The Great Healer
The Great Healer is classic fantasy, set in a meticulously realized world of traveling witches, powerful sorcerers, warring kingdoms and scheming duchies.
“Sorceress Olga, the high council has decided to treat this as a sorcerers challenge since you defeated these two in open battle.
Challenge rules apply, and you have claim to the power and property of the sorceress Fein and the wizard Jacques. Do you wish to claim their power?”
Olga was stunned, by the situation and the question. She looked at Francous and he smiled and nodded.
“The right to claim the power of another is part of the challenge as defined in the rules of the Council. This ritual requires the assistance of two sorcerers of the first tier. Before we assist you with the ritual, you must agree to submit to the authority of the council. Are you willing to submit to the authority of the Council?”
Again, Olga was confused by the question. She had never considered that she had a choice in accepting their authority. Francous saw her confusion and spoke up.
“I’m sorry, I should have explained this to you before bringing you here. The council holds authority over this continent and the two island nations. If you do not wish to live within the rules of the Council, you will be given the option to move to the other continent, but you would not be allowed to remain here.”
“So if I say no, and refuse to leave?”
Faras responded immediately.
“Then we would be forced to either block you from the power or push you out. There are many ways to have a say in the council rules, but you must agree to live within them to stay in the territory we protect.”
“So I really have no choice if I want to see my family.”
“That’s unfortunately correct. To keep the peace, we cannot allow any exceptions.”
Olga looked up at Faras.
“I am unwilling to leave my family, and I need to retain the use of the power to protect myself and those I care about. Therefore, I will submit to the authority of the Council.”
Faras nodded her understanding.
“Very well. Tem as the instrument in this case, will you assist with the claim?”
“Yes, I will assist.”
“Thank you. Olga, you have proven yourself, as described by the Sorcerer Francous, to be a Sorceress of the first tier. Your defeat of Fein, a Sorceress of the first tier and Jacques a Wizard who could have been a first tier sorcerer, is the proof of that. Tem and I will be the confirmation team, but you must make the claim using the spell of claiming which is done as follows.”

About the Author
A dedicated reader and writer, I have always loved a good character. Heroic magicians, iconic warriors, and everyday people who overcome adversity are what I seek in both my reading and my writing. Some of my favorite books are Andre Norton's Witch World series, Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders, and Christopher Stasheff's Warlock series. I like to take characters that are believable and show how they overcome long odds to succeed, or simply adapt to their environment to accomplish happiness for themselves and others.
For me, writing is just like reading, I may know how the story is going to eventually end, but the joy is in the journey that unfolds day by day.
