Hello, and welcome to Reflection of an Abditory! This is a fantasy role-play studio, where after looking into a mysterious mirror, you are transported to a magical realm called Specula. There is a twist though; you are given a certain fantasy trait that grows and gets more outlandish every year you are trapped in the realm. Plus, this trait goes hand-in-hand with a special power you have to master when you arrive. Have fun, and happy roleplaying!

In the town of Eugenia everyone knows the old legend of the Coffman looking Glass. It's a popular game for the teens to dare one of their own to look into the mirror that's hidden away in the attic of Coffman Manor. Legend has it the mirror will show the true value and soul of the looker, and it rarely sees faces that are pure at heart. It's been a couple of weeks now, since the disappearances started. All of them have been kids who entered the Manor seeking the looking glass. No one knows where they are or how they could've left the Manor, or been /taken/ rather, without having someone see them leave the house. The Manor's gates are now shut and locked, but no one knows who had the key to do so. To the authorities despair, the teens of the town have still managed to enter the Manor's ground to partake in this 'coming of age' ritual of seeking out the mirror.
✰ -- ✰
You turn a corner and see the hidden staircase to the Manor's attic. You cautiously walk up the steps, making sure to avoid the cob webs as the old wood creaks below you. You enter the attic, and look around. Something catches your eye on the windowsill. You walk over, and realize it's the light reflecting off the famed Coffman looking glass. Outside the window you see a group of your friends, laughing and waiting at the gates if the Manor, wanting to see if you go through with the dare. You bite the inside of your cheek and pick up the mirror by the handle. You hold it up to your face, and stare at it, curious as to what your 'true self' looks like. You frown as you realize it's just an old mirror, reflecting nothing but your own face. You set the mirror back down on the windowsill, slightly disappointed nothing happened, but right as you let go it shows a monster like creature staring back at you. Your eyes dart back up to the window to try and signal to your friends, but you only get one last glimpse before a bright light flashes in front of you. You blink and open your eyes, seeing a world you don't know, and feeling strange. Different. You rise from the too-green grass and look to a purple puddle, only to see your reflection now resembles the monster's face instead of your own.
