Welcome to Academy City. The time is night, the weather is magical and the date is August 4.You are Kyril Torikov, ‘Level 2’ Telekinetic Child Error and you are currently blind. No more than a minute after you stepped in to the ‘crucible’ that Teacher had set up you lost your sight. He had reassured you that it was only temporary and recommended that you sit down. You nearly landed too hard on your arse. It was the next part that really creeped you out. Minor pinpricks travelled up and down your limbs. Like an electrical signal it pulsated and once it seemingly found something the sensation crossed the threshold in to pain. Tracing a path up to your eyes you felt as if a drop of scalding water ran along its travels.The sensation gathered itself in to your eyes and would repeat itself several times. Eventually the torturous procedure came to an end and you regained your sight. Your body felt like it was burning though as you looked around the sensation started to fade. Blinking stung your eyes too but you were doing reflexively, as if you needed to moisten them. Teacher approached slowly and stared in to your eyes. As he did, you notice how he seemed to be outlined in green as if he was bathed in an aura.“Well looks like it worked,” Teacher smiled and backed off>Ask him what’s next>Ask him about your eyes
The rules are pic related.For more information see: http://padlet.com/wall/acsquareq
>>31140532>Ask him what’s next
>>31140532>Ask him about your eyesAlso see if we have a colored outline too
>>31140770Seconding this, also "Is this going to be permanent?
>>31140770There should be a fountain nearby right? We can check there.
Wondering about whether you yourself have an aura or not, you give your whole body a once over. There is no outline on your body at all.“So what am I seeing here?” you ask him.“Short answer, magic,” he replies, “Would you like the long and boring explanation as well?”You nod.“Very well. Lao Tzu’s original eight trigram crucible was actually supposed to melt and distil the Monkey King back down to a Pill of Longevity. Basically an alchemist’s wet dream. Like I said, didn’t work. Anyway, I originally thought it was a spell but it’s actually an alchemical process. What I did is take some redundant and useless nerve endings, transferred them to your eyes and changed them to be a different kind of receptor. They react to what most magicians call mana. Your brain interprets said signals sent from these receptors as colours. What do you see me in?”“Green.”“Strange, but then I suppose most spells would look green to you,” he mutters, “Anyway, the important thing is that vampires should show up in red. It’ll be very obvious.”“Alright so what’s next on your agenda?”“Ideally, we’d go vampire hunting,” he answers, “But since your eyes are untested, I’d say we patrol around a bit. The physician side of me would recommend that you get some sleep so that your eyes and brain can adjust to your new condition. Either way it’s your choice.”>Let’s find vampires>Let’s call it a day
>>31141318>>Let’s call it a day
>>31141318>Let’s find vampiresIt would be cool if we can make this permanent.
>>31141318>Let’s call it a day"This thing you did to me is it permanent, and what do you mean by useless nerve endings?"
>>31141318>Let’s find vampires
>>31141318>>Let’s find vampiresBut ask the questions first.
>>31141318>Let’s find vampiresIs this seeing mana thing going to be permanent?Are we going to lose feeling somewhere on our body?
If we're gonna go vampire hunting we should ask him wether we should bring shit like garlic or holy water.
“You came to find your wife,” you got up and dusted yourself off, “Might as well get started now that we can.”“Right on,” Teacher agreed.“Oh and before I forget this thing is this thing permanent or what?”“It is. When we’re done I can remove it for you if you want.”Nodding the both of you set off from the park. Honestly, you had no idea where to start but Teacher seemed to so he took the lead. He led you to one of the alleyways and up a fire escape ladder. Once you were on a rooftop, he had you cast your gaze over everything. Some of the buildings blocked line of sight but you were able to make out two yellow silhouettes. It looked like they were heading your way. Farther away you made out several red silhouettes to the west. You’re not sure you could have spotted them if they weren’t hopping on roof tops.“The yellow group is probably your magician friends, though I’m not too sure,” Teacher answers after pondering what you told him, “The red ones are to the west you say? I guess that narrows my search down somewhat.”Teacher’s guess turns out to be right as Sivan and Kaoru leapt up and landed on your roof top shortly after.“Torikov-san, please step away from that man,” Kaoru starts.You note that they were both armed. Kaoru has her dagger out and Sivan’s bardiche was heft menacingly.“You have interesting friends kid,” Teacher notes dryly, “Night’s still young.”He holds out his hand for you.>Do as Kaoru says>Ask a question>Go with Teacher
>>31142255>Ask a question"Whoa easy whats going on?"
>>31142255>Go with TeacherExplain that we're trying to help him find his wife. Also did we not remove the tracking spell? I can't think of another reason why the two came so fast.
>>31142314No you did not remove the tracking spell.
>>31142255>Ask a question"and we can't just talk this over like the last time why?"
>>31142255>Ask a question"Either explain what the fuck is going on or I'm going to bed."
>>31142255>Ask a question"Can we just negotiate here and settle things peacefully?"
>>31142255>Go with TeacherGotta honor our deal
>>31142255>Ask a questionWhy should we?
“Time out,” you make a T with your hand, “No seriously, what’s going on?”“Please step away from him,” Kaoru repeated, “He is a dangerous man who is using you for his own gain.”“We made a deal, Sikh,” Teacher’s tone shifted to terse annoyance, “He is doing this out of his own free will.”“He is doing this out of his own ignorance Teacher,” Sivan starts.“He’s asked his questions Hazrat and then some,” Teacher replied and turned to Kaoru, “And magicians like you are even more dangerous for him. You work your magics on him without his consent and hope that he remains ignorant to further your own insidious ideals.”“So says the Father of Jiangshi,” Kaoru shot back.“Jiangshi?” you ask.“The Chinese vampires,” Sivan answered without looking away.“It’s a long story,” Teacher sighed.They were circling him now.“Like I said, I’m not a vampire,” he continued, “I don’t drink blood, I don’t eat humans and I don’t engage in any forbidden practices.”“Last warning Torikov-san,” Kaoru spoke, “If you will not step away from him, we shall drive him off.”“I won’t take it badly if you ran away now kid,” Teacher shifted his footing slightly, “If you go with them it’ll make things tricky but we can still find Reina.”You recognised this kind of tension. A fight was going to break out.>Take Teacher’s side>Step away from Teacher>Find cover
>>31143130>Take Teacher’s sideKyril made a deal and he is going to damn well stick to it.
>>31143130Use TK, stop this fcking madness.
>>31143130>Take Teacher’s sideWe still havent given him our answer.
>>31143130>>31143186TK these dumb fucks apart until someone gives us a straight answer
>>31143130>Take Teacher’s side
>>31143130Teacher isn't glowing red is he?
>>31143290Nope, still green. If it was red, I would have told you.
>>31143290He's green. The other two are yellow.
>>31143304...is our magivision colorblind?
>>31143130>Take Teacher's side"Im sorry I made a deal and I still owe this guy an answer."
You made your decision as Kaoru lunges at Teacher. Your hand rose up and your Ability interrupts. Her eyes shifted focus to you as she falls back to the ground. Teacher’s back was to you his left angled up to deflect a downwards blow from Sivan’s weapon. His right hand has an extended fist that had driven itself in to the vampire hunter’s chest. The force of the blow had knocked off both combatants’ hats.“We made a deal,” you say, “and I still owe you an answer.”“I meant before I left Academy City,” Teacher smiled back, “Alright, lesson number two. A fight is about control.”He pushed the vampire hunter off balance easily. From the looks of it Sivan didn’t look like he could even lift his bardiche any more. He was grasping his chest with his left hand, where his heart was.“Once one side obtains absolute control they are the winner,” Teacher turned and picked up his hat, “Knock outs and killing are some ways to get it but I prefer Sun Tzu’s method.”“What’s that?”“Removing their will to fight. Think you can do that?”“Torikov-san I know you are not a normally a bad judge of character but please, do not listen him and come quietly,” Kaoru’s plea didn’t match her determined expression.>Attack, attack, attack>Talk her down>Surrender>Pretend to surrenderWrite-ins will be useful for all options
We should definitely keep these badass magic eyes. Can magic users see that we have them? Our eyes don't look any different, right?
>>31143864>Talk her downFuck wheres all the diplo-Mancers when you need them?
>>31143864>Talk her downLet's give her a taste of the Touma sermon.
>>31143345You still see colour perfectly fine, unless that's not what you're asking.
>>31143864>Talk her downI have no idea what to say, but yeah.
>>31143864>Talk her down"It didn't have to go this far with the Anglicans. You keep leaving me in the dark and then just expect me to fall in line with whatever you say, Not to mention the spells you cast on me. the tracking spell? Trust is a two way street and you're not meeting me half way.
>>31144029>"you're not living your life correctly!"
>>31143864>Talk her down"Back off. Me and Teach here are working together for now and it has nothing to with you. Also take it easy on putting spells on me without my consent, I thought maybe I could trust you more than that." Then leave with teacher.
>>31143981I was making a joke about seeing red aura's as green due to how we were given second sight.
>>31144322Oh okay. I don't get it though because that's not how colour blindness works.
Maybe tricking them would work since it appears that Teach only needs to get one good blow to take them out of the fight.
If we're gonna do a speech we'll need to borrow Teacher's fedora to increase our INT and CHA.
“Remember how we handled the Anglicans?” you started.“I recall losing a hand yes,” Kaoru answered.“That’s exactly it. You lost a hand that time but if Teacher here is as dangerous as you say what are you going to lose this time?”“I am prepared.”“Yes but is it necessary? We managed to come to resolve the Anglican problem with words eventually.”“I cannot presume to know the future. It is also partially up to you to determine whether I must trade my life or not for your protection.”“My protection? You call leaving me in the dark and expecting me to fall in line whenever you say so protection?”“I have given you all relevant pieces of information you need. What do you expect more from me?”“How about some trust then? I forgive you for that time you erased my memory but is it too much to tell me about the spells you cast on me without my knowing or consent?”She deflated a little at that.“How can I trust you then? You keep going out to get in fights, hurting others and yourself in the promise. Now you’re working with the Father of Jiangshi, a man who is responsible for the birth of Chinese vampires.”“It is to my eternal regret,” Teacher did not deny it, “But I am simply looking for my wife.”“Your wife is a vampire!” Kaoru retorted before turning back to you, “For this once I will trust you. If you betray my trust, I will wash my hands of you.”[1/2]
>>31144136This actually sounds like it just might work
She put away her dagger before helping Sivan limp to the edge of the building. A wisp of green “smoke” swirled in to your sight turning yellow as it crossed halfway between you and Kaoru’s hair. She left without a fight.“That could have gone better,” Teacher commented.The time is nearing midnight, the weather is cold, the date remains unchanged.>Keep hunting>Ask Teacher a question>Call it a night
>>31145314"Could have gone worse."
Sorry, guess I missed a couple sessions here because i'm confused.We're fighting vampires? Aren't they basically God-like beings in Toaru?
>>31145314>Ask Teacher a question"how the hell do you invent vampires?"
>>31145314>Ask Teacher a questionHow do you make an entire subset of vampires?
>>31145314>Ask Teacher a questionCan you vouch for your wife's nature? I consider her my friend and the last thing I want is another confrontation like that.
>>31145352They drink blood and have infinite life force, because they are immortal, which means they have infinite mana, which means they can do anything they want and supercharge any spell far beyond what it should ever be capable of with no repercussions at all. That's all that is actually confirmed about them, IIRC.
>>31145352Their abilities make them practically invincible. Practically.
>>31145352teacher is just looking for his vampire waifu.also Bored, would the chiang shi make them count rice trick work?
>>31145399They're also so incredibly hard to find that no one is even sure they exist. Even Crowley wasn't sure until Aisa came along.And they've gone the whole series, through multiple near-Gods coming along, without getting involved or apparently being hurt in any way.
>>31145399Can you kill them with sunlight or driving a stake through their heart?
>>31145564Nope.>The magical energy that magicians used could have been described as similar to gasoline. In other words, using their lifespan and life-force, the “crude oil”, was refined via breathing, blood flowing, and thinking into “gasoline” for simpler use.>Thus, magicians were not omnipotent. No matter how they sought for high-leveled magic, the amount of gasoline was finite.>However, the certain creature had no such limitation.>That certain creature had the ridiculous characteristic of immortality, meaning that they possessed infinite magic power. Even if the Earth’s resources were to eventually run dry, the magical power of the creatures would continue on.>Cain's descendants: the vampires.>They were, for certain, not the feeble creatures depicted in fiction that could be dealt with by a cross or sunlight. In fact, one was enough to initiate a nuclear-level global calamity.
>>31145564Nope. You'd probably need a surprise attack to pull it off even if it did, so good luck. Basically, it's just about the worst possible case for everybody and anybody who isn't Deep Blood.
>>31145597Where can we sign up to get vamped?There's really no drawbacks.
>>31145619Even a surprise attack probably wouldn't work. Physically they're more than likely at least on par with Saints, who laugh at the speed of bullets.Just one vampire is probably close to Fiamma-tier.
>>31145597so just vampire nip lady is the only way?
>>31145644That's why I said "good luck." I meant to imply it wasn't something a normal person could ever hope to pull off.
>>31145678Unless you have one of the high-tiers on your side. Izzard seemed to think he could subdue a vampire, but who knows if he was right or not.
>>31145742Did he say that? I thought he was just going to try and barter their services or something.
>>31145742>Izzard Kind of an idiot. Though who knows with his powers. That and this sounds more like different vampires then the type he was looking for.
>>31145989Yeah, especially given that these guys were apparently created relatively recently, whereas the vampires in the Deep Blood Arc were descended from Caine VTM style.>>31145983Think so. He was planning to either apply their method of memory to Index, or just turn her into a Vampire if that didn't work.
We really should have brought some garlic, or at least eaten some garlic dishes.
“Could have been worse,” you spoke after Kaoru left, “I consider her a friend.”“Then let us be done with this quickly.”You both started towards the west. You were heading towards School District 17.“How you make an entire subset of vampires by the way?” you asked Teacher.“I guess I have some time to kill,” he lapsed in to thought for a bit, “How much do you about how magic is done?”“Belief right?”“The short version yeah. The Jiangshi came in to being through belief and it is all my fault,” he hung his head, “My name is Zhuge Liang and historically, I died in 234 aged 53.”You jumped about a metre back.“I had originally wanted to extend my life by twelve years at the Wu Zhang Plains but it was disrupted by an enemy attack. The ritual extended my life obviously but it wasn’t by twelve years, but twelve million years. It also made me die of illness, as was ordained by the Heavens, but I woke up soon after I was interred at Mount Dingjun. I suppose the grave keepers saw me. It probably spawned several legends before a scholar during the Qing dynasty codified it in his grimoire. I am not a Jiangshi and never was but the belief was there so they must exist. As a result, they call me many titles. Some even call me the Second Progenitor, father to a race of monstrous and definitely magical creatures. The First was definitely Cain.”[1/2]
“Well that’s my story, whether you believe it or not is up to you,” Teacher concluded his tale, “Now I think we’re here.”Before you stood several office buildings and there is little traffic this time of night. Above you red hued silhouettes gazed down upon you. You felt strangely oppressed.“I will take things from here. You will leave now before it gets dangerous.”>Leave>Stay
>>31146994>Leavegotta obey teacher if you want a gold star.
>>31146994>LeaveI think we should be done with vampires as soon as we can.
>>31146994>Stay"I came this far right? I got your back teach"Guys I really wanna kick a vampire in the dick but I dont wanna die im conflicted
>>31146994>StayI want to see this through, and if things get too dangerous Kyril can jump out a window and TK into something soft.
>>31146994>>StayThe young will forever teach the old on how foolhardy and bold they can be.
>>31146994>LeaveWe may be Russian, but we aren't that crazy.
By staying we can check whether or not Teach is on the level.
>>31147293but he might not teach us karate if we disobey him
>>31146994>LeaveMight as well try and talk to Kaoru and learn more about Teacher and why there is so much hate for him.
Rolled 2Tie breaker then I guess.1. Leave2. Stay
>>31147407It's probably the whole 'Accidental father of a school of necromancy' thing.
>>31147425Welp, guess we're dead.Though I guess Teach can probably protect us. We're not going to be even slightly useful though.
>>31147590Methinks he'll be the one to kick our ass for even considering it.
I feel like this may be a long update, so while we wait, let's rank us.
>>31147653Aren't we level 2, close to 3?
>>31147669Well yeah, but I meant more ranking on the chart.Unabara is lower than Saraku for example, even though he's higher level.Personally think we're between Frenda and a Sister.
>>31147653Little above lesbian I think. Our hand to hand is pretty good as well as our body and we can make attacks from random directions.
>>31147721Nah, that level is about where the decent Level 4s hang out. Anyone around there would wreck us.
>>31147653Below pretty much everyone except the mosquito.
>>31147787Eh. Ryouta wrecks us in terms of firepower, but we could probably beat him, he's not that smart.We're like Hattori level.
>>31147653I feel like we are somewhere above hound dogs and below knights of England.
>>31147760Yeah I mean around that but bellow worst. The Random attacks are pretty good and we can put a fight. Biggest issue is foes with area attacks. But in general I would assume we would be a little bellow her or so. We could probably take a sister down and have a decent fight against lesbian assuming we didn't just shoot her. The area attackers or the people around her though could deck us out.
>>31147915Man I really don't think so. Hell, most of the people on the tier below Kuroko can wreck us.
>>31147971Pretty much anyone with formal training can beat Kyril down. He's still at the street thug level.
You didn’t leave. You only stood with your back to Teacher as several figures dropped down. Their figures were draped in a pulsating red aura though you’re not sure if that was your enhanced sight or an actual article of clothing they held. Your eyes strained to stay open and your head started to hurt. Blinking alleviated it somewhat.“Why are all my students so foolish and slow?” Teacher loudly complained.“What is the crystal of cold, a shower of sleet and the serpent’s onslaught?” one of the figures intoned.Nothing happened so far and you seriously expected more from these so-called vampires. Then Teacher tackled you out of the way. You managed to catch solid balls impacting where you once stood. They were made of ice. It didn’t stop there and Teacher was pulling you along until you yourself were able to get up and run. Amidst the laughter, one of the figures broke off in pursuit you both.“What is a swirling stream, a wide hot spring and the ground of fish?”You stumbled as your feet sank in to a really deep puddle. You were sure it wasn’t there earlier as Teacher lost his grip on you.“What is the bark of rivers, the wave’s roof and the doomed man’s undoing?”Frost did not just accumulate, it entombed Teacher. His expression full of worry.“Now, what do we have here?”If it wasn’t a vampire then it was definitely a magician. His smirk betrayed his intentions. He was going to play with you.>Attempt to flee>Attack him>Answer his question
>>31148085>Answer his questionWe're not going to get away, and most magicians have defenses set in place before they start this kind of shit. Better to keep him talking.
>>31148085>>Answer his questionIf he wants to play, then sure. Humor him. We ain't gonna take a vampire.
>>31148085>Answer his questionstall while looking for escape routes
>>31148085>Answer his question"Someone trying to make good on his word." This looks like a great way to powerlevel. We just need to survive.
>>31148146Getting the feeling that these vamps are different from the canon ones though.Teach getting caught in some ice doesn't exactly fit someone who can wreck the earth whenever they want.
>>31148085>Answer his questionOn a scale of 1 to 10, how much is Battler going to kill us?
>>31148159I don't think we level in the traditional fashion.
>>31148309No we don't.
>>31148159ThisAlso completly unrelated I just read the wiki on accelerator and holy fucking shit that guy is the most special snowflake ever jesus fucking christ
>>31148382>just read the wikiThere's like thirty novels and a manga series, bucko. Get to it.
>>31148382If you're talking about the magic, it's not like it's actually all that useful for him. He has to spend the whole time he's using it trying not to explode into chunks.
>>31148394I just recently finished the anime was going to move on the manga and save the novels for last atleast thats the best way to read from what ive heard
>>31148493There's alot of different ways to go according to alot of different people.The way I went through Raildex was a total clusterfuck of timelines and canon, but I got through it alright.
>>31148493The Index anime cuts lots of content, and I think there was a pretty bad manga, but I can't be sure. Read the novels. And then there's the Railgun manga. There's also a Railgun anime except its shit with tons of noncannon filler because the director's waifu an irrelevant side character.
He just trapped Teacher in ice. That alone spoke of his level of power and he was definitely out of your league.“Just someone trying to make good his word,” you answered.It elicited a laugh, a chilling one. You saw it as he laughed. In his mouth were two long pointed canines.“Here I thought curfew would be enough. No matter, I riddle you this. What is the children’s scourge, the battle’s mark and the canker’s seat?”You didn’t get to answer as several lines appeared on your shirt. You recognised blood. It was yours as the pain started. Crisscrossing your body, you felt it. Lines upon lines were being cut and wedged opened. It started from your chest but it started moving along your body and headed towards your limbs. The only reason it stopped was because your tormentor found a large icicle through his heart.“You!” he turned to snarl at his assailant.Teacher stood behind him, a white fan in his hand though covering most of his face. It was made of pristine white feathers and set in a golden handle.“Lesson number three, when in doubt, double check,” Teacher’s voice was smug.Ripping out the icicle, the vampire turned and threw it back at Teacher in one smooth motion. Teacher paid little to attention to the being pierced in the heart and didn’t break his stride as he moved closer.“Since when were you were the impression that I could be killed?” he asked the vampire.As the vampire was distracted you,>Run>Find cover, attend to wounds>Learn from this

>>31149695Probably not I think the first one is the cold or iceand the second one might be pain
Slowly you pulled yourself away around the corner, bleeding and in pain. But you weren’t going to miss this. Even if you had to staunch the bleeding through feeling and half attentive, tou could not, would not, avert your eyes. Sure, you didn’t have magic or understood it like Teacher or a long-lived vampire could but you could see it. Teacher only nodded imperceptibly once you were behind cover.“I may not be immortal like you,” Teacher was surely smiling behind his fan, “but I don’t need to be.”The green mana that enveloped Teacher coalesced in to a ball and shot forward like a beam, removing the vampire’s arm. Far from inconvenienced the vampire retaliated with blow that twisted Teacher’s neck a full rotation. The white fan came down regardless accompanied by a swath of flame that consumed the pair of inhuman beings. Only the vampire started screaming.“Oh, are you perhaps not accustomed to being burned alive?” Teacher jeered.He had stepped out of the fire unscathed. The vampire crawled out, his clothing burning and his flesh cooked but undefeated. You noted how his arm was and body was starting to undo the damage that Teacher inflicted.“You see, you can have all the mana in the world,” Teacher continued lecturing, “But you still perceive and feel like a normal human. I don’t need to kill you. I only need to break you.”The fire returned. Over and over the vampire was subjected to the flames until at last it fell silent, its resistance futile.[1/2]
>>31149939Teacher only spent a brief moment with the inert vampire before it turned to ashes. When he was done, he gave you a look and a question. The excitement over you notice that you were feeling light-headed.“Do you know why I let him hurt you?”You don’t know and you didn’t have the mind to think up an answer nor a response.“Let it be a lesson then.”Those were the only words you could catch before unconsciousness took you.Episode 23 end.

>>31149623>Are the riddles just part of a spell or if we answer them correctly it ends its effects? or do we win a prize? Like cake or shoes or another day to liveHmm. Nah.>>31149976Each riddle is a complete spell incantation in itself, judging from what happens each time one finishes. The riddle is a roundabout descriptor of the effect that's gonna be applied.

You are Hazrat Sivan ibn Hakim, Islamic Sufi Mystic and vampire hunter. Thanks to your connections with the Sikh Khalsa you were able to find suitable lodgings in this city of non-believers. The theological is not much your domain, you weren’t here to preach and convert. You were here to hunt. Your host is a young man who has been exposed to the world of magic though he himself isn’t religious or otherwise. You trust he will be a good host given that he has taken the initiative to defend his home from the very monsters you hunt. Of course that trust is then shaken when he approached someone he should not have.The target of his conversation is an unbelievably old man by the pseudonym of Teacher. You weren’t close enough to eavesdrop of course. It would be incredibly foolish to try. He was the Second Progenitor known as, “The Sleeping Dragon,” and even more powerful than the monsters you hunted. Their conversation done, Teacher walks off in the opposite direction though you’re sure he’s actually coming for you next.“My my, another Hazrat eh?” he appears behind you as if on cue, “I hope you’re not here for Reina.”Your response is,>”Back off on the boy Teacher.”>”What are you up to this time?”
>>31150291>”Back off on the boy Teacher.”
>>31150291>”What are you up to this time?”Let's see how he answers.
>>31150291>”What are you up to this time?”
>>31150291>>”What are you up to this time?”

Reina you recall was the ‘wife’ of Teacher. You’re not sure what could drive a man to marry a monster who fed on the blood of humankind. Oh wait, that’s right, he was also practically immortal and long lived as her. That wasn’t the problem though. The problem was that you now had a complication in your duty to hunt vampires. You were sworn to hunt them all down but the man, by the technical definition, was certainly going to get in the way if you made moves against his significant other.“What are you up to this time?”He seemingly glided across the distance between the two of you. His gaze measuring you from head to toe and as close as he was you remain outwardly unperturbed.“Aren’t you a bit young for a vampire hunter?”“Answer the question Teacher.”“I’m not up to anything. Reina on the other hand could be. Care to find out what it is?”“Good luck with that,” another male voice interrupted.It was leaking huge quantities of mana, nicely suited up and had blonde hair but the clincher was the fangs. Even without your mystic tools you could tell that this was definitely a vampire. Teacher was eying it like he wanted something out of it>Strike the abomination down>See what Teacher is up to

Words were unnecessary and any other choice was an anathema to your duty. Thus you let Him in as your hand reaches for your weapon. He is your strength and the reason you can even approach the level the level of the monsters that you hunted. What surprised you however was the fact that Teacher was right behind you.The abomination’s smug smile turns to a ghastly grimace as your bardiche cleaves through its supposed protections as if it were nothing. Only at the last moment did it bend backwards unnaturally to avoid being bisected. Teacher pins it down with a strike that snaps its shins loudly. Its wails are unheeded as you bring down His judgement on it and decapitate it.“Would it have killed you to wait?” Teacher complains.“No, but I cannot show mercy to monsters such as these,” you reply.“I guess I’ll have to interrogate the next one we come across then.”“If I don’t kill it first.”“Is that a challenge?” you nod, “Then you’re on kid.”Destroying the body of the vampire sets you back in the race to the next but it must be done to ensure the dead remain dead.>Follow Teacher’s trail>Strike out on your own
>>31151418>Follow Teacher’s trailThis man consorts with heretics and mutants we cant let him out of our sight

You won’t let the heretic get the better of you here and leaving him to his own devices is simply asking for trouble. When you do catch up to him, he is using a street sign as an improvised bludgeon against several more vampires. How he caught their attention you care not as you wade in to the fray.“Hah I was hoping you’d show up,” he stands back to yours, “These young ones don’t seem to want to talk.”“Nobody wishes to talk to you if they could help it Teacher.”“Please, you’re just jealous you’re not my student.”“As if I have need for your teachings.”The stop sign cleaves several heads off their respective shoulders.“Whelp, didn’t mean to do that.”“Are you sure you are not trying to help me under false pretences?”He shrugs and gets back to hunting leaving you with several more corpses to dispose of. The night was still young and the competition was going to be fierce.Interlude end. We continue next Wednesday. I blame everything on DST.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorHealing episode.
