You find yourself at a mysterious stream. Floating down it are beautiful eggs, unlike any you've ever seen or heard of, decorated with odd scales and extraordinary colors. Some are already hatching, and you can see hints of what they might become. The water glows, almost beckoning you forward, and the trees seem to lean inward, as if by some enchantment. You have made an amazing discovery, and wish you could take an egg or two. These rare eggs can be raised into adults, if nurtured and raised well. If grown to adulthood, they can become beautiful and potent allies for any magi.
Magi are magic wielders, students and teachers from all corners of the world, who spend their time traveling to distant lands, learning and experimenting in all forms of sorcery. Rare eggs help greatly in their travel, both in wizard wars and as steeds. Will you join the ranks of these wizards, and take on the responsibility and adventure these creatures promise to bring? Choose your own egg, and begin the journey.
Simply click one to take it as your own. Don't see anything you want? The eggs you see are automatically updated faster than you can refresh! Eggs that are no longer available will be instantly replaced with new ones. Can't seem to find the egg you're looking for? Try the shops.
You follow the flowing crowd into the great hall, shaking your head at the sight of yet another student proclaiming her love to a pair of curtains. A woman in healer's blue takes her by the arm, steering her away toward the infirmary, and you hear the student's exclamations of "its okay, I love you too, person I just met!"
In the great hall, Master Belmos stands next to a man in frayed green robes, who you barely remember from your help perfecting his breeding potion. A velox sits on his shoulder.
"Greetings, everyone," the man says. "My name is Kaidan Featherstone, and I'm a researcher here at the Keep. I'm sure you've noticed some...weirdness...with the latest batch of drinks at Remy's."
Murmurs of agreement echo around the room.
"I didn't mean for this to happen!" he says, waving his hands. "I just wanted to create a drink that would help people relax and feel close to each other during the coldest, darkest months of the year. It's a simple enough potion. But one of the ingredients is the brahmi plant, and there was a shortage this year, so I asked Talyn to send me some if he found any on his travels. Well, apparently wherever he found them, they grow to be a lot more potent than the ones you find around here." Kaidan laughs nervously. "And that's why your fellow magi are acting so...odd."
A few people laugh, but some of the older magi in the back of the room just roll their eyes.
"Students," Master Belmos says, the titters dying down. "The effects of Kaidan's potion are potent, and we need some help with some individuals who cannot shake it off the way others can. Potions are one thing, but there is also magic in incantations. If anyone wishes to help with a spell to counteract the effects of this potion, please do so."
Help counter Kaidan's magic by coming up with an anti-love poem.
