Scenario:Suframare - Wandering Tutor
Jump to navigation Jump to search
When Vyrn suddenly wishes he could use magic, the tutor Suframare shows up and offers to instruct him. However, Vyrn fails to use even simple magic. With her pride as a tutor on the line, Suframare joins the crew to continue the magic lessons.
One day, (Captain) and company approach Vyrn because he has a lot less to say than usual.
Vyrn: What's that? You wanna know if something's the matter with me?
Katalina: Yes. We're worried that you might be overdoing it.
Vyrn: Nah... I'm not really sick or anything.
Vyrn: It's just that you and (Captain) are real good with swords, and Lyria can call on primal beasts...
Vyrn: Makes me wanna carve out my own little niche. Like, wouldn't it be so cool if I could use magic?
Suframare: Did somebody say magic? Tell me more!
Vyrn: Whoa! Where'd you pop out of outta the blue!
Suframare: Sorry for sneaking up on you! I am Suframare, and I make my living as a wandering tutor!
Katalina: Huh? A wandering tutor?
Suframare: That's right! And I'd be delighted to guide you into the world of mages for a reasonable price!
Vyrn: Oh! That sounds right up my alley! Hurry up and start the lessons!
Townsperson 1: Oho! You're teaching magic to a lizard? If a lizard can do it, then maybe I can too.
Townsperson 2: All right! I want to try too!
Surrounded by interested students, Suframare's lecture begins.
Suframare: Listen up, everyone! I assume you all have your practice staves. Okay... Now follow my example.
Suframare waves her staff as she chants a spell. The townsfolk imitate her.
Townsperson 1: Oh! I had no idea that magic was so easy!
Townsperson 2: Ha-ha! Though it's just basic stuff, it's fun if you can do it!
Suframare: Keep practicing and you'll even be able to do stuff like this one day! Bam!
Vyrn: Whoo, that was awesome! Now you've really got me pumped!
Suframare: Now it's your turn, Captain! And the rest of you! Go for it!
Suframare: Oh! Excellent, Captain! That's very high level magic!
Vyrn: That's my (Captain)! Now I'm gonna give it a whirl!
Vyrn: Huh? Nothing happened...
Vyrn tries several more times, but the result is the same.
Vyrn: Hmm... Doesn't look like this staff's broken...
Suframare: That's right... Maybe this spell is still just a little too hard for you?
Suframare: But everything will be fine. Everyone has to start somewhere. Why don't we begin by trying to cool off our surroundings a little?
Suframare: But don't try to suddenly conjure up a shard of ice. Start by just chilling the tip of the staff.
Vyrn: Hmm... Chill... chill...
Nothing happens whatsoever.
Vyrn: Grrr! See? It's no use!
Suframare: I can't believe that didn't do it... This is the first time this has happened in my career as a private tutor!
Vyrn: No way! You really mean to say that I'm that incompetent?
Suframare: I can't believe it... There goes my self-confidence.
Vyrn: Hold it... I'm the one who feels like giving up here...
Suframare: This makes no sense! This means that the title of my work, A Magic Primer Even a Troll Could Understand, is a lie!
Vyrn: Whoa... What's up with that title?
Suframare: I'm left with only one choice: I'll have to accompany you and keep teaching you until you can use magic!
Vyrn: Say what? You mean to tag along with us?
Suframare: Without the confidence of my students, how can I teach? I'll be ruined if it turns out I was peddling a book of lies! Ruined!
Suframare: And that's the long and short of it... Hey, (Captain)! I'm going with you all!
Suframare: I'm looking forward to our journey together! We're going to keep at it every single day, Vyrn!
Vyrn: That's good and all... but I'll need a break now and then.
Suframare: We'll make a wizard out of you yet! Let's do it, Vyrn!
Suframare: What? That's a terrible thing to say, (Captain)!
Suframare: As an educator, I absolutely cannot allow statements that will reduce the enthusiasm of others!
Suframare: Vyrn, let's do it! Eventually you'll be a topflight wizard!
Vyrn: Grrr! I'll show you just what I'm made of, (Captain)!
Suframare: That's the spirit, Vyrn! First become a topflight wizard...
Suframare: And then reduce (Captain) to cinders or minced meat or whatever and show the captain just how wrong one person can be!
Vyrn: Nah... I don't feel like going that far...
Thus the wandering private tutor Suframare joins the crew.
Tuition will be paid later, but (Captain) is uneasy about just how expensive the tuition for several days' coursework will be.
