. Above him was his sister, Feather Flourish, who was a pegasus who did all kinds of card and sleight-of-hand tricks. Then the oldest, Clear Head, an earth pony who did mind reading tricks and even hypnotized a pony for an act! Pryce also learned they were all adopted too, all of them sharing in the same cheer and happiness bringing that their parents did. All three of them were impressed at Pryce's story, hearing that he just got a cutiemark only a few hours earlier and trying out their same tricks too. Stepping in to give the newcomer some space, his parents calmed everypony so they could properly show Pryce around. His mom, Joyous Sight, a unicorn illusionist, and his dad, Hat Trick, also a unicorn, explained how they traveled all over the country to do their show. They never stayed in one place too long, but they always left leaving the folk they met with a smile. And now with Pryce a part of them, they'd have to hold one of their biggest shows ever as a welcome.
Pryce's life was like an adventure after that. For a while he watched on from backstage during the shows, trying to figure out his own little tricks to do. His parents said anything he wanted to do would be welcome, and his siblings even helped show him some of their own acts, but he was determined to find his own specialty. A night finally came a few months in when he felt ready to do his own show. He was given a grand introduction, and was well received as the crowd saw a little kid come onstage, but at that moment stage fright hit him hard. He panicked, he forgot everything he had planned. In that moment, he did the first thing that came to mind. He fired off a small firework, but this time it had a shape of one of the front row ponies. It was applauded, and the pony even liked it! Pryce tried again, this time making a small glowing figure of another pony, and then even starting making things the crowd shouted out! He found his specialty, he was great at conjuration!
Their shows went on to only be better and better, always being a hit. But when Pryce reached his preteen years, another calling came to him. They were stopped at a small town, and while they were setting up Pryce ran out to do the grocery shopping. When he was at the market, he was a group of knights there telling stories of their exploits to the villagers. Pryce was pulled in, hearing how they saved ponies from all over, protected the kingdom and country from all kinds of beasts and nastiness. An ideal formed in his head, a protector that could not only make ponies happy but make sure that smile would never have to leave their face! This knight talk became one of the dominant topics for him, enraptured at his idea. And it was obvious to his family too. When his 12th birthday came around, they surprised him with an offer. If he really wanted to, they planned to make a trip near Hearthome where Pryce could join the Church to begin training as a knight. He couldn't find enough words, or enough times, to thank them for an opportunity like that. When they reached their stop and it was the day before Pryce would head up to try to join, they gave him two gifts. A white robe, slightly over-sized to last him as long as possible, plain and blank for Pryce to design, the same as how he found his own spot in the shows. And a bracelet, one they all saved up the bits for to purchase for him to keep a little flourish for his magic and to remember them by. Again he found himself speechless, thanking them deeply.
When it came time, Pryce managed to be accepted in as a squire for the Church. His magic being a great boon in this decision, his conjuration and practice in show making it quick and versatile. And so Pryce began his new life, training to be a defender of all ponies, keeping the same ideal he had as a child. An unfortunate case came from his family's travelling lifestyle, they were not able to see each other often, but letters were sent very frequently. And once Pryce reached the point where he could venture out, he did his best to line up his routes to his family's. This didn't work too often, but those moments it did were great. And eventually, Pryce finally became a full Knight. With his new title and position, Pryce was ready to finally head and begin his new life and new path.
