De Coroy,
  Add a trigger for the 14th. Power specific. Large.  
C
 
Of course, Alina was not able to avoid looking at the letter, seeing how prominently displayed it was on de Coroy's desk. That made her pause for a second, yet the dry form of address, the coded message, and that C as a signature... Surely not standing for Cenlys? The Dark Lord, truly?   De Coroy followed her look. "Oh, that. Just a little extra crafting order I've received from an important client." He made no move to hide it and was not even pretending to be bothered by it.   She raised a dubious eyebrow. "Adding a complex trigger to an artefact after its crafting seems a little difficult in such a short time." And this had to mean a mechanism triggered by a specific power level. Large, however... Something related to the unknown artefact?   De Coroy laughed. "Yes, he likes to send me challenges to test me. It's always fun to see what he's going to ask out of me next."   Definitely the Dark Lord. And with de Coroy being so direct about it—he was finally trusting her despite the differences in their ranks! Being surrounded by disgustingly Light mages all day long had one advantage at least...   "But with the report the Lady Director has just asked of you, this is going to be a bit of a tight deadline." She paused before adding with the same casual nonchalance, "I have some experience with complex trigger mechanisms . If using all resources at your disposal is within the rules, I would be happy to assist you."   Judging by his lazy smile, this had been just what he had been angling for. Alina would have been suspicious if de Coroy had not already taken upon himself to mentor her in smaller ways. This was perfect. Finally an in directly with the Dark Lord! If everything continued as smoothly, she would have him amazed about her skills and fully seduced in no time.

Oooooo. I somehow don't think it is going to be as simple as Alina thinks, lol.

I love the little snippet of story. And it's interesting to see Light mages working with the Dark Lord, though I can't say surprising...

Thanks :D   The Light mages comment in the snippet might have been a bit confusing without all the background: Alina and de Coroy are both Dark mages and hiding that fact since anything Dark is now illegal. Their colleagues are all Light mages and so they both come together to commiserate on their stupidity XD Here Alina was saying that one good thing came from this fact: this has brought her and de Coroy closer together, something that would not have occurred in other circumstances since he has a more important status than her. I'll add a tooltip to make this clearer :D
