=> Well the glove seems to have size changing properties. Take the glove off. See what happens. Put it back on. See what happens. Maybe find an object that the glove can slip onto, and see what happens.

You would love to, but sadly, it now seems that the glove is firmly stuck to your hand, you try to pull it off but it just won't come off, no matter how strong you pull it. The glove seems to have glued itself to your hand and it won't be leaving anytime soon. While you're trying to pull it off, however, you seem to trigger something on the glove, next thing you know, it starts shining brightly...
Well...This is interesting...After shining for a few moments, your gem starts spawning big bright floating red letters. They hover around your hand anxiously, their mystical and mysterious nature keeping full grasp of your attention. You quickly realize that you don't have a whole alphabet in here...Glancing around, you can see the letters "A","C","E","G","H","I","L","N","P","R","S" and "T", in order. They follow your gloved arm diligently, wherever you may point it at. However, when you use your other hand to touch the letters, you find that you can drag them around and re-arrange them as you please. Whenever you move one of the letters, your glove spawns a copy of it, as if to allow you to make words with repeating letters.
RRR=> See if you can turn this feature off before you try anything fancy like write a word. Don't want to cause a spell that could destroy the orphanage afterall.
Yup. No problem. All you need to do is spin around that ring at the glove's wrist and it'll make the letters pop up or disappear. Good, that way you won't risk having to strut around looking like a walking alphabet soup or something.
MSPA=> Try to spell "ESCAPE" or "HELP""
Let's go with "HELP" first...As soon as you finish writing the word up, the letters start shining a bit brighter and also start twitching and shaking, they slowly start closing in to each other.
The words all converge into a single point and fuse themselves, transforming into a floating ball of red light. After a few moments, the shape of eyes and a mouth slowly become apparent in this small sphere.
???: 'Sup Juno: And you would be...? ???: My name's whatever you want to call me, I suppose. Anyways, i'mma keep this short. I'm a wisp, i'm here to help you learn how to use your magicaestus. Juno: So...This glove is a magicaestus...? ???: No, it's just a pretty glove that has absolutely nothing to do with what you just did, which totally was not magic. Juno: Really? ???: No. Juno: . . . ???: Anyways, i'm here to answer your questions, so shoot. Juno:So...You can tell me anything about this glove? ???: Well, no. If you want to get technical, i'm a physical manifestation of all the basic knowledge necessary for you to get started as a spellcaster. So my knowledge is restricted to just that, the basics, you'll have to figure out the rest by yourself. Juno: ...Great...

MSPA=>>"Well then, what's the point of you existing if you only know what I already know?" RRR=> "So why only twelve letters?" you ask. MSPA=>See if the glove will give you a choice of spellcaster classes.
Juno: Okay, so I have a few questions to start off. Wisp: Yeah, that's what i'm here for, after all. Juno: Yeah, about that...What's the point of you existing if you only know what I already know? Wisp: Girl, you don't know shit. Only way you'd know anything would be if someone nearby could teach you. I can sense nearby magical presences, and I sense that there ain't another spellcaster in here for at least quite a few kilometers. Juno: That's to be expected, I suppose...Lunars are kind of extinct after al- Wait, what do you mean by that? Wisp: What do you mean what do I mean? And what's that talk about lunars being extinct...? I can sense at least...6 right from where we are...They are quite far away though... Juno: So i'm not the only one...Huh, guess my species is more resilent than I expected. Maybe... Wisp: Next question, then. Juno: Oh, erm...Right! Why only twelve letters? How do I get the whole alphabet? Wisp: Because you're a newbie, duh. You didn't expect to get all the power right away, did you? Juno: Well, I guess not...? I mean, I didn't even expect i'd be getting this thing today... Wisp: Are you that daft? Don't all lunars get their magicaestus at their 13th birthday? It is your 13th birthday today, isn't it? Juno: Well, yeah but- Wisp: Anyways, if you want to get more letters, you'll need to get more magical energy. There's three ways to go about doing that, you can either go to Celeraska, which is always brimming with that stuff, you can try to channel the energy to yourself during a full moon or you can drain that energy from other lunars, you'll kinda have to kill them for that though, so I'd advise you against it. Juno: ...Right...Are there any sort of...Classes? For spellcasting, I mean? Wisp: Interesting question, but no, not really. What you DO have though, is, currently at least, three ways of using any kind of word that you write. You can throw, summon or embed them. The help word that you used to call me can only be used as a summon, but other words can use any of those other prefixes. Throwing is for transforming that word into a projectile, it's mostly used for throwing offensive spells, as i'm sure you guessed by now. Summon is to create a copy of the object that words represents at your location, keep in mind though, this only works for objects and things, you can't summon people. Juno: Didn't I summon you though? Wisp: Weren't you paying attention? I'm a physical embodiement of knowledge, so, technically, i'm a "thing". Anyways, last, but not least is embedding. Embedding allows you to give properties of the word you used to another object or person. So, if you spell the word "FAST" and embed to yourself, you'll start moving a lot quicker, by example. Juno: Can I embed things I summoned myself? Wisp: Yeah, sure. You can embed pretty much anything, really.

=> Embed yourself with the word SILENT. See if it dampens the sound of your footsteps and other movements. Or maybe it will just turn you mute. Well in the event that of the former, you could use that to try and sneek out again.
MSPA=>Try summoning a RAT, cause that is your thing. Then embed the word HIPSTER on the rat to add personality to it.
Juno: This is the best thing ever. Wisp: This is stupid. Juno: I'm gonna call him Sebastian. Wisp: For fuck's sake... Juno: You know, I don't appreciate your language, especially in front of poor little Sebastian. Wisp: I want to go back into my glove now, please... Juno: No, you're sticking around in case I have more questions later. Wisp: I hate my existence.
RRR=> Embed yourself with the word SILENT. See if it dampens the sound of your footsteps and other movements. Or maybe it will just turn you mute. Well in the event that of the former, you could use that to try and sneek out again.
You would love to try that out, sadly, before you attempt to do so, you need to figure out a way to unlock this door. There is a lock both on the inside and the outside, though yours is open, it seems that Kaila has locked the other side...You'll need to figure out a way to get the door out of the way.
Wisp: Just blast the damn thing open, you're a Lunar for the moon's sake. Juno: That wouldn't be really nice or discreet now, would it? What do you think, Sebastian? Sebastian: Squeek. Juno: Oh, so you think you could unlock the door on the other side if I sent you through? That's also a plan, Sebs! Wisp: You and I both know he didn't say any of that, he just freaking squeaked, he's a rat, he can't talk. Juno: Hmm...So many options...What to do...What to do...? Wisp: You can't be serious. Please tell me you're not seriously considering using the rat.
RRR=>Can you use a letter twice? Imbue Sebastion with 'SPEECH', then you can discuss plans have a wisecracking sidekick + => The mouse may still not have the cognitive capacity to talk despite having the ability to speak. Embed it with INTELLIGENCE.
Juno: All right! Hey! Hey! Sebastian! Can you hear me? Did it work? Sebastian: That was not a pleasant experience, my tassel. I'd very much appreciate if you never did anything like that again. Wisp: Great, congratulations, now you have your very own talking pest to follow you around, I hope you're happy. Sebastian: Man, you're such a shitter. Stop picking on the tassel, ain't you supposed to be helping her and all that? You're really fin, y'know that? Wisp: I'm getting told off by a talking rat who's using weird slang, what has this world come to. Sebastian: I don't really like the way you talk about me either, y'know, i'm right here, stop acting like i'm not here, ignoring what you don't like ain't gonna make it fade away, you know. Wisp: I swear if I had hands I would strangle both of you. Juno: Well, it's nice to see you two are getting along, but we should probably get moving now, no? I think I know how to open this door...
MSPA=> Try embedding the door with AGAPE.
With one more spell cast, you write up the word AGAPE and embed it to the door, as soon as you do, you hear the lock opening itself up on the other side and, before long, the door itself swings open and seemingly glues to the wall. It seems that as long as that word is embedded in there, it'll be impossible to even attempt to close the door.
Juno: All right! Juno Menae, master escape artist, strikes again! Sebastian: Dang, that was deck. Juno: I have no idea what that means, but thank you anyways. Wisp: At least now hopefully we can get out of here and do something productive.
RRR=> Hey remember that idea of embedding yourself with SILENT and trying to sneak out of here?
The author would firstly and foremost like to apologize for having to deliver this page in this manner, but time constraints have demanded such. Plus, he wants to try something new, it'll be back to normal by the next update. Anyways, back to the topic at hand.
You embed yourself with the word silent and now you quickly realize that you not only made yourself mute, you also just stopped emitting any sort of sound. It's almost freaky, really. Neither your footsteps, your breathing or even your heart beat is making any sound. Being completely silent won't be enough to pass through this next room though...It seems Kaila has gathered up all the orphanage children and, the tables and snacks being ready and such, is trying to calm the children down before she goes up to call you.
Wisp: I assume you're going to try to sneak past them as well? Juno: . . . Wisp: Oh, right, silent. Hah, you know, I actually like you better this way, I don't have to deal with your snarky comments. Juno: :( Wisp: Oh, just so you know, you can spin the ring on your glove the other way around to create a ball of magic that will remove whatever embeds you made. Juno: ;) Wisp: You're welcome. Sebastian: Hold up. What would happen if I was hit with that then? Wisp: I don't have to answer you. Sebastian: Rude. Juno: >:( Wisp: -sigh- You'd go back to being a normal rat. Sebastian: Well, she better be darn careful with that thing 'round me then, being able to talk is kind of nice. Juno: ^.^;;
MSPA => You know, if you reallywant to sneak out, TRANSPARENT works.
Brilliant idea. You assign the words into order and then embed them on yourself. Within moments, your skin and clothes all start allowing light to go right through them, making you look almost as if you're made of glass. You're not exactly invisible per say yet, but this definetly will be a big help in sneaking around and whatnot.
MSPA => I whole heartedly support the Transparent idea!
If it works, can we go check out the chest first? If not, dash across! You don't make any sound anyway.
You waltz over to the chest and open it up, inside you find a bunch of toy weapons.
Wisp: ...Wh-...Why are you lifting those things up like that? Stop it! Anyways...Listen, even if they're not real weapons, you might want to stick with at least one of those. In the hands of a creative lunar, even a stick can become a deadly weapon.
RRR => Well... this is the last time you'll see your fellow orphans. And some snacks for the road might be nice. Why are we planning on immediately leaving again?
And some snacks for the road might be nice.
some snacks for the road
This is too much of an opportunity to pass up. Kaila would never allow you to do this while she's around, but since you're basically invisible and unhearable, you mozey your way over to the table and start gulfing down snacks like there's no tommorow.
Wisp: You're going to throw up if you keep that up...
