Malt, Toymaker

By:

When one thinks of a magician they typically conjure up images of fireballs and lightening darting from fingertips to thwart monsters and evil alike. What about the magic that children see? In their toys and the world around them? Where does it come from?

In this world, that question can be answered; Malt. Now in his middle years and seen as an oddity among magic users, he travels in a caravan hauled by his camel, in which his workshop and tools are kept and he spends his time on an evening crafting each unique toy and then imbuing it with the magic of life, animating them with the purpose of bringing happiness and peace to the children of a world that sometimes offers too little of both.

In his advancing years, his mission to see smiles spurs him on. Hoping for a peaceful future.

Notes

This is an extract from a story that began life as an RP between my partner and I. I hope to upload more of it in the future, if people would like to read about it.

I'm aware that it is a short entry to the Citadel and as such is listed under the 100 Word Challenge freetext. As I'm slowly getting back into writing, I hope to make longer and more in depth submissions.

Like you already commented, it is quite short. I'd love to see this fleshed out. That being said, anytime I see something that is not the norm that really gets my brain going in a new and different direction is something I love. So thanks for the outside-the-box-approach to magic! I do believe my players will be running into Malt in the near future... :)

The Nomin gypsies have a fiddling competition every year, known as the Danse de Velose. Beaters hit out the rhythm on taut drums and the competitors start to play, slowly at first. Youngsters can compete, but are soon pulled away by worried mothers, before the competition becomes too dangerous. After two hours the haunting tune has become dazzlingly fast. You can resign at any time, but the moment you make a mistake you receive an arrow through the neck. Strings may snap, but the players must play on. The whole affair never lasts much longer than three hours, and the last fiddler playing is crowned king of the gypsies.
